P.o. Continued from 1A
es for the sort that makes their
opponents settle out of court.
"Let's settle" has quickly
become a common phrase at
the bargaining table, he says.
Some clients are suspect-
ing couples who want to vet
their new nanny, or distrust-
ful spouses who want proof of
their partners' infidelity.
There are some cases that
defy expectations: like the
time a target, whose home he
was watching, ordered a
-Domino's pizza, paid the deliv-
ery man and sent the fresh pie
over to Cooper's car.
"Well, my surveillance was
over, but I got fed," he says
with a grin.
Worse yet was the time he
fled from a surveillance target
under a hail of gunfire leav-
ing him with a few more
gray hairs and his less lucky
rental car riddled with bullet
holes.
But surveillance isn't the
only sort of work Cooper's
firm offers. In fact, A.I. 13 pro-
vides "executive protection"
services to protect clients from
would-be assassins and "asset
protection" to ward off would-
be thieves.
"Our job is to blend in and
not be there," says Cooper.
These gigs most often entail
providing around-the-clock
protection ,to a client, the
client's family or a specific item
of interest.
Private eyes like him have
many tools at their disposal.
They can use GPS tracking
devices to tail vehicles remote-
ly, but that vehicle must belong
to the person who wants it
tracked or the person placing
it on the car, says Cooper.
More often than not, the
work comes down to shoe-
leather investigating. Of
course, he notes, it doesn't
hurt to have a few tricks up
one's sleeve his include a
necktie camera and a key ring
recorder.
But the private eye's best
tool is information. Most often,
the best sources of that
might be the ones you least
expect the network of sources
that hides behind smiles, cur-
tains and picket fences.
The ones'with whom you will-
ingly share your personal
information without a sec-
ond thought the spies next
door.
"Neighbors are awesome
sources of information," says
SJust because oope .', s
access to resources, such as
GPS tracking, doesn't mean
he can just use them anytime
he chooses. In order to place a
tracking device on someone's
car, he must have the permis-
sion of the car's owner to do
so, he says. Doing so other-
wise is not only illegal, he-says,
it's just plain unethical.
And it's best to stay within
ethical lines, says Cooper, who
points out that everyone h`as
an expectation of privacy. That
line only starts to bend when
people put themselves in pub-
lic settings or situations in

which there is no sense of pri-
vacy. For instance, says
Cooper, a straying spouse can
maintain a sense of privacy
behind closed doors and cur-
tains, but if they're making out
with someone at a bar, they
don't have that same luxury.
"Everyone has a legal
expectation of privacy, to a cer-
tain point," Cooper says.
The scope of the particular
job aside, Cooper says the key
to success in the field of private
investigations is good people
skills. Remembering that these
people, whether they're the
ones hiring him or the ones
he's paid to watch, are human
and deserve kindness and
respect is not only a smart way
of doing business, it's the right
thing to do, he says.

Fitness coach pleads guilty


to lesser charge of child abuse


News Leader
Local fitness coach Doug
Lane pleaded guilty to an
amended charge of child abuse
Thursday in Nassau County
Court and was sentenced to
three years of probation and
ordered to undergo psycho-
sexual counseling.
Lane, 44, had been charged
with unlawful sexual activity
with a minor following his arrest
at his gym on South 14th Street
in October 2011 by police acting
on a complaint that he had a
sexual relationship with a
teenaged girl who was one of
his clients.
Police said they were told in
March that year that Lane had
been having unlawful sexual
relations with the 16-year-old
for about one year, according
to reports at the time.
The victim reportedly told
her mother and a youth church
counselor that the pair had oral
sex numerous limes at varying
locations, includingLane's gym.
They also reportedly had sex
in his car in Nasau County and
elsewhere in Florida when she
traveled with him to athletic


competitions.
SThe vic-'
tim's mother
said her
;. daughter and
Lane regular-
ly communi-
M cated through
Lane text messag-
ing, deputies
said at the
time. Lane reportedly had been
the girl's personal trainer since
she was 12.
As a condition of his proba-
tion, Lane was ordered Thurs-
day to have no contact with the
victim and no unsupervised con-
tact with minors. He also must
pay a $151 surcharge to Crimes
Against Minors, $398 in court
costs and $100 to the State
Attorney's Office.
Lane, a former body-builder,
is listed as a coach with Amelia
Island Sandbox Athletics at 1114
South 14th St., offering personal
training, Sandbox Weightlifting
for students ages 9-25 and
CrossFit classes for adults and
children, ages 4-9.
This is Lane's second felony
conviction, according to court
records.


In October 2001, he was
arrested outside the Sadler
Road post'office on one count ol
felony possession of anabolic
steroids following a joint inves-
tigation by the Fernandina
Beach Police, the U.S. C customs
Service, Florida Department ol
Law Enforcement and Postal
Inspection Service.
According to reports at the
time, police seized 2213 dosag'
units of various anabolic
steroids, which were delivered
to Lane's post office box, and
found 20 tablets of Anaplon, an
anabolic steroid; three tablets
of Viagra; and four tablets sus-
pected to be ecstasy in his vehi-
cle.
One police report said Lane
admitted sending $350 to Brazil
for the drugs. And he later pro-
vided a sworn tape-recorded
statement admitting as much to
the FDLE, according to the
arrest and booking report.
Lane was adjudicated guilty
and convicted in that case,
according to court records, and
sentenced to one year and six
months of probation and
ordered to pay $3,376 in fines
and fees.

