Muriel E. Shaw
Muriel E. Shaw, a Nashua-born teacher and
community activist, died Wednesday at the Exeter
Hospital in Exeter, New Hampshire after a brief
illness. She was 86 years old. She had been living
in Exeter since 2007, when she moved to Exeter
from Nashua.
Uitil she moved to Exeter in 2007, she had
been active in community affairs all her life and
she broke new ground for women. She was the
first director of social services for the Nashua
Head Start Program in 1968, the first woman to
serve as director of the Nashua United Way, and
the first woman appointed as a Trustee of the
Nashua Public Library, where
she served for 21 years. She
always felt that, aside from her
-. family, her greatest contribution
%2 to the world had been as a
.-.> teacher. She worked as a teacher
at various times for nearly 50
years. In the 1970s, she began to
focus on English as a Second
Language (ESL), became the first ESL teacher at
the Nashua Adult Learning -Center, and taught
there for 17 years.
Muriel Evans Shaw was born in Nashua on
April 15, 1924, the oldest daughter of Walter E
Evans, an executive at the Nashua Corporation
and a Nashua Police Commissiorier, and the for-:
mer Doris McNayr, who had immigrated with
her mother to the Nashua area from Prince
Edward Island. Muriel was the second of their four
children: the late Robert L Evans of New London,
New Hampshire, Carlton E Evans of Warwick,
New York, and the late Priscilla C. Evans of
Nashua. The Evans' first home was on Burke
Street on Crown Hill. In 1930, when Muriel was
six years old, the house burned to the ground in
the great Crown Hill fire. The family lost every-
thing except for one mirror and one antique doll.
They roomed with friends until making a new
home on Cushing Avenue in the North End.
Like so many of her generation, Muriel's early
years were colored by the Great Depression and
the advent of World War II. When the war broke
out in 1941, she was a student at the Mary A
Burnham School in Northampton, Massachusetts,
from which she graduated in 1942. That same
year, she matriculated at Connecticut College in
New London, Connecticut, where she majored in
sociology and ecotlomics and graduated in 1946.
In April 1949, after additional education and
work in Boston and Nashua, she married Frederic
E. Shaw (1914-1997), a Nashuan who had returned
to his home city after serving as a naval aviator dur-
ing the war. Frederic had joined the J.E McElwain
Shoe Company, which had factories and offices in
Nashua, and he rose later to become Vice-
President of Purchasing. Muriel and Frederic
had in common that they were delivered by the
same Nashua physician, ten years apart.
In 1953, the couple purchased a house and
six acres of land on Manchester Street, north of
Greeley Park. Muriel later said she felt as if she
had moved to a beautiful small farm, with a bub-
bling country brook, a rolling field, and sur-
rounded by forest. Soon there were children to
raise-Frederic, Jr. in 1950, David in 1951, Martha
in 1954, and John in 1959.
Muriel always saw herself as a homemaker of
the 1950s, but she also had a longing to, as she said,
"make a difference" not just for her own family, but
for the community. An article in the Nashua
Telegraph in 1989 about Muriel's ESL teaching
quotes Judite Ferreira, one of Muriel's ESL stu-
dents who spoke only Portuguese: "I didn't see a
light anywhere. Without the language, I could not
do anything." Judite said, with Muriel's help in
language, she was able to build one of Nashua's
most successful bakeries of the time. Later, Muriel
joined a theatrical troupe that toured the nation
demonstrating the plight of the English illiterate.
In a 1991 ceremony, citing Muriel's lifelong
commitment to education and art in Nashua,
Mayor James Donchess named Muriel as the
fourth recipient of the Mayor's Award for Superior
Achievement in Arts and Letters. As another trib-
ute to her part in the life of Nashua, the artist
James Aponovich included Muriel's picture in his
renowned Yankee Flyer Diner Mural, located
across from City Hall. She is the woman in the red


Mustang convertible (a real car owned by
Frederic). She served in positions at many com-
munity organizations, including the Burbank Fund
for the arts, the Kings Daughters Benevolent
Association, the Good Cheer Society, the Nashua
Garden Club, and as a docent at the Currier
Gallery of Art in Manchester. She was a lifelong
member of the First Church, Congregational,
United Church of Christ, Nashua.
Although always active in the community,
Muriel always felt that her first duty was to her
family. She and Frederic remade the Manchester
Street house and, every summer cultivated an
acre of the field to grow organic vegetables. She


pursued watercolor painting. As the children grew
up and left home for schools and colleges, she and
Frederic found more time to spend at the Evans
summer cottage at Drake's Island, Maine, a place
she treasured, and in the cold months, at a beaclh-
side house they purchased at Fernandina Beach,
Florida. After Frederic's death in 1997, she con-
tinued to spend every winter at Fernandina Beach,
returning to New Hampshire in the spring.
During her life, she faced many health prob-
lems, but she became almost legendary among
her family and many devoted friends for the way
she bounced back after each one and refused to
give up an active life. She finally gave up skiing in
her late 60s after breaking her hip getting off a
chair lift. Her last ice skating outing was in her 70s,
when she broke her knee skating at Boston
Common. Through it all, as her close friend, John
Dearborn, pointed out, she kept her good humor
and was always able to laugh at her own medical
troubles.
Members of her family include her one sur-
viving sibling and his wife, Carlton F Evans and
Janice Evans of Warwick, New York; her late
brother Robert's wife, Joan Evans of New London,
New Hampshire; her four children and their
spouses, Frederic E. Shaw, Jr. and Judy K Shaw
of Atlanta, Georgia, David E. Shaw and Glenn
Close of Portland, Maine and Bedford, New York,
Martha J. Shaw of New York City,'and John R.
Shaw of Hampton Falls, New Hampshire; ten
grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; five
nephews, and three nieces.
Visiting hours were held Sunday, December
19, 2010, 4-6 pm at Davis Funeral Home, One
Lock Street, Nashua. A Memorial Service was
held Monday, December 20, 2010, 2 pm at The
First Church (Congregational) U.C.C., One
Concord Street, Nashua. Friends and Family were
invited to attend.-Interment prayers followed at
Edgwood Cemetery in Nashua.

