Kavanaugh appointed to HDC


In spite of resident Chuck Hall
being recommended for appointment
to the Historic District Council by its
members, city commissioners
approved the appointment of local
attorney Clinch Kavanaugh for the
position in a 3-2 vote at their Aug. 3
Mayor Susan Steger and
Commissioner Jeffery Bunch voted
for Hall. Steger and Kavanaugh are
cousins but she was instructed by the
city attorney that she could not recuse
herself from the vote for that reason.
Applicants for the board position
included Patricia Borns, Pranab Das,
Ron Machado and Kavanaugh, who
each received one vote by the HDC at
a recent meeting. Applicant Hall
received three votes for an alternate
position. Tom Duffy, who was a pre-

vious HDC board member and chair-
man, also put in an application but it
came in too late for the vote.
"No disparaging comments about
Mr. Hall, but I believe Mr. Kavanaugh
is better qualified," said Commissioner
Eric Childers. "He's got a passion for
this community, he's got a lot of his-
Story ... he's got letters of recommen-
dation, one of them from Professor
Tilson who he was instrumental in ...
writing the guidelines for Old Town."
But resident Mary Ann Howat
complained that Kavanaugh had wast-
ed the city's time and money in 2007-
8 by interfering with proceedings to
stop an intrusion of salt water into
Egans Creek Greenway. Kavanaugh's
position was that Egans Creek should
be restored to its so-called "natural
state," as shown on local historic
Some residents, after finding out
about Kavanaugh's appointment, also

expressed their disappointment by e-
mail to city commissioners. "The HDC
in its last meeting ... voted by a wide
margin to recommend ... Chuck Hall,"
wrote applicant Borns. "Mr.
Kavanaugh's periodic legal work on
behalf of the city and his legal repre-
sentation of numerous developers...
make this seem highly irregular with
regard to the board vetting process."
HDC Chair Suanne Thamm wrote
to Childers that she was "baffled" that
none of the commissioners asked why
the HDC voted for Hall. "The HDC
had the same applications for review
as you did, yet they reached dramat-
ically different conclusions," she
wrote. 'This is even more puzzling in
light of the comments... that the HDC
is the best performing committee in
the city. Or rather, WAS."

County questions

city boat ramp

relocation plan

News Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
have raised objections to a city plan to
build a new boat ramp under the Shave
SCounty Attorney David Hallman
recommended Tuesday that an out-
side engineering opinion be obtained
on whether the area under the bridge
would be safe for launching boats'.
Legal access to the property could also
be a problem, he said, as well as high
currents in the Amelia River.
"It seems to me like this (city) boat
ramp is working just fine," said County
Commissioner Danny Leeper at a joint
meeting of city and county commis-
sioners. "Is the need really there?"
County Commission Chair Mike
Boyle noted that there are boat
ramps throughout the county, includ-
ing a new ramp at Goffinsville Park in
Nassauville, and a ramp on the
north end of Amelia Island built with-

in the past decade
County Commissioner Barry
Holloway said that once the Goffinsville
Park ramp was built, he didn't hear
any more complaints in the county
about the need for a new boat ramp.
The proposal for the project first
came up at a city Waterfronts Florida
Partnership Committee meeting last
month, when committee members
brought up the possibility of moving
the boat ramp from the city marina.
The ramp, located at the foot of Ash
Street, has been described as a hazard
to pedestrians and an obstruction to a
proposed boardwalk along the city
City Manager Michael Czymbor
told city and county commissioners at
the joint local planning meeting that a
previous plan to move the ramp to the
south end of the city marina had
proved impractical.
According to Czymbor, the city

City skate park free,

no longer staffed

The city skate park on Tarpon
Avenue is no longer monitored by city
staff and is now a free park open to
the public, according to City Parks &
Recreation Director Nan Voit.
Voit said in an e-mail that staffing at
the park ended Aug. 1 and the con-
cession stand is no longer in opera-
tion. The measure would save the city
about' $26,000 a year, minus about
$10,000 in fees and revenue from the
concession stand, according to city
budget documents.
"We started opening the skate park
early in the morning a few months ago
because some users wanted to have
access in the mornings," Voit wrote.
"Staff arrived at 3 p.m. Monday-Friday
and stayed until 8 p.m. when they
would lock it up."
The park is now continuously open,
but not staffed at all.
When asked about the likelihood
of youngsters skateboarding without