Dear Taxpayers:
Did you know that you can pay your annual property tax bill in four quarterly install-
ment payments? By breaking the tax payment into installments, property owners can
make their tax bills easier to manage.
The procedure, as outlined in Florida Statute 197.222, requires, that your estimated tax
exceed $100. Like the regular tax billing process, the installment method provides for
discounts on taxes due:
First Installment Payment: One quarter of the total estimated taxes
discounted at 6%.
Second Installment Payment: One quarter of the total estimated taxes
discounted at 4.5%.
Third Installment Payment: One quarter of the total estimated taxes, plus;
or minus, as the case may be, one half of any adjustment pursuant to a
determination of actual tax liability discounted at 3 %.
Fourth Installment Payment: One quarter of the total estimated taxes, plus:
or minus, as the case may be, one-half of any adjustment pursuant to a deter-
mination of actual tax liability. No discount.
'The deadline to apply for the installment payment method is April 30, 2013. Please be
advised that you would be applying for an installment plan relating to the upcoming
2013 Tax Roll opening in November. Your application will not impact taxes that were
due as of November 1,2012, which is the current Tax Roll.
The application is available at the Tax Collector's website www.nassautaxes.com or by
visiting one of the four office locations listed below. For additional information, please

'Build it, and


The old saying from Teddy
Roosevelt or the movie "Field
of Dreams" goes something
like this: "Build it, and they
will come."
More recently, here in
Nassau County, the script
should be rewritten to say,
"They will come, and build it."
Once again, newly elected
public officials have come into
office with a vision of building
something materialistic, like a
new headquarters or library
or park. In other words, they
want to construct something
with their name ort it as sort
of a legacy.
It's certainly not the first
time it has happened, locally
or otherwise. And it won't be
the last.
With the initiative for a
new $20 million sheriff's
office here, the story transi-
tions into another chapter. Not
too long ago, county officials
constructed the monumental
courthouse annex in Yulee
along with 'a new jail. A new
sheriff's office has been on
the drawing board for some
time.

BUSINESS$ BRIEFS


GRIEF Continued from IA
"Even the few responses
that didn't feel I addressed
their particular religious
beliefs (the book was inten-
tionally void of any religious
persuasions and intended to
be universal) said the book
helped start a discussion on
awkward subject matter," he
notes.
People also commented
that the book eases children's
fears and reassures them in
language they can understand
accompanied by colorful pic-
tures they can relate to.
Weinsier says his greatest
reward has been thank-you
dards and emails he has
received from individuals and
groups such as students in
nine-year-old Christina-Taylor
Green's elementary class after
her tragic death during the
shooting incident that wound-'
ed Congresswoman Gabriel
Gifford, from the chaplain at
Fort Hood where a single
gunman killed 13 people and
wounded 29 others, and even
from Weinsier's own vet
regarding pets who have
passed away.
Weinsier recently sent a
case of his books to Sandy
Hook Elementary and is at
work on a companion coloring
book.
The author's first book
came about as he tried to
come up with an appropriate
gift for his daughter's 21st
birthday in 1996. 4
Wanting to commemorate
not only the special birthday
but also the life changes she'd
face following her college
graduation and movement
into life on her own, Weinsier
started recalling memories of
special times the two shared.
Finding it difficultto cap-
ture the moments in'prose, he
tried his hand at poetry and
soon had filled a 100-page
journal with a tender collec-
tion of treasured reminis-
cences.
His daughter liked the
book so much that he contin-
ued to give her similar jour-
nals-over the next seven
years. Family members who
read the poems began
requesting verses for their

own special occasions and
telling Weinsier he should
consider publishing them.
Prior to his father's
impending 90th birthday,
another volume took shape,
offering more heartfelt
thoughts. The book included
reassurances and thoughts
from the poems he'd written
for his daughter, words of
advice and things we all wish,
we'd said but often don't take
the time to express.
The second book was
given to his father shortly
before he passed away.,
While life after death is not
the primary focus of either
book, the comforting mes-
sages and heart-touching
poems strike an emotional
chord within the reader.
Here ... and Afterthoughts,
based on the original book for
his dad, was published in 2003
and More... Thoughts, was
published in 2005. Where Do
We Go came out in 2008.
After growing up in New


York and spending the majori-
ty of his life in the Miami and
Ft. Lauderdale area, Weinsier
moved to Nassau County per-
manently in 2007.
He says the weather here
couldn't be better and he likes
the general atmosphere and
flavor of the community in
which he is very active.
He's president of the local
petanque club and is on the
board of the Amelia Island
Blues Festival. He's also on
the board of the Cottages at
Stoney Creek condo associa-
tion and voluntarily assists the
Marsh Lakes Home Owners
Association with lake manage-
ment because this was his
profession before retirement.
His pet project at the
moment involves organizing a

laboration with the Florida
Writer's Association and the

SEN ASSOCIATES
ach sea-
ed by


saving
T he purpose of this
submittal to the
News-Leader is princi-
pally in response to
the rhetorical question raised
by a Jan. 30 article regarding
both the propriety and cost-
effectiveness of ongoing
beach restoration along the
southern end of Amelia
Island. After a series of severe
nor'easters in 1992, there was
no longer a sandy beach sea-
ward of Amelia Island
Plantation; most of the pri-
mary dune line had been lost
to storm erosion; portions of
an oceanfront golf course fair-
way were.waist-deep in water
and both the Windsong and
Retreat condominiums were
subject to major damage due
to undermining.
Subsequently, a strategic
fast-track program of beach
nourishment, funded by a spe-
cial purpose taxing district
comprised of only homeown,
ers living within the affected
shorefront community, evol-
s ved as the preferred means of
addressing that magnitude of
erosion and resultant threat to
life, limb and property.
Although the News-Leader
article exhibited well balanced
content and views, there were
a number of related inaccurate
and misplaced allegations by
Mr. Dave Bowman a princi-
pal subject of the article -
which warrant public correc-
tion.
For example, tilling of the
unvegetated (sandy) portion
of a nourished beach is
required by both state and
federal permits and in its sim-
plest sense has been mandat-
ed as a form of endangered
species protection. Moreover,
the planted vegetation located
on Mr. Bowman's oceanfront
property, as well as that which
he has'installed on state lands,
in additionto patches ofvege-


beaches?


