The Florida Gators have
owned the Georgia
Bulldogs for most of the
past two decades, but this
year the Dawgs are fright-
ening given their winning
streak and the Gators'
losing streak.
The annual Halloween
weekend influx of Bulldog
fans will have plenty to
encourage them from a
colorful flag in the win-
dow at the Book Loft,
from top, to a feisty bull-
dog watching over the
entrance to Go Fish to the

County spending

rises $1.I million

The Nassau County Commission
has caused controversy with its han-
dling of $1.5 million in back taxes
received from Smurfit-Stone Container
The money, received on Sept. 10,
was not included in the county's final
budget for 2010-11. Instead, it was
divvied up on Oct. 11 among the com-
missioners' "level and overlay" funds
- money each commissioner uses to
repair roads in his or her district.
Commission Chair Mike Boyle and
Commissioner Danny Leeper request-
ed their shares about $300,000 apiece
- go toward the Nassau County
Library System's quest for a new build-
ing for its Fernandina Beach branch.
The library is considering a move to a
Centre Street building.
The other three commissioners
said they would use their share on

About$600,000 of the 'windfall'revenue will be
usedfor a new library in Fernandina Beach.

road projects in their districts.
County Manager Ted Selby said
the Smurfit-Stone money wasn't
included in the final budget because it
came in only days before the first
budget hearing on Sept. 13.
"Basically what happened is, the
Friday before the first public hearing
is when we learned about this money,"
he said Tuesday. "Everything was
already prepared when this came in."
But the city included its estimated
back tax from Smurfit in its budget
deliberations. The estimated revenue
was listed and used to balance pro-
posed spending.
Both the city and county were due
the back tax, which was not paid
because of a tax dispute that then

became entangled when Smurfit-Stone
filed for bankruptcy. The company
emerged from Chapter 11 proceed-
ings earlier this year. *
Some Nassau County residents
were upset that citizens didn't get the
opportunity to give their input on how
the $1.5 million should be spent.
Michele Kling, who is prominent in
the Nassau Patriots Tea Party, felt the
money should have been used to ease
property owners' tax burden.
"This was not $100,000 but over
$1.5 million," she wrote in an Oct. 22
email to Office of Management and
Budget Director Shanea Jones. "How

City lights: On again, off again

-400 streetlights to go dark

News Leader

Residential complaints about the
city's new streetlight-reduction pro-
gram it ultimately will shut off 400
streetlights have obliged the city to
adjust its criteria for their planned
City Engineer Glenn Semanisin
said many residents have been call-
ing the city to complain about street-
lights possibly being removed at
school bus stops. This should not be
a concern for parents, he said, because

all streetlights will remain at inter-
sections, which is where bus stops are
The city has also received calls and
emails from parents asking the city to
check the streetlight-reduction list
against the list of sexual predators.
The city police department, he said,
will be handling those concerns.
Some residents have also been 'call-
ing to ask why their streets have never
had streetlights at all, Semanisin said.
Due to complaints of poorly lit
streets, City Manager Michael
Czymbor added a new criterion to the

light-removal program that would
allow no more than one-third of the
lights on any street to be removed. As
a result, Semanisin said, the work
order was rescinded for three 'street-
lights so far, and those were turned
back on.
According to Semanisin, about 400
streetlights will eventually go dark
tfliioughout the city in an effort to
reduce costs 25-35 percent. The city
has been paying about $20,000 a
month for its 1,200 streetlights.

City, airport still squabble

McGill Aviation and the city of
Fernandina Beach continue to argue
- over a disputed fence and damages
and attorney fees owed the fixed base
operator despite settling a long-run-
ning suit earlier this year.
The city still owes more than
$30,000 for damages in the lawsuit it
essentially lost against McGill Aviation,
which operates out of the municipal
airport, according to owner John

