Health care




forum testy


RYAN SMITH
News Leader
Tempers flared at a health care
forum at Florida State College's Betty
P Cook Nassau Center Thursday.
The forum, hosted by State Rep.
Janet Adkins, brought together
health care professionals to discuss
President Barack Obama's attempt to
reform health insurance. While both
supporters and detractors of the gov-
ernment's plan were on the panel,
the audience at times became open-
ly hostile to those who supported a
public option plan.
"Health care reform is an impor-
tant issue.... Our goal here tonight is
to share as much information as we
have," Adkins said. "... We don't
intend this to be a partisan event.
We've reached out to both sides of
the aisle."
"The goals for tonight are that we
want to have a rich and respectful
dialogue about the effects of health
care reform on Northeast Florida,"
said forum moderator Dr. Dawn
Emerick of the Health Planning
Council of Northeast Florida.
Panel member Dr. Jim Mayo of
Baptist Medical Center Nassau said
reform was urgently needed.
"Why are we talking about health
care reform? We have two very large
problems in this country. One is that
the cost of health care continues to
rise faster than the gross national

care system ... in the
developed world. By any
indicator our health care
system has failed.'

product," he said. "Something has to
be done about the cost of health care.
Item number two: Last year over 48
million people went without health
care through some part of the year.
... That's why the American Hospital
Association has - long before this
election - said we need health care
reform.
"Quite frankly, from my perspec-
tive - and it's not a business per-
spective, it's a moral one - it is moral-
ly unconscionable to leave people in
the kind of lurches we are," he added.
Health care consultant Dr. Bill
Amos was against the government
plan, as was Robin Lumb, health care
policy analyst for the Duval County
Republican Party.
"We have problems with health
care in this country, and there are
some solutions at both the state and
federal level if people would just get

Learning to cope


with a stroke


RYAN SMITH
News Leader
"I had just come home from
work," Rick Davis says. "Before din-
ner I was downstairs in the family
room trying to decide whether I was
going to read the paper or watch the
news on television. All of a sudden the
room started spinning, like I was so
drunk I was going to fall down.
"I knew there was something real-
ly wrong."
Davis is a hale and healthy fellow
in his mid-60s. He's trim and fit, with
a handshake like a vise. Shaking that
hand, you'd never know that only a
few years ago, it took an almost super-
natural effort merely for Davis to lift
his arm. Listening to that clear, strong
voice, you'd never know that only a
few years ago, Davis could barely
speak.
Because on Dec. 21, 2000, Davis
suffered a stroke.
"It was totally unexpected," Davis
says. "I had no idea that I was at risk

Davis is sitting at a sidewalk table
outside a coffee shop. But he is not
drinking coffee. He will never be able
to drink coffee again.
The Fernandina Beach resident
is telling his story because he wants
other stroke victims to know they're
not alone - to know there are
resources available to them.
Specifically, he wants them to know
about the Amelia Island Stroke

Cotillions inspire


courtesy, character


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
The word "cotillion" brings to
mind images of debutants in white
gowns being presented to society,
escorted by handsome young men in
tuxedos.
The National League of Junior
Cotillions is about much more than
young ladies and gentlemen at a
dance. It's also about training young
people in character and social edu-
cation.
A chapter of the National League
of Junior Cotillions (NLJC) designed
to build self-confidence, character,
social education and good citizen-
ship is forming for Nassau County
at this time.
"I'm just really excited to bring
this awareness to the community and
offer something to the children that
they can benefit from not just now but
in life skills," said program director
Lynn Dempsey.
"These days, it's becoming more


important to have the manners and
the social graces to balance the kids
out."
The first chapter of what is now
the NLJC was established in North
Carolina in 1979 and the expansion of
the program founded by Charles and
Anne Winters began in 1989.
Today, thousands of students are
being taught etiquette, ethics and
social dance in hundreds of cotillion
programs presented by chapters in
more than 30 states.
"The program has been around
for 30 years and it's very structured.
A lot of time has been spent perfect-
ing and refining the organization and
the program."
A few of the life skills students
learn in local chapters are first
impressions, introductions, greetings
and shaking hands, paying and
receiving compliments, correspon-
dence, telephone manners, family
dining, table manners, polite con-

State



probes



care



center
SIAN PERRY
News Leader
The state is investigating allega-
tions of poor patient treatment at
Amelia Island Care Center a year after
threatening to close the facility after it
essentially failed its annual inspection.
"We are looking into the situation at
Amelia Island Care Center," said
Shelisha C. Durden, public information
officer at the state Agency for Health
Care Administration, after it received
e-mail complaints from a worker at the
70-bed facility located at 2700 Atlantic
Ave. in Fernandina Beach. The center
also operates a day-care for clients at
329 S. Eighth St.
An inspection was conducted Aug.
25, said Durden, however, "the inves-
tigation report is not final. We have
10 business days to finalize the report
and get it to the provider. Once we
receive the facility's Plan of Correction
we can release the investigation
report."
While Durden said "there are no
plans to close the facility at this time,"
if the state feels patient welfare is at
risk, "we would work with the appro-
priate agencies to make sure each res-
ident is safely relocated to another
facility."
J. Dawson, head of facilities opera-
tions for the center, said Monday, "As
of now there have been three or four
different state agencies to come in and
investigate and so far none of (the alle-
gations) have been substantiated ...
I'm at a loss for words."
As for the Agency for Health Care
Administration, "The state hasn't sent
us the results (of the report) to make
a correction," Dawson said, adding,
"Obviously we are providing the best
standard of care ... that we possibly
can."
However, the worker e-mails allege
poor patient treatment, including nine
people with gaping bedsores and one
with a suspected case of Methicillin
Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, or
MRSA, a potentially dangerous type
of staph bacteria resistant to certain
antibiotics. Other allegations include
lack of proper (. 1.i h. _.. hygiene, ther-
apy and nutrition for clients of the facil-
ity, many of whom are profoundly phys-
ically and mentally disabled.
Connie Akins, resident services
manager, worked at Amelia Island Care
Center until Aug. 24, when she says
she was fired for questioning the care
of the patient with the suspected staph
infection. The official reason for her
termination was "performing job duties
not in her scope," said Akins. She is dis-
puting the action.
According to a letter from Akins to
center administrator Sharon Jamison,
"I went into (the patient's) room gloved
and viewed her wound, her bandage
was loose and gapping. I saw the open
wound on her back about the size of a
quarter and pus coming out. Also red-
ness about two inches surrounding
the wound. When I spoke to (the nurs-
es in charge) they said that they did not
know for sure if it was (MRSA) or not,
but they were treating her as if it was.
I asked about what would it take for
them to have her placed in the hospi-
tal and was told if she had a tempera-
ture along with her other symptoms."
Akins says the patient was in obvi-
ous pain but did not receive anything
stronger than Tylenol. She said the
woman also did not receive what the
Mayo Clinic lists as the current rec-
ommended treatment, the antibiotic
Vancomycin, and that her roommate
was not relocated or caretakers prop-
erly protected, despite the high risk
of the infection spreading in such a
setting.

Feelings of hopelessness appear to be
associated with increased thickening of
neck arteries in healthy, middle-aged
women, while apathy among stroke sur-
vivors appears common and may impede
recovery, according to two unrelated
studies reported in Stroke: Journal of the
American Heart Association.
Researchers from the University of
Minnesota in Minneapolis said hopeless-
ness - negative thinking and feelings of
uselessness - affects arteries independ-
ent of clinical depression and other
known cardiovascular risk factors before
women develop clinically relevant cardio-
vascular disease. The study found:
* A consistent, progressive and linear
association between increasing carotid
artery intimal-medial thickness (IMT)
and rising hopelessness.
* The overall difference in arterial
thickening between women with higher
versus lower hopelessness scores, about
.02 ,!111,ii.1..i..-i (mm), was equal to about
one year of thickening.
* Those with the highest hopelessness
scores had an average .06 mm greater
thickening than those in the lowest group
- a "potentially clinically significant" dif-
ference, according to the authors. This
correlation remained after adjusting for
any influence of age, race, income, car-
diovascular risk factors and depression.
"Previous studies have shown that
hopelessness is associated with cardio-


vascular disease out-
comes in men and
also in women with
documented heart
disease. However,
this is the first study
to -.,y w i'.. ili'.l hope-
lessness may be relat-
ed to subclinical cardiovascular disease in
women without clinical symptoms of
heart disease and who are generally
healthy," said Susan A. Everson-Rose,
Ph.D., M.PH., senior author of the study,
associate director of the Program in
Health Disparities Research and associ-
ate professor of medicine at the
University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
'These findings I..--N..-.i ilni women
who experience feelings of hopelessness
may have greater risk for future heart
disease and stroke," she said. "In fact, our
data indicate that hopelessness may be
uniquely related to cardiovascular dis-
ease risk. We did not see similar relations
when looking at global depressive symp-
toms."
Researchers used data from Chicago
and Pittsburgh sites of the Study of
Women's Health Across the Nation
(SWAN) to examine associations of hope-
lessness and depressive symptoms with
carotid IMT, an early marker of athero-
sclerosis. They looked at 559 women
(average age 50, 62 percent white, 38 per-
cent African American) without clinical
cardiovascular disease.
They measured hopelessness with a

two-item questionnaire assessing
expectancies regarding future and per-
sonal goals. Depressive symptoms were
measured with the 20-item Center for
Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale.
IMT was assessed with ultrasound of the
carotid arteries.
The study was partially funded by the
National Institutes of Health.
In an unrelated one-year study of apa-
thy in first-time stroke patients,
researchers at McGill University in
Montreal said half of all survivors experi-
ence some apathy and even "minor apa-
thy" impedes recovery.
Compared to survivors with "low apa-
thy," those with "minor," "high," "worsen-
ing" or "improving" apathy scored lower
on physical function, participation, health
perception and overall physical health.
"Apathy is generally understudied in
stroke patients, but we found that even
relatively low levels can seriously impede
recovery," said Nancy E. Mayo, Ph.D.,
lead author of the study and the James
McGill Professor in the Department of
Medicine.
In the study, family members rated
stroke survivors' interest in activities by
using statements such as the survivor
"waits for someone to do things that
he/she can do for self' and stroke sur-
vivor "just sits and watches." The study is
the first to use family members to rate
apathy levels among stroke survivors.
The Canadian Stroke Network funded
the research.

off their butts and do what
they need to do - but what's
going on at the federal level is
not the answer," Amos said.
Lumb called for massive
deregulation of the health
insurance industry, saying a
free-market approach would
reform the problems with the
current system.
'The fact is that health care
is one of the most federally
regulated areas in the coun-
try," he said.
Dr. Jeff Goldhagen, chief
of the University of Florida's
Department of Community
Pediatrics, disagreed. "We
have the worst health care sys-
tem ... in the developed world,"
he said. "By any indicator, our
health care system has failed.
We're 30th in longevity in the
developed world. We have the
worst child health care out-
come of any country in the
developed world.
"For $2.5 trillion (per year),
we're buying the worst child
health care outcomes in the
developed world, and you're
buying yourself five to seven
years less at the end of your
life. If that's what the American
people want, that's what the
American people get."
Lumb insisted that less reg-
ulation would correct many of
the system's current ills "I
approach this from a perspec-
tive. I don't consider myself a
partisan, necessarily," he said.
"I'm a free-market conserva-
tive. ... The assertion that the
U.S. health care system per-
forms poorly - that is based
on a study by the World Health
Organization, which is a
branch of the U.N. - which
has a political agenda."
"Free-market competition
is the only way to drive down
health care costs," he said.
"The solution to insurance
companies we don't like is to
punish them with competi-
tors."

