"(Czymbor) never indicated that
he was unhappy with his job," Poynter
said. "What is the situation that
brought us here today?"
Czymbor, who appeared to be hold-

rately with Pelican. and Commissioner
Char-les Corbett earlier in the week
because they had asked for his employ-
ment: contract to be put on Tuesday's
meeting agenda.
"Both of them made It clear to me
(during our meeting) that my servic-
es were rio longer needed," Czymbor
said, "and that the city needed to go in
a different direction."
"I met with Commissioner (ieffrey)

that he had pribposed an "amicable

to approve a settlement agreement
ending the employment of City
Manager Michael Czymbor with the
city of Fernandina Beach.
The special 5 p.m. meeting at City
Hall attracted many Czymbor sup-
porters, including his family, which
sat in the front row,
The settlement agreement, sub-
mitted by City Attorney Tammi Bach,
stipulated Czymbor's last day of
employment as Jan. 27. He is to receive
$112,112.60 in severance pay, accrued
vacation, sick leave and personal leave
and for dental, health, life insurance
and other benefits.
Commissioners Sarah Pelican and
Jeffrey Bunch asked that the contract
be terminated immediately, but in
the end commissioners conceded
Czymbor should stay on the job for
one more week.
Both Czymbor and Bach's employ-
ment contracts were originally put on
the agenda for this week's regular com.

Susan Woodford, executive director
of the Nassau Alcohol, Crime and
Drug Abatement Coalition, told com-
missioners she and colleagues would
be in contact with all affiliate coali-
tions statewide. She said they would be
pressing the issue, through letter writ-
ing and grassroots initiatives, with
county commissions across the state
to draw the attorriey general's attention
to it.
"We lost a 19-year-old Saturday to
a drowning and beating because of K2
(synthetic marijuana) in Clearwater,
Ela., so it is a serious issue," she said.
"It's a tough legal issue. ... But I think
bringing it to the attorney general is
the most appropriate measure at this
point"
Woodford said she~had spoken with
law enforcement officials and the
biggest problem lying in the way of a
ban is enforcement Many of the syn-
thetic drugs sold, she noted, are
sprayed with multiple compoundS -
making it difficult to test for the sub-
stances and presenting an added dan-
ger for the drugs' users.
DRUGS Continnued on 3A


Faced with the spread and sale of
synthetic dr-ugs in Nassau County,
county commissioners are looking for
help fiom Tallahassee. Commissioners
voted last week to ask Filorida Attorney
General Pam Bondi for assistance in
facilitating a ban on the drugs.
Commissioner Danny Leeper and
County Attorney David Hallman visit-
ed the state Capitol earlier this month
on a fact-gathering mission regarding
the issue.
Hallman said Bondi is considering
an emergency order banning the sale
of synthetic marijuana, following a
midyear order in 2011 banning the
sale of abitsed bath salt products.
Commissioner Walter Boatright
said he was glad Yulee resident Elton
B3youm brought the issue to his atten-
tion and that the board supports
Bondi's action 100 percent.
The issue surfaced at a Dec. 12
meeting when Bynum urged the board
to take immediate action. He was
present again Jan. 9, demanding the
same.
"Why do the citizens of Nassau
,County have to fight to get the pro-
te~ctions we have a right to?" he asked
commissioners. "Can't the (Florida
Department of Imw Enforcement) be
of any assistance? Can't the state uni-
versity be called upon to test for these
poisonls? Can t we make a plea to the
medlical examiner's office? Can we not
call on other counties to ask how they
are enforcing their bans? Can we ask

The court has ordered a
mental health evaluation of
Gregory David Isrkin,,convict-
ed last week of killing his par-
.ents, Dick and Myra Lar-kin of
Amelia Island. A judicial review
of the case is set for Thui-sday.
Larkin, 38, represented him-
,self at his capital murder trial
Jan. 9-10 in Nassau County
Circuit Court and on Thursday
rejected Judge Robert Foster's -
recommendation that he retain
counsel for his sentencing, set
for next Tuesday.

