A after performing military
honors at funerals in
Nassau County since
1998, three dedicated vol-
unteers are retiring.
"As much as we hate to step
aside, it's getting to the point where
it's hard for us to do it. We don't
want to do a half job. We'd rather not
do*it at all," said detail leader Ted
Davis, who has played Taps at about
600 funerals.
When he found himself in the
hospital with pneumonia in January,
the retired 18-year Army veteran
knew the day was fast approaching
when he'd have to lay down his
bugle.
Left with only half a lung after
exposure to Agent Orange in
VietnamDavis no longer has the
stamina necessary to perform his
duties.
The other two members of the
Honor Guard have also reached the
limits of their strength due to age
and health challenges.
"We are getting older and it's
time to hang it up," said Jimmy
Mayer, who served his country from
1959 to 1963 in the Air Force and
then did a 26-year stint in the Army.
Mayer had hip replacement surgery

the third member of the trio, 75-
year-old Gail Davis. No relation to
Ted, Davis quips, "He's from west
Tennessee and I'm from east
Tennessee."
The former Marine served six
years in the Corps followed by four
years as an aircraft mechanic in
California. He also served on a carri-
er in the Pacific.
"Back in 2000 and 2001, we were
doing 30-40 funerals a year but since
the national cemetery opened in
Jacksonville, our requests have
dropped off greatly," he said.

OBITUARIES


Dorothy Brewster
Brainard
We regretfully announce
that Dorothy Brewster
Brainard, a longtime resident
of Nassau County, died at the
home of her loving daughter
Nancy Brainard Barton and Dr.
Paul C. Barton at Valley Springs,
California on August 5th, 2012.
Dorothy was born in
Callahan, Florida on October
13th, 1918, to Neela Mclaughlin
Brewster and Dr. Warren
Augustus Brewster, a physician
in Callahan from 1906-1946.
Dorothy was the last of a
Florida-Georgia branch of the
historically significant Brewster
family that originated with the
elder of the Pilgrims, William
Brewster, of Plymouth, Mass.
Dorothy
grew up in
Callahan. She
loved the out-
doors and
sports, and
was a member
of the girls'

basketball
teams. She
was an avid
reader and a
top student in
math. She
graduated
valedictorian
of Callahan
High School in 1936. Dorothy
attended Florida State College
for Women (FSU), Duke
University, and graduated from
Madison College in 1938. In
1937, Dorothy first met her
future husband, Marshall
Deforest Brainard, who was at
the time a University of Florida
student Marshall was the son of
Dr Forrest J. Brainard, who had
opened a mill for the manufac-
ture of wood veneer produce
baskets outside of Callahan in
1936. In 1939, upon receiving
her teaching certificate,
Dorothy followed in the foot-
steps of her mother Neela, her
aunt Adine Bell Mclaughlin, and
her older sister Neela Brewster,
to teach school in Nassau
County. Dorothy would contin-
ue to teach until she married
Marshall Brainard, then a Navy
Reserve flight officer, in
Callahan on June 9th, 1944.
In 1946 Dorothy and
Marshall moved from Callahan
to San Jacinto, California, where
Dorothy gave birth to daugh-
ter Noa:c'V McLaughlin Brainard
in' 1947, and son William
Brewster Brainard, in 1949. In
1952 Dorothy and Marshall
returned with their young fam-
ily to the southside of
Jacksonville. In Jacksonville
Dorothy was instrumental in


NLE MoNUMENT
COMPANY, INC,


277-4499
14h & Atlantic


assisting her husband in start-
ing his business, Physicians
Service Bureau, which at its
height would provide profes-
sional services to about half of
the physicians in Jacksonville.
Dorothy also became very
active in the arts at the
Jacksonville Art Museum and
gave enthusiastic support to her
two children to pursue their
artistic careers in music, paint-
ing, and architecture. In 1978, as
they approached retirement,
Dorothy and Marshall returned
to Nassau County to be among
the first residents to live on the
picturesque east bank of
Lanceford Creek when a por-
tion of the original Barnwell
Plantation property was made
available by Virgil Scott. During
the construction of their house
Dorothy worked daily to help
build the house board by board.
Until well into her later years
Dorothy was a master crafts-
man of Appalachian baskets,
was a lover of gardening, and for
many years was active in the
Amelia Island Art Association
and the annual Shrimp Festival.
Dorothy was preceded in
death by her brother Warren
Augustus Brewster, and sisters
Adine Brewster, Neela Brewster
Fanus, and Elizabeth Brewster
Naber. Dorothy is survived by
her loving husband Marshall,
daughter Nancy, son William,
grand-daughters Rebecca
Amanda Barton, and Christina
.Elizabeth Tomas, grandson
Bodie Barton, great grand-
daughters Zoi Amaya Tomas
and Vitheavy Barton, and great
grandson Sovann Nou Barton,
and one, as yet to be born great
grandson.
Friends and family are invit-
ed to a memorial celebration of
the life of Dorothy Brewster
Brainard to be held at her home
in Fernandina Beach, FL at 2
p.m. on Saturday, August 25th.

Administrative Rule 53

According to the Nassau County School District
Administrative Ruie 5.33, principals may make "moderate
use of physical contact" to maintain discipline or enforce
school rules.
The child is to be informed of the reason for the punish-
ment, and be given the opportunity to present their side of
the matter and present a witness to the incident.
When corporal punishment is used, it must be done in
the presence of another adult employee of the school and it
cannot be "degrading or unduly severe."
Typically, administrators also are sensitive to gender
issues and a man will not paddle a girl, for example, said
Sharyl Wood, executive director of administrative services
for the district.
In 2009, former Gov. Charlie Crist signed legislation
requiring districts that still use corporal punishment to
review the policy at a school board meeting every three
years. Nassau's policy is up for review again n2013 said
Wood.

