Strike up the (FBMS) band!
HEATHER PERRY
News-Leader I ,_ . VA ",


The Fernandina Beach Middle
School Symphonic Band scored a
hat trick when it was awarded three
trophies at OrlandoFest, a nation-
wide music festival held April 1 and
2.
The Superior trophy was for out-
standing performance and the Gold
trophy was awarded for best middle
school performance.
But the Grand Champion title was
the best award of all.
"The title of Grand Champion
puts Fernandina Beach Middle
School as the festival champions,
beating every middle school, high
school and concert band that per-
formed over the weekend," said
teacher Renee Thompson.
"During the awards ceremony,
which was held at Universal Studios
in the Animal Aciors Amphitheater,
the filled-to-capacity crowd cheered
as FBMS won the Superior, Gold and
Grand Champion trophies."
Congratulations go to Director
Johnnie Robinson and students
Chris Bernard, Michaela Berry,
Isaac Blair, Emmy Clark, Julia Clark,

Drew



to cut



budget



10%
RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Tax Collector's
Office's 2011-12 budget will shrink by
10 percent over this year's budget of
$2.5 million, according to Finance
Director Michael Love.
The Nassau County Commission
asked the county's constitutional offi-
cers to make a 10 percent cut to their
budgets in preparation for a projected
$5 million decrease in property tax
revenue this year. However, the clerk
of court, property appraiser and super-
visor of elections were unable to com-
mit to the cuts.
"We've hit bottom," Clerk of Court
John Crawford told the commission
April 20. "... There is no more. We are
doing more with less.".
Tax Collector John Drew, however,
told the board his 2011-42 budget had
already been cut by 8 percent, and he
plans to cut another
2 percent by the
time the budget is
due Aug. 1.
Michael Love
said Monday that
cuts are being con-
sidered in many
areas.
"We have three Drew
categories of our
budget," he said.
"The first is personal services. ... Then
there's operating costs, then there's
capital outlay."
" Personal services, Love said, deal
with payroll and personnel expenses,
while capital outlay goes toward major
purchases such as computers. All
areas of the budget are on the table for
reductions, he said.
'We will have a reduction, primarily
in operating and through some
retirements we also hope to have a
reduction in personal services," he
said. "... And what do you do when
times are tough? You buy fewer com-
puters and less equipment. So in cap-
ital outlay, you reduce there too and
make do with less."
Love said the final shape of the
cuts won't be clear until the property
appraiser releases the final tax rolls in
the summer, giving the county a cleat-
er picture of its financial situation.
"Most of the work will be done in
mid-July," he said. "We have to wait
until we see the assessed (tax) roll
from-the property appraiser.... I will
have at least a 10 percent reduction."

Tips for teaching kids to swim


Rita Goldberg can't
believe some people still
teach kids to swim by prover-
bially throwing them in the
water to see if they sink or
swim instinctively.
"Many parents and even
some traumatic swim pro-
grams still use that ancient
and ridiculous method of
introducing children to swim-
ming by throwing them into
the water without any knowl-
edge about swimming what-
soever and all they are
doing is teaching their chil-
dren how to be terrified of
the water," said Goldberg, a
former national swimmer in
Great Britain, owner of a
.swimming school and author
of the children's book I Love
to Swim (www.ilove-
toswimthebook.com).
"These advocates claim
they.are teaching survival,
but I believe teaching sur-
Sval ,tin be and should be
gentle and fun," she said.
Goldberg's lament is that
too many children drown
nedlessly every year, and
too, many parents are either
resistant to teaching their
toddlers to swim, or teach
them the wrong way.
"No child, and I mean no
child, has to ever drown in a
swimming pool again if they
are taught how to survive in
the water the right way and
at the earliest possible age,"
she added. "Drowning is
actually the second leading
: /cause of, accidental death in
t,,.the country. It is leading in

and the
real
tragedy is

can even process calm
thought, when we are afraid?
Children are no different.
They need to be given the
tools to survival and draw
their confidence in the water
from that knowledge. We
want kids to respect the
water, not fear it."
Goldberg's tips for teach-
ing kids to swim include:
Start young New stud-
ies show that the best age to.
teach a child to swim is
between the ages of six and'
12 months. Just as parents
are learning this is a good
time to teach children how to
read, they are beginning to'
understand this is a time
when children are able to
absorb information like
sponges. Teaching them to
swim at this early age is a
great way to make swimming
second nature to them.
Float to survive As a
supplement to safeguarding
your kids through extra vigi-
lant supervision and a safety
gate around the pool, focus
on giving your child the best
lifesaving tool you could offer
them the ability to survive
in the water. '"The first gift I


give children when I teach
them is the ability to float on
their backs. This is the most
important survival skill of all.
This enables all swimmers to
rest, breathe and call for
help, thus alleviating the
'silent' danger of floating face
down," said Goldberg.
Gentle and fun Swim-
ming will come more natural-
ly to children who are taught
gently, without' trauma, and '
with a senshof nfm: You can-
not teatf'a 2-y ~ai-bld n6t to
go near the swimming pool.
You cannot teach them that
the pool is dangerous.
Parents see the swimming
pool as'a potential death trap
for their kids, but all kids see
is a big, wet playground.
You're not going to change -
their opinion, so stop trying.
Focus on calm, gentle' fun
and your kids will take to
their lessons like fish to
water.
"Parents need to under-
stand that playing in a swim-
ming pool is the same as
playing on dry land to chil-
dren," she added. "It's all
play to them. While it's
important for them to feel
confident in the water, we
need to help temper that con-
fidence with a strong sense
of safety and good judgment.
Adhering to those rules as
parents will serve to rein-
force those rules, however,
the best way to pull it all
together is to start them
young. Once both swimming
and safety are second nature
to them, they'll be safer and
your supervision of them in
the water will be more fun for
everyone."

TAX Continued from IA
Love said the 'Tax
Collector's Office, which is
Lunded by the fees it collects,
is still generating revenue not
only for itself, but also for the
county.
"People are still paying
their taxes, renewing their car
tags," he said.
Any unspent revenue the
office collects is disbursed to
various taxing authorities at
the end of the fiscal year, he
said.
"Those dollars are due to
the board October 1. Since
2006, we've given back $5.2
million to the board," Ixve
said.
"The board of commis-
sioners receives the lion's
share, because they pay for
their own tax collection cost as
well as the school board's tax
collection costs."
Love added that the tax col-
lector's new facility at 450077
State Road 200; Suite 13,
Callahan which will issue
driver's licenses should open
up a new revenue stream.
"We're looking for and pur-

generated about $457,000 in
additional fees. By opening
the Callahan branch, Love
said he hopes to bring in cus-
tomers from the West Side
who would ordinarily go to
Jacksonville to renew their
licenses, as well as out-of-
county customers.
"What we've found
through our research is that
Nassau County residents
spend $30,000 a year getting
their driver licenses in
Jacksonville," he said. "We
want that money too. We fig-
ure it's people on the West
Side. ... To them, parts of
Jacksonville are closer than
Fernandina Beach. But three
of those (Duval County)
offices are closed, so by open-
ing in Callahan, we are posi-
tioned not only to gain back
that $30,000, but to capture
some of Duval."
Love said he expects the
Callahan office to bring in
"hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars." Already, he said, it's pro-
jected to do land-office busi-
ness by the end of the fiscal
year.
"In Callahan we're pro-
jecting that from May to
September we'll bring in
between $70,000 and $90,000,"
he said.


