County may expand closed landfill
GARRETT PELICAN -* *- they cannot merely sell it: they nee
News Leader someone to make a proposal.


Aiming to expedite closure of the
West Nassau Landfill, Nassau County
Commissioners voted unanimously
Monday to initiate the process of pur-
chasing a sliver of property adjacent
to the landfill.
Before the board can make an
offer to buy the 3/4-acre property,
owned by Rayonier, the land must be
surveyed and appraised, said County
Attorney David Hallman.
Plans to purchase the property
arose in a Jan. 19 memo when Public
Works Director Scott Herring
informed Hallman and County
Manager Ted Selby of a permitting
issue that might delay the landfill's
closure, the county attorney said.


'Over the years, the access road on the east side
of the landfill has crept onto Rayonier property.
As part of the permitting requirements for
closing the landfill, the county is required to fence
the property for security purposes.
PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR SCOTT HERRING


"(Herring) came to me a few
weeks ago and indicated ... that on
the back of the landfill, we have a lit-
tle road that's sort of for county use
only that has encroached onto a piece
of property that belongs to Rayonier,"
said Hallman. "We need to acquire
that piece of property in order to facil-


itate the closure."
Hallman said there are no trees
on the property -and because it
remains part of a real estate invest-
ment trust, the county has to make an
unsolicited offer to buy it.
As Rayonier designated the prop-
erty as part of that trust, Selby said,

Over the years, the access road
on the east side of the landfill has
crept onto Rayonier Property,"
Herring wrote in his memo. "As part
of the permitting requirements for
closing the landfill, the county is
required to fence the property for
security purposes."
Selby said Tuesday the piece of
land is a sliver next to the tree line.
Presently all sides of the landfill are
fenced, save the eastern border where
the access road is. The county needs
to purchase the property to avoid plac-
ing the fence in the middle of that
road, the county manager said.
"It's almost like an easement,"
added Selby.

A stitch in time


HEATHER A. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER SUBMITTED
"Granny Callie" Miller still makes sweet pickles and pear relish at almost 100 years old, left. A teenage Callie Sliger on the farm in Brush
Creek, Tenn.


Nearly a century old, The Lord's been real


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
T he world was a different
place when "Granny
Callie" Miller was a little
girl.
Born Martha Caroline "Callie"
Sliger on Sept. 11, 1912, in Athens,
Tenn.. in a place called Brush
Creek, she recalls a time when life
moved at a slower pace.
"Life was simple when I was
growing up. We traveled every-
where by wagon and mule. Hardly
anyone had cars. There were no
telephones, television or electricity
and no indoor plumbing. Food was


cooked on a wood-burning stove
and clothes were washed on a scrub
board."
There were six boys and two
girls in the Sliger home and every-
one had their roles.
"Us children did the hoeing. We
picked the cotton and peas. We got
two weeks off school in the fall to
help with harvest. We had chickens
for eggs and cows for milk and but-
ter.
"We grew everything we ate,
made cane syrup and raised cows
and hogs that we salted and hung in
a smokehouse in sugar sacks after
they were killed and dressed. Water
was carried from a well and every-


one bathed in a number two wash
tub in cold water after coming in
from the fields."
The busy farm girl learned to
sew by standing behind an aunt
who lived down the road.
"She had a treadle sewing
machine and I sewed on that"
School was a favorite place, espe-
cially on Fridays when they had a
spelling bee because she always
won.
After graduating from the eighth
grade, Miller made her living
sewing clothes and never worked
outside the home.
Family entertainment did not
come on a big-screen TV. It was


good to me'
Fibber McGee and Molly on the
wireless radio or a good book. The
same aunt who taught her to sew
had a little bookcase in her home.
"When I didn't have any house-
work or work in the field, I read. I
believe I read every one of those
books."
In 1931 she married James
Conlin Miller, a farmer and barber.
The couple had nine children and
they all wore clothing sewn by their
mother.
The family moved to Florida in
1956, and James Miller passed away
in 1974.

Larkin



family



divided



on fate

GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader
Relatives of Dick and Myra Larkin,
struggling to cope with Greg Larkin's
conviction for his parents' murders,
said Thursday their family has implod-
ed in the wake of the couple's deaths.
Family members are divided into
two camps, those who believe Greg
Larkin is guilty and those who maintain
his innocence, said the couple's niece,
Heather Larkin McLachlan.
McLachlan said she had been "vilified"
by family for suspecting her cousin's
guilt.
"Greg has done a great job fooling
some people in this family and part of
me hates him for that," she said at a
sentencing hearing Thursday in
Nassau County Circuit Court, but"...
justice was served in this courtroom
when Gi-eg was found guilty."
Rick Iarkin, the late couple's eldest
son, said he hoped family-written let-
ters of mitigation would factor into his
brother's sentence, citing his parents'
beliefs.
"I know how I was raised," he said.
"I know what my parents' values were,
and I hope they'll be upheld. ... My
birth family, has largely been
destroyed, but I still have my life."
Greg Larkin, 38, who appeared to
be stunned and sat silently as his fam-
ily discussed his fate in court, faces
the death penalty in the capital murder
case and is due to be sentenced by
Judge Robert Foster on March 15 a( 1
p.m.
Helen Larkin, Rick'- wife. chlidh.I
her brother-in-law for his cruel and
heinous actions -
and his cowardice.
"You said the
truth would come
out during the trial,
but we. were
silenced."
She said Greg's
actions tainted her
children's memories Larkin
of their grandpar- -. ..
ents. Memories they
had of spending time with their grand-
parents in their Caprice Iaine home
on Amelia Island are now sullied by
images of a bloodstained crime scene,
she said.
McLachlan said she corresponded
with Greg through letters during his
incarceration, donated money to his
commissary account and even con-
tributed to his legal defense when he
wanted to hire a private attorney all,
out of respect for his parents.
During her conversations with
Greg, she said, she was surprise d to
find him so upbeat. It was during one
conversation that she realized she was
looking at the face of "crazy."
"I also realized this is what evil
looks like," she added.
Dick and Myra were a gift to Greg,
McLachlan said. They had supported
him growing up and continued to do so
into his adulthood. He had no concept
of accountability, she said, and instead
he had a sense of entitlement.
"You cannot prepare yourself for
the presence of evil within your own
family," she said.
A jury ruled unanimously Feb. 17
that Larkin should be sentenced to
death for his crimes. Twelve jurors