Crawford Diamond first county'Industrial Park'


GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader

In a move heralded by officials and develop-
ers alike, Nassau County Commissioners
approved a zoning switch last week making the
Crawford Diamond the county's first true indus-
trial park.
Commissioners voted unanimously in favor of
changing the 1,800-acre property from Open
Rural to Industrial Park zoning, which combines
elements of the previously existing Heavy
Industrial and Industrial Warehouse districts.
The zoning switch gives potential users of
the Crawford Diamond, and any other properties
to receive the designation, the flexibility to
accommodate a wide range of industrial pur-.
poses. Properties must be large-scale and lie


near major transit conduits, such as highways,
ports and rail access, in order to be eligible for
IP zoning.
Interim Growth Management Director Peter
King told commissioners that the zoning change,
which had the support of staff and the Planning
& Zoning Board, would give Rayonier's real
estate arm TerraPointe the tools it needed to
attract business to Nassau.
Mike Mullin, a former county attorney now
representing Rayonier, said of the zoning switch,
"It makes us competitive with surrounding coun-
ties and states."
The Crawford Diamond has already attracted
at least one recent site visit, TerraPointe project
manager Dan Camp told the board. "What has
attracted them here is the dual rail" access,
Camp said of the two class 1 railroads run by CSX


and Norfolk Southern that intersect at the site.
The intersection of those two lines, Camp
said, gives a potential user the ability to put its rail
needs out to bid, a relative rarity in the manu-
facturing sector and a "big deal for a heavy rail
user."
Mike Bell, a spokesman for Rayonier, previ-
ously said the dual rail access is an asset shared
by one other site in Florida and just five others
in the nation.
With the Florida Department of
Transportation working to widen a 17-mile seg-
ment of nearby US 301 to four lanes, almost all
of the pieces are in place for the site to service
a major manufacturer. Water and sewer service
are the remaining hurdles the site needs to over-
come to attract business and jobs, Bell has said.
JEA, which has a franchise agreement with


the county to provide water and sewer service,
has told officials in past discussions-that it does
not make financial sense for it to pay for a new
plant or lines in that area at this time. JEA rep-
resentatives have said they would be willing to
manage a plant if Rayonier, the county or a poten-
tial user built it, Bell said previously.
Officials are exploring an array of options,
including a possible extension of existing lines
from Callahan or Hilliard, but any decision would
require JEA approval, said Steve Rieck, executive
director of the county's Economic Develppment
Board.
The Crawford Diamond has been billed as an
economic hub because it straddles two major
railroads and sits near four deepwater ports, two
interstate highways and an international airport.

Positive change for the county


T here were no hang-
ing chads, no
recounts, no contro-
versies.
It was simply the political
process working the way it
should. And Nassau County
will be a better place to live,
work and visit for it.
An impressive group of fis-
cally conservative candidates
made a clean sweep in various
races last week involving
Nassau County. Aaron Bean
trumped Mike Weinstein in a
state Senate race, Janet
Adkins handily survived in
her reelection bid for state
representative, Bill Leeper
mightily emerged from a full
ballot of opponents to become
the new county sheriff, Mike
Hickox ousted Tammy Stiles
in the property appraiser's
race and Pat Edwards will
take Stacey Johnson's seat on
the county commission.
That amounts to a lot of
positive change for the county
and its residents. Though
there were other races, these
will have the most impact.
Bean served eight years as
a state representative for our
area before having to step
down due to term limits.

STEVE'S
MARKET
PLACE

Steve Nicklas


While in
office, he
earned the
support and
respect of
former Gov.
Jeb Bush,
who openly
campaigned
for Bean on
television
and in public
appear-
ances.
Bean's
opponent
staged the


most negative and costly cam-
paign in recent memory.
Weinstein stuffed area mail-
boxes with glossy mailers
denouncing Bean's previous
service as state representa-
tive, much of which was ques-
tionable (he quoted the
obscure Jacksonville Observer
for some of his claims).
Weinstein is currently a state
representative, but sought the
higher profile Senate seat.
Bean still must prevail in a
November contest, as must
Adkins, but the primary races
provided substantial chal-
lenges for both of them.
Adkins ran as the incumbent,


and certainly has built a stel-
lar record as a state represen-
tative.
Her performance in office
has been noticed. Adkins also
received the support of Bush,
an endorsement that
inevitably helped as she faced
a powerful political newcomer
in Cord Byrd.
Leeper is hardly a political
newcomer. He served excep-
tionally for several terms as a
Fernandina Beach city com-
missioner and by most
beliefs, will make an outstand-
ing sheriff. Leeper has
worked for many years
with the Florida Highway
Patrol, and will bring profes-
sionalism, austerity and
accountability to the local
office.
The race that could have
the most direct impact on
local residents-was for
property appraiser. Stiles has
been widely criticized and
challenged for failing to
reduce property values to
be in line with the local mar-
ket during the real estate
downturn.
Hickox has pledged to
readjust the values according-
ly, both for residential and


commercial properties. His
efforts could provide some
relief to homeowners and
businesses in terms of a hefty
tax burden here.
Edwards will be a wel-
comed addition to the county
commission. He will provide
another fiscally conservative
voice to complement the
efforts of fellow commission-
er Steve Kelley. While the
county commission has
worked earnestly toward cut-
ting expenses, reducing posi-
tions and holding the line on
the tax rate, Kelley's motions
have sometimes died for a
lack of a second vote.
Edwards can provide this.
Nassau County is already a
wonderful place. With politi-
cal candidates like these
working for us, it will become
even better. The political
process can be a powerful
and a positive force especial-
ly when it works like this.

he was readying himself for a

appreciation for the staff's

good teacher to spot other
good ones and those who
have been taught by the gen-
erous Ms. Elwell report that
she is one of the best. And, it
appears, one of the most
appreciative. And speaking of
T Ray's, I met former major

these kids and others like

Yulee, Florida August 16, 2012 Nassau County Board of County Commissioners invites the
public to attend a presentation regarding a new proposed roadway that is expected to go from
Radio Avenue and Art Wilson Lane eastward to Miner Road in Yulee. The public meeting will
be held on Wednesday, August 22nd from 6-8 pm at the Yulee Middle School.

The proposed roadway is expected to be a 2-lane roadway that will not only improve the flow
of traffic surrounding both the Yulee High and Middle Schools, but also provide a continuous
sidewalk from the existing Radio Avenue to Miner Road.

Nassau County is holding this Public Meeting for all surrounding neighbors and any interested
community members to provide information on the roadway plans and answer any questions
from the citizens of Nassau County.

Completion of the road design and plans for the construction will not be final until comments
from the public have been received and the Board of County Commissioners has approved the
plans.

