JAMES T. HURLEY
ChiefofPolice
F or most residents and visi-
Stors in Fernandina Beach,
j July 30 may have seemed
like just another hot sum-
mer day. However, for members of
the Fernandina Beach Police
Department, the occasion was
marked with a special celebration as
the law enforcement agency quietly
turned 125 years old.
On July 30, 1887, 125 years ago,
the Fernandina (Beach) Police
Department was established by
ordinance by the city council. John
S. Lee was appointed as the first
Chief of Police. The Rules and
Regulations Handbook governing
the "Police of Fernandina" was
adopted on Aug. 17, 1887, and was
just 15 pages long.
By passing the ordinance the
Fernandina City Council estab-
lished a "regular police force com-
prised of one police chief and no
less than four patrolmen." While
the ordinance announced by
Council President Fred Hoyt and
approved by Mayor John Barr did
not specifically state the duties of
the police force, it did require the
police chief to wear a uniform of
navy blue yacht cloth with gold but-
tons and a gold badge. Patrolmen
were required by the ordinance to
wear a uniform of Middlesex navy
blue flannel with silver buttons and
a silver badge. All members were
instructed'by. ordinance to wear a
white helmet in the summer
months and a black helmet in the
winter months.
While some of the department's

history has been lost over time, a
newspaper article on March 17,
1891 noted that while the police
department was not very large in
weight or numbers, the members of
the department had "plenty of grit."
The story recalls an encounter by
Officer Courter of an unruly subject
named Lewis Johnson. The officer
attempted to arrest Johnson, but
Johnson "defied the order to sur-
render and Officer Courter sum- .
moned assistance by blowing his
whistle. Officer Starratt arrived on
the scene and Johnson fought both
officers, injuring Courter with a
blow to the head and injuring
Starratt by kicking him in the side.


A crowd gathered but did not inter-
fere as the officers eventually sub-
dued Johnson and handcuffed him.
As Johnson was brought under con-
trol, Chief Higginbotham and
Officer DeFee, who had been on
the other side of town when the
melee broke out, arrived in time to
assist in escorting Johnson to jail."
The newspaper closed the story by
saying it was glad to note the effi-
ciency of the city's police force and
it hoped that they may "continue to
be a terror to evil doers."
SLike our city, we have a varied
and colorful history. One significant
and tragic incident occurred on
Dec. 8, 1930. While off duty, Police


Chief James "Frank" Surrency
responded quickly to the call of
shots fired and within moments of
his arrival was wounded by gunfire
from the suspect, who moments
earlier had shot and killed a young
woman at his house. After mortally
wounding ChiefSurrency, he later ,
killed another city resident while
attempting to flee from responding
officers. Meanwhile, Chief
Surrency was transported to a
Jacksonville hospital where he died
from his wounds. Chief Surrency
had served the city of Fernandina
for more than 20 years and, at the

City, port discuss need for more security


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
In their second joint meeting with
the Nassau County Ocean Highway &
Port Authority, city commissioners
discussed the critical issue of public
safety around the Port of Fernandina,
among other topics.
City and Port Authority commis-
sioners agreed at the gathering


Thursday that new signs are needed
around the port to communicate its
presence to visitors downtown. They
also discussed (di.-.iL:;I i111i the area
around the port as a "port district"
or the surrounding roads as port
roads.
Port attorney Clyde )avis said two

port executive session: to adopt a
security plan and to create a proce-


dure on how the port handles secu-
rity.
Davis said di..-'rl.aliig the sur-
rounding rdads as port roads would
alertthe public that they are "getting
into an industrial area and may need
to be careful."
"People need to know that you
can't come into the port unless you
have business there," Davis said.
"One of the things under discussion


is, do we need larger signage?"
Davis wrote in a Sept. 14 letter to
City Attorney Tammi Bach that the
discussion about port safety was
prompted by "an incident where a
civilian accidentally drove into the
port."
"'his incident, in turn, provoked a
general discussion of port security

POLICE
Continued from IA
time of his death, occupied
both roles as the city police
chief and city fire chief. He
was just 43 years of age.
To celebrate the 125th
anniversary of the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department, members of
the department designed an
anniversary badge. With tax
dollars tight, it was decided
that officers would be
required to buy their own
badge and could wear it on
their uniforms from July
2012 until July 2013. What
resulted was a unique
design of the City Seal incor-
porated with both the flags
of the state of Florida and
the United States, and a ban-
ner announcing the 125th
anniversary. The concept
was so well received that
some.officers bought one
badge to wear and another
encased in plastic to display.
At the end of the anniver-
sary year the department


will make a decision about
whether to continue to wear
the badges or retire them
from service.
Today the Fernandina
Beach Police Department is
comprised of a police chief
and 29 sworn members.
Whistles have been replaced
by radios and Middlesex
navy blue flannel uniforms
have been replaced by poly-
ester. But the basic duties of
the department have not
changed much in the last
125 years, nor has our nis-
sion to protect lives and
property and to serve the
citizens of Fernandina
Beach. Ours is an exempla-
ry police agency and it is
important to honor our his-
tory and heritage by mark-
ing our 125th anniversary
with some visible sign of
recognition. The new
anniversary badge, coupled
with our new police cars,
seems entirely appropriate.
We hope our community
likes them as much as we
do. ,

1986. Its market value is $4.6
million.
While these price lags are
certainly lower than they
were five years ago, they still
represent impressive values

also represent the top, or ceil-

portive cheer.

Until last year, Social

annual personalized state-

retirement, disability and

those earnings.
Unfortunately, budget con-
straints brought put an end
to those yearly mailings.
But there's good news:
Social Security has resumed
mailing paper statements to
workers 60 and older who
aren't already receiving ben-
efits. And they recently
launched a new Social

allows you to access the
same information.online.
Once you've created an

There were 1,516 closed

year to late. )f that number,
914 were traditional sales and
602 (39.7 pei cent)'were lender-
mediated sales.
Sale prices continue on the
upswing, with August's median
price of$141,750 marking a 4.8
percent increase year to date
and a 3.5 percent increase over
last August. Average sales price
during August rose to $196,294,
equating to a 5.6 percent year to
date increase and a 9.9 percent
increase over August 2011.
Breaking down sales prices
into property types, the median
price of traditional homes year
over year was flal, but sales
prices for lender-mediated prop-
ertics jumped 15.7 percent.
Inventory of homes for sale


dropped 30.4 percent to hit
8.915. This equates to a 5.7
months' supply of homes for
sale, within normal range. By
comparison, there was an inven-
tory of 12,804 homes for sale
last August.
Sales a-e moving faster, stay-
ing on market in August an
average of 110 days. and year to
date an average of 113 days,
Consumer interest in own-
ing a home is not waning, as
evidenced by a 34.3 percent
year over year increase in pend-
ing sales to reach 2,011. Year
to date, pending sales are up
15.5 percent.
It is interesting to note that
15.6 percent of sales in August
were sold for a price higher than
the listing price. Demand for
properties below $200,000 in
particular is stimulating multiple
and higher offers.

