RYAN SMITH
Newus-Leader
Nassau Countys interim fre chief
asked the county commission last
week to create three new fire captain
positions. However, uncertainty about
how to fund the plan led the board to
postpone the decision until a later
meeting.
Interim Fire Chief Sam Young had
made the case for: hiring new person-
nel at a Jan. 20 workshop meeting of
the county commission specifically
.highlighting the need for new captains
.. to act as battalion chiefs. One of the
department's biggest problems, foi~ng
said then, was that there was cui~rent-
lyr only one battalion chief on any given
shift which presented difficulties
when simultaneous emergencies arose
on both the East and West Sides. His
proposed solution was to create sepa-'
rate battalions for each side of the
county.
At the Jan. 25 meeting, Young pr~o-
posed promoting three lieutenants to
captain an additional cost to the
department of about $40,000 for fis-
cal* 2010, according to County
Coordinator Ed Sealover. The promo-
tions would also necessitate a shuffle
within the department, as three engi-
neers would have to' be promoted to
replace the lieutenants and eventu-
ally;, three firefighters promoted to

Newus-Leader
If the project is approved .by city
commissioners, the Historic District
.Counctl may ask the city to enlist a
local allege university tohelpideve l-
op a five-year plan for the historic dis-
trict.
HDC members at a recent work-
shop concurred with Chair Suanne
Thammi's suggestion to bring mn out-
side help for a fresher approach in
Revitalizing the historic district and
possibly other outlying areas of
Fernaridina Beach.
The HDC held the workshop
because city commissioners had iden-
Stified the historic district as one of
their top concerns during a vision and
planning meeting last summer.
HDC members also discussed
whether the five-yiear plan ~should per-


and Susan Haun Mowery suggested
that, since all areas are tied together,
the city's scope should be to preserve
as many areas as possible, including
'the South Eighth Street corridor.
Member Nancy Freeman said the plan
should take a "circle approach," bring-
ing in both the downtown historic core
as well as outlying areas.
Some of the important issues iden-
tified by the HDC for the historic dis-
trict were streetscaping, safety, sig-
nage, amenities, traffic/parking,
education, neighborhood conserva-
tion, city maintenance, family enter-
tainment and, outreach with other
Cities. Thamm also suggested adding
an "S.O.S." category for historic struc-
tures that are in danger of decline,

HEATHER A. PERiY
News-Leader
After a battle with breast cancer
nearly left her homeless because of
mounting medical bills, Chrissy
Branch channeled her frustration into
creating an organization to help oth-
ers facing the same situation.
Working as a bartender before her
illness, Branch said the chemo she
faced after her cancer diagnosis inade
her so ill, she could barely carry on.
Without health insurance, the
mounting bills seemed to increase
every' day. The worry from her tenu-
ous financial situation combined with
the physical toll ~from the chemo was
often overwhelming.
"I tried working and cleprning hous.


and radiation treatmentt"
"We work closely with medical pro-
fessionals in Nassau County to deter-
mine those who are in need of our
services. We hope to make life easier
for them as they endure the long and
often uncomfortable treatment need-
ed to survive this deadly disease."
Nassau Goes Pink extends a com-
passionate hand to those referred by
local physicians and the Nassau
County Health Department as being
the most in need.
"~We will more or less adopt them.

have pain and nausea meds. People

so sick from the chemo, I don't know
how I did it at times."
When she arent for chemo treat-
ments, Branch. noticed that others
were going through the same thing.
"Chemo is a long, drawn-out
process. Some will never make it back
if they are all alone and cannot get
help. We started this organization to
keep Nassau County Xesidents who


are enduring chemo or radiation from
going homeless. We hope to raise
enough money to make a real differ-
ence in .this community. So~far, the
response to oitr organization has been
Overwhelming."
The stated goal of NSassau Goes

is to "assist cancer patients in Nassau

"How are we going to offset
the overtime?" he asked.
Young said he could pro-
mote fiefighters Feb. 1, after
the results of an 'engineer's
qualificatio~n test were ~finalized.
"I don't want you tb paint
yourself into cornerer"
Holloway said. ."... I'm not

do, but the last thing I want to
do is get it implemented and
then have to change it." -
"It doesri't make a whole ot

torn have to pedal twice iis fast,"
Boyle said. He reiterated his
position that the promotions
and hiring should happen at
the same time.
"Is it going to cost more
moneyi Yes," -he said. "But
we're talking about health and
safety issues here."
Commissioner Walter

came too soon after the work-

asked Young.
"No more than it is right

The coqunission agreed to
discuss the issue further at its

There w~ere 83 homeless adults, 73 school-
children and nine children under age 5 tallied
as homeless during this ~year's ~one-day local
count on Jan'. 25. '
"These numbers are more than double the
2009 numbers," reported Dani' Gammel, pregii-
derit of the Coalition for the Homeless of Nassau
County,.the group that organizes thl count
"Because it's so difficult to find the homeless in
rural areas such as ours, we know that the real
numbers are even higher."
Each year, the nationwide count attempts
to take a "snapshot" of the number and needs
of the homeless on a specific day. According to
Pam Lee, thisyear's count coordinator and sec-
retary of the coalition, 26 trained volunteers
fanned out throughout the county to find home
less lieople living in campsites, woods and in
cars. Information was -also provided by area
service providers. .
In addition,. Melissa Silva-lane of the office
of intervention and prevention ~of the Nassau
County School Board reported that of the stu-
dents identified as being homeless, 10 were in
emergency/transitional shelters, two in camp-
grounds and 61 were doubled-up/living with


