Yulee


mourns

death

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Yulee High School sophomore
Jessica West was remembered as, a
"precious soul that we're going to
miss" as her fellow students and the
community struggled to come to grips
with her death last week.
In the wake of the tragedy, Yulee
'High School provided students with
grief assistance frbm its guidance coun-
l t1.:i5 and experts from Suitton Place
.Behaviqral Health, Inc., a local not-for-
' li. -iia genc.% The school has enlisted
the help of its-peer mediation club for
those more comfortable speaking with
other students.
Yulee High School Principal
DeArmas Graham said the counselors
would be made available indefinitely -
"as long as the students need them."
'This is a tragic loss for her family,"
Graham said. "My thoughts and
prayers go out to her family, her mom
and her father and the students at
Yulee High School."
Graham described West, 15, as an
exceptional student and popular. "She's
well-liked among her peers, she's
respected apd she's a precious soul
that we're going to miss," he said.
West enjoyed activities including
softball, riding her four-wheeler and
cooking and was an avid Georgia
Bulldogs fan who wasn't afraid to speak
her mind.
This was apparent in an entry on
her Myspace page this summer, where
West wrote, "I have a lot of friends but
onI- -ui.- Ij i i'ally u tus I love boatin,.
muddin, fishing and jumpin off the dock
at the creek. I was raised to stick up for
myself and don't let people cut me
down. I'm always up for meeting new
people. Well, that's me!"
In a poignant message given her
suicide, West wrote, "Don't laugh at
me; don't call me names; don't get
pleasure from my pain; in God's eyes
we're all the same; some day we'll all
have perfect wings."
To honor West's memory, the
Fellowship of Christian Athletes club
at Yulee Middle School is selling rib-
bons for $1 each. Half of the proceeds
generated will go to West's family and
the remainder will be donated to a
charity for recipients of organ dona-

Graham said the entire school is
mourning the death of West. "First, I
think we have to go through the steps
and grieve," he said. "Right now (stu-
dents) are shocked. ...We're going to
miss her, butwe're going to keep pray-
ing for her family and her friends. ... At
Yulee High School we're like one big
family. We come together during tough
times like this."
On the social network Facebook
just hours after her death, friends and
even strangers began posting mes-
sages of condolence on a page dedi-
cated to West's memory.
Kayleigh Soltis wrote, "Last night I
drove by all the commotion, and was
clueless, I saw you as you laid on the
stretcher and got put in the life flight
and watched it take off, I wish I known
then what was happening.... You
touched many hearts, brought many
smiles and laughs and left footprints in
many peoples hearts... You will never
be forgotten. My prayers go out to the
West Family."
Yulee Middle student Addie Lane
Hamilton, a member of the Fellowship
of Christian Athletes, wrote, "Jessica,
you will be missed so so much. I know
that everyone in this town is grieving
for you. But we know your in a better
place now. I'm so so sorry that this is
the outcome of what happened. I know
how it feels to be alone in the world. &
No one, NO ONE should ever go
through with what happened. I'm pray-
ing for your family. & Most of us will try'


to keep our heads high, Even though
we lost you. We love you forever and
always, and we'll never forget you."
The incident has shaken parents,
too, as Kristy Lockwood wrote, "Iwould
just like to say first that my prayers go
out to Jessica's family and friends. As
a mother I can't even imagine what its
like to lose a child especially in such a
tragic way! To all the young ppl posting
on this page I would just like to say
that I hope this opens your eyes and
hearts and makes you think twice
about what you say and do and how you
treat ppl."
Tina Taney posted this note, "My
sincere heartfelt condolences go out to
her family and friends. Praying God
will give you the strength to go on, and
know that she is now an Angel looking
down on you. Please kids, turn this
tragic loss into a positive and think
twice on how you treat people and what
you say or do. Every one has some
type of issue, no one should judge!
May you Rest in Peace Jessica."
West was pronounced dead at 12:03
.a.m. Friday at Shands Jacksonville after
being found in her home by her father,
police said. She died of an apparently
self-inflicted gunshot wound to the
head. There were no indications of foul
play, Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said.
West is survived by her parents,
Billy and Diana West, sister Ciera West,
all of Fernandina Beach, and brothers
Brandon Lipe of Yulee and Aaron West
of South Carolina. Funeral services
were held Tuesday in the Burgess
Chapel of Oxley-Heard.

TURTLES
Continued from LA
ed by the B&B's outdoor light-
ing. Another 49 hatchlings
were found alive on the patio
of the building and returned
to the water. But because sea
turtle hatchlings are so fragile,
Forstrom said, chances are
slim that many survived.
The city's Land
Development Code states that
"no artificial public or private
light source shall directly illu-
minate areas seaward of the
primary dune (called 'beach
areas') where it may deter
adult female sea turtles from
nesting or disorient hatch-
lings."
Forstrom said the B&B's
lighting violation was first dis-
covered during a code
enforcement beach lighting
survey in August.
According to Forstrom,
Martinez at first changed the
porch lights to comply with
city codes and promised to
take care of the other outdoor
lights.
Florida Public Utilities also
turned off a streetlight on the
west side of South Fletcher
when a sea turtle nest was
found adjacent to the bed and
breakfast.
But apparently the B&B's
outdoor lights were left on
long enough to lure the sea
turtle hatchlings across the


road when they emerged from
their nest, Forstrom said.
'This (case) was different,
because all the outside lights
were on," Forstrom said,
including spotlights, neon
lights, string lights and park-
ing lot lights.
Forstrom wrote in an e-mail
that residents usually comply
with beach lighting and other
regulations, and that in the
last three years the.city has
issued only two notices of
hearing for beach lighting vio-
lations. In both cases, she
said, the violators came into
compliance before their hear-
ings with the Code
Enforcement & Appeals
Board.
According to the Amelia
Oceanfront Bed & Breakfast
websife, Gary Dodd, a busi-
nessman from South Georgia,
is a co-owner with Martinez
of the inn, which has six
rooms.
Martinez's hearing with
the Code Enforcement &
Appeals Board is scheduled
for Oct. 6 at 6 p.m. at City Hall,
204 Ash St.
Sea turtle nesting season
on Amelia Island is from May
to October.