VIEWPOINT/HAROLD VOYLES/FERNANDINA BLACI I



Here we go again: the


member of the acadc-

E veryI k' fw years orso, a
mia. armed with noth-
ing more than a;n over-
rated Phl) from an elite Ivy
League school, emnerges frotll
their intellectual caverns (all
liberals are supposed to be
intellectuals) to announce a
resounding discovery inI
archaeology, history, medi-
cine, religion or science. So
the latest media hysteria
induced discovery is simply
another politically correct cof-
fin nail in the study of antiqui-
ty.
The most recent example
concerns a Harvard professor
who boasts that irrefutable
evidence exists proving that
Jesus was married. Karen
King, divinity professor at
Harvard, says the proof is a
fragment of papyrus from the
fourth century. The writing is
in Coptic, the language of
Egyptian Christians that sup-
posedly contains a reference
to Jesus being married.


This view, of course, con-
flicts with long-heldk Christiant
beliefs that Jesus 'Christ, tihe
Son of God and the Messiah,
led a sinless life', never nmar-
ried, never fathered children,
nor had a romantic relation-
ship. His purpose in corning to
Earth was to redeem humani-
ty through his death, burial
antd resurrection by restoring
the relationship between (od
and the world. C l.i i -.i,
believe this relationship is
restored when someone will-
ingly accepts Jesus as Inrd.
and Savior.
Perhaps no passage in the
Bible states it so simply, yet
profolndlly as John 3:16: "For
God so loved the world that
he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in
him should not 1lerish, but
have everlasting life."
You might wonder why
people take offense when so-
called discoveries from the
ancient world claim to invali-
date Christian beliefs that


It is amazing how quickly

based on the flimsies


have been broadly accepted
for over 2,000 years. The
answer is simple intellectual-
ly lazy liberals, who have a
shallow and superficial under-
standing of the Bible, can earn
a few bucks by coming up
with the latest radical chic
interpretation of the life and
meaning of Jesus.
C.S. Lewis summed it up
best. Lewis, who was a bril-
liant Christian writer, but bet-
ter known to many as the
author of children's books like
the Chronicles of Narnia, said
to never refer to the political
left as intellectuals because
when you reject their foolish-
ness, it gives the false iimpres-
sion of rejecting intelligence.

would be bathed in enlighten-
mcnt. Th' r followers would
likely hop around a campfire ,
chanting "peace is a river"
while their high priestess taps
on an empty lard bucket. But
if that same professor
expressed belief in Jesus, he
would be ridiculed worse than
a fiscal conservative at the
I)emocratic National
Convention.
Just imagine the basher's
outrage if the media treated
the Christian faith with the
same respect as other reli-
gions. Why it might even
cause an ACL U lawyer to cut
off his ponytail with dull
hedge clippers, or move a

So why does every few
years so-called new revela-
tions about Jesus cause so
much fervor, excitement and
controversy? People are con-
flicted about this man called
Jesus. You might get the
pagan left to talk about a
generic god, a new-age god,
or even someone to confess
they worship an oak tree, a
cantaloupe or even a com-
mode plunger. But when any-
one mentions the word Jesus,
their hackles go up, their
minds close and they spew
names like "narrow-minded,
fundamentalist, light-wing
bigot, religious zealot and
hatemonger." $
Every year the attacks
upon the Christian faith by the
leftist media, pseudo-intellec-
tuals, the ACLU and other
staunch advocates of militant
humanism increase.
Consequently, many of these
attacks will be directed
against belief in Jesus as the
Messiah. However, their weak
arguments will only make the
light of Christ shine farther
and brighter.
Meanwhile, scoffers will
continue to scoff because they
are unable or unwilling to look
at something from a different
perspective. It's kind of like
the circus roustabout, when
asked if he was tired of shov-
eling up after the elephants
exclaimed, "What! And give
up show business?"

Disabled access

of Amelia Island there ar'e no long-
tern vacation rental properlries thial
accommodate disabled lpersonts.
Ionglimre friends of nmine wlho live
in the North Carolina mountains
wanted to spend a ionth herIe dur-
ing the winter and scoured every
property management and vacation
rental website, only to find Ihat ihe
husband's needs (he has AIS and
uses a walker and a power chair)
could not be accommodated in any
rental. Surely properly managers
and rental property owners realize
There is a large and growing -
market for disabled access. I trust
this situation will be soon remedied:
many retiring baby boomers will
be needing these accomnmodations
in the future, and surely Amelia
Island does not want to be left out.

To all the residents of Fernan-
dina Beach I've served over the past
16 years: I wish to thank you for
making my job so pleasant and to
have shared a part of each otlhe(r's
lives. It's been like having a very
large, diversified family since I was
from far away in my home state of
Pa.
After retiriAg Aug. ?31, 2012, I
have missed you all. Inl closing, I
wish to share a poem I found years
ago.
"I shall pass through this w\ay
but once. If therefore, there be any
kindness I can show or any good I
can do my fellowman, let me not
defer or neglect it, for I shall not
pass this way again."