relatives. (
The numbers of hoineless counted this yea
is more than double the 2008 numbers when 38
homeless adults were counted anhd 32 school-
children were identified.
Of the 100 homeless adults, 48 responded to .
a survey developed by Relsearch Programs and
Services.of the Utniversity of North Florida.
The top fivre needs cited by the respondents
were~ housing, food, financial assistance, med-
ical assistance and jobs and job counseling. .
"People's needs are basic and understand-
able," said Gamimel. "rhe3 want what people
everywhere want: affordable housing, food,
medical care and jobs."
The coalition is the sole organizationi~that
tracks homeless numbers in Nassau County. It
also initiated' anid continues tb support the
Interfaith Dinner Network, which serves din-
ners to the homeless and those in need at Hope
House/Salvation Army, and operates a 'cold
night shelter that opens at the Church of Christ
in Fernandina Beach when nighttime temper-
atures drop to 40 degre~es. For questions about
the coalition or any odf its programs, contact
Gammel at 261-8081. .

Ideas to implement the plan ~
included a special taxing dis-
trict, grants, incentives such as
an awards program, a historic
district trust fund and increase ;
of information. availability
including television, the city
website and local newspapers.
Thamnm suggested that,
once a draft of the plan is put
together and approved by city
commissioners, the group
could contact local colleges and
.universities to execute it. The
five-year historic district plan,
.she said, could be an appropri-
ate project for urban planning
and design and other master's
program students.
"We don't have a lot of peo-


ple sitig around with extra
time to do this,"' Thamm said.
"Trhis would be of mutual ben-
elit (to the college and the city)
and it wouldn't necessarily~ cost
the city anything."
SThamm also suggested the
city could offer a design com-
petition with awards.
SOther groups the HD'C list-
ed that could be involved in the
project were the Florida league

social service groups, volun-
teer groups, business owners,

Service to purchase the old post
office in downtown before the
city manager intervened and
recommended surveying the
ramifications. The cost of reno-
vations could be several million
Times more than the $1 pur-
chase price (with bond issues
and grants as the suggested
ways of paying for it). Also, the
fold of future projects, are a new
city library as vi~ell as the old
First Baptist Church building.
SThe list of actionable ideas
does not stop there. The city
also considered changing its
charter and its election process;
tried to stop happy huckster
Felix from peddling his wares in
downtown; deterred an Atlanta
developer from investing sev-
eral million dollars into'lavish
condominiums and townhouses
along the downtown wagter~front.
and increased property taxes
during a difficult period that hiz.
tory will remember as "The.
Great Recession."
Whew. At least cityi officials
are not sitting on their hands
or their laurels. But is the
change for the sake of change,
or for the public good?
Sometimes, yYy and federal
officials are not biting off more
than they can chew, and digest.

Steve Nicklas You wonder if
the agenda is
not already decided.
But there is a lot more going
on than just the golf course or
the marina (where you have to
look hard to find the $3 million
. worth of improvements already
put into place prior to the new
management firm arriving).
To raise more ~funds, city offi-
cials have increased recreation
fees and'proposed new storm-
water fees, while weighing park-
ing fees 1 before running head-
first into public backlash. They
have put into place a noise ordi-
Snance trumpeted by a business
owner no longer in business.
They were set to enter an
agreement with the U.S. Postal


While the federal govern-
ment is racing and careening
down a highway of change at
an alarming pace, we are fol-
lowing a similar course here. .
It's like a stock car being
pulled along by the draft of the
pack. Fernandina city officials
are driving the local car in this
case, keeping up in their own
ways with federal compatriots.
In Washington, D.C., feder-
al officials .appear to want
reform for the sake of reform.
There are health care reforms
and energy reforms and cap-
and-trade reforms and financial
regulatory reforms:' And for
~extra measure, throw in a $700
billion stimulus package as well
as copious lower-level initiatives,
The changes on a locallevel
have likewise been over-
whelming. You wonder if both
federal and city officials should
take a breath and a break and
let things settle a bit.
The latest movement from
city officials is to explore priva-
tizing the <;ity golf course. This
follows the city's hiring of a pri-
vate ~firm to manage the down-
town marina.
With the golf course a
longtime jewel for the city the
issue is not as much exploring

than are neighborhood "mom

Apartments are the only
sector with funding readily
available for ownership trans-
fer, as a direct result of the will-
ingness of Fannie Mae,
Freddie Mac and Housing and
Urban Development to provide
financing for such properties,
he said.
Apartments continue to be
the strongest segment of the
market, with expectations for
occupancy increasing dramat-
ically as people continue to
lose their homes, Becker said.
"Because foreclosures have
had such an adverse effect on
homeownership and people
have to live somewhere, there
is no shortage of folks in the
market to rent," he said.
Until the backlog bf hous-
ing foreclosures has been
reduced, the outlook for prices
for new single-family homes is
pessimistic, Becker said.
Respondents expect prices to
rise at a rate slowet'than infla-
tion or to remairi at present
levels in the near future, he
said.
"I think it's going to be a
'wait and see what happens'
type of year, but problems with
unemployment and ~financing
wiill continue to weigh us
down," he said.
The Sunshine State's
unhealthy real estate picture
places it in the company of
such problem-prone states as
.Nevada and California, with
their hiigh foreclosure rates,
Becker said. "Florida is still
competing with the top of the
worst and it's likely to stay that
way," hesaid.


