Lakewood


residents


don't want


sidewalks
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Several residents of Lakewood sub-
division expressed concerns at last
week's city commission meeting that
proposed new sidewalks, combined
with heavy traffic, are creating a dan-'
ger in their neighborhood, Canterbury
Lane in particular.
After a discussion, commissioners
decided at the meeting April 17 that the
best tactic would be for the Fernandina
Beach Police Department to step up
efforts to control traffic in the area,
rather than halt construction of new
sidewalks.
Nassau County last year received a
Safe Routes to Schools grant from the
Florida Department of Transportation
to construct sidewalks on Robin Hood
Drive, Westchester Lane, Canterbury
Lane and Susan Drive for school-
children walking to and from Emma
Love Hardee Elementary on Susan
Drive.
According to an email from FDOT
District 2 safety engineer Scott Lent,
the anticipated start of construction is
mid-June, at an estimated cost of
$75,000. The sidewalk will range from
4 to 6 feet wide, depending on roadway
conditions, Lent said.
Resident Michael Bowen, who lives
on Inverness Road, which is parallel to
Canterbury Lane-, said drivers passing
through the neighborhood "have total
disregard for stop signs."
'The sidewalks are not the issue,"
Bowen said. '"The main thing is that the
traffic is so bad there ... I see this traf-
fic all day long ... I feel very strongly
that sidewalks are not going to be a
deterrent." "
Canterbury Lane resident Susan
Gagnier said she and other neighbors
believe new sidewalks will be "poten-
tially dangerous" because trash cans
and mailboxes will block walkers from
using them properly. "Children have to
avoid trash cans and mailboxes and
will have to go out onto the street,"
she said.
Another potential danger, Gagnier
said, is that motorists pulling out of
their driveways will not be able to see
children using the sidewalks. Gagnier
also noted most children who go to
Emma Love Hardee do not walk, but
rather are driven to school.
"Our suggestion is to close
Westchester Lane," Gagnier said. "We
already have three points of exit and
entry to our community."
"(These sidewalks) are a retroactive
fit," Gagnier added. "It does n,,I 1,i ihi,'
community."
City Police Chief Jim Hurley told
commissioners that a traffic study of
the neighborhood determined the
problems are "a complicated situation."
He said Florida statutes set the speed
in municipalities at 30 mph, but that can
be reduced to 20 mph by the city com-
mission. The Lakewood subdivision
has a speed limit of 20 mph.
"The simple fix seems to be to put
15-mph speed limit signs, but that only
works for some law-abiding citizens,"
Hurley said. Florida statutes, he said,
do not at this time allow for speed lim-
its as low as 15 mph.
Hurley said he had visited the
neighborhood and observed drivers
pulling far into the road at one inter--
section because it is at an oversized

Nassau joins


lawsuit over


Medicaid bills

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
One week after the Florida Association of Counties
announced it would sue to stop the controversial change of
Medicaid revenue sharing, Nassau County is following
suit.
The Nassau County Commission threw its support
behind the Florida Association of Counties in a unanimous
vote last week, adding the county to the growing list of plain-
tiffs. Commissioner Steve Kelley was not present.
Commission Chair Stacy Johnson, who serves on the
Florida Association of Counties board, said she and other
board members voted to proceed with the lawsuit during
a conference call April 12.
'The quote that (FAC executive director) Chris Holley
used was that, 'Local taxpayers shouldn't be forced to pay
for Tallahassee's accounting errors,' and that's what I'm say-
ing," said Johnson. "It's another unfunded mandate that's
coming down to us."
Under the legislation, recently signed into law under
House Bill 5301, the state would seize larger portions of
Medicaid revenues for delinquent -and some say' ,. 11ii' ..
inaccurate bills individual counties owe the state.
County Attorney David Hallman said the mandate would
double the county's cost for Medicaid sharing. That change
would amount to an estimated $400,000 out of Nassau's
pockets, said FAC spokesperson Cragin Mosteller.
Joining the suit poses little impact for taxpayers. Hallman
said Nassau, due to its small rural status, would pay a flat
fee of $1,000. Medium counties will contribute $3,500 and
large, urban counties $5,000, and FAC will draw funds from
its legal reserves to offset any shortfalls.
Some, including Hallman, have called the recently
passed legislation "unconstitutional."
FAC officials outlined at least three grounds to fight

County radio



upgrade cost:


S1.65 million
GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
In an effort to bring Nassau County up to speed, com-
missioners have agreed to purchase a $1.65 million upgrade
to the county's six-year-old radio system, funded through
the capital improvement budget.
The upgrade drew unanimous support from the board.
Commissioner Steve Kelley was not present'at the m. ir, -
The county purchased the Motorola radio system for $6.8
million in 2006, drawing criticism then from Clerk of Court
John Crawford, who maintained that maintenance and
upgrade costs would be expensive and that a less expensive
system might be preferable.
The system, which county dispatchers rely on for all 911
services, has -long been due for an overhaul, County
Information Technology Director Guy Riner said.
"When you've got a 24-hour-a-day system like that, you
don't want to run into an issue where you're trying to get
a repair man" at odd hours, he said.
Like its predecessor, the upgrade comes with a one-
year warranty. Riner said the origiriel system has not had
any upgrades since its purchase in 2006.
"We're just trying to maintain the system they put in back
then because they haven't done any upgrades on it since it
was initially acquired," said Riner. "Part of that $1.6 million
is upgrading the consoles for dispatchers. It's refreshing the
hardware that you can't get parts for anymore."
Riner said the upgrades update the existing Motorola
Project 25 system fiom version 7.4 to 7.11, Motorola's most
current version, and move the county away from compo-
nents reaching the ends of their lives.
The change means the county's radio communications
will be much "more reliable," he said.
Crawford's finance staff was concerned in 2006 that
unanticipated expenses and maintenance costs could wind
up doubling the cost of the new system. Former deputy fire
chief Sam Young, who chaired a committee to investigate
the new system, disagreed.
Young maintained the county was replacing a woeful-
ly inadequate system with state-of-the-art communications
that would serve the county for up to 15 years. He admit-
ted that maintenance costs would be added to the total, but
said the clerk's office had overestimated them.

Continued from 1A
off-angle. He also said that
after clocking the speed'of
500 cars over a three-day peri-
od, the study determined 76
percent were driving 24 mph
or less.
Hurley said the depart-
mnent could step up ticketing
in the area, but that residents
know shortcuts through cer-
tain areas and "we try not to
cite those folks as a practice."
Hurley also noted there
was a discussion with the
homeowners' association and
speed bumps were voted
down. He suggested a stop
sign at Westchester Line as
"an easy fix," but the FDOT
would have to be consulted
first.
Commissioner Tim
Poynter said one of the issues
he was hearing from resi-
dents in the neighborhood
was that front yards would
be diminished by the new
sidewalks.
Mayor Arlene Filkoff
asked what would happen if
commissioners simply put a
stop to the sidewalk project.
"I think we would have to
pay (FDOT) design costs,"
Vice Mayor Jeffrey Bunch
replied. "We're trying to cre-
ate a safer environment for
children ... I don't know of
anyone getting hit by a car
on the sidewalk, but I've
heard about people getting
hit in the street." Bunch
added that the sidewalk plan
has been in the works for
about two years.
"Our main obligation is to
create a safer environment
for, children walking to
school," Bunch said. "If we
need to close that road off,
that's fine. The main thing is
safety. I wish we had side-
walks on every street."
"If one child was hit in the
street, if we could have been
instrumental in putting side-
walks in, would-the city be
liable?" asked Commissioner
Sarah Pelican. "I would not
want that on my head."
Bunch suggested Hurley
"use all avenues available to
stop, the speeding on the
street."
Hurley said later the
police department was con-
ducting another traffic study
during weekdays to collect
more information. It is also
placing a radar speed sign in
the area. Hurley also said it
was-not;uncotmmon for resi-'
dents to complain about driv-
ers using their neighbor-
hoods as shortcuts to other
areas,
According to an email
from City Community
Development Director
Marshall-McCrary, the sub-
division was built within city
limits between 1982 and 1989.
Sidewalks were not required
to be included in the subdivi-
sion.
The Safe Routes to
Schools state program began
in 2005 to enable and encour-
age children to walk and bicy-
cle to school. Funding is pro-
vided to the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation to
create and administer the pro-
gram. Emma Love Hardee
was choseri because its stu-
dents are in third through
fifth grade, which is a good
age for them to begin walking
to school on their own.

