tional classrooms and remod-

The expenditures at Emma
Love and Southside are to
accommodate students moving
there from Atlantic Elementary
School, which has been closed.
There also are plans to
demolish buildings at Atlantic
Elementary and Hilliard Middle
Senior High School.
The construction schedule
also calls for remodeling the
auditorium, gym improvements
and roof replacement at
Fernandina Beach High School,
renovation of a building at
Hilliard Middle Senior High and
a host of smaller projects and
routine maintenance.
The school district would
also purchase seven school
buses.
It has proposed to delete
from its plans construction of a
new elementary school in Yulee
as student population growth
has subsided there. "It's not
growing right now," Farmer
said, based on a five-year survey
completed by the state.

CITY Continued from 1A
railroad safety is as important an
issue as ownership.
"All (CSX Railroad) cares
about is doing their operations
safely and efficiently. ... They
can't do it because of parking
on city property on Front
Street." Kavanaugh also noted
that the city could be liable if
an accident happened on the
railroad tracks.
"The railroad says it's a con-
tinuous problem and (the
Florida Department of
Transportation) says (the area)
should be cleaned up,"
Kavanaugh said.
Toundas, however, says that
even with customers parking on
Front Street, there is barely
enough parking for everyone,
especially during lunchtime.
Some of her customers have
been forced to park in a private
lot,across.,ther~_i oad trackIs
north, tp jriC g,Iot A.,
She also noted two restau-
rant signs were recently stolen
from the property.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor said city staff met with
Toundas to work on "an agree-
able Front Street solution."
"The railroad says they have
certain rights and ownership to
the property," said Czymbor,
who also noted that the city
would be working with all five
property owners on that side of
Front Street to meet their needs.
Kavanaugh said he and the
city would be working with CSX
and property owners for the
proper easements and quitclaim
deeds necessary to begin work-
ing on the infrastructure needs
of the Front Street waterfront
project.
Kavanaugh said easements
also would be necessary for
access to the parking lot behind
Toundas's building and for the
property owned by his brother
Bill Kavanaugh directly behind
Toundas's.

Sanitation

worker

hit by car

JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

A sanitation employee was
injured when a car struck him
as he exited a garbage truck
July 21.
Daniel Lloyd Hale, 23, of
Callahan was walking east
across Owens Road after jump-
ing off the truck just south of
Turtle Lane about 2:43 p.m.
when a northbound vehicle driv-
en by Laura Bass Sumner, 42, of
Fernandina Beach struck him


in the northbound lane, police
reported.
According to the report,
Sumner was traveling 25 miles
per hour. The posted speed in
the area is 30.
Hale was found to be at fault
in the accident and was trans-
ported to Shands Jacksonville,
while Sumner was taken to
Baptist Medical Center Nassau.
Both suffered "non-incapacitat-
ing" injuries, the report stated.
Sumner's 1992 Ford was
towed from the scene with an
estimated $1,500 damage, the
report stated.

Continued from 1A
Commissioner Walter
Boatright.
"Yes, that's correct,"
Mullin said.
"We're allowing the sword
to cut both ways, is all," said
Commission Chair Barry
Holloway.
However, the ordinance
didn't address any business-
es outside the A1A overlay
district. That puts businesses
in other parts of the county at
a disadvantage, said David
Martineau, owner of the
Redneck Yacht Club at
850019 US 17, Yulee.
Martineau said his business,
which is near the Duval
County line, suffers under
Nassau County's 2 p.m. time
restriction. Potential cus-
tomers, he said, simply go
into Duval County on
Sunday rather than wait until
2 p.m. to buy a beer in Yulee.
"I'm not the only business
on 17," Martineau said. "...
I'd think the county would
embrace people like me
who've spent their life sav-
ings to start a business that
wasn't there before."
Boatright pointed out that
Duval County restaurants can
sell drinks starting at 7 a.m.
on Sunday. "Are you going
to come back and say you
want to change it to 7 a.m.?"
"No, I just want to be on a
level playing field with The
Ritz-Carlton," Martineau said.

'They can serve at noon."
'Today I think we're look-
ing at this issue along A1A
to 95," said Commissioner
Mike Boyle.
"I think it's unfair to
restrict it to this corridor of
commerce along AIA,"
Martineau said.
"And that's a reasonable
argument, but we're here
tonight to address another
issue," Boyle said.
"But how can businesses
operate when there's restric-
tions that don't apply to
everyone?" Martineau asked.
"No one's against what
you're saying," Holloway
said. "... My recommendation
would be to get with (County
Coordinator Ed) Sealover's
office and the county attor-
ney, and see if we need to
amend this ordinance."
County Attorney David
Hallman agreed to meet with
Martineau to discuss extend-
ing the relaxed Sunday
restrictions beyond the A1A
overlay district. He said there
were also other tweaks to the
ordinance worth considering.
'This change in the over-
lay area will oil�y change dis-
tances wtth'regard to restau-
rants in the ovei-lay area," he
said. "... You're not changing
the distance between a
church and, for example, a
liquor store. Well, people are
not drinking coning out of
that liquor store, so why's
that necessary?"

support that I have received these 14 years in business.
Many of my customers have become close friends," says
Dina Dobrosky Martin, owner of Monkey Barrel.


'Barrel' of fun school


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-leader

With school days just
around the corner, Iina Iobro-
sky Martin of the Monkey
Barrel is bracing for the
onslaught of parents looking for
special togs for their children.
Martin was born and raised
in Fernandina Beach. Working
retail during high school and
college whetted her appetite to
run her own business someday.
"I took several small busi-
iess development and finance
classes during and after I grad-
uated college. I took these class-
es so that I would know how to
properly manage the business
side of a company," said Martin.
The choice to open a chil-
dren's boutique stemmed from
both an enjoyment of working in
retail and being around chil-
dren.
After obtaining the keys
from her landlord at midnight
on March 1, 1996, Martin
worked through the night with
family and friends and was open
for business at 10 a.m. that
morning at The Spa & Shops
at Amelia Island Plantation.
When asked how she cane
up with the name for her shop,


Martin said she wanted to cre-
ate a whimsical atmosphere and
to use an animal that all chil-
dren would love.
"I decided to go with a mon-
key theme. A good friend of
mine helped me come up with
the name and it's been a big
hit."
Martin travels to New York,
Dallas, Atlanta and Orlando to
find the items she stocks.
Among the labels to be
found at Monkey Barrel are
Bailey Boys, Le Top, Rabbit
Moon, Kissy Kissy, E-Land, and
Puddle Jumper shoes, to name
a few. Clothing, is stocked in
sizes to fit newborns to size 10
for boys and size 14 for girls.
Toy brands include a full line
of Thomas the Tank Engine, a
variety of puzzles, games, dolls,
cars, pool and beach toys as
well as stuffed animals and arts
and crafts kits.
With a Facebook page and e-
mail access, Monkey Barrel
ships all over: Martin says she
believes the furthest she has
shipped is Greece.

Shopwith Cops
At Crocodile Dock Vacation Bible School
this summer, the children brought in their
offerings every day for the Shop with Cops
program that First Presbyterian Church has
supported for many years. The children were
very excited about giving money to the
Fernandina police officers to take children
shopping at Christmas. A check for $601 was
presented to Don Monahan of our congrega-
tion, who is the founder and biggest supporter
of the Shop with Cops Program in Fernandina.

'Not in Fernandina Beach'?


Remember the so-called "nuclear
option" of a few years ago? Republicans
in the U.S. Senate were poised to elimi-
nate or significantly alter the cham-
ber's filibuster rules - the use of unlimited
debate to delay or kill a piece of legislation or
the approval of presidential appointees. Senate
Democrats, then a minority, had successfully
used the filibuster to block or delay the nomi-
nees of President Bush to fill vacancies in the
federal judiciary. The "nuclear option" - the
unthinkable option - would have severely limit-
ed long-held, long-cherished minority party
rights in the Senate's debate process. Clear
thinking Republicans and Democrats rightly
rejected it as extremist.
Well, our own local "nuclear option" is alive
and well in fantasyland - City Hall. At the city
commission's annual retreat, the city manager,
searching for ways to fill the budget gap, sug-
gested the possibility of a public access tax.
This tax, he said, could generate as much as
$1.5 million from law-abiding citizens, and
another $700,000 in fines. The commission's
response? Silence, save for Commissioner Tim
Poynter, who thought it was a fine idea. Silence.
How things have changed.'
Now, I don't fault the city manager for bring-
ing this idea forward. He's doing his job. And I
respect Commissioner Poynter's support,
though I vehemently disagree with it. The
remainder of the commission, though, should
have done what every commissioner had done
since the early 1980's - they should have, figu-
ratively, hung out a sign that said, "Not in
Fernandina Beach." By not doing so, through
their silence, they implied support for the
unthinkable. They implied their willingness to
entertain the "nuclear option;" they didn't rule
out taxing public access, something many peo-
ple in this community have fought to protect


for many years.
This idea, this public
access tax, isn't new. When
the city began opening street
ends on the east side of South
Fletcher in the early 1980's, a
few people - no commission-
ers - wanted to impose a fee
Sor tax to help pay for the
annual maintenance. The
DEBATE commission hung out that
AND sign, "Not in Fernandina
TACK E Beach."
Again, in the early 1990s,
some on the city's Financial
Ron Sapp Advisory Committee suggest-
ed re-visiting the idea of a
public access tax. Like before, the tax was seen
as a revenue source to be earmarked for annual
maintenance and expansion of public beach
access. Again, the commission hung out that
sign.
So, here we go again, only this time no one
on the commission can find the sign. They
should look long and hard for it, here are three
reasons why:
(1) The "Let's just make up these numbers"
phenomenon. There is no evidence that pro-
jected public access tax revenues haven't fallen
victim to this well-established bureaucratic
strategy - public or private bureaucracies. $1.5
million in revenue? What formula was used?
Where's the empirical evidence? $700,000 in
fines? How'd you get that number? The com-
mission has to ask staff to justify the projec-
tions.
(2) This is going to be a logistical nightmare
to implement and enforce. How does one
obtain a beach parking pass at a kiosk located
at Main Beach? Well, suppose I want to spend
some time at Seaside Park or North Beach


Park. Do I first have to go to Main Beach and
get a pass? Suppose my pass is for one hour but
I want to stay longer. Will I have to fear my car
being towed by the "public access police?" And
what about enforcement? Will it fall to city
police, a separate enforcement group or what?
An absolute nightmare. And what about city
residents? Will they be subjected to the tax?
After all, they already pay property taxes,
which support and maintain over 40 public
beach accesses. Wouldn't that be double taxa-
tion?
(3) The philosophical or ideological prob-
lem. For many of us, public beach access is a
natural right and we've worked hard to pre-
serve that right since the resort era began in
the early 1970s. If you believe that no one owns
the ocean and no one owns the beach and that
people, all people, have the natural right toget
to and use those natural assets, then taxing that
use would be an abomination.
Perhaps the city manager and the commis-
sion brought this old, many times rejected idea
forward as a "trial balloon," meant to test the
political winds. What a waste of theirs and the
people's time. All one needs is a cursory knowl-
edge of our city's history to know that there is
no need to focus group this idea, or to subject it
to an imprecise, unscientific Internet straw poll.
It is, quite simply, a bad idea.
Specious number, logistical problems -
good reasons, both, to reject the idea of a pub-
lic access tax. What I am waiting to hear, what I
want to hear, is the city commission rejecting
the idea on philosophical grounds. I want to
hear them say that the people have a natural
right to enjoy the ocean and the beach, and that
to tax that natural right would be wrong.
I want them to find the sign and hang it out
again: "Not in Fernandina Beach."

No butterflies
We were so interested in Pat
Foster-Turley's article about the but-
terflies (July 22). We had noticed
all summer that for the first time in
about 10 years of our coming to
Amelia, we have not seen one of
these beautiful creatures. We live
on the south end of the island, never
ever kill anything that could possibly
be a larva, have lots of plants and
flowers and yet we are void of but-
terflies. What has happened?

Bearsighting
I have no problem with your post-
ing this response should you choose
to do so as I read your article on
the bear sighting:
As I read this article on the sight-
ing of a black bear, I am reminded
that we live in a region of not only
Florida, but the country, where
sometimes nearly extinct wildlife
intermingle with human beings. We
need to remember that we cut down
the trees and expanded our "views"
of the ocean, sunset, etc., for our
selfish good, at the expense of the
natural habitat many wildlife once
enjoyed with no interest in harm-
ing human beings.
Not one human being should
consider the thought of harming
this bear, not a mom, not a dad or
otherwise. We need to take a deep
breath, think for a minute, then
retreat and allow a far more wise
and instinctive "being" to find
his/her way home.
Humans are the only species that
have ego, selfishness and feel the
"entitlement" to shoot and kill for
better property values, a better view
or otherwise. All self-involved, self-
centered and arrogant agendas.
Amelia Island residents need to
cherish this sighting as a gift to see
something pure and wild; not false
or pretentious in nature. We need to
stop forcing the relocation, injury
and deaths of wildlife so we can


~L,45


"develop" communities for our
human-like, ego-centered agendas -
more/better views, more property,
etc.
Amelia Island residents have a
wealth of land, enough property for
all, and a beautifully, rare gift of
wildlife they need not massacre any
more. It is time for this county of
Nassau to evolve, appreciate and
respect the wildlife that has far more
instinctive intelligent than most who
populate our census. They bow to
our ignorance and arrogance on a
daily basis. Enough.
We are the only species who
takes far more than it gives back to
the larger world. It would serve each
and every one of us exponential
good to spend a day simply watch-
ing, adoring and hoping the best for
the survival of a bear or otherwise
who knows universal rules that rec-
ognize that every human and ani-
mal, alike, deserves food, safety,
respect, caring and a chance to real-
ize their own destiny. We are the
enemy, not the bear.

