steer the Yulee Hornets to their.
fifth win of the season. Yulee

Rams 21-6 to push the Hornets'
record to 5-3 overall and 2-3 in
the district.
"We still didn't score as
much in-comparison to the
number of opportunities we
had to score, and our penalty
situation was very bad on
offense," said Bobby Ramsay,
head football coach at Yulee
High School. "HOwever, we out-
gained them 450-80, so I'm
good with that L
"We had players ik.e juniors

Fernandina falls to the University Christians 39-13


BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Pirates dropped to 2-6
with Friday's 39-13 district loss
to University Christian.
The Pirates have one win in
the district as they head into
Yulee Friday for their final dis-
trict matchup of the season.
University went up 7-0 in the
first quarter and tacked on
another nine points in the sec-
ond quarter and back-to-back
plays.
UC sacked quarterback
Alex Taylor in the end zone for
a safety and then returned the
ensuing kickoff for a score to
take a 16-0 lead with 3:20 left in
the first half.
The Christians scored again
with five seconds left in the first
half to take a 23-0 lead.
On the Pirates' first drive of


the second half, Taylor con-
nected with Tahj Kimble for a
60-yard TD pass. With Robby
Phillips' PAT, the Pirates cut
UC's lead to 23-7.
Another safety pushed UC's
lead to 25-7 and, with just two
minutes left in the third quarter,
the Christians led 32-7 thanks
to a 76-yard touchdown run.
The host Christians tacked
on another touchdown with
4:07 left to play in the game
before the Pirates managed
another score.
Kimble ran in from four
yards out, but the kick was
blocked. University's Christians
cruised to a 39-13 win.
The Pirates head to Yulee
Friday to take on the Hornets,
who are 5-3 after Friday's 21-6
win at Interlachen.
Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Yulee
High School.

Gator win over Bulldogs is an elixirfor offense


F lorida's 41-17 blowout of Georgia in
Jacksonville Saturday served a lot of
purposes. First, it clinched the SEC
East and the Gators' primary goal of
getting to Atlanta. Then there was Tim
Tebow's record 50th rushing touchdown of his
career (over the most celebrated Dawg in his-
tory nonetheless). As for recruiting, 17-of-20
can't hurt when a high school superstar is on
the fence between Florida and Georgia.
But where championships are concerned,
Saturday might be looked back upon as a cata-
lyst of sorts. Halloween20Q09 might be remem-
bered as the day when the Florida players
stopped playing tight and the Florida coaches
stopped coaching tight.
Florida head coach Urban Meyer admitted
after a less-than-impressive win at Mississippi
State Oct. 24 that everyone in orange and blue
was pressing. Coaches were trying to send in
the perfect play when the Gators reached the
red zone, rather than sticking to the call sheet.
Tebow might have been trying to do a little too


much, pulling the ball down
and running when receivers
were open or forcing it into
coverage when they weren't.
Message boards were rife
with fans wondering what
had happened to the domi-
nating offense from 2008.
But Florida's first two
drives Saturday seemingly
brought back a sense of har-
SPORTS money. The Gators rediscov-
ered the vertical pass and
TALK moved the ball with ease,
which had to produce a col-
JOHN L. elective sigh of relief through-
CRAWFORD out Gator Nation.
After weeks of frustrating
offense, followed by ques-
tions about the Gators' validity as the top-
ranked team in the country, Florida should
come out of the tunnel Saturday in Gainesville
with a renewed sense of confidence.


Saturday was indeed special as it pertained
to records and championship aspirations. And
when all is said and done; it might very well be
viewed as the springboard to championships
- as the day the Gators rediscovered them-
selves ...
As respected and endeared as Georgia
head coach Mark Richt is in Athens, one has
to wonder just how many more times he can
lose to arch rival Florida before his job status
comes into question. The coach probably gets
a pass for Saturday simply because of who was
playing quarterback for both teams. While a
Joe Cox win over Tim Tebow might have
resulted in a new contract for Richt, even the
most ardent Bulldog fans probably didn't
expect it to happen.
Next year might be a different story, how-
ever, with John Brantley stepping under center
for the Gators. With the departure of
Superman, the Georgia faithful will likely roll
into RV City next year fully anticipating a victo-
ry. If it doesn't happen, well there might just


be a few more logs put on the fire under
Richt's seat...
Speaking of coaching careers, Steve
Spurrier can't be having too much fun at South
Carolina, where the Gamecocks seem to
always flirt with relevancy before petering out
in the second half of the season. Granted it's
hard to get a win over Tennessee in Knoxville,
however, Spurrier did it routinely when he was
the head coach at Florida. Just makes you
wonder how many more times he can with-
stand lumps on the head from SEC teams he
used to dominate ...
Despite Florida State's struggles in 2009,
Christian Ponder might be the best passer in
the country. The junior has already thrown for
2,453 yards with 13 touchdowns and just three
interceptions and has completed about 70 per-
cent of his passes. How he isn't on the Davey
O'Brien watch list for top quarterback honors
is puzzling.
John L. Crawford's column appears Wednes-
days. E-mail him atjlcrawford727@aol.com.

(plus 10) and Dorsey (plus 7) on the same
team and Tom Gray (83, plus 1), the team
took first place at plus 18.
An all-plus team of Hydie Peterson (plus
8), Sammy Alvarez (77, plus 4) and Tom
Roberts (78, plus 3) came in second with a
plus 15.
There was a tie for third and fourth places
at plus 5 between Jack Harrison (88, plus 4),
Bruce Porter (88, plus 4), H. Hewitt (104,
minus 3) and Doug Morris (90, plus 3), Doug
Wolfe (87, plus 2) and Steve Raszkin (90,
even).

a three-under-par 70 and plus 10 points to
take honors. Dennis Sassenger had an 83 and
plus 7 to finish second.
Two players, Jerry Dean (73) and Larry
Luett (77), shared second and third at plus 6.
There was a three-way tie for fifth place at
plus 4 between Hydie Peterson 077), Simon
Carter (79) and John Rudd (94).

. PGATour officials canceled the weather-stricken Viking Classic on
Saturday because of unplayable course conditions. There will be
no makeup date for the tournament. Officials postponed, then
canceled play Thursday and Friday moorings -after nearly
constant rain. There had been hope officials might shorten the
tournament to 54 holes and play next week or weekend, but
groundskeepers didn't think the course would dry out that quick-
ly. "I told.them this was closer to a FEMAdisaster site than a golf
course," tournament director Randy Watkins said. "Somebody
asked if you could play somewhere else. I don't think you could
play golf within 150 miles of here." This was the first time a tournament has
been scrapped outright because of weather since the 1996 AT&T Pebble

Hood's last cast a winner in Wytt trout tournament


- "I was just about ready to
disengage the pair of power
poles from the sandy, shell-
strewn bottom when Scott
Hood made one last cat,"
SCapt. Terry D. Lacoss said.
"We had to be back at the
Dee Dee Bartels park and
Sboat-ramp to weigh in our
catch of reds, trout and floun-
der by 1 p.m. and we had only
minutes to spare."
Hood has fished just about
every one of the 16 Knox
Wyatt Memorial Trout
Tournaments and is a two-
time past winner with a 3.1-
pound trout in 2003 and a 2.8-
pound trout in 2006. In 2008,
Hood weighed in his:largest
trout at just over five pounds,
but was beaten by brother-in-
law Jeff Bennett, who
weighed in a monster of a
trout at 6.9 pounds.
"This was going to have be
my last cast," Hood said.
"While my shrimp drifted
slowly over the shell bottom
in Tiger Basin, a big fish took
the shrimp with only seconds
to spare. The big trout came
to the surface with head shak
ing gestures to free the small
S, trout hook that eventually . -
held its ground until the big
speck was netted."
Hood went on to weigh in


the largest
trout during
the 16th
annual Knox

Tournament.
It weighed
2.4 poinuds.

tournament fishermen with
their awards.

had a perfecttide.with a flood
tide arriving at sunrise anida -
low tide at 1 p.m., however
backwater fishing didn't real-
ly pick up until later in the
morning when low tide
arrived.
"We had only a few small
trout to show for our efforts
during the first few hours of
the morning's flood tide,"
Fussell said. "I waited patient-
ly for the tide to fall and,
when it was right, we fished a
large bay with oysters and
boat docks. That's when the
fish began to bite and we
ended up with a nice catch of
fish."

extremely well liked and avid

loved to both catch and eat

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 recreationaluse 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.
Muzzleloading gun season runs 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 permitwhen
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

The Nassau Sport Fishing Association
meets the second Wednesday of each month
at 7:30 p.m. and the fourth Wednesday at 7
p.m. at the Ten Acres Kraft Athletic Club.

New boating laws
SThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and other law enforcement agen-
cies are alerting Floridians of new laws and
enhancements to existing laws that deal with
boating under the influence, boating safety
education, waterway markers, possession of
gasoline on a vessel and destruction of coral.
The enhanced penalty for BUI is the same
as it is for driving under the influence. The
blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level of
0.'20 that was a violation in the past has
changed to 0.15.
Beginning Jan. 1, any boater born on or
after Jan. 1, 1988, will be required to take an
approved boating safety course and possess an
FWC-issued boating safety identification card.
And if they purchase a boat they have 90 days
from to obtain a boating safety ID card.
Another prohibited activity is placement
and use of a waterway marker that does not
conform to the U.S. Aids to Navigation System
nor have an FWC permit. It's also unlawful for
boaters to moor to government-placed water-
way markers or lawfully placed waterway
markers except in emergency situations or
with written consent of the marker's owner. It
is illegal to possess or'operate a vessel with
nonconforming or unapproved gasoline con-
tainers or to transport gasoline in an unventi-
lated or improperly ventilated compartment.
Laws regarding titling, numbering and regis-
tration now apply to any vessel operated, used
or stored on state waters except vessels lawful-
ly stored at a dock or marina. Visit
MyFWC.com/Boating for details.

"What can I say about Steph," Durr said. "She
is doing everything right She's on her way back
to Dade City for some unfinished business.
"She is obviously an incredible athlete and she
is equally an incredible person and team leader.
Our freshman girls, who are the future.for Pirate
cross country, are learning what it takes to be a
champion from Stephanie. Needless to say our
future looks bright because of Stephanie and
our fantastic freshman trio of Taylor Sweet,
Janica Castro and Lana Tomassetti.
"Christina (Strasser) is also looking incredi-
bly strong and we think she is working her way
back to Dade City as well. Annie Page, Sheila
Sipes, Cassie Moore and Taylor Rowland have
also been extremely solid for us and give us
hope for the future.
"Coach Roy Benson has been providing us
with his secret workouts that have really helped
Sus get to a new level this year. Our program is
continuing to grow and strengthen. We are excit-
ed about the recent and distant future."

Tolerance for competing ideas


S ome friends of mine have been calling
recently, encouraging me to attend vari-
ous concerned citizens or "patriot"
group meetings. They were concerned,
they said, about the future of our Constitution,
our country. They were concerned, they said,
that we were becoming a socialist country and
that government was trying to control virtually
every aspect of our lives, re-distributing wealth
and taking over the economy. I declined their
invitations, not because I don't fear for the
future of our country, I do, but our fears are
decidedly different.
I have always believed that ore of the great-
est things about this country was the right of
belief- the right to believe what you want to
Sand to express it, debate it, discuss it, defend
it There was a marketplace of competing
beliefs in which all Americans could partici-
pate, regardless of age, gender, socioeconomic
level, race or any other qualifier. The competi-
tion was real, the participation prolific and the
country tolerant. Tolerance, you see, tolerance
of different, competing beliefs is, in my opin-
ion, an essential American value and my fear is
that it doesn't exist anymore, that the market-
place of competing ideas has gone away.
The marketplace for competing ideas has
been replaced by the marketplace for the same
ideas; we divide ourselves into groups and we
seek out radio and television stations that
preach our political/philosophical gospel and
all others are labeled un-American or un-patri-
otic..This marketplace for the same ideas
rejects free entry of competing ideas and their
only debate; the only discussion is marked by
the screaming voices of talk show hosts and
other talking head entertainers. We simply are
intolerant of others' beliefs.


One of my favorite things
to do was watch William E
Buckley's show, Firing Line. I
didn't agree with him on
much of anything, but I was
fascinated by his use of lan-
guage and I enjoyed listening
to the debate, the civil debate.
I particularly enjoyed listen-
DE AD A ing to his discussions with
DEBATE John Kenneth Galbraith, an
AND openly liberal economist. Mr.
TACK E Buckley and Mr. Galbraith
would debate ideas, some-
-- "- times passionately, always
Ron Sapp with respect, but neither
would think of calling the
other un-American or un-patriotic. Times have
changed and my fear is that their level of dis-
course simply wouldn't work today - not enter-
taining enough, wouldn't hold an audience -
too, well, non-confrontational.
So where does that leave me and you? Are
you patriotic or are you un-American. Well, I
consider myself a patriot and very proud to be
one. I love my country, served four years in
the Air Force and believe, devoutly, in our
Constitution and way of life. I am aware, every
day, that all of us stand on the shoulders of
previous generations who worked and sacri-
ficed in so many ways and died on far away
battlefields so that we might live a better life,
so that we could live freely.
Some, though, might consider me un-patri-
otic, un-American, I mean, consider:
(1) I'm a Democrat and voted for and con-
tinue to support President Obama.
(2) I'm a liberal; I believe that Americans
have a natural right to decent health care,.


housing, education, etc. These are not privi-
leges, in my view; they're rights, and if govern-
ment has to step in and make sure that all
Americans enjoy these rights, so be it.
(3) I believe that if we are going to send our
sons and daughters into war, then the goal and
mission has to be clearly defined. In my opin-
ion, blind allegiance to some nebulous cause is
not a particularly flattering cultural trait and is
clearly not an American one.
(4) I believe that government has a role to
play in the economy. Some say that the gov-
ernment - first the Bush/Cheney
bailout/stimulus, then the Obama bailouts -
should have let the markets fail, then, out of
the economic rubble, stronger markets would
have emerged. Well, in my opinion, these argu-
ments are made from a point of philosophical
convenience and safety - the government did
prevent the financial markets from collapsing,
similarly the banking, housing and other
industries, so we don't know what would've
happened if the safety net hadn't been there.
There are other issues, of course, but the
heart of my argument, I hope, is clear: we can
differ philosophically, we can read the'
Constitution differently, we can view interna-
tional obligations and foreign policy in a differ-
ent way and we can disagree over the role of
government in our lives, but maybe we can
step outside the safety of our warring groups
for awhile and re-enter the marketplace for
competing ideas. The marketplace for the
same ideas is not only boring and un-stimulat-
ing, but it can be a dangerous place, a place of
labels, stereotypes and stigmas. A place where
we can stop seeing each other for what we are
- Americans.

