FPU claim asks


city to pay $400K


for airport cleanup


ANGELA DAUGHTRY'
News-Leader
Florida Public Utilities has sub-
mitted a formal notice claiming the
city did not disclose information on
solid waste buried under 8.3 acres that
FPU purchased from the city in
January 2012.
FPU spokesman Ron Flick pre-
sented city commissioners with the
notice at the commission meeting Feb.
19.
According to the notice, the city
recognized and remediated two envi-
ronmental problems at the Fernandina
Beach airport property after an envi-
ronmental assessment by FPU dur-
ing the due diligence period'of pur-
chasing the property.
The notice also claims the waste
was discovered early last November
during site clearing and grading and
consists of "automotive parts and other
debris" dating as far back as the 1970s.
Initial discovery showed trash 1-2 feet
below the surface of the property with


a depth of 8 feet thick covering about
an acre of land.
FPU claims remediation costs are
estimated "to exceed $400,000" for
solid waste "in excess of 10,000 cubic
yards on at least two separate sites." It
also says in its notice that the amount
of debris "confirms this landfill con-
dition occurred more than 40 years
ago ... during the ownership and at
the hands of the city of Fernandina
Beach."
According to City Attorney Tammi
Bach, the city is not liable for the dam-
age and is trying to avoid litigation,
and further has not said it will clean up
the property.
Bach also said the city's insurance
covers environmental issues, but it is
"too early to tell" how far that coverage
will go. She noted FPU and Compass
Development Group may also have
appropriate insurance to cover the
damage.
"In Florida, with commercial real

Theresa Dede (Talty) Stone
Theresa Stone surrendered her long-
term battle with. cancer, passing into the
arms of God on Wednesday, February 20,
2013. .
'Theresa was born to Thomas & Hulda
Talty on February 23, 1958 in Springfield
Missouri, the youngest of seven children.
As a child, she was gentle and private, yet
active in Girl Scouts and a member of the
High School Drum Corps. Theresa elected
to go in a different career direction than the
historical family trend of ministry, teaching
'or medicine, receiving her undergraduate
and Master's Degree in Geological Engine-
ering from the University of Missouri at
Rolla School of Mines. After a few years
working in the petroleum industry, Theresa
then went to work for Waste Management,
Inc., working as a Hydrogeologist and
Environmental Geological Engineer for
Waste Management, Inc. in Texas, Illinois,
Georgia and finally Florida. Theresa loved
her work and especially enjoyed the people
she worked with, both in the office and in
the field.
People describe her as a joyful person,


chipper and energetic. She had a beautiful
smile, an exciting laugh that immediately
made you happy and she laughed often!
Theresa loved bird watching, fossil col-
lecting, painting, interior decorating, dec-
orating for holidays, needlework and going
to movies. Her favorite holidays were the
4th of July with fireworks and homemade
ice cream; Halloween with scary decora-
tions and funny costumes; and Christmas,
taking hours to decorate the tree and bake
cookies.
Theresa was fantastic at problem solv-
ing, eager to learn, and always on top of
what was going on in the world. No matter
what the subject was: any kind of science;
politics; the economy; medical break-
through or perhaps the latest c.ontrover-
sial procedure, and yes even the Hollywood
gossip; Theresa could carry on a lively con-
versation. She had a unique gift of being
able to listen and hear people when they
talked; provide comfort, encouragement,
and perhaps a grounded piece of advice.
She was our voice of reason in this crazy
chaotic world! Theresa also had a whimsi-
cal nature about her with an eagerness to
participate in playful antics. She had a flair
lor life and was a kindred spirit to many.
Theresa had an unconditional love for oth-
ers, always assuming positive intent, even
when someone said or did something that
hurt a little. She was active in her commu-
nity including: Girl Scouts, PTO, and her
church.
Theresa loved to travel with her hus-
band Brad and daughter Sarah. Their trav-
els were always unique and included horse-
back riding, hiking, fossil and rock
collecting, and always some sort of new
adventure! Their time 1. ,i.-.ti hI_.-i i, what gave
her the drive and energy to keep on fight-
ing. In all her travels there were two places
she loved most; Stotts City, Missouri, where
her mother grew up, and Cumberland
Island. Cumberland was by far at the top of
her list. She had'a love nad a passion for
Cumberland. The unique beauty, history,
wildlife and solitude of the island gave her
a special peace and comfort.'
There are no words to describe the deep
undying love that Theresa had for Brad.
As for Sarah; Theresa's whole life evolved
around her and was for her! Theresa
focused every day on how she could make
their life and Sarah's childhood as normal
as possible. People never knew the multi-
tude of times when they were doing things
together that Theresa was in pain or.sick
from chemo. She was a brave and coura-
, geous woman with amazing physical and
mental strength all the way to the beginning
of her next journey and adventure!
Theresa was a dear sweet lady, devoted
wife, mother, sister, and friend who left this
world a better place because of who she was
and what she left us with along the way!
While she will be missed beyond expres-
sion, we now have another angel in heaven
watching over each of us.
Theresa is survived by her husband
Brad and daughter Sarah, a large extended
family and countless friends. The family
wishes to thank all of those who cared for
her during her last few months. Memorial
gifts may be made to the American Cancer
Society or to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering
Cancer Center.
The family received friends at Oxley-
Heard Funeral Home located at 1305
Atlantic Avenue, Fernandina Beach, Florida
on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 from 5:00
p.m.-7:00 p.in. Funeral services will be held

Don't be


victim


of scam
Nassau County Sheriff Bill
Leeper has reminded the com-
munity that scammers are con-
stantly finding new ways to tar-
get victims. If you have been
victim of a scam you can call
the NCSO at.225-0331.
Here are some common
scams aimed at separating vic-
tims from their money:
Lottery Ticket Scam. This
scam usually targets Hispanics.
The suspect approaches the vic-
tim and says he or she is having
trouble cashing in a Florida
Lottery ticket due to being in
the country illegally. The sus-
pect tells the victim there are
fees or taxes that need to be
paid up front. At some point a
second suspect appears as a
third party who overheard the
conversation and agrees to give
some of the money toward the
fees if the victim will give the
rest. Once the victim has hand-
ed over money the two suspects
disappear.
Foreign Lottery. The vic-
tim is notified that he or she has
won a foreign lottery and must
collect the winnings by a cer-
tain date. Along with the notifi-
cation letter is a counterfeit
check the victim needs to cash
or deposit to cover the "fees"
associated with the winnings,
which are to be wired to the
suspects, usually out of the
country.
Secret Shopper. The victim
receives a counterfeit money
order or cashiers check in the
mail and is instructed deposit it
into his bank account and then
make two or three small pur-
chases to evaluate. The victim is
also asked to evaluate compa-
nies that wire money (Western
Union and Money Gram). The
victim is requested to withdraw
the remaining money from the
deposited counterfeit check and
wire those funds, usually to
Canada. Within two weeks the.
money order or cashiers check
is returned as counterfeit
Overpayment. With the
economy the way it is people
might be inclined to sell items
on eBay, Craigslist or other
online venues. Beware if the
"buyer" sends a check greater
than the sale amount and asks
that the difference be wired to a
thieAf.r'tVWh b is arraigitg
",i66k hifatr g'
out to be counterfeit and the vic-
tim will be responsible to the
bank for cashing or depositing it
Bank Examiner/Police
Impersonator. This scam usu-
ally targets the elderly. The sus-
pect contacts the victim claim-
ing to be either a bank examiner
or police officer and asks for
the victim's assistance in catch-
ing a crooked bank employee.
The suspect asks the victim to
withdraw money and turn it
over to the suspect as part of a
confidential investigation. Once
the suspect receives the money
he or she disappears.
Nigerian Letter. The sus-
pect requests the victim's assis-
tance in moving mongy, usually
from Africa to the United States,
so the government does not
keep it.'
Circle of Sisters; This
scheme, usually targeted at
women, calls for invited partic-
ipants to contribute $5,000 to
the circle. The promise is that as
participants move closer to the
center of the circle they will
receive up to $40,000 as new
members join. Not only are par-
ticipants likely to lose the
money they contribute to the
circle, being affiliated with such
schemes is a crime in Florida.