Heber MacWilliams, great-grandson of founder William MacWilliams, is joined by
Fernandina Beach Mayor Arlene Filkoff, Callahan Mayor Shirley Graham and
MacWilliams' great-granddaughter Sheila Greenleaf for the dedication of the Italia
historical marker Saturday.


Historical marker


dedicated for Italia


HEA'THERA. PERRY
News-leader
Current maps still
C show the town
between Yulee and
Callahan, but Italia
no longer exists.
It may have faded into
oblivion, but descendants of
its founder. William
MacWilliams, gathered
recently to dedicate an histor-
ical marker to commemorate
the town with text approved
by the Bureau of Historic
Preservation, Florida
Department of State.
Great-grandson Heber
MacWilliams shared his
,ancestor's fascinating history,
beginning with his departure
from Ireland.
l'He.wi, wan te. by tihe,
British for his work on behalf
of Irish independence, which
the British naturally took to
be subversive," said
MacWilliams. "He continued
his work for that cause in
America, becoming an officer
of the Fenian Brotherhood
based in Philadelphia. After
that movement died, he
moved to Baltimore in 1871
and started a bakery. iHe
moved to Florida in 1881,
founding the town of Italia in
1882."
MacWilliams died in
Jacksonville in 1887 at the,
age of 47 after being shot
in a scuffle over a gambling
debt.
All that remains of the
town today are the railroad
bed, the Shave house and an
abandoned cemetery. The


Heritagesite
Text on the marker designating the town of Italia as a
Flon ida Heritage Site dedicated April 21 reads:
"The town of Italia was founded here in 1882 by Irish-
born entrepreneur William MacWilliams. Italia was located
at milepost 18 on the Florida Transit Railroad, which ran
from Femandina to Cedar Key. The town began when for-
mer U.S Senator David Levy Yulee, president of the
Florida Transit Railroad, convinced MacWilliams to build a
brick factory here. Timber businesses soon came to Italia
with the openings of a wood-shingle mill and a sawmill to
take advantage of nearby forests. By 1885, Italia had about
100 inhabitants and included a depot, post office and gen-
eral store. Products made here were used in commercial
and residential buildings in Femandina and many other
Northeast Florida locations. Thomas J. Shave brought new
life to Italia when he built a turpentine still in 1905. By 1910,
turpentine was the area's primary business. Italia suffered
a fatal blow in the mid-1920s when the railroad was re-rout-
ed from Callahan to Gross, leaving the town without a
viable link to distant markets. MacWilliams named, his town
Italia, reflecting a then-popular Florida marketing campaign
which promoted the state as 'America's Italy' because of its'
similar peninsular shape and temperate climate."


original businesses are long
since shuttered and the cen-
itral area settled with private
homes and farms. The major-
ity of the forest land now
belongs to Rayonior.
Though it still appears as
a dot on most roadmaps and
is shown.on an FAA aeronau-
tical chart and listed on a
U.S. Geological Survey
Quad, for the most part, Italia
has joined the ranks of other
Florida ghost towns.
The dreams of its Irish
immigrant founder are now
commemorated by a marker
dedicated in ceremonies held
Saturday.

"What is the 15-year main-
tenance cost for the system?
How will the county fund that
cost. And did the board con-
sider the affordability of the
system? Right now we don't
have an answer," Crawlord said
on May 19, 2006.
Young s committee worked
with independent consultant
Kimball & Associates to
research new systems and,
bring back a recommendation
to the board. The first choice
was a Motorola SmartZone sys-
lcm priced about $6.5 million.
The county hoped to receive a-
$6 million federal grant to pay
for most of it, but two dyl- lf I
the county agreed to purchase
the system it learned it didn't
receive the grant.
Faced with financing a new
system on its own, 'the county


re-evaluated its selection,
choosing the Motorola Astro
P25 system, the consultant's
top recommendation and said
to be the latest in communica-
tions technology.
"We wanted the newest tech-
nology with the longest lifes-
pan and the longest vendor sup-
port," Young said at the time.
"And the P25 is the-standard
for all future communications
equipment."
The county renegotiated
with Motorola for a lower price
and a $6.8 million contract was
approved, but it included only
one year of maintenance. ,
Kimball consultant Richard
Martin told the commission
that the annual maintenance
cost for the first few years
would average $150,0(X) a year,
but as ]' -, -'. in got older that
price could be closer to
$300,000 a year.

United Way

makes goal
JACKSONVILLE United
Way of Northeast Florida an-
nounced its 2011-12 Annual
Campaign met the goal of a 2
percent increase over 2010 for a
.total of $25.5 million.
"We set an ambitious goal
for this campaign, but the team
of regional business leaders that
stepped up to support United
Way did a phenomenal job," said
Campaign Chairman Terry
West, president & CEO of
VyStar Credit Union. "Once
again, the generous nature of
the North Florida community,
both corporate and plrivatl citi-
zens, was strong. I can't thank
the community and my
Campaign Cabinet enough for
their outstanding efforts.
Achieving our goal means that
United Way continues to have
the resources to support initia-
tives that address the barriers to
quality education, financial sta-
bility and leading healthy and
engaged lives in our region."
United Way's five-year st rate-
gic plan identified education,
income and health as the build-
ing blocks for a good quality of
life in Northeast Florida. United
Way partners with 57 agency
impact partners to support 87
programs addressing education,
income and health, and to sup-
port vital human services needs
across the five-county area cov-
ering Nassau.
This year's campaign recei-
ved support from companies
and organizations throughout
Northeast Florida. Million Dol-
lar Circle companies included
Florida Blue (formerly Blue
Cross and Blue Shield of Flori-
da), CSX Transportation, Inc.,
Publix Supermarkets and
Vistakon.
Summit Awards were pre-
sented to organizations that best
exemplify the vision of United
Way through their spirit, involve-
ment and leadership during the
campaign. Recipients were Fifth
Third Bank (less than 100 em-
ployees). Enterprise Hold-ings
(100-500 employees), VyStar
Credit Union (500-1,500 employ-
ees) and Baptist Health (more
than 1,500) employees). A Sum-
mit Award for the non profit
division was presented to The
Salvation Army.


