City may hire magistrate



to rule on code violations


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
An ordinance to have a special
magistrate, rather than the county
court, hear appeals of certain code
violations was approved unanimous-
ly at first reading by city commis-
sioners Nov. 2.
If approved a second time, the
ordinance will allow the city to hire a
local attorney to act as special mag-
istrate.
According to City Attorney Tammi
Bach, the current appeals process is
complicated and sometimes costs the
city more than it collects in lines when
cases end up in county court. While
certain violations are heard by the


Code Enforcement Appeals Board,
those that go to court costthe city $50
each, she noted.
The plan to hire a special magis-
trate to hear code violation appeals
came from the city police department,
Bach said, after the state attorney
and a county judge dismissed noise
violation cases before they went to
court.
Bach said a special magistrate
would handle appeals of such imme-
diate violations as an open container
on the beach, littering or dogs run-
ning loose. The code enforcement
board would still handle initial or
ongoing violations, such as an
unmowed lawn or junk vehicles.
Bach said a city magistrate would


not only save the city money by avoid-
ing county court, but would also save
the police department the inconven-
ience of sending officers to testify.
The county court, she said, would
also be freed from having to hear
such cases.
If the ordinance gets second
approval there will still have to be
several amendments to city code to
provide for a citation and appeals
process for different types of viola-
tions, said Bach. A request for pro-
posals would most likely be sentrout
to retired or retiring local attorneys
for the magistrate position, and city
commissioners would ultimately

Move city elections to November?


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City commissioners at their Nov.
2 :1n..liiL. discussed but did not make
any decisions about moving city elec-
tions to November, rather than hold-
ing them in Aprill
City Attorney Tammi Bach noted
that a charter amendment approved
by voters in April 2009 now allows
commissioners to set election dates
by ordinance.
Bach said that if commissioners do
nothing; elections will continue to be
held in April, as they have been for
many years.


Some have argued that April elec-
tions are inconvenient because they
are so close to the Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival, held the first week-
end in May, and that voter turnout
would be higher if city elections are
held along with national, state and
county elections.
According to City Clerk Mary
Mercer, moving elections to
November will also save city taxpay-
ers up to $15,000, because Nassau
County will absorb most of the costs.
Bach also noted that Hilliard and
Callahan had already moved their
elections from April.
Opponents of a November elec-


tion date say national and state elec-
tions will overshadow the importance
of city elections, and that voters will
already be saturated by nationaland
state politics.
Resident Dave Lott said at the
meeting he hoped city commissioners
would keep city elections in the
springtime.
"This is a great time to reflect on
November elections and what we've
had to endure over the past few
weeks," Lott said, referring to the
glut of political advertisements. "My
fear is that elections will get lost in all

World War II veteran
Paul Kayser couldn't
attend the ceremony
Friday at Mayport
Naval Station, but he said he was
glad of the recognition by
Congressman Ander Crenshaw.
'The guys who gave part of their
life and their time'to their country, I
think, should be recognized," he
said Tuesday.
The Fernandina Beach man was
among those honored by Crenshaw
at an annual ceremony before
Veterans Day, which is Thursday.
Kayser, a native of the Bronx,
N.Y., was drafted in 1944 at the age
of 18 at a time when the Marine
Corps was desperate for men.
"I was still in high school my
last year in high school. I finished
when I got out of the service," he
said. 'That was right after (the
Battle of) Tarawa. Half the Marine
Corps was gone. ... It was a slaugh-
ter."
Kayser spent two years in the
Marines, first in Okinawa, then in
China. While in Okinawa, he was
wounded twice in the course of 15
minutes, "once by the Japanese and
once by our own people friendly
fire. It was a phosphorus grenade. I

"I still smell the dead the god-

From Okinawa, Kayser went on
to help guard railroads during the
communist insurgency in China,
where he saw even more action.
"I got shot at more times in ,

Crenshaw honors


145 area veterans


JACKSONVILLE,
Congressman Ander Cren-
shaw formally honored 145
Fourth Congressional District
Veterans during his 9th annu-
al Special Veterans Recog-
nition Ceremony on Friday at
the Ocean Breeze Conference
Center at Naval Station
Mayport. Veterans who served
our nation between the years
1941 and 1979 received the
honor.
"One-hundred-forty-five
brave men and women from
26 communities receive spe-
cial recognition today in front
of friends, family, and com-
rades," said Crenshaw, a mem-
ber of the House
Appropriations Subcommittee
on Military Construction and
Veterans Affairs. "They
answered the call of duty from
World War II to Vietnam and
the years in between, but
many did not receive the
recognition that they so right-
ly deserved when they came
home."
"While all may not be here,
each and every one of them
have a story to tell about how
they protected our freedom,"
he said. "This ceremony is
about shining a light on that
service and formally thanking
them."
"This is my ninth annual
Special Veterans Recognition
Ceremony, and I never cease
to be humbled by dedication of
these servicemen and
women," said Crenshaw. "Let
us never forget that our
nation's greatness is drawn
from the blood and sacrifices
of honorable and courageous
men and women. I thank them
for their sacrifices in the face
of incredible danger and hard-
ship. My appreciation is front
and center today and always."
The 2010,ceremony recog-
nized the contributions of
those who served in the U.S.
Armed Forces, including the
Coast Guard, Merchant


Marines and National Guard,
from 1941 to 1979. Friday's
ceremony included a formal
and individual presentation of
the certificates by Crenshaw
and Navy Rear Admiral Tim
Alexander, a reading of Old
Glory, a 21-gun salute and the
playing of Taps.
Crenshaw has hosted nine
Special Veterans Recognition
Ceremonies since 2001, hon-
oring more than 2,000 local
veterans.

Marines.....I was in the com-
pany that went out looking
for them," he said. "They
finally turned them loose,
but we walked 50 miles in
two days looking for them.
Lotta bloody feet.
"I gained great respect
for the Chinese people,"
Kayser added. "They were
under the warlords, then
they were under the
Japanese. We went over
there and said, 'You're free,'
and they didn't know what to
do with it. They always had
someone pushing them
around. But their resilience
and their ability to hang on
under the worst conditions -
I don't think we as
Americans can appreciate
that."
After leaving the
Marines, Kayser realized his
injuries necessitated a
change of career plans.
"I thought the best thing
to do was to learn a trade -
but my hands were so
burned I couldn't be a
mechanic, so I turned to my
hobby, which was photogra-
phy," he said. "I spent 41
years in the photography
industry, the last 23 years
with Eastman Kodak. I was
one of the pioneers for photo
finishing in color."
Kayser also started a fam-
ily after coming home.
"I married my childhood
sweetheart and had two
daughters," he said. He and
his wife, Jane, have been
married for 59 years. "And I
would do it all over again."
In 1995, the couple
moved to Fernandina Beach,
where Paul volunteered for
several years with Habitat


for Humanity.
"I worked with Habitat
for a number of years and
built 23 houses," he said.
Kayser's life has been
focused around his family
and his civilian pursuits, but
he still remembers his lost
comrades.
"I'm involved in the
Marine Corps League too,"
he said. "The only reason I
do that is to honor the mem-
ory of the guys who died
over there so young, they
missed their whole lives."

