ANGELA DAUGHTRY
Ne.ws-Leader
City and county officials agreed
Monday at a Joint Local Planning
Agency meeting to negotiate terms
for poI-ibl'.. ti.qiii,,in of the Wade
Vuturo Building on Centre Street for
a new city library.
The negotiations will be confiden-
tial in order to assure the city and
county a good bargaining position.
County Attorney David Hallman
suggested that two appraisals of the
property be done before an offer is
made. The city and county are to split
the cost of the appraisals. According to
City Manager Michael Czymbor, the
cost for each appraisal should not
exceed $5,000.
Hallman said Florida statutes out-


library
line a legal process to keep such nego-
tiations confidential and exempt for
public records. He said an asking price
had already been discussed with a rep-
resentative of the Centre Street prop-
erty.
City Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch
and County Commissioner Danny
Leeper, who were tasked last year to
find a new library location, had previ-
ously recommended the 13,000-
square-foot, two-story building at 402
Centre St. as a possible site for a new
city library. The current structure on
North Fourth Street has been deemed
inadequate for the city library's needs.
According to the Nassau County
Property Appraiser's website, the
building is owned by Centre Street

County libraries


may cut hours


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Library hours may be cut, but no
libraries closed, and fewer county
employees than originally feared,
including :ii -tfiLgli t-, may be laid off,
Nassau County commissioners were
told during a special budget ineeting-
Monday.
County Manager Ted Selby said
new t nilat h'v niu beil received from
the property appraiser painted a slight-
ly brighter picture than before of the
county's projected revenue in the com-
ing year.
"We came to you the.last time with
- I. ri. I'i'l.,i numbers we received
from the Property Appraiser's Office
indicating that we were looking at
about $5 million in cuts," Selby told
commissioners. "We're now looking
at approximately $3.5 million." .
A projected decrease in tax rev-
enue has fueled talk over the last few
months of deep cuts to county servic-
es, including proposals to close library


branches, lay off up to nine firefighters
and as many as nine other county
employees and reduce staffing on
county fire engines. While the new
projected numbers will still require
cuts, Selby said, the county could avoid
some of the more drastic measures
previously discussed.
. LiUbrary branches could be able to
reimiin open albeit with a possible
reduction in hours of operation -
nonunion layoffs could go from nine to
eight and more firefighters could
remain on the job, Selby said.
"We gave you an option at (a May
15 budget meeting), if you'll recall,
that included taking Engine 40 and
Engine 50 and reducing that to three
persons rather than four," he said.
'That was going to be a temporary sit-
uation this year in order to alleviate the
overtime situation."
The current plan, Selby said, would'
, be to keep ladder trucks fully staffed
unless the personnel were needed

Celeste Kavanaugh


'cast gigantic shadow'


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
When it came time in June 2002 to
formally open the renovated Nassau
County Courthouse in downtown
Fernandina Beach, it was obvious to
others, if not to her, who should be
given the honor of cutting the ribbon.
Celeste Kavanaugh had enthusias-
tically worked to save the historic
courthouse. Allh,-ughl reluctant to
accept the honor, she performed her
symbolic duty with pride. Later, she
said 'she did so in memory of her
grandfather, one of the first judges to
preside in Nassau County.
"I had no idea they were going to
(ask me to cut the ribbon),"
Kavanaugh said then. "It was a great
surprise. It was a very emotional day.
It has been a long journey, and I'm
just glad I lived to see it."
Celeste Kavanaugh was no stranger
to Fernandina history. Descended


from a pioneering
Florida family, she
lived it, recorded it
S..-. and worked to pre-
serve it all of her life,
which ended Friday
at her historic home
on North Sixth
Street at the age of
Kavanaugh 89.
Growing up in
Fernandina, Celeste
Hardee Kavanaugh knew her family's
history was associated with local
lawyers, judges and the downtown
courthouse. Her great-great-uncle,
James M. Baker, was the circuit judge
for the area. Her grandfather, Hinton
James Baker, was the county judge
for three years. He wrote the original
deed to the courthouse by hand. And
she had a number of relatives who
had practiced law there.

and happily married for 67
years.
Early in World War II,
Henry joined the Chemical
Warfare Service and moved to
Edgewood Arsenal in
Maryland. After the war, he
joined Container Corporation
of America in Chicago. In 1953
he relocated his wife and three
children to Fernandina Beach,
Florida and took on a lead role
in Container's pulp and paper
plant, ultimately rising to
become the plant's technical
director. He was a devoted
father, an avid gardener, and a
middling golfer. He was active
in the ,First Presbyterian
Church.
In 1972, Henry and Marty
returned to Charlotte, where
he joined his brother James
Allison in the management of
Allison-Erwin Company, a
wholesale distributor with
branches across the Southeast.
Henry and Marty enjoyed their
home, where he lovingly tend-
-ed his vegetable garden and
grew figs and blueberries. He
turned his scientific mind to
baking -bread and English
muffins and experimenting with
wine making. He was active in
Rotary Club and Covenant
Presbyterian Church. During
these years'he traveled the
world with his devoted wife.

to be among the first Americans
to journey to the newly opened
China. They loved taking

their passion for learning and
adventure. They often visited
their children and grandchil-
Adren, and hosted them on vaca-
.tions to the mountains, the
' beach, and a Colorado dude
ranch. His was greatly loved by

: respected his generosity, self-
deprecating sense of humor,
and strong encouragement and
support for their educations.
In 2003, he and Marty
moved to Sharon Towers, a
Presbyterian retirement com-
munity where he had served
as a board member. They con-
tinued to travel to visit family
and friends, and he proudly
grew tomatoes in a small gar-
: den plot. In Marty's later years,
he stayed at her side constant-
ly, completely devoting his life
to her care. Her passing in 2007
was the saddest day of his life.
In recent years, he relinquished
some of his fierce independ-
ence and accepted from others
a measure of the love and care
he had showered on family and
friends throughout his life. He
is survived by his three chil-
dren and eight grandchildren.

Continued from 1A
Glad LLC, and was last sold in
2003 for $1.735 million.
"We are in favor of an
expanded and enhanced
library in the city," said Mayor
Susan Steger on behalf of city
commissioners at Monday's
meeting. "We will be in sup-
port of the project, but we
don't want to talk dollars at
this point in time.... we may be
giving a false impression as to
what we think the value of the
building is."
Leeper said he would like
to bring a price to the owner of
the building but first wanted
board approval to do so.
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter
said the acquisition was "two-
pronged" in that the building
would need renovations before
library operations move in. So
far, there have been no studies
on how much renovations
would cost.