Noise
Don't you find it unfortunate that
at a time when our Fernandina
Beach city economy is in a fragile
State, we still find ourselves bicker-
ing over what constitutes "loud and
obnoxious" noise ("Noise com-
plaints echo in city," Oct 28)?
Back in May, when the city of
Fernandina Beach began to con-
sider rewriting its noise ordinance,
the leadership of the Amelia Island-
Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber
of Commerce asked commission-
ers to use some type of scientific
measurement to define noise or nui-
sance levels. The chamber's board
of directors felt that leaving the deci-
sion of what's "plainly audible" to
an individual's discretion instead of
using a definable standard, such as
a decibel level, was likely to create
confusion about what constitutes a
.--Jispe violations,
;n,:: hhi e..revised noise..ordinance
adopted by the city, however, left
the determination of a noise violation
a subjective one. That decision now
appears to be generating exactly the
-kind of uncertainty and antagonism
I believe commissioners hoped to
alleviate by revising the city's noise
ordinances.
Without a specific form of meas-
urement, such as a decibel meter
commonly used throughout the
country to measure noise impacts,
subjective opinions will continue to
generate confusion and heated argu-
ments. Enforcement becomes dis-
cretionary, and confidence in gov-
ernment erodes.
I encourage the Fernandina
Beach City Commission to revisit
the noise ordinance and set defin-
able, measurable standards that will
make the ordinance easier for our
residents and business owners to
abide by and easier for our police
officers to enforce.
James L. Shroads
Immediate Past Chairman
of the Board
Amelia Island-Fernandina
Beach-Yulee Chamber of
Commerce

Noise citations
According to ("Noise complaints
echo in city," Oct 28), the ordinance
"prohibits ... amplification of sound
in such a manner as to disturb the
peace, quiet and comfort of the
neighboring inhabitants."
The.report stated an officer was
approached by a complainant in the
convenience store parking lot next
door to the River's Edge who was
concerned about the volume of
music.
I doubt the complainant is an
"inhabitant" of the parking lot. That
observation should form a key part
of the winning defense.

Obamas agenda
I admire your guts to print the
"Impeach Obama" (Oct. 21) material
in the first place, especially in a
small-town paper.
With the government talking
about bailing out failing large papers
(taking control of our press) and
the fact that President Obama could-
n't have gone to Pakistan on an
American visa since Pakistan was
on the no-travel list at our state
department - he must have
used a foreign passport requiring
him to give up his American citi-
zenship.
He surrounds himself with other
socialist/communists and has an
agenda written by his registered
Communist advisor Ayers.

Freespeech
In reply to comments on the
Viewpoint "Is it time to impeach
Obama? (Oct. 23):
The constant cries of racism by
Mr. Obama's supporters are tired,
empty and undermine the very pur-
pose of democracy. The "race card"
has become an all too popular means
of quieting relevant discussions
about policy.
To claim that critics simply dis-
agree with Mr. Obama because of
his race is no more than an excuse
to avoid having the difficult conver-,
sation about the growing rift
between the opposing political par-
ties in America.:
Free speech and open dialogue
are the pillars that support effec-
tiveness of our political system.
Recently, liberals have made a con-
certed effort to stifle free speech
by associating conservative princi-
,ples with racism at every turn.
Regardless of which side of the aisle
one supports, we all must agree that
the national political dialogue should
be full and unhindered by partisan
attempts to impute race into the dis-
cussion in lieu of addressing the
merits of differing political ideology
head on.
Mason Stahl

Opinion on opinions
Wow! As an Independent voter, I
was a bit surprised at the uproar
over the "Impeach Obama" article
(Oct. 23). Whether you liked or dis-
liked the article, you would have
thought by some of the comments
that the writers and the newspaper
had committed some type of crime.
Reading some of the obviously
liberal opinions, (you can always tell
them as they can't resist the name
calling - "Rabid Right" and "angry
hate-filled bigots," etc.) one won-
ders when freedom of speech was
outlawed ?
The article expressed one opin-
ion and you expressed yours. That
is our right in this country.
Next time you offer your opin-
ions try using some facts to support
your position rather than childish
namecalling. Maybe then your opin-
ion will be taken more seriously.
Alan Boyer
Fernandina Beach

Arresting
The article in the Oct. 28 paper
about a man named Michael Kilian.
was over-exploited because of being
an outsider to your island. He, a
human being, was not arrested on
Oct 21, but went and turned himself


in on his own and was not only
exploited by your paper but a picture
was submitted in the paper. It is
funny that no other criminal in
Fernandina has their picture pub-
lished along with an article on their
situation. After all, it wasn't mass
murder, he has a drug problem, so
let's make it well-known to all!
Granted, what he did wasn't
right, but the point to be made is
he is not the only person there that

outsiders come here and this is the
result of it!
Antoinette Kilian
Philadelphia

CanAmericans unite?
Most folks who oppose health
care reform offer arguments that
sound like these:
I'm all in favor of health care
reform but what's the big hurry to
do so much? Can't those without
insurance still go to hospital emer-
gency rooms?
Or, I'm in favor of reform but
it's going to cost me and the nation
too much money! I am perfectly sat-
isfied with my own health care. Do
those uninsured people have some
right to health care like mine?
Or, I favor health care reform
and it must focus on cost reductions.
But those fools in government are
never going to be able to success:
fully administer a national health
care system of any kind!
Each of those arguments can be
debated and, hopefully, refuted. But
the real problem is that many, per-
haps most, of those opponents are
motivated by partisan politics. This
is lamentable particularly when we
realize that the Obama Administra-
tion proposals are remarkably sim-
ilar to those offered by Richard
Nixon's Administration, in 1971!
The Nixon proposals fell before
a storm of opposition by Democrats,
led by Sen. Ted Kennedy, just as the
Obama proposals may fall before
Republican attack. Kennedy admit-
ted in later years that a great chance
was missed back then because of
(his) partisan politics.
I can recall when this nation was
united, casting partisanship aside,
from 1941 to 1945. Is it possible
Americans can do that again in the
face of this vital issue?

RFDs
Why is the administration so
bent on having health care in place
by the end of the year? So you can


have an RFID at some point in the
future. With the onslaught ofevery-
one being covered by government
insurance option that means there
would be tons of paperwork and
people to hire and costs would go up
- so in order to keep these costs
down from the get-go or soon there-
after, just mandate an RFID for
everyone in the system. Orders for-
white paper from the mills would
drop drastically - layoffs - and the
going green trees would be left
standing - goals established by Al
Gore and others which have carried
over.
What is an RFID you ask? Radio
Frequency Identification - a com-
puter chip implant on your body.
The FDA approved this device back
in 2004 and industry has perfected
it to the point with many options.
The basic precept is that a 6-14 digit
number is recorded on this device,
an instrument scans its location on
your body and information' is
retrieved from a central or desig-
nated computer information system
within seconds/minutes. The selling
point is when someone comes in
unconscious for medical emergency
treatment the scan is made, all
patient data is known and work can
be done without having to contact
anyone else to find out the neces-
sary information or permission.
Quiet, efficient and a great cost-
buster.
However, this is not mentioned in
the present bill - it's one of those
things that will crop up and need to
be done to stop the escalating
unforeseen costs that government
planners know about. Sound far
fetched, hardly. The next step then
is well - with the cost of monetary
transaction how can we lower those
costs - ah, yes, use the existing chip.
With all of the accounting and mon-
etary jobs going overseas and those
still here on shore the only way to
lower costs is to replace the human.
And the second reason, but most
important, is tracking money for
security reasons. Following suspi-
cious money flow - catching the
crooks and terrorists. This has been
a long and thought-out process by
certain powers to be and the best
way to get it done is to appeal to the
emotions of people - insurance,
security and care for all.
Contact your Congressional rep-
resentatives and voice your opinion
to slow this process down so all the
hidden information can surface.
Ever made a hasty purchase and
wished you could go back and
change it, here is one, act responsi-
bly, contact and prevent or reread
this article in four years and wish.

BUSINESS


Recovery begins to take root


layered with rampant
unemployment,
bankruptcies and
foreclosures, a recovery is
attempting to spread its roots
through the U.S. economy.
The latest figures on the
gross domestic product - the
sum of goods and services
produced by the U.S. econo-
my - came in at a 3.5 percent
annual rate for the latest quar-
ter. Other indicators are also
beginning to point upward as
the country tries to climb out
of a recession the size and
scope of the Grand Canyon.
Somehow, it doesn't feel
like things are recovering for
many of us. Stores and restau-
rants are closing. Your neigh-
bor just lost his job. And
you've cut back spending.
Meanwhile, costs are esca-
lating at a frightening pace.
Taxes, insurance and medical
costs are up. So are electric
bills, having doubled and
even tripled for some in
Nassau County over the last
10 years. Fuel costs have


comedown
from an all-
time high,
but are still
significant.
Emerging
from this
recession
may be dif-
ferent than
STEVE'S previous
]ARKET ones. Our
PLACE financial sys-
tem practi-
cally melted
Steve Nicklas down, corpo-
rate profits
plummeted and all kinds of
mortgages went sour. It came
together this time like a per-
fect storm.
The U.S. economy is like a
super-tanker; it takes time,
skill and perseverance to turn
it around. This, too, will take
time.
But the recent improve-
ment in economic numbers is
hard to ignore. The growth in
the gross domestic product
(GDP) is the first in a year; it
hopefully signals the end of


the fiercest recession in many
years. It is the fastest eco-
nomic pace since the financial
meltdown began in late 2007.
Certainly, economic stimu-
lus measures such as the
"Cash for Clunkers" program
helped inflate the numbers. In
addition, another government
program helped stimulate
home sales.
Pending home sales for
September unexpectedly
surged on a rush to capitalize
on a tax credit for first-time
homebuyers. The index

sales hit its highest level
since December 2006. It was
also the eighth straight
monthly increase.
Another economic yard-
stick, which measures manu-
facturing, rose last month to
its highest level in more than
three years. The Institute for
Supply Management index
showed stronger than expect-
ed manufacturing growth

Chinese manufacturers

This data is hard and con-
vincing. Some of it was driven
by government stimulus
measures, which have helped
the U.S. economy at least get
to its feet as part of regaining
its balance.
Many critics pick apart the
numbers. They contend the
numbers will retreat once the
mammoth dose of stimulus is
pulled away arid the patient
goes off life support. This
remains to be seen. A step in
the right.direction is a good
step, regardless.
While our local economy
did not get hit as hard as
many parts of the country, it
has nonetheless taken longer
to begin a recovery. Our area'
lagged in experiencing the
downturn, and seems to be
trailing in the upturn..
However, positive signs
are cropping up, nationally,
and within the state. We
should begin to feel these tail-
winds - in tourism, in busi-
ness activity, in manufactur-
ing in local mills - before
long. The roots of recovery
should soon be among us.

Financial workshop for teens


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
"With credit cards being
issued so easily to young peo-
ple, it is possible to get into seri-
ous financial trouble very quick-
ly," said Youth' Librarian
Michelle Ford.
"This program really gives
teens a lot of information to
help them avoid that situation."
Teens interested in learning
more about managing their
finances are invited to partici-
pate in a workshop, "Financial
Literacy for Teens," from 6-8
p.m. Nov. 12 and Nov. 19 at the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department Community Room,
1525 Lime St.
Ajoint project of the Nassau
County Chapter of the Florida
Institute of Certified Public
Accountants (FICPA) and the
Nassau County Library System,
the workshop is designed to
provide basic financial literacy
education to teens.
"Teenagers will face impor-


HOMEESSANIMAiS...

A 2ND CHANCE

-',,



*^ '*


tant financial decisions early in
their adult lives, yet (they)
receive little to no financial edu-
cation," said CPA David
Koeninger.
A member of FICPA,
Koeninger is uniquely qualified
to offer training in financial mat-
ters.
"It's important for teens to
have some understanding of
how to handle their money so
that they can make plans for
their future," said Koeninger,
adding that while students may
receive some initial information
in school, it will most likely not
be as detailed as what this pro-
gram will offer.
Through four Power Point
presentations, each lasting
about 50 minutes, teens will


learn financial basics: the three
keys to success; using credit
wisely, including debit and cred-
it cards, college and car loans;
investing in the future using
simple, safe investing princi-
ples; and managing risk such as
identity protection and insur-
ance.
The presentations are
designed to be easy for teens to
understand, to encourage inter-
action between instructors and
students, to provide students
with activities and to provide
references for future use by stu-
dents.
Piloted in St. Johns County,
the program will be offered at
each county in Florida.
For additional information,
contact Forde at 277-7365.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
SNews-Leader 'A reSoonsibilitv to helpd . I


This winter, the city will allow a
local church to operate a "cold night
shelter" when weather drops to 40
degrees or below.
SThe shelter at Fernandina Beach
Church of Christ on South 14th Street
will be open during the winter months
to the homeless and "anyone who
feels their health and safety is at risk
due to the cold.'
S City staff determined that a waiv-
er of the Land Development Code
was not necessary because the shel-
ter is "within the intent of the code and
in alignment with normal operations
of a religious facility."
- According to a letter from City
Manager Michael Czymbor to the
Coalition for the Homeless . of
Nassau County, the church at Jasmine
and South 14th streets will be per-
initted to operate the shelter without
a change in Land Development

Madeline Richard of Citrona Homes recently deliv-
ered $1,000 to the Coalition for the Homeless of
Nassau County for their cold night shelter this year.
The $1,000, from the National Association of Realtors,
was one of five national grants awarded to realtors who
make a difference through community service.
S"If people don't have the basic needs of food and
shelter, they can't enjoy the great things in life. It's our
responsibility to help people in need," said Richard.
The grant will be used to purchase washable sleep-
ing mats.


religious facilities.
According to a letter from the
Coalition for the Homeless, anywhere
from five to 30 people are expected to
use the shelter on cold nights, accord-
ing to estimates from the Little House
Ministry and the Northeast Florida
Community Action Agency, which
provides funds for home winteriza-
tion and utility bills.
The church will have two areas
available for those needing a warm

place to sleep, according to a state-
ment from the Coalition for the
Homeless of Nassau County.
A large multipurpose room with
two restrooms, a kitchen and storage
area will be available for men. A sep-
arate building with another bathroom
will house women and children
overnight. According to the coalition,
the two spaces can accommodate up
to 115 people.
The shelter will open any night


elter'
when the temperature is predicted to
fall below 40 degrees. Doors will be
open at 8 p.m. and close at 10 p.m.
Overnight guests-will be required to
leave by 6:30 a.m. the next day.
Ceris Feakes and Maryellen
Covallo from the Homeless Coalition
are coordinating the project and will
be responsible for determining, based
on the Jacksonville Naval
Observatory, if the shelter will be
open. Members of other local church-
es will also volunteer at the shelter.
Paul Stasi, Salvation Army director
of social services in Jacksonville, will
train volunteers. For more informa-
tion contact Feakes at 415-0611.
According to the Homeless
Coalition, money is being raised
for sleeping mats, blankets, clean-
ing supplies and food to be distrib-
uted evenings and mornings at the
shelter.
First Assembly of God church, also
on South 14th Street, offers perma-
nent accommodations for a limited
number of homeless people.