Earlier this year, Judge Brian Davis
accepted an arbitrator's judgment
ordering the city to pay McGill
$400,000 and allow the company to
continue business at the airport.
McGill's lease ends in 2018.
McGill, as the prevailing party in
the 2004 lawsuit, is also entitled to
attorney fees and costs, but those have
yet to be determined. According to
City Attorney Tammi Bach, a court
date to settle that matter has been
scheduled for March.
In an open letter to city staff and
commissioners, McGill also com-

plained that the city is still using land
that technically is part of the fixed
base operator's leasehold. A city-spon-
sored survey of the airport indicated
that McGill Aviation's boundary actu-
ally lies outside a fence the city erect-
ed on airport property, he said.
The city, he says, refuses to move
the fence even though McGill's oper-
ations are supposed to be inside the
boundary. McGill is seeking an injunc-
tion to compel the city to move the
fence to comply with the survey's find-

on October 4th with his wife,
Jean, at his bedside. Born and
raised in Brooklyn, NY, he spent
most of his adult life in
Huntington, NY until retiring
to Florida in the 1980's.

said. Some locations will be

Bach said the city "is not
dragging its feet to be annoy-
ing or difficult," but rather is
"trying to sit down with the
attorneys to work everything
out." McGill's injunction, she
said, makes it more difficult
to do so.
McGill says his company,
as fixed base operator, mainly
handles fuel sales, light
ground support and a Hertz
rental franchise at the
Fernandina Beach Municipal
Airport. The city handles air-
craft storage and hangar space
and Island Aviation does full
aircraft repair and mainte-
McGill also has a small
hangar and an airplane, but
when he came hdre in 1998,
he said, he expected to build
hangars as well as sell fuel.
McGill said the lawsuit
began when the city blocked
his company from building T-
hangars by telling McGill
Aviation that it could not use
the land it was leasing from
the city. "The city was going to
maintain the monopoly on
(hangars)," he says.
"We were going to pay the
city a 'percentage on our T-
hangars," McGill said. "The
city would-have no investment
... (but) the city effectively
blocked us from building any
McGill says the city even-
tually made a move to evict

his company after a fuel-deliv-
ery truck spilled 25 gallons of
fuel onto the grass. That led to
the city's lawsuit against
McGill in 2004.
"They started nibbling
away at our leasehold and
eventually took 30 percent of
the land," McGill said. He also
said the city built a taxiway
that overlaps his leasehold.
"The city repeatedly took
land from us for several air-
port projects," McGill wrote
in an email. "Virtually all the
land taken by the city was des-
ignated paved aircraft parking
ramp which is needed in the
daily operation of the airport
and our business ... the city
admitted taking 30 percent of
our leasehold."
Bach says McGill Aviation
"was denied the full amount
of square footage because Ihe
legal description was incor-
rect," and they were "paying
rent on too much land."
Hence, the award of dam-
ages to McGill, which is essen-
tially a refund of overpaid rent
going back to the actual tak-
ingsand a reduction of future
rent by a rent-credit, he noted.

bull-headed," McGill said. "I

City marina: calmer seas ahead

"Recognizing that Westrec has been in
Fernandina Beach eight full months of the
2009-10 fiscal year and has missed some top
revenue producing months, our revenue
excluding grants and fuel sales lihas increased
22 percent over the previous year."
Citizens of Fernandina Beach, how unfortu-
nate it is that one individual can paint such a
disparaging picture of our city's marina, when
the outlook for the marina has never been bet-
ter. Our community has reason to be pleased
with the decision to hire Westrec, one of the
world's largest marina management compa-
nies, to manage an important community asset.
Westrec began managing our marina eight
months ago beginning in mid-January of 2010.
Since that time we have seen much cleaner
docks, barnacles routinely cleared from pil-
ings, an improved website and reservation sys-
tem (fhmarina.com), attention paid to past due
and current collections and improvement in
customer service. We have seen restrooms,
shower facilities and the boaters' lounge con-
sistently managed to create a clean, safe and
secure facility for our boaters. Westrec's gener-
ous donation of 100 amp pedestals located at
the main dock and charter docks lessens the
cost to our city to improve electrical service to
transient boaters. The harbormaster now has

