City officials debate how



to spend extra money

News I.eader I m


Fernandina Beach Commissioners
spent much of a Tuesday budget work-
shop debating how to spend $157,(X)0
still unallocated in the -,,11-12 city
budget.
According to City Finance Director
Patti Clifford, depending on the final
property tax rate increase chosen by
the city commission and assuming
proposed budget cuts are enacted, the
city would be $157,000 "in the black."
Commissioner Eric Childers asked
commissioners if they had any interest
in using part of the "extra" $157,()0 to
support selected nonprofit groups, as
the commission has traditionally done.
The city designated $78,000 for social
services in this year's budget but left
out nonprofit groups in the proposed
budget now under discussion.
Mayor Susan Steger urged caution,
"as much as I would like to be gener-
ous," but added that nonprofits need at
least token financial support to quali-
fy for matching grants.
Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch ques-
tioned restoring funds for nonprofit
groups while making cuts elsewhere.
"What kind of message are we sending
to the employees we're laying off?" he
said. "They may have to take advan-
tage of these (nonprofit) programs."
City Manager Michael Czymbor
said his most recent budget repre-
sented $1.2 million in general fund
reductions, which include layoffs of
some full-time city employees.
Commissioner Arlene Filkoff said

SCHOOL BUSES ROLLING AGAIN


A new school year
began Monday, and
the Florida
Department of
Education is urging
motorists to be vigi-
lant in obeying
school bus safety
laws. A DOE survey
in March showed
that more than
8,900 motorists
illegally passed
school buses on a
single day in
Florida. The survey
was conducted by
bus drivers
throughout the state
who were asked to
report incidents of
illegal passing
observed during the
normal school bus
route. The survey
showed incidents
increased slightly in
the afternoon, and
the majority
occurred when
vehicles illegally
passed on the left
side of the school
bus while it was
stopped.

Loretta Lee Polk
Loretta Lee Polk was.born November 21,1969
in.Fernandina Beach, Florida to her proud par-
ents, Lonnie D. Polk and Sharon Otorier Polk. She
departed this life on August 12,2011 in Folkston,
Georgia. '
Her mother and father preceded her in death.
Left to mourn are Loretta's daughter, Chelsea
Laura; a brother, Bubba Polk ofYulee; a sister,
Sherry Beeman of Oflon, Missouri; id aanephew,
Dillon Polk, and a niece, Kaylan Beemani, along
with a host of aunts, uncles and cousins. :.
In. Loretta's early adult life she was a.Ioving,
caring, good-hearted person. She worked, cooked
and cleaned and always kept a manicure.
She loved the beach, a good tan, her blond
hair, and her Granny Cooner. She never forgot her
family in Coonerville.


However, life can throw you curves some-
times, The grips of alcoholism took a hold on
Loretta's life. It made her become someone she
truly was not. And do things she never thought
she would do.
Still she remembered her closest loved one's
birthdays and would almost always call to say
Happy Birthday.
Loretta enjoyed each and every time she
played games or chase with Chelsea, cooked
with her Aunt Sandra, or went with nieces and
nephews to the beach or Walmart.
Loretta spent countless days and nights with
her Aunt Sandra, who loved Loretta like her own
daughter.
She will be loved by many and missed so
much, and remembered always.
And I would like to say she had made many
changes for the better the last few months of her
life.
A memorial was held on Sunday,,August 14,

Czymbor noted the city

"Obviously, some (union-

jobs," Steger said. She asked
Czymbor if he had recom-
mended that they could limit
their pay instead.
Czymbor said police and fire
union leaders agreed to hold
down pay raises, but the gen-
eral employee union leaders
"indicated they weren't willing
to do that." He added that the
union required a 30-day notice
for any unionized employees
losing their jobs, and that had
been given. He also noted that
four jobs were "saved" by an
increase in the property tax rate
approved earlier this month by
the commission.
Directors of the city's enter-
prise operations also gave finan-
cial reports on the past fiscal
year, and the news was not uni-
formly positive. The city's
municipal golf course and mari-
na, which are now managed by
private companies, reported
continuing deficits.


Airport manager Richard
Johnson noted, however, if a
sale of land at the airport goes
through, it would bring in rev-

shortfall.
The marina, however, is

the Amelia River will improve
conditions for larger boats and
have a beneficial economic
impact, commissioners were

"Are we doing the best we

"Yes, I believe we are."

Real estate outlook'uncertain


University of Florida
GAINESVILLE Economic
worries and continued acrimo-
ny among lawmakers have
claimed yet another casualty:
The outlook for real estate mar-
kets in Florida declined slight-
ly through the second quarter
of 2011, according to a new
University of Florida survey.
The Survey of Emerging
Market Conditions, conducted
quarterly by the Kelley A.
Bergstrom Center for Real
Estate Studies at* the
Warrington College of Business
Administration, concluded that
economic and political worries
were key components in the
decline.
"Uncertainty in the direction
of the economy and the political
gridlock in Washington
weighed] on respondents'
minds," said Tim Becker, direc-
tor of the Bergstrom Center.
"This prevents companies -
making record profits from
investing in personnel.
Consumers, uneasy about their
own jobs and the slow economic
growth, continue to limit spend-
ing, which drives a significant
portion of gross domestic prod-


uct. Resolution to the govern-
ment spending issues in the
short and mid-term would help
provide more certainty to the
marketplace, and is a needed
component for meaning
improvement in the real estate
markets."
Those doubts affected UF's
Commercial Real Estate
Sentiment Index, which
declined for the first time
since the thitd quarter of
2009, and high unemployment
figures played a role in that
decline.
S"Even though unemploy-
ment in Florida improved in
many markets, the pace of
change and the still-high levels
are affecting the pace of
improvements in the real estate
markets," Becker, said.
"Consumers continue to be cau-
tious and pessimistic about their
own spending, which is also
affecting the rate of fundamen-
tal improvement."
One of the measures used to
gauge the health of the resi-
dential real estate market is the
absorption rate, which is the
rate at which the inventory of
homes for sale is being sold.
The higher the rate, the more


active the market. In the latest
UF survey, the outlook for
new single-family home absorp-
tion declined because of the
struggling economy, but the
outlook for condominium
absorption increased for the
third consecutive quarter to a
new survey high. Becker
said a large influx of foreign
investment in Florida's condo
sector is a reason for the
Improvement.
The outlook for prices of
new single-family homes and
condominiums increased this
quarter, as did expectations for
occupancy for apartments and
condo conversions. Respon-
dents believe current occupan-
cy levels warrant price increas-
es in line with inflation despite
a sharp drop in apartment
investment, Becker said.
The outlook for industrial
occupancy declined for both
warehouse and flex space, but
.the outlook for investment in
warehouse space increased.
The outlooks for occupancy in
office and retail space also
declined, but respondents
believe occupancy levels will
stabilize. Land investment and
capital availability also declined,


