revised to address that.
Hurley said the ordinance
is "perfectly appropriate" as
written, but it is incumbent on
those bothered by the noise to
stand up, give their informa-
tion and testify to their com-
plaint alongside officers who
go to the scene and verify that
the complaint is legitimate.
He said police would request
that complainants, at the point
of contact, be listed as wit-
nesses.
"We're trying to enforce
the ordinance while striking
some balance," he said. "I'm
going to see that officers take
into account the number of
complaints received, docu-
ment any witnesses for any
proceedings that result and
redact complainants that use
this for their own devices. One
bar complaining about anoth-
er is not going to happen any-
more."
But Hurley said he dis-
agrees with the characteriza-
tion that there is a rash of ille-
gitimate complaints. He said
recent letters to the editor of
the News-Leader that criticized
the handling of noise com-
plaints by city police during
Florida-Georgia weekend
were inaccurate.
"The officers were very
tactful," he said. "They were
doing their job as proscribed
by the ordinance. The letters
to the editor, were inflamma-
tory and inaccurate - that's a
problem."
Commissioner Jeffrey
Bunch, telling the commis-
sion he had spoken to police,
bar employees and bar cus-
tomers who witnessed the
incidents, said the letter writ-
ers were inaccurate.
Furthermore, Hurley said,
there was only one incident
that he was aware of that
involved a complaint he
wouldn't deem legitimate,
while the others were legiti-
mate as verified by officers
who assessed the situation
firsthand. But he said those
taking advantage of the
enforcement strategy for their
own aims tie up resources.
"You get into a situation
where, the more people know
what the strategy is, the more
they try to circumvent it," he
said. "We try to look for com-
promise but there are other
things we could be doing."
But he said, essentially, the
ordinance is cut and dry.

12, 1 or 2 a.m."
Hurley would not discuss
specific establishments, but
generalized why some are
more prone to complaints.
"If there's no action you
can take to fix the problem,
then that's a problem itself,"
he said. "Mitigation is closing
a door on a loud establish-
ment If your business has out-
side patrons and you can't con-
trol the noise, that's a problem
and itfs hard to reconcile that"
For example, Commission-
er Tim Poynter has noted The
Palace Saloon can close its
doors and restrain noise, but
The Green Turtle Tavern has
an open porch that allows
noise to escape next door to
The Florida House Inn, where
visitors may be trying to sleep.
There is also discretion on
the part of officers, Hurley
said, to enforce the 25-foot
rule. He said the 25-foot limit
for noise is a starting point
and officers are allowed to
make up their own minds as
to whether audible sounds
constitute a violation. He said
in most cases the noise that
garners warnings - and sub-
sequently fines - is clearly
audible from a much greater
distance, often 75-100 feet.
Hurley compared noise
enforcement with that of
speeding.
"There is a range of dis-
cretion," he said. "If somebody
is going 52 mph where the
speed limit is 50 and they get
pulled over for speeding, they
might get a verbal warning
and people are generally OK
with that. But if someone is
going 62 in a 50 mph zone,
most people would agree it's
speeding and a ticket would
be appropriate. We're looking
for compliance; we'd prefer
that people don't speed so
we'd never have to write a tick-
et, but that's not a reality."
Compromise is key,
Hurley said, but sometimes
it's nearly impossible given
the varying businesses, resi-
dents and guests downtown.
"My ambition is to provide
an enforcement strategy that
is compatible with our prac-
tice of compromise," he said.
'Trying to do the will of the
commission while dealing
with all sides of the issue is
not easy to do. Sometimes you
just have incompatible neigh-
bors whose business practices
differ.... When you have com-
peting interests occupying the
same spot, you're going to
have conflict. But you have to
side with who is obeying the 1
ordinantes." i ..:...

I am 120 percent in favor of complete
and utter transparency. I do believe
everything should be out in the open.'
COMMISSIONER TIM POYNTER


CITY Continued from 1A
not reported that public offi-
cials have violated Florida's
Sunshine Law unless they
were found by a court of law to
have done so. The newspaper
is unaware of allegations that
Steger or Poynter broke the
law.
Steger could not be
reached for comment. But
according to Poynter, the two
officials bent over backwards
to avoid any appearance of vio-
lating Sunshine Law at the
chamber meeting.
"We went over and spoke to
about 15 people at'the board
meeting," he said, but the two
commissioners spoke sepa-
rately and did not appear toget-
her in the room as each spoke.
That may not have been
necessary under state law,
Poynter said, but added, "We
don't want to have what might
look like a (Sunshine) issue."
Police Chief Jim Hurley
also spoke .to the chamber
.board, which had requested
the meeting to discuss a
revised noise law that has been
controversial.
"I am 120 percent in favor of
complete and utter trans-
parency," Poynter said. He
acknowledged that Sunshine
Law can sometimes be awk-
ward and inhibitiefficiency, but
said, "I am certainly to live with
that I do believe everything
should be out in the open."
The News-Leader learned
about the meeting when City
Manager Michael Czymbor
mentioned itduring a city com-
mission meeting Nov. 17. The
city's action report on the
meeting the next day con-
firmed that both Steger and
Poynter had attended it.
The newspaper submitted
by e-mail a public records
request to City Clerk Mary
Mercer, which stated: "I noted
this entry under city manag-
er's comments on the Nov. 17
commission meeting minutes:
"'NOISE ORDINANCE:
City Manager Czymbor
explained the Mayor, Commis-
sioner Poynter, the Police
Chief, and he met with the
Chamber of Commerce last
week to talk about some mis-
conceptions as well as provide
:somri clarification' about the
Noise Ordinance (i.e., how it is

enforced, what it means, and
what the City was doing).'
"Please send me a copy of
the public notice that was dis-
tributed about this meeting of
two commissioners. The News-
Leader did not receive such a
notice, and would have appre-
ciated an opportunity to attend.
Thank you."
Nassau County govern-
ment routinely sends a public
notice whenever two or more
commissioners might attend
the same function. For exam-
ple, such a notice was sent
before the Thursday ceremony
where Rayonier celebrated the
planting of its billionth tree at
Goffinsville Park in Nassau-
ville.
Mercer replied to the News-
Leaderby e-mail Thursday and
said there had been no such
public notice. She subse-
quently sent by e-mail infor-
mation from the state
Sunshine manual explaining
the law that covers when one
or more commissioners meet
Five minutes later, at 2:37
p.m. Thursday, Bach sent her
e-mail warning of possible
legal action. She also wrote,
"Barbara Peterson, Sunshine
Law expert, is aware of this
meeting and agrees with me
that no Sunshine Law violation
occurred."
Peterson, president of the
FirstAmendment Foundation,
could not be reached for com-
ment, but she customarily
reminds reporters that she
cannot stipulate whether or
not a Sunshine Law violation
occurred; only a court can rule
on that.

Live Oak" contest The first was
held in 2002 with help from the
local Sierra Club. At that time,
he says, the largest tree on the
Amelia Island was on South
11th Street.
This time, the largest Amelia
Island tree measured at 270.5
inches in circumference and
86.1 inches in diameter, and is
located on Bluff Road next to
Curtiss Lasserre's house in
Amelia City. That tree, said
Manzie, was also the most
attractive one.
Manzie says he believes the
biggest trees, estimated to be
250 to 300 years old, are too old
to have been deliberately plant-
ed for shade. He also says peo-
ple may have adapted to trees
that were already here, build-
ing homes and farms around
them.
The heaviest concentration
of live oaks, Manzie said, seems
to be on the island, because
many of the trees located fur-
ther out in the county may have
been used for timber and ship-
building.
"They didn't take them down
on the island as much as in the
county," said Manzie. Today,
the county still does not have a
tree ordinance, while trees are
protected in Fernandina Beach.
The city also financed an "urban
forestry" survey last summer,
which was conducted in con-
junction with an Urban Com-
munity Forestry grant from the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer services.
The project provided pertinent
data on the city's estimated,
7,000 publicly owned trees.
Manzie says he used a new
method, which he found on the
Internet, to measure the trees
for this contest. Because many
of the trunks are irregular in
shape, a measurement was
taken around each tree at 41/2
feet from the ground, then


mathematically converted to the
diameter.
'This way, the measure-
ments were a little more accu-
rate," he says. Still, he says he
would get five different results
measuring the same tree five
times, but he averaged out the
measurements for one figure.
In all, Manzid recorded the
measurements of 51 oak trees
county-wide, with the smallest
tree being located on Comman-
chee Road south of Callahan
and measuring 45.5 inches
(about 3.8 feet) in diameter.
Manzie has written an e-mail
to county commissioners asking
that the power lines on Marsh
Hen Road be re-routed under-
ground, so the largest live oak
in Nassau County will not be
damaged.
"Quite simply, this type of
destruction is not necessary
and should not be allowed,"
Manzie wrote to county com-
missioners in a mid-November
e-mail.
A proposed county tree ordi-
nance was voted down in early
2008. The unincorporated sec-
tion of Amelia Island like the
city has protection for its trees.

Home sales increase in October


The Northeast Florida
Association of Realtors
(NEFAR) announced that
home sales in the Jacksonville
area for October continued on
an upward track.
Closed sales were 1,303 - a
27.1 percent increase from the
1,025 in October 2008.
Pending sales spiked up dra-
matically, with a 78.8 percent
increase over October 2008.
Pending sales during the past
few months have continued to


increase, without doubt an
indicator that first-time home-
buyers were taking advan-
tage of the $8,000 federal tax
credit.
Sales prices are much lower
than last year's levels. The aver-
age sales price during October
was $179,205, a 16.8 percent
decrease from the $215,516
average in October 2008.

many others, are included in

Collect rainwater in


barrels for home use
Dear EarthTalk How can I
make good use of the rainwater
that runs down my roof and into
mygutters?
Brian Smith., Nashua, NH o ..
For most of us, the rain that
falls on our roof runs off into . ..
the ground or the sewer sys-
tem. But if you're motivated to
save a little water and re-dis-
tribute it on your lawns or plants .....
- or even use it for laundry, dish- - _
es or other interior needs - col-
lecting rainwater from your gut-
ters' downspouts is a no-brainer.
If it's allowed in your state,
that is. Utah and parts of
Washington State have anti-
quated but nonetheless tough
laws banning anyone but own-
ers of water rights from col-
lecting rainwater flowing off pri-
vately owned rooftops. Such
laws are rarely enforced, how-
ever, and one in Colorado was
recently overturned.

Weatherization services
include improvements such as
caulking and weather stripping
doors and windows, replacing
door thresholds, repairing duct
systems, adding insulation to
attics and walls and making
minor repairs to floors and ceil-
ings.
Funding for the program is
provided by the U.S.
Department of Energy and the
Florida Department; of
Community Affairs.
In 2008, NFCAA received
$453,000 for the program. This
year, the agency's budget is
$1.04 million and an estimated
536 homes are expected to be
complete before the end of
2010. In the coming month,
NFCAA expects to receive,
based on performance, an addi-
tional $4 million for the pro-
gram as a result of the
American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act
"Most low income families
spend 17 percent of their total
annual income on energy, while
the a% rage for niost homes is
-1 percent. That means many
folks forego basic necessities to
keep their homes heated and
cooled during peak seasons,"
said John Edwards, executive
director of the- Northeast
Florida Community Action
Agency. "By weatherizing
homes, low income families


can realize both short- and
long-term savings on their util-
ity bills."
Weatherizing not only helps
individual homeowners, but the
community as well by improv-
ing housing quality, reducing
greenhouse gas emissions and
supporting the local economy.
For every $1 invested in the
program, weatherization
returns $1.67 in reduced ener-
gy bills.
Nassau County residents
interested in learning more
about the weatherization pro-
gram should call the Northeast
Florida Community Action
Agency at 261-0801.
. For more than 40 years, the
Northeast Florida Community
Action Agency (NFCAA) has
been a driving force in elimi-
nating poverty in Northeast
Florida. In addition to providing
emergency financial assistance
to those in need, NFCAA's edu-
cational programs and services
help individuals earn, maintain
and grow an income to achieve
sdkufficiency and financial
independence. Coupled with
youth development services
and community improvement
projects, NFCAA and its clients
help build better communities

Weathersby and Charles
Floyd came out on top in
the 2-person category. A
team from The Journey
Church, with Simmons,
Kelley Walker, Minton

Island's Shop with Cops seeks donations


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader

The Fernandina Beach Shop
with Cops program, which pro-
vides Christmas. presents to
deserving children on Amelia
Island, will be held Dec. 16.
100 percent of donations go
to children ages 1-11, selected
by Southside Elementary
School counselors, to shop with
a city police officer atWal-Mart
in Fernandina Beach. This year
the program hopes to serve
about 150 needy youngsters, at


$100 per child.
The volunteer officers help
the children shop for items
based on needs (clothing, socks
and diapers) and wants (toys,
games and bikes).
Volunteer Program chair-
man Don Monahan noted that
this has been an especially dif-
ficult year for most everyone
because of the faltering econo-
my. With Christmas right
around the corner, some fami-
lies are wondering how they will
be able to afford the items on
their children's wish lists.


SFor many, it's no use to even
make a list because there sim-
ply isn't the money to grant
those holiday wishes, he added.
The program benefits the
community because it not only
makes the holiday bright for
needy children, it also fosters a
good relationship between
those children and law enforce-
ment, Monahan said.
"This access to law enforce-
ment personnel.can be seen in
an entirely'new light, as helpers
and givers, to keep them safe
and not always as enforcers of


the law. It could go a long way
toward a'work together attitude
and crime prevention,"' he
noted.
Contributions may be made.
to the Fernandina Beach Police
Department, attention Capt. Jim
Coe at "Shop With Cops
Program," 1525 Lime St.,
Fernandina Beach, FL 32035-
0668. All donations are tax-
deductible.

tact Monahan at shopwith-

This was written by Jason

from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, the city of Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion ofa crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information

tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
anonymously by calling 2250147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach

Home invasion
An 81-year-old Fernandina
Beach man was the reported
victim of a home invasion rob-
bery Saturday when he was hit
with a blunt object and robbed
of $200.
According to Nassau County
Sheriffs Office reports, the man
first contacted authorities about
3:30 p.m. Saturday to report a
suspected burglary he said took
place over the last month. The
back door was pried open at the


man's home on the 96000 block
of Lonnie's Lane and a televi-
sion and DVD player stolen, a
report stated. Deputies were
unable to find any footprints,
tire impressions or latent fin-
gerprints.
Hours later, just before 8:30
p.m., the man answered a knock
at his door and was hit over the
head with a blunt object, knock-
ing him to the floor, a report
stated. The suspect demanded
money while hitting the man in
the head, causing a small lac-
eration near his left ear, the
report stated.
According to the report, the
suspect fled the scene with $210
from the man's pocket. Rescue
70 examined the victim at the
scene, but he refused to go to
the hospital, the report stated.
The incident is pending inves-
tigation.
Mistaken identity
A possible case of mistaken
identity on the roadway
Thursday evening led to an
altercation in which a Callahan
man reportedly stabbed an
assailant after a brief attack.
The 24-year-old victim was
traveling southon Ratliff Road


just after 7 p.m. Nov. 19, a
Nassau County Sheriffs office
report stated, when four white
males in a silver Mitsubishi with
one red fender came from
behind with headlights flash-
ing. The victim told authorities
he saw one of the men flashing
a gun out the driver's side win-
dow.
As the victim approached
Woodland Drive and Pinewood
Court, an older model black
Chevy Suburban with duct tape
on the passenger window pulled
into the roadway, blocking trav-
el, the report stated.
A white male exited the car
and yelled at the victim about
messing with "Kylie," then
punched him in the face, the
report stated.
SAccording to the report, the
victim, fearing one of the men
had a gun, pulled a knife from
his pocket and stabbed the
assailant in the hand.
As the victim sped from the
scene, he saw the suspect point-
ing in his direction, but the
report made no mention of
shots fired.
The victim told authorities
he had an altercation with the
same vehicle while driving on