L~liv~ersity ofFlorida
GAINESVILLE -
Uncertainty continues to
plague Florida's bleak real
estate outlook in the latest
University of Flor~ida quarter-
ly survey, with fears that stag-
nant financial markets, rising
unemployment and another
round of foreclosures could
make things worse in 2010.
"Our respondents report
that we will continue to see
increasing vacancies and
decreasing rents throughout
most property types," said
Timothy Becker, director of
UF's Bergstrom Center for
Real Estate Studies. "Oge per-
son summed up the current
situation by saying that'unem-
ployed people don't need office
space, don't shop, don't pay
rent and don't buy houses.'"
'A'dding to the angst is the
unavailability of financing,
Becker said. Respondents con-
tinue to worry about their abil-
ity to refinairce existing mort-
gages coming due, even if they
are able to meet the obliga-
tions right now, he said. -
Compounding the problem
in the housing market is that
many adjustable rate mort-
gages that were taken out ive
to seven years ago must soon
be reset, which could increase
monthly payments and throw
property owners into financial
peril, he said.
"I think we're going to see
more foreclosures coming
down the line because of that
and because of the rising job-
lessness,"lie said. "Ile longer
people are out of work the less
opportunity they have to make
payments on their house."
Florida's unemployment
rate climbed to 11.8 percent in
December, its highest level
since 1975, and there are con-
cerns that it may rise even
higher, Becker said. "Untilwe
start seeing significant job
gains, it's going to be a rough
road to hoe for residential aid
commercial properties," .he








j pay or Neuter "i


said.
-Mortgage refinancing also
stands to increase the number
of foreclosures in commercial
real estate, the weakest sector
of the market, Becker said.
"Many commercial proper-
ty owners can still pay theit
mortgage based on the rents
they collect, but with the terms
of their mortgages ending,
'they will have to figure out
how to get financing, and there
is no financing out there," he
said. "With values continuing
to' decline, the amount 'of
money that banks would be
willing to offer if they did
finance is considerably,1ess
than what is owed on the inort-
gage." 7
On the positive side, the.
survey indicates that private
investors both foreign and
domestic are starting to "kick
the tires" in many markets,
Becker said. In addition,
investor~ expectation for
rettirns is starting to fall to
more realistic levels, helping to
close the spread between bid-
ding and asking prices, he
said.
"'These developments bode
well for the transaction mar-
ket when quality properties
start coming to the market-
place," he said. "Unfortunately,
therd are -few good quality
deals to bid on." -
One trend in the survey is
the growing advantage in the
marketplace of larger national
compariies over smaller
regional and local firms,
.Becker said. Because the big-
ger companies are in a better
position to get financing to
acquire proper ty, they are
more ,positive about the out-
look for their own business

me quite often since I've moved .
to Fernandina Beach. They may
be the only people in history -
who moved out of Florida when they retired,
and I think they've regretted it ever since.
They especially regretted it this winter,
when the average temperature in Kentucky
has been only a degree or two above the
deepj freeze of interstellar space.
I don't blame them. The recent cold snap
here was nothing compared to what other
parts of the country endured, but it was still
almost more than I could bear. The upside is
that my swearing became
more colorful. On the way
to work I'd glance at my
car's temperature readout,
then spend the remainder
of the commute coming up
with new and creative ways
to express my displeasure
wNith the cold. During the
course of one drive, for
NEWS- instance, I used one curse
word aq 4$a a v K an! I
ROOHadjective, a gerund, a sub-
VI~EWS ordinate clause and once,
..ama~zingly, as a semicolon.
Rj~anmit~Al of which is odd, con-
Ryan mith sidering that I grew up, for
the most part, in cold cli- .
mates. I spent much of my childhood in
northern Indiana, a place where the winters
are so cold that between late October and
early April there are actual woolly mam-
moths wandering across the fields. One year
our heat went out and we were forced to
resort to our wood-burning stove for'
warmth a situation made even more diffi- .
cult by the fact that we couldn't locate our
fiewood pile, since it was completely buried
in snow. And that was the first week of
spring. ,
None of that bothered me when I was a
kid. I tromped through a foot of snow on my
way to school without giving it a second
thought. I stayed out playing all day in
weather conditions that today, I'm sure,
would kill me in minutes. I loved winter and
sledding and snowball fights and ~free days
out. of school. Most of all, I loved snow.
Today I hate it. The very thought of snow
awakens in me the same sort of elemental
dread some people feel for vampires or
mummies or in-laws. These days cold weath-
er isn't an excuse to goof off all day. These
days cold weather is just cold.
I blame Florida. When I first moved to
this state as a high-schooler, I swore that I
would not turn into one of those wimps who
griped when the temperature fell below.60.
Within a year, I was one of those wimps who
griped if it fell below 70. .
The warm climate really does thin your
blood. You begin to realize that perpetual
summer has many advantages. My northern
friends don't seem to understand that. When
we talk and I can usually hear their teeth
chattering over the phone they go on and
on about how nice it is to have four distinct
seasons.
"Don't you miss the snow?" they some-
times ask me.
"No," I invariably reply.
"Gee, I'd miss the show," they inevitably
respond. .
"That is because you are an idiot," I \
explain gently.
Snow, while pretty to look at, can be very
unpleasant to live with. It melts and turns
into slush and soaks your shoes and turns a
drive to the grocery into a twisted carnival
of horror. So no, I don't miiss it. I also don't
miss icy roads and sleet and temperatures in
the single digits.
Florida is the place for me. And the fact
that I live in Florida does mean that my
northern friends always get their comeup-
pance for feeling so superior about having .
four distinct seasons.
You see, every so often one of those
friends will call me and talk about how hor-
rendous his day has been due to the terrible
weather where he lives. I'll let him tell me