School board debates contract


KATHIECOLGROVE
Community Newspapers

A heated debate erupted
over the contract renewal of a
Nassau County School Board
attorney April 14.
School board member
Amanda Young suggested that
board members seek a request
for proposal to ensure that the
school system is receiving a
good deal for Leonard Hackett's
legal services.
She suggested that the
school board send it to show
due diligence and prudence in
reducing budget costs.
"I tell you that I have some
concerns because I know as a
school district we are uphold-
ing our end of the obligation on
this contract, but.I don't believe
that it's mutual," Young said. "I
think there have been three seri-
ous breaches that we need to
consider and that we need to
point out and I can name three
right now."
She first cited Hackett's
absence from a joint meeting
between the county commis-
sioners and the school board
Jan. 25 due to a deposition.
Young said according to a clause
in Hackett's contract, he should
have had a colleague present in
the eventvoting action could be
taken.
Superintendent Dr. John
Ruis said there was no indica-
tion or intent for any voting
action during the Jan. 25 meet-
ing.
"Ms. Young, we weren't
going to take any voting action
on that, that evening," he said.
"You're mistaken about that."
School Board Chairwoman
Donna Martin said she under-


stood that th e meeting would
involve onlvy discussions. She
added that because it wasn't a
regular meeting, it did not fall
into the constraints of Hackett's
contract.
In response to Young's con-
cerns, Hackett said he spent an
hour with County Attorney
David Hallman the day of the
meeting in question to discuss
the proposed issue. He then
called Ruis to inform him of the
details of his meeting with
Hallman.
Hackett added that if Young
had any questions about his
absence, she could have called
him.
"If you have any concerns
with that joint meeting, you
should have called me," Hackett
said. "I would have gave you a
simple answer. We're a team up
here. Pick up the phone and
give me a call. I would have
explained it. If there isa hidden
agenda that I'm not aware of, I
apologize."
Young said based on her
research, Hackett's contract
requires him to. attend execu-
: .... _-.-,- She noted that he
did not attend an executive ses-
sion 'Oct. 28 regarding collec-
tive bargaining. She said
Hackett should attend all meet-
ings or have a "well-informed"
representative present when the
school board will take voting
actions. -
flackett said he has limited

participation during collective
bargaining sessions but has no
problems attending those meet-
ings if the school board so
desires.
Young went on to say that
there is no language in
Hackett's contract that stipu-
lates whether the law firm rep-
resenting him has malpractice
insurance.
Young said she also objects
to a clause that violated statu-
tory language regarding a stip-
ulation that allows termination
pending the superintendent's
recommendation. Young said
the clause limits the school
board's control.
She made a motion to
remove Hackett's contract
from consideration and go out
for bid.
In answer to her concern
about the malpractice insurance
clause, he said based on the size
of the firm he represents, she
could rest assured it has mal-
practice insurance.
Hackett said he has worked
for the school board for the past
sixyears and has not requested
a pay raise.
"If you can find an attorney
that will do what I do for this
school board for a lesser price,


I resign," he said.
School board itn'inlbTr Kat hy
Burns said Young's concerns
appeared to be a personal
attack.
"In all clue respect, this is not
a personal attack," Young said.
"This is business."
She also said that Hacketi
has also failed to update the
school board on Florida
Sunshine Law violation allega-
tions that were brought to his
attention in October.,
Hackett said he awaits a
response from the presiding
judge before the issue can be
moved forward.
Following the discussion, the
school board voted 4-1 to uphold
Hackett's contract and that ter-
mination may occur by either
party with or without cause,
including a stipulation that both
Hackett and the school board
receive a 60-day notice.
Young was the lone dis-
senter.
Since 2004, Hackett has
served the school board under
three two-year contracts of
$22,793 through Vernis and
Bowling law firm, according to
Executive Director of
Administrative Services Sharyl
Wood.


PARADE
Continued from 1A
was too young to begin
shrihiping, his brother Alvin
won first place in the shrimp-
boat race on his boat Lady
Bell.
"We had a good time back
then," he says. "We used to
have street dances. It was
more family oriented."
Dickey has traveled as fai-
south as Freeport, Texas to
net the shrimp catch, and
knows all the old-time
shrimpers in Fernandina .
Beach and elsewhere.
Although his shrimping
days are over, Dickey, who
lives across from Lang's


Marina in downtown St.
Marys, still works on the
water when he can. He assists
with "relocation trawling" for
sea turtles for Coastwise
Consultants and the Georgia
Bulldog research vessel from
the University of Georgia. He
also occasionally runs the
ferry boat to Cumberland
Island.
"I liked being away on the
water," he says. "It was quiet.
Now I'm home too much."
Home is the brick ranch
house that Dickey's father
built in 1956, with:spectacular
views of the sparkling.St. i
Marys River. He lives there
with his wife, Wanda.
"I appreciate representing


the shrimpers," Dickey says
of his Grand Marshal honor,
"although some people might
say I'm from St. Marys. I've
been shrimping all my life.
It's something I've always
done."
The pre-festival Pirate
Parade will be held at 6 p.m.
Thursday along Centre Street
to the theme of "Shrimping
on Island Time."
The 48th annual Isle of
Eight Flags Shrimp Festival is
scheduled for Friday through
Sunday in downtown
Fernandina Beach,