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
has approved the refund of more than
$85,000 in impact fees to a local devel-
oper.
The commission agreed to refund
$85,812 to Blackrock Crossing, LLC,
owner of the Eagle's Crossing shop-
ping center on the corner of A1A and
Blackrock Road, at its Oct 26 meeting.
Impact fees, which are collected
from developers to pay for new growth,
are usually refunded because they
Shave not been spent within a certain
time frame. That's not the case here,
however, according to County
Coordinator Ed Sealover.
"It wasn't one of these issues that it
was old and it didn't get spent," he
said Thursday. "... They Were entitled
to a refund because they had paid
more than was required for the proj-
ect."
Blackrock Crossing entered into a

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
spent almost $34,000 in discretionary
funds in fiscal 2009. Most of the expen-
ditures went to non-profit agencies.
Each commissioner in Nassau
County receives $5,000 per year in
discretionary funds from state sales
and use tax revenue, according to
Office of Management and Budget
Director Ted Selby. Any money left
over from the previous year's discre-
tionary fund is also carried over. The
county carried over $26,907 from fis-
cal 20'09 to fiscal 2010.
Of the $33,847 in discretionary
expenditures in fiscal 2009,
Commissioner Stacy Johnson spent
the most, $8,764. Commissioner Mike
Boyle spent the least, $5,170.
The largest single' expenditure of
discretionary funds in fiscal 2009 was
$2,500. The funds were released in
April and went to hurricane-proof the
Nassau Oaks Fire Station. In July the
commission approved $2,400 to help
fund the Babe Ruth youth baseball
league's southeast regional tourna-
ment in Fernandina Beach.
Discretionary funds have been
used for everything from conducting
environmental studies on county-
owned property to helping pay for uni-
forms for youth sports teams. Each

had so much to offer and spread
so much love and devotion
while in this world and she will
be deeply missed by all. First
and foremost, she was a very
dedicated Christian and second,
devoted to her loving husband,
her family and friends. She was
very active in the Cursillo move-
ment where her God-given gifts
of music drew others closer to
Christ at that very special place
called Camp Weed in Live Oak,

a Sunday School teacher for the
high school students for many
years and was a former Senior

Lorraine was an active tennis
player, playing in various
leagues and clubs in Amelia
Island and also in Jacksonville.
She also recently participated
in water aerobics. For the past
30 years she owned and oper-
ated Southern Touch, a popular
gift shop oi Centre Street in
downtown Feriandina Beach.
As owner of Southern Touch
she developed many artistic tal-
ents such as drawing, painting,
and needlework and used those
talents to produce gifts that
.were purchased and enjoyed by
many.
She loved kids, especially
her three grandchildren and
like her two sons and husband
was an avid fan of the University
of Florida Gators. She will be
remembered most for her
bright smile and quick wit.
She is survived by her hus-
band, Jim Corbett, two sons Eric
(Marie) Corbett, and James:
Brett "Chunks" (Amy) Corbett,
3 grandchildren, Ella, James
and Austin, 3 sisters Eileen

FEES Continuedfrom 1A
ty in November 2008 and paid
$201,000 toward intersection
improvements at Blackrock
, Road'and A1A. In addition, the
company was required by the
Florida Department of
Transportation to construct
turn lanes at the intersection.
The developer requested an
impact fee refund because of
the FDOT-required expendi-
tures.
Part of the reason for the
refund was an agreement by
the developer to pay for road
improvements, Sealover said.
However, those improvements
may be a long time coming.
"When (the shopping cen-
ter) is 60 percent filled -
which could be a long time
considering the economic con-
ditions - a stoplight has to go
up at that road," he said.
Impact fees ordinarily are
eligible to be refunded if the


COUNTY
Continued from 1A
commissioner identifies a
purpose for.an expenditure,
and by tradition the full
commission approves it
at the discretion of the origi-
nator.
Boyle said there are few
concrete guidelines when it
comes to spending the money.
"It's a very broad term that
says it's to serve the public
good. And that, of course, is
always open to interpretation,"
he said. "I don't think you
would ever want to spend dis-
cretionary funds that would
benefit a .single person or
another elected official.
"To me, the idea behind a
discretionary account is to
allow us to help groups that
were rot included in the budg-
etary process for one reason
or another," he added. "... I
think the term 'discretionary'
does kind of give us some lat-
itude, and I've never seen any-


county has not spent them
within six years. Nassau
County historically has had a
difficult time navigating the
complex web of bureaucracy
required to approve impact
fee projects. In recent months,
however, several such proj-
ects - all related to road
improvement - have been
green-lighted.
"It's always a disappoint-
ment when a situation like this
(refund) arises,"
Commissioner Mike Boyle
said Thursday. "However, we
are now fully engaged in a pro-
gram that will allow us to use
impact fees in a timely man-
ner.
"Prior to this initiative, the
board had not been able to
meet all of the legal standards
required for the expenditure
of impact fees," he added.
"Hopefully those days are
behind us."
rsmith@[bnewsleader.com


body abuse it."
However, Boyle cautioned
that non-profit groups should
not depend year after year on
discretionary contributions
from the commission.
'We try to encourage non-
profits to base their, budgets
on other forms of revenue,
because we don't have the
funds to give them a full budg-
et," he said. "... If they have in
fact done fundraisers and
they're just running a little
short, then if we can support
them, we do.
"We're right in the middle
of the United Way campaign,
and I never want any organi-
zation to view us as a replace-
ment for the United Way," he
added. "I don't want them to
say, 'Well, we won't bother to
support the United Way
because we have the county.'
The United Way is supposed
to help the citizens of this,
county support those non-
profits."

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/STEVE PAJCIC JACKSONVILLE AND AMELIA ISLAND


Harris at club gala


It was almost 30 years ago
when I got the call about
Carla Harris. I don't remem-
ber who the caller was, but he
asked if we could give a col-
lege student a summer job.
My brother Gary and I had
just started our law firm and
still only had a handful of
employees - and didn't need
any more.
I asked "why" and the
caller said, "Well, she's a
freshman at Harvard." I said,
"I went to Princeton and Gary
went to FSU." He said, "Her
mother's a teacher and her
father's a fisherman." I said,
"OK."
Carla knocked it dead that
summer and then came back
at Christmas to sing "0 Holy
Night" with me at our little
firm's holiday party (she was
always pitch perfect). She
then went on to much bigger
things.
Jacksonville has produced
several famous Americans,-
such as James Weldon
Johnson and A. Philip
Randolph, and Carla seems to
be cut from the same
cloth. She's an artist, entre-
preneur and philanthropist
who grew up in Jacksonville
and made her mark in New
York City.
I've employed and
coached almost a thousand
students over the last 30
years, including one who
went on to be the FSU foot-
ball captain and others who

author and community service advocate Carla Hams on

Stanley managing director will be featured at the 3rd Annual

Carlton, Amelia Island.
For more information abuut tickets to the gala fundraiser,

became

(not the same
students!).
k No one com-
pares to
Carla.
Pajcic Carla
went on to
graduate
magna cum laude from
Harvard in economics and
then from Harvard Business
School. Then, like James
Weldon Johnson and A Philip
Randolph, she moved to New
York City. In a few years she
reached the pinnacle of
American business success:
she made managing director
at Morgan Stanley. That same
year she released her first
CD, which was a bestseller on
Amazon.com and was fea-
tured on the CBS Evening
News.
I had lost contact with
Carla, but was following
her fame with Jacksonville
pride. Then my son was
thinking about a summer
job. I told him that "if your
goal is economic success,
there's only one career choice
- New York investment
banker."
He said, "What does that
mean?" I called Carla and she
generously invited us to lunch
at her home. She told Michael
how hard she had worked
and all-the deals she had
made in order to become a


artistic success have always
played second fiddle to her
family.
In November, Carla will be
the featured speaker at the
Nassau County Boys and
Girls Clubs annual dinner. I
have no doubt it will be inspi-
rational. I have no doubt I will
cry.
Steve Pajcic was born and
raised on Jacksonville's
Westside by his carpenter father
and mother, who left teaching
to raise six children. After
attending Princeton University
and Harvard Law School on
scholarships, Steve returned to
Jacksonville and started the
law firm of Pajcic & Pajcic
with his brother Gary. Steve
focuses his volunteer activities
and charitable giving on pro-
viding education and after-,
school opportunitiesfor disad-
vantaged children. He also
maintains a weekend home on
Amelia Island.

Unfairly accused
As many of you can imag-

at reading the article in the
newspaper regarding our fam-

Unfortunately, this is how
we all found out, including my
daughter and son-in-law, that
they were being accused,. My
73-year-old mother had to be
sedated, she was so upset.

an impartial, fair internal inves-

the school system, which
should have included the peo-
ple being accused, to ascertain
if there was an actual crime
committed.

do have the responsibility to

occurred between 1:30-6:45 am.
Oct. 25 at the Nassau Club
apartments at 95140 Wood-

Accordingto reports, a sub-
seqfuent investigation led
authorities to Lafavor, who told
them he had a drug and alcohol
problem. He reportedly said he
had been drinking and got into
an argument with his wife the
night of the incidents. Lafavor
said his anger led him to begin


punching the outside wall of the
building and that escalated to
slashing tires in the parking lot
along with the codefendant, the
reports stated.
Lafavor is being held at the
Nassau County Jail in lieu of
$30,006 bond.

Stun gun used on patient


being arrested at hospital


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

A Nassau County Sheriff's
detective used his stun gun on
a North Carolina man early
Sunday morning after the man
allegedly became violent and
threatened to harm deputies
at Baptist Medical Center
Nassau.
Following a short hospital
stay, James Robert Lewis, 25,
of Rockingham, N.C., was
being placed under arrest for
possession of a controlled sub-
stance without a prescription
and possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana when he
became belligerent, according
to an incident report.
Lewis told deputies he was
a highly trained Special Forces
soldier and associated with the
gang La Familia, the report
stated.
"While placing Lewis in
handcuffs at the hospital, ie
spit saliva onto the right cheek
of (the detective). While
removing the cuffs from the
bedrails, Lewis' became very
violent and threatened to do
bodily damage to the deputies.
He. began to flail his arms-
about, forcing ,(the detective)
to engage his (stun gun) via
drive stun to the left side of
Lewis's chest, After the drive
stun, Lewis complied with our
orders without incident," the
report stated.
"Drive stun" is a function
of a stun gunin which it is held
against the body without fir-
ing the projectiles, and is
intended to cause pain without
incapacitating the person.
According to Wikipedia, a


Lewis Carpenter

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police
Department procedural order
from 2004 stated, "The drive
stun causes significant local-
ized pain in the area touched
by the (stun gun), but does not
have a significant effect on the
central nervous system. The
drive stun does not incapaci-
tate a subject but may assist in
taking a subject into custody."
Amnesty International ex-
presses concerns about drive
stun mode on its website.
The organization says "the
potential to use Tasers in drive-
stun mode - where they are
used as 'pain compliance' tools
when individuals are already
effectively in custody- and the
capacity to inflict multiple and
prolonged shocks, renders the
weapons inherently open to
abuse.".
Taser International rejects
Amnesty International's con-
cerns about Taser use causing
deaths, but the company does
caution about the use of the
drive-stun mode. The Taser
training manual advises care
in using drive stun, and notes,
"It is in these types of scenar-
ios that officers are often facing
accusations of excessive force."
Some police departments
in Florida have banned use of


the technique for that reason.
Lewis's arrest came after a
detective searched the 2006
Jeep used by Lewis's girlfriend,
Shelby Koreen Carpenter, 32,
of 940917 Old Nassauville Road
in Nassauville, to drive him to
the hospital. According to the
detective, the car "pulled into
the parking lot at a high rate of
speed without regard to per-
sons or property."
The report said Carpenter
was concerned because Lewis
had passed out and needed
help. Lewis was removed from
the car by hospital staff and
treated, the report stated.
In the meantime, authori-
ties determined that Carpenter
had a suspended license, the
report stated. She was placed
under arrest and a subsequent
search of the vehicle repoit-
edly revealed 17 Xanax pills, a
small baggie of marijuana
stuffed into a pack of cigarettes
in the center console and $449
in cash.
Both Lewis and Carpenter
denied ownership of the mari-
juana and Xanax. Lewis is
being held in lieu of $10,002
bond at the Nassau County Jail
on charges of possession of a
controlled substance without
a prescription, possession of
less than 20 grams of marijua-
na and battery on a law enfor-
cement officer. Carpenter is
being held without bond on
charges of possession of a con-
trolled substance without a pre-
scription, driving,while license
is suspended or revoked with
knowledge and possession of
less than 20 grams of marijua-
na.

in the crash.
Lee was
Lee booked into
the Nassau
w- a Pao B e'Cobity,.Jail
on Saturday and charged with
two counts of vehicular homi-
cide, three counts of reckless
driving with serious bodily
injury and two counts of rac-
ing on the highway. He is being
held in lieu of $225,014 bond.
According to Florida High-
way Patrol Lt. Bill Leeper, the
charges stem from a March 21
crash in which Lee allegedly
cut in and out of traffic as he
drove a 2006 Honda motorcycle
northbound on 1-95 in Nassau
County just after 3 p.m.
Vanessa P. Sinclair, 32, of
Jacksonville was driving a 2001
Chevrolet 4-door and attempted
to change lanes when she
noticed Lee try to pass her on
the right, swerved back to the
left to avoid a collision and lost
control, Leeper said.
Both Sinclair's car and Lee's


motorcycle traveled onto the
east shoulder and overturned
several times.
Sinclair, scheduled to give
birth April 6, and her unborn
child died at the scene, Leeper
said, while Lee was transported
to Shands Jacksonville with
serious injuries that led to a leg
amputation. Three of Sinclair's
passengers, Brittany Parker,
-,L5hi Jaila Rarkeruil2;andM1inha
Sinclair, 9, were also taken to
Shands with injuries, Leeper
said.
According to Leeper, after
a lengthy police investigation,
another motorcycle driver
involved in the race with Lee
was identified as Din Sander-
son, 28, of Savannah. He has
been arrested for misdemeanor
reckless driving and partici-
pating in an unlawful race. His
pretrial hearing will be Nov. 12.
Lee and Sanderson were
both in the Army and stationed
in Savannah at the time of the
crash, Leeper said. Lee's listed
address on his arrest report
was in San Antonio, where he
was apparently stationed at Fort
Sam Houston.
A homicide investigation
report of the accident has not
yet been released, Leeper said.

