into the future," said Smith in
the company press release. He
could not be reached for com-
ment Tuesday.
One of the RMI investors is
John A. Griswold, president of
Harbor Hotel Investors, LLC.
Griswold has more than
30 years' experience in the
ownership, operation and
management of .hotels and
resorts.
There will be no "interrup-
tion" in Plantation manage-
ment, employees were told,
though changes are coming.
Longtime Amelia Island Co.
vice presidents Norman Bray,
who is retiring, and Richard.
Goldman, who has resigned,
will be leaving before year's
end.
Goldman will become
director of the Convention and
Visitors Bureau in St.
Augustine. He said his move
was "not connected" to the
bankruptcy filing but was a
"pop-up opportunity" that had
arisen ,unexpectedly.
Healan will continue in his
position through the bank-
ruptcy process, if not longer.
"(If) we have new owners -
they have the right to make a,
change later," he said. He said
he would move to fill the man-
agement positions being vacat-
ed.
Employees were told in an
e-mail Friday there would be
"adequate financing to sustain
operations at current levels,
including maintaining facilities
and amenities like golf cours-
es, tennis courts, restaurants,
spa and shops."'
Chapter 11 protection "will
affect how much vendors
and other creditors are paid
on past invoices and debt....
Those vendors who continue
to do business with the
Plantation will be paid on a cur-
rent basis," the company
wrote.
The Plantation has numer-
ous local vendors, from fish-
mongers to carpet-cleaners,
that might lose out on payment
for services already rendered.
(The News-Leader is one of
the vendors that might not be
paid a relatively modest
amount for advertising serv-


ices.)
The company payroll has
dropped by more than 200
employees from its peak of
1,100, and remaining employ-
ees have had their pay cut 40
percent after mandatory fur-
loughs. Among those cut were
the top golf course manager,
executive chef and other
administrative positions.
Property owners were
reported to be apprehensive
as they attended small coffees
at which representatives of the
company and new investors
group offered reassurance.
Hundreds attended the month-
ly meeting of the Amelia Island
Club on Monday.
"We don't really know
where all this is headed," said
Al Watson, president of the
club's board, after the meet-
ing. "Our position is to look at
this as a positive move by the
company.
"We Welcome the decisive
step they've taken. We're opti-
mistic."
Amelia Island Co. owns all
of the resort and recreational
facilities and amenities on
Amelia Island Plantation,
including the Amelia Island
Club. The club has about 1,400
members who pay initial
deposits and monthly dues for
use of the Ocean Club, fitness
center, golf and tennis facili-
ties and other social facilities,
depending on their level of
membership.
Club members were not
listed as creditors in the fil-
ing, which means their initial
deposits, which can be as
much as $75,000, are still
refundable. The club might
take ownership of its facilities
and be established as a sepa-
rate entity as part of the pro-
ceedings.
The Amelia Island Planta-
tion Community Association
is the homeowners' associa-

erty owner assessments and

with business as usual" though
some expenses have been
deferred. The company has
not paid about $175,000
owed to the community asso-
ciation, according to the court
filing.
Hanks said the association
has been "well managed and
operates conservatively" and
is deferring nonessential
expenses, such as road paving,
while keeping-essential serv-
ices such as security and land-
scaping at normal levels.
The association is acting on
the assumption that "this is
temporary, that we will all get
through" by the end of 2010,
Hanks said.
The Plantation has been
bankrupt before. Richard L.
Cooper, an Ohio businessman
who died last year at 82, pur-
chased the property from the
Sea Pines Co., in 1978. Sea
Pines Co., which developed
Hilton Head Island, S.C., orig-
inally bought 3,000 acres on
the south end of Amelia Island
that was proposed for a strip
miie, but ultimately ran into
financial difficulties in rede-
veloping it.
Healan was an accountant
with Sea Pines Co., and he and
Bray, also with Sea Pines, have
been part of Plantation man-
agement for more than three
decades. The company is now
owned by the Cooper family
trust.
A proposed merger with
Redquartz Developments
Atlanta, a real estate invest-
ment company affiliated.with
Redquartz Developments, Ltd.,
of Dublin, Ireland, fell apart
earlier this year. Thatcompany
signed a memorandum of
understanding in January that
could have led to $60 million in
investment at the Plantation,
but the deal was not consum-
mated.

Most Nassau students not


vaccinated for swine flu


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader

The Nassau County Health
Department is offering vacci-
nations against H1N1 swine flu
in county schools. However, the
majority of students have not
been vaccinated through the
program.
The vaccination program is
ongoing, said Environmental
Health Director Wade Spark-
man. "We went into the K-5 age
group in the schools, and we've
administered approximately
1,900 doses in the school sys-
tem. That's countywide," he
said. "We project around the
first week of December, depend-
ing on the shipment of the vac-
cine, we will go into the high
schools and the middle schools,
and we'll be administering
approximately 1,200 doses
then."

Although Brush has'not
issued a final report, Sealover
said it appears Cooper will be
cleared of the alleged safety vio-
lations.
"In the verbal calls I've had
with Mr. Brush, he said in nei-
ther case were the lives of the
firefighters involved in those
fires put in jeopardy," he said.
However, Sealover said the
union's allegations of unpro-
fessional conduct had raised
concern.

receive the vaccination,
Sparkman said. Thus far, the
health department has received
consent to vaccinate less than a
third of the county's 11,070 stu-
dents.
"We have, countywide, 3,107
parental consents total," he said.
"It's around 30 percent, 31 per-
cent (of the total student popu-
lation), approximately."
The Health Department has
so far provided 269 doses of vac-
cine for Callahan Elementary
School, 313 for Callahan Inter-
mediate, 96 for Bryceville Ele-
mentary, 254 for Yulee Primary,
310 for Yulee Elementary, 300


I think it was a combination of
factors," he said. "... There was
some concern about his man-
agement style on the part of the
board, and there was also some
concern about what was the
relationship between manage-
ment and labor, and its impli-
cations for the future.
"It's a situation where there
was, particularly on the side of
the county commissioners, a
lack of confidence and a desire
to go in another direction."
Cooper, for his part, blamed
political machinations within
the firefighters union for both
the investigation and his resig-


for Hilliard Elementary, 160 for
Southside Elementary and 230
for Emma Love Hardee
Elementary. Some of those
doses were unused due to stu-
dent absences, Sparkman said.
Sparkman stressed that it's
hard come up with a definitive
total 6f students vaccinated,
since some receive the vaccine
elsewhere.
"We see children in the clin-
ics, too - especially home-
schooled and private schooled,"
he said. "We offer the vaccines
to private schools too. We've
contacted them and are working
with them. And we have, of
course, private providers who've
received the vaccine too, and
they're administering it from
their offices."
Swine flu has killed 160 peo-
ple in Florida, according to the
state health department. There
have been no confirmed deaths
from the illness in Nassau
County.

"They offered me a chance
to-resign or a chance to be ter-
minated. I've gota family to look
after," he said. "I was naive - I
believed that the simple truth
would suffice. I had no idea pol-
itics would play so heavily into
it."
Still, Cooper said, he has
high regard for the firefighters
he's worked with.
"The people of Nassai
County are protected by some
super folks," he said. "The men
and women of Nassau County

Matt Dawkins wears
many hats at Amelia Auto

years, his days have been
busy doing "whatever it
takes" to keep the automo-
bile dealership running
smoothly.
"I have never sold cars
before working for Amelia

have been in the repair side
of automotive since high
school."
Dawkins says the best
part of his job is working
with the public.
"This area is filled with
awesome people. I love what
I do. It's a great feeling when
you are out to eat with your
family and you see a cus-
tomer that you sold a vehicle
to months prior and they tell
you how much they love
their ride."
Owner Lane Mashburn
receives high praise from
Dawkins.
"It's nice to find someone
to work for who really cares
about his employees. I learn
new things from Lane every
day."
Mashburn reflects his
employee's praise by offer-

This is truly one of those bad
news/good news dichotomies.
The bad news is that prop-
erty values in'Nassau County
have declined - precipitously in
some cases. This includes both
residential and commercial
properties.
The good news is that your
property taxes should have also
declined - in most cases. If your
property is worth less - or like-
ly a lot less - it is logical that the
assessed value used for taxing
purposes would be lower. (The
assessed value is set by the
property appraiser; it is multi-
plied by the tax rate to deter-
mine your property taxes.)
But not so fast. The proper-
ty valuation formula is not a per-
fect science; subjectivity is
involved. Here in Nassau
County, most assessed valua-
tions have indeed fallen along
with actual property values.
This decline in the assessed
value is not always as severe as
in the market value, however.
As a property owner, your
recourse is to appeal your prop-
erty assessment - if you do not
agree with it, or think it is too
high. It only costs $15 to file.
And many owners are doing just
that - in record numbers.
Over the last three years,
the number. of appeals has
increased from 100 to 212, and
for this year to 550 (contesting
the valuations of 1,600 parcels).
The reasons may be varied.
There is no denying that
appeals have increased dra-
matically - by 100 to 150 per-

Steve Nicklas right now.
In addi-
tion, property owners are more
inclined to challenge their
assessed values during the
worst real estate market in 30
years. When values are going
up, property owners are proba-
bly more accepting of higher
assessments - and the higher
taxes.
According to the property
appraiser, assessed values have
indeed dropped over the past
year. About half of the 40,000
residential properties received
lower assessments this year; for
commercial properties, some
1,300 of 1,500 properties were
assessed lower.
The property appraiser did
not indicate how much the
assessments were reduced.
Regardless, that means the
assessed values of several hun-
dred commercial 'properties
were either maintained or
increased. In this market, you
wonder how this could happen.
For residential properties,
many are homesteaded, which
means they are protected by a
limit on their assessments.
Apparently, homesteaded prop-
erties faced a slight increase in
assessed values this year


ty values

because of required changes in
a state amendment.
Also, the assessments for
this year are based upon sales
from last year. But again, the
activity for last year was
abysmal by normal standards,
as market values of residential
and commercial properties
plummeted.
The property appraiser is
obligated to reduce valuations
commensurate with the current
market conditions. Many resi-
dents with second homes or
investment properties, and busi-
ness owners, feel this is not
being done timely and accu-
rately.
If market values decline 40
percent, the assessed values
.should also. The property
appraiser contends that
assessed values are already 15
,percent below market values;
so if market values decline by 40
percent, the assessed value will
only fall 25 percent (reflecting
the 15 percent already factored
into the equation).
This does not seem equi-
table. In current market and
economic conditions, residents
and business owners deserve
a break on property taxes. Local
government agencies should
reduce their tax rates (as the
county commission has done),
and the assessed values should
reflect the miserable market
conditions.
The bad news is, well, bad
enough as far as property val-
ues. Let's not make matters
worse with unwarranted taxa-
tion.

WEDNESDAY, November 18.2009 NEWS News-Leader


This was written by Jason
Yurgartis of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriffs
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 - which allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.
Gunpoint abduction
A Fernandina Beach man
was allegedly forced at gunpoint
to drive three suspects to Duval
County just after 1 a.m. Friday
and ordered to hand over funds
from his bank account.
According to a Nassau
County Sheriff's Office report,
the ordeal lasted more than 24
hours, beginning early Friday
morning when a male suspect
asked the man for a ride on
South Eighth Street As the man
entered the vehicle, two more
male suspects forced entry, one
holding the driver at gunpoint
while demanding he take them
to Jacksonville.
According to the report, the
men made the victim drive to an
unknown hotel off of Golfair
Boulevard in Jacksonville, then
reserved a room with his ATM
card. The victim said the sus-
pects waited until about 9 a.m.
Nov. 14, then took him to the
VyStar Credit Union on Atlantic
Boulevard and got money out of
his account, the report stated.
The victim said the men then


drove him to the Arlington area
of Jacksonville, where one of
them fled on foot, the report
stated. The remaining two drove
him back to an unknown street
in Fernandina Beach, parked in
a wooded area, then took off on
foot, the report stated.
According to the report, the
case was forwarded to a detec-
tive in the criminal investiga-
tions division of the sheriff's
office, but no arrests have been
made.
No further description of the
suspects was listed in the
report, but they made off with
approximately $500 in cash, a
cell phone estimated at $75 and
the victim's debit card, the
report stated. The victim was
not injured.
Truck crash
A 17-year-old was arrested
in the early morning hours of
Nov. 10 after a truck he alleged-
ly stole from his brother crash-
ed into two sections of chain
link fence at a Yulee residence.
The boy was westbound on
Pages Dairy Road, the report
stated, when he passed out and
the truck left the roadway, strik-
ing one section of the victim's
chain link fence, then skidding
across the yard and hitting the
fence a second time.
According to the report, the
truck then crossed Ezell Lane,
eventually coming to rest after
the truck hit an electrical box.
The victim heard a loud
noise outside his residence and
found the boy climbing into the

back of the vehicle, the report
stated. When the deputy arrived
on the scene, he found the boy
"laying in the back of the vehi-
cle appearing to be dazed and
confused," the report stated.
Police said he had been huff-
ing a cleaning product.
In addition to an unspecified
amount of damage to the truck,
there was an estimated $5,000
-damage to the fence, the report
stated.
According to the report, the
boy faces possible charges of
vehicular grand theft with dam-
age to property, DUI with prop-
erty damage, and committing
a nonmoving traffic violation
while driving on a suspended
license.
Battery arrest
A Hilliard man allegedly
pushed his pregnant girlfriend
down the stairs, then slashed a
tire on her car with a chainsaw
Nov. 8 after the couple had been
drinking.
William Edward Turner, 43,
of 32252 CR 121 in Hilliard, was
charged with aggravated dom-
estic battery after authorities
responded to the report of dom-
estic violence just before 11 p.m.
According to Turner's arrest
report, the victim said the two
were having a verbal argument
on the front porch that turned
physical when Turner pushed
her, causing her to fall down the
stairs. The fall caused minor
injuries to her left leg and right
hand, the report stated.
Turner is the father of the


unborn child and had prior
knowledge of the pregnancy
before the alleged battery, the
report stated.
According to the report, the
victim said Turner also cut the
rear driver side tire of her car
with a chainsaw so she couldn't
leave.

Suspect in killings


seeks new lawyer


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

A Nassau County Judge pre-
siding over a motion hearing
Nov. 5 recommended a mental
health evaluation for Gregory
David Larkin, who is accused
of murdering his parents in
April.
The motion hearing was
scheduled after Larkin, 35, sent
a handwritten letter from the
Nassau County Jail to Judge
Robert Foster requesting that
Public Defender Brian
Morrissey be discharged as his
legal counsel. Larkin request-
ed a new public defender in the
letter, but listed no grievances,
saying only "I have been mis-
represented."
Foster denied the motion
and additionally recommended
a mental health evaluation.
Assistant State Attorney
Wesley White,.director of the
Nassau County State Attorney's
Office,'said the evaluation was
likely to take place and, if so,
would be conducted by an inde-
pendent expert.
Larkin's parents, Dick and
Myra Larkin, were found beaten
to death in their Caprice Lane
home. Police said the couple
had been dead for days when
they were discovered during a
well-being check.
Police said Larkin had been
living at the'Amelia Island home
since January, and that DNA


evidence
found on
S bloody clothes
in the bath-
room ties him
to the mur-
ders.
Larkin was
Iarkin arrested at a
motel near the
Jacksonville
airport April 18 on charges of
grand theft of a motor vehicle
and having no valid driver's
license, having just returned
from a trip to Mexico for a job
interview. He was driving his
parents' only vehicle, which he
said they let him borrow. On
April 30, he was charged with
their murders.
Dick Larkin; 75, and Myra
Larkin, 73, had been married
51 years. Gregory Larkin is the
youngest of their children, and
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves has said detectives
found no indication he has any
history of violent crime. He had
been operating Aquamor, a fam-
ily-owned diving and kayaking
shop in Costa Rica, a business
his parents reportedly pur-
chased for their children:about
15 years ago, but was consider-
ing selling it due to the eco-
nomic downturn, police said.
Larkin will return to court
Thursday for another pre-trial
hearing. Doug Dorsey is pros-
ecuting the case.

