ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City commissioners have agreed 4-
1 to put out a request for qualifications
for architectural and engineering serv-
ices to expand the Fernandina Beach
branch of the Nassau County Library
System. Commissioner Charles
Corbett voted against.
The May 1 resolution originally
allowed for a transfer of funds and a
budget amendment of $85,000.
Commissioners agreed to delete that
s.,:ti..rn of the resolution mainly
because Corbett was reluctant to com-
mit that amount of money to the proj-
ect at this time.
. According to Interim City Manager
Dave Lott, a committee will evaluate
the requests for qualifications to be
sent out this week. That committee is
made up of Vice Mayor Jeffrey Bunch,
City Controller Patti Clifford,
Maintenance Director Glenn
Semanisin, a representative from the
Nassau County Libraries and a repre-
sentative from the Friends of the
Library.
"At this point, if we go out for the
RFQ, it does not commit us to spend
any money," Lott said after the nr, ,.- 14ig
"The city commission would have to
authorize the actual construction."
} The future of the Fernandina Beach
Library has been. at issue for years

Manager


candidate

lost job
MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
One of the finalists for city manag-
er of Fernandina Beach just lost his
job for what was called "egregious fail-
ure" of performance.
Gene Knaga, senior compliance
analyst for the Nassau County Clerk of
Courts, was fired April 23 by Clerk of
Courts/Comptroller John Crawford,
who wrote Knaga that day that he
would be paid through May 4 "with
today being your last day in the office."
That followed a letter from Deputy
Clerk of Court Jerry Greeson to
Crawford on April 20 that said Greeson
had lost confidence in Knaga. Greeson
wrote that he learned April 17 that
Knaga "had failed' to cause a $20,000
payment due from October 2011 to be
executed. That failure has further solid-
ified my loss of confidence in his pro-
fessional performance. Such an egre-
gious failure will not be tolerated in
this office."
Crawford had written Greeson on
April 17 that failure to properly dis-
burse the payment "could have huge
negative consequences. It is unac-
ceptable and will not be tolerated going
forward .... I think this is one more
strong indication that a reorganization
is imminently necessary to carry out
the duties of this office."
Knaga acknowledged the error on
April 17, writing Crawford and Greeson
that "this slipped through the cracks
and this is the first time since October
it has come up. I'm surprised it didn't

LIBRARY
Continuedfrom 1A
because its space and services
have been deemed unsuitable,
and the city and county share
the responsibility of maintain-
ing it.
The Nassau County
Commission made a commit-
ment last year to set aside
$600,000 toward a new library
within city limits, and the city
has committed to the same
amount. While the city owns
the building where the library
is located and contributes
about $50,000 a year to its
operations, the county oper-
ates -the library system
throughout the county.
Commissioners last year
considered purchasing a
building on Centre Street
for a new library, but local
businessman Don Shaw
bought it before an offer was
made. Commissioners have
since decided to expand and
renovate the existing library
site.
Lott noted city officials
were attempting to schedule a
meeting with the Nassau.
County Commission. One
topic to be discussed, he said,
would be getting a re-com-
mitment of the $600,000 from
the county for the library ren--
ovation. Lott noted county
Manager Ted Selby had indi-
cated the money was still set
aside, but that county officials

were eager to see specific
plans for the library project.
"Our hope is that the coun-
ty will see we are moving for-
ward with this," Lott said.
Lott said the $85,000 for
architectural/design services
for the library renovation
would come out of a $1.8 mil-
lion loan the city secured last
year for the Forward,
Fernandina strategic down-
town waterfront project. He
said preliminary plans call for
an expansion of 5,500 addi-
tional square feet to the north
of the current library, located
on North Fourth Street The
rest of the project will be for
renovations of 8,000 square
feet of the existing structure.
He said he expected the
expansion and renovation to
cost about $1.6 million.
Clifford noted franchise
fees set aside to pay for the:
loan were "not as high as bud-
geted" because the' fee
.increase approved bycom-
missioners was not raised as
high as was anticipated.
City commissioners last
year approved the Forward
Fernandina strategic plan that
included $6 million in
improvements' to the city
waterfront, downtown, South
Eighth Street and other areas
within the city. Last November
they approved a loan of up to
$1.88 million to commence
Phase I of the plan.

City, Coe settle lawsuit


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City commissioners gave
unanimous approval May 1 for
the city to pay former Ferna-
ndina Beach Police Capt. Jim
Coe $25,400 to settle a lawsuit
that was filed last July.
Coe .sued the city for
$31,000 for 650 hours of unpaid
accumulated sick leave after
his retirement in January 2011.
In a legal complaint, Coe's
attorney Michael Mullin
claimed the city arbitrarily
interpreted an ordinance "sole-
ly to deny (Coe) his sick leave
and reduce the city's financial
obligations," and that Coe "was
'never advised, verbally or in
writing, that he was not entitled
to cumulative sick leave."


According to.a settlement
agreement, the city "denies
any wrongdoing or unlawful
acts" regarding the case, and
that Coe's and the city's
"respective interests would
best be served by completely
resolving ... disagreements and
controversies between them
without additional delay."
According to Interim City
Manager Dave Lott, funds will
come from a special account
set aside to pay for such set-
tlements, and not from contin-
gency or reserve funds. Lott
noted a similar account is avail-
able for worker's compensa-
tion claims.
Before his retirement last
year, Coe had served in the
city police department for 16
years.

- "I don't think it's eliminat-

"There's a couple spots
where they could play (in the

Corbett said.
"The more we. limit it, the
more we are at risk for a poten-
tial challenge," Bach said.
"I just don't see anyone chal-
lenging it," Vice Mayor Jeffrey
Bunch said. "What's there to
challenge? We're letting them
play in three places."
Commissioners voted unan-
imously to amend the ordinance
to allow street performers (with
permits) in' various parks
around the city, including at
Main Beach and Central Park,
. as well as parks downtown.

parking concerns


like to see more shared park-
ing downtown, to allow for more
mixed use. "i'd like to see this
move forward," he said. "She's
doing everything except living
above the business."
Senior Planner Kelly Gibson
said later that 229 S. Eighth St.
would be the first contributing
property in the historic district
to have its zoning changed to
mixed-use. She said she rec-
ommended the zoning change
because it is suitable for the
nature and type of structure on
the property She noted Cormier
had plans to add a small parking
area facing Cedar Street after
some overgrown foliage is
removed from a small yard with-
in the property.
Gibson also said the Com-
munity Development Depart-
ment had been looking at a pos-
sible overlay in the area similar
to the Community Redevelop-
ment Area along the city watei-
front, that would address spe-
cific redevelopment needs of the
Eighth Street corridor.
Gibson noted most objec-
tions to the zoning change came-
from surrounding property own-
ers who were concerned about,

"There is also a concern (by
neighbors) that future owners
(of the property) may not be as
good for the neighborhood,"
Gibson said. She also said park-
ing on the surrounding streets
is not illegal and there is suffi-
cient right-of-way, but that
streets can be somewhat nar-
rowed by parallelparking.
Vice Mayor Jeffrey Bunch
said at the meeting that he did-
n't have a problem with Cormier
having a business or living at
the property but that "there
needs to be a separation
between residential and com-
mercial." He also complained
that "every house on the west
side of Eighth Street was (resi-
dentia) when I was a kid."
"The era (the house) was

