Higher tax




rate OK'd

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City commissioners approved a tentative "rollback"
millage rate at a special budget meeting Thursday that
keeps property tax rates up even as property values con-
tinue to decline.
Once approved by commissioners, the rate cannot be
raised but can be lowered. Commissioners are scheduled
to endorse final rate next month when they approve the
2012-13 budget that takes effect Oct. 1.
The tentative rate is 6.3001 mills, which includes a gen-
eral rate of 6.0277 and a voter-approved debt of 0.2724 for
Egans Creek Greenway bonds. If given final approval, the
new mill rate would mean a 0.8666 mill increase over last
fiscal year's total rate of 5.4335.
The "rollback" rate was originally meant to keep the
same amount of property tax money coming in to the city
when properties were increasing in value, and meant a sav-
ings for many property owners. However, properties have
not increased in value since the foreclosure crisis hit in
2008, and the.rate is now used to cover budget shortfalls.

City Manager Joe Gerrity for deeper cuts in the city budg-

News-Leader
The Florida Inland Navigation District is commencing
a dredge management project on Crane Island, according
to FIND executive director David Roach, but actual dredg-
ing of the Intracoastal Waterway by the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers will not begin until 2014.
Roach said in a phone interview that a dredge man-
agemenRt;falit.vould be constructed within the 35.5 acres
ow nerd,by FIND ,..i Crane Island before dredging begins.
'Thi dredging will take place approximately from the
Fernandina Harbor Marina to the Shave Bridge, Roach
said. Shoaling in the area has reached a critical point, he
added, especially around the bridge.
Roach noted Crane Island has historically been used as
a spoil site, and its acreage has been added onto by dredg-
ing.
According to a letter from FIND staff to the city, the
agency is in the bidding process for construction of the spoil
management facility and will most likely proceed with con-
struction in October, with a 270-day construction period.
Roach also noted there had been some concern among
environmental groups in years past about the dredge spoil
affecting the: aesthetics of the island's natural environ-

Then Donna Boyett
watched 'The Way," a
film in which Martin
Sheen portrays a
father who completes his son's pil-
grimage after the young man dies,
she was moved to duplicate the jour-
ney.
The 75-year-old Fernandina resi-
(denr .n alk:,rl 200 miles of the ancient
497-mile Camino de Santiago, or
Way of St. James, a path that has
been trod by pilgrims since
Medieval times.
Originally, the journey began at
the walker's home. These days there
are many established routes, the
most popular beginning at St. Jean
Pied de Port, on the border between
France and Spain.
Pilgrims make the journey for
many reasons. some religious, some
secular, but all end up at the cathe-
dral in Santiago, Spain, using paths
that are often quite steep and when.
heavy mists are floating over the
Pyrenees mountains, can even be
dangerous.
Boyett's two adult sons, Jeffrey
and Kevin, were proud their mother
was ticking this item off her bucket
list, but concerned about her doing


the pilgrimage alone. She assured
them she would be fine and
although the mountainous terrain
often made electronic communica-
tion difficult, she managed to send
half a dozen emails homeland
always asked others en route-to
reassure her family she was fine.
Boyett is a youthful, healthy indi-
vidual but she took care to build up
her stamina by riding a bike, walk-
ing in her neighborhood and on a
treadmill prior to her pilgrimage.
Having to carry everything she
needed in a backpack, Boyett fol-
lowed popular Camino protocol by
only bringing'two changes of
clothes, one to wear and one to wash
out at night. Her pack also stored a
pair of sneakers, a journal, her iPad
in a ziplock bag, a rain poncho and a
few personal items. Fully stocked,
the pack weighed just over four
pounds.
Finally, the day came and she
eagerly awaited boarding the plane
in Miami for the flight to Spain on
May 15. Just before her flight was
called, she decided to make one last
pit stop and it was then that disaster
struck.
When the airline clerk asked for
her passport, Boyett realized it was

OBITUARIES


Mary Ruth Pritchard
(Beasley) Barnard
Affectionately known as
'Nanny', passed from this life
three weeks after her 85th
birthday on July 30th. Born .July
12, 1927 in Swainsboro, GA,
Ruth was the third oft sevL\
Pritchard children. She was
preceded in death by her son
Greg Beasley, niece Bretl.da
Sartor, and husbands Wallace
Beasley, Sr. and Bob Barnard.
Ruth had a vibrant, engag-
ing personality with a zest for
-- ---.---.. life. In her
early lays,
i she was a
.- ,, "- regular at the
." skating rink;
as a young
m other she
.' was a Go-cart
.- .-. racing cham-
pion, and later a prize winning
bowler. Ruth's career was eqlual-
ly diverse, with experience in
hairstyling, banking, book-
keeping, newspaper delivery,
commercial cleaning, plant inte-
riorscapes, and property man-
agement ... in addition to her
number one job of raising 2
boys in Savannah, GA. Ruth
moved to Fernandina Beach in
1978, working for Demetri
Enterprises as Manager of
Summer Woods Apartments.
In Fernandina, Ruth found a
new love the beach. Hardly a
weekend passed where Ruth
wasn't found at the beach with
her family, sunbathing in her
bikini.
Ruth'retired' in 1990, to care
for her aging mother, and
moved to Orange Park, Fl,
across the street from her sis-
ter, Barbara. Here, Ruth turned
her abounding energy to the
outdoors, and used her green
thumb to transform her 1/2
acre lot to a floral wonderland.
(ne constant in Ruth's life
was her love for and commit-
ment to family. In addition to
raising her two sons, Ruth
became 'Nanny' and took an
active role raising grand-
daughters Lacie & Samantha.
During the years, she also pro-
vided a home for her brother
Roger, sister Helen, and moth-
er Alice. Ruth was an encour-
ager, cheerleader, and doer. If
one of her loved ones had a
need or desire, Ruth would find
a way to a solution and make it
happen. Her smile, personality
and sense of humor combined
with her determined spirit
engaged all who came in con-
tact with her.
Raised in the Baptist faith,
Ruth recommitted her rela-
tionship with Christ while at
Springhill Baptist Church in
Fernandina, and was baptized
by her son, Robert.
Ruth leaves behind her eld-
est son Robert, as patriarch of
the family to carry on in her
stead. She is also survived by
her loving sister Barbara Sartor,
who was her companion and
caretaker to the end. Two
brothers remain, Joe (Barbara)
& John (Julia) Pritchard, all of
Savannah, GA. All her 'girls':
Daughter (no 'in-law') Laura
Beasley and granddaughter
Jade of Fernandina Beach,
granddaughters Samantha
Beasley of St. Marys, GA, and
Lacie (Chris) Day with great-
granddaughter Sadie, of
Bloomingdale, GA, along with
step-granddaughter Jamie
(Ken) Lane and their 5 sons
also of Bloomingdale.

away quietly during her after-
noon nap this past Thursday,
August 2, 2012 at her Freedom
Village home in West Brandy-
wine, PA. She was a resident of
Freedom Village since moving
there in 2003 shortly after the
death of her husband of 55
years, Harden D. Vollmer. Julia
was born March 2, 1921 in
Philadelphia, PA.
She was baptized, raised in,
and married at Lansdowne
Presbyterian Church. She grad-
uated from Lansdowne High
School in 1939.