Man gets 7 years


for DUI death


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader
A Bryceville man was sen-
tenced to seven years in a state
prison Oct. 29 after being
found guilty of DUI man-
slaughter.
Johnathan Lee Benischeck,
18, of 13426 US 301 pleaded
guilty to the DUI manslaugh-
ter charge that stemmed from
a Jan. 24 single-vehicle acci-
dent in which the 1993 Chevy
truck he was driving rolled
over, killing 20-year-old Brian
A. Parsons of Callahan.
Two other passengers in
the truck were unharmed and
another 'sustained minor
injuries after the vehicle trav-
eled off Roy Booth- Road
about 5 miles south of Calla-
han, onto the grassy shoulder,
through a ditch, then over-
turned after crossing the road-
way, partially ejecting Parsons,
who was not wearing a seat-
belt
Beniscleck, who also suf-
fered only minor injuries, was
originally thought to be a pas-
senger in the vehicle. The


Florida
Highway
Patrol ini-
tially con-
ducted its
investiga-
tion think-
ing Parsons
was driving,
Benischeck based on
statements
at the time
from passengers, spokesman
Lt. Bill Leeper said.
But after further investiga-
tion by FHP and additional
statements from the passen-
gers and Benischeck, he was
identified as the driver and
subsequently arrested July 29,
five months after the accident,
Leeper said.
Benischeck was sentenced
to seven years in a state
prison followed by seven years
of probation and his driver's
license was permanently
revoked.
According to the crash
report, the accident took place
at 11:53 p.m. on the night of
Benischeck's 18th birthday.

Smashed pumpkin


leads to arrest


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader
The investigation of a
pumpkin smashing in the Page
Hill area of Yulee early Sunday
morning led to a burglary
investigation and the arrest of
a juvenile.
A Nassau County Sheriffs
detective's investigation led
him to a 16-year-old boy who
admitted to smashing pump-
kins on the 861000 block of
Worthington Drive, according
to an incident report. The
detective also questioned the
boy about a vehicle theft in the
same area, but the boy denied
knowing anything, the report
stated.
The boy's mother consent-
ed to a search of his room and
the detective found a GPS
device wrapped in a white ban-
sinddridifv ackadeif cigdar ttes
and a cigar, the report stated.
According to reports, the
detective discovered an
address on Worthington Drive
programmed in the GPS and
located the owner. The owner
pressed charges for the
smashed pumpkins, the GPS
and the cigarettes, which she


said were stolen from her car.
The boy was arrested and
transferred to juvenile deten-
tion.
Another victim said a
Cuban cigar was missing from
his vehicle and that someone
had attempted to enter his
shed through a window, the
report stated. According to the

ashes missing from the cen-
ter console of her vehicle, a
report stated. Burglars also
made off with two mp3 players,

''cle, however, none'of the miss-
ing items was found in the
arrested boy's possession.
Another suspect also was
questioned and was deter-
mined to be present for the
pumpkin smashing, but after
an interview the boy was
released to his parents.

City allows 'cold night sh
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader 'A responsihilitv to held' 7ij i


This winter, the city will allow a
local church to operate a "cold night
shelter" when weather drops to 40
degrees or below.
The shelter at Fernandina Beach
Church of Christ on South 14th Street
will be open during the winter months
to the homeless and "anyone who
feels their health and safety is at risk
due to the cold."
City staff determined that a waiv-
er of the Land Development Code
was not necessary because the shel-
ter is "within the intent of the code and
in alignment with normal operations
of a religious facility."
According to a letter from City
Manager Michael Czymbor to the
Coalition for the Homeless of
Nassau County, the church at Jasmine
and South 14th streets will be per-
mitted to operate the shelter without
a change in Land Development
Code Section 6.02.21 (E), which pro-
hibits overnight accommodations in


Madeline Richard of Citrona Homes recently deliv-
ered $1,000 to the Coalition for the Homeless of
Nassau County for their cold night shelter this year.
The $1,000, from the National Association of Realtors,
was one of five national grants awarded to realtors who

The Nassau County Commission

ping center on the corner of AlA and
Blackrock Road, at its Oct. 26 meeting.
Impact fees, which are collected
from developers to pay for new growth,

The Nassau County Commission
spent almost $34,000 in discretionary

ditures went to non-profit agencies.
Each commissioner in Nassau
County receives $5,000 per year in
discretionary funds from state sales
and use tax revenue, according to
Office of Management and Budget
Director Ted Selby. Any money left
over from the previous year's discre-
tionary fund is also carried over. The
county carried over $26,907 from fis-
cal 2009 to fiscal 2010.
Of the $33,847 in discretionary
expenditures in fiscal 2009,
Commissioner Stacy Johnson spent
the most, $8,764. Commissioner Mike
Boyle spent the least, $5,170.
The largest single expenditure of
discretionary funds in fiscal 2009 was
$2,500. The funds were released in
April and went to hurricane-proof the
Nassau Oaks Fire Station. In July the
commission approved $2,400 to help
fund the Babe Ruth youth baseball

FEES Continued from 1A
ty in November 2008 and paid
$201,000 toward intersection
improvements at Blackrock
Road and AlA In addition, the
company was required by the
Florida Department of
Transportation to construct
turn lanes at the intersection.
The developer requested an
impact fee refund because of
the FDOT-required expendi-
tures.
Part of the reason for the
refund was an agreement by
the developer to pay for road
improvements, Sealover said.
However, those improvements
may be a long time coming.
"When (the shopping cen-
ter) is 60 percent filled -
which could be a long time
considering the economic con-
ditions - a stoplight has to go
up at that road," he said.
Impact fees ordinarily are
eligible to be refunded if the



COUNTY
Continued from 1A
commissioner identifies a
purpose for an expenditure,
and by tradition the full
commission approves it
at the discretion of the origi-
nator.
Boyle said there are few
concrete guidelines when it
comes to spending the money.
"It's a very broad term that
says it's to serve the public
good. And that, of course, is
always open to interpretation,"
he said. "I don't think you
would ever want to spend dis-
cretionary funds that would
benefit a single person or
another elected official.
"To me, the idea behind a
discretionary account is to
allow us to help groups that
were not included in the budg-
etary process for one reason
or another," he added. "... I
think the term 'discretionary'
does kind of give us some lat-
itude, and I've never seen any-


county has not spent them
within six years. Nassau
County historically has had a
difficult time navigating the
complex web of bureaucracy
required to approve impact
fee projects. In recent months,
however, several such proj-
ects - all related to road
improvement - have been
green-lighted.
"It's always a disappoint-
ment when a situation like this
(refund) arises,"
Commissioner Mike Boyle
said Thursday. "However, we
are now fully engaged in a pro-
gram that will allow us to use
impact fees in a timely man-
ner.
"Prior to this initiative, the
board had not been able to
meet all of the legal standards
required for the expenditure
of impact fees," he added.
"Hopefully those days are
behind us."

body abuse it."
However, Boyle cautioned
that non-profit groups should
not depend year after year on
discretionary contributions
from the commission.
"We try to encourage non-
profits to base their budgets
on other forms of revenue,
because we don't have the
funds to give them a full budg-
et," he said. "... If they have in
fact done fundraisers and
they're just running a little
short, then if we can support
them, we do.
"We're right in the middle
of the United Way campaign,
and I never want any organi-
zation to view us as a replace-
ment for the United Way," he
added. "I don't want them to
say, 'Well, we won't bother to
support the United Way
because we have the county.'
The United Way is supposed
to help the citizens of this
county support those non-
profits."

State cracks down


on unlicensed


contractors


TALLAHASSEE -The state
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation kicked
has conducted 71 proactive
enforcement efforts, issued 60
citations and checked nearly
2,000 licenses since July 1.
The division combats unli-
censed activity through sweeps,
which consist of checking
licenses to ensure compliance
with state laws, and stings,
which consist of undercover
operations that target known or
suspected unlicensed individu-
als. Both operations may result
in the arrest of unlicensed peo-
ple. Penalties for unlicensed
activity can include a fine of up
to $5,000 per incident. Persons
engaging in unlicensed activity
can be charged with a first-
degree misdemeanor for a first
offense.
There are measures con-
sumers can take to protect
themselves. Check licenses by
visiting MyFloridaLicense.com.
Unlicensed activity should be
reported to the department via
the website or by calling, toll-
free, 1-866-532-1440. When hir-
ing a contractor, consumers
should:
* Always ask to see the con-
tractor's license.
* Note the license number
and verify that the license is cur-
rent. To check a license, call
(850) 487-1395 or visit
MyFloridaLicense.com.
* Get a Release of Lien cov-
ering all workers and materials.
This removes your property
from the threat of lien.
* Ask any potential contrac-
tor for references and check
each one.
* Beware of scams when
contractors ask for all the
money up front or will only
accept cash.
* Beware of contractors who


Check licenses
online
The only information a
consumer needs to check
a contractor's license
online is the first and last
name of the contractor; the
name of the business is no
longer necessary.
To verify that a contrac-
tor is licensed:
* Visit
MyFloridaLicense.com.
* Click on "Verify a
License."
* Select "Search by
Name" and click "Search."
* Enter the contractor's
last and first names.
* Select "License
Category" and click

* Click "Search."

arrive in unmarked vehicles,
possibly from out-of-state.
* Be cautious of writing
checks made payable to indi-
viduals, especially when deal-
ing with a company.
* Get everything in writing,
including a detailed description
of the work to be completed, a
completion date and total cost.
* Request from the contrac-
tor a list of all subcontractors
and suppliers who have a con-
tract with the contractor to pro-
vide services or materials.
* Don't sign the certificate of
completion until you are satis-
fied with the work done.

Recovery begins to take root


Underneath a surface
layered with rampant
unemployment,
bankruptcies and
foreclosures, a recovery is
attempting to spread its roots
through the U.S. economy.
The latest figures on the
gross domestic product - the
sum of goods and services
produced by the U.S. econo-
my - came in at a 3.5 percent
annual rate for the latest quar-
ter. Other indicators are also
beginning to point upward as
the country tries to climb out
of a recession the size and
scope of the Grand Canyon.
Somehow, it doesn't feel
like things are recovering for
many of us. Stores and restau-
rants are closing. Your neigh-
bor just lost his job. And
you've cut back spending.
Meanwhile, costs are esca-
lating at a frightening pace.
Taxes, insurance and medical
costs are up. So are electric
bills, having doubled and
even tripled for some in
Nassau County over the last
10 years. Fuel costs have


come down
from an all-
time high,
but are still
significant.
Emerging
from this
recession
may be dif-
ferent than
STEVE'S previous
MARKET ones. Our
PLACE financial sys-
tem practi-
cally melted
Steve Nicklas down, corpo-
rate profits
plummeted and all kinds of
mortgages went sour. It came
together this time like a per-
fect storm.
The U.S. economy is like a
super-tanker; it takes time,
skill and perseverance to turn
it around. This, too, will take
time.
But the recent improve-
ment in economic numbers is
hard to ignore. The growth in
the gross domestic product
(GDP) is the first in a year; it
hopefully signals the end of


the fiercest recession in many
years. It is the fastest eco-
nomic pace since the financial
meltdown began in late 2007.
Certainly, economic stimu-
lus measures such as the
"Cash for Clunkers" program
helped inflate the numbers. In
addition, another government
program helped stimulate
home sales.
Pending home sales for
September unexpectedly
surged on a rush to capitalize
on a tax credit for first-time
homebuyers. The index
measuring pending homes
sales hit its highest level
since December 2006. It was
also the eighth straight
monthly increase.
Another economic yard-
stick, which measures manu-
facturing, rose last month to
its highest level in more than
three years. The Institute for
Supply Management index
showed stronger than expect-
ed manufacturing growth
around the U.S.
Meanwhile, the Chinese
manufacturing sector also


expanded rapidly in October.
Chinese manufacturers
enjoyed their strongest
expansion in 18 months. This
bodes well for a global eco-
nomic recovery.
This data is hard and con-
vincing. Some of it was driven
by government stimulus
measures, which have helped
the U.S. economy at least get
to its feet as part of regaining
its balance.
Many critics pick apart the
numbers. They contend the
numbers will retreat once the
mammoth dose of stimulus is
pulled away and the patient
goes off life support. This
remains to be seen. A step in
the right direction is a good
step, regardless.
While our local economy
did not get hit as hard as
many parts of the country, it
has nonetheless taken longer
to begin a recovery. Our area
lagged in experiencing the
downturn, and seems to be
trailing in the upturn.
However, positive signs
are cropping up, nationally,
and within the state. We
should begin to feel these tail-
winds - in tourism, in busi-
ness activity, in manufactur-
ing in local mills - before
long. The roots of recovery
should soon be among us.

