Deep down, shrimp

ANGELA.DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


William Burbank III, named grand
marshal of the 50th Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival, is a third-generation
net maker with roots in the area that
go back to the 19th century on
Cumberland Island, Ga., where his
gl :i-dfat heir ., a,; born.
?*-i-in.-k.iig. .*hlhi'c i, hI_ 'fam ily-
business, goes back about 100 years,
when Billy Burbank's grandfather,
William "Pop" Burbank, began mak-
ing his own shrimp nets in 1915. Now
a producer of sport nets, the compa-
ny originally made nets for shrimpers,
but that portion of the business has
dwindled to almost nothing, much
like the shrimping industry itself.
Burbank's great-grandfather,
George Burbank, was.born in New
York State in 1865 and lived on
Cumberland Island before moving to
Jekyll Island and then to Brunswick,
Ga.
"My grandfather's father ran an
inn at High Point, on Cumberland
Island," Burbank says. At that time,
Cumberland was sparsely populated
and much of it was owned by the
Carnegie family, which built several
mansions on the secluded island. The
High Point district was a resort area
developed in the 1880s. The island is
now mostly.owned by the National
Park Service.
According to Burbank, his grand-
father started out as a Dilui-fishej ioan
around the Jekyll Isilla., area,
but began making i his nets
around 1915, lead of
Capt. Billy Cork c husetts.


"Pop" Burbank found that with these
nets, he was able to catch more
' hi'hin p than an\ .r-1. I- .. so he start-
-'7than-hioning hi ii I i., theirr fisher-'
-men. He got so busy that he got his
brother-in-law Bluff Peterson to run
his boat, called "Playmate."
Pop Burbank began traveling to
Thunderbolt, Ga., for six months out
of the year to make nets for a fisher-
man there, bringing the family along
with him. In 1932, Pop opened Bill's
Market at the Centre Street docks,
which also was the venue for
American Legion meetings and fea-
tured a pot-bellied stove around which
everyone gathered. He also ran a
ferry service to Cumberland Island.
In the 1940s, Pop Burbank moved
the business to' another building
downtown. According to Billy
Burbank, Pop was generous with local
residents having hard times, giving
them chickens, groceries and other
items. He sold that market in 1942
and purchased a beach house at 185
South Fletcher Ave., which is now
owned by a cousin. The present net
company was incorporated in 1957.
Burbank has returned to making
a few shrimp nets after a hiatus of a
few years, but that is only about 1
percent of the business, which now
concentrates on sports nets such as
baseball backstops. His company is
expanding into making soccer nets,


Burbank says.
"The shrimp-net techniques take a
little longer to learn." he says. "Therre
are more iniric'ae details of the
tapers. T'l understand it, you need a
lot of math and you have to do a lot of
counting and know geometric
shapes."
"Some schools overseas teach net-
making," Burbank says. "In Europe
they use flumes to test the nets."
Employees who work at Burbank
Sport Nets learn on the job, and come
in with no skills to begin with.
Burbank looks for people with good
hand-eye coordination and a mechan-
ical aptitude, and says he is'very
pleased with the net-makers he has
now. They include Eli Rowe, Anthony
Forster, Nick Forster, Garrett Dees,
Brandon Lee, Justin Finley and David
,Butler.
Although Burbank has not worked
as a commercial shrimper, he keeps
up with the latest industry news and
is developing a TED (turtle excluder
device) net that will be more efficient
in eliminating bycatch, or sea life unin-
tentionally caught in the nets.
Burbank also notes there was
more shrimp caught on the east coast
of Florida than on the west coast dur-
ing the 2012 season, to the tune of 10
million more pounds. This was

