Members of the city's Waterfront
Advisory Group and Arts & Culture
Nassau met Friday for a joint meet-
ing to discuss the possibility of con-
structing a performance pavilion as
an element of the city's updated water-
front park plan.
Mike Spino, chair of Arts & Culture
Nassau, said the discussion was
intended to "lay the groundwork" for
a possible pavilion, and that con-
struction would most likely be part of
a future phase of the Forward
Fernandina waterfront park plan.
Although there was no definite plan
for the design of the pavilion, members
viewed renderings of such structures
in a document presented by local
architect Randy Rice. Those render-


nance pavilion'
ings included performance pavilions at variety of events, including weddin

Short-term rentals for



city condo complex OK?


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


The city's Planning Advisory Board
has narrowly agreed that property
owners in a residential-zoned condo
complex may soon be able to legally
rent out their units on a short-term
basis. The city commission must
approve before the decision becomes
law.
The city's planning board voted 4-
3 at a Feb. 8 meeting to approve an
amended Planned Unit Development
overlay that would allow resort rental
dwellings in the Forest Ridge Village
condominium complex, located off
First Avenue.
The complex has been allowing
property owners to rent out their units
on a short-term basis for many years,
even though it is not zoned for such
rentals, nor did the condo associa-
tion's covenants allow for such use.
Built in the 1980s, Forest Ridge
Village was for unknown reasons
never "grandfathered" to allow resort
rentals when the city began restricting
them in 2000 to the high-density R-3
zone only. Forest Ridge has always


been zoned R-2, or medium density, rentals in areas that are now restrict-

David Buchanan, director of transportation
for Nassau District Schools, wants those par-
ents to know their trust is well placed.
"It is evident that Sheryl loves her job. She has a
great rapport with students, parents and school person-

to help accomplish the goals of the department, always
considering the well being of our students. She is
extremely safety conscious."
Buchanan hastens to add that Vasquez, who has driv-

people who care for students each day.
"They perform their duties in an exemplary manner,
often under very trying circumstances. Even though we

The Fernandina Pirates
Club, Inc. has been challenged
by a band of Pirates from
Sanford and they are out for
blood, literally.
SWhile the Fernandina
Pirates finished second to the
Jacksonville Jaguars in the dis-
trict last year for the number
of useable pints donated to the
Georgia/Florida Blood Alliance,
the BE Orlando Pint Club has
begun its mission to compete
with them for blood donations
in 2012.
On Feb. 18 the Fernandina
Pirates will have four buses
from the Blood Alliance in the
Publix parking lot on Sadler
Road. Wicked Wanda, blood
drive chairperson, has also
arranged to have another bus
stationed in St. Marys, Ga., for
the Chili Cook-Off, in which the
Pirates took respectable hon-
ors in 2011. The event is from
11 a.m.-2 p.m. in downtown St.
Marys and.is part of the 18th
annual Mardi Gras Festival and
Parade that includes a street
festival from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
(Contact 912-882-4000 or
info@stmaryswelcome.com for
information.)
The Fernandina Pirates
Club supports many different
community charities including
its own Pirate Scholarship pro-

"Bring it on Orlando," said
Fernandina Pirate Wanda Hair.
"We are ready for the challenge!
The Fernandina Pirates are
indeed out for blood in 2012!"
Blood is imperative for all types
of operations, accident victims,
acute burn victims, many can-
cer patients and for those with
catastrophic diseases such as
hemophilia. Blood cannot be
manufactured and is only avail-
able when needed if someone
donates it. One hour or less of
your time can save up to three
lives.
Having received a resolu-
tion from the Nassau County
Commission and a proclama-
tion from the Fernandina Beach
Commission recognizing the
club for its ongoing communi-
ty service and charitable work,
members of the Pirate Club are
the community's "Goodwill

designated by both local gov-
ernment entities.

City sign ordinance changes
ANGELA DAUGIHTRY
Aeis -Leader Sgn eeng


Business owners within the
city's historic district and
Community Redevelopment
Area will have the opportunity
to discuss changes to the city's
sign ordinance during a March
7 meeting at City Hall.
The city's Community
Development Department is
proposing the changes as part
of a Land Development Code
update. Those changes to the
sign ordinance, if approved,
would allow businesses in his-
toric districts and CRAs to have
up to four types of signs each.
Currently, businesses within
the historic district are only
allowed one wall or bracket sign
of up to 12 square feet. A second
sign is allowed only if the busi-
ness has a secondary entrance.