Becker said.
llc apartment market con-
tinues to be the best performing
asset class. Becker said, driv-
en by changing demographics
and continued home foreclo-
sures, which has increased
growth both in supply and
rental rates.
The hospitality sector also
has been healthy as an improv-
ing tourism market has
improved hotel performance as
seen by increasing occupancy
and daily rates, Becker said.
The number of visitors to
Florida in the first quarter rose
by 3.3 percent to more than 23
million, Becker said. He also
said the dollar's weakness
against foreign currencies is
driving more foreign tourism,
which is leading to an increase
in investment from foreign
investors into Florida.
"Overall the future remains
uncertain and will continue to
depend on policies from
Washington that affect both
spending and job growth over
the coming quarters," Becker
said. "Positive steps in either or
both of those areas with have a
positive impact on real estate
markets."

City may score, or


be thrown for loss


Los Angeles city officials
are pursuing a new football
stadium for their downtown -
with hopes of attracting an
NFLteam.
This is a plausible use of
funds during these difficult
economic times. Residents
would benefit from having a
football team to call their own;
city officials would capitalize
on a new stream of tax rev-
enues (even with significant
initial costs).
In Fernandina Beach, city
officials have intentions of
restoring their old post office
building, building a waterfront
park and expanding the
public library. Residents might
enjoy using the new library
and the park, and admiring
the historic post office build-
ing.
However, local officials
would hardly capitalize
through enhanced revenues.
And there would be a sizable
outlay of borrowed funds to
the tune about $6 million.
(Some estimates are as high
as $10 million, but several
other projects are also includ-
ed in this forecast.)
So which group stands to
score the most? Obviously, it
would be the "City of Angels.".
The jury. is still out as to
whether a new library or a
remodeled post office can pro-
vide the same returns as an
NFL stadium. Especially when
the money has to be borrowed
to pay for the work.
Fernandina Beach.officials
must proceed wisely, cau-
tiously -as do any elected offi-
cials in this precarious envi-
ronment. Tax revenues are
down,expectations are up and
irritated voters are the inter-
ested spectators.
The dire outlook has left
other area officials scrambling
like a quarterback running
from a pursuing linebacker.
While most towns have held
the line or reduced tax rates,
other organizations such as
the Duval County School
P,,aid d e-delenatfl' fWle ic
spendingrrg-thrsve-en mort e
money.
Some counties have closed
outlying offices. School boards
are laying off teachers, admin-
istrators and staff. Even on the
state level, cutbacks are
impacting school funding,
department staffing, as well
as perks and frills. If there was
ever a no-frill mindset, it is


i ,- now.
Like the
Los Angeles
city council,
many elect-
ed bodies
'are seeking

enues. In
STEVE'S Fernandina

PLACE cials are

Steve Nicklas f e e s ,
increased
impact fees and higher tax
rates.
In addition, the $6 million
in borrowed funds would
come with an annual cost of
about $300,000 the interest
on the line of credit or bonds
or whatever funding mecha-
nism they choose. And you
can bet that this will be passed
on to taxpayers.
For this reason, elected
officials must be especially
prudent. Look no further than
indebted Jefferson County,
Ala., and its bankruptcy folly.
When tax revenues are flow-
ing in with the predictability of
the St. Johns River, officials
have more leeway and margin
for error. Not now.
Increasing taxes and bur-
dening the electorate with
additional financial commit-
ments could prove to be a
weighty combination. In many
instances, the same officials
initiating a large undertaking
are no longer in office when or
if problems occur.
The likelihood, that
property tax receipts will
improve next years dimin-
ishing. In fact, the anticipation
is that property, taxes will
not increase for several
more years. A moribund
Florida real estate market is
the culprit.
Elected officials, at all lev-
els, are putinto office to make
wise decisions for the citizen-
ry. Hiking' tax rates and
embracing huge projects must
hot be taken lightly.
After all, the final score will
eventually tell the story.

Inspired by their courage
HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader "


Anne Showalter was born
and raised in Jacksonville and
spent 40 years away from the
area before returning here a
little over 11 years ago when
she moved to Fernandina
Beach from northern Virginia
"I moved here before I was
ready to retire thinking it
would be good to work for a
time in the place where I want-
ed to retire, so I could more
easily meet people."
While she did work here
for a while, Showalter admits
she was wrong about needing
to be in the workforce to meet
people. .
"Fernandina is such a
friendly' place and so easy to
meet a whole variety of peo-
ple.".
Showalter says she likes the
community spirit of her home-
town, the diversity of the peo-
ple, the variety of activities and
being so close to the ocean.
For the past seven years,
Showalter 'has been a volun-
teer with the American Cancer
Society's Road to Recovery pro-
gram.
"I am a cancer survivor
myself and wanted to give back


'It is such an easy wa
to give back to the coi
munity and everyone
is so appreciative of su
small favors.

to those who are new to the
world of treatment for cancer
with the hope of making life
easier for them," she said.
While providing trans-
portation to cancer related
appointments, Showalter
shares her unique perspective
and special brand of encour-
agement with those who are
battling this nasty disease.
"It is such an easy way to
give back to the community
and everyone is so apprecia-
tive of such small favors. I have
met many courageous people
through my volunteering who
have inspired me," she said.
Showalter herself is an
'inspiring woman. She's getting
ready to participate in the half


marathon at the National
Marathon to Finish Breast
Cancer with Donna Deegan on
Feb. 12.
"I've never been an athlete,
but this will be the fourth time
I've been in it. It raises funds to
help women with breast can-
cer who need financial sup-
port."
Showalter is also active with
the Amelia Island Chamber

Guardian Ad Litem.

