News-Leader


Street peddler Felix Jones played
the blues Tuesday night at City Hall.
But he also played "My Country, Tis
of Thee" on his harmonica, and in
the end the city "let freedom ring."
Dozens and dozens of Felix's sup-
porters inside and outside the
packed city commission chamber -
heard what they wanted to hear:
Since Felix is collecting donations,
which he then gives to charitable
causes, he is not violating a city ordi-
nance against selling on the streets,
City Attorney Tammi Bach said.
"There is no violation of the ordi-
nance . as long as he continues
what he's doing. So, carry on Felix,"
she said
The chamber erupted in applause.
A Facebook campaign online had
attracted comments from around the
nation, and many of those people
gathered at Central Park for a pro-
cession to City Hall. Chanting "Felix!
Felix! Felix!," they marched down
Centre Street and up South Third to
City Hall, where loud cheers erupted
and more chants of "Felix! Felix!
Felix!"
There they heard Felix's attor-
neys, Mike Nlullin and Dan
McCranie, suggest the city resolve
the matter short of a lawsuit. "I don't
think anything has galvanized this
community more than Felix,"
McCranie said of the city's plans to
restrict Felix's peddling.
He also questioned whether food
safety, one of the city's purported con-
cerns, was an issue. "Nobol.gp9.9J y,

Felix's ped-
dling his
mother r,' s ard
baked goods), -'
and you can't
say that about
all the restau-
rants in this
town," he said.
"You know,
when I bake
cookies I pray
over them and
I ask the Lord
to bring us
together," said
Felix's moth-
er, Geneva
McGowen. e ,
"Felix was
born with, a
problem. I
don't look at it Felix
like a problem.
He's God-
sent," she told commissioners. ".
God brought us Felix down here to let
you know open your hearts and
start giving."
SFelix, who is afflicted with a slight
case of cerebral palsy, brought down
the house with his harmonica, appro-
priately opening with "My Country,
'Tis of Thee," its lyrics extolling a
"sweet land of liberty" and urging
"let freedom ringg"
The crowd left thrilled.
"Felix is really nice to us and we


think it's just stupid that they're going
to take.that away," said Keith Wolfla,
12, a student at St Michael's Academy
who started a texting cahnpaign in
support of Felix and urging every-
body to march from Central Park.
Ken Drury picked up on that
momentum by helping create the
Facebook site with a former
Fernandina Beach friend now living
in Hawaii. "I read the paper (last)
Wednesday and said, 'This is bull-
crp;,-J'v e know Felix forever," said
Drurvy. whoi has lived in Fernandina
his entire life. "We understand it's a
law ... but I think someone in City
Hall is going after Felix."
'They come here because they
like the way we're living, and then
they move here and want to change
it. If they want it that way they should
stay up there where they came from.
I think they've got a fight on their
hands," said Sue French, who has
lived in Fernandina Beach "pretty
much" all her life, referring to rumors
that a would-be hot dog vendor "from
up North" complained about Felix.
Judy Richo, who has known Felix
and his mother all her life, was more
succinct in her comments for City
Manager. Michael Czymbor, who has
said he is just trying to follow the law.
"Go back to Michigan that's what I
would tell him. I think he could do a
lot back in Michigan if he wants to
mess with people," said Richo.
Stopping Felix would be akin to
stopping beach access, they all said -
you just do not mess with hometown
traditions.
The Facebook site opened with
this assertion "The City of Fernan-
dina Beach, Florida is trying to pull
the plug on a sweet, innocent and
kind peanut peddler! The city is going
tqo far on this one!! They are being
bullies and we're not gonna take it!!"

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Would-be criminals in Fernandina
Beach, and everyone else in town as
well, take note: The police may have
their electronic eye on you.
Early last year, the Fernandina.
Beach Police Department was award-
ed $11,000 worth of surveillance
equipment It was that, and more cam-
eras purchased with grant money and
the law enforcement trust fund, that
kicked off a project Chief Jim Hurley
hopes to expand this year.
"This year, the grant money is in
the neighborhood of $22,000, so this
grant is ... going to help us complete
what we're trying to accomplish, and
that is to get a network of cameras
that we can move around and that will
be easily transportable," Hurley said.
"We can carry them to different loca-
tions, have different kinds of cameras
and different systems."
While the cameras and support-
ing equipment are expensive run-
ning approximately $7,500 apiece -
Hurley emphasizes they are pur-
chased only with grant money or con-
fiscated drug funds, they are not a
-. budgeted item paid for by taxpayers.
And it's a good investment, he said.
In the past year, the cameras they
have now have "saved us countless
numbers of man hours and taxpayer
dollars."
Having some cases backed up with
video not only makes prosecution eas-
ier, but it also frees up detectives to
work on other cases.
"Instead of working three or four or
five cases, we only have to work a cou-
ple," Hurley said.
In addition to using the cameras as
surveillance in areas where crimes
are frequently reported, such as beach
accesses and neighborhoods where
car burglaries have been a problem,
they are also used to monitor events,
like the annual Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival.
And they really come in handy for
narcotics operations, Hurley said.
"They're extremely helpful in tight-
ening up difficult undercover opera-
tions such as narcotics," he said. "We
used to do hand-to-hand buys with
dealers and then we would come back
and type up an arrest warrant ... but
times have changed, (prosecutors)
want video, they want audio."
Hurley said now that the technol-
ogy is available, ifs preferred and it's
obviously an easier sell to a jury to
see a suspect selling cocaine on video
than it is to ask that they take the
word of a undercover police officer

City candidates campaign with a week to go


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


With just a week to go before elec-
tions, five city commission candidates
had another chance to answer ques-
tions publicly about their views and
platforms at a candidates' forum
Monday.
Sponsored by Concerned Friends
of Fernandina, the forum was moder-
ated by members Dave Lott and Julie
Ferreira, who asked each candidate
five pre-selected questions and five
questions from the audience. The sub-
ject of Felix Jones the street peddler
was not among them.
The candidates are campaigning
for two seats on the city commission,


Malcolm


Bunch


with elections scheduled Tuesday.
Bruce Malcolm and Jeffrey Bunch are
competing for Malcolm's seat, and Jim
B. Higginbotham, Larry Myers and
Tim Poynter are competing for Ron
Sapp's seat. Sapp is not running for


reelection.
Poynter, a business owner in the
downtown district, said he believed in
a smaller government that should "con-
centrate on making the city more liv-
able ... and more user-friendly for busi-
nesses and citizens."
"We need to make the island more
business-friendly," said Poynter. "When
(business owners) become success-
ful, they hire people," which in turn
brings in expanded services and more
tax revenues.
Poynter also agreed with other can-
didates that the city marina should be
privatized, and that increasing density
within the city was a positive thing. As
with the other candidates, Poynter said
he was not in favor of increasing the

downtown.
Poynter said the city "could get a lot
more aggressive" about using green
technology, and added that it was nice
to see the city using electric carts.


"The government
should help people
help themselves,"
said Poynter. "(If
elected) I'll bring
clarity to the role of
government and
how it should be
helping people."
Former city fire
Higginbotham marshal Bunch,
when asked about
a new Fernandina
Beach branch library, said he was glad
the county had budgeted for the proj-
ect, but that the county was also unwill-
ing to spend any of the $80 million it

cut spending ... leave Felix alone.
... The City should be more con-
cerned with important issues,"
wrote Stacey Frattaroli Schieber
of Gulfport/Biloxi, Miss., in a typ-
ical example on the Facebook
site.
John Johnston of Abilene,
Texas, posted: "Where has small
town America gone? Everything
that Felix represents is the very
ideals that many Americans fight
for . freedom. Ya'll are doing
what's right for Felix and what's
right for Fernandina."
The posts came from
Fernandina, Yulee, Jacksonville
and elsewhere in Florida, from
Atlanta and Savannah, Ga., Long
Island, N.Y., Seattle, Lynchburg,
Va., Hawaii, Syracuse, N.Y., and
more. They were nearly all criti-
cal of a 1955 city law that pro-
hibits street peddling in
Fernandina and the city's intent to
enforce it.

had set aside in impact fees.
Bunch also said the former hos-
pital site at North 14th Street
would be a nice spot for the
library and that Atlantic
Elementary School, once
closed, would be a good place
for the Council on Aging.
Bunch added that 'he
would like to see 24 apart-
ments, perhaps for. senior citi-
zens, constructed in the fel-
lowship hall of the former First
Baptist Church building down-
town.
Bunch also said that "a lot of
people (who work for the city)
have take-home vehicles that
don't need them," and added
that he would cut expenses by,
getting rid of those unneces-
sary vehicles. He also said
there were a lot of jobs posted
on the city job board that
shouldn't be there..
Like other candidates,
Bunch was in favor of changing
the date of city elections from:
April to November to save
money and bring out rlore vot-
ers. "We had a wonderful
turnout in presidential elec-
tions," said Bunch. "It will
encourage more people to vote
(in the local election)."
"I don't think I'll do a better
job," said Bunch, "I know I'll
do a better job ... I see things
happening that don't need to
be happening." ,
Mayor Bruce Malcolm, vho
isrunning against Bunch, to.
keep his;seat,on the commis-.

