Man accused of


'lewd' photos,

MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
A 58-year-old Fernandina Beach
man has been arrested and charged
with a capital sex crime for having sex
with a 6-year-old girl.
Eugenio Valeriano was arrested
Thursday and charged with posses-
sion of child pornography after police
were tipped off by a drugstore techni-
cian who found "lewd photographs" of
the girl being developed. Bond was set
at $500,002.
Three additional charges of sexual
battery were filed Tuesday after police
determined that Valeriano had sexu-
ally molested the girl, which he ini-
tially denied.
"He would show her pornography
and have her.pose in the manner that


he showed her,"
Fernandina Beach
Police Chief James
Hurley said of the
photographs.
"He's also having
sex with her," he
said.
Hurley said the
Valeriano investigation is ongo-
ing and may involve
another victim and
suspect.
According to police reports,
Valeriano dropped off two black-and-
white disposable Kodak cameras at
CVS on Sadler Road on Feb. 28 to have

City begins to trim


trees near airport


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
The city has permitted the felling of
one pine tree at the Fernqndina Beach
Municipal Airport, plus the pruning of
up to 25 oak trees in an effort to
improve the safety of four runway
approaches.
In'an email to Sierra Club member
Judith Lane to address her concerns
about the pruning of those trees,
Interim City Manager Dave Lott said
the city had authorized the cutting of
one pine tree affecting Runway 4 and
the trimming of laurel and live oaks
to airport height requirements at three
other runways.
Lott wrote that a 2011 FDOTreport
stated trees in four areas were affect-
ing the safety of the approach path of
runways.
"The FDOT cited a number of run-


ways were affected by trees on the
approach path, that were too high for
the normal approach slope," Lott wrote.
"While there might be a grove of trees
of similar height, FDOT only cites the
singular 'controlling obstacle' in their
report"
The four trees that were consid-
ered "controlling obstacles" were a 35-
foot pine tree affecting Runway 4; a
60-foot oak at Runway 22; a 42-foot oak
at Runway 27; and a 47-foot oak at
Runway 31.
The airport requested four tree-
removal permits from the Community
Development Department before Lott
was appointed as interim city manag-
er, as a result of the FDOT report,
according to Lott.
Lott said he had met with Airport
Manager Richard Johnson and Steve

With his life hanging in the bal-
ance, Gregory David Larkin declined*
to tip the scales in his favor at a sen-
tencing hearing Thursday morning.
Convicted in January of killing his
parents in their Amelia Island home,
Larkin told Circuit Court Judge Robert
Foster he had no intention of filing a
sentencing memo, and the accompa-
nying mitigating factors, that may
spare his life at his March 15 sen-
tencing.
His standby counsel, Assistant
Public Defender Brian Morrissey, said
Larkin "has plenty of mitigating fac-
tors," but he won't present them to
the court.


Larkin, 38, faces a grim fate regard-
less of the case's outcome. At best,
he'll receive life imprisonment with-
out the possibility of parole. At worst,
he'll reap the death penalty.
The latter will be Larkin's fate if
the State Attorney's Office is heard.
Assistant State Attorney John
Kalinowski said his office filed a memo
outlining the aggravating factors: the
heinous, atrocious and cruel nature
of the murders of Dick and Myra
Larkin; and the joint nature of the
crimes.
.I', lei, will consider those factors,

I will always work to protect our tree
canopy while understanding that around
the airport there are controlling forces that
exceed the airport's authority.'
DAVE LOTT
INTERIM CITY MANAGER


TREES Continuedfrom IA
Cash, a certified arborist, on
Feb. 24 to discuss how to best
deal with the matter. After the
discussion., one tree removal
permit was issued by the city
for the pine tree at Runway 4,
according to I.ott.
In lieu of removing any
more trees, it was decided that
trimming or pruning, of live
oaks and laurel oaks was the
prudent thing to do, accord-
ing to Lott.
Two oak trees affecting
Runway 22, and a grove of
eight oak trees that "lined the
northern side of Hole 3 on the
west golf course," were sched-
uled to be pruned to neces-
sary height requirements,
according to Lott.
A grove of 12-15 oak trees
affecting Runway 27 are also
being pruned that "run as a
buffer between the golf course
aind the (Amelia Island) Park-
way," Lott wrote in an email.
'The height of this groveof
trees has also required ourair-
port under a FAA directive to
shut down PAPI (precision
approach path indicator) lights
for this approaches they are-
obscured by a tree canopy,"
Lott wrote.
Lott wrote that there was
some question as to whether
the trimming would kill at least
one tree, "but at this point we
are making the effort to retain
the tree and will continue to
monitor the situation."
Some "scraggly" trees
were also scheduled to be cut
down within a buffer area
between the Fernandina
Municipal Golf Course and the
Amelia Island Parkway,
according to Lott. Those trees
were small enough not to
require permits to cut them
down, he said.
An FDOT study was done

Jurors handed down that
suggestion despite concerns -
flimsy ones, Foster said from
forensic psychologist Dr.
William Meadows that Larkin
may have been concealing a
mental illness during one of
three separate evaluations to
determine whether he was
competent to represent him-
self.
Leading up to his trial-
Larkin dismissed several attor-
neys, claiming they were c61-
luding with the State Attor-
ney's Office to secure his
conviction, and' represented
himself in Nassau County
Circuit Court. .

March 1 to determine if there
are any additional hazards at
the airport, but according to
Lott, those results will not be
available for a few weeks.
"The city expects that
FDOT will identify additional
trees as safety obstacles and
the city will deal with that as
part of its longer tree mainte-
nance plan," Lott wrote.
The city's Airport Advisory
Commission has also author-
ized a $25,000 tree survey by
Passero Associates at the air-
port's approach and departure
zones, which should be done
by the end of March, Lott stat-
ed. The results of that survey
will be combined with the
FDOT report "as part of the
Overall management' plan,"
Lott stated.
"(Passero) is now in the
process of plotting all the dif-
ferent safety boundaries and
identifying the trees that will
be impacted," Lottwrote. "The
purpose of the survey is to
have a current record of tree
location an-d height in the air-
port so that all the safety haz-
ards can be identified and then
a management plan be devel-
oped."
"I will always work to pro-
tect our tree canopy while
understanding that around the
airport there are controlling
forces that exceed the airport's
authority," Lott wrote.
The city's original plan,
endorsed by the advisory com-
mission last summer, was to
deal with tree obstacles by
removing 10,084 trees on 188
acres of city property. The
trees would potentially have
brought $92,000 in revenue
after being sold' as pulpwood.
A plan to replace them with
smaller tree species would
have reduced the income to
the city. .,

tion, Morrissey expressed conw
cern that he might suffer from
"psychotic disturbances,"
prompting Foster to order the
evaluations. . '.
But during a cross-exami-
nation of Meadows Feb. 17,
Assistant State Attorney Wes
White revealed that Larkin had
no history of drug, alcohol or
sexual abuse in his family. Nor
was he prescribed medication
or seeking treatment for. any
psychological disorders. In all
he underwent three evalua-
tions, with two of the three doc-
tors finding him competent to
proceed.