American heroes
If it was not for the News-Leader
(July 22), I would not have known of
the deaths of two real American
heroes, Capt Everett Pope and
Darrell "Shifty" Powers. Both served
their country with honor during the
darkest days of war.
There was no mention of their
deaths on national network news.
There was no memorial service in
our nation's capital. I guess that in
the words of Gen. Douglas
MacArthur, "Old soldiers never die,
they just fade away."
I would have expected some hon-
orable mention from our nation's
capital. If the death of one enter-
tainer who apparently made major
contributions to music and mankind
can get accolades from the White
'House, then surely two old soldiers
, who gave their blood, sweat and
tears to defend our country can get
a footnote from some politician in
Washington.
Stan Miller
Fernandina Beach
Editor's note: The letter on Darrell
"Shifty" Powers was a copy of a letter
circulating on the Internet. According
to about.com, Powers was a World


War II hero and member ofthe "Band
of Brothers" made famous by the
Stephen Ambrose book and HBO
miniseries of the same title. He died
on June 17. However, the local resi-
dent who submitted that letter did not
experience what was published. The
News-Leader strives to avoid publi-
cation of letters circulating on the
Internet. We regret the error
Patient courtesy?
If you have a doctor that knows
your history and you are in need of
medicine to keep you healthy, they
will write you a prescription. If they
know you are on a fixed income and
it's hard times, they may even give
you samples. Not so with my vet.
My puppy went for all his shots
and was neutered as well. He is on
a regime of heartworm and flea
medicines. Since I am on a fixed
income, I went online and found
places to receive my medicine
cheaper than I could buy from the
vet. I went and asked for a pre-
scription. First the receptionist
repeated over and over how medi-
cines found online may not be safe.
They may be tainted by being left in
hot trailers or be beyond the expi-
ration date. I am not that stupid to
buy from some disreputable com-
pany. Finally, I was able to convince
her that I would still like the pre-
scription.
Then the office manager told me
that they would have to charge me
$15 for it. After further discussion,
I was able to convince him to match
the price I found online. He said he
would, but when I went back with
the information I was informed by
the receptionist that I would still be
charged the $15. She was very hard
and straightforward. No compas-
sion at all and continued to voice
that all vets charge for a prescription.
After confirming with the manager
they matched the price online. I only
saved a couple of dollars but those
dollars were in my pocket. And then
I found out that I was paying a lot
more for only buying one pill at a
time. I was never informed by them
that it was costing me more. I guess
they were enjoying the profit.
I need to take my animal where
they can understand hard times, are
out there for everyone and will work
with their patients. The vet should
check into what goes on in the
office. I can't believe they would

Health care reform
The AARP is committed to the
health care reform, and that sounds
good to those of us over 50. They
solicited my financial'help to keep
their ad on the airwaves support-
ing President Obama's health care
program. Their e-mail request iden-
tified Americans ages 50 to. 64 as
needing access to affordable care.
S Since I am aware that this same
reform will ration health care for
those of us older than this group
even if we are insured, I replied to
their e-mail by asking the' AARP if
they still represented my age group.
They did not respond to my ques-
tion. I guess it would be too hard for
them to try to explain how under
the national health plan they sup-
port a group of constituents would
be left out in the cold.
Age will be used to determine
your eligibility for medical care (it
has already started in specific cases
such as screening for prostate can-
cer). Read some of the reports of
the U.S.. Preventive Services Task
Force. Phrases such as "competing
causes of death" and "a mortality
benefit" are used to justify*such dis-
crimination. Even President Obama
signaled that this is the road his
administration wants to travel. At a
town hall meeting on health care
reform, he commented on a 100-
year old woman who had received a
pacemaker. He indicated she should
have just been given a pain pill.
So if you are in your 70s and con-
sidering elective surgery, better do
it soon.

Sen. Jim King dies:


23 year

State Sen. James E. "Jim"'
King, Jr., of Jacksonville died
Sunday of cancer.
King served in the Florida
Senate from 1999 until his
death, serving as president of
the Senate from 2002 to 2004
and majority leader of both the
House of Representatives and
the Senate. King served in the
Florida House for 12 years prior
to his election to the Senate.
With 23 years of public service,
he was one of the longest serv-
ing members of the Florida
Legislature.
'There is a great sense of
loss in the district with Sen.
King's passing," State Rep. Janet
Adkins said in a statement.
"Sen. King was a true leader in
every sense and a great advo-
cate to the people in North
Florida. He was a great friend to
the constituents that he served
and the leaders that he worked
with. He will be deeply missed
by the community and the
Nassau delegation.
"Sen. King's decades of ded-
ication to Floridians and stead-
fast determination to do what
was right are invaluable and rep-
resent only a few of his many
admired attributes," she said.
"His ability to unite Republicans
and Democrats alike as many
critical and highly publicized
issues were considered is truly
remarkable.
"Sen. King was a man that
spoke his mind and stood his
ground. In return, he was able
to gain unwavering support
from Floridians and political fig-
ures regardless of party affilia-
tion. Our prayers, love and sup-

One of the delights of a trip
to Northern California is a near-
guaranteed chance to watch
large mammals close up. It's
been four years since my last
trip to my old Bay Area haunts,
so a couple of weeks ago I had
a lot of large mammal watching
to catch up on.
We do have some large

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Jason
Yurgartis of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, the city of Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion ofa 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 2250147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,
Hilliard and Bryceville. The "We
Tip"program - 1-800-78CRIME
- also allows callers to leave
anonymous tips.
Theftalleged
A Nassau County Sheriff's
deputy responded to an alleged
aggravated assault, burglary
and theft on the 43000 block of
Kids Coach Lane in Callahan
on July 24.
A 60-year-old man told offi-
cers his stepson, Casey Tatum,
came to his home uninvited and
held a pistol to his head. Tatum
had his shirt pulled up to cover
his face from the nose down
and said, "This is a stickup," the
report said. The man said
Tatum then fired the pistol into
the ground outside the home
and revealed his face.
According to the report,
Tatum then headed for a garage
where the man soon followed
and the two.worked on a car.
Tatum then said he was thirsty
and entered the home for a
drink. The man followed Tatum
and noticed his wallet and a rolf
of dimes missing and confront-
ed Tatum, who denied taking
the property. Tatum then head-
ed for his truck, parked outside
the home, but the man didn't
follow because he was afraid
Tatum was going for the gun,
the report stated. Tatum left the
area in an unknown direction.
According to the report, the
deputy planned to contact the
State Attorney's Office in an
attempt to obtain a warrant for
Tatum.
Prescription fraud
A Callahan woman was
arrested July 22 for concealing
information to fraudulently
obtain a prescription and mak-
ing false statements to obtain
Medicaid services of less than
$20,000.
According to an incident
report, a doctor tipped off the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
that a patient, Michele Nicholle
Dettman, 37, of 45157 Brown


St., Apt. 103, was receiving con-
trolled substances from other
doctors. Dettman was seen in
the reporting doctor's office on
June 12, June 18 and July 6 and
was prescribed several con-
trolled substances, the report
stated. But the doctor recently
received information from the
state Medicaid office that
Dettman had additional pre-
scriptions and was seeing a total
'of three doctors.
According to the report, she
was using Medicaid to pay for
various office visits as well as
controlled substances over a 30-
day period.
Dettman said the controlled
substances were sent to
Alabama to family members,
the report stated. She was
arrested and her child was
placed in the custody of the
Department of Children and
Families.

Allstars play in state tourney, host region


The Fernandina Beach Babe Ruth 14-and-under
Allstars competed in the 2009 North Florida State
Tournament in Altamonte Springs July 17-18.
Fernandina was defeated in the opener by the even-
tual tournament champion, Tallahassee Leon.
Fernandina faced District 5 champion Ponte
Vedra in the second game, which was halted twice
due to lengthy rain delays.
Following the first delay, Ponte Vedra jumped out
to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning.
Fernandina responded with a run in the top half of
the third when Josh Didion doubled, driving inJake
Withers, who had reached on a walk.
The score would remain 3-1 until Ponte Vedra
added two runs in the bottom of the fifth to extend
its lead to 5-1. Fernandina answered in the top of the
sixth, taking advantage of a walk and two Ponte


Vedra errors to score four runs on three hits.
With the game tied at 5-5, Fernandina mounted
a two-out threat in the top of the seventh with run-
ners at first and third after Mason Mottayaw and
Cole Kirkland reached on singles. Fernandina's
momentum was halted by the second rain delay,
which lasted an hour and a half.
Following the second delay, Ponte Vedra was
able to' record the final out of the inning without
allowing any runs. In the bottom half of the seventh
inning, Ponte Vedra loaded the bases on two walks
and a hit batter. With no outs, Nathan Rokosz deliv-
ered a single that plated the winning run to defeat
Fernandina 6-5.
Withers had a strong pitching performance for
Fernandina. He went six-plus innings and struck out
six batters while walking just two.


Offensively, Fernandina was led by Withers (two
singles) and Didion (pair of doubles) with two hits
apiece. Mack Casey, Josh Pipkin, Bailey Weeks,
Trey Burch, Austin Jones, Mottayaw and Kirkland
contributed with one hit each.
Fernandina played a solid game defensively with
just two errors in the field.
The 14-and-under Allstars host the Southeast
Regional Tournament beginning today with a fun day
and opening ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Games begin at
10 a.m. Thursday.
Fernandina opens play at 5:30 p.m. Thursday as
the home team takes on East North Carolina.
Admission to games for ages 13 and up is $20 for
a week pass or $5 a day.

Have eight title-less years


taken the edqe offSpurrier?


'T he debate continues as to whether
or not South Carolina head coach
Steve Spurrier intentionally left
Florida QB Tim Tebow off his pre-
season All-SEC first team ballot. The 01' Ball
Coach.sounded genuine and sincere at last
week's SEC Media Days when he admitted
that Jamie Speronis, South Carolina's director
of football operations, filled out his ballot and
omittedTebow.
But there are still those who believe the
O1' Ball Coach fully intended to stick it to his
old team before realizing the media storm his
actions incited and backtracking. Given his
serious demeanor, I tend to believe Spurrier.
In the past, a typical media session with the
coach would have entailed a couple of wise-
cracks and double the smirks.
But I can't remember ever seeing the guy
so solemn as he was last Friday. The scene
almost made you wish he had admitted leav-
ing Tebow off on purpose, just to bring back
the old Spurrier, brash and arrogant. But
those days seem to be gone. I guess eight
years without sniffing a title after experienc-
ing so much early success can humble even
the most brazen...
Speaking of screw-ups, Tennessee fans
flooded my inbox after I incorrectly predicted.
in last week's column that it was Vols head
coach Lane Kiffin who left Tebow off the first
team.
One fan wrote, "Sir, I was just wondering if
you have apologized to Coach Kiffin ... in
light of this week's revelation that Spurrier
was the one who voted for Snead rather than
Tebow?"
Taking that advice, here goes:
I'm sorry. I'm extremely sorry. I was hop-
ing for a year in which I made no incorrect
predictions. That was my goal, something
that's never been done around here. But I
promise you a lot of good will come out of
this. You will never see another columnist in
the entire country ... scratch that. I think I'll

just go with the following
statement prepared by my
publicist:
I've been made aware by
Tennessee fans that my
comments in last week's col-
umn violated Lane Kiffin's
feelings. In my enthusiasm
for writing, I made a state-
ment that was meant solely
to excite those reading the
column.
I apologize to Lane, his
daddy, Smokey and I guess
Ed Orgeron. My comments
were not intended to offend
anyone at the University of
Tennessee...
Extracting tongue from


cheek...
Maybe the most disturbing revelation that
came out of "Tebowgate" might be Spurrier's
admission that he never completes his own
preseason all-conference ballot.
"Well, I guess I've been doing the presea-
son ballots for 17 years," Spurrier told
reporters. "I've never filled one out. But I usu-
ally look at it. I did glance at the one this year,
but I didn't glance very thoroughly."
W which begs the question, who fills out
Spurrier's USA Today Coaches Poll ballot?
And when they're finished each week, how
thoroughly does Spurrier check it over?
Seriously, could the BCS, which decides who
plays for a national championship each year,
be made up of computers, Harris Poll voters
and the opinions of various directors of foot-
ball operations?
The three words that immediately come to
mind are, "lack of integrity." Yet another rea-
son to do away with the BCS, as if we needed
one.