Consumers remain


modestly optimistic


I rNer5i:), f c.qi.J

GAINESVILLE -
Consumer confidence among
Floridians dropped slightly in
February from January. accor-
ding to a Unh-ersiry of Florida
surve6-. The modest decline
followed two months of rising
levels of confidence in the
economy.
"The pattern of consumer
confidence in Florida over the
last three months is exactly
the same as it was a year ago,"
said Chris McCarty, director
of UF's Survey Research Cen-
ter in the Bureau of Economic
and Business Research.
The test of whether the
confidence is sustained will
come in March, he said. In
2011, it dropped and contin-
ued to decline steadily until
August as Americans reacted
pessimistically to events at
home and abroad.
For the moment, however,
various economic indicators
show why Floridians remain
modestly optimistic. For exam-
ple, recent stock market activ-
ity reached post-recession
highs, lifting the Dow Jones
industrial average over 13,000.
This rise, McCarty said, tops
a "psychological barrier that if
passed could lead to increased
investment."
Florida's unemployment
rate in December dropped to
9.9 percent. Most of the new
jobs were in trade, trans-
portation and utilities. Home
prices, which edged up to an
average $134,300 in Decem-
ber, have stabilized since,
though they, are expected to
decline again later in the year
if the Florida Legislature
approves legislation ,to speed
up foreclosures on 368,000
properties, McCarty said.,
Three of the five'categories
measured by the survey
revealed a drop in confidence
among respondents in Febru-
ary. For instance, their overall
perception of being personal-
ly better off financially now
than a year ago, expectations
that personal finances will
improve by this time next.year
and trust in the U.S. economy
over the next five years all
declined.
Respondents, however,
were upbeat in their assess-
ment of whether now is a good
time to buy big-ticket items


such as a coinpu;zer or wash-
ing machine, registering an
increase 01of confidence.
Only one category showed
no change. Confidence in the
U.S economy a year from now
remains the sainme
While women's confidence
in the economy dipped, men's
rose. Overall, those under 60
were more positive than their
older counterparts.
Meanwhile. a recent
LUniversity of Michigan study
showed consumer sentiment
across the nation, like that in
Florida, also remained rela-
tively unchanged, rising slight-
ly from January.
New concerns could nega-
tively affect Floridians assess-
ment of coming economic con-
ditions in 2012.
"This year we have con-
cerns over Syria and Iran, and
the overhang of the European
debt crisis," McCarty said. In
addition, gas prices, which
rose 25 cents in January, are
likely to top $4 a gallon this
summer. They could increase
even more if tensions between
the U.S. and Iran intensify.
Floridians' economic out-
look is clouded by a host of
issues: the presidential elec-
tion, the possible expiration of
the Bush tax cuts in 2013, a
fresh round of budget cuts
mandated by Congress and
possible fallout from steps
taken to avert default in coun-
tries such as Italy, Spain and
Greece.
The UF survey was con-
ducted between Feb. 12 and
Feb. 23, before much of the
latest gasoline price hike took
effect.

he underwent three evalua-

Larkin has maintained his
innocence since his arrest in
April 2009, contending he was
on a job interview in Mexico
when his parents were killed
and that prosecutors failed to
establish a motive, proper time-
line or provide adequate DNA
evidence connecting him to the
murders.
Prosecutors contend he

smashed his father's head with
a statue at their Caprice lane
home in a rage over their plans
to sell a failing family business
he had been running in Costa
Rica.

Higher ed =

higher pay
TALIAHASSEE A new
economic study suggests that
having a degree from one of
Florida's 11 state universities
can be a financial lifesaver -
equivalent to more than $1
million in a worker's lifetime
earnings.
Economists fiom IN. and
the University of Florida,
using data from tl e state's
Department of Education,
found an employee working
in Florida in 2009-10 with just
a high school diploma earned
$20.924. compared to $36,520
for those with a bachelor's
degree, with a master's
degree. $58.698: a doctorate,
$66,743. and professionals,
such as physicians or attor-
neys. $70,716.
Extended to 30 years and
accounting for typical pay
increases, the difference
between those with high
school diplomas and higher
degrees was vast, with bach-
elor's degree recipients out-
pacing high school graduates
by more than $550,000; mas-.
ter's degrees, more than
$850,000; doctorates, more
than $1.3 million; and pro-
fessionals, more than $1.8
million.


'Prudent-man theory' at work here


There is an axiom in the
investment world known as the
"prudent-man theory."
It is a process of evaluating a
decision or outcome against
what a prudent man would have
done. It is intended to provide a
benchmark of logic and fairness
ar'd prudence.
This theory could help in
making decisions in running a
city, county or school board.
Think about it. After discussing
a topic, elected officials could
pause before voting and ask
themselves: "What would a pru:
dent man (or woman) do?"
Let's see how it would work
in reality.
$,Situatipn No. 1: Fernandina
Beach city officials are divided
over What to do with the down-
town library. They have con-
sidered buying a new building
and relocating the library there,


S, or leaving the
existing build-
ing in place
and expand-
. r'' ing it.
Prudent
^man theory: It
makes more
sense to
improve and
STEVE'S expand the
MARKET existing build-
PLACE ing. The pur-
chase and
renovation of
Steve Nicklas a new build-
ing would
cost much more and take much
longer (imprudent). The money
and time you save could be put
toward updating the content
within the library.
That was easy. Let's try
another.
Situation No. 2: Most every-
one in Fernandina Beach
(including city officials) wants to
improve the downtown water-
front. You don't have to be pru-
dent to realize that the water-
front is unattractive and


ineffective, despite a few
noticeable improvements from
the private firm managing the
marina. Committees have
been formed and charettes have
been staged producing
enough studies to fill a small
library.
Prudent man theory: The
old part of the marina gathers
silt like an airborne French fry
attracts seagulls. Removing the
silt is expensive and dumping
the muddy sludge is difficult.
'Let's relocate all of the boat slips
to the north (where some have
been placed), and build a
delightful pier over the slips of
the old marina. Imagine a small-
er version of the pier at Mallory
Square in Key West; it cduld'be
a nice complement to a coveted
waterfront park.
Situation No. 3: City Hall has
been shaken up with 'the
removal of the city manager.
Interim manager Dave Lott is
knowledgeable and practical,
but probably has limited power.
Meanwhile, there are lingering,
unresolved issues facing the city