POLITICS IN BRIEF


SUBMITItD
Chris Billings, left, and Young Republicans chair Justin Taylor of Nassau County speak
before a group of state lawmakers in Jacksonville last month at a public hearing solicit-
ing residents' input in advance of the 2012 redistricting process. Legislators serving
on the House and Senate redistricting committees and subcommittees were scheduled
to travel to 26 cities prior to beginning the work of drawing new state House, state
Senate and congressional district boundaries. The Florida constitution mandates that
the Legislature vote on new maps during the 2012 session. Meeting video, podcast
and transcript, archives from the meetings are available at www.floridaredistricting.org
orwww.flsenate.gov/redistricting. The panel includes local state Rep. Janet Adkins.

well and followed tweets from her
team closely when Diana Nyad
made her second attempt to com-
plete the 103-mile swim from Cuba to
Florida.
With two years of relentless training
behind her, swimming up to 12 hours a day,
the 61-year-old endurance champion
stepped into.the ocean filled with cornfde0qc
and determination,-only-to be forced to quit
29 hours later.
"It's hard because I felt like I had it in
S me," she said after the
aborted effort.
She'll hit 62 seven
months before me but she
has more courage in her
little finger than I do in my
whole body.
"I'm so sorry you
had to stop your swim," I
tweeted. "But you're still
NEWS- my hero!"
ROOM When I watched as
VIEWS she attempted the same
S journey 33 years ago, she
*.- was defeated by huge
HeatherA. waves. This time her
nemesis was strong cur-
Perry rents and winds:
Battling the sea was
only part of the struggle for the gifted ath-
lete as she fought shoulder pain and asthma
during the latter part of the attempt.
It's not as if she hasn't completed major
swims. In 1979 she swam from the Bahamas
to Florida, a distance of 102.5 miles, a record
that still stands today.
Her name is listed in the National
Women's Hall of Fame and the Interna-
tional Swimming Hall of Fame as one
of the greatest long distance swimmers of all
time.
But prior to this monumental undertak-
ing, Diana hadn't swum in 31 years. To
even attempt such a grueling journey
after such a long absence shows the
kind of heart and courage this woman pos-
sesses.
She may not have finished the swim, but
she inspired thousands of baby boomers
like me with her determination.
As Vince Lombardi once said, "In great
attempts, it is glorious even to fail."

'Flat earth people' hav


Ever been to a movie or read a book
that just made no sense at all? You
were tempted, surely, to walk out of
the nonsensical movie or put down the
wacky book, but given your investments of
time and dollars, decided to stick them out.
The current political landscape is kind of like
that, nonsensical and wacky, and the jury is
still out on how many of us are willing to "stick
it out," hopefully, and this is just a hope, mind
you, most of us are growing tired of the non-
sense.
It all used to be fairly simple, elected repre-
sentatives were either "delegates" reactors,
really, to the perceived whims and desires of
their constituents, or "trustees" their votes
reflected their own conscience and best avail-
able information.
I was always a "trustee" kind of guy. Exactly
how a "delegate" went about determining the
will of the people was a mystery to me, I mean,
did they just follow the polls, or go by the num-
ber of phone calls, emails or tweets, or, as is so
often the case locally, who and how many peo-
ple showed up at a meeting? No, give me the
conscience and best information people every
time.
That was then, this is now: "trustees" and
"delegates" have scattered to the proverbial
winds and the "ideologues" have taken over,
also known as Tea Partiers, or "flat earth peo-
ple."
For months I've believed that "flat earth
people"were radical fiscal conservatives,
extremist Republicans. But today I find myself
agreeing with former Reagan speechwriter Hal
Gordon when he says, "Don't call them conser-
vatives. Call them Banana Republicans, if you
like, or Republicans-gone-Bananas."
Agree with them or not and increasing


numbers of Americans are
., falling into the "not" column -


DEBATE
AND
TAIUT I 1


they are controlling the agen-
da in Washington, and
Democrats, from the presi-
dent to party leaders in
Congress and traditional
Republicans are wilting like
petunias under a Tea Party
sun.
Where's the wackiness
and nonsense? Well, consid-


A **&- * Think the recent down-
"'g grade triggered chaos in the
Ron Sapp market and created panic
among investors, business
people and regular folk? Imagine what would
have happened if the "flat earth people" in
Congress had prevailed and the country had
gone into default.
"Flat earth people" in Congress are only
interested in cutting, reducing the size of the
federal government by reforming (cutting)
Social Secirity, reforming (cutting) Medicare,
reforming (cutting) Medicaid, reforming (elim-
inating) environmental programs like the Clean
Air and Water Acts, etc.
"Flat earth people" never mention the
effects of two wars on the deficit ($250 million a
day for the war in Iraq and $300 million a day
for the wa'r in Afghanistan).
"Flat earth people" refuse to consider any-
thing that might look like a tax increase, even if
it's eliminating taxpayer subsidies to oil compa-
nies or closing loopholes in the current tax
code that are nothing more than "earmarks"
for corporations and wealthy individuals.
"Flat earth people" aren't alone in their
silence regarding the fiscal impact of war.


Cutting plastics
recycling

Did you hear that Nassau
County has decided to stop paying
for plastics recycling effective Oct
1 ,("County to cancel plastics recy-
cling," Aug. 10)? This decision is
not acceptable to me as a taxpayer,
as I have been recycling for 30 years
and can't justify throwing my plas-
tics in the trash (especially since
plastics seem to be the most used
and recycled items). If plastics are
not recycled, they will just end up in
the landfill, taking up additional
space.
Has the county approached the
trash services for our area asking
them to incorporate recycling as
part of the trash pickup? Many
other communities do this, and even
if lhad to pay a little more, it would
b ,be worth it. Recycling is important
to our environment, so, if this deci-
sion makes you as mad as it.does
me, please write, call or email your
commissioners to let them know
how you feel.

