Beachgoers attempt to a save a whale on Amelia Island earlier this summer. There is virtually no
chance of such a rescue being successful, and this whale died.

Well mean

News Leader
If you see an injured wild animal, ydur first instinct is
to provide help. That may not be the best course of action,
It's better to call in wildlife professionals whd are
trained in such matters. They may be able to rescue,
rehabilitate or heal a wounded animal. If not, they are able
to humanely euthanize an animal that can't be saved'.
In some cases, it's best to let nature take its course.
After all, this is nature, and this is wildlife.
An example is a pygmy or dwarf sperm whale that
beached earlier this summer on Amelia Island. The
whale's plight drew dozens of onlookers, some of whom
intervened to try to save the whale.
They were well meaning, no doubt, but their actions
could have been harmful for the whale and for the people
around them.
The whale was first spotted in the surf near a beach

ut ...

access on South Fletcher Avenue. A group of beachgoers
and patrons of a nearby restaurant leaped into the water
and tried to steer the whale back into the ocean.
"It's a common misperception let's get it back in the
water," said state marine mammal biologist Ryan Berger.
In fact, it's dangerous for the humans involved. Whales
have strong tails that can whip a human and cause seri-
ous injury. "These animals are pretty powerful, especial-
ly in the tail area," Berger said.
And it's not likely to work.
The whale probably was beaching itself because it is
sick. "In 90 percent of these strandings there's a heart-
related problem," Berger said.
Pygmy and dwarf sperm whales commonly'suffer
from cardiomyopathy, a hardening of the arteries in the
heart. They are bdund for the beach and will resist being
steered back into deep water.
In fact, the whale in Fernandina Beach drifted with its

City O(s funds

for nonprofits,

and for library


* Fernandina Beach Commissioners
agreed Monday to award nine non-
profit organizations down from 14
this year $47,800 in 2010-11. They
also agreed to dip into reserves to allo-
cate $50,000 for operations of the
Fernandina Beach branch of the coun-
ty library system.
'At their sixth budget meeting this
year, city commissioners also again
discussed whether to award pay rais-
es for city employees in the next fiscal
year. A majority still favors doing so.
According to City Finance Director
Patti Clifford, the additional $50,000 for
the library will come out of city
reserves. Clifford said she did not
know how the money would be spent
or how much the county contributes to
the running of the city branch library.
The $50,000 for operating the
library is in addition to $112,000
already budgeted for a new roof and
air conditioning. The city owns the
library building, while the employees
work for the county, which manages
operations including purchase of
books and other materials.
Commissioners decided to award
about half of the $80,000 the cit-con-
tributed to non-profits this year. Eight,
of the nine to receive funds are human
services charities; the Amelia Island
Museum of History, which will receive
$5,000, was the exception.
Mike Spino, chair of the city Arts
Council, did not ask commissioners
for funds, but for the donation of city
facilities such as the Peck Community
Center for events and activities three
times a year. Commissioners appeared

amenable to the idea, but no decisions
were made as to whether the city
would go forward with it.
Non-profit groups that will get
funds in the next fiscal year are the
Councilon Aging, $20,000; Episcopal
Children's Services, $4,300; Boys &
Girls Club of Nassau County, $2,500;
the National Alliance for the Mentally
Ill of Nassau, $10,000; Micah's Place,
$1,000; Barnabas Center, $3,000;
Amelia Island Museum of History,
$5,000;4Family Support Services,
$1,500; and Coalition for the Homeless
of Nassau County, $500.
A budgeted 2 percent cost-of-living
raise for city employees, brought up by
Commissioner Eric Childers, was also
part of the discussion.
"I would very much like to get away
from the (cost-of-living raise),"
Childers said. He noted the Consumer
Price Index has not increased lately, so
such a raise is "inappropriate."
"I don't think you deserve a raise
for showing up," Childers said. "I'd
like to see our raises tied to merit."
But Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch,
a former city worker, defended the
raises, saying that employees who
reached the top grade of hc; ir p' i :
siort would be out of luck if not for
-such pay hikes.
"We should be moving toward a
pay-for-performance philosophy,"
Commissioner Arlene Filkoff said.
'There are ways to take what might be
called a COIA today and put them in
a performance pool."

outrageous," said Vice Mayor Tim

Program helps foster kids launch careers

For the News-Leader

Family Support Services of North
Florida (FSS), the lead agency for foster
care, adoption and prevention in Duval
and Nassau counties, is partnering with
the Northeast Florida State Hospital
(NEFSH) in a pilot program to help
selected FSS clients earn certification as
a nursing assistant.
On Monday morning, 10 clients from
FSS programs began their studies in the
Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) pro-
gram at the state hospital in Macclenny.
The students include five young adults
from the FSS Independent Living pro-
gram who have transitioned out of foster
care at age 18, and five adults from the
FSS voluntary prevention program,
Strengthening Ties and Enabling Parents
(STEPS) for families facing challenges.
S'The CNA program entails a rigorous
curriculum that will require a strong
commitment and serious studies, and will
enable the students to gain entry into the
health care profession," said Jim Adams,
FSS chief executive officer. "Many of our