At the conclusion of
Lumb's presentation, Emerick
invited other panelists to
respond.
"I agree with quite a lot of
what Mr. Lumb said. One of
the things I agree with is that
he has no experience in health
care," Mayo said.
Mayo scoffed at the idea
that free-market principles
could automatically reform
health care. "In a real market,
there is no such thing as 'fair'.
... There is only what is. The
reason we've never been able
to establish a market in health
care is that it's very, very
expensive," he said. "If you're
dealing with just a market, the
market will say if you can pay
for it, you get it. If you can't pay
for it, you don't get it. If you get
it you live, if you don't get it
you die, and fairness doesn't
come into it.
'The question is not, 'How
do we set up a market in health
care,' but, 'How do we set up a
health care system that gives
people care when they need
it?'" he added. "The issue of
getting to a market is not text-
book. It's real people, it's real
lives. It's somebody waking up
and finding a lump, and not
doing anything about it
because they can't afford it."

Panelist Mary Beth
Senkewicz, deputy commis-
sioner of the Florida Office of
Insurance Regulation, said
Obama's health care plan
would guarantee coverage.
"We have issues with the sys-
tem that exists today," she
said. "From an insurance per-
spective, what the bills do ... is
(insurers) cannot turn you
down. They eliminate preex-
isting conditions."
An audience member
asked why a public option -
health insurance through the
government - should be trust-
ed.
"I think any program that
would require people to go to
a public option plan would be
a wrong thing to do, but a pub-
lic option could be anything
that works," Mayo said. "...
People should have the option
to go into it if they want to go
into it."
"We shouldn't trust it, and
we shouldn't trust any private
plan that doesn't put the
patient in the driver's seat,"
Amos said.
"The public option is the
fast track to universal health
care," Lumb said. "There is no
other logical reading of the
bill."

"I suppose you could say at
least for this client, I felt I need-
ed to be her advocate, to speak
for her when she could not
speak," Akins wrote in her let-
ter.
The latest allegations come
after a routine inspection of the
Amelia Island Care Center last
September found such serious
threats to the health and safety
of its clients that the facility was
put on notice it would be closed
in 23 days if the problems were
not fixed, according to records
of the Agency for Health Care
Administration.
The infractions are detailed
in a 113-page report posted on
the agency's website at
ahcaxnet.fdhc.state.fl.us/dm_w
eb.
The center failed to provide
proper "active treatment serv-
ices" and health care for a core
sample of clients, "which result-
ed in a situation of ongoing
immediate and serious threat
to the health and safety of the
clients residing in the facility,"
the report stated.
Ultimately the problems
were rectified, according to
records of the case, but not until
Nov. 26 and only after return
visits by state officials.
Infractions ranged from multi-
ple instances of poor client
hygiene to improper drug
administration/plans and viola-
tions of privacy rights.
For example, the inspectors
noted a 8- by 4-inch wound on
one client's buttocks that was
not properly treated, and using
restraints and giving psy-
chotropic drugs such as
klonopin to another severely
retarded patient without the
guardian's knowledge or con-
sent. Another client had a lump
on their head about the size of
an egg after falling from the toi-
let while left unattended, but
the guardian was never notified,
the report stated.
Review of another client's
records showed that person had

Other infractions included
lapsed contracts for a dietician

facility - the dietician's had
expired in August 1998 and the
therapist's in June 2007. "There
was no additional information

Additionally, a routine

Health was "unsatisfactory."

Amelia Island Care Center was
acquired in 1993 by The
Guardian Foundation, Inc., a
non-profit Atlanta-based owner
and operator of a variety of
nursing homes and other
health care facilities in the east-
ern United States.
Plans are under way to close
the facility on Atlantic Avenue
and move clients to more resi-
dential settings at three sites
in Nassauville and Yulee. Each
will contain three eight-bed
group homes; one will also
include administrative, storage
and garage facilities. However,
Dawson said the center is await-
ing a state inspection of the
homes before the move can
take place.

Celebration of survival


HEATHER A. PERRY

First Coast Cancer
Foundation will hold a
Celebration of Survival from
4-5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
offices of First Coast Oncology
at 1340 South 18th St., Medical
Bldg. A, Suite 103, Fernandina
Beach.
The Celebration of Survival
is designed to assist cancer
patients in addressing some
of the issues they face such as
finding a new sense of nor-
malcy, redefining a new pur-
pose for life, readjusting to
returning to work and facing
financial issues, said First
Coast Oncology Communi-
cation Director Kathleen
Garrett.
"At First Coast Oncology,
our practice philosophy is that
patients are survivors from the
moment they walk into our
practice. We provide a unique
continuum of care for patients

ment," she said.
"Sometimes patients don't
even process the whole can-
cer experience until a few
months later," said Patient
Support Coordinator Jennifer
Maggiore.
"So what we like to do is
have our patients see other
survivors who have reinte-
grated into society. We also
introduce them to national and


local resources that help them
get back to life, back into the
community."
Those attending Celebra-
tion of Survival will view an
inspirational video and listen to
a cancer survivor give her
story.
"When (our survivor)
shares her story with the
group, it's very powerful," said
Maggiore.
"There's power in com-
monality. When you have peo-
ple come together and they
realize, 'Hey, someone else felt
like that, too,' that's very com-
forting."
The culmination of the cel-
ebration is a symbolic balloon
release.
"Patients can write out their
anxieties and what they want
to release and then just let that
go. It's a positive thing," said
Maggiore.

Consumer outlook rises as economic clouds lift


University of Florida
GAINESVILLE - Rising
housing prices, stock market
gains and the lack of any new
setbacks in the national econo-
my boosted Florida's consumer
confidence in August, accord-
ing to a University of Florida
survey.
"We had anticipated an
increase in consumer confi-
dence in August based on
what appeared to be an unjus-
tifiable two-point drop in July
following what was already a
two-point decline the previous
month," said Chris McCarty,
survey director of UF's Bureau
of Economic and Business
Research. "While the econom-
ic environment is by no
means bright, the decline in
July seemed unsustainable
given the lack of any very bad
economic news and some
encouraging signs in Florida's


housing market and the
stock market."
Three of the five compo-
nents in the index rose, one fell
and one stayed the same.
Perceptions of personal
finances now compared with a
year ago remained unchanged.
Perceptions of U.S. economic
conditions over the next year,
perceptions of U.S. economic
conditions over the next five
years and perceptions of per-
sonal finances a year from now
all rose.
The only component to drop
was perceptions of whether it is
a good time to buy big-ticket
items.
"We are not out of this reces-
sion yet, particularly here in
Florida, but things are not near-
ly as bad as they were a year
ago," he said.
Home sales have picked up
both nationally and in Florida,
and falling prices suggest a bot-


toming out of the housing
slump, McCarty said. The latest
report from the Florida
Association of Realtors shows
median prices for existing sin-
gle-family homes flat from last
month and still up for the year,


he said.
If foreclosures continue,
they could depress home
prices, McCarty said. The
Mortgage Bankers Association
has reported that 23 percent of
Florida mortgages in the sec-


Home sales up in NE Florida
JACKSONVILLE- The Northeast Florida Association of
Realtors announced real estate statistics for July, based on
data compiled from the Northeast Florida Multiple Listing
Service, showed "a substantial uptick in sales activity."
Pending sales for the month were 42.3 percent higher
than a year ago and closed sales 15.9 percent higher. Of the
month's closed sales, 24.5 percent were lender-mediated
foreclosures and short sales, which had the effect of skewing
the overall median price downward.
The July median sales price for all properties was
$159,800, down 12.2 percent from a year ago. However, the
median sales price for traditional homes excluding foreclo-
sures and short sales was $172,000, down 9.4 percent from
a year ago.

ond quarter of 2009 were either
in foreclosure or late on pay-
ments, he said.
The hardest hit area
for foreclosures is along the
southwest coast, including
Fort Myers, Sarasota and
Punta Gorda, all of which are
disproportionately dependent
on retirees, McCarty said. A
slowing of the retiree housing
market is a big factor in
Florida's population decline
last year for the first time
since 1946, which the
Bureau reported last week, he
said.
One area that has shown no
signs of improvement is
employment, McCarty said.
"Employment remains an enor-
mous problem for Florida," he
said.
The latest information from
the Agency for Workforce
Innovation shows Florida's
unemployment rate of 10.67

percent in July remained
unchanged from the previous
month, McCarty said. This
number, which does not take
into account those who have
given up looking for work, is
likely to increase through the
end of 2009 and into 2010, he
said.
"Unfortunately, while
Florida housing is showing
signs of improving, the overall
state economy in the long run
will likely lag other parts of the
country given the prospects for
a turnaround in employment,"
McCarty said.
"As the country moves
into recovery over the next
year, real estate, construction
spending and tourism - all of
which have been major sectors
in Florida economy over the
past two decades -will certainly
stabilize, but not grow as they
had," he said. "Florida needs a
new approach."

