Undersheriff out

after 3 months

After just three months on the job,
Col. Mike Edwards resigned Sept 3 as
undersheriff of the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said the
split was amicable citing Edwards'
conclusion that the job was too time-
consuming along with his desire to
enjoy retired life while eschewing
What he called "fictitious rumors" cir-
culating about the colonel leaving.
."He- left in good standing,"
Seagraves said. "We're good friends
and have been since we were
teenagers. The last 90 days were good,
but he wanted to go back to being

Port job

The Ocean, Highway and Port
Authority voted Wednesday to retain
for the time being an administrative
services director appointed in July with-
out the full agreement of the board.
Jeanne Scott, who also does admiri-
istrative work for the county Planning
and Zoning Board, was appointed as an
interim replacement for OHPA direc-
tor of administrative services Kathy
Conger, who resigned in July for per-
sonal reasons.
At the OHPA's August meeting,
Chairman Ron Braddock said he had
used his authority as chair to "appoint
someone immediately to carry on
everyday business of the OHPA,"
according to meeting minutes.
He said Scott had inquired about
the position after hearing about it from
OHPA Commissioner Cari Cahill.
Cahill's father, Tom Ford, is chairman
of the Plannifig and Zoning Board.
Cahill made a motion at that meet-
ing to hire Scott permanently. Other
commissioners, however, wanted "time
to think," and the issue was tabled.
At Wednesday's meeting, Cahill
withdrew her motion to hire Scott.
"I personally feel that with two new
commissioners coming on board, they
should be involved in the hiring
process of Whoever we bring on
board," said Cahill. "They should be
able to interview and ask questions."
Cahill lost her District 4 seat to
Hilliard businessman Carrol Franklin
in the Aug. 24 primary election. Brian
Reaves, a county firefighter, prevailed
over Margie Gandy, port authority
District 3 commissioner.
"We could ask Miss Scott if she'll
continue to work in the interim,"
Braddock said. "We should also adver-
tise (the job opening).

6 alternate sites

for city
Six sites for a new boat ramp to
replace the one at the city downtown
marina were presented to city com-
missioners at their Tuesday meeting.
A seventh option, to do nothing and
leave the boat ramp as is, was also
offered as an alternative plan.
A plan to relocate the boat ramp to
the south end of the city marina, in
SParking Lot D, was deemed imprac-
tical by the Waterfronts Florida
Partnership Committee at a June
meeting. Since then, several options
for relocation of the ramp have been
suggested, but none have been met
with much enthusiasm.

County rehires state lobbyist

The Nassau County Commission
renewed the contract of its state lob-
byist for the coming year Wednesday.
Mark Anderson, who lobbies the
state legislature on'behalf of county
interests, is paid $60,000 per year by
the county for his services.
"This contract calls for annual
renewals," County Attorney David
A. Hallman told commissioners. "...
We're just here for your guidance
regarding renewal."
Commissioners said that
Anderson, who has lobbied for the
county since 2003, had brought state
funding to county projects that oth-
erwise might have languished.
"Without his help, I wouldn't have
gotten as far as we have already on a
drainage project in my district,"
Commissioner Walter Boatright said.

'You've earnedyour
grits and gravyfor
another year.'

"I, for one, appreciate what you've
done, Mark, and as far as I'm con-
cerned you've earned your grits and
gravy for another year."
"Thanks for all the help you've
Given Nassau County,"
Commissioner Danny Leeper said.
-"When we go to Tallahassee and
meet with you, it's clear that you have
the respect of the legislature."
Commission Chair Mike Boyle
said that while many considered
"lobbyist" a "dirty word," Anderson's
contacts in Tallahassee kept state

officials aware of the county's inter-
"When you see an agenda item
come up with the word 'lobbyist' on
it, right away the antennae go up,"
Boyle said. "... It's only when you sit
in these chairs here that you realize
that in order to have any impact at the
state level, you have to have someone
with Mark's expertise."
The commission voted unani-
mously to renew Anderson's.cori-
tract. However, they continued to
their Sept. 15 meeting discussion of
the contract for the county's other
lobbyist, Buddy Jacobs.
The commission hired the law
firm of Jacobs, Scholz and Associates
in 2008 to represent county interests
in Washington, D.C. The county pays
the firm $75,000 per year, plus up to
$5,000 per year in travel and lodging