Ratliff Road, but that he does
not know the suspects and
believes they mistook him for
someone else.
A deputy returned to scene
and tested what appeared to be
dried blood in the roadway, but
it was not, the report stated.
The knife used by the victim
also was not found, and a check
of local hospitals for stabbing
victims proved fruitless.
Stun gun used
A sheriff's deputy deployed
his stun gun Thursday evening
after a man reportedly tried to
flee into a wooded area near US
17 and Harts Road during a traf-
fic stop.
According to reports, Larry
William Gonzalez, 27, of
Jacksonville was subdued by
the stun gun and handcuffed
after being pulled over for run-
ning a red light at the intersec-
tion of US 17 and A1A in Yulee.
Gonzalez allegedly admitted his
license was suspended for being
a habitual traffic offender, the
report stated.
Gonzalez was treated and
released by Rescue 30, then
booked into the Nassau County
Jail for driving while license is
suspended or revoked for habit-
ual traffic offenses, a felony, and
resisting an officer without vio-
lence, a misdemeanor, the
report stated.
Barbershop burglars
City police are looking for
suspects in break-ins at two
Fernandina Beach barbershops,
just blocks apart, Thursday
morning.
Just after 7:30 a.m. an
employee at Vic's Barber Shop
at 529 S. Ninth St discovered
the glass front door of the busi-
ness was broken, a police report
stated. Inside he discovered

about $520 worth of grooming
equipment such as clippers and
scissors missing, the report stat-
ed.
Police canvassed the neigh-
borhood and spoke to a witness
who said she woke to the sound
of breaking glass about 1 a.m.
Thursday, looked outside and
saw the front door of the bar-
bershop appeared to be open.
The woman told police she
saw two men walk from the
north side of the shop, south
on Ninth Street, right on Fir
Street, then west toward Eighth
Street. She said the men were
about five feet, 10 inches to six
feet tall with slender builds, the
report stated. Both wore dark
clothing with hoods over their
heads and she could not tell if
they were white or black, the
report stated.
The witness said the men
were walking fast with their
hands in their pockets, but she
did not think to call police.
A few hours later, just after
10:30 a.m., police responded to
an attempted burglary at Island
Barbershop at 901 S. Ninth St.
A witness contacted the owner
about 9:30 a.m. and told him
someone tried to get into the
barbershop, and when the
owner arrived, he found some-
one had tried to pry the wood
trim from a glass window in one
of the doors, but was not suc-
cessful, the report stated.
The victim said he believed
the suspects knew two other
doors had metal face plates on
the inside, preventing easy
access, the report stated.
Witnesses who live behind
the business reported hearing a
loud noise between 9 and 10
p.m. the previous night, but they
did not see anyone outside, the
report stated.

steals the ball just in front of their own goal to prevent a Pirate goal. Callahan's girls eliminated Yulee in the first game of the day; Yulee's boys
ousted Callahan in game two. The FBMS girls blanked Callahan 6-0 in the title game. Erin Joyce scored a trio of goals, Taylor Kinsley scored two
with one on a penalty kick and Strozinsky scored a goal. Strozinsky had two assists, Lolly Anderson had one and Ashley Kinsley had two. Goalie
Sierra Conner recorded two saves. The FBMS girls were undefeated in the county and never gave up a goal to either Yulee or Callahan. Their
only loss was a non-district game against Lakeside Junior High School. "I'm very proud of all the girls," FBMS Coach Carolyn Sauls said. "The
entire team played hard from start to finish. It was a perfect ending to another great season.

Bowl loss


for Yulee

BETH JONES
News-Leader
Providence (9-2) jumped out
to a 24-0 halftime lead Thursday
in the Baker Sporting Goods
Bowl Game, but Yulee (7-4) bat-
tled in the second half.
"We got it to 31-16 in the
fourth, but couldn't get any.
closer," Yulee High School
football coach Bobby Ramsay
said.
Conner Petty connected
with Derrick Peterson for a 23-
yard touchdown to cut the lead
to 24-8 with 7:23 left in the third
quarter. Derrick "Shocka"
Henry ran in the two-point con-
version.
Henry (190 yards on 21 car-
ries) broke a pair of tackles and
bounced outside down the
Yulee sideline for a 73-yard TD,
going the final 25 yards
untouched to cut host Provi-
dence's lead to 31-16 with 1:35
left in the third quarter.
Petty finished the night with
147 passing yards. Derrick
Peterson had a pair of catches
and Antario Rainey had a recep-
tion for 43 yards. Kelvin Rainey
had three catches.
Cameron Ponder again led
the Hornet defense against the
Stallions with eight tackles,
three for a loss. Byron
Alderman had six tackles and a
pair of pass breakups. Devron
Wingard had five tackles and
Mychal Culpepper and Jake
Litecky had six apiece.
"We lose kids that built a
tremendous foundation for the
future," Ramsay said. "All our
seniors had great careers and
they will really be missed. I
hate to see them leave.
"We do have a very good
group of young players though.
The key though is for them to
work hard in the offseason, as
hard as possible. We must
improve our depth, That is key.
But it's getting there. We have
a winning record to build on a
bright future."


Pirate soccer team goes 2-2 to open the season; girls are 44


Fernandina Beach High School's
boys soccer team was 2-2 heading into
Monday's match at Bartram Trail.
The Pirates opened the season with
an 8-0 shutout against Yulee. Chris
Castro (senior) scored a hat trick in
the game with three goals. Shane
Goodman (fr-4ehman had two goals.
Robby Phillips (junior), Jason Olbina
(senior) and Connor Nelson (sopho-
more) all had goals. Olbina and
Phillips also had assists along with
Tyler Thornton (senior) and Nathan
Shiver (sophomore).
The Pirates picked up another


HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP

shutout, topped Bishop Snyder 1-0.
Castro had the lone goal of the game.
"We had many other opportunities
against Snyder, but were unable to
capitalize," FBHS Coach Dan Snyder
said. "The defense played well, led by
goalie Davis Haney, who earned his
second shutout of the season."
The next games on the schedule
were "tests of character for a some-
what depleted varsity squad," accord-


ing to Snyder. FBHS faced a tough
Fletcher squad next and the Pirates
held Fletcher to just two goals in more
than 80 minutes of play.
'The defense was spearheaded
again by goalie Davis Haney with out-
standing defensive performances
turned in by Mason Suhr (junior)
along with seniors Chris Head and
Olbina," Snyder said.
The Pirates lost 1-0 to Providence.
"The game marked the homecom-
ing of former Pirate head coach Josh
Dunn, who is now coaching for the
Providence varsity program," Snyder


said. "Although the boys played a good
organized game on the defensive end,
the squad was not able to match
Providence's lone goal on the offensive
side of the field."
*The FBHS girls sandwiched a
pair of \ins around a loss in their most
recent matches. Tara Whitaket had
two goals and Lauren Moule had the
other in a 3-0 shutout over St.
Augustine. Emily Wilson and Perin
Bille scored in a 5-2 loss to Clay
County. The Lady Pirates (44) blanked
West Nassau 5-0 on Monday. Rachel
Gillespie, Wilson, Joanna Page, Moule


and Whitaker scored.
*The Yulee Lady Hornets basket-
ball team edged FBHS 45-39 Monday,
dropping the Lady Pirates' record to 1-
2. The score was knotted after a quar-
ter and at the half. Whitney Small (14)
and Ebony Peterson (10) led FBHS
on.the scoreboard.
"The Lady Pirates are looking for-
ward to the re-match against Yulee,"
Coach Mike Landtroop said.
FBHS edged West Nassau 57-53
Thursday. Small had 15 points, Cher-
relle Holcey had 12 and Mackenzie
McBride had 10.

We talk all the time about how to gain
strokes on our golf game and work-
ing around the green is a vital com-
ponent. However, one of the areas
that we hardly ever work on is the
very short wedge. We are talking
ip anywhere from the 20-yard to the 50-
yard shot that is very difficult because we never take
a full swing like.a pitching wedge or with our irons.
Here are a couple of drills to practice to improve your
short wedge game. The first drill is to set a goal for
yourself on the range or around the green and prac-
tice hitting the ball consistently that distance. This
helps you get a feel for how much backswing you
need to hit the ball the appropriate distance. The
other drill is to roll golf balls underhand a set distance
in order to try to develop a rhythm for those tricky
short pitch shots.


Former PGA Champion Mark Brooks won the Callaway Golf Pebble Beach - _.
Invitational for a record third time on Sunday, with birdies on three of the last
four holes for a 5-under 67 and a two-stroke victory over Rickie Fowler and D.A.' .
Points. "I believe I had only four bogeys the entire week and two of those were on --
short putts," said Brooks who had two bogeys and seven birdies in his final round,
including a 16-footer on 18. "I kept the ball in the fairway and that's always been what
I do best."Brooks, 48, who began the final round as co-leader with Fowler, had a 12-under 276
total and became the first three-time winner in the tournament's 38-year history. The seven-time
PGA Tour winner also won the unofficial event in 1992 and 2002. Brboks also finished second in
the event to Juli Inkster in 1990.

One incredible kingfish catch for McMullens


"It was early afternoon and
we had run completely out of
live baits," Barrett McMullen
said. "With two kingfish
weighing in the mid 40s iced
down in our fish bag, we
decided to run to a distant oil
rig and jig up enough live
baits to finish out our day of
king mackerel fishing.
"Normally the two kings
we had caught earlier would .
win the majority of king
mackerel
tourna-
ments, but
we were fish-
ing in the
Mississippi
Delta, where
50-pound
king macker-
el are com-
OUTDOORS monplace."
.. Barrett
McMullen
Terry acoss was fishing
with brother Brant and father
Rube on their kingfish boat,
properly named, "Ocean Isle
Fishing." The family fishing
team hails from Ocean Isles
Beach, N.C., and operates a
marine business called Ocean
Isles Marine,
"We made a 10-mile run
inshore to an oil rig that was
holding bait, but came up
with only a dozen blue run-
ners for our efforts," Barrett
McMullen said. "The only
option was to run back off-
shore and hope we could land
a much larger king mackerel
with one of the live baits that
we had secured."
Good fortune was about to
play a winning hand for the
McMullens as they spotted
several sea birds diving into a
pod of baitfish schooling
close to the surface.
"It was a natural instinct to
secure my 12-foot Carolina
cast net and toss it over that
school of baitfish," Brant
McMullen said. "While sink-
ing deep over the school, I
noticed several pogies run-
ning into the net that made it
almost impossible for me to
hold the net. My father gave
me a hand and we soon had
several good-size pogies
secured in our boat's live bait
well."
The North Carolina king-
fish team rigged the live
pogies to kingfish leaders and
was soon catching 20- to 30-
pound king mackerel.
"We could actually see
kingfish deep under the sur-
face running through the
school of pogies," Brant
McMullen said. 'This prompt-
ed me to rig a double pogy
kingfish-leader and drop it
down deep with aiibWiirigger -
The pair of barbed pogies had

water depth when a kingfish
charged the baits and took off
on a super long run."
"I had the pleasure of
fighting that fast running king
mackerel that nearly spooled
my Shimano Speed Master
kingfish reel," Barrett
McMullen said. "I know that
king ran some 400 yards of
20-pound mono line off my
reel before it took the fight
deep in the 240 feet of water."
Slowly the king mackerel
began to tire and came
straight up to the boat, where
Barrett McMullen was the
first to see his tiring king
mackerel.
"Pop, get the gaff," Barrett
McMullen shouted excitedly.
'This king is huge. Hurry,
hurry!"
Rube McMullen gaffed his
sqo's king just ahead of the
tail and began lifting the king
over the bow of the boat
when the point of the gaff
barbed the rub rail. At this
point, Brant McMullen came
to the rescue and, with all
three fishermen at hand, they
managed to lift the massive
king mackerel onto the bow
of their 32-foot Yellowfin king-
fish boat, powered by a pair of
-350 HP Yamaha outboards.
"It was tie ~ist incredible
fish," Brant McMullen later


told fellow Southern Kingfish
Association fishermen. "As
we stood there and looked at
the massive size of that king
mackerel, we suddenly real-
ized that it was too big to fit in
the kingfish bag or the fish
box."
The McMullens' giant
king mackerel later weighed
74.1 pounds on the SKA tour-
nament scales, where shouts
of appreciation could be
heard throughout the coastal
gambling town of Biloxi,
Miss. Paired with a 44.03-
pound king mackerel they
caught earlier that day, the
McMullens took home first-
place honors in the presti-
gious 2009 SKA Biloxi
National Championship with
an SKA record-breaking two-
fishaggregate weight of
118:13 pounds... .
Their 74.1-pound king
mackerel also set a new
record for the SKA as the
largest king mackerel ever
weighed in during an event.
The McMullens' king mack-
erel is also the pending new
Mississippi state record king
mackerel.
The event was set for two
days of competition, but a
weather front was supposed
to-arriveSAturday.:SKA direc-
tor Jack Holmes gave all the


216 teams registered for the
tournament the option of
-weighing in two king macker-
el during the first day, one
each day or two on the final
day.
Fernandina Beach's Jeff
and Nancy Dunbar invited me
to fish with them on the "Fish
Dancer" during the first day
of the event. The Dunbars ran
some 75 miles offshore and
fished an area called the
"Horseshoe." Shortly after 2
p.m. Jeff and Nancy Dunbai
had nearly run out of live
hardtails after experiencing a
kingfish bite of a lifetime.
"In all my days of king
mackerel fishing, I have
never experienced a kingfish
bite like this one," Jeff
Dunbar said. "After barbing a
live bait and dropping it back
behind our.slow ti lling 'Fil!1'
Dancer,' it did not take more
than 15 seconds before a 20-
to 40-pound kingfish was eat-
ing the live bait."
I witnessed some 50 boats
fishing in the same area at
any given time and most of
the boats were fighting king-
fish. Kingfish were sky-rock-
eting on live baits and it was
the most incredible kingfish
bite ever.

Hunt Nassau Wildlife Management
Hunt the Nassau Wildlife Management
Area in Nassau County during this hunting
season. Nassau WMA is 13,892 acres near
Callahan. Users must have a Nassau recre-
ational use permit to hunt on this area. Nassau
WMA is a still-hunt area only, but hunters may
use bird dogs during the migratory bird and
waterfowl hunting seasons.
For those willing to pay $385 to hunt the
area, Nassau WMA provides hunting opportu-
nities during eight months of the year. General
gun season is through Jan. 10, 2010; small
game is from Jan. 11 through March 7, 2010;
spring turkey season runs from March 20
through April 25, 2010; and trapping can be
done from Jan. 11 through March 1, 2010.
To apply for a recreational use permit to
hunt on Nassau WMA, go to MyFWC.com.
Recreational use permits are designed to
provide more revenue to landowners in the
WMA system. Money set aside by the FWC to
compensate those landowners for hunting use
on their lands was not sufficient to compete
with private hunting leases. Rather than have
WMAs drop out of the system, the FWC offers
recreational use permits. Fees collected from
these permits supplement the compensation
for private landowners, keeping their lands
open to public hunting.
Except for hunting, permit holders and
their spouses or dependent children may par-
ticipate in other activities on designated
WMAs. Only permit holders and one depend-
ent child (under age 16) may hunt. If spouses
or more than one dependent child (under age
16) wish to hunt, they must purchase a recre-
ational use permit. Recreational use permits
also include a management area permit when
hunting public lands not in the recreational


use program.
Recreational use permits do not apply to
other recreational use program areas. Once
permits are issued, they can be renewed annu-
ally for two additional years, essentially mak-
ing them a three-year permit. Permit renewals
are mailed May 1. Eligible applicants have
until May 31 to renew their recreational use
permits for the next season. Permits not
renewed by May 31 will be forfeited.
Permits are issued individually on a first-
come, first-served basis in June. Submit an
application at www.wildlifelicense.com or take
a completed worksheet to a tax collector's
office or any license agent. Worksheets are
available online at MyFWC.com, at FWC
regional offices and tax collectors' offices in
counties surrounding a specific WMA.

