Jacksonvillewould

had drafted Tebow


Tim Tebow is effusively
thankful to his Lord. And the
Jacksonville Jaguars should
be eternally thankful they
didn't draft the spiritual quar-
terback last year. So should
Jacksonville fans.
The moribund organiza-
tion assured itself of a partly
empty stadium for the fore-
seeable future. And like
Tebow sidestepping a blitz-
ing linebacker, the Jaguars
avoided the. hysterical media
storm surrounding "Tebow-
mania." Just think of how big
their public-relations depart-
ment would need to be to
handle this type of "uproar."-
There was the Tebow
book-signing here, where
fans showed up two days
early. There was the first-
annual golf tournament here
to benefit Tebow's own chari-
''o table foun-
dation (ini

onships in college and fos-
tered the success of former
Gator coach Urban Meyer.
All Tebow has done in the
NFLis take a below-average
team in the Denver Broncos
to a division title and a first-
round playoff win over the
defending conference cham-
pion Pittsburgh Steelers.
When Tebow took over as
starter, the Broncos were 1-4
and had just traded away
their best receiver in
Brandon Lloyd.
. Many felt Broncos'
general manager John Elway
was answering the fahs'
screams forTebow with the
underlying and unspoken
hope of seeing him fail.'
Tebow would have nothing
of this.
His popularity has expo-
nentially exploded. His prac-
tice of giving thanks by
kneeling and praying on the
field is widely identified as
"tebowing" and has been
established as a verb.by an
online dictionary,
'He engineered five
remarkable come-from-
behind victories and created
a furor and mania that few
can duplicate. He is the inspi-.
rational and heartwarming
story of this season.
Meanwhile, the most excite-
ment in Jacksonville came
from the curly-Q mustache of
its new owner (who will
probably move the team in
three years due to a lack of
success and fan support.
So what does Tebow
humbly say at the press con-
ference after a dazzling dis-
play.of passing and running .
arid decision-making in the
victory over the vaunted
Steelers
"I'm juit so blessed to be.
able to play quarterback for
the Denver Broncos." And to
think he could have been
talking about the
Jacksonville Jaguars.

'New' secondhand store



benefits animal shelter


The Nassau Humane
Society has opened a new
retail store to raise funds for its
animal shelter on Airport
Road.
The Second Chance store
at 312 South Eighth St. will
offer "gently used" items
such as clothing, household
items, furniture, collectibles,
books and videos. "All pro-
ceeds from this store will go to
help the homeless animals at
our shelter get a second
chance at life," said Penny
Landregan, a longtime NHS
volunteer who will be the
shop's manager.
It will also build on the suc-
cess of the Humane Society's
annual "flea and tick" garage
sales and book sales at the
Fernandina Beach airport.
"We'll have great bargains
.--1' in.- like at the l. 1 :,anI
tick' sales, but now you can
get them every day-instead of
just twice a year," Landregan
said.
All of the staff will be vol-
unteers and all. of the mer-
.chandise will be donated, she
said. As volunteers worked to
ready the shop for its grand
opening, items on display


included everything from patio
furniture and couches to
housewvares and dog bowls.
The store will also feature a
book room where buyers can
browse books and videos, and
a children's room with toys,
games and baby items.
"The merchandise will
change daily as we get new
donations," Landregan said.
Donations are always needed,
and anyone with' items to
donate is asked to call the
store at (904) 321-0022.
(Please no TVs or computers.)
Second Chance will be
open Monday-Saturday, 10
a.m. to 5 p.m.
"This store has been my
dream for the Humane Society
ever since I started volunteer-
ing with them" eight years
ago, said Landregan, who also
organizes the '"flea and tick"
garage sales at the airport a
mammoth logistical task. The
next one will be Feb. 17-18.
"This store'will be an easi-
er, more consistent way to
raise money for the shelter,
and more convenient for cus-
tomers," she said.
The sales have been vital
fundraisers for the humane


society's operations, and
Landregan said she's confident
the new store will also become.
a valuable revenue source.
"The homeless dogs and cats
at our shelter will get more
food, more treats, more med-
ical care because of money
raised through Second
Chance," she said.
She's no stranger to oper-
ating such a store, she
owned a successful consign-
ment shop in Kentucky, "so I,
have plenty of experience at
this." It has also been plenty of
work, and she credits the loyal
corps of volunteers at NHS for
making it happen. "We could-
n't do it without them," she
said.
Landregan hopes everyone
will drop by to check out the
bargains and help the local ani-
ro, -'ll Ii, -r give homeless pets
a second chance.
"This is going to be suc-
cessful," she said. "We have
such a wonderful community,
and there's so much support
for the Humane Society. And
we have a great location -you
couldn't ask for a better loca-
tion. We're ready, and we can't

