Four candidates have qualified to
be placed on the ballot for a city com-
mission seat to be decided by the
municipal election April 13.

Arlene Filkoff and Chuck Hall. The
winner will succeed Ken Walker, who
was prevented by term limits from

Tip to 70 years



of marriage -



Forgive, forget'


HEATHER A. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
Duke and Mary Walden of Yulee, who fell in love the moment they
met, have shared 70 years of marriage.


The kindest and the happiestpair
Wil find occasion to forbear.
And something every day they live,
To pity, and perhaps, forgive.
William Cowper


HEATHER A PERRY
Nwes Leader
A sk Duke and Mary
Walden the secret of their
70-year marriage and
they'll tell you, "Forgive
and forget."
The two rmet at a dance on Tybee
Island, Ga., at which each had come
with someone else. Duke says he
knew as soon as h'e set eyes on her
that she was the one. Mary agrees
that it was love at first sight.
"He told the fellow I was with to
leave," says Mary, who admits that
while she foundthis "a bit frighten-
ing," she didn't put up any fuss about
it.
"We never dated anyone else
after that and two years later, we ran
off and got married."
"Actually, we were married three
times," she confides.
"First we ran off and got married
and then Mother said that wouldn't


do, so we had a church wedding at
First Presbyterian Church and then
later on, we got married again at
Hilton Head."
They've lived in Yulee five years.
Duke Walden says the key to
healthy living is to eat right, sleep
right and live right, Even at 90 years
of age, he rides a stationary bicycle
every day for 30 minutes.
"We have a little Jack Daniels
with water and ice and a little lemon
every evening, and our doctor says
that's fine."
The couple ran a Gulf station in
Oceanway for many years. Mary
kept the books and Duke took care
of the rest.
These days, leisure pursuits for
the happy couple include fishing and
gathering oysters at Fort George
and spending time with their four
children, eight grandchildren, 16
great-grandchildren and one great-
great-grandchild.

Crist seeks to rally



local Republicans


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County Republi-
cans gathered at the Amelia
Island Plantation Conference
Center Friday for their
20th annual Lincoln Day
Dinner. Gov. Charlie Crist,
who delivered the keynote
address, spoke about the
importance of party unity,
highlighted his accomplish-
ments in office, talked about
his candidacy for the U.S.
Senate and took a few pot-
shots at the current adminis-
tration.
"Northeast Florida is pret-
ty important," Crist said. "I
know it's important to you. It's
important to me too. That's
why I'm here tonight. It's a
privilege to be with you, and a
privilege to talk about our great
Republican Party."
Crist maintained that
President Barack Obama's
agenda would prove unpopular
enough to push Republicans
to the ballot box in droves this
year. "If we don't win this year,
shame on us. The president of
the United States is helping us
more than we could ever help
ourselves," he said. "He has
galvanized our party, and we
will win."
However, he cautioned,
winning at the polls wouldn't
mean anything if Republicans
didn't make good on their
promises to the electorate.
"You have to mean what you
say and say what you mean,"
he said. "Trust is sacred, and
as our party moves into this
year, that's what we need to
remember."
Crist also highlighted his
successes in office. ,

"When I got elected gover-
nor, our state budget was
$73 billion. After a few years,
we slashed the budget by $7
billion-," he said. "... We kept
the budget balanced and I
signed into law the biggest
tax cut in the history of
Florida.
"... Right now, tonight, this
year for the first time since I
have been governor, we have
more money coming into our
treasury than less," he added.
"And .it's not just a little more
- it's $2.4 billion. ... Things
have stabilized in America, and
we're coming back."

that the stalled national econ-
omy would rebound soon but
also stressed the importance of

"... We have problems,
and we have challenges, but
we'll get through them," he
added. "If America is a

Florida is at the mountaintop,
because we're the best of the

County to raise rates



for heaviest water users


RYAN SMITI I
News Leader
The Nassau County Com-
mission unanimously adopted
Monday a resolution approving
a new conservation rate
structure for Nassau-Amelia
Utilities.
NAU provides water utility
services to the south end of
Amelia Island.
While the average water util-
ity customer should see no
change in water and sewer bills,
heavy water users will see an
increase, according to County
Coordinator Ed Sealover.


"What the county is doing
is adopting a water conserva-
tion rate program that has been
suggested by St. Johns River
Water Management District,"
Sealover said Thursday. "For
the 'most part, people will not
see an increase on their water
bills. But people who are heavy,.
heavy users of water and I
don't mean bathing or washing
clothes; I'm talking about irri-
gation of lawns then you will
pay more."
According to Sealover, cus-
tomers who don't use much
water will actually see their bills
go down slightly. Customers


using 5,000 gallons per month
or less should see a $1 to $5
decrease in their monthly bills.
Average users may see a few
cents' decrease.
Those who use 11,000 gal-
lons or more per month, how-
ever, will see marked increase
as usage goes up anywhere
from around 99 cents for 11,000
gallons to more than $35 for
30,000 gallons.
The resolution adopting the
new rate structure will take
effect after approval by the
Florida Secretary of State's
Office.

April is Water Conservation Month


PAIATKA Tle St. Johns
River Water Management
District's Governing Board has
approved a proclamation desig-
nating April as Water
Conservation Month to encour-

expanded watering restrictions
to help ensure that water used
for irrigation is used efficiently.
The restrictions include limit-
ing irrigation to one day a week
during Eastern Standard Time
and two days per week during
Daylight Saving Time. Other
district conservation initiatives
include:
Permit conditions that
Require all permit holders to use
water efficiently
The development.of water

importance of efficient water
use to adults and children, and

classes

offered

Saturday
Baptist Medical Center Nas-
sau now offers certified Diabe-
tes Self Management Education
(DSME) classes at the hospi-
tal on Saturdays for those who
find it difficult to attend during
the week, says Mary Snyder,
registered dietitian and coordi-
nator of Baptist Nassau's certi-
fied DSME program.
The four-part programs
include a general overview of
diabetes causes, complicatiofis
and treatments, and steps
patients can take to reduce or
control some of the effects of
the disease. Attendees learn
about monitoring blood glu-
cose, blood sugar highs and
lows, proper diabetic diets, meal
planning, the importance of
weight control and exercise.
Saturday programs are the
same as those held weekdays
except Snyder teaches the
Saturday programs alone. She
and Katie Aquino, RN,, teach
weekday classes together, usu-
ally on Tuesday afternoons.
'We've been offering these
certified programs for close to
one year so people can get the
information they need locally,"
Snyder says. "We like to keep
classes small to allow for dis-
cussion. Once people get to
know one another, they find an
avenue for support"
Since proper diet is essen-
tial to living successfully with
diabetes, each enrollee may
bring a family member who
assists with meal preparation.
Many insurance plans cover
part or all the cost of this pro-
gram and a physician referral is
required. For scheduling, call
Snyder at 321-3700.