Few talk

of city


tax rate

Only a handful of residents showed
up Tuesday at City Hall for the first of
two public hearings on the city's pro-
posed 2010-11 budget and tax rate
Several residents spoke, but there was
no discussion by commissioners as to
the.budget itself.
Resident Leonard Nail said the com-
munity needed to understand that the
economy is not going to recover in the
next five years, and that property taxes
would be stagnant during that time.
He also said the city had done a
"fabulous job" of managing the budg-
et, but that it was still on a "dangerous
collision course" because pension
funds were still increasing up to $1
million in the next four years.
Nall also suggested the city look at
the number of police officers it
employed as well as other big expen-
"The economyisn't automatically
turning around," Nail said.
Tony Baia, owner of Amelia Island
Graphics, said his business had been
struggling as never before in the last
two years. "For the first time, I had to
tell staff I could no longer fully pro-
vide health care coverage or match
their 401k," he said. "We need to be in
this all together. If we can't support
each other, we're in bad shape."
"As a member of the chamber of
commerce, I urge you to hold the line
on taxes," Baia went on. "Every dollar
that goes to business ... can provide
health care coverage. We appreciate
the difficult choices you face, but you
still have time to hold the line. Thanks
for your dedication and support for
our beautiful city."
Resident Michele Kling, who has
been outspoken about what she says is
excessive city spending, told commis-
sioners they should "go into a disabled
person's house that didn't get a (cost of
living raise.)" Some of these people,
she said, are living on $1,100 a month
and are forced to keep their air condi-
tioners at 83 degrees to cut costs. After
paying for property taxes, Medicare,
electric and water fees and prescrip-
tions, she said, these people are left
with less than $400 a month to survive
"Mr. Poynter, these people can't get
up and leave (town)," Kling said, refer-
ring to a previous statement by Vice
Mayor Tim Poynter that there is a cost
to living in Fernandina Beach. "We
need to think about those who were
born and raised here. I'm begging you
to reconsider this (budget) and think
about the people in the community."
The new "rollback" millage rate has
been set at 4.7905 for 2010-11, up from
4.6612 for the 2009-10 fiscal year. The
new rate, which is not*considered a

Right whale study

focuses on boaters

south every winter to give
birth in waters near Northeast
Florida and southeast Georgia.
During that trip, North
Atlantic right whales face two
major threats: fishing gear and
boats. University of Florida
researchers are embarking on
a two-year study that is the first
attempt to map boating traffic
patterns in the Northeast
Florida area.
The UF researchers, Bob
Swett and Charles Sidman, will
use geographic information
system, or GIS, technology to
better understand boater trav-
el patterns off the coasts of St
Johns, Duval and Nassau coun-
ties. The work will begin with
boater surveys, answering
questions about their usual
routes and seasonal boating

The researchers will also
take to the air to log positions
and characteristics of recre-
ational-boats.; ,', *.
"Otice 'ou have the patl-'
terns, you can startcompar-
ing them to the known sight-
ings of right whales to find
the hotspots, if you will," said
Sidman, associate director for
research for Florida Sea Grant,
a UF-hosted ocean and coastal
science program.
Somewhere between 325
and 400 whales remain of the
species that was hunted near-
ly to extinction by 18th- and
19th-century whalers.
It's been illegal to hunt
right whales since 1935, but
vessel strikes and fishing gear.
entanglement continue to be a
threat to the creatures, which
can grow 55 feet long and
weigh 70 tons.
The whales typically arrive

keep the same amount of taxes
coming into the city even
though property values have
fallen. However, last year there
was a property tax shortfall even
though the rollback rate was set
higher than the year before.
According to City Finance
Director Patti Clifford, most of
the city's.budget cuts this year
were in personnel costs, by way
of changes to the employees'
health care plan, and cuts to trav-
el, training and overtime expens-
es. Several full-time positions
were also eliminated, but in the
end exempt city employees -
including City Manager Michael
Czymbor'- and firneand police

personnelwere given raises of at
least 2 percent.
New revenue sources, to
raise money in order to make up
for budget shortfalls, included a
plan to install parking kiosks in
the city, which was estimated to
bring in $1.5 million annually. A
new stormwater fee will also
'bring in revenue, Clifford said,

flow through the marina.
A start, Williams said, would
be to have an analysis of the
load-carrying capacity and con-
dition of the current boat ramp
before any other decisions are
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter
said the comments he had been
getting from citizens were most-
ly concerned about closing the
city marina boat ramp, even
though there are at least a half-
dozen other boat ramps around
the county.
"Their biggest concern is
moving (the boat ramp) out of
downtown," Poynter said,
"(because) it is an integral part
of the downtown fabric."
Czymbor said marine man-
agement company Westrec had
also made some valid points in
that the boat ramp "almost hin-
ders the operation of the mari-
"Westrec is complaining
about the boat ramp, but they
took the marina as is," said
Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch.
"I like the 'do nothing'
approach." As far as putting the
boat ramp under the Shave.
Bridge, he said, "it's not in the
city ... it's not logical even if it's
free money (to build it). I'd
rather keep it as it is right now.
Leave what we have until it falls
in. Why do we need it ifwe'have
one at the north end?"
"Clearly it needs to remain
downtown," Poynter said. That
was my total and unequivocal