County refunds ex-commissioner


GARRTI"I' PELICAN
News Leader
Nassau County Commis-
sioners voted 4-1 to refund an
appeal fee to a former commis-
sioner, but the move drew
resistance from Commissioner
Steve Kelley.
Citing concerns that refund-
ing a $200 fee to former com-
missioner Jimmy L Higginboth-
am of Callahan would set a
precedent inviting more
refunds,. Kelley opposed the
board's decision to grant it.
Kelley recalled the board's
Aug. 8 decision not to refund
residents Hubert and Christine
Clark a $1,000 fee for trans-
portation concurrency,. and
wondered whether Higginbo,
tham's refund warranted simi-
lar treatment.
"We already denied a pirevi-
ous petition their money back
and now we're in kind of a pre-

photographs of a young female"
once she developed the film.
Police were notified and the
photographs were seized.
Valeriano, described as a
regular customer, had left
his name and telephone num-
ber. ,
The police determined the
photographs to be of a young
female "depicting sexual con-
duct in the form of lewd exhi-
bition' of the genitals." One pho-
tograph depicted her looking
at the camera while on a bed
with her pubic area exposed
and legs spread. Another.
depicted her bending over at
the waist, looking away from
the camera, legs spread, with
her backside exposed.
The officer contacted the
Florida Abuse Hotline and a
state Department of Children
and Families investigator took
the girl for a forensic interview.
She said during her interview
that he took naked pictures of
her and showed her "naked


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
killed his parents with a bat
and 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.

carious position," Kelley con-
tended at the board meeting
Feb. 27.
County Manager Ted Selby
clarified that the Clarks' fee was
spent obtaining a traffic study
required for concurrency. "That
money came in and was spent
by the Northeast Regional
Transportation Council to con-
duct a traffic study necessary to
get that," he said.
A legal distinction between
the two cases was that in the
Clarks' case, their appeal was
heard and they lost, said
County Attorney David
Hallman. Higginbotham's, he
said, never was, but the leg-
islative decision came out in his
favor anyway regarding
whether a parcel of land was a
subdivision.
Pointing to concerns issu-
ing refunds would only invite
more requests for them,
Kelley suggested adding

The victim's mother identi-
fied Valeriano and told officers
that he was renting a.room in
her house. He was reportedly
employed at Beaches Unlimited
on Sadler Road.
Police said Valeriano admit-
ted to showing the victim
pornographic television shows
on the Playboy television
channel and then asking her to
pose like the women she saw.
He admitted to taking the
photos of the child but said
he never touched her, police
said.
But the child said she had

eral occasions, police said.

lowing refunds in future
instances.
"Would it not be appropri-
ate, if the decision making is
ours, that we modified or
amended that resolution to
specify that in the future that
these monies are not refund-
able?" he asked.
It is the board's prerogative
to modify any ordinance, said
Hallman.
The county attorney said,
"(Interim Growth Management
Director Peter King) brought
that matter to the Planning &
Zoning Board for a legislative
interpretation. Since they are
your local planning agency, he
sought their help. Because we
could not get the matter to the
Planning & Zoning Board
within the 30 days that
that citizen.had to file an appeal,
the citizen to protect his
appeal rights filed an appeal
*


and paid $200."
SThe Planning & Zoning
Board recommended a refund
of Higginbotham's fee, Hallman
added.
According to the minutes
from the Jan. 17 meeting of the
Planning & Zoning Board,
board members voted 9-2 (with
members fIennisJasinsky and
Jeff Gray dissenting) in favor
of approving the refund,
"At the will of this board,
(Hallman) will recommend to
the Board of County Cornmis-
sioners that they refund that
$200 appeal fee. 11 was moved

(Scott Murray) and unani-
mously carried to request that
the county attorney recom-
mend that the Board of County
Commissioners refund the

Higginbothamr," a summary of
the meeting's minutes said.

Inspectors exempted


from records laws


TALLAHASSEE The
Florida legislature has approved
a bill, sponsored by State Rep.
Janet H. Adkins, to expand those
public officials exempt from
pubic records laws.
HB 1089, which was
approved by the Florida Senate
on a 38 to 1 vote, expands the
current public record exemp-
tion for identification and loca-
tion information to include cur-
rent or former investigators or
inspectors of the Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation.
It provides for the added safe-
ty of current DBPR inspectors
and investigators by exempting
their home addresses, telephone
numbers and photographs from
public records. This bill helps
protect DBPR employees from
retaliation from individuals they
are inspecting or investigating
by exempting teir personal
information from public record,
Adkins said. The bill requires
the iiwestigator or inspector to
make reasonable attempts to
keep-their information private
before it would be exempted
fri-om public records.
HB 1089 also includes tax
collectors in the exemption
process, since these individuals
are responsible for revenue col-
lection and distribution.
"I was made aware of sever-
al incidents in which tax collec-
tors and their families were
threatened, and efforts were
made to break in to their


homes," said Adkins. "I was
happy that this bill could help
provide peace of mind to these
public servants when they go
home."
HB 1089 passed unanimous-
ly in the Florida House before it
was sent to the Florida Senate.
HB 1089 will now be sent to Gov.
Rick Scott to be signed into law.
The Florida House has
approved HB 903, an Adkins bill
.which provides charter public
schools with greater autonomy
regarding purchases made with
federal funds, while enabling the
sponsor to oversee the charter
school's compliance with state
and federal requirements.
The House also approved,
112-0, a bill to revise require-
ments relating to adoption. HB
1163, sponsored byAdkins, clar-
ifies the obligations of both the
biological parents of the child
and the licensed child-placing
agencies. HB 1163 requires the
biological father of the child, to
agree to certain provisions in
order to defend his rights and
interests. The bill amends the
process for terminating parental
rights.
One of the provisions of HB
1163 addresses the issue of sur-
rendered newborris who test
positive for drugs and/oralco-
hol. The legislation now stipu-
lates that newborns testing pos-
itive for drugs and/or alcohol
will be placed with a licensed
child-placing agency for the
Florida's "Safe Haven."

How many cars do we need?


