FPU to raise rates yet again


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Florida Public Utilities .Co. 1has
petitioned the state.Public Utilities
Commission for a midcoursee fuel
adjustment" that would raise rates
yet again for island customers.-
Under the proposal filed by FPU,
residential customers in Fernandina
Beach would pay $131.70 for. 1,000
kwh of electricity, an increase of $9.31
when compared with the current


amount of $122.39.
The rate for residential customers
has more than doubled since fall 2006,
when Fernandina Beach customers
paid $58.52 for 1,000 kwh of electric-
ity.
If approved by the Public Service
Commission at a March 17 hearing,
the latest increase would be applied to
meter readings on and after March
27, FPU said in a letter going out to
customers.,
"The purpose of the request is to


collect the projected under-recovered
fuel and purchased power costs
through Dec. 31," FPU said. Its
"Fernandina Beach Division will have
under-recovered $2,671,081, due to
increased costs charged to FPU for
the purchase of electric power to
serve its customers."
Fuel and purchased power costs
are passed on directly to customers
"with zero profit" to FPU, the com-
pany said.
Any customer, comments regard-


ing the proposal should be addressed
to: Director, Division of the
Commission Clerk and Administrative
Services, Florida Public Service
Commission, 2540 Shumard Oak
Boulevard, Tallahassee FL 32399-
0850. Customer comments should

Windows glow in St. Peter's


PHOTOS BY HEATHER A. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
The Tucker window, above, provides a back-
ground for the Rev. George D. Young III to dis-
play a copy of The Stained Glass Windows of St.
Peter's Episcopal Church. The cherub windows,
right, in the sacristy are the only ones like them
in the United States.


'The windows tell a lot of the history
of our church, of our community
and of our faith.'
THE REV. GEORGE D. YOUNG III, RECTOR
ST. PETER'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH


HEATH ER A. PERRY
SNews-Leader
"It was a labor of love for everyone involved," said,
Parish Life Director Rich Smith of the publication-of The
Stained Glass i'indows of St. Peter' Episcopal Church. '.
The brainchild of -parishioner Jerry Torchia. the book'
is part of the church's sesquicentennial anniversary cele-
bration.
"Everyone was so excited working on it," said Smith.'
Jennifer Lasserre, Delores Lord and;Ray Barbee did
much of the research and writing. Carolyn Phanstiel did
the editing. Toby Atkinson, Katie Groover. Janet Haves,
Marge Wilson, Brien Laing and Neil Blaylock provided
research assistance. Torchia did the bulk of the original lay- ,
out and design, assisted by Charles Litrico. Caroline'
Bloch linger completed the final
draft.
Additional assistance was
provided by the Amelia Island
Museum of History, John
Easley. Lee Watanabe and the
Rev. George D. Young III, rec-
tor.
Smith acted as general
administrator, making sure the
book was printed, shipped and
'merchandised.
Dedicated to Young and the
original founder, the Rev. Owen
P. Thackara, the book's intro-
duction gives a brief history of
"The Jewel of Centre Street."
Edward Colegate of Ndw York City made 16 of the
original 17 stained glass windows, which initially cost
between $150 and $175 each.
All of the church's 17 original windows were damaged
beyond repair in afire on Feb. 25, 1892. The fire, set3by an
arsonist, also completely gutted the interior as well as the
roof, tower, floors and furniture.
The church vestry quickly set about rebuilding and
on May 7, 1893, services were held in the restored church.
Over the years, various windows have been restored and
dedicated to family members, a few at a time.
In the 1990s, the church exterior was refurbished and
four new stained glass windows replaced those with filler
glass.
The book offers detailed photographs and descriptions
of 29 windows, beginning with the exquisite Holy Innocents
triple window that memorializes 36 children who died

County cameras can


'see through' walls


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Firefighters and law enforcement
officers know that in their line of work,
when lives are on the line, what you
can't see can be deadly.
Luckily for those who work in pub-
lic safety, the days when fighting fires
involved little more than a red truck
and a hose are long gone, and police
officers have far more tools at their dis-
posal these days than the standard
badge and gun.
One tool that has proven usefulfor
firefighters and police is the thermal
imaging camera, which operates by
reacting to heat waves, such as body
heat emitted from a human being.It's
not X-ray vision, but it's close. And for
the past fewyears, the-Nassau County
Sheriff's Office has been instrumental
in ensuring that the cameras, which
cost anywhere from $12,000 to $18,000
each, are available to not only Nassau
County deputies but to county fire-
fighters as well. ,
"(The cameras) pick up body heat,
so they're able to identify if there's a
person somewhere inside the resi-
dence," said Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves. "It's amazing ...
you're able to see somebody inside
and where they're located."
Seagraves said deputies can use
the cameras for anything from serving
an arrest warrant to, potentially, a
hostage situation. About eight years
ago, then-Nassau County Sheriff Ray'
Geiger purchased seven thermal imag-
ing cameras- one for nearly all of the
Nassau County Fire Rescue fire
trucks.
"It was like space-age technology,"
Nassau County Fire Chief Chuck
Cooper recalled. "We were one of the
first fire departments in the state to
have technology this advanced, even

Mattox demonstrates how ther-
mal imaging cameras locate peo-
ple or animals inside a building.

before Jacksonville."
About three years ago, Seagraves
used the department's law enforce-'
ment trust fund to purchase 12 addi-
tional cameras, enough to fully equip
the volunteer fire stations in the coun-
ty as well. And the sheriff's office and
the fire department have a standing
agreement: the cameras stay at the
fire stations, but deputies can stop by
and pick up the cameras for police
work when needed.
Cooper said firefighters bring the
cameras out on all calls. They can be
used to locate the source of a fire by

FPU Continued from 1A
2007 and 2008 to account for
increased fuel costs and for
increased company expenses
reflected in the base rate.
Among them was a 17 per-
cent increase last August, a 7
percent hike in May 2008, a
35 percent increase in
January 2007, a 15.5 percent
rise in October 2007 and
smaller increases in
November 2007 and January
2008.
FPU riled customers ear-
lier this year by imposing
new deposits on some com-
mercial and residential
accounts. In some cases,
businesses were assessed
'new deposits of thousands
of dollars on top of existing
deposits. Some residents
have been asked to pay hun-
dreds of dollars in additional
deposits on their FPU
accounts.
The company is review-
ing that policy after receiv-,
ing a blizzard of local com-
plaints.

WINDOWS
Continued from 1A
here during a yellow fever
epidemic in 1877.
Often mistaken for a
Tiffany, The Doctors window
was dedicated in memory of.
two, doctors who came to
Fernandina to help with that
same epidemic and ended up
becoming victims them-
selves.
The beautiful cherub win-
dows, located in the sacristy
behind the pulpit, have the
distinction of being the only
set of such windows existing
in the United States. Another
set at All Angels' Church in
New York City was damaged
by fire.,
Young said the incredible
photography of Jan Johannes
really makes the windows
come to life:
The book's conclusion
states, "Our windows reflect
many decades of history, the
essence of St. Peter's, and'
are a testimony that, like all
families, we are loved, grief-
stricken, inspired and memo-
rialized."