County adopts stricter island tree law


GARRET'T PELICAN
News Leader


Three months after a devel-
oper legally stripped an Amelia
Island property of its trees to
make way for an enlarged con-
venience store therl, the
Nassau County Commission
adopted a revamped tree law
intended to prevent it from hap-
pening again.
"We closed the loophole that
(exempts) pre-developed prop-
erties from the code," Planning
Director Peter King told com-
missioners of the measure, the
product of months of discus-
sion and collaboration among
county officials, residents and
developers, during Monday's
public hearing.
The commission unani-
mously passed the amendment
4-0, encouraging preservation
of native canopy trees in unin-
corporated Amelia Island and
punishing those whoharm pro-
tected trees, drawing applause
from scores of green-clad resi-
dents in .' attendance,
Commissioner Steve Kelley
was absent on medical leave.
SThe amendment, support-
ed by residents and advocates
and developers alike, previ-
ously received unanimous
approval from the Planning &
Zoning Board at a public hear-
ing on April 2.
One development, located
near the property that inspired


the amendment, had even been
waiting on the board's passage
of the law before it moved
ahead, King told ta relxrter dur-
ing an intermission.
"You know you've done a
good job if a developer's waiting
for the pew ordinance to take
effect this time," King said.
The law wis sparked by out-
raged, residents, including Lyn
Pannone of Summer Beach,
frustrated by the legal demoli-
tion on Jan. 21 of about 30 live
oaks at First Coast Highway
and South Fletcher Avenue to
make way for construction of a
larger convenience store there.
"The public was very angry -
they still are," Pannone told the
board.
The amendment would, in
addition to closing the loophole
that allowed that clearing, pro-
vide incentives for developers
to save trees of a certain size
and make it a misdemeanor
crime to harm protected trees
and no longer exempt pre-exist-
ing developments, King said.
Code enforcement also could
suspend building permits for
developers who bi-each the law
and harm protected trees.
The amendment applies
only to developments in unin-
corporated' Amelia Island.
Single-family homes are
exempt. Trees protected by the
law include live oaks, magnolias
and a host of others.
Violators could be charged


with a second-degree misde-
meanor crime, punishable by
a $500 fine and/or 60 days in
jail, said King. Enforcement of
the penalty would be dealt with
by the state of Florida.
A handful of residents urged
commissioners to adopt the
measure and help protect the
remaining trees native to the
island.
"We need this ordinance
because the trees are some of
the most precious assets on
Amelia Island," said Pannone.
"Tourism depends heavily on
the natural beauty of the island;
Nassau County's tax base ben-
efits greatly from island
tourism."
As well as the financial ben-
efits, trees also offer natural
benefits, such as giving people
shade, providing them With
wind breaks and preventing soil
erosion, Pannone added.
"Protecting the environment
is critical, critical. You can't-
duplicate it," resident Raymond
Hasley told the board.
When the original tree law
was' being formed, the com-
mittee responsible did not con-
sider the possibility of devel-
opers clearing existing
developments, said resident
Phil Scanlan, a member of the
original committee. "We did our
best, but we basically antici-
pated we were only protecting
undeveloped properties," he
said.

tree law, present county Planning Director Peter King with a green "Amelia Island"
hat.


Scanlan heaped praise on
King and Planning Board Chair
Tom Ford for their willingness
to include public input, and pre-
sented the planning director
with a green "Amelia Island"
ball cap for his "creative" work.
"I have a tip of the hat for Peter

said.
Fifth-generation resident
Bailey Struss implored com-
missioners to pass the amend-
ment, citing the story of his
great-grandmother and the oak


tree -dubbed "Kate's Tree" in
the middle of Ash Street- that
she fought to protect more than
120 years ago. That tree still
stands.
"If it was necessary back
then.to protect an oak tree on
Ash Street, how much more so
is it now, you know, when we
hardly have anything left?"
Struss said.
Representatives of Omni
Amelia Island Plantation and
the Amelia Island Plantation
Community Association also


threw their support behind the
measure.
"We believe this tree ordi-
nance will help our property
values," Joe Bunting, executive
director for AIPCA, said, adding
that it would boost "quality of
life" for residents too.
"I would certainly urge to
you approve this ordinance
tonight," Bill Moore, director
of planning and development
for the Plantation, told the
board.

After successfully operat-

in Murray Hill for three years,
Ed Owens and Mark Busher
were looking to expand into

Yulee looked like the per-

opened Crazy Egg in the

Busher is quick to point out
they are not a chain or a fast-

"We try to provide top qual-
ity food at a fair price. We pre-
pare your meals to order and
we strive to do so with friend-
ly, professional service," he
*said.
Their menu features break-
Sfast items all day including pan-
cakes, waffles, homemade
Scorned beef hash, French toast
and, of course, eggs made sev-
eral different ways.
"Our variety of eggs bene-
dict, omelets, homemade
chicken salad, our crazy shep-
herd's pie and crazy chicken
pot pie as well as our home-
mnade chicken and dumplings
aren't your conventional dish-

$2 billion in treasure off



coast of Amelia Island?


