Crime



down



7.1%
JASON YURGARTIS
News- Leader
Crime was down 7.1 percent in
Nassau County for the first half of
2010 over the same period a year ago,
according to the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement's Semi-Annual
Uniform Crime Report. That was even
better than the reported 4.8 percent
statewide decline.
Newly hired Nassau County
Undersheriff Gordon Bass said his
agency is encouraged by the statis-
tics. "I'd say we're experiencing and
.enjoying, like the rest ofthe state, a
decrease in violent offenses," Bass
said.
But he.said a slight spike in report-
ed burglaries 163 at the time of last
year's report compared to 206 in this
year's is cause for some concern.
However, ."a lot of the spike can be
attributed to a spree of burglaries
involving juveniles, but those cases
were cleared," he said.
Fernandina Beach Police Chief Jim
Hurley said though the numbers are
encouraging, it's hard to pinpoint a
specific reason why crime is down.
But a more accurate measure, he said,
is the end of year report, which tends
to stay slightly more stagnant from
year-to-year.
"We're encouraged that we're
doing the right things and positively
affecting crime with our proactive

forecast
JASON YURGARTIS
News-Leader
With cold, windy and dry weather,
due in large partto persistent La Nifia
conditions, county fire-rescue per-
sonnel are gearing up for what they
expect to be an unusually active wild-
fire season.
Nassau County, Fire Rescue
Assistant Chief Matt Graves, a 12 1/2-
year veteran who was promoted from
the rank of lieutenant about four
months ago, said residents need to
pay particular attention to the rules for
open burning, which include pro-
scribed distances for burning near
homes and woods lines, and pits or
barrels to contain the iii-.
Graves said he's "particularly con-
cerned" with the fire behavior in the
dry, windy seasonal conditions com-
bined with an uncharacteristically dry
rainy season locally.
"It's going to be much different
than what we're used to," he said.
"We're more mindful this year than
we were in the past."
Graves also pointed out that there
is a higher propensity for fire now -
due to the use of space heaters, fire
pits and heating oils than in warmer
months when fires are more likely to
be ignited by lightning strikes.
County Fire Chief Sam Young, who
was named permanent chief about
eight months ago after assuming the
interim role following the departure of
former chief Chuck Cooper, said coun-
ty fire rescue personnel recently
underwent training in urban/rural
interface firefighting. In that course,
offered by the stale Department of
Forestry, firefighters received addi-

Pass on holiday digestive woes


RICHARD N. WALDMAN. MD
For the News-Leader


During the holiday season, delicious and
decadent foods are everywhere. Foods that
have the potential to throw the digestive ;system
for a loop are all around.
Problems of the digestive system' such as
constipation, diarrhea, heartburn and gas occur
more frequently in women than in men and
may be made worse by changes in hormone lev-
els caused by menstruation and pregnancy.
Women are also more likely to develop irri-
table bowel syndrome (IBS), a common,diges-
tive disorder marked by persistent abdominal
pain and bowel changes. IBS sufferers may
have a strong digestive reaction to stress, large
meals, caffeine, dairy products and large
amounts of alcohol typical staples of the holi-
day season. Try these tips to avoid .seasonal
digestive consequences:
Eating large meals and not getting enough
fiber can trigger constipation. Symptoms may,
include having fewer than three bowel move-
ments a week, firm or hard-to-pass stools,
abdominal swelling or bloating, straining during
bowel movements and a full feeling after a bowel
movement.
The fix: Eat at least 25 grams of fiber each
day, drink plenty of fluids, exercise and use
the bathroom when you have the urge. Your doc-
tor may also prescribe laxatives or other thera-
pies.
You may develop a case of diarrhea -
defined as having three or more loose bowel
movements in a day after eating or drinking
foods that contain harmful viruses or bacteria.

rhea lasts more than a few hours. Avoid drinks
that include dairy products, caffeine or sugar,

The fix: Avoid overeating. Instead of lying
down after a meal, try taking a walk.
Gas and bloating can be triggered by hard-;

The fix Pay attention to which foods give you
gas and avoid them. Your doctor may suggest an
over-the-counter treatment.
Talk to your doctor if your abdominal or
digestive discomfort persists. Symptoms that
have been present for at least 12 weeks out of the
last 12 months may be a sign of IBS or a more
serious condition, such as colon cancer.

Tips to


keep flu


at bay

'. For the News-Leader
Influenza (the flu) is a con-
tagious respiratory illness
caused .by influenza viruses.
People who have the flu often
feel some or all of these symp-
toms:
.Fever, or feeling fever-
ish/chills
.. Cough
Sore throat
S.. Runny or stuffy nose
Muscle or body aches
Headaches
Fatigue (very tired)
Some people may have
vomiting and diarrhea,
though this is more common
in children than adults. It's
also important to note that not
everyone with flu will have a
fever.
The single best way to pre-
vent the flu is to get a flu vac-
cine each season. There are
two types of flu vaccines:
The "flu shot" an inacti-
vated vaccine (containing
killed virus) that is given with
apeedle. .... . ., .
lie na.aI-spray fluvaccine
S-' vaccine rhade wmit'Aive,
weakened flu viruses that do
not cause the flu.
The nasal spray is
approved for use in healthy
people 2-49 years of age who
are not pregnant
You should get a yearly flu
vaccination starting in
September.
While everyone should get
a flu vaccine each flu season,
it's especially important that
certain people get vaccinated
either because they are at
high risk of having serious flu-
related complications or
because they live with or care
for people at high risk for
developing flu-related com-
plications.
That includes children
younger than five, but espe-
cially children younger than
two years old, adults age 65
and older and pregnant
women.
Other people for whom
vaccination is especially
important are people who live
in nursing homes and other
long-term care facilities and
those who live with or care
for those at high risk for com-
plications from flu.
Some people should not
be vaccinated without. first
consulting a physician.
The Coalition for the
Reduction/Elimination of
Ethnic Disparities in Health
(CREED) of Nassau County
educates the community
, ?concerning chronic and
:infectious diseases and the
importance of early access to
care.

approach," Hurley said. "But
crime stats are tough to pre-
dict. You can't really make a
case for one trend (of nature of
crimes committed) to be affect-
ed by the economy (or other
factors).
"We average about 650
arrests a year over the last six
years," Hurley continued.
"We're right about on par with
that (this year)."
"The overall perception
might be, with everyone more
conscious of the economy, the
crimes would increase, when
in fact, they're down," Hurley
said. "The numbers were also
down a year ago (in the semi-
annual report), but there was
some fluctuation the other
way" in the second half of the
year.
Crime trends in Fernandina
Beach mirror the statewide
numbers.
"The first six months of the
year typically provide a good
picture of where we are going
the rest of the year, and the
fact that we had 19,000 fewer
crimes (in Florida) is a positive
sign," said FD.LE
Commissioner Gerald Bailey
via a press release. "The men
and women in law enforce-
ment are working hard across
our state."
The report includes data
submitted by 405 of the state's
416 law enforcement agencies
for crimes reported from
January through June, accord-
ing to an FDLE press release.
The report reflects crime vol-
ume only. Crime rate, which
takes into account population,
is calculated in the annual
report.
"Domestic violence often
goes up in a bad economy, but
we've stayed about the same,"
Hurley said. "However, we've
dropped dramatically (23 last
year, 12 this year) in (report-,
ed) aggravated assault"
Crimes handled by
Fernandina Beach Police are
down 22.4 percent from a year
ago, while those handled by
the sheriff's office are down.
0.9 percent, according to the
report. Last year at this time,
the FDLE reported that crime
was down 33.2 percent coun-
tywide a 42.2 percent drop
for crimes in the jurisdiction of
the sheriff's office and a 10.4
percent increase for those han-
dled by city police from the
same period in 2008.
City police and the sheriffs
office have essentially' flip-
fl6oppe1i .ithe percentage of
cases cleared from a year ago.
The FDLE reported last year
in its semi-annual report that
the sheriff's office cleared 41.7
percent of 638 index crimes
reported to the agency, while
Fernandina Beach Police
cleared 34.9 percentof the 255
crimes reported. This year,
Fernandina Beach Police
cleared 41.4 percent of 297
reported index crimes, while
the sheriff's office cleared 34.8
percent out of 632 cases.
"I'm happy with the way
things are going," Hurley said.
"I think we've got some good
things going."
Bass said one of the key
factors in the reduction of
crime in the county has been
citizen involvement Since the
implementation of sheriff's
office volunteer programs in
early 2009, participation is up,
with the agency boasting 42
volunteers, something Bass
said has not only helped pub-
lic safety, but has freed up uni-