Assistance (VITA) program is a
free service provided by a part-
nership with the IRS and the

children alone in a vehicle.
Unfortunately, though it is only

no more children die from heat stroke
when they are forgotten in cars, safety
experts and child advocates remind par-

sleeping children before leaving a vehi-
cle.
Between 1998 and 2009, 445 children
died from heat stroke because they
were unattended in vehicles that became
too hot for them to survive. "A child's
body heats up three to five times faster
than an adult's and unattended children
have no way of protecting themselves in a
hot vehicle" says Cynthia Dennis,
RN, Safe Kids Northeast Florida coordi-

NCCDC: Improving


community for decades


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
In July 1979, a group con-
cerned with saving the former
Peck High School met at~the
Elm Street Recreation Center to
discuss plans for refurbishing it
and putting it to good use.
Those plans galvanized when
the group formed the Nassau
County Community Develop-
ment Corp.
Peck High School was built
in 1927 by African-American
educator Dr. W.H. Peck and
served as an all-black high
school from 1927 through 1968.
After integration took its stu-
dents to Fernandina Beach
High School, the building
declined.
Those in the African-
American community, with
NCCDq leading the way, felt
Peck High was too important to
be diminished in this way.
On Sept. 21, 1979, the state
of Florida issued a charter to
the Nassau County Community
Development Corp., which list-
ed as its mission "to promote an
improved quality of life through
the acquisition and develop-
ment of properties; to prevent
loss and promote preservation
of deteriorating communities
and properties; and to engage
in other related activities for.
the welfare and benefit of the
citizens of Nassau County."
One of the first initiatives
the group tackled was the open-
ing of the Head Start program
in three wings of the former
high school in June 1982.
The federally funded pro-
gram breathed new life into the
building as children of low-
income families were prepared

30 percent growth in

These numbers have grown
from 85,930 in January 2008 to
125,825 in January 2010.
I will be working with
Secretary George Sheldon
and the Department of
Children & Families to look
for ways to improve the food
stamp program to eliminate
waste and misuse of the bene-
fits. One suggestion from a
local grocery store manager
was to limit the benefits so
people cannot use them to
purchase higher dollar items
like wedding cakes and premi-
ums cuts of steak. I agree we
should ensure that the taxpay-
er-funded food stamp program
makes available food items
that allow for nutrition but
does not provide what many
would consider "luxury"
items. As I look for solutions
in this area, your ideas and
comments hre critical to shap-
ing this discussion.
One of the topics garner-
ing a lot of attention is what to
do with Medicaid Reform.
The Florida Medicaid
Program continues to grow as
more people qualify for the
benefit under the current pro-
gram. Here in Nassau County
we have been under a
Medicaid reform pilot project
since 2005. The 8,000
Medicaid recipients in Nassau
County must be enrolled in
one of two HMOs or managed
care plans. The encounter
data for the Medicaid Reform
pilot is now collected and in
the hands of the state but no
analysis has been done, so it
is impossible to know whether
the medical loss ratios would
reflect this was a good deal for
the consumer and taxpayer or
a good deal for the managed
care companies. We are work-
ing to get this data and will
keep you posted.


The need to control the ris-
ing cost of Medicaid has been
a key focus of Speaker Desig-
nate Dean Cannon and his
Select Committee on Strategic
and Economic Planning. You
can watch many of the presen-
tations on Medicaid and the
options now being considered
at www.myfloridahouse.gov.
Just go to Councils and
Committees to find the Select
Committee on Strategic and
Economic Planning. The
video archives will be helpful
in getting you up to speed.
I have proposed my own
plan for the rural counties in
HB 933. We are working to
get the plan heard in commit-
tee and we hope to ensure
that as leadership plans
ahead, that they include the
special needs of small rural
counties.in a manner that
reflects our needs. .
We are keeping a close eye
on the A1A overlay project.
Originally Florida DOT had
reported the bids for the proj-
ect would be opened on
March 9. This week, we were
informed that the bids were to
be opened on March 16. -
According to the project time-

have been told that the fund-

The budget will continue to
be the primary focus for mem-
bers. The committees are
working to hear bills right
now but many bills have not
been placed on agenda. Of the
880 bills that have been filed
in the Florida House of
Representatives many will die


without being heard in com-
mittee, others will be heard in
committee and then die some-
where in a committee of refer-
enc& and others will pass all
their assigned committees
and will die on the calendar
before being taken up on the
floor. It is much easier to stop
a bill than it is for one to be-
come law. Many member bills
have yet to be heard and it is
likely that many good ideas
will not be heard because the
focus is squarely on the econ-
omy and the budget.
One of the nice traditions
in the Florida House'of
Representatives is being able
to recognize special guests
. who travel to Tallahassee to
visit and participate in our
state government. Whenever
you are in Tallahassee,'please
make time to spend in the
House Gallery and watch the
Florida House work. If you
call ahead and let me know
when you plan to be in the
Gallery, I would be honored to
recognize your group. It is a
tradition that is very Southern
and I appreciate the chance to
extend this hospitality to the
many people who make our
community a great place to
live and raise a family.

Publisher action of jobs for our resi-
dents.
One local group, the Nassau County
Economic Development Board (NCEDB),
is doing just that.
Recently the NCEDB unveiled a pair of
new marketing brochures utilized to attract
"new sources of trade and investment" from
abroad and throughout the United States to
Nassau County. The eight-page, full-color
marketing piece is impressive. Nassau
County's story is told with photos arid text
presented in seven languages English,
Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese,
Canadian French, Brazilian Portuguese and
Korean. The brochures were partly funded
by an international trade grant from
Enterprise Florida, Inc.
Steve Rieck, NCEDB's executive direc-
tor, says, "We believe that the countries
where those languages are spoken will be
the new sources of trade and investment for
Nassau County well into the future." He
also emphasized the continued importance
of courting companies within the United
States.
The NCEDB has targeted numerous
industries to pitch the attractiveness of
Nassau County: advanced manufacturing;
aviation and aerospace; clean energy; distri-
bution and logistics; finance, insurance and
real estate services; information technolo-
gy; life sciences; and corporate headquar-
ters round out the list of target categories.
I applaud the NCEDB on their new
diversified approach to securing the future
of Nassau County these efforts can make
a difference.

VIEWPOINT/WILLIAM GOWER/BYS


Setting the

Dear Nassau County Boys & Girls Clubs
supporters, volunteers, parents, and friends,
By now you have undoubtedly seen the neg-
ative publicity in the major media concerning
Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA).
Several senators have questioned expenses and
executive compensation of the BGCA, since
this national nonprofit receives millions of dol-
lars from federal funding. In fact, BGCA nation-
ally receives nearly 40 percent of its revenue Go
from the federal government and stands to gain
more from a bill pending in the Senate.
Roxanne Spillett, president and chief execu- Na
tive of BGCA, earned nearly $1 million in 2008. poi
That includes a base salary of $361,000, a '
$150,000 incentive and nearly $478,000 in bene- Gir
fits, expenses, and contributions to a deferred reg
retirement plan, according to a spokesperson
from BGCA. and
Ken Berger, president and chief executive
of Charity Navigator, a watchdog group, said pro
"leaders of large non-profits should earn corn- the
petitive salaries." Charity Navigator states that to i
the average compensation for executives at in o
groups with more than $100 million in annual pro
revenue is $460,000, including deferred com- pra
pensation. However, when referring to Spillett, mu
Berger goes on to say, "When you.have some- hay
one who is making double that afbunt.it defies wo
logic. It damages public trust." In addition, the in R
senators question BGCA expenses for travel, unt
conferences and meetings and'lobbying. adi
At the present time, we have heard no offi- exp
cial comment on the allegations' and are waiting exp
for the promised response from BGCA on or Foi
before March 29. While we fully support rigor-
ous oversight of all Boys & Girls Clubs opera- & (
tions, we also know it is important to hear both ser
sides of an issue, as well as fully understand dire