Renovated clubhouse opens at Long Point


The Amelia Island Club has opened its newly ren-
ovated clubhouse at Long Point. By taking advan-
tage of its natural surroundings, the new clubhouse
is reflective of the premiere golf course location.
The entrance to the clubhouse sports a two-sided
stacked stone fireplace which creates a cozy
ambiance. The large mahogany built-in trophy cabi-
net displays tournament trophies won, yet leaves
plenty of room for future winners.
The dining room provides a view out windows at
Long Point's spectacular ninth green and fairway.
The decor is knotty alder pine mahogany and copper
throughout. In addition, there is a private dining
room for smaller special events that carries the same
d&cor as the dining room.
Long Point's mahogany and copper octagon bar is
distinctive with its pointed ceiling and enormous sky-
light compass. The windows are large and the view
is open to the ninth fairway and green.
For those members who enjoy the outside expc-
rience, the clubhouse has a screened-in porch that
includes tables, chairs and a two-sided gas fireplace.
The concrete paver courtyard is easily accessible
and has umbrella table seating.
The Amelia Island Club is A private member-owned
club that offers 54 holes of championship golf, two
spectacular clubhouses, tennis and fitness center and
many social activities for all ages. For more infor-
mation concerning The Amelia Island Club, go to

the first quarter of 2012 com-
pared to the first quarter of

dominiums did not fare as
0 well, declining at a rate of 44.4
percent for the same period.
Closed sales of single-family
residential properties posted,
a 2.1 percent gain quarter
over quarter. Sales of condo-
miniums were off 47.6 per-
cent.

Seeking

The old movie was like a
family scrapbook of 8mm film
clips from Mel Fisher's quest
for buried treasure off
Florida's coast.
It provided a view of the
past with the legendary

.. .. ing gold -

Fc ly a glimpse

S for Amelia
Research &
Recovery,
LLC. The
.. local freas-
STEVE'S ure hunting
MAl ET 'company
PLACE hosted 20
PLACE people last
...---- week to
Steve Nicklas watch the
film of
Fisher's first major discovery
off Fort Pierce in the 1960s.
"We're getting reAdy to do
the same thing, I hope," says
Doug Pope, the manager of
operations of Amelia
Research.
; One of those in'attendance
stood out from the others it
was Mel Fisher's son, Kane.
The younger Fisher now
works for Amelia Research as
the captain of the company's
high-tech, three-legged, treas-
ure-seeking vessel.
The technology used today
in treasure hunting dwarfs
what Mel Fisher had. HQw-
ever, with a dogged initiative
and a steadfast belief in his
calling, Fisher established his
reputation and then elevated
himself to celebrity status
with the discovery of the
Atocha's wreckage years later.
Pope plans to show a more
current filmhn of Fisher's discov-
ery oftbe famed Atocha in the
next couple of weeks. The
Atocha's treasure was the
motherload that made Fisher
rich and famous.
The informal gatherings at
Amelia Research's headqluar-'
ters at 1335 S. Eighth St., hap-
pen most Fridays, and are
open to the public. Some peo-
ple stop by to check out the
gold coins and the encrusted
cannon and other artifacts;
others seek information as
prospective investors.
Amelia Research is cur-
rently offering stock at $6 per
shard to investors, and is also
issuing 6.00 percent convert-
ible notes secured by the com-
pany's vessel (valued at more
than $2 million). The notes
will help to pay off prior notes
that are maturing, while the
stock proceeds will help fund
operations.
Pope says the first item on
the company's agenda this
spring is to revisit the sites
just off Amelia Island where
the San Miguel's wreckage is
believed to be buried. The San
Miguel was one of 11 Spanish
galleons that left Havana
loaded with treasure in 1715 -
they all sank along the Florida
coast in a violent storm.
"We're going to continue
the search for the San Miguel
off of Amelia Island," Pope
proclaims.
Part of the benefit of
investing in Amelia Research
is taking part in its activities.
Investors who are certified
scuba divers can join in some
of the treasure-hunting
efforts, scouring the ocean's
bottom. Others can board the.
impressive vessel, the Polly-L,
to cook or clean or just check
out its insides. "Just enjpy the
adventure," Pope says.
"There's a lot of it."
Amelia Research has
weathered plenty of rough
economic times. In its proud
12-year history, the company
has endured the economic
fallout from the World Trade
Center attack by terrorists in
the early 2000s. More recent-
ly, the financial crisis has
taken its toll on any U.S. com-
pany, public or private..
The addition of Kane
Fisher has infused new hope
and promise to Amelia
Research. The younger Fisher
knows the highs and lows of
treasure hunting. He was


onboard to find the Atocha's
treasure, but lost one of his
brothers during the hunt.
"He gives the company a
shot in the arm," Pope says;
"with his experience and capa-
bility."

advisor with a major U.S. firm

Rhoden runs for sheriff


Garland "Bubba" Rhoden, a
local deputy, has announced he
is.a candidate for Nassau
County Sheriff.
Other Republican candi-
dates to succeed Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves are Chris
Hartley, Bill Leeper, Carlos Slay
and Steve Whitley.
"After careful consideration,
I have decided that the citizens
of Nassau County deserve a
genuine choice in this election
for the office of sheriff,"
Rhoden said in his announce-
ment, adding, "I am running
for sheriff because I have a love
and passion for Nassau County
and law enforcement. I am ask-
ing the citizens of Nassau to
devote their trust in me ahd to
actively assist me in building
our future through a shared
vision. J bring experience, ener-
gy and inspiration to the fore-
front. I will lead the sheriff's
i tic,- in i, an exciting new era.
Now is the time for us to unite,
to have character and integrity
in our community."
Rhoden said he was 10 years
old when his family moved to


Callahan and
he has grown
up in Nassau
County. "I
attended local
S schools, par-
ticipated in
sports and
Rhoden graduated
from West
Nassau High
School. I went to work part-time
at the age of 15 'pd have been
active in the coitmunity ever
since he said.
Rhoden attended Lake City
Law Enforcement Academy "at
night and on the weekends due
to my business as a state of
Florida certified building con-
tractor. Operating such a busi-
ness required me to negotiate
contracts, figure costs, setting
budgets, subcontractors and
working with engineers and
architects. This also required
working closely with state and
local government. This gave
me a great business and public
record as to dealing with local
and state agencies. In other
words, I am a 'hands on' CEO."

"I have been there on the
community streets and in your
homes as a deputy on patrol
when law enforcement was
your need," Rhoden said. "I
have worked the neighbor-
hoods where I was a K-9 officer
detecting drugs, working cases
of burglaries and domestic
problems. Serving 'where you
are' in 'our community.' I am
now an active detective in the
criminal investigations divi-
sion."
Rhooden said he has over
seven years diversified experi-
ence within law enforcement
and over 15 years in diversified
business experience in Nassau
County.
He has been 'married to
Kelly Armstrong Rhoden for
just under 20 years and they.
have a married daughter, a
grandson, one daughter attend-
ing college this year and three
more daughters attending local
schools. "Needless to say we
have an important vested
interest in Nassau County," he
said.
"The sheriff's office must
have honesty, integrity and
transparency throughout the
leadership of the entire depart-
ment. I have these qualities and
this, will be a priority in our
sheriff's office," he said..