He said it is. difficult to
enforce bans of synthetic com-
pounds because as soon as one
compound is outlawed, manu-
facturers modify it or introduce
new ones entirely, to "skir~t the
intent of the law."' This beh~avior-
for~ces legislators to ban addi-
tional compounds as they
emerge, he said.
The issue places law
enforcement officials ina
unique situation because one
aspect of enforcing the law is
providing public safety, said
Hurley. Part of that public safe-

wouldn't we allow him a transi-

"I don't feel I can work with

asked. "I ask what the diffe~r-
ence is. .
Pelican said the w-ttleernt
agreement and the original
employment contract we/re 'di'
tinctly different packages,-ardd'
ing that the settlement package
"looks like a golden parachute."
"With all due respctc, you re
wrong," Czymbor tollld Pe'lican.
"I'm resigning under protestr ..
your motion is not appropriate:.
Bach said she had compared
the settlement and employment
contracts and "there is no dif-
ferernce."
Pelican withdrew her- motion
and another motion was made
to approve the settlement con.
tract. But Bunch said he wanted
to amend that to make the con-
tract effective immediately,
rather than give Czymbor tw~o
weeks, which Pelican second-
ed.
"I hope this is an appropriate,
reasonable way to button up all
the loose ends," Czymbor said.
"T~his is an agreement all par-
ties have to agree on ... I ask for
a week to get my affairs in order
as opposed to immediate r-esig-
nation."
"Obviously, there's some vin.
dictiveness here," Poynter said.


Reprirnands~onf icts
City Manager Mnichael Czymbor, hired in 23006, wa for-
maily reprimanded twie during his first year on the job for
work performed on a marina dredging project that wias not
approved by the commission.
Czymb~or and then City Attomey Debra Braga were both
reprimanded in March 2007 for "sloppy worf on an emeir-
gency dune enhancement project at the beach. Czym~bor
was also criticized. but not reprimanded, in early 2008 for
spending impact fees without commission atpproval.
Czymbor also had a personality conflict with then Fire
Chief Danny Leeper, which ultimately resulted in Leeper's
resignation, as well as the resignation of former Fire Matrshall
Jeffrey Bunch. Bunch subsequently won election as a city
commissioner, Leeper as a county commissioner.
Czymbor was also criticized for promoting an unpopular
paid-parking plan, accepting a new city vehicle when his cur-
rent vehicle had 26,000 miles on it, trying to ground street
peddler Felix Jones and for supporting the controversial
Forward Fernandina strategic plan.

While Kohl's and

expanding, sorne chains like
Kmart and Food Lion are
contracting. This is the cold
way of life in the retail sector
the strong and popular
often get stronger and more
popular.
Some tiny, mom-and-pop
retailers can withstand the .

tomer service and a niche
product strategy. There is
always elbowroom among .
the heavyweights to capture
a profitable slice of market
share. '

phase.
Representatives of the
new shopping/business com-
plex have even contacted the
owner-s of retail businesses
in other areas, like in down-
town Fernandina Beach.
According to reports, repre
Ssentatives have solicited


owners of downtown retail
outlets to expand to or move

There are also changes

there are so many talented

Another- change from tra-

Dance Trance members have

Amelia Community Theatre
and the Amelia Island

participated in a Halloween-

also seen closer to home with
a "Flash Mob" performance
on Centre Street promoting
Small Business Saturday.
"Performing is totally
optional, but, with Dance

While there are no major

that would come from the
park (other than rental of
pavilions, vendor royalties,

indirect economic benefits to
be had. Currently, other than
a couple of the pocket parks

no parks west of Eighth

Over the last few months,
a number of local architects
and design and engineering
professionals have volun-

and finalize the conceptual
design for the park from the
plan that was approved by the
city commission in 2009. A
small number of changes
were necessary to the 2009
plan, including the boat ramp

there has been a
substantial amount
of work done by citi-

community to finalize a plan
that will result in the develop
ment of a river front park on
the city-owned property along
the Amelia River. Many in our
community have been work-
ing towards this goal for 40 or
more years. During the com-

hosted by the Water fronts

tors. The benefits will flow out
to other supporting business
such as lodging, dining, retail
and recreational providers. A
healthier business community
and the revenue streams they
provide reduce the tax bur-

owners. This positive eco-
nomic trend for our communi-
ty will provide a return on our
city's investment many times
over.
As the city commission
moves into the budget
process for the 2012-13 year,
hopefully it will continue the
progress that has been made
on making the vision of the