KAVANAUGH
Continued from lA
"I have watched that court-
house. It has meant so much to
me because of my family's
name," Kavanaugh told the
News-Leader in 2002. But it was-
n't until age 15 that she fully
appreciated her relatives' role.
That's when a civics teacher
took her class to the downtown
courthouse to see the trial of a
woman charged with
manslaughter. Kavanaugh
remembered the case involved
a woman who was driving with
her children in the car. The
children distracted her, and
she hit another car,; Kavanaugh
said. "She got off. She was not
found guilty," she said. 'That's
a very vivid memory."
"We have all benefited from
her devotion," said Ron Kurtz,
former director of the Amelia
Island Museum of History,
which she supported so hearti-
ly "Look up Centre Street. That
the courthouse still stands is a
testament to her vision and
determination."
"Celeste was part of a group
'of inspired residents who
began the long battle to pre-
serve Fernandina's story,"
Kurtz said, citing Suzanne

the Nassau County Library
staff had brought up the need
for a new library in Fernandina
Beach. According to studies,
the city library is the most
heavily used branch in the
county.
Kelley said that, consider-
ing the economic climate, he
wasn't sure this is the proper
time to be buying and reno-
vating a library when the coun-
ty government is laying off
employees.
"It's like we're saying books
are more important than fire-
fighters," Kelley said. He also
asked how much the city
would lose in annual property
taxes if the building becomes
public property. Czymbor said
annual taxes for that building
are about $32,000.-

"She would never shy away
from a confrontation, but
always accomplished her goal
with style and dignity," he said.
"Gracious is a word that
informed her every action. In
addition to a keen sense of pur-
pose, she was, at heart, a fair
and ethical person... Small in
stature, she cast a gigantic
shadow."
Among her other preser-
vation activities, Kavanaugh
authored David Yulee: A Man
and His Vision.
She was a patron of local
politicians, too, a- founding
member of the so-called
"Kitchen Coalition" of ladies
who helped to shape and sup-
port numerous political careers
in local politics.
Kavanaugh was repeatedly
honored by the Amelia Island
Museum of History, whose
members mourned her death
this week. She was one of six
people honored in 2005 by the
Nassau County branch of the
NAACP at its annual Freedom
Fund Awards banquet.

We need to go to the next step

According to a document
from Nassau County Library
Director Dawn Bostwick, the

square feet, was constructed in
1977 and serves 40,000 resi-

COUNTY
Continued from IA
elsewhere.
Selby is still recommending
a reduction of four firefighter
positions or concessions from
the union to match those posi-
tions' combined price tag of
$347,251 but under the new
numbers the county could also
fill six vacancies in the fire
department, which had been
considered out of the question
before.
"So we're talking about
going from (nine) positions that
we were talking about cutting to
only cutting four positions -
and filling those six vacancies?"
Commissioner Stacy Johnson
asked.
"Yes, ma'am," Selby said.
"Obviously, nobody's going
to be happy in this economic
climate, but I don't think it's as
doom-and-gloom as everybody
expected," Johnson said.
"We do not have final num-
bers, as you know," Selby
warned. "... Everything we talk
about is subject to change.
Hopefully, it could get better.
Obviously, it could get worse."
Selby did recommend other
cuts to emergency services in
the county. "What we're pro-
posing you do is eliminate fund-
ing to (the Callahan and
Hilliard) volunteer stations," he
said.
He also recommended mov-
ing Callahan's professional sta-
tion from its current location
at 1960 Kings Road, which is
owned by the city of Callahan,
to county property on
Musselwhite Road.
"That would also give us
$21,000 that we're paying in
rent to Callahan right now," he
said.
"The two volunteer fire sta-
tions do you know how many
calls they respond to that are
outside the city limits?"
Commissioner Barry Holloway
asked.
"I do not have that informa-
tion immediately available,"
Selby said.
"If they're answering numer-
ous calls,,maybe we don't want
to pull that funding," Holloway
said.
"The taxpayers want lower
taxes, so I think they expect
elected officials to explore.
every alternative,"
Commissioner Danny Leeper
said.
"I'm also very glad that
we're not cutting the positions
out of the fire department,"
Commissioner Steve Kelley
said. "I've been getting a lot of
calls. People are very con-
cerned."
One recommended reduc-
tion' that gave some commis-
sioners pause was the proposed
elimination of the assistant

out the assistant county attor-
ney, your workload would be

able level of service?"
"That's certainly an issue for
this board to consider,"
Hallman said. "...We've frankly
been able to turn agenda items
around in two or three days in
the past. That would probably
not be the case in the future.
"Just like a doctor, a lawyer
has a, minimum standard of
care," he said. "If a doctor does
six surgeries a day, he can't say,
'I'll squeeze in a seventh by not
washing my hands.' With
lawyers, the results are not as
dramatic, but it does cost you
money when you get bad legal
advice."
Hallman recommended
revisiting the proposal after
final revenue numbers were
available.
One expenditure thb cop-
mission didn't want to cut, how-
ever, was its support for the
Nassau County Economic
Development Board. The board
receives county funding
through the commission's
grants and aid program, along
with nonprofits such as the
Barnabas Center and the Boys
and Girls Club. The county's
Office of Management and
Budget recommended 10 per-
cent funding cuts to all grants
and aid recipients but the
commissioners felt an excep-
tion should be made for the
Economic Development Board.
"I don't think we should
treat economic development
the same way we treat non-
profits," Johnson said. "... I'm
not comfortable with cutting
them at all." ,
"I'm not trying to defend the
nonprofits, but I think they'd
all have a different view that
they serve a purpose for the
citizens of this county," Selby
said.
"They do," Johnson said.
"I'm saying the county depends
on the Economic Development
Board in a different way from


the other nonprofits."
"I also would recommend
that we keep funding the same
for the Economic Developmeni
Board. They are the economic
engine in this county," Kelley
said. "They are our eyes, our
ears, our mouthpiece. That
funding needs to stay the same.
We can't increase it, but we can
surely maintain it."
The commission agreed to
, continue funding the Economic
Development Board at its cur-
rent rate of $112,500.
The commission also dis-
cussed terminating the contract
of county lobbyist Buddy
Jacobs, who receives an annu-
al stipend of $80,000 from the
county.
"I was instrumental in get-
ting this done to begin with',
and at the time it was done, it
was a need," Holloway said.
"...But in the present time it
would be hard for me to sup-
port that, because there's no
money available in Washington.
It's something maybe that we
should forgo this year and
maybe revisit next year." :
"One of the ways you might
want to approach this would be
to indicate to Mr. Jacobs that
what you look for is a modifi-
cation to the contract where
you went one year with zerb
funding," Hallman said. "In
other words, don't do awaywith
the contract, but extend it for
one year for $1, so next year
you don't have to go through
the whole (hiring) process
again."
Final tax revenue figures areC
due from the Property
Appraiser's Office July 1. The
commission's next budget
meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m.
June 15 in the commission

industry's leading recognition
of expertise as a certified
installer of solar electric sys-
tems ("photovoltaic" or "PV"
systems) from the North
American Board of Certified

CEP).
NABCEP is the most well
established national certifica-
tion organization for renew-
able energy professionals.
Designation as a NABCEP-
certified PV installer is widely
recognized as the "gold stan-
dard" for solar electric profes-
sionals.
To earn his NABCEP cer-
tification, Wilking was
required to pass a rigorous

craft aspects of being a pro-
fessional PV installer. He
needed to demonstrate
knowledge on subjects as
diverse as PV system design,
electrical integration, job safe-


ty, the National Electrical

tion techniques, system
commissioning and trou-
bleshooting. In addition to
passing the exam all certified
NABCEP installers are
required to show that they
have real-word experience
with installation, project lead-
ership and a minimum num-
ber of hours of advanced
training.

