An 8-acre natural lake behind the YMCA off Lake Shore Drive in Amelia Park has gone from its natural hue, above left, to algae green,
above right. The putrid color, below, is likely a result of nutrients used in fertilizing Amelia Park landscape, not a pool contractor draining
,the Y swimming pool into the lake, bottom, according to regional water experts.


Algae bloom

turns lake to

neon soup
MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
An unsightly algal bloom in Lake
Simmons off Lake Shore Drive was
apparently caused by spring fertiliz-
er runoff from Amelia Park.
Neighbors had complained that
the algae was ciaiuL-.d by drainage- of
the YMCA swimming pool into the
lake, but that appears riot to be the
case, according to the St. Johns
River Water Management District.
The natural lake was enlarged to
its present 8-acre size as part of a
permitted stormwater system to
serve the Amelia Park development,
said Teresa Monson, senior commu-
nications specialist for the St. Johns
River Water Management District.
"Apparently, there was a
natural pond on the property
(according to 1940 imagery) that
was later dredged and expanded.
Simmons Lake was constructed
under a permit issued in 1997 to
serve as part of the master surface
water management system for
Amelia Park, which includes'the
YMCA on Citrona Road," Monson
wrote by e-mail Tuesday.
Following complaints, a SJR-
WMD compliance officer made a
site visit to the lake Tuesday. "He
believes spring fertilizer runoff from
Amelia Park is more likely the
source of nutrients (nitrogen and
phosphorus), which in excess can
lead to algal proliferation. He saw no
evidence that the algal bloom is
related to the YMCA pool dis-
charge," Monson wrote.
Amelia Park is planned to ulti-
mately have 420 houses plus com-
mercial development on its 120
acres. It was founded in the late
1990s by Amelia Park Development,
led by local resident Joel Embry. It
was part of the New Urban move-
ment pioneering traditionall neigh-
borhood development" in Northeast
Florida.
It includes a Garden Walk featur-
ing "diverse native greens enhanced

ing to a brochure, and the develop-
ment was planned to take advantage
of the natural habitat.
But lush landscaping requires
upkeep, including nutrients that may
have run off into the lake during.
recent rains. "An overabundance of
nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus)
are the typical causes of algal
blooms," Monson wrote. Also, the
volume of water in the swimming
pool was small compared to the vol-
ume of water in the lake, she said.
The contractor drained the pool
in order to re-cover its sides and bot-
tom, according to Nikos
Westmoreland, communications
director for the First Coast YMCA.

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County is in generally good
financial health, according to an exter-
nal audit. However, the audit identi-
fied "material weaknesses" in the
accounting practices of the sheriff's
office and the property appraiser's
office.
Purvis Gray & Co., the Gainesville
firm that has handled the county's
audits for the last five years, conduct-
ed the review.
"We've rendered an unqualified
opinion on the county's financial state-
ments, which is a clean opinion,"
Purvis Gray representative Ron
Whitesides told the county commis-
sion at its Monday meeting. "That's
the highest level we can render."
The county's assets for fiscal 2009
exceeded its liabilities by more than
$512 million. However, its expenses
exceeded its revenue by about $14 mil-
lion. Of that figure, about $10.7 mil-
lion was due to onetime costs associ-
ated with the closure of the West
Nassau Landfill, Whitesides said.
Total revenue for fiscal 2009 was
about $94 million, down about $673,000
from last year. Expenses, however,
increased -from about $95.6 million in
fiscal 2008 to about $97.7 million in fis-
cal 2009. Once again, Whitesides said,

City adds


spending


authority
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
As the result of a purchasing code
amendment, the city manager will be
authorized to approve city purchases
up to $20,000 without the need of city
commissioner approval.
The amendment ordinance was
approved by city commissioners 4-1 at
their March 16 meeting, with
Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch voting
against.
Vice Mayor Eric Childers, although
he had no objection to the change in
the city manager's procurement
authority, also asked for some addi-
tional changes to the ordinance. Those
changes had mostly to do with the
timeline for contractor bid protests.
Bunch said he was afraid that, if
the ordinance was approved, large pur-
chases would be made by city staff
without the knowledge of city com-
missioners.
"An employee now has a $20,000
bar to go up to," Bunch said. "Now he
can go buy a car for $19,000 and we
won't know he bought it until it shows
up (at a commissioner meeting). It's
not managing our money well."
But City Manager Michael
Czymbor told Bunch that the city can-
not purchase anything unless it has
been budgeted beforehand.
"We review every piece of equip-
ment," Czymbor said. "We know the
value of what each vehicle is ... the
commission sees all that,... it's in the
budget that you approve."
Czymbor went on to explain that
purchasing is a detailed process that
involves the purchasing agent, the city
controller and an auditor, with docu-
mented policies, procedures, checks
and balances.
"It comes down to a level of trust,"
said Commissioner Tim Poynter. "Do
I trust the city manager? I guess the
answer is yes. If we're worrying about
$5,000, it's being not trusting of one of

Mosquito season nearing, state warns


TALLAHASSEE With the arrival of
spring and warmer weather, Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson this
week reminded horse owners to get their
animals vaccinated for mosquito borne
diseases.
The two principal equine diseases
associated with mosquitoes are Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West
Nile Virus (WNV), and the majority of
cases of each can be prevented with
proper vaccinations, according to animal
health officials.
'The key is to make sure that a horse

has been vaccinated
against these mosqui-
to-borne diseases and
to check with your
veterinarian to deter-
mine whether an ani-
mal's booster shots
are up to date," ,


So far this year, Florida has no equine
cases of EEE or WNV, but that can
change quickly as mosquito populations
increase significantly with the warmer
weather and can explode in areas with
heavy rains and standing water.


Humans, too, need to minimize their
contact with mosquitoes as mosquitoes
remain the largest carrier of diseases
that afflict people.
Toward that end, Bronson is recom-
mending that Floridians:
Remove standing water from their
property by emptying out stagnant water
from kiddie pools, old tires, birdbaths
and any other receptacle that holds
water.
Wear long-sleeved shirts and long
pants when outside around dusk and
dawn, when mosquitoes are most active.
Use a good mosquito repellent.

did we pay the auditor, $15,000

City Attorney Tammi Bach
said that originally the pur-

discussed increasing the city
manager's procurement author-
ity to $25,000, but could not
agree to that amount.
City Clerk Mary Mercer
concurred with Bach that the
majority of the committee did
not want the amount to be
$25,000, but she added that ulti-
mately purchasing policy was

much of the jump was account-
ed for by the landfill closure.
"Overall, are you in a posi-
tion to tell us what the financial
health of the county is at this
point?" Commission Chair
Mike Boyle asked.
"We've seen steady
improvement over the five
audits, and this has been the
best so far," Whitesides said.
"... I think given what the
county's been through in
terms of growth, you're in
pretty solid fiscal condition
today."
"It's good to hear these
reports that maybe we are
doing spme things the right
way," Commissioner Barry
Holloway said.
Boyle agreed. "To have
someone like yourself -:an'
independent financial advisor
come in and give us a pretty
clean bill of health, I think it
means a lot to the people of
this county," he told
Whitesides.
Despite the overall fiscal
health of the county, the audit
did identify material weak-
nesses in the accountability
processes of the sheriff's
office and the property
appraiser's office.
A "material weakness" is
not an accusation of malfea-
sance, but rather an account-
ing practice that could cause
"a reasonable possibility that a
material misstatement of the
entity's financial-statements
will not be prevented, or
detected and corrected on a
- timely basis," according to the
audit report.
For both offices, the report
recommended greater segre-
gation of duties.
"The duties of signing
checks, initiating bank trans-
fers, reconciling bank state-

ments and preparing and post-
ing journal entries were per-
formed by the same employ-
ee," the report on the sheriff's
.office stated. "... The failure
to separate incompatible
duties could result in errors
or irregularities that might go
undetected."
In spite of the identified
weaknesses, the county's fis-
cal health and accountability
have been vastly improved in
recent years, Clerk of Court
John Crawford said Monday.
Crawford cited the case of
Julie Mixon, a county employ-
ee who committed suicide in
2005 after admitting to
embezzling more than $1 mil-
lion a theft, Crawford said
in 2005, made possible
because of a lack of segrega-
tion of duties.
"That theft really created
disarray," he said Monday.
"The discovery of it and our
response to it used up all of
,our resources that normally
would have been diverted to
the audit. They had to be redi-
rected to a forensic account-
ing of what was stolen.
"Since then, there has been
improved accountability,
improved transparency and an
improved financial position for
the county overall, especially
as compared to other like-sized
counties," he added. "Can we
get better? Yes. ....But the
board has had conversations,
and I've made recommenda-
tions, to address that:"

BUSIOsprey village shows off homeNESS


SUBMI 1 iTLE
Osprey Village is unveiling newly renovated cottages and villas during a Showcase of Homes
from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday arid Saturday.


