FCAT writing. scores decline,


no matter how you figure it


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
The FCAT writing results were
released Friday after they were adjust-
ed to make up for a stunning drop in
scores the state Board of Education
attributed to a "tougher grading sys-
tem" under the new "2.0" tests given
for the first time this year.
Nassau County's writing scores tra-
ditionally have been stellar across the
board, with most schools showing 99
to 100 percent of students performing
at or above grade level. Using adjust-
ed figures, 85 percent of the district's
grade 4 students, 83 percent of grade
8 and 85 percent of grade 10 students
scored at level three or above.
Unadjusted, just 32 percent of
Nassau's fourth graders, 44 percent
of eighth graders and 27 percent of
10th graders would have passed.
On May 10, when the final FCAT
writing results became available to the
Department of Education, the Board of
Education held an emergency meeting
to consider how to move forward with
calculating school grades for this year.
While at the state level the board
does not set FCAT writing grade level
or passing standards for students, writ-
ing scores are factored into school
grades-though nr.i I hi- ':ii due to the
results and families may make school
choice decisions based on school
grades during the summer months.
"(The) vote by the State Board of
Education to recalibrate the school
grading scale of the FCAT writing test
was done in response to a tougher
grading system that appropriately
expects our students to understand

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City commissioners unanimously'
approved a conceptual plan for a down-
town waterfront park and Front Street
improvements at their May 15 meeting.
The new waterfront park is part of
the Forward Fernandina strategic
development plan that was initiated in
January 2011. Forward Fernandina's.,
ultimnatit g,,al; included waterfront
redevelopment, downtown revitaliza-
tion, South Eighth Street improve-
ments and development of neighbor-
hoods close to the downtown core.
The updated plan was first pre-
sented to commissioners in March by
the Waterfront Advisory Group. Com-
missioners at that time directed Interim
City Manager Dave Lott to develop
cost estimates for specific elements
and features of the waterfront park.
According to a city staff report, total
development costs for the waterfront
park come to $5.2 million, which-
includes Front Street Development
($2.2 million), three railroad crossings
($690,000), park development
($803,000) and park features and
amenities ($1.5 million).


ANGELA DAUGHTRY

A new boardwalk at Main Beach, to
be built 10-15 feet west of the current
'boafdwall, was approved 4-1 by city-
commissioners at their May 15 meet-
ing. Commissioner Charles Corbett
voted against.
The old' boardwalk must be
. replaced because it is deteriorated and
causing a safety hazard, staff said, but
the state Department of Environmental
Protection has told city officials a dune
that has formed around the boardwalk
must be protected.
According to a city staff report, the
maintenance department spends 7-8
hours a week blowing or sweeping
sand from the boardwalk and fixing
trip hazards. Many of the walkway
planks are raised, and a retaining wall
has also collapsed.
Last January, a plan to build a new
boardwalk 60 feet west of the current
one was scrapped because of citizen
protest. A plan for the new boardwalk
has been in the works since then, but
the issue of replacing the deteriorating


proves



ent plan
The Waterfront Advisory Group,
which was made up of a local architect
John Cotner, Curtis Burkette of Zev
Cohen, local engineer Nick Gillette,
architect Jose Miranda and Planning
Advisory Board Vice Chair Eric
Bartelt, recommended major elements
of the plan be retained, and that infra-
structure improvements be done
before anything else.
They also suggested at least one
area of the park be completed in its
entirety, and that the Atlantic Seafood
building be relocated because it blocks
views of the waterfront and cuts over
the boardwalk.
Resident Lynn Williams said at the
meeting the waterfront park plan had
been followed by residents "in various
iterations for the better part of 20
years." He also noted the city should
think about raising money for some
of the park features, in the same way
private contributions are being raised
for a new Nassau Humane Society facil-
ity.
Resident Andrew Curtin said he
was glad to see what the waterfront
park was going to cost, but that he did

boardwalk has been discussed off and
on since 2005. Last July, three design
options were presented to city com-
missidners.
After a discussion, commissioners
agreed to go forward with state per-
mitting for the new boardwalk, choos-
ing the option of building a new struc-
ture two feet above ground level and 10
to 15 feet west of the current one. The
entire project, if done in two phases, is
estimated to cost $178,000.
Corbett objected to the plan, saying
the city should consider spending
money on new bathrooms at the
Martin Luther King Jr. Center instead.
"Why are we spending this money
on a sand dune?" Corbett asked. "How
about spending money on MLK bath-
rooms? That's people over there, cor-
rect? That's not sand on the beach. ...
I've walked-the boardwalk before and
I haven't seen boards popping up."
"We're not spending money on sand
dunes, we're spending money for peo-
ple using the beach," Vice Mayor
Jeffrey Bunch said.

Clyde Goodbread dies


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Clyde Goodbread was, at heart, a
home boy.
Born in Fernandina, he grew up
in Yulee and graduated from Yulee

before retiring as a Command
Sergeant Major in 1982.
"I went off for 23 years, seeing the
world, and then I came back home,"
Goodbread told the News-leader a cou-
ple of years back.
The very concept of home is what
Goodbread sold here, as chief execu-
tive of the Amelia Island Nassau
County Board of Realtors for 26 years.
After taking over the realtors' associ-


action, he found it a
"When I took
over, we only had 96

we say we're promoting home owner-

the nearby shoreline. The pro-
tected areas are marked with
signs.
Park staff will monitor the
area daily for changes to nest-


ing areas and adjust the tem-
porary closures as necessary.
The back driving corridor that
provides access to the break-
water at the north end of the
park remains open. The water

row any more money. "Private
sector participation is down
the road,' he said. "Right now
we don't have the money."
Judith Lane said she had
recently spent time walking
around the downtown water-
front. "It was very sunny and
very hot," she said, "and I was
amazed at how inhospitable
the waterfront is. There was
no shade and no place to sit ...
the conceptual design provides
places to get out of the sun
down there."
Bunch said he was fine with
approving the conceptual plan,
but that some of it could be
done cheaper than was pre-
sented in the staff report.
"I'm not going to approve
the money for it tonight,"
Bunch said. "As they get the
money, we will spend money to
do parts of it... it's never a right
time to spend money, espe-
cially taxpayer money.... Ten or
15 years from now, which is
how long it will take to get it
done, it will be nice."
Poynter noted that if the
city wanted to move forward
with grants for some of the
work, the plan would have to
be approved.
The waterfront park plan
has been revised many times
over the .years, this time
because of some unexpected.
changes including the boat
ramp location and the opening
of Alachua Street. This version
of the plan was created by col:

