Volunteer


fire units


face more


scrutiny

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Volunteer fire departments serving
Nassau County have a choice ahead of
theri: sign contracts agreeing to
stricter standards and added oversight
or assume supporting roles as reserve
units and water haulers. But none have
said which route they might choose,
Fire Chief Matt Graves said Monday.
Approved by county commission-
ers Sept. 10, the ultimatum is the lat-
est in a series of
moves to consoli-
date volunteer
efforts under the
county banner. It,
means more over-
sight by Graves over
the five previously
independently run
departments,which Graves
receive funding
from the county.
The contract is the fruit of a com-
mittee Graves formed months ago
with the goals of eliminating waste
and bringing volunteers into compli-
ance with state laws. It appears to
address questionable spending, hiring
and record-keeping practices of some
volunteer departments in the past
Changes introduced would be
aimed at embracing the volunteer
departments and helping them become
more useful to the taxpayers,
Commission Chair Danny Leeper said.
"We want to make sure that we're
fully compliant with the law and we're
maximizing the use of our tax dollars
and getting the bang for our buck,"
Graves said in a phone interview
Thursday.
Volunteer departments whose
chiefs choose not to sign the contracts,
which impose stricter controls over
operations, would not be eligible to
receive county funding.
Instead, those departments could
become reserve units used to vet
trainees or they could adopt supporting
roles, primarily tasked with hauling
water to fires.
WThis is intended to give them some
options," Graves told commissioners
Sept. 10. "It's very difficult to comply
(with state requirements)."

City may build


new parking lot


ANGELA DAUGHTRY/NEWS-LEADER
This city-owned property at North Second and Broome streets could become a parking lot as part of the
CRA plan.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Although the project has not yet
been budgeted, the city has plans to
turn a treed downtown site into a
municipal parking lot as part of the
Community RedevelopmentArea'plan.
According to city Project
Manager/Engineer Glenn Semanisin,
the city purchased the lot at North
Second and Broome streets from a pri-
vate citizen in 1998 for $100,000.
The lot, two blocks from Centre
Street, would be used for employees
working in the downtown area, and
for overflow weekend and event park-
ing. Semanisin said.
Senior Planner Kelly Gibson said at
a recent Technical Review Committee
meeting that some of the trees growing
on the property could be saved if a
parking lot is constructed, but some


are declining and may be cut down.
Gibson also noted the area in ques-
tion could possibly be converted to a
pocket park, depending on how sur-
rounding structures are used. The old
Standard Marine building, which was
at one time going to be converted to
condominiums, is a block south of the
lot.
Seminisin said the idea to construct
o parking lot at the site came from one
of the original CRA waterfront plans by
planning firm Fleet & Associates of
Jacksonville. The city's CRA was cre-
ated in 2005 to address downtown
"blight" and to bring special tax rev-
enues earmarked to redevelop the des-
ignated area that comprises about 40
acres and 56 properties near the river-
front

'We want to make sure we're fully
compliant with the law and
maximizing the use four tax dollars.'
MATTGRAVES
NASSAU COUNTY FIRE CHIEF


FIRE Continued from A
"I would be very surprised
if more than one (of the
departments) will be able to
sign the agreement," said
County Attorney David
Hallman.
Under the contract, depart-
ments would agree to stricter
standards for hiring, training,
operations and spending,
more in line with state laws,
the fire chief said.
"This is something that's
been simmering on the back-
burner," said Graves, "but now
everything's under the full
microscope, questions are
going to be asked about where
this money goes and what we
have to show for it."
The contract gives the fire
chief approval over any hire
at. the departments and
requires volunteers to pass
pre-employment physical,
drug tests and background
checks. The same would go
for departments that would
become reserve and support
units, according to the con-
tract. Previously, he did not
have any oversight over them,
said Graves, which left the
county vulnerable to issues of
liability.
Reserve departments pro-
vide an excellent training
ground for aspiring firefight-
ers, the fire chief noted, and
would give the county a pool
of qualified candidates to draw
from as vacancies in NCFR
become available. The reserve
program would be an ideal
option for those seeking,
careers in the field, County
Manager Ted Selby said.
Support units, he added,
would be suited more to indi-
viduals that want to help.out,


but aren't seeking careers as
firefighters.
The contract also aims to
curb lax recordkeeping by
mandating up-to-date person-
nel records, including certifi-
cation levels, and the submis-
sion of incident reports no
later than five days after an
incident occurs. Reports on
budgets, roster changes, train-
ing and facilities would also
be due quarterly, according
to the agreement. That issue,
Leeper acknowledged at the
meeting, has been an ongo-
ing concern for volunteer
departments.
Operationally, the contract
requires volunteers to route
all calls through the county's
.dispatch system and notify,
and gainthe approval of, the
fire chieff before putting any
equipment or vehicle into use.
;'0luld l a participating
departmentviolate anX terms
of thico'tract, it could lose its
funding from the county.The
task.9fenforcing those terms
Would fall under the fire
chief.
The five independent
departments located in
Yulee and in or near Callahan
at Gray Gables, Nassau Oaks,
on Ratliff Road and River Road
- received a combined
$230,000 in funding during the
fiscal year 2011-12.
"The entire goal of the
committee when we put it
together was to be able to dis-
cuss a lot of these points
before we were before the
board and everybody would
be on the same page," said
Graves. "Unfortunately, we
weren't able to get a consen-
sus and work forward through
that"