was during this time she met
her future husband, Harden,
an engineer at the Philadelphia
Naval Yard. They met at the
Governor's Estate and were
married six months later, on
Nov. 24,1945.
During their married life,
Julia and Harden were long-
time residents of Willoughby,
Ohio, where they raised their
three children. They'also lived
two years in Heidelberg,
Germany, when Harden was
posted on special assignment

ued passion for travel, visiting
many countries in both west-
ern and eastern Europe. She
continued her travels well into
her 70's, returning to Europe
multiple times and visiting Asia
as well. She was particularly
interested in the churches and
shrines, studying their archi-
tecture in detail.
Julia was an exceptional ath-
lete, excelling in basketball, ten-
nis, aid field hockey in high
school. She and her twin sister
Jane led their Lansdowne High
School basketball team to two
undefeated seasons in 1937-38

ued their basketball careers as
stars for the GE Women's
team in AAU's Philadelphia
Industrial League. Julia was a
high school coach of basket-
ball and tennis during the
1950's and later worked as a
volunteer official at major tennis
tournaments in Florida. To the
end, she followed the careers of
many of the international stars
she met.
In retirement, Julia and
Harden lived first in Miami, FL
and subsequently moved to
Fernandina Beach, FL. In
Florida, they were members
and officers of the Sherlock
Holmes Club,'reflecting her
enduring interest in reading,

Resort mishap being investigated


GARRETT PELICAN

A crane may have caused
the industrial accident at the
Omni Amelia Island Plantation
last week that left two workers
hospitalized after scaffolding
fell on them, according to a
police incident report.
Robert Neurock, a super-
intendent for Manhattan Con-
struction, told police that
Ruben Sapp and Michael
Tubbs, both of Jacksonville,
were injured about 9 a.m. Aug.
1 when the cable and hook of a
nearby crane wrapped around
the scaffolding above and
brought it down on top of the
pair.
Though trapped initially, the
men were freed and trans-
ported to Shands Jacksonville,
one by helicopter and another
by ambulance, on the heels of
the accident. Sapp, 50, remains
in good condition at Shands, a
hospital spokesperson said.
The hospital could not provide

VOTING Continued from 1A
SR 200, Suite 15
Hilliard Branch Library,
15821 CR 108
Early voting sites are not
open on Election Day voters
must cast ballots at assigned
polling place on Tuesday. Polls
are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
on Tuesday.
Voters should bring a cur-
rent and valid photo and signa-
ture identification in order to
vote. If voters do not have the
required identification, they will
be allowed to vote a provisional
ballot.
The last day to request a
mail ballot is today. Voters may
request a mail ballot from the
Elections Office in person, by
phone, mail' or online at
www.votenassau.com and select


Request a Vote by Mail Ballot.
Once the ballot has been
requested, voters can track the
status on the website by select-
ing My Voter Information.
It is important to make sure
the information and the signa-
ture on voter registration
records is current. The signa-
ture on mail ballots and provi-
sional ballots is compared to
the signature contained in the
record. If they don't match, the
ballot cannot be counted.
Having a current address
will avoid delays and paperwork
at the early voting site or polling
place and facilitate the delivery
of important election mail,
including mail ballots, sample
ballots and voter information
cards.
Voters who have moved
from outside of Nassau County


and are a registered voter in
Florida should call the elections
office to update their address
before going to vote. State law
requires out of county voters
updating their address at the
early voting site or polling place
to vote by provisional ballot,
which requires review by the
Nassau County Canvassing
Board for acceptance. Updating
an address before going to vote
will eliminate the provisional
ballot paperwork having to be
completed at the early voting
site or polling place.

research candidates, locate
polling places and more, visit

site at www.votenassau.com or

Health care reform:



What it means to you

JASON AIDI)RMAN -----
I o the Neo s 1.eader


Much was' made of the size
and complexity of the Patient
Protection and Affordable Care
Act when President Obama
signed it into law in 2010. But
now that the Supremne Court
has upheld much of the act 's
constitutionality, it's a good
time to review key provisions
that have already gone live and
to plot out what's expected to
happen in the next two years.
Changes already in place
include:
Children under 19 cannot
be denied coverage because of
preexisting conditions.
Adult children may remain
on parents' medical plan until
they turn 26.
Lifetime insurance Imaxi-
mum payouts were eliminated.
In addition, annual coverage
limits are being phased out.
Effective Sept. 23, the annual
limit increases to $2 million.
All new plans now nLust pro-
vide certain preventive servic-
es for free, such as mammo-
grams, immunizations and
colonoscupies.
People who've been refused
insurance because of preexist-
ing conditions may now be eli-
gible for coverage through a
"high-risk pbol" program. Go to
www.pcip.gov/ for information
and to apply online.

50 percent discount oil brand-
name prescription drugs 14
percent on generics. (These
discounts will gradually
increase until 2020 when the
doughnut hole will disappear.)
Many core features of the
Affordable Care Act'won't take
full effect until 2014 and details
are still being finalized, but
here are highlights of what's
expected.to happen between
now and then:
This month, insurance com-
panies that didn't spend at least
85 percent of 2011 premium
dollars for large group plans
(over 50 employees) on med-
ical care must refund the dif-
ference, through refund
checks or discounted future
premiums (80 percent for indi-
vidual or small group planss.
By Oct. 1, plans must begin
adopting rules for the secure
electronic exchange of health
information this will reduce
paperwork, costs and medical
errors.
By Jan. 1, new federal fund:
ing will be in place to slate
Medicaid programs that
choose to cover preventive
services to patients at little or
no cost.

funding to continue coverage
for children not eligible for
Medicaid.
Effective Jan. 1, 2014, most
key provisions will be in place.
For example:
Individuals and those
whose employers don't offer
health insurance will be able
to buy it directly from state-
based Affordable Insurance
Exchanges, which will offer a
choice of health plans that meet
certain benefits and cost stan-
dards.
Most who can afford basic
health coverage will be
required to obtain it or pay a fee
to offset the costs of caring for
uninsured Americans.
Americans earning less
than 133 percent of the pover-
ty level will be eligible to enroll
in Medicaid.
Refundable tax credits will
be available to those earning
between 100 and 400 percent of
the poverty level to help pay
for affordable insurance. They
also may qualify for reduced
copayments, coinsurance and
deductibles.
Annual coverage dollar
amount limits will be prohibit-
ed.
Adults will no longer be
refused coverage due to pre-
existing conditions.
Insurance companies will
no longer be able to charge
higher rates to individuals and
small groups due to gender or
health status.
These are only a few of the
many healthcare changes we'll
see as a result of the Affordable
Care Act. To learn more, visit

The pain in Spain is


plain -

At the risk of inducing a
self-inflicted coma, try digest-
ing the following financial
facts. It's surely the kind of
analysis that can cause mental
paralysis.
For every dollar collect-
ed by the U.S. government,
40 cents goes toward paying
the interest on the $14 trillion
national debt.
The average 401(k) bal-
ance at Fidelity Investments is
about $73,000. Fidelity is a
large custodian of 401 (k)
plans, which are offered by
businesses as a retirement
tool for employees.
*,The unemployment rate
in Spain is close to 22 percent,
dwarfed only by Greece. In
the U.S., the "underemploy-
ment rate" is quoted at about
15 percent (according to the
non-political Heritage
Foundation), and incorpo-
rates unemployment claims as
well as workers who have quit
looking or who have accepted
lower-paying jobs than before.

