Rancor over



selection of



city manager


Itwon't be

Dave Lott
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers voted 3-2 Tuesday to bar Interim
City Manager Dave Lott from apply-
ing for the permanent position.
It was also decided in a 3-2 vote
during the rancorous meeting that
commissioners would not use a super-
majority vote to choose the new city
manager. Mayor Arlene Filkoff and
Commissioner Tim Poynter were the
dissenting voters in both actions.
Commissioner Sarah Pelican had
asked at a previous meeting for a dis-
cussion to rescind a January com-
missioner action that required a
super-majority (or 4-1) vote to choose
the new city manager. Commission-
ers in January also agreed to hire an
interim with the
provision that he or
she could not apply
for the permanent -
manager position.
Poynter also
asked at the last
meeting for a dis-c
cussion on whether
Lott should be con- Lott
sidered for perma-
nent city manager,
along with other applicants.
The city has received 93 applica-
tions I.r tlhe job, which have been
evaluated by Paul Sharon of the
International City Manager
Association. Sharon submitted his
recommended 10 choices to com-
missioners last week.
Resident Lynn Williams at the
meeting said, "Many of us think (Lott)
has done an outstanding job."
"At the outset, he did not want to
sign on full-time," Williams said, "but
he would be an outstanding candi-
date. I'd like to consider Mr. Lott as
city manager along with the other 93
candidates.:'
Resident Mac Morris said,
"Making a change in the super-major-
ity does not make sense," and asked
if there was a "secret agenda that is
being kept from the public."
"(I'his is) not about politics, favors
for a friend or being part of the good
old boy network," Morris said. "Any
city manager considering accepting
an offer of employment may recon-
sider if this commission shows inde-
cision on how they show support for
its city managers."
LOTT Continued on 3A


Butwho

will it be?
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City commissioners agreed 3-2 at
the end of a fractious meeting
Tuesday to choose their own top five
candidates for city manager rather
than accepting the top 10 chosen by
Paul Sharon of the International City
Managers Association.
Commissioner Tim Poynter and
Mayor Arlene Filkoff voted against.
All 93 applications received by the
city were forwarded to Sharon for
evaluation and ranking.
Commissioners received his list of
10 recommended candidates last
week.
Sharon wrote in an April 12 memo
to commissioners that there were
"two categories of applicants that... I
do not feel are particularly enhanced
as candidates: local residents and for-
mer elected officials."
"Residents of Fernandina Beach,
while they may be presumed to be
passionate about their city," Sharon
wrote, "are ordinarily not equipped for
the various aspects of managing such
a complex operation, and cannot be...
totally objective."
"Previous service in elected office
does not necessarily equate to oper-
ational or managerial experience,"
Sharon wrote. "The citizens of
Fernandina Beach ... are not partic-
ularly well served by adding a per-
haps politically minded ... person to
the professional position."
Resident John Burch said he was
opposed to one candidate on the list
of 93, and that was Joe Gerrity, a for-
mer city commissioner and mayor
and former county coordinator for
Suwanee County.
Former city marina director
Coleman Langshaw said at the meet-
ing he had worked under seven dif-
ferent city managers, and that some
only lasted a year.
"This is an indication of the terri-
ble dysfunction in the city," he said,
adding that he had heard rumors
around town about "agendas and
cleaning house."
"We've had enough bloodletting,"
Langshaw said. "We need a calm,
dependable, intelligent and dedicated
person (as city manager).... We need
someone good in here."
"I would like to (take) as much
politics out of this as there seems to
be," Poynter said, "and go with the
WHO? Continued on 3A


Special meetingTuesday


A special meeting to discuss Femandina Beach Commissioners' choices
for city manager is scheduled for Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 204
Ash St. The meeting is open to the public.