patrol units.
"The volunteers act as a
force multiplier," he said. "I
can't sing their praises enough,
and their presence doesn't
affect the sheriff's office budg-
et."
* Those volunteers will be
specifically helpful, Bass said,
as the sheriff's office kicked
off its annual seasonal burgla-
ry patrol. just after
Thanksgiving. The patrols,
which are in effect until Jan. 2,
target prone areas or areas
that have seen an increase in
home and auto burglaries.
School resource officers, mem-
bers of the agriculture/marine
unit, traffic unit, D.A.R.E. offi-
cers and volunteers will patrol
the identified areas in marked
and unmarked vehicles.
Hurley said his agency will
also continue to work with the
community to help prevent.
seasonal crime.
"We did a lot of active retail
theft prevention during the hol-
idays last year and we'll be
doing that again," he said.
"We've done a good job low-
ering the frequency of retail
theft. We credit the local busi-
nesses as well for being more,
proactive. It's a community
effort, but it's working."
Hurley said he hopes to
stay proactive, enacting new
programs and innovations in
the coming months.
"We have some hoops to
jump through in terms of
grants," he said. "But we're
mixing that funding with pro-
ceeds from drug forfeitures
and other sources."
One such program on the
drawing board is the use of
strategically placed cameras
in Fernandina Beach, which
Hurley said will serve two
functions.
"We will have web access to
some camera ports, views of


some things that will serve a
dual purpose," he said. "A law
enforcement nexus that will
also serve a tourism function."
Hurley said there are ten-
tative plans to position a cam-
era near the roundabout area
of Sadler Road, facing the
ocean and the Slider's Seaside
Grill parking lot; and one
downtown that would face the
marina. :.
The cameras would give
law enforcement the ablility'to
monitor criminal activity in the
parking areas and the boat
slips at the marina, but would
also provide a means for out-of-
towners who could be potential
visitors to the island to pre-
view the area via a feed on the
Internet.
"We are very much becom-
ing an Internet society," Hurley
said. "People are aware they
can go on the net and preview
places to travel. If we can cap-
ture that and broadcast it on
the web, that might generate
further interest."
Looking ahead, Bass said
the sheriff's office is in the ini-
tial stages of working to imple-
ment hew methods of data col-
lection in conjunction with
criminal activity.
"We're just now entering
into discussions with com*iput-
er/technology experts 'to
develop a real-time data sys-
tem that would identify pat-
terns, trends and hot spots for
crime," Bass said.
He said such a system,
which is already in place in
Jacksonville, would increase
the efficiency of providing pub-
lic safety through a computer-
ized collection of data, which is
in turn entered into databases
for evaluation by the sheriff
and con'imanid staff to devel-
op strategic planning to best
utilize personnel.

Ned Tyson's spirit endures


It was a cold winter day in
2003, when Ned Tyson had a
warm thought.
Let's hold a road race
each year in February to
attract people to Amelia
Island when tourist traffic
is normally slow. This would
pinpoint Amelia Island on the
map of the running commu-
nity, and help local business-
es withstand the agonies of
the off-season.
Tyson called together Joe
Gerrity and me for lunch at
Sliders Seaside Restaurant.
He pitched his idea. We
agreed it could be a home
run but that we could also
take a swing and whiff. That's
all the hope Tyson needed.
He
launched
into high
gear, con-
tacting city
officials and

embraced the idea (due to

manship and reputation).

course in costume to exhort
the runners. The cheerlead-
ers from the high school
would bring their enthusi-
asm, and the honors students
Would handle the registration
and water tables.
In his fastidious prepara-
tion, Tyson rode his bike
along the 6.2-mile racecourse
time after time to ensure its
accuracy and appeal. He
wanted the-event woven into
the historic fabric of the city.
And he liked the ring and
symbolism of the name he
penned, "Pirates on the Run."
The first 10-K race came
together in 2004 with surpris-
ing ease. We had 70 runners
- including local favorite
Ryder Leary. The seed had
been planted. It would blos-
som into an expanded race
(with a 10-K and a 5-K now)
of 700 runners today, nur-
tured in recent years by the
ever-capable hands of the
Amelia Island Runners Club.
Tyson always planned to pass
the baton once the race grew
to the size and scope of what
he originally envisioned. It


would not have been born
without him, however.
The race would become
yet another of Tyson's ac-
complishments and contribu-
tions in the fitness/wellness
arenas. He ran a successful
health fair at the Amelia
Island Plantation for years.
He pioneered a walking club
on the island, and brought in
an expert to speak about it.
Tyson was committed to
the benefits of exercise for
everyone regardless of age,
fitness level or motivation. He
saw it as critical to keeping
down the costs of health care
for his clients and the insur- -
ance industry as a whole.
And he tried hard to orches-
trate a new health care facili-
ty for courity school employ-
ees in a last-gasp attempt to
reign in costs.
His contribution to our
community will be everlast-
ing. It is with a sad, tragic
irony that someone who so
capably and tirelessly cam-
paigned for good health
would lose his life to rare dis-
ease like ALS. Tyson died
last month at age 64, still
young at heart.
Yet whenever you see
someone walking or running
or exercising in some other
fashion, they are advancing
his life's work. With each
stride, with each regenerative
breath, with each bead of
sweat, George E. "Ned"
Tyson's spirit lives, and
endures.

advisor who lives on Amelia
Island. He can be reached at

Confident consumers


may spend at


University of Florida
GAINESVILLE Florida's
consumer confidence dipped
only slightly in November after
a large jump in October, por-
tending good news for holiday
retailers as higher levels of opti-
mism remained in effect,
according to a new University of
Florida survey.
"The confidence reading in
November fell only one point
from a revised five-point
increase the month before," said
Chris McCarty, director of UF's
Survey Research Center in the
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. "This sug-
gests that the big increase in
October was not an anomaly,
but a return to a higher level of
confidence, particularly among
Florida's seniors.
"While we attributed some
of this increase to factors such
as the mid-term elections, anoth-
er interpretation is a delayed
return to prevailing levels'of
optimism among seniors prior
to the Gulf oil spill," he said.
It appears that the effect of
the spill on senior citizens last-
ed about a month longer than it
did for those under age 60, a
review of the data over time
shows, McCarty said. The
delayed recovery might be
explained by the fact that many
seniors live along the coast of
Florida, he said.
"Looking ahead, it now
appears Florida consumers may
remain at the current levels of
optimism through the rest of
the year," he said. "As the holi-
day season is upon us, this sug-

WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 8.2010 OPINION News-Leader


