FUN Continued from 1A
child made a piece of pottery."
And on one day, scholars
wrote questions for the
mayor at the writing station,
Davenport said.
Both Schlenker and
Davenport said initial returns
were very positive. They said
they received an over-
whelming positive response
from parents by the second
day and overheard children
saying things like: "Is this
camp, or is this heaven?"
'This is nothing like school."
And "I like this camp better
than cheerleading camp."
"Everything we've done
here is to help build confi-
dence because we're not
under the illusion that we can
teach a child how to read or
even read better in a week,
but we can certainly help
build self-confidence, encour-
age them to have a good atti-
tude toward reading and to
want to read a little better,"
Davenport said.
The confidence-building
component seemed apparent
on the final day of the camp
when the young scholars
approached the mayor direct-
ly, front and center of the
room, to draw a question
from a basket. She was
addressed with questions
like, Is the town haunted?
What is your favorite food?
How many people live in
Fernandina? And even, Can
you give me a ride home this
afternoon?
After about 20 minutes of
questions and answers with'
the scholars, the mayor had
some high praise for the
camp.
"Oceans of Fun shows
what great volunteers can do
for the children in our com-
munity," Steger said. "Efforts
such as this should not go
unrecognized and volunteers
made a huge effort to make
a week these kids will never
forget."
Schlenker and Davenport
are looking toward the
future, including a camp in
Yulee. "This space was donat-
ed by St. Peter's...,"
Schlenker said. 'This is what
we're looking for in Yulee."


BUDGET Continued from 1A
based on the situation we're fac-
ing this year, let's take a deep
breath on the capital improve-
ment plan this year, and let's
not spend any money unless we
have to."
Selby also recommended
that the county keep both its
countywide and municipal mill-
age rates at the current year's
levels of 5.567 and 1.6694,
respectively, rather than boost-
ing them to the state-allowed
levels.
The millage rate is the rate at
which property is taxed. A mil
equals 1/100th of a dollar.
Therefore, under the current
rates a taxpayer would pay
about $5.57 for every $1,000 of
taxable property value at the
countywide rate. The municipal
rate is added to the countywide
rate for residents living in unin-
corporated areas; those in
Fernandina Beach, Hilliard and
Callahan do not pay the munic-
ipal rate, but do pay taxes
imposed by their own city gov-
ernments.
Keeping the millage rates


WAKE Continued from 1A
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission," said Hallman.
"You have to show that those
regulations are necessary,"
added Assistant County
Attorney Mollie Garrett. "We're
going to have to focus on safe-
ty and vessel traffic congestion.
... It's been strongly advised that
in order to make the request, we
need hard evidence."
County Commissioner
Danny Leeper worried about
the amount of proof the state
would require.
"It's easy for a property
owner to say there's a haz-
ardous condition, but the bur-
den is on us or the property
owner to prove it," he said. "I'd
like to think of this board as
more proactive than reactive,
but apparently the state gov-
ernment won't allow us to be
proactive in preventing acci-
dents out there."
County Commissioner
Walter Boatright wanted the
state's evidence requirements
spelled out more clearly.


steady will mean a drop in prop-
erty tax revenue for the county.
With a decline in countywide
property values, the Office of
Management and Budget pro-
jected a drop from 2008-9's $53
million in ad valorem revenue to
about $51.1 million in the com-
ing year - a $1.9 million decline.
Selby also estimated a shortfall
of about $1 million in revenue
from sales and fuel taxes.
However, Selby said he did-
n't anticipate any major
'decrease in services.
"Some of the department
heads are obviously concer-
ned," he said Friday. "I am not
personally aware of any major
services being cut."
While-services may not be
cut, some will be'scaled back.
"The recommendation (County
Coordinator Ed) Sealover put
in (the library's) budget was to
reduce their operating hours,"
Selby said Friday. "At the pres-
ent time, we don't think that will
require a reduction in force, but
it may require a reduction in
hours."
The library will still be able
to purchase new books in the

"When it says, 'number of
boating accidents,' do they give
a timeframne?" he asked.
'"They don't give a time-
frame," Garrett said. 'They want
to see a number of accidents
that gives them competent and
substantial evidence that there's
a need to have a no-wake zone.
... I think the North End Boat
Ramp opened in 2003, so it
would be reasonable to go back
at least that far."
One of the biggest obstacles
could be the fact that people
don't file official reports about
dangerous wakes that often.
."If people aren't reporting it,
we have no legal ground to
stand on," OHPA Chair Carl
Cahill said.

upcoming year. 'There will be a
book budget," Selby said
Monday. "It may be somewhat
reduced."
While jobs are not being
eliminated except at the Build-
ing Department and the land-
fill, no existing vacancies will
be filled. However, newly vacant
positions may be filled in the
coming year, Selby said.
"All vacancies were elimi-
nated, except anything that's
maybe come up since we put
this thing together, with a cou-
ple of notable exceptions," main-
ly in the Animal Control depart-
ment, he said. "For example, if
someone from Road and Bridge
were to resign last week, we
might replace him. There's still
a (hiring) freeze, though, so it
would still have to go to the
board for approval."
The county commission has
until Aug. 11 to set a tentative
millage rate based on Selby's
recommendation. The com-
mission must also set two pub-
'lic hearings to give taxpayers
the opportunity to give their
input on the budget.
rsmith@fbnewsleader.com

the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office recommended looking
further than just the files of local
law enforcement.
"I can tell you that we handle
very few boating accidents. In
last few years we've handled
maybe five or six," he said.
"Most are handled by state
agencies. But what incident
reports we do have we can com-
pile for you. ... I'd recommend
not just-the sheriff's office, but
all agencies that have enforce-
ment authority on the water."
Both commissions agreed
that Hallman would meet with
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves and
State Attorney Wesley White to
discuss a method of compiling
statistics for the state.

HERO Continued from 1A
his first Congressional Medal
of Honor to Pope.
News-Leader columnist
Dickie Anderson described
Pope in a 2004 column as "a
handsome white-haired gen-
tleman with blue eyes that are
startling in their clarity and
brightness. Add a quick smile
and gentle sense of humor."
Anderson wrote, "As you
walk in the Pope's front door,
the first thing you see is a pho-
tograph of a handsome young
man in uniform with President
Truman standing behind him
and fastening the ribbon
with the Congressional Medal
of Honor around his neck.
Below the photograph is the
medal."
About 3,400 such medals
have been given since it was
created in 1861, and fewer than
50 living recipients.
Pope was born in Milton,


Mass., and attended Bowdoin
College, graduating magna
cum laude. He enlisted in the
Marine Corps after graduation,
and after basic training and
completion of officer's candi-
date school he married
Eleanor Hawkins, his high
school sweetheart.
In June 1942, he deployed
with the First Marine Division
to the Pacific. He served with
the Division at Guadalcanal
and in the New Britain cam-
paign, receiving a Bronze Star
for valor.
After the war Pope re-
turned to Boston and became
a bank president. He retired
from the banking business in
1983, and moved with Eleanor
to Brunswick, Maine. They
later lived on Amelia Island
and on Great Pond in Belgrade
Lakes, Maine. He and Eleanor
had been married 66 years
when she died Jan. 22.

'No!' to

ANGElA DAUGHTRY
News Leader

A proposal to charge for
parking at the beach and in
downtown Ferniandina Beach
has brought mostly objections
- some vehelient - from citi
Zells on an online discussion
board.
Mayor Susan Steger intro
duced the topic to the
Fernandina Beach and Amelia
Island Local Network
Facebook discussion board,
writing that parking kiosks
could be placed at the beach
and downtown.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor brought up the pay-
for-parking idea at a recent city
planning meeting as one of
many suggestions to help
cover lost city revenues.
Parking would cost $1 an hour,
24 hours a day at Main Beach.
There could also be a kiosk
system downtown, but it would
not include Centre Street.
'This (parking system) is
in Jacksonville and St
Augustine," Steger wrote on
the discussion board. "Would
love to hear comments!"
Samples of the replies:
"Seems to me that parking
meters serve the same 'target-
ed' effect as a child paying to
board an already-taxed school
bus, or perhaps installing a toll
booth at the entrance to 'tar-
geted' city streets; just not
right." - Mac Tyre
"I mean what's next, a walk-
ing tax just for me to walk
down the street during
Shrimpfest or maybe a tax to
breathe in Fernandina? I think
you need to tell the city man-
ager to take a stroll around
Fernandina and do a little meet
and greet with the good people
of this town so he can realize
where his paycheck comes
from and maybe he will figure

Green sprouts grow


The green sprouts of eco-
nomic growth are beginning
to spread like St. Augustine
grass after a heavy rain and a
downpour of fertilizer.
The term "green sprouts"
has been widely used to
describe buds of vitality in a
U.S. economy weakened by a
financial crisis, frozen credit
markets, and escalating unem-
ployment. The sprouts have
taken various shapes, but are

* Manufacturing and

on the variety of surveys con-

Here in Fernandina Beach,
this summer looks and feels
like the busiest in recent
memory. Restaurants are
often packed and the streets
are bustling with tourists from
across the country.
Many people, from restau-
rant owners to beachgoers to
the man on the street, sur-
mised that the Fourth of July
weekend was the biggest ever
for this area. Even the crowds
gathering on the beach and in
downtown for the fireworks
were the largest in most resi-
dents' memories.
For a tourism-based econo-
my like ours, an economic
downturn doesn't help - but it
doesn't always hurt as much
as some might think. Many
people opt for a weekend at
the beach over an expensive
European vacation or a cruise
as a way to save money. Even
cash-strapped families can
usually afford a drive-in vaca-
tion to Amelia Island, for
instance.


The resorts are also
reporting robust inflows of
guests. This past weekend
there were three or four wed-
dings held at The Ritz-Carlton,
Amelia Island, for instance..
These types of once-in-a-life-
time events are big winners
for hotels and resorts. '
Government leaders have
pushed down interest rates as
a means of flooding the econo-
my with money. The premise
is that individuals and busi-
nesses will borrow affordable
money and spend it. This has
also led to a.spree of mort-
gage refinancing for those
with decent credit
The global economy is
demonstrating similar positive
signs of growth. Led by
China, much of Asia, as well
as Brazil, foreign markets are
recovering from the financial
fallout and are again striking
prosperity. Europe appears to
be lagging behind the U.S. in
its economic recovery, howev-
er.
Maybe the American initia-
tive to "go green" has other
valuable applications.

City OKs marina repairs


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader

Fernandina Beach Conmmis-
sioners have approved an insur-
ance payment of $18,000, plus a
city deductible of $10,000, for
repairs to a city dock that
caught fire in May.
The city has already
received a check for $18,437,
which will be passed on to
Worth Contracting along with
the city's portion, for dock
and piling repair, as well as
repair of the fire suppression
and electrical systems. The
city's insurance company
will seek reimbursement of
the entire cost of the repairs
against the owners' insurance
company.
The exact cause of the fire,
which destroyed a 38-foot yacht
and killed the owners' dog, has
not been determined, although
reports state it was most likely
an electrical problem with
either the boat or the dock
hookup.
Commissioners at their July
7 meeting .also discussed a
change order amounting to
nearly $6,500 for work on the
new marine welcome center
and boaters' lounge. According
to city Marina Director
Coleman Langshaw, the addi-
tional money is for fixtures and
other items that were over-

Langshaw said it was an
oversight that the items were

Wrecks kill 2 Callahan women

Two Callahan women were
killed last week in separate car
crashes.
Maxine Higginbotham
Jones, 76, died Friday when her
car was struck from behind by
another vehicle, forcing it into
the path of a semi truck.
Ida Strickland Allen, 71, died
Thursday in a single-car acci-

Jones was traveling south in
a 2005 Buick LeSabre on US

shortly after 9 a.m. Friday when
she slowed to turn left into a
private driveway, according to
the Florida Highway Patrol.
Michael A. Mitchell, 21, of
Hilliard was traveling behind
in a 1992 Toyota MR-2 and
struck the Buick in the rear,
forcing it into the northbound
lane where it was struck on the
right side by the truck, the
report stated.
Jones, who was wearing a
seatbelt, was pronounced dead
at the scene. Mitchell suffered

Shands Jacksonville with minor
injuries. Damage to his truck
was estimated at $10,000.
According to the report,

after 8 a.m. Thursday in the
right lane when she veered off
the roadway onto the right

spun out of control, according
to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The left side of the cat then col-

wearing a seatbelt and no alco-

3 held for counterfeiting


$1 bills into $100 bills


A Fernandina Beach man
and two Georgia residents
were arrested Friday and
charged withcounterfeiting
$100 bills, according to the
Naples Daily News.
Collier County sheriff's offi-
cials declined to fax the police
reports, but the newspaper
reported the three were
caught with more than $4,200
worth of counterfeiting money
and equipment.
Joseph Edward Rimes, 35,
of Fernandina Beach was
charged with washing $1 U.S.
currency bills with a house-
hold cleaner and then print-
ing $100 currency onto the
washed out $1 bills.
William David Rodeffer III,


32, of Folkston, Ga., was
charged with possession of
counterfeited bills and fraud
to obtain property under
$20,000.
Valerie Marietta Carver, 25,
of Alma, Ga., was charged
with possessing more than 10
counterfeited bank bills and
fraud with intent to obtain
property.
According to the report,
deputies found 42 counterfeit
$100 bills, two counterfeit $20
bills, as well as printers and
ink cartridges.
The newspaper, quoting
the police report, said the
three had reprinted the money
while inside Rodeffer's truck
traveling from Fernandina


Beach to Naples.
Authorities said the three
were heading to an overnight
fishing .trip to the Dry
Tortugas.
Carver told police she
spent about $1,000 of the coun-
terfeit money to purchase food
and other items, according to
reports.
Rimes told deputies that he
got the counterfeiting idea
from watching the show
Dateline NBC describe a sim-
ilar scheme in Las Vegas, the
newspaper reported.
The newspaper said police
were called after a woman at
the fishing camp in Naples
noticed the fake bills inside
the truck and called police.