S' an office with furniture donat-
ed by Westrec centrally locat-
ed within the facility to pro-
vide easy access and better
service to our boaters.
We have seen a nice retail
operation created at Westrec's
expense that we expect this
Steger year will generate over
$30,000 in revenue to the city.
We have seen more advertis-
ing and articles touting the close proximity of
our marina to our beautiful historic downtown.
These are great selling points to boaters, and
selling points that benefit our entire communi-
ty. In addition, Westrec is a good corporate citi-
zen. From sponsorship of Sounds on Centre to
participating in the Shrimp Festival parade,
Westrec has demonstrated strong support for
our community.
Here are even more positive results. Boat
nights have increased from 6,050 to 10,816 in
fiscal year 2009-10 resulting in a $134,395
increase in slip revenue over last year. Even
more positive news is the revenue margin for
fuel sales has increased by 2.71 percent over
the previous year resulting in significantly
higher fuel profits that total $263,201 for the fis-
cal year just ended (a significant revenue

The outlook for the marina has
never been better.

source omitted from the figures previously
reported in a Ncu's-Lcadcr Viewpoint on Oct.
And lastly, the dbd)l service will be greatly
reduced thanks to refinancing of the $5.2 mil-
lion marina debt from a interest rate of 3.77
percent to a rate of 2.41 percent. The result is a
$27,000 per year savings for the next 10 years
after which the db-h will be paid in full. This is
good news for our marina, and good news for
our citizens.
Recognizing Ihal Westrec has been in
Fernandina Beach eight full months of the
2009-10 fiscal year and has missed some top
revenue producing months, our revenue
excluding grants and fuel sales has increased
22 percent over the previous year. Not bad in
the midst of the great recession and not bad
considering it takes time for boaters up and
down the coast to learn that things are looking
up at the Fernandina Harbor Marina.
Throughout Westrec's eight-month tenure,
I have heard one citizen complaint and that

complaint was directed toward the city's deci-
sion to hire marina experts to manage our
marina. I have heard glowing comments from
business owners and their staff and from boat
operators who closely watched the Westrec
operation with a critical eye. I continue to hear
positive comments from the boaters who
appreciate the quality services provided by
Westrec's staff. Plus more good news for the
citizens of Fernandina Beach is that reserva-
tions for the upcoming months, one of our
peak seasons for transit boaters and one of our
highest revenue generating months, are very
We recognize that more work must be
done. Unaudited figures show the marina loss
at $276,006 in the past fiscal year. Without
Westrec's management skills, marketing skills
and quality staff, the loss might have been
much higher.
The current economic recession has spared
no one whether they own a yacht, commercial
vessel or family fishing boat. We are confident
our marina, like other businesses, will weather
the storm. By bringing a quality marina man-
agement company to operate our city's marina,
we are protecting the value of one of our city's
greatest assets.

Jazz Festival
' On behalf of the board of
directors of the Amelia Island
Jazz Festival, I would personal-
:ly like to thank everyone in the
:community who contributed to
.the success of the 2010 festival.
Without the hard work of

dozens of dedicated volunteers,
the generous support from so
many sponsors and downtown
businesses especially the
Tourist Development Council,
its Chairman Gil Langley and
the Nassau County Board of
Commissioners or the patron-
age of those who attended our

shows in record numbers, we
simply could not have present-
ed the festival.
Our goal for this year was
to broaden the schedule by pro-
moting events every day of fes-
tival week. We added new pro-
grams such as Jazz at the
Movies and Red, White &
Blues, both of which were well
attended and enjoyed, and our
dual headliners, Steve March
Torm6 and Ramsey Lewis, deliv-
ered exceptional concerts to
highly pleased audiences.
Torm6 and Lewis were so
impressed with their respective
crowd reactions, along with the
island's overall beauty, that they
each hope to return to perform
again at a future festival.
I can't say enough about the
enthusiastic support from
islanders as a whole. The
Amelia Island community is sec-
ond to none when it comes to
backing the arts, and we feel
very fortunate to be able to pres-
ent America's great original art
form, jazz, to such an apprecia-
tive population. Plans are
ahleady in the works for 2011

when we will continue building
the Amelia Island Jazz Festival
into one of the world's finest
musical events.
Again, our heartfelt thanks
to all. We'll see you next year