VIEWPOINT/STANLEY BUNCH/AMELIA ISLAND


Christmas tree farmer recalls


ole days


T he idea for growing
Christmas trees first
came to me when I
was in forestry
school at the University of
Missouri. The university
owned some acreage south of
Columbia on which the
forestry school grew Scotch
pine for Christmas trees. The
forestry club would sell them
each Christmas in downtown
Columbia.
I first planted 5,000 Scotch
pine trees on my Dad's farm
in Northwest Missouri in
1957, but graduated from the
university that year and came
to Fernandina, so I never har-
vested any of them. Five acres
of Christmas trees in a farm-
ing area always looked odd.
I planted my first
Christmas trees on Amelia
Island, Sycamore Lane, in
1960. They were all eastern
red cedar because they were
native to this area:.Through
the following years, I also
planted a few Arizona cypress,
Leyland cypress, -arid pine
and spruce pind but 95 per-
cent were Eastern red cedar.
Most species do not grow well
in this area buit some people


are allergic to red cedar.
I sold my first Christmas
tree in 1968 to the Florida
National Bank for 25 cents per
foot. It was a 10-foot tree so I .
reaped $2.50. The next year I
sold four trees and it increas-
ed until 1987 when it leveled
off and started to decrease
some due to a lot of competi-
tion from new stores, etc. For
several years the only other
tree sales on the island were *
by the Optimists Club, I
believe. My final year for sell-
ing trees was 2004, for a total
of 36 years.
The most gratifying part of
the venture was seeing the
same people coming back
year after year and getting to
visit with them. We saw four

Christmas Day. This worked
fine as long as we were selling
many trees. My wife usually
handled this during the day
while I was at work. At that
time, she knew everyone in
Fernandina so it gave her a
chance to catch up on all the
latest gossip. She was related
to half the people in
Fernandina at that time.
We had to quit pre-tagging
trees in 1979 primarily due to
one incident. One Saturday
afternoon when the tree patch
was crowded, one lady and
her'son decided all the good
trees were tagged and they
proceeded to yank tags off
most$f the trees, including
ours. I realized what had hap-
peridanid saw the guilty ones
leaving. I quickly re-tagged
and told my oldest son to
staq l guard, as I knew they
would,i-eturn shortly. In about
15 q!pnutes they came wheel-


ing back into the parking lot
The son jumped out and came
running up to a tree they had
de-tagged, and said, "We want
this one." '
When I showed him the
tag on the tree, two jaws
dropped considerably. I in-
formed the lady I did not need
her business and invited her
to leave. Several years later
she returned and all was for-
given,
Another time, some
teenagers from the Nassau-
ville area decided they needed
a tree but had no funds to pay
for it. They made the mistake
of plotting at the high school
where my sons were going.
,That night about 9 p.m. when
they came cruising slowly
down Peters Road with their
lights off, we were waiting.
Since Peters Road is a dead-
end road, they had to turn
around and start back out.
They stopped about midway
of the tree field and got out. At
that time, I fired a one-gun'
salute toward the moon.
Needless to say, they went
back out Peters Road a lot
faster than they came in. No'
more problems. I did have.


My only regret is that I didn't write a book.
You would be surprised at what goes on
between the rows.

one tagged tree go astray one
night and had to do some
quick scouting to come up
with a suitable substitute.
Regardless of the above,
the plusses far outweighed
the minuses.
I always had trees of all
sizes, including several in
excess of 10 feet tall. The
older homes of Fernandina
were a-good market for tall
trees as many have 10-and 11-
foot ceilings. The bed and
breakfast inns were always
good customers, as well as
Amelia Island Plantation.
Sometimes it was difficult to
convince people they should
get a tree over eight-feet tall if
they only have eight-foot ceil-
ings. Trees look small outside,
but start growing when you
get them inside.
In 1981, I started planting
Frazier fir, Douglas fir, blue
and white spruce and eastern
white pine on a few acres in
Haywood County, N.C. I start-
ed hauling trees to Fernan-
dina in 1990 as several of the
newer homeowners did not
care for the cedars. I would
cut the trees on Thanksgiving
Day and get my friend Dewey
Franklin, who had a flatbed
trailer, to haul them back the
day after Thanksgiving. They
were completely covered dur-
i g. the 450-mile trip, which
' enstured a fresh tree.
Most local residents still
preferred the cedar tree since
it wan faore of a tradition. A
big portion of trees were sold
on' the second Saturday before
Christmas, keeping them
ftrfli through the-holidays.
SPeople still ask me today
why Iquit growing Christmas
trees My standard answer is,
"When you get to be 75 years
old, you need to plant some-
thing that matures in six
months instead of six years."
Optimism yields some to
realism. I now have about 350
roses planted. My old cus-
tomers can always come by
and smell the roses.
A lot of my old customers
will spend this Christmas in a
far better place; but for those,
who are still here, I want to
t hank each and every one
again for the Good Ole Days,
and hope you have a Merry

SChristmas gift for commission


A h, Christmas parties, presents,
food, carols, putting up the tree, buy-
ing more lights, TV specials, shop-
ping, sales, struggling to remember
that partially visible three-digit code on the
back of your credit card, hoping the relatives
will leave soon, trying to figure out a different
menu than Thanksgiving's, the hustle, the bus-
tle, the "government is the last thing I'm think-
ing about" time of year. Stressful, yes, but the
pleasure's in the giving, they say, and some
government officials have themselves at the
top of their list.
Consider the city commission's insistence
on moving forward with the non-issue of
changing city election dates. I know, this
seems trivial and you'd much rather be focus-
ing on deciphering that three-digit code, but
the impact on city elections would,-I believe,
be dramatic.
Their proposal goes something like this:
move city elections from April to November,
extending the terms of Commissioner Eric
Childers and Mayor Susan Steger by six
months. City elections would still be annual
events, but would coincide with national, state
and county elections every other year.
Advantages: 1) Every other year the'city
would save between $15,000 and $20,000 by
incorporating city elections with national, state
and county ones, 2) turnout would increase.
Disadvantages: 1) The terms of
Commissioner Childers and Mayor Steger
would be extended by six months. The exten-
sion would mean an additional $6,000 each in
salary and, potentially, other dollars in health
. insurance savings. This term extension and
salary benefit continuance would be put in the
advantages column if you think they're doing a
good job you decide. 2) City issues would be
buried when considered with national, state
and county ones, at least every other year. 3)
Challengers to incumbent city commissioners


would be at a decided disad-
vantage. Name recognition
being so important when it
comes to political success, an
unknown or little known chal-
lenger would be competing
for yard space, public ad
space, newspaper ad space
with a small army of better
D Ainp known incumbents.
Some things to consider
A D when debating this issue:
TACKLE There is no compelling
reason to make the change.
The citizens of
Ron Sapp Fernandina have already
rejected, overwhelmingly,
the idea of extending the terms of commission-
ers. Remember the referendum votes rejected
just two years ago? It follows, then that if vot-
ers rejected term extensions they also rejected
changing election dates
Commissioners cite increasing voter
turnout as their primary reason for wanting to
change the date. Well, voter turnout is depend-
ent on issues, candidates and something called
political efficacy. If local issues are numerous
and controversial, turnout increases. If candi-
dates are energetic and responsible, turnout
increases. If voters feel that their vote counts,
if they feel that they matter in the political deci-
sion-making system, turnout increases.
Concerning turnout, it's important to
remember that every registered voter has the
opportunity to vote and those who choose not
to exercise that democratic essential either (1)
don't care and don't want to be bothered, or
(2) don't like or question the competence of all
the candidates, or (3) are un-motivated by the
issues or (4) have not been energized or moti-
vated by the campaigns.
City elections attract, generally, around 20
percent to 30 percent of the local electorate,


not unlike most local elections around the
country. I like to call these loyalists the "politi-
cal class," they care about the quality of the
candidates and are motivated by the issues;
they do their homework, attend forums and
ask questions. They are there election in and
election out, rain or shine.
It has always been a mystery to me how
increasing turnout numbers, just for the sake
of increasing turnout numbers, was beneficial
to the city. I mean, how does adding another 20
percent to a turnout number -when that 20
percent is made up of people who don't usually
vote in city elections beneficial, especially
when that has only turned out to vote for presi-
dent, or a member of Congress, or governor,
or cabinet member or county commissioner.
Give me the political class the people who
care every time.
The other reason given for changing
dates, saving taxpayer dollars? Please. This
from a commission that increased salaries in a
time of economic crisis, continued the $75,000
a year plus expenses contract with a lobbyist,
voted to spend tons of money on a kiosk sys-
tem for taxing people who want to use the
beach, voted to enact a $6 per month stormwa-
ter tax, voted to privatize profits while keeping
expenditures public at the city marina and on
and on.
This election date change does several
things. It extends the terms and salaries of two
city commissioners, it ensures that city issues
will be overwhelmed by national and state
issues every other year, it increases the advan-
tages incumbent commissioners have over
challengers, it means that a lot of people will
vote who aren't there to vote on city issues and
it devalues the political class all to save
$15,000 every other year.
Christmas, yeah, and ,city commissioners
are giving this gift to themselves.
Ron Sapp is former city commissioner.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


