ARREST IN CITY SHOOTING, 101



County split on



Jacobs' contract


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
is split on whether to renew lobbyist
Buddy Jacobs' contract in the next fis-
cal year, with two commissioners in
favor of retaining the Fernandina
'Beach attorney at a decreased salary
and the rest saying they would reserve
judgment until speaking with him.
Jacobs was hired in 2008 to act as a
national lobbyist for both Fernandina
Beach and Nassau County, his
$150,000-per-year salary split evenly
between the two. Jacobs' hiring gen-
erated controversy, with some criti-
cizing both the city and county com-
missions for not accepting competitive
bids on his contract.
At a June 6 budget meeting,
Commissioner Barry Holloway sug-
gested suspending Jacobs' contract for
one year "because there's no money


available in
:W,.i\dhI '. AF a
meeting June 13,
however, Holloway
said'hat he had sub-
sequently learned
there would be fed-
eral dollars available
next year despite
Jacobs tough economic
times.
"There are ongo-
ing projects going on in Washington as
we speak, and I think cutting that (lob-
bying services) right fow would be a
grave mistake, based on subsequent
phone calls I've gotten. My recom-
mendation would be to put Mr. Jacobs
back in with a 10 percent cut like every-
one else, which would take him to
$67,500, I think."

City pushes for



island fire service


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
The city of Fernandina Beach
should expand fire/rescue services
to include all of Amelia Island -h ugh.h
a contractual agreement with the coun-
ty, according to city Fire Chief Dan
Hanes.
Hanes presented his opinion dur-
ing a special meeting with tiry"com-
missioners June 14, along with com-
mentary on a recent assessment of
Nassau County Fire/Rescue.
His ulli niat recommendation was
to have city fire/rescue personnel
operate County Fire Station 20 at the
south end of the island, with five city
workers replacing seven county work-
ers. He estimated the annual person-
nel and operating expenses to staff
that lilli.. would be $1.27 million.
The county, he said, woukl save about
$500,000 a year in decreased person-
nel costs.
City fire/rescue services, Hanes
said, already provide first response
services to a large unincorporated area
located on the island: A mutual aid
agreement between the city and coun-


ty was based on-a
certain level of serv-
ice, but Hanes said
he was concerned
about proposed cuts
by county officials.
Hanes also said a
recent county
fire/r-escue ,ssess-
Hanes ment by System
Planning Corp. of
Xi ,-inLi gave him
cause for concern about the county's
dispatch system and fire preven-
tion/education.
Hanes said it was important that
the city keep control of its fire depart-
ment rather than have the county take
over services for the entire area,
because county emergency services
have too many problems that have not
been addressed.
One of those problems is that the
computer-aided dispatch service takes
twice as long as it should because of
staffing issues and "user-unfriendly"
software, Hanes said. An additional
concern, he said, is that the city is

The owners of a proposed water
slide business have terminated a lease
for property at Main Beach where a
slide was to be built.
According to called Slippery When
Wet business owners William A.
Doyle, Nick Gillette and Clayton
Buchanan, the reason for terminating
the lease was the inability to get financ-
ing for the project, which was esti-
mated to cost about $500,000.
"All efforts to finance the water
park have failed," the group wrote in
a May 31 letter to City Manager
Michael Czymbor, "and no financing
options appear to be reasonably avail-
able moving forward."


City commissioners agreed to lease
the 10,000-square-foot parcel at Main
Beach in December 2007 at $100 a
year plus all related expenses includ-
ing property taxes.
The project was delayed in 2008
due to the original lender backing out
of the deal. ,.lipp q I) When Wet at that
time said it would put up its own
money to open a concession stand at
the site as a .. -d filli1 gesture, with a
plan to open the water park in April
2010.
The group ( ,1,'i iill had plans to
build a two-flume water slide, conces-
sion stand and restrooms at the site.
The city would have owned all
improvements and assets of the water
park after 20 years.

she said. "... There's not only

However, Johnson said, "I'd

"It doesn't get any more

"Seconds matter; every tick of

an old CAD system in need of

out to the rescuers."
One way to solve that prob-

such as Jacksonville's.
"If everyone could just drop
the barriers, we could set that

Hanes.
The county also has gaps in
its fire prevention and educa-

"NCFR is ineffective and
inefficient from a management
standpoint," Hanes said, as well
as understaffed, with sporadic
fire prevention inspections and
poor record-keeping practices.