SIAN PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
There were so many marchers from Central Park to City Hall to support Felix Jones on Tuesday that many of them,
had to wait outside while the City Commission considered his fate.


Election Tuesday
Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center and Martin Luther King Jr./Elm
Street Center.
There are two city commission races and four proposed
charter amendment questions on the ballot.
All registered voters who live within the city of Fernandina
Beach may cast ballots.


year elections."
"If you turn 100 votes, you
can swing any issue you want,"
said Malcolm in reference to
low voter turnout, which was
less than 1,000 at the last city
election.
Malcolm said the downtown
area was an important issue
and agreed with other candi-
dates that residential density
should be increased there. But
Malcolm was the sole candi-
date in favor of ,a cruise ship
terminal on the island.
"If Smurfit-Stone went out
of business, we (would) have
19 acres of hard parking down
there," Malcolm said. "It would
be a replacement for jobs lost
from the mills."
"I love the town," said.
Malcolm. "(My wife and I)
moved here because we loved
it; it wasn't an accident ofbirth."
Higginbotham, a former
county commissioner and city
public works director, said he
was not in favor of a cruise ship
terminal.
"Both (Smurfit-Stone) as
well as the Port (of Fernandina)
have limits and rights that you:,
can't even., touch,". ..said,.
Higginbotham: 'I do riot see,


the possibility any time of
cruise ships coming up to
park." However Higginbotham,
like other candidates, said he
did not have a problem with
smaller ships stopping in
Fernandina Beach as a port,of
call.
'I think we can create moor-
ings across the Intracoastal
(Waterway) for smaller ships,"
he said.
Higginbotham also said that
he would like to see the city of
Fernandina Beach purchase
the electric utility company. "We
can cut out the middle man,"
he said: "Everyone has. con-
cerns and complaints about the
prices."
Higginbotham' said he
believed there *vere parts of
the city marina the city could
maintain, but that "there are
things that really and truly
could be managed by privati-
zation ... it could be a goldmine
revenue for Fernandina
Beach."
Former city manager
Myers said the two biggest
challenges were reducing city
government expenses and cut-
ting taxes,, and that the .city
needs more cost-effective man-


agement. He also said that,
while downtown density can
certainly be increased, it is
important to preserve the
island's natural beauty. "We
should ask people what kind of
density they want," said Myers.
"It probably should go to ref-
erendum."
. Myers said a cruise terminal
was also "definitely something
the citizens should decide."
"In the end, it comes down
to what the citizens of
Fernandina Beach want," said
Myers.
As to private marina man-
agement, Myers said as city
manager he "inherited a terri-
blecontract" where a clause
was inserted for subletting the
marina. "Basically (the city) got
short-changed," he said, and
added that if a contract is writ-

Myers also said he was not
in favor of the expansion of the
downtown CRA because "basi-
cally, you're robbing Peter to
pay Paul ... revenues go into
the CRA only." But, he added,
he was interested to see how
the.current CRA would play out

They're creating family heirlooms

"We'are three friends trying
to provide others in our area
the opportunity to become
involved in a hobby that will live
long after we are gone. It will be
an heirloom for children and
grandchildren to cherish forev-
er," said Lynn Todd.
Todd.and friends Valerie and
Barbara Byrd first became inter-
ested in scrapbooking when
they attended a home sales
party.
The trio got hooked on the
hobby but soon found that local
pickings were slim to feed their
new addiction..
"We were spending money
with various companies and
home sales personnel, most of
which was out of town."
Three and a half years ago,
the. friends decided to, open a

residents the opportunity to
shop here for their scrapbook-
ing needs, rather than having
to drive to Jacksonville.

City steps in


a fire-ant nest


F ernandina Beach
apparently has so
few problems that
top officials can now
focus on banishing a colorful
and harmless member of our
community.
The city's intended boy-
cott of Felix Jones, a min-
strel, huckster and delightful
fixture in downtown for
decades, has caused an
uproar the size of a Smurfit.
Stone smokestack.
Maybe city officials should
choose their battles more
carefully.
Brandishing an outdated
and obscure code, officials
are saying Felix (as he is
fondly known) is suddenly,
breaking a series of rules -
on free advertising, ped-,
dling, and possibly playing
music without a permit?
Please. Don't we have
bigger things to do and
decisions to make? The
city is hardly.operating
harmoniously. There are
staggering issues before
us.
The city's business cli-
mate has been souring due
to a weakening U.S. econb-
my, the marina restoration is
*unfinished, a massive water-
front initiative has tiptoed '
along and an anti-commerce
sentiment pervades the air
like a stench.
Meanwhile, the city is
engaged in a slate of lawsuits
that could make Madoff
cringe, revenues are dwin-
dling as local businesses
close and restructure and as
property valuations decline
and competent commission-
ers step down in a huff of
helplessness.
So that leaves us with
what a coordinated effort
against Felix? The scheme
apparently, sprang from a
complaint about either
Felix's spontaneous
harmonica performances
or the roasted peanuts he
sells or the baked goods his
mother makes. (That is ;
lyfretlLyhfEi theritah
of the horse, the city manag-
er.) ,
It is debatable whether
some forlorn soul had the
time or audacity to complain
about a person who has
graced our downtown streets
for decades. City officials
will only say that they


received a
few com-
plaints.
.a mFollow-

dures for

shattering
incidents,
STEVE'S the city
SE 'S manager
MARWET proceeded
PLACE to investi-
gate with
the tenacity
Steve Nicklas and guile of
an
Inspector Clouseau, digging
up and dusting off a law from
the 1950s.
An unexpected problem
emerged, however, as he
brought forward his recom-
mendation to shut down
Felix's fabulous act. It's
called the power of the
public.
The issue and its legali-
ties were to be heard by the
city commission at its meet-
ing last night. The decision
will have reverberations.
City officials have simply
stepped on a fire-ant nest,
and must now figure out how
to graciously excuse them-
selves.
Not only is Felix probably
the hardest-working person
in downtown, he is popular
with the locals and tourists
alike, arid iconic for a deter-
mination to overcome per-
sonal obstacles.
One night, he casually
stopped at Cafe Karibo and
serenaded spellbound
teenagers having a birthday
party. And you'll commonly
hear his "woo-hoo" chant
rise from the riffs of his
trusty harmonica.
Felix is as much a part of
our downtown as the friendly
gestures and the warmth
and the historic charm.
Don't let him go the way of
the Keystone Hotel, which
was taken from us in a capri-
cious and regrettable
moment. FRLAl belongs:here.

WEDNESDAY, April 8.2009 BUSINESS News-Leader 5A




Group works to promote'sustainability


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader

Sustainability. It's a word
we've been hearing more and
more over the past few years.
But what does it really mean to
our own community?
Local architect Randy Rice,
Jane Scanlan and others are
taking the idea of sustainability
and breaking it down for local
residents through an organiza-
tion called the Amelia Island
Institute. Formed over the past
year, the group will be holding
a workshop for the public on
April 18 to address some real
sustainability issues.
Rice says the best definition
lie's seen of sustainability is
"the ability of a system to main-
tain itself in relation to its envi-
ronment over time."
Sustainability has many
components, including, green
building practices, recycling,
energy and water conservation,
and "smart growth" practices,
to name a few. The concept can
also cross into more compli-
cated areas such as concur-
rency and land rights.
This year's workshop, said
Rice, will narrow the idea of
sustainability down to five
areas, including funding,
renewable energy,.water quali-
ty, waste/recycling and land
use.