No parking on sidewalk
Last month there was a letter
concerning the ridiculous number
of "No Parking on Sidewalk" signs
installed along Jasmine Street
between Citrona and Jean Lafitte
(13 signs to be exact). Not finished
with the project, this past week the
county sign installers returned and
placed four more signs between
Jean Lafitte and Fletcher Avenue.
That's right, now there are 17 "No
Parking on Sidewalk" signs in less
than one mile of roadway.
But wait, it gets more absurd.
While they were installing the signs,
guess where they parked the coun-
ty truck? That's right smack dab
,on the sidewalk! Is there someone
that the county administrator could
" lose confidence" in over this waste
of taxpayer money?
Tom O'Connell
Fernandina Beach

No pay ises
Freeze government workers'
pay? An obvious step towards some
fiscal responsibility. However, aren't
we missing the point?
Real Florida unemployment is
around 15.9 percent. Our. govern-
ment, with our taxpayer, dollars,
made Goldman Sachs, Bank of
America and many others who not
only took millions of our dollars but
will be holding onto a golden para-
chute when the government starts
to ask for some of our money back.
See 2011- they will cry wolf and ask
for more of our money.
As a realtor and substitute
teacher in Nassau County, I am now
working two jobs to try and make
ends meet. What about a pay freeze?
How about you freeze my income
from 2005 when banks and mort-
gage companies were giving loans
to anyone who could make breath
on a mirror. That doesn't excuse
the realtors, we benefited too. But
making 60 .percent for selling the
same properties that sold in 2005 is
a significant pay cut and for some
realtors, the end of their business.
I would welcome a pay freeze.
Freezing government pay is a
blessing to those of you who receive
it People are unemployed, taking
pay reductions and still trying to
put food on the table.
Shame on those who complain
about still having a job, health insur-
ance and not getting a pay raise this
year or for the next five years.
To find reality, try and get food
in one of the recent Thanksgiving
lines for the homeless. They
deserve a job; and they will take a
pay freeze in a heartbeat.
Paul A. Barnes

$5 million windfall
So Nassau County got the back
taxes from Smurfit Stone they wrote
off when they were in bankruptcy.
Yeah! The county could really use
the funds with the economy so
rough.
So what do we hear they are
going to do with the money? Shore
up the budget that was cut? Hire
back a few of the folks they let go or
eliminated positions of? Maybe pay
down the county debt and improve
the fiscal status? No, the commis-
sioners have a better idea.
Now I can only go by what I read
in the paper ("Library funding intact
for now," Dec. 1) but it seems that
the money is being split between
each of the commissioners to use
for pet projects- $300,000 each. So
what are we going to do? Looks like


ADAM ZYGLIS/THE BUFFALO NEWS


we taxpayers will get a new library
right on Centre Street (the highest
rent area in the county). Lots of
parking and accessible to all.
Anyone do a feasibility study? Cost
analysis as opposed to other loca-
tions? Shucks, the old location of
Sears on Sadler has the parking and
I'm sure the rent is lower.
I did hear some will go for roads,
and that is a real need to catch up
with all the growth. I just hope some
of these folks sit down and think
things over before they rush out to
spend this manna from heaven.
I am waiting for Mr. (Clerik of
Court John) Crawford's ideas on
this too.
I'm sorry but this just seems like
something you would hear about
in Washington (like spend theTARP
money as it comes back from the
banks).

Tax cuts for the wealthy
Here in the U.S. the restructur-
ing of middle-income Americans to
low-income earners is one way cor-
porate America gets better with less
in an economic downturn. This
process is well under way. And a
not unintended consequence of this
is that it helps the target audience
of Steve's Marketplace maintain
their stock portfolios since .busi-
nesses work more efficiently and
profitably with workers who have
been highly productive and now
maintain that productivity in lower
paying jobs.
We also see a similar benefit in
the military, which gets a better sol-
dier. So this is how the U.S.'s real-
ly draconian nearly zero safety net
approach manipulates incomes of
the working middle class and helps
maintain investment profits for the
wealthy in an economic downturn.
I call this America's "Great Leap
Forward."
I remember how bad I had felt
for Heidi Tu and her family. She
told the story of growing up in
China and had experienced first-
hand Chairman Mao's "Great Leap
Forward." Her family was part of
the educated elite that was literally


ripped out of their homes and
shipped.out to the countryside to
work in agriculture for several
years. At that time Heidi's brother
was entering high school, and he
never was able to recover from his
loss of education., Heidi, several.
years younger, missed some school
and she never was able to go to the
university. But somehow luckily she
married a brilliant university stu-
dent and they were shipped out to
Denmark and eventually to the U.S.,.
where, he did post-doc work at
Harvard. Heidi went to night school
and learned to draft on the com-
puter. She was very good. I met her
when she worked on a couple of
my architectural teams in 2002 in
Cambridge, Mass.
So .t6day here our middle-
income families with no safety net,
lost homes and lowered income are
not able to hold out and wait for the
recovery to hire them back into a
reasonable income. Instead the
wealthy experience a great leap for-
ward with continued tax cuts which
buys more stock or goes into sav-
ings but not into the "Marketplace."
With lower revenues in state and
federal coffers, university funding is
cut, so fees at our state universities
are raised. With nearly no dispos-
able incomes many families (most-
ly off island, out of sight and out of
mind) cannot send their kids to uni-
versity, and opt out to either nothing
or to the community college which,
with fearful symmetry, is where
Heidi had learned to draft.

Col. Charles T. Hill is a Vietnam

his 30-year service to his country.
That service included front line oper-

Not long ago he suffered a stroke
and is now paralyzed from the waist
down. Unfortunately, this has hap-
pened to many. He has been in a

real tragedy is that he is a forgotten

.he has virtually no mail, phone calls
or any visitor! This is a tragedy for
anyone, and for an American veter-

Partial toYulee?
I must tell you that I am very
disappointed in the coverage of the
Fernandina Beach Middle School
football team. The team and coach-
es worked very hard this year to
turn a 1-7 2009 season into a 7-1
2010 season, losing only to the St.
Marys Middle School eighth-grade
team. All you reported was a one-
line caption photo of the team
receiving a trophy for being county
champions. I thank you for at least
that
We have one of the best middle
schools in the state both academi-
cally and athletically. FBMS has
been rated an "A" school for the
past 10 years. The girls' volleyball
team won the county championship
this year. There is also soccer, bas-
ketball and track.
If you want to increase your
readership, expanding your cover-
age of the Fernandina schools (mid-
dle and high school) would be a
great place to start. You cannot
help to notice that you seem to be
somewhat partial to Yulee.