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2009 NEWS News-Leader


STROKE Continued from 1A
10:30 a.m. at the Savannah
Grand assisted living facility,
1900 Amelia Trace Court.
"It was already in place when
I moved to Amelia Island," he
says. "I was disappointed that
there weren't more people
attending, because I had attend-
ed stroke support groups with
several hundred members, like
the one in Salt Lake Ciiy ., ......
I came from."
In 2000, Davis was the head
of the Salt Lake City Convention
and Visitors Bureau, and at the
time was deeply involved in
planning for the 2002 Winter
Olympics - when he wasn't hik-
ing or skiing himself. Suddenly
the world spun, and the athlete's
body betrayed him. He was on
the floor and couldn't get up.
"I crawled up the stairs and
crawled into the kitchen where
my wife was cooking dinner,"
says Davis. "All I could do was
make sounds like 'uh, uh, uh.'
My throat felt swollen.
"My wife thought I was
going into anaphylactic shock,
because we were going to Africa
after Christmas and I had been
taking an anti-malaria drug, and
she thought I might be having
a reaction to the drug. So she
helped me stagger to the car
and got me to the emergency
room. That probably saved my
life and definitely lessened the
effects of my stroke, because
they gave me a drug called TPA
- tissue plasminogen activator.
It dissolves blood clots and
keeps the stroke from spread-
ing beyond the area of the brain
that's already been damaged."
But some damage had


already been done.
"The right side of my body
was affected. ... (The stroke)
was in my brain stem, which is
a very dense area of nerves,"
Davis says. "My right eye
wouldn't track. My right leg was
so weak I could barely stand.
My esophagus was paralyzed
and I couldn't swallow.
"They told me with physical
therapy I could hopefully recov-
er the use of my right leg and
arm, and with speech and swal-
lowing therapy I would be able
to say the things I was thinking
but couldn't get out."
Davis was determined to
recover - but one thing would
be forever lost to him.
"They said most stroke vic-
tims who couldn't swallow re-
gained the ability within three to
six months, so I really focused
on regaining my strength and
speech, and not so much the
swallowing because I thought
it was just a temporary incon-
venience," he said. "It was more
of an inconvenience than I
expected, because I was hooked
up to a feeding tube 10 hours a
day - four times a day for 2 1/2
hours each time, because the
formula they give you is very
dense with calories and miner-
als, so they have to give it to
you very slowly."
The paralysis in Davis'
esophagus became permanent.
He could not swallow, couldn't
eat or drink. He would have to
take nutrition through a feed-
ing tube for the rest of his life.
"The feeding tube took a lot
of getting accustomed to," he
says. "I would have vomiting -
which I thought was extremely
unfair, because I couldn't get


SUBMITTED
Rick Davis of Fernandina Beach has "lunch" on a hike.
Since suffering a stroke in 2000, Davis has had to take
nutrition through a feeding tube, as he is unable to swal-
low. However, he credits a healthy lifestyle and stroke
support groups with helping him make an otherwise
complete recovery.


anything down, but it didn't
seem to have any problem com-
ing back up.
"Sitting for so long, I watch-
ed a lot of TV, and you wouldn't
believe the number of com-
mercials for food products. It's
very frustrating when you can't
eat or drink and you see other
people doing it like it's the most
normal thing in the world -
which of course it is."
But Davis pushed hard to
recover his speech and move-


ment.
"I was able to give up a walk-
er in a couple of weeks," he
says. He took shuffling steps
down hallways, holding
handrails for support. "Then I
walked down to the neighbor's
driveway, then two driveways -
every day just a little bit further.
I did the same thing with my
arm - one-pound dumbbells,
then two-pound dumbbells."
His persistence paid off.
"Before my stroke I did a lot
of hiking and skiing. I really
enjoyed that," he says. "For
about eight years, some friends
and I hiked across the Grand
Canyon every year. That's 25
miles rim-to-rim. Of course, six
months after my stroke I could-
n't hike at all, but my friends


put together a rafting trip for
me.... The year after that, I was
able to hike a mile down and
back up." Each year, he says, he
pushed himself a bit further.
"Four years later, I was able
to hike it rim-to-rim."

Stroke support
Davis is still active these
days. He has to be, he says -
otherwise the progress he
made in his recovery could
reverse itself.
"The muscles don't know
they're not getting signals (from
the brain)," he says. "So if I
work out three or four days a
week at the gym, my right side
is just as strong as my left side.
But if I didn't, I'd lose that mus-
cle tone very fast."
That's one of the reasons
Davis is adamant about getting
more people to join the Amelia
Island Stroke Support Group -
it's a way to share strategies
about recovery. There are more
than 300 stroke survivors on
Amelia Island alone, Davis says
- more than 1,000 countywide -
but only six or seven attendees
at the Amelia Island Stroke
Support Group's monthly meet-
ings. He's out to change that.
"The first advantage is you
get to talk to other people
who've had a similar experi-
ence," he says. "A lot of times,
people who've had a stroke or a
heart attack or any kind of
chronic illness feel kind of iso-
lated and alone, so there's com-
fort in the company of people
who've had a similar experi-
ence.
"Not everybody knows what
they can do to recover, so you
learn from other people in the
support group what they did to
learn how to walk again, or
learn how to cope in social sit-
uations when you can't do what
others are doing."
And knowledge, Davis says,
can mean the difference
between life and death.

"The average life expectancy
for a person who's 57 -which is
how old I was when I had my
stroke - is seven years ... so I've
already beaten the odds," he
says. "Most (stroke victims) are
older, so their life expectancy
is even lower. Many will die of
another stroke.
"Most people don't know
what they can do to prevent
another stroke," he continues.
"I've learned that the medical
profession is only reimbursed
(by insurance) for immediate
needs, and not long-term care.
Doctors can't make a living by
following up with patients they
treat initially. Once you're dis-
charged from the hospital,
you're pretty much on your
own, which is why a stroke sup-
port group could help people
live a longer and better life, if
only they knew it was available
to them."
Support groups also help
connect their members with
professionals who can help
them, he says.
"As stroke groups get a little
traction ... they start looking for
things they can learn from, so
they invite speakers. This stroke
group has had speech thera-
pists, doctors, physical thera-
pists and financial planners as
speakers. This probably leads
some members to seek the
services of these people, or oth-
ers like them, to help them deal
with their conditions more effec-
tively."
It's that sharing of informa-
tion that can help stroke victims
lead full lives - and avoid anoth-
er stroke.
"It's actually pretty easy to
control the risk factors for
stroke - high blood pressure
and high cholesterol," Davis say
so. "There are medications to
lower both of them. Exercise
brings down both of them, and
of course exercise is something
I have to do anyway. Low-fat
diets, low-salt diets can help. Of
course, smoking is a risk fac-
tor.
"Being overweight is anoth-
er risk factor, which of course is
a contributor to high blood pres-
sure and high cholesterol - but
90 percent of people who are
overweight before their stroke
are overweight after their
stroke. ... From talking to me
at the Amelia Island Stroke
Support Group, a lot of the peo-
ple have started going to the
gym, because I've told them
how much it's helped me."
"If there are 330 stroke sur-
vivors on Amelia Island," he
says, "it's a shame we don't get
more of them to join the sup-
port group - to reduce their risk
of having it happen again."

. VIEWPOINT/JOE GERRITY/FERNANDINA BEACH


Tough tirn


Seen a decline in our property val-
ues, our investments have been
battered and our retirement
accounts have taken a severe hit. The cost of
electricity has almost doubled on the island in
the last 18 months. Last year our city govern-
ment handed us a tax rate increase, a 20 per-
cent hike in the cost of trash pick-up, a 25-per-
cent-plus increase in sewer fees and over the
last three years the cost of simple permits has
almost quadrupled.
The city administration has suggested
several "revenue raising" measures to fund
the coming year's budget. Sounds like
business as usual in City Hall. They include
the sale of city-owned lots, increasing our
utility tax, raising the tax rate again and a new
"stormwater" tax of $4-8/ a month for each
homeowner. Let's take a look at each issue
individually.
Selling 10 city-owned vacant lots to balance
the budget is not a bad idea, it is a terrible one.
First, property values are at a 10-year low, and
our return will be minimal. Second, the local
real estate market is flooded with vacant lots
for sale. Five years ago there were 30 lots for
sale on the island in the Multiple Listing sys-
tem. Today there are 135. The city does not
need to compete with the private sector by try-
ing to sell lots in these difficult economic times.
Third, we borrowed $6 million in 2001 to pre-
serve green space. Fourth, what do we sell
next year to balance the budget? Anyone with
an ounce of business sense knows that you do
not sell assets to finance recurring costs.


1


es - tough

As far as raising the util-
ity tax, our electric bills are
high enough without the
city tacking on additional
fees. Comparing my resi-
dential electric bill for July
2008 to this July, I had an
increased dollar cost of 45
percent due to higher rates
and higher usage caused
Gerrity by a warm summer. Since
the city charges a flat rate
of 4 percent its franchise
fee dollars have already gone up the same 45
percent by virtue of the higher charges. I
would think that should be enough to satisfy
even the greediest bureaucrat.
I am all for better drainage, and don't mind
our tax dollars going to finance those worth-
while projects, but a blanket tax is unfair to the
many people that live in subdivisions that
already provide measures to contain their own
storm water. Many of us paid for stormwater
retention when we purchased our homes
and lots, with the improvements mandated by
the city before the subdivision plats were
approved. We continue to pay a yearly fee to
maintain these improvements through our
homeowners' associations. Double taxation is
not fair.
Additionally, let's not try to balance the
budget by sticking our hands in the pockets of
the youth athletic leagues' participants. I can't
think of a better reason to spend tax dollars
than the development of our children. The
youth baseball and soccer leagues are run by


decisions

hundreds of volunteers who give thousands of
hours of their own time to work with children
in the community. The values, such as hard
work, integrity and sportsmanship, that are
taught to these kids are invaluable now and in
the future.
The least the city can do is maintain the
fields of play as a show of support. They would
have to maintain them in any case.
For every dollar the city takes out of the
hands of citizens, we have one less dollar to
visit our favorite restaurant downtown, buy a
piece of pizza or grab an ice cream cone. Our
local merchants need our patronage so they
can weather the economic crisis. As a city we
have lived on growth in the last 15 years. The
growth boom has stopped, and is not coming
back for several years, if ever.
Tough times call for tough decisions, and
we are in tough times. I sat on the commission
the last time we experienced an economic
downturn.
After the 9/11 attacks tourism suffered and
we were faced with a $1 million deficit. We
eliminated several positions, all but one
through attrition. But we also built Seaside
Park, North Beach Park and the Hickory
Street practice fields with the help of grants,
money from the county and the volunteer serv-
ices of some people in the construction busi-
ness. From what I remember, we didn't raise
taxes or fees, just put our nose to the grind-
stone and made do with what we had. And we
did just fine. This commission should expect no
less from its staff.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Mean-spirited
I thought it was a mistake on the
city's part to charge the Nassau Sport
Fishing Association $800 to use a park-
ing lot for the Fernandina Beach
Tournament of Champions Kingfish
tournament.
I believe it is an even bigger mistake
to charge for use of recreational facil-
ities for our youth. For several reasons
city commissioners ought to be
ashamed of themselves for even con-
sidering it!
First, people pay taxes for city serv-
ices and recreation is a city service. If
the city is not in the business of pro-
viding services, what business is it in,
making money?
Second, before they institute fees to
use these facilities check to see how
much these activities are already cost-
ing parents. I assure it is not inexpen-
sive. Adult volunteers tire of having to
find the means to fund these programs
and keep them within the means of
poorer families.
Third, youth programming is the
basis for success later by our high
school athletes whom commissioners
all love to honor with proclamations
when they excel.
Fourth, this appears to be a mean-
spirited attempt to pass more tax
increases rather than addressing the
real issue, the effect of the Save Our
Homes amendment on local revenues
and a stubborn refusal to spend less.
Commissioners all had the oppor-
tunity with one phone call to save
$160,000 on marina repairs when one
bid came in missing one page. This
small effort would have paid for the
$67,000 they spent on sports facilities
for our youth and then some.
Let's work collaboratively for the
betterment of our community, not divi-
sively!