Bach said a magistrate
would probably be paid about
$150 per hour. They would be a
licensed attorney in good stand-
ing with the Florida Bar
Association with a minimum of
five years of legal experience.
The city commission would
establish the term of office.
The special magistrate
would have the power to adopt
rules for hearings, subpoena
alleged violators and witness-
es, subpoena evidence, take tes-
timony under oath and enter
orders finding a violation or
non-violation. Hearings would
be open to the public.

have rejected explicit referen-
dums to move elections to
November."
"Voter turnout would be
increased," Lott wenton; "but I
believe in quality versus quan-
tity.... I think it's important to
have that focus." Lott said he
also feared local candidate
forums would be lost in the dis-
traction' of national and state
elections.
Resident Patricia Borns said
the notion of moving city elec-
tions to November was "sort of
mortifying," and that keeping
the elections in April would
help "keep the focus on
Fernandina Beach."
"I think it's a small price to
pay for what we enjoy," Borns
said.
"I do want to hear from a lot
of citizens on this issue," said
Mayor Susan Steger.

discharging air guns; entering
or exiting from a moving vehi-
cle: skateboarding in a prohib-
ited area: glass containers on

they would like to see a list

elections before making a deci-

"We want to keep in mind
that getting people out to the
polls is something we want,"
Filkoff said. "Everyone (voting)
today was quite well educated
on what they wanted to do."
Bach said commissioners
should decide soon whether to
move elections, as she would
need to get an ordinance in
place to change the dates by
January if elections are to be
in November next year. She
said she would bring the issue
back for discussion within the
next two commissioner meet-

Two-thirds of city voters
approved a ballot initiative Nov.

tries to bite the hand that feeds it


Fernandina Beach city offi-
cials went searching for a
reported source of honey -
but stumbled upon a bee's
nest.
In this case, the honey was
the tasty nectar of tax-like rev-
enues. The bee's nest consist-
ed of some 40 restaurant own-
ers who operate within thqe
city limits.
City officials set out two
months ago on a covert, sting-
like operation to audit th6
seating in local restaurants.
They ultimately intended to
collect $770,000 in additional
impact fees from restaurants
having more seats than
reported.
Impact fees are not taxes.
They are fees assessed for the
purported impact of a busi-
ness on local infrastructure.
The dubious premise behind


the audit
was that the
S additional
restaurant
seats would
burden the
city's
improved
water and
sewer sys-

The bigger issue is how
the audit was conducted in
an unannounced, underhand-
ed manner. And the fact that
city officials pursued onerous
fees for local restaurants dur-
ing a period of economic hard-


ship. Hefty fees that might
eventually cause restaurant
owners to lose their appetites
to operate here.
It started several months
ago when city officials were
reportedly alerted of seating
inconsistencies by a fellow
restaurant owner, who was not
identified. City officials then
visited city restaurants with-
out advance notice or disclos-
ing they were there.
In an apparent attempt to
keep their fingerprints off the
evidence, city officials quietly
forwarded the data to the
state department that licenses
restaurants. The Florida
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation
promptly sent notices to
restaurants with more seating
than was declared on their
licenses. However, the state

revealed on the notices that
they had been alerted to the
extra seats by city officials.
Hungering for advice,
restaurant owners contacted
the Amelia Island-Fernandina
Beach-Yulee Chamber of
Commerce about the confus-
ing notices. Chamber officials
immediately contacted city .
officials to arrange a meeting.
During the meeting, city
officials reportedly explained
and defended the initiative,
while the alarmed restaurant
owners choked on the details.
Heeding the complaints and
concerns, city officials report-
edly will defer or dismiss
many of the impact fees for
restaurant owners. Still, some
fees will be arbitrarily collect-


You have to wonder about
the timing and tactics
employed here. Heading into
the slower off-season, most
restaurant owners could hard-
ly swallow $20,000 or $30,000
in unforeseen fees (that have
a questionable intent and pur-.
pose).
This is another desperate
attempt by city officials to cre-
ate new revenue sources.
Rather than reduce expenses,
city officials have gone on the
offensive to increase tax and
fee revenues. It is similar to
their attempts to charge for
parking at city beaches, or to
assess pesky fines for code i
enforcement or noise viola-
tions.
The same mindset prevails
throughout the country.


Public officials at all levels are
seeking new and improved
modes of taxation, especially
against businesses.
However, the business sec-
tor is the goose that lays the
golden eggs. During one of
the worst economic times
most of us have experienced,
the goose has become frail
and weary and may struggle
to produce.
Fernandina Beach has an
impressive menu of local, pri-
vately owned restaurants.
These are a staple of the
downtown business district.
City officials should nurture
and foster these and other
business operations.
They should feed the gold-
en goose. Rather than suffo-
cate it with additional regula-
tions, taxes and fees.

Adams administrator of the year


Jim Adams, chief executive
officer of Family Support
Services of North Florida
(FSS), has been -named
Administrator of the Year by,
the Florida Coalition for
Children, a statewide associa-
tion that advocates for Florida's
abused and neglected children
and supports the agencies and
individuals who work on their
behalf.
Theaward recognizes excel-
lence in advancing the effec-
tives and relevance of an
agency's mission and programs
in meeting the needs of the chil-
dren, youth and families.
Adams has been at the
helm at FSS, the lead agency
for foster care, adoption, tran-
sitioning youth services and


family preser-
vation in
Duval and
Nassau coun-
ties, since
a '^ 2002. Under
his leader-
ship, FSS suc-
Adams cessfully initi-
ated foster
care redesign,
which has safely reduced the
number of children in care by
63 percent since December
2006 and has resulted in FSS
setting statewide records for
the number of adoptions com-
pleted more than 1,000 adopt-
ed in two years.
Adams has served more
than 10 years on the Nassau
County School board, chairing


it'twice. He is a resident of
Bryceville.
Adams believes foster chil-
dren deserve more than "room
and board." He created a Scuba
and Enrichment program for
select teens in foster care to
help them gain confidence,
develop responsibility, learn
about career opportunities and
earn scuba certifications. Also
under Adams' guidance, every
foster child in Jacksonville ages
4 and 5 is enrolled in the
Mayor's Book Club since 2006,
and FSS initiated the successful
"Sheriff's Reading Club" in
2008 for 4-, 5- and 6-year-olds in
Nassau County.
Most recently, Adams initi-
ated a partnership with
Northeast Florida State
Hospital and Florida Gateway
College to provide a Certified
Nursing Assistant program to
select young adults in