Wildfire danger in county


'very high,' limit burning


A lack of rainfall and dry
conditions have created a
"very high" fire danger index
for Nassau County, the Florida
Division of Forestry said
.Monday.
"Fires start easily from all
causes and immediately after
ignition, spread rapidly and
increase quickly in intensity,"
the forestry division said in a
press release. "Spot fires are a
constant danger. Fires burn-
ing in light fuels may quickly
develop high-intensity charac-
teristics such as long-distance
spotting and fire whirlwinds
when they burn in heavier
fuels. Both suppression and
mop-up will require an extend-
ed and very thorough effort.
Yard waste burning is not rec-
ommended. Fire restrictions
may be in effect."


Nassau County is at 529 on
the Keetch-Byram Drought
Index, a continuous reference
scale for estimating the dry-
ness of the soil and duff layers.
The scale ranges from 0 (no
moisture deficit) to 800
(desert-like conditions). The
normal level for this time of
year in North Florida is
between 241 and 420.
There have been 2,933 wild-
fires that have burned 34,190
acres in' Florida since Jan. 1. In
the Jacksonville district
(Nassau, Duval and Clay coun-
ties) 180 wildfires have burned
3,416 acres, the state said.
In Nassau County, a five-
acre fire at Grand Oaks Lane
and Barnwell Road began Nov.
24. A four-acre fire at CR 121
and CR 108 began Thursday. A
fire at CR 121 and CR 119 on


Saturday consumed less than
an acre.
The Normandy Fire. in
Duval County, at Normandy
Boulevard and Yellow Water
Road, has spread over 2,250
acres since it began Thursday.
It is now 85 percent contained.
Firefighters worked through
the weekend to secure an 11-

Plantation maintains


south end roundabouts


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
A maintenance agreement
between the Florida
Department of Transportation
and Nassau County makes the
county responsible for the
maintenance of "improve-
ments" on the roundabouts at
Amelia Island Plantation.
However, the cost of that
maintenance will be borne by
AIP itself, according to county
Public Works Director Scott
Herring.
Road maintenance on the
roundabouts falls to FDOT,
since they are located on a
state road, A1A. The land-
scaping in the roundabouts,
however, is considered an
"improvement" not falling
under the agency's purview.
Herring said Monday that
although the county has



New hotel

set at 1-95
RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Com-
mission has unanimously
approved a site plan for a pro-
posed Hampton Inn at the
northeast corner of A1A and I-
95.
The site plan approval is the
latest step in a process that
began in December 2008,
according to Growth Manage-
ment Director Walter Fufidio.
The proposed hotel would
be a 62,408-square-foot, three-
story building with 110 rooms.
Fufidio said Wednesday that
the construction of the hotel
would probably require the
demolition of two abandoned
gas stations currently occupy-
ing the northeast corner of the
intersection.
The county's approval clears
the way for construction to
begin, he added.
"As far as the county
approval process is concerned,
they're ready to go," he said.
"We do believe there's going to
be a demolition of those aban-
doned filling stations, but that
could easily happen contempo-
raneously with the start of con-
struction.
"The Hampton Inn already
has a pretty strong presence in
Nassau County, one downtown
(on Second Street) and one on
Sadler," he added. "I'm happy to
see them express interest in
Nassau County off-island as
well."

FDOT would maintain them.

Governments cash


in on paid parking


A pay-to-park movement is
spreading like a red tide
along some North Florida
beach towns from
Jacksonville Beach to
Fernandina Beach.
In each instance, govern-
ment officials are playing the
part of the coquettish suitor,
trying to convince business
owners and residents of the
benefits of charging fees to
park. Most have spit out the
bait, however.
In Fernandina Beach, city
officials have already budget-
ed for anticipated revenues
from a paid parking arrange-
ment along the Main Beach
area. This is even before the
plan has been officially
approved by city commission-
ers.
-In Jacksonville Beach, a
similar plot has unfolded.
There, city officials have
brought in a consultant to win
over business owners with
elaborate studies and sur-
veys. A paid parking scheme
is planned for the Central
Business District there.
These towns have similari-
ties. They are popular tourist
destinations, have appealing
beaches and boast amenities
such as trendy restaurants
and shops.
There is another common
thread to this cloak of activity.
SMost municipalities are
craving additional tax rev-
enues to replenish their oper-
ating budgets. With the pre-
cipitous decline of property


tax receipts
in recent
years, local
officials are
simply fish-
ing for new
S streams of
SN revenue.
Thus,
there is the
STEE'S allure of paid
MAR ]ET parking. It is
PLACE not even the
fee for park-
ing that offi-
Steve Nicklas cials desire
most; it is
the revenue from parking
tickets written to violators. In
Fernandina Beach, for
instance, city police have fore-
casted lofty revenues for tick-
ets they will.write.
The ticket charges are
higher and more profitable
than the hourly parking rates.
But this is exactly what busi-
ness owners fear the most. A
visitor who receives a parking,
ticket is probably less likely
to return to town. It leaves a
bad taste in their mouths like
a spoiled oyster.
Local officials contend that
parking fees will help turn
over parking spots and fill
them with new guests and
potential customers. But most
business owners question
whether the underlying intent
is to create revenues.
One business owner in
Fernandina Beach told city
officials to take the keys to
his restaurant if they put in