Wrong kind of change
After 25 years of living in Key West,
my wife Mary and I decided that we
had had about enough of rising costs
of living and perhaps we should find
someplace else to live that was not so
expensive. To wit, our homeowner's
insurance was up to $15,000 a year on
our newly renovated 1,900-square foot-
house. Gasoline prices were generally
25-40 cents higher per gallon than
Fernandina.
When the Key West city commis-
sioners decided that parking meters
would help the ailing city budget, we
really didn't pay too much attention
since it was intended just for down-
town parking. Long story short: the
meters became so numerous and so
expensive (about 25 cents for seven
minutes when we moved in 2006) that
going downtown, or to Smathers
Beach, or any of the other places on
that small island where the meters had
proliferated became prohibitive.
Add to that the scandal that Key
West had with one of their parking
meter coin collectors who managed to
embezzle tens of thousands of dollars
in purloined change, and you may
begin to understand some of the reser-
vations we have when we hear our
local commissioners considering a sim-
ilar parking charge for Fernandina.
The abundance of free parking and
the absence of parking meters on this
island were just two of many factors
that made us decide to call Fernandina
home. I guess that if we have to deal


with parking meters again, we will, but
we know from first-hand experience
that it's not a very enjoyable or eco-
nomically viable change for the citi-
zens.

Tax increases
In regard to the continuing debate
about raising taxes or cutting spending,
I can only relate to what a responsible
individual or family would do in the
same circumstances. When income
becomes limited, spending must be
curtailed in order to meet the most
basic needs - food, shelter, clothing.
Although we might desire much more,
and may possibly have been accus-
tomed to much more, the reality is that
we must distinguish between true
needs and wants.
At the present time, there are many
who are either jobless, or relegated to
a diminished income, and these are
the citizens being asked to pay more in
taxes to fund non-critical projects while
personally they are seeking every pos-
sible way to cut costs in order to make
ends meet. This economic situation is
not one any of us would have chosen,
but the reality is that we are now faced
with a need to set priorities, and live
within the means of our income, both
as individuals and as a community.
Fred McNeal

Unreal
I highly, highly agree with Jim Coe
("Enough's enough," Aug. 26) on the
issue of our supposed God - oh, excuse
me, sheriff. I too noticed his depar-
ture from reality in his inane state-
ments like witnessing open drug deals
going on in Fernandina Beach. Well, if
he is God, oops there I go again, I
mean sheriff, then why, being the high-
ly regarded enforcer of all laws, did
he not make an arrest upon seeing
this?

Spanish mission history
A recent publication of the Amelia
Island Museum of History, The
Jailhouse Muse, contained an article
about a Spanish mission that had been
located on the south end of Amelia
Island.
If you hear the term Spanish mis-
sions, many people think of the mis-
sions you see today in California or
Texas. But that chain of missions was
designed to also stretch across the
southeastern part of what is now the
United States. Originally over 40 mis-
sions were built across lower Alabama,
the panhandle of Florida and over to
Amelia Island. We probably remem-
ber the missions in California and
Texas because physical evidence
remains. Very few physical remnants
remain from the southeastern mis-
sions.
Here's the interesting part: physical
evidence remained on Amelia Island of
one such mission. In an archeological
dig on the south end of the island,
archeologists found a mission that had
been burned in 1702. Awooden door-
sill was found that presumably was the
threshold into the priest's quarters
(the convento) and stepping over the
sill, on the floor, was found the official
seal that the priest used to mark his
documents. This sill and seal are two


I WORE THE FLORIDA LEGI5LATURE A15EP PWIVE'-5 LICENSE ANP E6I5TRATION NFEES..


JEFF PARKER/FLORIDA TODAY


of the few remnants remaining any-
where of Spanish missions in the
Southeast.
Where is the seal? The original seal
is safely kept in a vault by the family
that sponsored the dig, the Dorions. A
replica of the seal can be seen at the
museum. Where is the sill? It is in the
museum, in an area on the first floor
where you can visit and learn all about
the dig and the missions. The sill is
the only architectural feature remain-
ing of the Spanish mission period in the
Southeast. The sill needs to be pre-
served. It is literally falling apart.
The museum is asking for dona-
tions to make a preservation of the sill
possible. Any amount will help the
cause! In tough economic times, it is
difficult enough to keep non-profit
organizations in the black. Here is an
opportunity to help with one specific
thing. I also encourage you to join the
museum when, I am sure, the annual
membership drive will take place this
fall. The museum programs have been
top-notch all summer and many excit-
ing things are planned for the future.
(I can tell by reading the Muse and by
talking to museum enthusiasts.) One of
the highlights of a visit to the island
that I am anticipating in mid-October is
to see a newly preserved original jail
cell on the first floor of the museum.
This effort coincides with the final
push to place the old Nassau County
jailhouse on the National Register of
Historic Places. (All the documenta-
tion is in Washington, D.C.)
I encourage you to support your
local museum. It is a treasure. We now
live in North Carolina, where Spanish
history in the development of United
States history takes a back seat to
English colonial history and the Civil
War. Nowhere do they brag about
three flags, let alone eight flags!

Tribute to Kennedy
It is not just the talking heads on tel-
evision that should be paying tribute to
Sen. Edward Kennedy. During his
decades of national service, the impor-
tant legislation he was instrumental in
passing helped not only liberal
Democrats but all of us.
The next time you use your
Medicare card, remember that there
would be no Medicare without Sen.
Kennedy. If you earn minimum wage,
you must admit that $7.25 goes a little


further than $5.25. You can thank Sen.
Kennedy for that. Young girl athletes
have the same opportunity to play their
favorite sports as young boys because
of the Title IX legislation promoted by
Sen. Kennedy. Those with disabilities
have access to buildings and classes
that used to be inaccessible. And many
parents who can't afford health care for
their children can enroll them in gov-
ernment programs that did not exist
before Sen. Kennedy campaigned for
them.
The senator was born to enormous
wealth, and he could have lived a life of
luxury without even working. Instead,
his passion for those of us who weren't
born rich led him to devote his life to
making our lives better. This is public
service.
Not many of us realize that 20,000
Americans die each year because they
don't have access to health care. Sen.
Kennedy knew this, and he spent 40
years trying to pass legislation cover-
ing all of us. Every time he tried to get
universal coverage, special interests
like the insurance companies who
stand to lose money under a universal
system, intimidated us with lies that
made us afraid to support it. Do we
really want to continue to spend 35
cents of every health care dollar on
insurance companies with CEOs that
make multimillions every year?
If we believe these special inter-
ests, we can fight against having uni-
versal health care legislation, or we
can perform a public service ourselves
by letting our friends, neighbors and
legislators know that we want to do
the right thing.
Joan Cipriano

Godhelpus
Some say it will not hurt the elder-
ly and that isn't true. If the govern-
ment wants to save money and cut
back then it needs to go after the peo-
ple who live on welfare who are able to
work. We have so many Americans
that do nothing but wait at home for a
check and complain. They need to
drug test all the welfare recipients (do
not let then know when they will be
tested) and if they test positive then
they get cut off from the program. If
they can afford drugs they don't need
help for food.
We have too many people living on
welfare who really do not need it. Some
Americans, yes, they need help, but


there really needs to be a time limit
placed on the ones who can go to work.
I see so many whites, blacks, etc., com-
ing in with expensive cars, clothes,
etc., and go through the checkout line
with food stamps. Something is wrong
with this picture.
I truly believe our government
started this program with a good inten-
tion but it has now overtaken our coun-
try that if the government started to cut
back now it would have an uprising
that they do not want to deal with. So
instead go after the people who are
too weak to fight.
I'm only 39 years old and I have
seen this country change. We no
longer live in the America that our
Founding Fathers fought for. We are
turning greedy, selfish, and turn
against the God who can remove His
hand from out country and destroy us.
Yes, our Loving God would do it and
He will do it like He has in the past to
other nations who turned against Him.
I pray we wake up and turn back to our
roots before it is too late.

Health care reform
As a retired family physician with
over 50 years of private practice and
now volunteering at the Samaritan
Clinic here in Fernandina Beach, I
thought Dr. Jeffrey Blake's letter to
the editor on Aug. 21 was superb.
Given the loss of jobs, foreclosures
and other serious problems facing the
country, I am sure we would all like to
postpone health insurance and health
care reform. As Dr. Blake so elo-
quently stated, that would be most
unfortunate.
The size of the growing national
debt is daunting but when, in 1946, I
returned from the Army and World
War II to my university and an AB in
economics before switching to medi-
cine, the national debt was about 120
percent of gross domestic product. It
is currently in the area of 80 percent.
Our economy was subsequently able
to grow at the rate of 4 percent a year,
which gradually corrected the imbal-
ance between national debt and gross
domestic product.
I fear that if our health care costs
continue to track on the current course
we will not be able to duplicate the
years after 1946.

A snail-eat-snailworld


beach at sunrise -
it's a combination
that only happens
every once in awhile, and
even more rarely that I hap-
pen to catch it. For one thing,
low tide means easier walking
on hard sand near the water's
edge. But it's for more than
this that I cherish low tides.
It's the creatures of the
sand flats that I love! Some
marine invertebrates inhabit
this special zone where only
the lowest of tides reveal their
presence. More often than
not this newly visible marine
world reveals something that
amuses and entertains me.
For the duration of my walk,
then, I can think about these
creatures. The miles fly by, I
get my exercise and you folks
get a column. Win-win all the
way around seems to me.
On one of my recent dawn
low tide rambles I found snail
collars every few feet of the
way. I'm sure most of you
would not have even noticed
them, and just stepped on
them. Not me, I gingerly

WAYS

walked
around
them, and
when I
picked one
up to exam-
ine it closely,
I was careful
to lay it right
back where
it was. Far
be it from
me to kill
thousands of
moon snails
- for that's
what each


snail collar represents.
Snail collars are the egg
masses of those beautiful
globular moon snails with
shells that must glow under
moonlight or some such
thing, thus their common
name. It's not very often you
can find one of these charm-
ing walnut-sized shells, but
they are a trophy, each one a
slightly different color and all
glossy and smooth. But when
you find lots of snail collars
around you know they are out
there someplace.