Real estate prospects uncertain

GAINESVILLE Uncer-
tainty persists in Florida's real
estate markets, aggravated by
the state's high jobless rate and
fears about the recent election,
a University of Florida survey

"While investment in real
estate continues to flow into
Florida, there is a tremendous
amount of apprehension in the
market due to government and
economic forces," said Tim-
othy Becker, director of UF's
Bergstrom Center for Real
Estate Studies, which issued
its quarterly survey last week.
The survey is the most
extensive of Florida profes-
sional real estate analysts and
investors conducted on an
ongoing basis. The total num-

rent survey is 266, who repre-
sent 13 urban regions of the
state and up to 15 property
types.
The state's high unemploy-
ment continues to limit real
estate growth, Becker said.
The joblessness rate reached
11.9 percent in September,
compared with 9.6 percent for
the.nation, he said.
-;Survey respondents indi-
cated they believe industry'
conditions will improve now
that the election is over and
people have a better idea of
what to expect from their polit-
ical leaders, Becker said. An


extensive amount of money
from real estate investment
trusts, pension funds and insur-
ance companies is competing
for the few quality properties
that are on the market, most of
which are apartments, he said.
"The apartment sector is
the stellar performer in
Florida's real estate market,"
he said. "That's a direct result
of what's happening on the res-
idential side with foreclosures;
people are moving from being
owners to being renters."
Apartment occupancies are
up, which is driving up rents to
levels some respondents
haven't seen in a long time, he
said.
In contrast, single-family
construction is suffering
because of restrictions on bank
financing and the expiration of
federal housing tax credits,
Becker said. "That, coupled
with the tremendous housing
inventory still left over from
foreclosures going through the
market, make it very difficult
for builders to be able to see
new houses," he said.
While the housing market
is struggling, conditions con-
tinue to improve slightly for
the commercial sector, Becker
said. "We're starting to see sta-
bilization across property types
in occupancy, with respondents
saying they feel a little better
about what rents are going to
look like in the near future."

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/JOHN JOSEPH CASCONE/FERNANDINA BEACH


As the

Health, safety and welb
fare three simple
words that define
the role of govern-
ment. Whether you are a
Democrat, Republican, Liber-
tarian, Independent or have
no party affiliation, it is easy to
agree that those three words
define what we seek from gov-
ernment.
The basics are clean water,
efficient waste management,
prompt and professional
emergency services and quali-
ty of life issues such as
schools, public facilities and
roads, bridges and other nec-
essary infrastructure. Over
and above that, the purpose of
government is debatable.
The leadership of Fernan-
dina Beach has forgotten
about those basic items and
no longer has the ability to see
the forest for the trees. The
grandeur of their vision for
our simple hometown has sur-
passed the basic needs of its
citizens: special overlooks at
the plaza in Old Town.
A river walk that requires
we forgo the true purpose of
having the water the ability
to access and use it, not just
admire it from afar.
The ability to traverse a

sidewalk side by side not in a
single file or needing to duck
because the limbs that have
overgrown it are so low you
could lose an eye.
The requirement that
neighbors help neighbors and
in tough times that means
everyone tightens their belts,
not get pay raises.
Our rank and file city
employees are a true blessing,
by and large, but in the eco-
nomic times we are suffering
a raise of any amount, a new
car or expansion of a budget
are not warranted. True lead-
ership has the ability to make
that understood. You may ask
how? True leaders know the
answer as instinctively as Ted
Williams knew a curveball
was approaching the plate.
You caf't lead from the inside
an office or boardroom! You
have to get out front, be seen,
be part of the community you
are supposed to lead. Put your
hands on the problems, get a
feel for the way things truly
are and devote your abilities
to solving them.
When is the last time one
of the city commissioners, city
manager or other official
came to you and asked about
the things going on in our lit-

air city
Soriginals, all allegedly signed
on the same day and all
reflecting no information
regarding the type of light or
pole to which it is attached -
evidently important because
that reflects the true cost to
the city of the light itself.
Without the knowledge of the
cost to the city of the individ-
ual lights that have been dark-
ened, how do we calculate the
overall costs? Simply, we can't!
Every light on Centre
Street remains on throughout
every night. Between Ash and
Alachua, the waterfront and
Eighth Street, just about
every light is on and I noticed
none that were bagged indi-
cating future removal. The
lights around City Hall burn
brightly through the night
though it is uninhabited and
there are no residences
adjoining the property. Why?
On my block there are
three lights one at the south
end in front of a second home
for someone that spends less
than three months per year
here; one over the Health
Department parking lot; and
the third in the middle of the
block in front of an elderly
man's home who lives alone
and across from a retired city
employee who supplements
her income by caring for an
invalid and she comes in late
at night by herself. Guess
which one the city chose to
bag for removal? Oh, and on
our block is a registered sex
offender that a city detective
informed all of our neighbors
about just a month ago.
Mr. (City Engineer Glenn)
Semansin came here from
somewhere else, is being paid
who knows what and is mak-
ing decisions about turning
off lights without any policies
in place and doesn't even
check the city's own records
for registered sex offenders.
That is not leadership by any
definition of the word!
I was gladdened that
another magazine picked our
little seaside hamlet as one of
the best in the nation.
Obviously the.leadership at
City Hall was also because it is
prominently featured on the


"official" website. Too bad
they didn't tell those who they
are inviting here we have only
one boat ramp and a city
administration that is doing
what it can to close that one.
"You can look at the water but
don't try to use it," is what the
magazine should have said.
Or "walking the sidewalks
along Centre Street and the
side streets that flow from it
requires a helmet, safety
glasses and thigh pads to pro-
tect yourself from danger."
Let's forget about making
Disney World on the coast so
all the visitors would love it
and come back with their
friends. Remember what
attracted them in the first
place.- it was a great little
town where people live and
work and not Key West north.
We had stores that sell some-
thing other than souvenir shot
glasses with seashells and
sand in the double bottom or a
lookout deck in an area of
town where very few ever visit
to see the setting sun.
Our tax dollars were used
for quality of life, not tacky
banners advertising this or
that celebration that has little
to do with the everyday life
the residents in these difficult
times are struggling to sur-
vive. It is time for us to experi-
ence real leadership and for
our officials, both elected and
hired, to either do the job or
Sget out of the way. We will not
survive the continued expen-
ditures for lawyers' fees to
fight losing lawsuits. Nor can
we afford the money we Wast-
ed to acquire unsecured title
opinions because the city
manager felt like it and was
within his discretion to author-
ize it. That would have paid
for more than a month of
streetlights. We need to get a
grip on reality. Times are
tough but we can get through
them with our dignity intact
by doing the sensible things
and not pursuing the dreams
of every "Johnny Come