Students plan on
using this program as
a stepping stone for
S becoming registered
.'g nurses or to pursue
S careers in other areas
of health care."
Upon successful
completion of the program in December,
Including passing the state certification
exam, the students will be certified by
the state of Florida as professional nurs-
ing assistants. NEFSH will assist gradu-
ates with job placement.
Adams said, "We are removing all bar-
riers that would typically keep our clients
from participating in an education pro-
gram such as this. We are providing
transportation and covering expenses for
books, supplies and uniforms. In addi-
tion, we are providing constant support
and encouragement FSS wants them to
succeed!" *
The students will be transported by
van between Jacksonville and Macclenny
each of the three days they will attend
classes. Classes run from 9:30 a.m. to

4:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday.
The program curriculum includes
classroom lectures and hands-on train-
ing, including coursework in ethics, pri-
vacy laws and human immunodeficiency
virus (HIV). Skills to be taught in the pro-
gram include cardiopulmonary resuscita-
tion, blood pressure readings, transfer-
ring patients to and from wheelchairs and
methods for turning patients in bed.
CNAs typically work in hospitals,
nursing homes, assisted living facilities
and with home heath care services.
FSS offers many programs and servic-
es for local'children and families. STEPS
serves struggling families by providing
training, education, referral services and
reunification, including in-home instruc-
tion in parenting skills, money manage-
ment and behavior management strate-
Independent Living serves former fos-
ter care children ages 18 to 23, providing
life skills services, educational opportuni-
ties, social guidance, emotional support,
career planning, counseling and access to
quality housing and healthcare.

They gotBurger King their way

News Leader

Marilyn and Ricky Arm-
strong, owners of the new
Burger King on South Eighth
Street in Fernandina Beach,
say they owe it all to God.
"It's a God thing," said
Marilyn Armstrong when
describing how their Burger
King ownership came about.
"At first they told him
because he'd never owned a
restaurant, he couldn't get a
franchise. Six weeks later he
was signing the papers.
Miracle number one."
Miracle number two
involved the financial aspect
and securing the funds to
demolish the old building
and build a new one.
The Armstrongs give
kudos on that aspect first to
the Almighty and then to
Vicki Beaudry and First
Coast Community Bank.
Miracle number three
came about when the
Armstrongs decided to hold

The Armstrongs believe
their building is the only one
like it in the U.S.
"Everybody's been just
great," said Marilyn. "We
couldn't be happier. They've
gone out of their way, above
and beyond and it shows."
The final miracle came
about when their grand-
daughter Chelsea married a
"Burger King Guy," Adam

manage the restaurant.
Last but not least, the

of thanks to Burger King

MIAMI Parents and edu-
cators kicked off the Vote No on
8 campaign to keep the smaller
class sizes voters approved in a
2002 constitutional amendment.
Mark Pudlow, spokesman
for the Florida Education
Association, the state's largest
teacher's union, says Amend-
ment 8, if passed, would strike
down the smaller class size
"It can be confusing. It's writ-
ten in a way to suggest this will
;help improve class size ,ji.
Florida, wlhen-in cai. 111- 1 ei1a
story'is this is going itI mnitji
larger class sizes in Florida."
Pudlow claims smaller class

sizes have meant bigger learn-
ing gains. "A teacher has a bet-
ter chance of having control of
the class and a better chance
of connecting one-on-one with
students with smaller class size.
You're going to be able to learn
more if you have more interac-
tion with the teacher."
SSmaller class sizes are cru-
cial to the state having a well-
educated workforce in the
future, he says.
"Anybody who says it costs
too much should know you get
what you pay for. If you're going
: to;tnry:to get by on providing

hoping for the best; that's not
exhibiting leadership and it's
not good strategy for the state."

