Bear captured in Georgia


SCommunity Newspapers
Black bear that roamedAmelia Island for near-
ly two *weeks gwas tranquilized and captured in
Georgia on Saturday.
A spokesperson for the Florida Wildlife Service
confirmed itwas the same bear. Karen Parker said
Georgia wildlife officials said the bear was in a res-
idential neighborhood and entered a garage in St.
Marys, Ga. The bear was relocated a short dis-
tance away in Georgia, she said.
St. Marys, Ga., resident Jessica Gabbard said
Sunday the bear was captured in a garage at


Sugarmill Plantation; a residential community there.
"'I watched as it came through neighborhoods
and eided up in a lady's garage," Gabbard wrote in
an e-mail.
Molly Noble was that lady. She said the bear
rummaged around in her garage and she sum-
moned Camden County deputies, who then brought
in officials from the Georgia Department of Natural
Resources. One of them shot the bear with a tran-
quilizer dart.
SThe bear was sighted about 1 p.m. Friday swim-
ming to Tiger Island, just off Amelia Island. It could
easily sw im from there to the Georgia mainland at


St. Marys.
Capt. Willie Sweat of the Amelia River
Excursions' Cumberlanid Sound ferry, the Bald
Eagle, said he saw the bear swimming in the Amelia
River.
"I was coming across Quarantine Point, just
across from the pogy plant," he said. "He was about
10 yards out in the water there, swimming toward
Tiger Island. We watched him come out of the
water and into the woods.
"He looked like he was healthy and spry," Sweatt

A 2-year-old girl who attends a
Fernandina Beach daycare center has
contracted swine flu, according to the
Nassau County Health Department.
Two other children are also suspected
to have the illness, also known as the
HINI virus.
While local health officials would
not release the name of the center, cit-
ing confidentiality rules, the pastors
of Memorial Methodist Church, 601
Centre St., confirmed that the case
was reported at the church's Lamb
Christian Preschool and Daycare.

Swine flu ad childcare
The Nassau County Health Department and federal Centers for
Disease Control issued the following guidelines for preventing
swine flu in childcare.facilities:
* Childcare providers should conduct daily health checks on all
children. For information on conducting health checks, visit
http://nrckids.org and see "Caring for Our Children, Standards
3.001 and 3.002." ,. ,; ; ,
* III children should stay home and not be taken out of one child
care program and put into another, even temporarily, as Ihis may
:spread the illness.
* Childcare facilities should clean and sanitize frequently
touched surfaces - desks, doorknobs, computer keyboards, toys -
routinely and if they become visibly soiled. Influenza may remain
viable for several hours on surfaces and can spread to others by
.touching unclean surfaces.
Closure of childcare programs due to swine flu is not currently
recommended. Childcare programs should follow the CDC recom-
mendations for schools and childcare facilities along with the other
recommendations on the CDC website,
www.cdc.gov/H1Nlflu/k12_dismissal.htm#childcare.

Swine flu? Maybe,


but maybe not


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader


A case of suspected swine
flu at the Nassau County
Judicial Annex will never be
confirmed.
Assistant State Attorney
Wesley White experienced flu-
like symptoms July 22 and
went to the hospital for test-
ing.
"What they told me at the
hospital was that swine flu is a
sub-type of Influenza-A, and 96
percent of people who test pos-
itive for Influenza-A have swine
flu," he said Friday. "But based
on the prevalence and the high
percentage, they weren't test-
ing specifically for swine flu.
So we'll never know for sure. I
can tell you this - I've had the
flu before, and I've never, ever
felt anything like this. It's the
worst I've felt in 30 years."
White said he recovered at
home. He's back at work now.
"I feel great, actually," he
said. "I went back to work on
(July 29). I felt a little bit
fatigued, but I feel fine now."
Also still unconfirmed as
swine flu are the .symptoms
experienced by eight Bank of
America employees in mid-
July. The bank's branch on
Eighth Street in Fernandina
Beach closed July 14 when the
employees became ill.
Nassau County Public
Health Manager Kim Geib
said Thursday that none of the
afflicted employees chose to
get tested for the virus.
There have been eight con-
firmed cases of swine flu in
Nassau County, according to
the county health department.
All of the ill have recovered or
are recovering.
Geib said it is important for
people to take preventive
measures against the illness.
"As time goes by, it's very
likely that we're going to see
clusters, especially as school
starts," she said. "We are still

communities and pow i4i the
daycare facilities/' she said. "For
parents who have ill children,
we're recommending not to
transfer their child to another
facility because that could
spread the illness.
"Childcare providers,
because of what's going on,
should be conducting daily
health checks on their chil-
dren," she added.
There have been eight con-
firmed cases of swine flu in
Nassau County. The ill have
ranged in age from 2 to 37 years
old. None of the cases has been
fatal.

Based
upon his own
experience,
W h i t e
stressed that
flu-like symp-
toms should-
n't be taken


lightly.
"I think it's very important
that anybody who has symp-
toms of this flu see a doctor
as soon as possible," he said.
Preventing the spread of
swine flu and other influenza
viruses in the workplace is
basically a matter of common
sense and good hygiene. Here
are some tips from the Nassau
County Health Department
and the federal Centers for
Disease Control:
* Cover your cough.
Cough into your sleeve or a
tissue, not into your hand.
* Disinfect common sur-
faces like keyboards, tele-
phones, countertops; door-
knobs and bathroom fixtures.
Use a disinfectant that is
labeled as effective against
influenza viruses.
* Wash hands often, espe-
cially after coughing or sneez-
ing. Alcohol-based hand sani-
tizers can be used if soap and
water are not available.
* Stay home if you're sick.
The CDC recommends
employees with flu-like ill-
nesses stay home for seven
days after symptoms begin or
until 24 hours after symptoms
end, whichever is longer.,

tenance program, which in
turn gives a better product to
taxpayers - it's all about
stretching tax dollars while not
compromising services or
safety."
According to figures pro-
vided by the Nassau County
Office of Management and
Budget, the proposed county
fire rescue budget for 2009-10
is $11.2 million, a 4.2 percent
decrease from the 2008-9 orig-
inal budget, including a 12.6
percent decrease in operating
costs. Cooper said additional
cuts have been made that will
reflect a 10 percent decrease in
the total budget when it goes
before the county for approval
in September, including
reduced overtime in the fire
prevention bureau.
But Cooper said trimming
the budget would not translate
to a reduction of human
resources.
"We realize manpower is
important and we will continue
to bring more resources in,"
he said, noting that the depart-
ment is not under a hiring
freeze if a position opens up.
S "(lhe department's) proac-
tive training and the use of vol-
unteers and reserve firefight-
ers allows for more free
manpower," Cooper said. "Re-
cent graduates of fire school
can be put on reserve where
they keep up with training and
gain valuable experience that
makes, them qualified, trained
firefighters when permanent,
paid positions open up."
Nassau County Fire Rescue
also has benefited from an
AutoPulse grant from the state
Department of Health for
$82,256 (25 percent of which is
to be paid by the county) that
will increase levels of service
while freeing up manpower.
The AutoPulse is an auto-
matic band that wraps around
a patient's chest and provides
consistent compression, said
Assistant Chief Sam Young. As

a result, transport will require
only two medics and one per-
son driving in cardiac life sup-
port scenarios, he said.
Hanes said city fire rescue,
at roughly one-third the size
of the county in terms of man-
power, is lagging in modern
equipment, but stressed serv-
ice levels remain high.
"We're making every effort
to continue the current level
of service with less money,"
he said. "But there is common
technology throughout the
industry we do without."
Hanes cited a lack of conm-
munications equipment such
as computers that produce
medical reports in the field that
he said are as vital to the
department as they are to hos-
pitals in patient care and pro-
viding statistical data for the
state.
"We have one such com-
puter in the field right now,
whereas most fire departments
have them on every vehicle,"
he said. 'They aren't a luxury,
they're a necessity - it's 1990's
technology we are doing with-
out."
Hanes said the computers
are used to capture timely and
accurate reports, but added
this does not represent a defi-
ciency. He said it takes more
time to fill out reports and it's
simply an example of doing
more with less.
Hanes also said most nor-
mally scheduled equipment
replacement would be
deferred, with a focus on main-

tenance and conservation.
"The community is very
well protected and we're oper-
ating efficiently with safe equip-
ment," he said. "But we can't
keep deferring costs; we must
look closely at decisions made
and feel comfortable with the
deferments. Anything post-
poned or deferred, I'm com-
fortable with, but there are
things that need to be
addressed down the road."
And though the current
proposed budget for. 2009-10
is $3.6 million, an increase of
13.2 percent from 2008-9,
according to figures provided
by the city's Office of Finance,
the proposed operating budg-
et, which covers equipment
costs among other things, is
down 4 percent. And Hanes
said while the' goal is still to
come in under last year's budg-
et, that might be unrealistic.
"There are still very sharp
axes to be taken to the 2009-10
budget," he said. "The story is
yet to be told, but we'll have a
better idea in September when
the budget is approved."
Hanes also said his depart-
ment has applied for two
grants. One is for fire station
modifications and the other for
backup generators, both
applied for through the Depart-
ment of Homeland Security.
And though the department
.is on a hiring freeze he said
there are some openings under
review.
"I'm going to ask that they
be filled," he said. "But it's up
to me to present the case, and
up to the city manager and the
commission to approve."

added. "He just bounded into
the trees."
Georgia resident Allan
Chester said he saw the bear
haul itself out of the St. Mar's
River and onto the marsh east
of Point Peter about 5:15 p.mi.
Friday. It was seen Friday night
in two St. Marys subdivisions.
The bear was seen Saturdry
afternoon crossing Charlie
Smith Sr. Highway and then i
the Sugarmill subdivision.
EdWVan Otteren, a wildlife
technician with the Georga
Department of Natural Resotr-,
ces, responded late Saturday
afternoon after the bear was
found rummaging inside
Nobel's garage.
With the main garage door
closed, Van Otteren and two o-
workers set a trap in front of
the bear's only escape route-
an open side door. With the
bear facing the trap, Van
Otteren had his perfect shot.
Seven to 10 minutes later, the
bear was sleeping peace-
fully inside the trap, a large
metal cylinder strapped to a
trailer.
The bear had roamed
Amelia Island since at least J6ly
21, spending much of its timeat
Fort Clinch State Park but also
moving along Egans Creek
Greenway to the south side of
the island.
The bear was relocated frdm
Palm Beach County to the
Osceola Wildlife Management
Area in Baker and Columbia
counties in late June.
From there the young male
bear made his way to Amelia
Island.

BUSINESS


Good news? Better not bank on it


this is another of those
good news/bad news dichoto-
mlies.
With so much bad news of
late, let's start with the good
news. A major government
agency is opening a satellite
office in Jacksonville and will
hire up to 500 workers, with
lucrative salaries ranging from
860,000 to $140,000. The posi-
tions will be temporary by most
definitions, depending upon the
workload.
The bad news is that the
agency is the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp., known more,
commonly as FDIC. This is the
government department that
seizes and liquidates banks
when they go bad - and trans-
fers the insured assets to
healthier institutions.
The FDIC is both the mor-
tician and the undertaker when
it comes to faltering financial
institutions. It has been some-
what busy this year, taking over
32 banks in the U.S. thus far. In
2008, 25 banks failed. Only
three banks failed in 2007.
Customers normally see a


seamless
transition.
The targeted
bank closes
on Friday
: under qne
Same, and
reopens on
.... Monday
under anoth-
STEVE'S er name. The
MARKET PDIC in-
PLACE sures depo-
sits per
account (in
Steve Nicklas federally
chartered


banks) up to $250,000 - higher
than the $100,000 limit of prior,
less-problematic years.
The location of the FDIC
office is a reason for some con-
cern. There have been reports
in local newspapers about the
sub-par health of some banks in
the Jacksonville area, as well
as around Florida. Many banks
have been left holding the debts
of residential and commercial
properties financed during the
real estate boom.
This is not a commentary


on or indictment of any partic-
ular bank. Most banks in
Nassau County have apparent-
ly fared decently navigating the
difficult markets of the past two
years, for instance.
There are several advan-
tages to the Jacksonville loca-
tion, with a conveniently locat-
ed airport for travel to other
banks, as well as affordable.
office space. The new office will
reportedly occupy the old
CitiBank and Universal Card
buildings in a Baymeadows
business park. The office will
service the east coast of the
U.S.
However, you do not locate
an office of this nature in the
Mojave Desert, although the
real estate is also cheap there;
you place it close to the root of
a problem. The real estate mar-
ket in Florida has declined by
40 percent in value in some
places and has been battered by
foreclosures and delinquencies.
Of the 32 bank closures this
year, six have been in Georgia
and two in Florida. Six addi-
tional banks in these two states


FDIC satellite offices are typically located
near concentrations ofbank failures.
The local FDIC office is expected to
remain open for the next 3-5years.


were seized in the second half
of 2008. Jacksonville-area banks
reportedly have a higher level
of delinquent loans than in
other parts of the U.S., and
.exceed the levels of banks in
Tampa, Orlando and Miami (as
of first quarter results).
The FDIC has typically used
satellite offices to position itself
near concentrations of bank fail-
ures. As the workload dimin-
ishes, the temporary offices are
closed. FDIC workers will grad-
ually begin to move here in
mid-September.
Some experts conclude that
the increased staffing of FDIC
offices means more-banks will
fail in the coming year. A fur-
ther drop in house prices and
increase in credit losses could

lead to this development.
FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair
has said the U.S. banking sys-
tem is improving - emerging
from the depths of the credit
crisis - although there will be a
"steady pace" of bank failures.
The local FDIC office is expect-
ed to remain open for the next
three to five years.
Hopefully, the office will not
be needed for too long, as the
U.S. economy and the real
.estate markets appear to be bot-
toming. These are jobs the area
will gladly give away to anoth-
er area.

Loaded for bear


Nothing like a wild,
roaming black bear
to motivate my dawn
hiking jaunts. Ever
since I've heard that a bear
has been spotted on Amelia
Island I've been aching to see
it. But bear hunting is not that
easy, as I've learned.
My inbox and phone mes-
sages had been full of bear
sightings from those fortu-
nate folks at the right place at
the right time all up and down
the island. Once it seemed
clear that the bear was linger-
ing in Fort Clinch State Park I
knew what I had to do. Spend
more time in the park!
So, for a number of days in
a row I hopped out of bed pre-
dawn and headed to Fort
Clinch. Each of my days start-
ed with a glorious sunrise
over the ocean, none the
same, always breathtaking.
One morning I encountered
Sandra Baker-Hinton excavat-
ing an overdue turtle nest and

releasing

to the sea
amid groups
of fascinated
observers.
Another
morning as I
walked the
beach I
watched the
Navy vessels
lining up to
guide a sub-
marine into


port at Kings Bay, Ga., always
a treat. Most days I also saw
fishing osprey, gliding peli-
cans, frolicking dolphins, live
sand dollars and sea stars and
all manner of other wonderful
things along my walks. But no
bear.
One morning at Fort
Clinch I got tantalizingly close
to the bear. As I walked
towards the fort I was


stopped by other dawn
strollers who told me the
news. A fellow near the fort
had just spent 10 minutes
watching the bear! I walked
up the beach to the spot as
quickly as I could, only to find
no man, no bear, but lots of
bear tracks.
Walking back to my car
that morning, along an interi-
or park road I saw more signs
of bear. Palm-sized plops with
berries still intact marked the
road. I've walked that road
many times and never seen
droppings like this here
before. Raccoons have a simi-
lar diet, but don't normally
decorate the roads. This ani-
mal did. At least we know the
bear is eating.
Arriving home to check
my email, I found that natural-
ist Carl Watson was the per-
son who watched the bear for
10 minutes that morning. He
too went out especially
"loaded for bear." He correct-
ly inferred from previous
day's bear sightings that the
bear would be in the area
near the fort. He sat on a
bench quietly and the bear
appeared. He was able to
watch the bear for 10 minutes
until the other beach walkers
I met spooked the bear into
the woods. Lucky devil!
The next dawn, ever more
determined to bag by own
bear sighting, I again walked
through the park at dawn,
through the campgrounds,
down the beach, into the
woods, for two hours. Not
even any signs of bear this
time.
Finally, tired and discour-
aged, I got in my car, bear-
less again, and already plan-
ning the next day's bear hunt

PI'AT I.'OSTERTURLEY/FORTHE NEWS-LEADER
A visiting black bear crosses the main road in Fort Clinch State Park before melting
into the woods once again last week.


