Council



on Aging



director



named
GARRETT PELICAN .
News-Leader
Janice Ancrum has been named
the new executive director for the
Nassau County Council on Aging,
COA Board President Fran Shea said
Monday. Ancrum succeeds Tom
Moss, who left the job two weeks ago.
The board planned to introduce
Ancrum to the
Fernandina Beach
City Commission
at Tuesday's meet-
ing.
Shea said
Ancrum, a
Fernandina Beach
native, was select-
Ancrum ed for her depth of
experience and,
extensive connec-
tions within the community..
"(Ancrum's) very well known in our,
community by our public officials for
her hard work and positive communi-
ty service," she said.
She replaces Moss, whom the
council parted ways with Nov. 2.
Officials have since declined to com-
ment on Moss's departure, but are
looking instead to the organization's
future.
Prior to her hiring, Ancrum, a grad-
uate of Fernandina Beach High School
and the University of Florida, served
as the chief of operations at
Community Connections of
Jacksonville, managing as many as 201
programs and an annual budget of
nearly $7 million.
"This is a great agency, it's a great

"We have

Beach and Hilliard, sponsors Meals
on Wheels and provides the county's
only public transportation service.
In her new role, Ancrum faces clear
challenges: fundraising for the coun-
cil's capital campaign and securing the
deed from the Nassau County
Commission to a property on 14th
Street that the council currently use<,
for its transportation hub and wants to
use as collateral in a bank loan to fund
the construction of its new senior cen-
ter, and assuring the financial stability
of the council's programs.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
According to organizers, the.2013
Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival
Pirate Parade will be held at 1:30 p.m.
Saturday, April 27 six days before
the official start of the Shrimp Festival.
The Pirate Parade, sponsored by
Residence Inn of Fernandina Beach,
will befollowed by a 50th anniversary
party in Central Park on Atlantic
Avenue, to which all are invited.
,In years past, the parade has tradi-
tionally been held at 6 p.m. the
Thursday before the festival begins
the next day.
Next year marks the 50th anniver-
sary of the festival, which is being
billed as "The Year of the Golden
Shrimp." The festival runs as usual
nextyear on the first weekend in May
- from Friday, May 3, to Sunday, May
5.
According to Shrimp Festival
Executive Director Sandy Price, the
reason for the change is because of the
festival's "golden" anniversary and
because organizers would like to try
spreading special activities into two
weekends and throughout the week
before the festival.
"We're hoping to get a wine and
cheese event during the week and also
get the local restaurants involved with
their dishes," Price said. An evening
concert on the downtown waterfront
may also be held on Thursday when
the Pirate Paiade usually happens,
Price said.

Price said. She added that more activ-
ities during the week before the festi-
val might also benefit the downtown.
Price said the details for the
anniversary party in Central Park have
yet to be determined, but that volun-
teers are still needed to help with plan-
ning the event. Interested citizens can
email volunteer@shrimpfestival.com
to get involved.
The Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp
Festival began in 1963 as a Blessing of
the Fleet for the kickoffofthe shrimp-
ing season and a race between local
shrimp trawlers. The start and finish
of the boat races was at the glass
"tepee" that once stood where Brett's
Waterway Cafe is now located.
The festival now attracts more than
100,000 visitors over its three days of

Yulee High School senior
running back Derrick
Henry accepted a resolu-
tion from the Nassau

Monday recognizing the
Alabama-bound recruit for
capturing the national high
school rushing record
held since 1953. Henry,
who has more than
11,600 yards and count-

without my coaches and
teammates. I'm just glad I
can share that record."

Man dies


in wreck

GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader
A 50-ycar-old Fernandina
Beach man was killed when
his Chevrolet pickup rolled
over near Barnwell Road and
A1A early Saturday morning,.
according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Troopers said a Chevy
Silverado driven by Todd Alan
Hopkins of Fernandina Beach
was headed north on
Barnwell Road about 2:30
a.m. when it ran off the road
onto the right shoulder before
veering back across the lanes
and into a ditch, where it
turned over several times.
Hopkins, 50, was pro-
nounced dead at the scene,
according to a traffic report.
He was not wearing a seat-
belt, the report said. Troopers
said there were no passen-
gers involved and alcohol did
not play a role in the wreck.
Hopkins, manager of oper-
ational excellence at
RockTenn in' Fernandina
Beach, is survived by his wife
of 25 years, Cheryl Edwards
Hopkins, and their daughters
Kayla, Alysa and Gracie,
among other family members
and friends.

HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
Things were buzzing Friday
at Central Park as a large crowd
gathered to watch as the eight
massive Anheuser-Busch geld-
ings were groomed, harnessed
and hitched for their march to
the Palace Saloon.
Brittny Corrigan brushed
each horse and Will Kurtz
applied baby powder to the
Feathers on their socks.
"We want them to look their
best!" said Corrigan.
The horses travel in three
large tractor-trailers with groom-
ers, trainers and supervisor of
the East Coast Hitch, Eric Soto.
Led by a police escort, the
magnificent horses drew their
famous red Budweiser beer
wagon from the park to Centre
Street where people lined the
streets waiting for a glimpse of
the beautiful Clydesdales.
"There are three traveling
hitches," explained Soto. "With
10 horses in each hitch, the
horses alternate out and eight
are used to pull the wagon."