SBy the light of a harvest moon

It was dusk when we pushed away from the
marina. Our Catalina 22 sailboat, Paddy
West, slid along on the falling tide, the
western sky first orange, then burnished
bronze. The breeze freshened as we followed
the Amelia River past Old Town. The Pippi
Longstocking House stood tall and erect and
squinted at us like an old aunt as we slipped by
in the semi-darkness smelling of the marsh
and the sea. I cut the little six-horsepower
four-stroke outboard back to just barely above
idle speed and hoisted the mainsail. As it
filled, I felt Paddy West surge forward like a
horse wanting free rein.
I was tempted to cut the engine altogether
but my wife and I are sort of new to the sailing
life. We decided to be prudent and not risk
crossing the St. Marys and Cumberland
Sound in the darkness under sail alone with a
rapidly outgoing tide. When we reached the
St. Marys, it was dark. Fort Clinch, clad in its
armor of aged, weather worn bricks, watched
from its ramparts like a silent old soldier as we
drifted by. I went below and lowered the keel
for better purchase against the swift tide, cur-
rent and stiffening breeze and then we set a
course across the river toward Cumberland
Island, lying dark and exotic looking off our
My wife handed me a cracker smeared
with soft cheese and a chilled can of sparkling
water and we sat together in the light of a har-
vest moon, which turned the water into a vast
sheet of rippled silver. We listened to the water

rush beneath the hull and the
muffled gurgling of the wake
the quiet little outboard left
behind. The cooling north-
Seast breeze angled across the
bow and I kept a steady hand
on the tiller as the sail filled
even more and we heeled
slightly to port. Another sail-
boat approached us ghost-
CUPJOF like, its running lights dim
JOE and its mainsail and jib bil-
... lowed as it veered outboard
of us and headed up the
Joe Palmer channel toward the ocean.
We watched it until we could no longer see it.
"One of these nights, we'll do that," I told
my wife. "We'll put up the sails and go off-
shore and sail under cover of darkness."
She set our iPod on the cockpit seat and
turned it on. The Clancy Brothers sang
"Paddy West" and I sang along with them, not
sounding half bad, I think.
The moon was high overhead by the time
we reached Cumberland Island. I set a course
to carry us along the shoreline toward
Dungeness and Greyfield Inn, where there's a
quiet anchorage. Ahead of us, the Big Dipper
hung low and level in the north-northwestern
sky. Far above it, the smaller bowl of the Little
We skirted the shoreline avoiding the shal-
lows and shoals and listening to the sound of
crickets and other night animals as we slid by.

I ventured too close once and the keel
dragged the bottom.
"You need to be a little further out," my
wife said from the bow, aiming our big flash-
light at the shore. "The shoreline bends in
front of us here and you're too close."
I leaned into the companionway and lifted
the keel a few inches and felt it pull free of the
muck and then we were on our way again, a :
minor setback avoided. I took a deep breath,
recalling our first night time excursion down.
to St. Augustine on Labor Day weekend. I got.
us hard aground just south of the Shave
Bridge on a low tide and we had to wait a cou-
ple of hours before the incoming tide lifted us
and set us back on our way.
We passed the ranger station dock around
10 p.m. and dined on rotisserie chicken and
potato salad as we ebbed long toward
Greyfield, where I finally set the anchor
around 10:30. We chatted awhile and ate some
chilled grapes. My wife toasted our trip with
wine and I toasted it with sparkling apple
cider. A long row of other sailboats, their mast
lights'shining, rose and fell on their anchor
lines. Except for the slapping of the waves and
the chuffing of a curious dolphin that came
alongside to spy on us, all was silent.
Ceta, the Great Whale, swam above us.
Aldebaran, Taurus' bright orange eye,
watched over us as we drifted off to sleep bob-
bing far below on the dark water like a couple
of castaways.


Beach parking
During a recent visit to Savannah,
Ga., to see my 4-year-old grandson, I
happened to take him to the beach at
nearby Tybee Island. Paid beach park-
ing has been instituted there and vis-
itors are required to purchase parking
passes and display them in the wind-
shield of their cars. A number of
kiosks sell the passes at a rate of 50
cents per hour (cash or 'credit cards)
and the entire beach is patrolled by
meter maids who routinely give park-
ing tickets to those who do not dis-
play passes or whose passes have
While at the beach, I met a local
man who told me that the full-time
residents of Tybee (approximately
4,000 people, he told me) can pur-
chase an annual pass for $25, which
gives them year round parking privi-
leges. When I asked him if the charges
for parking kept tourists away, he
replied, "Of course, it helps keep peo-
ple away, and that's exactly what the
residents want here. We don't want to
grow any more, and charging for
beach parking helps keep our growth
down where we like it!"
Perhaps other beach towns have
experienced a similar situation when
they started charging for beach park-
ing. And our city commission should
carefully consider what has happened
in other cities when they institute
metered parking at their beaches.
Unless we want tourists to stay away,
we should defeat any proposal to
charge for parking here.