Depression.
However, the
dip we
endured in
2008 was so
severe that
it's common-
ly called "the
Great
Recession."
Makes
you feel
good about
things, does-
n't it? In
summary,
the national


debt is ominous, American
employees aren't saving
enough for retirement,
Europe is a complete mess
and the U.S. economy is inch-
ing along and probably
could not withstand a global
financial shock.
With this in mind, the elec-
tions this fall on local; state,
national and. international lev-
els are extremely important.
Continuing on a path of unbri-
dled spending and accelerat-
ing debt is a map for financial
collapse. (As a reference, see
Greece, Spain and Portugal.)
For these European coun-
tries, with nearly insurmount-
able debt, struggling banks,
; .and,.waningeconomies,, there ,,
arcenit many short-term nieas-
ures that can provide a reme-
dy. Longer term, a reduction


in government spending,
recapitalizing the banks and
fostering economic growth is
a.proven recipe for prosperity.
Even here in the U.S., the
national debt has gotten so
large that it is becoming an
economic burden. When
interest rates rise (which they
will at some point), consider
how much of each dollar in
tax revenues will go toward
paying interest then.
If we look into the mirror,
we can almost see ourselves
becoming another Spain if
something is not done. There
are even parallels being
drawn between the U.S. and
France, a country that
embraces socialism and
where the government has
gotten as big as the private
sector.
Once this occurs, paralysis
develops when the private
sector can't fund the gorern-
ment sector and its activi-
ties, retired workers and
interest on its debt.
Unfortunately, while Europe
is far away from here, this
sobering scenario is not.

Program accredited
The Sign Language Interpretation Associate
in Science degree program at Florida State
College at Jacksonville has been awarded
accreditation by The Commission on
Collegiate Interpreter Education. CCIE is the
accreditation board for interpreter education
programs.
With this accreditation, the FSCJ program
becomes one of only four A.S./A.A.S. degree'
programs in the nation to achieve this designa-
tion.
The vote for accreditation was based on the
FSCJ Sign Language Interpretation program's
compliance with the CCIE Accreditation
Standards, determined by a thorough review of
the program, including a site visit in March.
Noted as strengths of the.program were the
state-of-the-art Sign Lab, which recently under-
went a $250,000 renovation; and the availability
of specialized labs offering tutoring services as
well as support in the areas of reading, writing,
math, research instruction and information lit-
eracy.
FSCJ typically has around 35 students
enrolled in the Sign Language Interpretation
program (SLIP) at any given time, and pro-
duces about a dozen graduates annually.
There are about 300 students taking American
Sign Language courses during any given
semester.

A1A Solar Contracting, Inc., a Jacksonville-based solar installation company has com-
menced a 37-kilowatt commercial solar electric system (photovoltaic) on the City Hall
of Neptune Beach. According to a city official, it appears that Neptune Beach is the,
first city in Florida to utilize solar power on its City Hall. The 147-panel system will
use the majority of the roof area of the building and will generate approximately
50,000 kilowatt-hours per year and have a 30- to 35-year service life, saving the citi-
zens of Neptune Beach substantial ongoing operating costs and reducing 85,000
pounds of carbon dioxide emissions annually. Pictures of the project can be viewed at

"While some may choose to focus on politics and
personalities, I will continue to focus on my plans
to improve the Sheriffs Office. I am commirtcd to
protecting your family and defending our values.
I ask for your support and vote on August 14th."

STEP 1- Conduct an independent top to bottom review
of the agency, seeking recommendations for efficiencies,
redundant practices and agency needs.
STEP 2- Create an inspector general office within the agency to investigate
allegations, review investigative practices and conduct random case reviews
to help improve agency quality.
STEP 3- Establish a Sheriff's "Tax Watch citizen advisory board to review
the fiscal practices of the agency and ensure that tax dollars are being spent
in the most efficient manner possible and that the budget is placed on the
website.
STEP 4- Communication: Create greater access to the Sheriff with a direct
e-mail link and voice mail that allows the Sheriff to collect complaints,
concerns and needs from the citizens and provide regular'updates to the
citizens through all resources available.
STEP 5- Create a Special Investigative Unit to address the growing problem
of prescription drug use among Nassau County teens and young adults;
Create a citizen task force to work with Unit to expand educational
programs with elders, children and at risk youth groups.
STEP 6- Create a zero tolerance policy for elder or child abuse in Nassau
County Operation Redline (a Victims Rights Task force); It is my goal to
ensure that people who break the law bear the consequences of their
actions and I will not advocate for early release or reduced sentences.
STEP 7- Establish a law enforcement training standards academy that will
be composed of command staff and will involve law enforcement profes-
sionals from surrounding areas.
STEP 8- It is my goal to have a Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) officer on
duty at all times to respond to mental health calls. Those with special
needs should be handled carefully to ensure officer safety and the safety
of the citizens.

missing. Airline officials
immediately made announce-
ments but the passport was
nowhere to be found. A fran-
tic search of the restroom
came up empty and she was
unable to board.
"I stood there watching
that plane back out with tears
running down my face," she
recalled. "I couldn't believe it
was leaving without me."
The airline provided lodg-
ing in a nearby hotel and after
several additional announce-
ments, the passport was locat-
ed and she was able to fly out
the following day.

Upon arrival in Madrid,
Boyett made her way to St.
Jean Pied de Port where a
bus took her to a point 200
miles from her intended desti-
nation of Santiago de
Compostela.
Eager to begin her jour-
ney, Boyett walked 27 miles
the first day. It is a meditative
passage when solitary, and as
she walked, she reflected on
many sweet memories,
including precious ones of
her father reciting the 23rd
Psalm to her while she sat on
his knee as a little girl'
"I was walking one morn-
ing and the sun was so beauti-
ful ... and tender moments


It was a very special momentfor me that will
last throughout my time on Earth.'
DONNA BOYETT ON WALKINGTHE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO


would come back to me."
Boyett said even though
she was primarily walking
alone, she never had one
scary moment. The surround-
ings were so picturesque,
especially the colorful native
flowers, that this kept her
spirits high.
After long days of walking,
nights were spent in "refu-
gios" along the way. Some are
small; some are large with
long rows of old iron beds
lined up dormitory style, dou-
ble-decker, along the walls
and in the center of the room.
"I had to sleep on the top
bunk only one night. You
heard snoring, coughing and
plastic bags rustling in the
quiet of the night."
Morning's wake-up call
was pilgrims zipping and
unzipping their backpacks,
ready to get on their way.
"My sleep problem sure
did subside on the trip. I was
gone in about five minutes
from the time my head hit the
pillow," she said.

During one segment of her
journey, Boyett made friends


with a fellow pilgrim from
South Africa. Leaving the
refugio to begin their day's
journey, it was very misty and
dark.
"How are we going to see
where we're going?" asked
her new friend. "Oh, wait. I
have a flashlight."
Both women got out their
flashlights and Boyett
strapped a miner's light to her
forehead. Between the two of
them, they had enough light
to see the path.
As they carefully made
their way, they saw two small
red lights bobbing up and
down. Pilgrims ahead of them.
had strapped LE.D. lights to
their backpacks to alert oth-
ers to their presence. ,
"Just get behind a moving
backpack and you've got it
made!" said Boyett. "We'll just
follow them!"
The women identified the
hikers as pilgrims by the scal-
lop shell hanging from their
backpacks symbolizing the
walk's connection with St.
James. According to legend,
scallop shells covered the
saint's body when it was


Your taxes were raised last Monday night. Did you know?