PAVILION
Continued from LA
manent roof covering.
Rice said the design would
also have to consider the "rum-
ble" of the Rayonier mill that
is within sight of the city water-
front. He suggested an acoustic
wall could be built that could be
moved up and down, which
could also protect attendees
from heavy waterfront breezes.
Spino also noted the idea
behind the performance pavil-
ion was to have free, rather
than ticketed events, and that
costs for local groups to use
the pavilion should be kept

Committee will hold its

A meeting on the sign ordnance's proposed changes is
scheduled forMarch 7 from 6-8 p.m. in city commission
chambers at City Hal, 204 Ash St "


Sandwich boards and direc-
tional signs are currently
allowed only for businesses on
side streets and window letter-
ing is allowed only on 25 per-
cent of window glass.
The proposed changes
would allow two signs per busi-
ness, which could be a combi-
nation of wall, projecting,
awning or freestanding.
Window lettering and sandwich
board/easel/pedestal signs
would also be allowed for all
businesses, not just those on
side streets.
Freestanding signs would be


affordable.
The Waterfront Advisory
Group was formed to help
implement the first phase of the
Forward Fernandina Strategic
Plan by making necessary
changes to the waterfront park

but Buchanan says Vasquez is
"outstanding in exercising fair

agement on her bus."
"I love driving the kids,"
says Vasquez, whose child-

Another proposed change is
that wall signs would be based
on the linear feet of the busi-
ness frontage and could be up to
25 square feet
Contemporary materials
could be used to replicate nat-
ural materials, provided they
are not plastic or vinyl. However,
letters on signs could be plastic

The proposed amendments
would allow a total of four types
of signs per business: two wall,
projecting, awniing or free-

she gets a charge out of it.

The proposed signage
amendments are art of a Land
Development Code update that
is focusing on putting all as-ects

section, according to city Senior
Planner Kelly Gibson.
According to an e-mail from
city Planner II Adrienne Dessy,
several aspects of the sign ordi-
nance have yet to be discussed
by city staff, such as required
yard setbacks and multi-tenant
signs. City staff hopes to get
input from downtown mer-

were not notified that short-
term rentals might soon
become legal nearby.
"The (condominium)
covenants did not say anything
about short-term rentals.-
Picard said. The PUD should
not be in an R-2 zone." Picard
also noted short-term renters
could cause more traffic prob-
lems.
"Parking clearly is one of
the crucial issues," said prop-
erty owner Bruce Jervis.
"Forest Ridge Village is %5
parking spaces shy of what is
required by city code." He
noted there was also a serious
issue of "access and egress.,
"Forest Ridge Village has a
single narrow checkpoint," he
said, which is a problem for
emergency vehicles. The com-
plex. he said, is accessible only
from a narrow two-lane road'
that was meant for residential
use.
Geraldeen Chester said
she bought a unit in Forest
Ridge last year and intended to
live there part-time and rent it
out part-time.
"We did everything to
assure ourselves that short-
term rentals were permitted,"
she said. Chester added that
she had gone to a vacation-
rental website and found 12
units in Forest Ridge available
for rent weekly.
"It appears there isn't going
to be an easy solution to this,"
planning board member
Judith Lane said. 'This (issue)
has a strangeness to it. It's just
going to remain a contentious

issue. I'm concerned that this
will set a precedent."
But City Attorney Tammi
Bach assured Lane that
amending this particular PUD
was not setting a precedent
for other places to allow resort
rentals.
"The city looked for PUDs
and there are no others," Bach
said. "This is the last one." She
added that the creation of any
new PUDs would have to go
before the city commission.
Member Michael Harrison
said he sympathized with res-
ident owners who were living
in the changing neighbor-
hood.
"I'm trying to assess what
would be changed if the city
commission eventually says
yes to this or no to this." he
said. "Would property values
go up or would they fall?"
"I have had a hard time
dealing with why things
weren't done." member Paul
Condit said. "I'm comfortable
with the fact that it just fell
through the cracks."
In the end, planning board
members Len Kreger, Judith
Lane and Michael Harrison
voted against amending the
PUD to allow resort rentals,
and members Paul Condit,
Richard Bradford, Eric Bartelt
and Mark Bennett voted in
favor.

Oprah plays Cupid



in Lovetown USA


When Oprah Winfrey's TV
network went fishing for a
pond to hold a new reality
series, it got hooked on the
tiny town of Kingsland, Ga.
And the South Georgia
town known for its annual
Catfish Festival eventually
landed the "Lovetown, USA"
show, to be televised on
Winfrey's OWN network. But
it was not a lucky bite.
The townspeople of
Kingsland put on their best
performances when Winfrey's
crews came calling in recent
months. They dressed in red,
decorated the town with rib-
bons and hosted a block party
to differentiate themselves
from other towns vying for
the spot.
Crews for the show will
now spend the next 30 days in
Kingsland, helping eight sin-
gle residents find love. They
will do it through matchmak-
ing techniques and then
follow the fledgling lovebirds
through their courtships.
o Oprah, who was in neigh-
boring St. Marys, Ga. this
weekend for a rally, will revisit


Kingsland
days of dat-
ing to see
what has
transpired.
SThe rally,
held at the
St. Marys'
waterfront
STEVE S park,
MARI T marked the
PLoAE official kick-.
off of the
show.
Steve Nicklas Kings-
land's 12,305
residents are obviously excit-
ed. The windfall from the pro-
duction will inevitably benefit
the town and its businesses,
while providing entertain-
ment for the residents.
The concept of finding love
for residents is being deemed
"the biggest dating challenge
in TV history." Kingsland out-
shined other towns such as
Carrboro, N.C. (nicknamed
"the Paris of the Piedmont")
and Natchez, Miss., where
Disney filmed "The
Adventures of Huck Finn."