School clinic
I have seen nothing but negative
responses to the Nassau County
School Board's proposal to offer a clin-.
ic for school employees and their fam-
ilies as well as retirees covered by the
district's insurance plan. Before sup-
porting or rejecting this proposal,
there are some questions that need
to be addressed.
We have heard much about the ini-
tial cost and about ongoing operational
costs. These are necessary but not
sufficient considerations in evaluating
this proposal. How much, if any,
money would be saved on insurance
costs to the district? How long would
it take to recoup the initial investment?
Once the initial investment is
recouped, how much money would
be saved on an annual basis?
If there are no projected savings,
then of course this is a foolish idea. If,
on the other hand, the district could
expect significant savings on insur-
ance costs, the proposal should be
described as cost-effective. The
money saved could be put where most
people would like to see it spent, i.e.,
on the education of our children. To
reject the proposal without consider-
ation of-these important questions
would be shortsighted indeed.

Re: "Amendment 4 fictions," Oct.
Given the limited turnout for some
elections and the effectiveness of mis-
leading ads, a small minority can get
an amendment passed. It is not a good
idea to amend the State Constitution

with a simple 60 percent majority of
the voters in an election. This is a big
problem in California. We don't need
to repeat California's mistakes. Our
elected representatives to the state
legislature have to meet a two-thirds
majority to amend the Constitution.
They have more time and information
to make an intelligent decision on
whether or not to amend the
Constitution on a particular issue. If
you feel that your representative isn't
doing a good job, then follow my
deceased father-in-law's political wis-
dom, "When in doubt, vote them out."

Teach the children
About three weeks ago, two young
men (about 13 or 14) came into my
office wanting to find out about some
product. I spent some time with them
and gave them the two parts that they
were looking for. When I asked them
how they were going to pay for these
parts, they just looked at me. They
had no cash, no credit cards and no
check. I then asked if I could speak to
their mother or father. I called the
father at work and he said he would
get me the money the next day. I nor-
mally do not do business that way, but
the folks of Fernandina are generally
quite honest and find a way to pay for
something they purchase.
I tried to give the benefit of the
doubt to these two young boys who
really wanted to fix up their 4-wheeler
over the weekend (I am not open on
Saturday so I allowed them to take
the product on their father's promise
of payment. It is now four weeks later
and I have called several times to get
the money from the father. As of this
date, after several calls, he has yet to
attempt payment.
So did this father never intend to
pay me? Did the kids think this was
funny, that they just walk in and steal
from me? Is this what we are coming
to? Parents allow their children to
come into a business with no means of
payment, beg for a part and then know
that it won't be paid?
I can certainly live without the
money this father is one hell of an
example for his kid (and his friend). I
tried to do something nice for a young
member of our community and it will
never happen again. This father has
just removed all my desire to be pos-
itive about attempting to assist young
customers whose dads "will get me
the money."
I know from a business standpoint
it was a dumb thing to do, but I had
hoped I would never have to feel this
way about our young community
members. I know they are not all like
you, but as a small business owner, I
cannot exist on promises either. My
product is my livlihood. My goodwill
serves my soul. I hope your wonder-
ful example to your child serves you

FBMS coaches
I would like to thank a coach whom
I have the utmost respect for. My son
tried out for football last year having
never played before and really not all
that good at it. He knew he'd never


make it but went every day to practice,
gave 100 percent and made the teamf.
He played a few games this football
season, still not that great but muih
better than when he started thanks
to his coaches, Coaches Green, Scott,
Groves and Head Coach Camin
He has brought his self-esteem 1ev-
els up, his grades up and his respect
for others up 100 percent. I just can't
thank Coach Cam Harrison enough
for taking a risk on my son who knew
nothing and bringing him this far.
Thank you.