Time to curb regulations


A proven recipe for sour-
ing the appetite of an upstart
economy contains two key
ingredients: raising taxes and
increasing regulations.
Currently, in the U.S., we
have a little and a lot of each.
A little in regard to higher
taxes (most of the increases
have been through expanded
fees and silent taxes). And a
- .- lot in terms
- .. of new regu-
lations. Quite
a lot.

start the economy and to get
businesses hiring again is td
remove the barriers present-
ed by a logjam of regulations.
Noted financial experts
such as Mario Gabelli are
drawing attention to this. In
an interview, Gabelli asserted
that it would be impossible to
start a thriving financial busi-
ness like his in today's envi-
ronment. Too much red tape.
Too much government inter-
vention. Too much uncertain-


The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of
2002 and the evolving Dodd-
Frank Consumer Protection
Act are providing bookends of
resistance to new and existing
businesses. In fact, the Dodd-
Frank bill is still being final-
ized. It was passed several
years ago, but the blanks in
the framework are now being
filled but with terms of uncer-
tainty.
One of the fastest-growing
banks in the U.S. with -
substantial presence in North


Florida is doing little right
now. A top representative said
the bank is "sitting on its
hands" and waiting for several
major regulations to be
spawned off of the Dodd-
Frank evolution. The bank is
servicing existing loans, but
offering few new ones.
Some regulation is neces-
sary to prevent another finan-
cial meltdown like in 2008.
But often, the pendulum
swings too far in the other
direction at a time when the
economy is struggling to
recover- from a major reces-
sion like the one we just had.
There are other instances
of increased regulation:
The National Labor
Relations Board's attempt to
block a non-unionized Boeing
plant from being built in
SSouth Carolina.
The federal Department
of Justice's opposition to
AT&T acquiring the T-Mobile
USA cellular division from
Deutsch Telecom. This is an
instance of a U.S. company
being prevented from acquir-
ing a foreign competitor
(while European companies
seem unhindered in acquiring
U.S. counterparts).
The federal government
lawsuit against 17 majot
banks for alleged misfeasance
during the sub-prime mort-
gage debacle of three years
ago.
And you wonder why large
and smrll companies alike are
not hiring? The U.S. Chamber
of Commerce had a targeted
response to the Obama jobs
plan and other anti-business
actions: Curb new i-egulations
(such as those steeped in the
new healthcare regulations).
Like him or not, Florida
Gov. Rick Scott tabled any
new regulations upon taking
office, and ordered a review
of existing ones especially
those that pertain to the econ-
omy and much-needed job
growth. Sounds like a recipe
for growth, not disaster.
Maybe the pendulum is
ready to swing to at least a
more-neutral position.

advisor with a major Wall

HEATHER. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
Anthony Testa adjusts a hunting bow display at Yulee
Pawn and Collectibles on US 17 South.



Hes pawn star



of Yulee at 23


HEATHER. PERRY
News Leader
Not many 23-year-olds
know the difference between
Waterford crystal and ordinary
glass, but Anthony Testa
knows that and a whole lot
more, thanks to the careful
tutelage of his mother, Cathy
VanZeeland.
"I've been going to yard
sales with my mother since I
was just a little guy. Every time
she saw something valuable,
she'd teach me about it."
VanZeeland was an avid
buyer and seller of gently used
merchandise at flea-market
venues and on eBay, for about
10 years in Melbourne before
moving to Yulee in 1992.
As co-owner of Yulee Pawn
and Collectibles on US 17,
Testa is realizing a lifelong
ambition.
"I've always wanted to have
a pawn shop so to be here now
doing this at my age, I'm pret-'
ty happy."
In addition to running the
pawnshop, Testa goes out on
-service calls for the fainily's
heating and air conditioning
repair business.
"I've been doing that since
I was about 12 or 13 so it's just
part of who I am," he said.
Yulee Pawn and
Collectibles sells gently used
items such as clothing, jewelry,
antiques, books, movies, col-


lectibles, glassware, tools and
electronics.
Testa offers consignment
on some high-end items with
approval and the store also has
a layaway program.
Browsers will find a variety
of Army surplus items as well
as hunting and fishing sup-
plies.
"We're also licensed to sell
firearms and ammunition and
we have everything from hand-
guns to rifles," said Testa.
But its the pawn part of the
shop that provides the most
entertainment.
"People have brought in
some of the strangest items!"
said Testa, including an elk's
head that took up the better
part of one wall.
"Someone came in and
tried to pawn a dog once, a pit
.bull. The dog was valuable but
we had no idea where we
could put it," said brother
Michael, who also works in the.
shop.
Leisure activities for the
young bachelor include shoot-
ing, fishing, hunting and
spending time with friends and
family.
Yulee Pawn and,
Collectibles, is located at
850497 US 17 South. Business'
hours are 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-7

Angels among us


Lots of people out there
believe in angels, those har-
bingers of good fortune who
live unnoticed among us.
Well, now I'm beginning to
see how this works.
I was walking my usual
stretch of dawn beach during
the holiday weekend, happily
greeting the other early ris-
ers, some my friends, some
tourists, some with dogs,
some with children, all there
enjoying the start of the day
with me. On Labor Day
Monday the beach was
already well occupied even
before the sun came up.
This day was different,
though. Finally, at long last, it
seemed like people were actu-
ally finding fossilized shark
teeth. For months now, years
actually, it has seemed to me
that hallmarks of our beach
have been becoming scarcer
than hen's teeth, so to speak.
It's been ages since I've found
a shark tooth myself.
Admittedly, I'm usually so
busy talking and gawking that
I'm not dedicated to the task.
And, admittedly, I'm older
now, just maybe my vision
isn't so good anymore, even
with the current prescription
glasses I wear.
Other people I chat with
on the beach have noticed
this too. We all are older than
we were (who isn't?) but it
seems unlikely that the lack
of sharks teeth is all due to
aged vision syndrome. Like
'any other resource just
maybe this one has been
overexploited over the years
with more and more people
out looking for shark teeth,
and less and less of them
remaining to be found.
But this day, at last, people
seemed to be finding them.
Maybe this was an aftermath
of Hurricane Irene, or maybe
just more people were out
looking, in more creative

ways. but
whatever,
shark teeth
were there,
at least a few
of them.
One mlothte
and her
daughter at
dawn were
using a
flashlight to
spot the
shine of
shark's
teeth. Other
visitors were