Shiny granite counter-
tops, stainless steel fixtures
and bright interiors are just
three reasons Amelia Island
residents will gather this
weekend for the public
unveiling of Osprey Village's
newly redesigned cottages
and villas.
Osprey Village, a luxury
retirement .community, is
hosting a two-day, public
Showcase of Homes to dis-
play. the new upscale addi-
tions. The all-inclusive retire-
ment community is designed

longer, happier and more
independent lives, and
Executive Director Matt
Younger is confident the ren-
ovations will resonate with
future members.
"Our cottages are beauti-
fully crafted and designed to
-help our members live a


comfortable, care-free
lifestyle," Younger said.
"When people walk into our
community, they expect the
best the best materials, the
best amenities and the best
service. I think the public
will agree ... our redesigned
villas and homes deliver just
that."
The two-day event kicks

ments we've made to the
community, and it's time to
show those off."

Silent taxes wave of the future


Silence is golden, as the
adage goes.
For government, it couldn't
be truer and silence could
not be more golden.
Lucrative silent taxes are
popping up on the federal,
state and local levels like
blooms on azaleas. These are
taxes that you often do not
hear about, or clearly see. But
they are taxing to your finan-
cial health.
. The new health care bill is
loaded with silent, or hidden,
taxes. These are assessed on
everything from wheelchair
sales to tanning salons; nor-
mally, they are assessed to
tisers of certain services or
products.
Facing a gargantuan budg-
et deficit, county commission-
ers here are "discussing" the
implementation of similar
silent taxes. While increases
in property tax rates are as
welcomed as beach erosion,
officials must look elsewhere
to generate revenues. (By the
way, they could also reduce

expenses.)
-Look no
further than
your cellular
phone bill
for the pres-
ence of silent
taxes There
is a Florida
sales tax and
a community
services tax,
as well as
another
sales tax and
a "911 tax,"
both from


the county. In addition, a city
(Fernandina Beach) commu-
nity services tax is also
assessed, even if you don't live
in the city limits.
All in all, the five taxes
amount to about 10 percent of
the total bill. Consider the
number ofcell phone users,
and the picture becomes
clearer.
To put it in context, howev-
er, maybe 10 percent isn't that
bad compared to as much as


36 percent on income taxes
and up to 55 percent on estate
taxes. These taxes are simply
passed on to the user by the
phone company
As the fine print on the bill
states, "Surcharges may
'include regulatory charges,
administrative charges, gross
receipts charges, and other
charges incurred (by the
phone company) to recover
costs associated with govern-
mental programs."
Thank you for the in-depth
explanation. If only the user
knew what the frivolous lan-
guage meant.
There are other silent
taxes locally, such as sales
taxes and gas taxes. They are
almost everywhere you turn.
And get used to it. These
silent tariffs are the wave of
the future. After all, they do
not meet the opposition 'and
scrutiny of income or proper-
ty taxes. And they constitute a
substantial source of tax rev-
enues for governments at all
levels.


Among the considerations
for the county will be institut-
ing more, or higher, silent
taxes. And if you don't watch
closely, officials can quietly go
about raising such taxes. You
won't be notified or alerted to
them.
Raising property tax rates
is like apolitical death sen-
tence, so county officials will
seek these types of alternative
means. As stated before, they
' could also trim expenses to
meet a projected $14 million
shortfall.
While tax increases are
unpopular with voters,
expense reductions possibly
in the form of layoffs are dis-
liked by employees and staff
members. It's just easier and
less painful to go about your
business quietly, covertly.
And implement silent
taxes.

Bright, sunny corridors are a feature of the new
Berkman Building at Baptist Medical Center Nas


Hospital construction nears end


V Finishing touches are being
put on the $24 million Berkman
Building and new nursery that
are now open for patient care at
--... Baptist Medical Center Nassau.
.. "The entire building project
has gone beautifully from start
to finish," said Jim Mayo, admin-
istrator. "We've heard compli-
ments from -physicians that so
much advanced technology
could be incorporated into such
an attractive design. Patients
and families love the spacious
private rooms, and everyone's
pleased with the bright, sunny
corridors and landscaping.
Overall it's a very welcoming
atmosphere."
7 Although the focal point is
the two-story Berkman Build-
l ing, which provides a state-of-
the-art intensive care unit and
spacious, private rooms for
every patient, construction has
continued since patients moved
in. The former patient wing was
torn down and a new nursery
constructed. Then new corri-
dors were built to connect the
new facility to overall hospital
operations. With the old build-
SUBMITIED ing out of the way, new meeting
and administrative offices, wait-
ssau. ing areas and pleasing court-
yards were cr-ealed Even the


Chest Pain Centers.
According to a letter from a
recent patient, Amelia Islander
Harvey Slentz, "The new wing
is beautiful, but the people are
what make it great. Everyone -
and I mean that precisely- per-
formed way above what I would
have expected. BMC Nassau is
a local asset that goes beyond
being a good hospital. It's a pre-
mier community asset in the
same way as are our beaches
and our tourism hospitality."
"We're fortunate to now have
such a wonderful facility for
patients," said Mayo, "and to
have always had such dedicat-
ed, professional and caring staff
Together with some extremely
generous community'members,
they helped make. these
advances possible."
The hospital is planning a
celebratory Spring Garden
Party for all who would like to
see the new, improved spaces as
soon as everything is complete
in early May.


lobby is getting a needed
facelift, Mayo said.
"It's really wonderful for our
patients," says Barbara Gingher,
assistant administrator. "Private
rooms are safer, more comfort-
able and more conducive to
healing. Physicians can provide
care for more serious conditions
than were possible before which
means more people stay close
to home and families. The ben-
efits are so obvious, everyone
was tolerant of the inconven-
iences. They were very under-
standing and gracious through-
out the construction process."
Occupancy at the hospital
has swelled by 15.percent since
the Berkman Building opened.
New physicians have joined the
medical staff and more surger-
ies are performed. Mayo


expects to open a fourth oper-
ating room later this year, and
with two new obstetricians in
the community, births are
already on the increase.
, This expansion tops off a
decade in which almost.the
entire hospital- the emergency
and radiology departments, sur-
gical suites, clinical lab, kitchen
and ancillary spaces have
been expanded and upgraded
with new space and technolo-
gy. Also during this time, Baptist
Nassau was the first communi-
ty hospital in Florida to convert
from paper to electronic medical
records. It was awarded
"Magnet" recognition, the
health care industry's highest
award for excellence in patient
care, and recently earned

This past week I met with
staff from the Department of
Children and Families about
food stamps. I learned that the
benefits from food stamps are
funded 100 percent from fed-
eral dollars. The cost of deter-
mining eligibility is borne
50/50 between the federal and
state government.
I was also told that since
this is a federal program,
there is nothing the state can
do to further restrict purchas-
es made with food stamps. I
will continue to probe on this.
issue because it just does not


make sense that filet mignon
and Alaskan king crab legs
can be purchased with food
stamps. I intend to write a let-
ter to the federal oversight
agencies in Washington, D.C.,
to ask for a closer examination
of this use of public benefits.
Last week I mentioned that
the use of food stamps has
grown substantially since the
recession began in December
2007. In April 2007, just over
$300,000 in food stamp assis-
tance was distributed in
Nassau County. By February
2009, this number had dou-
bled to over $621,000. In
January 2010, food stamp
assistance had grown to over
$1 million in Nassau County.
The impact that this federal
food assistance program is
having locally is significant
and is now a major means by
which many citizens receive
help with food and n'itrition.
The Department of
Transportation opened the
bids for the AlA overlay proj-
ect. Three companies bid for
the repair work. After the
mandatory 72-hour posting,
the project will be awarded
and work should commence
very soon.
My office will continue to

