I've been shotfour times, stabbed three times,
blown up twice and run down by cars twice.'
JOHN ELLIOTT


The assassin



in winter


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
T he older gentleman resem-
bles most Florida retirees.
Clad in a loose-fitting
Tommy Bahama shirt and
peeking over reading glasses, he
alternates glances between the
menu and his wristwatch. 12:36 p.m.
He's early.
What distinguishes the gentle-
man from other transplants to the
Sunshine State is the matrix of
fibrous indentations littering his
complexion deposits of scar tissue,
each betraying a violent memory of
its own.
"I've been shot four times,
stabbed three times, blown up twice
and run down by cars twice," the
man says while nursing an iced tea
and rubbing absently at a shiny scar
stretching across his left forearm.
Like most freelance profession-
als, his line of work came with ves-
tiges of uncertainty odd hours,
lump sum payments and a certain
level of independence. But unlike
most freelancers, he did not receive
credit for his work. Ideally, his work
went unnoticed.
When nations engage in open


conflict, they declare war. They
recruit, train and outfit troops before
sending them into the fray. When
nations cannot afford to declare war
for reasons economic or political,
they facilitate incidents unofficially.
Enter John Elliott.
For years, U.S. State Department
officials would phone Elliott mere
days before sending him on assign-
ment A government-sanctioned
killer, he has sent between 285 and
335 men to their graves depending
on whom you ask, he noted. His
resume, which includes the demise
of former Ugandan dictator Idi Amin
Dada, spans six continents and four
decades.
Owing to his father's work Elliott
grew up abroad. Henry Hiram Elliott
Jr. was an operative working for the
U.S. government's Office of
Strategic Services, a precursor to
the Central Intelligence Agency.
Despite the clandestine nature of
his work, Elliott said his father was
always a role model at home.
"He was always there for me," he
said. "If you had an issue, if you had
problems in school and I always

Hilliard woman


joins School Board


Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Friday
appointed longtime Hilliard resident
Kimberly Fahlgren to fill the unex-
pired term of former Nassau County

"It is a huge honor to receive the

ilies and taxpayers of Nassau County,"
Fahlgren said in a press release. "I am
grateful for the confidence of Gov. Rick
Scott and the support from former

others."
Adams resigned from the board in
May after serving since 1996.
Fahlgren, 40, has been an occupa-

"I have three children, who are
growing up in Nassau County schools

Fahlgren said.

ASSASSIN
Continued from IA
did he was always a sympa-
thetic car. I have many great
memories of my father."
His father's work, he admit-
ted, might have inspired his
own work.
"He was actually one of the
guys at CanmpX in the late '30s."
said Elliott9"So I think at some
point in my life., I made the sub-
conscious decision about try-
ing to follow my dad's foot-
steps."
The elder Elliott routinely
imported crates of ammunition
to their home in England, he
said. As a result, Elliott took a
liking to marksmanship'at a
young age.
"I think I was just barely
walking when I first started
shooting," he said with chuck-
le.
His aim, he recalled, was
uncanny even as a chi1d. Once
when he and his brother were
playing outside, he lazily lobbed
a small stone in his sibling's
direction. When laughter
became sobbing, Elliott real-
ized he accidentally struck his
brother.
"If I see a target, it's like me
pointing at it," he said. "I hit it.
I don't know why. Maybe it's
because of my dad, because of
archery, because of all that stuff
he got us doing."
That aim applied to sling-
shots, bows, and -when he was
seven years old, he estimated -
pellet guns. Not long after, it
would include guns.
Still, Elliott insisted his
marksmanship is not a natural
talent but a skill born of time
and training.
"I practiced without exag-
geration probably about five or
six hours a day," he explained.
"It wasn't a labor at all. It was
just pure love."
Tirelessly he aimed at paper
targets. Day and night he shot.
'Sometimes he even skipped
school to improve his craft.
For Elliott, it was a pursuit of
the most elusive target per-
fection. His goal, he said, was to
represent the U.S. in Olympic
competition.

It was a humid stretch in
July 1966 in Quantico, Va.,
when Elliott found himself sur-
rounded by men with guns. Led
by a friend's impulse, Elliott
enrolled in an invitational shoot-
ing match.
Lasting five days, the invi-
tational was sponsored by the
Marine Corps;,the, U.S. Army,:
the Virginia State Police and:
the Fairfax County Police.

Dubrovnik, Croatia in
1996 during the hunt for
war criminal Zeljko
Raznatovic (Arkan).
Raznatovic was later found
assassinated.

Traditionally, members of the
military dominated the compe-
tition: Judging by the crowds
of servicemen present, he
deduced this year would prove
no different.
A perfect score haunted
sharpshooters since the com-
petition's introduction. Three
hundred, points separated them,
and him, from perfection. The
previous year's winner .a
Marine, Elliott noted achieved
a 290.
Armed with a borrowed
Anschtitz rifle, Elliott stared at
a defenseless target. Beads of
sweat trickled from his brow
and soaked his hands as he fed
a round into the rifle. Inhale.
Wrenching the bolt forward,
he aimed down the barrel at
the round's intended destina-
tion. Exhale. His index finger "
gently hugged the trigger and
with a deliberate pinch, the
round pierced its victim.
The target's successors
shared its fate. When the match
ended, Elliott emerged victori-
ous with a score of 300.

petitors admired Elliott and
offered congratulations.
His performance, he said,
drew the interest of recruiters
from the Fairfax County Police
Department. Members of the
U.S. Department of State
pitched their idea "Come
shoot for us."
"I.was 19 years old and not
too much going on upstairs, so
when they made the offer it
sounded pretty romantic to
me," Elliott recalled.
His remarkable talents
would aid national interests
abroad, they said.
"I had envisioned them pay-
ing me to shoot," Elliott said.
"And they did, but not at tar-
gets. I was pretty naive actual-
ly."
In the days that followed, he
said he accepted the depart-
ment's offer. He submitted to
physical and psychiatric evalu-
ations. Before long, he was
attending sniper school and
receiving government checks.
Mere weeks after the com-
petition, Elliott was aboard a
flight traveling to Southeast
Asia for his first assignment. ;

