No swine flu


locally

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
No cases of swine flu have been
identified in Nassau County, health
authorities said Tuesday, but it may
just be a matter of time. The first case
in Florida may involve a tourist from
Mexico visiting a Disney park in
Orlando, but that has yet to be con-
firmed.
There are about 2,000 confirmed
cases of a new deadly flu virus in
Mexico, and at least 64 cases of a
milder form of the flu have now:been
confirmed in the United States. Those
are linked to people who crossed the
border from Mexico to California or
Texas, or to people in Kansas, Ohio
and New York who had recently vis-
ited Mexico City or one of the nation's
resorts, such as Cancun.


It seems inevitable that some
Floridian, perhaps even a Nassau
County resident, will have returned
from Cancun or some other Mexican
locale with the virus, or a tourist will
introduce it. State health officials are
taldng steps to prepare for a possi-
ble pandemic, and are urging doc-
tors to report any patients with flu
symptoms so' they can be tested.
"Tqhis is a situation where we must
all be on the alert," said Dr. Ana
Viamonte Ros, Florida's state surgeon
general, in a press release. "We have
increased our surveillance and we're
telling doctors that since the flu sea-
son is waning, if they see patients
with sudden onset high fever and a
cough or sore throat, they should col-
lect a specimen for testing."

County approves boat ramp no-wake zone

RMAN SMITH lawyer Molly Garrett, was originally are more complicated to be enforce- know our boats are getting all beat
News Leader proposed in March, but continued so able than might be expected," Hallman up."


The Nassau County Commission
passed an ordinance Monday creat-
ing a no-wake zone in the waters
around the North End Boat Ramp.
The zone, in which boaters will have
to cruise at idle speed, will extend 500
feet north and 500 feet south of the
boat ramp. However, some locals don't
think it goes far enough, and the com-
mission agreed to investigate extend-
ing the zone.
The no-wake ordinance,, largely
crafted by County Attorney's Office


the county could accurately map its
jurisdiction. Crafting the ordinance
was a challenge because of the boat
ramp's proximity to the state-con-
trolled Iitracoastal Waterway, which
the county can't regulate.
Enforcement could also be an
issue, County Attorney David Hallman
said Monday, since the county had to'
meet complicated state rules even to
establish a no-wake zone in local
waters.
"In the process of learning more
,about these no-wake ordinances, they


said. "Ms. Garrett has spent literally
hundreds of hours on this, many of
which have been spent getting assur-
ances from the state bureaucracy that
if we put these (no wake) signs up, the
ordinance will be enforceable."
*Hallman said he was satisfied the
ordinance as written is enforceable.
However, some Nassau County resi-
dents don't think it goes far enough.
"How come the county can't come
down 500 feet (further)?" said Janie
Thomas, executive director of the
Shrimp Producers Association. "I just


"This is the first effort to'regulate
outside the Intracoastal (Waterway) in
a county-owned area," Hallman said.
"...When you go beyond the area
immediately surrounding a boat ramp,
you have additional burdens of proof
that you're required to meet."
Commission Chair Barry Holloway
said that while it was technically pos-
sible to extend the zone, more evi-
dence of its necessity would be
required to meet state guidelines.

fireworks

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
There will be fireworks Friday night
at the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp
Festival but they will be launched
from Rayonier property instead of land
owned by shrimper David Cook, the
city commission decided at a special
meeting Friday.
The five-year, no-cost lease agree-
ment with Rayonier was approved 3-2
on Friday, with Commissioner Ron
Sapp and Mayor Bruce Malcolm voting
against. Sapp cited the fact Cook was
paid $2,000, which he was known to'
share with other shrimpers, especially
in a tough economy. Commissioner
Susan Steger said that is money the
city needs to save.
The vote Friday was an about-face
from three days earlier, when com-
missioners voted 4-1 against the lease
agreement with Rayonier. .
"Considering what the Cooks have
done for the city," said Commissioner
Eric Childers at the April 21 meeting,
"is it right to turn our collective backs
on a family that has done so much for
so long? I think not." But he changed
his vote on Frifay along with
Commissioner Ken Walker.
Steger, the sole commissioner who
voted in favor of the Rayonier agree-
ment at the first meeting, said it was a
difficult decision.
"I love shrimpers, and I love David
Cook," she said. "It seems to me if
we're going to save $2,000, it's the cit-
izens' money, so I'll support the
Rayonier property."
"David Cook is an active shrimper,"
said Sapp. "He's probably seen an
income decline ... this is a way we can
help the shrimpers in Fernandina
Beach, by compensating him in the
small way that we do."
Sapp even questioned the legality of
Friday's special meeting called by City
Manager Michael Czymbor, saying it
should have been called by a commis-
sioner who was present at the previous
meeting.
Czymbor said technically it was not
a decision that should have been decid-
ed by the city commission in the first
place.
In spite of Sapp's objections, com-
missioners voted to go on with the
meeting, with Sapp and Malcolm dis-
senting.
The Cook property is south of the
city marina. The Rayonier property is
further south and has more foliage,
but the city's fire officials and City
Marina Director Coleman Langshaw
said it is safer.
Fire Chief Daniel Hanes said at the
Friday meeting the city had been look-
ing at alternative fireworks sites for
some time because of "some issues
from the past." Hanes added that the
Cook site "never really met safety con-
siderations" of the National Fire
Protection Agency.
But both Sapp and resident Lynn
Williams voiced concerns about a

LIGHTHOUSE DAY


Be prepared
The State Surgeon General's Office provided these recommenda-
tions:
People with respiratory illness should stay home from work or
school to avoid spreading infections, including influenza, to others in the
community.
Avoid close contact with people who are coughing or otherwise
appear ill.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Wash hands frequently to lessen the spread of respiratory illness.
People experiencing cough, fever and fatigue, possibly along with
diarrhea and vomiting, should contact their physician.
::. If you think you have influehza, call your health care provider and
discuss whether you need to'be seen in their-dffice or emflrgency
department or stay home.
Florida is prepared for Influenza events:
Al state laboratories have the facilities to identify influenza samples.
The state has almost 100 sentinel physicians who report any
unusual influenza like activity to the state health department and the
federal CDC.
The state has the ability to monitor the sale of over the counter
drugs as an early warming sign. for increased Influenza activity.
Symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of the regular influenza
virus: headaches and body aches, coughing, sneezing, fever, chills and
sometimes vomiting and diarrhea. The difference is that this strain is
resistant to existing flu vaccines, and people may not have the same
natural immunities common to regular flu.

Minorities face barriers to healthcare


For the News-Leader


s Fernandina Health disparities (also called health-
d mill. care inequality) refer to gaps in the quali-
May 2, 1984 ty of health and health care across racial,
ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.
Specific examples of racial and ethnic
EARS AGO disparities in the U.S. is the cancer inci-
dence rate among African Americans,
ommy Seagraves, which is 10 percent higher than among
pointed chief of the whites. In addition, adult African

Health disparities can result from
three main areas:
Economic and social conditions
Barriers certain racial and ethnic
groups encounter when trying to enter
into the health care delivery system
The quality of health care different
ethnic and racial group receives.
Each of these reasons has been sug-
gested as possible causes for disparities
between racial and ethnic groups.
Reasons for disparities in access to health
care are many, but can include the follow-
ing:


-&f Lack of insur-
ance coverage.
Without health insur-
ance, patients are
more likely to post-
-. pone medical care,
... more likely to go with-
out needed medical
care, and more likely to go without pre-
scription medicines.
Lack of regular source of care.
Without access to a regular source of
care, patients have greater difficulty
obtaining care, fewer doctor visits, and
more difficulty obtaining prescription
drugs.
Lack of financial resources.
Although the lack of financial resources
is a barrier to health care access for many
Americans, the impact on access appears
to be greater for minority populations.
Legal barriers. Access to medical
care by low-income immigrant minorities
can be hindered by legal barriers to.pub-
lic insurance.
Structural barriers. Include poor
transportation, an inability to schedule
appointments quickly or during conven-
ient hours, and excessive time spent in
the waiting room.
Scarcity of providers. Access to