Soto said the horses have
been a Budweiser trademark
since 1933 when August Busch
,Jr. and brother Adolphus sur-
prised their father with a gift of
a six-horse hitch to deliver the
first wagon of beer following the
repeal of Prohibition.
The relationship between
Budweiser and the Palace
Saloon also goes back a long
way, said Soto.
'The founder of Anheuser-
Busch, Adolphus Busch came
over on the same ship with the
original owner of the Palace
Saloon, Louis Hirth."
When Hirth was set to open
the bar, he got in' touch with his'
friend who reportedly traveled
From St. Louis, Mo., to help him
design the now famous Palace
Saloon bar, at the corner of
Centre and North Second
streets.
For details on the Clydes-
dales, visit anheuser-busch.com.

er/Palace Saloon connection

Simply shocking. That's one-way to describe
what one Nassau County schoolboy accom-
plished on the football field this season.
Derrick "Shocka" Henry rewrote the nation-
al record books this week in rushing
yardage for a high school career. Henry broke
a record that has stood since the early 1950s
when he eclipsed more than 11,000 yards as a
running back for the Yulee High School football
team.
Henry is a once-in-a-lifetime athlete who has
set a new standard here and around the coun-
try. Henry is committed to'attend Alabama and
play football next fall. But he and his Yulee
teammates are hardly finished this year they
are still alive in the Florida high school playoffs.
Maybe they'll shock the football scene again
with a state title. It wouldn't be the most shock-
ing thing they have done so far this year.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


New sheriffs message
As I get ready to assume the
important role of Nassau County
Sheriff, I want to express my sin-
cerest thanks to the citizens of
Nassau County for giving me this
wonderful opportunity to serve our
community. I am truly humbled by
your support.
I also -especially want to state
openly to all of the current employ-
ees of the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office that I look forward to work-
ing with each of you over the next
four years. Having worked in law
enforcement for the past 35 years,
I personally identify with your work
demands and responsibilities. I
already know many of you and
those who I don't, I look forward to
getting to know you. I can certain-
ly understand that having someone
new come in from outside the
department and assume the helm of
the office, there have got to be some
concerns and anxiety among you. I
want to assure each of you that I
am committed to being fair, consis-
tent and above-board in our working
relationship. I promise that we will
have open and-frank communica-
tions to address any problems or
issues you might have. My goal is to
improve conditions for all employ-
ees. That is, to create an environ-
ment where employees can do their
job efficiently, effectively and most
of all safely. I believe it is the role of
the sheriff to ensure that officers are
led by qualified leaders who, can
inspire and lead by example to
ensure a professional work place.
As we work together on the
same team, I know that the citizens
of Nassau County will be proud of
our accomplishments: It is my hope
that upon completion of my serv-
ice in this office, we will have the
best-trained and equipped law
enforcement professionals in
Northeast Florida. We will have
reduced the impact that illegal drug
use has on our community and we
will have created a strong relation-
ship between the law enforcement
community and the citizens of the
county. With all of us working
together we will serve the citizens
of Nassau County with integrity,
professionalism and pride as we
continue to make Nassau County a
'great place to live, work and raise a
family.
Bill Leeper
Nassau County Sheriff-Elect

Thanksgivng"
I do hereby charge the citizens
of the United States of America with
the following Resolution:
To give thanks and to rededi-
"canr, ur~t.l-\'ef' G'ld," Family and
Country. As another year is almost
in the history books we are remind-
ed of the many things that have
blessed us yet again. We are remind-
ed of Thanksgivings past and the
blessings bestowed upon us by God
whose hand guides us in our many
endeavors.
We have the freedoms we enjoy
because we as a people have fought
for and continue to defend our coun-
try and our way of life,. We have
.blended integrity, gratitude and
pride into our very fiber: These
intangible gifts are ours to have,
protect and enjoy.
The firmness of our resolve has
been tested from time to time. Let
us never forget the sacrifices made
by our forefathers and which sacri-
fices are being made daily as we
pray for peace. Freedom is not free.
and thanks be to Our God in
Heaven we have patriots who have
written checks made payable to the
SUnited States of America up to and
including their lives.
We are generous, tolerant peo-
ple. We as a country are reminded
daily of the selfless acts of those
who lend a hand when a neighbor is
in need and protect those who can-
;not protect themselves. Peace will
: stand and be ours forever if we con-
tinue to remind ourselves what has
made America the greatest nation
on this planet As we celebrate this
time of Thanksgiving we must
remember, from God comes these
blessings. I
While we are currently in a bat- ,
tie not only being fought on the bat-.
tlefield.but in a world which has fall-
en to desperate times both.
economically and morally as we
stand up for freedom and give hope.
to other peoples of the world who
are fighting desperately just to exist.
In this time of thanks we must take
time to bless the soldiers who have
borne the battle against people- vho
do not understand us, our princi-
ples, our beliefs and who, given the
chance, would not hesitate to do us
harm.
In 1621, the Plymouth colonists
and Wampanoag Indians shared an
autumn harvest feast that is


acknowledged today as one of the
first.Thanksgiving celebrations in
the colonies. For more than two
centuries, days of thanksgiving were
celebrated by individual colonies
and states. It wasn't until 1863, in the
midst of the Civil War, that
President Abraham Lincoln pro-
claimed a national Thanksgiving
Day to be held each November.
Abraham Lincoln by proclama-
tion on Oct. 3, 1863, in part said "I
invite my fellow-citizens in every
part of the United States, and also
those who are at sea and those who
are sojourning in foreign lands, to