A place for homeless women


ANGLIA DAUGI ITRY
News Leader


Tit nation's financial crash
has had an effect on all levels
of society, but especially those
who are already at the bottom
rungs of the socioeconomic
ladder.
A local community out-
reach group called Women of
Power, founded by local author
and community volunteer
LaVerne Mitchell, has
branched out into a new pro-
gram to help some of those
who are the most vulnerable.
Called Cedar Haven
Transitional House, the cozy
residence at 900 Cedar St. is a
place where homeless women
can stay for up to six months as
they .learn to once. again
become successful and pro-
ductive.
Mitchell says there is a
growing population of dis-
placed older women between
the ages of 49 and 69, who need
such services. Many of these
women, she says, are child-
less,.divorced and isolated, and
some have a history of sub-
stance abuse. Today's harsh
economy makes it even hard-
er for such women.
Mitchell's Women of Power
outreach began as a women's
ministry that offers free
empowerment seminars, as
well as Bible and life-purpose
studies. Mitchell eventually
hopes to add financial literacy
classes, first-homebuyers ediu-
cation, life skills and resume
writing classes for disadvan-
taged women.
Mitchell found the house
on Cedar Street while check-
ing out leads for office space.
She learned'that a man in

LaVerne Mitchell, founder of community outreach
group Women of Power, speaks at an open house at
Cedar Haven Transitional House.


Tallahassee owned a property
on Cedar Street,-and that he
wanted the property to be used
for some sort of ministry.
Eventually, the board of direc-
tors of WOP. and the
Tallahassee man agreed on a
lease.
The house's original owner
was the Lewis Fashion family,
she says. Fashion was a local
radio host whose show
"Spiritual Time," broadcast
from the WHOG studio on
Dade Street, was popular from
the 1950s through the 1990s.
"The timing of all of this

Haven officially opened on
March 11.
There are now five women
living in the house, which is
the maximum allowed by the
Fair Housing Act, according
to Mitchell.

Baker, who is on the board of
directors, are running day-to-
day operations. Eventually, she
said, she hopes to have paid
staff members' take over the
duties.
"Permanent housing is cru-
cial to the transformation and
stability of the residents,"
Mitchell says. "Should 50
women in five years return in
our community as productive,
viable citizens as a result of a
Cedar Haven experience, our
community will have increased
its worth."
Cedar Haven works in con-
-junction with the Coalition for
the Homeless of Nassau
County, the Fernandina Beach
Church of Christ's Cold Night .
Shelter, the Florida Commu-
nity Prevention Center and
other community organiza-
tions. Cedar Haven runs on
personal and business contri-
butions and fundraisers,
Mitchell said.
The United Memorial
Methodist Church, the Jour-
ney Church, The .Home Depot
and other organizations arid
businesses have made contri-
butions to Cedar Haven,
Mitchell said. Items that are
still needed for the house
include small cooking pots, a
DVD player, a music system,
wall pictures/inspirational
plaques, toiletries, dish and
laundry detergent, bottled
water, twin-bed linens, a laser
printer and a locking filing cab-
inet.
Volunteers are also needed
to serve as counselors, instruc-
tors and various other func-
tions, For more information,

Jobless rate 29%


for Florida teens


Florida News Connection
TALLAHASSEE Florida
has the nation's 10th-highest
teen unemployment rate*at
nearly 29 percent, accordingoto
figures from the Employment
Policies Institute.
Michael Saltsman, a
research fellow at the institute,
has been crunching the num-
bers.
"I think what we see is, as
costs have continued to rise, a
lot of the jobs that teens used
to fill in Florida and elsewhere
have been automated. They've
gone away.
Teens who typically work
as lifeguards or camp coun-
selors may face higher hur-
dles to land a job, according to
the Florida Department of
Labor. The state's cities
and parks departments gen-
erally have fewer resources to


hire in this era of state budget
cuts.
When there are no jobs for
teens, Saltsman says, they're
also missing out on learning
other valuable skills not nec-
essarily taught in the class-
room. If state policymakers
don't address the growing
labor crisis for young work-
ers, Florida labor leaders say,
teen summer jobs could van-
ish as already is happening
elsewhere.
"McDonald's in Europe is
sort of replacing 7,000 employ-
ees, essentially, with 7,000
touch-screens so, instead of
placing your order with a per-
son, you place your order on a
touch-screen."
Nationally, Labor Depart-
ment figures show the unem-
ployment rate stands at 24.2
percent for all teens and 40.7
percent for black teens.

IN BRIEF


'Last Chef Standing
In an electric atmosphere
that rivals an overtime cham-
pionship game,' three finalists
competed for bragging rights
for best chef in Jacksonville.
The three finalists were
Micah Windham of Sawgrass
Country Club, Tony Corrente
of The Pier Restaurant and
Niko Anagnostou of Salt, at
The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia
Island.
Each chef had one hour to
prepare a three-course meal
while their fans led supportive
cheers. Two courses had to
include the secret ingredients
of the night: alligator and
cow's head. "The ingredients
didn't throw me off as much
as coming up with a plan to
cook three-courses in 50 min-
utes, plate and present the
meal," said Chef Niko.
Anagnostou presented the
judges with saut6ed medal-
lions of gator tail with Zucchini
strips, heirloom tomatoes and
parmesan cheese served with
twice-baked potatoes; marihat-
ed medallions of flash smoked
beef tongue served with
spinach, orzo and feta cheese,
and peach and shallot tarte
tatin. Chef Niko edged out the
competition for the champi-
onship title.
All proceeds from the


event held at Latitude 30 go to
local charities. For more infor-
mation on "The Battle of Last