- and whoever takes over' the
full-time position.
Prudent man theory: Move
quickly to hire a full-time
manager with a businessman's
acumen who has insight into
the city's situation (like Joe
Gerrity). Evaluate each depart-
ment head and enforce person-
nel changes to facilitate/stream-
line services.
. Overall, city employees must
become more friendly and hos-
pitable to citizens and busi-
nesses (i.e. taxpayers) -espe-
cially in the building and zoning
departments. And light up the
town once again by putting the
white lights back in all of the
trees on Centre Street, like

Who knows? Maybe this
prudent-man thing could have
some applications here.

advisor with a major financial

PRESIDENT

BcurJvoDimr ,

The Amelia Arts Academy
needs your help. We are strug-
gling with rising expenses ver-
s.us a stagnant income. It is dif-
ficult to survive with the1
int come genei-t(ed prim.iaily by
private music lessons. We have
a good donor base and people
who are faithltul to the ar.s, but
what we rteviv\e does not begin
to pay the bills. Our rent at the
Peck Center for six studios.
office space and the band room
is niore than \\'k' can afford.
Because of the lack of funds..
we are going to have to leave
the Peck Center and find other
space. The Academy has been
offered office space and we
will be moving that part of our
business within six weeks.
In reality, we are just bare-
ly surviving and need a great
deal more support from the
community at large. If some-
one could offer space for teach-
ers to teach private lessons it
would allow us to continue
doing the work we do. Basic-
ally, we are still trying to do-
what we have always done, that
of serving the community
through arts education. We
still have students on scholar-
ships and tuition assistance,
thanks to ARIAS and our own
budget. However, unless fund-
ing increases we will have to let
the scholarship program go.
Our "After School Arts" ini-
tiative is providing both musi-
cal and visual arts experiences
to children who cannot come
to the Peck Center for private
instruction. We are offering
free arts instruction through
this initiative and reaching
large numbers of children who
have little or no access to the
arts. We have developed a part-
nership with the Nassau
County Schools and are grate-
ful for the opportunity to pro-
vide the band program at
Emma Love three days a week.
This initiative is funded totally
by the Arts Academy through
donations. It is our hope to
expand our after school pro-
grams in the future. The rela-
tionship with Emma ILove has
been particularly good and we
intend to continue the pursuit
of excellence in this,program*ij
I've described above what
we hope to continue doing.
What we will not be doing is

What can you do to help?
1. If there is anyone out

would be willing to share, we
would be most grateful.
.2. Making a donation to the

be a wonderful way to help.
3. Volunteering once a

very beneficial to us.

Amelia Island hosted the 2012 Florida
Technology Student Association Annual State
Conference and Competitions. With 24,000
students in chapters in middle schools and
high schools throughout Florida, TSA involves
some of the best students in science, tech-
nology, engineering and math in our state.
The annual competition involves about 65
separate events, half for middle school stu-
dents and half for high school students, rang-
ing from robotics, computer aided design and
manufacturing prototype to fashion design,
flight endurance and music production to lead-
ership strategies, debating and extemporane-
ous presentation. For each topic, there were
many presentations in a preliminary round,
then the top 10 semi-finalists were judged a sec-
ond time (sometimes with a second task
assigned on-site) to select and rank order the
winners.
This large conference brought over 1,000
students and many faculty members to the
Omni Resort on Amelia Island, the only venue
in )ur.area with, adequate, facilities 'or such a
meeting.:-This new-to-us event required a large
number of volunteers to serve as judges for
each competition. Thanks to Don Hughes,.
Jody Mackle, Stan Cottle, Susan and Tom
Silverio, FSCJ Nassau Center, Leadership

highly qualified volunteers were able to assist

The heart of our community


nSonm issues arc like the proverbial bad
penny, [heytjus' keep turning up. Short-Lern
rentals. aka residenTial rentals, seems to be
one of hth:-e issues, but unlike the penny.
whose relevance is continually undermined by
inflation, the illogical notio" that one has the
right to rent out one's property in the middle
of a residential area appears To be gaining
momentum.
The arguments in favor of residential
rentals, in my opinion, have never been per-
suasive: in fact. they have absolutely no merit.
There's the tradition argument, that resi-
dential rentals should be allowed to continue
because they've been common, historically.
along the beach. Think 1950's and 60's. propo-
nents say, and familiar families from South
Georgia coming clown year after year: they
were a sign of summer and most everybody
knew them. But that was then, when the nunm-
ber of rentals compared to full-time residents
was relatively small, this is now and that coim-
parison is reversed.
There's the availability argument, that
there simply aren't enough hotel/motel/condo
rooms in the vicinity of the beach to satisfy
demand, therefore residential rentals absorb
the surplus. Well, I'm not sure that curing
demand problems with illegal activity is the
right way to go; sends the wrong message.
There's the property rights argument, that
somehow property owners have the right to
do whatever they want to with their property:
they own the house, or apartment, therefore
they have a property right to rent it out
Nonsense. My wife and I own a two-story
house downtown. Suppose we want to supple-
ment our income by turning it into a bed-and-
breakfast, or inn, or restaurant? Or I've always
been a farm guy, maybe we'll put some pigs in
the back yard, or goats, or horses. No, we're
not zoned for the inn or the restaurant, and
city codes prevent the pigs and goats. Are our
property rights violated by the zoning and