Do we want


to be Texas,


or California?


California is a beautiful
place. But it has some unsight-
ly laws, policies and proce-
dures.
While the Golden State
basks in debt, and major com-
panies escape from an anti-
business grip there, some
things make you wonder.
Take lifeguards at Newport
Beach. They can earn more
than $100,000 and up to
$200,000 a year through a
lucrative
union con-
tract. They
are classified
as public
service
employees,
.... so they are
treated just
like firefight-
STEVE'S ers.
MARKET Heck, in
PLACE Nassau
County,
... some fire-
Steve Nicklas f i g h t e r
reportedly
earned (with overtime) more
than $100,000 a year. And the
cost of living is dramatically
lower here.
Like the lifeguards in
Newport Beach, their pensions
are based off of their ending
salaries. So if a firefighter or
lifeguard retires after earning
$100,000 a year, they'll receive
anywhere from 50 to 90 per-
cent of that wage as a pension
for the rest of their lives.
In mathematical terms, this
is an implausible calculation.
Taxpayers will be on the hook
for paying something like $2
million in pension wages if a
firefighter or lifeguard retires
early and lives long. And, don't
forget, that's for someone who
is no longer employed.
Meanwhile, businesses are
leaving California at a pace sim-
ilar to those who poured in diur-
ingthe CG.,Id Pu-li Hich iA-..

ly environmental procedures

locate elsewhere, as in Texas.
In contrast, Texas offers to
prospective companies low
taxes, reasonable regulations
and an accommodative mind-
set. The proof is in the num-
bers: Texas has added 165,000
jobs in the last three years,
while California has lost 1.2
million.

between California and Texas
in terms of being employer
friendly. To improve the state's
position, Gov. Rick Scott is
heading up a department that
will try to entice businesses
and industries to locate here -
in the pursuit of almighty jobs.
To illustrate the current sit-
uation, a major automobile
manufacturer was recently
considering moving to south
Nassau County. The site fea-
tured dual rail lines, two major
highways and a conveniently
located airport and port ter-
minal.
The manufacturer chose
Mississippi instead. The exten-
sive regulations and accompa-
nying delays made it unfeasible
here. It's hard to imagine that
Mississippi could offer any
amenities that the Florida site
could not.
In California's hostile reg-
ulatory climate, it can take six
months to two years to secure
a permit to build a Carl's Jr.
restaurant. In Texas, you can
get a permit in six weeks.
Therefore, the owner of the
Carl's Jr. chain, Hardee's
Restaurants, is planning to
build 300 new stores in Texas

behind.

He's a tree man


HEAHTIIERA. PERRY
News Leader
Donald Musfeldt Sr. has
been a tree man since the
early '80s.
He first started part-time
with W.C. Johns Tree Service
while also working at a gas
station. In the late '80s, he
signed on with Duval Tree
Service in Jacksonville where
he rose through the ranks
from lead man to foreman.
"Between W.C. Johns and
Warren Fallen, I learned from
their teaching and training.
After many years with Duval
Tree Service, I (took) several
classes to gain my Certified
Arborist Degree from the
International Society of
Arboriculture (ISA)," said
Musfeldt.-
When he retired from
Duval Tree Service in 2007,
Musfeldt decided to start his'
own business in Nassau
County.
Al Arborist Tree Service
offers professional tree care at
reasonable rates. With more
than 30 years in the business,
Musfeldt is skilled at preven-
tive maintenance, hazardous
tree removal, tree trimming
and stump grinding.
"I climb it, cut it and my
ground crew takes care of the
rest."
When business slows
down in the winter months, it
can be a bit tough, says
Musfeldt, but he enjoys work-
ing outside and the different
challenges with trimming and
tree removal.
"I am a Certified Arborist
ISA #FL-0520-A. Thanks to
our regular customers on the
island, Blackrock, Nassauville,
Yulee and North Jacksonville
(Eagle Ben and the Cape). We
will survive."
His company has done
work for the Yulee baseball
grounds, which they have also
sponsored since 2008.
Following a tough day
climbing trees, it isn't long
before Musfeldt turns in.
"After I get home from
work, take off my boots, a
cold glass of tea and
dinner, I am out for the
count and don't wake up till
it's time to go to work in the
morning."
Musfeldt shares his Yulee
home with his wife, Victoria,
and their children Stephen,
KC., Donnie Jr. and Sam.

Our legal system, after all these
years, works. It is based upon the
principle that an independent,
fair, impartial and competent
judiciary will interpret and apply
the laws that govern us.


We celebrated Law Day in
the United States on May 1,
2011. Law Day is a time for us
all to reflect upon the impor-
tance of our legal system. Our
forefathers established this
great country so that this
nation, under God, is truly
free, and our legal system
helps sustain that freedom.
The theme of this past Law
Day was based upon the lega-
cy of John Adams. The role of
John Adams in the 1770
Boston Massacre trials is a
model of commitment to the
rule of law and the defense of
rights of the accused even in
the face of public criticism.
John Adams, a leader in
the American Colonial resist-
ance to British rule, defended
a British officer and soldiers
charged with killing five civil-
ians in the "Boston
Massacre." Adams defended
the soldiers regardless of the
threats and criticism leveled
personally against him. John
Adams defended the soldiers
based on his faith in a legal
system that must insure due
process of law.
Those in the legal profes-
sion should and must continu-
ously strive to uphold and
defend the rule of law regard-
less of criticism or personal
attacks.
As we reflect on the rule of
law and our legal system, we
must also consider the role of
the judiciary. Our founding
fathers established the
Federal Judiciary in Article
III of the Constitution of the
United States, and our Florida
State Constitution established
the judiciary in Article V of
the State Constitution.
Our legal system is based
upon the principle that an
independent, fair and compe-
tent judiciary will interpret

would destroy that independ-
ence without which no judici-
ary can be either respectable
or useful."
Many do not understand
that judges are constrained
by rules of procedure, evi-
dence, due process and by
the law itself. Because many
do not understand the con-
straints, the disappointments
are high when decisions are
rendered.
Public criticism, although
supported by our laws and
beliefs, often seeks to draw
attention to one's personal
cause in order to manipulate a
situation to one's own advan-
tage. Our judicial system has
an available remedy when a
judge renders a decision,
based upon the law and/or
facts, that one of the parties
disagrees with, and that rem-
edy is the ability to appeal
that decision to a courtof
appeals. Appellate courts
have and do correcttrial
judges' decisions.
Our legal system, after all
these years, works. It is based
upon the principle that an
independent, fair, impartial
and competent judiciary will
interpret and apply the laws
that govern us. We must be
vigilant to. insure that we pre-
serve and maintain an inde-
pendent, fair, impartial and
competent judiciary. Our
lk-1.,il .i. _m' might some-
times be slow and cumber-
some, and, yes, frustrating,
but it has maintained our free-
doms and rights.

