Confession in Colborn murder

A longtime suspect in the 2007
murder death of Ele Colborn con-
fessed to the crime Tuesday,
Fernandina Beach Police said.
First-degree murder and sexual
battery charges were filed against
Dusty Lee Bowman, 39, originally
from Cincinnati, Ohio, who has been
a suspect in the case since the sum-
mer of 2007.
Fernandina Beach Police Chief
James Hurley and Capt. David Bishop
met with Bowman on Tuesday at the





Compelled by constituents, Nassau
County Commissioners voted 4-1 in
favor of temporarily continuing plas-
tics recycling Monday. Following the
commission's adoption of a tentative
budget of $155 million, the decision
was resisted by Commissioner Steve
"If we've just adopted a budget ...
what's the funding source?" Kelley
inquired. "Are we taking money again
out of reserves is that where we're
getting it?"
The continuation of plastics recy-
cling.will cost the county $28,000 -
money from the general fund, accord-
ing to County Manager Ted Selby.
Selby informed Kelley that changes to
the budget made between the first and
second public hearings adopting it are
commonplace because estimates of
intended revenue are speculative.
Eric Titcomb of Fernandina Beach
urged commissioners to consider a
"temporary measure" continuing the
plastics recycling until they could
arrange a permanent solution.
"I go to the Bailey Road recycling
(facility) every weekend," Titcomb
said. "There are always people there;
they are always using the plastic recy-
cling. Yes, there are some problems
with it I understand that but there
would be problems at any other kind of
facility if people don't adhere to the
Commissioner Stacy Johnson told
commissioners, "Maybe this is the
appropriate time for this board to dis-
cuss whether or not we want to con-
sider bridging the gap on the plastics
recycling until we.put that out to bid."
Seizing an opportunity to pass the
measure in a timely manner as opposed
to calling a special meeting,
Commissioner Danny Leeper proposed
the "temporary measure" continuing
plastics recycling immediately.
The county, Selby said, is explor-
ing options to put its recycled goods
hauling out to bid with businesses in
the area.
Public works officials had previ-
ously decided to terminate plastics
from the recycling program as part of
a couritywide effort to trim department
budgets by a flat 10 percent. "

Herring said that while he considered

Punta Gorda. He
gave a taped state-
ment confessing to
the murder of
Colborn "while pro-
viding detailed
information about
Bowman the crime that only
the killer would
know," Hurley said.
Police said last Friday a former
cellmate at Apalachee Correctional
Institute in Sneads provided infor-

nation about the case after Bowman
showed him a letter from the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department. The witness contacted
Hurley and advised that Bowman still
had the letter, 18 months after it was
written, and that he acknowledged

Bowman was arrested on June 28,
2007, in St. Augustine, suspected in
the burglary and assault of an elder-
ly woman in that city. He was subse-
quently charged by Fernandina
Beach Police with a similar burglary
and assault on a 56-year-old woman
that occurred in the Ocean Sound
subdivision here on June 7, 2007.'
Bowman was eventually convicted
of charges stemming from the June 7
attack in Fernandina and sentenced to