CLAIM Continued from 1A
estate transactions, the burden
is on the buyer," Bach said.
"FPU and Compass Group did
not find anything (wrong with
the property) during the 105-
day due diligence period."
FPU also claims it and its
affiliates have "been damaged"
and are "suffering ongoing
interruption damages associat-
ed with the construction and
discovery of this latent defect of
an undisclosed city landfill."
'The city is going to work
with all parties to make sure
the issue is resolved," Bach
said.


BROWN Continued from 1A
child. We encourage each
child to follow their dreams
and be proud of who they are."
Brown previously looked
after youngsters for five years
as a teacher's aide at Emma
Love Hardee Elementary and
back in her native Tennessee,
as a teacher at Head Start.
As a Sunday school teacher
at First Assembly of God,
Brown appreciates the oppor-
tunity to share her faith with
children in the Christian-based
Prime Tyme program.
"Here I can do more with
the kids. I can run my pro-
gram my way. In school, you
can't talk about Jesus or the
Bible, but here I can. I also
have the opportunity daily to
encourage a child to be the
best they can be," she said. "I
tell them they can be anything
they want to be, just open their
minds and go for it!"
Brown is in partnership
with local teachers and won't
hesitate to call them if a stu-
dent comes in and says they
don't have any homework.
"I can keep up with what
they're working on in school
and that way, I am more or
less piggybacking with the
teachers to make sure the kids
are doing what they're sup-
posed to be doing."
In addition to homework
help, children take part in the
accelerated reader program,
science, arts and crafts and the
Youth Fit For Life program
that teaches nutrition, cardlo
and strength training.'
Brown is enthusiastic in


"We hope to encourage the
city to make this as reasonably
friendly as they can," Flick said,
"and want them to participate in
monitoring the discovery and
cleanup."
"We're trying to avoid bring-
ing inf other parties," he said.
He also said FPU would agree
to help finance the cleanup if
the city's insurance policy does
not cover it.
Compass Development
Group originally purchased the
property for $730,000 in 2012
and assigned rights over to

her praise of the garden.
"We have a beautiful gar-
den on-site that the staff and
children care for it is a cool
way to teach the children
responsibility and caring. We
share the seasonal harvests
with our families."
Last year's garden yielded
okra, tomatoes and squash
and this year, so far marigolds
and strawberries have been
planted.
"We had a little bit of every-
thing. We'd pull it and put it on
the table and the parents
would take it home."
Brown said some of the
parents who used to go to
school at Atlantic Avenue
Elementary come in and remi-
nisce about their days as stu-
dents and how the cafeteria
was before being renovated
for the YMCA program.
Brown, a 30-year Nassau
County resident, shares her
home with husband Joseph.
The couple has five grown
children and 13 grandchildren.
Leisure activities include a lot .
of reading and spending time
with her grandchildren.

Southeast Georgia Health
System announced it will
soon embark on a new con-
struction project, thanks to a
generous donation received
in late December.
Although the donor wish-
es to remain anonymous, the
purpose of the gift is specif-
ic. The health system is
required to use the funds to
build a new lodging facility,

the visiting family members
of cancer and critical care

service area and medical stu-
dents rotating with the
health system's medical staff.
"We are very thankful for
this gift and the opportunity
to improve our patients and
their family members' expe-
rience," says Gai'y R.
Colberg, president and CEO.
"We often have family mem-
bers who travel from out of
town to be near their loved
one when they're hospital-
ized, and patients who travel
significant distances to
receive cancer treatments.
Soon, we'll be able to offer
them a comfortable home-
like environment which, we
hope, will help to alleviate
some of their stress and anx-
ieties."
Plans include a one-story
residential building with
three neighborhoods. The
cancer patient residential
neighborhood will include
16. one-bedroom- units, the
critical care patient residen-
tial neighborhood will con-
sist of 12 two-bedroom units,
and the student/on-call res-
idential neighborhood will
have 16 one-bedroom-and 2
two-bedroom units, all of
which include compact
refrigerators, microwaves,
and handicap-accessible rest-
rooms with showers ....
Cach unit will be fully fudr-
nished and equipped with
dinnerware and other essen-
tial items. A comfortable,
welcoming common area wvill
serve as the central entry
point.

'Flu Kit available


I The flu epidemic has.
threatened local seniors and
now their families are fighting
back with "Fight the Flu Kits"
and caregivers to protect their
elderly loved ones. Weaker
immune systems'make sen-

flu-related deaths and more
than half of flu-related hospi-

65 or older.

A place where the fish



are always biting


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
Dorn and Teresa Whitman
have been serving Amelia
Island's fishing public since
they opened their bait shops
in 2000.
Although the downturn in
the economy forced the clo-
sure of their shop at the Eight
Flags shopping center, the
store across from Tiger Point
Marina is still going strong.
Fisher folks may purchase
all manner of accoutrements
necessary to outfit-a day of
fishing, including various
types of in-shore and off-shore
bait such as fiddler crabs,
fresh dead shrimp, live
shrimp, mud minnows and
more.
Anglers can also pick up
snacks, sodas, water and ice
before they head out on the
Water. The shop does not sell
beer or cigarettes.
Teresa Whitman says she
loves the location for its con-
stant parade of birds and
wildlife.
"Sometimes we'll see dol-
phins or manatees and it's
always great to see the differ-
ent types' f 'maish birds like
pelicans, herons, egrets and


loons.."
One of the most interest-
ing visitors was a deer that
swam from Ft. Glinch across
Egans Creek, which runs
behind the shop. *
"That was really something

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27. 2013 OPINION News-Leader


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Guns
I am writing in response to two recent letters:
"A naive people" and "Gun expertise."
First, in response to "A naive people" the
writer quotes Ben 'Franklin: "Those who would
give up essential liberty for a little temporary safe-
ty deserve neither liberty nor safety." Recently,
we as a people gave up a little liberty for securi-
ty (as provided in the Fourth Amendment guard,
ing against undue search and seizure) shortly
after the September 11 tragedy when we allowed
the government to intrude and spy on individu-
als without their knowledge or a court order.
As no one associated with any guns rights organ-
ization objected to that, as far as I know, it is
unfortunate that this argument is forwarded in
support of allowing individuals to possess
weapons of mass destruction, read assault
weapons, to proliferate in the United States. So
much for Ben Franklin's quoted warning.
The writer goes on to argue that the inhuman
treatment that was visited on the Russian people
by Joe Stalin and on all of Europe by Adolf Hitler
happened to a population that had been dis-
armed. This is niot true. In Russia, most of the
troops returning home after the 1917 armistice
with Imperial Germany kept their weapons.
These weapons were used in part in the forma-
tion of the Red Army to defeat the White Russians
* and the new Polish government onslaught in
the 1920's. The death toll referred to by the
writer was from the collectivization efforts in
1931 and 1932 that lead to mass hunger and
death on a large scale especially in the Ukraine.
Through lack of a free mass media and'the fer-
vor that the Russian people invested in the rev-
olution, Stalin and the Soviet politburo were able
to implement these outrageous polices.
In Germany, as in Russia, troops returning
home after the armistice with the victorious west
kept their weapons. The Freikorps (Free Corps)
battles in all of the major German cities, espe-
cially in Berlin, between the leftist and rightist
groups went on sporadically throughput the
1920's. These fights were a major reason that the
Weimar Republic fell and the Nazi party under
Hitler was able to come to power legitimately. It
was then little problem for Hitler to take over and
form a dictatorship. However, the gigantic death
toll of innocents, noncombatants, took place after
Hitler started World War II, in 1939, and really
after the invasion of Russia in 1941. This death
toll was not because the population lacked
weapons, on the contrary, at this time a huge
number of German men were under arms and
diligently carrying out their orders including
the liquidation of non-Aryans including, Jews,
gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally impaired
and any other group not in conformance with the