UNOFFICIAL PIE CHART FOR THE AMERICAN DIET


and apply the laws that gov-
ern us. It is also crucial that,
like John Adams, the judici-
ary must adhere to the refer-
enced principles regardless of
criticisms and personal
attacks.
Judges, individually and
collectively, must and do
respect and honor the judicial
office as a public trust and
should always strive to serve
in a manner that enhances
and maintains confidence in
our legal system.
A judge has a tough job in
that he/she is an arbiter of
facts and law for the resolu-
tion of disputes that are,
many times, highly emotional-
ly charged. The disputes
increasingly deal with issues
that are the most troubling
and divisive in our society.
The judicial resolution of
these issues is often difficult
and arduous and, sometimes,
brings the wrath of those who
were involved; and others
who only know one-half of the
facts regarding the issues.
Many seek to vent their frus-
trations or decisions by cries
of "replace' the judge" or sug-
gested remedies far more
than replacement. The U.S.
Supreme Court in Bradley v.
Fisher, 80 US 335 (1871)
explained:
"(I)t is a general principal
of the highest ,importance to
the proper administration of ''
justice that a judicial officer,
in exercising the authority
vested in him, shall be free to
act upon his own convictions,
without apprehension of per-
sonal consequences to him-
self. Liability to answer to
every one who might feel
himself aggrieved by the
action of the judge, would be
inconsistent with the posses-
sion of this freedom, and

The gift of a good education


L ast Sunday was graduation clay for 166
Fernandina Beach High School sen-
iors. They walked proudly across the
UNF stage, waving to family and
friends; all ready, they believe, to make their
mark in the world. As one of their teachers I
was proud, too, and, like them, I believe
they're ready to meet life as an adult and con-
front the hardships, challenges, joys and hap-
piness that are sure to come.
I can say with complete honesty that I have
the best job in the world. Every day I'm privi-
leged to converse with, interact with teach -
some of the finest young men and women in
the world, the students at Fernandina Beach
High School. I can't speak for every teacher,
each of us has a different experience, but I
never fail to be impressed by our students, and
that's a great thing.
Before the graduation ceremony, on the
drive over, I couldn't help but drift back to my
own graduation, the Fernandina Beach High
School Class of 1965. In so many ways it
seemed like last week, but in other ways that
day was light years ago. The opportunities and
challenges that graduates face today, particu-
larly the challenges, well, we could hardly
guess at.
Graduates in 1965 could go to college, work
at one of the two mills, work in a small busi-
ness, maybe family-owned, or go into the serv-
ice, voluntarily or wait and get drafted.
Vietnam, a mysterious place, far away, still
was little known to most of us that would
change, dramatically, in the years to come. But
no one, at least no one I knew, worried about
finding a place in the global economy. No one
feared competition from India or China. No
one worried about multi-national corporations,
the exporting of jobs, a declining manufactur-


ing sector or finding a good
.-" .. job, generally.
After all, we had been
S. ii told, over and over, that edu-
Scation was the key to the
future; education was the
driver, the discriminator, edu-
cation would separate us
0 from our contemporaries.
DEBATE Education, we were told,
could open all doors and
AND most of us believed that.
TACKLE That was 1965 and a lot's
happened since then.
Those students walking
Ron Sapp across that stage at UNF
have all been exposed to the
same "education is the key" mantra, but the
reality of different generational priorities have
hit them squarely in the face. Consider:
Though loudly proclaiming the importance
of education, the Florida Legislature and Gov.
Rick Scott cut per student funding back to
1976 levels.
Though explaining to students, teachers,
parents and citizens that education funding is
an investment in our future, the Florida
Legislature and Gov. Scott cut billions of
"investment" funds from this year's budget,
continuing the trend the legislature's set over
the past several years.
Though rhetorically committing them-
selves to the principle of home rule and the
concept that "the government that governs
best is the government that's closer to the peo-
ple," the Florida Legislature and Scott contin-
ued to pile mandate after mandate most
unfunded on an already over-burdened local
school system.
Students are very adept at identifying


hypocrisy and hypocritical statements, so
when they're told that education is the key to
their future and that education will be the
great discriminator, the thing that separates
them from a world filled with competitors for
jobs in a world economy, and they witness cut
after cut after cut in the very thing that's going
to ensure their success, well, they grow cyni-
cal, at the very least.
I learned this a long time ago, we all know
it if you-put a face, a name to something, it
has more impact; if you personalize a thing, it
has more meaning. So, next time you read
about additional cuts to education, the elimina-
tion of programs or additional mandates added
on to that already burgeoning list of mandates,
think about those 166 students walking across
that stage at UNF, the excitement in their
faces. Think about their hopes, their dreams
and their desire to make their mark in the
world.
I have the best job in the world, I get to
work with these great young people every
day. But all of us have the opportunity to par-
ticipate in their lives, their futures. We can
make sure that each one is given the tools
to compete in a world that is so much
different than the one many of us knew as
graduates, and it's changing exponentially
every day.
So, congratulations to the Class of 2011, a
collection of extraordinary young people. Ah,
but what to do about a gift for 166 graduates? I
know, what about reversing those "genera-
tional priorities" and start saying "no more"
when some legislator or governor talks about
balancing the state's budget on the backs of
students? What about erasing the hypocrisy
that causes the cynicism?
Now, that would be a gift.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Opinion, not fact
As City Attorney, I just have to
respond to Mr. (Philip) Griffin and Mr.
(Patrick) Keogh's flawed legal analysis
of the city's permit fee ordinance and
Florida law discussed in their June 1
opinion Viewpoint article. The fact is -
the information in the viewpoint was
misleading and incorrect.
The city's ordinance and imposi-
tion of quadruple permit fees for work
started before a.
permit is issued by
S the Building
Department are
intended to ensure
compliance. The
city has historical-
ly had -a: problem
with contractors,
Bach many unlicensed,
doing work without i
permits in the city
for unsuspecting property owners. The
city has increased fees for work with-
out a permit in order to stop this illegal
contractor activity. Again, the city's
intent is to ensure compliance with
local and state laws.
Many property owners are unaware
of permit requirements, but contractors
are. certainly aware of requirements.
The city has no qualms about assess-
ing quadruple permit fees to a con-
tractor that illegally begins work know-,
ing a permit is required. Our citizens
deserve this level of regulation to pro-
tect them against unlicensed and.
unscrupulous contractors.
Florida law provides that local gov-
ernments may adopt amendments to
state law that are more stringent, which
is exactly what Fernandina Beach did
by enacting quadruple permit fees.
However, state law also requires that
the city transmit its local ordinance
enacting fees and codes to the state
for approval. The city transmitted
Ordinance 2009-08 enacting quadru-
ple permit fees to the state within the
required 30 days and received no objec-
tions from the state.
Attorney General Pam Bondi
received a complaint from Messrs.
Griffin and Keogh, but she certainly
did not notify the city commission of
"an ongoing illegal enterprise" as stat-
ed by the complaining parties. Attorney
General Bondi simply forwarded the
complaint to the city commission. She
notified Messrs. Griffin and Keogh
that the "Attorney General's Office has
no authority in this regard," meaning
she has no jurisdiction to investigate
the complaint. If the city was engaging
in "extortion and theft," the Attorney
General would have investigated the
matter or at least referred it to local law'
enforcement. Instead, Attorney
General Bondi suggested that Messrs.
Griffin and Keogh should work with
local city officials and the local gov-
ernment attorney to address their con-
cerns -which they have yet to do.
Finally, it is preposterous to sug-
gest that the city of Fernandina Beach
is engaged in illegal activity by assess-
ing quadruple permit fees for work
without a permit when many other
local governments charge the same
quadruple fees. To name a few, Nassau
County, West Palm Beach, Pensacola,
Treasure Island, Palm Beach County,
Escambia County and South Pasadena
all charge quadruple permit fees for
work started without a required permit.