Democrats to meet
The Nassau County
Democratic Party meets at 7
p.m. on the second Thursday
of each month at the County
Building on Pages Dairy
Road in Yulee. The meeting is
open to all registered
Democrats.

Republicans to meet
The Republican Party of
Nassau County executive
committee will hold its
monthly meeting at 7 p.m.
April 16.
Guest Speaker will be
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves,
who will be speaking about
his volunteer program.
The meeting will be held
at the County Building on
Pages 'Dairv aIinm 'ulee'.
All republican's are invited.

Teaparty
A Tea Party rally is
planned in front of City Hall,
204 Ash St, on April 15, the
day federal tax returns are to
be mailed. The Tea Party is
part of a national movement
to protest the planned govern-
ment spending of trillions of
dollars. Rallies are scheduled
in over a thousand cities
across the nation, More infor-
mation can be found at
TEAPartyDay.com.


'OfftheGrid'
An "Off the Grid" conference sponsored by the Amelia
Island Institute will be held Saturday, April 18 from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. at City Hall on Ash Street. Suggested donation is $25
or $20 if car-pooling, walking or biking. Under age 21 is free.
Space is limited. Call Rice at 491-0072 or e-mail at
riceearch @ bellsouth.net.


Energy conservation is
especially important this year,
said Rice, because there is con-
siderable more federal and
state money available for
grants. One part of the work-
shop, he said, will focus on
which websites are best to get
funding for home and business
energy-conservation projects.
Another approach to acquire
funds, he said, would be to gen-
erate local matching funds or
the use of government permit
fees to create incentives for sus-
tainable projects.
One probleni with sustain-
able technology has been its
cost compared to conventional
technology. Government sub-
sidies are making the technol-
ogy more available, said Rice,
and there have been many
advancements that are making
it cheaper and more available.
Rice noted that Japan has been
using solar panels for quite a
while, and Germany's 'total,
renewable energy is 18 percent.
"A lot of it is government


commitment," said Rice. He
noted that, while wind turbines
were voted down in
Massachusetts, they have been
set up all over the Midwest as
well as some isolated parts of
California.
"The local city government
is trying to move in that direc-
tion with solar panels on the
waterfrontt) sun shelters," he
added. "They're starting to
make a paradigm shift."
One of the enemies of sus-
tainable living has been the
unchecked growth of subitrbia,
with its emphasis on energy-
consuming "McMansions" and
zoning that requires driving
long distances. Nassau County,
while it is lucky enough to have
the Fernandina downtown,
needs an alternative to single-
family development, says Rice.
"If the whole county is set
up with one (development)
structure," says Rice, "it's tak-
ing away our freedom. ... Let's
have a sustainable alternative.
It doesn't have to be a special

development project." Houses
over 3,000 square feet, Rice
said, should be at least partial-
ly "off the energy grid" because
large homes consume more
energy than is necessary.
The downtown area is also
good, says Rice, because so
many necessities are close by.
But, he adds, if the speed limit
were reduced to 35, electric
carts could be used all over the
island. Transportation costs for
individuals tend to be very
high, he said, because typical-
ly people don't carpool, and
many commute to Jacksonville.
The North Florida
Transportation Planning
Organization, says Rice, has
introduced the concept of a rail
line from Jacksonville to
Fernandina Beach in its 2030
master plan. This plan, he said,
could inspire a "density trans-
fer" where areas around the
station could become more
urbanized.
There is also a new kind of
solar power cell, said Rice, that
could be used by the city to
generate power for its citizenry.
The new technology focuses
the sun's intensity into salt
water, which is able to store
heat without losing much of the
original solar energy. The heat


can then be used to create
steam for turbines. This could
be used instead of individual
solar panels on houses.
"There are a lot of energy
possibilities out there to
explore," he said. "This (work-
shop) is one of those drop-in-
the-bucket type things."
Rice also noted that only 3-
10 percent of the city's trash
gets recycled, but the city
receives $30 for every truck-
load of recycled trash. Rice said
he knew of very few business-
es that recycle because it costs
them money to do so, and
added that the city's trash col-.
lection company, Stateline
Disposal, should pay business-
es to recycle. It could become
a system that creates clean-


burning fuel, plus jobs at the
recycling center, he said.
But, said Rice, "We have to
have the public will to do it."
Another aspect of sustain-
ability is smart growth, or hav-
ing a local source-for food sta-
ples. This could mean anything
from community gardens, to
using local farms for products,
to growing your own produce at
home.
Rice said the Amelia Island
Institute is working to get
non-profit status, or it may
become a branch of the U..S.
Green Building Council, anoth-
er non-profit group that seeks
to make green buildings avail-
able to everyone within a gen-
eration.

I HOUR FACIAL,


You've Got to Love This Man
Dr..Jim Gildenston served our community as a podiatrist for over 30
years, and is known by many here on Amelia Island. So what does
a retired podiatrist.do with his spare time in retirement? Well, Dr.
Jim as he is. affectionately called, volunteered with Communities In
Schools knowing he could help students with their homework. But
it became clear from the moment he first opened a 6th grade math
book that they did math a whole lot different than it was done in.his
school days, and he felt he was just about as far behind as the kids
he wanted to help.
"This is not an unusual situation for our volunteers" explained Amy
S ... Pipkin, CIS Site Leader at Fernandina Beach Middle School. "We
.. f desperately need adult volunteers and they are often frightened by
.'.the new math methods only to leave in search of other volunteer
S. opportunities." But.not Dr. Gildenston he asked to borrow a 6th
grade math book over the Christmas Holidays and left confident in
.. his belief he could figure it out. And figure it out he did! Jim is now
an even more-valuable asset to FBMS students, and can help them to
help themselves. "To see how kids respond and become less frustrated is all the reward I need," stated Dr.
Jim.

Dr. Gildenston is a great example of a lifelong learner staying one step ahead of those he helps. He is also
symbolic of what so many retirees are doing for the children of our community as tutors, mentors, coaches,
-and helpers. So often a child just needs someone to sit next to them while they do their homework so they're
not alone; or listen to their feelings about their day at school; or play a game of checkers; or help them read a
book. If you'd like to help in any way, contact Susan Milana, Executive Director, Communities In Schools of
Nassau County, 904-321-2000.

Misinformation
Misinformation by people
who write to the paper is dan-
gerous. A recent letter on coun-
ty Animal Control said "one of
the largest issues now is fund-
ing." Animal Care and Control
has a budget that is close to a
million dollars per year since
the sheriff took over, which is an
increase of some $400,000.
Collect license fees for pets and
even more money will be avail-
able, which could fund a state-of-
the-art shelter. Successful man-
agement requires a plan, and
more often than not a plan "B".
A true measure of the
progress the management of
Animal Care and Control is
making can 'be found in the
records of admissions, adop-
tions and deaths in the year
since the sheriff has been
responsible for the operation.
Those public records should be
made available for public inspec-
tion and printed in the News-
Leader.
Failure to be accountable
begs the question of: What's
going on at Animal Care and
Control?
Rhett Holden-Dodge
Editor's note: Rhett Holden-
Dodge is a former director of


