Smoke billows from a wildfire Friday behind the Courtney Isles apartments. The 20-acre blaze adjacent
to the Yulee Tradeplex was controlled in about two hours.


'Danger' leads



to burn ban


RYAN SMITH
News Leader .
A burn ban was enacted Monday by
the Nassau County Commission. All
outdoor burning is prohibited until
the ban is lifted.
Nassau County Interim Fire Chief
Matt Graves said dry weather makes
wildfires a serious danger.
"Our current drought index as of
last night was 574, and 700 is bone
dry. That's desert dry," he said. As for
Nassau County's drought index, "It's
not extreme, but it's certainly dan-
gerous."
Graves said the ban would be
reconsidered once a week, but would.
probably stay in place for a while.
"We're going to monitor the weath-
er conditions, and every seven days I
will make a recommendation to the
county manager," he said. "For the


foreseeable future, I wouldn't expect
any change. We're not expecting any
substantial rain."
Awildfire burned about 20 acres in
the area between Gene Lasserre
Boulevard and Pages Dairy Road in
Yulee Friday.
Graves said the fire department
responded to the blaze at about 11:4
a.m. Friday.
"We had what started out as a rel-
atively contained or small fire that was
probably started by a passing train,
and due to the extremely dry weather
conditions, it rapidly expanded into
approximately a 20-acre wildfire," he
said. "... The best guess is that one of
the (train's) brakes locked up and it
was actually dragging a wheel, which
is not that unusual so it's just drag-
ging metal-on-metal, creating sparks."

County OKs plan



for 23,000 acres


RYAN SMITH
News Leader
The Nassau County Commission
approved Monday a plan to develop
23,000 acres in East Nassau County.
The plan defines land use, and the
land owned by TerraPointe,
Rayonier's real-estate arm would
be developed over the course of the
next five decades.
The approval came during a
packed public hearing, during which
most speakers seemed to support
the plan.
The East Nassau Community
Planning Area, stretching from
Chester Road west to just beyond
US 17 and north of AlA to the St.
Marys River, would include shops,
businesses, conservation areas and
homes for up to 56,000 people,
according to the plan. It is planned as
a "walkable" community, with mixed-
use developments that would put
homes, schools and businesses with-
in easy commuting distance of each
other.
The planning area, which was cre-
ated jointly by TerraPointe and the
Nassau County Growth Management
Department, is a cornerstone in the
county's comprehensive plan,
approved last year after a series of
public meetings of the Planning and
Zoning Board and the county com-
mission.
SInitially, the Florida Department
of Community Affairs objected to
some aspects of the plan, saying the


It includes homes for
56,000 people.

county needed to limit development
between 1-95 and US 17, do more to
protect conservation areas and
demonstrate a need for additional
housing. However, all those objec-
tions were either addri_'-ed by the
county or dropped, according to
county Growth Management
Director Walter Fufidio.
Fufidio also said developing a
master plan for a large area made
more sense than planning piecemeal.
It derives in part from a master plan
concept promoted by Rayonier and
former County Commissioner Vicki
Samusyears ago to develop the area.
"The urban development area
basically runs from Chester Road all
the way out to 17 and beyond,"
Fufidio said. "We chose this area not
at random we chose it because it's
outside the coastal high-hazard zone.
... It has, relatively speaking, good
north-south transportation routes
and it can accommodate an east-west
corridor."
That corridor would link Chester
Road to US 17 and would allow for
construction of thousands of new
homes in what is now largely
Rayonier-owned pine tree forest
intended for harvest.

Wanted



driver



found



in Keys

i. ,RYAN SMITH.
News Leader
The Fernandina Beach man who
was allegedly driving a car that killed
a state road crew worker last month
has been apprehended in the Florida
Keys. He was not home and his where-
abouts Were unknown when police
went to arrest him May 19.
James Stephen Buzzard, 59, 2809
Ocean Drive, was arrested last Friday
morning in Plantation Key on a charge
of DUI manslaughter. His bond is set at
$500,002; according to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
The second-degree felony is pun-
ishable by up to a $10,000 fine and/or
15 years' imprison-
ment, according to z
Assistant State,
Attorney Wesley
White, head of the
Nassau County State
Attorney's Office.
Although Buz-
zard was clearly
impaired, according Buzzard
to a city police officer
at the accident scene,
he was not arrested April 26 after his
car struck 59-year-old road crew work-
er Harold Martens on South Fletcher
Avenue. Martens died from his injuries
two days later.
A toxicology report determined
Buzzard's blood alcohol content was
0.35 the night of the accident, accord-
ing, to Florida Highway Patrol
spokesman Lt. Bill Leeper. Driving
under the influence is defined as 0.08
or higher.
"We could have picked him up that
night, but now we have clear-cut toxi-
cology reports," White said Monday.
"The moment he's picked up, (his
right to a) speedy trial begins to run.
We want to make sure all the charges
are appropriate, and we want to do all
the investigation in the background,"
White said. "Once someone's been
charged, witnesses have the tendency
to disappear or forget things. While an
investigation is ongoing, good people
tend to reach out to us and give us
'information."
White also scoffed at the notion that
Buzzard could have evaded arrest -
despite the fact that he was found about
450 miles from Fernandina Beach.
"(Florida Highway Patrol) Corporal
Sonny Riles did an extraordinary job
tracking him down, and the moment he
got back the results he had him picked
up," White said. "... There was never

Protect pets from


rising temperatures


like humans, pets are sus-
ceptible to overheating. Older
dogs, flat-faced dogs, over-
weight dogs and puppies have
the highest risk of heat stroke
or heat stress, but owners
should make sure that all pets
have plenty of cool water and
a source of continuous shade
when outdoors as tempera-
tures rise across Nassau
County.
Owners should limit dogs
being out during the middle of
the day and avoid taking them
to the beach and/or to areas
that are paved, which can
result in burns or injuries to a
dog's feet. Dogs should be
exercised only during early
morning and late evening
hours when the sun is less
intense. Days with high
humidity magnify the prob-
lems and put dogs at higher
risk.
Pets should never be left
alone in the car on a warm
day, regardless of whether or
not the windows are open.
Even on mild days, a car left in
the shade can reach danger-
ous temperatures. In less than
10 minutes, the temperature
in a car parked in the shade
can increase as much as 40
degrees above the outside
temperature. In direct sunlight


those temperatures can
increase 60 to 80 degrees
higher than the outside tem-
perature.
The normal body temper-
ature range of a dog is 101 to
102 degrees. If that tempera-
ture rises to 106 degrees,
there is real danger of brain
damage and vital organ fail-
ure.
Anyone spotting a pet that.
is in immediate distress and
unresponsive should contact
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office for emergency dis-
patch. All other reports should
be made to Nassau County
Animal Services (491-7440),
in the county, or to
Fernandina Beach Animal
Control in the city of
Fernandina (321-1647).
Signs of fatigue due to the
heat may include a bright red
tongue; thick, sticky saliva;
rapid panting and weakness;
dizziness; vomiting; diarrhea
and shock. If a pet becomes
overheated, it is important to
calm the animal and give it
cool, not cold, wpter to drink.
If it cannot drink, roll the ani-
mal onto its back and place
icepacks or a cool Wet towel
on its abdomen to lower body
temperature and seek imme-
diate veterinary attention.