Understanding your TRIM notice


SABRINA ROBERTSON
Nassau County Managers Office

It's that time of year again. You know, the
time when you open your mailbox to find the
dreaded Truth in Millage Notice from the
county, which gives you an idea of what to
expect on ybur next tax bill. Undoubtedly you
will look at this notice and have questions. We
hope that by explaining the different variables
involved, we can give you a better understand-
ing.
Most people don't realize that a majority of
the charges on the tax bill are not controlled
by the Board of County Commissioners. For
example, the state allows for the Nassau
County School Board, St. Johns River Water
Management-District, the Florida Inland
Navigation District, municipalities and Amelia
Island Mosquito Control (as applicable) to levy
taxes in Nassau County. Each is a separate tax-
ing authority that is required to provide public
notice and public hearings prior to setting the
next year's millage rate and budget.
Column three of your TRIM notice repre-
sents your taxes based on the tentative millage
rates established by each taxing authority.
Once the public hearings are held, the
approved millage rates are submitted to the
Nassau County Tax Collector for calculating
the tax bills. Should you have questions or con-


The county has a document titled
'Your Property (Ad Valorem) Tax
Dollars at Work'online.


corns pertaining to any of the above refer-
enced charges, please review your bill to deter-
mine the appropriate jurisdiction to contact.
The taxes levied by the Board of County
Commissioners are identified on your TRIM
notice as "Nassau County" and "NA. Co.
Municpl Serv. Fund" (if applicable). The Board
of County Commissioners levy taxes on prop-
erty owners for the purpose of providing gov-
ernment services to all Nassau County citi-
zens. Examples of these services include
public safety, health and welfare, libraries,
recreation and transportation. The board is
also required to allocate tax revenues to fund
the operations of the other constitutional
offices (Sheriff, Supervisor of Elections, Tax
Collector, Property Appraiser and Clerk of
Courts). Besides supporting the day-to-day
operations, the board also uses your tax dol-
lars to fund needed capital outlay, such as road
projects.
The Board of County Commissioners has a


document titled "Your Property (Ad Valorem)
Tax Dollars at Work." This interactive docu-
ment can be found on the county's website and
was created to help you understand how tax
dollars are spent. The interactive form allows
you to plug in your property's taxable value to
see how money collected by the Board of
County Commissioners is distributed. Your
taxable value is listed on the bottom right of
your TRIM notice. Be sure to use the "Taxable
Value" for 2012.
To locate this document on the county's
website, please visit www.nassaucountyfl.com
and click on the link titled "Your Tax l)ollars at
Work." If you have any questions regarding
this document or regarding taxes collected by
the Board of County Commissioners, please
call the Office of Management & Budget at
491-7370.
Lastly, we encourage you to attend public
hearings regarding proposed taxes for all the
taxing authorities. The dates and times for
each hearing are listed on the far right column
of your TRIM notice. The Board of County
Commissioners' first budget hearing will be
held on Sept. 13 at 6 p.m. in the Commission
Chambers located at 96135 Nassau Place,
Yulee (James S. Page Governmental
Complex). We look forward to seeing you
there and answering any questions you may
have.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Nassau Tomorrow
We would like to address some of
Mr. (Ron) Sapp's concerns expressed
in "Time for a 28 percent solution"
published Aug. 15.
City budget discussions have been
a "hot button" topic lately. Currently,
the city's primary source of revenue is
residential property taxes. City com-
missioners are understandably trying
to find creative ways to increase rev-
enue since residential development
typically consumes more in govern-
mental services than it returns in taxes
to the city. If our communities are to
succeed, they must grow jobs and
broaden and diversify the tax base.
The Nassau County Economic
Development Board (NCEDB) by any
measure is woefully under-resourced
but is the only vehicle positioned to-
help both the county and its munici-
palities to grow smarter in the future
than in the past and become less
dependent upon residential taxpayers
to fund government services.
Successful communities step up in a
partnership and that is allwe're trying
to do with Nassau Tomorrow- be part
of the solution and work collectively
We have identified "job opportuni-
ty areas", across Nassau,County, not
just in BrycevillUorYulee as Mr. Sapp
suggests. A key job opportunity area
Sis the city of Fernandina Beach where
we can leverage existing infrastruc-
ture and resources at the airport, along
the Eighth Street corridor, the Port
of Fernandina and the central busi-
ness district to create new jobs and
attract new capital investment. We
want to work cooperatively with the
local government, the business com-
munity and the citizens of Fernandina
Beach to develop and execute sound
strategies that will deliver measura-
ble value to,the city over the next five
years. We invite Mr. Sapp to take a
seat at the table.
Steve Rieck
Executive Director
NCEDB

Main Beach Dumpster
I am writing to thank the city of
Fernandina Beach for building the
ugly concrete block wall to hold the
Dumpster in the parking lot at Main
Beach. First, as one drives up to the
beach you can no longer see the water
because there is a concrete block wall
that is painted institution beige in your
line of sight. This monster uses two or
possibly three parking spaces in the
parking lot. But here is the kicker: As'
one pulls around to park the actual
dumpster is facing the beach with
some kind of gate in front of it. Today
when I met my friends for our once a
week meeting on the beach the
Dumpster was beginning to stink from
whatever was inside of it. This was in
the morning so imagine what it will
smell like by afternoon.
The thank you is because I think
this will solve the parking issue at
Main Beach. No one will want to park
anywhere near there so,the city would
not make any money in the area for
beach parking. I am sure that this will
certainly discourage people that want
to have a picnic in the park. Thank
you, city of Fernandina Beach, for solv-
ing the parking issue and making an
unpleasant situation for tourists and
locals at what used to be our lovely
Main Beach.
On another front, on the day after


the election I noted that there was a
city truck on Atlantic Avenue picking
up election signs and this made me
happy but why the city? And then one
of my Main Beach friends also told
me that she saw a Nassau County
truck picking up election signs. The
question is that if the people running
for office are able to get those signs up
so fast, why can't they get out and pick
up their own signs? I am sure that the
city and county workers have more
important things to do than pick up the
signs that have been so irreverently
scattered around the city and the coun-
ty.
Now these people running for
office that have insulted my intelli-
gence by thinking that I would vote for
the one with the most signs or the
biggest sign or the one that can dis-
tract my driving the most by having
their supporters hang out in the street
with their signs have found a way to
use my tax money by having city and
county workers pick up their messes.
And by the way, there are still signs all
over three days after the election I
hope the people that got elected will be
better at cleaning up our government
than they are with handling their signs.

Re: The News-LeaderAug 17 issue.

believe she did a good job in office
and I believe (her opponent) Mike

Politics
Yahoo, the primary.election is over.
To all the candidates: I am sick of your
robocalls. One was from Utah. Why?
This was a Florida primary.
The amount of fliers that come in
the mail was ridiculous. Two and three
the same day for the same person.
With so many people out of work, and
the homeless, that money could be
spent on something worthwhile. It
sickens me the amount spent on this
election.
Another gripe is the flag waving
and signs on Atlantic Avenue by the
recreation center (polling place). So
many people standing on either side of
the driveway, some even on the drive-
way. What a distraction for those of
us coming in to vote. Also making it dif-
ficult to see traffic when driving out.
onto Atlantic.
It sickens me how the election
process has been going on the past
few years. Do you wonder why so
many people don't vote? Especially
the young people are turned off.
Now we have two and a half
months of national politics. I hate to
see what we'll have to put up with.
Is there no common sense any-
more?

