Settlement agreement
The settlement agreement reached in February
between plaintiff The Florida House Inn, Inc., and the city
of Femandina Beach (including Fred Lindes, code enforce-
ment officer, and the city Code Enforcement Board) includ-
ed these special provisions:
A) Parties agree to a joint meeting with State Attorney
Angela Corey to discuss the current city noise ordinance
and possible alternatives. After the meeting, the city will
take all necessary steps to adopt, amend and/or enforce
its noise ordinance.
B) City agrees to investigate occupancy limits and relat-
ed restroom facilities as well as compliance with general
code and permitting requirements of businesses within the
Historic District, as well as permitting misrepresentations.
Inspections shall take place during meaningful times so as
to fully evaluate the business use.
C) City will release all liens and fines for plaintiff's sign
violation to date
Di The city will provide an educational memorandum to
commissioners regarding Chapter 286, Florida Statutes
(Sunshine Laws).
E) The above will be completed within 60 days from this
date.
F) The parties agree that they will maintain confidentiali-
ty of the mediation terms and any discussion regarding the
sign ordinance and the noise ordinance.
GI The city will not pursue sign violations against the
plaintiff under the current sign ordinance. Plaintiff will relo-
cate the two southernmost neon signs to the interior of the
building behind the dripline of the porch. All four signs will
thereafter be considered conforming signs.


SUNSHINE
Continued from 1A
According to a transcript
of the session, Bach, while
talking about code violations,
first brought up the Florida'
House Inn's sign ordinance
case.
Later in the session
Tomassetti mentioned a house
- not Austin's property - the
city had tried to condemn. He
also said, a little later, "... the
case of the Florida House is fit-
ting because ... they hold an
occupational license from the
city, that is, a license that is a
privilege to operate." '
"I wonder, in their case,"
Tomassetti went on, "maybe
not to collect the fines, but just
say, 'You take that sign down
or we're revoking your occu-
pational license and you're not
going to be open any more.'
I'm just throwing that out."
Then-commissioner Joe
Gerrity was the only one to
question the propriety of talk-
ing about unrelated subject
matters.
"Are we moving off of the
- is this included in the exec-
utive session, the Florida
House?" Gerrity asked, but
got no response to his ques-
tion.
Petersein said commis-
sioners, do not have to actual i
ly participate in conversation
to be in violation of the
Sunshine Law - they only
have to be present. She also
said that any action taken as a
result of that violation could
become null and void - includ-
ing, conceivably, any settle-
ments that came out of the
meeting.
"It sounds as if the meet-
ing was problematic," said
Petersen. "They're on thin ice."
Bach conceded last week
that part of the settlement
between the Florida House
and the city was a result of a
possible Sunshine Law viola-
tion. It states in part that the
city "will provide an educa-
tional memorandum to com-
missioners regarding Chap.
286, Florida Statutes
(Sunshine Laws)."
Petersen said members of
a closed session are required
by state statute to limit dis-
cussion to "settlement negoti-
ations or strategy sessions
related to litigation expendi-
tures."
Members of a closed ses-
sion also are "not allowed to
have free-range conversation"
about clients or lawsuits,
Petersen said. This restriction
may have been violated by
then-mayor Bruce Malcolm
when he called Joe Warwick
"a convicted felon." Then-vice
mayor Ken Walker also noted
during the session that
Warwick was arrested for
"selling illegal prescriptions"
and wondered out loud "who
holds that liquor license" at
the inn.
Warwick, a licensed phar-
macist, was sentenced in
Federal District Court in April
2000 to five years' probation, a
$1,000 fine and 100 hours of
community service after plead-

ing guilty to a federal fraud
charge. He was accused of pay-
ing kickbacks to physicians
for referrals of patients in the
federal Tricare program for
military retirees and Medicare
program.
Petersen acknowledged
that nobody but a judge could
determine whether there were
any actual violations of the
Sunshine Law during the
closed session. However, the
Florida House Inn did use the
possible violation as part of its
lawsuit against the city, say-
ing the city had "plotted
against the Florida House
Inn."
The lawsuit further states
that "a large portion of the
Jan. 22 closed session) focus-
es on the Florida House Inn's
mounting sign fines and the
city's potential responses."
Bach said the city did not,
in the end, foreclose on
Austin's Florida Avenue prop-
erty.
The closed-session exemp-
tion to public meetings "is
probably the most abused
exemption," Petersen said,
because its.conditions can be
complicated, and "local gov-
ernments have been trying to
loosen it up."
'The commissioners take
an oath that they will uphold
the Constitution,", Petersen
said. "Ignorance is no excuse."

TRAVEL Continued from 1A
up from $164,884 last year.
That amount includes reim-
bursement for mileage, hotels
and meals, Butler said. The
clerk's travel budget
decreased, from $84,520 last
year to $57,014 this year.
Both the clerk's and the
commission's mileage rates are
based on the rates paid to fed-
eral employees by the U.S.
General Services Administra-
tion.
Nassau County School
Board officials and employees
are allotted,55 cents per mile in
reimbursement for use of their
personal vehicles, according
to Executive Director of
Business Services Susan
Farmer.
Tha's down from 58.5 cents
from June 1-Dec. 31, 2008,
Farmer said. The rate was to
be reevaluated again today,
July 1.
Farmer said the per mile
Reimbursement is set based on
the federal Internal Revenue


FEES Continued from 1A
meaning we haven't spent the
money in the time frame that
the ordinance requires," he
said.
The county has a history
of difficulty finding projects
upon which to spend impact
fees. For a project to qualify
for impact fee expenditure, it
has to pass the state's "dual
rational nexus test," a process
that has been called
"Byzantine" by County
Attorney David Hallman.
SThe first test is that they're
legal to take," Interim County
Engineer Jonathan Page said
Thursday. "And the next test to
see if impact fees can be used
is, does it benefit the people
who paid them?"
County Clerk John
Crawford, however, said the
county should be able to find
ways to spend the money.
"We went to great lengths
as a government to enact a law
to collect money, with the
promise that that money
would be spent to enact
growth, and it would be spent
within the confines of the law
within six years," Crawford
said. 'That's a promise that
was broken by the govern-
ment in that they didn't spend
that money, and they must
return it to the payers. The
payers paid that money in
good faith, and they have
every right to expect that
money back when thatprom-
ise is not fulfilled by the gov-
ernment.
"I believe you could spend
every dime of them legiti-
mately, credibly, defensibly - if
you'd just do the justifications
as are required in law," he
added.
Commission Chair Barry
Holloway, long a proponent of
spending the fees, acknowl-


Service rate, which is reviewed
every six months, and might or
might not fluctuate.
The total budget for school
board travel for 2008-9 is
$359,300, of which $177,732
has been spent to date. The
budget for 2007-8 was
$566,844, of which $323,726
was spent.
. The budget covers travel
for itinerant teachers between
schools, travel to and from pro-
fessional development activi-
ties, staff training and trips to
various conferences, Farmer
said.
She also noted that, in an
attempt to reduce costs,
employees use county vehicles
rather than personal vehicles
when possible. Additionally,
she said a rental agreement in
place with .Enterprise Rent-A-
Car is aimed at reducing
expenses.
According to City Finance
Director Patti Clifford, all city
employees are reimbursed
44.5 cents per mile if they use
their own vehicle on a job-relat-


edged the problem. "Either
the (county) attorney didn't
sign off on it, or the clerk did-
n't sign off on it, or we were
going after projects that didn't
qualify for impact fees. I don't
think it's anything that the
commissioners did or didn't
do," he said. "I don't think it's
been any one individual -just
basically lack of taking it for-
ward enough to get it done.
The ultimate responsibility
lays with the Board of County
Commissioners, which is why
I've been so vocal for the last
two years."
However, Holloway said,
the commission is taking steps
to find suitable projects for the
fees. "All five commissioners
have met privately with
Jonathan (Page) and our con-
sultant to identify impact fee
projects and get them spent,"
he said.
Page said Thursday he had
been working with
Jacksonville firm King
Engineering to find eligible
projects. "Right now we're

ees also have the option of driv-
ing a car from the city's car
pool.
City employees, such as the
city manager, who regularly
drive city-owned vehicles do
not receive mileage reim-
bursement.
Clifford said the city's
mileage reimbursement rate
is based on the state's
Department of Revenue and
has not been changed since
"some time in 2007." Some
municipalities, she said, base
their mileage reimbursement
on Internal Revenue Service
standards, which are higher
and can change as often as
twice a year.
The city does not track the
amount spent for employee
mileage reimbursement,
Clifford said. Rather, all
expense report forms go into a
city travel expense account.
Clifford added that the city
does not reimburse employees
for mileage frequently.

under consideration are all

adding turn lanes and widen-

rolling on this path. ... We've
gotten the first couple of

think we're heading in the
right direction.... I would think
we could use all $10 million in

home fire

No one was hurt, but about
$200,000 damage was done
Monday evening to a house that
caught fire as a result of a light-
ning strike.
Fernandina Beach Fire-
Rescue Department was dis-
patched to the residential struc-
ture fire at 2811 Magnolia
Woods Court about 6:17 p.m.,
city Fire Chief Daniel Hanes
said in a press release.
Firefighters reported there
was heavy smoke and flames
coming from the roof of the
single-family dwelling. They
used ground ladders to reach
the roof of the house and
operated above the fire that
was spreading through the
attic. They were eventually
able to achieve control by cut-
ting a hole in the roof to control
the fire spread and gain
access to extinguish it, Hanes
said.
The occupants, a couple
and their pet dog, were able to
escape without injury. During a
search of the house, firefighters
found the family's cat
unharined and hiding under a
bed.
It took 15 firefighters
approximately 45 minutes to
bring the fire under control.
Heavy rains, flooding and
wind damage also was reported
as a severe storm swept
through the area.
A fallen tree blocked First
Coast Highway, among other
damage reports.

BUSINESS


FBHS is among top



schools in the U.S.


et cuts, teacher
reassignments and
school closings are
the predominant themes in
public education here, there
are still exemplary perform-
ances in the classroom.
Fernandina Beach High
School catapulted up the rank-
ings in the annual Newsweek
magazine list of top high
schools in the U.S. FBHS
appeared as the 512th best
high school, improving its
standing dramatically from
No. 908 last year.
FBHS has been ranked in
the top 1,000 high schools for
the last three years. The
school's emphasis on
Advanced Placement courses
for its top-performing stu-
dents has established it as one
of the country's elite schools.
The Newsweek poll is based
upon the percentage of stu-
dents taking AP as well as
other upper-level classes and
exams. This year, the criteria
changed slightly. It also
judged the number of stu-
dents achieving a minimum
score on AP exams, for
instance.
The Newsweek rankings
began in 1998. Other


Jacksonville-
area schools
appearing on
this year's
. list include:
* Stanton
College
Prep, No. 4;
, Paxon, No.
6; Douglas
STEVE'S Anderson
MAAK(ET School of the
PLACE Arts, No. 42;
Nease, No.
92; Fletcher,
Steve Nicklas No. 133;
Wolfson, No.
154; Mandarin, No. 159;
Sandalwood, No. 217; and
Bartram Trail, No. 425.
FBHS's ranking of 512
truly places it among the ultra-
elite schools in this area as
well as nationally. To place just
behind larger, prestigious
public schools such as
Bartram Trail, Sandalwood
and Nease is no easy task.
During these difficult
financial times that call for
leaner schools and less
resources, it is inspiring to see
a presiding emphasis and
focus on excellence in the
classroom. FBHS principal
Jane Arnold and her staff
should be once again com-

mended for bringing national
attention to the local school
district.
Meanwhile, other schools
in Nassau County also moved
to the head of their classes
this year with improved
scores on state exams. The
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, or more
commonly known as FCAT, is
given each year to certain
grade levels in the state.
Nine of the county public
schools earfied the highest
grade of an "A" - including
the relatively new Yulee High
School.
The grades for each school
are based upon a point sys-
tem, derived from student
scores. Nassau County
schools received one fewer
"A" than last year, but still
fared quite respectfully - with
9 of 12 earning top grades.
Among the high schools
here, Yulee High improved
from a "D" score last year to
an "A" this year.
Yulee was the only local
high school to score below a
"B" last year, but the only one
of the lot to score a top grade
this year.
FBHS's score dropped to a
"C" this year, from an "A" last
year. West Nassau scored a
"D" and Hilliard Senior High
earned a "B." Nassau schools
preserved their overall "A"
rating and scored among the
top districts in the state.
That is quite an accom-
plishment for a rural school
district strapped with declin-
ing revenues and state sup-
port. Local schools get more
than just a top grade for per-
formance - they also get an
"A" for effort.

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/PAT KEOGH/FERNANDINA BEACH


Public
R on Sapp's June 17
article regarding the
management of our
golf course and mari-
na invited other views.
Mr. Sapp's perspective of
the alternatives is rather typi-
cal with respect to important
public assets. Either govern-
ment manages and controls
the assets or government leas-
es or sells to a private entity. I
tend to think of the options as
a wide spectrum of choices
and I usually dispose of the
standard two out of hand. Let
me tell you why city manage-
ment of complex public assets
makes no sense to me and
shouldn't to Mr. Sapp.
Suppose the Sapp Family
Foundation owned the marina
and golf course. Would Ron
and his family consider the
city as a prospective asset
manager from among all the
management options avail-
able? Of course not! Then
why, if those assets are owned
by the city would anyone seri-

you need the right advisors to

As you can see in this
short synopsis, public-private
partnering is not about a solu-
tion. You cannot know the
solution at the outset. It's
about a process for getting to
the solution that works best
for all parties to the deal.
That's how I think the marina
and golf course deals should
be approached. By the way,

Wonders never cease:



Wild mink on the beach


W wonders never
cease. The
longer I patrol
the natural areas
of Amelia Island the more I
feel like I am discovering
more "layers of the onion"
that surrounds us. Just one
walk on the beach yields sur-
prises for everyone. But after
dozens of dawn walks, I'm
still not surprised when I find
something new. Surprised,
no, but delighted - yes, of
course!
Nothing, though, can top
the delight I felt on a recent
beach stroll at Fort Clinch
State Park. It was just past
dawn and instead of walking
from the North End beach
parking lot to the Fort Clinch
pier and turning back, I decid-
ed to keep walking another
mile or so up the beach all the
way to the fort.
Along the way, I kept
watch for the least terns now
nesting again above the dune
line in an area posted with
signs to protect their nearly
invisible eggs from human
interlopers. The Wilsons
plovers that had hatched out
in this section of beach a
number of weeks ago were
still in juvenile plumage but
looking more and more like
adults. Here and there a tur-
tle nest was evident, laughing
gulls watched me warily as I
strode on by and the resident
great blue heron flew ahead
of me up the beach. All this
was great, of course, but not
unexpected. I've seen these
various species many times,
on many other beach walks,
all part of the circle of life that
makes Amelia Island a great
place to explore.
Coming back from the
fort, getting hot and tired and
wishing my car was not so far
away, I noticed something
strange. A smallish brown
blob that was not there on my
way up the beach now was on
the sand near a large washed


up tree. It
looked like
something
alive, but
S f what?
Pt Then the
blob moved.
Immediately
.I recognized
the long,
WLD l furry shape
WAYS of amink,
right there
in front of
Pat me on the
Foster-Turley beach. I am
aware that
mink live in our area. People
have seen them around the
city marina, and my husband
once saw on crossing
Jasmine Street near the
Egans Creek Greenway. On
various nearby islands Carl
Watson has pointed out tracks
that were most likely mink,
too.
But hearing about them is
one thing. Seeing one right in
front of me is another. I quick-
ly rustled to get my camera
focused and snapped a shot,
fully expecting the mink to
spot me and run away. But it
didn't spot me, or if it did, it'
didn't seem to care.
For precious minutes I fol-
lowed the mink down the
beach, shooting photos now
and again as it perused the
escarpment line looking for
food. Grasshoppers and crabs
were in abundance along the
bank and the little mink had
no problem filling his mouth
with these small prey items. A
marked turtle nest was near-
by, holding a reservoir of
tasty turtle eggs, but the
mink kept going past it, along
the bank, catching crabs.
Every now and then the
mink climbed up a sandy
berm and disappeared face
first into a ghost crab hole. It
was easy to sneak up on the
mink when it was in a hole
and I waited with my telepho-
to trained on the hole, shoot-


ing photos as it emerged cov-
ered with sand.
By now the mink knew I
was there, and once or twice
nearsightedly stared at me as
I tried to keep to a nonthreat-
ening distance; For the most
part, though, the mink was
just foraging for small prey
and not seeming very con-
cerned about me at all.
Finally, the mink took shel-
ter under an overhanging
bank, and I ventured even
closer to try to get more pho-
tos. This time I got close
enough to hear that chortling
growl, a threat warning, as
the mink faced me down from
its cornered position. Enough
was enough. Time to leave
the mink alone.
As I walked down the
beach toward my car, I forgot
that I was tired. Tired, heck! I
was euphoric! My thoughts
were full of this wild mink and
another mink, "Marvin, the
Minkman," as I called him
years ago at Marine World
Africa USA. Marvin was tame
and we used him for educa-
tional demonstrations. I
always felt sorry for this
active clever little life form
stuck in a cage and nearly
every day I let Marvin loose
in my office and happily lis-
tened to his gleeful chortles
as he explored the nooks and
crannies of my office and
played his pounce game with
me on the floor.
Having a captive tame
mink is one thing, but the
thrill of following a wild mink
is an experience of even high-
er magnitude. These little
otter-cousins are secretive
and mostly nocturnal and few
people ever get to see one in
the wild. But see one I did,
right here on our island. The
pictures tell the story. Enjoy!

Smoke pours Friday from a three-story house on
Spring Tide Lane. Damage was estimated at
$350,000.



3 pet dogs saved



from house fire


Fire and smoke damage
are estimated to have caused
$350,000 damage to a home
and personal contents in the
95000 block of Spring Tide
Lane on Amelia Island.
Nassau County Fire
Rescue responded to a report
of smoke about 6:15 p.m.
Engine 20 arrived within two
minutes to find heavy smoke
coming from the roof and
eaves of a three-story resi-
dence with light smoke com-
ing from the front door, the
fire department reported.
"All of the eastside units
and a unit from Callahan
were dispatched as was Fer-
nandina Beach Fire Depart-
ment, who provided mutual
aid with Engine 102," said Fire
Chief Chuck Cooper. "No one
was at home at the time of
occurrence awhile r
fighting operate were
conducted firefi-hters sear!
ed and rescued three dogs
from the residence without
injury."
The- fire was contained to
the third floor until it was
extinguished.
The home had smoke
damage throughout. The
cause of the fire is under inves-
tigation.
"This 5,200-square-foot
exclusive home overlooking
the marsh was built in 2003
and had a firewall built
between the adjacent mirror-


image residence," said Cooper.
"The firewall held throughout
extreme fire conditions and
saved the valuable home next
door."
The home is' currently
uninhabitable until repairs are
conducted.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Jason
Yurgartis of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheritffs
Office, the city of Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach
Police Department at 277-7342
or the Nassau County Sheriffs
Office anonymously by calling
225-0147 in Yulee and
Fernandina Beach or 879-2136
in Callahan, Hilliard and
Bryceville. The "We Tip" pro-
gram - 1-800-78CRIME - also
allows callers to leave anony-
mous tips.

Battery arrest
Corey Franklin Smith, 33,
of 725 South 15th St.,
Fernandina Beach, was arrest-
ed for aggravated domestic bat-
tery about 8:23 p.m. June 28
following an altercation with his
mother's fiancee.
Fernandina Beach Police
were called to the home and
found Smith standing in the
driveway with scratched and
bloody hands. According to an
arrest report, Smith's mother
said her son was irate because
he couldn't find his belongings,
began using profanity toward
her, then punched her fiance'
until he fell to the ground after
he asked Smith to stop scream-
ing.
Smith allegedly continued
the assault until his mother was.
able to pull him off and call 911.
The fight continued until the
two were once again separated
and Smith stood outside the
home until police arrived.
Smith told police that his
mother's fiancee tried to choke
him twice, after which Smith
punched him in the face, then
four or five more times as the
man came at him. Smith said he
then headed for the front door
and dodged a kick from the


man before tripping him up and
heading outside.
Smith was taken to the
Nassau County Jail after receiv-
ing X-rays at Baptist Medical
Center Nassau, which revealed
a contusion on his right thumb.
The fiancee, who authorities
later found out is deaf and suf-
fers from poor eyesight, was
transported to the hospital
where he was treated for a dis-
located shoulder and a cut on
his head that required staples.

Job scam
An unemployed Fernandina
Beach resident was the victim
of an apparent con game involv-
ing a job search website and
the state's unemployment
office.
According to a Nassau
County Sheriff's Office report,
the victim had signed up for
unemployment benefits and
was utilizing a website called
snagajob.com, both of which
required him to volunteer per-
sonal information which author-
ities believe was compromised.
The victim received an unso-
licited letter in the mail from a
company calling itself Fabcon
Incorporated offering him a job
as a mystery shopper. He also
received a check for $3,980 to
deposit to use as a mystery
shopper to evaluate the servic-
es of Wal-Mart and

Some time later, he received
another letter that said he had
won a $250,000 prize. The letter
included a check for $4,991 to
aid him in paying a "Non-

At this point the victim felt

him they were aware of the
scam.
The victim then called
Fabcon Incorporated at a num-
ber he found on the Internet
and learned it was a construc-
tion company and that its
lawyers were investigating the
scam.
No arrests have been made,
but the man provided the
deputy handling the case with
most of the paperwork he
received and the case is pend-
ing further investigation.

Truck in ocean
The Nassau County
Sheriffs Office was called to
1940 Lewis St. at the American
Beach beach access June 22 to
help with a disabled vehicle.
According to an incident
report, authorities discovered
the caller had driven his truck
below the high tide mark on
the beach, causing it to get
stuck in a patch of soft sand
and burying it up to its frame.
At the man's request a tow
truck was called to retrieve the
vehicle but before it arrived the
tide rose and waves threatened
to overtake the truck as water
began to rise to the bottom of
its doors. At that time, the
deputy and detective on scene
took action and pulled the vehi-
cle from the water before it was
lost.
There was no damage to the
vehicle and the man was able to
drive off the beach without inci-
dent.

Burglary arrests
Five men were arrested on
charges of burglary and theft
June 28 inside the Pirates Bay
subdivision after allegedly
breaking into several vehicles.

in Yulee; Christopher Larry
Roe, 19, of 940749 Nassauville
Road in Nassauville; and Aaron
Seth Thomas, 21, of 732 Old
Amelia Ave., Lot 12 in
Fernandina Beach were each
charged with three counts of
burglary of a structure or con-
veyance and three counts of
petit theft.
Fernandina Beach Police
were first on the scene after an
officer patrolling the subdivi-
sion saw a blue two-door Ford
parked in the road with no
lights on and a person nearby.
As he approached the vehicle,
the lights turned on and the
vehicle drove away, at which
time the officer turned on his
emergency lights and pulled
the car over.
The suspects told the offi-
cer they were "just driving
around," according to an inci-
dent report, but further ques-
tioning revealed the group was
burglarizing vehicles for gas
money, police said.
Aaron Thomas said
Senesac, the driver, and Roe,
who police say originally fled
the scene, had committed sev-
eral vehicle burglaries in the
area within a 30-minute period
while the others waited in the
vehicle, according to the police
report.
After learning that burgla-
ries had taken place elsewhere,
including the Lakewood subdi-
vision, the Fernandina Beach
Police officer turned the case
over to the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office, which sent a
deputy to the scene.
Roe admitted to committing
10 to 12 automobile burglaries
and showed the deputy a bush
where he had hidden some of
the stolen items while trying to
elude police, the report said.
Several items were found in
the car, on the suspects and in
the bushes including a cell
phone, an iPod, a wallet, loose
change and two pairs of sun-
glasses.
All of the men were taken
to the Nassau County Jail and
their vehicle was taken to the
sheriff's office impound lot.

stabbings

JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

Two men were stabbed
over the weekend in unrelat-
ed incidents; one involved an
argument between two broth-
ers who live together, the
other an argument at a bar-
becue.
According to police,
Ramon Osario, 23, was stab-
bed by his brother, Rueben
Osario-Rodriguez, 29, about
2:45 a.m. Saturday following
an argument that began at a
friend's house on Starlight
Lane in Yulee, continued on
the ride home and culminat-
ed when things turned phys-
ical at their Lime Street apart-
ment in Fernandina Beach.
The only witness was the
friend, who drove the two
home, and he could not say
what the argument was
about. But he told police he
saw the brothers begin
punching each other, then
said Osario-Rodriguez went
into the kitchen, grabbed an
object and came at his broth-
er. The victim then stumbled
to the door where he was
seen bleeding and was taken
to the Baptist Medical Center
Nassau emergency room by
the witness.
Ramon Osario was diag-
nosed with a collapsed lung
. and taken to Shands Jackson-
ville. Osario-Rodriguez was
later located and arrested and
booked-at the Nassau County
Jail for aggravated domestic
battery.
The second stabbing hap-
pened about 1:20 am. Sunday
at 96174 O'Neil-Scott Road.
The Nassau County Sher-
iffs Office responded to a call
at Baptist Medical Center
Nassau, where deputies
spoke to a witness who drove
the victim, 53-year-old Lavar-
ina Lee Mitchell, to the emer-
gency room. The witness told
police the victim and 44-year-
old Reginal Leonard Baker
had an argument at the bar-
becue that turned physical
when Baker stabbed Mitchell
with a pocketknife.
Mitchell suffered internal
injuries and was flown by air
ambulance to Shands Jack-
sonville, where he was listed
in fair condition Tuesday.
The suspect was later
found at his home at 96071
Mt. Zion Loop in Yulee along
with a pocketknife matching
a witness description, accord-
ing to a police report
Baker was arrested and
booked in the Nassau County
Jail for aggravated battery
with a deadly weapon.

Deputies shoot Yulee man


after domestic incident


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader
A Yulee man was in fair con-
dition Tuesday at a Jacksonville
hospital after he was shot early
Friday morning by Nassau
County Sheriff's Office
deputies.
The sheriff's office said
Fernando Dubose, 44,'was shot
after he pointed a rifle in the
direction of deputies during a
domestic violence investigation
involving his son at approxi-
mately 4:30 a.m.
The incident began when
deputies responded to a 911 call
about 3:08 a.m. reporting a
domestic battery at 852760 US
17 North in Yulee, and were
subsequently dispatched to
1973 Palm Drive in Fernandina
Beach where the victim sought
refuge.
The victim said her
boyfriend and the father of her
child, Stephen Dubose, started
a physical altercation with her


because she didn't find a job
earlier in the day. She said
things escalated at the Dubose
home, where the two live with
the suspect's parents, when
Stephen Dubose began pulling
her hair and poking her with
his index finger, then poured
milk and salt on her. When she
tried to leave the Yulee resi-
dence,.he threw a steel-toe shoe
at her, striking her in the lower
right side of her back, an inci-
dent report said.
After speaking with the vic-
tim, deputies went to back to
Yulee to talk to Stephen Dubose
about the domestic violence
battery allegations. They
were greeted at the door by the
suspect's mother, Debra
Dubose, according to a press
release.
While advising her that they
needed to speak to her son, the
father of the suspect, Fernando
Dubose, came from the rear of
the home holding a flashlight,
brandishing a rifle and pointing

it at deputies. According to a
police report, the deputies and
a sergeant on the scene, who
were all in uniform, identified
themselves as law enforcement
officers and commanded him
to put down the gun. Fernando
Dubose then pointed the gun
at the sergeant, who dove to the
ground damaging his stun gun
and flashlight, the report said.
Two unidentified deputies
then fired at Dubose, striking
him once in the abdomen. After
being struck he entered the
home, then reappeared at the
front of the home soon after and
surrendered to deputies,
according to the sheriff's office.
A search revealed the rifle in
the bedroom of the home.
Fernando Dubose was taken
into custody and transported to
Shands Jacksonville. He was
booked at the hospital on
Saturday for aggravated assault
on a law enforcement officer,
resisting an officer with vio-
lence, both felonies, and improp-
er exhibition of a firearm, a mis-
demeanor.
Stephen Dubose was located
in the residence and booked
into the Nassau County Jail on
Friday for domestic battery, a
misdemeanor. He was released
on $1,502 bond on Saturday and
ordered to have no contact with
the victim.

FINALLY ITBLOOMS

Almadean Williams and her dog Gypsy pose in the backyard of Williams' Stanley
Drive home next to a century plant that recently bloomed. The plant's name is
derived from its habit of blooming infrequently. After it dies it re-grows itself from
shoots formed at its base. The plant is indigenous to Mexico and is rare in North
Florida and Williams said this is the first time in the two years she's lived at her
current home that she's seen it bloom.

zines are making
their way onto store
shelves and, as most expect-
ed, the University of Florida
is the popular pick to run the
table and claim its second
straight national champi-
onship. But can the Gators
become just the second mod-
ern wire-to-wire No. 1 team?
Notre Dame did it in
1943. Army did it in 1945.
Florida State did it in 1999..
As talented and loaded as the

Florida returns Tim Tebow �
on offense, enough said, and
a ridiculous number of defen-
sive players - taking their

the national title game
unscathed might be border-

Does that mean Florida
can't win a BCS champion-
ship just because it opens the
season in the top spot? Abso-
lutely not, because eight
teams have done it since
1950. But it is unlikely that
the Gators will hold onto No.
1 from the beginning until
the end.
While Florida appears to
have the personnel to be a
wire-to-wire champ, the sub-
jectivity that goes into the
current polling system (a
ticked off sweater-vest-wear-

down to anonymously smack

YMCA Sailfish defeat Bullets, Rays


With two wins under the McArthur YMCA
Sailfish swim team's belt, the team is off to a
great start this season. On June 20, the Sailfish
hosted the Baker Bulletsaand St. Augustine
Rays.
The Bullets and the Rays were ready for a
good race, but they did not expect the Sailfish
to be so eager for another win.
"With the team stronger this year, great
things are going to happen. We had many
unexpected amazing races (that) weekend,"
Coach Mary Donn Bowman said.
Paul Borgman dominated the 11-12 boys

It was a great day for the Sailfish once
again, proving the Sailfish is the fastest fish in
the pool. McArthur YMCA Sailfish hosted

SThe AT&T National is hosted by
Tiger Woods and benefits the
Tiger Woods Foundation. The
event replaced The International in
2007. The AT&T National does not
replicate the modified Stableford


system that The International had. The AT&T National has been played at the
Congressional Country Club in Maryland the past two years, but will move to
Philadelphia next year so Congressional can be prepared for the 2011 U.S.
Open. The Congressional Country Club has hosted three different major tour-
naments, including two U.S. Open's. Last year, Anthony Kim emerged from
the pack with consecutive birdies around the turn at Congressional and closed
with a 5-under 65 for a two-shot victory over Fredrik Jacobson.