Worthwhile


investment


As high school and college
graduations approach, the writ-
ing on the wall overrides the
writing in student textbooks.
In stark letters, the writing
on the wall tells of an ominous
job market and a burgeoning
student debt load. Only one of
every two college graduates is
landing a desired job in his or
her field. Meanwhile, many are
indebted from the rising costs
of a four-year college degree.
In fact, outstanding student
loans in Ihe U.S. now approach
$1 trillion.
Ambitious high school stu-
dents are instructed to be dili-
gent and to study hard. The
payoff is the acceptance into a
prestigious college and a
bright future. A weakened
economy has altered this con-
ventional syllabus, however.
For some, college gradua-
tion is followed by the accept-
ance of a trivial job or two, in an
attempt to make ends meets.
For those with outstanding
loans of $20,000 to $200,000
- the financial equation
becomes more complicated.
Some fear that a zombie
generation could be created of
indebted, despondent college
graduates. With an under-
employment rate of about 14
percent in the U.S., the job out-
look is hardly bright.
Student debt has been ris-
ing since 2008. This year's
graduates will have a biggest
debt load yet up by 47 per-
cent over 10 years ago (taking
into consideration inflation).
In 2009, college graduates
carried an average of $24,000
in student loan debt, accord-
ing to the nonprofit organiza-
tion Project on Student Debt.
And graduates who default on
their student loans, by neces-
sity or by choice, are jeopard-
izing their futures.
The $1 trillion in outstand-
ing loans won't derail the U.S.
economy on its own. But that
doesn't mean defaulted loans
and credit-strapped graduates
won't im-pact the economy.
Aspiring college students
have typically become the lead-
ers of tomorrow. They often

If one of every two is not
finding a suitable job, that
means one is. And that's the
message that high school and
college students must digest.
Opportunities are there for
those who excel, who stand
above the rest. These are the
students who are obtaining the
coveted entry-level positions
in their fields.
Some must relocate, even
overseas, to land the position
they desire. This also applies to
internships, -a common pre-
cursor of landing a position at
graduation..
You can find articles ques-
tioning the value of a college
education. These are laugh-
'able. A college education still
has merit. College graduates
earn 75 percent more than stu-
dents with only a high school
degree.
However, while obtaining
an education, students must
gain work experience. This
also helps defray costs. Stud-
ents can do this through part-
time positions and summer
internships. This real-wtirld
experience is often the differ-
ence between landing a suit-
able job, or being relegated to
lesser positions that have noth-
ing to do with the chosen field
of study.
The writing on the wall of
reality must be taken to heart.
College is a big. worthwhile
investment with potentially a
big payoff.

-CHRIS '
HARTLEY

Throughout this campaign, many citizens of Nassau
County have asked who I am and what qualifies me to be
the next sheriff of Nassau County. Therefore, I wanted to
answer those questions so that the citizens of Nassau
County can cast an educated vote on August 14th.
I am in my 40's, happily married and the father of the
three most beautiful children ever. I am a Christian man
that believes in being obedient to God and serving him as
he sees fit.
At age 19, 1 left my hometown! of Lafayette, Indiana and
became a United States Merchant Marine Officer by the age of 20. While in my 20's
I attended Sante Fe College, Florida Community- College of Jacksonville, became
partners with my father in a local business and served as a local police officer. My 20's
served as a guide for who I would become later in life. I learned many good lessons
through those years and started to understand that we all make mistakes, but what we,
learn from those mistakes would be how our character in life would later be defined.
One of my biggest life lessons came in my 20's when I was accused of drinking and
driving under the influence of alcohol. I was not convicted of the allegation, but it was
at that point in my life that I realized I had not been living up to my potential as a leader
and a Christian.
In my 30's, 1 left law enforcement to rejoin my father as his business partner. He
has suffered many health issues (far too many to list) and I felt guilty for not being with
him. We worked together for a few more years and then sold our business. From that
point forward I began my own businesses and successfully operated them on my own
for many years. I have operated companies with revenues in the millions and 1 very
quickly learned what it meant to be fiscally responsible and a leader of hundreds of
employees. Also in my 30's came the best part of my life, my wife and children. I knew
that God had big plans for me, but I had not quite gotten there yet.
Now, I am in my 40's and after many discussions with my wife and many many
prayers I am seeking the office of Sheriff of Nassau County. I believe the sheriffs office
is due for a significant change. I have had the pleasure of answering the very same 911
calls that our brave men and women do every day, but I also have the knowledge of
what it takes to become a successful leader. I have been involved in over 2000 local
judicial cases and I have proven that I know what it takes to be fiscally responsible
through my 15 years of business ownership. I believe that these skills and experiences
qualify me better than any other candidate to become your next sheriff. I think knowl-
edge of the job is important (which I have), but at the end of the day the sheriff's office
is a business and I am the most qualified man for the job.
Finally, I would urge each and every citizen to research all of the candidates
thoroughly. Find out what each of us has accomplished in our chosen careers as it
relates to the position of sheriff. Do not cast a vote based on a name or because your
family knew somebody. Being a career officer or businessman alone does not qualify
someone to be the sheriff, but being proven in both would surely make for a great
sheriff. Also, each and every candidate should be available to you for your questions.
They should be honest with you and let you know who they are. So, whether it was a
marital indiscretion, being financially irresponsible or a criminal allegation, our
potential employer (you), has the right to know us prior to voting for us. You may
contact me through my website with any questions that you may have. You need a
leader that can be trusted and not one that will hide who they are from you. We must
vote for "New Leadership, Not Old Politics". God Bless you and thank you in advance!
Respectfully, r u 1 D :A C ; \, \., .

'Weird and

last night the city commission met with the
goal of deciding either who will be the next city
manager or narrowing down the applicants to
five. I have no clue I'm writing this on Sunday
morning how it will go, but I hope they
decide to choose the next manager.
As a veteran of the manager hiring process
who's seen, read and heard just about every-
thing when it comes to hiring city managers,
this commission's methodology has been
weird and wacky even for me.
First, they vote to require a super-majority
for hiring the next manager. Then, they prohib-
it the interim manager from applying for the
permanent job. Then they agree to enlist the
services of a representative from the
International City Manager Association to
examine the applications, rank them and rec-
ommend 10 to the commission. Then when the
ICMA guy makes his recommendation the
commission says, 'Thanks, but no thanks" and
agrees to come up with five names each to be
considered last night.
The problems with that process are numer-
ous and obvious: first, both the super-majority
requirement and the interim manager exclu-
sion violate the charter, in my opinion. Not only
that, but the super-majority requirement was
an effort made by two commissioners to make
sure that a specific candidate did not get the
job. Don't listen to the high-minded rhetoric
about the need for unanimity, or close to it. The
very thought of this candidate getting the job is
anathema to two commissioners, intolerable,
and they'll do just about anything to make sure


WEDNESDAY, APRl. 25, 2012 OPINION News-Leader


wacky at (

I that hiring doesn't happen.
The second problem lies
in the enlistment of the ICMA
,'f representative. Given: the
ICMA guy is going to be
ICMA-biased. He's going to
recommend ICMA members
and he's going to recommend
Against non-ICMA members.
So no one should have been
DEBATE surprised when he did just
AND that. He went even further,
TAC IE however, and said that two
categories of applicants
-... should be particularly target-
Ron Sapp ed for exclusion, 1) former
elected officials and 2)
locals. Wait, I know this isn't Denmark, but
something smells rotten: two commissioners
are working'hard to sed that one specific candi-
date doesn't get hired. These same two com-
missioners are passionate advocates of includ-
ing a representative from the ICMA in the
hiring process. Then, on cue, the ICMA repre-
sentative recommends that the commission
exclude two specific kinds of applicants. My
goodness, those two categories just happen to
apply to the candidate these two commission-
ers don't want to see hired. Coincidence?
Maybe you decide.
For commissioners Pelican, Corbett and
Bunch this is not a pretty time, they all appear
to favor the candidate the other two loathe.
And to make matters worse, the loathing two
are vocal, whining incessantly about the need


:ity Hall

to hire a "professional city manager," as if they
even know what that is.
The implication is clear, the ICMA guy and
the specific candidate-loathing commissioners
have made it so the skills and knowledge of a
city manager fall somewhere on the required
knowledge hierarchy between nuclear physi-
cist, microbiologist and neurosurgeon.
Baloney. In my mind, when you're looking for a
city manager you-look for four things: hon-
esty/integrity, people/political skills, fiscal
competency and leadership ability; those met,
everything else falls into place.
For two commissioners it appears that who
they want is not paramount, but who they don't
want. It's up to the remaining three to see
through the pretense, the fake rhetoric and all
the pretend wailing and gnashing of teeth. To
see all of that for what it is, an attempt by two
commissioners to take the high.ground in the
world of public opinion and to make sure that
Joe Gerrity does not get the job. That was the
reason for the ICMA guy and his convenient
recommendations, the reason for the super-
majority and the reason for the empty call for a
"professional city manager."
To the remaining three, don't cede the high
ground and don't be swayed by the empty rhet-
oric hear it for what it is; see the effort for .
what it is. And, if you really believe that your
candidate rises to the top re: honesty/integrity,
people/political skills, fiscal competence and
leadership ability, go ahead and make the hire.
I hope you did that last night.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Fernandina


Bench?


