News Leader
Amelia Island resident Steveb;
Comley announced a local petition
drive April 13 at the Elm Street Churchn
of God in Fernandina Beach. The peti-
tion urges President Obama, Vice
President Joe Biden, Speaker of the
House John Boehner and all members
of Congress to create an independent
commission to investigate the U.S.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission
(NRC).
Comley, the founder of We The
People, Inc., a whistleblower protec-
tion group organized to oppose the
Seabrook Station Nuclear Power Plant
in New Hampshire, presented his story
and information to the group of local .
residents for over an hour. Comley's
family owns and operates a nursing
home 12 miles from the Seabrook facil- I E N y
ity and this is where his journey begins. ERN 1 BY
When Comley questioned the NRC
about evacuation plans of his residents,
particularly the physically challenged,
he was told to give them potassium JOIN
iodine and leave them. As a licensedENT --

istrator he found being told certain P,. ,

reporting a 17 percent increase in pop-,
ulation over the last 10 years living

plants. Millions of Americans live with-
in those zones, which are smaller than
the area evacuated around the
Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant in
Japan damaged by the earthquake and

The petition addresses the use of
counterfeit and substandard defective
parts; communities neighboring
nuclear plants not having adequate
emergency evacuation plans to protect
residents; the lowering of safety inspec-

the streamlining of nuclear plant licens- .

'Wonderfullif filled withpublic service
iWonderful. life' filled with public c service


RYAN SMITH
News-Lebder
A lifelong Fernandina Beach resi-
dent, World War II veteran, retired
general contractor and former public
servant, Jim Thomas celebrated his
90th birthday recently.
Thomas, one of 11 children, joined
the Marines at 17 after the death of his
father. One of only three children still
at home, he suddenly found himself
having to provide for his family.
"He passed away in 1936. People
didn't have any money then. I had one
brother just older than I was and one
sister just younger than I was," he
said. My brother went to work for


.'* N Ithe railroad."
S -, !- In 1938, Thomas
k enlisted in the
Marine Corps, send-
S. \ ing $8 of his $21
^ monthly pay home
to his family.. .
"There was noth-
ing else to do to help
Thomas my family which
I've never regret-
ted," he said. "Of
course, $8 would buy a week's worth
of groceries for a family."
In 1940, Thomas was part of the
ilI -1 N I:n,_ division to be permanently
stationed at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
"After that we came to Jacksonville,


N.C., and lived in tents," he said. "That
was a temporary base. That's where I
was when Pearl Harbor broke out. I
was in that tent city December 7."
In the brief time before he went to
war, Thomas married Anne, who
would be his wife for the next 65 years.
"I got inarried May 8, 1942. Right
after I got married, I went overseas for
two years," he said. "... We left there in
June of 1942 by train to California,
and boarded ships there to an
unknown destination. We just knew
we were going somewhere. .
"We ended up in Wellington, New
Zealand. That was a beautiful bay in
the nighttime all the lights going up
the hills. Our ships were all in the bay.


We had to niake combat ships out of
them; we were on troop transports
when we got over there."
After converting the ships, Thomas
and his fellow Marines set out for
another unknown destination.
"When we pulled out of there, we
didn't know where we were going.
They didn't tell us until we were
almost to the island we were going to
land on, which was Guadalcanal.
"On Aug. 7 at daybreak, all the
ships arrived at this island. All the bat-
tleships, cruisers any ship that had
a big gun opened fire on the island.

Hilda



'writes

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
gL ike clockwork, Hilda
Higginbotham's handwrit-
ten columns arrived at the
News-Leader from 1974
until March 2010, when declining
health brought an end to "Hilda's
Hearabouts," the longest-running
column in the newspaper's
history.
Her handwriting was less
steady in recent years, but she
still filled 16 to 24 pages of yellow
legal pad with her cursive review of
the news and notes for churches
across Nassau County. She still
thrilled to the ministries of her
favorite pastors, and still listed the
doings large and
small, as she had.
done for more than
35 years.
"Hilda is writing
her column in heav - .. -
en now," said News-
Leader Publisher
Foy R. Maloy Jr.,
after Hilda died
Saturday at the age HILDA'S
of 91. Her funeral HEAR-
was held Tuesday BOUT
in Callahan.
The first "Hilda's ***-
Hear About" col- Hil
umn was published
in the News-Leader Higginbotham
on July 25, 1974.
Replacing Ena Dowman's regular
"Yulee 'Round and About" feature,
Hilda's column focused oft the ins
and outs of small-town life in Nassau
County -who had visitors from out
of town, what'former residents were
up to, who'd just had grandchildren.
It was the epitome of the small-
town community newspaper, noting
the daily doings of local residents
that now mostly find a place not in a
community newspaper column, but
on Facebook, or Twitter.
As time went on, Hilda changed
focus concentrating on church
news throughout the county and
"H-ilda's Hear About" morphed to
"Hilda's Hearabouts."
Hilda was an active member of
First Baptist Church of Fernandina
Beach and served the church in a
variety of capacities.
She was born Nov. 29, 1919, in
Glenville, Ga., and raised in Jesup,
Ga., from the age of 10 by her uncle
and aunt. She graduated high school
there and went to work in the local
hospital, where she met her hus-
band, Bernard.-
Married in 1940, the Higginboth-
ams lived in New York and Texas
during World War II. After the war
until 1952, they lived in Callahan.
Then they moved to Fernandina
Beach where they raised two daugh-
ters.
A devout woman, Hilda for
years ended her column with the
same wish for her readers a wish
that is perhaps a fitting sendoff for
our most prolific columnist:
"May our Great Heavenly Father
watch over us and keep us in his
loving care."

PHOTOS COURTESY OF STEVE COMLEY
Steve Comley leads a rally outside of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C.
during the licensing lawsuit of the Seabrook Station Nuclear Power Plant in 1990.
Below, meeting with President Clintofn, who declined to act on Comley's concerns.


COMLEY
Continued from 1A
ning with Ronald Reagan in
1988, without any interest
being exhibited. He has written
letters to President Obama
three times since 2008 and
recently to First Lady Michelle
Obama, without reply. He
accuses the NRC and federal
government of a cover-up of
his concerns dating back to
the Three'Mile Island accident
in Pennsylvania in 1979. At one
point, the U.S government
threatened him in courtfor six
years to give up the names of
his sources.
For the past three weeks
he has walked the floors of the
Florida House of Represen-
tatives and Senate, delivering
and discussing his concerns
.with every elected official or
their staff.
Comley's efforts have been
reported in the media through-
out the years without any
progress being made, he said.


Last week, Comley and a rep-
resentative from the NRC
were guests on the WJCT 89.9
radio show First Coast
Connect.
Comley's distrust of the
NRC and the lack of concern of
elected officials led him to cre-
ate the petition. His passion,
drive and commitment to
insuring the safety of the pub-
lic and the nation's nuclear


power plants are dauntless, he
added. He states that he "sim-
ply wants to hold the govern-
ment accountable and keep the
U.S population safe."