. helmets, Volt said, "If a skater is with-
out a helmet then the best thing to do
would be to notify the police depart-
ment. The rules are clearly posted for
the skaters. When I drive by and see a
skater with no helmet I stop and tell
them to either leave or put their helmet
There have been complaints about
trash piling up at the park (See Voice
of the People, 7A). According to Voit,
a contractor is responsible for trash
pickup at the skate park and all other
beach parks.
A yearly pass for city residents used
. to cost $25, and $35 for non-residents.
Daily passes were $2 for city residents
and $5 for non-residents.
Skateboarders of all ages also no
longer need to sign a waiver and
release form to use the park.
City commissioners last March dis-
cussed the possibility of extending the
skate park's hours and decreasing
or eliminating city supervision of

My name is Joe Benner. I'm a life-
long resident of Fernandina Beach.
I suffer from many chronic health
problems, including ALS, a terminal
Condition more commonly know as
Lou Gehrig's disease.

Last year, I was involved in a
dispute with a Nassau County
Sheriff's Deputy that ended in him
seizing my arm and injuring it.
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves conducted
an investigation and fired the deputy, but I later learned he was subse-
quently rehired. The sheriffs office was investigated by the U.S.
Department of Justice for its actions in the case.

However, county officials did not take Seagraves to task for what I feel
was his attempt to sweep his deputy's actions under the rug. Therefore,
I cannot support any of the incumbent officials running for re-election
this year. I urge Nassau County.residents to consider my situation
when they go to the polls this month.

In South Florida, many high-rise bridges
are used for parks and boat ramps.'

received $100,000 from a
Florida Inland Navigation
District grant and $100,000
from a Florida Boating
Improvement Program grant
for a new boat ramp. City staff
and volunteers, he said in an e-
mail, have done most of the
site work at the city marina
and the city has paid consult-
ants Zev Cohen a "minor
amount for consultation and
meetings and for some sur-
veying work at the mariaa"
According to city Project
Manager Glenn Semanisin,
the construction costs to move
the boat ramp to the south end
of the marina Were more than
expected, at around $1 million,
and the plan only provided for
12 parking spaces. A boat
ramp under the Shave Bridge,
he said, would provide about
80 parking spaces but con-
struction costs would be about
$2 million.
"In South Florida, many
high-rise bridges are used for
parks and boat ramps,"
Semanisin said. The under-
bridge ramp, he said, would
be on the east side of the
City Commissioner Eric
Childers said he had heard of
a study done 10 years ago, in
which the area was deemed
not prudent for a boat ramp.
Semanisin countered that
the area east of the bridge was
large enough to excavate for a
boat basin, which would pro-
vide enough still water for
boats to be launched safely.
City Commissioner Arlene
Filkoff said she had asked

and questioned whether there
was a need for another ramp in
the county.
City Commissioner Jeffrey
Bunch said there was already
a boat launching area under
the Shave Bridge, but that it is
"a very dangerous, very nar:
row place."
"It's going to be real expen-
sive," Bunch said. "Where are
they going to put a six-lane
highway if they have a boat
ramp there?"
Boyle complained that if
the city wants to do a "grand
plan" on the waterfront, build-
ing an expensive, remote boat
ramp was not the way to go.
"I'm not sure you should trans-
fer the boat ramp outside the
city," he said.
Czymbor said the proposal
"isn't just a knee-jerk reaction"
and that Westrec, which now
runs the city marina, said the
city boat ramp is a hindrance
to its operation.
"In a master plan, we said
to move (the boat ramp) south
(of the city marina)," Czymbor
said. 'That's not the best site to
spend $1 million, plus $100,000
to dredge every four years. ...
We're not just trying to spend
money to spend it."
"I understand the current
boat ramp is an obstacle,"
Boyle said. "You should find
out what would happen if you
close the (city) boat ramp. You
know that if you have any
changes, one person is going
to complain.... You're vaulting
ahead here. If the need isn't
there, don't spend $1 million."
According to the county's
Department, there are nine
boat ramps in Nassau County.

Incumbent county commis-

fourth resigned.