Seven Deadly Sins
We are very fortunate to have
all the educated Gurus in the area
to warn us about committing any
one of the seven deadly sins when
it comes to voting in the November
election. Us pore cle piney woods
runners need all the help we can
get.
I would bet that most of the
diehard Democrats vote thie
Democratic ticket for the same rea-
son that my dad did; that's what his
daddy did, and what his granddad-
dy lid. It's a gene passed down fiom
one g. niiili. ll t to the nexl. There
are a few rebels, like me, Ithat failed
to bridge the generation gap, andt
fell into the water.

about giving loaded guns to some
Republican politicians, as they keepl

The inept Congress is a parallel'
to sore of the road systems, such
as AlA between Fernandina andi

Health care access
This writer is of the belief that
iealthl care access for all is a respoxn-
sibility of tihe entire community.
benjamin Franklin, one of our
founding fathers, was Ithe first to
discuss what citizenship was. After
tllh Revolut ionary ,War. Blenjaminr
Franklin was asked about what it
imleaint to be a citizen of this new
country. He answered citizenship
is not a right but rather a privilege.
And with it came a responsibility
to provide for the needs of the vil-
lages and towns. John F. Kennedy
expressed that concept when lie
said, "Ask no t what your country
canl do for you. butl what you can do
flor your countryli ."
W\' cml take both of thlse con-
cepts andi move them to ourl own
local level. If youl believe in these
statlleenlts it c:an be assumed that
being a citizen of Fernandina Beach
and Nassau County comes with it
the responsibility to see that every-
one, regardless of means, has
health care.
The question at hand is how
does tlhat health care get delivered
and financed. The health care does
not have to be provided by the gov-
ernment. But rather hospitals, clin-
ics, social service agencies, physi-
cians, churches, voluntary service
groups in the community and busi-
ness can choose to come together
as a community whom feels the
need to be good citizens and devel-
op their own local response.
As a result of my previous arti-
cles and the dialogue that has been
occurring in the newspaper (Voice
of thie People, Sept. 12) it appears
that this writer has been a catalyst
that has developed a community
discussion. My goal has always
been to develop a communlity-based
exchange of ideas. For those ofyou
who have been angered by what
was said 1 strongly encourage you
to emailal 1, and 1 would love to
neet with anyone, whether they
agree with me or not, for coffee so
that we canl reach a lmultall agree-
able position.
This exchange in the communi-
ty with these articles and olher dis-
cussions lhas created a small group
of individuals who view health care
as being parI; of their role as good
citizens in lhc area. The group has
nl(e once and (lhe two areas that (he
group is exploring are tlhe creation
of a small business cooperative'
coiilnywide to Zeroi in oln lose busi-
nesses 1 hat at presentn cannllot afford
health care for themselves or their
employees. The second group alre
'those who are presently oni
Medicare who could also form tht'ir
own purchasing cooperative and be
able to get sullpplementalM Medicare
insurance that they either were not
able to purchase or Inow can pur-i
chase it al a lower rate. In either of
Ihese cases (he idea is to create a
greater piurchalsingl power in the
marketplace.

One nation?
President )bama recently said,
'"America is not about what can beh
done for us. It's about what can be
done by us together, as one nation,
as one peopler'i Is that why his wife,
Michl'll Obalua, spoke al the
Congressional Black Caucus tout-
ing "he march of our ltimne?" All of


us Americans weren't in the
civil rights marches in the past, so
I don't think she was inviting me
to be a part of this "march of our
time."
It's time for us to look around
and see what is dividing our coun-
try today. As a 71-year-old white
woman, much of my life has been
spent giving up something to get
something better. I believed the
rhetoric. My country's leaders told
me that it was time to change. I
remembered the children's song,
"Red and yellow, black and white,
they are precious in His sight." And
I tried. I tried to get rid of the racist
ideas that were a part of my gener-
ation. I accepted integration, which
touched every part of my life. Never
once did I march in protest of hav-
ing to give something up!
Now I am feeling taken advan-
tage of' The final straw was the First
l;ady of the United States of
America speaking to the
Congressional Black Caucus (I
thought it was against the law to
have an organization which pro-
moted one race)! It doesn't sound
like one nation, one people to me. It
really hurts my feelings and makes
me angry to realize that all I tried to
do to change made no difference.
As a young person I was raised in a
racist society 1 guess 1 still live in
one jiusl a different one. I have
carried this load most of my adult
life. But I have paid my dues, I have
accepted change, I have tried. Now
it is someone else's turn to change
so this can be the great nation it
should be.

The hope ofwomen
Following the actions and reac-
tions to events in the Middle East
has become a constant with news
junkies like me. Much of the news
whether it's Egypt, Syria, Libya,
Iran, or Israel is at best confusing,
at worst fearful and depressing.
That is, with the exception of several
women's groups in many of these
countries and their progress edu-
cationally, politically and economi-
cally.
From Tahrir Square in Egypt to
other Arab countries, women have
begun to have a voice in national
policy. Why is that hopeful? Because
Sit is much easier to tyrannize a peo-
ple when more than half the popu-
lation is uneducated and untrained.
That is changing in the Middle East
and many bf the less developed
countries in the world.
Would Assad be able to sustain
his reign of terror if more Syrian
women, of all ethnic groups had
been involved in the internal affairs
of this nation's development? If
women increasingly have educa-
tional opportunities in the Mideast,
as elsewhere, doesn't democratic
-cultural shifting often take place?
Today, more than half lhe students
in Egyptianut universities arc female
and it shows! The protest move-
nlents against tyrannical regimes
have often followed the dernocrati-
zation of its younger women (and
illen).
In addition to other changing
dynamics, there remains a very old
basic fact of life. Women of the
world still bear the world's children.
Without trying to get technical, they
are generally the original nurtur-
ers of most national populations. As
such, they may have a deeper con-
nection and basic understanding of
human development, which hope-
fillly evolves into a less destructive
outlook on life and the future.
Asa 71-year-old American male,
there's a lot I don't know about the
digital age. It both amlazes arnd
frightens nm. Iin ily opinion, how-
ever, a grand part of this change is
thit information is universal. What
happened in Tahrir Square and is
now taking place in Syria and Libya,
can no longer be hidden away as
dirty little secrets for that, God
bless the cell phone. Yes, there neg-
atives but in the case at hand, hope
definitely springs eternal.

The trutht
To all of the Obama fans who
submitted letters of support on Sept
26: The "truth" is plain on what tran-
spired in Libya. President Obama,
Secretaries Clinton and Panetta and
Ambassador Rice unequivocally lied
to the American public. They lied to
you those who voted for him and
support him albeit he threw every
one of us under the bus. Will you
still vote for a president who clear-
ly lied to America?
Andre Libert
Fernandina Beach