When Doug Pope looks out
across the Nassau Sound, he
sees more than simply the ordi-
nary eye.
He sees the white sand of
Bird Island in the distance. He
sees the craggy tree roots of
Big Talbot Island to the south.
And he sees the choppy con-
fluence of the Nassau Sound
feeding into the Atlantic Ocean.
Aside from the aesthetic
riches, he believes there is
something else more tangible
and valuable off the southern-
most shores of Amelia Island.
Buried treasure. And lots of it.
Like enough to fill the hull of a
Spanish carrack such as the San
Miguel,
Pope believes the San
Miguel made it up to Amelia
Island in efforts to escape a hur-
ricane of 1715 that downed the
other ships in its fleet. Or else it
crashed to the south along the
40 miles of the eastern shore-
line between here and St.
Augustine.
But there is substantial proof
of its whereabouts through
remnants found near the south
end of Amelia Island. Some of
the findings include a jewelers'
furnace (that came up in a
shrimper's niet) and cannons
and gold coins. All circumstan-
tial evidence of a Spanish ship
having been nearby.
'The San Miguel is actually
one of the richest treasure ships
yet to be found. Its cargo is esti-
mated to be worth a cool $2 bil-
lion.
"Absolutely," Pope says with
a deadpan expression when
asked if he believes the San
Miguel treasure is out there
somewhere. So Pope and

r tious plans to
Search for it
this summer.

TEVE' three-legged
ST V'S Polly Lvessel
MARKET to blow holes
PLACE in the sandy
floor border-
ing the south
Steve Nicklas end of Amelia
Island in
pursuit of uncovering the buried
treasure.
Treasure hunters are a
unique breed. They hold stead-
fast to ironclad convictions that
gold and silver and gems are
out there; it's just a matter of
time and technology and testing
to sift through the sand accu-
mulated over hundreds of years.
However, the state of Florida
has restricted their craft for
years now. Difficulty in obtain-
ing permits and in laying a claim
to a treasure have impeded
many of their activities. But new
Gov. Rick Scott has charted a
new course.
In fact, Scott welcomed Pope
and other treasure hunters to a
dinner at the governor's man-
sion recently in celebration of
Columbus's first visit to Florida
500 years ago. Scott praised
Pope and others for their work
in helping to piece together the
state's rich history.
So Pope feels an urgency
and an opportunity. "We want
to strike while the iron is hot,"
Pope says in regard to seeking
permission to search for the San


Miguel treasure. And tradition-
ally May 1 is the beginning of
treasure season, as the oceans
calm.
Amelia Research also has
opened a fascinating nonprofit
museum on South Eighth Street
in Fernandina Beach to house
and show off its findings. The
local treasure group has also
collaborated on some research
with Mel Fisher's family mem-
bers.
Pope's focus remains here.
"We're going to hit Amelia
Island pretty hard," he says.
The history of the San
Miguel'is also fascinating. The
ship was faster than the rest of
its fleet and it was believed to
be farther to the north than the
others when the hurricane hit.
Sixty wealthy passengers were
aboard along with a cargo of
tobacco and treasure headed
for Spain.
Spain was in dire need of
funds after the- War of
Succession. So one of the rich-
est treasure fleets was assem-
bled, which included the San
Miguel. In the years following
1715, some of the other ships
and their bounties were found
by Spanish search parties. But
not the San Miguel.
Pope wants to find it. He
believes he has the knowledge
and the equipment and the man-
Spower to do it. He can feel it -
and see it.
Steve Nicklas is a financial
advisor with a major U.S. firm
who lives on Amelia Island. His
business columns appear in sev-
eral newspapers in North
Florida. He can be reached at