News-Leader

The North Florida Trans-
portation Planning Organi-
zation has released a draft of
* its Nassau County Transpor-
tation Improvement Plan for
fiscal years 2009-10 through
2013-14. The plan:calls for sev-
eral road projects in the next
five years, including more
than $62 million in improve-
ments to ALA.
The plan does not. repre-
sent a final decision on coun-
ty road projects, according to
TPO Long Range Planning
Manager Wanda Forrest.
Rather, it is an assessment of
needs. "It used to be (funding

Jim Corbett of the Nassau
Fertilizer and Oil Co. also
asked that the zone be extend-
ed south to his company's
waterfront. "We've had dam-
age done to vessels because of
these big; wakes, knocking,
them up against the dock," he
said. "... A no-wake zone would
be warranted for our area
because of the ongoing com-
mercial activities there."
Corbett also asked about
extending the zone into the
Intracoastal Waterway.
However, Hallman said only
the state has the power to reg-
ulate that area, and requires
comprehensive proof of need
before it will consider doing
so.
Holloway told Corbett that
the commission could investi-
gate extending the zone in
waters over which the county
has jurisdiction.
"I think you'll find that we'll
move forward on this to help
you out," he said. "Right now
let's get this done and-thei,

The commission passed

said. "Their intent is to main-

The North Florida TPO is
an independent agency

planning for all of Duval and
portions of Nassau, Clay and
St. Johns counties. Its draft

Some of the projects are
scheduled for funding as early

Streets, parking lots


closed for festival


The following street and
parking lot closures will be
effective this week in order to
set up for the Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival:
City Waterfront Parking
Lot B will be closed from mid-
night tonight until midnight
Sunday.
City Waterfront Parking
Lots A, C, and D and the
Fernandina Beach Branch
Library parking lot will be
closed to unauthorized vehicles
from midnight Thursday until
midnight Sunday.



FIREWORKS
Continued from 1A
woodchip pile located on the
Rayonier property, which they
said was a potential fire hazard.
Hanes conceded that, while
there was always the risk of
embers landing in other areas,
he still believed the Rayonier
site was safer.
"The fact is, (the Cook site)
has been within the safety rules
for 20 years," said Williams.
Former Fire Chief Danny
Leeper, who is now on the
Shrimp Festival committee, said
the festival "was under the
impression the city would move
the site to Rayonier."
"I'll stand by Dave Cook
every day," said Leeper, "but
for many years we looked for
alternative sites." Leeper added
that the city even tried launch-
ing fireworks from a barge at
one point, but abandoned the
idea after there was an accident.
He conceded, however, that the
city was never in any. serious
danger while the Cook site was
being used.
Langshaw said moving the
fireworks to the Rayonier site
was a "no-brainer" because the
city marina has "consistently
been getting fallout from the
Cook site every year."
"I thinks it's. very clearly
obvious to move the launch site
away from the marina," said
Langshaw.
The Shrimp Festival paid
Cook $2,000 to use his proper-
ty last year, according to festival
executive director Sandy Price.
Price said the main reason for

changing the venue now was
because they expected the
Rayonier property to be
approved by the city commis-
sion and had not budgeted for
the Cook site.
Moving the site to Rayonier
would also open up a city park-
ing lot for, more vendors, she
added. Price said the festival'
will continue to pay for the
pyrotechnic company that puts
on the display, at a cost of
around $10,000.
"Every year at the festival
we say we want an alternate
site," said Price. "There really
was not an alternative location
identified untilnow. ... It opens
up a lot of parking for our non-
profits and vendors:
"Mr. Cook has been a fabu-
lous supporter of the festival,"
she added. "It's more of an issue
of moving (the site) back, not so
close to the festival and park-

The'Rionier license agree-
ment will allow the city to use

Czymbor, the city previously
had an "equitable agreement"
with Cook, which included "a

FLU Continued from 1A
Viamonte Ros said the
Florida Department of Health
has a response plan and has
put it into play. "Our state lab-
oratories have the equipment
necessary and our personnel
are trained in identifying
influenza samples. We have
increased surveillance, alert-
ed doctors and are working
with our local health depart-
ments," she said.
Kim Geib, the Nassau
County Health Department's
director of disease control and
prevention services, said
Florida's status as a tourist des-
tination means the illness cer-
tainly could be brought into
the state. "We have a lot of trav-
elers. People come to Florida
for vacation," she said.
Geib said anyone who has
recently traveled to an area
with .a confirmed outbreak
should contact the health
department at the onset of flu-
like symptoms. "Flu happens,
and flu-like illnesses happen,
but what we want to know is if
people have traveled to those
areas and become ill within a
week of having traveled there,"
she said.
Doctors are also being
asked to report suspected
cases to. the health depart-
ment Geib said none had done
so as of Tuesday.
Although physicians are
not required to report uncon-
firmed-cases, Geib also asked
doctors to report seeing,
patients with flu-like symptoms
if those patients had traveled to
affected areas recently. "Flu
isn't reportable, but there is
also another public health rule
that if they see clusters of syn-
dromes, you're supposed to
report it. If you have a.single
case, it's sort of up to (the doc-
tor's) judgment," she said.
"We're asking them to report


because we are in an outbreak
situation in the United States.
It's more of a cooperative
request."
Geib is also concerned
about a possible backlash
against Hispanics, since the ill-
ness appears to have originat-
ed in Mexico. "I saw this a lot
with (the SARS virus), which
came from Asia," she said. "I
had a woman whose child sat
next to a Vietnamese child in
class and she wanted that child
removed from the class. One
of the things you always worry
about is, do you have a back-
lash against people of that ori-
gin?"
None of the cases of swine
flu confirmed in the U.S. have
been fatal, according to the
federal Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention. But
there are more than 150 prob-
able deaths linked to the flu
virus in Mexico. Confirmed
cases, but no fatalities, have
been reported in Canada,
Britain, Spain, Israel arid New
Zealand, and numerous other
countries are testing ill resi-
dents for the virus.
Swine influenza viruses are
not transmitted by food and a
person cannot get swine
influenza from eating pork
products. The infections
appear to spread from person
to person. The source of this
virus may be a pig farming
region near Veracruz, Mexico,
and the disease may have been
spread by a census worker
going door to door in that
region.
Viamonte Ros said Florida
is receiving frequent updates
from the CDC, and is working
with local health departments
to monitor the situation and
follow up on any suspected
cases. The CDC has created
a web page with information at
www.cdc.gov/swineflu.

BUSINESS


Delaware utility firm, FPU merge


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Florida Public Utilities and
Chesapeake Utilities Corp.
entered into a definitive merg-
er agreement last week, accoird-
ing to an FPU press release.
According to Mark
Cutshaw, general manager of
FPU Northeast Division, nego-
tiations between the two com-
panies have been going on "in
excess of a year."'
"It was a long-term process
that finally came to fruition,".
said Cutshaw.
The combined company will
offer electrical, natural gas and
propane services' to approxi-
mately 200,000 customers in
the Mid-Atlantic and Florida.


FPU will eventually become a
wholly owned subsidiary of
Dover, Delaware-based
Chesapeake Utilities once the
merger is finalized.
Central Florida Gas is also a
subsidiary of Chesapeake, and
as a result of the merger, the
company will service 34 coun-
ties throughout Florida. In
2008, Central Florida Gas
served about 16,800 customers
in 23 counties and FPU served
approximately 95,700 cus-
tomers in 19 counties. Of those,
eight counties are served by
both companies.
The merger is dependent
on approval by shareholders of
both companies, as well as
approvals or reviews by feder-
al and state regulatory author-


ities.
John Schimkaitas, president
and chief executive officer of
Chesapeake, would become
chairman and chief executive
officer, of FPU. Jack English,
FPU chairman, would be
retained as a consultant for up
to two years following the merg-
er. .
Cutshaw said he did not
believe the merger would have
any immediate effect on local
customers., he added that
Jacksonville Electric Authority
"is more in control of our des-
tiny as far as paying for fuel."
That's because FPU has a
long-term contract with JEA to
provide fuel through 2014. The
price is set to account for some
fluctuation in the market.