Nassau County Animal Care and
Control.
Legalize drugs?
I read this letter ("Legalize
drugs?" April 1) with shock and
awe. Why? Because the points
made were far from factual and
based mostly on a Sean Hannity-
like argument of "I don't care,
you're wrong" attitude. Let's
investigate.
The "War on Drugs" is now
over 40 years old. There are
major fights among smugglers
for the right to fill the demand
for drugs in this country. Many
South American countries cul-
tivate cocaine for sale here. The
Afghans are growing poppies
to satisfy the demand for opium
and heroin in this country. The
jails are full of people in jail for
possession of drugs. They are
full of persons incarcerated for
crimes to fund their habits. The
courts are bogged down with
cases, the police can't concen-
trate on violent crime because
they are chasing potheads.
The writer thinks that
Prohibition failed because the
laws were too lax. I remember
when a marijuana seed in Texas
would get you 30 years! This
didn't stop the pot smoking.
Now at that time I cut my hair


and stopped doing pot when I
worked out there but I don't like
jail and switched to Coors beer!
The story spends a lot of
time advocating banning drink-
ing and smoking cigarettes. The
way I see it, those two items
cause far more death and
destruction than illegal drugs.
I would like to see marijuana
legalized and taxed at some-
thing like $20 a pack. This
would do several things. First, it
would empty out thousands of
people ro the jails and courts.
Most drug arrests are for pot.
The police could chase violent
criminals. 'Second, pot smoking,
while not good for your health,
is far less damaging (on aver-
age) than liquor and almost all
smokers smoke far less pot than
tobacco smokers smoke tobac-
co. I mean, when did you hear
of a pothead causing all the acci-
dents a drunk does or when did
you hear of a pothead getting
stoned and shooting up his
buddy or wife or beating his
kids? Now there are unstable
people that do drugs and do bad
things but, in general, stoned
people are calm and non-violent

and can usually drive and not be
near as dangerous as a drunk
(they don't pass out).
Last, the taxes on the drug
could pay for addicts to get treat-
ment, fill the government's
pockets for health programs
and such and the government
would have millions froorm the
drop in crime, inmates and
court cases.
, I advocate legalizing all
drugs (as does Neil Boortz) as
the Dutch did 30 years ago.
They regulate the potency, have
no problems with contaminants
and laced drugs and, in gener-
al, have had a big drop in crime
and no lasting spike in use. I
would say that usage is as high
as it is there partly because they
attract users from all over the
world.
I have seen crime go
through the roof with street vio-
lence and gang wars all as a
result of this failed "War on
Drugs." I have seen kids thrown
in jail for.a bag of pot and
scarred for life from gang rapes
in jails and being locked up
with killers and thieves all
because they smoked some pot!
Where is the justice in that? It
certainly didn't stop the drug
trade.
Americans can think for
themselves, even if they don't
have a working knowledge of
the Constitution (that is a school
problem). I think it's time to
pass on the drug war, spend the
money on making the addicts
well and quit letting politics be
the drive behind supporting this
fraud.
By the way, I don't drink,
smoke or do drugs. I do swear,
and I swear it's time to fix this.

Fernandina Beach voters may
choose two new city commissioners
Tuesday. We recommend they do,
replacing incumbents Bruce Malcolm
and Ron Sapp with new bloodto invig-
orate our city.
Sapp is not seeking reelection.
There are three challengers for his seat
- Larry Myers, Tim Poynter and Jim B.
Higginbotham. We will wait for a possi-
ble runoff election to tout our favorite,.
Myers, a former city manager.and
aide to state Rep. Aaron Bean, has a
long record of valued public service.
Poynter is a successful downtown busi-
nessman. Higginbotham, a former city
public works director, is probably the
best known after his long career as a
county commissioner. (We won't rec-
ommend Higginbotham, whose county
service provides ample evidence that
his is not the fresh voice our city com-
mission needs.)
The choice between Bunch and
Malcolm is more difficult. We have sup-
portedMalcolmtin two bids fora city
comiission seatandiatnthe ,votei'-rear
ago for mayor,,Buthe is npt-ourchoice
to lead us forward now.
Malcolm has been a great mayor.
His top hat, sash, eye patch and corn-
pone demeanor are not everyone's cup
of tea, but he is a fine representative of
our city at.ceremonial events.
But this is not an election for mayor.
(That "straw vote," which is a non-bind-
ing poll, is between Eric Childers and
Susan Steger.)
This is for a commission seat, and
Malcolm has frankly disappointed us as
a commissioner. He has accomplished
little in that role, despite his campaign
flyers. Malcolm takes credit for beach
renourishment and a skateboard park
that were essentially decided before his
term. He even claims credit-for a pri-
vate initiative that restored ferry servy-
ice to'St Marys, Ga.
We'llgive Malcolm credit for main-

training the city's tax rollback rate, but
give him credit as well for supporting
an ever-expanding city payroll. And
many of the paramount issues of three
years ago the city marina, the Amelia
River waterfront, downtown redevelop-
ment and more remain bogged down
in indecisiveness.
Jeffrey Bunch offers a new perspec-
tive. Bunch, a former city fire marshal,
assured us he does not come to office
planning to fire the city manager. He is
willing to work with City Manager
Michael Czymbor to move the city for-
ward. :
Bunch does want to cut the city
budget he thinks there may be $10
million of waste there. He impressed
us with his grasp of possible cuts in the
various city departments. ,
He also is open to new ways of
thinking about how city government
should be organized and, should oper-
ate. Despite having been a city employ-
ee for 25 years, Bunch will not do
things the same way just because we
always have. -,',w:s:
He recognizes the commission is
the city's board of directors and should
do a better job of setting priorities and
giving direction to city staff. He
believes that businesslike principles
should govern city financial manage-
ment. He advocates for a more trans-.
parent government to bolster public
support of city initiatives.
We had higher hopes that
Malcolm's business experience would
transform city government, but it has
not. The city has foundered for the past
three years, and the public continues to
lose confidence in it.
With two new commissioners
elected last year, Steger and Childers,
the prospect of adding two more new
faces this year could bring needed
change toCity Hall. One of those new
commissioners should be Jeffrey
Bunch.


Vote No on citycharter


Fernandina Beach voters will con-
sider four amendments to the city
charter on Tuesday. We urge a No
vote.
SWe are not opposed to the intent of
these amendments, but they do not go
far enough and are out of context with
other changes that would be necessary
for them to be effective.
A city charter commission recom-
mended 48 changes two years ago, but
only two of those have been accom-
plished. We believe the city should
revisit this issue later this year and
take a more comprehensive approach
to reform.
Voters are being asked Tuesday to
extend the terms of city commission-
ers from three to four years and to
eliminate term limits to allow them to
serve as long as possible.
We support these changes only if
the city election is moved from April to
November. In that event, elections
could be held simultaneously with fed-
eral and state elections, saving city tax-
payers the cost of running municipal
elections.
But these proposed charter
changes don't do that. One of the ques-
tions would allow the commission to'
set a different voting date if it chooses,
but a majority of current commission-
ers is opposed to a November election.
We have supported the November
election not only because it would save
money but because it would improve
turnout, which was only 12 percent last


year.
That means a relatively small num-
ber of city residents controls our gov-
ernment. Why would we want to-give
that small group the power to elect
commissioners who could stay in
office even longer than they do now?
As might be expected, current com-
missioners prefer a more controlled
election process in April than the more
democratic option of a November elec-
tion. "I support our elections being
held in April," Commissioner Eric
Childers wrote on his website. "I
would much rather have 875 educated
voters than 5,000 uneducated switch'
flippers."
Until there is a change in such
undemocratic sentiment, we say keep
the commissioners' term lengths as
they are.
The fourth question on the ballot
appears to be housekeeping to us. It
would require commissioners to go
through the city attorney or city clerk
before speaking with the employees
they supervise. Now, a commissioner
may do so by getting permission from
the city manager.
We don't have a problem with that,
and a Yes vote for question number 4
is fine by us.
But we feel strongly that a No vote
is preferable for the first three ques-
tions. The commission needs to go
back to the drawing board with its
charter commission and come back
with a comprehensive reform plan.


O K, enough is enough.
Has this community lost
its collective reasoning,
or it is just assumed and
acceptable to reason with pure and
raw emotion without at least tak-
ing a breath and thinking.
Now I usually don't and can't
write about city matters, because I
work for the city, but I just have to
weigh in on behalf of my co-work-
ers who are being berated so,
Unfairly that it's ridiculous.
It's the whole "Felix" thing.
. Everybody in their great and
righteous way has jumped on the
"Save the Felix" bandwagon, as if
he was being executed by our
local government. Even this news-
paper, which allows me to write
this column, has gone so yellow
press on this that they have writ-
ten two, above-the-fold front-page
articles about Felix' plight.
One of the articles even gar-.
nered such journalistic priority
over the frightening standoff
between a crazy man and the
police. Jeez, I'm so glad to know
"that Fernandina's Finest being
shot at was not as important as
Felix vs. the city of Fernandina
Beach. .
Anyway, I am not just firing
back at, the News-Leader, they are
just my first salvo.
So let's have a reality check
here folks. Let's not get all insane
and throw a rope with a noose
over the closest oak tree for the
city officials who, damned if they
do and damned if the don't, try to
do their jobs in this ever-increas-
ing hysterical community we
seem to be evolving towards.
First of all, before you come
marching with pitchforks and'
torches to my house on the way to
the witch-burning, let me state
that this whole thing should not
be about "Felix." Felix is a great
guy, and like so many people here
is a wonderful part of the fabric of
our community, but Felix the com-
mercial vendor is no different
than any other guy who wants to
sell hotdogs from a cart, or lemon-
ade from a homemade stand.
And don't get all mushy
because Felix is "special." Don't
be so arrogant and condescend-
ing to treat him differently
because you think he's special.
He's a man who deserves to be
treated like all of us, not like some


ust a bad joke?