racial policies of the Third Reich.
So, both dictatorships, Russian and German,
were created in spite of an armed population
and with the connivance of that populace. So
much for the argument that an armed population
stops the formation of dictatorships.
In this country when now President Obama
was first running for office in 2008 he may have
promised not to infringe on Second Amefidment
rights. However, this does not preclude the pres-
ident from proposing changes to the Constitution.
Our Constitution' provides a mechanism for
amendments or the Constitution would not have'
been amended 27 times so far including the
Second Amendment. President Obama has not
issued an executive order to confiscate weapons.:
He has, however, suggested several measures in
an attempt to mitigate the ever rising and unnec-
essary death toll from guns. The president is!
riot only empowered to do this, it is part of his job,
- caring for the safety and well-being of all the'
people. Contrary to the assertion made, the pres-
ident is in full compliance with the Constitution'
and the current laws of the land as regards the,
Second Amendment. As the writer points out,'
there is really nothing to keep the government
from transforming itself into a dictatorship. The.
best weapon to thwart such a move, however, is
a well-educated public, not a haphazardly armed
mob. To date, the U.S. government has put down
at least three attempts by portions of the popu-
lation to use force, including guns, to stop the fed-
eral government from enacting policies and
implementing laws and in one case to defend
itself after an attack: Shays Rebellion, the
Whiskey Rebellion and the Civil War fall into
this category.
The writer goes on to include an impassioned.
plea that only the large private ownership of
assault weapons will keep the American people
free. The reality is quite different. A mob of gun
owners will not stand a chance against our mod-
ern professional army, which was created after,
the draft was abandoned. The drafta cross sec,-
tion of our population, was probably our best
defense against the creation of a dictatorship in
the United States but wiser heads decided to do6
away with this form of compulsory civic duty.
The rational that the muskel in the hands of
the Continental Army wori the war is trueto a,
point. But, Washington and his army lostimost of
their engagements and only after 10 years of on
again off again war, did.we win. Not because we'
had an armed population, however, but because
the British were involved elsewhere,-they pre-
ferred to occupy rather than hunt down and
destroy the Continental Army, and finally they
suffered a series of spectacular blunders. This,
takes nothing away from the skill, daring, brav-
ery and endurance of Washington and his troops;


but we were lucky; just as we were lucky in.the
War of 1812 when Britain was occupied with
France.
The writer concludes with the timeworn argu-
ment that guns do not kill, people kill. However,
the only use for a gun is to kill something, such
as people. His argument that if God played a
more prominent role in "the public square" is
questionable or fallacious. The First Amendment
to the Constitution specifically prohibits the
'establishment of a religion. In spite of that, the
president took the oath of office with his hand on
two Bibles. Congress opens each session with a
prayer offered by clergy of different faiths and
denominations. PrAyer in school is gone, but I
remember the Jewish children in my classes
being forced to listen to or recite something that
did not pertain to them. So, until we come up with
a method to be all inclusive, we need to back
awy from a single religion in the public square
as required by the First Amendment to our
Constitution.
In the second letter, the writer of "Gun expert-
ise" quotes President Jefferson about gun own-
ership and what it would take to stop tyranny. I
would direct the writer to a piece of legislation
called the Insurrection Act that was passed into
law in 1807 and signed into law by the then cur-
rent President Jefferson. The purpose of the act
was to limit the ability of the president to use fed-
eral troops in a domestic rebellion until all local
civil attempts were unable to put an end to the
rebellion. But the act does allow the president to
send in the troops when needed as President
Eisenhower did with the federal troops in Little
Rock. President Jefferson knew full well what he
and the congress were about as two previous
rebellions against perceived tyranny had been
stopped with help of the federal government.
Shays Rebellion during the term of the Acts of
Confederation, precursor to the Constitution,
and the Whiskey Rebellion were both quashed
with the aide of the federal government at the
time. The biggest rebellion of course happened
when President Lincoln was in office; the Civil
War that accounted for over 600,000 deaths. The
south convinced itself that the north was about
to take away their ability to continue a way of life
based on slavery.
The writer goes on to claim that the AR15 fires
the .223 bullet that is not as powerful as some
hunting rifles of bygone years, probably bolt
action without magazines. What the writer fails
to say is that the .223 is the 5.56 mm NATO
round that has been highly praised for its stop-
ping power and ability, at short range, to shred
the target, as in children in a classroom. The
AR15 fires the same round as the M 16 in use by
our armed forces today.
The writer explains that the AR15 requires the
pulling of the trigger for each shot fired and that
the AR15 is not fully automatic. Again correct as
far as it goes but: "Semi-automatic AR-15s for
sale to civilians are internally different from the
full automatic M16, although nearly identical in
external appearance. The hammer and trigger
mechanisms are of a different design. The bolt
carrier and internal lower receiver of semi-auto-
matic versions are milled differently, so that the
firing mechanisms are not interchangeable. This
was done to satisfy U.S.'Bureiu 6f 'Alcohol'
Tobacco, Firearms'and Explosives requirements
that civilian weapons may not be easily con-
vertible to full-automatic. In the late 1970's and
early '80's items such ps the "Drop In Auto Sear"
or "lightning-link," conversion to full automatic
is very straightforward (sometimes requiring
machining of the lower receiver with use of a
lathe and M16 Bolt Carrier Group)" (Wikipedia).
So, it appears that we can purchase a legal AR15
and with little bother create an illegal fully auto-
matic personal 'weapon of mass destruction.