The desired location
appeared to be small towns
with fewer than 15,000 resi-
dents. Not only is Winfrey try-
ing to help townsfolk in
Kingsland find love, she also
wants to investigate the
effects of widespread love "on
the DNA of one American
community."
The participants in the
show can range from 20 to 60
years old. They must fill out a
20-page questionnaire that
asks everything from religion
to clothes size to favorite
food.
The original series will
premiere this summer, with
eight episodes. The match-
making efforts will certainly
be in experienced hands. Paul
Carrickwho is the real-life
"Hitch" from the popular
movie, will work with Kailen
Rosenberg, who is known as
the true "love whisperer" and
has assisted in 200 successful
marriages.
As with everything she
does,.Winfrey intends for this
reality show to be different
from the rest. That's just part
of her own DNA. "That's why
I came down," Winfrey said,
"to say that it's not just anoth-
er reality show."

Scammers feast on timeshare owners


Looking back over 2010's
top 10 scams, we noticed that
four of them had not yet been
reported to readers by Seniors
vs. Crime. In the coming
months we will correct this
oversight starting with this one
on timeshares.
A timeshare is a form of
ownership or right to the use of
property, or the term used to
describe such properties-
Normally the properties are
condominiums in which multi-
ple parties own the rights to
occupy the property and each
party is usually allotted a certain
period of time to use the prop-
erty. In this housing market
there are many owners of time-
shares that need to or would
like to sell them. There are over
4 million households that own
one or more weekly stays at a
U.S. timeshare. Although fewer
than 6 percent of U.S. house-
holds own a timeshare, there
are over 1,600 timeshare resorts
in this country and the preva-
lence of vacation ownership con-
tinues to expand.
The scammers know this
and have started to exploit this
growing market, particularly in
Florida. According to law
enforcement officials, an
increasing number of timeshare
owners are being scammed out
of millions of dollars.
The Florida Attorney
General's Office ranks time-
share fraud at the top of the list
of all consumer complaints
received in 2010 with 12,000,
outnumbering the second most
frequent complaint by more
than three to one. Last year the
Attorney General's Office con-
ducted over 45 active investi-
gations into timeshare resale
fraud. This scam involves tele-
marketers calling people
throughout the country offer-
ing to rent or sell their time-
shares in exchange for a fee.
One such case is presently
being worked by the
Fernandina Beach office of







DON'T HITTER

Spay orNeuter -

Ka..,


Seniors vs. Crime. Last May a
local couple received a call from
a vacation property manage-
rent company in Florida. The
company told them they would
sell their timeshare in Hawaii
but needed to be paid a $1,500
fee first. While considering the
offer, another call came from
what appeared to be the com-
pany that managed the couple's
Hawaiian timeshare. The caller
said the company making the
offer to sell the property was
indeed legitimate. So the couple
believed them and used their
credit card to pay the $1,500
upfront fee. That was the last
they saw of their money and
the timeshare has still not been
sold.
The only good news here is
that the couple did not fall for
subsequent calls from other
scam artists as part of the same


scheme. The first was a phony
consultant who claimed the
vacation management compa-
ny was a fraud but he would get
their money back if they gave
him $650 for attorney's fees.
The second was a supposed title
company executive who
explained to the couple that he
too would get their money back
and sell the property. Of course
the deal was they had to first
send him $500.
If you receive an unsolicit-
ed call from a broker claiming
to have a client interested in
buying your timeshare, be sus-
picious. The next thing you may
be told is that a refundable secu-
rity deposit must .be paid
upfront to ensure the sale goes
through. To pay the deposit you
need to wire the money to an
out-ofstate bank account or give
the broker your credit card


number to make the payment.
In many cases by the time you
realize that you have been
scammed, the con artist's
phone number is out of serv-
ice, his bank account closed and
he is nowhere to be found. If
you do manage to get an answer
when you call the company that
gave you the pitch, they are
uncommunicative and evasive.
When CBS News did an
investigative report on time-
share fraud, they were met with
disconnected phone numbers,
full voicemail boxes, websites
that no longer work and unre-
turned emails. FloridaAttorney
General Pam Bondi cites the
country's financial situation as
the reason for the high num-
ber of complaints. "Look at our
economy now, a timeshare is a
luxury and so many people now
can't afford them, so when they


get contacted by these scam-
mers. they are vulnerable.-
In order to protect yourself
from fraudulent practices in
timeshare sales and resales.
consider the following before
you decide to purchase or sell a
timeshare.
1. Be wary of a hard sales
pitch don't believe the papers
need to be signed immediately.
Read your contract very care-
fulhl to understand what can-
cellation rights you have after
signing.
2. Don't believe a story that
resale of timeshares are a "hot"
market. Remember that once
you buy, you may not be able to
sell due to the current
depressed resale market.
3. Question why you are
required to pay the fee upfront.
In a typical real estate transac-
tion, the fee is paid from the
proceeds of the sale at the time
of the sale.
4. You do have other options
when it comes to reselling your
timeshare. You could list your
property with a licensed real
estate broker in Nassau County
if that is where your resort is
located. Or you could place an
ad to sell your timeshare "by.
owner" in a newsletter or mag-


azine targeting timeshare buy-
ers.
You do have ether resout es
to go to if you think you may be
a victim of timeshare fraud.