We should not lose track of what
life: is all about and show a little com-
passion for all our parents and chil-
drep~ in the community that you are
supposed to serve. I had a friend
that donated a plot of landi years ago
to be used for a ball field for the area
children near Sunrise Drive and the
city built a sewage lift station instead
of a ball f ield. Where is the compas-
sioth for our children?
-Your city website states that
"The Parks and Riecreation
Department is committed to enrich-
ing the quality of life through excep-

facilities, while preserving the com

facilities; Recreation Centers; Egans

The Department also offers various
adult and youth sports and activi-
ties, camps, senior programs and
special events."
'So the "fees for service must be
your idea." Please, Mr. City Manager

ashamed of yourself. Drop the idea
of~"fees for service," give the com-

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a
~letter about the sand/gravel roads on
the north end of Tarpon Avenue
around Sixth Street. My wife had
fallen on a street that had not been
graded for months and the rocky
road resulted in her fall.
I want ~to thank the city of
Fernandina Beach for being respon-
sive to the northeast end of Tarpon
where many: roads are not paved.
Several roads, including Sixth Street
off Tarpon, were graded in the last
month and moist of the baseball-size
rocks have been removed. Thank
you for listening and responding.
My wife Nancy, who walks our
dog down these streets three times
a day, also thanks you.

The other day I traveled by Idfe
Flight from Baptist Nassau to Baptist
"downtown."
As I was being whisked out of
our local hospital by the helicopter
staff, a striking memory stands out:
.both of the techs who had been
zooming me around the hallways for
the previous hour called out to me
almost in one voice "Good luck,
Mrs. Powers."
.Remembering my name. That
may seem like a small touch to some,
but it's a huge memory in my heart!
I smile every time I remember.
And how in the world does one
thank Tina, another tech, who
donned a lead jacket so she.could
hold my hands while I was having a
necessary CT scan. (I'm horribly
claustrophobic.)
Add the techs' acts of kindness to
the rest of the extraordinary care I
received from everybody in the
emergency room in the 90-odd min-
utes I was there, and you'll'know
why I never want to move fronts
Fernandina Beach. Ever.
And p.s. If you think you're hav-
ing a stroke, grab ~two aspirin or
whatever amount your doctor rec-
ommends before you even take
time to think. That small act could
make Dr. Forgash's life a lot easier!

Commissioner I read with great
interest the Jan. 22 lead article in
the Newrs-Leader "More firefighters
needed ..." On the surface, Chief
Sam Young makes an emotional and
compelling argunient to expand
Nassau County Fire Rescue, adding
another battalion chief position along
with three more iirelghter positions.
All at a cost estimated to be $250,000
per year in year one.,
Upon further reading, while Chief
Young made statements like crash-
es "overwhelming our resources"
and "we run out of trucks very quick-
ly...," the chief apparently present-
ed absolutely no supporting data,
just an emotional appeal. Further, I
would expect to see benchmarking
from Florida's top rated fire and res-
.cue departments as to how they are
organized and staffed. What does
Sthe ideal organization chart look
like? Just how many chiefs, battalion
chiefs, captains and lieutenants are
required to manage the engi-
neers/paramedics and fielighters?
Avisit to the Nassau County Fire
Rescue website is somewhat con-
fusing. On one page, under,Who We
Serve, it states, "Our organization
i~s comprised of 104 employees." On
Ii anotherr pagea~hnday Personnel; 169
personnel are listed. There is no list-
ing for a battalion chief, although
from the story I gathered there is
:currently one and Young is asking
for another. Again, some confusion.
But all of that said, nowhere-is
there a mention of creative alterna-
tives. One of which is intuitively obvi-
ous. What are the synergies with
Fernandina Beach Fire Rescue? One
immediately comes to mind. The
city department has a complete orga-
nizational structure with a chief and
a division chief (seems redundant),
three captains and three lieutenants.
All to staff and manage two ie sta-
tions. If I where Chief Young, my
number one recommendation to the
commissioners would be to merge
Station 20 on Amelia Island and
Station 70 in O'Neil into the
Fernandina Beach Fire Rescue
department. Clearly FBFR has more
than enough chiefs, captains and
lieutenants to absorb a modest
increase in responsibility.
That move eliminates the need
for a battalion chief for the East Side
of the county and somewhat justi-
fies the overweight hierarchy of the
Fernandina Beach department.
Now, if Chief Young can justify
the addition of three more firefight-
ers by presenting compelling data
to convince county taxpayers, then
.so be it. There is much more work
to be done!