CAMERAS
Continued from 1A
indicating where inside a
home is the hottest. Fire-
fighters have also used the
technology to locate victims
of vehicle accidents who
have been ejected from a
vehicle at night, and they've
been used to locate people
in wooded areas.
Seagraves said he was
impressed with the cameras
from one of the first times
he used one as a law enforce-
ment officer.
"I was on.,the S.W.A.T.
team at the time, and we had
to find a guy in a house," he
said. "He was barricaded up
in the attic, and we were able
to go up there and find him,
using the thermal imaging
camera."
Still, he said, generally the
firefighters utilize the tech-
nology more than his
deputies. But he'd like to see
that change. '
"It'd be nice if they could
take one every time they
respond to a call,"' he said. "I
wish my guys would get to
using it more, I'd like them to
take that technology with
themanduseit...youhaveto
know where the bad guy is
or, in some cases, where the
victim is."
Cooper said his current
wish list for his department
would be more, and. newer,
thermal imaging cameras to
add to.the county's current-
stock.
"The newer ones actually
let you know whatthe exact
temperature is; and the trans-
mitters on them are much
better than the ones we have
now," he said. "They also
have a feature where you can


tape what you're seeing ...
,(and) possibly use that for
investigation later."
Cooper said he's looking
into grant opportunities, but
he admits it could be a while
before the department gets
the latest cameras, "due to
our current economical
times."
"Everybody wants what's
newer," he admitted. "But
what we have is pretty good."

through the county attorney's
office. It's pretty close to slander
when you say that Mr. Chism
misrepresented ownership of

criticize Seaman for attempting
to direct county policy.
Seaman turned in a letter of
resignation two days later,
according to County Coordi-
nator Ed Sealover. Seaman's res-
ignation took effect immediate-
ly, and an interim county
engineer has been appointed,
Sealover added.
. "(On Feb. 26) I met with
Jonathan Page and appointed
him the interim engineering
services director," he said. "...
He's been there for a number of
years and holds the title of

Commission Chair Barry
Holloway said Monday that
Page would be a capable inter-
im director. "Short term as'far
as the county's concerned, I
don't think there will be any
problems or any missed steps,"
he said. "... I have confidence

.added. "Furthermore, I have
not received due process with
regard to written or verbal dis-
ciplinary action."
Seaman also pointed out that
he received an overall rating of
86 in his November 2008 per-
formance evaluation, and a note
that he was "an asset to the
organization."
"I have not been given any
explanation as to what has
occurred in the past three
months to cause my termina-
tion with 6 hours' notice," he
wrote.
Sealover, however; dis-
missed Seaman's complaints.
"He did get a positive evalua-
tion in November, but he never
turned his evaluation form in
until the day we brought up the
question of the termination," he
said Monday. "... Evaluations
are always snapshots in time.
Just because you were acting
such-arid-such way in
November doesn't mean that
automatically carries over for-
ever. He was going one way,
and the board wanted him to
go another way.
"As far as progressive disci-


pline ... that is normally some-
thing for when you're going
against the policies and proce-
dures," Sealover added. "This
was a performance issue. This
was an issue that the board had
no confidence that he was able
to carry out the tasks that he
was assigned."
Sealover said Seaman had
had repeated problems sub-
mitting agenda requests to the
board in a timely manner, and
had recently asked for a dead-
line extension for an impact
fee report he had been given
about six months to prepare.
"He was not doing things that
were inappropriate. He was just
not meeting expectations, and
the feeling was that there was-
n't going to be a turnaround,"
Sealover said. "When you let
somebody go, it's, not some-
thing that you take any great
pleasure in, but sometimes it
.has to be done."
Sealover said he would ask
the commission at its March 11
meeting to advertise Seaman's
position so the vacancy can be
filled.

SB U SIN ESS WEDNESDAY. MARCH 4,2009/NEWS-LEADER

________________BUSINESS


The faceless analyst quipped
about our declining economic
conditions: "Politics and finance
are inexorably intertwined."
This in an unintentional and
ill-fated marriage: The financial
markets are moving on every
utterance or gyration by politi-
cians. The markets are
designed to be mostly "free"
from intervention.
However, governments
must be involved in the mar-
kets right now. It's likely the
only thing that can reverse the
decay and damage from a fal-
tering housing market and a
global credit and banking cri-
sis. Meanwhile, political lead-
ers on the U.S., state and local
levels are having a field day sec-
ond-guessing decisions.
Nassau County Commis-
sioners are questioning the
clerk of courts, John Crawford,
on how he has invested the
county's funds. Like 800 other
counties, cities and school dis-
tricts in Florida, Crawford put
millions into a pooled fund set
up by the state.
The fund had $40 billion
invested in it at one point. Its
aim is to derive a little higher
return than a money-market
fund. These pooled funds are
common in other states also.
Gov. Charlie Crist and other
top-level politicos oversee the
fund, through the State Board
of Administrdtipn. Safety has
been the overriding factor, not
performance. (Thesame board
also handles the state pension

These can-

have since


leached through financial sys-
tems everywhere.
Some municipalities pulled
out their monies from the state
fund, learning of the unnerving
presence of these faulty, sub-
prime mortgages. The state
then' restricted withdrawals,
fearing. a 'run" on the fund.
The county has therefore
been unable to remove some of
its money, to the tune of about
$2 million. In all, the county still
has $7 million invested in it. It is
implied that the state will back
the "frozen" funds. -
One commissioner sent a
'letter containing 20 questions,
about Crawford's decision to
use the state fund and why
he didn't pull all the county's
money at the first sign of trou-
ble. Hindsight, particularly in
this case, is extremely useful.
As clerk, Crawford's job is to
invest the county's funds. To
crucify him over investing in

the state fund is unfair, as if he'
were negligent. This subprime
fallout blindsided even the most-
seasoned money managers.
The state board has taken
steps to provide liquidity to any
frozen assets. It has sort of quar-
antined the bad assets into one
fund. This appears to be a rea-
sonable solution to a con-
founding situation.

FCC is now Florida State College


News-Leader
FCCJ has a new name -
Florida State College at
Jacksonville.
The former Florida
Community College at
Jacksonville, which has a cam-
pus in Nassau County the
Betty R Cook Center off A1A
in Yulee unveiled its new
name Tuesday.
The name change reflects
the changing mission of FCCJ -
or is that FSCJ to include four-
year degrees in addition to two-
year and vocational degrees.
The "State Board of
Education approved three new
bachelor's degrees for FCCJ in
January. The degrees in Early
,Childhood Education, Public
Safety Management and IT
Management brought the num-
ber of bachelor's degrees to
seven.
The college said the new
degree, programs would be
operating by this fall.
"All of our bachelor's
degrees,' including the three
new programs, are developed
to respond to significant
employer needs and to great
career opportunities for gradu-
ates," said college President
Steven R. Wallace in a press


release at that time.
The four other bachelor's
degree programs include a B.S.
degree in Nursing and B.A.S..
degrees in Fire Science
Management; Supervision and
Management; and Computer
Systems Networking and
Telecommunications.
The B.S. in Early Childhood
Education degree program is
focused on the social, emotion-
al, cognitive and linguistic com-
ponents of childhood develop-