But Commissioner Charles
Corbett insisted that the super-
majority decision could not be
rescinded because it was never
.a real resolution.
"We can't do this tonightl"
Cor'bett said. "We never passed
a resolutionn" Corbell also
noted that City Attorney Tam-
mi Bach and Filkoff signed off
on the commissioner vote in'
January, and that the action
was supposed to come back
for a resolution and commis-
sioner approval, but never did.
"We didn't vote on a reso-
lution, we voted on a motion,"
Corbett said. "I'm not rewrit-
ing history."
Filkoff said she had signed
a document authorizing the
super-majority vote, but told
Corbett that she "takes excep-
tion that (she) did anything
illegal or shady."
"Unless you want the super-
majority (vote) to stay, you
must take action on it," Bach
told Corbett at Tuesday's meet-

does not mean this resolution

the facility Gilman established
in 1982 to maintain genetically
diverse populations of threat-

tats.
The Wall Street Journal first
reported the foundation's
intent to sell the property on
April 10. According to the
Journal, "In 1987, Mr. Gilman
sent (Lukas), a zoologist who
heads White Oak's conserva-
tion program, to Zaire (now
the Democratic Republic of the
Congo) to work with pygmy
tribes to capture an okapi, an
extremely rare animal that
resembles a cross between a
giraffe and a zebra. Tdday,
White Oak has 14 of them.
"The plantation's menage-
nrie also includes rhinoceros-
es, the ostrichlike cassowary,
25 cheetahs and the largest
North American herd of the
giant eland, a type of large
African antelope, of which
there are only about 200 re-

White Oak houses 270 ani-
mals.
"The animals here are all
here because we're helping
them survive as a species,' Mr.,
Lukis" said, referring to the'
plantation's extensive breed-

sioners)l.'
City Clerk Mary Mercer
explained to commissioners
that a resolution number was
created for all commission
actions so that the action could
be more easily located in the
future.
Pelican noted the reason
she was asking to rescind the
super-majority vote was
because "the chances of four
out of five (commissioners)
coming to a consensus (about
a city manager) is going to be
highly, highly unlikely."
"I would have more of a
chance of being struck by light-
ning," Pelican added.
But Poynter scornfully told
Pelican it would be "a cold clay
in hell" before a certain candi-
date "being talked about in the


cerned about the future of the
property. I've put 30 years of
my life into this place,'" the
Journal reported.
Steve Shurter, director of
conservation at White Oak,
said staff plans to "continue
operations as normal." He said
employees are hopeful the
foundation will find a buyer
who shares the values culti-
vated at White Oak.
Budget cuts have reduced
operations in recent years, but
the staff aims to "uphold our
high standards and quality
work we've been doing through
the sale process," said Shurter.
"We've become much more
efficient," he said during a
phone interview Tuesday.
Shurter said guests and vis-
itors would not notice any
changes in service. As for the


city" would be elected, pre-
sumably former mayor Joe
Gerrity, who is one of the appli-
cants.
"I think we can get to a 5-0
vote," Poynter said. "I thought
that was what (Pelican) wanted
(in rescinding the super-major-
ity vote). We have 93 candi-
dates and a great short list.....
How can we come to a con-
sensus when we have not had
a discussion (about the candi-
dates)?"
After the discussion, Vice
Mayor Jeffrey Bunch made a
motion to repeal the commis-
sion decision made in January
to require a super-majority vote
to choose the permanent city
manager, and Pelican second-
ed it. The motion passed with
Poynter and Filkoff dissenting.


animals, the director said it's
difficult to predict the future.
According to the Journal,
"... The animals are also a
potential liability in trying to
sell the property. About 60 per-
cent of the $5 million annual
cost to operate White Oak
goes toward upkeep of the ani-
mals."
'. In addition to the conser-
vation center, White Oak oper-
ates a golf course, lodging and
recreational facilities on the
property. Howard Gilman, heir
to a lumber and paper compa-
ny fortune, also indulged his
passion for ballet and other
arts on the property, creating
a retreat for artists, politicians
and other famous people who
have used the facilities over
the decades.

Oh, the places



I've been!