station which take foothold on
the south Amelia Island
renourished beach project
* through natural mechanisms,
are all avoided during tilling.
For years, Mr. Bowman
has been requested to direct
his energies and personal
frustrations regarding the
subject of post-construction
"beach tilling" toward the
environmental regulatory
agencies if he desires to elimi-
nate tilling required to protect
sea turtles instead of libeling
the project engineer, the SAfS-
SA Board, SAISSA's attorney
and other individuals associat-
ed with the shore stabilization
project, be they paid or
unpaid. (For the record,
SAISSA's attorney on retainer,
Mr. Arthur I. Jacobs, has
received no form of direct
remuneration associated with
any renourishment- project.)
The state of Florida has
formally determined that the
beaches of South Amelia
Island (like those of the city of
Fernandina Beach) are by def-
inition "critically eroded" and
therefore eligible for. both
beach nourishment and vary-
ing levels of state cost shar-
ing. Moreover, the Florida
.Park Service in 2002 request-
ed the opportunity to partner
with SAISSA in the implemen-
tation of a program directed
toward the long-term stabiliza-
tion of South Amelia Island.
Since then, the nourished
Amelia Island State Park
shoreline has recovered *
almost 100 acres of oceanfront
property previously lost to
erosion and has suffered no
damage to its unique maritime
forest, which by 2002 was
being subjected to annual
flooding during nor'easters
and seasonal high tides.
Mr. Bowman's personal
attack on the project engineer
and SAISSA attorney were not


totally unexpected, however,
for an individual who has been
subject to several restraining
orders and formal complaints
in the recent past related to
beach access issues at/or
near his property. Similarly,
when the governor of Florida
recently directed the secre-
tary of the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection to send the chief of
the Bureau of Beaches and
Shores to personally meet
with and hear Mr. Bowman's
complaints, the latter profes-
sionals were subsequently,
termed by him as the "dumb-
est people on the face of the
earth."
The fact is that sea oats
.alone will not arrest beach
erosion at south Amelia
Island. Vegetated or unvege-
tated, the beach system can
lose on average up to a quar-
ter-million cubic yards of sand
annually along the stretch of
shoreline between American
Beach and Nassau Sound. The
SAISSA board, beginning in
about 1993, correctly adopted
a comprehensive shoreline
management strategy cen-
tered upon a program of
beach restoration. That
approach likewise fostered
both dune reconstruction and
protection, as well as the
reestablishment of salt-toler-
ant vegetation. For those rea-
sons, and only for those rea-
sons, the south Amelia Island
beaches exist today in a wide,
robust and vegetated condi-
tign suitable for public recre-
ation, tourism, storm protec-
tion, endangered species
enhancement and last, but not
least, the preservation of a
very large percentage of the
tax base of Nassau County.

Dune destruction: stop


Being born and raised in Florida and never
living more than 45 minutes from the beach at
any time in my life, and for almost 15 years liv-
ing on the beach here, I feel somewhat confi-
dant to say 1 have a lot of beach experience.
The beautiful coastal system we have is a
wonderful living thing and changes continually
every day.
Storms, nor'easters and the like threaten
our beach, dune and vegetation system
throughout the year and without routine beach
renourishment and stabilization efforts our
homes, community and native coastal habitat
and creatures would be at risk'- I get it.
Millions and millions of dollars have been
invested into local beach renourishment since
1990 and the results are one of the most beauti-
ful beach coastlines in Florida and the preser-
vation of one of the county's largest economic
engines.
We even have our own special taxing district
on the south end of the island, SAISSA (the
South Amelia Island Shore Stabilization
Association, Inc.), which has collected millions
of dollars from property owners since its incep-
tion and has done a relatively good job of main-
taining the south end beach it's still there.
Mother Nature continually takes the sand and
man then replaces the sand a never-ending
process it seems.
The purpose of SAISSA as explained by its
project manager is to "protect, promote, pre-
serve and enhance the beaches of the south
end of Amelia Island." It's a very important role
that Florida takes very seriously with numer-
ous laws on the books to "protect, promote and
preserve" our coastline.
Chapter 161 of Florida Statutes explains in
detail how serious the state is. Florida's intent


of these laws basically is to
r Bnot "jeopardize the stability of
the beach and dune system"
or to "accelerate erosion" or
"endanger neighboring prop-
erties." And this is where I
get confused.
Florida law clearly
addresses "beach restoration"
and "dune protection".
MY VIEW There's a difference
betweenn "beach" and "dunes"
the "beach" is to play on and
Foy Maloy. the "dunes" are to stay off of-
Publisher it's the lawv. The "beach" is for
the recreation of Florida's res-
idents and visitors and the "dunes" protect the
upland properties and homes from storm dam-
age and afford habitat to a variety of coastal
wildlife both df which need protecting.
Coastal wildlife includes sea turtles, native
mammal and bird species and a variety of
migratory'sea birds that nest here annually in
the dunes and vegetation.
Dunes are mounds or ridges of sand and
.sediments deposited beyond the high water
* line by nature. Uniola.paniculata, the sea oat, is
God's device to aid in the capture and accumu-
lation of sand in the creation of dunes, which in
turn become our first line of coastal defense
when bad weather moves through.
It's against the law to mess with or harm the
sea oats in any way and it's against the law to
drive on the dunes it's that simple it's pro-
hibited. Sea oats are a protected class of vege-
tation per Florida law it's a second-degree
misdemeanor carrying a $500 fine and up to 60
days in jail.
We have state laws that protect the stability