"The boardwalk is in bad,shape. It's falling
apart," Commissioner Tim Poynter said. "We
can just-kick the can down the road for a few
more years... It's just going to continueto esca-
late. (Prices) go up if you put things off."
The Parks & Recreation Department, along
with Gillette & Associates, consulted With the
DEP and came up with three options to rebuild
the boardwalk last July, and have continued to
work on the plan and permitting.
The plan chosen by commissioners calls for
the current boardwalk to be abandoned and its
vertical structures to be removed. "Snow fenc-
ing" will also be installed along the east side of
the park to help stabilize the dune and slow its
migration to the west.
It was estimated the new boardwalk would
last about 30 years before it is also encroached
by the migrating'dune,

feet above ground level, is to be constructed at

the south, end of Main Beach liark and con-
nected with an existing boardwalk at the north
end that will remain. Three new shelters would
be constructed. The total cost for Phase I is
about $100,000, with another $14,500 added if
composite lumber is used instead of pressure
treated wood.
Phase II includes a shorter boardwalk cross-
ing east to west at the nor th end of the park and
two new shelters at.a cost of $75,170. Use of com-
posite lumber would increase the cost to
$86,370.
Commissioners voted 4-1 to move ahead
with permitting for the new boardwalk.
Interim City Manger Dave Lott said the next
step would be let the DEP know which .plan
was chosen and to secure a permit, then create
.final drawings that can go out to bid for con-
struction costs. According to Lott, there is
$125,000 set aside in the capital budget this
year to cover the new boardwalk, and con-
struction could begin this fall, after the 2012-13
budget has been approved.

proper punctuation, spelling and
grammar. The board acted after
it became clear that students
were posting significantly lower
scores under newer, tougher
writing standards," Education
Commissioner Gerard Robin-
son said in a press release
Friday.
"We are asking more from
our students and teachers than
we ever have. I believe it is
appropriate to expect that our
students know how to spell and
how to properly punctuate a
sentence. Before this year,
those basics were not given
enough attention, nor did we
give enough attention to com-
municating these basic expec-
tations to our teachers. I sup-
port the board's decision to
recalibrate the school grading
scale while keeping the writing
standards high."
Robinson further warned
that substantial 'declines are
coming for scores on the state's
high-stakes reading and math
tests, according to the Tampa


Bay Times. Third-graders must
pass the reading FCAT to be
promoted, and high school stu-
dents must pass the reading
and math FCAT to graduate.
Still, ninth and 10th grade
reading results released Friday
showed 60 percent of Nassau's
ninth and 10th graders scoring
at level 3 or above (compared to
56 and 41 respectively lastyear),
ranking them eighth and sixth
in the state respectively.
However, in seeming prepa-
ration for worse to come, on
Monday the DOE launched a

An educated voter is the corner stone of our
- electoral system, part of being an educated voter is
not only knowing the facts, but also knowing that it
isn't about voting for someone you know. It is about
voting for the person who will do the best job.
Some of the candidates for sheriff have been cam-
paigning for almost two years now and have yet to
announce what they intend to do or how they intend
to do it. So let me tell you about myself, Chris Hartley,
Candidate for Sheriff of Nassau County.

MY MISSION:

My first order of business will be to disband the "Good Old Boy"
network that plagues our Sheriff's Office.

I will bridge the gap between The Nassau County Sheriff's Office
and all the other agencies that we should be working with for the better-
ment of our safety and security.

I will guarantee an office of transparency in which the citizens of
Nassau County will have Immediate access to all public records.

I will increase the number of patrol deputies on the streets of
Nassau County at no additional costs to the taxpayers. My plan has been
formulated and I have shared it on my website.

I will implement a work program that puts our low risk (non) vio-
lent Inmates to work for the community. They will maintain our county
facilities and clean our roadways, beaches and parks all while saving us
hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I will be the only sheriff that doesn't cost the taxpayers any
money. By this, I mean that I will reduce spending by a minimum of my
salary or my paycheck goes back to the citizens of Nassau County. I am
the only one that will guarantee this!'

This is my mission. These are my goals. Please feel free to contact me, via.
my website or Facebook, with your thoughts or questions. The campaign sea-
son has been long and arduous, but it's not over. Please join me in my cam-
paign for sheriff. The people of Nassau County deserve the best.

God Bless,

Conducted by Research Data Services,
Inc., the study shows that more than
112,000 visitors came to Amelia Island dur-
ing the first three months of the year, gen-
crating a total economic impact of more
than $84 million.
"Amelia Island tourism continues to
improve in 2012 and we are very excited to
see the numbers for the remainder of the
year," said Gil Langley, president and CEO
of AITDC. "The number of visitors has
increased 3 percent compared with the
visitors in the first quarter of 2011 and the
year-to-date numbers are even stronger,

showing a 5.9 percent increase in visitors
from October 2011 to March 2012."
The hotel occupancy rate among Amelia

in February and 2.7 percent in March,
compared to 2011 figures. RevPAR or
the revenue per available room also
improved during those months, juinping

The profile also reconfirmed the island's
main visitor markets, with Florida, Georgia,
New York, Ohio and North Carolina com-
prising the top five states for visitor ori-
gin. According to Langley, there were sev-
eral other findings that bode well for the
destination.
"Overall satisfaction level with the des-

Real estate outlook improves

real estate market outlook

University of Florida.
The Survey of Emerging
Market Condi(ions, conducted
quarterly by the Kelley A.
Bergstrom Center for Real,
Estate Studies 'at UF's
Warrington College of Business
Administration, revealed that
those in the real estate business
felt optimistic because of the
falling unemployment rate and
because they see more activity
in rental housing, such as lease
signing. The unemployment
rate dropped from 9.9 percent in
December 2011 to 9 percent in
March.

pancy and rent growth along
with an improving employment
trend are increasing our respon-
dents' optimism about the real

Timothy S. Becker, director of
the Bergstrom Centei.
The UF Commercial Real
Estate Sentiment Index, a meas-
ure of the respondents' own
business outlook, reached its
highest level since 2007.
Bergstrom Center officials
attributed the rise to lenders
and owners sensing a better
lending environment with
banks as well as an improving
economy.
"With billions of dollars of
loans -coming due over the next
year, the increased lending
activity is a welcome sign for
real estate owners and investors
looking for debt capital to refi-
nance quality properties,"
Becker said.

and not resolving those issues
could lead to harsh economic
results. Among those issues are
the Bush tax cuts and the pay-
roll tax break, which are both
scheduled to expire after 2012,

concerned with artificially low

Explosive idea:


no fireworks?