Physician pilots meet
Physician pilots holding
their annual meeting on
Amelia Island will hear U.S.
Secretary of the Department
of Transportation Raymond
"Ray" LaHood address mem-
bership as the meeting
keynote speaker on July 7.
Felix Tormes, M.D., presi-
dent of the Flying Physicians
Association, said that
LaHood's&presentation at the
57th annual meeting will be
"an excellent opportunity for
the physician pilots to air their
concerns on general aviation
issues facing them and their
communities in the coming
months." Many FPA members
use their aircraft to serve
smaller communities separat-
ed by long distances in states
like Texas arid Colorado.
LaHood has been involved
with many issues affecting
such pilots including air traffic
control, regional and local air-
port funding, and user taxes.
LaHood is one of two Repub-
licans serving in President -
Barack Obama's Cabinet. He
was a seven-term congress-
man from Illinois prior to
being named Secretary of
Transportation.
The Flying Physicians
Association was organized in
1955 and combines the dual
passions for medicine and avi-
ation of its members.

HEAITHERA. PERRY
News-Leader
In 1919, John T. Ferreira
opened a small real estate
and insurance agency in
Fernandina Beach. The fami-
ly-owned business grev with
the community under the
leadership of the founder's
son, Robert P Ferreira, and
grandson, Bobby Ferreira.
In 1984, Bobby Ferreira
and M.C. (Cerqe) Harden,
owner of Harden and
Associates, purchased the
company from Robert P
Ferreira. The two companies
merged in 2009 and Ferreira
Insurance became a division
of Harden.
The company moved its
insurance division to Yulee in
April 2010. The office's cen-
tral location allows staff to "
serve all residents and busi-
nesses within the county.
"We remain focused on
helping our clients to make
informed decisions about
insurance risk management,"
says Shaun Woleshin, vice
president at John T. Ferreira
Insurance.

play within
the compa-
ny; the firm's process for

and stewardship of the
human and financial
resources of its clients, the
firm and the community.
With a nationwide client
base, John T. Ferreira offers
commercial and personal
insurance, risk management,
employee benefits and finan-
cial services.
"In environments of
uncertainty, John T. Ferreira
Insurance provides certainty
by gaining insight and apply-
ing knowledge with a disci-
plined process that assists
clients in making informed,
quality decisions," said
Simpson.
"Our firm supports

make a career out of it," said
Steven Foster, owner of
Seascape Lawn and Home
Repair.
When Foster was growing
up in Yulee, he paid attention
when his dad James was
teaching him how to make
small repairs around the
home and take care of the
yard.
His late grandfather, also
named James, gave Steven
careful instruction in the fine
art of fixing things.
"Granddad had a real
knack for this sort of thing
and I learned as I went
along."
After working various
jobs at restaurants, a golf
course and as an assistant
manager at a convenience
store, which he still does part-
time, Foster decided the time
was right.to start his own
business.
"The area is growing up so
fast so I thought it would be a
good idea to start a lawn and
home repair business. I love
building stuff and working,
with my hands."

Why? The

I love to walk along the main road at Fort
Clinch. I've written much about my affinity for
the park, its multi-dimensional offerings for
solitude, activity and scenery, and I try to walk
about four miles there at least four or five
times a week. Once in a while, particularly dur-
ing the summer, the pre-walk weather is ques-
tionable dark skies in the west, hot, humid,
soupy atmosphere, occasional rumblings of
thunder accompanied by dim bursts of light-
ning. Distant, I think as I'm lacing my shoes
and looking for my favorite Boston Red Sox
cap; far off and moving away.
Kasey, however, armed with her seemingly
infallible intuition, says, "Don't go, it's going to
rain; wait awhile." "Nah, I think it's moving
away, I'll be OK." I go, it rains, it thunders and
lightning seems to flash at about 50,000 times
per minute, surely. I finally make it home,
soaked through, and Kasey, mercifully, just
gets me a towel and says nothing. '
Why the anecdote? Well, let's do a little sub-
stitution. Let's say that in the story, I am the
city commission, Kasey represents the taxpay-
ers of Fernandina Beach and the questionable
pre-walk atmospheric conditions represents
the current economy and city financial condi-
tion. Setting and dialogue:
Pre-walk atmospheric conditions (current
economy/city's financial condition): leading
indicators iffy, volatile; possibility of a "double-
dip" recession, stagnant or falling city rev-
enues; revenues currently insufficient to bal-
ance the budget.
Ron (city commission): "You know, several
city projects, things I'd really like to do, have
kind of just sat there, nothing's happened. I
think I'm going to borrow about $5 to $7 mil-
lion to get these things done."
Kasey (city taxpayers): "Do you think this
is a good time to accumulate more debt? What
are these things you'd like to do, anyway;
shouldn't we talk about them? $5 to $7 million,
how are we going to pay it back?"
Ron (commission): "Are you kidding, this is

'shouldn't we talk about

and figures and ask a ton of
questions, most confusing,
DEBATE most negative; the 'how are
we going to pay this back'
AND question is a good example.