JOHN DARKOW/COLUMBIA (MO.) DAILY TRIBUNE


set apart and observe the last
Thursday of November as a Day of
Thanksgiving and Praise to our
beneficent Father who dwelleth in
the heavens. We must also implore,
for Divine purposes, the full enjoy-
ment of peace, harmony, tranquili-
ty, and union."
At a time when we prepare to
celebrate another blessed Day of
Thanksgiving I ask that this Nation
Come Together in spirit and deter-
mination as we continue to stand
against extremism and unjust
actions being spread like a cancer.
The tyrants of this world quash the
breath of freedom with intolerance,
and ignorance. Keeping their people
under harsh rule and denying the
inalienable rights bestowed on us by
our creator. We have endured many
hardships but remain a strong and
united people with a common
respect.
Our beloved country has grown
steadily not only in numbers of peo-
ple but in education, diversity and
love for our fellow Americans.
Have a safe and Happy
Thanksgiving and may God contin-
ue to bestow his gifts of harmony
and tolerance on us which make
this land the shining light for
oppressed people over the globe.

SSavinganimals ;.
SNassau County Animal Services
has launched several programs, in
an effort to save more animals.
We recently launched a Barn Cat
program that targets feral cats in
Nassau County. This program offers
free feral cats to residents of Nassaq
County. The cats are spayed or
neutered and receive a rabies shot'
prior to being released to citizens of
the county. The program targets
the euthanasia here in Nassau
County and has helped us to reduce
our euthanasia rate by 13 percent
this year.
Next we have worked, with
potential adopters of our heartworm
positive dogs, assisting them by
reducing adoption costs when they
sign up for a heartworm positive
dog. We have had several success
stories already from this program
with dogs going to Maryland,
Mississippi and Missouri.
Our next success story comes
from Lakeland SPCA where they
have taken several of our fracture
cases and given them new life with
orthopedic surgery dogs, that nor-
mally would be put down due to
lack of funding for expensive sur-
geries;
And then we have partnered
with rescue groups to move (777)
adoptable dogs and cats this year
alone to other facilities within the
state. Nassau County is now on the
right track to saving more lives.
We have also partnered with
PetSmart Charities on a two-year
$,'$180,000 grant that to date has
neutered and spayed some 2,000
animals in Nassau County.
Our vision moving into 2013 is to
continue to reduce euthanasia,
increase adoptions and transfers
and to develop a fund to continue to
spay and neuter here in Nassau
County. We will need sponsors to
help fund the continuation of the
spay and neuter program.
If you or your company are will-

Florida again looks ill prepared
and somewhat backwards because
it cannot run a fair and efficient elec-
tion. I have a suggestion. Why don't
we loan the state Vicki Cannon. As
a Democratic Party leader I would
like to say Nassau County was run
very professionally.
I had to work with (Nassau
County Supervisor of Elections)
Vicki Cannon and her staff on a reg-
ular basis and they were courteous,


professional and efficient. This was
evident in how they worked on vote
by mail, early voting and on Election
Day. Not to say there were not
'issues, but they were addressed
consistently and efficiently.
Vicki saw to it we had the appro-
priate equipment and enough of it.
When lines formed during early vot-
ing, extra voting bdoths were set
up. Also, staff was well trained and
most did a great job.
During vote by mail, one young
man printed instead of signing his
name on the envelope and his ballot
was rejected. Having requested and
received information on signature
rejections, we notified him of the
issue. Vicki's office had already
done so. He requested and received
another ballot and voted success-
fully.
On election night, results of early
voting and vote by mail were post-
ed a few minutes after 7 p.m. By
the time the presidential election
was called in Ohio, we had results
in Nassau with the exception of pro-
visional ballots. The Canvassing
Board met on Thursday and they
were reviewed and counted. The
Democratic Party member on the
board said that all went smoothly
there.
We are a small county and issues
in larger counties are magnified.
The state needs to allow enough
time, equipment and well trained
'siff i. let all qualified, voters haye
thell say without standing in line
for hours.
Wquld Nassau County residents
* (who have been well served) stand
for hours to vote? I have my doubts.
' Three of the first 10 voters in Yulee
left because they were not served
fast enough. They had a plane to
catch. Thatwas a voter problem,
not an administration problem.
Voters also have a responsibility to
plan ahead and put forethought into
the voting process.
Carla Voisard