Island a music mecca


Move over Austin, Seattle,
St. Augustine. It sounds like
there's a new town opining to
be a music mecca.
Fernandina Beach has host-
ed two musically charged
events in the past month that
have earned kudos. A barbe-
cue cook-off/concert just
before Labor Day brought in
15,000 people and delivered an
$873,000 impact to the island,
according to tourism officials.
This past weekend, a blues
festival stretched three days
and had similar results. And
let's not forget the granddaddy
of festivals the Isle of Eight
Flags Shrimp Festival which
occurs the first weekend of
each May. It generates a cool
$8.5 million economic boost.
Many of the attendees of
such festivals are tourists,
SOthers come from around the
island and western Nassau
County Either way, the benefits
of tourism and lively events like
these are economic gold.
"People like to travel for
events," says Gil Langley, a top
tourism official here. "We've
tried to support events that
occur in otherwise slow peri-
ods so we even out the visi-
tation."
The weekend before Labor
Day is a chronically slow time,

lodging at $770. Not far behind
is dining out at one of the
island's fine restaurants: at
$400;
These statistics are com-
piled from 300 interviews a
month that Langley and his
staff members conduct. The
TDC is funded by "bed tax" rev-
enues collected by lodging
establishments on Amelia
Island it receives no proper-
ty or sales taxes. The bed tax is
added onto the bill of a typical'
stay
Marketing, promoting and
advertising Amelia Island as a
brand is a winning combina-
tion, And Langley's office has
mastered it. The customer sat-
isfaction with the island is
huge," Langley says. More than
90 percent of visitors are satis-
fled with their stay and plan to
return and would recom-
mend it to their friends and fam-
ily.
Such a high approval rate is
"unheard of in the consumer
market." according to Langley.
And the number of repeat visi-
tors is "off the charts." Many
return three or four times a
year.
The substantial.investments
by private businesses into prop-
erties on Amelia Island reflect
this loyalty among visitors. The
Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island
hotel and the Omni Amelia
Island Plantation have together
invested $150 million into
improvements.
"The private sector doesn't
make that kind of investment
unless they think there's going
to be some kind of return on
it,' says Langley.
The two resorts comple-
ment each other. The Ritz has
been recognized as a posh five-
diamond resort (with one of the
few five-diamond restaurants in
"Salt"), while the Omni ranks at
the impressive four-diamond
level. The two brands are
respected, revered and recog-
nized around the U.S., and the
world.
Along with Salt, the menu
of restaurants on Amelia Island
is dazzling and diverse. Most
are locally owned and operat-
ed, which has a charm of its
own. Many towns in the U.S.
look alike, with thesamiestores
and restaurants,- according to-
studies that Langley quotes.
Amelia Island is "vastly dif-
ferent, With a unique combina-
tion of beaches, resorts and
restaurants.."The number one,
two and three reasons people
come here are the authenticity
of the experience and the qual-
ity of the experience," Langley
says. "We're not homogenized
like every other tourist desti-
nation."
"And we do a good job
of selling that message," he
says.
Tourist visits are up 7 per-
cent this year (over the same
time last year). The list of
events continues to grow, with
a wine festival and a woren's
running event highlighting the
local calendar for the first time.
And next month will be the
ultra-popular Amelia Island Jazz
Festival: headed by acclaimed
drummer Les DeMerle. The
jazz festival lineup has included
legendary Ramsey Lewis and
David Sanborn, and will be
.headlined this year by Spyro
Gyra.
These high-caliber events
attract tourists during season-
ably slow times, energizing the
local economy through the
clean and reliable industry
known as tourism.

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/DEBBY ARNOLD/FERNANDINA BLACI I



A letter to Thomas Paine


Dear Mr. Paine,
When you penned "These are the times Ihat
try men's souls," General Washington read
your writings to his troops at Valley Forge, to
inspire them. And when they nicknamed you
the voice of the common man, your vision for
our budding American Democracy was to end
slavery and to provide social security to the
poor and aged with doctoring for sick patriots
who had not a hen for the pot.
SWell, Mr. Paine, we're about 3/4 of the way
there, and that final 1/4 is trying the soul of
Americans, perhaps more so than those foreign
alliances President Washington warned against.
. I write you regarding our upcoming national
election: Wondering if you find it disquieting
that politicians engage in endless debate as to
whether every man, woman or child within our
borders (including the wretched refuse of teem-
ing shores) is deserving or undeserving of
medical care, affordable or unaffordable (unaf-
fordable is the kind members of Congress
receive)? Or, please don't blush, but should our
candidates then turn to pontificating about the
bodies of women for whom they are neither
physician, clergy, nor loved one? Or, forgive me
for posing this ridiculous question to the mod-
est son ofa corsetmaker, but do you feel our
leaders, spurred on by political mercenaries,