The growth in the Florida
Medicaid program continues
to be a serious issue facing
the Legislature this year. In
Nassau County, the number of
Medicaid recipients has
gf own from 4,800 individuals
just a few years ago to over
8,500 persons this year. The
budget committee. have
included language in their
respective bills that would
expand the controversial
Medicaid reform proposal in
19 other counties.
I have filed HB 933 that
would offer an alternative plan
to consider changes to the
Medicaid program for small
rural counties in Florida. I met
with House leaders and com-
mittee staff to discuss the
needs of small counties and
how these counties are affect-
ed by changes in the systems
of care in rural areas.
With the recent passage of
federal health reform, this will
force the Florida Medicaid
program to expand by over
one million new people and
will cost Floridians an addi-
tional $1 billion. As the Florida
Legislature makes changes to
the Medicaid program, I will
continue to focus on how rural
counties are impacted. -
Life in the legislature is
busy and involves serious
issues that deserve proper
discussion and debate in both
chambers; but more often
than not, these discussions
happen in the hallways,
offices and committee rooms
of the Florida Capitol. For
proposed changes and meas-
ures to pass, they must have
support from House leader-
ship, support from the state
agencies that are affected, and
help from the trade organiza-
tions, citizen advocates anid

Time for less


government,


lower taxes

Nassau County faces a $14 million short-
fall in the 2010-11 budget that will go into
effect Oct. 1. County commissioners have
begun conversations about how to cope
with that, either by cutting services or rais-
ing taxes.
Our advice is simple: Cut government.
Do not raise taxes.
Less government and lower taxes are, in
fact, the Republican credo. But the
Republicans who have presided over
Nassau County government for most of the
past decade have also presided over the
largest increase in county spending in our
history.
Much of that was prompted by popula-
tiurt growth, but we failed to foresee the,
economic reeeession that has slo 'iffiht" *
growth and, worse for county officials,
reduced property tax income and other rev-
enues.
We've lived beyond our means, and now
we must tighten our belts. This will hurt.
County department heads have been
asked to consider the consequences of cut-
ting their budgets by 10 percent That's an
appropriate first step.
Commissioners also are considering tax
increases a 1-cent sales tax hike appears
to be the preference, rather than a 5-cent
gasoline tax or an increase in property
taxes.
Commissioners Mike Boyle and Barry
Holloway ran for election on the plank of
repealing the 5-cent gas tax, and we can't
imagine they'd want to run for reelection
having restored it. In fact, we can't imagine
they'd want to run again with the millstone
of any tax increase.
But a consequence of that, Holloway
frets, would be the layoff of a significant
number of county employees and reduced
county services.
"I've never had a single constituent tell
me the level of service in the county is too
high," Boyle agreed. Of course, we'd bet
he's never had a single constituent tell him
the level of taxes in the county is too low
either.
There's the rub. To balance the budget,
taxes have to be raised or expenses have to
be cut
We don't envy the commissioners their
dilemma. But we are clear about the way
forward.
In private industry, there have been lay-
offs, furloughs, pay freezes, pay cuts and
reduced benefits for employees. This has
led to diminished services and even the
elimination of services offered to cus-
tomers. Why? Because customers are
unable or unwilling to pay more given the
economic turmoil in their own lives.
We don't think Nassau County residents
can afford their government right now.
They just can't pay.
We don't think county commissioners
can afford to raise taxes right now either.
Or they will pay.

What would the


We've heard a lot of talk recently
about returning to the values of.
our country's Founders, those
W men who wrote the Constitution
in 1787. Well, considering the silliness going
on at-every level of government right now,
maybe the talk has merit. I mean, the
Founders feared "factions," political parties or
interest groups attempting to control the politi-
cal decision-making process, and they feared
"the masses," that's why they only allowed
the people to vote for members of the House of
Representatives, directly; U.S. senators were
elected/selected by-state legislatures and the
president was elected by the electoral college.
Fast-forward to 2010. Given the Foundes'
fear of political parties, I wonder what they
would say about the gridlock and partisan pos-
turing and bickering going on in Washington
today? Consider:
It's predicted that not a single Republican
will vote for the health care "reform" legislation
nearing approval by Congress. I wouldn't
either, but for different reasons. One of their
justifying reasons for opposition is curious,
though they say they want to protect
Medicare. What, they hate Medicare, it is, after
all, a government-run health care system, it is
"socialized medicine" incarnate! Why
Republicans would want to protect the current'
system, a system in which 45 percent of cur-
rent health-care costs are,paid bythe govern-
ment Medicare, Medicaid, military insurance,
etc., 36 percent by private insurance plans and
14 percent is paid for out-of-pocket by the indi-
vidual, I'll never know. "
And what about partisanship in Tallahassee?
This is tougher. I mean, there are a few
Democrats in the state legislature, .one just
never hears much from them. I have this image
of them standing along the baclh wall timidly

Failing parents
I agree with much of Michael
Reagan's commentary ("Failing
schools imperil U.S.," March 17)
regarding the importance of an edu-,
cation to the individual as well as to
the global competitiveness of a
nation. But I don't believe the school
system is the main culprit of our
failure. Parents are the most impor-
tant element of education. I've seen
too many situations where the
schoolchildren do not respect their
school, teacher, classmates or value
education: No amount of money will
compensate for a poor attitude and
lack of effort. The most.gifted
teacher cannot overcome a parent's
disinterest or lack of involvement.
At some point in our history, it
became the government's respon-
sibility to produce educated, pro-
ductive citizens. How is that work-
intg out for us?

Singing wresers
I am writing to recognize an
organization that seems to do much
for our Nassau County communi-
ty. I have attended several CCW Pro
Wrestling events the past several
years; these events seemed to have
been done as fundraisers for non-
profit organizations.
I recently attended the March
20 show in Yulee at which many of
the wrestlers came out at intermis-
sion to take pictures and sing happy
birthday to a handicapped child in
attendance.
This was very special and
showed a lot of compassion. I want
to say thank you and I am very
proud to see events such as this to
come to Nassau County.

Passage of the health care bill is
a disaster that can (and might)
destroy our economy. Democrats
"promised" a cost under $1 trillion
and cited misleading CBO "scores"
based on -bogus assumptions.
Supporters of all such legislation
must be held accountable.
I propose a "Tyranny Prevention
Performance Bond" (TPPB) to be
attached as a universal addendum to
all federal legislation, with three
conditions which legislators
explicitly accept by their affirma-
tive vote:
1. The claimed and "scored" cost
of the legislation obviously should
not be exceeded, but history has
proven that we cannot trust politi-
cians. In the event that annual costs

VIEWPOINT/VICE MAYOR ERic CHILDERS/FERNANDINA BEACH



'There oughta be a lawx


There is a domino effect that is erod-
ing our civil liberties. "There oughta
be a law" has turned into a reality.
Here are a few examples. Twenty-five
years ago, they said, "There oughta be a law,
let's limit the areas you can drive on the
beach" because there are too many cars on the
beach'and it's just not safe. Now that's not
enough, "let's not allow anyone to drive or
park anywhere on any beach," it's a danger to
pedestrians and the environment. I think four-
tenths of a mile of beach parking at Peters
Point is acceptable. It may seem trivial, but
over 25 years, beach driving has been all but
eliminated, our children and grandchildren
will never enjoy the freedom we enjoyed as
young adults. If the trend continues, seniors
who can drive onto the beach with their
chairs, umbrellas, coolers and grills will no
longer be able to do so.
The city skatepark is closed unless there is
a supervising city employee present. Will the
city basketball or tennis courts be next? Let's
open the park without supervision from dawn
to dusk. If you believe your kids should be
supervised, supervise them.
What's next?
Dogs. A few people fail to exercise common
courtesy and we hear the cry "there oughta be
a law," let's ban all dogs from the beach!
You're kidding me, right?
What about the 90 percent of responsible
dog owners? Why not turn North End Park
into a "free" oceanside dog park where
humans and dogs alike can enjoy the freedom
of socializing with other dogs in a leash-free
environment.
Recently, one citizen wrote:
"Why do you allow people to ride 1,000-
pound horses down the beach they put in at