Boys & Girls gala features


'most inspiring' woman


A nationally recognized
author, inspirational speaker,
executive coach, former ath-
lete, mother and TV personali-
ty NBC Nightly News called
her "one of the five most inspir-
ing women in America" will
keynote the fifth annual benefit
for the Boys & Girls Clubs of
Nassau County.
Bonnie St John will speak at
the event, which begins at 6
p.m. Feb. 24 at The Ritz-
Carlton, Amelia Island. The gala
event also will feature a silent
auction held during a cocktail
hour preceding dinner. Auction
items range from a fishing trip
in Alaska to resort and hide-
away visits to works of art.
When coupled with atten-
dance at the gala, the auction
provides a major share of sup-
port for operation of the two
local Boys & Girls Clubs.
St. John grew up in a low-
income, crime-ridden environ-
ment near Los Angeles and lost
a leg at age five to a medical
disorder. Yet she graduated
magna cum laude from
Harvard University, earned her
master's degree in economics
at Oxford University as a
Rhodes scholar and served as
director, of the White House
National Economic Council in
the Clinton Administration.
In 1984, she competed in the
Paralympics in Austria and was
the first African-American to
win medals in downhill ski rac-
ing: one silver and two bronze
medals. "I was ahead in the
.slalom. But in the second run,
everyone fell at a dangerous
spot. I was beaten by a woman
who got up faster than I did. I
learned that people fall down,
winners get up and gold-medal
winners get up faster," St. John
said. That quote has been fea-
tured on a Starbucks beverage
mug.
St. John is the author of four
books: Succeeding Sane, Getting
Ahead at Work, Money: Fall
Down? Get Up! and How Strong
Women Pray.
During the celebration of
Black History Month in 2007
she was honored by President
George W. Bush, who said:
"(Bonnie) is the kind of person
you really want to be around,
and the kind of person that
shows individual courage mat-
ters in life."
: As a child, St, John found
an important source of support


( I





Bonnie St. John

back home in what was the
Girls Club. So she was eager
to come to Amelia Island and
give her support to Boys &
Girls Clubs here. Her life is an
example of the success that can
derive from achieving the goals
of Boys & Girls Clubs: to
inspire and enable all young
people, especially those from
disadvantaged circumstances,
to realize their full potential as
productive, responsible and car-
ing citizens.
Another quote from Bonnie
-St. John illustrates why her
words at the benefit will be so
meaningful: "I have faced so
many difficult life situations
myself healing from sexual
abuse, and family dysfunction,
having my leg amputated as a
child, facing race and gender
discrimination, learning to be a


mom, home-schooling and
more." She believes: "Everyone
has the God-given capacity to
live joyfully it doesn't depend
on your circumstances. But it
does require that you make the
choice to identify your joys in
life and take action to reach
them."
St. John's experience of
bouncing back from adversity
has taught her that there is no
"magic bullet" that solves all
problems with the snap of a fin-
ger. No one diet works for all
body types. No one type of emo-
tional support or healing works
for all personality types. She
has discovered that the secret
to her resilience and personal
growth is building a patchwork
quilt of solutions just for her:
various exercise programs, sup-
port of friends, spending time in
nature, seeking expert knowl-
edge, reading books and, of
course, relying on prayer for
guidance.
She doesn't say that what
works for her will solve every-
one's problems. But her goal
is to always present a myriad of
choices to help make the deci-
sions easier and the ultimate
path to joy clearer for a variety
of people.

as property
A. Michael Hickox, a state-certified appraiser
and a licensed real estate broker with over 34
years of real estate and appraisal experience, has
filed as a candidate for Nassau County Property
Appraiser.
Hickox, a Republican, is one of four candi-
dates who have filed to seek the job now held by
Tammy Stiles. The others are Todd Ericksen
and Patty Fentriss, both Republicans, and William
F Caulkins Sr., who is not affiliated with a politi-
cal party.
The Republican primary election is Aug. 14.
The general election is Nov. 6.
Hickox is a native of Nassau County and a life-
.long resident. He is an active full-time real estate
appraiser who said in a campaign announcement
that he has personally appraised over 10,000
properties in Nassau County, which makes him
"uniquely qualified for the office of property
appraiser."
After graduating from Fernandina Beach High
School, Hickox attended FCCJ where he studied
business management and accounting. He
became interested in the real estate business at
an early age and attended the Florida Real Estate
Institute where he received his real estate license
in 1977. He completed his first written appraisal
in 1980.
In 1984 Hickox founded Eight Flags Realty,
which operated until 1989 when he and Bruce
Jasinsky purchased the Coldwell Banker
Franchise and opened Coldwell Banker Jaskinsky
and Hickox,-Inc. Changes in federal and state
license law opened the door for Hickox to pursue
an appraisal career in 1992 when he sold his
interest h the real estate business and started
appraising full time for Hollis, Wilson, and
Wagand, Inc.
In 1995 'he founded A. Michael Hickox
Appraisal Services, Inc. Since that time he has
appraised over 10,000 properties throughout
Nassau County and has taken over 50 appraisal
classes through The Florida Real Estate Institute,
Appraisal Institute, Bert Rogers Real Estate
School and McKissock Data Systems.
Hickox currently serves as a director for the
Amelia Island-Greater Nassau County Association
of Realtors. He has been actively involved with the
association since its formation in the early 1980's.
He has been a member of or chaired numerous
committees on the state and local level. In 1986
he chaired the Education Committee where he
taught numerous classes-to local members. He
has continued to support this committee by teach-
ing classes most every year since.
Hickox chaired the Professional Standards
Committee for the local association where he
presided over arbitration hearings and held medi-
ations, which kept disputes out of the court sys-

