Officers attempted to speak to
Hooper, but he was only able to say, "I
was just walking," before trailing off,
According to the police report.
Police spoke to one witness who
stated that she was in her home when
'she heard about six gunshots. When
:she went outside to investigate, she
,saw Hooper on the ground and called
911.
Another witness said he was driv-
ing north on Vernon Street when he
saw Hooper and stopped to assist him.

smoke

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Monday's rains did little to abate
the wildfires burning throughout the
area. Smoke still hangs in the air across
the county, and conditions are still dari-
gerously dry, according to Nassau
County Interim Fire Chief Matt Graves.
Shifting wind conditions move
smoke into and out of different areas
of the county. Smoke completely
obscured the horizon at the beach for
an hour on Sunday It has filled down-
town Fernandina repeatedly.Ash falls
on .parked cars in Yulee. And every-
where, a smoky odor.
The state Division of Forestry
reported Tuesday that the fire risk
remains "very high" in Nassau, Clay
and Duval counties. There are 30 active
wildfires in the three counties, includ-
ing 14 in Nassau.
The smoke is coming from all direc-
tions with more than 200,000 acres
burning within a 50-mile radius of
Jacksonville, including in Georgia,
according to the state forestry divi-
sion.
Graves said Tuesday that the coun-
tywide burn ban, passed by the Nassau
County Commission on May 23,
remains in force.
"We are continuing the burn bin
on a week-to-week basis due to the
C.>nJdiliij ." he said. "According to (the
Divi-ion of Forestry) we have 14 active
wildfires in the county at this time.
They range in size from three-tentlhs of

Consolidate island fire services?


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County and Fernandina
Beach officials discussed the possi-
bility of consolidating the city and
county fire departments during a meet-
ing of the Amelia Island Joint Local
Planning Agency, a combination of
both commissions. '
County Commissioner Danny
Leeper said consolidation had been
recommended in a recent study of the
county's emergency services.
"There were a couple of paragraphs
that mentioned the possible consoli-


dation of fire rescue services between
the city and the county," he said. "I
think our taxpayers are looking toward
elected officials to look at everything
that could bring cost savings.... I'm not
saying that.consolidation is where
we're going to end up, but I think it's
something to discuss.
"I'd like to see a working group get
together to discuss it," Leeper added.
"I'd like (Nassau County Interim Fire
Chief Matt) Graves and (Fernandina
Beach Fire Chief Dan) Haries to get
together and discuss who they'd like
on that working group."
Among the consolidation proposals


discussed was one for the city to take
over the one county fire station on
Amelia Island. City Manager Michael
Czymbor said the JLPA should con-
sider the option as a natural next step,
as the city had already taken over life-
guard duties on county beaches.
"Several months ago we entered
an interlocal agreement on ocean res-
cue service.... We believe we've got a
successful track record. We think it's
a natural progression to talk about
this," he said. "I would wholehearted-
ly agree with the commissioner that if

Island-wide animal control?


RYANSMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
is considering a proposal to turn over
animal control services in unincorpo-
rated areas of Amelia Island to the
Nassau Humane Society. The propos-
al was advanced during a meeting of
the Amelia Island Joint Local Planning
Agency a combination of the
Fernandina Beach city and the Nassau
County commissions.
The Nassau Humane Society
already handles animal control for


Fernandina Beach. A presentation
June 6 proposed giving it responsibil-
ity for the areas of Amelia Island out-
side of city limits areas that are cur-
rently the responsibility of Nassau
County's Animal Services Department.
"We had a proposal a couple of
years ago from the Humane Society to
take over animal control on the south
end of the island," County Manager
Ted Selby said. "We did a study that
indicated it was not in our best inter-
est at that time. They have a new pro-
posal, however, and we'd certainly be
prepared to hear that proposal."


City Manager Michael Czymbor
said that the city had been -',ili
with the Nassau Humane Society's
handling of city animal control serv-
ices.
"We believe they're going to pres-
ent a very cost-effective proposal, and
we urge the county to consider the
proposal," he said.
Nassau Humane Society president
John Landregan said that his organi-
zation could be more effective at polic-
ing the island than the county Animal

hearing the chatter of her fam-
ily around the house. She had a
deep love of butterflies and
dragonflies. Her room has them
on her walls, hanging from her
ceiling arid clinging to medical

She would laugh and laugh
at her little nieces and their girly
ways. Her most treasured time
was her family time around the
pool with family and friends.
We shall always miss her
beautiful smile, her loving eyes
and mostly her love and
strength.,
Her Dad and I will always
thank God for bringing our
most precious gift,, "Keyla
Victoria Newsom," into our lives
even if it was for such a short
time. We have a lifetime of mem-
ories.

ing parents, Otis (lay) and

the county commission
wants to, we continue to dis-

But some county com-.
missioners wanted to see a
full proposal in writing before
discussing it publicly.
"I think we're very pre-
mature on hearing a propos-
al now, and it goes out to the
public and people go one way
or the other and get all up in
arms," said County
Commissioner Stacy
Johnson. "... No disrespect,
but I don't think we should
hear it tonight."
"I'd like to see it first,"
agreed County

Holloway.
"May I ask my fellow
(city) commissioners how
they feel?" said Fernandina
Beach Mayor Susan Steger.'
"Do we have a say?"
"Sure," said County

Boatrght.
"If in fact this is a propos- ,

ANIMAL
Continued from 1A
Services Department, which
has to spread its officers over
a large area.
"We feel we're more than
qualified to provide animal
control services for the unin-
coFporated area of Amelia
Island," Landirgan said. "I
did some' demographics on
Amelia Island as well as
Nassau County. The.total
Amelia Island population is a
little over 21,000. Forty-five
percent of that is in the unin-
corporated area of Amelia
Island."
Landregan said that
Nassau County Aniinal
Services had to police about
59,000 people in the county -
16 percent of them living in
the unincorporated areas of
Amelia Island. The Nassau
Humane Society,. he said,
could better police those
households and ease the bur-
den on the county's animal
control officers.
/Landregan said it was
important that complaints
about animal nuisances be
responded to in a timely'
manner.
"Animal control is a
health and safety issue," he
said. "There are rabid ani-
mals. There are vicious dogs
that could attack a child."
And, he said, the Nassau
Humane Society could do
the job at a cost saving to the
county:
"I came up with a pro-
posal for the unincorporated
area of Amelia Island that's
$88,000," he said. "That's less
than 10 percent of your ani-
mal control budget, and it's
serving 16 percent of the
human population. ... I think
it's a win-win. I'd be more
than happy to get with Ted to
look at some numbers."
County commissioners,
however, weren't so sure the
county would see a savings.
"We already have the
facilities and staff in place,
so it looks to me like we'd
be spending an additional
$88,000," County
Commissioner Stacy
Johnson said. "I'd have to see
where the savings are.