FPU and JEA previously had
a 10-year contract, signed in
1998, that fixed energy prices at
relatively low levels for
Fernandina Beach customers.
But that contract was tei-mi-
nated early, about the time
negotiations between FPU
and Chesapeake commenced,
and prices have increased
eight times since for local cus-
tomers.
The intent of terminating
the contract early was to get a
more favorable contract for the
longer term as energy com-
modity prices continued a dra-
matic increase; however, those
commodity prices oil, coal,
gas have generally declined
since the contract was renego-
tiated.


New energy conservation contest at FPU


Florida Public Utilities,
(FPU) has launched the sec-
ond installment of its Energy
Conservation Challenge.
Customers who would like to
enter the should visit the FPU
office located at 911 South
Eighth St. from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
through June 12.
FPU employees are avail-
able to register customers and
offer advice on reducing ener-
gy consumption. While supplies


last, customers will also receive
a free Energy Conservation
Challenge Starter Kit, which
includes a checklist of energy
efficiency tips, as well as sup-
plies to help customers begin
conserving energy.
The energy conservation
contest awards residential cus-
tomers for reducing energy
consumption by implementing
energy-efficient practices in
their homes. FPU will track cus-

Doomsayers aside,

Great Depression

was much worse


Hardly a few minutes or
maybe an hour goes by with-
out some commentator com-
paring today's financial trou-
bles with The Great
Depression.
The analogy is used freely
and recklessly, but most of all,
provocatively. And for this rea-
son, shamefully.
While there are similarities
between the two periods, the
differences dwarf them:
The unemployment rate
in the U.S. is currently 8 per-
cent; it'reached 33 percent
during the Depression.
Some 9,000 banks failed
during the Depression, begin-
ning with the stock market
crash of 1929 and the eventu-
al economic recovery in 193.8.
While several big-name finan-
cial institutions have tumbled,
the total number of bank fail-
ures so far is small.
Estimates are that some
$4-8 trillion are parked in
short-term vehicles right
now, waiting for an investment
opportunity. Hardly was that
proportion of money on the
sidelines back then. We've all
seen the grainy,, black-
and-white images of people
standing .in soup lines, or
lined up outside their banks to
fearfully withdraw their
money.
U.S. companies, for the
most part, are healthy right
now (excluding the financial
sector). They trimmed the
excesses in the'2002 reces-
sion and are doing more
now. Many of them are sitting
atop large cash positions.
The U.S. no longer oper-
ates in vacuum. While there
was global trade in the 1930s,
financial powerhouses such
as China, India and Brazil
were non-existent. These
emerging markets are quick-
ly becoming dominant econo-,
mies. Protectionism has been
replaced with capitalism and


1930s. In the
past year,
much has
been initiat-
ed by U.S.
and foreign
leaders,
u- such as eco-
Sm nomic stim-
Tulus pack-
STEVE S ages'g and
MA l 'e lower inter-
PUACE est rates and
guarantees
on banks
SteverNicklas and de-
.posits. This
should aid the recovery.
Some of the similarities
between the two periods are
striking. Home foreclosures
and layoffs are rising and asset
values are falling.
Too much risk was
employed in the financial mar-
kets. Consumers are now
pulling back on spending due
to uncertainty. And the U.S.
government has become a piv-
otal player in the financial mar-
ketplace.
Since the advent of busi-
ness television 20 years ago,
the media's role iil the finan-
cial arena has accelerated like
Dale Earnhardt charging to
the finish line. Televisions are
tuned into what CNBC and
Bloomberg and Fox have to
say.
Broadcast news runs 24
hours a day. That's a lot of cov-
erage. And a lot of space to
fill. Fear is the prevalent mind-
set today and broadcasters
are feeding it.
The same happened in
reverse back in the 1990s. We
can all recall the Internet
boom and the advent of
this endowed "Nei Econo-
my." Greed tookthe front seat
then.
Most of these doomsayers
have only read about the
Depression. They hardly are
old enough to have experi-

"The major thing (in the new
hospital rooms) is space," Mayo
said. "More room for family,
more room for all kinds of equip-
ment ... so many of our patients
are frail, falling is a problem so
we really encourage family to
stay here with them."
The 48 private rooms are
more than 300 square feet each,
and feature bathrooms and

more. Other features include
"positive pressure rooms* for
patients with airborne diseases,
a waiting room with comfort-
able, modern furniture and
calming, nature-inspired hues

Consumer confidence surges


University ofFlorida
GAINESVILLE Consumer
confidence among Floridians
surged in April amid indicators
of flattening housing price-s'
statewide and news that the
economy has not worsened, a
new University of Florida sur-
vey finds. .
"The size .of the increase
comes as somewhat of a sur-
prise," said Chris McCarty,
director of UF's Survey
Research Center at the Bureau,
of Economic and Business
Research.
While there are certainly
some signs that the-economy
may be improving, such as
housing prices possibly hit-,
ting their lowest point, many
negative conditions still exist,
such as continuing job losses,
, McCarty said. Florida's unem-
ployment rate of 9.7 percent
is the,highest since 1976, he
said.
"However, in balance, con-
sumers seem to have absorbed
most of the bad news and are at
least not seeing things getting
much worse," he said. "Perhaps
we really have seen the bottom
in terms of Florida consumer
confidence, which was back in
June of last year." In that month,
consumer confidence .sunk to
its lowest level in the index's
* 25-year history.
All five of the components
in April rose. The biggest jump
was in perceptions of whether
it is a good time to buy big-tick-
et items, such as cars and appli-
ances. Perceptions of U.S. eco-
nomic conditions over the next
year, perceptions of U.S. eco-
nomic conditions over the next
five years, perceptions of per-
sonal finances a year from now
and perceptions of personal
finances now compared with a
year ago all rose.
Despite these positive signs,
there is still enormous uncer-
tainty surrounding the eco-
nomic recovery, McCarty said.
The massive interventions
by the federal government, the
Federal Reserve and govern-
ments around the world have
had obvious effects, although
there is debate whether the
effects are all positive, McCarty
said. At the same time, stock
markets around the world
have experienced a recent rally
that some economic pundits
characterize as the beginnings
of a recovery but could turn
around quickly with bad news,
he said.
If housing prices nationally
begin to stabilize, this would
help establish the value of
some of the toxic assets held
by banks and at least indicate
how deeply the recession has
hurt the global economy, he
said.


"Consumers seem to char- magnitude, consumer confi-
acterize the economy by those dence may continue to improve

COMMUNITY THANKS


Kite Festival appreciation
We'd like to thank the community for the
success experienced at our Second Annual
Family Fun Kite Festival. Laughter and smil-
ing faces were the order of the day by the 300-
plus attendees at Main Beach. We had sever-
al volunteers we would like to acknowledge
publicly:
The city of Fernandina Beach Police
Department, as well as their auxiliary police
volunteers; the city of Fernandina Beach Parks
and Recreation Department, which provided
the patio room at the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center, for two interactive kite-
making workshops for children and members
of their families, Working together, creating
their own unique kites. The use of the facilities
at our beautiful Main Beach. The printing of fly-
ers which were distributed to all the childcare
centers, public and private schools in the Yulee
and Fernandina beach area."
Our co-sponsors, the Fernandina Beach
and Yulee Optimist Clubs, which provided the
major funding required to purchase materials,
making certain this event remained free of
any fees to everyone wishing to participate.
Our local Wal-Mart in Fernandina Beach,'the
Wal-Mart Supercenter in Yulee, and the Home
Depot Yulee also assisted in the purchase of
materIpls. A Loul ,.f 507- ltes were di-.inbuiri
to children and their families. This includes
the workshops, as well as children without
kites who made them at Mpin Beach on
March 28.
.We have very special thanks to convey to
members at four of our local child carqfacili-
ties who provided their trained, Department of
Children and Family screened, child care staff
as volunteers on both Saturdays, March 14
and 21, as well as the actual Kite Festival Day,

facilities or staff members by name:; Camp
Amelia, city of Fernandina Beach, Faye Owens,
three Saturdays, Felicia Giannini, one
Saturday; Early Impressions, Robin Owens,
one Saturday; Lamb Christian Preschool and
Day Care, Charlene Estes, three Saturdays, as

Without the organizations and individuals
mentioned, our goal of providing a relaxed,
conversation-loaded, hands-on, interactive,
fun experience for generations, young, old
and in between, to make incredibly, special
memories and connections, would not
have occurred. Fernandina Beach is a
"Special Place" where dreams can and do
come true.