Having watched President
Obama's first'remarks and his press
conference after his election, it is.
apparent.he has misinterpreted his
victory as a mandate for his tax and
spending plan. It is no surprise that
the president has drawn the wrong
conclusions from the results, of
this election. It is still "my way I
won."
A careful review of his slim
majority reveals that the "takers"
outvoted the "builders" once again.
The media for most of his high vic-
tory segments of the population is,
unfortunately, network TV and
social media where there were
deliberate attempts to boost the
President while attacking a man of
proven wisdom, character, and
background. If you can't really com-
prehend the written word, TV is
your guide how sad.
Consider that the greatest num-
ber, by far, of abortions and out-of-
wedlock births are in the minority
group that supported the "give me
more" Obamapolicies. Consider
that the two major minority groups
have a far higher rate of functional
illiteracy than the overall popula-
tion. Consider that the many of the
youth component of the population
want the fruits of hard work but
avoid the path that produces those
fruits. Consider the breakdown of
the female vote. Women who'are
married and raising a family or in
their elder years helping their chil-
dren want a growing economy with
a good job, not free contraceptives
and free abortions.
President Obama ran a hate cam-
paign targeted at creating doubts
about Gov. Mitt Romney. As con-
sistent with the man's character,
Romney attacked only the presi-
dent's failed promises and ineffec-
tive programs. Unlike the president,
Romney never called the president
a liar with no practical experience.
Chicago-brand politics worked
again, but never consider the result
a mandate,to continue the destruc-
tive policies of the president's first
term.
Totally ignored in the media was
Gov. Romney's statement that his


version of a health care overhaul
would preserve the ability of those
with pre-existing conditions to
obtain coverage. Compromise is
essential, but unconditional sur-
render to destructive policies is not
a valid answer.
Paul Dtmvall
Amelia Island

When the writer of "Why I voted
for Obama" spoke, she was speak-
ing from her first-hand; real expe-
rience. Her critic accuses her of
being "uninformed, misinformed
and/or just plain ignorant." Isn't
that a bit harsh from someone who
bases his information on the state-
ments of a politician before he is
elected? Actions still speak louder
than words unless it's during a polit-
ical campaign.
Jo Merman

Pink pinkpink
Mark Twain once. said,
"Everybody talks about the weath-
er, but nobody does anything about
it."
This famous quote came to mind.
during the month of October, when
everyone nationwide was asked to
do something about breast cancer-
that is, early detection of this hor-
rible disease.
Out came the pink. Pink towels.
pink scarves, pink hats' pink h'-: S,
pink shirts, pink baseball caps, pink
balloons, pink streamers, pink, pink,
pink.
Plus dollars, dollars, dollars.
Billions of dollars toward that main
goal -.early detection.
My nagging reply to all this,
"What about early prevention of
breast cancer and other cancers?"
SEarly prevention, as in real, sim-
ple, natural nutrition, beginning with
natural foods and that natural drink
(the only drink God ever provided
for us) called water.
Plus, large amounts of food sup-
plements, providing the 51 nutri-
ents our bodies need daily.
For those who fear taking too
many vitamins, as we are often
warned to fear by the American
Medical Association (AMA) and the
Federal Drug Administration
(FDA), it's important to note a cou-
ple of facts.
One, the U.S. Department of
Agriculture's continuing research
and survey of food intakes by indi-
viduals declares that the "majority of
Americans do not consume enough
essential vitamins.and minerals in
their daily diets, thus contributing to
diseases, such as cancer."
Two, a recent 10-year report of
the American Association of Poison
Control Center revealed that no one
has died from taking food supple-
ments. In other words, the number
of deaths reported in the past 10
years is zero.
With that good news in mind,
everyone should follow the advice
of the Nike commercial and just do
it!
Take large to mega-amounts of
food supplements once or twice or
more a day, disregarding the
Required Daily Amount, RDA,
(Really Dumb Amount).
Those of us who follow the path
of health, called good nutrition, have
hope.
We hope that someday soon our
doctors will also become so nutri-
tior minded that they will teach
nutrition in their offices and waiting
rooms, through CDs and DVDs,
oral and written tests, answering
questions, encouraging their
patients to go to the nearest health
food store, drug store, big-box store,
order from vitamin catalogs or go
online for the best food supplements
available.
We hope that this approach to
natural medicine will result in
patients becoming so glowing
'healthy, energetic and free of ill-
nesses, including cancer, that they
will go to their doctors just to learn
more about nutrition.
Will our hopes become realities?
Ask your doctor?