appraiser
tem. In addition to his commit-
tee work, he has served numer-
ous times as a director. He
served as secretary/treasurer
in 1987, president-elect in 1988
and president in 1989. Under
his leadership as president, the
local realtors association
Hickox received two distinguished state
awards, The Florida Association
of Realtors Board Achievement
Award and the George Linville Education Award.
The members of the association recognized
Hickox for his many contributions by selecting
him "Realtor of the Year" in 1986.
In addition to local involvement, Hickox
served on the state level as a Florida Association
of Realtors director, a member of the state
Professional Standards Committee and the RPAC
Committee. As a result of his involvement on
the local and state level he became the first mem-
ber from Nassau County to be inducted into the
FAR Honor Society.
In 1991 Hickox was selected by the 13 asso-
ciations of realtors in Northeast Florida to serve
as the Florida Association of Realtors District 1
vice president. As a district vice president, he
served on the executive committee at the state
level where he represented 13 associations of
realtors.
Hickox has also been involved with the local
community where he has served as a director of
the local YMCA, chamber of commerce and
Kiwanis Club: As a director for the local chamber
of commerce, he chaired the Community
Development Committee. He also worked with
the local YMCA as a basketball coach for many
years.,,
Hickox and his wife, Erin, have four adult
children and are avid horse lovers who breed,
raise and show American Quarter Horses. His
show career has taken him from Ocala to
Augusta, Ga., to-Fort Worth, Texas. In 2008 he
was the Florida Cutting Horse Association's
$50,000 Amateur Champion. His other interests
include hunting and playing the bass guitar.
Hickox promised the public he would be "fair
and accessible; open transparent and follow the
law, consistent application of appraisal method-
ology, update, integrate and communicate data to
the public and other departments, reduce petition
filings with the Value Adjustment Board, reduce
legal fees, run the office like a business (and) put
the office budget online."
Hickox has planned a campaign rally for Jan.
26 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Woman's Club in
Fernandina Beach. The public is invited to come
out and meet him and hear more about his cam-

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Uke father like son
The News-Leader front-page arti-
cle (Jan. 6) confirming the city fran-
chise fee hike will go forward is
just another "government" exam-
ple that some leaders in our com-
munity, just like Congress and the
White House, have lost touch with
the people they serve. Primarily
those of us who used to think of
ourselves as the "Middle Class.".
Like many destination location com-
munities, people around Amelia
Island will soon be going through
another round of layoffs as several
small businesses close and anchor
stores like Kmart go out of busi-
ness.
The new taxes support a'multi-
million dollar Forward Fernandina
plan that will put most of the money
into already wealthy pockets. In
case you didn't know, the $1.9 mil-
lion is just the -tip of the iceberg.
Total costs are expected to run
another $7-plus million and guess
who is going to be asked to pay for
it?
As a realtor, the predictions for
additional value losses for homes;
condos and land values for the next
12 to 24 months is a high probabil-
ity. Just go out and ask someone
whether they.are upside down on
their mortgage? Or ask what the
latest offer was on their property.
This will mean more "short sales,"
foreclosures and bankruptcies. "
More people who already do not
have the money to pay for shelter
and food for their families will be
asked to pay more through a tax
increase to fund a project when we
can least afford it. One other strange
outcome was the bidding process.
The top two companies were select-
ed, but the city commission decid-
ed at the last minute to give the bid
to bidders who finished third and
fourth.
At least this decision did not go
'unchallenged and two commis-
sioners did not support the vote. I
can hardly wait to see what hap-
pens when they ask for the other $7-
plus milliori "projected" to finish the
Forward Fernandina plan.

probably the worst in the history
of the United States. His stimulus
package failed, his Obamacare is
probably unconstitutional, his
appointments worse than imagina-
ble and on and on.'
Mr. Sapp and anyone else that.
voted for Mr. Obama the first time
can be forgiven. They fell for the
hope and change rhetoric but the
thought of doing it again is unfor-
givable. Any one of the Republican
hopefuls, save one or two, is far bet-
ter than what we have.
Despite Mr. Sapp's stature in the
conimunity, someone had to chal-
lenge him. It is a shame that his
national view ruins the effective-
ness of his views on local issues. I
wouldn't believe him if he said it
was cold outside, which it is.