Rays of sunlight crept
through the thick jungle canopy
near the village of Ran Ban,
Laos during the foggy morn-
ing hours of Aug. 27, 1966.'
.Outfitted in camouflage,
Elliott lay still on the forest floor.
Terrified, he refused to move.
He had not budged for days
save for the odd sip of water.
Five days earlier, a helicopter
had dropped him in the region.
Equipped with a rifle, a radio
and rations, he journeyed to the
village on foot.
"Several days later I arrived
at the point where I was told
the folks I was to kill would
show up," said Elliott.
Originally home to peaceful
Hmong villagers, said Elliott,
the area had since become a
source of increased Pathet Lao
and Viet Cong activity A com-
munist regime, the Pathet Lao
represented the Laotian equiv-
alent to the VC.
A Pathet Lao officer and, two
VC officers stood speaking at
the base of a tree and Hmong'
villagers tended to their crops -
all of them unaware of the
stranger in their midst:
The buzz of motors in the
distance broke the morning
silence. Two vehicles, a con-

vertible and a canvassed truck,
rumbled into the village and
stopped.
Elliott watched through a
scope as the arriving officers,
most of whom were his targets,
exchanged formalities with the
Pathet Lao officer.
His finger constricted its grip
on the trigger, dispatching the
first target with a head shot and
sending the rest into a panic.
Reload.
Elliott's next shot pierced
the chest of a second target and
severed the arm of a third.
Reload.
The Pathet Lao officer was
next. The bullet entered his
chest and exited his back.
Reload.
The final shot Elliott fired
found its victim ducking on all
fours beside the car, with the
bullet traveling from his but-
tocks through his brain.
"Immediately following
those assassinations I thought I
would for sure be killed by the
men chasing me," Elliott said.
"It was only by a miracle that I
did manage to get to a point
where I would be picked up and
taken back to safety. I didn't do
anything heroic by anyone's
measure. Instead, I was young
and naive and 'stupid beyond
measure."
After disposing of his tar-
gets, Elliott whispered a prayer
and fled through the jungle
toward the extraction point. He
would endure another day's
wait before he was cleared for
extraction.
"That was my very first
assignment and I was '19," he
added, chuckling at the foolish
specter of his youth.
Elliott's superiors would
later confirm to him that he
killed five men with four bul-
lets. All of the targets- primary
and secondary had been elim-
inated. The mission, as far as
they were concerned,'was a suc-
cess.'

Far from his days as a hired
gun, Elliott is retired to Amelia
Island now.
"I retired in 2003, but from
2003 to 2008 1 had still worked
occasionally," he explained.
"The last thing was the year
before in Dubai. I got called and
I was on an Irish passport at
that time ... but the best part
about being retired is being
retired."


Gone with his youth are the
days in which he might pick up
the phone and take off for
weeks at a time to the farthest
stretches of the map. Gone are
the $5,000 advance checks, the
ones he said enticed him to con-
tinue his work for decades.
"Back then that was pretty
good moneyy" Elliott said. "I
think that was the impetus that
kind of pushed me into staying
with it was the money. It's a
horrible reason, but there you
are."
Living in Fernandina Beach
with his wife, the life he leads
now is a simple one.


In the absence of the excite-
ment and the blood money, he
cherishes things less material.
'Most of all, he appreciates the
newly found time he spends
with family.
"I've got two daughters and
five grandchildren now, and I'm
married to the person I want
to be married to," he said. "I
can't complain. ... Once you
have children your whole life
changes. My youngest daugh-
ter, who got out of the Marines
and got married a couple years
ago, just had her first child, my

teeth. As grown-up teeth
grow and move through the
jaw to the mouth's interior,
they cause the babytooth

If it's wiggling, it needs to

Survey 'Innovate


Northeast Florida'


The Nassau County
Economic Development Board
(NCEDB) hosted McCallum
Sweeney Consulting, which pro-
vides site selection services and
economic development con-
sulting to companies and organ-
izations worldwide, on Aug. 30.
The meeting was part of the
initial phase of "Innovate North-
east Florida." a program launch-
ed by JAXUSA Partnership, for-
merly Cornerstone Regional
Development Partnership, and
the Northeast Florida Regional
Council.
The focus groLlp was con-
ducted i. Rieck, NCEDB
executive director and served
as a presentation of Nassau
County, to the consulting team.
The consulting team then met
with two Nassau County com-
panies and discussed the
strengths and,weaknesses of
doing business in the county.
Similar focus groups and indi-
vidual company interviews were
conducted throughout the
region through Sept. 2.
Rieck and Dan Camp,
TerraPointe project manager,
will serve as Nassau County rep-
resentatives on the steering
committee for the nine-month


project that will result in three in-
depth reports for the region: a
SWOT analysis providing a
detailed evaluation of the
region's competitive strengths
and areas for improvement, a
target sub-cluster definition
report containing detailed pro-
files of each target cluster and
sub-cluster and target imple-
mentation plans recommend-
ing specific community devel-
opment, workforce develop-
ment, business development
and marketing actions for each
target audience, including a
timeline, budget and metrics.
Announced earlier this year
and funded by the Economic
Development Administration
and WorkSource, the study will
help the region's economic
development organizations iden-
tify the most promising busi-
ness sectors that will stimulate
future economic growth and cre-
ate detailed marketing and busi-
ness development implementa-
tion plans to grow those
industries in the region.
All residents are invited to

'You can't make


The natives appear restless
within Fernandina Beach.
A pattern of confusing mis-
steps and misjudgments by city
officials has ruffled residents.
Relentless tax and fee increas-
es. Unchecked borrowing and
spending. Trivial projects. And
an air of arrogance in their deci-
sions.
If there was a town crier in
Fernandinpi Beach, an old-style
messenger and broadcaster of
events, he might be crying
right now. Or maybe laughing.
Not with amusement, but with
contempt.
"You can't make up this
stuff," says Charlie' Corbett, a
longtime resident.
Corbett, who is retired,
makes it flis job to scour City
Hall for data on actions and
issues He recites the glaring
blunders and shortcomings of
city officials: He summarizes
their actions as the "epitome
of ridiculous-ity." So here he'
goes:
The city's whimsical and
tyrannical use of impact fees
has infuriated residents, so
they've risen up through a
class-action lawsuit. Recently,
city officials secretly tried to
assess nearly $800,000 of
impact fees against local restau-
rants and make it appear as
though the state initiated it.
A longstanding lawsuit
between the airport operator
and the city. Current officials
appealed the latest $1 million
verdict against the city. Another

tion this fall, and therefore no
savings. "That's still my
favorite," says Corbett.
The twice-weekly Voice

complaints about city officials.
Corbett has frequently written

Vice Mayor Tim Poynter and
Commissioner Eric Childers as
the "Gang of Three" for their
often-similar voting record.

borrowed funds will be paid
through an assessment on res-
idents' utility bills. Steger
expressed concerns that people
may think "we're pulling some-
thing over on them." According
to Corbett, "Yeah, that's exact-
ly what we think."
Paradoxically, the two
major projects underlying the
$5.6 million loan involve build-
ings that the city does not yet
own the old post office and
the old First Union building on
Centre Street. Opening
Alachua Street at the water front
and erecting a waterfront park
are two other ",i.i f that
hardly exhibit any urgency.
City. Manager Michael
Czymbor continues to push
ahead with several unpopular
projects: installing parking
kiosks and moving the board-
walk at Main Beach. He's doing
it under the guise of searching
for "new revenues."

ground lights. Again, it is anoth-
er misstep by city officials who
don't seem to be willing to
revisit it (Steger, Childers and
Poynter voted in favor of the
$44,000 project in a 3-2 vote).
The city increased its
property tax rate again by
more than the state allows with-
out a super-majority vote.
Ironically, several.of the cur-
rent commissioners were elect-
ed on an anti-tax platform.
Czymbor has allowed city
building officials to run
roughshod over local con-
struction projects, even though
there are a precious few in a
weak economy. Excessive fines,
fees and harassment have been
hallmarks of city action.

