Nearly 20,years after its genesis,
the Amelia Island Multiuse Trail is
poised to serve the public as soon as
2013. Led by Commissioner Danny
deeper, the Nassau County
Commission approved unanimously
Monday an agreement with the Florida
Department of Transportation to main-
tain the $2 million trail on an annual
budget not to exceed $10,000.
"I think it's a great trail system,"
l.eeper said. "Not only is it a bike trail,
it's a t-ecreational trail whether you
bike, run, jog, rollerblade, it's going
to be an asset to the community. And
II in:ink i I .-, -rid, you'll see, it's going
i-) pay for itself."
Mike Pikula of the Amelia Island
Trail team said .comparable trails in
Orange County, Calif., demonstrated a
positive impact on the local economy
there. Referring to a survey of the
I rails' users, he said individuals aver-
aged expenses of $20 per day on inci-
dentals alone. With 100 users per day
- a conservative number, .he noted -
i he island's trail could generate more
than $700,000 for the economy in
Pointing to a firm Dec. 31 deadline
irom FDOT, Pikula encouraged com-
missioners to pass the agreement and
work out the funding details later. '
"I'd also like to point out that this is
not a budget crisis," he said. "We have
time to program this into our budget.
The first expenditure for the trail won't
happen until 2013, after the trail's com-
Pikula said that a county staff esti-
mate of $27,000 per year to maintain
the trail was "excessive." Even with a
thorough maintenance plan entail-
ing mowing, blowing, tree control, veg-
etation control and storm pickup he
wagered the upkeep would cost the
county $15,000 annually, based on an
estimate from a firm that currently per-
forms right-of-way work for FDOT.
Citing a study of 100trails done by
the Trail Conservancy, Pikula said the
average cost for maintenance per mile
was $1,500 to $2,000.
"For a 6.2-mile trail, that comes out
to be between $9,000 and $12,000 per
year," he said. "Now, we don't have to
contend with ridges, tunnels, rockfalls,
snow falls and so forth down here, so
our maintenance costs will be on the
low end of that."
With vegetation control compris-
ing the bulk of the maintenance, Pikula
estimated it would not cost the county
more than $10,000 for the first year.
He added that it would be possible to
trim that cost in successive years.
Commissioner Steve Kelley sug-
gested involving local businesses with
efforts to maintain the trail.

Call for reinstatement
Some in the animal rescue community are calling for former
Animal Services Director Deborah Biggs to be reinstated.
Mark Ghilds, a longtime animal welfare advocate, told the
Nassau County Commission on Monday night that under
Biggs' watch, euthanizations were down more than 18 per-
cent over fiscal year 2010, the "live release" rate was up almost
7 percent and 6.5 percent fewer animals were received, thanks
to a rigorous spay/neuter effort by the shelter and local animal
rescue groups and transports of animals to other shelters
,offering a better chance of adoption.
Other improvementssince Biggs took over included a 145
percent increase in permit revenues: a 39 percent increase in
licensing revenues; and refurbishment of the main kennel,
garage and quarantine areas. Numerous other projects have
been budgeted for in the 2011-12 Capital Improvement Plan,
The shelter also recently secured a $180,625 grant from
PetSmart Charities to fund spay and neuters on the West Side
for $10 per pet including rabies vaccination and county license.
Her goal was to spay/neuter 3,000 dogs and cats in the next two
years. Biggs had said.
Biggs said she is taking some time to regroup and then
hopes to put her talents to use as a consultant for shelters
experiencing problems. She said she would like to stay in the
area and hopes to find work nearby.

On Dec. 2 Fee was called back to Human Resources and fired
by County Manager Ted Selby.
"I explained to Mr Selb.y how I was never allowed to defend