A reference to a May reor-
ganization meeting as a renew-
al date in Bach's own contract,
and specific dates for commis-

Mary Mercer's contract were
deleted. Evaluations of the city

Fufildio stressed that
approval of the plan would not
mean immediateconstruction
in the area. Each new devel-
opment would need to go
through the traditional review
process before being
approved, he said.
"We're simply putting into
place the plan that we adopted
back in October... We have a
lot of stops to go with East
Nassau."
Former county attorney
Mike Mullen, attorney for
T'erraPointe, claimed that
some objections to the plan
were based on misinformation.
"The East Nassau Planning
Area is the future of Nassau
County," he said. "This entire
plan was created in a partner-
ship with you and the com-
munity as a whole. ... People
throw facts out or purported
facts and then there are what
I call the real facts.
"The misstated fact is that
the taxpayer will pay for the
cost of roads and other infra-
structure," he said. "Not true.
Neither TerraPointe nor any-
one has ever suggested that
the taxpayer will pay for infra-'
structure."

vote of the city commission and
30 days'written advance notice.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor's contract was not
amended. He noted during the
meeting that his employment
contract is automatically
renewed annually, without the
need for annual evaluations by
commissioners.
According to Human
Resources Director Robin
Marley, the city attorney and
city manager can take advan-
tage of the International


Instead, Mullen said, the
cost of infrastructure in new
developments would be borne
by the developers, or new res-
idents in specially created tax-
ing districts.
Jim Sellen, planner for the
new community, said it was a
blueprint for future communi-
ties in a time when rising fuel
prices curtailed long com-
mutes.
"It isn't too hard to imag-
ine gas at $6. It isn't even hard
to imagine gas at $8, and that's
going to change a lot of
things," he said. "We need
communities that are walka-
ble, communities where jobs
and housing are close togeth-
er, and that was the challenge
we were given,
"This is not development.
... This is where you start the
process of planning, and it
becomes the basis of how you
evaluate development propos-
als in the future."
Some audience members
had reservations, however.
Eric Titcomb of Fernandina
Beach said that although he
was impressed with the plan's
conservation strategies, they

This means
-4 the city must
pay a mini-
Czymbor mum of 10 per-
-____ cent of Bach's
salary and 12
percent of Czymbor's salary
into the ICMA.
Bach's base annual salary
is $120,804 and Czymbor's is
$108,647. Both have received
cost of living raises since com-
mencing employment with the
city. Czymbor's original con-
tract was written in March 2006
and Bach's in September 2007.
The ICMA plan also allows
participants to keep their retire-
ment account after they leave
employment, according to
Marley.

are a lot of good notions in this
plan. It's just that it seems like
a lot of this is on the honor sys-
tem."
Most speakers, however,
voiced support for the plan.
"I was told to fear Amelia
Island Plantation, Summer
Beach," said Joel Embry.of
Fernandina Beach, developer
of Amelia Park in Fernandina
Beach. "... When I look back at
the things the county has
approved and shepherded over
the years, I have no reason to
be afraid if this works as well
as those things did. They were
not perfect, but we're not here
to select the perfect. We're
here to do the best we can."
"This is different than any-
thing the county has ever had
presented. It's broader, it's
more specific it's a good plan.
Let's not do the thing where
we let the perfect be the
enemy of the good."
"We think this plan repre-
sents a method to control
growth in a manner that will
create jobs," said Dave Cobb,
president of the Greater
Nassau County Chamber of
Commerce. "... It also repre-
sents a way to create a new
and good tax base."

into a pension fund.
Participants in the fund can
keep their contributions after
leaving employment if they
have worked for the city for six
years. Mercer had already
worked for the city for more
than six years before her con-
tract was written, Marley said,
so it was to her advantage to
continue contributions to the
city pension fund. Mercer's
base salary is $66,979.
The city manager's contract
states that if his contract is ter-
minated, he will receive six
months' severance pay. The
city attorney and city clerk will
receive four months'severance
pay if their contracts are ter-
minated. Severance pay is not
awarded in the case of termi-
nation for a felony or gross mis-
conduct.

Tom Ford, chairman of the
Planning and Zoning Board,
also defended the plan.
"We had the 18 hearings or
19 hearings on this particular
issue, and I'd like to thank
TerraPointe... for allowing this
county to have this kind of
opportunity.
"This is a major thing, and
this is a 50-year plan," he
added. "The majority of us are
not going to see this to
fruition."
All five commissioners
expressed enthusiastic support
for the plan.
"I believe this is the future
of Nassau County.... I applaud
TerraPointe and Rayonier for
stepping forward," said
Commissioner Barry
Holloway. "There were a lot of
naysayers about Amelia Island
Plantation when it came here...
and see what we have today."
"I think what we're doing
here is exactly what the citi-
zens have asked for. ...
Everybody asked for smart
roads and mixed-use develop-
ments," said Commissioner
Stacy Johnson. "I'm pleased to
be part of something that I can
present to my children and
grandchildren as a legacy."

In fact, "Mr. Buzzard was

Buzzard, a local bartender,
told police had been playing golf

Buzzard was reported drink-

Buzzard is currently await-

Lead cook in food and
nutrition services, Marie
Autry began cooking for
patients in 1961, long before
microwaves and food proces-
sors became staples in the
kitchen. She is known not just
for her culinary skills, but for
her ready smile, caring man-
ner, attention to detail and
adaptability Autry meticu-
lously prepares patient meals
for nine special menus a day
and her delicious fried chick-
en has made the hospital cafe-
teria popular lunch destina-
tion.

Like Carter and Autry,
Walker comes from a long
line of Fernandina residents.
Her family includes grandpar-
ents and children in the area,
one grandbaby and another
on the way.
"These women are excep-

is today and we are extremely
proud to have them on our

Budget cuts


test schools


Like a teacher giving a pop
quiz, area school officials are
intermittently testing the pub-
lic's reaction and resolve to
potential budget cuts.
If school officials want to
pass the test, they should omit
teachers and student activities
from budget-cut equations. But
that is exactly where a critical
quotient of the cuts are being
made.
In Nassau County, school
officials are proposing to elim-"
inate some 40 teaching posi-
tions. Few cutbacks are report-
edly being felt in the school
administration building, which
is known to locals as "the big
house."
In Duval County, school
board members initially floated
a trial balloon to eliminate all
athletics in public schools -
potentially impacting some-
thing like 15,000 students. The
balloon promptly crashed to
the earth of reality.
So Duval officials have re-
formatted their budget reduc-
tions. They only plan to elimi-
nate certain sports such as
cross-country, wrestling, ten-
nis and golf. These generate
fewer ticket sales so are appar-
ently expendable.
Just as individual schools
can be given failing grades, so
should school board members.
Voters might consider this:
Duval County is reportedly the
only district in the state to be
considering this level of ath-
letic cutbacks.
Let's not forget the focus is
-to provide a well-rounded edu-
cation to students. This
demands a dynamic classroom
setting, with skilled teachers
and necessary resources. It
also requires extracurricular
activities such as athletics,
clubs and student groups like
band.
One new board member is
openly asking the public as well
as school employees for sug-
gested budget cuts. You have to
wonder if the financial short-
comingstook him by surprise
(and what platform he ran on).
A $90 million shortfall faced by
Duval officials did not occur
over night it's apparently been
brewing for nearly as long as
the Budweiser plant on Dunn
Avenue.
Making students endure
the pain of austerity is infan-
tile. Adults are clearly acting
like children in this instance.