Gold with a higher calling


HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader
When one enters the Total
Access Gold store at
Blackrock Road and State
Road 200, it's not immediately
obvious that this is a store on
a mission.
Owner Andres Lavenderas
is not only a gold dealer; he's
also the "missional pastor" at
Total Access Church, a multi-
ethnic community of faith in
Jacksonville.
Raising funds for his
church in this unique manner
had its start when the pastor
took a bit of gold to a gold
purchasing store during a
time of financial hardship.
While handling the transac-
tion, the owner struck up a
conversation with him.
After listening to
Lavenderas' story, the
owner offered him a job
and "God orchestrated the
plan" for him to later open a
store of his own in Orange
Park.
Lavenderas earmarked
profits from that store to sup-
port his family but the Yulee
store earnings are d, ,Iirn>,l
for a higher calling, namely
supporting his church.
"We operate by biblical
principles. We strive to do
right by God and to bless peo-
ple as God blesses us," he
said.
The store purchases silver,
gold and platinum at top dol-
lar, and Lavenderas hopes to

As a Christian, Elliott
remains conflicted. He has trou-

with who he was then. Some-
times he suffers from night-

deeds.
In another life, he said, he
might have been an architect.
While an adolescent he dreamt
of designing skylines. Elliott
might have lived in New York
City, he said, had he not won
that shooting competition.
"I really regret having gone
the way I did," he said. "There's
no question about it. I wish I
had not done it. I can't escape
'what I did. I can't change what
happened. The only thing that
comforts me is that I know the
people who, for the most part,
were gotten rid of were not
good people. And if it wasn't

decades immersed in it."
Although the emotional tor-
ment of his earlier life has sub-
sided, Elliott continues to pay
the physical toll for his past
transgressions. Having suf-
fered a heart attack, a broken
femur, a gunshot wound to the
stomach, shrapnel from an IED
- none of these, he insisted,
compare to a kidney stone.
"I passed one the size of a
pea and thought I was going to
pass out. I told my wife, if I
pass another one of these,
you're going to have a set of
earrings," said Elliott, his laugh-
ter infectious, "It's horrible
pain."
Despite a sharp wit, Elliott's
edges have dulled. Arthritis
taxes the joints he used to stake
his life on. He walks with a
noticeable limp in his step now.
The knee, he said, will be
replaced in October when he
turns 65.
The scars remain constant
reminders of his sins. But for
now Elliott has found peace.

City canft see


the forest


for the trees

O nce again the city of Fernandina
Beach has sprung on its citizenry
an ill-conceived plan.to satisfy a
minority, many of whom don't
even live here, at the expense of a large
group of residents who do live here and
care about their town.
We reported earlier this summer that
the city had projected revenues in 2011-12
from the removal of trees on city property.
How many trees, 'and where, would the city
cut to raise the $50,000 to $100,000 in pro-
jected revenues?
No, no, no said the city cmriissi-'iih:r-.
do6't'ibelieve wlat you read in the newspa-
per., It's just a few trees, for safety's sake.
How did this get bent all out of proportion?
Two months later, with the help of three
consultants, the city airport manager pro-
posed a plan to the Airport Advisory
Cominission to eliminate hundreds if not
thousands of trees from the city golf course,
city recreation land and neighborhoods on
all sides of the.airport. For safety's sake, of
course, not to mention the $82,000 that
could be reaped from the harvest of trees.
Neighbors erupted pine trees "have no
aesthetic value," according to the.plan but
environmentalists and homeowners found
common cause that trees have inherent
value and raise the worth of property.
The city once again touted pilot safety
but promised to reconsider. The plan is
"preliminary," the city manager said, and
the revenues won't be booked in the 2011-
12 budget. The issue will be studied and
reconsidered later no doubt after the
November election.
Let's put the safety issue into perspec-
tive. Yes, there are tall trees that must be
thinned to make flying into and out of our
airport safer.
But the real issue is economic. The city
has expanded non-precise instrumentation
landing to a new runway the one nearest
the golf course, recreation area and neigh-
borhoods off Simmons Road and that
imposes new federal height limits on trees.
Furthermore, the airport plans to expand
non-precise instrumentation landing to
other runways, requiring trees to be cut in
their vicinity.
That would accommodate corporate jets
whose owners don't wish to land in
Jacksonville and endure a 25-minute limou-
sine ride to a resort on the south end of
Amelia Island.
This is thus not purely about "safety" but
about the "economic viability" of our air-
port, which is another money drain in the
hands of our city government.
It may be that we want to make this
tradeoff despite the environmental conse-
quences or the hit to property values of
neighboring homeowners. But it's a debate
that should take place in the open, before
the full city commission, with clear under-
standing of the issues.
We had one runway with non-precise
instrumentation; why do we need to expand
our capabilities? Plenty of corporate jets
land here now; what's the payoff of expan-
sion? And to whom? What benefits, exactly,
accrue to our citizenry from such a plan?
We don't want to compromise pilot safety
that is paramount. But our society makes
similar tradeoffs every day; higher inter-
state highway speed limits offer economic

Too late for President Jeb Bush?


Is there a President Jeb Bush in the White
House's future? Many pundits think he'll
run after 2012 and could have a chance
of winning despite having the same last
name as you-know-who.
But a lot will depend on the 2012 race's out-
come whether the Republican Party repudi-
ates the conservatism that his brother, former
President George W. Buish, and father, former
President George H. W. Bush, espoused. And
'make no mistake about it: a GOP victory in
2012 with most of the current crop of candi-
dates would be a virtual repudiation of three
generations of the Bush family's approach to
politicking.
If Texas Gov. Rick Perry gets the GOP
nomination and.wins, look for it to be lights
out for three generations of Bushes' attempts
to make the Republican Party's image more
accessible and expand its political tent. And if
Perry loses particularly if he loses big look
for Jeb Bush to be at the forefront of those
who'll pick up the'pieces.
There are some ideological detours, but the
Bush family's politics has been fairly consis-
tent for decades.
Jeb Bush's grandfather Prescott Bush's first
run for Senate in Connecticut was partially
sunk by GOP opponents attacking him due to
his Planned Parenthood ties. During his. 10
years in office he voted to censure Wisconsin


Republican U.S. Sen. Joseph McCarthy and
was considered an ideological soulmate (even
though he reportedly couldn't stand him) of
New York moderate Republican Governor
Nelson Rockefeller. *
Fast forward to Aug. 18, 1988, when his son
Vice President George H.W. Bush accepted
the Republican presidential nomination,
declaring: "Does government have a place?
Yes. Government is part of the nation of com-
munities not the whole, just a part. And I do
not hate government. A government that,
remembers that the people are its master is a
good and needed thing..."
Then his most famous line: "... I want a
kinder and gentler nation."
The first President Bush didn't pull his
punches in his often-brutal Lee Atwater-
designed campaign that decimated the hapless
Massachusetts Gov. Michael "Snoopy"
Dukakis. But once in office Bush was willing
to work with the opposition, break his "no
new taxes pledge" apd paid the ultimate polit-
ical price as conservatives deserted him.in
droves.
Son George W. Bush was determined not to
make his dad's same mistakes or be a clone
but GWB did advocate "compassionate conser-
vatism" and enraged conservatives by unsuc-
cessfully pushing for comprehensive immigra-
tion reform, which died in the Senate in 2007.