VIEWPOINT/JACOUELYN WICKERS/ST. MICHAE'S ACADEMY


Ideals of th

I was walking across the crowded forest,
surrounded by anxious, yet fearful sol-
diers. It was quiet, except for the brakes
and crunches of leaves on the forest floor.
The sun was beaming down on our sweaty
backs covered in wool. With one loud bang,
everyone turned to the east to find one of our
men.falling to the ground like glass shattering
on a wooden floor. The first shot was made, the
war had begun!
My head circled with thoughts as gray and
blue uniforms keep passing, like birds scatter-
ing from the mouths of their predator. I stood
frozen as I watched the men who were like my
brothers dying a slow, painful death, falling to
the ground, leaving their loved ones, their
friends ... leaving the world. I had to be strong.
I had to protect my country. I wanted to be
brave, to show I had courage, but why was that
so hard? The thought of dying, never seeing
my wife or kids again just made me want to
cower'in the corner away from the pain and
suffering. Blood spattering from the oozing
wounds the sharp blade of the enemy's knives
left was covering the mossy green floor.
Seconds later a scream of agony escaped from
my chapped lips, leaving me to fall on' the
ground, which I knew would bring my death. I
lay there, while the excruciating pain crawled
up my helpless body. The bright yellow sun
started to blur in my weakening vision. Soon
the blackness dimmed my eyesight, traveling
from the first strand of my hair and spreading
down to the bottom of my toes. At that second,
blackness captured me.
My eyes fluttered open; The first sight that
accompanied my eyes was the light hanging
from the ceiling. My eyes became accustomed
to the bright light. Where was I? I thought curi-
ously. Is this heaven?
"Hello. Can you hear me, John?" a female's
soft voice asked. I followed the voice to my
right, turning my neck. I bit my lip to hold back
a painful cry. A piercing pain shot through my
neck like someone was vigorously stabbing it.
"Noi stay still. Don't try to move," the
woman commanded. "I'm Nurse Ann; you're in
hospital in Pennsylvania. I have sent word to


e Gettysbur
your wife and children to let
them know you are alive.
You broke your arm; your
neck is bruised pretty badly
too. You're a lucky man; the
bullet just missed your heart
and hit you near the collar-
.bone," she informed me. "Go
I back to bed, you need your
Vickers rest." And with that I drifted
off into a peaceful sleep.
Twomonths later
The pain from my wounds hurts occasional-
ly, but for the most part I was healed. I gotbup
preparing to go to the Gettysburg Me'morial
cemetery to hear the great Edward Everett
speak and a little treat from the president,
Abraham Lincoln.
By the time I got to the cemetery Edward
Everett's speech had already begun. The field
was filled with hundreds of open-eared listen-
ers. The crowd started to become restless as
Edwards' speech hit two hours. Finally, after
the long, informative speech was done, we
could hear what the leader of our country had
to say. President Lincoln walked onto the plat-
form, eyes cast downward, hands clasped
behind his back, and his sad expression deep-
ened. The crowd listened, awestruck, as he
spoke.
"Four score and seven years ago," he
began. Before the crowd knew it, he was done.
Lincoln had said more in two minutes than
Edward Everett did in two hours. I was amazed
as I walked past the crowd. Lincoln made it
clear to me that I had fought for a freedom that
needed to be given, a cause worth fighting for.
These bruises and wounds weren't worth
nothing. I had fought for what was right/The
world will forever remember the magnificent
words Lincoln spoke on this day. I am proud to
say I risked my life for my country. Not only
was this war worth fighting for, but for the rea-
son it was fought is much more striking. Each
and every human being is, and should be
promised equality. No matter where you're
from, or what race you are, you should be
treated withy respect and dignity. God created

all of us differently and we should and need to
respect that. These scars will always remind
me of those gruesome days. They will remind
me of the fallen soldiers ... they will remind me
of a purpose. Nov. 19, 1863, the most remem-
bered speech was given to the U.S., the
Gettysburg address.
145 years later
"Are you ready?" I asked the soldier who
was also my best friend.
"No, man, I'm so nervous. I don't want to
die," he said, voice shaking and tears rolling
down his eyes.
"We aren't going to die, OK; we are going
to live. Everything is going to be OK." As the
words swarmed out of my mouth not even I
could believe them. "Whatever happens, we
will stand united.'We will fight with our hearts
like my great-grandfather did in the American
Civil War years ago."
"Do you remember in the eighth grade,
how we all hated memorizing the Gettysburg
Address?" I said with a laugh behind my
words. "Now thinking back to that day and'
really taking in all those words Lincoln spoke,
they really mean a lot. We will leave here, fight
unto death for our freedom and for the liberty
and justice of all oppressed in Iraq. Democracy
will prevail as it did many years ago."
With those words, we sat up and ran out
into the dangerous world before us, leaving
everything we had behind us, leaving only
with each other. I looked up into the sky with
confidence as though my great-grandfather
was right beside me, and knowing God was
near.
Jacquelyn Wickers won first place for eighth
grade in an American History Essay Contest
sponsored by the Amelia Island Daughters of the
American Revolution.


Libertyand cultist
One of the most disturbing traits a population
can have is the tendency for cult behavior. It is
extremely dangerous and usually leads to behav-
ior without any rational thought behind it,
Religious extremism is usually the culprit and we
have seen the results of this kind of cult behav.
ior.
There are certain key words and'statements
by the followers and the leaders of such cull
movements. Usually the worship of the leader ol
the cult is a manifestation of this sickness. The
sickness becomes worse and the members of the
cult either withdraw from or attack thdi'se, that art
perceived to be outside of their realm. Any opin
ion against the leader of the group or the group
itself is regarded as an attack which should be
met with violence in words and or action. Those
who express opposition opinions in the worst
situations are beheaded and should be at least vil-
ified to the point of ruin.
We have seen the history of this behavior in
the world. Hitler's rise to power is the greatest
of these. The Taliban and Islamic extremism.
Jim Jones' Guyana Kool Aid camp. David Koresh
and Waco. All of them have one thing in common,
brutal insane behavior toward your fellow human
being
I see the pattern again with the worship by
mary of the current president. The writer ol
"First President of the Planet Earth" (April 22)
exhibits all the traits and language of a'cult. The
disturbing point is that his rhetoric is not uncom-
mon among the masses that support the presi-
dent.
I have no loyalties other than to this country
and the. liberty that it began for this world'.
Whether you are Republican or Democrat makes
no difference to me. If the current president can
increase our liberties then I support him, but to
have blind lust for a leader is purely insane,
We cannot lose objective reasoning on behalf
of worship 'towards any leader, religion or idol..
We have already lost the nation's most objec-
tive foundations when the American 1ress quit
being the fourth branch, of the United States
government. The press has become an advo-
cate for party politics and ideologies instead of
being the watchdog. We no longer have jour-
nalism, but press agents for Republican or
Democratic strategies that empathize for right-
wing .or left-wing ideologies. The press is dying
or dead because of their path.
We as Americans have been alone and embat-
tled since our inception. We have made mis-
takes and we have made glorious contributions.
The world still marvels at our experiment and
either hates us from envy or loves us and wants
a part of our liberty. Americans will live in a time
that will conduct itself in logical understanding
of our place on this planet or participate in the
chaos of cult behavior. Americans must look at
.each other as patriots 'responsible for the well
being of our country not the worship of a person,
party or your cultist beliefs.
Once an American with everything to lose,'
his life, his family and property, stood up against
the greatest of cults, the worship of a king and
said, "Give me liberty or give me death." A very

we believe in each other and our liberty.
Americans are not cultist; we are the people of
many colors, living free and fighting for each