Continued from 1A
in between the shelling, were
bombing and strafing the
island."
But the occupying Japanese
forces hit back hard.
"The Japanese were sinking
so many of our ships that our
admiral pulled them out when
we hadn't even unloaded half
of our rations or our heavy
guns," Thomas said. "They
relieved .that admiral for that
reason, and we got a new admi-
ral.
"I went in on the invasion in
the second wave, and I stayed
on Guadalcanal from August 7,
to December 15. Then we
pulled out and went to Australia.
The Army took over from us."
After Guadalcanal, Thomas
participated in an operation on
Cape Gloucester, New Britain,
and later training on the island
of Pavuvu.
"By this time ,1I had been in
over two years," he said. "After
that operation, I came back to
the States. I was stationed out
here at the Naval Air Station in
Jacksonville. Then in 1945, I
was sent to China."
From 1945 to 1947, Thomas
was part of an engineering com-
pany that built Quonset huts for
Marines stationed along the rail-
roads and highways of the war-
torn country.
"I came back in '47 from
China, and I was discharged
from Jacksonville Naval Air
Station and joined the Reserve,"
he said. "I came back to
Fernandina and I worked for
Rayonier for a year. They start-
ed laying off personnel, so I
went to work for a plumbei" as a
helper.
"He finally went out of busi-
ness, so I opened my own
plumbing business at 115
Atlantic Avenue.
"I had been in business a lit-
tle over a year when I got two
letters in the mail at the same
time. In one of them, I had won
a bid on running a sewer line


Adkins on Redistricting Committee


Florida House Speaker Dean
Cannon appointed State Rep.
Janet Adkins (R-Fernandina
,Beach) to the Florida House of
Representatives' Redistricting
Committee on Monday.
"I am honored to be appoint-
ed by Speaker Cannon to serve
on the Redistricting Commit-
te_," saidAdkihn. "I look 'fr-'
ward to working with my col-
leagues in the Florida House
and Senate oih this critically
important task."
During the 2012 session, the
Florida House will engage in
the constitutionally required
process of redistricting based
on the latest federal census fig-
ures. Every 10 years, the
Florida Legislature redraws the
state's Congressional and
Legislative boundary lines and


submits this
redistricting
plan to the
governor for
approval.
The lead-
up to that
process will
Adkins ......begin this

starting in July
and ending in November, the
House, in conjunction with the
Senate, will hold approximately
30 public hearings acinoss
Florida.
Additional preparatorywork
will be required of House mem-
bers prior to this summer. As a
result, the Redistricting Com-
mittee, the House Redistricting
Subcommittee, the Senate
Redistricting Subcommittee and


the Con-gressional Redistricting
Subcommittee will hold several
meetings during the final weeks
of this session. The Redistric-
ting Committee begins its work
today.
The Florida House has
developed a web-based redis-
tricting application (MyDistrict


Builder), which is currently
available'in "beta" format and
can be found at www.floridare-
districting.org. The 2010
Census data has been uploaded
into the beta test version of this
House application and the fully
functional version will be avail-
able by this summer.

from Peck High School all the
way up to Eighth Street which
would have been a big contract
for me. The other letter was
from Uncle Sam, and said, 'You
have 15 days to report to Camp
Lejeune for the Korean War.'"
This time, however, Thomas
served stateside.
"I didn't have to go to Korea.
Because of my (military occu-
pational specialty) they sent me
to Quantico, Virginia, to build
Quonset huts for new platoon
leaders.
"In 1952,1 Iwas released fiom
the Marine Corps. I came back
to Fernandina and went back
into the plumbing business.
Then I added electric, heating
and general contracting."
Thomas also began a sec-
ond career in public service.
"We had a-new sheriff just
got elected, and he asked me to
be his juvenile officer, working
with children and the judge
asked me to be the truant offi-
cer in conjunction with that job,"
he said. "So I worked in those
positions for 3 1/2 ;ears. After
that episode, the superintendent
of the schools asked me to be
the first maintenance superin-
tendent for the schools. So I
was the maintenance superin-
tendent, and I had one man to
help me. We took care of all the
schools in the county.


"After three years, I went
back into the construction busi-
ness and stayed there until I
retired at 85 years old."
Thomas also served as a
Nassau County commissioner
from 1964-68, and as a school
board member in the 1970s.
"I only tried each one time,"
he said. "I never did run no
more. That took care of my pub-
lic service."
Jim and Anne Thomas had
four children daughters Linda,
Brenda and Beth, and son
Terry.
Thomas's life has not been
without sadness. His son Terry
died of cancer shortly after mov-
ing back to Fernandina Beach
after a career as a police
officer. And in 2007, Thomas's
wife died .after 65 years of mar-
riage.
"The girls took us to Alaska
just before she died for our 65th
anniversary," he said.
Still, Thomas said, his life
has been a blessed one;with 17
grandchildren, 36 great-grand-
children and two great-great-
grandchildren.
"I have had a wonderful life
in Fernandina Beach," he said.
"People have been good to me.
I've made my living here. It's
just been a wonderful life 90
years in Nassau County."

Time has come


to reform public


worker pensions


In the wake of vitriolic read-
er response, let's pursue a topic
that is more financial in tone
and less distasteful in flavor:
pension reform.
Particularly public pension
reform..
Now, this topic is so con-
troversial that some humbled,
gun-shy columnists might not
touch it. But, as they say, that's
not how we roll.
When Florida Gov. Rick
Scott embraced a coalition on
pension reform, the inflam-
matory topic was again thrust
into a broad spotlight. And
once again, it is to the dismay
of those public-sector workers
either receiving a pension or
planning for one.
By endorsing "Floridians
for Sustainable Pensions,"
Scott is driving his agenda.
The group consists of a diverse
membership, including Amer-
icans for Tax Reform, the
Florida Chamber of Com-
mierce, the National Federation
'for Independent Businesses
and The James Madison
Institute.
Scott believes the public
sector should endure the same
demands and concerns as the
private sector. Therefore, he
believes guaranteed pensions
should be replaced by person-
al accounts that require a con-
tribution by the participant
(like a 401K in the private
arena).
In this case, the contribu-
tion would be defined; the ben-
efit at retirement is not. The
final tally for an employee is
figured by multiplying the con-
tributions (along with employ-
er matches) by the annual
returns. This is what they get
at retirement. No more, no
less.
There are critics of changes
in the public retirement sys-
tem. In a traditional pension
arrangement, a seasoned man-
ager invests the funds for the
"mploydes .
In the other scenario, each
employee acts as his or her
own money. manager, often