Dr. James Thomas Daws eySr.,
Feb. 23, 1944 -Dec. 15, 2010
I'm not sureffPiletter is fo;. sie fom.rysel:
1 b utiwanted 9toshare with everyone my thoughts.
about someone important to me who passed away
this week. Myfather, Doctor James Thomas
Dawsey, Senior, has been the greatest Hero I have
known. People like to use the word "Hero" a bit
much so let me take a moment and explain what I
mean when'I use the word. 1 don't use it lightly..
For me, a Hero isn't just someone you admire. I admire writers, artists,
and people who can keep their sock drawers organized. A Hero is someone who
teaches you through his example something positive and profound. My father
did this in the way he lived his life. He showed me what it meant to live for
other people, that it was not only possible to be honorable, just, and kind to oth-
ers, but preferable.
My earliest memories of my father were of his,time in the United States
Navy. I was alive for 5 of those years, but I only recall the last bit of it. We
were stationed in Puerto Rico, so those early memories were of beaches and the
house we had there. After that, we moved back to Florida, our native state, and
he entered into practice there as an Obstetrician Gynecologist. He spent his
career helping people, safeguarding lives every day. Many times his decisions
and attention to detail meant the difference between life and death for more
than one person at a time.
It wasn't easy, being the son of a doctor He surrounded himself with peo-
ple for.whom excellence was a way of life, so I had very tall expectations of
myself and other people. 'Sometimes those expectations seemed impossibly 4
high. Further, the days Thad quality time with my father were few and far
between. I remember him spending so many nights at the hospital Waiting on
someone in labor that I would often resent his job for taking him away from us.
He did go out of his way to make the time we spent together meaningful, .
however. We spent a lot of vacations hunting, fishing, and camping together
We also traveled! Even though I was too young to appreciate much of it, I had
seen Spain, Morocco, Ireland, Scotland, and Lbndon by the age of 15, This was
in addition to the many vacations we took to go skiing in the mountains here in
America. I grew up thinking most kids my age had that kind of upbringing, not
knowing how privileged I was.
It wasn't until I moved out of my parents' house that I learned how much
my father had touched other people's lives. I was living an hour away from my
parents, and yet I couldn't go to the grocery store without bumping into someone
who recognized me as my father's son. I might be in a check-out line some-
where, when someone would see my name on my ID and say "Oh, your father
delivered my twins!"
With his recent passing (December 15th, at 3:30 am), lam reminded again
of how many people my father has helped. The outpouring of public gratitude
is amazing. After retiring from his practice, he continued performing medicine
in a free clinic in Yulee, Florida. He also volunteered for the Rotary Club, and
was in charge of up to 10 counties in the Red Cross disaster relief at one point.
If he wasn't doing something for someone, volunteering or setting up programs
to help others do so, he just wasn't happy. Idleness drove him to distraction.
Helping others wasn'tjust a way he made a living, it was who he was. It was
how he defined himself as a person.
If you knew my father; you may feel sorrow at the news of his passing. I
certainly sympathize, and I appreciate those who have taken the time to offer
their condolences. I ask you, however ; to not spend a great deal of time thinking
of his absence. Instead, think back on the person you knew, and try to emulate
him. Keep his memory alive by reaching out to people around you, strangers or
not, and doing what you can. My father was a man who built communities.
He would want to know those communities carried on after him.
With Greatest Love, James, Jeremy and Teresa

City, county officials
to decide new library
Another chapter will even-
tually be written in the saga of
the 'Fernandina Beach public
library, but the author is
unknown at this point.

flicting views on the final out-

community, with warring fac-

The grandest plan has been

old post office building.
The problem with this logic
is that it is obviously unpopu-
lar with the electorate based
upon the recent city election
results. There is alsothe issue
of having to borrow to accom-
plish it, since that money.has to
be paid back at some point.
John Crawford, the county
clerk, also raises a valid point.
Under the current arrange-
ment, the city owns the existing
library building; the county
pays for its operations. It
appears that this arrangement
has changed in the minds of
those wanting the county to
help pay for a new library build-
Also, county commissioners
would have to vote to release all
or part of the $600,000 targeted
for the Fernandina Beach
library. Even though the funds
were set aside for this purpose,
their release would have to be
approved by a majority of com-
missioners, including those on
the West Side of the county.
To add another twist to the
story, new County Commis-
sioner Steve Kelley has not yet
said he would use the funds for
the library. Kelley's predeces-
sor, Mike Boyle, had expressed
his interest in targeting the
funds to a library, but he has
since left office

story remains a mystery.