parking meters or kiosks. He
feels the pay-to-park hassles
will deter customers and
tourists.
* In Jacksonville Beach, a
paid-parking program tried
over the summer severely
impacted at least one busi-
ness. The owner complained
that his revenues were down
48 percent due to a $5 park-
ing fee. Another business
owner cautioned that visitors
would park in rights-of-way
and on private properties to
avoid paying a parking fee.
In nearby St. Simons
Island, Ga., parking metIers
were erected in the down-
town village in the late 1990s.
The meters were a source of
vandalism and immediate fric-
tion with residents and busi-
nesses alike. They were
promptly removed.
The paid parking system is
not that simple to administer
either. You need someone to
write the tickets, someone to
collect the checks for the tick-
ets, and someone to monitor
and pursue those who do not
pay.
However, government offi-
cials are prone to such
aggressive measures to gen-
erate tax revenues. In
Fernandina Beach, officials
are also assessing hefty
impact fees on local restau-
rants that have added more
seats than previously report-
ed.
'Of course, the other, more
favorable option is to reduce
the size of government and'
the scope of spending. For
public officials, that alterna--
tive is often digested like salt
water,.however.

NEW CHAMBER BOARD


SUBMITTED PHOTOS
Seven new business leaders have joined the board of directors of the Amelia
Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce. This incoming group of
directors makes up more than one-third of the 18-member board.
The board will be led in 2011 by Chairman Ron V. Flick, CEO and president of
Compass Group, an Amelia Island-based construction management and development
firm. Flick, receiving the ceremonial gavel, left below, takes over the helm from
2010 Chairman Paul Audet of The Surf Restaurant and Bar.
Joining the board for three-year terms are, above from left, Wynn Fendig of
Property Management Systems; Pamela Brown of Edward Jones Investments;
William Moore of Omni Amelia Island Plantation; Kim Harding of Prosperity Bank;
Mark Cutshaw of Florida Public Utilities; Leah Ledesma of Community First Credit
Union; and Aaron Bell of Science First (not pictured).
Flick, who has been a chamber member since 1995, has been president and CEO
of Compass Group since its inception in 1999 and is a certified general contractor.
Looking ahead to 2011, Flick said it was imperative the chamber continue to
improve and expand programs to meet its membership's expectations and needs
while broadening its advocacy efforts on behalf of the entire Nassau County business
community.

WIED\NISDAY, Dccember 22, 2010 BUSINESS News-Leader


SUBMITTED
little girls enjoy the glamour and fun of playing dress-up at one of Pookies Parties.


It's a party...


HEALTH ERA. PERRY
News Leader

Things were going all right
for the Diaz family until the
economy went sour.
For five years in Miami, for-
mer children's television pro-
ducer Leslie Diaz operated a
children's boutique that includ-
ed a "Glam Station" where she
would do dress-up parties for
children ages 3 to 13.
The business is named for
daughter, Pookie, aka Nina
Simone, 6, a real girly girl who
loves to dress up. The party
includes boys, too.
"I never realized how much
boys love to play dress-up, too.
Their imaginations run wild
when we convert them into
pirates, knights and rock stars."
The glam station side of the
boutique was holding up well.
But it soon became apparent
that the retail side was in trou-
ble and the business folded.
"The boutique just couldn't
keep up with the tough eco,
nolnic times and changes," said
Diaz. "We couldn't compete
with the large corporate chains
offering such great prices even
though our quality was
unmatched."
When the business went
under, Diaz and her husband
lost their home. Their person-
al finances took a hit and their
credit was shot.
"To add insult to injury, my
husband Jorge lost his job in
the commercial landscape
industry. No construction
meant no landscaping and his
company just couldn't afford to
keep him."
With both breadwinners
unemployed, they turned to
family in Fernandina Beach for
help.
"In October of this year we


relocated in an attempt to
rebuild and to give our daugh-
ter a better quality of life.
"We are not just another
business that moved into the
area to expand our wealth, we
are a family that is struggling
and unemployed, and we are
trying to make ends meet.
The best way we can all sur-
vive these bad times is by
seeking the support from the
people around us in our com-
munity."
A visual artist, Diaz brought
the "Pookies Party" half of the
business with her and made it
a mobile, themed children's
party business.
"I know there is nothing like
Pookies Parties for children
from Jacksonville to Georgia,
and I'm confident that the chil-
dren in the area will love it as
much as the children in South
Florida did."
Pookies Parties also does
fundraising events for charities.
"It's a win-win for everyone,"
said Diaz, who wants to estab-


business


lish "Pookies PTO Pals
Program" with local schools.
"Our mission is to grow so
that we can offer more to the
youth in our community. It's all
about paying it forward. Times
are rough and we all have to
stick together as a tight com-
munity. The local community
needs to support its small busi-
nesses and in return, small
businesses need to give back to
their community. It's a circle.
It's how we all survive."
Diaz offers a layaway party
plan.
"We are willing to work with
our clients, not only offering
them affordable, prices and
peace of mind, but ... under-
standing that every parent
wants to give their child a spe-
cial birthday party experience
and may not have the means
to do so."