Would we be laying off staff
to make up that savings?"
"We'll take that into
account, as well as anything
else you want us to take into
account, as we sit down and
discuss it," Selby said.
The county commission
instructed Selby to review
the Nassau Humane
Society's proposal and report
his findings at a later meet-
ing.

FCAT
Continued from 1A
Standards in reading and
mathematics (grades 3-10),
science (grades 5, 8 and 11),
and writing (grades 4, 8 and
10).
However, the Florida
Department of Iducation
began transitioning this year
from the FCAT to the new
FCAT2.0 and Florida End-of-
Course (EOC) Assessments,
These new assessments are
based on updated, more rig-
orous curriculum standards
that were adopted by the State
Board of Education several
years ago.
The new 2.0 assessments
were given for the first time
this year in reading for grades
3-10 and mathematics for
grades 3-8. The old FCAT
assessments were given for
the last time in mathematics
for grade 10 and science for
grades 5, 8 and 11.
The transition will be com-
plete when the FCAT 2.0 sci-
ence assessments are admin-
istered in 2012 for grades 5
and 8.
The new Florida End-of-
Course Assessments are com-
puter-based tests designed to
measure student achievement
of the Next Generation
Sunshine State Standards for
specific middle- and high-
school level courses, as out-
lined in their course descrip-
tions.
The Algebra 1 EOC
Assessment was administered
for the first time in May and
the results released last week.
Of 767 ninth graders tested,
Nassau County had a mean
scale score of 53, lower only
than St. Johns (55) of sur-
rounding counties. Putnam
and Duval both came in at 47
and Clay.at 52:.
"Since this is a transition
year for this new EOC assess-
ment, results are being report-
ed on a special scale known as
a T-score scale of 20-80. On
this scale, a score of approxi-
mately 50 is at the statewide
average," said Florida
Education Commissioner Dr.
Eric J. Smith in a press
release. "Individual Student
Reports will indicate whether
the student's score falls with-
in the high, middle or low lev-
els as compared to other stu-


dents in Florida. For students
who entered grade 9 in the
2010-11 school year and are
enrolled in Algebra 1 or an
equivalent course, each stu-
dent's Algebra 1 EOC
Assessment score must be
used to calculate 30 percent of
his or her final grade in the
course. The method for apply-
ing this requirement will be
determined and applied by -
each school district."
Smith added, "Algebra 1 is
widely considered as one of
the most important gate-
keeper courses for a pathway
to college or a career certifi-
cation program, and the skills
it provides are invaluable
throughout life."
The Biology 1 and
Geometry EOC Assessments
will be administered for the
first time in May 2012; the
U.S. History-' EOC
Assessment will be adminis-
tered for the first time in 2013;
and the Civics EOC
Assessment will be adminis-
tered to seventh graders for
the first time in 20"14..
Because this is the first
year of FCAT 2.0 and achieve-
ment levels will not be estab-
lished by the state until next
fall, students earned their lev-
els by competing against each
other statewide, according to
the DOE. Level 3 and above is
.considered "proficient"
According to the DOE, a
method was used to link the
new FCAT 2.0 assessment
results to the old FCAT score
scale, resulting in essentially
the same percentage of stu-
dents statewide scoring at
each achievement level in
2011 as in 2010.

statewide assessment results

sition to FCAT 2.0 and EOC
assessments, visit http://fcat.

Graves said most of the fires
are concentrated on the West
Side, although there are two
currently being monitored in
Yulee one off Radio Avenue
and one, burning since about
May 20, off Gene Lasserre
Boulevard.
Like the other fires, the one
off Gene Lasserre is under con-
trol. Graves said wildfires often
have to be contained and
allowed to run their course.
"There Are some hot spots
and pockets out in that swamp-
like area that we can't get-a fire
truck to, and they're just being
allowed to burn out," he said.
Graves also expressed doubt
that Mpnday's rains would mit-
igate the fire danger in the coun-
ty. It rained hard in downtown
Fernandina for the first time in
weeks. But showers have been
isolated throughout the county
in recent days, with no soaking
rainfall.
"At this point it's too prema-
ture to say, but, I don't believe
we received enough volume to'
make a difference," he said."...
I don't see any relief in the near
future. We'll have to see a sig-
nificant amount of rain, and our
drought index will have to drop

substantially."
With the drought index at
690 on Tuesday, Graves said
the county was almost literally
bone dry. The Keetch-Byram
Drought Index measures the
amount of moisture in the top
three feet of soil, with a scale of
0 to 800.
"Anything north of 700 is
Sdesert-like," Graves said. "Eight
hundred is the absolute top of
the scale there is no moisture
at all in the soil. We're growing
in the county at about five or
six points a week.
"When we're inching up at
six (points) week, July-which
is typically a dry month is just
going to push that even further."
Even the afternoon storms
that often characterize Florida
summers could cutise prob-
lems, he said.
"A lot of the afternoon
storms we see in the summer
are as hurtful as they are help-
ful., They may bring rain, but
they also bring lightning, and
lightning strikes are the pri-
mary cause of the fires we've
seen in the county so far."
The most important pre-
caution Nassau County resi-
dents can take, Graves said, is to
adhere to the burn ban.
"All outdoor burning should
be reported," he said. "It is very
dangerous at this point.A fire in
the wrong area could cost peo-
ple their homes very quickly
and very easily."

When government is

in business to keep

government in business


"What could foster
an environment
where govern-
ment is work-
ing for itself, not for the peo-
ple?
Cities and counties com-
monly structure their build-
ing departments to be self-
regulated and
self-supporting. This can cre-
ate an atmosphere whereby
building officials become
punitive and misguided,
seeking out revenues
through excessive fees and
fines.
That could be especially.
true when building activity.
slows to a crawl -.as is the
case right now. And building
officials must manufacture
.business and revenues for
their departments to remain
intact.
This appears to be the
case in Fernandina Beach,
for instance. The building ,
department here has irked
residents, deterred business-
es and created a restrictive
environment. It appears to
be an overt effort to gener-
ate revenues at the expense
of the public.
For instance, building
officials commonly assess
penalties if someone doesn't'
apply for or comply with a
permit. In Fernandina
Beach, building officials
levied fines of $7,760 in a
two-year period from 2007 to
2009. In the next two'years,
the penalties jumped to
$42,230, or a 500 percent
increase. Since there was
less construction, enterpris-
ing city officials increased
the amount of the fines.
Penalties are assessed for
a variety of reasons.
Oftentimes, they are even
questionable in nature. For
instance, a resident can be
fined if a contractor drops off
building materials in his yard
before a city permit (for the
construction) has been
granted.
Once the application for a
permit is received by the
city, it can take months
before it is approved, espe-
cially for a commercial appli-
cation. In addition, permits
can be amended and other
requirements can be imple-
mented in a whimsical and
costly process.
When questioned about
it, city building officials can
be defensive and confronta-
tional. Business owners will
often placate officials in an
effort to avoid retaliation.,
Meanwhile, residents will