feeling from people I talked to."
"We need to find out from
an engineer if it's viable," Bunch
said. "It's only used by 12 people
a day."
Czymbor suggested a
"three-pronged approach" to the
problem, by looking at changes
to the marina, such as a break-
water; amending existing water-
front plans to change the loca-
tion of the boat ramp; and
develop an optimal location.
Lou Goldman, who is also a
member of the waterfronts com-
mittee, said the idea originally
came from committee mem-
bers. Goldman said they wanted
to move the boat ramp so the
boardwalk could be contiguous,
but later found out that other
structures such as Atlantic
Seafood,'Bait and Tackle were
also in the way.
"If you put dry storage in,
they can't make any money, it's
too expensive," Goldman said.
"We might be able to have more
than 12 spaces. We could use
the parking lot by City Hall. I
would rather see the money
used for Front Street or the
waterfront park.... We've got a
boat ramp there. We can go
back to the drawing board and
leave it where it is."
Resident Mac Morriss said
the boat ramp, where it is locat-
ed now, draws people to the'
marina because it creates inter-
est. "People will watch boats go
in and out the ramp," he said.
"It's a very important issue ... it
draws people down to it"

3 arrestedin conspiracy

to sell vehicle, drugs


The sheriffs office arrested
three Jacksonville men Sept. 2
who were allegedly involved in
a conspiracy to sell a vehicle and
an ounce of marijuana to under-
cover detectives in Nassau
Latavisa Lamar Bell, 19,
made a deal to meet with under-
cover detectives Sept. 2 to sell a
2001 Chevy Impala with 22-inch
rims and an ounce of marijuana
for $2,500, after undercover
detectives inquired about a for
sale sign on the car while con-
ducting a controlled purchase
of crack cocaine a day earlier,
police said.
Bell, who agreed to meet the
next day in a fast-food parking
lot in Yulee near 1-95 to make
the transaction, allegedly told
the detectives the car originally

belonged to his uncle, who is in
Christopher Laval Wells, 26,
and Gregory Paul Walton, 19,

scene in a separate vehicle,
police said.
After allowing detectives to
look over the car, Bell report-
edly pulled out the title and
instructed them to sign his
name and write down the car
was a gift, allegedly to avoid pay-
ing taxes, police said. The title
was still in the name of James
Bell of Jacksonville, police said.
Bell also allegedly agreed to
sell the ounce of marijuana to
the undercover detectives, but
said they would need to follow
him across the Duval County
line because "Nassau County is
not safe," police said.
Detectives then signaled
takedown units to move in
and secure the three men,

police said.
Upon searching Walton's
vehicle, police allegedly found a
small amount of marijuana
inside the center console and a
baggie of marijuana under the
seat, police said.
Bell, Walton and Wells were
all arrested and taken to the
Nassau County Jail. Wells and
Walton were charged with crim-
inal attempt, solicitation or con-
spiracy to commit a third-degree
felony and possession of less
than 20 grams of marijuana but

for auto loans

Having witnessed the
good, the bad and the ugly in
co-signing outcomes, it is a
topic-worth exploring.
The healthiest and most
common co-signing opportu-
nity is when a parent endorses
their young.adult child's first
auto note. Years ago when
credit cards were not so readi-
ly available to college students
and other 19-year-olds, a
young adult needing to
finance a car had no prior
credit background to justify a
bank loan. Dad or Mom, usu-
ally Dad, would sign the first
car note and open up the wide'
world of credit. With six
months to a year of good pay-
ment history, the new young
car buyer started getting the
credit card offers in the mail,
and the credit dam was open.
Credit standards were
there to make sure the paren-
tal co-signer and new borrow-
er were off to a prudent start
prudent being a downpay-
ment and an affordable mon-
thly payment for their income.
It worked like a champ and
still does when the parent has
good credit and makes sure
their child is not buying too
much vehicle. Even today,
when many younger buyers
have some credit history
involving lower dollars,
adding a parent's endorse-
ment on the note can lower
the rate and the payback.
A young buyer going to a
non-parent relative to co-sign
is usually not a good sign.
Why won't Mom or Dad sign?
Do they disagree with the pur-
chase or not have what it
takes to make a good co-sign-
er? I have seen grandparents,
cousins and uncles end up on
the short end of the stick.
There can be exceptions. If
the parents aren't local and
another relative is, then it
might make more sense. Len-
ders don't like long distance
co-signers as well as they do
local ones. When it is time to
collect on a delinquent
account in Jacksonville, a
parental co-signer in Phoenix
doesn't work as well. Non-rela-
'.tves beingasked to co-sign is