This should include school
officials at all levels. If you think'
about it, one administrator
earns as much as two or three
teachers. Instead, Duval board
chairman W C. Gentry is quot-
ed as saying budget cuts will
either be "on the backs of
teachers," or else "on the backs
of students."
In Clay County, school offi-
cials also face a challenging
budget. They will preserve
their athletic programs, how-
ever. One official there com-
mented that athletics are an
-"integral part of scholastics"
"Sportsareleadership labs,"
says Fleming Island Principal
Sam Ward. "Kids learn lessons
playing sports that areliard to'
learn anywhere else. By doing
away with athletics, we're cut-
ting down on our ability to raise
leaders for the future."
A high school student wrote
to a local paper, pleading the
case for athletics. The young-
ster quoted statistics showing
that student-athletes are more
involved and are less likely to
drop out of school. .
In fact, high-performing stu-
dents will often pursue extra-
curricular activities, and are
judged by this involvement
when applying to college. For
others, the reason to stay in
school is a sport or activity they
love.
Amanda Young, a new
school board member in
Nassau County, also feels that.
way about athletics. "I think it's
a huge motivational tool," she
says. Likewise, it should be a
motivation for school officials.

HEATHER A. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
D)ub) Mullis and his uncle Terry Mullis offer a variety of farm fresh produce at the
Amelia City corner of AlA and Gerbing Road.


Fresh produce for 30 years


I IMIAI IERA. PERRY
News Leader
Terrv Mullis is worried
about losing his livelihood. For
the past 30 years, Mullis has
operated the produce stand at
the corner of First Coast
Highway (A1A) and Gerbing
Road.
"Our mother used to have
a house right there," he said,
pointing to an area adjacentto
the Harris Teeter shopping
center.
"When I first started this, I
operated out of a van across
the street. I had it camouflaged
with palm fronds and people
used to stop and stare at it. It
was so ugly, it was pretty!"
Mullis called his creation
"The Tomato Wagon."
These days, the median for
I lthe new roundabout prevents
easy access to the produce
stand that sits in a clearing
beside the Flash Foods. .
"We're only doing about, a
quarter of the business we
used to dto."
Mullis gets 80 percent of
his farm fresh produce from


Lake City but he also drives
to Columbia, S.C.,for peaches.
"There's'a lot of history
here," he says of the corner
his produce stand occupies.
"We're even listed in some of
the histories of the island."
Mullis muses about favorite
patrons, including a lady who
made him a soft, embroidered
pillow when she learned he
was resting his head on a
rolled up jacket on his
overnight trips to South
Carolina for peaches.
Then there's the lady who
buys a case of mangoes each
year to make mango chutney
and the couple who come by
daily during their annual vaca-
tion.
"It's more like a family
friendly market," he says.
Several family members
have helped out over the
years, including daughter
Miranda.
"Shewas,jiusta ,little, thing,
when sher started helping me
out. The customers loved it.
Everybody knows Miranda,"
said Mullis. "Now she has
three children."


Brother Dub Mullis and
nephew Dub Mullis also help
out.
"Most of our employees
have been family or friends of
family and we take pride in our
work. We were voted
best boiled peanuts on the
island."
The younger Dub says the
most difficult part of the job is
unloading watermelons and
dealing with the weather, but
he enjoys the customers.
"I meet people from all over
the world who are vacation-
ing, visiting the island or have
moved here," he said.
Leisure activities for the
younger Mullis include writ-
ing music, singing and play-
ing guitar.
Terry's Produce is at the
corner of South Fletcher
Avenue and First Coast

V MAY I HELP YOU?


He shines at the Loop


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
"It's not a fun job, but he
does it without complaining.
He's very hard working," said
the customer who nominated
The Loop Pizza Grill's hard-
working busboy, Ovid Ezekiel
Van Sickle.
General Manager Elijah
Barber agrees with this
assessment.
"He is an outstanding
employee who completes his
job to the best of his abilities."
Barber says Van Sickle
stands out as a dining room
attendant because of his drive
toward overall customer serv-
ice and satisfaction.
"I do my best to make sure
that the customers have a
pleasant dining experience
and are taken care of," said
Van Sickle.
Maintaining the dining
room, the dish pit, the ice
machine, the patio, the flow-
ers and floors makes for a


busy day.
"I take it personally and I
get upset if it's not clean.
When it gets full in here, it's
not easy. It's non-stop once we
get busy and I don't stop until
I get it done."
He enjoys talking with the
customers when he's clearing
tables.
"I have never had to talk
and interact with people like
this before, but I really like
our customers. There are
some good people here in
Fernandina Beach."
Leisure activities for the
pleasant single father include
fishing, bicycling, lifting
weights and spending time


with family and friends. Van
Sickle treasures the infre-
quent visits with his two-year-
old son, Brendan.
His,philosophy of life is,
"Be yourself, work hard and
treat people with respect."
First opened in
Jacksonville more than 2,5
years ago, the Loop Pizza
Grill in Fernandina opened in
2000. There are now 20 Loops
in three states.
Loop Pizza Grill is
located at 869 Sadler Road.

VIEWPOINT/TIM DIGBY/OMNI AMELIA ISLAND PLANTATION



What's in a name? Amelia Island Plantation


Omni Hotels and Resorts
at Amelia Island Plantation
would like to clarify that the
name of the residential com-
munity and 1,350-acre tract of
land remains Amelia Island
Plantation.
There has been no
"Community name change"
as written in a letter to the
editor on May 6. The change
is that Omni Hotels & Resorts
is the new owner and opera-
tor of the resort hotel and
resort amenities.
There are now three sepa-
rate and major entities within
the 1 ,350 acres known as


Amelia
Island
Plantation.
'0 The res-
idential comn-
munity of
Amelia
5,1 Island
Digby Plantation
________ consisting of
approximate-
ly 2,000 property owners.
The private equity club
Amelia Island Club with
approximately 1,400 mem-
bers.
The hospitality resort
company Omni Hotels and


Resorts at Amelia Island
Plantation.
The original signage on .
Amelia Island Parkway and
14th Street was requested
and paid for several years ago
by three commercial entities:
The Ritz Carlton, Amelia
Island, Summer Beach and
the Amelia Island Co. as
Amelia Island Plantation.
These signs were approved
by the county for the purpose
of directing traffic to the com-
mercial businesses. At this
time, the identification of the
residential community and
the commercial entity coincid-


ed as Amelia Island
Plantation.
Omni Amelia Island
Plantation takes great pride in
being part of the Amelia
Island Plantation community
as a whole, including
property owners and Club
members. We look forward
to working with everyone in
properly identifying (see box)
the distinct but cohesive com-
munity entities involved in
today's Amelia Island
Plantation.
Tim Digby is Managing
Director ofOmni Amelia

VIEWPOINT/DAVID FASHINGBAUER/FERNANDINA BEACH i



Short-term beach rentals cancer' or cure?


As the owner of a home on
South Fletcher Avenue, I sim-
ply must comment on the
Viewpoint article by Debbie
Arnold and George Strain,
("Face of Fernandina is now
threatened," May 18).
Ms. Arnold and Mr. Strain
predict that if we allow beach
homes to be rented for less
than 28 days, Fernandina
Beach "will become like other
barrier islands along both
coasts of South Florida,
Tampa and the Panhandle."
The authors threaten that
repealing the short-term
rental ban is only the start,
"leading the way to high-den-
sity high-rise condos replac-
ing the friendlier footprints of
single-family beach homes."
They describe short-term
rentals as a cancer to current
residential neighborhoods.
Are we really expected to
believe that if we allow beach
homes to be rented for less
than 28 days, Fernandina
Beach is soon going to look
like Miami Beach, Key
Biscayne or Key West? Cancer
in our neighborhoods? Are
they writing about rental .
homes or strip clubs and
crack houses?
SSo why are the natives get-
ting so restless? Because the