need fritter awayour time and theirs debating
whether two patriot ladies (doubtlessly uncor-
seted) may wed; or, by a similar, but somewhat
different token, whether two patriot gentleman
may, in the pursuit of happiness, tie the knot?
No, I'm not asking if the gentlemen may
marry the ladies without the'whalebone stays,
neither am I asking you to weigh in on the
Constitutionality of this matter. I ask, is it a suit-
able topic for lengthy ad nauseum discourse
when the real domestic issue is not with whom
one chooses to domicile, but the paucity of
good jobs?
Or do you think we're being snookered?
That all the piffling over matrimonial alliances
and whatnot is a smokescreen for not knowing
what in the Sam Hill to do about our perplexing
economy and our vexing foreign wars and
alliances? And, I gotta tell you, modern
weaponry is a cut above the Brit's fearsome
muzzle-loading cannon's range of several hun-
dred yards. If you don't believe what I told you
about the ladies and the gentlemen you'd never
believe the modern armaments of the American
and British and French. Such armaments are
also at the ready in Russia and China and India,
and reputed to be in the pantry of newcomers
to the world map, such as'Pakistan, Iran, North
Korea, Thailand and Israel.

Amelia National Golf & Country Club
features stunning, award winning customiz-
able home plans from Jacksonville, Florida
new homes builder, ICT Homes. Your search.
for Fernandina Beach real estate is over;
offlring some of the most prestigious homes
for sale in Fernandina Beach.
This truly magnificent community embodies country club living at its best:
from the Tbm Pazio-designed, 18-hole golf course and championship-quality
tennis courts to the luxurious fitness and clubhouse facilities.


But let's return to your noble intent that our
nation provide medical care to the impover-
ished, the issui that so tries our souls.
Worldwide nearly 50 nations now provide what
is oft referred to as universal health care to
those with or without a hen simmering in the
pot, even (believe it or not) England!
Our president took us a step closer to uni-
versal health care. And his rival, when governor
of Massachusetts, mandated that all Bay Staters
would have access to good health care. And,
like you, both presidential candidates are men
of strong faith. Our president adheres to the
biblical call that we must care for the least of
our brethren for the poor, for those at the
margins of our society. He answers to the
responsibility to "Speak up for those who can-
not speak for themselves, for the rights of all
who are destitute." (Proverbs 31:8-10). His chal-
lenger, a high priest (as are all adult males in
faithful standing in his belief), must obey the
tenantsof the Book of Mormon: "Impart of.
your substance to the poor, every man accord-
ing to that which he hath." (Mosiah 4:26) They
did impart of their substance, every man
according to that which he had, to the poor, and
the needy, and the sick, and the afflicted; and ...
they were liberal to all." (Alma 1:27-30).
And yet The Republic is deeply and evenly
riven over universal health care. If you find no
logic in this it's.because money, not logic, drives
the forthcoming election, as it does most things
these days; there being a wretched poverty of
ethics yet no absence of malice hence our
trying times. All the more trying because the
Union entered the 21st century with a $236 bil-


lion surplus (that ain't chicken feed) and here
we are 12,years into the new millennium over
$12 trillion in debt (CLUCKI). Of course, you
witnessed the economic crisis brought on by
the Revolutionary War and looked to France to
bankroll us (not gonna to happen this time),
and you've seen great societal upheaval, rever-
sals of fortune, and political stakes presided
over by neither honor nor shame. But in the
end, the greater good triumphed and our nation
prospered; so it goes one can only hope.
However, one thing you will not have seen
before that will gladden your heart as an
enlightened patriot sickened by slavery: Our
president is of biracial parentage his mother,
a U.S. Caucasian; his father a black African
(once imprisoned for fighting against the tyran-
ny of British colonialism whose comrades in
arms won the good fight, gaining nationhood
for Kenya in 1963). And if that doesn't blow
your mind, as we are given to say, our president
was born in our 50th State, Hawaii, the north-
ernmost island group in Polynesia. You knew
Hawaii as TheSandwich Islands, discovered by
British explorer Capt James Cook in 1778.
Small wonder it'didn't become another far-flung
English colony.(like America, or Kenya).
If you find this all increasingly hard to"
believe,you are not alone. In fact, you will find
yourself in excellent company.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Invest in the future
The Historic Fernandina Busi-
ness Association (HFBA) is a non-
political organization. Our goal is to
improve business while benefiting
the community at large. Sounds on
Centre is a fine example.
We support the city's efforts to
improve the downtown area within
a balanced budget. I understand
they have borrowed $1.9 million at
a very low interest rate. They intend
to spend this on saving the down- -"
town library. They intend to improve
the railroad crossings at Ash, Centre
and Alachua streets. Making them
walking friendly and quiet. Invest
in the train depot. Invest in Front
Street and waterfront infrastructure.
The purpose is to prepare for a
future waterfront park when afford-
able.
Again, we are not political. We
are entrepreneurs. Many of us own
the buildings we are in. We employ
over 500-plus people in the down-
town area alone. A good portion of
our members work outside of the
historic district. They are members
by recognizing downtown as a draw I
for the entire island.