Special Olympics canceled


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Special Olympics have been canceled
this year, but they're not gone forever, accord-
ing to the director of Exceptional Student
Education for the Nassau County School District
The event couldn't get off the ground this year
because no one could be found to replace vol-
unteer organizer Bob Hinton, Pauline Gregory
said Monday.
"Bob had been coordinating for years, and we
were unsuccessful in finding anyone from the
community that was willing to step up and take
his place," Gregory said. "We are very hopeful
that we will be able to partner with an outside
community group or an individual member of
the community (next year)." I
Hinton stepped down last year. "After the
Special Olympics was when he officially retired,"
Gregory said. "Prior to letting us know that he
was officially retiring, he was also communi-
cating with different individuals who had shown
an interest in the post, but he was unsuccessful
in finding an individual or a group that could sus-
tain that for us this year."
However, Gregory said that the Special
Olympics would be back as soon-as an organizer
is found. "It's definitely not over," she said.
But Bobby Wike of Yulee, a retired ESE


teaching assistant, said lack of a volunteer coor-
dinator was no excuse to cancel the games. "If
the kids don't participate at the local level, they
won't be able to go on to the state. It just makes
me angry," said Wike, who worked in excep-.
tional student education for 23 years at Yulee
Primary School. "We've got all those people sit-
ting on their butts at the county (ESE) office.
Why does a volunteer always have to do it?
Volunteers run all the games. Why couldn't one
of (the ESE employees) organize it? It's basically
the same every year. I mean, we've been doing
this for 35 years, and now not to have it just
because a volunteer retired?"
Wike said the Special Olympics had never
before been canceled. "It's important to the chil-
dren. There's not a lot of things that they get to
participate in that's theirs. They always look
forward to it," she said. "... I was there 23 years,
and we went every year and every year prior
to that, to my knowledge."
She added that coordinating the event would-
n't be too complex, given the system Hinton
left in place. "If three or four (ESE employees)
had gotten, together and made some phone calls,
it wouldn't have taken that much," she said.
"Bob had it pretty much set up, so all they would
have had to do is make some phone calls to get
things set up, and volunteers would do the rest."

Island Art Association


building moving ahead


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
The Island Art Association
is planning an expansion to its
existing building at 18 N.
Second St.
According to spokesman
Gary Rubin, the expansion is
needed because "the gallery is
woefully small" and a better
space, with higher ceilings, is
needed to display members'
artwork.
The association owns the
building, says Rubin, as well as
the lots next to it where the
expansion will take place. He
said the association was hop-


ing to use the old building, for-
merly a restaurant, for art class-
es. The association offers class-
es for children and seniors, said
Rubin, but would like to do
more for the community and
attract more art seekers.
Funds for the expansion will
come from the association's
reserves, which include mem-
bership fees, donations, grants
and proceeds from the Isle of
Eight Flags Shrimp Festival
held every year in May. The
Island Art Association,. said
Rubin, is the driving force that
brings the many artists to the
festival, and that is where it gets
the majority of its funds.

'Black Hand' squeezes business


commercial property on the corner
of Atlantic and 11th where we have
always tried to be good neighbors
and citizens for the community. We pay size-
able property taxes, maintain the right of way
at our own expense and even unclog the poor-
ly designed drainage system on the corner
during heavy rains. We spent several months
and many hard-earned dollars resurfacing,
remodeling and re-roofing the structure we
purchased five years ago. We.successfully
brought a desolate, decaying eyesore back to
life. This property is now the home to Red
Otter Outfitters, Chez Lezan Bakery, The
Scuba Station and several small offices.
So what has happened to prompt this letter?
I have had a visit from our city's Code
Enforcement/Licensing/Permitting officer,
aka "The Black Hand" (from the Godfather
movie). As a small business owner, I feel I am
taxed to death by city, county, state and federal
taxes, fees and licenses.
As the owner of Red Otter Outfitters, I have
maintained a small signboard since we opened
in April 2004 on the grass between the side-
walk and the street. We frequently change the
sign to advertise sales, events and new
arrivals. It is one of our best forn~is of adver-
tisement. Many visitors and locals will stop in
based on that sign. This translates into sales
for us and revenue for the city and state.
Last week, the city Code
Enforcement/Licensing/Permitting officer
removed the sign from the right of way and
told me I needed a "permit" to have the sign.
Upon questioning, I was told the permit fee


was based on the cost of the sign. I could keep
my sign as long as it remains on our property,
not on the right of way, for a price. My fee, I
was told, would probably run about $60 annu-
ally. I paid $50 for the sign.
So my sign's size, color or design is not the
problem the fact that I am not paying the city
to have the sign is the issue. After speaking
with several fellow business owners down-
town, I learned that they too have been visited
by the Black Hand of the city. Businesses are
being charged fees upwards of $100 annually
for having small planters outside their busi-
ness doors or for signage on the sidewalk.
However, these same downtown merchants
have been told they are responsible for keep-
ing the sidewalk outside their business clean.
There seems to be a pattern of the right of
way belongs to us but you are responsible for
the upkeep and then you can pay us if you
want to use or enhance it in any way. Does this
sound reasonable? No exception for the local
churches either; if you want to invite people in
to pray, you need to pay. The museum strug-
gles to continue providing this city with a won-
derful tour through history but they too have
been a victim of the city sign police.
Are homeowners advertising yard sales
paying (from which the city gets no revenue)?
Is the home for sale sign being charged? What
about the many signs the chain stores fre-
quently place on Sadler advertising sales?
There are times I have seen as many as 15
small signs in the right of way at.the corner of
Sadler and Eighth street. Is the advertiser pay-
ing per sign or at all? What about political sig-
nage? Do politicians pay and who pays for the


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Dogs running loose
Fernandina now has a dog park. If people feel
their dog really has to run free to enjoy good
health they should take it to the dog park. I am
an animal lover and have had dogs for years. My
dogs do not run free. They are leashed when
out for a walk. This' does not seem to have a
detrimental effect on their health. So far they
have all lived beyond middle teens in human
years.
I resent having someone's dog come running
up to me and my leashed dog and bothering us.
These dogs may be nice dogs, but they are not
my dog. And are not under owner's control as
they do not return to owner when called. (A pro-
viso under our leash law, I believe.)
The more our population has grown, the big-
ger this problem has become. Leash your dog!

Sick teachers
Re: 'Teachers respond' and "Sick teachers,"
printed in Voice of the People on Feb 25.
I am a server at Brei''s Waterway afe.. I also
have a child that attends Fe r nandina Beach High
School. Several days after the incident with the
teachers, my child came home to tell me that
his teacher announced to his class that she had
food poisoning from Bretts. I vas shocked that
a teacher would announce this to a class. The
classroom is not a forum for anything other than
to educate. To pass along.a harmful statement
such as that is irresponsible on that teacher's
behalf.
I help support my family byr being a ser er at
Brett's. As we all know, times are tough and
every customer counts. We strive for excellence
at BreWts, not only in preparing and delivering our
food to the guest, but also in making it a great din-
ing experience for them. I along w ith my fellow
co-workers am a very con,-ieitious server who
always sanitizes and washes my hands at the
appropriate times. We do not know who or how
this virus came to our restaurant, but we do know
that it was not food poisoning. Did that teacher
bother to announce to her class the findings from
.the (Nassau County) Health Department? No, she
did not.
We, as servers at Brett's, take great pride in
our job and maintaining the quality standards
that are set by Brett Carter and his management
staff. I am sorry for the teachers who got sick, but


I am bothered by their willingness to make false
statements to students.