with funding of the ferry connecting Mayport
Village to A1A on Heckscher Drive in Duval
County.
The future of the St. Johns River Ferry serv-
ice has been in question since JaxPort announced
it would cease subsidizing the operation last Sept.
30, citing financial concerns, including millions of
dollars in capital repairs needed. Since then pr9-
ponents of the ferry have engaged in private
fundraising efforts intended to help support the
ferry, which has been unable to meet its expens-
es with paid ridership income.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Straight backtalkon RVpark
Several years ago, my husband and 1 pur-
chased a home in Isle I)e Mai. We chose Amelia
Island because of the sense of community and the
pride that appeared in the residents whenever we
were visiting. We noted that there were neigh-
borhoods rather than high-density condos/rental
property and that the island had a feel of "home"
rather than a tourist trap. We chose Isle de Mai
for several reasons, one being the investment
value in a home in a quality subdivision.
I am greatly disturbed about the possibility
that a high-density RV park might be bordering
or near our neighborhood. I don't question that
some of the points made in the recent article
about the quality of the people owning RVs are
accurate ("Straight talk about proposed RV
resort," April 17).
The reality is having that many additional
people parked in a small geographical area is just
the same as having a high-density rental devel-
opment in our backyard. As nice as the RV park
might be, high-density rental property will hurt
our subdivision's home values. I do not think
this is the best plan'for the future of Amelia
Island and hope the decision makers think about
the long-term future of the development of the
island.
Barbara Lunsford
Fernandina Beach

I am a resident of Isle de Mai. I am all for
growing our local economy and boosting rev-
enue for our beautiful island but I do not want it
in the form of an RV park in my backyard. I
would like Mr. (Bob) Allison ("Straight talk about
proposed RV resort," April 17) to address the
issue of property value. Can you guarantee that
:my property value will not go down if you build
your RV park in our subdivision's back yard? It
"'does not matter if it's quiet, high class or full of
retired professionals an RV park is an RV park
and.it will have a negative effect on our proper-
ty. I would not have purchased a home in this
neighborhood if there were an RV park next door
regardless of class.
- You cannot guarantee that people who own
Class A RV's are going to be upstanding citizens.
'Wealth guarantees nothing. You cannot guaran-
tee quiet no matter how many trees you leave on
the property. The proposed plan that you have
now taken down off your website showed a mere
25-foot buffer between the back of our subdivision
- the beginning of your park that's a little too
,lose for comfort and is most likely why you
:have now taken the plan off your site. What hap-
Ipens if you build the park and it fails. Owning a
Class A RV with 35, 000 miles on it doesn't make
'you an expert on running a Class A RV resort.


What happens if you are forced to lower your
Class A standards? If so, your RV paradise
becomes an average noisy everyday RV park
right in our backyard s. I am sure you can lind a
more suitable location lor your desired park that
does not compromise our residential property val-
ues in order for you to line your pockets.
Corinne Broyles
Fernandina Beach

It is impossible for the News-Leader to grant
equal space to every opponent of the proposed
recreational vehicle resort on Amelia Island by
developer Bob Allison (who consumed almost
60 column inches of the paper's April 17 edition
to plead his case). I wish to challenge, therefore,
his three biggest canards and/or non-sequiturs:
"Fact #1: There are h hundreds of RV resorts all
over Florida .. (but) no RV resort on Amelia
Island."
That is true, but most af those "resorts" are
eyesores and public nuisances to their unfortu-
nate full-time neighbors who reside in more
expensive and substantial permanent (i.e., non-
gypsy-type) housing. Amelia Island has no RV
parks for good reason. We are not interested in
becoming the Florida version of squalid, tasteless
and traffic-choked Myrtle Beach, S.C.
"Fact #4: The best area on Amelia Island for
an RV resort is somewhere along the Amelia
Island Parkway."
No, the best area is not even on Amelia Island
but instead on the largely undeveloped mainland
of Nassau County, stretching westward for 10
miles from Amelia River bridge to 1-95, with count-
less thousands of pinewood acres that could
accommodate every RV sold in America since
1960 in total and well-deserved isolation from
civilization. Furthermore, does Mr. Allison hon-
estly believe thefirst thing that should be seen by
jet-set visitors to Fernandina's executive airport
and patrqns of the annual Concours d'El6gance
is his rustic, sprawling RV development, peopled
by old folks (like me) dangerously tossing horse-
shoes?
"Fact #6: (after listing six of his previous real-
estate developments in Nassau County) .. One
feature of my work that is obvious in every one
of these projects is that the land's existing forest
remains completely intact."
Really, Mr. Allison? You left the "existing for-
est" (i.e., every single tree) "completely intact"
(i.e., not even one tree knocked down and uproot-
ed to make way for your real-estate develop-
ment)? How does one build multiple homes any-
where in tre-studded Nassau County and Amelia
Island by leaving the "existing forest completely
intact"? Were you building regular houses for
human beings or acorn-sized bed-and-breakfast
suites for squirrels?