However, the political mantra of
both Democrats and Republicans
has been amazingly consistent, with
few exceptions.
Regarding the size arid influence
of the federal government, post Civil
War philosophies of our two par-
ties are consistently different. There
has been financial corruption on
both sides, which can be factually
documented. During the past cen-
tury, there have been middle-road
Democrats and Republicans, with
extremes on. both sides. Of inter-
est is the degree to which the art of
politics has worked in both positive
and negative directions, depending
on how you view them.
One of the most dynamic and
thought-provoking contrasts in
American political history has been
political/geographic locations of the
population. The north and south-
eastern states, the mid-westerrn sec-
tion of the- country arid finally the,
growth of the far west all have their
own stories and political develop-
ment. A two-volume history of the
life and times of Lyndon Johnson,
loaned to me by.a friend, describes
one political figure who served in
the House, Senadte and as president
who truly can be characterized as'
purely political, both positive and
negative.
Author Robert Caro atone point
'stated that certain senators stood.for,

in economic, policy (usually
Republicans) while others (usually
Democrats) believed in strong gov-


ernmental oversight Johnson
stood for "nothing" except himself
and his own interests. Perhaps the
best definition of the man was that
he was a tireless, consummate politi-
* cian! However, there was a time
when, if you wanted to get a bill
through Congress, you simply had
to work positively with "Lyndon" -
.if not, your cause was dead in the
water. Caro also discussed in detail
how large sums of money changed
hands, involving government lead-
ers and business interests.
Regardless of the methods and
means used by Lyndon Johnson as
a political leader, he knew how to
get things done in Washington.
Ultimately, that meant convincing a
majority of governmental leaders
to vote a particular way. Have things
really changed? Would Johnson
have tolerated the bunk that Obama
has, received from the current
Congress? Has this president
learned positive principles of strong
]eadership? The issues and places
are remnarikably jhe same. The
method of communication, whether
speaking through the Internet or
other mass media forums, has cer-
tainly become' radically different,
but the basic concerns of the
American people stay the same.

VIEWPOINT/DAVID N. SCOTT/FERNAND BEACH ,



If Iwere somewhere else, I'd come here


A few musings, opinions, observations,
questions and random thoughts
about the island and Fernandina
Beach among other things as we
move into 2012:
If the federal government (and I'm not
making this up) can spend $25 billion annually
maintaining unused or vacant federal proper-
ties; give Alaska Airlines $500,000 to paint a
Chinook salmon on a Boeing 737; and spend
$2.6 million training Chinese prostitutes to
drink more responsibly on the job, says the
Heritage Foundation, then would it be fiscally
irresponsible to give Fernandina Beach the
old Centre Street post office and enough
"standby" workers, materials and cash to reno-
vate it? Particularly, as says Heritage, when
not long ago the U.S. Postal Service spent
$13,500 on one dinner at a Ruth's Chris
Steakhouse, including "over 200 appetizers
and over $3,000 of alcohol, including more
than 40 bottles of wine costing more than $50
each and brand-name liquor such as
Courvoisier,; Belvedere and Johnny Walker
Gold." The 81 guests consumed an average of
$167 worth of food and drink apiece. Just ask-,
ing!

I defy anyone who has lived on Amelia
Island for at least six months to walk from
Seventh and Centre Street in Fernandina
Beach toward the marina and not bump into at
least two people they know.

Has Bank of America cleaned up the resi-
dential property they foreclosed on so the resi-*
dents of the island are not stiffed with the bill?
If not, why not? Who's in charge of this local
branch, "It's a Wonderful Life's" Mr. Potter?
When it picks the community's collective
pocket how does it expect locals to bank
there? What say you, BOA?

The oyster beds of Amelia Island were
once as productive as those in Apalachicola on
the Gulf side of the state but that ended long
ago due to industrial pollution. Many say that
is no longer the case and that the state needs
to lift any restrictions on harvesting. When

you see the abundance of
oysters in Egans Creek and
the Amelia River at low tide
you have to wonder if the
time has come.