Mother gets probation for child neglect


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

A Fernandina Beach
woman arrested when author-
ities, in the act of breaking up
an open house party, found evi-
dence of child neglect in her
home, will not serve jail time
after pleading guilty to child
neglect with great bodily harm
Thursday.
Kimberly Michelle Barta,
21, of 996 Citrona Drive, #2306
in Fernandina Beach pleaded
guilty to child neglect with
great bodily harm, but adjudi-
cation was withheld. Charges
of possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana, underage
possession of alcohol and open
house party were not prose-
cuted.
Barta was sentenced to two
years' probation and must com-
ply with a DCF case plan, com-
plete a parenting skills class
and a drug and alcohol evalua-
tion and follow-up.
Child neglect with great
bodily harm, a third-degree
felony, carries a maximum sen-
tence of up to five years in


Barta

Barta


prison. But
according to
court docu-
ments, Barta
will serve no
additional jail
time.
Barta was
arrested Oct.
19 after she
admitted to


Fernandina Beach Police that
guests in her apartment, some
under the age of 21, were drink-
ing alcohol and smoking mar-
ijuana.
But along with those attend-
ing the party, police found a
two-year-old and a three-month-
old child, the report stated. The
two-year-old was asleep in a
back bedroom in a crib - lying
on blankets that were "wet and
filthy," the report stated. The
three-month-old was asleep in
a car seat on the floor in a back
bedroom on wet moldy blan-
kets, the report stated.
According to the report,
both children had on only dia-
pers, and authorities were
unable to find items to clothe
them. The three-month old was


shivering from the cold and
holding a bottle of sour milk.
He had "sores under and
around his neck where he had
not been washed," a soiled dia-
per, and was rife with diaper
rash, the report stated.
The apartment was full of
beer cans and bottles, mari-
juana and "filth throughout the
house," the report stated, and
food was caked on dishes
throughout the house and
molded food was observed in
the oven and microwave, the'
report stated. The shower was
filledwith trash and there were
used diapers throughout the
house with bugs crawling on
them, the report stated.
The Department of
Children and Families was dis-
patched and the children were
taken to a safe place, the report
stated. Barta was charged with
aggravated abuse/neglect,
holding an open house party,
possession of alcohol under 21
and possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana.
Barta had previously been
issued a notice to appear for
possession of drug parapher-


nalia on Sept 7 after authorities
entered her home following a
domestic dispute with her live-
in boyfriend, 21-year-old Luke
Deane Morgan.
Morgan allegedly pulled
Barta from the back seat of a
friend's car, dragged her inside
the apartment by her shirt,
punched her several times, bit
her and threatened her with a
kitchen knife. According to
reports, he had been watching
her two children while she was
out until 3 a.m. with friends.
When a police officer
arrived, Barta ran screaming
from the apartment Morgan
fled and, while searching the
apartment, the officer found
drug paraphernalia and mari-
juana residue.
Morgan initially escaped
authorities, but was found a
day later hiding under a bulk-
head in a wooded area behind
Barta's apartment. He was
arrested for aggravated assault
and domestic battery. Morgan
was adjudicated guilty and con-
victed on the aggravated
assault charge and is now serv-
ing two years' probation.


Yulee murder trial now set for Feb. 8


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

A new trial date of Feb. 8
has been set for Mohamed
Salahudin Alnajjar, charged
with second-degree murder in
the Marbh 2008 shooting death
of 32-year-old Yulee . man
Roderick Henderson.
Jury selection is scheduled
to begin Feb. 5 for the 23-
year-old Alnajjar, who has been
held without bond at the
Nassau County Jail since
March 4, 2008, after he report-
edly confessed to shooting
Henderson. He has since plead-
ed not guilty.
The original trial date of
Sept. 14 was delayed after
Alnajjar's attorney, Brian
Morrissey, filed a motion to
suppress any statements,
admissions and confessions


made by Alnajjar to Nassau
County Sheriff's Office inves-
tigators March 34, 2008. Judge
Robert Foster subsequently
denied the motion in chambers
at the Nassau County Judicial
Annex Oct. 30, paving the way
for the new trial date.
Morrissey's motion to sup-
press alleged that investigators
improperly induced statements
from Alnajjar.
According to the document,
"The statements obtained from.
Defendant were not freely and
voluntarily given, and were the
result of threats, promises and
inducements. Said statements
were obtained in violation of
Defendant's rights guaranteed
by Amendments Five and
Fourteen, Constitution of the
United States and Article I,
Section 9, Constitution of the
State of Florida."

It goes on '
to cite specif-
ic details,
including
S"implied and
ex plicit
threats that
the Defen-
Alnajjar dant's wife
would be
prosecuted
and jailed if Defendant did not
confess" and "implied promis-
es of leniency that were calcu-
lated to mislead Defendant into
believing he would receive
some benefit from confessing."
Further, it alleges that
detectives "told him the
amount of time he will serve
depends on whether he con-
fessed or made them prove
their case" and "implied that if
the defendant told them he
shot the victim because he was
afraid, the state would recom-
mend leniency."
According to the document,


a detective told Alnajjar, "I'd
like to tell that man in the suit
(former Assistant State
Attorney Stephen Bledsoe) that
he (Henderson) came at you -
scared you."
Assistant State Attorney
Wesley White, director of the
Nassau County State
Attorney's Office, said he was-
n't overly surprised the motion
to suppress was denied.
"I assume (it was denied)
because the detectives con-
ducted themselves in accor-
dance with the law and did a
fine job," White said.
Alnajjar is charged with sec-
ond-degree murder, carrying
a concealed weapon and tam-
pering with or fabricating evi-
dence. He has pleaded not
guilty.
Henderson was found lying
on Palm Tree Drive in Yulee
about 9:45 p.m. March 3,2008;
he was pronounced dead at the
scene.


Trial delay in Yulee death


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader


A motion to continue was
granted Thursday in the trial of
a Yulee man charged with
manslaughter, third-degree
murder and false imprisonment
in the 2006 death of a deaf man.
A trial date of Nov. 16 had
been set for Michael Dean
Gammons Jr., who is accused
along with brothers Peter Alan
Turlington, 27; and Ralph
ThomasTurlington Jr., 29, in
the 2006 death of Bruce Doss,
22, outside a Yulee bowling
alley.
However, that trial date has
been struck from the calendar.
Gammons and the Turlington
brothers are each scheduled to
appear in court for a pretrial
hearing Dec. 3. The Turlingtons
have already pleaded guilty to
the false imprisonment charge
and currently do not face mur-
der or manslaughter charges,
according to court records.


In July 2008 the Turlingtons
agreed to testify against
Gammons. According to court
documents at the time, the
brothers faced up to one year in
the Nassau County Jail and up
to five years of probation.
Doss died a day after the
three men reportedly held him
down in a ditch outside the
Yulee Bowling Center on US 17
on Dec. 1, 2006. Doss' death
was ruled a homicide shortly
after by the Jacksonville
Medical Examiner's Office.
Reports said Doss, who author-
ities reported had a blood alco-
hol content of 0.26, died as a
result of traumatic asphyxia.
The men initially told police
they were trying to keep Doss
from running onto the road and
getting hurt.
All three were arrested in
June 2007 following investiga-
tions by the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office and the State
Attorney's Office.

Accused of homicide,


soldier back in Texas


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader
A man accused of vehicular
homicide in a March crash on
1-95 in Nassau County that
killed a pregnant Jacksonville
woman and her unborn child
has bonded out of the Nassau
County Jail.
Jen Yung Lee, 23, was
being held in lieu of $225,014
bond until a motion Nov. 4 to
reduce the bond was granted
by Circuit Court Judge Robert
Foster, who cut the amount to
$5,002 cash. Lee is represent-
ed by Jacksonville attorney
Charles L. Truncale.
The motion cited Lee's
need to return to Fort Sam
Houston, an Army base in San
Antonio, Texas, where the
active duty sergeant was
undergoing rehabilitation after
his left leg was amputated as
a result of the crash. The
motion states that a year of
rehabilitation is required for
the injury. Lee's rehab started
in July, the document stated.
The document said Lee
turned himself in to Texas
authorities Oct. 15 after Army
officials told him of an out-
standing arrest warrant in
Nassau County. Lee was
booked into the Nassau
County Jail Oct. 31 and
charged with two counts of
vehicular homicide, three
counts of reckless driving with
serious bodily injury and two
counts of racing on the high-
way.
According to court docu-


ments, ajudi-
cial review
hearing has
been set for
hearing as s
Jan. 14 in
Nassau
County to
reassess the
Lee progression
of the case
and sched-
ule hearings as it moves
toward a potential trial.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports, Lee
was cutting in and out of traf-
fic on his 2006 Honda motor-
cycle as he drove north.on I-
95 in Nassau County on
March 21 about 3 p.m. A2001
Chevrolet four-door driven by
Vanessa P. Sinclair, 32, of
Jacksonville attempted to
change lanes from the middle
to the right, noticed Lee try to
pass her on the right, swerved
back to the left to avoid a col-
lision and lost control, reports
said.
Both Sinclair's car and
Lee's motorcycle'traveled onto
the east shoulder and over-
turned several times.
Sinclair, scheduled to give
birth April 6, and her unborn
male child both died at the
scene, said Lt. Bill Leeper of
the Florida Highway Patrol,
while Lee was transported to
Shands Jacksonville with
injuries that led to a leg ampu-
tation.
Lee was stationed ,in
Savannah at the time of the
crash, Leeper said.

SQI.A


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
An extensive downtown
waterfront master plan project
has been slowed down due to
some construction obstacles.
According to Curtis Burkett
of Zev Cohen Associates, which
has put together the city's
waterfront master plan, Phase
1B of the project cannot pro-
ceed because of "numerous


obstacles" - one of which is
whether Rayonier will allow
the city to use a parcel of
land for a stormwater retention
pond.
Burkett, who is regional
manager of Zey Cohen, expand-
ed.on those problems at a work-
shop Nov. 10 for city commis-
sioners held at City Hall.
Some of those obstacles, he
said, include temporary
removal of waterfront parking,


the downsizing of a, roadwa,
and accommodation of foot traf-
fic while construction is going
on.
But a significant obstacle is
that Zev Cohen's original water-
front design included the pos-
sible use of a triangular-shaped
lot on the south end of the
waterfront for stormwater
runoff.
According to Burkett, dis-
cussions with Rayonier about
use of the parcel "died ... with
no direction back from the city
as to moving storm water."
Moving the storm drainage
underground could increase
costs up to $1.5 million, Burkett
said.
Burkett said Rayonier Inc.,'
which operates a larke paper
.plant southwest of the down-
tpwn project, was initially open
to the idea of the city using the
parcel; but negotiations have
stalled.
'The triangtilar parcel is dif-
ficult for (Rayonier) to use, but
it's very useful for the city,"
Burkett said, which would use
about 2.5 acres of the 5-acre par-
cel for a retention pond.
Mayor Susan Steger sug-
gested city commissioners
restart discussions ' with
Rayonier before any other
portion of the project contin-
les.

Strasser, Pirates advance to state


BETH JONES
News-Leader

Senior Stephanie Strasser repeats as
the Region 1-2A cross country champion.
She finished first among the girls in Talla-
hassee Saturday with a time 6f 18:17.37.
Strasser is the county, district and now
region champion. She moves on to state in
Dade City Saturday. But she is the lone
member of the girls team to advance.
The FBHS boys team advanced to state.
The top six teams qualify and the Pirate
harriers finished in fifth, just eight points
out of third.
"Many of us said it was the best race we
have ever seen," FBHS Coach Mark Durr
said. "We knew our times were really close
to some other schools. We identified
Pensacola Catholic as one of those teams
that could take this away from us and our
guys picked off everyone of the PC guys
that was in front of them in the last mile.
"Our men really manned up. Anyone
can get past somebody in the first 400
meters, but it takes the training and guts
that our guys have to pass people in the
end. These guys are the perfect examples
of what it takes to be a champion. They had
a goal, state, committed themselves to it


and worked their tales off to achieve it. I
could not be prouder or more impressed
with a group of individuals."
'This is Jazz's team. We know he has
been working for four years to get to Dade
City and we will be racing Saturday on his
birthday," Durr said of senior captain Jazz
Tomassetti. "It doesn't get any better than
that. Landon (Kovalick) and Adam (Buech-
ler) led the way for us with Adam achiev-
ing a personal record, which was just what
we needed.
"And the competition with Jazz, Joey
(Collins) and Chris (Keffer), they all are
getting real close to each other, helped us
narrow our gap between our runners,
which is what scores the points you need.
Bradley (Bunch) and Darren's times have
come down dramatically and their train-
ing habits inspire all of us to give that little
extra effort."
Kovalick finished 16th among the boys
with a time of 16:58.87, Buechler was 20th
with a time of 17:09.67, Collins was 30th
(17:42.07), Jazz Tomassetti 47th (18:08.67),
Keffer 53rd (18:17.71), Darren Bunch 69th
(18:58.22) and Bradley Bunch 72nd
(19:05.78).
The FBHS Lady Pirates were just six
points from qualifying for state, finishing in


seventh, so Strasser will make the trip
,alone.
"Stephanie was feeling great and really
ran her race," Durr said of the regional
meet. "She doesn't like to make it close, so
she once again blew away her competi-
tion. We thought the course was going to
be a little faster, but it was real tough for all
of the teams.
"Christina's exceptional high school
career is over, but her impact on Pirate
cross country will remain. The twins are
the only seniors we lose on the varsity
team. Of course, they can't be replaced,
but they have left a successful legacy that
we can build on. They have taught the
younger girls, like our fabulous freshman
trio of Taylor Sweet, Lana Tomassetti and
Janica Castro, what it takes to be a cham-
pion.
S"We think with that base and the con-
tributions of next year's senior leadership
of Cassie Moore and Taylor Rowland, that
we can get back to state.as a team sooner
rather than later."
Christina Strasser finished 17th with a
time of 20:37.14, Sweet was 60th (23:44.21),
Moore was 69th (25:18.53), Rowland was
70th (25:28.29), Lana Tomassetti was 83rd
(29:04.56).

"As a team we're really under-
standing now what it's like to succeed
and what it takes to continue to suc-

Gator defense is UFs real rock star


kI kow it sounds like a broken
record: They are what they
are. But the scene in the end-
zone after the University of
Florida's 24-14 victory over South
Carolina in Columbia Saturday
night might have epitomized the
2009 Gators. After the game, the
team assembled and sang the alma
mater and the fight song in front of
the few thousand Florida fans, who
made the trek north, which has
become a tradition under head
coach Urban Meyer.
The orange and blue faithful typ-
ically use the proximity to get a
high-five, a picture, a lock of hair
(just kidding) of QB Tim Tebow.
But on this night, it was the quar-
terback of the defense, LB Brandon
Spikes, and his compadres getting
the most love. Sure, the crowd
eventually broke into a chant of
'Tebow, Tebow, Tebow," but not
before giving a proverbial embrace
-to the Florida defense.
Three weeks removed from a
showdown with Alabama in
Atlanta's Georgia Dome, it seems
that the Gator Nation is finally real-
izing its bread and butter are the 10
guys rallying around No.,51, rather
than No. 15. The boys opposite
Tebow are Florida's 2009 rock stars
and are most vital to the Gators'
championship aspirations.
This is in no way meant to


demean Tebow,
who in about two
months will com-
plete one of the
most storied
careers in college
football history.
There is no doubt
if No. 15 weren't
taking the snaps,
Florida would not
SPORTS be undefeated. As
Tebow goes, so
TALK goes the Florida
offense.
JOHN L. But when it's
CRAWFORD crunch time, I
think it's safe to
say fans would
rather the game be put in the hands
of the Florida defense. In other
words, they would likely rather see
the defense on the field protecting a
slim lead than the offense having to
overcome a deficit with the game
on the line.
And the defense did it again
Saturday night. With the Gators
holding a 17-14 lead and the
Gamecocks facing a third-and-two
deep in Florida territory on the first
play of the fourth quarter, South
Carolina fans smelled blood. And
that silly guy in the chicken cos-
tume probably started resembling a
buzzard circling its prey to Florida
fans.


But the wounded Gator came
back to life in the form of Justin
Trattou, who intercepted a slant
pass and rumbled 53 yards to the
South Carolina 26. A few clock min-
utes later, Tebow tied the SEC
record for career rushing/receiv-
ing touchdowns and gave his team
a 10-point lead. Game over.
Steve Spurrier and his
Gamecocks deserve credit for their
ability to sustain drives against
Florida's stingy defense. They can
probably also take credit for raising
the collective blood pressure of the
Gator Nation a point or two.
With'that said, the hand wring-
ing in the stands wasn't quite as
intense as it has been Saturday
night. There seemed to be a quiet
confidence that, despite South
Carolina's moderate success on
offense, Florida's defense would
come up with a play when it had to.
And once again, it did.
Quite frankly, the "they are what
they are" cliche is getting old. I'm
tired of writing it and I'm sure
you're tired of reading it. But I
think Gator fans are starting to
believe it. And most importantly, I
think the Gator defense is relishing
in it.

including The Players Championship in 2006.


SOne of the main problems that we
have is that our practice swings are
Just so perfect. The tempo, the flow,
the rhythm are just what we are
after. Then, we realize that it is time
to actually make a real shot. When
' the tension builds up, the amateur
golfer has the tendency to hit at the golf ball instead
of through it. Therefore, a horrible shot is the result
that becomes all too familiar. A good drill to try at
home is to practice your swing using whiffle balls.
You may think that the whiffle ball won't help you
any, but it really is a great help. The basic premise
is that you can swing at the whiffle ball as hard as
you can and it still goes the same distance.
Therefore, the whiffle ball is teaching you to make
a proper swing and always look at the ball and this
practice should carry over to your round.