For the town of Fernandina
Beach, it appears that 220 is a
lucky, or at least popular, num-
ber. It keeps showing up like a
hot number on a roulette
wheel.
The city has a workforce of
about 220 employees. And' it
has a fleet of some 220 vehi-
cles. At first spin, both seem
high for a city of only 11,000
residents that hasn't grown in
size or scope in years.
While a new city manager
and a revamped commission
attempt to balance the budget
(an exercise that has eluded
past commissions), they must
scrutinize spending and
expenses. And paying for
employees and vehicles are
two large expenditures.
While it is unpopular with
residents to increase taxes or
reduce services, city officials
can opt to do more with less. In
this way, they can preserve
services at less of a cost to
taxpayers.
Of the 220 vehicles,.only
half of them are cars and


V trucks. The
,, others are
utility trail-
ers, lawn-
S. mowing trac-
tors and
pumps, for
instance.
However,
STEVE'S they are
MAR(ET included in
PLACE the invento-
ry because
most of
Steve Nicklas them have
wheels, are
licensed and require servicing.
. The city police department
has the biggest inventory with
47 vehicles, most of which are
patrol cars. This is under-
standable. Of those, 29 are cat-
egorized as "take home" cars
and trucks.
. As many cities and coun-
ties scrape to save money, they
have reconsidered policies on
take-home municipal vehicles.
This can be viewed as a luxury
that has become unaffordable


- considering the upkeep, wear
and fuel.
With the city police depart-
ment, a recently adopted poli-
cy requires that officers live
within 10 miles of the city.
Therefore, it can provide a
deterrent to crime when
officers drive their cars
(during off hours) within the
city limits.
In other city departments,
, employees take home 13 addi-
tional cars. These include: util-
ities, 5 (2 of these are for on-
call duties); fire and rescue, 3;
maintenance, 3; recreation, 1;
and building and planning, 1.
In terms of total vehicles,
the maintenance department
has 53 (these include a variety
of uses); the utilities depart-
ment has 46; the golf depart-
ment has 31, fire and rescue
has 18; recreation has 12; and
the building and planning
department and the informa-
tion technology department
each have two cars.
Only a few of the city's vehi-
cles are new (within a year
old). Most of them are any-


where from four to 10 years
old, it appears from the inven-
tory. The police department
has nine cars or trucks that
are 2011 models, while fire and
rescue has one.
The utilities department
.has two 2011 cars and a new
Caterpillar "excavator." And
the golf department has five
2011 John Deere mowers to
trim.the greens, rough and fair-
way.
New-vehicle purchases are
probably the first items for city
officials to address. While
older vehicles require more
,servicing, they can also save
money over time (rather than
.buying new cars each year),
This is not only a sound
practice to adopt, it is a respon-
sible one.. Nobody said any-
thing about lucky.

Tax tips for

50+ taxpayers
The good news this year
is that you've got a col)le of
extra days. Rather tlhan filing
your taxes by April 15, the
IRS tax filing deadline is
Tuesday. April 17.
Buttl hat's not the only
change. Before filing your
taxes, AARP has a few tips
that older taxpayers may be
able to use to cut taxes and to
gain a bigger refund.
Tax tips for older taxpay-
ers: I
If you turned 65 before
Jan 1, 2012, you're eligible to
take a higher than normal
standard deduction: Single
$7,250; married $13,9)0;: head
of household ,9,950; qualitfy-
ing widow/widower $12,750.
If your adjusted gross
income, untaxed interest and
half your Social Sequrity ben-
efit add up to less than
$25,000 ($32,000 if married
and filing jointly or qualifying
widow), you'll pay no taxes
on your Social Security
inlcomlle.
If you're in a tax brack-
et of 15 percent or lower,
you'll pay no federal taxes oni
long-term capital gains you
racked up during the year.
If you work while paying
a home health aide to take
care of your spouse or
dependent, you may be able
to claim a credit of up to
$3,000 in dependent (or
spouse) care expenses.

Controlling leaders:


Are they effective?


One of the major issues
leaders struggle with is how
Much control to exert over the
company, their team and any
project. Some of the most suc-
cessful companies and teams
have had leaders who were
famous for their hands-on
styles. If you read the recent
bestseller about Steven Jobs,
who probably is the most suc-
cessful business person of ourt
generation, it is obvious that
when a new product was
developed he tried to control
every aspect, especially
design.
On the other side of the
ledger we note that during the
financial crises two of the
companies that imploded,
Bear Stearns and AIG, had for
years been run very profitably
by extremely controlling lead-
ers. These leaders' main focus
wits controlling and reducing
costs. It was reported that
when an a AIG executive flew
back from China or Japan they
were expected to immediately
report to the office and, if they
did not, they might be out of a
job. However, when these
leaders either retired, as was
the case with Beatr Stearns, or
were forced out, as was the
case with AIG, the new leader
failed.
Standard Brands had one
of the most controlling CEOs
until he was overthrown in
1976. Henry Weigl, the
Standard Brands CEO for 20-
plus years, became legendary
for his need to control costs
and for his mean behavior. A
major leadership consultant,
Harry Levinson, rated Weigl
one of the five meanest lead-
ers in the free world before he
was deposed. Two of Weigl's
competitors for this dubious
honor, according to Levinson,
were Richard Nixon and
Moshe Dayan.
At one point Weigl put
locks on phones in the corpo-
rate offices (they were still
using rotary phones), believ-
ing that the corporate man-
agers were making many
unnecessary phone calls. His
position was that if the issue
was really important, the
other party would call us.
While at some point I
became a Henry Weigl
favorite because of some
negotiating successes, my
first encounter was depress-

been recruit-
ed to
Standard
Brands from
P Ballantine
and Sons
and offered
the grand
salary of
$24,000.
Unfortunat-
ely I didn't
realize until
after I
reported
that Henry


had to approve any salary
over $22,500. So when I
received my first paycheck it
was based on,the lower salary.
Henry's demise finally
came because he kept firing
the executives who were list-
ed as his replacement on the
board's succession chart.
After he went to the board for
the fifth time, they decided to
interview the next candidate.
This individual, a well-respect-
ed executive who had recently
joined Standard Brands from
GE, advised the board that he
wasn't interested, as no one
could survive under Henry.
So why do some control-
ling leaders win and others
end up'destroying the organi-
zation? The key is how they
wield this control. Demanding
leaders who insist on excel-
lence, but also bring in strong,
talented executives to success-
fully run specific area<. s,.'emm
to come out on top. Leaders
who believe they are experts
ii all areas and meddle in all
aspects of the business usual-
ly end up failing. However,
even when, as in the case of
Bear Stearns and AIG, these
leaders achieve success, once
they leave the business invari-
ably fails. The reason is over-
controlling leaders also
become arrogant and abusive.
Therefore, no successor is
ever developed as really tal-
ented, and confident execu-
tives leave and only executives
without backbone or fortitude
remain.
In reading about Steve
Jobs, it seems during his first
run at Apple his drive for per-
fection led to his need to con-
trol every aslxpect of the busi-
ness and abuse anyone who
disagreed. When he finally
was fired there was no one