)tilling

of the dune system from encroaching construc-
tion, yet we allow the Florida DEP
(Department of Environmental Protection) to
allow and defend the ongoing plowing and
destruction of the dunes and vegetation on our
island.
The requirement in the permit states for the
tilling or plowing (36 inches deep) of the
"beach" per an engineer with Olsen and
Associates, which has the SAISSA contract it
Does not say the "dunes and vegetation."
Continual plowing of the dunes and vegeta-
tion prevents the dune system from develop-
ing. Until plowing is stopped above the high
water line the beach will never stabilize and
millions and millions of resident's tax dollars
will continue to be simply put thrown into
the ocean.
Advocates of the plowing state it's for the
sea turtles' benefit during nesting. I've seen
numerous sea turtle nests on our beaches and
none of them have been in the dune system.
It simply does not make a lick of sense to
me.
Florida law 161.25 and 161.35 empowers the
Nassau County Commissibrn with the supervi-
sory and regulatory responsibilities of "all
physical work or activity along the county
shoreline which is likely to have a material
effect on existing coastal conditions or natural
shore process."
It would appear our local county govern-
ment could trump SAISSA and the contract if
they choose. Stop the plowing of the dunes and
vegetation above the high water line. I urge our
county commission to step up and end this
madness you can Florida law says so.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Turtle nesting
I have read your articles with
i-espect to positions of an Amelia Island
homeowner,; SAISSA and Omni Amelia
Island Plantation. ("Wasting millions of
dollars," Jan. 30). Everyone is right
and there may be a solution. Statewide
nesting of sea turtles are protected
under Florida State Statutes just as sea
oat grass have Florida State protec-
tion. All of us agree on the protection
of sea turtles and the value of sea oats.
Why not submit a formal request to
- the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission and their captive Wildlife
Research Institute for their recom-
mendation for a setback from the high
water mark which will safeguard turtle
nesting? Beyond the setback, the
beach does not have to be tilled and
would enhance the beach renourish-
ment and beautification;as well as save
money.
Sea oats 1Ce a ci 1ic:l element to
barrier island ,-col' '-mec:l n i, stabiliza-
tion. Florida and Georgia have statutes
which will levy fines for sea oats and
sea dunes disturbance. My home is
on the beach and I walk the beach sev-
eral times each day and notice the
increasing abundance/renourishment
of fine sand around the sea oats, which
creates expanding sand dunes above
the coarser sands with higher shell
content. SAISSA is a great organiza-
tion but my question is a sole source
contract as compared to a competitive
bid may yield new ideas (e.g. the addi-
tion of "groins") and competitive pric-
ing. Olsen Associates is a respected
firm. I am sure theywould be willing
to compete for pricing and ideas.
As mentioned above, I live on the
beach and walk it three times a day. I
pick up about 1.5 pounds of trash every
week. If we all made an effort and
picked up plastic bags and any garbage
while walking the beach, it would save
more turtles from dying from synthetic
ingestion as well as protect the beauty
of our beach community.

Credit to the county
An article in last month's News-
Leader included a 2012 listing of the
accomplishments as reported by
County Manager Ted Selby in his
report to, the Board of County
Comrhissioners.
Even in these tough economic
times it's nice to see a robust list of
accomplishments in Nassau County
that includes renovations to our parks
and recreation facilities, additions to
our Fire Rescue, new library programs
and completed road projects.
Consider this a note of thanks to the
county staff who are committed to qual-
ity service to the citizens and visitors
of this county and the leadership of
our Board of County Commissioners
who continue their conscience work on
behalf of the Nassau County.taxpayer.

Guns and people
Agun owner most of my life, I can't
agree with the arguments in ("A naive
people," Jan. 25).
When the Constitution was written,
there:was either no standing army or
at best, a miniscule one. The states
relied upon citizen militias making gun
ownership a necessity. On the frontier,


we were still fighting Native
Americans, necessitating gun owner-
ship. For many, guns put food on the
table there were no ubiquitous super
markets. None of these conditions exist
today. Then, muskets were single-shot,
, muzzle-loading affairs and took a
trained person about 60 seconds to
reload. There were no automatic or
semi-automatic weapons with 30 round
clips capable of-killing 20 children in a
matter of seconds.
We now have a standing'army. If
ever the people need to protect them-
selves from a future tyrannical gov-
ernment, civilian ownership of assault
rifles is not likely to do the job. That
government would have an army
equipped with tanks, APC's with real
machine guns, cannons, Apache heli-
copters, bombers, etc., against which
militia advocates wouldn't last very
long with only their assault rifles in
defense.
Furthetrmore, 'hi- C:n'ri ilufi,' is
not absolute. There are many cases in
wlfich the Supreme Court has con-
strued the provisions of the
Constitution in consideration of evolv-
ing societal conditions: Roe vs. Wade
for just one recent example, basing
the "right" to abortion on a purported
right of privacy. In the Dred Scott case,
a Supreme Court ruling that the
Congress could not prohibit citizen
ownership of slaves was overturned
in effect by the 14th Amendment.
Times change and the law needs to
evolve in consequence.
Common sense requires that we at
least evaluate the applicability of the
Second Amendment to current condi-
tions. There are 12,000 gun homicides
per year and 18,000 gun suicides. This
is a tragedy. Most civilized countries
restrict gun ownership, and the Hitler
references aside, have not fallen to
tyrannical governments in conse-
quence. Their per capital death rate
from guns is also a fraction of ours.
Gun proponents posit that any reg-
ulation of assault rifles, or even multi-
round magazines, is an assault on the
Second Amendment. This ignores the
fact that no reasonable person is argu-
ing that the restriction should be
extended to. all guns. If an assault bani
were instituted', there would still be
hundreds of thousands of guns in the
hands of the public. The' "slippery
slope" argument, like the tyrannical
government argument, is just specious.
Finally, current law restricts and or
regulates (subject to payment of a tax,
background check and approval of
local police and the ATF) the private
ownership of many forms of military
hardware such as machine guns; hand
grenades and cannons. It is illegal to '
import or own a machine gun. pro-
duced after 1986, and.those manufac-
tured in the U.S. can only be sold to law
enforcement entities. Should such reg-
ulations be viewed as a violation of the
Second Amendment's right to bear.
arlms? Thus, the issue is not an
absolute, but is one of proportion, bal-
ance and common sense.