I love the saying, '"A' rising
tide lifts all boats." As the Omni,
Amelia Island Plantation and'
The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island pros-
per, so do we. I view the city's efforts,
as an investment in our future as a'
community. I understand risk vs:
reward. We -support the city to
improve the library and invest' in
our infrastructure within a balanced
budget.

Synthetic marijuana
Oct. 1, the new law goes into
effect outlawing the possession, use
and sale of the so-called "legal mar-
ijuana." County Commissioner
Walter Boatwright and Susan
Woodward (NACDAC) were instru-
mental in getting this passed
with the help of State Rep. Janet
Adkins.
I find it hard to believe how many
people still don't know about these
poisons. We need to make this an
issue, to educate the citizens of
Florida and especially Nassau
County. Since this was first brought
to the attention of citizens of this
county, quite a'few people who fur-
nished information and passed the
information along to others has
grown but we still have a lot of work,
notifying the people who missed the
earlier articles.
The people who use these con-
coctions will still get them from ille-
gal means, which is why we need to
put out Idie information again and
join logerher In ul them know,
"These activities will not be tolerat-
ed in Nassau County."
We need to be evermore vigilant
in noticing the things which can be
used by law enforcement officials
to pursue and bring to justice the
criminals who will be selling these
drugs. Notice if your neighbors are
having lots of visitors whoonly stay
a few minutes during all hours of
the day and night
Some hints as to the users: red
around the eyes from rubbing the
eyes so much, wearing hoodies
when it is 95 degrees outside, spon-
taneous laughter or sobbing, hallu-
cinations, nightmares and many
other signs. Some of these effects
can lasts for weeks and even
months. Please pay close attention to
your teenagers and their friends,
just to be safe.
The punishments for violating
these laws are much more stringent
than laws involved with the real mar-
ijuana. Three grams or more is a
felony and can destroy a child's life
in more ways than only physical
harm. Their lives and futures are at
risk. Be more aware and research.
the effects and harm caused by
these mindless drug dealers who
could give a damn if your child dies
or receives serious, irreversible
brain and lung problems, just to
mention a few.
Right now it seems that Florida
has the most effective law dealing
with these problems, thanks'to the
help of people like the ones I men-
tioned above. Now is the time for
all of us to stand up and make our
voices heard and look out for not
only your own children, but for their
friends and also sadly enough adults
who don't know or even care about
the consequences.
Please, let's give this new law
our full support and spread the word
of these contaminated grass and leaf
clippings sprayed with poisonous
chemicals.

Freedom Week
Monday was Constitution Day
and the entire week is Freedom
Week. Both federal and state laws
require school systems to recognize
and commemorate this week with
appropriate ceremonies and activi-
ties.
I urge all parents with children
the Nassau County school system to
ascertain how their children's school
plans to observe and honor these
occasions.
Familiarity with our constitution,
Declaration of Independence, and
other dlocu menls from our founders
is a very important part of their edu-
cat ion.

has made my friend even more

much like one of the Olsen twins.
I wanted to alert you about this
because if my local Walgreen's has
$30 skeletons that are full size, it
might bea national sale. I have had

Nasty politics
How hateful and stupid are we
getting in our country? There is a
large sign in front of a house on the
island that reads "Vote for the

means. Are they so uneducated that
they don't know Hawaii isa state? Or
are they thinking Mormons aren't

Weall builtit
During the recent campaign,
Obama suggested that individuals
cannot successfully build a small
business without assistance from
governmental infrastructure. Re-
publicans, at their convention, dis-
agreed, taking up the chant, "We
built, it" In his Sept. 12 column,
Steve Nicklas agreed with Repub-
licans, calling the belief that an entre-
preneur needs the assistance of the
federal government to build a busi-
ness an "unfounded belief" and argu-
ing that Americans can still succeed
on their own, employing "the ideals
of hard work, enterprise and living
within their means." A small Yulee
business on SR 200 apparently
agrees, stating in the sign outside
the business: "We Built This."
I would urge Nicklas and that
business to consider whether they
could have succeeded without the
United States' strong governmental
infrastructure, which provides edu-
cation, transportation infrastructure,
security and a regulated financial
system. Nicklas' online resume
shows that he graduated from
Thomas Edison State College, a col-
lege subsidized by New Jersey tax-
payers. He is an instructor at Florida
State College, presumably teaching
in facilities built with my tax dollars.
He spent the last four years May
2008 to March 2012- as vice pres-
ident at UBS Financial Services.
During his tenure, UBS received
$5.3 billion in a bailout by the Swiss
National Bank and borrowed $74.5
billion under a U.S. Federal Reserve
emergency program, funded by our
tax dollars. Could he have built his
career without a sound governmen-
tal infrastructure?
Likewise, I Would ask the medical
clinic on SR 200 whether their
employees went to public schools;
whether their doctors or nurses
received medical training at state
colleges or universities, subsidized
by our tax dollars? Did their busi-
ness benefit from the widening and
repaving of SR 200 in front of the
building? Did they build their busi-
ness with federal dollars from
Medicare, Medicaid, Champus and
Tricare?
Nicklas labels those receiving
government assistance as "on the
government dole." But one visit to a
Third World country would remind
all of us how much we all benefit
from a centralized government that
educates its citizens, paves its roads
and provides security and a regulat-
ed financial system. Putting aside
catchy chants and dueling political
parties, we are all, in fact, in this
together.