Something I am sure that a gun expert and
owner of an indoor shooting range would know.
The writer goes on to claim that the AR15 dif-
fers from the M 16 and if the AR15 was stripped
down we would have a muscled up .22 caliber
weapon. Not entirely true, as the only real dif-
ference between the two is that the AR15 is man-
ufactured from aluminum and the M16 is made
from steel and of course the difference in firing
mechanism. Not much of a difference and cer-
tainly it does not make the AR15 into the cute,
cuddly killing machine that the writer wants to
portray.
A point is made by the writer that out of the
millions of guns of all types in circulation only a
few incidents like Newtown happen. An "ah
there, there Virginia, it isn't as bad as you make
it out to be" sort of argument. I argue that any
incident like Newtown or the other atrocities
recently committed make it long past due for
us to get any weapon that is clip and/or magazine
fed off the streets and out of people's hands.
Revolvers with six rounds do nicely for self-
defense but are less conducive to the mass
killings possible with weapons that are clip
and/or magazine fed. Rifles and shotguns should
be likewise restricted to no more than six rounds
and all weapons should require manual reload-
ing one round at a time.<
The comparisons cited by the writer are also
misleading. What does the number of murders
committed by rifle have to do with the number'
of murders committed by hammers? Let's instead
look at the number of firearm deaths versus
automobile fatalities in the United States as
reported by USA Today. "In the United States in
2010, the rate of firearm deaths was 10 people per
100,000, while for traffic accidents it was 12 per
100,000. Firearm-related deaths totaled 31,672 in
2010." I do agree with the writer that not all auto-
mobile deaths are accidents and many are pre-
ventable. At least most people support steps to
make automobiles safer and to train auto drivers
to pay attention. Furthermore, the automobile
has a use above and beyond causing death. Guns
do not. It is time that the gun lobby listens to the
people about making guns safer and train people
in the safe use and storage of guns.
In conclusion, the writer notes the pathetic
aim of the highly trained New York City police
department. I agree that a target rate of 17.4
percent is atrocious. I do not think though that
increasing the number of bullets in the magazine
will necessarily increase the success rate, but it
will ensure the death of more bystanders. The
same article states that in one instance not only
was an armed suspect hit by a very low per-
centage of the rounds fired but the same highly
trained police managed to hit nine bystanders.
Just think of the carnage if they had 100-round
magazines at their disposal.
With these types of statistics, it scares me to
think of arming a teacher, janitor, or a volunteer
with a high capacity automatic or semi-automatic
weapon to stop a perpetrator while frightened
children run in all directions. Do we seriously
think that severely strained, untrained people
will perform better than trained law enforce-
ment officers? I think not and can only hope that
the writer is not jerked out of a sound sleep and
blb *s away a loved with the gun sitting beside his "
Bible.
He argues that illegal sales of weapons will
make folks rich if guns are restricted. Legal gun
sales are currently making the NRA and others
rich. Illegal sales continue even with guns legal
and those sales are making folks rich. NRA con-
tributions to political campaigns are making
politicians rich. There's always money to be
made.

[ VIEWPOINT/GIL LANGLEY/TOURIST DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL


Tourism of

n just a few days, Amelia Island will cele-
brate the completion of the $85 million
"re-imagination" of Omni Amelia Island
Plantation. In addition to allowing the des-
tination to reach entirely new markets in the
tourism industry, the project will add 200 full-
time jobs and more than 120 seasonal jobs,
contribute significantly higher property tax
revenues and generate additional opportuni-
ties for restaurants, attractions, personal serv-
ices and other small businesses throughout
Nassau County.
The re-imagination is the latest of numer-
ous investments to the Amelia Island tourism
industry made over the past five years.
Including Omni Hotels & Resorts purchase of
the Amelia Island Plantation, more than $240
million has been spent for renovation, expan-
sion and development of new hospitality offer-
ings. This includes the $65 million expansion
at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island over a five-
year period.
The expansion included a new ballroom,
spa, Salt restaurant and room renovations,
which resulted in two coveted AAA Five
Diamond Awards. Additional expansions
include the $20 million, 135-room Residence
Inn Amelia Island and extensive renovations
of the Days Inn & Suites, Harborfront
Hampton Inn & Suites, Hampton Inn, Amelia
Island at Fernandina Beach and the Amelia
Hotel at the Beach.
The lodging industry is not the only seg-
ment that's seen significant investment.
Existing restaurants such as Caf6 Karibo,
Sliders Seaside Grill, Miss Carolyn's, Bar Zin


fers bright

and T-Ray's have expanded
significantly in the past
year. Sums into seven fig-
ures have created and
S I enhanced outstanding din-
ing experiences such as
David's Restaurant, Don
Quixote, Ciao Italian Bistro
and Verandah. Those
investments bode well for
Langley young people entering the
job market. Restaurants
are a critical employment
engine for Nassau County, with close to 2,000
jobs in the workforce. Even a small establish-
ment, such Caf6 Karibo, employs more than 50
people on an annualized basis.
Overall, the tourism industry supports one
out of every four jobs in Nassau County. In the
12-month period ending June 2012, tourism
business provided more than $100 million in
wages for Nassau County residents. According
to Florida Tax Watch, tourism is one of the two
sectors of the Florida economy that created
jobs during the recession. We experienced
some of that growth here in Nassau County.
And that was in addition to the hundreds of
high paying construction and trade jobs creat-
ed as a result of all the private sector invest-
ment in infrastructure. '
Although on a smaller scalethe tourism
industry has even seen investment by state
and local government The Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT) invest-
ed into beautification of the Eighth Street cor-.
ridor and bike trails along A1A, with the Board


r future

of County Commissioners pledging support
and maintenance. The city of Fernandina
Beach obtained a USDA grant to expand the
downtown comfort station and is currently
partnering with the Amelia Island Tourist
Development Council and Restoration
Foundation to repair and renovate the railroad
depot visitor center.
Finally, the more than 460,000 overnight
guests who visit Amelia Island each year con-
tinue to spend significantly at local businesses
and support our economy. Last year, the aver-
age travel party spent more than $1,600 during
a four-day trip. The result is that tourism-relat-
ed businesses generated 36 percent of the
sales taxes collected in Nassau County and
had a total economic impact of $360 million.
And tourism is one industry on Amelia Island
with significant job growth.
According to Florida Tax Watch, a new job
is generated for every 85 new visitors. Using
current occupancy numbers for the island, the
155 new rooms at Omni Amelia Island
Plantation means Amelia Island has the ability
to host approximately 260 more guests each
day, which translates into 950 new jobs each
year.
These figures and the ongoing investments
into the hospitality industry offer a positive
outlook for the future of the Amelia Island
tourism industry. These incredible enhance-
ments allow Amelia Island to reach new mar-
kets and position itself as a top island destina-
tion in the world.
Gil Langley is managing director of the.
Amelia Island Tourist Development Council.

Gun control
If we were honest with ourselves,
we would understand that opposition
to the modest proposals for increased
gun control comes from two sources:
money and power.
The firearms industry, through the
NRA, is motivated by money from the
sale of weapons, regardless of the use
of those guns. It spends great sums on
political lobbying and media output
directed at opposition to gun control
simply to make money.
The individuals who buy those
guns are motivated by a desire for
power, whether consciously or not.
Criminals buy guns so they can be
more powerful than their victims and
then take their possessions or lives.
Other citizens buy guns primarily so
they can feel powerful over people
they believe are threats, or over the
animals they hunt.
Regulations that make it more dif-
ficult for criminals to obtaiI'guris are
so obviously needed that even the
NRA is indicating agreement.
Regulations that make it tnore dif-
ficult for ordinary citizens to buy guns
are much more controversial. Public
support requires a majority of us to
examine the risk/reward equation of
gun ownership and decide if the power
of owning guns is really worth the risk
of their misuse.
Misuse of guns is the major factor
behind the horrifying statistics of mur-
ders of all kinds in America not just
the school massacres that hit the head-
lines. History tells us that when
revolvers became freely available in
the 19th century, homicides increased
greatly, committed both by criminals
and ordinary citizens. The same holds
true today and tte guns of today are
much more deadly.

An additional benefit would be the
large decrease in the pl-ison popula-
tion. Also, people with a real addiction
would not have to hide their problems;
they would be able to come forward to
seek help instead of fearing arrest and
imprisonment.
In the past, the government helped
the mentally ill with treatment and
institutions to provide housing and
care.for those unable to care for them-
selves. However, beginning with the
Ronald Reagan administration, the
government has turned those people
out on the streets in order to save
money. Making reasonable mental
health programs and treatments avail-
able will not stop all mentally ill from
violence, but it could make a significant
difference.
The violence against women act is
a no-brainer. The holding up of the act
for renewal by a number of Republican
Congressmen is nothing short of crim-
inal. This act has been in effect for 20
years and has reduced gun violence in
domestic situations because of the
intervention and help that it provides.
All women need to be included in this
bill, including American Indian women
who experience some of the highest
rates of domestic violence in the coun-
try.
In summary, stop the drug wars -
40 years is long enough, provide ade-
quate mental health care and pass the
violence against women act.