Ron Sapp fingers, click my heels
together three times and say,
There's nothing like money, there's nothing
like money,' over and over again until millions
of dollars appear. If that doesn't work I'll raise
your taxes, fees and anything else I can get my
hands on."
Kasey (taxpayers): "But haven't the last two
budgets been balanced with non-recurring rev-
enue? I mean, haven't you spent about $1.5 mil-
lion of our savings (reserves) to balance the
budget? And, what about that one-time back-tax
payment of $1.2 million from Smurfit-Stone,
that's not going to happen again. Bottom line -
if you haven't had enough revenue to balance
the last two budgets, and all indicators say that
current revenue will be about the same, or less,
where are you going to get the money to pay
back $5 to $7 million of new debt?"
Ron (commission): "See, here we go, this is
exactly why I wanted to find a way to borrow
the money without having to answer these stu-k
pid questions. Maybe you can understand this:
yes, recently I've spent more money than I've
taken in, and yes, I've had to spend your sav-
ings and non-recurring dollars to balance the
budget. But things are going to get better, and
if they don't, well, remember the finger-cross-
ing and heel-clicking thing, and if that doesn't
work remember the raising your taxes thing,


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Economy
We are astounded that our
Fernandina City Commission
Council would even consider such a
hardship on residents proposing
millions for new projects in this
oppressing era in a seemingly refrac-
tory economy. And minus a refer-
"endum ("City may borrow without
voters' OK," June 17). Caution!
Gary and Bonnie Bong
Fernandina Beach

'Extravagandes
To the city commissioners, as a
citizen of Fernandina Beach, I would
like to express my extreme opposi-
tion to.the proposed revenue bound
discussed in the. (June \1 ) NA',i,-
Leader. In light of the current eco-
nomic difficulties that the majority of
the constituents that you serve are
experiencing, it is incomprehensi-
ble that you are considering forg-
ing ahead with projects that many
consider unnecessary and too cost-
ly at this time. I am certain that res-
idents who are unable to pay utility
bills at the current rates are not
enthused about the prospects of see-
ing additional taxes imposed in
order to fund plans that only a few
seem to think are so important to
this city. Please reflect on the current
conditions of this city, the numbers
of citizens losing jobs, homes, etc.,
and be more realistic in distin-
guishing needs from extravagan-
cies.
Fred McNeal
Fernandina Beach

Fasttimes
Regarding the city borrowing
without taxpayer approval, Mayor
Susan Steger stated, "They'll (the
tax payers) think we are pulling a
fast one" ("City may borrow without
voters' OK," June 17). She's
absolutely right because the com-
mission is pulling a fast one. It is
not, however, obtaining the loan,
but a sneaky way of ramming the
acquisition of the old post office
'down the taxpayers' throats.
The commission supported a
hon-voter approved loan to finance
a city revitalization plan estimated at
;5 to $7 million. Ifyou add up, the fig-
hres supplied in the article they total
$8.4 million with the largest
'expense, $3.85 million, going to the
post office.
Some time ago when acquisition
bf the post office was in the news
there.was also the mention of a $2
million purchase price. Is that includ-
ed in the proposed loan or in addi-
tion to? At the time a study specifi-
cally stated the post office was not
appropriate to be used as city hall
and generally the whole projectwas
a bad idea.
If you read the letter of intent
between the federal government
and the city, dated April 21, 2009
,(which itself refers to "the bailout"),
you will find the city is really getting
shafted. Basically, the city buys the
building from the federal govern-
ment, agrees to renovate it for sev-
eral million dollars and assumes all
future costs of maintenance and
upkeep. The U.S. Postal Service,
however, retains 4,100 square feet
for its operationsfor 100 years at $1
a year. The letter of intent also states
that if the Postal Service requires
temporary space for its operations
during renovations, the city will pro-
vide it at no cost to the USPS includ-
ing moving expenses. What a deal!
If anyone is "pulling a fast one"
it's the federal government, which

course of American politics! What is
really encouraging is the Tea Party
is based on an entirely new form of
organization built around the
Internet; it's spontaneous, adaptive,
regenerative and functions without
any organized hierarchy or chain
of command.
It can't be co-opted, it can't be
hijacked by special interests and it
can't be crushed. This is a giant
step forward and given time it will
break the elite who are trying to
remove our sovereignty and replace
it with a "Godless One World

The debt-based currency sys-

allows honest, patriotic Americans

Energy independence is attain-

to Mideast dictators. We The People
should force our government to
stop deliberately refusing to drill in
our country but give billions to
other countries to drill.
We must quit voting for any can-
didate for office that continues to
support failed policies, a few of
which are listed above.
America is the last hope for the
entire world, but it is now up to us.