In their hunt for excessive
expenses in the city budget
last year, frugal-minded Fer-
nandina Beach commission-
ers found at least one explo-
sive item.
They cut out an onerous
expense of $13,000 for the
Fourth of July fireworks that
fill the downtown sky. Appa-
rently, that is how tight last
year's budget proved to be.
You might not know it with-
out someone telling you, how-
ever. City commissioners have
been on a binge to spend
money on a new library, on a
waterfront park, on downtown
road projects, tallying millions
of dollars. But when budget
cuts must be made, even a
$13,000 expenditure appar-
ently draws scrutiny.
Of course, these new proj-
ects will be funded by bor-
rowed money and not from the
property tax revenues that fuel
most of the city's budget. Tax
revenues and fees are still slid-
ing as part of a four-year
' decline, anyhow.
But this hasn't deterred city
commissioners. Most of them
believe more spending of pub-
lic tax.dollars is necessary, not
less. Except when it comes to
something residents truly
enjoy, like fireworks.
Now, let's set the record
straight. The former city man-
ager drew up last year's budg-
et omitting the fireworks -
and only three of the existing
city commissioners approved it
(Charlie Corbett and Sarah
Pelican have since taken their
seats).
It appears that current city
officials will rectify the situa-
tion and scrape together
money for the fireworks this
year. New city manager Joe
Gerrity will find plenty of other
opportunities within the bloat-
ed 'budget to trim expenses,
but not from popular events
such as parades, concerts and
fireworks.
The most laughable thing
about last year's budget is that
city officials overspent once
again. For the third or fourth
year, they spent more than
they brought in -'having to dip.
into reserves to pay for their
fiscal sloppiness. And they
raised property tax rates once
again to boot. (And it's no won-
der two of the former city com-
missioners and the city man-
ager got the boot.)


Deep
and painful
cuts can be
expected in
0- this year's
S-' : ::" budget. To
-- '- no one's sur-
t prise, tax
receipts will

STEVE'S again this
MARI ET year. Pro-
PLACE perty values

Steve Nicklas d u c i n g
fewer tax
revenues. Anyone not lost at
sea knew this would be case.
Gerrity will be assigned a
difficult task. After years of
whimsically spending whatev-
er they needed or wanted, city
officials must resign them-
selves to reality and perform
some serious soul-searching
and cutbacks. While the real
estate market is stabilizing,
property tax receipts will not
improve for at least another
year or two (they are collected
in arrears).
However, Gerrity knows
how to live and work within a
budget. He comes from a suc-
cessful background in the cor-
porate world, where spending
is matched with revenue. Per-
sonnel, projects and perks
must all be scrutinized in the
new budget. And this hasn't
happened in several years.
At least three commission-
efs appear to be in a belt-tight-
ening, live-within-your-means
mood. Pelican, Corbett and
Vice Mayor Jeffrey Bunch
have all elevated the need for
such measures. They realize
that reduced spending within
the city's budget and other aus-
terity measures are the only
means for a prosperous future.
It is completely absurd that
city officials did not fund the
Fourth of July fireworks in the
budget. It's like trying to lose
Weight by cutting your hair.
While spending has been hap-
hazard and reckless in other
areas, a trivial expense like-this-
is hardly noticeable. However,
their message comes through
loud and clear much like
exploding fireworks.

rience having served as a cor-

tenant.
"I have served on state and


federal task
forces in vari-
ous law
* enforcement
fields," Whitley
said in.his cam-
p a i g n
announcement.
"I owned a
Whitley heavy equip-
ment company

ence in maintaining a budget
and negotiating with others."

member of the U.S. Army.

Florida Community College at
Jacksonville with studies in
criminal justice."
Whitley said, "If elected to
the office of sheriff I plan to be
accessible to all and present a
clear and transparent budget
so that not only the county com-
mission but the taxpayer will
know where their tax dollars
are being spent. I believe that
my experience and knowledge
makes me the right person for
the job as your next sheriff."

Channeling Fernandina Beach


It is a much-used joke about men and their
obsession with TV remotes, but like many
jokes this one is based in reality. So, with so
many things going on in our community imag-
ine this writer using that device to channel up
or down to visit some of those issues, people,
things or events:
Channel 1, Memorial Day. All Americans
pause to reflect, remember and appreciate
those millions of service men and women who
have died in the service of their country, giving
the ultimate sacrifice for us and for every
American who comes after us.
For me, no matter what we do, no matter
how many appreciative speeches we hear, no
matter how many services we attend, no mat-
ter how many flags we display, it will never be
enough.
We do, though, set aside this one day for
collective remembrance, and we do seem to
understand that this one day is about more
than the requisite family.gatherings, the cook-
outs and the time at the beach; we do seem to
sense that there's more and that's a good
thing.
Channel 2. A few final thoughts on the
city manager selection process, mercy prevail-
ing: 1) The process designed and followed by
the commission was unnecessarily cumber-
some, expensive and given to theater espe-
cially when the outcome was pretty much
known sinse last fall's election. In the future I
hope it's simplified, less expensive and doesn't
involve the biased involvement of the ICMA
(International City Manager's Association). 2)
In the future the commission should have a
salary and benefits package agreed upon soon-