Taxes weren't increased by the Board of County Commissioners; they were increased by the School Board. The
School Board, which has a completely separate budget from the County Commission, voted 3-2, (members Young
and Fahlgren cast dissenting votes), to raise the millage for capital outlays by 20%.

The administration said it was "necessary" and "required." Outwardly it appears taxes stayed the same overall, but
without this measure they would have fallen significantly.
I attended the school board's budget hearing and I have to say, I was disappointed. I expected to see teachers,
parents, and other taxpayers there shouting about what I can only describe as a gross misappropriation of funds. I
expected to see members of the media asking the difficult questions. I expected someone to stand up and say,
"This is MY money and fm not going to allow you to continue to tax me to death But there were only sixteen
people in attendance. Most were educators: teachers, principals, etc; three were candidates. Why was attendance
so low? Because the School Board made no wide attempt to publish the significance of the meeting. In addition,
the web stream cameras that are normally there to broadcast the meeting were missing. We, the parents and
taxpayers of this county, deserve better transparency from the School Board.

In addition to the tax increases, $2.5 million dollars were allocated to renovate the School Board building. That
means we're going to potentially spend $2.5 million dollars renovating an eighty year old administrative building.
Frankly, the blatant disregard for taxpayers money, your money, is appalling to me.

The School Board members who voted for these two measures were so enamored with the idea that they could do
it; they-never stopped to ask if they should. Nassau County cannot afford to allow the "tax and spend" behavior to
continue; not for another four years. Folks, you have the opportunity to change the dynamics of the school board.
During this campaign. fve found that what most people want is someone who will listen to them and someone
who will actually do what they say they're going to do. Simply talking about change isn't enough; we must be the
change, we wish to see. If you're ready for someone who will make a difference for you and your children, your
choice in this race is clear

Temperatures ranged from
50 degrees in the mornings to
about 70 degrees in the after-
noon. Most days were sunny
and beautiful, but Boyette did
encounter one rainy day. She
was prepared with a poncho
large enough to cover both
herself and her backpack, but
she was not prepared for the
hail.
"It was small, about the
size of a pea, but it went on
for a good 20 minutes and it
stung when it hit you."
She was grateful to come
upon a cafe soon after to stop
for good wine, coffee and
snacks.
"Always a welcome sight
to rest and enjoy the people
you meet. At one point, a gen-
tleman came by and serenad-
ed us with his bagpipes just
for fun."
Everyone she met along
the way was very friendly,
often calling out "iBuen
Camino!" a wish for safe pas-
sage along the trail.
* *
As she hiked the well-
marked, well-worn path past
steep fields and low valleys,
Boyett saw farmers out early
tilling the soil and harvesting
their crops.
The breathtaking scenery
included pastures of grazing
sheep and cows, and farm-
houses built of large stones
with mortar in between them,
hundreds of years old. The
roofs were either slate or red
tiles.
Boyette recalled seeing the
Spanish women tending to
their gardens, gathering fruits
and vegetables, clad in skirts
and blouses with bib aprons,
often with a scarf on their
heads.
"They were hard working
women. I'd wave at them and
they would wave back. They

happy!"
* *
All along the way, Boyette
saw crosses where people
had died.
'There was a fence at one
point that we saw that was
covered with small twig cross-
es made by pilgrims. So we
had to stop and make one and
put it there, too."
Although she is
Presbyterian, Boyett made it a-
point to stop at each of the&
small chapels, churches and
cathedrals along the-way. ,'
"I would go in and sit down
in the front row and thank the
good Lord that He'd given me
the strength to do this. :'

Pilgrims carry a document
called a credencial, which
gives them access to the' inex-
pensive, sometimes free refu-
gios where the document is
stamped. Once this has been
stamped at their final destina-
tion, the cathedral in
Santiago, they receive a docu-
ment called a compostela,
written in Latin. This official
certificate signifies comple-
tion of the journey. Pilgrims
are required to complete at
least 150 miles in order to
receive it.
At noon each day in the
Cathedral de Santiago where
the body of St. James is
entombed, a Pilgrim's Mass is

You can take


this with a


grain ofsalt

If there's one thing I've learned over the
years, it's that you should never generalize
about any group of people, even
Southerners. So take whatever you read
here with a grain of salt, which you're going
to do anyway if you're a Southerner.
Let's call these, "Observations from
Someone Who Has Lived in the South All of
His Life with the Exception of One Year in
Boston and Four Months
in Washington, D.C."
/ S "I've never met a fisher-
man who wasn't kind,
black or white. And those
relationships never get
talked about."
Actually, I didn't say
that. The quotation was
[OL attributed to C. Eric
FROM Lincoln, an Alabama native
THE and retired professor of
HOME religion and culture at
OFFICE Duke University. He's
right, you know. A person
who spends time on a
PhilHudgins stream or lake with noth-
ing on his mind but the
next bite is naturally a kinder person, espe-
cially if he's a Southerner. Does anyone dis-
agree?
Southerners are not necessarily friend-
'lier than other people; they're just not in as
biga hurry to get to the point
I defected to public relations for a year
and eight months, and I had two clients in
Indianapolis, an area I telephoned rather
often. Every time I called, whoever
answered said immediately, "Yes, what can I
do for you?" I wanted to ask how the weath-
er was, if the corn was drying up, how
Mama an' 'em were doing, but the
Midwesterner wanted me to get to the
point. I did.
When a Southerner says, "Yall come to
see us," it may be just an expression.
He or she doesn't necessarily want you
to drop over that evening. But if the
Southerner says, "Why don't y'all come
over tonight about 8 o'clock?" he's being
specific. That means y'all really should
come over.
On a per capital basis, the South doesn't
have any more strange or eccentric people
than the rest of the nation.
The reason you might notice them more
in the South is because we don't try to hide
them. In the South, folks in a small town
know Uncle Harold is kind of funny, and
they accept him the way he is. They're
peculiar, but they're our'n.
Southerners, men and women, are better
cooks.
That's because they know what needs to
be cooked and what doesn't. You cook
green beans until they're done (which
means they're not crunchy), but, as a rule,
you don't cook tomatoes. And you don't put
sugar in cornbread.
"Any good Southerner ought to be able
to talk or pray for five minutes without
preparation."
I didn't say that, either. That came from
Dan Carter, a professor in the humanities.
Mr. Carter stretched it a bit; a five-minute
prayer spoken in public might be too long.
But a five-minute conversation is not too
much for a Southerner, especially my wife,
even in the grocery store, unless she's in
the Express Lane.
You can't pull the wool over a
Southerner's eyes in anything except pro-
fessional wrestling.
I did say that.