The Kiwanis Club of Fernandina Beach learned a great deal about Hiroshima and the
first atomic bomb from Bill Crawford, who was an 18-year-old in the Navy, stationed
at Hiroshima a few weeks after the bomb was dropped. Crawford shared pictures and
observations about the total devastation. He said about 125,000 people were killed
and many more were injured. He talked about the Manhattan Project and the deci-
sion to drop the bomb. Above are Kiwanians Bill Dickson, Jeff Shipman, Crawford -

Cookbook a recipe to end domestic violence


For the News-Leader

Capturing the beauty,
charm, and flavors of a day on
Amelia Island, A Savory Place:
Culinary Favorites of Amelia
Island is a new cookbook that
will delight readers with both
culinary treasures and gor-
geous photography, all the
while contributing to a worthy
cause: ending domestic vio-
lence in Northeast Florida.
Beginning as a simple con-
cept to raise funds and aware-
ness, Micah's Place's first cook-
book is a remarkable
achievement that is certain to
delight cooks, cookbook lovers
and those wanting to reconnect
with that "certain something"
that makes Amelia Island such
a wonderful place.
Featuring 170 recipes hand-
selected and carefully tested
by a dedicated team of Micah's
Place Auxiliary members, the
cookbook takes readers on a
delicious journey from
"Beginnings" - appetizers with
an Southern island flair - all
the way through the day to
"Endings" - desserts that cap-
ture the essence of relaxing as
the sun sets over the salt
marsh. Each section also
includes the island photogra-
phyj of Max Hertwick and

Robie Ray, making the book as

as a culinary one.
Since domestic violence is,
at its core, a home-based issue,
a cookbook seems a particu-
larly fitting way to bring aware-
ness and needed funds to a
truly worthy cause. "If we take
into consideration the national
statistic that one out of every
four women is a victim of
domestic violence then you can
be certain that you know some-


one that has bee

even if they are not aware of

This issue is a constant

P1


I am a single, blond,
neutered male (Chihuahua),
only 9 pounds, about 3 years
old looking for a stable rela-
tionship, no players please. I
was found by a kind lady who
had the patience of waiting a
week before I trusted her
enough to let her pet me. I
knew she was an animal per-
son because she already had 5
dogs, and.that explains why
Sshe did not have room for me.
She contacted Stars to see if
they had room for me and
helped pay for my heartworm
treatment, like so many of us
who have been stray, those
darn mosquitoes got me too.
I've been alone for a long
time and have trust issues
that my foster mom says will
take my new family a few days
to gain my confidence. I real-
ly want to have a person of
my own. I have completed my
heartworm treatment and am
now ready for my forever
home. And the advantage of
my not being a puppy any-
more is no chewing, and I
won't mind if you go off to


work and leave me alone for 8
hours because I won't tear the
house up, I'll just rest up and
wait for you.
Save the Animals Rescue
Society does not run a shelter.
Animals are fostered by
STARS members until a suit-

more animals and increase
adoptions.

Amelia Island Co. files for Chapter 11


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Amelia Island Plantation continues
to function normally for now while
awaiting a bankruptcy judge's deci-
sion about its future management and
operations.
Amelia Island Co. filed for reor-
ganization Friday under Chapter 11
of U.S. bankruptcy law, which allows
operations to continue while a court-
approved reorganization is sought.
The company told employees there
would be "business as usual" during
the months-long process.
The company also announced
Friday it has signed an agreement
with a new investor group, Red Maple
Investors, LLC, to provide both short-
and long-term financitig. Funds are


needed immediately
for the company to
meet payroll and
other continuing
obligations.
The investors, all
residents of the
island, would pro-
vide "immediate
Healan interim financing
and long-term finan-
cial planning and
expertise while assuring the uninter-
rupted operation of the resort," accord-
ing to a company press release. The
investors have committed more than
$20 million for future operations.
But that assumes the court recog,
.nizes the bankruptcy plan put forth
by company attorneys in U.S. Middle
District Court. Prudential Financial'


Services Inc. has a $29 million claim
on Plantation property, the largest,
and was expected tb ask that the com-
pany be forced to Chapter 7 bank-
ruptcy, which is liquidation of its
assets.
That might benefit Prudential, but
not other creditors. The judge is
expected to rule later this week on
that initial request Typically, judges do
not force a company into Chapter 7
this early in the process, and there
was optimism that would be the case
this time.
"This is good news, great news,"
Amelia Island Co. President Jack
Healan said Friday after the court fil-.
ing. He said he was pleased that 22
investors, "people that feel that strong-
ly" about the Plantation, formed Red
Maple with the intent of preserving the-


resort.
He said he expected the bank-
ruptcy process to be completed with-
in 90-120 days, and for it to result in a
restructuring of debts, including
Prudential's mortgage.
Healan lauded the local investors -
"such an affection from people that
live here for this place"'- for their will-
ingness to play the lead role in the


restructuring. RMI is a group of high
net-worth Amelia Island Plantation
homeowners formed and led by 19-
year resident Robert C. Smith.
"All of us in RMI want to protect
this little paradise we have come to
love. And we are willing to put up our
own money to assure its success far

State 'fraud' may have cost


RYAN SMITH
,News-Leader


A state investment fund that
crashed in 2007- and in which Nassau
County had about S7.8 million invest-'
ed - is currently under investigation
for fraud by the federal Securities and
Exchange Commission. However,
most of the county's money is now
out of the fund and invested safely,
according to Clerk of Court John
Crawford.
The State Board of Administration
(SBA) handled funds for hundreds of
local governments in F'orida, which
pooled their money to attain larger
investment returns. But those were
threatened when the fund melted
down in 2007. The SEC is now inves-
tigating whether the state of Florida
and three Wall Street firms - JP
Morgan Chase, Credit Suisse and
Lehman Brothers, which collapsed
last year - misled investors about the
risk of the SBA's investments.
Nassau County had about $7.8 mil-
lion in the fund.when it faltered. The
SBAlacked liquidity to pay out at once
all the money it owed local govern-
ments and froze 14 percent of it in a so-
called Fund B for distressed assets.
The money frozen in that fund,
Crawford said, could be stuck there for
up to nine years. The remaining 86
percent, in Fund A, was initially avail-
able if governments paid a 2 percent
fee to withdraw it. As Fund A became
stronger, the fee was discontinued.
Crawford said while some of the
county's money remains in Fund B,


'It's a horrible violation of the trust of
public officials across the state of
Florida. This... is exactly what's been
making us come undone across the
country - misleading by Wall Street
and government officials.'
CLERK OF COURT JOHN CRAWFORD

the majority is now out of the SBA "I have this
entirely. it will always 1
"We've pulled all of our Fund A first realized SI

Fire




chief




opts to




resign

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader.
Nassau County Fire Chief Chuck'
Cooper resigned under duress Friday-
after months of clashes with the fire-
fighters' union and an ongoing inves-
tigation into his professional conduct.
Cooper, who had served as chief
since 2004, accepted a severance pack-
age worth about $53,000, according
to County Coordinator Ed Sealover.
The severance in-
cludes two months'
salary, three
months' payment of
health insurance
benefits and about
$40,000 in unused
leave.
Monday was
Cooper's last day on Cooper
the job, Sealover
said. Assistant Chief
Sam Young was named interim fire
chief, a position Sealover said Young


in the fire department over the last
few months had raised concerns in
the county commission. Cooper
blamed his dismissal on "politics."
"I think that there had been some
difficulties over the last several
months,",Sealover said Monday. He
pointed out Cooper's handling of a
grievance filed by Lt. Curtis Bollinger,
a firefighter accused, and later exon-
erated, of teaching a class without
proper qualifications. In August, the
commission sharply criticized Cooper's
handling of the case and directed him
to issue a formal apology to Bollinger
S"You also had the issues that were
raised by the union relative to the
chiefs management of the department
and how two fires were managed
specifically," Sealover added, referring
to the ongoing investigation. '"Then
you also had those issues related to the
report itself."
The investigation was opened in
July after a letter to Sealover from
Nassau County Fire Rescue
Professionals Local 3101 President
Matthew Waggoner. In it Waggoner
alleged Cooper's actions at two struc-
ture fires caused concern for fire-
fighters' safety. He also charged
Cooper with "a consistent pattern of
abusive language used toward subor-
dinate employees."
Cooper denied the accusations, but
was rebuked last month after he inject-
ed himself into the investigation by
calling Florida State Fire College Safety
Programs Manager Charlie Brush,
who was looking into the alleged safe-

Filkoff is first candidate


for city commission seat


Arlene Filkoff has
announced her intention to file
for candidacy for the Group 1
seat on the Fernandina Beach
City Commission. '
That seat is currently held
by Ken Walker, whose three-
term expires in May. Walker,
who is completing his second
three-year term, may not seek
reelection because of term lim-
its.
"Fernandina Beach has felt
like home to me since I first
crossed the bridge in 1996,"
Filkoff said in a press
announcement. "My husband
Steve and I were so lucky to be
able to join this community
full of wonderful people who
truly care about their city. We
all want our city to be the best
it can be. I am confident that
our best days are ahead of us,
and I am willing to work hard
to make progress in meeting
our community's goals."
Filkoff was reared in Pass
Christian, Miss., and received
her BA from the University of
Alabama in Tuscaloosa; She
spent 27 years heading sys-
tems organizations for
Fortune 500 companies in
Hartford, Conn. There-she
earned accolades for helping
companies significantly
improve customer satisfaction
levels.
She said she believes that
her extensive experience in
improving the quality of
processes within large private

government
"We need'to
make sure
Filkoff that our gov-
ernment is
both effi-
cient and effective and that we
are taking the city in the right
direction," Filkoff said. "That
means understanding where
the people of Fernandina want
it to go. Making sure we have
the right information to
make the right decisions is
critical to our future. We need
to ask the right questions and
get things done in the most
cost conscious way without
sacrificing service to our citi-
zens."
As a community volunteer,
Filkoff has worked with many
local non-profit organizations
to assist them in their strategic
planning process. She has
served on several boards,
including Joy to the Children,
Fernandina Little Theatre and
Friends of the library. She has
held leadership positions in
organizations devoted to chil-
dren and education. Filkoff
serves on the Leadership
Council for Take Stock in
Children; she also mentors a
student in that program.
She continues to serve on
the city's Parks and Recreation


Committee, where she worked
to help bring about more
recreational opportunities for
local youth, such as the new
Atlantic Avenue Teen Center
and. the upcoming Freedom
Playground. Through her
recent service on the
Fernandina Beach Arts
Council she worked to
improve local access to cul-
tural activities. She has first-
hand experience on the local
cultural scene as a performer
as well. She earned praise for
her Amelia Community
Theatre stage debut in their
recent production, 6 Dance
Lessons in 6 Weeks.
"During my campaign I
look forward to talking with
people and listening to their
ideas and concerns about our
city's direction and goals,"
Filkoff said. "I encourage peo-
ple to call or e-mail me. If I
can chat with them even in the
supermarket or on the beach,
I will welcome the opportuni-
ty."
To contact Filkoff and find
out more about her campaign,

filkoff@bellsouth.net
Filkoffis married to Steven
Filkoff, who shares her enthu-
siasm for civic involvement
through his service with the
Police and Coast Guard auxil-
iaries.

to announce for the city elec-
tion next year. Walker's is the
only seat that will be on the

WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 18.2009 NEWS News-Leader


Getting the lowdown in the Caucasus


A scary bridge across a river may deter you, but not our
intrepid correspondent in the Republic of Georgia.


41


( ne of my tasks here
in the former Soviet
Union country of
Georgia is to visit
representative protected
areas to get a first-hand look
at the country's biodiversity
and then to write up a report
for the U.S. Agency for
International Development. A
plum assignment, one would
think.
Well, let
me tell you,
even plums
Shave pits. In
an unexpect-
S ed bit ofcir-
cumstances,
I nearly fell
into one. It
WILD all started
WAYS when I was
hiking with
. my col-
Pat league
Foster-Turley Ramaz along
a rocky path
in a virgin old growth beech
forest, heading to a waterfall.
Suddenly our peaceful silence
was broken by a sound, "flop,
slap, flap," coming from my
feet. My hiking boots were
disintegrating - the entire
bottom of one was falling off.
Apparently Nike hiking boots
do not use permanent glue.
In mere minutes I was
holding my sole in one hand,
and hobbling along in one
boot and one half of a boot.
Then the other boot gave way
too. Now I was wearing just
the uppers of boots, carrying
the bottoms, and limping

along the rocky trail, heading
back to the tourist lodge in
hilarious disgrace.
So the next day, with some
of Lagodekhi Protected Area
still to explore, and bootless, I
came up with a plan. How
about riding a horse? Let the
horse handle the rocky trail,
and then my backup city
walking shoes will not be a
problem. Right.
I found myself on a small
horse with a tiny pommel-less
saddle attached to the horse
only by a thin band under the
girth and an even thinner
band under the tail. Forget
getting up on top of this horse
with grace. It took both
Ramaz and the guide to
shove me on top, and push
the saddle and me upright on
the horse's back and off I
went.
Inexplicably, I was the only
one with a horse. Ramaz
stayed behind to work on the
report, and I was accompa-
nied by a guide who spoke no
English, walking behind me
and the horse, and occasional-
ly calling out "Whoosh,"
which I guess in Georgian
horse talk meant "Giddy-up,"
especially when accompanied
by a slap with a branch.
Bizarre, but hey, this is anoth-
er country, so go with the
flow.
After about an hour on the
horse on a flat'trail through
the woods - one I easily could
have walked even with my
city shoes - we stopped and
in Georgian/English pan-
tomime I was told to dis-
mount. The guide tied up the
horse to a tree. Great, maybe
we're having a picnic or some-
thing up on this plateau.
Wonderful view, soft mossy
ground, I can do this!
But no. While the horse
happily grazed on his long
tether, the guide set off on

country of Azerbaijan.


foot down the merest of goat
trails straight down a steep
gorge and I was forced to fol-
low in my city shoes, slipping,
sliding half down the moun-
tain. Down the gorge we
went, to the bottom I thought,
to look at the river. Another
waterfall, ah, that would be
nice!
But no. We got to the river,'
and there was the rickety-est
of narrow logs breaching the
rapids below. Great. There's
nothing like a log high across
a river to remind me of my
fear of heights and my lack of
balance. But I made it across.
Where was that waterfall? I
was ready for a break.
But no. In front of us now
was the steepest of slopes
with the tiniest of goat trails
heading upwards. Even with
stops every minute or so to

rest, soon the fatigued mus-
cles in my legs turned to quiv-
ering mush and my legs gave
way. The panicked guide lift-
ed me upright ard held my
hand and had to half drag me
up the mountain. What fun.
Finally at the top of the
second steep gorge pass, we
found what we apparently
were seeking- a ruined fort
from the Middle Ages, pro-
tecting the valley. I almost
could have cared less. After a
bit of a rest, though, I started
wandering around, finding
mushrooms, looking for crit-
ters, and trying to forget that
I now had to go down the goat
trail, cross that log, and climb
up the other bank once more.
Oh yeah, I still had to mount
that damn horse again too '
with no big sturdy Ramaz to
help the small guide.
I survived to tell the tale,
but barely, I'm convinced.
And this was only the first of.a
series of field trips! I can't
wait to see what happens
next!

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Aremarkableman
SOur friend, Captain Bob "Mac"
MacGregor, was a remarkable man.
My husband and I sailed home to'
Fernandina Beach in the summer of
2008, and we met Mac shortly there-
after. As fellow live-aboard sailors, my
husband and I became fast friends with
Mac because we immediately had
something in common. Mac had sailed
from Casco Bay, Maine to Fernandina
Beach in 2006. He was always helping
out his fellow sailors
any way he could.
Most of his adult
life, Mac had worked
Sas an arborist, and
his skill in climbing
trees professionally
translated magnifi-
cently to climbing
the masts on sail-
MacGregor boats. Typically,
"going up the mast"
is a task most sailors
prefer to avoid. Not Captain Mac! He
would scurry up the mast and feel right
at home as he easily worked on a tan-
gled halyard, changed anchor or
spreader lights, mounted antennas or
wind speed gauges or any type of mast
work that needed to be done.
Sometimes, you could be walking
down the dock, and you'd hear a pleas-
ant "Mahalo!" coming from out of the
sky! Looking up, there would be Mac
- the source of the traditional Hawaiian
blessing ~ perched like a seabird on a
sailboat's mast! Mac was very handy
with engine repairs, also. He loved
motorcycles, and he was also very
adept at keeping a generator or dinghy
motor in good running order. But if
you wanted to see Mac's spirit really
shine, all you had to do was ask him
about his beloved daughter, Amanda.
He was so proud of her, and he told me
that she was his best friend.'
Mac was quite a talented musician,
and he enjoyed "jamming" with friends
regularly. He told us that he liked every
kind of music, but especially enjoyed
playing blues or bluegrass. Mac's
favorite aspect of those jam sessions
was simply to enjoy sharing the fun


that goes along with playing music
with friends.
It was in that spirit of friendship
and respect that a gathering of many of
Mac's close personal Fernandina
Beach friends was held at the Green
Turtle Tavern in Mac's memory. It was
an honor to share our stories of our
friendship with Mac's father and step-
mother, Jim and Carmen MacGregor.
A memorial service was also held in
Wheaton, Ill. on Nov. 14, with another
memorial service to be held in
Wolfeboro Falls, N.H., on Nov. 21.
Mac died suddenly on Nov. 1, as
he prepared to go sailing with a friend.
He lived life on his own terms, and he
died in the prime of life ~ gone too
soon. Two days after his untimely pass-
ing, I was walking down the dinghy
dock at the marina where Mac was
keeping his sailboat. There was Mac's
dinghy tied to the dock - a gray inflat-
able distinguished by two painted yel-
low stripes on each dj�eit~tP Mac's
maroon crocs casually t. -' ,d nmut tih
boat, and in plain view. It was as if Mac
would be returning any moment, but
he will not be coming back, and to
those of us who loved him, there is
nobody who can ever fill his shoes.