Johnson. seeks School Board seat


Russell L Johnson has filed
as a candidate for the District
4 seat on the Nassau County
School Board.
Other candidates who have
filed to seek that seat,are Kim-
berly Fahlgren, who was ap-
pointed to the seat last year by
Gov. Rick Scott after longtime.
board member Jim Adams
resigned, Tracy Range-Ketchie
and Richard L. Williams.
Johnson said he is a lifelong
resident of Hilliard except forr
three years he served as coun-
ty director for the Department
of Agriculture in Sumter-Citrus
counties.
He married Nancy Carroll
Johnson 34 years ago and they
have two sons, Jake 24, who
attended Okefenokee Tech-
nical College, and Kyle, 19, a
student at the University of
West Florida. Both attended
elementary school in Callahan
and graduated from Hilliard '
Middle-Senior High School.
Nancy Johnson has'spent her
entire 29-year teaching career
at Callahan Intermediate.
"Like many, I am a product
of our Nassau County School
system as. were my parents
Russell Leori and Betty Wood
Johnson, and siblings Carole,
Nancy, Betty Sue, and Calvin,"
Johnson said in his campaign
aninui> ,_-..nit. He graduated
from West Nassau High School


in 1972 and
was active in
vocational
agriculture
and 'Future
Farmers of
America.
"This was
Johnson the begin-
ning of my
passion for
cattle rearing, which later
assisted with', college tuition,"
he said.
Johnson earned a B.A. in
political science and public
administration fromit the Univer-
sity of North Florida in 1976.
Upon graduation he worked
for a short time in the family
business, Buchanan and John-
son Fuel Oil Co. in Fernandina.
He began work in 1977 with
the U.S. Department *bf
Agriculture, administering fed-
eral farm programs at the coun-
ty level. "Working my way up to
a Florida State Conservations
Program Specialist for the
Farm Service Agency (FSA)
in Gainesville, my role broad-
ened to ensure that policies,
procedures, and program
responsibilities were in accor-
dance to federallaws, statutes
and regulations. This included
administering conservation
programs statewide, dispens-
ing millions of allocations to
qualified counties per fiscal


year, conducting administra-
tive training, validating account
funding, providing technical
and resource support to coun-
ties and leading program train-
ing for all state employees,"
Johnson said.
He also chaired the state
FSA Grievance Committee
where formal grievances were
filed and processed. "I consid-
er the foundations perfected
in me through my 34 and a half
years of hard work, profes-
sional excellence and
leadership meets the criteria
for the'position I seek," he said.
"Believing that education is
the backbone of our society
and the only hope for a child's
better tomorrow, I welcome
the opportunity to work for the
success of our.students by
bringing to the district knowl-
edge of following policy and
procedures which will enhance
effective operations, expertise
with monetary allocations
which will assist with budget
distribution, being perceptive
to all concerns, which is keen
to understanding, and being
available for matters and
instruction as it pertains to the
betterment of our schools. I
promise as a service-oriented
individual to bring integrity as
a way of life to a position dedi-
cated to the enhancement of
all stakeholders."

Split city c

was in the garden the other day tending
my tomatoes when a friend stopped by to
talk politics. "Ever seen such a mess?" my
friend asked, shaking his head. "I mean a.
split commission, really split, can't even agree
on how to hire a city manager much less who
to hire."
"Well, I really don't think it's a mess," I
answered, continuing the task of breaking off
unwanted "suckers" from between the stems of
the tomato plants. "I've seen and heard all this
before, many times, and things always work
out."
My somewhat puzzled friend, obviously
unsatisfied with my analysis, continued his
head-shaking and said, "You might have seen
split commissions before, even been on a few,
but I don't think you've seen anything like this.
They can't even agree on procedure."
The "suckers" successfully removed, my
friend and I retired to a couple of lawn chairs
beneath 'the magnolia tree to talk about the
messiness of the democratic process, local gov-
ernment, split commissions and political agen-
das. Life was good.
Let's acknowledge something: we do have a
split commission,-a decidedly split commission.
That's nothing new, though, we've had'multiple
split commissions throughout much of the
resort era that period of time since 1972 in
which our community has struggled to define
itself. Split commissions are the rule when the
community itself is split as to what it will look
,like, feel like and live like 10, 20, 50 years from
now.
Understanding the above, is this split com-
mission different from those previous? In some
ways yes, some ways no I mean. an llf thie
past.split commissions have divided tlhem-
i selves along philosophic il lirni, dif' k-nril


commission is messy


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Sailing ships
In a time when boats (ships) are
propelled by nuclear power, bunker.
oil, diesel fuel and even jet fuel; it is
wonderful to see true trans-ocean wor-
thy sailing ships. We, -and all those,
patiently waiting for our turn to walk,
the weather decks, were thrilled to see
the French Tricolor flying from the
gaff and the American flag flying hon-
orably from the starboard, forward
spar. Also flying from the bowsprit was
a flag bearing the cross of Lorraine, the
symbol of the Free French Naval
Forces flown since World War II..
Both the Etoile and the Belle Poule
are extraordinarily maintained and
handsomely adorned with decorative
rope work in, the truest tradition of
sailors ("Bienvenue," May 2). In spite
of the heat and the bright sun on a vir-
tually cloudless day, all hands were
enthusiastic and pleasedto answer any
que .tion- ,. p ,,ii.idl ; lI .. i, ,. off
their sloops.
All politics aside, this is what human
interaction should be: people of one
language and culture sharing with peo-
ple of a different language and culture.
We would like to thank all of our res-
idents who acted on a terrific idea and
who' drew these wonderful ships-to
our shore. A.hearty "well done" and
thank you to the hosts and. sponsors
who showed these sailors a marvelous
taste of Amelia Island hospitality. And,
a special thank you (merci) to the fine
men and women for braying the seas
and tying up in the port of Fernandina
and forgraciously allowing us to walk
the same teak decks they do:.
We offer all hands a.heart-felt Bravo
Zulu (a job well done) and we wish the
officers and crew of both ships fair
winds and following, seas.

Support local businesses
I. had a wonderful experience at
Staples recently with a problem I was
having with my laptop. A young man
named Ryan was eager to listen and
help me solve my dilemma. I have
found this with most of our island busi-
nesses, which saves me a trip to
Jacksonville. I feel we should always
. support our local retailers as well as
our wonderful hospital and doctors.
Amelia Island is a delightful place to
live. Thanks to all of you.

Who's payingyour bill?
Did you know that when you dine
out and slip out without paying your bill
that your server gets stuck paying it
out of his/her tips? Now I don't know
if that is the case everywhere but it
sure is where my daughter works!
Servers make less than $5/hour base
salary on average and rely on their
tips to make the majority of their pay.
ServiFg is a difficult job no matter how
easy it looks from the chair you are
sitting in. Servers work hard to treat
you with good cheer and a smiling face
(no matter how many times you send
them back for something). If the
kitchen screws up your food, it is not
their fault they don't, work in the
kitchen. If your server is genuinely
concerned if your dining experience
goes awry and attempts to correct the
problem then they are doing all that is


within their power and shouldn't be
punished by you by leaving no tip (they
did their job) or even worse stiffing
on the bill entirely. The business does-
n't "eat" that loss, the server does and
walks home with virtually no money at
all.
So next time you are not satisfied
with your meal, talk to a manager, go
online and leave a scathing review,
don't eat there again -just don't leave
your bill for the server to pay! They
work hard enough for their money and
shouldn't have to treat you to your
meal.

