"You must pay the rent due for
November 2011 immediately (no later
than Dec. 8,2011)," Czymbor wrote to
Island Aviation in a.letter Thursday,
"and pay December rent on time (Dec.
10, 2011) or the city will have to take
action to terminate your lease and
repossess equipment liened by the
city."
The city did receive payment from
Island Aviation for the November rent
since his letter, Czymbor said, but the
December rent will be considered'past

existing Airport Advisory Committee;
Paul Condit, Civil Air Patrol; George

Czymbor noted in the letter that
similar evaluations were done for the

He has a heart for service


H EATH- ER A. PERRY
News-Leader

Kiwanians have "a heart for
service" and fulfill their desire to
serve while having a good lime
in fellowship, says the president-
elect of the Fernandina Beach
club, Stan Storey, a Kiwanis
member for 37 years.
"I joined because I wanted
to become more involved in
service within the community in
which I lived."
Storey is involved in some
way in almost all of the fundrais-
ers and service projects per-
formed. *
'"There are several benefits
to being a Kiwanian," explains
Storey. "The two I like best are
the fellowship and camaraderie
you develop with fellow mem-
bers, and the opportunity to
serve and give back to my com-
'munity.
"We also learn more about
our community through inter-
esting and informative pro-
grams at our meetings, and we
provide opportunities to devel-
op leadership skills."
Kiwanis is a global organi-
zation of volunteers dedicated to
changing the world, one child
and one community at a time.
Each of the 290 clubs
decides independently what
service projects to perform,
with priority focused on'young'
children, prenatal to age five,
says Storey.
"But most clubs perform


service where it is needed with-
in their communities, whether it
be for young children or senior
citizens or anywhere in
between."
Among the service projects
performed by the Fernandina
Beach club are a reading pro-
gram at Head Start, cleaning
sections of the road 'once each
quarter and supporting various
local organizations such as the
Fernandina Beach High School
Foundation and the jazz and
blues fests.
The club holds an annual
golf tournament and awards
scholarships to outstanding sen-
iors at both Fernandina Beach
'High School and Yulee High
School.
A new global Kiwanis effort
is focused on the elimination of
neonatal tetanus.
Originally from Thomaston,
Ga., Storey moved to
Jacksonville in 1973 and to
Nassau County in 1993. He and
his wife, Elizabeth, have five
grown children and seven
grandchildren. They share their
home with a feisty cocker
spaniel named Lindee.
The Fernandina Beach
Kiwanis Club meets the first
three Mondays of each month
at.6:30 p.m. at the Fernandi'na
Beach Golf Course clubhouse
on Bill Melton Road.
'For information on joining
Kiwanis, call Bill Dickson, sec-
retary, at 321-0238.
.: iype@fbnewsleadercom


"We share'
The name Kiwanis comes from a Native American phrase
I meaning "we trade" or "we share our talents:"
Comprising more than 10,000 members in more than 290
i clubs. the Florida District is one of the largest and most suc-
cessful districts in Kiwanis Intemational.

Top city officials learned a
year ago that Island Aviation,
the city's largest airport tenant,
was behind in its rent by
$65,000. The company has con-

The city was involved in
negotiations over the past year
with two prospective companies
interested in buying or leasing
Island Aviation's operations.
According to Czymbor's let-
ter to Island Aviation, "several
prospects for buying or leasing
all or part of your business have
not completed a deal with you,
and we must face the fact that
the sale may not happen."
City Airport Manager
Richard Johnson said'lastyear
that Island Aviation.and several
other airport tenants owed more
than $87,000, in fees and rents,
due to the poor economy. He

Authorities have located a
man who phoned in a false
bomb threat to the Walmart
Supercenter in Yulee on
Monday, according to Nassau
County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves.-
Seagraves said shoppers
and employees-got a scare
when a man called the store
about 4 p.m. and left a message
that there was a bomb in the
building, but that proved false
when a comb of the premises
failed to find any explosives.
He said Tuesday authorities
have traced the man's call and
,are in the process of securing a
warrant for his arrest.
"I hope they'll have solne-
thing today," the sheriff said
Tuesday.
Seagraves said authorities
traced the man's location using
a phone number recovered
from the store's caller identifi-
cation .system. He said the
phone company "pinged" the
number and found it in use at

He said authorities and
employees were able to evacu-

debunked, employees were
able to reopen the store within
an hour.
Seagraves said the man

Toastmasters goes beyond that,
helping business professionals
improve their speaking effec-
tiveness, listening skills, lead-
ership acumen and self-confi-
dence.
"A lot of people think the
Toastmasters is just to help you
give speeches and that's part of

growth part involving the devel-

dence in your ability'to cowm
municate with other people,
whether it's on the phone, in ah
e-mail or in a group meeting,"
said membership chairman
Bruce Buchanan.
Today's executives are often
not required to address people
in person, relying instead on
computer presentations. The
idea of public speaking may be
daunting if not downright terri-
fying to those whose last expo-