Attorney requests help for her client


Story one: From Diane, Attorney at Law.
Before 1 launch into an explanation of the
problem I would like your organization to take a
look at, I must say the idea behind Seniors vs.
Crime Project is an absolutely fabulous one! As
a commissioner for the Utopia County
Commission on Aging & Adult Services
(UCCAAS), Commissioner of the Triad Task
Force (action arm of the UCCAAS) and Executive
Director of Building Bridges (Elder Abuse
Prevention Program) I would like to find out
more about your program and possibly bring
this idea to the Attorney General's attention in our
own state of.California. If you have any addition-
al literature/information you can send me, I
would greatly appreciate it. Now, to get on with
the business at hand!
I am trying to help an elderly lady in her eight-
ies with a consumer complaint issue. I gave my
name for the purposes of contact information as
given above, but the approximate age and the gen-
der are of the client I am trying to assist. Client
and her husband owned a timeshare in Florida-
at Fair vacation resorts at my favorite City FL
30010. Husband has since died of Alzheimer's dis-
ease. Client cannot afford fees for timeshare, so
wanted to sell it. She paid the mortgage off,
receiving the debt-securing instrument marked
"paid" and the appropriate recorded Satisfaction
of Mortgage from the title department of
Wecanbetrusted Communities, Inc. Client sub-
sequently paid two different realtors upfront fees
of $500 and $600 to sell the timeshare, but noth-
'ing came of it other than she lost the money and
the timeshare was not sold. Twice client (through
her attorney) attempted to quitclaim the time-
share back to Fairvacationresorts at the direc-
tion of Vice President Michael Gough and
Collection Manager Pete Postlethwaite.' Client
even, sent $500 at Ms. Gough's and Mr.
Postlethwaite's request for filing fees. The $500
was eventually returned without explanation, but
only after numerous demands were made for its
return when no copies were forthcoming of any
recorded quitclaim deed-or release.
Upon further investigation, it was discovered


SENIORS
vs.CRIME

David
Blacklock


Fair vacationresorts pledged all
its mortgage payments from
timeshare owners as collateral
for a loan obtained from Wecan-
betrusted Financial Corp. We
suspect Wecanbetrusted 's lien
prevented prospective pur-
chasers from buying client's
timeshare because it created
a cloud on her title, unbe-
knownst to our client. Because
our client paid off her mort-
gage, there should no longer be
any lien against the timeshare
in question. So far, neither
Wecanbetrusted nor
Fairvacationresorts seem will-


,ing to remove the lien on this timeshare.
Wecanbetrusted insists removal must be by the
borrower, and the borrower Fairvacationresorts
- doesn't seem willing to do much of anything to
resolve our client's complaint.
. Meanwhile, client is still being billed for
monthly fees for a timeshare she no longer owns
- even though she quitclaimed the property on
two different occasions all at a considerable
loss to her of $13,700 (I believe that is the exact
figure for which she purchased the timeshare).
We request your assistance in 1) confirming a
recordation of the quitclaim Deed and release, 2)
resolving that any and all-additional charges
billed to client be cancelled forever, as set forth
in said Release. Client is being billed by collection
agency for monthly fees for timeshare she no
longer owns but quitclaimed, back to
Fairvacationresorts at a total loss because of
their actions (in obtaining the loan, pledging my
client's mortgage as part of the collateral without
her knowledge or consent)/inaction (refusal to
remove lien even though client paid off her mort-
gage). Client also lost "up front" fees paid to two
different realtors to sell the timeshare, yet it
never sold. Dollar loss so far, $14,800. Learned of
you through the Florida Attorney General web-
site.
Story two: A phone call.from (321) 153-0006


was received by my elderly parents. The man
spoke with a heavy foreign accent and identified
himself as a representative from Sprint. He asked
for and received personal information. As soon as
he got the information, he told them they were too
old for his "offer." He then asked if they had chil-
dren living with them or if they lived alone. After
my parents told me of the call, I immediately
looked up the number on the Internet and dis-
covered that numerous fraud calls are being
made from it My purpose in writing you is to find
out why the authorities in Florida don't shut this
down. Thank you, and I sincerely hope that action
will be taken to put an end to this scam.
Story three: I drove my car to a shop for an
estimate; when I was to take it home, they took
it apart I had to tow it with parts on the ground
or get it done there. I was forced to pay $2,800 to
them, and another $1,500 to Mercedes Benz
where my car was towed by them, and plus rental
car fees for over a month. It cost us about $5,000,
an expense that took a lot from us, especially on
our Social Security disability income. They were


charging us $35 a day until we take out our car,
that's how they forced us to pay the $2,800 even
if they did not fix my car. I drove my car in to their
shop, and they towed it to Mercedes Benz!
Isn't that odd? They have to be set up for
investigative report for their modus operandi to
be exposed to the public. They definitely
scammed us! Please help us!