Read the letters
I must reluctantly admit that I
do not follow the news as closely as
I should. I've read, and heard, snip-
pets here an there re: Forward
Fernandina and the Fernandina
Beach Commissioners' plan, and
drew no conclusions. However, after
I read several letters over the past
weeks, especially July 13 and Aug.
10 editions re: the prospect of a
bond issue and what it entails and
covers, I have to state categorically
that the commissioners' vision is a
mess.
Thank you to Ms. Cote-Merow,
Mr. Reisner, Mr. Crawford and Mr.
Megna And kudos to Mr. Wise and
Mr. Kawecki. Your thoughts and
opinions are well thought out, well
researched and you've broadened
my views on this subject immense-
ly. Only a complete idiot (or set
thereof) would approve of the plan
and the bond issue, given the cur-
rent fiscal climate and the concerns
of the citizens. It reeks of a policy to
sustain the city government and
businesses that will be involved in
executing the F2 plan. Not to men-
tion that it smites the general
public.
As Mr. Reisner put it, "The pur-
pose of the city is to serve the needs
of the taxpaying citizens, not the
city workforce." Come on commis-
sioners, is it too late to put it on a bal-
lot? Let us vote on it if you think
it's that worthwhile.
But before that's done, review
the letters I'm speaking of. There's
a wealth of information, vision, ideas
and proposals within those letters
that are relative, cost-effective, com-
munity approving and more than
likely will not raise the ire of the
citizens.
Rich Burge
Fernandina Beach

Washington in
Fernandina
I am stunned, shocked and
angry. This is ridiculous, why aren't
you fine folks listening to the people
you work for? OMG, it's Washington
in Fernandina. According to your
resolution ("City may OK $5.9 mil-
lion bank loan," Aug. 12), this will
not be paid for in taxes. But you
want to raise taxes to pay for basic
services ("Citizens angered as city
hikes mill rate," Aug. 5). According
to you it will prevent layoffs and lack
of services, yet you are willing to
spend and ask for loans to move us
forward.


e their day

Democrats and Republicans say nothing, too: I
guess it's much more patriotic to focus on the
costs of older and poor Americans.
Aside: Did you know that $5 trillion of the
national debt is owed to the Social Security sys-
tem? Wonder what those Washington politi-
cians borrowed all those dollars for?
At the state level, well, it's state government
where nonsense and wackiness is simply a way
of life; Floridians count on it, like the rising and
falling of tides. No "trustees" or "delegates" in
* Tallahassee, just wannabe ideologues or partly
hacks wandering around the Capitol building
looking for some idiotic law to support or pass.
Local government? Well, at the city level it's
hard to find commissioners who are purely
"trustees" or "delegates," I see hybrids. Some
really believe conscience and best informa-
tion that borrowing $6 million to finance a
portion of the F2 plan-is the right thing to do.
Some believe it's what their constituency -
interest groups and individuals want them to
do. And most believe both.
I have almost no hope for the federal level -
too big, too cumbersome, too special-interest-
oriented, too party-oriented. I know how it's
supposed to work, it just doesn't work that way.
I'm ready to walk out of the movie and put
down the book.
I have no hope for state government; won't
buy a ticket for the movie and won't take the
book off the shelf.
I am a big believer in local government;
I'm an ardent fan. I know, they do weird,
wacky, nonsensical things sometimes, but I'm
not ready to walk out of the movie and I'm not
ready to put down the book. Despite what I've
seen and read so far, I have high hopes for the
ending.

JEFF PARKER/FLORIDA TODAY


You are going to and are willing
to add more franchise fees to pay
this loan back, levied on the backs
of each city resident.
I live here, I work here and, yes,
it's hard for me to pay my bills. I
want to know when I became a fran-
chise that you could add more to
what I already pay for? And before
you claim it's only $1.91 (per $100),
in the last three years my electric bill
has increased six times.
I have yet to turn on my AC this
summer because I can't afford the
extra, and it has been very hot if
you haven't noticed. The extra $1.91
Sis a $1.91 less I will have to pay my
bills, buy gas and food.
How many more franchise fees
will you incur, sewer, water, garbage
pickup or, better yet, breathing.
You have paid groups to come
in and tell us how to fix a city that's
not broken.
Yes, folks, these people do not
work for free, do you?
I would love to see how much
this cost us to get their opinion.
They probably make more in week
than we make in a month.
You want to move us forward to
better downtown, to bring in more
tourism dollars, yet you're missing
the point, it's not that people don't
want to come here, they like all of us
just can't afford it.
Our commissioners made it clear
at previous meetings that they did
not want to use a general obligation
debt, which would require voter
approval. I know why, they know
we will vote it down. They want
more than we can afford.
Scary isn't it? I'm begging all res-
idents to demand that this becomes
a general obligation debt so we can
Choose if this is what we need right
now. I live from paycheck to pay-
check, maybe they should try it and
see what it's like.

Amelia redux
We lived on Amelia Island for 15
years. I required medical treatment
at Shands Jacksonville so returned
to the island for six weeks of thera-
py. As fate would have it, I developed
a more serious problem, but now all
is well and I am healthy again and
back in Fort Worth, Texas.
Now I want to say a public


"thankyou" to so many friends who
rode with me or drove me to the
Proton Center, drank a lot of cof-
fee with me to bolster my spirits
and provided many laughs and fel-
lowship along the way. These
friends include both old and new
members of the Amelia Island
Museum of History, Civil Air Patrol,
Amelia Island Sailing Club, Baptist
Medical Center Nassau (including
the Auxiliary), Baptist Medical
Center Jacksonville and the Amelia
Plantation Chapel among others.
They were all so supportive and
caring. I want them to know how
grateful and appreciative I am of
their kindness.
I especially want to thank two
families who graciously and gener-
ously shared their homes: Dave and
Iris Jacobsen and George and
Shirley Spaniel. Their friendship
and hospitality are immeasurable.
Amelia Island is a place of incred-
ible natural beauty and wonder, but
what I was reminded of for sure is
that the people of this island are its
most enduring gift, its treasure.
Many thanks for your sharing
your goodness.

Rocky Dumas
Your articles earlier this year
featured a gem of a person, Rocky
Dumas. He was a mainstay at the
Main Beach boardwalk; you could
find him there most every day in his
motorized chair. I am. sad to report
that he passed away unexpectedly.
My father-in-law found him in his
condo at Ocean Park this morning.
He was like family to my in-laws,
who also live full-time at Ocean
Park. Rocky will be missed by many
on the island, but most of all his
extended family within the Ocean
Park community.

Tom Feazell
Tom Feazell was one of the most
avid members of "Friends of Crane
Island." He attended almost all
meetings of the county and city
commissions that dealt with Crane
Island, he was there in the court-
room when our case was heard. He
constantly offered support as the


issue wore on over the years, both'
morally and financially.
Tom'died Thursday morning at
Mayo after a long courageous strug-
gle to overcome a failed liver. As
John Kennedy said, "The courage of
life is often a less dramatic specta-
cle than the courage of the final
moment; but it is no less a magnif-
icent mixture of triumph and
tragedy."
A Kentuckian, Tom was a strong
environmentalist. He has left his
mark here, as well as elsewhere,
by his love of nature. In a discussion
once about the effort to destroy
Crane Island, Tom quoted John
Muir: "God has cared for these
trees, saved them from drought,
disease and a thousand tempests
and floods. But he cannot save them
from fools."
And, as Muir wrote, "the moun-
tains are calling and we must go."