Moran Foundation
Most 17-year-olds worry about who
they'll go to the prom with or what
college they'll attend. For teens in fos-
ter care, age 17 is the time to start
worrying about where they'll live
when they turn 18 and age out of fos-
ter care. They worry about how they
can make it on their own and if they'll
be able to take care of themselves.
Thanks to a grant from the Jim
Moran Foundation, every 17-year-old
in foster care in Duval and Nassau
counties received specialized services
during the last 12 months to help them
prepare for transitioning out of foster
The grant enabled Family Support
Services of North Florida (FSS) .o
provide focused attention on the teens,
such as developing an individualized
transitional plan for each 17-year-old
which included employment and edu-
cational goals, living arrangements-,a
bank account with emergency funds,
a solid support system and trainingin
employment readiness and financial
The foster youths learned about
budgeting, money management, bank
accounts and how to balance a check-
book. They also learned job interview
skills, how to write a resum aind
proven techniques and tips for find-
ing a job.
In addition, FSS implemented-a
tutoring program to help the teeais
improve their reading and verbal skills
so they can be more successful in
All of this was made possible by
the Moran Foundation's grant. Foster
teens have been helped to prepare for
living on their own and to be as self-suf-
ficient and successful as possible.
Though they are facing many chal-
lenges, the teens are armed with skills
and knowledge and are filled with
encouragement, dreams and hope.'
FSS and the Jacksonville and
Nassau communities appreciate the
support and assistance made possible
by the Jim Moran Foundation. There
is no better use of funds than investifig
in the future of our youth. ?

free from love of money, and be content with
what we have." ( Hebrews 13.5) We are a
competitive people, and for many, this is not
always an easy thing to do, however, we
should always be aware that envy an( greed
have a tendency to consume and demoralize

with ourselves, we heromne pleased for the

FRIDAY, October 29.2010/'Ncws-Lcader


Eating, receiving help and fulfilling the law

There he sat. Johnny was
only 12 at the time, but the
rules were the rules; none
of the kids could leave the
table until all their food was eaten.
Though Johnny's dad believed in the
rule, this particular clay he realized
Johnny was stuck. It was almost an
hour before Johnny got the victory.
Interestingly, it came when his father
"How can I help him without
breaking the family rule?" the father
had said in his heart. And that's
when it hit him. The rule said you
couldn't leave the table until all your
food was gone. It didn't say who had
to eat it.
When the father finally sat down
beside Johnny. it was clear that
Johnny's frustration was getting the

best of him. As the
father gently
reached over and
took his plate,
Johnny raised his
head, surprised and
confused. At a time
when he thought'
his dad was ready
to scold him for not
PULPIT living up to the faim-
NOTES ily rule, his dad was
now eating the food
that was on his
Pastor plate.
Rob Goayee "What are you
doing dad?" Johnny
said as his father easily consumed
what hlie had been struggling so hard
"I saw that you were really stuck,"

the dad said as he finished the last
few bites.
"What about the rule?" Johnny
said. "Are we doing away with it?"
"No," the father said. "This time
around, I'm fulfilling it for you."
The impact on Johnny's life was
huge. Not only did he get up from
the table feeling free from the shame
that comes from breaking the rules
but, even more importantly, he
understood just how much his father
loved him. That love forever chang-
ed his life and made him one of the
most obedient sons ever.
This simple story illustrates what
God has done for us in the person of
Jesus Christ. Though the Ten Com-
mandments and the Law of Moses
are good and holy, and serve as
God's righteous standard, the fact of

the matter is, we are all stuck when it
comes to fulfilling them perfectly.
Thankfully, God has seen our
dilemma and has pulled up a chair
beside us no, not to condemn us
for our failures, but to fulfill the law
on our behalf. That's why God, in the
person of Jesus Christ, came to
Earth. As a man, He tasted for us
everything we could not swallow.
For those who believe and receive it,
there is freedom from shame as well
as liberty to get up and get on with
Such love is hard to ignore. Such
love changes us. Such love empow-
ers us to obey His laws that, ulti-
mately, He longs to write upon our
"Behold, the days come, says the
Lord, that I will make a new

covenant with tIe house of Israel,
and with the house of Judah: Not
according to the covenant that I
made with their fathers in the day
that I took them by the hand to bring
them out of the land of Egypt; which
my covenant they brake, although I
was an husband unto them, says the
Lord. But this shall be the covenant
that I will make with the house of
Israel; after those days, says the
Lord, I will put my law in their
inward parts, and write it in their
hearts; and will be their God, and
they shall be my people ... for I will
forgive their iniquity, and will
remember their sin no more."