held in



It was about 5:25 p.m. Sept. 7 when
the woman walked in the front door of
the mobile home on US 301 in
Bryceville. She checked on the chil-
dren playing videogames in a nearby
bedroom. Then she scooped up the
eight-month-old girl from her baby
bouncer and held
the child in her
arms. Hearing the
infant's cries and an
unfamiliar voice on
the baby monitor,
the child's father 0
entered the room as
the strange woman -
tried to leave with Green
the infant, according
to a police report.
Snatching his daughter back, he con-
fronted the intruder.
When he asked what she was
doing, she said she needed a ride to
Beach Boulevard in Jacksonville.
When he asked how she got into the
home, she insisted the children let her
in. When he asked why she was hold-
ing his child, she claimed she had
done so because the child was crying,
according to the report.
The other children said they did
not let the woman, in. The father
demanded the woman leave his home.
Aft'li she left he called the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office.
When the child's mother woke, she
followed the intruder, who was head-
ed south on US 301 on foot.
Confronted once more at a nearby
store, the intruder offered no expla-
nation as to why she had entered the
home or picked up a child that was
not her own, deputies said.
The responding deputy took Rose
Blossom Green, 33, a transient, to
Mental Health Center of Jacksonville
for evaluation, Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves said.
"This isn't something that happens
every day," Seagraves said Wednesday.
The sheriff declined comment on the
results of Green's mental evaluation.
Seagraves said he was not pleased
with the decision to take Green to a
mental health facility instead of the
Nassau County jail.
"She should have been arrested
the day the deputy went to the scene,"
said Seagraves. He added that Green's
possible mental illness should not
absolve her of any guilt or responsi-
bility in the Bryceville case.
If she had succeeded in taking the
child and had later been struck by a
car as she wandered down the road, he
said, she would have been responsible.
When the facility released Green on
Tuesday, Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies picked her up. After inform-
ing Green of her rights, she confessed
to the crimes, Seagraves said.
Green is charged with burglary to
an occupied dwelling unarmed and
attempted kidnap. She is being held on
$125,004 bond.
A search of Duval County Clerk of
Court records revealed that Green has
charges dating from March 2000 to
as recently as Aug. 6, when she was

Transit service for veterans hits the road

News Leader
For several years, Nassau County
Veterans' Service Officer John Martin
kicked around the idea of forming a
Nassau County Veterans' Council
made up of representatives of the var-
ious veterans' (. 'ili,:ii ,-iH-. with an
eye toward fostering communication,
improving cooperation and coordina-
tion of events, and pursuing projects

that would enhance the quality of life
of local veterans, especially those who
are disabled.
"Approximately two and a half
years ago, I met with the leaders of the
various local veterans' organizations
and pitched this idea," said Martin.
"It was enthusiastically received
and the Veterans' Council was
It was shortly after this that the
council decided to look into ways of

providing transportation for Nassau
County veterans to their appointments
at the V.A. Medical Centers in
Gainesville and like City.
Allied Veterans of the World in
Callahan had tried this and found that
the cost of insurance for a transporta-
tion program was the biggest obstacle.
"They had a van, but the insurance
liability was too expensive," said
Martin. "I had been talking about this
project with Ken Willette and Greg

Fricke of the Council on Aging, County
Commissioners Danny Leeper and
Steve Kelley and County Manager Ted
Selby, to see if there was a way to part-
ner to make this project a reality. So,
with the donation of the van by the
Allied Veterans of the World, repairs
made to the van funded by the coun-
ty, and placement of the van in the
Council on Aging's transportation fleet
and under their insurance umbrella,
we are now ready for the rubber to

meet the road," said Martin.
The van can accommodate 10 peo-
ple, or less if wheelchairs are used.
Local veterans with appointments
at the V.A. Medical Center in
Gainesville may utilize the transit serv-
ice. "If this project takes off, we are
considering expanding it to cover the
V.A. Medical Center in Laike City," said

Living Healthy program at COA

ElderSource, located in Jacksonville, is pro-
viding a safe haven to discuss problems facing
seniors 60 or older locally with its free Living
Healthy program, which is being offered in
Fernandina Beach. Living Healthy, also known
as Chronic Disease Self-Management Program,
is hoping to help elders stay active and enjoy life.
The six-week program, which will be held at
the Council on Aging in Fernandina Beach on
Thursday from 1-3 p.m. beginning Sept. 22,
will help participants learn new skills for living
better with chronic diseases such as arthritis,
heart di.. -. diabetes, cancer, emphysema,
asthma and epilepsy. Additionally, they will learn
how to manage symptoms, use medication effec-
tively, exercise safely and easily, handle diffi-
cult emotions, communicate better about health
issues with family and friends and relax.
Contact Frances Bartelt to register for the
series of free classes or for more information at
261-0701, ext. 102. Each class is limited to 16.
Participants are supplied with an instruc-
tional book and encouraged to openly discuss
issues they have or may have faced in the past.
The instructors, who are certified and caring,
provide a safe and confidential environment.
Carl, a recent graduate of the Living Healthy
program, stated, "I feel like I'm back in college.
I read the book and think about our sessions and