Sea p

Ah, a walk on the beach
with waves and wind blowing
over the Gulf Stream to our
sheltered shores, what could
be. more interesting than this?
A day like this is a time to
hunt for treasures from
across the world.
When storms and near-
hurricanes ravage the distant
Caribbean, all kinds of things
show up on the beach. It's a
good time to hunt for sea
glass, those colored'bits of
weathered glass, all smooth
and polished from their stint
at sea. On this particular day,
once I noticed the condition
of the sea, I began to survey
the tide line along my walk,
looking for surprises.
First, of course, I noticed
the mats of sargassum weed,
brownish green floating
plants that define the
Sargassum Sea east of us. My
first course of action was to
carefully lift the clumps to see
what creatures had hitch-
hiked in with them.

the area came over to contest
it.
Young sea turtles spend
their formative years resting
in these rafts of weed, and for-
aging on the critters that float
along with them. Sometimes
hatchling sea turtles wash
back in the sargassum weed,
and there they remain, too
weak to attempt another crawl

Along with different types

some more exotic treasures

with Cuban logos added com-
plexity to the'imagined story.
But, alas, these intact bot-
tles were the only type of "sea

do not disintegrate into beau-
tiful colored shards, like glass


does. No, plastic has a life of
its own, apart from the natu-
ral wd'ild.And it's every-
where?'
Pity the poor sea turtles
that encounter. these floating
plastic bags and think they
are jellyfish. Not even a sea
turtle can digest a plastic bag,
although I'ri sui-e they
instinctively do not know this
and it doesn't deter them
from trying.' Likewise, pity
the unwary fish, dolphins and
other 'redatory marine ani-
mal that might make similar
mistakes, with similar deathly
consequences.
And pity, too, the beach
gleaners like me on the
shores of our world, looking
for treasures and finding only
non-decomposable garbage
from the Earth's far corners.
Yesifdolks,-the days of sea
glas-.areover. ,
And the reason hit me. We
rarely use glass anymore,
glass that used to fall to the
ocean's bottom and shatter
into beautiful shards that
make fine souvenirs.
Worldwide our drinks and
commodities are packaged
more often in plastic than in
glass, hnd actual bits of sea
glass on the beach are becom-
ing scarcer than doubloons.
No, now we only have sea
plastic.


Plastic harms marine life,
litters the beach and lasts
intact nearly forever. It's a sad
legacy we are leaving on
Earth, in these, the times of
plastic. Oh for the days gone
by, when sea glass ruled, but


these times, sadly, are coming
to a close.

Casting nets in 'The Ocean Under the Moon


ANGILA I)AUGI ITRY
News Leader


It's a story as old as Ihe
,sea itself, written for modern
times: a man struggling to
make a living from the bounty
of the sea, which as life
itself does slowly reveals its
hidden mysteries that chail-
Sle'nge and transform him into
the personal he (event ally
becomes.
Local optometrist Tony
Stubits has wrillen such a
novel, called The Ocean Under
the Moon, with a special twist:
lie protagonist was born,
lives and works as a shrimper
in Fernandina Beach.
lThe story is about Nick
Stamos, a third-generation
shrimper, and his difficulties
making a living while facing
thie same economic and per-
sonal trials many in this coun-
try are now facing.
Although Stubits was
never a shrimnixr himself, he
says the main character in the
book has niiny of the same
experiences Stubils had
growing up in Fernandina
Beach.
"'The story is complelely
fiction," Stubits says. "My
father worked in the paper
mill. I was born in 1956. My
own timeline captures the his-
tory of Amelia Islaird."
Influenced by the'writing
of Ernest Hemingway and.
John Steinbeck, Stubits says
his latest novel is a combina-


tion of The Old Man and the
Sea and The Grapes of Wrath.
"The Grapes of Wrath was
about the Great Depression,
and now we have the Great
Recession," Stubits said.
He says both his first and
latest novels were written as a
practical solution to the pre-.
diclable "midlife crisis."
"I turned 40 and wrote a
book instead of getting a
sports car or a mistress," he
quips. His first novel, written
in 2001 and called Unnatural
Selection, he describes as a
medical thriller about HMOs
and how corrupt they have'
become. The book, he says,
did well locally.
Calling shrimping a
"Sisyphean" task, Stubits says
he wrote his latest book in
part to make the public aware
of the plight of local
shrimpers. "I used shrimping
as a metaphor for what's hap-
pening in America today," he
says.-
"Shrimp has surpassed
tuna as the most popular
seafood in America," Stubits
said. "But 90 percent is
imported, and the vast majori-
ty of that is farm-raised. It


used to be a luxury food
because it was so hard to
catch." Now, he says, shrimp
farmers can bring in 6,000 to
18,000 pounds of shrimp per
acre. This has driven down
the price of the popular shell-
fish.
But farm-raised shrimp,
Stubits says, is not only inferi-
or in taste to wild caught
shrimp; it is also often inject-
ed with algaecides and antibi-,
otics.
The problem is exacerbat-
ed, he said, by the cost of
diesel, ice, nets, dockage,
insurance and other necessi-
ties for shrimpers to catch
shrimp in the traditional way.
Stubits got the idea for the
novel, he says, while on vaca-
tion with his family about four
years ago. It was then that he
heard aSantana/Rob Thomas
song with the line "Just like
the ocean under the moon,"
that spurred his imagination.
"That's a good image,"
Stubits says. "Beautiful, but
mysterious and dangerous. I
also wanted to say something
about the time and place I
grew up in. Before the reces-
sion, there was already a way


The story is about Nick Stamos, a third-
generation shrimper, and his difficulties
making a living in Fernandina Beach.


of life that was going away."
Stubits says it took him
about two years, off and on, to
write the book, and one year
of editing. His writing method
was to start early in the morn-
ing, before going to work,
while he was still in a semi-
subconscious dream state. "I
wake up thinking about
things, then I have to go write
them down," he says. But he
thought about the novel for a
long time before he began
writing it.
Writing fiction was a bit of
a challenge for Stubits, whose
career is based on science,
because he had to access the
creative side of his brain. "I
had to thihk about if for a long
time," he says. "A lot of peo-
ple do outlines. I don't
because I don't know where
the story is going to go. I do
rough drafts, and then free
thinking."
"The book has local set-
tings that local people will
enjoy," Stubits said. He also
used some local characters in
the novel that may recognize
themselves, as well as a few
real names.
Stulits' book is available at
Books Plus; 107 Centre St., .
and can, also be ordered from
www.a mazon.com as a regu-
lar book or as Kindle e-book.
Stubits will be signing
copies f .The Ocean Under the
Moon at Books Plus from 3-6
p.m. Saturday.

Time to get a flu shot


TALLAHASSEE In obser-
vance of National Influenza
Vaccination Week, the Florida
Department of Health is encour-
aging Floridians to get their
annual influenza vaccination if
they haven't already.
Even active healthy people
can get the flu, which can lead
to serious complications. The
disease can also be costly in
terms of lost wages and reduced
productivity, time off work to
care for yourself or to stay home
with a sick family member. Each
year, more than 200,000 people
nationally are hospitalized from
- or due to the flu, including an
average of 20,000 children
younger than 5 years of age.
"The flu vaccine is a widely
available safe and effective pri-
mary step in preventing flu in
our communities," said State
Surgeon General Ana M.


Viamonte Ros. "We encourage
everyone to take the opportu-
nity to protect themselves, their
families, communities and visi-
tors to the Sunshine State from
the flu by getting vaccinated."
Vaccination against the
influenza virus is recommended
for everyone age six months
and older and it is especially
important for healthcare
providers to be vaccinated.
Influenza viruses are constant-
ly changing, and each year, the
most prevalent types of viruses
in global circulation are also
likely to change. Further, these
viruses can affect people dif-
ferently based on their body's
ability to fight off and recover
from infection. For this reason,
vaccination is recommended
each year in order to confer pro-
tectionr against the types and
strains of influenza viruses that


people are most likely to
encounter.
Although everyone is at risk
for seasonal influenza, there are
some groups at greater risk for
serious complications following
infection, including:
people 65 years and older
children younger than 5,
but especially those less than 2
years old
people with certain chron-
ic health conditions, such as
asthma and COPD, diabetes,
heart disease, some neurologi-
cal conditions, and other spe-
cific conditions, and
pregnant women.
For a full list, including a list-
ing of those who should not be
vaccinated, see "People at High
Risk of Developing Flu-Related
Complications" at
www.cdc.gov/flu/about/dis-
ease/high_risk.htm.

