A man being held in New Jersey may be extradited to

disappearance of a Yulee man in October. Family and

The state of Florida has asked thatJames Perry Turnage
Jr., who is being held by New Jersey authorities in con-
nection with the Oct. 8 disappearance of Westfall, be
brought back to Nassau County to face local charges.
Turnage, 44, has invoked his right to
counsel and is not talking to police,
according to State Attorney Wesley
White, director of the Nassau County
State Attorney's Office, but he faces a
local charge for the theft of Westfall's
2003 Buick LeSabre.
Turnage was arrested Oct. 14 in
Vineland, N.J., by two. FBI agents who
spotted him in Westfall's car. They had Westfall
been alerted after authorities traced
Turnage to the area through his use of a
cell phone. White said the car appears to have "some foren-
sic value"' and the sheriff's office is following leads.
Authorities have yet to locate Westfall, who was last seen
Oct. 8 at his son's Yulee High School football game. The
next dlay his family found a pool of blood in his home and
called police. The sheriff's office announced Oct. 10 it was
looking for Turnage.
Westfall's family and friends have sent out fliers to
media outlets up and down the East Coast and have
searched for Westfall's remains along the path Turnage is
believed to have driven from Florida to '-,iiih C;n ilirit.

Schools meet

class size

The Nassau County School District has met
the Florida Department of Education's require-
gients for class size in the 2010-11 school.year
avoiding possible financial penalties from the
Florida mandates maximums of 18 stud-
ents per class in grades K-3, 22 per class in
grades 4-8 and 25 per class in grades 9-12. At
present, 33 Florida counties exceed maxi-
Uium class sizes in at least one of those cate-
gories including Duval, which is about 16 per-
cent over the cap and faces millions of dollars in
S Districts that don't meet the class size
requirements could see the state with-
fiold some education funds, according to a
Nov. 30 memo from the Department of
- Nassau County School District Director of
Administrative Services Sharyl Wood said the
county has always been in compliance but get-
ting there was no easy task.
"It's a difficult job to be in compliance, in
that you have to have enough teachers but then
you don't want to have too many, so we're not
spending money when we don't need to," she
', "Once the schools make their schedules and
assign all their students, we have to go back
and review those schedules numerous
times and make adjustments.... It gets a little dif-
ficult, but we do what we have to do. Nassau
County has, in all grades, 3,363 classes that
have to be in compliance so that's quite a num-
ber of classes to have to consider and do some-
thing with."

Fire guts school bus building

NVews ,Leader
A maintenance building at the Nassau County
School District transportation lot on Atlantic Avenue
in Fernandina Beach sustained heavy damage from
a 1i n' Wednesday afternoon.
Well over half of the 40- by 20-foot structure,
located at 1201 Atlantic Ave., was engulfed in I.'.. ,
when firefighters arrived just after 4:30 p.m.,
The fire, which took 12 firefighters less than 10
minutes to contain, caused an estimated total prop-

crty loss of $20,000, according to the Fernandina
Beach Fire-Rescue Department. There were no
injuries reported.
Most of the building's contents were destroyed,
and it took firefighters nearly an hour to completely
extinguish the fire.
School buses parked in the lot were untouched
by the blaze.
The Fernandina Beach Fire Marshal's Office
determined the cause of the fire to be accidental,
authorities said.

News Leader
The Nassau County Commission
heard a presentation Monday on
Seniors vs. Crime, a special project of
the Florida Attorney General aimed
at helping senior citizens fight scams.
"This is a fairly new volunteer sit-
uation that's been created," said
Seniorsvs. Crime volunteer Tom Cote-
Merow. "It's new in Fernandina. It's
very old in Florida."
The project dates back to 1989,
when the legislature ordered a task
force to be formed to report on crimes
against seniors. The Attorney
General's Task Force on Crimes
Against the Elderly led to the forma-
tion of Seniors vs. Crime, which edu-
cales seniors on frauds and scams,
and provides informal mediation in
disputes between seniors and busi-
"As you know, many of our seniors
are on fixed income, and it's difficult
for them to get by in these difficult
times, Cote-Merow told the commis-
sion. "... Our services are free.... The
idea behind it of course is to educate
the public.
"It began really as a crime preven-
tion organization, but today it has a
bigger focus in that we're trying to
educate people and catalog people who
have been ripped off," he added. "

Avoid holiday spending hangover

For the News Leader

At this time of year, many people
overindulge, whether it's overeating or
drinking too much at holiday parties or
spending too much on gifts and decora-
tions. You'll regret the former the next
morning; but with overspending you
may not feel the hangover effect until
the bills come due in January.
Here are a few tips for managing holi-
dlay expenses to avoid a holiday spend-
ing hangover:
Budgeting. Before spending a dime
on holiday expenses, calculate how
much you can afford relative to your
overall budget. Many financial planners
recommend spending no more than 1.5
percent of annual income on holiday
expenses. Consider:
Will your savings cover a few
months' expenses in case of a layoff,
unexpected medical bills or another
financial emergency?
Can you pay off all holiday-related
bills within a couple of months?
Do you alrh-eady struggle to pay your
monthly bills? .
.Would you need to suspend retir&-
ment savings to buy gifts? .
Scale back. Examine how much'
you've spent in past years and look for,
areas to trim. Consider: gifts for family,
friends and coworkers; decorations; newI