it reinforces what the book says." His class-
mate, Marie, also found success with the pro-
gram. "The book has forced me to think about
my health and become conscious of the lack of
my healthy living. I'm also able to manage my
stress better."
ElderSource is optimistic that the program
will promote social and well-being, self-confi-
dence, personal independence and overall
health. Carl seems to be excited for his life out-
side the program. "I'm going to read the whole
book. I've absorbed so much from the course
already," he said. Marie wants to continue the
program, too, "I'm going to drink more water and
be more aware of my environment. I want to be
the best self I can be and help others, too."
Serving as the state-designated Area Agency
on Aging and the Aging Resource Center for
Northeast Florida, ElderSource's mission is to
empower individuals to age with independence
and dignity by providing leadership, direction,
advocacy and support for a comprehensive coor-
dinated continuum of care.

which elders, their caregivers and the general
public can turn for information, referral, assis-
tance and answers related to aging issues. To

"The number of students
at YHS continues to increase

tougher and tougher to come

The YHS Foundation helps
provide funds to YHS teach-
ers for academic needs. Grants
made to YHS teachers enable
them to purchase micro-
scopes, sets of books, software,
calculators, etc. Items provid-
ed'by the Foundation are used
directly by students in the
classroom, thus providing for
a better learning environment.
"Education is a priority
when young people are being
molded to become prod-uctive
members of society and the
future leaders of our commu-
nity," said Clark, who began
working on establishing the
Yulee High School Foundation
in 2005 with Muriel Creamer,
a member of the Nassau
County School Board.
"Several of the Fernandina

Foundation members advised
us and helped us lay the
groundwork to start our own

who was an FBHS parent
assisted us in filing and obtain-

living with us since she was 5 weeks old. She is now 9 .
months old. She weighs about 8 pounds and is dark

fearful of everything.
We want to thank everyone who helped my little
dachshund, Coco, cross A1A Friday. Special thanks to
Karen O'Leary, who ran into speeding traffic on A1A and
stood in front of two semi trucks to stop traffic and to
the truck drivers who got out of their trucks and helped
stop ongoing traffic and to the many other people who
were traveling on this 4-lane highway who stopped and
helped stop traffic for her to cross.
I also want to thank all the people who have been
helping in the search for Coco: Karen, her husband and
Raven, Tiffany, Jim and LaDora, the woman who spied
her in the woods and many others. Special thanks to Joe
Novello, who knew all the right things to do and never
gave up. Coco was found in the woods near Target on
Tuesday evening. She only has a few scratches and is a
little skinny. Her brother is very happy she is home and
we are a family again. Thank you, everyone, for all you
did to reunite our family.

The 24th is the brainchild
of Maggie DeVries, owner of

self Amelia's Secrets and
Ghosts of Amelia and Other
Tales. She's gathered a crack
team to help her, too: Sue

organization that supports
parents and caregivers as they
rear the children of Nassau

classics as well as Caldecott

my turn to regale you with les-
sons I've learned in over 40
years (yikes!) of professional
writing. I've named it "Getting

will share with you is why
writing is like ironing.
All of these workshops are
only 30 minutes long, so
they're a quick study. Oh, and
I should mention that the
workshops are free, as is
admission to the marketplace
itself. The only thing you have
to pay for is lunch. And any
.books you buy, bf course. Did
I mention that Christmas is
coming and that many of our
books will make excellent
stocking stuffers? Surely
someone you know has a
birthday coming up.
I got so busy talking about
books that I almost forgot to
mention Pookies! Pookies spe-
cializes in tailoring your
child's party to a theme you
choose and then bringing that
party to you. Pookies is bring-

The first Cancer Prevention
Study started in the 1950's
examining the link between
smoking and lung cancer.
The second CPS started in
1982 and is still ongoing. It
began looking at nutrition and
lifestyles. This study was the
first to establish a link between
obesity and cancer. The popu-
lation in this study is aging so
CPS3 began with the need to
recruit a new study population.
At enrollment, participants
fill out a brief survey about their
health history, provide a small
blood sample (to be collected
by a trained phlebotomist) and
have their waist measured.
The long-term commitment
to the study means that the par-

more comprehensive survey at

Smooth peanut butter? Nuts!