Ditict danagery
District Manager


As a free-enterpriser, I wish Mr. Allison good
luck but only in a bucolic, isolated neck of the
woods where he will not be able to destroy anoth-
er community's reputation and his neighbors'
honestly earned property values.
Mike Thompson
Fernandina Beach
* *
Mr. Allison was given quite the opportunity to
explain his plans for an upscale RV resort on our
island ("Straight talk about proposed RV resort,"
April 17). He seems to feel his resort will be fre-
quented by a certain type and while that may be
his objective, it's highly unlikely. I am afraid it will
turn into an eyesore. I don't want to look at trail-
ers and I don't want that to be visitors' first impres-
sion either. Anyone headed to The Ritz-Carlton,
Amelia Island, Omni Amelia Island Plantation or
parts south will drive by these trailers. I cannot
imagine that is positive in any way for tourism and
therefore I see the RV park as having the poten-
tial for a negative economic impact. And what
about the economic impact for the city when my
house and those of my neighbors plummet in
value and are taxed at a lesser rate? I don't believe
this proposed luxury RV park will evolve as
planned.
I think Mr. Allison has a vision that borders on
fiction. Is he going to turn away trailers that don't
meet his upscale criteria? I doubt it. Are only
genteel,,educated, quiet, early to bed, horseshoe-
playing geriatrics in million-dollar vehicles allowed
to check-in? It's almost laughable.
But it's not laughable because it could happen.
I hope enough concerned citizens can band
together to see that it doesn't.
Jack and Phyllis Sipes
Fernandina Beach

The construction of an RV park on Amelia
Island Parkway would be a terrible blight on our
beautiful island. As an Isle de Mai subdivision res-
ident, and local author, I strongly object to Mr.
Allison's assertion that the RV's will "disappear
behind the landscape and be completely out of
mind and out of sight" ("Straight talk about pro-
posed RV resort," April 17). If you live on Spanish
Way, as we do, the sound of hundreds of vehicles
entering and exiting the park, the noise and air
pollution, the traffic and the devaluing of our
homes is not worth the 50 jobs he says will be cre-
ated.
Mr. Allison's claims that "Most RV resorts
are so quiet that you can hear a pin drop," and
there would "never (be) any generator noise"
are ridiculous.. His declaration that "I have no
intention of destroying any forests to build an
RV resort" is insane. How can he build hundreds
of RV sites, as well as all the amenities described,
without,destroying the forest?
His scare tactics stating this land could be
used for "truck stops... tattoo parlors, liquor
lounges" offend me. And if he is so concerned
about the traffic congestion on the island, why
doesn't he build his park off-island where there
is plenty of land available throughout Nassau
County?
Let's keep Amelia Island the enchanting place
we love and not devalue our experience here
with hundreds of iecreation'vehicles'. There are :
plenty of other lodging options available without
this monstrosity.
E. Louise Jaques
Fernandina Beach
* *
As a five-year resident of Isle de Mai, I must
express my strong objections to the RV park
planned for Amelia Island Parkway. For several
reasons, including the beauty of the island and
approach to the high-end resort areas, the park
must not be allowed in the area. Being able to
evacuate the island in a timely manner is also a
grave concern for residents and visitors.
There are enough tacky, broken-down trailers
and trailer parks on the island already. Not that
Mr. Allison is planning a tacky development, but
the sight of RVs and trailers is not appealing to
many people.
Mr. Allison is a businessman trying to make
a living: I understand that. There are so many
other areas off island that would not impact our
safety and security and still be close to the beach
and island attractions.
I request that Mr. Allison look into these areas
before trying to force an unwanted, home value-
reducing development, as well as possible safe-
ty hazard on the residents/taxpayers of Isle de
Mai/Amelia Island.
Carolyn Greene
Fernandina Beach