The historic business district of our fan-
tastic little town is quickly becoming one of
the most bench-friendly cities in the coun-
try. And as I continue to age I'm growing
fonder of them.
A couple of years ago the city commis-
sion developed and-implemented the idea of
pocket.parks downtown turning vacant
barren lots on Centre Street into simple yet
beautiful open spaces to rest and reflect
between the storefronts'.
Next came the benches
and a suggestion was made
to offer "in memoria-n"
plaques on the benches to
individuals and families
who wanted to personalize
and honor individuals who
impacted their lives and
the community.
Numerous benches
MY VEW have been added in the
pocket parks and along
.""'. Atlantic Avenue from
Foy Maloy. Central Park to Egans
SPublisher Creek.
Last week a few addi-
tional benches were added downtown, not in
the pocket parks, but on the sidewalks of
Centre Street. One of the new benches
installed was dedicated in the memory of
community activist and resident Clark
Hoshall. Clark had a reputation of being
strong-willed and often outspoken, but he
was extremely passionate in what he
believed in. He was a staunch advocate of
government in the sunshine, handicap
accessibility and protecting and preserving
the historic courthouse in Fernandina
Beach. How appropriate to have Clark's
bench anchored under the shade of the tree
located on the corner of South Fifth and
Centre streets facing the front entrance of
the historic courthouse.
It is rewarding to witness a simple idea
grow in popularity and in addition give my
tired and aching feet a place to rest while
enjoying the wonderful and friendly atmos-
phere our town offers.
Please keep the benches coming.

Lakewood sidewalk?
With respect for the officials
present at last week's city commis-
sion meeting, I must say that I was
appalled by the arrogance displayed
towards the Lakewood residents
who attended the meeting to dis-
cuss the Canterbury Lane Sidewalk
Project. Smug and condescending
remarks by officials have no place in
public meetings. This is supposed to
be a venue where residents have
the ability and right to voice their
concerns. I was there because I have
an opinion about this project and
learned via an email sent to a neigh-
bor that the'item would be on the
agenda. What we were not informed
of was the requirement to arrive by
6 p.m. in order to secure a "reser-
.vation" to speak. The email basical-
ly encouraged us not to bother
showing up until 7 p.m. as the item
would not be discussed before then.
That says to me that the commission
didn't care to hear from those who
will be directly affected by the proj-
ect, those of us who might have a
better idea, those of us who live
here. Only two residents secured
the opportunity to speak for three
minutes and made solid points as
to why this situation deserves fur-
ther discussion. With the exception
of Tim Poynter, those points fell on
deaf ears.
No doubt exists that there is a
problem with pedestrian safety west
of Will Hardee in Lakewood. As orig-
inally designed, the west end of the
community was supposed to be
closed. During construction in the
'80's it was felt that leaving the west
end open (Westchester) for con-
struction trucks was convenient for
those seeking a short-cut from Will
Hardee to South 14th..and AlA.
Therefore it was left open and paved,
creating high-speed throughways
,out of Canterbury, Inverness and
Sussex. Lakewood was never
designed to accommodate the
excessive speed and volume of traf-
fic present here and it was clearly
not designed to accommodate side-
walks.
Contrary to the vice mayor's
claim that the residents were
informed of the plan, a survey con-
ducted this weekend contradicts his
statement The only people informed
were those residing on the south
side of Canterbury. For reasons too
numerous to explain here, residents
overwhelmingly expressed that side-
walks are not necessary and may
in fact make the situation more dan-
gerous. Again, this should be open
to discussion with the people who
are concerned.
It is high time that federal, state
and local governments begin to real-
ize that the money they are spend-
ing belongs to us. We elect those
who serve us to be good stewards of
our tax dollars, not to squander
those dollars away on "feel good"
projects such as this without input
from those who are paying the bills!
The logic portrayed that night was,
"We have already spent the money
to have the area surveyed. If we
don't proceed we'll have to pay it
back which may put us at risk of'
not receiving any more." I don't
know how you feel, Fernandina, but
this is the type of attitude that has
our community and the nation in
financial trouble.
One last finding from the neigh-
borhood survey. It was determined
that three or fewer children walk
Canterbury Lane to Emma Love
School on an average day According
to the school's own recorded statis-
tics, a total of 10.9 students walk to
Emma Love from any direction. The
students who attend this school are
quite young at 8,9 and 10 years old.
I would never put a price on one
child's safety, however I'm confident
that most parents who are present-
ly driving their children will contin-
ue to do so, sidewalks or not.
The cost "estimate" for this proj-
ect, which includes sidewalks from


RICK MCKEE/THE AUGUSTA (GA.) CHRONICLE


Robin Hood to Amelia Road, is
$248,684.23. Do the math, I did.
Gregory Seabrooke
Fernandina Beach

Nota good idea
In order to secure federally fund-
ed grant money to construct side-
walks in the Lakewood area, offi-
cials were required to survey
parents of Emma Love to identify a
need. I can see the questions now.
Perhaps something like "Do you
think sidewalks along school routes
enhance student safety?" Who could
say no to a' question like that? It
would be a resounding "Yes!" They
were also required to secure
endorsement letters from state, local
and education officials which in so
many words stated that parents
aren't doing a very good job keeping
their kids thin and healthy and Big
Brother must step in and.spend
money to build sidewalks so the chil-
dren don't end up with diabetes or
cardiovascular diseases as adults.
Really?
What the survey likely didn't
identify and what the officials failed
to consider was the current speeds
and amounts of traffic flowing downi
Canterbury Lane on an average
school morning. It's heavy with par-
ents driving their kids to Emma
Love on their way to work and oth-'
ers who utilize this convenient short-
cut through a residential area that
posts a speed limit of 15 mph.
What the survey likely didn't
identify and what the officials
failed to consider was by construct-
ing a sidewalk on Canterbury, drive-
ways will be shortened to a point
where residents will no longer be
able to park one car behind another
without blocking the sidewalk,
which is a violation. This will force
residents and guests to park in the
street.
What the survey likely didn't
identify and what the officials failed
to consider was the obstacle course
children will be dealing with in the
form of mailboxes cemented into
the sidewalk, garbage cans, recycle
bins, larger trash, boxes, lawn debris
and the rear end of vehicles block-
ing the sidewalk. These obstacles
will force children into the street
only to navigate around the cars that
will now be parked curbside,.
Remember, traffic is heavy and usu-
ally exceeding the speed limit during
this time of the morning.
What the survey likely didn't
identify and the officials failed to
consider was a driveway that is too
short affects a driver's ability to see
a small child in their mirrors as that
child is walking just inches behind
the bumper of a car that's backing
up.
What the survey likely didn't
identity and officials failed to con-


sider was that many parents in this
day and age just don't feel very
warm and fuzzy about the idea of
allowing their 8 to 10-year-olds to
walk to school (certain times of the
year in the dark) and all the side-
walks in the world won't convince
them otherwise.
This is just another example of
throwing money around without
identifying a problem or carefully
considering the outcome.
Sidewalks in Lakewood? Not a
good idea.