Review old credit
card and bank state-

ments to jog your memory.
Arrange gift lotteries with family,
friends and coworkers so you each buy
fewer, nicer gifts.
Suggest pooling resources to make a
sizeable group charitable contribution
rather than individual gifts to each other.
Get organized. Once you've deter-
mined your overall holiday budget,
make a list or spreadsheet with columns
Everyone you need to shop for rela-
tives, friends, coworkers, service
providers, etc.
Spending limits and gift alternatives
for each person.
How much you actually spend on
each gift. (Overspending on one present
means trimming somewhere else.)
What you gave each person to avoid
giving them the same thing next year.

way,. youwon't accidentally "re-gift"
something to the same person.

City man
A 21-year-old Fernandina
Beach man was sentenced to
15 years in a state prison at a
hearing Nov. 18 after being
found guilty in a late October
jury trial of robbery and aggra-
vated battery.
Cleave Adam Thomas, 21
South 11th St., was given the
maximum sentence -15 years
- for each of the second-degree
felonies with which he was
charged, but those sentences
are to run concurrently.
Thomnas' attorney, Assistant
Public Defender Chris Clayton,
filed a motion for a retrial, but
it was denied by Circuit Court
judge Robert Foster, who
presided over the case.
Thomas was arrested April
13 for the assault and robbery
of a teenage victim on a
Fernandina Beach street in the
early morning hours April 8.
The assault caused serious

arrest report. The incident
took place as the victim and
his girlfriend were walking on
Date Street between Ninth and
10th streets, police said.
Thomas and the other sus-
pects, who were not named in
the report, allegedly kicked
and punched the victim, then
fled the scene, the report stat-
ed. Minutes later, Thomas and
the other suspects reportedly
returned driving two or three
different vehicles, then took
the victim's phone and
smashed it on the ground, the

report stated.
Thomas and the other sus-
pects then knocked the victim
to the ground and kicked and
punched him, breaking a bone
on the right side of his face and
crushing his right sinus cavity,
the report stated. They alleged-

Taxpayers save $2 million

by paying taxes early

Nassau County taxpayers
saved over $2 million in the past
three weeks by paying their
annual property tax bill in

Dec. 1,19,012 payments valued
at $48.7 million had been

Cars and Christmas

Over the years, people
have asked: Do people really
buy cars as Christmas pres-
ents? With the exception of
high-end models, the answer
is not very often. Lexus and
Mercedes have had holiday
commercials with cars
adorned with bows, which
makes me believe that niche
sells some cars. The great
percentage of people will not
awake to a new car in the
After Christmas is anoth-
er story. The best week of
the year for car sales is often
between Christmas and New
Year's. It may seem illogical
at first since gift buying may
have taken a lot out of the
budget. But it is the biggest
vacation week of the year
and.some do have year-end
bonuses burning a hole in
their pockets. Look at the
Dec. 26 paper and you will
see lots of auto ads to kick
off the week. Are month-end
deals the best? I'll never tell,
but more cars are generally
sold then. Maybe I just told.
So, you are in the 99.4
percent of people not think-
ing of gifting a car to your-
self, your spouse or your
family. Don't feel cheated'
because options do exist.

There are
plenty of

Let's talk progress. In our
county in October, there
were 250 new vehicles regis-
tered. That is the best num-
ber in a long time. One
month earlier this year it was
137 new cars. Normal for
years was 325 a month to
give you a comparison. The
market is inching back and
forecasts for the 2011 calen-
dar year are for continued
improvement. Used car sales
for October were 387, up
from 289 in September -
again, progress. Someone
told me housing starts were
up nicely also. My theory is
that when real estate and
cars move, the economy will
move. Let's hope that the
train is leaving the station
headed for cruising speed.

phrenia and schizo-affective dis-
orders can turn the lives of the
afflicted upside down and result
in tragic circumstances.
The lives of many adults
with schizophrenia take on a
cycle of improve, progress and
then failure and crisis. These
repeated episodes result in a
slow, yet predictable deteriora-
tion over time in the level of
functioning, diminished insight
and increased need for assis-
tance and help.
In Florida DCF reports
there are 5,396 adults with men-
tal illness who reside in a state
licensed limited mental health
assisted living facility that are
Medicaid eligible. The DCF
reports another 3,233 individu-
als who were reported living in
a state licensed ALF with a men-
tal illness but did not have
Medicaid. This reflects a total
population who live in a super-
vised living arrangement of
approximately 8,629 individu-
als. It is estimated that 90 per-
cent of these individuals have a
diagnosis of schizophrenia.
Of the 202,590 individuals
with mental illness that were
served by DCF last year in
Florida, there were 72,996 who
reported living alone, in their
own apartment or in a support-
ive housing program. Of that
number 614 of these adults
were reported to ''DCF
Protective Services Program
for suspected abuse, neglect or
exploitation. Of the 614 adults