Animal Services, as you try to
keep you and' your pet's holi-
day stress-free and fun.
Christmas is a great time
to sit together as a family and
enjoy some quality time and,
of course, turkey. Even
though your dog may join you
in the dining room, human
food is off limits. The bones
might look appetizing, but'
poultry bones can splinter in
poor Bruno's throat, choking
or blocking his airway or
intestines.
If you think some holiday
ham and gravy is a good treat
for Bruno, you could be send-
ing him the wrong message.
This meat is very high in fat
and will cause severe gastroin-
testinal distress if eaten in
even small amounts. Being
fed by your family and friends
'can also reward, Bruno's beg-
ging; which can develop into
an aggravating habit.'
When the holiday lights go
up, the cords coine out. Often
times Mittens will want to
chew on them. For cats who
like to play and chew yarn,
electrical cords seem like fair
game. Don't let little Mittens
get burned electrical safety
can be important for your pet
as well as your family, so take
the time to tape down cords.
Holly, mistletoe and poin-
settias may add to the
Christmas spirit of your home,
but many of these holiday
plants can be mildly to severe-
ly toxic to pets. You'll want to
keep Mittens away from these
common holiday plants, as
well as pine needles, which
can puncture her stomach.
Make sure you secure
your Christmas tree so it
doesn't fall over when your
curious puppy or kitten is
exploring the house's new hol-
iday decorations. Christmas
tree water can also upset your
pet's stomach, so make sure
to give Bruno plenty of water
and keep him away from the
tree stand.
If your pet manages to get
his paws on a snow-globe, be
careful! Many snow-globes
contain antifreeze, which Can
be lethal.
They may be outside pets
most of the year, but keep in
mind the change in tempera-
ture (as we have seen already)
and how it can affect your
pets. Please bring your clogs
and cats inside when the
weather gets cold. You would-
n't be comfortable sleeping
outside in the cold neither
would your pet!
Although this is the season
of giving, please think before
you give a dog or cat as a gift!
With the holidays already
being so hectic, your new
furry friend might have trou-
ble adjusting to his new home.
Instead, try giving the gift of
pet supplies and a voucher, so
that you can go with your
loved one and choose a pet at
a more peaceful time.
Remember, you're not the
only one who might stress out
this season. Keep a place for
Mittens and Bruno to hang
out, away from the hustle and
bustle of the holidays. The
increase in guests and holiday
activities might upset your
pet's daily habits, so make
sure to give him a quiet place
to rest and relax.
From everyone at Animal
Services, we wish you a safe,
happy and humane holiday!
Deborah L. Biggs is director
of Nassau Corunty Animal
Services.

COMMUNITY THANKS

Deep appreciation
On behalf of the Amelia Island Museum of
History I would like to express my deep appre-
ciation for the support of our community dur-
ing the recent Holiday Home Tour. From the
many volunteers and staff who worked to
make sure all ran smoothly to the downtown
residents and merchants who were gracious
enough to allow us to invade their neighbor-
hoods. Thanks to you we had a banner year
during a time when so much of the cultural
funding has been cut. We are extremely
blessed to live in a community that is com-
mitted to preserving its past while looking
towards the future.
A special thanks to this year's Holiday
Home Tour sponsors: Florida Public Utilities,
Kempsville Cabinets, the News-Leader and
Amelia Island Tourist Development Council.
Also to those brave souls who were willing to
open their homes to over 1,600 guests: Nina
Houghton, Anne and Bill Kavanaugh, Greg
and Debbie Roland, Howard and Lisa Smith.
An extra bow needs to be given to George and
Barbara Sheffield for hosting the wonderful
Victorian Tea, which was so successfully
organized by Carol Condit.
Finally, it takes a great deal of organization
to bring off an event of this size. We are indeed
fortunate that our own Jan Davis was willing
to pick up the reins of this year's Holiday
Home Tour. Her passion for the museum is
evident every day. Thank you Jan.

take the opportunity to thank everyone who
helped with the Arkansas Razorback Rescue.
The many foster parents who are fostering the
pets through their recovery, STARS of Amelia
and MeeMaw's Place for in-taking animals to
adopt or move onto transport, and Dr. Tina
O'Brien for donating all clinic time andmed-
ications to the 15 animals in need, and the
people who donated funding and good
thoughts.
RAIN could not continue our mission of
rescue, without everyone's generous help
and assistance. Thank you.

SHelping those less fortunate


For most of us, Christmas represents the
best of times and an atmosphere unlike
any other. We need to celebrate that,
soak it all in and appreciate every spe-
cial moment, made so by surrounding our-
selves with family and friends.
For others, Christmas has to be a bitter-
sweet time, a tough time, and as most of us
bask in the warmth of traditional holiday festivi-
ties, I hope we take time to remember those:
less fortunate than ourselves, and to thank
those among us whose mission it is to improve
the lives of others..
When I was a kid, I recall asking my mother
if a classmate was poor. "Not pdor," she said,
"they just don't have much.". I could tell they
didn't have much by the clothes he wore: older-
looking, hand-me-down-like, a tear here and
there and shoes that were worn out, almost
coming apart. But he was a nice boy, this class-
mate, and I wondered as we sat there in class
what his life was like. I knew life was different
for him; I just didn't know how different.
There are so many today who "don't have
much." The good news is that there are caring
organizations reaching out to those in our com-
munity who need help. The Barnabas Center,
Hope House, Samaritan Clinic, Shop With
Cops, Habitat for Humanity and churches of
every denomination are just a few of those,
organizations that mean so much to so many.
Thank you to the individuals who seek no
recognition, but keep these valuable programs