Re: 'Teachers respond," Feb. 25.
Bravo to a group of dedicated Nassau County
educators for having the stomach to state their
side of the story in the recent food poisoning
inquiry. I have to wonder at the wisdom of engag-
ing in a battle of words with a group of profes-
sional educators- especially English teachers! As
Shakespeare wrote, the truth will out.
I say, 'To the victors go the spoils!" (But not,
one hopes, spoiled food.)
In other words, don't mess with our teach-
ers. Lesson learned.

I was surprised to read that a total of 31 peo-".
ple dining at one of my favorite restaurants had
cnme down with upset.tummies.or, to puLitLnmore'
technically, norovirus gastroerit'eritis.'I was even
more surprised, however, to note the number of
grammatical errors in one of the two letters sub-
mitted by two groups of local schoolteachers
who had eaten at the restaurant and come down
with the virus. Perhaps "errors" is too strong a
word;let's say "irregularities."
Examples of these irregularities are "... the six
of us that ate salad ..." and "... we were the only
three people that became sick ..."
According to Fowler's Modern English Usage,
"a human antecedent is normally followed by
'who' rather than 'that' in a defining clause."
The letter submitted by the elementary school
group contained only one misuse of "that" and in
three places correctly used "who." The high
school letter, on the other hand, used "that" four
times.
Solely on the basis of the high school letter,
we wonder if it is the high school that is foment-
ing the rampant local use of the redundancy
"where at."

Copyrig t Material







Available from Commercial News Providers"


Flick, representing the chamber of commerce,
made a presentation that said, in part, that only
architects, developers, bankers and engineers
should be on the planning advisory board.
According to 'these recommendations that would
mean the removal 'of Bill Conger, Paul Condit,
Dick Bradford and others; I myself would not
be qualified if I was still on that board. He implied
that citizens are not qualified to sit on voluntary
citizen advisory boards; for example John Carr on
the Greenway committee or Charles Albert on the
PAB. Flick said he thought it was good we no
longer have an environmental board and even
went so far as to suggest that two members of
boards be non-residents when residency has
been the only requirement in the past.
Those boards are the voice of the people, the
opportunity to participate in the design of our
community. Their role is to let our elected officials
know the will and desires of the people.
Commissioners past and present have made it
clear they do not like advisory committees; they
do not like to hear the public's concerns. They
have eliminated some, ignored others and left
unfilled vacancies. If you don't have enough peo-
ple to form a quorum then you can't hold a meet-


ing and the next step is to dissolve the board.
They appoint and remove them at will, such as in
the case of Bob Howat, so clearly no further
restriction.is needed when they already have
absolute power over who sits on a board.
The other issue I was concerned about was the
suggestion that an ordinance be passed setting
time limits on the permits and planning process.
The suggested time limits were reasonable and
well planned and should be our goal, but it is
one thing for it to be policy and another to enact
it into law. Currently we have enough staff and
they are professional but it has not always been
so and we may find ourselves in that position
again. Someone leaves or is ill and we miss a
deadline that can't be avoided and where does that
leave us? Sometimes delays are unavoidable and
sometime we rush to judgment because of a
deadline. I believe these are guidelines we should
expect our city manager to oversee, to prevent
unnecessary delay, to be as responsible and pro-
fessional as possible but not put ourselves into a
bind legally by enacting what should be policy into
law.

VIEWPOINT/ROBERT M. WEINTRAUB/AMEUA ISLAND ASSOCIATION



County has $14 million to spend on roads


$14 million..That's how much money -
Nassau County has in collected impact fees
that it can use for roads and other infrastruc-
ture and provide local jobs but is not using
because county commissioners have not done
what is necessary.
In fact, the county has begun to refuhd the
money paid by developers years ago because
the time period to use the money is lapsing.
Impact fees are collected from developers
to cover the cost of new infrastructure needed
to service growth. The fees are presumably
passed on to new homebuyers. Currently,
developers must pay $2,697 per single-famnily
home for new or improved infrastructure.
(There is also a $3,726 school impact fee for
new or improved schools administered by the
school board.) The concept is that new home-
owners should pay for the cost of the new
roads, parks, police and fire protection, etc.
they will need, rather than putting an addition-
al tax burden on existing homeowners (that's
you and me).
There has been much finger-pointing to lay
blame for this sad affair between county com-
missioners and Clerk of Courts John
Crawford. Commissioners say Crawford has
made such a narrow interpretation of the law
that they are unable to use the funds. One
commissioner told us that money collected
from a developer on Blackrbck Road could
only be used to improve that street and not be
used to ease congestion on A1A even though
development on Blackrock has added to the
congestion and unsafe conditions on A1A. Two
commissioners said that because the county
can't use the impact fees, then the fees should-
n't be collected at all; they voted in January to


; continue an impact fee
moratorium.
Crawford denies this,
: saying he has only asked
the commission to follow
the law, which does not
put such narrow restric-
tions on impact fee use.
He says the failure of the
commission to do its
Weintraub homework is all that pre-
vents the use of the money.
To determine the truth,
the Amelia Island Association has looked into
statutory and case law and talked with people
knowledgeable of the situation. We have deter-
mined that the fault lies squarely with the
commissioners and their attorney who, as
usual, support developers over the interest of
the general public.
Florida does not have a statute that specifi-
cally authorizes impact fees for capital fund-
ing. Through a lengthy process over many
years, the courts have found that the home
rule power of Florida counties and municipali-
ties (local government can do whatever is not
covered by state law) as well as the Local
Government Comprehensive Planning and
Land Development Regulation Act, provides a
legal basis for impact fees.
(We recommend county commissioners
and their attorney familiarize themselves with
Chapter 22 of Juergensmeyer's "Florida Land
Use Law.")
In a landmark case involving the city of
Dunedin in 1976 the Florida Supreme Court
established the right of a local government to
apply an impact fee on new development. This


was strengthened in three 1983 cases involv-'
ing Palm Beach, Broward and Dade counties.
'These cases established a five-part test for
the validity of impact fees:
9 Documented estimates of cost of facilities
to be financed;
A reasonable formula for determining
how much of the new facilities should be
apportioned to new development;
The money should be spent for the pur-
pose for which it was collected;
Expenditure must be localized; and
A time limit set for their use and money
refunded if it is not met.
For example, let's say it is agreed that
improvements to Pages Dairy Road is the best
solution to easing traffic on A1A (an engineer-
ing study by C2MHill commissioned by the
county in 2006 determined this and provided
specific cost estimates for various stages of the
work).
In 2003 it was reported in this newspaper
that 10,000 new homes had been approved by
the county for the A1A corridor between the
Amelia River and 1-95. If there were 20,000
existing homes in this area then the new con-
struction increases roof tops by 50 percent.
Therefore, 50 percent of the cost of improving
Pages Dairy Road can be apportioned to
impact fees, thus meeting the court's test of a
"reasonable formula."
Further, the county has the lengthy and
detailed report on impact fees it commis-
sioned a couple of years ago from James C.
Nicholas of the University of Florida, who is
considered the state's preeminent authority on
impact fees. (Dr. Nicholas provided the ration-
ale for increasing impact fees to $9,000 per