Good friend recent-
ly sent me an
amusing essay by
some anonymous
wit. The essay was about
places seen and not seen
during the course of one's
life. I forwarded this little
masterpiece to another
friend, who not only embel-
lished it but suggested that I
develop it into a column.
This, then, is my latest offer-
ing to you, with a little help
from Cindy and-Emily.
One day not too long ago,
a group of us including my
two aforementioned friends -
gathered at a local watering
hole for our own brand of
Happy Hour. Soon .the talk
turned to traveling and the
places we've been. I started a
round-robin of reminiscence
by announcing that I have
been in Sane a couple of
' times, and I distinctly re-
member being driven there.
Apparently, there's no air
service. I have also been in
Doubt, but very rarely. That
state.is so depressing that
my friends and I try to avoid
it. I've been in Flexible, too,
but only when I felt that it
was extremely important.
Several of us agreed that
we'd been in Capable once or
twice. I find I'm in Capable
more and more as I grow
older. On the other hand, I
am in Defiance less and less
as the years go by.
Another friend quietly
admitted that one of her
favorite places to be is in
Suspense. She gets an,adren-
aline rush every time she's'
there, and several heads 'nod-
ded in agreement when she
said that at this age, we need
all of the stimuli we can get.
Somebody at the table admit-
ted that they'd been in
Continent a couple of times.
She didn't remember where
she was at the time, but it
was right before she was in
Dutch. I added that, even
though I was much younger
at the time, I distinctly recall
being in Deep Kimshee. I
didn't like it there very-much
people yelled ai me ia lo
Th"le murmurs and nods "
around the table told me that
I wasn't the only one who'd
been in Deep Kimshee a
time or two.
Despite my loud protests,
my girlfriends insisted that I
have been in Sensitive with
them a time or two, but we
quickly agreed that I have.
never been in Cahoots with
any of them. Apparently, you
can't go alone, and I could
never talk any of them into
going in Cahoots with me.
On the other hand, they
admitted, however begrudg-
ingly, that I have probably
been in Cognito once or
twice, but since no one rec-
ognized me, it's very hard
for me to prove I was ever
there.
I bragged about adding a"
visit to Conclusions to my


bucket list,
but several
girlfriends
.. told me l'd
have to
jump to get
S"--.. there. Since
'_ .' I'm not big
__ on exer-
cise, I've
C Y decided to
SIDEBAR put off
.... jumping to
Conclu-
Cara Curtin sions until
after I've been in Shape for a
while.
And then someone told a
simply hilarious story about
the time she,was dragged
through a Knothole, even
though she was kicking and
screaming in a Panic. After a
good laugh, we all agreed we
hated being in a Panic it
squeaks loudly and belches
foul-smelling smoke.
I thought I had ruined the
mood when I told everyone
about the time I slept
through It All, but that
inspired one of the group to
admit that she'd been to
Through and Through, but
they both looked the same to
her. Gloom and Doom are no
better, she said.
Soon we were all laugh-
ing about the bad trips we'd
taken. Several of us had been
in Defatigable a time or two,
but never again wanted to be
that tired. The friend sitting
right next to me declared
that she had been in Sensed
a couple of times, but not
recently. It was simply too
exhausting to visit very
often.
At the end of the evening,
first one and then another
girlfriend lifted her glass
until we were joined in trib-
ute to an absent friend. She
had first gone to Down and
then Out, which had led her
up the Garden Path. Next
thing we knew, she'd been
up to No Good. She eventual-
ly fell into Disrepute and is
currently stuck in the
Depths of Despair, one of its
depressing subdivisions.

and my girlfriends. Follow
our advice about being out of
Condition and remember
that being out of Mind will
drive you crazy. Once you're