Florida Legislature recently
passed a bill that prohibits
local governments from pass-
ing discriminatory zoning
ordinances that apply restric-
tions to some properties, but
not all properties within the
same zoning district. This is
exactly what the Fernandina
Beach Commission did in
2000 when it passed an ordi-
nance that restricted some
beach homes in R-1 and R-2
zones from being rented less
than 28 days, but not others.
The ban was the result of
complaints about allegedly
irresponsible landlords who
rented to noisy, unruly
tourists.
In order to minimize oppo-
sition to the ban and pass it,
the commission compromised
and agreed to "grandfather in"
existing rental homes. Thus,
the commission actually
allowed the allegedly irre-
sponsible landlords to contin-
ue renting and stripped the
right from everyone else.
They exonerated the guilty
and punished the innocent.
This new legislation opens the
door for.the city commission
to repealethc short-terim rental
ban and restore homeowners'
property rights.
Like many beach homes,


my South Fletcher home was
not designed to be used as a
full-time residence.
The home is surrounded
by vacant land and a maritime
forest and although there is a
short-term rental across the
street, I am prohibited from
renting it short term. The
home has proven to be nearly
impossible to sell because it
cannot be rented for less than
28 days and since I cannot file
for a homestead exemption,
the annual property tax is
$7,200.
. Florida residents benefit
from the Save Our Homes
amendment that limits proper-
ty tax increases to a maximum
of 3 percent per year. This
coupled with a $50,000 home-
stead deduction has left some
residents paying very little for
the public services they enjoy.
Our local government relies
heavily on tourists, businesses
and investors to pay the lion's
share of tax that support the
police, fire department,
schools, parks, road mainte-
nance and a host of other wor-
thy government services.
What is troubling is that the
residents who pay the least
seem to be the most adamant
about eliminating the
investors, businesses and


tourists that support them.
For proof of this one needs to
look no further than the
authors of the article refer-
enced above.
According to the Nassau
property appraiser, the value
of Deborah Arnold's home on
First Avenue and George
Strain's home on South
Fletcher would more than
triple if they were rentals.
The poster child of the
undertaxed, anti-growth, long-
term homestead crowd is for-
mer City Commissioner Ron
Sapp. In 2000, then commis-
sioner Sapp was on the board
that voted in favor of banning
short-term rentals for selected
properties on South Fletcher
Avenue.
In 1994 Mr.-Sapp pur-
chased his historic home in
Fernandina Beach from his
mother for $60,000. Today, it
is valued at $350,000, a
remarkably shrewd invest-
ment. The taxable value
of Mr. Sapp's home is only
$38,149, meaning Mr. Sapp's
property tax is $60 per
month. If Mr. Sapp lost his
homestead exemption, his
property tax would skyrocket
from $720 a year to over
$6,600 a year.
The combined value of Ms.


Arnold's home, Mr. Strain's
home and Mr. Sapp's homes
Sis over $1.4 million. These
three homes have a total of 12
bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.
The combined square footage
is 7,826 feet. These three
homeowners pay a combined
annual property tax of $6,374.
Hard to believe, but I pay
more property tax on my 2-
bedroom, 2-bathroom rental
home and it is only 1,364
square feet If they were pay-
ing the same rate as I am,
their property tax would be
over $26,000. If I were them, I
would be thankful for us over-
taxed landlords. Talk about
biting the hand that feeds
them wow!
Perhaps at the upcoming
Planning Advisory Board
meeting we should pass out
copies of Aesop's Fable,
Killing the Goose That Laid
the Golden Eggs.
We are fortunate that we
have escaped state income tax
and local sales tax. However,
once the full impact of the
recession and the drop in real
estate values is assimilated
'our local atid'stategovern-
ments will be forced to make..
deeper spending cuts and
increase the millage rate.
Unfortunately, a millage rate


increase will only place a
greater burden on those of us
who are already overtaxed.
For example, raising the mill-
age rate 10 percent will raise
Ron Sapp's property tax $72 a
year, it will raise my tax over
$600 a year. I simply can't bear
thefinancial burden any
more.
I moved to Fernandina
Beach and opened a business
15 years ago. I have recently
opened a business in
Savannah, Ga. I have sold
three properties in Nassau
County and I am hoping to
sell a fourth soon. I love
Fernandina's historic district
and the beautiful beaches, but
historic Savannah and the
beaches on Tybee Island are
very nice and the taxes are
lower and the business cli-
mate is more favorable.
If our city commissioners
are truly interested in stimu-
lating the local economy and
keeping it competitive with
other, similar areas, they need
to encourage real estate
investment and tourism by
abolishing this arbitrary ban

Would voters approve bond issue?


Ten years ago the voters of Fernandina
Beach made a decision that would change our
town forever; we voted to approve a $6 million
bond issue that would help purchase over 300
acres of environmentally sensitive lands,
improve the two recreation centers and create
neighborhood, or "pocket," parks. Few people
thought it would pass, but it did, narrowly, the
only voter-approved bond issue in over 50
years.
The history of the Open Space bond issue
of 2001 is a winding one, beginning in 1995
when Ed Livingston suggested that the city
purchase the empty lot that is now Seaside
Park. Very expensive, I said the asking price
was $1.2 million. "Still," Ed Livingston persist-
ed, "it's something we need to do."
Vicki Cannon, now the best supervisor of
elections in the state, then city clerk, won-
dered if Florida Communities Trust might
help, after all, they had purchased the land
along Egans Creek just south of Atlantic
Avenue and had given it to the city the scrub
that was converted into a salt water marsh,
yes, that salt marsh; wouldn't hurt to ask.
The city commission thought both were
good ideas, the purchase of the property and
the possible partnership with Florida
Communities Trust, so the application for
funding was approved. Joan Cory, a local resi-
dent, suggested approving a second applica-
tion to FCT, for property along Egans Creek,
property, she said, that might be the begin-
ning of a greenway. The commission agreed to
submit the two applications to FCT-and both
were funded almost $900,000 for the Seaside
Park property and the Egans Creek property
completely.
Now the road takes a little turn, a turn
toward preservation and protection.
In 2000, the city commission approved a $1
million land acquisition fund for the purpose of
purchasing and preserving environmentally

sensitive lands.
Commissioner Bob Rogers, a
true fiscal conservative and a
natural opponent of "unneces-
sary government spending,"
could have fought the effort,
but he didn't, he came down
on the side of preservation,
and his work and rhetoric
made a difference. City staff,
under the leadership of Vicki
Cannon and Susan Laird,
begin putting together a list
of preferred properties for
commission approval the
concepts of preservation and
protection took a giant step


forward in 2000.
Later that year the city commission placed
the question of a $6 million Open Space gener-
al obligation bond issue on the April 2001 bal-
lot. The leadership of Mayor Kim Page is out-
standing and essential, as is the continued
support of commissioner Bob Rogers.
Then there was the community itself, peo-
ple like Ned Tyson and others from the origi-
nal Friends of Fernandina, tosupport the bond
issue, and other individuals agree to canvass
neighborhoods, go door-to-door and make
phone calls; whatever it took.
The bond issue passed, and along with the
$1 million land acquisition fund approved by
the commission in 2000, the city had $7 million
to purchase, protect and preserve lands for
ourselves and future generations.
So, thank you Ed Livingston, Vicki Cannon,
Susan Laird, Joan Cory, Kim Page, Bob
Rogers, Greg Roland, Ned Tyson and all of the
commissioners, community volunteers and
city staff that have made the Egans Creek
Greenway possible, along with the numerous
individual property purchases throughout the
city gifts to ourselves, sure, but best of all,