After reading Bob Allison's "viewpoint"
("Straight talk about proposed RV resort," April
17) the lyrics "they paved paradise and put up a


parking lot" written by Joni Mitchell came to
mind. Ultimately that is all an RV park is; it is a
parking lot. What makes it worse is that this
parking lot will be covered iri huge metal vehicles
with satellite dishes sticking out, hauling anoth-
er vehicle behind the RV and burning up precious
fuel to the tune of 5 mpg. They will be trampling
our delicate island, eliminating more trees and
precious habitat that attracts endangered species.
The ecosystem needed to support the migrating
birds, butterflies and animals which attracts
tourists and photographers from across the world
will be damaged forever.
"Dor't it,always seem to go that you don't
know what you've got till it's gone. They paved
paradise and put up an" RV parking lot.
Allison's statements are headlined as an opin-
ion and a viewpoint. Yet Allison lays out what he
calls a set of facts. Facts are absolutes; they are
not opinions. Facts do not include words such as
"mostly" and "could" or "I thought". His so-called
"fact piece" is laden with hyperbole and influ-
enced at its origins by the opinions of a man
who wants to make money at the cost of a beau-
tiful island and its residents. He wants to pave.par-
adise and put up a parking lot,
He says that this would be a place where
"lights would mostly be out by 10'p.m." Mostly?'
Which is it? Out or not out?
He says "most" RV parks are quiet. "Most"?
If this is fact please give us the actual percentage
of quiet RV parks. Speaking of quiet I live on
Spanish Way. This RV park will back up to my
immediate back yard. If Allison were to stand on
the property he wants to forever change he
would hear all of the noise associated with the air-
port. In addition he would also hear the dogs
barking at the Nassau Humane Society. He would
also hear, as I do, the ball hitting the bat as fam-
ilies play ball at the park near the airport. He
would hear the joyous cheers of happy families
attending sports events. He would also hear the
happy exclamations of those who parachuted
directly over this area. That is how far and how
clearly the sound carries here. It travels across
the Parkway and down Bailey Road. I shudder to
think of all the noise resulting from this pro-
posed RV park.
This RV park was proposed recently in a near-
by neighborhood on the island but it was sent
packing. It was refused. It was made clear that we
do not want an RV park here. If residents don't
want an RV park on the island they don't want
an RV park on the island! What part of "no" does-
n't Allison understand?
My family and I have been coming to visit
Amelia Island for 16 years because we love it
here. Eighteen months ago we sold our home in
Georgia and moved here. Sadly, some of the
changes to the island since we bought a home
here have changed the appearance of what we
loved about the island. All the stately oak trees
gone from the Harris Teeter area, all the trees
gone from Amelia Parkway. On Amelia Parkway
because so many trees were removed we now
have to look at ugly commercial buildings and
have much more noise coming from the busi-
nesses and airport. And now Allison wants to
build an RV park right in my back yard! Building
this RV:park will devastate the valu&bf'otor 1h6ne
and all the homes in Isle de Mai. Should we pave"
paradise to make money for Allison but ruin
property values for hundreds of residents?
I wish "a big yellow taxi" would drive this
bad idea right off the island! Please do not pave
paradise to put up an RV parking lot.
Gail E. Pfoh

If his RV Park is not approved for the Amelia
Island Parkway parcel, Mr. Allison is stating that
the Parkway property could be used for "sever-
al commercial retail strip centers and big-box
stores" and that its zoning would "allow for truck
stops, gas stations, outdoor theaters, conven-
ience stores, drive through restaurants, auto
repair facilities, tattoo parlors, liquor stores and
more" ("Straight talk about proposed RV resort,"
April 17).
Should the above'happen, the Amelia Island
Parkway would have to be renamed as it would
no longer qualify as such.
As a resident of Isle de Mai, I am opposed to
the RV park because I don't see how the existing
trees and vegetation can avoid being destroyed
to make room for all of the roads and parking
pads and buildings.,
Since the parcel is to be leased, not pur-
chased, what happens if the RV park business
plan doesn't succeed? Are we left with a partial-,
ly denuded forest with -roads to nowhere and
empty parking pads?