S6A WEDNESDAY. MARCH 7,2012/News-Leader


OPINION a




Neighbors complain about aerobatics box


I am writing in response to the recentt city
commission decision on the Aerobatic Practice
Area ("City OKs aerobatics box," Feb. 24), and
the letters to the editor (Feb. 24 and Feb. 29).
Ms. (Barbara) Farnsworth's view is not "so
slanted" as they would have you believe, and is
shared by many in the vicinity of the airport.
Local residents circulated a petition opposing
the Aerobatics Practice Area back in July 2008,
and gathered well over 100 signatures of resi-
dents in the area. Copies of that petition were
given to the commissioners and the FAA in
Orlando. The city commission at that time
opposed the renewal of the. practice area, and I
was told by an FAA official in Orlando that due
to our petition and the city commission recom-
mendation the FAA would n6t renew the cer-
tificate when they reviewed the application.
Well, it appears that we were misled by the
FAA back then, but that does not mean that we
(and.the city commission) should give up on
wour efforts. The least we can do is go on public
record (again) as opposing the current location
of the practice area; if the FAA chooses to ignore
our wishes again that is out of our control. Our
only recourse then would be to take our corn-
plaints to our state and federal representatives to
see if they could bring pressure on the FAA to
acknowledge our issues. But if we do not pub-
licly/officially oppose the practice area now there
is probably very little chance that the FAA will
deny renewal of the certificate, and we would not
have much support in taking our complaints fur-
ther.
While it is true that the practice area is theo-
retically west of the airport, pilots using the box
do not always stay within the confines of that box
while doing their maneuvers (as local resident
Robert Prager testified to at the meeting). On
many occasions I have observed them straying
away from the box on the west side of the airport.
Even when practicing within the box, the noise
generated by their aircraft is not restricted to the
area under or directly adjacent to the box. The
noise from these aircraft can be heard from quite
a "distance away, as many neighborhoods (like
mine) not directly adjacent to the airport can
attest.
In response to Commissioner (Sarah)
Pelican's statement that"... plane noise should
be expected when living near .an airport," my


response is that plane noise from normal air-
port operations should be expected when living
near an airport. We are not objecting to the stan-
dard noise created by normal takeoffs and land-
ings, pilots practicing touch-and-go's, etc. That
should be expected and no one purchasing a
home in the vicinity of the airport or the flight pat-
terns has much justification to complain about'
those activities. However, aerobatic practices
can in no way be considered normal airport activ-
ity. First, the practice activity goes on for hours
at a time (versus the more occasional takeoffs
and landings which last for a few seconds), and
several of the planes used for aerobatic maneu-
vers are much more high-powered/noisy then
the normal prop aircraft. It is this activity that we
are objecting to and should not have to endure.
We are not opposed to the existence of an
Aerobatic Practice Area, it is the location of that
area that we have issue with. The pilots do need
an area where they can practice and hone their
skills. Their activities may indeed bring revenue
into the local businesses and city coffers.
However, as the owner of the Amelia River Golf
Club testified, the noise created is detrimental to
his marketing efforts to attract business. The
loss in potential golf club revenue detracts from
the financial benefits of having the practice area.
Mr. (Richard) Johnson, the airport manager,
stated that there are two possible alternate sites
.for the box and that it would cost $2,850 for a con-
sultant to research and evaluate those sites. It
seems like it would be money well spent to pur-.
sue that avenue, as it could end up being a win-
win situation for the pilots and the local home-
owners and golf club. Maybe the city
. commission, the businesses at the airport, the
golf club and Amelia Island Aerobatics can come
up with a way to fund that study.
Finally, we have to address the issue of the
three commissioners ignoring the wishes of a
large number of their constituents. Charles
Corbett and Sarah Pelican were recently elected
in large part due to their promises to listen to the
people. Apparently those promises were just
regarding Forward Fernandina, and nothing
else. I would suggest that come election time res-
idents living in the vicinity of the airport remem-
ber the names of the three commissioners who
voted to OK the aerobatics box, and vote accord-
ingly. Maybe we could then get elected repre-


sentatives who will actually listen to their con-
stituents. Perhaps the local stunt pilots will help
us out by conducting their practices for a few
days before the election.

Peaceful Island life
The News-Leader has published numerous
articles and opinions regarding the renewal of the
Aerobatic Practice Area located west of the
Fernandina Beach airport.
First, I am responding to clarify the inaccurate
portrayal that I am solely in favor of the APA
being closed. The truth is that I represent hun-
dreds of citizens who live on Amelia Island, not
just in Parkway North, who have circulated peti-
tions, written letters and made phone calls to
voice their opposition to the aerobatic box's
renewal. This is an island-wide issue, not just
my personal "complaint" about noise.
Second, I accept that (letter writers) attempt-
ed to discredit me. I chose to be the public voice
of this citizen group and, thus, have been the tar-
get of a few criticisms. However, he and othei's
who have directed their seething comnrents at
me should also understand that I ain an avid
supporter of our island's airport and aviation, in
general.
In fact, I have volunteered many hours and
contributed my business marketing expertise
to the. city's Airport Evaluation Advisory
Committee, which was tasked with researching
and evaluating airport governance models for our
airport. Serving on the AEAC has been quite
interesting and I am optimistic our airport will
benefit from the committee's recommendations.
In conclusion, I have tremendous respect for
Keoki Gray and the aerobatic pilots who use the
aerobatic box to practice their skills. If the FAA
does indeed renew the APA, I am confident he
and the APA users will be good neighbors and,
likewise, respect the large group of nearby citi-
zens who just want to enjoy their peaceful, pic-
turesque island life.

Awhile back I had some friends and family in
town and we went to one of the local restaurants
with an. outside patio. We just sat down, ordered
our drinks and were enjoying the marsh view
when it began: the loud persistent droning of the
aircraft in the box. My out-of-town guest com-
mented on how the constant droning noise ruins
a fabulous view and we left, without ordering.
The business lost a couple hundred dollars in
revenue (they have since gone bankrupt and a
third restaurant is trying the location) and the
waitress received a 20 percent tip-on $21 instead
of $210 if we would have actually stayed and
ordered. It was a lose-lose.
Without much opportunity for public input
the city voted 3-2 not to oppose renewal of a waiv-
er for an Aerobatic Practice Area west of

batics box," Feb. 24). First let me thank Mayor
(Arlene) Filkoff and Tim Poynter for their support
of local residents, churches and businesses in
their votes to oppose the droning noise of the
Aerobatic Practice Area.
Recent commission addition Pelican said "she
would not vote against renewing the APA, adding
that plane noise should be expected when living
near an airport." Really? That's your criteria for
your vote? I should expect it? Have you ever
heard a stunt plane? Your analogy is like you
approving a wavier that would allow five guys to
run their, dragsters down my road seven days a
week, as they feel like it, and telling me I live on
a road so I should expect it?
It would seem three of the city's commis-
, sioners still do not understand who they are sup-
posed to represent Local residents say they don't
want the noise. Churches say they don't want
the noise. Businesses oppose it yet somehow
three city commissioners are beholden to a few
pilots instead of.their local voters?.Why? Do we
need to remind them in November they are here
for us and not the other way around?
Besides the negative impact to the neighbor-
hoods, businesses and churches is the city aware
they have alreadyapproved use of that same air-
space for Navy -helicopter operations. In 2007,
the city also approved a five-year Letter of
Agreement with NAS Mayport and NAS Jax with
the city of-Fernandina Beach Resolution 2007-204.
This resolution requires military helicopters prac-
ticing at Fernandina to fly down the river and
enter the airport from the west. The helicopter
landing area is directly in the APA. This agree-
ment has the eastern side of the field labeled as
a "no fly zone." So now the city is on record
approving helicopters and stunt planes using the
same area at the same time.
If our representative will not act what can we
the citizens do?
An aerobatic practice area is a place where the
FAA provides a "waiver" using their FAA Form
7711-1 so a pilot may "practice aerobatic maneu,
vers below an altitude of 1,500 feet above ground
level." Environmental impacts are covered by
the FAA's Environmental Information Documen-
Station (EID) for Proposed Aerobatic Practice
Areas..
The Environmental Information Documenta-
tion (EID) does have a vehicle for citizens to
record their opposition to the proposed box if
they make those concerns known to the FAA. If
you complain in writing via fax to the FAA's FSDO
office they must include those complaints on the
EID.
FSDO can be contacted at:

ie sea

tax dollars flowing in. Property values have
taken a hit. A property that generates a net
cash flow and is appreciating means more tax
dollars. Do the math.
An attitude of "I live here-year round, so
these outsiders should go to a motel" is a bit
parochial (restricted or narrow in scope) and
exclusionary. Ron is proud of the numerous
beach access points, as he should be.
However, preventing people from staying on
the beach in a rented home is restricting
access. Should only someone that can afford
to own a fine home on the beach be allowed to
enjoy it?
Is it jealous envy, the thought that someone
might be "making money" and they are "from
away"? Again, it gets back to money. Most
owners, renting or not, would be lucky to have
a little cash left over after paying for city and
county property taxes, electricity, water,
garbage pickup and maintenance.
Out of town money spent here on all man-
ner of things afid services brings in more
money for the city as well. Allowing short-term
rentals with some regulation could be a new
revenue source. Perhaps a one-time short-
term rental fee paid directly to the city, a busi-
ness license, sales tax, to name a few. Seems a
lot simpler than collecting quarters in a park-
ing meter. The heart of the community
requires cash flow to keep pumping arid
improve things, like our waterfront, that
tourists and locals alike enjoy.

On February 13 of this.year I
attended the county commission meet-
ing and spoke about my disappoint-
ment that we were no longer going to
have a volunteer fire station on Miner
Road. The volunteers were being evict-
ed and had to vacate the building effec-
tive Feb. 17, according to a letter
County Manager Ted Selby wrote to
Joe King, volunteer fire chief. He
apparently felt the building could -be
put to better use. These volunteers
had been at this building since it was
built. Commissioner Stacy Johnson
arranged to have Fire Chief Matthew
Graves speak with me about myscon-
cerns. We had a really nice discussion
in the hallway and I relayed my con-
cern about the lack of fire hydrants
in our area and the need for a fire sta-
ti6n. I came away from our conversa-
tion feeling that perhaps something
good was going to come from all this.
However, on Saturday morning the
parking lot at the former fire station
was turned into a salvage yard. There
were at least a dozen junk cars parked
there: many of them with no wheels.,
There was also'a large motor home
parked there with a-Harley Davidson
trailer attached, which had been
parked there since Friday morning.
As of 8 Sunday night, they were still
there. I've even been contacted by sev-
eral of my neighbors about this to ask
if I knew anything about it
We now have gone from having a
volunteer fire station on property
which was actually donated to the coun-
ty for a park, according to the deed on
file, to using the parking lot to store
junk cars. How can this be a better
use? /

Heart of our community
I would like to thank Mr. Ron Sapp
for his "The heart of our community"
column (Feb. 29). He is correct when
he states that it is a bad idea to allow
commercial intrusion into areas that
are zoned for residential homes. I
understand that we are all coping with
economic difficulties. My husband and
I own two homes that are located in
residentially zoned developments. We
live in one of them year-round, and


have been fortunate in having long-
term renters in the other. The econo-
my was booming when we made our
investment in real estate here in
Nassau County. Now that property val-
ues have declined, "but the interest
rate on our loan has not," it would be
wonderful to make some extra cash by
turning one of our houses into a short-
term vacation-rental; but we knew that
was not an option when we purchased
the properties.
We chose to invest in developments
thatwere residentially zoned because
it was a way of protecting our proper-
ty and the value of it I have never met
a landlord who has not had problems
with damage done to their property by
tenants; even long-term tenants. Short-
term rentals can be a nightmare for
landlords, especially absentee land-
lords, and they definitely do nothing
for their neighbors' rights to peaceful
enjoyment of their own property. My
neighbors and I know this for a fact
More than once during peak rental
seasons we have had many sleepless
nights due to the partying of young
adults carousing till dawn in a rental
'hbome that wa&,illegallheased to'them,.
I lam confused as to why this issue
keeps rearing its ugly head. I thought
that existing "state law" makes it ille-
gal to change the rules relating.to
short-term rentals unless it affects all
existing lots in our county that are
presently zoned against short-term
rentals. Perhaps my interpretation of
the law is incorrect.

Hitandrun
My husband and I recently visited
your beautiful island. With one excep-
tion every person we met was quite
welcoming. However, on Feb. 29 we
were bicycling on South Fletcher
Avenue just north of Seaside Park.
Awoman driving a black van pulled
from a driveway. The van stopped, and
as we progressed in front of the vehi-
cle, the driver hit the gas. My hus-
band had the tire of his bicycle hit. I
screamed and jumped from my bike
causing a large bruise on my leg. We
are both in our 70's. The scream got
the driver's attention and she again
stopped.
She put her window down, yelled

something rather unkindly and took
off. She did not inquire if we were all
right, did not have any concern for
the fact that she had actually hit
one of us (thankfully my husband was
unharmed) and almost hit the second.
Perhaps it should be called to the
attention of.drivers on Amelia that
pedestrians do have right of way and
leaving the scene of an accident is "hit
and run."

thank you for a wonderful week with

Gasprices
Public outrage is intense and polit-
ical fingerprinting is rampant about
the steep increase in the price ofgaso-


line. It is tempting to blame the ener-
gy industry for price-gouging ,or to
assign the cause to the turmoil of the
Middle.East.
But the facts are that the primary
factor is the perfectly legal and unre-
strained speculation in oil futures in
financial markets. As of Feb. 21, 340
million barrels of crude oil enough
to supply Western Europe for a year -
were held hostage by speculators who
-were betting that the price would go
even higher. The trading in the futures
market is not about anyone actually
buying the oil. It is a bidding system
for the privilege of buying at a certain
price in the future that effectively takes
the oil off the real market.
Financial experts estimate that
some $23 of the current $100-plus per
barrel crude price is due to specula-
tion. That equates to about 56 cents


per gallon of gasoline.
Legislation is stuck in committee in
our deadlocked Congress that would
ease this abuse, simply by reinstating
limits on the amount of oil any
one speculator can control. Such reg-
ulation existed prior to 2000 but was
eliminated in the welter of ill-advised
deregulation that also contributed to
the inflation and crash of housing val-
ues.
Every citizen ought to demand that
the Senate and the House cease par-
tisan bickering long enough to pass
the legislation embodied in S. 1598
and H.R. 3006. Then the U.S. free mar-
ket can operate to allow prices to
reflect supply and demand, not finan-
cial guesswork and speculator prof-
its.