Unhappy Republican
Florida health insurance premi-
ums are certainly a telling reason
why we are in the mess we are in.
When our Republican legislators
refused to approve an overhaul of
the state's health insurance pro-
gram to have all state employees
pay the same monthly premiums
and to have a cap on health insur-
ance coverage paid to state workers,
it was an excellent example showing
the hypocrisy in our state govern-
ment. (High-ranking state officials,
most legislators and other state
executives' monthly health insur-
ance premiums start al
$8.34/month while the workers
start at $50/month.) With all Ith
problems we are having, the legi-
lature and the executive class
should be ashamed that they are
getting a deal that anyone would
love to have while the peons are
left holding the bag.
We the citizens are paying
their salaries. Maybe it is time to
kick all the bums out and start
fresh with a government that is
working for us the taxpayers rather
than us working for the govern-
ment! I am a Republican and not a
happy one.

Montreal


PHO OS BY PAl TbUS tIRK-1UKLEY/t'UK lO INI NW.-LI A
Unwary people disregard signs and feed raccoons on a
scenic overlook in Montreal, above. Montreal is the
largest fur trade center in the world to this day, with all
kinds of coats for sale, even otter, below.


Not everyone reads or fol-
lows signs. In Montreal,
Canada, like here, there are
many notices around that
insure the safety of people in
their interactions with wildlife.
And where there are signs,
there are people who don't
read them. *
On a recent trip to
Montreal, I stopped at a sce-
nic overlook on a stormy after-
noon. For most tourists, this
was a fine vantage point to see
the St. Lawrence River wind-
ing around this famous island.
For me, it was a chance
wildlife encounter worthy of a
story. There in front of the
lookout was a stand selling ice
cream. And just beyond were
two overweight and furry
young raccoons begging from
the customers. The ice cream
vendor was eagerly encourag-
ing people to feed the rac-
coons their Haagen-Dazs and
people happily complied. A
few reached over to pet them!
I couldn't believe it! These
young raccoons were obvious-
ly tame and used to the atten- .
tion, but I pity the poor child
who pulls their ice cream bar
away when a raccoon has it in
its sights.
Signs all around the area
warped of the dangers of feed-
ing raccoons, both for people
who might get bitten, and for
raccoons who would become
fat (like these were) and too
used to people for their own
good. Signs were ignored.
Raccoons were fed. Some peo-
ple tried to warn the feeders,
and told their own stories
about raccoon bites, etc. but
to no avail. And the ice cream
vendor just smiled and sold -
more ice cream.
Montreal is full of furry
animals, no doubt about that,
but riostly dead ones.
Beginning from its historical
roots and carrying on to this -
day, Montreal is the largest
fur trade center in the world.
Although those with deep
humane concerns might not
.like it. the,downtown stores
hotised a number of fur shops
selling ready to wear items
and fur coats custom made to
your specifications.
I wandered into one of
these fur shops and feigned a
fondness for fur coats. Before
long I had the sales ladies.
bringing out an otter fur coat
for my inspection. It was a
beautiful coat, no doubt about
it, with thick luscious fur in
various shades of glossy
brown. The sales ladies
warned me, though, that the
coat is too heavy for women to
wear, and they recommend
otter fur only for men. As luck


would have
it the coat
was on sale!
Only half-
price, a steal
at $3,500!
So of
course I
ordered one
for Bucko.
WILgD Yeah, right.
WAYS You readers
M by now
know me
Pat well enough
Foster- Turley not to
believe that
one! Instead, I photographed
the coat and the price tag, and
petted it one last time before
leaving the shop.
My mind was full of my
own North Anierican river
otters Albion, Bayou, Cajun
and Delta otters I raised as
cubs and handled and loved
throughout their lives at
Marine World in California
back in-the good old days of
my early career. These four
animals were as close as I
ever came to having children
of my own, and their personal-
ities still reside in my soul and
visit me in my dreams.
Sometimes I even see live
otters in my backyard reten-
tion pond, always a wonder to
behold and a boost to my spir-
its. These charming critters
roam up and down Amelia
Island and are sometimes
spotted at the Fernandina,
downtown marina, or along
Egans Creek Greenway. In
the past few months a number
of lucky YMCA patrons have
even seen a mother otter and
cubs in the retention pond
near the parking lot.
' Otters are charismatic,
cheerful, engaging critters
that, alive, fill our world with
their joyful wildness. Dead
otters are another thing
entirely. Their fur is thick,
especially in cold Canada
where the furs in this coat
originated. But thick dead fur,
no matter how beautiful, does
not inspire nueat.al. : .
I would bench happier if;
instead of otter fur coats in
Montreal I managed to see a
live otter swimming in the St.
Lawrence River, but that was
not meant to be. So instead,
my wildlife watching was
reduced to watching tame
wild raccoons being fed by
unwary tourists, disregarding
signs to the contrary.
But-at least those raccoons
were alive.

Scam of the Week Grandma, help me


This week we will discuss
an old scheme to part grand-
parents from their savings. In
the past month, Seniors vs
Crime received numerous com-
plaints of this scam coming
back to life in Nassau and Duval
counties. The reason we see
more of it this time ol year is
because students are going
back to college after the sum-
mer. The bad guys realize the
families are temporarily sepa-
rated from their loved ones.
Variations of this scheme may
include calls from not only pre-
tend grandchildren but phony
nieces, nephews or distant rel-
atives that you have pot heard
from in quite a while.
The telephone rings and a'
voice on the other end says
something like:
"Hi Grandma this is your
favorite grandson." You
respond with a friendly query
"Billy, how are you doing at
school?" Then the scammer
spins his sad story about being
arrested and needing you to
send him bail money since he,
of course, does not want to tell
his parents about his misfor-
tune. Billy asks you to wire him


SSeniors vs Crime

A Special Project of the Florida Attorney General


money from Western Union or
another similar business but
not to use your bank. That is a
huge red flag telling you that
the caller does not want the
money transfer to be traced and
he will not need to show iden-
-tification when he receives your
money Your "grandson" claims
he will pay you back when he is
out of jail and can get to his
bank.
The trick to avoid being
taken in by the caller is to
engage him in conversation
about your family. Usually he
will know a little information
about your relatives but few
details. Ask him how his sister
Jane is doing, knowing full well
his sister's name is Martha. If
he plays along with your fabri-
cation you know he is also
being untruthful. Ask other


questions about your family and
when he has to dodge the
question or give you false infor-
mation, he will realize you are
on to him and hang up the
phone.
One of our senior sleuths
recently received a call from
someone claiming to be his
nephew in Norway. He did, in
fact, have a nephew that lived in
Norway. The nephew needed
money and asked the uncle to
wire him $2,000. Thinking it
may be a ruse, the uncle asked
how his nephew's wife was
doing using a phony.name for
her. When the caller did not
acknowledge or correct the
wrong name, the "uncle" hung
up the phone and the scam was
prevented.
If you receive a phone call
from a person claiming to be a


relative needing money be sus-
picious and ask enough ques-
tions so that you can confirm
the identity of the family mem-
ber. We want you to keep your
money in your bank account,
not in some pretend relative's
account.