. Kenny Peny shot a 63 on Sunday Tournament Results
S to finish with a toumament-record 1st: Kenny Perry
S 258 and won the Travelers Purse: $1,080,000
S Championship by three strokes T-2nd: Paul Goydos & David Toms
' over Paul Goydos and David Purse: $528,000
Toms. Perry tied a course T-4th: Curtis, Mahan & Moore
record with a 61 on Thursday $248000
and led after each of the first two rounds, but trailed by a stroke to
Goydos heading into the final round. He responded by shooting a 32
on'the front nine and was up by 5 strokes heading to the par-4 15th.
"Everyone kind of asks about the Augusta hangover deal," Perry said. "I guess I kind
of shoved that aside a little bit. So that makes me feel pretty good." Perry's bogey-
bogey finishat Augusta kept him from winning the Masters in April.


'., One of the most difficult shots to
1 master is a high, soft lob shot to a
' real tight pin placement, such as
S right over a bunker. The key to this
shot is to get the ball to stop quickly
4 once it lands on the green in order to
Sget the ball as close as possible.
The club of choice for this shot will have to be the 60
degree lob wedge as the standard sand wedge will
cause many more sculled shots than good results.
As for the actual shot, it is quite difficult to get a con-
sistent swing. Going against most of what we have
been taught in golf, you have to cock the wrists
while taking a long backswing. Use your torso on
the downswing, maintaining the cocked wrists and
the blade open through impact. The follow-through,
should have the clubface facing up to the sky to try
and generate the proper bounce and spin.


Japanese teenage golfer Ryo Ishikawa qualified for the British Open on ,
Sunday with a win at the Mizuno Open. The 17-year-old Ishikawa shot a '
final round 73 to secure a place at the July 16-19 British Open at Turnberry x--
with his first win of 2009. "I'm thrilled to have qualified for the British Open," -? _-
said Ishikawa. "There were some tense moments today but it all worked out in
the end." Sunday's win was the third of Ishikawa's career on the Japanese tour.
Ishikawa missed the cut at the Masters and has received a special invitation to play in the
PGA Championship in August. Ishikawa became the youngest winner of a tournament on the
Japanese tour by winning the Munsingwear Open KSB Cup at the age 15 years and 8
months in May 2007.

Big game fish



of St. Marys, Ga. .
Y BJ... ++.a.S. . ..


Saltwater fishermen
departing from either
St. Marys, Ga., or
Fernandina Beach
have a lot in common. When
entering the ocean by the St.
Marys Inlet, fishermen often
navigate right past some of
the best saltwater fishing the
southeastern U.S. has to
offer. A few savvy fishermen
keep their marine radios
turned down low and share
with a few select fishing bud-
dies their impressive saltwa-
ter catches made at the tips of
these fishy jetty rocks.
While most of the game
fish caught at both the St.
Marys north and south jetty
rocks are too big to keep,
catching a legal saltwater
game fish for the dinner table
may be somewhat of a chal-
lenge.
"Our fishing party was
anchored right in the middle
of a school of St. Marys red
drum," said Capt. Keith
Edwards, captain of the "Miss
Kayla" charter fishing boat.
"The tide was perfect with a
slow outgoing tide until 2:30
p.m. Then an incoming tide
began pushing bait right up
against the jetty rocks, where
redfish were taking advan-
tage of an easy meal."
During the height of the
fishing action, Will Beattie
hooked a nice red drum and
began reeling in his catch
when a much larger fish gob-
bled up his catch.
"There is no way of really
telling, but I believe Will
Beattie had hooked a redfish
when that big fish ate Will's
fish," Edwards said.
For the next 15 minutes,
Beattie applied maximum
fishing rod pressure to his
hooked fish while everyone
on board waited patiently to
see the big fish on the end of
his fishing line.
Finally a 150- to 175-pound
"Goliath" grouper came slow-
ly to the surface where
Edwards boated Beattie's
catch long enough to take a
few pictures before releasing
his-catch. The all-tackle IGFA
world record Goliath grouper
was actually caught from the
deep waters of the Amelia
River on May 20, 1961, by
Lynn Joyner and weighed 680
pounds.
During the next few hours,
the "Miss Kayla" fishing party
landed a pair of cobia weigh-


ing to 60
pounds, 10

which four
of the red-
fish fell in
the legal slot

Needless
to say salt-

-*.. men navigat-
Terrylacoss ing the tip of
the St.
Marys south jetty rocks to
fish offshore pass right by the
best fishing waters, maybe
the best saltwater fishing in
the entire southeastern U.S.
- The St. Marys north jetty
rocks also harbor world class
saltwater fishing, where large
schools of tarpon, redfish,
king mackerel, sharks and
the occasional cobia are tar-
geted by saltwater fishermen.
During the spring fishing sea-
son, Derek Crawford landed a
pending new Georgia all-tack-
le black drum. Crawford's big
drum weighed 103.5 pounds.
Several fishing seasons
ago, Roland Martin filmed a
T.V. fishing show at the tip of
the St. Marys south jetty
rocks. Martin hooked and
released a 194-pound tarpon
that was caught on camera
while fishing on my boat, the
"Amelia Angler."
However, Martin's tarpon
wasn't the largest fish that the
"Amelia Angler" had landed
at the St. Marys jetty rocks.
Hugh Stone and Hugh Stone
Jr. teamed up to fight a 500-
pound hammerhead shark for
4.5 hours before the large
maneater was landed.
During the heat of the
summer fishing season, king
mackerel fishermen slow troll
live baits fof giant king mack-
erel at the end of the St.
Marys jetty rocks. World
class king mackerel angler
Joe Bruce landed a 52-pound
king mackerel while king
fishing at the tip of the St.
Marys north jetty rocks in-
1992. Bruce's big mackerel is
still the largest king mackerel
ever weighed in during the
annual Georgia Golden Isles
Kingfish Tournament.
A tried and true fishing-
tactic for a wide variety of St.
Marys saltwater game fish
during the warm summer
months includes anchoring

the best action often comes

A word of warning, a
Georgia saltwater fishing
license is needed when fish-

St. Marys channel and a
Florida saltwater fishing
license is needed when fish-

St. Marys channel.
. I ha\e had big fish hooked
on the F.I rida -id .-,f the

so it pays to have both a

fishing license when fishing

Shoreline anglers need license
Florida's resident saltwater anglers who
fish from shore or a structure affixed to shore
will need to buy a $7.50 (plus administrative
and handling fees) shoreline fishing license
by Aug. 1, unless they have a regular resident
saltwater fishing license.
The new license applies only to Florida res-
ident saltwater anglers who fish from shore.
Resident anglers may prefer to purchase the
regular recreational saltwater license that cov-
ers them, no matter where they fish for saltwa-
ter species in Florida.
Florida has always required non-residents
to have a license when fishing from shore, and
they will still need to purchase a regular non-
resident saltwater fishing license.
The new shoreline saltwater fishing license
for residents goes on sale July 15. It provides
all of the same exemptions as a regular
license, including senior citizens, children, dis-
abled people who meet certain qualifications,
active-duty military personnel while home on
leave and anglers who fish from a licensed
pier. In addition, the shoreline license require-
ment includes two new exemptions: anglers
drawing food stamps, temporary cash assis-
tance or Medicaid; and anglers fishing in their
home counties who use cane poles or other
gear that does not depend on mechanical
retrieval.
At the request of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission, the
Florida Legislature passed the new license
requirement to head off a federal license
requirement that will go into effect Jan. 1,
2010, and will have a $15-$25 fee beginning in
2011. Florida's new shoreline license exempts
this state's anglers from the federal license
requirement.
Several hunting, fishing and conservation
organizations requested other permit fee
changes, which do not take effect until July
2010. They include increases in the state
waterfowl stamp from the current $3 to $5; in
the resident turkey permit from $5 to $10; the
non-resident turkey permit from $100 to $125;
the wildlife management area permit for hunt-
ing, fishing and other recreational uses from
$25 to $30; the limited-entry or special-oppor-
tunity hunt fee from $100 per day to $150 per
day and $250 per week to $300 per week, as
determined by FWC Commissioners; the
snook permit from $2 to $10 and the lobster
permit from $2 to $5.
Also, new laws create a $5 annual deer per-
mit (in addition to the current hunting license
requirement for deer hunters) and allow the
agency to charge up to $5 per day for non-
hunting and non-fishing recreation on certain
wildlife management areas.


The FWC will evaluate areas where it is the
lead manager to determine where to charge
the fees and how much to charge. In addition,
the state will use up to 10 percent of the hunt-
ing and sport-fishing fees to promote those
sports, with emphasis on youth participation.

Xtreme kingflsh events
The United States Kingfish Organization is
announcing its new Xtreme Kingfish
Tournament Series with proceeds benefiting
the athletes of Special Olympics Florida.
The offshore fishing tournaments target
king mackerel. But what distinguishes the
Xtreme Kingfish Tournament Series is its goal
to take the tournament concept to a new level
by not only hosting tournaments that satisfy
even the most competitive fisherman, but
gives back to the community while treating
the participants to dining, entertainment and
special events as part of their tournament
experience.
The United States Kingfish Organization is
a non-profit organization; adding a whole new
dimension to offshore tournament fishing by
making registration fees (in whole or part) tax
deductible to their members.
Xtreme Kingfish Tournament Series
founder Philip Podskalan is merging his vision
of creating a new kind of tournament series
with his desire to introduce others to Special
Olympics Florida, the respected charity that
provides sports training and competition to
children and adults diagnosed with intellectual
disability.
In addition to its commitment to philanthro-
py, the XKTS is dedicated to promoting sport
fshing as a family activity, as well as valuing
sportsmanship and fairness in the sport. Also,
unlike many associations in the industry,
awards for junior and lady anglers will be
given. The organization is aggressively pursu-
ing sponsorship and members to build the
organization to be the biggest in the industry.
In total, 20 tournaments are already in the
works for the 2009-10 tournament season.
Spots are limited and are filling up fast, so for
rules, information, locations and registration,
those interested should visit
www.xtremekts.com.
Confirmed tournament dates and locations:
July 30 through Aug. 2, St. Augustine; Aug. 6-
9, Sebastian; Sept. 25-27, Port Canaveral;
spring 2010, Stuart; April 22-25, Fort Pierce;
fall 2010, Sarasota.
XKTS is also working on a tri-state series to
include Georgia, South Carolina and North
Carolina. Visit www.USKingfish.org.

between the Katie Ride for Life and the American Transplant Foundation in Denver.
Nearly 200 Team Transplant riders raised $35,000.
"One of the goals of the Katie Ride has been to test and create a template for our
cycling event that could, be reproduced in other states and extend organ and tissue
donation awareness through our ride on a national basis. With five years' experi-
ence, we feel that it is important to begin to share our template with like-minded
organizations such as the American Transplant Foundation to help coordinate col-
laborative efforts to promote the advancement of organ and tissue donation," said
Caples. Above, Beattie and Caples meet with Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter.

HOUSE ON FIRE


NASSAU COUNTY FIRE RESCUE PHOIU
Fire is visible Friday from the eaves of a three-story house on

a fire there Monday evening. Stories, pages 3A, 9A.


Did noise law effort begin



with Sunshine Law error?


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
A city violation of the state's
Sunshine Law may have given lever-
age to the Florida House Inn in its
lawsuit against the city, according to
the president of the First Amendment
Foundation.
Joe and Diane Warwick, owners of
the Florida House Inn on South Third
Street, brought the suit against the
city in April 2008, complaining of spot-
ty and unequal enforcement of two
city ordinances.
A controversial February settle-
ment of the lawsuit absolved the
Warwicks of more than $100,000 in
liens levied by the city for neon sign
ordinance violations and included a
special provision to settle a noise ordi-
nance dispute between the Florida
House and the neighboring Green
Turtle Tavern.
As a result, the noise ordinance
has been rewritten several times, been
the topic of numerous contentious
public hearings and is set for a final
vote July 14.
The alleged Sunshine Law viola-


The city agreed to provide an
educational memorandum to commis-
sioners regarding (Sunshine Laws).'
CITY ATTORNEY TAMMI BACH


tion occurred during a closed, attor-
ney/client session in January 2008
that concerned a possible foreclosure
action between the city and property
owner Bert Austin.
All city commissioners were pres-
ent as well as City Attorney Tammi
Bach, City Manager Michael Czymbor
and litigation counsel Jeffrey
Tomassetti, who was representing the
city's code enforcement board.
Attorney Barbara Petersen, presi-
dent of the First Amendment
Foundation, headquartered in
Tallahassee, said one of the conditions
for a closed session is that its subject
matter must have been properly
noticed to the public, among other
requirements.
The subject matter - which was


the Austin case - was indeed proper-
ly noticed. But during the session the
Florida House - an unrelated case -
was brought up by attorneys Bach and
Tomassetti. Petersen says the fact that
there was no pending city litigation
with the Florida House may have been
an additional violation.
Petersen noted that city commis-
sioners would be the only ones in vio-
lation of the Sunshine Law, even if
they did not enter the discussion.
"The commissioners are the ones
who are required to comply with the
law," said Petersen. 'lThe city attorney
should be providing them with the
best advice, but is not subject to the
Sunshine Law."

County pays best



for job car travel


News-Leader


Nassau County government
employees who use their personal vehi-
cles for work are reimbursed at a rate
of more than half a dollar per mile trav-
eled. City employees are reimbursed at
a lower rate.
A survey of local government agen-
cies reveals:
* Nassau County elected officials
and employees receive 58.5 cents per
mile for travel related to their jobs.
* County school officials and
employees receive 55 cents per mile for
using their personal vehicles in work-
.related travel.
* City elected officials and employ-
ees receive 44.5 cents per mile for job-
related travel.
County elected officials and their
employees have received 58.5 cents
per mile since October in reimburse-
ment for use of their personal vehi-
cles, according to the Office of
Management and Budget.