Black Friday Widowe

County leadership
Nassau County citizens owe a
debt of gratitude to county leader-
ship for their continued efforts to
control the cost and burden of gov-
ernment. Although the Nov. 24 arti-
cle was entitled "County to trim
services," the substance of the piece
was reducing county staff and costs.
Reducing cost does not necessarily
mean less service. Folks have been
known to do more with less. Our
local businesses and households
have done just that in the wake of
the Great Recession.
In recent years the county has
reduced taxes, fees, regulatory bur-
den and the budget. Their success
stands in stark contrast to the city of
Fernandina Beach, where taxes,
fees, regulatory burden and budg-
ets have all increased.

Yulee Opry
I am a songwriter,,musician and
entertainer based in Yulee. I would
like to create a music venue called
the Yulee Opry. This would be a
weekly event featuring traditional
country, bluegrass, gospel and
acoustic music. I believe Yulee and
the surrounding community would
benefit greatly from a reasonably
priced, family friendly, smoke- and
alcohol-free event for all to enjoy
and/or participate.
In the years before cable TV,
Internet, Myspace, Facebook and
Twitter, people socialized at events
that included music, dancing or
food. I guess you could say the old
barn dances were the original
"social networking" sites.
Why Yulee? There is not a lot to
do here and it is centrally located
between Jacksonville and St Marys,
Ga., Kingsland, Ga., Hilliard,
Callahan, Fernandina Beach and
North Jacksonville. Yulee is approx-
imately a 20-minute drive from
these surrounding locations. If you
include greater Jacksonville you
have a total population greater than
1.5 million people that could poten-
tially support this.
Other places where this has
been successful include Woodbine
Opry in Georgia and the Orange
Blossom Opry just south of Ocala.
They both have near capacity
crowds every time they open their
doors. Other venues would include
WoodSongs Coffeehouse Chapters,
which are small community music
venues that are sprouting up around
the country as well. Check the web
for websites and additional details.
What I need is feedback from
anyone who would like to'partici-
pate in making this a reality. We will
need a building or auditorium,
sound equipment, musicians, vol-
unteers and the support from resi-
dents, churches, non-profit organi-
zations and businesses. E-mail

On a dark, moonless December
night in 2007, I fell over a cement
parking barrier on the way to my
car from a meeting at the Nassau
County Administration Building in
Yulee. The area where I had parked
was not well lit, the barrier was the
same color as the pavement beneath
it, and I did not see it. The resulting
injuries were serious and the expe-
rience left me with an indelible fear
of cement parking barriers.
The county insurance adjuster
decreed that the lighting was suffi-
cient and that I should have
watched where I was going. The
county attorney remarked that I
was a "nice lady who had admit-
tedly sustained severe injury, but
they could not help because it would
set a precedent." I did not receive a

penny towards my $10,000 medical
bills except partial reimbursement
from my own medical insurance.
Since that time, I have collected
a slew of names of people who have
fallen over those barriers. I contin-
ue to believe that the barriers are a
serious public safety hazard. I
believe that there should be a law
stating that these barriers should at
least be painted so that they are vis-
ible at night. At best, I think they
should be removed entirely from
public spaces.
But here's a surprising turn of
events in this saga. My husband
went to a county commission meet-
ing on Monday and parked in my
same space. The area is still not lit
and he said it was "pitch black"
when he left the meeting. However,
every single cement parking barri-
er in the county parking lot has now
been painted white! Hoorah! Thank
you Nassau County!
I assume you realized after my
incident that you might have been
partially responsible after all. In any
case, my fall was almost worth all
the pain and suffering I went
through if it resulted in the county's
decision to paint the barriers.
Almost. Now let's see if we can get
a law passed so that the rest of the
barriers in Nassau County must
also receive a coat of paint white,
yellow or some other distinctively
reflective color.

PJ shopping party
This was my first time and it was
just delightful. I had such fun walk-
ing around in my Fairy Godmother
nightshirt; my wand; and my Miss
Fernandina 1958 crown. When I
would get a compliment on how
beautiful the crown was, I'd turn
around the photo proof as I told
them, "It's 52 years old."