ence. It takes a second or two to
eject a li' .ilJ.l slap :iorl,,l clip into
place. 1 his li !r tar, ,-p,: idling upon
a person's practice and experience.
I would ask those folks who
agree with the writer of "Renew
assault weapons ban" (Aug. 3) to
walk into any bank and just pause
and look around. Do you see all the
cameras? Do you know these banks,
for many years now, have alarms?
How about those dye packs placed
in the money? Not to mention the
fact it's against the law to rob a bank.
So I ask, take all these things into
account and are banks still robbed?
So we know people do not always
obey the law;'if you don't believe
me, just take a drive from the island
to 1-95 on A1A and note the numbers
of speeders and I'll bet you will see
at least one "red-light" crasher!
Phil Scanlan asks "those who
really care about reducing these
massacres to call the NRA and ask
them to stop opposing the assault
weapons ban." Hey Phil, did you
ever read a story about suicide
bombers? These crazed people did-
n't use assault weapons! How did
Timothy McVeigh kill all those peo-
ple in Oklahoma? You see, folks, if
there is a will there certainly is a
way.
Mr. Scanlan's article had many
points which are little more than lib-
eral "dreams." For example, "the
1994 assault weapons ban reduced
crimes with assault weapons by 66
percent. Therefore, it is 'possible'
that it could have reduced the num-
ber of people shot and killed in
assault weapons massacres over the
past eight years by 66 percent."
Possible? I suppose if all weapons
were banned there would be no vio-
lent crimes.
The "opinion" regarding the
Second Amendment giving the
Amirican people the right to keep
and bear arms, per Scanlan, "was
intended to support security in the.
U.S., not reduce it." Onto the
thought: "some military type
weapons should not be for public
consumption." This is one statement
I agree with, and yet when machine
guns were banned did this stop
mass murder in our country?
At some point in time those anti-
gun folks need to recognize the fact
the gun is no more than a tool of
death for some crazed people. A tool
which may be replaced by a differ-
ent tool very easily. The assault on
our Constitutional rights never ceas-
es in this country. God Bless
America and may we never aban-
don our Constitutional rights and
liberties!

"Guncontrol
Re: "Renew assault weapons
ban," Aug. 3.
I am so very tired and impatient
with the anti-gun individuals who


insist on using the very worn-out
terms aimed at the elimination of
the Second Amendment. Claims
like, eliminate the sale of anything
more than a single-round magazine.
Another is "assault weapon." So also
is one's fist an assault weapon or a
softball bat. The word "assault"
sounds so much more desperate
than just weapon, and boringly over-
used in anti-gun lexicon.
Phil Scanlan wrote of possibly
knowing some folks in Aurora, Colo.
As if that gave him a special reason
to write of those horrible moments
in time at the Aurora theatre.
If one wishes to write about a
subject, go ahead. You do not need
an excuse.
I am involved in the right to bear
arms. Eighteen years a member of
the NRA, National Rifle Association.
Six years a member of the NRA
high-power rifle match team. This
was an excellent hobby yielding
recreation, education, fellowship,
marksmanship, safety and rifle main-
tenance. Almost all of us were active
duty military or veterans. It has to be
noted the NRA is very strong in
youth training programs.
Yeah, we assaulted those paper
targets every Sunday morning at
Camp Blanding and Gateway Rifle
Range. I miss the compatriotism as
I am gaining on the August time of
my life.
Mr. Scanlan thought it was a
good idea to call the NRA and ask
them to stop these massacres. I
agree, write or call Eric Holder at the
Department of Justice. Ask him
about "Fast And Furious." Ask him
to stop creating the means to devel-
op even more massacres. Ask
Holder was "Fast and Furious" a
way to denigrate and destroy the
Second Amendment by claiming the
guns were sold by U.S. gun deal-
ers? Ask about the death of the U.S.
border guard. Has the government
apologized to his family or to the
,U.S.?
Then there is Chicago. Among
the tightest gun control cities in the
U.S. It is also known as the murder
capital of the world. You know, Mr.
Scanlan, I actually feel guilty, kind of
like a cheap shot about bringing up
the Chicago situation. Although you
anti-gunners use every cheap shot
possible. This seems to be a black on
black crime with political and social


issues far beyond this letter writer.
I suspect a long-term study for the
social, political sciences.

Election Day
The local Chapter #6408 of the
AARPwants to remind (you need to
remember) the importance of voting
you have that privilege and obli-
gation to do so.
On Tuesday, Aug. 14, the vari-
ous county, state and national elec-
tions will be held all over this coun-
try. Many of the future local issues
*and decisions will rest on whom we
all vote for in these primary con-
tests. The future of this county and
country could depend on who you
vote for on the 14th and in
November.
Many of us have been inundated
with political mail, emails, newspa-
per and TV ads, and most of them
negative stuff about their other can-
didates. It is sad when we have to
rely on this in any election so you
best get your information from other
sources, know your candidates,
judge them and remember they are
there to serve you and the country.
Also, remember that the General
Election will be on Nov. 6.
Please vote!
If you see or hear of someone
who hasn't voted remind them to
do so! Take them to their voting
place if necessary.
John Megna, President
AARP Chapter #4608

Butter Bean
The phone at RAIN Humane
Society rang early Thursday morn-
ing with a small request on the other


end, an animal was in need of help.
Nassau County Aqimal Services res-
cued a young 6-month-old bull/
hound mix who had been attacked
by three other dogs running at large
in his neighborhood.
Little Butter Bean was in his yard
when some of the neighbors wit-
nessed the vicious attack. Several
people had come to Butter Bean's
aid, but it was too late, he had
already been severely mauled. After
the Nassau County Animal Control
officer obtained the pet into cus-
tody, Butter Bean was transported to
4-Paws Vet Clinic, where Dr. Sheila
Norstrud began working on piec-
ing him back together.
Several hours later, Butter Bean
was looking much better, but has
numerous drain tubes, only half an
ear and countless sutures. He is
looking a little bit like Franken-
Puppy, but still just as cute as can
be.
RAIN Humane Society was'
happy to take on the job of fostering
this pet and helping Little Butter
Bean make a full recovery. RAIN
Humane Society would also like to
recognize the care and compassion
shown by Nassau County Animal
Services in going the extra mile at
obtaining emergency vet care for
him, and a big thank-you to Dr.
Sheila Norslrud and her veterinari-
an skills.
Butter Bean is resting very com-
fortably at one of our board mem-
ber's home, and is eating, drinking,
and even wagging his tail.
RAIN Humane Society must take
this opportunity to please stress how
important it is to follow our county
ordinances and keep your pets con-
tained at all times, not letting them
run free.
The Animal Control officer was
told during his investigation that the
three male dogs that attacked little
Butter Bean were in pursuit of a
female dog who was also running at
large and in heat. Yet another reason
to have your pet spayed/neutered.
Little Butter Bean could have died
from his injuries, or worse, been
killed in his -own yard, had it
not been for the neighborhood
Good Samaritans, Nassau County
Animal Services and 'Dr. Sheila
Norstrud.

When visitors stop in at the
historic train depot at the corner
of Front and Centre streets in
downtown Fernandina Beach,
chances are concierge Richard

His smiling face has been a
fixture at the welcome center
for 12 years.
"I greet the visitors and
answer their questions, and
let them know about available
activities. I like meeting peo-
ple."
Visitors from all over the
world make their way to Amelia
Island, says Bradford. He has
met people from South Africa,
Russia, Europe and South
America.
The big question on most of
their minds is where to eat.
Bradford said tourists often ask
where he goes or where other
locals like tp dine.
"They also want directions
to various places or to find out
about fishing and carriage
rides," said Bradford.
Visitors can look through
pamphlets from local attrac-
tions, pick up island maps, hotel
brochures and restaurant
menus or read a flyer about the
history of the island.
Photos of Fernandina in
bygone days adorn the walls
and there's an antique safe com-
plete with pirate treasure.

HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader
The American Red Cross
volunteer is a welcome sight for
those who have experienced a
disaster, whether it is a house
fire, hurricane or flood.
Bob Keane has been that
friendly face for 20 years, 18 of
them in Florida. He joined the
organization after retirement in
hopes of finding a way to bene-
fit others. Now he's the coordi-
nator of the local Disaster
Action Team.
Keane has seen his share of
disasters, from tornadoes, flood-
ing and hurricanes to forest and
house fires.
His most recent deployment
was to Hilliard Middle-Senior
High School to help oversee the
shelter opened following
Tropical Storm Debby.
"The people are always very
thankful that we're there to


Keane

help," he said of the stressed
recipients of the organization's
solace.
After doing the snowbird
thing for seven or eight years,
the retired engineer grew
weary of the annual migration
between here and Lummi
Island in Washington State. He
made Amelia Island his perma-
nent home in 2000.
"I like the environment, the


climate and the people," said
Keane.
Leisure pursuits include the
Men's Newcomers Club and
the Amelia Island Genealo-
gical Society. Keane's grown
children are Bob Jr., Joanne and
Judy.
Whether it's finding a place
to stay for a displaced family,
working the county's emer-
gency information hotline dur-
ing hurricanes, running emer-
gency shelters or participating
in and presenting disaster train-
ing, American Red Cross vol-
unteers provide valuable help
in times of trouble.
Volunteers are needed to
serve periodically on the local
Nassau County Disaster Action
Team. To learn more about the
American Red Cross, make a
donation or volunteer call (904)

Adam Barry, an assistant pro-

"By recognizing the impor-

questionnaires to examine the

of secondary school students,
college students and young
adults. Once collected, the data
is made available for evaluation
by other researchers.
Barry's study focused on
data collected from 14,577 high
school seniors from 120 public
and private schools.
He evaluated whether the
students had ever used any of
11 substances, including licit
substances such as alcohol and
tobacco, as well as illicit sub-
stances like marijuana, cocaine,
heroin, LSD, amphetamines,
tranquilizers and other nar-
cotics. The results indicated that
alcohol, not marijuana or tobac-


cent of students reported using
tobacco, and 43.3 percent cited
marijuana use.
In addition, the drug use
documented found that sub-
stance use typically begins with
the most socially acceptable
drugs, such as alcohol and cig-
arettes, then proceeds to mari-
juana use and finally to other
illegal, harder drugs. Moreover,
the study showed that students
who used alcohol exhibited a
significantly greater likelihood
- up to 16 times of licit and
illicit substance use.
"These findings add further
credence to the literature iden-
tifying alcohol as the gate'xay
drug to other substance use,"
he said.

My years of backyard gar-
dening in North Florida have
attuned me to wildflowers.
When I first set up my garden 10
or more years ago I was eager to
put native plants along the pond
edge, and in the butterfly garden
to attract winged visitors. 'Not
all of these plantings worked out
well.
One success, but too much
so, was an ironweed plant that I
purchased at the Gainesville
farmers market. The sign on the
small plant said, "Great butterfly
attractor," and
that's all it
took to get
me interest-
ed. I took this
little plant
home and
found a
prominent
spot for it
front and cen- WILD
ter in my but- WAYS
terfly garden
area. And like
Jack's bean- Pat
stalk, it grew Foster-Turley
and grew and
grew, turning into a big rangy
plant with flowers, yes, but too
high to see, way up in the clouds
it seemed to me. And I had to
face it, the plant was ugly. It drew
attention to its shaggy self and
overpowered all its delicate flow-
ering neighbors. One day in a fit
of angst I cut it down, dug it out
and removed it.
Another early native plant
purchase of mine was a button-
bush. I'd studied native plant
guides and fixed on this bush, a
fine addition to the side of the
pond, tolerant of wet feet and
dry spells, with little white balls
of flowers that are said to be fa-
grant and to attract butterflies
and bees. This plant was hard to
find for sale though. I looked
through all the nearby nurseries
and talked it up to all my friends.
Andt finally my Gainesville
friends Jo and Jamie Welch
found one in a nursery near
them and gave it to me as a
housewarming gift. I happily
planted it beside the pond, and
never noticed it again, nestled
there among the other green-
er.y at the pond edge.
Until this year, that is. One
morning this spring I walked
along the pond edge, a route Ive
traveled thousands of times
before, and noticed something
new. What is that? A bush with
little white, fluffy balls f flowers?
My buttonbush! 1.01 h.i it takes
10 years to flower or, as Bucko
said, maybe I was always gone
when it bloomed in the spring,
but anyway, there is was, front
and center; blooming away, just
like my dreams of year-s ago. A
swallowtail butterfly noticed it
too.
And now, this summer I'm
noticing ironweed again too. It's
not in my yard I never repeat-
ed that mistake. But it is all over
the place once you look for it. A
good place to find it now is along
the loop road to Kingsley
Plantation. Here the tall i 11.. .
ironweed with clusters of pur-
ple tui,, i., six or more feet
above the ground line the road-
way. Any place where dappled
sun hits the oak forest floor, iron-
weed thrives. In the forest, with
trees overhead and taller shrubs
around, ironweed indeed is a
beautiful thing to behold.
And what a butterfly attractor
it is too! On one drive around
the road, I stopped my car to
look more closely at the butter-
flies visiting the ironweed flow-
ers. Pairs of swallowtail butter-
flies chased each other in
between stops to replenish their
nectar supplies. At one time I
could count more than 20 swal-
lowtails, all flitting around the
ironweed.
In and among the swallow-
tails, two other butterfly species
made their appearance t(x). Gulf
fritillaries, those small orange
spotted butterflies were also
attracted to the ironweed, but
only as singletons. While the
swallowtails were busy court-
ing, these butterflies set to the
business at hand, feeding. And
an even rarer sight still, a Julia
heliconian butterfly, a bit out of
its main range in southern
Florida, also drifted from one
ironweed flower to another, a
good sighting for sure.
So maybe I should have kept
that tall, ugly ironweed plant in
my butterfly garden and over-
looked 11 months of ugliness
for its one month-long flower-
ing show. But there's no need for
that. Now I know just where to
look to find them in nature, no


longer looking tall and straggly
and ugly, but instead right at
home in the understory of the
hardwood canopy.
And you can find it there too
if you look. It's the dog days of
summer, yes, but it's also
prime wildflower and butterfly
season.