IIEAT lIERA. PERRY
News-Leader
Boy Scout dad Curtis Gaus
was excited to have the oppor-
tunity to spend five days in the
mountains 'with his two sons,
Joshua and Matthew, over their
spring break.
-The trio took part in a 30-
mile backpacking trip from
Dicks Creek Gap to Hogpen
Gap on the Appalachian Trail in
Georgia along with six other
boys and two adults. Scout
Troop #89 left Fernandina
Saturday, March 31 and
returned Thursday, April 5.
"Physically, the first couple
of days went well for me, blit by
the fourth day, I started to get
pretty' tired and sore," said
Gaus, adding that he and his
sons were disappointed not to
see any wildlife during their
trip.
"Well, there was that one
snake under a rock," said Scout
Greg Eberwine, 15.
"The mountain views were
awesome and it was a nice
change in scenery from the
Florida landscape. The worst
part was the body aches and
pains from the hike," said Gaus.
Younger bodies also felt the
effects of carrying 30-pound
backpacks while hiking steep
terrain.
"I personally felt fatigued at
the end of the 7.5-mile days,"
said David Beal, 13. "I think the
adults went to sleep about as
soon as they pitched their tents.
And then the snoring started."
The troop chartered a 15-
passenger van that towed a trail-
er carrying all their gear. Each
Scout packed clothes, three
liters of water, a sleeping bag,
tent and food.
"Some people brought self-
dehydrated food, some bought
pre-dehydrated and others
brought MREs (Mdals Ready
to Eat)," said Beal.
The group's only major
calamity was being caught in a
rainstorm with hail, lightning
and thunder.
"We had just received our
re-supply from the van on
Tuesday and started hiking up
the hill. First it was black clouds
and then it started pouring
rain," said Eberwine. "Then a
lot of pebble-sized hail came
and we ran about a mile and a
half to the nearest shelter but
there were already about 15
people in there so we had to
keep going."
In keeping with their "be
prepared" motto, the Scouts
had. packed their clothes in
water-resistant plastic bags and
everyone had ponchos and
backpack covers at the ready.
Eberwine said one of the
things he'll remember most is
"the stench" resulting from
being on the trail for five days
with no shower.,
"But really, I think we
learned better skills.a a unit
and teamwork."
"You're out there in the mid-
dle of nowhere hiking up moun-
tains and stuff and if .you get
hurt, you might have hours
before medical assistance can

ries to tell after a 30-mile backpacking trip.


come but you're part of nature
when you're up on the trail. I
mean, there's signal up there
but you're away from civiliza-
tion," said Beal. "It's nice being
out there. It's good to just dis-
connect sometimes."
Beal said the highlight for
him was being at the top of the
mountain after the steep hike.
"You could see for miles on
end. It was awesome."
Melissa Eberwine believes
the hike was very beneficial for
her son.
"It was a great opportunity
for Gregory to be away from
the compute' and Internet; and
all the things that he could have
done on spring break just sit-
ting at home. Just to take the
opportunity to gelt away from
it all and be with boys. He has
three sisters, so Scouts has
been a great outlet for him to be
with other guys."
Leigh Coulter Beal, David's
mom, agreed, saying, "It
impressed me that the boys
came up with solutions to prob-
lems without the adults telling
them what to do. Souts, espe-
cially this troop, is about letting
the boys be the leaders and the
problem solvers. For instance,
when they were in the middle of
that storm, David texted his
dad the coordinates to make,
sure there were no tornadoes
coming and I wouldn't have
thought of that."
Scoutmaster Dr. Dan
Matricia is very proud of his


troop.
"The trip brought out the
best in these young men and it
is evident that those who earn,
the backpacking merit badge
have proven they have the abil-
ity, strength and endurance to
do great things and become
Eagle Scouts."
Matricia says the Scouts
learned valuable outdoor skills
including identifying and
obtaining pure water, cooking,
carrying backpacks up and
down the mountains and map
reading, all of which are basic
tenets of scouting.
'"The highlight of' fthe''trip,
for me, was finishing and just
knowing I could basically keep
up with these strong 'young
Scouts. My belief in the impor-
tance of scouting was renewed
as I realized those scouting
skills I learned long ago still
served me well when put to the
test presented by this strenuous
trip." said Matricia.
The next trip for the Scouts
will be summer camp in
Virginia.
The Fernandina Beach
Rotary Club has sponsored
Troop 89 for 75 years. Any boy
between the ages of 11 and 17
may inquire about scouting by
contacting Matricia at 277-9611
or amurgcare@comcast.net. Or

the Scout Hut next to Central
Park or visit www.scouting.org.