lack ing
resources
and knowl-
edge.
Scott is
not a typical
political
chameleon
___ee that turns
STEVe'u whatever
STEVE' S color is nec-
ARET essary to get
PLACE re-elected.
He doesn't
dodge a dis-
Steve Nicklas agreement,
and does
speak his mind.
'He believes that public pen'
sions will eventually bankrupt
most cities, counties and
states. This is because the obli-
gations are escalating at an
unmanageable pace. Many
have been sweetened by prom-
ises of politicians.
In addition, pension calcu-
lations typically use an annual
return of 8 percent After a lost
decade in which U.S. stocks
returned practically nothing,
you .can see why pensions are
underfunded and underper-
forming.
When the markets were
roaring, however, many pen-
sion contributions were
shirked. The gains in the
market seemed at the time to
be taking care of the pension
liabilities, so many municipal-
ities as well as corporations
opted not to contribute as
much.
This has compounded the
shortfall, along with the hor-
renddus performance of the
underlying investments. In
addition, retirees are living
longer, putting strains on pen-
sion funds to provide everlast-
ing returns.
Often, in the private sector,
a company will respond to
underfunded or underper-
forming pensions by reducing
retiree benefits. Unless the
"piiblic sector embraces this
notion, ihe pension format as
we know it is probably unreal-
istic and outdated.
Thus, governors in states
such'as New Jersey, Wisconsin
and now Florida are pushing
for reform of public pensions..
This does not impact most:
existing workers as much as,
new ones.
Only about 20 percent of.
private companies in the U.S.:
still provide pensions for
employees. The rest have con-
verted to some sort of defined-i
contribution plan (like a 401K)1
or discontinued retirement:
benefits altogether.
The public sector must take!
notice. Reform is the viable,
answer.

National County Government Month
April 2011


made our third annual event a success.
We were able to welcome over 400 people
through the doors, provide information about
responsible pet ownership, introduce some won-
derful adoptable pets to the public and help edu-
cate the public about our natural resources.
Several local shelters as well as rescue groups
were on hand, and some lucky pets found their
forever homes. Local veterinarians provided
health care advice, and many children enjoyed
the Kids Korner.
A special thanks to Miss Shelby Crews for her
lovely presentation of The National Anthem.
Local merchants generously donated items for
our silent auction, which raised money for the
Cats Angels Low Cost Spay/Neuter Fund. Over
600 pounds of food was collected to help feed
homeless and needy animals, and so many vol-
unteers provided some of the most wonderful
sweets for the bake sale.
If it was not for the help of the community we
would never have been able to provide this free
event for the public to enjoy.
We look forward to see you all next spring!

Old Town bicentennial
The Old Town bicentennial was a great cel-
ebration. Old Town in fiesta! Our trolley shuttle
drivers were delighted that the Smurfit parking
area kept needing to be expanded, and as the
river boat shuttle captain said, there were prob-
ably more people in Old Town on April 2 than on
any other day in history. Estimates of attendance
range from 2,000 to 3,000-plus people. The weath-
er was glorious, and the whole day was a delight;
people had fun and learned a lot about our corner
of heaven. People leaving on the shuttles were
"up" and asking when the next celebration would
be.
On behalf of the Bicentennial Steering
Committee, we want to express our thanks to'all
who contributed to the success of the Bicentennial
celebrations. As you'll see from the list, they are-

EDITORIAL

More than ever,

we must honor

our volunteers

T here is a long tradition of volun-
teerism in America. Helping oth-
ers less fortunate than ourselves
is part of our democratic heritage.
Government has its place, but there is no
replacing the private sector individuals,
businesses and service clubs when it
comes to looking out for the underprivi-
leged.
In this era when we are slashing govern-
ment and the benefits it provides, volun-
teers are more important than ever. Who
better to fill the void than the cadre of men
and women who, acknowledging their own
good fortune, come forward to help those
in need?
The Nassau
County Volunteer
Center has helped
young people, sen-
iors, the disabled
and others in need
here in Nassau
County for more than
two decades. We are
reminded of that each year
when the center recognizes
residents who exemplify true volunteer
spirit.
These volunteers are honored for their
.selfless giving to the less fortunate in our
community. Without them, our community
would be so much less than it is.
The annual Volunteer Appreciation
Luncheon is Thursday at the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center. A select few will
be especially honored, but the luncheon
recognizes all those who volunteer their
time to benefit others.
These volunteers deserve our thanks.
Their service rewards all of us. They have
made this a better place. We are truly grate-
ful.

* VIEWPOINT/RicARD GOLDMAN, GIL LANGLEY, PEGGY HEISER/TOURISM OFFICIALS



Out-of-state tax break is unfair


More than $130 million! That's what
Florida stands to lose over the next
four years if House Bill 493 (SB
376) is approved this legislative
session.
Referred to as the OTC Bill, this piece of
legislation if passed would exempt online
travel agencies (i.e., Expedia, Orbitz, Priceline,
Bookit, etc.) from paying taxes on the retail
price of rooms they sell, giving them a signifi-
cant profit advantage over Florida lodging
providers. State law requires every person
who receives compensation for lodging accom-
modations to collect and remit all applicable
taxes.
Currently, online travel agencies only pay
taxes on wholesale hotel rates, not what the
customer pays. The shortfall in tax revenue
can be in excess of 20 percent. The online
company keeps the difference as a "service
fee." Rather than offset the state and local gov-
ernment's revenue shortfall, this extra money
is going into the online travel agency's pocket.
At a time of drastic budget cuts for essential
services, it's surprising that the Florida legisla-
ture is considering providing corporate welfare
to out-of-state companies. By the way, in other
states, such as New York, the online compa-
nies are required to pay taxes on the full
amount charged the customers.
What does this cost Northeast Florida com-
munities? For Duval, Flagler, Nassau and St.
Johns counties in 2010 alone the uncollect-
ed taxes from these online transactions were


approximately $1.8 million. Those funds could
have gone directly into sales and bed tax col-
lections at the local level to be used for beach
renourishment; support for cultural, sporting
and other special events; Everbank Stadium;
and overall tourism marketing designed to
bring more tourists here.
More visitors to the area means more
money in our local economy and more jobs for
our residents (every 85 visitors creates one
new job). According to Visit Florida, each dol-
lar spent in tourism marketing generates $147
in tourism spending and more than $9 in new
sales tax collections. These sales tax collec-
tions help fund better roads, our local parks
and education, and ultimately help keep.
Florida free of a state income tax on residents.
In fact, this funding is so critical that the state
of Florida and many counties joined together
in a lawsuit against the online agencies to force
payment of the taxes owed under state law.
That's when they turned to their friends in the
legislature.
As Florida reels from its financial crisis, and
" we face deep budget cuts at every turn, we -
as a state, community and individual residents
are leaving that $130 million of uncollected
tax.revenue from online travel agencies on the
table. And that number pales in what the loss-
es could be if Disney, Universal and others
decide to launch their own online companies
to take advantage of the unearned profits cre-
ated by this bill. Legislators are taking locally
created value and allowing it to be withheld by


companies with no local.roots, involvement or
investment.
This bill is widely opposed by a number of
entities, including the American Hotel &
Lodging Association, the Florida Association
of Convention & Visitors Bi-ra0s and the
Florida Association of Counties. Together,
these organizations, along with the national
chains of Best Western, Choice Hotels,
InterContinental Hotels, Marriott, Hilton and
Starwood, signed and submitted a letter to
Gov. Rick Scott requesting this bill not pass.
However, thus far legislators are ignoring the
views of their constituents in favor of politically
'connected corporations who have hired a high-
powered group of lobbyists as a profit-generat-
ing strategy.
Florida's legislators are speeding through
tax breaks for out-of-state companies that put
Florida employers at a competitive disadvan-
tage, while shortchanging Florida sales taxes
that fund state.programs and balance the
budget in Tallahassee. It's something every-
one should oppose. Call your legislators and.
tell them to force online travel companies to
collect taxes the same way as Florida hotels -
on the full amount charged to the customer.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE

Citymarina -- -,...-. -


My friend Coleman .Langshaw
wrote a curious column for the Neus-
Leader last week ("It's not looking so
good at city marina," April 13). In it,
he is critical of Westrec, our marina
management group, suggesting that
they had not been forthright, that
they.had over-promised in their
response to our city's request for
proposal.
But our request clearly says that
with the conclusion of the (then)
current dredging project, the
respondents to our request for pro-
posal should base their proposals -
and projections on a marina that
would have a depth throughout of 6
feet at low tide. Our request said
nothing about an ongoing need for
dredging, or how much it might
cost But, as it turned out, the mari-
na was ever dredged to a 6-foot
depth as our request specified. This
is all-important because without suf-
ficient water depth, most of our slips
are inaccessible at low tide.
The cuiri'ous's' aspect of Mr.
Langshaw's complaint is that he was
a part of the city selection commit-
tee that was responsible for putting
out our errant request for proposal,
he was the city's project manager
for the dredging then going on
which never got to the promised
depth and he voted in favor of select-
ing Westrec to be our new marina
management group.. In spite of our
dismal performance, the fact is that
transient boat/nights are up nearly
40 percent since Westrec took over;
fuel sales in gallons and revenue -
are up by nearly as much (and
Westrec has no share of fuel sales
profit).
The little store on the dock
wherein the city and Westrec split
revenue has not done as well as
expected. Westrec based their.pro-
jections on having more boats in
fully usable slips, which we did pot
provide. Only four of the interior
slips have more than 4 feet of water
in them at low tide. Further, Westrec
did not come."hat in hand" to the city
asking for rent relief, rather they
observed that the store was not
doing as well as projected which, in
their opinion, was caused by hav-
ing many fewer rentable slips than
they expected.. In response to this,
the city commission offered to elim-
inate a minimum rental fee as the
city had not provided the water
depths on which Westrec projec-
tions were based.
The city and Westrec are now
working on a long-term solution to
water depth in the marina. There
appear to be new techniques which
may prove helpful in this regard. If
it is possible to beat,back the high
cost, or frequency of dredging, we
shall all be delighted by the prof-
itability of our marina.

The Learning Community of
North Florida (TLCNF) is attempt-
ing to purchase a building located on
Sadler Road, an area that is cur-
rently zoned CG, when its lease is up
July 1 on its South Eighth Street
location.
In a meeting with the city's sen-
ior planner Friday, it was found that
the city does not have a definition of
what a "school" is. The Learning
Community offers non-degree class-
es that people take to pursue hob-
bies and interests such as cooking,
art, photography, gardening, etc. It
is more of "edu-tainment" organiza-
tion than an actual school.
According to the city, the
Learning Community most closely
resembles a "private school" (which
they do not have a definition for)
more than a membership organiza-
tion (TLCNF offers memberships
to individuals and couples) or recre-
ational facility (TLCNF offers dance

classes, crafts, etc.), neither of which
require conditional use permits.
We thought our biggest hurdle in
expanding TLCNF was going to be
getting financing as we operate on
very low margins. We did not expect
to have more problems with the city.
We were told to expect a total
cost of approximately $800 between
45-60 days, depending upon when
the application is submitted. The
Conditional Use process includes a
public hearing. The criteria by which
the board bases its decision is
included in the application.
It would probably be easier to
open a strip joint in the area, because
at least they have a definition for
what one is.
It never ceases to amaze me how
many hurdles the city has for small
business owners to operate here.
The current problems are caus-
ing us to rethink whether we want to
stay in Fernandina. This process is
going to set us back several months,
and I'm not sure we can afford it.

Columnists
I read the letter from the guy
who said that Steve Nicklas should
stick to investment-related topics
("Uninformed rambling," April 13).
I don't agree with him I think that
Steve's column is consistently inter-
esting, relevant and most signifi-
cantly worth me taking the time to
read. I feel about Steve like I do
about columns by Ron Sapp, Joe
Palmer and some others I may not
always agree with their perspective
on issues, but I do respect the fact
that these folks always present
rational analysis and support their
positions. Pat Foster-Turley does-
n't really take positions on matters,
and she is always great. You have
some great columnists, and Steve
is one of those.
You guys put out a great paper.

Property rights
I read with interest the letter "An
alternative to resort rentals," April
13. It is clear that the letter writer
supports the ban on short-term
rental homes on South Fletcher. I
own the home on South Fletcher
Avenue. Although he lives less than
250 feet away, I have never met the
letter writer.
Supporters of the ban will likely
tell you that the ban is necessary to


control noisy, destructive, weekend
tourists. Opponents of the ban will
say that it has made it impossible for
rental homes to generate a positive
cash flow, thus causing financial
hardship.
My home was designed to be a
short-term vacation home. In 2010 it
generated $14,500 in long-term rent
revenue. This barely covered the
property tax and the insurance.
When one adds the mortgage pay-
ment, repairs and maintenance the
loss was in excess of $17,000. For
this reason, the home is nearly
impossible to sell.
At the heart of this issue are
property rights and property taxes.
Supporters of the ban are typically
long-term homesteaders. Opponents
of the ban are rental property own-
ers who pay higher property tax
when compared to their homestead
neighbors. A case in point is when
my home is compared to the letter
writer's. He purchased his home in
1991. His home is more than twice
the size of my home, (2,789 square
feet vs. 1,364 square feet), his home
is more than twice the value of my
home, ($667,718 vs. $381,450) and
yet he paid only one-half the prop-
erty tax ($3,637 vs. $7,206). If he
were paying a tax rate equal to mine,
his annual property tax would sky-.
rocket from $3,637 to $12,614.
So why does he have more than
twice the home but only pays one-
half the tax? In 1992 Florida voters
passed the Save Our Homes
Amendment. This well intended, but
short-sighted amendment set in
motion a perverse taxation system
that rewards long-term homestead-
er's at the expense of non-home-
stea(fers. Owners of rental property
bften pay double, triple or even
quadruple the property tax of their
homestead neighbors. Despite their
hefty tax contribution, many home-
steaders view the owners of rental
property and their guests as ants at
their private picnic. From a taxation
standpoint, it is the homesteaders
that are the ants.
The ban on short-term rentals
arbitrarily discriminates because it
penalizes thousands of peaceful, law
abiding tourists. The ban strips the
rights of hundreds of responsible
property owners and punishes them
for the actions of a few irresponsible
individuals. At a minimum, the ban
should be lifted with the stipulation
that repetitive violations by guests
stayifig at a specific property shall
result in fines and the possible rev-
ocation of the short-term rental per-
mit for that property. Let us not con-
demn the innocent masses as a

consequence' of the irresponsible
actions of a few.
David Fashingbauer
Fernandina Beach

Of special interest
The special-interest groups are at
it again. The latest scheme being
brought to our well-meaning com-
missioners is to turn our quiet neigh-
borhoods into "expanded" short-
term rentals. Think Panama City
Beach, Coney Island, etc. The result
is large groups coming into single
family homes resulting in more
trash, more cars, more noise, more
congestion, more underage drinkers
and, worst of all, added danger to
our children. Many of these short-
term renters have no vested interest
in our neighborhoods.
. Please call, write, email your
concerns to our city manager and
commissioners. If we act now, we
may be able to stop our beach com-
munity degradation before it is too
late.