A ce the Wontder Dog

We park at Putt-Putt of
Main Beach on North
Fletcher, and he makes his
first stop at the large palm
tree at the corner of the golf
course. We make our way to
the boardwalk; the leash is
taut as he pulls me from
gazebo to gazebo. I notice
the benches that line our
path and try to pay my
respects to each person
immortalized there. Ace, on
the other hand, is fully occu-
pied with reading the many
messages left by those
who've been there before
him. He leaves his own for
the next influx of sniffers.
I smile and say hello to
the people we meet; Ace
waits to see if he's welcome
before he gives them a lick in
greeting. I have had to warn
more than one person that he
has an affinity for bare toes.
Ace and I are rarely alone
on these jaunts. There is a
small but hard core of regu-
lars, and we nod and smile as
we pass. Visitors must be
able to tell that we-are
natives, because they stop us
to ask questions about life in

and loads the heavy bags into

Check the condition of a carry-
over model if it has been on the
lot for a long time. Most dealers
have their inventories washed
once or twice a week, but after
enough months in the Florida
sun they may need to be
detailed again. Iook for any cos-
metic issues inside and out.
Those intending to lease
should get the new model in
almost every case. The residual
values are much higher for the
new models versus a soon to
be year old car. Leasing a new
model in the fall is often the
best deal of the model year. And
it is nice to say, "Want to see my
2011 XYZ car?" As with most

habit there are closeout bar
gain hunters and hot-off-thy-

other individual."
Selby said Tuesday that he is currently con-
si(dering Hilliard resident Dale Miley. "He retired
from Duval a few years ago, and he's been work-
ing part-time for Hilliard," he said.
Selby stressed the job would be temporary
as Miley's code enforcement certification level
may not be high enough to take on the position'

"I believe he has a Level 1 and Level 2 cer-
tification," he said. "Our position ultimately
requires a Level 3, but this would just be a tem-
porary (job).
"At this point in time we're just having pre-
liminary discussions with him," Selby added. "If
everything checks out on our end, he's got to
check it out with Hilliard because he doesn't
want to leave them hanging. We'd have to work
out a time-share."
Rothwell resigned after allegations of mis-
behavior at a May conference in Fort Lauderdale
that also resulted in the firings of three other
department heads, Building Maintenance super-
visor Daniel Salmon, Road and Bridge supervi-
sor Butch Hartman and Landfill/Solid Waste
director Lee Pickett. Those three have appealed
their terminations,,however, and Selby said he
wouldn't fill those positions during their appeals.
"My intention is to do the three appeals this
week," he said. "Based on the outcome of the
appeals I will move forward one way or the
. other."

County workers to get

training in travel forms

News Leader

Nassau County employees
receive no formal training in
filling out travel reimbursement
forms,-according to officials
from the county human
resources department and the
county clerk's office.
However, that may change
in the wake of a scandal involv-
ing four former county admin-
istrators, according to Clerk of
Court John Crawford.
The four administrators -
Building Maintenance supervi-
sor Daniel Salmon, Landfill/
Solid Waste director Lee
Pickett, Road and Bridge super-
visor Butch Hartman and Code
Enforcement director Brenda
Rothwell-came under fire late
last after attending a Fort
Lauderdale hurricane confer-
ence in May.


resigned Aug.
5. Salmon, Hart-
man and Pick-
ett were fired
the following
day, although
they are appeal-
ing their job ter-
At issue in

the firings were the department
heads' travel reimbursement
requests. Evidence indicated
they only attended a day and a
half of classes during the four-
day conference, which led
County Manager Ted Selby to
conclude that they had mis-
represented the amount of
reimbursement they were due.
John Cascone, attorney for
the fired employees, seized on
the reimbursement requests as
inadequate reason for termina-
tion, writing to Selby on Aug. 11

that none of the three adminis-
trators "ever recall receiving
any.training" on how to fill out
the documents.
The fired employees weren't
the only ones with questionable
reimbursement vouchers,
according to Crawford. In an
Aug. 17 letter to Selby, he wrote
that of the 11 employees who
attended the hurricane confer-
ence, two "did not include lodg-
ing amounts."
"When we release the writ-
ten internal review, I'm sure
we'll make recommendations
in that review to the board and
Their staff to institute training
for travel in general and par-
ticularly those travel vouchers,"
he said. "I think when we trav-
el we need to be reminded often
that it's not our money, it's tax-
payer money and we need to
be-accountable for every dime
we spend."

Oceans of Fun Reading Camp has com-

and fourth graders additional help with their
reading skills. This year, two camps were con-

activities included reading strategies, phonics,
comprehension, encoding/decoding, writing
and vocabulary.
The camp is a culmination of hard work
and the overwhelming generosity, love and