Newboating laws
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and other law enforcement agen-
cies are alerting Floridians of new laws and
enhancements to existing laws that deal with
boating under the influence, boating safety
education, waterway markers, possession of
gasoline on a vessel and destruction of coral.
The enhanced penalty for BUI is the same
as it is for driving under the influence. The
blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level of
0.20 that was a violation in the past has
changed to 0.15.
Beginning Jan. 1, any boater born on or
after Jan. 1, 1988, will be required to take an
approved boating safety course and possess an
FWC-issued boating safety identification card.
And if they purchase a boat they have 90 days
from to obtain a boating safety II) card.
Another prohibited activity is placement
and use of a waterway marker that does not
conform to the U.S. Aids to Navigation Systeml
nor have an FWC permit. It's also unlawlul for
boaters to moor to government placed water-
way markers or lawfully placed waterway
markers except in emergency situations or
with written consent of the marker's owner.
It is illegal to possess or operate a v \ssel
with nonconforming or unapproved gaslolirn
containers or to transport gasoline in an
unventilated.oi improperly ventilated commit , I
ment. Laws regarding tilling, nilxuimbrini, and
registration now apply to any vessel (op' i aid,
used or stored on state water: except el':

Teaching peaceful warriors


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader


Dan Kelly first learned about
Aikido in 1976 while reading a
magazine article describing the
relaxed and powerful move-
ments of the art, using words
such as peaceful, flowing and
harmony.
The Japanese word Ai-Ki-Do
.is written with three characters
that translate as "the way of
peace through the energy of
the universe."
Aikido was developed by
Morihei Ueshiba. An extraor-
dinary martial artist, he was a
master of the sword, staff, spear
and the art ofju-jitsu. O-Sensei
(great teacher) Ueshiba had a
strong religious and spiritual
drive, and Aikido is the combi-
nation of the O-Sensei's spiritu-
al foundation and his martial
prowess.
"I think simply by being a
non-aggressive martial art sets
Aikido apart from the others,"
said Kelly. "Aikido students are
taught to be concerned for the
well-being and safety of the
attacker, while still protecting
themselves."
Kelly began studying Aikido
in 1989 in Miami. After moving
to this area in 1991, he drove to
Orlando on weekends to study
with Sensei Ed Baker.
"I found it necessary to
start teaching Aikido to inter-
ested people, only so I could
have someone locally to work
out with," said Kelly. "My goal
never was to teach, but to
study."
When Baker passed away,
Kelly began studying at an


Unlike a boxer whose
aim is to knock out
the opponent, and
win,'the student of
Aikido is taught to
do no harm'to the
opponent, but rather
to subdue them with
the least pain and
most control possible.

Aikido dojo (school) in Orlando
named Shindai Dojo, under the
direction of Mitsugi Saotome
Shihan.
In his classes, the first thing
Kelly teaches students is how to
properly roll or fall in order to
protect themselves during train-
ing.
"Our movements must
blend and flow with the move-
ments of the attacker."
Many people feel thatAikido
is too soft and flowing, says
Kelly, and therefore they don't
feel it can really be effective,
but an elementary definition of
Aikido is turning the momen-
tum of the attack against the
attacker. For this reason, Aikido
is strictly defensive and non-
aggressive.
If one is familiar with the
graceful flowing movements of
Tai Chi, many of these same
movements are used in Aikido,
which could be described as
applied Tai Chi, noted Kelly.
While Tai Chi's movements
are focused inward and there


Aikido students have sometimes been described as
"Magicians of Movement," says Aikido Sensei Dan Kelly.
(facing), shown here with student Carl Middleton.


is no person-to-person contact,
Aikido is focused outward and
because it is defensive, there
will be contact with another per-
son.
Many of Aikido's hand
movements evolved from
Japanese sword techniques. By
learning these sword tech-
niques, students enhance their
understanding of the "empty
hand" movements.
The sword techniques are
taught using a wooden sword
(bokken) as well as a walking
-staff (jo) and a wooden knife
(tanto).
Kelly says there are an even


number of men and women in
his Aikido classes, which are
taught from 7-8:30 p.m. on
Tuesday and Thursdays at the
SMcArthur Family YMCA on
Citrona Drive.
Students range in age from
13 to over 60. Classes are free
with a YMCA membership.
Anyone interested in learn-
ing more about Aikido may
observe Kelly's class, free of
charge, to see if it is something
they would like to continue. For
additional information, contact
SKelly at 545-1560, or call the
YMCA at 261-1080.

Largest oak tree identified


But it's about to be pruned


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Just how big around, and how old is
the biggest live oak in Nassau County,
and where is it growing?
If you've ever asked yourself those
questions, they may have been
answered by Mike Manzie, the owner
of local surveying company Manzie &
Drake of Fernandina Beach.
Manzie, who recently sponsored a
"Largest Oak Tree in Nassau County"
contest, says he has indeed found the
largest live oak.
"The ones in the top 20 were amaz-
ingly big trees," says Manzie.
"I came from South Florida, where
we didn't have any oak trees, just plain
palm trees," says Manzie. "I wondered
where the biggest tree was (in the
county)."
The largest one he found is located
at 573 Marsh Hen-Lane, off Barnwell
Road in O'Neil. It measures 308.2 inch-
es (25.5 feet in circunilerence (around
the tree) and 98.1 inches (8 feet) in
diameter (from side to side).
But that remarkable tree's limbs
may be severely pruned within the


next few days to allow for a power lne.
Manzie says. While taking photos of
the oak - located in the county where
there is no tree ordinance protection -
Manzie says he was approached by a
neighbor who informed, him that
Florida Power & Light would be per-
forming major surgery on the limbs in
the next week or so.
Manzie says he found the massive
trees by putting ads for the contest in
various local publications, and by bring-
ing it up at local town hall meetings. He
ran the announcement for a couple of
months, he said, and took three full
Saturday driving around and taking
measurements.
"We got hundreds of calls," says
Manzie. "Judging by the response, ii
there was a bigger tree (than ,we
found), we'd have heard about it We
were hoping for community effort.
but we were flooded with calls."
"Everyone had a story about their
tree," he went on. "One woman said
Blackbeaid's; treasure was buried
under the tree."
This is Manzie's second "Largest

Rayonier ceebraes billionthtree

Rayonier celebrates billionth tree


RYAN SMITH
-: News-Leader


Rayonier Eastern Forest
Resources celebrated its billionth
tree planted in the Southeast during
a luncheon Thursday at the
Goffinsville-Nassau River Park.
The company planted a 25-foot
live oak on the waterfront, as well as
hardwood, longleaf and loblolly pines
throughout the park, located in
Nassauville.
Elected officials at the city, state
and county levels, along with about
100 guests, attended the luncheon.
Also present were executives and
retirees from Rayonier.
"Rayonier, in the three
Southeastern states - Florida,
Georgia and Alabama - has now
planted a billion trees," Eastern
Forest Resources Director Larry
Davis told the guests. "... Lay those
trees end to end - to the moon and
back 30 times."
Davis stressed the importance of
ayonier's long-standing relationship
with Nassau County.


"Nassau County is important to us
at Rayonier," he said. "Our first move
.into the Sohth, over 70 years ago,
was here. ... Our history is not only
long but fruitful together."
State Rep. Janet Adkins agreed.
"We have had three generations of
Nassau County residents call
Rayonier their place of employment,"
she said. "... Rayonier has been a
wonderful corporate citizen of this
community."
"People talk aboutthe Three P's'
- the public-private partnership - and
nowhere is that more evident than
'Nassau County's relationship with
Rayonier," said County
Commissioner Mike Boyle. "... We
are dependent on them just as they
have a stake in how Nassau County
does, and that relationship has never
been better than it is right now."
"(The billionth tree) stands for
our commitment to sustainable
forestry," said Lee .Thomas,
Rayonier's chairman, president and
CEO. "... It's also about the commit-

Police


try to cut


through


the noise

JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader
City Attorney Tammi Bach told
city commissioners last week that
police will step up efforts to confirm
the identity of those who make noise
complaints to avoid alleged "fictitious"
people making spurious reports. But
Police Chief Jim Hurley said anony-
mous complaints would not be over-
looked.
"An anonymous complaint, on
many levels, is still a valid compliant,"
Hurley said. "We'll
take an anonymous
compliant, go to the
place and verify it
ourselves. It's our
discretion to keep
those complaints
from getting put of
hand."
Some business Hurley
owners have sug-
gested that some
noise complaints are lodged by busi-
ness rivals, not necessarily residents
or visitors bothered by noise. They

newspaper


of lawsuit


News-Leader


City Attorney Tammi Bach warned
Thursday the News-Leader could be
sued if it published a story suggesting
that two city officials had violated
Florida's Sunshine Law by attending a
chamber of commerce meeting on the
noise ordinance.
The warning came a day after the
newspaper filed a routine public
records request asking if there had
been public notice that Mayor Susan
.Steger and Commissioner Tim
Poynter were to attend a meeting of
the chamber board of directors on
Nov. 12.
"If statements are
made that a violation
did occur, written or
verbal, without the
support of a legal
opinion in support of
a violation having
occurred, these
statements would be
defamatory and Bach
reckless," Bach
wrote in an unsolicited e-mail to the
newspaper's editor. "Defamitory and
reckless" are legal terms that are used
specifically to define libelous actions
by a publication.
The First Amendment to the U.S.
Constitution provides for freedom of
speech and has been interpreted to
prohibit government censorship of
the media except in exceptional cir-
cumstances such as war. The U.S.
Supreme Court has taken a dim view
of government efforts to prevent pub-
lication of newspaper stories through
the use of threats or intimidation.
However, federal law provides that
once publication occurs, those who
are libeled by defamatory statements
made without regard to the truth can
sue for monetary damages. The law
generally does not apply to public offi-
cials such as Steger and Poynter,
unless the defamatory statements are
unusually gross and reckless.
In any case, the News-Leader has

Holiday patrols increase


Since the Thanksgiving hol-
iday weekend typically pro-
duces a high volume of motor
vehicle traffic, the Florida
Highway Patrol will increase
its presence Wednesday
through Sunday. All sworn
FHP personnel, including
those typically assigned to
administrative duties, will
patrol Florida's high-volume
roadways during the five-day
period. Auxiliary and reserve
troopers will volunteer to aug-
ment the patrol.
Troopers will direct their
enforcement toward impaired
driving, speeding, following too
closely and aggressive driving
behavior. In addition, troopers
will strictly enforce safety belt.
and child restraint laws.


'The Florida Highway
Patrol is committed to making
Florida's highways safe," said
Lt. Bill Leeper. "We encourage
motorists to do their part by
complying with all traffic laws
and making sure everyone in
their vehicle is buckled up."
The Florida Highway Patrol
offers these safety tips:
* Get plenty of rest before
setting out on a long trip
* Observe and obey all
speed limits
* Allow plenty of time to
reach your destinations
* Drive sober only
* Buckle up!
* Eliminate distractions:
Texting, talking on the phone,
eating, adjusting the stereo.
.* Prepare your vehicle:


Check fluids for proper levels,
i.e., oil, gas and windshield
wipers, and ensure tires have
adequate pressure and are in
good condition.
FHP reminds motorists of
Florida's "Move Over Law."
The law requires drivers who
approach an emergency vehi-
cle or tow truck stopped road-
side with flashing lights to
change lanes away from the
emergency vehicles if able to
do so safely and if not, slow
down to 20 mph below the
speed limit.
Call *FHP (*347) to report
intoxicated or aggressive driv-
ers, or if your vehicle breaks
down and you need assistance.
For immediate emergency
services, dial 911.

According to Lt. Bill Leeper,
authorities are still investigating

EDITORIAL


Post office:


We agree with


city manager


more assertive, more assured and
more in command of his job at the
Nov. 17 city commission meeting
than at any other point in his career here.
That was impressive.
We also want to emphasize - stop the
presses - our support for the city manager,
who called for a "feasibility and cost analy-
sis and assessment of the proposed acquisi-
tion of the Centre Street post office."
SOur commissioners, and many in our
community, are leading with their hearts
and not their heads in this drive to save the
post office from further decline.
We agree the building is a landmark,
vital to downtown, and if it were lost it
1',uq.' ;' trag'c as deiiuliuorrol the his-
toric .KeystQne Hotel ........
That said, the central question is what
cost are we willing to pay to save a building
the federal government has shamefully neg-
lected. And how much of that burden is our
city commission willing to put on taxpayers?
Czymbor recommended to the commis-
sion in a Nov. 16 memo that the city under-
take "due diligence" of the building's condi-
tion before it agrees to purchase it. An
engineering firm already has tested for
lead-based paint and mold, which will hve to
be remedied. City staff reviewed the build-
ing's electrical, mechanical, plumbing and
structural details, and improvements will be
necessary.
Czymbor also recommends - and we
agree - that the city hire a "qualified archi-
tectural/engineering design firm to provide
a detailed cost" to stabilize the structure,
restore the building and adapt it for use as
City Hall or another purpose.
The city manager also directed his staff
to analyze "all projected costs for the next
10 years, including the maintenance,
upkeep, necessary rehabilitation and
upgrading of all facilities" now used by the
city to determine how much can be saved
by consolidating offices in the post office
building.
He has asked city and community repre-
sentatives to examine potential external
funding sources for grants to help pay for
rehabilitation of the post office building.
These are appropriate steps before the
bottom line is signed. We'd recommend one
more: Hire a consultant to determine how
much it will cost to maintain and renovate
the building for the next 100 years - the
length of a proposed lease with the post
office that would allow it to continue to use
the ground floor of the building.
We're confident the city can secure fed-
eral or other grant funding to pay for
restoration of the building, but that's not the
half of it. The larger costs come, as anyone
who owns an old or historic structure
knows, from the repeated repairs and reno-
vations that never seem to end.
The city also will be obliged to pay for
the post office to relocate during the reno-
vation. How much will that cost?
This may be the deal of the century for
the city of Fernandina Beach. But we're
making a commitment for a century's worth
of expenses. The city manager is absolutely
correct to steer the commission into consid-
ering all of the consequences.
We appreciate a city with heart. We
appreciate even more a city with brains.

House, making it a private resi-
dence. The financial difficulties of
the Florida House Inn have been
previously covered in the News-
Leader. When Nancy and I sold the
Williams Hotiusd,,-aost apiproki-
mately $500,000 of our own money
trying to pay exorbitant taxes and
insurance increases.
The bed and breakfasts helped
bring the Historic District and
Centre Street back to life in the early
1990s, only to face huge tax and
wind insurance increases.
As a realtor, I sell the ambiance
and lifestyle of Amelia Island every
day. Quaint shops, fabulous restau-
rants and bed and breakfasts are
things that define and bring life to
the island. After the tax increases
assured we would go out of busi-
ness, four B&B's hired an attorney
to take our case to the city and coun-
ty. I was asked by one of the com-
missioners if I thought I had made
a bad business decision.
The city'streets used to be
packed when the annual bed and
breakfast tour was held. This was
part of Amelia Island tradition. It
appears there will be virtually no
public access this year to the B&Bs.
Only because they are being forced
out of business.