Peters Point Park and head
north every time, all the
Sway to the pier? This is
solely inside the city limits
and through some of the
most congested beaches.
Don't you and the other
commissioners realize the
liability of one of these
_- horses being spooked by a
Childers dog and either throwing
the rider or, worse yet,
trampling some little kid?
There are probably only 10 to 20 people who
even own horses here. The people who ride
them on the beach are the same ones every
time. So by banishing horseback riding on the
beach, you are protecting the public while
inconveniencing a few."
Will we hear the battle cry again? "There
oughta be a law" outlawing horseback riding
on the: beach? After all, we're protecting the
public and only "inconveniencing a few."
Next, someone is hurt or killed by a care-'
less surfer;
So "there oughta be a law" banning surf-
boards; after all, we're protecting the public
and only "inconveniencing a few"?
Then someone is bitten by a shark, a fisher-
man is blamed for using live bait or someone
steps on a hook or loses an eye, hooked by
someone casting a line -
"There oughta be a law"?
What about holes dug in the sand by chil-.
dren? Should sandcastles be outlawed to pre-
vent falls and protect the public?
Sound farfetched? I don't think so, just read
the recent letters to the editor and keep in
mind it's a crime to "toast" your wedding or
play "fetch" with your dog on the beach. One

really?

principle our country was founded on, the
principle of protecting the few from the majori-
ty, is all but forgotten. Are we so bitter as a
nation that we are willing to infringe on these
simple liberties because of accident's or incon-
siderate people? Civil liberties are always
taken away quietly, slowly, one at a time and
usually inconveniencing "just a few." While
some of these examples are, admittedly,
extreme, the net effect: everyone eventually
falls victim to this mentality and we all suffer,
our society suffers.
I'm not saying that all social legislation is
bad, the "noise ordinance" is an example. If
you look closely, a police officer will make the
determination whether an infraction has
occurred; and why not, we trust them to carry
guns and make a split-second "life and death"
decision; surely they can decide if "noise" is
creating a public nuisance.
As a kid I was taught America is a "melting
pot." When did that change? I believe it is each
of our responsibility to embrace and nurture
our individuality, uniqueness, diversity and
personal liberties rather than forcing compli-
ance to the vocal minority. Locally, only about
20 percent bother to vote. The rest of us are
either happy with the way things are or are so
frustrated we don't bother. There is a solution:
Get involved, review your representative's
records and positions on upcoming issues,
call, e-mail or write your local, state and feder-
al representatives, come to City Hall, go to the
county commission meetings and speak your
mind and, most importantly, vote.
It's a relatively small price to pay but with-
out you, the vocal minority will prevail. "There
oughta be a law."

WEDNESDAY. March 24.2010 NEWS News-Leader


Spring

I'm beginning to see a pat- e
tern here. In early spring last v
year I got the flu and so did g
Bucko. We got better by hang- c
ing out in the backyard in the s
sun for a couple of days, drink- c
ing juice and watching wildlife. b
It was great, the best vacation c
ever, despite our health: o
And this year it happened s
again, at least I
to me. It was d
Saturday, the nm
first day of to
Spring, and I c
had a fever.
Of all week-
ends to get
sick, this was
not one I
WILD would have'
WAYS chosen. My
gal friends
and I had
Pat been plan-
end camping
trip for weeks who would
bring what food, what games,
what camping gear, the wood,
the kindling, etc.
But a day ahead of our week-
end I came down with the flu.
No camping for me.,.With a
fever, cough, sore throat and no
energy to spare, instead I spent
my weekend home alone,
sacked out on a lounge chair in
the backyard sun. I spent my
time drinking fruit juice, brows-
ing a stack of accumulated
unread magazines, and, more
than anything.else, dozing off.
But even in my sad sack
state Iawas aware of the life sur-
rounding me. With my eyes
shut, reclining, foggy-headed, I
tuned into the sounds of nature
that fill my backyard, often with-
out my acknowledgement.
From high in the sky behind
the woods, I heard our resident
red-shouldered hawk screech
its call into the wind. Soon most
likely, I thought, it would fly in
to roost in the neighbor's
sycamore tree. But right now
this tree was occupied by crows.
I knew that with my eyes closed:
I heard four or five of them caw-
ing from the tree.
A flock of ground doves flut-
tered noisily to the ground to
feed on birdseed spilled from
the feeders. Lots of little chirps
came from the bushes near the
woods, maybe the ever-present
yellow-rumped warblers that flit
back and forth across the pond,
or maybe sparrows, who can
tell? I -was-too-exhausted and....
somnolent to look.
But then an unusual series of
bird calls from the butterfly gar-
den behind me broke the rou-
tine. What was this, a confer-
ence of birds, challenging each
other to a singing competition?
For a moment or so I drowsily
focused on this symphony,
these many different calls all
from one location, but then my
curiosity overcame my lassitude
and I had to stir.myself, sit up,
turn around and look.
It turned out that all these
different calls came from a sin-
gle bird perched tall on a top
branch of the bottlebrush tree
highlighted by the sun. A mock-
ingbird, the state bird of Florida,
was living up to its name. As I
watched through my binoculars
I could see its beak move, and
its throat inflate, producing a
variety of calls of different bird
species and maybe some origi-
nal tracks thrown in too. This
mockingbird was showing off
its mimicry skills the more
calls the better, displaying its
maturity and fitness and hop-
ing to impress a mate.
Since I was roused anyway
from my torpor, I decided to
stroll over to the woods at the
edge of the pond to see if I could
spot those little unidentified
chirpy birds. I was intently
searching the bushes for those
little birds and then I looked
down. Right at my feet, nearly
stepped on, was otter scat!
There was not just one pile,
but three, fragrant with otter
musk that penetrated my foggy
brain and my blocked up sinus-
es with the long remembered
smell of my old otter friends at
Marine World, Bayou and
Cajun, Albion and Delta. The
scat was fresh, full of crayfish
shells, perfect signs that otters,
three of-them, had recently
passed this way.
Back on imny lounge chair, I
jotted some notes in our back-


yard journal and settled down to
nap again, exhausted from this
short burst of activity. I dozed.
I was a young woman again at
Marine World entering the otter
pens. I opened the padlock to
the first gate. Bayou and Cajun
heard me and rushed to the
gate, chuckling their otter greet-
ing, Hmm, Hmm, Hmmm." I
called out my own greeting
chuckle, "Otters, where are my
otters?" in the voice they had
grown up loving. Then I opened
the last padlock between them
and me and entered their pen.
With them lunging at my legs,
I found a dry spot on the con-
crete floor and sat down at their
level. Cajun and Bayou bound-


fever

;d into my lap, rubbing the
warm smelly musk of their oil
glands on my clothes, finding a
comfortable spot on my lap, and
ettling in, chuckling, while I
aressed them and chuckled
back. Happy and relaxed in our
ommunal scent two-thirds
otter, one-third human they
settled down to sleep on my lap.
relaxed against the cin-"
derblock wall, happy to be with
ny family, a trio of us mammals
totally content in each other's
company.
It may have been a fever-


induced dream, or maybe the
cold medicine. But I think it's
more. It was the first day of
spring, after all, the spring equi-
nox, a special moment in time
when the days and nights are
equal and life is rebounding. I
think, really, what I had was a
solid case of Spring Fever.
And here's hoping every
year I have it again.

JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader

Fernandina Beach Police
arrested a second suspect
Thursday in the March 16
home invasion robbery at
Amelia by the Sea condomini-
ums.
Detectives secured an arrest
warrant for Christopher
Dewayne WeAver, 25, of 2955A
First Ave. in Fernandina Beach
and the SWAT team executed a
search warrant at his home,
which yielded a .45 caliber semi-
automatic handgun thought to
be used in the robbery, accord-
ing to a press release issued
Friday.
Weaver allegedly brandished
the gun during the robbery and
placed it on several of the vic-
tim's chests or necks to intimi-
date them, authorities said.
According to Fernandina Beach
Police, the suspects reportedly
took cash and marijuana and
fled the scene on foot.
Weaver was taken into cus-
tody without incident at his
home, the release stated. He is
charged with armed home inva-
sion robbery and is being held
in lieu of $100,002 bond at the
Nassau County Jail.
He joins alleged accomplice
Michael John Nichols of
Atlantic Beach, who was arrest-
ed March 16 following a traffic
stop at Eighth and Jasmine
streets and charged with home

Both Nichols and Weaver
first visited the condo about 1:30
a.m. along with two females and
claimed to be looking for a
party, according to an incident
report. They told the spring
breakers they could see them
partying from the beach, were
subsequently invited inside, the
report stated; and hung out for
about an hour before leaving.
The victims reported they did
not know the suspects before
they arrived at the door.
About an hour later, the men
returned, forced their way in
and left with anywhere between
$225 and $350 cash froni a lock-
box under one of the guest's
beds, which was money pooled
by the group to use for the
week, the report stated.
According to the report,
Weaver, while visiting the first
time, exchanged phone num-
bers with one of the victims,
and both of the suspects were
photographed while the group
partied.

Prison population down



in U.S., but not Florida


GINA PRESSON
Florida News Connection
TALLAHASSEE A yearly
tally of state prison populations
shows that, nationwide, num-
bers are lower than the previ-
ous year for the first time since
1972 but not in Florida.
The number of inmates in
state prisons at the beginning
of this year was 0.4 percent
lower nationally than in 2009,
.about 5,000. less for a total of
around 1.4 million. But, with an
increase of 1,500 prisoners,
Florida was second only to
Pennsylvania in the increased
number, of people behind
bars.
Adam Gelb, director of the
Public Safety Performance
Project for the Pew Center on
the States, which issued the
report, says the statistics
demonstrate a shift in thinking
has occurred within many
states on managing public safe-
ty.
"There was an old way of
approaching this issue: 'How
do I demonstrate that I'm tough

With an increase,,of 1,500 prisoners, Florida
was second only to Pennsylvania in the
increased number of people behind bars.


on crime?' But now, more and
more policymakers are asking
a better question: 'How do I get
taxpayers a better public safety
return for their dollars?'"
The tendency is to believe:
incarcerating more people is
an indication a state is experi-
encing a lot of crime, says Gelb,
while other factors are involved.
"Prison populations and how
much we pay for prisons is not
something that is just deter-
mined by crime rates and
demographic trends. It really
is significantly a function of, the
decisions that are made by leg-
islators, governors, parole
boards and the courts about
who they send to prison and
for how long."
Some states with the great-
est prison population declines
released inmates under new


parole programs to save money,
while others attempted new
approaches such as treatment
centers for drug offenders,
early parole for non-violent
inmates and reduced sentences
for juvenile offenders.
Florida Tax Watch says
implementing these efforts
here could save the state an
estimated $450 million over the
next two years.
More than 100,000 inmates
are serving time in Florida's
prisons, and studies show more
than a quarter of those released
each year are back tlehind bars
within three years. The study
recommends investing more
money in rehabilitation to
reverse that trend.

Tevin Thompson, a senior at Yulee High School, claimed the girls discus title at the prestigious Bob Hayes
Invitational track and field meet at Raines High School Saturday.



Thompson wins title at Bob Hayes


BETH JONES
News-Leader
Tevin Thompson knows her way
around many sports venues. When she
moved to Texas from Yulee last year, the
6-foot-2 senior was immediately a pres-
ence at the net for the Yulee High School
volleyball team. When basketball season
rolled around, she was a threat under the
net
Thompson captured the first Bob
Hayes invitational track and field title
Saturday for Yulee High School. She won
the girls discus throw with a toss of 136
feet. Her personal best was thrown two
days earlier against Baldwin, 140-3.
Thompson opted not to compete in the
shot put, but said she regrets that decision.
"I don't think I'm as strong in the shot
put as I am in district," Thompson said.
"But when my parents got there, they
asked why I didn't do the shot put. I'm a
little nervous. My shot put is not as natu-
ral feeling as the discus.
"But I would have been able to hang in
there."
"I believe she would have placed if not
won both," YHS track coach Bryan Libby
said. "She would have placed high in the
shot down there as well."
Libby couldn't have been more pleased
when Thompson transferred to Yulee High
School last fall.
"I was really excited when she got
here," he said. "I don't want to mess her
up.That's my biggest fear. I help her when
I can.
"I can't take any of the credit for her.
She came from Texas. I'm just happy to
have her. I believe she could be the state
champion. She fell in our lap and she
makes us better."
Libby thinks Thompson may have the
top performance for any Nassau County


Thompson winds up to throw the
discus Monday at Yulee High
School as the Hornets prepare for a
meet Thursday in Hilliard. Yulee
hosts the county meet April 1.

aill, i, at the pi- ligei. ,- .-ni held annu-
ally at Raines High School in Jacksonville.
"She might be the first one in the coun-
ty (to win at the Bob Hayes)," Libby said.
"I grew up in this county and I don't
remember anybody ever doing well in
that. I believe she would be the first in
the county overall and it puts us on the
map anyway.


"It's the biggest one-day event in the
country. There were over 80 schools there
and she did well."
This wasn't Thompson's first taste of
success in track and field. Last year as a
junior, she placed third in the state of
Texas in the discus throw. She was also the
region and district champion,
She nearly advanced to state in the
shot put as well.
"I got beat out from state by like five
inches," Thompson said. "I threw 40 feet
7. The other girl threw 40-11 and that was
all she wrote."
But Thompson was was first in the dis-
trict and second in the region in the shot.
Thompson said she knew little of the
Bob Hayes meet.
"I was really, really shocked,"
Thompson said. "Coach asked if I wanted
to do it and I said, 'Sure.' It's a really good
track meet. It's like the biggest tract meet
in the country.
"I got a little intimidated, but with all the
preparation I do, I shouldn't have any-
thing to worry about."
And she didn't
Thompson and her teammates will be
'in action Thursday at a meet hosted by
Hilliard. Yulee hosts the county meet April
1 and, after week off for spring break, the
district track meet is at Bradford County.
Bolles will host the regional meet.
"I want to top off at at least 150 and
maybe 40-42 feet in shot put and make it
to state," Thompson said.
"I always set a goal and I always want
to reach it. It depends on how my mind set
is and how focused I stay."
Yulee was represented Saturday by
three athletes. Darius Calhoun, a junior,
placed 10th in the mile with a time of 4:55
and Jake Litecky, a sophomore, had his
personal best leap in the high jump at 6-
foot-2, but he didn't place.