walking slowly along the
beach in "shark-tooth-trance,"
head down, slow pace. totally
focused on the Zen of the
find.
As usual, no shark
teeth jumped to my attention,
but I had other things to
do, miles to walk to burn up
last night's dinner and lots of
people to interact with
along the way. One regular
beach-walker stopped me to
tell me that she had just seen
a large "fireball" from the sky,
heading towards someplace
on the island. A meteor,
maybe? I'll be curious to see if
any reports show up in the
paper.
Another walker along the
pedestrian trail on Amelia
Parkway warned me that just
ahead was a "huge snake"
and that she had put a branch
on the ground in front of it to
warn people. Seems like the
snake itself would be warning
enough, but whatever, I'm
just pleased she didn't want to
disturb it. I hurried on to pho-
tograph the snake, but by the
time I got there, it was long
gone.
On my way back up the
beach again I passed a
woman with a young boy and
overheard her explaining to
him that no, that was not a
shark tooth he had found, just


a shell fr-agtmnt. The boy was
not to be. detecrrled. iH ranr up
behind n ci as; kept walking
calling "Lady, lady, is this a
shark's tooth?" I stopped and
explained the difference to
him, but told him that no
doubt he would find one,
he was so low to the
ground, if he just kept look-
ing. "If you do find one,
you will have good luck all
day!" I added, just for good
measure.
Further down the beach I
spotted a man and an older
boy, looking for teeth them-
selves. I asked if they had any
and they dug into their pock-
ets to show me their finds.
And then I told them about
the boy a bit further clown the
beach, disappointed in his
own search.
Aha! An idea was formed.
From a distance I watched
this pair approach the young
boy and his parents, and soon
they were all walking togeth-
er in the same direction, back
the way the tooth-laden guys
had just walked. And, guess
what! The young boy stooped
down, picked something up
and excitedly showed every-
one!
Now, you know and I
know that the good
Samaritans dropped a few
teeth along the way, but what
the heck? The whole
encounter brought smiles to
all of us, and to everyone else
Shared it with further down
the beach. And all of us will
have good luck for a day, I'm
sure, just for being part of
this goodwill gesture.
Who says there aren't
angels on Earth? I just saw it
happen and I'm now a believ-
er! ,

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/JOE GERRrIY/FERNANDINA BLACI



City is catering to special interests


T here have been
some interesting
"noises" coming out
of City Hall lately,
and some of those noises
have caught my attention.
First of all, kudos to the rank
and file employees of the city
of Fernandina Beach for
telling it like it is in the recent
survey conducted by the city.
One thing I have learned
from my career as both an
employee and small business
owner is that no one likes to
work for or be identified with
a dysfunctional employer or
organization. It is a sad com-
mentary when the city
employees have a better han-
dle on the state of the city


than either the city manager
or the city commissioners.
Another noise coming
from City Hall is the city com-
mission's concerns about
their "legacy." As far as I am
concerned, their legacy is
already set. It is a history of
increasing our tax rates for
the last four years. Their lega-
cy is one of refusing to hold
the city staff accountable for
the mismanagement of city
enterprise funds. Specifically
the back rents due at the
marina and the airport and
the subsequent management
privatization of the golf course
and the marina. The marina
contract was praised by the
commission as a wonderful

Not only been to North Beach Park,

ever drive down First Avenue
during a rainstorm prior to
2004? We had citizens that
could not get out of their
driveways because the flood-
TR ing was so bad. Not only was
TR the drainage addressed, but:
the road (both north and
uter south of Simmons Road) was
paved. That was a project that
was kicked around for 10
-.. years before it was complet-
ed, Where did the new irriga-


tion system at the golf course
come from? When I left the
commission in 2008, we had
just paid over $1 million for
beach restoration and left the
incoming commission with a
cushy $6 million in reserves.
How much is in that reserve
account today?
Did you ever lake a walk
on the Greenway? That is a
result of a previous commis-
sion and an active group of
citizens that campaigned hard
to secure the funding for the
purchase of those properties.
The commission voted to
place the $6 million bond
issue on the ballot and the
supporters of the Greenway
went to work to pass the ref-
erendum. Does this scenario
seem familiar to a present day
issue? The current commis-
sion needs to take a lesson
from previous commissions
and learn how to do the hard
work instead of the constant
bashing.
So this is your legacy:
Four consecutive years of tax
increases, ignoring the citi-
zens' right to determine if
they want to borrow funds to
restore buildings and improve
the waterfront downtown,
refusal to downsize staff to


reflect the decrease in
demand for services and lack
of accountability of city
employees at the expense of
city taxpayers. Ron Sapp calls
the disconnect between the
commission and their con-
stituents "gaps." I would call it

real unemployment rate is
near 20 percent, foreclosures

have doubled over the past
three years, this group wants
to whack us twice this year,
increasing the tax rate and
increasing our electric fran-
chise fees.
The voters have a big deci-
sion to make in November.
More of the same or do we
want change?

Post office, airport and election


The local political season is off to a fast
start with several would-be candidates pacing
the sidelines, nervously wondering whether or
not to get in the game. The voters seem ready
poised either to make a bold statement by
throwing the incumbents out, or to vote the
status quo, uneasy about the political climate
change that many say is sure to come.
This column is the first in a series that will
attempt to identify and discuss what I believe '
are both major and minor issues facing the
commission and, by extension, our community.
Note: major and minor issues are subjective, I
know; what is my major issue might be your
minor and vice versa, but here goes.
Major issue what's the future of the down-
town post office? Current commissioners seem
focused, like a proverbial laser beam, on pur-
chasing the building and -well, nobody seems
to know what comes next.
Citizens seem incredulous regarding the
purchase: Why have commissioners allocated
over $350,000 in this year's budget to "fix up"
the building's exterior? Why have commission-
ers allocated millions more in the capital
improvements plan? Why weren't citizens
allowed to vote on the Forward Fernandina
revenue bond issue? Why buy the building -
what are we going to do with it? What are the
annual operations and maintenance costs
going to be? If the city can't maintain its cur-
rent infrastructure, why add to the problem?
You've heard and read all this before, but now
incumbents are going to have to defend their
decision-making and challengers are going to
have to articulate plans of their own.
If the city doesn't buy the building, what's
going to happen to it? Whose responsibility is

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Ponyup'
Once again I realize how com-
pletely powerless the local resident is
in dealing with local politics. I was
shocked to receive my tax notice
recently and see that the assessor had
raised the market value of my home
from 2010 to 2011 by over 6 percent!
I called to inquire how this could be
in a recessed housing market where
homes in my neighborhood are actu-
ally selling for less than my 2010
appraisal. The answer I was given was
that they felt they had made a mistake
and had "undervalued" my home in
the previous appraisal just the year
before and that they needed to make a
"correction." They then went on to
compare the value of my home with
much larger homes in the develop'
ment behind me and the custom-built
homes in the neighborhood next to
me. I might also point out that du- to,
the e!tf.ct -,f the Save Our Homes
amendment I am already paying 150
percent of the taxes my neighbors are
paying!
It ii obvious to me that our politi-
cians care little about who has to pony
up the dollars to pay for their exces-
siveness. It is equally obvious that they
certainly have the wherewithal to find
ways to get those dollars from those of
us who pay the freight. It must be nice.