The presidential election is com-
ing down to the wire. The primaries
and conventions are over.
Americans are bracing for the last
round of campaign ads. The debates
are right around the corner. The
polls are numerous and confusing.
But what will be the deciding factor
that will make people vote one way
or the other? Let's forget about
promises made, politics, religion,
ideology, party platforms and all
the social issues that divide us. We
have debated and argued all these
points for decades, and will contin-
ue to debate them.
Let's put aside our opinions on
national security, gun control, EPA
regulations, foreign policy, future
Supreme Court justice appoint-
ments and our standing on the
world stage. These are important,
but let's simply look at the facts that
we can all understand, some truth
that we can all get our heads around
in order to make sense of the cur-
rent administration's record during
these last four years. Keep the focus
on our wallets and pocket books
and look at the telling facts about
the administration in Washington,
D.C., that wants to be re-elected.
We may not entirely understand the
complexity of government, but we
all understand the dollar impact on
our daily lives.
This administration's fiscal poli-
cies and economic record are dis-
mal. The debt has increased 55 per-
cent, trillions of dollars have been
borrowed from foreign countries
and the unemployment rate has
been over 8 percent for 42 consec-
utive months with people dropping
out of the work force in staggering
numbers. Gas prices at the pump
have doubled, food prices are
increasing at an alarming rate and
our nat ion's cbal plants are closing
Down due to unreasonable regula-
tion causing electric rates to soar.
House prices are the lowest since
2002, the $900 billion stimulus failed
to accomplish the goal of creating
jobs and Medicare was robbed of
$700 billion putting the health care
plans of many seniors in peril. Our
credit rating was down graded not
once, but twice during the last four
years.
These are the undeniable eco-
nomic facts on record. The facts
that affect everyone's wallet sepa-
rated from all the other non-eco-
nomic issues. The facts that should
help us answer the question, "How
am I going to vote in November?"
These facts cannot be ignored.
Anot her fact is that we are heading
towards an economic cliff. Four
more years of the same economic
results provided under this presi-
dent will push us over that cliff. If
that happens then all the other
issues simply won't matter anymore
because America will no longer
have the wherewithal to deal with
them. Our lives will be fundamen-
tally changed into one of survival
mode, and no one' will care about
the finer debate points of political
platforms.
CEO)'s in business are evaluated
mainly on finan cial matters. If they
don't produce the expected results,
they are replaced by (lhe board of
directors with no hesitation.
American voters must be the board
in November. It is incumbent oin us
to replace this president and Ihis
administration in order to get our
country's economic house in order.
This fiscal irresponsibility must
stop. No hesitation. No excuses.

Through Dumela's eyes


For a cat like l)umela
filled with youthful
curiosity but confined
to a house 24-7
'there's plenty to watch right
outside the windows. We have
arranged our outdoors to pro-
vide for her viewing pleasure!
First off, there's the bed-
room window, a favorite hang-
out for l)umela in the morn-
ing while Bucko and I lounge
around nearby with our cof-
fee and newspapers. This win-
dow is the "bird window." The
nearby bird feeders are
always stocked with millet
and black-sunflower seeds, a
mix that we've found draws in
the maximum number of
cardinals, sparrows, chick-
adees and finches. An adja-
cent birdbath provides for
their drinking and bathing
needs.
But better yet, this all pro-
vides lots of viewing fun for
young Dumela. In early sum-
mer the cardinals, finches and
chickadees bring their fami-
lies over to these resources to
teach them the trade of subur-
ban living. The inexperienced
young birds sometimes fly
near our windows, or even hit
against the screen, oblivious
to the stalking "tiger" lurking
nearby, salivating and grum-
bling at the excitement of it
all just beyond her reach. If
Dumela is lucky she also gets
close up views of squirrels
and the occasional small rab-
bit that visit sometimes too.
When these critters run

Il)unla
runs too,
through the
living room,
watching
them win-
(low by win-
(low, a bit of
exercise for
this couch
lx)tato.
When
this excite-
ment pales
for her,


Dumela has other windows to
check out too. Dumela is
especially fond of watching
bugs, and we've got those as
well. The window in our
office, where she stations her-
self when one of us is working
on the nearby computer, is a
great bug-watching spot. The
bottlebrush bush nearby
attracts bees and butterflies
and sometimes even hum-
mingbirds, a treat for us all.
Earlier this year she had
another insect-watching treat
too. A pair of mating two-
striped stick insects (aka dev-
ils riding horses) was
engaged in their business on
the window screen in our
kitchen, a sight that trans-
fixed Dumela for hours, off
and on all day. She was lucky
this time that she was behind
the window. When startled or
disturbed these insects can
shoot out a spray of painful
chemicals directly into the


eyes of their t(orienters, a
great defense strategy you've
got to admit.
Then there are the reptiles
in our midst. Our ront win-
dow facing west is hot and
sunny in the afternoons, a
perfect hangout for both
Cuban and green anoles.
These lizards chase bugs
right in front of the window,
offering a fine view of their
hunting skills for Dumela to
study. Sometimes she and I
watch the anoles together
while I work on my jigsaw
puzzle on the front room table
when I lake a break from my
work on the computer.
One day from this window,
Bucko, Dumela and I all
watched a black racer snake
work its way through the
bushes chasing anoles. In one
near miss an anole jumped
from the bush to the ground,
with the snake in hot pursuit,
while we watched the action.
It was fun for one and all,
except, I'm sure, for tile
snake and anole.
Even the most youthful cat
still needs plenty of beauty
rest and we've provided that
for her too in various places
around the house. As the sun
moves across the sky, the
sunbeams enter different
rooms and Dumela knows
just where to bask in the sun
at whatever time of day she
chooses. oAnd, for those times
that she does not want to be
bothered by anyone she has
lots of nooks and crannies in

stant vigilance against
enemies that want to eat them
instead, the discomforts of

Bruce seeks seat on Port Authority board


Following 40 years in the
maritime industry and having
recently retired as vice presi-
dent and general manager of
Amelia Maritime Services, Inc.,
Richard Bruce is seeking elec-
tion to the Ocean Highway &
Port Authority District I seat in
the Nov. 6 general election.
He seeks to unseat incunm-
bent OHPA Commissioner
Melvin Usery, who is seeking a
second term.
Bruce has been married for
39 years to his wife, Nora, a
retired schoolteacher. His son,
David, and granddaughter
Jennie also live in Fernandina
Beach.
Richard Bruce holds a BBA
in marketing from the
University of Georgia.
His maritime career has cov-
ered all types of cargoes and
ocean carriers and, most impor-
tantly, many ports. He has been'
an active member of various
maritime-related organizations
including the Propeller Club of
the United States, and numer-
ous World Trade organizations.
Locally, he has served as pres-

"Since this is an election year
for the port's District 1 seat and
I had planned to retire soon,
the timing was just right for me
to ask the voters of Nassau

Commissioners," Bruce said in
a prepared statement. "I hand-
ed off my duties as vice presi-