Too hot for dogs
-If-people were really in tune with the
animals we call our pets we wouldn't
subject our furry friends to the sultry
heat and humidity we experience most
every year at the Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival; this year was no
exception.
I am a pet owner and the first one
to jump on the bandwagon for cruising
with my pet alongside, but only when
it makes sense. Help me to understand
what drives us tobring our dogs, birds,
snakes (yes, I said snakes) and other
pets to an island bursting with over
100,000 people in 92-degree heat with,
the sun beating down on our little bean-
ies '
People can make a choice to get in
the shade, wear sunscreen, a hat or
visor but our pets are subjected to our
craziness to carry them or leash them
alongside on steamy asphalt and con-
crete that burns their little pad-feet. I
couldn't help but notice one big dog
with saddle bags that straddled his/her
furry body. Could that have been
drinks and various items for the owner
who didn't want to carry stuff so, tag,
Fido was it!
Hey, may I suggest you take off
your shoes and walk barefoot for a
couple of hours as you visit the booths
and try to stay cool. Yeah, right! If you
cross the railroad tracks and touch the
rails you will see for yourself how cruel
it may be for the animals to walk the
same unhappy trail some traveled that
2012 Shrimp Festival day.
While the Shrimp Festival is always
a great outing and the business gen-
erated for our little Island, shops and
kiosks bursting with amazing artwork,
jewelry, pottery, etc., is great, let's plan
on leaving our furry friends home next
year in a cool condo where they will
remain healthy, safe and certainly
happy. After all, it is a shrimp and art
festival, not "Best in Show."

Unhappy dogs
I am an avid dog lover and love hav-
ing my dog with mne as often as possi-
ble, however, the Shrimp Festival
would not be the appropriate place. It
was unbelievably hot and I-saw so
many dogs that just didn't look like
they were enjoying it as iruch as their
two-legged owners! I saw dogs in baby
strollers, panting their little hearts out,
I saw dogs being carried by owners,
dogs with backpacks and dogs strug-
gling with their owners to find what
little shade they could. It was a very sad
sight. There are times when dogs just
want to be dogs and lay around at
home. A crowded, hot day looking at
art is not a dog's view of a good time.

Shrimp Festival parking,
I think that some organizations are
getting a bit greedy on what space they
have for parking. Some organizations
take up room that they don't get close
to filling, others have their land taken
away by other organizations and some
others need more land because cars
want to park thpre, and not anywhere
else. This happened with one when
the lot got full on Saturday. They
extended their boundaries to an area I
that wasn't being used. The issue is
still pending but this issue needs to be
fixed.

National Nurses Week
Barnabas Center provides services
to Nassau County residents experi-"
encing crisis situations. Our programs
include operating a crisis center and,
food pantry, Samaritan medical pro-
gram, low-cost dental program and the
New to You resale store. Barnabas
Center recently celebrated 25 years of
service in Nassau County.
We could not 6ffer these services to
our community without dedicated staff
and volunteers. Barnabas Samari-tan
medical program provides urgent care
to uninsured, low income adult resi-
dents of Nassau County two evenings
a week. The doors are open at 1889 S.
14th St, Fernandina Beach, on Tuesday
and Thursday evenings starting at 4:45
p.m. What makes this effort possible is
the generosity of the physicians, physi-
cians assistants, nurses and adminis-
trative workers who volunteer their
time to serve those who might other-
wise go withoutmedical care. Our
nurses assess patients who come in
with urgent medical needs.
Uncontrolled diabetes and hyperten-
sion are the most frequent diagnoses.
In 2012, Barnabas Center also began
operating a Women's Clinic two
Wednesday evenings per month.
During this week set aside for spe-
cial recognition of nurses, we express
our gratitude for all nurses, and espe-
cially those who volunteer their time
serving the community at our
Samaritan medical program. A
"National Nurse Week" was first
observed in 1954 marking the 100th
anniversary of Florence Nightingale's
mission to treat wounded soldiers dur-
ing the Crimean War. Florence
Nightingale was famous for her exten-


: sive efforts as a nursing profession
pioneer.
Nursing is the largest of the health
care professions, and continues to
grow. More job growth is projected in
nursing than in any other occupation
between 2008 and 2018. But a conver-
gence df demographics an aging pop-
ulation of nurses who will soon leave
the workforce coupled with the
demands of an overall aging nation -.
will widen the gap between the supply
of nurses and the growing demand for
health care services. The public's high
regard for the profession, coupled with
nurses' education and skills, makes
them well positioned to help transform
the health care system into one that
places more emphasis on prevention,
wellness and coordination of care.
Currently, the Barnabas Samaritan
program has a critical need for nurses
and medical assistants who have the
desire to serve in volunteer role. This
could mean volunteering a few hours
once a month, a few hours every other
month or a few hours a week. Retired
nurses, nurses-who are currently
employed and medical assistants are all
eligible to volunteer and very much
needed. We invite you to join in the
effort of serving those living in our
community who have nowhere else to
turn for care other than the emergency
room.
Please call our program manager,
Mary Ann Blackall, for more informa-
tion at 261-7000, ext. 102, and visit our
website at www.barnabascenterinc.org.

Pupils political pawns?
The Nassau County School District
is now in the process of adopting social
studies textbooks for the coming six-
year cycle. A group of concerned citi-
zens has reviewed a number of the
books selected by the schools and the
school advisory councils. There is
cause for concern as our children's
textbooks are presenting an unbal-
anced, incomplete and often mislead-
ing view of Islam. At the same time
American history and the Judeo-
Christian principles upon which this
country was founded are being mar-
ginalized, trivialized and in certain
aspects omitted. This is not done by
accident! There is a concerted effort by
Islamic organizations, connected to
terrorist groups, to influence textbook
publishers, and they are succeeding.
In the presentation of Islam, only
positives are mentioned, often false
information at that. Information that
might not be viewed as favorable, such
as the aspects of Sharia law, is often


omitted. Islam is not only a "religion"
but a political movement It is a theoc-
racy, a form of government in which
God (Allah) is the. supreme ruler.
There is no separation of church and
state. For this reason Muslims are not
likely to assimilate into our culture and
respect the U.S. Constitution. The
Muslim Brotherhood openly states
that their goal is to institute Sharia law
in the United States. Our children are
being misled and primed to unwittingly
accept Sharia law in the future. I believe
that it is our responsibility to educate
them about the dangers of Islam and its
denigration of women and children,
as well as its intolerance for other reli-
'giohs.
While Islam is being glorified,
Christianity and the tremendous
impact it has had in our country's
founding is often purposely being
"watered down" in our own American
history textbooks. I believe that it is of
utmost importance that students have
a firm grasp in their knowledge of our
founding fathers and the principles
which have made our.country such an
exceptional nation.
By avoiding our responsibility in
giving our students factual and bal-
afced information we are doing them,
and our country, a gross injustice. They
are the future leaders of America.
Ibrahim "Dougie" Hooper, a national
spokesman for the Council on
American Islamic Relations (CAIR) (an
arm of the Muslim Brotherhood) has
said, "I wouldn't want to create the
impression that I wouldn't like the gov-
ernment of the.United States to be
Islamic sometime in the future. But
I'm not going to do anything violent to
promote that. I'm going to do it
through education." Our children are
being used .as political pawns!
If school boards across Florida do
not register their displeasure with the
textbook selections which have been
designated by the Florida Dephrtment
of Education, this situation will never
change and, in fact, get much worse.
There must be some push back so that
the DOE will refuse to buy textbooks
from.the publishers who are producing
misleading information for our stu-
dents. Will you take responsibility in
protecting our children?
The textbooks are available for
review in the school district office
building on Atlantic Avenue. If you
would like to comment on your impres-
sions, please attend the School Board
meeting at 6:30 Thursday. Citizens of
Nassau County may take the oppor-tu-
nity to address the school board.
Copies of textbook reviews will be avail-
able.