Fact check
I was appalled to read the cover
story in the Sept. 7 issue describing
John Elliott, a self-proclaimed U.S. State
Department and Mossad assassin cred-
ited with terminating hundreds of lives.
Did anyone try to confirm any of his
assertions?
Assassinations abroad are in con-
travention of U.S. and international
law. I do not mean to suggest that they
do -not happen clearly all of us
cheered when Osama bin Laden was
brought down. I do certainly mean to
suggest, though, that such actions
when taken are extraordinary and
extremely rare. To assert that a sin-
gle man was sent to murder suppos-
edly as many as 300 individuals is sim-
ply ludicrous.
Even if one were inclined to believe
him, you should question why the U.S.
government would ever allowthis indi-
vidual to write a book about his
exploits. Mr. Elliott suggests that he
had to wait until his "non-disclosure
oaths" had elapsed. Anyone who has
worked within the intelligence com-
munity knows that there is no such
thing. If Mr. Elliott worked ip clan-
destine operations, they would have
been classified, and he would have
been legally and morally bound to
remain fully silent until the govern-
ment declassified each and every event
(something that is not done routinely
and certainly not within 5-7 years).
Despite the multiple pages devoted
to this story, there is not a single indi-
cation that any attempt was made to val-
idate any of Mr. Elliott's assertions
something which, in this case, should
have been relatively straightforward.
An interview with a colleague who
knew Mr. Elliott or even a visit to a
shooting range to see if Mr. Elliott is
indeed a great shot would have helped
support the story. Did the editors ask
the State Department to confirm or
deny? Was anyone consulted Who is
familiar with the intelligence commu-
nity? How about even a cursory check
of his passport or tax returns? In fact,
I believe that any investigation at all
would have come up empty. Based on
the photographs printed in the paper I
fully believe he traveled widely and
was likely a pretty good shot. That is a
far cry from being a U.S. government-
sponsored assassin.
I hope the editors will be more care-
ful in the future to confirm the veraci-
ty of their stories, and fervently hope
that readers who might otherwise be


inclined to purchase his book look else-
where for their fantasy entertainment.
Better yet, perhaps I will write my own
book about my former life as a world-
renowned ballerina, opera star and
astronaut.

Grateful to police
I write to commend the Fernandina
Beach Police Department.
On the evening of June 10, my
wife's purse was stolen from under our
dining table at a local restaurant. Police
were called. Officer Josh Simmons
responded, investigated and made a
report He was very diligent, thorough
and professional.
The restaurant owner reviewed a
surveillance tape, in which our table
just happened to be in the "field of
view "-He ultimrlatdel,dcett-i mineid just
who bad "lifted th, p.rse, and .ne of
his employees identified the suspect.
That information, along with the tape,
was passed onto the Fernandina Beach
Police Department.
Detective Jon Hepler investigated
the case and, at the end of that process,
filed an arrest warrant. The suspect
was shortly determined to be living in
the Jacksonville area. Detective Hepler
contacted the Duval County Sheriff's
Department. He has since been ariest-
ed and charged.
From the outset and throughout
this entire process and ordeal, police
department personnel expressed
strong interest in solving the case and
were very helpful and responsive to.
my every inquiry. I could not be more
pleased or impressed.
I wish to commend and thank Chief
of Police James Hurley, Captain David
Bishop, Detective Hepler and officer
Simmons for their superb and suc-
cessful police work, which resulted in
this conviction and sentence. Without
their commitment and efforts, this case
would not have had a satisfactory out-
come. They and, by association, the
entire police department, in my view,
are very professional, diligent and capa-
ble. Our community is well served by
their efforts and I, for one, am partic-
ularly grateful.

Will be missed
For those not aware of the latest
downtown business closing, the second
one in not even a year.
First, the furniture/design shop on
Centre Street a few months ago had to
leave the area and close its doors. The
latest one to go and being forced to
close is much sadder for some who
became customers shortly after they
opened as the General Store located
in Don Shaw's new building next to
Peppers.
There are reasons apparent, and
the most obviouswould be lack of cus-
tomers in this unique all-purpose gen-
eral store and deli service with sever-
al hundreds of items for everyone to
purchase.
Besides the unique items sold in
the store, there was the friendly atmos-
phere and terrific employees working
there all of them deserved a better
fate. My wife and I always enjoyed
going in having a bite to eat or just cof-
fee and chatting with the employees.
They are and were a very good addi-
tion to the downtown business climate.
Because as we understand, few peo-
ple took advantage of stopping and
making purchases in this unique store
for its many items.
The food items on their menu were
inexpensive, satisfying and the chefs
were always coming up with many dif-
ferent items that they personally cre-
ated. The deli type food was missing in
the downtown area and was great to
see this come to downtown Fernandina
but now the city residents will have to
look elsewhere.


It is a sad day when this unique
style of business closes. I firmly believe
that too many people won't know what
a great place it was!
Gang, we will miss you all good
luck!