Gotto be better
Speaking for my family, I can-
not tell you how disappointed we
are with the antics of the Republican
Party. Such politics tell the rest of
the world that we are a very stupid
and petty nation, and they may not
be too far off.
The Republican Party may think
it has a leg up now but we will
always remember how'the nation
got to this dastardly state via the
G.W. Bush area.
We sincerely believe that the
majority of, both are inca-
pable of the re (t-ies they
have been privilege. ''enact and
assume. We think'ibatIhe country
is in dire need of an overhaul in the
quality of personnel we send to do
an adult job. We don't think the peo-
ple in office, including a well mean-
ing but distraught president, will
be able to hold the nation together.
Be reminded that every society
since the beginning of recorded his-
tory has, at one time, collapsed and
been replaced. We think that time is
coming for us and we don't relish it.
In finality, we hope the Tea Party
can fund someone who is even
slightly electable. If they can do that
and buttress it with a good bunch of
assistants we think it has to be bet-
ter than anything we see in the
Republican Party.

An oil platform exploded into flames in April 2010, killing 11 BP employees and pro-
voking an oil spill that has continuing consequences.


Year after, oil spill's



human effect debated


101oI da N :'s Connection

TALlAHASSEE A year
after the BP Horizon oil .plat-
form exploded, advocates for a
clean Gulf of Mexico say it is
riot a pretty picture below the
tranquil waves. For months after
the tragic disaster, dead fish,
shrimp, crabs, oysters and ter-
restrial wildlife made the head-
lines. Now, possible after-effects
on humans are rising to the sur-
face.
Dr. Michael Robichaux, who
practices medicine in coastal
Louisiana, says he is witness-
ing not just physical disorders.
'The thing that is unheard of
before is psychological: We
have people with memory loss
that is absolutely unbelievable."
According to the latest Oil
Spill Commission report to


Congress, BP dumped almost 2
million gallons of dispersant in
the Gulf. Experts say it did not
eliminate the oil, but just broke
it down into millions of droplets.
Robichaux says more than 300
residents along the Gulf Coast
have reported medical prob-
lems. BP claims there is no
long-term health risk to cause
the public to worry.
Robichaux's wife, Brenda
Dar Dar Robichaux, is a envi-
ronmental activist and former
chief of the Houma Indian
Nation, which depends on fish-
ing for its livelihood. She is giv-
ing testimony before a con-
gressional panel this week.
"My father did not harvest
his oysters because he is con-
cerned about the safety of the
seafood. My family and I don't
eat the seafood being caught."


Dr. Robichaux says the
blood of Gulf residents who
were tested showed 35 times
more ethyl benzene, a highly
toxic oil component. The health
risk could be compounded by
toxic poisoning from the chem-
ical dispersants sprayed on the
oil slicks, he adds. Robichaux
claims these risks to humans
are being ignored.
"You will find hundreds of
articles on fish, shrimp, crabs,
what have you, but not a single
thing on human effects.
Nothing."
As of early April, 153 dead
dolphins have washed ashore
on the Gulf Coast. Experts call
this an alarming clue to the pos-
sible long-term effect the spilled
oil and petrochemical disper-
sants could be having on human
lives.


Poll: Scott 'least liked'


lorida News Connection
TAI. AHASSEE Florida
tov. Rick Scott's first 100 days
in office are not getting rave
reviews from all quarters. The
latest poll released by North
Carolina-based Public Policy
Poll gives Scott just a 32 per-
ce *nt approval rating among like-
ly voters.
Scott was elected over Alex.
Sink by 1 percent of voters last
fall. But opponents of the new
governor say, instead of build-
ing good will, Scott has contin-
ued to turn voters off. The new
poll pegs his disapproval rating.
at 55 percent.
Rich Templin, a legislative
representative for-the AFL-CIO
Florida, was among those at a


State Capitol
rally this
week, claim-
ing Scol t is the
"least-liked"
governor in
m o d e r n
Florida histo-
ry.


Scott


"W h at
working peo-
ple around the state are saying
with our governor, Rick Scolt, is
that he has really been a
abysmal failure."
The poll says if an elect ion
was held today, Scott would lose
in a rematch with tlhe
Democratic candidate by a 56 to
37 percent margin Challenger
Sink would also win Ihe inde-


pendent vote by a stunning 61
percent, a flip-flop since the
election 100 days ago.
A spokesman for the gover-
nor says poll numbers don't
take a long-term view into
account and that's what mat-
ters. Scott's Press Secretary
Lane Wright argues it is not the
short-term approval rating that
counts.
"People tend to look at the
short-term, they tend to look
at how things are right now,
without looking at the long view
the hard work and hard deci-
sions we're making now, what
kind of payoff they will have,
into the future."
According to the poll, 43 per-
cent of independent voters
say they dislike Scott,
Democrats disapprove of his
performance by a whopping 81
percent. Templin says the poll
numbers point to the need for
the governor to ponder chang-
ing how he does the state's
business.
"Using this 100 days, we
would like to ask the governor
to actually do something dif-

'Be Hear Now!'


that a New Age book
called Be Here Now
was selling like hot-
cakes on college campuses,
maybe four decades? But that
slogan still sticks in my mind,
like a memory, and is still
good advice even all these
years later.
But now it might need
updating. "Be Hear Now"
seems like even better advice.
It's disturbing to me how
many people I notice on my
walks that are tuned into the
sounds of something other
than the pleasant sounds
around us.
One morning, for instance,
I'was walking along the
beach, listening to the little
chirps of the small sand-
pipers, all in a group just
beyond the tideline, little
chirps to each other as they
vied for the best probing
spots in the sand. Closer to
the dune line, behind these
little peeps, a pair of seagulls
were squawking in dispute
over some found "treasure"
or another. Beneath it all, the
rushing of the ocean waves,
the roar of the surf, provided
rhythmic accompaniment.
So soothing. Like something
you could buy "white noise"
if you have problems sleep-
ing. -
And down the beach, obliv-
ious to it all, a lone jogger
with headphones hurried
past, without even noticing
them, or the fact that after her
passing by, they all flew up
into the air in a rush of wings,
another sound added to the
natural concert. Too bad she

missed it.
Wonder
what she
was listening
to that was
any better
than this?
And later,
during the
same morn-
ing walk, on
a pedestrian
path under a
canopy of
live oak
trees, I
heard the