Hawthorne 10-0


Pirates wearing pink today


After losing to Glynn Acade-
my and Bolles earlier in the
week, Yulee improved its re-
cord to 8-4 by beating Haw-
thorne 10-0 Saturday.
Andrew Minor threw a com-
plete game, seven-inning shut-
out, giving up three hits, strik-
ing out five and walking one.
He threw a total of 63 pitches in
the outing to improve his
record to 3-0.
The score was scoreless
until the top of the fourth inning
when Yulee scored its first runs
of the day.
Minor led all hitters, going
4-for-5 with a pair of home runs,
a triple, five RBIs and two runs
scored. Jonathan Beaton (3-for-
4 with a double, a run and an
RBD and Marcus Taylor (2-for-
5 with a run scored) also had
multiple hits on the day. Cody
Layfield (two runs), Buck Ma-
rell (run), Zach Camp (RBD,
Jeremy Taylor (run), C.J. Shel-
ton (double and run) and
Taylor Massey (run) also con-
tributed to the offensive pro-
duction for Yulee.
"After losing two games ear-
lier in the week to two good,
college-level type pitchers, it
was nice to see our bats come
alive," said Will Minor, head
baseball coach at Yulee High
School. "Andrew had a big day
both on the mound and at bat.
I was most impressed by his
pitch count on the day (63 pitch-
es in seven innings of-work).
"Our defense made .good
plays behind him (only one
error on the day) and we just
made them swing the bat. We
had four innings where he
threw less than 10 pitches an
Yulee (8-4 and 2-1 in the dis-
trict) played at Lee Tuesday


and travels to First Coast
Thursday. The Hornets host
Gainesville-Eastside at 7 p.m.
Friday.
The Fernandina Beach
Pirates went 1-2 last week,
blanking Raines 14-0 Tuesday
before falling to Ponte Vedra
10-7 Thursday and Episcopal
10-0 Friday.
"We truly have not played
very well," FBHS Coach Ken
Roland said. "I feel like we're
going to bounce back and get
over the hump. We practice
hard and play hard and the kids
are committed.
"They're not going to quit.
We're going to keep playing."
The Pirates are 4-9 on the
season and 1-2 in the district.
Bobby Severance and Bob-
by Oliver combined on the
mound for a'perfect game
against Raines.
"They pitched well, threw
strikes. They didn't have a run-
ner reach base," Roland said.
Harrison Yonn hit his sec-
ond home run of the season..
"Everybody played and
everybody left happy," Roland
said.
The celebration was short-
lived as the Pirates suffered
back-to-back losses Thursday
and Friday.
The Pirates trailed Ponte
Vedra 7-1, but rallied to tie th.
game at 7-7 on a thrr-,:-r un
homer by Myles Rabant.
"We immediately go out and
give up three," Roland said. "It's

Gators may be disappointing but headed in


DI despite a disappointing first-round
exit from the NCAATournament
last week, the University of Florida
basketball team took a big step for-
ward in 2010. As difficult as it might have been
for fans to watch their team choke away a win
(not once, but twice) in double overtime
against BYU, the mere fact the Gators we're in
position to win the game speaks volumes for
how far they have come after back-to-back NIT'
appearances.
Not many, including yours truly, thought
Florida deserved to even be in the tourna-
ment, let alone as a 10-seed, after losing five of
its last six games. So, for the Gators to fight
tooth and nail and come up just a bucket short
of icing the game in regulation and again in
the first overtime period, however maddening
at the time, was a good sign Billy Donovan is
this close to having his team back as serious
contenders. It might be just a matter of adding
depth to a squad that returns pretty much
intact.
Florida will welcome back every player


next season minus forward
Dan Werneir, which might
prove to be addition by sub-
traction considering the sen-
ior underachieved mightily
after coming to town as New
Jersey's "Mr. Basketball" out
of high school. Add to that
jthe fact the Gators have gar-
nered two big commitments
power forward Patric
SPORTS Young out of Providence
High School in Jacksonville
TALK and small forward Casey
Prather out of Jackson,
JOHN L. Tenn., who many expect to
CRAWFORD make an immediate impact
-- and Florida might be one
guard away from not having
to sweat it out on Selection Sunday next
March ...
Speaking of Florida's need for guard depth,
Donovan and company currently have their
sights set on Fort Lauderdale PG Brandon


Knight, who many have compared to
Kentucky freshman phenom John Wall. Talk
about an immediate impact, Wall might very
well lead the Wildcats to a national champi-
onship this season before jumping ship to the
NBA.
While I'm sure Gator fans would prefer to
get a player who plans on sticking around for
more than one season, having an electric
guard to compliment a senior front court of
Chandler Parsons, Alex Tyus and Vernon
Macklin could make for a special 2010-11 sea-
son. Knight also has offers from UConn,
Kentucky, Kansas and Miami, so Donovan has
his work cut out to lure the kid to Gainesville
Florida State's 67-60 loss to Gonzaga in the
first round of The Big Dance Friday is
undoubtedly a huge disappointment, but likely
not a huge surprise to fans. Because while I've
always admired FSU head coach Leonard
Hamilton, you can't ignore the fact the
Seminoles have underachieved under his
watch, especially the last two years. To expect


right direction
anything from the FSU basketball team is,
quite frankly, setting yourself up for disap-
pointment.
Defensively, you couldn't ask for much
more from the boys in garnet and gold, who in
2009-10 led the nation in defensive efficiency
and held opponents to a 43.5 field goal per-
centage, which was seventh in the country.
Offensively, something has to change. The
Seminoles were ranked 127th in the country
in overall offensive efficiency, including 90th
in field goal percentage, 326th in turnover per-
centage and 135th in free throw percentage.
It's hard to fathom how a team so chock full of
athletes could produce numbers like that.
In football, they say defense wins champi-
onships, which I wholeheartedly agree with.
Basketball, however, tends to be a game of
offensive runs. With that said, it would
behoove Hamilton and the Seminoles if the
coach could net a few players who have the
ability to take over a game.

The Fernandina Beach
High School junior varsity
baseball team hosted
Episcopal Friday in what
turned out to be a pitching
.duel. Brandon Sanborn start-
ed on the mound and
received a no-decision for the


Pirates, going 4 2/3 innings
and giving up two runs on
four hits, walking four and
striking out three.
"Brandon, a freshman
pitcher, stepped up and did a
heck of a job against one of
the better teams on our
schedule," FBHS Coach Jude
Swearingen said. "I think -
Brandon's nerves got to him
a little in the first inning when
he gave up three of their four"
hits from the night and
picked up their first run.
"Then a 1-2-3 double play
with the bases loaded seemed
to calm him down and he bat-
tled for the rest of the night
until the fifth, when he gave
up a two-out walk and double
to score their only other run
on the night"
Avery Womble came in for
relief of Sanborn and picked
up the win, going 2 1/3
innings and giving up no runs
on no hits and striking out
three.
The Pirates only managed
three runs on the night but
got them when they needed
them.
Jake Withers, (one run,
one base on balls, a stolen
base) walked in the third to
lead off the inning, stole sec-
ond and was driven in by
Nick Crawford's rip through
the first baseman's legs.
The Pirates entered the


seventh inning trailing 2-1
when Brendan Manning (sin-
gle, a run) stepped to the
plate and ripped a single into
left field to start the Pirates'
rally.
"I told him it was his time,
he had struggled earlier in
the game and I told him to
live in the future and not the
past and that's exactly what
he did," Swearingen said.
With Manning on first,
Drew Bowman (single, a run)
and Logan Vendola both
reached base on infield bunts
for hits. Jake.Foley (single,
RBI, one BB) worked the
count to 3-2, fouled off a hand-
ful of pitches, and was
walked, which brought in the
tying run for the Pirates.
Crawford was then hit by a
pitch to drive in the winning
run, giving the Pirates a 3-2
win.
"After making-seven
errors in our last game, and
to come out and pitch and
play defense like we did really
shows that our kids are learn-
ing how to win as well as
developing the skills needed
to step on the varsity field,"
said assistant coach Tony
Crawford.
The Pirates traveled to
Fleming Island Monday, host-
ed Glynn Academy Tuesday
and host West Nassau
Thursday.