I was a few bites into a peanut butter and
jelly sandwich I snarfed during a late-night
fridge and pantry raid last night when I real-
ized the pantry had been booby-trapped. The
peanut butter contained no crunchy little
pieces of roasted peanuts. Dejected, I fed the
rest to the dog and went to bed, stomach
grumbling, tastebuds in full riot.
So, just how do you manage to gobble
down roughly a third of a PB&J sandwich
before it dawns on you that someone has sub-
stituted smooth peanut butter for crunchy or
my personal fav, extra crunchy peanut but-
ter? Well, it's like this. Yours truly has fallen
victim to an expanding waistline. One of the
medications I'm taking for a recent ailment
seems to give me a raging case of the
munchies, generally when both hands of the
clock are in the straight up position. My doc-
tor scolds me about my burgeoning belly, but
because he's also a secret operative of the
company that makes my favorite brand of
crunchy peanut butter, he continues to give
me medication that makes me crave the stuff
at all hours of the night. I have to devour it
post-haste to avoid detection by his spy, my

Joe Palmer there's nothing else to eat or
if I have cold milk to wash it
down with another forbidden pleasure but
I shun it otherwise. Let me put it in perspec-
tive. Remember the old Dr. Seuss story about
green eggs and ham? Well, substitute smooth
peanut butter for green eggs and ham and
there you go: "I do not like it in a box. I do not
like it with a fox. I do not like it in a house. I do
not like it with a mouse. I do not like it here or
there. I do not like it anywhere. I do not like it
smeared with jam. I do not like it, persnickety
I am." Sorry, Dr. Seuss.
So, just how deeply does my aversion to
creamy peanut butter run? There was actually
a time when I knew no better than the gustato-
ry delights of smooth peanut.butter spread on
a slice of Sunbeam. Smooth peanut butter was
the only kind Mama ever bought. And then I
was watching Sky King one day and saw my

first ever television commercial for crunchy
peanut butter. The television pitchman had
roughly the same effect on me as the Pied
Piper did on the children of Hamelin. I jumped
up from the sofa and bolted to the kitchen and
demanded that Mama rush off to the store
forthwith and buy a jar of crunchy peanut but-
Mama, bless her dear departed heart, lis-
tened patiently as her eldest parroted, word
for word, the peanut bitter pitchman's patter. I
would grow big and tall and fly'rocket ships to
Mars if she would just feed me crunchy
peanut butter instead of the smooth stuff.
When I ran out of things to say, Mama looked
at me and smiled and rendered her verdict:
It didn't occur to hie to askwhy. One just
didn't engage in such impertinence back then.
But on that same day, I swore on Davy
Crockett's grave to never cat anything but
crunchy peanut butter when I grew up and
could buy my own.
Over the years, my own kids have entreat-
ed me to please buy smooth peanut butter for
a change. I listen patiently and smile and ren-
der my verdict, always a resounding no. But
times have changed.-
So who pulled off the smooth peanut
butter caper at our house? I have my suspi-
cions. I could've sworn I recently saw our two
sons lingering at the pantry snickering con-