Budget battles just beginning


T he budget battles are
just beginning in the
public sector, with
unbridled spending
pitted against fiscal frugality
Duval County educators
fired an opening foray, threat-
ening to cancel athletics at
public schools for lack of
funding. Then commissioners
in Jacksonville Beach may
cancel an area jazz concert
and a summer movie to save
money. (But haven't we seen
this movie before?)
And Atlantic Beach offi-
cials are considering the can-
cellation of a longtime parade
and the annual Fourth of July
fireworks there. Meanwhile,
Nassau County officials have
toyed with closing the book
on two libraries and moth-
balling a few fire trucks.
These cancellations and
closings are all in response to
tighter btd:gets fagd-by
towns, counties and-schoqbl
boards in our area ,' ;

to share
their pain in
the difficult,
yet
inevitable,
spending
cuts.
These are
trying times
- for fami-
lies, busi-
nesses and
municipali-
ties. As the
economy
slowly recov-
ers, resi-


dents and businesses are
gradually rebounding finan-
cially, but municipalities will
lag.
Cities, counties and school
boards rely primarily on prop-
erty tax revenues in Florida.
These taxes are collected in
arrears, which means they lag
-by one year. And property val-
ues are just beginning to sta-
bilize.
Therefore, not only will
this be a difficult budget year
for municipalities, next year


will again be trying. Any
proactive downsizing or
reductions now will help in
the future.
Canceling fireworks or
parades or athletics hardly
will accomplish what is need-
ed. These are events or activi-
ties that cost thousands of
dollars, when millions have to
be pared.
Or else, tax rates and fees
will be increased (not exactly
what a fragile economy
needs). This is a likely out-
come unless public officials
are resoundingly frugal in
their decisions, which could
include layoffs. This is the
path the private sector has
typically pursued in economic
downturns but not the pub-
lic sector.
Local officials are used to
having more money at their
fingertips than they can
spend, so they find creative
outlets. Well, they must now
be creative in closing these
outlets and loopholes. '
Public spending has run
amok in the good times, but

officials are hesitant in some
cases to pare back responsi-
bly in bad times. This leads to
a hasty conclusion that every-
thing that can be cut has been
cut and, in turn, miniscule
expenses such as parades and
concerts and fire trucks must
be eliminated.
Or else, they contend the
only option is to raise taxes to
preserve essential municipal
services. If most government
entities were efficiently run,
citizens might go along with
slight tax increases but
this is hardly the case.
In a dissection of one local
budget, a newspaper editor
uncovered frivolous underpin-
ntings, such as pet projects
and giveaways and unneces-
sary departments. Citizens
must pressure their elected
officials to favor frugality in
this process between now and
the fall.
In this way, the true win-
ners of the budget battles will
be residents and businesses.

Home sales, prices


decline in March in


Northeast Florida


JACKSONVILLE The
Northeast Florida Association
of Realtors (NEFAR)
announced a decline in real
estate sales and prices in
March. Statistics encompass
both single-family residential
and condo sales.
Nationwide, sales of exist-
ing-home sales rose in March,
according- to the National
Association of Realtors.
Existing-home sales, includ-
ing single-family residences
and condominiums and co-
ops, increased 3.7 percent to a
seasonally adjusted annual
rate of 5.10 million in March
from February but were 6.3
percent below the pace in
March 2010.
.In Florida, existing home
and existing condo sales rose
statewide in March, accord-
ing to the latest housing data
released by Florida Realtors.
Existing home sales increased
12 percent last month and
existing condo sales last
month rose 24 percent com-
pared to the year-ago sales fig-
ure.
In the Jacksonville area,
pending sales proper ties on
which contracts were written
but the sale had not closed -
were up 3.9 percent over
March 2010, reaching 1,909.
Closed sales did not fare as


well, with 1,438 closed sales
representing a 7:1 percent
decline from last March.
Northeast Florida area sale
prices in March also lagged
behind last year's figures. The
March 2010 median sales
price was $137,500 but this
March's median dropped 10.9
percent to $122,500.
Of the 1,438 homes sold in
the Jacksonville area during
March, 612 were traditional
sales and 826 were lender-
mediated sales. While the
$174,000 median sales price
of traditional homes actually
increased 8.7 percent year-
over-year, the lender-mediat-
ed properties' median sales
price dropped to $88,500; a
13.2 percent decline.
Months supply of invento-
ry are tilting toward normalcy,
dropping 26.8 percent to reach
nine months of inventory on
hand. A market is considered
balanced when there is five-
to six-months worth of inven-
tory.
NEFAR President Dane
'Leslie said, "After last year's
federal tax incentives to buy
a home, it is not a big surprise
to see a drop in March 2011's
numbers. With pending sales
continuing to be robust, how-
ever, there is clearly demon-
strated interest from con-
sumers who have the desire to
buy a home."
NEFAR is Northeast
Florida's largest professional
association, comprising more
than 4,900 members working
in all facets of the real estate
industry, including residential
and commercial sales as well
as property management. All
Nassau and St. Johns County
realtors are not participants
and reports provided do not
represent the full extent of
realtor sales in those counties.

Hospital food delicious


at Baptist Nassau
HEFATHIER A. PERRY
News-Leader


It may be surprising to
learn that roast beef with beef
burgundy sauce served with
baked potato and
broccoli/cauliflower blend or
pork, red pepper and aspara-
gus stir fry served over
brown rice are menu items on
patient trays at Baptist
Medical Center Nassau.
Patient menus also include
vegan, vegetarian and gluten-
free options.
Dietician Mary K. Snyder,
who plans out the meals for
the 54-bed facility, said, "As a
hospital we must provide
these options as well as any
other diet prescribed by the
physician. Providing medical
nutrition therapy is a very big
part of many patients' treat-
ment."
She added, "BMC Nassaul
has a great food service staff
who are very conscientious
about providing not just what
a patient is supposed to
receive on their prescribed
diet, but are willing to go out
of their way to accommodate
preferences within that diet
prescription."
The hospital's Wellness
Menu is based on the 2010
Dietary Guidelines for
Americans released Jan. 31 by
the U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
"Melanie Robertson, our
food service director, and I
met and agreed that we
should take the lead as a
health care organization to
promote good nutrition within
our patient menu program,"
said Snyder.
Meats are baked or grilled,
sauces are low fat and fish or
chicken is always an option.
Herbs are used to season
foods instead of salt, to stay
within the guidelines for sodi-
um content.
All that extra care and
careful attention to detail does

VIEWPOINT/ORIANDO AVILA/YULEE


New li
O ver the past few
weeks we have
heard from a pletho-
ra of individuals who
have waxed poetic about the
future of the library in down-
town Fernandina. Many are
for a new library, others are
against. The pros and cons of
each side have been argued
in a civil and friendly manner
for the most part. No name-
calling, diatribes full of filth
and foul or other unseemly
behavior. For this I am glad,
however a particular demo-
graphic has been absent from
this discussion, that is, until
now. What demographic, do
you ask? What of the current
tenants of the central building
on Centre Street? The'Wade-
Vuturo building, or 402
Centre. Well, now that'void
has been filled. :!''
I work for Green Island
Maritime, a vessel agency that
is a division of Seaboard
Marine, a shipping company
whose vessels call our. little

seven of us here, we are a
small office yes, but there is
also the Tourist Development
Council; My Web Refresh, a
small website design compa-
ny; a realtor, the Nassau
County Republican Party; and
a lone employee from
PetroFerm, the previous
anchor tenant in the building.
To be honest, I cannot speak
for anyone other than myself
and perhaps my colleagues in
our office. We like this build-
ing; it affords us professional,,
clean office space at a reason-
able rate and makes coming
to work a pleasant experience.
I would venture to guess our
fellow tenants feel somewhat
the same.
Now, in regard to this pro-
posed library possibly being
located in the building we call
our home away from home 5-6
days out of the week, I see a
lot of flaws:

in itself: The building is nearly

to be sold at bargain basement
prices, it tops a million dollars.
If I was the owner, with an
almost fully rented building,
I'd take the rent payments and
at least pay the interest on the
note until the market picks up,
then sell for as top a dollar as I
could get.
2) The renovation costs:
This building was built as a
bank in its heyday, which
means concrete walls, floors,
etc. It takes a little more than
spackle and nails to fix that
stuff.
3) Foot traffic: From our
office we can see the current

some traffic but it is no stam-
pede. The last time I was in
there, which was last year
sometime, there weren't that
many people there reading,
most were using the comput-
ers, and not for research, I can
tell you that much. As for it
being a draw to tourists, I hate
to burst a few bubbles, but
folks don't go on vacations to
go to the library; out-of-state
visitors can't check out books
since they are not Florida resi-
dents, and I for one have
never gone to a public library
while on vacation.
4) Practicality: The popula-
tion center of the county is not

5) Budget woes: The coun-
ty commissioners dutifully set
aside some funds to pay for
this project, but with shrink-

that money may have to go
elsewhere. If the county owns

Hard wear

So I was playing a video game the other
night, and I forgot to save my progress
when I quit for the evening. My first
thought was, "Great! Four hours wasted!
Now I'm going to have to kill all 700 of
those KGB agents again." My second
thought was, "If I consider those last four
hou-s wasted only because I forgot to save
my game, perhaps I should reevaluate my
life."
As an official tail-end
Gen-Xer, I've been the tar-
get demographic of the
home video game industry
since its inception, but I've
never really been that into
video games. That's why
my four-hour play-a-thon
ll took me by surprise it's a
rare-day when I even pop a
NEWS- game into the system. My
ROOM parents -who, like me,
VIEWS own ia Nintendd Wii reg-.
r ularly pla- .owling and
exercise games on their
Ryan Smith system. I use my Wii
almost exclusively to
watch Netflix movies, and to browse news
stories in a Glenn Beck-free environment.
When I play a video game, it's usually a
word game like Boggle, and I play it on my
iPod or my laptop, while the two Wii games
I own gather dust. Rarely do I indulge in a
multi-hour digital killing spree. To be fair,
the game that occasioned my recent four-
hour marathon was a James Bond game,
and since every man secretly wants to be
James Bond, giving in to the temptation was
perhaps inevitable. But it's such a rare
occurrence with me that it took me, aback.
"But I don't even like video games!" I
thought. : "
And yet, looking back on my life, I-real-
ize that I've been an active, if somewhat
desultory, participant in the gaming world.
As a child and.teenager, I owned a
Nintendo, a Super 1Nintendo and a Nintendo
64. As an adult I've owned an Xbox, a
Playstation, an Xbox 360 and now a Wii. I
have, in other words, spent hundreds of dol-
lars over the years on game systems.
And yet I don't think I've ever owned
more than four video games at a time, at
least in my adult life. This is because for
every compulsively playable game on the
market, there are approximately 100 other
games that are about as fun as getting'
kicked in the face by David Beckham. So
I've spent hundreds of dollars over the
years on hardware I barely use, to play soft-
ware that's mostly awful. That's a lot of
wasted money except in the case of the
Wii, which lets you play games, watch
movies, check your email, read the news
and see the weather forecast for anywhere
in the world. But my previous systems,
which only played games, and thus mostly
gathered dust? Criminal wastes.
Almost as criminal as the four hours I
plan to waste tonight killing more KGB
agents.

Leader.

'Boomtowners' vs. homeowners


The issue of short-term rentals, long
regulated to the ashes, or at least that
was the hope, has been rekindled,
fanned by an unlikely pair "boom-
towners," interest groups and individuals
eager and willing to sacrifice traditional ele-
ments of our quality of life, the fabric of com-
munity, for economic gain, and disgruntled
absentee property owners, speculators really,
made poorer by a fragile economy.
This rekindling, this fanning of the coals is
somewhat surprising, given that the ordinance
they find so offensive was thought to be an
acceptable compromise, grandfatheringg" all
existing rentals while prohibiting future ones.
In other words, if you had been renting your
property and had the evidence to prove it, you
were "grandfathered," if you had no evidence,
you couldn't.
The above grandfatheringg" clause was a
concession. I know, because I was the initiator
and sponsor of the ordinance and I wanted no
grandfatheringg." To me, single-family residen-
tial zoning meant just that, residential only, no
commercial activity, and renting one's house
was commercial activity; to accept that activity,
to sanction it, was to accept corruption of resi-
dential zoning which was, well, unacceptable.
My insistence was a losing proposition, howev-
er, hence the compromise.
My feelings on this issue, once so concrete,
were to change virtually overnight. Remember,
I had grown up in.Fernandina Beach in the
'50's.and '60's when beach rentals were com-
monplace, accepted, so initially, when I met
with a group of South Fletcher property. own-
ers one summer afternoon, I was unsympathet-
ic regarding their insistence that something be
done about the "problem."
The "problem." was, according to the home-
owners, that everything in my idealized 50's
and 60's version of the beach had changed: the

number of rentals had
changed, from a relatively
small number to an astronom-
ical one, the ratio of resi-
dences to rentals had
changed decidedly in favor
of rentals, and that the
renters, the people, had
changed, and that the season
had changed, from when
everyone went home after
Iabor Day to year-round.
I listened, for over two
hours, as they described hor-
ror story after horror story,
incident after incident. Then,
they asked a series of ques-


tions for which my answers were obvious and
uncomfortable. They were:
"We are in an R-1 zone, single-family resi-
dential, or R-2, single-family, but duplexes are
OK. Is R-1 or R-2 different for people at the
beach, or is it the same throughout the city?"
Answer: It's the same; no difference.
"If it's the same, do people in other
parts of town have to put up with weekend
renters, pr weekly? Do they have to put up with
the loud music at 2 in the morning, the cars
when two or three families, plus friends, are
renting?" No, they don't. No one in any other
part of town would put up with that, they would
expect the city to protect them from those,
things.
"If people in other parts of town,
with the same zoning, aren't expected to put up
with the noise, the cars, the traffic; why should
we?"
You shouldn't. Quiet enjoyment of'property
is a right of all homeowners, regardless of
where you live, and the notion 'that the beach is
different, that homeowners there are different,
, is not only noxious but dangerous.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