Consumer confidence remains stuck


University of Florida
GAINESVILLE The con-
sumer confidence index among
Floridians remained at the mark
set in October, just higher than
the record low set in June 2008.
SThe November survey
reveals a mixture of positive and
negative perceptions.
"Consumers are slightly less
optimistic about current condi-
tions than they were last month
and slightly more optimistic
about long-run conditions," said
Chris McCarty, director of UF's
Survey Research Center in the
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research, which con-
ducted the survey.
McCarty noted that of the
five categories used to measure'
consumer confidence, iwo de-:
creased, two increased and one
remained unchanged. Percep-


tions, for example, that compare
personal finance levels with
those of a year ago fell. However,
expectations that personal
finances will improve a year
from now went up.
Most of the index compo-
nents are lower than they were
at the same time a year before.
Not only is the consumer confi-
dence level stuck at historically
low levels, it "has previously
been associated with reces-
sionary levels," said McCarty.
If consumer confidence atti-
tudes are mixed, so, too, are
reports of economic activity. The
jobless rate for Florida, for exam-
ple, remains high at 10.3 per-
cent, though there was an
encouraging three-tenths of a
percent decline in uncmnploy-
ment from SeptembeC Ocrto-
ber. Some of the new hiring
occurred in the health and edu-


cation sectors. An uptick in
Florida tourism also spurred job
creation. However, McCarty.
said sustained increases in"
tourism may fade if austerity
programs in Europe and the
U.S. curtail personal spending
on travel.
Meanwhile, Florida's con-
sumer confidence continues to
be shaken by a slump in housing
activity. The median price for a
single-family home at $131,550
is down from both September
and October of last year.
The gloomy housirig outlook
is accompanied by modest good
news of gasoline prices, which
command a larger share of low-
er income consumers' spend-
ing. They dropped 7 cents in
-Nov,.mibib to $3.35 for a gallon
oil tulai gas.
McCarty also anticipated a
future with mixed prospects.


"The Gross Domestic
Product (the nation's annual
product and an indicator of eco-
nomic health), though revised
downward for the third quarter,
was still positive at 2 percent
nationally," he said. "Florida's
gross state.product is forecast to
be low, but positive."
McCarty added that al-
though the U.S. and Florida may
avoid experiencing 'the effects
of negative'GDP, most econom-
ic indicators "suggest sluggish
growth for the next few quar-
ters." In addition, he said that
worsening economic problems
in Europe may drag the U.S.
into a lower GDP
Even though retail sales
were down in October and con-
supler confidence levels are low,,
McC6ithy predicted modest
growth this holiday season com-
pared with 2010.

Political dysfunction



D.C.-style hits home


Fernandina Beach is
removed from the bustle of '
big towns, but offers a unique
vantage point.
You see, the tiny town has
"a front-row seat to the political
zaniness in Washington, D.C.
And you don't even have to
travel or pay admission.
The same political dysfunc-
tion is occurring here a
microcosm of the nation's cap-
ital. Unchecked spending.
Baffling decisions. Stifling
regulations. A distaste for
businesses. And a deaf ear to
the public.
Right here among us,
in front of us. You don't even
have to read or hear about it.
And the similarities are
striking, revolting,
Unchecked spending:
Fernandina Beach city offi-
cials have raised the property
tax rate each of the last three
years and still ran into
deficit spending.:Clearly, this
is a case of spending too
much. To boot, city officials
are pushing forward with bor-
rowing millions for unneces-'
sary projects. Not unlike their
federal peers,.who continue to
borrow and spend while fail-
ing to tackle a $14 trillion
deficit.
Baffling decisions: Federal
officials championed health
care reform (as the U.S. econ-
omy cratered), while
Fernandina Beach had its own
version of missteps in
' Fi,r wm d Fernandina." While
unemployment runs over 11
percent in Nassau County,
and businesses close their
doo- by the.day, city officials'
are focused on pet projects
that will bring little in terms
or tourism, quality of life or
tax revenues.
Stifling regulations 'At
least three prominent busi-
nesses have recently endured
the wrath of regulations with-
in Fernandina Beach. Each
invested in a costly expansion
of their businesses.- while
city officials "fought them the
whole way." With ever-devel-
oping Dodd-Frank legislation'
and hundreds of new laws
impacting businesses, you see
the painful similarity on the
federal level.