er rather than later. I am glad
Joe Gerrity got the job, but
his $130,000 total salary -
including benefits is
hard to justify in this tough
economic climate. It's going
to be difficult to preach aus-.
terity when party to so lavish
a contract. Given the commis-
DEBATE sion's majority and the new
manager's desire for change,
AND well, the contract was a
TACKLE I missed opportunity and
leaves the message open to
.... question.
Ron Sapp Channel 3. On Sunday,
many of us will be getting '
together over at the Peck Center to celebrate
the 90th birthday of Ms. Willie Mae Hardy
Ashley, or simply Ms. Ashley as I've called her
all these many years.
Every community has a list of treasured
people, I know we, do, and like all lists the
names vary with the list-makers; much subjec-
tivity. But, I'll wager that some of the names on
all of the lists will be the same, and Ms. Ashley
is one of those. She is a true treasure to this.
city.
* Ms. Ashley has been a teacher, guidance
counselor, civil rights activist and community
activist and leader for much of her life and we
should all take time to acknowledge and honor
that life, a life well spent. I'm looking forward
to that celebration.
Channel 4. Fernandina Beach High
School graduation,, Class of 2012: We read a lot
today about the failure of public education,


about how schools don't work anymore.
Well, in my little world of education, on
my little island Fernandina Beach High
School, I know only these things: 1) Our
administration could not be more encouraging
and supportive, 2) our teachers are talented
and dedicated and 3) as teachers, we have the
honor and privilege of teaching some of
the most respectful, courteous, dedicated,
honorable, intelligent students on the face of
the Earth.
I'm not certain of many things anymore, I
guess that comes with age, but I am certain of
this: as I proudly watch each student walk
across that stage to get their diploma I know
they are prepared for any challenge the future
might toss their way, and that's a great thing to
be certain of.
Channel 5. The best "festival" on this
island is the Wild Amelia fest Each one of the
events is fantastic, well organized and staffed
by caring, dedicated people and it is so nice
that attention is paid to nature, solitude and
quiet places.
Prediction: As our island's quality of life
continues to deteriorate, as we become more
and more crowded, noisier, those things and
places emphasized by this festival will become
increasingly important to all of us.
Thank you, Wild Amelia organizers, for
highlighting and bringing attention to our natu-
ral surroundings and our quiet places.
Lots more channels to visit, but I think I'll
put the remote down and take a walk in the
Fort I'm in need of some nature, solitude and
a quiet place.
Ron Sapp isea former city commissioner.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Girls'softball
The 2012 Elm Street Little League
Girls Softball spring season i coming'
to an. end. On May 26 the three
Fernandina Beach Little Leaghe Girls
Softball teams will play their lastgame
of the regular season. It has been a
great year for softball. We played a
dozen different teams from all over
Northeast Florida, traveling as close as
.Yulee and as far to play as NAS
Jacksonville. But although the spring
girls' softball season is over, the sport
of girls' softball here irt Fernandina
Beach has just began.,
At the Fernandina Beach City
Commissioners regular meeting on
May 15, Mayor Arlene Filkoff, Interim
City Manager David Lott and the city
commissioners approved resolution
2012-74 designating the use of Joe
Valardi Field located behind the.
Atlafintic Avenue Recreation Center for
the use,of girls'youth softball, allowing
girls of any age and from any league or;.
team the opportunity to piactice'arid
play on a field designated and main-
tained to girls' softball specifications
effective immediately. This is a great
day for this sport in the city of
Fernandina Beach. Although girls' soft-
ball games have been played over the
past few years here in Fernandina'
Beach there has not been a dedicated
girls' softball venue since the girls' soft-
ball field on Atlantic Avenue vias con-
verted to a boys' baseball field a few
years ago.
We would like to publicly thank the
mayor, vice mayor, interim city man-
ager and all of the city commissioners
for listening, acknowledging and acting
on the need for a dedicated venue for
this sport. We are very excited and
very grateful that this first step has
taken place. Having the appropriate
distances between bases and pitching
mounds and an all-clay'infield is what
these girls will need,to compete at this
sport.
That said, there is a lot of work that,
still needs to be done. The field will
need additional fencing, protective net-
ting and dugouts before any games
can be played. We are looking forward
to working with the cityand hope to
begin a number of cooperative
fundraising events with the city of
Fernandina to help fund and construct
these items prior to next year's spring
girls' softball season.
i This season might be over but this
sport will live on. Elm Street Little

Alifewell lived
This is a nation of opportunity.
However, as the saying goes, "If you
don't know where you're going, any
road will get you there."
For one local woman opportunity
itself was her goal. And while pursuing
the path to opportunity, she managed
'to give her children values to last a
lifetime. Beginning in the early 20th
century, this is a short story about a
long road.
Public education ended in grade 8
where Annie Mae Mercer Hardy lived
in rural O'Neil. Yet she was determined
to give her children the opportunity
to graduate from high school. The pub-
lic high school was in Fernandina
Beach. Buses and cars were not avail-
able and money was equally hard to
find.
So Mrs. Hardy embarked on a mis-
sion. Not surprisingly, she began by
lobbying her husband, Oscar, for a