Commission, Better Business
Bureau, MyFloridaLegal.com

the best way to avoid timeshare
fraud.

Dear Taxpayers:

Did you know that you can pay your annual property tax bill in four
quarterly payments? By breaking the tax payment into installments,
property owners can make their tax bills easier to manage.

The procedure, as outlined in Florida Statute 197.222, requires that

V~ :DNESDA FEBSRLAR i5. 2012 OPINION News-Leader


Seekir
My time in Tallahassee last
week started with a meeting
Tuesday morning to discuss
the St Johns River Ferry.
There is significant interest in
the continued operation of the
ferry as evidenced by the
number of people attending
the meeting.
Former Jacksonville City
Councilwoman Elaine Brown
attended and spoke of the
need for additional time to
reach a solution. The
Jacksonville Port Authority's
board will meet on Feb. 27
and it was requested that a
decision be delayed by 90
days to allow time for the
grassroots effort to be suc-
cessful
Currently the ferry gener-
ates roughly $900,000 in rev-
enue and expends $1.6 million
in expenses, leaving roughly
$700,000 in annual operating
losses. This is in addition to
the capital improvements that
need to be done.
In a subsequent meeting I
learned the details of the $1.6
million in expenses, which
include $189,000 in manage-
ment fees. It would seem that
if a not-for-profit assumed the
operations of the ferry, these
management fees could be

ridership increased to 300,000
vehicles, an additional

Clearly an effective marketing
plan is needed.
The ferry provides an
important link for residents of
Fernandina Beach and
Nassau County who travel to
the Jacksonville Beaches com-
munities and to the Mayo
Clinic. The benefit of the ferry
is that it not only saves valu-
able time but also wear and
tear on vehicles, roads and
bridges. I am continuing to
work toward finding a solution
and will work with fellow law-
makers to find a solution..

doesn't need a spin doctor


Hallelujah, euphoria and spasms of unbri-
dled joy my concerns and fears about the
city commission's decision-making were
wrong, misguided and misplaced' I was the
problem, we were the problem: we just didn't
understand what they were doing, we didn't
get the message! Ah, but soon, very soon, that
deep hole of miscommunication is going to be
filled; that malady of misinformation is going
to be cured, the commission's getting a public
relations guy!
-Hey, it wasn't the message, the message
was positive, good and pure. No, it was a nega-
tive press that put bad things on the front
page, emphasizing errors in judgment and
focusing on missteps. They, in a sinister and
deliberate way, used their role as gatekeeper
to cover and spin the bad things and keep out
the good things. And it was the army of bitter
letter writers and others on the op-ed pages,
rejecting and ignoring all that was good in the
message and believing and spreading only the
ill. And it was negative candidates running
negative campaigns, all bent on taking our city
back to the Stone Age.
Listen, you can almost hear those lonely
few inside the fort, all gathered closely togeth-
er, saying, "It's not the message; the message
is positive, good and pure." Well, for those
inside the fort, only listening to others inside
the fort, it's never the message. Never.
Questions, though: 1) How would a public
relations guy a "spin doctor have "spun"
the complete lack of stimulus in the Forward
Fernandina stimulus plan? 2) How would he
have explained to a skeptical citizenry that the
Forward Fernandina plan had no plans? 3)
How could this person make a taxincrease in
the middle of the Great Recession seem like


Sthe right thing to do? 4) How
can anyone put a positive
spin on the decision to bor-
row $6 million for non-stimu-
Slus projects. without plans.
-and pay for those non-stimu-
lus projects without plans
with a utility tax increase?
Note to the commission
DEBlATE and all those others inside
the fort: it was the message.
AND It wasn't the media, it wasn't
TACKE the letter writers and it was-
n't the candidates, it was the
message.
Ron Sapp There's great news
though, you can fix the mes-
sage by doing a few simple things:
Complete the waterfront plan, the one
that was approved in 2007. That plan focused
on green open space, picnic areas and a
boardwalk. That plan also accommodates a big
gazebo, or performance area at the park's
extreme south end; build that and have a rib-
bon-cutting ceremony just before the Shrimp
Festival.
Sit down with the county commission and
come up with an agreement for the
Fernandina library that 1) keeps it downtown
and 2) delineates the primary sponsor, their
obligations and those of the subordinate.
Appoint someone as parliamentarian, get
rid of Bach's Rules of Order and get back to
Roberts Rules of Order. End the procedural
chaos.
Stop listening to lectures from charter
employees, they work for you. When they start
telling you what their job is and what they are
going to do and what their relationship with


you is going to be, just say. "Whoooooaa, read
the charter: we supervise you, we evaluate
you, we hire you and we terminate you. There
are no rogue charter officers in city govern-
mentY Just saying.
Develop a core set of beliefs and stick to
them, never deviate and never compromise
those beliefs; compromise on other things, but
never the core beliefs. And when those beliefs
separate you from most of your constituents,
explain the separation, being as honest and
forthright as you can. In my experience, when
a vote or position on an issue is explained the
people may not agree with you. and they may
be angry with you, but they'll understand.
Develop that core set of beliefs.
Discuss and debate issues openly. Think
back: how much debate and discussion was
there before Forward Fernandina was
approved? I'm not talking about how many
meetings were held, I'm talking about real
debate and discussion. How much debate and
discussion was there before the tax increase,
or the decision to borrow the $6 million or the
utility tax increase?
Do these things: complete the public-cen-
tered waterfront with a performance area, get
an agreement with the county regarding the
library, appoint a parliamentarian, stop cower-
ing and nail-biting when listening to lectures
from charter employees stop the lectures,
early, and take back the dais; it's been surren-
dered to staff, take it back and believe in some-
thing, stand for something and let people know
what those beliefs are.
In my opinion, if you do all of these things
you won't need a spin doctor, you'll be the city
commission again.
Ron Sapp is a former city commissioner