Medicare reform
- A quote by Abraham Lincoln: "If
we could first know where we are ... we
could then better judge whatto do and
how to do it."
If all the time and effort used by
Washington politicians and the White
House Administration to push through
the current bill to overhaul Medicare
and Medicaid had been used to clean
up the fraud and theft in Medicare and
Medicaid, we probably wouldn't need
Obama's major overhaul that is being
crammed down our throats. How much
will his overhaul cost ... $100 gazillion
dollars? How much is the estimate of
fraud and theft within our current
Medicare and Medicaid system ... $100
gazillion dollars? Duh.
Is there a Medicare/Medicaid fraud

problem? Is there anyone is
Washington focusing on this? Is there
anyone anywhere focusing on this?
Why don't we put our politics and all
the party bull aside and demand the
cleanup of the current system and then
see what kind of overhaul we really
need? The health and care of We the
People shouldn't be split down party
lines and the outcome of the "reform"
should not be in the hands of
Democrats or Republicans. It should
be in the hands of We the People.

Drivingus crazy
The "Driving in Nassau County"
letter of Nov. 13 brought up some inter-


testing points. One that stood out was
the writer spoke of slow drivers that are
not to use the left lane - slow to many
is the speed limit, be it 35 or 55 mph.
I for one have seen many driverspn the
stretch from the A1A bridge out to
Yulee tailgate those of us who do the
speed limit of 45-55 using the left lane
- those that think they own the roads
, ride my bumper and then act as if I
am wrong and should speed up to
accommodate them in breaking the
law.
The road rage factor sets in on them
and they use all sorts of gestures and
loud voices to show how upset they
are with us that obey the speed limits.
They do not understand that the 55
limit is for the left lane not the 70 to 80
some seem to be going. If you want to


speed then also why not break anoth-
er law and pass on the right? I for one
will not join you in breaking the speed
limit in the left lane.
To those that want to-break the
laws, do it at your pace, do not act as if
we should also join you in speeding;
your wrongs do not transfer to us that
obey, and by curbing your rage you
just may live a little longer with less
stress.
I do know that the sheriff has
beefed up as much as he can the
patrols in this area and with all his
other important issue in our county
he can only do so much as to traffic
idiots as these that think they own the
roads.

mob rule' in Old Town


The day they bought it several Old
Town residents came to my fiance's
home and started yelling and
protesting. I was not even aware that
they had bought anything. I
inquired with my parents about it
and they confirmed the purchase. I
told my parents about the reaction
and they said they would put it up
for sale and made it available to
these concerned Old Town resi-
dents. Five years passed and no one
bought it.
Several grandchildren were born
here on Amelia Island in the passing
five years; one was laid to rest at
Bosque Bello. My parents' health
was not getting any better and they
decided to build a home to suit their
needs. They wanted a living room, a
bedroom, a bath, a kitchen and
porches, 1,200 square feet on the
ground floor. Not a McMansion as
described by Louis Goldman at the
Historic District Council meeting,
but all that is necessary for an old
couple to continue living independ-
ently.
The signers of the petition were
also concerned with the fact that my
mother wanted to park as close as
she could to the front door. No one
would have a problem vith ADA
parking outside the front door of a
business? But the petitioners found
many problems with accommodat-


ing someone's needs in front of their
own home. '
As the HDC meeting went on,
Professor Michael Harrison was
very eloquent with his British
accent. He told the board that this
home would be a blight on the city
for 100 years or more! I could only
think, what about property rights? A
man's home is his castle - an
expression that illustrates the princi-
ple of individual privacy, which is
fundamental to the American system
of government.
I was compelled to speak at the
HDC because I feared my parents'
rights were going to be trampled on.
When I spoke I was interrupted by
Mrs. Harrison and she was found to
be out of order. After several inter-
ruptions the meeting lasted three
hours. We were there to discuss
whether or not we would have mul-
lions in the windows. The petitioners
saw it as a chance to derail my par-
ents right to build a single-family
home on a residential lot. I decided
to study the subject of property
rights.
In 1765, the "Quartering Act" was
forced upon the American colonies.
It was rewritten and signed by King
George III in 1774; it was one of five
acts that became known as the
"Intolerable Acts." The British had
set about to deny the colonialists


their property rights. They were
forced to quarter British soldiers.
The colonialists feared that this
imposition would eventually lead to
the loss of privacy in their private
homes.
After the Revolution, when writ-
ing the U.S. Constitution, the found-
ing fathers felt the need to add the
Fifth Amendment, which protected
us from mob rule. It protected our
rights to private property. This was
not by chance but by experience. A
man's home is his castle.
When you study what the city
did, they followed the rules. They
were professional and fair. They fol-
lowed the Constitution. They fol-
lowed the Florida state statutes.
They followed the Old Town guide-
lines. The Constitution trumps the
state, the state trumps the city, in
that order.
"177.021 Legal status of recorded
plats. - The recording of any plats
made in compliance with the provi-
sions of this part shall serve to
establish the identity of all lands
shown on and being a part of such
plats, and lands may thenceforth be
conveyed by reference to such plat."
There were no violations! Only a
professional interpretation of state
statutes. We are fortunate to live in a
land of laws and not in a land of mob
rule.

Amelia Island Co. files for Chapter 11


MICHAEL PARNELL
News Leader
Amelia Island Plantation continues
to function normally for now while
awaiting a bankruptcy judge's deci-
sion about its future management and
operations.
Amelia Island Co. filed for reor-
ganization Friday under Chapter 11
of U.S. bankruptcy law, which allows
operations to continue while a court-
approved reorganization is sought.
The company told employees there
would be I..r. ..-- as usual" during
the months-long process.
The company also announced
Friday it has signed an agreement
with a new investor group, Red Maple
Investors, LLC, to provide both short-
and long-term financing. Funds are


needed immediately
for the company to
meet payroll and
other continuing
obligations.
The investors, all
residents of the
island, would pro-
vide "immediate
Healan interim financing
and long-term finan-
cial planning and
expertise while assuring the uninter-
rupted operation of the resort," accord-
ing to a company press release. The
investors have committed more than
$20 million for future operations.
But that assumes the court recog-
nizes the bankruptcy plan put forth
by company attorneys in U.S. Middle
District Court. Prudential Financial


Services Inc. has a $29 million claim
on Plantation property, the largest,
and was expected to ask that the com-
pany be forced to Chapter 7 bank-
ruptcy, which is liquidation of its
assets.
That might benefit Prudential, but
not other creditors. The judge is
expected to rule later this week on
that initial request. Typically, judges do
not force a company into Chapter 7
this early in the process, and there
was optimism that would be the case
this time.
"This is good news, great news,"
Amelia Island Co. President Jack
Healan said Friday after the court fil-
ing. He said he was pleased that 22
investors, "people that feel that strong-
ly" about the Plantation, formed Red
Maple with the intent of preserving the

resort.
He said he expected the bank-
ruptcy process to be completed with-
in 90-120 days, and for it to result in a
restructuring of debts, including
Prudential's mortgage.
Healan lauded the local investors -
"such an affection from people that
live here for this place" - for their will-
ingness to play the lead role in the


restructuring. RMI is a group of high
net-worth Amelia Island Plantation
homeowners formed and led by 19-
year resident Robert C. Smith.

State 'fraud' may have cost county cash


RYAN SMITH
News Leader


A state investment fund that
crashed in 2007 - and in which Nassau
County had about $7.8 million invest-
ed - is currently under investigation
for fraud by the federal Securities and
Exchange Commission. However,
most of the county's money is now
out of the fund and invested safely,
according to Clerk of Court John
Crawford.
The State Board of Administration
(SBA) handled funds for hundreds of
local governments in Florida, which
pooled their money to attain larger
investment returns. But those were
threatened when the fund melted
down in 2007. The SEC is now inves-
tigating whether the state of Florida
and three Wall Street firms - JP
Morgan Chase, Credit Suisse and
Lehman Brothers, which collapsed
last year - misled investors about the
risk of the SBA's investments.
Nassau County had about $7.8 mil-
lion in the fund when it faltered. The
SBA lacked liquidity to pay out at once
all the money it owed local govern-
ments and froze 14 percent of it in a so-
called Fund B for distressed assets.
The money frozen in that fund,
Crawford said, could be stuck there for
up to nine years. The remaining 86
percent, in Fund A, was initially avail-
able if governments paid a 2 percent
fee to withdraw it. As Fund A became
stronger, the fee was discontinued.
Crawford said while some of the
county's money remains in Fund B,


It's a horrible violation of the trust of .-

he added. "... Knowing that, because
the state wrote the law, they should
have made sure that the investors
understood the law - get our principal
returned to us. And they failed in that
regard."
Even if the SBA is cleared of the
fraud allegations, Crawford said
Nassau County won't be putting
money in the fund again.
"We're out, and we have absolute-
ly no plans for reinvesting with the
state of Florida," he said.
County Commissioner Mike Boyle
said he was glad Nassau County was
getting out of the beleaguered fund.
"I'm surprised to hear this latest
development, but I've always been
skeptical of the SBA, and have raised
this issue many times in the past two
years," he said.
The county's current investment
plan, Crawford said, guarantees the
safety of taxpayer money.
"We invest in something called
(certificate of deposit account reg-
istries), where you go through a sin-
gle portal, a bank," he said. "A bank
can insure your deposit up to $250,000.
Now we have more than $250,000; we
have closer to the neighborhood of
$100 million. The CDARS program
divides your money up into $250,000
deposits and spreads it across many,
many FDIC-insured banks, so every
penny is insured."

Fire




chief




opts to




resign

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County Fire Chief Chuck
Cooper resigned under duress Friday
after months of clashes with the fire-
fighters' union and an ongoing inves-
tigation into his professional conduct.
Cooper, who had served as chief
since 2004, accepted a severance pack-
age worth about $53,000, according
to County Coordinator Ed Sealover.
The severance in-
cludes two months'
salary, three
months' payment of
health insurance
benefits and about
$40,000 in unused
leave.
Monday was
Cooper's last day on Cooper
the job, Sealover
said. Assistant Chief
Sam Young was named interim fire
chief, a position Sealover said Young
would hold for at least the next six
months.
Sealover said the internal tumult
in the fire department over the last
few months had raised concerns in
the county commission. Cooper
blamed his dismissal on "politics."
"I think that there had been some
difficulties over the last several
months," Sealover said Monday. He
pointed out Cooper's handling of a
grievance filed by Lt. Curtis Bollinger,
a firefighter accused, and later exon-
erated, of teaching a class without
proper qualifications. In August, the
commission sharply criticized Cooper's
handling of the case and directed him
to issue a formal apology to Bollinger.
"You also had the issues that were
raised by the union relative to the
chief's management of the department
and how two fires were managed
specifically," Sealover added, referring
to the ongoing investigation. "Then
you also had those issues related to the
report itself."
The investigation was opened in
July after a letter to Sealover from
Nassau County Fire Rescue
Professionals Local 3101 President
Matthew Waggoner. In it Waggoner
alleged Cooper's actions at two struc-
ture fires caused concern for fire-
fighters' safety. He also charged
Cooper with "a consistent pattern of
abusive language used toward subor-
dinate employees."
Cooper denied the accusations, but
was rebuked last month after he inject-
ed himself into the investigation by
calling Florida State Fire College Safety
Programs Manager Charlie Brush,
who was looking into the alleged safe-

RESORT Continued from 1A
into the future," said Smith in
the company press release. He
could not be reached for com-
ment Tuesday.
One of the RMI investors is
John A. Griswold, president of
Harbor Hotel Investors, LLC.
Griswold has more than
30 years' experience in the
ownership, operation and
management of hotels and
resorts.
There will be no "interrup-
tion" in Plantation manage-
ment, employees were told,
though changes are coming.
Longtime Amelia Island Co.
vice presidents Norman Bray,
who is retiring, and Richard
Goldman, who has resigned,
will be leaving before year's
end.
Goldman will become
director of the Convention and
Visitors Bureau in St.
Augustine. He said his move
was "not connected" to the
bankruptcy filing but was a
"pop-up opportunity" that had
arisen unexpectedly.
Healan will continue in his
position through the bank-
ruptcy process, if not longer.
"(If) we have new owners -
they have the right to make a
change later," he said. He said
he would move to fill the man-
agement positions being vacat-
ed.
Employees were told in an
e-mail Friday there would be
"adequate financing to sustain
operations at current levels,
including maintaining facilities
and amenities like golf cours-
es, tennis courts, restaurants,
spa and shops."
Chapter 11 protection "will
affect how much vendors
and other creditors are paid
on past invoices and debt. ...
Those vendors who continue
to do business with the
Plantation will be paid on a cur-
rent basis," the company
wrote.
The Plantation has numer-
ous local vendors, from fish-
mongers to carpet-cleaners,
that might lose out on payment
for services already rendered.
(The News-Leader is one of
the vendors that might not be
paid a relatively modest
amount for advertising serv-


ices.)
The company payroll has
dropped by more than 200
employees from its peak of
1,100, and remaining employ-
ees have had their pay cut 40
percent after mandatory fur-
loughs. Among those cut were
the top golf course manager,
executive chef and other
administrative positions.
Property owners were
reported to be apprehensive
as they attended small coffees
at which representatives of the
company and new investors
group offered reassurance.
Hundreds attended the month-
ly meeting of the Amelia Island
Club on Monday.
"We don't really know
where all this is headed," said
Al Watson, president of the
club's board, after the meet-
ing. "Our position is to look at
this as a positive move by the
company.
"We welcome the decisive
step they've taken. We're opti-
mistic."
Amelia Island Co. owns all
of the resort and recreational
facilities and amenities on
Amelia Island Plantation,
including the Amelia Island
Club. The club has about 1,400
members who pay initial
deposits and monthly dues for
use of the Ocean Club, fitness
center, golf and tennis facili-
ties and other social facilities,
depending on their level of
membership.
Club members were not
listed as creditors in the fil-
ing, which means their initial
deposits, which can be as
much as $75,000, are still
refundable. The club might
take ownership of its facilities
and be established as a sepa-
rate entity as part of the pro-
ceedings.
The Amelia Island Planta-
tion Community Association
is the homeowners' associa-
tion under Florida law that
owns, manages and maintains
roads, common areas and pro-
vides for security, landscaping,
drainage and the like. The
association is funded by resi-
dential and commercial prop-
erty owner assessments and
the company.
Bob Hanks, association
president, said it "is continuing


with business as usual" though
some expenses have been
deferred. The company has
not paid about $175,000
owed to the community asso-
ciation, according to the court
filing.
Hanks said the association
has been "well managed and
operates conservatively" and
is deferring nonessential
expenses, such as road paving,
while keeping essential serv-
ices such as security and land-
scaping at normal levels.
The association is acting on
the assumption that "this is
temporary, that we will all get
through" by the end of 2010,
Hanks said.
The Plantation has been
bankrupt before. Richard L.
Cooper, an Ohio businessman
who died last year at 82, pur-
chased the property from the
Sea Pines Co., in 1978. Sea
Pines Co., which developed
Hilton Head Island, S.C., orig-
inally bought 3,000 acres on
the south end of Amelia Island
that was proposed for a strip
mine, but ultimately ran into
financial difficulties in rede-
veloping it.
Healan was an accountant
with Sea Pines Co., and he and
Bray, also with Sea Pines, have
been part of Plantation man-
agement for more than three
decades. The company is now
owned by the Cooper family
trust.
A proposed merger with
Redquartz Developments
Atlanta, a real estate invest-
ment company affiliated with
Redquartz Developments, Ltd.,
of Dublin, Ireland, fell apart
earlier this year. That company
signed a memorandum of
understanding in January that
could have led to $60 million in
investment at the Plantation,
but the deal was not consum-
mated.