After election,


Well, it's over a week now since the
disaster last Tuesday you know,
the election, and the wounds are
still fresh. After the political tsuna-
mi, a description repeated over and over again
by the chattering class, the talking heads, the
pundits, many things became more concrete,
at least in my mind, and some things began to
solidify. Here's a few:
There's no competitive party system in
Nassau County and many Republican voters
would vote for a squirrel if it had an (R)
behind its name, rather than a Democratic or
Independent candidate. OK, many Democratic
voters would do the same thing, but
Democratic voters happen to be outnumbered
in Nassau County by about 50,000 to 1 (don't
check that number, it's factually incorrect it
just seems correct).
Please, let's drop all the nonsense about
the Tea Party being an independent, non-parti-
san movement. It's just the Far Right of the
Republican Party dressed in new clothes -'and
there's nothing wrong with that. In fact, I
believe their ideology, their beliefs are an
essential part of an effective responsible
party system, as in the Democratic Party's
Far Left. Both parties, seeking.to occupy the
political center where most of the
electorate is are having difficult times decid-
ing exactly what to do with these important
elements of their base. So far, both elements
have been avoided like weird relatives at a fam-
ily reunion. No more. The Far Righters, partic-
Sularly, are demanding a seat at the table. Note

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Water gypsy'replies
I just read Mr. (Lynn) Williams'
response to my article on the marina
and I'm disappointed that he chose to
shoot the messenger (argument ad
hominem?) rather than explain the
economic reasoning behind the deci-
sion to turn. marina operations over
to Westrec ("Living in Fernandina on
$1.41 a day," Nov. 5).
I made no personal attacks in my
numerical analysis ("City marina num-
bers show a mess in the making," Oct.
20). Instead I thought I'd let the num-
bers define both the financial history
and the current state of the marina.
These numbers are not fiction. They
came directly from the city's office of
finance, and before I published I
checked with Ms. Patty Clifford, the
city's chief financial officer, to make
certain that I understood each column
of numbers. As a result I stand behind
these numbers and my conclusions. I
did not cherry-pick, nor did I indulge
in any form of data mining. My con-
clusions were based wholly on these
numbers, not on personalities or
stereotypes. : -
What does being a "water gypsy"
have to do with anything? Am I to
understand that because I live on and
cruise a sailboat, that anything I have
to say is therefore suspect? Mr.
Williams, and Mayor (Susan Steger) as
well ("City marina: calmer seas ahead,"
Oct. 29), should stick to the subject
and explain to the taxpayers how they
lost so much money. What's the grand
plan for the marina? How much is this
plan going to cost? And what is the
benefit to the community? These are
the important questions that members
of the waterfront committee, and
Mayor Steger as well, should be
answering.
Finally, I should also point out that
being kicked out of the captain's
lounge was not the reason behind my
viewpoint. I decided to write it after an
official for Westrec's southern region
gave me a stern warning. He said.
"You better watch what you say or you
can be sued."
When I worked for newspapers
years ago if somebody threatened.to
sue it generally meant they had some-
thing to hide; and in the case of
Westrec, and the city, that something
is an ongoing financial mess at the
city marina that is being passed onto
the taxpayers.

Economic development
This letter comes in response to a
letter that appeared in the Nov. 3 edi-
tion of your newspaper.
If the letter writer has access to
the Internet and "Googles" the words
"economic development Nassau
County," a link to our website will pop
up. There he will be able to find all
kinds of information about how
NCEDB targets and recruits new
industries to Nassau County. There's
also a "Contact Us" page that he can go
to for answers to any additional ques-
tions he might have.
The Nassau County Economic
Development Board was created in
1995 after a year-long study concluded
that the county needed to do more to
create new jobs and bring new capital
investment to the community. NCEDB
is a public/private partnership whose
operations are funded by our county
and local governments in cooperation
with private sector business investors.
Our most recent addition to the
business community was a company


called Science First, a family-owned
business that we recruited from
Buffalo, N.Y. When they decided to
move here from New York, Science
First committed to creating 20 new
jobs in Nassau County. Those jobs
paid more than 150 percent of the aver-
age wage here. Less than a year after
moving to Nassau, they have also pur-
chased two other businesses and have
raised the total of new jobs to 28. They
also spent more than $2 million to
build a 25,000-square-foot headquar-
ters building in Yulee.
Admittedly, the Great Recession
has slowed our ability to recruit new
businesses. A lot of them are waiting
on the sidelines to see more certainty
in the future direction of the economy.
In the meantime, NCEDB has been
helping existing businesses here keep
their doors open. We have some great
partners in our efforts and I'd like to
invite the letter writer to come out and
visit with us.

Reihemberingveterans
As we approach Veterans Day on
Thursday, Nov. 11, we all have to
remember the past veterans who gave
their lives for this country, the living,
veterans of this country and those who
are now serving the USA in faraway
countries around the world. Protecting
our freedom is not cheap all of those
who gave their lives so that we may live
in this country in the way Americans
know. We know that those veterans
who gave their lives did it for us.
With that in mind, I'd like to
express my gratitude to Congressman
Ander Crenshaw, who held a special
recognition for veterans living in this
area on Friday. I had the pleasure of
attending as a veteran for this cere-
mony held at the Mayport Naval Air
Station.
I really did not know what to expect
that morning, but upon arriving at the
Navy Base in Mayport I knew it was
going to be an experience I would
never forget. The room was filled with
hundreds of veterans and their fami-
lies. Many of them wore their Legion
or service cap, some with their military
uniform (I don't believe mine would fit
or even where it is today), some were
with results of their being wounded
from service, some of us were just old
but were able to walk up and receive
our recognition from Congressman
Crenshaw and two Navy
Commanders. The Navy personnel
who were gathered and helping with
this ceremony were an example of this
country's great nation. They showed
respect to those attending and made
me very proud to be an American.
If I forgot to mention, there were
141 veterans who walked up and indi-
vidually received a certificate from
Congressman Crenshaw and the Navy
Commanders. All the names and brief
information about each was read by a
Navy officer. The veterans included
the men, women of the armed forces,
nurses and others.
These also included one Medal of
Honor winner, the highest award this
country gives in time of war.
I was extremely humbled and
pleased to be part of this celebration,
proud if you would "To be an
American."
After he was introduced to the
group, the entire audience stood up to
recognize him and give him the
deserved applause. Thank you,
Congressman Ander Crenshaw.
SMy second thought regarding
Veterans Day was the downtown

parade sponsored by the American
Legion Post 54 on Saturday. There
were approximately 80 marching
groups who weathered the cold morn-
ing at noon and participated with var-
ious community and Veterans groups
for the parade.
Again, the pleasure and emotion
walking to the applause of those watch-
ing along the parade route was great
to see those who brought their families
and pets to remember this honor day
in Fernandina Beach was truly
American. I enjoyed walking and wav-
ing to the spectators along the route
and their many words of thanks to us
and the participating Veterans and
groups in the parade.
As this country proceeds, we
should never forget to stand up and
remember our veterans.
A passing remark about the many
local and national businesses who are
honoring the veterans on this day -
thank you!