Fernandina; pro-Geirity) and
.""" -"w the Poynter-Filkoff camp
Ron Sapp (pro-Forward Fernandina;
anti-Gerrity). Complicating
matters is the uncommitted, undecided
Commissioner Bunch, floating around some-
where in the acrimonious atmosphere giving
no hint as to where his heart lies or on which
side he will land; land he will, inevitably, but he
keeps everyone guessing as to the camp.
So the rocks thrown into the still pond are
Forward Fernandina and the potential selec-
tion of Joe Gerrity as city manager and it's the
ripple effect from the latter that's currently
causing a lot of head scratching.
The smart money within the local political
class says that the original list of six cityman-
ager finalists has been winnowed down to two.
I know, there will be much protest at that
notion, but reality has a way of making myth
and magical thinking subordinate. Given this
fact, the realists among us are wondering why
the .commission is insisting on theater, the cha-
rade of a public meet-and-greet, complete with
, snacks, and rounds of interviews-.all to create
an air of respectability and profc-ssionalism.*
At the end of all of this commotion,. it is with


much hope that the commission hires one
of the two and they and the community can
move on-to issues and projects that beg our
attention:
What is our waterfront going to look like?
Will it be community or tourist-centered?
What is the budget going to look like?
Will the expenditure-revenue gap continue to
widen or will it be closed, somewhat,.by anoth-
er tax'inciease? Will the commission, again, try
to close the gap by dipping into reserves, or I
will they attack the expenditure side by reduc-
ing programs, projects and people?
Will the commission continue to ignore'
infrastructure limitations and alprove pro-
growth measures that increase population at
the expense of quality of life? Or will they final-
ly conclude that quality of life trumps every-
thing else, including money.
The split commission doesn't worry me, but
something else does. I'm worried that the man-
ager selection process has been and will be so
scarring, so brutal that commissioners will be
left bruised, battered and bleeding, personally
and individually, to the extent that they as a col-
lective body might hot recover and objective,
public interest decision and policymaking will
suffer. That's never happened before.
The charter, our local constitution, places
the city commission at the center of power and
decision-making. The charter assumes that the
commission, despite political, philosophical or
personal differences, will act in ways that put
the city and its people first. The charter
assumes that the mess my friend fears and.
described, amid my tomatoes will be made
straight by the commission.
I ir ust tI- people of Fernandina Beach will
demand what the chai-terassumes.
SRon Sapp is a fonner city commissioner:

Rubber meets road


PHOTOS BY PAT FOSTER-TURLEY/FORTHE NEWS-LEADER
Sheets of rubber hang out to dry in Southeast Asia, above. Latex sap from rubber
trees,is captured in cups, right.

ilk .7.


Rubber who would have thought that it
brings back memories? But for Bucko and I
it's full circle, the hallmark of our Asian adven-
tures. Nearly three decades ago we made our
first trip to Southeast Asia, when I was search-
ing for a field site to study Asian otters. We
were hosted by the Royal Thai Forest .
Department, and the Malaysia Department of
National Parks in a sort of competition
between the two countries to "land" the
research project. Cars and drivers, boats and
boatmen all were provided for us as we visited
one potential field site after another in both
countries, staying in primitive huts or camp-
ing.
But through it all, Bucko seemed most
intrigued by rubber. He marveled at the rub-
ber plantations we passed on the road, and we
stopped to inspect the trees more closely. We
saw the white latex sap dripping down slanted
cuts along the tree trunks into pottery cups to
catch it. We passed clotheslines hung with
drying sheets of rubber, ready for sale. It was.
exotic to us then, the idea that rubber sap
from these trees forms the tires we drive on.
One of our most prized souvenirs from.those
early Asian days was a pottery cup with a trace
of rubber in the bottom. The rubber remains
have since turned black, but still this cup
graces our knickknack shelf 29 years later.
So this trip, when we retraced some of our
path and ended up in Surat Thani, Thailand
and saw rubber plantations once again, the -
memories from our youthful days flooded
back. We paid our own way this time, buying
the services of cars and driver and boats and
boatmen, paid for with money that three
decades of professional experience granted us.
But those three decades also took their toll.
When-we traveled to a group of spartan
floating huts in a rain forest surrounded reser-
voir, we had no desire to stay there. No, at the
end of the day we sought the comfort of air-
conditioning and clean sheets at our deluxe
resort outside the park. And when other
younger visitors took a boat trip to an hour
long climb up a leech-infested rainforest trail,
to a cave they had to swim through and climb
ropes to navigate, we stayed behind, happily
paddling kayaks along the bank, looking for
wildlife and relaxing. Our days of rough adven-
tures may be over, but we have learned to
accommodate to our aging bodies and still
have fun.
And still there were rubber plantations to
admire along the way, but even these had
changed. The pottery cups have been replaced
by plastic ones and, sadly, the extent of rubber
plantations now has shaped the ecology of the
region. Commercial plantations, like rubber,
oil palm and teak, have taken over millions of
acres in Southeast Asia, land that once held
diverse rainforests? and their attendant flora
and fauna have been converted to monocul-
ture crops with no diversity of wildlife at all.
Some countries, like Thailand and
Malaysia, do a good job at protecting pristine

areas within national parks and limiting com-
mercial plantations to already degraded land.
But other countries like Indonesia, Cambodia,.
Laos and Burma are losing natural forests at a
rapid rate; with the proceeds of timber harvest
and land clearing and revenue from oil palm
and rubber all going to rich individuals, often
from China, Vietnam and Hong Kong. These
commercial.ernterprises supplanting rain-
forests along with the rising rich and middle
classes who now seek tiger bone, rhino horn
and shark fin soup are driving many species to
extinction at a rate more rapid than ever.
before.
I'm glad Bucko and I saw the region when
we did, so many years ago, and naively
admired the exotic groves of rubber planta-
tions. But now, in my maturity, when I see rub-
ber and oil palm I know what has been lost to
support it. With age comes a loss of strength,
flexibility and stamina, but with it also comes
experience and knowledge, which often com-
pensate for physical losses.,But here, now, in
Thailand, I long for the days of my youth when
I could look at rubber trees with joy and won-
der, and not the sense of loss that overwhelms
me today.