Luty VS.

Editor's note: This is a sample of
the comments we've received about
Felix in the past week.
City Destroyer Czymbor is at it
again. The charm that makes up
Fernandina Beach is being eroded
away. After you are done destroy-
ing Felix's livelihood, are you going
to go after the Boy Scouts and Girl
Scouts that go house to house with-
in the city limits? If the city can per-
mit a farmers' market every
. Saturday where goods are sold on
city streets, why can't we find a way
to permit Felix to sell his goods?
Patrick Higgins
Fernandina Beach

I hope some of the "town fathers"
will listen and act upon the majority
and not some minority with a need
to control.
Susan Lane
Fernandina Beach

Does the News-Leader want to
do this community a real service?
Then publish the names of the busi-
nesses that object to Felix so we can.
boycott them; and give us the names
of the politicians that don't support
him, so we can throw the bums out!
Charlie Gerringer
Fernandina Beach


What a great April Fools Day
hoax headline ("City to curb Felix's
wheels?" on April 1)! The idea that
there are really city employees with
so much time on their hands they
are gossiping about one of our most
reliable and friendly citizens! My
husband actually believed the
absurdity. He thought maybe the
transplants got tired of complaining
about the lumber trucks and moved
on to Felix. As if we could have such
an incredibly intrusive local gov-
ernment that they would want to
regulate this hard-working entre-
preneur! Thanks for the great laugh.
Alice Krysiak
Fernandina Beach

If our city has nothing else it has
a certain Southern charm about it
that attracts many visitors. This
same charm and uniqueness affords
all who reside here a certain pleas-
ure in knowing that tourists may
come and go but we get to live here.
One of the things that makes any
small Southern town dear to those
who live within its limits is the char-
acters who reside there with them.
We have many such characters. We
have true Southern lawyers, pulpit-
pounding preachers, debutantes,
ruffians, rouges, charming belles
and quiet philanthropists. Oh yes,
we also have Felix. Felix is one of
those beloved -characters who
makes a tough day bearable by the
smile he gives you when you greet
him. He's the guy who will spark
your afternoon with a short tune on
his harmonica. Felix Jones knows no
strangers. I thought that he likely
knew no enemies until I read the
paper.
Doug Sayre
Fernandina Beach

I cannot for the life of me under-
stand how City Manager Michael
Czymbor can even entertain citing
Felix, a hard-working loveable per-
son trying to make a living doing
what he can do to-support he and his
mom. Are there not enough other
important things that Mr. Czymbor
can do instead of going .after our
Felix? Shame on you and the city
commissioners for even bringing
this up. I can't wait for the next elec-
tion. Let's see who remembers who
goes after the little people.
Gerry Guthrie
Fernandina Beach

This is crazy. Get Felix off the
streets? The world has gone
berserk! Felix is Fernandina and


once he is off the streets Fernandina
will not be the same, it will be some-
thing way too serious and preten-
tious.
Marina, Roberto, Erika,
Michael and Jordan Pestana

This is just another step in the
process of demonizing the individual
in favor of the politically correct
masses. I'm disgusted, angry and
sad. Watch out Americans, the indi-
vidual is dead. Soon we'll all be
marching in goosestep for the good
of the state. Look up, that camera
lens staring you in the eye is Big

What is my town coming to? Mr.
Felix is as much of a local icon as the
Beach Lady was. To us locals, Mr.
Felix is as much of a mascot as the
pirate is. Whoever complained about
him must not be a local, and I would
reckon you also eat imported
shrimp! How dare you attempt to
destroy our beloved icon.
Sarah Trossbach
Fernandina Beach

Let's put the blame for the move
to push Felix Jones off the streets
where it belongs. It is not the fault of
the city employees. If they have truly
received complaints, they are obli-
gated to enforce the ordinances.
The fault lies with the petty idiots,
who filed the complaints in the first
place.

If the complainants have an issue
with any product that Felix Jones
sells, don't buy it! There is another
option: Go back to where you came
from!

Felix is a landmark in Fernap-
dina. I applaud Commissioner Ron
Sapp in his desire to "find a way to
work with him so he can continue
exactly what he is doing."

I moved here because of the
friendly, safe atmosphere I experi-
enced on a visit and because of the
truly unique and historical small

FROMTHE uous" (to use
GOLDFISH the News-
Leader's own
.". opinionated ver-
Coleman biage in a sup-
Lansha posedly fact-
Langshaw based article) to
expect city offi-
cials to make some exceptions to
the rules because someone is
"special," then turn right around
and lambaste them for not being
consistent and uniform in enforce-
ment of rules and laws.
In fact, the issue grew out of
complaints from some citizens,
and if the city.did not take some
action there would have been
backlash for turning.a blind eye.
Talk about a "no-win" scenario.
And what would have happened if
by some terrible coincidence
some of Felix's or any unautho-
rized vendor's products were
tainted.
All the time we hear of salmo-
nella or E-coli related recalls.
Right now, as I write this, pista-
chios have been recalled nation-
wide. I guarantee someone would
sue the city for allowing a vendor
to violate an established law, and
someone ended up getting sick
because of the city turning a blind
eye. I'm not saying that Felix's
products are bad, but heck, even
the grocery stores don't know
what's safe anymore, it's crazy. So
there are many layers of issues,
even in the seemingly most
benign cases.
Here is the crux of the issue:
the laws that are presently on the
books prohibit activities such as
Felix's enterprise from happening
within our city limits. They were
written, without prejudice, to
mean everyone. There was no
contemplation about "special" peo-
ple, because how would they
define "special" people.without
possibly discriminating against
someone else?
OK, OK, I can hear it now, "But


Put out the torches, pull
down the rope with the
noose and act like
responsible citizens.

Felix isn't doing anything wrong,
he isn't hurting anyone, and we
like Felix!" Sure, I agree. But what
if a newcomer "special" person
comes to town and wants to sell
hotdogs at the waterfront? Do we
let him or her have at it? What if
50 "special" people decide that
they want to be like Felix?-Most
certainly we would accommodate
them too; in fact we would have to
allow them, because we as a gov-
ernment can't pick and choose
our favorites.
The thing to remember is that
laws and rules are theoretically
written for a purpose. If our elect-
ed officials see a reason in the
public interest to change those
laws, then great, they should
change them. But for the media
and the populace to get all worked
up and berate officials who have
to do the job as the law is written
is simply inexcusable and irre-
sponsible.
The message being sent is:
"Break the rules, this time." It's so
easy to smugly scathe from a posi-
tion of no accountability or
responsibility. Mob rule is appar-
eritly acceptable.
The solution is, put out the
torches, pull down the rope with
the noose and act like responsible
citizens. Go through the public
process and advocate your beliefs
to your elected officials. They can
change the rules, and the profes-
sionals charged with enforcement
and administration can then do
their jobs.as they are bound to do
by law. The hard part will be
defining "special" and how the
city can fairly implement this new
"special" doctrine.
As far as Felix is concerned, he
is not a victim, fie is an entrepre-
neur whom I am sure has over-
come adversity before, and I have
confidence he will be able to do so
now, with or without the bandwag-
on.

he would handle his business. He
quietly and unobtrusively would ride
down Centre Street, never "hawk-
ing" his wares, but waiting for peo-
ple to come up to him. He was
always happy and polite and never
harassing people. I would put Felix
in the same classification as "The
Beach Lady," the late MaVynee
Betsch, who added so much flavor
and history to our island. She is now
being honored, posthumously, for
her contributions to our communi-
ty. Felix also adds color and flavor to
our historic downtown and he is not
doing it at the taxpayers' expense.
Mary G. Myer
Fernandina Beach

There is only one solution. Mr.
Felix Jones must be declared a
"Citizen at Large" of Fernandina
Beach with all of the rights and priv-
ileges pertaining thereto. What are
the "rights and privileges" you may
well ask? Felix must be exempt from
any restrictions cited (by Mr.
Czymbor) in the city ordinance,
adopted in 1955. Felix should also be
allowed to wear whatever T-shirt
that suits his fancy!