Re: "City to youth leagues: Pay
up,:" Jan. 27. Shame on you! Michael
Czymbor.
To charge a fee for the use of
civic public property to taxpayers
who own this property and their chil-
dren for Parks and Recreation activ-
ities is' absurd! Please, Mr. City
Manager Michael Czymbor, you
should be ashamed of yourself.
Do you charge your wife a usage
fee to drive your car, or wash your
clothes with your automatic washer,
or cook your meals with your stove
or lodge in your home? I think not!
Most of the properties were
donated by our local citizens through
the years with the people con-
structing ball fields and clearing the
land for recreation of our children.
This keeps them off the streets and
out of trouble while developing their
Minds with good sports conduct and
manners. I know you would not want
to take that away from ottr children.


R(11081 IS a
While doing research for a local
patriot group, I became aware of the
growing threat posed by radical
SIslam within the United States. While
I was, of course, well aware of the ter-
rorist threat from the Mideast, I had
previously thought of Islam simply as
a religion.
However, after some research, I
have found that by its very nature,
Islam is a political movement.and it
is advancing a very explicit, radical
agenda right here at home. It threat-
ens our culture and, ultimately, our
very freedom. ~
While there are many peaceful
and law-abiding Muslims who live
in and love the United States, pro-
ponents of radical Islam have
launched an insidious culturaljihad
within our borders. It seems that
radical Islamists are in America not
to assimilate but to dominate.
One of the targets on which Islam
focuses is our schoolchildren.
According to Brigitte Gabriel in her
book ~hey Must Be Stopped, the num-
ber ofmadrasas (Muslim schools) in
America is growing rapidly. These
institutions teach hatred for the
United States, often at taxpayers'
expense. Moreover, there is a major
effort by Islamic ,organizations to
influence our school textbook pub-
lishers, encouraging revisionist his-
tory, glorifying Islam and minimizing
dur Judeo-Christian heritage. I have
seen evidence of this in the American
history book used at Fernandina
Beach High School!
SThe problem also extends to
other areas. The book Muslim Mafra
identifies areas in which radical
Islam is infiltrating our government
and legal systems. Two devout
Muslims, Arif Arikhan and Syria~-
born Kareem Shora, have been
appointed to important positions at
the Department of Homeland '
Security.
Several sources cite Arikhan as
being responsible for derailing inves-
ligations into mosques suspected of.
terrorist activity while he served as
deputy mayor of homeland security
for Los Angeles. Both men are on
record as having hailed jihadists as
"heroes." Are the "foxes guarding
the henhouse?" .
Political correctness is advanc-
ing the cause of radical Islam in the
United States. I believe the Fort
Hood shooter Major Hassan's pro-
motion through the ranks and sub-
sequent act of jihad was most cer-
tainly facilitated by political
correctness.
Incredibly, our laws allow Islamic
extremist training camps to exist
right here in the United States.
According to the documentary
"Homegrown Jihad," two of these
camps are right up the road in
Georgia, one in Commerce, which is
very near the University of Georgia!
Radical Islamists use our ~free and
open society against us in order to
promote their nefarious activities.
I believe that it is time for every
American who loves this country to
educate himself about this very real
and growing threat by radical Islam.
We all need to be thoughtful and bal-
anced, but we must speak up when
we see actions/activities at odds with
our free society and cultural history.
Being politically correct and/or
unaware is a disservice to our line
country. Wake up, America... please!
For those interested in learning
more about the Agenda of Radical
Islam in America, Randy McDaniels
of the national group ACT! For
America will be speaking locally on
Friday., The event is free and will
take place at 7 p.m. at the American
Legion Hall, 626 South Third St.,

suspect or suspects broke into
cabins on the vessels and made
off with various equipment.

SA 23-year-old Fernandina
Beach man woke up in a ditch
on'the side of a Jacksonville
i-oad Jan. 25 after accepting a
ride home from two strangers at
a Yulee party.
According to a sheriff's
office report, the man said he
remembered leaving the party
just before 1 a.m. with a female
and a man named "JTustin," then
woke up later in the'morning
in a ditch on Golfair Boulevard
in Jacksonville with lacerations
to his head and a missing wallet.
The victim said he thought
he was hit with a blunt object,
possibly a blackjack or slapstick,
the report stated.
According to the report, the
victim said he had two shots
and nothing else to drink that
night and remembered telling
"Justin," who was in the pas-
seng~er seat, and the female who
was driving that they were head-
ing' the wrong way when they
gotpn SR 200 west. "Justin" told
the victim, seated in the back
seat of the four-door silver vehi-
cle, that they needed to pick up
a friend, then they would bring '
him home, the report stated.
But they turned onto I-95
south, the report stated, and the
victim said he saw a blackjack or
slapstick on the dash of the vehi-
cle, but never saw, it, in either


suspect's hand.
The victim said the next
thing he knew, he woke up in
the ditch with a small lacera-
tion on his right cheekbone, a
small laceration to the back of
his head, a chipped upper tooth
and scratched elbow and palm,
the report stated.
No suspects were located
and the case is pending further
investigation, the report stated.