As the board has no current

"()ur port is in a highly com-
petitive business against lthe

ports have huge budgets and
large sales departmentss with
offices around the world. They
are aggressively expanding and
promoting their facilities. Our
port must promote its great fea-
tures and service or be left
behind. My experience will help
us to expand our customer base
and compete more favorably in
the future. It is essential that
we grow our port in the number
of customers, cargo volume,
ships calling at our port and the
capacity of our terminal in order
to reverse the recent declines in
those numbers.
"My ultimate goal is to cre-
ate jobs in Nassau County and
stimulate our economy. Having
spent my career bringing ships,
ports and cargo together I sin-
cerely believe that my election
would be of great benefit to the
citizens of Nassau County. Life

POLICE REPORT


77hi s was written by Garrett
Pelican ofthe News-Leaderfrom
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
the city of Fernandina Reach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion ofa crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the "We Tip" program 1-
800-78CRIME which allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.
Car chase
Police arrested a Georgia
man Sunday after he led depu-
ties on a high-speed chase
through Fernandina Beach
before ditching his car and los-
ing them on foot, according to a
police report.
Police said the incident
began when a blue Toyota with
a broken tail light, driven by
Matthew James Costa, failed to
pull over for a traffic stop. Costa,
25, then led police on a chase
surpassing 100 mph at times
before bailing from his car at a
dead end on Beech Street and
fleeing into the woods.
A passenger gave them
Costa's wallet, which contained
his state ID, Social Security card
and birth certificate and a bag
of marijuana, the report stated.
She said she asked Costa to stop
several times; but he refused
because he was driving with a
suspended license, according to
the report.
Police recovered a shoe from
the woods, identified by the pas-
senger as Costa's, and recov-
ered a dirty change of clothing
from a Tarpon Avenue apart-
ment where Costa was later
found, they said.
Costa allegedly told police
he fled because of his suspend-
ed license, but said the mari-
juana was not his, the report
stated.
Costa, of Ocilla, Ga., is
charged with fleeing or attempt-
ing to elude law enforcement,
resisting officers without vio-
lence, possession of less than
20 grams of marijuana and driv-
ing while his license was sus-
pended, with knowledge. He
remains at Nassau County Jail
on a $65,000 bond.
Pillbust
Police arrested a Callahan
man on drug charges Saturday
morning after finding pills on
him during a traffic stop, accord-
ingto a police report.
Police stopped a blue pickup
driven by Charles Lee Brown
Jr. about 7:45 am. as he turned
into a James Street residence
because he was driving errati-
cally and making wide turns,
they said.
"The arrested exhibited
slurred speech, bloodshot eyes,
swayed while standing and fum-
bled for his license when
attempting to get it out of his
wallet," the report stated.
Brown Jr., 34, told police he
was a heavy equipment operator
on his way to work and alleged-
ly said he had taken five pills of
methadone, a narcotic pain
reliever, before leaving the
house. Police said they found a
prescription bottle of oxy-
codone, a narcotic pain reliever,
as well as a container of
methadone on Brown.
There were 26 whole and 2
half methadone pills, police said,
and 34 oxycodone pills in a.pre-
scription for 90 that was filled
just one day prior.
Brown performed poorly on
field sobriety tests, police said,
but his breath samples regis-
tered no alcohol.
Brown, of 54098 Penny Lane,
Lot 12, Callahan, is charged with
possession of a controlled sub-
stance without a prescription
and driving under the influence
of alcohol or drugs.
Stun gunused
Police arrested a Fernandina
Beach couple Thursday after a
brief struggle following a traf-
fic accident that downed a tele-
phone pole, according to a police
report.
The incident began at the
crash site on North 14th Street,
where a blue pickup ran off the
road and into the woods and
uprooted a telephone pole,
police said. The totaled truck
was abandoned, but police said
they followed a frantic Laura
Marie MoreDT from the wreck
to the old pogy plant, where they
found the driver.
At the plant, Moren was
found arguing with Arthur
Mitchell Caruso aboard a


shrimp boat, police said. Moren,
39, was warning Caruso, 41, of
the police approaching and try-
ing to pull him away from them,
the report stated.
One deputy stunned Moren
while another tried to cuff
Caruso, police said. Caruso
pulled one deputy to the ground,
but was handcuffed after a brief
struggle, the report slated. Both
were ordered to stop resisting
and gel on the ground, the
report stated.
Police said Moren and
Caruso both smelled of alcohol,


were treated for injuries and
taken to Nassau County Jail. At
the jail, deputies found a bag of
marijuana on Moren, the report
stated.
Caruso, of 2225 Susan Drive,
Fernandina Beach, was charged
with resisting a law enforcement
officer with violence. Moren, of
the same address, was charged
with introckucing contraband
into a detention facility, resist-
ing without violence and disor-
derly intoxication.
Knife thrown
A Hilliard woman was arrest-
ed Sept. 26 for aggravated
assault after she allegedly threw
a knife at her boyfriend during
an argument, according to a
police report.
Witnesses told police that
Jennifer Lynne Malone was
yelling at her boyfriend when
she grabbed a kitchen knife and
threw it at him. The knife did not
strike him, police said.
Malone, 37, told police she
threw items from a kitchen
drawer at her boyfriend, but did
not remember throwing a knife,
the report stated. She told police
that she tried to grab her
boyfriend's phone and he hit her
in the face, police said.
Juvenile witness told inves-
tigators that he saw Malone
throw the knife, but said it land-
ed in front of the victim. He said
the victim did not strike Malone,
police said.
Once in custody, Malone
allegedly told police she should
have stabbed her boyfriend if
she was going to jail for it.
Malone, of 574715 Lessie
Road, Hilliard, is charged with
aggravated assault with a dead-
ly weapon.

Fernandina Beach Police will now drive the new Ford Police Interceptor, above, a
heavy-duty version of the Ford Taurus, witp a six-cylinder engine as opposed to the
eight-cylinder standard in the old Crown Victoria. Officers also will sport a new

When the Ford Motor Co. announced that
it was discontinuing the iconic Crown Victoria
Police Interceplor, considered the standard for
police cars for more than 15 years, police
departments across the nation were forced to
find a reasonable replacement vehicle.
With five aging vehicles that were scheduled

with City Fleet Manager Jeremiah (lisson to
review appropriate options. lTogether the
agreed that the new Ford Police hiterceptor, a

The1 new front wheel drive vehicle has
a six-cylinder engine as opposed to the
eight-cylinder standard in the old Crown
Victoria. The new vehicle was compared
with other options on the market and fared
well in pricing against the Chevrolet or Dodge
options.
The new vehicles arfe smaller by design and
should provide better gas mileage on a regular
basis. Because modern police vehicles typi-
cally support numerous electrical gadgets and
computerized systems, a solar panel was
installed on the- roof-mounted light bar to pro-
vide additional charging capability and-4o off--set
electrical draining when the vehicle is not in
operation. The solar boost is expected to pro-
long the life of the vehicle battery and reduce
ancillary per formance issues related to the
electrical system.