Most Nassau students not


vaccinated for swine flu


RYAN SMITH
News Leader

The Nassau County Health
Department is offering vacci-
nations against H IN 1 swine flu
in county schools. However, the
majority of students have not
been vaccinated through the
program.
The vaccination program is
ongoing, said Environmental
Health Director Wade Spark-
man. "We went into the K-5 age
group in the schools, and we've
administered approximately
1,900 doses in the school sys-
tem. That's countywide," he
said. "We project around the
first week of December, depend-
ing on the shipment of the vac-
cine, we will go into the high
schools and the middle schools,
and we'll be administering
approximately 1,200 doses
then."

Although Brush has not
issued a final report, Sealover
said it appears Cooper will be
cleared of the alleged safety vio-
lations.
"In the verbal calls I've had
with Mr. Brush, he said in nei-
ther case were the lives of the
firefighters involved in those
fires put in jeopardy," he said.
However, Sealover said the
union's allegations of unpro-
fessional conduct had raised
concern.

receive the vaccination,
Sparkman said. Thus far, the
health department has received
consent to vaccinate less than a
third of the county's 11,070 stu-
dents.
"We have, countywide, 3,107
parental consents total," he said.
"It's around 30 percent, 31 per-
cent (of the total student popu-
lation), approximately."
The Health Department has
so far provided 269 doses of vac-

School, 313 for Callahan Inter-
mediate, 96 for Bryceville Ele-
mentary, 254 for Yulee Primary,
310 for Yulee Elementary, 300


I think it was a combination of
factors," he said. "... There was
some concern about his man-
agement style on the part of the
board, and there was also some
concern about what was the
relationship between manage-
ment and labor, and its impli-
cations for the future.
"It's a situation where there
was, particularly on the side of
the county commissioners, a
lack of confidence and a desire
to go in another direction."
Cooper, for his part, blamed
political machinations within
the firefighters union for both
the investigation and his resig-


for Hilliard Elementary, 160 for
Southside Elementary and 230
for Emma Love Hardee
Elementary. Some of those
doses were unused due to stu-
dent absences, Sparkman said.
Sparkman stressed that it's
hard come up with a definitive
total of students vaccinated,
since some receive the vaccine
elsewhere.
"We see children in the clin-
ics, too - especially home-
schooled and private schooled,"
he said. "We offer the vaccines
to private schools too. We've
contacted them and are working
with them. And we have, of
course, private providers who've
received the vaccine too, and
they're administering it from
their offices."
Swine flu has killed 160 peo-
ple in Florida, according to the
state health department. There
have been no confirmed deaths
from the illness in Nassau
County.

'They offered me a chance
to resign or a chance to be ter-

after," he said. "I was naYve - I
believed that the simple truth
would suffice. I had no idea pol-
itics would play so heavily into
it."
Still, Cooper said, he has
high regard for the firefighters
he's worked with.
"The people of Nassau
County are protected by some
super folks," he said. "The men

Car guy loves his job

HEATHER A. PERRY ,' .

Matt Dawkins wears
many hats at Amelia Auto
Mart. For the past three
years, his days have been
busy doing "whatever it
takes" to keep the automo-
bile dealership running
smoothly.
"I have never sold cars
before working for Amelia
Auto Mart," said Dawkins. "I
have been in the repair side
of automotive since high
school."
Dawkins says the best
part of his job is working
with the public.
"This area is filled with
awesome people. I love what
I do. It's a great feeling when
you are out to eat with your
family and you see a cus-
tomer that you sold a vehicle
to months prior and they tell
you how much they love
their ride."
Owner Lane Mashburn
receives high praise from
Dawkins.
"It's nice to find someone
to work for who really cares
about his employees. I learn
new things from Lane every
day."
Mashburn reflects his
employee's praise by offer-
ing some of his own.
"Matt is very detail-orient-
ed and has a great attitude.
He's basically my right-hand
man, and I know that when
I'm out, he's taking care of

This is truly one of those bad
news/good news dichotomies.
The bad news is that prop-
erty values in Nassau County
have declined - precipitously in
some cases. This includes both
residential and commercial
properties.
The good news is that your
property taxes should have also
declined - in most cases. If your
property is worth less - or like-
ly a lot less - it is logical that the
assessed value used for taxing
purposes would be lower. (The
assessed value is set by the
property appraiser; it is multi-
plied by the tax rate to deter-
mine your property taxes.)
But not so fast. The proper-
ty valuation formula is not a per-
fect science; subjectivity is
involved. Here in Nassau
County, most assessed valua-
tions have indeed fallen along
with actual property values.
This decline in the assessed
value is not always as severe as
in the market value, however.
As a property owner, your
recourse is to appeal your prop-
erty assessment - if you do not
agree with it, or think it is too
high. It only costs $15 to file.
And many owners are doing just
that - in record numbers.
Over the last three years,
the number of appeals has
increased from 100 to 212, and
for this year to 550 (contesting
the valuations of 1,600 parcels).
The reasons may be varied.
There is no denying that
appeals have increased dra-
matically - by 100 to 150 per-

In addi-
tion, property owners are more
inclined to challenge their
assessed values during the
worst real estate market in 30
years. When values are going
up, property owners are proba-
bly more accepting of higher
assessments - and the higher
taxes.
According to the property
appraiser, assessed values have
indeed dropped over the past
year. About half of the 40,000
residential properties received
lower assessments this year; for
commercial properties, some
1,300 of 1,500 properties were
assessed lower.
The property appraiser did
not indicate how much the
assessments were reduced.
Regardless, that means the
assessed values of several hun-
dred commercial properties
were either maintained or
increased. In this market, you
wonder how this could happen.
For residential properties,
many are homesteaded, which
means they are protected by a
limit on their assessments.
Apparently, homesteaded prop-
erties faced a slight increase in
assessed values this year


ty values

because of required changes in
a state amendment.
Also, the assessments for
this year are based upon sales
from last year. But again, the
activity for last year was
abysmal by normal standards,
as market values of residential
and commercial properties
plummeted.
The property appraiser is
obligated to reduce valuations
commensurate with the current
market conditions. Many resi-
dents with second homes or
investment properties, and busi-
ness owners, feel this is not
being done timely and accu-
rately.
If market values decline 40
percent, the assessed values
should also. The property
appraiser contends that
assessed values are already 15
percent below market values;
so if market values decline by 40
percent, the assessed value will
only fall 25 percent (reflecting
the 15 percent already factored
into the equation).
This does not seem equi-
table. In current market and
economic conditions, residents
and business owners deserve
a break on property taxes. Local
government agencies should
reduce their tax rates (as the
county commission has done),
and the assessed values should
reflect the miserable market
conditions.
The bad news is, well, bad
enough as far as property val-
ues. Let's not make matters
worse with unwarranted taxa-
tion.

Drakes have three children. Their oldest son,
Sgt. Brenton Kirk Drake, is now serving the
U.S. Marines at the U.S. Embassy in Bamako,
Mali, West Africa.
New role for Sopp
Fernandina Beach criminal defense attor-
ney Teri Sopp has a new role: Los Angeles
Police Department Senior Fingerprint Analyst.
Sopp is a named character in Michael
Connelly's newest novel, 9 Dragons.
In 9 Dragons, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch
investigates a murder in south Los Angeles,
which leads him to a wild ride of an adventure
in Hong Kong and to an astonishing conclusion
in the City of Angels. As an LAPD fingerprint
specialist, Sopp's character experiments with a
new, high-tech procedure to obtain a finger-
print from a fired bullet, and leads Bosch to the
murder weapon.
Sopp met Connelly at a fundraiser for the
Orlando Literacy League last April, and submit-
ted a silent auction bid for the right to be a

Filkoff is first candidate


for city commission seat


Arlene Filkoff has
announced her intention to file
for candidacy for the Group 1
seat on the Fernandina Beach
City Commission.
That seat is currently held
by Ken Walker, whose three-
term expires in May. Walker,
who is completing his second
three-year term, may not seek
reelection because of term lim-
its.
"Fernandina Beach has felt
like home to me since I first
crossed the bridge in 1996,"
Filkoff said in a press
announcement. "My husband
Steve and I were so lucky to be
able to join this community
full of wonderful people who
truly care about their city. We
all want our city to be the best
it can be. I am confident that
our best days are ahead of us,
and I am willing to work hard
to make progress in meeting
our community's goals."
Filkoff was reared in Pass
Christian, Miss., and received
her BA from the University of
Alabama in Tuscaloosa. She
spent 27 years heading sys-
tems organizations for
Fortune 500 companies in
Hartford, Conn. There she
earned accolades for helping
companies significantly
improve customer satisfaction
levels.
She said she believes that
her extensive experience in
improving the quality of
processes within large private


business
organiza-
tions can
serve her
well in local
government.
"We need to
make sure
Filkoff that our gov-
ernment is
both effi-
cient and effective and that we
are taking the city in the right
direction," Filkoff said. "That
means understanding where
the people of Fernandina want
it to go. Making sure we have
the right information to
make the right decisions is
critical to our future. We need
to ask the right questions and
get things done in the most
cost conscious way without
sacrificing service to our citi-
zens."
As a community volunteer,
Filkoff has worked with many
local non-profit organizations
to assist them in their strategic
planning process. She has
served on several boards,
including Joy to the Children,
Fernandina Little Theatre and
Friends of the Library. She has
held leadership positions in
organizations devoted to chil-
dren and education. Filkoff
serves on the Leadership
Council for Take Stock in
Children; she also mentors a
student in that program.
She continues to serve on
the city's Parks and Recreation


Committee, where she worked
to help bring about more
recreational opportunities for
local youth, such as the new
Atlantic Avenue Teen Center
and the upcoming Freedom
Playground. Through her
recent service on the
Fernandina Beach Arts
Council she worked to
improve local access to cul-
tural activities. She has first-
hand experience on the local
cultural scene as a performer
as well. She earned praise for
her Amelia Community
Theatre stage debut in their
recent production, 6 Dance
Lessons in 6 Weeks.
"During my campaign I
look forward to talking with
people and listening to their
ideas and concerns about our
city's direction and goals,"
Filkoff said. "I encourage peo-
ple to call or e-mail me. If I
can chat with them even in the
supermarket or on the beach,
I will welcome the opportuni-
ty."
To contact Filkoff and find
out more about her campaign,
call 583-8629 or e-mail arlene-
filkoff@bellsouth.net
Filkoff is married to Steven
Filkoff, who shares her enthu-
siasm for civic involvement
through his service with the
Police and Coast Guard auxil-
iaries.
She is the first candidate
to announce for the city elec-
tion next year. Walker's is the
only seat that will be on the
ballot for the April election.
The other four seats - held by
Mayor Susan Steger and
Commissioners Jeffrey
Bunch, Eric Childers and Tim
Poynter - do not come open
until 2011 or 2012.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


A remarkable man
Our friend, Captain Bob "Mac"
MacGregor, was a remarkable man.
My husband and I sailed home to
Fernandina Beach in the summer of
2008, and we met Mac shortly there-
after. As fellow live-aboard sailors, my
husband and I became fast friends with
Mac because we immediately had
something in common. Mac had sailed
from Casco Bay, Maine to Fernandina
Beach in 2006. He was always helping
out his fellow sailors
any way he could.
Most of his adult
life, Mac had worked
as an arborist, and
his skill in climbing
trees professionally
translated magnifi-
cently to climbing
the masts on sail-
MacGregor boats. Typically,
"going up the mast"
is a task most sailors
prefer to avoid. Not Captain Mac! He
would scurry up the mast and feel right
at home as he easily worked on a tan-
gled halyard, changed anchor or
spreader lights, mounted antennas or
wind speed gauges or any type of mast
work that needed to be done.
Sometimes, you could be walking
down the dock, and you'd hear a pleas-
ant "Mahalo!" coming from out of the
sky! Looking up, there would be Mac
Sthe source of the traditional Hawaiian
blessing - perched like a seabird on a
1t..m. s mast! Mac was very handy
with engine repairs, also. He loved
motorcycles, and he was also very
adept at keeping a generator or dinghy
motor in good running order. But if
you wanted to see Mac's spirit really
shine, all you had to do was ask him
about his beloved daughter, Amanda.
He was so proud of her, and he told me
that she was his best friend.
Mac was quite a talented musician,
and he enjoyed "jamming" with friends
regularly. He told us that he liked every
kind of music, but especially enjoyed
playing blues or bluegrass. Mac's
favorite aspect of those jam sessions
was simply to enjoy sharing the fun


that goes along with playing music
with friends.
It was in that spirit of friendship
and respect that a gathering of many of
Mac's close personal Fernandina
Beach friends was held at the Green
Turtle Tavern in Mac's memory. It was
an honor to share our stories of our
friendship with Mac's father and step-
mother, Jim and Carmen MacGregor.
A memorial service was also held in
Wheaton, Ill. on Nov. 14, with another
memorial service to be held in
Wolfeboro Falls, N.H., on Nov. 21.
Mac died suddenly on Nov. 1, as
he prepared to go sailing with a friend.
He lived life on his own terms, and he
died in the prime of life ~ gone too
soon. Two days after his untimely pass-
ing, I was walking down the dinghy
dock at the marina where Mac was
keeping his sailboat. There was Mac's
dinghy tied to the dock - a gray inflat-
able distinguished by two painted yel-
low stripes on each side - with Mac's
maroon crocs casually tossed into the
boat, and in plain view. It was as if Mac
would be returning any moment, but
he will not be coming back, and to
those of us who loved him, there is
nobody who can ever fill his shoes.

Medicare reform
A quote by Abraham Lincoln: "If
we could first know where we are ... we
could then better judge what to do and
how to do it."
If all the time and effort used by
Washington politicians and the White
House Administration to push through
the current bill to overhaul Medicare
and Medicaid had been used to clean
up the fraud and theft in Medicare and
Medicaid, we probably wouldn't need
Obama's major overhaul that is being
crammed down our throats. How much
will his overhaul cost ... $100 gazillion
dollars? How much is the estimate of
fraud and theft within our current
Medicare and Medicaid system ... $100
gazillion dollars? Duh.
Is there a Medicare/Medicaid fraud
"czar" hard at work focusing on this


MIKE KEEFE/THE DENVER POST


problem? Is there anyone is
Washington focusing on this? Is there
anyone anywhere focusing on this?
Why don't we put our politics and all
the party bull aside and demand the
cleanup of the current system and then
see what kind of overhaul we really
need? The health and care of We the
People shouldn't be split down party
lines and the outcome of the "reform"
should not be in the hands of
Democrats or Republicans. It should
be in the hands of We the People.

Driving us crazy
The "Driving in Nassau County"
letter of Nov. 13 brought up some inter-


testing points. One that stood out was
the writer spoke of slow drivers that are
not to use the left lane - slow to many
is the speed limit, be it 35 or 55 mph.
I for one have seen many drivers on the
stretch from the A1A bridge out to
Yulee tailgate those of us who do the
speed limit of 45-55 using the left lane
- those that think they own the roads
ride my bumper and then act as if I
am wrong and should speed up to
accommodate them in breaking the
law.
The road rage factor sets in on them
and they use all sorts of gestures and
loud voices to show how upset they
are with us that obey the speed limits.
They do not understand that the 55
limit is for the left lane not the 70 to 80
some seem to be going. If you want to


speed then also why not break anoth-
er law and pass on the right? I for one
will not join you in breaking the speed
limit in the left lane.
To those that want to break the
laws, do it at your pace, do not act as if
we should also join you in speeding;
your wrongs do not transfer to us that
obey, and by curbing your rage you
just may live a little longer with less
stress.
I do know that the sheriff has
beefed up as much as he can the
patrols in this area and with all his
other important issue in our county
he can only do so much as to traffic
idiots as these that think they own the
roads.

mob rule' in Old Town


The day they bought it several Old
Town residents came to my fiance's
home and started yelling and
protesting. I was not even aware that
they had bought anything. I
inquired with my parents about it
and they confirmed the purchase. I
told my parents about the reaction
and they said they would put it up
for sale and made it available to
these concerned Old Town resi-
dents. Five years passed and no one
bought it.
Several grandchildren were born
here on Amelia Island in the passing
five years; one was laid to rest at
Bosque Bello. My parents' health
was not getting any better and they
decided to build a home to suit their
needs. They wanted a living room, a
bedroom, a bath, a kitchen and
porches, 1,200 square feet on the
ground floor. Not a McMansion as
described by Louis Goldman at the
Historic District Council meeting,
but all that is necessary for an old
couple to continue living independ-
ently.
The signers of the petition were
also concerned with the fact that my
mother wanted to park as close as
she could to the front door. No one
would have a problem with ADA
parking outside the front door of a
business? But the petitioners found
many problems with accommodat-


ing someone's needs in front of their
own home.
As the HDC meeting went on,
Professor Michael Harrison was
very eloquent with his British
accent. He told the board that this
home would be a blight on the city
for 100 years or more! I could only
think, what about property rights? A
man's home is his castle - an
expression that illustrates the princi-
ple of individual privacy, which is
fundamental to the American system
of government.
I was compelled to speak at the
HDC because I feared my parents'
rights were going to be trampled on.
When I spoke I was interrupted by
Mrs. Harrison and she was found to
be out of order. After several inter-
ruptions the meeting lasted three
hours. We were there to discuss
whether or not we would have mul-
lions in the windows. The petitioners
saw it as a chance to derail my par-
ents right to build a single-family
home on a residential lot. I decided
to study the subject of property
rights.
In 1765, the "Quartering Act" was
forced upon the American colonies.
It was rewritten and signed by King
George III in 1774; it was one of five
acts that became known as the
"Intolerable Acts." The British had
set about to deny the colonialists


their property rights. They were
forced to quarter British soldiers.
The colonialists feared that this
imposition would eventually lead to
the loss of privacy in their private
homes.
After the Revolution, when writ-
ing the U.S. Constitution, the found-
ing fathers felt the need to add the
Fifth Amendment, which protected
us from mob rule. It protected our
rights to private property. This was
not by chance but by experience. A
man's home is his castle.
When you study what the city
did, they followed the rules. They
were professional and fair. They fol-
lowed the Constitution. They fol-
lowed the Florida state statutes.
They followed the Old Town guide-
lines. The Constitution trumps the
state, the state trumps the city, in
that order.
"177.021 Legal status of recorded
plats. - The recording of any plats
made in compliance with the provi-
sions of this part shall serve to
establish the identity of all lands
shown on and being a part of such
plats, and lands may thenceforth be
conveyed by reference to such plat."
There were no violations! Only a
professional interpretation of state
statutes. We are fortunate to live in a
land of laws and not in a land of mob
rule.