COMMUNITY THANKS

Woof woof
A gigantic thanks, a "woof woof" and
"meow" to Nancy at Pickers Market for
holding a fundraiser for Nassau Humane
Society on Saturday, Feb. 4. Pickers
Market, 201 Alachua St., held their inaugu-
ral "first weekend in each month flea mar-
ket" and everything left over from the sale
was donated to Nassau Humane Society's
Second Chance store for re-sale.
All proceeds from our store help give the
homeless dogs and cats at our shelter a
"second chance" at finding new, loving fami-
lies. We look forward to continued support
from the folks at Pickers Market, and we
thank everyone for your wonderful accept-
ance and support of our new store.

there is a public interest and staffs have vet-
ted these amendments to ensure no fiscal
impact, amendments will become a fact of
chamber life. Many bills that pass-the
House will get amended on the floor in the
Senate and then will have to return to the
House to be amended again or agreed upon
and ordered "enrolled as adopted." Make-
sure you start to watch what is called the
"special order calendar" in the coming
weeks for what might be of interest to you.
The First'Coast Manufacturing
'Association was in Tallahassee this week
advocating for pro-business issues. I enjoyed
talking with them and sharing with them our
latest work on the ferry. I am always inter-
ested in the views of others as they are
always uniquely driven by how their inter-
ests are affected. Sometimes issues like the
ferry have broad community appeal because
it is part of our heritage and holds a place in
our community.
There is never a dull moment in
Tallahassee. I appreciate all those that have
taken the time to attend the Education
Solutions Roundtable meetings and the St.
Johns Ferry meetings. It is important that I
hear from you and we always welcome you
to come and be recognized in the gallery
when the Florida House of Representatives
is in session.
Sometimes in all our rush we forget to
thank those who sacrifice so much and
serve behind the scene to help make so
much of what happens in our Capitol possi-
ble. I would like to thank my Chief
Legislative Aide Larry Williams and his fami-
ly for their dedication and sacrifice to the cit-
izens of Florida; happy birthday!

they is good. We are talking about solu-
to a tions and compromise on little
things like street lighting and big
ney; things like overall financing.
nple. Objections: We have a little town
luca- here and the further our elected
dol- officials remove themselves from
par- facing us, the unhappier the people
goes get. You can do the PR for us. Get
, in a out and give talks everywhere. Take
better turns in writing lengthy articles in
r pri- the newspaper, maybe once a
ards month, explaining issues or suc-
ition cesses, etc. Our little newspaper is
n, all unlikely to publish "la te dah" arti-
ue to cles by a PR person often because of
hat is space in the paper, but elected offi-
'ould cials have the special preference


there and should^use that. They do
hire reporters to cover the meet-
ings, and as much as political fig-
ures get annoyed at the reporters, I
think they do a good job of report-
ing what went on.
The mayor's practice of arrang-
ing monthly visit sessions is per-
fect, even if no one comes some-
times. Use your email lists after
getting permission to keep in con-
tact and pass information. Be honest
in your information and tell exactly
what is happening.
It's not just telling us good things,
because we expect them, but telling
the truth is what we want.
Read this recently which can
apply to elected officials too: "Good
business leaders create a vision,
articulate the vision, passionately
own the vision and relentlessly drive
it to completion." -Jack Welch.

Fridaythe13th
Are you trusting? When some-
one you don't know promises a
great job at a low-ball price, do you
believe him or her? If so, beware.
The person in my story is very much
at large and probably bilking anoth-
er Amelia Island resident about now.
Here's what happened so he can't
con you:
On Friday the 13th last month
our doorbell rang and it was this
seemingly pleasant man who offered
to powerspray our house for $200.
We-said no; the next offer was $150
and we said yes. He promised a per-
fect job.
About one hour later he advised
us that he had broken our back
faucet Water was pouring both out
and in, so we turned off the water
and he promised to have it "fixed"
soon.
Evidently the fix exceeded his
skills, he had our $150, so he forced
the pipe back on and somehow
blocked the flow and left. I then
tried to re-hookup our house. As
soon as I touched the faucet, it
popped out and the flood was on
again.
I hate to admit it, but I'm old and
my legs don't work too well. To
remove the cover to the water
turnoff, I had to lean over and lift. I
fell instead and couldn't get up'
Thank God for 911.
Next came the plumber and
Servicemaster to clean and dry our
rugs. Both were here until after 9
p.m.
The next Friday the 13th is this
April, followed by another in July.
I'm not going to answer my doorbell.