Boy got rare disease while swimming


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
A Callahan Middle School
student died July 10 from a rare
disease he contracted while
swimming, according to the
Nassau County Health
Department.
Authorities initially sus-
pected Dalton Nettles, 13, died
of meningitis but test results
revealed he had primary amoe-
bic meningoencephalitis, or
PAM, a rare disease caused by
a microorganism found in
warm bodies of fresh water.
"(PAM) is
a form of
meningitis.
The 'menin'
Part means it
. j affects your
E * brain, swells
.. your brain,"
said Wade
Dalton Sparkman,
public infor-
mation officer
for the health department. "It's
not mosquito-borne, it's
microorganism-borne."
Dalton 'had recently been
swimming in a lake in south-
ern Madison County, accord-
ing to the health department.
Naegleria fowleri, the amoeba
that causes PAM, is most com-
monly found in the upper layers
of sediment at the bottom of


lakes and ponds. Infection
occurs when the amoeba enters
the body through the nose and
travels to the brain and spinal
cord while the person is under-
water, according to the health
department.
However, the disease is rare,
Sparkman said, citing a 2001
study by the American Society
for Microbiology.
"What we had from 1965 -
which was the first described
case - to 2001 was 180 world-
wide," he said "The ohly cases
that were reported with data
from Florida showed a risk of
seven cases per billion swim-
ming episodes. It's got to be
shallow water, it's got to be stag-
nant and it's got to be warm. ...
The conditions have to be just
right."
Although the infection is
rare, the threat increases dur-
ing summer months.
The health department said
people should seek medical
attention immediately if they
experience headache, fever,
nausea, vomiting or a stiff
neck after swimming in fresh
water. If the disease is not
diagnosed within 48 hours,
amoebas invade the brain.
Death usually occurs in a week
to 10 days. However, the dis-
ease cannot be spread person-
to-person or contracted in a
properly maintained swimming


pool, according to the health in lakes, rivers or hot springs.
department. * Avoid digging or stirring "'Tt, . ...,, , r ...,


It recommends the follow-
ing precautions to avoid con-
tracting PAM:
* Avoid swimming in warm
lakes or ponds, poorly main-
tained swimming pools, storm
water holding areas or in post-
ed no-swimming areas.
* Hold your nose shut or
use nose-clips when swimming


up sediment while swimming
in shallow bodies of warm fresh
water.

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 indi-
cates 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.

Bar fight arrests
A local bar fight involving a
weapon yielded a drug bust and
landed two men in jail on mul-
tiple felony charges.
William Trevor Crisp, 23, of
35063 Blackmon Road in
Callahan and James Edward
Langford, 22, of Jacksonville
were seen fighting with a
Palace Saloon manager outside
the Centre Street bar July 16
about 1:30 a.m., according to
an arrest report. The manager
told police the two men and
their friends were highly intox-
icated and he asked them twice
to leave the bar - the second
time after one returned and fell
down.
At that time Crisp began to
strike the manager in the face
and body while holding a black
metal expandable baton that
witnesses said he removed
from his back pocket, police
reported. The manager. was
able to push Crisp out of the
bar, but Langford jumped in
and all three fell to the side-
walk outside.-
A Fernandina Beach patrol-
man took Crisp and Langford
into custody and when he
asked Langford for ID, the man
reached into his pocket and an
unmarked prescription pill bot-
tle fell to the ground. It con-
tained hydrocodone, Xanax and


suspected crack cocaine, the
report stated.
The baton was recovered in
a bathroom inside the bar after
authorities discovered Crisp
had handed it to a friend to
hide, police reported.
Crisp is being held in the
Nassau County Jail on a $25,002
bond for aggravated battery, a
felony, and trespass, disorderly
intoxication and carrying a con-
cealed weapon - all misde-
meanors.
Langford is being held on a
$10,002 bond for possession of
hydrocolone, possession of
Xanax and possession of crack
cocaine, all felonies, and bat-
tery, disorderly intoxication and
trespassing - all misdemeanors.

Candy thefts
Two youth recreation facili-
ties were hit by burglary and
theft over the weekend.
Damage was caused by
forced entry and candy and
money were stolen from the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation
Center at 2500 Atlantic Ave.
July 17. A similar crime was
reported July 19 at a conces-
sion stand at Buccaneer Field
on Beech Street.
The recreation center theft
was reported about 6 a.m.
Friday when a lifeguard found
the hinges on a cabinet bent
back. When she looked inside,
she found $40 in cash had been
taken from boxes inside. An
inventory of missing items
found an additional $52 in
candy and snacks had been
stolen, according to a police
report.
Authorities determined the
burglars entered the building
by prying open an outside
door, but no fingerprints were
found.
Just two days later a bur-
glary was reported at
Buccaneer Field after a victim
discovered the concession
stand's shutters pried open and
four boxes of candy valued at
$57 stolen.
According to a police report,
the victim said the incident took
place sometime between July

Monarch butterflies
change from striped cater-
pillar, left, to chrysalis,
above, to adult butterfly,
right, in backyards stocked
with caterpillar food of
milkweed and plenty of
nectar producing flowers.
PAT FOSTER-TURLEY
FOR THE NEWS-LEADER


A milky tale: return ofthe butterflies


T his spring, with a
jump on the sea-
son unusual for
me, I got an early
garden planted and even
bought a few more perennials
to stock up the butterfly gar-
den. Of course, when I spot-
ted milkweed plants on the
nursery shelf, with their
orange flowers in bloom, I
snatched up the last three.
A few weeks later, when
admiring my garden, as I do
most evenings, I happened to

I


notice the milkweeds. What's
this! One plant was stripped
of its leaves, revealing a lone-
ly striped caterpillar, the cul-
prit, lurking on the now bare
- stem.
Instead of reacting to this
discovery with horror, "My
milkweed is dying!" I greeted
the news with joy, "I've
attracted a monarch butter-
fly!" And, I immediately went
to work saving this caterpillar
from the birds also lurking in
the yard, hoping for some.

morsels to
feed their
young.
First I
located a large
gallon ice tea
jar and put Ihe
caterpillar and
its milkweed
twig in it, and WILD
opened the WAYS
plug on the
top and put it
in the shade. Pat
This gift was Foster- Turley
presented to
Bucko when he came home
from work that day. A gift
from nature. But quickly we
realized the jar was too humid
and moved the caterpillar and
its food leaves of milkweed
into a fisherman's cricket
cage. There it stayed, and one
day it had "done its thing" up
near the top of the cage, out
of site. It had pupated into a
chrysalis.
I was gone for a week dur-
ing the rains, but got daily
reports about our science
project, as we called it. When
I returned we decided to free


it from the cage - in case it
started to emerge into a but-
terfly - since it would be
harmed and trapped.
So Bucko cut the chrysalis
from the plastic cap, and we
attached it to our indoor living
evergreen Christmas tree, a
perfect ornament for summer-
time. It was no telling when
we could expect the monarch
butterfly to emerge from it,
but no doubt the cooler tem-
peratures of our indoor house
would slow its development.
Every day we looked at the
chrysalis, hard to tell if it was
dead or alive, but we hoped
for the best No change was
evident, at least to us, at our
cursory inspections until the
day I walked into the study to
look at it, and found the cas-
ing opened up and the con-
tents gone. The butterfly had
emerged! I missed it! Where
was it!! Hope Masala, my cat,
didn't get it. All these
thoughts flashed through my
mind.
Then I spotted it, a beauti-
ful monarch, on the carpet
under the table, trying to
stretch its wings. I rushed out


One plant was stripped of its leaves, revealing
a lonely striped caterpillar, the culprit.


to call Bucko to marvel at the
spectacle, and together we
reverently released it onto the
zinnias in my flower garden.
As I watched and pho-
tographed the monarch, it
stretched its wings and then
flew off to bask on the sun-
heated side of our neighbor's
house.
Later that day a monarch
butterfly, a young one with
fresh wing, was flitting around
the milkweeds - which had
grown back all the leaves by
then. It might have been the
same butterfly. But sadly, the
monarch disappeared, and the
three milkweed plants are suc-
culently full of nourishment
for caterpillars that never
arrive.
There are very few butter-
flies of any type in my yard
right now, even though all the
butterfly nectar and host
plants are in full bloom. There
are few bees, too, too few to


pollinate my cucumbers ade-
quately. And the dragonflies
are nearly absent from the
pond.
But yes, folks, just maybe
there are less mosquitoes now
thanks to the work of the
Amelia Island Mosquito
Control District, landscape
companies and other sources
of pesticide spraying. I just
wonder how much of this lack
of biodiversity is due to the
poisons that we are pumping
out that do not selectively kill
mosquitoes and lawn pests
but harm most insects too.
How much collateral dam-
age is acceptable, that is the
question. Meantime, ponder-
ing this thought, I will opti-
mistically await the butterflies'
'return.

Jake Foley scrambles back to first base to avoid the pick-off Friday when the Fernandina Beach Babe Ruth 15-and-under Allstars took on
Argyle in the second round of the state tournament in Sanford. The Fernandina Pirates, the district champions, opened tournament play
Thursday with a 16-15 victory over Dinsmore after a 10-inning battle. Fernandina fell to Argyle 5-1 Friday but rebounded to beat
Suwannee on Saturday to advance to Sunday's semifinal round. The Pirates led Dinsmore 8-3 in the top of the seventh inning in a
rematch between the two teams, but Dinsmore managed eight runs in the inning and held on for an 11-9 victory to eliminate Fernandina.
The Pirates settled for fourth place this year and were third in the state last season.

McGill up



to double



challenge

BILL PENNINGTON
For the News-Leader

Fernandina Beach's 2009 Chamber
of Commerce Board Chair Sean
McGill put a new twist on multi-task-
ing Saturday morning.
Faced with the predicament of
choosing between two of his favorite
sporting events on the island at near-
ly the same time, McGill instead
played a doubleheader. He completed
the Jacksonville Sprint Triathlon
Series at Peters Point,
jumped into an idling
car driven by wife
Tifini, rode three
miles to the Simmons
Road beach entrance
and began the Ed Gaw
Open Water Swim
Challenge.
McGill "I guess somebody
forgot to tell me that a
triathlon is swim, bike,
run, finish and not go back to swim
again," McGill said with a laugh.
With an impressive 57:22 triathlon
finish, third overall in the highly com-
petitive 35-39 age group, McGill was
still about 15 minutes late for the 5K
Open Water Challenge starting time
of 8:30 a.m. The triathlon had started
less than an hour earlier.
"I had to set up a lot of logistics to
make it work," McGill said. "I had
told both the triathlon race director
and Scott Mikelson of the Ed Gaw of
my intentions. Scott knew that Iwould-
likely be starting behind everybody
else, but I still wanted to do it
'Tif had the car running, I jumped
in, erased my triathlon race number
and put the Ed Gaw number on my
arm, took a drink of Coke, changed
my bathing cap, got out of the car at
Simmons Road and jogged to the
beach.
"When I ..i 11 , ,everybody had
already started. I made certain that
Scott knew that I was going so they
knew somebody was out there swim-
ming by themselves."
But McGill wasn't completely
alone.
An unforeseen swim companion
joined him a few minutes into the 3.1-
mile trek to Main Beach.
"I had a dolphin that swam next
to me for a good 10 minutes," he said.
"I wasn't scared or anything because
I knew it wasn't a shark, but, man,
that dorsal fin looks pretty big from
close up."
An accomplished swimmer who
has completed Ironman triathlons,
(2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-
mile run), 36-year-old McGill was able
to catch some.of the slower swim-
mers. His official finishing time in the
Ed Gaw was 1:43:36.
"Unofficially, I timed myself in 1
hour, 28 minutes," he said. "I was
pleased because that was only two
minutes slower than my best time for
that distance."
SAnd, Saturday's 5K swim was fol-
lowing a triathlon that consisted of a
quarter-mile ocean swim, 10-mile bike
and 5K run.
Unique challenges are nothing
new for the president .of McGill
Aviation. Upon completion of his first
Ironman in 2006, he dropped to one
knee and proposed to Tifini a few
yards past the finish line.
He had kept the diamond engage-
ment ring with him during the final
marathon portion of that event.
This time he carried a competitive
spirit and a treasured moment came
from the sea.


Tennessee'sKiffin may be smarter than we think


university of Tennessee
head football coach Lane
Kiffin might not be that
S big of an idiot afterall.
Although the guy carries himself
like someone who would whack a
beehive with a stick and then forget
to run, there might actually be a
method behind his madness (or
dumbness). Mind you that the fol-
lowing numbers have been out there
for a while, but they could go a long
way toward explaining why Monte's
son operates with such reckless
abandon.
Kiffin is due to make $2 million in
2009 and $2.15 million in 2010 for a
grand total of $4.15 million. If
Tennessee decides he is the train
wreck of a coach that many expect
him to be and terminates the con-
tract in either of those years, howev-
er, Kiffin walks off with $7.5 million.
Minor NCAA violations? Why
not? Heck, Lane, why don't you just
go ahead and pull off a few major


violations while
you're at it? Talk
about financial
security, it must be
nice to know
receiving a pink
slip is akin to hit-
ting the lottery.
Those who are
predicting Kiffin

SPORTS before he ever
coaches a game
TALK might want to
rethink that prog-
JOHN L. nostication:
CRAWFORD Because you can
... rest assured that
Tennessee will give
him multiple chances to succeed
with that kind of buyout clause in
place ...
Speaking of Kiffin and
Tennessee, injuries have depleted an
already thin wide receiving corps to
the point that freshman Nu'Keese


Richardson is expected to play early
and often for the Vols. Richardson,
you'll remember, originally commit-
ted to the University of Florida
before abruptly changing his mind
and signing with Tennessee.
Not that the Gators need any
more motivation for their Sept. 19
home date with the Vols, but I'm
sure there are a few defensive play-
ers who will be anxious to usher in
the rookie to the Southeastern
Conference. Hopefully for
Tennessee, Richardson's listed 165-
pound frame is able to endure a wel-
coming committee that will include
Brandon Spikes and Major Wright ...
One SEC coach (cough, Kiffin,
cough) reportedly left University of
Florida QB Tim Tebow off of his All-
SEC first team. While everyone is
entitled to his opinion, I'm not sure
that would have happened had the
selections been made public.
Seriously, the guy has a Heisman
Trophy and two national champi-


onship rings. Florida is virtually a
unanimous pick to repeat as BCS
champions primarily because of
Tebow, who many consider the best
college quarterback in the country
and one of the best all-time. And yet
someone honestly thinks that he
isn't even the best in his conference?
Take nothing away from Ole
Miss QB Jevan Snead, who is an out-
standing player and most likely
picked up the other first-team vote..
But given the opportunity to have
one quarterback in the huddle with
a game on the line, I find it hard to
believe that any coach in the SEC
would pass over Tebow.
With all that said, Tebow still
landed on the first team. It's just a
pity spite and jealousy seemingly
made their way into a decision that
was supposed to be made with
objectivity...
As I write this, toe is set to meet
leather between South Carolina and
North Carolina State in 46 days, two


hours and nine seconds, eight sec-
onds, seven seconds. Not that I'm
counting ...
NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield,
who reportedly tested positive for
methamphetamines twice this year,
is now contending that his urine
samples might have been spiked by
the racing organization. Mayfield
told reporters last weekend he
underwent an independent urine
test within an hour of the purported
positive test given by NASCAR doc-
tors and the second test came back
negative.
Stranger things have happened, I
guess, but you have to wonder what
would motivate NASCAR to do such
a thing. It will be interesting to see
whether or not the independent lab
used by Mayfield is deemed credi-
ble.