Invasive species


First it was the roof rats.
Bucko and I began to hear
strange skittering sounds
from our attic and our cat
Dumela started spending her
nights awake roaming the
house and staring at the ceil-
ing in strange locations. Rats
in our belfry. Oh no.
Roof rats are an exotic
invasive species well adapted
to suburban living. But they
carry diseases that can infect
us think bubonic plague -
and they can chew on electri-
cal wires and cause house
fires. We like animals, but rats
in our attic, no way. Hundreds
of dollars later, our attic is
now rat free. An exterminator
inspected our roof, patched
up a few holes the rats had
chewed under the eaves for
access and repeatedly set
traps in our attic. At first,
when the holes were blocked
off, some enterprising smaller
rats managed to chew their
way out again. The holes
were blocked off again more
securely and eventually a sin-
gle large (and very expen-
sive) rat was killed and
removed.
Yes, killed. Although I am
fond of domestic pet rats.and
wild pack rats and other
rodents, invasive house rats
in our home crosses some
line. They have to go by what-
ever means works.
But then the rabbits
showed up. It was early fall,
the right time for me to plant
my vegetable garden. Finally
I was home during planting
season and I was eager to',:, '
make up for my absence -.
and no veggie garden last
spring. I happily worked more
amendments into my raised
beds, and planted lettuce,
spinach, beets and parsnips..,
Basically, it was all rabbit
food. One day I was admiring
the small shoots coming up
from the seeds, and the next
day they were gone, all gone,
nibbled down to the ground.
About that time Bucko report-
ed that he saw a rabbit near
his shed, coming from a hole
we had thought was an
armadillo burrow. Oh no.
Rabbits.
But a rabbit is a wild native
animal and they belong here
too. Besides, they are cute.
Live and let live. Soon Bucko
installed'a rabbit-proof fence
isolating my garden and I
replanted. My lettuce is doing
fine, I'm happRy,Jteport. But
'then the rabbit moved else-


where. I had
also planted
a side garden
with sweet
peas forwin-
S tertime bou-
quets. Did
you know
that rabbits
like sweet
WILD pea sprouts?
WAYS I didn't but I
do now.
When these
Pat too got nib-
Foster-Turley bled to the
ground we
changed our strategy. Bucko
set up a Hav-a-Heart rabbit
trap, baited with apples and
carrots. And for good meas-
ure I spread "rabbit repellent"
all around my flower garden
and planted more peas.
Although Bucko didn't
catch a rabbit, he did snag
one poor opossum that also
had a taste for apples. We
immediately released this
harmless native back into our
yard again. And, maybe the
repellent worked since the
rext generation of pea plants
is alive and growing and no
rabbits have been seen in our
yard in recent times. But this
Rabbit business was also not
cheap. Rabbit fence, rabbit
repellent, rabbit trap and
replNcement seeds, etc.,
maybe another $200. I sure
hope I harvest a lot of lettuce
and sweet pea flowers!
.We just about had the rab-
bit problem squared away
i when the next invasion hap-
pened. For years Bucko has'
been replenishing our bird
feeders with black sunflower
seeds and millet for the cardi-
nals, chickadees, and other
birds that visit. The baffles
over the hanging feeder and
the aluminum tube.on the
feeder pole have for years.
successfully,deterred the
squirrels. But now the sun-
flower seeds are disappearing
overnight, every night.
'One night with our win-
dows open we heard a coih-
motion and, turning on the
outdoor spotlights we sur-
prised a large raccoon that
had managed to climb up over
the aluminum baffle to reach
the feeder. Oh no, raccoons!
The next day Bucko raised
the baffle beyond the rac-
coon's reach.And the next
night we heard another com-
motion. Thi r6imI-n a -maller

sunflower seeds in this loca-
tion instead. Now Bucko is
figuring out how to modify
this feeder too.
And the baltls ,ontinflt
Just when we get one animal
invasion under control the
next skirmish begins. It's a
mixed blessing living with
woods behind'bur yard, but
I've got to say it makes life
interesting. Now that the rats
and rabbits and, hopefully, the
raccoons are under control, I
can't wait to see what happens
next!

Awesome catches


I can't imagine lighting a
900-pound blue marlin on
12-pound fishing line.
Former Amelia Island
resident Gary Carter accom-
plished this, almost anyway.
This past August he and
Sherrell Carter raised a 900-
pound blue while fishing in
the Azores
aboard his
fishing boat
"Silver-Rod-
,. .. 0." Gary
I Carter
hooked the
giant blue
marlin with
12-pbund
OUTDOORS fishing line,
.. fighting the
billfish 4 1/2
TerryLacoss hours before
the 12-pound fishing line final-
ly parted.
Late August found the
Carters bill fishing in
Panama, where Gary Carter
fought a 500-pound plus black
marlin eight hours before
breaking her off. During the
same fishing trip, Sherrell
Carter pitched a bait rigged
to two-pound fishing line to a
large dolphin that found their
trolling spread. After several
wild jumps, Sherrell Carter
was able to land her light
tackle bull dolphin, which is
now an IGFA two-pound line
pending world record at 44.9
pounds.
Also during the month of
August, Dwight Griffis cap-
tained his sport fishing boat
"Fishin' Machine" to
Northeast Florida's Big
Ledge. Fishing deep during
the day with large squid,
Garrett Nobles hooked and
landed a 100-pound sword-
fish. Nobles said it was a fish
of a lifetime. After fighting,
deep the sword shot to the
surface making exciting leaps
and thrashing the surface
with its long bill. Also fishing
aboard the "Fishin' Machine"
was Thomas Kerlin.
Recently Capt. Bronson
Stubbs navigated his sport
fishing boat "Vamanos" to the
Northeast Florida Big Ledge
and struck out while trolling.
Later that'morning the fish-
ing crew,.also including Billy'
McFadden and Will Stubbs,
discovered a small rock ledge
in 150 feet of water.'Dropping