Sequestration
First and foremost, no one forget
that it was the president that designed
and rallied for these automatic
- cuts, so anytime you hear him rally
about how this is all the-Republicans'
fault it is nothing but pandering
to low information voters that are
duped daily by the "mainstream"


NATE BEELER/IE WASHINGTON EXAMINER


local and national media.
With all this talk about furloughs
and babies with no food or laying off


police and firemen, let's take a look at
the numbers we are talking about in
"Real World" numbers. Half of the
cuts come from defense and the rest
from domestic programs, the total
budget for the year is $3.5 trillion and
the cuts we are set to see are $87 bil-
lion, which is a total cut of 2.25 percent.
A person or family making $50,000
per year would see a decrease of
$1,125 for the year 'under the
sequestered budget. Now, I can't speak
for everyone's financial situation, but
I think that the $9375 per month that
I would have to shave from my budg-
et would not make me begin thinking
about getting a second job or putting
food on the table for my children. It is
simply a decline in the growth of my
savings account, as the sequestration
cuts are simply a decline in the normal
growth of government versus deep
gauging cuts that the Democrats are
spouting off daily in the news.

Animals as food
I would like to bring awareness to
anyone who consumes animal prod-
ucts. I am not trying to sway anyone
into a vegetarian lifestyle, but I would
like to ask that everyone be mindful of
the horrible conditions that "factory
farmed" animals endure: 95 percent
of the beef, chicken and pork come
from factory farms and the conditions
are usually very bad. These animals
live in spaces that are crowded and
very often cannot even turn around.
Without going into graphic detail, I
would like to let readers know that
there are alternatives. You can ask
your grocery store to carry natural
meats (many already do) and find out
where your meats come from. Grass-
fed cows that are hormone free are
ideal. They are more costly, but you
are also investing in yourselves
through healthier choices for you and
our environment. We can all take steps
to consume less flesh foods from the
factory farms who cannot or will not
provide humane conditions. The envi-
ronmental ramifications of the large
amounts of animal protein consumed
is becoming a huge problem. You can
educate yourselves by viewing a doc-
umentary titled "Vegucation" on
Netflix and you can go to www.all-crea-
tures.org for more information. I


appreciate this platform to share infor-
mation and I hope that this subject
matter will help to bring change to
this ever-growing problem. I am hope-
ful that we can all feel an obligation to
how animals are treated before they
become food on our plates.

Jane Adams House
Recently, my husband was required
to go into a nursing home. This much
dreaded decision contained an unex-
pected surprise. The surprise was the
wonderful, upbeat experience we had
at Jane Adams House.
The home-like atmosphere includ-
ed homemade from scratch meals pre-
pared by an excellent Southern cook
who keeps a close eye on nutrition
and calories. She also prays for every
person there. The spacious rooms
included a large private bathroom and
a walk-in closet.
The people on staff were friendly,
cheerful and loving. He was even given
a cookie the last thing at night before
bed. This nursing home is a real home.
What a pleasant surprise!

Looking forward
I want to express my deep concern
about the city commission's vote to
return most of the loan that had been
developed as "Forward Fernandina."
It seems that our local government is
increasingly unwilling to fund projects
that will improve the welfare of our
community. In my opinion as a city
resident, the city government should
be responsible for repairing and
improving the crucial public infra-
structure of the city. That includes
buildings, roads and sidewalks, trans-
portation and recreational facilities.
Private investors cannot be expected
to provide funding for such public
endeavors. This decision of financial
retreat by the city commission is mir-
rored by similar decisions made by
state and federal governments with
respect to projects that enhance the
public welfare. At the federal level,
this entire country is facing the so-
called "sequester" which comes due
on March 1 unless the Congress and
the president come to their senses
and vote to change course. The fund-
ing cuts are projected to go on for 10
years, amounting to a total of $1.5 tril-


lion. According to the Congressional
Budget Office, funding cuts of the
sequester just in 2013 would cost
750,000 jobs and reduce the Gross
Domestic Product by more than half of
a percentage point.
Some other negative immediate
consequences of the sequester are fur-
loughs or layoffs of most of the
Pentagon's civilian employees, airport
security screeners, customs agents,
air traffic controllers, FBI employees,
Homeland Security border agents and
U. S. Department of Agriculture food
safety inspectors. In addition, there
will be a 2 percent cut in Medicare
funding, as well as significant cuts to
various government contracts and
grants. Two specific funding cuts will
be to Head Start and Special
Education, programs that are of fun-
damental importance to all communi-
ties across the country.
The mindset of scarcity currently
seems to reign in this country, one of
the richest countries in the world. In
the long range, the projected 10 years
of austerity represented by the
sequester will adversely affect, most
especially, the 16 percent of the U. S.
population currently living in pover-
ty. How can our decision-makers allow
this to happen, knowing that there are
alternative choices that could prevent
this calamity?
Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel Prize-win-
ning economist who teaches at
Columbia University, offers these sage
comments about the current economic
situation. About setting government
budgets the way we run our house-
hold budgets, he says, "... the analogy
between the household and the econ-
omy is false: cutting back on govern-
ment spending destroys demand and
destroys jobs." Stiglitz offers this
advice to move forward away from the
sequester,"... there are alternative tax
and expenditure policies than can
simultaneously increase economic effi-
ciency, increase the nation's output
and lower its unemployment rate and
address one of the country's most trou-
blesome problems, its growing
inequality."
We must address these issues and
concerns in a positive forward-look-
ing manner, rather than retreat into
the mindset of scarcity. Certainly, we
must carefully evaluate our spending
priorities. But we must not act in a
way that increases the burdens of
those living in poverty.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Garrett
Pelican of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office,
the city of Fernandina Beach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,
,Iilliard and Bryceville. The "We
Tip"program 1-800-78CRIME

anonymous tips.
Cocaine bust
A local nursing home admin-
istrator was arrested on a drug
charge after police found
cocaine m his SUV during a traf-
cic stop Thursday evening,
according to a police report
I Police stopped a maroon
adillac Escalade driven by
Jacob Rudolph Carver on South
fifth Street about 8 p.m., after
seeing the vehicle driving the
vrong way on a one-way street
tn the unit block of South Third
Street, the report said.
Asked for his driver's
license, Carver handed over his
passport and told police his
license was suspended for driv-
ng under the influence. While
speaking with Carver, an offi-
cer spotted a plastic bag con-


.. 4


training white powder in the
vehicle's cup holder, the report
said.
Police said Carver had a
flushed face, watery eyes and
his breath smelled of alcohol.
Carver, 25, said he drank sev-
eral beers at area bars, but
denied any knowledge of the
white powder, police said. He
allegedly told police he had at
least five beers and had smoked
marijuana within a few hours of
the traffic stop, the report said.
The bagged substance test-
ed positive for cocaine, the
report said.
After Carver performed field
sobriety tests, police arrested
him for driving under the influ-
ence. Results from his breath
tests for blood alcohol content
were 0.0195 and 0.199, the
report said. The legal limit is
0.08.
Carver, of 95049 Palmetto
Trail, Fernandina Beach, is
charged with possession of
cocaine and driving under the
influence. He remains at Nassau
County Jail, but it was not clear
if a bond amount had been set.
Drugbust
A Fernandina Beach man
accused of hitting a woman with
a car seat was arrested on a list
of charges Sunday evening after
police found drugs on film dur-
ing a traffic stop, according to a
deputy's report.
Responding to a reported
battery, deputies on the look-