Island sees rebound

in summer tourism

We've all noticed
the record high
over the past cou-
ple of months, but there's
another record high you
might have missed lodging
demand. Despite the persist-
ently sluggish economy,
Amelia Island's inns, hotels
and resorts enjoyed a 14 per-
cent increase in the number of
room nights sold in June,
making it thp best month
since2007. Better yet, July
looks to be even more suc-
cessful, with many properties
reporting occupancy at 90 per-
cent or better and room rev-
enue beating last year by dou-
ble digits.
These encouraging num-
bers are due in large part to
the continued strong support
of the tourism industry by the
Board of County
Commissioners. Earlier this
year, the commissioners sup-'
ported a request from the
lodging industry for a 1-cent
increase in the bed tax. That
action generated additional
funding critical to the
Convention & Visitors
Bureau's efforts to position
Amelia Island as a premiere
vacation destination. The bed
tax is a user fee paid only by
visitors who stay at one of our
island accommodations and
yet allows the CVB to help the
county's economy in its entire-
ty. With tourism businesses
employing one in every five
workers and generating 36
percent of the sales tax col-
lected in Nassau County, the
strong increase in summer
business is certainly a wel-
come event.
Since our marketing

ty, many aren't aware of our

dynamic combination of
advertising, promotions and
public relations. This year, for
the first time, Amelia Island
ran a combination of TV, radio
and interactive commercials in
Florida, Georgia, and the
Northeast U.S. (see our spots
on YouTube!). We've part-
nered with numerous national
publications to provide vaca-
tion giveaways to Amelia
Island, generating tremen-
dous exposure without
expending any marketing dol-
lars. In just the past few
months, Amelia Island has
been featured in Glamour,
Redbook and Women's Health
magazines and been offered
as the grand prize on Wheel of
Fortune. A partnership with
Harris Teeter allowed us to
provide special offers to their
millions of customers, while
another program provides dis-
counted vacations to active
duty military families.
A new and improved con-
sumer website -
Amelialsland.com was
launched in March and our
new mobile website went live
in June. Both provide numer-
ous opportunities for local
businesses to feature their vis-
itor offerings at no charge. In
May, the CVB launched a
$200,000 program to revitalize
the meetings business, which
is the lifeblood of our hotels. It
includes MeetOnAmelia.com,

a website created specifically
for meeting planners; a new
digital meeting planner guide;
and a new out-of-the-box TV
commercial that ran in major
markets including New York,
Philadelphia and Atlanta.
Finally, the CVB works
with more than 30 special
events annually to support
activities that bring visitors to
the island. Later this month,
we'll produce the Great
Southern Tailgate Cook-off to
increase late summer busi-
ness. In September, we're
hosting the USTA Women's
Futures Tennis event at
Amelia Island Plantation and
supporting the Autumn Fine
Arts Festival on Centre Street
In October, we're underwrit-
ing the appearance of Ramsey
Lewis at the Amelia Island
Jazz Festival, all as part of the
effort to bring more tourists
to the community during a
slow period.
While we are not out of the
woods yet with the current
economic situation, Amelia
Island is clearly seeing a posi-
tive, upward swing. With the
continued support of our
elected officials, tourism
stakeholders and the entire
community, we will build on
this recent momentum to
carry Amelia Island to a full
recovery as one of America's
most popular island destina-

NC I Newspapers,

Fruit doesn't fall far from tree

Have I been a good parent or a bad
one? When people meet my children,
do they cringe at their rearing or nod
approvingly? We look for some sort
of affirmation that we've done a good job rais-
ing our children other than that they're happy,
healthy, employed and not in jail. Kids get
report cards. Parents don't. Our grades often
come years later.
I had to stop early one morning recently on
my way to work and get some blood drawn for
my annual checkup. The waiting room was full
of people and I was feeling impatient. I looked
around the packed room and thought sourly,
yuck, I'll never get out of here. Worse, one 6f
the tests being done required that I not eat or
drink after midnight In a hurry to get to work,
a full waiting room, a stomach growling like a
surly mutt and the caffeine gauge running on
empty. Not a good way to start one's morning,
especially when one isn't much of a morning
I signed the log, scrounged around for an
old issue of a magazine I found vaguely inter-
esting and plopped down into a hard, uncom-
fortable plastic chair made for someone two
sizes smaller than me.
The one remaining halfway accommodat-
ing-looking chair was quickly earmarked by a
lady who raced in and tossed her purse
into it before I could sit down, convincing my
already starving, caffeine deprived, grumpy
self that women only carry purses as place
I resigned myself to a long and boring wait