Shave has round of week


The middle week of July
saw a good turnout of 57 play-
ers on Wednesday and 62 on
Friday for the blitz last week
at the Fernandina Beach Golf
Club.
The round of the week
was turned in by Tommy
Shave on Friday as he shot a
four-under-par 69 (two under
his age), which was good for
plus 12 and individual honors.
On Wednesday it was
Terry Lacoss taking individ-
ual honors with a 74 and plus
8.
Allen Elefterion was sec-
ond with a 79 and plus 7.
There was a tie for third at
plus 6 between Harry Gibbs
(85) and Ronnie Boatright
(73).,
Lacoss's plus 10 received
help from Bob Sibley (84,
plus 5) as the team that
included Wes Arnold (84,
minus 2) and Larry Luett (80,
minus 1) finished in first
place at plus 10,
Elefterion (plus 7) also
received help from his team-
mates Steve Johnson (77, plus
4), John Bray (86, plus 1)
while Don Snapp (87) fin-
ished at minus 3 as the team
came in second at plus 9.
' All three of the individual
winners made it onto a win-
ning team as Boatright plus 6
was aided by Tony Lopez (80,
plus 3) to offset the minus 4
of Tommy Purvis (91) and the
even score of Kenny Pickett
(86) as they won third place
at plus 5.
There was a tie for fourth
place at even between the
team of Steve Shannon (82,
plus 5), Jim Dunphy (89, plus
2), D.D. Miller (99, minus 4),
Charles Fenn (81, minus 3);
Jim Raffone (88, minus 3),
Walter Boyd (88, plus 3),
Doug Morris (92, plus 3),
Sammy Alvarez (80, minus 3)
and Wayne Chism (89, plus
1), Mickey Rushton (87, plus
1), Tommy Shave (78, plus 1)
and Jim Roberts (80, minus
3).
On Friday, Shave's plus 12
barely edged out Steve
Shannon, who had a 77 and
plus 11 points but did not
make it onto a winning team.
Alvarez, with a one-under-par


GOLF NEWS

72 and plus 10 points, was a
close third.
It was Alvarez with his
plus 10 that got the most help
from his teammates as
Michael Kaufman (90) and
Doug Wolfe (86) both came in
at plus 4 while Wayne
Mortenson (99) was minus 5
as the team finished first at
plus 13.
Shave's plus 12 along with
Mike Joyce (one-under-par
72), Tim Poynter (83, even)
and Bob Riley (85, minus 2)

July 23 - 26, 2009


' RBC Canadian Open The Canadian Open is one of
Sthe most history-enriched
Defending: Chez Reavie tournaments on the PGA Tour.
Yards: 7,222 It is the second oldest stop on
Yards: 7,222 the PGA Tour and the third
,ar oldest national championship
since its inception in 1904. The event is held in Ontario, Canada at
the Glen Abbey Golf Club. The inaugural winner of this event was
John H. Oke, who pocketed a grand'winner's purse of $60.00. Leo
Diegel holds the record in this event with four wins in 1924, 1925,
1928 and 1929. Last year, PGA Tour rookie Chez Reavie played
like a seasoned veteran and won the Canadian Open by three shots
.over Billy Mayfair.


Stewart Cink
Birthdate: May 21, 1973
Birthplace: Huntsville, Ala.
Residence: Duluth, Ga.
Turned Professional: 1995
World Ranking: 9th
2009 Earnings: $2,330,522
Career PGA Tour Wins: 6


Which of these golfers finished in the top ten money
winners an amazing 18 seasons on the PGA Tour?
a) Jack Nicklaus c) Tom Watson
b) Arnold Palmer d) Lee Trevino

Answer: a) Jack Nicklaus.


SStewart Cink won the British Tournament Results
S Open on Sunday in a playoffwith tst: Stewart Cink
Tom Watson. Watson, 59, was Purse: $1,221005
trying to become the oldest 2nd: Tom Watson
S champion in golf history, but Purse: $732,603
missed an 8-foot putt to win on T-3rd: Chris Wood & Lee Westwood
the final hole of regulation, Purse: $415,142
forcing a four-hole playoff with Cink. Cink made two birdies in the
four-hole playoff and routed Watson, who suddenly looked his age,
by a whopping six strokes. Astroke behind at the third hole in the four-
hole playoff, Watson fell apart. After an errant tee shot, two whacks to get out of the
rough and three putts, he finished with a double-bogey 7, while Cink birdied the
hole. Cink then parred the final playoff hole for the victory.


S One of the most difficult shots to
master is a high, soft lob shot to a
S real tight pin placement, such as
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 fo
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.


Also on the PGA Tour last week, Bo Van Pelt won his first PGA Tour title at the -
Milwaukee Championship after he birdied the second hole of a sudden death \
playoff to beat fellow American John Mallinger. Van Pelt eased home a three-foot
putt after, missing a 26-footer to claim his first tour victory in 229 tournaments. "I
guess there comes a point in time where you draw a line in the sand and say,
'Enough is enough,'" the 34-year-old Van Pelt said. He and Mallinger both birdied the
first playoff hole after finishing regulation at 13-under 267 on the Brown Deer Park Golf Course in
Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Van Pelt started the day tied for ninth but his six-under 64, including a
birdie on the final hole, left him in a tie for first with Mallinger, who had a final round 65. American
Jerry Kelly shot a five-under.65 to finish in third at 268, 12-under.

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 fish-
ing license.
It provides all of the same exemptions as a
.regular license, including senior citizens, chil-
dren, disabled people who meet certain qualifi-
cations, active-duty military personnel while
home on leave and anglers who fish from a
licensed pier. In addition, the shoreline license
requirement includes two new exemptions:
anglers drawing food stamps, temporary cash
assistance or Medicaid; and anglers fishing in
their home counties who use cane poles or
other gear that does not depend on mechani-
cal 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 stamli 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. The state
will use up to 10 percent of the fees to promote
those sports. Visit MyFWC.com.

the last "Dumpster Baby." He
was found in a Dumpster, left
for dead when he was only 8

way to being house trained
and walks great on a leash.
Moby loves to run and play
with all of his foster siblings!
He would be a great fit into

Kara is an 11-month-old
tiger cat with a sweet and
calm demeanor. She is quiet
and would probably prefer a
home without a lot of rukus
going on around her. She was
found abandoned on the
island and was so happy to be
brought to our shelter for
.some food and TLC!
Honey is a smooth fox ter-
rier mix. When she came to
us, she was so afraid that she
hid in the back of her kennel
and didn't want anyone to
touch her. Now with attention
and the influence of her room-
mate, Gollam, she is much
more outgoing and playful.
She gets along with other
dogs, rides well in the car and
loves to go for walks.

Death of a hero


News-Leader


When President Harry Truman
presented Marine Corps Capt. Everett
Pope with the Congressional Medal
of .Honor in 1945, Pope told him he
would rather have that medal than be
president of the United States.
"I will never forget that," Pope told
veterans and residents of Osprey
Village in a Veterans Day tribute in
2004.
And America, and Amelia Island,
should never forget Pope - a true war
hero whose valor earned him the
nation's top military honor.
Pope was 90 .when he died
Thursday in Bath, Maine. Pope and
his wife Eleanor, who died in January,
lived in Maine and on Amelia Island

Everett Popereceived the

Honor in 1945.

during their retirement years.
Pope enlisted in the Marine Corps
in 1941, six months before the attack
on Pearl Harbor. He said he was one of
the 15 million "citizen soldiers" who
served their country when they were
called upon and went home to their
families when the war was over.
He received the Medal of Honor
for his bravery on the Island of Peleliu
in the western Pacific, when he and his


men were,fighting against Japanese
forces to capture an airstrip. The cita-
tion, which was signed by President
Franklin D. Roosevelt, states, "Capt.
Pope rallied his men and gallantly led
them to the summit in face of machine-
gun, mortar and sniper fire. Forced
by widespread hostile attack to deploy
the remnants of his company thinly in
order to hold the ground won, and
with his machineguns out of order and
insufficient water and ammunition, he
remained on the exposed hill with 12
men and one wounded officer deter-
mined to hold through the night"
Roosevelt died before he could
present Pope with the medal, so the
duty went to Truman, who presented

County may trim



expenses by 15%,



hold line on tax


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
have received a proposal to cut the
county budget for fiscal 2009-10 by
15 percent. Property taxeswould not
go up, but some services will be cuL.
The Nassau County Libraries, for
example, could have hours of opera-
tion reduced. Employees there and in
other county agencies, with the excep-
tion of the Building Department and
landfill, would not be laid off but work
hours might be cut.
Budget Director Ted Selby pre-
sented the budget July 15 calling for
spending of $142 million, compared to
$167 million this year. He said the
reduction would mean the county
could only spend money on essen-
tials in the coming year.
"Most counties around the state
are faced with severe personnel cuts.
... Fortunately, we're not quite in that
situation. My only caution is that we
may have a whole different story next
year," he told the commission.
"We're trying to convince (depart-
ment heads) that we're looking at
hard-core necessities this year. We're


not really interested in wish lists.
'We made some serious cuts to
gpt where we are," Selby added.
"Some of your department heads are
not happy, and you may be hearing
from them - but we think it's livable."
The budget cuts should not mean
additional layoffs with the exception
of the Building Department, which
is reducing its staffing because of
reduced building activity, and the
West Nassau Landfill, which is being
closed. There are not yet any final
totals on job cuts in those depart-
ments.
"Other than the departments
we've already talked about, we're not
going to need to lay anybody off,
right?" said Commission Chairman
Barry Holloway.
"That's correct," Selby said. "...
We're not anticipating having to let
anybody go."
Holloway agreed that in the cur-
rent economic climate, the county
needed to focus on necessities.
"We've been able in our county to
finally implement a capital improve-
ment plan and fund it," he said. "But

The possibility of extending the
county's no-wake zone into the
Intracoastal Waterway was discussed
at a joint meeting of the Nassau
County Commission and the Ocean;
Highway and Port Authority.
Although both boards agreed that a
no-wake zone is an important safety
consideration, they are handcuffed
by state rules limiting local govern-
ments' rights to regulate waterways.
In April, the county established a
no-wake zone in the waters around
the North End Boat Ramp. However,
many citizens told commissioners
July 15 that the ordinance didn't go far
enough, and that the waters of the
state-controlled Intracoastal
Waterway also need speed limits.
Jim Corbett of Nassau Fertilizer'
and Oil Co., which operates from the
former pogy plant property on the
Amelia River, said larger vessels aren't
a problem.
"(Commercial) vessels that come
in and out of the port are the least of
our concerns. These big vessels,


believe it or not, give off almost no
wake at all," he said. "Our biggest
concern is the small sport fishermen
going really fast - and not only caus-
ing damage, they've caused injuries.
"Each boater is responsible for
their own wake, but when they're
going so fast that by the time any-
thing happens they're a quarter-mile
away, it's nearly impossible to hold
them responsible," he added.
"I think it is time we go forward
with this through the state," said Janie
Thomas, executive director of the
Shrimp Producers Association. 'Take
it on, challenge it.... We're tired of our
people getting hurt and our boats get-
ting beat up."
Though the county has no author-
ity to set limits in the Intracoastal,
the commission instructed County
Attorney David Hallman to research
the process for asking the state to do
so.
"If there's a desire from citizen
complaints to set speed limits in the
channel, it's going to take the state
rule-making authority - in this case

Ron Kurtz, a local historian, points out historical landmarks and unique architecture on Centre Street to
students from the Oceans of Fun Reading Camp on June 26.


Oceans of Fun. for young



scholars at reading camp


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader


A t first glance it might seem like a typical bulld-
ing on a church'campus - quiet and unassum-
ing - but a booming voice with an official tone
filled an auxiliary room at St. Peter's Episcopal
Church on the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Eighth
Street with the announcement, "Will the meeting of the
'Oceans of Fun Reading Camp' please come to order."
If that phrase sounds governmental, it's because it
was uttered by Fernandina Beach Mayor Susan Steger to
open a question and answer session in news conference
format with queries submitted by young scholars as part
of a summer reading program the last week of June.
The mayoral visit was a final reward of sorts for the
weeklong "Oceans of Fun Reading Camp," along with a
historical learning walk down Centre Street that culmi-
nated with a boat ride on the Amelia River. But aside
from this finale and the fun of normal camp fare like arts
and crafts, sing-a-longs and games, Oceans of Fun served
as a supplemental learning opportunity for a group of 24
soon-to-be fourth graders from the former Atlantic
Elementary.
The idea for the camp was conceived by organizers as
a result of 30 locals who came together through a nation-
al organization called Study Circle (studycircles.org) to
discuss diversity issues within the community. After a
six-week study together, education became an area of pri-
mary interest, especially among rising third- and fourth-
graders regarding their reading abilities.
"These kids are tested each year on the FCAT and
there's a range from bottom to top." said Oceans of Fun
co-chair Paige Schlenker. "The bottom end (of achieve-
ment) get to go to a summer academy, the rest of the
kids don't because they're reading at a fairly good pace.
Some are on level, above level and some aren't quite
there yet. These are the kids that we were looking for."
And with 172 combined years of experience, six fully

certified teachers, mostly of the retired variety and most
with a reading or English background, shared their
expertise in an intimate setting where these young schol-
ars received valuable one-on-one attention.
"Kids move through six stations with four kids per
table - each developed by the teacher at that station,"
Schlenker said. "It is not supposed to look like school.
We wanted it to be a camp setting and the teachers have
been unbelievably creative, coming up.with games and
all kinds of different ways of learning."
The stations - which looked like, and were arranged
in a way that might usually be befitting of a wedding
reception - featured names that might serve to disguise
their overriding educational benefits. "Bingo Lingo"
focused on vocabulary, "Crack the Code" dealt with .
encoding and decoding, "Write On" featured a focus on
improved writing skills, "Mapping Your Way" was creat-
ed to teach reading strategies, "What was that?" sought
to boost reading comprehension and "Giggle Bunch"
increased skills and confidence in reading aloud.
"For the activity side, we brought in different presen-
ters each day," co-chair Myra Davenport said. "A local
author, Carlla Cato, came in Monday to read her first
publication. On Tuesday, Mary Lynn Torchia, a local pot-
ter, brought in all of her clay and instruments and each

OBITUARIES


Everett Parker Pope
Everett Parker Pope, 90,
died Thursday, July 16, 2009 at
Hill House in Bath, Maine
where he had been living since
September 2008.
Born in Milton, MA, on July
16, 1919, he was the son of

school sweetheart.
In June of 1942, he deployed
with the First Marine Division to
the Pacific. He served with the
Division at Guadalcanal and in

The H1N1 swine flu virus is worthy of
your concern, but not panic. This flu has
proved so far to be milder than feared, and
no more deadly or sickening than a normal
flu bug.
Still, there is reason to stay alert. This is
a worldwide pandemic, and the economic
and social consequences likely will be
greater than a normal flu season.
Schools and businesses have been
closed, church services and sporting events
canceled and patients quarantined in the
southern
hemisphere. Stay formed

now winter. For more information

hundreds and

sands in Florida, so the death toll of 16 thus
far is not frightening. Still, most of those
who have died are not the very old or very
young; they are mostly in their fifties, and
include a 9-year-old child and several vic-
tims in their 20's, 30's or 40's. Most had pre-
existing health issues, but not all.
Paranoia will not serve us. Neither will
making pariahs of the ill. What will help is
accurate, current information that reminds
us all to take precautions.
That is why we were disappointed when
the Nassau County Health Department
failed to alert the public to the first cases of
swine flu locally. All three of the patients
recovered after falling ill in May or June,
but it wasn't until last week that the illness-
es were confirmed.
We don't expect the health department
to send out a press release each time a
county resident is ill with swine flu; that
would be counterproductive. But recogni-
tion of the first illnesses would have remind-
ed the public that none of us is immune and
could have been an opportunity to further
educate.
All of us have heard the drill - wash your
hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes,
nose and mouth, avoid contact with people
who are coughing or apparently ill, don't go
to school or work if you are sick.
But nothing hits home like, well, when
someone in your home is hit.
There may have been no epidemiologi-
cal reason to alert the public in this case,
but the educational value was overlooked.
The health department, perhaps
responding to our concerns, issued a press
release Monday notifying the public that a
fourth swine flu case, a 12-year-old, has
been reported in Nassau County. The child,
who is now recovering, contracted the ill-
ness at a summer camp outside the county.
"This information is to remind residents
that swine flu continues to circulate
throughout Florida and the U.S., and there
will likely be ongoing reports of cases iden-
tified locally for an unknown period."
That is, stay alert and stay informed.