Normally these collars are
below the low tide zone, hid-
den from us. When they are
revealed at the lowest tides,
part of the collar is usually
broken so it doesn't resemble
an old fashioned clothing col-
lar at all. Each collar contains
thousands of moon shell
eggs, cemented together with
sand and snail mucous into a
rubbery mass. When hatched
into the sea, tiny swimming
larva will be released.
Eventually a modest few of
these will survive to settle
below the surf and lay their
own collar of eggs.
Moon snails are beautiful
creatures, there's no doubt.
But behind that shiny smooth
multi-hued exterior lies an
animal more vicious than
most. Think of the worst
blood-sucking vampire that
also poisons its prey and eats
it alive, and then you've got
the picture. Moon snails find
their helpless mollusk vic-
tims, surround their shell
with their fleshy "foot" and
get to work. First, they drill a
hole in the clamshell with


VAI FbTlEK-1UKLEY/OUK1HE NEWS-LEAUEK
Predators and prey on the beach - round moon snails, above, eat clams by boring a
distinctive hole in their shell and consuming the flesh. Moon snails produce rubbery
collars of eggs, sand and mucous, below, which are sometimes found at low tide.


their rasping tongue while
also injecting a mild acid that
simplifies the task.
Then, once their victim's
soft flesh is punctured, they
inject a solution that starts liq-
uefying the flesh. Soon,
maybe not soon enough from
the clam's perspective, the
moon snail sucks out the con-
tents.
An adult moon snail needs
another victim every four
days or so. You can see these
victims all along the beach
everywhere, if you start look-
ing for them. Have you ever
picked up a clamshell and
seen a smooth, round hole in
it? Well, now you know what
that comes from. A moon
snail, or any number of other
predacious snails, has been at
work.
You might also find signs
of another vicious snail mon-
ster of the sea, the whelk! If
you find clamshells with bro-
ken edges just maybe you
saw the remains of a whelk
snail's dinner. Large whelk
shells are sometimes called
conchs by those less
informed and are treasured
by shell collectors, but they,
too, are not as harmless as
they might seem. Like moon


snails, whelks also eat
bivalves, which they kill by
prying their shell open and
eating them alive. The broken
edges on some clamshells on
the beach come not from tum-
bling in the sea, but from
being unhinged so to speak,
by a whelk.
But sometimes small
whelks are instead drilled into
and eaten by moon snails! It's


a snail-eat-snail world out
there in the ocean, and it's not
a pretty sight! Next time you
wander the beach admiring
the many shells you find
there, you've got something
else to think about.

City crackdown


on beach debris


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
Early indications are that
beachgoers are complying with
new city regulations regarding
the abandonment of cabanas
and other debris on local beach-
es.
Police Chief Jim Hurley said
city code enforcement officers,
police auxiliary volunteers and
one police officer collected nine
beach cabanas in a beach
sweep in mid-July, plus other
associated beach equipment
such as coolers.


The cleanup, Hurley said,
was done as a result of weeks of
complaints about large items
left on the beach overnight. As
a result, Hurley said, he had
gotten an e-mail saying there
had been "very, very few" items
left on the beach overnight in
the days immediately there-
after.
"People are complying with
(the city's) request to bring
(beach items) inside after
dark," Hurley said.
Of course, with Labor Day
weekend coming up, there will
be a lot of visitors to the beach,


ROLLINS SNELLING/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
The wind tears up canopies or salt air corrodes them after they are abandoned on the
beach. Beach Services, which has a contract to clean up the beaches, removes the
debris but new rules are intended to prevent this kind of beach litter.


many of whom may be unaware
of the new rules.
Mayor Susan Steger, who
has been vocal about the prob-
lem of abandoned beach
cabanas, said the city will con-
tinue to publicize its rules and
encourage compliance.
"We have major problems
with beach cabanas," Steger
said at a commission meeting


earlier this summer. "'Only
leave footprints' should be our
slogan."
The city has a policy
that states beach equipment
cannot be left on beaches
overnight, and code enforce-
ment has begun attaching
tags for removal within 24
hours.
However, according to the


ordinance, only the police
department can dispose of
abandoned property that has
not been trashed.
City staff recently placed
15 signs at various points
along the beachfront remind-
ing beachgoers to bring in
their equipment at the end of
the day.

Sheriff reaches out to media


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
reached out to members of the
local media at an open house
Thursday at the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office to out-
line new policies for stream-
lining and increasing informa-
tion sharing.
In a short, informal pres-
entation, Seagraves stressed
increased departmental trans-
parency and timely communi-
cations sharing, mainly
through the department's new
public information officer
Angela Spears, formerly of
WTLV channel 12 in
Jacksonville.


Seagraves Spears


Seagraves attributed previ-
ous shortfalls in communica-
tion with media outlets to his
responsibility to attend to obli-
gations involving command-
level decisions and on-scene
investigations. He stressed
his desire to build a bridge to
better communication going
forward, including day-of noti-


fications about crimes and inci-
dents investigated by NCSO, in
an effort to better inform the
community.
"This is an office of the peo-
ple, not Tommy Seagraves,"
he said. "We will always try to
give information and if we
can't, it's for investigative rea-
sons."
The sheriff said an
improved website is coming
soon that will include online
police reports, press releases
and updates on community
concerns.
Seagraves admitted he was
at fault at times for not prompt-
ly notifying the media about
departmental investigations
and activities, but said much


of the lack of communication
had to do with reluctance on
the part of his staff- and police
in general - to speak to the
press.
However, with Spears on
board, Seagraves will no
longer need to be the primary
point of contact for basic
inquiries, but he said he
would still be available for com-
ment.
"I don't need to do this," he
said, regarding day-to-day
media communications. "This
isn't what I'm here for - that's
why Angela is here."
Spears was hired last

in May shooting of


county jail officer


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
The shooting of a Nassau
County Sheriff's Office cor-
rections officer during the Isle
of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival
in May is still under investiga-
tion, pending review by a state
attorney.
Assistant State Attorney
Wes White said an investiga-
tion has been conducted by his
office into the events that led to
corrections officer Anthony
Green, 23, being shot in the
ankle, allegedly by Kevin
Clayton, 29, during an alterca-
tion on North 10th Street on
May 2.
"We're trying to get all infor-
mation to present to State
Attorney Angela Corey, who
may be coming in soon to dis-
cuss the case," White said. "It's
a matter that's on her desk or
will shortly be there."
According to Nassau
County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves, a sergeant with his
office was waved down about 6
p.m. May 2 and told that some-
one had been shot in the ankle
at the home of Clayton, 120
North 10th St. Upon arrival, the
officer found Green lying in the
road with a gunshot wound to
the ankle.
Seagraves said Green had
gone to Clayton's house after
he found his car, which was
parked on Calhoun Street, with
its window broken.
When Green knocked on
Clayton's door to inquire about
the broken window, said
Seagraves, Clayton was load-
ing a gun, so Green ran and
allegedly was shot in the left
ankle by Clayton as he fled.
Green received surgical
treatment at Shands Jackson-
ville.
Clayton was arrested June
11 for criminal mischief with
damage to property over $1,000
for throwing a brick at Green's
2006 Dodge Charger, which
dented the hood and cracked
the windshield, according to a
sheriff's office report.
However, no charges have
been filed in the , .., iir-_.. and
it is unclear what, if any, disci-


plinary action
Green will
face. Accor-
ding to a
memo from
the sheriff's
office, it is
believed there
White was an ongo-
ing dispute
bet ween
Clayton and Green.
"We're trying to determine
if Green should have gone
there," Seagraves said at the
time, adding that Green was
carrying a concealed weapon
but had a permit for it.
Days after the incident
Seagraves said an internal
investigation would be con-
ducted on Green. However,
recently he said his department
would await the completion of
the State Attorney's Office
investigation before proceed-
ing.
Much of the controversy in
the case surrounded the deci-
sion about which local law
enforcement agency would con-
duct the initial investigation.
Shortly after the incident,
Seagraves said because a
county officer arrived at the
scene first, the incident would
be handled by his office despite
having occurred in Fernandina
Beach and despite the fact it
involved one of his employees.
The victim's mother, Sgt.
Arlene Green, is also an
employee of the sheriff's
office.
Fernandina Beach Police
Chief Jim Hurley said city
police were also at the scene,
and said he believed the inci-
dent should be handled by
city police. According to
Hurley, Seagraves said he
"would very much like to han-
dle it."
"I would have been looking
for another agency to handle
it," Hurley said at the time.
When asked why his depart-
ment was handling the case,
Seagraves said, "My officer
pulled up on it. I'm the sheriff
for people in Fernandina
just like people in Nassau
County."

Study: 1 in 5


University of Florida


GAINESVILLE - As many
as one in five alcohol-consum-
ing customers in bars is under-
age, and underage patrons tend
to stay later at night, according
to a University of Florida study.
The study is significant
because it underscores the dan-
gers of underage drinking, both
to participants and to the wider
public.
"That there are a fair num-
ber of underage people in the
bars who are intoxicated may
have implications for their
future involvement with alco-
hol," said Dennis Thombs, a
professor in UF's department
of behavioral science and com-
munity health who led the
research. "It is helping to set a
pattern of chronic bar drinking
for the college years and possi-
bly beyond."
Additionally, a study pub-
lished in Journal of Studies on
Alcohol found underage drink-

Man held for armed

robbery in Nassauville


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
The Nassau County
Sheriff's Office arrested a sus-
pect Friday in the attempted
armed robbery of a
Nassauville convenience store
in January.
Charles Edison "Buckshot"
Wilder, 51, of 95035 Denise St.
is accused of entering the
Kangaroo Express at 941268
Old Nassauville Road just
before midnight Jan. 20 with a
shirt wrapped around his face
and a paper bag over his hand
concealing what he claimed
was a gun, according to an
arrest report.
The robber demanded
money from the clerk, but
when she told him she was
calling authorities, he hit the
register and walked out empty-
handed, the report stated.
According to a press
release, after conducting sev-


eral inter-
views detec-
tives arrest-
ed Wilder
Aug. 28 and
charged him
with attempt-
ed armed
Wilder robbery, petit
theft, grand
theft and
dealing in stolen property.
According to a separate
arrest report, the additional
charges stem from an unre-
lated case in which Wilder is
charged with stealing an air
conditioning unit and electric
meter from a residence and
selling it to his father.
Mary Ann Ward, 46, also of
95035 Denise St., has been
arrested for dealing in stolen
property for allegedly pro-
ducing a fake bill of sale for
the air conditioner, said in the
report to be valued at $4,500.

A Fernandina Beach man
who was applying to be a
police recruit for the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
found himself on the other
side of the law when he was
arrested Aug. 26 and charged
with possession of child
pornography.
According to an arrest
report, the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office was contact-
ed byJSO on Aug. 21 based on
information given by the
potential recruit, David Seaton
Teller, 24, 533 Piney Island
Drive, in an information ques-
tionnaire.
Teller detailed an incident
when he was 22 or 23 years
old in which he peeked at and
touched a young boy's geni-
tals in Jacksonville, the report
stated.
During follow-up questions
administered by a detective
during a voluntary poly-

Burglary arrest
A Fernandina Beach man,
who reportedly burglarized a
home and threw a large rock at
a car while searching for his
son, was found by authorities
under a pile of clothes in an
apartment closet Saturday.
Reco Romayous Davis, 36,
of 723 South 11th St. was arrest-
ed for residential burglary,
throwing deadly missiles, vio-
lation of injunction and verbal
assault Aug. 29.
According to reports, Davis
went to two separate resi-
dences, both of which were
under the charge of juvenile
babysitters, demanding to see
his son.
In the first instance, just after
5 a.m., a 12-year-old babysitter
notified her mother that Davis
was knocking and asking where


his son was, the report stated.
The girl's mother is the mother
of Davis' son, according to the
report, and she has an injunc-
tion against Davis.
The woman later saw Davis
walking down 11th Street and
confronted him from inside a
car, the report stated. In the
course of the altercation, Davis
threw a "large rock" at the pas-
senger side of the car, causing
a big dent, the report stated.
According to reports, just
after 10 p.m. Saturday, authori-
ties responded to Buccaneer
Villas Apartments where Davis
allegedly knocked loudly on the
door, then kicked it off the door
frame, breaking the molding
and threatened those inside,
including a 14-year-old babysit-
ter.
Davis was later found by
authorities hiding in the closet
of another apartment in the
complex under some clothes.
Davis is being held on
$10,002 bond at the Nassau
County Jail.
Stun gun used
A deputy with the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office subdued
a man with a stun gun after
escorting him to his parents'
house to retrieve property from
inside.
The deputy followed Justin
Lee Haynes, 21, to his parents'
home on Last Rebel Road in
Hilliard "to retrieve property."
The report states Haynes
began arguing with his parents,
causing them to request he
leave. Haynes reportedly
refused to leave and continued
to cause a disturbance.
Haynes allegedly resisted
when a deputy told him he was
under arrest. The deputy dis-
charged one stun gun probe
and Haynes was able to be
handcuffed, the report stated.
A Nassau County Fire
Rescue unit responded to pro-
vide first aid and evaluate
Haynes, who was eventually
taken to the Nassau County Jail.