Sherrell Carter took this 44.9-pound bull dolphin with
two-pound fishing line during a recent fishing trip to
Costa Rica. Her dolphin is a pending IGFA line class
record for dolphin. .:


baited saltwater gear deep to.
the ledge produced excellent
fishing action for gag !
grouper, triggerfish and
scamps. However, everyone.
on board became "reel" excit-
ed when Billy McFadden tan-
gled with a huge.boi.'. ,111--.i,
eventually gaffing and boat-.
ing a 42-pound gag grouper.
"Billy's 42-pound gag"
grouper is the largest one we
have caught on my sport fish-
ing boat," Bronson Stubbs'
said. "It was a slow day of
trolling that turned into an
exciting day of bottom fish-
ing."
If you are fishing for ex-
citement', local angler Bruce
Comrie books fishing trips to
.tl;, .1 r. n,, ,,, f,., r, 'i ,h \ l ,-, ,
i.,. I.,..- i. ill Gassmani
landed a pending IGFA world
record peacock bass at 28
pounds while.fishing Brazil's
Amazon River in February.
Comrie accompanies his
clients to the Amazon River,
where both.large and small
rivers make upthe world
famous river system. Many of
his clients catch peacock bass
over the 15-pound mark and
peacocks weighing more than
20 pounds are not unusual
catches. "
Comrie mainly focuses on
the small tributaries of the
Rio Negro River,.which even-
tually empties into the wild
and broad Amazon. River.
"On many cases our guide
will run from 1-2 hours up
unchartered rivers, where the
boat ride is almost as exciting
as the peacock bass fishing,"
Comrie said. "Fishermen will
witness a variety of wildlife,
including crocodiles measur-


ing to 20 feet, occasionally
anaconda snakes measuring
ovei.20 feet and a variety of
tropical birds, including the
colorful macaw."
Just this past week Comrie
fished for peacock bass with a
group of American fishermen;
eight fishermen caught and
released some 1,330 bass to
20 pounds:during six days of
fishing.
"C6nditions were near per-
fect,". Comrie said. "We found
low water conditions, which is
a requirement for catching
peacock bass. If the water is
too high, both the bait fish
and the peacock bass will go
way back into the flooded
trees, where they are
1,1-- ,..- 4 ,ii1, uh h ,, h tph
I l, Ii'. ,- vere also on atop-
water bite, which is a lot more
exciting than jig fishing."
Comrie recommends top-
water plugs; including large
chuggers and cigar-shaped
plugs in bone and red-and-
white color patterns. When
the bass are not hitting sur-
face plugs, 1/2-ounce bucktail
tail "Rattling" jigs in the white
or yellow color patterns are
key.
Comrie adds color to the
surface strike made from a
peacock bass.
"Double the surface strike
of a redfish and you have p
peacock bass strike," he said.

tures.com or call Comrie at

ing action and you have it,

and wherever local fisherman
dare to wet their fishing lines.

- Five. PGA Tour golfers have been
Listed on the player of the year ballot:
.V r'i Rory Mcllroy, Tiger Woods, Bubba
\i Watson, Brandt Snedeker and
Jason Dufner. Mcllroy is currently the
number one player in the offidal world golf rankings, is
at the top of the PGA Tour money list and finished
second in the FedEx Cup standings. He won four times
on Tour this year, including capturing the PGA
Championship for his second career major champi-

nine out of the 19 events he played, including three
victories. Watson, perhaps one of the most exciting and
intriguing players in professional golf, only had one win
this year, but it was a big one, coming at The Masters.
Snedeker had an incredibly solid year, with two wins, 7
top ten finishes and ten top 25's in 22 events. Dufner
had two, wins and eight top 10 finishes in 22 events.


S, Wetalked aboutgetting into trouble when you hitthe ball into the trees couple of weeks
ago, but another huge problem is when the ball comes to rest on the wrong side of a
tree. In this case, we rarely e'er have a shot to get the ball closer to the hole. Therefore,
Y our most obvious reaction is to cut our losses and hit away from the target toward a dear
S area. Here's a trick shot that may give you another option to think about If you are
'' feeling really daring sometime, try taking a one-handed swing at the ball with your back
to the target. Stand upright with your back facing the target and play the ball off the toe of your foot.
What you are essentially trying to do is to make a punch shot, so make sure that your hand stays
ahead of the clubhead throughout the swing and the most important concept is to hit down on the ball.