Put meaning into gifts
Five of our grandchildren are in
their teens. Every Christmas, they
are totally inundated with an over-
abundance of gifts! At the end of
the clay, they have no idea what gifts
they have been given or who has
given them the gift.
Several years ago, my husband
and I decided to try a new approach

to gifts. We searched for gifts that
had meaning, caring and depth in
their description. It worked! My
grandchildren have never forgot-
ten these gifts, and every Christmas
they have a "conversation" and
meaningful gift to discuss with one
another and with their friends.
Two Chfistmases ago, we chose
a cat from Cats Angels for each
grandchild. We sent each child a
picture of the cat, text on the histo-
ry of how Cats Angels got the cat
and a medical preview of the cat
One grandchild was given the care
of a kitty that had lost an eye, and
another supported and followed the
history of his cat that had had a leg
removed. Each child was given
information about the cat and the
new familywhen the cat was adopt-
ed. This gift was very special, and
each child still remembers his or
her chosen cat!
Last Christmas, we researched
and chose five charities. We sent
each grandchild a list of the chari-
ties and information regarding the
charity's work. The children were
given the month of December to
decide on one of our charities or to
come up with one that he/she had
chosen. Our granddaughter who
had open heart surgery chose the
American Heart Association; two
children chose Make-A-Wish; two
children chose St. Jude's Children's
Hospital. We received the thank you
notes (because the children's
names were not disclosed), and we
sent them to the grandchildren.
This year, we are looking at the
needs of specific four-legged ani-
mals and humans. Cats Angels (my
volunteer choice) is supporting the
medical needs of a cat that is being
treated for neurological damages
and another cat whose leg had to be
amputated after the leg was shat-
tered. These medical costs are con-
siderable, and these cats are so
grateful for their care! We are still
searching for a way to add two chil-
dren who have monetary needs.
Each grandchild can select one
feline or human "case" to support
for 2010.
Other sources of gifts include
Angel Trees that are found at some
stores and churches and animal res-
cue sites (such as Cats Angels),
resources that support our troops
who certainly deserve our help,
clinic support for work at local den-
tal and medical clinics and relief
efforts in Haiti or locations in our

This article is not written as a
"pat on the back" article. It has been
written to share our delight at
choosing charitable gifts for our
older grandchildren. The grand-
children will be waiting to see what
creative choices they have for this
This effort has certainly brought
pleasure to us also. Last year, for my
birthday, my son and his family,
sent me an Adopt-a-Bird Certificate
for a bird named Akai. Akai is an
Eastern Screech Owl that lives in
Charlotte, N.C. I have been her
"birthday lady" for a year. I love this
gift. We felt that this gift of Akai
meant that "what goes around
comes around," and we both felt so
happy to be a part of this gift!

Call me the Black Friday Widower.
Every year, the day after
Thanksgiving, my wife creeps out of
bed before light, dons battle dress uni-
form, Kevlar vest, combat boots and ren-
dezvous in some secret location with her sister
where they presumably review last-minute bat-
Stle plans. I'm only guessing because I've never
been allowed to tag along.
"You couldn't keep us with us," the spousal
unit quipped one morning as she smeared on
camouflage greasepaint in the darkness.
"You'd just slow us down. Go back to sleep. I'll
be in touch."
Before the sun has cleared the horizon, she
and her sister are way up the Nung River, as it
were, engaging in full-scale urban mall war-
fare, a series of catfights, skirmishes and
brawls that last until she comes crawling home
Sunday evening, nails broken, hair bedraggled
and car stuffed with enough loot to tilt the
scales at a state line weigh station. Then she
crashes and wouldn't wake up unless the oak
tree in our yard fell on our bedroom deck. Or
unless she dreamed there was a big sale in
some store she missed.
I sleep as far away from her as possible
because she kicks and claws and bellows at
other women who crowd her on the sales
aisles. It's called PTSD Post Thanksgiving
Sale Disorder. Only wives get it and it's really
bad around the holidays. Sadly, there's no cure
for it. Relapses occur annually
I generally get a brief dispatch from my wife
around the end of Day One, usually something
like this: "Found a nice, quiet place for chow.

Off to bed. My feet are killing
^ me. It's hell out there."
It won't do me any good to
try to call her because she
p and her sister are on radio
Silence with their cell phones
and have them set to vibrate
in the oversized purses they
carry. I guess a ringing cell
phone might alert competing
CUPOF predatory shoppers that
JOE there's a big sale on Aisle 7,
which could result in an all
out free-for-all. Somebody is
Joe Palmer going to come up the winner
and the losers will not play
fair. Bribing a sales clerk? Child's play.
Summoning store security and telling him the
lady carrying the blouse is shoplifting?
Positively amateurish. Anything goes when it's
in high demand on Black Friday and there are
more people than product.
Sometimes I get strange phone calls from
my wife in the midst of these holiday loot cam-
paigns. She called me the Saturday after
Thanksgiving this year and I could barely hear
her. When I asked her where she was, she
shushed me and told me she was hiding under-
neath a purse display rack at one place.
"Why are you whispering?" I asked.
"Because there's a very determined looking
lady bird dogging my every move," she whis-
"Why," I had to ask.
"Because they have Coach purses on sale."
"So, buy yourself one," I replied.