We were all wireless back then

There was a moment this past week
when I suddenly felt every ounce of
my age, which is 50 for just a couple
more weeks. It wasn't because I was
tired or anything creaked or ached.
I was in a marketing meeting with a group
of twenty-somethings when it happened.
Just as we were about to get started one of
them announced she'd need our phone num-
bers again., Her Blackberry had been stolen
and she was truly wireless and had been for an
entire day.
The room gasped and they immediately
started to pepper her with questions about
how she was doing, was she able to function.
You'd have thought she had injured an impor-
tant body part. I was expecting someone to
coordinate dinners for her.
She 'looked appropriately stoic, like people
often do after they relate the story of a drama
in their life, such as a bad car accident.
Apparently now we can add the loss of a per-
sonal appliance to that list.
I wanted to pipe up with the thought that
when I was their age all of the phones were
permanently attached to places in the house
by the phone company. We went around wire-
less all of the time.
Arrangements had to be made about where
to meet up and when and people made an
effort to be on time because there was no way
of letting someone know you'd be late.
We kept all of those appointments written
down in a small book that often had the phone
numbers in there too. The really important

numbers and meetings were kept in our head.
There was a lot more brain
space available back then
before PIN numbers and
r fcJ multiple passwords and sign-
on names.
..'- If you weren't home when
..someone called you didn't
S even know they had tried to
call. No answering machines,
no voice mail and a lot fewer
MORE expectations. There wasn't
ADVENTURES this idea that-business or
social interactions could be
carried on at all times from
Martha all places. It was possible to
Randolph be out of touch on a daily
basis and sit there in the
Carr moment hanging out with
only the people right in front of you.
Now there's a phone app called FourSquare
that will post automatically on your Facebook
page where you are standing with the picture
of a little street map. Not only can I follow ybur
tweets about the cold you're suffering from or
the book you published yourself but I can map
your day in a city I've never visited. That's
SThe CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt, even
predicts that the,trend is going to continue to
the point that your phone will know where you
are at any given time, what you're reading;
what you like to do, wear, eat and will offer tid-
bits of information that tie all of those things
together. In other words, your appliances will

start to answer questions for you that you did-
n't know you have yet GPS marketing has
Schmidt believes that whoever controls the
flow of information will be the next big thing
on the block. I'd bring up the tired cliche of
Big Brother but we passed that awhile ago.
This is more like Minority Report where there
was a constant flow of ads in everyone's face
telling them what they wanted. Sure, there's
been a marketing ploy to do that since man
first started selling things but we were always
able to pick and choose when we'd listen to
the sales pitch.
Now it's impossible to go anywhere without
watching several ads before something starts.
'Schmidt is suggesting we should even be get-
ting an alert while just walking down the
street that there's something we'd like to buy
just around the corner.
Suddenly I have an inkling of an idea about
what the next Great Recession may involve
and when it first got started. Mark your calen-
dars with today's date.
Back at that marketing meeting I chose to
keep quiet and just sat back to observe the
rounds of concern. I figured it would sound
too much like I didn't feel her pain, which I
didn't and would make the gulf between our
generations too apparent. I also suddenly felt a
little kinship with the old man I met when I
was just a little girl who tried to explain to me
how you crank a car. At the time I thought it
was really quaint


Congratulations city commis-
sioners, city manager and city staff!
In the third. year of a recession,
unemployment at 10-plus percent,
plummeting property values and
businesses closing, you have man-
aged in your "holding the line" and
cutting all that is possible to be
responsible for a .451 increase in
my tax millage this year out of the
total increase of .4629! That is about
97 1/2 percent of the total increase.
Can hardly wait to see how much
you increase taxes next year!

Selbysteped up
I feel it's important to respond to
("Who's managing," Aug. 25) for
two reasons: 1) Ted Selby had just
started the job of county manager
when this story broke; and 2) it was
not Mr. Selby that approved the trav-
el requests for these employees.
According to the public documents
that I viewed, every travel request
was signed by former. County
Coordinator Ed Sealover. But eyev
Ed Sealover isn't to blame due to
the fact that there were courses that
would have been beneficial to their
area of work.
Unfortunately the employees
chose to spend their time partying
instead of receiving training. So if
anyone is to blame, it's the four
employees for using bad judgment
and misuse of county funds. It real-
ly upsets me when people don't get
their facts straight before publicly
making accusations against some-
one. I think Mr. Selby really stepped
up to the plate by firing the remain-
ing three (after Brenda Rothwell
It must not have been easy start-
ing a new job and being faced with
such a challenge. He should be com-
mended for listening to the taxpay-
ers and doing what was was right. I
don't envy him one bit for there will
never be a person in that position
that will please everyone.

Human kindness
Too often we read about greed,
violence and social decay. Here is a
tale of sharing in our community
that should remind us of the impor-
tance of human kindness and inspire
each of us to reach out, to give of
ourselves and to make this a better
place every day.
A few weeks ago I was
approached by a man who said he
represented a group that does proj-
ects to help others in the community
and that they would like to do some-
thing to help our business. Theirs
was an offer of assistance with no
strings attached only the oppor-
tunity for them to do something of
benefit for someone else, one neigh-
bor helping another. We were hesi-
tant but intrigued. When we ques-
tioned if there were not others in
the'community with greater need,
we were assured that such assis-
tance would not be diminished by
this offer to us. We were also
reminded that while giving freely is
a joy, there is a blessing in receiving
such a gift as well.
So we accepted and last Sunday
morning a group of 24 eager men
and women of all ages descended on
our restaurant with cleaning sup-
plies, a paint sprayer and a sense of
determination. There was a buzz of
activity and camaraderie, and in a
few short hours our dining room
floors had been vacuumed, our win-
dows cleaned inside and out and
our parking lot stripes repainted!
We would like to publicly
acknowledge this kindest of neigh-
borly acts by the Faith In Action
group from The Journey Church.
While my family is not affiliated with
The Journey Church, we are well

aware of the good they do in our
community and the positive effect
that goodness brings. Sonny's is
proud to be a member of this com-
munity and. pleased to call The
Journey Church neighbor and