Hagins races for national crown


David Hagins made his
dream come true. The 20-year-
old dirt bike racer has quali-
fied for the largest amateur
motocross race in the world,
the 28th annual Air Nau-
tiques/AMA Amateur National
Motocross Championships at
Loretta Lynn's ranch. Hagins
took on more than 20,000 hope-
fuls from across America to
earn one oljust 1,386 qualiifing
positions.
'The Amateur Nationals at
Loretta Lynn's is the event
every motocross racer in the
country wants to compete in,'
event director Tim Cotter said.
"A win at the Amateur Nation-
als can serve as a springboard
to a lucrative professional
motocross career."
Most of America's top pro-
fessional motocrossers, includ-
ing James Stewart, Ricky
Carmichael, Travis Pastrana


and Jeremy McGrath, have
won AMA Amateur National
Championships at Loretta
Lynn's. The race is so presti-
gious that last year teenaged
stars such as New York's Justin
Barcia, South Carolina's PJ.
Larsen, Pennsylvania's Darryn
Durhman and Texas' Blake
Wharton were awarded pro
contracts after the race.
Hagins' sponsors - father
David Hagins Sr., mechanic Joe
Pomar, KL Logistics, Kings Bay
Honda, John and Tom Swinson
with ARC-Rite Construction
Scott, SixSixOne, Dunlop and
mother Karen - have helped
him make his way to the races.
He has won many AMA races
in the last four years and com-
petes nearly every weekend
around the Southeast.
Hagins will make the long
journey to Tennessee along
with some of his family and


friends. The race is Aug. 1-8.
Hagins is just one of more
than 20,000 drivers who spent
the last four months qualifying
for the event. The top finishers
in area and regional qualifiers
earn a berth into the national
championship race. Racers may
enter a wide variety of classes,
from minicycle for children as
young as four all the way up to
a senior division for drivers
over 45 years old. There are
also classes for women, and
classes for both stock and mod-
ified bikes.
The track is built on a sec-
tion of Loretta Lynn's Ranch
and Campground. The course
contains a variety of jumps, cor-
ners and obstacles designed to
test the skills and stamina of
the racers.
Anyone interested in sup-
porting Hagins on his trip
should contact him at 548-7253.

FHSAA


restores


cut sports


for high


schools

BETH JONES
News-Leader
High school schedules will not
be reduced the upcoming school
year.
The Florida High School Ath-
letic Association voted 15-0 July 15
to rescind amendments to a new
policy, which cut varsity games by
20 percent and others by 40 per-
cent through the 2010-11 school
year.
The policy, adopted to cut games
and help districts cope with their
economic woes, was shot down by
the FHSAA board of directors to
avoid a lawsuit filed by a group of
parents in Jacksonville in June.
The parents alleged the sched-
ule cuts violate Title X, the federal
law requiring a balance of sports.
for boys and girls.
The cost of the legal battle would
have trickled down to the member
schools of the FHSAA, which
declined to pass on the expense of
a challenge to its members.
'There's an old saying that says
the juice is not worth the squeeze,"
FHSAA executive director Roger
Dearing said.
The news was good for Fernan-
dina Beach High School boys bas-
ketball coach Matt Schreiber, who
has already scheduled games witfi
Providence, "which is the best team
probably in Northeast Florida," he
said.
"For us, it gives us a chance to
add teams to the schedule that we
might rot have been able to play. So,
we've already been able to add a
couple of games."
"We're happy to have those
games added back," Schreiber said.
"I think all athletes will be happy to
have the games added back.
"It's always more fun to play
games than practice. You're going
to do one of the two when you can."
The cuts would have reduced
varsity schedules by.20 percent and
junior varsity and freshman sched-
ules by 40 percent for all sports
except football: and competitive
cheerleading.
"I really.never understood why
they would pick one sport and not
another one," Schreiber said.
"There were many sports that pro-
Sduced revenue that they cut back.
"For the individual athlete, it is
good, and that's what it's really all'
about"

The Buick Open The Buick Open has been an off-
Sand-on tournament on the PGA
Defending: Kenny Perry Toyr since 1958. The inaugural
Total Purse: $5,100,000 event took place in 1958 as the
Yards: 7,127 Buick Open Invitational with Billy
� _. Par: 72 Casper defeating Arnold Palmer
by one stroke. There was no tournament from 1970 through 1976 as the
event was in a state of flux. Once the tournament resumed in 1977, it was
played at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club. The 17th hole at Warwick, a par
3, is known for having one of the rowdiest galleries in professional golf. Fans
often create chants directed at particular golfers, making it a fun place to
watch the tournament. Last year, Kenny Perry, a little over a month shy of his
48th birthday, won the Buick Open, his second win in four starts.

resumed Monday morning and the water-logged tournament
may even spill over into Tuesday. Mike Weir will begin the fourth round on
Monday six shots behind Dufner, Kim and Goosen with 18 holes left to try
and become the first Canadian champion at the event since 1954.


f With most of us in the work force, it is
difficult to have the time to put into
practice what is necessary to raise
our game a level or two. However, it is
this practice that will improve our con-
sistency in the long term and we can
practice different approaches even at
home to make progress. One of the best ways is to
use your mirror at home to check on your set up, grip,
ball position, alignment and posture. Another method
to consistency is to have the sane routine before
every shot. We watch the professionals and every
time, they go through the same set of motions before
a shot. This practice should be followed by the ama-
teur golfer as well to improve our comfort level. Finally,
we can not swing one club harder or softer than the
others. Practice keeping the same tempo for all the
clubs in the bag and the results will be positive.,


The Buick Open will be played for the 45th and final time this week because of the - .
financial problems plaguing General Motors, GolfWeek magazine reported. Tom .
Pernice Jr., a member of the Tour's Player Advisory Council, and a second,
unnamed source, said the Tour planned to formally announce a new sponsor and\'- ..~
venue the week after the tournament is played. Pernice said he could not identify the
new sponsor, but confirmed that this week's Buick Open will be the last. "Buick doesn't
have the finances; GM can't afford it," Pernice said. "From a perception standpoint, you can't lay off
all those people and then sponsor a golf tournament." The Buick Open is one of two PGA Tour events
sponsored by the automaker. The other is the Buick Invitational, which is played in February near San
Diego. The sponsorship contracts for both tournaments run through 2010, Golfweek reported.

team, including Brian Rowe,
Eric Fulk, Ellen Ellerker and
Aaron Coulter, to 19th place
in the largest kingfish catego-

mackerel.
"We fished off the Georgia
coast during the first day of
the tournament and got beat


up pretty bad during the long
boat ride," Stevenson said.
"We also came up empty-
handed. During the second
day of the tournament, we
kingfished close to home at
FA reef and managed to land I
our big king while trolling
double pogy kingfish rigs."
The double pogy kingfish
rig begins with a single No. 1
live bait hook haywire
wrapped to the tag end of a
three-foot section of 32-pound
coffee-colored piano wire. An
eight-inch length of 43-pound
coffee-colored piano wire is
then haywire wrapped to the
eye of the live bait hook.


Next, a second No. 1 live bait
hook is haywire wrapped the
tag end of 43-pound piano
wire. Finally, a short length of
43-pound stinger"wire is hay-
wire wrapped to the eye of'--
the sccbnd hook and a No. 4-
4X treble hook is haywire
wrapped to the tag end of the
"Stinger" wire. The length of
the stinger wire is adjusted so
the stinger hook lies along-
side of the live pogy, jusi
behind the dorsal fin.
Select a large, strong pogy
for the first hook and hook
the pogy right through both
nostrils. A second and smaller
pogy is then hooked through


both nostrils with the second
live bait hook. The double
pogy rig is typically trolled
from a T-top "shotgun" rod
holder on the surface with a

"I have more tournament
winning teams report their
big fish was caught with a
double pogy kingfish rig than
any other type of live bait sys-
tem," said Jack Holmes, gen-
eral manager-of the Southern
Kingfish Association.
Congratulations to all of

passed the new license
requirement to head off a fed-
eral license requirement that
will go into effect Jan. 1, 2010,
and will have a $15-$25 fee
beginning in 2011. Florida's

exempts this state's anglers

and conservation organiza-
tions 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 manage-
ment area permit for hunting,
fishing and other recreational
uses from $25 to $30; the lim-
ited-entry or special-opportu-
nity 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 permit (in addi-
tion 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.

County
RYAN SMITH
NewSLeader
Nassau County Commissioners
unanimously approved Monday
expanding alcohol sales in restaurants
along A1A and allowing those sales to
begin at noon on Sundays.
The previous ordinance required a
minimum distance of 1,000 feet
between churches and establishments
that sell alcohol, and prohibited the
sale of alcohol before 2 p.m. on
Sunday - except in the county's


expands
"tourist district" on the south end of
Amelia Island, where alcohol sales in
resorts like Amelia Island Plantation
Scan begin at noon.
The new ordinance will ease those
restrictions along an A1A "overlay dis-
trict," which encompasses 1,000 feet on
either side of AIA and runs from the
Shave Bridge to just west of 1-95..
"What this new policy will do is
abrogate this 1,000-foot distance restric-
tion for the A1A overlay district,"
Assistant County Attorney Mollie
Garrett told the commission Monday.


alcohol sales along A1A


'That still applies only to establish-
ments that sell alcohol with food,
right?" Commissioner Mike Boyle
asked.
"Restaurants, yes," Garrett said.
The distance restrictions would still
apply to bars.
'There's a definition of a restaurant
that I believe would eliminate bars,"
Garrett said Tuesday. "I think that's
the way it's going to be interpreted."
SBut the relaxed Sunday time restric-
tions would apply to any business that
sells alcohol. "If you pass this, you'll


also allow alcohol to be sold at 12 noon
in the A1A overlay district, just like in
the tourist district," Garrett told the
commission Monday.
Commissioner Stacy Johnson said
the current Sunday time restriction
hurt businesses. "The businesses in
the tourist district have been serving at
noon for years;,ihd surrounding coun-
ties are serving at noon," she said.
Mike Mullin, a former county attor-
ney now in private practice, repre-
sented several business owners who
supported the measure.


"(If you pass the ordinance), you've
kept the tourism overlay district the
same, you've allowed churches and
restaurants to be side by side along
A1A and you've allowed alcohol to be
served at noon," he said.
"If this ordinance passes, and
there's a restaurant - say an Outback
or a Carrabba's - in a strip mall and a
church wants to open up in that strip
mall, they can do it without getting a
conditional use or a variance?" asked

BEAR ON THE PRO WL


Raven Van Pelt of Oak Marsh
Drive, near Egans Creek
Greenway, spotted a black
bear Monday that has been
roaming Amelia Island. The
freelance photographer
quickly began snapping shots
of the bear in her back yard.
To date, the bear has posed
no threat to humans, accord-
ing to Florida Wildlife offi-
cials. The bear was sighted
Tuesday morning eating fish,
crabs and berries at Fort
Clinch State Park, wildlife
officials said. To report a
sighting, call the wildlife alert

Statewide, property values declined, 15 percent, or $360 billion,

Tax hike for




local schools


MICHAEL PARNELL
. VNews-Leader
Local landowners may pay more
property tax next year for Nassau
County schools to help make up for a
shortfall in state funding. But because
of declining property values county-
wide, the' schools actually would
receive less money.
The Nassau County School Board
proposes to levy 7.922 mills in 2009-10,
compared to 7.625 mills this past year.
That's a 5.6 percent increase.
That would cost a taxpayer with a
house valued at $250,000 and a home-
stead exemption $1,782, or $85 more
than the same house generated this
year. The property value has declined
for many homeowners, though, reduc-
ing or in some cases negating the
increase.
"We're a little below the rollback
rate," Susan Farmer, executive direc-
tor of business services for the
schools, said Monday.
A public hearing on the proposed
tax and the school district's 2009-10
budget is scheduled at 5:30 p.m.
Monday at the School Board Office,
1201 Atlantic Ave., Feinandina Beach.
The proposed total budget for
Nassau County schools is $152.8 mil-
lion, about a third of which is fund bal-
ances, reserves or net assets. About
$66 million of the total is provided
from local sources, primarily the prop-


erty tax, with the state contributing
more than $22 million and the federal
government about $15 million.
The state's share has declined this
year by $9.5 million following budget
cuts imposed . by the Florida
Legislature. But federal stimulus fund-
ing makes up for about $7.5 million
of that
Local schools cannot count on
receiving the full amount of that fed-
eral money next year, which could put
more pressure on the budget then.
But it enabled the district to avoid
teacher and other staff layoffs in the
numbers once feared.
School operating expenses will be
higher this year, Farmer said, mainly
because of higher utility costs, health
and property insurance cost rises and
district-wide technology improve-
ments.
Salaries are still being negotiated
with the teachers' union, she said.
The board seeks to spend about
$47 million, $17 million less than was
spent this year, on school construc-
tion.
The school district must purchase
temporary classrooms for Emma Love
Hardee and Southside Elementary
schools, Yulee Primary and Yulee
Elementary schools, to accommodate
enrollments there.
It also plans construction of addi-

Whose land is this?