[ ILuthroughout the year. And
S' thank you to those programs
- that make a special effort to
enhance the lives of children
at Christmas.
t ,.... ~1Let's remember another
group, too. Let's remember
those serving in the armed
forces and are away from
DEBATE home at Christmas, especially
DEBATE those in harm's way. .
AND I remember a Christmas at
TACKLE Amarillo Air Force Base in
Texas in 1966. I was at tech
school, a lowly airman second
Ron Sapp class just out of basic training.
The Air Force, as always, did
its best to take care of its own a special holi-
day dinner, music in the chow hall, decorations
around the base but it was my first C In i-i irma,
away (rom home, and the word lonely seems
inadequate when describing my feeling.
The next Christmas I was at Ramstein Air
Base, Germany, newly married and Kasey at
home in Fernandina Beach; she'd be joining
me in January. Away from home, away from my
new wife and a new, more expansive definition
of lonely.
So I remember what it was like being away
from home, but I never was in harm's way. I
can't imagine what it must be like serving in
Iraq or Afghanistan; I can't begin to measure
the sacrifice. All I can do is think of them and


Be gratefulfor the gifts of those
who have made Fernandina
Beach a better place to live.

remember them, and remember their families
whose sacrifice we can't feel, but we can be
aware of and honor.
And let's remember those servicemen and
women who've given their last full measure of
devotion, and their families for whom
Christmas will never be the same,
Christmas represents the best of times, and
let's enjoy the atmosphere, the music, the deco-
rations, the family, the food and the friends that
make this holiday special. But let's remember
those individuals who work so hard in those
organizations that make this holiday, and life, a
little better for those whose circumstances we
can hardly guess at. Let's be grateful for their
gifts: the food, clothing, shelter, toys, etc., but
let us know that by and through their giving,
they've made Fernandina Beach a better place
to live.
And let's remember those serving in our
armed forces, far away from home and family.
Let's take some time this Christmas season to
remember them and their families.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays.

God bless
Andrew and I spent a couple of
hours waving American flags in the
cold Florida mist on Sunday to wel-
come home Spc. Kelly Mixon. We
were very proud to do this. It was a
privilege to be able to honor him, as
well as all of his fallen brothers and
sisters in arms.
We know that he did not die in
vain. He died nobly, assisting yet
another country in its wish to gain
liberty and protect its citizens from
tyrants.
We are equally proud of the patri-
otism our fellow citizens have dis-
played during these last few, sad
days. It was heartening to watch as
political and social differences were
placed in abeyance while we joined
together as a community to pay our
respects.
We hope that the Mixon family
can find a small amount of comfort
from the unified salute we have ren-
dered to them and their fallen hero.
God bless Kelly Mixon and his
family.
God bless America.

Dogs on the loose
Can anyone tell me why there is
no leash law in Nassau County? A
daily walk is needed for health rea-
sons but it seems that a dog attack
is waiting on us.
What is wrong with people that
they cannot watch their dogs or put
them on a leash not only for pro-


The 20-year struggle to keep Crane
Island a beautiful centerpiece of the
Amelia Island landscape has entered
a new phase. Since the state perse-
vered over Nassau County to limit the number
of houses that could be built on this environ-
mentally sensitive rare upland wildlife habitat,
there has been an unending series of battles to
change that status.
The state wanted Crane Island designated
Conservation/Wetlands in the county's com-
prehensive plan, which would allow a density
of no more than one house per five acres (41
homes). Owners of two-thirds of the island,
supported by the Nassau County Commission,
have tried different ploys to build a large-scale
development on their property. Repeatedly,
the state rejected those efforts.
When the county commission used a ques-
tionable legal tactic to approve a planned unit
development of 169 homes and a 92-slip marina
that would destroy the island, a group of local
residents, supported by the Sierra Club and
the Nassau community, brought suit. After four
and a half years of legal struggle, that phase is
now ended and the friends of Crane Island are
turning to new strategies.
Judge Brian Davis of the local court agreed
with the community and the state that the
county's action was inconsistent with the
Conservation/Wetlands land use designation
and improperly bypassed state rules for chang-
ing a comprehensive plan and therefore illegal.
The Court of Appeals, in a split decision,
reversed Judge Davis. (It did uphold Judge
Davis' critical decision that we had "standing,"
the right to bring the suit.) We filed a motion
with the Florida Supreme Court asking them

tection of all walkers but to the
dogs themselves? What about chil-
dren riding their bikes or an elder-
ly person being pushed in a wheel-
chair?
I don't want to hear that the clog
will not bite you because my hus-
band knows better, he has been bit-
ten and it is no picnic.
You may think to yourself while
reading this letter that I am a dog
hater wrong! I have had a dog
all of my life but always watched
the dog when outside or put
her on a leash. I would never hurt
an animal, but sorry if I need to
spray the dog from biting me, I
will!
Due to the bad economy, maybe
the county could pick up more rev-
enue by creating and enforcing a
mandatory leash law. It would also


protect your walkers and bike rid-
ers.