And then, there ahead of me
on the main road of Fort
Clinch, was the bear! Just as
others had reported, the bear
seemed uninterested in peo-
ple and just going about his
business.
The bear hesitated on the
road only briefly, but long
enough to afford me a couple
of photo shots from my open
car window, before he melted
into the woods, invisible
again.
Floating on euphoria after
"bagging" my bear, I headed
over to T-Ray's for breakfast.
While I was expounding on
my find, another patron
walked in with her own bear
photos taken moments before
mine, while she was also driv-
ing down the Fort Clinch


main road. Small world, isn't
it, here on Amelia Island!
It's a lucky thing I saw the
bear when I did. Our great
small world is wonderful for
people, but maybe just too
small for a bear. On July 29
park visitors reported seeing
a bear on the beach that
, jumped into the water and
swam towards Cumberland
Island, Ga. They watched
until the brown speck disap-
peared into the distance. .
There were also reports that
a bear was seen Friday swim-
ming in Cumberland Sound
toward Tiger Island.
Inexplicably, though, I also
heard of another bear seen
swimming off the Fort Clinch
beach on Friday, too.
Then there were reports


Monday that a bear had been
captured in St. Marys, Ga.
Our bear?
Who knows? It's a bit like
tracking Elvis, a swimming
Elvis at that! Who knows,
there may even be more than
one bear in our midst. Most
likely our bear sightings are
not yet over for the season.
Maybe there's still time for
you, too, to "bag" your own
bear on Amelia Island. And if
you do see a bear, please let
me know the time and place.
Just maybe together all of us
will finally get to the "bare"
facts!

County may raise court fees


RYAN SMITH
.News-Leader
The Nassau County Com-
mission will consider at its Aug.
10 meeting amending an ordi-
nance to allow the Clerk of
Court to double a court sur-
charge, from $15 to $30.
The surcharge applies to
non-criminal traffic infractions
and some criminal violations.
The commission will consider
the amendment at a 7 p.m. pub-
lic hearing at its chambers
inside the James S. Page
Governmental Complex on
Nassau Place in Yulee.


A state law that went into
effect in June allows the sur-
charge to be raised. Any rev-
enue raised by an increase
must be used to fund state
court facilities. It does not
go to into the clerk of court's
budget.
Clerk of Court John
Crawford said Thursday he
doesn't believe the increase is
necessary.
"With the initial $15 (sur-
charge), we're already carry-
ing a cash-forward amount of
$530,395," he said. "The coun-
ty has budgeted in the present
budget year $110,000, of which

they have only spent $15,587 -
thus bringing me to the opinion
that there's not an immediate
need to pass an additional
charge in view of the excess
funds in hand, especially con-
sidering the financial condition
of our citizens."
If the commission does
decide to raise the surcharge,
however, Crawford recom-
mended using the extra rev-
enue for improvements at the
Nassau County Judicial Annex
in Yulee.
"There's a third courtroom
out here on the third floor that's
just a, shell. Looking into the


future, we know one day that
we'll have an additional judge,
and we'll need to utilize that
courtroom," he said. "... I think
that in concert with Judge
(Robert) Foster, if the board
decided to pass an additional
surcharge, they should strong-
ly consider encumbering that
money to finish that courtroom
so we don't create any addi-
tional debt for taxpayers when
that day comes."
The Aug. 10 meeting is open
to the public, and citizens wish-
ing to speak for or against the
measure may do so.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Angela
Daughtry 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 "We Tip" program - 1-
800-78CRIME - also allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.
Manslaughter
charged
An 18-year-old Bryceville
man has been arrested for DUI
manslaughter and vehicular
homicide.
Jonathan Lee Benischeck,
13246 US 301, was arrested
July 29 and charged with driv-
ing under the influence man-
slaughter, vehicular man-
slaughter and driving while
license suspended or revoked
with death.
His vehicle ran off Roy
Booth Road at 11:35 p.m. Jan.
24 and overturned, partially
ejecting Brian Parsons, 20, of
Callahan, who died. Benis-
check lost control of his 1993
Chevrolet pickup truck as it
approached a curve in the road-
way just north of Rock Trail
about five miles south of
Callahan, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Bomb hoax
A suspected bomb discov-
ered at a local resort July 29
turned out to be a hoax, accord-
ing to the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office.
A loss-prevention officer
found a plastic box in his office
at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia
Island after it fell off the back of
a filing cabinet, police reported.
The officer said he flipped a
switch on top of the box, then
opened it and found a 9-volt
battery, which he disconnect-
ed. According to the report, he
took a photo of the box and


sent it to Tom Gagne, director
of security at The Ritz, who
later brought the box to Nassau
County Fire Rescue Station 20.
A fire lieutenant contacted
the sheriff's office, which
placed the box at the rear of
the station in a secluded spot.
According to the report,
deputies then contacted the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
bomb unit and several build-
ings in the area were evacuat-
ed for public safety and the area
around the fire station was cor-
doned off.
A robot was deployed and
fired a projectile at the box,
breaking it into several pieces.
A Jacksonville bomb unit offi-
cer informed deputies it was a
hoax bomb and did not have
the ability to detonate, accord-
ing to the report. The pieces of
the bomb were recovered and
turned over to the sheriff's
property office.
Death threat
Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies investigated a death
threat July 30 against a resi-
dent of Heron Oaks Court on
the south end of Amelia Island.
The resident told police he
received an e-mail July 28 about
8 p.m. informing him a family
member had been hired to kill
him for $50,000. The e-mail stat-
ed the resident had been
watched for a few days and had
been determined "innocent,"
but a "retirement fee" was
required to stop the killer.
The resident was instructed
to send an e-mail to set up a
date, time and location to meet,
where the resident would
receive photos and tapes of the
person who wanted him killed
in exchange for the fee.
The resident had already
contacted the FBI, according
to the report.
Marina vandalism
According to a city police
report, several "electrical ped-
als" were knocked down at the

Special Olympics



returns to Nassau


BETH JONES
News-Leader

When Special Olympics was
canceled this spring, John
McBrearty saw first-hand the
disappointment on the faces of
the athletes. He and his wife
attend a weekly scripture serv-
ice at Amelia Island Care
Center.
"The clients there are
almost all in wheelchairs and
the thing they look forward to
all year is the Special Olym-
pics," McBrearty said. "When I
heard last year that there
wouldn't be a Special Olympics,
they were really devastated and
so was I.
"I just couldn't see it hap-
pening again this year. So, I
said maybe I could help and
make it happen."
McBrearty, who was one of
the founders of the successful
Amelia Island Runners club, is
now the Nassau County coor-
dinator for Special Olympics
and he's already at work mak-
ing the games a reality this
year.
"What a lot of people don't
know is Special Olympics is a
lot more than just the track and
field event," he said. "It is a
wonderful celebration with all
the pomp and circumstance
and the athletes marching, the
torch run and all the winners
come up and stand on the podi-
um and receive their medals.
There's applause.
"'hey really love it. It's their
day to shine. They remember it
for weeks afterwards."
McBrearty replaces Bob
Hinton, who volunteered as the
county coordinator the last few
years but recently retired.
McBrearty called his first meet-
ing July 27.
"We had a good discussion
of how things stood with Bob
-Hinton and his.. team,"
McBrearty said. "It turns out,
like I did with the running club
when it first started out, I did
most everything myself. As we
got more people involved, I
could turn things over.
"We have a great thing to
work with. Bob Hinton did a
fabulous job. He also recruit-
ed people in the schools to do
an awful lot of the work. He
arranged for clubs' involve-
ment. They are all very good
participants."


And finding volunteers for
the event is never a problem.
"When we hold the event,
we have more volunteers than
we can use," McBrearty said.
"The only real challenge for me
... I want to put together a man-
agement team, start up some of
the new programs, maybe intro-
duce some'team sports, so we
can have a season."
But it's a lot of work,
McBrearty admits. There is a
lot of paper work, from records
to medical certificates for the
athletes.
"The main thing about
Special Olympics is the train-
ing," McBrearty said. "During
the training, you have to keep
records of how well they are
progressing. Before the event,
'you have to do divisioning,
based on their skill levels. For
each age group, there may be
four divisions.
"You have to have coaches
and they have to be trained.
You have to keep records and
submit complete records to the
state and have it accepted."
McBrearty is up to the task.
"It took me a while to decide
this was something I could han-
dle," he said. "I thought
* through it and talked to people
willing to help, and I think it's
something I can do. We are
already talking about adding
more stuff. I'm looking forward
to it and seeing what we can
do."
McBrearty said the county
bowling championships will be
held Sept. 4 ai& the track and
field events will take place again
next.February at Fernandina
Beach High School.
"It is a little daunting, getting
county games. Then you go to
area games. Traveling to state
games is really an onerous
. path. You have to have one vol-
unteer for every two athletes,"
McBrearty said.
"There are pages of forms to
fill out. Delegation. Volunteers.
They all have to have training
and background checks. There
is an awful lot to it, but we have
time to work on it"
McBrearty is happy with his
decision to take the reins in
Nassau County, but warns, "I'll
be looking f6r someone to take
over. I won't be around forever."

Olympics, call McBrearty at

Billboard says UTs * _<__



Kiffin still talking the talk


UN universityy of Tennessee head football
coach Lane Kiffin came off as a
poor man's Dr. Evil last week with
the unveiling of his brilliant idea to
place a billboard somewhere in Vlorida to
promote the Volunteers. What will be written
on the billboard is apparently top secret.
"Got to give you something.to look for-
ward to," Kiffin said, after which he reported-
ly raised a pinky to his mouth and chanted
"Mwahahahahaha."
Lane, you old rascal, you. Always coming
up with such neat ideas.
Seriously, though, what advantage does'
Kiffin really expect to gain by putting up a
billboard in the backyard of his biggest SEC
East rival? If the coach is looking for a
recruiting edge, a big sign along the highway
just doesn't seem like the way to go.
.Sure, billboards have been mainstays on
the interstates for decades to assist motorists
in deciding between things like hotels or RV
camps, barbecue restaurants or country buf-
fets, theme parks or water parks. But I'm not
sure that the majority of travelers along 1-95
or 1-75 in Florida often contemplate where
their kids will play college football more so
than they do how much four days at Disney
and three sets of mouse ears are going to
cost.
If anything, the billboard could serve to
liven up the can of worms Kiffin opened
against Florida when he falsely accused head
coach Urban Meyer of a recruiting violation
shortly after taking the Tennessee job. Not as
if the Gators needed any reminder of who
their opponent will be Sept. 19.
By the way, there has reportedly already
been a billboard raised in Atlanta to bolster
Tennessee ticket sales bearing the catch
phrase, "It's Time." That might be the most
intelligent statement from the Tennessee
camp since Kiffin took over. Because most
would agree that it is indeed time to witness
Tennessee try to walk the walk after so many
months of its coach talking the talk ...
When Florida QB Tim Tebow showed up
at the ESPY Awards a few weeks ago wearing
glasses, images of Superman's alter ego,
Clark Kent, came immediately to mind.


Turns out it wasn't an act or
a fashion statement. Tebow
really is near sighted but
chooses not to wear specta-
cles or contact lenses during
games. So there you have it,
a weakness. Wonder if it
affects his X-ray vision ...
Florida WR Riley Cooper
has report tedly still not let it
be kntmwn whether or not he
SPORTS will return to the Gators for
his senior year or focus on
TALK Major League Baseball with
the Texas Rangers, who
JOHN L. drafted him in the 25th
CRAWFORD round.
Some have speculated
Cooper might decide to sign
with the Rangers and play football for Florida.
But the longer he goes without making his
intentions known, the more it seems that he
might have already put the Gators in his
rearview mirror.
Wide receiver'is already considered
Florida's weak link with the departures of
Percy Harvin and Louis Murphy from last
year's BCS championship team. Having to
replace Cooper, who had, a penchant for com-
ing up with clutch plays in big games last sea-
son, will make an already unenviable task for
Meyer and company that much more diffi-
cult. Not to mention that it will undoubtedly
call for immediate production from freshman
Andre Debose, whom Meyer probably would
have rather eased into action. We will likely
see early on how accurate the Debose-Harvin
comparisons really were. Because Harvin,
fans will remember, hit the ground running at
Florida...
Final thought: Florida basketball coach
Billy Donovan is reportedly eyeing 18-year-
old Israeli point guard Nimrod Tishman as
the replacement for the departed Nick
Calathes. And you think opposing fans gave
Matt Walsh a hard time?

John L. Crawford's column appears
Wednesday. E-mail questions or comments to

Sailfish repeat

The McArthur Family YMCA Sailfish cap-
tured back-to-back titles July 25, winning by
more than 500 points in the 2009 YMCA of
Florida's First Coast Swimming Championships
at the Barco-Newton Family YMCA in Orange
Park.
The action started on a sizzling Friday after-
noon as the six-and-under and eight-and-under
swimmers hit the water. The smallest Sailfish
stood tall, reached for the wall and delivered a
200-point lead to their older teammates at the end
of the day.
Eight-and-under girls Ciera Wilcox and Taylor
Radcliffe dominated the field, setting three meet
records (100-yard individual medley and 25-yard
breaststroke for Wilcox and 25-yard freestyle
for Radcliffe) and finishing first and second,
r sI.l c. li\l., in the high-points awards for their
age group.
Eight-and-under boys Evan Crayton (25-yard
freestyle) and Jonah Braeger (100-yard individ-
ual medley) added their own meet records and
Crayton brought home the high points award for
the eight-and-under boys.

place finishes and meet
records.
The 10-and-under, 11-12, 13-
14 and senior swimmers took
the pool by storm the next day.
Determined to build their lead,
the Sailfish continued to turn in
personal bests and hard-fought
finishes across the board.
Maisie Gooch set a meet
record in the 10-and-under 50-
yard backstroke and brought
home the high-points runner-
up trophy. Not to be outdone by
their younger counterparts, the
10-and-under girls' freestyle
relay team (Lexie Sutton,
Lindsey DeLille, Faith Leipau,
and Gooch) outstroked the
competition and set another
meet record.
In 11-12 girls, Jasmine Duke
(50 freestyle) and Colette
Murphy (50 breastroke) set
meet records and Duke tied
with teammate Zoe Stein for
the 11-12 girls' high-point run-
ner-up award. Juan Cardenas,
13, turned in another strong
performance, setting a meet
record in the 200 individual
medley.
Ten Sailfish swimmers
placed in the top three in all of
their individual events. Jared
Smith, Stein, Katy Weaver and
Thomas Seidel ended the day
with three medals each, join-
ing record-setters Wilcox,
Radcliffe, Crayton, Gooch,
Duke and Cardenas.
Finishing the season irl
grand style, Sailfish swimmers
chalked up a total of 10 A times,
32 BB times and 48 B times.
"From the first swimmers
in the water to the last, each
member of the team compet-
ed with pride, honor and deter-
mination, giving their all to
bring victory to the McArthur
Family YMCA," Coach Mary
Donn Bowman said.
"It was indeed not only one
but two great days to be a
Sailfish. Of course, if you ask
any one of them, they will say
every day is a great day to be a
Sailfish."

Individual, team



wins for Johnson


Ion't know whether it was
the heat, the threat of rain or
players out of town, but the
last week in July saw a rela-
tively small turnout for the
blitz as 48 players came out
on Wednesday and 41- on
Friday.
On Wednesday play began
with clea" skies, but in the
middle of the round, Mother
Nature put on quite a display
of rolling thunder and light-
ning flashes and play was
halted for about 20 minutes.
Steve Johnson took individual
honors with a 75, good for
plus 7 points. Seven players
tied for second and third at
plus 5 - D.D. Miller (93),
Mitch Purvis (85), Tom
Roberts (80), Hydie Peterson
(75), Bob Sibley (85), Doug
Morris (90) and PW. Nobles
(82).
With Johnson (plus 7) and
Morris (plus 7) on the same
team their total was enough
to offset the minus 3 of Bob
Dorsey (85) and Dennis
Moorehead (84, even).to win
first place at plus 9.
Second place also had a
minus 3 by Walter Boyd (91),
but had three pluses with T.
Roberts( plus 5), Hydie
Peterson (plus 5) and Doug
Wolfe (89, plus 1) as the team
finished at plus 8.
Third place at plus 5 went
to Nobles (plus 5), Kenny
Pickett (82, plus 4), Sammy
Alvarez (80, minus 1) and
Gerald Wilder (86, minus 1).
D.D. Miller's plus 5 was
helped by the plus 4 of Paul
Hensler (85) and it was good
enough to overcome the
minus 4 of Terry Lacoss (82)
and the minus 1 of Michael
Kaufman (95) as the team
came in fourth at plus 4.
On.Friday play was once
again interrupted in the mid-
dle of the round by Mother
Nature. The storm wasn't
nearly as loud or punctuated
by lightning as it was on
Wednesday and, when play
was resumed, it was Bo
Alvarez who turned in the
round of the week with a six-
under-par 67 and plus 10
points to win individual hon-
ors. Steve Johnson had anoth-
er good outing as he shot a 74,

included Johnson (plus 8),
Wiseman (plus 6), Simon
Carter (77, plus 5) and Ron
Dandurand (81, plus 4), ran
away from the field with a
great score of plus 23.
In a distant second place at
plus 6 was the team led by
Ron Peterson (84, plus 5) and
included Jim Roberts (77,

to the team of Brauda (plus
6), Larry Luett (80, plus 1),
Tom Roberts (81, minus 3)
and Larry Gallo (92, minus 2)
Bo Alvarez (plus 10) got
just enough help from John
Bray (82, plus 3) to offset the
minus 7 by Claude Hartley
(99) and the minus 5 of
Tommy Shave (78) to finish at
plus 1 and share fourth place
with Frank Finocchio (82,

BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
Drew DeAngelo, flanked by Fernandina Beach High School coaches Joshua Dunn, left, and Dan Snyder, will be
attending the University of Charleston in West Virginia on a soccer scholarship. DeAngelo is a recent graduate of
FBHS and is the fourth Pirate currently playing soccer on the collegiate level.