Music hath

i heard something on National Public
Radio the other morning that set me
thinking. The announcer was dis-
cussing how one of the things folks in
Afghanistan are enjoying most since the fall
of the Taliban is the return of music.
I can relate to that in a major way. When
I was a little girl, my dad would often belt
out that old Frank Sinatra song, "Without a
song, the day would never end."
Whether it's classical, jazz, folk, pop or
music from the '30s, '40s and '50s, there's

puter, I can find music to
match any state of mind.
Sometimes I'll indulge
in the quirky and delightful

other times I might be in
the mood to listen to The

Hearing Perez Prado play-
Perry ing "Patricia" immediately
transports me to the early
'50s and the marine pub my family frequent-
ed after a day out on my dad's little fishing

with me.
Let me hear a good flamenco guitar and
my feet immediately begin tapping under
my desk. If I'm in a blue funk, Josh
Groban's soaring voice can easily lift me out

Music has always played a major role in
my life and I have found that certain songs
have the power to get me through stressful
times. For example, there's nothing like a
cherished, familiar tune to chase away the
heebie-jeebies associated with surgery.
Whenever I have to be hospitalized, I pro-
gram much-loved 'songs and hymns into a
tiny music player about the size of a ciga-

moment they wheel me to the surgical

It's nice that I've passed on my love of
music to my son and believe it or not, our
musical tastes actually coincide occasional-
ly. Who doesn't love Dark Side of the Moon
by Pink Floyd, right?
I'n glad the people of Afghanistan have
their music back because as Frank wrote,
"Wilhout a song the day would never end.
Without a song the road would never bend.
When things go wrong a man ain't got a

Madein America
Recently, the Dr. Martin Luther
King Memorial was dedicated in
our nation's capital. Most think of
Dr. King as a leader in the civil
rights movement and one of the
most influential men of our time.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in our
Declaration of Independence, "We
'shall hold these truths to be self
evident, that all men are created
History has proved "We the
People" for many years either forgot
to read that line, didn't understand
it or flatly ignored it. Funny that in
the political world of today everyone
tells us what our Founding Fathers
would have wanted and yet for
much of our history they wrote out
15 simple words and we, as a nation,
couldn't figure it out.


r Then along comes a black
Baptist minister from Montgomery,
- Ala. By his 35th birthday he had
t done so much he was awarded the
Nobel Peace Prize. It is ironic that in
s 1968 when he was killed in Mem-
phis,Tenn., hewas there to support
a strike by local sanitation workers.
- The sanitation workers were white
f and they were black, but to him they
were Americans trying to better
themselves through that old collec-
tive bargaining system that so many
want to take away from our workers
t today. (Thank you, Wisconsin.)
As a nation we felt we must
honor Dr. King with a memorial in
Washington. Sounds like a fair and
noble gesture for a man who stood
up, not just only against the sup-
pression of blacks, but also for the
rights of working Americans and
the concept of collective bargain-
Collective bargaining is not much,
different from our system of gov-
ernment. In government you have
pretty much two sides -..the
Republicans and Democrats fight-
ing over issues for the common
good of the people.
In industry you have two sides-
management and the unions fight-
ing over issues for the common
good of the company Believe me, no
union in this country wants a com-
pany to fail for it would mean fewer
jobs for its members.
Getting back to the Made in
America thing. I would have thought
that any American monument would
be made in America. It sounds
almost unpatriotic to think other-
wise. It isn't rocket science. Who
else would build an American mon-
ument but Americans, right? I mean
it is an American monument to
honor a great American and is stand-
ing in Washington, D.C., the capital
of our nation.
The building of this monument
spans four presidents'- Clinton,
Bush, Bush and Obama which
would lead one to believe there is
enough blame to go around no mat-