Paradise and parking
We have seen numerous News-
Leader articles and letters, to. the
editor regarding Fernandina's con-
sideration of parking meters at
the beaches and in town. This is a
valid option for generating reven-
ues for a financially strapped munici-
pality.
We recently vacationed at Tybee
Island, Ga., 15 miles east of Savannah.
It is a beautiful getaway, mostly quiet,
rather simple, not ritzy, many old oaks,
half the size of Amelia, with pristine
beaches and marshes, wonderful fish-
ing, kayaking and biking. So in away
it is a paradise, but with a huge park-
ing issue.
All over the island near the beach,
outside the restaurants, near any
attraction you encounter parking
kiosks. Want to go to the beach it's
a $3 parking fee,.or a ticket. Want to
stroll by the water and watch a
sunset $3. Better hope the restau-
rant you go to has private parking,
ditto the shops.
It's not just the money; it's the
inconvenience of going to the kiosk,
trying to get your credit card to work,
planning how long you want to stay
and making sure your receipt is visible
in the window. And to ensure you use
a kiosk, there are unattractive "No
Parking" signs every 100 feet on near-
by residential streets.
Frankly, this continuing parking
aggravation changes the whole char-
acter of the island for visitors, turns it
from a welcoming into an irritating
atmosphere.
For residents it may just be a cost
issue, because for $150 you can get
annual passes and park in the kiosk
zones. But visitors spend their first
few days trying to figure out the park-
ing challenges. It definitely detracts
from Tybee's charm.
We need to find ways to generate
revenues, but the whole time we were
on Tybee, we were thinking how
happy we are not to have paid parking
-in Fernandina..Let's keep our para-
dise a paradise.
Ed and Mariann Weihenmayer

Weapons
After reading several articles and
letters about weapons, I would like to
inform the writers of the correct
nomenclature for the weapons they
consider themselves experts.
After 30 years in the Army the only
"clip" fed weapon I used was the M-l
Garand Rifle, ask all those that expe-
rienced M-1 Thumb, all others are
magazine fed. If the writers want to


be taken seriously they should get
their information correct. By the way,
the Aurora coward could have
exchanged magazines in seconds if
he had two banana magazines taped
together.

More kudos
The city doesn't get enough cred-
it for the preventive work and the envi-
ronmental work that is done behind
the scenes in order to keep the city
running smoothly. I noticed today
while working in my garage one of
the employees for the utilities depart-
ment checking the water meters as
they often do. I lived in Pinellas County
for 17 years and always noticed their
vehicles parked in my neighborhood
running idle while they went through
the neighborhood checking our water
meters. Today, I noticed a city employ-
ee on a Segway or a similar type of
standup electric people mover. This
is commendable, and Ijustwanted to
express my appreciation to the city
for utilizing an environmentally friend-
ly alternative.
I waved "hello" to the gentleman
and said, "Very cool." He had a warm
smile and greeting for me without the
background noise of a vehicle run-
ning idle. Quite frankly, it seemed like
an easy way to accomplish his task
from house to house. Kudos to you,
city of Fernandina Beach! Keep on
being green. A little at a time goes a
long way to save our city and our plan-
et.

Outraged
Yesterday I brought my visiting
grandchildren into a local beach store
thinking this would be a good place for
them to choose souvenirs before head-
ing back to Chicago. We started our
search in the children's section. It was


RICK MCKEE/THE AUGUSTA (GA.) CHRONICLE

when we got to the register to pay for
our purchases that I noticed a truly
disgusting, racist T-shirt hanging in
the store. My husband asked to see
the manager but was told he wasn't in
the store so he told the clerk what we
thought of the shirt and asked her to
pass along the information to man-
agement.
We have lived in Fernandina Beach
for seven years. It greatly embarrass-
es my husband and me to think a busi-
ness would be so insensitive as to
offend anyone.
Tourism is our number-one busi-
ness and if it offends us it would offend
many. That isn't what Amelia Island
is all about, is it? I will never again go
into that store. There are many great
places on the island to find souvenirs.
Who needs that store?

Council onAging
services at risk
I am writing this letter to express
my pleasure and support of the Nassau
Adult Day Healthcare program
through the Council On Aging. My
mother has been enrolled for almost 2
years.
The adult daycare program has
been a wonderful way for my mother
to get out daily and interact with oth-
ers, which provides her the stimulation
she needs to have a satisfying life in
her current stage ofAlzheimer's. The
program, through the many varieties
of activities to include arts and crafts,
gdmes, trips, gardening, interacting
with community school children, etc.,
has kept her interested in attending
each day. I believe the staff (Debra
and Kelly) have been key in caring
for and motivating my mother. I have
been completely satisfied with the pro-
gram and service we receive.
In addition, the program has
allowed me to continue to work at least
part-time since I am her primary care-
giver.
This program is very vital, espe-
cially since it is the only program of its
kind in the county. As more and
more Baby Boomers are diagnosed,
this program will be in even more
demand. I would like to see the pro-
gram promoted more and brought to
the attention of other caregivers in the
area.
Overall, I feel very secure leaving
my mother each day because I know
she has been entrusted to a caring,
competent staff of people who are truly
concerned for her well being.

The closest people I know
to "Florida Crackers" are
actually a couple of university
folks transplanted to
Gainesville, and he's from
Australia no less, not Florida
at all. But let me tell you
about my recent visit to their
place and see what you think.
Sylvia Scudder and Perran
Ross have been friends of
mine since my own PhD days
at the University of Florida a
couple of decades ago. We've
lost touch a bit since then, bui
when I saw them a few
months ago they told me
about the Catahoula hounds
they raise and train on their
acres of property adjacent to
Payne's Prairie State Park.
So one Saturday morning
in Gainesville, I visited them
at long last, with a mutual
friend Karen Brown and her
mom, a longtime boxer
breeder who was curious
about the dogs too. As expect-
ed, we were met at the gate of
their property by a pack of
howling hounds, but once we
were invited in by Sylvia and
Perran, the dogs quickly
accepted us into their pack
too, a very friendly, enthusias-
tic-bunch for sure.
First stop was their house,
a historic old Cracker-style
home that was built in
Gainesville in the 1880s then
moved by previous owners
onto the property south of
town where it was neglected
for decades. Sylvia and
Perran invested lots of sweat
equity and money too in