Reports said Bush was "crestfallen."
Jeb Bush was a highly popular two-term
Florida governor whose widespread support
(Latinos, Jewish voters, women, Haitians,
black and white voters, independent voters)
typified a model for big-tent Republican poli-
tics. This member of a neoconservative think
tank recently warned GOPers running for
president that if they don't want to scare off
moderate voters they need to do more than
say no and that if need be he'd support
increased revenues to boost the economy. "If
you're a conservative, you have to persuade.
You can't just be against the president," he
said.
Democrats and liberals will concede few
good things about the Bushes. But in no way
can the Bushes ever be confused with most of
the current Republican presidential wannabes.
The political tragedy of Jeb Bush from the
standpoint of voters unhappy with Barack
Obama and the Republicans now running for
President is now a cliche:
If only Jeb Bush didn't have that last name.
But the day after Election Day in November
2012, Jeb Bush could have the last laugh.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Getyour flag ready
Please join us in a "Fly the flag"
campaign and please ask your
friends and family to do the same.
We have less than a few days to get
the word out all across this great
land and into every community in
the United States of America.
If you tell at least 11 people and
each of those people do the same -
well, you get the idea.
The program:
On Sunday, Sept. 11, an
American-flag should be displayed
outside every home, apartment,
office and store in the United States.
Every individual should make it
their duty to display an American
flag on this 10th anniversary of one
of our country's worst tragedies.
We do this in honor of those who
lost their lives on 9/11, their fami-
lies, friends and loved ones who
continue to endure the pain and
those who today are fighting at
home and abroad to preserve our
cherished freedoms.
In the days, weeks and months
following 9/11, our country was
bathed in Anmeri,'h la k i.inl',
mourned thl. inci-Albl. l i- and
stood shoulder-to-shoulder against
terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all
but disappeared. Our patriotism
pulled us through some tough times
and it shouldn't take another attack
to galvanize us in solidarity. Our
American flag is the fabric of our
country and together we can prevail
over terrorism of all kinds.
Action plan:
(1) Take a moment to think
back to how you felt on 9/11 and let
those sentiments guide you..
(2) Fly an American flag of
any size on 9/11. Honestly,
Americans should fly the flag year-
round, but if you don't, then at least
make it a priority on this day.
Thankyou for your participation
and support.
God bless you and God bless
America!

Dumbfounded
The recent decision by the
Fernandina Beach City Commission
to take out a $6 million loan to
revamp the historic downtown area
is dumbfounding to me. I mean real-
ly? Seriously? To say I am upset is
an understatement, and I don't even
live in the city!
While I am upset on several lev-
els it has set me on a bit of a philo-
sophical journey to try to explain to
myself how they could have
reached such a decision with such
overwhelming opposition from'the
very citizens who elected them. I
like philosophy; I took the requi-
site courses in college, but also have
done my own bit of reading. Some
of my favorites are Plato, Socrates,
Confucius and some more modern
philosophers as well.
We as voters try to elect wise
leaders to represent us and obvi-
ously the city commission sub-
scribes to Socrates'view on wisdom
who once said the following: "I am
the wisest man alive, for I know one
thing, and that is that I know noth-
ing." To take out a $6 million loan to
attempt to move a library hardly
anyone uses and fix up a post office
building that has been left in disre-
pair by the current "owner" in an
economic climate where stock port-
folios are vanishing before our eyes
and people are losing jobs and
homes at breakneck speed is evi-
dence that the city commission,
truly does know nothing. Obviously
they never read Confucius' view on
government: "He who exercises
government by means of his virtue
may be compared to the north polar
star, which keeps its place and all
the stars turn towards it."
As for the more modern philoso-
phers, one of my favorites is a man
named Forrest, Forrest Gump, who
had some rather whimsical views
on life, telling it was "like a box of


ADAM ZYGLIS/THE BUFFALO NEWS


chocolates, you never know what
you're gonnaget." Obviously, the
only thing left in the box of choco-
lates the city commission gave the
residents of Fernandina and the
business owners in the city was the
chocolate-covered prunes that no
one likes. This makes me think of
another well known Gump-ism as I
like to call them: "Stupid is as stupid
does."
Last, now that (Commissioner) -
Eric Childers wants to vote himself
a pay raise ("Childers: Raise, don't
lower, pay," Sept. 2), I think that the,
mostfitting quote is from actor Jack
Nicholson's character in Tim
Burton's Batman movie from 1989,
who as the Joker said very suc-
cinctly, with an incredible smile on
his face, "This town needs an
enema!"
Thank God I only work in the
city and .don't live there.

Noisy pets
If a group of young people were
to have a party with loud music play-
ing at night, I'm pretty sure some-
one would call the police to com-
plain about it.
I've been listening to a barking
dog since 11 p.m. (Sept. 3) and it is
now 2:45 a.m. (Sept. 4). He is tied to
a tree. That seems to be where he
usually spends most of his days and
nights when he isn't running loose.
He is also exposed to the critters
(possums, raccoons and such) that
roam the night and could turn him
into a play toy if they choose.
If I were to use my lawnmower
or play loud music between these
hours, I'm certain someone would
call to complain. Would someone
enlighten me if the leash laws and
- noise ordinances apply only to city
residents or if it's a countywide set
of laws?

Jail limits rights
In recent weeks, I have had a
loved one incarcerated at the
Nassau County Detention Center. I
have learned that family and friends
of an inmate must use postcards to
correspond with them versus the
inmate who can still use regular
paper to write. Now I am confused,
who is the inmate? Who was given
the right to violate my rights as an
outstanding citizen? Who pays their


taxes to fund.the jail in the first
place? Who is being investigated
by the FB.I.? It certainly is not me
and I am appalled that the local sher-
iff felt it necessary to punish every-
one in this community!
It is not a policy in every county
or state prison so why.is it a policy
in Nassau County? I am sure this
was a financial decision on the coun-
ty's behalf but it is not a fair decision
to take away the rights of the citi-
zens. It is not your decision to incur,
extra costs for a postcard that is 5-
10 times more expensive and more
difficult to find in stores than a piece
of notebook paper. It is difficult
enough on a family with an inmate
at the local jail.so why make things
more difficult by instituting this pol-
icy and forcing even a bigger finan-
cial strain on this economy?
I understand that there is a con-
cern for contraband being submit-
ted to the jail via letters but-come.on,
Sheriff Seagraves not all of us
have that kind of mentality as a drug
smuggler. I have a bachelor's
degree but I am not an addict or
convict. I don't appreciate this fam-
ily, myself or any Nassau County
citizen being treated like one!