Croake claims individual honors Wednesday


March has been a fickle month for
the blitz when it comes to the weather,
as one day each week has been fine, the
other so-so. St Patrick's Day was one of
those so-so days when rain or the threat
of rain resulted in a small turnout of 36
players in the Wednesday blitz at th'e
Fernandina Beach Golf Club. Individual
honors went to Jack Croake, who had a
78 and plus 7 points. Mike Lovejoy fin-
ished second with an 81 plus 6. There
was a tie for third place at plus 5
between Paul Hensler (88) and John
LaFear (81).
With a small turnout, the group was
divided into three-man teams with first
place at plus 6 going to Lovejoy (plus 6),
Charles Benefield (93, plus 2) and
Claude Hartley (96, minus 2).
Second place at plus 2 went to Tom
Gray (89, plus 1), Charles Helenbrook
(94, plus 1) and Price Poole (76, even).
Even was good enough for Dennis
Sassenger (80, plus 4), Lind Swenson
(89, minlus 2) and Charles Kicklighter
(85, minus 2) to finish in third place.
Croake's plus 7 received no help
from Bob Dorsey (81, minus 5) and
Andy Palmisano (91, minus 3), but the
team managed to hang on to take fourth
place at minus 1.
With clear skies and'warmer weath-
er, Friday was a good day for playing
golf as 77 players came out to partici-
pate in the blitz. Jim Gibson had the
round of the week with a 77, good for
plus 10 points and individual honors.
John LaFear had another good outing as
he shot a 77 and plus 8 points to finish
second. There was a tie at plus 7 for
third place between Larry Gallo (85),
Carl O'Rourke (76) and Russell Shanks
(82).
The only five-man team in the field.
was an all-plus team headed by Shanks
(plus 7) and included Ron Therriault
(87, plus 5), Freelon Pate (90, plus 3),
Jim Pierce (81, plus 3) and Jack
Harrison (89, plus 2) finishing in first
place at plus 20.
O'Rourke's plus 7 also got help from
Harry Gibbs' (88, plus 3) and Jim
McFarland (95, plus 3) to go along with
Allen Sage (87, minus 1) as the team
came in second at plus 12.
Third place at plus 11 went to the
team that included Gibson (plus 10),
Jim Raffone (87, plus 4), Ed Lormand
(97, minus 1) and Rudy Campanale
(100, minus 2). Fourth place at plus 9
was claimed by the team of Larry
Brauda (80, plus 5), Bob Brewer (83,
plus 4), Al Jump (89, plus 3) and Jack
Croake (87, minus 3).

Uu second In Geo a
The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour
made its second of nine stops in the
Peach State over the weekend in
Braselton, Ga., and was greeted with its
largest field size of the year, with 108
players representing 16 distinct coun-
tries from the U.S. to Estonia to Ireland
and Iceland who competed to the very
end for the 1,500 HJGT Player of the
Year points and a tournament exemp-
tion from the AJGA for the boys 16-19
and girls overall champion. Also at stake
in the season's second Major
Championship was a special perform-
ance based exemption for the boys 13-
15 division champion into the AJGA
Junior'All-Star Series.
Rounding out the weekend's spring
championship was the girls 10-14 divi-
sion, where despite playing a very undu-
lated course, the girls managed to post
scores well-below expectations.
Michaela Owen of Alpharetta, Ga.,
trailed Vitoria Teixiera by three shots
heading into the final round; however,
with two birdies Sunday, she was able to
move past the round-one leader and
shoot a final round 75, to give her a two-
day total, 158, five strokes ahead of her
next closest competitor. Following
behind Owen this weekeifd was
Stephanie Liu of Fernandina Beach,
who despite shooting an 85 in her open-
ing round, was able to turn it around
and post a seven-over-par 78 to finish
the tournament with a twb-day total 163.

Springhill teams



battle to a draw


When splitting up last
year's championship squad
into two teams for the 2010
season, the coaches were
determined to split the talent
as equally as possible. This
desire became a reality
Saturday as the Angels and
Saints battled to an 8-8 draw
in Family Driven Softball
League action.
It was determined by the
board of directors, the tim-,
pires end the game in error,
as ASA rules state no game
may end in a tie. If that out-
come plays a factor in deter-
mining the 2010 league cham-
pion, the game will be
resumed at a later date.
"It's like kissing your sis-
ter," said Saints shortstop
Ben Guest as the game con-
cluded.
The game was possibly
one of the best games with
drama in every inning, yet the
brotherly love exhibited by
both squads kept the action in
perspective. The game was
highlighted by guest announ-
cer Dewayne Sumner, who
happens to be the interim pas-
tor for Springhill and quite
the comedian. The game was
also attended by former
Pastor Jackie Hayes.
The Saints jumped out
early 3-0 due to three fielding
errors by the Angels. Guest,
Chris McKinney and Jordan
Darby each recorded a dou-
ble in the first inning. The
Angels finally got on the
scoreboard in the third inning
on a double by shortstop and
music minister Sean Gossett.
Both defenses had control of
the game until the bottom of
the fourth inning when Mike
Darby hit a one-bouncer to
the fence to record his first
double on the day.
Going into the final inning,
the Angels found themselves
down 6-3 with two runners.
on. Jeff Abel hit a blast that
scored two and landed him-
self at third base for a triple.
As the Saints' defense attemp-
ted to secure a throw to home
plate, Abel used his speed to
get under a tag at home plate
to tie the game at 6-6.
The Saints finally got the
Angels out and took their
turn at the bat for the final
inning. Angels pitcher John
Culbreth struck out one bat-
ter and held the Saints off
going scoreless, which set up
extra innings. The Angels


took the lead for the first time
in the game, led by Buddy
Jones and Cristina Eaton as
two runs came across the -
plate.
But the Saints were not
done as Mike Darby got his
second double. The Saints
scored two before the game
ended on defensive heroics
by Abel, who threw out a run-
ner attempting to score as
Angels first basemen Jones
covered at the plate. This is
the second time this season
Abel has thrown out a runner
from the outfield.
The Saints and Angels
vowed the outcome will be
decided with or without FDSL
jurisdiction as they have
already planned a cookout
together at the end of the
year and will restart the game
going into the ninth inning
with an 8-8 score, except this
time it will be a kick ball
game and the children will be
allowed to play.
Jack Martin went 4-for-4
and scored four runs with a
double as Celebration Team
One defeated Five Points 17-
5. With only three games left,
Christ Walk took a two-game
lead in the standings as it
defeated Celebration Team
Three 12-2. Jason Brown went
3-for-3 for the victors. The
Journey may have doused
Celebration Team Two's
chance at a run for the cham-
pionship as they won the
game 19-8. Charley Deberry
and Derek Bellar both went 2-
for-2 at the plate, scoring.two
runs each.
Fernanditia Beach Church
of Christ defeated Lannie
Road Baptist Church 16-13.
Tony West led the victors,
going 4-for-5 at the plate. The
Bridge defeated First Baptist
Team One 22-11. For the first
time this season, players of
the week honors go to a pair
of teammates as The Bridge's
Jonathan Simmons went 4-for-
4 at the plate with a double
and a home run and Frankie
Keen went 4-for-4 with two
triples.
In the final game of the
day, Yulee Baptist Church
defeated Celebrati6n Team
Four 13-2. Julie Peterson went
3-for-4 for Yulee. ,
With just three weekends
left, the FDSL plays at the

the last three greens in regulation, making a remarkable par save
from a bunker washed out byeadrier rains, then hitting what he called

to provide an easy solution. For the
uphill bunker shot, address the ball
with It forward in your stance and
Syur shoulders tilted more than
normal. You do this with your shoulders in order to
hit through the ball without digging too much sand
out as you make your swing on the ball. There can
be no denying that the downhill bunker shot is the
more difficult of the two shots. The biggest prob-
lem that the amateur golfer has is getting the ball
up quick enough to get it out of the bunker. Your
hands need to be ahead of the ball to create a
descending blow. The most important aspect is
that you have to hit the ball with authority to get it
out of the bunker rapidly.