The bottom line is that
these are instances of public

VIEWPOINT/
S STEVE RIECK/NASSAU COUNTY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BOARD



A time to strengthen



city's economic future


I n January of 2008
Florida's Constitution
was amended to make
significant changes to the
property taxing structure of
local governments; In order
to determine the potential
impact of those changes on
Nassau County, the Board of
County Commissioners hired
Orlando-based consultant
Fishkind & Associates to do a
fiscal sustainability study. The
study found that 51 percent of
the county's general fund
budget comes from property
taxes a significantly higher
percentage than Nassau's.
neighbors.
The most important find-
ing of the study was that an
economic model that relies
heavily on residential proper-
ty taxes is not a sustainable


model.It eventually collapses
because it costs more to pro-
vide services to residential
property owners than they,
will pay in property taxes. By
contrast, taxes generated by
mixed-use developments in
office, retail and industrial
properties generate nearly
three times the amount of rev-
enue. They also generate new
jobs something that we all
could use. The study's conclu-
sion was that Nassau County
needs to diversify its economy
by generating more job and
revenue-producing activity.
The Board of County
Commissioners has devel-
oped such a strategy and is,
beginning to reap the bene- .
fits: I
Fernandina Beach's fiscal
year 2012 budget projects that


55 percent of the city's
General Fund revenues will
come from property taxes. :
Not surprisingly, most of
those will be residential prop-
erty taxes. Now might be a.
good time for the city to con-
sider a similar strategy for
economic diversification.
I met recently with a group
of Fernandina's business and
industry leaders who have
developed an exciting and
aspirational vision for the
city's future:
"The city of Fernandina
Beach is a vibrant, naturally
beautiful and historic commu-
nity with an attitude that sup-
ports responsible growth and
planned development The
city's outstanding quality of,
life and its safe, sihall-town-
feel encourage people to live,
work, shop, play,.learn and do
business here. Our city is rich
in its diversity of employment,
Recreational, cultural and vol-
,unteer, opportunities, With its
'abundant and well-preserved
history and its well-planned
and innovative future, the city
of Fernandina Beach will
annually be named one of the
most attractive small cities in
the United States. It's easy to
visit, fall in love with and
Make your business success-
fulthere." .
SThe group has decided to
Continue meeting together
regularly with this mission:
"We are a group of busi-
ness and industry leaders
who have a sincere desire to
help the city of Fernandina
Beach achieve this realistic
and attainable vision for our
future. We will challenge the
city's stakeholders current
residents, businessowners,
property owners, civic organi-
zations, governmental leaders
and the media to join us in a
partnership to develop plans
and projects that will bring u's
closer to realizing the vision.
ijOur goal isito~createrprodtue.

while preserving the city's
unique attributes."
I'nr excited to bea part of .
this group and I'm ready to
help it pursue the vision. I
hope you'll get excited too,
and consider becoming.a part-
ner in the effort. For more

This election is about change


Thanksgiving's over, my Georgia Bulldogs
lost the second half of the SEC championship,
game (being optimistic here), Christmas is in
the air (appropriately), collards and turnips are
delicious, students and teachers are looking
forward to a Christmas break must be runoff
election time.
This won't be an endorsement column -
newspapers endorse, rightly for two reasons:
1) no one individual should tell anyone who to
vote for, and 2) some people out there feel that
Ron Sapp is full of beans, so I wouldn't want to
hurt any candidate's campaign with an.
endorsement. I will, though, tell you who I'm
going to vote for, and why.
First, why is this runoff election so impor-
tant? Well, I believe this political season has
been about change and choosing the best peo-
ple to bring about that change. If elections are
vehicles of communication between the elec-
torate and the governing class, and they are,
then the voters of Fernandina Beach spoke
loudly and forcefully in the first primary:
"We're tired of being on the menu, we want a
seat at the table.".ln the second primary, the
runoff, voters have a chance to reserve that
seat.
So if voters want a seat at the table, how
important is this particular commission race?
Well, it's hard to overstate the importance
when one tries to predict the philosophical
makeup of the next commission. My prediction
goes something like this: there will be two sta-
tus quo commissioners, ones with a political
interest in keeping-things as they are, the deci-
sion-making process as it is, and two change
commissioners Corbett and Bunch. Two to
two, so far, with the fifth commissioner tilting
.the immediate future to either status quo or
change. Still doubting the importance of this
one race? Didn't think so.
As a voter unfamiliar with both candidates, I
read everything I could about both candidates,
and listened at the forums. I was looking for a
candidate committed to the following


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Hazng
The recent "big news" about a
wrestler having his buttocks
bruised and the huge to-do about
this would be comical if it didn't
involve the potential firing of 2
coaches good men both, and one
an outstanding teacher to boot
("Hazing alleged at high school,"
Dec. 2)!
My son wrestled for all four
years of his recent high school
career, and believe me, the bruises
he brought home' from freshmen
paddling were nothing compared
to what he brought home from his
matches! Wrestling, by nature, is a
tough, brutal contact sport if his
.,parents were that upset over some
bruisedd buttocks; what in God's
name would they do when some
opponent was twisting ll' Johnny.
into a pretzel, threatening to pull.a
Joint out of socket any second? Call
the police? Call their lawyer?
Honestly, in my opinion this
whole mess is a shining example
of the emasculation and wussifica-
tion of an entire generation of young
men in this country. Life is harsh,
sometimes it knocks you around
and it even may bruise your but-
tocks one of life's greatlessons is
how to pickyoirselfup, bite your lip
and get back in the game.'

