Bunch over Malcolm; Steger mayor


Poynter,

Myers in

runoff
News-Leader
Fernandina. Beach voters chose a
new city commissioner Tuesday -
Jeffrey Bunch over incumbent Bruce
Malcolm, the mayor but there
apparently will be a runoff May 12 for a
second seat. Tim Poynter and Larry
Myers will square off after Jim B.
Higginbotham was eliminated.


Bunch Steger

Voters preferred Commissioner
Susan Steger for mayor by a large mar-
gin over Commissioner Eric Childers.
Two of four proposed amendments
to the city charter were rejected, with
voters keeping current limits on com-
mission terms, while two others were
approved.


More than 1,600 voters turned out,
double that of a year ago and about 20
percent of the registered voters.
Bunch, a former city fire marshal,
upset incumbent Malcolm, who is com-
pleting his first three-year term. Bunch
got 921 votes to 656 for Malcolm in
unofficial results.
Myers, a former city manager, and
Poynter, a downtown businessman,
are in a runoff because neither got a
majority of the votes. Poynter pulled
786, Myers 646 and former county
commissioner Higginbotham got 165.
The May 12 winner will replace
Commissioner Ron Sapp, who chose
not to seek reelection to a ninth term
on the board.
Steger defeated Childers in a straw
poll for mayor, 1,101 to 369. The vote


is advisory only, but by tradition the"
commission chooses the mayor based
on the straw ballot.
The two charter amendments were
rejected by varying margins. The first,
which would have extended commis-
sion terms from three to four years,
went down 1,040 to 564. Opposition
swelled after it was learned that incum-
bent commissioners Childers, Steger
and Ken Walker would get an extra
year on their current terms.
Voters also spurned a proposal to
end commissioner term limits, 1,238 to
352.
A recommendation that the com-
mission be given authority to change
the election date was approved, 813 to
728.
A fourth question prevailed 931 to


630. That change would require com-
missioners to ask permission of the
city attorney or city clerk to speak with
the employees they supervise, rather
than going to the city manager as
required now. The commission hires,
fires and supervises the manager, attor-
ney and clerk, who are all charter offi-
cers.
The new commission. takes office
May 19.
There are five commissioners, with
staggered terms. Commissioner
Walker's term expires next year,
and his would be the only seat to be
decided in the April election. The terms
of Childers and Steger end in 2011.
The new commissioners' terms expire
in 2012.

HANDS ON


Dramatic rise



in county fees



for facility use


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
approved Munday an ordinance dra-
iatically increasing fees for tise of
county lacilitics mure than double
for nonprofit groups using county com-
munity centers and several times that
for commercial groups.
The ordinance was an attempt to
standardize what the county charges
for use of its community centers and
ballparks after repeated requests from
various groups to waive the rental fees..
It's also intended to recoup the costs of
operating the facilities.
The old rates were $50 per day for
use of the county's community cen-
ters and $100 per day for the use of its
sports facilities. A slightly higher rate
was charged to out-of-county renters.
However, the fees were often waived
entirely when renters requested it.
The new schedule gives different
fee structures for commercial use, the
general public and nonprofit groups.
Commercial renters,. for example,
could pay up to $575 for a day's use of


the county's Multi-Use Facility in
Callahan.
County. Coordinator Edward
Sealover said that repeated fee waivers
had led to the upkeep cost on the facil-
ities outpacing income.
Building Maintenance Supervisor
Daniel Salmon said Tuesday that even
when fees were charged, they were
too low to keep up with expenses. "It
is ,(a big hike), but we weren't even
covering the utilities or the cleaning
with the old rates," Salmon said.
Salmon said the new fee structure
also brings Nassau County in line with
what other local governments are
charging for use of public facilities.
"They came up to be more compatible
with the other facilities that are in the
area," he said Tuesday. "We did a sur-
vey of the surrounding counties."
"In fiscal 2007 we were bringing in
something like $12,000, and expenses
were something like $22,000," Sealover
said at the meeting Monday. Charging
rental fees consistently could bring in
about $36,000 over the course of a year.

City OIs no-bid dredging contract and fiscal 'shell game


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernahdina Beach Commissioners
have approved a $370,000 no-bid con-
tract to dredge the city marina and a
budget transfer for it that the city
finance director conceded was "a math-
ematical shell game."
The no-bid contract was approved
by city commissioners April 7. Two
commissioners expressed reservations
about the contract, and Commissioner
Ron Sapp voted against it.
Commissioner Susan Steger and
Sapp were critical of the contract


because the job was not put out to bid
and because the expense will require
a budget transfer.
Sapp also questioned Finance
Director Patti Clifford about several
budget transfers earlier in the meeting,
one of which was $370,000 for the
dredging project.
Calling it a "mathematical shell
game," Clifford explained that while
the marina had a budget shortfall
because of no fuel sales for six weeks
while construction was under way,
"this is ,the way to have a balanced
budget and put it in the appropriate
columns."


Brance Diversified was hired for
the dredging work at the advice of res-
ident Lynn Williams, an experienced
sailor who has come before the city
commission many times over the past
few months complaining about silting
in the marina.
According to a city memo, dredging
does not require competitive bidding
under state law because it is consid-


ered a maintenance activity. But Steger
said she nevertheless felt "very uncom-
fortable" supporting the resolution.
'This is a no-bid contract," said
Steger. "I've learned the importance of
the bidding process... we've known for
months that we had to dredge."
Sapp was also against awarding the
contract because he felt the city had
dragged its heels for so long in hiring


a dredging contractor that the silting of
the marina had now become an emer-
gency. According to city code, the city
may forego the bidding process for
"extenuating circumstances or emer-
gency situations."
"We debated over the last year
whether we should go out for bids,"
said Sapp. 'To me, we created this
emergency ourselves. The bid process
is absolutely essential ... these no-bid
contracts do us and the people of
Fernandina Beach a disservice."
Vice Mayor Ken Walker conceded

Mrs. Elizabeth Beinadette'
, Seymour, 77, of Fernandina
Beach, FL passed away Satur-
day afternoon, April 11. 2007
from complications of a stroke..
Elizabeth was a loved and
admired woman known for her"
tenacity and will to live and give,
to others. Three words that sum
up her life are: exuberance, per-
sistence and beauty. Born
December 5, 1931 in Pelepia,
Poland, the daughter of Walter
and Susan Slyz, she lived her
younger years Jon the family
farm. The war emerged with a'
fury in Poland as both the
Germans and' Soviets drove
through her homeland. Eliza-.
beth, at the age of eight, and-
her family had their land 'and
homestead taken by force and
the family became nomadic
refuges traveling in search of
safely throughout much of the
war.
Throughout the next decade
and teenage years she lived a
difficult and burdensome life,
first in the Soviet Union travel-
ing in rail cars across the coun-,
try into Siberia. The family man-
aged to migrate through Persia
(modern day Iraq), into India
where they eventually boarded
a refugee ship that made its way
into Kenya. Elizabeth and her
family lived the remainder of
the war in a Polish refugee
camp run by the British and
supported by the Catholic mis-
sion. In the trek she endured
cholera and lost family mem-
bers while estran-ged from her
father who was required to
serve in the Russian/Polish
Army in exchange for his fami-
ly's departure from Poland.
After the war, the family set-
tfled in Surrey County, England,
where in a few years she met


and married Ronald A. Seymour
'on September 7,1952 at the age
of 21. They were married by
the monks at Blackheath
Monastary in Wayfiars, Englaid
and have been together for 57
'years. In the early 50's they,
migrated to Canada and then
eventually to the United States
in the Chicago areain search of
a new beginning for their fami-
ly. Her life-long dream was her
home and she cherished every
moment with her husband, Ron,
in their long marriage.
Elizabeth was predeceased
by her brother John Collins and
is survived by her husband,
Ronald A. Seymour; two sons
Richard and Christopher; one
sister, Barbara Longland; four
grandchildren and three great
grandchildren that brought her.
much joy. The family resides in
Fernandina Beach.
A Mass of Christian Burial
will be celebrated at 11 a.m.
Wednesday, April 15, at St.
Michael's Catholic Church, 505

was created by indecisiveness,

Czymbor should not be
blamed.
"I'm responsible as much

"Numerous times we delayed
the opportunity to do the

"Quite simply, it's got to be
done now," said Commissioner
Eric Childers. "Mr. (Lynn)

clear that he found someone to
do it cheaper than anyone

Czymbor said that while he
understood the concern over

was "considerably cheaper"
than the contract awarded for
the 2006 dredging.
The cost is $1.50 cheaper

to Elliot, any other marine man-

Clifford said after the meet-

but that money was not used
because of fuel price declines
and the lack of fuel sales dur-
ing construction.
Clifford also noted that the
city had never budgeted for
dredging of the marina, though
it had originally budgeted
$800,000 for marina projects.
That is not enough to complete

County writes off$170Kin bad loans


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County
Commission agreed to write
off more than $170,000 in
defaulted loans at its .April 8
meeting. The loans, which took
the form of second mortgages
through the State Housing
Initiatives Partnership, were
on the books when Nassau
County took over the program
from the Northeast Florida
Regional.Council in 2007.
The SHIP program helps
first-time homebuyers with
expenses 3_sjciated %v.ith pur-
chasing a house. It offers al'0-
year, non-interest-bearing sec-
ond mortgage on homes up to
$250,000.
When the county took over
the program, 705 county resi-
dents had received SHIP assis-
tance of some kind. Of those,
there were 15 SHIP loan recip-
iernts whose first mortgages
had been foreclosed on. They
still owed the SHIP program a
total of $171,302.74 an
amount that Office of


Management and Budget
Director Ted Selby said was
probably unrecoverable.
"There was very little
money to be had as a second
mortgage holder (once the first
mortgage was foreclosed on),"
Selby told the commission. "In
my opinion, these should have
been written off years ago. ....
There's very little to be gained
by going after this but they,
are still on the books."
"I agree with everything
Mr. Selby said," County
Attorney David Hallman said.
"When the first mortgage went
into' &.reclosu.. if. extin-
gushed ihe ibion the's6cond
mortgage."
According to Selby, as a sec-
.ond mortgage holder the coun-
ty doesn't have priority when a
first mortgage is foreclosed on.
"We would have been second
in line if not third, because
any outstanding taxes would
have been paid first," he said
Thursday. After that, the bank
holding the first mortgage
would try to recover some of its
moriey,-he added.