Island. He can be reached at

Financial workshop for teens


HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader
"With credit cards being
issued so easily to young peo-
ple, it is possible to get into seri-
ous financial trouble very quick-
ly," said Youth Librarian
Michelle Ford.
'This program really gives
teens a lot of information to
help them avoid that situation."
Teens interested in learning
more about managing their
finances are invited to partici-
pate in a workshop, "Financial
Literacy for Teens," from 6-8
p.m. Nov. 12 and Nov. 19 at the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department Community Room,
1525 Lime St.
Ajoint project of the Nassau
County Chapter of the Florida
Institute of Certified Public
Accountants (FICPA) and the
Nassau County Library System,
the workshop is designed to
provide basic financial literacy
education to teens.
"Teenagers will face impor-

tant financial decisions early in
their adult lives, yet (they)
receive little to no financial edu-
cation," said CPA David
Koeninger.
A member of FICPA,
Koeninger is uniquely qualified
to offer training in financial mat-
ters.
"It's important for teens to
have some understanding of
how to handle their money so
that they can make plans for
their future," said Koeninger,
adding that while students may
receive some initial information
in school, it will most likely not
be as detailed as what this pro-
gram will offer.
Through four Power Point
presentations, each lasting
about 50 minutes, teens will


learn financial basics: the three
keys to success; using credit
wisely, including debit and cred-
it cards, college and car loans;
investing in the future using
simple, safe investing princi-
ples; and managing risk such as
identity protection and insur-
ance.
The presentations are
designed to be easy for teens to
understand, to encourage inter-
action between instructors and
students, to provide students
with activities and to provide
references for future use by stu-
dents.
Piloted in St. Johns County,
the program will be offered at
each county in Florida.

contact Forde at 277-7365.

'Pitch perfect': Carla Harris at club gala


It was almost 30 years ago
when I got the call about
Carla Harris. I don't remem-
ber who the caller was, but he
asked if we could give a col-
lege student a summer job.
My brother Gary and I had
just started our law firm and
still only had a handful of
employees - and didn't need
any more.
I asked "why" and the
caller said, "Well, she's a
freshman at Harvard." I said,
"I went to Princeton and Gary
went to FSU." He said, "Her
mother's a teacher and her
father's a fisherman." I said,
"OK."
Carla knocked it dead that
summer and then came back
at Christmas to sing "0 Holy
Night" with me at our little
firm's holiday party (she was
always pitch perfect). She
then went on to much bigger
things.
Jacksonville has produced
several famous Americans,
such as James Weldon
Johnson and A. Philip
Randolph, and Carla seems to
be cut from the same
cloth. She's an artist, entre-
preneur and philanthropist
who grew up in Jacksonville
and made her mark in New
York City.
I've employed and
coached almost a thousand
students over the last 30
years, including one who
went on to be the FSU foot-
ball captain and others who


became
judges and
millionaires
(not the same
students!).
No one com-
pares to
LA I Carla.
Pajcic Carla
went on to
graduate
magna cum laude from
Harvard in economics and
then from Harvard Business
School. Then, like James
Weldon Johnson and A. Philip
Randolph, she moved to New
York City. In a few years she
reached the pinnacle of
American business success:
she made managing director
at Morgan Stanley. That same
year she released her first
CD, which was a bestseller on
Amazon.com and was fea-
tured on the CBS Evening
News.
I had lost contact with
Carla, but was following
her fame with Jacksonville
pride. Then my son was
thinking about a summer
job. I told him that "if your
goal is economic success,
there's only one career choice
- New York investment
banker."
He said, "What does that
mean?" I called Carla and she
generously invited us to lunch
at her home. She told Michael
how hard she had worked
and all the deals she had
made in order to become a


Boys & Girls Club forum
Amelia Island will host leading investment banker, singer,
author and community service advocate Carla Harris on
Friday, Nov. 20. The talented Jacksonville native and Morgan
Stanley managing director will be featured at the 3rd Annual
Boys & Girls Clubs Speakers Forum to be held at The Ritz-
Carlton, Amelia Island.
For more information about tickets to the gala fundraiser,
which also features a cocktail reception, sit-down dinner and
silent auction, call the Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau County
Foundation at 261-8666 or visit their website, www.bgcnas-

managing director at
Morgan Stanley. Michael
decided to go to law school,
but we both went to see Carla
singing with her Harlem
choir.
Like James Weldon
Johnson and A. Philip
Randolph, Carla left
Jacksonville to achieve suc-
cess and fame. Unlike James
Weldon Johnson and A. Philip
Randolph in their lifetimes,
Carla has been able to recon-
nect with Jacksonville. She
visits her family several times
throughout the year and on
holidays. She has established
a scholarship for Bishop
Kenny students. She con-
tributed to Nat Glover's
campaigns for sheriff and
mayor.
Then, not too late in life,
Carla married her high
school bowling team buddy
and sweetheart, Victor
Franklin. Economics and


artistic success have always
played second fiddle to her
family.
In November, Carla will be
the featured speaker at the
Nassau County Boys and
Girls Clubs annual dinner. I
have no doubt it will be inspi-
rational. I have no doubt I will
cry.
Steve Pajcic was born and
raised on Jacksonville's
Westside by his carpenter father
and mother, who left teaching
to raise six children. After
attending Princeton University
and Harvard Law School on
scholarships, Steve returned to
Jacksonville and started the
law firm of Pajcic & Pajcic
with his brother Gary. Steve
focuses his volunteer activities
and charitable giving on pro-
viding education and after-
school opportunities for disad-
vantaged children. He also
maintains a weekend home on
Amelia Island.

SUnfairly accused
As many of you can imag-
ine, our families were horrified
at reading the article in the
newspaper regarding our fam-
ily members.
Unfortunately, this is how
we all found out, including my
daughter and son-in-law, that
they were being accused. My
73-year-old mother had to be
sedated, she was so upset.
The stress and humiliation
that this caused our families
could have been avoided had


an impartial, fair internal inves-
tigation been completed within
the school system, which
should have included the peo-
ple being accused, to ascertain
if there was an actual crime
committed.
In a leadership position, we
do have the responsibility to
ensure our business is con-
ducted appropriately, but we
also have a responsibility to the
employee in regards to giving
them the opportunity to defend
themselves against accusations.
I cannot understand why this

I have lived in this commu-

Unfortunately, in the blink of

"If it is in the newspaper," it

The only thing my daugh-

for itself.
As a citizen and taxpayer of

encouraging the Nassau

its policies and procedures on

that bullying does not only hap-

Tolerance for competing ideas


recently, encouraging me to attend vari-
ous concerned citizens or "patriot"
group meetings. They were concerned,
they said, about the future of our Constitution,
our country. They were concerned, they said,
that we were becoming a socialist country and
that government was trying to control virtually
every aspect of our lives, re-distributing wealth
and taking over the economy. I declined their
invitations, not because I don't fear for the
future of our country, I do, but our fears are
decidedly different.
I have always believed that one of the great-
est things about this country was the right of
belief - the right to believe what you want to
and to express it, debate it, discuss it, defend
it. There was a marketplace of competing
beliefs in which all Americans could partici-
pate, regardless of age, gender, socioeconomic
level, race or any other qualifier. The competi-
tion was real, the participation prolific and the
country tolerant. Tolerance, you see, tolerance
of different, competing beliefs is, in my opin-
ion, an essential American value and my fear is
that it doesn't exist anymore, that the market-
place of competing ideas has gone away.
The marketplace for competing ideas has
been replaced by the marketplace for the same
ideas; we divide ourselves into groups and we
seek out radio and television stations that
preach our political/philosophical gospel and
all others are labeled un-American or un-patri-
otic. This marketplace for the same ideas
rejects free entry of competing ideas and their
only debate; the only discussion is marked by
the screaming voices of talk show hosts and
other talking head entertainers. We simply are
intolerant of others' beliefs.


One of my favorite things
to do was watch William E
Buckley's show, Firing Line. I
didn't agree with him on
much of anything, but I was
fascinated by his use of lan-
guage and I enjoyed listening
to the debate, the civil debate.
I particularly enjoyed listen-
ing to his discussions with
DE"BAI John Kenneth Galbraith, an
AND openly liberal economist. Mr.
TACI(LE Buckley and Mr. Galbraith
would debate ideas, some-
times passionately, always
Ron Sapp with respect, but neither
would think of calling the
other un-American or un-patriotic. Times have
changed and my fear is that their level of dis-
course simply wouldn't work today - not enter-
taining enough, wouldn't hold an audience -
too, well, non-confrontational.
So where does that leave me and you? Are
you patriotic or are you un-American. Well, I
consider myself a patriot and very proud to be
one. I love my country, served four years in
the Air Force and believe, devoutly, in our
Constitution and way of life. I am aware, every
day, that all of us stand on the shoulders of
previous generations who worked and sacri-
ficed in so many ways and died on far away
battlefields so that we might live a better life,
so that we could live freely.
Some, though, might consider me un-patri-
otic, un-American, I mean, consider:
(1) I'm a Democrat and voted for and con-
tinue to support President Obama.
(2) I'm a liberal; I believe that Americans
have a natural right to decent health care,


housing, education, etc. These are not privi-
leges, in my view; they're rights, and if govern-
ment has to step in and make sure that all
Americans enjoy these rights, so be it.
(3) I believe that if we are going to send our
sons and daughters into war, then the goal and
mission has to be clearly defined. In my opin-
ion, blind allegiance to some nebulous cause is
not a particularly flattering cultural trait and is
clearly not an American one.
(4) I believe that government has a role to
play in the economy. Some say that the gov-
ernment - first the Bush/Cheney
bailout/stimulus, then the Obama bailouts -
should have let the markets fail, then, out of
the economic rubble, stronger markets would
have emerged. Well, in my opinion, these argu-
ments are made from a point of philosophical
convenience and safety - the government did
prevent the financial markets from collapsing,
similarly the banking, housing and other
industries, so we don't know what would've
happened if the safety net hadn't been there.
There are other issues, of course, but the
heart of my argument, I hope, is clear: we can
differ philosophically, we can read the
Constitution differently, we can view interna-
tional obligations and foreign policy in a differ-
ent way and we can disagree over the role of
government in our lives, but maybe we can
step outside the safety of our warring groups
for awhile and re-enter the marketplace for
competing ideas. The marketplace for the
same ideas is not only boring and un-stimulat-
ing, but it can be a dangerous place, a place of
labels, stereotypes and stigmas. A place where
we can stop seeing each other for what we are
- Americans.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Noise
Don't you find it unfortunate that
at a time when our Fernandina
Beach city economy is in a fragile
state, we still find ourselves bicker-
ing over what constitutes "loud and
obnoxious" noise ( N ..... com-
plaints echo in city," Oct. 28)?
Back in May, when the city of
Fernandina Beach began to con-
sider rewriting its noise ordinance,
the leadership of the Amelia Island-
Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber
of Commerce asked commission-
ers to use some type of scientific
measurement to define noise or nui-
sance levels. The chamber's board
of directors felt that leaving the deci-
sion of what's "plainly audible" to
an individual's discretion instead of
using a definable standard, such as
a decibel level, was likely to create
confusion about what constitutes a
noise violation.
The revised noise ordinance
adopted by the city, however, left
the determination of a noise violation
a subjective one. That decision now
appears to be generating exactly the
kind of uncertainty and antagonism
I believe commissioners hoped to
alleviate by revising the city's noise
ordinances.
Without a specific form of meas-
urement, such as a decibel meter
commonly used throughout the
country to measure noise impacts,
subjective opinions will continue to
generate confusion and heated argu-
ments. Enforcement becomes dis-
cretionary, and confidence in gov-
ernment erodes.
I encourage the Fernandina
Beach City Commission to revisit
the noise ordinance and set defin-
able, measurable standards that will
make the ordinance easier for our
residents and business owners to
abide by and easier for our police
officers to enforce.
James L. Shroads
Immediate Past Chairman
of the Board

Noise citations
According to ( N,.......... ptl:,.,
echo in city," Oct. 28), the ordinance
"prohibits ... amplification of sound
in such a manner as to disturb the
peace, quiet and comfort of the
neighboring inhabitants."
The report stated an officer was
approached by a complainant in the
convenience store parking lot next
door to the River's Edge who was
concerned about the volume of
music.
I doubt the complainant is an
"inhabitant" of the parking lot. That
observation should form a key part
of the winning defense.

Obama's agenda
I admire your guts to print the
"Impeach Obama" (Oct. 21) material
in the first place, especially in a
small-town paper.
With the government talking
about bailing out failing large papers
(taking control of our press) and
the fact that President Obama could-
n't have gone to Pakistan on an
American visa since Pakistan was
on the no-travel list at our state
department - he must have
used a foreign passport requiring
him to give up his American citi-
zenship.
He surrounds himself with other
socialist/communists and has an
agenda written by his registered
Communist advisor Ayers.
Joseph Belle-Isle

Free speech
In reply to comments on the
Viewpoint "Is it time to impeach
Obama? (Oct. 23):
The constant cries of racism by
Mr. Obama's supporters are tired,
empty and undermine the very pur-
pose of democracy. The "race card"
has become an all too popular means
of quieting relevant discussions
about policy.
To claim that critics simply dis-
agree with Mr. Obama because of
his race is no more than an excuse
to avoid having the difficult conver-
sation about the growing rift
between the opposing political par-
ties in America.
Free speech and open dialogue
are the pillars that support effec-
tiveness of our political system.
Recently, liberals have made a con-
certed effort to stifle free speech
by associating conservative princi-
ples with racism at every turn.
Regardless of which side of the aisle
one supports, we all must agree that
the national political dialogue should
be full and unhindered by partisan
attempts to impute race into the dis-
cussion in lieu of addressing the
merits of differing political ideology
head on.