Prowlerarrest
A Fernandina Beach man
was arrested Aug. 9 for prowl-
ing and resisting arrest with-
out violence near Golden Isles
Court on Amelia Island,
according to a Nassau County
Sheriff's Office report.
After witnessing the man
park and leave his car before
entering the backyard of 2110
Golden Isles Court, a deputy
spoke with. the owner of the
residence, who said she had
no knowledge ofthe man and
didn't want him in hqr yard.,
The deputy then called for
the man at which point the
man fled oh foot across
Citrona Drive toward Lake
Park Drive and MacArthur
Street where he fell down.
When the man reportedly
rose to run again, the deputy
deployed his stun gun, which
connected with the man's
shirt but failed to penetrate
the skin. The man told the
officer he lived across town.
Other residents living near
Golden Isles Court did not
know the man, according to
the report.

Deliberate crash
A Georgia man was arrest-
ed Aug. 9 for allegedly delib-
erately crashing his car while '
carrying two juvenile passen-
gers, according to a report
from the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office.
David Dewitt, 31, of
Kingsland, Ga., was passing
a weigh station on US 17 when
,he su0ddely;,ptIled0. up .the
emergency brake, causing the
vehicle to run off the road and
into the woods, the report stat-
ed. Dewitt then instructed the
juveniles to run north toward
a motel, and fled himself on
foot, according to the report.
A deputy found the two
juveniles near the weigh sta-
tion and De~witt hiding in the
woods, the report stated. He
allegedly told deputies he lost
control of his car and it slid
into the woods but could not
explain why he fled the scene.
Deputies observed in the
report that he seemed intoxi-
cated.
The juveniles told police
Dewitt was driving almost 100
mph when he pulled the
emergency brake. There were
no injuries reported and the
vehicle had moderate front-
end damage.
Dewitt was transported to
the Nassau County Jail on
charges of leaving a crash
scene with damage and reck-
less driving.

Woman flips

A Hilliard woman was
.arrested Aug.10 for rolling her
vehicle into the opposite lane
ofA1A.

County Sheriff's. Office,
Patricia Crochet, 39, of 2206

came to rest in a ditch of the
westbound lane.
Crochet allegedly told
deputies she had been trying
to put out a cigarette in the
ashtray and lost control.
According to the report,
Crochet also told deputies she
was taking the prescription
drugs Soma, a muscle relax-
ant, Valium, an anti-anxiety
medication, Oxycontin, a nar-
cotic pain reliever, Fioricet, a
headache medicine, and
Phenergan, an antihistamine.
Deputies reported she had
slurred speech and appeared
confused.-
Crochet was arrested and
results of a urine test are
pending, according to the
report.

Centervandalized
The front door of the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation
Center was smashed with a
rock last week.
According to a Fernandina
Beach Police report, a juve-
nile skateboarding in the area
noticed the front door of the
center had been broken and
contacted police about 10p.m.
Aug. 11.
According to the report,
police observed a large hole in
the glass door and glass on
the ground. After a search
inside and outside the build-
ing, police found nothing dis-
turbed or stolen, but found a
medium-sized rock inside the
broken door.

PD assists child


thrown from horse


Employees of Public
Defender Matt Shirk work all
hours of the day, often visit dan-
gerous locations to analyze
active crime scenes and scour
neighborhoods to talk to people
who may have witnessed an
alli.-cd crime. Last month an
investigation required a visit to
a Hilliard neighborhood where
investigator Paula DeLuca (of
the Nassau County Public
Defender's Office) was inter-
viewing witnesses for a case.
However, the danger
DeLuca encountered was not
related to the particular inves-
tigation, but rather the drive
back to the office on a rural
road where she saw a six-year-
old girl thrown from a horse.
"On the way back from
Hilliard I was about a quarter of
a mile behind a van on Middle.
Road when I encountered two
girls on horseback," said
DeLuca. "Once the van passed
the girls, the horse on which
the younger girl sat was evi-
dently spooked by the vehicle
and threw her up in the air
before she landed on her back.
As I approached the crying
child, her companion was con-
soling her. That's when we


Sanoticed both
horses run-
ning down
the road. The
driver of the
van that was
also sharing
the road
assisted me
De Luca in rounding
-- up the fleeing
horses."
'DeLuca continued, "I was
really scared that the little girl
who weighed approximately 50
pounds may have severely
injured her back in the fall so I
checked her out and I called
911. A call to her mother the
very next day gave me great
news that her little girl was fine
and received no serious
injuries. The work of a PD
investigator is certainly exciting
and there is never a way to pre-
dict what will take place dur-
ing a day's work!"
DeLuca has been with the
Office of the Public Defender
since January 2009. The Nassau
County resident was recently
reassigned to handle the case-
load in Nassau following pnore
than two years of service in the
Duval County office.

PECK ALUMNI CELEBRATE

Peck alumni gathered in Jacksonville on Aug. 6 for a banquet celebrating the 100th
anniversary of the founding of Peck High School. Above, banquet guest of honor E.

Presbyterian College (now Eckerd College) initially denied Kennedy entrance because
he is black but ultimately admitted him after faculty protest. In 2009, the school
bestowed Kennedy with an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree. Below right, CMC

Saturday


before Nf

Amy Tompkins, a regular
contributor to the News-Leader,
sat down withJeffSaturday, a
Super Bowl winner and five-
time Pro Bowl player who has
spent 10 seasons with the
Indianapolis Colts, for a ques-
tion-and-answer interview July
16. Saturday trains on Amelia
Island.
The popular Colts' center
and player representative,
Jeffrey Bryant Saturday, lives
his spring and summer months
on Amelia Island with his wife
and children. Tompkins
caught up with him and his
personal trainer, Sean Keith,
at the Health and Fitness
Center on Omni Amelia Island
Plantation and asked them
about Saturday's workout regi-
ment during the recent lockout.
Since the interview, after
the 4 12-month lockout by the
NFL, the team owners and the
NFL players association set-
tled.