Charges dropped


against principal


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader

The State Attorney's Office
declined on Thursday to pros-
ecute Yulee Middle School's
principal on a charge of
domestic battery.
James D. Rodeffer, 49,
96198 Sea Winds Drive, was
arrested and taken to the
Nassau County Jail after he
allegedly struck his wife Aug.
18.
But according to a dispo-
sition notice from the State
Attorney's Office sent from
Rodeffer's lawyer Harrison W.
Poole, the charge will not be
pursued.
"My client has maintained
his innocence throughout this
matter and is pleased the jus-
tice system has cleared his


name," Poole said in a brief
statement.
Rodeffer's wife called
police two weeks ago after an
alleged argument with her
husband. She said it turned
physical after Rodeffer "fol-
lowed her into the bedroom
and slammed the door,"
"accosted" her and "grabbed
her by the arms," according to
a police report.
"She turned to defend her-
self at which time (he) slapped
her in the face," the report
stated. 'There was redness to
her face and bruising to her
upper arms."
Rodeffer was named prin-
cipal of Yulee Middle School
this summer. He had been
director of secondary educa-
tion for Nassau County
Schools.


Man gets 11 years


for armed robbery
JASON YURGARTIS of false
News Leader I imprison-
I ~ment and


A local man was sentenced
to 11 years in a state prison
for the January 2007 armed
robbery of a Fernandina
Beach convenience store.
John Robert Hernandez,
22, of 732 Old Amelia Road
pleaded guilty Aug. 27 to
armed robbery, sale or deliv-
ery of a controlled substance
within 1,000 feet of a school
and possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana and was
adjudicated guilty. A charge of
tampering with a witness was
not prosecuted.
Hernandez was sentenced
to 11 years in a state prison
with credit for 665 days served
and ordered to pay $100 to the
State Attorney's Office, $448 in
court costs and $500 in resti-
tution.
Hernandez faced a manda-
tory minimum of 10 years in
jail if found guilty of the crime
because of Florida's 10-20-life
sentencing policy for armed
offenses.
Hernandez was arrested at
his home in November 2007
on charges of sale, manufac-
ture and distribution of mari-
juana following an "extensive"
investigation, Fernandina
Beach Police ChiefJim Hurley
said in a 2007 press release.
Hernandez reportedly was
captured on a drug surveil-
lance video bragging about the
Jan. 19,2007, robbery and dis-
cussing possible future rob-
beries, according to the press
release. He was originally
charged with one count of
armed robbery, using a
weapon and mask, two counts


two counts
of aggravat-
ed battery
in connec-
tion with the
Hernandez Jan. 19,
2007, rob-
bery of
Fernandina Food Mart at 201
South 14th St.
Police had been searching
for months for suspects in the
case in which four men rushed
the store about 10:45 p.m. just
as it was preparing to close
and ordered a clerk to give
them money while holding
another clerk at gunpoint. A
surveillance video showed the
first clerk screaming as at least
one of the men repeatedly
ordered her to "shut up" and
give him money.
In the video three of the
men followed her to the count-
er near the cash register and
as she began pulling money
out of the drawer a fourth man
pointed what appeared to be a
gun at the second clerk.
After receiving the money
the men ran out of the store
and the clerk called 911. A
man outside the store chased
the robbers, believing they
were shoplifters, but they got
away in a car.
Lavone Monique Hutchin-
son, 23, 901 S. Vernon St., was
arrested Aug. 21 and charged
with principal to armed rob-
bery with a deadly weapon
and accessory after the fact
to robbery. Police are still
looking for three others who
participated in the robbery.

"You're not stuck on a bus.
You're right in the thick of
things, you're centrally locat-
ed, and there's always some-
thing to do."
Baker said the trips are all
about living like the locals
and experiencing their world
on their terms.
"It's really a unique pro-
gram because you get a great
perspective on the world. It
helps you become much
more of a world citizen and be
grateful for what you have."
Michael Hawthorne expe-
rienced this exact change in
viewpoint after his five-week
cultural immersion.
"It's changed my entire
perspective on life," said
Hawthorne. "It was a once in
a lifetime experience. There
really are not words to give
full credit to the things I saw
and experienced - the flaw-
less scenery, the exquisite
foods and the immeasurable
amounts of fun you have
doing each and every little
thing, even public transporta-
tion."
As for the food,
Hawthorne said he ate most
of the "deep-culture" foods he
was offered.
"I ate kangaroo, emu, sev-
eral types of lamb and goat as
well as fish I didn't even know
the names of!"
Of all the exotic foods he
tried, Hawthorne named kan-
garoo as the most unusual.
He found the people he
met at each new location to be
"laid back, calm and collected,
but not lazy in any way, shape
or form."
During his excursion,
Hawthorne experienced life
to the fullest, living as a native
in Fiji, diving the Great
Barrier Reef off the coast of
Australia, and cave diving,
which he found a bit uncom-
fortable.
"It was loads of fun but it
starts to get cold and I get
nervous in caves because I'm
a little claustrophobic."
The most exciting part of
the trip for Hawthorne was
the jet boat ride through a
rocky canyon.
The most difficult part was
leaving the group once the
tour was over.
"You make a lot of friends
you won't ever forget ... and
you're leaving paradise. No
one wants to leave paradise!"

The varsity Hornets shut
out the host Baldwin Indians

the Kickoff Classic. The junior
varsity football team won 6-0 in
the second half.
"I was very happy with our
overall play," said Bobby
Ramsay, Yulee High School
head football coach. "Forcing
four turnovers in a half was
good, but I was happy that we
scored on the first play after
two of them. That shows the
kids are starting to understand
about taking advantage of
momentum swings in a game.
"I thought the offensive line,
led by Kenny Stewart and Abe
Gingery, played extremely well,
better than the offensive line
played all last year. I was also
very proud of the JV. They real-
ly dominated."

played St. Augustine and
Raines, so they will be ready to

have to improve our passing
and our kickoff coverage in
order to win."
Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Friday.


Turtle Trot run,


walk on Saturday


An earlier start and some
free extras are in store for par-
ticipants in this year's Turtle
Trot 5K/10K race and 1.5-mile
walk on Labor Day weekend.
The annual event will begin at
7:30 a.m. Saturday, a half hour
earlier than last year.
After the race, runners can
freshen up with a free shower
at the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center and spend
the rest of the day on Amelia
Island. Those who use the
showers should bring their own
towels.
Runners and walkers can
present their race bib for free
admission to Fort Clinch State
Park for the remainder of the
day.
An awards ceremony with
door prizes will follow the event
with a grand prize of a four-day,
three-night stay at the Amelia
Island Plantation.
The race will again feature
professional scoring from 1st
Place Sports in Jacksonville,
using an electronic chip-timing
system.
The 5K, 10K and 1.5-mile
non-competitive walk will start
and finish at the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center with
the last half of the 10K running
through Fort Clinch State Park.
Half-mile and one-mile fun
runs for children 10 and


younger will begin at 9 a.m. In
another change this year, the
kids' runs will be free. The goal
is to encourage young people to
run and make the entire event
more affordable for families,
Hill said. Registration is re-
quired and youth finishers will
receive a ribbon at the end of
their run.
A popular feature is return-
ing this year - original T-shirt
artwork by Fernandina Beach
artist and sea turtle volunteer
Sandra Baker-Hinton. All pre-
registered walkers and 5K/10K
runners will receive a T-shirt
with shirts available on race
day while supplies last.
Proceeds benefit the Amelia
Island Sea Turtle Watch and
sea turtle patrols inside Fort
Clinch State Park along with
the running club's youth run-
ning programs.
Entry fee is now $25 for
everyone. Pre-registration ends
at 2 p.m. Thursday, but there
will be race-day registration
from 6-7 a.m. at the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center.

istration are available at

USC could smell roses if Barkley takes a


f Southern Cal makes it to the Rose Bowl
for all the marbles next January, true
freshman QB Matt Barkley might just be
fresh off a trip to New York as an invitee to
the Heisman Trophy celebration. Barkley, a
heralded gunslinger out of Orange County,
edged out sophomore Aaron Corp and will
take over a USC squad full of talent. With that
said, it's also a USC squad full of players that
even the gifted Mark Sanchez failed to lead to
the promise land before leaving town for the
NFL's New York Jets. Needless to say, Barkley
has some big shoes to fill, which is why many
skeptics will remove USC from BCS
Championship contention. And if history is an
indicator, they might be right to do so.
Since 1972, when freshmen were first
allowed to compete with the big boys, only two
- Miami's Bernie Kosar in 1983 and
Oklahoma's Jamelle Holieway in 1985 - have
stepped on campus and under center to lead
their teams to a national title. That stat might
be a bit unfair because there haven't been a


ton of true freshmen starting
quarterbacks in college foot-
ball over the years. With that
said, there is a one-word rea-
son why coaches usually
choose to let the new guys be
mentored for at least a year
before throwing them into
the proverbial fire:

Barkley might just be calling Mr. Sanchez for

The last week in August was still hot, but
62 players turned out last Wednesday to take
part in the blitz. It was one of those days
when a few players had really great scores
led by Jim Robertson, who had a two-under-
par 71, good for plus 13 points and individual
honors. He was pushed for the honors by
Ken Davies (76) and Bruce Smyk (82), who
tied for second and third places at plus 12.
Smyk (plus 12) was on an all-plus team of
Ed Lormand (94, plus 7), Larry Gallo (86,
plus 5) and Claude Hartley (90, plus 3),
which finished in first place with a great
score of plus 27 points.
Second place went to a team with no
minuses that was led by Davies (plus 12),
Doug Morris (89, plus 5), David Mudd (90,
plus 5) and Lynn Satterwhite (88, even) fin-
ishing at another score of plus 22.
In a distant third place a team that includ-
ed John Bray (78, plus 9), Bob Sibley (85,
plus 7), Bob Craven (91, plus 1) and Zack
Raszkin (95, minus 3) as they had a score of
plus 14.
Robertson with his plus 13 did get just
enough help from Jack Croake (80, plus 6) to
offset the minus 2 of Al Jump (97) and Kenny
Pickett (85) and the minus 3 of Allen
Elefterion (82) to finish in fourth place at plus
12.
Friday saw a smaller turnout for the blitz
as 40 players took part. The scoring was not
quite as good as on Wednesday as individual
honors went to Bob Dorsey (75), who shared
them with Claude Hartley (83) at plus 8.
There was a tie for third place at plus 7
between Larry Hutchison (81), Steve
Johnson (a three-under-par 70) and Bill Jones
(78).
As on Wednesday, each of the winning
teams was in double figures. Johnson (plus 7)
assisted by Charles Kicklighter (76, plus 6)
and Allen Sage (78, plus 3) was enough to
allow the team that included Mike Joyce (77,
minus 2) to finish in first place at plus 14.
Second place at plus 13 was claimed by
the team of Rob Maynard (76, plus 6), Jesse
Martinez (86, plus 5), Wayne Mortenson (89,
plus 5) and Larry Gallo (91, minus 3).
There was a tie at pls 12 for third and
fourth places. The teams involved were made
up of Jones (plus 7), Jim Robertson (77, plus
4), Kent Johnson (86, plus 3), Larry Griner
(95, minus 2) and Jack Croake (80, plus 4),
Jim Raffone (80, plus 4), Larry Luett (77, plus
4) and John Bray (83, even).