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Can'tsteal our pride
How sad I am to write this letter.
Usually my "letters to the editor"
are full of praise for this island I
love and the wonderful people who
live here. Not this time.
Eileen Shannon Moore is one of
those "worker bees" who is always
finding ways to improve this place
we live. "Flowering Fernandina," a
way to make our downtown more
beautiful with colorful baskets hang-
ing from each of the lampposts was
her latest project and she gathered
other caring people in the commu-
nity to help.
Traveling through Europe, many
of the small villages are decorated
with flower baskets, which add so
much to the charm of the commu-
nity. Goodness knows, Fernandina
needs help in this economy attract-
ing tourists to our quaint village. It
sounded like greatidea to deco-
iraui d(1w1 ntuwn with a profusion of
flowers and the committee enlist-
ed the merchants and the city's help
with irrigation while soliciting indi-
viduals in the community to pur-
chase and plant the baskets. I. was
one of the ones who thought it was
a great idea. I couldn't wait to get
started on my basket.
The special basket itself is not
inexpensive, and then there is the
selection of "frost-proof plants to
carry us through this cold winter -
the pansies and cabbages were so
colorful and finally there is the
challenge of planting them and nur-
turing them before the basket finds
its home on a Centre Street lamp-
post. I was delighted that mine
would be on the corner near the
Farmers Market and couldn't wait
to see it on display.
' And then Eileen called to say
that my basket had been stolen -
mine and seven others! Quickly
they secured the remaining ones


with bicycle locks, only to find one
hanging from its lock the next
morning. What a sad commentary.
I was so disappointed not only for
my expense and effort but most of
all for the statement it made for our
community.
We do live in a beautiful caring
place but, unfortunately, there are
always a few who will try to destroy
it. We're determined, however, that
a few cannot destroy "Flowering
Fernandina." We need help in con-
tinuing the effort to make our com-
munity more beautiful. Maybe you
would also like to get involved and
help the committee on this project
What can we do now? (Contact
Eileen Shannon Moore at Eileen's


Art and Antiques on Centre Street.)
It will be exciting to have spring
finally arrive and hope that we can
see flowers adding beauty to each
lamppost downtown. And shame on
those who stole the baskets. We
cannot allow them to steal our pride
in our charming village.

local educators took the lead on his project,
but it is my conviction that we must walk a
careful line as we move forward in establish-
ing protocols for our education.
Mr. Schleicher's testimony also revealed
that most other successful countries, while uti-
lizing national standards, give local schools a
greater degree of freedom from regulation
than the American system currently does.
So long as federal taxpayer money goes to
schools across the country, the government is
right to demand accountability and a return on
the investment. But when federal control
threatens to stifle the creativity and productivi-
ty of our local schools, we must step back and
return power to our communities.
Our children's future, our country's future,
must never be a political pawn in the govern-
ment's all-too-familiar gambit for more control.
We must equip our schools, our teachers and
our children with all the.resources they need
to lead academically the way we know we can,
the way we have done in the past. We must
equip local school districts not only with finan-
cial resources but with an investment of trust
and authority, so that our schools can focus on
the business of education, not bureaucracy.

Winter is breeding time in

of two breeding seasons a

Squirrel to keep us updated.
Ms: Shelly had the good
fortune to have landed last
summer in the loving arms of
artist Sandra Baker-Hinton.
Just a young tad of a thing,
Shelly needed to be fed a milk
formula with a syringe, and
was provided with a nice com-
fortable cage in Sandra's art
studio downtown when not
nestling in the folds of
Sandra's clothes.
But even the most depend-
ent little gal finally grows up,
and seeks new adventures
beyond a safe enclosed envi-
ronment. Now wanting to
roam, Shelly was no longer
content to view life from her
secure cage. When loose, the
art objects in the studio were
not safe from Shelly's antics
and in her enthusiasm about
climbing her claws were mak-
ing inroads on Sandra's skin.
With some trepidation,
Sandra eventually released
Shelly in her backyard. Ever

when she returned, she was
fatter and sassier than usual,
and also just a bit wilder. Now
when she approaches Sandra
for her pecan, she grabs the
pecan and dashes off to a
nearby tree to eat it.
And that's not the only
change Sandra has noticed in
her wild pet. Ms. Shelly
Squirrel seems to be a Mrs.
Her abdomen started to thick-
en in a suspicious manner and
she started spending more
time away from the yard. On
the most recent sighting
Shelly Squirrel is thinner in
the middle again, and her
small teats show signs of wear
and tear.
Sandra has not yet found
Shelly's nest, but it seems
likely that there is one, and
that Shelly is one of those pre-
cocious young lady squirrels
who start their own family
when barely six months old.
No doubt all that loving care
and the ready supply of calo-
rie-rich pecans speeded along
her development.
If all goes well within a
few weeks just maybe a few
smaller squirrels will join
Shelly at the squirrel feeder,


learning to trust Sandra to
give them those tasty south-
ern pecans.
In our own yard we don't
know our resident squirrel
personally like Sandra knows
Shelly, but we do recognize
her day to day as shegleans
sunflower seeds from our
feeders. Now that we've pin-
pointed the nest in a highly
visible area at the edge of our
woods, we, too, will be keen
to see what happens next.
And now that we have
learned more about squirrels
from Shelly and Sandra, no
longer do we begrudge our
backyard squirrels those
spilled sunflower seeds. In a
change of heart, I'm even
starting to put pecans out too
for our unnamed little lady
squirrel who has chosen our
backyard for its home. As
long as they don't invade our
attic, thanks to Shelly and
Sandra, squirrels now hold a
respected place in our yard at
last.

Georgia man drowns


at city moor

JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

Fernandina Beach Police are investigating
the Saturday evening drowning of a Brunswick,
Ga., man who fell from a small dingy while
attempting to board a sailboat anchored in the
mooring field off shore at the city marina.
The body of 69-year-old Joe Nate Massey was
found floating face down near shore at 231 N.
Front St., about a mile northeast of the mooring
field, at 9:45 p.m., according to a police report.
According to authorities, Massey and a friend,
Ronald Riley, 51, of St. Simons Island, Ga., visit-
ed Fernandina Beach for dinner and planned to
stay the night on the sailboat. After dinner, as
they arrived at the boat in the dingy, Massey, who
according to the report could not swim and was
not wearing a flotation device, fell into the water.
According to reports, Riley attempted to help
Massey, but also fell into the water.
Riley was able to hold onto the dingy, while
Massey disappeared under the water, authorities
said. Riley told police he searched for Massey for


ing field

about 10-15 minutes without success before
going back to the city marina for help.
Police said a 911 call was received at 8:50
p.m. from a couple staying on a sailboat at the
marina, who reported hearing a man yelling for
help while he approached the city docks in a
small dingy.
After the couple helped Riley dock at the
marina, he told them to contact his wife, the
report stated. The woman told police that Massey
did not like boats, but he and Riley were close
friends, the report stated.
Fernandina police searched the area with
help from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Air
Support Unit, the Nassau County Sheriff's Office
Marine Unit and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation, the release stated.
Massey's body was taken to the Jacksonville
Medical Examiner's Office where an autopsy
will be performed. City detectives are awaiting
its findings to determine the cause of death, but
according to the release, "the death appears to
be an accidental drowning."