home in town. Oscar Hardy was a
responsible man living on land he had
inherited from his father. Abandoning
that, and the security it provided, was
not on his agenda. He resisted. She
persisted: Finally he agreed to move
the family to a rented home.in the
Cashen Curve area on Amelia Island.
The school was on Atlantic Avenue
and .1th Street, still a long way from
home. Transportation remained an
obstacle.
However, Mrs. Hardy firmly believ-
ed'in her ability to improve just about
any situation. Robert William had the,
only car around. Soon he was piling
school-bound children, one on top of
another, into his shiny black sedan.
By working small jobs in their spare
time, the local mothers were able to col-
lect nickels, dimes and quarters to hire
a driver for their children. How did
this happen? None had extra money,
but Mrs. Hardy was energized and
able to inspire others by her theory
onpoverty. I. I
To het "broke" meant'thatyou don't'
have money. She would point out that
a lot of people are broke. However,
"poor" meant that you,don't have
resources. Mrs. Hardy was never at a
less to explain what could be done,
without money: Teach a child. Comfort
another human being. Improve a situ-
ation. Laziness was intolerable because
there was always something that need-
ed to be done. To illustrate poor behav-
ior to her children, she would point
out trash in someone's yard saying,
"Those people are poor because they
don't know enough to take care of what
they have." In her large family there
were many pleas for unaffordable
clothes. Her response, "Put something
in your head and not on your body,"
reinforced her focus on inner pride
and education. She firmly believed
that there are an infinite number of
ways to add value to a family and a
community without money. Having
what she called "poor ways" was not
one of them.
Eventually Oscar managed to rent
a home on Seventh Street. But the
schoolwas yet to be built. So' Elizabeth,
Allien and Blanche Hardy walked to
school at Atlantic and 11th. When the
new Peck School was built in 1927 the
excited students marched down llth
. street to begin a new chapter in their
education in the new school. Two more
Hardy'children, Willie Mae and Robert
Leroy, entered the first grade in the
New Peck School now close to home.
All of Annie Mae Mercer Hardy's chil-
dren had the opportunity to graduate,
from high school. Some did, some did
not. All were broke, but none were
poor.
Mission accomplished.

American flag
This is directed to the criticism
about the American flag ("Flag an 'eye-
sore'," May 11). You are obviously a
recent implant to Amelia Island. You
could not have possibly ever come
across the bridge onto Amelia Island
(especially at night) and seen the flag
from the Shave Bridge, all lit up and fly-
ing high when it was on 14th and
Sadler. It really was a breathtaking
view! Sorry for your negative attitude.
By the way I have lived here all my,
life and still love Fernandina Beach.

New pinkslime'
ABC, the same folks who recently
enlightened folks about "pink slime,"
has collected (imported) shrimp
samples from various places and
has found antibiotics: Chlorampheni-
col, Enrofloxacin, Nitrofuranzone,
Fluroquinoiones, and reported that on
the ABC News.
We, the Shrimp Producers
Association and other industry folks,
keep telling everyone and trying to


get folks to stay away from import-
ed/farm-raised shrimp.
Buy and eat only "Wild Caught
Shrimp," support USA shrimpers and

natural resources and habitat as well as
shrimpers and their families. Buy
American.

Response
Re: "Careful what you ask for," May
16.
I hear this argument all the time
and I believe it to be a cop-out that
ignores much bigger problems. Those
problems are sheepish consumerism
and the willingness of people to be
held hostage by today's pseudo
Patricians.

Signs on Fletcher
My house is a permanent residence
on South Fletcher Avenue. This is not
a gated community and the only code
enforcement laws that we have are up
to the city, county and state. We do not
have a homeowners' association to
make rules about signs. I feel that my
neighborhood has been invaded by
politicians, realtors and anyone in the
community that has something to sell.
The signs are getting bigger. Pretty
soon the signs on Fletcher will be as
large as those on 1-95.
If a house on South Fletcher does-
n't sell within a certain amount of time
then they just put up a bigger sign.
Now the politicians who will not even
have an election until August feel that
we should have to look at their en-
larged signs, some with their pictures,
for more than 90 days. How many signs
can they put up before this election? Or
should I ask. Then for those that hap-
pen to win we will have to look at those
for another three months.
Frankly, I am already sick of the
signs cluttering our area. Apparently
these people do not have much respect
for my neighborhood even though they
would love to sell or rent something on
this street and the politicians would
like for me to vote for them.
I do not plan to vote for anyone who
has these oversized signs whether on
the side.of the road or in someone's
yard. I am making a list of those so I
can take them to the voting booth with
me. Even if the law does allow for.
this clutter the people that feel that
they need these signs do not appear
to have a lot of respect for the neigh-
borhood, the city, the county or the
state..


Oh, and shame on those home-
owners both permanent and part-time
who allow those oversized signs on
their, property.

Don't count on your
kids attending UF
I was shocked the other day to read
that the average SAT total score of
entering freshmen last year at
University of Florida was 1945. Not
only is the state's -flagship university
getting more expensive but it is quick-
ly becoming-only for the best and
brightest regardless of socioeconomic
status or geography.
For example, let's consider geog-
raphy first. At Lexington High in
Massachusetts it would have taken an
above-average score from those who
took the SAT to equal the UF average.
At.LHS, the only public high school in
town, there were 426 seniors and 406
of them took the test. Thirty-six per-
cent of students are minorities. The
average score of all 406 was a stun-
ning 1894. Lexington is an upscale
town, but that average included some
low-income students and some special
education students. This is clearly one
of the best public high schools in the
country and probably only 40 percent
of them would meet the UF freshmen's
average score.
So let's look at income instead. SAT
scores are directly proportional to
household income. The highest
income group the SAT tracks are those
families with an income of over
$200,000. That's at least four times the
median household income in Florida
and twice that of the median income
group in Massachusetts. But income
and geography come into play here. In
Florida, students from the wealthiest
group in public education score a
respectable 1657, while in Massachu-
setts the same income group scores
1785, still far below the UF freshman
average.
So what can we take away from
this? If you have a family of young chil-
dren living here don't plan on them
attending UF, it's not a slam dunk your
kids will be accepted no matter how
bright you and your,spouse are, how
good the school and how much money
you make. So what about the rest of the
families in Florida? My advice: move to
a state with quality education such as
Massachusetts, raise your family, then
perhaps have them serve our country
for 3-4 years and get veterans' benefits
to help defray the costs then get
them into a good university without
mortgaging their future or yours. If
they turn out to be exceptional per-
formers they can write their ticket, so
to speak.


RICK MCKEE/THEAUGUSTA (GA.) CHRONICLE

The fact is, it might be worth the
move out of state. A couple in health
care making a respectable combined
income of $128,000 in Florida are still
marginal regarding the average per-
formance of similar family income kids
in Florida high schools: their income
group's average SAT scores are 1558.
This is near the minimum required.
average score for many colleges and
universities. If this family were to move
to Massachusetts, the average score of
their same income group was 1652,
nearly the same as the children of
unlimited income parents in Florida.
Even lower income groups do much
better in a good system: 11 low-income
students at Belmont Public High
School in Massachusetts took the SAT
and their average score was 1613. With.
good grades, that can get them into a
university.