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Ownership,of a 10-foot-wide by 100-
foot-long parcel that runs along Front
Street next to the Marina Restaurant
north of Centre Street has become the
subject of a dispute.
Marina Restaurant owner Patricia
Toundas, who has been using the par-
cel for customer parking since at least
the early '90s, says it belongs to her.
But Clinch Kavanaugh, who has been
working on a title opinion on Front
Street for the city, says the narrow
strip belongs to the city of Fernandina
Beach.
"Where her building ends, the prop-
erty ends," says Kavanaugh. "A sur-
vey shows she doesn't own the parking
lot (next to the restaurant)."
According to City Attorney Tammi


Bach, nothing has been decided legal-
ly as to who owns the strip of land - the
city, Toundas or CSX railroad. Bach
noted, however, that ownership would
have to be determined before the city
can go forward with infrastructure
improvements for a new waterfront
development project.
Bach said Toundas also cannot
claim the parcel by adverse posses-
sion, even though she has been using
it for many years, because Toundas
has not paid taxes on the property, and
the property may be publicly owned.
Adverse possession is a way a person
can gain title to land owned by anoth-
er person by reason of their continued
use of the land. This legal concept,
however, does not apply to land owned
by a government, only to privately
owned property.
According to a 1992 letter from


Clyde Davis, who was city attorney at
the time, Toundas was allowed to use
the area for parking, but the letter does
not make clear whether Toundas or
the city owned the property. Davis was
also Toundas's attorney at the time.
Davis also claimed that "(customer)
vehicles are not parked within the
right-of-way of Front Street."
Davis says that, based on the infor-
mation he was given at the time, he
gave the city an opinion that Toundas
could not be prevented from having
customers park.next to her building.
Davis added,,however, that "lot bound-
aries in downtown Fernandina Beach
are not (always) fixed and determined."
Kavanaugh, however, says cars
parked next to Toundas's building are
in the railroad's right of way, and that

Patricia Toundas, owner of the Marina Restaurant on Centre Street,

property, but a city-sponsored title opinion disputes her claim.

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/IULIE SHAFFER/GAINESVILLE


For a Harvest of Hope


4 4 b * *
-4 0 *4 *

Amelia Island has
such a special
ambiance. I realized
this almost four
years ago when my family
moved here from Northern
Virginia. From the friendly
people to the wonderful
beaches, life on the island
could not be any better! But
for a.coastal town, it offers
more than fun in the sun, such
as the array of excellent and
unique food at its downtown
restaurants.
One of my favorite places,
Cafe Karibo, has tasty dishes
along with its own brewed
beer and a beautiful outdoor
setting perfect for music. This
combination got me thinking
on how I could draw folks to
Cafe Karibo for a benefit for
the Harvest of Hope'Founda-
tion of which I am currently
doing an internship as part of
my studies at the University of
Florida.
Last year I dauntingly took
on the task of creating my
own major of International
Public Affairs underneath the
interdisciplinary studies pro-
gram in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences. Dr. Ed
Kellerman, senior lecturer at
the Dial Center for Speech
and Communications at UF,
agreed to serve as my thesis
advisor while I finished out
my undergraduate college
years.
This year, as part of my
senior thesis work, I signed on
to be his intern. Dr. Kellerman
is the communications direc-


tor for the
Harvest of
Hope
ae Foundation.
Dr.
Kellerman's
brother, Phil,
established
Shaffer the founda-
tion in 1997 to
provide emer-
gency and educational finan-
cial aid to migrant farmwork-
ers across the country, I was
immediately drawn to the
foundation's philanthropic
work in providing aid to such
hard-working yet needy field
laborers of many of the fruits,
vegetables and other foods
that we enjoy daily. Federal,
state and local aid to migrant
farmworkers is extremely lim-
ited and often not available at
all. As a result, Harvest of
Hope has distributed more
than $744,0000 for car repairs
due to breakdowns, gas, tires,
bus tickets, housing, rent, util-
ities, medical services, food,
clothing, funeral expenses and
scholarships to children of
migrant farmworkers attend-
ing college
Another unique aspect of
the Harvest of Hope Founda- �
tion is that it organizes musi-
cal benefits to help raise
money for migrant farmwork-
ers. So far, the foundation has
hosted numerous events
around Gainesville, as well as
the huge Harvest of Hope
Fest last March at the Saint
John's Fairgrounds just out-
side St. Augustine. After see-

ing first-hand some of the
events that IHarvest of Hope
has organized, I realized that I
could do my share on Amelia
Island.
In June, I hosted a visit of
both. Kellerman brothers and
showed them the beauty of
the island. We dined at Cafe
Karibo, and realized what an
excellent venue for a benefit.
The event coordinator at Cafe
Karibo, Bryan Poynter, eager-
ly agreed to help us out.

Jacksonville. The three-mem-
ber band will play acoustic
selections from their upcom-
ing album "With These
Hands." The album features
two beautiful songs about
migrant farmworkers.
I am excited to have the
opportunity to work with such
great people on such a noble
cause. I invite you to come
out, enjoy Caf6 Karibo's deli-
cious food and drink and to
learn more about the Harvest
of Hope Foundation while lis-
tening to some great music.

County

RYAN SMITH
News Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
unanimously approved Monday
expanding alcohol sales in restaurants
along A1A and allowing those sales to
begin at noon on Sundays.
The previous ordinance required a
minimum distance of 1,000 feet
between churches and establishments
that sell alcohol, and prohibited the
sale of alcohol before 2 p.m. on
Sunday - except in the county's


expands
"tourist district" on the south end of
Amelia Island, where alcohol sales in
resorts like Amelia Island Plantation
can begin at noon.
The new ordinance will ease those
restrictions along an A1A "overlay dis-
trict," which encompasses 1,000 feet on
either side of A1A and runs from the
Shave Bridge to just west of 1-95.
"What this new policy will do is
abrogate this 1,000-foot distance restric-
tion for the A1A overlay district,"
Assistant County Attorney Mollie
Garrett told the commission Monday.


alcohol sales along AlA


"That still applies only to establish-
ments that sell alcohol with food,
right?" Commissioner Mike Boyle
asked.
"Restaurants, yes," Garrett said.
The distance restrictions would still
apply to bars.
"There's a definition of a restaurant
that I believe would eliminate bars,"
Garrett said Tuesday. "I think that's
the way it's going to be interpreted."
But the relaxed Sunday time restric-
tions would apply to any business that
sells alcohol. "If you pass this, you'll


also allow alcohol to be sold at 12 noon
in the A1A overlay district, just like in
the tourist district," Garrett told the
commission Monday.
Commissioner Stacy Johnson said
the current Sunday time restriction
hurt businesses. "The businesses in
the tourist district have been serving at
noon for years, and surrounding coun-
ties are serving at noon," she said.
Mike Mullin, a former county attor-
ney now in private practice, repre-
sented several business owners who
supported the measure.


"(If you pass the ordinance), you've
kept the tourism overlay district the
same, you've allowed churches and
restaurants to be side by side along
A1A and you've allowed alcohol to be
served at noon," he said.
"If this ordinance passes, and
there's a restaurant - say an Outback
or a Carrabba's - in a strip mall and a
church wants to open up in that strip
mall, they can do it without getting a
conditional use or a variance?" asked

BEAR ON THE PRO WL


Raven Van Pelt of Oak Marsh
Drive, near Egans Creek
Greenway, spotted a black
bear Monday that has been
roaming Amelia Island. The
freelance photographer
quickly began snapping shots
of the bear in her back yard.
To date, the bear has posed
no threat to humans, accord-
ing to Florida Wildlife offi-
cials. The bear was sighted
Tuesday morning eating fish,
crabs and berries at Fort
Clinch State Park, wildlife
officials said. To report a
sighting, call the wildlife alert
hotline at 1-888-404-3922.

Propertyvalues fall
Nassau County properly values are estimated to have fallen
$241 million, or 3.4 percent, in 2009 compared to last year. The
estimated value of all property in Ihe county Ihis year is $8.37 bil-
lion, down from the $8.62 billion confirmed valuation in 2008.
Statewide, properly values declined 15 percent, or $360 billion.
to $2.1 trillion, based on county properly appraisals, according to
Ihe 5 . - . -r~ Hr-, I./,- Tiliu ,'. The newspaper reported that proper-
ly values decreased Ihe most. 26 percent, in Lee County in soulh-
west Florida: second was SI. Lucie County, in Soulh Florida, with a
24 percent decline





Tax hike for




local schools


MICHAEL PARNELL
News Leader
Local landowners may pay more
property tax next year for Nassau
County schools to help make up for a
shortfall in state funding. But because
of declining property values county-
wide, the schools actually would
receive less money.
The Nassau County School Board
proposes to levy 7.922 mills in 2009-10,
compared to 7.625 mills this past year.
That's a 5.6 percent increase.
That would cost a taxpayer with a
house valued at $250,000 and a home-
stead exemption $1,782, or $85 more
than the same house generated this
year. The property value has declined
for many homeowners, though, reduc-
ing or in some cases negating the
increase.
"We're a little below the rollback
rate," Susan Farmer, executive direc-
tor of business services for the
schools, said Monday.
A public hearing on the proposed
tax and the school district's 2009-10
budget is scheduled at 5:30 p.m.
Monday at the School Board Office,
1201 Atlantic Ave., Fernandina Beach.
The proposed total budget for
Nassau County schools is $152.8 mil-
lion, about a third of which is fund bal-
ances, reserves or net assets. About
$66 million of the total is provided
from local sources, primarily the prop-


erty tax, with the state contributing
more than $22 million and the federal
government about $15 million.
The state's share has declined this
year by $9.5 million following budget
cuts imposed by the Florida
Legislature. But federal stimulus fund-
ing makes up for about $7.5 million
of that.
Local schools cannot count on
receiving the full amount of that fed-
eral money next year, which could put
more pressure on the budget then.
But it enabled the district to avoid
teacher and other staff layoffs in the
numbers once feared.
School operating expenses will be
higher this year, Farmer said, mainly
because of higher utility costs, health
and property insurance cost rises and
district-wide technology improve-
ments.
Salaries are still being negotiated
with the teachers' union, she said.
The board seeks to spend about
$47 million, $17 million less than was
spent this year, on school construc-
tion.
The school district must purchase
temporary classrooms for Emma Love
Hardee and Southside Elementary
schools, Yulee Primary and Yulee
Elementary schools, to accommodate
enrollments there.
It also plans construction of addi-

Whose land is this?


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
Ownership of a 10-foot-wide by 100-
foot-long parcel that runs along Front
Street next to the Marina Restaurant
north of Centre Street has become the
subject of a dispute.
Marina Restaurant owner Patricia
Toundas, who has been using the par-
cel for customer parking since at least
the early '90s, says it belongs to her.
But Clinch Kavanaugh, who has been
working on a title opinion on Front
Street for the city, says the narrow
strip belongs to the city of Fernandina
Beach.
"Where her building ends, the prop-
erty ends," says Kavanaugh. "A sur-
vey shows she doesn't own the parking
lot (next to the restaurant)."
According to City Attorney Tammi


Bach, nothing has been decided legal-
ly as to who owns the strip of land - the
city, Toundas or CSX railroad. Bach
noted, however, that ownership would
have to be determined before the city
can go forward with infrastructure
improvements for a new waterfront
development project.
Bach said Toundas also cannot
claim the parcel by adverse posses-
sion, even though she has been using
it for many years, because Toundas
has not paid taxes on the property, and
the property may be publicly owned.
Adverse possession is a way a person
can gain title to land owned by anoth-
er person by reason of their continued
use of the land. This legal concept,
however, does not apply to land owned
by a government, only to privately
owned property.
According to a 1992 letter from


Clyde Davis, who was city attorney at
the time, Toundas was allowed to use
the area for parking, but the letter does
not make clear whether Toundas or
the city owned the property. Davis was
also Toundas's attorney at the time.
Davis also claimed that "(customer)
vehicles are not parked within the
right-of-way of Front Street."
Davis says that, based on the infor-
mation he was given at the time, he
gave the city an opinion that Toundas
could not be prevented from having
customers park next to her building.
Davis added, however, that "lot bound-
aries in downtown Fernandina Beach
are not (always) fixed and determined."
Kavanaugh, however, says cars
parked next to Toundas's building are
in the railroad's right of way, and that

ANGELA DAUGHTRY/NEWS-LEADER
Patricia Toundas, owner of the Marina Restaurant on Centre Street,
says this 10-foot-wide strip of land next to her building is part of her
property, but a city-sponsored title opinion disputes her claim.

CITY Continued from 1A
railroad safety is as important an
issue as ownership.
"All (CSX Railroad) cares
about is doing their operations
safely and efficiently. ... They
can't do it because of parking
on city property on Front
Street." Kavanaugh also noted
that the city could be liable if
an accident happened on the
railroad tracks.
"The railroad says it's a con-
tinuous problem and (the
Florida Department of
Transportation) says (the area)
should be cleaned up,"
Kavanaugh said.
Toundas, however, says that
even with customers parking on
Front Street, there is barely
enough parking for everyone,
especially during lunchtime.
Some of her customers have
been forced to park in a private
lot across the railroad tracks,
north of Parking Lot A.
She also noted two restau-
rant signs were recently stolen
from the property.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor said city staff met with
Toundas to work on "an agree-
able Front Street solution."
"The railroad says they have
certain rights and ownership to
the property," said Czymbor,
who also noted that the city
would be working with all five
property owners on that side of
Front Street to meet their needs.
Kavanaugh said he and the
city would be working with CSX
and property owners for the
proper easements and quitclaim
deeds necessary to begin work-
ing on the infrastructure needs
of the Front Street waterfront
project.
Kavanaugh said easements
also would be necessary for
access to the parking lot behind
Toundas's building and for the
property owned by his brother
Bill Kavanaugh directly behind
Toundas's.