life in the park. Now in those
"tree ~fall gaps" young bay
;trees and other trees waiting
patiently in the understory
have their chance at rapid.
development, with more stin
hitting them than before. And
behind the areas of the road
once hidden by mature bay
trees, there are other new
sights to behold. A mature
orange tree, complete with
orange globes, has been in
the park for years, but hid-
den. Now, if you look careful-
ly when you drive down the
road, there it is, ~a beauty to
behold. Maybe it's not a
native plant, but its certainly
an historic one. Who pladlted
that tree in the park anyway
and how long ago?
A bit further down the
inain road, across from the
Willow Pond parking lot, the
old Oil House has for years
been mostly hidden from the
road. Now as you round the
bend, with the red bay trees
dead and gone, it stands out
in scenic splendor, a reminder
of dayis gone by when the bea-
con lights on the island were
su plied with fuel.
In our- own backyard we
have watched the dead bayr
tree saga close at hand. Our
onily red bayi tree~, dihtathe@ '
highlight of our backyard
pine forest, was infected with
ambrosia beetle induced fun-
gus, just like the rest of the
bay trees on our island. Sadly
we watched the laves droop,
then turn brown, then hang-
ing lifelessly on the once.
proud branches: But where
one life ends, others get a :
boost.
As the dead tree stood tall,
and rotting, woodpeckers
found it, and made inroads~on-
the trunk searching for
iosects. Befre very long
another sort of fungths found
the dead tree, and shelf
mushrooms sprouted all
along the trunk; doing their
job of decomposition. As the
,tree branches dried up and
dropped off in our occasional
storms, they added to the
decaying material on the for-
est floor, providing more
mushroom fodder and shelter
for those little critters needl-
ing hiding places to~ weather
our winters.
And just like in Fort
Clinch State Park, new life
was revealed behind the deadi
tree. With no large canopy of
thick evergreen leaves to hide
.it, the mediium sized native
magnolia tree nearby is visi-
ble nowr from our house, a
beautiful tree in its own right,
now with a chance to speed
its growth and claim the open-
ing in the canopy for itself.
So with death comes new
life. Now, instead of bemoan-
ing the loss of our red bay
tree we are fascinated with
the view of succession that
follows. Will the few small red
bay saplings still surviving in

couple of years ago the ini;a-

had no natural defenses
against these exotics, and
nearly all of them succumbled.

is continuing once again and
the landscape is correcting

said in a national media-tele-
conference last week. "And I
think you could make an
argument that Tebow, as a
passer, just in terms of evalu-
ating his potential as a pocket
passer in the NFL, that he
was no better than the fourth-
best here."
Tebow's former team-
mate, WR Riley Cooper, who
SPORTS most expected to pursue a
professional baseball career,
TALH is suddenly abetter pro
prospect, according to draft
JOHN L. boards.
CRAWFORD So what does all of the
... analysis mean? To Tebowi's
chances, absolutely nothing.
While tangible skills like throwing motion,
arm strength, footwork and pocket awareness
are important, they aren't everything. There is
something to say for hard work, leadership,


ever made a bust pick in the first round.
Reggae William~s, Matt Jones, R. Jay Soward
come immediately to mind and Reggie Nelson
and Derrick Harvey are subject to fall into the
"bust" category if they don't improve rapidly.
Not that previous bad picks excuse the
Jaguars ifTebow doesn't pan out on the ~field.
But I'm pretty sure his off-the-field impact
(cough, cough, ticket sales) would make the
potential reward well worth the risk.
I realize Jacksonville is trying to get out of
the business of knee-jerk decision making and
trying to execute a plan that will eventually
give them a shot at playing in the Super Bowl.
But it would be a shame to bypass Tebow just
because of national perception. Because I'd
bet all the change in my pocket "blackout"
would be a term of the past: and those fancy
seat covers would be put into storage if Tebow
became a Jaguar next season.

days. E-mail him questions and comments to
him at flcrawuford727@aol.com.


for two years now: Tim Tebow is
not cut out to be a quarterback in
Wthe National Football league.
Draft guru Mel Kiper was one of the ~first to
insinuate any future the former Heisman
Trophy winner might have on the next level
would likely be as an Hi-back or a tight end.
Draft analyst Todd McShay has been the most
vocal naysayer of late. Their presumptions
were strengthened if not substantiated last
week when several NFL scouts attending the
Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., essentially
deemed Tebow a long shot.
McShay went as far as to say Tebow was in
the bottom half of a group he called mediocre
quarterbacks who played in the Senior Bowl.
"Just looking at him and comparing him to
other mid-level quarterbacks, I mean it's not
(Sam) Bradford (Oklahoma) and (Jimmy)
Clausen (Notre Dame) at the Senior Bowl, it's
Tony Pike (Cincininati), who's the best of the
group and he's a third-round pick," McShay


grit and determination. There is also some-
thing to say for being a winner.
Maybe it's just the Southern homer in me,
having followed Tebow through high school
and for four years at the University of Florida.
But I can't fathom the kid failing.
One team will take a chance on Tebow in
April, whether it: is in the fist or seventh
round of the draft. And that team will have
improved itself, whether or not Tebow plays in
year one or not until year five.
Since we're in an age of throwing out pre-
dictions, here's mine: Tebow will reinvent him-
self and become a Pro Bowl quarterback
someday ...
There has been speculation as to whether
or not the Jacksonville Jaguars will do what it
takes to bring Tebow on board, even if it
means ignoring the scouting reports and tak-
ing him in the first round. The national pundits
would scoff at Jags General Manager Gene
Smith for what would be perceived as a huge
risk, however, it's not like Jacksonville hasn't

How many times did Jack Nicklaus win the
Vardon Trophy for low scoring average?