With all the negative events hap-
pening with shootings in our society
the call for reducing certain guns gives
those against those rights full venting
spills as to why they should be out-
lawed.
This also gives those in power to
play politics and-use these horrible
events as justifiable means to take


RICK MCKEE/THEAUGUSTA (GA.) CHRONICLE


more rights and add more government
control over our lives by trying to
change our constitution.
Many do not want to hear that it is-
not the gun but the person behind that
gun, which is the problem; All facts
clearly show this out.
Seems like on a daily basis that
Jacksonville has at least two shootings
every day, and yes, the areas those
happen in have to be considered, and
the type of people committing them.
Add this by the overall stats in each
state and city it is mainly the same type
areas in each incident.
Gang, drug-related, domestic issues
are most common with a few road rage
issues being thrown in. the mix.
Innocent people in certain areas being
shot by missed targets in drive-by drug-
related incidents. As well as unstable
persons in domestic crimes, events
such as these have been ongoing for
eons.
I The crazy senseless mass shoot-
ings at the schools and movie theaters
are by mentally unstable people; who
may have given indications at some
point of their intent and the need to be
evaluated by mental health staff.
With all the guns sold and owned in
this country and many of those are
the so-called assault rifles, the mass
numbers of those guns are not'involved
in these type events where unstable
people go out for media fame and cre-
ate crazy senseless assaults like Sandy
Hook. We have very capable laws now
if enforced to the max to keep the cra-
zies and emotionally troubled from get-
ting them, except to steal from those
who have them or owners that were
negligent in the safe keeping of their
guns, the need to give the government
more power to take away the rights to
bear arms by law-abiding citizens just
for those that dislike guns in any form
and those that choose that right to
have them, as our forefathers under-
stood the need for this country's citi-
zens to have arms. Again it's not about
gun control it's about government con-
trol for our officials to want to change
this in any way be it magazines, amount
of ammo is a first step, from there
when the next nut case goes berserk
with whatever type weapon it will be
the cry for more government control
to further those powers over us.
I see a major shift in our people
today by past elections that the mass-
es seem to want the government to
take over our lives and freedoms and
live under the failed policies of other
countries where those governments
control the people.
Hitler and Stalin told their people


they would not confiscate their guns,
we know how that turned out.
I for one want to keep the freedoms
we have lived under most of my life,
our Constitution helped us to be the
best country on Earth, by the wisdom
of our forefathers on both sides of the
aisle let's not give one side or the other,
the power to take those away from us.
Again it is being divide and con-
quer by letting those against guns to
take away the right of those that
choose to own and protect. And using
the few nut cases that commit these ter-
rible acts on kids and other innocent
people.
Let's protect our kids in schools
and other public venues with armed
police or retired officers like we protect
our money, celebrities and politicians.

Re: the shootings at schools and
other wicked and bad things done by
people around the world.
The core teaching, the.main teach-
ing of children and everybody should
be kindness, caring and respect. It
starts with the father and mother who
are the first and main teachers of their
children, then family, house of wor-
ship, schools, teachers, really every-
body.
The Christian Bible says at
Deuteronomy, chapter 6, verse seven,
tells where dad and mom should be
teaching their children being with
them a lot really everywhere. Jesus
Christ says at Matthew chapter 7, verse
12 to treat other people the way we
want to be treated which is good. And
at Galatians chapter 5, verse 14, it says,
"For the entire law stands fulfilled in
one saying, namely you must love your
neighbor as yourself" and who is our
neighbor? Everybody is our neighbor.
If you think about it, all people on Earth
are related, just some closer than oth-
ers. Kindness, caring and respect, the
whole world would be a better place.

Climate change
The sky is falling, or maybe not
(viewpoints on "Energy, politics and
climate change," Jan. 2 and Jan. 9) I
read these a few weeks ago and spent
some time researching the writers'
facts. I found many errors.
We all know climate change is a
very touchy subject, we all know that
in some small way we are having an
impact on our world. I have watched
this closely for many years and like


many I too believed in it fully until I
started to really pay attention and not
just be another sheep. Back in 1989
my friends and I had a booth at the
University of Rhode Island on Earth
Day, we were touting super conduc-
tivity in short a superconductor the
size of a quarter would power New
York City for two years and electricity
would be free. That being said, over the
years I have read all the pros and cons
and found more cons than pros.
Thegroup of scientists touting glob-
al warming moved the hockey stick,
yes, they changed the numbers. This
is fact. Why would they do this? Well,
they get thier funding for this research
from the governments they work for;
if they told the truth they would be
out of a job.
The writers state that we can use
alternative energy, well, we're not there
yet, not even close. We have no choice
but to work with fossil fuels at this time
unless you want to go back to horse
and buggys or using candles. We have
the technology for clean burning coal,
and the myths about ftacking are just
that, hyped up myths. Do the research
I did. And nuclear is safer now than"
ever before, we use reactors on our
subs and Navy ships so what's the
problem?
The problems are the NIMBYs (not
in my backyardd, the writers tout
storms like Sandy and Katrina, well, all
of us chose to live on the coast so we
know the risks and know it could hap-
pen. Mother Nature is just that, nature,
how do we know that the Earth is not
just going through a natural cycle, just
like the sun does? We don't because we
haven't gotten the scientific studies
long enough.
The writers state we should have no
problem paying more for electric and
gas and food all are connected, our
electric bill just went up another $5 a
month. Maybe the writers can afford it
but most of us struggle each month.
So here are some facts, our C02
footprint in the U.S. right now is at
1992 levels, and yes, maybe it's because
we are trying to curb our use, we don't
know(hey won't tell us. There has not
been an increase in temperatures in
over 10 years, and there are no facts to
show any connection to the storms we
have had and global warming period.
So while the writers stress thait we
need to save the planet for our chil-
dren, how about we save okr children's
-financial future first, then we can get to
work on finding the truth about cli-
mate change.