Commissioner Walter
Boatright.
"Yes, that's correct,"
Mullin said.
"We're allowing the sword
to cut both ways, is all," said
Commission Chair Barry
Holloway.
However, the ordinance
didn't address any business-
es outside the A1A overlay
district. That puts businesses
in other parts of the county at
a disadvantage, said David
Martineau, owner of the
Redneck Yacht Club at
850019 US 17, Yulee.
Martineau said his business,
which is near the Duval
County line, suffers under
Nassau County's 2 p.m. time
restriction. Potential cus-
tomers, he said, simply go
into Duval County on
Sunday rather than wait until
2 p.m. to buy a beer in Yulee.
"I'm not the only business
on 17," Martineau said. "...
I'd think the county would
embrace people like me
who've spent their life sav-
ings to start a business that
wasn't there before."
Boatright pointed out that
Duval County restaurants can
sell drinks starting at 7 a.m.
on Sunday. "Are you going
to come back and say you
want to change it to 7 a.m.?"
"No, I just want to be on a
level playing field with The
Ritz-Carlton," Martineau said.


"They can serve at noon."
"Today I think we're look-
ing at this issue along A1A
to 95," said Commissioner
Mike Boyle.
"I think it's unfair to
restrict it to this corridor of
commerce along A1A,"
Martineau said.
"And that's a reasonable
argument, but we're here
tonight to address another
issue," Boyle said.
"But how can businesses
operate when there's restric-
tions that don't apply to
everyone?" Martineau asked.
"No one's against what
you're saying," Holloway
said. "... My recommendation
would be to get with (County
Coordinator Ed) Sealover's
office and the county attor-
ney, and see if we need to
amend this ordinance."
County Attorney David
Hallman agreed to meet with
Martineau to discuss extend-
ing the relaxed Sunday
restrictions beyond the A1A
overlay district. He said there
were also other tweaks to the
ordinance worth considering.
"This change in the over-
lay area will only change dis-
tances with regard to restau-
rants in the overlay area," he
said. "... You're not changing
the distance between a
church and, for example, a
liquor store. Well, people are
not drinking coming out of
that liquor store, so why's
that necessary?"

Time to pare


government


Encumbered by the severe
economic recession, cities and
counties are caught between a
rock of declining revenues and
a hard place of an unyielding
public opposed to tax increases.
There are two choices: to
increase revenues, which most-
ly means raising taxes, or to
slash spending and reduce the
size of government.
Here in Nassau County, as
budgets are being prepared for
the next fiscal year, officials are
grappling with the reality of
budget cuts and difficult per-
sonnel decisions. Maintaining
budgets at the levels of recent
years is unattainable.
Nassau County Commission-
ers are eying a budget that is
15 percent below last year. They
are being impacted by reduced
revenues from sales and prop-
erty taxes, as well as fees.
In Fernandina Beach, city
commissioners are faced with
a similar outlook and task.
Although budget cuts at the city
do not appear to be as severe,
the task is to do more with less,
or else increase revenues.
An idea floated by Fernan-
dina Beach city officials to begin
charging parking fees has lost
much of its air due to public
opposition. Residents respond-
ed angrily to the issue on a web-
site question posed by Mayor
Susan Steger.
The parking fees would be
charged at the beach as well as
downtown under the proposal.
However, significant wrath was
targeted, especially at the idea of
charging tolls or fees for parking
downtown.
Downtown businesses have
also felt the sting of the reces-
sion. Parking is now free and
fairly accessible downtown. The
concern is that by charging a
fee to park, it may be enough to
deter visitors from going down-
town.
City and county officials will
have to get creative to solve the


funding short-
falls they face.
The county is
considering

Steve Nicklas would be no
layoffs, but a
hiring freeze would prevent any
new positions from being added.
County commissioners are re-
sponding to a severe downturn
in tax receipts, as property val-
ues have fallen dramatically in
recent years. Also, sales taxes
have declined as residents and
tourists are spending less now.
Both city and county officials
should take the lead from the
business sector. When revenues
decline, businesses respond by
reducing expenses. This can be
through layoffs or other cost-
cutting measures.
Governments at all levels
operate on tax revenues and
fees. Now is not the time to
increase any items on this side
of the balance sheet. It is time to
reduce costs - and the size of
government.
There is room to cut gov-
ernment expenses on all levels.
Families are doing it; business-
es are doing it. So why not gov-
ernment?
Hopefully, the bold initiative
by county officials to pare costs
and expenses - and reduce the
size of the budget - will be fol-
lowed by other municipalities
in our area. It is the hard thing
to do, but the right thing.

'Barrel' of fun school


SUBMITTED
"I love this community and am so appreciative of the
support that I have received these 14 years in business.
Many of my customers have become close friends," says
Dina Dobrosky Martin, owner of Monkey Barrel.


HEATHER. PERRY
News Leader

With school days just
around the corner, Dina Dobro-
sky Martin of the Monkey
Barrel is bracing for the
onslaught of parents looking for
special togs for their children.
Martin was born and raised
in Fernandina Beach. Working
retail during high school and
college whetted her appetite to
run her own business someday.
"I took several small busi-
ness development and finance
classes during and after I grad-
uated college. I took these class-
es so that I would know how to
properly manage the business
side of a company," said Martin.
The choice to open a chil-
dren's boutique stemmed from
both an enjoyment of working in
retail and being around chil-
dren.
After obtaining the keys
from her landlord at midnight
on March 1, 1996, Martin
worked through the night with
family and friends and was open
for business at 10 a.m. that
morning at The Spa & Shops
at Amelia Island Plantation.
When asked how she came
up with the name for her shop,


Martin said she wanted to cre-
ate a whimsical atmosphere and
to use an animal that all chil-
dren would love.
"I decided to go with a mon-
key theme. A good friend of
mine helped me come up with
the name and it's been a big
hit."
Martin travels to New York,
Dallas, Atlanta and Orlando to
find the items she stocks.
Among the labels to be
found at Monkey Barrel are
Bailey Boys, Le Top, Rabbit
Moon, Kissy Kissy, E-Land, and
Puddle Jumper shoes, to name
a few. Clothing is stocked in
sizes to fit newborns to size 10
for boys and size 14 for girls.
Toy brands include a full line
of Thomas the Tank Engine, a
variety of puzzles, games, dolls,
cars, pool and beach toys as
well as stuffed animals and arts
and crafts kits.
With a Facebook page and e-
mail access, Monkey Barrel
ships all over. Martin says she
believes the furthest she has
shipped is Greece.
"I have customers from all
over the country who like to
keep me updated on what is
popular in their area. I have

For a Harvest of Hope


I WANT TC
AIr \w


Amelia Island has
such a special
ambiance. I realized
this almost four
years ago when my family
moved here from Northern
Virginia. From the friendly
people to the wonderful
beaches, life on the island
could not be any better! But
for a coastal town, it offers
more than fun in the sun, such
as the array of excellent and
unique food at its downtown
restaurants.
One of my favorite places,
Cafe Karibo, has tasty dishes
along with its own brewed
beer and a beautiful outdoor
setting perfect for music. This
combination got me thinking
on how I could draw folks to
Cafe Karibo for a benefit for
the Harvest of Hope Founda-
tion of which I am currently
doing an internship as part of
my studies at the University of
Florida.
Last year I dauntingly took
on the task of creating my
own major of International
Public Affairs underneath the
interdisciplinary studies pro-
gram in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences. Dr. Ed
Kellerman, senior lecturer at
the Dial Center for Speech
and Communications at UF,
agreed to serve as my thesis
advisor while I finished out
my undergraduate college
years.
This year, as part of my
senior thesis work, I signed on
to be his intern. Dr. Kellerman
is the communications direc-


tor for the
Harvest of
Hope
Foundation.
Dr.
SKellerman's
brother, Phil,
established
Shaffer the founda-
tion in 1997 to
provide emer-
gency and educational finan-
cial aid to migrant farmwork-
ers across the country. I was
immediately drawn to the
foundation's philanthropic
work in providing aid to such
hard-working yet needy field
laborers of many of the fruits,
vegetables and other foods
that we enjoy daily. Federal,
state and local aid to migrant
farmworkers is extremely lim-
ited and often not available at
all. As a result, Harvest of
Hope has distributed more
than $744,0000 for car repairs
due to breakdowns, gas, tires,
bus tickets, housing, rent, util-
ities, medical services, food,
clothing, funeral expenses and
scholarships to children of
migrant farmworkers attend-
ing college
Another unique aspect of
the Harvest of Hope Founda-
tion is that it organizes musi-
cal benefits to help raise
money for migrant farmwork-
ers. So far, the foundation has
hosted numerous events
around Gainesville, as well as
the huge Harvest of Hope
Fest last March at the Saint
John's Fairgrounds just out-
side St. Augustine. After see-

Saturday from 6:30-9:30
p.m.
Cafe Karibo has agreed

from their pub beer and
homemade sangria to the
Harvest of Hope
Foundation.
Performing will be the
Mike Bernos Trio of
Jacksonville.

ing first-hand some of the
events that Harvest of Hope
has organized, I realized that I
could do my share on Amelia
Island.
In June, I hosted a visit of
both Kellerman brothers and
showed them the beauty of
the island. We dined at Cafe
Karibo, and realized what an
excellent venue for a benefit.
The event coordinator at Cafe
Karibo, Bryan Poynter, eager-
ly agreed to help us out.
The first benefit show on
Amelia Island for the Harvest
of Hope Foundation will be
held at Cafe Karibo from 6:30-
9:30 p.m. Saturday.
Cafe Karibo has agreed to
generously donate that even-
ing half of the profits from
their home-brewed pub beer
and homemade sangria to the
Harvest of Hope Foundation.
Performing will be the
Mike Bernos Trio of
Jacksonville. The three-mem-
ber band will play acoustic
selections from their upcom-
ing album "With These
Hands." The album features
two beautiful songs about
migrant farmworkers.
I am excited to have the
opportunity to work with such
great people on such a noble
cause. I invite you to come
out, enjoy Cafe Karibo's deli-
cious food and drink and to
learn more about the Harvest
of Hope Foundation while lis-
tening to some great music.

['Not in Fernandina Beach'?


option" of a few years ago? Republicans
in the U.S. Senate were poised to elimi-
nate or significantly alter the cham-
ber's filibuster rules - the use of unlimited
debate to delay or kill a piece of legislation or
the approval of presidential appointees. Senate
Democrats, then a minority, had successfully
used the filibuster to block or delay the nomi-
nees of President Bush to fill vacancies in the
federal judiciary. The "nuclear option" - the
unthinkable option - would have severely limit-
ed long-held, long-cherished minority party
rights in the Senate's debate process. Clear
thinking Republicans and Democrats rightly
rejected it as extremist.
Well, our own local "nuclear option" is alive
and well in fantasyland - City Hall. At the city
commission's annual retreat, the city manager,
searching for ways to fill the budget gap, sug-
gested the possibility of a public access tax.
This tax, he said, could generate as much as
$1.5 million from law-abiding citizens, and
another $700,000 in fines. The commission's
response? Silence, save for Commissioner Tim
Poynter, who thought it was a fine idea. Silence.
How things have changed.
Now, I don't fault the city manager for bring-
ing this idea forward. He's doing his job. And I
respect Commissioner Poynter's support,
though I vehemently disagree with it. The
remainder of the commission, though, should
have done what every commissioner had done
Since the early 1980's - they should have, figu-
ratively, hung out a sign that said, "Not in
Fernandina Beach." By not doing so, through
their silence, they implied support for the
unthinkable. They implied their willingness to
entertain the "nuclear option;" they didn't rule
out taxing public access, something many peo-
ple in this community have fought to protect


for many years.
This idea, this public
.. - access tax, isn't new. When
* the city began opening street
ends on the east side of South
Fletcher in the early 1980's, a
few people - no commission-
ers - wanted to impose a fee
or tax to help pay for the
annual maintenance. The
DEBATE commission hung out that
AND sign, "Not in Fernandina
TACKLE Beach."
Again, in the early 1990s,
- .' - some on the city's Financial
Ron Sapp Advisory Committee suggest-
ed re-visiting the idea of a
public access tax. Like before, the tax was seen
as a revenue source to be earmarked for annual
maintenance and expansion of public beach
access. Again, the commission hung out that
sign.
So, here we go again, only this time no one
on the commission can find the sign. They
should look long and hard for it, here are three
reasons why:
(1) The "Let's just make up these numbers"
phenomenon. There is no evidence that pro-
jected public access tax revenues haven't fallen
victim to this well-established bureaucratic
strategy - public or private bureaucracies. $1.5
million in revenue? What formula was used?
Where's the empirical evidence? $700,000 in
fines? How'd you get that number? The com-
mission has to ask staff to justify the projec-
tions.
(2) This is going to be a logistical nightmare
to implement and enforce. How does one
obtain a beach parking pass at a kiosk located
at Main Beach? Well, suppose I want to spend
some time at Seaside Park or North Beach


Park. Do I first have to go to Main Beach and
get a pass? Suppose my pass is for one hour but
I want to stay longer. Will I have to fear my car
being towed by the "public access police?" And
what about enforcement? Will it fall to city
police, a separate enforcement group or what?
An absolute nightmare. And what about city
residents? Will they be subjected to the tax?
After all, they already pay property taxes,
which support and maintain over 40 public
beach accesses. Wouldn't that be double taxa-
tion?
(3) The philosophical or ideological prob-
lem. For many of us, public beach access is a
natural right and we've worked hard to pre-
serve that right since the resort era began in
the early 1970s. If you believe that no one owns
the ocean and no one owns the beach and that
people, all people, have the natural right to get
to and use those natural assets, then taxing that
use would be an abomination.
Perhaps the city manager and the commis-
sion brought this old, many times rejected idea
forward as a "trial balloon," meant to test the
political winds. What a waste of theirs and the
people's time. All one needs is a cursory knowl-
edge of our city's history to know that there is
no need to focus group this idea, or to subject it
to an imprecise, unscientific Internet straw poll.
It is, quite simply, a bad idea.
Specious number, logistical problems -
good reasons, both, to reject the idea of a pub-
lic access tax. What I am waiting to hear, what I
want to hear, is the city commission rejecting
the idea on philosophical grounds. I want to
hear them say that the people have a natural
right to enjoy the ocean and the beach, and that
to tax that natural right would be wrong.
I want them to find the sign and hang it out
again: "Not in Fernandina Beach."