a sigwn- conw of

restoring this house to its for-
mer splendor. It's thickly plas-
tered walls keep out the heat,
its charming hand carved
woodwork and hardwood
floors cool the feet and the
wraparound porch expands
the living space. And believe
me, with a pack of large active
dogs, the space is needed!
But it wasn't the house I
was there to see, it was the
dogs. Sylvia and Perran have
raised and trained their prize
Catahoula dogs, and the adult
dogs are certified champions
from clog shows where their
physical conformation is
judged. But that's not really
what Sylvia and Perran prize
about their dogs. It's the bay-
'ing trials that their dogs enter
all across the southern
United States that thrills them
the most. Their hounds excel
in the competitions where
they face off wild boars and
bring them to a standstill
(without biting them) and
they are also great at treeing
raccoons, showing the appro-
priate amount of enthusiasm,
attention and baying to win
prizes for this too (again with-
out harm to the raccoon,
which is in a cage and hoisted
up into a tree during the,tri-.,..,
als).
To train their dogs, Sylvia
and Perran keep (or should I
say, kept) a pair of hogs in a
pen at a distance from their
house, on the edge of the
wilderness of Payne's Prairie
and the dogs are trained to
run around this pen, and
using the force of their bay-
ing, eye contact and maneu-
vers to control the-pigs. Sweet
Pea, the domestic pig, actual-


ly seemed to
enjoy all this
attention,
tossing hay
in the air
when the
dogs did
their act out-
'_'_;_ .side the pen.
But that was
WILD then. Now
WAYS Sweet Pea is
.- .. sausage.
Just a week
Pat before I got
Foster-Turley there a bear
got into the
pen and killed her, and her
companion young wild pig,
although uninjured, died a
few days later from the stress
of it all.
Although I couldn't see the
"pig baying" training, I did
see the raccoon treeing train-
ing. Sylvia hoisted a cage with
the "raccoon" a bit of rac-
coon fur wrapped around a
deerskin on a rope, and
pulled it up into a tree. Then
it was time. "Get the coon,"
Perran yelled as he released
the dogs. And they did their
best, baying and jumping up
the tree trunk, all attention,
some instinct, some training
?nd,a great showfor sure.:.. ..
On the way back to their
house we passed their per-
simmon grove, outfitted with
a variety of scarecrows, one
humanoid statue, 6ne fake
hanging vulture, one fake
hawk on a pole to protect-
their future harvest from pos-
sums, coons and birds. With
the help of a "game cam" they
have filmed these predations
and also gotten footage of
coyotes, wild turkeys and

other wildlife on their proper-

As we walked Sylvia told
Karen about the yellow rat
snake that has been visiting
their hummingbird feeder.
And Karen was saying she
wished she had a rat snake in
her garage to keep the rats
from eating the wiring of her
car. And,Sylvia said, "Hey I've
got one in a pillowcase. Do
you want it?" So after a
refreshing drink of orange
crush, a soft drink they make
from wild citrus, we left the

So what do you think? Are
these Florida Crackers.or
what? All I can say is I'm glad
they're my friends, and I'm
eager to go back there again

for me.

Deadline for FEMA


storm aid nears


GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader
With the deadline to apply
for state and federal aid less
than two weeks away, FEMA
and the Small Business
Administration are urging res-
idents and business owners
affected by Tropical Storm
.Debby to register before it is
too late.
Residents can register for
aid every day leading up to
and including the Sept. 4 dead-
line, but the agency doesn't
want those affected by the
storm to miss out on oppor-
tunities to seek government
assistance, a spokesperson
said.
Everyone dealing with
storm-related damage to
homes, vehicles, personal
property, businesses or inven-
tory between June 23, when
Debby hit, and July 26 should
apply, FEMA said in a press
release Thursday.
"What we don't want peo-
ple to do is let that deadline
pass and not know about it,"
FEMA spokesman Ted Stuck-
ey said. "We'd encourage folks
to tell their friends, families
and coworkers to make sure
they spread the word."
The agency has approved
more than $20 million in dis-
aster assistance grants state-
wide, with nearly $600,000-
plus of that going to Nassau
County residents. Nearly 100
residents have sought federal
aid through FEMA, and
almost 14,800 have done so
throughout Florida.


'There's still plenty of time
to get the process going, but
as you know two weeks really
isn't that long," said Stuckey.
"We just encourage people to
call sooner than later. Of
course, if you call that very
last day, you're still eligible for
assistance. You're not cheat-
ing yourself by- waiting, but
it's better to get it going."
Stuckey said those affected
by storm damage should not
rule themselves out for any.
Instead, he said, they should
call their FEMA representa-
tives and find out exactly what
sort of help they may be eli-
gible to receive.
Even those with insurance
are still eligible, Stuckey said,
because there are costs that
their insurers may not be will-
ing to cover.
"For instance, alternative
living expenses, like if you're
unable to live in your home
during repairs.... That's some-
thing where each individual
policy differs," he added.
"That's a good example of
something where people with
insurance would qualify for
FEMA assistance."
Plus, he said, the agency
serves as a gateway for other
organizations.to provide aid.
States and charitable organi-
zations, Stuckey said, often
use FEMA registers to evalu-
ate whom they can help.
To register by phone, call
1-800-621-3362 (FEMA). Lines
are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Register online at www.disas-
terassistance.gov. The dead-
line to register is Sept. 4.


Blaze consumes home

News-Leader
A lightning strike may have
caused a blaze that consumed
a Laguna Drive home late
Thursday and took 16 fire-
fighters about one hour to con-
tain, Fernandina Beach Fire
Chief Dan Hanes said in a
press release.
The fire at 860 Laguna-
Drive, reported at 8:54 p.m.,.
burned thri'ugh the entire
home and resulted in more
than $250,000 worth of prop-
erty damage, Hanes wrote. No
injuries to residents or emer-


agency responders were
reported, the fire chief said.
Hanes said though the fire
is believed to be the result of
a lightning bolt from a severe
thunderstorm that was over-
head at the time, the official.
cause is pending an investi-
gation by the city fire marshal.
Rescuers aboard engine
102, the first to respond, said
flames had already shot
through the. roof by the time
they'arrived. In'a joint effort
by Fernandina Beach and
Nassau County Fire Rescue,
16 firefighters spent an hour
quelling the flames.