'40 days for life
Since the 1960's, many people
from around the world have sought
protection for sea turtles, now list-
ed as an endangered species. Here
in Florida, disturbing a sea turtle's
nest can lead to a $5,000 fine and/or
up to five years in prison. What is in
a sea turtle's nest, which is so "valu-
able" that a person could go to jail
for five years just for disturbing a
nest? Turtle eggs! What on earth is
in a turtle egg?
Be careful how you answer this
question as the next question is:
What is inside the womb of a preg-
nant woman? Did it ever cross your
mind that our society has enacted
serious penalties for harming a tur-
tle egg while at the same time ruled
killing an unborn baby is legal and
OK? I read a story about a woman
who owned beachfront property
and actively ran trespassers off her
property. One day the woman
noticed some stakes and caution
tape had been placed on her prop-
erty and, as she investigated,
noticed the newly (ldug sea turtle
nest. Of course, this woman did not
have the "right to choose," as she
pulled up the stakes and covered


up the hole in the sand on her.prop-
erty. The woman was handcuffed
and taken to jail.
I read some Internet discussions
regarding people being in support
of abortion but against the death
penalty. The most common argu-
ment was abortion is the right.of a
mother to choose and she did noth-
ing wrong, unlike the person on
death row. But what did the unborn
baby do wrong? I then recall the
couple of times I have read where a
pregnant mother may have been a
victim of a vehicular homicide or
shooting and the mother and her
unborn child were both killed. The
person responsible was charged
with two counts of homicide, not
just one. So the law understands
the unborn baby is, in this example,
more valuable than a turtle egg in a
nest.
In 1973, a Supreme Court deci-
sion we know as Roe v. Wade
became the basis for legalized abor-
tion. From 1973-2008 there have
been almost 50 million abortions
performed in our country. This
equates to well over a million babies
per year killed via abortion. To place
this into perspective, just one year
of abortions is akin to killing every
single person living in Duval
County. Does this make you want to
join with others in taking a stand
on this issue?
Sept. 28 begins the Forty Days
for Life Campaign, a focused pro-life
effort that consists of 40 days of
prayer, peaceful vigil and commu-
nity outreach. This campaign exists
throughout cities across the United
States and overseas. Think about
this very controversial issue of pro-
life vs. pro-choice. If you are reading
this, you most certainly may be
thankful your Mother was "pro-
choice."

Cost of sign
How much has it cost taxpayers
all of these months (I believe over
a year) for the signs at the base of
the Shave bridge saying, "Caution,
Work Under Bridge"? Are we sup-
posed to drive differently because of
them? If you do go under the bridge
by boat, there is no warning of the
construction, at least that I have
seen.

WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 7.2011 NEWS News-Leader


Rescuing beach babies


It started out tor m e as a rou-
tine walk on the beach at dawn,
this time starting at Main Beach
and heading north before the
sun hit the horizon. Even
though the hoour was early, this
is a popular stretch of our coast-
line for visitors and locals alike,
and people were already out
walking and shell-collecting.
With the aftermath of Hurricane
Irene, there were still some
good I)ickings to be had.
By now I had gathered all the
new shell trophies that I was
interested in and it would take
something very .exciting to
catch my eye. But sure enough,
something did. Whatthe heck is
that bright, almost iridescent,
orange shell? I picked it up, a
small gastropod about two inch-
es long and noticed right off that
it was still alive.
Now, normally I immediately
toss a live mollusk back into the
sea, much preferring to "rescue"
' it than to have it nauseatingly rot
on my back deck. But this shell
was something else! I've never
seen a seashell so orange, so
bright, like a gem of the sea.
Maybe I could bury it in the
ground or -.o. i1Hii,. let the
ants clean it, and then add it to
my .I.. ib L i ,
So against my purer instincts,
I kept it and before long I found
another live one too, to add to
my pocket. But despite their
small size, these live shells were
weighing on my mind. And then
I got it! I'll keep them alive and
give them to Kayak Amelia to
put in their live saltwater tank.
Perfect! Then others can enjoy
the beauty of these amazing-
orange bits of life, so extraordi-
nary, especially alive! But my
ay was already fully scheduled.
low would I afford the time to
get down the road to them and


Back, all in this
busy day
ahead of me?
So I pondered
this question,
shells in my
pocket, walk-
ing down the
beach.
Eventually
WILD my feet carried
WAYS me to the end
of the Fort
'Clinch fishing
Paz pier. I walked
Foster-Turley the boardwalk
alone with my
thoughts I was too early even
for the regular fishermen to join
me there. But look, there's
someone'else coming down the
beach! It's the State Park beach
patrol vehicle, checking the tur-
tle nests. As I got nearer I saw .
that my friend Sandra Baker-
Hinton was behind the wheel.
She recognized me, too, peering
over the railing of the pier and
waved me down to join her.
Sandra was eager to show
me what she was up to. A hatch-
ling sea turtle that had been
found earlier in the morning
confused and nearly motionless
was now safely installed in her
green tub of sand, awaiting a lift
to the surf. So with.me as the
only witness, Sandra set the
baby turtle on the sand, and we
two watched it perk up at the
realization of the sea close by
and head off to its new life in the
water.
I couldn't wait to show
Sandra my find, too, those two
bright orange seashells hidden
in my pocket. I put them back
on the wet sand to moisten*
them, and so that Sandra and I
could both' take photos. I told
her of my plan to take them to
Kayak Amelia, and my time con-,


straints. And as luck would have
it, Sandra had more time in her
day, and offered to take them
there herself. Great two more
sea babies saved by Sandra that
day. And my own conscience
now was guilt-free and I could
tend to the other work the day
had before me.
Back at my home I tried to
figure out what the heck those
shells were, and through
Internet searches and an emai
exchange with my friend Dr.
Fred Thompson, a malacologist
at the University of Florida, I
pinned it down to a juvenile
horse conch, the State Shell of
Florida!
These small shells will even-
tually grow to be up to 24 inches
long, one of the largest snails in
the world.-As they grow, they
will turn brownish and retain
the bright orange color only on
their operculum the closing
segment of their body. Who
would have guessed that they
are so beautiful as babies!
If you want to see these
snails alive, head down to Kayak
Amelia down in Little Talbot
Island State Park on AlA and
check out the saltwater tank.
These snails are voracious feed-
ers and eat other snails, so they
probably won't be welcome in
this tank for very long, so you'd
better hurry.
Sometime way before they
reach two feet long these horse
conchs will again be released to
the sea, but not before all of us
have a chance to admire them
close up, another wonder of
nature right in our own back-
yard.