- Social vultures


Many people see vultures
and shiver at their perceived
ghoulishness. After all, vul-
tures eat dead animals, the
deader the better. In our area
their perfect feast is a road
kill animal "aged" to perfec-
tion stinky, slimy and unsa-
vory in every way to the
human palate at least,,But
hey, folks, give these birds a
chance. Without them we'd
be living in a world full of rot-
ten flesh. Thanks to the vul-
tures, our road kills and other
unsightly messes are cleaned
up in hours, without any cost
to us taxpayers.
In our area we have two
different kinds of vultures,
the turkey vultures with red
heads and the black vulture
with grayish/black heads.
They may look similar, but in
their social behaviors they are
significantly different. Turkey
vultures are usually loners,
with a great sense of smell.
Often a single turkey vulture
will smlj out a dead animal
from faraway, evendone under
the canopy of trees, and will
home in on it.
That's where the black vul-
tures come in. Sometimes
they visually spot a road kill
or other dead animal from
high in the sky, and zoom
down to feast. Or sometimes
they will spot the yrkey vul-
ture and come into share, or
even disrupt, the picnic.
Black vultures travel in
groups and can often evict a
solitary turkey vulture from a


feast that it
initiated.
It's' the
social behav-
ior of black
vultures that
intrigues me
the most.
For, it turns
out, that

tures most

Pat of monoga-
Foster-Turley mous pairs,
mated for
life, and their offspring and
other relatives. And these
birds can live upwards of 40
years, a long time for most
animals to continue to get
along with their relatives!
The social life of black vul-
tures is a regular democracy.
Bonded pairs both take equal
care of their usually two off-
spring, taking turns coming
to the ground nest and regur-
gitating food to the chicks.
When a group is feeding, they
also take turns being the
"scout" and looking out for
danger from a high perch,
while the rest of the group
feeds. Next time you see a
group of black vultures on a
road kill, see if you can find

I have a special fondness
for black vultures, I must
admit, from my long ago days


Pre~nted by speda arranmgen t lim Draml Ply Service, Inc.


when I worked at Marine
World Africa USA in northern
California. My good friend
Mary Rose Spivey was the
bird-of-prey trainer, and her
favorite bird was Igor, a 30-
some-year-old black vulture
t at retired from her role on
the Addams Family television
show (remember that one,
you old timers?).
Well, Igor had no social
group of other vultures, but
she did have Mary Rose, and
she made Mary Rose into her
"mate.' At night Mary Rose
would put Igor into her mews
(night house), a safe haven of
privacy for Igor and her trust-
ed friend. During the breed-
ing season when in the mews,
Igor would display to Mary
Rose in a mating ritual, day
after day, and one day this
would culminate in her laying
an egg. Ofcourse these eggs.
weren't fertile, but the behav-
ior was all there.
I often watched Igor and
Mary Rose together in
moments of intimacy. Mary
Rose would cup her hands
and Igor would but her head
in this human cup and nuzzle
in enjoyment. Igor loved to be
. petted by Mary Rose (but no
one else) and was always on
the lookout for her comings
and goings. I had no such inti-
macy with the bird in fact, I
seemed to be viewed as a
competitor for Mary Rose's
attentions. Whenever I was
anywhere around, Igor would
spot me, and if Mary Rose
was holding Igor, Igor would
attack Mary Rose's leather-
gloved arm in a show of
"anger displacement behav-
ior" when she couldn't get at
me instead.
Knowing Igor as I did, I
gained a lot of respect for the
loyalty of vultures to their kin
and their intelligent social
behavior. And knowing this,