A properwelcome
Hooray! It was great news to read
that improvements to 'Eighth Street
landscaping are being proposed (Nov.
5). Finally there is money from the
state to plant the center islands with a
fairly maintenance-free ground cover.
Let's hope that the DOT efforts will be
rewarded with something other than
weeds.
For a community whose vibrancy is
largely supported by tourism, I am
constantly amazed that the main artery
to the historic district is allowed to
look so unkempt weeds and knee-
high grass don't say "welcome." I
remember years ago how I applauded
the formation of a "Eighth Street
Beautification Committee." However,
that committee was very short lived.
The biggest improvement has been
Richard Germano's renovation of the
unsightly building which now houses
the new Amelia Dream Cars. And once
our visitors arrive on Centre Street,
Eileen Shannon Moore's "Flowering
Fernandina" baskets are very attrac-
tive. We need more efforts like those.
Bring on the tourists. They help
revitalize our charming downtown so
let's put out the welcome mat from
the very minute they drive onto the
Island. DOT is making avery positive
start Thanks!

Stupid pettricks
One of the wonderful things about
small-town America is that really stu-
pid little things can become big issues
and rate a page-one story in the local
newspaper. A perfect example is
whether dogs should be allowed at
the Fernandina Farmers Market ("No
pets at market stirs ire," Nov. 5).
Wow, this is really hot stuff! "The


character of Fernandina Beach is
being changed by the new policy of no
longer allowing dogs," as one 'com-
plainer wrote. Is banning dogs at the
Farmers Market really changing the
character of our town? Can dog atten-
dance at a once a week event really
change the character of our whole
community? Boy, that's really stupid.
The "Dog Party" people have also
said that banning dogs will reduce
attendance and sales at the Farmers
Market. From my experience at the
Farmers Market, the vast majority of
shoppers do not bring dogs, so a dog-
owner boycott would not cause a lot of
damage.
What the dog party people do not
acknowledge is that there are a lot of
people, myself included, who do not
like dogs. I do not like them sniffing
around food and plants that I might
buy (not to mention what else they
might do in the Farmers Market).
So on Saturday mornings if our
dog owners want to boycott the
Farmers Market, they can run their
dogs on the beach where I notice most
of them don't carry plastic bags to
pick up their animal's "stuff."
Bottom line: The Farmers Market
does not need dogs, so good riddance.
Take your dogs Saturday mornings
to dump on our "pristine" beaches.

The Waldoway
With the shortfall of revenue in
Fernandina Beach, maybe we should
adopt the practice so prevalent in
Waldo and Lawtey. A large percent-
age of their operating budget comes
from traffic fines.
I have noticed while driving down
Tarpon Avenue, South Fletcher and
Atlantic (in particular) that I have
someone right on my bumper just itch-
ing to pass. I tend to go the speed limit
(25 on Tarpon and 30-35 on South
Fletcher and Atlantic) and find that
people are trying to pass me (includ-
ing school buses) because I obey the
speed limit signs.
Why don't we use our police to
enforce the speed limit (no warnings)
to these speeders and then collect the
revenue to boost our city finances?
What good does it do to post the speed
limit and then just ignore it when it is
broken? Having a police cruiser sit on
the side of the road doesn't deter any-
one from exceeding the speed limit.
Wd actually have to do something
about it.

Streetlights
Cutting streetlights from 1,200
down to 400 doesn't seem like much
unless it's in front of your house. They
cut ours today. My issue with this, and
I cannot believe the police chief isn't
complaining or stepping up to the plate


for the residents of Fernandina Beach,
my question is with the streetlights
mostly being shut off in residential
neighborhoods, wouldn't this present
more of a problem for the police
department?
Their patrols must increase, this
hopefully means more than four or
five officers working at night, so if
they add any more then they're going
to burn more gas; more patrols, more
gas, more pay what will that save?
The city manager is putting lives in
danger Many elderly folks that live
here in Fernandina Beach are going to
be scared to get out of their cars after
church when they get home to their
very dark neighborhood. I hope and
pray that no one gets mugged or hurt
in any other way; not sure the city can
save enough money to cover the law-
suits.
My thing is leave them on until
January, start a program that might
benefit the city residents; call it Adopt-
a-Light program where each neigh-
borhood might.join together and pay
a certain amount per month together.
I'm sure the poles have numbers on
them; work with the community
instead of putting terror in their eyes
like you're doing now. It's what you
were put in office for, to work with the
residents that voted you in. This is not
working with the residents of
Fernandina Beach.
If you do not do this I will do my
best to put each and every one of you
that voted on this out of office and get
someone else in there that cares about
the residents of Fernandina Beach.
Russell Fullwood

Community'gem'
I am a part-time resident of Fernan-
dina Beach. Two years ago I received
a diagnosis of some serious orthope-
dic problems. Until that time I had
enjoyed a very active lifestyle and I
didn't know how I could maintain my
activity level under the new circum-
stances. After hip replacement sur-
gery I enrolled in the water aerobics
classes at the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center. I credit this pro-
gram with getting me back on my feet
and back to my active lifestyle.
The quality of instruction and pro-
fessionalism of all people involved -
lifeguards, instructors, center staff- is
remarkable. In addition the other par-
ticipants are compassionate and
encouraging individuals they make
it easy to show up in January when it
is 42 degrees outside.
I would like to commend the city
for maintaining this facility and offer-
ing these programs. There are many
different programs lap swimming,
swimming classes, etc. I would encour-
age everyone to try out a program at
the community center. It is a gem that
should be appreciated by all.

There's a treasure on
Amelia Island that I'll bet
many of you have never taken
advantage of. It's at the edge
of Fort Clinch State Park the
fishing pier. And no, you don't
have to be a fisher person to
enjoy it.
For one thing, the pier is a
nice smooth flat surface, very
easy to walk on, even for
those with difficulties, and a
wheel chair can easily make
the distance too. Over the
years I've been visiting this
pier I've encountered many
people, old, young, mothers
pushing baby strollers, who
u.se a walk down the half-mile
pier and back to get a bit of
exercise. There are even
strategically placed benches
to sit on when you just want a
break to enjoy the ambiance.
It's not exercise you really
notice though, at least I don't.
What I notice is the sea.
All around you from the
vantage of the pier, the ocean
is present. At different times
of tides and seasons, waves
crash along the giant rock jet-
ties that protect it on one side.
On the other side is an open
vista of the Cumberland
Channel, a waterway to the
Atlantic full of boat traffic
ranging from submarines and
their entourages to shrimp
boats, to large container ships
and small fishing boats. At
various times all can be seen
passing by from the perch of
the pier.
The wildlife viewing from
the pier is exceptional too.
Dolphins often feed in the
areas around the pier, and I've
been lucky enough to see
manatees, manta rays and sea
turtles from this perch as well.
The seasonal changes