'The air search started right
at dusk and where it was too
dark to see anything without
the night vision goggles, but yet
still too bright to use them,"
Johnston said. "About an hour
after dark, I flipped them down
and, within a few minutes, saw
the glow of a cell phone. I cir-

see two hunters and one of the
dogs."

children dre-ssed up in dragon
masks and costumes to seek
donations for their upcoming
rice festivals. Everywhere I look
over here, I see dragons.
The dragon, it seems is a


very auspicious sign, a powerful
aura, the most fortunate sign
to be born under. So every
dozen years or so, when it's a
dragon year, like now, Chinese
women all around the region
are trying extra-hard to have
their own "dragon babies." In
Singapore, with a large Chinese
population, the birthrate this
year is expected to be more
than 15 percent higher than in
other years. I guess a dragon
baby isgood for the mother too!
It's not just symbolic drag-
ons I'm running into in my busi-
ness trips around the region.
Take dragonflies for instance.
In a brief trip over from my base
in Bangkok to Jakarta I spent
most of my time in the city,
above nature, in the clouds of
exhaust flumes filtered by the
air conditioners of my five-star
hotel. -
But as always I managed to
orchestrate a little field trip out-
side the city. The regional
forests and agroforestry cen-
ters for Southeast Asia are


t'i~5f F.l 0


based in Bogor, a city in the
paddy fields and forests above
Jakarta, just a mere hour away
(or maybe three hours depend-
ing on traffic). But anyway, well
worth the time to pay a visit and
interview the professionals
there about regional biodiver-
sity matters. And best yet,,
knew that these international
centers were based on a "cam-
pus" full of biodiverse trees and
bugs.
So off we went, my team and
I, for a bit of fresh air. In our

And there are other dragons
over here too in Indonesia,
Komodo dragons to be specific.
Sadly my trip allowed no time to
fly to the island of Komodo
where these giant monitor
lizards reign, but still they were
everywhere. A number of the
offices I visited had statues and
sculptures of these prehistoric-
looking creatures adorning
them. Komodo dragons are a
pride of Indonesia, a tourist
draw, and a symbol for all the
unusual wildlife that lives in this
tropical archipelago. In Florida,
wherever you might see
artwork with an alligator, here
it seems to be Komodo drag-

Dragons may be real, like
dragonflies and Komodo drag-

Henry the county's most valuable player


BETH JONES
News leader


Private schools may have
tried to woo him away from
Yulee, but they all failed.
"I'm not leaving Yulee,"
said Derrick "Shocka" Henry.
"This is where I was burn and
raised. I'm proud to be a
If ornet, always will be."
Henry, the -foot-3, 240(
pound junior sensation from
Yulee Iligh School, returns to
the top of the all-Nassau
County football team. He's
once again Nassau's most
valuable player.
Henry broke Ciatrick
Faison's North Florida rush-
ing record last fall, hitting the
ground for 2,610 yards. He
scored 33 rushing touch-
downs for the Hornets. For
his efforts, Henry was.named
to MaxPreps' first-team All-
American team for juniors. He
was first team all-state and all-
area and was a finalist for Mr.
Football in Florida.
He has another season
ahead of him at Yulee but
Henry is already looking


ahead. He has a verbal com-
mitment to the play football
on scholarship at the
University of Georgia.
If Henry sticks with his
commitment -although he
still has offers coming in and
his "options are still open" -
the Gator fan will be wearing
Bulldog red and black in
2013.
His emotions were mixed
last fall while watching the
Florida-Georgia game.
"That's hard," Henry said.
"I was glad Georgia won
because I'm going there."
Henry started playing foot-
ball when he was five years
old.
"I fell in love with it," he
said.
He excelled on the grid-
iron and, by middle school,
was already making a name
for himself. In fact, a rule was
enforced in Nassau County
before his eighth grade year
to limit the number of times
one player can score.
"After my seventh-grade
year, we tried real hard to
make sure my last year was


my best year," he said. "But I
could barely play the first
half. I still had fun. It was a
great year."
Ilenry let loose his fresh-
man year, earning all-county
recognition then.
"I went wild my freshman
year," he said.
Henry had another great
season as a sophomore at
Yulee.
"Every year I've stepped
up my game," Henry said.
The Hornets qualified for
the playoffs for the second
year in a row, going 8-3 in
2011.
"He had another great
year, especially considering
the competition we played,"
said Bobby Ramsay, head
football coach at Yulee. "He
played big in the big games
as well, especially West
Nassau and the playoffs.
"I know it means a lot to
Derrick to represent Yulee
and Nassau County in the
best way possible. He takes a
lot of pride in that.
"I expect him to finish his
high school career with


another outstanding season.
No one sees how hard he
works."
Henry plans to follow in
the shoes of former teammate
Kelvin Rainey, who graduated
early and is already enrolled
at the U!niversity of South
Carolina.
"I miss Kelvin a lot,"
Henry said. "He, (senior)
Zach (Camp) and I were the
three amigos.
"When (Rainey) starts
playing, I'm going to make
sure I talk to him to see what
it's like," Henry said.
Both teammates are also
on the all-county team. See
2B.
Henry gives full credit to
his teammates and coaches
for his success. And he excels
in the classroom, earning all
As this year with the excep-
tion of a B.
"Football isn't a guaran-
tee," said Henry, who admits
he is just fine with the nick-
name "Shocka."
"I love my nickname," he
said. "My grandmother gave
it to me."