In one word

In the movie, "The Graduate," D)usin
Hoffman's character hears one very important
word from his prospective father-in-law,
"Plastics." To Hoffman, the word summarizes
his future boring so in order to muffle the
lecture and advice he takes a deep breath and
descends to the bottom of the pool.
Well, I'm going to use a word that, to many,
will be just as boring as plastics: infrastructure
- roads, parking spaces, parks, etc. Unlike in DEi
"The Graduate," this won't be a lecture or any- D
thing remotely resenibling advice, no, this is AR

Here's the problem and I've written, spo-
ken, debated this many, many times: when
increasing numbers of people compete for
scarce infrastructure, and improvements to
that infrastructure are limited or prohibited by
physical realities (we live on an island, after
all), then quality of'life will be diminished. It's
the old economics "law of diminishing
returns" applied to a fixed land area (our city;
our island) and an ever-increasing population
competing for scarce resources within that
fixed land area.
Yet rational decision-makers ignore
this basic law and work very hard to
attract more and more people to this place,
this wonderful place, this still wonderful
place. My plea is that these decision makers
keep in mind the impacts on quality of life.
When does traffic become so bad that
islanders start to notice and complain? When
does a lack of parking dissuade a family from
bothering to come to an area? When does the
inability to access traditional public areas; par-
ticularly the beach, start to affect local fami-
lies?
When these things happen and there's a
real political risk regarding continuing to
ignore the problems of infrastructure, then,
maybe something will get done. Just what, I
don't.know how can streets that can't be
widened be widened? How can parking spaces
be created in an area already covered over by
buildings and asphalt?
My plea has been consistent through the
years, since 1972: let's do something before
this place, this wonderful place, this still won-
derful place becomes this once wonderful
place.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Countyguile
Two front-page articles in the April
19 News-Leader remind us quite dra-
matically of the duplicity, guile and
hypocrisy that is standard operating
procedure in Nassau County govern-
ment
Th6 first is the unbelievable news
that the county is not enforcing its
building codes, or at least not going
after those who ignore code violations.
Some $1 million in code violation fines
are uncollected, reports Bill Beck,
chairman of the Code Enforcement
Board, and County Attorney David
Hallman gives an "I couldn't care less"
shrug.
Hallman, who is known for issuing
questionable legal opinion to further
his ownagenda, refused to explain his
inexplicable position as he hid behind
his inscrutable legal opinion when
asked for clarification by the News-
Leador.-Thequestion thakhangs inthe
air unanswered is, what Is'his agenr-
da?
SThe second report concerned a
reprise of the "outdoor merchant" issue
surrounding the sale of shrubs -and
other plants at the Villages of Amelia
Shopping Center in Yulee. The tem-
porary plant sale was permitted despite
violation of a county law that requires
a 90-day advance permit request.
Growth Management Director Peter
King, who also knows how to slice a
salami, says the law was ignored
because it is not "reasonable."'
In both cases we have unelected
officials overruling laws passed by the
county commission. Where were they
when the laws were passed? That was
the time for them to object. Instead
they have selectively decided when to
ignore the law.
The clue to what's behind these
two issues appears on page 3 of the
April 19 News-Leader under the head-
line "Campaign contributions." This
sidebar to the "outdoor sales" article
reports campaign contributions to
county commissioners by Tony
Sleiman, one of Northeast Florida's
biggest developers and owner of
Villages of Amelia. Sleiman and his
henchmen and their wives have
made thousands of dollars of contri-
butions that have helped commission-
ers get elected and remain in office.
For example, in 2012 Commissioner
Walter "Jr" Boatright received more
than $2,000 from Sleiman and his
cronies (Sleiman's business address
was used by multiple contributors).
Commissioner Steve Kelley in 2010
received at least $1,000 from those
who listed Sleiman's address.
Commissioner Pat Edwards also ben-
efited from Sleiman's largess.
Both Hallman and King owe their
jobs to the commissioners. In the
recent past department heads that
bucked the county commission were
either fired or forced out. So it is rea-
sonable to believe that when King
decides to ignore a law that would have
prevented. Sleiman's associatL from
opening an outdoor plant emporium,
and Hallman says code violation fines
cannot be collected, the commission is
behind it.
A piece of missing information is
who the code violation liens were
placed against. Could it be that Sleiman
is one of them? Is that Hallman's agen-
da, to protect the commission's bene-
factor?
The large parcel that now includes
Sleiman's shopping center was once
known as Nassau Center, a planned
development that was supposed to be
75 percent non-commercial. The com-