City marina
In response to Coleman Lang-
shaw's opinion (April 13) concerning
the Fernandina Harbor Marina, it's
time to set the record straight.,
First, let's talk about the retail
store. Mr. Langshaw suggests that
the city receives only 25 percent of
the revenue and Westrec 75 per-
cent. The reality is that you must
buy goods before they can be sold.
With the average cost of sales at
approximately 58 percent (of rev-
enue) that leaves the city at a guar-
anteed 25 percent and Westrec 17
percent Furthermore, Westrec paid
the entire cost of the retail store
buildout at a price of over $49,000 (at
no expense to the city) and Westrec
continues to pay for all of the store
inventory.
\ Mi. Laiigshaw'eg6nilhehtis aboit
Westrec not knowing about the sil-
tation issues or implying that
Westree somehow did not do their
due diligence with that regard is
ridiculous. This not only was
addressed in the RFP but the prob-'
lems with siltation in the area in gen-
eral are well documented.
v. Westrec's agreement with the
city called for the marina to be
dredged to a 6-foot depth prior to our
assumption of the management of
the facility. Mr. Langshaw was part
of the committee that wrote the doc-
ument, and he was fully aware prior
to our takeover that it would not be
the case (i.e., the dredging project
would not be completed).
Mr. Langshaw states that the city
is still doing the accounting for the
marina. The fact is that Westrec
has installed its own marina account-
ing and'reservation software (again
,at no expense to the city) and we are
performing virtually all of the
accounting functions for the marina
as well as the retail store. ,
:M1. Langshaw asserts that
Westrec is using the ex-charter
office on the property for Westrec
administration purposes; this is
incorrect. The offices are used
exclusively for the management of
the marina. They have been recent-
ly renovated and provide an excel-
'lent location for the marina manag-
er, dockmaster and operations. It is
much like a tower at the airport
where the dockmaster and manag-
er can monitor the coming and
going of vessels throughout the
marina and are easily accessible to
employees and customers alike. Mr.
Langshaw, the former marina man-
ager there, is suggesting that his
former office in the back of the
boaters' lounge in a storeroom with
no windows or view of the marina at
all is more appropriate. We disagree.
Overall, Mr. Langshaw declares
that "things are not looking so good
at the city marina." In our first year
since assuming the management of
the facility, boat nights were up 38
percent and gallons of fuel sold are
up 12 percent over the previous year.
In a time when most businesses are
hurting, I believe this is indeed very
good, and a testament to the policies,
programs and procedures we have
put in place.
Since our assumption of man-
agement of the facility all marina
employees have received customer
service and other employee train-
ing. Our professional marina staff
are in uniform with nametags and
easily accessible to boaters, their
guests and the general public alike.
In this first year of operation we
included Fernandina harbor in the
advertising and marketing program
with our Florida regional proper-
ties. Westrec spent over $150,000
on this program, which includes
multiple print ads, boat, trade shows
and other marketing events, again at


no expense to the city. We lhbe
increased the routine mainteri e
performed by marina staff,
regular schedules for p .
cleaning-and barnacle scrapii'
I believe our accomplishment
the last year are due to the d ica.
tion of our professional marinA n
agement team who contintf
tect and preserve the interest h
city and its citizens. This, c'
with mutual respect and under-
standing, is key to an\ -iIccs-ful'
partnership.

WED\ESDAY. APRIl.27. 2011 NEWS Ncws-Leadcr


Final hours


beloved 20-year-old
cat, Masala, is dying
beside me, here on
the sofa on her favorite blan-
ket. She can no longer even
stand but I bring a bowl of
water to her, and she licks a
little bit, maybe just to please
me, who knows? She does not
seem to be suffering, and is
mostly asleep, but she does
raise her head a bit to take in
my petting, and I believe she
knows I am here, her trusted
'friend, with her to the last.
I am glad I got home from
my work in Albania in time to
share these precious sad
moments with her. Poor
Bucko has been on hospice
duty alone these past two
weeks, as Masala got weaker.
and weaker, and wobblier and
wobblier. He managed to get
her to eat baby food, fed by
hand, and that perked her up
a bit. And he organized her
litter box to make it easier for
her to access, and that
worked for awhile too. But
now, not even the smell of
shrimp, her favorite food, pen-
etrates her death-fogged
brain and her breath is shal-
low. There is no doubt bout
it, the end is near. I'm think-
ing minutes. z
In the time I have left, on
the sofa beside Masala, I want
to remember the life she's
shared with Bucko and me,
the good times, and there
were many. We found Masala
in Vallejo, Calif., in a rescue
center like Cats Angels when
she was less than a year old,


WILD
WAYS

Pat
Foster- Turley


way back in
1992 when
Bucko and I
were both
working at
Marine
World. A
timid little
calico, she
was, but
soon enough
she made
friends with
our ram-
bunctious
black lab,
Chester, and


before long she was the
queen of our household.
As a once-feral cat, before
she was rescued, she was
always eager to be outdoors,
catching California lizards,
snakes and mice to bring to
us with pride. Many cats do
this, I know, but Masala had
her own special slant on
things. Early on she discov-
ered that her still live prey
could not get out of the bath-
tub, thus prolonging her
"fun." Bucko and I would hear
telltale thumps coming from
the guest bathroom, and we'd
argue, "You get it this time,"
"No, it's your turn now." And
so it went, neither of us happy
about catching another snake
to put outdoors again.
Whenever we moved, over
the years, Masala moved with
us. Sometimes she had to stay
back in a friend's care, until
we drove from California to
Florida, and fiom Botswana to
Tanzania, and were able to
receive her again. She was


such a good little cat, every-
one said, that sometimes it
was hard to pry her loose
from her temporary owners.
Masala was small and gen-
tle except when she needed
veterinary care. Then she was
so upset she'd throw up
immediately when we put her
in her carry box, and more
often than not the vet techs
had to give her gas to anes-
thetize her if they needed to
draw blood, or the situation
would have been reversed.
Masala was also the' most
"diplomatic" cat we've ever
heard of. She never wanted to
show favoritism to either one
of us. At night, she would
spend half the time with
Bucko, on his side of the bed,
and half the time with me.
Around- the house she was
most often either halfway
between both of us when we
were both in the same room,
or she divided her attentions
in each room with one of us,
equally halftime. Whenever
either of us was gone, she
would keep on the alert for
the sound of the garage door
opening to greet her family
member at the door. At least
until she turned deaf a year
ago, then we took the initia-
tive, and gently petted her on
her bed to wake her up when
we arrived home to greet her
instead.
And you couldn't ask for a
more thigmotactic cat than
Masala, who always likes to
be held, and brushed and pet-
' ted. At night. Masala woke me
up with "the claw" as we
called it, a gentle nudge to
wake me up so I would role
over on my side to embrace
her with a cuddle.
So now, in Masala's last
moments, there is no vet to
traumatize her, and she is
peaceful at home on her
favorite blanket with me by
her side, in physical contact
and, I hope, aware of my
touch to the very end. It's the
least I can do to thank her for
the wonderful life she has
given us, two decades of love.
Goodbye, Masala, you will be
missed: .