an uphill bat-
tle. The

ber, etc., is

couples often
Rick Keffer both sign the
note, which is a good idea.
They both get credit-for the
good account history and a
good credit rating is a valu-
able asset in today's world.
With older buyers, if one pass-
es away the car is still in the
other's name and easier to
convert. Ido not consider this
co-signing as much as co-pur-
chasing. The increasing num-
ber of unmarried couples
makes things more interest-
ing. My advice is to be upfront
with the lender if you co-pur-
chase a vehicle, but to try to
go it alone if possible.
Good credit co-signers do
not balance out the bad credit
applicant. A co-signer is there
for the under-established
credit risk, not the bad credit
risk. If you do sign, even for a
son or daughter, make sure
you qualify what they are or
are not bringing to the table. I
like to point out exceptions,
because they exist in most
things. A newly married cou-
ple can be a good credit/ bad
credit combo love is a pow-
erful thing. In this case, the
good partner signs first and if
the lender allows it, the bad
credit one signs also. Putting
the bad one on the note is a
step to their credit recovery.
Co-signing remains a valu-
able tool, generally for a first
auto loan. Like most things we
do, our instincts are usually
right. I hope this helps a few
people with this decision.

Their argument seems to suggest that if
such decisions were left to the people, out-
comes would be different. The assumption
underlying this argument is that the people
are more apt to vote for the greater good than
Swill the politicians. Such an assumption seems
somewhat naive, denying the very essence of
human nature: self-interest.

The "Money Thing" plays a huge role in

primarily industrial development in a mixed-use
planned unit development (PUD), which
became the most valuable industrial land in
Nassau County. Running east of Chester Road
between A1A and the railroad, its proximity to
Amelia Island's beaches and golf courses is an
important inducement to business owners to
relocate operations here. In 2004 the PUD was
amended to allow 70 acres for non-industrial
use with the remainder for industry.
Nassau Center currently includes the Keffer
auto dealership, the county government com-
plex and a string of small commercial establish-
ments. By county records only 37.5 acres are
still available for non-industrial use with the
irmaining 101 acres designated for industrial.
Yet in 2008 the county commission and its
planners approved "in concept" a huge develop-
ment for Nassau Center that would change
most of the industrial land to commercial. This
is clearly a "non-conforming use" in violation of
the PUD ordinance; the county has dared the
community to come up with the $50,000 neces-

For Nassau to compete in the global mar-
ket, we need to be on the forefront in creating
new, knowledge-based jobs. The key to attract-
ing these jobs is good infrastructure, low taxes
and available industrial land. With that job-cre-
ating environment, we can attract technology
jobs, which are high paying and often times
grow and attract new ventures. But most of our
political leaders and planners don't understand
this. Instead they help developers and land
speculators build more retail and houses.

Facts, not opinions
I am curious as to why the local
Tea Party organization feels a need to
address the Nassau County school
students regarding the Constitution
("Patriots. champion Constitution in
schools," Sept. 1). Does the current
curriculum not do a satisfactory job?
I have a few friends who are Tea
Party members both here and in
North Carolina, and most of them are
honestly concerned regarding the
increasing -national debt. Some of
them, however, take it a bit farther to
the point where any federal program
not specifically mentioned in the
Constitution should be considered ille-
gal. This would include everything
from the FBI, the IRS and federal aid
for schools, Social Security, Medicare,
unemployment compensation and
numerous other programs passed by
Congress through the years.
As a former high school history
teacher I hold the Constitution in the
highest possible regard, and I also
recognize the importance of teaching
our students facts, not opinions. The
founding fathers were not a unified
group to say the least, representing a
wide array of religions and beliefs. We
seem to have forgotten what I consid-
er one of the most important lessons
taught by the Constitution: that it was
written by a diverse group of men who
had the maturity and sense to put aside
personal beliefs and egos for the pur-
pose of creating a framework which
would best enable our fledgling coun-
try to grow, prosper and defend itself.

Kudos tolifeguards
With the end of the American sum-
mer season, I wanted to offer con-
gratulations-and commend the life-

guards for a season with no souls lost
on their watch.
I know the winds of fate and their
brother, the sea, played their role as
well, but I personally witnessed the
lifeguards constantly telling people
about riptides, placing signs where
riptides were occurring and being
called out to save people in trouble.
Kudos to this professional team.