Q What brings you to
Amelia Island?

A This is my fourth sum-
mer coming here. We
have a house on the island
and I always stay until train-
ing camp begins.

Q. How have you been
keeping in shape dur-
ing the lockout?

A: I have been working out
S with Sean Keith (owner
of Vida Fitness) for four
years. He is the best there is.
I mean I keep coming back
(to him) for a reason.

Q What makes him so
Q good?
A. He is a great asset for
me. He understands
how to get the m ft fr, ;m m-r
No way can I push myself as
hard by myself. He pushes
me that extra bit, gets me to
push through and never quit.
But he is always checking to
keep me safe. He is preparing
me mentally as well as'physi-
cally.

Q What makes this prepa-
ration so important to
you?

A During the season, it is
important to have
trained for the fatigue. The
later you get in the game, the
more important it is. It keeps
you in the game mentally.

Q: What is a typical work-
out routine for you with
Sean?

A: He trains me 2-3 times a
Week depending on my
schedule. I've been flying'
back and forth to Minneapolis
for the talks. He has me doing
a combination of cardio and
weights for one hour at a
time. To begin, he has me
running uphill on a 15-degree
incline as fast as I can. Then
we begin a weight routine
and, in between, I jump rope
100 repetitions, so my heart
rate never comes down.
Then I do things like inch-
worms, up and downs, three
levels of jumps, lateral steps
plus sprinting if we are out-
side. It's never the same.
Then we finish with strength
work. My shoulders and legs
shake. Nothing is left on the
floor. I leave it all out there.
Q What are you doing in
between sessions?

A. I bike 15 miles, do some
strength training and
run the sets I need to do for
my position as center.
Q How do these off-sea-
son work-outs prepare
you for training camp?

dishes


L kickoff

A It is important in the off-
Sseason to do heavy con-
ditioning and gain strength so
going into the season you are
stronger.
During the season it's all
about maintaining with lifting
and running, practices and
games.

Q What makes the differ-
ence with Sean?

He provides a level of
accountability. He texts
me during the week. He asks
about my diet; like what I had
for breakfast. He wants me to
come to each session the
most prepared I can be, so
each session can be the most
effective it can be.
He is the person I have to
answer to. He talks to me
before each workout and
designs the workout as part
of a whole plan. He has specif-
ic things he wants me to
accomplish in each week. He
is a planner.

\. What do you do with
your children? Work
out? Sports?

SWe run, either 5K or
A one mile (6ver the July
4 weekend, the entire family
ran in the Vida Race Series
Independence 5K). We walk
and bike regularly together. I
coach my daughter and
youngest son in soccer. We
surf, golf, play tennis and
football.

Q What's your best asset
S as a football player?

A Well, I get compliment-
A ed on "managing the
moment." I make sure I am in
the moment and I don't let it
overtake me. For instance,
.when it's third-and-10, I can
control myself. I don't have
anxiety in the moment.

How do you do
.that?
SIt's prayer and I give it
over to God. There is
only so much I can do. I play
as hard as I can and then the
results are up to God. I mean
I have won a Super Bowl and
lost one. But I think I can
keep perspective because of
my faith and my family. I am
lucky and blessed.
Q: Who are some of the
S people who have influ-
enced you?

A My mom and Tony
Dungy (head coach of
the Colts from 2002-8). He is
my example. He was unbe-
lievably of huge importance
to me.
He taught me that if I was
going to be successful playing
in the NFL, then it needed to
be part of my life, a big part,
but not everything in my life;
faith and family are always
first.

Q What is the toughest
thing you have ever
done?

Parenting. There is no'
manual to tell you
what's right and what's wrong
to do. There is nothing I care
more about. It is so difficult
and you can't see down the
road to know if you are doing
a great job. You just have to
wait and see, through all the
stages.
I just want my children to
be content. When they go to
sleep at night, I want them to
feel good about whatever they
do, whatever they are des-
tined to do, whatever God
calls them to do.
I hope that they are able to
find their gifts and content-
ment in their souls.

Pruett clinches amateur motocross title


Ryan Pruett, grandson of
Fernandina Beach residents
Russell and Mary Norris, just
made his dream come true.
The seven-year-old dirt
bike racer from Greenville,
S.C., won the largest amateur
motocross race in the world,
the 30th annual Red Bull
AMA Amateur National
Motocross Championships at

over class divisions.
After crashing in the first
moto, finishing third, Pruett'
went on to race two perfect
motos, finishing first and first
to take the overall win.
Pruett competed as a'five-
year-old and finished fourth
overall. This year, he won it.
"The Amateur Nationals
at I. ,r t'ir Lynn's is the event

country wants to compete
in," said event director Tim
Cotter. "A win at the Amateur
Nationals gives a rider
instant national notoriety and

fessional motocrossers,
including James Stewart,
Ricky Carmichael, Travis

Downriggers for summer gamefish


I


Yulee fishing team Michael Powell, son
Michael D. Powell and Levi Martin,
above from left, weighed in the largest
redfish, 6.98 pounds, for first place in
the recent Fernandina Beach Fishing
Rodeo. There are three basic types of
downrigger weights round ball, fish
shape and the Z-wing right. Keeping a
close eye on your boat's color recorder,
below, will help determine the depth of
water downrigger baits should be trolled.
PHOTOS BY TERRY IACOSS/SPECIAL