This was written by Garrett
Pelican of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office,
the city of Fernandina Beach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion ofa crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information

tact the "We Tip" program I-
800-78CRIME which allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.
Stolen property
A laptop computer stolen
two months ago aided authori-
ties in its recovery after some-
one contacted the computer
company's technical support
using the serial number, accord-
ing to a police report.
Police said the computer, an
Apple MacBook Pro valued at
$1,300, was stolen from the vic-
tim's car Sept. 12. The comput-
er was reported stolen that day,
along with its serial number.
On Sept. 28, the victim
.learned that someone had con-
tacted Apple's tech support
using the serial. number, and
investigators subpoenaed
Apple's records to track the lap-
top to a South 17th Street resi-
dence, the report said.
A woman at the residence
told police she bought the lap-
top from a girl named "Dana"
for $20, but denied knowing it
was stolen despite the low price,
police said. The woman then
identified "Dana" from a photo
lineup as Dana Marie Gibbs of
Fernandina Beach.
Interviewed on Thursday,
Gibbs, 35;told police she knew .
the laptop was stolen when she

Three victims told deputies
that, following an argument
Nov. 13, Betty Darline Bairdain

bedroom and pointed it at them,
threatening to kill them and
shoot their dog, the report said.
The argument reportedly stem-
med from an Animal Control

dog.
Bairdain, 57, allegedly told
deputies she had pointed her
gun at a dog and then put it
away. She refused to elaborate,
deputies said.

A passion for historic homes


Those that write books will
tell you that anticipating the
publication of a new book is
not unlike welcoming a new
child. There is the long
process that includes the writ-
ing, editing, reediting and
bringing it to print ready. No
Smatter how long you spend on
your writing project it is diffi-
cult to imagine the thrill of
actually holding the finished
product
My sixth book, Great
Homes ofFernandina,
Architectural Treasures of
Amelia Island's Golden Age
has truly been a labor of love.
My passion for our historic
district and in particular the
late 1800s and early 1900s, the
so-called Golden Era, is clear
to anyone who knows me
In the first years of moving
to Amelia Island, I committed
to the outstanding docent
training program at the
Amelia Island Museum of
History. In exchange for a vol-
unteer commitment, the
museum offers a complete
course in the amazing history
of Amelia Island. Starting with
the Timucuan Indians and
working through the eight dif-
ferent flags that-have flown


over Amelia
Island, you
arrive at the
period that
fascinates
me the most.
After the
Civil War
Amelia
Island
became an FROM
amazirig cen- THE
ter of trade PORCH
and attracted
entrepre- "
neurs who Dickie
would build Anderson
businesses
and beautiful homes in what is
now known as the Historic
District.
Tourists flocked from the
north to experience "the
Newport of the South."
Through a quirk Amelia
Island became a sleeping
beauty and her Victorian
architectural treasures
remained untouched. In most
towns the old is t6rn down to
make way for the new. In
Fernandina Beach the old is
now reclaimed and offers a
true living museum of Amelia
Island's Golden Era.
Deana and Phil Kelly, pub-


lishers of the Islander Maga-
zine, shared in my enthusiasm
and we formed a partnership.
When the idea of producing a
Book profiling some of the
more interesting houses my
list grew and grew and I soon
,had 40 houses. The reality of
the cost of printing quickly
narrowed my list to 22.
Jan Johannes, long recog-
nized for his photography and
historic publications, which
include: Tidewater Amelia,
Yesterday's Reflections and a
co-authored (with Bill
Maurer) Sketches ofAmelia
Island and Fernandina Beach,
agreed to work on the book.
Jan's photographs coupled
with a description of each
house's history come together
in a book that also offers a
suggested driving lour
through the Historic District.
Support for the book came
f. om others including
Adrienne Burke, historic plan-
ner for the city of Fernandina


Beach, and good friend and
valued resource Ron Kurtz.
The book would not be possi-
ble without Phyllis Davis,
executive director of the
Amelia Island Museum of
History, and the amazing
archives that have been col-
lected and organized thanks
to Teen Petersen, curator.
So there is a new book in
town that celebrates the
island's wonderful history and
especially a few of the beauti-
ful homes in Fernandina
Beach's Historic District.
Available at the Amelia
Island Museum of History,
the Book Loft, Books Plus,
Front and Centre and the
Plantation Shops at Palmetto
Walk, or contact me at dickie.
anderson@gmail.com.
Dickie Anderson welcomes
your comments. Books are
available at local book and gift
stores or online at www.dickie-
anderson.com.
dickie.anderson@gmailcom


News-Leader columnist Dickie Anderson has released
her newest book, Great Houses of Fernandina,
Architectural Masterpieces From Amelia Island's Golden
Age. The soft-cover book, published by Sweetpea Media,
Inc. and the Amelia Islander Magazine, highlights 22
houses in the Fernandina Beach Historic District. The
)photography was done by Jan Johannes, historian and
architectural photographer.

Cookie tour
Recently, the Fernandina Beach Rotary Club welcomed'
Theresa Hamilton, owner of the Fairbanks House bed
and breakfast inn, who spoke to the club about this
year's Amelia Island Bed & Breakfast Holiday Cookie
Tour, held Saturday. Hamilton said the local B&Bs origi-
nally hosted a successful holiday tour of inns but with
the poor economy, six of the 10 local B'&Bs closed. Four
years ago now numbering eight they created the holi-
day cookie tour. Proceeds from the tour and sales of
their recipe book supplement their advertising costs and
also benefit Micah's Place.

don't mind a bit if you want
to pet me and love on me.
Since I am not a puppy, you
don't have to worry about
that excitable energy or me

yourself.