"At this point in the game,
'they're virtually uncollectible,"
he said. "Some of them are as
old as 1998-99 when they-did
foreclosures. There's very little
expectation of recovering any
money at this point." '
Commissioner Mike Boyle
said risk is to be expected with
SHIP loans. "Philosophically
we almost have to look at the
SHIP program as an uncollat-
eralized loan," he said at the
meeting. "Because of the peo-
ple who are involved, however
good their intentions, we just
can't.go into this thinking we're
'I thihk Mr. Selbv's'veWis
very accurate, which brings
the question to my mind and
maybe I'm the lone voice here
whether we want to be a part
of this program," Boyle added.
"The only thing I can say is
that (SHIP money) is state
funds, not your taxpayer dol-
lars," Selby said. .
Commissioner Stacy
Johnson defended the pro-
gram. "From the other end,
talking'to the people who ben-

efit from this program, it is an
important part of Nassau
County," she said.
The commission voted
unanimously to write off the
.entire amount of the debt.

FEES Continued from 1A4
Commissioner Mike Boyle,
long a proponent of maintain-
ing a consistent rental policy,
said the county shouldn't be los-
ing money on community facil-
ities. "I think it's time we
stopped running a deficit oper-
ation here,"
There was some discussion
about how to break down the
fees. The ordinance as written
gave one rate for a full day's
rental and a slightly lower rate
for a half-day.
"Do we really need to come
up with an hourly rate as well?"
Commissioner Danny Leeper
asked.
."I understand your sugges-
tion that we could get this down
to an hourly rate, but most
rentals are by the day and half-
day," Boyle said. Leeper agreed
to support the ordinance as writ-
ten and review its effectiveness
after a time.
There was also some ques-
tion about whether groups rent-
ing the facilities could still
request fee waivers.
Commission Chair Barry
Holloway felt that waivers had
been granted too subjectively


in the past. "We either charge
everybody or charge them
nothing," he said. "I'm in favor
of this (ordinance) so we can
at least try to break even."
"I think we could cut these
(waiver) requests to almost
nothing if each one of us would
tell people when they come to
us, 'I'm sorry, but we can't do
that anymore,'" Boyle said.
Commissioner Stacy
Johnson was against even enter-
taining waiver requests in the
future. "I think we'd be in a
tough position if we started
granting waivers if there's a fee'
schedule in place for nonprof-
its," she said. "We should just
charge fees across the board
and not worry about the
waivers."
County Attorney David
Hallman assured the board that
the ordinance as written did not
contain any clauses under
which a waiver could be grant-
ed with the exception of one
which grants waivers to organ-
izations already exempt until'
the end of the fiscal year.
The ordinance passed unan-
imously. It will take effect imme-
diately upon filing with the
Florida Department of State.


County budget meeting Monday


The Nassau County
Commission will hold a special
meeting Monday to invite pub-
lic comment on the county's
2009-10 budget priorities. The 6


p.m. meeting will be held in the
county commission chambers
at the James S. Page

Ifnot for bad news...


If not for bad news, there
would be no financial news
right now.
A perusal of a
Jacksonville business publi-
cation is enough to put you
in a sour mood. Topics of
bankruptcies and foreclo-
sures and troubled times are
the perennial focus while
positive news is tucked away
on the back pages.
For certain, the economic
downtown is the worst many
of us have lived through -or
at least remember.
Jobs here and elsewhere
are being lost at a frighten-
ing pace and economic
growth has slowed to a
crawl. And asset values
across the board have
declined precipitously.
However, there will be
glimmers of hope and confi-
dence. At some point, the
news stops getting worse.
Job losses level off, compa-
nies begin expanding again
and the markets settle down.
Then, and only then, can the
healing begin.
Judging from recent pub-
lications, we are nowhere
close to the equilibrium
between good and bad
news. Consider these recent
financial headlines:
"Bankruptcy surge fueled by
bad loans," or "Troubled
(newspaper) will survive,
publisher says."
It gets even worse: "Sales,
of businesses drop 12%," and

pages,
"Develo-
pers say
STEVE'S state regu-
MARKET lation driv-
PLACE ing growth
to other
Steve Nicklas states,".
....- and finally,;
"Survey:
Small businesses hit hard,
shifting strategies." And this
is just the first few pages. ,
Unfortunately, news can
be packaged in such a way
that it is dramatized, or sen-
sationalized. When the first
six or seven articles of a pub-
lication are negative, it cer-
tainly sets a disheartening
pace and mood.
This does not mean a
publication is slanted or
jaded. It's just the negative,
circle we are confronted with
right now. Believe it or not,
there are some positive busi-
ness developments in our
area.
German banking giant
Deutsche Bank is hiring for
its new operations center on
the south side of Jackson-
ville. Also, a new port facility
alongside the Dames Point
Bridge has been constructed
with precision and timeli-


ness. Several new Asian ship-
ping companies are moving
into the Jacksonville market-
place.
On the south bank of
downtown Jacksonville, the
glitzy high-rise condomini-
ums continue to be complet-
ed. Though many are empty,
their construction is a bonus
for a job-starved market-
place.
Shipping, as well as truck-
ing, rail, and air cargo, will
continue to put the city of
Jacksonville and surround-
ing markets on the world-
wide map. Having the pres-
ence of Deutsche Bank does
not hurt in the financial
sense.
By the way, both the
international shipping con-
glomerates and the German
bank will add thousands of
high-paying jobs for the area.
In fact, a new employee of
Deutsche Bank has moved
to Nassau County. ;
Our area continues to
offer many positives. Major
sporting events such as The
Players Championship in
Ponte Vedra Beach next
month are additional draw-
ing cards. It's just that the
news deck seems stacked
against anything positive or
uplifting. right now.

'Fire sale' on Florida land


University of Florida
GAINESVILLE Keeping in step with the
U.S. economy, Florida land values took a majot
tumble in 2008, with some areas losing more
than half of their 2007 worth.
According to the annual Florida Land Value
Survey, conducted by the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, rural
land and land outside of metropolitan areas -
eagerly sought by developers in recent years -
is now commonly being offered for sale at a frac-
tion of its cost.
"In some cases, it's almost like a fire sale," said
Rodney Clouser, the UF professor of food and
resource economics who led the survey. Some
respondents reported large blocks of land being
offered at 20 to 30 percent of their purchase
price.
A population boom between 2002 and 2006
contributed to a dramatic rise in land prices
throughout Florida. But now, the state's annual
population increase is expected to be only 10
percent of the boom years' growth, according to
UF population projections.
The survey, which does not cover urban land
values, showed that land outside of cities primed
for development, dubbed transition' land,
decreased by as much as 55 percent in the north-
ern half of the state.
Transition land within five miles of urban cen-
ters in the southern half of the state lost nearly
40 percent of its value.,


However, in the one exception to the other-
wise gloomy economic picture, transition land
more than five miles away from urban centers in
the southern half of the state increased by 5 per-
cent. Most likely, this is because its low price and
relative location to large cities was seen as the
best deal by those still looking to buy real estate,
Clouser said.
. Nevertheless, the 5 percent increase is sig-
nificantly smaller than,the nearly 17 percent
increase for the same area last year.
Lagging development hasn't just affected
areas destined for shopping malls and homes. It
has also contributed to drops as large as 26 per-
cent in farmland values.
Although such land is typically evaluated pri-
marily by the profitability of the crop produced,
urban expansion was so rapid in recent boom
years that many began to evaluate the land based
on what it would bring if used for housing or
other development purposes, Clouser said.
Land' prices are expected to continue their
drop through 2009- although not as dramatically
as in 2008. Survey responses from individuals
involved in the Florida real estate market predict
an overall drop between 5 and 17 percent.
Even after the national economic picture
brightens, Clouser said, a surplus of homes and
other existing development would need to be
sold before demand would once' again drive land
prices up.
The report can *be viewed at
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/FE798.

Family practice grows in Yulee


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
It's lunchtime at Yulee,
Family Practice Center and staff
dart in and out of Dr. James
Price's office, attempting to con-
trol the chaos of a "normal" day
tending to a steady stream of
patients.
You'd think it would be all
business, but instead the room
is filled with good-natured rib-
bing and a lot of laughter, as
even a few longtime patients
duck their heads inside the door
to trade quips with the doctor.
"I think unique to this prac-
tice, we try to keep a good out-
look on everything, and that is
reflected in our patient care,"
says Price, who recently wel-
comed two new doctors, mak-
ing Yulee Family Practice
arguably the biggest family
medicine provider in Nassau
County.
Dr. Anna Wright worked for
the last several years as associ-
ate medical director for
Community Hospice of
Northeast Florida, and the prior
10,years as an associate profes-
sor for the University of Florida
Family Practice Residency
Program in Jacksonville. Dr.
Robert Reid, who joins the prac-
tice this month, is a longtime
Fernandina resident and ER
physician, military contractor
and family practice provider
who also has worked for the
University of Florida for sever-
al years.
He's already a familiar face
to many of the center's patients,
filling in when Price went on
vacation and when he under-
went shoulder surgery last year.
"I got such an onslaught of
patients who loved him, he total-
ly ruined my practice," jokes
Price, adding on a more seri-
ous note, "He's very compas-
sionate. He's got a lot of expe-
rience."
Besides three MDs all resi-
dency trained and boarded in
family practice medicine, an
advanced registered nurse prac-
titioner and two physician's
assistants-certified, support staff
includes nurses, nurse assis-
tants, referral specialists and
front and back office employ-
ees. Some have been with Price
since he opened his doors in
1995 in partnership with Shands

certifiedTWilbur Johnson, advanced registered nurse practitioner Kristie Ruff, Dr.