DeAngelo to play for the Golden Eagles


BETH JONES
News-Leader

Drew DeAngelo knows the importance
of good grades. He was sidelined his soph-
omore and junior seasons because his
grade point average was too low to play for
the Fernandina Beach High School boys
soccer team.
"I didn't like the way I was leading," he
said. "I didn't get to play soccer for the
high school. I was letting everyone down.
I wanted to play. I didn't want to do that
anymore."
DeAngelo worked hard and brought up
the GPA so he could play his senior sea-
son with the Pirates. Now, he'll be playing
in college.
"I didn't think I was going to go to col-
lege," DeAngelo said.
DeAngelo received a scholarship to
play at the University of Charleston, the
capitol of West Virginia.
"It's not a full ride, but it's helping a lot,"
DeAngelo said.
"It was late in the process of recruiting
and, with a division two, you are actually
able to go practice with them. So he was
able to show his skills," FBHS Coach


Joshua Dunn said. "I think Charleston fell
in love. They kept in touch with Drew.
'"They have a brand new coach and
he's rebuilding. He's trying to get the best
players he can. He's a young coach, ener-
getic.
"He's willing to take all calls and.this
one worked out for him. I think if.s a good
deal all-around."
Dunn said he missed having DeAngelo
on the field those two years, but said, "I'm
proud of Drew for sticking to it. He want-
ed to go to college and play soccer and he's
doing that. That makes me happy as a
coach when one of these guys sets a plan
and does it."
DeAngelo played on the junior varsity
team his freshman year.
'Then he had to focus on his school
work, and that obviously worked out,"
Dunn said. "The whole time he played on
his own, which is another helpful thing.
You want to get good, practice every day.
"You don't have to be on a team or
have a great coach. Just go out and get that
ball."
When DeAngelo visited Charleston,
he was happy with his decision.
"I felt really at home. The players took


me in," he said. "Its a little different They
told me I talked funny."
DeAngelo has researched his new
team, the Golden Eagles.
"In 2006, they went to the national semi-
finals. In 2007 they went to the finals and
lost. In 2008 they went four and 20 some-
thing, It was a rebuilding year," DeAngelo
said.
DeAngelo said the highlight his senior
season at FBHS was a trip to theregion-
al quarterfinal.
"I didn't think we were going to get
that far but we got that far," he said.
The 5-foot-ll 1/2-inch forward and
midfielder had 32 goals and 28 assists his
senior year for FBHS. He'll play at left
back for Charleston.
DeAngelo said leaving for college
Thursday will be bittersweet.
"I'm ready to move and leave, but at the
same time, I'm not. My mom has helped
me a lot.
"But I'm ready to start playing soccer
in college."
He plans to study education and would
like to become an elementary teacher.
SDeAngelo is the son of Sally and Joseph
DeAngelo of Fernandina Beach.

Historical



FA fish haven
1 IT~ l l J- ~~l*, ' * " y


"We used to fish at FA reef
with a 20-foot wooden boat
powered by twin 20-horse
power outboards," Robert
Hart remembers. "This was
during the early 1970s when
only a handful of boats ven-
tured out to FA reef. Some of
the fishermen who fished FA
reef that I can remember
were Sam Dubose, Eber,
Philips Sr. and Jr. and my dad,
Bob Hart.
"Back in those days, we
never entered the big
Jacksonville kingfish tourna-
ment, but often fished during
the same days the tourna-
ment was running and often
caught bigger kings than won
the tournament."
Hart enjoyed the hey day
of fishing FA fish haven, also
called the Fernandina
Snapper Grounds, and locat-
ed some eight miles south-
east of the St Marys jetty
rocks.
In fact, many deep-sea fish-
ermen did not have the luxu-
ry of a GPS on board to guide
them to their favorite FA hard
bottom or ledge. A compass
reading was used when navi-
gating from the St. Marys
jetty rocks and they estimated
the time it took to run to FA
reef.
Once these early day FA
fishermen reached the reef,
they would look for baitfish
schools feeding close to the
surface, large turtles on the
surface or slick areas in the
surface of the ocean that indi-
cated a rise in the bottom as
the current passed over the
structure.
"There was also no boat
towing services back in those
days," Robert Hart remem-
bers. "We all looked out for
ourselves. I remember
trolling under a boat that we
were towing in more than one
instance when a real scream-
er would hit and we would
have to drop the boat that we
were towing to catch our fish.
"One summer during the
late '70s, there was a Russian
ship that anchored t t,FA reef"
and frequently motored to the
area where we were catching
kingfish just to watch us load
the boat with kings. Their
crew lined the rails to watch."
When fishing wasn't so
good at FA reef, Bob Hart
and many of those early day
deep-sea fishermen would
troll the nearby St Marys
shipping channel with blue


Rebel plugs.
"A per-
fect pass
close to a
channel
buoy would
result in the
line coming
in contact
with the
OUTDOORS buoy cable,
.. -forcing the
.7erryLacoss plug to come
a to the sur-
face where it was frequently
chomped in half by one of
those toothy characters," Bob
Hart said. "One day I was
fishing with Jim Oliver when
a king slammed a spoon and
took off harder than ever
before, then headed for the
surface, then the fishing line
went slack.
'The largest striped wahoo
or barracuda cleared the
water by more than its body
length. I reeled in about five
pounds of what had been
approximately a 20-pound
king mackerel. Seeing this
sight made me feel pretty
uncomfortable during the
rest of the day."
During an early fishing
trip to FA reef, Robert Hall
and his fishing party looked
deep under the boat and
watched a huge whale shark
come closer to see the boat
and fishermen.
"On yet another fishing
trip to FA reef, we saw a giant
hammerhead shark that
looked to be every bit as long
as our 19-foot boat," David
Hart remembers. "I wanted to
try and hook the big hammer-
head shark but Dad wouldn't
let me. Imagine that
"Catching a sailfish one
day at FA reef with Gene
Lasserre aboard the
'Smuggler' was something
else. Yellow tandem hook jigs
adorned with kingfish belly
strips saved from the previ-
ous fishing trip skipped past
the jetties at dawn or overcast
day for kingfish. Now that's
an old school kingfish tip if
'thereetr was one . :." ,. -
.; yBob.:Jart-and his fishing
partners ventured offshore in
all sorts of weather, often
waiting for a passing shrimp
boat to tuck behind until they
passed the jetties.
While the old saying,
"don't go fishing with Bob
Hart unless you really want to
go fishing" are more stories
Sto be told.

Anglers needlicense
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, 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-

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

day to $150 per day and $250
per week to $300 per week, as
determined by FWC
Commissioners; the snook

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.

Beaufort proves to be the perfect nearby getaway


The Big Guy and I set off for an
escape weekend. Call it a mini-vaca-
tion. We did not have to go far to find
ourselves mesmerized by the charm
of another island community further
north. Beaufort, S.C., is a gem.
In many ways it reminded us of
our own home island, only the old
houses are older. Blocks and blocks
of elegant antebellum homes stretch
for blocks, neatly nestled along the
river. Each is sheltered by broad
green umbrellas of beautiful aging
oaks. We found a wonderfully friend-
ly community that welcomed us at
every turn.
Beaufort was known as the most
aristocratic town of its size before the
Civil War. Called the Queen of the
Carolina Sea Islands, it was first dis-
covered by the Spanish in 1514 and
chartered by the British in 1711. It
was a center of commerce with its
indigo, rice and Sea Island cotton
plantations. Its charm remains.


It feels like a
Hollywood set and
has, in fact, been
,.' one. It offers the
S penultimate
Southern scene.
SSpanish moss drip-
ping off ancient
oaks, dignified
columns holding
FROM up broad porches
THE reaching across the
PORCH large white aging
matrons of
Beaufort. In fact it
Dickie is so perfect, the
Anderson moviemakers have
come tb town to
film such movie favorites as "The
Prince of Tides," "Forrest Gump"
and 'The Big Chill."
Big Guy planned the weekend
and he did a great job finding our
charming and comfortable bed and
breakfast, the Rhett Inn. No, it was


not named for the famous character
in Gone with the Wind, but an old
Beaufort family. The charming inn, a
restored 1820 home, is close to Bay
Street, Beaufort's main street.
We learned that the Harrisons,
current owners of the inn, also fell in
love with the charismatic little town
on the river and it forever changed
their lives. They call it their mid-life
opportunity.
They traded the hectic, high-pow-
ered world of fashion and New York
City for the ultimate Southern expe-
rience. They would remodel an old
inn and run a bed and breakfast.
They took their world traveling
experiences and set out to bring the
best of the best to their new proper-
ty. They wanted to create an inn
' ,hat would reflect elegance and com-
, fort with the amenities of a small,,
luxurious hotel and personalized
service of a sophisticated bed and
breakfast inn.


In the earliest days the couple
lived in the house and were the full
staff. The inn has grown from 5 to 17
rooms and the Harrisons maintain a
cottage behind the main house.
Some of the inn's more, famous
guests have included Robert
Redford, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin
Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick. Barbra
Streisand and Nick Nolte were
guests during the filming of "Prince
of Tides." The Harrisons are always
quick to add that every guest is
famous in their eyes.
We took day excursions to the
beautiful parks and Fripp Island. We
passed the shrimping business
where "Forrest Gump" was filmed.
We visited Parris Island. Once a site
of Spanish forts, Parris Island
became a naval station in 1876 and a
prison in 1906. In 1915 the island
became the recruit training station
for the U.S. Marines. Parris Island is
legend to those who know and


respect military discipline. The
Marines that have and do train there
go on to become great heroes and
leaders. A military museum is open
to the public on the base.
We absorbed ourselves in the
ambiance of another place and time
and marveled at the high level of
maintenance that each of the historic
homes enjoys. Our time was spent
exploring on our own and enjoying
two lovely dinners at restaurants rec-
ommended by the inn.
Our weekend away filled the bill.
We escaped to another place and
time and enjoyed a much-needed
break in our routine. Beaufort is a
must-stay for those who love history,
Southern charm and small-town
friendliness.

AIMS earns vaunted accreditation


For the News-Leader

The Amelia Island
Montessori School (AIMS)
has been educating young
people on Amelia Island for
more than 35 years. In May,
the school received accredi-
tation from the Florida Council
of Independent Schools, plac-
ing it in company with the
most reputable private schools
in North Florida - schools like
Bolles, Episcopal High and
Jacksonville Country Day.
AIMS is the only school in
Nassau County that has
earned this accreditation.
AIMS has already been
accredited by the Florida
Kindergarten Council, licen-
sed by the Department of
Children and Families ahd
maintains a membership with
the American Montessori
Society.
The foundational concept
for AIMS began with a group
of parents who knew instinc-
tively that a child-centered
approach to learning would
allow their children to achieve
their own innate potential.
After visiting several Montes-
sori schools and studying the
writings of Dr. Maria Montes-
sori, the group decided to
build AIMS, which opened in
the fall of 1973 with 25 stu-
dents.
Their choice of a Montes-
sori school came from a desire
to see their children in a place
where educational ideals were
supported by sound research.
The Montessori philosophy of
education is derived from the
lifetime of research and prac-
tice of Montessori (1870-
1952), an Italian physician who
used her scientific observa-
tions of children to rethink tra-
ditional approaches to educa-
tion. Montessori was inspired
by the children's almost effort-

less ability to absorb knowl-
edge from their surroundings,
as well as their tireless interest
in manipulating materials.
Every piece of equipment,
every exercise, every method
Montessori developed was
based on what she observed
children to do "naturally," by
themselves, unassisted by
adults.
Montessori capitalized on
the natural phenomenon of
"sensitive" periods - specific
times when children are more
open to learning specific con-
cepts. Since the timing of
these periods is unique to
each child, Montessori
focused on developing a class-
room environment that.allow-
ed each child to work with
materials that enhanced pro-
gress in that specific area of
learning. Her followers includ-
ed American luminaries like
Thomas Edison, Helen Keller,
Alexander Graham Bell, and
President Woodrow Wilson.
In more recent' years,
Montessori schools are
responsible for nurturing

Today, Amelia Island
Montessori School is a model
of Montessori's principles in
action. AIMS currently has a
student body of more than 100
children, ages 18 months to
12 years, and a faculty of ded-
icated educators whose com-
mitment to nurturing and edu-
cating young people is
evidenced by the growth and
confidence of their students.
Step inside any AIMS class-
room and you will see the the-
ory in practice: the classroom
is orderly; the students are
quietly absorbed in their learn-
ing tasks and the adults direct
and enhance the work chosen
by each child. Guided by stu-
dent interest, the teachers rec-
ognize and facilitate learning
within each child's "sensitive"
period of learning. Since
AIMS is housed near the
offices of the Amelia Island
Plantation beneath oaks and
lush foliage, each classroom is
also supplemented with a rich
outdoor environment where
children learn about every-
thing from nature and gar-
dening to the environment
and conservation.

Exploring complementary and alternative medicine


LOOKING BACK


DOUGLAS H. KIRKPATRICK. MD
American College of
Obstetricians and Gynecologists

If you've sipped green tea or ginseng,
taken a Pilates class or gotten a massage
recently, count yourself among the nearly
40 percent of Americans who use some
form of complementary and alternative
medicine, or CAM.
CAM is a term that describes a
diverse group of medical and health care
regimens, practices and products that are
not considered a part of typical U.S. med-
ical treatment. These methods are usual-
ly intended to promote overall health and
well-being or to relieve specific ailments
or symptoms and may be used together
with or instead of conventional medicine.
Examples of CAM include herbal and
nutritional supplements (chamomile,
Echinacea, flaxseed, fish oil/Omega-3s),
exercise-based therapies (yoga, Pilates,
tai chi) and practitioner-based therapies
(acupuncture, massage, chiropractic
work).
Natural products such as herbs and
plant-based products, deep breathing
exercises, meditation, chiropractic and


osteopathic therapy,
A massage, yoga and
diet-based therapies
, (i.e., Atkins diet,
SSouth Beach diet) are
S~. some of the most pop-
S , ular forms of CAM.
According to a recent
survey, CAM methods are commonly
used for problems such as back, neck or
joint pain; arthritis; anxiety; cholesterol;
head or chest colds; severe headaches or
migraines; or insomnia.
Some women also use CAM therapies
for relief of menstrual or menopausal
symptoms or chronic pelvic pain. As with
conventional medicine, individual results
will vary, and CAM may or may not work
for you.
Consumers often assume that herbals
and supplements can be taken without
any harmful effects simply because the
labels say they are natural products. But
don't believe the hype.
Herbs and supplements can act in the
same way that traditional drugs do and
can cause big trouble, especially if used
improperly or.along with other prescrip-
tion or over-the-counter medications.