BETH JONES/NtEWS-LEADER
Junior Derrick "Shocka" Henry rushed for 2,610 yards
and scored 33 times for the Yulee Hornets in 2011.

state tournament this week-
end in Lakeland.
Both the Fernandina

regional tournament Friday
and Saturday at Clay County.
Andrew Tipton, 106

his weight class to qualify for

Matt Sweetman of Yulee
also qualified, taking fourth.
"Our region is the tough-
est in the state," YIIS Coach
Brandon Crowder said. "Matt
Sweetman did break through
and qualified; he beat a
wrestler from Bolles who beat
him the first day. I always
knew he could do it and am
proud to have been his coach
the last three years.
"We had a good weekend.
All of our kids battled and
four were one match from the
qualifying round. It is always
hard seeing a senior wrestle
their last match.
"We have some young
guys coming back, so next
year maybe we will send mul-
tiple guys, but I am very
proud of the work put in this
year."

More than 1,000 people will gather at
Seven Bridges at Tinseltown in Jacksonville
March 31 to join the fight to find a cure for a
deadly illness. ALS, also known as Lou
Gehrig's Disease, progressively paralyzes its
victims, attacking nerve cells and pathways in
the brain or spinal cord.
ALS.patients, including those in wheelchairs
along with their families and friends, will make
a two-mile trek in The Walk to Defeat ALS,
hoping their steps will make a difference for
ALS patients living in the Jacksonville area.
Many who walk have a loved one who is
still fighting the deadly disease. Others walk in
memory of a loved one who has lost the battle.
Many people, without any personal connection,
still walk out of a simple concern for those who
are suffering with Lou Gehrig's disease.
With just two to five years on average to
live, these patients have an urgent need and
the community is stepping in to fill it by walking


for those who can't. The Walk to Defeat ALS is
the ALS Association's signature event, in which
all funds directly support cutting-edge
research, programs and patient care: Last
year, these events raised nearly $1.2 million
around the state of Florida.
All interested walkers should call 888-257-
1717 or register online at www.WalktoDefeat
ALS.org. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. with the
walk beginning at 10 a.m. Seven Bridges is
located at 9735 Gate Parkway.

One of the most difficult things for the amateur golfer to adjust to is the long putt
on the green. Long putting is a skill that is rarely practiced and, consequently,
whenever we have a very long putt to attempt, the end result is usually not what
Swe want. Most amatuers faced with a long putt automatically go into the thought
S process that they need to smack the ball to get it to the hole. This thinking
pattern will get you a three-putt more times than not. When you try to kill the putt,
all of the motion in your putting stroke comes from the wrist The ball usually pops up off the
ground and there is little to no chance for success. A long putting stroke needs to be
generated by the shoulders with nothing to do with your wrists.

Rodma

Anchored in a deep
hole located in
Rodman Reser-
voir's barge canal,
our fishing party, including
Norman Bray, Jim Maughon
and me, free-lined wild shin-
ers into deep stands of
hydrilla weeds. Occasional
three- to seven-pound large-
mouth bass would intercept
our live baits. However, we
had yet to encounter a real
trophy largemouth bass that
Rodman Reservoir is so
famous for.
The lake record weighed
17.2 pounds and measured
29.75 inches, just short of the
Florida state record large-
mouth bass that weighed
17.27 pounds. The University
of Florida shocked a 24-pound
largemouth bass during a fish
tagging and study taken in
Rodman Reservoir.
"Get the net, Terry. I have
hooked a giant of a bass,"
Maughon shouted. "My bass
is tangled in a huge mass of
hydrilla weeds and is, without
a doubt, the largest bass that
I have hooked into."
Securing the large-
mouthed Frabill landing net, I
rushed to the back of my
Triton bay boat where
Maughon was hooked up to a
bass of a lifetime.
At boat side, a Jurassic-
looking black bass appeared
from the tangle of hydrilla
weeds. Leaning far, out into
the lake with my long han-
dled bass net, I swooped
Maughon's bass into the net,
weeds and all.
Bray, Maughon and I
paused in silence for a few
seconds as we stared in awe
at the huge bass that was now
lying on the floor of our fish-
ing boat. I secured

Commission vbted Feb: 8 to
change how gag grouper is
managed in Gulf of Mexico
state waters (excluding
Monroe County).
The decision, which came
during day two of the three-
day February commission
meeting, will achieve consis-
tency with federal manage-
ment efforts while potentially
providing a region-specific
recreational season in four
counties.
The FWC manages marine
fish from the shore to nine
nautical miles in the Gulf of
Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico
Fishery Management Council
manages Gulf of Mexico
waters farther than nine nau-
tical miles out. The following
changes will make state gag
grouper management efforts
the same as recent federal
gag groupei' management
efforts in the Gulf of Mexico:
setting the recreational open
season from July 1 through
Oct. 31 and lowering the mini-
mum commercial size limit
from 24 inches to 22 inches
total length.
The commission also
authorized Chairman Kathy
Barco and Executive Director
Nick Wiley to issue an execu-
tive order opening gag
grouper season in the state
waters off Taylor. Jefferson,
Wakulla and Franklin coun-
ties, including Apalachicola
Bay and Indian Pass. This gag
grouper recreational season,
if implemented, will open har-