AIDS quilt a memorial to lives lost

AIDS quilt panels will be on display at Solid Rock Church of
God, Pinewood Drive, Yulee, Dec. 11-12, 1-3 p.m.; and the


he-. li AIDS Memorial
Quilt i anll impor-l
tant symbol for
those who have lost
loved ones to the disease, as
well is a constant reiieinder of
the need for continued vigi-
lance against the deadly virus.-
One panel from th(e entire
AIDS Memorial Quilt which
now weighs more than 30,000
tons was displayed Friday
and Saturday at the Jolhn
D'Agnese Coiintemporary Art
Gallery on Centre Street.
The quill exhibit -spon-
sored by the Coalition for the
Reduction/Eliminiiation of
Ethnic Disparities in Health,
or CREED was especially
poignant for ,:!. Cy ownerl-
John D'Agnese, because( lie
was involved in the discovery
of the AIDS virus in the early
1980s.
D'Agnese, who now runs a
cruise ship consultation serv-
ice, was working as director of
operations lor the quarantine
program at the federal
Centers for Disease Control in
Atlanta when a strangely syn-
drome be-gan causing much
consternation in the medical
community.
I)Agnese says epidemiolo-
gists became concerned about
a huge increase in a rare type
of pnleumonia, called plneuilo-
cystic carinii, that had been
showing up in seaport towns
such as Los Angeles and New
York in 1981. '... idll, this
type of pneumonia only pre-

immune response, such as
those under chemotherapy.
)'Agnese says one of the
only FIA-approved drugs to
treat the condition was penta-
modine, and that was the first
treatment for what eventually
came to be known as AIDS.
Poneumocystic carinii was
found to be one of many
opxportunistic infections
caused by the AIDS virus,
which breaks down the body's
immune system.
D Agnese, who retired
from the CDC, later started a
consulting service for cruise
ships, doing environmental
audits to determine if the
ships' crews meet U.S. public
health standards before
...,i,-: into United States
ports. He moved to
Fernandina Beach 15 years
ago. 'he D'Agnese art gallery
is -.. ..ll, permanent
exhibit of the paintings of his
wife Helen, who died 11 years

D'Agnese joined CREED
when it was founded three
years ago by Jennett Wilson-
Baker, and is the organiza-
tion's vice chairman.

Third World countries, and
recently returned from
Nigeria.
Wilson-Baker started
CREED because, she says,
the community needed a
"grass-roots organization to
talk about health issues," such
as diabetes, blood pressure,
stroke, cancer and HIV.
The organization also spon-
sors free screening physical
for school-age children. She
said she is proud that Nassau
County is "beginning to recog-
nize the problem with HIV,
because Jacksonville is so
close, and HIV isn't going any-
where."
Justin Bell of the Northeast
Florida Chapter of The
NAMES Project Foundation -
which hosts and maintains
quilt panels helped bring
the AIDS quilt exhibition to
Nassau County. In addition to
the quilt at D'Agnese's gallery,
several local churches will be
exhibiting quilt panels during
December in recognition of
World AIDS Awareness
Month.
According to Bell, each
individual panel on the AIDS
Memorial Quilt has an identi-
fying number, and it can take
up to four years to get a panel
added to the quilt. Panels in
memorial to AIDS victims
can be created by anyone
from family members to pro-
fessional artists, and can be
made using appliques, paints,
stencils, collages or photos
transferred to iron-on patches.
Individual panels measure 3
by 6 feet.
The NAMES Project
Foundation is based in

Auburns Newton is innocent untilproven guilty


T he NCAA last week declared Auburn
QB Cameron Newton free of any
wrongdoing in a "pay-for-play"
scheme ... for now.
Investigations revealed that Cam Newton's
father, Cecil Newton, and an agent reportedly
solicited a payment of $180,000 from
Mississippi State University for his son to sign
with the Bulldogs out of junior college. But the
investigation has yet to uncover any evidence
that money changed hands or that Cam .
Newton or Auburn had any knowledge of the
scheme.
While this seems like a done deal, the fol-
lowing statement released by the NCAA leads
me to believe otherwise:
"According to facts of the case agreed upon
by Auburn tUi'.. *i i,0 and the NCAA enforce-
ment staff, the student-athlete's father and an
owner of a scouting service worked together.
to actively market the student-athlete as a part
of a pay-for-play scenario in return for
Newton's commitment to attend college and


play football. NCAA rules
(Bylaw 12.3.3) do not allow
individuals or entities to rep-
resent a prospective student-
:ahi, for compensation to a
school for an athletic scholar-
ship."
In other words, there was
an infraction committed in
the dame of Cam Newton and
somebody will util.,.bt. .I11
SPORTS eventually pay. But since
there isn't 1. 1 i ml'i, any evi-
TALK dence the player knew about
JOHN L. it, he is eligible to play.
Southeastern Conference
CRAWFORD Commissioner Mike Slive
....- told reporters his league sup-
ported the ruling, stating "we
should not be in the business of sending mes-
sages on the back of a student-athlete."
And he is right.
As much as it pains South Carolina fans,


whose team was on the losing end of a
Newton-led beatdown in Atlanta Saturday, the
NCAA made the right call. Because as unlikely
as it seems that Newton had no idea what his
father was doing during his recruitment,
nobody has any proof otherwise.
Sitting Cam Newton now would be like
issuing a jail sentence to a burglary suspect
based on circumstantial evidence. The investi-
gation will continue. Everything will come out
in the wash when it's over ...
[.-,'.' -n.rc ,ii,.-i or not, it seems as if the
Tigers are a team of destiny. Just when South
Carolina made it a ballgame by pulling within
seven points at 21-14 with seconds to go in the
first half Saturday, Newton completed a Hail
Mary to regain a 14-point lead. Not only did
that likely send a shiver of doubt into the
minds of Gamecock players heading into the
half, it forced USC head coach Steve Spurrier
to shy away from his run game and superstar
freshman RB Marcus Lattimore and to rely
heavily on the arm of junior QB Steven Garcia


to catch up in the second half. Twenty-eight
points later, Auburn managed the most points
ever in the SEC championship game with a 56-
17 victory. As talented as Oregon has been
this season, it's hard to fathom the Tigers los-
ing to the Ducks when you consider Auburn's
last two performances and that fate seems to
be on the side of the Tigers...
Florida State might have lost to Virginia
Tech in the ACC championship game Satur-
day, but at least the Seminoles were playing.
It's never enjoyable for fans to watch their
team lose, especially when there is a title at
stake. But the fact that they found themselves
competing for a title is positive in itself.
When the dust settles, I'm sure FSU fans
will be more than content with the way 2010
shook out. After all, beating Florida and Miami
in the same season for the mythical state title
might be more important than an ACC crown,
at least in terms of bragging rights.