hammering of a woodpecker,
and soon enough found it
warily eyeing me from the far
side of a telephone pole that it
was busy trying to turn into
suitable housing. Nearby a
female cardinal chirped from
the ground, and I found her
mate, by following his answer-
ing chirp from a nearby
branch. Further in the back-
ground, out of sight, a hawk
screamed its own cry, in terri-
torial display or just trying to
find his own mate, who
knows? But without hearing
the sounds I would have
missed all this action, like the
dog walker with the cell
phone did, all immersed in
his own loud conversation to
someone no doubt miles
away.
Then there's the man I
saw on a warm day at the
beach, all self-important,
holding his cell phone and
shouting orders to some
unseen person at the end of
the line. Meanwhile he
missed his own young daugh-
ter's attempts to catch his


attention. "Daddy, look what I
found" and "Daddy, can we go
in the water?" But he just
waved her away soundlessly,
while continuing to converse
on the phone. Eventually she
gave up and went down the
beach alone, with her dad
trailing behind, lost in his
conversation with someone
invisible, but more important
than her. Poor gal. And poor
Dad, who one day might
wake up to realize he missed
his daughter's childhood,
whild he was there, but not
there, with her on those days
at the beach.
But no, not me. I'm always
.listening and looking when
I'm outside. The sounds of
birds interest me I want to
see what they are doing and
why they are making sounds.
The sounds of dogs barking
alert me to their antics, too.
Are they friendly, are they
warning me it helps to hear
what they are "saying'."
And when I walk the
beach, I listen to the sound of
waves and it takes me far
away to distant lands. Where
are the waves originating
from? Did an oceanliner pass
by? Or a speedboat, or a
storm?
And with my ears open I
will also be the first one to
notice the sounds of a nearby
dolphin breathing, or whatev-
er sounds our wonderful
island nature offers.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Ryan
Smith of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office,
the city of Fernandina Reach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion 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" program 1-800-78CRIME
also allows callers to leave

Aggravated battery
A Fernandina Beach man
was arrested Monday after
allegedly intentionally crashing
his car info another and then
assaulting the car's driver.
Michael Ray Marsh, 42,631
Tarpon Ave., Fernandina
Beach, was charged with three
counts of felony aggravated bat-
tery and one count of misde-
meanor battery.
According to police reports,
a male friend. of Marsh's wife
told police he pulled into her
driveway to drop her off after
taking her to the store when he
saw Marsh's vehicle speeding
toward his.
Marsh allegedly drove his
car into the passenger side of
the vehicle where his wife sat.
As the male victim exited his
vehicle, Marsh allegedly got out
of his own car and attacked him.
Another man saw the alterca-
tion and pulled Marsh off the
victim, police said. Marsh then
,ivkgedly got into his car and
tried to run down both men
before fleeing the scene.


Marsh was later arrested at
a downtown bar.
According to the report, he
denied entering his wife's apart-
ment complex that evening, but
had scratches on his arms
and face consistent with a strug-
gle, and grass clippings, leaves
and dirt 'stuck to his clothing.
He was booked into the county
jail.
Truck stolen
A Callahan man was arrest-
ed Friday for allegedly stealing
a truck from Paul Clark Ford
in Yulee.
James Wilson Bailey Jr., 19,
44237 Cross Creek Blvd.,
Callahan, was charged with
felony vehicle theft.
According to police reports,
Bailey was pulled over Friday
night for driving without head-
lights. When the arresting offi-
cer asked to see his license and
registration, Bailey allegedly.
said the license plate on the
truck did not belong to that
vehicle. He also allegedly told
the officer that he was
employed at Paul Clark Ford
and had permission to remove
the truck, a 2011- Ford F-150,
from the lot.
Police contacted dealership
owner Paul Clark, who told
them that Bailey had never
been given permission to take
the truck. Clark confirmed that
the truck had been stolen from
the dealership, according to the
police report. Bailey then
allegedly admitted to stealing
the truck but said he had
planned to return it.
However, during a search of

covers designed for that truck
miid allegedly purchased by
Bailey.
Bailey was arrested and


transported to the county jail.

ing the glass door of a store in
a fit of pique after being denied

more.
According to police reports,
Wright entered the Kangaroo
convenience store at 850378 US

damaged, Wright became upset
and left. The clerk said he heard
a crash and looked up to see
the door glass broken and
Wright heading north on US
17.
Wright was located by sher-
iff's deputies at the intersection
of US 17 and Commercial Park
Drive. He allegedly told the

Volunteers



help police

HEATHER A. PERRY
.News Leader


They can be seen at vari-
ous local events in bright neon
vests emblazoned with the,
Police Auxiliary Corps logo.
These volunteers provide
security and traffic control at
events all over town through-
out the year. They take up
some of the duties that inor-
mally fall to officers, saving
department resources
because they do not earn a
paycheck.
The Corps has logged
thousands of volunteer hours
since its inception just prior
to the 2008 Shrimp Festival.
"PAC folks volunteered
over 1,600 hours last year,"
said Corps Commander Steve
Filkoff.
One of those special vol-
unteefs is John Harris.
."John's desire to help the
city and the police department
is widely known. John's been
a great asset to-PAC, and thus
to the city. His enthusiasm is
contagious and we all truly
appreciate all that he does for
us," said Filkoff. ,
When he was hospitalized
following a scooter accident
last year, Harris' biggest coin-
plaint was not the consider-
able pain or being highly
immobilized, but that he
would not be able to help
direct school traffic at the
intersection of Jasmine and
Citrona.
"After his surgery and
months of physical therapy,
John couldn't wait to tell me
the doctor had given him the
OK to do whatever he wanted
to do. I put him back on the

dedicated citizens a

schedule and he was back,
working the, intersection I lihe
very next day!" said Filkoff.
Harris has high praise.for
his fellow volunteers.
"They are a great group of
citizens giving their time and
energy to the Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
the people of Fernandina
Beach."
After vacationing. here
since the 1970s, Harris and
his wife Barbara moved to the
island nine years ago from the
Atlanta area.
"We knew from the begin-
ning this is where we wanted
to retire."
Prospective volunteers
must pass a background
check and receive training in
traffic control and first aid.

Crawford

warns of

jury scam
Nassau County Clerk and
Comptroller John A.
Crawford wants citizens who
may be needed for jury serv-
ice to know that they will
never receive an unsolicited
call from the Clerk's Office
about jury duty, nor will any-
one ask for a juror's Social
Security number.
Scams reported in South
Florida counties involve
fraudulent callers attempting
to collect fines for missing
jury duty and callers request-
ing personal information after
falsely claiming that an arrest
warrant had been issued for
missing jury duty.
"While these scams have
not reached Nassau County,
if you ever experience this
type of call, hang up and call
my office immediately," said
Crawford. "Do not give your
personal information to any-
one you don't know."
Prospective jurors receive
a summons by mail that con-
tains information that citizens
have already provided to the
Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles.