Mama's got a


brand new phone

The last time I went out of town, my poor
spouse endured a major automotive catas-
trophe on the way home from the airport.
Without his own cell phone, the number for
my cell phone or our auto travel card, he
ended up in a hotel waiting for the closest
auto repair shop to open the next morning.
In preparation for my most recent trip, I
bought him a cell phone so we could avoid
communication gaps. But when I unpacked
the device and saw all the bells and whistles
it. had, I decided keep it for myself and let
the spouse use my old one.
I was delighted with this
exciting new toy, which not
only performs basic com-
munication functions but
also takes pictures and
videos and provides
Internet access. The phone
also has a built-in stop-
watch, alarm clock and
note saver. You can even
,NEWS .. play solitaire on itoAnd all
ROOM this for less than 20 bucks?
VIEWS Amazing.
I quickly called the cell
.-... phone company and went
HeatherA. through the process of
switching my service from
Perry the old phone to the new
one.
This procedure involved the shipment of
a new sim card for the old phone. Think of it
as the identification chip.
I rattled off my address, hoping this criti-
cal piece of communication equipment
would arrive before I left for my trip so I
could install it before I left. No way I wanted
to talk the spouse through it over the land-
line while I was away. Let's just say he's even
more gadget-challenged than me.
Then I sat down and attempted to edu-
cate myself on the new phone's functions by
reading through the booklet Unfortunately,
some of the information required to make
the phone work was not included.
For example, when setting up my con-
tacts, no matter how many times I clicked
the button to add, it kept saying, "No con-
tacts." I know there are no contacts; I'm try-
ing to enter them now.
Failure to follow the appropriate setup
sequence left me hopelessly mired in a loop.
Once I made it through this web of confu-
sion, I wanted to text my kids to show off my
new phone, but unless I could find the
spacebar, there would be no texting for me.
After trying every button on the phone, I
gave up and carried the phone to the com-
puter. In a forum on the company's website,
I found my answer. The spacebar is on the
zero key. Why didn't I think of that?
By the time I returned from my trip, I
had mastered the new phone. My son, the
gadget guru, had ample time to instruct me
on its use between flights.
I just hope my husband remembers to
take his cell phone with him when he leaves.
the house from now on!

He's wild about roadside eats


G rape Nuts is my cereal of choice, The
late Euell Gibbons said the crunchy
nuggets are good for a person, and 1
believed him. My wife said she'd just
as soon eat pea gravel from the roadside.
Gibbons also said that yarrow is healthful.
It makes a nice tea and is considered to be a
love charm. If the federal government hears
about its charming powers, however, the FDA
will step in and require that buyers register, as
yarrow users.
My wife loves this plant. She had yarrow in
her flowerbed at one time, but I cut it down
with a weed whacker. I thought it was a weed.
)Older and somewhat wiser, I know now that
love comes in many forms. Sometimes it looks
like a weed.
I learned a little about plants from the late
Marie Mellinger, who led nature lovers
through hills and valleys, naming practically
every plant as she went. She wrote a book,
Roadside Rambles, a guide for folks brave
enough to eat wild edibles. I keep it in our tiny
reading room for quick reference.
Speaking of wild edibles, my daddy said he
broke his arm eating breakfast during the


Great Depression. He fell out
of a persimmon tree.
/ W We have a persimmon
t ree in our yard, just in case.
S II looked dead a few years
ago, but miraculously rose
again, like a phoenix from
the ashes. The fruit is edible
but not very tasty; even the
(logs won't eat it. But it's
FROM another form of love, grow-
THE ing outside our kitchen win-
HOME dow.
OFFICE I remember stomping
maypops when I was a boy. I
.- .- thought that was their only
Phil purpose: to be popped. But
Marie's book suggests you
Hludgins slice them and simmer for
five minutes. Strain, add lemon juice and sugar
and serve over ice with lemon slices and mint.
Maypops, by the way, come from the passion-
flower vine, but don't tell Uncle Sam.
ntnd then you have blackberries and their
first cousin, dewberries. I don't have to tell
you how much love is packed into blackber-


ries. When Earl Palmer's Uncle Ralph
Deaton died, one of his relatives walked
around his casket three times while toting a
blackberry cobbler and, sure enough, Uncle
Ralph didn't sit up. So they closed the casket
and buried him. They weren't being cute or
cruel. They were just following Ralph's
instructions.
Two other wild edibles, hips and haws -
not to be confused with hems and haws, which
is what politicians specialize in will enhance
your mood, in case you're in a bad one.
They're used for tea and syrups and can be
candied for special treats. Hips come from
roses, haws from hawthorn trees. Use one or .
the other. Ingesting hips and haws at the same
time might cause your mood to overswing.
So there. I've given you a short lesson on
some lovely edibles found in the hills and val-
leys and on roadsides.
For convenience, though, you might try
Grape Nuts. Or pea gravel.