Foster parents
Family Support Services of North
Florida (FSS) invites the community to
recognize local foster parents during
National Foster Care month. .
Foster parents are available day
and night, quietly opening their homes
to children whose families are .in crisis.
Foster parents are the heroes in our.
community providing ,a safe and
secure environment until the children
can be safely reunited with their fam-
ilies, or in some cases adopted by a for-
ever family.
We commend our local foster par-
ents for their compassionate and ded-
icated service.
Also serving a valuable role in the
foster care system are the family mem-
bers and friends who step up to care
for children who would otherwise be
placed in foster homes. These kinship
caregivers provide a caring home until
the troubled families are stabilized.
FSS also salutes the local foster
parent associations, child services
agencies, community leaders and pro-
fessionals who support the outstand-
ing foster care provided throughout
the community.
We urge you to consider becom-
ing a foster parent. Contact Family
Support Services at 421-5864 for more
information. You can make a differ-
ence in the life of a child.

This was written by Garrett

cion ofa crime, not guilt.

Crackin jail
A Yulee woman was arrest-
ed early Monday on a list of
charges after she allegedly
brought crack cocaine into the
Nassau County Jail, according
to a police report.
Deputies said they were
booking Terri Anne Dubberly
on an unrelated charge about 4
a.m. when they found she had a
metal pipe and a plastic con-
tainer with two pieces of a hand
white substance inside. While:
Dubberly, 27, was changing
clothes one deputy allegedly
saw a plastic container in her
underwear and' something
metal protruding from her


crotch, according to the report.
Deputies said they retrieved
the container and asked
Dubberly to hand over the pipe.
A test of the white substance
inside the plastic was positive
for cocaine, deputies said.
Dubberly, of 2914 Brooker
Road, is charged with posses-
sion of cocaine, introduction of
contraband to a detention facil-
ity and possession of drug para-
phernalia. She's being held on
a bond of $16,008.

Potinjail
A Fernandina Beach woman
was jailed Sunday evening after
authorities responded to her
Bahama Point residence fol-.
lowing reports of a domestic
disturbance, deputies said.
While deputies were inves-
tigating that disturbance before
8 p.m., Jacqueline Barnjun, 40,
allegedly grew belligerent and
would not stop interfering with
their investigation, they said.
Deputies said once they
transported Barnjun to Nassau
County Jail, they asked if she
had anything illegal on her and
she told them. she did not. A
search revealed a paper cup
with a small amount of what
appeared to be marijuana
tucked inside her bra, deputies
said. When, asked about it,
Barnjun allegedly told deputies
it was marijuana.


Alcohol kills teens


TALLAHASSEE '- The
Florida Department of Child-
ren and Families has reminded
parents that drinking is illegal
for anyone under the age of 21
and encourages 'them to talk
with their children about the
risks of underage drinking.
Alcohol kills rflore teens
than all illegal drugs combined,
but alcohol can seem so com-
mon that many parents forget
how risky drinking is for young,
people..
Research shows that par-
ents are the most important


influence on whether teens
choose to drink alcohol.
In Florida, teens caught
drinking Will automatically lose
their driver's license.
Because teens are. still
developing, they take more
risks with alcohol and may act
impulsively, which could lead to
injuries or even death.
Studies,show that parents
are the most common supplier
of alcohol to teen drinkers. This
is a crime, and parents can be
prosecuted, especially if an,
injury or death occurs.


Barnjun, of 23615 Bahama
Point, Apt 1428, is charged with
introduction of contraband to a
detention facility, possession of
less than 20 grams of marijuana
and opposing a law enforcement
officer. She's held on a bond of
$10,006.

Armed robbery.
A Yulee man was robbed at
knife and gunpoint in Fernan-
dina Beach after leaving work
late Friday, according to a police
report.
The ftan told police he
cashed his work check, worth
about $450, earlier that day and
he was riding his bike north on
South 11th Street toward its
intersection with Elm Street
when two men and a woman
approached him. One of the
men held a knife to his side as
the three forced him to walk
his bike to the intersection of
Division and Elm streets, he
told police.
The victim told police that
once they got to the intersec-
tion, three or four more men
walked out from an empty,
wooded lot nearby. One of
them, he said, drew a revolver
and pressed the barrel of the
gun against his head and
demanded he give them his
money. Some of them started
grabbing the money from his
pockets .whilkthe gun was still
fixed to his head, he told police.
At some point during the rob-
bery, a neighbor yelled at the
men to leave him alone, he said.
They fled south on Division
Street on foot, he told police.
The man told police his rob-
bers were four or five black men
of various heights. One of them,,
he said, wore a black bandana,
three wore red shirts and all
were wearing black or dark col-
ored pants. The black woman,
he told police, was.wearing
green pants.
Police, said several
bystanders standing at the
southwestt corner of Elm and
Division all said they did not
witness the incident. There was
a small rip in the back of the
man's shirt, police said, and a
patch of dirt on the front.


Road rage

Police arrested a Hilliard
woman Friday' morning after
she allegedly assaulted two juve-
niles following a road rage inci-
dent, according to a deputy's
report.
"Deputies said a car carrying
three juveniles was headed to
the 3000 block of West Sixth
Street in Fernandina Beach
when it crossed paths with a
car carrying Sara Marie Nelson
of Hilliard and an unidentified
man. Nelson's car followed the
juveniles to a residence on Sixth
Street where she and the man
got out and confronted them,
deputies said.
Nelson, 24, was yelling at
the three kids when she learned
they were not adults, deputies
said. While this knowledge
reportedly prompted the man to
back down, she allegedly
walked over to one of girls and
shoved her several times,
deputies said. Afterward,
deputies said she walked over to
another girl and punched her
in the mouth with atclosed fist,

complaints on file see how
they were resolved. The best
way you can protect your trav-
el investment is dealing with a
reputable local travel compa-
ny.
Here are six tips from the
department's Division of
Consumer Services to help
you avoid becoming a victim
and ensure a positive travel
experience.
1. Take your time and
beware of high-pressure sales
tactics and pitches that "
require an immediate decision
or payment.
2. Read carefully any con-
tract presented to you. Ask
questions and do not sign the
contract if you have any
doubts. Remember your sig--
nature on a contract acknowl-
edges your acceptance of all
the terms and conditions.
3. Verify the arrangements
in writing and get a copy of
the cancellation and refund