house; the county buried the report)
With these two studies in hand, Nassau's
commissioners have what they need to meet
the court's first two requirements. Nassau
impact fees are designated for specific uses:
transportation, law enforcement, recreation,
etc. By using transportation funds to deal with
traffic added by new development the third
and fourth court tests will be met. County law
already has a time limit, thus meeting the fifth
court test.
To be specific: Nassau has $1.5 million in
its District 2 transportation fund and $6.8 mil-
lion in the District 3 transportation fund. Both
districts (from the unincorporated part of
Amelia Island to just west of US 17) is the loca-
tion of most of the home building in Nassau in
the past six years that has created the conges-
tion and unsafe conditions on A1A. There is
nothing to stop the county from applying that
combined $8.3 million to at least begin new
road construction to ease ALA traffic.
Nothing, that is, except the will of the coun-
ty commissioners. At their fingertips is all the
data, formulas and studies required by the
court to make the case for the use of impact
fees for improving Pages Dairy Road (or build-
ing a new east-west route wherever). All
County Clerk Crawford has asked for is that
they create a single document that uses this.
data to meet the court's five-part test.
By not taking this action, suspending the
collection of impact fees and ignoring the
Nicholas recommendation that impact fees be
increased, those we elected to protect our
interests have shifted the burden of new
roads, parks, police and fire facilities from
developers to you and me.


signs left behind that the city and county
cleans up and disposes of. Is there selective
enforcement of this city code?
I asked the Code
Enforcement/Licensing/Permitting officer
how long this code has been on the books. She
said it had been there for years. So why has
the city during the slowest months of the year
in the worst economy in the past 70 years
decided to enforce a code that hurts business-
es ability to produce revenue? The city should
be doing everything in its power to support
small business in our community. Small busi-
ness is the lifeblood of our small island.
If my business were to disappear would the
impact be felt at City Hall? If I quit paying prop-
erty tax, sales tax, business license fees, would
it matter? If the space at 1012 Atlantic were
once again empty and abandoned, would the
city be better off? So why make it more diffi-
cult to attract customers who help all of this
survive?
I personally employ six people as well as
patronizing the cleaning service, window
washer, yard man (who keeps the right of way
groomed), local banks, accountant, lawyer, fire
safety, alarm company, pest control, electri-
cians, carpenters, the computer repairman and
restaurants serving lunch. Multiply this by all
small business owners in the area and you
start to see the economic impact.
Why does the city not provide businesses
with guidelines for acceptable temporary sig-
nage.and charge no fee? This would make the
city a partner for business and less of a Black
Hand extorting a fee for allowing a business to
produce much needed income.

Shell games


W talkingg on the
beach one morn-
ing, a small scut-
tling movement
caught my, eye. I stopped and
watched while a clamshell
scooted along on little legs on
the beach above the surf line.
Wait! Clams don't have legs!
What the heck is this crea-
ture?
So, ever the zoologist, I
picked it, up to look. Turning
it over, I found a crustacean of
sorts, a crablike animal, solid-
ly affixed to half a clamshell.
As I was inspecting it, another
beachgoer came by, noticed
what I was looking at and
found another one. Together
we admired these new-to-us
strange creatures.
Like most beachgoers, we
both were familiar with her-
mit crabs, those crustaceans
that inhabit empty whelk
shells, or snail shells or the
shells of other types of gastro-
pod mollusks. From my years'
long ago working.as an aquar-
ist at Miami Seaquarium, I
know more about hermit
crabs than most people. In the
wild, hermit crabs can find
.their own hone to move into.
as they grow. hi an aquarium,
hermit crabs need some help.
When a hermit crab starts
to outgrow its existing shell,
it's time to give them netv
choices.
When you provision a tank
with a few more empty shells
a few sizes up from the crab's
current home, before long it,
will sidle over to them,
inspectingthem, and soon, in
a quick transition, the crab
will crawl out of its current,
home and move into another.
But these two creatures in
frpnt of us were not hermit
crabs. For one thing, they
were in half of a clamshell,
not a single, enclosed gastro-
pod shell. And the creature
had only three pairs of visible
legs, too, a couple pairs short
of those of decapodss" that it
most closely resembled. A '
slight tug at the animal did
not remove it from its,
clamshell, and.it was a mys-
tery how it could remain so
firmly attached. The longer I
inspected these critters the
more curious I got. I pho-
tographed them. then careful-"
ly set them back on the sand
to carry on with their lives. As
we watchedthey scuttled
away down the beach,-
clamshell raised again, little
legs running.
I couldn't wait to get home
to look them up on the
Internet and learn more. I
Googled all the terms I could
think of. "Hermit crabs \
Florida." "Crabs clam shells."
"Bivalves crabs." found out
lots about hermit crabs as
pets, crawls that eat molluks i
and vice versa.and even. ,
recipes for-seafood stew.
There was a lot of useftil infor-


nation out
there on the
Internet, but
our critter of
concern was
nowhere to
be found.
It was
Pft Htime to
invoke the
WILD' "big guns" of
WAYS the Florida
Museum of
Natural
Pat History in
Foster- Turley Gainesville.
An e-mail
with photos sent to my friend,
Dr. Fred Thompson, got for-
warded on to the marine
invertebrate specialist Dr..
Gustav Paulay, and quick as a
wink I was set. The creature,
it turns out, is Hypoconcha, a'
sponge crab, which instead of
carrying sponges carries
bivalve shells.
With that key word, and
Google, it was easy to find out
more. I found out that yes,
this crab is a decapod, like I
thought, but the missing pair
of legs were there, just modi-
fied into devices that some-
how hold onto a clamshell.
They hold on so tightly, in a
way not clear to science, that
it's a good thing I didn't tug
any harder or I would have
destroyed the crab in the
process.

I sure wish I had kept the
specimens that were at one
point in my hand. Like most
experienced beachcombers I
left the living specimens back
on the beach, rather than
stinking up my house with
decomposing "treasures." But
now it seems .that Dr. Paulay
would like some specimens
for the museum collection.
After all that the museum
does for me and you'readers
of this column, helping me
identify mysterious findings,
I'd like to return the favor.
And if you are a beachgoer,
you can help, too.
Please keep your eye out
for the "shellback crab," the
common name for the species
pictured here. If you find one,
put'it in a plastic bag in your
freezer, send me an e-mail
and 11 come pick it up and
take it to the museum. There
it will have an official museum
identification tag, and be
curated in the invertebrate
zoology collection, preserved
forever in alcohol, to add its
value to science.
Thanks for your help! It's
the least we can do for our
friends at the museum who
are always there to inform us
about the wonders of
Florida's natural world.