New basketball, softball

coaches for YHS Hornets


Chris and Candy Hicken
are Well aware of the talent of
one of their new assistants at
Yulee High School. The
Hickens coached softball at
West Nassau when Hilliard's
Amanda Sweat was a pitcher
for the Lady Flashes.
"I remember it being a 15-
inning game," said Candy
Hicken, new head softball
coach at Yulee. "She pitched
all of them but three. She had
a whole lot of junk and kept
us off balance."
This spring the three will
be working together. Chris
Hicken, Sweat and Domi-
nique Cook are the assistants.
Sweat will be working with
the pitchers.
Chris Hicken has be'n
coaching softball for 13 years
and baseball another 14 and
the pair worked as a team for.
eight years at West Nassau.
Married for six years, the
couple have six daughters.
"I have a daughter teach-
ing kindergarten and a
daughter in kindergarten and
everything in between," Chris
Hicken said.
The duo took five teams to
state, collected 11 of 13 dis-
trict titles and made eight
region championship appear-
ances while at West Nassau.
"Never made it to the state
championship," Chris Hicken
said. "We lost one time in 18
innings. Every time we'd go
we would lose by one run ot;
two. But in 13 years, we never
failed to win 20 games."
They collectively have
more than 300 wins.
"We're just going to stick

He replaces Don Burton.
"We're thrilled," Ball said.
"It's a huge opportunity. I'm
really excited to get to work

coached before. I taught all
the boys, so coming over

ackwater fishermen will
have a perfect tide this
weekend for targeting red-
fish and flounder. Low tide
is scheduled to arrive at the mouth
of the Amelia River at 8:30 a.m.
Saturday. Look for redfish and floun-

blue crabs, shrimp and finger mullet
migrating from the once-flooded
marshes and small tidal creeks.
Crab pattern flies have been
working extremely well for both red-
fish and flounder during recent
.days. Present your fly up current of
a deep slough, allowing the fly to
drift along the bottom while keeping
a taut fly line.

If you are looking for a place to hunt this
fall, you still have a chance to get a recreation-
al use permit for the Nassau Wildlife
Management Area near Callahan. All users
must possess a Nassau recreational use per-
mit to hunt on this area.
Nassau WMA is a still-hunl-only area, but
hunters may useo bird dogs during the migrato-
ry bird and waterfowl hunting seasons.
For those willing to pay $3:85 to hunt the
area, Nassau WMA provides hunting opportu-
nities during eight months of the year:
Muzzleloading gun season runs from Oct. 30
through Nov. 7; general gun season is from
Nov. 13 through Jan. 9; small game is from
Jan. 10 through March -6: spring turkey season
runs from March 19 through April 24; and
trapping can be done from Jan. 10 through
March 1. To apply for a permit, go to
Recreational use permits are designed to
provide more revenue to landowners in the
WMA system. Money set aside by the FWC to
compensate 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 per-
mits. Fees collected from these permits sup-
plement the compensation for private
landowners, keeping th'ir lands open to public
Except for hunting, permit holders and
their spouses or" dependent children may par-
ticipate in other activities on designated
WMAs. Only permit holders and o(ne depend-
ent child (under age 1(i) may hulnt. If spouses


or more than one dependent child (under age
16) wish to hunt, they must purchase a recre-
ational use permit. Recreational use permits
also include a management area permit when
,.iiir;,i, public lands not in the recreational
use prog-am.
People may submit applications online at
www2.fl.wildlifelicense.com/start.php, or they
can take a completed worksheet to a tax col-
lector's office or any li-cense agent, and those
venues will submit the application.
Worksheets are available at MyFWC.com/
Hunting (click on "Limited Entry Hunts") and
at the FWC regional office in Lake City and
tax collectors' offices.
Quota hunt permits are not required on
WMAs within the recreational use program;
only recreational use permit holders may use
the area.

and gotten hit by a bus and
wouldn't have felt like life

When Buddy made his first
trip to Texas, Guy Clark heard
him singing one of his songs
under a tree at the Kerrville
Folk Festival and liked it. So
Guy went back to Nashville,
opened the door and said,
"Listen to this kid, he's good!"
A publishing deal and a U-

pay attention. In 1987, he was
a New Folk Award Winner at
Kerrville and he released his
first album, "On the Line."