Getting the lowdown in the Caucasus


A scary bridge across a river may deter you, but not our
intrepid correspondent in the Republic of Georgia.


One of my tasks here
in the former Soviet
Union country of
Georgia is to visit
representative protected
areas to get a first-hand look
at the country's biodiversity
and then to write up a report
for the U.S. Agency for
International Development. A
plum assignment, one would
think.
Well, let
me tell you,
even plums
have pits. In
an unexpect-
ed bit of cir-
cumstances,
I nearly fell
into one. It
WILD all started
WAYS when I was
hiking with
my col-
Pat league
Foster-Turley Ramaz along
a rocky path
in a virgin old growth beech
forest, heading to a waterfall.
Suddenly our peaceful silence
was broken by a sound, "flop,
slap, flap," coming from my
feet. My hiking boots were
disintegrating - the entire
bottom of one was falling off.
Apparently Nike hiking boots
do not use permanent glue.
In mere minutes I was
holding my sole in one hand,
and hobbling along in one
boot and one half of a boot.
Then the other boot gave way
too. Now I was wearing just
the uppers of boots, carrying
the bottoms, and limping

along the rocky trail, heading
back to the tourist lodge in
hilarious disgrace.
So the next day, with some
of Lagodekhi Protected Area
still to explore, and bootless, I
came up with a plan. How
about riding a horse? Let the
horse handle the rocky trail,
and then my backup city
walking shoes will not be a
problem. Right.
I found myself on a small
horse with a tiny pommel-less
saddle attached to the horse
only by a thin band under the
girth and an even thinner
band under the tail. Forget
getting up on top of this horse
with grace. It took both
Ramaz and the guide to
shove me on top, and push
the saddle and me upright on
the horse's back and off I
went.
Inexplicably, I was the only
one with a horse. Ramaz
stayed behind to work on the
report, and I was accompa-
nied by a guide who spoke no
English, walking behind me
and the horse, and occasional-
ly calling out "Whoosh,"
which I guess in Georgian
horse talk meant "Giddy-up,"
especially when accompanied
by a slap with a branch.
Bizarre, but hey, this is anoth-
er country, so go with the
flow.
After about an hour on the
horse on a flat trail through
the woods - one I easily could
have walked even with my
city shoes - we stopped and
in Georgian/English pan-
tomime I was told to dis-
mount. The guide tied up the
horse to a tree. Great, maybe
we're having a picnic or some-
thing up on this plateau.
Wonderful view, soft mossy
ground, I can do this!
But no. While the horse
happily grazed on his long
tether, the guide set off on

river from the Republic of Georgia to the neighboring
country of Azerbaijan.


foot down the merest of goat
trails straight down a steep
gorge and I was forced to fol-
low in my city shoes, slipping,
sliding half down the moun-
tain. Down the gorge we
went, to the bottom I thought,
to look at the river. Another
waterfall, ah, that would be
nice!
But no. We got to the river,
and there was the rickety-est
of narrow logs breaching the
rapids below. Great. There's
nothing like a log high across
a river to remind me of my
fear of heights and my lack of
balance. But I made it across.
Where was that waterfall? I
was ready for a break.
But no. In front of us now
was the steepest of slopes
with the tiniest of goat trails
heading upwards. Even with
stops every minute or so to

rest, soon the fatigued mus-
cles in my legs turned to quiv-
ering mush and my legs gave
way. The panicked guide lift-
ed me upright and held my
hand and had to half drag me
up the mountain. What fun.
Finally at the top of the
second steep gorge pass, we
found what we apparently
were seeking - a ruined fort
from the Middle Ages, pro-
tecting the valley. I almost
could have cared less. After a
bit of a rest, though, I started
wandering around, finding
mushrooms, looking for crit-
ters, and trying to forget that
I now had to go down the goat
trail, cross that log, and climb
up the other bank once more.
Oh yeah, I still had to mount
that damn horse again too
with no big sturdy Ramaz to
help the small guide.
I survived to tell the tale,
but barely, I'm convinced.
And this was only the first of a
series of field trips! I can't
wait to see what happens
next!

WEDNESDAY, November 18,2009 NEWS News-Leader


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 - which allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.
Gunpoint abduction
A Fernandina Beach man
was allegedly forced at gunpoint
to drive three suspects to Duval
County just after 1 a.m. Friday
and ordered to hand over funds
from his bank account.
According to a Nassau
County Sheriff's Office report,
the ordeal lasted more than 24
hours, beginning early Friday
morning when a male suspect
asked the man for a ride on
South Eighth Street. As the man
entered the vehicle, two more
male suspects forced entry, one
holding the driver at gunpoint
while demanding he take them
to Jacksonville.
According to the report, the
men made the victim drive to an
unknown hotel off of Golfair
Boulevard in Jacksonville, then
reserved a room with his ATM
card. The victim said the sus-
pects waited until about 9 a.m.
Nov. 14, then took him to the
VyStar Credit Union on Atlantic
Boulevard and got money out of
his account, the report stated.
The victim said the men then


n 7 = *I,


drove him to the Arlington area
of Jacksonville, where one of
them fled on foot, the report
stated. The remaining two drove
him back to an unknown street
in Fernandina Beach, parked in
a wooded area, then took off on
foot, the report stated.
According to the report, the
case was forwarded to a detec-
tive in the criminal investiga-
tions division of the sheriff's
office, but no arrests have been
made.
No further description of the
suspects was listed in the
report, but they made off with
approximately $500 in cash, a
cell phone estimated at $75 and
the victim's debit card, the
report stated. The victim was
not injured.
Truck crash
A 17-year-old was arrested
in the early morning hours of
Nov. 10 after a truck he alleged-
ly stole from his brother crash-
ed into two sections of chain
link fence at a Yulee residence.
The boy was westbound on
Pages Dairy Road, the report
stated, when he passed out and
the truck left the roadway, strik-
ing one section of the victim's
chain link fence, then skidding
across the yard and hitting the
fence a second time.
According to the report, the
truck then crossed Ezell Lane,
eventually coming to rest after
the truck hit an electrical box.
The victim heard a loud
noise outside his residence and
found the boy climbing into the

back of the vehicle, the report
stated. When the deputy arrived
on the scene, he found the boy
"laying in the back of the vehi-
cle appearing to be dazed and
confused," the report stated.
Police said he had been huff-
ing a cleaning product.
In addition to an unspecified
amount of damage to the truck,
there was an estimated $5,000
damage to the fence, the report
stated.
According to the report, the
boy faces possible charges of
vehicular grand theft with dam-
age to property, DUI with prop-
erty damage, and committing
a nonmoving traffic violation
while driving on a suspended
license.
Battery arrest
A Hilliard man allegedly
pushed his pregnant girlfriend
down the stairs, then slashed a
tire on her car with a chainsaw
Nov. 8 after the couple had been
drinking.
William Edward Turner, 43,
of 32252 CR 121 in Hilliard, was
charged with aggravated dom-
estic battery after authorities
responded to the report of dom-
estic violence just before 11 p.m.
According to Turner's arrest
report, the victim said the two
were having a verbal argument
on the front porch that turned
physical when Turner pushed
her, causing her to fall down the
stairs. The fall caused minor
injuries to her left leg and right
hand, the report stated.
Turner is the father of the


unborn child and had prior
knowledge of the pregnancy
before the alleged battery, the
report stated.
According to the report, the
victim said Turner also cut the
rear driver side tire of her car
with a chainsaw so she couldn't
leave.

Suspect in killings


seeks new lawyer


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader

A Nassau County Judge pre-
siding over a motion hearing
Nov. 5 recommended a mental
health evaluation for Gregory
David Larkin, who is accused
of murdering his parents in
April.
The motion hearing was
scheduled after Larkin, 35, sent
a handwritten letter from the
Nassau County Jail to Judge
Robert Foster requesting that
Public Defender Brian
Morrissey be discharged as his
legal counsel. Larkin request-
ed a new public defender in the
letter, but listed no grievances,
saying only "I have been mis-
represented."
Foster denied the motion
and additionally recommended
a mental health evaluation.
Assistant State Attorney
Wesley White, director of the
Nassau County State Attorney's
Office, said the evaluation was
likely to take place and, if so,
would be conducted by an inde-
pendent expert.
Larkin's parents, Dick and
Myra Larkin, were found beaten
to death in their Caprice Lane
home. Police said the couple
had been dead for days when
they were discovered during a
well-being check.
Police said Larkin had been
living at the Amelia Island home
since January, and that DNA


evidence
found on
bloody clothes
in the bath-
room ties him
to the mur-
ders.
Larkin was
Larkin arrested at a
motel near the
Jacksonville
airport April 18 on charges of
grand theft of a motor vehicle
and having no valid driver's
license, having just returned
from a trip to Mexico for a job
interview. He was driving his
parents' only vehicle, which he
said they let him borrow. On
April 30, he was charged with
their murders.
Dick Larkin, 75, and Myra
Larkin, 73, had been married
51 years. Gregory Larkin is the
youngest of their children, and
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves has said detectives
found no indication he has any
history of violent crime. He had
been operating Aquamor, a fam-
ily-owned diving and kayaking
shop in Costa Rica, a business
his parents reportedly pur-
chased for their children about
15 years ago, but was consider-
ing selling it due to the eco-
nomic downturn, police said.
Larkin will return to court
Thursday for another pre-trial
hearing. Doug Dorsey is pros-
ecuting the case.

Mother gets probation for child neglect


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader

A Fernandina Beach
woman arrested when author-
ities, in the act of breaking up
an open house party, found evi-
dence of child neglect in her
home, will not serve jail time
after pleading guilty to child
neglect with great bodily harm
Thursday.
Kimberly Michelle Barta,
21, of 996 Citrona Drive, #2306
in Fernandina Beach pleaded
guilty to child neglect with
great bodily harm, but adjudi-
cation was withheld. Charges
of possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana, underage
possession of alcohol and open
house party were not prose-
cuted.
Barta was sentenced to two
years' probation and must com-
ply with a DCF case plan, com-
plete a parenting skills class
and a drug and alcohol evalua-
tion and follow-up.
Child neglect with great
bodily harm, a third-degree
felony, carries a maximum sen-
tence of up to five years in


prison. But
according to
court docu-
ments, Barta
will serve no
Additional jail
time.
Barta was
Barta arrested Oct.
19 after she
admitted to
Fernandina Beach Police that
guests in her apartment, some
under the age of 21, were drink-
ing alcohol and smoking mar-
ijuana.
But along with those attend-
ing the party, police found a
two-year-old and a three-month-
old child, the report stated. The
two-year-old was asleep in a
back bedroom in a crib - lying
on blankets that were "wet and
filthy," the report stated. The
three-month-old was asleep in
a car seat on the floor in a back
bedroom on wet, moldy blan-
kets, the report stated.
According to the report,
both children had on only dia-
pers, and authorities were
unable to find items to clothe
them. The three-month old was


shivering from the cold and
holding a bottle of sour milk.
He had "sores under and
around his neck where he had
not been washed," a soiled dia-
per, and was rife with diaper
rash, the report stated.
The apartment was full of
beer cans and bottles, mari-
juana and "filth throughout the
house," the report stated, and
food was caked on dishes
throughout the house and
molded food was observed in
the oven and microwave, the
report stated. The shower was
filled with trash and there were
used diapers throughout the
house with bugs crawling on
them, the report stated.
The Department of
Children and Families was dis-
patched and the children were
taken to a safe place, the report
stated. Barta was charged with
aggravated abuse/neglect,
holding an open house party,
possession of alcohol under 21
and possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana.
Barta had previously been
issued a notice to appear for
possession of drug parapher-


nalia on Sept. 7 after authorities
entered her home following a
domestic dispute with her live-
in boyfriend, 21-year-old Luke
Deane Morgan.
Morgan allegedly pulled
Barta from the back seat of a
friend's car, dragged her inside
the apartment by her shirt,
punched her several times, bit
her and threatened her with a
kitchen knife. According to
reports, he had been watching
her two children while she was
out until 3 a.m. with friends.
When a police officer
arrived, Barta ran screaming
from the apartment. Morgan
fled and, while searching the
apartment, the officer found
drug paraphernalia and mari-
juana residue.
Morgan initially escaped
authorities, but was found a
day later hiding under a bulk-
head in a wooded area behind
Barta's apartment. He was
arrested for aggravated assault
and domestic battery. Morgan
was adjudicated guilty and con-
victed on the aggravated
assault charge and is now serv-
ing two years' probation.


Yulee murder trial now set for Feb. 8


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader

A new trial date of Feb. 8
has been set for Mohamed
Salahudin Alnajjar, charged
with second-degree murder in
the March 2008 shooting death
of 32-year-old Yulee man
Roderick Henderson.
Jury selection is scheduled
to begin Feb. 5 for the 23-
year-old Alnajjar, who has been
held without bond at the
Nassau County Jail since
March 4,2008, after he report-
edly confessed to shooting
Henderson. He has since plead-
ed not guilty.
The original trial date of
Sept. 14 was delayed after
Alnajjar's attorney, Brian
Morrissey, filed a motion to
suppress any statements,
admissions and confessions


r- ----------------------


made by Alnajjar to Nassau
County Sheriff's Office inves-
tigators March 3-4, 2008. Judge
Robert Foster subsequently
denied the motion in chambers
at the Nassau County Judicial
Annex Oct. 30, paving the way
for the new trial date.
Morrissey's motion to sup-
press alleged that investigators
improperly induced statements
from Alnajjar.
According to the document,
"The statements obtained from
Defendant were not freely and
voluntarily given, and were the
result of threats, promises and
inducements. Said statements
were obtained in violation of
Defendant's rights guaranteed
by Amendments Five and
Fourteen, Constitution of the
United States and Article I,
Section 9, Constitution of the
State of Florida."

A iIt goes on
to cite specif-
ic details,
including
"implied and
explicit
threats that
the Defen-
Alnajjar dant's wife
would be
prosecuted
and jailed if Defendant did not
confess" and "implied promis-
es of leniency that were calcu-
lated to mislead Defendant into
believing he would receive
some benefit from confessing."
Further, it alleges that
detectives "told him the
amount of time he will serve
depends on whether he con-
fessed or made them prove
their case" and "implied that if
the defendant told them he
shot the victim because he was
afraid, the state would recom-
mend leniency."
According to the document,


a detective told Alnajjar, "I'd
like to tell that man in the suit
(former Assistant State
Attorney Stephen Bledsoe) that
he (Henderson) came at you -
scared you."
Assistant State Attorney
Wesley White, director of the
Nassau County State
Attorney's Office, said he was-
n't overly surprised the motion
to suppress was denied.
"I assume (it was denied)
because the detectives con-
ducted themselves in accor-
dance with the law and did a
fine job," White said.
Alnajjar is charged with sec-
ond-degree murder, carrying
a concealed weapon and tam-
pering with or fabricating evi-
dence. He has pleaded not
guilty.
Henderson was found lying
on Palm Tree Drive in Yulee
about 9:45 p.m. March 3, 2008;
he was pronounced dead at the
scene.