Re: Jason Rowe's letter, July 22.
In referencing the Florida House

Mr. Rowe's rather obtuse sentence
says it all: "My business was on

downtown and not really any of my

Mr. Rowe is light years away

No butterflies
We were so interested in Pat
Foster-Turley's article about the but-
terflies (uly 22). We had noticed
all summer that for the first time in
about 10 years of our coming to
Amelia, we have not seen one of
these beautiful creatures. We live
on the south end of the island, never
ever kill anything that could possibly
be a larva, have lots of plants and
flowers and yet we are void of but-
terflies. What has happened?

Bear sighting
I have no problem with your post-
ing this response should you choose
to do so as I read your article on
the bear sighting:
As I read this article on the sight-
ing of a black bear, I am reminded
that we live in a region of not only
Florida, but the country, where
sometimes nearly extinct wildlife
intermingle with human beings. We
need to remember that we cut down
the trees and expanded our "views"
of the ocean, sunset, etc., for our
selfish good, at the expense of the
natural habitat many wildlife once
enjoyed with no interest in harm-
ing human beings.
Not one human being should
consider the thought of harming
this bear, not a mom, not a dad or
otherwise. We need to take a deep
breath, think for a minute, then
retreat and allow a far more wise
and instinctive "being" to find
his/her way home.
Humans are the only species that
have ego, selfishness and feel the
"entitlement" to shoot and kill for
better property values, a better view
or otherwise. All self-involved, self-
centered and arrogant agendas.
Amelia Island residents need to
cherish this sighting as a gift to see
something pure and wild; not false
or pretentious in nature. We need to
stop forcing the relocation, injury
and deaths of wildlife so we can


THAT BIG CLOUD LOOKS
LIKE THE LOOMING
SOCIAL SECURITY CRISIS.


"develop" communities for our
human-like, ego-centered agendas -
more/better views, more property,
etc.
Amelia Island residents have a
wealth of land, enough property for
all, and a beautifully, rare gift of
wildlife they need not massacre any
more. It is time for this county of
Nassau to evolve, appreciate and
respect the wildlife that has far more
instinctive intelligent than most who
populate our census. They bow to
our ignorance and arrogance on a
daily basis. Enough.
We are the only species who
takes far more than it gives back to
the larger world. It would serve each
and every one of us exponential
good to spend a day simply watch-
ing, adoring and hoping the best for
the survival of a bear or otherwise
who knows universal rules that rec-
ognize that every human and ani-
mal, alike, deserves food, safety,
respect, caring and a chance to real-
ize their own destiny. We are the
enemy, not the bear.

American heroes
If it was not for the News-Leader
July 22), I would not have known of
the deaths of two real American
heroes, Capt Everett Pope and
Darrell "Shifty" Powers. Both served
their country with honor during the
darkest days of war.
There was no mention of their
deaths on national network news.
There was no memorial service in
our nation's capital. I guess that in
the words of Gen. Douglas
MacArthur, "Old soldiers never die,
they just fade away."
I would have expected some hon-
orable mention from our nation's
capital. If the death of one enter-
tainer who apparently made major
contributions to music and mankind
can get accolades from the White
House, then surely two old soldiers
who gave their blood, sweat and
tears to defend our country can get
a footnote from some politician in
Washington.
Stan Miller
Fernandina Beach
Editor's note: The letter on Darrell
"Shifty"Powers was a copy of a letter
circulating on the Internet. According
to about.com, Powers was a World


War II hero and member of the "Band
of Brothers" made famous by the
Stephen Ambrose book and HBO
miniseries of the same title. He died
on June 17. However, the local resi-
dent who submitted that letter did not
experience what was published. The
News-Leader strives to avoid publi-
cation of letters circulating on the
Internet. We regret the error
Patient courtesy?
If you have a doctor that knows
your history and you are in need of
medicine to keep you healthy, they
will write you a prescription. If they
know you are on a fixed income and
it's hard times, they may even give
you samples. Not so with my vet.
My puppy went for all his shots
and was neutered as well. He is on
a regime of heartworm and flea
medicines. Since I am on a fixed
income, I went online and found
places to receive my medicine
cheaper than I could buy from the
vet. I went and asked for a pre-
scription. First the receptionist
repeated over and over how medi-
cines found online may not be safe.
They may be tainted by being left in
hot trailers or be beyond the expi-
ration date. I am not that stupid to
buy from some disreputable com-
pany. Finally, I was able to convince
her that I would still like the pre-
scription.
Then the office manager told me
that they would have to charge me
$15 for it. After further discussion,
I was able to convince him to match
the price I found online. He said he
would, but when I went back with
the information I was informed by
the receptionist that I would still be
charged the $15. She was very hard
and straightforward. No compas-
sion at all and continued to voice
that allvets charge for a prescription.
After confirming with the manager
they matched the price online. I only
saved a couple of dollars but those
dollars were in my pocket. And then
I found out that I was paying a lot
more for only buying one pill at a
time. I was never informed by them
that it was costing me more. I guess
they were enjoying the profit.
I need to take my animal where
they can understand hard times, are
out there for everyone and will work
with their patients. The vet should
check into what goes on in the
office. I can't believe they would

Health care reform
The AARP is committed to the
health care reform, and that sounds
good to those of us over 50. They
solicited my financial help to keep
their ad on the airwaves support-
ing President Obama's health care
program. Their e-mail request iden-
tified Americans ages 50 to 64 as
needing access to affordable care.
Since I am aware that this same
reform will ration health care for
those of us older than this group
even if we are insured, I replied to
their e-mail by asking the AARP if
they still represented my age group.
They did not respond to my ques-
tion. I guess it would be too hard for
them to try to explain how under
the national health plan they sup-
port a group of constituents would
be left out in the cold.
Age will be used to determine
your eligibility for medical care (it
has already started in specific cases
such as screening for prostate can-
cer). Read some of the reports of
the U.S. Preventive Services Task
Force. Phrases such as "competing
causes of death" and "a mortality
benefit" are used to justify such dis-
crimination. Even President Obama
signaled that this is the road his
administration wants to travel. At a
town hall meeting on health care
reform, he commented on a 100-
year old woman who had received a
pacemaker. He indicated she should
have just been given a pain pill.
So if you are in your 70s and con-
sidering elective surgery, better do
it soon.

Sen. Jim King dies:



23 years in legislature


State Sen. James E. "Jim"
King, Jr., of Jacksonville died
Sunday of cancer.
King served in the Florida
Senate from 1999 until his
death, serving as president of
the Senate from 2002 to 2004
and majority leader of both the
House of Representatives and
the Senate. King served in the
Florida House for 12 years prior
to his election to the Senate.
With 23 years of public service,
he was one of the longest serv-
ing members of the Florida
Legislature.
"There is a great sense of
loss in the district with Sen.
King's passing," State Rep. Janet
Adkins said in a statement.
"Sen. King was a true leader in
every sense and a great advo-
cate to the people in North
Florida. He was a great friend to
the constituents that he served
and the leaders that he worked
with. He will be deeply missed
by the community and the
Nassau delegation.
"Sen. King's decades of ded-
ication to Floridians and stead-
fast determination to do what
was right are invaluable and rep-
resent only a few of his many
admired attributes," she said.
"His ability to unite Republicans
and Democrats alike as many
critical and highly publicized
issues were considered is truly
remarkable.
"Sen. King was a man that
spoke his mind and stood his
ground. In return, he was able
to gain unwavering support
from Floridians and political fig-
ures regardless of party affilia-
tion. Our prayers, love and sup-
port go out to Mrs. King and
the entire King family as they


move forward
during this dif-
ficult time,"
Adkins said.
A well-
k n o w n
[IkV Jacksonville
businessman
King who made his
mark in per-
sonnel recruit-
ing, temporary help and
employee testing industries,
King achieved a record of suc-
cess during his tenure in the
legislature. His "tell it like it is"
attitude, jovial demeanor and
ability to bridge gaps and bring
dueling sides together marked
his career.
One of his most notable
achievements was the passage
of Florida's Life Prolonging
Procedures Act, known as the
"Death with Dignity Legisla-
tion." King believed it was every
competent adult's fundamental
right to make their own deci-
sions regarding medical treat-
ment in the event of serious ill-
ness when death is imminent,
and to be treated with dignity.
This act established procedures
for making a living will to help
ensure that a person's final wish-
es are honored, paving the way
for other states across the
nation to enact the same laws.
King has been honored by
the Florida Chamber of
Commerce, the Jacksonville
Chamber of Commerce, the
Trust for Public Lands for his
work to preserve Florida's
Everglades, the American Heart
Association, the Florida Police
Chiefs Association, the
University of North Florida and
Florida State University, to


name a few. He received Mayo
Clinic's Health Care Leadership
Award for his efforts to estab-
lish cancer research as an
important public policy of the
state of Florida. In 2006, King
received the Bob Graham
Award from the Florida Lake
Management Society for his
efforts at preserving the St.
Johns River and Florida's water-
ways. Most recently, as a result
of the establishment of the
James and Esther King
Biomedical Research Founda-
tion, King was honored by his
alma mater, Florida State
University, with the naming of a
major research building on its
campus. The Jim King Life
Sciences Building, on the FSU
campus in Tallahassee, will also
be his final resting place.
King was most recently hon-
ored, only days before his pass-
ing, with the announcement of
the naming of the annual king-
fish tournament location in
Jacksonville as The Jim King
Park and Boat Ramp at Sisters
Creek. An avid fisherman and
longtime scuba diver, King
emceed the tournament for
more than 25 years.
King was known for his love
of Labrador retrievers, having
many black labs as beloved pets
over the years, two of which will
be interred with him at his final
resting place.
King is survived by his wife
of almost 30 years, Linda
Braddock
Memorial services will be
held at the St. John's Cathedral
in Jacksonville on Saturday at 11
a.m. and in Tallahassee at the
State Capitol, House Chambers,
on Tuesday at 2 p.m.