Recent visitor
My wife and I along with two
friends arrived in Fernandina Beach on
Sept. 5 and spent the next three days
with David and Julie Jones and our
grandchildren who are new residents
and who are in the process of opening
a bed and breakfast business there.
My purpose in writing to you is to
tell you what an enjoyable visit we had.
Certainly to crowd visiting with family
and exploring a previously unknown
part of our great country into three
days was daunting. The storied histo-
ry of the entire area and particularly
Fernandina Beach was extremely inter-
esting. One thing that intrigued me
was that at critical points in your his-
tory individuals with both a pioneering
spirit'and an entrepreneurial ability
seemed to emeltge and move history
forward.
As we visited in both the most
upscale and the most needy-commu-
nities I was struck with the notion that
Fernandina Beach and the surround-
ing island is in need of such leader-
ship in these days of weakened eco-
nomic conditions. Someone who would
find ways to encourage all the citizens
-to pull together in putting the best face
forward. Someone who would examine
business conditions to insure that reg-
ulations, permits and fees are designed
to facilitate new start-ups and business
growth rather than impeding them. It
seemed to me that you are indeed at a
critical point with little or no growth
and development ongoing. Maybe you
and your paper could be the impetus to
finding that-fresh spirit of adventure
and leadership. I encourage you in that
regard.
Thanks again for a great visit.

Federal budget
mythology
The boiling controversy about how
to balance the federal budget now
seems to have cooled to a simmer.
Conservatives still propose to reduce
spending for entitlements and social
programs while liberals insist that tax
revenue increases from corporations
and the wealthy are needed.
But oddly, no public figures talk
much about the biggest element of fed-
eral spending, namely: America's mil-
itary-related expense. Directly and indi-


rectly, our Army, Navy and Air Force
account for 50 percent of what the fed-
eral government spends each year.
It appears ridiculous to seriously
attempt to control federal spending
without a hard look at military expense.
Equally ridiculous is to suggest that
significant cuts in the so-called defense
budget can be achieved solely'by
improving efficiency and eliminating
waste. What is required is an apprais-
al of America's role as the purveyor of
peace to troubled nations and our
image as the best hope of people who
suffer the oppression of dictators. -
America's self-image as the cham-
pion of worldwide democracy dates
from the start of our entry in World
War II, some 70 years ago. This is a
splendid national goal but also an
expensive one.
If Americans believe we must do
all we can to help other nations become
truly free and democratic, in some
cases whether they want to or not, then
it is essential to stop mortgaging our
children's future to pay for it. There is
no rational choice but to raise suffi-
cient revenue from every segment of
our population to cover the cost now.
On the other hand if we, as a nation,
are unwilling to pay the bill in money
as we have apparently been willing to
pay the bill in blood, then our military
must be slashed to meet the basic need
of defending America and let the rest
of the world solve their age-old prob-
lems for themselves.
There are no easy choices if
America is to balance the federal budg-
et or even just significantly reduce the
annual deficit. We face a major problem
of national unemployment.
Less military spending means less
military employees and less employ-
ment in defense industry.
What i most clear is that attempt-
ing to balance the federal budget by
cutting only non-military programs and
keeping taxes unchanged is a nice-
sounding delusion.

Too much government?
The political mantra these days, at
least in parts of Nassau County, is that
government is too big and takes too
much of the financial pie. I've hal many
bones to pick with different levels of
political power over the years, some-
times letting them hear my issues out
loud. However, let's take a closer look
at some of the governmental funding
that the public doesn't gripe about.
When is the last time you heard or
read about a complaint by a recipient
of Medicare, especially for a costly pro-
cedure? How many folks are returning
their Social Security checks to Uncle
Sam as part of their principled out-
rage? How many employees, either


NATE BEELER/THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER

working or retired, are offended when
the "private" corporations they worked
for have accepted large financial con-
tracts from the government? How
many citizens refuse to collect their
government pensions? The list goes
on.
In Fernandina, we even have a com-
missioner who verbally bemoans the
evils of "too much government" while
simultaneously requesting pay raises
for his public government office?
According to a News-Leader report,
county planning board members have
been earning $1,800 a year or more. I
guess the city planning board mem-
bers, of whom I was arfong for more
10 years, are saps for volunteering to
serve for $0. In addition, there are
numerous volunteers in many city and
county services, who serve the gov-
erning bodies gratis.
I've worked for public school sys-
tems in New Jersey for 27 years and
run a small private business for the
past 24. Ido receive a modest pension
and benefits as part of a window
offered by the town in which I was
employed. As a private practitioner,
I've never received paid sick leave,
vacation time or any other benefits
other than my fee and the pleasure,
hopefully, of helping folks work
through personal problems I never
expected that to be any different.
Besides revealing my age (oh well) it
has been a good trip and continues to
be personally rewarding.
In an age of economic woes, self-
proclaimed patriot groups, and more
subtle racist overtones many
Americans are tense. This is a time
when rational thinking and planning
is essential not the first period of
uncertainty we've experienced in our
historically new representative democ-

Superb'
The Fernandina Little Theatre's
just-concluded run of "Angel Street" is
one of the best amateur theatre pro-
ductions I have ever attended. The act-
ing was absolutely superb..The FLT
sometimes tends to be overlooked by
residents because of the bright light
cast by its better funded, larger sister
company, the Amelia Community
Theatre. But the consistent quality and
variety of FLT's productions deserve
our support, both as ticket buyers and
season donors. I encourage those who
have not yet discovered the delights of
the Fernandina Little Theatre to buy
tickets for its next production, or bet-
ter yet, invest in season tickets.

I owner's the federal govern-
ment or city taxpayers?
SProponents, incumbents
mostly, are going to have to
Artfully identify and explain
the city's "compelling inter-
est" in the building and a
"compelling reason" to spend
millions of local taxpayers'
DEBATE dollars to repair and refur-
bish it. Opponents, chal-
AND lengers, will have to explain
TACILE alternatives to city ownership
and their plans for the build-
ing.
Ron Sapp Minor issue What's the
future of the city's airport?
Minor issue to most Fernandinians, but major
issue to those living around the airport or to
the major- users of the airport (the resorts on
the south end) or if you have a business at the
airport.
Several years ago the commission approved
a resolution that prohibited spending at the air-
port for any purpose other than safety.
Rationale? If the airport grew in capacity, if the
number and size of the aircraft particularly
jet aircraft increased, then the residential
communities surrounding the airport would be
negatively impacted.
I know, if you buy a house next to an airport
- but those residents were promised, implicit-
ly, that the airport would remain small and,
whenever possible, resident friendly. Now,
well, it seems those implicit promises might go
out the window.
First, why are we cutting all those trees, if
indeed we are? It all depends who you talk to:
Some members of staff "We're not going to