Few have undergone scientific evaluation
to prove'that they are safe or effective,
and they are not subject to the same gov-
ernmental testing, regulations and stan-
dards as conventional drugs. Many
herbal supplements - such as blue and
black cohosh, ephedra, dong quai, fever-
few, juniper, pennyroyal, St. John's wort,
rosemary and thuja - can also cause a
risk to pregnancy.
It is extremely important that you tell
your doctor about all the complementary
and alternative practices you use and
why you are using them. This will help
alert your doctor to any medical prob-
lems you may be having and ensure that
you receive coordinated and safe care
while avoiding dangerous interactions
and harmful side effects.
Additionally, pregnant women should
not take any supplements for weight loss
or weight gain and should be sure to tell
their doctor about any CAM that they
were taking before or continue to take
during pregnancy.

the National Center for Complementary
and Alternative Medicine website at

Put down


that whiskey,


Mister!
t was a dream as common as brand
new dungarees in the fall and cold
linoleum floors in the winter. But it
came mostly in the summer, when
school was out, when a man had time to
think man thoughts and roam the lonesome
prairie and catch lightning bugs in a jar and
try to figure out what made their little
behinds glow.
The dream had its variations, but it fol-
lowed a familiar theme: I would hitch my
horse to the hitching post, walk in a saloon,
a six-shooter strapped to each leg, order a
glass of milk and wait for
somebody to start trouble.
And when he did, I was
ready. I was the fastest gun
S alive, and I wasn't going to
let anybody make fun of
Smy milk drinking and get
away with it.
Scr The bad guy drinking,
w.... . hiskeywould make'his-
FROM "move, thinking me a sissy,
STHE but justas his gun cleared
the top of his holster, I
HOME would draw and fire, hitting
OFFICE only his gun and knocking
it away. The saloon regu-
lars would ooh and aah as I
PhilHudgins holstered my piece and
picked up my glass of milk.
It was a harmless dream. After all, my
horse was a broom with a rope tied around
the business end. The saloon's bar looked
very much like my parents' small kitchen
table, and the six-shooters shot only caps.
Scenes in the Saturday matinees were a
little more realistic, but not much. Cowboy
Randolph Scott's horse was real, but every-
thing else was as phony as fool's gold. The
guns fired blanks, but even with real bul-
lets, Scott wouldn't have killed anybody,
although he was known to.shoot a guy off
his horse riding at top speed. There was
never any blood. He could fistfight and not
lose his hat. The whiskey must have been
sweet tea.
It was pure fantasy.
Times have changed. Nobody today
would take a loaded pistol into a bar, would
he? Actually, he could in Tennessee now
that the legislature has passed a law allow-
ing folks in bars and restaurants to pack
heat. Never mind that owners of many bars
and restaurants thought the bill was crazy
and since have put up their own rules ban-
ning guns. Legislators figured decent,
responsible citizens have a right to protect
themselves, even if they're schnockered.
I wanted to ask Joe Bowman of Houston
what he would do, but he died in June.
Bowman spent a lifetime putting on shows
with his fast gun and sharpshooting. He
could pulverize an aspirin at 30 paces. He
could split a playing card sideways at 20. He
taught a number of movie cowboys to draw.
Nobody was faster, his friends said.
But fast as he was, would Bowman, who
taught gun safety to kids, have gone into a
modern saloon with a loaded pistol on his
side, knowing others also were armed?
I bet you Randolph Scott wouldn't have.
And that's good enough for this old cowboy.
Phil Hudgins if the senior editor of

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Parking permits
Beach parking permits - in my
opinion, not a bad idea. There could
be a phased-in period as the per-
mits would come in the form of a
sticker for the lower left corner of
one's windshield that would be
issued to Nassau County residents
at the time they register their vehi-
cles. Nonresidents could obtain per-
mits at welcome centers or city halls.
I have seen this work in towns on
Cape Cod for years. I was there first
as a resident and then as a tourist.
Neither status was a big deal getting
a sticker/or permit. The stickers for
permanent residents could be green.
The visitors' could be red with dates

The suggestion for permits is
really not that far out. Much of the
problem relative to the beach comes
from non-residents. It is appropri-
ate that the revenue from permits be
used to offset dealing with such
problems as trash removal, etc.

Public access fees
I have to go with Ron Sapp on
this one ("'Not in Fernandina
Beach,"' July 24). I have been to
California, not voluntarily, and they
charge $10 per vehicle to park at
the public beaches there. All that
extra money doesn't seem to be
doing them a whole lot of good.
Government will spend whatever it
gets, so why give it any more?
Maybe the city could reopen
Funland and Skateland and make a
few bucks that way.
"Next skate, taxpayers only!?"
I had to chuckle when I read
about the fee proposal because it
reminded me of a bold idea some
had in the '80s to have downtown
Fernandina declared a "blight" area
in order to get government money
to fix it up.

Qty marina
I am a full-time cruiser current-
ly at anchor and using the dinghy
dock at the city marina. I have
cruised from the Pacific Northwest,
through the Panama Canal and up
through the Caribbean over the past
few years, experiencing many mari-
nas and witnessing their business
challenges. Having read the article
,July 31 ("g companies bid for right
-to operate city's ririna,") I thought
I might share some insights from a
cruiser's point of view.
A few marinas have the luxury of
little competition, but most don't.
Cruisers research their rharina
choices extensively through the use
of the web and cruising guides.
They seek value, convenience and a
nice social setting where they can
share their experiences. In the case
of Fernandina Beach, the town itself
is a major attraction. However, there
are several other considerations that
do not compare favorably with
Brunswick Landing Marina, which
has just expanded and is full. I use
that as your primary competition
during hurricane season because
insurance companies will cover
boats in Brunswick, Ga., while they
will not cover boats here.
The marina here is more expen-
sive, does not have shower or laun-
dry facilities, does not provide free
WiFi and does not have a lounge
where cruisers can gather and
watch TV in the comfort of air con-
ditioning. A cruiser needs to take a
car to the laundry facility on 14th
street. That is a major cost and
inconvenience. Also, Fernandina
Beach, like Brunswick, has a paper
mill that often causes the air to
smell, more frequently than
Brunswick. I suggest that the con-
sequence of these features is the
number of empty slips in your mari-
na. I understand.that you just raised
the prices here, and unfortunately
that just makes the choice for
Brunswick easier. You might send a
few people up to see what they offer. "
The market for slips is very elas-
tic. I suggest that you experiment
with significantly lower prices to
find the optimized revenue stream.
Here are some thoughts:
Pricing
1. Have High and Low
(Hurricane) season pricing for slips.
2. Have rates that compete with
Brunswick considering the insur-
ance bias for Brunswick during hur-.
ricane season. I would suggest you
start with a $7/foot fee during hur-
ricane season considering the lack
of insurance and amenities.
3. Have rates for slips without
water and power that are a percent-
age of the full service slips until they


are built out. I have seen this set at
50 percent. You would be receiving
revenue at no cost.'
4. You could gradually increase
your rates to find the optimized price
as amenities come online.
I understand that low prices
might attract derelict boats, which
would blight the waterfront. There
is already one out here on a mooring
ball. I have seen how other com-
munities have dealt with this poten-
tial problem and think the city might
consider the following measures.
1. The city could require all boats
in slips to be safe and seaworthy.

The city's right to this is pretty
defensible especially given the
recent fire and a need to be able to
clear the marina quickly in case of
fire or pending storm. You must be
able to clear the marina on short
notice otherwise you might be liable
when boats cause damage to other
boats.
2. You could develop a checklist
for a safety and seaworthy inspec-
tion that could be performed upon
initial (within a year) entry.
3. You could also require demon-
stration of seaworthiness by requir-
ing all boats to leave the dock and go
out to the outer marker in the St.
Marys channel once a quarter.
During this event; they would be
required to use their primary propul-
sion systems for the portion of the
trip between marker x and marker
y and return to marker x. This would
mean sailboats would need their rig-
ging and sails in good working
order.
The question is whether these
restrictions coupled with lower
prices would result in higher total
revenue. I believe it would.

Wealth of information -
I want.t'td thank' you, for Patf
Foster-Turley's Wild Ways column.
Over the past few years, I have
learned a wealth of valuable infor-
mation about Amelia Island and
nature in general from Pat I look for-
ward each week to reading her col-
umn and am always delighted with
her direct, easy to understand style.
I have shared many of the interest-
ing tidbits I have learned from her
with friends and family who live
across the country.

Slanted
I have noticed that every time
the words News-Leader are printed
in letters the type slants to the right~
This especially caught my attention
when (Commissioner) Mike Boyle
wrote in recently and advised the
News-Leader where the articles that
are written should be placed in the
paper and what the content should
contain. At first I was worried that
Mike Boyle was the editor of the
News-Leader and would continue to
instruct the News-Leader on content,
and lean all type to the right as in
Republican. You have to type to the
left once in awhile.

Jobs forAmerica
It occurred to me as I was sit-
ting on hold with (a satellite TV
provider) that there is something
exceedingly wrong in America. We
have all these people out of work in
this country and here I am, on hold,
and waiting to talk to some person
who speaks questionable English
at best in some foreign country!
Why do we support companies that
do such a thing to our own people?
The thing of it is that most of
these companies are ones we do not
have to do business with. Most of
them we have options on which
company to use for our service. I
will tell you one thing, I never called
Comcast and got someone in
Pakistan or India! Now I do not say
we all need to switch to Comcast, but
I would love to see people, when
choosing a product supplier, ask
where their customer service is
located and are the employees
American.
If we refused to use these com-
panies, it would not be long before
they brought those jobs home...

Deficit meltdown?
How to pay off our national
deficit has been solved and there is
a proposal now on the table. A bill
titled "The Monetary Reform Act"
would be workable but lacks


metaphoric elements like turning
the current debt into frozen money.
Should we embellish the act, to
remind us of monetizing the deficit,
as Alexander Hamilton had once
accomplished and the close call we
had of being sunk by a deficit'ice-
berg? Tom Sawyer wouldn't hesitate
to embellish and neither do I.
The steps:
Pay off all the debt with debt-
free U.S. notes (that is to say money,
not interest-carrying bonds).
To avoid the inflation that print-
ing a large quantity of notes causes,
fractional-reserve lending would be
proportionally and simultaneously
converted to full-reserve lending.
Currently the same money is lent to
more than one person. The result is
that 90 percent of all inflationary
pressure comes from fractional-
reserve lending
To remind us of the past the
money to pay off the deficit would be
owned by two agents. The frozen,
never spendable money used to pur-
chase our liberty, thus depicting
Lady Liberty, would be owned by
our progeny. The spendable part
would be tied to the frozen part by
matching serial numbers.

Obaniais scary ...
In a speech given by Barack
Obama on July 2, 2008, entitled "A
New Era of Service" at the
University of Colorado in Colorado
Springs, he said "We cannot contin-
ue to rely only on our military in
order to achieve the national secu-
rity objectives that we've set We've
got to have a civilian national secu-
rity force that'sjust as powerful, just
as strong, just as well-funded."
Hitler had the same such force;
it was called the SS.
I am not calling Obama another
Hitler. But I am saying Obama is'
changing the face of America faster
than anyone should be able to. It
scares me just how easy and fast he
seems to be able to do it, and almost
no one says anything about it He
and his staff call anyone that had
anything to do with the Tea parties
a racist It has nothing to do about
race; it has to do with changing the
face of America.
Seeing a communist sitting side
by side with the president, seeing
czars after czars who answer only to
the president. We are supposed to
have a democratic country. But it
seems that no one in Washington
is listening to us, and we are the
ones that sent them there.
God help us, the next three years
our country is going to go under a
drastic change, I pray the people
don't just lie down and take it. She
needs us now more than ever.

Facts ofthe matter
Re: "Facts of the matter," June
24, written by city building inspector
Fred Lindes.
Obviously, Mr. Lindes did not
review all of his documentation prior
to writing this letter in regards to the
placement of a dollhouse on my
property for my twin five-year-olds.
First and foremost, no one had
claimed to my knowledge that the
city of Fernandina Beachohad any-
thing to do with the militant behav-
ior of the homeowner association
that is currently running the facility.
Keep in mind that the city has not
even bothered to check on whether
or not there has been appropriate
premises insurance obtained or
maintained and/or whether or not
each member of the board is bond-
ed or insured for decisions made
by themselves on behalf of this com-
munity. Nor has the city followed
up with my complaints that a faulty
gate may be the cause of my
youngest child's most serious med-
ical problems stemming from a near-
drowning incident in the retention
pond right outside my front door I
believe it is the city's duty to per-
form such inspections as they have
done to my family and my business.


Please let it be noted that on no
paperwork, to my knowledge, has
there ever been written or stated to
me personally that our dollhouse
did not meet the "set-back" require-
ments. Mr. Lindes states that there
was an investigation, yet the only
proof he has provided the council
and me are black and white dulled
photographs over a fence covering
a car and the dollhouse and his state-
ments from a disgruntled neighbor.
Therefore, Mr. Lindes couldn't pos-
.sibly have any knowledge of the
actual placement, the depth, the
building codes, etc., without illegal-
ly being on my property. Mr: indes
had declined my offer to do so after
several telephone calls to his office
offering this to him in my presence.
He has even refused to speak to tel-
evision crews and other newspaper
personnel "on record."
Upon his request for engineering
specifications,.I immediately sup-
plied the city with what was given to
me by the store in which I ordered
said dollhouse. Now please note that
this facility was being built on sight
and not instore and was being erect-
ed in order to protect my small chil-
dren from the temptation of playing
in the pond that continues to remain
a threat and danger to those around.
I do not recll:being asked about
engineering drawings or reluire-
ments separately from that of what
was given to us to utilize to build. I
supplied what was given, Iwas never
instructed to provide my own engi-
neer or that the city would have one
provided. Since I do work within the
Construction industry there would
have been absolutely no-problem in
getting a set reviewed and approved.
Mr. Iindes stated in his third
paragraph that the dollhouse was
in fact placed eight feet off the
ground. Please note for the record
that eight-foot 4x4's were utilized,
but were placed approximately three
feet under ground and cemented,
therefore making the design approx-
imately five feet off the ground and
not his stated eight feet Upon all
these false allegations I requested
another hearing date or an appeal
date basing my missing the first non-
appearance on my medical surgery.
This was a one-time surgery and
the city was aware of my medical
need by the surgeon himself, yet
they denied my request.
In paragraph three, Mr. Lindes
stated that the city contacted the
engineer of the dollhouse and he
refused to sign off on the changes.
Though it was ordered and not
assembled when delivered, so how
could there be a sign-off of any doc-
uments as the building was yet
unseen? According to Mr.1indes a
variance was required, though never
to my knowledge did I receive doc-
* umentation of this requirement I
respectfully request Mr. lindes pro-
vide proof that this was stated to my
person.
SPlease also note that the docu-
ments I do have in hand, the same
ones that (columnist Joe) Palmer
reviewed, as ny files are complete-
ly an open book, there appeared to
be white-out on dates that didn't
even correspond with the stamped
dates, there appeared to be numer-
ous discrepancies on all documen-
tation and yet the city still believes
it can place a lien on my home, yet
release those on the businesses or
persons they have in their favor.
(For example Florida House Inn for
$100,000 and many others costing
the city hundreds of thousands of
dollars.)
Instead of the mediation I
requested, Mr. Lndes has pushed
forward towards litigation, thus
going to cost the citizens additional
monies for. a simple child's play
house. I respectfully ask the city to
pull out all their documents on doll-
houses, tree houses, playhouses,
etc., within the county or city, as I,
personally shall show proof and doc-
umentation of several persons who
have never had to go through the
city to put up their tree houses, doll-
houses, playhouse for any such rea-
sons.

Bear captured in Georgia


Community Newspapers


A black bear that roamed Amelia Island for near-
ly two weeks was tranquilized and captured in
Georgia on Saturday.
A spokesperson for the Florida Wildlife Service
confirmed it was the same bear. Karen Parker said
Georgia wildlife officials said the bear was in a res-
idential neighborhood and entered a garage in St.
Marys, Ga. The bear was relocated a short dis-
tance away in Georgia, she said.
St. Marys, Ga., resident Jessica Gabbard said
Sunday the bear was captured in a garage at


Sugarmill Plantation, a residential community there.
"I watched as it came through neighborhoods
and ended up in a lady's garage," Gabbard wrote in
an e-mail.
Molly Noble was that lady. She said the bear
rummaged around in her garage and she sum-
moned Camden County deputies, who then brought
in officials from the Georgia Department of Natural
Resources. One of them shot the bear with a tran-
quilizer dart.
The bear was sighted about 1 p.m. Friday swim-
ming to Tiger Island, just off Amelia Island. It could
easily swim from there to the Georgia mainland at


St. Marys.
Capt. Willie Sweat of the Amelia River
Excursions' Cumberland Sound ferry, the Bald
Eagle, said he saw the bear swimming in the Amelia
River.
"I was coming across Quarantine Point, just
across from the pogy plant," he said. "He was about
10 yards out in the water there, swimming toward
Tiger Island. We watched him come out of the
water and into the woods.
"He looked like he was healthy and spry," Sweatt

JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
City and county fire rescue offi-
cials are dealing with the budget
crunch brought on by a flailing econ-
omy by implementing cost-cutting
measures while handling an ever-
increasing service call volume.
Both Nassau County Fire Rescue
Chief Chuck Cooper and Fernandina
Beach Fire Chief Dan Hanes said they
have adopted proactive strategies to
soften the effects of what might be
shortfalls in their 2009-10 proposed
budgets. By applying for grants, adopt-
ing extended equipment maintenance
programs and working together with
departments in nearby jurisdictions,
among other initiatives, Cooper and
Hanes stressed a no-frills approach
focused on maintaining a high level
of service to the community.
"The board has been adamant they
won't cut public safety, but it is incum-
bent upon us as department heads to
stretch equipment," Cooper said.

Swine flu
RYAN SMITH
News Leader
A 2-year-old girl who attends a
Fernandina Beach daycare center has
contracted swine flu, according to the
Nassau County Health Department.
Two other children are also suspected
to have the illness, also known as the
HINI virus.
While local health officials would
not release the name of the center, cit-
ing confidentiality rules, the pastors
of Memorial Methodist Church, 601
Centre St., confirmed that the case
was reported at the church's Lamb
Christian Preschool and Daycare.