Howmuchpermile?
County ..............585 cents
City................. 445cents
Schools............... 55 cents

The county commission, the clerk
of court and their employees are paid
a reimbursement for government-relat-
ed travel, said Sue Butler of the Office
of Management and Budget and Mary
Potochnik, the clerk's chief financial
services deputy. That's up a full 10
cents from last year's mileage rate,
mostly due to higher gasoline prices.
Butler said the mileage rate is set at
the beginning of each fiscal year- Oct
1 - and remains the same until it is
reviewed the following year.
The total budget for county com-
mission travel this year is $171,040,

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County has returned more
than $21,000 in impact fees since
November after missing the deadline
to use the money on new growth. The
fees were all returned to SEDA
Construction Co., a Jacksonville-based
homebuilder.
Impact fees, which are charged to
builders for new construction, are
used to fund local projects such as
roads and parks. However, Florida
statute requires the fees be spent only
on new growth - a nebulous defini-
tion that has become onerous in the
pat lor thioeL.htiltempiting ti justify fee
expenditurt-s
Nas;au County currently has about
$10 million in unspent impact fees.
However, county ordinance stipulates
that the fees must be used within six
years or else refunded upon request.


Holloway


Crawford


The county commission may by reso-
lution extend the time allowed for
spending the fees, but did not do so in
the case of those charged to SEDA
Construction.
County Coordinator Ed Sealover
said keeping up with which impact
fees are not being spent is a constant
task. "We do a monthly report on
impact fees - on which ones are aging,

We re a local


newspaper

A very nice and charming resident who
grew up in Old Town, paid me a visit the
other day.
She stated she is a lifelong and loyal
reader of the News-Leader, and I appreciate
that very much.
Her concern was why we had not cov-
ered the death of the "King of Pop" Michael
Jackson.
I tried to explain that the News-Leader
has been and is a "hyper-local" newspaper,
focusing entirely on the
people, places and news of
the communities in
S Nassau County.
She then went on to
S mention the fact that we
didn't cover the election of
our 44th president, Barack
Obama, in a timely man-
ner. And stated she had
MY VIEW serious doubts about my
news judgment.
S � " 1 Again I attempted to
Ea / nqi-explainm-rfwe are iUc' ,De
if- ti!/kli rfn-4"'local" newspaper toTo,-; .~,
S avail.
No doubt the election of President
Barack Obama.and the death of Michael
Jackson are huge international news stories
and both are very newsworthy. But unless
there's a local connection you won't find
much national or international news in the
pages of the News-Leader. For example, if a
local memorial service were held for
Michael we would cover it.
Michael was no doubt the greatest enter-
tainer and influential artist the world has
ever seen. Who alive today hasn't heard or
seen the videos of The Jackson Five,
"Thriller," "Beat It," "Bad" or "Billie Jean?"
His music will live on forever.
I enjoyed my conversation with her - she
was passionate about our absence of cover-
age and Michael Jackson.
I was raised to Pespect all people and
their views. What hurt me the most during
my conversation with her is she made the
point that even though I'm a native
Floridian and have been a resident of
Fernandina Beach for 14 years I'm still con-
sidered in her mind - an outsider.
Ouch!

Is our'Fernandina For Sale'?


Imagine a focits group of i(0) local residents
assembled to discuss quality of life issues.
You remember the phrase "quality of life,"
although fading from the vocabularies of
local elected officials and completely absent
from recent local political campaigns, it still
exists, and for me is more relevant than ever.
Suppose the focus group's facilitator asks,
"How many of you believe that quality of life is
important to a community?" Thirty hands go
up. "Well, how many of you believe that
Fernandina Beach has a special, unique quali-
ty of life that makes it different from other
Florida coastal communities?" Again, 30 hands
go up. "OK, lets get to the heart of things, who
among you can define quality of life?" Thirty
hands immediately fly skyward and for the
next 10 minutes the facilitator is kept busy
maintaining order among the 30 shouting par-
ticipants.
Defining quality of life is tough; we have
12,500 people living in Fernandina Beach and
each one's feelings and beliefs about the sub-
ject are shaped by their own experiences and
,expectations.
My own definition of quality of life -
remember, we're talking about community
quality of life - includes several elements, or
factors: 1) a commitment to real growth man-
agement, reflected in the city's
Comprehensive Plan, Future Land Use Map,
land development codes and land development
regulations; 2) creating, enhancing, maintain-
ing and preserving as many public facilities,
including parks, green and open space and nat-
ural areas, as possible; 3) maintaining and
ensuring current and future public access to
those areas; 4) maintaining and enhancing
local infrastructure; 5) maintaining and


F- . enhancing current levels of
\. service regarding public safe-
S ly and recreation; and 6)
S... keeping local taxes and fees
1 n manageable for middle and
. ' lower-income individuals and
families.
I know, what about this
factor, or that one? Well, this
DEBATE is my definition; you have
yours, and my hope is, being
AND a devotee of participatory
TACKLE democracy, we can seriously
discuss our differences,
maybe even reach communi-
Ron Sapp ty consensus. If we don't
have these discussions, if we
don't insist that quality of life considerations
matter, if we continue to allow local politicians'
to be "soft" on quality of life issues, then we
abandon the political decision-making process
to the "economic argument," and believe me,
for our community that would be a disaster.
What's the economic argument? Well,
there are those who believe that the primary
consideration', the key factor, some even say
the sole factor that is absolutely essential in
local political decision-making, is economics,
or how will the decision regarding legislation,
policy or project impact our community eco-
nomically. Positively? Do it. Negatively? Don't
do it. Economics-neutral? We don't care.
Cynics say it's "Fernandina For Sale!" I'm a
cynic. Consider the following comparisons
regarding the quality of life and economics
arguments:
* Density. Quality of life: maintain current
or, preferably, lower. Economics: increase.
* More parks and green/open space.


Quality of life: certainly. Economics: no.
* Discouraging development of environ-
mentally sensitive areas (wetlands, dunes, pris-
tine, undeveloped islands - remember Crane
Island?). Quality of life: no, never. Economics:
sure.
* Noise ordinance that protects residential
areas (the old quiet enjoyment of property
concept). Quality of life: in favor. Economics:
oppose..
* More condos along our oceanfront, our
downtown waterfront. Quality of life: no.
Economics: hmmm, offensive, but brings in a
lot of money, sure.
So, do you believe that quality of life is
important to a community? Do you believe that
Fernandina Beach has a special, unique quali-
ty of life that makes us different from other
Florida coastal communities? How do you
define quality of life?
All of this is important, you see, because if
our community is special, if it is different from
other Florida coastal communities, then it's
going to take work to stay that way. It's going
to mean making calls to local officials, e-mail-
ing them, attending public meetings and get-
ting involved politically.
The phrase quality of life is fading from the
vocabularies of local political officials and it's
been absent from local political campaigns
because we've allowed it be so. Politicians
without core quality of life values and beliefs
respond to one thing and one thing only, the
perception of political risk. Evidently, most
have perceived little or no political risk in
aligning themselves exclusively with the "eco-
nomics argument." We "quality of lifers" have
to create it.

Boondoggle
Mike Boyle is full of crip ("'Slanted story'
unfair to county officials," June 24). It's a boon-
doggle, paid for by the taxpayers, and he knows
that.
Ann Chappell

Be careful whatyou wish for
I do agree that the building department is cur-
rently overstaffed ("County gets it," June 26). The
management has endeavored to hold on to per-
sonnel since it took many years to assemble a
competent and efficient staff. It was not long
ago in this paper you were often printing stories
of how much trouble it was to get a project
through the county. I can only assume that is
what you want once again.
In my six years in the building department I
have watched for most of them the inability to
hire qualified inspectors and plans examiners. In
most cases when we did hire someone, they had
to spend months in state bureaucracy and taking
; ieens toAfially get fylly qualified.
i1, i~-~,~loyMty states that "businesses have been
carrying that burden." But the building depart-
ment has had its fees cut for a year now.
I can remember having 50 and 60 inspec-
tions, working till 7 and 8 at night just to keep up.
With this the quality of inspections decreased
(you cannot be diligent when you are running).
The choice was simple, do them today or have
some from today roll over and be added to the
pile the next day. A lose/lose proposition.
Now, the commissioners halved the fees to
stimulate.construction. OK, so tell me what
builder cares about saving $2,000 to build a
house he has reduced in price $30,000 and even
if he builds it, has a poor chance at best of sell-
ing it. If he builds it, he has to pay the bank each
month for it. In one or two months the building
fee reduction is wiped out.
What you applaud is like the vendors on
Centre Street deciding they will slash their prices
in half. They sell stuff but can't survive.
According to you, they should cut their staff to
where the customers can't get decent service and
they cannot survive. How long does this work?
Sounds like a foolhardy business model to me.
The building departments all over the state
are exclusively self-funding. They do not get tax
money. Only the builders and people working on
their homes and businesses pay for building
department services. Cutting their fees will not
decrease the county tax roll or their budget a
cent. The Building Department actually pays
the Nassau County Commission rent for the
building they occupy. The state legislature did
this to take politics out of building inspection. The
commission has the right to set the fees. Thus
they have. In a year or so I hope you remember
this when you write about the problems people
have getting inspections, plans approved and
permits issued.
As for impact fees, another writer seemed to
think that changing a nice old home into a restau-
rant was not much of an impact. Here we go:
When it was a house, let's assume there were
four cars that came and left four times a day: 16
trips. Now it's a cafe and there are 10 tables
(conservative) and they turn over every hour for
five hours (5-10 p.m., no lunch). Assuming all
table guests come in one car you have 10 x 5 =
50 trips. Then you add the owner and his staff.
And you add deliveries (trucks); also, the staff
has housing needs and kids. Add new roads and
schools (some impact), these extra people need
police and fire protection, they drive the roads to
stores and stuff. There is a pretty good impact
and I am being conservative.
Of course, you can be like Orlando, Disney
came and they didn't add impact fees until 15-plus
years later. What did they get? Horrible roads, toll
roads (since they have no money for roads)
schools with portable classrooms that do not go
away. Boone High School when my son attend-
ed had no fewer than 30 portables scattered all
over the campus and the track. This is the norm
there. Go drive I-4 through Orlando any time
from 5 a.m. to 9 at night and it is hellish. Beware
what you ask for.
Please remember that if you cut services too
much, you end up with no service!

26) the writer states, "The toll of 6,000 men com-
mitting suicide in our armed forces each year is
a testament to the stupidity of war, period."
Again this seemed like an extremely high
number, so I did a quick check online and at
the Centers For Disease Control & Prevention
I found the following.
"The VA estimates that 18 vets a day - or
6,500 a year - take their own lives, but that num-
ber includes vets from all wars."

Profit
First on the list Nassau had the debate over
the landfill garbage - can't afford to run it, sell
out to private industry to haul waste but of coun-
ty. Next it's the golf course - can't maintain it, sell
to private industry? The marina cost overrun -
sell to private industry, make it transient only. But
you have the Goffinsville project under way and
there will be a special needs park under way.
When you turn things over to private industry a
profit must be made. I just wanted to point out
that they increased this year's budget by some
millions of dollars; you can look up the budget
facts for future projects. It just seemed to me if
you can't afford to maintain what you have, why
build more.
Just a thought: The eight flags may turn into
nine flags of Fernandina. Be careful.

Monetizing the deficit?
Is there no other way to deal with the nation-
al deficit than to declare it to be money (mone-
tize it) ? This might avoid the necessity of having
to dealing with it as debt. However, can such a
non-sequitur of concepts once again serve as
the backbone and keystone of our nation's fis-
cal policy? True, Alexander Hamilton set a prece-
dent for this approach early on. But we were
not a major player then. To be on the safe side
these early patriots also rescued their Continental
Currency.
What money is and how it behaves is a func-
tion of our common expectations, our contracts
and our laws. The coining of terms in econom-
ics generally reflects the descriptive and pre-
scriptive nature of the discipline. As an advo-
cate of a new approach I have invented some
terms and definitions to help ease the federal gov-
ernment away from the shoals of insolvency.
A universal catalyst is a more apt view of
money than the oft-proposed scarce-commodity
ploy which is most often slept through. Ideally
money is also a scorecard for wealth. Money or
wealth may be found on-the-clock of mankind,
active, like water. But just as importantly money
or wealth may be found on-the-clock of geolog-
ical time, dormant, like ice. Any project to inno-
vate or renovate starts with a dream but doesn't
end with the last payment on associated loans.
Time is needed before any review can be carried
out and time is needed to allow the acquired


improvements to serve their purpose.
This is only the beginning of a defense for
keeping paid up loans in an interest free category
for a period of aging. While frozen money is
linked to a loan, its off-the-clock of mankind sta-
tus can be used to limit the need for the U.S. gov-
ernment to float bonds to raise money to cover
the interest on the national deficit.
As the borrower of last recourse the federal
government is also linked to a debt that is frozen.
The money frozen in the deficit is as important
to the economy as the ice and snowcap of
Antarctica is to the weather. Money or wealth also
serves which in frozen glaciers wait.

Fish tale
My boyfriend says all the time that there are
six or more reasons why women should not fish:
One being on the boat that I go in reverse when
he says forward; 2) I go left when he says right;
3) I am in forward reviving the boat while he is
pushing it off the trailer to go into the water in
reverse -whoops; and 4) turn left when he says
right; 5) not close enough to land yet I see mud;
6) throwing him off the boat when all I meant to
do is just that!
Please let all men know that we as women do
only what they say when they have been drinking'
.lots of Buds - so who is the real driver? So for all
you men like mine, don't forget your bait at
home and it is really embarrassing'to be the
women in the truck backing down the boat and
you men screaming at us telling us "Back down!"
and you're the bright one that left the boat
hooked to the trailer. Yet we still seem to get the
tail end of it - my session of fissin'- but I will be
back if let be.

Conscious effort
Whatever happened to the good old days
when the worst things we had to fear on the
Fourth of July were traffic jams and wayward fire-
works? Now, our greatest threat lurks in food poi-
soning by nasty E. coli and salmonella bugs in
inadequately grilled hamburgers and hot dogs.
Unfortunately, the high-temperature grilling that
kills these bugs also forms cancer-causing com-
pounds.
Luckily, enterprising food nanufacturers.and
processors have met this challenge with a great
variety of healthful, delicious veggie burgers
and soy dogs.
These new foods don't harbor nasty
pathogens or cancer-dausing compounds. They
don't even carry cholesterol, saturated fats,
drugs or pesticides. And they are available in the
frozen food section of every supermarket.
This Fourth of July offers a great opportuni-
ty to declare our independence from the meat
industry and to share wholesome veggie burg-
ers and soy dogs with our family and friends.

Fire is visible Friday from the eaves of a three-story house on

Did noise law effort begin



with Sunshine Law error?