Hazardous waste
The county and city held their one-day, house-
hold hazardous waste recycle event this past
Saturday. To take advantage of the opportunity
to dispose of qualifying materials, I scheduled my
activities to accommodate a trip to Home Depot
in compliance with the announced events.
I loaded my truck in Fernandina and depart-

ed for Home Depot around 12:30.1 I arrived there
at 1 p.m. and quickly detected the tent and asso-
ciated facilities in the parking lot. As I awaited my
turn to enter the designated dropoff area, I noted
stacks of boxes, a large bin full of computers
and similar electronics, several dumpsters and a
large panel truck. Familiar with such operations,
I was puzzled at the absence of any steel drums
or similar containers to receive hazardous waste.
When I finally was approached by the opera-
tors, I mentioned the lack of hazardous materi-
als and was promptly informed that they were
done with that part of the event! I checked my
watch and noted the time at 1:15 well short of
the 2 p.m. deadline. I was then informed that the
PR advised of the 8 a.m. to '2 p.m. period but
also advised that hazardous waste would be col-
lected until the truck was full. Subsequently, I
asked at what time was the truck filled? To which
I was informed that this occurred at 11:30 a.m.
two and half hours prior to the deadline!
This compelled me to ask if I would have to
wait another 12 months for the next opportuni-
ty and I was informed that the sponsors had
requested that the county schedule another col-
lection date. Upon my departure, I noted anoth-
er, full size, pick-up truck arriving with large
barrels of waste in its bed. I'must assume that
they were also turned away. Where might that
waste be now?
Question: How many other citizens were,
turned away between 11:30 and 2 p.m.? If this
event is held just once a year and some years not
at all, why the limited capacity to participate and
why the conditional closure with no prior warn-
ing for potential participants driving long dis-
tances to the dropoff site? Might this circum-
stance have been anticipated by those
experienced with such projects and/or consult-
ing with local government officials?

'Grave injustice'
Outrageous. That is how I, owner of Mystic,
as well as the owners of Highlander, Golden
Lilly and Endless Summer received the letter
to the editor castigating the employees of the
marina (April 15). The person writing the article
seemed to have an agenda. My wife and I have
spent many enjoyable days at the marina. We
liked the people at the marina as well as the
town's people enough to consider relocating to
the area. We even spent a day with a friendly real-
tor, Mark Walker, looking at homes. The article
was a grave injustice.

Second Amendment rights
It's time I start writing letters again, just to
wake people up about our rights.
If it were your First Amendment right you
would see every reporter in the U.S. raising hell.
Why don't people think the same about our other
rights? Now the Obama administration and the
Mexican officials want to tell you it's our Second
Amendment rights that are to blame for all the
guns and violence in thier country and on our
border.
But that's not the truth. The Mexican officials
still have not released the serial numbers from
guns that have been taken on raids. Why? The
main reason is because if they were to let the seri-
al numbers out, it could prove that the majority
of these weapons are from South America, some
are even from the Mexican army.
If the reporters were told that all the printing
presses were to be destroyed because our pres-
ident thought that some of our words would hit
a nerve, because we do have freedom to write,
say what we feel.
Did you know that there is a program that was
set up to promote firearm safety, training and
marksmanship, especially for our youth? It's
called the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
Under this program surplus military firearms
can be purchased from the government.
Our rights are just that, if we don't stand up
for them, one day you may look around and
remember. "We had them at one time."

Guarding the fort


You've heard all this
before, surely. Why build a
moat to protect the fortress if
you can't throw a few crocs in
there to make it more interest-
ing? Crocodiles, moats, they
go together like shoes and
socks.
Well, you don't have to
travel to far off places to find
crocodile-filled moats. If you
happen to be at the historic
fort in Fort Clinch State Park
this time of year, you just
might find such a scene right
here at home: Well, not exact-
ly crocodiles, but members of
the biological order
Crocodylia, which live right
with us on Amelia Island.
Alligators.
Spring is the time of year
when many of our animals
seek mates and fight for the
right of sole access to them.
Alligators live in the remain-
ing natural areas on Amelia
Island, and usually are diffi-
cult to spot, what with their
camouflaged coloration and
their propensity to float silent-
ly in duckweed covered fresh-
water ponds.
But now, when they are on
the move, alligators pop up
just about anywhere. Males
i challenge one another for a
female, and the losers slink
off to nurse their wounds.
Sometimes these travels take
Them to the beach, where they
can swim for awhile in salt
water until they find another
area with fresh water to move
in to. And, sometimes, these
travels take them right to the
moat around Fort Clinch.
A couple of weeks ago I
heard about a large alligator


in the moat
and set off to
see it for
myself.
There was a
little bit of
wetness
around the
moat after
the recent
WILD. heavy rains,
WAYS and this was
Pat just enough,
apparently,
Foster-Turley for an alliga-
... tor to linger,
in. By the
time I got to the fort to check
it out, the alligator had settled
against the fort wall, visible to
people on the walkway to the
fort sally port, and an attrac-
tive nuisance to curious visi-
tors. The Fish and Wildlife
Commission was notified, and
expected to arrive at any time
to move the alligator further
into the woods and out of trou-
ble.
. I'm glad I got there to see
it. This was one big alligator.
Park ranger and Civil War re-
enactor Frank Ofeldt counted
the bricks on the fort wall
ney to the alligator, and it was
more than nine feet long. If
this gator was fleeing a rival, it
sure would be interesting to
see how big the victor was!
I angled, around the gator,
at a safe distance to take tele-
photos, but still was not con-
tent with my shots. I won-
dereld if somehow there was a
way to get a photo of the gator
from the fort itself. .
With Frank's help, yes
indeed there was a way. Frank
took out his big chain of old


fort keys and before long we
were up on the fort wall itself,
above the gator. At least,
Frank was. It turns out that I
am much more afraid of
heights than I am of alligators.
It only took one glance to the
unfenced wall top before I
hunkered down and gingerly
retreated to safer ground.
Frank, an ex-paratrooper,
had no such problem.. He hap-
pily took my camera and shot
great photos right off the
edge of the fort, dozens of feet
above the beast, while I sat
nearby at a safer location
nowhere near the edge. The
gator was oblivious to the
scene above him he had
other thirigs on his mind.
Before the gator relocators
showed up, the gator took his
own initiative and moved on
back towards the beach and
onward to his destination,
whatever that turned out to
be, and was not seen again.
With gators still on my
mind, I left the fort to visit
Willow Pond, the epicenter of
gator activity in the park.
Maybe I would see the victor,
possibly a gator even bigger
than our friend at the fort. I
was alone, walking the trail,
quietly seeking a big gator,
but this did not disturb me
nearly as much as the height
of the fort wall.
If you want to see alligators
this spring, you can take the
Willow Pond nature trail loop
in Fort Clinch State Park and
maybe-get lucky. For an.even
more likely sighting, visit the
Egans Creek Greenway and
check out the fresh water
ponds and canals. Just be sure

Dreams'continue to flourish'


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
High school seniors from
across Nassau County were
awarded scholarships April 21
for their participation in the
Take Stock in Children
Program. Twenty-five middle
school students were also
accepted into the program dur-
ing a ceremony held at the
Florida Community College at
Jacksonville Betty P. Cook
Nassau Center.
Take Stock in Children is a
statewide non-profit organiza-
tion that provides full tuition
scholarships to students from
low-income families. In order
to receive the "two-plus-two"
scholarships which pay for
two years at a community col-
lege and two years at a state
university students must sign
a ,contract to stay in school,
maintain good grades and meet
with a mentor once a week.
"We do get funds from the
Department of Education to
help run the program, but the
scholarships for the 25 students
tonight are purchased through
the Florida Prepaid College
Foundation by local businesses
and individuals who believe
education is the key," Nassau'
County TSIC Program Director
Jody Mackle said during the
ceremony.
Mackle thanked the adult
mentors who volunteered their
time to help guide the students.
'"This year we have 142 men-
tors meeting with their students
throughout the county," she
said. "You are truly the glue
that holds this program togeth-
er. ... The 142 mentors have vol-
unteered over 2,500 hours men-
toting their students this year."
Mentor John Landregan,
who mentored Fernandina
Beach High School senior
Domonic Jones for five years,
told new TSIC volunteers they
would find the program reward-.
ing. "You that are starting as
mentors are going to learn as

gram is the single best program

and this is my 34th year in the
school system." l
Ruis reminded the students
of their obligation to maintain
good grades and good conduct.
He also pointed out that par-
ents of TSIC scholars had to
sign agreements pledging to
support their children. "You
have been selected as a Take
Stock in Children Scholar
because you have already
demonstrated that you have the
ability to succeed," he told the
students. ... "If these obligations
are fulfilled by (you and your
parents), a Take Stock in

recipient Daneen Johnson, also

Johnson said the program
had opened previously unavail-
able opportunities to all her chil-
dren. "What does happen to a

said? Well, because of Take
Stock, I don't ever have to know
that," she said. "My dream of
college for my children contin-
ues to flourish."
. Finally, Hilliard
Middle/Senior High School
senior Kenny Zodel made one
more call for the new TSIC
scholars to put their all into the
program. Zodel, who at age 11
lost his father to a heart attack,
and his mother to cancer less
than a year later, said the pro-
gram changed his life.
"I'm really thankful for the
Take Stock in Children men-
tors who've guided me through
middle and high school," he
said. "... I'd like to say thanks
again, and I hope the young
people who got accepted (into
the program) today will take
advantage of this wonderful
opportunity."