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.
Aggravated.
child abuse
A Fernandina Beach man
was arrested Saturday evening
after an infant was hospitalized
with subdural bleeding, accord-
ing to a police report .
Deputies said they went to
Wolfson Children's Hospital in
Jacksonville at 10 a.m. that day
in response to a report of aggra-
vated child abuse. Doctors at
the intensive care unit told
deputies the child, who is three
and a half months old, was
transported from Baptist
Nassau. They told deputies a
scan of the child's brain showed
subdural bleeding, a trau-
matic injury they ,said was
caused by someone shaking the
infant. -
i Doctors told deputies they
wouldn't be able to determine
the extent of the child's injuries.
until a later date. The child's
parents told deputies at the time
they weren't sure how the
injury happened.
Deputies said they later met
with the child's father, Robert
Shane Burnette, 26, represen-
tatives of the Department of
Children and Families and doc-
tors for an interview. During
the interview, Burnette told
deputies he heard the child cry-
ing and came into the room
where she was lying on her
mother's chest. He allegedly
told deputies he scooped up the
child and shook her. When the
child became lethargic, the
couple phoned 911, deputies
said.


Burnette, of 732 Old Amelia
Road, Fernandina Beach is
charged with aggravated child
abuse and is being held at
Nassau County Jail on a
$100,002 bond.

Burglary
A U.S. Navy sailor was
- arrested early Sunday on a list
of charges after witnesses
reported a suspicious man look-
ing at and possibly breaking
into cars, according'to a police
report.
Deputies said multiple
callers complained after 3 a.m.
of a male with blond hair wear-
ing a plaid shirt looking into
parked cars near the 800 block
of South Sixth Street. While
traveling to that location,
deputies received another call
with a complaint of a man
matching that description in the
600 block of South Ninth Street,
they said.
Deputies confronted Brian
Christopher Quinlan, a master
at arms stationed at Kings Bay
Naval Base in Kingsland, Ga.,
who wore a plaid shirt and
khaki shorts and no shoes,
according to the report.
Deputies said Quinlan, 25,
agreed to speak with police, but
"it was clearly evident that he
was highly intoxicated:"
A witness who called police
identified Quinlan as the suspi-
cious man previously reported,
deputies said. Deputies learned
that one car had not only been
burglarized, but damaged as
well when a tire iron was taken
from the trunk and used to
break 'the steering column,
according to the report. There
was a brown Quiksilver sandal
nearby and matching shoe
prirts a few feet from the car,
deputies'said.
Quinlan allegedly told
deputies he did not know where
his shoes, a pair of brown
Quiksilver sandals, were.
Deputies said he was also
uncertain of his whereabouts
and how he cut his feet and
face.
Quinlan, who resides in St.
Marys, Ga., is charged with bur-
glary to a vehicle, theft and
criminal mischief. He is being
held at Nassau County Jail on a
combined bond of $14,006.


Stun gunused
A Yulee man was stunned
and arrested early Sunday for
aggravated battery on a child
after he allegedly manhandled
an 11-year-old boy, deputies
said.
At their Stephens Road res-
idence, the child's parents told
deputies that Kristopher Robert
White, a family friend, slapped
their son in the face and
slammed him on the ground.
They told deputies the adults.
had been at Peters Point Park
earlier in the evening and when
they returned, they went to
their bedroom to talk about how
to get White, 29, to leave. .
The.child and White were
discussing "diabetes in Africa"
when White became upset and
allegedly slapped the child
across the left side of his face
before hoisting him into the air
and slamming him onto the
floor. Deputies said the child
tried to fetch his mom for help,
but White yanked him back by
his arm.
White then told the parents
he had to leave and hurried to
his car, deputies said. Deputies
said the child started telling his
parents what had happened,
prompting his father to search
for White to no avail.
Contacted at his
Worthington Drive residence
about 3 a.m., deputies tried to
place him under arrest. After
White pulled his wrist away, a
deputy drew his stun gun and
told him multiple times to place
his hands behind his back.
Deputies said when White,


refused they struck him with
the stun gun in the abdomen.
White, of 861498 Worthing-
ton Drive, Yulee is charged with
aggravated battery on a child.

Felony battery
A West Nassau High School
student has been charged with
felony battery following a fight
at the school May 1, according
to a police report.
A school resource officer
was called to a school bus about
a fight about 3:30 p.m., deputies
said. He found one student with
several injuries a small cut
above his left eye, a large red
welt beneath his left eye and a
small cut on his bottom lip,
according to the report. That
student told the deputy another
student hit him.
After finding the suspect in
the school's locker room, the'
officer escorted him to the
office and read him his rights,
deputies said. The suspect, 16,
allegedly told deputies that the.
victim put his face up against
his own and then pushed off
him. This, he told deputies,
prompted him to hit the victim
and knock him to the ground.
The suspect allegedly told
deputies that once the victim
was on the ground, he got on
top of him and hit him two more
times. Deputies said the victim
suffered cuts to his left eye and
mouth, in addition to facial frac-
tureslto the orbital arid jaw.
Deputies arrested the stp-
dent on a charge of aggravated
battery. He was released to juve-
nile care May 2.


School bus mishap
The driver of a Nassau
County school bus that struck a
parked car April 27 failed to
notice she had hit anything,
according to a police report.
Deputies said the bus was
traveling on Felmor Road in
Yulee before 3 p.m. when it
struck the side of a car parked
along the road. The bus driver
"was unaware it struck" the car,
deputies said.
Deputies said the driver con-
tinued along the route, drop-
ping off students at their homes,
until other bus drivers contact-
ed her and informed her of the
wreck. It is not known how
many students were on the bus
at the time of the crash, deputies
said.

Scam of Week: 'U.S. Grant Department'


Last week Seniors vs. Crime
received two almost identical
reports from Fernandina Beach
residents of a telephone call
scam well known in other parts
of the country. One call was
reported from a neighbor while
the other report came from a
staff volunteer at Seniors vs.
Crime. Here is how this scam
works starting with a telephone
call from a stranger who some-
how happens to know your
name an You answer the phone and
the caller announces that you
.have been iaiid.,,sl',h selected
fot an award, -i ,,t) from the
administration's "U.S. Grant
Departmentt" They may say
you were selected out of a
group of citizens who always
pay federal taxes on time and
have never declared bankrupt-
cy. You then are asked to call
another number to.talk to a
supervisor who will explain

how to obtain your grant. Along
with the supervisor's phone
.number you are given an
authorization code. That code
in one case was WG107 and in
the other WG104.
When you bite at the
prospect of a free $7,000 grant
you go ahead, and ldil up the
supervisor. A voice v.illi ;a for-,

"Grant Department, may I help
you?" You explain wlfy you are
calling, he verifies your name
and then asks for your author-

freport.com, you will find a sim-
ilar scam described with anoth-
er offer of a $7,000 federal grant
award. In that case, the scam-
mer did ask for the victim's
bank account information so
they could deposit the fake
award funds.
Seniors vs. Crime decided
to call the phony U.S. Grant
Department and pose as the
son of one of the awardees. The
person answering the phone
was very careful to not say too
much to us when we explained
our father was-away and.we
wanted to help collect his.
award. Mr. Chan asked when
our father would be back and
said he needed to talk to him.
About dinnertime we told him.
Later we cautioned the real
father not to respond if the
unreal "Grant Department"
called again.