I would like to publicly thank the
,Fernandina Beach first responders,
the Baptist Medical Center Nassau
personnel, all their teachers, men-
tors and especially their parents, all
of whom, I believe, contributed to
the. swift successful rescue and
excellent treatment of my son last
Friday afternoon. Our community.
should be proud and reassured that
in a time of crisis that such a pro-
fessional rescue and treatment team
is here and recognize those who
brought this highly trained multi-
tier group into being.

RAIN train
After watching Animal Planet's
"Last Chance Highway," the show
features rescues that use a pet trans-
port which charges $100 or more to
transport each pet adopted from res-
cues down south to new homes up
north, I thought the Nassau com-
munity should be aware that RAIN
Humane SPCA in Callahan, a non-
profit, provides this service for free
to Animal Control in Nassau County.
Since RAIN began the transport a lit-
tle over a year ago, they have trans-
ported over 700 dogs off of death
row to other shelters in the south
which have more space and poten-
tial adopters. The community should
really support this nonprofit and all
of the wonderful work they do for
pets in our community.

This is where your money goes.
The federal government has been
known to fund some strange proj-
ects. We review the offers periodi-
cally. The following text is taken
from one recent funding. We don't
understand it, but it sounds scary.
"The Social-Computational
Systems (SoCS) program seeks to
reveal new understanding about the
properties that systems of people
and computers together possess,
and to develop theoretical and prac-

tical understandings of the pur-
poseful design of systems to facili-
tate socially intelligent computing.
By better characterizing, under-
standirg, and eventually designing
for desired behaviors arising from
computationally mediated groups
of people at all scales, new forms of
knowledge creation, new models of
computation, new forms of culture,
and new types of interaction will

No on Amendment 4
Our system of government has
always been one of representation.
The elected or appointed represen-
tatives who serve the public must
bring both a desire to serve and
expertise in certain areas to make
educated and well-informed deci-
sions on our behalf. Those repre-
sentatives who are involved in main-
taining a plan for the future of our
community spend many long hours
vetting issues such as zoning, traffic
flow, public safety, utilities, schools,
and housing. Our system works and
has for over 200 years. The answer
is not to throw out our methods of
governing and planning that have
served us well simply because we
may occasionally disagree with
some of the outcomes. If we are dis-
satisfied with our representatives
we already have the ultimate power
of our vote to replace them.
If Amendment 4 were in effect,
the voting public, which is a small'
percentage of the populace, would
make decisions on comprehensive
plan changes based on a 75- word
description on a ballot. Nassau
County averages a 13 percent voter
turnout. The true impact and full
effect of a plan change cannot be
expressed in 75 words. A person liv-
ing in Old Town Fernandina would
be voting on a proposed change to
property in Hilliard and vice versa
with probably no idea of any of the
circumstances or underlying effects.
This is a dangerous way to plan our
I have been in and around the
field my whole career and am all
too familiar with the fact that any
development whether commercial,
industrial or residential involves
many hours of digging into the
minutia of building and zoning codes
and laws to guarantee the best pos-
sible development outcome.
Amendment 4 is not an answer to
responsible development. The real
answer is to become involved and
informed on what is happening in
your community. Attend planning


and zoning meetings, voice your
concerns and get to know your com-
If passed, Amendment 4 would
dismantle the local planning process
and discourage our communities
from building new schools, parks,
hospitals and highways. It would
make it not only very difficult for
local businesses to grow but it would
also deter new businesses from
bringing new jobs to our communi-
ty. Any economy needs predictabil-
ity. Without it, businesses cannot
plan; they cannot hire; they cannot
survive. Armiendment 4 would
require that small business owners
not only navigate our state's tricky
land tse process but also wage cost-
ly and unpredictable political cam-
paigns simply to.survive:
The Florida Supreme Court
plainly indicates that Amendment 4
would trigger votes not simply on
land use items but, ih fact, on every
change to a local government's com-
prehensive plan. Voters could be
faced with literally hundreds of votes
in the course of a year. Amendment
4 is unworkable, unrealistic and
extreme. Vote No on Nov. 2.