bring their
own seasonal
sightings,
-_ especially
where birds
are con-
cerned. In
winter black
S skimmers
huddle and
tWILD relax on the
WAYS beach
beyond the
jetties, visi-
Pat ble fr-om the
Foster-Turley pier, but
undisturbed
by your presence. The rocks
of the jetties themselves have
a seasonal cast of bird charac-
ters that use them for refuge
from high water, the ruddy
turnstones and sandpipers
and gulls of many types.
On a early fall walk down
the pier at daybreak all of the
charms of this under used
Amelia Island asset were
brought home to me once
again. As I walked down the
pier the sun was rising at the
end of the pier, a glowing
orange in a lightening sky,
highlighting the massive jetty
rocks and the fishermen
already situated for their own
morning recreation.
On the railing along the
pier I noticed an unusual
sight, a mass of leftovers and
feathers from a seagull that
had been partially consumed
there at the spot. I pondered
whether an osprey could or
would take a seagull, but I've
not heard of this behavior in
these fish-eating predators. So
it must have been an owl or
hawk that flew out to the pier
to sit and consume its meal
here, far away from its usual
wooded home.


A bit further down the pier
I encountered the fishermen,
and, for once'there was lots of
activity to report. As I
watched, a woman caught a
flounder and her fishing com-
panion rushed in with a net on
a rope to help haul it up. It
was a keeper, I was told, their
first catch of the day. A bit fur-
ther down an unrelated fisher-
man noticed the excitement
and, I'm sure it added more
optimism fo his own fishing
efforts.
It was time for me to leave
the pier and continue on with
my morning hike. As I walked
back down the pier I was guid-
ed by a group of ruddy turn-
stones, walking down the pier
ahead of me. They flew up to
the railing where the gull
entrails lay, and stood near it,
and I wonder if they, too, lxn-
dered the source of this dis-
turbing scene.
At the rest station at the
start of the pier I refreshed
myself with a cool drink from
the chilled water fountain and
continued on down the beach
to enjoy the rest of the morn-
ing all to myself, the pier and
all its activities fading into the
background once again.
You too can visit the Fort
Clinch Fishing Pier, even with-
out a fishing rod. Just for the
-price of admission to the state
park, a one-day pass or a year-
long permit, it is there for you,
too. Come on out and enjoy it.
And bring your camera. You
never know what you will run
into too if you take the oppor-
tunity to look.

gist on Amelia Island. She wel-
comes your nature questions

WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 10.2010 NEWS News-Leader


POLICE REPORT


This was written by Jason
Yurgartis of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, the city of Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach
Police Department at 277-7342
or the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office anonymously by calling
225-0147 in Yulee and
Fernandina Beach or 879-2136
in Callahan, Hilliard and
Bryceville. The "We Tip" pro-
gram 1-800-78CRIME also
allows callers to leave anony-
mous tips.
Gun battle
City police are looking for
two suspects who reportedly
hit a man twice in the head with
a handgun while allegedly try-
ing to rob him Friday after-
noon.
The victim, who was bleed-
ing "fairly heavily" from a lac-
eration on the bridge of his
nose, reportedly drove himself
to the police station and told
authorities two men threatened
to kill him with a revolver at a
home on the 400 block of South
13th Terrace, police said.


He said the men told him
they would kill him if he didn't
give them money and he was
hit across the face and in the
back of the head with a silver
revolver as they fought
throughout the house, accord-
ing to police.
The victim said the gun
went off in the living room dur-
ing the struggle, but no one
was hit, police said.
The two men allegedly
approached the victim while he
waited for his friend, who rents
the home, to return from work,
police said. While walking from
his truck to grab a pack of cig-
arettes, the victim said two men
were talking to acquaintances
in the garage and one asked if
he had any marijuana. He said
no and entered the home,
police said. Once inside, the
men appeared behind him, said
"give me your money or we will
kill you," and the altercation
began, police said.
The victim eventually
escaped and, after he saw the
men leave in a blue older model
Ford Taurus, he drove to the
police station.
The suspects were
described as "two black males,
one wearing a black hoodie, the
other wearing a red and white
hoodie."

Jacksonville allegedly ran a stop
sign, then'stopped and ran into
the home where the robbery
took place, police said.
Manning said he knew the
officer was trying to stop him,
but he "had to reach (the
home) to prove to officers he
was not involved in the sus-
pected robbery," police said.
Manning is being held on
$17,504 bond at the Nassau
County Jail.
The investigation is ongo-
ing, police said.
Insurance arrest
A Yulee woman was arrest-
ed Friday on a charges of fil-
ing a fraudulent insurance claim
and a false police report after
she allegedly incriminated her-
self during a phone call moni-
tored by sheriff's office detec-
tives.

86079 Caesars Ave., listed in
her arrest report as a disabled

$17,000 worth of property was
stolen from her residence in
mid-July, police said.
Morris alleged that her ex-
boyfriend stole two flat screen
televisions, three laptop com-
puters, a china set, a Blu-ray
player, jewelry and $500 cash
from her home July 15 while
she was a patient at Baptist
Medical Center Nassau, police
said.
Authorities listened in on a
phone call between Morris and
her ex-boyfriend, who report-
edly said he had never seen the
china or the televisions, to
which Morris replied, "Shhhh,"
then stated she had used the
scheme for 30 years and "if you
ever open your mouth, I'll kill
you," police said.
Morris allegedly told the ex-
boyfriend how much money
she stood to make from the
claim and "how they could split
it if he keeps quiet and gives
law enforcement an alibi,"
police said.
In a voicemail following the
initial call Morris allegedly told
him, "You can't trust anybody,
they'll know it's a fraud and
we'll go to jail, so it's just you
'and me who know what's going
on," police said.
Sewage dumped
A sheriff's office deputy dis-
covered raw sewage dumped
in an undeveloped area of the
Plummer Creek subdivision
Saturday.
He reported that someone
appeared to have opened a
valve on a truck, drove it about
three-tenths of a mile dumping
the sewage water and toilet
paper debris on the ground,
then reentered the paved road
and left the subdivision.
Fresh tire tracks possibly
from a dually-type truck and
shoe prints led the deputy to
the tree line in the cul-de-sac
on Purple Martin Drive where
he discovered the waste, police
said.
The deputy photographed
the shoeprints and tire tracks,
but the case is pending further
investigation.
Truck stolen
An SUV was reported stolen
from the yard of a home on the


32000 block of Sunny Parke
Drive Nov. 4.
The owner of the dark green
2004 Dodge Durango report-
edly said the vehicle was
unlocked and she may have left
the ignition key inside, police
said.
The vehicle is thought to
have been stolen between 9
p.m. Nov. 3 and 7 a.m. Nov.. 4,
police said. A canvass of the
area proved fruitless, police
said, and the case is pending
further investigation.