Band of birds


I've always admired the
wintering flock of brown peli-
cans that hang out around
Atlantic Seafood and the city
boat dock at the Fernandina
Beach downtown marina. It's
a great place to see both
mature and immature peli-
cans all hanging out close
enough to touch if you dare
(but don't they are a protect-
ed species). Otters also some-
times visit this area, so for
years I've been making peri-
odic visits there to look for
wildlife.
But little did I know how
much of a story these peli-
cans have to tell. Until wildlife
researcher Jay Barry turned
up that is. Thanks to his tute-
lage now I view these birds in
a totally different way, up
close with binoculars trained
on their legs. It turns out that
a number of these pelicans
have metal bands on their
legs, and sometimes colored
ones besides. It takes a
bit of work, but if you take
close-up photos of their leg
bands from all directions, or
use binoculars similarly, you
can read off the eight digit
numbers. And then the real
fun begins!
For instance, a few days
ago Bucko and I were able to
read the tag on one pelican
and we dutifully entered it in
the official U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service website
(http://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/b
bl/b.blretrv/) found by just
Googling "report banded.

Paut
Foster- Iurley
ster in a r.- -,;,,i-


form the site
replied with
ia thank-you
and, better
yet, some
information
on the bird
we saw.
"Our"
pelican
turns out to
be a first-
year bird,
banded July
9, 2012, as a

less young-
area on an


island shared by Maryland
and Virginia in Chesapeake
Bay. With a little more
Internet sleuthing I discov-
ered that this bird was one of
633 young pelicans banded
that (lay by a group of Coastal
Bays Stewards and Boy
Scouts volunteering with the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
at Rhodes Point, Va. And now,
not yet a year old, this bird
has flown to Florida to join
some older buddies at the
Atlantic Seafood dock.
And that's not all. In the
past week Jay managed to
identify a few other pelicans.
.Two of these also came from
Rhodes Point, one tagged in
2010 and another tagged in
2001 and now 12 years old!
Seems like the word in the
Rhodes Point rookery is to
head to Atlantic Seafood a
great place to spend the win-
ter!
It isn't only Rhodes Point
birds that make it here. In the


past couple of winters here
Jay has also identified peli-
cans banded in Cape Fear
River, N.C. One pelican he
spotted here last week has an
even more interesting story.
It turns out this bird was an
oiled victim of the BP Deep
Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of
Mexico in 2010, then trans-
ported to the U.S. Coast
Guard Base in Brunswick,
Ga., for cleaning and
release.
If this information excites
you, like it does me, you can
also be a part of the action.
New pelicans are showing up
all the time. Just spend a bit
of time hanging around them
with your camera and binocu-
lars and you too can report a
banded bird and learn some
of its history.
As these records get com-'
piled by the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service we all get a
chance to learn more about
the travels of these Florida
hallmarks.
And it gets better yet! If
you want to help band birds.
yourself, you're in luck! Jay
Barry, a retired biology
teacher, has been banding
birds with an Audubon
Society in New Hamp-
shire for the past 30 years and
now has valid permits from
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service and the state of
Florida to band Forster's
terns and ring-billed gulls
here in North Florida.
Jay also has city permis-
sion to band birds on
Fernandina City beaches and

Concealedweapon
A convicted felon accused
of carrying a'concealed hand-
gun into a local bar was arrest-
ed on a felony weapons charge
early Saturday, according to a
police report
Security at the Hammerhead
Bar on Sadler Road pointed out
the man, later identified as
Anthony Rivera of Fernandina
Beach, to an off-duty officer
about 12:13 a.m. and said he
had previously brought a con-
cealed firearm into the Palace
Saloon, the report said. The off-
duty officer, Joshua Paetsch,
confronted Rivera just outside
the bar door and asked him if he
was armed.
When Rivera, 43, did not
answer the question, Paetsch
handcuffed him and found a
handgun tucked in the back of
Rivera's waistband, the report
said. The handgun, a 9mm pis-
tol, did not come back as having
been stolen.
Rivera allegedly told police
he was holding the gun for
someone else, but later said he
had found it.
A check of Rivera's criminal
history showed that he's previ-
ously been convicted of a felony
credit card fraud charge in
Florida, the report said. He also
served eight years in prison,
stemming from a 1989 armed.
robbery conviction in,
Connecticut, the report said.
Rivera, of 23643 Bahama
Point Drive, Apt. 1327,
Fernandina Beach, is charged
with possession of a firearm by
a convicted felon and resisting
without violence.
Stalking
A Fernandina,Beach man
was arrested on stalking and
threat charges Saturday even-
ing outside a local business his
ex-girlfriend had locked'ah~6dff
inside, according to a police
report.
While meeting with police
at the South Eighth Street busi-
ness about 6 p.m. Saturday, wit-
nesses told police that Brian
Keith Jordan of Fernandina
Beach had been harassing the
woman through phone calls and
texts since Jan. 27.
Jordan called her phone
while she was showing Officer
Joshua Paetsch the voicemails
and text messages Jordan had
left, the report said. Paetsch
told Jordan, 42, he needed to
stop calling and Jordan alleged-
ly said he knew calling the
woman was illegal, but he was-
n't worried, police said.
A few moments later, accord-
ing to the report, Jordan sent
her atext, informing her that he
had just driven by her home
and she wasn't there. Paetsch
left the business to locate
Jordan, but was called back by
a witness, who said Jordan was
there and trying fo get inside.
Paetsch arrived not long
after and arrested'Jorprdan, who
was standing outside the busi-
ness, the'report said.
The woman had since re-
ceived more textsfrom Jordan,
including one that said, "I got
my 9," which she took to mean
that Jordan was armed with a .
9mm handgun, the report said.
But Paetsch said Jordan was
not armed at the time of his
arrest.
While headed to Nassau
County Jail, Jordan asked
Paetsch if he could use his cell
phone to call his employer, a
roommate and a bail bondsman,
a request Paetsch said he
obliged because Jordan had
been cooperative, the report
said. 'But after arriving at the
jail, Paetsch learned thatJordan
had instead used the phone to
text the woman again, includ-
ing a message that said 'ur
gonnapay,", the report said.
Jordan, of 835B Mary St.,

with threats and intimidation, a


felony, and stalking, a misde-
meanor. He remains at Nassau
County Jail on a bond of
$75,000.