Bowden amongHall of Fame inductees


This year's Gator Bowl
Hall of Fame induction class
includes former Florida State
Head Coach Bobby Bowden
and former Big East
Conference Commissioner
Michael Tranghese.
"The Gator Bowl is
extremely proud to honor
these two outstanding individ-
uals whose contributions
have'had such a positive
impact in the world of college
athletics," said chairman
Stephen Tremel..
Both will be inducted at
the Gator Bowl Coaches
Luncheon and Hall of Fame
Induction Dec. 31 at the Hyatt
Regency Hotel at noon.
Bowden is known as much
for his affable.charm as he is
for his championship teams.
Having coached young men
in seven decades, he became
the second winningest coach
in major college football histo-
ry.
Bowden guided Florida
State University to more than
300 victories, two national
championships, 12 Atlantic
Coast Conference titles, fin-
ishing in the top five in the
country in 14 straight sea-
sons, and led the Seminoles
to bowl games in 28 consecu-
tive seasons during his 34-
year tenure.
Bowden appeared in Gator
Bowl five times and was victo-
rious in each matchup. He
brought his Seminoles to
Jacksonville an additional five
times since 1999 and won
each neutral site matchup
against BYU, Duke, Alabama
and Colorado. His team was
also victorious against
Virginia Tech in the inaugural
ACC championship game
held in Jacksonville.
The patriarch of college
football's most famous coach-
ing family, Bowden remains
heavily involved in the

Athletes; annually awarding

BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
Former FSU head coach
Bobby Bowden during a -
press conference before
his final Gator Bowl ap-
pearance. Bowden will be
inducted into the Hall of
Fame Dec. 31.

Award to a student-athlete for
achievement on and off the
field, including his conduct as
a faith model in the communi-
ty. Bowden was inducted into
the College Football Hall of
Fame in 2006. He and his wife
of 61 years, Ann, live in
Tallahassee.
Tranghese, the Big East
conference's first full-time
employee, served as commis-
sioner of the conference from
1990-2009. He was the leader
behind the formation of Big
East football, which began in
1991. ,
An acknowledged industry
leader in television negotia-
tion and production, Tran-
ghese was a central figure in
every television negotiation in
the league's history. All of
these accomplishments have
been achieved in an NCAA
environment that has been in
a continual state of change.
Tranghese moved into the
commissioner's chair June 21,
1990, and became an active
leader nationally upon his
appointment. During the 2002
and '03 football seasons, he
was the lead administrator of


the Bowl Championship
Series, the group of major
conferences and bowls that
produces college football's
national championship game
and the best possible bowl
matchups.
After establishing Big East
football, Tranghese guided
the league through a critical
time that many observers felt
could have resulted in a per-
manent split among its mem-r
bers. In March, 1994, the con-
ference added football
members Rutgers University
and West Virginia University
as its 11th and 12th full-time
members and maintained its
overall structure.
He was also instrumental
in establishing a 15-year part-
nership with the Gator Bowl
Association that began with
the Jan. 1, 1996, Gator Bowl
game and continued through
the 2010 Gator Bowl game
Jan. 1.
Tranghese's career in col-
lege athletics began at Ameri-
can International College in
his hometown of Springfield,
Mass. He was the sports
information director at Provi-
dence College, where he gen-.
erated publicity for the nation-
ally successful Friar teams of
the 1970s under Dave Gavitt
As the media attention on
Eastern college basketball
and the growth of sports
events on television in-
creased, Gavitt and Tran-
ghese were prepared to take
advantage. Gavitt became the
Big East's first commissioner
in 1979 and served until 1990,
when Tranghese assumed the
helm.
Under Tranghese, the Big
East championship slate
expanded from seven men's
championships in 1979 to 24
men's and women's champi-
onships today. Tranghese is a
1965 graduate of St. Michael's
College in Winooski, Vt. He is
married to Susan
Huntemann.

Davies captures men's Wednesday, Friday 6litz titles


Ernie Banks, the former Chicago Cubs
shortstop, was so enthusiastic about the game
that when he came to the ballpark he would
sometimes say that it was a great day to play a
double-header.
List week the weather was a bit chilly and
even windy but both Wednesday and Friday
were great days to be on the golf course
although the scoring was not always the great-
est.
Wednesday saw a turnout of 46 players to
participate in the blitz at the Fernandina
Beach Golf Club. Kim Davies had a good
round of 78 and plus 10 points to take individ-
ual honors.
Price Poole had the round of the day with a
one-under-par 72 and plus 8 to come in sec-
ond. There was a tie for third place at plus 6
between Rudy Campanale (94) and Larry
Gallo (85).
With Davies (plus 10) and Gallo (plus 6) on
the same team that included Ed Lormand (97,
plus 2) and Jim Raffone (91, minus 2), the
team easily won first place with a plus 16.
Second place at plus 10 went to the team of
I.ind Swenson (85, plus 5), Jim Dunphy (87,
plus 3), Tony Lopez (83, plus 2) and Jim
McFarland (98, even).
Although Campanale came in at plus 6, he
did riot receive any help from his teammates
Claude Hartley (95, minus 1), Ron Peterson
(89, minus 2) and Charles Benefield (97,
minus 3), but even was good enough for the
team to finish in third place.
Fourth place at minus 1 went to the five-
man team of Tony Jarzyna (87, plus 4), Sam
DuBose (94, plus 3), Bob'Dorsey (84, minus
2), Dick Peterson (104, minus 2) and Tom
Gray (89, minus 4).
On Friday 56 players took part in the blitz
with Kim Davies having another good round of
76 and plus 9 points to once again take individ-
ual honors. Doug Wo'lfe was second with an 86

plus 6. There was a tie for third place at plus 5
between Walter Boyd (85), Jack Harrison
(86), Charles Himmelheber (76), Harry
Kegler (85) and Johnny Scarboro (75).
Davies' plus 9 and Himmelheber's plus 5
added up to plus 14 and first-place winning
score as the plus two of Larry Brauda (81) was
offset by the minus 2 of N. Powell (87).
Second place went to a team with no minus-
es as Boyd (plus 5), Troy Therriault (94, plus
3), Fred Boatright (80, plus 1) and Sam
DuBose (95, even) at plus 9.
Wolfe's plus 6 along with Harry Gibbs (89,
plus 4) enabled the team that included Dick
Peterson (104, minus 2) and Ron Therriaul.t
(91, minus 3) to win third place at plus 5.
Fourth place at plus 2 went to Harrison
(plus 5), Bill Larrabee (90, plus 1), Scott
Adams (87, even) and Charles Kicklighter (86,
minus 4).

Sf Woods had about 15 feet to extend the playoff, but it veered just

first time in his career lost a tournament he led by at least 3 shots going into the

best PGA Tour finish in 2010 was a tie for fourth.


One of the most embarrassing
things the amateur golfer does is to
-" mis-hit a bunker shot and watch it
not get over the lip and roll back
into the bunker. Most of the time,
our mindset is to just get up to the
'. ball and hack away quickly to get
out of the bunker once and for all. However, did
you know that you can use a rake to smooth the
bunker out before you take that second bunker
shot? Rule 13-4 in the Rules of Golf speaks on the
matter and states that as long as you do not
improve your lie, raking the bunker is acceptable.
Now, let's say the ball rolled right back into the
general vicinity of where your first shot was hit
from. In this case, you can not rake the sand
because the lie would be improved or you would
be assisted in making your next stroke.