WINE Continued from 1B
shop in the Publix shopping center.
And Jim von Dane, wine steward at
Harris Teeter, is upgrading the
selections at the Amelia City gro-
cery with greater emphasis on his
own tasting.
This is good news for local wine
drinkers, most of whom like to try
new wines. Only one out of four of
those surveyed said they prefer to
stay with their tried and true
favorites. The unscientific survey
was conducted in September with
members of the Amelia Island wine
club and others known to be regular
wine drinkers.
The big change in the wine pur-
veying dynamic here is the acquisi-
tion by Amelia Liquors of the assets
of the bankrupt Frugal Scott liquor
store at Sadler Road and 14th Street,
and the leasing of the former card
shop near Publix. With more than
2,000 square feet, Amelia Liquors
North, as the new shop is called, will
be able to offer a wider variety of
wines. And with the larger buying
capacity provided by the two-store
operation, better quantity discounts

will be obtained, with savings passed
on to the customer.
Owners Valerie and Jim Shibley
and Terry Jones have a greater
opportunity to work with boutique
wineries and distributors to bring to
Amelia Island some of the excellent
wines being produced around the
country by small wineries.
"We are looking for wines that
you can't get in a chain grocery
store, at a price that fits the local
market," Valerie Shibley explained.
Meanwhile, Jim von Dane is also
planning to work more with inde-
pendent distributors to give the
Harris Teeter wine selection a more
eclectic look. He is improving the
French wine selection and will con-
tinue to add new Spanish wines, an
area he has focused on in recent
"There will be more wines that I
have tasted and can recommend,"
von Dane said.
As we've written in the past, the
reason chain store wine selections
look boringly similar is that the
industry is dominated by a small
handful of very large and powerful
distributors who work solely with

'We are looking for wines
that you can't get in a
chain grocery store,
at a price that fits
the local market.'

the large, industrial wineries. It is
easier for a chain store wine buyer
in Charlotte or Lakeland or
Bentonville to deal with a few big
distributors to order large quantities
of a few wines, than to deal with
small operations that can't provide
the chain's quantity needs. But
when local wine purveyors can work
with small operations, the wine
drinker is the big winner.
Buying from independent or bou-
tique distributors and wineries will
also impact the price/quality ratio.
Because small vintners do not have
the advertising, marketing and dis-

tribution costs of the big industrial
wineries, quality wine prices are not
nearly as high as the big guys'.
And price does matter! In our
survey, when asked to rate the
degree to which certain factors
influence a decision to buy wine, the
greatest influence was price (an
average score of 3.7 on a 1-5 scale).
Brand, varietal and region came
next (with an average score 3-3.1).
(I got told off by those who par-
ticipated in the survey: the least
important factor in the decision to
buy wine is reviews and recommen-
Wine priced over $15 in a
liquor store is of little interest to
almost all (88 percent) of the survey
respondents. A third said they con-
sider wine priced below $12 a value
Buying wine in a restaurant, two-
thirds said $7 a glass is their limit,
with a third considering anything
under $9 a value drink. Buying wine
by the bottle, however, got a more
varied response. First, one in five
said they don't order bottles of wine
in restaurants. Those that do are
about evenly split, setting $30, $35

and $40 as their target price.
Half of the respondents said they
are spending more on wine com-
pared to five years ago, which could
reflect inflation or evolving tastes. A
third said they are spending the
It was interesting to me as a red
* wine drinker that 56 percent said
they preferred a white wine as an
aperitif, primarily the big three:
chardonnay, pinot grigio and sauvi-
gnon blanc.
When asked if they had a favorite
wine-producing region, 55 percent
have no preference. Of the others,
Bordeaux, especially Saint Emelion,
had an edge over Burgundy. Only
one respondent indicated a prefer-
ence for California without identify-
ing a region. Napa Valley Vintners
Association take note!
Now, what I really want to under-
stand is why these wine aficionados
don't pay attention to recommenda-
tions (I hope my editor hasn't read
this far).