cut down many trees at all and those we do cut
down will be for safety purposes." Other mem-
bers of staff- "We'll have to cut down thou-
sands of trees if the airport's going to expand;
if we're going to attract larger aircraft and
more of them."
Second, rumor is that the city's exploring
the idea of adding a second FBO (fixed-base
operator)? If true, why? Is it to punish the
McGills for bringing the lawsuit? Do we expect
airport traffic to increase that much?
The Airport Advisory Committee has been
digesting the idea of creating an island-wide
airport authority for three years; no word yet.
Is this a good idea? I mean, 80 percent or more
of airport use is generated by resorts on the
south end, why shouldn't they be included -
and held responsible for airport decision
making? Should the airport continue to be a
city function, solely, or should it be an
island/county function, reflecting actual use?
SIn my opinion, if the commission finds ways
to facilitate growth at the airport that increases
traffic, the kinds of traffic, the noise, then
we've broken a promise to the people who live
in those surrounding neighborhoods the
quiet enjoyment of their property. One current
commissioner screeches constantly, and mis-
takenly, about property rights, well, in my
mind, those rights cannot be better illustrated
than quiet enjoyment of one's property.
Hopefully, incumbents and challengers will
tell us what their vision for the post office
building is and how we get there. And, hope-
fully, they'll tell us what their vision for the air-
port is and how we get there.
I don't know about you, but I'm looking for-
ward to it.

Bad day on 9/11: Wreck with

Homeland Security agent


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader

A Fernandina Beach man
was arrested Sunday after a
crash at the intersection of
Atlantic Avenue and 14th
Street with a Homeland
Security agent damaged a traf-
fic light pole, according to a
police report.
The man ran a red light
just after 6:30 p.m., forcing
the federal agent in an
unmarked vehicle to crash
into the pole to avoid a colli-
sion, according to the report.
The agent then flipped on his
lights and pursued the man,
who did not stop until Broome
and North 18th streets, police
said.
The agent and a Customs
and Border Patrol agent


placed the man in handcuffs
until local police could arrive,
according to the report.
Officers smelled alcohol on
the man and observed symp-
toms they allege were consis-
tent with someone consuming
alcohol, according to the
report. After field sobriety
tests the officers reasoned,
they had probable cause to
arrest him, the report stated.
The man later refused a
Breathalyzer test, according
to the report.
Bryan Christopher Mason,
26, 901 Stanley Drive,
Fernandina Beach, is charged
with fleeing and eluding
police, leaving the scene of a
crash and driving under the
influence causing property
damage.

Pirates win, edge Keystone Heights 21-15 in over


BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Pirates were victorious in
their second outing of the season,
beating host Keystone Heights 21-15
in overtime Friday.
"We really grew up Friday night,"
said Travis Hodge, first-year head
football coach at Fernandina Beach
High School. 'The kids fought so
hard the whole game. I'm so proud
of my boys and my coaching staff."
The FBHS Pirates settled for a
field goal on their opening drive and,
after the defense held on the
Keystone's ensuing drive, Jordan
Holland broke a 25-yard touchdown


run to put the Pirates up 9-0.
The Indians answered.
'"They recovered a pooch kick
after a scoring drive and the short
field allowed them to get another
score right before half," Hodge said.
The hosts led 12-9 at halftime.
"We pride ourselves on being a
second-half football team and one of
our team goals is to always win the
second half," Hodge said. "We made
some critical mistakes in the first.
half that really kept us from pulling
away, but we knew if we corrected
some things we would be fine."
Another recovered kick gave the
Indians a short field, but the Pirate
defense held them to a field goal.


Keystone pushed its lead to 15-9.
Midway through the fourth quar-
ter, Cody Cosper caused a fumble,
recovered by Rhett Burford.
Tai Dunwood took over from
there with a 27-yard run. The Pirates
were poised inside the Indians' 10-
yard line. Dunwood punched it in
two plays later to knot the score at
15-15. The Pirates' extra-point
attempt failed.
Keystone drove the Pirate six-
yard line, poised to attempt a game-
winning field goal.
"We had four guys get through
and block the field goal," Hodge
said. "Once we made that play. I
knew we were going to win the ball-


game. In overtime, our defense
made a huge stop. We (Cosper)
intercepted the ball on fourth down,
so all we needed was a field to win."
But Dunwood managed to score
from four yards out for the victory.
"It was one of those games where
it seems there was a stretch where
nothing went our way," Hodge said.
"We had fumbles, penalties, etc., but
thli k;ls never gave in and they kept
playing and, more '!i ....I il..they
expected to win the whole time. And
they found a way to win.
"I'm just so proud of them. They
work so hard and they deserve this
victory. We had a lot of young men
step up big, so many of them that I


can't name thim all. It was a total
team win. They are a great group of
young men. Very unselfish. I love
these boys."
Holland'ended the night with 1,15
yards on 21 carries. D)inwiood had
15 carries for 108 yards and a pair of
TDs.
The Pirates (1-1) host Eagk 's
View Friday. Kickoff is at 7::0 p.m.
i, i. -'s View will be tough." said
Hodge, who garnered his fii'si wiln
as a head coach Friday. "They havc
some great athletes.
"Very II coached. Their head
coach Ryan Keith is a good buddy of
mine. We grew up tog'llh'ier on tih
West Side."


JUNIOR VARSITY SHOWDOWN


Brett Evans carries the ball Thursday for the Fernandina Beach High School junior varsity football
team in its opener at home against Keystone lHeights. The host Pirates fell 28-7 to the \xiitors. The