Fact, not pinion
The letters section of this newspa-
per is a forum where people express
differing opinions on critical issues. It
should not be used for character assas-
sination. Yet that's just what Clyde
Davis did in his opinion piece "How
can one person get so many things
wrong?" (May 20) in response to my
article on the new city Rayonier's


TerraPointe plans to build in Yulee.
Davis, whose family has close, ties
to Rayonier wrote:
"I read with wonder the (opinion) of
Robert Weintraub in the paper on May
13 ("Taxpayers on hook for new city").
,How can, one person get so man'
things wrong? My father was Ernest
Davis and my Uncle was Stuart Davis
and I can tell you, they never pur-
chased Crandall, did not sell it to
Rayonier and Dad never managed the
Rayonier mill. I can only observe that
Mr. Weintraub's recital of history and
land titles is just as flawed as his pub-
lished observations on economics and
development."
The source of my information is
what is considered the best history on
Nassau County: "Yesterday's
Reflections II," by Jan H. Johannes,
publi.sh:d in 1984 and:reprinted,in
*2000'. Johannes,.who -used the Amelia
Island Museum of History, official
county records and discussions with
local people to write the history,
reports unequivocally that the Davis
brothers bought the 22,000-acre parcel
that included the town of Crandall from
a man named Brown, built and oper-
ated a sawmill there and sold the prop-
erty to Rayonier in 1935 when the
paper products company began to build
the mill here. Johannes goes on to
report that: "Ernest Davis went on to
become Rayonier's first manager of
the Southeast Timber Division."
Johannes' history refutes Clyde
Davis' effort to sully my credibility.

Pay the price for libraries
Re: 'Time to 'roll up sleeves'," (June
5).
The county commissioners' and
Office of Management and Budget pro-
posals to shut down one of our county
libraries greatly alarms and saddens
me. I am what I am today because of a
public library.
In 19771 I began my working life as
an assembly line worker in Wisconsin.
I had no education, few assets and lit-
tle hope other than spending 30 years
of manual labor with the hopes of retir-
ing with a GM/UAW pension. Looking
back, even those meager hopes would
have been dashed if it had not been for
a vibrant up-to-date library. Without a
free public library, today I would have
been one of the tens of thousands of
laid-off line workers.
But the town I lived in had a great
' library. I went every week to read and
check out last month's periodicals; 1.
couldn't justify my own subscription, I
also read every current book on com-
puters that the library furnished. Today
I work for one of the largest software
companies in the world, Oracle Corp.
I live on Amelia Island, I pay taxes, I
donate to the arts and music commu-
nities, I'm a contributing member of
society, primarily due to having access
to a free public library.
One can say, "Well, today libraries
are irrelevant, we have the Internet." I
who work from the Internet every day
say a resounding "No." The Internet
provides a focused view of a subject
depending on how you want to search
for it. The material is generally not
edited, is not reviewed, is not com-
plete. Libraries provide edited and pub-
lished books and periodicals which
provide complete subject matter. If I
had acquired my education solely from
the Internet it would have been slant-
ed and incomplete.
Also, if we rely on the Internet for
public reading, we create a barrier of
entry to productive citizenship. The
underprivileged will stay underprivi-
leged. Without free public libraries,
we will only increase the divide
between the haves and the have-nots.
If our county needs more revenue
to provide the minimum services of a
civilized society, why not raise taxes? I


MIKE KEEFE/THE DENVER POST


moved here from Virginia, where I
paid more property taxes on an RV
parked in a Fairfax County, Va., park-
ing lot than I now pay for my condo on
Amelia Island..Comparatively, we pay
so little tax in Florida it is ludicrous
that we should shut down basic serv-
ices rather than roll up our sleeves and
pay the price for a civil educated soci-
ety. We used to ask the underprivi-
leged for a literacy test, now we pro-
pose taking away literacy.

Trillions
When people say we, as a country,
owe $14.3 trillion, it sort of rolls off
the tongue. I wonder how our people
will feel when they realize that we are
talking about 970,478 stacks of dollar
bills and each stack is one mile high! I
cannot believe that our president and
his Democrat supporters in Congress
want to add another $2.5 trillion to this
horrible debt. That is another 169,664-
mile-high stacks of dollar bills. Oh, and
another stack of dollar bills 369.6 feet
high. This stupidity makes me sick to
my stomach.
Larry Murray
Fernandina Beach

Will of the people
What exactly is the "will of thepeo-
ple?" You hear politicians use the
phrase when they get elected. Another
colorful expression is "the people have
spoken." But wait a minute! Do candi-
dates really get elected to office
because of the will of the people, or
just "some" of the people? Do they
receive their mandate because all the
, electorate has spoken, or only some
have voiced their preference at the vot-
ing booth? I am sorry to say that it is
the latter in both cases.
How is the will of the people reflect-
ed if all the people don't have the will
to vote?
A bit of research regarding nation-
al elections for 2000, 2004 and 2008
documents that the percentages of
those who voted compared to eligible
voters were 51 percent, 55 percent and
57 percent, respectively.
My sense is that people don't vote
for a variety of reasons. They feel that
their vote doesn't count. How impor-
tant can one vote be in determining
an election result? All politicians are
corrupt and want to be elected so they
can increase their wealth and power. If
they are all the same, then what does
it matter who is elected to office. All
candidates will say anything to get
elected, and then renege on their prom-
ises. Then consider some of these fac-