Trial delay in Yulee death


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader

A motion to continue was
granted Thursday in the trial of
a Yulee man charged with
manslaughter, third-degree
murder and false imprisonment
in the 2006 death of a deaf man.
A trial date of Nov. 16 had
been set for Michael Dean
Gammons Jr., who is accused
along with brothers Peter Alan
Turlington, 27, and Ralph
Thomas Turlington Jr., 29, in
the 2006 death of Bruce Doss,
22, outside a Yulee bowling
alley.
However, that trial date has
been struck from the calendar.
Gammons and the Turlington
brothers are each scheduled to
appear in court for a pretrial
hearing Dec. 3. The Turlingtons
have already pleaded guilty to
the false imprisonment charge
and currently do not face mur-
der or manslaughter charges,
according to court records.


In July 2008 the Turlingtons
agreed to testify against
Gammons. According to court
documents at the time, the
brothers faced up to one year in
the Nassau County Jail and up
to five years of probation.
Doss died a day after the
three men reportedly held him
down in a ditch outside the
Yulee Bowling Center on US 17
on Dec. 1, 2006. Doss' death
was ruled a homicide shortly
after by the Jacksonville
Medical Examiner's Office.
Reports said Doss, who author-
ities reported had a blood alco-
hol content of 0.26, died as a
result of traumatic asphyxia.
The men initially told police
they were trying to keep Doss
from running onto the road and
getting hurt.
All three were arrested in
June 2007 following investiga-
tions by the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office and the State
Attorney's Office.

Accused of homicide,


soldier back in Texas


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
A man accused of vehicular
homicide in a March crash on
1-95 in Nassau County that
killed a pregnant Jacksonville
woman and her unborn child
has bonded out of the Nassau
County Jail.
Jen Yung Lee, 23, was
being held in lieu of $225,014
bond until a motion Nov. 4 to
reduce the bond was granted
by Circuit Court Judge Robert
Foster, who cut the amount to
$5,002 cash. Lee is represent-
ed by Jacksonville attorney
Charles L. Truncale.
The motion cited Lee's
need to return to Fort Sam
Houston, an Army base in San
Antonio, Texas, where the
active duty sergeant was
undergoing rehabilitation after
his left leg was amputated as
a result of the crash. The
motion states that a year of
rehabilitation is required for
the injury. Lee's rehab started
in July, the document stated.
The document said Lee
turned himself in to Texas
authorities Oct. 15 after Army
officials told him of an out-
standing arrest warrant in
Nassau County. Lee was
booked into the Nassau
County Jail Oct. 31 and
charged with two counts of
vehicular homicide, three
counts of reckless driving with
serious bodily injury and two
counts of racing on the high-
way.
According to court docu-


ments, a judi-
cial review
hearing has
been set for
Jan. 14 in
Nassau
County to
reassess the
Lee progression
of the case
and sched-
ule hearings as it moves
toward a potential trial.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports, Lee
was cutting in and out of traf-
fic on his 2006 Honda motor-
cycle as he drove north on I-
95 in Nassau County on
March 21 about 3 p.m. A 2001
Chevrolet four-door driven by
Vanessa P. Sinclair, 32, of
Jacksonville attempted to
change lanes from the middle
to the right, noticed Lee try to
pass her on the right, swerved
back to the left to avoid a col-
lision and lost control, reports
said.
Both Sinclair's car and
Lee's motorcycle traveled onto
the east shoulder and over-
turned several times.
Sinclair, scheduled to give
birth April 6, and her unborn
male child both died at the
scene, said Lt. Bill Leeper of
the Florida Highway Patrol,
while Lee was transported to
Shands Jacksonville with
injuries that led to a leg ampu-
tation.
Lee was stationed in
Savannah at the time of the
crash, Leeper said.

New trial date set


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
A new trial date has been
set, again, for a Fernandina
Beach man accused of killing
his 67-year-old roommate in
2003.
In a pretrial hearing Nov.
12, Circuit Court Judge Robert
Foster scheduled a trial date of
April 12 for Randall Julian
Powell, 39, charged with mur-
der, armed robbery and grand
theft of an automobile in con-
nection with the death of his
roommate, Gerald Edwin Fair.
Fair was found dead on


Oct. 29, 2003, in his home on
First Coast Highway. Police
said he had been dead for days
when his body was discovered.
Powell was arrested just
over two months later, on Jan.
8,2004, and charged with steal-
ing Fair's car. He was ulti-
mately charged with Fair's
murder.
The cause of Fair's death
was blunt force trauma to the
head, according to the Jack-
sonville Medical Examiner's
Office, but a murder weapon
was never found. Powell has
been held at the Nassau
County Jail since his arrest.

Waterfront project stalls


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
An extensive downtown
waterfront master plan project
has been slowed down due to
some construction obstacles.
According to Curtis Burkett
of Zev Cohen Associates, which
has put together the city's
waterfront master plan, Phase
1B of the project cannot pro-
ceed because of "numerous


obstacles" - one of which is
whether Rayonier will allow
the city to use a parcel of
land for a stormwater retention
pond.
Burkett, who is regional
manager of Zev Cohen, expand-
ed on those problems at a work-
shop Nov. 10 for city commis-
sioners held at City Hall.
Some of those obstacles, he
said, include temporary
removal of waterfront parking,


the downsizing of a roadwa,
and accommodation of foot traf-
fic while construction is going
on.
But a significant obstacle is
that Zev Cohen's original water-
front design included the pos-
sible use of a triangular-shaped
lot on the south end of the
waterfront for stormwater
runoff.
According to Burkett, dis-
cussions with Rayonier about
use of the parcel "died ... with
no direction back from the city
as to moving storm water."
Moving the storm drainage
underground could increase
costs up to $1.5 million, Burkett
said.
Burkett said Rayonier Inc.,
which operates a large paper
plant southwest of the down-
town project, was initially open
to the idea of the city using the
parcel, but negotiations have
stalled.
'The triangular parcel is dif-
ficult for (Rayonier) to use, but
it's very useful for the city,"
Burkett said, which would use
about 2.5 acres of the 5-acre par-
cel for a retention pond.
Mayor Susan Steger sug-
gested city commissioners
restart discussions with
Rayonier before any other
portion of the project contin-
ues.

Strasser, Pirates advance to state


BETH JONES
News-Leader

Senior Stephanie Strasser repeats as
the Region 1-2A cross country champion.
She finished first among the girls in Talla-
hassee Saturday with a time of 18:17.37.
Strasser is the county, district and now
region champion. She moves on to state in
Dade City Saturday. But she is the lone
member of the girls team to advance.
The FBHS boys team advanced to state.
The top six teams qualify and the Pirate
harriers finished in fifth, just eight points
out of third.
"Many of us said it was the best race we
have ever seen," FBHS Coach Mark Durr
said. "We knew our times were really close
to some other schools. We identified
Pensacola Catholic as one of those teams
that could take this away from us and our
guys picked off everyone of the PC guys
that was in front of them in the last mile.
"Our men really manned up. Anyone
can get past somebody in the first 400
meters, but it takes the training and guts
that our guys have to pass people in the
end. These guys are the perfect examples
of what it takes to be a champion. They had
a goal, state, committed themselves to it


and worked their tales off to achieve it. I
could not be prouder or more impressed
with a group of individuals."
'This is Jazz's team. We know he has
been working for four years to get to Dade
City and we will be racing Saturday on his
birthday," Durr said of senior captain Jazz
Tomassetti. "It doesn't get any better than
that. Landon (Kovalick) and Adam (Buech-
ler) led the way for us with Adam achiev-
ing a personal record, which was just what
we needed.
"And the competition with Jazz, Joey
(Collins) and Chris (Keffer), they all are
getting real close to each other, helped us
narrow our gap between our runners,
which is what scores the points you need.
Bradley (Bunch) and Darren's times have
come down dramatically and their train-
ing habits inspire all of us to give that little
extra effort."
Kovalick finished 16th among the boys
with a time of 16:58.87, Buechler was 20th
with a time of 17:09.67, Collins was 30th
(17:42.07), Jazz Tomassetti 47th (18:08.67),
Keffer 53rd (18:17.71), Darren Bunch 69th
(18:58.22) and Bradley Bunch 72nd
(19:05.78).
The FBHS Lady Pirates were just six
points from qualifying for state, finishing in


seventh, so Strasser will make the trip
alone.
"Stephanie was feeling great and really
ran her race," Durr said of the regional
meet. "She doesn't like to make it close, so
she once again blew away her competi-
tion. We thought the course was going to
be a little faster, but it was real tough for all
of the teams.
"Christina's exceptional high school
career is over, but her impact on Pirate
cross country will remain. The twins are
the only seniors we lose on the varsity
team. Of course, they can't be replaced,
but they have left a successful legacy that
we can build on. They have taught the
younger girls, like our fabulous freshman
trio of Taylor Sweet, Lana Tomassetti and
Janica Castro, what it takes to be a cham-

Postseason bowl

Thursday for

Yulee, Providence
BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Yulee Hornets, in their third
season, finished with a 7-3 record after
a 44-18 thumping of host Paxon Friday
night in the 2009 regular season finale.
But the Hornets aren't finished. They
take on host Providence at 8:05 p.m.
Thursday in the Baker Sports Bowl.
"I was happy we finally played a
great road game," said Bobby Ramsay,
Yulee High School football coach.
"We've struggled with that for two
years and the kids responded to the
challenge.
"I was as proud as I've ever been of
the team. They said after Bolles, we
would win out and we did. Now we get
to play a great Providence team
Thursday night in the Baker Sports
Bowl.
"As a team we're really under-
standing now what it's like to succeed
and what it takes to continue to suc-
ceed. I'm very happy about this year
and excited about the future."
Derrick "Shocka" Henry, a fresh-
man, had 319 yards on 43 carries with
a trio of touchdowns to steer Yulee
Friday. Jonathan Knauss, senior, had
120 yards on 10 carries with a touch-
down.
Byron Alderman, also a senior, had
five carries for 64 yards and a pair of
interceptions on defense. Derrick
Peterson scored on a 28-yard recep-
tion. Kelvin Rainey, a sophomore, had
a pair of catches for 18 yards and a
touchdown.
Mychal Culpepper, another sen-
ior, led the Hornet defense with nine
tackles. Knauss had five stops.
Cameron Ponder and Jake Green had
five tackles apiece.
Fernandina Beach (2-8) lost to
Matanzas Friday.


TIP-OFF


The Lady Pirates
basketball team
started off their
season with two
close, exciting
games against
West Nassau last
week in preseason
action. Fernandina
Beach High School
lost by three at
West Nassau Nov.
10 and won by 8
at home Thursday
night. "The girls
played very hard
on both nights,"
FBHS Coach Mike
Landtroop said.
"The games
allowed the girls to
see what we need
to work on in prac-
tice." The Lady
Pirates opened the
season Tuesday at
Baker County.

Gator defense is UFs real rock star


I know it sounds like a broken
record: They are what they
are. But the scene in the end-
zone after the University of
Florida's 24-14 victory over South
Carolina in Columbia Saturday
night might have epitomized the
2009 Gators. After the game, the
team assembled and sang the alma
mater and the fight song in front of
the few thousand Florida fans, who
made the trek north, which has
become a tradition under head
coach Urban Meyer.
The orange and blue faithful typ-
ically use the proximity to get a
high-five, a picture, a lock of hair
(just kidding) of QB Tim Tebow.
But on this night, it was the quar-
terback of the defense, LB Brandon
Spikes, and his compadres getting
the most love. Sure, the crowd
eventually broke into a chant of
"Tebow, Tebow, Tebow," but not
before giving a proverbial embrace
to the Florida defense.
Three weeks removed from a
showdown with Alabama in
Atlanta's Georgia Dome, it seems
that the Gator Nation is finally real-
izing its bread and butter are the 10
guys rallying around No. 51, rather
than No. 15. The boys opposite
Tebow are Florida's 2009 rock stars
and are most vital to the Gators'
championship aspirations.
This is in no way meant to


demean Tebow,
who in about two
months will com-
plete one of the
most storied
careers in college
football history.
There is no doubt
if No. 15 weren't
taking the snaps,
Florida would not
SPORTS be undefeated. As
Tebow goes, so
TALK goes the Florida
offense.
JOHN L. But when it's
CRAWFORD crunch time, I
-...- think it's safe to
say fans would
rather the game be put in the hands
of the Florida defense. In other
words, they would likely rather see
the defense on the field protecting a
slim lead than the offense having to
overcome a deficit with the game
on the line.
And the defense did it again
Saturday night. With the Gators
holding a 17-14 lead and the
Gamecocks facing a third-and-two
deep in Florida territory on the first
play of the fourth quarter, South
Carolina fans smelled blood. And
that silly guy in the chicken cos-
tume probably started resembling a
buzzard circling its prey to Florida
fans.


But the wounded Gator came
back to life in the form of Justin
Trattou, who intercepted a slant
pass and rumbled 53 yards to the
South Carolina 26. A few clock min-
utes later, Tebow tied the SEC
record for career rushing/receiv-
ing touchdowns and gave his team
a 10-point lead. Game over.
Steve Spurrier and his
Gamecocks deserve credit for their
ability to sustain drives against
Florida's stingy defense. They can
probably also take credit for raising
the collective blood pressure of the
Gator Nation a point or two.
With that said, the hand wring-
ing in the stands wasn't quite as
intense as it has been Saturday
night. There seemed to be a quiet
confidence that, despite South
Carolina's moderate success on
offense, Florida's defense would
come up with a play when it had to.
And once again, it did.
Quite frankly, the "they are what
they are" cliche is getting old. I'm
tired of writing it and I'm sure
you're tired of reading it. But I
think Gator fans are starting to
believe it. And most importantly, I
think the Gator defense is relishing
in it.

The Red Cardinals claimed the team title in the Amelia Island Plantation Women's
Golf Association's annual Solheim Cup Tournament.


AIP ladies hold Solheim Cup tournament


The Amelia Island
Plantation Women's Golf
Association held its annual
Solheim Cup Tournament
over a two-day span last week.
The competition drew a field
of 58 participants, who were
drawn based on handicap
indexes monitored by both
captains and the chairwoman
of the event, Lyn Rion, along
with professional Dean
Grunewald.
Thursday's competition
consisted of two nine-hole
matches, the first being best
ball of the twosome and the
second a modified Pinehurst.
The Yellow Finches, cap-
tained by Jane Preston, were
ahead by one point at the end
of that day.
Friday brought with it a
two-person scramble and sin-
gles matches. Lee Kinzel, the
captain of the Red Cardinals,
was excited for her team to
make a comeback.
The ladies enjoyed lunch
while the scores were still
coming in and, in the end, the
teams had tied. A shootout

winner.
The captains picked their
shootout participants and the
entire room full of women
headed to the first tee to
watch and cheer for Yellow
Finches Jeanne Martin and
Carol Kimmel and Red


Cardinals Cherie Billings and
Stephanie Boote.
Billings made short work
of the match by hitting some
of the best shots of the tour-
nament and parring the intim-
idating par-5 to assure the
Red Cardinals as the winner
in the exciting finish.