combination of r-ecreational

donations could make the
paruk a reality by the end of

out a contract heavily weight-
is ed in their favor, well, the
8!112,000 severance figure
should have caused little
heartburn. By the w~ay I
don't accept that premise,
and if you believe as I do that
the framers of the city's char-
ter got it right and that the
DEBATfE city manager "serves as the
pleasure of the city commis-
AND sion,- well, we couldn't get to
TACRLE the Tums bottle fast enough.
*Given the city's negoti-
ated obligations under the
Ron Sapp contract, I was disappointed
that it wasn't accepted imme-
diate~ly and unanimously. The $112,000 num-
ber is a lot of money and his staying on the job
post-settlement is unique and a little weird but,
and this is important, very important, what
w~as on the table was not the issui: of termina-
tion that ivas taken away when the Jan. 17
agenda items were removed but the manag-
er's separation offer. With termination, the
commission drives the discussion and the
ter-ms; in a proposed separation offer, it's the
manager in the driver's seat. The commission
could have rejected the offer and opted for ter-
mination on the 17th, but at least in my inind
this was a cleaner, faster, less divisive way to
go. Remember, the goal is culture change at
City Hall and there will be, shortly, a new city
manager- to facilitate that change.
*Lost inl the discussion regarding the man-
ager-'s separation proposal was the city attor-
ney's contract. That was also placed on the
17th agenda by the same two commissioners,
and was wr-ongly removed by someone and .
placed on that of the special meeting. Unlike
the manager, there was no proposal to consid-
er and the issue was rescheduled for thC 17th.
This was wr-ong, I thought. No employee


should have to wait four: days to find out
whether or not they continue to have a job.
The issue of interim city manager was
barely addressed and no decisions were made,
other than to meet today, maybe.
Three names have emerged as possible
interim city managers: Joe Gerrity, Dave lott
and Beano Roberts. In the interest of full dis-
closure and with great pride and certainty 1
will tell you that I am a supporter ofJoe
Gerrity to be our next city manager more on
that in my next column so him being the
interim, with the ability to apply for the manag-
er's job, would be win-win for the city.
Failing the Gerrity appointment, Dave Intt
would also be a great choice. Dave is very
familiar with city issues and has provided the
commission with outstanding information on a
number of city issues: His management skills
are outstanding, he works well with others and
his judgment, in my opinion, is impeccable.
Dave would be a great interim city manager.
Change is tough; change is hard, and often
that implementation period can be cold and
messy, kind of like going through a rainstorm
on 1-95 it's coming down in sheets, you can't
see and you don't know how long it's going to
last. The thing is, though, you know that at
some point the rain is going to stop, the sky
will clear and the sun will come shining
through.
Right now, we're in the middle of the rain-
storm. ButI believe that the word~ change has
two synonyms hope and opportunity. I have
high hopes that culture change at City Hall
will happen, and that it will be positive. And I
know that many opportunities to positively
impact our city will present themselves,-and I
hope that we will take advantage of those
opportunities.
The skies will clear and the sun will come
out. I'm looking forward to that.

Some of my takeaways from the meet~ing-
*Commissioners Charles Corbett and
Sarah P~elican had put the questions of the ciiy
manager's and city attorney's contract on the
Jan. 17 agenda. Someone had removed thlem
from that agenda and placed them on that of
the special meeting without consulting with
and receiving permission from the two com-
-missioners. According to history and tradition,
that was wrong.
*The commission needs to appoint a par-
liamentarian, quickly someone familiar with
Roberts Rules of Order. Commissioner
Corbett ivas left twisting in the wind when he
wanted to amend the motion to accept the
manager's separation proposal, but wasn't
quite sure how to do it A parliamentarian
would have explained that a motion to amend
*would be in order. Once seconded, the com-
mission would then have voted on the amend-
ment and, if passed, it would have become pa-t
of the main motion. Instead, it was an awkward
.moment, maybe by design, who knows?
S*I thought the manager-'s separation pro-
posal was a good one. Unless proven other-
wise, it simply set into motion parts of his con-
tract that had been negotiated by him and past
commissions, and if you accept the premise
that we can't get a decent city manager with-