r again

"I already have one," she whispered back,
sounding like she had her hand cupping the
"So why are you telling me this?" I asked,
with a huge and unpardonable amount of male
"In case you might like to buy me another
one and surprise me with it, dummy," she
sighed and then the connection went dead. I
tried to call her back but it went straight to
voice mail. I envisioned a bare knuckles stand-
off at the Coach counter between my wife and
the interloper. I wonder what she told her hus-
band when she kissed him goodbye? If I don't
come back, hbney, remember Ill always love
you and there are Thanksgiving leftovers in
the fringe. They should tide you over while.
Poor sap, I thought. Wonder how much
time in he has? After 33 years, I'm a veteran
widower of the Black Friday weekend wars.
This ain't a game for newlywed hubbies who've
yet to figure out how to boil water without set-
ting fire to the kitchen. This is pure survival
school stuff.
I don't hear from my wife Saturday night
and I figure she's beat and grumpy so I don't
call her. Another sin. Just as I'm drifting off to
sleep, the phone rings.
"Why didn't you call me and tell me good-
night?" she inquires without an intro.
I grovel and apologize sufficiently to merit
forgiveness this time. I hear crowds of squab-
bling women in the background. She couldn't
sleep and decided to hit a midnight madness
sale. Post Thanksgiving Sale Disorder. There's
no cure for it.

FRIDAY. December 3. 2010/News-Leader


Rings, trees and weathering the seasons of life

"Ugh," I huffed as the large sec-
tion of tree landed on my shoulder.
The cold mountain air something
every now and then I miss rolled
from my mouth in puffs of steam as
I exhaled and made my way up the
hill one more time. I was 18, ener-
getic and working for my friend's
step-dad in northern Vermont.
Looking back I suppose it was
my pride that made me pick up the
biggest logs, but call it what you will,
I loved the challenge. Anyway,
Vince, that was my friend's step-dad,
needed the help and I needed his
approval; at least that's the way it
seemed during that season of my
As far back as I can remember

I've always had a
fascination with
wood. From carry-
ing those huge logs
Sup the hillside in
Vermont, to build-
ing custom cabi-
netry in my early
years here in
Florida, wood and I
PULP have had quite a
NOTES history together.
I've cut it with
chainsaws, cooked
Pastor it at the paper mill
Rob Goyette and shaped it into
high-end furniture.
All in all, I find wood, like so many
other things in God's creation, a

reflection of life itself.
For instance, just consider the
rings that appear when you cut
down a tree and look at the end of
one of its logs. Each ring, which has
a small dark section and a wide
lighter section, represents a year in
the life of the tree. The dark portion,
which is hard, shows the tree's slow
growth during late summer and
early fall. The wide light colored sec-
tion represents the rapid growth that
takes place in the spring. Unlike the
summer wood, spring wood is much
softer. Ultimately, both parts are
essential to the strength and health
of the tree. Even in the winter, when
all apparent growth stops, deep
below the surface, where no one can

see what's going on, vital things are
taking place.
Now for me, the tree's message
to us is clear. Though we would all
love to live in the prosperous season
of spring continually, we need the
other seasons of life just the same.
Without them, though we may grow
fast, we will never grow strong.
I think that's an encouraging
word, especially if you're in one of
those seasons where you feel like
you've lost all your leaves and noth-
ing good seems to be happening. I
suppose that's why over the years
I've learned to give thanks no matter
what season I'm in. That doesn't
mean, by the way, that I like every '
season, but I do see how God uses

them all to build in me His fiber,
character and strength.
Like the tree with its rings, as I
look at my life and count through
the 46 years and the few gray hairs
that now mark where I've been and
where I'm at (I know to some of you
I'm still just a kid), I can't help but
stop and appreciate the process
that God has used to bring me this
far. In the end, I've found Him pres-
ent and faithful during every season
of life.
"To everything there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under
the heavent." (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

Mother of four flexes muscles, captures titles

I INews-Leader

Shari Riepe, a 43-year-old mother of four, is a fitness competitor and has collected
hardware in her last three events.

UM^J^.. i


3 4&~"~

Shari Riepe isn'tyour typical
43-year-old mother of four. She
is a fitness competitor and has
swept up in her last few events.
The weekend of Nov. 19-20,
Riepe, of Yulee, placed third in
the world championships in Las
Vegas. The event drew more
than 500 competitors and Riepe
battled 55 in her division.
"The girls rocked," Riepe
said of her competition. "They
were from South Africa, India,
Korea. You name it, they were
Riepe was impressed with a
woman 20 years her senior.
"She's my hero and she's
61," Riepe said.
In the fitness division, com-
petitors demonstrate strength,
acrobatics, dance and flexibili-
"To see a 61-year-old doing
cartwheels and pushups ...."
Riepe said.
Riepe, a longtime acrobatic
instructor, took up competitive
fitness when she was 30 and
pregnant with her fourth child.
Since then, she has under-
gone five knee surgeries and
was diagnosed with a neuro
muscular condition that affects
her nerve receptors.
"I use them up," she said.
But with her condition now
under control with medicine,
Riepe decided to compete
"I hadn't competed for a
long time," Riepe said.
She took third place in
Tampa two weeks prior to the
Vegas show and was a first-
place finisher in Daytona in
"I thought maybe I was too
old," she said. "Or maybe I'm
stupid for doing this."
But her trainer, Michelle
Wilson of Anytime Fitness in

Shari Riepe during a
recent fitness competition.