Courtyard Nights
I thoroughly enjoyed the evening
of Friday, April 13. Joey and Jeanie
played their instruments and pre-
sented a superb blend of Christian,
gospel and contemporary pieces.
The two performers even shared
uplifting accounts of how they min-
ister to people on an ongoing basis.
They presented a clean concert with
some old favorites as well as sever-
al newer works. They had three CDs
for sale and are getting ready to
soon present a fourth CD for their
listeners' pleasure.
Two of my favorite tunes include
the "Gospel Train" and "Down To
The River To Pray." There was
something offered for every listen-
er present. Several patrons also sang
to the tunes they recognized. It was
a lovely night at the Betty P Cook
Center in Yulee. The night was cool,
but the courtyard offered some pro-
tection from the wind and the
evening was quite comfortable. We
came prepared with chairs and
sweaters. There was popcorn,
lemonade and cookies free of
charge.
I would recommend this venue
for future concerts and look forward
to the fall season when the concerts
begin again. This is an activity good
for all ages. I hope that even more
people are drawn to these concerts
and look forward to participating in
the future. Thank,you to the spon-
sors as well; the FSCJ Nassau
Center, the News-Leader and the
Nassau County Record for a great
,evening!

Kudos
Kudos are in order for Beano
Roberts regarding his work on the
return of some symbol of normalcy
to the lighting issue for Centre
Street. His individual efforts deserve
recognition for their simplicity in
making Centre Street as distinctive
as it once was. And, he has done it
without the involvement of the city
commission or the expenditure of
"Voitian" sums for little or no return.
The $44,000 spent on up light-
ing under the, thankfully ended,
term of Nan Voit's responsibility for
downtown was more waste than
light. It showed no appreciation for
the work done by those in the past.
in addressing the appearance of the
downtown and historic district and
proved the ignorance in putting peo-
ple in charge of projects for which
they have no training,.expertise or
know how.
The two trees between Fifth and
Sixth Streets lit at Mr. Roberts own
expense, and with his assistance, by
Rex Lester and the talented city
employees under his direction are a
welcome addition to the downtown
streetscape.
Mr. Roberts is now taking it upon
himself to raise private funds to
return the proper lighting to our
beautiful trees. Paired with the
efforts of the city's maintenance
department downtown is once again
becoming an inviting area to walk,
shop and socialize as proven by the


TAYLOR JONES/EL NUEVO DIK


throngs along Centre Street and in
the shops and restaurants during
this spring season.
We can only hope that the
change in direction following the
change of leadership following
the last elections will continue
and that our fair village will contin-
ue to improve in appearance as the
efforts of individuals like Mr.
Roberts bring back the sheen to our
jewel of a home. If other groups
would make similar efforts without
burdening the taxpayers, their
dreams could also come true with-
out increasing our tax burdens -
locally known as franchise fees -
and borrowing monies for every
desire they have.
Thank you, Beano!

Speed trap
There's an illegal speed trap in
Nassau County on US 17 on the
Florida side of the Blue Bridge. How
do I know? I got a ticket for going 44
mph in what is clearly posted a 45
mph zone.
The trooper stated it's 35 mph
in front of the weigh station when it's
clearly posted 45 mph. To make mat-
ters worse I work in Jacksonville
and I live in Kingsland and I see her
handing out tickets in the same spot
on a regular basis.
It bothers me so much I went
back, took photos and am going to
court to dispute the ticket. I just
wonder how many other people got
tickets they didn't deserve.
Ifyou're going to give out tickets
at least know what the actual speed
limit is.