led Yulee to 13 wins


BETH JONES
News Leader

An injured finger on her
pitching hand didn't slow
down Yulee sophomore Karla
Beasley during the 2012 soft-
ball season.
"When I started throwing
my screwball a while back, I
guess it just put so much
stress on that finger, it stays
swollen," she said. "I just kind
of pushed through it. I really
couldn't do anything."
Beasley, 16; who trans-
ferred to her hometown
school in Yulee after two sea-
sons at Episcopal, shares the
most valuable title in Nassau
County with fellow sopho-
more, West Nassau pitcher
Morgan Williams.
"Morgan, she's a great
pitcher," Beasley said.
The two teams battled all
season but West Nassau
declared victory in all, includ-
ing the district title game.
"It was a really good
game," Beasley said. "We had
them. Pretty sure we went
extra innings. They had time-
ly hits.
'They beat us every time
we played them."
Beasley is looking forward
to next season when theTLady
Hornets mostly sopho-
mores and freshmen with the
exception of senior Audrey
Boren this spring return to
the field in 2013 as seasoned
veterans.
"Next year, boy. We have
something coming. We're
going to be good," Beasley
said.
Beasley was a double
threat to her opponents this
season. Not only did she steer
Yulee to 13 wins during a sea-
son when they fledgling Lady
Hornets faced 14 playoff
teams three reached the
Final Foui and one won state
(Gulliver Prep) but she
also had 12 home runs at the
plate.
"Karla hit 12 home runs
this year, the most in the his-
tory of both Yulee High
School and West Nassau High
School in fastpitch," YHS
Coach Candy Hicken said.
"Never in my years of coach-
ing have we had an individual
athlete hit that many home


runs. That is simply amaz-
ing."
Beasley, who also manned
third base when not on the
mound, hit .469, had 49 RBIs,
a 1.172 slugging percentage
and a .583 on-base percentage
this season. Seven of her
home runs came against play-
off teams:
As Yulee's starting pitcher
- she stepped into the role,
replacing an injured Sierra
Mills Beasley had an
earned run average of 1.7 and
she sent 147 batters back to
the dugout with strikeouts.
"She did all this on a team
with just one senior," Hicken
said. "In all our years coach-
ing softball, she had one of
the best years we have had a
player ever have."
Beasley spent two years at
Episcopal but transferred
back to Yulee's schools be-
cause of her driver's license.
"Since I was going to be
driving, my parents didn't
want me driving because it
takes about 45 minutes to get
there," said Beasley, 16. "So,
they were just kind of worried
about me driving all the way
over there.
"In a day, picking me up
and dropping me off was
about three hours."
Beasley said the traii,-i ;,
was painless.
"I went to Yulee sixth and
seventh grade and switched
to Episcopal eighth and ninth
and then halfway through this
year," Beasley said. "I knew a
good part of this team or I'd
heard of them, especially
Sierra and Hayley (Solomon).
I've known them for a while.
'They all welcomed me, so
it wasn't too hard."
Beasley started playing
ball at the tender age of 4 in
Yulee, making her way
through T-ball and recreation
hardball before moving on to
travel softball.
"I moved into travel ball
and that's where I am now,"
she said.
Beasley just wrapped up
her summer season with the
Jacksonville Storm.
Now a junior at Yulee,
Beasley is already practicing
on her own to prepare for
next spring. Pitching practice
is Tuesday and TFli--.l, -


Beasley transferred to Yulee for her sophomore year and
stepped into the role of starting pitcher for the Lady
Hornets. She was a force to be reckoned with on the
mound and at the plate. She won 13 games for Yulee,
which took on 14 playoff teams in the spring three
made it to the final four and one was a state champ. She
struck out 147 batters. At the plate, Beasley hit. 469
with 49 RBIs and a .583 on-base percentage.


"I have a personal trainer,"
she said. "Softball, I think a
lot of people underestimate it.
You have to put a lot of work
into it."
Beasley said she had no
idea after her first homer last
season, she would end up
with 12. Her season high had
been four.
"I think with the first one,
you get the feel of it and the
next one's going to be easier,"
Beasley said. "Then again, it
gets harder because (pitch-
ers) start figuring it out."
Seven of those home runs
came against playoff con-
tendtrs.
"I usually do better in pres-
sure situations like faster
pitching," said Beasley, a
straight-A student who is also
apparently a good singer,
dancer and artist in her own
right.
"I like drawing,".she said.


If there's one thing Beas-
ley's not good at, according to
her mother, it is cleaning her
room.
"My mom's a neat freak so
it's not that bad," Beasley
said.
Despite two more seasons
at Yulee, Beasley is looking
ahead.
"I definitely want to go to
I ..II c. and do something in
the medical field," she said. "I
have some big hopes and
goals.
"I would love to play in the
SEC. This is my big year to
talk to colleges."
Beasley said she's heard
from the University of Virgin-
ia and, over the summer, went
to camps at Georgia and
Alabama.
"I loved the University of
Georgia," she said. "I got

team to playoff berth

With three shutouts, a 1.4
earned run average and 16
wins, Morgan Williams is.co-
most valuable player of the
all-Nassau County softball
team. She shares the honor
with Karla Beasley from
Yulee.
The West Nassau pitcher
threw 149 strikeouts in 157
innings her sophomore year.
"Morgan is just an ath-
lete," Lady Warrior coach
Randalyn Bryant said. "She
has always been an athlete,
but I feel this year she finally
learned to compete. Her
competitiveness kept us in
ball games."
The Lady Warriors ad-
vanced to the Elite Eight this
year, defeating Yulee to earn
the district championship
before defeating Episcopal
5-1 in postseason play. ,
They continued on to
beat Yulee 7-4 to face Florida
High. An error in the first
inning led to the team's one-
run loss and hit Williams
hard.
"I seriously thought we
were going to come back the
last inning," she said.
Now she's determined
more than ever for the Lady
Warriors to make it to the
Final Four in 2013.
Her late father, Christo-
pher Williams, helped build
her love of the game.
"I wouldn't have made it
without my dad," Williams
said. "He forced me to play
softball when I wanted to do
cheerleading."
They spent hours honing
her pitching skills. When
she briefly decided to be a
catcher, her father support-
ed that, as well as the switch
back to pitcher.
"We had a pitching
mound in the backyard and
we'd practice hitting every
night," Williams said. "It's
just kind of hard now, be-
cause I'm in high school and
he's not here to help me."
Her mother, Sandy, and
brother, C.J., continue to
support her.
"My mom supports me
throughout everything and
she takes me to tourna-


ments," Williams said.
"She's just always there for
me."
The first time she hit a
home run, C.J., now 8, came
running up to the fence to
scream, "Good job."
This summer Williams
played travel ball for Jax
Players, traveling to
Alabama to compete in
nationals. She plays first
base and pitcher for the
team. She also plays volley-
ball for West Nassau, but
softball is her top sport.
"I just love, like, the
excitement about it and the
rush you get," she said. "1
just go after the hitters and
everything and try to do my
best. I have a great defense
behind me."
Aside from West
Nassau's final game in 2012,
the most memorable game
was when the team defeated
the Lady Hornets for the
county championship.
"It just felt great to be on
top for county," Williams
said, adding that Beasley is
also a great pitcher.
"Karla, she's an awesome
pitcher. She goes after the
hitters too and her bat is
strong."
When Williams takes the
mound, she tries to clear her
head and remember the best
advice she's ever been
given, "Just do Morgan."
That advice led her to throw'
three shutouts and earn a
16-10 record on the mound,
including 149 strikeouts.
"I am a tough coach to
play for and I expect a lot
from my players," Bryant
said. "Morgan learned not to
take it I" i---n. ll :, and just
buck up and play. She did
not point fingers and when
errors were made, she
learned to work past it and
get the next one.
"She has matured on and
off the field and will be a
leader for us the next two
years.
Also earning spots on the
all-county team from West
Nassau are Courtney Smith
and Taylor Swafford.
"Courtney and Taylor are
both down and dirty kids
that will do what it takes to
win," Bryant said.