Baptist Health staff travel


to Haiti to aid quake victims


Haiti's devastating earth-
quake on Jan. 12 created a'
tremendous need for medical
services. Nurse Cindy Hodge
of the gastroenterology lab at
Baptist Medical Center Nassau,
was one of the physicians and
staff affiliated with Baptist
Health who traveled to Haiti to
help.
On Jan. 20, Hodge's team of
eight people brought 1,000
pounds of supplies to a clinic
where they treated at least 700
people. Gay Moore, an bmer-
gency department nurse at
Baptist Nassau, collected money
from employees in the Emer-
gency Department and Lab for
the mission. The GE Lab also
donated clothing for orphans.
"The trauma was really
heavy, but it was encouraging to
see the wounds improving at
the end of the week," Hodge
said.
Other Baptist Heath affiliat-
ed physicians and nurses
who have helped in Haiti"
include:
Doug Johnson, a radiation
oncologist at Baptist Cancer
Institute. Johnson had already
'planned a-trip to the-Dominican
'Republic nilh the Flying
Physicians Association when
the earthquake struck.
"We were on the horn imme-
diately to see how we could be
of service," he said.
The group worked with the
U.S. State Department and the


United Nations to bring sup-
plies to the Fond Parisian Field
Hospital in Haiti, set up by Dr.
Hiliarie Cranmer from Har-
vard's Department of Global
Health and Population.
On Feb. 7, Johnson and
other physicians from around
the nation flew 24 private air-
craft loaded with supplies to
Okeechobee.
The next day they all flew to
the Dominican Republic, where
the 95 boxes of supplies weigh-
ing nearly 1,500 pounds were
flown by a UN helicopter to the
hospital.
"We can feel secure that our.
supplies got to where they need-
ed to be and were exactly what
the clinic needed," Johnson
said. Baptist Health provided
some of the supplies.
Richard Picerno, ortho-
paedic surgeon with Jackson-
ville Orthopaedic Institute;
Randhi Daniel, medical assis-
tant, JOI; nurses Brenda Outlaw
and Tracy Rigdon, Baptist
South; and Meridith Farrow, an
obstetrician who practices at
Baptist Beaches. They were
part of a team of 12 people who
went to Haiti Feb.' 2-11 under
'the auspices of the Southern
Baptist Convention. They stayed
at a Southern Baptist
Convention home and worked
at the National Hospital, a med-
ical tent compound created after
the earthquake, where they
triaged and treated up to 400


patients a day with multiple
types of medical problems.
"A huge part of it was psy-
chological, talking with people
who had lost their entire fami-
lies," said Picerino. "It was life-
changing for us, just seeing the
people and hearing their sto-
ries."
John Von Thorn, an
orthopaedic surgeon with JOI.
He went to Haiti the last week in
January with a Presbyterian
Ministries of Haiti team who
helped patients at a general hos-
pital in Port-Au-Prince. Von
Thorn. provided non-surgical
orthopaedic care and dressing
changes.
"Everyone there has to jump
in and do what needs to be
done," Von Thom said. "It's real-
ly a worldwide response, with
people from all over the world
, and the United States. It was
quite an amazing sight to see
all these people helping out."
Nurse Toni James,
Inpatient Adult Behavioral
Health at Baptist Downtown.
James left Feb. 27 for her sec-
ond trip to Haiti since the earth-
quake and her sixth since 2002.
From Jan. 21-29, she went with
the Spanish River Church iri
Boca Raton. The group lived in
tent cities in Port-Au-Prince, set-
ting up clinics and helping
where directed by a Haitian pas-
tor.
"It was the greatest bless-
ing, sleeping out under the stars
with everyone else," James
says. "We said, thank you Lord,
this is a great blessing to be
here, to serve You, and to iden-
tify even more with what the
Haitian people are going
through."

'Senior Sleuths'


to 'right wrongs'


for older victims


The Fernandina Beach
Police Department is looking
for active volunteers who are
ready and willing to "right
some wrongs" as "Senior
Sleuths."
Chief Jim Hurley is head-
ing up the program in part-
nership with the Seniors vs.
Crime Project, a special project
of the Florida Attorney
General. Volunteers will work
out of the police department to
right civil wrongs done to sen-
iors by unscrupulous contrac-
tors, repairmen, car dealer-
ships and similar businesses
or individuals, many of which
are not located in Nassau
County.
Law enforcement is regu-
larly called upon to review sit-
uations in which seniors are
being taken advantage of
because of issues related to
advanced age. While these
scams are not always a viola-
tion of criminal law, a civil rem-
edy is often a viable solution.
Police officers are usually pow-
erless to help in civil situations
involving products or service
contracts.
Police officers are left to
refer seniors to small claims
court or to a lawyer. Because
the process can appear con-
fusing and cumbersome, and a
positive outcome unlikely,
many seniors will not follow
through and will remain vic-
timized by a wrongful out-
come.
With the opening of a
Fernandina Office, local' sen-
iors will have a place to go for
help with their civil problems
and it will cost the senior noth-
ing, When an officer responds
to a call for service and is
asked to review a civil matter,
the officer will be able to give
the senior a referral card to
the SVC Fernandina Office.
All office services are free to
clients and this service will not
be limited to city residents.
According to Seniors vs.
Crime Project Regional
Director David Blacklock, sen-


ior volunteers are needed to
staff the SVC Fernandina
Beach. Office, which will be
located at 1525 Lime Street
within the police department
building. He advised that the
office will help residents of
Nassau County who have been
ripped off or cheated become
whole, by having their money
returned, an apology extend-
ed, have repair work complet-
ed, have the work done prop-
erly or receive some other
reasonable remedy.
The office procedure will
be to ask the victim what
he/she wants done as redress.
Twenty volunteers are needed
to staff the Fernandina Beach
office two days a week for four
hours a day. "Our volunteers
do not lick envelopes; they
right wrongs," Blacklock said.
The Seniors vs. Crime
Project was started by Florida
Attorney General Bob Butter-
worth in 1989. Since the pro-
gram began in July 2001, more
than $8 million has been recov-
ered in economic crimes,
frauds, cons, scams, decep-
tions and honest mistakes
affecting mostly Florida sen-
iors. All the work is done by
local senior volunteers in local
offices.
Project staff will train
Senior Sleuths in operational
procedures. Training takes
only about four hours. An
office manager will be select-
ed and approved by the police
department and the SVC staff.
The local contact for the
Fernandina Beach Office is
Capt. David Bishop at 277-
7342, ext. 233 or dbishop
@fbfl.org. Persons wishing to
volunteer for-or have their civil
issues reviewed by the
Fernandina Beach office
should call or write Bishop.

Murder trial now


set for July 12


JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

A new trial date of July 12
was set for Mohamed
Salahudin Alnajjar at a hear-
ing March 11. He is charged
with first-degree murder in the
March 2008 shooting death of
32-year-old Roderick
Henderson of Yulee.
Alnajjar, 23, was set to go to
trial in mid-February on a
charge of second-degree mur-
der. But after further review
of the case Assistant State
Attorney Wesley White, direc-
tor of the Nassau County State
Attorney's Office, raised the
charge to first-degree murder.
With the new charge in
place, a trial date of March 8
was set, but a motion to con-
tinue was granted Feb. 25 at a
pretrial hearing, which even-
tually led to the new trial date
in July.
The original trial in
September 2009 was delayed
after Alnajjar's attorney, Public
Defender Brian Morrissey,
filed a motion to suppress any


statements, admissions and
confessions made by Alnajjar
to Nassau County Sheriff's
Office investigators. Judge
Robert Foster subsequently
denied the motion.
Alnajjar has been held with-
out bond at the Nassau County
Jail since March 4, 2008, after
he reportedly confessed to
shooting Henderson.
Henderson was found lying
on Palm Tree Drive in Yulee
about 9:45 p.m. on March 3,
2008; he was pronounced dead
at the scene, and investigators
began canvassing the neigh-
borhood questioning possible
witnesses.
Four persons of interest,
including Alnajjar, were taken
into police custody for ques-
tioning. Alnajjar was arrested
and the other three witnesses
to the crime were released.
Alnajjar is also charged
with carrying a concealed
weapon and tampering with or
fabricating evidence. He has
pleaded not guilty to all
charges.