Bigger signs
I believe the negative effects of
allowing higher signs on AlA close
to 1-95 would far outweigh any pos-
sible positive ones ("Bigger signs
off 1-95," April 18). Maybe some peo-
ple will stop at the intersection on
their way to somewhere else, but
many of our businesses and com-
munities rely on attracting people
who enjoy an attractive, peaceful
setting to live in and visit. For the
most part, that entry to Nassau
County has a nice woodsy appealr-
ance that still looks inviting.
Higher signs may scream,
"We're open for business," which
Nassau County Commissioner Stacy
Johnson apparently feels is neces-
sary, but they don't make you want
to linger there.
Plus, it is clear from the hun-
dreds of illegal signs and numerous
distractions along the AIA corridor
that enforcement of existing sign
ordinances is lenient at best. Sign
regulations shouldn't be eased, they
should be enforced.

Killing non-venomous
snakes
I was on a lovely walk with my
husband and two dogs when we
came across a pile of green waste on
the roadside. In that pile was the
beheaded 'carcass of a mature
snake. It broke my heart to see that
someone had needlessly killed a
red rat snake, a beneficial and gen-
tle member of the snake world.
I know that there are many of
the mindset that "a good snake is a


dead snake" but really, there are
few venomous species in our area
and plenty of snakes that keep a
low profile and help control the
rodent population. May I recom-
mend that county residents do a
quick computer search for photos of
snakes that are beneficial and left to
live? Most snakes are shy, and will
avoid contact with humans if they
are given a chance to escape. And
they will repay your kindness by
keeping the mice and rats out of
your homes.

plans to move back full-time next
year, I was very disappointed to have
received a parking ticket on Centre
Street last week while attempting
to display the many wonderful
aspects of the island to our group of
six visitors.
We arrived earlyTuesday morn-
ing:
1. Coffee and breakfast at the
coffee shop
2. Eco-tour from the marina
3. Drinks at Brett's where we
were met by 3 more .
4. Lunch at Caf6 Karibo
5. Visit to The Palace
6. Shopping for clothes
7. Shopping for jewelry
8. Shopping for fudge and ice
cream
9. Shopping for shoes
10. Shopping for souvenirs
Yes, we lost track of time (not
having seen the 3-hour sign).
Yes, we spent almost $1,000 sup-
porting the local economy
The parking ticket ended a
delightful day on a sour note. .

WEDNISDAY, APRiI. 25, 2012 NEWS News-Leader


DOUG STUBER/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
A gecko, above and below, caught by Doug Stuber in a Jacksonsville yard.

"' -,' .. .- --.- ,, :, ., -- -. -. -,. .% : --, - -.


Gecko, here and abroad


Over here in Asia geckos
are a part of life. These
lizards are active at nighl and
roam around catching bugs.
When you go to open-air
restaurants in Bangkok, the
walls are crawling with them,
hunting bugs beside lighted
signs. When you sleep in
more rural settings, your
night dreams are colored by
the piercing sound, GECKO,
GECKO that is frightening
until you remember where
you are and what they are
doing there. They are harm-
less critters, helping to rid
human habitations from bugs,
good for the environment.
At least here in Southeast
Asia, where many geckos are
native animals, they play use-
ful roles in the ecology of the
region. But what about geck-
os in Florida? That's another
story entirely, a story once
again I am indebted to Doug
Stuber for pointing out to me.
It turns out that Doug was
doing some yard work in
Jacksonville, and ever the nat-
uralist he noticed some differ-
ent lizards in his midst. He
caught them and identified
them as Mediterranean house
geckos, a close cousin to the
Asian house geckos I'm see-
ing over here. Neither species
is native to Florida, but both
species are found here, along
with more than a dozen other
exotic gecko species. Florida
does have one native gecko,
found in the southern Florida
Keys,'but what are the rest of
them doing here?
One only has to look at the
pet industry to find the
answer. Geckos are popular .
terrarium species, easy to
keep, fun to watch and amus-


ing to alarm
your na've
overnight
visitors with
their heart-
rending
calls. One
Friend of
mine, Bruce
Jarvis, had a.
WILD gecko he
WAYS called Fred
...__ that roamed
his house in
Pat Gainesville
Foster-Turley for a decade
or more,
spending its evenings cruis-
ing around the walls, and his
day mostly under the refriger-
ator.
Bruce had no need for
pest control services for his
house, no need for pesticides.
Fred took care of things in
that direction, and was an
interesting pet besides.
Although Bruce also had a
cat, they seemed to stay away
from one another. Eventually
Fred disappeared once and
for all but this was long after
the cat had already died of old
age. Maybe Fred did too.
Some kinds of geckos live five
years, some live 20, but old
Fred maybe wasn't the 20-
year variety.
It's one thing to have a
gecko in your house, but
think of how many pet geckos
over time in Florida have
managed to escape their
homes, or terrariums, or even
are intentionally released by
the "caring" owners to fend
for themselves when the nov-
elty of having them wears off.
Florida, as we all know, has a
warm, humid, nurturing cli-
mate, fit for many tropical ani-


mals from elsewhere.
Burmese pythons and boa
constrictors, for instance, are
taking over the Everglades.
Lionfish from Asian coral
reefs have established them-
selves in the Florida Keys.
And geckos, being even
more tolerant of our climate,
have become established in
the Southeast United States
as far north as the Carolinas,
including right herein our
own neck of the woods, at
least in Jacksonville.
Now, with this column,
you've got Doug's photos to
help you identify this lizard.
By now most everyone living
here and reading this column
knows what a green anole or
a Cuban anole is these are
common animals in most
everyone's backyard. But
what about geckos? Have you
seen one here?
If you do please take a
photo of it and send it to me
with details of where and
when you found it. If you are
not afraid of reptiles and
catch it and give it to .some-
one who wants to keep it in a
terrarium as a pet, that's even
better. These geckos may be
cute, but in the wild they com-
pete with native species that
rightly belong here, not them,
so removing them would be
doing a service to the ecology
of the island.
So the treasure hunt is on'.
I'm waiting for my first gecko
sighting! Have fun!

the bill. Because the bill did not
garner a two-thirds vote in
either the House or Senate, it's
subject to three provisions in
the Florida Constitution.
Those provisions say that
without two-thirds of the vote
from both chambers, the state
cannot require cities and coun-
ties to expend public funds, it
cannot introduce laws that
would shrink their authorities to
raise revenues and it cannot
reduce the percentage of state
taxes shared with cites and
counties.
Mosteller said the issue
stems from a state accounting
system lousy with errors.
"Imagine a legislature just
passing a law that your car pay-
ment is higher because the
bank didn't keep good records
on whether you made your car
payments on time," Hallman
said in a phone interview April
18. "What's right is right and
what's wrong is wrong, and
what the legislature has done
here is it essentially passed its
own sloppy book keeping mis-
takes onto the local taxpayer."

Nassau County Supervisor
of Elections Vicki Cannon
announced that her office will
provide another customer
service option to citizens
researching election and vot-


Administration, Mosteller said,
was prone to errors before it
switched, to a new computer sys-
tem five years ago, but the mis-
takes have since continued.
Today the agency has an error
rate of 26 percent, she said.
AHCA spokesperson
Meagan Dougherty said the
agency does not track or record
errors.
'The agency's collection rate
has historically been around 90
percent," Dougherty said in an
email, "but as of current, the
statewide average collection
rate is 74 percent."
Mosteller said that collec-
tion figure is down to 74 per-
cent because counties are dis-
puting the remaining 26 percent
- the aforementioned errors.
ACHA is meeting with rep-
resentatives from individual
counties to resolve those dis-
crepancies, but has yet to set
an appointment with Nassau
County.
For now, Nassau remains
one of 28 counties committed to
the legal fight. According to
FAC's website, litigation has not
yet been filed, but the organi-
zation expects to file suit before
the end of April.