Magical evening
Something magical happened in
Fernandina Beach last weekend.
Emily Dickinson came to visit. The
enigmatic poetess appeared on the
old stage of Amelia Community
Theatre for only two performances,
and even though some may say that
it was really a beautiful actress
named Sinda Nichols performing
on that stage, you can't convince
me that it wasn't really Emily
Dickinson.
She transported me to her world
of the mid-1800's and for a full two '
hours she talked to me about her
life, her frustrations, her insecurity,


to review the case. The Supreme Court grants
review to only a small percentage of cases:
review of civil cases is not mandatory.
The opposition, Nassau County and the
Rogers Towers law firm that represents the
owners of the property, countered with a
motion to recover costs. Florida law permits
defendants in a legal action to seek reimburse-
ment of expenses if the defendants win the
case. The claim was for $39,000 and in our
opinion was inflated beyond the costs allowed
under the rules. We asked an independent law
firm, one which often represents Florida
Sierra, to review the opponents' claim. The
firm gave us an opinion that in the worst case,
$13,000 in expenses could be levied against us.
We prepared for a hearing before Judge Davis
to fight the claim.
However, even if Judge lDavis were to ren-
der a judgment of a lesser amount, Nassau
County and Rogers Towers would appeal to the
same appellate court that heard the original
case, and those judges would approve a higher
sum. (The same judges, Hawkes and 'l'homas,
have just awarded a huge penalty against 1000
Friends of Florida lor bringing a similar land
use suit.) In addition, our own legal costs were
increasing, both for the SupIremUe Court appeal
and to fight tIll costs claim. Our tolal financial
exposure was quickly counting.
If the Supreme Court agreed to hear the
case and found in our favor, the expense claim
would go away. We were advised by counsel,
however, that we had only a 2 percent chance
of the court taking the case. We faced a conun-
drum: argue the case to the very end exhaust-
ing all possible legal avenues with an increase
of our financial exposure by tens of thousands

her intriguing poetry. I loved being
in her presence. Yes, Sinda-Emily,
kudos are deserved. For me, it was
one of the most moving and pro-
fessional shows ACT has ever pro-
duced.
Ron Kurtz was behind the
scenes as director of this one-
woman show and applause to
him as well.
Somehow the intimacy of that
old theater still produces classic
drama and Sinda's standing ovation
was well deserved. It was a "tour-de-
force" and I can't imagine the ener-
gy it took to sustain all the nuances
of the character throughout the
show. I felt honored to be in that
audience. Congratulations to all
involved.

island fight

of dollars, or make a deal with the opposition.
We felt we could not continue to expend
additional large sums of money and face grow-
ing liability for costs in the slim hope the
Supreme Court would hear our case. We very
reluctantly agreed to withdraw the Supreme
Court appeal in return for the withdrawal of
the expense claim against us.
This does not mean that the fight to pre-
serve Crane Island is over. While the county
and owners of the Crane Island property have
won on the density issue, significant hurdles to
complete the development remain. Other gov-
ernment approvals and permits are still needed
in order to proceed. We are not prohibited in
any way from continuing to advocate for Crane
Island.
Conversations are continuing with the
Florida Trust for Public land, Florida Parks
Department and private foundations, all of
which could help in the acquisition of the
Crane Island property to maintain its conserva-
tion status, should the owners be ready to cash
out their invest ment in the property and avoid
the continuing expense of fighting the commu-
nity.
We will never forget the community and
Florida Sierra which supported our effort
with more than $50,000 in donations. An amaz-
ing number of citizens have taken time to
express their dismay about the development of
Crane Island. We thank you for your support,
which has been very generous, and assure you
that our commitment to save Crane Island
remains as strong as ever. We may have lost
this round on points, but we have shown the
opposition our mettle and that we are ready for
the next round.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Jason
Yurgartis of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, the city of Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach
Police Department at 277-7342
or the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office anonymously by calling
225-0147 in Yulee and
Fernandina Beach or 879-2136
in Callahan, Hilliard and
Bryceville. The "We Tip" pro-
gram 1-800-78CRIME also
allows callers to leave anony-
mous tips.
Cocaine charge
Nassau County Sheriff's
office detectives arrested a
Jacksonville man Dec. 15 for
possession with intent to sell
crack cocaine after they report-
edly found 19 grams of the sub-
stance and nearly $20,000 cash
in his rental car following a traf-
fic stop.
Timothy Alphonso Collins,
26, a mover by trade, allegedly
admitted to detectives that he
"hustled crack to make extra
money," police said. He report-
edly told police he earned some
of the $19,997.15 legitimately,
some through gambling and
the rest by selling crack,
according to his arrest and
booking report.
Detectives allegedly spotted
a clear plastic bag on the rear
driver's side floorboard of the
car during the traffic stop. U.S.
currency, later discovered to
be 17 individually banded
$1,000 stacks, was allegedly'in
plain view inside the bag, police
said.
They reportedly found
other, smaller amounts of cash
upon searching Collins, and
throughout the vehicle. .
During a patdown for
weapons, detectives reportedly
discovered more cash in
Collins' pockets and a clear
plastic baggie containing 19
grams of crack cocaine, police
said. Collins allegedly claimed
ownership of the waxy
rocks during questioning,
police said..
The traffic stop reportedly


began sometime after 9 p.m.
when detectives allegedly spot-
ted Collins' rented Chevrolet
Malibu turn too wide and cross
the center line while turning
east onto Harts Road from
northbound US 17, police said.
Collins then turned onto Alene
Road, police said, and sped up
to 50 mph in a 35 mph zone.
While following the vehicle,
detectives said they noticed nei-
ther Collins nor his passenger,
who was not charged in the
incident, was wearing a seat-
belt, and -initiated the traffic
stop.
While coming to a stop,
Collins was reportedly "bend-
ing over and moving about the
driver's seat as if he was placing
something under (it)," police
said. Police said when they
approached the car, they
smelled the odor of burnt mar-
ijuana. They reportedly also
found a small amount of the
drug inside the car.
Collins is charged with-sale
or delivery of cocaine and pos-
session of less than 20 grams of
marijuana, but is no longer
being detained at the Nassau
County Jail. He reportedly told
police he had already given
away "several stacks" of money
to family members for
Christmas gifts prior to being
stopped, police said.
Bubble gum theft
Avendor on Dec. 15 report-
ed to police that a bubblegum
machine he owns was stolen
from the back of the Walmart
Supercenter in Yulee.
Employees of the store told
the owner that the machine,
located at the back of the store
near the restrooms, had been
missing for a week or more,
police said. The owner told
police he last serviced the
machine in October and dis-
covered it missing Dec. 15

reportedly worth $450, police
said.
The case is pending further
information and loss preven-