Steady Welch takes title at Amelia National


Former Johnson and Wales University
golfer Michael Welch of Quincy, Mass., carded
an even-par 72 in the final round of The F&S
Asset Management Group Classic at Amelia
National Golf and Country Club to capture his
second career Hooters Tour title Sunday.
Welch started' I t i final round trailing third
round leader Russell Knox (Jacksonville ;
Beach) by one stroke after carding rounds of
67-68-70. Through the first nine holes, the 28-
year-old Welch trailed Knox by two strokes
after he carded a two-over par 38 and Knox
managed a one-over par 37.
Welch birdied his first two holes on the
backside to pull even with Knox before drop-
ping a shot at the long par-three 12th. Trailing
Knox with six holes to play Sunday, Welch
chipped in for birdie at the par-four 13th and
calmly sank a 40-foot putt on the 71st hole to
pull even with Knox heading in the 72nd hole.
After both players found the middle of the
fairway with their drives, Welch played first
and missed the green right, setting the stage
for Knox to take the title. Knox however;
pulled his approach left and found the lateral


water hazard, giving Welch three shots to take
the title or four shots to force a playoff.
Welch three putted from off the right side
of the green for his first title since 2007.
"When I won the tournament in 2007 1 was
really nervous coming down the stretch," said
Welch. "Last week I had the lead after two
rounds and I think that helped my confidence
this week, it proved I belong on top.
"He's (Knox) a great guy and we really
pushed each other today. You really hate to
win a golf tournament on another guy's mis-
take like that."
Philip Pettitt (72) of Murfreesboro, Tenn.,
Todd Bailey (67) of Spanish Fort, Ala., and
Knox (74) all finished in a tie for second place.
at 10-under par 278, one behind Welch. Bailey
carded the low round of the final day with his
five-under-par 67 and moved from tied for 12th
to his second-place finish with Knox and
Pettitt. The trio took home $11,967 for their
runnerup finishes. For Knox, it marks his sec-
ond straight runnerup finish.
Nationwide Tour member and Fernandina
Beach native Bubba Dickerson and former


PGATour player Dan Olsen (Ponte Vedra
Beach) headed up the remainder of the local
players in The F&S Asset Management Group
Classic with four-rou'nd totals of five-under-par
283. The veteran duo finished tied for eighth
for the week. Ponte Vedra's Je ff Dennis chlk-e-d
with a one-under-par 71 Sunday and finih,-i,
tied for 36th, while Tyler Brown (P.,nl: Vedra)
finished tied for 48th after a disappointing
three-over-par 75.
Welch collected $30,000 for his first win
since the 2007 season and moves into first
place on the money lisf with $35,007 in earn-
ings. The Hooters Tour member with the most
money earned over the first four tournaments
of the season will earn an exemption into the
Nationwide Tour's Fresh Express Classic at
TPC Stonebrae April 12-18.
The National Golf Association's Hooters
Professional Golf Tour will take a week off
next week before swinging back into action
March 22-28 at the Jones Course at Rock Barn
Golf and Spa for the Terry Moore Ford Open.
The Terry Moore Ford Open will have a purse
of $250,000 with $40,000 going to the winner.

QB Tim Tebow (that sounds weird) continues


to be the hot story of next month's NFL draft.
- The latest news came out of the Jacksonville
camp last week, when its marketing team used
a teleconference to ask current season ticket
. holders if they thought the Jaguars should
draft No. 15. Talk about adding fuel to a raging
fire.
Despite a 55-45 percent lean from current
season ticket holders against the team drafting
Tebow, it's believed if he were to land in
Jacksonville, the demand for season tickets
would increase exponentially. Tebow signed
1,500 autographs at $160 a pop at Palm Beach
Autographs in Jacksonville a few weekends
ago and he reportedly had to turn many away.
If 1,500-plus people were willing to shell out
that much for a signature, one would think
many more would pay out for a chance to see
Tebow at practice every day and at home
games.
Jacksonville owner Wayne Weaver made it
clear a few weeks ago that Tebow's icon status
would not factor into whether or not the
Jaguars draft him. Fair enough. But they
might consider letting their marketing depart-
ment in on their plans.

BASEBALL



Hornets top



Pirates 9-8

With two outs in the seventh inning and
the game tied 8-8, Jeremy Taylor hit a dou-
ble in the left center field gap to drive in
Zach Camp for the eventual winning run to
put Yulee up 9-8 Friday night at Fernandina
Beach. Buck Marell came on to pitch in the
seventh inning, giving up no base runners
and striking out one to pick up the save for
Yulee (7-2 and 2-0 in the district).
Yulee went up 2-0 in the first inning on a
leadoff triple by Cody Layfield, a run scor-
ing double by Marcus Taylor then an RBI-
single from Marell. Fernandina answered in
the bottom of the inning with four runs of
their own on two hit batters, two errors, a
double and a pair of singles.
Andrew Minor started the game on the
mound for the Hornets, going five innings,
striking out four and giving up no walks.
"Andrew started the game not being able
to get his breaking ball over the plate in the
first and hit two batters and gave up three
hits and four runs in the first," said Will
Minor, head baseball coach at Yulee High
School. "He settled down and started throw-
ing his breaking ball for strikes and gave up
three runs in the next four innings for the
no decision."
Adam Lang came on in relief, giving up
one run and receiving the win, while Marell
finished the game and picked up the save.
Marcus Taylor (2-for-3 with a double, two
runs and one RBI), Marell (2-for-3 with a
double and two RBIs) and C.J. Shelton (2-
for-4 with a home run, a double, four RBIs
and two runs) led Yulee with Jeremy Taylor
(double and run scored) getting the game-
winning RBI in the seventh. Layfield, Camp
and Jonathan Beaton also scored runs in the
victory.
"Defenisively we made a few mistakes
(three errors), but I am so proud of the way
our team has responded the past.two games
after being down early in the game and not
giving up," Coach Minor said. "We talk a lot
as a team about character and about never
giving up and I think this team really is
starting to understand what that is all
about"
The Hornets hosted Glynn Academy
Tuesday, play at Bolles Thursday at 6 p.m.
and at Hawthorne Saturday at 1 p.m.
The FBHS Pirates played at Raines
Tuesday. They host Ponte Vedra Thursday

7 p.m. game.
The Fernandina Beach High School
junior varsity baseball team hosted the
Bolles Bulldogs Monday in what ended up
as a first for Coach Jude Swearingen's
young team.
"This is the first time in my nine years
that the JV team has sent the Bulldogs
home after a 10-run mercy rule,"
Swearingen said. "We played a well-rounded
game, we pitched well, played solid defense
and were aggressive offensively and on the
base paths."
Nick Crawford picked up the win on the
mound, going, five innings, giving up no
runs on one hit with three strikeouts and
two walks.
The Pirate offense got it going early and
kept the pressure on throughout the game,
scoring one in the first, seven in the second
and six in the third to win 14-0.
Top offensive performers for FBHS were
Jake Foley (4-for-4, single, two doubles,
triple, three runs, three RBIs), Avery
Womble (2-for-2, single, double, two runs,
one RBI, two walks), Brendan Manning (2-
for-3, single, double, two RBIs), Drew
Bowman (1-for-2, triple, two runs, one RBI,
one HBP).
"We talked all week about learning how
to finish teams off," FBHS Coach Whit
Music said. "After we scored seven in the
second inning, we talked about putting them
away and, after we put up six in the third, I
felt that we grew up as a group.