Yule' rolled to 7-2 and 5-1 in
the district with Friday's 3:8-6
victory over host Fernandina
leach.
"We're county clhanlps and
that was one of o1ur five tram
goals for the season," said
Bobby Ramsay, head football
coach at Yulee Iigh School.

we thought they would. We
withstood their initial emotion
and played our game.
defensee I thought, 1- i1ii
stel pp'ed up. Their running back
had over 200 yards the week
before. (Quarterback) Conner
Petty keeps playing better and
better each week, which is
huge for us."
Yulee took advantage of the
first of three Pirate turnovers
early in the first quarter. (On
the second play from scrim-
mage after a Pirate fumble,
Yulee sophomore Derrick
"Shocka". Henry dashed 52
yards for his first of three
touchdowns on the night.
Ashton Morlote kicked the
PAT to give Yulee a 7-0 lead
with 7:58 left in the first period.
D)ejuan Ilightower inter-
cepted a pass two minutes later
and, with seven seconds left in
the first quarter, Yulee extend-
ed its lead to 10-0 with a 26-
yard field goal by Morlote.
The FBHS Pirates answered
early in the second quarter.
Sophomore quarterback Cole
Willis capped a 45-yard drive
with a one-yard plunge into the
end zone with 9:20 left. The
PAT failed. It was the Pirates'
lone trip into the end zone.
FBHS trailed 10-6.
The Hornets converted
another Pirate fumble into a
touchdown in the second quar-
ter. Petty darted 42 yards to put
the Hornets on the Pirate 33-
yard line. Henry got Yulee to
the four- and then two-yard line
before punching it in with 3:02
left in the first half. Morlote's
kick put Yulee ahead 17-6.
With less than two minutes
in the first half, Petty faked a
handoff and scored on a 60-
yard keeper. Morlote's PAT
attempt was good and Yulee
pushed its lead to 24-6 just
before halftime.
Henry and Petty both
scored TI's in the second half
Henry ended with 223 yards
and three touchdowns, bring-
ing his season total to 30. Petty
rushed 11 times for 99 yards
with a pair of scores. Kelvin
Rainey carried the ball twice
for 32 yards.
Petty completed seven of 14
passes for 81 yards with Rainey
reeling in five for 101 yards.
Gunnar Cox led Yulee's
defense with 11 tackles. Rainey
had seven and a forced fumble.
Iightower, Zack Camp and
John Hall all had interceptions
for the Hornets, Derrick Peter-
son had a pair of fumble recov-
eries and Keith White recorded
seven tackles.
Yulee closes out the regu-
lar season Friday at home with
Paxon. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. and
the seniors will be recognized
before kickoff.
"Paxon has a good passing
offense and speed at the skill
positions," Ramsay said. "We
need to continue to build
momentum going into the post-
season."

first playoff appearance Nov.

Pierce clinches blitz title


Those of us from the North still expected
to find four seasons when we moved to
Amelia Island, but this year we went from
winter to summer and November began like
we were going from summer back to winter,
skipping the spring and autumn seasons.
There wai a chilling breeze for the 46
players taking part in the Wednesday blitz
last week, but the scoring was better than
what it has been. Jim Pierce, newly returned
from the North, had a round of 77, good for
plus 11 points and individual honors. He bare-
ly edged out another recent returnee,
Freelon Pate, who had an 83 and plus 10
points. Tommy Shave, who shot a five-under-
par (also five under his age) 68, had to settle
for third place at plus 8.
With Pierce (plus 11) and Shave (plus 8)
on the same five-man team, they survived the
minus 6 of Sammy Alvarez (83), Michael
Kaufman (93, minus 2) and Jody Greene (83,
minus 1) to finish in a tie at'plus 10 with the
four-man team of Tom Roberts (even-par 73,
plus 7), Hydie Peterson (77, plus 6), Steve
Johnson (79, plus 2), which also overcame a
minus 5 by Dan Tucker (104).
Third place at plus 9 went to Bob Dorsey
(76, plus 6), Jim Raffone (85, plus 4), Larry
Hutchison (87, even) and Paul Hensler (95,
minus 1). With Pate (plus 10) receiving no
help from his teammates, Jack Harrison (91,
even), Wayne Mortenson (99, even) and Don
Cheshire (89, minus 2), the team managed to
hang on to take fourth place at plus 8.
With a number of the regulars on a golfing
junket to South Florida, Friday saw an even
chillier and windier day for the small turnout
of 28 players taking part in the blitz. Paul
Hensler had a round of 87 and plus 7 points to
win individual honors, but did not make it
onto a winning team. Second place went to
Lew Akins (87, plus 5). There was a three-
way tie for third at plus 4 between Jim
Edwards (96), Bob Riley (82) and Rich
Vredenburgh (84, but not on a winning team).
The smaller turnout resulted in the play-
ers being divided into three-man teams.
Headed by Riley (plus 4) and no minuses, the
team that included Larry Luett (79, plus 2)
and Freelon Pate (92, even) finished in first
place at plus 6.
Bob Dorsey (79, plus 2), Roger Oliver (82,
minus 1) and Dick Peterson (100, plus 3)
came in second at plus 4. Edwards (plus 4)
got some help from Tom Forrestal (101, plus
1) while Charles Helenbrook had a 95 and
minus 3 as the team finished third at plus 2.
Fourth place went to a team that came in
rriinus 1 as the plus 5 of Akins was offset by.
the minus 5 of Wayne Mortenson (105) while
Larry Hutchison was minus 1 with a score of
88.

'd- 1 One of those shots that we do not
get the opportunity to practice very
much, but comes in handy at times

shot is a complete feel shot, so
there are a few tricks to follow. The
first step is to make sure that your
grip pressure is soft and your hands stay quiet.
You want to keep your grip pressure constant
throughout the entire stroke. Your best course of
action is to make a long, lazy swing with as much
wristcock as you can get on your backswing. You
need to make your stance much wider than what
you are used to and open the clubface up dra-
matically to get the ball in the air immediately.
The final point is to play the ball off of your left
instep with almost all of yqur weight being placed
on your right foot.