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader


Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves said detec-
tives are aggressively, investi-.
gating the deaths of Fernandina
Beach residents Dick and Myra
Larkin, and their son, Gregory.
David Larkin, 35, one of,six
children is still in custody at
the Nassau County-Jail.
But since the younger.
Larkin, accused of stealing his
parents' SUV, has invoked his
right to counsel and retained
an attorney, he has not been
cooperative with police.
Seagraves has not referred
to the son as a suspect in the
homicide, though he's describ-
ed him as a "key person of inter-
est." Larkin was arrested for
grand theft of an automobile;
he's accused of stealing the
SUV that was missing from his
parents' home.
Gregory Larkin reportedly
had been staying with his par-
ents at their Caprice Lang home
since January, when he showed
up "without warning." Police
say Larkin claims his' parents
allowed him to borrow the
SUV, which was found parked at
the Jacksonville International
Airport hours after the victims'
bodies were found in their
Caprice Lane home on April 18.
Larkin was found staying at
a hotel nearby. He told police
then he had just returned from
Mexico. Police confirmed he
left for Mexico on, Easter


Sunday and
returned the
following
S Saturday, the
day his par-
ents' bodies
were found.
Seagraves
Larkldn said 'the vit-
w times were
found ia sepa-
rate locations in their home
Saturdaymorning during awell-
being check by police, but they
could havi been dead for up to.
six days.
Larkin is being held on a
$200,004 bohd. In addition to
grand theft of a motor vehicle,
SLarkin is being charged with
driving without a valid driver's
license.
. Seagraves said Larkin, with
two of his siblings, operated a
family-owned diving and kayak-
ing business, Aquamor, in Costa
Rica. Dick and Myra Larkin
reportedly financed the
business about 15 years ago for
their children, but after some
"competition and sibling rival-
ry," Seagraves said the other
two siblings left the business
and Gregory Larkin was
currently running it by him-
self.
He reportedly was consid-
ering selling the business due to
difficult economic times.
Dick and Myra Larkin had
been married for 51 years. The
Larkins both were killed by
blunt force trauma.

Violent crime


shows decrease


here, statewide


SHANNON MALCOM -
News-Leader
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement released the
2008 Annual Uniform Crime
Report earlier this month, and
reveals a drop in violent crime
throughout the state arid here
locally.
That statewide decrease is
mirrored in the numbers the
FDLE released for Nassau
County. But Nassau County.
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said
he takes the numbers released
by the FDLE with a grain of
salt
"We're such a small coun-
ty that it's kind of difficult to go,
by the way they keep those
kinds of statistics," Seagraves
said. "We pretty well just...
keep our own internal statis-
tics."
Seagraves points to how
the murder rate dropped by
50 percent in Nassau County
from 2007 to 2008 but when
there were only two homi-
cides in the county in 2007,
the decrease to ohly one homi-
cide in 2008 is more likely due
to chance than any real crime
trend.
The most dramatic
decrease in Nassau County
numbers was a
drop of more than 35 per-
cent in the number of report-
ed aggravated assaults from'
973 in 2007 to 602 in 2008.
But grves shrugs off
the stat, saying a change in
the way the figures are report-
ed to the FDLE is a factor in
the big decrease.
'IThe reporting process
changed, they were asking for
different categories," he said.
'They change the categories
around every year... ifts hard
to keep up year by year, we
just run our stuff separately."
Statewide, reported vio-
lence crimes decreased even
as the population of Florida
increased.
'The 2008. report shows
that the number of violent
crimes decreased by 4.3 per-
cent ... additionally, domestic
violence incidents dropped by
1.8:percent when compared

to the previous year," accord-
ing to a written statement
released by the FDLE April
17. ... Florida's population
increased by 0.7 percent, or
about 126,800 new people."
The population of Nassau
County increased from 2007
to 2008 as well, by about 2,346
new people.
Using internal methods to
track crime trends instead of
putting too much stock in the
UCR numbers has revealed
no major changes in the past
two years, Seagraves said..
'Nothing really sticks out
that has changed significaht-
ly," Seagraves said. "Of course,
overall you're likely to see a'
gradual incline (in the num-
ber of crimes reported) due
Ato economy issues and popu-
lation issues."
And while Seagraves dis-
tances himself from most of
the UCR statistics for the
county, he does take credit for
the FDLE's reported "clear
rate" f6r Nassau County
crimes. At a reported rate of
'45 percent of crimes being
cleared in 2007 and 43 percent
of reported crimes in 2008,
Nassau County boasts one of
the highest clear rates in the
'state.
Some of the cases are
cleared when .an arrest is
made, Seagraves said, others
are cleared when stolen prop-
erty is recovered.
"I contribute that to good
police work," Seagraves said.
"Proper training and good
police work."

Strasser crowned regional champion in two events


S.., Pirate pair, Yulee thrower qualify for state meet


SPAUL BUCHANAN/SUWANNEESPORTS.COM
Stephanie Strasser, Fernandina Beach High School junior, collected
a pair of first-place finishes Friday in the Class 2A, Region 1 meet at
Chiles High School in Tallahassee. Strasser finishes first in the twvo-
mile, left, and led the pack also in the mile. She, and teammate
Amanda Woods qualified for Saturday's state meet in Winter Park.


BETH JONES
News-Leader


"I was really just determined, in a
zone. I know my potential," said
Stephanie Strasser. The Fernandina
Beach High School junior clinched
the tile in both the mile and two-mile
Friday at the Class 2A, Region 1 track
and field meet at Chiles High School
in Tallahassee.
Strasser was the district champi-
on in the two-mile and finished second
in the mile.
"I was determined to win both of
them and I blew away the competi-
tion," she said. "So, I was happy."
Strasser also qualified for the
region meet in the 800m.
'She now advances to Satur'day's
state meet in Winter Park along with
senior Amanda Woods, who placed
fourth in the 100m hurdles to earn
her first state berth. Woods set a per-
sonal record with a time of 15.76.
They won't le alone. Yulee will also
be sending a senior. Quincy Hardy
finished second in the boys shot put to
qualify for state. He also finished ninth
in the discus throw at the region meet.
Strasser, a transfer this season from
Illinois, also went to the state cross


couritry meet this year for the Pirate
harriers. She was district runner-up
and region champion in that event.
"I guess I'm underestimating going
into district," she said. She won't do
that this weekend. She did her home-
work on the state meet and knows
* she'll face stiff competition.
"I have a really good chance to win
both," she said. ,
But the state meet is just a stepping
stone for. Strasser, who plans to vie
for a national tile. I ,
"I have two races left after state,"
she said. "I'll just go from there."
Strasser won the 3200m with a time
of 11:16.05. Her closest threat was 10
seconds behind her. She posted a time
of 5:13.3.1 in the mile, more than four
seconds ahead of' district champion
Elizabeth Tucker of Bishop Kenny.
Those times weren't even Strasser's
personal records.
"I'm not at my peak," she said.
Joncier Smith, a senior at FBfHS,
also qualified for the region meet. She
placed seventh in the long jump with
a leap of 16 feet 7.5 inches. She was
also seventh in the triple jump (33 feet
4.5, inches).

fiers Katherine Dennis placed 11th


in the girls 800m run (2:38.83) and
15th in the 1600m run (7:07.15).

the 1600m (6:45.25).