gifts to our children and all who come after us.
Fast forward to 2011 post-Great
Recession 2011, and we are wondering, won-
dering because we hear rumblings, rumblings
that the city commission is pondering ways to
finance their priority list: completing the water-
front, improvements to Eighth Street, a new
library building and improvements to the post
office building. A bond issue is a possibility,
we hear, $8 to $10 million, or more, we hear -
or a line of credit, or maybe revenue bonds -
all rumblings.
Everything has changed since 2000-1, the
economy has changed, people's expectations
have changed, people's expectations of gov-
ernment have changed, so any kind of bond
issue that requires citizen approval will be
tough. But at least for me, a line of credit
(loan) is out of the question increasing city
debt that much without voter approval would
be wrong see the county's diversionary
efforts regarding the $77. million it took to
build the new courthouse. Revenue bonds are
unrealistic nothing on the priority list gener-
ates revenue to retire the debt, unless the
commission wants to somehow manipulate
CRA revenues. So that leaves a general obliga-
tion bond issue.
Note to the city commission from an Open
Space bond issue veteran: be a true believer in
the projectss, be ready to work, be ready to
knock on doors, debate, discuss, advocate, be
ready to explain to a wary and weary citizenry
why the projects) are worth funding, worth a
tax increase and enlist as many people and
organizations as you can in the effort.
Bond issues can work, even in tough times,
because the people of Fernandina Beach have
an innate progressive nature, but they have to
believe that the issue is worthy, is good, is the
right thing, both short-and long-term. The
community effort of 2001-2 bears this out.
Ron Sapp is a former city commissioner


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Riskalife?
In response to the Nassau County
Commission meeting May 18- save a
book and risk a life? Basically that's
what Nassau County is doing! And oh
my goodness, if you live in Callahan or
Hilliard please don't have a heart
attack or serious accident on that side
of the county and particularly at the
same time!
Hey commissioners how about
close the libraries, protect public safe-
ty and open our school libraries up to
the public! Yes,.I know this has never
been done and it blurs lines between
Nassau County and Nassau County
School Board, but hey, these are
unique and extremely difficult times
and as Iheard you guys.,say at the
meeting we need to look outside of,
the box! Man up and make things hap-
pen that have never happened! We're
in those kind of times! And if you're
going to do anything with volunteers
- let the good people man your
libraries not your fire stations!
Putting lives particularly at risk makes
no sense while making books acces-
sible! Plus, like I said earlier, if you're
going to downsize something, public
safetywould be the absolute lastthing
that should be cut.
Also, I am not aware that any of we
citizens of Nassau County pay a "fire
tax," just property taxes, so I am at a
loss as to how you can justify severe-
ly cutting the ability to save a life on the
West Side while on the East Side
(where I live) we remain protected.
You also jeopardize the lives of our
firefighters by under-manning them
to begin with.
I would certainly rather pay a fire
tax (wonder what $10-15 per house-
hold could do) and be certain that if I
or a loved one have a heart attack my
chances of surviving are as best they
can be because professional and high-
ly qualified and highly motivated res-
cue personnel are on their way. By the
way, I know how critical that is my
son was bitten by a rattlesnake in 2005
and one of the reasons he is alive today
is because professional firefighter/
paramedics arrived at our home with-
in minutes to begin life-saving tech-
niques. The doctors at Shands were
truly shocked he even survived the
ride to Shands. Wonder what would
happen today with that scenario if what
you are proposing happened on the
West Side? It wouldn't have mattered
to my family then or now if you had to
tell me that my son didn't make it
because our response time isn't what
it should be because of budget cuts or
we just don't have enough money to
man the fire stations sufficiently.
Permanently or temporarily just
doesn't matter now, does it?
People of Nassau County better
wake up!

Resort rentals
Well things certainly are getting
more interesting! If you read the paper
("State ties city hands on resort
rentals," May 13), the state has
changed the regulations concerning
short-term rentals (resort rentals). If
the city adopts the proposed legislation
suggested by the city Planning
Department, then they cannot restrict
these units in any residential zone!
This even makes stronger our fight
to not change the Comprehensive
Plan.
Right now the Comp Plan propos-
al is to eliminate the language pro-
hibiting "hotels, motels, bed and break-
fast units, resort rentals, or other
forms of transient accommodations" in
residential categories. And substitute
"incompatible non-residential uses."


This may only eliminate gas stations,
stores, etc., in residential zones. This
is too vague and does not protect the
residential characteristics of neigh-
borhoods.
And if the commission agrees to
change this language, then hotels,
motels and resort rentals cannot be
restricted at all in any residential dis-
trict because of the new state legisla-
tion, it is a change after June 2011.
The argument that people need to
rent their homes in order to make
money in this poor economy is one
that is continually brought up to justi-
fy everything. For over 30 years, I per-
sonally know it has been used as a red
flag to wave to get something people
wanted. It is not the responsibility of
(h,-' -ivto,J3,ilout jpijvidual hoqfme-,
,owner's, buti-o ipromoti. a vital-coni-.;
munity in which to live, to work and to
play.
Changes in zoning change every-
thing. Think about when you put a
commercial store, business or gas sta-
tion on a corner the property next to
it is affected and usually goes com-
mercial, causing a tumbling effect in
rezoning and/or deterioration of prop-
erty values. When you put a commer-
cial activity next to a residence, it
changes the neighborhood. Short-
term rentals are commercial activities.
They do not belong in residential
areas.
Someone mentioned at a recent
commission meeting that the com-
mission should focus on the taxpayers
and businesses of the community, I
would like to suggest the residents
pay a heck of lot of tax in this city. We
also pay county and city taxes and
have not moved out of the city because
we like city services and the protec-
tions. One of the important protec-
tions is for our neighborhoods and
our residential way of life. We are the
ones who support the downtown mer-
chants and the city restaurants year
around. We support the festivals,
chamber music, etc. We are very
proud of our city, the industries here
and the various types of businesses -
it is what made Fernandina the pleas-

Maritime museum
I enjoyed the article in the May 18
News-Leader about the Amelia Island
Maritime Museum, which is associat-
ed with Amelia Research and
Recovery, LLC. Amelia Research is
one of the best-kept secrets on the
island a for-profit business that uses
historical records and cutting-edge
technology to locate and recover the
remains of Spanish Galleons from the
Spanish treasure fleets that sunk on
Florida's east coast while returning to
Spain. Not only is it interesting to
adults the company's use of history,
math, magnometer and scanning tech-
nology and critical analysis have been
key to Amelia Research's efforts, and
children can readily see how what they
are learning in school relates to the
exciting chase for sunken treasure
and the recovery of silver and gold
coins, jewels, and historical artifacts.
Many residents of Amelia Island
are owners of shares in Amelia
Research, and it's great to have a
museum that displays some of the arti-
facts from both the treasure hunting
company and other sources of mar-
itime history. I also enjoy visiting the


website for the company -
www.ameliaresearch.com to see
more of what Amelia Island's own lit-
tle treasure hunting group has been
doing. I remember that these treas-
ure hunters were featured in a story by
Good Morning America some time
ago, and with so few treasure hunting
companies in existence, it's really great
that one is right here.