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

remain.
According to City Manager
Michael Czymbor, money from
the sale of the property will go
to the airport to be distributed
and used based on Federal
Aviation Administration regu-
lations.
Commissioner Jeffrey
Bunch said that if the city does
sell the property, the money
should go toward the airport's
debt of about $1.5 million.
The Compass Group also
tentatively agreed to a deed
restriction on the proposed
property that, according to City


Attorney Tammi Bach, "will
restrict industrial development
on the parcel abutting the
entrance to the airport. This
means that there will be buffer-
ing with landscaping and a
water feature up front near the
airport entrance. ... The city
will have to approve the deed
restriction, with Planning
Division having lots of input."
Bach said no site plans have
been submitted to the city so
far, and that she could not dis-
cuss who would eventually
develop the property, if pur-
chased from the city.


City adjusts marina store lease


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Because of lagging.gross
retail sales at Westrec's dock-,
house store, city commission-
ers last week approved 4-1
amending its monthly lease of
$2,500.
Commissioner. Jeffrey
Bunch voted against.
The amended lease now
states that Westrec, the city's'
private marine manager, will
pay the city 25 percent of retail
sales "for the initial term of the
lease and any extensions or
renewal terms."
Westrec had been paying
the city 25 percent. or $2,500 a
month, whichever was greater.
It took over operations at the'
Fernandina Harbor Marina in
January 2010.
According to City Financial
Director Patti Clifford, Westrec
has brought in about $10,000 in,
retail sales so far this year.
The company had asked
last month for its rent to be cut
because it is losing money,
which Westrec officials blame
on the city's failure to dredge
the harbor. Due to extreme sil-
tation, the marina has been los-
ing both boat slips and rev-
enues since the last dredging in
2009.
Westrec regional manager
Gary Groenewold said at a
meeting last month that the
company was not able to meet
its budget, noting it had expect-
ed the city to dredge t h e mari-
na soon after Westrec look
over, but the date was moved
back several times.
The number of available


slips is rapidly dwindling, he
said, resulting in fewer tran-
sient boaters and decreased
retail sales. A recent city study
fofind that of 72 inner docking
slips, only nine' had a water
depth of over 4 1/2 feet.
"I don't have a problem with
(amending the lease)," said
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter at the
meeting April 19. "I don't
believe we should ask some-
ope to take money out of their
pocket when they're putting all
the money up and stocking (the
store) and everything else. Last
year we received about $18,000
from them... they could hit that
minimum $2,500 but it's not
unreasonable for the city to
amend (the contract) so I'm
going to support it."
"I think granting some level
of relief because of the dredg-
ing is appropriate," said resi-
dent Dave Lott, "but I think to
:give a complete exemption to
all the (lease) extensions
swings too far the other way."
Lott said he served on the
marina advisory group before
Westrec was hired and helped '
evaluate the proposals.
"In their proposal, Westrec
had projected that the city's
share of revenues from the
sales was going to be $42,000-
$50,000 a year," Lott said. -"As
you can see, that number has
fallen way, way short. I thought
at the time that the projections
were unrealistic."
He suggestedd .he city pro-
vide the ':'xemptioh'foi the ori -
inal lei rn of the contract, then
reevaluate after dredging. With
the dredging complete, he said,
"the reason for the slow sales


should have gone away."
dity Manager Michael
Czymbor said previously that
the marina lost $195,000 ifi the
last fiscal year and is projected
to lose $100,000 this year in
spite of the rehabilitation of
three concrete docks'and over-
all increases in the sale of gas,
diesel and slip rentals.. .
Commissioners recently


gave approval for the city to
apply for two Florida Inland
Navigation District grants to
help finance dredging in 2011-
12.
The 'city will apply for
$185,000 in dredging funds
from FIND and provide
$250,000 of its own.funds to
dredge about 12,000 cubic
yards..

Car stolen atjail
A car was stolen from the
parking lot of the Nassau

p.m. to visit a family member.
After the visit, she discovered

ed her in the parking lot of
Jasmine Plaza she allegedly
smelled of alcohol and her
speech was slurred.

ligerent, began to curse the offi-
cer and other people in the area

Wildfires bur;


risk 'very high'


There have been numer-
ous wildfires in Nassau County
in the past week, including an
18-acre blaze on CR 121 at
Brandy Branch Bridge.
Wildfire danger remains very
high and likely will persist into
summer because of drought
conditions, according to the
state Division of Forestry.
In the Jacksonville area
there were 11 active wildfires
during the past week burning
30.1 acres. In Nassau County
those include the Brandy Cook
Fire, CR 121 at the Brandy
Branch Bridge; 18 acres; the
Amelia Riverwalk fire, from
Willow Oak Lane to Grand
Oaks Lane, 0.3 acre; the Jimmy
Conner fire, between Jimmy
Conner Place and Harper
Ridge Lane off CR 121, 0.3
acre; the Fifty Bucks Fire, CR
119 and David Hunt Road, 0.1
acre; the Long Walk Fire, CR
121 at the Brandy Branch
Bridge, 0.2 acre; and the
Pilgrims Way Fire, Keene
Cemetery Road to Pilgrim's
Way, 1 acre.
The drought index, or
KBDI, was 436 in Nassau
County on Monday. The nor-
mal level for spring in North
Florida is between 261 and 460.
The Keetch-Byram
Drought Index is a continuous
reference scale for estimating
the dryness of the soil and duff
layers. The index increases for
each day without rain (the


amount of increase depends
on the daily high temperature)
and decreases when it rains. .
The scale ranges from 0 (no
moisture deficit) to 800
(desert-like conditions). iThe
range of the index is-deter-
mined by assuming that there
is 8 inches of moisture in a sat-
urated soil that is readily avail-
able to the vegetation
Each day that passes with-
out measurable widespread
rainfall increases the wildfire
danger in North Florida.
Weather predictions for the ,
rest of the spring and into sum-
mer are for dry conditions and
continuing drought, lightning
will continue to challenge fire-
fighters as parched ground
with heavy undergrowth is
ignited from lightning strikes
with minimal rainfall. Wildfires
are also starting from ignition .
sources such as ATV exhaust
systems and the use of equip-
ment due to the dry condi-
tions.
Firefighters are also
responding to many wildfires
caused by escaped debris
burns. Residents are urged not
to do any outdoor burning until
significant rainfall is received.
The fire danger will remain -:
high through June into July
until the wet season returns
and the pattern of afternoon
thunderstorms provides much
needed rainfall, the forestry
division stated.