S Is Amelia Island the
p6tanque capital of '
America? This simple
European game played
Scott with three metal balls and
a small wooden one called
a "pig" on an outdoor sand
and gravel court, is growing in popularity rap--
idly among locals in large part due to the -
efforts of personable Belgium expatriate
Philippe Boets. Monsieur Boets managed to
attract the Open International Championship
Tournament for the island drawing players
from 25 states, Canada and Europe who
poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into
the local economy the. past two years. There
are now three p6tanque courts off the parking
lots south of the marina, one next to one of
Caf6 Karibo's Third Street outdoor patios and
four more being built on.the Beech Street side
of Central Park. The 2012 tournament is prob-
ably on the way. Want to watch or learn to
play? Then go to the harbor courts any.
Saturday from 9:30 a.m. till about noon. Merci
beaucoup, Monsieur Boets.

The voter turnout for the Fernandina
Beach city commissioner elections in
November was 25 percent and then an even
more dismal 20 percent for the runoff. That's
like joining a club with 10 members and letting
two of them make all the decisions not exact-
ly a way to run-a town. If you are not regis-
tered to vote, do so, and if you are registered,
then please vote. It also helps to understand
the issues and the backgrounds of those who .
want to make decisions about your property,
utilities, taxes, schools, etc.

Ever since Capt. Van.died and his grocery-
restaurant on Beech Street across from
Central Park closed, the island lost its last
source of smoked mullet. Surely one restau-
rant or bar on this island can hustle up a batch
of mullet to smoke and sell. They could hon-
estly advertise "the only smoked mullet on the
island." Smoked mullet, a bottle of Texas Pete
and a cold beer is a sure-fire winner. Well, at
least they'd have one regular customer.

No matter how many excursions you take
on one of Captain Kevin McCarthy's boats out
of the Fernandina Beach harbor you'll see
something you've never seen or learn some-
thing you didn't know. This past December,
along with our granddaughter, we saw dol-
phins "herding" a school of fish toward a
beach on an inlet in Cumberland Island,


watched as the fish flopped onto the sand, and
the dolphins jumped but of the water onto the,
beach to eat them and then shimmied back'
into the water. Wow! On top of sights such as
this you will also be treated to historical and
"odd" area facts by Captain Kevin, Pajama
Dave, Captain Kirk, local musicians and ecolo-
gists, among others, depending on which
excursion you choose.
* *
The only two actual beach bars and restau-
rants on the island Sandy Bottoms and.
.Sliders offer views that could be paid attrac-
tions. The new upstairs addition to Sliders pro-
vides a beautiful panoramic view of the ocean,
dunes and beaches while the outside bar at
Sandy Bottoms sits within spitting distance of
the sea. And if you're sipping a beer at the SB
bar inside with its spectacular picture window
views of the ocean arid beach, you'll quickly
understand why the locals call it the "bikini
aquarium." Surfers, submarines, dolphins and
whales are also on the viewing agenda.

Did you know that Spanish galleons 16aded
with gold, silver and jewels were sunk by a
hurricane in about 30 feet of water off the
south end of Amelia Island in the ehrly 1700's?
That's the story the "treasure hunters" at the
Maritime Museum on Eighth Street next to
the abandoned cement plant tell. In fact they
are so sure of it they have legal claims to the
area, diving rights and a 71-foot multimillion-
dollar "lift-boat" to retrieve the treasure.
They've identified one of the galleons, the San
Miguel, and say there are others buried under
the sand. One of Mel Fisher's sons has even
signed 6n and the calculations are that the
treasure of these 300-year-old wrecks is in the
billions, far more than Fisher's gold-laden
galleon Atocha off Key West. Gold coins worth
thousands have been reportedly found in the
dunes near the Plantation, the contents of the
pockets of dead Spanish sailors washed
ashore by the storm after the wreck. Don't
believe it? Coins, nails, etc. from the wrecks
are on display at the museum.

Four new restaurants are popping up in
downtown. Tasty's, a burger place on the cor-
ner of Eighth and Centre opened Christmas
Day; O'Kane's is filling the void left by Indigo
Alley; a new seafood restaurant is slated for
Third Street North; and it is rumored that a
sports bar-is headed for Front Street in the bal-
cony topped building across from the port.
That's appetizing news to start the New Year.
Maybe one of them will serve smoked mullet.