Where's the outrage?
On November 26, 2011, FAMU
Drum Major Robert Champion was
beaten to death on a band bus after
a FAMU football game in what was
called "a hazing incident" The victim
was a young black male student and
all the students on the bus were
black.
The incident has been deter-
mined to be "a homicide."An inves-
tigation by U.S. Attorney
Christopher Chestnut determined
that at least 17 people engaged in
hazing on the bus that afternoon.
For a brief period of time, there was
a move to suspend the president of
FAMU, pending a formal investiga-
tion, however, that was determined
to "be detrimental to the image of
the university.' To date, no one has
been charged, arrested or indicted.
Why haven't Jessie Jackson, Al
Sharpton, the New Black Panther
Party, the NAACP and thousands
of people rallied in the streets and
demanded justice for Robert
,Champion and his family? Where's
the outrage over the death of a
young black man? Need I say more?

Our fish and our future
When they came for the red
snapper I didn't worry because I
was not a bottom fisherman. When
they come for the king mackerel
and dolphin I'll not worry because
I fish inshore. When they come for
the redfish and sea trout or even
whiting I will not be bothered
because I fish for largemouth bass.
When they come for the bass I will
turn a blind 4ye because "they"
would never do that and besides,


I'm a hunter. But when they came
for my guns and I could hunt no
-longer, I couldn't understand just
how they ever gained that much
power.
Wake up sportsmen and con-
cerned citizens! Many of our local
fish species including shellfish are
already severely restricted and set
to be made off limits permanently,
including grouper, sea bass and
snapper all staples for our table,
small businesses and sporting
enjoyment. Call your representa-
tives and let them know that we will ,
not be denied our right to catch and
consume a reasonable amount of
our local seafood. (Sen. Bill Nelson
at (202) 224-5274 and Sen. Marco
Rubio at (202) 224-3041 need to
know that we need. their help..
It would also be good to know
the position of Mitt Romney, a prob;
able Republican presidential candi-
date and governor of Massachu-
setts, which is a coastal and
his-torically fishing oriented state. It
appears that the current adminis-
tration in Washington is not opposed
to the direction we are headed in
regards to catching and consuming
our local seafood are you?

Navy Seaman Appren-
tice Edward W. Vail, III, a 2008
graduate of Fernandina Beach
High School, 'Fernan-dina
Beach, was recently promoted
to his current rank upon grad-
uation from recruit training at
Recruit Training Command,
Great Lakes, I11.
Vail received the early pro-
motion for outstanding per-
formance during all phases of
the training cycle. Training
included classroom study and
practical instruction on naval
customs, first aid, firefighting,


water safety and survival and
shipboard and aircraft safety.
An emphasis was also placed
on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations." This
exercise gives recruits the
skills and confidence they
need to succeed in the fleet.
"Battle Stations" is de-
signed to galvanize the basic
warrior attributes of sacrifice,
dedication, teamwork and
endurance in each recruit
through the practical applica-
tion of basic Navy skills and
the core values of honor,
courage and commitment. Its
distinctly "Navy" flavor was
designed to take into account
what it means to be a sailor.

Cross-stitch, fish


As a kid, my great Uncle Frank
and Aunt Maddy owned a ski lodge
in Stowe, Vt. As a kid, one night I .
had the privilege of helping them
serve dinner to their guest. The fact
that I was so young around 10 -
and that they were willing to let me
handle something so important -
their guest marked me in a
way I'll always remember. Just last
week, my great Aunt Maddy passed
away. ,
On a recent visit to my Uncle
Terry's fishing store on Centre
Street, he and I remembered Aunt
Maddy and all that she meant to our
family. It was then that he showed
me one of his prize possessions, a
cross-stitched wall hanging made by
her especially for him. Knowing his
deep love for fishing, she used her


special skill to stitch some words
that hang on his office wall to this
day. This is what it says:
I pray that I may toil to fish
Until my dying day
And when it comes to my last cast
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefidully asleep
That I be judged big enough to keep
It wasn't until I was leaving
Uncle Terry's store that the signifi-
cance of the words hit me. As some-
one who loves to fish myself, and
knows the importance of measuring
fish to be sure they're legal to keep,
the idea of God measuring us at the
end of our lives became ever so
clear.
Now for those of you who enjoy
fishing, you know what the term
"slot fish" is all about. As it is with

Brennan Beckham and
Crawford also scored runs
with singles.
"We didn't play well, giv-
ing up 10 runs after two
outs," Roland said.