'Fernandina Beach

Buling7
The letter in the Nov. 30 issue
regarding bullying would cause me
serious concern had it not so total-
ly ignored the truth in its repre-
sentations as to me, the unnamed
"attorney." First and foremost, who
is Dee Torre? Generally anyone
.who wishes to have credibility
inferred to their point of view would
discloseany potential prejudices or
conflicts on their own part. Ms.
Torre failed to do so but knowing
what I do I am not surprised!
SSubterfuge, misrepresentations
and flat out lies have become the
trademark of those pushing the
agenda commonly. known as
Forward Fernandina. The "Gucci
Baggers" that have embraced this
distasteful scorched-earth political
approach in our small town are
above nothing. Ms. Torre's at best
distant relationship to the truth is
amazing in light of the fact that a
record exists of the meeting she
references.
Debbie Stalego expressed her
concerns over the politicization of a
previously sacrosanct banner that
touted all manner of charitable activ-
ities and events for which
Fernandina has become known.
Following Ms. Stalego, Mayor
Steger turned the floor over to
Tammi Bach, the city attorney. Ms.
Bach gave a rather self-serving,
behind-covering explanation that
was another level of subterfuge and
blue smoke and then asked for
questions from the audience. I
raised my hand, was recognized
and asked two specific questions.
Ms. Bach made a factual misrepre-
sentation as to the contents of the
city code, which I pointed out. At
that time some person on the dais,
either (City Manager) Michael
Czymbor or (Vice Mayor) Tim
Poynter, I believe, asked the mayor
to have me come forward and iden-
tify myself on the record. I did so. I
am proud that I did and even proud-
er that I live in a place where the
Dee Torres of the world cannot pre-
vent speaking the tr.uth. The rea-


son I spoke without signing is that
.Ms. Bach asked for questions and
then the mayor asked me to come
forward. If telling the truth is bul-
lying then let that be part of my
headstone at Bosque Bello! If telling
the mayor I did not need three min-
utes is disrespectful in Ms.'Torre's
eyes then she needs, to see an
- optometrist.
I do not apologize for being an
ardent advocate for the truth.
However, that is not "bullying" by
any stretch of the imagination. The
true bullying at the stated meeting
Swas much more subtle and con-
ducted by Ms. Torre's ilk. Almost,
if not every, person that spoke in
favor of Forward Fernandina was
greeted by its titular head, Adam
Kaufman, as they entered the com-
mission chambers. Stacking a deck
behind the scenes is much more
distasteful to me than being up
front and telling the cold hard
truth. I said what I had to say in
person, in public and on the record.
The Forward Fernandina ilk did
.not!
As to the banner, the First
Amendment and Ms. Torre's great
respect for that document, the issue
at hand is not whether political
speech is protected, it is. The real
issue is whether or not that banner
location was preserved under city
code for specific events as defined
by the code. Ms. Torre, sadly for
you and your ilk, it is! What. hap-
pened is a bastardization of the
American way of life! Finding a way
to do that which would not be oth-
erwise permissible is neither a goal
I aspire to nor one which any lawyer
representing the people should pur-
sue.
You often heal law professors
speak about going down "slippery
slopes" and the inability to "un-ring
a bell" when taking constitutional
law classes. The "Gucci Bagger" ilk
has certainly taken this community
to new lows. We have slipped where
we never should have gone and
actions have been taken that can
never be taken back. Shame on all
who participated.

Followthe money
The letter to the editor titled


"Crossroads" (Dec. 2) endorsing
John Elwell reads well. It should
because itwas written by te wife of
his campaign treasurer, the same
person who was (Vice Mayor) Tim.
Poynter's campaign treasurer. Let,
me assure you that Sarah Pelican is.
not the candidate supported by the
crowd who would borrow millions
of dollars at taxpayers' expense dur-
ing these disastrous economic times
to do projects that could wait. When
you are trying to figure out the real
story, it is wise to follow the old say-
ing follow the money. Go to
www.votenassau.com and observe
the supporters of Forward
Fernandina who have contributed to
Elwell's campaign.
There Were five debates in the
election cycle. Did you ever hear
John Elwell say he was going to try
to stop this irresponsible fiasco
"Forward Fernandina"? There is no
doubt that the people have made
their position clear about the city's
plan by ousting the incumbent com-
missioners when they could. Let's
not let ourselves be distracted by
claims of vast business experience
being important to this election.
Several of our incumbent commis-
sioners have "vast business experi-
ence." How did that turn out? Both
an ousted commissioner and a cur-
rently seated one support Mr.
Elwell.
Please vote for the candidate that
has been consistently and clearly
opposed to the .imposition of
Forward Fernandina until economic
circumstances are such that the cit-
izens of Fernandina Beach would
vote in favor of funding it. That can-
didate is Sarah Pelican.
Note that money is being bor-
rowed by the commission before a
workable plan is even in place. The
interest cash register is clinking
away, pouring our money into the
bank's coffers while the city gov-
ernment is still figuring out what
to do with the funds!