Swine flu and childcare
The Nassau County Health Department and federal Centers for
Disease Control issued the following guidelines for preventing
swine flu in childcare facilities:
* Childcare providers should conduct daily health checks on all
children. For information on conducting health checks, visit
http://nrckids.org and see "Caring for Our Children, Standards
3.001 and 3.002."
* III children should stay home and not be taken out of one child
care program and put into another, even temporarily, as this may
spread the illness.
* Childcare facilities should clean and sanitize frequently
touched surfaces - desks, doorknobs, computer keyboards, toys -
routinely and if they become visibly soiled. Influenza may remain
viable for several hours on surfaces and can spread to others by
touching unclean surfaces.
Closure of childcare programs due to swine flu is not currently
recommended. Childcare programs should follow the CDC recom-
mendations for schools and childcare facilities along with the other
recommendations on the CDC website,
www.cdc.gov/H1 N1flu/kl2_dismissal.htm#childcare.

Exploring complementary and alternative medicine


50 YEARS AGO

5,000-pound anchor about 1

Obstetricians and Gynecologists

If you've sipped green tea or ginseng,
taken a Pilates class or gotten a massage
recently, count yourself among the nearly
40 percent of Americans who use some
form of complementary and alternative
medicine, or CAM.
CAM is a term that describes a
diverse group of medical and health care
regimens, practices and products that are
not considered a part of typical U.S. med-
ical treatment. These methods are usual-
ly intended to promote overall health and
well-being or to relieve specific ailments
or symptoms and may be used together
with or instead of conventional medicine.
Examples of CAM include herbal and
nutritional supplements (chamomile,
Echinacea, flaxseed, fish oil/Omega-3s),
exercise-based therapies (yoga, Pilates,
tai chi) and practitioner-based therapies
(acupuncture, massage, chiropractic
work).
Natural products such as herbs and
plant-based products, deep breathing
exercises, meditation, chiropractic and


_osteopathic therapy,
massage, yoga and
diet-based therapies
N (i.e., Atkins diet,
South Beach diet) are
some of the most pop-
ular forms of CAM.
According to a recent
survey, CAM methods are commonly
used for problems such as back, neck or
joint pain; arthritis; anxiety; cholesterol;
head or chest colds; severe headaches or
migraines; or insomnia.
Some women also use CAM therapies
for relief of menstrual or menopausal
symptoms or chronic pelvic pain. As with
conventional medicine, individual results
will vary, and CAM may or may not work
for you.
Consumers often assume that herbals
and supplements can be taken without
any harmful effects simply because the
labels say they are natural products. But
don't believe the hype.
Herbs and supplements can act in the
same way that traditional drugs do and
can cause big trouble, especially if used
improperly or along with other prescrip-
tion or over-the-counter medications.

Swine flu? Maybe,


but maybe not


RYAN SMITH
News Leader


A case of suspected swine
flu at the Nassau County
Judicial Annex will never be
confirmed.
Assistant State Attorney
Wesley White experienced flu-
like symptoms July 22 and
went to the hospital for test-
ing.
"What they told me at the
hospital was that swine flu is a
sub-type of Influenza-A, and 96
percent of people who test pos-
itive for Influenza-A have swine
flu," he said Friday. "But based
on the prevalence and the high
percentage, they weren't test-
ing specifically for swine flu.
So we'll never know for sure. I
can tell you this - I've had the
flu before, and I've never, ever
felt anything like this. It's the
worst I've felt in 30 years."
White said he recovered at
home. He's back at work now.
"I feel great, actually," he
said. "I went back to work on
(July 29). I felt a little bit
fatigued, but I feel fine now."
Also still unconfirmed as
swine flu are the symptoms
experienced by eight Bank of
America employees in mid-
July. The bank's branch on
Eighth Street in Fernandina
Beach closed July 14 when the
employees became ill.
Nassau County Public
Health Manager Kim Geib
said Thursday that none of the
afflicted employees chose to
get tested for the virus.
There have been eight con-
firmed cases of swine flu in
Nassau County, according to
the county health department.
All of the ill have recovered or
are recovering.
Geib said it is important for
people to take preventive
measures against the illness.
"As time goes by, it's very
likely that we're going to see
clusters, especially as school
starts," she said. "We are still



FLU Continued from 1A
among children.
"Friday we did send some-
thing out to the daycares ... to
remind them that we have
been seeing swine flu in the
communities, and now in the
daycare facilities," she said. "For
parents who have ill children,
we're recommending not to
transfer their child to another
facility because that could
spread the illness.
"Childcare providers,
because of what's going on,
should be conducting daily
health checks on their chil-
dren," she added.
There have been eight con-
firmed cases of swine flu in
Nassau County. The ill have
ranged in age from 2 to 37 years
old. None of the cases has been
fatal.

seeing fairly
high-level
activity in
Florida."
Based
upon his own
experience,
White
stressed that
flu-like symp-
toms should-
n't be taken


lightly.
"I think it's very important
that anybody who has symp-
toms of this flu see a doctor
as soon as possible," he said.
Preventing the spread of
swine flu and other influenza
viruses in the workplace is
basically a matter of common
sense and good hygiene. Here
are some tips from the Nassau
County Health Department
and the federal Centers for
Disease Control:
* Cover your cough.
Cough into your sleeve or a
tissue, not into your hand.
* Disinfect common sur-
faces like keyboards, tele-
phones, countertops, door-
knobs and bathroom fixtures.
Use a disinfectant that is
labeled as effective against
influenza viruses.
* Wash hands often, espe-
cially after coughing or sneez-
ing. Alcohol-based hand sani-
tizers can be used if soap and
water are not available.
* Stay home if you're sick.
The CDC recommends
employees with flu-like ill-
nesses stay home for seven
days after symptoms begin or
until 24 hours after symptoms
end, whichever is longer.

tenance program, which in
turn gives a better product to
taxpayers - it's all about
stretching tax dollars while not
compromising services or
safety."
According to figures pro-
vided by the Nassau County
Office of Management and
Budget, the proposed county
fire rescue budget for 2009-10
is $11.2 million, a 4.2 percent
decrease from the 2008-9 orig-
inal budget, including a 12.6
percent decrease in operating
costs. Cooper said additional
cuts have been made that will
reflect a 10 percent decrease in
the total budget when it goes
before the county for approval
in September, including
reduced overtime in the fire
prevention bureau.
But Cooper said trimming
the budget would not translate
to a reduction of human
resources.
"We realize manpower is
important and we will continue
to bring more resources in,"
he said, noting that the depart-
ment is not under a hiring
freeze if a position opens up.
"(The department's) proac-
tive training and the use of vol-
unteers and reserve firefight-
ers allows for more free
manpower," Cooper said. "Re-
cent graduates of fire school
can be put on reserve where
they keep up with training and
gain valuable experience that
makes them qualified, trained
firefighters when permanent,
paid positions open up."
Nassau County Fire Rescue
also has benefited from an
AutoPulse grant from the state
Department of Health for
$82,256 (25 percent of which is
to be paid by the county) that
will increase levels of service
while freeing up manpower.
The AutoPulse is an auto-
matic band that wraps around
a patient's chest and provides
consistent compression, said
Assistant Chief Sam Young. As

a result, transport will require
only two medics and one per-
son driving in cardiac life sup-
port scenarios, he said.
Hanes said city fire rescue,
at roughly one-third the size
of the county in terms of man-
power, is lagging in modern
equipment, but stressed serv-
ice levels remain high.
"We're making every effort
to continue the current level
of service with less money,"
he said. "But there is common
technology throughout the
industry we do without."
Hanes cited a lack of com-
munications equipment such
as computers that produce
medical reports in the field that
he said are as vital to the
department as they are to hos-
pitals in patient care and pro-
viding statistical data for the
state.
"We have one such com-
puter in the field right now,
whereas most fire departments
have them on every vehicle,"
he said. "They aren't a luxury,
they're a necessity - it's 1990's
technology we are doing with-
out."
Hanes said the computers
are used to capture timely and
accurate reports, but added
this does not represent a defi-
ciency. He said it takes more
time to fill out reports and it's
simply an example of doing
more with less.
Hanes also said most nor-
mally scheduled equipment
replacement would be
deferred, with a focus on main-

tenance and conservation.
"The community is very
well protected and we're oper-
ating efficiently with safe equip-
ment," he said. "But we can't
keep deferring costs; we must
look closely at decisions made
and feel comfortable with the
deferments. Anything post-
poned or deferred, I'm com-
fortable with, but there are
things that need to be
addressed down the road."
And though the current
proposed budget for 2009-10
is $3.6 million, an increase of
13.2 percent from 2008-9,
according to figures provided
by the city's Office of Finance,
the proposed operating budg-
et, which covers equipment
costs among other things, is
down 4 percent. And Hanes
said while the goal is still to
come in under last year's budg-
et, that might be unrealistic.
"There are still very sharp
axes to be taken to the 2009-10
budget," he said. "The story is
yet to be told, but we'll have a
better idea in September when
the budget is approved."
Hanes also said his depart-
ment has applied for two
grants. One is for fire station
modifications and the other for
backup generators, both
applied for through the Depart-
ment of Homeland Security.
And though the department
is on a hiring freeze he said
there are some openings under
review.
"I'm going to ask that they
be filled," he said. "But it's up
to me to present the case, and
up to the city manager and the
commission to approve."

added. "He just bounded into
the trees."
Georgia resident Allan
Chester said he saw the bear
haul itself out of the St. Marys
River and onto the marsh east
of Point Peter about 5:15 p.m.
Friday. It was seen Friday night
in two St. Marys subdivisions.
The bear was seen Saturday
afternoon crossing Charlie
Smith Sr. Highway and then in
the Sugarmill subdivision.
Ed Van Otteren, a wildlife
technician with the Georgia
Department of Natural Resour-
ces, responded late Saturday
afternoon after the bear was
found rummaging inside
Nobel's garage.
With the main garage door
closed, Van Otteren and two co-
workers set a trap in front of
the bear's only escape route --
an open side door. With the
bear facing the trap, Van
Otteren had his perfect shot.
Seven to 10 minutes later, the
bear was sleeping peace-
fully inside the trap, a large
metal cylinder strapped to a
trailer.
The bear had roamed
Amelia Island since at least July
21, spending much of its time at
Fort Clinch State Park but also
moving along Egans Creek
Greenway to the south side of
the island.
The bear was relocated from
Palm Beach County to the
Osceola Wildlife Management
Area in Baker and Columbia
counties in late June.
From there the young male
bear made his way to Amelia
Island.

Good news? Better not bank on it


This is another of those
good news/bad news dichoto-
mies.
With so much bad news of
late, let's start with the good
news. A major government
agency is opening a satellite
office in Jacksonville and will
hire up to 500 workers, with
lucrative salaries ranging from
$60,000 to $140,000. The posi-
tions will be temporary by most
definitions, depending upon the
workload.
The bad news is that the
agency is the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp., known more
commonly as FDIC. This is the
government department that
seizes and liquidates banks
when they go bad - and trans-
fers the insured assets to
healthier institutions.
The FDIC is both the mor-
tician and the undertaker when
it comes to faltering financial
institutions. It has been some-
what busy this year, taking over
32 banks in the U.S. thus far. In
2008, 25 banks failed. Only
three banks failed in 2007.

seamless
transition.
The targeted
bank closes
on Friday
under one
name, and
reopens on
Monday
under anoth-
er name. The
FDIC in-
sures depo-
sits per
account (in
federally
chartered


banks) up to $250,000 - higher
than the $100,000 limit of prior,
less-problematic years.
The location of the FDIC
office is a reason for some con-
cern. There have been reports
in local newspapers about the
sub-par health of some banks in
the Jacksonville area, as well
as around Florida. Many banks
have been left holding the debts
of residential and commercial
properties financed during the
real estate boom.
This is not a commentary


on or indictment of any partic-
ular bank. Most banks in
Nassau County have apparent-
ly fared decently navigating the
difficult markets of the past two
years, for instance.
There are several advan-
tages to the Jacksonville loca-
tion, with a conveniently locat-
ed airport for travel to other
banks, as well as affordable
office space. The new office will
reportedly occupy the old
CitiBank and Universal Card
buildings in a Baymeadows
business park. The office will
service the east coast of the
U.S.
However, you do not locate
an office of this nature in the
Mojave Desert, although the
real estate is also cheap there;
you place it close to the root of
a problem. The real estate mar-
ket in Florida has declined by
40 percent in value in some
places and has been battered by
foreclosures and delinquencies.
Of the 32 bank closures this
year, six have been in Georgia
and two in Florida. Six addi-
tional banks in these two states


were seized in the second half
of 2008. Jacksonville-area banks
reportedly have a higher level
of delinquent loans than in
other parts of the U.S., and
exceed the levels of banks in
Tampa, Orlando and Miami (as
of first quarter results).
The FDIC has typically used
< ii. ..i h i ! i..... to position itself
near concentrations of bank fail-
ures. As the workload dimin-
ishes, the temporary offices are
closed. FDIC workers will grad-
ually begin to move here in
mid-September.
Some experts conclude that
the increased staffing of FDIC
offices means more banks will
fail in the coming year. A fur-
ther drop in house prices and
increase in credit losses could


lead to this development.
FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair
has said the U.S. banking sys-
tem is improving - emerging
from the depths of the credit
crisis - although there will be a
"steady pace" of bank failures.
The local FDIC office is expect-
ed to remain open for the next
three to five years.
Hopefully, the office will not
be needed for too long, as the
U.S. economy and the real
estate markets appear to be bot-
toming. These are jobs the area
will gladly give away to anoth-
er area.

Consumers fret


unemployment


University of Florida
GAINESVILLE - The
state's double-digit unemploy-
ment rate is likely to blame for
a drop in Florida's consumer
confidence in July despite
good news about housing
prices and the stock market, a
new University of Florida sur-
vey finds.
"We had expected con-
sumer confidence to fluctuate
... for the next few months,
but given the current eco-
nomic climate, this decline
comes as a bit of a surprise,"
said Chris McCarty, director of
UF's Survey Research Center
at the Bureau of Economic and
Business Research.
Consumers' increasing pes-
simism about long-term eco-
nomic conditions and the out-
look for their personal finances
account for most of the down-
turn, McCarty said. "Given
that the stock market is now
up for the year and housing is
showing strong signs of stabi-
lizing, I would attribute much
of this decline to the news
about employment," he said.
Florida's unemployment
rate now stands at 10.6 per-
cent, McCarty said. However,
most economists believe the
actual figure is higher because
many Floridians have at least
temporarily given up looking
for work until the economy
fully recovers from the reces-
sion, he said.
Rehiring is among the last
things businesses will do,
McCarty said. Typically, the
unemployment rate continues
to rise during economic recov-
eries until companies see pos-
itive signs in the business envi-
ronment that appear to be long
lasting, he said.
"Given the massive struc-
tural readjustment to U.S. busi-
nesses over the past two years,
getting back to full employ-
ment will no doubt take longer
than was the case with past


recessions," he said.
The positive trends in the
stock market and housing
stand in sharp contrast to the
bleak job market picture, he
said.
After falling below 6,500,
the Dow Jones Industrial
Average is now up from where
it was at the beginning of the
year, McCarty said. There is
speculation whether the rally
will continue as the federal
infusion of economic stimulus
money wears off, but for now
it appears stable, he said.
Housing in Florida
improved again in June overall
with the median price of a sin-
gle-family home increasing
once again, to $148,000 from
$144,400 in May, McCarty
said. "While still 43 percent off
the peak median price reached
in June 2006, prices appear to
be increasing, which will help
solidify perceptions of wealth,"
he said.
Four of the five compo-
nents that make up the index
fell in July. The largest drop
was in expectations of U.S. eco-
nomic conditions over the next
five years. The only compo-
nent to rise was perceptions
as to whether it is a good time
to buy big-ticket consumer
items.
"Moving forward, we pre-
dict consumer confidence may
gain a little in the next month
or two given this big of a drop,"
McCarty said. "Although there
is certainly still room for a
decline, the record low (in
June 2008) during the worst
of the housing crisis and week-
ly economic horror stories
about the largest of financial
institutions failing."