I have always enjoyed seeing
Felix around the downtown area. I
-have a 6-year-old soni who loves to
listen to him play his harmonica. If
the city wants to take away his liveli-
hood, shame on them.

We would like to thank the News-

ing plat-

apparently
decided that
the great
horned owls
were too
ferocious to
evict, so
they moved
over to the
nearby pogy
plant proper-
ty and start-
ed building a
nest from
scratch. But


WILD
WAYS

the place they chose was a
shrimp boat anchored at the
dock, and before they could
really get a nest together the
shrimpers needed to evict
them to use the boat.
Not long afterwards dedi-
cated.polewatchers George
and June located a distant
new osprey nest near the top
of a tree northeast of the pole
along the edge of Fort Clinch
State Park. And sure enough,
with the help of binoculars,
two ospreys have recently
been seen setting up shop
there.
But no, that's not the end
of the story. Those two
ospreys at the new nest are
different ospreys entirely.
When the second owlet finally
left the nest on March 31,
"our" two ospreys were seen
perched on snags near the
pole and they moved into the
nest entirely on April 1.
Ospreys cannot mate until
they have a nest to lay their.
eggs in, and now they are
making up for lost time, near-
ly every time we watch them.
No doubt a similar scenario is
happening in the nest off in


the distance, a bit too far away
for close observation.
As for the owls, they have
outgrown the need for a nest
and were last seen at the edge
of Fort Clinch State Park, no
doubt following their parents
and learning how to hunt on
their own. One poor owlet got
confused or frightened during
the thunderstorm last
Thursday night and briefly
returned to the nest, but the
ospreys were on the alert and
chased it away, never to be
seen again.
All this close observation
has been fun for many of us,
but none of us knows the
osprey like the "Bird Man of
Pogy Point," Tommy Burbank
of Burbank Trawl Makers. He
knows "Baby Girl" and
"Alpha" the resident ospreys
personally. For the past five
years he has been whistling
his loud .distinctive "osprey
call" when he passes them in
his truck, and when they visit
the pogy plant property to
fish.
These birds know Tommy,
with or without his truck. Fo&
years now "Baby Girl" has
been coming to join him
when he is fishing. She perch-
es on a nearby post, and with
her higher angle of sight, she
sees the fish before Tommy
does, and calls out to alert
him when one is nearby.
Every now and again, Tommy
rewards her for her efforts
with a fish and the fishing
partnership between man and
bird continues.
In all, Tommy says, there
are nine ospreys in and
around the area, most likely
offspring of Baby Girl and
Alpha, with their own mates.


PAT FOSRTER-TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Ospreys "Baby Girl" and "Alpha," above, are once again
nesting on a utility pole near the back gate of Fort Clinch
State Park now that a pair of great horned owls has left.
Tommy Burbank, below, has developed a fishing partner-
ship with "Baby Girl."


Sometimes, he says, they will
even share the nest. I saw this
myself. June, George and I
were watching the pair mat-
ing in the nest, then looked
away to see if we could spot
the other pair in the nest in
the distance. A few seconds
later I glanced back at Baby
Girl and Alpha, just in time to
see a third osprey flying into
the nest with a fish!
"Breakfast in bed, on their
honeymoon," we joked.
"What could be better!"
If you, too, want to watch
the nest and share informa-
tion with the polewatchers,
just send me an e-mail and I'll
add you to the list. But you'd
better be careful.
Polewatching is addictive it
doesn't take long till Baby
Girl and Alpha will start feel-
ing like members of your fam-
ily too!

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Shannon-
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
the city of Fernandina Beach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion of a crime, not guilty.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the 'We Tip" program 1-

callers to leave anonymous tips.
Burglary arrest
A Fernandina Beach man
was arrested March 31 for bur-
glary to vehicles and grand theft
after one of his victims report-
edly chased him after seeing,
him take $58.37 in change.
Initially, 24-year-old
Christopher Allan Kitchens was
arrested by a Fernandina Beach
Police officer for one charge
each of burglary to a vehicle
and grand theft.
Following his arrest, police
turned on a global positioning
system, or'GPS, Kitchens had
and it was programmed to indi-
cate the residence of the own-
ers, who lived on Whitfield,
Drive. Aftdr contacting the res-
ident of that home, she con-
firmed her vehicle had been
burglarized and a GPS and an
iPod taken.
The iPod was also found in
Kitchens' possession, accord-
ing to a police report of the inci-
dent. Kitchens was arrested for.
an additional charge, of burgla-
ry to a vehicle and an addition-


al charge of grand theft.
Kitchens is in custody at the
Nassau County Jail on $25,002
bond.
The GPS and iPod were
returned to their owner, and
Alex B. Swaine, a Pirates Bay
Drive resident, retrieved his
change after it was found in
Kitchens' pocket.
Swaine told police he was
outside his home having a cig-
arette when he saw Kitchens
sitting in the driver's side of his
truck and taking change from
the center console. Swaine
reportedly confronted Kitchens,
and Kitchens said he thought
the truck belonged to a friend.
Kitchens fled on foot and
Swaine took off after him, ask-
ing a neighbor to call police. A
Fernandina Beach Police offi-
cer met them at Captain Hook

'Operation Storefront'



results in 10 arrests


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A local business .owner
accused of selling crack
cocaine from his clothing and
shoe store, eight other men
and one juvenile.were arrested
after a six-month undercover
investigation, "Operation
Storefront."
Rafael Washington, 36,
reportedly was selling several
. ounces of crack cocaine from
Side Hustle Fashions on a
monthly basis; Washington
operated only one section of
the store, which includes three
other vendors, in the Jasmine
Shopping Center.
"There are other individual
business owners operating
within the same location, while
Washington is the only person
within this location (who) is
charged with cocaine distri-
bution," Fernandina Beach.
Police Chief Jim Hurley said
in a statement released
Monday. "The other co-tenants
are not charged with any
crimes and are not criminally
associated with Washington."
Most of the men arrested,
including Washington, reside
in Fernandina Beach and are
suspected of moving large
amounts of crack cocaine to
users throughout Nassau
County, but primarily on
Amelia Island.
.Hurley said Operation
Storefront is expected to result
in more arrests, in coming
days. The first suspect arrest-
ed, Victor Washington, 33, was
arrested in a major drugbust
in Fernandina Beach last year,
Operation Fishnet, and was
awaiting sentencing after
pleading guilty to sale or deliv-
ery of cocaine.
He was arrested March 20
for distributing crack cocaine.

Lee, 34, and 30- .
year-old James /

arrested. Both ,
Lee and
Rogers attemp-
ted to flee
police, but
were appre- Lee
hended,-police
said. Accor-
ding to Hurley, Lee had an esti-
mated $1,800 worth of crack
cocaine when he was arrest-
ed.
Leroy Thompson Jr., 34,
was arrested March 29 for sale
of marijuana, but faces addi-
tional charges after police
found a loaded handgun in the
door of his vehicle. He was also
found with more than one
pound of marijuana and $1,100
in cash, Hurley said.
Byron Jones was arrested
on March 30, and 22-year-old
Zachary Jamison was arrest-
ed March 30 as well.
Rafael. Washington was
arrested at his store in the
Jasmine Shopping Center, also
on March 30, without incident.
"On March 31, a search
warrant related to this case
was conducted in
Jacksonville," Hurley said.
'"The target of this warrant is
known to have distributed
multi-ounce quantities of crack
cocaine into Fernandina Beach
on a weekly basis ... the sus-
pect is currently a federal fugi-
tive."
A juvenile also has been
arrested in connection to the
case for sale and delivery of
cocaine, and Dontae Pinkney
was arrested while already an
inmate at the Nassau County
Jail; he faces a charge of sale or
delivery of cocaine within
1,000 feet of a public park.
Hurley said at least five more
local arrests are expected.
Hurley said Fernandina

and throughout the months,
the pieces 'came together in
terms of who their targets
should be.
"They develop these rela-
tionships over time based on
acquaintances, families,"
Hurley said. "And thafs often
the way it goes; that you begin
the operation with an idea of an
activity of what's occurring,
but you're not sure who all the
players are ... and as you get
into it, you learn who the play-
ers are."
Hurley said the arrests, in
addition to the slew of arrests
during Operation Fishnet
last year, should send a mes-
sage to other drug dealers in
the city.
'The pool of known nar-
cotics dealers is being nar-
rowed, so if anyone is actively
engaging in illicit drug sales,
they should feel additional
pressure that they will soon
be targeted," he said. "In an
area this small, it's easy to iden-
tify people who are consis-
tently involved in criminal
behavior, especially when you
show some;sccess, so-we can,,
anticipate more intelligence,
not less, in the future."