Jacksonville.
S'"There was nothing out here
to rent," Price says .of Yulee at
the time. "So we built the
office." Five years later, the prac-
tice had grown so much they
had to expand. "We continued
to get busier and busier and
decided to double the size of
the building," he says.
He's quick to note that "it's
not just by accident, it's by plan-
ning" that Yulee Family Practice
has been so successful. And that
means each and every hire has
to be a perfect fit, like Wright,
whom he admires not just for
her obvious abilities as a doctor,
but also because "she's just
such a good-hearted person.
She's a good fit here with every-
body else that's very impor-
tant." He's equally effusive in
* his praise of the rest of the
members of the practice.,
The way Price sees it, "you
should want to come to work,"
and if staff is happy, that trans-
lates into patients that are happy
and well cared for.
'We try to go the extra mile
as far as helping patients in
service and referrals. That's
why we recently hired another
referral speciali-st." lie says.

imagine," says Price, who also
serves as an assistant associate
'professor, hosting medical stu-
dents on their family practice
rotations.
"It sort of keeps you on your
toes because they are smarter
than you would believe," he
says, laughing. "But I have
them, because I have the clini-
cal experience."
In fact, if you asked Price
(or any of his classmates from
Terry Parker High School in
Jacksonville, he points out)
where he thought he'd be today,
it wouldn't be running a family
practice center.
"I never had any idea that
this was what I would be doing
I just sequenced," he says. "I
just knew it was important to
finish school." That's an under-
statement for the former lieu-
tenant with the rescue division
of the Jacksonville Fire
Department, who sprung it on
his wife, Sharon, and two young
daughters in 1982 that he want-
ed to go to medical school at


the age of 35. He knew he was
too old to be accepted at an
American school, so the family
sold their house and all their
belongings and moved to the
Dominican Republic, where
Price studied medicine at the
English-speaking Cifas School
of Medicine in Santa Domingo,
which bases admission on expe-
rience rather than age. He
returned to the U.S. for his res-
idency rotations and finished
up at Michigan State University.
Upon graduating; he spent a
few years as the ER medical
director at What is now Baptist
Medical Center Nassau, before
opening Yulee Family Practice
Center with Shands.
"I think we've got a great lit-
tle organization here, and
Shands has supported me with
everything I've wanted to do
and has been 100 percent
behind me," says Price. "You're
.looking at a lot of smart people
with a lot of experience here,
and it's all in family practice."

HEATHER A.PERRY
News-Leader
With everyone thinking
green these days, the empha-
sis on reusing and recycling
older furniture has increased.
Making old things new has
been Rick Asberry's stock and
trade for almost 30 years.
Asberry has been rebuild-
ing, restoring and refinishing
furniture since about 1980,
working, on all types of furni-
ture from 200-year-old desks
to cane and rush chairs and
everything in between.
"His reputation for excel-
lence extends beyond Amelia
-Island," said Willyne Blan-
chard. "Rickis a genuine, gift-
ed, humble sort of guy.".
The self-taught furnisher
refinisher and antiques dealer
is no stranger to hard work.
Restoring antiques is a long,
painstaking process, but well
worth it in. the end, according
to Asberry.
"You couldn't begin to buy
a piece like this for what it cost


to refurbish it," said Asberry,
pointing to a hafidsome 20thi
century pigeonhole desk he
had recently refinished.
Refinishing furniture is not
Asberry's only talent, however.
as evidenced by the many
beautiful items on display in
his antique shop. Using a vari-
ety of woods including curly
maple, mahogany, black w al-
nut and others, Asberry crafts
cabinets of every size and
description.
The most unusual request
he's had was placing antlers
on an African mask.
"People come to ine iand
describe what they want an:d
then it's up to me to create il
for them," said Asberry.
The little house at 219 S

dazzling array of handcrafted
and antique furniture, willow

more. Store hours are 8 a.m. to

OPINION


Felix and the Goldfish


Congratulations to Felix
Jones for beating City Hall. The
outpouring of support from the
citizens of our city in support
of Felix was truly heartwarming
and inspirational.
Because of the overwhelm-
ing support in this community
for Felix and his right to peddle
his goods downtown, the city
decided to drop the issue of cit-
ing him. I feel very proud to be
a part of such a loving and sup-
portive community and it goes
to show that the voice of the
people can and will be heard.
Let this be a message to
the city commission and the
mayor to address the real prob-
lems of the city (i.e., the hard-
ships faced by our downtown
businesses and bed and break-
fasts due to 'overwhelming tax
bills, and to the never-ending
drug problem we have in this
community).
Mary Myer
Fernandina Beach

No doubt City Manager
Michael Czymbor is the unsung
hero of the Felix Jones episode.


As one who has for several
years served Fernandina Beach
in his own quiet and intelligent
way, Michael has been con-
fronted lately by residents and
visitors who are concerned
about Felix Jones's safety as
well as their own safety on the
more and more congested
Centre Street.
Always seeking to respond
to those he serves, Michael
referred to a 1955 ordinance
which, he readily admitted,
needed to be updated and
revised so that Felix could con-
tinue doing his life's work in the
safest possible environment.
As one who has worked
almost 33 years at Amelia Island
Care Center, home for 70 young
mentally/physically. handi-
capped residents, one of our
goals is to help each of our peo-
ple to become responsible and
responsive to those around,
while continuing to be the won-
derful people they are.


This is the very ideal
Michael Czymbor was trying
to help Felix to reach.
One might say Michael
helped Felix to find his groove
when he encouraged Felix to
be responsible and responsive,
obeying the rules for his own
safety and the safety of othei a.
And so Felix continues his
life's work, hopefully more safe,
more noticed and now, with
thousands of fans, thanks in
great part to Michael Czymbor,
who was simply doing his job.
Go Michael! Go Felix!
Willyne Blanchard
Fernandina Beach

As a rebuttal to Mr. Coleman
Langshaw (Opinions from the
Goldfish, April 8), who drew
"first blood"?
I honestly believe this story
goes much deeper than any of
our own emotions and how we
feel about the underdogs being
picked on by the more powerful
of this world, or so it seemed at
the time. Funny how this should
happen at Easter when Jesus
rose from the dead after dying
for our sins. It seems to be that
Felix's motives are not like most
others. He seeks neither power
nor greed. A simple man with a
physical handicap who most
likely endures more than his
share of physical pain and suf-
fering, but holds a job to sup-
port his mother and himself. In
his spare time he shows love
and gives joy to others while
taking donations to help those
less fortunate. He reminds me
of Jesus. He might not be build-
ing his wealth in this world, but
maybe in the place that really
counts. I think deep down we
would all like to be more like
Felix.
John Eklund
Fernandina Beah

Coleman "the goldfish"
Langshaw's opinion on Felix is
typical of the same liberal mind-
set that is screwing up things
everywhere. He takes the side
of the collective (the govern-
ment) over the individual
(Felix). To nanny-stale pinheads
like the goldfish, government
represents the collective good
and is all important individ-


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


ual rights are secondary at best.
This philosophy is contrary
against our founding documents
- the constitution was written
for the express purpose of lim-
iting what the government
could do and' to establish indi-
vidual rights! Yes, rules are
rules, but those enforcing them
should be expected to exercise
common sense after all, pub-
lic servants are supposed to be
serving -the people not the
government.
Kevin Lawrence
Fernandina Beach

Once again Coleman
Langshaw in typical liberal fash-
ion proves he is the very thing
he despises. In his "do jus I say
not as I do" rant he advises the
supporters of Felix Jones to
"Put out the torches, pull down
the rope with the noose and act
like responsible citizens." Mr.
Langshaw proves by his own
pen that he is an irresponsible
citizen. If anyone is guilty of
getting "all insane and throw a
rope with a noose over the clos-
est oak tree," it is Langshaw in
judgment of the citizens of this
community. Perhaps you would
be better served to practice
what you preach, Mr. Lang-
shaw. I believe you have lost
your moral compass.
Marla Southwell
Yulee

Thank goodness for the
level-headed, thoughtful opin-
ions of your columnist Coleman
Langshaw. Like him, I was
appalled by the attitudes of
many in the public and in the
News-Leader's own reporters
and editorial staff. I am appalled
that they thought that if the law
'didn't quite measure up to what
they thought should happen,
then the law should just be
ignored.
The question never was
about whether Felix Jones was
a good person; it was always
about what the law said. The
emphasis should have been (1)
whether the law actually pro-
hibited some of Felix's activi-
ties and (2) whether the law
was a good law to have on the
books. It never should have
been about "being kind" to Felix
and excusing him from follow-
ing the law.
If the law is bad, the city
commission should repeal it or
change it,, and they have the
authority to do that.iThe bne
thing'that neither the commis-
sion nor the city manager has
the authority to do is to ignore
the law. Allowing selected peo-
ple to break the law and do
nothing about it is not American
nor democratic; at best it is anar-
chy and at worst it is rule by
favoritism.
I am pleased for Felix that
there were some level hepds
who tackled the problem prop-
erly and were able to conclude
that Felix was not breaking the
law. If they had found that he
was indeed in violation, then he
should have stopped until the'
law was repealed or modified.
Bill Hooper
Fernandina Beach

As a businessman who fish-
es and launches from the city
docks at least 80 times a year, I
have noticed the worst repre-


sentatives of the city of Fernan-
dina are those who wear the
blue shirts and are employed
by the city and are supervised
by Coleman Langshaw. All
these folks have to do is assist
in tying up boats, pump gas and
be friendly and be goodwill
ambassadors to our city. But do
they do this no. The folks
wearing the blue shirts are hos-
tile, sullen and really not happy
about greeting folks coming in
on boats to our city; they act
like it is a bother to them. The
best goodwill ambassadors are
the folks that work at Atlantic
Seafood and Tackle, Charlie
Taylor and his employees. They
are fun, friendly and add local
color to our community and
serve as great ambassadors to
our community.-
So in their wisdom our city
leaders want to tear down
Atlantic Seafood and Tackle,
charge them more for a new
building and keep the staff of
Langshaw and crew on the pay-
roll. This is where the problem
is with Fernandina government.
As long as the city has
employees such as Langshaw
and Czymbor feeding from the
public trough someone should
tell them their job is to solve
problems, not create problems.
The excuse I was only enforcing
the law or following orders did
not work for the Germans in
1946, it should not be a substi-
tute for common sense in 2009.
Jim Tucker
Fernandina Beach

Mr. Langshaw's column epit-
omizes bureaucratic obfusca-
tion of the truly important. One
should never forget the rule of
unintended consequences of
laws written by lawyers. More
importantly, it is possible for an
intelligent, thoughtful and
humane government, a rarity I
admit, to discern when an
exception to rule is the correct
choice. But then Coleman'sindi-
rect support of our city's initial
, stance on Felix may be useful in
preserving his status as an
employee for which he may be
forgiven even though the job
should have been abolished
years ago.