Impact fees going out, taxes going up


L ast spring I warned that the Nassau
County Commission was in the
process of transferring the cost.of new
infrastructure and schools required
by new development to existing taxpayers
("Taxpayers on hook for new city" May 16,
2011). I wrote at the time "a county task force
headed by Commissioner Danny Leeper and
comprised of mostly developers, real estate
agents and their lawyers has been'laying the
groundwork for a permanent elimination of
impact fees. Impact fees are charged to new
development tohelp cover the cost of new

infrastructure required by the development....
The task force is but a fig leaf to give the coun-
ty commission a basis for permanently doing
away with the fees, which it is expected to do
later this year"
The following week a member of the task
force, Pat Keogh, responded that I was totally
wrong and "there has been no suggestion that
the group's work will lead to the permanent
elimination of impact fees." :
As I predicted, the task force voted 9-1 to
eliminate impact fees. Not only that, but on
Dec. 12, while most of us were preparing for
the holidays, the County Commission passed a
resolution (2011-190) that sets the stage for
county-wide tax assessments for the very
infrastructure improvements for which impact
fees were designed to pay.
And in January the commission began the
process of doing away with school impact fees.
This means county taxpayers will have to
brace themselves for an increase in the school
property tax as well.
The back story is this: Some years ago the
Florida Legislature voted to require counties
and cities to charge impact fees on all new res-
idential development to pay for new roads,
water and drainage facilities, recreation and
schools that would be required by the new
homes. This makes sense. New residents
should help pay the cost of new infrastructure
so the total burden is not put on existing tax-
payers. I)cal governments were to determine
how much those impact fees should be.
Nassau established two fees, one for infra-


structure and one for schools.
Impact fees.have been a source of dispute
ever since. A study commissioned by Nassau
some six years ago showed that our impact
fees should be twice what they were to meet,
projected needs. For the past four years
Nassau has had a moratorium on infrastruc-
ture impact fees in order to stimulate home
construction. But as we have seen home con-
struction has not been stimulated. Studies
have repeatedly shown that the imposition of
impact fees has no impact on home construc-
tion; new development is stimulated by
demand.
Last year, with the state government firmly
in developers' control, the legislature made
impact fees optional. Nassau formed its task
force, comprised of the very people opposed
to impact fees: developers and their fellow
travelers. One task force member (the sole
person not aligned with the development com-.
munity) provided considerable reports and
studies to show why impact fees should be
retained. Regardless, the task force recom-
mended what it was expected to recommend,
that impact fees be permanently eliminated.
With this recommendation providing politi-
cal support, the commission passed a resolu-
tion in December that will permit county gov-
ernment, beginning in November 2012, to tax
the public for road construction and road
repaving, water and wastewater facilities,
stormwater management, parks and recre-
ation facilities and other services, many of
which were supposed to be covered by the


infrastructure impact fees. This tax will come
in the form of special assessments. This will
enable the county to increase its revenues
without changing its millage rate. According to
the resolution, the county will be collecting
these special assessments annually "in the
same manner as provided for ad valorem
(property) taxes."
This means when we receive our tax bill at
the end of this year, there will be a new line for
assessments.
The second shoe was.dropped in late
January. The county commission brought to
the school board its plan to eliminate school
impact fees. '
Between the rapid decline of funding from
local taxes and diminished state contributions,
impact fees remain the school board's most
reliable source of revenue, according to
School Superintendent John Ruis.
School districts don't have the independent
authority to impose impact fees. They can
only be enacted by county government. The
county commission can eliminate school
impact fees regardless of what the school
board wants.
At least one county commissioner, Steve
Kelley, understands how eliminating school
impact fees will hurt. At the January meeting
he is reported to have said, "We're sure going
to be cutting their knees out from under
them."
Bottom line: Nassau County taxpayers, get
out your checkbooks. Your tax burden is
going to get heavier!








WEDNESDAY. MARCH 7,2012 NEWS News-Leader


Around the bend


T here's a walk I can
take only at very
low tide, and it's not
often that low tide
coincides with dawn, my
usual walking time, on a day
that is not too chilly, windy or
otherwise wintery to embark
on. In winter, though, the
dawn departure time is not
often so. attractive, and the
weather warms up a bit later.
In this case, any time goes, as
long as the tide is low and I've
got energy to burn.
At this point, I have done a
lot of beach walking, so I have,
no problem with the 6- or 7-
mile roundtrip that it entails
but if you want to try it your-
self, you can take a shortcut.
What I do is park at the North
End Beach Access in
Fernandina Beach, on North
Tarpon Road, and walk all the
way to the fort in Fort Clinch
State Park and back again.
But, easier by far is to park at
one of the fishermen's park-
ing areas inside the state
park, near the fort and you
are there.
At low tide the rock jetties
behind the fort are visible,
and the mud between these
rocky outcrops is full of a dif-
ferent sort of life than is
found elsewhere along our
shoreline. The jetties them-
selves are crusted with sea
life, in shades of yellow and
orange. In the mud, the bub-
bles of hidden clams and
other mollusks reveal an
invisible world of life worth
. contemplating. When the tide
returns again and these
muddy patches are sub-
merged, flounders and other


mollusk-eat-
ing fish
come in to
feast, a fact
well known
to local fish-
ermen who
plan their
trips at
incoming
WILD tide to catch
WAYS them in the
... act.
But it's
Pat not really
Foster-Turley the mud
between the
jetties that inspires me; it's
the low tide all the way along
the river heading toward the
fishing pier that I'm eager to
greet. The sand/mud sub-
strate along this stretch is
generally soft and squishy -
too soft for my plantar-fasci-
itis-afflicted feet to walk very.
far in on most days. But at low
tide, I can walk this stretch of
beach with impunity, walking
on the now-revealed harder.
packed sand close to the
water's edge.
Along this part of our
coast I find all kinds of "treas-
ures," at least to me.
Apparently the river bottom
and the rock jetties harbor all
kinds of encrusted life that on
rough days gets torn from the
substrate and deposited on
the beach.
Here is where I am liable
to find sea whips, in bright
colors of yellow, and some-
times ,orange. These soft
corals are relatives of the
hard corals most of us are
familiar with, the basis of
tropical coral reefs. And here


I find clumps of bryozoans,
usually the common bugula,'a
species related to worms and
mollusks which looks like just
a clump of algae until you
investigate it further.
Sometimes unusual shells
show up on this
muddy/sandy stretch, and
sharks' teeth too. When it is
horseshoe crab mating sea-
son in warmer weather,
this is also the area you are
most likely to find smaller
males affixed to larger
females, sometimes stranded
on the mud when the tide
recedes.
What is even more intrigu-
ing to me than these forms of
marine life, though, is the
coast of sand dunes, prickly
pears and thorny smilax vines
that frame the woods beyond.
This is the least visited
stretch of Amelia Island's
shoreline, and the most wild.
Some of my best mammal
sightings have been along
this stretch when I have it to
myself on a low tide walking
day. One year I saw a bear
here, "Walter" as it was
called, striding along the
beach. A number of times I've
seen bobcats here, in a place
where they don't expect to
see people, striding confident-
ly across the sand. Lots of
deer tracks cover the sand
here apparently the deer
walk to the water's edge to
drink, maybe an alternate
source of salt, where no other
"salt licks" are found.
Onenmemorable day along
this coastal area I even saw a
wild mink! This small ferret- .
like animal is exceedingly

part of Fort Clinch State Park
there it was, a mirik, "ferret-

IN 'PURSUIT'


HEATHER. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
Yulee Middle School spelling champion Jack Goshert
started off the 2012 Nassau County District Spelling
Bee with the word "pursuit." Ten students from area'
schools competed in the 37th annual event on Feb. 1,
which was won by Hannah Simpkins, a seventh grader
at Hilliard Middle Senior High.