Opinion on opinions
Wow! As an Independent voter, I
was a bit surprised at the uproar
over the "Impeach Obama" article
(Oct. 23). Whether you liked or dis-
liked the article, you would have
thought by some of the comments
that the writers and the newspaper
had committed some type of crime.
Reading some of the obviously
liberal opinions, (you can always tell
them as they can't resist the name
calling - "Rabid Right" and "angry
hate-filled bigots," etc.) one won-
ders when freedom of speech was
outlawed ?
The article expressed one opin-
ion and you expressed yours. That
is our right in this country.
Next time you offer your opin-
ions try using some facts to support
your position rather than childish
name-calling. Maybe then your opin-
ion will be taken more seriously.

Arresting
The article in the Oct. 28 paper
about a man named Michael Kilian
was over-exploited because of being
an outsider to your island. He, a
human being, was not arrested on
Oct. 21, but went and turned himself


in on his own and was not only
exploited by your paper but a picture
was submitted in the paper. It is
funny that no other criminal in
Fernandina has their picture pub-
lished along with an article on their
situation. After all, it wasn't mass
murder, he has a drug problem, so
let's make it well-known to all!
Granted, what he did wasn't
right, but the point to be made is
he is not the only person there that
is damaged by these drugs, but the
only person to advertise his dirty
laundry in the paper to make a point
outsiders come here and this is the
result of it!

Can Americans unite?
Most folks who oppose health
care reform offer arguments that
sound like these:
I'm all in favor of health care
reform but what's the big hurry to
do so much? Can't those without
insurance still go to hospital emer-
gency rooms?
Or, I'm in favor of reform but
it's going to cost me and the nation
too much money! I am perfectly sat-
isfied with my own health care. Do
those uninsured people have some
right to health care like mine?
Or, I favor health care reform
and it must focus on cost reductions.
But those fools in government are
never going to be able to success-
fully administer a national health
care system of any kind!
Each of those arguments can be
debated and, hopefully, refuted. But
the real problem is that many, per-
haps most, of those opponents are
motivated by partisan politics. This
is lamentable particularly when we
realize that the Obama Administra-
tion proposals are remarkably sim-
ilar to those offered by Richard
Nixon's Administration, in 1971!
The Nixon proposals fell before
a storm of opposition by Democrats,
led by Sen. Ted Kennedy, just as the
Obama proposals may fall before
Republican attack. Kennedy admit-
ted in later years that a great chance
was missed back then because of
(his) partisan politics.
I can recall when this nation was
united, casting partisanship aside,
from 1941 to 1945. Is it possible
Americans can do that again in the
face of this vital issue?

RFIDs
Why is the administration so
bent on having health care in place
by the end of the year? So you can


LARRY WRIGHT/THE DETROIT NEWS

have an RFID at some point in the
future. With the onslaught of every-
one being covered by government
insurance option that means there
would be tons of paperwork and
people to hire and costs would go up
- so in order to keep these costs
down from the get-go or soon there-
after, just mandate an RFID for
everyone in the system. Orders for
white paper from the mills would
drop drastically - layoffs - and the
going green trees would be left
standing - goals established by Al
Gore and others which have carried
over.
What is an RFID you ask? Radio
Frequency Identification - a com-
puter chip implant on your body.
The FDA approved this device back
in 2004 and industry has perfected
it to the point with many options.
The basic precept is that a 6-14 digit
number is recorded on this device,
an instrument scans its location on
your body and information is
retrieved from a central or desig-
nated computer information system
within seconds/minutes. The selling
point is when someone comes in
unconscious for medical emergency
treatment the scan is made, all
patient data is known and work can
be done without having to contact
anyone else to find out the neces-
sary information or permission.
Quiet, efficient and a great cost-
buster.
However, this is not mentioned in
the present bill - it's one of those
things that will crop up and need to
be done to stop the escalating
unforeseen costs that government
planners know about. Sound far
fetched, hardly. The next step then
is well - with the cost of monetary
transaction how can we lower those
costs - ah, yes, use the existing chip.
With all of the accounting and mon-
etary jobs going overseas and those
still here on shore the only way to
lower costs is to replace the human.
And the second reason, but most
important, is tracking money for
security reasons. Following suspi-
cious money flow - catching the
crooks and terrorists. This has been
a long and thought-out process by
certain powers to be and the best
way to get it done is to appeal to the
emotions of people - insurance,
security and care for all.
Contact your Congressional rep-
resentatives and voice your opinion
to slow this process down so all the
hidden information can surface.
Ever made a hasty purchase and
wished you could go back and
change it, here is one, act responsi-
bly, contact and prevent or reread
this article in four years and wish.

Nassau County to get a


'Reality Check' Thursday


On May 21, Reality Check
First Coast brought nearly 300
leaders from the public, private
and non-profit sectors together
in groups to discuss, analyze
and develop growth scenarios
for the 1.6 million new people
and 650,000 new jobs expected
to be added to this region by
2060.
At the Reality Check First
Coast event, regional leaders
were challenged to rethink
where and how to grow the
First Coast in a way that adds
value to the local economy,
while preserving the environ-
ment and quality of life.
By placing Lego bricks on
large-scale regional maps,
Reality Check First Coast par-
ticipants constructed growth
scenarios and were able to
review and compare the
patterns created in the exercise.
The first implementation

'More bad news' for Floridians:


Higher taxes, cost cuts ahead


University of Florida

GAINESVILLE - Florida's
consumer confidence re-
mained flat in October, a level
more in line with economists'
expectations than the initial
increase that was recorded last
month, according to a new
University of Florida survey.
"Consumers are more opti-
mistic this month about their
current personal finances and
less optimistic about the U.S.
economy in both the short and
long term," said Chris
McCarty, survey director of
UF's Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. "They
remain bullish on buying
opportunities and are likely to
be even more optimistic when
they see the drastically lower
prices in the coming months
from retailers trying to boost
holiday sales among the most
cautious U.S. consumers since
the Great Depression."


City to 'Preserve America)


The city of Fernandina
Beach has officially been des-
ignated a I',. " ... i . America"
community.
Preserve America is a fed-
eral program designed to
encourage and support com-
munity efforts to highlight and
protect cultural and natural her-
itage. As a Preserve America
community, Fernandina Beach
is eligible for grant opportuni-
ties, and will be featured on the
program's website and in
National Park Service heritage


tourism publications.
First Lady Michelle Obama
sent a letter of designation to
Mayor Susan Steger on Oct. 7,
and a formal presentation to the
city commission will be
announced upon receipt of the
designation certificate.
Fernandina Beach is the
18th community in Florida to
receive this special designation.
For information visit www.
preserveamerica.gov/or call
Advisory Council on Historic
Preservation at (202) 606-8503.


However, as the holidays
approach, most forecasts pre-
dict no growth in retail sales
over what turned out to be an
extremely disappointing 2008
season, McCarty said.
"Floridians should prepare
for more bad news through
the first quarter of 2010," he
said. "If retail sales growth is as
low as expected, sales tax rev-
enues will not meet expecta-
tions."
With decreasing revenues
and increasing costs, the state
could see a $2.6 billion budget
deficit, McCarty said. "That
will mean increased taxes and
fees and certainly more cost-
cutting by the Florida
Legislature as the spring ses-
sion unfolds," he said.
September's final consumer
confidence index dropped
from the initial reported read-
ing when an additional week of
interviews were included in
survey results at the end of
the month, McCarty said.
Florida's consumer confidence
index had slowly inched up
from July to August and
September before stalling in
October, he said.
"The revision downward
and the flat reading this month
is more in line with what we
had been expecting," McCarty
said.
Two of this month's five
components increased while
three declined. Perceptions as
to whether it is a good time to
buy big-ticket items and per-
ceptions of personal finances
now compared with a year ago
rose. Expectations about U.S.
economic conditions over the
next year, expectations about


U.S. economic conditions over
the next five years and per-
ceptions of personal finances a
year from now fell.
Florida's economic picture
remains mixed, when housing,
the stock market and retailing
are all taken into considera-
tion, McCarty said.
"Home prices in most
Florida markets have held
steady over the past few
months although they are
down an average of 43 percent
from the peak values reached
in June 2006," he said. "It is
unclear how much of this sta-
bility is due to activity from
first-time home buyers who
took advantage of the $8,000
tax credit due to expire Dec.
1."
The most recent mortgage
applications survey from the
Mortgage Bankers Association
showed a large decline in appli-
cations for both new mort-
gages and refinancing, sug-
gesting that sales may fall in
the coming months without
the tax rebate, McCarty said.
Potentially, this could decrease
home prices even more, even
though prices are already
down to 2002-3 levels, he said.
In other bad news, unem-
ployment in Florida has risen
to 11 percent, McCarty said.
With retail sales remaining
quite low, that will likely con-
tribute to further unemploy-
ment in many of the state's
metro areas as the holiday sea-
son unfolds, he said.
And as unemployment
rises, the number of Floridians
on Medicaid will continue to
climb, increasing costs to tax-
payers, he said.

(The other) Georgia


- a magical land


PHOTOS BY PAT FOSTER-TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
The fertile soils of Georgia give rise to a diversity of domestic fruit and grain varieties,
as this fruit vendor's stand shows, left. Sheepherders move their animals from the
mountains to the lowlands in the fall.


I 'm writing this column
from Georgia, a magical
country in the Caucasus
region surrounded by the
Black Sea and the countries of
Turkey, Armenia, Russia and
Azerbaijan. Georgia is blessed
with snow-capped mountain
ranges higher than our Rocky
Mountains, with fertile crop-
land and vineyards resem-
bling California, and a warm
sea coast where oranges and
kiwi fruit grow next to the
warm Black Sea. In between
are wetlands that are home to
hundreds of thousands of win-
tering waterfowl, and gorges
that define the migratory
route for more birds of prey
than you will ever see else-
where in a lifetime. And all
this is found in a country
about the size of South
Carolina.
The Georgians have a leg-
end about their country. It is
said that God was giving out
land and people were lining
up to get their parcels. One
chunk was given to Europe,
more chunks to Africa, some
to North America - you get
the picture. Eventually, after
long waits in line, all those
people present got their land.
But the Georgians were not in
the line. They hate lines, then
and now. Instead, they went
off to the side and began
drinking and eating and toast-
ing each other and God and
the world. "Here's to your
health. Here's to our friend-
ship! Here's to your happi-
ness! Here's to God's health
and happiness!" And, in typi-
cal Georgian fashion, then and
now, time got forgotten and
eventually everyone was full
and drunk.
When the Georgians final-
ly remembered about the land
giveaway and staggered over
to God, all the parcels of land
had already been allocated.
But God was happy with the
Georgians. He liked their spir-
it and good will and joy of life
and thankfulness. So he decid-
ed to give them the last
remaining parcel, one that he
had kept for himself. This
land had high mountains,
plenty of clean water and fer-
tile soils, an ocean shore, wet-
lands and lakes and lots of
wonderful useful plants and
animals, all in one small piece.
God decided to move up to
live in heaven and gave this
magical place to Georgians
where they live to this day.
Georgia is indeed amazing.
It's a land with all the natural
features of the United States,
in just a small area. For a
country this size, the biodiver-
sity - the number of plant and
animal species - is the best in
the world. The people of this
country are also among the
most hospitable on Earth. I'm
here to do a biodiversity
assessment of these resour-
ces for the U.S. Agency for
International Development
and I'm working with a very
knowledgeable and likeable
Georgian conservationist,
Ramaz Gokhelsahivili. Toget-
her we are interviewing ex-
perts and touring some of the
protected areas, landscapes
and unique sites. It's a tough
job but somebody has to do it.
The small size of Georgia
means that many of these dif-
ferent habitats are only sepa-
rated by hours of driving, not
days, like it would take in the
United States. In one day, for
instance, we traveled east

tains, with lower slopes cov-
ered with old growth beech,
chestnut and hornbeam trees,
which have never been
logged. Waterfalls full of
drinkable water flowed down
the mountain, and artesian
wells spouted freely around
the landscape. Unlike most

included, access to ample

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Jason
Yurgartis of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, the city of Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the "We Tip" program - 1-
800-78CRIME - also allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.
Vandalism arrests
The Nassau County Sheriff's
Office arrested a man and a
juvenile for criminal mischief
after several cars were vandal-
ized last week at the Nassau
Club apartments.
Joshua Cody Lafavor, 22, of
95138 Woodbridge Pkwy., Apt.
204, in Nassauville was arrested
Oct. 26 for
five counts of
criminal mis-
chief after
tires were
slashed on
four vehicles
and the tail-
lights broken
Lafavor on two oth-
ers. A 14-year-
old accom-
plice was charged with one
count of felony criminal mis-
chief and one count of misde-
meanor criminal mischief.
According to reports, the
pair caused an estimated $2,385
total damage to the vehicles.
Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies were investigating the
vandalism that victims believe
occurred between 1:30-6:45 a.m.
Oct. 25 at the Nassau Club
apartments at 95140 Wood-
bridge Pkwy.
According to reports, a sub-
sequent investigation led
authorities to Lafavor, who told
them he had a drug and alcohol
problem. He reportedly said he
had been drinking and got into
an argument with his wife the
night of the incidents. Lafavor
said his anger led him to begin


punching the outside wall of the
building and that escalated to
slashing tires in the parking lot
along with the codefendant, the
reports stated.
Lafavor is being held at the
Nassau County Jail in lieu of
$30,006 bond.
Jail arrest
Authorities tacked on addi-
tional charges after a Yulee

sed into the Nassau County Jail

found to be in possession of var-
ious prescription pills.
Heather Lanette Flowers, 33,
of 86242 Augustus Ave., was
arrested Oct. 29 for concealing
information to obtain a pre-
scription when an investigation
revealed she

Stun gun used on patient


being arrested at hospital


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader

A Nassau County Sheriff's
detective used his stun gun on
a North Carolina man early
Sunday morning after the man
allegedly became violent and
threatened to harm deputies
at Baptist Medical Center
Nassau.
Following a short hospital
stay, James Robert Lewis, 25,
of Rockingham, N.C., was
being placed under arrest for
possession of a controlled sub-
stance without a prescription
and possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana when he
became belligerent, according
to an incident report.
Lewis told deputies he was
a highly trained Special Forces
soldier and associated with the
gang La Familia, the report
stated.
"While placing Lewis in
handcuffs at the hospital, he
spit saliva onto the right cheek
of (the detective). While
removing the cuffs from the
bedrails, Lewis became very
violent and threatened to do
bodily damage to the deputies.
He began to flail his arms
about, forcing (the detective)
to engage his (stun gun) via
drive stun to the left side of
Lewis's chest. After the drive
stun, Lewis complied with our
orders without incident," the
report stated.
"Drive stun" is a function
of a stun gun in which it is held
against the body without fir-
ing the projectiles, and is
intended to cause pain without
incapacitating the person.