Tiara Mach and Sheridan Hathaway
finished 11th with a time of .4:21.84.

included Dennis, Collins, Peterson
and Natalie Watson, finished 11th as
well with a time of 12:22.77.

run. The foursome finished 12th with
a time of 9:37.23. !
Stephen Mason took 14th place il

"He was very poised for a fresh-

Roszell gave up two hits and

"We had a bunch of ground

Patrick Garvin had a leadoff

run with a single.
The Pirates (15-11) had just

Roland said Garvin would
likely start on the mound
Tuesday.against West Nassau.
The Pirates capped the reg-
ular season Thursday at home.
They defeated visiting First
Coast 7-4. ,
"It was one of those games
we battled through it and got
some hits," Roland said. "We

knocked him in with a triple;
Crews scored on an error.
Trailing 4-3 in the fifth, the
Pirates broke loose for four

Tyler Thornton singled and
Trent Luman walked to load
the bases. Yonn singled in a
run and Spencer knocked in
two.
Crews led the Pirate hit
parade with a pair of home runs
,(one in-the-park), a triple and a
single. Crews had three RBIs.
The Pirates had 10 hits on
the night Daniel, Yonn, Garvin,
Thornton, Luman and Zack
Spencer all had one hit.,
Yulee's season came to an,
end Monday with a 5-0 shutout
at the hands of West Nassau.
"With the young, inexperi-
enced team we had, I.think we
did a pretty good job of win-
ning the games we were capa-
ble of winning," said Will
Minor, head baseball coach at
Yulee High School. "There
were a few other games we
probably could have won, but in
most of the losses, we just got
beat by better teams.
"We certainly have next year
to look forward to with our
whole starting rotation back,
and a majority of our starting
tedm back. If these returning
players will commit themselves
this offseason to becoming
leaders, and continue to get
faster and stronger, we should
have a bright future ahead."

Gene Smith andlags had a plan and stuck with it


your recliner in front of the TV
Saturday watching the first round of
the NFL draft, anticipating pick No. 8.
Now, keep your hand up if you nearly slid into
the floor when the Jacksonville Jaguars passed
up the chance to draft Texas Tech WR
Michael Crabtree in favor of some offensive
tackle named Eugene.
I did at first. In fact, I might have screamed
a few choice words akin to those spewed by
the New York Jets fans whose lips could be
read on national television after their team
drafted Mark Sanchez. How could the Jaguars,
who have been so devoid of talent'at wide
receiver since Jimmy Smith roamed the side-
lines, pass up the.opportunity to draft a guy
who many say has the chance to be the next
Jerry Rice? How could first-year general man-
ager Gene Smith turn his back on the chance
to transform the league's worst receiving
corps by far into perhaps one of the best if free
agent signee Torry Holt pans out?
But minutes after my mini-meltdown, the
realist within took over and I began to under-
stand the direction of Gene Smith and the


Jaguars. Unlike many who
will theorize that
Jacksonville's receiver busts
were the reason for them
shying away from Crabtree, I
believe the move was part of
a bigger plan that has been in
motion for quite some time.
Sure, the lack of production
from Matt Jones, Reggie
Williams and R. Jay Soward
SPORrTS likely made it an easier deci-
sion. But the first-round
TALK selection of University of
Virginia T Eugene Monroe,
JOHN L. along with the second-round
CRAWFORD selection of University of
-_ ...- Arizona T Eben Britton and
the free. agent acquisition of
T Tre Thomas, made it clear that this front
office is building its offense around Maurice
Jones-Drew.
A Drew and his bolstered offensive line
go, so will Jacksonville. Monroe, Britton,
Thomas and a pretty solid core group of
returning offensive linemen are now the


strength of the Jaguars. Anything Jacksonville
gets from its receiving corps will be merely
complementary to its running game. The bot-
tom line is the Jaguars are a running team and
Gene Smith' approached the 2009 draft with a
running team's mentality.
Now it will be up to that offensive line and
Drew to keep us all sitting up straight in our
recliners next season. Or, better yet, jumping
out of them ...
Speaking of the Jaguars, what a shame it is
that the team's best ever wide receiver might
never be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame
because of his off-the-field transgressions. Of
course you have heard by now that police
arrested Jimmy Smith last week on felony pos-
session charges after a state trooper pulled
him over on 1-95 and found cocaine and less
than 20 grams of marijuana in his car.
While it would be easy to point fingers and
say that Smith doesn't deserve to be honored
because he brought everything on himself, it's
hard not to feel sorry that a guy who brought
so much joy to so many people ended up like
this. Here's to hoping that Smith finds the
-.trngIli to oust his demons once'and for all


and to recover some semblance of the pride
that he once had...
Former University of Florida wide receiver
Percy Harvin found a home in Minnesota last
weekend after the Vikings picked him in the
first round, despite several recent questions
about his character.
Harvin reportedly tested positive for mari-
juana at the NFL Combine in February, which
seemed to initiate a domino effect of stories
we never seemed to hear about during his
three years in Gainesville. One source report-
ed that Harvin supposedly hit a wide receiver
coach in the face and another reported an inci-
dent that he beat up fellow running back Chris
Rainey while he was at Florida.
If those stories are true, Florida head coach
Urban Meyer and his staff did a masterful job
of burying them. And if they are true,
Minnesota might have its hands full with
Harvin off the field. But the Vikings' risk-
return is that several NFC teams will likely
have their hands full with him on it.

Johnson takes blitz title


April has been one of those months when
the constant wind made it seem more like
March, although the temperature has been
great for playing golf. Perhaps it is possible to
blame it on the wind for some of the scores
that have been turned in by the blitz players,
including last Wednesday's outing at the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club.
Steve Johnson continues to play well as he
had a round of 76, good for plus.9 points and
individual honors. John Bray, with an 81 and
plus 5, was second while Don Stipcak took
third place with a 74 and plus 4.
Johnson didn't really need any help as his
plus 9 along with Stan Miller (93, even), Al
Jump (95, even) and Tom Roberts (83, minus
2) was enough to allow the team to finish in
first place at plus 7.
A five-man team made up of Terry Lacoss
(79, plus 3), Jack Croake (84, plus 2), Larry.
Hutchison (87, plus 2), Kenny Pickett (88,
minus 1) and Paul Hensler (87, minus 2) came
in second with plus 4 points.
Third place went to the only other team to
finish on the plus side at plus 1, Simon Carter
(79, plus 3), Bill Larrabee (90, plus 3), Jim
Roberts (81, even) and Price Poole (80, minus
5).
Finishing in fourth place at even was the
team of Lind Swenson (89, plus 3), Al Rio (85,
plus 2), Dennis Sassenger (85, minus 1) and
Rich Vredenburgh (89, minus 4).
Friday saw a smaller group of 63 taking
part in the blitz with the overall scoring much
better than on Wednesday. Individual honors
went to Ronnie Boatright, who had a four-
under-par 69, good for plus 14 points. There
was a tie for second and third at plus 8
between Tom Gray (80) and Bo Alvarez, who
shot a four-under-par 68.
Boatright's plus 14 along with Dennis.
Sassenger's (82, plus 3) was enough to carry
the team that included D.D. Miller (99, even)
and Doug Morris (97, minus 1) into first place
at plus 16.
Second place at plus 13 went to the team of
Gray (plus 8), Larry Brauda (79, plus 6), Bill-
Abee (87, plus 1) and Rudy Campanale (100,
minus 2).
Bo Alvarez's plus 8 received help from John
LaFear (78, plus 6) and Tommy Shave (74,
plus 2) to offset the minus 5 of Roger Smith
(86) and finish in third place at plus 11.
A team with no minuses won fourth place
as Jim Roberts (77, plus 5), Ron Dandurand
(85, plus 1), Dave Mason (80, plus 2) and Al
Rio (87, even) finished at plus 8.,
There was no Saturday morning breakfast
mixer as the annual scholarship tournament
was being held.