ter where you stand politically.
The interesting part about this is
the monument and head sculptor
was Lei Yixin. He is from (are you
ready for this?) The People's
Republic of China, which, the last
time I looked, was still,a commu-
nist country. I guess there wasn't
an American sculptor who could fig-
ure this one out. The granite for the
piece was mined in The People's
Republic of China. If we do many
more monuments I am sure we will
be able to find slabs of granite in
Walmart before too long. The work-
ers were from China and, when they
shipped it over for assembly, Mr.
Yixin brought over a team of unpaid
Chinese laborers to assemble the
monument in Washington. So much
for buy American, and let's hear it
for outsourcing.
So here we are, dedicating a
memorial to a man who fought not
only for his race but for the rights of
all working men and their rights to
be represented fairly in the work-
place. What did we do as a nation?
We imported the very stone and the
labor from a communist country to
immortalize him. There just doesn't
seem to be much logic to this. In
fact, it is insulting to every working
The good news is maybe even
Dr. King's death and being immor-
talized in Chinese granite, he can
still teach us all a lesson. I will never
be able to look at that monument -
and forget it was outsourced and
not only took away American Jobs,
but also American pride.
I will think of how all the politi-
cians on both sides let this happen
and how ashamed I am that we have
come to outsourcing not only our
clothing, our phone services, our
technical support jobs but now even
our national monuments in our very
own capital. I only hope that some-
where in the back of the monument
they didn't forget to put the made in
China label.

Elm Street celebrates 2011 season

be to God as we continue to
train up our children in the
way they should go. Thank
God for the memories of Elm Street
Little League. Another good year has
come and gone. The celebration took
place Aug. 13 at the Martin Luther King
The banquet began with County
Commissioner Danny Leeper serving as
master of ceremonies, City Commission-
er Jeffrey Bunch giving the welcome
and our former Mayor Charles Albert,
who also serves as vice president of this
league, gave remarks. Lt. Bill Leeper of
the Florida Highway Patrol was sched-
uled to give the Little League pledge,
however, he personally apologized
because of another speaking engage-
This year was a very good year.
President Wayne Peterson said, "I've
been truly blessed. There was a lot
more parent participation this year and
looking forward to seeing them next
year. We still need more city officials
and community leaders to come out and
give their support, to really see what is
going on at Elm Street. It's always good
to lead by example; we need you too."
There are lots of moments of memo-,
ries at Elm Street. Leonard Peterson is
one of those moments in memory; he



introduced the speak-
er. When our speaker
was growing up, his
mother-really didn't
want him to play
sports, but Leonard
Peterson saw the abili-
ty in this young man
and went and got him
to participate.
Our speaker for this
year's celebration was
our very own Anthony
Russell, who now
works for the Orange
County school system.
He grew up at Elm
Street. Now married

with children, he has his masters
degree, teaches online classes and is
working on his doctoral degree. He
talked to the children about how Elm
Street helped him, how important edu-
cation is to them and about being
Also our own Rev. John Coverdell,
pastor of Prospect Baptist Church, gave
the blessing of the food, donated by
Spencer Clayton and Domino's Pizza,
two of our sponsors. Another sponsor,
Fernandina Beach Optimist Club,
served the meal, which was ni.-.yed by
all in attendance.

more teams added for T-ball and the big-

With moves that make me chuckle good news for those needing to pur-
and what has to be a disregard for chase some. Actually, to a certain
what people are thinking about group of people, according to Jesus,

and returning to Christ-likeness

buying gold is exactly what they
need to be doing. The account is
located in the book of Revelation,
Chapter 3, beginning in Verse 15. To
a church that thought they had it all
together, Jesus confronts them with
the reality of their true condition.
Though His words were piercing
and so hot that they needed to be
written on asbestos paper, clearly
His motive in saying them was one
of pure love. I'm not sure how his
words will do written on newsprint,
but here they are.
"I know your works, that you're
neither cold nor hot: I would you
were cold or hot. So then because
you are lukewarm, and neither cold
nor hot, I will spew you out of my
mouth. Because you say, I am rich,
and increased with goods, and have

need of nothing; and know not that
you are wretched, and miserable, '
and poor, and blind, and naked: I
counsel you to buy of me gold tried
in the fire, that you may be rich; and
white raiment, that you may be
clothed, and that the shame of your
nakedness does not appear; and
anoint your eyes with eye salve, that
you may see. As many as I love, I
rebuke and chasten: be zealous
therefore, and repent. Behold, I
stand at the door, and knock: if any
man hear my voice, and open the
door, I will come in to him and will
dine with him and he with Me."
(Revelation 3:15-20)
What amazes me about this pas-
sage is the target audience. It's a
church. Though churches are made
up of people and people are capable