If you didn't have a chance to hear Felix
play Christmas carols on his harmonica down-
town this past December you missed a special
treat. Not only'did he play many of the old
standards but he also managed to belt out that


annual annoyance "Grandma Got Run Over by
a Reindeer." Somehow with Felix's playing it

Remember the mid-1960's movies "The
President's Analyst" and "What's New
Pussycat" where The Phone Company was the
-villain? Well, guess what? It still is. In the mid-
1980s AT&T was broken up, spinning off its-
research lab and the baby bells after success-
ful legal challenges by MClI MCI disappeared
into.a morass of mergers, buyouts and bank-
ruptcies, but like some grade B movie mon-
ster that won't die, AT&T has managed to cob-
ble itself back together and continues to wreck
havoc like Godzilla on crack. Believe me I
would rather deal with the federal government
bureaucracy than the endless chain of "phone
people with no authority" who transfer you
from one bizarre organization to another leav-
ing you on hold most of the time to listen to
AT&T ads. Calling in a concern to AT&T is
like a scene from a Monty Python sketch
including dealing with the "Bureau of Silly
Talk," the "Are You Ready to Give up Yet?" and
"Getting on Your Nerves" departments. Like
the movie monster, politeness, calmness,
logic, letters to company executives and even
Consumer Reports' annual rating putting then
dead last in terms of customer service, fail to
stop it Whdre is the elderly scientist with the
pretty daughter when I need them to help me
find a corripany that can answer simple ques-
tions, untangle my bill and provide a TV,
Internet and phone package at a reasonable
price that is staffed by Earthlings?

Whenever I see the vaporized steam belch-
ing out of the Rayonier and Rock-Tenn smoke
stacks I am thankful for the close to 1,500 jobs
they provide and what wonderful corporate cit-
izens the two companies are in terms of chari-
table works, company volunteers and so much
more. I've met many employees from both
facilities and they are terrific good will ambas-
sadors for their companies. BOA and AT&T
could learn a lot from these two island jewels.

Did you know that it is against the law to
wear iPod speakers in both ears while riding a
bike in Florida? My wife found out when she
got busted in Fort Clinch. Good for the police
for enforcing what I've been telling her since
we moved here.

Items most likely spotted at the return
counters when this past holiday season ended:
exploding Chevy Volts, Solyndra solar panels
and those useless windmills.

Walking to Willow Pond


PHOTOS BY PATFOSTER-TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Visitors on a recent tour along the Willow Pond trail in
Fort Clinch State Park step in closely to see the details
of lichens, above. Right, Carl Watson points ,oit a
"toothache tree" that someone had carved their initials
in and he had tried to repair by dressing the wound.

It's the perfect time of year to get
acquainted with Willow Pond in Fort
Clinch State Park. The bugs are dor-
mant, the humidity is down and the mel-
low temperatures of winter make this
wooded trail a fun place to visit, finally, at
last. During hot summer days only the
stalwart few dare traipse this trail it's
just too bloody uncomfortable for mere
mortals. But in winter, go at it!
And there is no better way to investi-
gate the Willow Pond trail than to take
Carl Watson's guided tour on Saturday
mornings at 10:30 a-m. The tour is free
to anyone who shows up at the Willow
Pond parking lot on the main road inside
the park. You'll have to
pay park admission but
it's inexpensive enough,
only $6 per'vehicle
including up to eight
people, $4 for a single
person in a car or $2 if
you walk or ride your
bike there. Once inside,
you'll soon see its'well
WILD worth the price of
WAYS admission!
Carl is a retired
.." forester and, since the
Pat mid-1990's he has made
Foster-Turley it his job to learn every-
thing about the flora
and fauna of the Willow Pond trail. Not
-only does he lead tours every Saturday
morning for these many years, he also
spends.time during the week keeping
the trail clear, removing fallen branches
in the way, and other trail maintenance
duties. His wife, Judy, is often by his
side, an expert too.
If you walk the Willow Pond trail by-
yourself, even going at a slow pace, it is'
likely to take only 20 minutes or so.
You'll probably admire some beautiful
old live oaks, some berried holly trees,
some duckweed-full ponds, and maybe
hear a woodpecker tapping in the trees.
OK, nice walk, now where to next?
But if you walk the trail with Carl
Watson a whole other world awaits you.
Carl has mastered the fifer aspects .of
nature along the trail and reveals these
secrets to you in an enter training fashion,
full of anecdotes and survival hints and
all kinds of other things you most likely
never thought about before.
Did you know that "horsehair" that
Was used to stuff old car seats was really
Spanish moss that had been processed
to remove the outer layer? "Think about
it. There dre not enough horses in the
world to produce enough "horsehair" to
fill all the car seats," says Carl on one
recent tour. And besides this, "Spanish
moss is neither Spanish, nor a moss,"
Carl continues to explain. And then, if ,