SOne of the most difficult things for
.L the amateur golfer to adjust to is
S the long putt on the green. Long
putting is a skill that is rarely prac-
ticed and, consequently, whenev-
er we have a very long putt to
attempt, the end result is usually
not what we want. Most amatuers faced with a
long putt automatically go into the thought
process that they need tq smack the-ball to get
it to the hole. This thinking pattern will get you a
three-putt more times than not. When you try to
kill the putt, all of the motion in your putting
stroke comes from the wrist. The ball usually
pops up off \he ground and there is little to no
chance for success. A long putting stroke needs
to be generated by the shoulders with nothing to
do with your wrists.


Through Jan. 31, 2010


Feb. 7. 1960 Arnold Palmer won the inaugur-
al Palm Springs Golf Classic by three strokes
over Fred Hawk~ins. Tournament would one day
become the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, and
Palmer went on to win this tournament a
record five times. Nicknamed "The King," he is
arguably one of golf's most popular stars and
its most important trailblazer because he was
the first star of the sport's television age, which
began in the 1950s.


Phil Mickelson was criticised last week by fellow tour player Scott McCarron -~iC
regarding his use of a pre-1990 Ping i2 wedge with square grooves to exploit a
loophole in a new regulation allowing only V grooves. McCarron told the Sn
Francisco Chronicle, "It's cheating, and I'm appalled Phil has put it in play." The Ping \T-
wedges are allowed by the games rule makers, the United States Golf Association and
Royal & Ancient Golf Club, and approved by the PGA Tour for use in tournaments fol-
lowing a 1993 legal settlement with the club manufacturer that takes precedence over the governing
bodies' new regulations. Mickelson responded following his third round at Torrey Pines and said, "Well,
we all have our opinions on the matter, but a line was crossed, and I just was publicly slandered, and
because of that I'll have to let other people handle that."

up into the flooded trees,
where they are hard to catch.
"My favorite time of year
to go is October to November
or January to February. Don't
worry about bugs, as the
bugs stay in the jungle and
not on the water. The temper-
ature runs in the 90s, with
occasional afternoon rain
showers.
"There are also plenty of
exotic wild birds to see,
including absolutely beautiful
parrots. Monkeys swing in
the trees and wild hogs are
often seen running along the
river banks, while crocodiles
often try to steel your hooked
peacock bass. It's a real
adventure."
Comnrie prefers heavy cast-
ing tackle while filling his
casting reel with 50-pound
braided fishing line. The
braided fishing line is tied
directly to the lure, while dou-
bling the line and using a
palomar knot. Isrge surface
plugs take their share of tro-
phy bass, while the standard
hooks and split rings are
replaced with heavy-duty salt-
water hardware. Heavy jigs
also take their share of pea-
cock bass when found in deep
pools.
Fishermen are treated to a
luxurious mother ship on the
water, called the "Black Water
Explorer." Individual cabins
are air conditioned with pi-i-
vate baths with a dining room
on board for all meals and
daily laundry service.
Peacock bass fishing is
done from a 2(1foot aluminum
boat with stern and bow cast-
ing platforms and pedestal
seats. TypIically two fisher-
men and a guide fish on each
boat Fishing is also catch and
release only. Artificial mounts
can be made from measure-
ments and photos of your
bass when returning home.
Visit www.amazonpeacock-
adventure.com or call (904)

"My guide had just shut
down the 40 hp outboard
motor and turned on the elec-
tric trolling motor to navigate
me and my heavy casting
tackle within casting distance
of a deep jungle shoreline,"
Bruce Cornrie said. "After
years of fishing the Northern
Rio Negro Basin for peacock
bass, I knew well the skills it
would take to hook and play
one of the world's toughest
and most formidable game
fish, the~ colorful peacock
bass."
Comrie made a perfect
cast to the tree overhangs and
began working a Heddon
"Super Spook" surface plug in
an enticing back and forth
swashingg" action when' a real
bruiser of a bass literally
crushed his American-made
plug.
"Once I had set'thelarge
treble hooks firmly into the
tough mouth of that big bass,
I immediately applied full
pressure, in hopes of working
the big bass away ~from the
jungle shoreline. What I did-
n't know at the time was that
2(Apound peacock bass had
literally crushed my lure,
cracking the plug in several
places ~from the front treble to
the rear treble hooks."
Fortunately the strong,
custom saltwater hooks and .
hardware were too much for
the big bass and Comrie was
soon able to land, photograph
and release his colorful pea-
cock bass, a real Amazon
treasure.
The Amazon Riv~er is the
world's largest river, harbor-
ing the world's meanest and
strongest bass, the mighty
peacock bass, which com-
petes with the colorful dol-
phin as the world's most' col-
orful gamefish. My vote
would be cast for the peacock
bass.
Comrie, of Amelia Island,
travels to Brazil's Amazon
River multiple times each


year to tar-
get his
favorite
gamefish,
>eacock
>ass. Comrie
is a local .
avid fisher-
man who
~fishes from
OUTDOORS his 24-foot
-**- Shearwater .
Terylaossbackwater
TenyLacossboat for sea
trout and redfish. However,
his real love for fishing comes
from the tannic-stained
waters of the Amazon River,
where he casts large topwater
plugs for hours on end for
huge peacock bass that have
tipped his fish scales to 25 .
pounds.
Several fishing seasons
ago I had written in the Newrs-
SLeader about one of Comrie's
adventurers to, the Amazon
River. He had hooked a giant
Peacock bass on a large sur-
face plug when the hooked
bass sivam into asubmerged
snag. Comrie's faithful guide'
quickly dove into the snag
and freed the hooked bass
from the submerged tree.
However, once the guide had
uinhooked Comrie's big bass,
the bass began towinlg his
guide down the river,
Eventually the 18-pound
trophy bass tired, allowing
Comrie to land both his pea-
cock bass and fishing guide.
During Comrie's recent
adventure for Amazon pea-
cock bass, Nov. 13-20, his
party caught and released
some 2,000 peacock bass. The
largest weighed 24 pounds,
while his ~fishing party caught
175 peacock bass that
weighed over 13 pounds.
"I would recommend
Avoiding the rainy season,
which normally takes place
during the month of
December," Comrie said.