The gang that couldn't
shoot straight2011
The Gang of Three is back.
.Commissioners (Susan) Steger, (Tim)
Poynter and (Eric) Childers are back
for repeat performance in 2011. Let's
review their latest masterpieces.
The Unelected Term Extension
. After the city passed a referendum to
change the Election Day from April
to the county Election Day in
November, the Gang, citing reduced
costs and more turnout, passed the
measure. Oops, there is no county
election in 20J1, no savings, no larger
turnout. Still, commissioners Steger
and Childers are about to be com-
mended for their thoughtful vote to
extend their own unelected terms and
receive seven more months' pay and
benefits from the city's taxpayers.
The Resolution That Isn't a
Resolution. In 2002 city commissioners
passed a resolution that stated an annu-
al evaluation shall take place and com-
missioners shall fill out an evaluation
form and/or request a meeting of the
full commission to discuss any issues
regarding charter employees. To date,
the Gang still hasn't done either for the
city manager, but it's not like it's actu-
ally a law. Besides, why would you
nee .,) evaluate a guy just because
he let the city airport manager allow a
tenant to go 18 months and owe
$60,000 before he found out? After
allowing the horse, cart, 8 lamas, 7
sheep and Mrs. O'Leary's cow to
escape the barn, the city manager
vowed to have a system in place that
wouldn't allow any future tenants to go


a day over 17 months before he
cracked down on them.
The Enhanced Lights Scam. The
Gang in a 3-2 vote had the city buy
$44,070 worth of lighting to enhance
the downtown. Unfortunately, the reg-
ular streetlights do not allow any
enhancement for over half the lights.
The rest show a fine array of tree
trunks. I can't wait to see the cost
when someone trips (the lights stick
up about 1.5 feet from the ground)
over the lights and wants to know who
put these lights in the middle of a walk-
ing area. But hey, you can understand
why the Gang spent the money when,
as.Commissioner Poynter points out,
we have to spend all the money in the
budget because if we have any left
over, the citizens will think we over-
taxed them.
What's next, a parking kiosk on
Crane Island?

Foster care
May is National Foster Care
Month, the perfect opportunity to pub-
licly thank all foster parents who open
their homes and their hearts to foster
children.
These caring and nurturing folks
are making a difference in the lives of
the children they care for. All children
deserve a safe, happy life, and foster
parents make that a reality for chil-
dren in child welfare whose own fam-
ilies are in crisis and unable to care for
them.
Family Support Services of North
Florida (FSS) recognizes that foster
parents enable youth in foster care to
build brighter futures by providing
them a stable home with love and
attention. Foster parents help our most
vulnerable children realize their full
potential. They are changing the lives
of foster children everyday.
Foster parents are special people
with a depth of caring, concern and
love of children that is to be admired
and applauded. Thank you for your
selflessness, your kindness and your
sense of public spirit.

JEFF PARKER/FLORIDA TODAY


While FSS commends every fos-
ter parent for all that you do, those
who care for foster teens, sibling
groups and handicapped youth are
particularly worthy of commendation
and praise. It is no small task to bring
these youngsters and their challenges
into your home and your life. We
appreciate your compassion and for-
titude.
National Foster Care Month is the
perfect time to join the ranks of foster
parents in our community helping chil-
dren in need. Won't you consider being
a foster parent?
FSS thanks foster parents every-
where for making a difference in the
lives of children in care. We are forever
grateful.

Gofflnsville Park
I want to thank the News-Leader
for the recent story on the wonderful
park the county created in Nassauville
("Recreational gem shines in
Nassauville," May 18). And I hope all
area citizens who have not visited this
family-oriented park, which was known
as the old oyster factory, will take the
time to discover it.
The park originally was the idea of
(now Clerk of Court) John Crawford
when he served on the board of coun-
ty commissioners. Later I had the
pleasure as then county commission-
er to meet with the owners of the prop-
erty and made an agreement to pur-
chase the property.
The owners very much wanted to
have a park there in memory of their
grandfather, and they arranged the
sale to the county at less cost than
perhaps night have been possible with
a private investor who had a great
interest in developing it.
It is now a gem that area
families should enjoy for generations
to come, and if you have not visited
there I hope you will both visit and
enjoy it.

Heart ofthe bowling alley


HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader

linda Perryman has lived in Yulee
her whole life.
"Since I was born here, I've had the
pleasure of knowing some of the finest
people who call Yulee home for many
years."
As manager at Nassau Bowling
Center, Perryman does a little bit of
everything.
"You name it, I do it: I cook, clean and
wait the bar."
"Linda is the heart of the bowling
alley," said youth and league coordinator
Kelley Grace. "I'd be nowhere without
her."
Perryman cooks up the country
lunches offered at the bowling center
from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. For only $8,
hungry folks can get a delicious entr6e,
two vegetables, bread and beverage.
"She's a great cook!" said Grace of
Perryman's culinary efforts.
When not busy at the bowling alley,
Perryman works with the Wildlife
Rescue Coalition in Jacksonville to raise
baby raccoons that have either been
abandoned by their mothers or lost their
home when trees were knocked down.


"I've raised about 30. 1 teach them
how to live in the wild on platforms in the
trees on my property. Once they know
how to feed themselves, they're
released."
One raccoon who will not be going
back to a wild life is Perryman's faithful
companion, Booger.
"She's awesome. She'll be five years
old in June and I've had her since she
was two.days old. She just never would
have anything to do with the wild. She
wanted me. She followed me everywhere
I went and she just bonded to me. I'm
Mama and she's a Mama's girl."
Booger has adapted well to life as a
house pet.


"She uses the toilet. She gets a bath. I
built her a 12 by 12 addition and that's
her little hideaway. She's as unique as
the day is long. She weighs 35 pounds
and she's extremely spoiled."
Doyle and Pat Claxton took the bowl-
ing center back over in January after it
had been under other ownership.
"They are awesome people and excel-
lent employers. They're pillars of the
community," said Perryman.
Nassau Bowling Center at 850822 US
17 South is open from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m.
weekdays, with extended hours on week-
ends. For information, call 225-1077 or

TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Transportation will join
local and national law enforcement offi-
cers and highway safety advocates
across the country for the 2011 nation-
al Click It or Ticket safety belt enforce-
ment mobilization, May 23-June 5.
During the mobilization, officers will
be cracking down on motorists who fail
to wear their safety belts both day and
night.
Because nighttime passenger vehicle
occupants are among those least likely
to buckle up and most likely to die in
crashes when unrestrained, nighttime
enforcement has become a priority,,of ,
the. Click It or Ticket mobilization. Of
those who died in nighttime crashes in
2009, nearly two-thirds (62 percent)
were not wearing safety belts at the time


of their fatal crashes.
In 2009, 11,593 passenger vehicle
occupants died in motor vehicle crash-
es nationwide between the nighttime
hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m., according
to the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration. During 2010 in Florida,
571 people died unbelted at night, com-
pared to 218 who died unbelted during
the day.
SHigh-visibility enforcement such as
the Click It or Ticket mobilization is
credited with increasing the Florida safe-
ty belt usage rate from 60 percent in
1994 to an observed usage rate of 87
,percent ip 2010.
, NHTSA estimates that safety belt
use saves Florida an estimated 124 lives,
1,733 serious injuries and $408 million
in costs annually.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Ryan
Smith of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
and the city of Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach
Police Department at 277-7342
or the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office anonymously by calling
225-0147 in Yulee and
Fernandina Beach or 879-2136
in Callahan, Hilliard and
Bryceville. The "We Tip" pro-
gram 1-800-78CRIME also
allows callers to leave anony-
mous tips.