with the magazine about
famous World War II battles
for company and a stomach
believing that my throat had
been cut when the door
opened and another patient
S' entered the room. Something
about her caught my atten-
tion. I know that lady, I
thought to myself, but for the
CUP OF life of me I can't figure out
JOE how I know her. I noted a
_... halfway puzzled expression
on her face. Not wanting her
Joe Palmer to think I was being fresh, I
went back to reading about the Battle of Iwo
Jima for the umpty-frapth time.
A few minutes later, they called my name
and when I got up and headed toward the
desk to get my final paperwork done, I heard
the familiar looking lady say, "Aha." The lab
lady completed my paperwork and directed
me to a cubicle where a technologist waited
with a needle and a tourniquet As she was
probing for a vein, the familiar looking lady
was directed to sit next in line at my cubicle.
By then, my curiosity was killing me. The lady
looked at me and smiled. "You're Trey's dad,
aren't you?" she asked cheerily. "Yes," I said,
feeling stupid because I still couldn't place her.
"Where do I know you from?" She looked at
me and smiled broadly. "My name's Carol
Kline. I was Trey's Spanish teacher at
Fernandina Beach High School." And then it
all came back. My eldest son's favorite

teacher. Of course, how could I forget?
And then she handed me the parental
report card I've been waiting for all these
years. "He is one of my fondest memories of
teaching," she said a little wistfully. "I really
enjoyed having him in my class."
I laughed and remembered the homework
assignment of preparing a Spanish meal. She
told me about the time she came in and caught
my son and his surfing buddy trying to put a
wetsuit on the classroom mannequin and how
embarrassed one of the girls got when she
walked in and saw the boys trying to stuff a
naked mannequin into a wetsuit. That one
really got me to laughing. The tech drawing
my blood started chuckling, too, much to my
chagrin, as by then she had a needle buried in
my arm.
"And then there was the morning I saw
him pedaling his bicycle down Atlantic Avenue
with his surfboard under his arm when he was
supposed to be in school," Ms. Kline snick-
ered. Uh-oh, I thought. I wonder if it was the
morning I gave him permission to skip and go
surfing because the waves were so good?
Later in the day, I sent Ms. Kline an e-mail
and thanked her and told her how much I
enjoyed our chat.
"You and your wife did a fine job with that
young man for him to be forever in my fondest
memories," she wrote back. "The fruit doesn't
fall far from the tree."
Not a bad report card, that. Muchas gra-
cias, Senora Cline.


Mark Hulsey


Early voting has begun as the primary
election, approaches on Aug. 24. Among the
races that all registered voters may cast bal-
lots for is Circuit Court Judge, Fourth
Judicial Circuit, Group 25.
Both candidates in this race are qualified
and have the credentials to serve as judges
in the Circuit Court.
Sam Garrison, who resides in Clay
County, is a criminal prosecutor in the
Fourth Judicial Circuit and has a decade of
criminal trial experience. He has represent-
ed Florida in over 1,000 criminal cases and
60 jury trials. Garrison has served as the
senior prosecutor of the Homicide and
Major Crimes Unit of the State Attorney
Office. He is also an instructor at the
National College of District Attorneys.
His opponent, Mark Hulsey of
Jacksonville, has three decades of trial expe-
rience in four of the five circuit court divi-
sions. His law practice of 18 years special-
izes in family law. Hulsey is an expert child
custody evaluator and certified family medi-
ator who has taught at Jacksonville
University, FloridaS:ale College
Jacksonville and the University of North
We are fortunate in this race to have two
qualified candidates, but feel Hulsey has the
edge and should be given the opportunity to
serve as a Circuit Court Judge.