Businesses are kept busy and by being kept
bu.'sy tle 're able to hire people and pay taxes.
and the people they hire spend money and
rent apartments and buy gas and buy food.
and. well., you can predict the rest.
And in the micro sense. individuals can buy
expensive homes along the beach and rent
them for $1,000 to .t'2.500 a week. homes they
couldn't afford otherwise, homes they'd never
be able to pay for. For these unhappy people,
residential rentals aren't a luxury, they're an
absolute necessity.
The tradition and availability arguments
can be countered, and the property rights
argument is so ridiculous, so specious, that it
has no relevancy. The economic argument
though, is tough. Renters in a residential area,
no matter how illegal, do spend money: they
help the local economy. And renters in a resi-
dential area do help property owners pay for:
homes they can't afford.
So shouldn't the economic argument pre-
vail? No, and here's why...
Allowing commercial intrusion into resi-
dential zoning at the beach is a bad idea
because it sets bad precedent. If the economic
argument makes sense at be beach, why not

dominium. Well, that's 500 people b inlgn :oid
spending in the local economy'
What about the people who 'ioultthl
homes in these residential areas and ;l ie lull
time Fernandina Beach residents, whlt about
their rights? Do they have the basic right ot
quiet enjoymllent of properly?" They did Itheir
due diligence and bought in good faith, expect-
ing the city to protect them from further com-
mercial intrusion, to enforce the tresorl rental
ordinance, should their rights be sacrificed foti
economics?
Fernandina Beach is a special place and
our quality of life, I believe, is unique. Part of
what makes this place special is the dedication
of our people to the protection of our neigh-
borhoods. protection from commercial intru-
sion and takeover.
For 40 years we've been struggling with
one central question: What kind of community
are we now, what kind of community do we
want to be and what kind of community do we
want to leave our children. Well, speaking for
myself, I hope we will always be a family-cen-
tered community which values neighborhoods
and their protection. And I hope we under-
stand that renting homes and apartments with-
in those neighborhoods undermines that pro-
tection.
So will the issue of residential rentals go
away? No, not when the real issue is money.
I just hope we understand that when neigh-
borhoods are corrupted by commercialism,
they go away. And when neighborhoods go
away, so does the heart of the community.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Sheddinglight
on the subject
To give you an insight on the
success of the Centre Street proj-
ect, which after years of planning,
beginning in the early '70s and corn-
pleted in early May 1978, we
received great publicity unprece-
dented. I contacted Southern Living
as we neared completion. Theyvis-
ited us and printed a great story on
what we had accomplished. Good
Housekeeping also wrote a wonder-
ful story on Centre Street. We were
also written up in Sky magazine.
A feature writer for the Miami
Herald heard about what we had
done and visited Fernandina. He
proceeded to produce a full page of
color photos of Centre Street and a,
great story, which I helped provide'
information for. This syndicated col-
umn appeared in newspapers across
the country, including the Miami
Herald, Los Angeles Times and
Boston Globe. You just can't buy this
kind of publicity. I have letters from
cities all over the country who read
about us and wanted to know more
about how to accomplish it. I per-
sonally visited as many as nine cities
in Florida and made presentations at
the request of the Department of
Commerce.
To put it mildly, including the
lighting We Do It Right!
Light the trees-The Right Way.
Whoever ordered the lights be taken
from the trees on Centre Street
should be fired! They should also be
forced to pay to put the lights back
in the trees.
To take them out was a slap in
the face of the professionalism with
which Centre Street was redevel-
oped some 34 years ago.
To supposedly save a few dol-
lars, Centre Street, which was once
described as one of the most beau-
tiful streets in the United States, its
charm and appeal has been greatly
diminished.
When people complained, the
brilliant city put some lights in a
small tree on the corner of Second
and Centre. It looks like a tree that
would be decorated in front of a
haunted house. Then the city deco-
rated another tree just as unattrac-
tive. When I complained to our
$7,000 a month acting city manager
as to the way the lights were being
placed in the trees, his (insult to
your intelligence) response was they
have to be put in that way because
of the wind. As though we haven't
had any wind for the past 30 years.
The lights were placed in pro-
fessionally at the direction of F.
Eugene Smith Associates, the
design consultant firm from Bath,
Ohio in 1978. How did the lights
possibly stay in the trees all those
years with an absolute minimum of
problems?
What is difficult to think about,
not one who made or condoned
these decisions was in an','y way
involved in the local participation in
this project. which began in the early
70s. Not only that, at least 90 per-
cent of them didn't even live here

ADAM ZYGI.IS/fiitE I[BU'FFALO NEWS


Death penalty
I was shocked to read the head-
line in the Feb. 22 issue, "Jury:
Larkin deserves death."
It is my opinion that no human
being, regardless of how heinous a
crime she or he has committed,
"deserves" to be put to death. I
believe no person or group of per-
sons has the right to judge whether
another person should live or die.
This applies to members of the jury,
as well as to the justices of the U.S.
Supreme Court.
I This nation is now the only coun-
try in the Western world and the
only country in the Americas to
allow the death penalty. Within the
United States, 16 states have abol-
ished the death penally altogether.
There are many reasons to abol-
ish the death penalty, including pos-
sible bias in the jury selection
process. Many death row prisoners
(25 in Florida since 1972) have been
exonerated and released from prison
when evidence has been brought
forward about their innocence.
There appears to be no valid evi-
dence that executing prisoners
serves as a deterrent to other peo-
ple committing murder. In Florida,
we now are facing another negative
aspect of the death penalty process:
the high cost of the trials plus
appeals of the verdict.
I believe it is high time that Gov.
Scott calls for a moratorium on the
death penalty. Scott can then appoint
a commission to study alternatives
to the death penalty.

Aerobatics box
I am a pilot. aircraft o'.'.ner and
have been based at the Fernandina
Beach airport for almost seven
years For the record I am not an
acrobatic pilot nor have 1I lo'wn in thi'
active box ('Cily ()K aerobatic
box." Feb. 24),
Pilots from ail over the wv.orld
come to Fernandina [to b'tefi from
Keoki Gray's kno-vedg and expert-
ise of acrobatic competition. From
per-onal observ.-Iion rn,- stay sev-
eral diam,, adding m our local econo,-
my and I would guess all have pur-
chltocd fii'tI Thesec are aerobatiic
aircrati Indl i. ti land ,with no
i1io tlh ~ n 1 ;ni :t-, of fue remain-
ing