sometimes
complete


through the
hassles of
S compliance.
e h The ulti-
mate
STUEV'S responsibil-
MAlRhl ET ity over the
pLACrE building
department,
lies with
Steve Nicklas city com-
missioners.
They hire the city manager,
who oversees the various
departments. The building
department should not be
allowed to run amok without
proper guidance from upper-
level officials.
At least one local busi-
nessman has sworn off
building anything else within
the city limits because of the
antics of local officials. Pat
Keogh, who restored a dilap-
idated house and converted
it into the popular 29 South
restaurant, has had his fill of
city frustrations.
"They're all trying to
keep their ship afloat,"
Keogh says about building
officials. "They're all in busi-
ness for themselves."
Keogh also invested
into blighted South Eighth
Street in Fernandina Beach,
reviving an eyesore building
into what is now the chic
Merge restaurant. Other
local businessmen and devel-
opers have delayed improve-
ments within the city
because of the contentious
atmosphere.
City commissioners must
remedy the situation before
investors and businesses
choose to go elsewhere.
Already, outlying commer-
cial corridors such as
Sadler Road and A1A are
creating competition for
downtown businesses and
restaurants.
There needs to be contin-
ual investment and improve-
ment in downtown
Fernandina Beach from
. the private sector, not the
public sector. After all, gov-
ernment is there to assist
and protect the public, not
oppose it.

cial advisor with a major
Wall Street firm who lives on
Amelia Island. His'business

other area newspapers. He

States population


grows more slowly


[Dniversity ofFlorida
GAINESVILLE Florida
was again one of the country's
leaders in population growth
in the last decade, but the
growth rates over the past few
years have been among the
lowest in the state's history,
according to a new study by
the University of Florida.
Florida's permanent resi-
dent population increased by
more than 2.8 million between
2000 and 2010 an increase
of 17.6 percent to 18,801,310.
That mark was the third-
largest numeric increase and
the eighth-largest percentage
increase in the country.
However, the growth rate
lagged behind previous peri-
ods for the state, and projec-
tions are the growth rate
will steadily decline through
2040.
"Growth rates varied con-
siderably during the decade,
not only from county to coun-
ty but also from year to year,"
said Stan Smith, director of the
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research at UF's
Warrington College of
Business Administration.
"Fueled by an expanding
economy and a booming hous-
ing market, population increas-
es from 2003 to 2006 were
among the largest in Florida's
history," he said. "As econom-
ic growth slowed and the hous-
ing market cooled later in the
decade, population growth
declined as well, reaching its
lowest levels in more than 60
years."
In the decades from 1970 to
2010, Florida saw annual'
population increases that aver-
aged between .280,000 and
320,000. The projected annual
growth is 252,000 for 2010 to
2020 and 255,000 for 2020 to
2030.
Smith said the slow eco-
nomic recovery and a dismal
job market have hampered
population growth. 41
"Jobs are a major reason
people come to Florida," Smith
said. "But Florida lost about 1
million jobs from 2007 to 2010.
As the economy recovers, pop-
ulation growth will increase as
well." '
Sixty-five of Florida's 67
counties gained population
during this past decade. Four
counties grew by more than
50 percent, and 20 grew by


more than 20 percent. The
largest numerical increases
over the past decade occurred
in Orange County (up 249,612
to 1,145,956), Miami-Dade
County (up 242,656 to
2,496,435) and Hillsborough
County (up 230,278 to
1,229,226). Smith attributed
this increase to those counties'
long history of growth and that
each is home to a major met-
ropolitan city.
Flagler and Sumter coun-
ties experienced the fastest
growth in the state. In 2000,
Flagler County's population
was 49,832. According to 2010
Census data, that number had
grown to 95,696. Sumter
County's population in 2000
was 53,345 and had risen to
93,420 by 2010. Smith attrib-
uted Flagler's growth to the
popularity of the area's Palm
Coast development and
Sumter's growth to the estab-
lishment of The Villages, a pop-
ular and growing retirement
community.
The only two counties to
lose population were Monroe
(down 6,499 to 73,090) and
Pinellas (down 4,953 to
916,542). Smith said a large
portion of Monroe County is
not developable because of
marshlands while Pinellas
County is already densely pop-
ulated and his little room to
grow.

Girl got the


governor s ear


about bullies
Fourteen-year-old Amanda Crawford is a
good student. She makes good grades; she
doesn't cause trouble; she's respectful of
other people. But this past year, life at school
in upstate South Carolina has been almost
unbearable at times.
So she told her mother, Vickie Crawford,
she wanted to ask for help. She wrote four
letters: to the president, to a U.S. senator, to
a congressman and to a governor.
On June 3, her mother-got a phone call.
'This is Nikki Haley,"
the caller said.
Nikki Haley is the gover-
nor of South Carolina.
"She asked me if I was
aware that my daughter had
written her a letter," Vickie
Crawford said. "I told her,
yes, I knew about the let-
ter."
FROM The governor said she'd
THE like to speak to Amanda
HOME and then meet with her
OFFICE later on. She wanted to
help. "I'm a mom," she told
-....- Vickie, "and that letter
PhilHudgins broke my heart."
Amanda and the gover-
nor talked on the phone for about 10 min-
utes. And then on June 8, Amanda and her
mother drove to Columbia, S.C., to meet with
. Gov. Haley. They talked about bullying in'
schools.
Haley this powerful, self-assured gover-
nor who has been mentioned as a possible
Republican vice presidential candidate said
she could relate to Amanda's problem. As a
child,. she had been a victim of bullying.
Amanda sat on a couch in the governor's
office and talked about what had been going
on. Nearly all year long, she said, perhaps
because she is quiet and shy, she has been
verbally bullied at school Sometimes it was
physical. She has been shoved into a wall, hit
in an eye and on the back of her head,
shoved in her back. When the bully finally
was suspended, her friends continued the
abuse, the name-calling, the death stares.
The governor asked Amanda what she
wanted to do. "I told her I wanted to be the
voice of everyone who wouldn't come for-
ward, for people who were bullied," she said.
"I just wanted it to stop...."
So the governor of South Carolina and
this quiet 14-year-old came up with a plan:
They'll go on the road in the fall, the two of
them speaking about bullying at schools
across the state, telling students that it's all
right to snitch on bullies.
Through it all, Amanda said, "God has
been on my side. ... My life verse is
Ecclesiastes 3:11: "He has made everything
beautiful in its time.'" But she was getting
depressed, even with her faith, even with the
support of her parents, Stanley and Vickie.
But now, things are looking up. Amanda
has God, she has her parents and now she
has the governor, who has her back.
When the governor called, Amanda said,
"I felt that someone really cared. I felt like
something was actually going to be done."