Before City Manager Michael
Czymbor, a revolving door was on
that office. Some managers left
under a suspicion of corrupt-ion,
some were not up to the job and
good city managers left because of
the constant vilification in the media
and fiom citizens. We finally have a
city manager who for almost six
years has worked with several city
commissions. That alone speaks of
his value to the city.
Three city commissioners want.
to fire a hard-working and honest
city manager, what ar~e they telling
everyone? That they are not good
people managers? They do not
know how to train and manage their
employee? That they have aper-
sonal agenda a good city manager
would see through? That they want
Sthe good 01e .boy days of private
handouts to friends and family?
What is it they are trying to tell the
citizens of Fernandina Beach?
Two city managers have' been
neighbors of mine. I do not agree
with some of the proposals put for-
ward by Mr. Czymbor, beach park-
ing fees for one. I do applaud him
for doing the job the city' commis-
sioners asked him to do. M-.
Czymbor- is doing his job pr-oper-ly
and doing it well.
City Manager Czymbor does not
want to leave. He is r-esigning under
protest because Mrs. Pelican, Mr.
Cor-bett and Mr-. Bunch told him
they do not support him. Resigning
looks better when job hunting. It
also shows class and allows the city
to have an orderly tr-ansition without
harm to its citizens.
After last Friday's city commis-
sion meeting, it seems obvious that
some very emotional and personal
agendas were at play by our- com-
missioner-s. The new commission-
ers had a chance to open up the
meeting to the standing-room-only
audience. They declined. But was-
n't that their campaign platforml, to
hear and obey the will of the people?
It seems peculiar- that the new
commissioners are so determined
to get rid of a good city em~ployiee
when they do not even know~ yet
how to do their jobs properly. At
Fr-iday's meeting, it was appar-ent
they did not even know how to fol-
low proper- pr-ocedurels. NLo ha-m
in that, new jobs always have a
learning cur-ve. Mr. Czymbor has
made mistakes, who doesn't?


RICK MCKEE/TEAUGUSTA (GA.) CHRONICLE


might get him,first.
And to the writer who said
Ronnie' Sapp's views are worthless
because' he voted for President
Obama is absolute nonsense. You
Claim Obama is probably the worst
president in the hiistory of our coun-
tily because he wants to give health
care to people who need help, his
Sstimululs would liave worked a lot:
better if not for the greed in our big
banks and Wall Street. I bet General
Motors would disagree with your
Republican partisan opinion. I'd bet
my last dollar you voted for Bush
and Cheney in 2000 and 2004 and if
you did, you voted for the worst
president and vice president this
country has ever had. Shame,
shande.
The Republicans' in Congress
should be kicked out of office for
their refusal to work with Obama
during the worst economic times
in our lives. They hate Obama and
us Democrats more than they love
this country. Shame, shame.
Getting back to George Bush, if
he weren't such a cowardly human
being and if he had an otince of
decency, he would at the very least
admit that his war didn't go very
well and he would donate the $400
million for his library into afund to
help pay for the medical bills for
the next60 years. The idea of build-
.ing this bum library is almost com-
ical. But it's mostly sad. If George
Bush and Dick Cheney came clean
about this war, they might stand a
chance. If not, they burn in hell.
Back to the writer who said
Ronnie Sapp's~national view ruins
his views on local issues has
got to be the most ignorant, dumb-
est opinion I've ever read in this
paper. I sold the Newrs-Leader when
I was 10 years old, so that's a long
time. I can only guess that the writer
spent too much time in freezing
weather and his vital organs are
froze up.
And to all you Obama haters -
and I know a lot of you are because
84 percent of Nassau County resi-
dents voted for Sarah Palin in 2008
-be sure to save some of your hate
because President Obama is going
to wipe the floor with whoever they
serve up from the worst cast of char-
acterslI've ever seen. Inoks like its
going to be Mitt Romney.

accountable by five different boss-
es who are likely to have consider-
ably~ different expectations and
demands. The same will be true for
a city attorney, should a search for
a replacement be undertaken as
well. While we're at it, should we
talk about how much the search
process itself wili cost? ,
I, for one,.would i-eally like to
know what our new commission-
ers haven mind. How much moi~e
will it cost the city in the long run
when the infrastructure continues
to deteriorate, when businesses
vacate downtown, when tourists no
longer find an attractive place~ to
visit? Thailks to 80 percent of the
registered rotersvirho didn't bother
to show up on Election' Day, we
seem to have a.real mess on our
hands, with no indication of how it
will play out. Andguess who gets to
foot the bill for this erratic and reck-
less behavior? All of us taxpayers -
including those viho objected to
"unnecessary spending."-How can
expenditures for civic improvement
belless important than the unnec-
essary spending we've just wit-
nessed?
Mark Kaufman