you're like me, you're hooked.
On a winter tour with Carl one morn-
ing I learned a lot that was new to me,
and I'm no stranger to the woods. I
learned how to make lichen tea, if I so
desired, and various uses of saw palmet-
to berries. now commercially gathered
and turned into health food items that
promote "sexual and reproductive health
in men," or so the ads say.
When we were talking about saw pal-
metto. how old the plants can live (hun-
dreds of years, it turns out), one guest
on the tour, a naturalist herself, asked
Carl about tortoise beetles that live on
the palmetto. Not only did Carl know
about them, he looked around for a few,
seconds, and soon found., one on the
underside of a leaf, and showed it to'us.
NoWv that's impressive! The little insect,
black with yellow legs, was not much
bigger than a pinhead, but Carl found it.
on demand and told us lots of facts about
it, too.
Along this particular hour and a half.
walk. we savw an alligator snapping turtle


sunbathing in a dry area near the pond.
We saw different trails and signs of deer,
raccoons, armadillos, alligators and wild
hogs. We learned about lichens and fun-
gus and hedgehog mushrooms and saw
biodiversity of these species firsthand on
a single fallen tree trunk. We learned
about "toothache trees" (aka Hercules,
clubs) that produce a mild anesthetic in
their bark that settlers used to control
toothache pain, about roots of stinging
nettles that aire good to eat, and about
holly berries that work as a purgative.
And most of all, we learned a rever-
ence for nature in all its forms, told by a
master naturalist without par. But don't
take my word for it. Join Carl on a
Saturday tour of Willow Pond and see for:
yourself. You won't be sorry, I promise.
Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on
Amelia Island, temporarily on assignment
in Bangkok, Thailand. While she is gone
she especially welcomes your nature ques-
tions and observations.

Seniors vs Crime

A Special Prject of the Florida Ato ney G ra




Scam of the Week:


Bogus

This title suggests that I
may be writing about banks
charging fees for servicing
chi.eking accounts. However,
most of you can find a neigh-
borhood bank in Fernandina
Beach or Nassau County that
does not charge you for hav-
ing a checking account. I am
talking about-a different type
of charge here one that just
shows up on your bank state-
ment and you don't remem-
ber making the transaction.
Your memory may be hav-
ing a bad day when you go
online to check your bank
transactions or open your
monthly statement. Usually
this is only a short-term
memory loss. By looking at
the checks you have written
or the receipts you have been
given, eventually you figure
out what you did and the
mystery charge is identified.
These days merchants will
ask if you want money back
when you use a debit card to
make a purchase. You will be
surprised at how fast money
disappears from your account
if you get used to this prac-
tice.
But what if you sde the
charge was made at a retail
store in Lexington, Ky., and
you have never been there? A
similar incident was recently
reported to Seniors vs.
.Crime. A couple from
Fernandina Beach was tak-
ing a vacation in California
and while they were there,
someone visited a large retail
sture in Kenlucky. presented
a check with the couple's
account number and bank
routing number for a pttr-

Fish deep for trout, reds and more


Backwater bay and tidal river water
temperatures have fallen from the
low 60s into the mid to low 50s in just
a few weeks. Cooler water tempera-
tures are also dictating how backwater fish
both feed and inigrate during the winter fish-
ing season.
"My son Gavin and I have been fishing in
the creeks while bumping led head jigs rigged
with plastic tails and also drifting live shrimp
along deep river banks," said Fernandina
Beach's Gene Velardo. "Just
the other day we caught and
released some 30 redfish and
sea trout while keeping a
limit for dinner.
"Myson Gavin loves to
fish in the backwaters, where
we have targeted deep banks
of tidal creeks, where plenty
of oyster bars and marshes
OUTDOORS supply a variety of food for
.... winter gamefish.
"Gavin has really enjoyed
erryLacoss being out on the water and
simply loves to cast his spinning rod and reel.
Gavin has also caught his fair share of backwa-
ter fish too."
The months of October, November and
December bring'some of the best fishing
action of the year for avid saltwater fishermen.
However, when area water temperatures begin
to drop, typically caused by late December
nighttime freezes, water temperatures rapidly
fall from the mid 60s to the low 50s. These
cold water temperatures often remain right
through the months of January and February.
Late February and early March bring
warm nights and air temperatures consistently
remain in the low to mid 60s. It is often the
nighttime air temperatures that dictate area
water temperatures. It can be 70 degrees dur-
ing the late afternoon hours; however, those
long cold winter nights and mornings dictate
.area water temperatures.
This past weekend the water temperature
in Lanceford Creek was a cool 52 degrees.
Drifting live shrimp along boat docks, flooded
) +i," bars andl boat docks during a high
falling tide brought little interest from the
stock of local gamefish.
After landing a non-keeper sea trout'and
releasing the juvenile fish back into the creek..
water, the water felt unusually cold to my
hand. A closer look at myLowrance'fish finder.
and water temperature reading showed a
water temperature of 52 4 degrees.
"Let's adjust our floats so that we are drift-
ing our live shrimp in four to six feet of water,":
I instructed my fishing party, including Keith
Williams, Allen Kanriatel and John Crawford. -
Williams was the first angler to make a
deep drift just offshore of the dock andf oyster-
laden shoreline.. ..
S" Fi,'h. r' WhiV," ipams said m "Fed.Like aL ,
good one too."
Seconds.later, a large Lanceford Creek fish
came to the surface, made a large boilthen
ran deep and pulled the hook. At that point
our fishing party,' particularly Williams, was
disappointed that the big fish had gotten away
However;thiswas definitely an excellent sign
a school of creek fish were school,:i:,ld up in
deep water.
During the winter fishing season backwa-
ter species often hold in deeper water depthsI
:and just offshore of nearby structure, where
gamefish typically held during warmer water
temperatures.
During the next hour of drifting live shrimp
deep, our fishing party .caught a varietyof
backwater gamnefish, including redfish, sea
trout, flounder; and a pair of sheepshead that '
were taken fiom a deep piling.
Just a week earlier, I had taken Robert
MacKay's family fishing, including wife Aida
and sons Robert Jr. and Christopher. Wehad
fished the shallow waters of Tiger Basin,
where water temperatures were much warmer
at 59 to 61 degrees. Every fish that we had
caught was taken from 1-2,feet of water while.'
drifting live shrimp shallow under a small
float.
The cooler water temperatures ofwinter
definitely change the way we backwater fish.