tors. They make it too difficult to reg-
ister. They want me to join a political
party. It's only a primary so it doesn't
really count. They really don't like any
of the candidate choices or don't know,
anything abbut the candidates. They
are running too late to vote before
work or are too tired afterward to get
to the polls before they close. The exit
polls show that their candidate is los-
ing, so what is the sense. Maybe they
will vote if the weather cooperates. I
think by now you get my drift.
Why should people vote? One of
the most compelling reasons is very
simple. Because we can. It is a right, a
privilege, an opportunity, a gift and a
duty all rolled up into one. We should
never take it for granted. If you are.
like me, it is always nice to have some-
thing to gripe about. If we don't vpte,
we don't have the right to question and
complain about the decisions and poli-
cies made by our government. The
most sobering reason that should moti-
vate us to vote is all those who gave
their lives serving our country and
defending our American way of life.
The price of freedom is'not cheap and
the sacrifices made were horrific.
Every time we cast our ballots, we
remember, honor and thank them.
If we don't vote, we are exercising
our right to be selfish. We don't have to
vote and there is no law that says we
must. No one can force us to vote. But
when we do vote, we go beyond think-
ing only about ourselves. We end up
considering the interests of others in
our community and nation. We let oth-
ers know that what matters to them
also matters to us. We might not be
supporting the same candidate or ref-
erendum. However, the message is
loud and clear that we are engaged in
the process. Our vote may be helping
families struggling to make ends meet
and those looking'for employment It
may affect education and foreign
affairs. And our vote today may just
impact our children, grandchildren
and future generations.
We need to exercise our right to
vote just like we exercise our body. No
pain, no gain. Yes, there is a cost asso-
ciated with voting and becoming
engaged. It will be necessary to
become familiar with the candidates.
We have to do our homework on the
issues. Then we must take a stand ahd
decide how to vote or who to support.
Next we must determine whether we
will commit our time and resources to
a candidate, political party or a partic-
ular issue. Finally, we must vote.
To those already engaged in the
voting process, encourage those
around you that are not. Tell them that
their vote does matter. Let them know
that if done in the proper manner,


every vote counts. Inform them that
when we don't vote, we dishonor the
cause of freedom and liberty and the
Founding Fathers who gave us this
precious gift. Let us once and for all
determine the will of the people based
on all of the people's will.
You might want to add one more
thing when encouraging others to vote.
Tell them that if they don't vote, they
may wake up one day and find out that
they can't.

Job well done
As I drove down AlA a couple days
ago I received a phone message to
contact Nassau County Animal
Services. My heart sank as the only
explanation for such a message was
that my mischievous boxers had
escaped and were running around the
neighborhood or, worse, they had
been apprehended.
I called immediately and was sur-
prised and relieved to hear that I was
the winner of a life-sized wicker Harley-
Davidson, the result of purchasing a
raffle ticket to support our local animal
shelter.
This drummed up emotions that I
had not felt in a number of years..In
2007 two of our family members, Neo
and Hurley, also boxers, mysteriously
disappeared at the hands of a severe-
ly mismanaged Animal Control ("'I
feel like I'm being lied to' missing
dogs' owner in county nightmare,"
Aug. 22,2007). It was soon uncovered
with the help of News-Leader Assistant
Editor Sian Perry and other locals with
similar horror stories that problems
ran deep within the organization.
Thankfully, after public outcry changes
were soon to come.
I spoke briefly with Mr. Joe Novello
as I was at Animal Control picking up
my Harley and snapping a picture for
the paper. He appeared to be a great
man and told me that a lot of things
have changed over the last few years.
I'm a firm believer in the old saying
that actions speak louder than words
and Mr. Novello has done just that.
He has gone above and beyond his
job description with a fundraiser to
benefit Nassau County Animal Shelter.
Actions such as this are surely out of
a love for the animals of Nassau and I
commend him.
I left with a good feeling inside
knowing that our local Animal Control
is in competent and caring hands.
Think you, Joe Novello, and the
staff at Nassau County Animal
Services.

WEDNESDAY. JUNE 8.2011 NEWS News-Leader


Filling the


t's been too quiet in our
home since Nlasala died.
quiet and soul-less.
Losing our 20-year-old cat
was a difficult time for Bucko
and me, and we want to thank
you readers for all the emails
and cards of sympathy. After
losing Masala it took us some
time to even contemplate get-
ting another cat.
But a month came and
went, and one fateful day
Bucko and I paid a visit to
Cats Angels at 709 S. Eighth
St. We were looking for a
young female cat, somewhere
between 6 months and 1 year
old, old enough to be inde-
pendent, young enough to be
shaped into the attentive, lov-
ing pet we desired. Color did-
n't matter, we said, but per-
sonality did.
We wanted a sweet, shy
female cat, like Masala was.
There were cats there to fit
most descriptions and if you
are seeking a cat, there's
most likely one there for you.'
But sadly, nothing lit our.
search image and we left after
our visit, cat-less still.
We didn't have to wait
long. The word went out
among the Cats Angels foster
homes that we were looking
for a cat. Within a day we
were contacted by Patty
Spaldin about her 2-year-old
small female cats that she
was fostering. Sure, we said,
bring them on over to our
house and we'll take a look at
them.
Patty showed up with sis-
r'; Brisby, a black and white
', and Gretchen, a tortoise-
nell. Well, color may not
have mattered to us, in theo-


ry, but
Gretchen
looked very
similar to
Masala, mot-
-, tled col-
oration, yel-
low streak
S on her nose.,
same white
WILD paws, simi-
WAYS lar small
frame.
When she
Pat and Brisby
er-Turley were
released


from their carry cages both
were frightened. Brisby went
back into her cage. Gretchen
dove under our recliner, invis-
ible and out of reach. The
choice was simple! In fact, it
may have been predeter-
mined.
Ever since Patty read my
earlier column about Masala's
end, she had this feeling that
Gretchen was meant for us.
She was right. Patty left with
Brisby and Gretchen
remained in the Turley
household, sight unseen
under the recliner.
For three days Gretchen
stayed mostly hidden, glaring
balefully at us from under the
recliner or, later, under the
guest bed. Eventually my
coaxing made some progress,
along with tasty morsels of
canned cat food and tuna
water in a little bowl she
quickly recognized. Finally
she felt confident to join me
on top of the bed, and purred
when I petted her, and even
ventured a look out the win-
dow at the birds. At night she
came out of hiding, used her

gap
litter box and food and water
bowls nearby and maybe did
more exploring, but silently
and without a trace. But still
any sound, any sight of us,
anything, drove her back to
the back bedroom under the
bed again.
Now, as I write this, four
days since receiving her,
things have taken a dramatic
turn. She came up on the bed
on her own and rubbed
against me, initiating a
petting session. She played
with a toy mouse beside me,
and then, surprisingly, she left
the room of her own accord
and went out into the living
room. This was a major step
for her. I moved my newspa-
per, coffee and computerout
into the living room and sure
enough, she came over to see
me. Before long she was play-
ing with a toy mouse in the
living room, using her box,
eating food from her bowl and
just generally being, well, a
cat!
It's going to be a little
while, I guess, before Bucko
wins her trust too. These past
four days I've been alone with
the cat while he's been out
working. She still is afraid of
him, but judging from my
experience that will change
-soon too once he's in the
house too.
So I think we finally have a
new pet. But the name
"Gretchen" has got to go.
We are looking for more
signs to her personality and
behavior and then will try to
come up with a more fitting
name for the animal that we
hope will be our companion
for the next two decades, like