'Slame silatte*
The most important decision a
president can ever make is on the
subject of war. George Bush and
Dick Cheney told lie after lie after lie
to the American people and they
got what they wanted. And what are
the results after nine years in Iraq?
Over 4,500 of our men and women
dead, over 30,000 severely injured,
over $2 trillion wasted on this sorry
war. It's the worst thing our country
has ever done in my 60-plus years.
We'll be paying for this war 60 years
from now.
And let's not forget the deaths of
hu ndreds of thousands of innocent
Iraqis and millions that left Iraq and
are refugees in Syria and other nice
places in the region. The country
was destroyed by this war and our
country has gone downhill since
we illegally invaded Iraq. George
Bush got his revenge and killed
Saddam Hussein because he tried to
kill Bush Sr. in 1992 and Dick
Cheney, I'm sure, is still trying to
get his bloody hands on that black
oil in Iraq. He better hurry; Karma

.Our-twa recently elected city
commissioners, apparently appalled
by the idea of Forward Fer-nandina,
campaigned on a platform of elimi-
nating what they believed to be
wasteful spending. Yet after hold-
ing office for less than a month, nei-
ther had a problem spending well
over $100,000 for- severance and
benefits-by demanding the imme-
diate resignation of Michael
.Czymbor-, our- city manager. And
fr-om all appearances, they seem
ready to terminate the city attorney
as well, to the tune of another hun-
dr-ed gr-and-
To adamantly state that they
could not wvork with Czymbor -
when ther-e was bar-ely sufficient
time to get to know him strongly
suggestsma high degree of intoler-
ance and/or lack otf managerial
experience. It's one thing to have an
issue with For war-d Fernandina, but
another altogether to blame the city
manager- for following the directives
of a pr-eviously united commission.
Their actions and behavior at the
special session of the city com mis-
sion last Fr-iday especially with
Czymbor-'s family pr-esent were
thoughtless, hear~ltess and even ven-
omnous.
Amongst public administr-ation
pr-ofessionals (with the possible
exception of for mer- city commis-
sioner--tur-ned-ity manager Joe
Gertrity), the city of Fernandina
Beach has developed a r-eputation as'
a place to be avoided by competent
city manager-s.
Given the current polarized cli-,
mtate of the city commission, can
you imagine how much of a salary
a new city managerI will demand?
After all, he or- she will be held

JASON ALLI.P 1

Getting paid tut goI -hopping
may sound like a dream job,
but buyer beware: For each
leg~itimjrte mystery or secret
shopper opportunity, probably
hundreds Ijnore are: scamns. In
fct, he Natio~nal Consume l
ing fraudulent mystery shop
per and work-at-home schemes
were up nearly 9 percent during
the past six months.
Why the increase?! It's due in
part to our nation's high unem-
ployment rates and how des-
perate people are to earn
money while seeking full-time
employment. Plus, many peo-
ple are lured by offers that
sound too good to be true (and
are).
* Here are tips for spotting
bogus mystery shopper pro-
grams:
Many retailers hire market-
ing research companies to
gauge their employees' quality
of customer service. Those
companies-in turn hire mystery
shoppers to make purchases
anonymously and fill out ques
tionnaires documenting their
experience. Many research
firms belong to the Mystery
Shopping Provid'ers Association
(www, mystery ysho p.o rg) a
trade organization that links
businesses with mystery shop-
ping providers. (MSPA also pro-
vides a search engine where
people can register for mystery
shopping assignments.)
Unfortunately, scammers
increasingly are using newspa-
per and Internet job ads, emails
~and phone calls to snare unsus-
pecting consumers with prom

ises of quick, easy money for
minimal effort. Here's how a
typical mystery shopping scam
You answer an ad and are
'hirel" as a mystery shopper to
evaluate its clients' businesses.
The corn~pany sends an official-
looking employment packet
containing the business evalu-
ation forms you'll supposedly
use. But first, youll be required .
to complete a so-called training
assignment to make sure you're
a suitable employee. That's
where the fraud comes in:
The company claims it's
evaluating a money transfer
service like Western Union.
They send you alarge'check
with instructions to depositit in
your personal ~checking
account
You are told to keep a cer-
tain amount as your fee and
then to pose as a customer by
wiring the balance to a third
party- tisually within 48 hours.
You~then submit a report
about your customer experi-
ence. .
What you may not realize is
that theoriginal check was fake.
Scarrmers know that by law,
banks generally must make '
deposited funds under $5,000
available within a few days.
They ~count on your complet-