Special students make music in YMS band


-HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader ,
The Yulee Middle School
Marching Band recently added
two new members.
Jacob Smith, a Down's
Syndrome student, and Isaac
Youmans, a visually impaired
student with cerebral palsy,
joined the band at the begin-
ning of this school term and
Principal Jeremy Boatright is
exceptionally proud of them.
"They perform with the
marching band at our football
games and they are amazing
students who .have accom-
plished a milestone perform-
ing in the public eye and mas-
tering an instrument."
Band Director Andy
Shepard has wanted to work
with special needs students for
years.
"During the last half of the
2011-2012 schoolyear, our YMS
special needsstudents came
into the band room during my
fifth-period class once a week
on Fridays"
Shepard began all students
on percussion instruments,!
snare drum, bass drum, tim-
pani and xylophone.
"My students and I worked


with them. We prepared them
to perform in our spring con-
cerl. 1( was a great success."
Over the summer, Shepard
considered involving the spe-
cial needs students with the
marching band and chose Isaac
Youmans and Jacob Smith to
be the first to undertake the
challenge.
Their parents are very
enthusiastic in their praise of
Shepard and the benefits their
sons are reaping by being in
the band.
"By Mr. Shepard including
Jacob in his band, Jacob has a
sense of belonging to a group,
something all middle school
students want to feel," said his
mother, Lori.
Missy Youmans is also
pleased with the impact on her
son Isaac.
"We are so thankful to Mr.
Shepard and the other band stu-
dents for including Isaac in the
band. They have been a great
encourager to him. He is able to
interact with other students,
enjoys school more and pur-
sues his love for music."
Youmans encourages other
parents of special needs chil-
dren to consider having their
kids participate in band.

"Don't be afraid to try some-
thing new. Students with all abil-
ities can participate."
Shepard said Jacob and
Isaac are completely included,
attending the same after-school
practices and doing things just
like the other members of the
band. He was overjoyed with
their first time marching with
the band.
"They performed in the
stands and on the field during

our halftime show along with
the rest of the band. Wow, it
was amazing!"
The only accommodations
made for Youmans and Smith
are mentors, and they have
been very welcoming to their
new band mates, says Smith's
mother.
"The students are very car-
ing and supportive, and are
doing a great job welcoming
Jacob into the band. They help

Jacob in many ways, froln get-
ting him to practice by walking
with him from his classroom to
the band room, to showing him
where he needs to stand in the
bleachers or on the football
field, and even how to play the
instrument. They are such an
important part of this experi-
ence and they are wonderful to
our son. They help make him
feel like part of the band. We
feel very blessed to have Mr.


Shepard and the band students
in our child's life."
Shepard believes this posi-
tive interaction benefits every-
one,
"It has been and always will
be my personal goal to involve
all YMS students in the music
program at YMS. Involving our
special needs students has
only helped to keep this goal
alive."

Donna Arsenault was eight
years old when she made her
career choice.
"I went home with a friend.
Her mother had a salon on the
back of their home and I
thought, That's what I'm going
to be when I grow up.'"
Graduating from American
Styling Academy in Jacksonville
at 24, she went to work at Styles
by Four next to John's Barber
Shop on South Eighth Street
in Fernandina Beach.
"This was about the time
men started coming to the
salon to have their hair cut and
John used to kid us that we
were taking his business."
In October 1974, the dream
of having a beauty shop at
home came true;
"Peopl always tell me they
like coming to my salon
because it has a relaxing atmos-
phere and reminds them of the
movie 'Steel Magnolias,'" says
Arsenault, adding that she likes
having her business in Yulee
because just about everywhere .
she goes, she sees someone
whose hair she has done iri'the
past 40 years.
Framed positive messages
create a cheerful atmosphere in
the small Nassaiville salofl
where regulars can get a shat-
poo and set or blow-dry, hair-
cuts, perms, color, waxing and
ear piercing.
I learned how to do the ear
piercing when my sister-and I
went to a hair show," said
Arsenault.
"After 40 years of being a
hairdresser, I've been very
blessed with wonderful cus-
tomers. Every day is a new
adventure. Like my one sign.

DepuWyaested
Nassau County. Sheriff's

own on a domestic battery
charge Saturday after his girl-
friend told investigators he
pushed her into a wall while
she was carrying her infant
child, according to a police
report.
According to the report, the
incident began when detention
DeputyTerranceJavon Roberts
accused the victim of cheating
bn him aftl sbVretu'ne'4o,,
the coupes home on
Commodore Point Drive in
Yulee.
Police said the confronta-
tion turned into a heated argu-
ment when the couple went into
the master bedroom and
Roberts, 32, would not let the
victim leave.
Though he ultimately
allowed her to leave, Roberts
allegedly shoved the victim into
a wall while she was holding
her baby, the report stated.
Once free, the victim told police
Roberts has been physically
and mentally abusive in the
past, threatening at times to
drive his motorcycle in front of
a semi truck with her on it and
throwing items, such as a tele-
vision, during disputes.
Investigators found no physi-
cal signs of abuse, the report
said.
Roberts told police he did
not put his hands on the victim
and said she was upset because
he would not give her money,
that she is a liar and was only
claiming battery to get even
with him, the report stated.
Investigators found several
scrapes and a "very small dent
in the wall," where the victim
said the battery occurred,
police said. "There were dried
paint shavings on the floor and
a spot on the door frame, also in
the same area as the battery,
where the paint looked to have
been freshly chipped with a
piece of paint still hanging," the
report stated.
One witness, a child, told
police she did not see the bat-
tery, but heard a loud noise as
if something hit the wall and
said "the impact was so strong
it shook the house;" She
also told investigators she
f heard her mother yelling for
Roberts to let her go, the report
stated.
Roberts, who is listed as
weighing more "than 300
pounds, was arrested and
booked into Nassau County Jail
on a single charge of domestic
battery, a misdemeanor. He has
since been released.