COMMUNITY THANKS

Golf scholarships
A note of sincere thanks from the
Fernandina Men's Gold Association to all the
contributors who gave money and/or in-kind
gifts in support of the scholarship program
sponsored by the association. The FBMGA
held the first of two golf tournaments in May
with the second held in October for the pur-
pose of raising funds to support these schol-
arships for our two local high schools.
Currently there are eight young men or
women receiving support, with two addition-
al to be added this year. Again, thanks to the
individuals and local businesses that gener-
ously gave in support of this program.

Hunger a

The residents of Nassau County recently
participated in the national "Stamp Out
Hunger" food drive that took place May 14.
This is an effort led by the U.S. Postal Service
each year in May that strives to obtain dona-
tions of food that are shared with local fdod
banks and pantries. The major recipient of this
donated food in Nassau County is Barnabas
Center, which manages the most significant
food pantry in the county.
This year, the post office food drive generat-
ed almost 16,000 pounds of food that will in
turn be distributed to individuals and families
in need. Some 100 volunteers provided more
than 400 hours of service to make the food
drive a success. We thank all of our partners
who helped. Barnabas Center Kelley's Pest
Control, the Nassau County Bar Association,
the Nassau County Sheriff's Office, Nassau
County Fire and Rescue, Florida 3rd Alpha
Cadets and their fathers, FSCJ students, the
Nassau County Shrine Club and numerous
dedicated volunteers who ranged in age from
eight to 60 years.
In 2010, Barnabas Center provided more
than 90,000 pounds of food to 4,660 people who
were hungry or at risk of hunger due to finan-
cial, medical or other hardships in their family.
This was a significant increase from the
amount of food provided in previous years a
reflection of the impact that the economy has
had on our community. This year, Barnabas is
on track to distribute just as many pounds of
food and is able to do so because of the gen-
erosity of those who live in our community.
Because we live in America the land of
abundance we often take for granted that our
fellow citizens have access to sufficient
resources to feed themselves and their fami-
lies. In fact, hunger or food insecurity (not
knowing from where your next meal is 'com-
ing) is a reality for one in six people in this
country. That translates to almost 12,000 men,
women and children in Nassau County, and we
see many of these people through our food
pantry.
The stereotype of the persort struggling
with poverty and/or homelessness no longer


effects our n

L represents the face of those
seeking food assistance. More
often, they are the working
poor, families with children
and senior citizens who can-
not make ends meet and are
forced to choose between
rent, utilities, medication and
food. In fact, one-third of fami-
lies seeking food assistance In
Lanier our country have at least one
working adult in their house-
hold.
One could wonder why we should be con-
cerned about our neighbors if they go hungry.
We know that households with children are
almost twice as likely to experience hunger as
those who do not have children, and that
almost 40 percent of the people who benefit
from the Barnabas Center Food Pantry are
children. We also know that a lack of adequate
nutrition affects children's physical, cognitive
and behavioral development, especially during
the first three years of their lives. If you doubt
this, ask any teacher to pick out the children in
his or her classroom who are not receiving ade-
quate food or nutrition they are often the
ones who come to school tired and lack the
ability to concentrate. Ultimately, this affects
their performance and success in school, a
price we all pay down the road,
On the other end of the age spectrum, we
also know that our impoverished elderly citi-
zens are some of our most vulnerable citizens.
They often have special nutritional needs that,
if not adequately met, affect their health and
longevity Many of these elderly citizens are
often forced to choose between food, medical
care and heat/utilities. As many elderly citizens
who are home-bound cannot access our food
pantry and other community services, we are
working in partnership with the Council on
Aging and the Homeless Coalition of Nassau
County to operate the Soup Train, an initiative
that brings healthy, homemade soup to senior
citizens who qualify for Meals on Wheels, but
who have been on a waiting list for meals due
to a lack of government funding.


rs


More and more frequently, families who
seek food assistance at Barnabas Center are
experiencing a temporary crisis and have
never asked for help before. One recent family
sought help at Barnabas because the father
became ill and was out of work for several
weeks. The father had very limited sick leave
benefits through his employer, which left the
family without an income during this time. The
mother could not work because they have a
special needs child that requires constant at ten-
tion. Neighbors helped the family with food as
much as they could, but they too were on a
tight budget, and there were no relatives who
could help. Barnabas Center was able to pro-
vide a temporary supply of food for the family,
and even assistance with an electric bill so they
would not lose their electricity.
I have found the people of Nassau County to
be caring of their community neighbors and
willing to help in any way that they can when
someone needs assistance. Individuals and
groups can make a difference by volunteering
in a food pantry or meal program; by delivering
food to the elderly or disabled; or by donating
money or food to the organizations that feed
those who are hungry in our community. For
more information on how you can help, contact
Barnabas Center at 261-7000 or barnabascen-
ter@comcast.net
This year, Barnabas Center celebrates its
25th year of service to the residents of Nassau
County. We are proud to serve our community
in many ways not only through our crisis
assistance program and food pantry, but also
through our. medical and dental programs that
serve lower-income and uninsured adults and
our NewTo You resale store. We are grateful to
the individuals, groups, schools, churches,
businesses, grocery and retail stores, city and
county governments and many others who give
of their, time, talents, resources and money
throughout the year to enable Barnabas to
address the critical issues of hunger and pover-
ty in our county.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE

Donors beware -


The IRS recently issued a list of
275,000 nonprofit organizations
whose tax-exempt status has been
revoked because of failure to file a
tax form 990 for three consecutive
years. This represents more than.
10 percent of all nonprofit organi-
zations in the United States. The
list contains 13,906 such organiza-
tions in Florida alone.
At least 36 such organizations
in Nassau County are on this list As
well, several quite-well-known
organizations with headquarters
elsewhere are on the list.
Donors beware. It is. easy to
imagine that this information is
being retained in the IRS computer,
so individual filers who itemize
deductions showing contribu-
tions to any of these agencies might
be at higher risk of audit since these
contributions no longer are
deductible as charitable contribu-
tions.
The following agencies with
Nassau County addresses are listed
by the IRS as having lost their tax-
exempt status:
Civil Air Patrol 8623 Joe Ross
Sr.; Improved Benevolent &
Protective Order of Elks of the
World; G & V Community Services,
Inc.; Employment Services Founda-
tion, Inc.;. Nassau Christian
Academy; Amelia Island Volunteer
Fire & Rescue;- Nassau County
Medical Society; Spina Bifida
Association of Florida; Housing
Assistance Corp. of Nassaq County;
Nassau Friends of Scouting, Inc.;.
Callahan Junior Women's Club;.
Amelia Folk & Heritage Arts;
Nassau County Amateur Radio;
Judy Daycare, Inc.; Caboose Club;.
Chemical People Task Force of ...;
Isle of Ejght Flags Police Athletic ...;
John Mark Ministries; Nassau
Volunteer Dive Rescue Team;
Amelia Island Chorale, Inc.; Florida
Fishing & Boating Buddies;
American Beach Property Owners
Association; Amelia Island Youth
Soccer; Cygnet 2, Inc.; Justin Hess
Scholarship Foundation; Place of
Encouragement, Inc.; Yulee Historic
Council; TKC Outreach, Inc.;
Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 65
...; Amazing Grace Empowerment
Ministry; Access in Motion, Inc.;
International Association of Lions
Clubs (Callahan club); Hilliard
Junior Women's Club; Delta
Kappa Gamma Society (GA
Gamma XI Chapter, Callahan); West
Nassau Genealogical Society; and
the Fellowship of Christian
Firefighters.
These may have been too small
to. require the 990, or failed to file for
some other reason. Even the small-
est organizations should have
received some of the many notices
the IRS has been sending about this
pending action and could have filed
a tax form if they wished to retain
their nonprofit status.
Some of the listed agencies may
have ceased operations, others may
have changed their operations such
that they do not receive charitable
contributions or there may be other
reasons not to be concerned about
being "on the list"
Still, donors should be careful
not to assume that contributions
are deductible if made to agencies
on the list.