the electorate to vote for them
in November, they do not have
a program giving away $7,000
grants to citizens. If you should
get a call from these folks offer-
ing you an award such as we
described, just hang up the
phone and report it to the
Federal Trade Commission
(FTC) at www.ftccomplaintas-
sistant.gov.
And if you are tired of tele-
phone calls from telemarketers
at home, put your number on
the FTC national do not call
registry. You may register at
, www.donotcall.gov or by tele-
' phone at (888) 382-1222.
Florida also has a "do not
call" list protecting consumers
from unwanted telephone solic-
itations. You can subscribe to
that list at www.fldnc.com.
Businesses that choose .to
ignore Florida's "do not call"
list may be fined $10,000 for
each violation.
Both of these services are
free and make it easier and
more efficient for Florida con-
sumers to reduce the number
of unwanted telemarketing
sales calls. Since the $7,000
grant award offers aren't exact-
ly telemarketing, they may not
protect against that type of
scam but at least now you know
what to do if you receive a call
from the "U.S. Grant
Department."
Seniors .vs. Crime is a spe-

Mcntosh, George share county MVP honors

BETH JONES
News-Leader


Jordan McIntosh was a
vital part of the Pirate basket-
ball team this year.
"I don't know if we could"
have won'a game without
him," said Matt Schreiber,
head boys basketball coach at
Fernandina Beach High
School.
McIntosh, a senior for-
ward 'for the Pirates, finished
the season with a double-dou-
ble. He averaged 12.7 points
and 11.5 rebounds in 27
games and shot 46.6 percent
.from the field. -
He shares the all-Nassau
County boys basketball most
valuable player honors with
West Nassau junior Keith
George.
"Keith George was the
best player on the best team
West Nassau has had in many
years," Schreiber said. "As an
opposing coach, the first
thing we planned for was how
to defend him.
"Not only was that a tough
task, but it opened things up
for his teammates. I think his
.approach to the game had a
tremendous effect on his
teams success."
George's talent wasn't lost
on McIntosh either.
"We matched up against
each other pretty well,"
McIntosh said.
Although the Pirates won
the county championship,
winning eight of nine games
against county foes, West
Nassau clinched the district.
"I have never had a player
who was more valuable to his
team than Jordan was this
year," Schreiber said. "During
games he scored, rebounded
and defended, while constant-
ly encouraging his team-
mates. Off the court he had a
complete understanding of
how we expected our players
to represent us and he made
sure his teammates under-

double all season with 12.7
points and 11.5 rebounds for

cent from field goal range:

WEDNESDAY, MAY 9,2012/NEWS-LEADER


'Vamanos' crowned king of the bottom


Brisk southeast winds blowing up to 20
miles per hour did not stop competi-
tors during the inaugural King of the
Bottom grouper fishing tournament
May 1. The grouper fishing season had been
shut down from Jan. 1 through April 30 in
Atlantic Ocean coastal waters. Fishermen.
were simply biting at the hook to catch excel-
lent eating and hard fighting grouper, choppy
seas or not.
"It was choppy running out through the St.
Marys inlet and finally into
the Atlantic Ocean," Capt
Bronson Stubbs said.
"However, as we navigated'
further offshore, the seas did
lie down, particularly later
duringthe day. Fishing did
prove to be excellent and we
caught more red snapper
than we did gag grouper."
OUTDOORS .Several other grouper
... boats reported the same fish-
Sacs ing success as they gathered'
TerryLacoss' to weigh in their catches later
that afternoon at the Fernandina Harbor
Marina.
"During late afternoon we began targeting
sunken wrecks and big ledges located at FC,
FB and FA fish havens," Capt. Benny Heridrix
said. "Every time I positioned my 'Heavy
Hitter' sport fishing boat over the structure,
the screen on my fish finder screen would
simply load up with gamefish.
"Obviously the lack of .recreational and
commercial fishing pressure, which is a result
of our government's unneeded fish closures,
had produced more fish than we could possi-
bly catch." .
"It was crazy,"Tony Peeples said. "We
dropped down our grouper baits to-that-
sunken barge andwithin five minutes of
Amelia Island bottom fishing, our party had
caught and released 11 red snapper weighing
to 30 pounds.
'There were so many red snapper from just
a few feet under the surface to the top of the
barge that our grouper baits did not have a
chance in reaching the bottom and a possible
grouper bite."
Spectators gathered at the Fernandina
Harbor Marina as tournament boats brought
their largest grouper to the. tournament
scales.
Team "Heavy Hitter" came to the city
docks with'a limit catch of Fernandina gag
grouper. Seasoned salt water fishermen
aboard Hendrix's sport fishing boat included
Dale Taylor, Michael Foster, Nick Cantrell,
David Johnson and Peeples.
"It was .definitely the best day of bottom-
fishing we have ever enjoyed," were words
spoken by every fisherman on board the local-
ly based charter fishing boat.
Hendrix placed his team's largest grouper
onthe digital'tournamenf scales, which read
14.68 pounds. A second grouper weighed an
almost identical weight, resulting in a two-fish
aggregate weight of 29 pounds.
Capt. Billy McFadden skippered his sport
fishing boat "Miss Jabo" to a nice catch of gag
grouper as well, comingto the scales with a,
two-fish aggregate weight of 19.84 pounds.
Also fishing aboard the "Miss Jabo" were
Herb McFadden, David Hagen, Rowdy Portier
and Mike Anderson.
Brothers Bronson and Will Stubbs and
longtime fishing companion Cam Harrison
was the last fishing team'to weigh in their
catch of Amelia Island grouper. As they read-
ied their two largest grouper to hang on the
digital fish scales, spectators and competitors
predicted their, catch might just top the lead-
ing weight.
Their first grouper topped the scales at
12,44 pounds, followed up by a much larger
gag grouper that weighed 17.24 pounds. Not
only did team "Vamanos" weigh in the largest
grouper of the tournament, it also took firsf
place in the heaviest two grouper aggregate
weight with 29.68 pounds.
The popular event began with a captain's
meeting at the Dog Star Tavern, where brag-
ging rights would be backed up with actual
catches on the following day of the tourna-
ment.
The current gag grouper season runs
through Dec. 31 with a bag limit of one per


day measuring at least 24 inches.
Be sure and read next week's News-Leader
article on the current big run. of red drum and