out for a red Chevrolet Camaro
driven by a man named
"Martin" stopped a vehicle
matching that description near
Mobley Heights and Old
Nassauville roads about 8 p.m.
Deputies forcefully removed the
.driver, 71-year-old Martin Alvin
Lemke, from the vehicle after
he refused to give his name, the
report said.
Deputies found three white
pills, later identified as the nar-
.cotic painkiller hydrocodone,
and a blue pill, later identified as
the erectile dysfunction pill
Viagra, during a search of
Lemke, the report said.
The victim of the reported
battery identified Lemke as her
attacker and told deputies he
had struck her in the back with
a child's car seat after he
refused to leave her property,
the report said.
Lemke, of 823 Division St.,
Fernandina Beach, is charged
with possession of a controlled
substance without a prescrip-
tion, possession of a new leg-
end drug without a prescrip-
tion, simple battery, trespassing
and resisting without violence.
He remains at Nassau County
Jail on a $14,000 bond.
Cocaine bust
A Callahan man arrested for
driving under the influence in
his driveway after refusing
sobriety tests was charged with
cocaine possession after
deputies found the drug on him


during a search, according to a
deputy's report.
According to the report, a
deputy approached Gary David
Garn of Callahan as he was seat-
ed in a green Jeep outside a
Freedom Drive residence with
the keys in the ignition about 10
p.m. Garn, 51, told deputies he
was "going home," but then said
he lived at the residence, the
report said.
Deputies said Garn was
unsteady on his feet, smelled
strongly of alcohol and had
watery, bloodshot eyes, but
Garn told deputies he drank
only two beers. Garn was arrest-
ed after refusing to take field
sobriety tests, the report said.
While searching Garn at
Nassau County Jail, deputies
reportedly found a small bag of
white powder, which later test-
ed positive for cocaine. Garn
said the drugs weren't his, the
report said.
Garn, of 43032 Freedom
Drive, Callahan, is,charged with
possession of cocaine, driving
under the influence and resist-
ing without violence.
Pill bust
A Hilliard man accused of
carrying a stash of prescription
drugs was arrested at a
Callahan gas station after
deputies found a bag of pills in
his sock early Saturday, accord-
ing to a deputy's report.
While deputies were check-
ing up on a Flash Foods station

sedan driven by TaJuane
Tamaldage Walker and carry-
ing Ashley Grace Butler, both of

hand the drugs to Butler, who
would hide them in her pants,

deputy stopped a vehicle match-
ing that description headed
north on US 1 near Old Dixie

Ban testing, driving?


TAMPA- Laws that ban tex-
ting while driving, improve teen
driver safety and require boost-
er seats for children align with
AAA's nationwide legislative
agenda to improve highway
safety to could help combat a
recent uptick in highway
deaths.
AAA's top safety priorities
in Florida for 2013 include:
Distracted driving: AAA in
2009 launched a national cam-
paign to ban text messaging
while driving in all 50 states.
Thirty-nine states now have
laws that prohibit drivers from
texting and AAA expects all 11
remaining states to consider
this legislation in 2013.
Distracted driving remains a
significant contributor to traf-
fic deaths. According to
NHTSA, nine percent of fatal.
crashes and 18 percent of injury
crashes in 2010 involved some
form of distraction. The major-
ity (92 percent) of Florida vot-
ers favors a ban on texting for
all drivers and enhanced penal-
ties for those who cause a crash
will testing.
Teen driver safety:
Graduated driver licensing
(GDL) is one of the most effec-
tive means of reducing teen
driving deaths. While every
state has some form of GDL,
nearly every state also has
room for further improvements.
Only six states have GDL sys-
tems that meet AAA's guide-


lines for nighttime limits, pas-
senger limits and practice
requirements. AAA encourages
Florida to strengthen license
requirements and ban the use
of wireless communications
devices for novice drivers.
Motor vehicle crashes remain
the leading cause of death for
teens, accounting for almost
one in three fatalities in this age
group. Safety experts credit
GDL laws for much of the 57
percent decline in traffic fatali-
ties for 16- and 17-year-old driv-
ers between 1995 and 2010.
.,Fout in five (82 percent) Florida
voters favor legislation limiting
cell phone usage while driving
for teens.
Booster seat laws: Despite a*[
proven ability to reduce injuries-.
and deaths for child passengers,
by 45 percent,child passenger
S.safety laws in 19 states fall short,
of safety experts' guidelines rec-
ommending that all children,
under age eight remain in
either a car or booster seat.
Florida still doe not have boost-
er seat requirements. Research
also shows that children ages
four to eight who live in states,
with booster seat laws are 39
percent more likely to be appro-
priately restrained than chil-
- dren' m states without such'
laws. .The majority of Florida
voters fayor booster seat,

The Florida panther is one
of the most endangered large
mammals in the world, with
wild populations estimated to
be less than 160 individuals in
a restricted range in southern
Florida. In partnership with the

COURT REPORT


Spring breakers beware:


Murder


trial


moves


ahead
News-Leader
A motion was filed in
Nassau County Court last
week to classify James Perry
Turn-age Jr., charged with
first-degree murder in the
death of Yulee resident Kirk
Westfall, as a habitual felony
offender and as a prison
release re-offender.
Turnage is set to stand
trial April 29 on the murder
charge and one count of
grand theft motor vehicle, for
allegedly stealing Westfall's
car, according to court
records. Jury selection is set
for April 26.
Turnage's ,
next pretrial
hearing is
scheduled for
March.7.
Westfall, *
51, was last
seen Oct. 8,
2010 at his Turnage
son's Yulee
High School
football game. The next day
his family found a pool of
blood in his home and called
police.
On Oct.. 10 the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office
announced itwas looking for
Turnage, who police believed
drove from Florida to South
Carolina before heading to
New Jersey.
Turnage had been stay-
ing on Westfall's property off
Radio Avenue after his
release from a one-year
prison sentence for criminal
mischief in August 2010.
The men reportedly met
through a mutual friend who
was trying to help the 'con-
victed felon get his life in
order.
On Oct. 14, Turnage was
arrested by FBI agents in
New Jersey after they said
they spotted him driving
Westfall's car.
Two months later, on
Christmas Eve, Westfall's
remains were found in a
wooded are., ;i ,und Pati i k,
S.C., in a shallow grave near
a home belonging to
Turnage's father, authorities
said.
An autopsy revealed that
Westfall's death was a homi-
cide, but the cause has not
been made public.
Turnage, 46, has pleaded
not guilty to the murder and
auto theft charges.
He remains at Nassau
County Jail on a bond of
$604,000.
The Nassau County State-
Attorney's Office has said
it will not seek the death
penalty in the case because
"there are not sufficient
aggravating factors." Public,
Defender Thomas Town-
send is representing
Turnage.