Traffic speeds
As a longtime driver of Florida
roads, I cannot believe anyone
would complain about someone
wanting to pass them, regardless of
the speed they were driving. As far
as staying in the left lane at the
speed limit, no one can justify that
when Florida law says "slower traf-
fic keep right" That law does not ref-
erence speed, but tells everyone to
move over to the right lane if some-
one is trying to pass you or is going
faster than you, regardless of the
proximity to the speed limit. You do
not own the left lane or the right
lane, but slower drivers, regardless
of the speed, should stay in the right
lane so those faster drivers can pass
without causing fear or other nega-
tive sentiment in more drivers. That
was a courtesy back in the old days
when drivers had some considera-
tion for other drivers. If you don't
like someone speeding, report them.
And by the way, it is not illegal to
pass on the right side.
If you drive in the left lane
because of the drivers turning off of
and returning to the main road, then
change lanes, if possible, prior to
having to slow down. However,
please use your turn signal as
required by law, even if the turning
driver doesn't use theirs. It's a
shame to have to slow down and
speed up while driving, but it's a lot
easier if you don't use your cell
phone or put on your makeup while
driving. It is also part of the science
of good driving to do this while caus-
ing minimum disturbance for others.
But you do have to care about oth-


6 * * .&


ers, and that seems to be the prob-
lem today.
Also, don't ride the rear bumper
of the driver in front of you. All that
does is irritate anyone with a desire
for a safety margin in case of an acci-
dent ahead. A lot of stupid, incon,
siderate drivers jerk around and pull
in front or behind with minimum
clearance just to get ahead of others.
Get their license number and report
them for careless and reckless driv-
ing. They probably won't be stopped
that day, but the sheriff's deputies
will have a driver to watch for, and
they do need to write more tickets,
you see.
In closing, please be more con-
siderate of others, and make the
speeders go faster in the left lane.
That way, the police can see them
better from the opposite side. Drive
carefully and considerately, please.
Especially when I'm on the road.

Rules of the road
In reference to the "Driving us
crazy" letter on Nov. 20: The out-
side lane is a passing lane, mean-
ing it is for passing only, not to be
settled into for the duration of your
journey. He inay be keeping a fam-
ily member away from an emer-
gency at home or elsewhere. I can
imagine that these self-appointed
traffic cops are very frustrating to be
behind and I can see where it could
spark a bit of road rage in some peo-
ple. I travel off the island on my way
to work and lately I've found that
the most irritating part of my jour-
ney is some woman in a trance, talk-
ing on her cell phone, oblivious to all
that is going on around her. This
may sound sexist but it is my truth-
ful observation.

Powerful
About 1:06 a.m. this morning our
two clock radios turned on by them-
selves. Neither was set on. They just
came on. We thought this was
strange but who knows? We have
since learned from friends that this


phenomena happened to more than
a few people we know too. Does any-
one know what caused this strange
happening? Sunspots, flying saucers,
log trucks on Eighth Street or per-
haps terrorists ("Wreck snarls rou-
tines," Nov. 20)?

Bemused
I have rarely read a more thinly
veiled begging letter than that pro-
duced by your columnist Ryan
Smith under the title of "Newsroom
Views" (Nov. 20). My heart would
go out to him along with a few of my
unwanted possessions were I not
aware that his sorry tale was.written
with the assurance of a man with a
full stomach and a regular monthly
paycheck.
You will detect from my spelling
that I am a visitor to your sunny
shores and as a regular traveler of
the world I am keenly aware of the
impoverishment of others, not least
a broad swathe of residents of this
wonderful country. Sad then that,
instead of using his column to invite
the beneficence of a captive audi-
ence'to benefit his more needy fel-
low countrymen/women, he uses,
or rather abuses, it to enrich his
own lifestyle.
Perhaps when his inevitable
flood of offers comes in and is deliv-
ered to his door he will leave a tin
cup outside to invite more flexible
donations.
I have to say that this type of
barefaced entrepreneurialism is
badly misplaced especially as, by its
inclusion in "the Leader," it appears
to be endorsed by his employer.

Keepright
Re: The letter "Driving us crazy,"
Nov. 18.
I have a very strong dislike for
the letter writer's callous, unsports-
manlike sense of operating a motor
vehicle in regard to left lane usage.
He used "idiots" in his letter. I will
refrain from similar usage. I enjoy
driving, and drivers that block in


the left lane are a very real antago-
nist without cause. You, sir, and
those of the same ilk as you, are
simply gaming the courtesy rules of
the road. The rules clearly state,
"Keep right except to pass and slow-
er traffic keep right." In short, either
lead, follow or get the hell out of
the way. This works for driving,
walking or any public situation.
Ralph Stangel
Fernandina Beach

Move over
The gentleman who recently
wrote a letter saying that he has a
right to drive the speed limit in the
left hand lane any time he wishes
should read the latest news on that
matter.
A year or so ago in a bill aimed
at reducing the incidence of road
rage and aggressive driving on the
state's multiple-lane highways, the
legislature amended the law to read
that a person may drive in the left-
hand lane if that person is driving
the posted speed limit and not
blocking the flow of traffic in that
lane. Therefore, the inverse is true.
You may not drive the speed limit in
the left lane if drivers behind you
wish to drive faster unless switching
to the right lane would pose a haz-
ard or unless you are passing slow-
er vehicles to your right. After that,
if you're blocking faster drivers
behind you, you have an obligation
to yield and let them pass. It is not
up to any driver to be the con-
science of the road, nor to inten-
tionally become a rolling roadblock
just because one feels like doing
so. Such actions only serve to annoy
and further aggravate other driv-
ers.
Bottom line - if the guy coming
up behind you wants to drive 80
mph, it isn't your place to try to stop
him. That's a function of law enfor-
cement. If that's what you wish to
do, fine. Become a police officer
and have at it. Bear in mind, when
you elect to homestead the left lane
and block those who wish to pass
you, you are also violating the law.
You can't have it both ways.

I Snakes alive!


It all starts with a piece of bread
- only good bread, though, not the
cheap stuff. Those bream seem to
know the difference, or so Jim
Kemp tells me.
Jim was determined to show
me the wildlife in his backyard,
and bread was only the start. First
he took a tiny glob of bread, rolled
it into a ball and put it on his fish-
hook. A quick cast of the line, a
moment of stillness, a brief strug-
gle and then a bream fish was
hooked. Jim carefully removed the
hook from this tasty pan-sized fish,
and I asked him, "Are you gonna
eat him?"
"I never eat my friends," Jim
replied, and then tossed the fish
over to his better friend, I guess,
Bob the bass. Bob was waiting
there, all four pounds of him, visi-
ble in the shadows. At the plop of
the bream on the water, Bob struck
into action. A brief snap, the water
roiled, then was still again.
The next bream Jim caught
moments later was even larger, too
big, even I could see, for old Bpb.
No problem, this fish was tossed
further into the lake, causing an
even bigger snap aand splash.
Bob's friends, bass that Jim says
are maybe as much as 12 pounds
in size, big 'ones, had been wait-
ing in deeper water for their own
feast. "
Noting the disturbance, Bird-
ley, the great egret, flew into the
yard and stood on the grass behind
us. Bream are too big for Birdley's
skinny neck, but no problem. Jim
had some other small fish, newly
caught, waiting in his bait bucket
and tossed one towards him.
Birdley swallowed his fish, and
eying me, the stranger, with dis-
trust, edged ever closer to Jim and
the action.
This was all just the warmup

act. What I real-
ly wanted to see
were the
snakes. I've
heard about Jim
and his "snake
act" and I was
determined to
see it myself.
Jim, I've been
told, has trained
the large black
water snakes
that live in his
lake. "Right," I
thought, 'this I
have to see to


It took awhile for the snakes to
show up. Like Birdley and the
dozen or so pond turtles also lurk-
ing nearby, they were unsure about
me, the stranger in their midst.
But eventually the pull of free fish
overcame the fear of the unknown.
Zachariah, a small brown water
snake with the fearlessness of a
teenager, came sidling up to the
shoreline.
"Hand me my stick." Jim said,
and I complied. With a bream in
one hand, and the stick in another,
Jimnlured Zach in. The snake fol-
lowed the tip of the stick and slith-
ered to shore and right up to Jim's
feet and his waiting hand full of a
nice tasty live-bream. Zach the
snake quickly grabbed the fish and
slid off. A few minutes later, he
was back, and-again Jim lured him
in with the stick and fed him anoth-
er.
This particular afternoon I did-
n't see the other black water
snakes, the big guys, that also
sometimes show tp for their
evening feeds, but Jim showed me
photos. These snakes all have
names, and personalities. "Pop-
eye," for instance,'has an injured


eye. "Mode the Magnificent" is
about three feet long and as thick
as a man's wrist. In all there are 10
black snakes Jim knows. And some
of them are tame enough, now,
that he picks them up and handles
them. The photos are there as
proof. Amazing.
Many people are afraid of
snakes, but mostly without reason.
These big black water snakes
(Nerodia fasciata pictiventris) are
non-venomous - not dangerous
like the water moccasins they
resemble. With repetition, a good
knowledge of B.J. Skinner's rules
of operant conditioning and an
open mind toward nature, Jim has
befriended them, and, yes, I've
gotta say, trained them to come
when he wiggles that stick.
These same snakes, and
Birdley, and the bass and the pond
turtles keep Jim company when
he sits in his backyard with a piece
of bread and a hook and line. Jim
and his friends have been per-
forming in his backyard for a cou-
ple of years now. During the cold
months of winter the snakes dis-
appear, but in spring they are back,
right at their. feeding station. In
late winter Birdley, the egret, flies
off too, most likely further south to
a rookery. When Birdley returns in
a couple of months his bill is still
bright green and his feathers are
plumed in breeding mode after his
reproductive trip south.
It's not everyone who wants to
hand-feed wild snakes, but Jim has
proven to me that it's possible. And
now I'm "hooked" too. Next time I
can, I'm going back to see the big
guys. Seeing is believing, it's true.
And now, I'm a believer!

Largest oak tree identified


But it's about to be pruned 3


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
Just how big around, and how old is
the biggest live oak in Nassau County,
and where is it growing?
If you've ever asked yourself those
questions, they may have been
answered by Mike Manzie, the owner
of local surveying company Manzie &
Drake of Fernandina Beach.
Manzie, who recently sponsored a
"Largest Oak Tree in Nassau County"
contest, says he has indeed found the
largest live oak.
"The ones in the top 20 were amaz-
ingly big trees," says Manzie.
"I came from South Florida, where
we didn't have any oak trees, just plain
palm trees," says Manzie. "I wondered
where the biggest tree was (in the
county)."
The largest one he found is located
at 573 Marsh Hen Lane, off Barnwell
Road in O'Neil. It measures 308.2 inch-
es (25.5 feet) in circumference (around
the tree) and 98.1 inches (8 feet) in
diameter (from side to side).
But that remarkable tree's limbs
may be severely pruned within the


next few days to allow for a power line,
Manzie says. While taking photos of
the oak - located in the county where
there is no tree ordinance protection -
Manzie says he was approached by a
neighbor who informed him that
Florida Power & Light would be per-
forming major surgery on the limbs in
the next week or so.
Manzie says he found the massive
trees by putting ads for the contest in
various local publications, and by bring-
ing it up at local town hall meetings. He
ran the announcement for a couple of
months, he said, and took three full
Saturday driving around and taking
measurements.
"We got hundreds of calls," says
Manzie. "Judging by the response, if
there was a bigger tree (than we
found), we'd have heard about it. We
were hoping for a community effort,
but we were flooded with calls."
"Everyone had a story about their
tree," he went on. "One woman said
Blackbeard's treasure was buried
under the tree."
This is Manzie's second "Largest

Rayonier celebrates billionth tree


Sw RYAN SMITH
News Leader


Rayonier Eastern Forest
Resources celebrated its billionth
tree planted in the Southeast during
a luncheon Thursday at the
Goffinsville-Nassau River Park.
The company planted a 25-foot
live oak on the waterfront, as well as
hardwood, longleaf and loblolly pines
throughout the park, located in
Nassauville.
Elected officials at the city, state
and county levels, along with about
100 guests, attended the luncheon.
Also present were executives and
retirees from Rayonier.
"Rayonier, in the three
Southeastern states - Florida,
Georgia and Alabama - has now
planted a billion trees," Eastern
Forest Resources Director Larry
Davis told the guests. "... Lay those
trees end to end - to the moon and
back 30 times."
Davis stressed the importance of
Rayonier's long-standing relationship
with Nassau County.


"Nassau County is important to us
at Rayonier," he said. "Our first move
into the South, over 70 years ago,
was here. ... Our history is not only
long but fruitful together."
State Rep. Janet Adkins agreed.
"We have had three generations of
Nassau County residents call
Rayonier their place of employment,"
she said. "... Rayonier has been a
wonderful corporate citizen of this
community."
"People talk about the 'Three P's'
- the public-private partnership - and
nowhere is that more evident than
Nassau County's relationship with
Rayonier," said County
Commissioner Mike Boyle. "... We
are dependent on them just as they
have a stake in how Nassau County
does, and that relationship has never
been better than it is right now."
"(The billionth tree) stands for
our commitment to sustainable
forestry," said Lee Thomas,
Rayonier's chairman, president and
CEO. "... It's also about the commit-

Police


try to cut


through


the noise

JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
City Attorney Tammi Bach told
city commissioners last week that
police will step up efforts to confirm
the identity of those who make noise
complaints to avoid alleged "fictitious"
people making spurious reports. But
Police Chief Jim Hurley said anony-
mous complaints would not be over-
looked.
"An anonymous complaint, on
many levels, is still a valid compliant,"
Hurley said. "We'll
take an anonymous
compliant, go to the
place and verify it
ourselves. It's our
discretion to keep
those complaints
from getting out of
hand."
Some business Hurley
owners have sug-
gested that some
noise complaints are lodged by busi-
ness rivals, not necessarily residents
or visitors bothered by noise. They
contend the noise law needs to be

newspaper


of lawsuit


News-Leader


City Attorney Tammi Bach warned
Thursday the News-Leader could be
sued if it published a story suggesting
that two city officials had violated
Florida's Sunshine Law by attending a
chamber of commerce meeting on the
noise ordinance.
The warning came a day after the
newspaper filed a routine public
records request asking if there had
been public notice that Mayor Susan
Steger and Commissioner Tim
Poynter were to attend a meeting of
the chamber board of directors on
Nov. 12.
"If statements are
made that a violation
did occur, written or
verbal, without the
support of a legal
opinion in support of
a violation having
occurred, these
statements would be
defamatory and Bach
reckless," Bach
wrote in an unsolicited e-mail to the
newspaper's editor. "Defamatory and
reckless" are legal terms that are used
specifically to define libelous actions
by a publication.
The First Amendment to the U.S.
Constitution provides for freedom of
speech and has been interpreted to
prohibit government censorship of
the media except in exceptional cir-
cumstances such as war. The U.S.
Supreme Court has taken a dim view
of government efforts to prevent pub-
lication of newspaper stories through
the use of threats or intimidation.
However, federal law provides that
once publication occurs, those who
are libeled by defamatory statements
made without regard to the truth can
sue for monetary damages. The law
generally does not apply to public offi-
cials such as Steger and Poynter,
unless the defamatory statements are
unusually gross and reckless.
In any case, the News-Leader has