Common red flags include:
Legitimate companies will
never ask you to send a money
transfer for any purpose.
legitimate companies don't
charge shoppers a fee to work
for them.
Be suspicious ifyou're hired
on the basis of an email or
phone call without any inter-
view or background checks.
Companies that promise you
can make a lot of money as a
mystery shopper are almost
certainly scams.
*If mystery shoppers are
asked to make purchases, it's
usually for very small amounts
for which they will be reim-
bursed.
Mystery shoppers are paid
after completing their assign-
ments and returning the ques-
tionnaires. Shoppers never
receive checks upfront.
Good resources to learn
more about bogus mystery
shopper and other fake check
scams, include the FBI
(www. fb i.gov/scams-safety) ,
the Federal Trade Commission
(www.ftc.gov), the Consumer
Federation of America (www.
consumerfed.org), and the
National Consumers League

Coker, Bucky Mims, Doug Gies and
Capt. Kyle Coker, Dave Back, Jack
Florida's "Big Ledge" over the week-
end aboard Kyle Coker's sport fishing boat
"~iquid Diet."
With information that t~he blackfin tuna and
wahooc bite was hot and heavy, they anticipat-
etd excerllrnt blue water angling. Haan was also
rready to, cap~ture the action with his camera,
he:'s a p~rofeJssional photographer for the very
popular Salt ~ife: clothing and
sticker company.
TIhe local fishing party
!U' actually fished two days at
j,,l the "Big Ledge," both
Saturday and Sunday.
The "Big Ledge," also fre-
luentlyv referred to as the
"Continental She~lf," harbors a
Steecp dropl that falls from 180
OUTDOORS 'to more than 1,000 feet of
.......wate~r in less than a mile
heading easterly.
7877/y Laccoss "Saturday we had eight
blackfin tuna, but also hooked up three fast
running wahoo that eventually pulled our salt-
water hooks," Kyle Coker said. "Sunday we
caught 13 blackfin, all on topwater poppers
andi butterfly jigs rigged to saltwater rods and
reels.
"The tuna were schooled up on the surface
and busting lar-ge pods of small flying fish. We
u1sed a 'run-and-gun' approach, running up to
the pods of fish and casting to them. Each
time we would enjoy multiple hook-tips and
probably lost, at least five of the six tuna we
wouldl hook because the action was so fast and
furious it was hard to keep so many lines from
tangling and the surface strikes were so
VICIOUS.
"We caught all the tuna on Sunday in less'
than two hours of fishing. It was very exciting
catching then on spinning tackle rigged to
surface poppers and jigs, which made for a
heck of a fight. It was also thrilling to see so
many tuna schooled up on the surface at one
timec andi simply busting out of the water on
our topwater plugs.
"Both days were flat calm and beautiful,
very active water with flying fish .everywhere.
We saw 3-4 sailfish free jumping and the last
day we stopped at the' R4 tower and caught
several large amberjack. That really capital-
ized our fantasy Amelia Island blueuiater fish-
ing weekend."
Team "Liquid Diet" employed 30- to 50-
pound spinning tackle with 30-pound,bt~aided
fishing line spooled~ ori the spinning reels. A
six-foot length of 30-pound fluorocarbon shock
leader is attached to the braided fishing line
using back-to-back "Uni-Knots." Surface pop-
pers and two-ounce butterfly jigs are attached
to the business end of the shock leader by
employing "Loop Knots."
Capt. Ben Forehand recently fished aboard
John Hopkins' sport fishing boat the, "Ella
Cate." The local fishing party also visited:
Amelia Island's "Big Ledge" and enjoyed a
banner day of tuna fishing.
"We found a nice school of blackfiit tuna
feeding on small flying fish right onr I he s1.l .
facee" For~ehand said. "Young Joe Kd'anraad
landedd the largest tuna that weighed 25. ~
pounds. The tr~olling action lasted for an hour
andi we landed a total of five blackfin tuna."
A deadly trolling technique for- whiter
wahoo andi tuna includes a wire fishing line
attach ed to a five-pound tr-olling weight. A 20-
to, 30-foot section of 200- to 300-pound mono
shocked leader is thari attached between the lure
andi the weight. The wire line jnd trolling
weight allow lur-es to be trolled deep, whe~e
most str1ikes come during the winter strolling
seaso~n. Cedar plugs in the natural color pat-
tern ar-e t-he lures of choice,