Whatis happening?
When are the Democrats going
to understand that Barack Obama is
not a Democrat, and is on his own
agenda while using the Democratic
Party in name only. The United
States is a republic, and we are sup-
posed to have a system of checks
and balances. Just how many times
since 2008 has this system of
checks and balances been tipped
due to Chicago gangster politics?
A health bill that 76 percent of
the people did not want. A bailout of
auto companies, a bailout of insur-
ance, a bailout of financial institu-
tions, a,shutdown of our own oil
drilling capabilities. When is it going
to stop? We now have more czars
than Russia. Funny, but not really
considering Mother Russia fell from
socialism and Obama and Biden
want to stop capitalism and head
us down the road of socialism.
I can't wait for the elections to
show these powei-grabbing elite
that we the people are going to take
our country back, and, yes, repeal
all this crap that has us heading in
the wrong direction. I have seen
where Obama has been; I hope we
don't go there. I see Obama and
those he has surrounded himself
with and know we are in very seri-
ous trouble.

plagued by illiteracy,

a pastor is making a differ-

by building a Christian
school. Pastor Luis' desire
this summer was to build
the third classroom for the
school. Kevin Johnson
became aware of the need
and approached the team
with the idea of supporting
Pastor Luis' efforts.
The youth team took on
the challenge of raising the
money and through several
fundraising events and pri-

arrived, they helped start
the construction by digging
foundations, pouring con-

FRIDAY. August 27. 2010/News-Lcader


Association aims to get on mission with God' at home, abroad

News Leader

The Northeast Florida Baptist
Association has been around for a long
time. Originally organized in 1879
under the name the St. Marys River
Association, it has gone through name
changes and configurations, going
from its original title to the Jacksonville
Association, and finally adopting its
current name in 1938.
On Oct. 25, 1938, nine churches
met at Callahan Baptist Church and
constituted the Northeast Florida

Association with the
Rev. J.D. Poindexter
as moderator.
In 1979, there
were 24 churches
and two missions
reported at the
A n n u a
Drake Meeting in October.
-- As of January
2010, the association
has 35 churches and six new church
starts in its membership.
The purpose of the association is

"to become spiritually awakened
churches encouraging, supporting and
assisting one another for the honor
and glory of God. We strive to be a way
for local Southern Baptist Churches to
get on mission with God, whether at
home or abroad."
At the helm of the association is
Dr. David Drake. A native of Mt.
Sterling, Ky., Drake was saved at the
age of 10 and moved to Florida two
years later. It was here he met Jody,
"the pretty red-haired girl" who would
later become his wife.
Married on June 21, 1975, the

Drakes have a daughter, Jolene, and
son-in-law, Matthew Miller, of Alachua
and a son, Steven, and daughter-in-
law, Robyn Drake, of Yulee..
Grandchildren include Hannah Renee
Drake of Yulee and Matthew Drake
Miller and Jackson Eli Miller of
Alachua. Granddaughter Hannah has
laid claim to Sugar the cat.
Earning his doctor of ministry
degree from Luther Rice Seminary,
Drake pastored churches in Florida
for nearly 27 years before becoming
Director of Missions of The Northeast
Florida Baptist Association in July

Drake has taught on the evening
school faculty of The Moody Bible
Institute and traveled oversees to min-
ister the Gospel in Jamaica, Scotland,
Israel, Jordan, the Philippines, Guyana,
Brazil and Honduras and serves as
one of 13 chaplains for the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office. He also fills in
at various churches as pastor when

Almost Ancient Pots will
have a variety of pots perfect

hypertufa, an all-natural
blend of Portland cement,
perlite, vermiculite and peat
moss. This mix creates a per-
manent, concrete planter that
is much lighter in weight
than classic concrete and the
natural mixture encourages
healthy plants by providing
superior air circulation and