SBASFBALL



Hornets, Pirates



play in semifinal


The Yulee Hornets (17-8)
defeated Oakleaf 8-4 Monday
afternoon in the first round of
the District 3-3A tournament
at Bolles.
They advanced to
Tuesday's semifinal round
and faced the Fernandina
Beach Pirates for a shot at the
district title in Thursday's
championship at 7 p.m:.
With two outs, the bases
loaded and the score 9-6,
Andrew Minor hit a walk-off
grand slam about 400 feet to
right field Thursday to cap off
senior night and his regular
season career as a Yulee
Hornet.
Down 7-0 in the third
inning, Yulee never gave up
and kept chipping away at
Hilliard to have a chance in
the seventh inning.
Freshman Ryan Yoder,
-who came on in relief, picked
up the win for the team for his
first varsity win of his career.
"All week we had so many
missed opportunities and
chances to win against both
Fernandina Beach and West
Nassau, but just did not take
advantage of those opportuni-
ties,".said Will Minor, head
baseball coach at Yulee High
School. "For the third game
in a row we had the winning
runs on base in the seventh
and finally capitalized on an
opportunity for the big win'
for, not only senior night, but
also.the program."
This win gave Yulee High
School baseball its 75th victo-
ry in the first five years of the
program's history.
"I am so proud of this team
because of all the adversity
and off-the-field issues that
players have had to go
through and still, as a team,
we found a way to'pull togeth-
er and win 17 games during
the regular season," Coach
Minor said. 'That says a lot
about the coaches we have
here and about the players.
"Our program has gone
through some changes for
the better in the past year and
we look to only improving on
the foundation that we have
built here. With the young,
talented, athletic players we
have coming back next year,
we feel very blessed as a
coaching staff and look for-
ward to being able to coach
these young guys up for a
bright future of Yulee High


RECREATION

City offers sui

football league<
The city of Fernandina
Beach Parks & Recreation
Department is offering adult
leagues this summer.
Register May 2-24 at the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation
Center for a summer men's
softball league. USSSA rules
apply with an eight-game reg-
ular season and tournament.
Games are played Monday
nights at the Ybor Alvarez
softball fields on Bailey Road.
Team fee is $315 and due
May 24. Season begins June
7. There will also be a sum-
mer women's league. Regi-
ster May 2-24 at the Atlantic
R. ci ..:ii..n Center. Fee is is
also $315 and due May 24.


School baseball.
"Our seniors Andrew
Minor, Nolen.Carlyle and
Sean Williams will be missed
and we are proud of the lega-
cy that they will leave in all
they have accomplished and
meant to the success here in
their four years with the
team."
Andrew Minor transferred
to Yulee High School his
freshman year to play for his
big brother,.Coach Minor.
"In five years, this baseball
program has accomplished.
more than I could have ever
hoped for when I took the job
of building this program in
2006," Coach Minor said. "I
have rebuilt two high school
programs before Yulee, but it
is nothing like the work and
time that has gone into build-
ing a program (field, equip-
ment, uniforms, booster club,
traditions, etc.) from scratch.
"I look around and realize
how many players' lives we
have touched and how much
we have accomplished as a
program in five short years. I
had a vision five years ago
what I wanted in terms of
field, facilities, etc. and we are
right where I want this pro-
gram to be after five years.
"Of course, we are always
looking to improve, but we
are doing it the right way, and
we are 'doing it the way that
wilJ last and bring success for
many years to come. We
know that great things are
not built overnight, so our
patience is beginning to pay
off with hopefully block
dugouts being built soon after
the electricity gets completed
(which the school board is in
the process of completing
now).
'Things are starting to fall
into place and it is just excit-
ing to see ,hv coinmrunity and
our sponsors showing even
more of an interest in this
program over the past six
months or so. I am more pas-
sionate and excited than ever
about continuing to build this
program to be the best it can
possibly be not just in
Nassau County, but in the
state of Florida.
'There will be many ups
and downs throughout the
process, but great things are
going to continue to happen
for Yulee High School base-
ball in the next 5-10 years."

OUTDOORS / TIDES









OUTDOORS


WEDNESDAY. APRIL 27.2011/NEWs-LEADER-


Plugging the flats


Legendary bass fisher-
man and fishing show
personality Bill Dance
recently traveled to
what many fishermen call the
end of the road, Venice, La. It
may be the end of the road,
but what many seasoned fish-
ermen claim it's the begin-
ning of some of the country's
best backcountry fishing.
Early Easter Sunday morn-
ing I turned on Dance's fish-
ing show and watched him
redfishing with Capt. Mike
Frenette, an old-time fishing
friend of mine. It was a slick,
calm day as they cast large
topwater plugs to a huge
school of bull reds holding on
a massive shallow flat.
Both fishermen were
working Bomber "Badornk-A-
Donk" topwater plugs,-har-
boring noisy sound chambers
that claimed 'to wake tip even
stubborn redfish. While in
slow motion 20- to 30-pound
"bull" reds were caught on
film lifting their massive
heads from the water and
crashing down on the irritat-
ing topwater imitators.'
"When is the best time of
year to come and fish for
these giant redfish with top-
water plugs?" Dance asked.
"Typically f the spring,
summer or fall and really any-
titne when the.water is clear,"
Frenette replied
Frenette's advice really hit
home as many local tol5water
plug enthusiasts will verify
that, when the water clarity is
best on the flooded flats, both'
redfish and sea trout will sim-
ply blast a chugger or cigar-
shaped topwater plug.
Some of the best times of
the year to target both redfish
and sea trout with surface


lures is dur-
ing the
spring, when
the water
temperature
has warmed
up to the low
70s and right
through the
fall fishing
OUTDOORS season.
... However,
TerryLacoss tides and
water clarity
become huge factors when
working topwater plugs in
many of Northeast Florida's
trout and redfish waters. By
far the best tide is a high
incoming tide that arrives just
after sunrise. Clear water con-
ditions allow both redfish and
sea trout to easily locate your
surface plug. The high falling
tide also offers excellent top-
water opportunities as bait-.
fish begin to fall out of flood-
ed spartina marshes onto
nearby shallowmud flats.
There is also another key
factor when targeting topwa-
ter trout and reds and that is
the availability of baitfish.
Look for schooling men-
haden, mullet and glass min-
nows and you will be sure to
find trout and redfish nearby.
I can safely say, with the lack
of baitfish, you would be
much better off cranking up
your big motor and exploring
new waters.
Once you have located
both numerous schools of
bait fish and clean water, look
for ambush points where bait-
fish are migrating past a
marsh point, the mouth of a
feeder creek, through a deep
slough or past the deep side
of an oysterbar. Cast your sur-
face lure up tide of the


ambush point, working it
slowly past the ambush point
and hang on.
Sea trout will frequently
come up from under your sur-
face lure during the strike
while redfish will often poke
their head out of the water
and come crashing down on
your surface plug. In both
cases, patience in setting the
hooks of your surface plug is
critical. Many skilled topwa-
ter fishermen will actually
wait until they feel the pres-
sure of the hooked fish on
their rod tip before setting the
hooks. Setting the hooks to
soon will.frequently result in
pulling the plug away from
the foraging red or trout.
Fishing tackle is also key
when both casting and work-
ing surface plugs. I personally
prefer a seven-foot spinning
rod outfitted with a 4,500 size
spinning reel loaded with 20-
pound braided fishing line.
The braid is tied directly to
surface plug using a
"Palomar" knot. The braided
fishing line will help avoid cut
offs from nearby oysterbars.
Spinning tackle will allow.
you to make longer casts on
windy days. However, on
calm days, casting tackle is
much more accurate when
working ambush points. My
suggestion is to bring along
both casting and spin tackle.
Some of the more produc-
tive surface plugs include the
Storm "Chug Bug," Heddon
"Zara Spook," Bomber "Ba-
donk-A-Donk," Rapala "Skitter
Walk" and the traditional
Smithwick "Devil's Horse."
Best color patterns include,
gold, white and chartreuse.
Work your surface plugs
slow and with a lot of noise.