run into someone who is glad.to.
see you, and best of all is when they
smile. In this time I have been in the
hospitality industry, and one of my
favorite things about my job is not
only the locals coming to see me
but the tourists that return at dif-
ferent times each year. They come
to enjoy our little patch of paradise.
They share with me their stories,
how they are doing and how things
have been. Most of all, they come to
get away from their everyday real-
ity, to escape to what we have the
privilege of waking up to every day.
I understand the concern over
opening up more rental areas; we all
want to keep our little piece of par-
adise to ourselves, like our own
secret garden. For me, sharing it
so more can see the beauty of not
only what we see but the beauty of
the people that make up our home,
the kindness, the hospitality and
the pride we feel for such a won-
derful home, these are the things I
have had the privilege of knowing
myself.
I do agree that rentals should
not be in every neighborhood, but
to make it hard to find a place to
stay, or limit it to only a few areas,
will likely cause less new friends to
come and enjoy what we have and
will cause less revenue for our local
friends who rely on this income to
support their families. None of us
want taxes, impact fees, etc., but
without our tourism industry it will
be left up to us to fill this financial
gap that will be lost.
Most of us came here on vaca-
tion and enjoyed it so much we
chose to stay and call Fernandina
home. We are proud of home, its
history and what we have to offer to
everyone who digs their toes in the
sand or finds their first shark's tooth
or relives history at Fort Clinch.


No one is asking for rentals
everywhere, but maybe we can
have a compromise so we don't
sound anti-tourism, which for the
last few weeks is what it has sound-
ed like fiom what I've read.
We need to get together so our
community can prosper and grow
stronger. Without this industry we
will fall, and there is no bailout for

Harts Road
railroad crossing
I don't think the county should
trade one railroad crossing for
another one. I called the phone
number for the engineers and was
told that CSX said that this railroad
crossing was one of their most dan-
gerous. Well, I have not heard of
any accidents at this crossing. I was
also told that the other reason they
were closing this crossing was
because CSX told the county in
order to get the crossing at William
Burgess Road they had to close the
Harts Road one. Well, that is not
fair to the taxpayers that live on this
road or the taxpayers that travel
this road.

Historical fact
Today I received the June 8 edi-
tion in which Mr. Robert Weintraub
takes my cousin, Clyde Davis, to
task for challenging Mr. Weintraub's
characterization of the relationship
between Clyde's father, his Uncle
Stuart and Rayonier. I beg to differ
with Mr. Weintraub on his version
of some of the "facts."
A few facts are: (1) our great-
grandfather, William Closs Davis,
was one of the Davis brothers who
bought the 20,000-acre Brown tract;
(2) Ernest and Stuart Davis hap-
pen to be brothers who are grand-
sons of one of the purchasers; (3)
the tract did not include the village
of Crandall although most of the


property in the village was later
acquired from the several owners
by L A. Davis and Brothers; (4) the
Southeast Timber Division of
Rayonier is a separate division from
that which operates the mill; (5) the
manager of the SETD was not the
manager of the mill and did not
oversee its operation.
I would suggest that Mr.
Weintraub do some independent
investigation on his own. Both of
the Reflections books correctly state
that my great-great uncle Isaac
Flood and Mr. Jack Hughes each
opened a general store in Harts
Road (now Yulee) shortly after the
Civil War,
However, in the caption to a pic-
ture provided to him by my father
that was added in the Reflections II
edition, he states that the Hughes
store was the only one in the Yulee
area for half a century. That is incor-.
rect as there was a store operated in
Yulee by members of the Flood fam-
ily from the time that my great-:
great-uncle Ike opened his store
until my father closed his in 1963,
long after the Hughes store closed.:
The two books are rightly entitled
Reflections and not History.
While they contain copies of;
many pictures and historical docu-
ments, they are also a compilation.
of anecdotes that have not all been:
verified.

Ospre3

It's that time of year again.
The 14th Street osprey family
is ready to spread their wings!
If you haven't yet paid atten-
tion to the nesting activity on
the utility pole on North 14th
Street at the bend in the road
near the back gate to Fort
Clinch State Park, now is the
time.
This year the resident
osprey pair that some of us
call Alpha and Baby Girl have
produced another clutch of
chicks, three of them this
time, a.bonanza year! In
March the pair returned to
the pole and started up the
business of housekeeping.
Unlike in some previous
years, this year they could
nest at their own schedule
and not be forced to wait until
the great horned owls fin-
ished their own nesting activi-
ties at the same site. Maybe
because nesting started on
time this year, or maybe for
other reasons like health of.
the parents, fish availability,
etc., this year's production
exceeded their usual clutch of