NOISE Continued from LA
revised to address that.
Hurley said the ordinance
is "perfectly appropriate" as
written, but it is incumbent on
those bothered by the noise to
stand up, give their informa-
tion and testify to their com-
plaint alongside officers who
go to the scene and verify that
the complaint is legitimate.
He said police would request
that complainants, at the point
of contact, be listed as wit-
nesses.
"We're trying to enforce
the ordinance while striking
some balance," he said. "I'm
going to see that officers take
into account the number of
complaints received, docu-
ment any witnesses for any
proceedings that result and
redact complainants that use
this for their own devices. One
bar complaining about anoth-
er is not going to happen any-
more."
But Hurley said he dis-
agrees with the characteriza-
tion that there is a rash of ille-
gitimate complaints. He said
recent letters to the editor of
the News-Leader that criticized
the handling of noise com-
plaints by city police during
Florida-Georgia weekend
were inaccurate.
"The officers were very
tactful," he said. "They were
doing their job as proscribed
by the ordinance. The letters
to the editor were inflamma-
tory and inaccurate - that's a
problem."
Commissioner Jeffrey
Bunch, telling the commis-
sion he had spoken to police,
bar employees and bar cus-
tomers who witnessed the
incidents, said the letter writ-
ers were inaccurate.
Furthermore, Hurley said,
there was only one incident
that he was aware of that
involved a complaint he
wouldn't deem legitimate,
while the others were legiti-
mate as verified by officers
who assessed the situation
firsthand. But he said those
taking advantage of the
enforcement strategy for their
own aims tie up resources.
"You get into a situation
where, the more people know
what the strategy is, the more
they try to circumvent it," he
said. "We try to look for com-
promise but there are other
things we could be doing."
But he said, essentially, the
ordinance is cut and dry.
"Everybody tries to throw
layers of confusion into the
mix," he said. "It is a simple
issue; a test of reasonableness:
Are you violating someone's
right to sleep at an hour they
expect some quiet? People are
very conscious it's a down-
town area, and there is no neg-
ativity until after 11 p.m. Most
people are tolerant until after

12, 1 or 2 a.m."
Hurley would not discuss
specific establishments, but
generalized why some are
more prone to complaints.
"If there's no action you
can take to fix the problem,
then that's a problem itself,"
he said. "Mitigation is closing
a door on a loud establish-
ment. If your business has out-
side patrons and you can't con-
trol the noise, that's a problem
and it's hard to reconcile that."
For example, Commission-
er Tim Poynter has noted The
Palace Saloon can close its
doors and restrain noise, but
The Green Turtle Tavern has
an open porch that allows
noise to escape next door to
The Florida House Inn, where
visitors may be trying to sleep.
There is also discretion on
the part of officers, Hurley
said, to enforce the 25-foot
rule. He said the 25-foot limit
for noise is a starting point
and officers are allowed to
make up their own minds as
to whether audible sounds
constitute a violation. He said
in most cases the noise that
garners warnings - and sub-
sequently fines - is clearly
audible from a much greater
distance, often 75-100 feet.
Hurley compared noise
enforcement with that of
speeding.
"There is a range of dis-
cretion," he said. "If somebody
is going 52 mph where the
speed limit is 50 and they get
pulled over for speeding, they
might get a verbal warning
and people are generally OK
with that. But if someone is
going 62 in a 50 mph zone,
most people would agree it's
speeding and a ticket would
be appropriate. We're looking
for compliance; we'd prefer
that people don't speed so
we'd never have to write a tick-
et, but that's not a reality."
Compromise is key,
Hurley said, but sometimes
it's nearly impossible given
the varying businesses, resi-
dents and guests downtown.
"My ambition is to provide
an enforcement strategy that
is compatible with our prac-
tice of compromise," he said.
'Trying to do the will of the
commission while dealing
with all sides of the issue is
not easy to do. Sometimes you
just have incompatible neigh-
bors whose business practices
differ.... When you have com-
peting interests occupying the

WEDNESDAY, November 25,2009 NEWS News-Leader


I am 120 percent in favor of complete
and utter transparency. I do believe
everything should be out in the open.'
COMMISSIONER TIM POYNTER


CITY Continued from 1A
not reported that public offi-
cials have violated Florida's
Sunshine Law unless they
were found by a court of law to
have done so. The newspaper
is unaware of allegations that
Steger or Poynter broke the
law.
Steger could not be
reached for comment. But
according to Poynter, the two
officials bent over backwards
to avoid any appearance of vio-
lating Sunshine Law at the
chamber meeting.
"We went over and spoke to
about 15 people at the board
meeting," he said, but the two
commissioners spoke sepa-
rately and did not appear toget-
her in the room as each spoke.
That may not have been
necessary under state law,
Poynter said, but added, "We
don't want to have what might
look like a (Sunshine) issue."
Police Chief Jim Hurley
also spoke to the chamber
board, which had requested
the meeting to discuss a
revised noise law that has been
controversial.
"I am 120 percent in favor of
complete and utter trans-
parency," Poynter said. He
acknowledged that Sunshine
Law can sometimes be awk-
ward and inhibit efficiency, but
said, "I am certainly to live with
that. I do believe everything
should be out in the open."
The News-Leader learned
about the meeting when City
Manager Michael Czymbor
mentioned it during a city com-
mission meeting Nov. 17. The
city's action report on the
meeting the next day con-
firmed that both Steger and
Poynter had attended it.
The newspaper submitted
by e-mail a public records
request to City Clerk Mary
Mercer, which stated: "I noted
this entry under city manag-
er's comments on the Nov. 17
commission meeting minutes:
"'NOISE ORDINANCE:
City Manager Czymbor
explained the Mayor, Commis-
sioner Poynter, the Police
Chief, and he met with the
Chamber of Commerce last
week to talk about some mis-
conceptions as well as provide
some clarification about the
Noise Ordinance (i.e., how it is


enforced, what it means, and
what the City was doing).'
"Please send me a copy of
the public notice that was dis-
tributed about this meeting of
two commissioners. The News-
Leader did not receive such a
notice, and would have appre-
ciated an opportunity to attend.
Thank you."
Nassau County govern-
ment routinely sends a public
notice whenever two or more
commissioners might attend
the same function. For exam-
ple, such a notice was sent
before the Thursday ceremony
where Rayonier celebrated the
planting of its billionth tree at
Goffinsville Park in Nassau-
ville.
Mercer replied to the News-
Leader by e-mail Thursday and
said there had been no such
public notice. She subse-
quently sent by e-mail infor-
mation from the state
Sunshine manual explaining
the law that covers when one
or more commissioners meet.
Five minutes later, at 2:37
p.m. Thursday, Bach sent her
e-mail warning of possible
legal action. She also wrote,
1::, ki .:, Peterson, Sunshine
Law expert, is aware of this
meeting and agrees with me
that no Sunshine Law violation
occurred."
Peterson, president of the
First Amendment Foundation,
could not be reached for com-
ment, but she customarily
reminds reporters that she
cannot stipulate whether or
not a Sunshine Law violation
occurred; only a court can rule
on that.


OAK Continued from 1A
Live Oak" contest. The first was
held in 2002 with help from the
local Sierra Club. At that time,
he says, the largest tree on the
Amelia Island was on South
11th Street.
This time, the largest Amelia
Island tree measured at 270.5
inches in circumference and
86.1 inches in diameter, and is
located on Bluff Road next to
Curtiss Lasserre's house in
Amelia City. That tree, said
Manzie, was also the most
attractive one.
Manzie says he believes the
biggest trees, estimated to be
250 to 300 years old, are too old
to have been deliberately plant-
ed for shade. He also says peo-
ple may have adapted to trees
that were already here, build-
ing homes and farms around
them.
The heaviest concentration
of live oaks, Manzie said, seems
to be on the island, because
many of the trees located fur-
ther out in the county may have
been used for timber and ship-
building.
"They didn't take them down
on the island as much as in the
county," said Manzie. Today,
the county still does not have a
tree ordinance, while trees are
protected in Fernandina Beach.
The city also financed an "urban
forestry" survey last summer,
which was conducted in con-
junction with an Urban Com-
munity Forestry grant from the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer services.
The project provided pertinent
data on the city's estimated
7,000 publicly owned trees.
Manzie says he used a new
method, which he found on the
Internet, to measure the trees
for this contest. Because many
of the trunks are irregular in
shape, a measurement was
taken around each tree at 4 1/2
feet from the ground, then

diameter.
"This way, the measure-
ments were a little more accu-
rate," he says. Still, he says he
would get five different results
measuring the same tree five
times, but he averaged out the
measurements for one figure.
In all, Manzie recorded the
measurements of 51 oak trees
county-wide, with the smallest
tree being located on Comman-
chee Road south of Callahan
and measuring 45.5 inches
(about 3.8 feet) in diameter.
Manzie has written an e-mail
to county commissioners asking
that the power lines on Marsh
Hen Road be re-routed under-
ground, so the largest live oak
in Nassau County will not be
damaged.
"Quite simply, this type of
destruction is not necessary
and should not be allowed,"
Manzie wrote to county com-
missioners in a mid-November
e-mail.
A proposed county tree ordi-
nance was voted down in early
2008. The unincorporated sec-
tion of Amelia Island like the
city has protection for its trees.

Home sales increase in October


The Northeast Florida
Association of Realtors
(NEFAR) announced that
home sales in the Jacksonville
area for October continued on
an upward track.
Closed sales were 1,303 - a
27.1 percent increase from the
1,025 in October 2008.
Pending sales spiked up dra-
matically, with a 78.8 percent
increase over October 2008.
Pending sales during the past
few months have continued to


increase, without doubt an
indicator that first-time home-
buyers were taking advan-
tage of the $8,000 federal tax
credit.
Sales prices are much lower
than last year's levels. The aver-
age sales price during October
was $179,205, a 16.8 percent
decrease from the $215,516
average in October 2008.
These figures, along with
many others, are included in

Teaching peaceful warriors


HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader


Dan Kelly first learned about
Aikido in 1976 while reading a
magazine article describing the
relaxed and powerful move-
ments of the art, using words
such as peaceful, flowing and
harmony.
The Japanese word Ai-Ki-Do
is written with three characters
that translate as "the way of
peace through the energy of
the universe."
Aikido was developed by
Morihei Ueshiba. An extraor-
dinary martial artist, he was a
master of the sword, staff, spear
and the art of ju-jitsu. O-Sensei
(great teacher) Ueshiba had a
strong religious and spiritual
drive, and Aikido is the combi-
nation of the O-Sensei's spiritu-
al foundation and his martial
prowess.
"I think simply by being a
non-aggressive martial art sets
Aikido apart from the others,"
said Kelly. "Aikido students are
taught to be concerned for the
well-being and safety of the
attacker, while still protecting
themselves."
Kelly began studying Aikido
in 1989 in Miami. After moving
to this area in 1991, he drove to
Orlando on weekends to study
with Sensei Ed Baker.
"I found it necessary to
start teaching Aikido to inter-
ested people, only so I could
have someone locally to work
out with," said Kelly. "My goal
never was to teach, but to
study."
When Baker passed away,
Kelly began studying at an


Unlike a boxer whose
aim is to knock out
the opponent, and
win,'the student of
Aikido is taught to
do no harm'to the
opponent, but rather
to subdue them with
the least pain and
most control possible.

Aikido dojo (school) in Orlando
named Shindai Dojo, under the
direction of Mitsugi Saotome
Shihan.
In his classes, the first thing
Kelly teaches students is how to
properly roll or fall in order to
protect themselves during train-
ing.
"Our movements must
blend and flow with the move-
ments of the attacker."
Many people feel that Aikido
is too soft and flowing, says
Kelly, and therefore they don't
feel it can really be effective,
but an elementary definition of
Aikido is turning the momen-
tum of the attack against the
attacker. For this reason, Aikido
is strictly defensive and non-
aggressive.
If one is familiar with the
graceful flowing movements of
Tai Chi, many of these same
movements are used in Aikido,
which could be described as
applied Tai Chi, noted Kelly.
While Tai Chi's movements
are focused inward and there

(facing), shown here with student Carl Middleton.


is no person-to-person contact,
Aikido is focused outward and
because it is defensive, there
will be contact with another per-
son.
Many of Aikido's hand
movements evolved from
Japanese sword techniques. By
learning these sword tech-
niques, students enhance their
understanding of the "empty
hand" movements.
The sword techniques are
taught using a wooden sword
(bokken) as well as a walking
staff (jo) and a wooden knife
(tanto).
Kelly says there are an even


number of men and women in
his Aikido classes, which are
taught from 7-8:30 p.m. on
Tuesday and Thursdays at the
McArthur Family YMCA on
Citrona Drive.
Students range in age from
13 to over 60. Classes are free
with a YMCA membership.
Anyone interested in learn-
ing more about Aikido may
observe Kelly's class, free of
charge, to see if it is something
they would like to continue. For
additional information, contact
Kelly at 545-1560, or call the
YMCA at 261-1080.

Holiday patrols increase


Since the Thanksgiving hol-
iday weekend typically pro-
duces a high volume of motor
vehicle traffic, the Florida
Highway Patrol will increase
its presence Wednesday
through Sunday. All sworn
FHP personnel, including
those typically assigned to
administrative duties, will
patrol Florida's high-volume
roadways during the five-day
period. Auxiliary and reserve
troopers will volunteer to aug-
ment the patrol.
Troopers will direct their
enforcement toward impaired
driving, speeding, following too
closely and aggressive driving
behavior. In addition, troopers
will strictly enforce safety belt
and child restraint laws.


"The Florida Highway
Patrol is committed to making
Florida's highways safe," said
Lt. Bill Leeper. "We encourage
motorists to do their part by
complying with all traffic laws
and making sure everyone in
their vehicle is buckled up."
The Florida Highway Patrol
offers these safety tips:
* Get plenty of rest before
setting out on a long trip
* Observe and obey all
speed limits
* Allow plenty of time to
reach your destinations
* Drive sober only
* Buckle up!
* Eliminate distractions:
Texting, talking on the phone,
eating, adjusting the stereo.
* Prepare your vehicle:


Check fluids for proper levels,
i.e., oil, gas and windshield
wipers, and ensure tires have
adequate pressure and are in
good condition.
FHP reminds motorists of
Florida's "Move Over Law."
The law requires drivers who
approach an emergency vehi-
cle or tow truck stopped road-
side with flashing lights to
change lanes away from the
emergency vehicles if able to
do so safely and if not, slow
down to 20 mph below the
speed limit.
Call *FHP (*347) to report
intoxicated or aggressive driv-
ers, or if your vehicle breaks
down and you need assistance.
For immediate emergency
services, dial 911.

Wreck kills Jacksonville man


JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
A Jacksonville man died
early Sunday morning after the
car he was driving collided
head-on with a semi truck on
US 90 in Nassau County.
According to a Florida
Highway Patrol media release,
Andrew J. Prater, 24, of
Jacksonville died at the scene of
the accident after his 1999

Dodge Durango crossed the
center line from the eastbound

According to Lt. Bill Leeper,
authorities are still investigating
why Prater crossed the line and
collided with the 1996
Kenworth truck driven by Roel
Jimenez, 29, of Edinburg,
Texas. Jimenez was taken to

the release stated.
Prater's vehicle was a total
loss while the truck driven by
Jimenez had about $50,000
damage, according to the
release. Both drivers were
wearing their seatbelts, but an
investigation is pending as to
whether Prater's actions were
alcohol-related, Leeper said.




Tobacco bust

at Yulee High
Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies were in the parking
lot Tuesday looking for drugs
and tobacco products at Yulee
High School.
Four K-9 units and two
school resource officers assist-
ed. The dogs sniffed around 61
vehicles for drugs. Deputies
looked for tobacco products
that were in plain view. The area
search was conducted in the
parking lot with approximately
115 automobiles.
Dogs alerted on the odor of
narcotics on four vehicles.
Deputies searched those cars,
but did not find anything. They
saw tobacco products in 13 vehi-
cles.
They issued civil citations to
three students for possessing
cigarettes and chewing tobacco.
The students will have to make
a mandatory court appearance
with a parent, pay a $40 fine and
take a one-week tobacco aware-
ness course.
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
and school officials authorized
the search because of com-
plaints from residents about
drug and tobacco use in school
parking lots.