hey, who knows, maybe we'll revisit the public

Kasey (taxpayers): "So, any way you cut this
I'm the one who's going to have to re-pay your
loan, right?"
Ron (commission): "Right"
Kasey (taxpayers): "But, I'm not going to
have much input in your decision to borrow or
not to borrow, I mean, I'm not going to have a
vote, right?"
Ron (commission): "Right. If I have to get
your input it's going to take time too much
time, and besides, you might say no."
Kasey (taxpayers): "Well, I'm going to use
what little opportunity I have to say, maybe you
should wait awhile, look at the atmospherics,
things are pretty turbulent.: And re-think your
inclination to leave me out of the decision-mak-
ing process, my intuition's pretty good, and
since I'm the one who's going to be paying for
these things, these projects, then shouldn't I
have a say as to whether or not you move for-
ward, shouldn't I have a vote?"
All anecdotes aside, the last thing the com-
missioners should do is go rogue forge ahead
on their own to borrow $5 to $7 million without
citizen approval. They believe, they are sure
that Fernandina Beach taxpayers want to
spend roughly $3 million to $4 million improv-
ing Front Street and completing the waterfront
plan approved in 2008, more than $700,000
improving the intersection at Front and
Alachua Streets, over $4 milliofi bringing the
downtown post office up to code and more dol-
lars on un-named downtown and Eighth Street
improvements. Whoops that's way more that
$5 to $7 million!
The last thing the commission wants is to
act without citizen approval. When they come
home all wet from the rainstorm they should
have anticipated, given the current conditions,
the taxpayers may not be so willing to bring
,them a towel, and I guarantee they won't be
silent

City seeks



public



comment

The Office of City Manager Michael J.
Czymbor issued the following public notice
on Friday.
REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS
ON THE DRAFT STRATEGIC PLAN: FOR-
WARD FERNANDINATO IMPLEMENT
CITY COMMISSION GOALS FOR FY 2011-
2016
BACKGROUND
The City of Fernandina Beach partnered
with a local non-profit organization, the
Amelia Island-Fernandina Restoration -
Foundatioq, to launch Forward Fernandina
(F2). F2 focused on strategic planning for
the revitalization of downtown and adjacent
areas, including the Amelia River Waterfront,
the Eighth Street entryway and surrounding
neighborhoods. These areas are connected
to the city commission's 2009 goal for a five-
year downtown revitalization plan. F2 also
capitalizes on prior community visioning
efforts that address these areas, particularly
Vision 2000, in order to continue momentum
towards reaching community-identified
goals:
This partnership arose out of a recog-
nized need for action regarding these goals.
There has been a perceived trend in
Fernandina's recent past
of'strong visioning and ,
planning efforts, but lack
of follow-through to
implement the plans. In
evaluating past plans, F2
coordinators realized a "
great deal of community-
identified goals actually
have been accomplished
or are in progress, but Czymbor
there has been no cohe-
sive strategy. To remedy
this, F2 proposed using the prior visioning
goals as the baseline and working with the
community, key stakeholders and elected
officials to create a strategic plan to get
things done. The partnership launched in
January 2011, and town hall meetings were
held Feb. 3 and April 26, 2011. As part of the
process, F2 issued a community survey,
which was available in various community
locations, in the newspaper and on the city's
website, to receive further additional input.
On Feb. 18, 2011, the city commission
convened in a visioning session concurrent
with F2 efforts to discuss guiding values,
vision for the city, a mission statement and
community goals. During the strategic plan-
ning session, the city commission identified
the following statements and values to define
their organizational identity.
The DRAFT Strategic Plan: F2 FY 2011-
2016 document was created and made avail-
able on the city's website on May 27, 2011.
Since then, the city has received a number of
comments from interested citizens. On June
14, 2011, the city commission directed that
staff make the document available for public


comment
PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD
The public comment period will com-
mence on June 17,2011 and end on July 5,
2011. Citizens are encouraged to comment on
the draft strategic planning document as ref-
erenced above and previously made available
via the city's website at www.fbfl.us/F2.
Citizens should submit all comments in
writing via email to MCzymbor@fbfl.org or
by completing a comment card which is avail-
able at the City Clerk's counter at 204 Ash St.,
Fernandina Beach, FL 32034. All comments
must be received by 5 p.m. on July 5, 2011.

document, please contact the City of
Fernandina Beach, Office of the City
Manager at (904) 277-7305.

Treasures at low tide


It's always fun to walk
along the ocean's edge at low
tide and recently, when low
tide coincided with dawn, I
set out to see what I could
see.
On the beach from the
Amelia-by-the-Sea fishing pier
south, low tide unveiled a
series of sandbars, normally
underwater, and now exIx>sed
to walkers of all types. The
whelks, olive snails and clams
were barely hidden below the
sand, there for any searchers
who happened to look. It was
just a matter of following their
trails in the wet sand and
tracking to the spot where
they ended their journey. A
quick bit of digging, and
there they were, a handful of
beautiful shells to marvel at.
Once I noticed the mollusk
trails, I found dozens of
whelks, and innumerable
clams, with a few olive shells
thrown into the mix. But, of
course, I looked at them, then
returned them to their spot.
Anyone who has.carted home
living shells like these only