Seniors vs Crime

A Special Project of the Florida Attorney General




Scam of the Week:



classic Ponzi scheme


The publicity surrounding
the conviction of former stock-
broker and investment advisor
Bernie Madoff brought to light
an old scam. called a Ponzi
scheme. Named after Charles
Ponzi, who was infamous for
using this scam technique in
1920, the scam takes money
froin investors and uses it to
support payments to early
investors and the scammner. In
other words, it represents a
fraudulent business that pays
returns to some investors but
not from the profits of the com-
pany. The lucky ones that
receive money back get either
some of their own money
returned or.monieylhat belongs,
to-later investors.
Out of the 43 total cases the
local Seniors vs Crime office
has handled, one in particular
resembled the classic Ponzi
scheme. A distinguished elder-
ly gentleman contacted our
office one day and told us that
he had lost $100,000 of his
retirement money in a bad
investment. His son had con-
vinced him that the investment
was-a sound one. When we
interviewed the son, he told us
that he had indeed made a 50

percent return on his invest-
ment. He also claimed to be a
good friend of the executive of
the company. When the father
first visited the investment com-
pany's office in Orlando, he was
impressed with its office on one
of the top floors of a new high
rise. And the rate of return
promised on his $100,000 was
very impressive as well; after
12 weeks the investment would
be worth $1.775 million.
That. claim should remind
you of the old adage, "If it
sounds too good to be true, it is
neither good nor true." Well, it
was too good to be true and now .
two years after the original
investment it appears the entire
$100,000 was lost. A visit to the
Orlando company early this
year by the elderly gentleman
found the fancy high-rise office
closed and the business relo-
cated to a dilapidated.house.
Seniors vs Crime did find out
that the money lost in this case
probably was packaged with
other victims' savings and sent
to. a European bank. After
laundering, the "investment
monies" were returned to an
account in another bank in
South filorida. The other reve-
lation was that no real invest-
ments had been made in this
large, complicated Ponzi
scheme. Both the Florida
Department of Financial
Services and the U.S. Secret
Service were contacted on
behalf of our client. So far no
money has'been recovered.
To avoid becoming a victim
of a Ponzi scheme such as the
one described here, make sure
your financial investments are
made with a licensed and reg-


istered broker. Do not partici-
pate in any business investment
that offers completely unrealis-
tic returns. The example we
cited promised a return of
almost 50 percent after only one
week and over 100 percent after
one month. If you are told you
can make even more money by
reinvesting the interest you
earn, that should raise a red
flag. If the business investment

This was written by Garrett
Pelican and Angela Daughtry of
the News-Leader from oral and
written reports by the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office and the
city ofFernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.
Arrest indicates suspicion of a
crime, not guilt.

tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,

Homicide charge
Larry Dean Brooker, 38, of
Green Cove Springs was arrest-
ed Aug. 30 on a charge of vehic-
ular homicide in a Hilliard acci-
dent. Bond was set at $100,002.
Brooker was driving about
'1:50 a.m. April 8 southbound
on US 1, approaching the inter-
section of CR 108, when his
vehicle crashed into another
traveling eastbound on CR 108.
Police said Brooker was trav-
eling at 70 miles per hour just
before impact the posted
speed limit there is 35 miles
per hour and the victim's vehi-
cle had the green light. A blood


test revealed Zolpidem
(Ambien) was in Brooker's sys-
tem at the time of the accident.
Pearl Andrews Simmons,
77, of Hilliard died in the crash.

Kidnap attempt
A 23-year-old Jacksonville
woman was almost kidnapped
by a group of men in a car while
she walked alone on North
Ninth Street on Aug. 31, accord-
ing to a Fernandina Beach
Police report.
The report states the
woman was walking from
downtown to a friend's moth-
er's residence on North 15th
Street after midnight. As she
began to walk east on Alachua
Street, she noticed an older
white Lincoln Town Car occu-
pied by four men circling the
area.
The woman told police the
car eventually pulled up beside
her at the intersection of North
Ninth and Alachua streets and
a man in the left rear seat tried
to pull her inside. She freed
herself, the report states, but
her shirt was ripped in the.
front.
The woman then ran to the
Nassau County School Board
building at 1201 Atlantic Ave.
where she hid and. called
friends on her cell phone. The
friends called police.


The victim said one oL the
men was wearing a blue base-
ball cap, but she was unable to
provide any other information,
according to the report. Police
issued a lookout for the vehicle
and took the victim's torn shirt
as evidence.

Stun gun threatened
A off-duty deputy working
at a downtown bar brandished
his stun gun and arrested an
Illinois man after the latter
exposed himself while attempt-
ing to urinate in public early
Sunday morning, according to
a Nassau County Sheriff's
Office report.
Standing on the corner of
North Second and Centre'
streets around 2:30 a.m., the
man was attempting to urinate
when the deputy approached
him, identified himself and
placed the man under arrest,
according to the report.
The man reportedly stated
he had done nothing wrong and
pulled his arm from the
deputy's grip. The deputy then
took out his stun gun and the
man complied with orders and
was arrested, the report states.
Andrew John Ferrara, 27, of
Chicago, was charged with
breach of peace and resisting
arrest without violence, both
misdemeanors, and taken to


the Nassau County Jail.

ing a car that was reported
stolen, according to a report.

car being stolen from the Pecan
Park Flea Market in
Jacksonville, according to the

US 17, where he began walking

but not to stealing it, accord-
ing to the report. The steering

Drought conditions persist despite recent rains


Drought conditions persist
and the risk of wildfire remains
high despite recent rains in
Nassau County.
I'he Keetch-Byram Drought
Index, a continuous reference
scale for estimating the dryness
of the soil and duff layers, was at
581 on Tuesday. The normal
level for summer in North
Florida is between 301 and 500.
That keeps the fire danger
moderate, according to the state
Division of Wildlife.
There have been 4,351 wild-
fires that have burned 213,794
acres statewide since Jan. 1. In
the Jacksonville district (Nassau,
Duval and Clay counties) a total
of 250 wildfires have burned
2103.3 acres.
Those included a fire that
burned 1.5 acres on Kings Ferry
Road and Tacoma Trail on
Saturday.
In Tallahassee, the Southeast
Climate Consortium, which


includes Florida State
University, and the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Association (NOAA) have
issued a La Nifia watch, mean-
ing it is more likely than not that
La Niia will redevelop in the
Pacific Ocean in the next one to
three months.
La Nifna refers to a state of
the tropical Pacific Ocean in
which surface temperatures
along the equator from South
America to the central Pacific
. turn colder than normal. La
Nifia can be thought of as the
opposite of El Niflo, in which
the same area of the Pacific is
much warmer than normal.
La Nifia typically brings fall
and winter weather patterns to
parts of the Southeast that are
warmer and drier than normal.
Historically, the peninsula of
Florida averages rainfall 40 per-
cent to 60 percent below nor-
mal in the months of November


through March during La Nifia
events. Temperatures over the
entire area average 3-4 degrees
warmer than normal. The onset
of warm and dry conditions nor-
mally begins in September, and
the pattern intensifies as the sea-
son progresses.
"Last year, the Pacific Ocean
slipped into one of the strongest
La Nifias on record and was a
key trigger for the development
of drought in Florida and the
Southeast as well as unprece-
dented drought in Texas and
Oklahoma," said David Zierden,
the state climatologist of Florida
and an associate in research at
FSU's Center for Ocean-
Atmospheric Prediction Studies.
Historically, there is a ten-
dency for strong La Nifia events
to last for two or more years.
More recently, ocean tempera-
tures along with wind -and
.cloudiness patterns over the
Pacific are indicating that the
I, i