Yulee, encouraged Riepe.
The Riepe family relocated
from Alaska in July.
"I love it," Riepe said.
"Everyone is so friendly. I love
the beach. I surf. So here we
are. It is one of the prettiest
beaches I've seen and it has the
coolest people."
Riepe is an elementary
school teacher, "but the district
, isn't hiring," she said.
She plans to start tumbling
classes soon and will continue
to train for an upcoming show
in Orlando in May.
"I don't drink or smoke and
I've never done drugs," Riepe
said. "Fitness is a focus on
health. I'm healthier-from a
high-protein, low-carb diet."
Riepe comes by her craving
for fitness honestly. Her father
was a body builder in the 1970s
and competed against Arnold
"He was Mr. America,"
Riepe said of her 70-year-old
father Randy Watson. "He just
started his personal training


Jags host Cleveland

LAST GAME: The Jaguars
had their three-game winning
streak snapped Sunday as
they fell 24-20 to the New
York Giants at the New
Meadowlands Stadium. The
Jaguars led through three
quarters after they scored on
all three of their possessions
in the first half to build a 17-6
lead. The Jaguars dominated
the game statistically, includ-
ing 26 first downs to 17 and a
time of possession difference
of 35:27 to 24:33.

Jones-Drew rushed for 113
yards and led a ground attack
that outrushed the Giants
207-135. Jones-Drew has
100 rushing yards in four con-
secutive games for the first
time in his career and is aver-
aging an NFL-best 120.3
yards on the ground in the
last four games.

road game Sunday as they

visit Tennessee (5-6) for a piv-
otal .AFC South game at LP

Exercise helps ward offthe common cold

Do you know people who never
seem to get sick? Perhaps they
have a super-human immune
system, but maybe they have
another secret. It could be exercise. New
research has shown that working out
regularly not only builds muscle, it may
also keep your immune system in good
shape as well, helping ward off the com-
mon cold.
According to Dr. David Nieman,
director of the Human Performance
Laboratory at Appalachian State
University, those who exercise five or
more times a week get fewer and less
severe colds than those who work out
one or fewer times a week.
"The most powerful weapon someone
has during cold season is to go out, on a
near-daily basis, and put in at least 30
minutes of exercise or a brisk walk,"
Nieman told My Health News Daily.
Just like exercise gets your heart rate
up, Nieman and his colleagues found
exercising stimulates the movement of
immune cells throughout the body. This
effect tended to kick in about three
hours after a workout, and the more fre-
quent the exercise program, the more
frequently your immune cells are on
charged up to look for pathogens.

r -Hu ^ The study was pub-
lished in the November
edition of the British
Medical Journal.
Researchers tracked
the respiratory health
S of 1,000 people ages 18
S to 85 for 12 weeks dur-
ing autumn and winter,
and asked them ques-
tions about how often
they exercised and how
SPORTS fit they felt.
The researchers
MEDICINE found the length of time
GREGORY cold symptoms lasted
Su t MD was about 45 percent
SMITIL. M.D. shorter in those people
'"- who worked out five or
more times a week compared to those
who worked out just once a week. Also,
not only were the duration of symptoms
shorter, those most fit tended to feel that
the severity of their symptoms were also
some 40 percent less.
"We looked at diet, we looked at men-
tal stress, weight, education levels, gen-
der, on and on," Nieman said. "The thing
that people can do the way they live
- that's head and shoulders above all of
them is physical activity."

People who are older and married are
less likely to get a cold than people who
are young and single, the study found.
Older people may have more ani ib... li. '
than younger people, Nieman said. And
married people may go out less or might
have less exposure to other people and
their germs, he added.
This is not the first such study to
show a link between exercise and a
boosted immune system. A 2002 study in
the journal Medicine & Science in Sports
showed activity reduced the risk for an -
upper respiratory tract infection by 23
percent, compared with low levels of
physical activity. Also, a 2006 study in the
Amnerican Journal ofMedicine said an
exercise regimen could also reduce the
incidence of colds.

The Harlem Globetrotters,
who have contributed more
innovations to the game of
basketball than any other
team in history, have imple-
mented the first-ever four-
point shot as part of all of its
games on the team's 2011 "4
Times the Fun" North
American tour, the team's
record 85th season of touring.
The Globetrotters will
debut the four-pointer to a
national audience Sunday at
7:30 p.m. when ESPN2 tele-
casts the Globetrotters' game
against the Washington Gene-
rals from the ESPN Wide
World of Sports Complex at
Disney World in Orlando.
This game-changing inno-
vation will be on display when
the Globetrotters take on the
. Washington Generals at
Veterans Memorial Arena
March 11 at 7 p.m.
Tickets, starting at $15,
are on sale at www.ticketmas-
ter.com, the Veterans Memo-
rial Arena box office or by
phone at 800-745-3000.
Information on group and
scout tickets can also be
found at www.harlemglobe-
'The Globetrotters have
been at the forefront of bas-
ketball's evolution throughout
the sport's history," said