911
In "Walking the dog" (Nov. 30)
the author recounts an unfortunate
experience at the beach. I under-
stand his concerns regarding the
incident and feel he has/had every


BOB ENGLEHART/HE HARTFORD COURANT

right to be scared, angry and upset
The woman mentioned should have
had better control of her pet or the
animal should have been left at
home. Her response also was very
unacceptable.
One thing here concerns me
however and that is the call to 911.
Reading through the letter' it
appears there was no longer any
type of threat/emergency when 911
was called. The incident was over
and the woman and her unruly
canine had moved on in their jour-
ney.
Calls such as this tie up the oper-
ators and add risk to those that may
truly be in need of emergency help.
Of course I was not on the beach
that day and only have his letter to
go on.
This letter is not intended to
upset, berate or badger (the letter
writer) but rather to get people to
think before calling 911 for some-
thing that really is not an emer-
gency.

Bankshould
be ashamed
Bank of America should be
ashamed. The bank that took our
federal tax dollars in a bailout is
now taking our local tax dollars to
clean up a piece of Amelia Island
property it owns due to foreclosure
("City will pay to clean property,"
Nov. 30).
If I were an employee of the local
Amelia Island Bank of America I
wouldn't want to admit it and if I
was a customer I'd be scrambling to
find a local bank to handle my finan-
cial needs.
In fact the former Bank of
America facility on.Centre Street in
downtown Fernandina Beach now
houses Peppers, a prospering, effi-
cient, customer-friendly restaurant,
instead of a greedy, selfish,
detached financial institution.
Converting the remaining island
BOA branches into Mexican restau-
rants appears to be a far more effi-
cient, community-friendly use of
those buildings.
Bank of America should be
ashamed. Too bad it isn't."

Ron Sapp Understanding that cul-
ture change at City Hall
required new leadership at the top and that the
performance of each charter officer city man-
ager, city attorney, city clerk had to be evalu-
ated, quickly, to determine where the right
team was in place to move the city forward, to
change the culture.
Rejecting the influence of interest groups
and individuals. Remember, musical chairs
begat Forward Fernandina, which begat $6
million worth of revenue bonds, which bpgat a
utilities tax, which begat, well, you know the
rest. Lincoln said, "Just because you hear the
crickets in the evening, don't think they are the
only creatures in the field." This commission
only listened to the crickets.
After considering all of the above, I'm going
to vote for Sarah Pelican. John Elwell seems to
be a nice guy and his business credentials are
impressive, and both are to be respected and
appreciated for sacrificing their time and
efforts in making themselves available to
serve. But I'm looking fdr that fifth commis-
sioner to be an agent of change and Sarah
Pelican appears to be that.
As a disclaimer and in the interest of
absolute clarity, Sarah Pelican has not asked
me to write this column nor has she promised
me anything. I agree with her on some issues


If elections are vehicles ofcom-
munication between the elec-
torate and the governing class.
and they are, then the voters of
Fernandina Beach spoke loudly
and forcefully in the first primary.'


and we disagree on others.'I have had one
extended conversation with her and came away
impressed with her command and knowledge
of local issues and her willingness to think out-
side the box, to explore new and different ways
of making things happen and her commitment
to culture change at City Hall.
Another factor impacting my decision: who
are the-interest groups and individuals back-
ing; who are they working hard for? Decidedly
not Sarah Pelican. Check for yourself and
remember those instructions from the movie,
"All the President's Men:" "Follow the money."
Interest groups and individuals contribute to
campaigns for a reason, and in this election it's
to keep the people of Fernandina Beach on the
menu, not at the decision-making table with
them. "Follow the money."
On Memorial Day and Veterans Day people
want to know how they can honor the men and
women who served their country, even, for
some, giving their "last full measure of devo-
tion." Well, one small thing, one little thing,
would be to take 10 or 15 minutes out of our
day to vote. It's not a sign, or banner, or parade,
but it is a way to recognize, albeit in a small
way, their sacrifice.
So I'm going to vote for Sarah Pelican, but.
to be absolutely clear, I'm not telling you to.
No, vote for the candidate of your choice on
Tuesday, but please vote.