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
A city violation of the state's
Sunshine Law may have given lever-
age to the Florida House Inn in its
lawsuit against the city, according to
the president of the First Amendment
Foundation.
Joe and Diane Warwick, owners of
the Florida House Inn on South Third
Street, brought the suit against the
city in April 2008, complaining of spot-
ty and unequal enforcement of two
city ordinances.
A controversial February settle-
ment of the lawsuit absolved the
Warwicks of more than $100,000 in
liens levied by the city for neon sign
ordinance violations and included a
special provision to settle a noise ordi-
nance dispute between the Florida
House and the neighboring Green
Turtle Tavern.
As a result, the noise ordinance
has been rewritten several times, been
the topic of numerous contentious
public hearings and is set for a final
vote July 14.
The alleged Sunshine Law viola-


The city agreed to 'provide an
educational memorandum to commis-
sioners regarding (Sunshine Laws).'
CITY ATTORNEY TAMMI BACH


tion occurred during a closed attor-
ney/client session in January 2008
that concerned a possible foreclosure
action between the city and property
owner Bert Austin.
All city commissioners were pres-
ent as well as City Attorney Tammi
Bach, City Manager Michael Czymbor
and litigation counsel Jeffrey
Tomassetti, who was representing the
city's code enforcement board.
Attorney Barbara Petersen, presi-
dent of the First Amendment
Foundation, .headquartered in
Tallahassee, said one of the conditions
for a closed session is that its subject
matter must have been properly
noticed to the public, among other
requirements.
The subject matter - which was


the Austin case - was indeed proper-
ly noticed. But during the session the
Florida House - an unrelated case -
was brought up by attorneys Bach and
Tomassetti. Petersen says the fact that
there was no pending city litigation
with the Florida House may have been
an additional violation.
Petersen noted that city commis-
sioners would be the only ones in vio-
lation of the Sunshine Law, even if
they did not enter the discussion.
"The commissioners are the ones
who are required to comply with the
law," said Petersen. "The city attorney
should be providing them with the
best advice, but is not subject to the
Sunshine Law."

County pays best



for job car travel

News-Leader


Nassau County government
employees who use their personal vehi-
cles for work are reimbursed at a rate
of more than half a dollar per mile trav-
eled. City employees are reimbursed at
a lower rate.
A survey of local government agen-
cies reveals:
* Nassau County elected officials
and employees receive 58.5 cents per
mile for travel related to their jobs.
* County school officials and
employees receive 55 cents per mile for
using their personal vehicles in work-
,.related travel.
* City elected officials and employ-
ees receive 44.5 cents per mile for job-
related travel.
County elected officials and their
employees have received 58.5 cents
per mile since October in reimburse-
ment for use of their personal vehi-
cles, according to the Office of
Management and Budget.


How much per mile?
County............ 585 cents
City........... 445 cents
Schools............... 55cents

The county commission, the clerk
of court and their employees are paid
a reimbursement for government-relat-
ed travel, said Sue Butler of the Office
of Management and Budget and Mary
Potochnik, the clerk's chief financial
services deputy. That's up a full 10
cents from last year's mileage rate,
mostly due to higher gasoline prices.
Butler said the mileage rate is set at
the beginning of each fiscal year - Oct
1 - and remains the same until it is
reviewed the following year.
The total budget for county com-
mission travel this year is $171,040,

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County has returned more
than $21,000 in impact fees since
November after missing the deadline
to use the money on new growth. The
fees were all returned to SEDA
Construction Co., a Jacksonville-based
homebuilder.
Impact fees, which are charged to
builders for new construction, are
used to fund local projects such as
roads and parks. However, Florida
statute requires the fees be spent only
on new growth - a nebulous defini-
tion that has become onerous in the
past for thoseOt tempting to justify fee
expenditures.
Nassau County currently has about
$10 million in unspent impact fees.
However, county ordinance stipulates
that the fees must be used within six
years or else refunded upon request.


. -466






Holloway Crawford

The county commission may by reso-
lution extend the time allowed for
spending the fees, but did not do so in
the case of those charged to SEDA
Construction.
County Coordinator Ed Sealover
said keeping up with which impact
fees are not being spent is a constant
task. "We do a monthly report on
impact fees - on which ones are aging,

Settlement agreement
The settlement agreement reached in February
between plaintiff The Florida House Inn, Inc., and the city
of Fernandina Beach (including Fred Lindes, code enforce-
ment officer, and the city Code Enforcement Board) includ-
ed these special provisions:
A) Parties agree to a joint meeting with State Attorney
Angela Corey to discuss the current city noise ordinance
and possible alternatives. After the meeting, the city will
take all necessary steps to adopt, amend and/or enforce
its noise ordinance.
B) City agrees to investigate occupancy limits and relat-
ed restroom facilities as well as compliance with general
code and permitting requirements of businesses within the
Historic District, as well as permitting misrepresentations.
Inspections shall take place during meaningful times so as
to fully evaluate the business use.
C) City will release all liens and fines for plaintiff's sign
violation to date.
D) The city will provide an educational memorandum to
commissioners regarding Chapter 286, Florida Statutes
(Sunshine Laws).
E) The above will be completed within 60 days from this
date.
F) The parties agree that they will maintain confidentiali-
ty of the mediation terms and any discussion regarding the
sign ordinance and the noise ordinance.
G) The city will not pursue sign violations against the
plaintiff under the current sign ordinance. Plaintiff will relo-
cate the two southernmost neon signs to the interior of the
building behind the dripline of the porch. All four signs will
thereafter be considered conforming signs.


SUNSHINE
Continued from 1A
According to a transcript
of the session, Bach, while
talking about code violations,
first brought up the Florida
House Inn's sign ordinance
case.
Later in the session
Tomassetti mentioned a house
- not Austin's property the
city had tried to condemn. He
also said, a little later, "... the
case of the Florida House is fit-
ting because ... they hold an
occupational license from the
city, that is, a license that is a
privilege to operate." '
"I wonder, in their case,"
Tomassetti went on, "maybe
not to collect the fines, but just
say, 'You take that sign down
or we're revoking your occu-
pational license and you're not
going to be open any more.'
I'm just throwing that out."
Then-commissioner Joe
Gerrity was the only one to
question the propriety of talk-
ing about unrelated subject
matters.
"Are we moving off of the
- is this included in the exec-
utive session, the Florida
House?" Gerrity asked, but
got no response to his ques-
tion.
Petersen said comiiis-
sioners do not have to actuilhi
ly participate in conversation
to be in violation of the
Sunshine Law - they only
have to be present. She also
said that any action taken as a
result of that violation could
become null and void - includ-
ing, conceivably, any settle-
ments that came out of the
meeting.
"It sounds as if the meet-
ing was problematic," said
Petersen. "They're on thin ice."
Bach conceded last week
that part of the settlement
between the Florida House
and the city was a result of a
possible Sunshine Law viola-
tion. It states in part that the
city "will provide an educa-
tional memorandum to com-
-missioners regarding Chap.
286, Florida Statutes
(Sunshine Laws)."
Petersen said members of
a closed session are required
by state statute to limit dis-
cussion to "settlement negoti-
ations or strategy sessions
related to litigation expendi-
tures."
Members of a closed ses-
sion also are "not allowed to
have free-range conversation"
about clients or lawsuits,
Petersen said. This restriction
may have been violated by
then-mayor Bruce Malcolm
when he called Joe Warwick
"a convicted felon." Then-vice
mayor Ken Walker also noted
during the session that
Warwick was arrested for
"selling illegal prescriptions"
and wondered out loud "who
holds that liquor license" at
the inn.
Warwick, a licensed phar-
macist, was sentenced in
Federal District Court in April
2000 to five years' probation, a
$1,000 fine and 100 hours of
community service after plead-

ing guilty to a federal fraud
charge. He was accused of pay-
ing kickbacks to physicians
for referrals of patients in the
federal Tricare program for
military retirees and Medicare
program.
Petersen acknowledged
that nobody but a judge could
determine whether there were
any actual violations of the
Sunshine Law during the
closed session. However, the
Florida House Inn did use the
possible violation as part of its
lawsuit against the city, say-
ing the city had "plotted
against the Florida House
Inn."
The lawsuit further states
that "a large portion of the
(Jan. 22 closed session) focus-
es on the Florida House Inn's
mounting sign fines and the
city's potential responses."
Bach said the city did not,
in the end, foreclose on
Austin's Florida Avenue prop-
erty.
The closed-session exemp-
tion to public meetings "is
probably the most abused
exemption," Petersen said,
because its.conditions can be
complicated, and "local gov-
ernments have been trying to
loosen it up."
"The commissioners take
an oath that they will uphold
i the Constitution," Petersen
said. "Ignorance is no excuse.';

TRAVEL Continued from 1A
up from $164,884 last year.
That amount includes reim-
bursement for mileage, hotels
and meals, Butler said. The
clerk's travel budget
decreased, from $84,520 last
year to $57,014 this year.
Both the clerk's and the
commission's mileage rates are
based on the rates paid to fed-
eral employees by the U.S.
General Services Administra-
tion.
Nassau County School
Board officials and employees
are allotted 55 cents per mile in
reimbursement for use of their
personal vehicles, according
to Executive Director of
Business Services Susan
Farmer.
That's down from 58.5 cents
from June 1-Dec. 31, 2008,
Farmer said. The rate was to
be reevaluated again today,
July 1.
Farmer said the per mile
. reimbursement is set based on
the federal Internal Revenue


FEES Continued from 1A
meaning we haven't spent the
money in the time frame that
the ordinance requires," he
said.
The county has a history
of difficulty finding projects
upon which to spend impact
fees. For a project to qualify
for impact fee expenditure, it
has to pass the state's "dual
rational nexus test," a process
that has been called
"Byzantine" by County
Attorney David Hallman.
"The first test is that they're
legal to take," Interim County
Engineer Jonathan Page said
Thursday. "And the next test to
see if impact fees can be used
is, does it benefit the people
who paid them?"
County Clerk John
Crawford, however, said the
county should be able to find
ways to spend the money.
"We went to great lengths
as a government to enact a law
to collect money, with the
promise that that money
would be spent to enact
growth, and it would be spent
within the confines of the law
within six years," Crawford
said. "That's a promise that
was broken by the govern-
ment in that they didn't spend
that money, and they must
return it to the payers. The
payers paid that money in
good faith, and they have
every right to expect that
money back when that prom-
ise is not fulfilled by the gov-
ernment.
"I believe you could spend
every dime of them legiti-
mately, credibly, defensibly - if
you'd just do the justifications
as are required in law," he
added.
Commission Chair Barry
Holloway, long a proponent of
spending the fees, acknowl-

Service rate, which is reviewed
every six months, and might or
might not fluctuate.
The total budget for school
board travel for 2008-9 is
$359,300, of which $177,732
has been spent to date. The
budget for 2007-8 was
$566,844, of which $323,726
was spent.
. The budget covers travel
for itinerant teachers between
schools, travel to and from pro-
fessional development activi-
ties, staff training and trips to
various conferences, Farmer
said.
She also noted that, .in an
attempt to reduce costs,
employees use county vehicles
rather than personal vehicles
when possible. Additionally,
she said a rental agreement in
place with .Enterprise Rent-A-
Car is aimed at reducing
expenses.
According to City Finance
Director Patti Clifford, all city
employees are reimbursed
44.5 cents per mile if they use
their own vehicle on a job-relat-


edged the problem. "Either
the (county) attorney didn't
sign off on it, or the clerk did-
n't sign off on it, or we were
going after projects that didn't
qualify for impact fees. I don't
think it's anything that the
commissioners did or didn't
do," he said. "I don't think it's
been any one individual - just
basically lack of taking it for-
ward enough to get it done.
The ultimate responsibility
lays with the Board of County.
Commissioners, which is why
I've been so vocal for the last
two years."
However, Holloway said,
the commission is taking steps
to find suitable projects for the
fees. "All five commissioners
have met privately with
Jonathan (Page) and our con-
sultant to identify impact fee
projects and get them spent,"
he said.
Page said Thursday he had
been working with
Jacksonville firm King
Engineering to find eligible
projects. "Right now we're

City employees, such as the
city manager, who regularly
drive city-owned vehicles do
not receive mileage reim-

Clifford said the city's
mileage reimbursement rate
is based on the state's
Department of Revenue and
has not been changed since
"some time in 2007." Some
municipalities, she said, base
their mileage reimbursement
on Internal Revenue Service
standards, which are higher
and can change as often as
twice a year.
The city does not track the

Clifford said. Rather, all

home fire

No one was hurt, but about
$200,000 damage was done
Monday evening to a house that
caught fire as a result of a light-
ning strike.
Fernandina Beach Fire-
Rescue Department was dis-
patched to the residential struc-
ture fire at 2811 Magnolia
Woods Court about 6:17 p.m.,
city Fire Chief Daniel Hanes
said in a press release.
Firefighters reported there
was heavy smoke and flames
coming from the roof of the
single-family dwelling. They
used ground ladders to reach
the roof of the house and
operated above the fire that
was spreading through the
attic. They were eventually
able to achieve control by cut-
ting a hole in the roof to control
the fire spread and gain
access to extinguish it, Hanes
said.
The occupants, a couple
and their pet dog, were able to
escape without injury. During a
search of the house, firefighters
found the family's cat
unharmed and hiding under a
bed.
It took 15 firefighters
approximately 45 minutes to
bring the fire under control.
Heavy rains, flooding and
wind damage also was reported
as a severe storm swept
through the area.
A fallen tree blocked First
Coast Highway, among other
damage reports.

FBHS is among top



schools in the U.S.


et cuts, teacher
reassignments and
school closings are
the predominant themes in
public education here, there
are still exemplary perform-
ances in the classroom.
Fernandina Beach High
School catapulted up the rank-
ings in the annual Newsweek
magazine list of top high
schools in the U.S. FBHS
appeared as the 512th best
high school, improving its
standing dramatically from
No. 908 last year.
FBHS has been ranked in
the top 1,000 high schools for
the last three years. The
school's emphasis on
Advanced Placement courses
for its top-performing stu-
dents has established it as one
of the country's elite schools.
The Newsweek poll is based
upon the percentage of stu-
dents taking AP as well as
other upper-level classes and
exams. This year, the criteria
changed slightly. It also
judged the number of stu-
dents achieving a minimum
score on AP exams, for
instance.
The Newsweek rankings
began in 1998. Other

this year's
list include:

Wolfson, No.