ber tournament at Long Point

Fifty-six women competed
in the rain-shortened, two-day

flights of 18 holers and one
flight of nine holers.
The fun format pitted each
two-person team against the
other teams in their flights in
best-ball, nine-hole matches.
After completing three match-
es, the winners of each flight
met in a four-hole elimination
playoff in a Scotch format
until the champions were
determined in an exciting
final hole.
On the par-our fourth hole
of Long Point, the remaining
twosomes- (the ultimate
winners Cherie Billings and
Lyn Rion and the runners-up
Phyllis Watson and Mary

drives, leaving both two-
somes about 150 yards from
the green.

shot for her team, leaving
them just about 15 feet from
the hole.
The Watson-Brannen team
missed the green and had to
chip on. They failed to sink
their putt; Rion-Billings two-
putted for their par and the
win.
First flight winners were

L* ee Westwood' replaced
\ X. ,Germany's Martin Kaymer as
Y^ world number one after Luke
3-: 6Donald failed to' win The
Heritage on Sunday. Although' Westwood
sealed a'three-stroke victory at the Indonesian
Masters earlier in the day, Daldhad the
chance to take over at the top because the
Heritage carries more ranking points than the
Asian Tour event.. "It was going to be some big
rewards if I won today,"', Donald told reporters.
Westwood, who, was world number one for 17
weeks after deposing ,.Tiger Woods in
November, .will instead: end' Kaymer's brief
eight-week reign at the top. The German did
not play this week.


One of the many'problems that can cause the amateur golfer's iron and wood shots
i to go offline is something not thought about often. Having too hard or too soft of a grip
could be a key to not hitting your shots on the correct line. If your grip is too light, when
you make the backswing, your wrists may go into a cupped position. This will result in
an open dubface from the top of your backswing all the way through impact. The
simple solution is to slightly strengthen your grip to let the clubface be more square at
impact. If you tend to hook the ball, that means that your dubface is dosed at impact and could be
dosed at the top of your backswing. As a result, you will need to relax your grip a little bit, allowing
the dub to make a smooth transition from the backswing through impact.,,

Artist with local roots behind Shrimp Festival logo


Christmas in May. Island
Mardi Gras. Shrimp Festival is
upon us. Our quiet little
Mayberry By The Sea
explodes with activity as
crowds gather for the leg-
endary annual Isle of Eight
Flags Shrimp Festival sched-
uled the first weekend in May
each year. Some locals flee,
others worry that the island
might sink
or tip, but
every year
we survive
and it gets
bigger and
better
thanks to
Sandy Price,
unofficial
FROM queen of the
THE Shrimp
PORCH Festival, her
army of vol-
unteers and
Dickie festival spon-
Anderson sors.
Each year
the festival adopts a design
that adorns the popular "offi-
cial" T-shirt. Some folks make
their owit unauthorized
design, but the one to seek is
the one that benefits the annu-
al festival and is available at
Publix, the festival's sponsor,
and at the event. The festival
is a nonprofit organization,


with all rev-
enue going

port current ;
and future .
festivals. It is
the one time
of the year
that many Johnston
island organi-
zations raise
money for their nonprofits.
So how did this year's
design get chosen? I found
Lana Johnston, the artist who
created this year's T-shirt art-
work, in Atlanta, where she is
assistant marketing director
for,a large insurance company.
Johnston is a wonderful -
Fernandina Beach story.
Johnston's parents, Tommy
Adkins and Kelli Smith, grew
up on the island and graduat-
ed from Fernandina Beach
High School. Their three
girls, including Lana and her
twin sister, all graduated from,
the island high school.
- Johnston and her sisters
were very active in the Bean
School,of Dance and loved
walking-in the festival parade.
She has fond memories of
working at the FBHS volley-
ball-basketball booth selling
lemonade and funnel cakes.

Johnston followed her life-
time passion of illustration and
went to the University of
Georgia where she studied
* graphic design and market-

* often recognized for her talent
including a principal's award
in the first grade for a drawing


of her shoes. She has worked
in New York City and is now
living in Atlanta. In 2010 she
won a prestigious design
award selected from over
4,000 other entries and was
featured in the American In.
House Design Awards issue.
She has never missed a
Shrimp Festival and kept
thinking she would enter a
design but just didn't do it.
* The love of a grandmother,


Jackie Kaemmer, and her urg-
ing resulted in Johnston's
design being chosen as the
official design of the 2011 Isle
of Eight Flags Shrimp
Festival.
"It was really important to
me to keep those elements of
Shrimp Festival that I love: the
sunshine, the bright colors
and vibrant atmosphere, and
incorporate them into a cohe-
sive design of my own,"
shared Johnston.
So get out your best-flip-
flops, buy this year's festival T-
shirt and join in the fun at this


year's Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival. It's a boat

Hi, I'm Snowball. Besides
being very handsome with
my beautiful white hair and
gorgeous eyes, I am sweet
and a little shy. I get over my
shyness when I get to know
my family and my home. I
enjoy being brushed it
makes me drool!
I prefer to be in a home
without other animals, but I
do get along with other cats. 1
need loving, caring people to
adopt me and help me get
adjusted to my new home. I
will be a wonderful pet and a
loving friend.

Jazzy is an affectionate,
good-natured Shetland
Sheepdog/Sheltie mix. She's
housetrained and good with
kids; her owner had to give
her up because of family cir-
cumstances that had nothing
to do with Jazzy. She enjoys
running and playing in the
yard and going for walks. But
most of all she enjoys lots of
love and affection from you,
including tummy rubs! She
has a nice, soft coat and is an
excellent size for a house dog.
She also is energetic and
would be lots of fun to run and
play with. Please come see
this great gal!
Tilly is one of our staff's
favorites a very special cat
for a very special cat lover.
She's full of love and affection,
and really wants to be in a lov-
ing home. She's about 5 years
old and has a bit of a head tilt,

and loves to be petted. She
also has a clouded eye, but
does have vision in the eye.