Wednesday good day for Durden


With last Wednesday
being Veterans Day, which
meant a number of business-
es were closed, the number of
players who turned out to
play in the Wednesday blitz
was somewhat disappointing.
Perhaps it was the threat of
rain as only 46 players took
part.
It was a good day for
Garey Durden, who shot an
84, good for plus 10 points
and individual honors. There
was a tie for second and third
at plus 7 between Kenny
Pickett (77) and Jerry Dean
(76) but they did not make it
onto a winning team.
Durden's plus 10, along
with Rudy Campanale (97,
plus 4) and Charles
Kicklighter (82, plus 2), was
enough to offset the minus 4
of Bob Sibley (94) as the team
won first place at plus 12.
Pickett's plus 7 received
no help from Charles
Helenbrook (94, minus 6),
but Ronnie Boatright, with a
one-under-par 72 and plus 6,
and Michael Kaufman (85,
plus 3) enabled the team to
come in second at plus 10.
An all-plus team of Sam
DuBose (91, plus 3), Larry
Hutchison (84, plus 3), Tom
Gray (84, plus 1) and Ed
Lormand (96, plus 1) finished
third at plus 8.
There was a tie at plus 5
for fourth place between Jim
McFarland (94, plus 5),
Gerald Wilder (85, plus 2),
Pat Whelan (87, even), Bob
Dorsey (84, minus 2) and the
team of Wayne Mortenson
(90, plus 6), Mike Lovejoy
(80, plus 5), Allen Elefterion
(80, even), which also had a
minus 6 from Andy Palmisano
(94).
The weather was great for
the 67 players who took part
in the Friday blitz. D. Rilling
had a round of 80, good for
plus 12 points and individual
honors. Steve Johnson (even-
par 73) and Bob Dorsey (76)
shared second and third
places at plus 8.
Led by Johnson's plus 8,
an all-plus team that included
Tom Purvis (84, plus 6),
Rusty Acree (95, plus 5) and
Jack Croake (81, plus 2) won
first place with a great score
of plus 21.
Finishing a close second, a
five-man team led by Dorsey's
plus 8, with Bill Abee (84,
plus 5), Jack Harrison (86,


GOLF NEWS

plus 5), Marty House (83,
plus 2) and Paul Hensler (92,
minus 1) was plus 19.
Another five-man team
was also in double figures as
Sammy Alvarez (78, plus 5),
Mickey Rushton (82, plus 4),
Tom Forristal (95, plus 3),
Mike Joyce (75, plus 2) and
Robert Johnson (86, minus 1)
finished in third place at plus
15.
There was a big dropoff to
fourth place as Rilling (plus
12) received no help from
Hydie Peterson (85, minus 8),
Dave Bandelin (88, even) and
Jim Edwards (95, even) and
the team finished at plus 4.
With a tournament that
involved most of those who
play, there was no Saturday

OMEGA Mission Hills World Cup

Purse: $5,500,000
Yards: 7,320
, Par: 72


The OMEGA Mission Hills World
Cup is a tournament contested
by teams of two representing
their country. Only one team is
allowed from each country. The
players are selected on the basis


of the Official World Golf Rankings, although not all of the first choice players
choose to compete. The tournament was founded by Canadian industrialist
John Jay Hopkins, who hoped it would promote international goodwill through
golf. It began in 1953 as the Canada Cup and changed its named to the World
Cup in 1967. The format is alternating stroke play rounds of bestball (fourball)
and alternate shot (foursomes). This year, the tournament will be played at
Mission Hills Golf Club in Shenzhen, China.


- Stephen Ames, 45, won his ' Tournament Results
second title in three years at Champion: Stephen Ames
the Children's Miracle Purse: $846,000
Network Classic on Sunday, T-2nd: J. Leonard & G. McNeill
edging George McNeill and Purse: $413,600
Justin Leonard in a playoff T-4th: N. O'Hern &J. Rose
to become the oldest winner Purse: $206,800
in the tournament's history. Leonard rimmed out a 16-foot putt
for the win in regulation, even beginning to pump his fist in
celebration only to watch the ball spin away. During the playoff,
Ames outlasted Leonard and McNeill, winning with a par on the second play-
off hole. It was the first win of the year and fourth career victory for Ames,
including The Players Championship in 2006.


I f One of the main problems that we
S have is that our practice swings are
just so perfect. The tempo, the flow,
the rhythm are just what we are
after. Then, we realize that it is time
to actually make a real shot. When
the tension builds up, the amateur
golfer has the tendency to hit at the golf ball instead
of through it. Therefore, a horrible shot is the result
that becomes all too familiar. A good drill to try at
home is to practice your swing using whiffle balls.
You may think that the whiffle ball won't help you
any, but it really is a great help. The basic premise
is that you can swing at the whiffle ball as hard as
you can and it still goes the same distance.
Therefore, the whiffle ball is teaching you to make
a proper swing and always look at the ball and this
practice should carry over to your round.

Only the top 125 players on the PGATour's money list will receive
a tour card for the following season. Below are the players on the

Fall deer




hunts on

"I teamed up with some friends of mine and
began hunting a private club in South
Georgia's Ware County several hunting sea-
sons ago," Tony Peeples said. "Then, an open-
ing came in a larger tract of leased hunting
lands located right next to
our hunt club. I soon signed
up as a member of the Big
Swamp hunt club.
"This was a much larger
tract of leased land that
involved some 15,200 acres of
land, which is actually part of
the Federal Reserve National
Wildlife Reserve that entails
OUTDOORS some 700,00 acres."
Peeples is a local charter
boat captain who operates the
TerrIyLacoss "Southern Style" sport fish-
ing boat during the prime
months of the seasons for a wide variety of
saltwater game fish. But during the tail end of
the fall, Peeples puts aside his fishing tackle
and travels to South Georgia, where he hunts
for big game, including bear, deer and hogs.
"I love to hunt with my dogs," he said. "I
raise my own dogs and right now I have six
Walker hound dogs I let loose in the woods. I
really don't enjoy still-hunting from a stand
when oftentimes a day in a stand goes by with-
out seeing a single deer or wild game.
'The anticipation of the dogs running
through the thick bushes and woods keeps
me excited about the prospects of having a
trophy buck running right from the woods
and within range of my 12-gauge shotgun."
Peeples loaded up his six hunting dogs into
dog boxes on the bed of his four-wheel drive
truck and drove to an area of the Big Swamp
hunt club Oct. 24.
"As soon as I stopped the truck at the edge
of the woods where it meets a swampy area of
the Okefenokee Swamp, my hunting dogs
became very excited with high-pitched yap-
ping and deep barks with anticipation of run-
ning the woods for big game."
During the morning hunt, the dogs worked
the deep woods and thick brush where
hunters could not venture on foot. Later that
morning the dogs, working as a team, began
pushing a big buck and doe towards their
owner's position at the edge of the woods in
an open field.
"I typically stand on the dog boxes on the
bed of my truck to get a better look over the
high bushes," Peeples said. "While waiting
patiently for the dogs to push the deer out into
the open, a large doe jumped out right in front
of me and into the open field.
"Seconds later a large buck exited the deep
woods right behind the doe and within range
of my Remington 1187 12-gauge shotgun."
Peeples took aim and brought the trophy
buck down with one shot of his shotgun.
"I could not have asked for a better shot at
the buck," Peeples said. 'The dogs did a per-


SPECIAL PHOTOS
Tony Peeples, left, took this trophy eight-point buck during a recent Georgia deer hunt in Ware County. The big buck weighed just
over 140 pounds. Steven Lankford, right, killed this massive 160-pound, eight-point buck during the first day of Florida's deer
hunting season.


fect job of running the buck right into my
hunting stand."
Peeples not only enjoys deer hunting in
South Georgia, he also enjoys eating deer
meat.
"After I have cleaned my deer, I put the
meat into a large cooler with ice," Peeples
said. "I will leave the drain open so the ice is
continually melting. As the ice melts and runs
out of the drain in the bottom of the cooler, it
is continually washing the deer meat. For
three days I will keep the cooler full of ice,
then the deer meat is ready for packaging and
storing in my freezer.
"I like to fry my deer meat. Using the
flanks of the deer, I will cut them into thin
steaks, roll them in flour and seasoning, then
fry them in a hot frying pan. I also make up a
lot of deer sausage and hamburgers from the
deer meat."
Steven Lankford also took a trophy buck
during a recent hunt on the Nassau Wildlife
Management area at the Nassau River Hunt
Club. Lankford's big buck had eight points
and weighed 160 pounds. Lankford took his
deer of a lifetime during the first day of
Florida's deer hunting season with a 30-06
rifle.
Georgia's big game hunting season for
deer began Oct. 17 and runs through Jan. 1.
Hunters can take two bucks and 10 does dur-
ing the season, while a special permit is need-
ed to hunt with dogs. Visit www.georgia

Remembering Hiroshima
The Kiwanis Club of Fernandina Beach learned a great deal about Hiroshima and the
first atomic bomb from Bill Crawford, who was an 18-year-old in the Navy, stationed
at Hiroshima a few weeks after the bomb was dropped. Crawford shared pictures and
observations about the total devastation. He said about 125,000 people were killed
and many more were injured. He talked about the Manhattan Project and the deci-
sion to drop the bomb. Above are Kiwanians Bill Dickson, Jeff Shipman, Crawford -

Cookbook a recipe to end domestic violence


For the News Leader

Capturing the beauty,
charm, and flavors of a day on
Amelia Island, A Savory Place:
Culinary Favorites of Amelia
Island is a new cookbook that
will delight readers with both
culinary treasures and gor-
geous photography, all the
while contributing to a worthy
cause: ending domestic vio-
lence in Northeast Florida.
Beginning as a simple con-
cept to raise funds and aware-
ness, Micah's Place's first cook-
book is a remarkable
achievement that is certain to
delight cooks, cookbook lovers
and those wanting to reconnect
with that "certain something"
that makes Amelia Island such
a wonderful place.
Featuring 170 recipes hand-
selected and carefully tested
by a dedicated team of Micah's
Place Auxiliary members, the
cookbook takes readers on a
delicious journey from
"Beginnings" - appetizers with
an Southern island flair - all
the way through the day to
"Endings" - desserts that cap-
ture the essence of relaxing as
the sun sets over the salt
marsh. Each section also
includes the island photogra-
phy of Max Hertwick and


Tastings
The public is invited to
special tasting from the
new cookbook, A Savory -
Place, Culinary Favorites of'
Amelia Island. Cookbook
sales benefit Micah's Place,
Nassau County's domestic
violence center.
Tastings will be held
Nov. 19, 5:30-7 p.m. at the
Intercoastal Wine Co.; Nov.
21, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., and Nov.
22, 8 a.m.-1 p.m., at St.

Osprey Village.


Robie Ray, making the book as
much a coffee table treasure
as a culinary one.
Since domestic violence is,
at its core, a home-based issue,
a cookbook seems a particu-
larly fitting way to bring aware-
ness and needed funds to a
truly worthy cause. "If we take
into consideration the national
statistic that one out of every
four women is a victim of
domestic violence then you can
be certain that you know some-


one that has been touched by
this crime," explains Shandra
Riffey, executive director of
Micah's Place. "No one is
immune - not your sister, your
mother, your aunt, your friend
or yourself. Help us stop the
violence for all our sake."
Often a hidden problem,
domestic violence is more
prevalent than many people
realize. Recent statistics
showed that 5.3 million women
are abused every year in


America (source: American
Institute on Domestic
Violence). Underlining the
magnitude of the issue, Katey
Breen, development director,
says, "Every single person
knows someone who has been
affected by domestic violence,
even if they are not aware of
it."
This issue is a constant
struggle, but Micah's Place is
providing real solutions - and
hope - to affected individuals
and families, providing safe
housing, life skills training, edu-
cation, child assessments and
many more services to ensure
a smooth transition to a new
life and support an individual or
family as they leave an abusive
situation for good.
Perfect for all cooks from
beginner to gourmet, A Savory
Place is also ideal for bridal
shower or wedding gifts, host-
ess gifts, housewarming gifts
and for display as a beautiful
coffee table book. Order sev-
eral for holiday gifts, too.
Purchase the book today at
www.asavoryplace.com.
A Savory Place is a full-color,
8 by 10 inch book, published by
Favorite Recipes Press,
Nashville, Tenn., ISBN 978-0-
615-29646-3. The book retails
for $24.95.

Meet Trisha the yellow
tabby. That's right, she is a
yellow tabby, which is unusu-
al, because most yellow tab-
bies are male.
Trisha has a wonderful
personality and enjoys time
spent on a lap being stroked.
She is a small-framed kitty
who does well with others.
Trisha loves climbing on the
new cat trees, and taking in
the sights of the birds from
the cattery window. She is
about 3 years old, and her
favorite food is Fancy Feast
tidbits.
To learn more about
Trisha and all of her friends at
RAIN, please call (904) 879-

mane@yahoo.com. RAIN will
hold a sidewalk sale on Nov.

Fernandina from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.


STARS


I am a single, blond,
neutered male (Chihuahua),
only 9 pounds, about 3 years
old looking for a stable rela-
tionship, no players please. I
was found by a kind lady who
had the patience of waiting a
week before I trusted her
enough to let her pet me. I
knew she was an animal per-
son because she already had 5
dogs, and that explains why
she did not have room for me.
She contacted Stars to see if
they had room for me and
helped pay for my heartworm
treatment, like so many of us
who have been stray, those
darn mosquitoes got me too.
I've been alone for a long
time and have trust issues
that my foster mom says will
take my new family a few days
to gain my confidence. I real-
ly want to have a person of
my own. I have completed my
heartworm treatment and am
now ready for my forever
home. And the advantage of
my not being a puppy any-
more is no chewing, and I
won't mind if you go off to


work and leave me alone for 8
hours because I won't tear the
house up, I'll just rest up and
wait for you.
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.

pets and pet-lovers


I hate the holidays. I won't
go into the emotional baggage
that goes behind this statement.
Let's just leave it at that. With
that being said, I start obsessing
over gift choices right around
mid-summer. Especially since I
also hate shopping. This year I
am attempting to reach beyond
my own neuroses to help others
with their gift-giving dilemmas.
Here are my top choices of gifts
for pets and pet lovers.
When I do shop, I like to
shop local. If anything will put
me in the spirit, it's knowing
that my purchase will also help
a small business owner, proba-
bly one of my neighbors. In this
economy, we all need all the
help we can get. Here on the
island, we are fortunate to have
two great shops that focus on
pets and their owners. Bark
Avenue at the Plantation always
has unique gift ideas. And no
holiday is complete at my house
without a trip to Redbones
Bakery at 809 S. Eighth St. for
baked treats. Gift certificates to
one of these shops, or to a
groomer or pet sitter, may be
greatly appreciated.
While exploring local shops,
I discovered a gem in Nassau
Diamond Showroom at 1743 S.
Eighth St. They offer beautiful
trinket boxes in the shape of
dogs and cats. Many different
breeds are represented. Each
trinket box contains a pendant
of the breed on a pretty chain. I
was impressed with the detail
and color of these boxes. I can
definitely see a few of these dar-
ling boxes in my future!
Another great idea for a spe-
cial gift is a painted portrait of
the family pet. Local artist
Barbara Noden painted a won-
derful picture of my dearly
departed dog, Jake. Based on a
photograph, her rendering cap-
tures his likeness but adds an
artistic flair. Barbara can be
reached at 491-3816 or ipaintur-
pup@gmail.com.
I've noticed that many ani-
mal lovers are also book lovers.
Through a Dog's Ear: Using
Sound to Improve the Health &
Behavior of your Canine
Companion by Joshua Leeds
and Susan Wagner, DVM, MS,
is a good choice. I discovered
this book when planning my
business. Much of what I
learned I incorporated into the
atmosphere of the spa. It dis-
cusses the scientific basis
behind the idea that sounds
affect animal behavior, posi-
tively or negatively. The book
itself comes with a starter CD of
music. You can also purchase
CDs for calming your pet. This
is a great gift for our snowbird
friends that travel with pets!
Another book that has
stayed with me for many years
and that I have given as a gift is
Pack of Two by Carolyn Knapp.
This is a work of non-fiction
based on the journey of young
woman who is a newly recov-
ering alcoholic. As she begins to
piece her life back together, she
decides to adopt a dog. The
book details the role that her
new best friend has in her ongo-
ing recovery. But best of all is
her discovery of the joys of own-
ing a pet. For those of us who
have always made pets a central
part of our lives, it is a refresh-
ing and inspirational to hear


from some-
one learning
this for the
first time. I
a don't believe
, Ayou are likely
L to find either
S of these
books at a
local book
THE store. How-
HAPPY ever, Margo
PET Shaw of
Books Plus at
107 Centre St.
Laurie may be able
Buckley to order these
books by
request.
My last gift suggestion goes
beyond the reaches of our little
corner of paradise. Robin
Durnbaugh is an artist I met
many years ago at a dog show in
Tampa. She has a unique spe-
cialty of making jewelry from
your pet's nose print. Yes, I said
nose print. I was completely
enamored with this idea. As a
child I was fascinated by the
nose of our dog, Kelly, and often
examined it with a microscope
to see all the lines and sections.
That's when I wasn't kissing her
nose. Poor dog! As an adult, the
idea of making a lasting impres-
sion of a dog nose spoke to my
heart. So when Jake was 13
years old I had a sterling silver
pendant made of his nose. This
unique piece of jewelry brings
me a lot of comfort since Jake
passed away last year. For infor-
mation on Robin's work, go to
her website at robinsloving-
touch.com.
No article on holiday gifts
for pets and pet lovers would
be complete without reminding
everyone what does not make a
great gift. That is the pets them-
selves. Choosing a pet is a per-
sonal decision that should be
made by the person who is
going to live with that pet for
the next 12 to 20 years. It is a
major responsibility and com-
mitment. Instead of giving a pet,
consider a gift certificate to a
local shelter or rescue group.
Combined with a gift box of pet
supplies, this makes a great gift.
And as always a plug for our
hardworking shelters and res-
cue groups. If you are shopping
for the person who has every-
thing, why not consider a dona-
tion in their name to one of
these worthy groups? They
exist only because of donations.
A true pet lover will appreciate
knowing their gift may save or
improve an animal's life.
Don't forget to sign up for
the 10th Annual Parade of Paws
Dec. 5, sponsored by Redbones
Bakery. Hundreds of dogs
descending on Centre Street in
their holiday finest is more than
worth the minimum donation
of $10 to the Nassau Humane
Society. For information, visit
redbonesbakery.com or call
321-0020.