While under arrest on an
unrelated charge Jan. 28, Tessa
Amelia Tulloh allegedly told


deputies that she was with

ly told deputies that he, Tulloh
and Della Rova entered the

zines, ammunition and jewelry

Henry tops Parade magazines 50th annual team


BETH JONES'
News-Lea,der


Accolades keep showering down on Derrick
Henry. The 6-foot-3, 243-pound running back from
Yulee was featured on the cover of Parade maga-
zine Sunday as the player of the year on Parade's
50th annual All-America High School Football
Team.
The magazine recognized 57 players in all; 13 on
offense and 13 players on defense. The team was
compiled by contributing editor Brian McLaughlin,
who covers college recruiting for the Sporting
News. In selecting the team, he considered all-state
teams, state player of the year honors z i .Ili:it._ /,
as w ell as his-ow n ,i'-.. 1 i- ,.-ni at g..',11 ,. y.-c.. .1 1n ]
to a press release. '
Offensive players needed to show eye-popping '
numbers against good competition during their ;
senior season and t., \l :ii strong .11, -I 1, .I '
potential, as measured by the interest they've had
from 1i' r. ii ii p ..i i' -. he says.
As for defensive players, McLaughlin says he
looked for -playmakers who could change games
with in1i' *, ,. i..ii', sacks, tackles for loss or
blocked'kicks. They needed to have had a big sen-
ior year, he says, and they need to be headed,
places.
Parade has been naming its All-America High
School F."...1'iidi Team annually since 1963 and has
a long history of recognizing top :. 'in I il talent.
More than a dozen Parade All-America recipi-
ents have gone on to win the Heisman Trophy.
Some of them include 2012 Heisman Trophy win-
ner Johnny Manziel, Matt Leinart, Eric Crouch,
Chris Weinke, Roi Dayne, Herschel''A.\l, .. ,

Garrett. Some other high-profile honorees include
Hall of Famers Earl Campbell, John Elway, Dan
RM. ii n. ., Joe Montana and Emmitt Smith.
Henry certainly had the eye-popping numbers'
McLaughlin was looking for 12,124 career yards
rushing on 1,387 carries, breaking the record held
by Ken "Sugar Land Express" Hall since 1953.
"Derrick may have new-schbol moves (to go
with his collection of 75-plus pairs of sneakers), but
he's got an old-school soul," the Parade article
reads. "When he talks about his life, the word
Il-.. T'comes up a lot. Instead bf choosing an out-
of-town football powerhouse high school, he -'I
put in Yulee 'i".' .1'i ii 11,491)."


Henry's coach, Bobby Ramsay, also contributed
to the article.
'A lot of coaches told him to work hard and stay
humble, and he's listened," Ramsay said. "He took
a lot of pride in the fact that he's helped make
Yulee known. We're just a public high school in the
woods. He's maintained an innocence that is really,
refreshing."
Henry was the most valuable player for the
third year in a row in Nassau County.
"This was a special year for the team and the
school, and certainly Derrick was a big part of
that," Ramsay said. "I don't think people under-
stand how hard it is to do what he did, considering
the attention he got from opposing defenses.. It put
a lot of pressure on him and on the offense, as
everyone had to step up."
The Hornets went 9-4 this season and Yulee
made its first state semifinal appearance. The
Hornets were district and region champs.
Henry finished his senior season with 4,292
yards and 55 touchdowns on 462 carries all state
single-season records. In addition to the national
career rushing record, Henry also holds the record
for most consecutive 100-yard games with 45.
Henry scored 63 touchdowns in all for Yulee
last fall, passing for one. He was again the 4A play-
er of the year in Florida and beat out 2A player of
the year Kelvin Taylor of Glades Day for the 2012
I'. I .1 il, Dairy Farmers Mr. Football title.
Henry was also the Gatorade Florida Football
Player of the Year and played in the U.S. Army All-
American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas, on Jan. 4.
He was a finalist for player of the year for that
game.
An early graduate; Henry reported in January to
the University of Alabama, where he will play
under Coach Nick Saban.

ducive to strollers.

and it has become one of the community's
most popular races.
Awards go to the overall male and female
winners, masters (age 40 and up) and grand-
masters (50 and up) and to the top three male
and female finishers in 15 age groups. There
won't be duplicate awards.

day. Members of Amelia Island Runners get a
$5 discount (not available with online registra-
tion). Proceeds will benefit Amelia Island

Where there is a will there


Amelia Island offers so many
opportunities to enjoy its beauty and
to participate in one's favorite sIxrt.
Whether it is beach walking, bicy-
cling, golf or tennis Amelia Island is
a great place to live. Golf courses
abound, but' tennis courts have been
limited.
In 2009, we local tennis players
lost the availability of six courts at
Thy Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. The
hotel had to make room for an
expanded campus including a major
ballroom addition. The courts had
offered opportunity for competitive
team tennis as well as social tennis.
We were left courtless! A group of
dedicated players decided to work
together to find a solution to their
dilemma.
They found an ideal partner and
location. Tucked in the'beautiful oak

woods off
Buccaneer Trail is
the Kraft Athletic
Club. It has some
history. In 1954 a
group of 20 employ-
ees at the Kraft
Corporation Paper
Mill contributed
$500 each to buy 10
acres of property
along the Amelia
River. The goal of
the group was to
offer a place for ath-
,letic activities and
socialization.
What's not to like?