redevelopment of the cold water
is likely after a summer of neu-
tral conditions.
Crops in parts of the
Southeast were already suffer-
ing from extremely dry and hot
conditions earlier this summer.
The three-month period of April
through June was the driest on
record since 1895 for the west-
ern Florida Panhandle and
southern Georgia; while June
ranked as one of the warmest on
record. Southern Alabama,
southern Georgia and the west-
ern Florida Panhandle are des-
ignated as experiencing mod-
erate to severe drought,
according to the U.S. Drought
Monitor.
The expected .dry pattern
could prolong or even worsen
the widespread drought affect-
ingtheregion. P,. i .i *.:111
in rainfall during the winter in
these areas can be critical, as
winter is the primary recharge


season for surface and ground-
water.
Farther south, the water
level in Lake Okeechobee is still
well below normal and has little
chance to recover during what is
left of the summer rainy season.
According to Geoff Shaugh-
nessy, meteorologist with the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District: "There is only
about a 10 percent chance of the
lake recovering this season, and
that would only be in the event
of one or more tropical sys-
tems."
' The impact of La Nifia is
already being seen in the
Atlantic hurricane season. The
state of the Pacific Ocean is a
primary factor in seasonal hur-
ricane forecasts from the
National Oceanic and Atmos-
pheric Administration, Colorado
State University and FSU. The
La Nifia phase has been shown
to lead to more active hurricane


seasons. La Ninfa tends to favor
hurricane paths that curve
northward and threaten the East
Coast of the United States.
La Nifia also brings the
potential for a very active wild-
fire season to the state of
Florida. Acreage burned is often
more than double the average in
La Nifiayears, as was seen in the
active seasons of 1998 and 2001.
Warmer temperatures may
. slow the necessary chill accu-
mulation in flowering fruits such
as blueberries, peaches and
strawberries but may enhance
development of other crops. The
forecasted warm and dry con-
ditions are unfavorable for the
production of winter forage for
cattle when irrigation is not avail-
able. While mild freezes can be
expected every year in North
and Central Florida, La Nifia
reduces the risk of severe
freezes in the citrus and veg-
etable belts.

Hornets, Pirates drop 2011 season o


Yulee at Buford,

FBHS travels to

Keystone Friday
BETH JONES
News-Leader

The 2011 season opened
Friday for both the Yulee
Hornets and the Fernandina
Beach Pirates and both suf-
fered losses.
Yulee hosted Gainesville
High School and fell 35-20.
Fernandina Beach was at
home with Union County, a
29-3 victor over its host.
'Tough loss," said Bobby
Ramsay, head football coach
for Yulee. 'The kids fought
hard against a team that was
one win away from the 4A
state title. We had a lot of kids
step up and play well; we just
needed a few more guys to
play their best game.
"We had chances several
times to get control of the
game or take the lead and
Gainesville made plays on
defense. We're definitely bet-
ter for playing that game. It
will pay out for us later in the
year."
Derrick Henry led Yulee
with 181 yards on 32 carries
and a pair of touchdowns.
Zack Camp reeled in three
passes for 79 yards and
another Hornet score.
Chris Murdock steered
the Hornet defense with 10
tackles. Taylor-Foote and
Brady Acosta had eight stops
apiece and Foote forced a
fumble. Brycen Gagnon had
seven tackles and Camp
recorded five.
"Friday's loss is on me,"
said first-year FBHS head
coach Travis Hodge. "I didn't
prepare my team the way I
should have.
"Our kids.played extreme-
ly hard, which I am very
proud of. Offensively we were
a block or a cut away from
some big plays, but again
that's on me. We will get
those things corrected this
week.
"Defensively we had some
alignment problems that real-
ly hurt us. But the thing I am
most proud of is that our
young men did not quit and
they kept playing."
Trailing 12-0 in the second
quarter but driving to the end
zone, a Pirate run was negat-
ed by a penalty.
"That play really hurt us,"
Hodge said. "Also the touch-
down and two-point conver-
sion right at the half was a
huge blow.
"But even down 20-0, we
fought back in the second
half."
Devon Lendry's field goal
provided the Pirates' lone
points of the night.
"Then our defense
responded with a fumble
recovery," Hodge said. "We
were a block and a cut away
from from scoring, which
would have made it a 10-point
game in the middle of the
third. But we didn't execute
and Union County did.
"We really grew up though
as a program. I will look in
the mirror and see where I
can improve as a head coach
and I know my staff and my
boysivill do the same. We are
doing the right things; we just
have to keep working every
day to get better."
The Pirates head to
Keystone Heights Friday.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
"We will be better this
Friday than we were last
Friday and we will be a foot-
ball team that gets better

FBMS Pirates open '11 season with 28-8 win over Hilliard Flashes


Fernandina Beach Middle School
kicked off the 2011 season in
Hilliard Thursday night, coming
away with a 28-8 victory.
"The boys were excited to go
against someone new," FBMS Coach
Cam Harrison said. "We've been hit-
ting each other for so long they were
ready for an opponent."
The FBMS Pirates got on the
board first when Hilliard's punter
mishandled a snap that was recov-
ered byTyreke Hubbard in the end
zone for a touchdown. After a failed
extra point attempt, the Pirates led 6-
0.
lHubbard was able to find the end


zone again for the Pirates, this time
on the receiving end of a 32-yard
pass from Will Mitchell. A success-
ful conversion pushed the Pirale
lead to 14-0.
Max Jones intercepted a Flashes
pass on the next possession, putting
the Pirates back on the offensive.
Mitchell scored the Pirates' third
touchdown of the half and the two-
point conversion gave FBMS a 22-0
lead at halftime.
Alex Torres scored the final
touchdown of the night for the
Pirates on a 27-yard run in the third
quarter, extending the lead to 28-0)
before Hilliard responded in the


fourth with a 65-yard touchdown
pass.
IDylan Jausel recovered the enslu-
ing onside kick and Hilliard was
unable to itnuster ally more ploinls.
' "It was a good first gamee"
I larrisoh said. F'-. i$i'. who
dressed for lihe game was able to get
in and see' some action. We're happy
to get this first win under our belIts