One of the delights of a trip
to Northern California is a near-
guaranteed chance to watch
large mammals close up. It's
been four years since my last
trip to my old Bay Area haunts,
so a couple of weeks ago I had
a lot of large mammal watching
to catch up on.
We do have some large
mammals here on Amelia
Island, for sure. Often I get a
chance to see deer, and dol-
phins and manatees, and even
the tracks and signs of feral
hogs. But
none of these
species offer
more than a

mals move

Pat the northern
Foster-Turley California
osr ty coast - these
mammals stay put, and put on a
show while they're at it. One
thing that seals like to do is haul
out on beaches, on regular
places where people can usual-
ly count on seeing them. Since
most of my old California
friends are nature-lovers like
me, seals naturally worked their
way into a number of my days
on the coast.
The first seals I found were
harbor seals, a couple hundred
of them, all sharing a spit of land

near the mouth of the Russian
River. A vantage point from a
bluff above them with conven-
ient roadside parking yielded
great photo ops and a stunning
coastal view. Harbor seals are
brown and spotted, and indi-
vidually marked if you get to
know them. Like most seals
they are "positively thigmotac-
tic" (one of my favorite biologi-
cal phrases), and like to squeeze
in together, resting their bod-
ies on each other.
The fun in watching them
comes when new seals
approach the beach where ear-
lier arrivals are already nestled
close together. Each seal pre-
sumably knows the others from
long standing associations, and
finding just the right place to
doze in touching contact takes
lots of shuffling and reshuffling,
endlessly fascinating to watch.
Harbor seals are small
Pinnipeds weighing around 250
pounds and they are dwarfed
by their gigantic cousins, the
elephant seals that may weigh
more than two tons. Each year
hundreds of thousands of visi-
tors make their way to Ano
Neuvo State Park to see the ele-
phant seals, and this year I was
one of them. In years gone by,
when I lived in the area with
then-sea-lion-trainer, Bucko, I
made lots of trips to Ano Neuvo
before it was "discovered." In
those days, the lucky few of us

who knew about the elephant
seal beach were able to freely
roam in and among these behe-
moths, ever careful not to get
between two bulls jousting
bloodily for dominance and
breeding access to harems of
much smaller females.
Now, though, the beach at
Ano Neuvo is a tightly con-
trolled visitor experience, with
all but a walking path on the
bluff off limits, and docent nat-
uralists stationed at every view-
ing point on the bluffs above
the seals.
The distance hardly mat-
tered, at least to me. The seals
were still actively engaged in
their pre-breeding activities, at
a safe distance, but close
enough to capture with my dig-
ital camera. The day I visited
Ano Neuvo was slightly over-
cast and cooler than recent
days, and the males on the
beach were getting heated up
on their own. Everywhere I
looked bull sea lions were joust-
ing with their rivals in practice


mode, getting ready for the real
thing to follow a couple of
months later, while females
lounged lazily in harbor seal
fashion nearby, watching the
contests.
I had a difficult time drag-
ging myself away from the ele-
phant seal beach, but I was
more than ready to board the
plane back to Florida when the
time came. This short re-taste of
California was a fun nature-
watching experience but the
traffic and crowds and hordes of
people everywhere reminded
me why I left in the first place.
At home again on Amelia
Island I was bombarded with
the news. A harbor-seal-sized
terrestrial mammal, a bear, was
traveling up and down our
island! Here I flew to California
to watch large mammals and
there was one on my own turf!
So now the trip to California
has already faded from my mind
and new adventures are wait-
ing for me again here in North
Florida. I'm back to walking the

POLICE REPORT


August is
avs i at ion


This was written by Jason
Yurgartis of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, the city of Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,
Hilliard and Bryceville. The "We
Tip"program - 1-800-78CRIME
- also allows callers to leave
anonymous tips.
Theft alleged
A Nassau County Sheriff's
deputy responded to an alleged
aggravated assault, burglary
and theft on the 43000 block of
Kids Coach Lane in Callahan
on July 24.
A 60-year-old man told offi-
cers his stepson, Casey Tatum,
came to his home uninvited and
held a pistol to his head. Tatum
had his shirt pulled up to cover
his face from the nose down
and said, "This is a stickup," the
report said. The man said
Tatum then fired the pistol into
the ground outside the home
and revealed his face.
According to the report,
Tatum then headed for a garage
where the man soon followed
and the two worked on a car.
Tatum then said he was thirsty
and entered the home for a
drink. The man followed Tatum
and noticed his wallet and a roll
of dimes missing and confront-
ed Tatum, who denied taking
the property. Tatum then head-
ed for his truck, parked outside
the home, but the man didn't
follow because he was afraid
Tatum was going for the gun,
the report stated. Tatum left the
area in an unknown direction.
According to the report, the
deputy planned to contact the
State Attorney's Office in an
attempt to obtain a warrant for
Tatum.
Prescription fraud
A Callahan woman was
arrested July 22 for concealing
information to fraudulently
obtain a prescription and mak-
ing false statements to obtain
Medicaid services of less than
$20,000.
According to an incident
report, a doctor tipped off the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
that a patient, Michele Nicholle
Dettman, 37, of 45157 Brown


St., Apt. 103, was receiving con-
trolled substances from other
doctors. Dettman was seen in
the reporting doctor's office on
June 12, June 18 and July 6 and
was prescribed several con-
trolled substances, the report
stated. But the doctor recently
received information from the
state Medicaid office that
Dettman had additional pre-
scriptions and was seeing a total
of three doctors.
According to the report, she
was using Medicaid to pay for
various office visits as well as
controlled substances over a 30-
day period.
Dettman said the controlled
substances were sent to
Alabama to family members,
the report stated. She was
arrested and her child was
placed in the custody of the
Department of Children and
Families.
Car burglaries
Authorities investigated two
auto burglaries each in three
area neighborhoods last week.


BEAT


Two burglaries were report-
ed about an hour apart in the
Egans Bluff subdivision in
Fernandina Beach on July 22,
the first just before 9 a.m.
According to an incident report,
a resident of the 2700 block of
Sterling Court reported the rear
passenger window of his SUV
broken and $240 worth of
Fernandina Beach High School
Pirate discount cards stolen
from the center console.
According to the report, there
were several pry marks on the
side of the window frame.
A second burglary was
reported in Egans Bluff just
before 10 a.m. on the 2800 block
of Park Square Place. According
to the report, the victim said
$20 was stolen from the center
console of her unlocked vehi-
cle.
In both cases, no fingerprints
were found and no suspects
were identified.
Later the same day, two
more burglaries were reported

within three hours in the
Oyster Bay subdivision in
Fernandina Beach, both on the
96000 block of Light Wind

The first was reported just
after 1 p.m. when a victim
noticed a wallet valued at $150
and containing credit cards, a
driver's license, Social Security
card and $35 and a phone val-
ued at $200 were stolen from
his unlocked vehicle.
A second burglary was
reported on the same street just
before 4 p.m. According to the
report, a Blackberry phone and
sim card valued at $300 were


stolen from the owner's vehi-
cle, which also was unlocked. A
fingerprint check yielded three
latent prints, but the report said
there was no further informa-
tion about a possible suspect.
Finally, two more auto bur-
glaries were reported July 23
in the Heron Isles subdivision in
Yulee.
The first was reported short-
ly before noon on the 96000
block of Starlight Lane, where
$520 worth of items was stolen
from an unlocked vehicle.
Authorities did not recover any
physical evidence.
About two hours later anoth-
er victim reported items miss-

The report said the suspect


forced down a partially rolled
down window, then removed
items from the car.
Authorities were unable to
locate any witnesses or physical
evidence. According to the inci-
dent reports, all six cases are
deemed pending.
Squatters suspected
The Nassau County Sheriff's
Office investigated a burglary at
Oak Hill Campground on US 1
in Hilliard just before 10 p.m.
July 19 after a neighbor report-
ed an open door at a nearby
dwelling that was unoccupied,
according to an incident report.
The owner, a resident of
North Carolina, told authorities
she had not been in the home


since April and that it was
secured when she left.
According to the report, the
home appeared to have been
lived in for some time as beds
were unmade and items were
strewn about, including numer-
ous beer bottles and cigarettes.
According to the owner, there
were never cigarettes or beer in
the residence. A doorknob was
broken off an exterior door lead-
ing to the kitchen and the front
door was unlocked with no dam-
age, according to the report. A
door leading to the detached
garage was also destroyed and
the thermostat cover was off
and interior parts damaged.
The owner told the deputy
by phone there were no items of
value in the home and said it
sounded like nothing was miss-
ing.
Horse killed
A Hilliard man struck and
killed a horse while driving
early July 27 in Callahan,
according to a report from the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office.
Randall Travis Langley, 45,
23191 CR 121, was traveling

+ Allstars play in state tourney, host region


The Fernandina Beach Babe Ruth 14-and-under
Allstars competed in the 2009 North Florida State
Tournament in Altamonte Springs July 17-18.
Fernandina was defeated in the opener by the even-
tual tournament champion, Tallahassee Leon.
Fernandina faced District 5 champion Ponte
Vedra in the second game, which was halted twice
due to lengthy rain delays.
Following the first delay, Ponte Vedra jumped out
to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning.
Fernandina responded with a run in the top half of
the third when Josh Didion doubled, driving in Jake
Withers, who had reached on a walk.
The score would remain 3-1 until Ponte Vedra
added two runs in the bottom of the fifth to extend
its lead to 5-1. Fernandina answered in the top of the
sixth, taking advantage of a walk and two Ponte


Vedra errors to score four runs on three hits.
With the game tied at 5-5, Fernandina mounted
a two-out threat in the top of the seventh with run-
ners at first and third after Mason Mottayaw and
Cole Kirkland reached on singles. Fernandina's
momentum was halted by the second rain delay,
which lasted an hour and a half.
Following the second delay, Ponte Vedra was
able to record the final out of the inning without
allowing any runs. In the bottom half of the seventh
inning, Ponte Vedra loaded the bases on two walks
and a hit batter. With no outs, Nathan Rokosz deliv-
ered a single that plated the winning run to defeat
Fernandina 6-5.
Withers had a strong pitching performance for
Fernandina. He went six-plus innings and struck out
six batters while walking just two.


Offensively, Fernandina was led by Withers (two
singles) and Didion (pair of doubles) with two hits
apiece. Mack Casey, Josh Pipkin, Bailey Weeks,
Trey Burch, Austin Jones, Mottayaw and Kirkland
contributed with one hit each.
Fernandina played a solid game defensively with
just two errors in the field.
The 14-and-under Allstars host the Southeast
RegionalTournament beginning today with afun day
and opening ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Games begin at
10 a.m. Thursday.

B SECTION


Have eight title-less years


taken the edge offSpurrier?


T he debate continues as to whether
or not South Carolina head coach
Steve Spurrier intentionally left
Florida QB Tim Tebow off his pre-
season All-SEC first team ballot. The 01' Ball
Coach sounded genuine and sincere at last
week's SEC Media Days when he admitted
that Jamie Speronis, South Carolina's director
of football operations, filled out his ballot and
omitted Tebow.
But there are still those who believe the
01' Ball Coach fully intended to stick it to his
old team before realizing the media storm his
actions incited and backtracking. Given his
serious demeanor, I tend to believe Spurrier.
In the past, a typical media session with the
coach would have entailed a couple of wise-
cracks and double the smirks.
But I can't remember ever seeing the guy
so solemn as he was last Friday. The scene
almost made you wish he had admitted leav-
ing Tebow off on purpose, just to bring back
the old Spurrier, brash and arrogant. But
those days seem to be gone. I guess eight
years without sniffing a title after experienc-
ing so much early success can humble even
the most brazen ...
Speaking of screw-ups, Tennessee fans
flooded my inbox after I incorrectly predicted
in last week's column that it was Vols head
coach Lane Kiffin who left Tebow off the first
team.
One fan wrote, "Sir, I was just wondering if
you have apologized to Coach Kiffin ... in
light of this week's revelation that Spurrier
was the one who voted for Snead rather than
Tebow?"
Taking that advice, here goes:
I'm sorry. I'm extremely sorry. I was hop-
ing for a year in which I made no incorrect
predictions. That was my goal, something
that's never been done around here. But I
promise you a lot of good will come out of
this. You will never see another columnist in
the entire country ... scratch that. I think I'll


just go with the following
statement prepared by my
publicist:
I've been made aware by
Tennessee fans that my
comments in last week's col-
umn violated Lane Kiffin's
feelings. In my enthusiasm
for writing, I made a state-
ment that was meant solely
to excite those reading the
SPORTS column.
I apologize to Lane, his
TALK daddy, Smokey and I guess
Ed Orgeron. My comments
JOHN L. were not intended to offend
CRAWFORD anyone at the University of
Tennessee ...
Extracting tongue from
cheek ...
Maybe the most disturbing revelation that
came out of Tebowgate" might be Spurrier's
admission that he never completes his own
preseason all-conference ballot.
"Well, I guess I've been doing the presea-
son ballots for 17 years," Spurrier told
reporters. "I've never filled one out. But I usu-
ally look at it. I did glance at the one this year,
but I didn't glance very thoroughly."
Which begs the question, who fills out
Spurrier's USA Today Coaches Poll ballot?
And when they're finished each week, how
thoroughly does Spurrier check it over?
Seriously, could the BCS, which decides who
plays for a national championship each year,
be made up of computers, Harris Poll voters
and the opinions of various directors of foot-
ball operations?
The three words that immediately come to
mind are, "lack of integrity." Yet another rea-
son to do away with the BCS, as if we needed
one.

Wednesday. E-mail questions or comments to

FHSAA


restores


cut sports


for high


schools

BETH JONES
News-Leader

High school schedules will not
be reduced the upcoming school
year.
The Florida High School Ath-
letic Association voted 15-0 July 15
to rescind amendments to a new
policy, which cut varsity games by
20 percent and others by 40 per-
cent through the 2010-11 school
year.
The policy, adopted to cut games
and help districts cope with their
economic woes, was shot down by
the FHSAA board of directors to
avoid a lawsuit filed by a group of
parents in Jacksonville in June.
The parents alleged the sched-
ule cuts violate Title IX, the federal
law requiring a balance of sports
for boys and girls.
The cost of the legal battle would
have trickled down to the member
schools of the FHSAA, which
declined to pass on the expense of
a challenge to its members.
"There's an old saying that says
the juice is not worth the squeeze,"
FHSAA executive director Roger
Dearing said.
The news was good for Fernan-
dina Beach High School boys bas-
ketball coach Matt Schreiber, who
has already scheduled games with
Providence, "which is the best team
probably in Northeast Florida," he
said.
"For us, it gives us a chance to
add teams to the schedule that we
might not have been able to play. So,
we've already been able to add a
couple of games."
"We're happy to have those
games added back," Schreiber said.
"I think all -ii l.I . , -., ll be happy to
have the games added back.
"It's always more fun to play
games than practice. You're going
to do one of the two when you can."
The cuts would have reduced
varsity schedules by 20 percent and
junior varsity and freshman sched-
ules by 40 percent for all sports
except football and competitive
cheerleading.
"I really never understood why
they would pick one sport and not
another one," Schreiber said.
"There were many sports that pro-
duced revenue that they cut back.
"For the individual athlete, it is
good, and that's what it's really all
about."