Last summer Japan:



this summer Korea


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
For many high school stu-
dents, a typical summer vaca-
tion roughly translates into
reluctantly piling in the family
minivan for an arduous drive
followed by a cramped stay in a
hotel to spend a few lazy days of
soaking in sunshine, sightsee-
ing or visiting various attrac-
tions.
Sure, experiences differ, but
even if their vacation doesn't
fall in line with this great
American cliche, it's safe to say
most teens won't have the
opportunity to leave the conti-
nent this summer. And even
fewer will be spending time in
South Korea.
But that's not the case for
Shamrin Lullo. The 17-year old
Yulee High School student and
current valedictorian of her jun-
ior class will be making her sec-
ond trip to the Far East in just
over a year. Last summer, as
one of 10 winners of a full schol-
arship from Mazda Corp., she
traveled to Japan and stayed
with a host family where she
said she immersed herself in
day-to-day life.
"It was like if you were actu-
ally living there - like a day in
the life," Lullo said. "On the
weekends the other exchange
students and I would go to the
city and spend little weekend
trips, but it was mostly a real-life
experience."
This year, as one of 80 full
scholarship winners of the CIEE
and Korea Foundation South


Korea study abroad program
for U.S. high school students,
Lullo will be spending two full
weeks from Aug. 8-22 explor-
ing and experiencing Korean
culture first-hand with a bit
more freedom to sightsee.
And Lullo is especially look-
ing forward to one particularly
rare cultural experience.
"We're going to be taking a
tour of the DMZ (demilitarized
zone) between North and South
Korea," Lullo said. "I'm really
interested to spend some time
there and do the different tours
because not a lot of people get
to do that and it's really inter-
esting culture and history right
there just in that small area."
In addition to a trip to the
DMZ, the trip is chock full of
opportunities for learning,
including historical and public
policy lectures and activity class-

es that involve hands-on appli-
cations of cultural traditions.
The program stems from the
idea of promoting cultural
understanding set forth at the
Republic of Korea-U.S. Summit
in August 2008, which, broadly
speaking, was aimed at further
developing and maintaining
peace and prosperity between
the two countries. And although
the U.S. and South Korea are
allies, Lullo said the lack of cul-
tural understanding sometimes
creates confusion among state-
side acquaintances.
"A lot of times when I tell
people I'm going to South Korea
and they say (suspiciously)
'South Korea?' They always
associate it with North Korea
and I guess that's kind of a prob-
lem because they're so differ-
ent," she said.
Though differing in culture
and language, Lullo said her
experiences in Japan have bet-
ter prepared her for this trip -
especially in terms of what to
expect as far as independence
and time away from family.
And she looks forward to
sharing experiences from anoth-
er adventure into the Orient
upon her return.
"It's pretty exciting," Lullo
said. "My teachers really like
to ask questions and see pic-
tures. I just got a letter of rec-
ommendation from one of my
teachers for this trip and she's
really excited. So it's kind of fun
to come back and talk about it
and talk about it with other
friends and people who have
also traveled and kind of com-
pare stories and experiences."

Put down


that whiskey,


Mister!

t was a dream as common as brand
new dungarees in the fall and cold
linoleum floors in the winter. But it
came mostly in the summer, when
school was out, when a man had time to
think man thoughts and roam the lonesome
prairie and catch lightning bugs in a jar and
try to figure out what made their little
behinds glow.
The dream had its variations, but it fol-
lowed a familiar theme: I would hitch my
horse to the hitching post, walk in a saloon,
a six-shooter strapped to each leg, order a
glass of milk and wait for
somebody to start trouble.
And when he did, I was
ready. I was the fastest gun
P * alive, and I wasn't going to
- \ let anybody make fun of
my milk drinking and get
away with it.
The bad guy drinking
whiskey would make his
FROM move, thinking me a sissy,
THE but just as his gun cleared
the top of his holster, I
HOME would draw and fire, hitting
OFFICE only his gun and knocking
.....- it away. The saloon regu-
lars would ooh and aah as I
PhilHudgins holstered my piece and
picked up my glass of milk.
It was a harmless dream. After all, my
horse was a broom with a rope tied around
the business end. The saloon's bar looked
very much like my parents' small kitchen
table, and the six-shooters shot only caps.
Scenes in the Saturday matinees were a
little more realistic, but not much. Cowboy
Randolph Scott's horse was real, but every-
thing else was as phony as fool's gold. The
guns fired blanks, but even with real bul-
lets, Scott wouldn't have killed anybody,
although he was known to shoot a guy off
his horse riding at top speed. There was
never any blood. He could fistfight and not
lose his hat. The whiskey must have been
sweet tea.
It was pure fantasy.
Times have changed. Nobody today
would take a loaded pistol into a bar, would
he? Actually, he could in Tennessee now
that the legislature has passed a law allow-
ing folks in bars and restaurants to pack
heat. Never mind that owners of many bars
and restaurants thought the bill was crazy
and since have put up their own rules ban-
ning guns. Legislators figured decent,
responsible citizens have a right to protect
themselves, even if they're schnockered.
I wanted to ask Joe Bowman of Houston
what he would do, but he died in June.
Bowman spent a lifetime putting on shows
with his fast gun and sharpshooting. He
could pulverize an aspirin at 30 paces. He
could split a playing card sideways at 20. He
taught a number of movie cowboys to draw.
Nobody was faster, his friends said.
But fast as he was, would Bowman, who
taught gun safety to kids, have gone into a
modern saloon with a loaded pistol on his
side, knowing others also were armed?
I bet you Randolph Scott wouldn't have.
And that's good enough for this old cowboy.

[ VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Parking permits
Beach parking permits - in my
opinion, not a bad idea. There could
be a phased-in period as the per-
mits would come in the form of a
sticker for the lower left corner of
one's windshield that would be
issued to Nassau County residents
at the time they register their vehi-
cles. Nonresidents could obtain per-
mits at welcome centers or city halls.
I have seen this work in towns on
Cape Cod for years. I was there first
as a resident and then as a tourist.
Neither status was a big deal getting
a sticker/or permit. The stickers for
permanent residents could be green.
The visitors' could be red with dates
inscribed by issuer.
The suggestion for permits is
really not that far out. Much of the
problem relative to the beach comes
from non-residents. It is appropri-
ate that the revenue from permits be
used to offset dealing with such
problems as trash removal, etc.

Public access fees
I have to go with Ron Sapp on
this one ("'Not in Fernandina
Beach,"' July 24). I have been to
California, not voluntarily, and they
charge $10 per vehicle to park at
the public beaches there. All that
extra money doesn't seem to be
doing them a whole lot of good.
Government will spend whatever it
gets, so why give it any more?
Maybe the city could reopen
Funland and Skateland and make a
few bucks that way.
"Next skate, taxpayers only!?"
I had to chuckle when I read
about the fee proposal because it
reminded me of a bold idea some
had in the '80s to have downtown
Fernandina declared a "blight" area
in order to get government money
to fix it up.

City marina
I am a full-time cruiser current-
ly at anchor and using the dinghy
dock at the city marina. I have
cruised from the Pacific Northwest,
through the Panama Canal and up
through the Caribbean over the past
few years, experiencing many mari-
nas and witnessing their business
challenges. Having read the article
July 31 ("2 companies bid for right
to operate city's marina,") I thought
I might share some insights from a
cruiser's point of view.
A few marinas have the luxury of
little competition, but most don't.
Cruisers research their marina
choices extensively through the use
of the web and cruising guides.
They seek value, convenience and a
nice social setting where they can
share their experiences. In the case
of Fernandina Beach, the town itself
is a major attraction. However, there
are several other considerations that
do not compare favorably with
Brunswick Landing Marina, which
has just expanded and is full. I use
that as your primary competition
during hurricane season because
insurance companies will cover
boats in Brunswick, Ga., while they
will not cover boats here.
The marina here is more expen-
sive, does not have shower or laun-
dry facilities, does not provide free
WiFi and does not have a lounge
where cruisers can gather and
watch TV in the comfort of air con-
ditioning. A cruiser needs to take a
car to the laundry facility on 14th
street. That is a major cost and
inconvenience. Also, Fernandina
Beach, like Brunswick, has a paper
mill that often causes the air to
smell, more frequently than
Brunswick. I suggest that the con-
sequence of these features is the
number of empty slips in your mari-
na. I understand that you just raised
the prices here, and unfortunately
that just makes the choice for
Brunswick easier. You might send a
few people up to see what they offer.
The market for slips is very elas-
tic. I suggest that you experiment
with significantly lower prices to
find the optimized revenue stream.
Here are some thoughts:
Pricing
1. Have High and Low
(Hurricane) season pricing for slips.
2. Have rates that compete with
Brunswick considering the insur-
ance bias for Brunswick during hur-
ricane season. I would suggest you
start with a $7/foot fee during hur-
ricane season considering the lack
of insurance and amenities.
3. Have rates for slips without
water and power that are a percent-
age of the full service slips until they
are built out. I have seen this set at
50 percent. You would be receiving


revenue at no cost.
4. You could gradually increase
your rates to find the optimized price
as amenities come online.
I understand that low prices
might attract derelict boats, which
would blight the waterfront. There
is already one out here on a mooring
ball. I have seen how other com-
munities have dealt with this poten-
tial problem and think the city might
consider the following measures.
1. The city could require all boats
in slips to be safe and seaworthy.


ADAM ZYGLIS/THE BUFFALO NEWS


The city's right to this is pretty
defensible especially given the
recent fire and a need to be able to
clear the marina quickly in case of
fire or pending storm. You must be
able to clear the marina on short
notice otherwise you might be liable
when boats cause damage to other
boats.
2. You could develop a checklist
for a safety and seaworthy inspec-
tion that could be performed upon
initial (within a year) entry.
3. You could also require demon-
stration of seaworthiness by requir-
ing all boats to leave the dock and go
out to the outer marker in the St.
Marys channel once a quarter.
During this event, they would be
required to use their primary propul-
sion systems for the portion of the
trip between marker x and marker
y and return to marker x. This would
mean sailboats would need their rig-
ging and sails in good working
order.
The question is whether these
restrictions coupled with lower
prices would result in higher total
revenue. I believe it would.

Over the past few years, I have

mation about Amelia Island and
nature in general from Pat. I look for-

Slanted
I have noticed that every time
the words News-Leader are printed
in letters the type slants to the right.
This especially caught my attention
when (Commissioner) Mike Boyle
wrote in recently and advised the
News-Leader where the articles that
are written should be placed in the
paper and what the content should
contain. At first I was worried that
Mike Boyle was the editor of the
News-Leader and would continue to
instruct the News-Leader on content,
and lean all type to the right as in
Republican. You have to type to the
left once in awhile.

Jobs for America
It occurred to me as I was sit-
ting on hold with (a satellite TV
provider) that there is something
exceedingly wrong in America. We
have all these people out of work in
this country and here I am, on hold,
and waiting to talk to some person
who speaks questionable English
at best in some foreign country!
Why do we support companies that
do such a thing to our own people?
The thing of it is that most of
these companies are ones we do not
have to do business with. Most of
them we have options on which
company to use for our service. I
will tell you one thing, I never called
Comcast and got someone in
Pakistan or India! Now I do not say
we all need to switch to Comcast, but
I would love to see people, when
choosing a product supplier, ask
where their customer service is
located and are the employees
American.
If we refused to use these com-
panies, it would not be long before
they brought those jobs home...

Deficit meltdown?
How to pay off our national
deficit has been solved and there is
a proposal now on the table. A bill
titled "The Monetary Reform Act"
would be workable but lacks


metaphoric elements like turning
the current debt into frozen money.
Should we embellish the act, to
remind us of monetizing the deficit,
as Alexander Hamilton had once
accomplished and the close call we
had of being sunk by a deficit ice-
berg? Tom Sawyer wouldn't hesitate
to embellish and neither do I.
The steps:
Pay off all the debt with debt-
free U.S. notes (that is to say money,
not interest-carrying bonds).
To avoid the inflation that print-
ing a large quantity of notes causes,
fractional-reserve lending would be
proportionally and simultaneously
converted to full-reserve lending.
Currently the same money is lent to
more than one person. The result is
that 90 percent of all inflationary
pressure comes from fractional-
reserve lending
To remind us of the past the
money to pay off the deficit would be
owned by two agents. The frozen,
never spendable money used to pur-
chase our liberty, thus depicting
Lady Liberty, would be owned by
our progeny. The spendable part
would be tied to the frozen part by
matching serial numbers.

Obama is scary
In a speech given by Barack
Obama on July 2, 2008, entitled "A
New Era of Service" at the
University of Colorado in Colorado
Springs, he said "We cannot contin-
ue to rely only on our military in
order to achieve the national secu-
rity objectives that we've set. We've
got to have a civilian national secu-
rity force that's just as powerful, just
as strong, just as well-funded."
Hitler had the same such force;
it was called the SS.
I am not calling Obama another
Hitler. But I am saying Obama is
changing the face of America faster
than anyone should be able to. It
scares me just how easy and fast he
seems to be able to do it, and almost
no one says anything about it. He
and his staff call anyone that had
anything to do with the Tea parties
a racist. It has nothing to do about
race; it has to do with changing the
face of America.
Seeing a communist sitting side
by side with the president, seeing
czars after czars who answer only to
the president. We are supposed to
have a democratic country. But it
seems that no one in Washington
is listening to us, and we are the
ones that sent them there.
God help us, the next three years
our country is going to go under a
drastic change, I pray the people
don't just lie down and take it. She
needs us now more than ever.

Facts of the matter
Re: I.,i. , of the matter," June
24, written by city building inspector
Fred Lindes.
Obviously, Mr. Lindes did not
review all of his documentation prior
to writing this letter in regards to the
placement of a dollhouse on my
property for my twin five-year-olds.
First and foremost, no one had
claimed to my knowledge that the
city of Fernandina Beach had any-
thing to do with the militant behav-
ior of the homeowner association
that is currently running the facility.
Keep in mind that the city has not
even bothered to check on whether
or not there has been appropriate
premises insurance obtained or
maintained and/or whether or not
each member of the board is bond-
ed or insured for decisions made
by themselves on behalf of this com-
munity. Nor has the city followed
up with my complaints that a faulty
gate may be the cause of my
youngest child's most serious med-
ical problems stemming from a near-
drowning incident in the retention
pond right outside my front door. I
believe it is the city's duty to per-
form such inspections as they have
done to my family and my business.


Please let it be noted that on no
paperwork, to my knowledge, has
there ever been written or stated to
me personally that our dollhouse
did not meet the "set-back" require-
ments. Mr. Lindes states that there
was an investigation, yet the only
proof he has provided the council
and me are black and white dulled
photographs over a fence covering
a car and the dollhouse and his state-
ments from a disgruntled neighbor.
Therefore, Mr. Lindes couldn't pos-
sibly have any knowledge of the
actual placement, the depth, the
building codes, etc., without illegal-
ly being on my property. Mr. Lindes
had declined my offer to do so after
several telephone calls to his office
offering this to him in my presence.
He has even refused to speak to tel-
evision crews and other newspaper
personnel "on record."
Upon his request for engineering
specifications, I immediately sup-
plied the city with what was given to
me by the store in which I ordered
said dollhouse. Now please note that
this facility was being built on sight
and not in store and was being erect-
ed in order to protect my small chil-
dren from the temptation of playing
in the pond that continues to remain
a threat and danger to those around.
I do not recall being asked about
engineering drawings or require-
ments separately from that of what
was given to us to utilize to build. I
supplied what was given, I was never
instructed to provide my own engi-
neer or that the city would have one
provided. Since I do work within the
construction industry there would
have been absolutely no problem in
getting a set reviewed and approved.
Mr. Lindes stated in his third
paragraph that the dollhouse was
in fact placed eight feet off the
ground. Please note for the record
that eight-foot 4x4's were utilized,
but were placed approximately three
feet under ground and cemented,
therefore making the design approx-
imately five feet off the ground and
not his stated eight feet. Upon all
these false allegations I requested
another hearing date or an appeal
date basing my missing the first non-
appearance on my medical surgery.
This was a one-time surgery and
the city was aware of my medical
need by the surgeon himself, yet
they denied my request.
In paragraph three, Mr. Lindes
stated that the city contacted the
engineer of the dollhouse and he
refused to sign off on the changes.
Though it was ordered and not
assembled when delivered, so how
could there be a sign-off of any doc-
uments as the building was yet
unseen? According to Mr. Lindes a
variance was required, though never
to my knowledge did I receive doc-
umentation of this requirement. I
respectfully request Mr. Lindes pro-
vide proof that this was stated to my
person.
Please also note that the docu-
ments I do have in hand, the same
ones that (columnist Joe) Palmer
reviewed, as my files are complete-
ly an open book, there appeared to
be white-out on dates that didn't
even correspond with the stamped
dates, there appeared to be numer-
ous discrepancies on all documen-
tation and yet the city still believes
it can place a lien on my home, yet
release those on the businesses or
persons they have in their favor.
(For example Florida House Inn for
$100,000 and many others costing
the city hundreds of thousands of
dollars.)
Instead of the mediation I
requested, Mr. Lindes has pushed
forward towards litigation, thus
going to cost the citizens additional
monies for a simple child's play
house. I respectfully ask the city to
pull out all their documents on doll-
houses, tree houses, playhouses,
etc., within the county or city, as I,
personally shall show proof and doc-
umentation of several persons who
have never had to go through the
city to put up their tree houses, doll-
houses, playhouse for any such rea-
sons.