Victim nabssuspect
A Yulee man was arrested
for theft Friday after allegedly
stealing tools from a garage,
running his van off the road
and being detained by his
alleged victim.
Adam Clifford Albury, 25,
85262 Duane Road, was arrest-
ed for unarmed burglary of an
unoccupied dwelling and grand
theft.
Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies were dispatched
Friday to the corner of Harves-
ter and Clyde Higginbotham
roads in Yulee. While en route,
they were flagged down by the
alleged victim, who told
deputies that several items
were stolen from his garage
and that he had the person who
did it sitting by his car.
When deputies talked with
Albury, who was indeed sitting
on the ground by the victim's
car, he allegedly admitted that
he had stolen the items, they
were in his van and he would
show them. In the van were a
lawnmower, a sander, a Skil
saw, a carpet cleaner, a cord-
less drill, a tool kit, a battery
charger, a battery booster, an
impact wrench kit, a bike pump,
two gas cans, a hand trimmer
and two weed eaters, accord-
ing to the police report. The
victim identified everything but
the lawnmower as his.
A witness told deputies she
saw Albury standing in the vic-
tim's garage and asked who he
was. She said Albury then ran
out and got into a van. When
she told the victim, he came
out and gave chase, and Albury
allegedly drove off the road into
a ditchi at the corner of William
Burgess Boulevard and
.Harvester Road. The victim
then detained Albury until the
deputies arrived.
Albury was arrested and
booked into the Nassau County
Jail. All the items in his van
were photographed for evi-
dence, and all but the lawn-
mower were returned to the
victim.

Fence crash
A Fernandina Beach man
was charged with leaving the
scene of an accident Friday
after he allegedly plowed
through a fence and into a gar-
den and then drove home tak-
ing part of the fence with him.
James Lynn Stubbs, 85108

a motor vehicle on the rim

Monarch caterpillars feed only on milkweed plants, above. Caterpillars eat and eat and
eat, then crawl to a supporting branch, take a J-shape, and make a chrysalis.
Chrysalises shelter the insect as it grows wings and changes its form entirely to
become a butterfly. Monarch butterflies released into your yard will look for milkweed
plants to start the cycle all over again.

'' his spring, after a
S cold winter, most of
S the plants in my
A backyard butterfly
garden had bit the dust. With
the warm days ahead, and an
empty area of my yard to fill
in, I hit the nurseries big time.
There are lots of beautiful
flowering plants that attract
adult butterflies, but what I
really wanted were host plants
to feed the caterpillars, pars-
ley for swallowtails, passion
flower vine for Gulf fritillaries
and zebra longwings and, of
course, milkweed for mon-
archs.
No problem with the first
two plants. Ali-eady my new
potted parsleys have attracted
swallowtail caterpillars. And
my new passionflower vine is
climbing up my trellis, and
when the Gulf fritillaries and
longwings show uO later in
the L n i i-i, Im sure there
will be some takers.
It was the milkweed plants
that stumped me. I visited
stores both on and off the
island but there were no milk-
weeds to be found. Turns out
that it was a bad year for milk-
weeds from the wholesaler,
and they had a difficult time
finding any to sell too.
Where I didn't go, in time,
was Ace Hardware on the
island: Sure wish I had gotten
there before my friend, artist
Sandra Baker-Hinton, did.
Turns out she found milk-
weeds there, and more. The
milkweeds came with their
own stock of tiny monarch
caterpillars just waiting to be
hosted.
Sandra is a naturalist extra-
ordinaire, always willing to
raising an orphaned squirrel,
or to rescue a cold stressed
anole, or parentless ducks.
This year, for her, was differ-
ent. This was the Year of the
Butterflies. With great care,
Sandra installed her milkweed
in a terrarium, to protect the
caterpillars from predators.
And as caterpillars do, they
ate and ate and ate. Before
long Sandra bought out all the
milkweed plants at Ace
Hardware to feed her hungry
brood.
Sandra shared her butter-
fly :iuir ui ing experience with
all of her many readers of her
nature email. (She will happily
add you to her list if you visit
her webpage at
www.ameliasanjongallery.com
and click the blue button that
says sign up.) The whole
process unfolded before our
many eyes. First the caterpil-


lars and then
the beautiful
jewel-like
chrysalises

enclosing
the plants
were fea-
SWILD turned. But
S WAYS the best was
By yet to come.
On
Pat Mother's
Foster- Turley Day morn-
ing my
phone rang. It was Sandra.
"Come quick, the butterflies
are emerging!" I rushed over
to her house but, alas, not in
time for the Butterfly Show.
By the time I arrived, six or
eight monar nch butterflies
were dripping fluid and dry-
ing their new wings, hanging
onto their abandoned
chrysalises, while they gath-
ered their strength for their
maiden flight out into the
world of air and flowers and
sunshine in Sandra's back-
yard.
I may not have been able
to find my own milkweed
plants this spring, but thanks
to Sandra's diligent logging
and excellent photos, I was
able to share in the wonder of
metamorphosis regardless.
And now, thanks to Sandra's
photos you can too. Enjoy.
And if you plant your own
parsley plants and passion-
flower vines still available at
nurseries in our area it's not
too late to get into the project
yourself. Just plant them, and
they will come. Sure you can
watch the caterpillars on your
plant in your yard, but lots of
predators are watching them
too and they are very likely to
disappear.
If you want the whole show
for yourself, guaranteed, just
follow Sandra's example, and
bring the caterpillars and
plenty of fresh leaves of the
host plant into a terrarium
inside your house. K6ep feed-
ing them the leaves of the
plant they prefer caterpillars
are specific, to a single species
of host plant and watch
them grow. Eventually you
too will have the chance to
witness this marvel of nature
and release your own native
"home-grown" butterflies in
your own backyard.

GAME ON! FOOTBALL


Former Flash


is drafted by


the Dolphins

Community Newspapers
Hilliard native Daniel Thomas will soon
don a new jersey if the 2011 NFL season
takes place. Thomas was the 62nd player
chosen in the NFL Draft earlier this month,
selected by the Miami Dolphins in the sec-
ond round.
The 6-foot-2, 228-pounder gained 2,850
career yards and led the Big 12 Conference
in rushing during his two seasons at Kansas
State University. Thomas was
in Hilliard last month spend-
ing time with family and
friends as he looked ahead to
the draft.
Thomas expressed a
desire to play for the New
England Patriots, but was
practical about his prospects.
"I don't really have a favorite Thomas
team," he said. "I'll pretty
much go with any team."
The media attention and travels to vari-
ous parts of the country for team visits and
interviews had left little time for Thomas to
consider all the implications of having a
.........career in the NFL.
"I haven't really been able to think about
it too much," he said. "I've been talking to
7" .my family. ... It's a dream I've had since first
grade. It's hard to imagine, coming from
Hilliard, that I've come this far. I'm happy
regardless."
Thomas said he brings an ability to
make plays on every down. "There's not a
lot of running backs that bring every down
play," he said.
He aspires to stay healthy and play pro-
fessional football for as long as possible. "(I
want to) stay in the league as long as I can,"
Thomas said.
Dubbed "Big Boy" during his high
school career at Hilliard Middle-Senior
High School, Thomas rushed for a total of
1,100 yards, scoring 11 touchdowns as sen-

academic eligibility to play at Kansas State.
Thomas expressed appreciation for the
support he receives along the way from
family, friends and those who coached him
toward his goal of playing in the NFL.
"Thank you for the support and every-
thing," he said. "And for everybody looking
out for me in Mississippi, Kansas and
AL Hilliard."
Like all rookies and veterans too -
he is waiting to see if the season will be a
victim of a labor dispute between owners
and players. NFL team owners have locked
out the players from team facilities and have
threatened to cancel the season unless play-
.T ers give in to owner demands in contract
talks for a new player union contract.

stunned the competition over the weekend,

___________________________the latest surf contest on the island.
Tiny Fern andina Beach has surprisingly
produced many successful world-class
surfers and, over the weekend, Kerlin
showed the potential to be the next on that
list.
Sutton's result was the highlight of the
~event.
This contest was the second of the year
in the Eastern Surfing Association's First
Coast District.
The waves for the contest were high ly-
contestable small but glassy with excel-
lent form, allowing for some quality surfing.
The larger-than-usual crowd of parents and
spectators was more vocal than ever, cheer-
9 ing good waves and rides.
Sutton had a few things helping him on