Mission (now) accomplished


President Bush stood under the infa-
mous "Mission Accomplished" banner
atop the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln and
announced the end of major combat operations
in Iraq, United States combat troops have
removed themselves from Iraq's urban areas
into more secure and remote bases of opera-
tions.
It is from these posts where our brave men
and women are now slated to conduct limited
operations to keep major transportation
avenues free from insurgent obstruction and to
provide assistance to Iraqi security forces -
should it be requested by the Iraqis them-
selves. Gone are the days of major U.S. led
combat operations that are not first approved
and probably directed by Iraq's leadership.
Most Americans can reasonably agree that
President Bush's May 1, 2003 declaration was
premature and in error; however, what is get-
'ting lost in the always politicized debate over
Iraq is the fact that the end of major combat
operations is now actually upon us. While this
monumental moment comes several years later
than anticipated or promised by the Bush
Administration, credit must be given to the for-
mer administration for its willingness to stay
the course and find the military and political
solutions necessary to reach this historic
accomplishment. General Petraeus and the
now-famous "surge" helped put our troops in a
position to accomplish their mission with the


numbers, equipment and
strategy necessary to over-
come a once-vibrant insur-
S i agency that had the support of
much of Iraq's Sunni popu-
lace.
But for the most part, this
historic military and political
milestone has gone unnoticed
- instead being overshadowed
MAKING by the recent flurry of celebri-
SENSE ty deaths, political scandals
and the recent start of a major
U.S. offefisive in Afghanistan.
Michael Hiding under this cover are
Reagan the naysayers - those severe
critics of the former adminis-
tration's inability to calm Iraq's violence and
political chaos after the announced cessation of
U.S. combat operations. After years of public
verbal flogging of former President Bush these
critics are now silent - unwilling to acknowl-
edge that perhaps the former administration
belatedly got it right.
While many of these critics have ample
ammunition at their disposal to debate the mer-
its of the original war strategy itself, none can
doubt that the aim of neutralizing the insur-
gency, ensuring free and fair elections, and
removing U.S. combat troops as the leading
security provider has been reached.
Regardless of one's view on the rationale
for the war itself, we can all agree that our men


and women of the armed forces and their coun-
terparts in various other government agencies
have served with distinction and done a
remarkable job in turning some of the world's
most unstable and dangerous cities and
provinces into a more unified nation that is now
stable enough to govern and secure itself.
Unfortunately, the cost has been high - with
over 4,000 American deaths and a stunning
30,000 plus wounded.
Those families who have lost loved ones
and the men and women recuperating from
their injuries can hopefully be comforted by
the fact that their sacrifices have freed a nation
from the evils of a dangerous tyrant and
achieved the military and political gains neces-
sary to remove our troops from the dangerous
role as security lead.
The road ahead for Iraq will remain turbu-
lent, as the pursuit of freedom so often is. The
future of Iraq is now in its own hands - a fate
yearned for by millions of oppressed peoples
across the globe. This is in sharp contrast to
the many.critics at home who want to continue
to focus on banners and poorly-timed speeches
of the past. Lost in this shuffle is a story of an
infant democracy in the Middle East that con-
tinues to go largely unnoticed.

President Ronald Reagan, is chairman and pres-

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Whatnext?
After being born and raised in
Nassau County, I'm appalled to think
that the leaders of Fernandina
Beach are considering charging for
parking ("Parking fee at Main
Beach?" on July 15)! What happened
to the small hometown I grew up
in? Whats next? Paying a tollbooth
to go over the bridge?
Julie Douglas
Kingsland, Ga.

Library funding
I urge the city to reconsider the
proposal to eliminate or reduce the
city's funding for the Fernandina
Beach library ("Parking fee at Main
Beach" on July 15). We are new-
comers to the island, but we have
bought a home here and hope to
stay. One of the factors in our deci-
sion to move here was the library
where I am now a volunteer. During
this time, I have had an opportuni-
ty to observe first-hand how impor-
tant the library is to so many people
in our community. ;I
Yesterday, I hlpEAd sekrady[ti V
people find books; some wanted fic-
tion, one wanted a book on guinea
pigs (she had recently gotten one).
Reading is a wonderful, safe and
educational recreational outlet for
children and adults. Take away the
library and young people (and
adults) will be forced to find some
other way to spend their time: watch-
ing TV, hanging out on the streets,
getting into trouble, drinking or
doing drugs. The ensuing expense
of police action, social services and
long-term educational loss will be
more, not less, expensive for the
city. Furthermore, many students
find their required summer reading
in the library because their families
cannot'afford to buy these books.
Parents who are home-schooling
their children, likewise, find the
resource essential to their program.
For adults as well, the library is
important. I read voraciously and
certainly cannot afford to buy each
book, newspaper or magazine I want
to read. This, I imagine, is the case
for most library patrons. In addi-
tion, many use the library's Internet
access for research, for job hunting
and for communication. For lonely,
single adults, it-provides an oppor-
tunity to be around other people. A
library can be a central gathering
place for the community and a place
to disseminate information about
local issues and events.
Our library, underfunded and
understaffed, is nevertheless an
important and vital resource for our
city. To close it down, or to make fur-
ther cuts in an already strapped
budget, will reduce all residents'
quality of life significantly. My hus-
band and I would not have moved
here if there had not been a library
because that would have told us a
great deal about the values of this
city.
The library is an easy target for
budget cuts since many of those
who use the library - teens, chil-
dren and adults - do not know how
to fight for this valuable resource.
Furthermore, library staff is muz-
zled by a law -that does not allow
public employees to fight for their
livelihood. Many communities are
trying to develop programs to entice
people, especially young people, into
their libraries and to increase library
use. Fernandina Beach should not
take a giant step backward and dis-
courage reading. Our library is a
treasure that needs more funding,
not less.
Nancy Dickson

Nosy baby
We now have a noise ordinance;
flawed as it is, it is our baby and we
are all stuck with it. As entertain-
ment venue owners we have to ask
ourselves how we got to this bad


place that we find ourselves in. Not
only are we dealing with poor sales,
rising fuel prices and trying to keep
our staffs employed, happy and mak-
ing money so they can feed and shel-
ter their families. We now have a
new intrusive vague noise ordi-
nance. How did we get here?
Let me see: I put up a noise wall
at a cost of over $10,000 to help con-
tain any noises that would come
from my place of business as a cour-
tesy to my neighbors. My building
faces North Second Street with
warehouses as my nearest neigh-
bors in an industrial district. I have
always been conscientious and tried
to run a respectable business and I
tried to keep our guests in line so as
not to cause a disturbance. I kept
all my entertainment confined to
the interior of my building. In three
years I can only recall one visit by
the local police over noise.
But I do recall walking to my
home on South Fifth Street after
closing down my kitchen at mid-
night or i a.m. and the Green Turtle
having a five- or six-piece jam band
set up outside cranked all the way up
with many appreciative fans yelling
and cheering. I thought, Wow!
That's something with that old hotel
there and all right downtown. I saw
this week after week month after
month. This was before I knew any-
thing about a problem there. I was
still a greenhorn and assumed this
was the way business was done in
downtown. I thought that the Florida
House and Green Turtle were under
one ownership. Because I could not
imagine one business owner would
do that to another without some
money changing hands. My busi-
ness was on North Second light
years away from downtown and not
really any of my concern or busi-
ness.
Things are different now the
Green Turtle's actions and disre-
spect of their neighbors' needs and
rights has thrown all of us into a
very bad situation. Any fool would
know that running bands outdoors
at full throttle, at the doorstep of a
Fernandina landmark hotel is going
to get some kind of response.
Newton's third law: for every action
there is an equal and opposite reac-
tion. The Green Turtle's thumbing
their nose at the local conventions
and lack of respect has brought a
whirlwind. How many jobs has their
behavior put at risk? How many
more jobs can this town stand to
lose? At the city meeting represen-
tatives of the Green Turtle made
comments about the owners of the
Florida House as if one's past gave
another person the right to walk all


over them.
Hotels pay bed tax. Bed taxis
what pays for advertising for
tourists. Tourists are the lifeblood of
Sour local economy. The Florida
House Inn has brought us the
Amelia Island songwriters' festival.
It fills hotels, restaurants and bars.
The Green Turtle brought us the
new sound ordinance. You tell me
which is better for jobs?

Arealhero
We're hearing a lot today about
big splashy memorial services. I
want a nationwide memorial service
for Darrell "Shifty" Powers.
Shifty volunteered for the air-
borne in World War II and served
with Easy Company of the 506th
Parachute Infantry Regiment, part
of the 101st Airborne Infantry. If"
you've seen Band of Brothers on
HBO or the History Channel, you
know Shifty. His character appears
in all 10 episodes, and Shifty himself
is interviewed in several of them.
I met Shifty in the Philadelphia
airport several years ago. I didn't
know who he was at the time. I just
saw an elderly gentleman having
trouble reading his ticket. I offered
to help, assured him that he was at
the right gate, and noticed the
"Screaming Eagle," the symbol of
the 101st Airborne, on his hat.
Making conversation, I asked
him if he'd been in the 101st
Airborne or if his son was serving.
He said quietly that he had been in
the 101st. I thanked him for his
service, then asked him when he
served and how many jumps he
made.
Quietly and humbly, he said,
"Well, I guess I signed up in 1941 or
so, and was in until sometime in
1945... " at which point my heart
skipped.
At that point, again, very humbly,
he said, "I made the five training
jumps at Toccoa, and then jumped
into Normandy.... Do you know
where Normandy is?" At this point
my heart stopped.
I told him yes, I know exactly


where Normandy was, and I know
what D-Day was. At that point he
said, "I also made a second jump
into Holland, into Arnhem." I was
standing with a genuine war hero .
. . and then I realized that it was
June, just after the anniversary of D-
Day.
I asked Shifty if he was on his
wayback from France, and he said,
"Yes. And it's real sad because these
days so few of the guys are left, and
those that are, lots of them can't
make the trip." My heart was in my
throat and I didn't know what to
say.
I helped Shifty get onto the plane
and then realized he was back in
coach, while Iwas in first-class. I
sent the flight attendant back to get
him and said that I wanted to switch
seats. When Shifty came forward, I
got up out ofdthe seat and told'him
I wanted him to have it, thatrd take
his in coach. .
He said, "No, son, you enjoy that
seat. Jst knowing that there are
still some who remember what we
did and still care is enough to make
an old man very happy." His eyes
were filling up as he said it And
mine are brimming up now as I
write this.
,Shifty died on June 17 after fight-
ing cancer.
There was no parade,
No big event in Staples Center.
No wall-to-wall back-to-back 24/7
news coverage.
No weeping fans on television;
And that's not right.
Lets give Shifty his own memo-
rial service, online, in our own quiet
way. Please forward this e-mail to
everyone'you know. Especially to
the veteraii.
Rest in peace, Shifty.

Doofusville
The article 'The Long Road to
Doofusville" (Cup of Joe, July 3)
was very educational!
I was on my way home from
Jacksonville via 1-95 and had to drive
through a horrendous frog-drown-
er, complete with raging thunder,
lightning and sheets of rain. I was
lucky not to encounter any dorks
driving stealth bombers (black
SUVs using parking lights) but I
counted at least 14 cars with their
emergency flashers on.
My guess is they were all head-
ing to Doofusville, which is getting
to be a pretty popular destination
these days.

County may trim



expenses by 15%,



hold line on tax


RYAN SMITH
News Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
have received a proposal to cut the
county budget for fiscal 2009-10 by
15 percent. Property taxes would not
go up, but some services will be cut.
The Nassau County Libraries, for
example, could have hours of opera-
tion reduced. Employees there and in
other county agencies, with the excep-
tion of the Building Department and
landfill, would not be laid off but work
hours might be cut.
Budget Director Ted Selby pre-
sented the budget July 15 calling for
spending of $142 million, compared to
$167 million this year. He said the
reduction would mean the county
could only spend money on essen-
tials in the coming year.
"Most counties around the state
are faced with severe personnel cuts.
... Fortunately, we're not quite in that
situation. My only caution is that we
may have a whole different story next
year," he told the commission.
"We're trying to convince (depart-
ment heads) that we're looking at
hard-core necessities this year. We're


not really interested in wish lists.
"We made some serious cuts to
get where we are," Selby added.
"Some of your department heads are
not happy, and you may be hearing
from them - but we think it's livable."
The budget cuts should not mean
additional layoffs with the exception
of the Building Department, which
is reducing its staffing because of
reduced building activity, and the
West Nassau Landfill, which is being
closed. There are not yet any final
totals on job cuts in those depart-
ments.
"Other than the departments
we've already talked about, we're not
going to need to lay anybody off,
right?" said Commission Chairman
Barry Holloway.
"That's correct," Selby said. "...
We're not anticipating having to let
anybody go."
Holloway agreed that in the cur-
rent economic climate, the county
needed to focus on necessities.
"We've been able in our county to
finally implement a capital improve-
ment plan and fund it," he said. "But

RYAN SMITH
News Leader
The possibility of extending the
county's no-wake zone into the
Intracoastal Waterway was discussed
at a joint meeting of the Nassau
County Commission and the Ocean,
Highway and Port Authority.
Although both boards agreed that a
no-wake zone is an important safety
consideration, they are handcuffed
by state rules limiting local govern-
ments' rights to regulate waterways.
In April, the county established a
no-wake zone in the waters around
the North End Boat Ramp. However,
many citizens told commissioners
July 15 that the ordinance didn't go far
enough, and that the waters of the
state-controlled Intracoastal
Waterway also need speed limits.
Jim Corbett of Nassau Fertilizer
and Oil Co., which operates from the
former pogy plant property on the
Amelia River, said larger vessels aren't
a problem.
"(Commercial) vessels that come
in and out of the port are the least of
our concerns. These big vessels,


believe it or not, give off almost no
wake at all," he said. "Our biggest
concern is the small sport fishermen
going really fast - and not only caus-
ing damage, they've caused injuries.
"Each boater is responsible for
their own wake, but when they're
going so fast that by the time any-
thing happens they're a quarter-mile
away, it's nearly impossible to hold
them responsible," he added.
"I think it is time we go forward
with this through the state," said Janie
Thomas, executive director of the
Shrimp Producers Association. 'Take
it on, challenge it.... We're tired of our
people getting hurt and our boats get-
ting beat up."
Though the county has no author-
ity to set limits in the Intracoastal,
the commission instructed County
Attorney David Hallman to research
the process for asking the state to do
so.
"If there's a desire from citizen
complaints to set speed limits in the
channel, it's going to take the state
rule-making authority - in this case

Death of a hero


News Leader


When President Harry Truman
presented Marine Corps Capt. Everett
Pope with the Congressional Medal
of Honor in 1945, Pope told him he
would rather have that medal than be
president of the United States.
"I will never forget that," Pope told
veterans and residents of Osprey
Village in a Veterans Day tribute in
2004.
And America, and Amelia Island,
should never forget Pope - a true war
hero whose valor earned him the
nation's top military honor.
Pope was 90 when he died
Thursday in Bath, Maine. Pope and
his wife Eleanor, who died in January,
lived in Maine and on Amelia Island


Marine Corps Capt.
Everett Pope received the
Congressional Medal of
Honor in 1945.

during their retirement years.
Pope enlisted in the Marine Corps
in 1941, six months before the attack
on Pearl Harbor. He said he was one of
the 15 million "citizen soldiers" who
served their country when they were
called upon and went home to their
families when the war was over.
He received the Medal of Honor
for his bravery on the Island of Peleliu
in the western Pacific, when he and his


men were fighting against Japanese
forces to capture an airstrip. The cita-
tion, which was signed by President
Franklin D. Roosevelt, states, "Capt.
Pope rallied his men and gallantly led
them to the summit in face of machine-
gun, mortar and sniper fire. Forced
by widespread hostile attack to deploy
the remnants of his company thinly in
order to hold the ground won, and
with his machineguns out of order and
insufficient water and ammunition, he
remained on the exposed hill with 12
men and one wounded officer deter-
mined to hold through the night."
Roosevelt died before he could
present Pope with the medal, so the
duty went to Truman, who presented

JASON YURGARTIS/NEWS-LEADER
Ron Kurtz, a local historian, points out historical landmarks and unique architecture on Centre Street to
students from the Oceans of Fun Reading Camp on June 26.