OUTDOORS


WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10. 2010/NEWS-LEADER


Stubbs


greeted 26 teams
during the annual
Nassau Sport
Fishing Association Trout
Tournament Saturday morn-
ing. Air temperatures dipped
down into the mid 30s with
winds blowing 15-20 knots
from the
Northeast
and that
made for
chilly fishing
a. conditions.
Trout tour-
nament com-
petitors
looked more
OUTDOORS like competi-
tors in an ice
fishing-
Teryl across rodeo than a
deep south
trout tournament.
After all the fish were
weighed in at the Tiger Point
Marina, Jimmy Stubb's 5.02-
pound "Gator" sea trout
topped all competitors in the
largest sea trout category.
Stubbs was fishing with'
George Smith and daughter
Ella Smith.
"We really hadn't caught a
lot of fish till the very end,"
Stubbs said. "I predicted I
would catch the winning trout
at the very end of the .day.
Casting a minnow-type jig and
plastic lure combo into one of
my favorite big trout holes, I
felt a solid strike and reeled
in the winning trout.".
SAs predicted, Stubbs did
top all competitors in the
largest trout category with
his 5.02-pound sea trout. Jay
Stein weighed in the second
largest sea trout at 3.80
pounds. Jacksonville's Larry
Finch captured third place
largest sea trout with a two-
pound sea trout.
Last year's slam winners,
Donald Fagen, Christopher
Parker and Billy Rowland,
repeated this year with an
impressive catch weighing
12.98 pounds. Fishermen
could weigh in one flounder,
one redfish and one sea trout
in the slam category.
"That big five-pound floun-
der really helped us win the
slam," Fagen said. "We
enjoyed a nice flounder bite,
but we could have done a lot
better with our sea trout We
just could not catch that big
sea trout that we fished hard
for."
As it turned out, Fagen's
team win was very slim as the
second-place team weighed in
a 12.94-pound slam.
"I thought we had the
slam won until Fagen's team
weighed in," Jay Stein said.
"It was close, too close."
Harlan Pennington took
top honors in the three-trout
aggregate category with 7.96
pounds. Finch captured sec-
ond-place honors with 6.12
pounds and Rocky Davis took
third place with 5.32 pounds.
Sally Johnson took top
honors in the lady angler divi-
sion with her big trout weigh-
ing 2.42 pounds. Meri Regan
weighed in a 1.58-pound sea
trout for second place.
Julia Lacoss had to ride on
her father's back to Uncle
Allen Mills' boat to weigh in
her first-place sea trout.
Terry David Lacoss mis-
judged the tides and ran high
and dry on a sandbar, where
his crew, including wife April,
son Jace and daughter Julia,
were all rescued by Mills.
Terry David Lacoss had guid-
ed his family to a nice catch of
redfish to seven pounds and
Julia's winning sea trout that
eventually weighed 2.36
pounds before landing high

"I really misjudged the
tide as we took a shortcut to
one of my favorite flounder
holes," Terry David Lacoss
said. "I let the redfish go after
spending three hours on that
bar."

gory were Julia Lacoss, first,

Huntthe Nassau Wldlife
ManagementAreanearCallahan
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 Manage-
ment Area near Callahan. All users must pos-
sess a Nassau recreational use permit 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 sea-
sons. For those willing to pay $385 to hunt the
area, Nassau WMA provides hunting opportu-
nities during eight months of the year.
The general gun season is from Nov. 13
through Jan. 9, 2011; small game is from Jan.
10 through March 6, 2011; spring turkey sea-
son runs from March 19 through April 24,
2011; and trapping can be done from Jan. 10
through March 1, 2011. To apply for a permit,
visit MyFWC.com.
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 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 permit 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 recre-
ational use permit. Recreational use permits
also include a management 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 pro-
gram areas. Once permits are issued, they can
be renewed annually for two additional years,
essentially making them a three-year permit.
People may submit applications online at
https://www2.fl.wildlifelicense.
com/start.php, or they can take a completed
worksheet to a tax collector's office or any
license 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.

SPECIAL PHOTS
Athlete Josh Babcock and coach Matt Bellar of the inaugural Nassau County SpeciE
Olympics swim team.





First SO swim team in Nassau


For more than four decades, Special
Olympics has been bringing one message to
the world: people with intellectual disabilities
can and will succeed if given the opportunity.
Nassau County Special Olympics has been
running many sports for individuals with dis-
abilities for many years, including track and
field and bowling, but the county has never
been able to get a swimming program start-
ed.
The Mcarthur Family YMCA in Fernan-
dina Beach runs a program called Challen-
ger Sports for individuals with intellectual
disabilities. This year-round program
includes volleyball, basketball and swimming.
Matt Bellar and program director Tom
Christenson started working the Special
Olympics on teaming up to have the first
Special Olympics swim team in Nassau
SCounty.
The YMCA hosted the inaugural county
meet in July with 13 athletes competing. The
athletes practiced one to two times a week at
the pool. Of the 13 who swam in the meet,
five advanced to the area games at the
University of North Florida. All of the swim-
mers placed in the top three in their events
with four of the athletes placing first in their
events. Josh Babcock placed first in the 25-
meter freestyle and backstroke. Kristopher
Mitchell placed first in the 50-meter back-

Mitchell finisMd
fourth in the 50-meter backstroke with rime
of 46.20, which was a 12-second drop frm
his time in the county- meet. Babcock fished
seventh in the 25-meter backstroke witia
time of 27.94 and seventhin the freestyt
with a time of 20.51..He dropped nine sc-
onds off of his backstroke and seven seconds
off his freestyle from the county meet.
"I couldn't be more proud of this team.
They worked hard and it showed in thetime
they dropped in each meet," Bellar saic
'These athletes have set the bar high i the
first year, but the goal for next year is t have
over 30 athletes swimming for the tean."

The Big Guy and I made the
move. It was time to downsize. Like
so many we found the decision, how-
ever difficult, was the easy part. Our
timing was not the best, but patience
won out. The reality of aging and the
challenge of stairs convinced us it
was time to settle into a smaller one-
floor domicile.
The big move was not only a
physical move, but also a psychologi-
cal move. Time to rid ourselves of so
much stuff and create a simpler, less
cluttered life. Just the basics, we
promised each other. Now what
could be considered a "basic" was
not always unanimous. Like so many
people in the same situation, we had
to face some thumbs up and down
decisions on a daily basis for many
weeks. We were able to sell some

8 C'S BIG DOG RESCUE


Ava is a beautiful 2 1/2-
year-old boxer. This beautiful
girl was abandoned on the
end of her chain. She was left
for dead with no food, no
water and no shelter. Her pre-
vious owners moved and left
her behind. Luckily for Ava
her "angel" rescued her. Ava
had a very large benign tumor
on her neck that was removed
when she was spayed.
Everything is new to Ava
since her entire life was spent
on the end of a chain having
puppies. She loves to run
around and explore. Ava is a
very affectionate girl that
loves attention. She is house
trained and she is good with
cats. She would do best in a
home with children over the
age of 5 due to her boundless
energy. If you would like more
information on Ava please

RAIN


Hello, my name is Roman,
aka Eminem. I live here at.
RAIN with many of my
friends. They take really good
care of me, but I would love to
have a home and person to
fuss over just me: I do get
along with others, but I am
very active and playful. I am
about one year old, with a
medium frame. I love food,
crinkle balls and soft beds to
lie on. My hobbies are teasing
the dogs from the ledge on
the porch and batting the
occasional moth that flies
around the porch light at


night. If you would like to
adopt me, please call (904)
879-5861 or visit rainhumane-
spca.org.

and enjoying some "lap time"
with his foster mom until his
forever home is found.