Pruning not critical

tofig tree success

. My fig tree is just about
.to finish bearing fruit. It
has grown so large that I real-
ize I need to prune it. When
would be the best time? I do
not want to lose any possible
fruit for next year. MS
A The best time to prune
:. fig trees is immediately
after the tree has finished
fruiting and you have picked
the last ripened fruit. It is
important to note that figs do
not require pruning to
increase the amount of fruit.
If you feel
the tree has
become too
I overgrown
then you can
prune it, but
do not
remove too
much of the
tree branch.
GARDEN Pruning now
TAL will allow for
new bud
""" growth and
Becky ordi the opportu-
nity for con-
tinued fruit production for
next year. Other fruit trees
such as citrus, apple or pear
should be pruned late winter
or early spring. You may
remove all dead or decaying
limbs any time of year. When
you make your pruning cut,
be sure to prune back to just'
above where a bud will form.
Do not leave a stub as this will
increase the opportunity for
splitting, cracking and intro-
duction of disease into the
stem. Always sterilize your
pruners to avoid transmitting
diseases from one branch to
Q .My rabbit-eye blueber-
.ries have almost totally
completed fruiting. When
should I prune them? NC
A I am amazed, in this
*heat, to hear you local
gardeners are still out there
working in the yard. Congrat-
ulations to you. Of course, I
am still pulling weeds each
time I walk by my perennials
and blueberry garden too.
Consider pruning directly
after all the berries have been
harvested. However, there is
some research that indicates
an increase in fruit production
if the plant is pruned every
other summer. Pruning dur-
ing dormant season will
reduce the amount of fruit,
therefore it is not normally
recommended. I hand prune
my blueberries, unlike many
orchard growers who use
large machines to cut off the
tops of the shrubs to keep
them from growing too tall.
The publication at
has some really good illustra-
tions on how those pruning
cuts should be made.
Remember, blueberries prefer
an acid soil with the pH
between 4.5 and 5.5. If your
soil is too alkaline, consider
growing blueberries in a com-
bination of pine bark and peat.
S.My compost pile is
.growing mold and it
looks terrible. The area seems

Iam amazed, in this

yard. Congratulations
toyou. Ofcourse, I

to pool water. What can I do?
A It would appear the area
.is too wet and the site is
not allowing enough air to cir-
culate around the pile. You
could re-grade the area to
ensure proper drainage. It is
possible to raise the whole
bed, which would allow the
water an opportunity to drain
off better.
Another choice would be
to redirect the water away
from the pile using a series of
trenches. Consider your
options and select the best
one for your situation. Compo-
sting can be so rewarding.
Nothing beats the wonderful,
rich soil produced from yard
and kitchen wastes. Remem-
ber to never add sweets or
milk or meat products to the
pile. The compost pile should
be moist but not wet.
At least once a week mix
up your compost pile using a
pitch fork or rake. This allows
for air to circulate around the
dirt and mixes the medium
together. You will know when
it is time to use the soil when
you can no longer see the
watermelon rind or the coffee
filter or the tree leaves. Be
sure to incorporate your soil
mixture with the native soil.
However, do not be tempted
to just place a handful in the
planting hole when planting
woody ornamentals as this
can result in circling roots and
too heavy soil.
The composted soil is a
wonderful addition to any veg-
etable or perennial garden.
Spread the composted soil
around and alter the whole
garden area so the roots will
grow in all directions seeking
out the nutrients.

Jags at Tampa

Jaguars look for their first win of the 2010 pre-
season as they face Tampa Bay on Aug. 28 at
Raymond James Stadium. Kickoff is set for
7:30 p.m.
LAST GAME: Lightning delayed the start of
last week's home game against Miami for
nearly two hours and the Dolphins eventually
prevailed 27-26 over the Jaguars. The Jaguars
led 9-3 after the first quarter thanks to a
blocked punt out of the end zone for a safety
by Rashad Jennings, followed by a 10-play,
78-yard scoring drive by QB David Garrard.
Garrard finished six of eight passing for 79
yards and one touchdown in just over a quar-
ter of action. The Jaguars lost their preseason
opener 28-27 at Philadelphia.
INJURY UPDATE: The Jaguars have battled
injuries throughout the preseason and 2010
first-round pick Tyson Alualu and DE Aaron
Kampman made their debut against Miami.
RADIO/TV: The game will be broadcast
regionally on CBS and locally on WTEV
CBS47. Games are broadcast on Jaguars

A mixed bag of striking fish this weekend offshore


A lone fisherman tests his surf fishing skills at the foot of Sadler Road.

.* -'r "" arm summer
S ocean water tem-
-,J ',- peratures contin-
1 ue to hold a wide
variety of pelagic game fish at
offshore fish havens, where
baitfish schools are the main
attraction. Surface water tem-
peratures are ranging from
the low to mid 80s while cold-
water thermoclines have been
rare during our summer fish-
ing season.
"Our fishing party recently
enjoyed fast live bait trolling
action at the St. Marys sea
buoy for barracuda and king
mackerel," said Capt. Benny
Hendrix, skipper of the Heavy
Hitter charter fishing boat.
"We first jigged up a livewell
full of cigar minnows and
then began trolling the outer
edges of the baitfish schools.
"We found the best action
coming early in the morning,
just after sunrise. When the
action slowed, we ran out to
WR-2 reef and live baited
kingfish and barracuda. Later
in the day we returned to the
St. Marys sea buoy and found
excellent live bait trolling
once again for kingfish and