After I subscribed to the

statements concerning Mr.

bounced back and forth
between praising Felix and then
criticizing those that supported
those efforts! He chided his fel-
low Fernandina Beach
American citizens for exercis-
ing their civic duty rights by
gathering at City Hall 'to
express concerns over an injus-
tice being perpetrated on one of
their fellow citizens! I suggest
that the large number in atten-
dance that necessarily over-
flowed the capacity of the meet-
ing room and clogged Ash
Street amply demonstrated
those concerns.
He used pejorative terms
like "pitchforks and torches."
Nothing could be further from
the truth. I was part of that
group and what I saw were peo-
ple of every age, every political
party, every ethnic group all
with one mind, stop the injus-
tice.
He expressed some dismay
that "co-workers" were being
"berated so unfairly." I pre-
sumed he was referring to Mr.
Czymbor. All I can say is, "if
you can't take the heat then get
out of the kitchen." A public
office is exactly that, a public
office. Every public employee
knows that at some time you
are indeed "damned if you do
and damned if you don't!"
Those are the rules of the
game. If you can't play hardball
then don't go out on the field!
I totally disagree with his
premise "this community lost
it's reasoning." I believe, quite
to the contrary, perhaps our
community has found their rea-
soning!

Felix for City Manager. Has
a nice ring to it. At least he's a
proven winner and has sur-
vived tough times. Probably
puts more than 20,000 miles on
his bike before he trades it in
for a new one.
Seems like we have an epi-
demic of duck syndrome on
this island lately. That happens
where you have nobodies want-
ing to be somebodies. When
someone has been a little duck
in a big puddle all their life, and
all -ot'i suddpel theybecomte a
big 'duck in 'a little puddle, all
they want to do is quack, quack,
quack.
In 1963, Union Carbide
asked me to cruise their 3,000-
plus acres on the south end of
the island to see if there was
'enough pine timber on it to pay
the property taxes. As I stum-
bled over palmetto clumps and
fought my way through hordes
of swarming mosquitoes and
no-see-umns, I thought, "What
a waste!"
Now is that foresight or is
that foresight? About as good as
the foresight of local county
and city politicians. But boy, is
their hindsight good, all 20-20.
My hindsight is-good, too.
I'm still looking for.those
pine trees. They are getting far-
ther and farther away..
Keep pedaling Felix.

VIEWPOINT
RANDY RICE/AMELIA ISLAND

A sustainable


idea: Amelia

Off the Grid'

S sometimes in trying times, seemingly
simple actions can result in tremen-
dous rewards.
In the first half of 1942, German
U-boats suink 108 ships right off our coast.
U-boats would wait in the dark until they
saw ships silhouetted by the lights of coastal
cities. They would then simply advance and
attack these merchant ships with guns or .
torpedoes, resulting in over 1,100 casualties.
The History of United States Military
Operations in World War II describes part of
the cause of this slaughter:
"One of the most reprehensible failures
on our part was the neglect of local commu-
nities to dim their waterfront lights, or of,
military authorities to require them to do so,
until three months after the submarine,
offensive started. When this obvious
defense ndawute was firstprotiosedr:,. ':h
sqtiawls'weantlp! all the'way froin Atllntic .
City to southern Florida that the 'tourist sea-
son would be ruined.' Miami and its luxuri-
ous suburbs threw up six miles of neon-light
glow, against which the southbound ship-
ping that hugged the reefs to avoid the Gulf
Stream was.silhouetted. Ships were sunk
and seamen drowned in order that the citi-
zenry might enjoy business and pleasure as
usual."
On April 18 1942, an order was given by
the Eastern Sea Frontier that put an end to
waterfront lights and illuminated pylon
signs. This seemingly small action saved the
lifeline for the Allied forces in World War II.
While today we may not be in a world
war, we are in another kind of battle that
centers on the environment, quality of life,
economic prosperity and the use of
resources that make that prosperity possi-
ble. For example, tpday America imports 70
percent of the oil we use. We also operate
under a billowing trade deficit. Some of the
dollars we spend to fill our cars make it into
the hands of radicals who wish that America
didn't exist. So in this sense we are in a seri-
ous struggle that has cost over 4,000
American'lives just in Iraq, as we try to
maintain stability in one of the oil rich areas
of the world. But are we like some of those
people in 1942 who wanted to maintain their
convenience or are we willing to make
changes that can enhance the security of our
economy and environment while promoting
peace for our country?
On this year's April 18, you have an,
opportunity to join with members of your
community to help mend some of the repte-
hensible failures of our day. I would invite
your participation in "Amelia Off the Grid: a
Workshop for a Sustainable Community."
This all-day event, hosted by the Amelia
Island Institute, is designed to highlight the
most pressing resource issues we face local-_
ly and provide grass roots ideas to change
our local ordinances to reward sustainable
activity. It will also provide individuals with
powerful information regarding tax credits
and other funds currently available that will
pay for up to 30 percent of certain home
improvement activities.
"Brainstorm" committees for grants and
funding, land use, water quality issues, ener-
gy and waste/recycling are forming now
that will address critical aspects of our com-
munity sustainability. The goal for each of
these groups is to develop consensus on
action items that would provide both an envi-
ronmental and economic benefit to the com-
munity as a whole as well as provide ideas
for you individually that can save you money
on energy costs. The workshop is 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. Saturday-at Fernandina City Hall. For
more information contact Marjorie Weibe-
Reed at 491-0072 or e-mail ricearch@bell-
south.net..Come join us as we find new ways
to "dim the waterfront lights" for the safety
and prosperity of our generation.

SVIEWPOINT/JOE GERRITY/FERNANDINA BEACH


City has priorities backwards


t has been a tough year for many of us. We
have seen the value of our homes and real
estate investments decline dramatically,
along with our 401K and other retirement
plans. We have endured several rate hikes from
Florida Public Utilities, almost doubling the
cost of electricity in a year. Many have lost
their jobs, and-still others are facing foreclo-
sure on their homes.
Our city government has not done much to
help ease the financial strain. Instead, it has
piled on the rate increases with a vengeance,
among other things. In June we saw our
garbage rate increase almost 25 percent,
thanks to our no-bid contract. It is impossible
to quantify the cost to the citizens over the five-
year period, but it has to be well into six fig-
ures. In July we endured the 911 call of the city
manager looking for the fire department. In
August we sat with piles of storm debris in our
yards for weeks while the administration tried
to figure out if we had a contract to provide for
debris removal after a storm.
It just continued into the fall, with the city
commission approving the first increase in the
tax rate in several years. Along with that tax
increase we also received a 25 percent
increase in our sewer rates. The commission,
led by Commissioner Eric Childers, tried to
find a way to spread the increase out of three
years, but since the city was in "technical
default" (a memo dated Sept. 10, 2009, to staff
from Burton and Associates) of its bond'
covenants, the increase was passed on in one
year. .
In October, I personally had the unpleasant
experience of finding out the cost of a fence
permit had tripled in the past three years.
Then we had the pleasure of purchasing the
city manager a new car to replace his 2 1/2-
year-old vehicle with 22,000 miles. Then we

A 'the stimulus package, which
seems to be a dead end.
In the beginning of 2009 I
wrote a viewpoint chastising
I ^e the city for its spending and
Gerrity urged some restraint. My
good friend and former col-
league on the Commission,
Vice Mayor Ken Walker, replied that I was
"crying wolf." The next week the city manager
put a "freeze" on "discretionary" spending.
Good thing we ordered that new car for the
city manager early in the fiscal year. Funny
how that worked out.
That was the middle of February. At the
first meeting in March, the city staff recom-
mended the purchase of a $130,000 software
package to regulate hourly employees' time
clock practices. I was told the manufacturer
presented a very compelling case for the pur-
chase, promising that the system will pay for
itself in one year. I for one can't wait to see our
taxes drop $260,000 next year as we benefit
from this wonderful system. I won't hold my
breath on those savings, though.
Call me old-fashioned, but whatever hap-

multiple areas of legislation deal-
ing with issues that affect our
communities. Among those issues
this year is legislation that
addresses newspaper advertise-
ments and notices, and how such
notices are to be made public and
the frequency in which they must
appear. Specifically, should public
notices no longer be required to
be posted on the traditional print-
ed page? Further, should public
notices now only appear on the
Intei-net And,who should control
.the dissemirnation and archiving of,;
those notices government or the
private sector?
Two weeks go my committee
heard its first bill on this subject
when Sen. Ronda Storms present-
ed Senate bill 2292 entitled
"Advertisements & Notices by
Governmental Entities" that would
allow local governments to place
legally required public notices on
a government sponsored website
as opposed to printing them in
local newspapers. The measure
was temporarily passed (or post-
poned).
My recommendation for this
bill and six other similar bills mov-
ing in the Legislature this year is
to hold all legislation dealing with
public notice requirements until,
an interim study may be conduct-
ed this summer. Several factors
must be addressed if we are to
remain a "government in the sun-
shine" in providing transparency
and accessibility to public informa-
tion.

Floridians have a right to know
how their local, state and federal
entities are spending their hard-
earned tax dollars, as well as a
right to know about the govern-
mental decisions which affect
their daily lives. Independent pub-
lic notice and your right to due
process of law remains one of our
most important checks and bal-
ances.
Public notices of government
actions originated in the 17th cen-
tury, and shortly after the adop-.
tion of the Constitution, the First
Congress codified public notices
by requiring the secretary of state


to publish all bills, orders, resolu-
tions and congressional votes in at
least three publicly available news-
papers.
Examples today of public,
notice include information on com-
munity changes, fraud prevention
and debt collection and monitor-
ing government transactions. The
Printed page has served as the
trusted source for community
information, and in particular, the
publishing of notices of govern-
ment action.
I have always believed in the
principle that you, as citizens,

cerned that if we place this infor-
mation solely on a government-
sponsored web site, what measure
will be in place to prevent the shut-
down of electronic media access
for convenience's sake or when
controversial hearings and issues
arise.
Media suppression and censor-
ship have long been a source of
controversy in countries around i
the globe. Even if you disagree
with media coverages and/or edi-
torial comments (which I often
do) it is a small sacrifice consider-
ing the possible alternative gov-
' ernment-contrulled and biased
media and news.
Recent research shows close to
60 percent of Florida seniors do
not have access to the Internet. In
addition, an average of 40 percent
of all Hispanics and African-
Americans do not use the Internet
at all.
So it is reasonable and right -
to continue to provide a printed
record for those without access to
the Internet as well as an electron-
ic record for those who have
access. To replace one system of
public notice with another will
deny millions the opportunity to
keep up with important informa-
tion.
Combining Florida's tradition
of open government for public
inspection with new technologies