ROYAL TERNS AT HUGUENOT

Florida's royal terns enjoyed breeding success ,.
thanks to a successful season at H-uguenot
Memorial Park.
"Huguenot Memorial Park is a truly unique
habitat. Dozens of species of birds have relied on ...
this one beach for survival for gener.ailois.
thankss to a dedicated park naturalist assisted by
volunteer bird stewards, we are seeing progress ic., :S t.
in protecting this special place," said Monique
Borboen, Audubon Florida Northeast Florida pol-
icy associate. "Residents of Northeast Florida are "",
fortunate to have such an important and beautiful .,
bird habitat so close to home."
Huguenqt Memorial Park is the only breeding
colony of royal terns on Florida's Atlantic Coast.
'iis year, the colony fledged over 2,000 Royal .
Tern chicks. Hurricane Debby made landfall at
the height of Florida's beach bird nesting season,
destroying the eggs and chicks of many beach- .'
nesting birds on the Gulf Coast.
"Huguenot is a perfect example of why multi-
ple breeding sites are the best defense for beach ''
birds against natural or manmade disasters,"
said Borboen, adding, "Hurricanes are a com-
mon and natural occurrence in Florida, that's
why nature doesn't like to put all her 'eggs in one :i .
basket.' One strong storm has the potential to .
devastate miles of shoreline habitat and cause the
destruction of multiple breeding bird colonies."
Located at the mouth of the St. Johns River, ,, ;. ,. .:' ;.
Huguenot Memorial Park hosts a wealth of '.. '
declining species, providing vital stopover habitat
for imperiled red knots, federally designated criti-
cal wintering habitat for threatened piping
plovers, a state-designated critical wildlife area '. ... .. ; ''B'.!.
for one of Florida's few laughing gulls colonies, i ;
nesting habitat for marine turtles as well as his- ,
toric nesting habitat for declining American oys-
tercatchers, gull-billed terns, least terns, black
skimmers and Wilson's plovers.

BETH JONES
News-Leader
Senior quarterback Cole
Willis scored on a quarter-
back sneak from a yard out in
the second quarter to put the
Pirates on the scoreboard ,
Friday night at home against
Eagle's View.
The defense held and the
offense capitalized, scoring .
eight plays later on an eight-
yard run by Tony Frankland.
The Pirates were up 14-0 over
the Warriors at halftime and
went on to win 27-12.
"I'm very proud of our
team," said Travis Hudge,
head football coach at
Fernandina Beach High
School "Our offensive line
played much better this week.
I thought they played with an
attitude." ''
Eagle's View answered
with.a touchdown in the sec-
ond half, but the Pirates
weren't finished either.
Willis connected with
Kenriy Stewart for a 12-yard
touchdown pass and then ran
in from a yard out for his
third TD of the night.
The Pirate defense was
stingy, picking off three pass-
es in the second half.
"Defensively it wasn't our
best effort but, anytime you
can force three turnovers, it
should be a good night,"
Hodge said.
Riley Hall, Rhen Burford
and Casey Walker all had
interceptions. Burford had
nine tackles and Hal had
eight stops.

STeJylnacos R A nightly
cookout at the pool finds
numerous families sharing
the day's exciting trips to
Silver Springs, tubing on the
St. Johns River or simply lay-
ing out at the pool reading a
book. In recent years, the
Mills family has taken its fish-
ing gear along and tested the
tropl'gy, largemouth bass
waters of the St. Johns River.
"Travis has really taken a
liking for bass fishing," Allen
Mills said of his 16-year-old
son, Travis. "It all started
when we camped out at the
Nassau Hunt Club, where a
E small pond offered excellent
b ass fishing. Travis would
find time to cast for bass in
the pond after a long day of
Sdeer hunting and was soon
i hooked solid to bass fishing.
S"This summer -his largest
Sbass is an eight-pound bass
that smacked a surface frog.
! Travis really enjoys casting
surface plugs to bass and
: watching them strike his bass
lure right on the surface."
Long before the rest of the
E Fernandina Beach crowd
Started their day of vacation,
Mills and son Travis loaded
their skiff with bass fishing
Tackle and headed south on
the SL Johns.
"Travis and I began cast-
ing plastic frogs and surface