one individual even pointed
fingers at several commission-
ers and chastised them for
their decisions. First, never..
point your finger 'at anyone.
You can show your disap-
proval in other ways, which'
he did, but to point fingers at
'the opposition is not wise.
Another point that seemed
to stir the pot is the overhead
and opening of Alachua
Street, which will provide
access to the waterfront and
to Front Street businesses. In '
the future plans of develop-
ment it called for some con-
struction of condos for down-
town living. This development
lies north, where the much
needed cleanup by the city
and private investor is need-:
'ed. Will it add a tax base
increase to the city? I believe
it will bring new owners who'
pay.taxes, and will affect the
downtown businesses as well.
At the present time, that plan
is on hold and maybe gone.
IThe present buildings on the
lots need to go or be
improvedby new business
moving into the area to sup-
port growth. The purposed
CRA is still in the mix and
needs to be increased for the
success of the entire area.
If the commissioners find a
, source of a low interest rate

"'tuti'on,(2 percent is what I
heard) and they pass up a rate
that later may be higher say
7'-"'percent or whatever -
who will we then blame? I'll

The other disturbing case
was when one of the commis-
sionersiseemed to talk down
to a representative from the
frti of Zev Cohen by insist-
ing that his firm was double

charges to them. A cityfinan-

best way to handle this.
"' Ifithe coming months, the
city will face many challenges

negative about everything,
how about being more posi-

'We are all of this place
F ernandina Beach is a wonderful town
and a terrific place to live.
Who could have thought eight
years ago when Dee and I chose
to buy our home here that volunteering as
mentors for Take Stock in Children and'serv-
ing on its board, being involved in historic
preservation and restoration, supporting
improvements for the city library, serving on a
city board, working on a FSCJ committee, par-
ticipating in our community's Christmastime -
house tours would, in the eyes of some, entitle
us to patrician-like "Gucci" status ("Bullying?"
on Dec. 7).
For a woman who grew up on her family's
struggling dairy farm in upstate New York and
for a kid who was raised in an apartment in the
Bronx it is both mysterious and mystical. I am
sure it would be as baffling to my eastern
European immigrant grandparents as it might
be bewildering to Dee's 83-year-old still work-
ing farmer father. We do not own a Gucci bag,
not even a "knock-off." Maybe it is our modest
contribution to Cats Angels that put us over the
top or that Dee is distantly related to Martin
Van Buren. It is hard to'determinine what the cri-
teria for selection are.

"Ilk" in its original use was a territorial des-
ignation meaning "of the same place." Those of

We all are of the city of Fernandina Beach.
There are those who dispute that we are a
community. What is most disheartening about
what has appeared as comment on this page
and elsewhere is the angry rhetoric. Rhetoric
that has promoted division; appealed to the self-
concerned and self-indulgent among us;
renewed historic quarrels; suggested the false
dichotomy of "blomtown and hometown;" and
implied a conflict between the electorate and
the "governing class." While it may sell news-
papers, encouraging dissension results only in
political polarization and dysfunction.