Charity on the roads
An accident waiting to happen! A
few days ago at thejntersection of A1A
and Amelia Parkway the "boot" col-
lection was taking place. There was
an ambulance parked in the median
with lights on; the light along A1A
toward town was green and a truck
stopped in the middle of the intersec-
tion to make a donation. Fortunately,
the several cars behind the truck were
alert and hit their brakes thus avoid-
ing an accident. I imagine this is not
the first time a close call has happened.
Days earlier another entity was col-
lecting for the homeless at the inter-
section of Sadler and South 14th Street
(a very busy intersection). The col-
lectors were putting themselves at risk
by coming up to the cars as the lights
were turning; one person narrowly
missed injury as a car made a left turn
into his path as he was leaving the
intersection to stand on the median.
I have nothing against legitimate
charities doing what they do, but is
there not a better way to solicit funds
without increasing the probability of

Baptist Nassau sponsors challenge

For the News-Leader

Biking, running, walking,
brain games and teamwork
are all great for your health.
That's why Baptist Medical
Center Nassau is title spon-
sor of the inaugural Amelia

fundraiser for
the Rotary
r is Club of
Amelia Island
pits teams of
four against
Mayo each other in
a variety of
physical and
mental challenges. It takes
place Oct. 23 at the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center.
The goal: to have fun and
raise funds for local, regional
and international causes sup-
ported by the Rotary Club.
"This is a great event that
focuses on healthy fun.
Baptist-Nassau, along with
the.whole Baptist Health
System, is happy to support
it," says Jim Mayo,.Baptist
Nassau administrator. "In the
past few years, Baptist Health
has strengthened its commit-
ment to promoting healthier
lifestyles throughout the
community, especially in the
workplace. AC2010 really ties
into this effort."
According to Mayo, sever-
al years ago the Baptist sys-
tem organized a comprehen-
sive internal wellness
program called "Healthy For

Barb Kent and her team work on one of the mental challenges, supervised by Chip
Townsend, last week at a test run of the inaugural Amelia Challenge, to be held Oct.
23 at the Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center. Another tryout is scheduled Tuesday.

Life" that provides employ-
ees with the tools and motiva-
tion to exercise, eat healthy
and get regular checkups. It
includes annual wellness
screenings, activities and
strong incentives to set and
keep personal wellness goals.
Also during this time, the
entire hospital campus
became smoke and tobacco
free. Last spring it received a
grant from the Florida Health
Department to provide free
tobacco cessation counseling
and assistance throughout
Nassau County. The

"Addicted to Life Not
Tobacco" program is now
available to patients, employ-
ees and their families, with
plans to expand.
Healthy for Life and
Addicted to Life representa-
tives will be present during
the challenge in October to
answer questions about
implementing workplace
health and wellness pro-
grams, Mayo said.
"We are so grateful to the
hospital and our other spon-
sors for their support," says
Art Shuster, Rotary Sunrise

president. "The Amelia
Island Sunrise Rotary Club is
a young club and our mem-
bers wanted to come up with'
a new, energetic and fun way
to do good in our community.
A portion of the entry fee for
each team will go to a non-
profit charity of their choice;
the balance will support
Rotary's ongoing philan-
thropic programs."

Waves, storms and bowing

.Waves crashing, people
watching and cars lined
up everywhere. I love
the ocean after a storm.
Though most of the people were
surfers and spectators, my wife
Christie and I love to walk. You
never know what you might find.
Such was the case after the recent
Hurricane Earl made its way up the
eastern coastline.
Thankfully, for our community,
the storm was a good ways offshore.
Thankfully, for the surfers, it was
close enough to generate some
decent waves.
I never cease to be amazed by all
the treasures left behind by a good
storm. Things that no doubt have
spent their entire existence hidden
in the depths of the ocean suddenly

things, broken
things, and things
mysteriously intact.
For Christie and
me, it's kind of like
going to a yard sale
- if you get there -
before others you
never know what
you might find.
In either case,
that day the oceai's
treasures were
plentiful and mostly
unexplored. It was
there, while scan-

ning the beach, that we saw him a
man we had not seen in years. As we
waved back and forth to each other,
it was clear that he wanted to talk.
"How are you?" he said while

walking toward us.
"We're doing great," we replied.
"How about yourself?"
"Well, you've heard haven't you?
I'm divorced," he announced. The
brokenness in his voice could not be
hid. In that moment, my wife and 1
both knew we were looking at a dif-
ferent man. It was then that he began
to tell us about the deep pain, and
real change, that had been occurring
in his life. .
"It's like in the past I was blind to
my condition," he said. "I blamed
others and made excuses for my
actions; but now I know. For the
most part, I've been the problem all
along," he said matter-of-factly. "I've
been selfish and living to the opin-
ions of people and not to God. I've
been living a lie. Strange isn't it?" he
said. "That at such a horrible time in

Hilliard hero wins national CIS award

Community Newspapers

A local educator will be honored in
Washington, D.C., for her dedication to
Hilliard Middle-Senior High School stu-
Communities in Schools of Nassau
County Site Coordinator Dr. Bernita
Dinwiddie is one of five nominated to
receive CIS' Unsung Heroes Award for
her commitment to helping students stay
in school and prepare for life.
Communities in Schools assists students
with tutoring, state testing preparation
and career education.
Dinwiddie has been involved with the
non-profit locally since 2007, following her
retirement from education after 32 years.
She earned a doctorate degree in educa-
tion from lxoyola University in 2001.
During her lengthy teaching career,
she rose to the positions of assistant prin-
cipal and principal before retiring in 2005
from Chicago's public school system.
While in Chicago, Dinwiddie served as a
liaison to CIS for four years and was
already familiar with the national program.
She left retirement to join CIS of Nassau
County at the suggestion ofthen-HMSHS
Principal Dale Braddock. Her son, Todd
Dinwiddie, and his wife, Channell, have
three sons, Austin, Stone and Payton, who
attend school in Hilliard.