Pebble Beach7 in the 2010 U.S. Open and tied
for fourth, but he hasn't played the annual

for 12th. When Woods last played the Pebble
Beach tournament, the field was 180 players,
leading Woods to complain that greens had
become bumpy and the long rounds were
wearing. The field is now 156. Dallas Cowboys
quarterback Tony Riomo will be his playing
partner. The pairing was widely speculated, but
some wondered if Woods would play with
Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.

Civil Wlar medicine
The Fernandina Beach Rotary
Club recently welcomed
retired Florida State College
Professor Peter Mullen, at left
with club President Shannon
Brown, who gave a presenta-
tion on Civil War medicine.
Mullen said more than
650,000 soldiers and civil-
fans died during the conflict
and that some 67 percent of
the deaths were disease relat-
ed rather than battle casual-
ties. The high death rate, par-
ticularly for soldiers, was
attributed to lack of immunity
to communicable diseases,
poor diet and unsanitary con-
ditions. No one knew about
germs and antiseptic proce-
dures were not common,
there were no antibiotics and
many medicines were toxic, if
not poisonous. Mullen said
more than 30,000 amputa-
tions resulted in survivors
who returned home unable to
live productive lives.

He opened the floor to

slow-ing down city spend-

fund projects without
excessive borrowing. He
pointed to the pros and
cons of projects such as

should first identify ways
to finance these projects
without burdening taxpay-

'Adventure book
Signing
Co-authors, Ed and Janet
Howle's debut novel, The
Long Roaa' to Paris, has been
named Best of 2011by
Kirkus Reviews. The book is
half fast-paced suspense arid
half convoluted love story
set in the first around-the-
world car race in 100 years.
The twists and turns of the
plot involve a dangerous liai-
son between the car's driver
and his secretive, mysterious
navigator --
and an inven- 4
tor who
hides the-
nature of the A
car's radical 4
technology. M
The technol- .
ogy is so rev-
olutionary that oil-exporting
countries, including Russia,
want every trace of it
dlestr-oyed and China, lacking
adequate energy resources,
wants to stealit. One month
into the race, the team finds
themselves on the Trans-
Siberian highway, only miles
from China's border,
embroiled in a world of inter-
national espionage, murder
and betrayal.
The Howles recently
completed their own "long
road to Paris" as a team in
World Race 2011, which
began April 14 in New York
City. The teams drove west
crossing the U.S., Asia and
Europe and covered 14,000
miles. The Howles drove
their 1967 VW Beetle, which
is outwardly identical to the
car featur-ed in their novel.
They will be driving their
rally car when they come to
Fernandina Beach for a sign-
ing of their novel at The
Book Loft, 214 Centre St., on
Jan. 21 from 2-6 p.m. The
public is invited to stop by
and meet these authors and
adventurers.

She truly craves attention and .

seems to g~et along fine with

Meet CJ, which is short for,
"Chop Job," which is what someone
did to CJ's ears. When RAIN
received a plea of help for CJ, fr-om a
Good Samaritan, we found his ears
had been recently blunt cut, were
badly bleeding, infected and very
painful to the touch. After several
trips to the vet, CJ's ears healed
ver-y nicely and it seems he has for-
gotten his abusive past
CJ is a very happy pet and does
ver-y well with other dogs and pups.
He LOVES to swirri and enjoys
launching himself off the dock into
the water to retrieve a tennis ball.


He is a small-framed dog and
weighs about 45-50 pounds. He is
about 18 months old and is house
and crate trained. CJ would need a
yard for his exercise and enjoyment
and another pet for companionship.
To adopt CJ, please call RAIN