Prior to the start of the air show
season it is'not unusual for top
national performers and crew to
spend several days with Mr. Gray
honing their skills and developing
new programs for air show atten-
dees to enjoy. They stay in local
hotels and eat in our restaurants.
I have never heard a local pilot
complain about the box and there is
no conflict with normal operations.
The box is located between the
approach/departure ends of three
runways and in no way interferes
with operations. And when the box
is open it is normally for short peri-
ods of time.
Although the permit allows oper-
ation up to 63 hours per month I
believe the total use last year was in
the neighborhood of 60 hours.
Mr. Gray is a small businessman
operating Amelia Island Aerobatics
at our airport. Without the box I
suspect his business would close.
Aviation activity of all kind ben-
efits our airport and Fernandina/
Amelia Island.
Jim Layman

Openbox
In response to Ms. (Barbara)
Farnsworth's complaint regarding
the aerobatic box at the airport, and
her efforts to close it, I feel that I
must write this letter of rebuttal
(fAcrobatic area up for permit
renewal" Feb. 22). I firmly believe
that the aerobatic box should remain
open. Her view is so slanted that it
reads like bad fiction.
M'. Farnsworth lives in the
Parkway North development on
Fitleist Drive, which is located east
of the airroxrt, and she complains
aboui the noise from the box when
it is used. lhe acrobatic box is locat-
ed wet of the airport, so there is
more bhan a mile from the box to
any, homers on TI tlei- Drivre. IThe local
gardener- in their neighborhood
with 'heir biw'.ers make more noise
'?an an airplane more than a mile!
awaay. I ver' ". used to live in the
,d-'va Verde Subdivision, which is
cnoser to the airport than Ms.
[arn,s.''ornh's development, from
1987 to 1999. and was not subjected
to excessive airplane noise.
Every six vtars or ,o someone
moves into a neighborhood that is,
some-what close to the airport and
hCn complains about the noise, I


have fought this battle before.
She also mentions the hazard
while an airplane is taking off while
the box is active. First of all, the
pilots would be notified by NOTAM
(Notice to Airmen), written word or
speech, that the box is active.
Communications with the aerobatic
trainer would be done on the com-
mon radio frequency, which is 122.7,
between both the dt,-p1. litheL aircraft
and the one in the aerobatic box.
The aerobatic box is not used unless
prior notification to all airmen by
NOTAM is sent to the FAA to be
included in the briefings that pilots
receive prior to flight.
She also stated that acrobatic
pilots fly in to use the box and do not
even buy fuel here, thus contributing
nothing to the local economy. This
is an inaccurate statement. The air-
planes that come here regularly are
not aerobatic airplanes. A more accu-
rate scenario is that the aerobatic
box is only used occasionally, and by
highly skilled pilots, and they do
buy fuel here.

Part of our heritage
The Amelia Island Museum of
History, and I personally, wish to
express our thanks to all the spon-
sors, donors, golfers and volunteers
who made the 10th annual Museum
Golf Tournament such a great suc-
cess.
It turned out to be a wonderful
event hosting 136 golfers not only for
the "contest" but also for a party the
night before and an awards event
that evening. The contributors are
too numerous to identify individually
but thank you to all.
The proceeds from this fundrais-
er will help preserve our history al
heritage '"hr. -uJ'h the many pro~jecl,
and local programs provided by the
museum. Programs range from
exhibits, walking tours, lectures and
children's programs to taped inttr-
views of military veterans and a new
oral history project entitled Heritage
Keepers. Community participation
of this sort keeps the doors open'
Please come in and visit the
museum, view the exhibits, take a
tour and become a member, It-is a
large part of our heritage.

When the Sargasso Sea blows ashore


Every -)o often when I walk
on the beach I'm reminded :hat
just beyond our shore-, there ic,
a teeming rna-,, of productivity,
the green mats oi sargas--sum
weed floating just east of the
Gu If Stream in an area 700 milesk
wide by 2,(X) miles long called
the Sarga-,ss- Sea.
Although the large floating
mats are way too far out to -sea
to view from shore, all it takes is
a steady ea-,terlyv wind of
enough magnitude and the
miles fall away and the weed
comes to the beach.
Weed is not really a good
term for these clump, of algae.
Weed infers something that is.,
growing where it should not, a
nuisance. No, sargassum weed
is no nuisance. For many crit-
ters in the sea it is the staff of
life, the habitat they live in, find
food and shelter in, and many
animals spend their lives float-
ing along with it. Unlike many
similar forms of algae world-
wide, this plant comes with tiny
floats that keep it at the surface,
and it multiplies without ever
being attached to a hard sur-
face.
When it sometimes washes
up on our beach, the plentitude
of life sargassum weed carries
with it is evident. On sargassum
weed days at the beach, there's
a lot for a beach-walker like me
to look for. For many shore-
birds, the weed brings in a feast
of plenty. Little crabs and fish
and other marine critters inhab-
it these mats of algae and land
on shore hidden deep in the
vegetation. The willets, ruddy
turnslonesand sandpipers poke
and prod within the weed, look-
ing for food. When they are so
occupied, it is easier to snap
their photos they are just too
busy to worry about nearby
humans. It's a great time to bird-
watch, if you don't mind the
wind that brought the sargas-
sum weed to shore in the first
place.
Whenever I find clumps of
sargassum weed, I get to work
myself, scavenging away like a
shorebird, gleaning whatever I
can find in the masses of vege-
tation. Loggerhead sea turtles,
those very same creatures that
lay eggs on our shore, spend
their young lives living within

Foster- lurlcy


the words out
in hth Se.as-







rSom pretir a-
. young turtles
are blown
back ashore
within patch-
es of ,argas-
llsum weed.
Although I've


not yet found any, I always look.
And if I do find one, I would
immediately contact people with
Amelia Island Sea Turtle Watch
or the G(eorgia Sea Turtle
Center in Jekyll Island (912-635-
4444). These young turtles may
be cold-shocked, dehydrated or
otherwise unfit to be put back in
the sea without some TLC at
the center first.
Besides looking for sea tur-
tles, I also always look for those
strange misshapen fish, the sar-
gassum fish, which are so well
camouflaged that you have to
shake the weed to make them
drop out to the sand. These
small fish have a mouth that can
open to swallow prey nearly
their own size, and they have
fins modified like hands to help
them move through the sea-
weed.
Years ago when I was an
aquarist at Miami Seaquarium I
admired these fish, watched
them feed and even helped a
National Geographic photogra-
piler set up a special narrow
tank where he could, he
hoped, catch just that moment
when the sargassum fish gulped
down its large prey He never
got the shot he wanted, and
I've never found a sargassum
fish in the seaweed here on
Amelia Island, but I still keep
looking.
Other critters lurk in the
weed too. Crabs and mollusks ,
and sponges and all sorts' of
marine life have adapted to a
life floating at sea in the large
mats of sargassum weed.
But be warned, not every-
thing in sargassumn weed is
pleasant to handle. One (lay I

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Garrett
Pelican of the Nevs-Leaderfrom
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
the city of Fernandina Beach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147

Hilliard and Bryce-ville. The "We
Tip" program 1-809-78CRIME
also allows callers to leave
anonymous tips.