Globetrotters CEO Kurt
Schneider. "From the alley-
oopto the slam dunk to the
behind-the-back pass, the
Globetrotters have long
brought innovations to bas-
ketball that are now staples of
the game, and we're confident
the 4-point shot will change
the game of basketball going
Throughout the 2011
North American tour, which
will travel to 220 cities in 46
U.S. States and six Canadian
provinces between December
26 and April 17, every Globe-
trotters game will now feature
two designated four-point
shooting spots on each side of
midcourt, each located 35 feet
From the basket (the spots are
12 feet beyond the NBA's offi-
cial 3-point line).
The four-point option is
expected to further open up
the playing'floor for the
Globetrotters as well as their
Opponents, the Generals, and
is expected to generate even
more high-scoring action and
competitive play.
"Bring it,' said Washing-
ton Generals President Red
Klotz, whose team has not
beaten the GIpbetrotters
since January 1971, when
Klotz himself sank a game-
winning shot in Martin, Tenn.

"Long-range marksman-
ship is a Generals trademark,
and we've already installed
several new plays to take
advantage of the four-pointer,"
he said. "If anything, this only
makes us stronger."
"I only wish they had this
shot when I was playing," said
Globetrotter Legend Curly
Neal, one of only five Globe-
trotters in history to have his
jersey number retired. "I
could have lit up that score-
board all night long."
SThe Original Harlem
Globetrotters continue a
world famous tradition of ball
handling wizardry, basketball
artistry and one-of-a-kind fam-
ily entertainment that contin-
ues to thrill fans of all ages.
Throughout their history,
the Globetrotters have show-
cased their iconic talents in
120 countries and territories
on six continents, often break-
ing down cultural and societal
barriers while providing fans
with their first-ever basketball
experience. Proud inductees
of the Naismith Memorial
Basketball Hall of Fame, the
Globetrotters have enter-
tained hundreds of millions of
fans among them popes,
kings, queens and presidents
- over more than eight
thrilling decades.

Unusual king mackerel opportunities for fishermen

Bryan Palmer recently caught and released this eight-
pound Lofton Creek bass. Late fall offers excellent fresh-
water fishing in Lofton Creek, where largemouth bass
-are fattening up for the winter.

"I was wade fishing at the
south end of Amelia Island
during a past December surf
fishing trip when the baitfish
schools simply went ballistic,"
Capt. George
Lannon said.
"The next
thing I knew
some real
king macker-
el began
attacking the
schools of
ON THE mullet and
WATER sky-rocketed
from the
FERRY shallow
LACOSS surf."
.. During a
past Decem-
ber, area king mackerel fish-
ermen enjoyed a late fall run
of kingfish at FA fish haven.
Area sports fishing boats
have been catching kingfish
weighing to 35 pounds at FA
reef in recent days while flat-
lining dead Spanish sardines
from the transom of theiL
anchored bottom fishing boat.
If you plan on offshore fishing
this weekend, be sure to
bring along your kingfish
FA, FC and HH live bot-
tom areas are giving up nice
catches of gag grouper, black
sea bass and the occasional
cobia. Jim Sutton reports
there is a nice cobia bite tak-
ing place at many of
Jacksonville's offshore fish
Sunday looks like the best
day to venture offshore with





winds blowing from the west
at 5-10 miles an hour with air
temperatures in the mid 60s.
Lofton Creek is giving up
nice catches of largemouth
bass during the last of the
incoming and the last of the
falling tide. Drifting a live
shiner under a small float
close to shoreline cover is

hooking bass to eight pounds.
Casting a No. 11 black and sil-
ver Rapala close to shoreline
cover is also producing bass
to five pounds.
Don't overlook bass fish-
ing opportunities in the Little
St. Marys River and Thomas
Creek during the fall fishing
Pompano are now migrat-
ing south from the Carolinas
and holding along the shallow
surf, where live sand fleas
and fresh dead shrimp are
working well for these deli-
cious eating fish. Also, look
for bluefish, whiting, puppy
drum and red drum to hold in
the surf. Sea trout are taking
live shrimp fished under a
trout float at the small jetty
rocks at the south end of
Amelia Island.
Backcountry fishermen
will find a high tide arriving at
7 a.m. and sea trout will be
holding in water depths from
5-20 feet. Drift a live shrimp
deep under a trout float for
sea trout weighing to five
pounds. During the last of the

falling tide, the Shave Bridge
is holding sea trout at the
northeast corner of the rail-
road bridge.
Redfish will begin to
school during the last few
hours of the falling tide while
taking Berkley Gulp shrimp
fished with a 1/8-ounce jig
head or live shrimp barbed
through the tail with a 1/8-
ounce jig as well. Look for
boat docks that have oyster-
bars close by to hold school-
ing reds weighing to seven
Be sure to call your local
live bait supplier the day
before your planned backwa-
ter fishing trip to make sure
live shrimp are on hand for
The News-Leader encour-
ages local anglers to submit
photographs of their catches.
Email photos to bjones@

to PO. Box 766, Fernandina
Beach, FL 32035, or drop

Local environmental fine art photographer Michael Spicer will host an exhibit at
Eileen's Art and Antiques Dec. 11 from 5-8 p.m.