FOOTfBALL



Buford just too mt ri A


for Hornets to handrt


BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Hornets hit the small screen
Friday night, taking on defending
Georgia state champs Buford on a
game televised nationally by ESPNU.
"We did a lot of good things Friday
night," said Bobby Ramsay, head foot-
ball coach at Yulee High School. "We
just made too many of the same mis-
takes that, against programs on a
national level, will get you beat."
The Hornets dropped to 0-2 with
the 49-7 loss.
"If there are areas that we strug-
gled in, it starts with me as the head
coach," Ramsay said. "I have to do a
better job of setting the tone to get
them corrected. I was proud of the
defense and the effort overall.
"We competed hard and are better
for playing Buford."
Derrick "Shocka" Henry scored
the Hornets' lone touchdown of the
night. The.junior running back ended
the night with 116 yards on 17 carries.
Carson Royal completed five of 14
passes for 84 yards. Zack Camp
caught three for 63 yards and Henry
reeled in one for four. Kelvin Rainey


also had a reception for 17 yards.
The Hornets were held to just 215
total yards on offense while Buford
tallied up 349 on the night, 204 on the
ground and 145 through thi air.
SCamp had a trio of assists and six
solo tackles on defense. He also
caused a fumble. Rainey had live tack-
les and five assists and Chris Mur-
dock had five assists and four solo
stops. Jake Litecky, who had two as-
sists and five solo tackles, also recov-
ered a fumble. Garrett Henderson
had three tackles, seven quarterback
sacks and a fumble recovery. Ialton
Muckenluss recovered two fumbles.
"Chris Murdock had a great game
at linebacker," Ramsay said. "Zack
Camp had a phenomenal game. Our
10th graders Brycen Gagnon, Garretl
Henderson, Nick Parker, Brett
I' 1, i 11 and Stone Lakey all hadl ood
games. Aaron I .....I out on spe-
cial teams."
The Hornets host Southlake.
Friday.. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
" "AnotlTerbigger school with Iood
athletes at the skill positions and play
makers on defense," Ramsay said.
"They have won their first two games,
so they will be confident."


St. Marystops FBMS 32':


The Fernandina Beach Middle
School Pirates traveled north to St.
Marys, Ga., Thursday to take on the
.eighth-grade team and came home
with a 32-12 loss.
"It was an extremely physical
game and we made some key mis-
takes that led to easy scores for
them," FBMS Coach Cam Harrison
said. "We had way too many bad
snaps, dropped passes and missed
assignments to come away with a win
against a good team like St. Marys."
St. Marys got on the board quick
with a 55-yard touchdown run on the
game's first play. After the Pirates
failed to move the ball on their first
drive, St. Marys found the end zone
again and pushed their lead to 13-0.
The Pirates would respond when
Alex Torres ran back the ensuing
kickoff 75 yards to get the visitors on
the board. The PAT failed and the
Pirates trailed 13-6.
The momentum was short-lived for
the Pirates. St. Marys scored on the
next drive to extend the lead to 20-6.
The Pirate offense was able to put
together its best drive of the day on
the next possession, capped off by a
48-yard touchdown run by Will
Mitchell. The PAT again failed and


the Pirates trailed 20-12 at halltimle.
After the half, the Pirates were
unable to muster any more points and
St. Marys tacked on two more scores.
"We had some injuries to key play-
ers and we dropped throIe touch-
downs in the second half" Ilarrison
said. "Combine that with all the
missed tackles and botched snaps and
you get a loss. I am disappointed with
the overall performance, but I know
our boys will learn from this and we
will get better because of this game."
Mitchell led the Pirate rushing
attack with 73" yards on eight carries
with a touchdown. 'Torres had six car-
ries for 34 yards, Kyle Ihorgan foLur ifor
15 and Tyreke Hubbard three for five.
Brylen Eri'ckson completed thr I(-
of four passes for 46 yards and Cody
Byrd was 1-for-2 for 14 yards. Caleb
Simmons reeled in a pass for 17
yards, Hubbard had one forr 15 and
Kai Pelham and Max Jones had oini
each for 14 yards.
Mitchell led the (dflh'nis with six
tackles and an inltrccptioni. I)aislon
Brown, Hubbard, HIector Vanl iini'p
and Marshall Thompson had four
stops apiece. Thompson also had l;
quarterback sack along with ll iorain,
who also had thrt ltacklrs.

HIGH SCHOOL GAMES THIS WEEK


the river


Further

A cloudy morning
showcased a scat-
tered school of river
tarpon occasionally
rolling near the surface on
the first of an incoming tide.
With outboard motor run-
ning, Rob Goyette, Bill
Fassbender, Foy Maloy andt I
chased down air-gulping tar-
pon; tarpon have the need for
occasionally gulping fresh
oxygen on the surface, giving
away their present location.
A variety of lures were
cast, including D.O.A.
"Mullet" and large plastic
"Swim" baits rigged to heavy
led jigs. Twenty-five-pound
fishing tackle rigged to 80-
pound fluorocarbon shock
leaders carried lures both
deep and near the most
recent tarpon sightings. The
growing anticipation of hook-
ing giant, high-leaping "silver
kings" grew with every cast.
'. 11,1- in the world of fish-
ing beats hooking a 100-
pound river tarpon.
Schools of mullet were
everywhere on the surface,
while pelicans dove into the
river for an easy meal of high-
protein menhaden. Suddenly
just 50 yards from our fishing
party, a massive school of
jack crevalle joined the sur-
face feeding frenzy.
We were the only fishing
boat targeting tarpon and
jacks that cloudy morning
and less than a mile up river
from'Goffinsville Park and
public boat ramp.
After an hour of chasing
tarpon and schooling jacks,
we had managed to hook a
pair of 10- to 15-pound jacks,
but struck out on the tarpon.
We all agreed if the tide was
falling that morning, instead


of flooding,
:_- .. ,. fc we may have
Shad a better
.shot at
Nassau River
i -* / tarpon.
.. "Let's
navigate fur-.
ther up the
Nassau
OUTDOORS River,"I
--..--- advised my
TeriyLacoss fishing party.
"Although
the tide is coming in here, fur-
ther up the river, the tide is
still filllin. and I know of
some small, narrow feeder
creeks that are teeming with
stripes, largemouth bass and
redfish."
SThe Nassau River has
numerous feeder creeks that
come in various sizes from
narrow creeks that you can
hardly navigate with a kayak
to large deep creeks that
large fishing boats can
access. Fishermen will find a
mix of both salt and freshwa-
ter game fish where water
salinity is key. In many cases,
the right mix of both fresh
and saltwater finds the best
fishing action.
After running up river for
just over 30 minutes, I point-
ed my Triton bay boat into
the mouth of a narrow feeder
creek and gave positive trim
to my Mercury outboard to
avoid snags that were numer-
ous on the bottom.
Fishermen need to avoid run-
ning full speed in these small
feeders. Losing a propeller or
outboard lower unit will cer-
tainly ruin a day of creek fish-
ing.
At one point, a fallen tree
that lay smack over the small
creek required special naviga-