154; Mandarin, No. 159;
Sandalwood, No. 217; and
Bartram Trail, No. 425.
FBHS's ranking of 512
truly places it among the ultra-
elite schools in this area as
well as nationally. To place just
behind larger, prestigious
public schools such as
Bartram Trail, Sandalwood
and Nease is no easy task.
During these difficult
financial times that call for
leaner schools and less
resources, it is inspiring to see
a presiding emphasis and
focus on excellence in the
classroom. FBHS principal
Jane Arnold and her staff
should be once again com-


mended for bringing national
attention to the local school
district.
Meanwhile, other schools
in Nassau County also moved
to the head of their classes
this year with improved
scores on state exams. The
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, or more
commonly known as FCAT, is
given each year to certain
grade levels in the state.
Nine of the county public
schools earfied the highest
grade of an "A" - including
the relatively new Yulee High
School.
The grades for each school
are based upon a point sys-
tem, derived from student
scores. Nassau County
schools received one fewer
"A" than last year, but still
fared quite respectfully - with
9 of 12 earning top grades.
Among the high schools
here, Yulee High improved
from a "D" score last year to
an "A" this year.
Yulee was the only local
high school to score below a
"B" last year, but the only one
of the lot to score a top grade
this year.
FBHS's score dropped to a
"C" this year, from an "A" last
year. West Nassau scored a
"D" and Hilliard Senior High
earned a "B." Nassau schools
preserved their overall "A"
rating and scored among the
top districts in the state.
That is quite an accom-
'plishment for a rural school
district strapped with declin-
ing revenues and state sup-
port. Local schools get more
than just a top grade for per-
formance - they also get an
"A" for effort

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/PAT KEOGH/FERNANDINA BEACH


Public
R on Sapp's June 17
article regarding the
management of our
golf course and mari-
na invited other views.
Mr. Sapp's perspective of
the alternatives is rather typi-
cal with respect to important
public assets. Either govern-
ment manages and controls
the assets or government leas-
es or sells to a private entity. I
tend to think of the options as
a wide spectrum of choices
and I usually dispose of the
standard two out of hand. Let
me tell you why city manage-
ment of complex public assets
makes no sense to me and
shouldn't to Mr. Sapp.
Suppose the Sapp Family
Foundation owned the marina
and golf course. Would Ron
and his family consider the
city as a prospective asset
manager from among all the
management options avail-
able? Of course not! Then
why, if those assets are owned
by the city would anyone seri-

about a process for getting to
the solution that works best
for all parties to the deal.

be approached. By the way,

No doubt the election of President
Barack Obama.and the death of Michael
Jackson are huge international news stories
and both are very newsworthy. But unless
there's a local connection you won't find
much national or international news in the
pages of the News-Leader. For example, if a
local memorial service were held for
Michael we would cover it.
Michael was no doubt the greatest enter-
tainer and influential artist the world has
ever seen. Who alive today hasn't heard or
seen the videos of The Jackson Five,
'Thriller," "Beat It," "Bad" or "Billie Jean?"
His music will live on forever.
I enjoyed my conversation with her - she
was passionate about our absence of cover-
age and Michael Jackson.
I was raised to Bespect all people and
their views. What hurt me the most during
my conversation with her is she made the
point that even though I'm a native
Floridian and have been a resident of
Fernandina Beach for 14 years I'm still con-
sidered in her mind - an outsider.
Ouch!

Is our 'Fernandina For Sale'?


Imagine a focus group of 30 local residents
assembled to discuss quality of life issues.
You remember the phrase "quality of life,"
although fading from the vocabularies of
local elected officials and completely absent
from recent local political campaigns, it still
exists, and for me is more relevant than ever.
Suppose the focus group's facilitator asks,
"How many of you believe that quality of life is
important to a community?" Thirty hands go
up. "Well, how many of you believe that
Fernandina Beach has a special, unique quali-
ty of life that makes it different from other
Florida coastal communities?" Again, 30 hands
go up. "OK, lets get to the heart of things, who
among you can define quality of life?" Thirty
hands immediately fly skyward and for the
next 10 minutes the facilitator is kept busy
maintaining order among the 30 shouting par-
ticipants.
Defining quality of life is tough; we have
12,500 people living in Fernandina Beach and
each one's feelings and beliefs about the sub-
ject are shaped by their own experiences and
expectations.
My own definition of quality of life -
remember, we're talking about community
quality of life - includes several elements, or
factors: 1) a commitment to real growth man-
agement, reflected in the city's
Comprehensive Plan, Future Land Use Map,
land development codes and land development
regulations; 2) creating, enhancing, maintain-
ing and preserving as many public facilities,
including parks, green and open space and nat-
ural areas, as possible; 3) maintaining and
ensuring current and future public access to
those areas; 4) maintaining and enhancing
local infrastructure; 5) maintaining and


, , }





DEBATE
AND


enhancing current levels of
service regarding public safe-
ty and recreation; and 6)
keeping local taxes and fees
manageable for middle and
lower-income individuals and
families.
I know, what about this
factor, or that one? Well, this
is my definition; you have
yours, and my hope is, being
a devotee of participatory


TACKLE democracy, we can seriously
discuss our differences,
maybe even reach communi-
Ron Sapp ty consensus. If we don't
have these discussions, if we
don't insist that quality of life considerations
matter, if we continue to allow local politicians'
to be "soft" on quality of life issues, then we
abandon the political decision-making process
to the "economic argument," and believe me,
for our community that would be a disaster.
What's the economic argument? Well,
there are those who believe that the primary
consideration', the key factor, some even say
the sole factor that is absolutely essential in
local political decision-making, is economics,
or how will the decision regarding legislation,
policy or project impact our community eco-
nomically. Positively? Do it. Negatively? Don't
do it. Economics-neutral? We don't care.
Cynics say it's "Fernandina For Sale!" I'm a
cynic. Consider the following comparisons
regarding the quality of life and economics
arguments:
* Density. Quality of life: maintain current
or, preferably, lower. Economics: increase.
* More parks and green/open space.


Quality of life: certainly. Economics: no.
* Discouraging development of environ-
mentally sensitive areas (wetlands, dunes, pris-
tine, undeveloped islands - remember Crane
Island?). Quality of life: no, never. Economics:
sure.
* Noise ordinance that protects residential
areas (the old quiet enjoyment of property
concept). Quality of life: in favor. Economics:
oppose..
* More condos along our oceanfront, our
downtown waterfront. Quality of life: no.
Economics: hmmm, offensive, but brings in a
lot of money, sure.
So, do you believe that quality of life is
important to a community? Do you believe that
Fernandina Beach has a special, unique quali-
ty of life that makes us different from other
Florida coastal communities? How do you
define quality of life?
All of this is important, you see, because if
our community is special, if it is different from
other Florida coastal communities, then it's
going to take work to stay that way. It's going
to mean making calls to local officials, e-mail-
ing them, attending public meetings and get-
ting involved politically.
The phrase quality of life is fading from the
vocabularies of local political officials and it's
been absent from local political campaigns
because we've allowed it be so. Politicians
without core quality of life values and beliefs
respond to one thing and one thing only, the
perception of political risk. Evidently, most
have perceived little or no political risk in
aligning themselves exclusively with the "eco-
nomics argument." We "quality of lifers" have
to create it.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


'Boondoggle'
Mike Boyle is full of crap ("'Slanted story'
unfair to county officials," June 24). It's a boon-
doggle, paid for by the taxpayers, and he knows
that.
Ann Chappell
Fernandina Beach

Be careful whatyou wish for
I do agree that the building department is cur-
rently overstaffed ("County gets it," June 26). The
management has endeavored to hold on to per-
sonnel since it took many years to assemble a
competent and efficient staff. It was not long
ago in this paper you were often printing stories
of how much trouble it was to get a project
through the county. I can only assume that is
what you want once again.
In my six years in the building department I
have watched for most of them the inability to
hire qualified inspectors and plans examiners. In
most cases when we did hire someone, they had
to spend months in state bureaucracy and taking
-jegmns to.figlly get full) qualified.
i , i Movp y states that businessess have been
carrying that burden." But the building depart-
ment has had its fees cut for a year now.
I can remember having" 50 and 60 inspec-
tions, working till 7 and 8 at night just to keep up.
With this the quality of inspections decreased
(you cannot be diligent when you are running).
The choice was simple, do them today or have
some from today roll over and be added to the
pile the next day. A lose/lose proposition.
Now, the commissioners halved the fees to
stimulate construction. OK, so tell me what
builder cares about saving $2,000 to build a
house he has reduced in price $30,000 and even
if he builds it, has a poor chance at best of sell-
ing it. If he builds it, he has to pay the bank each
month for it. In one or two months the building
fee reduction is wiped out.
What you applaud is like the vendors on
Centre Street deciding they will slash their prices
in half. They sell stuff but can't survive.
According to you, they should cut their staff to
where the customers can't get decent service and
they cannot survive. How long does this work?
Sounds like a foolhardy business model to me.
The building departments all over the state
are exclusively self-funding. Th'ey do not get tax
money. Only the builders and people working on
their homes and businesses pay for building
department services. Cutting their fees will not
decrease the county tax roll or their budget a
cent. The Building Department actually pays
the Nassau County Commission rent for the
building they occupy. The state legislature did
this to take politics out of building inspection. The
commission has the right to set the fees. Thus
they have. In a year or so I hope you remember
this when you write about the problems people
have getting inspections, plans approved and
permits issued.
As for impact fees, another writer seemed to
think that changing a nice old home into a restau-
rant was not much of an impact. Here we go:
When it was a house, let's assume there were
four cars that came and left four times a day: 16
trips. Now it's a cafe and there are 10 tables
(conservative) and they turn over every hour for
five hours (5-10 p.m., no lunch). Assuming all
table guests come in one car you have 10 x 5 =
50 trips. Then you add the owner and his staff.
And you add deliveries (trucks); also, the staff
has housing needs and kids. Add new roads and
schools (some impact), these extra people need
police and fire protection, they drive the roads to
stores and stuff. There is a pretty good impact
and I am being conservative.
Of course, you can be like Orlando, Disney
came and they didn't add impact fees until 15-plus
years later. What did they get? Horrible roads, toll
roads (since they have no money for roads)
schools with portable classrooms that do not go
away. Boone High School when my son attend-
ed had no fewer than 30 portables scattered all
over the campus and the track. This is the norm
there. Go drive 1-4 through Orlando any time
from 5 a.m. to 9 at night and it is hellish. Beware
what you ask for.
Please remember that if you cut services too
much, you end up with no service!

Another'oops'
Another opinion letter seems to be a little
misleading or short on facts.
In the letter titled "Un-fond memories" (June


26) the writer states, "The toll of 6,000 men com-
mitting suicide in our armed forces each year is
a testament to the stupidity of war, period."
Again this seemed like an extremely high
number, so I did a quick check online and at
the Centers For Disease Control & Prevention
I found the following.
'The VA estimates that 18 vets a day - or
6,500 a year - take their own lives, but that num-
ber includes vets from all wars."
Bill Mattingly
Fernandina Beach

Profit
First on the list Nassau had the debate over
the landfill garbage - can't afford to run it, sell
out to private industry to haul waste out of coun-
ty. Next it's the golf course - can't maintain it, sell
to private industry? The marina cost overrun -
sell to private industry, make it transient only. But
you have the Goffinsville project under way and
there will be a special needs park under way.
When you turn things over to private industry a
profit must be made. I just wanted to point out
that they increased this year's budget by some
millions of dollars; you can look up the budget
facts for future projects. It just seemed to me if
you can't afford to maintain what you have, why
build more.
Just a thought: The eight flags may turn into
nine flags of Fernandina. Be careful.
Kenneth Cole
Fernandina Beach

Monetizing the deficit?
Is there no other way to deal with the nation-
al deficit than to declare it to be money (mone-
tize it)? This might avoid the necessity of having
to dealing with it as debt. However, can such a
non-sequitur of concepts once again serve as
the backbone and keystone of our nation's fis-
cal policy? True, Alexander Hamilton set a prece-
dent for this approach early on. But we were
not a major player then. To be on the safe side
these early patriots also rescued their Continental
Currency.
What money is and how it behaves is a func-
tion of our common expectations, our contracts
and our laws. The coining of terms in econom-
ics generally reflects the descriptive and pre-
scriptive nature of the discipline. As an advo-
cate of a new approach I have invented some
terms and definitions to help ease the federal gov-
ernment away from the shoals of insolvency.
A universal catalyst is a more apt view of
money than the oft-proposed scarce-commodity
ploy which is most often slept through. Ideally
money is also a scorecard for wealth. Money or
wealth may be found on-the-clock of mankind,
active, like water. But just as importantly money
or wealth may be found on-the-clock of geolog-
ical time, dormant, like ice. Any project to inno-
vate or renovate starts with a dream but doesn't
end with the last payment on associated loans.
Time is needed before any review can be carried
out and time is needed to allow the acquired


improvements to serve their purpose.
This is only the beginning of a defense for
keeping paid up loans in an interest free category
for a period of aging. While frozen money is
linked to a loan, its off-the-clock of mankind sta-
tus can be used to limit the need for the U.S. gov-
ernment to float bonds to raise money to cover
the interest on the national deficit.
As the borrower of last recourse the federal
government is also linked to a debt that is frozen.
The money frozen in the deficit is as important
to the economy as the ice and snowcap of
Antarctica is to the weather. Money or wealth also
serves which in frozen glaciers wait.

Fish tale
My boyfriend says all the time that there are
six or more reasons why women should not fish:
One being on the boat that I go in reverse when
he says forward; 2) I go left when he says right;
3) I am in forward revving the boat while he is
pushing it off the trailer to go into the water in
reverse - whoops; and 4) turn left when he says
right; 5) not close enough to land yet I see mud;
6) throwing him off the boat when all I meant to
do is just that!
Please let all men know that we as women do
only what they say when they have been drinking'
lots of Buds - so who is the real driver? So for all
you men like mine, don't forget your bait at
home and it is really embarrassing to be the
women in the truck backing down the boat and
you men screaming at us telling us "Back down!"
and you're the bright one that left the boat
hooked to the trailer. Yet we still seem to get the
tail end of it- my session of fissin' - but I will be
back if let be.

Conscious effort
Whatever happened to the good old days
when the worst things we had to fear on the
Fourth of July were traffic jams and wayward fire-
works? Now, our greatest threat lurks in food poi-
soning by nasty E. coli and salmonella bugs in
inadequately grilled hamburgers and hot dogs.
Unfortunately, the high-temperature grilling that
kills these bugs also forms cancer-causing com-
pounds.
Luckily, enterprising food manufacturers. and
processors have met this challenge with a great
variety of healthful, delicious veggie burgers
and soy dogs.
These new foods don't harbor nasty
pathogens or cancer-causing compounds. They
don't even carry cholesterol, saturated fats,
drugs or pesticides. And they are available in the
frozen food section of every supermarket.
This Fourth of July offers a great opportuni-
ty to declare our independence from the meat
industry and to share wholesome veggie burg-
ers and soy dogs with our family and friends.