SPECIAL PHOTOS
Justin Howard, Capt. Bronson Stubbs and Daniel Roach, top from left, are pictured with Stubbs' 50-pound wahoo he boated during a recent fishing trip to Northeast Florida's
"Big Ledge." Doug Gies, right, took this 60-pound cobia recently while fishing aboard Stubbs' sports fishing boat "Vamanos." Stubbs speared a 40-pound cobia that was reluc-
tant in taking lures or baits, center. An African commercial fishing boat trolls for billfish and wahoo some 50 miles offshore of Ghana, Africa, left. No fishing rods and reels;
hand line fishing only.




Fishing adventures for 'Vamanos' crew


T he weekend of April
15-17 was picture
perfect for a wide
variety of deep-sea
pelagic game fish. This past
weekend saw winds blowing
up to 30 miles per hour and
fishermen were left with only
memories of theprevious
weekend's great fishing
action. "' ' '
Local angler Bronson
Stubbs timed his time off per-
fectly from his worldwide
travels aboard a large oil rig
survey boat Stubbs is co-cap-
tain of a ship that recently
spent time off Ghana, Africa,
where oil drilling and rigs are
active.
"Our ship was some 50
miles offshore of Ghana,
Africa, when'I took photos of
an African commercial fishing
boat," Stubbs said. "Their
boat was shaped like a canoe


and had a
very narrow
beam and-
low gunnels.
The Africans
were trolling
with hand
lines for bill-
fish and
wahoo."
. OU'DOORS Certainly
.... these had to
TerLacoss be brave
African fish-
ermen to fish so far from land
and from such a small vessel.
Stubbs also displays bravery
whenangling off his home
port of Amelia Island.
"Sunday we arrived at the
St. Marys sea buoy and
immediately ran into a nice
pod of cobia that were school-
ing at the large channel.mark-
er," Stubbs said. "Our fishing
party, including Doug Gies,


Billy McFadden and Gage
Ploegert, proceeded to cast a
variety of live baits and lures
to the school of St. Marys
cobia. However, after all of
our best angling efforts, the
school of cobia simply would
not eat." ,
Stubbs is a certified diver
and prepared his equipment
and spear gun to meet the
pod of cobia underwater.
"After diving some 15 feet
deep into the channel, I ran
smack into a large cobia and
took aim with my spear gun,"
Stubbs said. "It was a perfect
shot as the spear hit the cobia
just behind the head.
"Feeling the sting of the
spear, the cobia swam deep
for some 25 feet, dragging me
with it I wasn't about to let go
of my spear gun and held on
for dear life.
"Finally the cobia weak-


ened and I was able to bring
my catch back up to the sur-
face.".
"When Bronson popped
up to the surface, he had both
arms wrapped around the
shoulders of that cobia and
wasn't about to let go,"
McFadden said. "Everyone
on board was relieved .to see
Bronson swim back to the
surface after witnessing the
speared cobia dragging him
deep and out of sight."
The "Vamanos" fishing
party had begun their day of
cobia fishing by running
some 25 miles offshore to a
series of suriken wrecks in 95
feet of water. They spotted a
free-swimming cobia that
Gies was ableto entice with
his pink bucktail jig.
After a short fight, Giess'
cobia was gaffed and placed
in the boat's fish box.


The local Fernandina
Beach fishing party then
anchored up and fished deep
with live cigar minnows they
had jigged up at an inshore
live bottom. Flounder were
the catch of the day, weighing
to three pounds, but not one
single cobia came to the sur-'
face or wvas hooked deep.
Returning to the
Fernandina Harbor Marina
with a pair of 40- and 60-
pound cobia and a 10-keeper
flounder added up to a suc-
cessful deep water fishing trip
-for "Vamanos," particularly
considering blAck sea bass
and gag grouper are current-
ly off limits until May 1. The
harvesting of red snapper is
closed indefinitely.
On the day before, Stubbs
captained "Vamanos" to the
"Big Ledge" with fellow fish-
ermen Justin Howard, Daniel


Roach, Lisa Crowley and
Christine Skarpelezos.
"We began trolling plastic
lures in 1,000 feet of water
and came up with one lone
dolphin that ate a Mold Craft
chugger," Stubbs said. 'We
trolled back to the ledge in
hopes of finding a good
wahoo bite and right away
found clear Water and flying
fish. On the first pass, a 50-
pound wahoo took one of the
wire line plugs and I soon had
a 50-pound wahoo iced down
in the fish box. We actually
missed several strikes before
boating a 35-pound wahoo.
"We could not have asked
for a prettier weekend with
seas running less than one
foot."
With the arrival of cobia
and wahoo, local fishermen.
may once again showcase
fresh fish for dinner.

Grouperseason opens
The recreational harvest of shallow-water
groupers in Gulf of Mexico state and federal
waters off Florida, except in all waters of
Monroe County, reopened April 1. However,
the recreational harvest of gag grouper is still
prohibited in Gulf federal waters off Florida
(beyond nine nautical miles from shore). Also,
persons on federally permitted for-hire reef
fish vessels may not harvest or possess gag
grouper in both federal and state Gulf waters
(within nine nautical miles from shore).


The Gulf recreational shallow-water group-
er fishery (gag, black, red, yellowfin, scamp,
yellowmouth, rock hind and.red hind) has
been closed since Feb. 1 to protect gag
grouper, often found and caught with the*other
grouper species. This two-month closure dur-
ing Gulf grouper spawning season helps
reduce-overfishing of gag grouper and rebuild
its populations so that larger annual harvests
may be possible in the future.
The Florida Fish and' Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission also reminds fishermen that
the recreational and commercial harvest of
shallow-water groupers (including gag, black
grouper, red grouper, scamp, red hind, rock
hind, coney, graysby, yellowfin grouper, yel-
lowmouth grouper, and tiger grouper) remains
closed until May 1 in all Atlantic Ocean and
Monroe County waters. Visit

Celebration Two crowned FDSL champ


Celebration Baptist
Church Team Two won an 11-
team tournament Saturday to
be crowned 2011 Family Driv-
en Softball League champi-
ons.
The FDSL played under a
new format this year; the reg-
ular season record was used
for seeding purposes for what
is now called "Championship
Saturday." Team Two took
the top seed with a 10-1
record.
The fun part of a tourna-
ment such as this is it gives
teams that might have had
several losses during the reg-
ular season a chance to win a
championship.
But all things ran pretty
much to form as the team
with the second-best record,
The Journey Church Team
One (9-2), took second place
in the tournament.,


Since the inception of the
FDSL, Celebration Two has
yet to lose in tournament play.
In Celebration's trip to the
championship game, it defeat-
ed Journey Three 24-14,
Celebration One 14-11 and
the Springhill Angels 12-8
before defeating Journey One
in the championship 16-8.
Journey One had a tough
time getting to the champi-
onship game; their bats went
cold and the Angels defeated
Journey One 16-2.
Several games later,
Journey One took on the
Angels again for the right to
play Celebration Two for the
championship. This time The
Journey's bats were on fire as
they defeated the Angels 25-
11
By the end of the day
Journey One had played
seven games in one after-


noon. The sparkplugs for
Team Two in the champi-
onship game were Taylor
Massey (three hits in four at-
bats with a home run and two
doubles), Will Harris (three
hits in four at-bats) and play-
er-coach Chris Spivey (four-
for-four with a triple, a double
and a home run). '
Along With Spivey, Massey
and Harris, members of Team
Two are Alisha DeAngelo,
Herman Cook, Ada Cook,
Brandon Ross, Sal Ortiz,
David Massey, Robin Massey,
Mike Brown, Jamie Wilcox,
Robert Hess and Cpurtney
Hess.
Paul Maguson and Blaine
Dickinson both went four-for-
four for The Journey in the
championship game. The
Springhill Angels placed third
on the (lay.
Before "Championship