"The purpose of the Yulee
Baptist Learning Center is to
provide the best care and
learning situation for every -
child who attends our pro-
gram. Showing them love and
understanding and laying a
foundation so the children
come to know Jesus through
a personal relationship," says
director Chrystal Lewis.
'Ministering to preschool-
ers since 1981, the staff is
very excited about a recent
grade of 100 percent from the
state Department of Children
and Families. !
"After making many
changes to our center and fol-
lowing all rules and regula-
tions from the state of Florida,
we have received a 100 per-
cent on our inspection apd we
plan on keeping this rate from
here on out," said Lewis.
The name of the center
was changed from Yulee ,
Baptist Weekly Ministry to
.Yulee Baptist Learning Center
"to let the community know
we are now a learning center
where children will develop
spiritually, intellectually, phys-
ically, emotionally and social-
ly. This is not just a babysit-
ting service."
Ninety students participate
in a curriculum based on the
WEE (Weekday Early
Education) Learn Series pub-
lished by Lifeway Christian
Resources.
During chapel time on
Wednesday, the children'
hear Biblestories, sing and
learn aboutJesus.
"That's the highlight 9f my
week," says Lewis, who miss-
es the interaction with the stu-'
dents she enjoyed as a
teacher.

itself. Once this bond stabilizes

use it as an anchor to support
a crown or bridge-even a

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Garrett
Pelican of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriffs 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 Sheriffs Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,
Hilliard and Bryceville. The "We
Tip" program 1-800-78CRIME
also allows callers to leave
anonymous tips.
Vandalismat FBHS
Students may be responsi-
ble for wrecking 112 door locks
at Fernandina Beach High
School, police have said.
Police have estimated dam-
age to school property at more
than $7,000, factoring in the bro-
ken locks and labor costs to
repair or replace them. Because
the damage exceeds $1,000, the
culprits will face felony charges
when caught, police said.
Police said between 6 p.m.
Feb. 26 and 7 a.m. Feb. 27
unknown individuals trespassed
on the campus and vafidalized
99 percent of the school's exte-
rior locks.
' The vandals squirted glue
in the locks before forcing
wooden toothpicks into them,
or alternatively forced tooth-
picks into the holes and then
broke off the remaining splin-
ters, police said. Police said both
methods damaged the locks.
Investigators combed the
entire campus but did not recov-
er any empty or used glue bot-
tles, toothpick boxes, foot or
handprints, according to the
report,


Police said interviews with
members of the student body
are ongoing. Some students had
been discussing various acts of
vandalism to perform as a
"Senior' Prank" and gluing the
school's locks was one qf the
ideas proposed, police said.
Shooting
A Hilliard man was arrest-
ed Saturday evening for tam-
pering with evidence related to
his friend's shooting, according
to a deputy's report.
Nicholas Bryan Alford, 18,
told investigators his friend,
James Miller, shot himself about
8 p.m, while examining a
firearm at his Vintage Lane res-
idence in Hilliard, deputies said..
The report did not list Miller's
age.
A friend of Alford's parents
brought over a 9mm handgun
and was showing it to the two
when Miller dropped the gun
and it discharged a round,
wounding him near his left
knee, Alford told deputies. The
friend then grabbed the gun
and left promptly, Alford said.
Deputies said Miller con-
firmed that report before emer-
gency personnel transported
him to Shands Jacksonville for
treatment. Miller was dis-
charged Sunday, a hospital
spokesperson said.
When deputies failed to
recover a shell casing from the
scene, Alford revealed he had
picked it up but could not
explain why, according to the
report.
Alford's parents told
deputies they could not match
their son's description with any
of their acquaintances. A con-
versation between Alford and
his parents revealed there was
not a third person involved and
that Miller actually shot him-
self with Alford's mother's hand-

handgun after the shooting and
hid it in his camper on the prop-
erty, according to the report.
His stepfather led deputies to
the gun, which was stained with
what appeared to be dried
blood, deputies said.

Drugbust
A Georgia man was arrested
Thursday afternoon for meth-
amphetamine possession after
drugs and a gun were discov-
ered at a condo on the south
end of Amelia Island, deputies
said.
A property manager for the
Amelia Surf & Racquet Club
told deputies he went into a
rental unit about 1:30 p.m. and
found drugs sitting on and next
to a couch in the room. Nobody
was supposed to be in the
condo, he told deputies.
Deputies saw no drugs on
the couch, but found a woman
sitting in a bedroom instead,
according to the report. The
woman said she and a man,
Charles Junior Burke, were the
only people in the condo and
that Burke was in the bathroom,
the report stated.
Deputies said Burke was
naked in the bathroom and he
tried to shut the door when
asked to leave the room.
Deputies found his clothes and
cell phone inside the room, and
a boot containing a bag of white
substance.behind the door, they
said.
Burke, 47, and the woman
told deputies they were con-
struction workers in the process
of remodeling the apart-
ment and that Burke was about
to shower when they showed
up.
Deputies removed the bag
from the boot and had Burke
try on the boot to see if it fit, and
it did, according to the report. A
field test of the substance yield-
ed a positive result for metham-
phetamine, deputies said.
Deputies said the handgun
sat next to the couch where it
was previously spotted. Burke
denied any knowledge of the
weapon and insisted it was not
.his, according to the report.
Burke, of Waycross, Ga., is