Oceans ofFun'for young



scholars at reading camp

JASON YURGARTIS
News- Leader


A t first glance it might seem like a typical build-
ing on a church campus - quiet and unassum-
ing - but a booming voice with an official tone
filled an auxiliary room at St. Peter's Episcopal
Church on the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Eighth
Street with the announcement, "Will the meeting of the
'Oceans of Fun Reading Camp' please come to order."
If that phrase sounds governmental, it's because it
was uttered by Fernandina Beach Mayor Susan Steger to
open a question and answer session in news conference
format with queries submitted by young scholars as part
of a summer reading program the last week of June.
The mayoral visit was a final reward of sorts for the
weeklong "Oceans of Fun Reading Camp," along with a
historical learning walk down Centre Street that culmi-
nated with a boat ride on the Amelia River. But aside
from this finale and the fun of normal camp fare like arts
and crafts, sing-a-longs and games, Oceans of Fun served
as a supplemental learning opportunity for a group of 24
soon-to-be fourth graders from the former Atlantic
Elementary.
The idea for the camp was conceived by organizers as
a result of 30 locals who came together through a nation-
al organization called Study Circle (studycircles.org) to
discuss diversity issues within the community. After a
six-week study together, education became an area of pri-
mary interest, especially among rising third- and fourth-
graders regarding their reading abilities.
'These kids are tested each year on the FCAT and
there's a range from bottom to top." said Oceans of Fun
co-chair Paige Schlenker. "The bottom end (of achieve-
ment) get to go to a summer academy, the rest of the
kids don't because they're reading at a fairly good pace.
Some are on level, above level and some aren't quite
there yet. These are the kids that we were looking for."
And with 172 combined years of experience, six fully


'Everything we've done here is to help
build confidence, encourage them to
have a good attitude toward reading
and to want to read a little better.'

certified teachers, mostly of the retired variety and most
with a reading or English background, shared their
expertise in an intimate setting where these young schol-
ars received valuable one-on-one attention.
"Kids move through six stations with four kids per
table - each developed by the teacher at that station,"
Schlenker said. "It is not supposed to look like school.
We wanted it to be a camp setting and the teachers have
been unbelievably creative, coming up with games and
all kinds of different ways of learning."
The stations - which looked like, and were arranged
in a way that might usually be befitting of a wedding
reception - featured names that might serve to disguise
their overriding educational benefits. "Bingo Lingo"
focused on vocabulary, "Crack the Code" dealt with
encoding and decoding, "Write On" featured a focus on
improved writing skills, "Mapping Your Way" was creat-
ed to teach reading strategies, "What was that?" sought
to boost reading comprehension and "Giggle Bunch"
increased skills and confidence in reading aloud.
"For the activity side, we brought in different presen-
ters each day," co-chair Myra Davenport said. "A local
author, Carlla Cato, came in Monday to read her first
publication. On Tuesday, Mary Lynn Torchia, a local pot-
ter, brought in all of her clay and instruments and each

OBITUARIES


Everett Parker Pope
Everett Parker Pope, 90,
died Thursday, July 16, 2009 at
Hill House in Bath, Maine
where he had been living since
September 2008.
Born in Milton, MA, on July
16, 1919, he was the son of
Laurence Everett Pope and
Ruth Parker Pope. After gradu-
ation from North Quincy High
School, he attended Bowdoin
College, graduating magna cum
laude and a member of Phi Beta
Kappa. He enlisted in the
Marine Corps after graduation,
and after basic training and com-
pletion of officer's candidate
school in Quantico, VA, he mar-
ried Eleanor Hawkins, his high
school sweetheart.
In June of 1942, he deployed
with the First Marine Division to
the Pacific. He served with the
Division at Guadalcanal and in
the New Britain campaign,
receiving the Bronze Star Medal
for valor. In the First Marine
Division's assault on Peleliu in
September of 1944 he led his
reinforced rifle company in an
assault on heavily fortified
Japanese positions, an action for
which he was awarded the
Congressional Medal of Honor.
The citation reads in part:
"Subjected to pointblank can-
non fire which caused heavy
casualties and badly disorgan-
ized his company while assault-
ing a steep coral hill, Capt. Pope
rallied his men and gallantly led
them to the summit in the face
of machinegun, mortar, and
sniper fire. Forced by wide-
spread hostile attack to deploy
the remnants of his company
thinly in order to hold the
ground won, and with his
machineguns out of order and
insufficient water and ammuni-
tion, he remained on the
exposed hill with 12 men and 1
wounded officer determined to
hold through the night.
Attacked continuously with
grenades, machineguns, and
rifles from 3 sides, he and his
valiant men fiercely beat back or
destroyed the enemy, resorting
to hand-to-hand combat as the
supply of ammunition dwindled,
and still maintaining his lines
with his 8 remaining riflemen
when daylight brought more
deadly fire and he was ordered
to withdraw."
After the war he returned to
Boston and joined
Workingmens Cooperative
Bank. In 1953 he was named
president of that institution,
making him the youngest bank
president in New England. For
many years he was a leader in
the savings and loan industry,
pioneering the use of interest-
bearing checking accounts. He
was a long-standing supporter of
the federal student loan pro-


gram and
served as the
first Chair-
man of the
Board of
S Massachu-
setts Higher
Education
Assistance
Corporation in 1982.
He retired from the banking
business in 1983, and moved
with Eleanor to Brunswick, ME.
He served on the governing
boards of Bowdoin from 1961
when he was elected to the
board of Overseers until 1988
when he was elected Trustee
Emeritus. During his tenure on
Bowdoin's governing boards,
he chaired two presidential
search committees, co-chaired
a capital campaign, and provid-
ed wise leadership as President
of the Overseers and Chairman
of the Board of Trustees dur-
ing a period of transition for the
College away from the fraterni-
ty system.
After stepping down as
Chairman, he led the effort to
establish a memorial on the
Bowdoin campus to the gradu-
ates of the College who died in
World War II, Korea, and
Vietnam. He was the recipient of
two honorary degrees from
Bowdoin, in 1946 and 1987. The
1987 honorary degree citation
ends with the following:
"Semper fidelis as a U.S.
Marine, you have also been
semper prudens, always wise
and far-sighted as a colleague
and counselor. We salute your
many years of service to the
common good and declare you
honors causa, DOCTOR OF
LAWS."
In his retirement years, he
lived at Amelia Island, FL, and
on Great Pond in Belgrade
Lakes, ME, with his beloved
wife of 66 years, Eleanor, who
died at Hill House on January
22nd of this year.
He is survived by sons
Laurence and Ralph, their wives
Elizabeth and Jean, and two
granddaughters, Eleanor and
Elizabeth.
There will be a service cele-
brating the lives of both Everett
and Eleanor in the Bowdoin
College chapel at 4:00 on Friday,
July 31followed by a reception.
Burial of both will be at
Arlington National Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, contributions
may be made to the Pope
Scholarship Fund at Bowdoin
College.
The family wishes to express
its deepest appreciation to the
staff of Hill House for the devot-
ed care they provided during
this difficult time.

FUN Continued from 1A
child made a piece of pottery."
And on one day, scholars
wrote questions for the
mayor at the writing station,
Davenport said.
Both Schlenker and
Davenport said initial returns
were very positive. They said
they received an over-
whelming positive response
from parents by the second
day and overheard children
saying things like: "Is this
camp, or is this heaven?"
'This is nothing like school."
And "I like this camp better
than cheerleading camp."
"Everything we've done
here is to help build confi-
dence because we're not
under the illusion that we can
teach a child how to read or
even read better in a week,
but we can certainly help
build self-confidence, encour-
age them to have a good atti-
tude toward reading and to
want to read a little better,"
Davenport said.
The confidence-building
component seemed apparent
on the final day of the camp
when the young scholars
approached the mayor direct-
ly, front and center of the
room, to draw a question
from a basket. She was
addressed with questions
like, Is the town haunted?
What is your favorite food?
How many people live in
Fernandina? And even, Can
you give me a ride home this
afternoon?
After about 20 minutes of
questions and answers with
the scholars, the mayor had
some high praise for the
camp.
"Oceans of Fun shows
what great volunteers can do
for the children in our com-
munity," Steger said. li!! i l
such as this should not go
unrecognized and volunteers
made a huge effort to make
a week these kids will never
forget."
Schlenker and Davenport
are looking toward the
future, including a camp in
Yulee. "This space was donat-
ed by St. Peter's...,"
Schlenker said. 'This is what
we're looking for in Yulee."


BUDGET Continued from 1A
based on the situation we're fac-
ing this year, let's take a deep
breath on the capital improve-
ment plan this year, and let's
not spend any money unless we
have to."
Selby also recommended
that the county keep both its
countywide and municipal mill-
age rates at the current year's
levels of 5.567 and 1.6694,
respectively, rather than boost-
ing them to the state-allowed
levels.
The millage rate is the rate at
which property is taxed. A mil
equals 1/100th of a dollar.
Therefore, under the current
rates a taxpayer would pay
about $5.57 for every $1,000 of
taxable property value at the
countywide rate. The municipal
rate is added to the countywide
rate for residents living in unin-
corporated areas; those in
Fernandina Beach, Hilliard and
Callahan do not pay the munic-
ipal rate, but do pay taxes
imposed by their own city gov-
ernments.
Keeping the millage rates

the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission," said Hallman.
"You have to show that those
regulations are necessary,"
added Assistant County
Attorney Mollie Garrett. "We're
going to have to focus on safe-
ty and vessel traffic congestion.
... It's been strongly advised that
in order to make the request, we
need hard evidence."
County Commissioner
Danny Leeper worried about
the amount of proof the state
would require.
"It's easy for a property
owner to say there's a haz-
ardous condition, but the bur-
den is on us or the property
owner to prove it," he said. "I'd
like to think of this board as
more proactive than reactive,
but apparently the state gov-
ernment won't allow us to be
proactive in preventing acci-
dents out there."
County Commissioner
Walter Boatright wanted the
state's evidence requirements
spelled out more clearly.

steady will mean a drop in prop-
erty tax revenue for the county.
With a decline in countywide
property values, the Office of
Management and Budget pro-
jected a drop from 2008-9's $53
million in ad valorem revenue to
about $51.1 million in the com-
ing year - a $1.9 million decline.
Selby also estimated a shortfall
of about $1 million in revenue
from sales and fuel taxes.
However, Selby said he did-
n't anticipate any major
decrease in services.
"Some of the department
heads are obviously concer-
ned," he said Friday. "I am not
personally aware of any major
services being cut."
While services may not be
cut, some will be scaled back.
"The recommendation (County
Coordinator Ed) Sealover put
in (the library's) budget was to
reduce their operating hours,"
Selby said Friday. "At the pres-
ent time, we don't think that will
require a reduction in force, but
it may require a reduction in
hours."
The library will still be able
to purchase new books in the

"When it says, 'number of
boating accidents,' do they give
a timeframe?" he asked.
"They don't give a time-
frame," Garrett said. "They want
to see a number of accidents
that gives them competent and
substantial evidence that there's
a need to have a no-wake zone.
... I think the North End Boat
Ramp opened in 2003, so it
would be reasonable to go back
at least that far."
One of the biggest obstacles
could be the fact that people
don't file official reports about
dangerous wakes that often.
"If people aren't reporting it,
we have no legal ground to
stand on," OHPA Chair Cari
Cahill said.

upcoming year. "There will be a
book budget," Selby said
Monday. "It may be somewhat
reduced."
While jobs are not being
eliminated except at the Build-
ing Department and the land-
fill, no existing vacancies will
be filled. However, newly vacant
positions may be filled in the
coming year, Selby said.
"All vacancies were elimi-
nated, except anything that's
maybe come up since we put
this thing together, with a cou-
ple of notable exceptions," main-
ly in the Animal Control depart-
ment, he said. "For example, if
someone from Road and Bridge
were to resign last week, we
might replace him. There's still
a (hiring) freeze, though, so it
would still have to go to the
board for approval."
The county commission has
until Aug. 11 to set a tentative
millage rate based on Selby's
recommendation. The com-
mission must also set two pub-
lic hearings to give taxpayers
the opportunity to give their
input on the budget.
rsmith@fbnewsleadercom

the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office recommended looking
further than just the files of local
law enforcement.
"I can tell you that we handle
very few boating accidents. In
last few years we've handled
maybe five or six," he said.
"Most are handled by state
agencies. But what incident
reports we do have we can com-
pile for you. ... I'd recommend
not just the sheriff's office, but
all agencies that have enforce-
ment authority on the water."
Both commissions agreed
that Hallman would meet with
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves and
State Attorney Wesley White to
discuss a method of compiling
statistics for the state.