Saturday," the FDSL celebrat-
ed the season Friday night
with the third annual banquet
in which 185 people attended.
The banquet was held at the
Springhill Baptist Church
Family Life Center. Lannie
Road Baptist Church won the
Christ Fellowship Award for
the second straight year.
On April 30, as part of
Shrimp Festival weekend, the
FDSL will sponsor the Sons of
Thunder Christian softball
tournament at Springhill
Baptist Church. This will be
an open men's tournament for
church teams.
Games are played at the
FDSL fields on Nassauville
Road.

. Rookie Brendan Steele shot
a 1-under-par 71, overcom-
'T ing 30-mph wind gusts and
fellow first-year PGA Tour
player Kevin Chappell for a
one-stroke victory at the Texas Open
in San Antonio on Sunday. "I'm not
even sure what's going on right now,"
Steele said. "I'm just trying to capture
it all in my mind." The tournament's
73.665 scoring average was the
highest this year.


Italian teenager Matteo
V Manassero shot a 4-under 68
Sunday to earn a one-stroke
'- victory at the Malaysian Open,
upstaging Masters champion Charl
Schwartzel and Rory Mcllroy. Manassero had
an eagle on the par-5 10th and added two
birdies on the back nine to finish at 16-under
272 two days before his 18th birthday.
Mcllroy, who lost a four-shot lead last week at
the Masters with a final-round 80, needed a
birdie on the final hole to force a playoff with
Manassero. Mcllroy wound up three-putting
for a bogey that gave him a 69 and third
place. Schwartzel shot a 70 and finished tied
for 11th at 7-under 281.


While we rarely see it happen from a professional golfer, the shank is an all too famil-
iar shot in the arsenal of the amateur golfer. The main cause for the shank is that the
clubface remains open through impact. When we strike the ball, the hosel'of the dub
3 is what hits the ball. Consequently, the ball shoots off at virtually a 90 degree angle
to the trajectory that we are expecting when we line up to hit it. One of the easiest
fixes to the problem is to position the ball in the hosel of the club and attempt to hit
the ball with the toe of the club. What this accomplishes is that it makes you bring the dub back
to the'ball from the inside. The other bit of advice is to make sure that your left forearm rotates
completely through impact. This makes sure the club rotates all the way through after contact.

Chocolate bunnies best at Easter


This time of year thoughts
often turn to the idea of fuzzy
bunnies. Pet shops begin to
promote rabbits as gifts for
the holidays. But there is a
down side to this idyllic pic-
ture of cuddly bunnies and
laughing children playing
together.
Organizations such as the
Humane Society of the
United States (HSUS) and
People for the Ethical
Treatment
of Animals
(PETA),
have long
S opposed pet
stores that
sell live ani-
mals,
including
puppies, kit-
TM fens and
HAPPY rabbits.
PET Simply put,
too many of
.... these ani-
Laurie mals end up
Buckley in shelters.
Behind dog
and cats, rabbits are thethird
most frequently surrendered'
animals in shelters.
Approximately, 35,000 rabbits
are turned over to shelters
ever year. And rabbits pose
particular challenges to shel-
ters that often are unable to
meet their specific housing
and dietary needs.
That is also a considera-
tion for potential pet owners,
Long gone are the days of
sticking a rabbit fn a pen in
the back yard or garage.
Rabbits are creatures with
individual personalities and
specific needs. They need
proper care both physically
and socially. Today, rabbits
are considered house pets.
. They live inside the home


A poster from the House Rabbit Society (www.rabbit.
org) urges consumers not to buy live bunnies as Easter
presents.


and are litter boxed trained
just like cats. While often
kept in some type of large
indoor enclosure, rabbits
need supervised time outside
of their pens every day. They
are social animals and must
spend time in the company of
their human owners in order
to be healthy and happy.
Contrary to popular belief,
rabbits, although small in
size, are n6t a great choice of
pet for children. Rabbits are
nervous and timid creatures.
The noise and activity of chil-
dren is often stressful for
them. They are also ground-
dwelling creatures, which
means that while they like to
be petted, they don't like to
be held. Anybody who has
ever held and been kicked by
the powerful legs of a rabbit


can attest to this!
The proper care of rabbits
also has a significant financial
commitment. Like other pets,
rabbits need to be spayed and
neutered. Those that aren't
often spay urine to mark their
territory. Do I need to say
more about the endless trou-
blesome possibilities of keep-
ing un-sterilized rabbits
together?
The cost of creating a
proper environment and
meeting their dietary needs
can also add up. In addition to
sterilization, routine veteri-
narian care and housing, rab-
bits need timothy hay and
fresh vegetables on a daily
basis.
And if you think your
puppy is a destructive chew-
er, you haven't seen anything


until you've seen the damage
an unsupervised rabbit can
do to walls, furniture, electri-
cal and phone lines. That
being said, rabbits need plen-
ty of appropriate chewtoys.
Here are a couple of other
little known facts about rab-
bits. Rabbits are crepuscular
animals, which means that
they sleep during the day and
night and are most active at
dusk and dawn. I don't know
about you, but those are not
times of the day when I have
a lot of free time. In addition,
rabbits live on average 10
years, which means that
potential owners must be pre-
pared to make a long-term
commitment.
None of this is meant to
deter those that are seriously
considering adopting a rabbit.
The information is intended
to ward off impulse buying of
baby bunnies. An excellent
source of information about
rabbits is the House Rabbit
Society (rabbit.org). They
also help to promote rabbits
that are up for adoption.
So as with all new pets, it
is vitally important that own-
ers do their research first,
before adopting or purchas-
ing any pet. Preparation can
make the all difference in cre-
ating a fun experience for
your family and your pet

Good day, I am Katherine,
and I am looking for a place to
call my forever home. Let
me tell you a little about
myself. I am about 3-4 years
old, I am very social with oth-
ers, current on all of my med-
ical and, yes, I have only three
legs. At first when I arrived at
RAIN after just having my leg
removed, I struggled to do
regular things, but now I have
adjusted fine to my special
need, and function like every-
one else. I recently had a
beauty day at the Cat Clinic of
Fernandina Beach, and Dr.
Ashley and staff made me
even more good-looking than
I already was with a new hair-
do. I am very friendly and
would love to be part of some-
one's life forever. If you are
interested in adopting me


from RAIN Humane Society,
please call (904) 879-5861 or
email rainhumane@yahoo.

meeting you.