Wonders never cease:



Wild mink on the beach


Wonders never
cease. The
longer I patrol
the natural areas
of Amelia Island the more I
feel like I am discovering
more "layers of the onion"
that surrounds us. Just one
walk on the beach yields sur-
prises for everyone. But after
dozens of dawn walks, I'm
still not surprised when I find
something new. Surprised,
no, but delighted - yes, of
course!
Nothing, though, can top
the delight I felt on a recent
beach stroll at Fort Clinch
State Park. It was just past
dawn and instead of walking
from the North End beach
parking lot to the Fort Clinch
pier and turning back, I decid-
ed to keep walking another
mile or so up the beach all the
way to the fort.
Along the way, I kept
watch for the least terns now
nesting again above the dune
line in an area posted with
signs to protect their nearly
invisible eggs from human
interlopers. The Wilsons
plovers that had hatched out
in this section of beach a
number of weeks ago were
still in juvenile plumage but
looking more and more like
adults. Here and there a tur-
tle nest was evident, laughing
gulls watched me warily as I
strode on by and the resident
great blue heron flew ahead
of me up the beach. All this
was great, of course, but not
unexpected. I've seen these
various species many times,
on many other beach walks,
all part of the circle of life that
makes Amelia Island a great
place to explore.
Coming back from the
fort, getting hot and tired and
wishing my car was not so far
away, I noticed something
strange. A smallish brown
blob that was not there on my
way up the beach now was on
the sand near a large washed

WAYS

Foster-Turley


up tree. It
looked like
something
alive, but
what?
Then the
blob moved.
Immediately
I recognized
the long,
furry shape
of a mink,
right there
in front of
me on the
beach. I am
aware that


mink live in our area. People
have seen them around the
city marina, and my husband
once saw on crossing
Jasmine Street near the
Egans Creek Greenway. On
various nearby islands Carl
Watson has pointed out tracks
that were most likely mink,
too.
But hearing about them is
one thing. Seeing one right in
front of me is another. I quick-
ly rustled to get my camera
focused and snapped a shot,
fully expecting the mink to
spot me and run away. But it
didn't spot me, or if it did, it'
didn't seem to care.
For precious minutes I fol-
lowed the mink down the
beach, shooting photos now
and again as it perused the
escarpment line looking for
food. Grasshoppers and crabs
were in abundance along the
bank and the little mink had
no problem filling his mouth
with these small prey items. A
marked turtle nest was near-
by, holding a reservoir of
tasty turtle eggs, but the
mink kept going past it, along
the bank, catching crabs.
Every now and then the
mink climbed up a sandy
berm and disappeared face
first into a ghost crab hole. It
was easy to sneak up on the
mink when it was in a hole
and I waited with my telepho-
to trained on the hole, shoot-


ing photos as it emerged cov-
ered with sand.
By now the mink knew I
was there, and once or twice
nearsightedly stared at me as
I tried to keep to a nonthreat-
ening distance. For the most
part, though, the mink was
just foraging for small prey
and not seeming very con-
cerned about me at all.
Finally, the mink took shel-
ter under an overhanging
bank, and I ventured even
closer to try to get more pho-
tos. This time I got close
enough to hear that chortling
growl, a threat warning, as
the mink faced me down from
its cornered position. Enough
was enough. Time to leave
the mink alone.
As I walked down the
beach toward my car, I forgot
that I was tired. Tired, heck! I
was euphoric! My thoughts
were full of this wild mink and
another mink, "Marvin, the
Minkman," as I called him
years ago at Marine World
Africa USA. Marvin was tame
and we used him for educa-
tional demonstrations. I
always felt sorry for this
active clever little life form
stuck in a cage and nearly
every day I let Marvin loose
in my office and happily lis-
tened to his gleeful chortles
as he explored the nooks and
crannies of my office and
played his pounce game with
me on the floor.
Having a captive tame
mink is one thing, but the
thrill of following a wild mink
is an experience of even high-
er magnitude. These little
otter-cousins are secretive
and mostly nocturnal and few
people ever get to see one in
the wild. But see one I did,
right here on our island. The
pictures tell the story. Enjoy!

ROBEI, I l 'Nw:S-l.IAI)I :
Smoke pours Friday from a three-story house on
Spring Tide Lane. Damage was estimated at
$350,000.



3 pet dogs saved

Fire and smoke damage
are estimated to have caused
$350,000 damage to a home
and personal contents in the
95000 block of Spring Tide
Lane on Amelia Island.
Nassau County Fire
Rescue responded to a report
of smoke about 6:15 p.m.
Engine 20 arrived within two
minutes to find heavy smoke
coming from the roof and
eaves of a three-story resi-
dence with light smoke com-
ing from the front door, the
fire department reported.
"All of the eastside units
and a unit from Callahan
were dispatched as was Fer-
nandina Beach Fire Depart-
ment, who provided mutual
aid with Engine 102," said Fire
Chief Chuck Cooper. "No one
was at home at the time of

The. fire was contained to
the third floor until it was
extinguished.
The home had smoke
damage throughout. The
cause of the fire is under inves-
tigation.
"This 5,200-square-foot
exclusive home overlooking
the marsh was built in 2003
and had a firewall built
between the adjacent mirror-


image residence," said Cooper.
"The firewall held throughout
extreme fire conditions and
saved the valuable home next
door."
The home is' currently
uninhabitable until repairs are
conducted.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 1,2009 NEWS News-Leader


POLICE REPORT


This was written by Jason
Yurgartis 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 guilt.
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
225-0147 in Yulee and
Fernandina Beach or 879-2136
in Callahan, Hilliard and
Bryceville. The "We Tip" pro-
gram - 1-800-78CRIME - also
allows callers to leave anony-
mous tips.

Battery arrest
Corey Franklin Smith, 33,
of 725 South 15th St.,
Fernandina Beach, was arrest-
ed for aggravated domestic bat-
tery about 8:23 p.m. June 28
following an altercation with his
mother's fiancee.
Fernandina Beach Police
were called to the home and
found Smith standing in the
driveway with scratched and
bloody hands. According to an
arrest report, Smith's mother
said her son was irate because
he couldn't find his belongings,
began using profanity toward
her, then punched her fiancee'
until he fell to the ground after
he asked Smith to stop scream-
ing.
Smith allegedly continued
the assault until his mother was
able to pull him off and call 911.
The fight continued until the
two were once again separated
and Smith stood outside the
home until police arrived.
Smith told police that his
mother's fiancee tried to choke
him twice, after which Smith
punched him in the face, then
four or five more times as the
man came at him. Smith said he
then headed for the front door
and dodged a kick from the


man before tripping him up and
heading outside.
Smith was taken to the
Nassau County Jail after receiv-
ing X-rays at Baptist Medical
Center Nassau, which revealed
a contusion on his right thumb.
The fiance, who authorities
later found out is deaf and suf-
fers from poor eyesight, was
transported to the hospital
where he was treated for a dis-
located shoulder and a cut on
his head that required staples.

Job scam
An unemployed Fernandina
Beach resident was the victim
of an apparent con game involv-
ing a job search website and
the state's unemployment
office.
According to a Nassau
County Sheriff's Office report,
the victim had signed up for
unemployment benefits and
was utilizing a website called
snagajob.com, both of which
required him to volunteer per-
sonal information which author-
ities believe was compromised.
The victim received an unso-
licited letter in the mail from a
company calling itself Fabcon
Incorporated offering him a job
as a mystery shopper. He also
received a check for $3,980 to
deposit to use as a mystery
shopper to evaluate the servic-
es of Wal-Mart and
Moneygram. He deposited the
check into his bank account,
withdrew the money and car-
ried on with evaluations of the
businesses as instructed.
Some time later, he received
another letter that said he had
won a $250,000 prize. The letter
included a check for $4,991 to
aid him in paying a "Non-
Canadian Residential Tax,"
insurance and delivery charges
for the prize money.
At this point the victim felt
he was being scammed. He ver-
ified with his bank that the
check had cleared, then con-
tacted Wal-Mart and

stabbings

JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

Two men were stabbed
over the weekend in unrelat-
ed incidents; one involved an
argument between two broth-
ers who live together, the
other an argument at a bar-
becue.
According to police,
Ramon Osario, 23, was stab-
bed by his brother, Rueben
Osario-Rodriguez, 29, about
2:45 a.m. Saturday following
an argument that began at a
friend's house on Starlight
Lane in Yulee, continued on
the ride home and culminat-
ed when things turned phys-
ical at their Lime Street apart-
ment in Fernandina Beach.
The only witness was the.
friend, who drove the two
home, and he could not say
what the argument was
about. But he told police he
saw the brothers begin
punching each other, then
said Osario-Rodriguez went
into the kitchen, grabbed an
object and came at his broth-
er. The victim then stumbled
to the door where he was
seen bleeding and was taken
to the Baptist Medical Center
Nassau emergency room by
the witness.
Ramon Osario was diag-
nosed with a collapsed lung
and taken to Shands Jackson-
ville. Osario-Rodriguez was
later located and arrested and
booked-at the Nassau County
Jail for aggravated domestic
battery.
The second stabbing hap-
pened about 1:20 a.m. Sunday
at 96174 O'Neil-Scott Road.
The Nassau County Sher-
iffs Office responded to a call
at Baptist Medical Center
Nassau, where deputies
spoke to a witness who drove
the victim, 53-year-old Lavar-
ina Lee Mitchell, to the emer-
gency room. The witness told
police the victim and 44-year-
old Reginal Leonard Baker
had an argument at the bar-
becue that turned physical
when Baker stabbed Mitchell
with a pocketknife.
Mitchell suffered internal
injuries and was flown by air
ambulance to Shands Jack-
sonville, where he was listed
in fair condition Tuesday.
The suspect was later
found at his home at 96071
Mt. Zion Loop in Yulee along
with a pocketknife matching
a witness description, accord-
ing to a police report.
Baker was arrested and
booked in the Nassau County
Jail for aggravated battery
with a deadly weapon.

Deputies shoot Yulee man


after domestic incident


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader
A Yulee man was in fair con-
dition Tuesday at a Jacksonville
hospital after he was shot early
Friday morning by Nassau
County Sheriff's Office
deputies.
The sheriff's office said
Fernando Dubose, 44,'was shot
after he pointed a rifle in the
direction of deputies during a
domestic violence investigation
involving his son at approxi-
mately 4:30 a.m.
The incident began when
deputies responded to a 911 call
about 3:08 a.m. reporting a
domestic battery at 852760 US
17 North in Yulee, and were
subsequently dispatched to
1973 Palm Drive in Fernandina
Beach where the victim sought
refuge.
The victim said her
boyfriend and the father of her
child, Stephen Dubose, started
a physical altercation with her


because she didn't find a job
earlier in the day. She said
things escalated at the Dubose
home, where the two live with
the suspect's parents, when
Stephen Dubose began pulling
her hair and poking her with
his index finger, then poured
milk and salt on her. When she
tried to leave the Yulee resi-
dence, he threw a steel-toe shoe
at her, striking her in the lower
right side of her back, an inci-
dent report said.
After speaking with the vic-
tim, deputies went to back to
Yulee to talk to Stephen Dubose
about the domestic violence
battery allegations. They
were greeted at the door by the
suspect's mother, Debra
Dubose, according to a press
release.
While advising her that they
needed to speak to her son, the
father of the suspect, Fernando
Dubose, came from the rear of
the home holding a flashlight,
brandishing a rifle and pointing

it at deputies. According to a
police report, the deputies and
a sergeant on the scene, who
were all in uniform, identified
themselves as law enforcement
officers and commanded him
to put down the gun. Fernando
Dubose then pointed the gun
at the sergeant, who dove to the
ground damaging his stun gun
and flashlight, the report said.
Two unidentified deputies
then fired at Dubose, striking
him once in the abdomen. After
being struck he entered the
home, then reappeared at the
front of the home soon after and
surrendered to deputies,
according to the sheriff's office.
A search revealed the rifle in
the bedroom of the home.
Fernando Dubose was taken
into custody and transported to
Shands Jacksonville. He was
booked at the hospital on
Saturday for aggravated assault
on a law enforcement officer,
resisting an officer with vio-
lence, both felonies, and improp-
er exhibition of a firearm, a mis-
demeanor.
Stephen Dubose was located
in the residence and booked
into the Nassau County Jail on
Friday for domestic battery, a
misdemeanor. He was released
on $1,502 bond on Saturday and
ordered to have no contact with
the victim.

FINALLY ITBLOOMS

Almadean Williams and her dog Gypsy pose in the backyard of Williams' Stanley
Drive home next to a century plant that recently bloomed. The plant's name is
derived from its habit of blooming infrequently. After it dies it re-grows itself from
shoots formed at its base. The plant is indigenous to Mexico and is rare in North
Florida and Williams said this is the first time in the two years she's lived at her
current home that she's seen it bloom.

The 2009-10 Pirates and Hornets are in action this summer, polishing their skills
for the upcoming high school basketball season. The Pirates hosted the Yulee

last season, lost two seniors but gained another player, Sean Jowers, above left, who
transferred from Bishop Kenny for his senior season. The Hornets also have a new-
comer in freshman Derrick "Shocka" Henry, above right. Top left, Yulee's Jarell

No. I from start to finish


would be a very tall task


T "he preseason col-
lege football maga-
zines are making
their way onto store
shelves and, as most expect-
ed, the University of Florida
is the popular pick to run the
table and claim its second
straight national champi-
onship. But can the Gators
become just the second mod-
ern wire-to-wire No. 1 team?
Notre Dame did it in
1943. Army did it in 1945.
Florida State did it in 1999.
As talented and loaded as the
2009 Gators appear to be -
Florida returns Tim Tebow �
on offense, enough said, and
a ridiculous number of defen-
sive players - taking their
expected preseason No. 1
ranking all the way through
the national title game
unscathed might be border-
line impossible.
Does that mean Florida
can't win a BCS champion-
ship just because it opens the
season in the top spot? Abso-
lutely not, because eight
teams have done it since
1950. But it is unlikely that
the Gators will hold onto No.
1 from the beginning until
the end.
While Florida appears to
have the personnel to be a
wire-to-wire champ, the sub-
jectivity that goes into the
current polling system (a
ticked off sweater-vest-wear-
ing coach might vote Florida
down to anonymously smack
the SEC), makes such an
expectation a little gung-ho ...
Speaking of the Gators
and their national title
chances, Florida running
backs Jeff Demps and Chris
Rainey will be expected to fill
a majority of the running


game gap
left by the
talented
4. 'Percy


l many, how-
ever, are
Ss talking
m about the
void that
SPORTS the Gators
will have to
TALK fill in its
wide
JOHN L. receivers
CRAWFORD corps to
replace not
only Harvin
but also Louis Murphy. On
paper, the Gators appear a lit-
tle shaky in the deep threat
department.
While David Nelson really
came out of his shell last sea-
son, the senior-to-be is ex-
pected to fill a Dallas Baker-
type role as more of a
possession receiver. And
sophomore Deonte
Thompson seems to have
potential to be a field stretch-
er but he hasn't really had a
chance to be "the" guy.
Sure, Riley Cooper has
tremendous speed but he
missed the spring for base-
ball and is coming off a knee
injury. So one would have to
believe that head coach
Urban Meyer and company
won't expect him to step up
and be a game breaker from
the get-go. There just isn't a
guy who will line up on the
edge for the Gators and
scare anyone.
The X-Factor might be
incoming freshman Andre
Debose, whom many com-
pare to Harvin based on his
high school film. Type his


name into the search bar on
Youtube.com, watch the
highlights and you will likely
agree with the eerie resem-
blance. Whether that resem-
blance transfers to the grass
of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium
will be a topic bounced
around water coolers until
the Gators kick off in
September...
Former University of
Florida QB Chris Leak, who
helped lead the Gators to the
2006 National Championship,
is now part of the Canadian
Football League's Montreal
Alouettes. Leak, who despite
not being drafted spent time
on the rosters of Kansas City
and Chicago in 2007 and
2008 respectively, is listed as
the Alouettes' fourth-string
quarterback.
Montreal's starter, former
Utah State quarterback
Anthony Calvillo, appears to
have a firm grasp on his job,
considering his 69 percent
completion percentage and
43 touchdown passes from a
year ago. Former Iowa QB
Brad Banks is listed as sec-
ond-string and former
Florida State QB Adrian
McPherson, who might be
best remembered for the
2003 gambling scandal at
FSU, is listed as third-string.
You can bet (pun intend-
ed) that Leak has his work
cut out to progress up the
Montreal depth chart. With
that said, at least he's on a
roster. The Edmonton
Eskimos said goodbye to
Leak's former college team-
mate, RB Ciatrick Fason,
during their final cut.