HERO Continued from 1A
his first Congressional Medal
of Honor to Pope.
News-Leader columnist
Dickie Anderson described
Pope in a 2004 column as "a
handsome white-haired gen-
tleman with blue eyes that are
startling in their clarity and
brightness. Add a quick smile
and gentle sense of humor."
Anderson wrote, "As you
walk in the Pope's front door,
the first thing you see is a pho-
tograph of a handsome young
man in uniform with President
Truman standing behind him
and fastening the ribbon
with the Congressional Medal
of Honor around his neck.
Below the photograph is the
medal."
About 3,400 such medals
have been given since it was
created in 1861, and fewer than
50 living recipients.
Pope was born in Milton,


Mass., and attended Bowdoin
College, graduating magna
cum laude. He enlisted in the
Marine Corps after graduation,
and after basic training and
completion of officer's candi-

A proposal to charge fo
parking at the beach and ii
downtown Fernandina Bead
has brought mostly objection
- some vehement - from cit
zens on an online discussion
board.
Mayor Susan Steger intro
duced the topic to the
Fernandina Beach and Amelia

The green sprouts of eco-
nomic growth are beginning
to spread like St. Augustine
grass after a heavy rain and a
downpour of fertilizer.
The term "green sprouts"
has been widely used to
describe buds of vitality in a
U.S. economy weakened by a
financial crisis, frozen credit
markets, and escalating unem-
ployment. The sprouts have

have to be discounted to

* Manufacturing and
industrial production numbers
continue to improve in many
parts of the U.S. This is based
on the variety of surveys con-
ducted each month.
Here in Fernandina Beach,
this summer looks and feels
like the busiest in recent
memory. Restaurants are
often packed and the streets
are bustling with tourists from
across the country.
Many people, from restau-
rant owners to beachgoers to
the man on the street, sur-
mised that the Fourth of July
weekend was the biggest ever
for this area. Even the crowds
gathering on the beach and in
downtown for the fireworks
were the largest in most resi-
dents' memories.
For a tourism-based econo-
my like ours, an economic
downturn doesn't help - but it
doesn't always hurt as much
as some might think. Many
people opt for a weekend at
the beach over an expensive
European vacation or a cruise
as a way to save money. Even
cash-strapped families can
usually afford a drive-in vaca-
tion to Amelia Island, for
instance.


The resorts are also
reporting robust inflows of
guests. This past weekend
there were three or four wed-
dings held at The Ritz-Carlton,
Amelia Island, for instance.
These types of once-in-a-life-
time events are big winners
for hotels and resorts.
Government leaders have
pushed down interest rates as
a means of flooding the econo-
my with money. The premise
is that individuals and busi-
nesses will borrow affordable
money and spend it. This has
also led to a spree of mort-
gage refinancing for those
with decent credit.
The global economy is
demonstrating similar positive
signs of growth. Led by
China, much of Asia, as well
as Brazil, foreign markets are
recovering from the financial
fallout and are again striking
prosperity. Europe appears to
be lagging behind the U.S. in
its economic recovery, howev-
er.
Maybe the American initia-
tive to "go green" has other
valuable applications.

City OKs marina repairs


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners have approved an insur-
ance payment of $18,000, plus a
city deductible of $10,000, for
repairs to a city dock that
caught fire in May.
The city has already
received a check for $18,437,
which will be passed on to
Worth Contracting along with
the city's portion, for dock
and piling repair, as well as
repair of the fire suppression
and electrical systems. The
city's insurance company
will seek reimbursement of
the entire cost of the repairs
against the owners' insurance
company.
The exact cause of the fire,

The H1N1 swine flu virus is worthy of
your concern, but not panic. This flu has
proved so far to be milder than feared, and
no more deadly or sickening than a normal
flu bug.
Still, there is reason to stay alert. This is
a worldwide pandemic, and the economic
and social consequences likely will be
greater than a normal flu season.
Schools and businesses have been
closed, church services and sporting events
canceled and patients quarantined in the


southern
hemisphere,
where it is
now winter.
We can antici-

sands in Florida, so the death toll of 16 thus
far is not frightening. Still, most of those
who have died are not the very old or very
young; they are mostly in their fifties, and
include a 9-year-old child and several vic-
tims in their 20's, 30's or 40's. Most had pre-
existing health issues, but not all.
Paranoia will not serve us. Neither will
making pariahs of the ill. What will help is
accurate, current information that reminds
us all to take precautions.
That is why we were disappointed when
the Nassau County Health Department
failed to alert the public to the first cases of
swine flu locally. All three of the patients
recovered after falling ill in May or June,
but it wasn't until last week that the illness-
es were confirmed.
We don't expect the health department
to send out a press release each time a
county resident is ill with swine flu; that
would be counterproductive. But recogni-
tion of the first il.... I would have remind-
ed the public that none of us is immune and
could have been an opportunity to further
educate.
All of us have heard the drill - wash your
hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes,
nose and mouth, avoid contact with people
who are coughing or apparently ill, don't go
to school or work if you are sick.
But nothing hits home like, well, when
someone in your home is hit.
There may have been no epidemiologi-
cal reason to alert the public in this case,
but the educational value was overlooked.
The health department, perhaps
responding to our concerns, issued a press
release Monday notifying the public that a
fourth swine flu case, a 12-year-old, has
been reported in Nassau County. The child,
who is now recovering, contracted the ill-
ness at a summer camp outside the county.
"This information is to remind residents
that swine flu continues to circulate
throughout Florida and the U.S., and there
will likely be ongoing reports of cases iden-
tified locally for an unknown period."
That is, stay alert and stay informed.

Mission (now) accomplished


President Bush stood under the infa-
mous "Mission Accomplished" banner
atop the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln and
announced the end of major combat operations
in Iraq, United States combat troops have
removed themselves from Iraq's urban areas
into more secure and remote bases of opera-
tions.
It is from these posts where our brave men
and women are now slated to conduct limited
operations to keep major transportation
avenues free from insurgent obstruction and to
provide assistance to Iraqi security forces -
should it be requested by the Iraqis them-
selves. Gone are the days of major U.S. led
combat operations that are not first approved
and probably directed by Iraq's leadership.
Most Americans can reasonably agree that
President Bush's May 1, 2003 declaration was
premature and in error; however, what is get-
ting lost in the always politicized debate over
Iraq is the fact that the end of major combat
operations is now actually upon us. While this
monumental moment comes several years later
than anticipated or promised by the Bush
Administration, credit must be given to the for-
mer administration for its willingness to stay
the course and find the military and political
solutions necessary to reach this historic
accomplishment. General Petraeus and the
now-famous "surge" helped put our troops in a
position to accomplish their mission with the

numbers, equipment and
strategy necessary to over-
come a once-vibrant insur-
gency that had the support of
much of Iraq's Sunni popu-
lace.
But for the most part, this
historic military and political
milestone has gone unnoticed
- instead being overshadowed
by the recent flurry of celebri-
ty deaths, political scandals
and the recent start of a major
U.S. offensive in Afghanistan.
Hiding under this cover are
the naysayers - those severe
critics of the former adminis-


tration's inability to calm Iraq's violence and
political chaos after the announced cessation of
U.S. combat operations. After years of public
verbal flogging of former President Bush these
critics are now silent - unwilling to acknowl-
edge that perhaps the former administration
belatedly got it right.
While many of these critics have ample
ammunition at their disposal to debate the mer-
its of the original war strategy itself, none can
doubt that the aim of neutralizing the insur-
gency, ensuring free and fair elections, and
removing U.S. combat troops as the leading
security provider has been reached.
Regardless of one's view on the rationale
for the war itself, we can all agree that our men


and women of the armed forces and their coun-
terparts in various other government agencies
have served with distinction and done a
remarkable job in turning some of the world's
most unstable and dangerous cities and
provinces into a more unified nation that is now
stable enough to govern and secure itself.
Unfortunately, the cost has been high - with
over 4,000 American deaths and a stunning
30,000 plus wounded.
Those families who have lost loved ones
and the men and women recuperating from
their injuries can hopefully be comforted by
the fact that their sacrifices have freed a nation
from the evils of a dangerous tyrant and
achieved the military and political gains neces-
sary to remove our troops from the dangerous
role as security lead.
The road ahead for Iraq will remain turbu-
lent, as the pursuit of freedom so often is. The
future of Iraq is now in its own hands - a fate
yearned for by millions of oppressed peoples
across the globe. This is in sharp contrast to
the many critics at home who want to continue
to focus on banners and poorly-timed speeches
of the past. Lost in this shuffle is a story of an
infant democracy in the Middle East that con-
tinues to go largely unnoticed.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Whatnext?
After being born and raised in
Nassau County, I'm appalled to think
that the leaders of Fernandina
Beach are considering charging for
parking ("Parking fee at Main
Beach?" on July 15)! What happened
to the small hometown I grew up
in? What's next? Paying a tollbooth
to go over the bridge?
Julie Douglas
Kingsland, Ga.

Library funding
I urge the city to reconsider the
proposal to eliminate or reduce the
city's funding for the Fernandina
Beach library ("Parking fee at Main
Beach" on July 15). We are new-
comers to the island, but we have
bought a home here and hope to
stay. One of the factors in our deci-
sion to move here was the library
where I am now a volunteer. During
this time, I have had an opportuni-
ty to observe first-hand how impor-
tant the library is to so many people
in our community.
Yesterday, I helped severalyoung
people find books; some wanted fic-
tion, one wanted a book on guinea
pigs (she had recently gotten one).
Reading is a wonderful, safe and
educational recreational outlet for
children and adults. Take away the
library and young people (and
adults) will be forced to find some
other way to spend their time: watch-
ing TV, hanging out on the streets,
getting into trouble, drinking or
doing drugs. The ensuing expense
of police action, social services and
long-term educational loss will be
more, not less, expensive for the
city. Furthermore, many students
find their required summer reading
in the library because their families
cannot afford to buy these books.
Parents who are home-schooling
their children, likewise, find the
resource essential to their program.
For adults as well, the library is
important. I read voraciously and
certainly cannot afford to buy each
book, newspaper or magazine I want
to read. This, I imagine, is the case
for most library patrons. In addi-
tion, many use the library's Internet
access for research, for job hunting
and for communication. For lonely,
single adults, it provides an oppor-
tunity to be around other people. A
library can be a central gathering
place for the community and a place
to disseminate information about
local issues and events.
Our library, underfunded and
understaffed, is nevertheless an
important and vital resource for our
city. To close it down, or to make fur-
ther cuts in an already strapped
budget, will reduce all residents'
quality of life significantly. My hus-
band and I would not have moved
here if there had not been a library
because that would have told us a
great deal about the values of this
city.
The library is an easy target for
budget cuts since many of those
who use the library - teens, chil-
dren and adults - do not know how
to fight for this valuable resource.
Furthermore, library staff is muz-
zled by a law that does not allow
public employees to fight for their
livelihood. Many communities are
trying to develop programs to entice
people, especially young people, into
their libraries and to increase library
use. Fernandina Beach should not
take a giant step backward and dis-
courage reading. Our library is a
treasure that needs more funding,
not less.

Noisybaby
We now have a noise ordinance;
flawed as it is, it is our baby and we
are all stuck with it. As entertain-
ment venue owners we have to ask
ourselves how we got to this bad


place that we find ourselves in. Not
only are we dealing with poor sales,
rising fuel prices and trying to keep
our staffs employed, happy and mak-
ing money so they can feed and shel-
ter their families. We now have a
new intrusive vague noise ordi-
nance. How did we get here?
Let me see: I put up a noise wall
at a cost of over $10,000 to help con-
tain any noises that would come
from my place of business as a cour-
tesy to my neighbors. My building
faces North Second Street with
warehouses as my nearest neigh-
bors in an industrial district. I have
always been conscientious and tried
to run a respectable business and I
tried to keep our guests in line so as
not to cause a disturbance. I kept
all my entertainment confined to
the interior of my building. In three
years I can only recall one visit by
the local police over noise.
But I do recall walking to my
home on South Fifth Street after
closing down my kitchen at mid-
night or 1 a.m. and the Green Turtle
having a five- or six-piece jam band
set up outside cranked all the way up
with many appreciative fans yelling
and cheering. I thought, Wow!
That's something with that old hotel
there and all right downtown. I saw
this week after week month after
month. This was before I knew any-
thing about a problem there. I was
still a greenhorn and assumed this
was the way business was done in
downtown. I thought that the Florida
House and Green Turtle were under
one ownership. Because I could not
imagine one business owner would
do that to another without some
money changing hands. My busi-
ness was on North Second light
years away from downtown and not
really any of my concern or busi-
ness.
Things are different now the
Green Turtle's actions and disre-
spect of their neighbors' needs and
rights has thrown all of us into a
very bad situation. Any fool would
know that running bands outdoors
at full throttle, at the doorstep of a
Fernandina landmark hotel is going
to get some kind of response.
Newton's third law: for every action
there is an equal and opposite reac-
tion. The Green Turtle's thumbing
their nose at the local conventions
and lack of respect has brought a
whirlwind. How many jobs has their
behavior put at risk? How many
more jobs can this town stand to
lose? At the city meeting represen-
tatives of the Green Turtle made
comments about the owners of the
Florida House as if one's past gave
another person the right to walk all


over them.
Hotels pay bed tax. Bed tax is
what pays for advertising for
tourists. Tourists are the lifeblood of
our local economy. The Florida
House Inn has brought us the
Amelia Island songwriters' festival.
It fills hotels, restaurants and bars.
The Green Turtle brought us the
new sound ordinance. You tell me
which is better for jobs?

A real hero
We're hearing a lot today about
big splashy memorial services. I
want a nationwide memorial service
for Darrell "Shifty" Powers.
Shifty volunteered for the air-
borne in World War II and served
with Easy Company of the 506th
Parachute Infantry Regiment, part
of the 101st Airborne Infantry. If
you've seen Band of Brothers on
HBO or the History Channel, you
know Shifty. His character appears
in all 10 episodes, and Shifty himself
is interviewed in several of them.
I met Shifty in the Philadelphia
airport several years ago. I didn't
know who he was at the time. I just
saw an elderly gentleman having
trouble reading his ticket. I offered
to help, assured him that he was at
the right gate, and noticed the
"Screaming Eagle," the symbol of
the 101st Airborne, on his hat.
Making conversation, I asked
him if he'd been in the 101st
Airborne or if his son was serving.
He said quietly that he had been in
the 101st. I thanked him for his
service, then asked him when he
served and how many jumps he
made.
Quietly and humbly, he said,
"Well, I guess I signed up in 1941 or
so, and was in until sometime in
1945 .. " at which point my heart
skipped.
At that point, again, very humbly,
he said, "I made the five training
jumps at Toccoa, and then jumped
into Normandy .... Do you know
where Normandy is?" At this point
my heart stopped.
I told him yes, I know exactly


where Normandy was, and I know
what D-Day was. At that point he
said, "I also made a second jump
into Holland, into Arnhem." I was
standing with a genuine war hero .
. .and then I realized that it was
June, just after the anniversary of D-
Day.
I asked Shifty if he was on his
way back from France, and he said,
"Yes. And it's real sad because these
days so few of the guys are left, and
those that are, lots of them can't
make the trip." My heart was in my
throat and I didn't know what to
say.
I helped Shifty get onto the plane
and then realized he was back in
coach, while I was in first-class. I
sent the flight attendant back to get
him and said that I wanted to switch
seats. When Shifty came forward, I
got up out of the seat and told him
I wanted him to have it, that I'd take
his in coach.
He said, "No, son, you enjoy that
seat. Just knowing that there are
still some who remember what we
did and still care is enough to make
an old man very happy." His eyes
were filling up as he said it. And
mine are brimming up now as I
write this.
Shifty died on June 17 after fight-
ing cancer.
There was no parade.
No big event in Staples Center.
No wall-to-wall back-to-back 24/7
news coverage.
No weeping fans on television.
And that's not right.
Let's give Shifty his own memo-
rial service, online, in our own quiet
way. Please forward this e-mail to
everyone you know. Especially to
the veterans.
Rest in peace, Shifty.