Not Amelia National
A Viewpoint on page 6A Aug. 6 titled
"Face reality of economic paradigm shift"
made inaccurate statements about the
Amelia National development on Amelia
Concourse. All references to.Amelia
National were erroneous. That development
has not gone through foreclosure. No devel-
oper has taken it over with plans to sell
homes for $200,000. Nor does the golf
course there "have a questionable future."
There is no evidence that Amelia National
or its developer is in financial trouble.
"No portion of the land owned by the
partnership has ever been through foreclo-
sure. In fact, there is no debt whatsoever on
the project other than CDD bonds," accord-
ing to Robert M. Dees, an attorney repre-
senting Amelia National and its developers.
The writers of the Viewpoint submitted to
the newspaper, Robert M. Weintraub, Peter
Johnson and Jan Cote-Merow, perhaps con-
fused Amelia National with a different
development nearby. There is no connec-
tion between Amelia National and that
development. The News-Leader regrets the

I'm disappointed in our local
youth. They begged for years to get
a skate park in our area. Now that
it's unsupervised, it is being neg-
I took my 5-year-old son there on
Saturday night, only to find plastic
water bottles, soda cans, chip and
candy wrappers and clothes all over
inside the park and outside around
the fence. I wasn't about to just sit
there and watch him skate around
the garbage, so I walked around
picking up the trash myself. I ended
up with five grocery bags full of
trash. The garbage can just outside
the fence was overflowing onto the
ground. So I carried the bags to the
cans by the old concession stand.
There were a few teenage boys
at the park so I confronted them
about the trash, but they said they
didn't live around here. It's a shame
to let something so nice for, our
youth to enjoy be destroyed by oth-
ers that obviously weren't raised
how to pick up after themselves.
,.,Next thing that,will probably hap-
pen is grafitl arid vandalism.

park, let them know they need to
throw their own trash away and

Yet again another political player
within Nassau County politics has
used the firefighters in an attempt to
discredit the sitting commissioners.
Like other comments made and
printed in the past, a picture was
painted with limited facts and half-
truths to sway public opinion against
the career firefighters and the polit-
ical candidates we have supported
and continue to support. These
elected officials include all of the
current county commissioners,
Clerk of the Court John Crawford,
Nassau County Tax Collector John
Drew and Ocean Highway and Port
Authority Commissioner Melvin
Usery, just to name a few.
One of the names you will not
see is Phil Scanlan ("County money,"
Aug. 6). Mr. Scanlan approached
the fire union in 2006 seeking our
endorsement during his run for
county commissioner, District 2.
Instead, the fire union decided to
endorse Mike Boyle. Since that time
Mr. Scanlan has continued to make
numerous accusations against the
union and the individuals we
endorsed. Those accusations have
been thoroughly investigated, both
locally and by the state, and have
all been dismissed.
The fire union has had conver-
sations with Mr. Scanlan in an
attempt to explain in detail the poli-
cies and laws we must follow with
respect to our political involvement.
However, those conversations appar-
ently were in vain. Our only con-
clusion at this point is that a dis-
gruntled former candidate is upset
with our decision not to endorse
him in 2006, and still refuses to con-
sider the facts of our actions.
We know there is a tremendous
amount of misinformation being
spread by multiple people within
the county regarding the fire union.
Our hours of work, benefits and cer-
tain aspects of our contract can be
confusing, especially when com-
pared to the 40-hour workweek most
employees follow. We have received
phone calls and correspondence
from several people expressing con-
cern about our contract. However,
once these individuals were given all
the facts, and detailed explanations
to their questions, most if not all of
their concerns were alleviated.
The fire union contract is public
record and can be seen via the
Nassau County website. The cur-

were negotiated over several
months back in 2008 and 2009.
Citizens also need to remember that
the contract reflects the only cost of
living adjustments for the fire union
in the last seven years. However,
what the current contract does not
show is the concessions made by
the union that nearly paid for all of
those increases. Furthermore, these
negotiations were done prior to the
extreme economic downturn that
has impacted all government oper-
ations. In a show of good faith to
Nassau County residents, the fire
union is currently negotiating with
the county to make further conces-
sions during these very difficult