My point is that our priorities are all back-

on a time management system but not pave
streets? The last infrastructure this city funded
on its own was, onFirst Avenue, providing
drainage and surfacing in 2004. Since then we
have managed to hire about 15 new employ-
ees, hire a cleaning service to keep public rest-
rooms clean (because staff could not do the
job), buy two new cars for our city manager
and give department heads an average salary
increase of 6.5 percent a year.
For good measure, the city manager came
up with a management leave policy, giving
department heads more time off just in case
they work too hard. As if a minimum three
weeks vacation (most get four or more weeks),
11 paid holidays and four days in lieu of comp
time was not enough.
This is not to pick on department heads.
Most of them work hard to provide service
that we need in out city. However, citizens
should not work and pay taxes for the benefit
of government and its employees, but the gov-
ernment and its employees should work for
the benefit of the citizens. We can't even have
our roads resurfaced when the present a haz-
ard to our safety,, but we have money to buy

Raccoons have a beer fest


A after all my years of
camping in national
and state parks
around the country,
I thought I knew how to pro-
tect myself from the depreda-
tions of raccoons. These little
rascals, with their dexterous
hand-like paws and nimble
brains, have for decades
honed their knowledge and
skills about interacting with
man, too. In my most recent
encounter with raccoons, the
score was raccoons, 6,
humans 0, and this was right
in my own backyard, at Fort
Clinch State Park.
To celebrate spring, a
group of gal
friends and I
decided to
book a
campsite at
Fort Clinch
State Park to
spend the
night. Sure,
we were just
Wl minutes

fortable
Pat beds, but
Foster- Turley what the
heck? A
night under the canopy of live
oaks, in a secure tent couldn't
be that bad. could it?
We chose a perfect day for
this adventure. The
Confederate reenactment was
going on at the fort that
Saturday, and we spent a few
afternoon hours pretending
we were in Civil War times,
playfully~r harassing the sol-
diers, donning our "washer-
woman" hats, trying out the
old-fashioned dental chair-that
resembled a medieval torture


device and generally getting
in the spirit of things.
Along the walk to the fort
from the campground we also
encountered a beautiful black
snake. At least some of us did.
At the end of the line, I didn't
manage to see it, although
among all the gals I was the
only one delighted about the
encounter. We hiked the
trails, walked along the river
beach admiring the old ballast
stones at the archaeological
-site and generally enjoyed the
west side of the park, shel-
tered from the cold northeast
wind that was blowing.
But all this exploring was
just our warmup act. Our real
purpose in camping, as every
good old Girl Scout knows, is
preparing food over a camp-
fire. And for this, believe me,
we brought the goods. Dinner
was a grand matter, of hot
dogs, sauerkraut, chili, alu-
minum foil-wrapped vegetable
medley and twice-baked pota-
toes, homemade deserts, etc.
Yes, we even had 'smores.

guished the campfire we had
our first raccoon encounter.
In an unexpected foray, a
group of raccoons-arrived and
one jumped on our table and
made away with a
Tupperware container of
Rhonda's homemade choco-
late "tree bark." A squabble
ensued, off in the woods, as
the group of raccoons divided
.their trophy, not very
amenably.
So we were definitely fore-
warned about raccoons at the
campsite. Like all savvy
campers, before we settled
down for the night we put all
the food away. At Rhonda's
suggestion we lifted the heavy
picnic table and set the bench
part of it over,our large cooler
stocked with breakfast items.
It took four of us to lift the
table, so we were confident
that the raccoons could not
move it. The rest of the food
we put in our cars and kept
nothing potentially attractive
to a raccoon in our tents. We
were "raccoon safe."
Or so- we thought. We


woke up in the morning to
find out how unsuccessful we
were. Did you know that rac-
coons like to drink beer right
from unopened cans? Well, we
didn't. The only item left out-
side our cars was a cooler
with ice, six cold cans of beer
and a few cans of soda. The
raccoons deftly lifted the lid to
the cooler, grabbed each beer
can but not the sodas and
carefully chewed a hole in the
aluminum near the top. All
the beer cans had a similar
hole, and were empty. No
smell of beer pervaded the
campsite so nothing was
spilled. The raccoons must
have drunk the beer. I sure
wish I had seen them lifting
their brews with their dainty
little paws. If Budweiser is
looking for a new beer com-
mercial, we've got just the
thing!
The raccoons, maybe a bit
tipsy by now, also left their
paw prints all over our parked
car, which they must have
investigated seeking food, or,
who knows, maybe more
beer. This explained Joann's
spooky dreams as she slept in
her car and felt like some,
dark shape was looming over
her windshield.
I've got plenty of raccoons
in my own backyard, and you
probably do too. But these
backyard raccoons are sim-
pletons compared to the tribe
at Fort Clinch. Maybe it's the
alcohol in their diet that stim-
ulates their brain cells, who
knows? All I know is, next.
time I camp at Fort Clinch I'll
put the beer in the car too!

'Help save birds


by watching birds'


"Since the birth of our
nation, four American bird
species have gone extinct, in-
cluding the passenger pigeon,
once the world's most abun-
dant bird. At least 10 more
species are possibly extinct."
This sad news about trou-
' bled ecosystems in the United
States comes from the recent-
ly released "State of the Birds
Report, 2009," commissioned
by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service.
The report laces its bad
news about drastic losses of
migratory birds with the opti-
mistic and realistic view that
individuals, businesses, asso-
ciations' and government agen-
cies can reverse this trend by
working together. In fact, there
are probably 100 things people
can do to help birds.
"Each time a person goes
birding, his or her activities
fuel a local economy," said
Mark Kiser, a wildlife biolo-
gist'and birding trail coordi-
nator for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection is
another government agency
organizing multiple approach-
- es to return bird populations to
sustainable levels. The DEP's'
100 Ways in 100 Days initia-
tive encourages all Floridians
to explore the natural, cultur-
al and historical treasures in
the state.
In its spirit of rediscover-
ing Florida and the new Get
Outdoors Florida! campaign,
of which the FWC is a part-
ner, parents are encouraged


to lure their children away
from the TV and computer.
One option that can help
mankind's feathered friends is
to take a bird book and a pair
of binoculars or camera and
head off to a park or one of
the birding trail sites. MyFWC.
corn's "Quick Clicks" will point
people where they want to go.
"You can help save birds
by watching birds," Kiser said.
SThe average population for
te common birds in steepest
decline has fallen 68 percent,
from 17.6 million to 5.35 mil-
lion,", according to the State of
the Birds Report, 2009. "Some
species have nose-dived as
much as 80 percent, and all 20
birds included in the report
have lost at least 50 percent of
their population" in just the
past 40 years.
,Here's what you can do:
Be beach stewards. Safe-
guard nesting areas from peo-
ple.
Monitor backyard birds
at feeders as part of Cornell
University's Project Feeder
Watch.
Volunteer to remove
exotic plants or build nest
boxes at a local park.
Report bird-band num-
bers to the. U.S. Geological
Survey Patuxent Wildlife
Research Center.
Volunteer to assist with a
census at a wildlife refuge.
Sign up for a birdwalk to
learn more about birds and
the perils of being a bird.
"Birding and wildlife view-
ing support an estimated
34,683 jobs in Florida," Kiser
said.

Don't be surprised if you see
hundreds of motorcycles con-
verging on the Isle of Eight
Flags Shopping Center parking
lot on 14th Street at noon on
Saturday.
The bikers will all be par-
ticipating in a benefit ride for
local Harley enthusiast Ed Hall,
who is battling bone cancer.,
Following retirement four
years ago after 41 years with
CSX Railroad, Wall became a
familiar figure at Amelia Island
Coffee & Ice Cream on Centre
Street, where he enjoyed sit-
ting outside, mingling with
locals and tourists, and hang-
ing out with his buddies in the
Christian motorcycle group,
Sons of Thunder.
"I really enjoyed riding with
the Sons of Thunder. They
renewed my love and faith in
God."
The people Wall met over
coffee eventually became good
friends.
Fellow motorcycle enthusi-
ast Pastor Roy Helnick said, "I
know Wolf is a good man. He
loves the Lord. He's very gen-
erous and in my opinion, he'd
give you the shirt off his back
if you asked him."
"For the past four years that
I've known Wolf, he's been sit-
ting in front of the Amelia Island
Coffee phop, drinking a cup of
joe and greeting everyone that
walked by," said another coffee
house friend and motorcyclist,
Mark Leaptrot.
"I had a lady call me the
other day, asking about what
had happened to the Wolfman.
She said she was from out of
town but every time she would
come down to visit, she would
run into Wolf. He may not have
remenibered their names, but
he would recognize their face
and greet them like they were
old friends."
Diagnosed with cancer in
February, Wall said, "I would
just like to urge people not to
smoke! My cancer came from
bladder cancer that is found in
smokers. It has spread to the
bones, lungs and liver."
Wall has been overwhelmed
with the outpouring of support
from the community as the ben-
efit motorcycle ride was organ-
ized.

"He's the type of charismatic person that everyone
enjoys talking to and I don't think he's ever met anyone
he didn't like," said Mark Leaptrot of his friend Ed Wall,
who is battling cancer.


Mark Leaptrot and his wife,
Jenny, for organizing this ride in
my honor."
Now at home in hospice
care, the Virginia native has
time to cherish memories of
riding his beloved motorcycle.
"Like most teenage boys, I
loved speed and used to race
dirt bikes. I bought my first
'Harley in 2002. Nothing,else
sounds like a Harley. I looked at
other cycles but my wife insist-
ed that I buy a Harley because
I'd always wanted one and I
wouldn't be satisfied with any-
thing else."
Wall says riding his Harley
is his favorite leisure activity..
There is nothing to compare
with "the freedom and connec-
tion I feel with nature and God
when I'm riding. I also love
attending Bike Night at
Murray's Grille and having cof-
fee downtown. I love meeting
new people and making new


friends."
Asked how he came by his
nickname, The Wolfman, Wall
said, "I was a big outdoorsman
and hunter. My hair grayed
early in a V-shape. The last 25
years of my life, I became a con-
servationist. One of my favorite
charities was the return of the
wolves to Yellowstone Park."