WAYS

two off- *
spring. A
good year it
was.
If you go
over to7
watch the
ospreys,
though, be
careful. I
was first
alerted to
the problem
by musician
Phil Maphe
(of the duo
the Macys),


who regularly rides his bicy-
cle down 14th Street. Phil is
often the first person to
report to me "problems" on
that stretch of 14th Street.
This year, for instance, a road-
killed deer provided a terrible
odiferous ambiance to Phil's
bike ride, until it was report-
ed and removed by county
workers. Phil also tells me
about other wildlife he sees
along his route.
* But this year he reported
another observation to me. In


fact, his observation was the
first to alert me to the osprey
fledgling's new growth spurt.
The road, it seems, beneath
the osprey nest is covered
with white. And you can
guess what it is. When the
ospreys are mere chicks, the
parents take care of house-
keeping, tossing their byprod-
ucts off into the brush. But
when the babies mature, it's
bombs away! Ken Vendola,
our photographer for this col-
umn, experienced this phe-
nomena first-hand. As he was
photographing the activity at
the nest, one of the young
ospreys ruffled its feathers,
aimed its back end over the
edge of the nest and shot out
a stream of white fluid. Time
to duck!
It's not going to be long
before the young ospreys
leave the nest for good. But in
the next few weeks we can
expect to see them flying
around the area, following
their parents' chirps, trying
out their wings and resting on
the nearby snags. Eventually


they will also need to hone
their fishing skills, to provide
for themselves. Often all this
activity happens in and
around the nest platform, a
fun show to watch as all our
"polewatchers" can attest.
In recent years the num-
ber of reported osprey in our
area has been increasing.
There is a second osprey nest
located at the edge of the
marsh visible from the 14th
Street bridge if you look
towards the woods of Fort
Clinch. Although this nest is
harder to see even with
binoculars -June and George
Jones report that there are at
least two young there too.
Further south on the
island, according to Carl
Watson, a single osprey has
been building and refurbish-
ing a nest on a lighting struc-
ture behind Fernandina
Beach High School. Although
Carl is an experienced natu-
ralist, even he is amazed at
the strong nesting instinct
this demonstrates when no
mate or babies are in the mix.

,IN VINUULA/POUKtI HE NEWS-I.EADiER
A 14th Street osprey family portrait


Off the island, ospreys are
nesting too. Carl and Lala
Fleckhammer in Flora Parke
have sent photos of an osprey
nest firmly situated on a sign
for the development and this
has become an attraction for
nature watchers in the area.
Next time you visit Home
Depot, you can also find a
busy osprey nest in the marsh
between the blocks of stores.
Look up on cell towers, and
there are other nests visible
in our area too.
I'm wondering what is


going to happen next in our
world of ospreys. At some
point many of these local off-
spring will fly away, but
return again in future breed-
ing seasons, looking for suit-
able perches of their own. An
overpopulation of ospreys,
now that's a problem we can
live with! Wonders never
cease in this little world we
share with wildlife in the para-
dise we all call home.

This was written by Ryan Smith
of the News-Leader from oral and
written reports by the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office and the city of
Fernandina Beach Police Depart-
ment and other agencies. Arrest
indicates suspicion of a crime, not
guilt.

Burglary
Philly Boyz restaurant was
allegedly burglarized Friday,
according to the Fernandina Beach
Police Department.
Police were dispatched to the
restaurant, located at 710 Centre
St., about 3 a.m. Friday A Philly
Boyz employee told the respond-
ing officers that two men and a
woman had entered the restaurant
earlier in the evening and ordered
one cheeseburger. The employee
said the group took the food to the
outdoor patio and began eating,
and he went into the kitchen to
clean. A few moments later, he saw
the female and one of the males
enter the restaurant. The female
went into the restroom, and the
employee turned his attention to
his work. He told police that he
heard a loud noise a few moments
later and looked up to see all three
suspects running out the door. The
employee opened the cash register
and discovered that nearly all the
money in it had been taken..
Police also spoke with Philly
Boyz owner James Kerrigan who
told police about $245 was taken
from the cash register. He describ-
ed the suspects as a white female
in her early 20s with brunette hair,
wearing a blue skirt, black and
white shirt and black shoes; a
Tean-shaven black male about 21
years old, short and stocky, wear-
ing blue or black pants; and a black
male with a scruffy beard, about 25
years old, also short and stocky,
wearing a red- Chicago Cubs hat,
sagging jeans and a white T-shirt.
Carfire
A Yulee man and two juveniles


were arrested after allegedly set-
ting fire to a car Sunday. One of the
juveniles has also been charged
with grand theft.
Christopher Wayne Johnson Jr.,
18, 96083 Durden Road, was
charged with arson. Also charged
with arson were two 16-year-old
males, one of whom was also
charged with grand theft auto.
On Sunday, Nassau County
Sheriff's deputies responded to a
criminal mischief complaint in the
area of Police Lodge Road in Yulee.
While en route, a deputy saw a
dark-colored Buick allegedly leav-
ing the area at a high rate of speed.
He pulled the vehicle over and
found the driver to be Christopher
Johnson. The minors were alleged-
ly passengers of the vehicle.
According to the report,
Johnson and the minors told the
deputy that they were leaving the
area to get away from a car that
was on lire. The deputy detained all
three for further investigation.
Sheriff's deputies found there
was a vehicle fire on Police Lodge
Road. The vehicle in question, a
2003 Dodge Durango, was in a
ditch at the end of the road. Nassau
County firefighters responded to
the scene and extinguished the
fire, according to the police report.
The Durango was allegedly reg-
istered to the mother of one of the
minors in the car. When contacted
by deputies, she allegedly stated
that neither her son nor the vehi-
cle were at her residence. She also
allegedly told deputies that her son
did not have permission to take
the vehicle because he.did not
have a driver's license.
Two other witnesses told
deputies that they had received a
call to help pull a vehicle out of a
ditch. They claimed that when they
arrived at Police Lodge Road and
hooked chains up to the Durango,
one of the minors had struck the
window of their vehicle with a base-
ball bat.
Lighters were allegedly found
in the pockets of Johnson and one
of the minors. Another was alleged-
ly found on the floor of the Buick
where the other minor had been
sitting.


Johnson and the two minors
were arrested and booked into the
Nassau County Jail.
Break-in
A Fernandina Beach medical
supply company was burglarized
sometime between June 3 and
June 6, according to Fernandina
'Beach Police.
At about 6 a.m. June 6, officers
were dispatched to Tacy Medical,
Inc., 2386 Shannon Road. Upon
arrival at the business, they were
met by the warehouse manager,
who said that sometime during the
weekend someone had entered
the building and damaged several
pieces of electronic equipment. He
also said the door had been
unlocked and partially opened
when he arrived. Police observed
several gouges on the doorframe.
Several pieces of computer and,
telephone equipment had been
thrown on the floor. The ware-.
house manager said no items
appeared to be missing, but the
damage done in the burglary was
crippling to Tacy's daily business
operations.
The case is pending.

Yulee man



carjacked,




kidnapped'

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader

A Yulee man told police he was carjacked, kid-
napped and forced to drive his attackers to sever-
al locations Saturday.
Nassau County Sheriff's deputies were dis-
patched to Jean Road Saturday night in reference
to the carjacking. Upon arrival they met the alleged
victim, who said that he had driven to the Hess
Express gas station at 3100 S. Eighth St., about 9
p.m. He said that upon his arrival at the gas station,
a white female approached his car and asked for a
ride.
According to the victim, when he told the woman
that he could not give her a ride, a white male
approached the car, opened his jacket to reveal a
gun and told the victim that he would give them a
ride "or else."
The suspects allegedly got into the car, took
the victim's cell phone and instructed him to drive
them to the Pine Forest Motel, 850928 US 17. At the
motel, the suspects allegedly forced the victim to
park in front of the motel office while the female sus-
pect went to one of the rooms, knocked on the
door and entered. She allegedly returned a short
time later carrying a black pillowcase.