Lee booked into
the Nassau
County Jail
on Saturday and charged with
two counts of vehicular homi-
cide, three counts of reckless
driving with serious bodily
injury and two counts of rac-
ing on the highway. He is being
held in lieu of $225,014 bond.
According to Florida High-
way Patrol Lt. Bill Leeper, the
charges stem from a March 21
crash in which Lee allegedly
cut in and out of traffic as he
drove a 2006 Honda motorcycle
northbound on 1-95 in Nassau
County just after 3 p.m.
Vanessa P Sinclair, 32, of
Jacksonville was driving a 2001
Chevrolet 4-door and attempted
to change lanes when she
noticed Lee try to pass her on
the right, swerved back to the
left to avoid a collision and lost
control, Leeper said.
Both Sinclair's car and Lee's


r~5~A

motorcycle traveled onto the
east shoulder and overturned
several times.
Sinclair, scheduled to give
birth April 6, and her unborn
child died at the scene, Leeper
said, while Lee was transported
to Shands Jacksonville with
serious injuries that led to a leg
amputation. Three of Sinclair's
passengers, Brittany Parker,
15; Jaila Parker, 12; and Elisha
Sinclair, 9, were also taken to
Shands with injuries, Leeper
said.
According to Leeper, after
a lengthy police investigation,
another motorcycle driver
involved in the race with Lee
was identified as Din Sander-
son, 28, of Savannah. He has
been arrested for misdemeanor
reckless driving and partici-
pating in an unlawful race. His
pretrial hearing will be Nov. 12.
Lee and Sanderson were
both in the Army and stationed
in Savannah at the time of the
crash, Leeper said. Lee's listed
address on his arrest report
was in San Antonio, where he
was apparently stationed at Fort
Sam Houston.
A homicide investigation
report of the accident has not
yet been released, Leeper said.

Man gets 7 years


for DUI death


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
A Bryceville man was sen-
tenced to seven years in a state
prison Oct. 29 after being
found guilty of DUI man-
slaughter.
Johnathan Lee Benischeck,
18, of 13426 US 301 pleaded
guilty to the DUI manslaugh-
ter charge that stemmed from
a Jan. 24 single-vehicle acci-
dent in which the 1993 Chevy
truck he was driving rolled
over, killing 20-year-old Brian
A. Parsons of Callahan.
Two other passengers in
the truck were unharmed and
another sustained minor
injuries after the vehicle trav-
eled off Roy Booth Road
about 5 miles south of Calla-
han, onto the grassy shoulder,
through a ditch, then over-
turned after crossing the road-
way, partially ejecting Parsons,
who was not wearing a seat-
belt.
Benischeck, who also suf-
fered only minor injuries, was
originally thought to be a pas-
senger in the vehicle. The


Florida
Highway
Patrol ini-
tially con-
ducted its
investiga-
tion think-
ing Parsons
was driving,
Benischeck based on
statements
at the time
from passengers, spokesman
Lt. Bill Leeper said.
But after further investiga-
tion by FHP and additional
statements from the passen-
gers and Benischeck, he was
identified as the driver and
subsequently arrested July 29,
five months after the accident,
Leeper said.
Benischeck was sentenced
to seven years in a state
prison followed by seven years
of probation and his driver's
license was permanently
revoked.
According to the crash
report, the accident took place
at 11:53 p.m. on the night of
Benischeck's 18th birthday.

Smashed pumpkin


leads to arrest


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
The investigation of a
pumpkin smashing in the Page
Hill area of Yulee early Sunday
morning led to a burglary
investigation and the arrest of
a juvenile.
A Nassau County Sheriff's
detective's investigation led
him to a 16-year-old boy who
admitted to smashing pump-
kins on the 861000 block of
Worthington Drive, according
to an incident report. The
detective also questioned the
boy about a vehicle theft in the
same area, but the boy denied
knowing anything, the report
stated.
The boy's mother consent-
ed to a search of his room and
the detective found a GPS
device wrapped in a white ban-
dana, two packs of cigarettes
and a cigar, the report stated.
According to reports, the
detective discovered an
address on Worthington Drive
programmed in the GPS and
located the owner. The owner
pressed charges for the
smashed pumpkins, the GPS
and the cigarettes, which she


said were stolen from her car.
The boy was arrested and
transferred to juvenile deten-
tion.
Another victim said a
Cuban cigar was missing from
his vehicle and that someone
had attempted to enter his
shed through a window, the
report stated. According to the
report, the man was able to
identify the cigar the boy had
because of its rareness. The
cigar wrapper was found near
the shed.
Another victim on
Worthington Drive reported
an urn containing human
ashes missing from the cen-
ter console of her vehicle, a
report stated. Burglars also
made off with two mp3 players,
a garage door opener and $60.
According to the report, there
were scratches around the dri-
ver's side of her unlocked vehi-
cle, however, none of the miss-
ing items was found in the
arrested boy's possession.
Another suspect also was
questioned and was deter-
mined to be present for the
pumpkin smashing, but after
an interview the boy was
released to his parents.

Pirate harriers clinch county title


BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Pirate harriers domi-
nated the Nassau County cross
country meet Thursday on the
Greenway.
"Mission accomplished for
the boys team," said Mark
Durr, cross country coach at
Fernandina Beach High
School. "We set out for a perfect
score and we earned it.
"This group of young men
are the most committed, hard-
est working and most pleasant
of any team I have ever been
associated with. These guys
come to practice everyday with
a can't wait attitude. They need
to work out and what makes it
even better is they realize they
are not just doing the work for
themselves but for the team.
"The team is county cham-
pions and that is not lost on
these guys."
Landon Kovalick crossed
the finish line first with a time
of 17:38.
"His times are getting more
amazing by the week," Durr
said. "He ran a 16:53 at the


Bronco Bob Classic last week-
end, a meet in which our boys
team finished fourth.
"My seniors ... are not just
leading the way as far as times
are concerned but they are real-
ly leading by example and
teaching the younger guys
what it means to be a varsity
athlete. Jazz (Tomassetti), our
captain, is our only four-year
varsity runner and has been
the captain now for two years.
"Chris Keffer is the epito-
me of strength and character.
Adam Buechler is our new-
comer and ace in the hole.
Darren and Bradley Bunch are
the No. 1 examples of commit-
ment and their positive attitude
rubs off on everyone.
"We are going to miss these
guys. We think we have a real
shot at getting through districts
and regionals. If there was ever
a group that deserved it, it is
these guys."
The Pirates also claimed
first-place among the girls with
Stephanie Strasser finishing in
18:59.
CROSS Continued on 5B


Landon Kovalick, left, and Stephanie Strasser were the individual county cross coun-
try champions, finishing ahead of the pack for the boys and girls, respectively.
Strasser won several big meets this season, including Ridgeview (Bob Hans Classic),
Embry Riddle (Asics Classic) and Middleburg (Bronco Bob Classic). She finished
seventh in the National Elites Race in the flrunners.com meet in Titusville.

21-6 for


fifth win

Host Pirates

Friday at 7 p.m.
BETH JONES
News-Leader
Derrick "Shocka" Henry
had 280 yards and a trio of
touchdowns Friday to help
steer the Yulee Hornets to their
fifth win of the season. Yulee
defeated the host Interlachen
Rams 21-6 to push the Hornets'
record to 5-3 overall and 2-3 in
the district.
"We still didn't score as
much in comparison to the
number of opportunities we
had to score, and our penalty
situation was very bad on
offense," said Bobby Ramsay,
head football coach at Yulee
High School. "However, we out-
gained them 450-80, so I'm
good with that.
"We had players like juniors
Jose Guilarte and Dejuan
Hightower have their best
games ever and it's great to see
kids deveolp. Both our offen-
sive line and defensive line
played very well and our line-
backing core had its best game
of the year."
Jonathan Knauss had 55
rushing yards, Byron Alder-
man had 50 and Kelvin Rainey
had a catch for 28 yards.
Jake Green had nine tackles
and a sack for Yulee's defense.
Cameron Ponder had five tack-
les for a loss along with two
sacks. Jake Litecky recorded
nine tackles and had an inter-
ception. Mychal Culpepper also
had nine stops and Jacob
Castellanos made six tackles
to go with a sack.
Yulee will host Fernandina
Beach Friday. Kickoff is slated
for 7 p.m.
"It's going to be a great
game and a great atmosphere
Friday night," Ramsay said.
"We know Fernandina Beach

Fernandina falls to the University Christians 39-13


BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Pirates dropped to 2-6
with Friday's 39-13 district loss
to University Christian.
The Pirates have one win in
the district as they head into
Yulee Friday for their final dis-
trict matchup of the season.
University went up 7-0 in the
first quarter and tacked on
another nine points in the sec-
ond quarter and back-to-back
plays.
UC sacked quarterback
Alex Taylor in the end zone for
a safety and then returned the
ensuing kickoff for a score to
take a 16-0 lead with 3:20 left in
the first half.
The Christians scored again
with five seconds left in the first
half to take a 23-0 lead.
On the Pirates' first drive of


the second half, Taylor con-
nected with Tahj Kimble for a
60-yard TD pass. With Robby
Phillips' PAT, the Pirates cut
UC's lead to 23-7.
Another safety pushed UC's
lead to 25-7 and, with just two
minutes left in the third quarter,
the Christians led 32-7 thanks
to a 76-yard touchdown run.
The host Christians tacked
on another touchdown with
4:07 left to play in the game
before the Pirates managed
another score.
Kimble ran in from four
yards out, but the kick was
blocked. University's Christians
cruised to a 39-13 win.
The Pirates head to Yulee
Friday to take on the Hornets,
who are 5-3 after Friday's 21-6
win at Interlachen.
Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Yulee
High School.

Gator win over Bulldogs is an elixirfor offense


Florida's 41-17 blowout of Georgia in
Jacksonville Saturday served a lot of
purposes. First, it clinched the SEC
East and the Gators' primary goal of
getting to Atlanta. Then there was Tim
Tebow's record 50th rushing touchdown of his
career (over the most celebrated Dawg in his-
tory nonetheless). As for recruiting, 17-of-20
can't hurt when a high school superstar is on
the fence between Florida and Georgia.
But where championships are concerned,
Saturday might be looked back upon as a cata-
lyst of sorts. Halloween 2009 might be remem-
bered as the day when the Florida players
stopped playing tight and the Florida coaches
stopped coaching tight.
Florida head coach Urban Meyer admitted
after a less-than-impressive win at Mississippi
State Oct. 24 that everyone in orange and blue
was pressing. Coaches were trying to send in
the perfect play when the Gators reached the
red zone, rather than sticking to the call sheet.
Tebow might have been trying to do a little too


much, pulling the ball down
and running when receivers
were open or forcing it into
coverage when they weren't.
Message boards were rife
with fans wondering what
had happened to the domi-
nating offense from 2008.
But Florida's first two
drives Saturday seemingly
brought back a sense of har-
SPORTS money. The Gators rediscov-
ered the vertical pass and
TALK moved the ball with ease,
which had to produce a col-
JOHN L. elective sigh of relief through-
CRAWFORD out Gator Nation.
After weeks of frustrating
offense, followed by ques-
tions about the Gators'validity as the top-
ranked team in the country, Florida should
come out of the tunnel Saturday in Gainesville
with a renewed sense of confidence.


Saturday was indeed special as it pertained
to records and championship aspirations. And
when all is said and done, it might very well be
viewed as the springboard to championships
- as the day the Gators rediscovered them-
selves ...
As respected and endeared as Georgia
head coach Mark Richt is in Athens, one has
to wonder just how many more times he can
lose to arch rival Florida before his job status
comes into question. The coach probably gets
a pass for Saturday simply because of who was
playing quarterback for both teams. While a
Joe Cox win over Tim Tebow might have
resulted in a new contract for Richt, even the
most ardent Bulldog fans probably didn't
expect it to happen.
Next year might be a different story, how-
ever, with John Brantley stepping under center
for the Gators. With the departure of
Superman, the Georgia faithful will likely roll
into RV City next year fully anticipating a victo-
ry. If it doesn't happen, well there might just


be a few more logs put on the fire under
Richt's seat...
Speaking of coaching careers, Steve
Spurrier can't be having too much fun at South
Carolina, where the Gamecocks seem to
always flirt with relevancy before petering out
in the second half of the season. Granted it's
hard to get a win over Tennessee in Knoxville,
however, Spurrier did it routinely when he was
the head coach at Florida. Just makes you
wonder how many more times he can with-
stand lumps on the head from SEC teams he
used to dominate ...
Despite Florida State's struggles in 2009,
Christian Ponder might be the best passer in
the country. The junior has already thrown for
2,453 yards with 13 touchdowns and just three
interceptions and has completed about 70 per-
cent of his passes. How he isn't on the Davey
O'Brien watch list for top quarterback honors
is puzzling.

days. E-mail him atjlcrawford727@aol.com.

Two players, Jerry Dean (73) and Larry
Luett (77), shared second and third at plus 6.
There was a three-way tie for fifth place at

Who was the only player to successfully defend
his win at the Memorial Tournament?
a) Jack Nicklaus c) Greg Norman
b) Tiger Woods d) Fred Couples
Answer: b) Tiger Woods is the only golfer to win The
Memorial Tournament back-to-back, and he won
three straight years, 1999-2001.


" PGA Tour officials canceled the weather-stricken Viking Classic on
SSaturday because of unplayable course conditions. There will be
no makeup date for the tournament. Officials postponed, then
canceled play Thursday and Friday mornings after nearly
constant rain. There had been hope officials might shorten the
tournament to 54 holes and play next week or weekend, but
groundskeepers didn't think the course would dry out that quick-
ly. "I told them this was closer to a FEMA disaster site than a golf
course," tournament director Randy Watkins said. "Somebody
asked if you could play somewhere else. I don't think you could
play golf within 150 miles of here." This was the first time a tournament has
been scrapped outright because of weather since the 1996 AT&T Pebble
Beach National Pro-Am, which was canceled due to unplayable conditions.