Pain drug abuse monitored


Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper is.encour-
aging broader use of the state's Prescription
Drug Monitoring Program.
The program was created in, 2009 by the
Legislature in an initiative to encourage safer pre-.
scribing of controlled substances and to reduce
drug abuse and di,:1-in I.i 1. illhin the state of
Florida. It created :i ,.I L,.a... to collect and
store prescribing and dispensing data for con-
trolled substances, .
The purpose is to provide the information col-
lected in the database to health care practition-
ers to guide their decisions in prescribing and
dispensing these highly-abused prescription
drugs.
Instead of visiting the usual pain manage-
ment clinics, individuals aire now going to den-
tists, walk-in clinics, emergency rooms, urolo-
gists, psychiatrists and ,tiher prn idi -. r', ry few


days to obtain small quantities of these potent
drugs in an attempt to go undetected.
"Some people seeking pain medications for
misuse or abuse are beginning to alter their"
tactics," said Leeper. "The PDMP can only be
effective if it is checked by medical profession-
als prescribing or dispensing these powerful
prescription drugs."
Currently, Florida requires that pharmacists
enter data into the PDMP each time a controlled
substance is dispensed, but neither medical
providers nor pharmacies have to consult data-
base records before writing or filling these pre-
scriptions.
The availability of the database as a patient
tool is instrumental in ensuring proper med-
ical intervention while stopping diversion, addic-
tion and the proliferation of potent pain pills on
our streets.

drink, drugs
Sheriff Bill Leeper announced that the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office will participate
in a statewide effort of the Florida Sheriff's
Association Operation Dry Spring that will
focus on the sale and possession of alcohol,
tobacco, and drugs -" ....Ii',:ll. synthetic
drugs) to and by underage youth.
The scheduled time of this operation, March
4 to April 7, is being held in conjunction with
spring break schedules ui i i.l ,,l..Ai the state -
allowing law enforcement officers to focus on
the potential heightened use of alcohol, tobac-
co and drugs by youth during this period.
Leeper said, "Deputies with the NCSO will
be conducting operations targeting businesses
who sell alcohol, tobacco ;n.l -;, ii,, i ,. drugs
to underage y6uth." This will be conducted
thioough random, undercover business checks.
"This initiative sends clear ii,: - ',_ Il we
are committed to the wellbeing of our children
- our most precious resource," Leeper added.
Last month Leeper announced that NCSO
narcotics deputies confiscated 334 packets of
synthetic cannabinoids from local convenience
stores, after Attorney General Pam Biondi enact-
ed an emergency rule outlawing 22 synthetic
drugs, commonly known as "bath salts," "K2,"
"herbal incense," "spice" or "fake weed." The
emergency rule designated these synthetic


are target
drugs as Schedule I controlled substances,
making the sale, manufacturing; delivery and
possession with intent to sell, manufacture or
deliver these drugs a third-degree felony.
After receiving additional complaints, on
Feb. 15 deputies returned to the Sunoco Gas
Station on SR 200 and seized 93 packets of
these illegal substances and arrested an indi-
vidual for possession of synthetic substances
with intent to sell.
Alcohol is the most commonly used and
abused drug among youth in the United States
and is responsible for more than 4,700 deaths
of underage youth every year. Underage drink-
ing is linked to a higher risk-of suicide and
. homicide, the abuse of other drugs, injury and
even death. Youth who use tobacco are more
likely to use alcohol and other drugs. According
to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, every day nearly 4,000 American
youth under the age of 18 smoke their first cig-
arette. Data from the 2012 Monitoring the
Future Survey indicates that 11.3 percent of
12th graders have used synthetic marijuana in
the past year.
Should you know of or encounter an illegal
substance being sold at a local establishment,
contact the Nassau County Sheriff's Office at
548-4084.

Journey 2
In Family Driven Softball
League action, Yulee Baptist
Church Team One took on
The Journey Church Team ,
Two in Saturday's game of
the week. The constant
encouragement by Yulee
Coach Jimmy Shelton has
helped Yulee win more games
in'just three weeks than it did
the entire season last year.
Journey Two started the
game fast.as leadoff hitter
Mike Mathis hit an inside-the-
park home run. Team Two
added another run in the sec-
ond inning when Bill Shealey
drove in Jamison Hudson.
Team Two took the score
to 5-0 when Mathis hit a
triple, followed by Stephen
Sloan's double and another
double by Perry Corbitt.
It took Yulee three innings
to get started on offense.
Virginia Constable started
the inning with a walk,
Matthew Musselwhite and
Pam Tomes each hit a single,
followed by a walk by Billy
Peacock and another single
by Aaron Keisler, all of which
crossed the plate to make the
score tied at five runs each.
With the game tied, Team
Two suffered a blow.as top
hitter Mathis had to leave the
game with an injury. Journey
pitcher Shealy put the team
on his back by hitting a dou-
ble to score in the fourth and
hitting a triple in the sixth.
.Yulee took the lead for the
first time in the game as Luis
Otero and Mark Barnes both
scored in the sixth inning. In
the final inning for Team
Two, Sloan answered with an
inside-the-park home run,
tying the score.
With Yulee's last at-bat,
Peacock hit a double arid
Shelly Cole-Heath, who was
hitless most of the day, drove
in Peacock to win 8-7.
In other-action Saturday,
Journey Team Three found
itself alone in first place as
First Baptist Church Blue and
The Carpenters House both
lost games.
To remain in first place,
Journey Three needed out-
standing defensive play from
from women's player of the
week, Brittany Allen, who
made two game-saving catch-
es against Springhill Baptist
Church in a 12-10 win. Matt
Thoi'nton hit four-for-four for
Team Three.
Memorial United Metho-
dist Church notched its sec-
ond win of the young season,
defeating Blackrock Baptist
Church 11-5. Blake Mills, Jon
Caloia, Brett Loucks and Matt
Costello each hit two-for-four
for MUMC.
Christwalk defeated Yulee
One 16-7 behind co-men's
player of the week Craig
Chamberlain as he hit four-
for-four with a double, a triple
and two out-of-the-park home
runs
First Baptist Gold defeated
Yulee Overflow 12-8. Darius
Prentice and Coach Jeff Schol
both hit four-for-four for
Team Gold.
The Journey Church
Team One demonstrated why
it was last year's league cham-
pions, knocking The
Carpenters House from the
unbeaten ranks by a score of
27-16. Damon Rowland,
Marcus Carter and co-player
-of the week Johnathan Ball
each hit four-for-four. Ball's
hits included a triple and
three home runs; one cleared
the center field scoreboard.
Five Points Baptist Church
defeated First Baptist Blue
21-11. Dillon Kelly and Rachel
Leary were both perfect at
the plate for Five POints.

fishing tournament over the
weekend. The first-place prize

sheep'shead and Alton Robey
took third with a 10.7-pound
sheepshead. Dylan Koller
captured junior angler honors
with an 8.6-pound
sheepshead.
Windy weather greeted
the some 450 boats that
entered in the event Saturday.
Many of'the winning
sheepshead were caught
either at the St. Marys or
Jacksonville rock jetties.
However, because of the. high
winds that gusted over 20
mph, few contestants were
able to fish the near offshore
sheepshead fish havens.
The popular event was
once again held from
Mayport, where some 14
sheepshead over the nine-
pound mark were weighed in.

The PGA Tour has come out

is not saying yet what it will do if
the ban comes into force. The rule-
making Royal and Ancient Club and United States
Golf Association are in a period of consultation at
the moment, but the PGA Tour's announcement
will probably give them real cause for thought,
especially as the PGA of-America are also against
the move. Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said,
"Our player advisory council looked at it twide. We
had the USGA come in and make a presentation to
a player meeting in San Diego and the USGA made
a presentation to our board. Essentially where the
PGA Tour came down was that they did not think
that banning anchoring was in the best interest of
golf or the PGA Tour."