Pressure ofthe situation too muchfor the ags on Sunday


T he First Coast last week teemed with
anticipation. After all, it isn't every
week the Jacksonville Jaguars are in
position to clinch a division title and,
even juicier, against the Indianapolis Colts, the
AFC South bullies that they are. This was the
big one, the one that would not only clinch the
division title and a playoff berth but also prove
Peyton Manning and his boys were mortal and
capable of being swept in a season series.
Instead, the Jaguars lived up to the moniker
given them by Colts' RB Dominic 1,1i...I, last
week: Little brothers.
This isn't meant to be a rip job of Jackson-
ville. The team, despite its six losses, made
tremendous strides in 2010. Dominating wins
over Dallas and Tennessee and the impressive
comeback against Oakland two weeks ago are
examples of how far the Jaguars have come. In
fact, it's probably been quite some time since
lthe words "dominating" and impressivev" have
be( n used to-I. itl t 'he' Jacksonville
Jaguars, who still may very well find Iheir way


through the back doorr into
the playoffs.
Wilh that said, th1e J jaguars
had the key to the front door
andcouldn' tlianl h(' keyhole.a




coas much Jack l Rio tos faneel he
to belihad their tearom was
...ready to uwih 1nsea:27 ndianago lis,
it was not.
Perhaps it was the pres-
tsur ofthe situation thate
SPORTS .1011 (,anes-
l)rew to filmbh' on 'Tofurlh-
TALK nd-,OOnr that caused head
coach Jack I)el ,io to feel he'
JoHN L. 1had to g(o for it from his own
CRAWFORDI 38-yalrd lintc trailing only 1-
..... 10with 13:27 to go in thec
third quarLer.
Or that caused Oilg David Garrard to revert
to his 2009 form for one play and badly over-
throw a wide open Jason Hill for an intercep)-
tion after completing passes oif 23 and 14


yards, i' -", i i.' on the two previous plays.
By the way, Hill looked to have a chance to
score on that play, which would have tied the
game at 24-24 provided the extra point would
have been good. Instead, Manning milked five
minutes off the clock and the Colts kicked a
field goal to go up by 10 with just under 10
minutes to play in the game.
Maybe the enormity of going from division
pretenders to division contenders in one sea-
son was too much to handle and the Jags sub-
consciously had a iffFlliiii, prophecy to
uphold. The Colts, at Lucas Oil Stadium, quar-
terbacked by Peyton Manning, division title at
stake, win and you're in, pressure, pressure,
pressure. Maybe it was all just too much to
take in.
But if the Jaguars are going to surmount
Indianapolis any time soon, they will to have to
light throughh the strain when such opportuni-
ties as the one Sunday arise. Manning and the
Colts aren't going anywhere. They'll likely be
even better in 2011 after going through some-


what of a swoon this season and will probably
to favored to win the AFC South. Again.
Rhodes hit the nail on the head. Indiana-
polis is absolutely the proverbial big brother of
Jacksonville and seemingly won't ever con-
cede defeat for the sake of brotherly love. The
Jaguars will have to throw a haymaker and
connect to gain the respect of Indianapolis. On
Sunday, they swung and missed.
There was definitely a case of Jaguars fever
in this area last week. But not one Dr. Man-
ning and his team of physicians couldn't cure
during a three-hour appointment Sunday.
Maybe Oakland and/or Tennessee will do
the Jags a favor and knock off the Colts next
week or the week after.
Even if that happens, Jacksonville still has
to take care of business against Washington
and Houston. But let's not talk about that "P"
word again.

Destination:




Amelia Island


D r. Richiard'llaimes
and I were enjoying
an afternoon of fly
fishing on the back-
waters of Amelia Island,
where a hard north wind had
limited our fly fishing suc-
cess. During a beautiful
Amelia Island sunset, the
wind laid down, allowing
small redfish fly's to reach
their targeted redfish waters.
"DIr. Jaws," as most
patients and friends know the
seasoned dentist and fly fish-
erman, made two false casts,
assisted with double hauls
and soon placed his "Action
Crab" fly perfectly at the edge
of a deep oysterbar at low
tide. Allowing the orange
legged crab pattern fly to sink
slowly to the mud bottom,
liaimes soon made short
strips, catching the attention
of a nearby school of redfish.
"Got one," Haimes said.
"Now, this is why my wife
LIorie and I purchased a home
on Amelia Island and that is
for the excellent red fishing."
Hlaimes' redfish made a
powerful run towards a near-
by dock 'i.li,.- then to deep
water where his eight weight
fly rod and reel produced an
enjoyable test between fly
fisherman and redfish. As the
sun began to set, Haimes
landed and released his red-
fish on the fly.
On following fly casts, he
hooked and landed four more
nice redfish on the fly. But,
then a decision had to be
made. Stay here and fly cast
for more Amelia Island red-
fish or navigate safely off tlie
mud flat while there was still
enough light left to safely '
steer my shallow water skiff
home.
We chose to navigate safe-
ly back to the Fernandina
I harbor Marina rather than
spend a cold night in the
backwaters.
Amelia Island backwaters
ar, still being discovered by
many light tackle fishermen
and often kept secret by many
who enjoy these pristine fish-
ing waters. St. Marys, Ga.,
our neighbor to the north,
also has massive areas of
shallow bays and tidal rivers
that are seldom fished and
major fishing pressure or lack
of fish has not become a prob-
lem.
"I have been fly fishing
and tying my own flies since
1969," Haimes said. "I have
fly fished mostly in the North-
east for trout and salmon. I
have also fly fished for bone-
fish and tarpon throughout
the Bahamas, Mexico, Belize,
the Cayman Islands and the
Florida Keys.