Masala was. If you have any
name ideas send them our
way and we'll try them on for
size.
It's so sad losing an old
pet, but now, it's a delightful
project to break in a new one.
Little kitty, may this be the
beginning of many years
together, in a bond that only
pet owners know, the shared
interspecies love between
friends.

gist on Amelia Island. She wel-

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Ryan
Smith of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County ';, ".ifs 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.
Burglar attacks
A Fernandina Beach man
was allegedly attacked by a bur-
glar late Sunday night.
About 12:14 a.m. Monday,
Fernandina Beach Police
responded to a home on South
18th Street where they noticed
the front door had been forced
open, according to the police
report.
Police met the victim in the
hallway. He was bleeding pro-
fusely from a head wound but
refused medical attention,
according to the report.
Police allegedly found
numerous smudges and
droplets of blood on the walls
and floor of the hallway lead-
ing to the bedroom, where they
allegedly found a piece of wood
stained v..i h bl.I d droplets, as
well as shards of wood scat-
tered around the carpet.
The victim told police that
he was awakened about 11:45
p.m. Sunday by a loud bang
from the front of his home. He
said he opened his bedroom
door to investigate and a white
male wielding a wooden board
attacked him. The victim said
he was struck in the head and
fell backward into his bedroom
while the man struck him with
the board several more times.
The victim said he managed
to get the board away from his
attacker and chase him from
the residence. The attacker
allegedly fled west on Jasmine
Street. Nothing was taken from
the home.
When police asked the vic-
tim why he had waited over half
an hour to call them, he report-
edly told them he didn't want
any police involvement. He also
refused a victims' rights
brochure, stating that he was
leaving for Bermuda on
Tuesday and did not want any
paperwork.
The suspect is described as
a white male, about 20 years
old, about 5 feet, 5 inches tall
and. 150 pounds, wearing a
liiii-colored hoodie, brown
pants and a silver hat.
Burglary attempts
Three burglary attempts


occurred within moments of
each other on Fifth, Sixth and
Broome streets Sunday night
and early Monday morning,
according to the Fernandina
Beach Police Department.
About 11:35 p.m. Sunday,
police responded to a residen-
tial burglar alarm on Broome
Street. The owner of the resi-
dence said he had been awak-
ened by the sound of someone
kicking at his exterior garage
door. He.said that as he went
downstairs to investigate, the
noise stopped. Police found a
left shoe print on the garage
door.
About 1:18 a.m. Monday,
police responded to yet anoth-
er burglary call, this time at a
house on North Fifth Street.
The victim told police that
between 11:40 and 11:50 p.m.,
two people had allegedly
entered her unlocked SUV but
left quickly when the alarm
went off.
The victim said her friend's
son saw two, males running
away from the SUV after the
alarm sounded.
Police were also dispatched
early Monday morning to a
home on North Sixth Street.
The victim claimed that she was
awakened by her daughter, who
said someone might be attempt-
ing to burgle the family vehi-
cles. The victim's daughter told
police that she had heard a
beeping noise coming from the
garage around 11:45 p.m.
Sunday.
She went to her bathroom
window to investigate and saw
that the garage door was open
and the headlights of one of the
family cars, a Porsche, were on.
She said she also saw a shad-
owy figure moving east through
the yard.
Police discovered that the
Porsche had been entered and
its contents ransacked, though
nothing appeared to be miss-
ing.
There had also been an
unsuccessful attempt to start
the car. The family's other car,
a Toyota 4Runner, had also
been entered, though nothing
was taken.
A potential latent print was
lifted from the door of the
Porsche. The case is pending.
Gates stolen
A pair of 500-pound alu-
minum y'.a., ,.-as stolen
between .1:, -" ,. I 23 from C.
Brett Collectibles, 2166 Sadler
Road.
On May 23, Fernandina
Beach Police responded to a
call from Jennifer Matthews, C.
Brett Collectibles office man-
ager, who said the gates, val-
ued at about $5,000, had been
stolen sometime over the week-
end.
The gates had been leaning
unsecured against the rear of
the building, according to
Matthews, but since they


weighed about 500 pounds
apiece, it would have taken
more than one person and a
large truck or trailer to steal
them.
Police contacted North
Nassau Recycling Center and
found that the gates would
bring about J' .11., ,i, .- who
disassembled them and sold
them as scrap metal. However,
the gates had not been taken
there. An employee of North
Nassau Recycling Center told
police that stolen metals would
likely be sold in Georgia, where
state law does not require deal-
ers to keep meticulous records
of transactions, the report stat-
ed.

Fishing's a dream for Nelson, 'Long Haul'


he loud cracking
noise of the outrig-
ger clip releasing
T 80-pound trolling
line immediately caught the
:attention of the "Long Haul"
fishing party, including Al
:Nelson, son Bob and friend
Tony Raines from Bremen,
Ga. The Yulee-based bluewa-
ter fishing
team had
already
enjoyed an
excellent day
of trolling
offshore of
Amelia
Island with a
catch of six
dolphin and
S.OUTDORS a released
... sailfish.
Te~ryacoss "Bob
NTerrylacoss Nelson
grabbed the deeply bent 80-
pound class trolling rod,
placed the rod butt in the
holder and soon prepared for
a long and hard battle," Al
Nelson said. "By now, we
were all extremely pumped as
a big blue marlin began to
'greyhound' from starboard to
port right across our trolling
spread.
"It was typical havoc for a
few minutes as Tony and I
retrieved fishinglures and
lines, and in the meanwhile,
chased down Bobby's hard-
The threesome of fisher-
men settled in for a long, hard
battle while hoping that the
large saltwater hook had a
good set and their terminal
trolling tackle would hold up
to the saltwater challenge.
"Bob's blue marlin hit
right at the tail end of a large
weedline," Al Nelson said. "It
was kind of funny since all
morning we really were not
marking any bait or seeing
any flying fish. The fish were
just there and we just hap-
pened to be in the right spot
at the.right time with the r .
right trolling pattern and the
right lure combination.
"In fact, Bob's blue hit a
blue and white C&H Stubby
rigged with a large ballyhoo.
The water temperature was:
quite warm-at 81 degrees."
Most of Bob Nelson's blue
marlin battle took place deep
under the surface while the
125-pound billfish occasional-
ly wallowed halfway out of the


SUBMITTED PHOTOS

pares to release son Bob Nelson's 125-pound blue marlin caught and released during a recent deepwater fishing trip, left. Bob Nelson and Tony
Raines are pictured with a nice catch of Amelia Island dolphin weighing to 31 pounds, right, aboard the "Long Haul" May 28.