Leaving the scene
Authorities arrested a
Fernandina Beach man early
Sunday morning after he fled
the scene of a crash, according
to police reports.
Deputies responding about
4:30 a.m. to reports of an acci-
dent at 474431 SR 200 found an
overturned car with a woman
inside who told them a man had


gotten out of the car and fled
the scene. Injured and unable to
recall the man's name, the
woman was transported to
Baptist Medical Center Nassau,
deputies said.
While others were investi-
gating the crash, one deputy
encountered a man in black
pants and a white T-shirt car-
rying a dog and walking along
the road. He told deputies he
had been drinking and did not
want to drive intoxicated.
At the hospital, the woman
told deputies she had been at a
birthday party for Brent Austin
Carnes, but she was too intoxi-
cated to drive. Carnes, who she
said had been drinking, offered
to drive her home, according
to the report. Her description
matched the man deputies pre-
viously encountered.
Deputies contacted Carnes
about 6 a.m. at home and arrest-
ed him. He admitted to leaving
the scene because he was
"scared" and did not intend to
leave his passenger in the car,
deputies said.

of a crash without rendering
aid.

Contraband items
A Fernandina Beach woman
arrested late Saturday night for
driving under the influence and
tag violations was charged with
bringing contraband items into
the jail, deputies said.
Deputies said Jamie Alane
Wooten's gray Chrysler was
pulled over on Buccaneer Trail
for failing to dim her headlights.
A search of her tag revealed it
had been expired for more than
one year and her decal
belonged to another vehicle,
deputies said.
Wooten, 47, smelled of alco-
hol, had a flushed face and
watery, bloodshot eyes and per-
formed poorly on all her field
sobriety exercises, deputies
reported.
Wooten told deputies she
had glasses of wine at home,
according to an arrest and book-
ing report. Breath test results
indicated her blood alcohol con-
centration was 0.186 at the time
of her arrest, deputies said. The
legal limit is 0.08.
Deputies said they asked
Wooten if she had illegal items
in her possession before she
was admitted to jail. An inven-
tory of her purse at the jail
revealed one and a half pills of
the muscle relaxant clon-
azepam, deputies said. Wooten
told deputies she did not have a
prescription for them.
Wooten, of 224 South
Fletcher Ave., Fernandina
Beach is charged with intro-
ducing contraband into a deten-
tion facility, possession of con-
trolled substances, driving
'under the influence, unlawful
tag alteration and expired tag.
Bond is set at a total of $8,510.

Stun gun used
Police stunned a Missouri
man early Saturday morning at
a Fernandina Beach hotel after
they were called to deal with a


domestic disturbance, accord-
ing to an arrest and booking
report.
Seaside Amelia Inn person-
nel phoned authorities about
2:43 a.m. after guests com-
plained of what sounded like a
domestic disturbance in room
225, police said. The room's
occupants, Chelsea Wilks and
her boyfriend Cory Wright, told
police they had been arguing.
but there was no physical vio-
lence.
Police said that while speak-
ing with the couple, they
watched Wright remove a plas-
tic bag of marijuana from his
person and fling it under a near-
by chair in an attempt to hide it.
He was placed under arrest
but as police escorted him to
the elevator, he snatched his
arm free, they said. Police said
they used a takedown on Wright
to get him to the floor, but he
kicked them and got to his feet.
Police said Wright resisted
several orders to get on the
ground before they deployed a
stun gun. Although police shot
Wright with the stun gun, only
one probe struck him, accord-
ing to the report. Additional offi-
cers helped subdue Wright,
who was arrested without fur-
ther incident, police said.
Cory Lee Wright, 23, of
Reeds, Mo., is charged with pos-
session of less than 20 grams of
marijuana and resisting arrest
without violence.

He was ordered to pay

Johnson was accused of

He also allegedly used
$1,111 of association money

AARP says Florida


lags in senior care


ST. PETERSBURG Florida
is still near the bottom on a first-
ever scorecard by AARP that
ranks states on how well they
provide long-term health care
for seniors and people with dis-
abilities. Florida is number 41
overall and, in some subcate-
gories, the state ranks even
lower.
At AARP Florida, Jessyca
Sosa says Floi'idians should not
expect the long-term care score
to improve in the coming years.
"And it's also very clear that
the average person, the middle-
class family, in no way, shape
or form can afford to pay for
the type of costs that they face
under our current system."
Sosa is AARP's southeast
regional spokesperson. At the
other end of the scorecard, but
still not encouraging, she notes
that Florida has the fifth highest
nursing staff turnover of any
state.
The report, Raising


Expectations: A State Scorecard
on Longl-Term Service-s and
Supports for Older Adults,-
People with Physical
Disabilities, and Family
Caregivers, covers four areas:
affordability and accessibility,
choice of setting, quality of care
and .support for family care-
givers. Florida ranks 44th in
terms of providing seniors a
choice of where to receive their
care, with nursing homes often
the only option. Sosa would like
to see improvement here, as
well.
"You know, the fact is, is that
most people, if given a prefer-
ence, would prefer not to have
to go to a nursing facility. They
want services in their homes
and communities."
Home or community-based
care is also less expensive than
nursing home care, adds Sosa,
which is another reason for the
trend away from institutional
care.
The scorecard is online at
aarp.org.