Doofusville
The article "The Long Road to
Doofusville" (Cup of Joe, July 3)
was very educational!
I was on my way home from
Jacksonville via 1-95 and had to drive
through a horrendous frog-drown-
er, complete with raging thunder,
lightning and sheets of rain. I was
lucky not to encounter any dorks
driving stealth bombers (black
SUVs using parking lights) but I
counted at least 14 cars with their
emergency flashers on.
My guess is they were all head-
ing to Doofusville, which is getting
to be a pretty popular destination
these days.

Wrecks kill 2 Callahan women


JASON YURGARTIS

Two Callahan women were
killed last week in separate car
crashes.
Maxine Higginbotham
Jones, 76, died Friday when her
car was struck from behind by
another vehicle, forcing it into
the path of a semi truck.
Ida Strickland Allen, 71, died
Thursday in a single-car acci-

Jones was traveling south in
a 2005 Buick LeSabre on US
301 north of Kingbird Drive


shortly after 9 a.m. Friday when
she slowed to turn left into a
private driveway, according to
the Florida Highway Patrol.
Michael A. Mitchell, 21, of
Hilliard was traveling behind
in a 1992 Toyota MR-2 and
struck the Buick in the rear,
forcing it into the northbound
lane where it was struck on the
right side by the truck, the
report stated.
Jones, who was wearing a
seatbelt, was pronounced dead
at the scene. Mitchell suffered
minor injuries but was not
transported for medical atten-


tion. The driver of the semi,
Daniel R. Hinson Jr., 52, of
Tabor City, N.C., was taken to
Shands Jacksonville with minor
injuries. Damage to his truck
was estimated at $10,000.
According to the report,
charges are pending in the
investigation, but the accident
was not alcohol related.
Allen was traveling south on
US 1 north of Dyal Road just
after 8 a.m. Thursday in the
right lane when she veered off
the roadway onto the right
shoulder, overcorrected and
spun out of control, according
to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The left side of the car then col-
lided with a tree.
Allen was taken to Shands
Jacksonville by air ambulance,
where she was pronounced
dead at 9:53 a.m. According to
an FHP media release, she was
wearing a seatbelt and no alco-
hol was involved in the acci-

3 held for counterfeiting



$1 bills into $100 bills


A Fernandina Beach man
and two Georgia residents
were arrested Friday and
charged with counterfeiting
$100 bills, according to the
Naples Daily News.
Collier County sheriff's offi-
cials declined to fax the police
reports, but the newspaper
reported the three were
caught with more than $4,200
worth of counterfeiting money
and equipment.
Joseph Edward Rimes, 35,
of Fernandina Beach was
charged with washing $1 U.S.
currency bills with a house-
hold cleaner and then print-
ing $100 currency onto the
washed out $1 bills.
William David Rodeffer III,


32, of Folkston, Ga., was
charged with possession of
counterfeited bills and fraud
to obtain property under
$20,000.
Valerie Marietta Carver, 25,
of Alma, Ga., was charged
with possessing more than 10
counterfeited bank bills and
fraud with intent to obtain
property.
According to the report,
deputies found 42 counterfeit
$100 bills, two counterfeit $20
bills, as well as printers and
ink cartridges.
The newspaper, quoting
the police report, said the
three had reprinted the money
while inside Rodeffer's truck
traveling from Fernandina


Beach to Naples.
Authorities said the three
were heading to an overnight
fishing trip to the Dry
Tortugas.
Carver told police she
spent about $1,000 of the coun-
terfeit money to purchase food
and other items, according to
reports.
Rimes told deputies that he
got the counterfeiting idea
from watching the show
Dateline NBC describe a sim-
ilar scheme in Las Vegas, the
newspaper reported.
The newspaper said police
were called after a woman at
the fishing camp in Naples
noticed the fake bills inside
the truck and called police.


Last of 4 imprisoned


for identity thef


TALLAHASSEE -Attorney
General Bill McCollum has
announced that one of the lead-
ers of a North Florida identity
theft fraud ring was sentenced
to 10 years in prison.
Ronnie Bright pleaded
guilty to racketeering and con-
spiracy to commit racketeer-
ing charges in a case prose-
cuted by the Attorney
General's Office of Statewide
Prosecution.
Bright, 37, was part of an ID
theft ring that frequently broke
into vehicles and stole person-


al identification information
from the vehicles' owners,
including credit cards, check-
books and identification cards.
The ring then wrote fraudu-
lent checks at Wal-Mart,
Lowe's, Belks, Office Depot
and other various stores
throughout Florida.
Authorities believe the ring
was responsible for stealing
over $100,000 and victimizing
more than 50 victims.
Bright and his co-conspira-
tors were arrested in 2007
after a joint investigation by


trying

the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office and the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement. Bright is the last
of the co-defendants to be sen-
tenced for his participation in
this ring.
Previously sentenced were
Charles Mills, 33, of Jackson-
ville, sentenced to 30 years in
prison; Tameka Holcomb, 32,
of Jacksonville, sentenced to
six years in prison; and Dionne
Gamble, 32, of Jacksonville
who was sentenced to over five
years in prison.

Boy got rare disease while swimming


RYAN SMITH
News Leader
A Callahan Middle School
student died July 10 from a rare
disease he contracted while
swimming, according to the
Nassau County Health
Department.
Authorities initially sus-
pected Dalton Nettles, 13, died
of meningitis but test results
revealed he had primary amoe-
bic meningoencephalitis, or
PAM, a rare disease caused by
a microorganism found in
warm bodies of fresh water.
"(PAM) is
a form of
meningitis.
The 'menin'
part means it
affects your
brain, swells
your brain,"
said Wade
Dalton Sparkman,
public infor-
mation officer
for the health department. "It's
not mosquito-borne, it's
microorganism-borne."
Dalton had recently been
swimming in a lake in south-
ern Madison County, accord-
ing to the health department.
Naegleria fowleri, the amoeba
that causes PAM, is most com-
monly found in the upper layers
of sediment at the bottom of


lakes and ponds. Infection
occurs when the amoeba enters
the body through the nose and
travels to the brain and spinal
cord while the person is under-
water, according to the health
department.
However, the disease is rare,
Sparkman said, citing a 2001
study by the American Society
for Microbiology.
"What we had from 1965 -
which was the first described
case - to 2001 was 180 world-
wide," he said. "The only cases
that were reported with data
from Florida showed a risk of
seven cases per billion swim-
ming episodes. It's got to be
shallow water, it's got to be stag-
nant and it's got to be warm....
The conditions have to be just
right."
Although the infection is
rare, the threat increases dur-
ing summer months.
The health department said
people should seek medical
attention immediately if they
experience headache, fever,
nausea, vomiting or a stiff
neck after swimming in fresh
water. If the disease is not
diagnosed within 48 hours,
amoebas invade the brain.
Death usually occurs in a week
to 10 days. However, the dis-
ease cannot be spread person-
to-person or contracted in a
properly maintained swimming


pool, according to the health in lakes, rivers or hot springs.
department. * Avoid digging or stirring . 1 . , .


It recommends the follow-
ing precautions to avoid con-
tracting PAM:
* Avoid swimming in warm
lakes or ponds, poorly main-
tained swimming pools, storm
water holding areas or in post-
ed no-swimming areas.
* Hold your nose shut or
use nose-clips when swimming


up sediment while swimming
in shallow bodies of warm fresh
water.

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 indi-
cates 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.

Bar flghtarrests
A local bar fight involving a
weapon yielded a drug bust and
landed two men in jail on mul-
tiple felony charges.
William Trevor Crisp, 23, of
35063 Blackmon Road in
Callahan and James Edward
Langford, 22, of Jacksonville
were seen fighting with a
Palace Saloon manager outside
the Centre Street bar July 16
about 1:30 a.m., according to
an arrest report. The manager
told police the two men and
their friends were highly intox-
icated and he asked them twice
to leave the bar - the second
time after one returned and fell
down.
At that time Crisp began to
strike the manager in the face
and body while holding a black
metal expandable baton that
witnesses said he removed
from his back pocket, police
reported. The manager was
able to push Crisp out of the
bar, but Langford jumped in
and all three fell to the side-
walk outside.
A Fernandina Beach patrol-
man took Crisp and Langford
into custody and when he
asked Langford for ID, the man
reached into his pocket and an
unmarked prescription pill bot-
tle fell to the ground. It con-
tained hydrocodone, Xanax and


suspected crack cocaine, the
report stated.
The baton was recovered in
a bathroom inside the bar after
authorities discovered Crisp
had handed it to a friend to
hide, police reported.
Crisp is being held in the
Nassau County Jail on a $25,002
bond for aggravated battery, a
felony, and trespass, disorderly
intoxication and carrying a con-
cealed weapon - all misde-
meanors.
Langford is being held on a
$10,002 bond for possession of
hydrocodone, possession of
Xanax and possession of crack
cocaine, all felonies, and bat-
tery, disorderly intoxication and
trespassing - all misdemeanors.

Candy thefts
Two youth recreation facili-
ties were hit by burglary and
theft over the weekend.
Damage was caused by
forced entry and candy and
money were stolen from the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation
Center at 2500 Atlantic Ave.
July 17. A similar crime was
reported July 19 at a conces-
sion stand at Buccaneer Field
on Beech Street.
The recreation center theft
was reported about 6 a.m.
Friday when a lifeguard found
the hinges on a cabinet bent
back. When she looked inside,
she found $40 in cash had been
taken from boxes inside. An
inventory of missing items
found an additional $52 in
candy and snacks had been
stolen, according to a police
report.
Authorities determined the
burglars entered the building
by prying open an outside
door, but no fingerprints were
found.
Just two days later a bur-
glary was reported at
Buccaneer Field after a victim
discovered the concession
stand's shutters pried open and
four boxes of candy valued at
$57 stolen.
According to a police report,
the victim said the incident took
place sometime between July


15 and July 19. Police found
latent prints at the scene and
submitted them for identifica-
tion.
No suspects have been iden-
tified in either case.

me, I got an early
garden planted and even
bought a few more perennials
to stock up the butterfly gar-
den. Of course, when I spot-
ted milkweed plants on the
nursery shelf, with their
orange flowers in bloom, I
snatched up the last three.
A few weeks later, when
admiring my garden, as I do
most evenings, I happened to


notice the milkweeds. What's
this! One plant was stripped
of its leaves, revealing a lone-
ly striped caterpillar, the cul-
prit, lurking on the now bare
stem.
Instead of reacting to this
discovery with horror, "My
milkweed is dying!" I greeted
the news with joy, "I've
attracted a monarch butter-
fly!" And, I immediately went
to work saving this caterpillar
from the birds also lurking in
the yard, hoping for some

This gift was Foster-Turley
presented to
Bucko when he came home
from work that day. A gift
from nature. But quickly we
realized the jar was too humid
and moved the caterpillar and
its food leaves of milkweed
into a fisherman's cricket
cage. There it stayed, and one
day it had "done its thing" up
near the top of the cage, out
of site. It had pupated into a
chrysalis.
I was gone for a week dur-
ing the rains, but got daily
reports about our science
project, as we called it. When
I returned we decided to free

it from the cage - in case it
started to emerge into a but-
terfly - since it would be
harmed and trapped.
So Bucko cut the chrysalis
from the plastic cap, and we
attached it to our indoor living
evergreen Christmas tree, a
perfect ornament for summer-
time. It was no telling when
we could expect the monarch
butterfly to emerge from it,
but no doubt the cooler tem-
peratures of our indoor house
would slow its development.
Every day we looked at the
chrysalis, hard to tell if it was
dead or alive, but we hoped
for the best. No change was
evident, at least to us, at our
cursory inspections until the
day I walked into the study to
look at it, and found the cas-
ing opened up and the con-
tents gone. The butterfly had
emerged! I missed it! Where
was it!! Hope Masala, my cat,
didn't get it. All these
thoughts flashed through my
mind.
Then I spotted it, a beauti-
ful monarch, on the carpet
under the table, trying to
stretch its wings. I rushed out

One plant was stripped of its leaves, revealing
a lonely striped caterpillar the culprit.


to call Bucko to marvel at the
spectacle, and together we
reverently released it onto the
zinnias in my flower garden.
As I watched and pho-
tographed the monarch, it
stretched its wings and then
flew off to bask on the sun-
heated side of our neighbor's
house.
Later that day a monarch
butterfly, a young one with
fresh wing, was flitting around
the milkweeds - which had
grown back all the leaves by
then. It might have been the
same butterfly. But sadly, the
monarch disappeared, and the
three milkweed plants are suc-
culently full of nourishment
for caterpillars that never
arrive.
There are very few butter-
flies of any type in my yard
right now, even though all the
butterfly nectar and host
plants are in full bloom. There
are few bees, too, too few to


pollinate my cucumbers ade-
quately. And the dragonflies
are nearly absent from the
pond.
But yes, folks, just maybe
there are less mosquitoes now
thanks to the work of the
Amelia Island Mosquito
Control District, landscape
companies and other sources
of pesticide spraying. I just
wonder how much of this lack
of biodiversity is due to the
poisons that we are pumping
out that do not selectively kill
mosquitoes and lawn pests
but harm most insects too.
How much collateral dam-
age is acceptable, that is the
question. Meantime, ponder-
ing this thought, I will opti-
mistically await the butterflies'
return.

Argyle in the second round of the state tournament in Sanford. The Fernandina Pirates, the district champions, opened tournament play
Thursday with a 16-15 victory over Dinsmore after a 10-inning battle. Fernandina fell to Argyle 5-1 Friday but rebounded to beat
Suwannee on Saturday to advance to Sunday's semifinal round. The Pirates led Dinsmore 8-3 in the top of the seventh inning in a
rematch between the two teams, but Dinsmore managed eight runs in the inning and held on for an 11-9 victory to eliminate Fernandina.
The Pirates settled for fourth place this year and were third in the state last season.