In the late 1930s, the establish-
ment of paper mills on the island
made a huge impact on the island's
struggling economy and brought


many new people to the island and
the group wanted to provide a place
to enjoy the beautiful environment
and recreational fun. Why Kraft? The
word "kraft" means -n,. iili in
German.
The kraft process produces
stronger paper than other pulpipg
processes. The Kraft Corporation of
American mill opened in 1938 on
Amelia Island. Through the years it
has gone through many name
changes as it has been bought and
sold. These include: Container.
Corporation, Jefferson Smurfit in
1986, Smurfit Slone in 1968 and
RockTenn in 2011. Through all the
changes the nonprofit Kraft Athletic
Club has continued to provide bene-
fits to its members and protect its
unique and beautiful location.
The tennis group approached the


is a way
existing club and proposed creating
an additional nonprofit group to
focus on tennis and utilize the avail-
able land. In 2009 Krafl Tennis
Partners was formed. The money
was raised through the contributions
of 110 players. Five iar Tru courts
were open for play Jan. 1, 2009.
Through the volunteer efforts of the
members a great many amenities
have been added. There is a conven-
ient club house, a shaded patio and
viewing area adjoining some of the
playing courts. Ieague matches are
played on a regular basis. The club is
committed to the community and
hosts Quick Start programs for
youngsters, fundraisers for commu-
nity nonprolits and sul)pports Yulee
Youth Tennis.
That determined group of tennis
players has created a successful ten-


nis club and is planning to expand
and improve their offerings. The
expansion will allow for additional
member opportunities. Plans include
the addition of two additional Har
Tru courts with lighting. Lighting
will allow those with work schedules
to play at night. As they say, build it
and they will come. This time it isn't
baseball; its tennis!
An open house at the Kraft Tennis
Club will be held on Sunday, Feb. 10
from 2-4 p.m. with tennis, food and
fun. For more information contact Bo

Foundation work
Recently, the Fernandina Beach Rotaty Club wel-

Griffin, a member of the Daytona Beach West
Rotary Club for some 30 years. He spoke about the
work of the Rotary Foundation, saying its mission
is to promote friendship, peace and understanding
throughout the world. Its most notable project has
been End Polio Now, which has reduced the num-
ber of polio cases globally from 365,000 in 1985
to just 175 cases in 2012. He thanked the club for
its financial contribution to the nearly $ 1.3 million
the district has given to that project. With the threat
of polio all but eradicated, Griffin said the
Foundation has identified six areas for future fund-
ing, including water and sanitation, maternal and
child healthcare, economic and community devel-
opment and peace and conflict resolution. He also
applauded the Fernandina club for partnering with
the District Foundation on grants supporting the
local Dictionary Project and St. Vincent's Mobile
Health Van as well as the club's international proj-
ects such as ShelterBox and the Honduran clean
water project.

'Bird Detective' class for all ages


For the News-Leader

Have you noticed the beau-
ty and variety of birds that live
on or visit Amelia Island? Do
you know how to identify
them?-Do you wish you could
do so? Then plan on attending
a one-hour program for
wannabe birders!
Wild Amelia and the city of
Fernandina Beach,
Department of Parks and
Recreation, have announced
that a Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Program, "Bird Detective,"
may be the way to initiate a
passion for birdlwatching.
This "Bird Detective" hour-
long program will be offered
to beginning birders of all ages
on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 10 a.m.
in the Rec Room of the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center.
This program is free.
The instructor for the "Bird
Detective" program will be
Carole Adams of the Duval
Audubon Society who has been
a birder since the age of 10. A
popular, in-demand lecturer,
Adams has served as president
of two Audubon chapters and
has been a member of the
Board of Audubon of Florida.
She has worked tirelessly on
habitat protection in Florida
and was thrilled to be among a
team of three who discovered
the Great Sand-Plover on
Huguenot in May 2009.

Do you know how to identify this bird, what clues to look for? Interested in becoming
a birder? Then, call 277-7350 to register for the Feb. 16 free program, "Bird
Detective," to be offered at the Rec Room of the Atlantic Recreation Center.


This informative Fish and
Wildlife program, "Bird Detec-
tive," explores the six clues to
bird identification: body types,
distinctive markings, bills,
behavior, habitat and sound.
Further, the program reveals
what these clues teach about a


bird's identity and more.
Though the "Bird Detec-
tive" program was originally
written for third- through fifth-
graders, it is useful for begin-
ning birders of all ages. So both
the young and the young at
heart are welcome to attend.


Individuals who would like
to attend the "Bird Detective"
program should pre-registerl
by calling the Recreation
Center Office at 277-7350.

NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY


Ginger and Itty Bitty are
sweet, gentle girls who lived
in a home for 7 years, and
now they're ready to take up
residence in your home and
your heart. They know how
to be great house dogs -
they're housetrained, can sit
and shake hands, and walk
very well on their leashes.
They're quiet and mellow but
also alert and intelligent. It
would be great if a special,
dog lover could adopt them
together, although we also
think they could be adopted
separately. (We can offer a
financial incentive if you
could adopt both of them!)
They need to be in a home
without cats. They are 7-year-
old Black Mouth Cur mixes
with wonderful personalities,
and they get along beautifully
together. They have nice soft
coats for petting. Ginger
weighs about 50 pounds while
Itty Bitty is a bit larger. Their
owners took wonderful care
of them, and they come with
their complete medical
records. We think they would
do well with children, and
they seem to like other dogs.
They are very affectionate
and always happy to see you.
Often two dogs are better
than one, because they can
keep themselves entertained
when you're otherwise occu-
pied, and you'll know that
these two get along extremely
well. We think they'd make
wonderful, low-maintenance
family pets for many years to
come.
Bess is a sweet and beauti-
ful Domestic Short Hair mix
who just loves to be petted.
She's very affectionate and


gets along with the other cats
in our cattery. She's about a
year old and came to us with
three other kitties from'a
home that had too many cats
to take care of, and she was
the most outgoing of the four.
When you pet her gorgeous
black coat, she'll tell you she
appreciates it! Bess needs a
caring cat owner to talk to,
and a loving home of her very
own. She'll adore you forever
for it! You can see videos of
our adoptable dogs and cats
on our website, Nassau
HumaneSociety.com.
Thank you for your great
support of our Second
Chance retail store in its new
location, in the 8 Flags
Shopping Center at 1002
South 14th St. If you have
,new or gently used items that
you'd like to donate to a great
cause, we could really use
them! We gratefully accept
donations of gently used fur-
niture, ladies' clothing,
household items, jewelry,
books, toys, collectibles, art,
pet items and more. Please
drop off items at the store
Monday-Saturday from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m., or call 321-0022
to arrange for pick-up of large
furniture. Thank you!