Seniors vs Crime
A Specal Prqje~toftherFlorida AroarrreviCex




Taxman cometh:


Beware scams


Along with our pleasant
spring-like weather, tax time
has arrived. If you are
searching for someone to
prepare your return, Seniors
vs. Crime wants you to be
careful to avoid a tax prepa-
ration scammer. There is no
shortage of dirty tricks
scammers will play on con-
sumers when tax season
rolls around.
To digress slightly, even
those of us who are fairly
intelligent and use the
TurboTax software to guide
us through preparing our tax
returns can make a mistake.
When the 75th and current
Secretary of the Treasury
Timothy Geithner spoke at
his 2009 confirmation hear-
ing, he testified that for the
2001-4 years he had used
TurboTax to prepare his
returns. Unfortunately, he
incorrectly reported his self-
employment taxes. An IRS
audit discovered the error
and Geithner ended up pay-
ing $42,702 in back taxes to
the government.
Our personal suggestion
is that you find a reputable
tax preparer to do your state
and federal tax returns. If
you do choose to do that
make sure to first check out
his or her credentials. With
tax talk playing a prominent
role in this year's presiden-
tial election, we will be con-
stantly reminded of the
importance of paying our fair
share. Find tie name of a
trustworthy professional to
prepare your returns by ask-
ing fellow employees, rela-
tives or neighbors.
Here are some useful tips
to help you select the right
representative to prepare
your taxes:
1. Although some good
preparers work from their
home, scammers tend .to
work from home too because
ill's harder for them to be
traced. The tax preparation' ,
software they use is usually
bought at a retail store and
when the return is printed
out and mailed in, it appears
as if it was filed by the actual
taxpayer. The return states
that it was self-prepared,
which makes it.difficult to
hold the preparer account-
able by law.
2. Scammers like to prey
on the public's fear of the
taxman. If you get an email
or letter offering tax prepara-
tion services, beware of ones
with the IRS logo attached
that looks like a bad cut and
paste job.
3. If your preparer asks
you to inflate your charitable
deductions and you are pay-
ing him a percentage of your
refund, drop him like a hot
potato. Tllis trick is similar to
inflating your business
expenses if you are self-
employed to get a larger
business deduction. The IRS.
i1 looking for these ruses. It
may take them a few years to
catch up with you but it's not
worth taking the chance.


4. Not asking for paper-
work or promising a refund
without looking at all your
back-up documentation is
-another red flag. A legitimate
tax preparer will want to see
your W-2 form, children's
Social Security numbers,
income from investments,
donations, pay stubs and
other employment data.
You also need to be vigi-
lant about individuals that
represent themselves as IRS
employees or claim the IRS
owes you a larger refund.
The scammers will email you
and ask you to send your
personal information to a
link in their email. Do not
click on a link that will allow
-a scamnmer to download mal-
ware onto your computer.
Malware is malicious soft-
ware that can install pro-
grams on your
computer to steal your identi-
ty and access your financial
accounts.
The IRS prefers to contact
you by the U.S. Postal
Service, not by email or tele-
phone. If you get a phone
call from someone claiming
to be an IRS agent just hang
up the phone (besides that
will make you feel good).
And the IRS will never show
up at your door unan-
nounced. Call the police if a
stranger rings your doorbell,
shows "credentials" and tells
you they want to discuss an
audit. The Fernandina Beach
Police Department tele-
phone number is 277-7342
(at the recording press 1 or
0). The Nassau County
Sheriff's Office dispatch tele-
phone number is 225-5174.
Other resources for you
to use if you suspect tax or
tax preparation fraud are the
IRS website: www.irs.gov or
call 1(800) 829-0433. If you
receive an email that pur- .
ports to be frori the IRS and
requests a response, report
it to phishing@irs.gov.
Remember, the IRS does
not initiate contact with
taxpayers by e-mail or by
any social media tool to
request your personal or
financial information. If you
have lost money in an IRS-
related incident, you should
file a complaint with the
Federal Trade Commission
through their Complaint
Assistant.

cial project of the Florida

Department. Our services are

'Pilgrim' looks forward to 93


S EAT} ER A PERRY
\e-zs Leader
L ookng forward to
celebrating his 93rd
birthday on March
10. Harry Shuford
ha-. the distinction of being
the only member of Yulee
Moose Lodge #2352 to have
earned the highest degree
that can be bestowed on a
member.
'The Pilgrim degree is
awarded to those who have
displayed dedication, commit-
ment and outstanding service
to their lodge.
Shuford has been part of
many Moose service projects
including Adopt-A-Mile, com-
modity delivery and dona-
tions to Pepper tree Village.
A Moose member since
1989, Shuford says the best
part of belonging to the
Lodge is the fellowship. But
he also likes knowing his con-
tributions assist seniors at
Moosehaven, the 72-acre
retirement village in Orange
Park and Mooseheart, the
1,000-acre school and village
for children in need in
Chicago.
Another important item
Shuford wears is a special
Moose ring signifying that he
has brought 100 members
into the Lodge.
"If I get to 200, they'd put
a diamond in it but I probably
won't live that long," he
laughed.
Shuford is a Navy Combat
Veteran of World War II. He
served in the Pacific Theater
and was awarded the
Distinguished Flying Cross
and a number of other cita-
tions for bravery and merito-
rious service.
"I was recalled by the
Navy during the Korean con-
flict where I served in the
Mediterranean tracking
Russian submarines," he
said.
One of the more interest-
ing kudos he's received came
as a surprise.
While meeting up with
some of his former World
War II buddies in Kentucky
in 2003, the group was intro-
duced to Gov. Ernie Fletcher,
who told them that because

of their contribution during
the war, he was going to
make them all Kentucky
Colonels-
-So he had us all raise our
right hand and he swore us
into the Honorable Order of
Kentucky Colonels So I'm a
card-carrying Kentucky
Colonel." said Shuford.
Retiring from Mayport
Naval Station in 1987 after 30
years. his last position as nire
chief. Shuford didn't stay
home long before seeking
employment again.
He used to garden and go
fishing until his doctor cur-
tailed those activities because
of skin cancer.
"1 loafed for about a year
but you can only paint the
house so many times and 1
was running out of things to
do," said Shuford, adding that
his late wife told him if he
didn't find something to do,
he was going to drive them
both crazy.
Through acquaintances,
he heard of an opening with
the Jacksonville Sheriffs
Office and he has been
employed there for 34 years.
He is a senior bailiff and he
thoroughly enjoys working at
the court
"People are there doing
their civic duty and you want
to make it as comfortable and
pleasurable for them as you
can."
The Columbia, S.C., native
has lived in Yulee 33 years.
He enjoys spending time with
his "best half," Charlotte
Graves, daughters Barbara
and Helen, his six grandchil-
dren and his great-grandchil-
dren. Shuford also had anoth-
er daughter, Joyce, who
passed away.
In addition to his Moose
membership, Shuford also
belongs to the VFW Post
4351 in Fernandina Beach.