EDITORIAL


Post office:


We agree with


city manager


more assertive, more assured and
more in command of his job at the
Nov. 17 city commission meeting
than at any other point in his career here.
That was impressive.
We also want to emphasize - stop the
presses - our support for the city manager,
who called for a "feasibility and cost analy-
sis and assessment of the proposed acquisi-
tion of the Centre Street post office."
Our commissioners, and many in our
community, are leading with their hearts
and not their heads in this drive to save the
post office from further decline.
We agree the building is a landmark,
vital to downtown, and if it were lost it
would be as tragic as demolition of the his-
toric Keystone Hotel.
That said, the central question is what
cost are we willing to pay to save a building
the federal government has shamefully neg-
lected. And how much of that burden is our
city commission willing to put on taxpayers?
Czymbor recommended to the commis-
sion in a Nov. 16 memo that the city under-
take "due diligence" of the building's condi-
tion before it agrees to purchase it. An
engineering firm already has tested for
lead-based paint and mold, which will hve to
be remedied. City staff reviewed the build-
ing's electrical, mechanical, plumbing and
structural details, and improvements will be
necessary.
Czymbor also recommends - and we
agree - that the city hire a "qualified archi-
tectural/engineering design firm to provide
a detailed cost" to stabilize the structure,
restore the building and adapt it for use as
City Hall or another purpose.
The city manager also directed his staff
to analyze "all projected costs for the next
10 years, including the maintenance,
upkeep, necessary rehabilitation and
upgrading of all facilities" now used by the
city to determine how much can be saved
by consolidating offices in the post office
building.
He has asked city and community repre-
sentatives to examine potential external
funding sources for grants to help pay for
rehabilitation of the post office building.
These are appropriate steps before the
bottom line is signed. We'd recommend one
more: Hire a consultant to determine how
much it will cost to maintain and renovate
the building for the next 100 years - the
length of a proposed lease with the post
office that would allow it to continue to use
the ground floor of the building.
We're confident the city can secure fed-
eral or other grant funding to pay for
restoration of the building, but that's not the
half of it. The larger costs come, as anyone
who owns an old or historic structure
knows, from the repeated repairs and reno-
vations that never seem to end.
The city also will be obliged to pay for
the post office to relocate during the reno-
vation. How much will that cost?
This may be the deal of the century for
the city of Fernandina Beach. But we're
making a commitment for a century's worth
of expenses. The city manager is absolutely
correct to steer the commission into consid-
ering all of the consequences.
We appreciate a city with heart. We
appreciate even more a city with brains.

Americans are going


The number of American households
who couldn't reasonably sustain food
for their family rose from 13 million
in 2007 to 17 million households in
2008, according to a new report by the Food
and Drug Administration. The jump repre-
sents the highest number since the FDA start-
ed keeping track in 1995.
The government refers to this condition as
"food insecure" rather than hungry, which
they define as not having enough resources
throughout the year to pro-
vide food for all of their mem-
bers. The new label was
I _,1 adopted during the Bush
administration.
S . Outside of the Washington
beltway we call that hungry.
A third of those who were
deemed food insecure were
unable to feed everyone for
MORE at least a few days of the
ADVENTURES month for about eight out of
the 12 months of the year.
The FDA labeled them as
Martha very insecure.
Randolph The new lingo makes me
wonder who we're paying
Carr inside the beltway to come up
with ways to tie self-esteem to
a state of being. Their salary could probably
buy a few more meals for everyone instead.
Let's go old school and try it like this. If
someone doesn't eat they become hungry. If
they miss an entire day of food they become
very hungry. We'll take it for granted they feel
badly about the situation but we'll keep our
focus on the need for food. Perhaps someone
at one of the food pantries will give them the
needed pat on the back.
The surveys show that adults in the house-
hold went without and did their best to shield


any children from missing a meal. However,
there were 506,000 children, up from 323,000
in 2007, who didn't always have enough to eat
despite government programs. Local food
banks, which are often the last safety net for
families, have been reporting a decrease in
donations since the beginning of the recession
and have less to feed an increased number of
families seeking help.
Many of the newly hungry are doing their
best to hide the reduced status from their
neighbors or friends. We haven't come far
enough from our old way of thinking that how
we measure up as human beings depends
more on how we look than on how we treat
each other.
It is difficult for those who have been able
to not only feed their families but make regu-
lar mortgage payments to suddenly find them-
selves struggling for the most basic of needs.


hungry

All across America, though there are families
who are making decisions about where to put
the last dollars. The list is long and includes
things like prescription medicine, fuel for the
car, keeping a roof over everyone's head and
food.
The answer some families come up with is
to get just enough of each category to stay
afloat, which means that your neighbor may be
hungry but pride is keeping him from saying
anything.
Americans by nature want to be of service
to someone who is in need. When there is a
disaster we turn out in droves to help put
things back to a semblance of normal. We
understand that especially during the Great
Recession there are more valleys than hills.
It's not a mark of failure to ask for help.
Sometimes it's a good mark of character to be
able to accept as well as to be able to give. An
ability to be independent when taken too far
becomes a character defect and can cause us
to isolate from one another when we most
need to reach out and take a chance that help
will be provided without judgment.
Look for solutions as a neighborhood and
speak up about your limitations or your needs.
See if even just one block can't come together
and operate as a co-op during these unusual
times to make sure that no one goes without a
decent meal.
It's time we dropped the notion that came
out of the 1970's when air conditioning became
commonplace that the goal is to know as little
as possible about our neighbors. Let's try
adopting the idea that all of life is about
progress and never perfection. Then we can
admit that sometimes we don't know what
we're doing, it isn't going as planned and we
could use a little help. Imagine the example
we'll be setting for the generations to come.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


B&B blues
A few short years ago, Nancy
and I pursued our dream and pur-
chased the Amelia Island Williams
House Bed and Breakfast.
Nationally recognized and soon to
be a Cond6 Nast recipient of "one of
the two best Bed and Breakfasts in
the Southeast," we invested and
worked the 24/7 needed to keep
the Marcellus Williams House
Estate as a living, breathing part of
the ambiance that is Amelia Island.
Today's New-Leader (Nov. 18)
noted the closing of Hoyt House,
preceded by the closing of Ash
Street Inn and the sale of the Bailey
House, making it a private resi-
dence. The financial difficulties of
the Florida House Inn have been
previously covered in the News-
Leader. When Nancy and I sold the
Williams House, we lost approxi-
mately $500,000 of our own money
trying to pay exorbitant taxes and
insurance increases.
The bed and breakfasts helped
bring the Historic District and
Centre Street back to life in the early
1990s, only to face huge tax and
wind insurance increases.
As a realtor, I sell the ambiance
and lifestyle of Amelia Island every
day. Quaint shops, fabulous restau-
rants and bed and breakfasts are
things that define and bring life to
the island. After the tax increases
assured we would go out of busi-
ness, four B&B's hired an attorney
to take our case to the city and coun-
ty. I was asked by one of the com-
missioners if I thought I had made
a bad business decision.
The city streets used to be
packed when the annual bed and
breakfast tour was held. This was
part of Amelia Island tradition. It
appears there will be virtually no
public access this year to the B&Bs.
Only because they are being forced
out of business.
Paul and Nancy Barnes
Fernandina Beach

Traffic speeds
As a longtime driver of Florida
roads, I cannot believe anyone
would complain about someone
wanting to pass them, regardless of
the speed they were driving. As far
as staying in the left lane at the
speed limit, no one can justify that
when Florida law says "slower traf-
fic keep right." That law does not ref-
erence speed, but tells everyone to
move over to the right lane if some-
one is trying to pass you or is going
faster than you, regardless of the
proximity to the speed limit. You do
not own the left lane or the right
lane, but slower drivers, regardless
of the speed, should stay in the right
lane so those faster drivers can pass
without causing fear or other nega-
tive sentiment in more drivers. That
was a courtesy back in the old days
when drivers had some considera-
tion for other drivers. If you don't
like someone speeding, report them.
And by the way, it is not illegal to
pass on the right side.
If you drive in the left lane
because of the drivers turning off of
and returning to the main road, then
change lanes, if possible, prior to
having to slow down. However,
please use your turn signal as
required by law, even if the turning
driver doesn't use theirs. It's a
shame to have to slow down and
speed up while driving, but it's a lot
easier if you don't use your cell
phone or put on your makeup while
driving. It is also part of the science
of good driving to do this while caus-
ing minimum disturbance for others.
But you do have to care about oth-


bwfl~L


ers, and that seems to be the prob-
lem today.
Also, don't ride the rear bumper
of the driver in front of you. All that
does is irritate anyone with a desire
for a safety margin in case of an acci-
dent ahead. A lot of stupid, incon-
siderate drivers jerk around and pull
in front or behind with minimum
clearance just to get ahead of others.
Get their license number and report
them for careless and reckless driv-
ing. They probably won't be stopped
that day, but the sheriff's deputies
will have a driver to watch for, and
they do need to write more tickets,
you see.
In closing, please be more con-
siderate of others, and make the
speeders go faster in the left lane.
That way, the police can see them
better from the opposite side. Drive
carefully and considerately, please.
Especially when I'm on the road.
Kemmel Owen
Fernandina Beach

Rules of the road
In reference to the "Driving us
crazy" letter on Nov. 20: The out-
side lane is a passing lane, mean-
ing it is for passing only, not to be
settled into for the duration of your
journey. He may be keeping a fam-
ily member away from an emer-
gency at home or elsewhere. I can
imagine that these self-appointed
traffic cops are very frustrating to be
behind and I can see where it could
spark a bit of road rage in some peo-
ple. I travel off the island on my way
to work and lately I've found that
the most irritating part of my jour-
ney is some woman in a trance, talk-
ing on her cell phone, oblivious to all
that is going on around her. This
may sound sexist but it is my truth-
ful observation.
Brian Moss
Fernandina Beach

Powerful
About 1:06 a.m. this morning our
two clock radios turned on by them-
selves. Neither was set on. They just
came on. We thought this was
strange but who knows? We have
since learned from friends that this


phenomena happened to more than
a few people we know too. Does any-
one know what caused this strange
happening? Sunspots, flying saucers,
log trucks on Eighth Street or per-
haps terrorists ("Wreck snarls rou-
tines," Nov. 20)?
Walter Houle
Fernandina Beach

Bemused
I have rarely read a more thinly
veiled begging letter than that pro-
duced by your columnist Ryan
Smith under the til . .! N,., - .....!ii
Views" (Nov. 20). My heart would
go out to him along with a few of my
unwanted possessions were I not
aware that his sorry tale was written
with the assurance of a man with a
full stomach and a regular monthly
paycheck.
You will detect from my spelling
that I am a visitor to your sunny
shores and as a regular traveler of
the world I am keenly aware of the
impoverishment of others, not least
a broad swathe of residents of this
wonderful country. Sad then that,
instead of using his column to invite
the beneficence of a captive audi-
ence to benefit his more needy fel-
low countrymen/women, he uses,
or rather abuses, it to enrich his
own lifestyle.
Perhaps when his inevitable
flood of offers comes in and is deliv-
ered to his door he will leave a tin
cup outside to invite more flexible
donations.
I have to say that this type of
barefaced entrepreneurialism is
badly misplaced especially as, by its
inclusion in "the Leader," it appears
to be endorsed by his employer.

Keep right
Re: The letter "Driving us crazy,"
Nov. 18.
I have a very strong dislike for
the letter writer's callous, unsports-
manlike sense of operating a motor
vehicle in regard to left lane usage.
He used :l.1,, " in his letter. I will
refrain from similar usage. I enjoy
driving, and drivers that block in


JOHN COLE/THE SCRANTON TIMES-TRIBUNE

the left lane are a very real antago-
nist without cause. You, sir, and
those of the same ilk as you, are
simply gaming the courtesy rules of
the road. The rules clearly state,
"Keep right except to pass and slow-
er traffic keep right." In short, either
lead, follow or get the hell out of
the way. This works for driving,
walking or any public situation.
Ralph Stangel
Fernandina Beach

Move over
The gentleman who recently
wrote a letter saying that he has a
right to drive the speed limit in the
left hand lane any time he wishes
should read the latest news on that
matter.
A year or so ago in a bill aimed
at reducing the incidence of road
rage and aggressive driving on the
state's multiple-lane highways, the
legislature amended the law to read
that a person may drive in the left-
hand lane if that person is driving
the posted speed limit and not
blocking the flow of traffic in that
lane. Therefore, the inverse is true.
You may not drive the speed limit in
the left lane if drivers behind you
wish to drive faster unless switching
to the right lane would pose a haz-
ard or unless you are passing slow-
er vehicles to your right. After that,
if you're blocking faster drivers
behind you, you have an obligation
to yield and let them pass. It is not
up to any driver to be the con-
science of the road, nor to inten-
tionally become a rolling roadblock
just because one feels like doing
so. Such actions only serve to annoy
and further aggravate other driv-
ers.
Bottom line - if the guy coming
up behind you wants to drive 80
mph, it isn't your place to try to stop
him. That's a function of law enfor-
cement. If that's what you wish to
do, fine. Become a police officer
and have at it. Bear in mind, when
you elect to homestead the left lane
and block those who wish to pass
you, you are also violating the law.
You can't have it both ways.

there, all four pounds of him, visi-
ble in the shadows. At the plop of
the bream on the water, Bob struck
into action. A brief snap, the water
roiled, then was still again.
The next bream Jim caught
moments later was even larger, too
big, even I could see, for old Bob.
No problem, this fish was tossed
further into the lake, causing an
even bigger snap and splash.
Bob's friends, bass that Jim says
are maybe as much as 12 pounds
in size, big ones, had been wait-
ing in deeper water for their own
feast.
Noting the disturbance, Bird-
ley, the great egret, flew into the
yard and stood on the grass behind
us. Bream are too big for Birdley's
skinny neck, but no problem. Jim
had some other small fish, newly
caught, waiting in his bait bucket
and tossed one towards him.
Birdley swallowed his fish, and
eying me, the stranger, with dis-
trust, edged ever closer to Jim and
the action.
This was all just the warmup

act. What I real-
ly wanted to see
were the
snakes. I've
heard about Jim
and his "snake
act" and I was
determined to
see it myself.
Jim, I've been
told, has trained
the large black
water snakes
that live in his
lake. "Right," I
thought, 'this I
have to see to


It took awhile for the snakes to
show up. Like Birdley and the
dozen or so pond turtles also lurk-
ing nearby, they were unsure about
me, the stranger in their midst.
But eventually the pull of free fish
overcame the fear of the unknown.
Zachariah, a small brown water
snake with the fearlessness of a
teenager, came sidling up to the
shoreline.
"Hand me my stick." Jim said,
and I complied. With a bream in
one hand, and the stick in another,
Jim lured Zach in. The snake fol-
lowed the tip of the stick and slith-
ered to shore and right up to Jim's
feet and his waiting hand full of a
nice tasty live bream. Zach the
snake quickly grabbed the fish and
slid off. A few minutes later, he
was back, and again Jim lured him
in with the stick and fed him anoth-
er.
This particular afternoon I did-
n't see the other black water
snakes, the big guys, that also
sometimes show up for their
evening feeds, but Jim showed me
photos. These snakes all have
names, and personalities. "Pop-
eye," for instance, has an injured


eye. "Mode the Magnificent" is
about three feet long and as thick
as a man's wrist. In all there are 10
black snakes Jim knows. And some
of them are tame enough, now,
that he picks them up and handles
them. The photos are there as
proof. Amazing.
Many people are afraid of
snakes, but mostly without reason.
These big black water snakes
(Nerodia fasciata pictiventris) are
non-venomous - not dangerous
like the water moccasins they
resemble. With repetition, a good
knowledge of B.J. Skinner's rules
of operant conditioning and an
open mind toward nature, Jim has
befriended them, and, yes, I've
gotta say, trained them to come
when he wiggles that stick.
These same snakes, and
Birdley, and the bass and the pond
turtles keep Jim company when
he sits in his backyard with a piece
of bread and a hook and line. Jim
and his friends have been per-
forming in his backyard for a cou-
ple of years now. During the cold
months of winter the snakes dis-
appear, but in spring they are back,
right at their feeding station. In
late winter Birdley, the egret, flies
off too, most likely further south to
a rookery. When Birdley returns in
a couple of months his bill is still
bright green and his feathers are
plumed in breeding mode after his
reproductive trip south.
It's not everyone who wants to
hand-feed wild snakes, but Jim has
proven to me that it's possible. And
now I'm "hooked" too. Next time I
can, I'm going back to see the big
guys. Seeing is believing, it's true.
And now, I'm a believer!