harbored eel grass and lily
pads," Allen Mills said: "Right

hookel up. Finally I had a big
bass strike. r;'le-d in all of my
slack fishing line and set the
hook as hard as the fishing
line would stand."
After a fantastic bass fight
in and out of nearby weed
beds, Travis Mills reached
into the water and secured
his father's eight-pound St.
Johns River largemouth bass.
Once again their big bass was
photographed and released.
Bass fishing during the
summer months can be fan-
tastic, but most avid fisher-
men pass up freshwater fish-
ing for saltwater fishing,
where-big migrations of game
fish have arrived for the sum-
mer fishing season. lowcever,
largemouth bass have to eat
too and can be readily caught
during the heat of summer.
Palatka's Preston Clark
believes some of the best
largemouth.bass fishing on
the St Johns River comes
during the heat of summer.
"Last summer we took a
13-pound river bass while
casting crank baits to the
deep side of sand bars located


in the St. Johns River," Clark
said. "It's not unusual to catch
a limit of bass from one- bar
weighing from 4-8pounds
and doublte-digit bass are also
taken on a somewhat regular
basis."
Many of the local St. Johns
River bass guides will offer
live bait fishing and lure fish-
ing as well during their day of
bass guiding on the river.
While the St. Johns River
offers excellent summer bass
fishing, nearby Lake George
and Little Lake George also
harbor excellent summer
bass fishing and are actually
part of the St. Johns River
system. Striped bass weigh-
ing to 10 pounds are often
found schooling where Salt
Run empties into big Lake
George at the northwest cor-
ner of the lake.
Hog Island is located at
the very north end of Lake
George where summer bass
fishing is enjoyed while cast-
ing topwater plugs early in
the morning and weighted
dark-colored plastic worms
later in the day.
The very southern portion
of Lake George harbors mas-
sive lily pad and eel grass


beds, where surface plugs
worked early in the morning
produce bass weighing o,
eight pounds. liuzz baits
worked at a steady retrieve
over submerged weeds also
take their share of Lake
George summer bass too.
Rob Goyette catches his
fair share of summer bass
while targeting area small
ponds and lakes. Although
Goyette casts a variety of bass
lures during the summer fish-
ing season, his largest bass
this summer weighed eight
pounds and was caught while
drifting a live shiner under a
small float.

Fernandina Beach's historic dis-
trict has a named tree. It is lovingly
referred to as "5Kate's Tree." The tree
is hard to miss. It grows in the mid-
dle of Ash Street between Seventh
and Eighth streets. The story goes
that old Mrs. Bailey, owner of an ele-
gantVictorian home on Ash Street,
and known by the community as
Miss Kate, became irate when she
learned the city was going to take
down the grand old tree in front of
her house. When the workers
arrived to do the deed, she tried to
reason with them, but got nowhere.
She took action. She went into her
house and returned with her hus-
band's shotgun. She settled into a
rocker, shotgun on her knee and did


not leave until the men intent on tak-
ing down the tree had abandoned the
project. The tree still stands.
We all recognize the elegant live
oak as a predictable icon of the
South. Add its signature Spanish
moss and you have the perfect prop
for a Southern gothic classic. What is
it about Quercus virginiana var. vir-
giniana that captures'our imagina-
tions? Is it the broad welcoming
branches with their mossy mantles?
Or is it the shade they offei on the
hottest of Southern summer days?
These wonderful old trees are a
good thing.

Ptoduce talk
Recently, the Fernandina Beach Rotary Club enjoyed a presentation by local small
businessman Joe Johnson, owner of Joe's Produce, who has worked in the food
industry for 50 years and got his start when he was just 16. Johnson begins his day
at/4:30 a.m., traveling towarea farmers' markets to selectthe best seasonal fruits and
vegetables. He said large retailers purchase their produce so far in advance that by
the time it's sold, it might be five to six weeks old. Some items, like bulk pecans and
even onions, are put into cold storage/ at the end of one season and sold the following
year. In contrast, what he sells has almost always just been picked. He noted that the
price of produce has risen nearly 50 percent in the last two months, primarily
because some regions have had too much rain while others are stricken by drought.
He predicted this trend will continue. He stressed that while locally grown vegetables
might not always look their best, they are always fresher and tastier.

Rugbyprimer
Recently, the Fernandina Beach Rotary Club enjoyed a presentation by Jacksonville
Axemen rugby team member Owen Taylor, who lives on Amelia Island and began
playing in college. Dressed as a typical rugby fan, he explained that the sport began
in Australia in 1905. Jacksonville's team, organized in 2006, has already become
one of the most successful in the American National Rugby League. The Axemen just
won their second National Championship, defeating the Boston 13s, 28-22. Taylor
noted that a rugby field is longer and wider than a football field and there are six
downs to a drive rather than four. He discussed some of the key positions such as
the Hooker and Pivot, which are similar to quarterback in football. He also explained
that in rugby a four-point score is made only when the ball goes directly from the
player's hand onto the ground within the Try Zone rugby's equivalent of the In
Zone. He invited club members to see the sport first-hand by attending a game when
the season begins in June 2013.