Loaded for bear


roaming black bear
to motivate my dawn
hiking jaunts. Ever
since I've heard that a bear
has been spotted on Amelia
Island I've been aching to see
it. But bear hunting is not that
easy, as I've learned.
My inbox and phone mes-
sages had been full of bear
sightings from those fortu-
nate folks at the right place at
the right time all up and down
the island. Once it seemed
clear that the bear was linger-
ing in Fort Clinch State Park I
knew what I had to do. Spend
more time in the park!
So, for a number of days in
a row I hopped out of bed pre-
dawn and headed to Fort
Clinch. Each of my days start-
ed with a glorious sunrise
over the ocean, none the
same, always breathtaking.
One morning I encountered
Sandra Baker-Hinton excavat-
ing an overdue turtle nest and


releasing
remaining
hatchling
loggerheads
to the sea
amid groups
of fascinated
observers.
Another
morning as I
WILD walked the
WAYS beach I
watched the
Navy vessels
Pat lining up to
Foster-Turley guide a sub-
marine into
port at Kings Bay, Ga., always
a treat. Most days I also saw
fishing osprey, gliding peli-
cans, frolicking dolphins, live
sand dollars and sea stars and
all manner of other wonderful
things along my walks. But no
bear.
One morning at Fort
Clinch I got tantalizingly close
to the bear. As I walked
towards the fort I was


stopped by other dawn
strollers who told me the
news. A fellow near the fort
had just spent 10 minutes
watching the bear! I walked
up the beach to the spot as
quickly as I could, only to find
no man, no bear, but lots of
bear tracks.
Walking back to my car
that morning, along an interi-
or park road I saw more signs
of bear. Palm-sized plops with
berries still intact marked the
road. I've walked that road
many times and never seen
droppings like this here
before. Raccoons have a simi-
lar diet, but don't normally
decorate the roads. This ani-
mal did. At least we know the
bear is eating.
Arriving home to check
my email, I found that natural-
ist Carl Watson was the per-
son who watched the bear for
10 minutes that morning. He
too went out especially
"loaded for bear." He correct-
ly inferred from previous
day's bear sightings that the
bear would be in the area
near the fort. He sat on a
bench quietly and the bear
appeared. He was able to
watch the bear for 10 minutes
until the other beach walkers
I met spooked the bear into
the woods. Lucky devil!
The next dawn, ever more
determined to bag by own
bear sighting, I again walked
through the park at dawn,
through the campgrounds,
down the beach, into the
woods, for two hours. Not
even any signs of bear this
time.
Finally, tired and discour-
aged, I got in my car, bear-
less again, and already plan-
ning the next day's bear hunt.


into the woods once again last week.


And then, there ahead of me
on the main road of Fort
Clinch, was the bear! Just as
others had reported, the bear
seemed uninterested in peo-
ple and just going about his
business.
The bear hesitated on the
road only briefly, but long
enough to afford me a couple
of photo shots from my open
car window, before he melted
into the woods, invisible
again.
Floating on euphoria after
"bagging" my bear, I headed
over to T-Ray's for breakfast.
While I was expounding on
my find, another patron
walked in with her own bear
photos taken moments before
mine, while she was also driv-
ing down the Fort Clinch


main road. Small world, isn't
it, here on Amelia Island!
It's a lucky thing I saw the
bear when I did. Our great
small world is wonderful for
people, but maybe just too
small for a bear. On July 29
park visitors reported seeing
a bear on the beach that
jumped into the water and
swam towards Cumberland
Island, Ga. They watched
until the brown speck disap-
peared into the distance.
There were also reports that
a bear was seen Friday swim-
ming in Cumberland Sound
toward Tiger Island.
Inexplicably, though, I also
heard of another bear seen
swimming off the Fort Clinch
beach on Friday, too.
Then there were reports


Monday that a bear had been
captured in St. Marys, Ga.
Our bear?
Who knows? It's a bit like
tracking Elvis, a swimming
Elvis at that! Who knows,
there may even be more than
one bear in our midst. Most
likely our bear sightings are
not yet over for the season.
Maybe there's still time for
you, too, to "bag" your own
bear on Amelia Island. And if
you do see a bear, please let
me know the time and place.
Just maybe together all of us
will finally get to the "bare"
facts!

gist on Amelia Island. Email

County may raise court fees


RYAN SMITH
News Leader
The Nassau County Com-
mission will consider at its Aug.
10 meeting amending an ordi-
nance to allow the Clerk of
Court to double a court sur-
charge, from $15 to $30.
The surcharge applies to
non-criminal traffic infractions
and some criminal violations.
The commission will consider
the amendment at a 7 p.m. pub-
lic hearing at its chambers
inside the James S. Page
Governmental Complex on
Nassau Place in Yulee.


A state law that went into
effect in June allows the sur-
charge to be raised. Any rev-
enue raised by an increase
must be used to fund state
court facilities. It does not
go to into the clerk of court's
budget.
Clerk of Court John
Crawford said Thursday he
doesn't believe the increase is
necessary.
"With the initial $15 (sur-
charge), we're already carry-
ing a cash-forward amount of
$530,395," he said. "The coun-
ty has budgeted in the present
budget year $110,000, of which

they have only spent $15,587 -
thus bringing me to the opinion
that there's not an immediate
need to pass an additional
charge in view of the excess
funds in hand, especially con-
sidering the financial condition
of our citizens."
If the commission does
decide to raise the surcharge,
however, Crawford recom-
mended using the extra rev-
enue for improvements at the
Nassau County Judicial Annex
in Yulee.
"There's a third courtroom
out here on the third floor that's
just a shell. Looking into the


future, we know one day that
we'll have an additional judge,
and we'll need to utilize that
courtroom," he said. "... I think
that in concert with Judge
(Robert) Foster, if the board
decided to pass an additional
surcharge, they should strong-
ly consider encumbering that
money to finish that courtroom
so we don't create any addi-
tional debt for taxpayers when
that day comes."
The Aug. 10 meeting is open
to the public, and citizens wish-
ing to speak for or against the
measure may do so.

Manslaughter
charged
An 18-year-old Bryceville
man has been arrested for DUI
manslaughter and vehicular
homicide.
Jonathan Lee Benischeck,
13246 US 301, was arrested
July 29 and charged with driv-
ing under the influence man-
slaughter, vehicular man-
slaughter and driving while
license suspended or revoked
with death.
His vehicle ran off Roy
Booth Road at 11:35 p.m. Jan.
24 and overturned, partially
ejecting Brian Parsons, 20, of
Callahan, who died. Benis-
check lost control of his 1993
Chevrolet pickup truck as it
approached a curve in the road-
way just north of Rock Trail
about five miles south of
Callahan, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Bomb hoax
A suspected bomb discov-
ered at a local resort July 29
turned out to be a hoax, accord-
ing to the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office.
A loss-prevention officer
found a plastic box in his office
at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia
Island after it fell off the back of
a filing cabinet, police reported.
The officer said he flipped a
switch on top of the box, then
opened it and found a 9-volt
battery, which he disconnect-
ed. According to the report, he
took a photo of the box and


sent it to Tom Gagne, director
of security at The Ritz, who
later brought the box to Nassau
County Fire Rescue Station 20.
A fire lieutenant contacted
the sheriff's office, which
placed the box at the rear of
the station in a secluded spot.
According to the report,
deputies then contacted the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
bomb unit and several build-
ings in the area were evacuat-
ed for public safety and the area
around the fire station was cor-
doned off.
A robot was deployed and
fired a projectile at the box,
breaking it into several pieces.
A Jacksonville bomb unit offi-
cer informed deputies it was a
hoax bomb and did not have
the ability to detonate, accord-
ing to the report. The pieces of
the bomb were recovered and
turned over to the sheriff's
property office.
Death threat
Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies investigated a death
threat July 30 against a resi-
dent of Heron Oaks Court on
the south end of Amelia Island.
The resident told police he
received an e-mail July 28 about
8 p.m. informing him a family
member had been hired to kill
him for $50,000. The e-mail stat-
ed the resident had been
watched for a few days and had
been determined "innocent,"
but a "retirement fee" was
required to stop the killer.
The resident was instructed
to send an e-mail to set up a
date, time and location to meet,
where the resident would
receive photos and tapes of the
person who wanted him killed
in exchange for the fee.
The resident had already
contacted the FBI, according
to the report.

report, several "electrical ped-

Special Olympics


returns to Nassau


BETH JONES
News-Leader
When Special Olympics was
canceled this spring, John
McBrearty saw first-hand the
disappointment on the faces of
the athletes. He and his wife
attend a weekly scripture serv-
ice at Amelia Island Care
Center.
"The clients there are
almost all in wheelchairs and
the thing they look forward to
all year is the Special Olym-
pics," McBrearty said. "When I
heard last year that there
wouldn't be a Special Olympics,
they were really devastated and
so was I.
"I just couldn't see it hap-
pening again this year. So, I
said maybe I could help and
make it happen."
McBrearty, who was one of
the founders of the successful
Amelia Island Runners club, is
now the Nassau County coor-
dinator for Special Olympics
and he's already at work mak-
ing the games a reality this
year.
"What a lot of people don't
know is Special Olympics is a
lot more than just the track and
field event," he said. "It is a
wonderful celebration with all
the pomp and circumstance
and the athletes marching, the
torch run and all the winners
come up and stand on the podi-
um and receive their medals.
There's applause.
'They really love it. It's their
day to shine. They remember it
for weeks afterwards."
McBrearty replaces Bob
Hinton, who volunteered as the
county coordinator the last few
years but recently retired.
McBrearty called his first meet-
ing July 27.
"We had a good discussion
of how things stood with Bob
Hinton and his team,"
McBrearty said. "It turns out,
like I did with the running club
when it first started out, I did
most everything myself. As we
got more people involved, I
could turn things over.
"We have a great thing to
work with. Bob Hinton did a
fabulous job. He also recruit-
ed people in the schools to do
an awful lot of the work. He
arranged for clubs' involve-
ment. They are all very good
participants."


And finding volunteers for
the event is never a problem.
"When we hold the event,
we have more volunteers than
we can use," McBrearty said.
'The only real challenge for me
... I want to put together a man-
agement team, start up some of
the new programs, maybe intro-
duce some team sports, so we
can have a season."
But it's a lot of work,
McBrearty admits. There is a
lot of paper work, from records
to medical certificates for the
athletes.
"The main thing about
Special Olympics is the train-
ing," McBrearty said. "During
the training, you have to keep
records of how well they are
progressing. Before the event,
you have to do divisioning,
based on their skill levels. For
each age group, there may be
four divisions.
"You have to have coaches
and they have to be trained.
You have to keep records and
submit complete records to the
state and have it accepted."
McBrearty is up to the task.
ii i...1-: ,i.'awhile to decide
this was something I could han-
dle," he said. "I thought
through it and talked to people
willing to help, and I think it's
something I can do. We are
already talking about adding
more stuff. I'm looking forward
to it and seeing what we can
do."
McBrearty said the county
bowling championships will be
held Sept. 4 and the track and
field -- , . , II :,.. place again
next February at Fernandina
Beach High School.
"It is a little daunting, getting
county games. Then you go to
area games. Traveling to state
games is really an onerous
path. You have to have one vol-
unteer for every two athletes,"
McBrearty said.
'There are pages of forms to
fill out. Delegation. Volunteers.
They all have to have training
and background checks. There
is an awful lot to it, but we have
time to work on it."
McBrearty is happy with his
decision to take the reins in
Nassau County, but warns, "I'll
be looking for someone to take
over. I won't be around forever."
For information on Special
Olympics, call McBrearty at

Billboard says UT's


Kiff in still talking the talk


University of Tennessee head football
coach Lane Kiffin came off as a
poor man's Dr. Evil last week with
the unveiling of his brilliant idea to
place a billboard somewhere in Florida to
promote the Volunteers. What will be written
on the billboard is apparently top secret.
"Got to give you something to look for-
ward to," Kiffin said, after which he reported-
ly raised a pinky to his mouth and chanted
"Mwahahahahaha."
Lane, you old rascal, you. Always coming
up with such neat ideas.
Seriously, though, what advantage does
Kiffin really expect to gain by putting up a
billboard in the backyard of his biggest SEC
East rival? If the coach is looking for a
recruiting edge, a big sign along the highway
just doesn't seem like the way to go.
Sure, billboards have been mainstays on
the interstates for decades to assist motorists
in deciding between things like hotels or RV
camps, barbecue restaurants or country buf-
fets, theme parks or water parks. But I'm not
sure that the majority of travelers along 1-95
or 1-75 in Florida often contemplate where
their kids will play college football more so
than they do how much four days at Disney
and three sets of mouse ears are going to
cost.
If anything, the billboard could serve to
liven up the can of worms Kiffin opened
against Florida when he falsely accused head
coach Urban Meyer of a recruiting violation
shortly after taking the Tennessee job. Not as
if the Gators needed any reminder of who
their opponent will be Sept. 19.
By the way, there has reportedly already
been a billboard raised in Atlanta to bolster
Tennessee ticket sales bearing the catch
phrase, "It's Time." That might be the most
intelligent statement from the Tennessee
camp since Kiffin took over. Because most
would agree that it is indeed time to witness
Tennessee try to walk the walk after so many
months of its coach talking the talk...
When Florida QB Tim Tebow showed up
at the ESPY Awards a few weeks ago wearing
glasses, images of Superman's alter ego,
Clark Kent, came immediately to mind.


Turns out it wasn't an act or
a fashion statement. Tebow
really is near sighted but
chooses not to wear specta-
cles or contact lenses during
games. So there you have it,
a weakness. Wonder if it
affects his X-ray vision ...
Florida WR Riley Cooper
has reportedly still not let it
be known whether or not he
SPORTS will return to the Gators for
his senior year or focus on
TALK Major League Baseball with
the Texas Rangers, who
JOHN L drafted him in the 25th
CRAWFORD round.
.... Some have speculated
Cooper might decide to sign
with the Rangers and play football for Florida.
But the longer he goes without making his
intentions known, the more it seems that he
might have already put the Gators in his
rearview mirror.
Wide receiver is already considered
Florida's weak link with the departures of
Percy Harvin and Louis Murphy from last
year's BCS championship team. Having to
replace Cooper, who had a penchant for com-
ing up with clutch plays in big games last sea-
son, will make an already unenviable task for
Meyer and company that much more diffi-
cult. Not to mention that it will undoubtedly
call for immediate production from freshman
Andre Debose, whom Meyer probably would
have rather eased into action. We will likely
see early on how accurate the Debose-Harvin
comparisons really were. Because Harvin,
fans will remember, hit the ground running at
Florida...
Final thought: Florida basketball coach
Billy Donovan is reportedly eyeing 18-year-
old Israeli point guard Nimrod Tishman as

Sailfish repe<

The McArthur Family YMCA Sailfish cap-
tured back-to-back titles July 25, winning by
more than 500 points in the 2009 YMCA of
Florida's First Coast Swimming Championships
at the Barco-Newton Family YMCA in Orange
Park.
The action started on a sizzling Friday after-
noon as the six-and-under and eight-and-under
swimmers hit the water. The smallest Sailfish
stood tall, reached for the wall and delivered a
200-point lead to their older teammates at the end
of the day.
Eight-and-under girls Ciera Wilcox and Taylor
Radcliffe dominated the field, setting three meet
records (100-yard individual medley and 25-yard
breaststroke for Wilcox and 25-yard freestyle
for Radcliffe) and finishing first and second,
respectively, in the high-points awards for their
age group.
Eight-and-under boys Evan Crayton (25-yard
freestyle) and Jonah Braeger (100-yard individ-
ual medley) added their own meet records and
Crayton brought home the high points award for
the eight-and-under boys.

place finishes and meet
records.
The 10-and-under, 11-12, 13-
14 and senior swimmers took
the pool by storm the next day.
Determined to build their lead,
the Sailfish continued to turn in
personal bests and hard-fought
finishes across the board.
Maisie Gooch set a meet
record in the 10-and-under 50-
yard backstroke and brought
home the high-points runner-
up trophy. Not to be outdone by
their younger counterparts, the
10-and-under girls' freestyle
relay team (Lexie Sutton,
Lindsey DeLille, Faith Leipau,
and Gooch) outstroked the
competition and set another
meet record.
In 11-12 girls, Jasmine Duke
(50 freestyle) and Colette
Murphy (50 breastroke) set
meet records and Duke tied
with teammate Zoe Stein for
the 11-12 girls' high-point run-
ner-up award. Juan Cardenas,
13, turned in another strong
performance, setting a meet
record in the 200 individual
medley.
Ten Sailfish swimmers
placed in the top three in all of
their individual events. Jared
Smith, Stein, Katy Weaver and
Thomas Seidel ended the day
with three medals each, join-
ing record-setters Wilcox,
Radcliffe, Crayton, Gooch,
Duke and Cardenas.
Finishing the season in
grand style, Sailfish swimmers
chalked up a total of 10 A times,
32 BB times and 48 B times.
"From the first swimmers
in the water to the last, each
member of the team compet-
ed with pride, honor and deter-
mination, giving their all to
bring victory to the McArthur
Family YMCA," Coach Mary
Donn Bowman said.
"It was indeed not only one
but two great days to be a
Sailfish. Of course, if you ask
any one of them, they will say
every day is a great day to be a
Sailfish."