While reading the article about
Amanda Young seeking a seat on
the Nassau County School Board
(Aug. 4) my attention was drawn
immediately to her statement that,
if elected, she "will ask for a local
policy to be adopted that will
address the problem of illegal immi-
gration affecting our schools." On
her website, I found the statement,
"As our children are affected by
budget constraints, we can no
longer afford to educate those who
are here illegally."
These statements are deeply
troubling to me. I find in them no
trace of compassion for innocent
children who may well have no
knowledge of immigration laws.
Rather, her statements express a
punitive, judgmental attitude toward
undocumented workers and their
children. These families would not
be in this country if employers were
not willing to hire the adult family
members for menial labor jobs at
minimum wages.
Just as importantly, Ms. Young
does not seem to know about
Florida law and U.S. Supreme Court
precedents that promote public edu-
cational opportunities for all chil-
Specifically addressing undocu-
mented children in Plyler v. Doe

authorizes local school districts to
deny enrollment to such children,

The following reasons for this deci-

Public education has a pivotal
role in maintaining the fabric of our

The deprivation of education

The state of Florida just last year
reinforced the concept of equal
access to public education by enact-

Golf course
Golf is a great game, and well
worth saving for many reasons. It
has become harder and harder to
maintain the level of play needed
to fund the operation at a reasonable
cost to the players and the city golf
requires such a large amount of
land to maintain as a golf course, it
becomes quite expensive.
With this in mind, I submit the
following plan, which will enable
the player to hit the same number
of shots in half the territory and
three quarters of time.
I will call it "Compact Golf."
You will use all of your equip-
ment the same as always except
you will do it with half the travel or
For example: The north course,
first six holes, would be used as an
18-hole course with each player hit-
ting three balls each off the first
tees (seniors and ladies would have
their tees as usual).

course, or if needed they could be
used as 18 hole courses with each

For the past few months I have
been reading about the pros and
cons of Amendment 4. The latest
ruling on Crane Island has con-
vinced me that the development
industry will use any tactic to over-
build our island. I now will, and
hope that other Amelia Island resi-
dents will, vote in favor of
Amendment 4.

"Hannah excelled'
For those of us who attended
Hannah Smith's voice recital at
Amelia Plantation Chapel on Aug. 8;
there was a program carefully cho-
sen and artistically presented.
Hannah spoke about each group
before she sang. There were 19th
century exotic French songs, three
Brahms songs, Recitative and Aria
KV 416, written by W.A. Mozart for
his personal friend. These pieces
required both strength and virtu-
osity. Hannah excelled. Arise My
Love and Come Away, arranged by
Mark Hayes, she sang with bright
Part of Hannah's program plan-
ning is to include new music. In this
category were selections from e.c.
cummings set to music by Gwyneth
Walker. The final three songs were
written for Broadway, Simple Little
Things from 110 Degrees in the
Shade. There were no dry eyes dur-
ing this one. Taylor the Latte Boy

pictured a new resident expecting
peace and quiet, however, an opera
singer lived below, an unrestrained
jazz devotee occupied the apart-
ment above. Hannah conveyed vivid
scenes and sounds.
Hannah's vocal tones are pure.
She and her accompanist, Ai
Ishihara, accurately interpreted the
styles and demands of the music,
making this a superb recital.
Hannah is currently putting togeth-
er a program titled Women of the
Stage. Don't miss hearing her when
she comes again to Amelia Island.

The American Iegion Boys State Program is a unique summertime educational program designed to mirror the
structure and operation of the Florida state government. The 2010 Florida Boys State program was held on the
Florida State University campus in Tallahassee. American Legion Post 54 of Fernandina Beach selected four aca-
demically outstanding students to attend July 11-17. The competition among many applicants for these four posi-
tions was spirited. Neil Murray and Stephen Soolloo of Fernandina Beach High School and Brandon Burnette and
Matthew Gingery of Yulee ligh School were selected. All four entered election races at city, county or state levels.
Ultimately, Soolloo was elected to a state senator chair and Burnette to a state house seat. Gingery and Murray
served as elected officials at city and county levels. All energetically supported their party in development of pro-
posed government bills. Several state officials and 1I.S. congressmen made appearances as guest speakers.
Pictured, from left, are I.gionaire Scruggs, Gingery, Iurnette, Murray, Sooloo and Chairman Sydnor.