My spot


Years ago when we first
moved back to Fernandina
Beach from Africa, my hus-
band Bucko had regained his
job at Fort Clinch State Park,
and I was unemployed, lonely
and friendless, a new person
in town with little to connect
me to the world. I hadn't yet
discovered the friendships
possible through the
Newcomers Club, the bud-
dies walking the beach at
dawn with their canines or
the joy from writing a weekly
column.
On especially depressing
days, there was one thing I
could count on to get me out
of my doldrums. I headed to
"my spot" for a close of nature
to cheer me up. With noting
else to occupy me, sometimes
I visited this spot three or -
four times a week..
My spot was a particular
place in Little Talbot State
Park. To get there meant get-
ting out of my lonely little
condo at Amelia Island
Plantation and driving 20 min-
utes or so down beautiful sce-
nic A1A. That drive was good
for starters, but the best was
yet to come. I still needed to
park my, ca,; load up my back-
pack with a book and binocu-
lars and lunch, then walk a
mile and a half down a wood-.
ed trail surrounded by sand
dunes and pine trees. Usually
by this point my spirits start-
ed improving.
Then, in a little side trip off
the trail, eventually I was
there my spot at last. I set

S with nature.
I could see,
hear and
WILD smell the
WAYS distant
ocean. The
Cedar trees
Pat sheltering
Foster- Turley me added
their own
fragrance to my little world.
Their blue berries contrasted
with the purple smilax berries
and the red holly berries that
also graced" my world.
But best of all, for me, the
zoologist, were the signs of
animals all around me. A
gopher tortoise shared my
knoll, its burrow hidden
under some 'smilax, but obvi-:
ous to me. The fi-esh gopher
tortoise tracks leading to and
from the site proved that
someone lived there, even if I
didn't see it at the time.
Bobcat tracks also led to
my spot, and nearby there
was a routine marking place
for the resident cat, a place
where I sometimes added my
owvn markings too if you
know what I mean), just to
claim my own occupancy
rights. Around me, in the
trees and bushes, I heard and
saw birds, small LBJ's (little
brbwn jobs) and sometimes a
woodpecker or two, tapping
on trees. Surrounded by the -


nature that I love, I was happy
at last.
Once I look a visiting -
niece, Maggie, with me to this
spot, one of the few people I
ever shared it with. I told her
about its significance to me,
the place I go when I'm lonely
and depressed, and she wise-
ly commented, "Here's hop-
ing someday you don't need
to visit this spot so often."
Well, folks, that time has
come. Recently I revisited this
spot after a gap of nearly a
year. To get there I walked
the long stretch of beach at
low tide, wandering happily
down the sand. I watched an
osprey splashing in the water
catching fish, eyed a seagull
eyeing me as it warily carried
its own fish catch away and
photographed groups of peli-
cans flying overhead. I
noticed the beach erosion
that shapes this natural barri-
er island, where nature takes
its course and no "renourish-
ment" is needed to save
homes.
It was a beautilurday at
Little Talbot, as most days
are, and I was happy from the
getgo. I was full of energy,
too, and walked all the way up
the beach to the point, pass-
ing the entrance to the hiking
trail by at least a mile before
doubling back to enter the
woods leading to my spot.
And soon enough, I took
my side trail and found my
spot once again. It looked
nearly the same, but felt dif-
ferent. The gopher tortoise
burrow hhd been overgrown
by the nearby cedar tree, and.
was now uninhabited. The
bobcat marking site was no
longer there. The view was
still impressive, the birds
were still around and the
smells of cedar and the sea

Scam of the Week: Internet


Back in August we report-
ed on an old scheme that had
resurfaced in Northeast Florida
to part grandparents from their
hard-earned money. The scam
was perpetrated over the tele-
phone when the potential vic-
tim received a call from a rela-
tive claiming to be in trouble
and needing money. The phony
relative usually said he was a
grandson in jail iri a foreign
country, usually Mexico, and
did not want to tell his parents
what had happened. So he was
calling you and asking that you
wire money to him so he could
bail himself out of jail. Our
advice at the time was to engage
the caller in conversation about
the family and ask enough ques-
tions to confirm the identity of
Sthe caller. Diu in rthii princess
they usually just hang up the.
phone since they realize you.
are on to their scam.
Now there is a spinoff on

works is that first someone that

mer sends out emails to the

eling overseas. He may be
aware that the person whose
computer-he has hacked into is

lowing is an actual email entitled

tant relative.
"Hello, How are you doing?

Used city police boat for sale


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
NJws-Leader

SThe city's fleet maintenance,
department has put up for eBay
auction a used city police boat
Sfor $10,000.
According .to City Police
ChiefJim Hurley, the 17.5-foot
1999.Ambar rigid inflatable boat
is being sold because staff has
been reduced and the depart-
rnent isn't using the boat as
much as was hoped when itwas
purchased.
Hurley said the former Coal


Guard boat was purchased sev-
eral years ago from military sur-
plus for $3,500, but is probably
worth about $30,000. Brand
new, the boat.would be worth
$65,000, Hurley said.
The boat was kept at the
Fernandina Harbor Marina and
was used ini-.tly for emergency
mooring issLes, Hurley said, as
well' as for routine patrols
around tile rlnal 'r
.The police department has
ana ilr:rnalie pl;n to take care
of rmain,- patiokl and emer-
gencies, Hurley said, by part-


nering with the county and mil-
itary as well as local groups
such as the Coast Guard Flotilla.
Hurley noted he was able to
form such partnerships over
the past few years that will not
cost 0lcal taxpayers any more
money.
Hurley also noted the boat
was purchased using ,drug
funds and that the police depart-
mentwas required'to hold it for
three years before selling it.
The jet drive, 17.5-foot
Ambar has an aluminum hull
and an inboard Yanmar diesel


motor and goes up to about 35
mph: A trailer is included. A Jet'
Dock dry dock for the boat can
be purchased at a separate eBay
auction for $6,000. The dry dock
can also be used to dock per-
sonalwatercraft opn land,Hurley,
said. Auctions for the two items
ended Monday.
According thd city's eBay
profile, the city's fleet mainte-
nance department has sold 172