policies before making a pur-
chase. Do not accept vague
terms such as "major hotels"
or "luxury cruise ship."
4. Use a credit card to pay
for the vacation/travel. If you
do not get what you expected
and paid for you can dispute
the charges with your credit
card company. Unless you
have initiated the call and are
certain of the company you
are dealing with, never give
out your credit card or check-
ing account numbers over the
phone.
5. Be skeptical of unsolicit-
ed offers of free vacations
arriving through the mail,
Internet or telephone. Many
companies offer "free" trips as
thinly-veiled ploys to obtain
your credit card information
or to trick people into buying
their products or services.
6. Buy travel insurance
before embarking on your
vacation. If something unex-
pected came up that prevent-
ed you from taking your trip,
insurance is a good way to
minimize the risk of losing a
large amount of money.
Before purchasing insurance,
read the small print for any
coverage exclusions and
check to see that the company
is licensed in Florida
(www.MyFloridaCFO.com).
Of course, the rare ship-
wreck or storm at sea can
occur at any time and spoil
your cruise. We hope you fol-
low the advice we have pre-
sented here while planning
your next trip or vacation. You
deserve a nice travel experi-
ence.

g1" Since a lot of golf courses are lined with trees, the amateur golfer is very familiar with
those surroundings. Being in the Irees can be a very trepidatious time, but it really does
not have to be. If you have a dear line of sight toward your target, there are a handful of
lips to make a precise shot from the woods. The first bit of advice is to make sure to
select a club with a low loft to keep the. ball flight quite low. A four or five iron is a popular
S choice. Make sure that the ball is positioned well back in your stance. Your hands should
be very far ahead of the dubhead as well and all of these suggestions are to try and keep the ball low.
The final piece of the puzzle is to make sure that your followthrough is abrupt and straight to the
target. Do not make a full swing as a full followthrough will promote a higher trajectory for your shot

WEDNESDAY, MAY 23, 2012/NEWS-LEADER


Bump, Ventrello and Thomas top IFA redfish event


T he Inshore Fishing
Association Redfish
Tour came to Fern-
andina Beach over
the weekend, showcasing its
national redfish tour. The IFA
Redfish Tour is an excellent
opportunity for area and out-
of-town inshore fishermen to
compete from either a kayak
or outboard powered fishing
boat. ,
On Saturday some 50 red-
fish boats, from small skiffs to
large bay boats, staged at the
Fernandina Harbor Marina
for an exciting day of redfish
competition. Each redfish
team was checked out from
the fuel dock and, with good
knowledge, headed for their
targeted redfish flats. A few
brave redfish teams navigated
to the popular St. Marys jetty
rocks.
'It was rough at the jetty
rocks," local favorite Jimmy
Stubbs said. 'The wind was
really kicking up from the
northeast when my son Jim-
my and I arrived at the jetties;
in fact, a few rouge waves -
acttally broke into our boat
and knocked me to the floor.
We stayed wet all day, but the
red fishing was excellent."
The father-and-son team
came to the weigh-in scales
with two large redfish; howev-
er, thei- largest red measured
over the legal size limit of 27
inches.
"We tossed back one red
that measured 26 1/2 inches,"
Jimmy Stubbs-said. "Also our
redfish did measure just
under 27 inches on our meas-
uring board." -
Redfish must measure a
minimum of 18 inches but not
over 27 inches to qualify for
the weigh-in. A past problem
has been redfish that meas-
ure just under the maximum
27-inch limit when caught but
measure over the 27-limit
when brought to the tour na-
nient site. Many redfish
teams have run into this very
same problem.
In many cases teams will
take a chance when their red-
fish measures right at the 27-
inch line. If they measure, it
could bring home-a $30,000
payday.
"When our redfish meas-
ure right at the 27-inch line,
we will put ice in the live well


just before
we weigh in,
which actual-
ly makes the
redfish
S shrink up in
length,"
Adam Loud
J said. "Warm
live well
OUTDOORS water fre-
quently
Teryaoss allows red-
erryacossfish to relax
and increase in length."
Rich Thomas of Jackson-
ville and Joe Ventrello of Or-
lando weighed in the heaviest
two redfish at 13.30 pounds.
Their first-place prize includ-
ed a brand new Ranger "Ex-
treme" outfitted with a Yama-
ha outboard, Loadmaster
trailer and Power Pole valued
at $30,000.
Tom Riley and Dan Small-
wood took second-place hon-
ors with 12.7 pounds; third
place went to Skip Swain and
Andy Gowen with 12.45
pounds; fourth place went to
Luke Ference and John Kit-
chens with 12.43 pounds; Bill
Pittman and Chris Chapman
took fifth with 12.2 pounds;
and Randy Lane weighed in
the largest redfish at 7.43
pounds.
On Sunday 41 kayakers
competed for a new Hobie
Kayak'valued at $2,600.
Jacksonville's Roger Bump
emerged the winner with a
total of 62 inches. Included
were a massive 42-inch red-
fish and a 20-inch sea trout.
Kayakers measured their
sea trout and redfish onboard
their kayak and then captured
their catch with a digital
photo. Photo cards were then
turned in to the tournament
' base located at Brett's
Waterway Caf6.
Kevin Lairsey came in sec-
ond and Craig Van Broklin
took third. Mike Dotson cap-
tured.largest sea trout honors
with a nice 23-inch sea trout.
During the 2012 Jackson-
ville Kayak Classic Fishing
Tournament, Ryan Conner
took fifth out of 420 boats.
Also Bill Pittman and Chris
Chapman have moved into
the lead for IFA Redfish Team
of the Year foi- the Northeast
Florida Division with one ,
tournament remaining, which

will be held in Titusville.
Jim Armstrong heads up
the Inshore Fishing
Association Redfish Tour and
has deep roots in competitive
fishing. In 1990-he took over
the Southern Kingfish
Association competitive tour.
Armstrong eventually sold his
portion of the SKA and
formed the IFA Redfish Tour
with partners Grady Warren
and Author Alliso6n in the year
2000. Armstrong bought out
both partners and currently is


the sole owner and president
of the IFA Redfish Tour.
Certainly Armstrong has
played a major role in bring-
ing together competitive salt-
watdr fishing teams with
marine-related companies
that have simply produced a
better product.
"A major factor when
organizing the Redfish Tour
was to attract skilled fishing
teams that would give excel-
lent advice for developing bet-
ter marine products,"