The North All-Stars, coached by Yulee High School head football coach Bobby Ramsay, second from right with Fernandina Beach High School Coach Ed "Puggy" Brown, defeat-
ed the South All-Stars 21-0 Saturday afternoon in the 2010 Florida High School Shrine Bowl at Mandarin High School. The annual game showcases the area's top high school
seniors and Nassau County was well represented on the winning North Team. FBHS's Tai Alford, left, had an interception and Yulee's Cameron Ponder, right, had four tackles.
Fernandina's Tahj Kimble had 37 yards rushing. Devron Wingard of Yulee and West Nassau's Ronsis.Hern keep a South defender in check, second from left. 441so chosen for
the game were FBHS's Brett Dahl and West Nassau's Cody Baker. "We had a lot more speed than they did and they could not block our defensive front," Ramsjay said. "We got
the wind early and were able to win the field position battle. All the kids from Nassau County did a great job and played well. I was proud of them. It was such a fun group of
players and coaches, to be around and we all had a blast during the week and the game. I really hope that the kids get college opportunities, they dell deserve them, and the
game showcased what they can do on the field."

familiar with Pat Conroy's leg-
endary novels, Lords of
Piscipline, Prince ofTides,
Beach Music and nte Great
Santini, to name a few. His lat-
est is the bestfseller South of

Why would the best-sellinig

PORC'I son.
Pat
Conroy, his
Dickie wife
Anderson Cassandra
King, an ..
accomplished writer herself,


and his daughter, Melissa ,
Conroy, are coming to the
Amelia Island Book Festival.
It is all about family and
friendship. Janis Owens, a
longtime festival favorite, is a
good friend of Cassandra King
and Pat Conroy and encour-
aged the Conroys to make a
commitment. Owens and
King will offer a panel at the ~
festival's Friday Writers'
Workshop and a breakfast
program Saturday to be held

we are a preferred festival

authors. Best-selling author,

appearance this year as
keynote for the sold-out
Lunch With Authors sched-
uled Satuirday. "I have always
wanted to come to Amelia

Amelia Island has become
famous for its variety of festi-
vals which include a film festi-
val, a jazz festival, chamber
music festival and the grand-
daddy of all festivals, the Isle
of Eight Flags Shrimp

they want small-town friendli-


ness, beautiful coastal scenery
and historic ambiance. They
don't want big City crowds and
convention centers.
So come celebrate Amelia
Island and its next festival -

Hi! My name is Abby. I am
a female Cocker Spaniel. I was

going on in her life and wasn't
able to spend the time needed

little sad lately because I am
not used to bemng a kennel
with so many other dogs bark-
ing day and night. A girl can't

mates and get along great
with all of them. I just need a

The Davis Lunchroom was
an African-American owned
and operated business at Ninth
and Date streets in Fernandina
from the 1940's through the
era of segregation into the early
1980's.
When its owner Miss Katie
Davis, who lived next door,
closed the luncheonette doors
.in~the 1980's, it remained as
she had left it. Within the once
lively building a lunchroom
by weekday and a juke joint by
weekend night its player
piano, seat-worn booths, stools
at the counter, glassware on
the shelves, paper fans'on the


tables, remained untouched
and frozen in that earlier time.
In 2005 the property was
sold, and before it was remod-
eled there was a two-week win-
dow to photograph it as it was.
Even those photographs were
lost until recently recovered.
Photographer McKenney-and
current owners Christopher
and Chris Dube Dilon hope to
gather the stories about this
ahbfost lost slice of Fernandina
history.

First Presbyterian Church
will host the first annual Family
Film Festival, with ~free admis-
sion to all screenings and fanu-
ly friendly fun, Feb. 26-28 at
"The Anchor," corner of Sixth
and Centre streets mn downtown
Fernandina Beach.
The series starts with
"Saving God" on Friday, Feb. 26
at 7 p.m. with Ving' Rhames of
"Mission Impossible" and "Pulp
Fiction." An evil drug lord, a
pastor with a criminal record, a
young drug dealer ... action and
suspense! Described as "gritty,
raw, and real."
Saturday at 2 p.m. is "Ilies of
the Field." Wh~it do a stranded
ex-GI and ~five nuns have in com-
mon? Sidney Poitier won an
Oscar for his performance in
this film that also won 11 other
awards and 10 nominations.
Saturday at 7 p.m. is
"'Fireproof"' starring' Kirk
Cameron, a must-see for any-
one married, engaged or dat-
ing. Cameron is stellar as fire-
fighter Caleb Holt who battles
more than flames. A love gone
cold, a seductive coworker and
compelling virtual objects of
desire make for a great plot.
Sunday at 2 p.m. see "Faith
Like Potatoes," a compelling
drama, at times engaging, at
times heart wrenching, at times
light-hearted with a plot set mn
South Africa and based on a true
story. Great performance by
Fran Rautenbach.