B ass pro Preston Clark of Palatka
reports excellent summer large-
mouth bass action with bass weigh-
ing over 10 pounds.
"This has been a summer to remember,"
Clark said. "Just the other day, my bass char-
ter client hooked and landed a 13-pound large-
mouth bass while working a diving minnow-
type lure at the deep side of a river bar. Bass
fishing in the St. Johns River right now is as
good as it gets."
St. Johns River bass fishermen are also
catching largemouth bass to five pounds while
drifting live shrimp under boat docks just
north of Palatka and all the way to Green Cove
Bass fishing has also been excellent in
Rodman Reservoir, particularly in the upper
portion of the lake where the old river channel
harbors thick vegetation mats. Flip a dark col-
ored plastic crawfish into the matted weeds
using a one-ounce bullet weight.
Lofton Creek is also producing excellent
largemouth bass fishing during the high
falling tide while working five-inch trick
worms at the mouths of small feeder creeks
and deep turns in the river. Begin fishing just
south of the airport.
On the saltwater scene kingfish are high-
lighting the offshore fishing action, particular-
ly at FA and HH fish havens. Afew "sfioker"
size king mackerel are still running along the
beaches and inlet mouths of Amelia Island as
well. King mackerel fishermen will have the
option of netting beach pogies or jigging up
cigar minnows that are plentiful at the St.
'Marys sea buoy.
Flounder fishing continues to be excellent

in the surf that afford for excellent baits. Use a

on the bottom hook and use fresh, peeled
shrimp on the top hooks.
Florida residents are not required to have a
saltwater fishing license when fishing from
shore, piers or bridges, but are required to
have a permit. Non-residents 16 years old and
older.are required to purchase a Florida salt-

'Postmortem' offers thrills, suspense at ACT

News Leader
A year-old murder hangs over
the characters in

thriller playing at Amelia
Community Theatre.
The play, by Ken Ludwig, focuses on
a fictional event in the life of real-life
actor William Gillette, who was world-
famous in the early 20th century for
playing Sherlock Holmes on stage.
Gillette often brought the casts of
his plays to his home a castle in
Connecticut for weekend visits. It is
during such a visit that Ludwig's play
takes place, according to director Linda

weekend in Connecticut," she said. "It
happens to be one year to the day from
when a person was killed in his house."
That person was Maude, a girl
Gillette was in love with. The official
verdict in her death was suicide but
Gillette has his doubts.

Jane Paul Angelhart is back by
popular demand to do an intensive
five-day "Watercolor Portrait from

This class is a great opportunity
to study with one of the premier
watercolor portrait artists in the
country and is for beginner to
advanced students. Angelhart is
known for her fine art portraits in

medium for capturing the likeness to
the figure in rich, clean color.
Angelhart has a unique step-by-
step method of teaching the student
how to create beautiful portraits in
watercolor. The class is limited in
size and each student will receive
individual attention. The advanced
student can learn a new method of
creating rich, vibrant and clear col-
ors as they paint a number of small
portraits from their own photo-
graphs over the five-day period.
This workshop will be held Sept.
13-17 from 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at the
St. Peter's Episcopal Church

Anticipation High as Ohio Valley Gold and Silver Refinery

Opens for Business Next Week in Fernandina Beach!


Been following the gold and
silver market lately? Well if you have a
jewelry box or lock box full of gold or a
coffee can full of old coins you should
be according to Ohio Valley Refinery
spokesperson John Miller. "The gold
and silver markets have not been this
strong for over 30 years" said Miller.
Typically when the U.S. dollar is weak
and the economy is flat gold and silver
markets soar. "That's good news if you
are setting on a few gold necklaces or
an old class ring" says Miller.
Next week, starting Tuesday at
9am and every day next week through
Saturday, the Ohio Valley Refinery
will be setting up a satellite refinery
right here in Fernandina Beach at the
Days Inn & Suites Amelia Island.
During their 5 day stay, anyone can
bring gold, silver or platinum items and
turn them in for immediate payment,
explains John Miller. "Just about
everybody has some amount of gold
or silver just lying around collecting
dust and next week anybody can sell
theirs direct to our refinery. Typically,
selling direct to a refinery is reserved
for larger wholesale customers like
jewelry stores, pawn shops, and
laboratories," says Miller. "We are
changing how business is done," he
explains. "We want to do business with
everybody so we took our business to
the streets. Our teams visits various
cities around the country hosting 5 day
events allowing the general public to
take advantage of our services. The
turnout has been overwhelming," says
Miller. "Usually each day is busier
than the previous day. It seems once
people come to us and sell something,
they are so amazed by what an old ring
or gold coin is worth that they go home
and start digging around for more and
telling relatives, friends and neighbors.
It's like a feeding frenzy by the third
day. People line up with everything