Shelly siblings place third in Shamrock International Junior Shootout


The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour headed
north over the weekend for the Shamrock
International Junior Shootout at Wexford
Plantation Golf Course on Hilton Head Island,
S.C. With weather finally beginning to cooper-
ate for the HJGT, the players enjoyed weather
that flirted with the 70s and which, in turn,
helped players loosen up although the wind
and saturation of the golf course made this a
very difficult test throughout the weekend.
In the girls 15-19 division, three players
were all capable of taking home the hardware
as just four strokes separated the competitors
in the final grouping of the day. Reona Hirai of
Summerville, S.C., led the charge, after an
opening round 78, and was followed closely by
future collegiate golfers, Kendra Collins of
Bluffton, S.C., and Jacqueline Shelly of
Fernandina Beach.
After all three competitors began their final
rounds a little shaky, Hirai battled back and
regained control of the tournament and was
able to hold on for her first victory of the sea-
son. Hirai won the event by three strokes over
Collins with Shelly rounding out the girls com-
petition.
Rounding out the boys 10-12 division was
Eric Shelly of Fernandina Beach, who placed
third.

page and final round results, visit

Mensbhtz
March didn't really come in like a lion, but
the second week of the month made it seem
more like one might envision the weather to
be in North Florida. With the temperatures in
the low 70s on Wednesday last week, 64 play-
ers came out to play in the blitz at the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club. Freddie
Boatright took individual honors with a 75,
good for plus 14 points. He was followed by
Ron Dandurand, who had one of his better
rounds with a 78 and plus 10. Carl O'Rourke
also had a good round with a 76 and plus 9 for
third place.
With Boatright (plus 14) and Dandurand
(plus 10) on the same five-man team, plus
Jodie Greene with an 82 and plus 6, the minus '
7 of Rich Vredenburgh (98) and the minus 1 of
Ron Peterson (90), didn't prevent the team
from claiming first place with a plus 22. In a
not too distant plus 19, the all-plus team of
Dennis Sassenger (81, plus 6), Wayne
Mortenson (92, plus 5), Jack Croake (83, plus

(81, plus 6), Michael Parker (77, plus 2), Andy

Friday was one of those days when rain and
the threat of rain held the blitz field to 44 play-
ers. There were a few rain drops at the time

noon was great for playing golf. Doug Wolfe
took individual honors with an 81 and plus 7
points. There was a five-way tie at plus 6 for
second and third places. The players involved
included two players who didn't make it onto a

,players were Larry Luett (76), Dave Mason
(78) and Tommy Shave, who had a score of
two under his age, 70.

the same team, which included Dave Mudd'
(88, plus 1) and Sammy Alvarez (78, even), fin-
ishing first with a plus 14.

(82, plus 5), Fred Boatright (82, plus 3),

Schwartzel, who grew up idolizing Els, watched tapes of his

in Jupiter last week. Els became the fifth player with multiple victories in the
World Golf Championships, joining Tiger Woods, Darren Clarke, Geoff
Ogilvy and Phil Mickelson.


S!...! One of those shots that we do not
Q" "get the opportunity to practice
very much, but comes in handy at
times is the lob. shot. In essence,
the lob shot is a complete feel
shot, so there are a few tricks to
follow. The first step is to make
sure that your grip pressure is soft and your
hands stay quiet. You want to keep your grip
pressure constant throughout the entire stroke.
Your best course of action is to make a long, lazy
swing with as match wristcock as you can get on
your backswing. You need to make your stance
much wider than what you are used to and open
the clubface up dramatically to get the ball in the
air immediately. The final point is to play the ball
off of your left instep with almost all of your
weight being placed on your right foot.


Last week, the NY Post reported that Tiger Woods has hired former presidential adviser,
Ari Fleisher to help him plot his return to golf, which the report said will be at the Arnold
Palmer Invitational. Less than six hours later, the Associated Press published a story ,N'-.
stating that Woods will not be returning to golf before the Masters. The New York Times also -. -
reported on Friday that Woods "will not return to competition before the Masters." On Sunday,
Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said, Tiger Woods is expected to let the PGATour know soon
when he will return to action. "I'm as excited as everybody else to see him back, I hope its this spring, but my
sense is we'll know pretty soon," Finchem told NBC television on Sunday. "All of the speculation is about what
is going to happen at the end of March, I think if he's going to play at the end of March or early April, we will hear
pretty soon because, he recognizes we need time to do it," he added.

The skills of the



..surf fisherman


PHOTOS BY TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Puppy drum are numerous in the surf during the spring fishing season. Roger Lundborg, above, is pictured with his
beach puppy drum. Young Kyle Bednarski, below left, caught this exotic guitar fish while surf fishing just off Amelia
Island Plantation at the southern end of Amelia Island. The southern tip of Amelia showcases surf fishing for floun-
der, sea trout and redfish too, below right.


Bill and Kara Riggs
prefer fishing from
shore, particularly
from the beach at
the southern tip of Amelia
Island, where baits, tides and
fishing gear are all critical.
"The bite started with a
pair of sharp taps to the busi-
ness end of my seven-foot
spinning rod," Kara Riggs
said. "I reeled in the slack
fishing line and set the hook
firmly into a hard running
surf fish. By the way the fight
progressed, I knew I had
hooked a nice beach whiting."
During
the fight,.
Kara Riggs
sat on the
tailgate of
her hus-
band's pick-
up truck,
which was
backed up
OUTDOORS to the surf
... for easy
Terfy Lccoss fishing
e access.
Coolers, ice food, drinks, bait
and tackle were all handy in
the back of the pickup truck,
which actually became their
fishing boat on wheels while
surf fishing.
"I could not believe the
size of that whiting as I reeled
it from the surf and into the
bed of our truck," Kara Riggs
said. "I thought it was a small
red drum at first, but soon
identified at as a three-pound
beach whiting."
Whiting fishing has defi-
nitely picked up along the
beaches of Cumberland,
Amelia and Talbot islands
during the last few days.
Amazingly, there have been
some real giant whiting
caught that have tipped the
scales at over three pounds.
Whiting typically weigh from
just under oie pound to
almost two pounds. Catching
a whiting that weighs, over,
two pounds is unusual, while
catching a whiting weighing
over three pounds is a very
u' unusual catch.
"It's been a crazy spring
fishing season," said Don
Whitman of Leaders &
Sinkers. 'The water tempera-
ture has been the coldest it's
been for many fishing sea-
sons. We are finally getting
some nice warm days, which
I believe has been a boom to
our surf fishing, particularly
for whiting, Recently I
weighed a three-pound whit-
ing. That's a big whiting."
Whitman also reported
this past Saturday a 40-pound
black drum was caught from
the surf at the southern tip of
Amelia Island by Jerry Van
Dyke. The big drum was
caught with fresh shrimp.
"Fishing with fresh shrimp
is the key to catching a wide
variety of surf species,"
Whitman said. "I sell fresh
dead shrimp that is netted in
the rivers. Most of the shrimp
that is caught by the ocean-