The five new police vehicles and all the
required equipment were purchased using con-
fiscated funds from local narcotics investiga-
tions, reducing the burden on the general fund
and local taxpayers.
The new vehicles are all equipped with front,
rear and side warning lights, in-car video cam-
- erasmplastic molded rear seats, prisoner harri-
ers and the new design package.
The new markings were designed by a com-
mittee comprised of various members of the
police department, along with citizen and indus-
try input.

ScanI McGill was flying
home from a music festivalin
Atlanta on a Sunday afternoon,
Sept. 23, when the landing geair
on his Piper Comanche failed.
After circling the Fernandina
Beach airport for a half hour
while he conferred with friends
in the air and on the ground,
McGill knew what he had to do
- land the plane on its belly.
Neither McGill nor his two
passengers was hurt, but the
Federal Avialion Administration
is investing eating the incident,
and officials from the agency
catme to Fernallllilla last week
to interview McGill and exam-
ine Ihe' plane, he said.
The incident didn't affect air-
port operations, he said,
because McGill landed the
plane' on1 a closed runway.
The cause ol the malfunc-
lion is pending an investigation
from the federal agency, but
McGill said once he was on the
ground, mechanics were able to
locate the problem.
"There was, for a lack of a
better word, part of the exhaust

system that had come off the
engine," said McGill. "... It
lodged itself in such a way.that
prevented the gear from com-
ing down."
McGill knew something was
wrong about 1:45 p.m. when he
tried to lower the craft's landing
gear. A lever that moves as the
landing gear deploys stopped
midway through its motion, he
said.
"That. was the first indica-
tion that something was not
right," he added.
The landing was like any
other, Mcgill said, save for the
fact that he turned off.the
engine for about 30 seconds,
aiming to avoid any damage to
the single-engine aircraft's l)ro-
peller. Unfortunately, the pro-
peller kept spinning as the
plane skidded across the pave-
ment, bending its blades back-
ward.
"The only thing that we did
differently is we did actually
turn the engine off about 30
seconds to try and get the pro-
peller to stop spinning, hoping
that it wouldn't make contact
with the ground," said McGill.
"That didn't happen because
the speed was such that the
propeller kept spinning and it
hit the ground and the propeller
bent back."
City Manager Joe Gerrity
and rescuers from Fernandina
Beach Fire Rescue were on

hand for McGill's landing, he
said.
"We had emergency servic-
es here just in case anything
had gone bad," McGill said.
"In the end, nobody was
hurt and the plane is, I think,
repairable," he said. "We made
some good decisions, but we
were able to stay calm and think
through them."
The plane will require
repairs to damage sustained to
its belly during the landing, the
propeller will need to be
replaced, but everything else
is subject to a mechanic's
inspection, McGill said.
"Any time you can land a
plane and walk away is a good
landing," he said. "Any time you
can land a plane and walk away
and the plane isn't damaged is
a great landing. So, this was a
good landing."
Though he counts himself
lucky, McGill, a pilot of 10 years
and the airport's fixed-based
operator, said the incident was-
n't as sensational as it seems. It
never became a life or death
situation, he said.
"The important thing is to
take your time and not make
any rash decisions," McGill
said. "That's why we kept flying
around, and like I said, we were
talking with people on the
ground and talking with peo-
ple in the air. We came up with
a plan and in the end, every-
thing turned out fine."

Arson investigation into



fire at candidates shed


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader

A structure fire that con-
sumed a work shed at the
Callahan residence of a former
candidate for county commis-
sion Sept. 3 is being investi-
gated as a possible arson, offi-
cials said.
S Authililic-. 'have yet 'to"'
determine the cause of the
blaze, according to a police
incident report. But spokesper-
son Deborah Jamison said the
State Fire Marshal's Office has
stepped in to investigate at the
request of the homeowner,
Ken Overstreet, who was
unsuccessful in a bid for coun-
ty commission in the August
election.
Alice Overstreet told inves-
tigators that the fire, which
consumed the 10-foot by 10-
foot shed, is the second in less
than a year at the couple's
Country Trail Drive home, the


ed.
"W e are
responding
to that fire.
arIt is atn
o Jsngo isng

Overstreet tion. While
m we ar:e
S in i nvees igat-
ing, we cannot release any
information that might jeop-
ardize the investigation,"
Jamison said.
Jamison said the fire mart-

requested, but cannot step in
unless asked by a local agency,
an insurance company or a pri-
vate citizen.
"Usually, it's a fire depart-
ment that calls, or a law
enforcement entity, and we
come in and assist with the
investigation," said Capt. Phil
Rumman with the Jacksonville
field office of the State Fire


Marshal.
In the past, Nassau County
Fire Rescue has deferred to
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office when determining the
cause of a fire, Chief Matt
Graves said.
"We typically defer to the
sheriff's office for final deter-
niination of cause," the fire
c' ief said. "The system's been
in place at least since the pre-
vious fire chief, Sam Young,
has been in office."'
Captain Michael Eddins of
Nassau County Fire Rescue
said he could not determine if
the source o.f the fire was
arson, electrical or lightning,
the police report stated.
Alice Overstreet saw'the
shed door ajar and a small fire
burning in between the door
and a mower, she told police.
But the couple locked the door
after they finished mowing
about 1:30 p.m. earlier that day,
she said.

and Amelia National Golf Club for hosting the event. Special thanks to First Baptist Church who held
their annual Toyland Concert which generated a lot of donations and.they provided over 30 youth to
help sort, bag and distribute the toys to needy families. Special thanks to the MGA of the Golf Club of
Amelia for dedicating a Saturday play day to Toys for Tots by requesting the contribution of a toy by
every golfer who played that day. There were other businesses and organizations that held toy drives
like the American Legion, O'Kanes Pub and Yulee High School Honor Society. Thanks to over 30 busi-
nesses and all the fire stations in the City.and County who helped raise toys by having drop boxes in
their locations. U-Store-It provided their facilities for the 11th year in a row so we could store, sort &
bag all the toys. The Nassau County Volunteer Center helped screen applicants and coordinate with

with a new time Fridays at 7 p.m.