WILD
WAYS

Pat
Foster- Turley


did this
once. It's
downright
amazing
how smelly a
decompos-
ing'mollusk
can be on
your porch
or in your
suitcase.
Further
down the
beach, I
watched a
walker, who
stopped still


to stare intently at something
discovered in the sand. Even
from a distance I could tell
what it was a cannonball jel-
lyfish, a common sight, not
very exciting.
.Not very exciting to me,
that was. To the man stopped
in front of it, staring intently
at it, it was the most amazing
sight of the day. I called out to
him, "Nice jellyfish you found
there!" and started utp a con-
versation. "Oh, that's what it
is? I've never seen anything


like it!" Amazingly, it turned
out, this fiftyish man was from
Wyoming, and this was his
first walk ever! on an
ocean beach!
I clicked into environmen-
tal education mode, telling
him about cannonball jellyfish
and turning over this one to
show its tentacles. And there
inside the still-living jellyfish
even I found something to
make me excited. Nestled in
the tentacles, camouflaged
and still, was a crab! Without
the curiosity of this tourist to
draw me closer, I certainly
would have missed this treat.
The crab was a spider
crab, hitching a ride in the
underside of the jellyfish,
finding protection there, and
a bit of food that it can glean
from the jellyfish's tentacles.
Unlike many species of
marine life, this crab is
immune to the stings and can
spend some of its young life
in this habitat alone.Later,
these crabs grow larger, settle
to the bottom of the sea and
attach bits of sponge and sea-


weed to their carapace
to give them a different form
of camouflage. This crab was
lucky that the visitor's curiosi-
ty drew my attention to it.
With a toss of the wrist, the
cannonball jellyfish and its
rider were back in the sea
again.
The man and I continued
to walk side by side down the
beach, while he proudly
showed me his handful of
"finds." He, too, had figured
out the snail trails, and the
whelks hidden at the end of
them, and had dug some up
to admire. But being unin-
formed about the pitfalls, he
was planning to take these
live shells home. When I
broke the news to him, he
gently set his whelks and
clams on the wet sand and
together we watched the liv-
ing mollusks reaching out
with their soft bodies and
starting to dig for protection.
The tourist gentleman was
thrilled to realize they were
alive, and well again in their
natural habitat.

PAT FOSTER-TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Whelks can be found at the end of their trails at low tide
along our beaches.


We parted ways, both of
our mornings a bit brighter
for our rendezvous. My
tourist friend wandered off,
collecting dead shells this
time, and bits of driftwood,
with an eye for the shark
teeth I also described to him.
The glow of joy emanating
from this middle-aged first- *
time beachgoer infected me,
too, with a renewed love for
the ocean and for all that's liv-


ing there. And this man, I'm
sure, will be telling everyone
at home about his wonderful
discoveries in a beautiful ,
world that previously he only
imagined existed, the beach
we fortunates are proud to
call our own.

City man arrested after


pedestrian struck by car


RYAN SMITH,
News-Leader

A Fernandina Beach man
vas arrested Sunday after
lHegedly hitting a pedestrian
'th his car and leaving the
scene.
Christopher M. Mahoney,
44, 95070 Woodberry Lane,
Fernandina Beach, was
charged with DUI with injury,
leaving the scene of a crash
with injury and possession of
cocaine, all felonies,'and mis-
demeanor operating an unreg-
istered vehicle and possession
of drug paraphernalia.
The victim, 23-year-old
Todd Dunlap of Fernandina
Beach, received non-incapaci-
tating injuries from the crash,
according to Fernandina
Beach Police Capt. Mark
Foxworth. However, Dunlop
was transported to Shands
Jacksonville Medical Center
for treatment of his injuries.
Fernandina Beach Police
responded about 10 p.m..
Sunday to a call of a hit-and-
run accident involving a sin-.
gle vehicle and an injured
pedestrian. Upon arriving at
the 400 block of South 14th
Street, police met two wit-
nesses who pointed out a


green Buick parked nearby
with Mahoney allegedly in the
driver's seat.
The witnesses said they
.had been driving behind the
Buick when they saw it strike
a pedestrian and continue driv-
ing. They said they followed
Mahoney as he turned west
onto Date Street, trying to get
his attention by flashing their
lights and sounding their horn..
They told police that at one
point, they even drew along-
side Mahoney and yelled for
him to stop, but that he con-
tinued driving.
According to the witness-
es, Mahoney turned back onto
14th Street from Beech Street
and drove south until he
reached the scene of the acci-
dent again, then pulled to the
side of the road. At that time,
they said, police and fire res-
cue personnel were already on
scene.
As police were speaking to
the witnesses, Mahoney
allegedly got out of his vehicle.
According to the police report,
he had to brace himself against
the side of the- car and
appeared to have difficulty
walking. While interviewing
Mahoney, police allegedly
smelled alcohol on his breath.