of all kinds of stuff, when those who
are supposed to demonstrate
Christ's humility begin manifesting
arrogance and self-sufficiency, we
now have a problem.
The other powerful aspect of this
passage is that Jesus loves them
enough to tell them heaven's point
of view. Though it's clear, not
responding to such words of truth
carries a huge consequence,
it's also clear that returning to
Christ-likeness pays enormous
dividends. While buying the
gold Jesus is selling will cost us our
pride, those who make such pur-
chases will never lack for any good

Youths of the Month

With pride, the Boys & (Girls
Clubs of Nassau County
announce two fine young people
as Youths of the Month for May
2011: Andrew Lee and Ramsey
Andrew Lee is a young man
whose path to success in life
looks to be assured. A mature
sixth-grader at Yulee Middle
School with a desire to help out
whenever a need arises, he
shows that interest in others by
volunteering at the club, doing)
chores at home and assisting
younger club members.
Andrew is a natural leader
who also does well in school,
particularly in reading, math
and science. After completing
his high school studies, Andrew
wishes to pursue a career in law
enforcement. His leadership
abilities bode well for Andrew's
Ramsey is a pleasure to be
around. In the sixth grade at
Fernandina Beach Middle
School, his favorite after-school
place is the Boys & Girls Club.
But Ramsey has important
responsibilities at home, too,

when he cares for his young sis-
ter. At school he likes math and
rarely misses a day in class. At
the club his honesty and sense
of fair play make him a great
role model, plus he always
seeks ways to help the club staff
and with club community proj-
He is a member of the Torch
Club. Ramsey plays on club bas-
ketball and football teams, and
is the shortstop for the Reds
Little ILeague team. He aspires
to a career in professional,
sports. Ramsey says he is
"actively lazy," becoming easily
-bored with nothing to do. With
such a motivation, Ramsey
seems assured of success in the
future with that motivation.

FBMS Pirates, YMS Hornets 22-0 winners

It didn't take long for the Fernandina
Beach Middle School Pirates to get on the
scoreboard in Tuesday's home opener against
the seventh-grade team from St. Marys, Ga.
Caleb Simmons returned the game's open-
ing kickoff 70 yards for a touchdown to put
the Pirates up 16 seconds into the game.
Darrian Wentworth ran in the two-point con-
version and FBMS had a quick 8-0 lead.
"It was important for us to get on the board
early," FBMS Coach Cam Harrison said. "We
were starting seven players in new positions
due to injuries and academic suspensions,
including our entire starting backfield. It was
nice to have the early lead."
After the defense forced the visitors into a
three-and-out, the Pirates went on the attack
again. Following consecutive long runs by
Tyreke Hubbard and Max Jones, quarterback
Brylen Ericksen found Kai Pelham for a 30-
yard touchdown pass. Jones caught the two-
point conversion pass and the Pirates led 16-0
with four minutes remaining in the first quar-
St. Marys mounted an impressive drive on
the next offensive possession, driving nearly
the length of the field and taking more than 10
minutes off the game clock. With less than
two minutes left until halftime, the FBlMS
defense was able to stop the offense on a
fourth down and thwart the St. Marys scoring
The Pirate offense was unable to score
again prior to the half and FBMS took a 16-0
lead to halftime.
The second half started with kicker Hector
Vanlennep pinning the St. Marys offense at
tne 12-yard line after his kick went over the .
head of the return man. Deep in St. Marys ter-
ritory, Simmons stripped the ball from the
running back and was tackled inside the 10-
yard line to set up the next Pirate score.
Alex Torres found the end zone on the
ensuing play and the Pirates led 22-0. It would
be the last score of the night, as both defenses
stiffened and would not allow any more points.
The Pirates walked away with a 22-0 victory
"We were in an interesting situation for this
game, not having our starting quarterback
and running backs able to play," Harrison
said. 'Thankfully we sawv some other guys
step up when they got the opportunity and
really play well.
"We still need to clean up some of the
penalties, dropped balls and bad snaps, but
overall I am pleased with our team's perform-
ance. Every member of our team pitched in to'
help us get this victory."
The game against Camden originally
scheduled for Tuesday at Pirate Field has
been changed to Thursday at Camden. The
Pirates will return home the following
Tuesday to face the Camden seventh-grade
Wentworth had five rushes for 43 yards on
the night; Jones three for 25; Anthony
Kortekaas two for 21; Hubbard two for 16; and
Ericksen two for five.
Ericksen completed one of four passes for
30 yards. Pelham was on-the receiving end.
Vanlennep and Daishon Brown led the
Pirate defense with eight tackles apiece. Dylan
Jausel had six, Pelharn had four and Marshall
Thompson, Hubbard and Wentworth had
three each. Thompson and Hubbard also
recorded quarterback sacks. Simmons forced
a fumble, recovered it and also had a pair of