PHOTO COURTESY OFTHE SOUTHERN KINGFISH ASSOCIATION
Pictured with'their 41.55-pound king mackerel are Al Morris, far left, Matthew Farlow, far right, and Kenny and
Cindy Crawford. "Team Crawfish," based out ofYulee, took first-place kingfish in both the St. Augustine Kingfish
400 and the Jacksonville Kingfish Rodeo this past weekend-.


TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Phil Hughes showcases his three-pound sea trout he
landed recently while fishing at-the ocean side of the St.
Marys north jetty rocks.


One weekend, two kingfish titles for team


S several excellent kingfish
teams have come close but
have yet to win a competitive
kingfish tournament. Fishing
tournaments are much like golf tour-
naments you can have all the
needed skills but there is no guaran-
tee you are going to win.
Going into the weekend, Yulee's
Kenny Crawford had won seven
competitive Southern Kingfish
Association king mackerel events.
After all of the kingfish were
weighed in for the St Augustine
King Buster and the Jacksonville
Fishing Rodeo, special rules made
"Team Crawfish" a double winner
and his legendary fishing team has
now won nine kingfish tournaments.
Both the Jacksonville Fishing
Rodeo and the St. Augustine
Kingfish Tournament staff agreed to
allow area teams to weigh their king-
fish in both events. The special rule
enabled fishing teams to fish both


events after paying
tournament entry
fees for both popu-
lar fishing events.
"After we
weighed our 41.55-
pound king mack-'
erel in the St.
Augustine Kingfish
400 Tournament,
OUTDOORS we officially
....-* weighed our
Teryacoss largest day's king-'
fish in the
Jacksonville Fishing Rodeo as well,"
Crawford said. "Let's put it this way,
we caught our big kingfish on the
right weekend."
Crawford was fishing with wife
Cindy, son Matthew Farlow and Al
Morris. 'Team Crawfish" also won
the St. Augustine King Buster 400 in
2009.
The Jacksonville Fishing Rodeo
took place from Metropolitan Park,


where fishermen competed for 17
species of both fresh and saltwater
fish.
The big prize included a blind
drawing for a brand new 21-foot
Contender center console fishing
boat powered by Mercury and
loaded on a "Loadmaster" boat trail-
er. Each contestant who weighed in
an eligible fish received a blind
drawing ticket for the $40,000 'boat
package.
Some of the more notable catch-
es included Sam Sica's 32.33-pound
barracuda, Terry Smith's 46.45-
pound grouper, Chris Kellem's 6.69-
pound Sea trout, Gary Stickney's
seven-pound freshwater bass, Gary
Spivey's 7.5-pound sheepshead and
Ron Keiser's 6.85-pound flounder.
Yet another big tournament.that
took place this past weekend includ-
ed the Jacksonville HT-3 Redfish
Tour. Mark Sepe.and David Crews
emerged as the top team with a


three-day aggregate weight of 30.59
pounds for the $25,000 top prize.
Eric Rue and Teriy Kneedler
were in the lead after day two of the
three-day event when they unfortu-
nately found out they had needed a
Georgia, non-resident saltwater fish-
'ing license when fishing on the
Georgia side of the St. Marys inlet.
Tournament rules require all con-
testants to have saltwater fishing
licenses for the state waters they are
targeting.
The St. Marys north jetty rocks
are a hot spot for redfish and sea
trout during the spring and summer
fishing seasons. One of the best fish-
ing tactics includes fishing close to
the jetty rocks with a 1/8- to 1/4-
ounce led head jig rigged with a
Berkley Gulp shrimp. The jig and
'fish-scented shrimp are fished slow-
ly right next to huge rocks, where
strong tidal currents gather both
bait fish and game fish.


. The Florida Wildlife Commission
regulations allow fishermen to keep
redfish measuring up to 27 inches
while the top side of the Georgia
saltwater regulations for redfish is
only 23 inches.
In recent fishing season tourna-
ments, redfishermen have been key-
ing onto the St. Marys jetty rocks,
where redfish tend to weigh more as
they have an abundance of forage
food to feed.
The only drawback for jetty red
fishing is high winds. When the
winds are blowing more then 10
knots, strong tides and winds can
make jetty fishing almost impossible.
for small redfish boats.
Most area bait shops are now car-
rying live "brown" shrimp as the
shrimp season in the rivers opened
June 1. Be sure to have on board
large live bait hooks.as the live
shrimp are running extra large. It
helps to have a fishing license too.

Congressional Country Club The United States Open is the second

7,574 yards, Par 71 The first U.S. Open Championship was
held in 1895 at the Newport Golf and
Defending: Graeme McDowell Country Club in Newport, R.I. Four
Winning Score: Even par men, Willie Anderson, Bobby Jones,
Winning Share: $1,350,000 Ben Hogan and Jack Nicklaus have
won four U.S. Opens. Winning the U.S. Open gives a golfer several
privileges that make his career much more secure. U.S. Open champions
are automatically invited to play in the other three majors for the next five
years, as well as the near-major Players Championship, and they are
exempt from qualifying for the U.S. Open itself for ten years.

.. Harrison Frazar captured his
i first victory in 354 starts on
y the PGA Tour last week.
Frazar, who began last
week's St. Jude Classic 583rd in the
Official World Golf Ranking, beat
Robert Karlsson in a playoff on the
third extra hole at the TPC
Southwind in Memphis. Frazar made
par on the final hole for the victory. "I
never thought it would happen, to be
honest with you," said Frazar.


Tiger. Woods' caddie, Steve
Williams will work for Australian
Adam Scott this week at the U.S.
\ Open. Steve made the trip to
America from New Zealand to help Tiger prepare
. for the tournament, but Woods pulled out of the
U.S. Open due to a left leg injury. Williams decid-
ed to stay in the U.S. and will caddie for Scott.
Scott recently split with veteran caddie Tony
Navarro.. Although Woods' agent stated, that it
was just a temporary job for Williams and that he
got the green, light from Woods first, it remains
unknown how long Woods will be out or how long
Williams is going to work for the Australian. Scott
hired Phil Williams, Steve's younger brother, to
be his caddie ten years ago.


s one that is not used very often, but can be
shot is primarily used when trying to make a
nker, right along the edge between the grass


and the sand. When the ball is on the back edge of the bunker, you can not
use a normal backswing because you will hit the lip of the bunker. To avoid
1 hitting the back lip of the bunker, you must pick the club up vertically like an
axe and then bring it back to the ball on the same line. As the club hits the sand around
*two inches behind the ball, you need to eject your left arm to allow the cut to cut right
underneath the ball. This will allow the ball to sail out easily and toward the target.

who can catch creatures from
the sea with her bare hands.