Dave Smith seeks legislative seat


Dave Smith, a Neptune Beach
Democrat, is seeking election to the Florida
House of Representatives, District 11.
He opposes incumbent State Rep. Janet
Adkins in the Nov. 6 election.
Smith, whose dIverse career includes 12
years of teaching in public schools, has
also worked in the fields of art, music,
radio and engineering. He earned his BA
degree in Spanish at Metropolitan State
University in Denver.
While originally from New York State,
Dave has lived in Duval County for 17 years
and claims roots in Florida. "My grand-
parents came to live near downtown
Jacksonville in 1947, and my family visited
Florida every year or two," he said in a
press release.
Early memories include fishing off
Jacksonville bridges, riding the Mayport
Ferry and hunting for shells at Sanibel
Island, Smith said.
Smith is past president of Concerned
Taxpayers of Duval County, a waste-cut-
ting and corruption watchdog organiza-
tion. He is also a past vice president of the
Beaches Democratic Club. He has worked
in various county- and district-wide politi-


r- cal campaigns. He has
S'" been a diligent student
/i of ands speaker to the
Jacksonville City
SCouncil, Smith said.
"I ami a DeImocrat
because I believe in the
fundamental equality of
all people," he said. "Our
Smith life paths bring us to dif-
fer'ent outcomes, of
course. The founders of
the United States of America, while they
respected religion, were descended from
people fleeing religious, authoritarian gov-
ernments. Why would we today accept
this kind of old-world government in
Florida?
"I believe that good government should
deliver the traditional services to the gen-
eral public while maintaining a balanced
budget. Right now Tallahassee is a play-
ground for greedy politicians and their
buddies. Corporate welfare increases while
public services decline. This is the imbal-
ance I will work to correct.
"When you vote for a Tallahassee
incumbent based on their experience, you


are creating a career politician that you
may never be able to remove. I am not
looking for job security, but a fresh
approach that begins with the first sen-
tence of article one of the Florida
Constitution: 'All political power is inherent
in the people.'
"Mayport is a victim of bad govern-
ment. There is now so much political pos-
turing for the Mayport ferry that I wonder
why there is now no funding resolution.
Even if the state funding cut is restored
(and I will make this top priority), other
unresolved problems remain in Mayport,
problems which government has created."
Smith said he intends to make govern-
ment work better for average citizens. He
favors no new taxes, while supporting tech-
nology that provides clean energy, green
construction and recycling of manufac-
tured products. "There is good regulation
.and probably other regulation we can elim-
inate. When I hear anti-regulation state-
ments, 1 want to know which regulations we
are talking about."
Just as important, Smith said he-would
work to protect Florida's natural beauty
and its vital water supply.

POLICE REPORT


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

anonymous tips.

Aggravated assault
A Yulee man was arrested
at his neighbor's home early
Sunday after a verbal dispute
turned physical and he threat-
ened his neighbor with an alu-
minum bat, according to a
police report.
Avery Lenell Parrish was
standing outside his neighbor's
Pinewood Drive home with a
silver-colored baseball bat in
hand when police arrived about
2:30 a.m., the report stated.
Parrish, 41, was irate and intox-


icated, police said.
His neighbor told deputies
that Parrish had been beating
on the outside of his home with
the bat and had already shat-
tered one window near the front
door, the report said. Parrish
continued to threaten his neigh-
bor after deputies arrived and
he was placed in the cruiser,
police said.
Police had been called to the
residence earlier to deal with
the pair and both had been
warned against trespassing on
each other's properties, the
report stated. Parrish, who had
been drinking during the first
police visit, had continued drink-
ing since, police said.
Parrish, of 86185 Pinewood
Drive, is charged with aggra-
vated assault with a deadly
weapon, armed trespassing,
criminal mischief and disorderly
intoxication. He remains in
Nassau CountyJail on a $14,000
bond.
Aggravated battery
A Fernandina Beach woman
was arrested early Saturday
after she struck another woman
with a glass candleholder dur-
ing an argument, according to a
police report.
Witnesses told police that


Lydia Ann Brady and another
woman were arguing at Brady's
96070 Lonnies Lane home
about 2:45 a.m. when she
grabbed the candleholder and
hit the other woman over the
head with it, causing a gash,
police said. The other woman,
whom Brady said was respon-
sible for a cut to her own left
eyebrow, almost passed out
from blood loss, police said.
The statements by witnesses
and the other woman were con-
sistent, the report stated.
Brady, 41, was evaluated at
Baptist Nassau before deputies
took her to Nassau County Jail,
where she remains on a $15,000
bond for the charge of aggra-
vated battery.

Luring a child
SA convicted child molester
was arrested late Friday after
he tried to lure a young girl into
his car while she shopped with
her mother at a Callahan con-
venience store, according to a
police report.
The victim's mother told
deputies that when she and her
daughter were getting out of
their car at the King Food Store
on US 1 in Callahan between 9
and 10 p.m., Phillip Warren
Leach tried enticing her daugh-


ter into his car with candy,
police said. The juvenile victim
ran to her in fear of the man,
her mother told police.
Deputies had been called
previously to the woman's res-
idence at the Cypress Court
Motel in response to allegations
that Leach, 46, had touched her
daughter inappropriately, and
that is why the girl was afraid of
him, the report stated.
Leach told deputies he went
to the King Food Store after
work and he did see the girl
and her mother there, police
said. He admitted to speaking
with the girl, but denied trying
to get her into his car, police
said.
A check of Leach's criminal
history revealed he had been
convicted previously of molesta-
tion and other sexual charges,
the report stated. Leach, who
resides in Room 1 at the
Cypress Court Motel, 449675
US 301, Callahan, has been
charged with luring or enticing
a child. He remains in custody
at Nassau County Jail without
bond.

later driving the man's car and
buying drinks and cigarettes

Tyson inside, police said. After
they got permission from the
owner to search the vehicle,
they discovered several pills of
clonazepam, a narcotic muscle
relaxant, and methadone, a nar-
cotic pain reliever, inside
Poole's purse, police said.
Poole told deputies where
the man's car was and con-
firmed that she and Tyson had
stolen his laptop, but could not
confirm that they stole his gun,
police said.
Poole and Tyson were each
charged with grand theft of a
motor vehicle and grand theft.
Poole was also charged with
possession of controlled sub-
stances without a prescription
and fraudulent use of a credit
card.

Swine flu found


in pigs at fairs


University of Florida

GAINESVILLE Despite
their healthy appearance, sev-
eral pigs on show at a 2009 U.S.
state fail- competition were
infected with swine flu, accord-
ing to a new study by University
of Florida infectious disease
experts.
Up to 20 percent of show
pigs at the 2009 Minnesota state
fair were infected, and an infect-
ed animal was also found at the
2009 South Dakota fair, the
researchers report in the
September issue of the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention's Emerging
Infectious Diseases journal.
The findings come in the
wake of recent CDC warnings
to fairgoers and reports of new
swine flu strains, called H3N2
variants, in people who had
direct or indirect contact with
pigs at agricultural fairs.
"The new H3N2 variant
viruses that are circulating now
in pigs and apparently affecting
people at pig shows are off-
springs of the 2009 pandemic
virus that spread throughout
the world," said lead investiga-
tor Dr. Gregory Gray, chairman
of the UF College of Public
Health and Health Professions
department of environmental
and global health, and a mem-
ber of UF's Emerging
Pathogens Institute. "It mixed
with the viruses that were
already present in pigs and out
has come a new progeny virus."
Between July 12 and Aug.
10, health authorities have con-
firmed 153 cases of'H3N2 vari-
ant infections in four states. And
with county and state fair sea:
son in full swing, the number of
infections is expected to rise.
For the summer 2009 study,
Gray, then the director of the
University of Iowa's Center for
Emerging Infectious Diseases,
and his team evaluated pigs and
their handlers at the Minnesota
and South Dakota state fairs.
The researchers collected com-
pleted questionnaires from han-
dlers, and swab samples from
pigs' nostrils. All the pigs had
been deemed healthy by a vet-
erinarian before being permit-
ted to enter the show.
Of 57 pigs examined at the
Minnesota fair, 11 tested posi-
tive for swine flu, and of 45 pigs