han one deck was being stacked.
In a (Dec. 7) letter to the editor
rom John Cascone, he asked "Who is
)ee Torre?" and referred to "her ilk"
n a derogatory manner at least four
imes. Let me share just a bit about
one of our model citizens who also
ecdntly wrote to the News-Leader of
her concerns about bullying (Nov. 30).
Early in her career, Dee was a read-
ng and special education teacher who
pent years in the classroom and has
devoted more than 30 years to
research, grant writing and helping
improve low-performing schools
across the country. She inspired and
encouragedd her two children; her son,
a skilled chef, learned to cook in his
mother's kitchen and now works at
ne of Amelia Island's premier hotel
properties; her daughter followed in
ler mother's footsteps and is now on a
ellowship to study urban education.
Now that her children are leading their
own successful lives, Dee has spent
he last several years as a mentor with
Take Stock in Children, helping
encourage and support local children
without that kind of care and support
In addition, Dee has used her grant-
writing skills to help several local non-
profits obtain funding for projects.
She's worked tirelessly to help expand
library funding from external sources.
you'lll also find Dee volunteering for
he Museum of History or attending a
varietyy of fundraisers for local non-
profits. Though she still actively works
n education consulting and research to
improve evaluation and performance of
our schools, she manages to find time
o contribute to the betterment of our
This is Dee Torre, a girl who grew
up on a farm and now resides in our'
historic downtown with her husband,
Adam Kaufman. A descendent of three
U.S. presidents, she holds genuirie con-
cern about our stewardship of historic
assets. Like Adam,; she is a model'of
civic pride and patriotism and has cho-
sen to actively put her skills, experi-
ence, network and passion to work in
our community for the greater good.
..Despite rumors to the contrary,
since our husbands have the same last
name, we are not related but for our
friendship and values we hold in com-
mon. As for "her ilk," I am reminded
that there are many good, caring peo-,
pie in our community- some who grew
up here and many who have moved
here from other places. There's far
more we have in common and much
more we have to gain by focusing on
the good of our community. We each
choose to contribute to or detract from
that community spirit with our actions
and our words.
Donna Paz Kaufman
I am writing in response to attorney
John Cascone's question in the Dec. 7
issue: "Who is Dee Torre?" To set the
record straight, she is the wife of Adam
Kaufman --who is the kingpin behind
, the "Forward Fernandin.a" plan. Her
comments .and abrasive behavior
should be judged accordingly. ,
I feel the Fernandina Beach voters
got it right in the November city elec-
tion, when Sarah Pelican received twice
as many votes as opponent John Elwell
(who is now being financially backed
by both Forward Fernandina and
Friends of the Library supporters).
Yes, the clouds have disappeared and
now the sky shows it true colors.
(former city commissioner)
The Forward Fernandina plan will
only benefit a few property owners that
own property on Front Street. If any
infrastructure is put in it should be on
Eighth Street not Front Street. It
looksterrible when people come into
town. If underground utilities were put
in there and some landscaping done it
would look so much better. Think
about how many times this past year
someone has hit a utility pole on Eighth
Street and knocked out power to the
whole downtown area.
A replica of the old casino at Main
Beach would be nice with a bowling
alley, dance floor, skating rink and a
restaurant so the young people would
have someplace to go but the truth is
nothing should be done now because
no one has any money to do it with. Put
everything on hold for now no more
fees for Zev Cohen scrap the post
office plan, leave the library where it is
and expand into their courtyard if nec-
essary but they certainly don't need
that two-story building with minimal
parking. The current library-is a one-
story handicap-accessible building with'
a huge city parking lot beside it.
SOn another iote the city com-
Smission should put the small festive
lights back oni the trees on Centre
Street It looks so drab and dreary now
- and to think that the present city
commissioners spent $40,000 on this
terrible project that only lights up the
base of the trees makes me ill. I recent-
ly wentto the St Johns Town Centre in
Jacksonville and it was so beautiful at
night with the little white lights on all
the trees -then I came back here and
drove down Centre Street and itwas so
dark and scary looking. This must be

It's Christmas put the lights back
on the trees like they use to be. To the
best of my knowledge they were put up
for Christmas one year and they looked
so beautiful the commissioners decid-
ed to leave them up all year. So-what if
the present lights save a little on the
electric bill. I would rather have the
little festive lights back than spend the
$6 million on the Forward Fernandina

and reflecting on the past year, I want
to take a moment to express my grat-
itude to the News-Leader and its staff.
While I obviously cannot speak for the
entire nonprofit community, as edu-
cation director of Amelia Island
Museum of History I have witnessed
the newspaper's unwavering support
for this community and its vital non-
profit organizations over the years. I
am consistently impressed by the
lengths that they will go to help pro-

As anyone affiliated with a non-
profit knows, begging for resources
is par for the course. Without excep-
tion, the News-Leader has proven to
be an invaluable ally of the museum,
and indeed numerous other organi-
zations in our area. I challenge each
and every staff or friend of a local
nonprofit organization to reach out
and thank the staff of the News-Leader
for their continued dedication to our
collective cause to make Fernandina
Beach a better place to live and
I am proud to have the News-Leader
as my local newspaper.

towards charter school stu-

the school boards to pass the
funding through *charter

With the holidays in full swing, there are many stressors that can contribute to the "holiday
headache." Although it may be a festive.time of year to celebrate with friends, family, and great food,
it is also a time when your daily routine is out of sync. The kids are out of school, your in-laws are com-
ing, and you're preparing for the big event. You have so much going on that you don't know where to
begin.All this stress can cause headaches... literally.
Headaches are one of the most common complaints seen in the doctor's office. There are many pos-
sible causes. Here are some common headache types, their symptoms and treatments. If your
headaches are frequent, consult your doctor.