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
suspicion of a crime, not guilty.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach
Police Department at 277-7342
or the Nassau County Sheriff's'
Office anonymously by calling

Impersonating
an officer
Fernandina Beach police
are working to get an arrest
warrant for a 27-year-old Yulee
man they believe robbed one
man and tried to rob another
while impersonating an under-
cover officer.
Fernandina Beach Police
Officer Jorge Hernandez said
in his report of the incident
that he was patrolling the park-
ing lot of. the Days Inn on
Sadler Road on April 11 when
he saw a man standing up
* against a vehicle with his legs
spread apart and his hands on
the roof of the vehicle, "typical
stand of an individual being
searched or detained 'by
(police)."
Hernandez asked the man
what he was doing, and the
man told him an undercover
officer had told him to stand
there and not move.
The undercover officer also
had taken his cell phone, car
key, driver's license and $130 in
cash.
The victim pointed out the'
man who claimed to be an
undercover officer to
Hernandez; Hernandez said he
called to the man several times,
identifying himself as an officer
with the Fernandina Beach


Police Department, but the
man did not respond.
Hernandez recognized the sus-
pect and ordered him to stop as
he fled the area on foot.
Hernandez tried, but was
unable to apprehend the sus-
pect.
When Hernandez returned
to the hotel, he spoke to anoth-
er man who said the suspect
knocked on the door to his
hotel room and, when he
answered, said, 'I am an under-
cover officer, you have under-
age girls in your room, but I
will not take you in if you give
up your alcohol.'
The second suspect did not
give anything up to the suspect
before he ran from the area.
According to police, both
victims agreed the suspect
Hernandez recognized the
man they spoke to, and police
are going to attempt to obtain
an arrest warrant for the man.
Human skull found
The discovery, by two
hunters, of what appeared to
be a human skull* and other
bones in the woods at the Deep
Creek Hunt Club in Bryceville
has instigated a recovery effort
by the Nassau County Sheriffs
Office, the Jacksonville
Medical Examiner's Office and
a professor of anthropology
from the Florida Gulf Coast
University. ,
The hunters contacted law
enforcement officers at about
7:30 a.m. on Friday when they
discovered the bones.
By Monday afternoon, the
recovery operation was still
ongoing and, in a written state-
ment, Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves asked any-
one with information about the
bones to contact the sheriff's
office at 225-0331 or First Coast
Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-

* tives and the state Department
of Children and Families are
investigating reports of
molestation of two students by
a staff member at the Nassau
Juvenile Residential Facility.
The staff member is alleged
to have touched two of the stu-
dents, both 16-year-old boys,
"in an inappropriate manner,"
according to a report from the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department.
According to police, each
student's verbal recount of the
incidents matched their writ-
ten statements. One student
told police that the staff mem-
ber had "touched him on the
hips like one would touch a
girl" several times, and that.
once he had a puzzle tucked
into his shirt and pants, and
the suspect removed the puzzle
while putting his hands
"uncomfortably close to (the
victim's) genitalia." #
The students both claimed
the staff member had grasped
them on the hips from behind,
and once "pushed (them)
together like dolls."
One of the students said he
was drawing in his room when
the staff member put his hand
in his pants and "while grab-
bing his crotch, stated some-
thing to the effect of 'draw
this.'"
The suspect was not imme-
diately available to be inter-
viewed because he was not at
the school that day. The inves-
tigation is ongoing.

Detective always in the fast lane


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Detective Al Smith, who
works in the Special Enfor-
cement Unit with the Fernan-
dina Beach Police Department,
has an inherently calm
demeanor that belies any indi-
cation he might be an adrena-
line junkie.
But in his spare time, the 38-
year-old father of two isn't play-
ing golf or fishing he's racing
his motorcycle on tracks from
Florida to Virginia, or he's flying
airplanes.
He says he's "always had a
fascination with going fast."
"I like to ride motorcycles
fast, and I like to fly planes fast,"
he said. z
Smith said he's been riding
motorcycles since the age of
eight, but he started racing
almost exactly a year ago, and
he's hooked.
Now, he doesn't drive his
bike on the street at all "It's
strictly for racing," he says.
He regularly practices on
open-track days at,a motorcycle
track in Jennings, about two
hours away, and it is paying off.
Earlier this year, Smith placed
third at the Daytona Interna-'
tional Speedway.
"That was the first time I've
actually placed, so things are
looking better for me this year,"
he said, laughing.'
Because he felt that "sports
bikes were meant to be driven
on a racetrack," Smith started
taking his bike to the track in
Jennings just to ride. But as
more and more people sug:
gested.he should race, he decid-
ed to give it a shot.
"I kind of fell in love with it,"
he said:

-"II 11 II l'
Fernandina Beach Police Detective Al Smith practices-
on a motorcycle track in Jennings.


Smith's family gets in on the
action as well. He said his wife,
Penny, and their 5-year-old
daughter, Megan, are his
biggest fans. His 17-year-old
son, Cory, lives with his moth-
er in Tampa, but Smith said he
makes it to a lot of the races as
well, and he said he's shown an
interest in taking up racing as
well.
Smith admits the hobby is
dangerous.
"Obviously if you race and
ride fast, it's dangerous,' he
said. "You have to have the
proper safety equipment."
He maintains that riding on
the track is actually safer than
riding a motorcycle on the open
road.


"What makes it safe is that
there's nothing out there to hit,"
he said. "If you wreck, it's more
like you're just sliding and com-
ing to a stop."
Has he experienced that
first-hand?
"Not yet, fortunately," he
said.
His family doesn't worry, he
said. Or at least if his wife gets
nervous, she's good at hiding it,
he said, laughing.
But then long before Smith
took up racing motorcycles, he
was flying planes and taking the
family along for that adventure
as well.
Smith got his pilot's license
in 1995. He said it was some-
thing he'd always wanted to do,


and his wife encouraged him to
go for it. And in return, he's
rewarded her with flights to
places like the Bahamas, Key
West and even up to New
Hampshire one of the most
fascinating flights he's ever
taken.
Smith said on the return trip
from New Hampshire, where
he's originally from, he flew
over New York City and was
able to take aerial photos of
landmarks, including the World
Trade Center.
"Of course now I will cherish
those pictures forever," he said.
Smith says he's never had a
scary moment while flying -
he's got no fear of it and nei-
ther do his children. Some-
times, he said, he picks up his
older son in Tampa for visits in
the plane he has access to as a
member of the Atlantic Flying
Club. Lately, though, he's been
flying less and racing more.
"I have to focus my finances
on either one hobby or the
other," he said.
Smith, who moved to
Nassau County from New
Hampshire when he was a
teenager, has been with the
local police department for 17
years. It wasn't his need for
speed that drew him to a career
in law enforcement.
"Honestly, the thing I like
most about police work is that
you get to meet so many people
you probably wouldn't meet oth-
erwise," he said.

Shoppers pinching pennies


AMANDA TEW
For the News-Leader

With the current condition
of the economy, consumers
are shopping less and staying
at home more with hopes of
pinching a few pennies. Many
people are putting off pur-
chases of new items like cloth-
ing as the economy gets
tighter.
But this is not the way it
has to be.
There are plenty of con-
signment clothing stores in
Fernandina Beach that allow
for an excellent shopping
experience while giving the
dollar a chance to stretch fur-
ther. These stores specialize
in everything from children's
clothing to gently used furni-
ture.
"Why pay full price if you
don't have to?" said Jocelyn
Scrudato, a sales associate at
The Purple Dove Resale
Center, 1004 S. 14th St.
Various stores in town
offer used adult clothing at
affordable prices. Among
them is Fifi's Fine Resale
Apparel, 1853 S. Eighth St.
Fifi's specializes in every-
thing from women's to men's


'Why payfullprice ifyou don't have to?'

clothing along with a variety
of accessories, which include
shoes, hats and even some
designer purses, all while pre-
senting the customer with
excellent service.
"We have great customer
service and we offer a unique
shopping experience," said
Jessica Miller, proprietor of
Fifi's. "You really-can get stuff
cheap at resale price."
At Fifi's a used Louis
Vuitton jean backpack can be
purchased for just over $800
with the paperwork intact
along with the original receipt
that displays a price of just
over $1,500. The store also
has brands such as Coach and
Prada sitting on its shelves,
ready to be purchased.
'You just have to be cre-
ative about how to make that
dollar stretch further," Miller
said.
One way for parents with
young children to be creative
about stretching 'their dollar is


to visit children's consign-
ment shops such as Cradle to
Crayons, 432 South Eighth St
Parents can find a wide
assortment of used clothing
for their young children along
with various toys. And when
children outgrow this cloth-
ing, the used merchandise
can be consigned right back
to the store, allowing parents
to purchase larger clothing or
walk out of the story with
cash in their pockets.
Consignment allows the
consumer to give the mer-
chandise to a secondhand
store that will sale it and give
the consumer a previously
agreed upon percentage of
the profit.
Consumers can also make
their dollar stretch a little fur-
ther while shopping for furni-
ture by visiting stores like.
Amelia's Attic, which special-
izes in new and consignment
furniture.
"I believe people are com-


ing here first and trying to
find stuff," said Sylvia Poole
Gedeon, co-owner of Amelia's
Attic. "You never know what
you are going to find."
Amelia's Attic offers a wide
variety of consigned furniture
with an eclectic range of
styles.
Another store where peo-
ple can find both used clothes
and furniture, all while donat-
ing to a good cause, is the
Purple Dove Resale Center.
The store provides a large
selection of clothing, furniture
and quite a few shelves of
books.
"You can shop and do a
good deed all in one," sales
associate Scrudato said.
All the merchandise is
donated to the store by the
community and the profits are
in turned donated back to
Micah's place, a certified
domestic violence center serv-
ing Nassau County.
"We are so well supported
from the community," said
Scrudato, "and we have fabu-
lous volunteers, we wouldn't
be here if it wasn't for them."

ism student at the University of
North Florida.

Jennifer Pelham, right, going for a rebound for the Yulee Lady Hornets and on campus Monday, left, is Nassau County's most valuable girls bas-
ketball player for the 2008-9 seaspn.-The 6-foot-2 forward received a full scholarship to play basketball at the University of North Florida. The -
2008-9 all-Nassau County girls basketball team 'appears on 2B.



Pelham heads all-county girls hoops team


BETH JONES
News-Leader

At 6-foot-2, Jennifer Pelham
has been an intimidating inside
force for the Yulee High School
I ady Hornet, I he last two sea-
sons. .
"It started when I got into,
middle school, I guess. That's.
when I started becoming taller
than everybody else," Pelham
laughs.
"She's always been taller
than the other kids," said her
father, Darrin Pelham. "She
was real timid for a long, long
time because of her size. She
would kind of stay back a bit
because she didn't want to hurt -
kids."
The senior forward/center
for Yulee High School's girls
basketball team first picked up
a basketball after-moving from
Germany in elementary school.
She tried other sports, but bas-
ketball became her fort e.
"My dad put me into all
kinds of sports," Pelham said.
"When I got into high school, I
decided to choose one sport
and that was basketball."
This past season, Pelham
averaged 16.7 rebounds and
15.3 points for Yulee. She's
Nassau County's most valuable
player on the all-county girls
basketball team.
Pelham said a highlight of
her senior season was beating
Baldwin iri the district tourna-
ment.
"They beat us twice in a
row," she said. "When it came
district, we just came out of
nowhere and beat them. It was
great because everybody was
so confident Nobody was going
to beat us three times in a row."
Pelham transferred from
Savannah, Ga., her junior year.