king tops NSFA rodeo


John and Barbara Adcox of
Jacksonville braved rough
seas, topped off with a 40-mile
run to their pre-determined
kingfish waters to win the
30th annual Fernandina
Beach Kingfish Tournament
& Fishing Rodeo over the
weekend.
"Barbara and I had to wait
for the live bait man to show
up at the Dee Dec Bartel boat
ramp, giving us a 30-minute
late start," John Adcox said.
"Once we cleared the St.
Marys jetty rocks, we began
experiencing a bumpy off-
shore ride, the result of a
brisk sea breeze.
"During our day of king-
fishing, Barbara Ann also
encountered three storms
and an even bumpier ride
back to the'tournament site."
John and Barbara Adcox
regularly compete on the
Southern Kingfish
Association tournament trail
and have placed well through-
out their years of king mack-
erel competition. Saturday,
however, topped all of their
experiences on the coveted
SKA tournament trail.
"Somewhere around 11:30
a.m. we had' a big strike on a
ribbonfish that was trolled
some 60 feet deep with aid of
our Cannon electric Mag-10
downrigger," John Adcox
said. "Barbara took the rod
and reel while I cleared the
rest of the kingfish lines and
it was fight on."
He said her hooked fish
ran deep like a wahoo, mak-
ing several long and deep
runs. Barbara Adcox played
her fish like it was a big king,
allowing the fish to run at will
in hopes that the long runs
would soon tire out her
hooked gamefish.'
"Finally Barbara Ann's fish
came to the surface and we
were very excited to see that
it was a truly large king mack-
erel," John Adcox said. "I was
prepared with our boat's long
handled gaff, gaffing Barbara
Ann's kingfish just behind the
head.
S'While swinging the large
king into the boat, the king-
fish hooks simply dislodged
from the side of the kingfish
and fell out onto the floor. We
were extremely lucky."
Back at the tournament
weigh-in scales, team Barbara
Ann Adcox's big king macker-
el weighed 38.8 pounds, tak-
ing top honors in the Nassau
Sport Fishing Association's
30 annual Kingfish
Tournament & Fishing
Rodeo.
John and Barbara Ann
Adcox compete on their 35-
foot Welcraft, powered by
triple 250-hp Yamaha out-
boards and, with several top
10 tournament wins under
their belt, they made the
Fernandina Beach kingfish
event their very first tourna-
ment win.

held down first place in the
dolphin category with a 7.76-
pound dolphin and Bear Croft
weighed in the largest cobia
at 19.8 pounds.
Matt Davis weighed in the
largest redfish at 7.03 pounds.
Terry Sturgeon took top sea
trout honors with a 3.06-
pound speckled trout. David
Smith checked in an eight-
spot redfish for top honors in
the redfish with the most
spots category. Chris Beasley
weighed in the largest
sheepshead at 2.86 pounds
and Michael Powel took top
flounder honors with a 5.22-
pound flounder.
SRich Heiman took first
place in the small boat divi-
sion with a 24.72-pound king
mackerel. George Smith and

team, John Adcox was first
with a 38.80-pound kingfish.
Todd Applewhite was second
with a 34.72-pound kingfish.
Dale Turner came in third
place with a 30.80-pound king-

First-place lady angler
honors went to Kristy Turner
with a 24.66-pound kingfish
and Teresa Owens took sec-
ond with a 19.80-pound king-
fish.
News-Leader Publisher Foy
Maloy sponsored the $500
and a $500 savings bond for
the top junior angler. SKA
managing partner Jack
Holmes sponsored a $500 jun-
ior angler award as well.
Zach Skipper was crowned
the top junior angler for his


24.12-pound kingfish. Skipper
is quite the fisherman as he
has now won four SKA junior
angler awards. Chase Wright
came in second with a 20.80-
pound king mackerel.
Members of the Nassau
Sport Fishing Association,
including President John
Hatrich and tournament
director Joe Wise, once again
presented a first-class fishing
event for both local and out-
of-town competitive fisher-
men.
A total of 98 fishing boats
competed in the one-day tour-
nament, which was held at


the Fernandina Harbor
Marina.
The event got under way
Friday evening with a.cap-
tain's meeting and barbecue,
followed by Sounds on

ment fishermen experienced
three rain squalls and some-
what unpredicted choppy
seas. However, lots offish
were weighed in and the tour-
nament was deemed a huge
success.

'Camp R

I just finished rehab. Don't get
any ideas. I am not going through a
probationary period after prison
release or recovering from some
addiction. The rehab was to help in
my recovery from rotator cuff sur-
gery. After months of suffering a
pesky pain in my shoulder, I made
an appointment with my favorite fix-
it doctor, Greg Smith. "Senioritis"
had struck again. It was confirmed
that years of tennis had stressed the
rotator cuff and a surgical repair to
clean out and repair all the bits and
pieces that are supposed to make a
shoulder work was needed. So, once
again to the operating table.
The last few years the Big Guy
and I have been taking turns getting


:ehab' perfect for what ails the body


2 body parts repaired
or replaced. So it
was my turn to be
., the patient and his
". ,. turn to be nurse.
j We have gotten
S pretty good at it.
wL e So in early
morning darkness
we arrived at Out-
FROM Patient Surgery at
THE Baptist Medical
Center Nassau for
PORCH our latest adven-
ture in body repair.
Dickie As frequent flyers,
Anderson we were greeted by
the wonderfully
friendly and efficient folks who pre-


pare patients for their surgery. All
went well and after my muffin and
juice, I was on my way home with a
wonderful invention the ice
machine. It looks like a cooler with a
tube attached and delivers ice-cold
water to the body part needing it. It
requires the addition of ice periodi-
cally. The ice machine was my friend
24 hours a day for many days.
No rest for the weary, or in my
case the operated on. Surgery
Wednesday and physical therapy on
Friday. Arriving at rehab, I signed in
and soon felt like I was at day camp.
Entering a large room, I noticed that
everyone was busy working on
some sort of activity. Bright colored
balls. Contraptions inviting interac-


tion. Stationary bikes. Orange and
blue stretchy strips tucked into a
closed door offering resistance.
My first day I ran into an old
friend and asked her, "What are you
in for?" Turns out she was several
weeks ahead of me after having the
same surgical repair. She offered me
advice and hope for the future.
First step was a basic assessment
and setting goals. Then a series of
exercises was prescribed. I went
around to each of the stations
assigned and worked through repeti-
tions designed tb make my new
shoulder joint stronger. There were
also some assignments to work on at
home. Most important was the ongo-
ing encouragement each time I


came to day camp.
So my new routine included
three days a week at Camp Rehab. I
got to know the regulars who
were all coming back from some
sort of surgery knees and shoul-
ders seem to be the best sellers. We
all shared our successes and
progress.
I graduated. Shoulder still
healing, but now I am on my own
and will continue the'exercises
prescribed by my day camp coun:
selors!

You're going to love
Wilbur! He's a beautiful, pure-
bred Basset Hound, and
about two years old. He has a
great smile and a luxurious,
lustrous coat. He has big,
silky ears that feel like velvet!
He was found on the beach
and we believe he must have
been someone's pet. We think
he's housebroken, and if not
he should be easy to train. He
walks well on his leash and
he's also very affectionate. He
loves to cuddle, especially
when you rub his ears, and
he's a "leaner" he leans into
you for all the loving he can
get. We think he'd be a fine
addition to any home.
Anna Belle is an extremely
sweet and loving kitty with
amazingly beautiful green