Top Ten Mistakes Homeowners Make
When Facing Foreclosure
1. Fail to educate themselves regarding their rights and options
2. Avoid their mortgage company and do not return phone calls
3. Allow feelings of fear or hopelessness to prevent
them from taking action
4. Procrastinate until their options are gone
5. Make decisions based on emotion instead of
facts and proper education
6. Pay for fee-based education or counsel
7. Refuse to accept the reality and urgency of their situation
8. Turn to unregulated real estate investors for help
9. Follow advice from friends or family that leads
them down the wrong path
10. Fail to seek professional advice from an SSAA specialist

Mahoney was arrested and
transported to police head-
quarters on Lime Street,
where he allegedly refused to
perform field sobriety exer-
cises. He allegedly told police
that he had consumed eight
4-ounce bottles of wine about
two hours before the accident,
and that he had taken a 1-mil-,
ligram lorazepam tablet
around 4 p.m. that day.
Mahoney, a physician's
assistant -at Medical Weight
Management in Jacksonville,
allegedly told police that he
'knew he should not have oper-
ated a car after consuming the
filcohol and lorazepam, a pre-
scription drug used to treat
anxiety. He allegedly said that
he knew he had struck some-
thing while driving, but did not
know it was a person.
During an inventory of
Mahoney's vehicle, police
allegedly discovered a crick
pipe and a small amount of
cocaine. They also allegedly
determined that Mahoney's
vehicle was not registered.
Mahoney was transported
to the Nassau County Jail,

and Hanson paid the bill.
lHowever, when the victim acci-
dientally knocked over Hanson's
beer, Hanson allegedly pulled
a igun from his pocket and point-
ed it at the victim, saying "he
was going to have to shoot him
now." The victim described the
gun as-a small silver handgun
carried in Hanson's front pock-
Cl.
Deputies went to Hanson's
residence and when they asked
him if he had any weapons,
Hanson allegedly said he had a

Burglaryattempt
Police responded Thursday.
to a possible attempted burgla-
ry at Pompeo's Italian
Restaurant, 302 Centre St.,
Fernandina Beach.
About 10 p.m. Thursday,
Fernandina Beach Police were
dispatched to the restaurant to
meet with owner Mario Pomipeo
Manganaro, who told them one
of his 'employees had noticed
that one of the restaurant's
north-facing doors appeared to
have been tampered with.
Manganaro told police that he
inspected the door and found
that someone had appareritly
attempted to force it open. He
said the damage had probably
occurred late the previous
night, but he couldn't be sure as
the door was not commonly
used.
Police inspected the door
and found that someone had'
attempted to pry it open with a
metallic object. There were also
puncture holes apparently
made by a screwdriver in the
doorknob. There was no indi-
cation, however, that anyone
actually gained entry through
the door.

Irew Reese is pictured with a 31-inch Amelia River redfish. A variety of lures imitate area baitfish, including the ever-popular "Mirror Lure."
:ded rainfall is a must for baitfish to school. Giant sea trout, like the one Ryan Stallings boated, are often found where an abundance of baitfish
holding close to or over an ambush point. Stallings released his six-pound trout and, on the very next cast, caught and released a four-pound
trout.


e fish were not schooling
iuse they were spread out
Lp the tidal rivers where
fish had migrated.
We really needed the rain
more of it," Capt. Allen
s said. "A good rain would
only move game fish and
from far up in the rivers
he bays and inlets, but it
ld also help the offshore
ng." .
Ae finally had good rain
the fishing has improved.
We had a really excellent
of backwater fishing
ay," Capt. George Lannpn
. "We fished the flood tide


in Tiger Basin and caught a
mix of sea trout, flounder and
redfish. I believe the key was
the large live shrimp local live
shrimp boats are able to net.
Those west coast shrimp are
much smaller; you just can't
beat native shrimp."
During a recent backwater
fishing trip I pulled into the
mouth of a shallow tidal creek
that connected the Amelia
River with a large mud flat. It
was the first of the incoming
tide Saturday morning.
Schoolsof mullet were every-
where, while juvenile redfish
and sea trout terrorized live


shrimp that were trying to
jump onto the mud banks and
out of harm's way.
The day before, our fish-
ing party caught some 20 red-
fish and a pair of giant sea
trout. All of the redfish were
measuring in the legal slot,
18-27 inches. Before the rain
many of the redfish we were
catching were measuring less
than 18 inches.
"We need more rain," said
Don Whitman of Leaders &
Sinkers. "The fishing action
certainly picked up after the
heavy rain we had Wednesday
night. Have weighed in a


bunch of big flounder and
sheepshead recently. Off-
shore fishermen are catching
a lot of big grouper as well.
However, a good rain shower
each afternoon would certain-
ly help our local fishing."

has a unique fishery with tko
huge tidal rivers and inlets at
both the north and south
ends of Amelia Island. During
dry periods, saltwater game
fish and baitfish tend to move'
far up into the upper reaches
of both the Nassau River at
the south end of Amelia
il'hnd and the St. Marys


River at the north end of
Amelia Island.
I once knew of an old-time
fisherman who would taste .
the water tintil it tasted just
right. He always determined
the best fishing came where
saltwater and freshwater
came together. Another way
to determine where the water
mix is just right is to locate
where the water color turns
from dark tanic to a light tan
in color.-
So when you hear the
sound of thunder, stay inside
out of the rain. But when it
stops, go fishing.''