) Seniors vs Crime
A Special Project ofthe Florida Attorney General


Guard against



income tax


return fraud


Last summer Seniors vs.
Crime wrote about identity'
theft and we cautioned
everyone to be very careful
to guard against accidentally
disclosing their Social
Security number to scam-
mers. In both 2010 and 2011,
the Federal Trade
Commission called identity
theft the number-one fraud
perpetrated on the American
consumer.
Your personal data can
be obtained by the bad guys
by going through your
garbage or your mail. It is
better to wait until the morn-
ing to place mail in your
mailbox or take garbage to
the curb. Remember to first
shred any documents that
include your personal infor-
mation. Hacking into an
email account, as described
in our last column, is anoth-
er likely way in which your
Social Security number 'can
be discovered by others.
This week we will describe a
well-documented case of an
Amelia Island resident
whose Social Security num-
ber was stolen, perhaps by
one of these methods, and
what action you must take if
this happens to you.
Our victim filed his tax
return a few weeks ago and
was awaiting his refund
when the Internal Revenue
Service notified him that his
return had been rejected.
The reason for the rejection
was that they had already
received his filing.
Unfortunately for him,
someone else had filed the
return using his Social
Security nubmer. The IRS
thought that the return had
been properly filed and .,
rejected the real one-This,-
type of identity theft scam is
becoming more and more
common.
If you are a victim of this
fraud the IRS recommends.
you take the following steps:
1. Call them at (800) 908-
4490 and report the fraud.
Following that you should
expect to receive a status let-
ter from the IRS every
. month for up to one year
until your case is resolved.
2. Notify the Federal
Trade Commission that the
IRS has informed you that a


fraudulent tax return was
filed under your name and
SSN. Their phone number is
(877) 438-4338.
3. A police report should
be filed with either the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department or the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office. The
report should state how you
learned that a fraudulent
return had been filed in your
name.-You should send the
report to the IRS (see #6).
4. Notify the Social
Security Administration at
(800) 772-1213 of the misuse
of your SSN.
5. Notify the three major
credit bureaus of the prob-
lem and ask them to place a
security freeze on your cred-
it report. This means that
your file cannot be shared
with potential creditors and
even someone who has your
SSN could not obtain credit
in your name. Call Equifax
(800-525-6285); Experian
(888-397-3742) and
TransUnion (800-680-7289).
6. File IRS Form 14039
(Identity Theft Affidavit)
including copies of the
police report, your driver's
license, Social, Security card
and your passport.-
Finally,'in order to get
your refund from the IRS
you must file a paper return,
requesting an extension if
necessary. You should
include IRS Form 14039
with all attachments such a
the police report and your
identification information.
Please contact Seniors vs.
Crime for further assistance
if you find yourself a victim
of this type of identity theft.
Seniors vs. Crime is a spe-
cial project of the Florida
State Attorney Genercadihd: '

Department. Our services are

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25,2012 NEWS News-Leader


POLICE REPORT


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

Battery on EMT
A Yulee man hospitalized for
intoxication was arrested early
Sunday for battery on an emer-
gency medical technician,
according to a police report.
Police said emergency per-
sonnel at Baptist Medical
Center Nassau were treating
Joshua Adam Conley for a high
level of intoxication about 10
p.m. Saturday when he grabbed
an EMT's hand and twisted his
wrist. Conley, 28, kept twisting
despite protests from the EMT,
police said.
Afterward, Conley tried bit-
ing the EMT and spitting in his
face, but the man was able to
back away and the spit landed
on his leg instead, police said.
Conley, of 86417 Peeples
Road, Yulee is charged with bat-
tery on an emergency medical
technician and is being held at
Nassau County Jail on a borid of
$10,002.

Overdue rental
Police arrested a Jackson-
ville man Sunday afternoon for
failing to return a car two
months after he rented it,
according to an arrest report.
Park police said they were
performing a routine property
check at Amelia Island State
Park before 4 p.m. when they
came across a silver Hyundai
sedan. The vehicle's tag came
back stolen out of Jacksonville,
they said.
The Hyundai had been rent-
ed Feb. 13 from Avis Rent a Car
at Jacksonville International
Airport by Eddie Dewon
Lawrence and was due to be
returnedF eb,, 2p, accorQngstp
the report ,, i .
After locating Lawrence, 25,
in the park, officers recovered
the car's keys and detained him,
police said. Records showed the
rental company attempted sev-
eral times to contact Lawrence,
including by certified letter, to
no avail, police said.
-- Lawrence told police he tried
to renew the contract several
times by phone, but was unable.
Avis officials told police no pay-
ments had been made beyond
the initial one and the car was
past due.
During an inventory of the
car before it was towed, police


found the contract confirming it
was due Feb. 20. Despite a
-strong odor of marijuana, police
found no drugs in the car, they
said.
Lawrence is charged with
failure to return leased proper-
ty greater than $300. He's being
held at Nassau County Jail on a
bond of $10,002.

talized Sunday afternoon after

taken to Shands Jacksonville
about 3:30 p.m. after his .44 cal-
iber handgun discharged while
he was holstering it, striking
him in the lower right leg. The
man and his wife told police it
was an accident.

This year the annual Interna-
tional Coin Collectors Association
will open it's doors to, the general
public. The five day coin show is
a unique .,pt',,Lrtiiit'. for anyone
that has coins, whether it's a single
coin or an entire collection. They
can meet with and sell directly to
the collector's club. Admission is
free and there is no obligation to
sell. The types of coins the collec-
tors are looking for include silver
dollars, half dollars, quarters and
dimes dated 1964 and before. Actu-


ally. the hualt dollars can date all the
way to 1970. The goveCrnment used
silver to make most 11. S, coinage
until 1965 when thcv started using
cheaper clad. Silver coins made be-
fore 1965 are made with 90 percent
silver and are worth many times
their face value because of today's
high silver market. Recently, silver
has been trading for about $32 per
oz. Five years ago, silver was just
over $4 per oz. This dramatic in-
crease has raised the price of these
silver coins dramatically. There-
fore, people that have these. coins
are selling them to take advantage
of the record high prices. During


WE WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH YOU!
WE WILL TREAT YOU FAIRLY AND HONESTLY


this five day event, those who have
coins they wish to sell will be able
to do just thit. Unlike selling your
coins at a pawvn shop or one o1 those
traveling "we buy anything" sales,
this show is operated by -. ,IlcI.i I
who pay much higher prices.
This show isn't just for silver
coins either. They are also inter-
ested in gold coins, paper curren-
cy, nickels and pennies too. The
United States government started
minting coins in 1792. If those
early coins are in good condition,
.they can be worth big money. For
instance, a 1792 silver dollar could
be worth as much as $20,000 if


it's the right one. Compare that to
a common wheat back penny from
the 1960's- still collectible but
only worth a few cents. Old paper
currency can be worth a lot too. A
common silver certificate is only
worth a couple of bucks but an
1890's 2', bill in excellent condi-
tion could be worth thousands. This
event is a place you can learn about
the coins and paper currency that
you have and a chance to sell di-
rectly to collectors.