charged with possession of
methamphetamine.
Batterycharge
A Fernandina Beach man
was arrested early Feb. 28 for
starting a fight inside a CVS
Pharmacy and striking ,an
officer, according to a police
report.
A store manager at the
Sadler Road business told police
there had been a fight and point-
ed out two male customers and
told investigators one had
shoved the other. Police said a
detective identifiable by an
embroidered badge on his shirt,
and a gold badge, handcuffs and
a holstered firearm clipped to
his belt approached the
aggressor, Christopher Andrew
Peters, and asked him to step
outside to answer some ques-
tions.
Peters, 39, at first ignored
the detective, police said. Once
told he would be detained if he
did not come outside voluntari-
ly, Peters charged the detective
and punched him several times
in the neck and face, police said.
Police said the detective tackled
Peters by the waist and held
him until backup could apply
handcuffs.
The elderly gentlemen
involved in the earlier scuffle
told police Peters had shoved
him, following an argument over
which of them was in line first.
Peters asked the man to step
outside to settle it before shov-
,ing him, the man told police.
Peters, of 5 Red Maple Lane,
Fernandina Beach is charged
with battery on a law enforce-
ment officer.
Drugbust
A Fernandina Beach man
involved in a dispute was arrest-
ed for cocaine possession
Sunday evening, according to
a deputy's report!
Deputies responding about
7:30 p.m. to reports of a dispute
at the 1300 block of South 10th
Street encountered one of the
men involved, Stanley Javan
Jones, as he was leaving. While
deputies spoke to Jones, 60, he
allegedly removed a small bag
from his right pocket and
dropped it on the ground. After
shining their flashlights on the
bag and seeing a white powder,
deputies handcuffed Jones and
retrieved the bag, according to
the report.
Jones told deputies he snort-


ed cocaine that morning,
according to the report, and
said he kept the drug for per-
sonal use only on weekends.
Jones allegedly told deputies he
forgot he had the bag with him
until encountering them and
didn't think they would see him
drop it.
A search of Jones revealed
two hypodermic needles and a
small clear straw with cocaine
residue in his pockets, deputies
said. The substance in the bag
field-tested positive for cocaine,
according to the report.
Jones, of 1300 South 10th St.,
Lot 9, Fernandina Beach is
charged with possession of
cocaine bond $10,002, and
possession of drug parapher-

ALSwalkin Jacksonville
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-dord.
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-
Sease. 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 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.

FAMILY From 1B
Southwell got on base. Coach.
Charlie Deberry also singled,
followed by brother Chris'
home ruh. All of a sudden the
scoreboard read 14-10.
By now the crowd had got-
ten into the game and Team
Three had hope, knowing
Jessica Linville and Paul
Magnuson were due up.
Linville reached base on a
close play and Magnuson got
on by an error. Brittany Allen,
who had not reached base all
day, drove the ball hard for a
triple. Corbitt drove in Allen
to tie the game. Hollis

with a walk. Team Three man-
aged to get leadoff man
Brandon Taylor out.
With two outs and his dad
and wife on base, one of the
best players in the FDSL,
Matt Thornton, was due up.
Thornton smashed the ball
through the right side of the
infield like a cannon shot,
only to be snagged by the
quick reaction of second base-
man Sarah Southwell in one
of the best defensive plays of
the season to make the final
out.
Team Three defeated
Team One 14-13. The final
words by Pastor Bellar as he
was leaving the scorer's box?
"The Journey won."
Based, on the embrace by
the two teams and the prayer
time together after the game,
the pastor was right.
In other FDSL action, 1

score three runs in the final
inning to defeat Christwalk

"1 just can't believe the
number of waterfowl I am
seeing here at Rodman
Reservoir," Jim Daubel said
as he watched his nervous
live shiner avoid nearby lake
bass. "I have fished in a.lot of
different lakes and rivers
throughout the country and,
by far, Rodman Reservoir has
the healthiest stock of wildlife
and fish too."
Seconds later an eight-
pound Rodman Reservoir
bass ambushed Daubel's one-
pound live shiner, putting a
deep bend in his bass fishing
tackle, Following an exciting
fight, including somersaulting
jumps and snagging the
weeds below, fellow angler
Bruce Comrie slipped the ,
wide mouth of his landing net
tinder Daubel's trophy bass.
After photographing and,
admiring his catch, yet anoth-
er "lunker" bass was caught
and released at Rodman
Reservoir.
"I have made a living fish-
ing on Rodman Reservoir for
the past 35 years," said
Howard Matchett of Orange
Springs. "My wife, Diane, and'
I raised five children by com-
mercially harvesting wild
shiners for bait at Rodman
Reservoir.' My father, Wilbur
Matchett, fished at Rodman
Reservoir as well.
"I have to.say I have per-
sonally only seen one mana-
tee in the reservoir, which is
one of the factors that envi-
ronmentalists are trying to
drain the reservoir to help I
restore manatee habitat.

The dam
is named for
a former
state senator
George
Kirpatrick,
who fought
to preserve
the 9,600
acre, 15-mile
long reser-
voir that
attracts
,anglers from


across the nation.
Florida defenders and the
Florida Wildlife Federation
contend the dam violates the
federal Endangered Species
Act by blocking the migration
of sturgeon and manatees.
The groups are represented
by Earth Justice, an environ-
mental legal organization.
Ed Taylor heads a group
called Save Rodman
Reservoir, which believes
removing the dam would
cause nutrients now removed
from the water by aquatic
plants in the reservoir to pol-
lute the Ocklawaha and St.
Johns downstream. Save
Rodman Reservoir will host
its 16th annual Save Rodman
Reservoir Bass Tournament
April 21 from Kenwood

Close to home,
Cumberland Island is home
for the American bald eagle
and golden eagle. I have also
seen bald eagles perched
high in moss-draped oak
trees at Amelia Island's Crane
Island. Golden eagles are
dark brown in color with tan
head feathers, while the
bright white head feathers
identify the bald eagle.
Eagles feed mainly on fish,
waterfowl and small mam-
mals. They can fly up to 30
nmiles per. hour and, during a
dive for a kill, eagles can
reach a speed of up 100 miles
per hour. Their super keen
eyesight allows them to spot
prey up to one mile away.
Allen Mills recently wit-
nessed a bald eagle making a
kill on a black crow while in
the Nassau woods.
"It was awesomeWatchitig

An American bald eagle perches on a cypress tree at Rodman Reservoir's dam, above. The flooding of the
Ockfawaha River has created a unique habitat for eagles, a variety of wildlife and giant fish too. Rodman Reservoir
attracts fishermen from all parts of the country who believe it may produce the next world-record largemouth bass.
The University of Florida, during a stidy, reportedly shocked a 24-pound largemouth bass. Without a doubt the
biggest attraction to Rodman Reservoir is the trophy bass fishing. Jim Daubel, below right, is pictured with an eight-

WildNite
The Wild Amelia Nature
Festival's next Wild Nite
nature forum will be on the
topic of "Stop the Invasion!"
March 13 at the Peck Center
auditorium at 7 p.m.
The relevant invasion is
not the annual pirate inva-
sion, but rather the invasion
of non-native species flora
and fauna that do not
belong on the island but
often take up residence
(both accidentally and on
purpose) and spread to
other areas of the island.
Maia McGuire, PhD, the
University of Florida Sea
Grant extension agent for St.
Johns and Flagler counties,
will help determine which
plants to avoid and which to
embrace and will discuss
non-native animals whose
spreading populations can
be troublesome for
islanders.

forum series is free and
open to the public. The sixth
annual Wild Amelia Nature
Festival May 18-20 at venues
*on and around Amelia Island