Individual, team



wins for Johnson


Don't know whether it was
the heat, the threat of rain or
players out of town, but the
last week in July saw a rela-
tively small turnout for the
blitz as 48 players came out
on Wednesday and 41 on
Friday.
On Wednesday play began
with clear skies, but in the
middle of the round, Mother
Nature put on quite a display
of rolling thunder and light-
ning flashes and play was
halted for about 20 minutes.
Steve Johnson took individual
honors with a 75, good for
plus 7 points. Seven players
tied for second and third at
plus 5 - D.D. Miller (93),
Mitch Purvis (85), Tom
Roberts (80), Hydie Peterson
(75), Bob Sibley (85), Doug
Morris (90) and PW. Nobles
(82).
With Johnson (plus 7) and
Morris (plus 7) on the same
team their total was enough
to offset the minus 3 of Bob
Dorsey (85) and Dennis
Moorehead (84, even) to win
first place at plus 9.
Second place also had a
minus 3 by Walter Boyd (91),
but had three pluses with T.
Roberts( plus 5), Hydie
Peterson (plus 5) and Doug
Wolfe (89, plus 1) as the team
finished at plus 8.
Third place at plus 5 went
to Nobles (plus 5), Kenny
Pickett (82, plus 4), Sammy
Alvarez (80, minus 1) and
Gerald Wilder (86, minus 1).
D.D. Miller's plus 5 was
helped by the plus 4 of Paul
Hensler (85) and it was good
enough to overcome the
minus 4 of Terry Lacoss (82)
and the minus 1 of Michael
Kaufman (95) as the team
came in fourth at plus 4.
On Friday play was once
again interrupted in the mid-
dle of the round by Mother
Nature. The storm wasn't
nearly as loud or punctuated
by lightning as it was on
Wednesday and, when play
was resumed, it was Bo
Alvarez who turned in the
round of the week with a six-
under-par 67 and plus 10
points to win individual hon-
ors. Steve Johnson had anoth-
er good outing as he shot a 74
and plus 8 points to come in

second. There was a tie at
plus 6 for third place between
Evan Wiseman (83) and
Larry Brauda (81).
An all-plus team, which
included Johnson (plus 8),
Wiseman (plus 6), Simon
Carter (77, plus 5) and Ron
Dandurand (81, plus 4), ran
away from the field with a
great score of plus 23.
In a distant second place at
plus 6 was the team led by
Ron Peterson (84, plus 5) and
included Jim Roberts (77,
plus 2), Carl O'Rourke (80,
plus 1) and Jim Raffone (90,
minus 2).
Third place at plus 2 went
to the team of Brauda (plus
6), Larry Luett (80, plus 1),
Tom Roberts (81, minus 3)
and Larry Gallo (92, minus 2)
Bo Alvarez (plus 10) got
just enough help from John
Bray (82, plus 3) to offset the
minus 7 by Claude Hartley
(99) and the minus 5 of
Tommy Shave (78) to finish at
plus 1 and share fourth place
with Frank Finocchio (82,
plus 4), Rob Maynard (82,
even), Dave Mudd (90, even),
Rudy Campanale (101, minus
3) and Roger Smith (81, plus
3), Mike Joyce (one-under-par
72, plus 1), Lind Swenson (89,
minus 1), newlywed Mickey
Rushton (87, minus 2).

Twenty-eight players came
out to take part in the
Saturday Morning Breakfast
Mixer with Harry Kegler
emerging as the overall win-
ner with an 81 and plus 9
points. Jack Croake (86) and

Drew DeAngelo, flanked by Fernandina Beach High School coaches Joshua Dunn, left, and Dan Snyder, will be
attending the University of Charleston in West Virginia on a soccer scholarship. DeAngelo is a recent graduate of
FBHS and is the fourth Pirate currently playing soccer on the collegiate level.

Drew DeAngelo knows the importance
of good grades. He was sidelined his soph-
omore and junior seasons because his
grade point average was too low to play for
the Fernandina Beach High School boys
soccer team.
"I didn't like the way I was leading," he
said. "I didn't get to play soccer for the
high school. I was letting everyone down.
I wanted to play. I didn't want to do that
anymore."
DeAngelo worked hard and brought up
the GPA so he could play his senior sea-
son with the Pirates. Now, he'll be playing
in college.
"I didn't think I was going to go to col-
lege," DeAngelo said.
DeAngelo received a scholarship to
play at the University of Charleston, the
capitol of West Virginia.
"It's not a full ride, but it's helping a lot,"
DeAngelo said.
"It was late in the process of recruiting
and, with a division two, you are actually
able to go practice with them. So he was
able to show his skills," FBHS Coach

Roland Thatcher briefly shared the lead at 17-under after

the outright lead after 54 holes. His four victories this season are double
the total of his nearest competitor.


I We are used to seeing shots that
J slice or draw when we hit them with
, our irons, but another common prob-
lem is a shot that goes to the right
and does not curve. This is generally
termed a push and usually occurs
'1i when you are trying to make an
aggressive swing. The crux of the problem, for right-
handed golfers, is in the left forearm and there is a
simple solution to stop the push. When you get too
aggressive with a swing, the left forearm tightens up
immensely and the end result is a club face that is
open at impact. The problem also arises if we grip
the club too tightly during a swing. Take an iron out
and hold it straight in front of you with only a left hand
grip. Then, tighten your left forearm and watch the
club face open up. The simple fix is to stay relaxed
and a straighter shot at the target will result.


Playing for the sixth straight week on a road trip that has taken him to five coun- -
tries, John Daly felt as though he hit rock bottom last Friday after shooting an
88 in the second round of the Buick Open. "The last two weeks have been the '__
first time in my career I didn't think I could win," Daly said. "I don't have the feel I1 ,-
used to have. I don't have the confidence. I just don't have it. I tried my tail off and\
shot 88. I've thrown in the towel and shot 82 when I quit. But I didn't quit this time. It
was a weird feeling." Daly hit two balls out-of-bounds on the par-5 first hole, his 10th hole of the
second round, and took a 10. He wound up shooting 51 on his back nine for a 16-over88. His swing
coach, Rick Smith, described Daly as being in a "toxic state", which Smith attributed to massive
weight loss, not enough sleep and the wrong kind of diet.

FA fish haven


"We used to fish at FA reef
with a 20-foot wooden boat
powered by twin 20-horse
power outboards," Robert
Hart remembers. 'This was
during the early 1970s when
only a handful of boats ven-
tured out to FA reef. Some of
the fishermen who fished FA
reef that I can remember
were Sam Dubose, Eber
Philips Sr. and Jr. and my dad,
Bob Hart.
"Back in those days, we
never entered the big
Jacksonville kingfish tourna-
ment, but often fished during
the same days the tourna-
ment was running and often
caught bigger kings than won
the tournament."
Hart enjoyed the hey day
of fishing FA fish haven, also
called the Fernandina
Snapper Grounds, and locat-
ed some eight miles south-
east of the St. Marys jetty
rocks.
In fact, many deep-sea fish-
ermen did not have the luxu-
ry of a GPS on board to guide
them to their favorite FA hard
bottom or ledge. A compass
reading was used when navi-
gating from the St. Marys
jetty rocks and they estimated
the time it took to run to FA
reef.
Once these early day FA
fishermen reached the reef,
they would look for baitfish
schools feeding close to the
surface, large turtles on the
surface or slick areas in the
surface of the ocean that indi-
cated a rise in the bottom as
the current passed over the
structure.
'There was also no boat
towing services back in those
days," Robert Hart remem-
bers. "We all looked out for
ourselves. I remember
trolling under a boat that we
were towing in more than one
instance when a real scream-
er would hit and we would
have to drop the boat that we
were towing to catch our fish.
"One summer during the
late '70s, there was a Russian
ship that anchored at FA reef
and frequently motored to the
area where we were catching
kingfish just to watch us load
the boat with kings. Their
crew lined the rails to watch."
When fishing wasn't so
good at FA reef, Bob Hart
and many of those early day
deep-sea fishermen would
troll the nearby St. Marys
shipping channel with blue


Rebel plugs.
"A per-
fect pass
close to a
channel
buoy would
result in the
line coming
in contact
with the
OUTDOORS buoy cable,
forcing the
TerryLacoss plug to come
to the sur-
face where it was frequently
chomped in half by one of
those toothy characters," Bob
Hart said. "One day I was
fishing with Jim Oliver when
a king slammed a spoon and
took off harder than ever
before, then headed for the
surface, then the fishing line
went slack.
'The largest striped wahoo
or barracuda cleared the
water by more than its body
length. I reeled in about five
pounds of what had been
approximately a 20-pound
king mackerel. Seeing this
sight made me feel pretty
uncomfortable during the
rest of the day."
During an early fishing
trip to FA reef, Robert Hall
and his fishing party looked
deep under the boat and
watched a huge whale shark
come closer to see the boat
and fishermen.
"On yet another fishing
trip to FA reef, we saw a giant
hammerhead shark that
looked to be every bit as long
as our 19-foot boat," David
Hart remembers. "I wanted to
try and hook the big hammer-
head shark but Dad wouldn't
let me. Imagine that.
"Catching a sailfish one
day at FA reef with Gene
Lasserre aboard the
'Smuggler' was something
else. Yellow tandem hook jigs
adorned with kingfish belly
strips saved from the previ-
ous fishing trip skipped past
the jetties at dawn or overcast
day for kingfish. Now that's
an old school kingfish tip if
there ever was one."
Bob Hart and his fishing
partners ventured offshore in
all sorts of weather, often
waiting for a passing shrimp
boat to tuck behind until they
passed the jetties.
While the old saying,
"don't go fishing with Bob
Hart unless you really want to
go fishing" are more stories
to be told.

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, 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

Beaufort proves to be the perfect nearby getaway


The Big Guy and I set off for an
escape weekend. Call it a mini-vaca-
tion. We did not have to go far to find
ourselves mesmerized by the charm
of another island community further
north. Beaufort, S.C., is a gem.
In many ways it reminded us of
our own home island, only the old
houses are older. Blocks and blocks
of elegant antebellum homes stretch
for blocks, neatly nestled along the
river. Each is sheltered by broad
green umbrellas of beautiful aging
oaks. We found a wonderfully friend-
ly community that welcomed us at
every turn.
Beaufort was known as the most
aristocratic town of its size before the
Civil War. Called the Queen of the
Carolina Sea Islands, it was first dis-
covered by the Spanish in 1514 and
chartered by the British in 1711. It
was a center of commerce with its
indigo, rice and Sea Island cotton
plantations. Its charm remains.


It feels like a
Hollywood set and
has, in fact, been
one. It offers the
9 penultimate
Southern scene.
Spanish moss drip-
ping off ancient
oaks, dignified
columns holding
FROM up broad porches
THE reaching across the
PORCH large white aging
matrons of
Beaufort. In fact it
Dickie is so perfect, the
Anderson moviemakers have
come to town to
film such movie favorites as "The
Prince of Tides," "Forrest Gump"
and "The Big Chill."
Big Guy planned the weekend
and he did a great job finding our
charming and comfortable bed and
breakfast, the Rhett Inn. No, it was


not named for the famous character
in Gone with the Wind, but an old
Beaufort family. The charming inn, a
restored 1820 home, is close to Bay
Street, Beaufort's main street.
We learned that the Harrisons,
current owners of the inn, also fell in
love with the charismatic little town
on the river and it forever changed
their lives. They call it their mid-life
opportunity.
They traded the hectic, high-pow-
ered world of fashion and New York
City for the ultimate Southern expe-
rience. They would remodel an old
inn and run a bed and breakfast.
They took their world traveling
experiences and set out to bring the
best of the best to their new proper-
ty. They wanted to create an inn
that would reflect elegance and com-
fort with the amenities of a small,
luxurious hotel and personalized
service of a sophisticated bed and
breakfast inn.


In the earliest days the couple
lived in the house and were the full
staff. The inn has grown from 5 to 17
rooms and the Harrisons maintain a
cottage behind the main house.
Some of the inn's more famous
guests have included Robert
Redford, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin
Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick. Barbra
Streisand and Nick Nolte were
guests during the filming of "Prince
of Tides." The Harrisons are always
quick to add that every guest is
famous in their eyes.
We took day excursions to the
beautiful parks and Fripp Island. We
passed the shrimping business
where "Forrest Gump" was filmed.
We visited Parris Island. Once a site
of Spanish forts, Parris Island
became a naval station in 1876 and a
prison in 1906. In 1915 the island
became the recruit training station
for the U.S. Marines. Parris Island is
legend to those who know and


respect military discipline. The
Marines that have and do train there
go on to become great heroes and
leaders. A military museum is open
to the public on the base.
We absorbed ourselves in the
ambiance of another place and time
and marveled at the high level of
maintenance that each of the historic
homes enjoys. Our time was spent
exploring on our own and enjoying
two lovely dinners at restaurants rec-
ommended by the inn.
Our weekend away filled the bill.
We escaped to another place and
time and enjoyed a much-needed
break in our routine. Beaufort is a
must-stay for those who love history,
Southern charm and small-town
friendliness.
Dickie Anderson welcomes your

AIMS earns vaunted accreditation


For the News-Leader

The Amelia Island
Montessori School (AIMS)
has been educating young
people on Amelia Island for
more than 35 years. In May,
the school received accredi-
tation from the Florida Council
of Independent Schools, plac-
ing it in company with the
most reputable private schools
in North Florida- schools like
Bolles, Episcopal High and
Jacksonville Country Day.
AIMS is the only school in
Nassau County that has
earned this accreditation.
AIMS has already been
accredited by the Florida
Kindergarten Council, licen-
sed by the Department of
Children and Families and
maintains a membership with
the American Montessori
Society.
The foundational concept
for AIMS began with a group
of parents who knew instinc-
tively that a child-centered
approach to learning would
allow their children to achieve
their own innate potential.
After visiting several Montes-
sori schools and studying the
writings of Dr. Maria Montes-
sori, the group decided to
build AIMS, which opened in
the fall of 1973 with 25 stu-
dents.
Their choice of a Montes-
sori school came from a desire
to see their children in a place
where educational ideals were
supported by sound research.
The Montessori philosophy of
education is derived from the
lifetime of research and prac-
tice of Montessori (1870-
1952), an Italian physician who
used her scientific observa-
tions of children to rethink tra-
ditional approaches to educa-
tion. Montessori was inspired
by the children's almost effort-

School for Amelia Island
Montessori School, with

cate from the Florida
Council of Independent
Schools.


less ability to absorb knowl-
edge from their surroundings,
as well as their tireless interest
in manipulating materials.
Every piece of equipment,
every exercise, every method
Montessori developed was
based on what she observed
children to do "naturally," by
themselves, unassisted by
adults.
Montessori capitalized on
the natural phenomenon of
"sensitive" periods - specific
times when children are more
open to learning specific con-
cepts. Since the timing of
these periods is unique to
each child, Montessori
focused on developing a class-
room environment that allow-
ed each child to work with
materials that enhanced pro-
gress in that specific area of
learning. Her followers includ-
ed American luminaries like
Thomas Edison, Helen Keller,
Alexander Graham Bell, and
President Woodrow Wilson.
In more recent years,
Montessori schools are
responsible for nurturing


young people who went on to
do great things. The founders
of Google, Larry Page and
Sergey Brin, cite their
Montessori education as a key
component to their success.
Other notable Montessori fol-
lowers include Jacqueline
Kennedy Onassis, Julia Child,
Nobel Prize-winning novelist
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Anne
Frank, Prince William and
Prince Harry and T. Berry
Brazelton, noted pediatrician
and author.
Today, Amelia Island
Montessori School is a model
of Montessori's principles in
action. AIMS currently has a
student body of more than 100
children, ages 18 months to
12 years, and a faculty of ded-
icated educators whose com-
mitment to nurturing and edu-
cating young people is
evidenced by the growth and
confidence of their students.
Step inside any AIMS class-
room and you will see the the-
ory in practice: the classroom
is orderly; the students are
quietly absorbed in their learn-
ing tasks and the adults direct
and enhance the work chosen
by each child. Guided by stu-
dent interest, the teachers rec-
ognize and facilitate learning
within each child's "sensitive"
period of learning. Since
AIMS is housed near the
offices of the Amelia Island
Plantation beneath oaks and
lush foliage, each classroom is
also supplemented with a rich
outdoor environment where
children learn about every-
thing from nature and gar-
dening to the environment
and conservation.

accredited schools, go to

an interest in having a univer-

It is the organization's dream
to have a place to play in
Northeast Florida for people of
all abilities and ages. The park
design takes local history, art
and nature into consideration.
The project has been granted
use of land by the city of
Fernandina next to Atlantic


Avenue Recreation Center, and
designs have been produced by
a landscape architect with expe-
rience designing accessible
playgrounds. Supporters are in
the fundraising stages of this
project.
Anyone is encouraged to
apply - the only qualification is
that you must share the dream
to have a place to play for people
of all abilities.