NEWS IN BRIEF
'.TFF REPORT

Mary Childs was itazed at
thevalue'oftI e coin c...Ilesi:,.n
she had taken to the local coin
collectors' show. Mary's uncle
had collected coins through-
out his entire life.. Harry was
12 years old in 1965 when he
took an interest in coin collect-
ing. Going through his father's
pocket change became a daily
ritual.
That's around the time when
the government stopped using
silver to make coins and started
using the much cheaper clad.
Harry was intrigued by the sil-
ver coins-they were colder to
the touch than the newer clad
coins and they sounded differ-
ent when they clanked togeth-
er. Harry thought these silver
coins would eventually be taken
out of circulation and may be
worth something more than face
value some day. He was right.
Through thei i %ii-ic and much of
the seventies it was not uncom-
mon to find these silver coins in
pocket change. However, when
they made their way back to the
mint, they would be replaced
with the newer clad coins. The*
silver coins would be melted
down and gone forever.
Harry accumulated quite' a
collection over the years. The
silver coins he collected were
not very rare-in fact, they
were mostly heavily circulated
and, had common dates. But in
the past 4 years, silver has risen
to record high prices. Currently,
silver is trading for around $33
per oz. That makes coins dated
1964 and earlier worth many
times their face value.
Uncle Harry was right-
these coins were worth keeping.
Harry enjoyed collecting these
coins throughout his life and
now ha could do something spe-
cial for someone close to him.
Harry never had children of
his own, but was very close to
his brother's only child, Mary.
Mary had worked hard and was
very independent. She took ou't
student loans to get through col-
lege and had recently graduated.
She had just landed her first job
and was starting to build a life
for herself. Harry decided to
give his coin collection to Mary
and have her sell it to pay down
her student loans. At first, Mary
didn't accept the offer because
she wanted to do things on her
own, but Uncle Harry was pret-
ty persistent.
After separating the coins
by denomination and type,
Mary loaded up the coins and
headed to our coin show. After
a 'shlo rekistrati..'n Mary was
seated in front of one of the coin
experts. The volume of coins
Mary brought in prompted the
collector to summon the help
of two additional collectors.
After counting all the coins and
totaling them up, ($2374.75 in
face value alone) the offer was
inade: $37,996.00. Mary had to
ask the collector to repeat the
offer again. She started crying
tears of joy and said "SOLD!"
Neither she nor her uncle had
any idea that his collection was
worth that. much. The student
loans would be paid in full, with
money left over. It was a good
day for Mary...a very good day!

West Nassau edges Yulee 3-2 in 10 innings for crown


Pirates draw a

bye in tourney
BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Lady Hornets surren-
dered the District 4-4A crown.
Thursday, but not without a
fight.
West Nassau senior
Amanda Spencer scored the
game-winner in the 10th
inning to steer the top-seeded
Lady Warriors to a 3-2 win
over host Yulee. It was West
Nassau's first district crown
since the 2007 season.
"We worked very hard to
be No. 1 and we did not give
up in 10 innings," said
Randalyn Rogers, head soft-
ball coach at West Nassau
High School. "Yulee's pitcher,
Karla Beasley, threw very
well but we somehow man-
aged to score one more than
them in the end.
'This senior class had not
won a district championship
in their time here at West
Nassau. West Nassau has a
very rich history in softball,
so I told them we were on a
mission to put a trophy in the
trophy case and they bought
into it."
Yulee struck first with
sophomore Hayley Solomon
leading off with a double in
the first inning. Karla Beasley
sent her home with a hit to
center.
West Nassau answered
when sophomore pitcher
Morgan Williams doubled
and then scored on a hit by
senior Payton Grahdquest.
Beasley scored in the third
inning with her 10th home
run of the season to give
Yulee a 2-1 lead, which she
preserved in the bottom;
sending all three batters back
to the dugout.
Yulee threatened in the
fourth; eighth batter Audrey
Boren hit to left, Zoie .
Williams hit to third but
Yulee's courtesy runner was
thrown out advancing to third
to quash the Lady Hornets'
two-out rally.
Solombn singled in the top
of the fifth and Graison
Murray moved her around
the bases with a sacrifice
bunt. Beasley draws a base
on balls,,but Yulee left both
runners stranded.
West Nassau's Taylor
Swafford beats out a hit to
third in the bottom of the
inning. Ashton DiMaria's dou-
ble scores Swafford; the Lady
Warriors knot the score at 2-
2.
It was nip-and-tuck until
the 10th inning; West Nassau
boasted back-to-back hits by
DiMaria, Williams and
Spencer. Spencer knocked in
the game-winner in the bot-
tom of the 10th.
Both teams advanced to
the regional tournament.
West Nassau hosted
Episcopal Tuesday in the first
round of the regional play-
offs; Yulee traveled to Bolles.
Yulee defeated Fernandina
Beach 16-0 April 17 in the dis-
trict semifinal.

Journey Team One captures Family Driven season crown


The Journey Church Team One
won the 2012 Family Driven Softball
League championship Saturday.
Nine teams took to the fields at
Springhill Baptist Church in what
was called, "Championship
Saturday."
The task for Team One was a
tough one; since the inception of the
league, Celebration Baptist Church
helda stranglehold on the the cham-
pionship tournament. This is the
second year the league has used the
tournament as a way of crowning
the league champion. Before that
the tournament was called "The
Sons of Thunder Softball
Tournament."
This is the first time in the short
four-year history of the league that
Celebration Baptist Church has not
won the crown.
During the regular season
Journey Team One was defeated by
Celebration Team Two, which *
forced Team One to the second seed
going into the playoffs. Team One


took to the field by storm and, as in
their first match, defeated Five
Points Baptist Church 22-0. Short
stop Matt Thornton led the charge,
hitting -In. .1 -.1i -ihree with a triple, a
double and a home run. In the sec-
ond outing, Team One continued thce
* .n. l,, ch d, ,f ,lin L' SI i thi ll
Baptist Church 18-3. Chris DeBerry
led the victors, going two-for-four
with a triple and a double. ,
This led to the rematch against
Celebration 'Team 'Two. Just a week
ago, Celebration came from behind
in the lii.,l inning of the game to
defeat Journ'y Tleam One 12-11.
That game proved to be one of the
best games (if the year; there was
just one error committed between
the two teams.
But this time it was Team One
that came to bai in the last inning,
scoring four runs to win the contest
11-10. In this game as well, there
was just one error committed.
In the regular season it was hus-
band-and-wife team of Courtney and


Robert I less who led the charge for
C(. i., : i. But this tim e it x .:i, Ih.
husband-and-wife team of David and
Suzanne Bryant from Journey One
who led the way to victory. D)avid
Bryant hit f.- ,1ii ,I . ,i '.. ili a hom e
run while Suzanne Bryant hit two-
for-three for Team One.
This forced Celebration to play
the surprise team of the tournament
for the right to play in the champi-
onship game. Journey Teain Two.,
which posted an 8-5 record in the
regular season, lost in lthe first game
on Championship Saturday and bat-
I led back, winning four straight
games before taking on Celebration.
The team Yulee Overflow, which
defeated Journey Two earlier in tihe
day 8-t6, was annihilated by Teaim
Two on their climb back into tihe
race, 2&-6. Aired Teain Two, which
had already played five games oni
the day, could not contain (lie power-
ful Celebration bats and had to settle
for third place as Celebration won
the affair 19-6.