Jail deputy arrested for


misconduct with inmates


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A Nassau County Sheriff's
jail deputy is now on the other
side of the bars after he was
arrested Friday. Fortunately for
him, he may already be on
good terms with some of the
inmates.
Police believe Cody Wayne
Flint-Davis, 21, of Hilliard
"looked the other way". as
inmates obtained illegal drugs
and allowed one inmate to
receive an illicit photograph
through the mail.
Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves said Flint-
Davis was checking the
inmates' mail that day and
allowed the photograph, of a
sexual nature, to be delivered,
which is against jail policy.
Flint-Davis was charged
with official misconduct, dis-
closure or use of confidential
criminal justice information,
failure to perform duty
required by an officer and fail-
ure of a person to discharge
his duty.
According to a written state-
ment released by Seagraves on
Friday, deputies received infor-
mation last 'month from an
informant in the jail that Flint-
Davis "was present and did not
act appropriately" when drugs
were brought into the jail, and
that he "personally distributed"
the illicit photograph to the
inmate.
Having learned of illegal
drugs possibly being in the cell
of one of the inmates, jail per-
sonnel planned a "mock fire
drill" during which they would
evacuate the inmates and
search the cells. Seagraves said
surveillance camera footage
showed Flint-Davis "huddled
up with an inmate' having a pri-
vate conversation as the pod

was being
evacuated as
if he was
warning the
inmate of an
impending
shakedown."
No drugs
were found
Flint-Davis during the
fire drill.
According
to Seagraves, Flint-Davis was
also seen on tape being "in view
of the inmates" as they placed
a bag in a mop bucket 19
ecstasy pills were later found
in the mop bucket. And he
allegedly was also seen "watch-
ing inmates making hand-to-
hand transactions and making
no attempt to take enforcement
actions."
Flint-Davis was hired with
the sheriff's Office in January
2008. When confronted and
questioned about the allega-
tions, he reportedly confessed
to warning inmates of the mock
fire drill and to giving the pho-
tograph to the inmate, and he
resigned. He was then arrested
and booked into the Nassau
County Jail, where he is cur-
rently in custody on a $55,010


bond.
Seagraves said Flint-Davis
had been disciplined in a prior
incident when inmates attempt-
ed to escape from the jail; inves-
tigators believed Flint-Davis
overheard conversations about
the attempted escape, but not
that he helped plan the escape.
"He was talked to during
that more as a witness than as
a suspect," Seagraves said. "A
lot of it was still being looked at
... then the other issues came
up about the drugs."
Seagraves said there was no
evidence at this time that
Flint-Davis actually provided
drugs to the inmates, only
that he "turned his head" when
they obtained them from oth-
ers.
Seagraves said he doesn't
know why Flint-Davis declined
to report what he saw, or why
he tipped off the inmates to the
mock fire drill whether he
had a personal relationship with
any of the inmates or had any
reason to fear the inmates.
"I don't know what his
motive was, because he would-
n't talk to us," Seagraves said.
' "Except he did confess."

Rapid Rehousing Program
could be used to help disad-
vantaged Nassau County resi-
dents make rent payments.
The grant application was
approved March 30 at a spe-
cial meeting of the Nassau
County Commission. Ron
Flick, a board member of
Barnabas Center, said the cen-
ter was approached and asked
to apply by the Emergency
Services Homeless Coalition
of Jacksonville, the organiza-
tion that would administer the
grant in this region.
"We were the only known
not-for-profit that met all the
federal guidelines for this pro-
gram." Flick said. "Essentially
it's $181,545.... It's a three-year
program. We must expend 60
percent of the program within
the first two years, and by
September of the third year
we must have completed the
program."


"Nassau County pre-quali-
fied for those funds on three
different criteria: the allocation
initially for Nassau County was
the percentage of evictions, the
total number of unemployment
-and the percentage of people
on food stamps," Barnabas
Center Executive Director
Susan Holden-Dodge said
Thursday. "It can only be used
for exactly the title Homeless
Prevention and Rapid
Rehousing, which means it
goes for rental payments to sta-
bilize families. The whole idea
is that in this economic down-
turn, we're looking to support
families and keep them stable
until such time as employment
is procured or other decisions
are made."
Holden-Dodge said
Barnabas Center is well suited
to use the grant wisely. "We
already do this kind of work, so
-our whole model of doing cri-


sis management in housing is in
place," she said. "Beyond that,
our data system is a regional
data system. One of the main
criteria of this grant is that we
have this data system. ... Our
data-reporting mechanism puts
us at the front of the line.
That's a very big part of the
grant. We call it Service Point
here. I can put in here 'Susan
Holden-Dodge got $300 of rent'
Then if I go to Jacksonville and
they put in my name ... they can
see what other services I've
used."
Holden-Dodge said the grant
has other features built in to
prevent abuse. "They asked us
to build in a part-time position of
a case manager for that fund,"
she said. "They want the people
to be tracked and make sure
the money is spent wisely.
"The application is a very
thorough and comprehensive
application," she added. "They
* want your audits and everything
to make sure you are who you
say you are. I appreciate the
hor6oughness- I think taxpayer
money is being well-spent."
If Barnabas Center wins the
grant, it would be administered
through Jacksonville's
Emergency Services Homeless
Coalition. "That's a regional
group, in which Nassau County
is represented by Dr. Tom
Washburn," .Holden-Dodge
said. "Dr. Tom is our medical
director for our free Samaritan
Medical Clinic. He's also presi-
dent of the Homeless Coalition
here in Nassau County."
Holden-Dodge said she did-
n't know when the grant funds
would arrive if Barnabas
Center's application is approved.
However, she estimated the fed-
eral government could disburse
the funds as early as May.

ags' inaction in Cutler sweepstakes smart


ulation last week that the
Jacksonville Jaguars might
be a player in the Jay
Cutler sweepstakes after the Denver
quarterback demanded to be traded.
Many contemplated a package deal
that would involve QB David
Garrard and a first- or second-round
draft pick, or both, to bring Cutler to
town. While there is no way to know
if Jacksonville really had any interest
in the Cim.i, Jaks fanii should be
gial.-fil Ilili he eventually landed in
'h:icg;j,, ,ail not on the First Coast.
'11,, -.1hiiiIl also be il.ilkiif l that
Garrard is still around. Why?
Because Garrard is a comparable
quarterback. More importantly, he's
a better person.
Many seem to perceive Cutler to


be a future Hall of
Fame quarterback
in the mold of Jhn
Elway. A lot of the
same people likely
view Garrard as a
career backup who
benefited from
Jacksonville's fall-
out with former QB
Byron Leftwich.
SPORTS But the statistics
tell a different
TALK story. On the field,
L Cutler and Garrard
JOHN L. are basically the
CRAWFORD same guy. For his
...- career, Cutler has
completed 62.5 per-
cent of his passes for 9,024 yards
and 54 touchdowns. Garrard, over-


all, has completed 61.2 percent of
his passes for 9,672 yards and 51
touchdowns. Granted Garrard has
been around a lot longer, however,
he and Cutler have been full-time
starters for virtually the same
amount of time.
But it's off the field, and namely
in the locker room, where
Jacksonville would have made a mis-
take in exchanging their starting
quarterback for Denver's and for the
very reason Cutler wanted the trade.
For those who missed it, Denver
head coach Josh McDaniels made it
known when he took the Broncos
job that he was interested in starting
fresh with his own quarterback and
wanted to sign New England backup
Matt Cassel. No problem, right? The
NFL is a business and McDaniels