"I have always been
concerned about chil-
dren and their educa-
tion," Dinwiddie said. "I
like to see children
achieve and I like to
motivate them to be the
best they can be."
CIS Executive
Director Susan Milana
nominated Dinwiddie for

the national award.
"Dr. D's passion for children, sensitiv-
ity to their unique needs and diligence in
finding and coordinating services on their
behalf is a model for service professionals
and CIS site coordinators everywhere,"
Milana wrote in her recommendation let-
ter. "She instills a calming confidence as
she listens, coaches, manages, leads,
serves and supports throughout her work-
day. Her sense of humor and supportive
manner puts everyone around her at ease.
As her leader, I also learn from Dr. D as we
work together."
While Dinwiddie is excited about
receiving the award, she notes that her
nomination as an Unsung Hero is a col-
laborative effort
"It's not abott me," she said. "It's the
administration at CIS, at Hilliard Middle-
Senior High' School and Nassau County
Schools. Without their help I couldn't do
this. The teachers and staff at this school

are fantastic and they're doing all they
can to help students and that's what it's all
about to me."
HMSHS Assistant Principal Cheryl
Copps submitted a letter in support of
Dinwiddie's nomination and commended
her focus on each person as well as her
guidance and wisdom.
Dinwiddie said she is honored to serve
Sthe parents in the community.
"I think it means a lot to the community
because CIS is one more resource they
can come to and they know we're going to
be listening to what they're spying," she
said. "Whatever issue is important to them
is important to us and we try to help them
address the issue."
CIS Career Coach Hilda Loyd has
worked alongside Dinwiddie for nearly
four years and was pleased to learn of the
nomination, saying, "We are very blessed
to have Dr. Dinwiddie as our site director."
A date for the all expenses paid trip to
Washington, D.C., has not been finalized.
However, CIS President DanielJ. Cardinali
sent his congratulations in the award noti-
fication letter, writing, "We are thrilled
and honored to offer you this award for
being a shining example to others in our
network, as well as the children of our
nation. Thank you for all you do every
day to help students stay in school and pre-
pare for life. We very much look forward
to meeting you in the fall."

The start of the Turtle Trot 5K/1OK Saturday, left, and the start of the kids' one-mile fun run, right.

More than 200 compete in 2010 Turtle Trot

For the News-Leader

A break in'the scorching summer of 2010.
came just in time for hundreds of runners in
the Turtle Trot 5K/10K road race Saturday
"I think you guys had some amazing weath-
er for the beginning of September," said Lauren
Diaz of Jacksonville, winner of the women's 10K
race with a time of 46:05.
The 5Kwormen's winner, Dr. DianaTwiggs of
Fernandina Beach, appreciated "one of the bet-
ter weather days we've had recently, without as
.nuch humidity." '
Twiggs, 39, a physician in Fernandina Beach,
:s a veteran runner who has done 32 marathons.
As was the casifor a number of the other 5K run-
ners, her finishing time (23:49) was considerably
slower than her usual 5K race pace. Somewhat,
slower times are typical in summer heat, but
this time, it wasn't the weather.
Because of a series of unexpected problems,
no one was positioned at the 5K halfway point to
turn the rufnqgs around and the turnaround
sign fell down. As a result, a large number of run-
ners ran too far. Others, who remembered the
turnaround point from past races or were wear-
ing GPS units, turned at or near the right place.
"I looked at my watch and knew I had missed
the turnaround," Twiggs said. "I turned around
and started yelling to people, Turn around.'"
She estimates that she wound up running
about 3.5 miles instead of 3.1.
In announcements after the race and on its
wybsite, the Amelia Island Runners club apolo-
gized to all of the runiiers affected arid"' aid'
organizers are reviewing their race planning
"We have already identified additional meas-
ures that we can and will -take to make sure
that this doesn't happen again," the website
statement said.
"It's a volunteer organization and everyone
did the best they could. Things happen," Twiggs
While it was good to win her third race, she
acknowledged that her official time was disap-
pointing because she had aimed to run a 5K
distance in under 21 minutes. "People are going
to look at (the winning time of 23:49) and say, 'I
'should have done this race."
Men's 5Kwinner Bradley Bunch of Fernan-
dina Beach called the conditions "almost perfect -
There was sunshine, and it was warm, not hot.
There was eveh a breeze as we were going up
Atlantic Avenue at the start of the race."
"Doing wellin races like these helps keep me
motivated to continue training," said Bunch,
18, who finished in 18:52. He ran cross country
and track at FBHS before graduating this spring,
and now attends Florida State College at
Men's winner in the 10Kwas Mike Kilbourne,
32, of Richmond Hill, Ga., who serves in the
Army at Ft Stewart and competes in Jacksonville
area races. He finished the 6.2-mile distance in
36:11, and found the course enjoyable, espe-
cially the "very scenic, very serene" second leg
through Fort Clinch State Park.
"I know there were some issues with the 5K,
but I thought the 10K course was very well
marked, especially into the state park where at
times you're the only person" in sight, Diaz said.
"I had a great experience.
"Everyone was very nice, and it benefited a