Bassin hot through winter months


With television
cameras rolling,
Omni Amelia
Island
Plantation's Red MapleLake
was recently showcased for
Peter Miller's fishing show
"Bass 2 Bills."
Down syndrome patient
Andy Holland and Sande
Kirby were selected to head-
line the popular fishing show
recently filmed at Amelia
Island. The show literally cov-
ers bass to high-leaping bill- *
fish .
ExploringRed Maple
Lake's famous waters on foot,
Terry David Lacoss guided
the threesome of anglers to
some of his favorite.bass
holes.
The first bass of the morn-
ing struck a buzz bait and
weighed just over three .
pounds.As the surface action
diminished and the morning
dim light gave way to bright
sunshine, bass fishermen
switched to shiny, chrome
"Rattle Traps."
"Rattle Traps" are an
S extremely popular bass lure
that incorporates a fish calling
sound chamber and catchy
swimming action when fished
with a speedy retrieve.
S"Reel your bass lure faster
S and'keep your rod tip high,"
Miller instructed Holland.
'This bass lake is fairly shal-
low, so you will need to'keep
your lure working in the :
S upper"column of the Water."
Seconds later, Holland had.
a three-pound Red Maple ,
largemouth bass charge his
plastic bass lur.e. Exciting
: car twhieel leaps followed
before pictures were taken
and his first bass of the morn-
ing was released.
.. .I if i. lakes and


lagoons
located on.
Omni Amelia
Island
'Plantation
are catch-
and-release .
fishing only.
The fol-
lowing
OUTDOORS morning,
.-.. Lacogs guid-
Terry across ed Miller
and party to
a memorable day on the:
water redfishing. .
"I have never seenanyone
so excited as Andy H-olland
became during his fishing trip
here on Amelia Island;" Miller
said "Following each bass
and redfish catch made, Andy..
made sure that eve yone
knew that he was extremely
grateful for his fishing trip." ,
Without a doubt,this has
been one of the bestfall fish-
ing seasons for redfish. L cal-
red redbass fishermen have
been enjoying fast action
throughout the tides while
fishing with live Sh'rlmp tinder
a small float and'casting a
variety of plastic tails rigged
to led head jigs.
If yoi'go, the last few
hours of the falling tide and
the first few hours of the
incoming tide have been key
for redfish. During these shal-
low water tides, redfish are
schooling in the deep sloughs
that border large flats and
oyster bars.,
Once the tide stops run-
ning, make long casts to,
locate redfish that are holding
'in opf n want-i.,
Bass fishing has also been,
red hot this fall and should.
produce great Florida trophy
largemouth,right through the
.winter months and-into the


spring fishing seasons.
Trophy bass pool, Rodman
Reservoir, has been in a draw
down stage since early
November and will refill co- .
pletely by April 30:
One crf the Southeast's pre-'
'tniere bass lakes will be
drawn down from 20 feet to
11 feet and maintained at 11
feet through most of the draw
down period. Rodman will
then be filled to a lake level of
20'feet by April 30.
SAtempolrary boat ramp
will be in,place at Kenwood
Landing during the draw
down, w which will be operative
:'Dec. 15.
"Bass fishermen will need
to release their bass during
the draw down, hoWever fish-
ermen can keep specks'and
,catfish," said Jim Darby of
Messer's Bait and Tackle.
"Fishermen can still put their
fishing boats in at Kenwood
Landing because there is still
enough water. However, as
the reservoir continues to be
'drawn down, a temporary
boat ramp will be needed to
access the lake."
Rodman was scheduled to
be drawn down in 2010, but
was determined unnecessary
by the Florida Water Manage-
ment Department Draw
downs on Rodman Reservoir
are scheduled every 3-4 years
to expose shallow grassy
shorelines, which ultimately
kills vegetation and revitalizes
lake bottoms.
Messer's Bait and Tackle
sells live shiners, which are
the premiere bass baits for
trophy Rodman Reservoir
bass. For information; call

FWC suggests l-saving
holidaygiftfi rboaters
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion has a suggestion for any-
one shopping for a boater this'
holiday.'A new, comfortable
life jacket makes an ideal gift, -
Sand it could save someone's
life..
S "A lot'of people don't wear
life jackets because they feel
they're uncomfortable," said