Collect rainwater in


barrels for home use


[\
Ct /D



CJIUJA

Dear EarthTalk How can I
make good use of the rainwater
that runs down my roof and into
my gutters?
Brian Smith, Nashua, NH
For most of us, the rain that
falls on our roof runs off into
the ground or the sewer sys-
tem. But if you're motivated to
save a little water and re-dis-
tribute it on your lawns or plants
- or even use it for laundry, dish-
es or other interior needs- col-
lecting rainwater from your gut-
ters' downspouts is a no-brainer.
If it's allowed in your state,
that is. Utah and parts of
Washington State have anti-
quated but nonetheless tough
laws banning anyone but own-
ers of water rights from col-
lecting rainwater flowing off pri-
vately owned rooftops. Such
laws are rarely enforced, how-
ever, and one in Colorado was
recently overturned.
According to John C. Davis,
writing in E- The Environmen-
tal Magazine, just about any
homeowner can collect rainwa-
ter, given that the roof and gut-
ters do most of the work. And
since an inch of rain falling on a
2,000-square-foot roof produces
some 1,200 gallons of runoff,
one can harvest enough to sup-
ply all the water needs of a fam-
ily of four for about two weeks.
Of course, most of us would
only use rainwater to irrigate
our lawn or garden, and there
should be plenty to go around
for doing that in all but the most
drought stricken areas.
Plants and grass actually do
better when fed rainwater in-
stead of tap water, which is usu-
ally treated with softeners that
actually inhibit plant growth.
And, reports Davis, the lack of
minerals in rainwater actually
makes it more effective than tap
water for shampooing or doing
dishes. Using rainwater for
plumbing uses can also extend
the life of pipes and water
heaters, since the salts added
to tap water facilitate corrosion.
Homeowners should set up a
water purification system if they
do plan to use rainwater for inte-
rior needs.
Beyond the benefits to indi-
vidual homeowners, rainwater
harvesting can also be good for
the local community, as it
reduces the erosion, flooding

Collecting rainwater from your gutters' downspouts is a
no-brainer and is not expensive to do. It can then be
used to water the lawn and garden, and even be used for
laundry, dishes and other interior needs with the addi-
tion of a water purification system.


and pollution runoff associated
with heavy rainfall, and lessens
reliance on public water sup-
plies, alleviating some of the
burden on utilities. Given these
benefits, some states, including
even drought-prone Texas, sub-
sidize residential rainwater col-
lection systems.
Many varieties of rain bar-
rel systems, starting at just $100,
are available for home installa-
tion. Atypical set-up is simply a
rain barrel positioned under a
gutter's downspout. "The bar-
rel is typically fitted with a spig-
ot at its base to fill a watering
can or attach a soaker hose
(which bleeds out water all
along its length, providing
effortless drip irrigation), and a
filter or screen at its top to pre-
vent a buildup of leaves and
other debris," writes Davis.

Weatherization services
include improvements such as
caulking and weather stripping
doors and windows, replacing
door thresholds, repairing duct
systems, adding insulation to
attics and walls and making
minor repairs to floors and ceil-
ings.
Funding for the program is
provided by the U.S.
Department of Energy and the
Florida Department of
Community Affairs.
In 2008, NFCAA received
$453,000 for the program. This
year, the agency's budget is
$1.04 million and an estimated
536 homes are expected to be
complete before the end of
2010. In the coming month,
NFCAA expects to receive,
based on performance, an addi-
tional $4 million for the pro-
gram as a result of the
American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act.
"Most low income families
spend 17 percent of their total
annual income on energy, while
the average for most homes is
4 percent. That means many
folks forego basic necessities to
keep their homes heated and
cooled during peak seasons,"
said John Edwards, executive
director of the Northeast
Florida Community Action
Agency. "By weatherizing
homes, low income families


can realize both short- and
long-term savings on their util-
ity bills."
Weatherizing not only helps
individual homeowners, but the
community as well by improv-
ing housing quality, reducing
greenhouse gas emissions and
supporting the local economy.
For every $1 invested in the
program, weatherization
returns $1.67 in reduced ener-
gy bills.
Nassau County residents
interested in learning more
about the weatherization pro-
gram should call the Northeast
Florida Community Action
Agency at 261-0801.
For more than 40 years, the
Northeast Florida Community
Action Agency (NFCAA) has
been a driving force in elimi-
nating poverty in Northeast
Florida. In addition to providing
emergency financial assistance
to those in need, NFCAA's edu-
cational programs and services
help individuals earn, maintain
and grow an income to achieve
self-sufficiency and financial
independence. Coupled with
youth development services
and community improvement
projects, NFCAA and its clients
help build better communities
and improve the quality of life
for all. For more information,

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2009 NEWS News-Leader


POLICE REPORT


This was written by Jason
Yurgartis of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, the city of Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,
Hilliard and Bryceville. The "We
Tip"program - 1-800-78CRIME
- also allows callers to leave
anonymous tips.
Home invasion
An 81-year-old Fernandina
Beach man was the reported
victim of a home invasion rob-
bery Saturday when he was hit
with a blunt object and robbed
of $200.
According to Nassau County
Sheriff's Office reports, the man
first contacted authorities about
3:30 p.m. Saturday to report a
suspected burglary he said took
place over the last month. The
back door was pried open at the


man's home on the 96000 block
of Lonnie's Lane and a televi-
sion and DVD player stolen, a
report stated. Deputies were
unable to find any footprints,
tire impressions or latent fin-
gerprints.
Hours later, just before 8:30
p.m., the man answered a knock
at his door and was hit over the
head with a blunt object, knock-
ing him to the floor, a report
stated. The suspect demanded
money while hitting the man in
the head, causing a small lac-
eration near his left ear, the
report stated.
According to the report, the
suspect fled the scene with $210
from the man's pocket. Rescue
70 examined the victim at the
scene, but he refused to go to
the hospital, the report stated.
The incident is pending inves-
tigation.
Mistaken identity
A possible case of mistaken
identity on the roadway
Thursday evening led to an
altercation in which a Callahan
man reportedly stabbed an
assailant after a brief attack.
The 24-year-old victim was
traveling south on Ratliff Road


just after 7 p.m. Nov. 19, a
Nassau County Sheriff's office
report stated, when four white
males in a silver Mitsubishi with
one red fender came from
behind with headlights flash-
ing. The victim told authorities
he saw one of the men flashing
a gun out the driver's side win-
dow.
As the victim approached
Woodland Drive and Pinewood
Court, an older model black
Chevy Suburban with duct tape
on the passenger window pulled
into the roadway, blocking trav-
el, the report stated.
A white male exited the car
and yelled at the victim about
messing with "Kylie," then
punched him in the face, the
report stated.
According to the report, the
victim, fearing one of the men
had a gun, pulled a knife from
his pocket and stabbed the
assailant in the hand.
As the victim sped from the
scene, he saw the suspect point-
ing in his direction, but the
report made no mention of
shots fired.
The victim told authorities
he had an altercation with the
same vehicle while driving on

Ratliff Road, but that he does
not know the suspects and
believes they mistook him for
someone else.
A deputy returned to scene
and tested what appeared to be
dried blood in the roadway, but
it was not, the report stated.
The knife used by the victim
also was not found, and a check
of local hospitals for stabbing
victims proved fruitless.
Stun gun used
A sheriff's deputy deployed
his stun gun Thursday evening
after a man reportedly tried to
flee into a wooded area near US
17 and Harts Road during a traf-
fic stop.
According to reports, Larry
William Gonzalez, 27, of
Jacksonville was subdued by
the stun gun and handcuffed
after being pulled over for run-
ning a red light at the intersec-
tion of US 17 and AlA in Yulee.
Gonzalez allegedly admitted his
license was suspended for being
a habitual traffic offender, the
report stated.
Gonzalez was treated and
released by Rescue 30, then
booked into the Nassau County
Jail for driving while license is
suspended or revoked for habit-
ual traffic offenses, a felony, and
resisting an officer without vio-
lence, a misdemeanor, the
report stated.
Barbershop burglars
City police are looking for
suspects in break-ins at two
Fernandina Beach barbershops,
just blocks apart, Thursday
morning.
Just after 7:30 a.m. an
employee at Vic's Barber Shop
at 529 S. Ninth St. discovered
the glass front door of the busi-
ness was broken, a police report
stated. Inside he discovered

about $520 worth of grooming
equipment such as clippers and
scissors missing, the report stat-
ed.
Police canvassed the neigh-
borhood and spoke to a witness
who said she woke to the sound
of breaking glass about 1 a.m.
Thursday, looked outside and
saw the front door of the bar-
bershop appeared to be open.
The woman told police she
saw two men walk from the
north side of the shop, south
on Ninth Street, right on Fir
Street, then west toward Eighth
Street. She said the men were
about five feet, 10 inches to six
feet tall with slender builds, the
report stated. Both wore dark
clothing with hoods over their
heads and she could not tell if
they were white or black, the
report stated.
The witness said the men
were walking fast with their
hands in their pockets, but she
did not think to call police.
A few hours later, just after
10:30 a.m., police responded to
an attempted burglary at Island
Barbershop at 901 S. Ninth St.
A witness contacted the owner
about 9:30 a.m. and told him
someone tried to get into the
barbershop, and when the
owner arrived, he found some-
one had tried to pry the wood
trim from a glass window in one
of the doors, but was not suc-
cessful, the report stated.
The victim said he believed
the suspects knew two other
doors had metal face plates on
the inside, preventing easy
access, the report stated.
Witnesses who live behind
the business reported hearing a
loud noise between 9 and 10
p.m. the previous night, but they
did not see anyone outside, the
report stated.

COURT REPORT


Probation
JASON YURGARTIS
News Leader
A former Nassau County Jail
deputy was sentenced to pro-
bation and community service
Thursday after pleading guilty to
misconduct stemming from alle-
gations he let prisoners break
the law.
Cody Wayne Flint-Davis, 21,
of Hilliard also will lose his law
enforcement certificated.
He was arrested in April for
"looking the other way" as
inmates obtained illicit drugs
and allowing an inmate to
receive a sexual photo through
the mail.
Flint-Davis pleaded guilty for
convenience to official miscon-
duct relating to disclosure or
use of confidential criminal jus-
tice information and adjudica-
tion was withheld. A charge of
introducing contraband into a
jail was not prosecuted. Flint-
Davis was sentenced to 18
months' probation and 75 hours
of community service along
with court costs and restitution.
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
said Flint-Davis was checking
inmates' mail and allowed a sex-
ually explicit photograph to get
in the hands of an inmate, which
is against jail policy.
Deputies also received infor-


for deputy
b - mation in
March from
an informant
that Flint-
Davis "was
Present and
did not act
appropriately"
Flint-Davis when drugs
were brought
into the jail,
and that he "personally distrib-
uted" the photograph to the
inmate.
During a mock fire drill
planned after jail personnel
learned there were drugs in an
inmate's cell, Seagraves said sur-
veillance camera footage
showed Flint-Davis "huddled up
with an inmate having a private
conversation as the pod was
being evacuated, as if he was
warning the inmate of an
impending shakedown." The
shakedown yielded no drugs.
According to Seagraves,
Flint-Davis was also seen on
tape "in view of the inmates" as

PHOTOS BY BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
Fernandina Beach Middle School's boys and girls soccer teams captured the county championships Saturday at Fernandina Beach High School.
The FBMS Lady Pirates defeated Callahan 6-0 in the title game and the FBMS boys edged Yulee 1-0 for the crown. Andre Gianinni scored the
lone goal on a corner kick with five minutes to go into overtime. Yulee's Chad Kern battles FBMS's Ellis Bruchman, left. FBMS's Amy

steals the ball just in front of their own goal to prevent a Pirate goal. Callahan's girls eliminated Yulee in the first game of the day; Yulee's boys
ousted Callahan in game two. The FBMS girls blanked Callahan 6-0 in the title game. Erin Joyce scored a trio of goals, Taylor Kinsley scored two
with one on a penalty kick and Strozinsky scored a goal. Strozinsky had two assists, Lolly Anderson had one and Ashley Kinsley had two. Goalie
Sierra Conner recorded two saves. The FBMS girls were undefeated in the county and never gave up a goal to either Yulee or Callahan. Their
only loss was a non-district game against Lakeside Junior High School. "I'm very proud of all the girls," FBMS Coach Carolyn Sauls said. "The
entire team played hard from start to finish. It was a perfect ending to another great season.


Bowl loss


for Yulee


Hornets

BETH JONES
News Leader
Providence (9-2) jumped out
to a 24-0 halftime lead Thursday
in the Baker Sporting Goods
Bowl Game, but Yulee (7-4) bat-
tled in the second half.
"We got it to 31-16 in the
fourth, but couldn't get any
closer," Yulee High School
football coach Bobby Ramsay
said.
Conner Petty connected
with Derrick Peterson for a 23-
yard touchdown to cut the lead
to 24-8 with 7:23 left in the third
quarter. Derrick "Shocka"
Henry ran in the two-point con-
version.
Henry (190 yards on 21 car-
ries) broke a pair of tackles and
bounced outside down the
Yulee sideline for a 73-yard TD,
going the final 25 yards
untouched to cut host Provi-
dence's lead to 31-16 with 1:35
left in the third quarter.
Petty finished the night with
147 passing yards. Derrick
Peterson had a pair of catches
and Antario Rainey had a recep-
tion for 43 yards. Kelvin Rainey
had three catches.
Cameron Ponder again led
the Hornet defense against the
Stallions with eight tackles,
three for a loss. Byron
Alderman had six tackles and a
pair of pass breakups. Devron
Wingard had five tackles and
Mychal Culpepper and Jake
Litecky had six apiece.
"We lose kids that built a
tremendous foundation for the
future," Ramsay said. "All our
seniors had great careers and
they will really be missed. I
hate to see them leave.
"We do have a very good
group of young players though.
The key though is for them to
work hard in the offseason, as
hard as possible. We must
improve our depth. That is key.
But it's getting there. We have
a winning record to build on a
bright future."


Pirate soccer team goes 2-2 to open the season; girls are 4-4


Fernandina Beach High School's
boys soccer team was 2-2 heading into
Monday's match at Bartram Trail.
The Pirates opened the season with
an 8-0 shutout against Yulee. Chris
Castro (senior) scored a hat trick in
the game with three goals. Shane
Goodman (freshman) had two goals.
Robby Phillips (junior), Jason Olbina
(senior) and Connor Nelson (sopho-
more) all had goals. Olbina and
Phillips also had assists along with
Tyler Thornton (senior) and Nathan
Shiver (sophomore).
The Pirates picked up another


HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP

shutout, topped Bishop Snyder 1-0.
Castro had the lone goal of the game.
"We had many other opportunities
against Snyder, but were unable to
capitalize," FBHS Coach Dan Snyder
said. 'The defense played well, led by
goalie Davis Haney, who earned his
second shutout of the season."
The next games on the schedule
were "tests of character for a some-
what depleted varsity squad," accord-


ing to Snyder. FBHS faced a tough
Fletcher squad next and the Pirates
held Fletcher to just two goals in more
than 80 minutes of play.
'The defense was spearheaded
again by goalie Davis Haney with out-
standing defensive performances
turned in by Mason Suhr (junior)
along with seniors Chris Head and
Olbina," Snyder said.
The Pirates lost 1-0 to Providence.
'The game marked the homecom-
ing of former Pirate head coach Josh
Dunn, who is now coaching for the
Providence varsity program," Snyder


said. "Although the boys played a good
organized game on the defensive end,
the squad was not able to match
Providence's lone goal on the offensive
side of the field."
* The FBHS girls sandwiched a
pair of wins around a loss in their most
recent matches. Tara Whitaker had
two goals and Lauren Moule had the
other in a 3-0 shutout over St.
Augustine. Emily Wilson and Perin
Bille scored in a 5-2 loss to Clay
County. The Lady Pirates (4-4) blanked
West Nassau 5-0 on Monday. Rachel
Gillespie, Wilson, Joanna Page, Moule


and Whitaker scored.
*The Yulee Lady Hornets basket-
ball team edged FBHS 45-39 Monday,
dropping the Lady Pirates' record to 1-
2. The score was knotted after a quar-
ter and at the half. Whitney Small (14)
and Ebony Peterson (10) led FBHS
on the scoreboard.
'The Lady Pirates are looking for-
ward to the re-match against Yulee,"
Coach Mike Landtroop said.
FBHS edged West Nassau 57-53
Thursday. Small had 15 points, Cher-
relle Holcey had 12 and Mackenzie
McBride had 10.