nows, mullet, threadfin shad
and. Spanish sardines. A six-
foot Atlantic sailfish strike can
happen anytime during your
day of live bait trolling along
with dolphin, cobia, barracu-
da, Spanish mackerel, amber-
jack and kingfish.
Begin your trolling day
while concentrating on the.
upper water column depths
from the surface to 30 feet
deep. As high noon approach-
es, drop those downrigger
live baits deep to water
depths from 40-60 feet.
Look for continued live
bait trolling action to come
from FA, HH, AH and the
Nassau live bottom fish

weekend will
find a high

a.m. Satur-
day and a
low tide at
6:18 p.m. at
the mouth of

ing backcountry fishing
action during the hard run-
ning incoming morning tides.
Cast a topwater plug where
mullet are schooling over
shallow bars, flats and oyster-
bars. Deep river channels are
now holding schools of mullet
where jacks are frequently
raiding the schools.
Redfish will be schooling
right at sunrise during the
low-tide phase on shallow
flats that drain from large
bays in the Amelia River. Drift
a live shrimp under a "pop-
ping" cork. Cut mullet or
ladyfish fished dead on the
bottom is also a deadly sum-
mef- redfish tactic.
Capt. Gerald Wilder
reports a lot of small redfish
measuring from 10-16 inches
are now running in the back-
country waters.
Surf fishing should be best
during the mid day flooding
tide. Sand fleas have been
working best in recent days
for whiting, pompano and the
occasional red drum.

If you are looking for a
place to hunt this fall, you still
*have a chance to get a recre-
ational use permit for lthe
Nassau Wildlife Management
Area during the upcoming
hunting season. Nassau
WMA is 13,996 acres near
Callahan in Nassau County.
All users must possess a
Nassau recreational use per-
mit to hunt on this area.
Nassau WMA is a still-
hunt-only area, but hunters
may use bird dogs during the

migratory bird and waterfowl
hunting seasons.
For those willing to pay
$385 to hunt the area, Nassau
WMA provides hunting
opportunities during eight
months of the jyear:
Archery is from Sept. 25
through Oct. 24;
Muzzleloading gun sea-
son runs from Oct. 30
through Nov. 7;
General gun season is
from Nov. 13, 2010, through
Jan. 9, 2011;
Small game is from Jan.
10 through March 6, 2011;
Spring turkey season
runs from March 19 through
April 24, 2011; and
Trapping can be ddne
from Jan. 10 through March
1, 2011.
To apply for a recreational
use permit, go to
MyFWC.com/License and
click on "Recreational Public
Land Use."
Recreational use permits
are designed to provide more
revenue to landowners in the
WMA system. Money set
aside by the FWC to compen-
sate those landowners for
hunting on their lands was
not sufficient to compete with
private hunting leases. Rather
than have WMAs drop out of
the system, the FWC offers
recreational use permits.
Fees collected from these
permits supplement the com-
pensation for private landown-
ers, keeping their lands open
to public hunting.
Except for hunting, permit
holders and their spouses or
dependent children may par-
ticipate in other activities on
designated WMAs. Only per-
mit holders and one depend-
ent child under age 16) may
hunt. If spouses or more than
one dependent child (under
age 16) wish to hunt, they
must purchase a recreational
use permit. Recreational use
permits also include a man-
agement area permit when
hunting public lands not in
the recreational use program.
Recreational use permits
are area-specific and do not
apply to other recreational
use program areas. Once per-
mits are issued, they can be
renewed annually for two
additional years, essentially
making them a three-year
permit. Submit applications
online at https://www2.fl.wild
lifelicense.com/start.php or
take a completed worksheet
to a tax collector's office or
any license agent, and those
venues will submit the appli-
cation. Worksheets are avail-
able online at MyFWC.com/
I hunting (click on "Limited
Entry Hlunts"), at the FWC
regional office in Lake City as
well as tax collectors' offices.

Concert a family affair

For the News Leader
When Darrell
Parsons stood
up in his crib at
two years old
and sang "I'm Looking Over a
Four-Leaf Clover," his parents
weren't all that surprised,
since they were both musi-
.cians with a family band
called "Little Nell and the
Melodiers." Parsons went on
to receive degrees in classical
voice from the Music
Academy in Vienna, Austria,
and from Northwestern
While a graduate student
at Northwestern, he met and
subsequently married under-
grad music major Julie Fowle.
Says Julie, "I had heard him
sing and thought he was hot.
stuff! One day I was playing
the guitar in the music school
lounge and Darrell walked

out of his voice lesson. He
asked me to show him a few
things on the guitar, which I
was happy to do. Then he
asked me out on a date to go
to McDonald's for a burger.
He sang to me the song from
Brigadoon,'Come to Me,
Bend to Me,' so sweet and
high and that was it. I was in
love. He ended up being my

voice teacher my last semes-
ter and needless to say, I got
an A!"
Their respective careers
evolved, with Darrell per-
forming with the Vienna State
Opera and Julie becoming a
popular recording artist in the
'70s. Their first child,