-water, attempting to dislodge
the large saltwater trolling
hook.
"I" actually had to drive our
boat alongside the hooked
marlin to keep the billfish
from spooling Bob's 80-class
trolling reel," Al Nelson said.
"Finally, after a 45-minute
fight,.1 was able to secure the
bill of Bob's blue marlin and
dislodge the saltwvater hook.
"Paired with Tony Raine's
sailfish that enjoyed a quick
release right off the transom
of our trolling boat, six dol-
:phin weighing to 31 pounds
and Bob's 125-pound blue
marlin, we had one heck of a
good day bluewater fishing
off Amelia Island."
Al Nelson is no stranger to


success when it comes to salt-
water fishing. During the
early 1980s Capt. Nelson
chartered his 31-foot Bertram
"Un-Winder" successfully for
several fishing seasons. His
best offshore trip included a:
pair of white marlin that were
hooked and released simulta-
neously. Fishing aboard the
"Un-Winder" were brothers
Kim and Paul Stewart, Capt.
Burgess Lewellen, Barbara
Thorton and Capt.-Nelson.
Al Nelson entered team'
"Un-Winder" into the 1983
Greater Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament and took first-
place big fish honors with a
stud of a king mackerel
weighing 48 pounds and
change. The "big mack" gob-


bled up a large silver mullet
trolled just offshore of the.St.
Marys north jetty rocks.
Eventually the "Un-
Winder" was replaced with a
faster, 32-foot "Whitewater"
sport fishing boat. Capt.
Nelson named his new boat
"Long Haul" after his truck-
ing business.,
Al Nelson's new sport fish-
ing boat was barely broke in
when his "Long Haul" fishing
team won the 2002 Fernan-
dinia Beach kingfish tourna-
ment. Once again his.winning
43-pound king mackerel gob-
bled up a large silver mullet,
however the fishing location
included the "red top" condos
at Jacksonville Beach.
Al Nelson's latest win


came during the 2010 Amelia
Island Bluewater Shootout.
Their catch included a first-
place wahoo, first-place dol-
phin and second-place sail-
fish.
I asked Nelson if he could
nail one thing down that
attributes to his many fishing
successes.
"I would have to say per-
sistence," he said. "Our fish-
ing team is continually watch-
ing our trolling lures or baits,
making sure they are not only
trolling properly, but are not
tangled or somewhere in the
trolling pattern where they
need to be adjusted."
I look for Nelson's fishing
team to continue there fishing
success for many fishing sea-


sons to come.

>' Steve Stricker held on for a
one-shot win at Jack Nicklaus's
Memorial Tournament The
44-year-old was leading by two
in Ohio before a &nrse finish in which he
bogied the 18th. In the end, Stricker's
4-under par final round was enough for
him to beat Matt Kuchar and Brandt
Jobe by a stroke, for his 10th career
victory. The win moves him to number
four in the world rankings and the
highest ranked American.


World Golf Hall of Fame Member
Nick Price has been named the
Yi^' 2011 Ambassador of Golf. The
Ambassador of Golf Award is
presented annually to a person or persons who.
have fostered the ideals of the game on an
international level and whose concern for others
extends beyond the golf course. An 18-time
winner on the PGA Tour, highlighted by three
major championship victories including back-to-
back grand slam titles at the 1994 British Open
and PGA Championship, Price has long been
one of the most respected players on both the
PGA TOUR and Champions Tour and has left
his mark on charitable organizations across
South Florida.


One of the biggest weaknesses that the amateur golfer has is the tendency to get very
tentative when it comes to putting. We try to hit the putt so perfect that we are looking
for it to "die" as it reaches the hole. This is a good strategy on long putts where you
M want to lag them near the hole, but we do it too many times on the short putts. You
need to have the reverse mindset and try to slam the putt into the hole. The area with-
. Z 3 in a couple feet of the hole is where everybody walks during their round. As a result,
there is a greater likelihood of having more spike marks in place to knock putts off-line. Therefore,
you need to put enough authority into the short putts to make sure you keep the line. Even if you
go past the hole more than a few times, this is a better way to make more putts in the future.

Joke Patrol'
Former television pro-

Amelia Island screens a
TV pilot he produced in
1986 called "America's
Favorite Jokes" at the
Council on Aging, above.
The premise was to have
the "Joke Patrol," a
group of three beautiful
girls dressed in Joke
Patrol jumpsuits, roam
the city in a specially
painted "Joke Patrol"
truck and approach
everyday folks in the
street at random to tell
their favorite joke. Some
were hilarious, others
told jokes so badly that
they were often even fun-
nier. After the screening,
Traum asked the audi-
ence if anyone had a joke
they wanted to tell.
Several, including Sarah
Kenney, right, got up out
of their chairs or wheel-
chairs and told jokes.

JUNt 8.2011 AROUND TOWN News-Leader


June film series continues this weekend


This weekend the Amelia Island Film
Society June Series at the Fernandina
Little Theatre will continue by presenting
three classic foreign films: "Malena,"
"Cinema Paradiso" and "Bread and
Tulips." The society will offer two screen-
ings Friday, Saturday and Sunday, at 6:30
p.m. and 9 p.m.
"Malena" (2000), directed by Giuseppe
Tornatore, is set in World War II Italy.
The 13-year-old Renato and his pals
become infatuated with Malena, a beauti-
ful young war widow who is" the obses-
sion of every man and the envy of every
woman. When news of the death of
Malena's husband arrives, Malena's beau-
ty turns into a curse. No longer protected
from male advances by her marital status,
she becomes fair game.
In 2001 "Malena" was nominated for
two Oscars in the categories of Best
Cinematography and Musical Score. This
film will open the weekend event on June
10.
"Cinema Paradiso" (1988), also direct-


ed by Tornatore, will be screened on June
11. Set in a small Sicilian village, the story
depicts three stages in the life of Salvatore,
who leaves his village on the advice of his
mentor as a boy and returns home many
years later as a prominent Roman movie
director. He returns to attend the funeral
of the town's former film projectionist and
in so doing embarks upon a journey into
his boyhood just after World War II when
he became the unofficial son of the pro-
jectionist.
In the dark confines of the craniped
theater, the townsfolk come to escape the
grim realities of post-war Italy while
Salvatore learns most of what he'll ever
learn about love,, loss and loyalty from his
b.loved mentor and his nights spent at
Cinema Paradiso. This film received the
Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film.
On June 12, the "Film Bread and
Tulips" will be shown twice at the theater.
Rosalba, during a bus trip, finds herself
alone and forgotten in a highway caf6. She
decides not to wait for her husband and


sons to come back to pick her up, but to
find her own way home. She is a little
offended that she has been forgotten by
her family and has been told by her hus-
band to stay put so, rebelling a little, she
finds herself hitch-hiking director Venice.
Her adventure in Venice begins by meet-
ing strange but fascinating people: Fermo,
an anarchistic florist; Grazia, a masseuse;
and Fernando, a waiter from Iceland.
The following weekend, beginning June
15, the AIFS will present an Audrey
Hepburn retrospective tribute that will
include five of the films of the Hollywood
Oscar winner. They will include, "Sabrina,"
"Charade," "Roman Holiday," "Breakfast at
Tiffany's" and "My Fair Lady."
Tickets are $ 10 per screening ($8 for
AIFS members) arid can be purchased by
credit card in advance by calling (904)
624-1145 and leaving purchase informa-,
tion. Tickets will also be available at the
door at the theatre, 1014 Beech St.,