5K winners were Bradley Bunch, above left, and Diana Twiggs, above center. 1 0K
winners were Mike Kilbourne, above right, and Lauren Diaz, below left. 5K masters
winners were Bill Beaumont, below center, and Alicia Parker, below right.

,great cause. It was an awesome day for me."
SProceeds from the event will benefit Amelia
Island SeaTurtle Watch and turtle patrols inside
Fort Clinch State Park. The sea turtle artwork
'on the race award plaques and T-shirts was cre-
ated by local artist Sandra Baker-Hinton, who dis-
played the original watercolor at the awards cer-
emony after the race.
4 "She does fantastic work with the art," 5K
winner Twiggs said. "The plaques are an a'maz-
ing keepsake."
Photos from the event, including finish-line
pictures from the 5K, 10K and children's runs,
are available free at the AIR website,
AmelialslandRunners.com.. Complete results
from the 5K and 10K are also available there.
A total of 211 runners andwalkers were timed
in the 5K, and 165 in the 10K Also held as part
of the day's events were a 1.5-mile noneompet-
itive walk and two fun runs foi children. The
5K/10K races began early, at 7:30 a.m., to help
beat the heat.
In the 5K masters division of runners age
40 and over, the overall winners were Bill
Beaumont, 53, of Yulee in 19:34, and Alicia

S -. a .. .- .
Parker, 49, of Fernandina Beach in 24:53. In the
grandmasters division, age 50 and over, the over-
allwinners were Greg Parker, 53, of Fernandina
Beach in 24:28 and Cathy Campbell, 54, of
Baxley, Ga., in 33:13.
In the 10K, masters winners were Don
Packard, 44, of Jacksonville in 40:29, and Susan
Briers, 55, of St. Augustine in 49:49.
Grandmasters winners were George Thompson,
50, of Jacksonville in 43:13, and Barbara Bruns,
51, of Jacksonville in 1:01:00. (UnderTurtleTrot
race rules, duplicate awards aren't presented
for runners who would qualify as winners in
both the masters and grandmasters categories.)
The club's next event will be the Reindeer
Run 5K/10K, walk and kids' runs, Saturday,
Dec. 4, which promises to be a cooler day. As a
result, the 5K/10Kwill start an hour later, at 8:30
a.m., at the same location, the Atlantic Recreation
Center. Almost all of the 5K and 10K routes will
be through Fort Clinch State Park. Details and
an entry form are available at the AIR website.

Can mouthguard improve performance?

A s Super Bowl XLIV
was heading into
the final minutes,
Reyton Manning
was leading the Colts down
the field for what may have
been the game-winning drive.
However, he was picked off
by Saints cornerback Tracy
Porter, who returned the
interception 70 yards for a
touchdown, sealing the
Saints' victory.
Porter later gave credit for
his outstanding play during
the season to the coaching
staff, his teammates and, of
all things, his mouthpiece.
Porter was wearing a Pure
Power Mouthguard, a cus-
tomized dental orthotic de-
signed specifically to improve
athletic performance. You will
likely begin to see more and
more of these in the mouths
of other athletes. They are
easy to spot, with PPM across
the front of the mouthguard.
Porter is among several
Saints players who wear the
orthotic and sing its praises.


Bode Miller,
who won
gold in the
Olympics in
February in
Canada, also
wore a PPM
during the
"It is pret-
ty hokey, but
it makes a
difference in
your physi-
cal abilities,"