Insurance has partnered with
four of golfs younger stars, Ben Crane,
Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Hunter
Mahan, to create a song and accompanying
music video entitled "Oh Oh Oh" by the band
Golf Boys. The track, which is a throwback to
the 1990s boy band heyday of New Kids on
the Block, NSync and Backstreet Boys, has
so far proved an internet sensation 'attracting
over a million views on YouTube since it went

donate $1,000 for every 100,000 views of the
"Golf Boys" video.


r, One of the shots that we do not get to try too often is when the course is very wet
I and soggy. The most obvious piece of advice when playing on a wet turf is that
you realize that it is a very heavy ground you are playing on. Therefore, your mind-
set needs to completely change on the type of shots you want to play during the
round. You need to make sure that you do not hit behind the ball on a wet ground.
This is, by far, the most important task to be accomplished in order to achieve a
good shot. If you make contact with the ground prior to hitting the ball, a fat shot will occur. The
key to consistent play is to position the ball in the center of your stance and hover the club just
behind the ball at address. Finally, try to pick the ball cleanly off the ground.

When camp is all about chocolate what's not to love?


I went to camp. Even bet-
ter, I went to Chocolate Camp.
Peterbrooke, our island's
chocoiatier, offers a camp that
is all about learning about
chocolate. On Tuesdays and
Thursday all through the
summer you will find children
and adults gathered around a
large marble counter at the
chocolate shop next door to
Publix, working with choco-
late and creating delectable
edibles that they get to take
home at the end of class.
Peterbrooke Chocolatier, a
Jacksonville-based business,
was founded in 1983. Phyllis
Geiger, the visionary behind
the business, named it after
her two children, Peter and
Brooke. Based on the most
traditional of European choco-
late preparation, Geiger devel-
oped a chocolate business
that is now franchised
throughout the southeast.
Four years ago Sandy
Carroll, owner of the Amelia
Island Peterbrooke, was
ready to try something com-
pletely new. Her first career'
as an interior designer came


in handy in
her new
enterprise.
She uses her
talent for
color and
design in the
packaging of
more than
50 different
FROM chocolate
THE products
PORCH offered in
the shop.
.... Carroll has
Dickie created a
Anderson chocolate
wonderland.
You name it and chocolate
has been married to it -
Oreos, Butter Nutters, pret-
zels, marshmallows, strawber-
ries and my favorite, choco-
late-covered pop corn. This
petit blonde dynamo knows
her chocolate -we learned a
lot. We all put on our blue
aprons and proper cooking
hats and gloves. Carroll --
showed us what a cocoa bean
looks like and traced the com-
plicated process it goes
through to get to be the


chocolate we know and love.
She shared the amazing story
of the cacao bean and its
ancient history. The first peo-
ple who used chocolate lived
in southeast Mexico around
1000 BC. Later, the Maya peo-
ple used cacao beans as cur-
rency and in religious rituals.
Chocolate in its earliest form
was for drinking, not in the
solid form we think of today.
We learned that chocolate
is good for us. Good news for
this chocolate loving woman.
Chocolate is made from
plants, which means it con-
tains many of the health bene-
fits of dark vegetables. Dark
chocolate is rich in ant ioxi-
dants. A bar of dark chocolate
a day is said to reduce blood
pressure and is an anti-
depressant. No more guilt at
the candy bar cotmunter!
One has to be very precise
when working with chocolate.
Never use any wooden cook-
ing tools and the surface one
works on has to be of a con-
stant temperature marble is
preferred.

Chocolate campers Deborah Gold and David Kelly with.

Sadler Road.


the Hoyt House Bed and
Breakfast, attended the class
with her son David Kelly. "I
wanted to learn how to make
the wonderful chocolate cov-
ered strawberries we use at
our bed and breakfast and do
something special with my


son, so chocolate camp was
perfect!"
We watched as Carroll
tempered the chocolate. She
manipulated it to make it
usable for our dipping and
coating. Proper tempering
gives chocolate a smooth and


glossy finish. Properly tem-
pered chocolate is also great
for molding because the can-
dies will release out of molds
more easily and still retain a
glossy finish.
Each of us had a tray in
front of us with a green apple
with a holding stick, aspiring
to be a chocolate covered
caramel apple. By the end of
the class we had Oreo cook-
ies, pretzels and strawberries
all elegantly coated in dark oi
white chocolate.
We shared a pizza lunch
while our chocolate goodies
cooled. We went home with a
goody bag of our own cre-
ations and a.camp T-shirt!
Camp was good and
healthy!
Peterbrooke Chocolate
Camp is offered Tuesdays
.and Thursdays from 11:30
a.m.-2 p.m. Cost is $45 per
person. Call 277-0162.