"It wasn't
until we
became
interested in
1. sAmelia
f Island that I
considered

S am glad I

OUTDOORS "My wife
..... .Loric had a
TeryLacoas cousin who
lives on
Amelia Island and told her
about the place. LorIie and I
subsequently researched the
area in 2004 and bought our
home in 2008.
"I love the people I ilmee(
on Amelia Island and the
moderate climate and quiet
lif. -,', The island offers
many different activities and
interests for all ages, which
makes it perfect for out chil-
dren and grandchildren as
well."
While our entire saltwater
community from Maine to
Texas has suffered and eco-
nomic downturn during the
past few years, backcountry
fishing has become a more.
affordable pastime for both
avid and the occasional salt-
water fisherman.
With two major freshwater
rivers, the Nassau and St.
Marys, that feed a massive
maze of shallow water flats
and tributaries, a massive
brackish and saltwater fish-
cry awaits both the seasoned
and occasional fisherman.
It is the massive spartina
marshes that deservee full
credit for sustaining Amelia
Island and St. Marys' excel-
lent, fishy backwaters. In the
nutrient-rich marshes,
shrimp, menhaden, mullet,
crabs and a variety of min-
nows spawn and finally
migrate int(o nearby water-
ways, where they feed a vari-
ety of game fish.
Redfish headline the banck-
.country gamn' list and schools
from 10 to more than 50 red-
fish can be seen on windless
days "pushing" or "tailing" on
shallow flats or edges of river
channels.
Sea trout are also popular
game and are also schooling
in the deep edges of bays and
rivers, often feeding over
flooded oysterbars during
high tide. During the warmer
seasons, tarpon weighing
over the 1,200-pound mark
migrate in from the ocean to
feed on mullet, shrimp, crabs
and menhaden.
Fishermen will also find a
world-class flounder fishery.
Southern flounder hide flat on
the shallow bottom waiting
for their prey to swim close

NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINA BEACH. FL


As winter descends, so much for sunny Florida


Wj plainingg. Big Guy
and I love where
we live. Most of
the time. Every once in a
while we get a string of weath-
er that tests us and reminds
us of our past lives in colder
climes. We have had lots of
tests this last year, from the
hottest hot to the recent cold-
est cold.
It comes every year. A run
of cold, yes, even freezing
temperatures. Digging in ourt
closets for turtlenecks, warm
wooly sweaters and jackets,
we abandon our spiffy south-
ern pastels for the darker col-
ors of winter brown and


black. We go
about our
daily sched-
ules and find
our friiends
and usual
contacts all
bundled up
S and not
always rec-
FROM ognizable.
THE We join
PORCH our neigh-
bors cover-
ing the
Dickie plants most
Anderson vulnerable
to the freez-
ing temperatures. As one
drives up to The Ritz-Carlton,


Amelia Island, there seems to
be a mix of holidays. In con-
trast to the bright, white
sparkling Christmas lights
climbing up the palm trees,
stand mysterious wrapped
shapes reminding us more of
Halloween than Christmas'.
Our hearts go out to the folks
that forgot to turn off their
sprinkler systems when the
temperatures dipped below
freezing and inadvertently
created an ice-covered winter
wonderland.
Hard to whine as we watch
our televisions and see the
poor folks "up north" battling
feet of snow and freezing tem-
peratures. Our rare cold


weather days are Mother
Nature's way to remind us
how nice the weather is most
of the time. It is hard to
remember the dog days of
August and the heat and
humidity as we pile on the lay-
ers that promise to keel) us
warm.
The cool weather does
bring back memories mostly
bad. Swirling snow, below
zero temperatures, cars and
trucks stuck on interstates,
airplanes grounded on tarma-
cs. Digging out cozy sweaters
and warm jackets is a lot bet-
ter than digging out winter
boots, mittens, scarves and
hats. Enjoying the good life in


Florida, we transplanted
northerners sometimes forget
how difficult it was to crawl
out of that warm bed and face
a cold, wintry day. Would the
car start? Would we have to
shovel our way out of the
driveway? Would schools be
closed?
Determined golfers and
tennis players are not going to
let a little cold weather keep
them from their daily rounds
and matches. They come up
with some pretty unique cos-
tumes in their determination
to play no matter what. Sports
enthusiasts know the art of
layering.
Our two dogs adjust to the


cold, but don't particularly like
it. Begrudgingly dressed in
their tiny sweaters, they some-
times need to be pushed out
the door and make quick
work of their outings.
The cooler temperatures
do put us in the mood for
Christmas. Somehow
bundling up and going out to
shop in the stores that nearly
vibrate with all their holiday
gift offerings just seems well,
"Christmassy."