Breakfastmixer
Saturday saw one of the best turnouts yet
for the Saturday Morning Breakfast Mixer as
40 players took part. Steve Johnson had
another good outing as he had a one-under-
par 72 and plus 7 points, which enabled him
to tie for first place with Ama Corbett (91).
There was a tie at plus 6 for third place
between Michael Kaufman (87) and Allen
Sage (78).
Fifth place at plus 4 went to Gerald Wilder
(80), while three players, Charles Himmel-
heber (80), Bob Sibley (87) and Kevin McCoy

Junior Players Championship
For the third consecutive year, the PGA
Tour and American Junior Golf Association
will combine efforts to stage The Junior
Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in
Ponte Vedra Beach Sept. 3-6. The 54-hole
event will feature the top 60 junior boys in the

has proven to challenge even the best junior
golfers, ages 12-18, making The Junior
Players Championship a coveted title.
The event begins Sept. 3, when a select
group of juniors will be paired with amateur
partners in a charity Junior-Am Fundraising
Tournament. The 54-hole competition begins
Sept. 4 and will be played through Sept. 6
with tee times running from 8-9:48 a.m. off
the Nos. 1 and 10 tees. Spectators are wel-
come to attend and admission is free of
charge.
Invitations to the event have been extend-
ed and the final tournament field was
unveiled in mid-August. Visit
www.pgatour.com for information.
The American Junior Golf Association is a
501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to
the overall growth and development of young
men and women who aspire to earn college

The Deutsche Bank Championship
began in 2003 and is held at the
Tournament Players Club of Boston
in Norton, Massachusetts. Unlike
most tournaments, this tournament
is intended to end on a Monday due


to its scheduling near Labor Day. Adam Scott won the first event in 2003, taking
home the title with a four-stroke victory over Rocco Mediate. The tournament is
the second tournament of the FedEx Cup Playoffs leading up to the Tour
Championship. Only the top 100 players in the FedEx Cup points rankings are
qualified to compete this week. Last year, Vijay Singh won the Deutsche Bank
Championship for his second consecutive Playoff victory and nearly guaranteed
himself the FedEx Cup Championship.

f We are used to practicing shots
From the fairway, sand or rough to
try things on different surfaces, but
one of the areas that most golfers
have little to no practice on is
some hard pan. Hard pan refers to
S' I a path of rock-hard ground where
there is no grass for the ball to prop up on. This
shot is very difficult because we try to be too cute
and the predominant shot is skulled and runs for-
ever. To play the shot correctly, a sand or pitching
wedge is the club of choice according to the tra-
jectory you desire. The trajectory is solely deter-
mined by the position of the ball in your stance.
For a high soft shot, place the ball forward. A
standard pitch requires the ball in the center of
the stance. If you are looking to hit a low, running
shot, place the ball back in your stance.


An Byeong-hun won the U.S. Amateur Championship title at Southern Hills Country
Club in Tulsa, Okla on Sunday. The South Korean, who will turn 18 in two weeks,
became the youngest champion to top the tournament in its 109-year history. "I can't
believe it. I just won," said An, who was missing the first week of school at Bradenton , --
(Fla.) Preparatory Academy to play in the tournament. "I've said it before, but my goal was \
to make it to the first round and then somehow I made it this far. I think I got lucky." It's the
second year in a row that the top U.S. amateur event has crowned the youngest champion in its history.
Danny Lee, a South Korean-born New Zealander, broke Tiger Woods' record to become the youngest
champion last year at age 18. In clinching the Havemeyer Trophy, An has earned an exemption into the
U.S. Open and British Open in 2010 and traditionally will be invited to the next Masters Tournament.

Redfish from





rats to bulls


"By far, my favorite plastic
lure color for redfish is pur-
ple, while a close second is
silver with red and blue
flakes," Capt. Roger Bump
said. "I prefer standing up in
my kayak so I can see redfish
better. My favorite redfish
tide is a flood tide when the
reds move into the flooded
marshes to feed on crabs."
Bump gave a very inform-
ative redfish seminar Aug. 26
at Ten Acres. Members of the
Nassau Sport Fishing
Association were taught some
pretty savvy redfishing tech-
niques.
Bump developed the
"Straight Jacket" spinner sev-
eral fishing seasons ago. It is
a deadly lure for catching not
only redfish, but also sea
trout and flounder. Bump is
also a well-established
Jacksonville backwater guide
and is a repeat winner in the
annual Jacksonville Kayak
Fishing Tournament.
"When the reds move into
the flooded marsh grasses,
their main goal is to fill their
stomachs full of fiddler crabs
and small blue crabs," Bump
said. "Here, the reds will
often feed headfirst on the
bottom with tails protruding
from the marsh. Redfish will
swim slowly in the marsh
while providing an easy target
for kayak fishermen.
"My favorite lure for high
tide reds is a purple tube lure,
rigged weedless with a wide
gap, 4/0 Mustad weighted
hook. Once a tailing red is
spotted, I will cast the tube
lure a few feet ahead of the
tailing red and allow the plas-
tic tube lure to sit motionless
on the bottom. If the red
doesn't take the lure, I will
move the lure just a few inch-
es along the bottom."
During low tide periods
Bump looks for areas in
creeks and bays where there
is a dark mud bank. Deep
sloughs located against a rich
mud bank attract shrimp and
other marine life.
"A steep mud bank also
gives redfish a wall to trap
and easy meal," Bump said.
"You can always tell if redfish
are present when you see


shrimp
exploding
against a
mud bank. I
like a silver
curly tail
plastic worm
that has sil-
ver and red
metal flakes.
OUTDOORS I rig the
worm with a
TerryLacoss chartreuse,
1/8-ounce
led head jig and work the
deadly redfish lure from the
shallow side of the bank out
to deep water."
After the redfish seminar,
members of the NSFA
enjoyed a delicious covered
dish dinner that featured
lasagna and several delicious
desserts. For more informa-
tion on the NSFA, visit
www.fishnsfa.com.
With the slumping econo-
my, more and more fisher-
men are taking advantage of
backwater fishing for redfish,
sea trout, tarpon, flounder,
whiting, jack crevalle, sharks
and cobia at nearby bays and
tidal estuaries.
Just take a look at the local
boat trailer park on a
Saturday morning. There are
far more small boat trailers
than large boat trailers.
Fishermen are also finding
redfish and other backcoun-
try game fish make for excel-
lent game when taken on
light spin, casting or fly fish-
ing tackle.
"I want to catch a redfish,"
Courtney Fassbender said as
she and husband Bill
Fassbender boarded my shal-
low water bay boat. "I have
never caught a redfish, Terry.
Can you find me a red?"
We actually had a perfect
falling tide and a short boat
ride before setting both
Power Poles into a mud bot-
tom. Live shrimp were barbed
under popping floats and
soon drifted alongside an oys-
ter-laden shoreline. Just min-
utes into our fishing trip,
Courtney Fassbender hooked
into a sizeable fish and it was
fight on.
The large fish bulled its
way on the shallow flat, strip-

ping line at will from the 4000
Shimano spinning reel.
However, what was hoped to
be a big red turned out to be
a fairly large bonnethead
shark.
A few more fish, including
sea trout, jack crevalle and
more sharks, were hooked
before moving to a long bar
located at the southern end of
Amelia island. We found a


nice school of redfish on the
shallow side of the bar feed-
ing on bait that was being
pushed over the shallow edge
of the bar.
A large shrimp was select-
ed from my Triton's livewell
and barbed to Courtney
Fassbender's spinning tackle.
Soon the barbed shrimp was
drifting towards the shallow
edge of the bar when a fairly


large fish knocked the live
shrimp several inches out of
the water. A second strike
caused the float to go under
and once again it was fight on.
After a long run, a 32-inch
red came to the surface and
let Courtney Fassbender
know that it was finally her
time to catch a redfish.
During the rest of the tide
our fishing party ran into vari-


ous size redfish, including a
small school of "rat" reds that
measured just over the legal
18-inch size limit, to a perfect
27-inch redfish that Bill and
Courtney Fassbender took
home for dinner.
Southeast Georgia and
Northeast Florida definitely
harbor some of the best red-
fishing in the South, from
"rats" to "bulls."


OUTDOOR BRIEFS


Boating course
The Coast Guard Auxiliary at Amelia Island
will be conducting a six-week boating course
Sept. 8 through Oct. 15. The classes will be
held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. at
the Amelia Island Lighthouse cottage in
Fernandina Beach.
This course is excellent for both the begin-
ning boater, who needs to understand the fun-
damentals of boating, and for the experienced
boater, who may be in need of a refresher. The
basics of boat handling, weather, navigation,
electronics, use of radios and rules of the
waterways are some of the subjects that will
be covered. This class satisfies state boater
education requirements. The enrollment fee is
$35 and textbook materials will be provided.
For information or to register, contact
Steve Filkoff at 491-8629 or e-mail at scarf@
bellsouth.net. For information on boating safe-
ty classes, visit the Flotilla 14-1 website,

HuntNassauWMA
If you are looking for a place to hunt this
fall, you still have a chance to get a recreation-
al use permit for the Nassau Wildlife Manage-
ment Area in Nassau County during the
upcoming hunting season. Nassau WMA is
13,892 acres near Callahan. Users must have a
Nassau recreational use permit to hunt on this
area. Nassau WMA is a still-hunt area only, but
hunters may use bird dogs during the migrato-
ry bird and waterfowl hunting seasons.
For those willing to pay $385 to hunt the
area, Nassau WMA provides hunting opportu-
nities during eight months of the year.
Archery is from Sept. 26 through Oct. 25;
muzzleloading gun season runs from Oct. 31
through Nov. 8; general gun season is from
Nov. 14 through Jan. 10, 2010; small game is
from Jan. 11 through March 7, 2010; spring
turkey season runs from March 20 through
April 25, 2010; and trapping can be done from
Jan. 11 through March 1, 2010.