examined at the South. Dakota
fair, one tested positive. Most
of the flu-positive pigs had nasal
samples collected within 24
hours of arrival at the fair, so
the results suggest the animals
were infected before they got
there.
The presence of influenza A
in healtly-looking pigs is con-
sistent with a 2011 Canadian
study that demonstrated that
as many as 90 percent of infect-
ed pigs may not show clinical
signs of viral infection.
In addition, six of seven
viruses the researchers isolated
from pigs in the 2009 study
were identical to the pandemic
H1N1 virus that had first been
confirmed in humans just five
months earlier, in April of that
year. In a follow-up telephone
survey, two human study par-
ticipants reported influenza-like
illness.
"Pandemic influenza is a
good example of how certain
strains of influenza can spread
in both human and pig popula-
tions at the same time this is
obviously of serious concern,"
said Juergen A. Richt, the
Regents Distinguished
Professor at the Kansas State
University College of Veterinary
Medicine, who was not involved
in the study. "The recent sharp
increase in cases of influenza
associated with the novel H3N2
variant at local and state fairs
throughout the Midwest fur-
ther confirms this phenome-
non. It is important that we
increase public awareness that
animals, such as pigs, cattle and
sheep can carry viruses that
might be of concern to the gen-
eral public."
The UF investigators rec-
ommend that swine show visi-
tors follow the CDC's guide-
lines: Wash your hands before
and after exposure to animals,
don't eat or drink in areas where
animals are kept and avoid corr-
tact with animals if you are
experiencing flu-like symptoms
or if the animals appear sick.
People who are pregnant,
younger than 5 or who have
weakened immune systems
should avoid exposure to pigs
and pig barns.
Eating pork from a pig
infected with influenza does nqt
appear to cause infection in
humans, according to the CDC.

After two years of
fundraising, Girl Scout
Brownie Troop 643
raised enough money to
purchase a park bench at
Central Park facing the
main play area. Under the
direction of Leaders
Jennifer Schoening and
Tabitha Mudd, these 14
Brownies have learned
first-hand how to con-
tribute to their communi-
ty and make it a better
place. They began their
journey by walking
through Central Park,
(where the Girl Scout hut
is located and their meet-
ings are held) and "brain-
storming" on ways to
improve the park. Dozens
of ideas were suggested,
and after discussing each
idea and determining the
best ones, a list of five
ideas were presented to
the director of Parks and
Recreation, Nan Voit.
Each girl signed the letter
to the director, who
promptly responded with
the status and feasibility
of each idea. The girls
voted on adding the park
bench and decided to get
busy raising the money
needed, over $600! After
several bake sales at local
events, selling candy and
lots and lots and lots of
Girl Scout cookies, they
finally attained their goal.
It was hard work but they
never gave up and now
their names on the bench
close to the play area will
serve as a reminder to
each of them that they
can change the world.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22.2012
NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH. FLORIDA


TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Capt. Greg Simmons has moored Randy Ringhaver's Ullberg 65 Express at the Fernandina Harbor Marina for the entire month of August. She can run up to 41 knots while tar-
geting king mackerel to blue marlin.


Fishing boats


-not too small,not to big


t's hard too imagine com-
mercial fishing 50 miles
off the coast of Ghana,
South Africa, for big
game fish in a canoe-like boat
that measures some 30 feet in
length.
A crew of six South
African fishermen navigates
its small commercial fishing
boat offshore to blue water
depths with a single diesel
engine aboard a fishing boat
with just a five-foot beam and
gunnels that are just four feet
high. Five fishermen work
hand lines one at the stern
and two on each side of the
boat -while the sixth fisher-
man, navigates the fishing
boat with a hand tiller.
Kayak fishermen launch
their 10- to 15-foot kayaks
through pounding surf while
targeting 100-pound tarpon,
kingfish and dangerous
sharks that can weigh well
over 200 pounds.
Without a doubt, kayak
fishing is one of the fastest
growing styles of saltwater
fishing, particularly on
Florida's First Coast. Capt.
Mike Kogan of Jacksonville
has proved the popularity of
kayak fishing by drawing
more than 400 kayak fisher-
men to his annual
Jacksonville Kayak Fishing
Tournament.
Fishermen must have
some sort of a floating device
to take them to their targeted
fishing waters and, in some
cases, that floating device
may be as small as a paddle
board or small rubber raft.
My first fishing boat was a
fiberglass skiff constructed
much like a Jon boat.
However, when planning my
first fishing trip, I had to bor-
row a 9 hp outboard and rent
a U-Haul trailer to reach my
targeted bass lake. I was a
young, married father; later I
was able to afford a boat trail-
er and outboard motor.
In most cases, fishermen
typically begin their fishing
careers while fishing from
small boats. I have to admit,
after some 60 fishing seasons,
some of my best fishing trips
have been from small boats.
However, if you wish to
target deep-water fisheries
from Northeast Florida's Gulf
Stream to Panama billfish,
you simply have to have a
large sport fishing boat.
Greg Simmons was born
and raised on Amelia Island,
where his father, Ralph
Simmons, began teaching
him the art of fishing at a
very early age.