Yulee 2ZHilllardO
The Yulee Middle School Hornets were
also 22-0 victors Tuesday at home.
'The defense had a great game, only allow-
'ing two Hilliard first downs the entire game,"
YMS Coach Lester Smith said.
Bryce Blocher, Tony Avery and Kydrin
Huguley made multiple.tackles for losses for
Yulee. Darian Owens and RJ. Adams each had
an interception.
Irrone Coley had a pair of touchdowns
runs and Owens scored aTD.
"It was a great victory for our team," Smith
said. "The players and coaches worked hard
all week getting ready for our first county
game and it paid off. Our defense played out-
standing and our backs ran the ball hard."
Yulee hosts St. Marys' eighth-grade team
at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Darian Owens, left top, takes care of business Tuesday night, when the Yulee Middle

Justin's Miracle Field to open in Camden

Justin's Miracle Field,
located in Lions Park. in
Kingsland, Ga., will make
wishes come true for more
than 1,000 children in. the
area who will now have a safe,
fun place to tilay.
"Our primary mission is to
provide a facility that will
enable allchildren to play the
game of baseball, regardless
of their ability," said Jeff
Norris, a spokesperson of the
Justin's Miracle Field. He and
wife Tina and their son, Cody,
founded the local Miracle
League field in the memory'
of their youngest son and
Cody's brother, Justin, the
organization's namesake and
an avid fan of baseball.
A Miracle League Field is
no ordinary baseball field. It
has a specialized rubber sur-
face that allows children with
special needs, even those who
use wheelchairs or walkers
for mobility, to participate in
the game of baseball.

"So many times, children
with disabilities are left on the
sidelines to watch their sib-
lings play," Norris said.
The construction of a
Miracle League baseball field
includes paving the field with
concrete, extending the
dugouts to allow for wheel-
chairs and applying a rubber-
ized surface to allow for the
ease of movement of wheel-
chairs of walkers.
The total renovation will
cost in the neighborhood of
$350,000. Since February
2010, the organization has
raised more than $300,000
through donors, grants and
generous community support
of fundraising efforts, Norris
The organization hopes to
set the grand opening for mid
to late October, and now all
that is needed are players and
volunteers to make it a suc-
cess, Norris said.
The league is open to any-

one with special needs and
there is no age limit for the
players. Anyone 12 years of
age or older may volunteer as
a buddy. Adult volunteers can
be buddies, coaches,
umpires, team moris, etc.
Initially all of the Miracle
League games will be played
on Saturday. With interest
.and availability, weekday
games may be offered.
"In the Miracle League,
everyone gets a hit and
everyone scores," Norris
said. "Each player is paired
with a buddy that helps them
at the plate and in the field.
Special relationships are
formed and the experience
and confidence that the chil-
dren gain from playing can be
life changing."