vest in state waters during
April, May and June and close
harvest in those waters dlur-
ing the July-to-October sea-
son. These changes will bet-
ter align fishing opportunity
with fish availability.
"I think we have to be sen-
sitive to the economic side
and the natural resource
side," said Commissioner
Charles W. Roberts III. "I
don't think there is anybody
here, especially in this room,
who would like to jeopardize
gag grouper. This isn't an
easy decision. We have to rely
on the data we have available
and make good decisions."
Gag grouper has been
closed in Gulf of Mexico state
waters since Nov. 16.
The FWC believes apply-


ing these management
changes will allow gag
grouper populations to
rebuild quickly while balanc-
ing the needs of anglers.

The Florida Fish and.

Commission introduced a
new feature on its website.
Users can now view and
search a database of Florida
boat ramps.
"Providing safe, conven-
ient access to Florida's water-
ways is one of our goals," said
Pat Harrell, the FWC's boat-
ing access coordinator. 'This
database is designed to help
keep boaters informed about
facilities that are currently
available."
Boaters can visit the
Public Boat Ramp Finder site
to locate and obtain details for
more than 1,600 publicly
accessible boat ramps.
"People can look for boat
ramps within a certain county,
on a lake they'd like to visit or
even search for boat ramps
near a specific street address
or GPS coordinates," Harrell
said. "The database provides
a map, details and often pho-
tos of the ramps."
The database was created
from an inventoryconducted
for the Statewide Boating
Access Inventory and
Economic Assessment. The
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
provided funding through the
Wildlife and Sport Fish
Restoration's Boating Access
Program. Working with boat-
ing access management part-
ners, including Florida's
counties and the Department
of Environmental Protection,
the FWC identified and
indexed approximately 3,440
boat ramps around the state.


To access the database,
visit MyFWC.com/Boating.
To help improve and update
this database, the public is
asked to mail BoatRamps

errors or new information.

have a heck of a time getting
Dickie those tops off. In addition, we
Anderson have a wide variety of over-the-


a pill for whatever ails you


counter drugs that either slow
things down or speed things up
or treat a pesky cold. And, of
course, we have our "house"
aspirin.
Our collection of prescription
and over-the-counter drugs
includes medications promising
to control blood pressure, relieve
arthritic pain, balance hormones
and treat glaucoma. Not to be
left out, our dogs have their own
set of pills that prevent heart-
worm and flea and tick attacks.
How did we become some
dependent on the pills in our
lives? Part of the problem is the


seduction of constant advertis-
ing. The dramatic television com-
mercials and glossy magazine
ads promise eternal youth, sexu-
al prowess, freedom from aller-
gies, relief from gas and mental
well-being. Just take a pill no
problem.
When picking up prescrip-
tions from our pharmacy we
struggle to read the small type
that warns us not to drive heavy
duty machines, make major deci-
Ssions, take medication if preg-
nant, plan to get pregnant or are
breast feeding. We probably
would not take any of pills if we


took seriously the side ffec ts
the drug companies are required
to tell us about. Blindness and
death, just to mention two.
We do seem to become our
parents. Big Guy and I both
remember all the pills our par-
ents took as they aged. Now it is
our turn to master tile proper
combination of the myriad of
drug offerings on the market.
My father struggled with a wide
array of ailments toward the end
of his life. His pharmacy bill each
month boggled the mind. He was
meticulous in the management
of the many pills that he took


each day, but as he began to lose
his sight and pills dropped to the
floor, we feared that his beloved
Scottic was gobbling them up.
We watched dog and master
carefully. Neither developed sus-
picious symptoms, so we did not
intervene.
Pills are here to stay. So Big
Guy and I are "doing" drugs, but,
hopefully, responsibly!

ber of recipients of these services by 20-30 percent," stated Fran
Shea, board president.
'The COA is relocating from its location across from Baptist
Medical Center Nassau to property between North 13th and 14th

are completed for a new East Nassau senior center, to be named
The life Center, although a naming opportunity exists should a
major benefactor step forward. The COA is in the midst of a capital
campaign to allow relocation in the summer of 2013. "However,
construction of the life Center is only partially funded, so much
work remains to be done. We need our community's help in accom-
plishing this task," stated Allen Lennon, capital campaign chairman.

Maggie is a sweet, loving
Shepherd mix who we think
would be a great addition to
any family, including a single
owner or a family with chil-
dren. She's young and house-
trained and was an "inside
dog" in a home with a yard;
her owners had to move and
couldn't take her with them.
She's extremely friendly and
affectionate, with a great,
happy personality. She's medi-
um-sized, with a beautiful
brown and black coat that's
nice and soft for petting. She
loves to play!
Aliyah is a very sweet
mama cat who now needs a
loving home of her own after
being a loving morn to her kit-
tens. She's a Domestic Short
Hair mix, quiet and affection-
ate and enjoys being petted.
She's very pretty and we think


she'd be a good companion
cat. If you come home from a
stressful day and you'd like a
sweet, calming influence in
your life, please come meet