Carbon monoxide


poisoning a hazard


I The Florida Department of
Health urges Floridians to take
precautions to prevent carbon
monoxide poisoning during the
cold winter months. As tem-
peratures drop, the potential
for carbon monoxide poison-
ings and deaths rise.
Invisible, odorless and taste-
less, carbon monoxide is a
highly poisonous gas produced
by burning fuels such as gaso-
line, natural gas, kerosene,
charcoal and wood. Inside a
home, carbon monoxide can
come from a gas-fueled fur-
nace, gas water heater, gas
clothes dryer, gas ranges,
kerosene, space heaters, port-
able generators,.gas or thar-
coal .grills, fireplaces or wood
stoves. Anyone who suspects
symptoms of carbon monoxide
poisoning should go outside
immediately. If a person has
collapsed or is not breathing,
call 911 for emergency medical
assistance immediately from a
safer location (outside or from
a neighbor's'home).
Signs of carbon monoxide
poisoning include fatigue, chest
pain, impaired vision and copr-
dination, headaches and dizzi-


ness, confusion or nausea.
How to prevent carbon
monoxide poisoning:
Install and use fuel-burn-
ing appliances according to
manufacturer instructions.
Have fuel-burning appli-
ances inspected and serviced
annually by a licensed contrac-
tor.
Inspect exhaust ventila-
tion systems every year, includ-
ing chimneys, flues and vents.
Never burn charcoal
inside a house, garage, vehicle
or tent, even in a fireplace.
Avoid using unvented gas
or kerosene heaters in enclosed
spaces, especially sleeping
areas. "
Never leave an automo-
bile running in a garage, even
with the garage door open.
Do not leave the rear win- '
dow or tailgate of a vehicle open
while driving. CO from the
exhaust can be pulled inside
the car, van or camper.
Neveruse a portable gen-
erator indoors, including in
homes, garages, basements,
crawl spaces, sheds and other
enclosed or partially enclosed
areas.

tion site.
According to an official
report of the incident, deputies
were called to the scene after a
witness observed a vehicle
"ramming into a home several
times."
On the way there, a deputy
saw Lacey driving a vehicle
matching the suspect vehicle
description and stopped her.
When asked about red
stains on her shoes, she said
they were from spaghetti
sauce. When asked whether
she was involved in any crimi-
nal mischief to the home, she
reportedly confessed and said
no oneelse was involved.
According to the report, the
home was damaged not only
by a motor vehicle repeatedly
crashing into it, but also by
someone throwing eggs and
spaghetti sauce onfo the walls.
A black bag containing ajar
of spaghetti sauce and egg
yolks was reportedly found in
the back of Lacey's vehicle.'
She was arrested for bur-
glary, felony criminal mischief
and trespassing on a posted
construction site.
Fuel theft
More than 30 gallons;of
gasoline was reported stolen
from the North Hampton Golf
Course maintenance yard.
The theft was reported on
Feb. 22; according to a report
of the incident, the suspect
entered through a secure gate
and stole 31.6 gallons of gaso-
line.'
The person who reported
the theft told investigators he,
secured the gate about mid-
night Feb. 21 and did not
return to the area until just
before 6 a.m. Feb. 22. '
'"The complainant (said)
that as soon as he pulled up to
the gate, he discovered the
damage to the front gate ... that
the chain and lock on the gate
was not secured like, he left it
yesterday ... upon conducting a
further investigation. (he) fol-
lowedtire tracks on the ground
which led up to two fuel tanks,"
the report said. "(He) reported
that he discovered 31.6 gallons
of unleaded gasoline missing
from one of the fuel tanks."'
According to the report, nei-
ther the padlock nor the chain


showed any sign of having
been cut; the employee who
reported the theft told police
that several people have keys to
the fenced-in area.
The theft remains under
investigation.

.Depend On Us For Life."


The Fernandina Beach
branch of the Nassau County
Library System has something
new in the way of audio books.
Purchased through a grant
from Rayonier, the new format
is called Playaway.
The Playaway. contains an
entire book in a compact unit
about the size of a playing card.
No separate player is needed.
By depressing a button to
power up the unit and then
pressing play, one can listen as
much or as little as they want
throughout their day.
"Members of our teen board
chose most of the titles, which
range from adult and juvenile
fiction to non-fiction such as
learning a language, travel
songs, dev6tionals and so on,"
said Library Director Dawn
Bostwick.
"WVhat's nice about these is
they will resume at, the same
place you left, off," said
Bostwick, unlike books on CD,
which often must be re-cued if
the player happens to eject
them by mistake.
Earbuds are available for
purchase for M 1.50. Lanyards
are $1 : ,$' '1 .,
Those who have an mp3
adapter'can listen in their car.
"We may have those
adapters available for purchase
in the future," said Bostwick,
depending on howwell the new
item is received. ,
This format is very conven-
ient for the active lifestyle
because it can be listened to vir-
tually anywhere and it is com-
pact enough to. fit in a shirt
pocket.
The Fernandina Beach
branch library currently has 41
titles. Hilliard has that same
number on order.
"We'll see how it goes over.
We may order more if it be-
comes popular," said Bostwick;
The Plavaway books' are
located directly in front of the
checkout at.the library.

tact the Fernandina Beach

Pirate juniors looking ahead to senior hoops season


BETH JONES
Neivs-Leader


It still hurts. The pain from
losing to Ribault in the region-
al semifinal Feb. 24 has dulled
some, but the players are mov-
ing on and focusing' on next
season.
"It w,as a tough loss," said
Zach Rocheleau, one of nine
juniors returning next season
for the Fernandina Beach High
Schoolboys basketball team.
"It's weird because after
school I'm so used to having
practice or something dealing
with our high school basket-
ball team. I don't know what to
do now. It got to the point
where everything was about
our basketball team. It was cool.
Liked it."
The Pirates were 27-3 over-
all this season and captured the
school's first district champi-
onship since 1976. They hosted
the district tournament and
their two regional games. Pirate
Gym was filled for those last
three games.
"Every time I walked out
and I saw the crowd and heard
it, I got goose bumps," Roche-
leau said.
But he and the other return-
ing players are excited about,
another run next year.
"It will be a great team from
beginning to the end," Roche-
leau said.
He said the secrets to the
Pirates' success this seasofi
were "our defense, our shoot-'
ing and us playing as a team
and knowing our roles."
"The reason why we had
such success is because our
defense is so good," Andrew
Vrancic said. "Our offense goes
off our defense. We get fast
breaks. That's pretty much our
offense."
Vrancic said the highlight
of the 2008-9 season was beat-
ing Ribault in the District 4-3A
championship game Feb. 14.


But he too is looking ahead.
"We appreciate all the sup-
port, but come back next year,"
he said. "We expect another
district championship."
Patrick Garvin has had little
time to dwell on the hoops sea-
son.
"I'm pretty much over it
now. I moved on to baseball,"
he said.
* But, he too is excited about
the new season.
"I'm sure we're ready to.
work in the offseason and be
ready for next year," Garvin
said. "I expect more. We have
nine returners and we're going
to be full of experience."
Garvin said the season high-
lights for him were winning the
Port Charlotte tournament and
clinching the district title.
"We hadn't won a tourna-
ment away frbm here since I
have been here," he said. "And
the district, of course, 33 years.
So, it's big."
Garvin said finishing the.
season at home was a plus for
the Pirates.
"We play with these goals
and the same ball every day at
practice, so it was definitely an
advantage," he said. "And our
crowd was great."
Garvin said the team
enjoyed the ride.
"We all just got in the lock-
er room and laughed a lot," he'
said. "We had fun."
Billy Hunt agreed.
"It's a great group of guys to
have as teammates, fun tp be
around," he said. "I'm very
lucky to be with them and it
doesn't hurt that they're good.
basketball players too."
/ Hunt said h,`.s ready for
some, revenge and Ribault
should be prepared for the
2009-10 Pirates.
'"Now they know wv'rr seri-
ous and thrv'll have to play
their best to get one over on
us," he said. "We're just going
to, work hard in the offseason'


BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
Fernandina Beach High School juniors, from left, Bill Hunt, Patrick Garvin, Zach Rocheleau, Terin Dallas and
Andrew Vrancic have reason to smile over the basketball team's success this season, but they're also looking for-
ward to their senior season. The Pirate hoopsters went 27-3, clinched the first district crown for the program since
1976 and were just two wins away from the state Final Four. Shortly after the Pirates' district championship victory
over Ribault, the '09 went up on the gym wall. Nine juniors return next season.


and be ready to play."
Terin Dallas finished sec-
ond in steals to Carlos Holcey,
also a junior.
"Carlos brat me by four,"
Dallas laughs. "He got lucky.
He, got his. steals off my tips,
my deflections."
Earlier this season, FBHS
Coach Matt Schreiber said
Dallas was one of the best
defensive players he's coached.
. "You just move your feet and
watch the hips," Dallas said of
his defensive strategy. "You
have to be able to time it right.


When the ball goes to the
ground, you have to be quick."
Dallas is quick. He ran the
400m in 55 seconds last season
for the FBHS track team.
"I guess that's pretty good,"
Dallas said.
Dallas said the Pirates
weren't just teammates this sea-
son. They were friends.
"We're really close, all of us,"
he said. 'We have good chem-
istry. When we need some-
thing, we can call each other.
That's what helped us be so
good. We could trust each


other with a lot of stuff."
He too is looking forward
to next season.
"Nine of us are back. They
better watch out next year,"
Dallas said. "We'll be pumped
and hungry."
It didn't take long after the
game for the recognition to go,
up on the gym Wall, declaring
the Pirates the 2009 district
champs.
'That was probably the best
part of the whole season, when
we got to see that '09 go up
heree" Dallas said.


The Pirates haven't put the
basketball down, however.
They're together again, play-
ing in the adult league at Peck
Gym. They played their first
game Thursday and won.
"We're going to try to keep
the winning streak going,"
Hunt said. "Last year, we got
to the championship game and
lost that by two or three points.
Any loss hurts.
"We'd'like to get back there
and win it."

Pennington RRCAs national club writer of the year

ED HARDEE
For the News-Leader

Even when he was.8 years:
old, Bill Pennington was a
sportswriter in the making.
"Some of my best childhood
memories of growing up in the
northeast (Nashua, N.H.) were
going to see the Red Sox at
Fenway Park," Pennington said.
"I always begged my father to
get to the stadium at 4 o'clock
for a 7:30 game so I could watch
all of batting practice, infield.
practice and the pitchers shag-
ging fly balls in the outfield."
By the time he was 23, just
out of college, Pennington was
a sportswriter for real. During
a four-year stint' at the Savan-
nah News-Press, he was cover-
ing professional baseball -
the Savannah Braves double-A
farm team college basket-
ball and college football.
"One of the biggest thrills
of life for me was to walk into a
college football stadium on a
Saturday afternoon and sit up in
the press box," Pennington
said.
Now, at 52, he's still writing
about sports running, to be
exact as a columnist and con-

Bill Pennington regularly contributes to Runner's Hi, a
bimonthly newsletter for Amelia Island Runners. His
work has earned him the title of national Outstanding
Club Writer of the Year from Road Runners Club of
America.


tributor to Runner's Hi, the bi-
monthly newsletter of the
Amelia Island Runners running
club. And the thrills haven't
stopped.
A few weeks ago, he learned
he'd won the national Outstand-.
ing Club Writer of the Year


award froni the Road Runners
Club of America. The RRCA
comprises hundreds of running
clubs around the.country, and
nominees for the honor came
from clubs of all sizes. Writers
for Runner's World magazine
were among the judges.


"It took me by complete sur-
prise," Pennington says. "I was
making dinner with my wife
Emilie on a Sunday night and
one of the RRCA's selection
committee members called to
congratulate me. She said they
had narrowed the list to 20,
then to five and I was selected
as the top one from the final,
five.
"It sent shivers down my
spine and left me speechless
for a few seconds."
Pennington has won jour-
nalistic awards before an
Associated Press award in 1982
and Georgia sportswriter award
in 1983, during his time at the
News-Press. And last year he
was named Outstanding Club
Writer for the RRCA's South-
ern Region. But this latest
honor is special.
"I think it's a club award as
well as an individual one," he
says. "Amelia Island Runners
is a great group of people with
interesting and impressive sto-
ries I just happen to be their
mouthpiece."
Bill and Emilie Pennington
moved to Fernandina Beach in
March of 2004 just in time
for him to become a charter


member of Amelia Island
Runners, which formed a
month later. He's been a con-
ference sales manager for the
Amelia Island Plantation since
August of that year.
"My parents moved to
Amelia when I was in college in
1979, so I've been coming to
the island for 30 years,"
Pennington says. While he lost
his father in 1978, his mother
still lives here and, at 83, plays
tennis 2-3 days a week.
Pennington used .to be an
avid tennis and basketball play-
.er, but started running for exer-
cise in his early 40s.
"All my friends started get-
ting married and having chil-
dren, so our pick-up basketball
games started getting less and
less frequent. I didn't want to
get out of shape, so I started
running; well, actually jogging
a mile or two a few times a
week;" he says.
"When I was 42, 1 decided lo
enter one of the Jacksonville
Track Club events in downtown
Jacksonville. I wasn't very fast,
but to my surprise, I finished in

thinking, hey, I can do better.
That started me entering more
events, training harder, read-
ing articles about running, talk-
ing to fellow runners and even-
tually winning a small
third-place age group trophy in
an area race."
Now Pehnington's training
is more regimented with tempo
runs, intervals and long runs.
Sports and creativity run in
the family. His wife owns her
own advertising design com-
pany, Emilie Pennington
Designs, and is also a photog-
rapher. You've probably seen
her work she created the
Amelia Island Runners logo and
designs the club's race fliers.
"Much credit for this award
should go to Emilie, who toler-
ates me reading my half-writ-
ten columns to her time and
again and .asking for sugges-
tions," Pennington says. "She is
a tremendous sounding board'
and has a knack for turning
dead-end stories in the right
direction. She has also helped
put together some of the fun-
nier lines."
And while Pennington real-
ly likes to write, he really loves
to run. He has written of his
"addiction" to the Gate River'
Run, for instance..
"It's the marquee' event for
area.runners, always a special
day," he says. "I keep two pic-
tures in my office commemo-
rating breaking 70 minutes for
the Gate in 2007 (68:.51) and,
2005 (68:56),." He's been in the
top:lO percent of finishers in
his last three races (2005, '06
and '07, missing last year with
Achilles tendonitis- an injury
that also became column mate-
rial).
His other favorites include
AIR-sponsored races and the
July 4th and Rock Shrimp
5K/10Ks in St. Marys.' "Those
are particularly fun because so
- many AIR members compete."

'On Friday, the Pirates.