going shrimp boats is treated
on the boat to stay fresh
longer. I definitely believe
fishing with fresh river'
shrimp makes a huge differ-
ence when not only surf fish-
ing, but fishing in general
while fishing with shrimp."
"We have a tradition of bit-
ing the head off from the first
shrimp before baiting our
first hook," Kara Riggs said.
"This tradition has always
brought us good luck. We
then peel the shell from the
shrimp so the smell of the
shrimp gets out into the
water. The dead shrimp is
then barbed through where
the head was attached and
finally out through the tail.
"For terminal fishing tack-
le we use a #2/0-3/0 bait-
holder hook. The bait-holder
hook has barbs on the shank
of the hook, which actually
help hold the bait onto the
hook We also use.a double-
hook surf rig and attach a #2-
to #4-ounce pyramid sinker to
the bottom snap swivel.
"Our tide-of choice is the
. high falling tide when there is
a good current running from
Nassau Sound into the ocean.
We will actually drive to the
southern tip from the Florida
State Park at the foot of the
George Crady public fishing
pier."
The Riggs make the short
drive to the southern tip and
fish right off the very south-
ern tip of Amelia Island.
"Bill and I will back our
truck right up to the river
side of the point and cast our
fresh shrimp right out into
the deep running current,"
Kara Riggs said "'There is a
deep hole here that typically
holds some real nice whiting
that we enjoy eating baked,
fried or broiled."
Surf fishing from the
southern tip of Cumberland
Island is also excellent during
the spring fishing season.
Fishermen will find numer-
ous shallow sandbars, where
deep sloughs are also located.
"Locating a deep slough
along the surf is key to mak-
ing a good catch while beach
fishing," Whitman said. "I rec-
ommend making a long cast
and reeling your bait and
weight slowly along the bot-
tom until the weight falls off
into a deep hole. This is how
you locate a deep surf
slough."
Surf fishing is definitely
growing in popularity and
fishermen can test the waters
without all the preparation
necessary to prepare a fish-
ing boat for a day on the
water. If the fish are not biting
or the weather changes bad,
just pack up your gear and
drive home without having to
wash or gas up that expensive'
boat.
Surf fishermen 16 and
older will need to purchase a
saltwater fishing license when
sbIrf fishing in both Georgia
and Florida.

Freevessel safety check
As the weather starts to get warmer and
with the increase in daylight hours more and
more recreational boaters will be getting their
boats ready for the spring and summer sea-
sons. Before hitting the water, the Coast
Guard Auxiliary urges boaters to make sure
they have the required safety equipment and
that it is in working order by taking advantage
of a free vessel safety check.
Vessel safety checks are conducted by qual-
ified members of the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary and are the best way of learning
about problems that might be a violation of
state or federal laws and provide the boating
public with additional safety tips that could
possibly mitigate or eliminate preventable dan-
ger on the water. Vessel safety checks can be
conducted on any type of watercraft from
boats, personal watercraft to kayaks.
Life jackets, fire extinguishers and distress
signals are just some of the items required by
federal regulations. The Coast Guard also sug-
gests boaters equip their vessels with a marine
VHF radio, GPS device and 406 MHz EPIRB
(Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon
for off shore boating).
There aren't any penalties associated with
not passing the check. Those who do pass
may display this year's decal on their boat.
Now is also a great time to take advantage
of one of the many boating safety courses
offered by. the Coast Guard Auxiliary and


become acquainted or reacquainted with basic
boating skills, seamanship and the most cur-
rent rules and regulations that may also save a
live or prevent and accident. Visit Flotilla 14-1
websit6 at http://cgaux7-14-1.org/.

Bassmaast meet
Nassau Bassmasters, associated with the
BASS National Federation and the Florida
BASS Federation, meets the third Thursday in
Yulee. Membership is open to anyone at least
16 years old. Call Bob Schlag at (912) 729-2282
or Billy Kittrell at 225-0267.

Local Flyers soar at Florida YMCA state swimming meet


Eighteen local swimmers, part of the
YMCA of Florida's First Coast Flyers swim
team, recently participated in the Florida
YMCA state swimming championships in
Orlando.
The action began Friday night, with the
Flyers' Alex Cook, Bridgette DeLille, Lindsey
DeLille, Jasmine Duke and Zoe Stein each
competing in the 200-yard individual medley
and Lindsey DeLille, Duke and Stein also tak-
ing on the 500-yard freestyle.
It was a night for personal bests and gruel-
ing efforts for those brave and strong enough
to swim all three days of the meet, setting a
great stage for the weekend to come.


Saturday's and Sunday's action started
early and ended late. Seventeen swimmers
competed in preliminary events in the morn-
ing; those qualifying for the finals (top 16)
swam again at night.
For most of the local swimmers, this was
their first experience competing in a final
event. Fourteen qualified for at least one final.
Sixteen-year-old Aly Kaywork and 12-year-
old Jasmine Duke led the girls with five
appearances each in qualifying finals; 12-year-
old Alex Cook led the boys and the local team
with six finals appearances; 16-year-old Drew
Bowman had three appearances each in quali-
fying finals along with 12-year-old Noah


Beckham.
Overall Kaywork took home four top-10 fin-
ishes, Duke bagged five and Cook logged two.
Twelve-year-old Zoe Stein (one), Beckham
(one) and Jared Smith, 11, (two) also earned
their first championship top-10s.
Smith and Stein competed in their first
1,650-yard freestyle events, finishing second
and fourth, respectively.
Mary-Kate Kaywork and Lindsey DeLille
took on the other long distance challenge for
the meet, as they swam the 1,000 freestyle, fin-
ishing 13th and 14th, respectively.
Other Flyers making the finals in their
events were Brennan Beckham, Lindsey


DeLille, Maisie Gooch, Mary-Kate Kaywork,
Amanda Middleton, Coral-Brooke "Skippy"
Skipper and Amanda Stein.
Flyers swimming personal bests included
Bridgette DeLille, Leanna Middleton, Rachel
Sheppard and Rachel Taylor.
Nine-year-old Bridgette DeLille was the'
sole local 10-and-under Flyer to swim at the
championships, recording strong swims in
each race.
The YFFC Flyers finished fifth as a team,
turning in a stellar performance against much
larger teams, including the defending YMCA
state and national champions, the Sarasota
YMCA Sharks.

Church of Christ holds



off Five Points Baptist 11-9


Six teams vying for

FDSL championship
In Family Driven Softball League action
last week, Fernandina Beach Church of
Christ held off the hard charging Five Points
Baptist Church by a score of 11-9. The game
started as if Church of Christ would run away
from Five Points by pounding six runs in the
first inning.
Stephen Coleman hit a double while
Carolyn Sauls followed with a triple for
Tommy Dyer's Church of Christ team. Five
Points began to chip away at the lead as
Chris Brauda scored in the second inning.
Coach Alan Brown's team started to settle
dpwn on the defensive side as they limited
the Church of Christ squad to just three runs
in the final four innings. Brauda began to
show why he was one of the top players in
2009, scoring twice in consecutive innings.
Five Points' Marvin Sloan hit a home run
to bring his team within two scores of tying
the game before Dyer, who pitched in relief,
led his defense with three consecutive outs.
Brandon Smith, who continues to have an
excellent season for Five Points, went 4-for-4
at the plate. Tony West went 3-for-4 at the
plate for Church of Christ.
In other action, Christ Walk remains in
first place as it defeated David Keay's The
Bridge in a defensive battle, 6-1. Matthew
Hampton went 3-for-4 and scored three runs


for Christ Walk.
Player of the week was Anthony Evatt as
he went 3-for-4 at the plate with a home run, a
triple and a double as his Celebration Team
Two defeated the Springhill Saints 13-3.
First Baptist Team Two defeated
Celebration Team Four 16-6. Scott Schol went
4-for-4 at the plate for.First Baptist.
Derek Bellar went 4-for-4 as The Journey
handed Team Four its first of two losses on
the day by a score of 16-14.
Celebration Team One, playing short-
handed, held on to whip the Springhill Angels
13-12. Ryan Jones and Jack Martin both went
3-for-4 for Team One.
Eric Crider went 3-for-3 on the day as
Yulee Baptist Church defeated First Baptist
Church Team One 14-5. Garret Callis scored
three runs with two doubles for the Yulee
squad.
With just four games left in the season,
Celebration Team Two-has won eight straight
games and is within striking distance of
Christ Walk's hold onto first place.
This Saturday Team Two will take .on The
Journiey, which happens to be the top hitting
team in the league with a showdown with
Christ Walk on the horizon.
Six teams still have a shot at the FDSL
championship crown with Celebration Team
One possibly playing the best softball in the
league.