Armstrong said. 'Today we
have much better redfish
boats, outboards, gear and
tackle in part to our skilled,
red fishermen."'
Jim and Barbara -
Arimstrong siiiply love
Amelia Island and currently -
live in Macon, Ga. Jim ...
Armstrong also hinted to
bringing the National [FA
Redfish Tour Champ)ionship
to Amelia Island, which would
offer a huge economic boost
for the community.

This is a test. When you hear the
words Memorial Day, what comes to
mind? For too many it's a long week-
end, grilling, going to the beach,
family gatherings. For most it
announces the beginning of sum-
mer. But Memorial Day should be so
much more. It should be about flags,
parades, patriotic music and remem-
bering our true.heroes -those who
serve and have served ihn the armed
services. Let's put the "memory"
back in Memorial Day.
What better way than to enjoy a
very special concert full of foot-
stomping, hand-slapping, all-
American, patriotic music? ARIAS

Symphony) once again will bring the
Jacksonville Symphony to Amelia

the Midwest. Scouts were big in
those days. We all dressed in our
uniforms with our accumulated
badges proudly displayed. We joined
serving soldiers, veterans, high
school bands and the community
fire engine as we marched with
great enthusiasm right through the
middle of town. I am sure there were
patriotic speeches and a wreath lay-
ing ceremony, but what I remember


was being "in" a parade.
Memorial Day and its celebration
have not been without controversy.
It was first observed in May 1868,
when flowers were placed on the
graves of Union and Confederate
soldiers at Arlington National
Cemetery. The first state to officially
recognize the holiday was New York
in 1890. The South refused to
acknowledge the day and honored


al Day
its dead on different dates. It took a
World War, the first, to create a holi-
day that honored all veterans, men
and women, not just those who died
in the Civil War.
Ted Preston, a volunteer with
ARIAS, shared his enthusiasm, "We
would love to get a big crowd to the
concert; the bigger the crowd, the.
better the atmosphere and the more
exciting the evening will be sort of
our local equivalent'of the Boston
Pops 4th of July concert."
So get out your red, white and
blue. Wave an American flag. Enjoy
a very special musical salute that is
all about being an American.

WEDNESDAY. MAY 23, 2012 AROUND TOWN News-Leader


Club nears 50-book benchmark


In the last four years, mem-
bers of the Friends of the
Library (FOL) Book Club have
discussed almost 50 books in
depth and with delight. Fifty
books! What accounts for this
sturdy popularity? The answer
appears to be its coed approach
to leadership, membership and
book choices.
Coed leadership: Marilyn
and Norm Wesley, the club's
leaders, were popular college
professors of literature in New
York State before they moved
to Fernandina Beach. "Here,"
Marilyn says, "we learned so
many people were interested
in books that we were living on
a veritable Book Island." Asked
to head up the FOL Book Club,'
the couple agreed enthusiasti-
cally.
Andrea Hoffman, a four-
year veteran of the group, says,
"We really hit the jackpot with
Norm and Marilyn." Margaret
Barovich recalls the pair will
"often simply listen and encour-
age our discussion but occa-
sionally find a teachable
moment; I'm remembering
Norm's thoughts on The Sound
and The Fury." Anne Oman
calls the pair "our gentle and
very knowledgeable facilita-
tors," who keep the discussions
on track.
Evelyn McDonald adds
wryly that, unlike some other
book clubs, "we actually talk
about the book."
Coed membership: Few
book clubs can.boast they reg-
ularly attract both men and
women to meetings. Marie
West says the benefit of being
coed is the differentt perspec-
tives than you might get in a:

reading group of one gender."
Discussions are always riv-
eting and in-depth. Lynne
Anderson is a self-described
"numbers person" unused to
what she calls "this analyzing-
and-interpreting business." Still,
she says, "with the help and
influence and example set by
the group, I'm learning how to
read with more understanding
and appreciation, and not just in
a rush to see how the story
ends."
Maddy Franchi, although
away from the island several
months each year, refuses to
be left out. "I still .read along
with the group and ... email my
comments to Marilyn before
the meeting."
Norm Wesley credits mem-


bers' open-mindedness with.
fostering open expression and
an atmosphere that is "friendly'
and collegial, everyone respect-
ed my ideal of what literary
discussion should be but so
rarely is."
Coed book choices: The
club holds an annual 'social
evening where everyone may
nominate a book title for the
next year's list. Burton K.
Bright likes knowing "why a
particular book was chosen
other than let's di&ink wine and
choose a book:" Bobbie Fost
is amazed by the result. "This
group of diverse people comes
up with such interesting books
to read books I would never
have read on my own."
Naturally not every selec-.

tion is an across-the-board win-
ner. Sallie McDonald admits to
times "when I have not really
enjoyed a book that we've read.
Lolita comes to mind, as an
example. I went to the discus-
sion and found that I had not
appreciated the subtle humor
"and other fine nuances of the
book."
The annual reading lists are
by turn classic, current, non-
fiction, fiction, explicating male
or female characters. One list
paired Lolita with Reading
Lolita in Tehran. They've read
the war memoir The Things
They Carried and Thomas
Paine's The Age of Reason. This
August they'll tackle John
Updike's Rabbit Run. Emma
Donohue's Room is up for the
fall.
Dr. Marilyn Wesley explains
the dynamics of this unique
book club: "A first reading of a
book, however engaging, is a
solitary activity, but a book dis-
cussion by engaged, intelligent
readers creates a community.
Educators name this effect col-
laborative learning. I am proud
to call it a meeting of the FOL
Book Club."