I ab If you have ever watched a tournament
S on television, you will almost always
see a particular"stunt" performed once
during the coverage. A player will get
ready to make his drive/iron shot/putt
and then stop as a menacing insect
S' ^ d has interrupted the procedure. While
insects are quite prevalent through most of the country,
this is usually a trick that the professional is using to
break the tension of the moment. For whatever reason,
the pro is not ready to make his/her shot and decides to
restart the motion. What more convenient way to do
that than to swat the pesky fly out of the way. For the
amateur, we usually do not react the same way. We do
not want to back out of a shot due to fear of embar-
rassment and go ahead and make a terrible shot. The
next time you don't feel comfortable, just stop and
restart your routine and better results will occur.

missing this year was a win. I feel I've been very consistent and to be the leading guy '^-- to defeat Steve Elkington by a stroke to win the

PHOTOS BY TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Paul Braeger, Capt. Terry D. Lacoss, Norman Bray and Scott Hood, standing above
from left, are pictured with a nice catch of tournament fish. Also pictured are Jonah
Braeger and Jace Lacoss. Right, John Esposito, on left, is pictured with his first-place
flounder while Doug Peterson was the overall grand slam winner.


Hood's last cast a winner in Wyatt trout tournament


"I was just about ready to
disengage the pair of power
poles from the sandy, shell-
strewn bottom when Scott
Hood made one last cast,"
Capt. Terry D. Lacoss said.
"We had to be back at the
Dee Dee Bartels park and
boat ramp to weigh in our
catch of reds, trout and floun-
der by 1 p.m. and we had only
minutes to spare."
Hood has fished just about
every one of the 16 Knox
Wyatt Memorial Trout
Tournaments and is a two-
time past winner with a 3.1-
pound trout in 2003 and a 2.8-
pound trout in 2006. In 2008,
Hood weighed in his largest
trout at just over five pounds,
but was beaten by brother-in-
law Jeff Bennett, who
weighed in a monster of a
trout at 6.9 pounds.
"This was going to have be
my last cast," Hood said.
"While my shrimp drifted
slowly over the shell bottom
in Tiger Basin, a big fish took
the shrimp with only seconds
to spare. The big trout came
to the surface with head shak-
ing gestures to free the small
trout hook that eventually
held its ground until the big
speck was netted."
Hood went on to weigh in


the largest
trout during
the 16th
annual Knox
Wyatt
Memorial
Trout
Tournament.
It weighed
2.4 pounds.
OUTDOORS Norman
Bray also
TerryLacoss fished with
Lacoss and
weighed in the largest redfish
at 5.1 pounds. Paul Braeger
was the overall aggregate
trout winner and also fished
with Lacoss.
John Esposito and Doug
Peterson fished with Capt.
Ben Forehand with great suc-
cess. Esposito took first place
in the flounder category with
a 1.12-pound flounder.
Peterson was the grand slam
winner with the only boat to
weigh in a legal flounder, red-
fish and sea trout.
Bill Brooks and sons Don
and Bill Jr. fished with Capt.
Jim Fussell and brought in a
nice catch of redfish, trout
and flounder. Brooks weighed
in the second largest redfish
during the event at 4.12
pounds.
Tournament fishermen


enjoyed redfish on the "half
shell" at the Dee Dee Bartels
park and boat ramp where
trophies were awarded to win-
ners of the tournament. Carol
Wyatt was on hand to present
tournament fishermen with
their awards.
Tournament fishermen
had a perfect tide with a flood
tide arriving at sunrise and a
low tide at 1 p.m., however
backwater fishing didn't real-
ly pick up until later in the
morning when low tide
arrived.
"We had only a few small
trout to show for our efforts
during the first few hours of
the morning's flood tide,"
Fussell said. "I waited patient-
ly for the tide to fall and,
when it was right, we fished a
large bay with oysters and
boat docks. That's when the
fish began to bite and we
ended up with a nice catch of
fish."
Knox Wyatt was an
extremely well liked and avid
backwater fisherman who
loved to both catch and eat
sea trout. Before passing
away in 1993, he was very
active in the Amelia Island
Plantation Fish Club and
helped organize the annual
Amelia Island Plantation


Winners in the recent 16th annual Knox Wyatt Memorial Trout Tournament were,
from left, Scott Hood, largest trout; Norman Bray, largest redfish; Carol Wyatt; Paul
Braeger, aggregate trout; John Esposito, largest flounder; and Doug Peterson, grand
slam winner.

Boat crew trainees wanted
Boat crew trainees are being sought by the
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 14-1,
Amelia Island. Participants must be at least 17
years of age and a U.S. citizen.
Crew training consists of shore-side and
on-the-water activities aimed at teaching new


volunteers the necessary theory and practical
skills required to become a fully qualified boat
crew member. Training is given by qualified
Coast Guard Auxiliary and active duty instruc-
tors on Coast Guard Auxiliary vessels.
Successful completion of the Boat Crew
training permits the auxiliarist to crew any
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary boat within their
district and the potential to serve on board
many different U.S. Coast Guard vessels.
Crew qualified auxiliarists may also advance to
the highest on-water qualification of coxswain,
the small boat skipper. This course includes
heavy weather seamanship, advanced boat
handling, advanced navigation, search and res-
cue and advanced towing. Successful comple-
tion of the coxswain training permits the auxil-
iary member to skipper any U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary boat within their district.
Training for both the crew and coxswain
positions is free. Certain uniforms and safety
equipment are required and not reimbursed,
but may be tax-deductible. For information,
call 261-1889 or visit http://Cgaux7-14-1.org.

Newboat dub opening
A new boat club is coming to Amelia Island,
allowing the use of several boats without the
hassle of owning. Boats will range from off-
shore fishing, open bow deck and cuddy cab-
ins for overnight cruising. There will be
access to other clubs, including in Jacksonville
Beach, where boaters have use of several
yachts. Call Paul Elden at (904) 245-9808.


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.
Muzzleloading gun season runs 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.

NSFAmeets
The Nassau Sport Fishing Association
meets the second Wednesday of each month
at 7:30 p.m. and the fourth Wednesday at 7
p.m. at the Ten Acres Kraft Athletic Club.
Membership is open to the public. Call 261-
9481 or visit www.fishnsfa.com.

New boating laws
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and other law enforcement agen-
cies are alerting Floridians of new laws and
enhancements to existing laws that deal with
boating under the influence, boating safety
education, waterway markers, possession of
gasoline on a vessel and destruction of coral.
The enhanced penalty for BUI is the same
as it is for driving under the influence. The
blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level of
0.20 that was a violation in the past has
changed to 0.15.
Beginning Jan. 1, any boater born on or
after Jan. 1, 1988, will be required to take an
approved boating safety course and possess an
FWC-issued boating safety identification card.
And if they purchase a boat they have 90 days
from to obtain a boating safety ID card.
Another prohibited activity is placement
and use of a waterway marker that does not
conform to the U.S. Aids to Navigation System
nor have an FWC permit. It's also unlawful for
boaters to moor to government-placed water-
way markers or lawfully placed waterway
markers except in emergency situations or
with written consent of the marker's owner. It
is illegal to possess or operate a vessel with
nonconforming or unapproved gasoline con-
tainers or to transport gasoline in an unventi-
lated or improperly ventilated compartment.
Laws regarding titling, numbering and regis-
tration now apply to any vessel operated, used
or stored on state waters except vessels lawful-
ly stored at a dock or marina. Visit
MyFWC.com/Boating for details.

CROSS Continued from lB

"What can I say about Steph," Durr said. "She
is doing everything right. She's on her way back
to Dade City for some unfinished business.
"She is obviously an incredible athlete and she
is equally an incredible person and team leader.
Our freshman girls, who are the future for Pirate
cross country, are learning what it takes to be a
champion from Stephanie. Needless to say our
future looks bright because of Stephanie and
our fantastic freshman trio of Taylor Sweet,
Janica Castro and Lana Tomassetti.
"Christina (Strasser) is also looking incredi-
bly strong and we think she is working her way
back to Dade City as well. Annie Page, Sheila
Sipes, Cassie Moore and Taylor Rowland have
also been extremely solid for us and give us
hope for the future.
"Coach Roy Benson has been providing us
with his secret workouts that have really helped
us get to a new level this year. Our program is
continuing to grow and strengthen. We are excit-
ed about the recent and distant future."
The FBHS boys won with a team score of

Dear Josie,
Thank you for coming to see your
Nana. What a treat - I just love
grandmothering. Josephine Juliet,
you came to visit and left a trail of
fairy dust everywhere you went. Big
Guy and I look at each other and
wonder how we ever did it - being
parents of such high energy little
people. Your batteries never run
down, but that is what 1 1/2-year-
olds do. Right?
Your little chubby finger contin-
ued to find something to point at.
"Was that?"
You hardly listened to our quick
answers and were on to the next
curiosity that attracted your atten-
tion.
As your visit approached, I strug-


gled to remember
exactly what a 1.5-
year-old would
need or want. What
would you eat?
Where would you
sleep? Out came
the good old Pack
and Play, and a box
full of toys saved
FROM from your father's
THE and uncle's child-
PORCH hood. A brightly
colored Fisher
. '.. Price Humpty
Dickie Dumpty has sur-
Anderson vived and you
enjoyed pulling it
all around the house as it made its
distinctive click clack noise. Wooden


cars, giant Lego and the biggest
favorite of all for visiting kids, the
marble game. Bright glassy marbles
make their way through a wooden
structure that always manages to
amaze and delight. You watched
spellbound and soon were adding
the marbles to the top of the wooden
tower, launching the shiny orbs on
their trip to the plastic bowl waiting
at the bottom.
When you arrived, I wondered
what you would think of your Nana
who you had not seen for many
months. You tumbled out of the
arms of your Dad and looked at your
grandmother and grinned a great
big little girl grin. In fact, it was a
total body grin - the best!
It is fascinating to watch and see


what captures your tiny, busy, grow-
ing mind.
A favorite, and unexpected,
game over the two days of your
visit involved a collection of small
chairs that sit solemnly in front of
our fireplace. You immediately
matched appropriately sized stuffed
animals to the assortment of chairs.
So the zebra, pig and cat were
assigned seats and instructed to
"Sit."
The chairs moved, the pig, zebra
and cat moved, but would always
end up neatly lined up and "sitting"
in their chairs. Long after you, my
treasured little sprite, left, the ani-
mals remain in their chairs in front
of the fireplace.
I learn again what little do. Food


comes in small bites and can be fruit
or vegetables and, if all else fails,
always bring out the "dip." Ranch
dressing makes everything taste
good.
Like your grandmother you are a
book girl - instead of sleeping with a
fluffy, stuffy animal of some sort you
take your books and "read" yourself
to sleep. Not one for soft and
squeeze creatures, you like the look
and feel of a book.
Years from now, hopefully, you
will read this and know how much
your Nana loves you.
Dickie Anderson welcomes your
comments. Books are available at
local book and gift stores or on line at
www.dickieanderson.com.

Auxilians 'behind the scenes'


The Board of Directors of
the Baptist Medical Center
Nassau Auxiliary recognize
the auxilians that serve in the
laboratory, business office
and newborn gifts service
area.
Jack Houston serves as
the coordinator for the labo-
ratory, Emmy Lou Sorum
serves as the coordinator for
the business office, where
auxilian Sally Hall volunteers,
and Joanne Masse serves as
the coordinator for newborn
gifts. The auxilians who serve
in these areas provide unique
services.
The work of the laborato-
ry and business office is main-
ly "behind the scenes," work-
ing only with medical center
staff.
The auxilians serving in
newborn gifts perform their
service from their homes by
knitting the newborn baby
hats, then the coordinator pre-
pares a newborn gift bag for
each baby born at Baptist
Nassau.
The board thanks these
auxilians and their coordina-
tors for their valuable servic-
es.

about these service areas or
volunteering, contact the aux-
iliary office at 321-3818.

needs dogs. Jethro and
Abigail are a cross of Dach-
shund and Chihuahua.
Abigail is reddish brown and
has a Chihuahua face while
her husband Jethro resem-
bles a Dachshund with his
black and tan colors, but his
ears look more Chihuahua!
These two were aban-
doned in a home for a couple
of weeks before being discov-
ered by animal control. They
were both heartworm positive
but are doing well through
their treatment.
They truly love and rely on
each other like any couple
who have been together for 6
or 7 "dog" years and are
sweet and loving and just
need a warm home!
Jethro, Abigail and many
other wonderful pets are
available for adoption at the


Nassau Humane Society, 671
Airport Road in Fernandina
Beach. Call 321-1647 or visit
nassauhumanesociety.com.
We have many spay/neuter
options for pets in Nassau
County through both Spay
Nassau, which can be at no
cost to you if you qualify
financially, or through our
Neuter Commuter which is a
low-cost spay/neuter program
that runs weekly from our
shelter. Both programs are
sponsored by First Coast No
More Homeless Pets. Call
321-1647 to get signed up!


RAIN


Let us introduce to you
"Inky." Fastest at eating a can
of tuna, more powerful than a
four-day-old litter box, and
able to leap the cat tree in a
single bound, it's a bird, it's a
plane, no, it's Inky, the three-
pound wonder. Inky is a sweet
little girl who was rescued by
one of our volunteers from
the wheel well of a car
stopped at a red light.
She is a black domestic
long-hair with flecks of white.
We estimate Inky to be about
10 weeks old. She is the
smallest in the cattery but


does very well with all of the
adults. If you would like to
know more about Inky and
her friends here at RAIN,
please call (904) 879-5861 or
e-mail us at rainhumane
@yahoo.com.


STARS


Orson is the sweetest little
12-week-old, black and white
"Poogle" in town! His mom
was a poodle, his dad a beagle
and he got the best of both
breeds. We expect him to be
20-25 pounds full grown.
Save the Animals Rescue
Society does not run a shelter.
Animals are fostered by
STARS members until a suit-
able and caring home is
found. STARS needs new fos-
ter homes in order to rescue
more animals and increase
adoptions.
If you are interested in
adopting a STARS dog, please
visit our website at www.star-


sofamelia.org and fill out an
adoption application. Thank
you.