The championship game then
became a rematch of the 2011 chamr-
pionship in which C. 1.i ;ili, .n won.
With that game still fresh on the
minds of I. Journey players, they
knew they had to strike quick and
early; they did, putting up nine runs
in the first inning.
Just like for Journey One in the
2011 championship, it was now
Celebration that was feeling the
fatigue of (he day. It seemed as if
Team )One climbed on the big shoul-
ders 1 ..1 i. 11., Derek Bellar. It
was Bellair who slid into home last
year trying to spark a (ired Journey
team to victory and was called out
on a very close play at home. Thiis
time it seamed as if Bellar was not
about to allow Celebration to get
back into tlie game, making several
great plays in the field of play as well
as superb base running.
For the'l 'st of tihe game, each
timnie Celebration would score a few
runs, journey Team One would
answer. The nine-run deficiency put


on the board in the first inning was
the deciding factor as Journey won
the championship by nine runs, 21-
12.
Bellar hit two-for-three in the
championship followed by Carring-
ton Fussell, who hit four-for-four.
The most valuable player's for the
tournament were both from Team
One. For the ladies, it was Suzanne
Bryant, who hit five-for-nine and
scored six runs on the day. Chris
DeBerry was the men's MVP; he hit
8-for-13 with two doubles and a
home run and scored 12 runs.
Members of J', iI nI y Team One
are Brandon Taylor, Colleen Trotter,
Suzanne and David Bryant, Carring-
ton Fussell, Clarence Jones, Derek
Bellar, Tymira Roberts, Matt and
Kaysley Thornton, Chris DeBerry,
Darryl Bellar, Blaine Dickinson,
Brock D)ickinson, Tony Thornton
and Damon Rowland.

Tiger Woods's swing coach,

job to do, and I get it," Foley said last week
on XM Sirius radio. "I think things have got
to slow down, and it has got to stop, the daily
referendums and the criticism." Woods tied
for 40th at the Masters, his worst finish there
as a pro, yet most of the attention was on
how he kicked his club after missing a tee
shot on the 16th hole of the second round.

-. One of the many problems that can cause the amateur golfer's iron and wood shots
,. to go offline is something not thought about often. Having too hard or too soft of a grip
could be a key to not hitting your shots on the correct line. If your grip is too light, when
you make the backswing, your wrists may go into a cupped position. This will result in
3 H an open dubface from the top of your backswing all the way through impact. The
simple solution is to slightly strengthen your grip to let the clubface be more square at
impact.,If you tend to hook the ball, that means that your clubface is dosed at impact and could be
dosed at the top of your backswing. As a result, you will need to relax your grip a little bit, allowing
the dub to make a smooth transition from the backswing through impact.

WIDN:SIDAY. APRIl. 25, 2012/NEws-LEADER


Grouper king of the bottom


grouper season
reopens May 1 ith"
a bag limit of one
per person and minimum size
limit of 24 inches. Grouper
season has been closed both
in state and federal waters
since Jan. 1.
Captains Will Stubbs and
Billy McFadden are organiz-
ing a grouper fishing tourna-
ment on opening'day, proper-
ly named "King of the
Bottom" grouper fishing tour-
nament.
The newly formatted fish-
ing tournament will get under
way April 30 with a mandato-
ry captain's meeting at the
Dog Star Tavern beginning at
6 p.m. Entry fee is $200 per
boat with 50 percent of the
entry fees going to the heavi-
est aggregate weight of up to
two gag grouper. Second
place is 30 percent of the
entry fees and third place is
20 percent of the entry fees.
Theie is an optional $75
entry fee per boat for the .
largest grouper oi the day and
an optional $50 per boat entry
- fee for the largest cobia of the
tournament. The tournament
will be held from the
Fernandina Harbor Marina
with a check-out staging from
the green No. 1 buoy located
at the footsteps of historic
Fort Clinch. Check-out
begins at 7 a.m. All fishing
boats must fish within 25 nau-
tical miles from shore. Weigh-
in takes place from 3-4:30
p.m. at the Fernandina .
Harbor Marina.
For information, call
Stubbs at (904) 557-4800 or
McFadden at 583-0818.
Deep trolling with the aid
of downriggers, 50-pound
trolling tackle and fishing
reels loaded with 50-pound
braided fishing lines gives the
angler an, upper hand when
large grouper are caught
from their deep water habitat.
A six-foot section of 80-
pound fluorocarbon shock
leader is attached to the
braided fishing line, using an
80-pound, black barrel swivel.
Finally, a loop knot is used to
tie the shock leader to the
plug. The reel's drag is adjust-
ed to the full position.
With this setup, once the
grouper hits the plug, the
angler has the advantage of
working large grouper away
from the dangers of wrecks
or big ledges. One of the
more successful plugs when
trolling deep for grouper is
the "Husky Rapala" in the
orange or chartreuse color
patterns.
"Deep jigging" is also a
deadly fishing tactic for
.Amelia Island grouper. A four-
ounce yellow bt'cktail jig
works best when, tipped with


.a chunk of
squid( or cut
bait. Jigs can
.. also be
,- tipped with
live finger
mullet or
cigar min-
nows. A fair-
OUTDOORS ly stiff spine
Ow R baie ning rod or
-. special pur-
leruyLacois pose deep
jigging rod
works best.
Most fishermen prefer the
new braided fishing lines in
the 20- to 30-pound class so
they can feel the jig working
along the bottom and fish
strikes too. A six-foot length
of 80-pound fluorocarbon
leader is also used between
the jig and the terminal fish-
ing line to promote more
strikes. Drop the jig dowli to
the bottom and jig the lure
slowly, just above the bottom
and hang on.
Amelia Island grouper can
be taken also while fishing
with fresh local squid cut
baits and live baits fished
dead on the bottom with stan-
dard bottom fishing tackle.
One of the more popular
hooks includes a 5/0 to 7/0
kahle hook. The size of the
hook is determined by the
size of the baits.
One of the more popular
bottom fishing setups in-
cludes a double hook rig,
where a live minnow is
attached to the top hook and
a chunk of local squid is
attached to the bottom hook.
The double-hook setup is
made with 80-pound fluoro-
carbon leader and the termi- "
nal fishing tackle is 50-pound
class. A six- to 10-ounce bank
sinker is used to get grouper
baits on the bottom.
Drifting over bottom struc-
tures is a preferred fishing
tactic for Amelia Island
grouper. However, when,
winds and currents are
strong, drop the anchor and
fish dead over the structure.
..Once a large gag.)-.. 1ii'. r
takes a bait or lure' seasoned
grouper fishermen will set
the hook hard and apply a
strong pumping action to the
rod tip to disorientate the
hooked grouper. This deadly
grouper-fighting technique
often keeps grouper from
swimming back to the ledge
or wreck and snagging your
fishing line.
The Nassau Sport Fishing
Association will present tro-
phies and cash awards to wih-.
ners of the 2012 Drum Tourn-
ament at 7 p.m. today at Ten
Acres. John Jones took first
place with his 81-pound black
drum; Mike Scott second, 74.
pounds; and Capt. Tony
Peeples third, 66.14 pounds.

cations. Annual media
coverage in 2011 was 9.4
million media exlxsures,
as measured by circula-
tion or hit rate of each
publication/medium.
The extension's web-
site has played a signifi-
cant role in disseminat-
ing and complementing
information shared at the


Landscape Matters sessions. Website hits
have produced a 41 percent increase over
the last three years, going from 65,879 per
year in 2009 to 93,073 in 2011.
The effectiveness of the Landscape
Matters classes was reflected in the fact
that 97 percent of attendees stated in post
evaluations they learned new, .valuable
information they would use and share with
others. Seventy-eight percent stated they
would adopt one or more of the FFL prac-
tices in their own landscapes.


Jordi's second award is the FACAA
Communications Award for her publica-
tion, "Trees Are Nature's Air
Conditioners," published in the Florida
Gardener magazine, a bi-monthly publica-
tion reaching 18,000 subscribers. A
11 photos published with the article were
taken by Jordi at the Demonstration
Gardens.
A modified version of the article also
appeared in the News-Leader.
"Being recognized by your peers is
always a special honor. To have one's col-
leagues examine your programs and award
them the 'best-in-state' is wonderful. Our
extension staff and volunteers work very
hard to deliver quality, relevant program-
ming to our citizens," stated Jordi. *