Rickie Fowler was named the PGATour's Rookie of the Year on Sunday.At 21, he is the
second-youngest player to eam the distinction. The only player to be younger was Tiger
Woods, at 20, in 1996. "I guess I'm one year behind Tiger," Fowler said. "But looking to try. --
and make up some ground." Fowler's rookie season included a pair of runner-up finishes and
a selection to the Ryder Cup team. He also had seven top-10 finishes in 28 starts. Jim Furyk,
a three time winner in 2010, edged out compatriots Matt Kuchar, Dustin Johnson and Phil
Mickelson and South African Ernie Els for PGA Tour Player of the Year. The elite quintet was nominated by
the tour's player advisory council and player directors last month before the winner was determined by tour
member voting. Furyk said, "I had a great season but you never know how it's going to wind up at the end. I
feel honored with all.the great players on that trophy that have had that honor before. I am humbled by it"

OUTDOORS


W'.D\L-SDAY. DECEMBER 8. 2010/NEWS-LEADER


NOAA



Administration
recently delayed
closing a massive bottom area
of the South Atlantic Ocean to
all types of bottom fishing for
six months.
Amendment 17A was the
result of the delayed closure
to the Fishery Management
Plan for the snapper-grouper
fishery and was based on a
2008 stock assessment.
Studies showed red snapper
fishing in these deep waters
was so over-fished that a total
closure to bottom fishing was
needed. Hooked red snapper
would suffer a high mortality
rate when released in their
deep-water habitat.
The red snapper fishery
became a main topic with fed-
eral fisheries management as
it became apparent a huge
lack of sound data on red
snapper allowed the fishery
to reach a crisis point. NOAA
was a day behind in putting in
place new federal conserva-
ti6n laws, such as total fishing
closures.
"We are relieved that
NOAA heeded our call to
review the science before
implementing'such a devas-
tating management measure
on the South Atlantic," said
Chester Brewer, chairman of
CCA's National Government
Relations Committee. 'This is
another example of how
important it is for groups like
the Coastal Conservation
Association to be engaged in
the management process,
especially when things aren't
going well.
"However, the root of this
problem still exists in federal
fisheries law and we will very
likely find ourselves in this
kind of predicament again in
the near future without a leg-
islative fix to prevent it."
"This entire episode has
been traumatic for anglers
and. the businesses that
depend on them all along the
South Atlantic coast. The sup-
posed best science that we
had two years ago nearly shut
down the entire South
"Atlantic to bottom fishing and
,,-today it appears we don't
need that. Yet we still have a
closed red snapper fishery
and a great deal of confusion
and mistrust in the recre-
ational angling community,"
said Brewer. "No other
wildlife resources are man-
aged in such a haphazard
manner. We need FCTA to


delays

maintain our
conservation
principles
while
addressing
the chronic
lack of basic
information
in marine
eOUTDOORS fisheries
OUTDOORS manage-
.... ment. We
Terroldacoss don't need
another train
wreck like this one."
During a recent fun day of
bottom fishing, local fisher-
men, including Mark and
Adam Peppler and local char-
ter captain Benny Hendrix,
fished the FA live bottom area
and, by 10:45 a.m., had
hooked and released 18 keep-
er-size red snapper and kept
six legal gag grouper.
Bottom fishing has never.
been so good and many char-
ter and recreational fisher-
men are still wondering why .
the NOAA is still restricting
the harvesting of red snapper.
"I may have to move my
charter boat south for the
winter and charter for sail-
fish," Hendrix said. "I just
don't see people paying for a
charter to catch sea bass."
Gag, red and black
grouper season,will be closed
beginning Jan. 1 and will
reopen May 1. Bottom fisher-
men will be able to keep 15
black sea bass per day meas-
uring at least 12 inches in
length. Flounder measuring
at least 12 inches in length
with a bag limit of 10 per day
can also be targeted at off-
shore fish havens.
"Another problem off-
shore fishermen face is the
large schools of red snapper
are thinning out the baitfish
schools," Hendrix said. "We
are also seeing a lot of large
pelagic sharks showing up at
offshore fish havens, where
they are finding slow swim-
ming red snapper an easy tar-
get."
Capt. George Strait oper-
ates the party boat "Mayport
Princess" out of Mayport and
has had to adjust his party
boat fishing due to the red
snapper ban.
"Red snapper fishing has
been the main attraction for
our customers, until the red
snapper ban took.place,"
Strait said. 'Today we have to
target other species, includ-
ing cobia, grouper, sea bass,
flounder, barracuda, kingfish
and triggerfish. When you

Nassau Wildlfe Maagm tArea
If you are looking for a place to hunt this
fall, you still have a chance to get a recre-
ational use permit for the Nassau Wildlife
Manage-ment Area near Callahan. All users
must possess a Nassau recreational use per-
mit to hunt on this area. Nassau WMA is a
still-hunt-only area, but hunters may use bird
clogs during the migratory bird and water-
fowl hunting seasons. For those willing to
pay $385, Nassau WMA provides hunting
opportunities during eight months of the
year.
The general gun season is through Jan. 9,
2011; small game is from Jan. 10 through
March 6, 2011; spring turkey season runs
fi-om 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 permits. Fees collect-
ed from these permits supplement the com-


pensation for private land-owners, keeping
their lands open to public hunting. Except for
hunting, permit holders and their spouses or
dependent children may participate in other
activities on designated WMAs. Only permit
holders and one dependent child (under age
16) may hunt. If spouses or more than one
dependent child (under age 16) wish to hunt,
they must purchase a recreational use per-
mit. Recreational use permits also include a
management area permit when hunting pub-
lic lands not in the recreational use program.

One-woman show brings Emily Dickinson to life


S sometimes sitting and watch-
ing yet another amazing com-
munity theater production, I
have vague yearnings to be
on stage. It is so amazing to watch
someone you know transfOrm them-
selves into another person in anoth-
er place or time. Reality steps in as
those who have been there and done
that share the enormous commit-
ment of time and practice it takes to
"pull it off." Producing a perform-
ance with a full cast of characters,
careful costuming, coordinated
sound and lighting is breathtaking in
its complexity.
Even more amazing is the intense
: focus it takes to present a one
woman or one man show. The per-
son on stage must be in perfect har-
mony with the person doing the
coaching and the person they seek
to portray. The end result must be a


sense that the audi-
ence is truly listen-
ing to that person
4? sharing their most
. inner thoughts,
essence and being.
Sinda Nichols
has long dreamed
of "doing" Emily
Dickinson and her
FROM dream comes true
THE as she brings us
Emily Dickinson to
PORCH meet, share and
-.... savor. "It was a role
Dickie I had coveted since
Anderson adolescence, ever
Anderson since the night my
parents came home from having
seen Julie Harris perform it." She
remembers her mother comment-
ing, "This is the perfect' play for you!
You're just like her."


Ron Kurtz, director of 'The Belle
of Amherst," is well-known for his
many talents on and behind the
Amelia Community Theatre stage.
He is the whole package consum-
mate performer, focused director
and a big picture kind of guy. He
dates his passion for theater back to
a childhood spent in postwar
Germany and being exposed to
many unfamiliar things. He remem-
bers feeling far away from all that
was real to him and watching a
Punch and Judy puppet show that he
recalls gave him a welcome sense of
context. An "aha" moment for a
young boy that he still remembers.
He shares "'I hopp Sinda's singular
performance brings to our audience
all the joy.and rapture of my Punch
and Judy puppet show, so many
miles and years ago."
Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (Dec.


10, 1830-May 15, 1886) is one of
America's most famous and enigmat-
ic poets. Dickinson wrote more than
1,800 poems, only a few of which
were published during her lifetime.
Her life is one of great mystery
and unanswered questions. Many
have tried to uncover the truth about
this very private and, often, strange
woman with such enormous talent.
Join Sinda, Ron and Emily as they
offer "The Belle of Amherst" to the-
atergoers
Dec. 10 and 11 at 8 p.m. at Amelia
Community Theatre, 209 Cedar St.,
Fernandina Beach. Tickets are $15.
Call 261-6749 or visit www.belleo-
famherst.org.
Dickie Anderson welcomes your
comments. Books are available at
local book and gift stores or online at

Pajama party
Comfort and creativity
were the themes of the
morning Nov. 26 as res- .
idents and visitors took
to Centre Street with a
decidedly more relaxed
approach to the biggest
shopping day of the
year. In what has
become an annual tradi-
tion, families and
friends shopped,
snacked and enjoyed
the seasonably warm
weather in their paja-
mas. There was no
question who
Fernandina Beach resi-
dents Rina, Matthew (a
freshman at UF) and
Nathan Pascual were
pulling for in the next
day's Florida/Florida