McGill up



to double



challenge

BILL PENNINGTON
For the News Leader
Fernandina Beach's 2009 Chamber
of Commerce Board Chair Sean
McGill put a new twist on multi-task-
ing Saturday morning.
Faced with the predicament of
choosing between two of his favorite
sporting events on the island at near-
ly the same time, McGill instead
played a doubleheader. He completed
the Jacksonville Sprint Triathlon
Series at Peters Point,
jumped into an idling
car driven by wife
Tifini, rode three
miles to the Simmons
Road beach entrance
and began the Ed Gaw
Open Water Swim
Challenge.
McGill "I guess somebody
forgot to tell me that a
triathlon is swim, bike,
run, finish and not go back to swim
again," McGill said with a laugh.
With an impressive 57:22 triathlon
finish, third overall in the highly com-
petitive 35-39 age group, McGill was
still about 15 minutes late for the 5K
Open Water Challenge starting time
of 8:30 a.m. The triathlon had started
less than an hour earlier.
"I had to set up a lot of logistics to
make it work," McGill said. "I had
told both the triathlon race director
and Scott Mikelson of the Ed Gaw of
my intentions. Scott knew that I would
likely be starting behind everybody
else, but I still wanted to do it.
"Tif had the car running, Ijumped
in, erased my triathlon race number
and put the Ed Gaw number on my
arm, took a drink of Coke, changed
my bathing cap, got out of the car at
Simmons Road and jogged to the
beach.
"When I got there, everybody had
already started. I made certain that
Scott knew that I was going so they
knew somebody was out there swim-
ming by themselves."
But McGill wasn't completely
alone.
An unforeseen swim companion
joined him a few minutes into the 3.1-
mile trek to Main Beach.
"I had a dolphin that swam next
to me for a good 10 minutes," he said.
"I wasn't scared or anything because
I knew it wasn't a shark, but, man,
that dorsal fin looks pretty big from
close up."
An accomplished swimmer who
has completed Ironman triathlons
(2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-
mile run), 36-year-old McGill was able
to catch some of the slower swim-
mers. His official finishing time in the
Ed Gaw was 1:43:36.
"Unofficially, I timed myself in 1
hour, 28 minutes," he said. "I was
pleased because that was only two
minutes slower than my best time for
that distance."
And, Saturday's 5K swim was fol-
lowing a triathlon that consisted of a
quarter-mile ocean swim, 10-mile bike
and 5K run.
Unique challenges are nothing
new for the president of McGill
Aviation. Upon completion of his first
Ironman in 2006, he dropped to one
knee and proposed to Tifini a few
yards past the finish line.
He had kept the diamond engage-
ment ring with him during the final
marathon portion of that event.
This time he carried a competitive
spirit and a treasured moment came
from the sea.

NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield,
who reportedly tested positive for
methamphetamines twice this year,
is now contending that his urine
samples might have been spiked by
the racing organization. Mayfield
told reporters last weekend he
underwent an independent urine
test within an hour of the purported
positive test given by NASCAR doc-
tors and the second test came back
negative.
Stranger things have happened, I
guess, but you have to wonder what
would motivate NASCAR to do such
a thing. It will be interesting to see
whether or not the independent lab
used by Mayfield is deemed credi-

Shave has round of week


The middle week of July
saw a good turnout of 57 play-
ers on Wednesday and 62 on
Friday for the blitz last week
at the Fernandina Beach Golf
Club.
The round of the week
was turned in by Tommy
Shave on Friday as he shot a
four-under-par 69 (two under
his age), which was good for
plus 12 and individual honors.
On Wednesday it was
Terry Lacoss taking individ-
ual honors with a 74 and plus
8.
Allen Elefterion was sec-
ond with a 79 and plus 7.
There was a tie for third at
plus 6 between Harry Gibbs
(85) and Ronnie Boatright
(73).
Lacoss's plus 10 received
help from Bob Sibley (84,
plus 5) as the team that
included Wes Arnold (84,
minus 2) and Larry Luett (80,
minus 1) finished in first
place at plus 10,
Elefterion (plus 7) also
received help from his team-
mates Steve Johnson (77, plus
4), John Bray (86, plus 1)
while Don Snapp (87) fin-
ished at minus 3 as the team
came in second at plus 9.
All three of the individual
winners made it onto a win-
ning team as Boatright plus 6
was aided by Tony Lopez (80,
plus 3) to offset the minus 4
of Tommy Purvis (91) and the
even score of Kenny Pickett
(86) as they won third place
at plus 5.
There was a tie for fourth
place at even between the
team of Steve Shannon (82,
plus 5), Jim Dunphy (89, plus

barely edged out Steve

plus 11 points but did not
make it onto a winning team.
Alvarez, with a one-under-par

72 and plus 10 points, was a
close third.
It was Alvarez with his
plus 10 that got the most help
from his teammates as
Michael Kaufman (90) and
Doug Wolfe (86) both came in
at plus 4 while Wayne
Mortenson (99) was minus 5
as the team finished first at
plus 13.
Shave's plus 12 along with
Mike Joyce (one-under-par
72), Tim Poynter (83, even)
and Bob Riley (85, minus 2)
was good enough to win sec-
ond place at plus 11.

and fourth places at plus 7
involving the teams of John
LaFear (77, plus 5), Bill
Larrabee (92, minus 3), Larry

plus 1).

at plus 4. There was a three-
way tie for fourth place at

SThe Canadian Open is one of
the most history-enriched
tournaments on the PGA Tour.
It is the second oldest stop on
the PGA Tour and the third
oldest national championship


since its inception in 1904. The event is held in Ontario, Canada at
the Glen Abbey Golf Club. The inaugural winner of this event was
John H. Oke, who pocketed a grand winner's purse of $60.00. Leo
Diegel holds the record in this event with four wins in 1924, 1925,
1928 and 1929. Last year, PGA Tour rookie Chez Reavie played
like a seasoned veteran and won the Canadian Open by three shots
over Billy Mayfair.

Which of these golfers finished in the top ten money

forcing a four-hole playoff with Cink. Cink made two birdies in the
four-hole playoff and routed Watson, who suddenly looked his age,
by a whopping six strokes. A stroke behind at the third hole in the four-
hole playoff, Watson fell apart. After an errant tee shot, two whacks to get out of the
rough and three putts, he finished with a double-bogey 7, while Cink birdied the
hole. Cink then parred the final playoff hole for the victory.


i One of the most difficult shots to
master is a high, soft lob shot to a
real tight pin placement, such as
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.

ICAST tackle show makes its way to the East Coast


Tackle Association
held its annual
ICAST show on the
East Coast finally. The annual
fishing tackle show is histori-
cally held in Las Vegas, but
this year's big show was held
last week at Orlando's Orange
County Convention Center.
"This has been a great
show," said Dave Workman
Sr. of Jacksonville's Strike
Zone fishing tackle. "I believe
this show is three times as
big as previous shows held in
Las Vegas. We have also seen
better attendance and that's
good for the fishing tackle
business."
The annual showcase has
virtually every product relat-
ed with fishing tackle. If you
are a fishing tackle manufac-
turer, it's a must that you
have your products on display
at the ICAST show. Visitors
include fishing tackle dealers
from all over the world and
the press.
This was actually my first
visit to the show as the month
of July is just too busy for me
to travel to Las Vegas.
Orlando is within reason, so
long before sunrise, I was
driving there Thursday to see
the latest and greatest in the
world of salt and freshwater
fishing.
I arrived at the Orange
County Civic Center 45 min-
utes before the doors opened.
Once that magical moment
arrived, I showed my press
pass to the security man and
entered the show with quick-
ened pulse.
Pure Fishing dominated
the first aisle with its many
lines of fishing tackle.
Shakespeare "Ugly Stiks"
were well represented and
still lived up to the name,
indestructible. Penn Fishing
tackle also had a huge display
with Pure Fishing and, for the
saltwater angler, Penn is still
the '.. i .1- IIin, fishing rod
and reel manufacturer.
"Penn has incorporated a
new manufacturing process
that makes our fishing rods
super tough and ultra light,"
said Bryan Dufek of Penn
Fishing. "I know you will love
our new line of Torque game
fish rods. Torque fishing rods
are designed to handle a vari-
ety of saltwater game fish,
including the ever-popular
king mackerel. There is a lot
of flex in the tip section, but
lots of power in the butt sec-
tion of our Torque fishing
rods. Matched up with our
new line of Penn Torque fish-
ing reels, catching that fish of


a lifetime
becomes a
reality for
most fisher-
men."
I still
can't believe
how blind-
sided I was
when I was
OUTDOORS first intro-
- duced to
TerryLacoss John
Olivero's
"Power Pole" in 2001. Today
many avid fresh and saltwater
fishermen have a pair of
"Power Poles" mounted to the
transom of their salt or fresh-
water fishing boat.
Successful redfish pros
Bryan and Greg Watts were
on hand at the "Power Pole"
display, where fishermen like
myself were finally getting
schooled by the pros on how
the "Power Pole" is, without a
doubt, the perfect shallow
water anchor.
Frabill fishing tackle had
several new products on dis-
play, including a unique drop
net that can be stored in a
five-gallon bucket. The drop
net is perfect for pier and
bridge fishermen who need
to net fish from high above
the water. Frabill also show-
cased a new collapsible net
that actually stores right into
the handle of the landing net,
which makes for easier stor-
ing of your landing net on any
size fishing boat.
ARC DeHooker also had
new products at its booth to
showcase, including a long-
handled "DeHooker" for dis-
lodging hooks from large salt-
water game fish, including
billfish, sharks and tarpon.
I really fell in love with the
full line of shallow water
skiffs manufactured by
Dragonfly Boatworks of Vero
Beach. You have to take a
look at www.dragonflyboat-
worksllc.com.
To visit the ICAST fishing
tackle show, you had to be a
fishing tackle dealer or writer.
If you really would like to see
next year's show, you might
be able to tag along with a
friend that is a dealer or with
the press.
The good news is the pres-
ent slump in our economy has
inspired fishing tackle manu-
facturers to produce better
products with a lower price
tag. For information on the
ICAST show, visit www.icast-
buyersguide.com.
Good luck in this week's
AT&T BellSouth Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament.


PHUOIS BY EKRRY LAVUS/SVEUIAL
Visitors to the 2009 ICAST show were able to talk directly with the experts. Legendary Keys fishing guide Robert
Trosset was at the show, representing FIN-Nor fishing tackle.

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 fish-
ing license.
It provides all of the same exemptions as a
regular license, including senior citizens, chil-
dren, disabled people who meet certain qualifi-
cations, active-duty military personnel while
home on leave and anglers who fish from a
licensed pier. In addition, the shoreline license
requirement includes two new exemptions:
anglers drawing food stamps, temporary cash
assistance or Medicaid; and anglers fishing in
their home counties who use cane poles or
other gear that does not depend on mechani-
cal 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. The state
will use up to 10 percent of the fees to promote
those sports. Visit MyFWC.com.

District's regular business hours.
The District's regular business
hours are 8:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.,

and being capable of being
stored and printed by the
District. Further, pursuant to the
District s Statement of Agency
Organization and Operation,
attempting to file a petition
by facsimile (fax) is prohibited
and shall not constitute filing.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed
to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition
means the District's final action
may be different from the posi-
tion taken by it in this notice.
Failure to file a petition for an
administrative hearing within
the requisite time frame shall
constitute a waiver of the right
to an administrative hearing.

Circle of Friends program a lifeline for independent seniors


"I've fallen and I can't get
up." We have all seen the
advertising campaign and
maybe even joked about it. It
isn't funny. Most of us have
dealt with the reality of some-
one falling and not having the
help they needed.
Self-reliance is something
we all strive for. Small chil-
dren want to "do it i iiy. I!' FROM
and many senior citizens THE
want to remain on their own. PORCH
Small children need adult
supervision and dedicated
people insuring their safety. Dickie
Our senior citizens have Anderson
earned respect and the oppor-
tunity to remain self-reliant as long as they are
no danger to themselves or anyone else.
Just ask Norma Butler, a fierce 80-year-old
who lives independently. A retired registered
nurse, Butler is nearly blind from macular
degeneration. She has found solutions to the
challenges she faces, thanks to her devoted
dog, Kia, and support through the Nassau
County Council on Aging. Once a month she
also attends the Low Vision Support Group it
offers to people struggling with compromised
sight.
Through the COA support group she met


Frances Bartelt, volunteer coordinator for the
organization. A fall in the middle of the night
scared Butler. Through COA, she learned
about a program that would allow her to
remain independent and get immediate help if
she needed it.
Circle of Friends, founded in 2005 by
Denise Saxton, is a focused volunteer group
that offers "companionship" to home bound or
assisted living seniors. The vision was simple
from the start, but has expanded as the groups
of volunteers focus on specific needs of the eld-
erly. One group through Barnabas, Builders
Care of Nassau County, helps seniors with
home repairs and building wheel chair ramps.
Butler was afraid she might fall again and
not have anybody around to call for help.
Through the COA and a state funded program
called Early Alert Response System (EARS)
seniors are equipped with monitors that let
them call for help. There is a waiting list for the
program that provides a pendant that hangs
around the neck and can be activated if some-
one is in trouble. The call goes to a center and
a response team determines the best action to
take to help the person in distress.
Butler, her friends and family are proud of
her independence and thankful for her new
monitor and the volunteers that keep track of
her.
Two Circle of Friends volunteers stepped

Alert 911 pendant battery.

up to address the dramatic need for an expand-
ed program. Jane Holzkamp and Joan Foster
have developed two additional opportunities
for seniors needing monitors. Holzkamp is the
rainmaker - going out to organizations like


Rotary and the Newcomer's Club to raise need-
ed funds. Foster is the technical contact to
teach and monitor the devices once they are in
use. There are two options for emergency con-
tact. The first is that the call goes to 911 and
the second that a family member is contacted
(if the first call does not answer it rolls to the
second, etc.).
Bartelt is responsible for many of the COA's
critical programs for the seniors in our commu-
nity, but clearly this is one she considers one of
the highest priorities.
"So far, we have installed 10 systems. COA
has a long waiting list for clients and other sen-
iors interested in the COA funded emergency
phone system - EARS -Early Alert Response
System. Some clients have been on the waiting
list for over a year. Others have come in asking
for help as they can no longer afford to private
pay for an emergency phone system."
Great programs like this one should and
will grow stronger because of passionate volun-
teers like Holzkamp and Foster. For more
information about the EARS program or other
volunteer opportunities please contact Frances
Bartelt, Council on Aging volunteer coordina-
tor, at 261-1701, ext. 102, or 557-1942.

4-H cooksup fun
Local youth honed their culinary
skills at Oodles of Noodles 4-H day
camp, held June 22-26 at the family
education center in Yulee. Recipes
centered on a variety of pastas as
participants learned about the histo-
ry of pasta, gluten allergies and
basic culinary skills. Meals includ-
ed homemade wheat spaghetti with
meatballs, thai chicken with noo-
dles, nacho stuffed shells and more.
The recipes required some common
and other not so common ingredi-
ents, calling for the youth to some-
times get out of their comfort zone
and try something new. Master food educator Vicki Grethe helped make the week both fun and educa-
tional. For information about 4-H opportunities, contact the Nassau County Extension Service at
(904) 879-1019. Above left, Hailey Sage and Ethan Knagge work diligently to dice ingredients for the
daily recipe. Above right, Grethe and camper Arin Crossway put last-minute touches on Chinese pot-
stickers prior to cooking. Above, campers play "Every tree for itself," a game where they mimic trees
and have to pick up coins representing the necessities for survival, during a 4-H day camp in
Callahan. Topics included forestry, mammals, our soil and learning to kayak.

Kara is an 11-month-old

brought to our shelter for

Honey is a smooth fox ter-

us, she was so afraid that she
hid in the back of her kennel
and didn't want anyone to
touch her. Now with attention
and the influence of her room-
mate, Gollam, she is much
more outgoing and playful.