She immediately impacted the
Yulee girls basketball team.
'"They had-to get used to the
fact Lhey had a tall.girl on the
team now," she said. "That was
one of the first .things we
worked-onr-the first season I
was here, trying to get the ball
inside since that's my specialty."
Her specially earned her a
full ride to the University of
North Florida. She signed a
national letter of intent to play
for the Lady Ospreys Nov. 14
and became the new high
school's first recipient of a
Division I college scholarship.
"I am very happy she's an
Osprey," said Mary Tappmeyer,
UNF head women's basketball
coach. "We are very pleased
when the addition of Jennifer
Pelham to our program. She
has a tremendous amount of
upside and her game will real-
ly blossom -in college.
"She will be a definite low-
post scoring presence. She has
very good defensive instincts
and very good mobility for her
size."
Pelhaim's size was also a wel-
come addition to the Lady
Hornet volleyball team.
' "Coach (Donna) Jackson
called me up one day, I guess
when she heard about my
height," Pelham said. "She said,
'I think you would be a good
volleyball player. Come out to
practice one day over the sum-
mer.'"
Pelham agreed, but warned
Jackson, "I just don't know how
to play." .
Not a problem.,
"She basically related every-
thing to basketball and I got
the hang of it pretty quick,"
Pelham said. .
Pelham said she had no idea
when she first picked up that


basketball in second grade she
would one day be playing col-
lege ball.
"I had no clue that I was
going to do this," she said,
Pelham will be closing one
chapter of her life and begin-
ning a new one next month.
YHS holds commencement cer-
emonies May 29 for its gradu-
ates at UNF, a fitting finish for
Pelham's high school career.
She's an honor student and
senior representative in student
government She plans to study
psychology, but one of the first
classes she plans to sign up for
is German. She'll be at another
advantage since she speaks the
language fluently.
Pelham said her height has
never posed any problems for
her when it comes to sports.-
"Pants. That's my main
problem," she laughs.
Pelham may be the. only
senior on the all-county girls
basketball team, but she isn't
the only Lady Hornet on the
squad.. Teammate Quanisha
Garrett, a junior, is also an hon-
oree. She averaged 13.7 points
for Yulee last season.
Hilliard also has a pair of
players on the team. Brianti
Saunders, just an eighth grad-
er, led the Lady Flashes with
15.3 points per'game. She also
averaged 6.4 rebounds, "5.4
steals and 2.6 assists this past
season.
Jewel Barron is just a fresh-
man. She averaged 10.3 points,
6 rebounds and 2.3 steals for
Hilliard.
Fernandina Beach is repre-
sented by Whitney Small, a jun-
ior who averaged 10.6 points,
4.6 rebounds and 3 steals for
the Lady Pirates. She also shot
75 percent from the free-throw
line.


Jennifer Pelham blocks a shot during her junior season
with the Yulee Lady Hornets.

School, rounds out the team.-
She averaged 7.1 points and 3.2
assists for the Lady Warriors.

Wildcats

win 25th

Diamond

Classic

BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Baker County Wild-
cats beat Harmony Saturday
in.the championship game
of the 25th annual Diamond
Classic hosted by Fernan-
dina Beach High School.
"Baker County put togeth-
er three great games, scoring
40 runs with 45 hits while
their pitching only allowed
three runs," said Ken Roland,
head baseball coach at
FBHS. "Senior catcher Cory
Elasik of Baker County was
selected the tournament
MVP."
The FBHS Pirates opened
April 8 with a 3-2 victory over
Coconut Creek.
"We left some run scor-
ing opportunities out there,"
Roland said.
FBHS had back-to-back
triples in the bottom of the-
sixth inning to secure the
win. Justin Crews tripled and
then scored the game win-
ner on a Trent Luman triple.
Bradley Manning started
on the mound and Tyler
Thornton got the win.
The Pirates were victims
of Baker County in the semi-
final Friday. FBHS fell 15-0.
"We haven't be beaten
that badly in a long time,"
Roland said. 'They played
extremely well."
The Pirates' three pitch-
ers walked seven and hit two.
"It wasn't a good night in
any phase of the game,"
Roland said. "We had just two
hits.
"It was a tight game early.
It just got .out. of hand. We
gave up a six-run fourth
inning."
The Pirates lost 4-0 to
Fleming Island Saturday.
"(Freshman pitcher) Tim-
my Roszell did an OK job on
the 'mound," Roland said.
'We didn't give him any run
support. They scattered hits
at good times, dropped a run
in here or there and we just
couldn't answer back."
Robert Martin, Luman
and Crews had the only three
hits for FBHS, all singles.
"We have been struggling
offensively lately," Roland
said. "We have left a lot of
runners on base and have
not been hitting enough balls
hard to create run-scoring
opportunities. Hopefully we
will get hot during the next
two weeks leading into the
postseason."
Roland said the tourna-
ment was a success.
"Fans commented on this
being the best high school
invitational tournament in the
state," Roland said. "I give
credit to all of the volunteers
who spend a great deal of
time preparing the field and
working the concession
stand to provide a great base-
ball experience for our kids."
The Pirates (11-9) were
scheduled to play at Baldwin
Tuesday.
"We need that one to stay
in the top of the (district)
bracket," Roland said.
The Pirates (4-2) are tied
for second with West Nassau.


Mostyoung players need time to grow into program


Another off-season, another
transfer from the University of
Florida basketball team. Allan
Chaney, who played about as much
as any freshman should expect to
play despite a nagging foot injury
last season, has decided to leave the
Gators, citing an "unwanted" feeling
in Gainesville.
"I would go into (UF coach Billy
Donovan's) office and just ask him,
'Coach, I just want to play a little
more.' I thought that I deserved it at
some point, but he would just come
off at me saying I'm selfish, which I
wasn't trying to be," Chaney told
Edward Aschoff, a correspondent to
the Gainesville Sun.
While it's understandable and
even commendable for a freshman
to display such confidence in his
skills, for Chaney to outwardly ques-
tion Donovan on his ability to assess
the readiness of his own team comes


off as plain and
simple arrogance
and, yes, selfish-
ness.
Had Chaney, or
any of the nine
transfers from
Florida's basketball
team over the last
six years,been will-
ing to bide his time
SPORTS and grow into the
program, odds are
TALK he and Florida
would have ulti-
JOHN L lately been better
CRAWFORD for it.
...- As it stands,
Chaney will have to
start fresh at a school that I'm sure
he believes will cater to his every
whim.
And Florida will have to replace
him with a player who hopefully


understands that is not how it works
in big-time college basketball ...
Speaking of college basketball,
this year's Big Dance has to be con-
sidered one of the most anticlimactic
of all time. What really epitomized
the whole tournament to me was
CBS play-by-play announcer Jim
Nantz's predictable wrap-up state-
ment of, "Nothing could be finer ...
North Carolina is your national
champion." Wow! Talk about a lyri-
cal genius ... I
Spring football is set to culminate
in Gainesville with this weekend's
annual Orange and Blue spring
scrimmage. Replacing receivers
Percy Harvin and Louis Murphy of
last season's national championship
squad without missing a beat will be
a tall task and one that fans attend-
ing Saturday's game should not
expect to see immediately fulfilled.
While seniors David Nelson and


Carl Moore both have a chance to
fill a "Dallas Baker-type" role in next
year's receiving corps, neither
seems to possess the down-the-field
threat both Harvin and Murphy had.
Factor in that speedster Riley
Cooper is concentrating on baseball
and Jeff Demps has split time
between football and track this
spring and one might not expect a
deep ball to be thrown on Saturday.
Truth be told, the arrival of fresh-
man Andre Debose, who many have
compared to Harvin, will undoubted-
ly have a strong impact on the
"stretchability" of Florida's passing
game next season. With all that said,
head coach Urban Meyer's likely top
priority this weekend will be for his
players to walk away from The
Swamp with no further injuries than
the toean has already incurred this
spring ...
Atlanta Braves fans might have a


reason to be excited again with the.
impressive early play of what
appears to be a feisty squad. The
Braves finally seem to have found an
answer in center field with rookie
Jordan Schafer, who homered in his
first Major League at-bat and has
already proven to be a tough out.
As of Sunday, Atlanta boasted
seven of 10 guys with batting aver-
ages of .300 or better and three bat-
ting over .400, including Schafer. If
the Braves still have their heads
above NL East water when veteran
pitcher Tim Hudson returns from
the disabled list in August, maybe
they can make a run. Just two series
into the season, however, is proba-
bly a bit too early to be talking about
that.

Verizon Heritage
Defending: ,Boo Weekley
Total Purse: $5,700,000
Yards: 6,973
Par: 71


SThe Verizon Heritage has been a
fixture of the PGA Tour since the
tournament first began in 1969.
Arnold Palmer won the first event
when it was known as the
Heritage Golf Classic. In 2006,


due to the merger of Verizon Communications and MCI, the PGA Tour
renamed the MCI Heritage to the Verizon Heritage. The person that is
considered the king at the Harbour Town Golf Links is Davis Love II. Love
III has been incredible in this event, winning it an amazing five times
(1987, 1991, 1992, 1998, 2003). Last year, Boo Weekley successfully
defended his title at Harbour Town, closing with an even-par 71 for a
three-stroke victory over Anthony Rim 'and Aaron Baddeley.

At what event did Phil Mickelson's first PGA Tour
victory occur and.what year?
a) U.S. Open, 1994
b) Safeway Classic, 1993 '
c) The Memorial, 1998
d) Northern Telecom Open, 1991
Answer: d) Northern Telecom Open, 1991.