NElWS-L.EADER/ FERNANDINA BEACH. FL


With a little aid, hearing magically restored


Another rite of passage. Not a
welcome one, but for the best. I have
joined the hearing aid club and now
able to hear. Yes, it was getting hard-
er and harder to hear, especially in
crowded, noisy rooins, but I was
managing. An intervention by my
three sons finally sent me to have
my hearing checked. We were gath-
ered for family Thaniksgiving. There
was constant commotion. We were a
large group young children, dogs,
television on, stop-start conversa-
tions. Frustrated by their having to
repeat everything they suggested
that, yes, there might be something
to be done about it. Yes, the dreaded
hearing aids.
Several years ago the Big Guy
and I made a joint appointment with
island audiologist Patty Shelly-
LoAhman to have our hearing


P


checked. We both
knew that we were
having trouble
communicating.
Either we were jusf
not listening atten-
tively or one of us
just might need
hearing aids. It was
time to do some-
FROM -thing. I was sure.
THE HE would be the
PORCH one to be awarded
hearing aids and I
would escape. Ever
Dickie competitive, there
Anderson was a certain ten-
sion after she com-


pleted the tests and we waited for
the results. Who had the worst hear-
ing? Big Guy won, or lost, depending
on your perspective. He actually won


and has enjoyed the benefits of hear-
ing aids
As Shelly-Lohman explained, the
gradual hearing loss that occurs as
you age is a common condition. An
estimated one-third of Americans
older than age 60 and one-half of
those older than age 85 have some
degree of hearing loss. Over time,
the wear and tear on your ears from
noise contributes to hearing loss by
damaging the cochlea, a part of your
inner ear. Doctors believe that
heredity and chronic exposure to
loud noises are the main factors that
contribute to hearing loss. You can't
reverse hearing loss.
It is only going to get worse as
Baby Boomers age and a lifetime of
noise pollution takes its toll. Hearing
is compromised when the wonder-
fully complicated and intricate hair


cells of the inner ear that interpret
sound vibrations as words, music or
other sounds don't grow back once
they are damaged. Men are more
likely to have problems earlier usu-
ally a decade before women,
because typically they have been
exposed to more and higher noise
levels. Like everything else, hearing
loss is becoming an equal'opportuni-
ty disability.
Shelly-Lohman patiently
explained each of the tests we had
taken and what they were able
to tell her about our hearing. She
showed tis diagrams of our
hearing patterns. As she compared
our tests, she noted that we both
had hearing loss, but Big Guy's
was "significant." Hearing loss is not
just about volume, It involves the
ears' inability to sort out complex


sounds in speech.
So back to see Shelly-l.ohman
and see if, yes, indeed, it was my
turn to get help. She tested my hear-
ing and it revealed that there had
been some additional loss and that
hearing aids might be a great
addition to my busy lifestyle. She
quickly di *-1,11. I all the misgivings I
had. The newer hearing aids are
very comfortable, and can hardly be
seen.
I encourage anyone who strug-
gles with their hearing to consider
learning more. It truly makes a dif-
ference in one's quality of life. Try it
- you'll like it.

Rescuing birds


Last week was the final sea
gull banding effort at Main
Beach, and it was fun to be
part of it. Overall more than a
dozen Fernandina Beach resi-
dents joined birder Jay Barry
during three bird-banding
sessions and now 10 laughing
gulls and one ring-billed gull
have new silver bracelets with
identifying numbers.
According to Jay, these were .
the first laughing, gulls band-
ed in Florida in 50 years, and
the first ring-billed gull ever
banded in the state.
In a few months Jay will be
back to band
some more.
But he is
unlikely to
find any
ring-billed
gulls on the
beach in the
summer.
S These birds,
WILD like our
WAYS white peli-
cans,
Forster's
Pat terns and
Foster-Turley other winter
species, will
be settled far north and
inland, fulfilling the breeding
part of their life cycle else-
where. But now, with any
luck, someone will be able to
read the tag on that ring-bill
and we will know exactly
where it turns up next!
Banding gulls is a hands-
on activity. The birds are first
lured into a nearly invisible
fine mesh "mist net" using
bread, or, better yet, Doritos.
But they are smart! As soon
as the first gull is captured,
the rest of the gulls become
wary and do not approach the
net. But if the "heavy guns" of
Doritos are brought into play,
it is too hard for-them to
resist the temptation. When
sqitabbling over this prize
breaks out among the gulls,
sometimes a bird gets dis-
tracted from the presence of
the net, and gets captured
next.
Once a bird is tangled in
the net, the team carefully
removes it, and one person
holds the bird, while another
measures its head-to-beak
length, and someone else
records the data. Then a
metal band is affixed to the
bed's leg and it is put in a bag
and.weighed Within a few ,
minutes the bird i.s leasedd
again to show off its new
bracelet to all its friends.


Interesting enough, though,
none of the banded birds
were again seen at Main
Beach apparently they now
steer cleiur of this area, where
"bad things" happen.
After last week's session, I
had another surprise in store
for me. I left the group and
took off on a long walk from
Main Beach to Fort Clinch
State Park. And then I saw it.
An injured loon was stranded
on the beach near the pier.
When I approached it called
out in its mournful loon voice,
and my heart melted. This
bird needed to be rescued
and if not by me, then who?
So I walked on into the
park, found OPS ranger
Hunter Sylvester patrolling
the parking lot and we teamed
up to locate a box to put the
bird in. Along the way he got
a call to help a camper resolve
a clothes washer problem so I
joined him for the ride. And,
there in the campground was
one of the bird volunteers just
returning from the bird band-
ing session. So, Bill Hough
and his wife Jill joined in the
rescue effort. Bill is a self-pro-
fessed "loon freak" from
Michigan and this was right
up his alley. Bill and Jill con-
tributed a cast-off towel to
wrap the bird in, and we were
off.
Back on'the beach, the
loon was patiently awaiting
our arrival. Loons, in fact, can-
not take off from land, so this
poor injured bird had no
choice but just to sit there
waiting for help. I tossed the
towel over the bird, and Bill
kept the loon's bill from harm-
ing me as I lifted the bird into
the box. In moments, Bill, Jill
and Hunter were on their way
down the beach-heading to
the parking lot. Beaks had
already been alerted*about
this new arrival and Bill and
Jill were happy to do the taxi
service down to BigjTalbot
Island. .
So a number of missions
accomplished, I happily '
walked the three-mile trek
alone back to ny parked car
at Main Beach. What a morn-
ing!
You just never know what
you will encounter on "just
another day in Paradise" on
our wonderful island.

Hi! This 2-year-old's name
is Sparky. He is a hound mix
with a beautiful white coat
with black spots scattered all
over him. He also has a
brindle patch over his left ear
and right ear. We think his
coloring makes him a very
unique and beautiful dog.
Sparky came to the shelter
back in September 2012. His
previous owner was unable to
keep him anymore but want-
ed to make sure he went to a
good home. He does get
along great with other dogs
and people. He is neutered,
microchipped and up-to-date
on all his shots, including his-
rabies vaccine. The only issue
is that he is heartworm posi-
tive, but we'have sponsors
that will help with the cost
regarding his treatment. He
is a very sweet and loving
companion. If you go to
www.petango.com or
www.petfinder.com, you can
see a video of Sparky interact-
ing with two of our wonderful
volunteers. Please come see'
him for yourself. Sparky is


waiting for his special some-
one. He is currently residing
at the Nassau County Animal
Services, 86078 License Road,
Yulee, 491-7440. We are open
for viewing of the animals
Tuesday through Friday from
11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and
Saturday 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
We are closed to the public
Sunday, Mondays and holi-
* days.


CATS ANGELS


Swan is a very pretty and
friendly black and white adult
female who is about 4 years
old. She is playful but also a
quiet girl who likes to sit back
and watch all the action going
on at the Adoption Center.
Swan has been with us at Cats
Angels for over a year but we
are hoping she finds her "for-
ever home" and family soon.
Cats Angels has adult cats of
every size and description
who have been with us far too
long and we are determined
to find safe and loving homes
for them this year. If you can
take responsibility for just
one animal in need, what a
difference it would make.
Visit our Adoption Center, our
website www.catsangels.com
or call 321-2267 to meet with
an Adoption Volunteer.
Visit the Thrift Store at
Cats Angels for a wide selec-
tion of gently-used home
items, decorations, furniture,
toys, jewelry, books and
more. Cats Angels is located