Challenger Bowling kicks off


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
The Nassau Challenger
Bowling League kicks off at a
new time this season: 7 p.m,
Friday at Nassau Bowling
Center, 50 US 17 South in
Yulee.
Created to provide a fun
outlet for those ages 10 to 28


with physical challenges such
as autism, cerebral palsy or
other differences, the league
also offers parents an oppor-
tunity to network about the
many challenges of caring for
a person with a disability.
Primary founder Melinda
Willaford says bowling night
is a fun time for parents and
kids alike.


"Our 'challenged' kids and
young adults enjoy their time
together and likewise their
families. We are here to have
a good time and catch up with
each other. I think it is very
important to have that social
belonging."
For information about the
Nassau Challenger Bowling
League call Willaford at 261-
3136.

More than books



for Yulee librarian


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
School librarians are
now referred to as media
specialists, and in Jennifer
Bozeman's case, the title
fits.
"Aside from ordering
and cataloging
books/videos, I am also the
administrator for the major-
ity of the software pro-
grams utilized at our
school," said Bozeman.
The library offers a vari-
ety of electronics for stu-
dents including computers,
listening stations, and even
PlayStations where the kids
can play language arts,
math, science and reading-
related video games.
"I'd love to find a grant
for e-readers or iPads to
use in the library," said
Bozeman. There is one
iPad that travels through
the fourth-grade classes.
The busy media special-
ist also schedules author
visits, runs book fairs and
keeps track of Accelerated
Readers to reward them at
the end of each nine-week
term and at the end of the
school year.
As if all this weren't
enough, she's also in
charge of textbooks.
"It's a lot of work. There
is a misconception that
librarians simply check
books in and out or read all
day, but the truth is we
have to be aware of laws
governing intellectual free-
dom and copyright, be up
to date with technology and
know what the children
like."
Before becoming the
librarian, Bozeman taught
classes at YES. Her hus-
band, Joshua, teaches fifth
grade at the school.
A native of London in
Ontario, Canada, Bozeman
came to Jacksonville in
2001 to attend UNF for
both her bachelor's and
master's degrees.

scores 6; Hornets win 42-6


Derrick Henry won the
showdown of the top two run-
ning backs in the state Friday
night. Glades Day and run-
ning back KelvirT:,.11.. 1 ii.
ed Yulee for the matchup,
which was televised national-
ly by ESPN and attended by
6,000.
Henry rushed 35 times for
367 yards and scored all six of
Yulee's touchdowns in a 42-6
thrashing of the Glades Day
Gators.
"Glades Day got after us
good in the first quarter, real-
ly most of the night," said
Bobby Ramsay, head football
coach at Yulee High School.
"I think we had players step
up around Derrick where
Glades didn't around their
guy.
Taylor had 223 yards and
scored the Gators' lone touch-
down.
"As far as the defense
goes, we knew that Taylor
would get yards," Ramsay
said. "He's too talented not to.
A lot of times when people
play backs like Derrick and
Kelvin they say keep him
under 100. That's just not
realistic. They're going to get
100 yards.
S"The biggest thing is to
deny the long runs. Those get
you beat. I thought the
defense did a great job of set-
ting the edge. The defensive
staff did a great job of teach-
ing the concepts during the
week. Plus the tackling i:l.
pretty good.
"But again they hit us hard
early and he is a special play-
er. Glades Day was a well
coached team on both sides."
It was a packed house-with
plenty of football royalty on
the sideline with Taylor's
father, former Gator and
Jaguar Fred Tayloraattending
the game along with Donovan
Darius and Gator Coach Will
Muschamp; Kelvin Taylor has
committed to Florida.
"It was definitely wild
when you come out at 6:30,
an hour and a half before
kickoff, and the place is
packed," Ramsay said. "I did-
n't recognize it almost with'
the set-up. The players really
handled the atmosphere
well."
Dalton Bradley completed
five of seven passes for 57
yards. Jason Ray rushed four
times for 20 yards and Tristyn
Bennett reered in three recep-
tions for 57 yards.
Brycen Gaghon had six
solo tackles, two assists, a
quarterback sack and a
forced fumble; Marlon
Register seven solo, one
assist, one sack; Nick Parker
two solo, two assists; Zane
Cruz four solo, two assists;
Chris Murdock four solo, two

three assists; Ray one solo,

Yulee hosts Fernandina
Beach Friday.
"We.start district this week
and play a county rival,"
Ramsay said. "It's always
tough to play Fernandina
Beach. Coach Hlodge has
them playing well and physi-
cal on both sides. They have


some really talented backs
and the team plays really
hard.
"We have a lot to prepare
for-and you can tell they are
playing better and better each
week. It should be a great
game.
Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

Friday night, the Yulee High


School gym filled.with stu-
dents and faculty as senior
Derrick Henry announced his
verbal commitment to
Alabama.
"I think Derrick was ready
for the whole thing to be
over," Ramsay said. "He was
very thorough in making his
choice, looking into what was
important to him.


"'He had some great places
to pick from. Tennessee and
Georgia have great coaches
who did a great job recruiting
him. I think he just felt like he
fit at Alabama with the players
the best.
"He knows that there's a
lot of competition there, but
sometimes the best choice
and the most challenging one


are the same.
"It was nice to reflect on
his career, while at the same
time be excited for his future.
I think he is a great fit for
Alabama as a person and play-
er."
Henry, who committed
early to Georgia, reopened
his recruiting over the sum-
mer.

BETI I JONES

Pirates. Running backs Will


Mitchell, Logan and Cha Chi
Moses combined for' 127
yards on 19 touches.
The Pirates hit the road
Friday, traveling to Yulee to
take on Derrick Henry and
the Hornets.
"I think we are going to
line up with 15.people on
defense, see if they call it,"
Hodge said.
Chick-fil-A is sponsoring
the "Battle of the Bridge

"There is a great mix of tennis players in
this year's league," said Michele Maharaj of
Maharaj Tennis. "Teams are comprised of
family members with their spouses, sib-
lings and children, former rivals, BFFs,
high schoolers, senior citizens, beginners \
to advanced players. The energy and enthu-
siasm surrounding the league is so much
fun to watch. Spectators as well as team
members are encouraged to cheer for their .
teams in a friendly yet competitive atmos- .
here. It is a pretty neat thing to have so
much community involvement in an activity
that promotes fun, fitness and fellowship with a healthy dose of competition." Play
continues through Oct. 19 to determine which teams will make it into the Final Four
tournament playoff. Above, Nicola Nichols and Cyndee Robertson share a bench

exhilarating comeback victory. The 4-point deficit matches the greatest
comeback in Ryder Cup history, equalling the feat pulled off by the US in
1999. Tiger Woods, playing in the final match, missed a 4-footer for par,
then conceded the par putt to Francesco Molinari, which halved the'match
and gave Europe the outright victory.