Jarzyna claims men's blitz title


Last week was a good week for golf as 64
players came out to take part in the blitz on
Wednesday at the Fernandina Beach Golf
Club. There were some good scores turned
in, led by Tony Jarzyna, who had an 81 and
plus 10 points to take individual honors but
did not make it onto a winning team.
There was a tie for second and third
places at plus 8 between Jim Raffone (80) and
Jim Robertson (one-under-par 72).
An all-plus team, led by Robertson (plus 8)
and Lee Murray (83, plus 7), won first place
as Larry Luett (76, plus 5) and Charles
Himmelheber (80, plus 2) also contributed to
the winning total of plus 22.
Another all-plus team that included Al
Jump (91, plus 4), Steve Johnson (76, plus 3),
Sam Dubose (92, plus 2) and Bob Craven (90,
plus 1) finished a distant second at plus 10.
Third place at plus 8 went to the team of
Sammy Alvarez (76, plus 5), Jack Croake (79,
plus 2), Freelon Pate (91, plus 1) and Charles
Kicklighter (84, even).
Raffone's plus 8 got enough help from
Allen Elefterion (80, plus 1) and Mike
Dowling (91, plus 1) to offset the minus 3 of
Clayton Jones (87) to claim fourth place at
plus 7.
With continued good but windy weather,
the turnout for the Friday blitz totaled 75
players. Frank Finocchio (83) won individual
honors with plus 8 points.
For the second blitz in a row Lee Murray
(86) came in at plus 7, which was good
enough for second place. Charles Kicklighter,
with an 80, and Tommy Shave, an even-par
73, shared third place at plus 6.
With Kicklighter (plus 6) and Shave (plus
6) on the same five-man team that included
Tom Roberts (76, plus 4), Dennis Sassenger
(87, plus 1) and Jerry Hudgins (99, minus 2),
their winning total was plus 15.
Second place went to the team of
Finocchio (plus 8), Sammy Alvarez (80, plus
1), Garey Durden (90, plus 1) and John Bray
(87, even) at plus 10.
Third place was claimed by the only other
team to finish in the plus column. Murray's
plus 7 got help from Rudy Campanale (96,
plus 4), which offset the minus 4 of Doug
Wolfe (92) and Adam Loud (81, minus 1), as
the team finished at plus 6.
There was a tie for fourth place at even
between the teams of Kim Davies (81, plus
2), Bob Brewer (86, plus 1), Jim Raffone (88,
minus 1), Pat Whelan (91, minus 2) and Bill
Abee (83, plus 4), Jim McFarland (96, plus 1)
Mike Joyce (79, minus 2), Freelon Pate (95,
minus 3).

Breakfast mixer
Twenty-four players took part in the
Saturday Morning Breakfast Mixer with
Price Poole leading the way with a two-under-
par 71, good for plus 8 points and individual
honors.
There was a tie at plus 6 for second place
between Troy Therriault (98) and Pat
Whelan (86). There was also a tie for fourth
place at plus 5 involving Carl O'Rourke (78),
Tim Poynter (8) and Allen Sage (80).

f We talk all the time about how to gain
S strokes on our golf game and work-
ing around the green is a vital com-
ponent. However, one of the areas
that we hardly ever work on is the
very short wedge. We are talking
S I anywhere from the 20-yard to the 50-
yard shot that is very difficult because we never take
a full swing like a pitching wedge or with our irons.
Here are a couple of drills to practice to improve your
short wedge game. The first drill is to set a goal for
yourself on the range or around the green and prac-
tice hitting the ball consistently that distance. This
helps you get a feel for how much backswing you
need to hit the ball the appropriate distance. The
other drill is to roll golf balls underhand a set distance
in order to try to develop a rhythm for those tricky
short pitch shots.


Former PGA Champion Mark Brooks won the Callaway Golf Pebble Beach
Invitational for a record third time on Sunday, with birdies on three of the last , \
four holes for a 5-under 67 and a two-stroke victory over Rickie Fowler and D.A. '- -
Points. "I believe I had only four bogeys the entire week and two of those were on\,
short putts," said Brooks who had two bogeys and seven birdies in his final round,\, '
including a 16-footer on 18. "I kept the ball in the fairway and that's always been what
I do best."Brooks, 48, who began the final round as co-leader with Fowler, had a 12-under 276
total and became the first three-time winner in the tournament's 38-year history. The seven-time
PGA Tour winner also won the unofficial event in 1992 and 2002. Brooks also finished second in

One incredible kingfish catch for McMullens


"It was early afternoon and
we had run completely out of
live baits," Barrett McMullen
said. "With two kingfish
weighing in the mid 40s iced
down in our fish bag, we
decided to run to a distant oil
rig and jig up enough live
baits to finish out our day of
king mackerel fishing.
"Normally the two kings
we had caught earlier would
win the majority of king
mackerel
tourna-
ments, but
we were fish-
ing in the
Mississippi
Delta, where
50-pound
king macker-
el are com-
OUTDOORS monplace."
Barrett
McMullen
Te[rryLacoss was fishing
with brother Brant and father
Rube on their kingfish boat,
properly named, "Ocean Isle
Fishing." The family fishing
team hails from Ocean Isles
Beach, N.C., and operates a
marine business called Ocean
Isles Marine.
"We made a 10-mile run
inshore to an oil rig that was
holding bait, but came up
with only a dozen blue run-
ners for our efforts," Barrett
McMullen said. 'The only
option was to run back off-
shore and hope we could land
a much larger king mackerel
with one of the live baits that
we had secured."
Good fortune was about to
play a winning hand for the
McMullens as they spotted
several sea birds diving into a
pod of baitfish schooling
close to the surface.
"It was a natural instinct to
secure my 12-foot Carolina
cast net and toss it over that
school of baitfish," Brant
McMullen said. "While sink-
ing deep over the school, I
noticed several pogies run-
ning into the net that made it
almost impossible for me to
hold the net. My father gave
me a hand and we soon had
several good-size pogies
secured in our boat's live bait
well."
The North Carolina king-
fish team rigged the live
pogies to kingfish leaders and
was soon catching 20- to 30-
pound king mackerel.
"We could actually see
kingfish deep under the sur-
face running through the
school of pogies," Brant
McMullen said. 'This prompt-
ed me to rig a double pogy
kingfish leader and drop it
down deep with a downrigger.
The pair of barbed pogies had
barely reached the desired

water depth when a kingfish
charged the baits and took off
on a super long run."
"I had the pleasure of
fighting that fast running king
mackerel that nearly spooled
my Shimano Speed Master
kingfish reel," Barrett
McMullen said. "I know that
king ran some 400 yards of
20-pound mono line off my
reel before it took the fight
deep in the 240 feet of water."
Slowly the king mackerel
began to tire and came
straight up to the boat, where
Barrett McMullen was the
first to see his tiring king
mackerel.
"Pop, get the gaff," Barrett
McMullen shouted excitedly.
'This king is huge. Hurry,
hurry!"
Rube McMullen gaffed his
son's king just ahead of the
tail and began lifting the king
over the bow of the boat
when the point of the gaff
barbed the rub rail. At this
point, Brant McMullen came
to the rescue and, with all
three fishermen at hand, they
managed to lift the massive
king mackerel onto the bow
of their 32-foot Yellowfin king-
fish boat, powered by a pair of
350 HP Yamaha outboards.
"It was the most incredible
fish," Brant McMullen later


told fellow Southern Kingfish
Association fishermen. "As
we stood there and looked at
the massive size of that king
mackerel, we suddenly real-
ized that it was too big to fit in
the kingfish bag or the fish
box."
The McMullens' giant
king mackerel later weighed
74.1 pounds on the SKA tour-
nament scales, where shouts
of appreciation could be
heard throughout the coastal
gambling town of Biloxi,
Miss. Paired with a 44.03-
pound king mackerel they
caught earlier that day, the
McMullens took home first-
place honors in the presti-
gious 2009 SKA Biloxi
National Championship with
an SKA record-breaking two-
fish aggregate weight of
118.13 pounds.
Their 74.1-pound king
mackerel also set a new
record for the SKA as the
largest king mackerel ever
weighed in during an event.
The McMullens' king mack-
erel is also the pending new
Mississippi state record king
mackerel.
The event was set for two
days of competition, but a
weather front was supposed
to arrive Saturday. SKA direc-
tor Jack Holmes gave all the


216 teams registered for the
tournament the option of
weighing in two king macker-
el during the first day, one
each day or two on the final
day.
Fernandina Beach's Jeff
and Nancy Dunbar invited me
to fish with them on the "Fish
Dancer" during the first day
of the event. The Dunbars ran
some 75 miles offshore and
fished an area called the
"Horseshoe." Shortly after 2
p.m. Jeff and Nancy Dunbar
had nearly run out of live
hardtails after experiencing a
kingfish bite of a lifetime.
"In all my days of king
mackerel fishing, I have
never experienced a kingfish
bite like this one," Jeff
Dunbar said. "After barbing a
live bait and dropping it back
behind our slow trolling 'Fish
Dancer,' it did not take more
than 15 seconds before a 20-
to 40-pound kingfish was eat-
ing the live bait."
I witnessed some 50 boats
fishing in the same area at
any given time and most of
the boats were fighting king-
fish. Kingfish were sky-rock-
eting on live baits and it was
the most incredible kingfish
bite ever.

tured with a 38-pound kingfish that topped off a day of
fishing they won't soon forget.

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


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

Hunt Nassau Wildlife Management
Hunt the Nassau Wildlife Management
Area in Nassau County during this hunting
season. Nassau WMA is 13,892 acres near
Callahan. Users must have a Nassau recre-
ational use permit to hunt on this area. Nassau
WMA is a still-hunt area only, but hunters may
use bird dogs during the migratory bird and
waterfowl hunting seasons.
For those willing to pay $385 to hunt the
area, Nassau WMA provides hunting opportu-
nities during eight months of the year. General
gun season is through Jan. 10, 2010; small
game is from Jan. 11 through March 7, 2010;
spring turkey season runs from March 20
through April 25, 2010; and trapping can be
done from Jan. 11 through March 1, 2010.
To apply for a recreational use permit to
hunt on Nassau WMA, go to MyFWC.com.
Recreational use permits are designed to
provide more revenue to landowners in the
WMA system. Money set aside by the FWC to
compensate those landowners for hunting use
on their lands was not sufficient to compete
with private hunting leases. Rather than have
WMAs drop out of the system, the FWC offers
recreational use permits. Fees collected from
these permits supplement the compensation
for private landowners, keeping their lands
open to public hunting.
Except for hunting, permit holders and
their spouses or dependent children may par-
ticipate in other activities on designated
WMAs. Only permit holders and one depend-
ent child (under age 16) may hunt. If spouses
or more than one dependent child (under age
16) wish to hunt, they must purchase a recre-
ational use permit. Recreational use permits
also include a management area permit when
hunting public lands not in the recreational


use program.
Recreational use permits do not apply to
other recreational use program areas. Once
permits are issued, they can be renewed annu-
ally for two additional years, essentially mak-
ing them a three-year permit. Permit renewals
are mailed May 1. Eligible applicants have
until May 31 to renew their recreational use
permits for the next season. Permits not
renewed by May 31 will be forfeited.
Permits are issued individually on a first-
come, first-served basis in June. Submit an
application at www.wildlifelicense.com or take
a completed worksheet to a tax collector's
office or any license agent. Worksheets are
available online at MyFWC.com, at FWC
regional offices and tax collectors' offices in
counties surrounding a specific WMA.

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

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


The inner sleuth embraces the mystery genre


Being an avid consumer of
books, I pride myself in try-
ing to mix it up a little. My
first choice has never been
mysteries. In fact, they are my last
choice. I like to savor my books and
have little patience when unan-
swered questions push me to cheat
and look at the end of the book.
In my determination to be the
reader of a broader spectrum of pos-
sible books, I recently read not only
one but two mysteries. One a classic,
The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell
Hammett, and our community Big
Read that launches in January.
The second is a book by a friend,
and successful novelist, William
Rawlings, who recently sent me the
advance copy of his latest book, a
murder mystery, The Mile High
Club. Advance copies are a gift.
Copies are sent to the press and


folks you want to
get to read the

cial publication.
Perfect timing.
Rawlings' latest
publication arrived
in the mail just as I
was ready to start a
new book.
FROM I dove into the
THE advance copy and
PORCH found myself spell-
bound by Rawlings'
story that was full
Dickie of familiar south
Anderson Georgia locales and
newfound informa-
tion about the paper mill industry. I
grew to know the characters and
their foibles and attributes. I
thumbed the pages faster and faster
as the end of the book and conclu-


sion approached. I was close to the
back cover and ...
Nightmare of nightmares. It
stopped on page 220, clearly unre-
solved and missing the conclusion. I
immediately got on the computer
and tapped out an impatient note to
Rawlings, asking if he had teased on
purpose? Cruel and unusual punish-
ment to a dedicated reader.
His response was quick and
full of apology. Most important, he
sent the rest of the book as an
attachment so I could find peace and
resolution regarding the bad guys
and vindication for the wrongly
accused. We remain friends, but I
owe him one. Rawlings, a talented
teacher and speaker, will be at the
Amelia Island Book Festival's
Writers' Workshop Feb. 12, 2010,
and a featured speaker at the festival
Saturday, Feb. 13.


So I am into mysteries. What
luck. The ultimate murder mystery
is coming to Fernandina Beach.
None other than Dashiell Hammett's
the Maltese Falcon and his famous
lead character - Sam Spade.
The community is going to know
Sam Spade and Hammett's cast of
characters a lot better. Nassau
County is celebrating the Big Read -
a grant from the National
Endowment of the Arts featuring
Hammett and his classic masterpiece
The Maltese Falcon.
So just what is The Big Read? The
NEA conducted a study in 2004 that
found Americans are reading less,
especially classics. The Big Read was
developed to bring people back to lit-
erature. The largest read in
American history will bring $10,000
and national recognition to our small
community. Watch for the billboard


on AIA and US 17 in January and an
interview on NPR!
A highlight of the Big Read cele-
bration will be a special luncheon at
The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island on
Jan. 29 featuring Julie Rivett, grand-
daughter of Dashiell Hammett.
So awaken the sleuth in you and
read a good mystery. Especially, read
The Maltese Falcon - it's a classic.
For more information about
William Rawlings go to
www.williamrawlings.com.
For information about the Big
Read or to make luncheon reserva-
tions go to www.Read.Nassau.lib.fl.us
or call any branch of the Nassau
County Libraries System.

accumulated 186,105 hours of volunteer service in the promotion of literacy. DAR members tutored
reading, taught English as a second language, educated the public about literacy levels, encouraged
parents to instill in their children a love of reading, donated books, helped students prepare for their
GED, mentored at-risk students, read to the blind, recorded books on tape, distributed brochures on
literacy, partnered with literacy organizations and raised funds for literacy.
Education is one of the cornerstones of the National Society. Across the country, Daughters are