Tiger Woods announced that he will be returning to golf very soon. He will compete in ,
the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Ga. which is held April 5-11. On Sunday, Woods
told ESPN's Tom Rinaldi in a five-minute interview that his wife and mother were o -
"brutal" on him during the sex scandal that rocked the sports world and his marriage, and
led him to take a hiatus from golf. "They've both been very tough. Because I hurt them the
most. Those are the two people in my life who I'm closest to and to say the things that I've
done, truthfully to them, is ... honestly ... was ... very painful," Woods said. While Tiger did not become
emotional during the interview, Rinaldi said that before the cameras started rolling, it was obvious the
scandal had taken its toll. "He came in, he was composed, he was very cordial with me and the crew,"
Rinaldi said. "In that moment, before we actually rolled, you could see the weight upon him."

shooting four rounds in the 60s to win The Players
Championship. Norman's score, the lowest in tourna-
ment history, was four better than runner-up Fuzzy
Zoeller. Even though, Norman won The Open
Championship twice, in 1986 and 1993, he will be forev-

fueled by his myriad near-misses in The Masters, the

OUTDOORS


WEDNESDAY, MARCi i24,2010/NEWS-LEADER


Some rainy




day bassin'


"Looks like it's going to
rain any moment," Norman
Bray said. "You can just smell
the rain in the air. It's definite-
ly going to rain and soon."
We had just launched four
small boats into Amelia Island
Plantation's 50-acre freshwa-
ter lake, where AIP Fish Club
members were competing for
the beautiful Bob Huffaker
bass trophy. Huffaker hand-
crafted the unique trophy,
which showcased a bass fish-
erman swinging a bass lure
into the mouth of a giant bass
deep in a freshwater lake and
from a homemade boat. The
largest bass caught and
released would win
Huffaker's trophy bass scene.
Only minutes after Bray
suggested the high possibility
of rain, a light rain began fol-
lowed by a steady rain for the
rest of the day.
"I don't know if the bass
fishing is going to be any
good with this low pressure
weather system arriving,"
Jack Healan said. 'The best
bass fishing I have experi-
enced has come just before a
front arrives or when a high
pressure system is present."
Our fishing party, includ-
ing Healan, Jim Maughon,
Bray and me, navigated our
bass boat with the electric
motor to the south end of the
lake. The remaining three
boats elected to fish the north
end of the lake, where typical-
ly bass will be found spawn-
ing during the spring fishing
season.
After an hour of casting a
variety of bass lures to the
shallow shoreline and into the
deep open waters of Red
Maple Lake, Bray had caught
the only bass. His bass had
taken a plastic Bush Hog in
the watermelon color pattern.
"I don't believe this two-
pound bass will win
Huffaker's trophy," Bray said
as he dislodged the worm


hook from
the bass's
mouth.
Terry
David
Lacoss soon
called me on
the cell
phone while
our fishing
OUTDOORS party navi-
-.... gated to the
Ter yLacoss north end of
the lake.
"Dad, do you have any
Sebile Stick Shads in the gold
color pattern?" he asked.
"The bass are really hitting
them and out in deep water
too. I just landed a bass that
looked to weigh every bit of
seven pounds while twitching
the Sebile lure just under the
surface."'
Lacoss's phone conserva-
tion indicated the majority of
Red Maple Lake's bass were
still in their pre-spawn mode
and holding in deep water.
Later that afternoon Jim
Daubel caught and released a
6.12-pound bass that proved
to be the members' largest
bass of the tournament. Many
of the smaller bass caught by
club members were caught
while working minnow-type-
lures just under the surface.
Brad Upham and Scott Hood
were able to catch and
release a pair of six-pound
bass for second-place honors
while fishing with Lacoss.
Dan Nolan teamed up with
Huffaker and hooked several
bass weighing to four pounds
while working plastic worms
and shad-type deep diving
lures along the brushy shore-
line of the bass lake. Billy
Kitrell and Roger Lundberg
experienced the same suc-
cess, catching most of their
bass with shallow running
bass lures.
"I really thought the bass
would jump all over topwater

ermen often paddle their
canoes or kayaks. Electric
motors are also used for larg-
er boats. Live bait fishing is
not allowed, simply because a
bass allowed to eat a barbed


live bait often becomes
hooked in the throat or stom-
ach, resulting in killing the
hooked bass.
Due to the extremely cold
winter, only a few bass have
begun to spawn, while the
majority of bass in North
Florida and South Georgia
lakes have not spawned yet.
Look for a major spawn to


take place during the remain-
der of March and during the
first few weeks of April.
Cold fronts will often force
spawning bass off their shal-
low-water spawning pattern to
nearby deep water. This was
exactly the bass pattern Jim
Daubel employed to win the
2010 Red Maple Lake Bass
Tournament.


OUTDOOR BRIEFS


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

Free vessel 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 seasons. Before hit-
ting 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 qualified mem-
bers of the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary and are the best
way of learning about prob-
lems 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 danger
on the water. Vessel safety


checks can be conducted on
any type of watercraft from
boats, personal watercraft to
kayaks.
Life jackets, fire extin-
guishers and distress signals
are just some of the items
required by federal regula-
tions. The Coast Guard also
suggests 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, sea-
manship and the most cur-
rent rules and regulations
that may also save a live or
prevent and accident. Visit
Flotilla 14-1 website at
http://cgaux7-14-1.org/.

Bassmaste" meet
Nassau Bassmasters, asso-
ciated with the BASS National
Federation and the Florida
BASS Federation, meets the

one at least 16 years old. Call

being sought by the U.S.
Coast Guard Auxiliary,
Flotilla 14-1, Amelia Island..

17 years of age and a U.S. citi-
zen. Training consists of

practical skills required to

member. Training is by quali-
fied Coast Guard Auxiliary
and active duty instructors on
Coast Guard Auxiliary ves-
sels.
Successful completion of
the Boat Crew training per-
mits the auxiliarist to crew
any U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary boat within their
district and the potential to
serve on board many differ-
ent U.S. Coast Guard vessels.
Crew qualified auxiliarists
may also advance to the high-
est on-water qualification of
coxswain, the small boat skip-
per.
This course includes
heavy weather seamanship,
advanced boat handling,
advanced navigation, search


and rescue and advanced tow-
* ing. Successful completion of
the coxswain training permits
the auxiliary member to skip-
per any U.S. Coast Guard "
Auxiliary boat within their
district. Training for both the
crew and coxswain positions
is free. Certain uniforms and
safety equipment are re- ,
quired and not reimbursed,
but may be tax-deductible.

The adventure travel


Pack time. Am off on another
adventure. This time? Up the
Amazon. The catalog clearly
describes the trip as "Up" the
Amazon we will travel from east
to west and cover some 2,000
miles. Starting in Belem, Brazil,
we will embark on the "Clellia II"
(what happened to one?), our .
boat home, for our great river
adventure.
The first half of the trip is on
the Lower Amazon and will take
us to Manaus where we witness
the famous "wedding of the
waters" where the Rio Solimoes
meets the Rio Negro. The second
half of the trip takes us on the


Upper Amazon and a stop in
Columbia and final destination,
Iquitos, Peru.
Adventure travel requires
careful planning. So the packing
drill has begun. First the duffle
bag (this time with wheels) and
then day by day a pile begins to
grow. As D Day (departure day)
approaches the piles will have to
be culled and decisions made. It
all has to fit in the duffle and
meet weight limits. I will have my
trusty backpack complete with all
my toys portable computer, my
Kindle, camera and phone. So
much for getting away from it all.

from mid-June through mid-

Children participating in
Camp Paw Prints will be bro-
ken into teams at the begin-
ning of camp. JHS will assign
each team a dog to teach
basic obedience, feed and
water, exercise and groom.
Each team's goal is to get
their dog adopted. JHS staff


will assign a new dog to a
team should that group's dog
get adopted during camp.
Kids will keep journals of
their experiences during the
program.
The cost of Camp Paw
Prints is $300 per child per
week. All campers receive a
T-shirt, goodie bag, snacks,
drinks and pizza on Fridays.
All activities and materials are
included in the price of the
camp.

Save here.



Let's face it. Right now, we're all looking to save. And you


probably don't expect to save in the same place where you find


great quality and get treated nicely. But actually, at Publix you'll


find thousands of items on sale every day-clearly marked, easy


to find, with savings highlighted on the shelf and'again on your


receipt. You'll notice Publix brand products, priced lower than


national brands without compromising quality. And along the


way, you'll get helpful service you can't quite put a price on.. So,


even when you're shopping on a budget, you don't have to give

up the experience you deserve.


Love to shop here. Love to save here.