And where does he get his
column ideas?
"I listen, even eavesdrop on
people before, during and after
races," he says. "I find that most
of us runners have similar feel-
ings, There is plenty of suffer-
ing before pleasure in running.
It doesn't matter if you're a 12-
minute miler or six-minute -
the emotional strain and emo-
tional roller-coasters during a
run are the same. But, we all
celebrate our successes.
"I try to take circumstances
that face every runner and put
a humorous or emotional twist
on them. I want my columns to
be reader-friendly for the com-
petitive types and the recre-
ational runners, too."
Pennington will receive his
award at the RRCA's national
convention March 28 in San
Francisco. He'll have an oppor-
tunity to address the group -
and talk about Nassau County's

"Being a member of Amelia
Island Runners has enriched
my life," he says. "It always

I see people running around

"I think we're a lot like mail-
men. Whether rain, sleet, snow,
cold, hot or pretty much any-
thing else, we're running, and
we're training," he muses. "I
remember a quote from Bill

Play the short shots with an open clubface


E everybody can pitch and chip when
there is plenty of room to work with
between your ball and the pin. The
advantage for someone who plays
with an open clubface.is they can play the del-
icate shots just as easily as the straight for-
ward ones.
On any short shot, it's the angle of attack
that determines the quality of the strike. Mis-
hits occur when the golfer tries to help the
ball into the air and the clubhead reaches the
bottom of its swing arc before it reaches the

What was the first country outside Great Britain to
take up the game of golf?
a) France c) India
b) USA d) South Africa
Answer: c) India. The Royal Calcutta Golf Club, estab-

India had a dozen golf clubs.

One of the first things that we
need to learn, when we get
ready to tee off is to have the
proper ball position. More than
S half the time, the ball is not
lined up with our body properly,
4S resulting in an errant drive. For
every inch that the ball is teed up too far
back in your stance, it puts the flight of the
,ball some 15-20 yards off of your intended
line: It is almost a universal rule that the ball
should be close to even with the tip of your
front shoulder. This will allow the clubface to
,make a full rotation through the ball, maxi-
mizing' your distance, accuracy and consis-
tency. Place the ball in line with your front
heel and make sure that the heels of your
feet are shoulder width apart.


The Mayakoba Golf Classic was held last week for the PGA Tour players'that did
not qualify for the Accenture Match Play Championship. Mark Wilson posted a
two-under-par 68 in the final round to win the event by two strokes. Wilson, who \N--- .
entered the round tied with a one-shot lead, finished with a total of 13-under 267 to
record his second PGA Tour title. Wilson's only other PGA title came at the Honda
Classic in 2007. JJ Henry finished two strokes off the pace in second with a total of 11-
under-par 269. Henry shot a final round two-under-par 68. Kevin Streelman climbed up to third with a
64 in the final round and joined Heath Slocum at 10-under 270 for the tournament. Bo Van Pelt had a
rough day and ended up tied for 28th with a total of 2-under-par for the tournament. Van Pelt entered

Sheepshead



offer big bites l
" ** ,^/ j i ^ ^^ i ^ jr "


Without a doubt,
now is the time
of year to test
your
sheepshead fishing skills.
During Saturday's ninth annu-
al El Cheapo sheepshead fish-
ing tournament, held from
Mayport, a new record was
set. Mike Short fished with
Shawn Parnell and weighed
in a new tournament record
sheepshead that tipped the
scales at 12.9 pounds.
Jacob Wheeler topped all
junior anglers with a 9.2-
pound sheepshead. It took at
least a nine-pound-
sheepshead to make the top
10 in the open division and a
six-pound sheepshead to
make the top 10 in the junior
division. The event had a full
field of 300 fishermen and
was followed by a delicious
fish fry.
Short's key to winning the'
event was practice fishing for
two weeks prior to the tourna-
ment. The skilled, sheepshead
fishermen found one rock
along the Jacksonville jetty
rocks holding big fish and .
returned to the lucky rock.
during the tournament.
Fishing with pieces of blue
crab,.Short landed his win-
ning sheepshead and took
home a 14-foot Carolina Skiff.
"I believe the best
sheepshead fishing can be
found right off the St. Marys
south jetty rocks," said
Edward Eng of.Jacksonville.
"I have heard of big catches
* coming from those barna6le-,


clad rocks,
particularly
during the
winter
months."
SWhile just
a handful of
Georgia and
Fernandina
B Beach fisher-
OUTDOORS men target
...~- St. Marys
oTerry acoss sheepshead,
quite a few
Jacksonville fishermen trailer
their boats to Fernandina
Beach and fish the jetty rocks
for sheepshead. While the
majority of sheepshead fisher-
men either fish with barna-
cles scraped from the jetty
rocks or fiddler crabs cap-
tured from nearby marshes, it
appears small pieces of blue
.crab may just be the key to
catching giant sheepshead,
also called striped jetty snap-
per.
However, you can also tar-
get excellent eating
sheepshead during a flood
tide as well with great suc-'
cess. Sheepshead are fre-
quently mistaken for redfish
while they probe the flooded
oysterbars for forage foods
'during a flood tide and, in
many cases, will nose down to
the bottom of the oysterbar
with their tails wagging like
flags out of the water. From a
distance, tailing sheepshead
will often produce a pounding
heart and sweaty brow from
nearby redfishermen.
Flood tide sheepshead can.

line-siders could weigh over the 10-pound mark. Tony Peeples, right

be difficult to catth unless
you brought along a few fid-
dler crabs, pieces of blue crab
or barnacles. They will rarely
take a gold spoon, topwater
plug or redfish spinner.
Simply ease up to the tail-
ing sheepshead and slowly
piesent.your bait right in ,
front of the foraging
sheepshead. Ten-pound spin-
ning tackle is quite adequate
when paired with a five-foot
section of 15-pound fluorocar-
bon shock leader. Tie 'a No. 4
bait hook to the business end
of the shock leader using a
Palomar Knot. Attach a small


split shot'just ahead of the
'hook to. add weight that helps
in accurate casting and allow-
ing the bait to sink to the bot-
tom.
Not only is sheepshead
fishing fun, but they are
excellent eating as well. Some
seafood lovers claim -
sheepshead taste better than
many deep-water species,
including grouper and red
snapper. The meat is bright"
white and very mild tasting.
Some of the better
sheepshead holes in\
Fernandina Beach waters
include the low areas of the


St. Marys jetty rocks, the
deep holes in Tiger Basin, the
Thomas Shave Bridge, the
rock piles at the foot of Egans
Creek and dock pilings. Tides
are also critical with the last
two hours of the falling and
the first two hours of the
incoming tides providing
some of the best sheepshead -
fishing action..
Sheepshead must measure
at least 12 inches in length,
with a bag limit of 15 fish per
day per angler in Florida
waters. Georgia's sheepshead
regulations allow fishermen
to keep 15 per day that must


measure at least 10 inches in
overall length. '
The annual Nassau
Sport Fishing Association
Black Drum Tournament gets
under way with a captain's
meeting Friday. The meeting
will be held at Ten Acres and
begins at 7 p.m. Entry fee is
$40 per angler and the tourna-
ment runs through April 19.

selves and with every kind of
neighbor."

works of mercy, the Sisters'
main work since arriving in the
United States has been edu-
cation. In that time, the Sisters
of St. Joseph of St. Augustine
have opened more than 100
missions in Florida. Beginning
with the first class of African-