One of those awkward shots that can
r eali be mastered with a bit of prac-
-) tice is when your shot lies up against
4 M a tree and you can not take your nor-
mal stance.-As you may expect, you
will need to turn your body around
S and do the opposite of what you nor-
mally do. You want to use irons with the biggest
faces (wedge or 9-iron) and flip it over to match your
flipped stance. As you prepare to make your swing,
the first piece of advice is to not take a full swing. A
short backswing will eliminate any errors since you
are not used to swinging the club this way (back-
wards). You also want to abbreviate the follow-
through, trying to keep your right arm straight (nor-
mally, you want to keep your left arm straight). Try
this technique out a few times and you should be
able to get a good grasp of it fairly quickly.


Throughout the month of May, PGA/LPGA Professionals nationwide will continue PGA Free
Lesson Month which'provides golfers of every age and skill level with the opportunity to leam rn S_
the basics of the game or improve upon existing skills for free. All PGA/LPGA Professionals N -%
participating in PGA Free Lesson Month can be found at PlayGolfAmerica.com. A number of .,
things can be learned in 10 minutes, including how to generate more swing speed, how to read
breaking putts, how to chip with a hybrid golf dub, how to draw the ball for more distance, how to
cure an "over-the-top" swing and how to use your legs for power, to name a few. While the affordability of PGA
Free Lesson Month is evident, since it's complimentary, the health benefits received by playing the game of golf

hypothermia occurs very quickly.
Hypothermia occurs when the body's core
temperature falls below its normal level of 98.6
F to 95 F or cooler. Hypothermia is dangerous
because it affects the body's core the brain,
heart, lungs and other vital organs. Even a
mild case of hypo-thermia affects your physi-
cal and mental abilities and increases the risk
of accidents. Severe hypothermia causes loss
of consciousness and may result in death.
Cold water is especially dangerous because
loss of body heat occurs 25 times faster in cold
water than in cold air.
The Coast Guard Auxiliary strongly urges
the public to wear life jackets anytime while
out on the water and to.check weather condi-
tions before heading out. Having proper sur-
vival gear while under way and filing a float
plan (www.floatplancentral.org) with a friends
or family member is strongly recommended.
Now is also a good time to take advantage
of a free Vessel Safety Check offered by the

formed volunteer component of the U.S. Coast
Guard'created by an Act of Congress in 1939.

Summer boating safety
Summer will soon be here and for many
parents, this may be the first time your family

resources at www.BoatUS.com/foundation to
make sure the kids are safe.

your child.
Boaters don't always have every kid-sized
life jacket aboard. However, the BoatU.S.

other waterfront businesses where parents
can borrow a kid's life jacket (in various sizes)

Free 10-minute golf lesson in May


Put a little spring in your golf swing with a
free 10-minute lesson during the 12th annual
PGA Free Lesson Month. Throughout the
month of May, PGA and LPGA professionals
nationwide will provide golfers of every age
and skill level with the opportunity to learn the
basics, of the game or improve upon existing
skills through this successful initiative, which
will reach the one million free lesson mark in
2009.
All PGA and LPGA professionals participat-
ing in PGA Free Lesson Month can be found
at PlayGolfAmerica.com.
According to Golf Digest, a number of
things can be learned in 10 minutes, including
how to generate more swing speed, how to
read breaking putts, how to chip with a hybrid
golf club, how to draw the ball for more dis-
tance, how to cure an "over-the-top" swing and
how to use your legs for power, to name a few.
While the affordability of PGA Free Lesson
Month is evident, since it's complimentary, the'
health benefits received by playing the-game
of golf are invaluable as well. Whether as an
individual or with friends or family, PGA Free
Lesson Month offers the perfect excuse to get
outside, learn new skills and get a little exer-
cise, all while enjoying the game of golf.
"By participating in PGA Free Lesson
Month, consumers of all experience levels will
benefit firsthand from expert lessons provided
by PGA and LPGA professionals in a comfort-
able one-on-one setting," said PGA of America
President Jim Remy. "As we approach the one
million9 free lesson mark, we are pleased so
many consumers have already taken advan-
tage of this program and invite those who have
not to contact a local PGA or LPGA profession-
al and hit the links for an tinforgettable experi-
ence'." . ..d', -
Since The PGA of America and Golf Digest


jointly launched this nationwide campaign in
1998, more than 938,000 free lessons have
been given. Last year, nearly 6,340 PGA and
LPGA professionals nationwide gave more
than 106,600 free lessons to consumers.
Among those who participated in 2008, 54 per-
cent were new customers at the host facility,
30 percent were women and 23 percent were
new to the game.
One of the most successful growth-of-the-
game initiatives in the golf industry, PGA Free
Lesson Month is a collaborative campaign
spearheaded by The PGA of America, Golf
Digest Publications and Golf Channel.
"One million free lessons is an incredible
accomplishment and a great benefit to the
game of golf," said Jerry Tarde, chairman and
editorial director of GolfDigest Publications.
"We are extremely proud to be associated with
PGA Free Lesson Month and thank The PGA

An Easter and birthday celebration like no other


DearJosie
What fun, granddaughter of mine,
you are almost one. You came all the
way from North Carolina to Amelia
Island to hunt for Easter eggs and
celebrate your almost birthday. My
arms were out from the moment you
arrived. Never too much warm baby
for this grandmother. No shy violet,
you happily went from lap to lap. I
quickly learned that you have two
speeds on and off. You are not
walking yet, but are close and will
soon start your journey into the
world one tiny step at a time.
What a gang we were!
Grandmothers, grandfathers, an
aunt, two Yorkshire Terriers, two
Corgis and you. Our entourage was


determined to take
advantage of all of
Amelia Island's
.""' wonderful offer-
ings. Beach time
was a must. We
looked like a travel-
M ing circus as we
y moved along the
ocean's waterline.
FROM Small children ran
THE to greet the circling
PORCH dogs, who recipro-
cated with wiggles
and licks.
Dickie On Saturday
Anderson, afternoon we head-
ed to the harbor
and one of Amelia Island River,


Cruise's sightseeing tours. On a pic-
ture perfect day, we headed north
along the Amelia River and toward
Cumberland Island. Ellyn Morgan,
our narrator, did a wonderful job. We
passed tired old shrimp boats, Old
Town, Fort Clinch and the mysteri-
ous uninhabited islands in the river.
Any boat trip near Cumberland
Island includes the hope that there
will be horses in sight. We were
rewarded royally. Lots and lots of
horses gathered on the broad, white
sand beaches that hug the'south end
of the island. The horses were all col-
ors of the equine rainbow and intent
on running and herding. The boat
slowed and we noticed one cluster of
horsed tightly circled. Morgan


explained when a small group circles
it often means a new birth. To our
amazement a small foal lay on the
ground. What a moment! To top it
off, Morgan's voice came over the
loud speaker: "We have a tradition on
board. When we witness a new birth
on Cumberland we name the baby
after the youngest on our boat."
Well, Josie, that was you. So now
a young caramel colored foal is mak-
ing its way on Cumberland and is
named after you. Certainly hope she
is a girl!
Your first Easter was a good one.
Yes, we had an egg hung. Not quite
the White House extravaganza, but
you thought it was fun. Bright plastic
eggs were scattered around the


lawn. Your Easter egg hunttdemand-
ed your father assist. He bent like a
great crane and dipped you down to
scoop up the plastic eggs full of jelly-
beans. You would grin, hold each
egg up triumphantly and shake the
egg like a castanet Then into the
basket they went.
Nana will miss your first birthday
party, but we had the first of several
planned celebrations. Each gift was
greeted with a cheer and big smile.
So happy first birthday Josie of
mine and Josie of Cumberland
Island.
Dickie Anderson-welcomes your
comments. Books are available at
local book and gift stores or on line at
www.dickieanderson.com.

recent visit to our beautiful

has to happen. So here
goes.
In an era where we are
seeing the myriad effects of
selfish and arrogant behav-

economy and financial insti-

try and environment, there
is yet another nasty example
right here in our little corner
of paradise. It's called dog
poop. And it's everywhere.
Most recently, I noticed it on
the beach. It's bad enough
when someone lets their
dog go on the side of the
road. or a neighbor's yard
without cleaning it up. But to
let them go on the beach,
where someone, is soon
going to lay down their blan-
ket, or worse yet, where a
child is going to sit and play,
defies my imagination. I
truly cannot fathom the
thought process that goes
into this. I think, what kind .

up some of the ignorance.