was interested in making a business
move. But when that didn't work out
because New England placed a fran-
chise tag on Cassel, McDaniels
seemed content to continue with
Cutler. By that time, however, Cutler
was in "I'm gonna take my ball and
go home" mode. After several failed
attempts to communicate with
Cutler, the Broncos finally gave in to
his trade demands.
Garrard, meanwhile, has been
nothing but a model citizen and,
from all accounts, a leader on and
off the field while in Jacksonville. Of
course he could have moaned and
groaned while sitting behind
Leftwich (who coincidentally still
hasn't found a home as a starting
quarterback in the league) but he
was never anything but the consum-


mate gentleman while biding his
time.
To put it plain and simple, Cutler
comes off as a whiner and Garrard
represents himself as a man.
So while it seems Jacksonville
might have passed on a golden
opportunity to sign a young gun-
slinger who many believe will some-
day be mentioned with the all-time
greats of the game, general manager
Gene Smith and company couldn't
have made a better decision than to
sit on their hands. Cutler might very
well mature and evolve into a leader
someday. Garrard is already a leader
and always has been.

S, The fairway bunker shot is one of
the most difficult in the game since
we do not see it that often. Perhaps
the hardest part is to figure out
which club is the right one to use.
SThe most important aspect of this is
to not,think about the green. Your
sole focus should be on trying to determine which
club will allow you to clear the lip of the bunker so
you will not bury it in the lip. Here are a couple
other tips to remember when you are playing the
fairway bunker shot. Unlike a bunker shot near the
green, you do not need to dig your feet in the sand
very much at all. This would make your feet below
.the ball and you could hit a fat shot. The other tip
is to not try and make a fancy shot from the fairway
bunker. Just make your normal swing and the
results will turn out much better than you think.

"More importantly, it has

we can fish right up and down

Some of these sloughs
were actually located by keep-
ing a close watch on the fish

two-foot change in the bottom
depth. Once a slough was
located, Cartwright and his
fishing companions would
drop the anchor and set out
their reliable drum baits, a
combination of blue crab and
clam.
"Some of these sloughs
can be more productive than
others," explains Cartwright.
"We have found when you

GPS for mariners class
Whether you are a complete novice just
thinking that GPS may be a useful navigation
tool, someone.who has never managed to get a
grip on the technology or a GPS user who
wants to learn more, this program conducted
by Flotilla 14-1 of the Coast Guard Auxiliary
could be for you. It is a hands-on course and it
is preferable that all participants bring their
transportable GPS with spare batteries and
users manual to the sessions..
The program is conducted in two sessions
on successive Saturdays, April 25 and May 2.
Each session will begin at 9 a.m. at the
Fernandina Lighthouse facility on Amelia
Island and last about three hours. There is a
$25 charge for course materials. For informa-
tion and registration, contact Bob Sperry at

Summer boating safety
Summer will soon be here and for many
parents, this may be the first time your family
goes boating. To make sure everyone is ready,
, the non-profit BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating
Safety and Clean Water has three free online
resources at www.BoatUS.com/foundation to
make sure the kids are safe.
Having a child wear an adult or incorrect-
ly-sized life jacket could be as dangerous as
having no life jacket at all, giving parents a
false sense of security. A short online video
explains how to fit a right-sized life jacket to
your child.
Boaters don't always have every kid-sized
life jacket aboard. However, the BoatU.S.
Foundation has over 500 locations across the
country local marinas, fire departments and
other waterfront businesses where parents
can borrow a kid's life jacket (in various sizes)
for the day or weekend, absolutely free. The
website allows parents to search for a Kid's
Life Jacket Loaner location near them. The
program loaned out over 90,000 life jackets
last year and three lives have been saved to
date.
Confused about who needs a life jacket?
The website has a state-by-state listing of life
jacket regulations.

Join the auxiliary
The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary
needs volunteers. It is composed of uniformed
non-military volunteers who assist the Coast
Guard in all of its varied missions, except for
military and direct law enforcement.
These men and women can be found on the
nation's waterways, in the air, in classrooms
and on the dock. Training opportunities, most


of which are free, include boat crew and
coxswain (small boat-operator) vessel examin-
er, boating safety class instructor, public
affairs, marine visitor dhd others.
Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, at least 17
years old and pass a basic background check.
There are no upper age limits or height or
weight standards (although boat crew must
perform certain tasks). There are no mini-
mum service hours.
Flotilla 14-01 meets at the Amelia Island
Lighthouse facility once a month.

PrincessAmelia coming to town to bring HistoryAlive


Museum of History has
come up with a unique
event. They just keep doing

Once a year the museum hosts a
major fundraising event somewhere
in the Historic District. Proud as the
museum is of its jailhouse home,
docents will be quick to tell you that
the island's Historic District is the
island's real museum. To walk the
streets and learn the stories of the
beautiful old houses isto learn the
history of the island.
Many remember the very first
History Alive event. Partygoers wan-
dered throughout the Historic
District and wined and nibbled at the
Bailey House. The next year took
the moveable feast downtown and to
Centre Street and the Palace Saloon.
Hard to forget when the jailhouse lit-
erally rocked. Celebrating the
reopening of the old jailhouse
turned history museum, enthusias-
tic volunteers dressed in prisoner
stripes and, yes, there was an Elvis
sighting.
So how to top that? Royalty!
Everyone loves royalty, so John

Egmont, has agreed to host a recep-
tion for Princess Amelia Sophia

WEDNESDAY. APRIL 8.2009 LEISURE News-Leader


Scholarship winner wows on tenor sax


For the News-Leader

The Les DeMerle Amelia
Island Jazz Festival launched
its 2009 concert series with a
sizzling Swing into Spring ben-
efit show at the Palace Saloon
on Thursday. Highlighted by
strong" performances from
drummer DeMerle's dynamic
all-star unit and the festival's
first annual jazz scholarship
winner, tenor saxophonist
Jawren Walton, the program
delivered a crowd pleasing
array of jazz styles that ranged
from traditional New Orleans to
Modern.
DeMerle's trio opened the
show with pianist Doug
Matthews' rousing, innovative
take on "Down By The
Riverside," and the full band
followed with a breakneck ver-
sion of the classic, "I Found A
New Baby," as arranged by
multi-instrumentalist Dr. Bill
Prince. Vocalist Bonnie Eisele
took the stage and scored with
cool renditions of "This Can't
Love," and the Brazilian chest-
nut, "Agua De Beber."
A future jazz studies student
at the University of North
Florida, Walton joined DeMerle
and Eisele on 'stage to accept
the scholarship award, a $1,000
check. Walton immediately
proved fully worthy of the
honor as he joined the band
and soloed smoothly through
several notable jazz composi-
tions, including Duke
Ellington's 'Take The ATrain"
and "C-Jam Blues," Kenny
Dorham's "Blue Bossa," and a

stirring version of the ballad,
"'Too Young To Go Steady,"
which brought a standing ova-
tion from the audience. The
first set closed with a scat-
singing duet between DeMerle
and Walton that provided a
well-received measure of hilar-
ity.
Already a mature, well-
rounded musician, the 18-year-
old Walton took to playing with
the pros in stride. "I was just
thrilled to perform with such
wonderful musicians," he said,
but joked that "it was the first
time I have tried to scat sing
outside my bedroom.".
DeMerle added, "Jawren has
great musical instincts and was


in perfect sync with us all night
long."
For the second half of the
show, Walton contributed horn
fills to DeMerle's bluesy vocal
on Louis Jordan's "Let The
Good Times Roll," and the
entire group rolled through a
lively jazz set, featuring Eisele's
energetic turn.on Louis Prima's
"5 Months, 2 Weeks, 2 Days"
and culminatingiwith a distinc-
tive DeMerle arrangement of
Glenn Miller's "In The Mood,"
which had the crowd jitter-
bugging in the aisles.
In addition to DeMerle,
Prince, Matthews and Eisele,
musicians who rounded out the
program were Jim Malmgren