tion. Fassbender took up a
position at the bow of our.
fishing boat and raised low
limbs that enabled our pas-
sage. Now, it was time to test
our fishing skills.
Goyette lowered the elec-
tric motor at the bow and
turned it to a slow speed
while Bass Assassin plastic
shrimp tails, rigged to 1/8-
ounce led head jigs, were cast
to up the creek, where game
fish were less likely to sense
our presence.
"Fish on," Goyette
announced!
A brilliantly colored red-
fish busted by our bay boat,
then to the surface and rolled
violently. Goyette's redfish
looked to weigh at least six
pounds and was a spectacular
brilliant orange in color. The
fight was also spectacular as
Goyette's redfish ran every
which way in the narrow
creek, which made the red-
fish encounter very special.
Unfortunately at the very
last second, Goyette's jig,
hook pulled free and his red-
fish swam free up the creek.
During the rest of the
morning both Maloy and
Fassbender experienced simi-
lar narrow-creek redfish
encounters.
I don't believe there is any
type of fishing that rivals
small creek fishing. Hooking
*a large fish in a narrow creek
certainly offers a variety of
fishing challenges, including
navigation and landing large
fish.
During the next few
months of fall, don't overlook
the many small feeder creeks
that feed the Nassau River.
Are you up for the chal-
lenge?

Tea for two or four or even more at Hoyt House


The Hoyt House, a little Victorian
gem, is located at one of the busiest
intersections on Amelia Island -
Centre and Eighth streets. If you did-
n't know it was there you might miss
it. Set on a beautiful lot, it is tucked
under its gentle protectors the live
oaks that have guarded it through
the years.
The original owner, Fred W. Hoyt,
was originally from New Hampshire.
Following the Civil War he sought
his fortune, as did many other entre-
preneurs, in the Southern United
States. He found success in
Fernandina with its rapidly expand-
ing seaport. Hoyt sold groceries,
hardware and building materials. In
addition, he was one of the founders
and. first president of the island's ,
First National Bank. Ajournalist, in
addition, he wrote for the Times
Mirror, which is now The News-


FROM
THE
PORCH

Dickie
Anderson


Leader, our home-
town paper.
The Hoyt House
offers more than
traditional bed and
breakfast bookings.
It offers a chance to
step back in time, at
least for afternoon
tea. Amelia Island
experienced its
Golden Age in the
late 1800s when
fashionable visitors
enjoyed holidays in
what was once con-
sidered the
Newport of the


South. Tea time was an important
part of a proper Victorian's day. It
was a time to socialize between lunch
and a more formal dinner later.
Added to the tea were light nibbles,


which might include small sandwich-
es and sweets.
The Hoyt House offers the oppor-
tunity to enjoy a proper English tea
in an elegant 100-year-old Victorian
home. To enter the Hoyt House is to
be embraced by wonderful space
decorated in a charming combina-
tion of burgundies, blues and greens
in pleasing patterns. A player piano
tucked just inside the entry offers
gentle, familiar tunes to the experi-
ence.
Deborah Gold and Myrta
Defendini, innkeepers, have brought
new life to the Hoyt House. Gold
shared, "We wanted to open the Hoyt
House to the public so, they could
share the beauty and charm of the
historic home we love. We get ladies
that just want a tea for two experi-
ence, guests traveling through
Amelia Island, a few Red Hat Ladies


groups. Young and seasoned come
dressed to the nines with hats and
dresses galore. We do birthdays,
anniversaries and even a surprise
engagement, having the ring on the
tray in a chocolate cup tucked inside
a strawberry flower."
On a recent Saturday, a birthday
girl and her friends stepped out of
the hustle bustle of a too busy world
and returned to a time when people
stopped to enjoy a cup of tea and
each other's company. Under a
sparkling crystal chandelier the
birthday celebrants looked over the
menus offering a variety of specialty
teas and delectable nibbles. Each
was offered a warm lavender scented
wash cloth to clean their hands. The
ladies selected different teas includ-
ing classic English, Darjeeling and
Sangria. Each had their own teapot.
As the ladies sipped their tea, they


,were offered a selection of finger
ready sandwiches, scones, crumpets
and sweets. The birthday girl smiled
at her friends as they began to select
their choices.
So take time for tea for two, or
four or more and call the Hoyt- Jouse
to schedule your own tea party.
English tea at the Hoyt House will
be offered during High Tide
Women's Weekend on Friday, Sept.
23 and Saturday, Sept. 24. Fee is $30.
Call 277-4300 and use the code *
HT804. For more about the Hoyt
House go to hoythouse.com.

Barbecue competition
The Great Southern Tailgate Cook-off at Main Beach last month featured more than 50 professional and backyard
(amateur) teams preparing chicken, ribs, pork and brisket as they competed for more than $20,000 in prize money
and trophies.

Nunn visits
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club recently enjoyed a
presentation by WJXT Channel 4 Meteorologist Richard
Nunn, above with club President Shannon Brown. Nunn
discussed the many variables contributing to this year's
above-average hurricane season, now reaching its peak.
He noted the summer of 2011 will go down in the
records as the third warmest for our area and follows
two years of record-breaking cold winters. He also talked
about the many advances in meteorology that have made
weather forecasting more accurate and outlined how cli-
mate changes and global warming have affected local
weather.

Carlee is a very sweet girl;
and very active and playful.
She's a young terrier mix who
was found running as a stray.
She knows how to sit and
appears to have been house-
trained but she's going to
need some training and TLC
to become the best dog she
can be. She's very playful and
energetic, athletic and agile.
She's not very big and is fully
grown, with a sunny disposi-
tion. Because of her high
energy level she probably
shouldn't be in a home with
young children, and a fenced
yard to play in is important -
although when you don't have
time to play with her, just give
her a toy and shell entertain
herself! She gets along well
with other dogs and is gen-
uinely happy all the time. We !
think she'll make you happy, -
too, if you're a dog person
looking for a special rescue!
Please come see Carlee!

Claire is an absolutely
beautiful Russian Blue mix,
with a beautiful disposition to
match. She's about a year old
and loves attention. She's a
sweet cat who enjoys people
and really likes being petted.
She also has extra toes at no
extra charge! She has a ken-
nel-mate whom she does very
well with, but she's a bit over-
whelmed at being in a shelter
and really needs a loving
home. Please conic see this
sweet, gorgeous girl! You can
see videos of our adoptable
dogs and cats at our website,