how they live. She grew up on
a beach at the Jersey shore.
Andrea Margiotta is quick to
tell you that her Jersey shore
is quite different from the one
creating so much hoopla on
TV. Margiotta is the on-board
marine biologist working with
Amelia River Cruises to offer
daily eco tours of the waters
off Amelia Island.
Originallyfrom
Morristown, N.J., Margiotta
grew up spending her sum-
mers at the Jersey shore
where her passion for,the
marine environment began.
She graduated from the
University of New Hampshire
with a degree in marine and
freshwater biology and
Spanish. Since graduation,
Andrea has been teaching

marine sci-
ence and
coastal ecol-
ogy in the
Florida Keys
and the bar-
rier islands
of Georgia.
When not
teaching,
Andrea
loves spend-
ing time
scuba diving
anywhere
from the
coasts of
Central


America all the way up to the
frigid waters of New England.
She is also an avid hiker and
boater
"We are thrilled to take
advantage of Amelia Island's
diversity of marine creatures
to teach kids and adults about
our amazing environment,"
Margiotta shares.


The tour is a dream come
true for Kevin McCarthy and
his wife, Cecilia. The couple
has a passion for the waters
that surround Amelia Island.
The tour is hands-on. Guests
actually help operate an Otter
Trawl shrimp net. Pulling in
the net, the "catch" is put into
an onboard aquarium. Each
creature is identified and
examined before being
returned to the water. So
what kind of creatures does
the net capture?
"Atlantic brief squid, floun-
ders, spot, weakfish, shrimp,
sea grapes, sea whip, sea
robins, blue crabs, stone
crabs, southern kingfish, mul-
lets, Atlantic croakers, pom-
pano, cannonball jellyfish, sil-
versides ... you name it we got
it!" says Margiotta with a big
grin on her face.
A stop at Tiger Island
allows for the exploration of
this uninhabited island.


SUBMITTED

River Cruises' new eco-tour.


Again; a variety of finds are
identified. The tour travels
past oyster beds, mud flats
and acres of marsh grasg.
More than likely the morning
explorers come upon dol-


phins and manatees.
Birds abound! Egrets,
herons, brilliant pink roseate
spoonbills, ospreys and
eagles.
If you go out with


Margiotta don't forget your
trash bag. Committed to
keeping our environment
trash free, she encourages
those going on her learning
tours to pick up what was not
meant to be there and "to
leave the island better than
we found it" Each day, a stop
at Tiger Island results in trash
bags of waste that humans
have thoughtlessly tossed
into the ocean or river only to
wash up and threaten a fragile
ecosystem.
The tours leave the
Fernandina Harbor Marina at
9 a.m. Monday through
Friday and return at noon.

Helping Cambodia
Rotarian and National Director of Sustainable Cambodia Sorn
Soknay recently visited the Fernandina Beach Rotary Club and
President Trip Clark, right, and the Rotary Club of Amelia Island
Sunrise and President Art Shuster, left.
Soknay shared the story of his life in Cambodia during the
Khmer Rouge's reign of terror. He was taken from his parents at
age six and forced to fight for the Khmer Rouge. After escaping to
Thailand at 13, Soknay spent years in an orphanage where he
learned to read and write and became so proficient in English
that he later worked for the U.N. as a translator.
. In 2006 he began to work with Rotarians from Gainesville on
projects focused on making life better for Cambodians. This led
him to found the first Rotary Club in rural Cambodia. He has
since spearheaded the founding of five more clubs throughout
the country.
Soknay now acts as national director of Sustainable Cambodia,
the primary international project of a group of Rotary Clubs,
including Gainesville, Lake Butler and Keystone Heights. Its
goals are to provide clean drinking water, education and better
nutrition to Cambodians still recovering from the ravages of war.
The organization hopes to empower rural Cambodian families to
effect lasting change, community by community.
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club meets Wednesdays from
noon to 1 p.m. at the Days Inn, 2707 Sadler Road. Visit

Amelia I

Twenty-one representatives
of Amelia Baptist Church
descended upon Port-au-
Prince, Haiti, on May 26. Their
mission: to bring servant
hearts to people in need. All
returned from the trip changed
people.
This mission had two
emphases, first to work at the
Christian Light Ministries
school and orphanage in one of
the most desperate areas of
Port-au-Prince. The school,
founded in 2002, provides
Christian education to impov-
erished Haitian children.
Teaching is in three lan-
guages: Creole, French, and
English. The children think in
Creole; French is the legal lan-
guage of Haiti; English gives
them an enormous advantage.
The goal of the school is to
raise up Christian leaders while
providing a loving, nurturing,
healthy environment in which
children may grow. Thirty
orphans live at the school.
There are 210 students attend-
ing the highly academic and
spiritually nourishing school,
receiving two meals daily.
The mission team provided
teaching at the school for pas-
tors and continuing education
for the teachers as well .as
much needed computer assis-
tance, records organization and
labor for construction projects.
Sherry Fausey formerly of
Jacksonville and founder of the
school, encouraged by her vis-
itors, said, "They had medical
clinics, pastors' classes, miet
with teachers and did a lot of
fixin' and carpentry. They were
great!" Fausey, a retired
teacher, says she was directed
by God to create this orphan-
age and school, having wit-
nessed the enormous needs of
the children.
Upon her second trip to
Haiti, Pam Helton said,
"Although most people do not
want to return to Haiti due to
the difficult conditions, I felt
compelled to return and take
some special friends to help
Sherry who is living out the
passage from Matthew that
reads, 'for I was hungry and
you gave me food, I was thirsty

and you gave me something to
drink, I was a stranger and you
took me in...'"
The team's second empha-
sis was to provide medical care
to more than 500 adults and
children. Clinics were con-
ducted at Coram Deo and at
L'eglise Baptiste de Solidarity.
The need of the people of


Port-au-Prince is grave. Many
suffer from malnutrition and
dehydration due to lack of ade-
qudte food and safe drinking
water. Thousands are some-
what permanently living in
tents. Many have skin, dental
and multiple medical issues.
Many have diabetes or high
blood pressure or infections.

pastors.


God has done in our lives, we
are able to see just how much
we have to share. Where there
is a need, let us continue to
serve, both in Haiti and at
h6me," says Kathy Devlin.
On June 6, five days after
their return, the team learned
of devastating torrential rains
that have made Fausey's mis-
sion and that of short-term
workers in Port-au-Prince even
more vital.
Striving to be ambassadors
for Christ, this team returned
with a renewed vision of the
overwhelming, need of those
who struggle daily just to meet
basic needs. They also have a
greater appreciation for their
own circumstances.
The public is invited to an
informational presentation to
be given at Amelia Baptist
Church on June 20 at 6 p.m.
The church is located at the
roundabout at 961167
Buccaneer Trail and Fletcher
Avenue.

the first guitarist ever to win