Brothers Will, above left, and Bronson
Stubbs teamed up with Cam Harrison to
win first-place honors recently in the
inaugural Kigg of the Bottom grouper
fishing tournament May,I. Fishing
aboard the sport fishing boat "Vamanos,"
their largest grouper weighed 17.24
pounds and their two grouper aggregate
weight was 29.68 pounds. Capt. Tony
Peeples, left, caught and released this
30-pound red snapper while fishing over
a sunken wreck. During the grouper tour-

boats, but weighed more too. Nick

I]FoWN


For every venture, there is a hat to match


People ask me about my
hat. If it is not on my head, I
am often asked, "Where's
your hat?"
In fact, lots of questions
come my way. If they are not
about the hat they are about
my latest column. Just for the
record, I do not sleep in my
hat. I usually do not wear it
after 6 p.m. But most of the
time it is firmly atop my head.
Hats have been very, very
good to me. They cover a bad
hair day and keep my hair in
place in an open car. Little did
I know more than 10 years
ago when I first started writ-
ing my weekly column that


my 4traw hat
with the
' black gros
grain ribbon
would
S become an
Sicon.
I, .Yes, Il
have always
loved hats,
FROM as did my
THE mother.
PORCH When I first
moved to
.... Florida I
Dickie took to grab-
Anderson bing a straw
hat to keep
off the sun. When approached


to write a column by my then
editor, she required a photo.
My protests were met by the
quick click of her digital cam-
era. The picture and the hat
have allowed me more than
the usual amount of local
fame. I am recognized at the
grocery store, in the coffee
shop and around town.
"You're the lady in the
paper."
"You're the porch lady I
read your column."
And often, "How is Big ,
Guy?"
Most of the time my hat of
choice is the classic straw hat,
but when off onra travel


adventure I pull down my ,
trusty Tilley hat. It is the hat
you imagine Karen Blixen
would wear in Out of Africa.
The Tilley Hat was originally
designed by a Canadian
named Alex Tilley who could
not find a suitable hat for his
own travel adventures, so he
designed one himself.
The Tilley hat, legendary
in the hat world for its classic
design and assured depend-
ability, has been with me to
Africa twice, to Egypt and
other slightly tamer destina-
tions.
My Tilley offers no fashion
statement but is instead the


ultimate functional head-
gear. The hat did its job. It
shielded me from the burning
sun and stayed on my head in
a stiff wind as our four-wheel
drive vehicles sped across
bumpy plains in search of
lions, cheetahs, leopards,
giraffes and elephants. After a
dusty day on safari, it could
even go into the shower with
me and be ready for another
day.
Not to be outdone, the Big
Guy is equally passionate
about his head coverings. His
is a cap. We have a vast variety
of caps in different colors Wvith
different logos hanging on


hooks in our garage. A cap
can declare allegiance to a
favorite school or be a memo-
ry of an event. A well-worn .
favorite is the beige and green
cap picked up at The M'aster's
several years ago. If I question
the number of caps, I anm
greeted with some compari-
sbn to an extravagance of my
own.
Yes, hats and caps are a
good thing. ,
Dickie Anderson welcomes
your comments. Books are
available at local book and gift
stores or online at www.dickie-

CIS Nassau enjoys'Kindness of Strangers'


Communities In Schools of
Nassau County benefited from
the "Kindness of Strangers" at
a special performance of "A
Streetcar Named Desire" at
Amelia Community Theatre
last month.
Drawing inspiration from
Blanch Dubois' famous line in
the play, "Whoever you are, I
have always depended on the
kindness of strangers," the spe-
cial event raised awareness and
funds for Nassau Cqunty's only
comprehensive dropout pre-
vention program.
This collaboration between
ACT and CIS Nassau was the
project of CIS board members
Kim Schweizer and Dawn Lunt
"We are both passionate about
CIS and ACT, and wanted to
find a way for these organiza-
tions to partner," says Lunt.
That collaboration came in the
form of an added performance
to the regular ACT schedule
of the popular Tennessee
Williams play and each organ-
ization received a portion of
the ticket sales.
The creativity of Schweizer
and Lunt didn't end at coordi-
nating the partnership. The
event began with a reception
provided by Horizon's Restau-
rant and specialty cocktails,
named "Sidecars Named

CIS student Kelsey Terril

formance and spoke about the
impact CIS Nassau has made in
Kelsey's life. "Communities In
Schools has helped us so
much," said Jody, "with every-
thing from clothes to food to


helping Kelsey get better
grades."
CIS Nassau is a non-profit

with a person to love him..
He's a terrier mix, about 7
years old and a pleasure to
walk or jog with he walks
very politely on his leash and
whatever your pace, he'll stay
right with you. He's very neat
in his kennel, so if he isn't
already housetrained he
should be easy to teach he's
very smart and eager to
please you. And the only thing
more gorgeous than his soft,
red coat is his great big smile.
Please watch Red Man's video
at NassauHumaneSociety.com
and hear him say, "I love you"
- then come let him tell you in
person!
Panther and Rose are two
extremely sweet cats who
have been through a lot
together and love each other
very much, and need to be
adopted together. Two pets
are often better than one
because they can entertain
each other while you're gone
- and with Panther arid Rose,
you know you're getting two
sweet cats who are totally
compatible. And we'll adopt
them both for the price of one!
Panther is a large male


Angora mix, about 5 years old,
and.totally affectionate and,....
outgoing, withia soft coat fo
putting. Rose is smaller, about
3, a Domestic Medium Hair
mix, and more reserved but
no less loving! They need a
quiet home without dogs. We
believe they lived together in
a home but their owners may
have moved and left them out-
side. They arrived at our shel-
ter separately and were both
very scared until they found
each other they. instantly
knew each other and have
been inseparable since. If you
have room in your home and
heart for these two wonderful
cats, they'll repay you always
with tons of love and grati-
tude.

'Rake Day

When the soil under the planned Boys & Girls Club on
Lime Street in Fernandina Beach was found to be filled
with old tree roots and branches and had to be replaced,
the Nassau County School Board was happy to allow the
excavated dirt to be spread on a soggy, low-lying area
next to Southside Elementary School. The area was lev-
eled and graded so it could serve as an athletic field but
pieces of trees still littered the surface. This problem
was solved by 14 members of the Boys & Girls Club who
volunteered to rake and make a- smooth surface, ready
for hydoseeding. Gwen McIntyre of the club staff and by
Bill Gower and Patrick Sabadie from the BGC
Foundation of Nassau County supervised the effort.

Inner child

The Fernandina Beach
Rotary Club enjoyed a
presentation on
increasing your creativi-
ty by member Dr. Jay .
Kayne, former profes-,
sor of entrepreneurship m
at the University of
Miami, Ohio and part u
of the "Imagine It
Project" that seeks to
influence people to be
innovators by openingve
their minds to think as
they did when they
were children with
creativity and explo-
ration. According to SUBMITTED
Kayne, studies show that
the older we get, the more likely we are to lose our abili-
ty to observe and make connections outside of our estab-
lished patterns. Also foiling our ability to be more cre-
ative is that we forget or refuse to ask the "dumb
questions." It's not how much we know, but what we can
learn by looking at life in a different way. He said we can
regain our creative abilities by releasing our inner child
and being more open to all the possibilities.

Focus on wellness

Wellness Director Marni Jennejahn, center, joins members of Osprey Village in
accepting a Best of the Best Award from the Assisted Living Federation of
American in 2011. The community is expanding to add a fully integrated Wellness
Department managed by Jeenejahn. Executive Director Matt Younger says the
community will hire an additional wellness associate and add new programs for
members to boost participation during the week and on weekends. He says the
expansion is the result of a growing demand for solutions to high-cost clinical care
that older adults may need later in life.
In addition to a lower-body strength program, Jennejahn will oversee the
expansion of additional programs focused on improving outcomes associated with
fractures or orthopedic replacements, heart failure, C.O.P.D., diabetes, arthritis
and Parkinson's disease, to name a few.
She will.also continue to emphasize and create prevention-oriented program-
ming for the community's independent living members who want to improve their
health while also reducing their chances of suffering a negative health event in the
future.