Sunday. His smaller size made it a bit easier
for him in the smaller surf to do what the
judges were looking for. Also some of the
top men decided not to compete.
Regardless, Sutton surfed extremely well,
legitimately earning his second-place finish
among the five finalists.
Chris Igou, last season's open division
champ, took first place.
Gage Kropff had his best day ever as a
competitor. Kropff, 11, won his age division
on both longboards and shortboards. Skyler
DeBerry, 14, did the same.
Also, 47-year-old Mike Nichols dominat-

Snapper



rule reefs


Administration extended the ban on
commercial and recreational fishing
for red snapper Dec. 3 in federal
waters off North Carolina, South Carolina,
Georgia and the Atlantic coast of Florida in
order to protect the red snapper population.
Now, it seems many area deep sea fisher-
men are claiming other
species of reef fish need pro- -
tection from the overabun-
dance of red snapper.
"Just before the red snap-
per closure, I was very disap-
pointed if we did not catch a
limit of red snapper," said
Capt Chris Holland, skipper
of the Misti Lynn charter
OUTDOORS boat "In fact, on many fish-
ing trips we would catch our
limit of 12 red snapper and
TerryLacoss then release up to 20 red
snapper while fishing for other species of bot-
tom fish including grouper and sea bass.
"Stocks of red snapper are simply so
healthy right now off Northeast Florida that
they are simply ruling the reefs and live bot-
toms. Huge schools of red snapper are over-
crowding areas of the ocean where many
other species of game fish are now having a
hard time competing for forage foods and sim-
ply a home to live."
Another factor directly related to the red
snapper closure and increased numbers of red
snapper is the increased number of sharks at
offshore live bottoms and reefs. Obviously
sharks are attracted by the huge schools of
red snapper, which offer an easy meal, while
at the same time targeting other species
including grouper, cobia, amberjack, sea bass,
triggerfish, king mackerel and more.
Most seasoned deep sea fishermen will
agree healthy stocks of reef fish include a vari-
ety of species sharing the same structure and
forage foods. An overabundance of red snap-
per has attracted fish-eating sharks, which
leads to an unbalance of sea life.
"One particular shark instance came while
reef fishing for grouper," Holland said. "We
had just released a 15-pound red snapper only
to see a 12-foot hammerhead shark attack and
eat the weak snapper right at boat side."
Other deep sea fishermen have also report-
ed increased numbers of pelagic sharks at
local offshore fish havens, including great
white and nasty bull sharks.


PHOTOS BY TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Scott Nichols, top left, and Capt. Chris Holland show off a pair of South Atlantic red snapper. The adult red snapper were caught
and released offshore of Amelia Island, where many knowledgeable fishermen are claiming the overabundance of red snapper is
decreasing stocks of gamefish and baitfish. Multiple-passenger deep sea boats are booking up to huge schools of red snapper and
many charter fishing captains are claiming red snapper fishing is now better than ever, right Red snapper must be caught and
released, left, until the National Ocean Atmospheric Administration lifts the ban on both recreational and commercial harvesting of
red snapper.


While many knowledgeable fishermen con-
tinue to question why there is a closed season
for red snapper, coastal areas continue to suf-
fer economically, particularly where fresh
snapper was sold at seafood markets and
served in local restaurants.
Marine-related businesses have suffered
tremendously along with charter fishing boats
that normally target red snapper during the
winter fishing season and all year for that mat-
ter.
Dave Workman operates Strike Zone, a
fishing outfitter in Jacksonville that carries
everything from reels and fishing tackle to
kayaks. He says customers have already


stopped buying fishing tackle and he expects
business to get much worse as the red snap-
per ban continues.
Like others in the industry, Workman
thinks the government has greatly underesti-
mated the ban's economic impact. He esti-
mates that the losses to his two stores as a
result of the ban will be more than $300,000
per year.
Holland is currently working with the
Florida Wildlife Commission in a brand-new
tagging program for red snapper that has been
funded by a $150,000 grant. Many fishermen
still challenge the data used to determine
depleted stocks of red snapper used by the


South Atlantic Fishery Service.
Red snapper can live up to 50 years old and
grow up to 50 pounds, while typically spawn-
ing March. through August.
Red snapper do not migrate, typically
spending most of their lifespan in a relatively
small area of the ocean, which brings up a
huge question for many seasoned red snapper
fishermen: Why has the entire South Atlantic
red snapper fishery been shut down while
there are definitely several areas like
Northeast Florida that continue to harbor
healthy stocks for red snapper?

them. All nine teed off togeth-

head pro, officiating.
The front nine brought the
: elimination of Peggy on hole
SNo. 2 (water) and Olson on
No. 5 (keeping her smile
Throughoutt. Reigning queen
SBadenoch cashed in with a
* birdie on No. 5 (with all of the
club members grumbling).
Riegler was eliminated on
No. 6 due to a very long, very
straight drive that ended up
out of bounds. Larabee found
a tree on No. 7 by the green,
had a great left-handed shot
but was eliminated.
The remaining five played
on through No. 8. Lansdell
was eliminated on the par-
three No. 9. The remaining
four played on through holes
10, 11 and 12 with no elimina-
tions. On No. 13, the sand got
the best of Burke (with
Badenoch collecting more
cash with another birdie and
more grumbling from two
club members). On No. 14,
2010 queen Badenoch was
eliminated.
The 15th hole was fraught
with a few questionable shots,
a consideration of concession
and rules officials conferring,
but it came down to Murphy
defeating McGrath.

"Until the formation of the

Summer Beach were exclud-
ed from joining the Amelia


Island Club," said Mike Ryan,
general manager of the
Amelia Island Club. 'The club

ber of memberships available

wishes to enjoy the outstand-

the Beach Club and the
Dunes Club swimming pool.
"In my short tenure here, I
have discovered how active
the social life is for our mem-
bers. We have golf, tennis,
dining, bridge, and mah jong
groups, to name a few, and
many other members simply
enjoy going to club-sponsored
parties and social events.
"All members value the 20
percent discount that Omni
gives them when utilizing
their shops and restaurants as
well as the daily children's
programs.that Omni offers

Ilan Poulter denied Luke Donald
Sthe top spot in the world golf
f'-- rankings, beating his fellow
SEnglishman 2 and 1 in the final
of the World Match Play Championship on
Sunday in Casares, Spain. The second-
ranked Donald could have risen to No. 1 for
the first time, supplanting compatriot Lee
Westwood, if he'd won the tournament.
Poulter was 1 down on three occasions during
the match, but a 45-foot putt won the 12th
hole and birdies on the 14tt4 and 16th sealed
Donald's fate. "I would not have minded losing
if I played well. It will leave a sour taste i the
mouth, but I.1 will move on next week. I just ran
out of steam," Donald said.


SOne of the common issues the amateur golfer has that causes a loss of power in the
I golf swing isa reverse pivot. A reverse pivot occurs when the weight of the golfer moves
to their front foot during the backswing, which causes the spine to tilt in the wrong direo-
tion. In trying to keep your head still, you prevent a good shoulder turn from happening
aswell as the properweightshift to the backfoot. In orderto correct a reverse pivotprob-
lem, here are a couple of suggestions. The most important key is to makepure that your
hips stay still on your backswing. You have to imagine that you are in a drum and your hips do not
touch either side of the drum on the backswing. The second piece of advice is to get your stemum
directly over your back foot at the top of the backswing to ensure the proper weight distribution.