Traditional summer
deep water fishing
techniques include
trolling with weight-
ed wire lines, attaching a
large planner ahead of a long
trolling leader or simply
threading a heavy trolling
weight onto a trolling line.
These same deep-sea fish-
ing techniques are still suc-
cessful today in their own
league of saltwater fishing.
However, a fishing tool prop-
erly named the downrigger
rapidly began to find a new
home on deep-sea fishing,
boats offering a new and
more accurate method in pre-
senting baits and lures to
both shallow and deep-water
species ofgamefish.
Today you will find the
majority of deep-sea fishing
boats outfitted with a pair of
downriggers, one mounted on
each gunnel and close to the
transom so downrigger cables
and fishing lines can clear the
boat's running gear.
During the late '70s and
early '80s, downrigger manu-
facturers constructed their
downriggers for freshwater
fishermen targeting a variety
of gamefish in deep lakes and
rivers. At the same time, salt-
water fishermen became
interested in the advantages
of downriggers for deep-water
saltwater fishing applications.
However, freshwater downrig-
gers, particularly the electric
models, simply did not hold
up to saltwater fishing.
During the 2009 Southern
kingfish Association National
Kingfish Championship, Rube
McMullen and sons Barrett
and Grant lowered an eight-
pound downrigger weight to a
depth of 40 feet of water with
a modern-day, saltwater-proof
Cannon manual downrigger.
A deadly kingfish leader, a
"double pogy," was rigged to
-a pair of pogies they had net-
ted earlier and rigged to 20-
pound kingfish tackle. The
duo of live pogies were set
with a 30-foot drop-back dis-


tance from
the downrig-
ger weight
and slow
trolled under
a huge
school of
pogies balled
up by an
ongoing
OUTDOORS kingfish
-*..- onslaught.
TeTyLatcoss Seconds
later, a
record-breaking kingfish ate
the lives and their 74.10-
pound Biloxi, Miss., king
mackerel became a new
Southern Kingfish
Association record for the
Ocean Isles, N.C., fishing
team and pending Mississippi
state record kingfish.
A major factor why there
has been a giant increase in
fishing with downriggers dur-
ing the past few years is suc-
cess stories like the McMul-
lens'. Part of this success
must be credited to the im-
provement of fish' finders, par-
ticularly the new high-defini-
tion digital models. Saltwater
fishermen are now able to
identify exactly where in the
water column to effectively
troll baits and lures.
Round weights work best
in water depths from just
under the surface to 50 feet.
Ten-pound fish-shaped
weights and "Z-wing" weights
work best for deep-water
downrigger fishing.
Typically the deeper you
fish with downrigger baits
and lures, the shorter drop-
back distance, the distance
from the weight to the bait or
lure. When deep-water trol-
ling from 5-20 feet of water,
the drop-back distance should
run from 30-50 feet from the
weight.
When placing trolling lines
into the release clip, the fish-
ing line is twisted 3-4.times
and then placed between the
pads of the release clip. For
larger baits, place the fishing
line further back in the


release clip pads or, in the
case of the outrigger style
release, simply tighten the
adjustment screw.
Today downrigger manu-
facturers have specifically
designed their deep-water
fishing tools for saltwater
applications. Electric motors,
wiring, switches and materi-
als are now saltwater proof.
Manual downriggers are
often preferred over electric
models because they are
lighter, easier to store and
less apt to stop working
because of an electrical prob-
lem.
There are two methods of
mounting downriggers onto
your kingfish boat. The most
popular method is with a per-
manent mount bolted through
the top of the transom or gun-
nel. A swivel mount allows for
various positions of the down-
rigger for easy access and to
afford for a wider trolling
spread of kingfish baits. Rod
holder mounts allow for the
downrigger to be easily re-
moved and stored when not
in use while positioning the
downrigger in a convenient
location.
Telescopically downrigger
booms are an option, allowing
for a wider spread of baits.
King mackerel fishermen
often attach a 100-foot length
of 200-pound braided line or
100-pound mono line to the
end of the cable to eliminate
the humming noise caused by
the wire cable. However, if
you wish to use the wire
cables, tennis balls or large
corks can be threaded onto
the cable, eliminating the fish-
spooking cable hum.
Downriggers are your key
to catching deep-water sum-
mer gamefish.

weighing 53.55 pounds dur-
ing last weekend's Golden

Bucket list a little shorter after horse ride on the beach


W all joke about our
bucket lists. Parachuting
from an airplane, trips to
exotic places, running a
marathon, meeting someone famous
and on and on. We admire those
who actually follow their dreams and
go for it.
To me, riding a horse on a beauti-
ful, sandy beach is an unusual,
unique and, yes, romantic notion and
made my bucket list. Needless to say
when I suggested a horseback ride
on the beach, the Big Guy preferred
the comfort of his Jeep Cherokee.
He pointed out riding on the beach
wasn't on his bucket list.
Late on a recent Saturday after-
noon I met Missy and Schad
Freeman in front of Elizabeth Pointe


Lodge for a late day
ride on the beach.
Missy and Schad
own Stay 'N
S Country Ranch just
off Blackrock Road
in Yulee. The ranch
offers boarding for
horses, riding les-
sons, camps and
FROM birthday parties for
THE kids, hay rides and
has a huge party
PORCH barn available for
-... rent.
Dickie I was introduced
Andto Stretch, my new
Anderson best friend. Stretch
is an elegant Palomino. My ride on
the beach sounded great in theory,


but reality set in as I walked over
and approached Stretch. Stretch is a
pretty good sized horse. He
impressed me, but I did not feel the
respect was reciprocated. My brava-
do evaporated as I looked at the sad-
dle high above me. I had patient
companions. Once in the saddle
(with assistance), Missy gave me
some basic instructions. She told me
to sit back on the saddle and keep
my feet forward. She showed me
how to use the reins and the inside
of my legs to give Stretch the neces-
sary signals that would keep us
heading in the right direction. As I
grew more comfortable, so did
Stretch. Off we went. I was living my
dream
The beach was quiet except for a


few people enjoying the end of their
day at the beach. The sand was
bathed with a rosy pink glow and the
sea was quiet with barely a ripple as
soft waves broke along the shore.
People grabbed their cameras to
take pictures as we moved down the
beach. We stopped and children cau-
tiously approached the gentle hors-
es. Some wanted to know how they
could arrange for a similar ride.
When it was time to turn around and
head back we first stopped for a little
wadding in the ocean. The horses
loved the water.
When the ride ended Schad
helped me down off the ever-patient
Stretch and warned me that 1 might
be wobbly when my feet met the
ground. He was right. It took me a


few minutes to regain my balance.
Horses don't smile, but if they did I
think Stretch might have even
smirked.
Horseback riding on the beach
off my bucket list. Next? Feels good
crossing another wonderful experi-
ence off my list.
Stay 'N Country is offering s spe-
cial beach ride for High Tide
Women's Weekend Saturday,.Sept.
24 For more information or to make
a reservation contact Missy Freeman
at 322-9739 or visit them on
Facebook.