The key to successful treatment is recognition and prevention. Headaches tend to com'e in times of in-
creased stress, anxiety, and sleep-depnvation, all of which commonly occur during the holiday season.
Your-brain craves-routine, and functions on a.circadian rhythm, or time-clock. What your brain needs is
'the exact opposite of what the holiday season gives us.
Here are some fundamental steps in preventing the holiday:headache.
Modify your lifestyle:
Regulate your sleep. Don't nap or sleep excessively. Go to bed at the same hour every night;, and wake
iup at the same hour every morning, especially during.the holidays, no exceptions.
Regulate your eating schedule. Don't skip meals. This is one of.the most common migraine triggers. If
you have'three square meals a day, eat at the same time every day.
Regulate your exercise routine. If you walk or jog, do so at the same time every morning or evening.
Exercise causes the brain to release endorphins, your body's own pain-killers.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Dehydration means there is less blood volume in your brain, which places
traction on your blood vessels, leading to head pain. Drink 4-6 glasses of water per day.
Manage your stress. Place an emphasis on stress management this season. Make the time for physical
exercise, an outlet, a laugh, a massage, or %oga. Make time for yourself, otherwise \ou can't make time
Avoid common headache triggers:
Strong scentslodors: Some of us know that strong scents will trigger our headaches (ie. scented can-
dle stores, perfume and colognd sections, etc.). Do your best to avoid these sections. If you're like me,
,my migraines are instantly set off by that gassy airline smell just prior to take off. Wear a mask until
you're up in the air : : .
Stress letdown: You work so hard to get your jobs in order, and try to complete that final project be-
fore your vacation, and now it's time to let down, right? Wrong. Keep your schedule routine.
Eyestrain: If you wear glasses, make sure your prescription is current. Try to avoid bright or glaring
lights, fluorescent lighting, flashing lights or computer screens. Time for'those nifty shades, even. in-
doors if necessary.
Fatigue: Regular healthy eating and cardio exercise will help to stave off fatigue.
Stressful travel plans: With all the delays at the airport, missed flights, and the 'headache' of dealing
With airline personnel, there is no wonder that we all have headaches. Ele mentally prepared for delays
or changes. Prepare the brain for the worst, but hope for the best.
.Food: The following table lists foods that have been shown to trigger migraine headaches. If y6u are sus-
ceptible to headaches, avoiding or moderating your intake of these foods cabnhelp you avoid headaches
and enhance youiir enjoyment of the holidays.

putt from off the green, and followed that
up with a 4-footer on No. 15 for birdie. Bradley and Steele had a chance
at the tournament record of 34-under, but parred No. 16 and 18 coming in.
SLuke Donald became the first
V-.\. golfer to win both the PGA Tour
.-"^ & and European Tour money titles,
'\ finishing third in the Dubai World
Championship on Sunday behind winner Alvaro
Quiros. Donald, the top-ranked player who won
the PGA title earlier this year, had to finish better
than ninth or hope Rory.Mcllroy didn't win the
tournament. Mcllroy was weakened with a virus
all week and tied for 11th at 9-under-par 279.
That left Mcllroy more than $1.34 million behind
Donald in the money race, "You know, this is
something I've wanted for the past few months,
to try to win both money lists," Donald said. "It's
very strange because I looked at the leaderboard
on 13 and couldn't see Rory."
One of those awkward shots that can really be mastered with a bit of practice is when
'- your shot lies up against a tree and you can not take your normal stance. As you may
expect; you will need to turn your body around and do the opposite of what you
'E normally do. You want to use irons with the biggest faces (wedge or 9-iron) and flip it
-I f over to match your flipped stance. As you prepare to make your swing, the first piece
7'1. 4 w of advice is to not take a full swing. A short backswing will eliminate any errors since
you are not used to swinging the club this way (backwards). You also want to abbreviate the follow-
through, trying to keep your right arm straight (normally, you want to keep your left arm straight). Try
this technique out a few times and you should be able to get a good grasp.opf it fairly quickly.