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 wheel-
chairs along with their families and friends,
will make a two-mile trek in The Walk to
Defeat ALS, hoping their steps will make a dif-
ference for ALS patients living in the
Jacksonville area. Many who walk have a
loved one who is still fighting the deadly dis-
ease. Others walk in rnemory 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 walk-
ing 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 mil-
lion 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.

am. One of the first things that we need to learn when we get ready to tee off is
-. to have the proper ball position. More tlhn half the time, the ball is not lined
'j up with our body properly, resulting in an errant drive. For every inch that the
ball is teed up too far back in your stance, it puts the flight of the ball some
15-20 yards off of your intended line. It is almost a universal rule that the ball
Sf should be close to even with the tip of your front shoulder. This will allow the
dubface to make a full rotation through the bali maximizing your distance, accuracy and
consistency. Place the ball in line with your front heel and make sure that the heels of your
feet are shoulder width apart.

OUTDOORS


424 boats enter sheepshead tournament


The Jacksonville
Offshore Fishing
Club held its 11th
annual El Cheapco
Sheepshead Tournament
Saturday with outstanding
success. Some 424 boats
entered the popular event.
Tournament Director
Frank Joura extended the
payout to 20 places with the
additional teams entering the
event. There were also 116
junior anglers entered in the
tournament. The event was
staged from Mayport, where
tournament fishermen
weighed in their catches,
receive-d valuable prizes and
enjoyed a fresh fried seafood
dinner with delicious
sheepshead heading the
menu.
It took a 10.1-pound
sh.-eepshead to take home the
top prize, a 2012 Carolina
Skiff outfitted with a 75hp
Mercury four-stroke out-
board and loaded on a Magic
Tilt trailer. Steven Austin was
the lucky winner.
David Dry took top junior
angler honors with his 8.3-
pound sheepshead.
Local charter captain Allen
Mills fished with his son
Travis and nephew Morgan
Sutton.
"We fished mainly around
the south end of Amelia
Island, including the Shave
Bridge and a few of the deep
water boat docks that typicair
ly hold big sheepshead,"
Mills said. "We had a lot of
action while fishing with
barbed fiddler crabs close to
barnacle-clad pilings and
rocks. Our largest
sheepshead was caught by
Morgan, who actually placed
ninth in the junior angler cat-
egory."
Sutlon's big sheepshead
weighed 6.5 pounds.
"We fished aboard Jerry
Foster's 25-foot Parker fishing
boat," Capt. Tony Peeples
said. "We had plans on run-
ning out to KBY fish haven
and fishing close to the
sunken concrete, where his-
torically big sheepshead hold
during the winter fishing sea-
son..lHowever, a cold north-
easl wind kept us fishing
inshore.


-VWe
spent our
Tournament
day fishing
at the south
end of
Amelia
Island,
where the
OUTDOORS water was
OU OR clean and
.... reports of
Te ,y ZLacoss big
sheepshead
were coming from around
deep water boat docks and
bridge supports.
"At the end of our tourna-
ment day, we had better luck
catching tournament-size red-
fish in the 27-inch slot size
that gobbled up our barbed
fiddler crabs. We (lid catch
several nice sheepshead to
four pounds, but not one fell
in the tournament category."
Also on Saturday, Diane
Nelson was drifting a live
shrimp close to a dock piling
when a suspicious bite began
to unfold.
"My float went slowly
under and then slowly
returned to the surface as
though my live bait was
snagged on the bottom,"
Nelson said. "Then, my float
suspiciously began to bob up
and down as though a fish
deep below was attempting to
steal my live shrimp without
notice. Instinctively I reeled
in my slack fishing line and
set the hook into a nice size
fish."
Lacoss waited patiently for
Nelson's fish to tire and then
slid the landing net under her
catch, an eight-pound
sheepshead. Unfortunately,
Nelson was not signed up for
the tournament but certainly
pleased the rest of the fishing
party, which included hus-
band Norm Nelson and the
Kuntzes, Darmon and Rene.
Tournament fishermen
during the morning hours
found cool air temperatures
with plenty of cloud cover.
However, the afternoon 'fish-
ing hours found plenty of sun-
shine with warming air tem-
peratures.

Sheepshead fishing tourna-
ment continues to grow in

ent for getting people
cnthuised and getting the job
done, She called to connectl

a free spirited artist who
spends two months on Amelia
Island each winter. (Craham
wanted to do a portrait of our
two Yorkshire terriers,
Oglethorpe and MacGregor
(Ogie and Ma'). A doggie por-
trait? What's not to love? She
wanted to have a sample can-

asked her about her painting

"Painting is fun and a glori-

think, beautiful and share my


joy and delight in what I am

added with a stxarkle in her

about one memorable dog por-

behold, right in the ice cream

She has painted lots of

Governor visits Sunrise Rotary
The Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise welcomed James Chansler, Hotary Area Governor from the South Jacksonville Rotary Club, above left, to speak about international
projects. District 6970 currently manages 12 to 15 projects in areas such as Honduras, Haiti and Guatemala. Water and sanitation projects are most in demand as women and
children walk miles to find clean water and families spend 25 percent of their income for water. Due to lack of sanitation, 8,000 people die each day and 250 children die each
hour throughout the world, Chansler said. Through Rotary grants, individual clubs can organize, and implement a clean water project in these villages for as little as $5,000 or
as much as $50,000. Above right, Sunrise Rotary member Joyce .Jones gives the club her five-minute "Member Moment" talk on her background. Visit www.ameliaislandro-