Softball league, contact Ernie'Stuckey at 261-

WEDNESDAY. MARCH 17,2010 LEISURE News-Leader


Shriners promise family fun at 62nd annual parade Saturday


For the News-Leader

Infinite numbers of specta-
tors will line up along Centre
Street for the 62nd Annual
Fernandina' Beach Shriners
Parade on Saturday, beginning
at 11 a.m. The parade begins
at llth Street and proceeds
through downtown on Centre
Street to the waterfront.
While donning their bur-
gundy-colored fezzes,
Fernandina Beach Shrine Club
and Morocco Shrine members
from throughout Northeast
Florida will be enjoyed by chil-
dren of all ages as they bring
out the clowns, motorcycles,
bands, four-wheeled vehicles
and cartoon characters to pro-
vide entertainment for your
pleasure.
Motorcycles and miniature


cars will zigzag their way up
and down Centre Street with a
buzz while performing tight fig-
ure eights and executing their
turns on impossibly small
wheels.
The rat-a-tat-tat of drums will
follow, as some of the band
units begin to pass and will end
with a steel band performing
Caribbean music.
The Fernandina Beach
Shrine Club members love the
parade because it provides
exposure in the community.
Events such as Saturday's
parade allow the Shrine mem-
bers to let their fez tassels down
and have a little fun. Shriners
have been the social side of
Masonry since 1872 and enjoy
having fun and parading.
Since 1922, when the first
hospital opened, the parades


have evolved into public aware-
ness and fundraising activities
for Shriners Hospitals for
Children. Today, more than 85
years later, Shriners Hospitals
for Children is a health care
system of 22 hospitals dedicat-
ed to improving the lives of chil-
dren by providing specialty
pediatric care, innovative
research and outstanding teach-


ing programs.
Raising money for the
Shriners network of 22 hospi-
tals across North America,
which cost more than $2 million
every day to operate, is a chal-
lenge for the approximately
350,000 members from the con-
tinent's 191 chapters.
Shriners volunteer their
time and more than 94 cents


out of every dollar goes direct-
ly to the hospitals.
Fernandina Beach .Shrine
Club participates in 8 to 10
parades a year throughout
Northeast Florida and south-
east Georgia and many of those
parade units reciprocate by
coming to Fernandina Beach
for the second official Morocco
SShriners Parade of every year.
Morocco Shrine Center also
provides ground and air trans-
portation for children in need of
specialized medical care at
Shriners Hospitals for Children.
More than $11,000 in local
transportation costs occurs
every- month throughout- 17
counties in Northeast Florida
for the children sponsored, so
the fundraising never ends.
The Shriner parade units
enjoy the crowd reaction at


these events, but there is a
more serious side to the fun
and frivolity. The fun is only
succumbed by the reaction of
seeing a burned or disabled
child walk again and grow up to
lead a more productive life.
Children up to the age of 18
with orthopedic conditions,
burns, spinal cord injuries and
cleft lip and palate are eligible
for admission and receive all
care in a family-centered envi-
ronment with no financial obli-
gatidn to patients or families.
Since the first' Shriners
Hospitals for Children opened
in 1922, more than 835,000 chil-
dren have been helped world-
wide to lead a more productive
life. If you know of a child who
can be helped by Shriners
Hospitals, please call 1-800-237-
5055 or ask any Shriner.


Progressive dinner



to 'savor the arts'


For the News-Leader

Food sustains us, provides
comfort and is the root of many
favorite traditions. And, as any
accomplished chef will tell you,
food is also an art. On March 28
Amelia Arts Academy will cele-
brate "Food as an Art" with the
17th Annual Gourmet Progres-
sive Dinner.
Guests at the event will enjoy
dinner and musical entertain-
ment in some of Amelia Island's
most spectacular homes. "The
Progressive Dinner has long
been a popular event in our,
community and an important
fundraiser for Amelia Arts
Academy," says Progressive
Dinner Chairman and Amelia
Arts Academy Board Member
Tiffany Shaw. "This year proves
to be the most exciting yet."
The Food As An Art
Gourmet Progressive Dinner
features acclaimed internation-
al chefs who will create unique
themed culinary masterpieces
that represent their personal
artistic vision.
Each chef will be assigned to
a different home, and no more
than 14 people will be served
in each home. "
"How often do you get the
chance to be a dinner guest in
someone's home where that
dinner is made by a renowned
chef?" says Executive Director
Pegge Ealum. 'This is an excep-
tional opportunity that doesn't
come around often."
Among the culinary artists


participating in the event are
Thomas Toxldorf and Niko
Anagnostan of The Ritz-Carlton,
Amelia Island; Roberto Pestana
of Espana; Courtney Thompson
of Horizons; Carolyn Fraser;
Steve Scavotto, formerly of Your
Place; Elizabeth McCranie of
Terra; Rita Rugiero of Antonio's
and Roman's in Detroit, Mich.;
and Toni Mai of Bonito's Sushi
Grill.
The Progressive Dinner will
kick off at the home of Anne
Coonrod, with cocktails, hours
d'oeuvres, a silent auction and
entertainment by the Academy
Jazz Ambassadors. Then, atten-
dees will be given their home
assignments and will travel to
experience an exquisite meal in
a beautiful setting.
Each chef and homeowner is
working together to create
extravagant and creative meals,
such as Chef Rita Rugiero's
opera-themed meal. Rugiero,
who has cooked for celebrities
such as Andrea Bocelli, will take
a break from running her four
Italian restaurants in Michigan
to participate in the event.
Rugiero's meal will include five
courses, each with a wine pair-
ing poured and introduced by
Nathan Asaro, The Grotto man-
ager and sommelier.
Tickets to this event can be
purchased by calling the Amelia
Arts Academy at 277-1225 or
visiting www.AmeliaArtsAcade
my.org. Due to the intimate set-
ting of this event, space is lim-
ited.

Band Bash dance series we

here as thie house band.
Many Amelia Island resi-

those shows have been
requesting that we create it
again on the island, so we're

Water to Nicara a


Seven Rotary members from
the Rotary Club of Amelia Island
Sunrise and one member of the
Fernandina Beach Club trav-
eled to Nicaragua to help bring
clean drinking water to impov-
erished areas:
The project, done in concert
with the non-profit "Potters for
Peace," purchases and distrib-
utes the water filters through
Peace Corps volunteers. The.
Sunrise Club committed $3,000
to the project and received a
$5,000 grant from the Rotary
district, comprising 62 clubs in
north Florida. Additional dona-
tions have come from other
clubs in the district, including a
$2,500 commitment from the
Rotary Club of Fernandina
Beach.
Sunrise President Chip
Townsend led the group to
Nicaragua where they toured a
filter factory and visited with
Peace Corps volunteers in two
of the communities :where the
filters are distributed. The mem-
bers also visited three Rotary


Clubs, two in Managua and one
in Matagalpa. Other Rotarians
on the expedition included:
'President-Elect Art Shuster,
Brian Flick, Christal Fish, Dave
Dully, Julie McCracken, Katey
Breen and Rotary noon club
member, Mike Clemens.
The group traveled into the
outlying rural villages of San
Dionisio and La Dalia to witness
first-hand how the filters are
used and distributed.
Townsend commented, "We
went to Nicaragua to see our
project in action aid to get a
sense of how severe the need
was for these water filters. What
we found in the rural areas was
a population of wonderful people
living in extreme poverty with a
desperate lack of services
including clean water. We know
now that we can change lives
for the better through this type
of project!"
The Sunrise Rotary Club
meets every Friday morning
from 7:30-8:30 a.m. at the
-Fernandina Beach Golf Club.