Above Refinery representatives will be on hand next week, starting Tuesday and continuing through
Saturday, to purchase all gold, silver and platinum items, as well as coins. Public welcome!

from gold jewelry to sterling silver
flatware sets to old coins. I think
during this bad economy everybody
can use extra money but most
people say they are taking advantage
of selling direct to our refinery
because of the higher prices we pay."
During this special event anyone
is welcome to bring all types of gold,
silver and platinum to the refinery and
turn it in for instant payment The types
of items they will accept include all
gold jewelry; gold coins; gold ounces;
dental gold; old coins dated 1964
and before including: Silver Dollars,

Silver and Gold Coin Prices

Up During Poor Economy.

Collectors and
Enthusiasts in
Fernandina Beach
with $200,000 to
Purchase Yours!

Got Coin? It might be just the
time to cash in. Next week, starting
Tuesday and continuing through
Saturday, the International Collectors
Association in conjunction with the
Ohio Valley Gold & Silver Refinery
will be purchasing all types of silver
and gold coins direct from the public.
All types are welcome and the event
is free.
Collectors will be on hand to
identify and sort your coins. Then the
quality or grade will be determined.
According to collectors I talked with,
the better the grade the more they are
worth. With the current silver and
gold markets, high prices are being
paid for older coins too. Any coins
minted in 1964 and before in the U.S.
are 90% silver except nickels and
The coins worth is determined
by the rarity and the grade. Old silver
dollars are worth a great premium
right now. Even well worn and heavy.
circulated ones are bringing good
premiums. Franklin and Kennedy
halves, Washington quarters and
Mercury and Roosevelt dimes are all
worth many times their face value.
While older types like Seated Liberty,
Standing Liberties, and Barber coins
are worth even more.
Gold coins are really worth a
lot' right now according to Brian
Eades of the International Collectors
Association. This country didn't start
minting coins until 1792 says Eades.
Before that people would trade
goods using gold dust and nuggets.
Some shop keepers would take more
gold than needed to pay for items
purchased. There was no uniform
system of making change.

The government opened the first
mints and began distributing the
coins in 1792. By the beginning of
the 19th century, coins and paper
currency were wide spread and our
monetary system was here to stay. In
1933 Roosevelt required all banking
institutions to timrn in all gold coins.
Once all banks turned in this
gold, the president raised the gold
standard from $20.00 per ounce to
$33.00 per ounce. This was his way
of stimulating the economy during
the great depression. However, gold
coins were never redistributed after
the recall. Not all gold coins were
turned in. Many folks during that
time. didn't completely trust the
government and chose to keep their
These gold coins are sought after
by collectors today and bring many
times the face value. Any gold coins
with the mint marks of CC, D or O
will bring nice premiums. Collectors
at the event will be glad to show you
where to look. Other types of coins
will also be purchase including:.
foreign coins, Indian head cents, two
cent pieces, half dimes, three cent
pieces and buffalo nickels to name a
Collectors warn people against
trying to clean their coins as
significant damage can be done and
the coins value lessened.

Items we will
accept include:
Scrap Jewelry
Dental Gold
Sterling Silverware
Sterling SilverTea Sets
Silver Dollars
All Coins Dated 1964 & Earlier
Industrial Scrap
All forms of Platinum

will be issued a number. Seating will
be available. When your number is
called you will be escorted to a table
where your items will be examined,
tested and sorted. This only takes a
few minutes using their expertise and
specialized equipment. Items will be
counted and/or weighed. The value of
the items will be determined based on
up to'the minute market prices. Live
feeds will be available at the event
displaying current market prices of
all precious metals. If you choose to
sell your items, they will be bagged
and tagged and you will be escorted
to the cashier to collect your payment.
Waiting time to sell your items may
range from just a few minutes to 1
hour so bring something to read.
If you are the owner of a jewelry
store, pawn shop, dentist office or
a dealer you are encouraged to call
ahead to make an appointment with
the smelt master to discuss their
special dealer programs. They can
be reached during refinery hours at