OUTDOORS


WY/I SDAY, Si I I.:P' 13I: 7 ,2011/Ni.WS-Li.ADER


Flounder, bass and grouper at reefs


Capt. Terry D. Lacoss
nearly knocked me
over at the
Fernandina Harbor
docks, rushing to toss his
eight-foot cast net over a
school of finger mullet
jammed against a steep
breakwater. A perfect toss of
his net pro-
cduced
enough live
finger mullet
f Tor a morn-
: ing of drift
r fishing at
Amelia
/ Island's
many
OUTDOORS nearshore
fish havens.
It was late
Terry Lacoss August, not
the best time of year for bot-
tom fishing, however cold
water temperatures early in
the summer fishing season
had kept many bottom-feed-
ing species hanging around
for the summer fishing sea-
son.
Fortunately, there are a
few fishing benefits when
cold water temperatures per-
sist through the warm sum-
mer months. Bottom species
simply love cooler water tem-
peratures and often delay
their migration to deeper
water depths, where they
relocate to a more suitable
comfort zone.
"Hey, Terry, do you think
the bottom fish will be biting
today? It's only been a couple
of days since Hurricane Irene
passed us offshore," Scott
Hood said.
"The seas may be a little
bumpy this morning due to
the storm, but the fishing
should be good," I replied.
"Bottom fish simply love
rough seas; the washing
machine effect stirs up the
bottom, making feeding
much easier for a wide variety
of bottom species, particular-
ly gag grouper."
Also fishing aboard our 32-
foot Topaz were Amelia
Island Plantation fish club
members Roger Lundborg,
Bill Brumund, Paul Braeger,
John Stevenson and Bob
Kessinger. This was our fish
club's annual summer fishing
trip and we normally target
striking fish, including king-
fish and cobia.
Navigating into the open
ocean from the protection of
the large St. Marys jetty
rocks, large swells rolled
against the bow of our sport
fishing boat. Seas were fish-
able so we continued to FA
fish haven and anchored over
a large lime rock ledge.
Barbed finger mullet and
fresh local squid were barbed
to No. 6-0 saltwater hooks
and sent deep to the bottom
with the aid of six-ounce led
weights.
It wasn't long before fish-
ermen were setting their
sharp hooks into a variety of
excellent eating bottom
species. Lundborg was the
first fisherman to hook into a
good-size bottom fish and
reeled hard to keep his
hooked fish from tangling
into the sharp rock ledge
below.
"Keep your rod tip up,"
Lacoss encouraged. 'This big
fish may well be dinner
tonight."
Lundborg, having had pre-
vious experience in Amelia
Island bottom fishing, knew
first-hand that dropping the
rod tip to capture a better
angle with his hooked fish
would also mean losing his
fish in the ledge below.

Rowdy Portier and David Chaney fished with Capt. Cris Holland recently aboard the
charter boat "Misti J.ynn." The beautiful sailfish was photographed and released.

TERRY IACOSS/SPECIAL
Black sea bass have been running larger than usual this
summer at offshore fish havens. Scott Hood, above, is
pictured with a keeper. Gag grouper weighing to 20
pounds are running at Schultz's Seafood Market. Bill
Brumund, left on left, landed this nice gag grouper while
fishing with Capt. Terry D. Lacoss. Below, Roger
Lundborg fished dead on the bottom with a finger mullet
and landed a beautiful six-pound summer flounder at FA
fish haven.



i h


Capt. Danny Flynn prepares to release the tarpon Stephen Deucker fought more than an hour. The fishing party hooked some 10 tarpon at the St.
Marys jetties. Flynn estimated Deudker's tarpon weighed over 200 pounds. Matthew Roberts, 16, of Barrington, R.I., right on right, caught this
trophy redfish while fishing with Flynn. Roberts is the grandson of Marilyn and Jerry Roberts of Fernandina Beach.


Luckily Lundborg skillfully
worked a nice six-pound sum-
mer flounder to the surface,
guaranteeing a delicious din-,
ner would be enjoyed that ,
evening.
Sea bass though were
headlining the fishing action
at FA fish haven and, before
long, the large cooler was
chock full of keeper-size black
sea bass. Sea bass must meas-
ure at least 12 inches with a
daily bag limit of 15 per per-
son..
Braeger hooked into a
large reef shark arid, for a


fleeting .... ,.lI. all onboard
thought a large gag grouper
was on the menu.
Minutes later, Kessinger
(lid hook a-keeper gag
grouper and strained while
reeling his big fish off the
snags below. Suddenly the
fish stopped fighting and
came without a struggle to
the surface. Apparently a
large barracuda had bitten
Kessinger's grouper just
ahead of the tail, leaving the
grouper without a tail or fight.
, Just before noon, the seas
had completely lain down as


predicted and Hurricane
Irene was unfortunately ham-
mering the, northeast portion
of the east coast. With calm
seas, we navigated to the
southern end of Amelia Island
and fished just five miles
directly east of Omni Amelia
Island Plantation at Schultz's
Fish Market.:
Once again fresh squid
and finger mullet were
dropped deep to the lime rock
bottom in hopes of ending a
perfect day of Amelia Island
bottom fishing.
Brumund proved to be the


perfect angler and soon boat-
ed a perfect 15-pound gag
grouper. Several more keep-
er-size sea bass were also
boated.
While most fishermen
hope for calm seas and clean
water conditions, fishing in
the wake of mad Hurricane
Irene proved to be a big suc-
cess.
Red bass fishermen will
find a perfect tide this week-
end with an early morning
flood tide. Capt. Adam Loud
has been doing i1. II. well
while redfishing in the flood-


ed marshes in recent days.
Flood tide arrives at the
mouth of the Amelia River
Saturday at 7:23 a.m.
Best lures include 1/4-
ounce gold spoons or black
plastic baits rigged weedless.
Best baits include blue crab,
cut chunks of ladyfish or mul-
let.
Capt. Danny Flynn is
doing really well with tarpon
wliil; fishing at the ocean side
of the St. Marys jetty rocks
during the incoming tide.
Best tarpon baits include live
mulletand m'nhaden.

A grandmother's gift inspires


Like many wonderful grandparents,
Barbara Schuster enjoys having her grand-
children. Fortunate to live in an active and
thriving beach community, Schuster pro-
vides not only the joy of family but also vari-
ous activities for her visiting teenage grand-
children.
Two years ago Paul Otto, Peasley Middle
School's music teacher in Gloucester, Va.,
where Schuster's granddaughter Jacqueline
was a student, suggested that Jackie take
private music lessons. Previously, Jacqueline
had auditioned and made their District
Chorus. Loving to sing and wanting to pur-
sue her musical talents, she asked if she
could study piano and voice during her sum-
mer stay. Like her grandmother, Jackie
enjoys Broadway musicals and musical the-
ater. The two of them have enjoyed the city
Parks and Recreation Department trips to
see Jacksonville performances.
Last year Schuster contacted the Amelia
Arts Academy. Jackie began studying voice
and piano with Emma Mills Bledsoe and-
Jackie's brother Erik began studying trom-
bone with Amy Scott. Returning to the
island this summer, Jackie's studies focused
primarily on voice performance. Working on
songs from "Wicked," "The Secret Garden,"
"Cats" and "Phantom of the Opera," Jackie
gave a vocal recital on Aug. 11.
The recital was given as a thank you for
providing lessons. Family members as well
as the academy's Board President Jane
Lindberg, her husband Bob, board member


SUBMITTED
Barbara Schuster of Amelia Island with
granddaughter Jacqueline of Virginia.

Mack Sisson and his wife Janet, and Theresa
Duncan, the academy's executive assistant,
and her son Adrian enjoyed a program of
these selected Broadway songs.
Returning to Virginia to begin high
school, Jackie is now studying with Sherri
Rodgers. Summer memories made on this
island become timeless and this gift of
music will continue to give.