Artist 'pushes the limits'

Michael Spicer, a local
environmental fine art pho-
tographer, is showing some of
his latest large format photo-
graphs, fired into metal, at an
art opening at Eileen's Art
and Antique's, 702 Center St.,
downtown Fernandina Beach
on Dec. 11 from 5-8 p.m.
Pushing the limits for new
ways of presenting his work
has been an ongoing chal-
lenge for this artist. Having
previously used hand-made
open frames made from cop-
per, aluminum and stainless
steel, his most recent works
use some of the latest tech-
nology in printing and presen-
tation. Printed directly on

sheets of
metal that
come in ae
wide variety
of sizes as
big as 40 by
60 inches, or
larger if
desired, the
Spicer images are
then kiln
fired for
durability and archival preser-
vation. These large photo-
graphs can then be hung
directly on a wall over a sofa
or fireplace at home or in an
office or business setting,
eliminating the need for tradi-
tional glass, mats and frame.

Spicer has always had an
artist's eye for the world
around him. This show
includes some of his environ-
mental abstract photographs
that are sometimes described
as paintings although no digi-
tal distortions or overlays are
introduced into his work.
Meet Spicer and see this
new work on Dec. 11 at
Eileen's Art and Antiques as
part of an evening of art and
festivities with the Artrageous
Art Walk and the Fernandina
Beach lighted Christmas
parade. More information
about Spicer's photography
can be found at www.michael-

FRIDAY. December 3.2010 LEISURE News-Leader

Vreeland to speak at Amelia Island Book Festival

The board of directors of the Amelia Island
Book Festival is proud to announce the addi-
tion of internationally acclaimed bestselling
author Susan Vreeland as a headliner and
keynote speaker for the Feb. 18-19 festival.
Vreeland will be the speaker at the Writers'
Workshop Luncheon, to be held at the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center on Feb. 19. Tickets
are $45.
Tickets to all the festival's ticketed events
are now on sale for members. Tickets for non-
members will go on sale Jan. 1. Visit
www.ameliaislandbookfestival.com for com-
plete author listings, events, prices and fre-
quent updates.
Vreeland, three-time winner of the Theodor
Seuss Geisel Award, is known for historical fic-
tion on art-related themes. In her latest novel,
Luncheon of the Boating Party, Vreeland brings
to vivid life the 14 subjects in Renoir's paint-
ing, which is recognized and loved all over the
world as the apogee of Impressionist figure
painting. Girl in Hyacinth Blue (1999, finalist
for Book Sense Book of the Year) traces an
alleged Vermeer painting through the cen-
turies, revealing its influence on those who

possessed it. It has become part of the curricu-
lum for many schools and universities, and
was made into a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie.
The Passion ofArtemisia (2002) illuminates
the inner life of Artemisia Gentileschi, Italian
Baroque painter and the first woman to make
her living solely by her brush. The Forest
Lover (2004) follows the rebel Canadian
painter Emily Carr into the British Columbia
wilderness to paint the native totemic carvings
of the people she loved. Her story collection,
Life Studies (2005), reveals Impressionist and
post-Impressionist painters from points of view
of people who knew them and shows that ordi-
nary people can have profound encounters
with art. Vreeland's novels have been translat-
ed into 25 languages. Visit
The Author's Luncheon keynote speaker
will be Rick Bragg, author of the critically
acclaimed and best-selling All Over but the
Shoutin'and a Pulitzer Prize-winning national
correspondent for the New York Times. Bragg
says he learned to tell stories by listening to
the masters, the people of the foothills of the
Appalachians. They talked, of the sadness,

poverty, cruelty, kindness, hope, hopeless-
ness, faith, anger and joy of their everyday
lives, and painted pictures on the very haze of
the early evening, when work faded into story-
Bragg was born in Alabama, grew up there
and worked at several newspapers before join-
ing the New York Times in 1994. He covered
the murder and unrest in Haiti while a metro
reporter there, then wrote about the
Oklahoma City bombing, the Jonesboro
killings, the Susan Smith trial and more as a
national correspondent based in Atlanta. He
later became Miami Bureau Chief for the
Times just in time for Elian Gonzalez's arrival
and the international battle for the little boy.
He is now a roving correspondent based in
New Orleans.
Bragg has twice won the prestigious
American Society of Newspaper Editors
Distinguished Writing Award, and more than
50 writing awards in his 20-year career. In
1992, he was awarded a Nieman Fellowship at
Harvard University. He has taught writing in
colleges and in newspaper newsrooms.

Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner
of Bitter and Sweet which was, in no particu-
lar order, an IndieBound NEXT List Selection,
a Borders Original Voices Selection, a Barnes
& Noble Book Club Selection, Pennie's Pick at
Costco, a Target Bookmarked Club Pick and a
National Bestseller. It was also named the #1
Book Club Pick for Fall 2009/Winter 2010 by