spring:"l get asked all the time about Tiger, what it
was like to work with him," Haney said. "I felt like I
had a front-row seat to golf history. It just kind of
chronicles a little bit of what I went through, what I
dealt with, how I coached and the observations I
made. I think there's a lot of things that people are
going to find interesting." Haney began working
with Woods at the Bay Hill Invitational in 2004.
They parted ways a month after the 2010 Masters,
where Woods made his retum to golf after being
exposed for multiple extramarital affairs that
shattered his image and led to divorce.

k., Some high-handicap golfers don't break 100 because they are weak on their short
game. A good place to practice this short game is to play a testy Par 3 course. Here
you will use mostly your #7, #8, #9 and wedges. A round or two each week on this
format will surely sharpen your skill with short irons. Concentrate on the dub selection
and learn ,when to pitch and when to chip.'Good shots here make easier putts and
I(0 better scores. Set-up properly in comfort. Watch as the ball comes off the dubface,
down the line to the pin. Think pin. It works better than thinking water or bush. A little quick hint
Always tee up on a par three. This allows you to strike the ball safely avoiding all-too-common thin
hits. Think positive. If you think you can, you will.

SA^rOWN


s year, n
It is a new beginning. A new
year full of promise. A clean.slate.
We all have the sense that any-
thing is possible and are deter-
mined to resolve we can make
changes. So the resolution dance
begins.
Resolution lists usually inclu-
de eating less and exercising
more. The gurus of healthy life
styles are full of advice. We have
added another doctor to our leng-
thy lists of doctors. Dr. Oz. His
clever, entertaining advice and
hints are changing many lives.
Another Oprah find, he has now
achieved international stardom.


resolve not to make resolutions


His resolution solution? He focus-
es on three. Eat healthy, improve
your numbers (cholesterol, body
mass index and blood pressure)
and reduce stress.
So the Big Guy and I are try-
ing to follow at least some of Dr.
O's advice. A major change at our
house is sensitivity to the differ-
ent kinds of foods that can make
a difference. Things like saf-
flower oil, green tea, broccoli, cit-
rus fruits, pine nuts, olive oil-and
mly personal favorite, red wine.
The Big Guy and I know the
importance of a regular exercise
routine, but both find it easy to


find an excuse not to get on the
treadmill or exercise bike that
reside in our garage. We are mas-
ters at rationalization. The older
we get, the more difficult it is to
keep our weight down, right? It
couldn't be our self-discipline,
could it? We don't burn the calo-
ries at the same rate we did in our
younger days, or so we would like
to believe. There are as many
excuses as there are extra
pounds. We have found if one
commits, the other will follow.
Team exercise. It works at our
house.
So who started this resolution


business?
The celebration of a new year
is the oldest of all holidays. It was
first observed in ancient Babylon
about 4,000 years ago. In the
years around 2000 BC, Babylo-
nians celebrated the beginning of
a new year on what is- ndw March
23, although they themselves had
no written calendar.
As students of ancient history
know, the Romans continued to
tamper with the traditional date
to mark a new year. When the
calendar was finally synchronized
with the sun, the Roman senate
declared Jan. 1 the official begin-


ning of a new year.
It seems those ancient Babylo-'
nians made resolutions too.
Theirs were more modest than
most of ours. The early Babylo-
nians' most popular resolution
was to return borrowed farm
equipment I don't think the
Romans worked very hard at res-
olutions.
Safest resolution? Make no
resolutions!