Rory Mdlroy needed a police
Y" ,^ escort to make it to the first tee
\"L-^ on time Sunday after mixing up
\his time zones. He made it with
10 minutes to spare, giving him just enough time
to scarf down an energy bar, take a few strokes
on the putting green and hustle to the tee. "I've
never been so wonied driving to the golf course
before," Mcllroy said. "Luckily there was a state
trooper who gave me the escort to here. If it
wasn't for him, I wouldn't have got here in time."
Mcllroy was reading the Ryder Cup tee times on
his phone and saw that he and Bradley were
teeing off at 12:25 p.m. That was Eastern time.
Medinah Country Club, outside Chicago, is in the
Central time zone.


A common problem that young golfers have is that they "sky" a lot of drives
That they hit. The most common tendency for the average golfer is to swing
downward harder than normal with their driver, allowing the club to get under
the ball more than necessary and pop-up their drives. Our tip for the week is
to actually tee their ball up higher than normal to help prevent these pop-ups.
Teeing their ball higher gives an optical illusion that they will need to swing
more level to make better contact with the ball. Therefore, when they are thinking about
a more level swing each time they want to hit a drive, it is more likely that success will
occur on a more consistent basis.

Chelsea Marine holds red snapper tourney


T lie National Oceanic
an(I Atmospheric
Administration
recently held( two
long weekends of red snapper
fishing for both recreational
and commercial fishermen.
. The recreational season dates
were Sept. 14-16 and Sept. 21-
23. Recreational fishermen
were allowed to keep one red
snapper per day with no size
limits.
Researchers with the
Florida Fish
and Wildlife
Conservation
Commission
S ".. set up drop-
off locations
for red snap-
per cplrcarcass-
res. Drop-off
stations
OUTDOORS included
Chelsea
Marine
TerryLacoss Supply and
the Fernandina Harbor
Marina.
The survey collected bio-
logical samples from red
snapper carcasses, ultimately
providing valuable data about
the red snapper fishery.
Fisheries i. l t i- will use'
this information in future pop-
ulation assessments.
When anglers catch a
tagged red snapper, FWC
researchers ask that they
report it to the Angler Tag
Return Hotline (1-800-367-
41461). When calling the hot-
line. anglers should indicate
the species, tag number, date
and time of capture, catch
location, fish length, type of
bait used and whether the
fish was kept or released. If
the fish is released, the .
angler is asked to leave the
tag in place to help with
future data collection.
"We had staff from the
Florida Wildlife Commission
on hand when Kenny
Crawford weighed in his win-
ning two red snapper,"
Chelsea Marine's Jack Coker
said. "The FWC cut the ear
bone from all of the red snap-
per carcasses that we had col-
lected from our red snapper
'fishermen."
The car bone of a fish
gives biologists valuable
information of the fish,
including its age.
During the first weekend
of the special red snapper
season, the winds were blow-
ing hard from the north and
few fishermen ventured off-
shore. However, during the
final long weekend, several
deep-sea boats took advan-
tage of NOAA's special open
recLsnapper season,
"We fished at the
Brunswick Live Bottom,"
Capt. Greg Simmons said.
"We did not have a problem
with catching a limit of big
red snapper. I hope these
results will encourage NOAA
to open up seasons for red
snapper along the South
Atlantic."
"Red snapper fishing was
excellent at the Brunswick
Live Bottom," Capt. Ryan
Rodeffer said. "Everywhere
we dropped our red snapper
baits, we caught red snapper
weighing to almost 20
pounds."
David Smith fished some
53 miles offshore and report-
ed excellent red snapper fish-
ing as well.
"I have never experienced
red snapper fishing like this
during my lifetime," Smith
said. "After dropping our
baits down to the bottom and
hooking a red snapper, an
entire school of red snapper
followed hooked fish to the

New book
The second edition of the
blockbuster book, Life
According to Dad, is being

Fernandina Beach resi-
dent Dr. John C. Elliott
authored the book a collec-
tion .of his father's hilarious
misadven-
tures during
World War



ily when the
war was
finally over.
'It has garnered rave reviews
from all quarters, with the
BBC in London saying the
stories were both funny and
touching.
From his humble begin-
nings in 1916 Corpus Christi,
Texas, the author's father,
Henry H. Elliott Jr., went on
to graduate from the United
States Naval Academy in
Annapolis, Maryland in 1939
and then became a spy for
the Office of Strategic
Services (OSS) during World
War II. Following the end of
the war, he continued to
work Behind the scenes for
the newly formed Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA),
but for public consumption
was employed by Pan
American World Airways. He
remained a spy all through
the Korean War, but resigned
in 1953. He stayed on with
Pan American., however, and
his work took his family to
the four corners of the globe.

Hi! My name is I.el.iani. I
ain a 4-yea;r-old female black
andi brown ltabby. My hair is a
little fully but not too much.
As you can see from my face,
I wasn't really prepared for
my close-up! I am up-to-date
on all my boosters and am
free of kitty diseases. Being a
little older, you don't have to
worry about the kitten stage
with me. I just mostly want to
lie around and be petted. I
would make a wonderful addi-
tion to your hope and family.
Please come see me for your-
self and you will see. I can be
found at Nassau County
Animal Services, 86078

Cats Angels 5th Annual


Dory and Shelby are two
sweet girls who lived in a lov-
ing home for 5 years. Their
owner took very good care of
them but had to give them up
because of a foreclosure. They
are very attached to each
other and need to be adopted
together. Dory is a Welsh
Corgi mix, while Shelby is a
Black Mouth Cur mix. They
are both housetrained, walk
well on their leashes and are
obedient and loving. Shelby
especially is very affectionate,
and leans in on you for as
much love as she can get.
Dory is a sweetheart too.
Many dog owners prefer to
have two dogs rather than one
- they aren't lonely when
you're out, and they can enter-
tain each other when you're
busy. With Dory and Shelby
you have two dogs that get
along together wonderfully.
(They should be the only dogs
in the home, however.) Both
of them are perfectly sized to
be house dogs, too. They will
come to you with complete
medical records. Here's your
chance to make a huge differ-
ence for two sweet pets who
could lrelly use a friend right
now. And, to thank you for
your kindness, we'll reduce
the adoption fee when you
take them home together.
Angelia is our little angel!