At the
Sage of 19,
Greg
Simmons
secured his
captain's
license and
began char-
ter fishing
from the
ROUTayRS Fernandina
----*-. Harbor
.eriyLacoss Marina. His
charter
catches were impressive,
including a catch of several
klingfish over the 40-pound
mark, all in one morning of
fishing.!
Randy Ringhaver, who
heads up "Ring Power," rec-
ognized Simmons' desire to
fish and excellent fishing
skills and soon hired him to
navigate his company's pride
and joy, the "Ring Leader"
sport fishing boat.
For several years now,
Simmons has captained the
,"Ring Leader" to impressive
catches, including a 722-
pound blue marlin that Randy
Ringhaver caught and
released.
Simmons also took first-
place aggregate during the
2009 Greater Jacksonville
Kingfish Tournament with a
pair of king mackerel that
weighed 66.55 pounds.
Through the years,
Simmons has captained a
variety of sport fishing boats
for Randy Ringhaver; howev-
er, their current sport fishing
boat may be the largest and
the best.
The "Ring Leader" was
custom built by Lyman
Morse Boat Building in
Maine and measures 65 feet
with a huge 19-foot beam. She
is also a Ullberg 65 Express
fishing boat and may well be
the largest of its kind.
Powered by twin C32 Acert
Caterpillar diesel engines, she
can run to the fishing
grounds at 41 knots.
Express fishing boats have
an open cockpit, where fisher-
men can rest comfortably
until that next big bite hap-
pens. Express also means
there are no glass doors to
open to reach the back deck
when the fishing action heats
up. Instead plastic or vinyl
curtains can be used to close
the deck; or leave it open, .
affording for a complete open
cockpit.
Simmons has enjoyed fish-
ing from both small and large
fishing boats, whilehis fish-
ing knowledge is bigger than
the boats he captains.

metropolitan areas. We managed to
travel through 12 different states:
Florida, Georgia, South and North
Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia,
Maryland, Pennsylvania,
Connecticut, Massachusetts, New
Hampshire and, finally, Maine.
Our long road trip was rewarded.
We settled into our condo on
Gooch's Beach in Kennebunk and
soon made it our home away from
home. We were blessed with the
clearest of days and mild tempera-
tures. We explored the beautiful
quaint towns up and down the
coast with names like Ogunquit,
Goose Rocks, Cape Porpoise and
Biddeford.
The beaches in Maine are not like
our beaches. In fact, they are gray
and gritty and more dirt than sand.
The beach near our condo has a


crescent shape with rocks defining
each end. We watched the ebb and
flow of beach people each day from
our porch overlooking the shoreline.
Dogs are not allowed on the
beach during the day. So before the
beach opens and after it closes is dog
time. Better than television we
watched the rowdy crew of dogs of
all sizes and shapes playing on the
beach. It was like watching a dog
show, but the participants were
unleashed. Their energy was end-
less. Balls and Frisbees were
snatched in the air.
We soon became experts on lob-
ster. Who had the best and at a good
price. Lobster rolls are one of the
best ways to enjoy the succulent,
unique taste of Maine's.famous crus-
tacean. Lumps of precious lobster
are mixed with mayonnaise, chopped


celery and served in a bun that
resembles a hot dog bun. The buns
are browned in butter and are the
perfect accompaniment to the deli-
cious meat.
Maine is, well, Maine. It is what
you expect. Beautiful piney woods,
elegant white church spires in every
town. Houses of clapboard in autum-
nal shades of mustard, cinnamon and
mossy green or brilliant white.
Bright flowers are abundant. The
people are friendly and helpful.
Our break from the Florida heat
was treasured, but there is no place
like home. If only it were a little cool-
er in August.

COMMUI II IPB iR


The Rotary Club of
Amelia Island Sunrise
hosted Captain Kevin
McCarthy of Amelia River
Cruises, right, and marine
biologist Andrea Margiotta,
above, on July 27.
McCarthy spoke about the .
history of his business and
the impact of eco-tourism
on the local economy. One
of his dreams is to some-
day see a marine sciences
center in Fernandina
Beach. Although no formal
plans are yet in place,
McCarthy believes this day
will come. He also dis-
cussed improvements in
the local ecosystem and
the resurgence of local oys-
ter populations. "This
ecosystem could again sup-
port commercial oyster
harvesting," says
McCarthy, "and a marine
sciences center in turn
could help support that
industry."
The company has been offering eco-shrimping tours, led by Margiotta, capturing a
variety of aquatic Wvildlife so children and adults can examine and learn about sea
life. All animals are returned to the water safe and sound. The eco-shrimping tours
are suspended while Margiotta returns to graduate school, but are expected to
resume in the fall.

Hi! My name is Aragorn. I
am a 1 1/2-year-old shepherd
mix. My coat is a beautiful
golden brown with a black
muzzle and black markings
around my eyes. Aragorn
came in as a stray and very
under weight but despite his
adversities he still has a great
personality and loves every-
one. He is also good around
other dogs. He is slowly put-
ting more weight on, is up-to-
date on his boosters and is
heartworm free. Come see
him and spend some time
with him and you will see
what a great companion he
will be. He can be found at
the Nassau County Animal
Services, 86078 License Road,
Yulee, 491-7440, Tuesday ,
through Friday from 11 a.m.
to 4 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. to


A tourist spotted Holiday
alone and frightened near a.
motel at the intersection of I-
95 and AIA a dangerous
place for a cat. Holiday was
most likely dumped there and
it wasn't much of a vacation
for her. Holiday is an adult
female brown tabby cat who
is very loving and friendly.
She gets along with the other
cats at our adoption center
too. This girl deserves a real
home with people who will
love her and not leave her
again. If you want to give
Holiday or any other of the
felines at Cats Angels a forev-
er home, give us a call at 321-

Mini is a very sweet
Chihuahua mix who really
needs a loving home very
soon. She's only about 2 years
old, with a nice soft coat for
petting, a gorgeous face and
soulful, expressive eyes. She's
quiet and very loving, and sits
on your lap to get all the love
she can. Mini loves people but
she's nervous being around
all the barking dogs here at
the shelter, and we think she'll
be a lot happier in a quieter
home environment with a per-
son or family to love her. She's
very neat in her kennel, so if
she's not already housebro-
ken we think she'd be easy to
train. She's alert and intelli-
gent and we think she's going
to make a wonderful pet.
Fletcher is a friendly, affec-
tionate young Domestic Short
Hair mix who's looking for a
forever home with you! He
was found as a stray on
Fletcher Avenue in
Fernandina Beach. We believe
he must have belonged to
someone, because he's very
affectionate and loves to be
held and petted. He gets along
well with the other cats in our

The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club
recently received a legislative update from
longtime Florida Congressman Ander
Crenshaw, a fellow Rotarian and native of
Jacksonville who represents the Fourth
Congressional District in the U.S. House
of Representatives. He said most of the
focus in Washington, D.C., is currently on
the upcoming presidential election and its
impact on many issues of concern for
everyone. He spoke about the economy
and unemployment and said economic
growth has been hindered by businesses'
uncertainty over the cost of health care
initiatives, government regulations and
the fate of long-standing tax deductions.
He outlined legislation he has champi-
oned to bring positive change to the
region, including the National Cemetery
in Jacksonville, a new fleet of Navy vessels
at Mayport to bring more than 3,000
sailors to the base by 2013 and the
deployment of the Navy's next generation
of carriers to Mayport.