Miller was quoted in Mens
Journal magazine, adding he
felt more stable and more
likely to have a cleaner run
with the device in place.
Other proponents include
Evander Holyfield and
Shaquille O'Neal.
The PPM is the creation of
Canadian dentist Dr. Anil
Makkar, who first made a
similar device in 2006 for a

lobstermann who was suffer-
ing from headaches due to a
jaw disorder. The lobsterman
noted his headaches didn't
disappear, but he felt much
stronger and lifting became
more effortless while wearing
his orthotic.
Dr. Makkar felt the orthot-
ic actually improves overall
head and neck alignment,
reducing strain on neck and
shoulder muscles, allowing
for tension-free performance.
The device is not your typical
boil it and bite down mouth-
piece, but instead a patented
technology that uses electri-
cal impulses and muscle
responses to determine at
what jaw position this "relax-
ation effect" is maximized.
Typically this testing takes
about 45 minutes per athlete.
A 2008 study out of
Rutgers University also sup-
ports the claims of athletic
performance improvement.
Dr. Shawn Arent, director of
Rutgers' human performance
lab, noted that while gains

were not huge, there were
statistically significant
improvements in strength
and power while wearing the
The electrical testing and
custom fitting for the PPM-
costs around $2,000. Those
who use it report feeling
fresher, stronger and more
efficient. Under Armour also
has a "Performance
Mouthguard," which is cus-
tom fit by a dentist as well,.
and sells for about $500.

Late summer can produce big bass like the one David
Sovchen is all smiles over. Buzz baits and large bladed
spinner baits attract trophy bass strikes during early
morning hours while night fishing for trophy bass is
always a sure bet.

Tides Saturday will find a
flood tide arriving at 11:33
a.m. and a low tide arriving at
5:44 p.m.
Look for redfish to school
late in the afternoon south of
the Shave Bridge, where
large flats drain into the ,
Amelia River. Cut mullet
fished dead on the bottom is a
sure way to put a deep bend
in your redfish fishing rod.
Tarpon fishing remains
excellent at the tip of the St
Marys jetty rocks during the
last of the falling and during
the middle of the incoming
tides. Fish dead on the bot-
tom with cut mullet, whiting
or menhaden. Chumming
with small cut pieces of men-
haden will certainly improve
your odds with an exciting
date with a high leaping "sil-
ver king."

Bull reds are beginning to
school at the St. Marys inlet
for their annual fall spawning
season. Once again, cut baits
fished on the bottom will pro-
duce bull reds weighiii over
the 30-pound mark. Try deep
jigging during the slow mov-
ing tides with a white deer
hair, led head jig in the four-
to eight-ounce sizes.
Offshore fishermen are
catching gag grouper at FA
fish haven to 25 pounds while
fishing on the high sides of
large rock ledges. Best baits
continue to be live pinfish, fin-
ger mullet or menhaden.
Surf fishing remains excel-
lent for good eating whiting
while fishing with fresh local
shrimp. Be sure to target the
late morning flood tide when
the water is clean.
The News-Leader encour-
ages local anglers to submit
photographs oftheir catches.

'Fiber Art Celebration'

American Beach exhibit to feature fanciful works in'fabric


become an artist. Born in -
Tuskegee, Ala., she attended
Tuskegee Institute College,
majored in Early Childhood Education
and eventuallywent to work for
BellSouth, retiring in 1996 after 22 years.
But in 2001, when her husband pined
for a piece of Memphis Wood's work for
their home, McCray got an idea. She
Decided that she could do what Memphis
did and while driving in Riverside, she
envisioned an art piece that now hangs on
the wall in their house in Fernandina. It
was made using piping rope covered with
fabrics and enhanced with African beads,
old broken jewelry, napkin rings and
other found items.
While she has no formal art training;
McCray loves to quilt and make items
from fabric and castaways that others
would normally not use. Her passion has

grown from that first project in 2001 to
include birds, dolls, purses, wall hang-
ings, baskets, pincushions, sewing kits,
bears and some furniture pieces. .
Still, she doesn't see herself as an
artist, just a person who gets her therapy
from fabric and found items. "For exam-
ple, I just finished a bird whose hat is a lid
from the container that they put butter in
at the restaurants. It is perfect to use with
a beautiful button as a 'wide brim hat,'"
she explained in an email. She believes
that "it is not what others see, but what I
Her pieces also are educational, such
as a bird made of black fabric with a rope
of African fabric wrapped and tied around
it. "It is this way based on an African
proverb that says, 'It is hard to tie a wise
man in a knot.' I usually have a story that
goes with most of the items that I make.I'
have learned so much doing this, because
I usually research the history relative to
an item and to make sure that I know
what Iam doing. This also helps my cre-

ative juices to 'think beyond the box' and
tell a realistic story with fabric," said
S"I make most of these things for fun,
but I am called a lot to show them," said
the artist, whose work has gained inter-
national attention since exhibits at NASA,
the Ritz LaVilla Theatre Museum, Haskell
Gallery at Jacksonville International
Airport, Jacksonville Women's Center,
craft shows, the Riverside Fine Art,
Series, MOCA and The Cummer
Museum. Her pieces also are sold at Jan's
Quilt-n-Stitch, 74384 East SR 200 near the
county fire station in O'Neil.

sary of American Beach on Sept. 25 from