Capt; Tom Shippof the Boat-
ing and Waterways Section.
S"However, with newer mod-
els, such as belt packs or sus-
pende's, you hardly feel
them. Replacing an old, bulky
lifejacket with a newer model
makes a great gift."
SBelt-pack and suspender
life jackets are inflatable.
Some inflate automatically
when a person falls: into the
water, while others inflate
after the wearer pulls a cord.


prices of the belt-pack and '"
suspender life jackets start at
approximately $60.
. "Frequently, a life jacket
can save a life during a boat-
ing accident," Shipp said.
One of the main responsi-
bilities for FWC officers is
helping residents and visitors
boat safely. They.often check
boaters for adherence to safe-
ty regulations and educate
them about safe boating prac-
tices. Unfortunately, at other


times, FWC officers are
called to the scene of boating
accidents.
"Many people don't expect
to need life jacket, particu-
larly if they feel they are good
swimmers," Shipp said. "How-
ever, when boating accidents
happen, you may not be able
to rely on your swimming
skills."
Many of the boating acci-
dents the FWC investigates
involve drowning deaths. Last
year, there were 79 boating
fatalities 49 of them by
downing: The FWC confirms
that life jackets may have
saved those lives and recom-
mends boaters wear one at all
times on the water.

d) Masters Toumament


Answer: d) The Masters is played every year at
Augusta National in Georgia.


S:-Rory Mcllroy boosted his
V ^ .. hopes of finishing the year as
9'~ A Europe's top golfer when he
holed a 15-foot bunker shot for
birdie on the final hole to capture the Hong
.Kong Open on Sunday. The U.S. Open
champion, runner-up 'in Hong Kong twice
before, came 'from'three strokes behind
.heading to the final round to win by two
strokes, firing a five-under-par'65 for a 12-
under-par total. The 22-year-old Mcllroy,
who won his fourth professional title, will
also need to. finish in the top two and above
Luke Donald in this week's Dubai World
Championship to deny Donald the European
season champion title.


,.One of the most embarrassing things the amateur golfer does is to mis-hit a
bunker shot and watch not get over the lip and roll back into the bunker. Most.
S of the time, our mindset is to just get up to the ball and hack away quickly to get
U/ out of the bunker once and for all: However, did you Ipow that you can use a rake
to smooth the bunker out before you take that second bunker shot? Rule 13-4 in
,.W, the Rules of Golf speaks on the matter and states that as long as you do not
improve your lie, raking the bunker.is acceptable. Now, let's say the ball rolled right backinto
the general vicinity of where your first shot was hit from. In this case, you can not rake the sand
because the lie would be improved or you would be assisted in making your next stroke.

Finding the magic ofChristmas in the red andgreenjungle


It gets harder and harder to find, simple
pleasure and joy in the holidays. It takes .
some concentrated determination to find
the merry in Merry Christmas-or the hap-
py in.Happy Holidays. Starting far too long
before Thanksgiving we are bombarded
with holiday marketing. You can't escape
someone trying to sell you something. It's
a red and green jungle out there. We never
used to think of Christmas shopping as
dangerous, but Black Friday has created a
dynamic, that is terrifying. People.are hurt,
and even killed, and one woman used pep-
per spray in this year's truly black Friday.
So once again we are challenged to find
the good'in' the holidays and push back the
bad. The race is on to try and manage all ',
the demands-of holiday giving. Who


should be on the list and how much to.
spend? How to find the perfect gift? In a
tough economy we have to find a way to be
thoughtful but not break our. Santa bank.
The Big Guy is like most men.
,Christmas shopping is forwomen and any
shopping he does is last-minute, but always
thoughtful. AWe do ihl annual let's agree to
'"not" (buy each other a gift). Soufids goodl.
Never happens. Both know e care too
much to take away the magic of a gift to
each other Christmas morning. After all,
we were married at'Christmastime!
Christmas is about children. If we are
not lucky.enough to be close to our chil-
dienand grandchildren we must work a lit-
Stle harder to find some holiday joy. I find, it-
.with my yoga group, my, book club and


special friends. We celebrate a year of
friendship and things we share and love
whether it is downward facing dog or read-
ing the latest best seller.
SIn 1843 Charles Dickens created
SScrooge, the character who set the bar in;
the bah lhunibug depal trmient Dickens'
c classic story, A ChristmasCar.,i1. still mFi ke
us stop and think-aboutwhia is really
imrpol rant at this lime of year. In Scrooge's
case it took ghosts I, shake him out:of his
self absorbed and lonely life. We have to
fight the inner cui-mudgeon in each of us
and find the child that could hardly wait for
Christmas Day.
So how'to find thp magic? Spend time
with a child. Jump in the car and take in
some holiday lights. Volunteer to help


make a Christmas for someone less fortu-
nate. Ring a bell for the Salvation Army. Be
around children, Go to church if only to
hear the unique beauty of Christmas car-
clk Watch a television Christmas classic:
It's A Wonder ful Life, Frosty the Snowman