YMCA Sailfish defeat Bullets, Rays


With two wins under the McArthur YMCA
Sailfish swim team's belt, the team is off to a
great start this season. On June 20, the Sailfish
hosted the Baker Bulletsand St. Augustine
Rays.
The Bullets and the Rays were ready for a
good race, but they did not expect the Sailfish
to be so eager for another win.
"With the team stronger this year, great
things are going to happen. We had many
unexpected amazing races (that) weekend,"
Coach Mary Donn Bowman said.
Paul Borgman dominated the 11-12 boys
50-yard butterfly.
It was a one-two photo finish in the eight-
and-under girls 25-yard freestyle with Ciera
Wilcox breaking a three-year record with a
16.99 and Taylor Radcliffe two-tenths behind
her with a 17.19.
The eight-and-under girls medley relay
team (Taylor Radcliffe, Bridgette DeLille,
Ciera Wilcox and Haylie Wallace) team set a
new team and pool record with a 1:33.25.
Sofia Dupee had a day of personal best
times, but the event she smiles about most is


LeAnna Middleton competes in the 50-
yard freestyle.

smashing the three-year-old six-and-under 25-
yard butterfly record with a 28.72.
As the meet came to a conclusion, the
Sailfish were on top with a big win.
It was a great day for the Sailfish once
again, proving the Sailfish is the fastest fish in
the pool. McArthur YMCA Sailfish hosted
Dye-Clay and Yates last Saturday.

still more swimming to come. The Stingrays will continue to practice for the River City

WEDNESDAY., JUlY 1.2009 SPORTS News-Leader


Lacoss wins Wednesday blitz title


The month of June has felt
like the dog clays of summer
and the high temperatures
tend to keep a few golfers
home, where they can enjoy
life in airconditioned comfort
while sitting in front of the
TV. Still 51 Slayers came out
in the noonday sun to play in
the blitz last Wednesday and
59 on Friday.
On Wednesday, Terry
Lacoss took individual honors
with a 76 and plus 11 points.
Joe Parrish, with a three-
under-par 70, was second at
plus 8. Jim McFarland had a
94 and plus 7 to come in third.
Lacoss (plus 11) got
enough help from Jim
Roberts, who had a 75 and
plus 4 points, to offset the
minus 4 of Jim Raffone (89)
while Charles Benefield (96)
was plus 1 and the team took
first place at plus 12.
A five-man team finished
second as the team of D.D.
Miller (96, plus 4), Doug
Morris (94, plus 3) P.W.
Nobles (86, plus 1), Jack
Croake (83, plus 1) and Rob
Maynard (81, minus 2) came
in at plus 7.
Third place at plus 5 was
claimed by the team of Tom
Roberts (76, plus 6), John
Rudd (92, plus 3), Sammy
Alvarez (79, minus 1) and
Jack Harrison (90, minus 3).
There was a tie for fourth
place at plus 4 between the
teams of Wayne Mortenson
(90, plus 6), Larry Luett (78,
plus 5), Paul Hensler (96,
minus 3), Dave Mudd (93,
minus 4) and Dennis
Sassenger (83, plus 4), Ron
Peterson (84, plus 2), Hydie
Peterson (77, plus 3), Doug
Wolfe (89, minus 1) and Mike
Dowling (100, minus 4).
Although the greens are
still far from being perfect
after being aerated and sand-
ed, a number of players seem
to find them OK for their
game. On Friday individual
honors went to Adam Loud,
who had a three-under-par 70
and plus 12 points. Terry
Lacoss had another good day
as he finished second with a
79 and plus 10 but didn't
make it onto a winning team.
There was a three-way tie for
third at plus 7 between Joe
Parrish, who also had a round
of 70, Tommy Purvis (85) and
Jerry Hudgins (93).
Led by Parrish's plus 7,
the all-plus team'that included :
Frank Finocchio (82, plugi5), '
Dave Mudd (84, plus 5) and
R. Garingo (88, plus 1) fin-

. Kenny Perry shot a 63 on Sunday " Tournament Results
Sto finish with a tournament-record 1st: Kenny Perry
258 and won the Travelers Purse: $1,080,000
( Championship by three strokes T-2nd: Paul Goydos & David Toms
over Paul Goydos and David Purse: $528,000
Toms. Perry tied a course T-4th: Curtis, Mahan & Moore
record with a 61 on Thursday Purse: $248,000
and led after each of the first two rounds, but trailed by a stroke to
Goydos heading into the final round. He responded by shooting a 32
on the front nine and was up by 5 strokes heading to the par-4 15th.
"Everyone kind of asks about the Augusta hangover deal," Perry said. "I guess I kind
of shoved that aside a little bit. So that makes me feel pretty good." Perry's bogey-
bogey finish at Augusta kept him from winning the Masters in April.


'. One of the most difficult shots to
.. master is a high, soft lob shot to a
S-real tight pin placement, such as
Si right over a bunker. The key to this
shot is to get the ball to stop quickly
, & once it lands on the green in order to
get the ball as close as possible.
The club of choice for this shot will have to be the 60
degree lob wedge as the standard sand wedge will
cause many more sculled shots than good results.
As for the actual shot, it is quite difficult to get a con-
sistent swing. Going against most of what we have
been taught in golf, you have to cock the wrists
while taking a long backswing. Use your torso on
the downswing, maintaining the cocked wrists and
the blade open through impact. The follow-through
should have the clubface facing up to the sky to try
and generate the proper bounce and spin.


Japanese teenage golfer Ryo Ishikawa qualified for the British Open on
Sunday with a win at the Mizuno Open. The 17-year-old Ishikawa shot a
final round 73 to secure a place at the July 16-19 British Open at Turnberry '.,-5
with his first win of 2009. "I'm thrilled to have qualified for the British Open," -
said Ishikawa. "There were some tense moments today but it all worked out in
the end." Sunday's win was the third of Ishikawa's career on the Japanese tour.
Ishikawa missed the cut at the Masters and has received a special invitation to play in the
PGA Championship in August. Ishikawa became the youngest winner of a tournament on the
Japanese tour by winning the Munsingwear Open KSB Cup at the age 15 years and 8
months in May 2007.

Big game fish



of St. Marys, Ga.


Saltwater fishermen
departing from either
St. Marys, Ga., or
Fernandina Beach
have a lot in common. When
entering the ocean by the St.
Marys Inlet, fishermen often
navigate right past some of
the best saltwater fishing the
southeastern U.S. has to
offer. A few savvy fishermen
keep their marine radios
turned down low and share
with a few select fishing bud-
dies their impressive saltwa-
ter catches made at the tips of
these fishy jetty rocks.
While most of the game
fish caught at both the St.
Marys north and south jetty
rocks are too big to keep,
catching a legal saltwater
game fish for the dinner table
may be somewhat of a chal-
lenge.
"Our fishing party was
anchored right in the middle
of a school of St. Marys red
drum," said Capt. Keith
Edwards, captain of the "Miss
Kayla" charter fishing boat.
"The tide was perfect with a
slow outgoing tide until 2:30
p.m. Then an incoming tide
began pushing bait right up
against the jetty rocks, where
redfish were taking advan-
tage of an easy meal."
During the height of the
fishing action, Will Beattie
hooked a nice red drum and
began reeling in his catch
when a much larger fish gob-
bled up his catch.
'There is no way of really
telling, but I believe Will
Beattie had hooked a redfish
when that big fish ate Will's
fish," Edwards said.
For the next 15 minutes,
Beattie applied maximum
fishing rod pressure to his
hooked fish while everyone
on board waited patiently to
see the big fish on the end of
his fishing line.
Finally a 150- to 175-pound
"Goliath" grouper came slow-
ly to the surface where
Edwards boated Beattie's
catch long enough to take a
few pictures before releasing
his catch. The all-tackle IGFA
world r,:,:,:r d Goliath grouper
was actually caught from the
deep waters of the Amelia
River on May 20, 1961, by
Lynn Joyner and weighed 680
pounds.
During the next few hours,
the "Miss Kayla" fishing party
landed a pair of cobia weigh-


ing to 60
pounds, 10

fish fell in

OUTDOORS water fisher-
men navigat-
TerryLacoss ing the tip of
the St.
Marys south jetty rocks to
fish offshore pass right by the
best fishing waters, maybe
the best saltwater fishing in
the entire southeastern U.S.
The St. Marys north jetty
rocks also harbor world class
saltwater fishing, where large
schools of tarpon, redfish,
king mackerel, sharks and
the occasional cobia are tar-
geted by saltwater fishermen.
During the spring fishing sea-
son, Derek Crawford landed a
pending new Georgia all-tack-
le black drum. Crawford's big
drum weighed 103.5 pounds.
Several fishing seasons
ago, Roland Martin filmed a
T.V. fishing show at the tip of
the St. Marys south jetty
rocks. Martin hooked and
released a 194-pound tarpon
that was caught on camera
while fishing on my boat, the
"Amelia Angler."
However, Martin's tarpon
wasn't the largest fish that the
"Amelia Angler" had landed
at the St. Marys jetty rocks.
Hugh Stone and Hugh Stone
Jr. teamed up to fight a 500-
pound hammerhead shark for
4.5 hours before the large
maneater was landed.
During the heat of the
summer fishing season, king
mackerel fishermen slow troll
live baits fof giant king mack-
erel at the end of the St.
Marys jetty rocks. World
class king mackerel angler
Joe Bruce landed a 52-pound '
king mackerel while king
fishing at the tip of the St.
Marys north jetty rocks in-
1992. Bruce's big mackerel is
still the largest king mackerel
ever weighed in during the
annual Georgia Golden Isles
Kingfish Tournament

Shoreline anglers need license
Florida's resident saltwater anglers who
fish from shore or a structure affixed to shore
will need to buy a $7.50 (plus administrative
and handling fees) shoreline fishing license
by Aug. 1, unless they have a regular resident
saltwater fishing license.
The new license applies only to Florida res-
ident saltwater anglers who fish from shore.
Resident anglers may prefer to purchase the
regular recreational saltwater license that cov-
ers them, no matter where they fish for saltwa-
ter species in Florida.
Florida has always required non-residents
to have a license when fishing from shore, and
they will still need to purchase a regular non-
resident saltwater fishing license.
The new shoreline saltwater fishing license
for residents goes on sale July 15. It provides
all of the same exemptions as a regular
license, including senior citizens, children, dis-
abled people who meet certain qualifications,
active-duty military personnel while home on
leave and anglers who fish from a licensed
pier. In addition, the shoreline license require-
ment includes two new exemptions: anglers
drawing food stamps, temporary cash assis-
tance or Medicaid; and anglers fishing in their
home counties who use cane poles or other
gear that does not depend on mechanical
retrieval.
At the request of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission, the
Florida Legislature passed the new license
requirement to head off a federal license
requirement that will go into effect Jan. 1,
2010, and will have a $15-$25 fee beginning in
2011. Florida's new shoreline license exempts
this state's anglers from the federal license
requirement.
Several hunting, fishing and conservation
organizations requested other permit fee
changes, which do not take effect until July
2010. They include increases in the state
waterfowl stamp from the current $3 to $5; in
the resident turkey permit from $5 to $10; the
non-resident turkey permit from $100 to $125;
the wildlife management area permit for hunt-
ing, fishing and other recreational uses from
$25 to $30; the limited-entry or special-oppor-
tunity hunt fee from $100 per day to $150 per
day and $250 per week to $300 per week, as
determined by FWC Commissioners; the
snook permit from $2 to $10 and the lobster
permit from $2 to $5.
Also, new laws create a $5 annual deer per-
mit (in addition to the current hunting license
requirement for deer hunters) and allow the
agency to charge up to $5 per day for non-
hunting and non-fishing recreation on certain
wildlife management areas.


The FWC will evaluate areas where it is the
lead manager to determine where to charge
the fees and how much to charge. In addition,
the state will use up to 10 percent of the hunt-
ing and sport-fishing fees to promote those
sports, with emphasis on youth participation.

Xtreme kingfish events
The United States Kingfish Organization is
announcing its new Xtreme Kingfish
Tournament Series with proceeds benefiting
the athletes of Special Olympics Florida.
The offshore fishing tournaments target
king mackerel. But what distinguishes the
Xtreme Kingfish Tournament Series is its goal
to take the tournament concept to a new level
by not only hosting tournaments that satisfy
even the most competitive fisherman, but
gives back to the community while treating
the participants to dining, entertainment and
special events as part of their tournament
experience.
The United States Kingfish Organization is
a non-profit organization; adding a whole new
dimension to offshore tournament fishing by
making registration fees (in whole or part) tax
deductible to their members.
Xtreme Kingfish Tournament Series
founder Philip Podskalan is merging his vision
of creating a new kind of tournament series
with his desire to introduce others to Special
Olympics Florida, the respected charity that
provides sports training and competition to
children and adults diagnosed with intellectual
disability.
In addition to its commitment to philanthro-
py, the XKTS is dedicated to promoting sport
fishing as a family activity, as well as valuing
sportsmanship and fairness in the sport. Also,
unlike many associations in the industry,
awards for junior and lady anglers will be
given. The organization is aggressively pursu-
ing sponsorship and members to build the
organization to be the biggest in the industry.
In total, 20 tournaments are already in the
works for the 2009-10 tournament season.
Spots are limited and are filling up fast, so for
rules, information, locations and registration,
those interested should visit
www.xtremekts.com.
Confirmed tournament dates and locations:
July 30 through Aug. 2, St. Augustine; Aug. 6-
9, Sebastian; Sept. 25-27, Port Canaveral;
spring 2010, Stuart; April 22-25, Fort Pierce;
fall 2010, Sarasota.
XKTS is also working on a tri-state series to
include Georgia, South Carolina and North
Carolina. Visit www.USKingfish.org.

Each of us has a preferred system

the old dependable address books

What a pleasant surprise to walk
into Books Plus on Centre Street and

years ago. Not only was it a useful
address book, it had the bonus of fea-
turing beautiful pictures of Nova