/ Angel Cabrera became the only Tournament Results
active golfer alongside Tiger 1st: Angel Cabrera
/ Woods with Masters and U.S. Purse: $1,350,000
S Open titles after his playoff victo- T-2nd: Chad Campbell & Kenny Perry
ry in the Masters Tournament at Purse: $660,000
Augusta National Golf Club on 4th: Shingo Katayama
Sunday. Cabrera went into a Purse: $360,000
three-way playoff with Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell after Perry
bogeyed the final two holes in regulation. The 39-year-oldfrom Cordoba,
Argentina, won the season's first major tournament when the 48-year-old
Peny made another bogey on the second playoff hole. Campbell was eliminated on
the first playoff hole. Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods roared into contention but came
up short. Mickelson tied the tournament record with a 6-under 30 on the front nine.


S,, While we rarely see it happen from
a professional golfer, the shank is
San all too familiar shot in the arsenal
r H of the amateur golfer. The main
cause for the shank is that the club-
face remains open through impact.
I. P When we strike the ball, the hosel of
the club is what hits the ball. Consequently, the ball
shoots off at virtually a 90 degree angle to the tra-
jectory that we are expecting when we line up to hit
it. One of the easiest fixes to the problem is to posi-
tion the ball in the hosel of the-club and attempt to,
hit the ball with the toe of the club. What this
accomplishes is that. it makes you bring the club
back to the ball from the inside. The other bit of
advice is to make sure that your left forearm rotates
completely through impact. This makes sure the
club rotates all the way through after contact.


Last week, while John Daly remained on suspension from the PGA Tour, he was selling
"John Daly Merchandise", hats and shirts from a bus parked down the street from _
Augusta National. Only a few weeks from the end of his six-month suspension from the X 2N-,
PGA Tour and slimmer than he's been in years after surgery to shrink his stomach, Daly .-7.- N
kicked off what could be called his comeback tour at the Masters. The money he made from
selling his merchandise will help him stave off bankruptcy. The 40-plus pounds he's lost in the
last eight weeks will help his prodigious game get back under control. "I can't believe how much he's been
embraced this week," said Anna Cladakis, Daly's girlfriend. 'That, for me and for John, was important. It was
the icing on the cake. After you've been practicing and losing weight and for everybody to come back and
embrace him ... that really has helped John."

OUTDOORS


WEDNESDAY. APRIL 15.2009/NEWS-LEADER


Topwater action


gets a
"It was a crazy day of off-
shore fishing," Amelia
Island's Doug Gies remem-
bers. "After arriving at one of
our more popular red snapper
ledges, Jeff and Monica Stami
and I anchoring up over the
deep-water structure, we
began barbing cut Spanish
sardines and Boston macker-'
el to our terminal bottom fish-
ing tackle.
"As soon as our baits hit
the bottom, we began hook-
ing up to a big school of B-lin-
ers that were holding tight to
the deep ledge below."
The Northeast Florida
fishing party aboard the sport
fishing boat "Turn-3" arrived
at their targeted offshore
structure at 9 a.m. that morn-
ing, and for the next few .
hours of fishing, a giant
school of big king mackerel
began cutting off their
hooked snapper.
"Right away we began
hooking into a variety of bot-
tom game fish, where red
snapper headlined the menu,"
Gies said. "However, each
time we attempted to reel in
our catch, big kings were eat-
ing our hooked fish. You
could actually see several big
kings schooling down deep
under our boat and attacking
our hooked fish."
"We rigged bucktail jigs to
20-pound class kingfish rods
and used a 18-inch section of
40-pound seven strand
American Wire for a shock
leader," Gies said. "We could
actually see the kingfish
down deep under our boat in
the ultra-clear water as we
free-spooled our jigs down
deep to the forading big,
macks."
"We also began chumming
the kings up to the surface by
tossing small cut pieces of our
snapper baits off the transom
of our anchored fishing boat,"
Gies said. "That's when I cut
the jig off from my kingfish
leader and attached a


--


little '

MirrOlure
aTop Dog'
surface
plug."
With a
big school of
kingfish
feeding in
their chum
slick and just
. OUTDOORS off the tran-
i som of their
TerryLacoss kingfish
boat, Gies
cast his 'Top Dog" surface
plug just beyond the school of
.'hungry kings.
"I began working the cigar
shaped plug side to side in a
traditional 'walking the dog'
fashion when a giant of a
kingfish ate the plug," Gies
said. "I really thought a
Mayport jet had dropped a
bomb on the water, because
that's how that kingfish strike
sounded."
For the next 10 minutes; ,
Gies enjoyed the speedy runs
of his 42-pound king macker-
el.
"A 40-pound amberjack
and speedy bonito also slam
dunked my Top Dog" surface
plug after investigating our
chum slick," Gies remem-
bers. "However, that 42-pQund
-smoker was the highlight of
our offshore fishing trip to
one of my favorite Northeast
Florida fish havens, the Elton
Bottom."
During the same weekend,
redfish pro Bill Pittn an and
father Gary Pittman drove
from Yulee to Dunellen,
where giant Florida bass were
spawning in area phosphate
lakes.
"I was excited not only to
be fishing with my Dad, but
also to test my new lure on
largemouth bass," Bill
Pittman said. "I had designed
the surface buzzer for redfish,
but in all reality, knew that
largemouth bass would take
the plug as well."
Gary Pittman is a sea-


Scary

soned bass fisherman who
has caught trophy bass
weighing over 14 pounds and
is also a past winner of
Jacksonville's Wolfson's Bass
Tournament. Bill Pittman is a
seasoned redfish pro, having
teamed up with Jimmy Stubbs
to win the Fernandina Beach
IFA Redfish Tournament and
is also a past winner of the
Jacksonville Times-Union
Spot Tournament. Bill
Pittman is teaming up with
Jacksonville's Scott O'Brien
and will be competing in the
2009 ESPN Redfish Cup tour-
nament series.
"My dad likes to fish for
largemouth bass the tradition-
al way with spinner baits and
soft plastic lures," Bill Pittman
said. "We had located a nice
bass in the shallows and, after
.several casts without any
interests, I buzzed my 'Spot
Tail Special' lure right over
the head of that big bass.
That big bass charged my
lure, which resulted in a huge
surface strike. After a short.
but memorable fight, my Dad
took a couple of pictures of
the eight-pound bass before
reviving and releasing my
bass."
April and May are prime
months for taking both salt-
water and freshwater game
fish while working a variety of
floating plugs on the surface.
Some strikes often scare the
angler right out of their fish-
ing boots.
Some of the more popular
saltwater surface plugs
includeStorm's "Chug Bug,"
Heddon's "Zara Spook," the
MirrOlure 94-MR "Top Dog,"
the Rapala "Skitter Walk" and
the Sebile "Splasher-90."
If you really wish to drive
cobia, kingfish or freshwater
bass plumb crazy, cast an
Arbogast "ZL Jitterbug." This
famed freshwater big bass
lure also drives saltwater
game fish plumb crazy with
its slow "plop plop" action.

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

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.

FISHING 7RIP A SUCCESS


SUB.I-PIMI. )
sun~nirEn
On a sunny spring day in late March individuals from ARC/Nassau went for a fishing
trip as guests of Amelia Island Plantation. The week prior, the individuals waited
patiently while Pete Rawls cut bamboo from his yard to make their own fishing poles.
They carefully assembled each pole with fishing line, sinkers and bobbers to make
their fishing trip a success. Upon approaching the property, their excitement level was
over the top and they knew they would soon have a fish on their line because Rawls
had brought live worms to use for bait. They exited the van and found their place to sit
by the pond and wait for that big one to bite. There were many proud individuals and
many sad fish as almost everyone caught a fish. Each of their prize catches was thrown
back into the pond with a huge sigh of relief. After the morning of fishing, everyone sat
down to enjoy their own brown bag lunch. It was an exciting and exhausting day, but
one that will be remembered for many years to come ,thanks to Melony Austin of
Amelia Island Plantation and Rawls.

Katie Ride a classic win-win (and fun) event


It must be spring. Everything is
in bloom. The Big Guy and I dig
out all the garden tools needed
to try and control the new and
aggressive growth in our yard. Out
come the rakes, the clippers and the
trash bags we fill with trimmings.
Right there next to the tools of
spring are the bicycles, dusty from a
winter of disuse. There is an urgency
to dust off the old bikes my annual
commitment to the Katie Ride, an
event that captured my imagination.
from its first year in 1998.
The Big Guy and I like to bicycle.
Some of our best trips to new coun-
tries have been biking with groups.
So what better then to combine a
fundraising event with an opportuni-
ty to do something physical and


healthy? It is a clas-
sic win-win.
.. In 1998 Susan
and David Caples,
owners of Elizabeth
Pointe Lodge,
established a foun-
dation and its signa-
ture event, the
annual Katie Ride,
FROM both to honor their
THE daughter and cre-
PORCH ate increased ,
awareness of the
importance of
Dickie organ donation.
Anderson Their commitment
to organ donation
came the hard way. One of their
daughters, Katie, died in a tragic


automobile accident. Her organs
were used in transplants that saved
lives. Her parents became dedicated
to the promoting the importance of
organ donation.
The Katie Ride started as a
cycling event. Beginners and more
competitive riders find sponsors and
cycle for a cause. This year walkers
get to take part in the first Katie
Walk. Walkers can choose from a 5k
walk or a 10k walk through scenic
Fort Clinch. This first-time addition
will be in good hands with John
McBreaty. of the Amelia Runners as
"walk master."
The dollars raised are used in a
unique training program that is
offered to high school students, As
these youngsters approach getting


their first driver's license, they learn
that when they get their license they
will have the' opportunity to give the
gift of life by indicating they are will-
ing to be organ donors.
So our bicycles come out and my
friends get their annual request for
donations as I commit to the 30k
ride. Big Guy prefers to be coach
and patiently gets our bikes out,
checks the tires and off we go on our
neighborhood training rides. We
start with five miles and build up,
going round and round our neigh-
borhood waving to our neighbors.
There will be lots going on
Saturday, April 18, at the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center. The
DMV Flow and the Bloodmobile will
be there from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Nassau Physical Therapy's Jim and
Shay Marino are sponsoring children
ID kits. The first 50 kids are free (a
$10 value). Walk-ups are welcome.
On Saturday, April 18, look for
walkers and riders supporting a
good cause. Give them a friendly
honk or wave.
There is still time to support this
writer/rider. Send any donation in
my name to: Vicki Vojtech, Katie
Ride for Life, 98 S. Fletcher Ave.,
Amelia Island, FL 32034, or call 491-
0811. For more information visit

comments. Books are available at

Force chaplain in Afghanistan who was lamenting the dire need for shoes by the
natives in his area. Once all the shoes are gathered they will be shipped by the Air
Force at Patrick AFB to the chaplain in Afghanistan.