SThe Buick Open has been an off-
and-on tournament on the PGA
Tour since 1958. The inaugural
event took place in 1958 as the
Buick Open Invitational with Billy
Casper defeating Arnold Palmer


by one stroke. There was no tournament from 1970 through 1976 as the
event was in a state of flux. Once the tournament resumed in 1977, it was
played at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club. The 17th hole at Warwick, a par
3, is known for having one of the rowdiest galleries in professional golf. Fans
often create chants directed at particular golfers, making it a fun place to
watch the tournament. Last year, Kenny Perry, a little over a month shy of his
48th birthday, won the Buick Open, his second win in four starts.

_ As of press time, Jason Dufner, *Leaders After 3 Rounds
Anthony Kim and Retief T-lst: J. Dufner, A. Kim & R.Goosen
Goosen have a one-stroke Score: -15

Green at the end of the third 7th: Scott Verplank
round of the RBC Canadian Score: -13
Open. The third round was suspended on Sunday after light-
ning forced players off the course at 10:15 a.m. The third round
resumed Monday morning and the water-logged tournament
may even spill over into Tuesday. Mike Weir will begin the fourth round on
Monday six shots behind Dufner, Kim and Goosen with 18 holes left to try
and become the first Canadian champion at the event since 1954.


SWith most of us in the work force, it is
difficult to have the time to put into
practice what is necessary to raise
ourgame a level or two. However, it is
this practice that will improve our con-
sistency in the long term and we can
i Practice different approaches even at
home to make progress. One of the best ways is to
use your mirror at home to check on your set up, grip,
ball position, alignment and posture. Another method
to consistency is to have the same routine before
every shot. We watch the professionals and every
time, they go through the same set of motions before
a shot. This practice should be followed by the ama-
teur golfer as well to improve our comfort level. Finally,
we can not swing one club harder or softer than the
others. Practice keeping the same tempo for all the
clubs in the bag and the results will be positive.


The Buick Open will be played for the 45th and final time this week because of the
financial problems plaguing General Motors, GolfWeek magazine reported. Tom
Pernice Jr., a member of the Tour's Player Advisory Council, and a second, ' --
unnamed source, said the Tour planned to formally announce a new sponsor and - S-
venue the week after the tournament is played. Pernice said he could not identify the
new sponsor, but confirmed that this week's Buick Open will be the last. "Buick doesn't
have the finances; GM can't afford it," Pernice said. "From a perception standpoint, you can't lay off
all those people and then sponsor a golf tournament." The Buick Open is one of two PGA Tour events
sponsored by the automaker. The other is the Buick Invitational, which is played in February near San
Diego. The sponsorship contracts for both tournaments run through 2010, Golfweek reported.

'4/0,''Breetender' top Jacksonville Kingfish tourney


Junior anglers aboard
Steve Pickett's "4/0" kingfish
boat stole the show during
the recent AT&T BellSouth
Greater Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament. Junior anglers
included Charlie Palmer,
Colby LeSage, Carter Pickett
and Spencer LeSage, who
weighed in a 37.40-pound
king mackerel. Also fishing
aboard the 4/0 kingfish boat
were
William
LeSage,
Walker
Palmer and
Steve Pickett
Jr.
The
Fernandina
Beach based
OUTDOORS kingfish
team began
Tedy o its morning
Terry acoss by slow
trolling a variety of kingfish
baits in a deep slough located
offshore of the south end of
Amelia Island. Spencer
LeSage's big fish struck a rib-
bonfish around 9 a.m. and
took some 20 minutes to land.
First prize in the junior angler
tournament included a fully
outfitted, 15-foot Carolina
Skiff, powered by a Mercury
outboard engine and loaded
on a Loadmaster boat trailer.
Charlie Palmer also finished
in 22nd spot with his 21.65-
pound kingfish.
Other junior anglers who
finished in the top 50 places
from Fernandina Beach were
Kaylee Croft, seventh place
with a 28.15-pound kingfish;
and Julia Lacoss, 18th with a
22.10-pound king mackerel.
Some 174 junior anglers
weighed in kingfish; there
were more than 300 entries in
the junior angler tournament
that took place July 21.
Capt. Greg Simmons and
James Cason of Fernandina
Beach teamed up with Shawn
Ballard of Jacksonville and
David Albin of St. Augustine
to top all competitors in the
aggregate division of the gen-
eral tournament.
"We trolled for kingfish in
100 feet of water, adjusting
our downrigger live baits to a
depth of 95 feet," Simmons
said. "Our live baits included
goggle eyes that proved to be
our winning kingfish tactic for
both days of the tournament.
"During the first day of the
event we weighed in a 28.2-
pound king mackerel while a
38.35-pound kingfish that
took a deep live goggle eye
during the last day of the
tournament was our ticket to
winning first-place honors in

Team Breetender members, from left, James Cason, Greg Simmons and Shawn Ballard topped all teams in the aggregate division with a two-fish
weight of 66.55 pounds, left. Not pictured: David Albin. Right, the Fernandina Beach based kingfish team "Sotally Tober" placed 19th in the

the aggregate division."
The "Breetender" kingfish
team won a fully rigged 218
Elite Carolina Skiff, 115 hp
Mercury outboard and a
Loadmaster boat trailer. Their
aggregate weight tallied 66.55
pounds for their two king
mackerel.
Jacksonville's Robert
Bishop captained the "Fish
Buster" kingfish team to top
honors in the 23 feet and
under class with a two-fish
aggregate weight of 61.15
pounds.
Benjamin Hinson caught
the largest kingfish of the
tournament while fishing


aboard the kingfish boat,
"Badsport." Their winning
king mackerel weighed 42.85
pounds. Team "Badsport"
took home a 20-foot Key West
fishing boat, Loadmaster boat
trailer and 150 hp Yamaha
outboard.
Dawn Stevenson captained
her "Sotally Tober" kingfish
team, including Brian Rowe,
Eric Fulk, Ellen Ellerker and
Aaron Coulter, to 19th place
in the largest kingfish catego-
ry with a 39.75-pound king
mackerel.
"We fished off the Georgia
coast during the first day of
the tournament and got beat


up pretty bad during the long
boat ride," Stevenson said.
"We also came up empty-
handed. During the second
day of the tournament, we
kingfished close to home at
FA reef and managed to land
our big king while trolling
double pogy kingfish rigs."
The double pogy kingfish
rig begins with a single No. 1
live bait hook haywire
wrapped to the tag end of a
three-foot section of 32-pound
coffee-colored piano wire. An
eight-inch length of 43-pound
coffee-colored piano wire is
then haywire wrapped to the
eye of the live bait hook.


Next, a second No. 1 live bait
hook is haywire wrapped the
tag end of 43-pound piano
wire. Finally, a short length of
43-pound stinger wire is hay-
wire wrapped to the eye of
the second hook and a No. 4-
4X treble hook is haywire
wrapped to the tag end of the
"Stinger" wire. The length of
the stinger wire is adjusted so
the stinger hook lies along-
side of the live pogy, just
behind the dorsal fin.
Select a large, strong pogy
for the first hook and hook
the pogy right through both
nostrils. A second and smaller
pogy is then hooked through


both nostrils with the second
live bait hook. The double
pogy rig is typically trolled
from aT-top "shotgun" rod
holder on the surface with a
drop back distance from 50-80
feet.
"I have more tournament
winning teams report their
big fish was caught with a
double pogy kingfish rig than
any other type of live bait sys-
tem," said Jack Holmes, gen-
eral manager of the Southern
Kingfish Association.
Congratulations to all of
the winners who competed in
the world's largest kingfish
tournament.

Anglers need license
Florida's resident saltwater
anglers who fish from shore


or a structure affixed to shore
will need to buy a $7.50 (plus
administrative and handling
fees) shoreline fishing license
by Aug. 1, unless they have a
regular resident saltwater
fishing license.
The new license applies
only to Florida resident salt-
water anglers who fish from
shore. Resident anglers may
prefer to purchase the regular
recreational saltwater license
that covers them, no matter
where they fish for saltwater
species in Florida. Florida has
always required non-residents
to have a license when fishing
from shore, and they will still
need to purchase a regular
non-resident saltwater fishing
license.
It provides all of the same
exemptions as a regular
license, including senior citi-
zens, children, disabled peo-
ple who meet certain qualifi-
cations, active-duty military


personnel while home on
leave and anglers who fish
from a licensed pier. In addi-
tion, the shoreline license
requirement includes two
new exemptions: anglers
drawing food stamps, tempo-
rary cash assistance or
Medicaid; and anglers fishing
in their home counties who
use cane poles or other gear
that does not depend on
mechanical retrieval.
At the request of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
the Florida Legislature
passed the new license
requirement to head off a fed-
eral 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 organiza-
tions 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 manage-
ment area permit for hunting,
fishing and other recreational
uses from $25 to $30; the lim-
ited-entry or special-opportu-
nity 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 permit (in addi-
tion 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.

Banners show family's service


COLETTE BEECH
American Legion
Auxiliary Unit54

Blue Star Banners, you
have probably seen them
before and wondered about
the meaning. A Blue Star
Service Banner displayed in
the window of a home is an
American tradition. The ban-
ner lets others know that
someone in the home is
proudly serving in the U.S.
armed forces.
These banners first
became a way for households
to indicate they have family
members in the service in
1917. World War I Army Capt.
Robert L Queissner designed
this symbol in honor of his
two sons who were serving
on the front line. It quickly
became traditional for a gold
star to represent a soldier who
had died serving his country.
Theodore Roosevelt's family
had a banner with a gold star
in honor of their son who was
shot down over France in
1918.
The stars are placed on a
white background with a red
border. If a family has more
than one person in the armed
service the stars are put one
below the next on the banner.
When a soldier dies in action
the blue star is replaced with
a gold star.
As Americans do their best
to support Operation Iraqi
Freedom and the ongoing war
on terror, the Blue Star
Service Banner tradition
reminds us all that war touch-
es every neighborhood in our
land.
According to the American
Legion website:
* On Sept. 24, 1917, an
Ohio congressman read the
following into the
Congressional Record: "The


mayor of Cleveland, the
Chamber of Commerce and
the governor of Ohio have
adopted this service flag. The
world should know of those
who give so much for liberty.
The dearest thing in all the
world to a father and mother -
their children."
* During World War II, the
Department of War issued
specifications on the manu-
facture of the flag, as well as
guidelines indicating when
and by whom the service flag
could be flown, or the service
lapel button could be worn.
The Department of Defense
updated the guidelines on
Dec. 1, 1967 with a directive
that implemented an Act of
Congress authorizing a serv-
ice flag and a service lapel but-
ton (U.S.C. 179-182).
* The Blue Star Service
Banner typically displayed in
windows is an 8.5- by 14-inch
white field with a blue stars)
sewn onto a red banner. The
size may vary but should be in
proportion to the size of the
U.S. flag.
* Today Blue Star Service
Banners are displayed by fam-
ilies who have a loved one
serving in the armed forces,
including the National Guard
and Reserves of all military
departments. The banner dis-
played in the front window of


a home shows a family's pride
in their loved one serving in
the military and reminds oth-
ers that preserving America's
freedom demands much.
* The blue star represents
one family member serving
in the armed forces. A banner
can have up to five stars, sig-
nifying that five members of
that family are currently in
military uniform on active
duty.
* If the individual symbol-
ized is killed or dies while
serving, the star representing
that individual will have super-
imposed on it a gold star of
smaller size so that the blue
forms a border. On flags dis-
playing multiple stars, includ-
ing gold stars, when the flags
are suspended as against a
wall, the gold stars) will be to
the right of, or above the blue
starss, a place of honor near-
est the staff.
* Blue Star Mothers and
Gold Star Mothers organiza-
tions were established during
World War I and remain active
today.
* Blue Star Service
Banners, while widely used
across America during World
Wars I and II, were not
embraced during the Korean
or Vietnam wars with nearly
the same enthusiasm.
* The American Legion is
rekindling the spirit of pride
in our military men and
women following the horrific
terrorist attacks of September
11, 2001.
The American Legion
Auxiliary Unit 54, in
Fernandina, is providing the
Blue Star Banners to families
in the community with mem-
bers currently serving in the
military on active duty.
Contact Colette Beech at 556-
1848 for more information on
receiving a Blue Star Banner.