To apply for a recreational use permit to
hunt on Nassau WMA, go to MyFWC.com.
Recreational use permits are designed to
provide more revenue to landowners in the
WMA system. Money set aside by the FWC to
compensate those landowners for hunting use
on their lands was not sufficient to compete
with private hunting leases. Rather than have
WMAs drop out of the system, the FWC offers
recreational use permits. Fees collected from
these permits supplement the compensation
for private landowners, keeping their lands
open to public hunting.
Except for hunting, permit holders and
their spouses or dependent children may par-
ticipate in other activities on designated
WMAs. Only permit holders and one depend-
ent child (under age 16) may hunt. If spouses
or more than one dependent child (under age
16) wish to hunt, they must purchase a recre-
ational use permit. Recreational use permits
also include a management area permit when
hunting public lands not in the recreational
use program.
Recreational use permits do not apply to
other recreational use program areas. Once
permits are issued, they can be renewed annu-
ally for two additional years, essentially mak-
ing them a three-year permit. Permit renewals
are mailed May 1. Eligible applicants have
until May 31 to renew their recreational use
permits for the next season. Permits not


renewed by May 31 will be forfeited and they
will be made available to the public on a first-
come, first-served basis.
Permits are issued individually on a first-
come, first-served basis in June. Submit an
application at www.wildlifelicense.com or take
a completed worksheet to a tax collector's
office or any license agent. Worksheets are
available online at MyFWC.com, at FWC
regional offices and tax collectors' offices in
counties surrounding a specific WMA.

Join theauxiliary
The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary
needs volunteers. It is composed of uniformed
non-military volunteers who assist the Coast
Guard in all of its varied missions, except for
military and direct law enforcement.
These men and women can be found on the
nation's waterways, in the air, in classrooms
and on the dock. Training opportunities, most
of which are free, include boat crew and cox-
swain (small boat operator) vessel examiner,
boating safety class instructor, public affairs,
marine visitor and others. Applicants must be
a U.S. citizen, at least 17 years old and pass a
basic background check. There are no upper
age limits or height or weight standards
(although boat crew must perform certain
tasks). There are no minimum service hours.
Flotilla 14-01 meets at the Amelia Island
Lighthouse facility once a month.

a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday
through Friday, except legal
holidays, at Northeast District
Office, 7825 Baymeadows
Way Suite B200, Jacksonville, FL
32256-7590.
The Department will issue
the permit with the attached
conditions unless a timely peti-
tion for an administrative hear-
ing is filed under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, within fourteen days
of receipt of notice. The pro-
cedures for petitioning for a
hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected by
the Department's proposed
permitting decision may peti-
tion for an administrative pro-
ceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. The petition
must contain the information
set forth below and must be
filed (received by the clerk) in
the Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4),
Florida Administrative Code,
a person may request enlarge-
ment of the time for filing a
petition for an administrative
hearing. The request must be
filed (received by the clerk) in
the Office of General Counsel
before the end of the time
period for filing a petition for an
administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than those entitled
to written notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must
be filed within fourteen days of
publication of the notice or
within fourteen days of receipt
of the written notice, whichev-
er occurs first. Under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, how-
ever, any person who has
asked the Department for
notice of agency action may
file a petition within fourteen
days of receipt of such notice,
regardless of the date of pub-
lication.
The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the
applicant at the address indi-
cated above at the time of
filing.The failure of any person
to file a petition or request for
enlargement of time within
fourteen days of receipt of
notice shall constitute a waiv-
er of that person's right to
request an administrative
determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. Any subse-
quent intervention (in a pro-
ceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the dis-
cretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Administrative
Code.


A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the
Department's action is based
must contain the following
information:
(a) The name, address, and
telephone number of each
petitioner; the name, address,
and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if
any; the Department permit
identification number and the
county in which the subject
matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how
and when each petitioner
received notice of the
Department action;
(c) A statement of how
each petitioner's substantial


interests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts
that the petitioner contends
warrant reversal or modifica-
tion of the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of
the ultimate facts alleged, as
well as the rules and statutes
which entitle the petitioner to
relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by the petitioner, stat-
ing precisely the action that
the petitioner wants the
Department to take.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed
to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's
final action may be different
from the position taken by it
in this notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be
affected by any such final
decision of the Department
have the right to petition to
become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with
the requirements set forth
above.
In addition to requesting
an administrative hearing, any
petitioner may elect to pur-
sue mediation. The election
may be accomplished by filing
with the Department a medi-
ation agreement with all par-
ties to the proceeding (i.e., the
applicant, the Department,
and any person who has filed
a timely and sufficient petition
for a hearing). The agreement
must contain all the informa-
tion required by Rule 28-
106.404, Florida Administrative
Code. The agreement must be
received by the clerk in the
Office of General Counsel of
the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, within ten
days after the deadline for fil-
ing a petition, as set forth
above. Choosing mediation
will not adversely affect the
right to a hearing if mediation
does not result in a settlement.
As provided in Section
120.573, Florida Statutes, the
timely agreement of all par-
ties to mediate will toll the time
limitations imposed by Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, for holding an admin-
istrative hearing and issuing a
final order. Unless otherwise
agreed by the parties, the
mediation must be concluded
within sixty days of the execu-
tion of the agreement. If medi-
ation results in settlement of
the administrative dispute, the
Department must enter a final
order incorporating the agree-
ment of the parties. Persons
seeking to protect their sub-
stantial interests that would be
affected by such a modified
final decision must file their
petitions within fourteen days
of receipt of this notice, or they
shall be deemed to have
waived their right to a pro-
ceeding under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. If mediation termi-
nates without settlement of
the dispute, the Department
shall notify all parties in writing
that the administrative hearing
processes under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, remain available for
disposition of the dispute, and
the notice will specify the
deadlines that then will apply
for challenging the agency
action and electing remedies
under those two statutes.

Arriving the best


Is there anything more dehuman-
izing than traveling by airplane?
It has not always been that way.
Traveling by plane was a dress-
up event full of ceremony and
respect. Not any more.
It starts with drop-off. The per-
son dropping the passenger off bare-
ly slows down when the self-impor-
tant curb police are waving their
arms and pointing ahead. Unsmiling
luggage handlers are quick to tell
you it will cost you to check in at the
curb. OK, in the door and to your
airline counter and the next test.
Can you successfully figure out how
to use the check-in machine that
snatches your credit card and is sup-
posed to spit out your ticket and seat
assignment? Personally, I don't trust
machines that suck in your card. If
you check a bag, a hand is out for
another fee.
Then you join the silent army
trudging towards the security area.
With ID and ticket information in
hand you snake through a line in
cordoned off lanes. Finally, you get
to the end of the line and the ulti-
mate gatekeeper.

DIGGING THE PAST


Volunteer Judy Pillans tells an Indian story as the children listen intently.


The Amelia Island Museum of History's 2009 Children's Summer Program, Dig Into
the Past, introduced 40 local children to archaeology, the culture of the Timucuans
and the first three flags that flew over Amelia Island. Beginning with a program by the
Florida Public Archaeology Network, the group learned how archaeologists find and
excavate historic sites for artifacts. Afterwards, teams of volunteers took turns teach-
ing the children about the Timucuans, the French, the Spanish and the British. The
two five-week sessions culminated with a puppet show that allowed the children to
demonstrate to their family how much they had learned. Thanks to the efforts and
dedication of wonderful volunteers, the program was a huge success.

Group wins smiles one pillowcase at a time


For the News-Leader

A national program design-
ed to make hospital stays a lit-
tle more pleasant for children
with cancer and other serious
illnesses is now being intro-
duced to our area.
"It's a simple thing we do,"
said Sylvia Hurst, Nassau
County coordinator for the
non-profit ConKerr Cancer -
A Case for Smiles. "It's all
about putting smiles on the
faces of these children - and
we do it with bright, colorful,
fun pillowcases in all sorts of
designs." There are pillowcas-
es with flowers, ladybugs,
frogs, puppies, dogs, horses,
cars, cartoon characters,
pirates, cars, motorcycles and
animals. Some cases have
stripes, polka dots or geomet-
ric designs; FSU, UGA, UF and
Jaguar prints, and even some
girly-girly designs.

to use while in the hospital and
to take with them. And it says
to them 'someone cares,'"
noted Hurst.
The program has begun
with deliveries to Wolfson
Children's Hospital, primarily
the oncology/transplant unit.
The goal is to provide 100-150
pillowcases per month from
the Nassau/Duval/St. Johns
county area.
The program started in
2002 with Cindy Kerr when
her son, Ryan, was diagnosed
with cancer. She began making
colorful, fun pillowcases for
him when he was hospitalized.
His pillowcases were such a
big hit, she began making
them for other children at
Children's Hospital of
Philadelphia.
Now, 90,000 pillowcases
later, this program has 83 chap-
ters serving children in 96 hos-
pitals. In 2007, Cindy Kerr was
awarded the Martha Stewart
"Dreamers into Doers Award,"


The organizing committee of the fourth
annual Wild Amelia Nature Festival, to be
held on Amelia Island from Friday, May 21,
through Sunday, May 23, 2010, is looking for
volunteers to join "the Wild Bunch."
More hands are needed to help with pub-
licity, coordinating vendors and ecotours, tech-
nology, the photography and art contests,
enlisting volunteers, and facility set-up at the
festival.
A meeting of all interested lovers of the
natural beauty of Amelia Island who might
be willing to help with the festival will be held
on Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. in the new


aquatics classroom of the Atlantic Recreation
Center in Fernandina Beach. There will be
refreshments and a slideshow about previous
festivals.
The Wild Amelia Nature Festival grew out
of the concern of local residents who wished
to educate locals and tourists alike about the
beauty and fragility of the island's ecosys-
tems, in order to foster both appreciation and
conservation. For more information about
the Wild Amelia Nature Festival, visit
www.wildamelia.com.

My name is Sparky. I am
almost one year old and
weigh 14 pounds. I know my
age because when I went to
the doctor for my teutering (I
thought they said teuter,
turns out they said neuter),
Dr. Jaime had to remove
some puppy teeth. Now I am
ready to play, play, play. My
foster mom says my middle
name should be "Happy"
because I am so happy to play
with the dogs at my foster
home that I wear them all out.
I promise to wear out your
dogs, kids and significant oth-
ers, so if you already have a
little noise at your house with
your kids playing I'm just
what you need to help them
take care of all that extra
energy. Maybe you will just
end up changing my name to
"Happy". Please complete an
adoption application if you
can be my forever home.


Save the Animals Rescue
Society does not run a shelter.
Animals are fostered by
STARS members until a suit-
able and caring home is