April 11, scoring a run in
the first inning against the

very solid hitting team."
The Hornets collected a
season-high 12 hits, scoring
five runs.

a team and are hoping to
play as we are capable of
playing in the district tour-
nament."

Spyro Gyra and con-
temporary pianist David Benoit
are set to headline the 2012
Amelia Island Jazz Festival, it was
announced by Artistic Director
Les DeMerle at the festival's
recent Big Band Bash.
A hugely successful commer-
cial group that has sold over 10
million albums since its 1977
inception, Spyro Gyra will appear
Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Omni
Resorts Amelia Island Plantation.
The popular Benoit, a major influ-

on Friday, Oct. 12, also at the

"We are very excited to have

some spectacular musicianship."

Q I purchased some plums and I now I won-
.der if I made the best choice. BS
A When purchasing fruit, or any plant, it is
best to determine if theses plants are vari-
eties well suited for our area. The plums you '
selected perform well in the California area but
they are not the best choices for Florida. ~
We would suggest selecting a cultivar with -
the prefix "Gulf' in front of it such as
Gultbeauty, Gulfruby, Gulfblaze or Gulfrose.
These are Japanese plum varieties, which are GARI
more disease resistant and require fewer chill- TAI
ing hours or cold days to develop fruit. The
peel is slightly bitter but the fruit is sweet on
these varieties and they all ripen in early May Becky]
The two trees you have purchased, Methley
and Santa Rosa, are older varieties which are Pacific. A
no longer recommended for our area. Both of coconut,
these are susceptible to plum leaf scald and tant prod
several bacterial diseases and the fruit quality in soaps,
is not high. Use a general fertilizer such as 6-6- oils.
6 or 8-8-8. Remember the numbers represent I will 1
nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Jacksonv
Consistent irrigation, especially during fruiting May 11 fi
and flowering season, is important for best be held a
fruit production. Learning appropriate pruning Complex
techniques is also essential. The publication $25 person
from the University of Florida, Growing Plums: ISA certil
in Florida, provides more information about Conta
fertilizing, pruning and watering: http://edis. rljordi@u

Q Can we grow coconut
W.palms here? CT
A *Coconut palms, Cocos
,. X nuciferaa, would not sur-
vive or produce nuts here in
Nassau County. These palms
should be grown in cold hardi-
ness zone 10b-11. Remember,
we are located in zones 8b-9a.
Even in South Florida,'

J( to several issues especially
nutrient deficiencies. Coconut

Coconut palms, above right, are a poor
choice for Northeast Florida. However
the rainlily, above left, thrives in area gar-
dens.

Florida publication at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/
pdffiles/M G/MG04300.pdf.
Q What is a rainlily? I saw it in a plant cala-
*log and was considering ordering some.
JS
A They are low maintenance, flowering
*bulbs that flower from spring through the
fall. The common name comes from the flow-
ers showing up after a rain shower. Rainlily
refers to any of about 70 species of
Zephyranthes and Habranthus, all of which are
flowering bulbs that share common names of
rainlily, fairy lily, rainflower and zephyrlily.
Rainlily is one of the easiest bulbs to grow
in Florida. When planted in an appropriate site,


rainlily needs little care after planting; it toler-
ates most soil conditions and will not need fer-
tilizer, irrigation or replanting. Rainlily seems
to flower best when clumps ere left undis-
turbed. like daylilies, the flower only last for
one or two days. This flower can be seen along
roadsides and in pastures throughout our
county during warm weather.
I would encourage you to try some in a sec-
tioh of your landscape you may find you
absolutely love them. We have several in the
large demonstration garden located at the
James S. Page Governmental Complex on
Nassau Place in Yulee. We also have specific
information regarding every plant on our web-
site: http:/'nassau.ifas.ufl.edu.