mission ignored the law that estab-
lished Nassau Center to permit
Sleiman to build his shopping center.
Further, Sleiman and his lawyer prom-
ised the county during hearings on the
development that the taxpayer would
not have to pay a penny for required
infrastructure including road improve-
ments. The county did not hold
Sleiman to that promise.
In his rationale opposing collection
of code violation fines by the Code
Enforcement Board, Hallman refers
to an "appearance of conflict of inter-
est."
Hallman should pay more attention
to his own'words. So should King, his
partner in guile.

On April 8, my mom called me say-
,:ing shewas-baving a lottofchest pain,
'Thanks to my co-wot'kers at Baptist
Nassau GE Lab, I was able to leave
work in a matter of seconds and get to
my mom's house in a few minutes.
Before I arrived, she had taker an
aspirin and was lying down.
I called 911 and the Fernandina
Beach Fire Department arrived in less
than five minutes. They were able to
transport my mom in a matter of min-
utes and we arrived at the Baptist
Nassau emergency room. The team-
work in that ER was amazing. People
coming from all areas of the hospital
rushed in to help my mom. They were
all focused on ohe thing and that was
my mom.
After all tests were done we were
notified that "Moms" was going to be
transported by "Life Flight" to Baptist
Downtown. With 60 minutes from
onset of chest pains, my mom was in
the cath lab at Baptist in Jacksonville
having her procedure. The doctor told
me if it wasn't for the speed and effi-
ciency involved, she might not have
recovered.
Thanks to the FBFD, Baptist
Nassau ER staff, Dr. Woodward, chap-
lain, respiratory, security, hospitalvol-
unteers, Life Flight, Dr. Dildreto and all
the staff at Baptist Downtown, my mom
is alive and well today. Thank you all for
saving my mom, Harriotte Hurley.

Thankyou Rayonler
I would like to congratulate all of the
recipients who were recognized at the
28th annual Volunteer Recognition
Luncheon. Last year it was my honor
to be nominated by my employer,
Family Support Services, and awarded
the Rayonier Foundation Involved
Good Citizen Award. I was humbled to
be recognized by one of the strongest
contributors to our county, Rayonier. As
an employer in our county they are a
prime example of giving back to your
community with your time, talent and
resources.
You will find employees of Rayonier
on many of our nonprofit boards and
involved with their families and church-
es as they participate in activities from
Council on Aging, YMCA to youth
sport leagues. Every year Rayonier
sets and exceeds its goal as their
employees contribute to the United
Way. As noted in the News-Leader (April
19) they have contributed more than
$511,900 to local charitable organiza-
tions. As a member of the Nassau
County School Board it has been my
pleasure to recognize the contribu-

Thanks to Bealls
On April 3, Emma Love Hardee
Elementary celebrated National
Walking Day by walking 1,221 miles.
Along with this, the school collected $1
donations from students to go towards
buying shoes for homeless children
in Nassau County.
On Wednesday, I went shoe shop-
ping at Bealls with the $840 our school
had collected. I explained why I was
there to Michelle and she went out of
her way, above and beyond the call of
duty, to help me. She provided a large
cart for me to put the shoes on, she
searched in the back for extra sizes
and colors and she provided me with
a calculator to keep track of how much
I was spending.
Apparently, Wednesday was my
lucky day Bealls was having a shoe
sale, and they had a $10 off coupon in
the paper, plus seniors received an
additional 15 percent off, and since I
applied for a Bealls charge card, I
received an another 25 percent off. To
top this all off, Michelle and the cashier,
Teddie, rang up each pair of shoes sep-
arately so that I could receive the $10
off for every pair of shoes. So instead
of paying $40 for each pair, with all of
thle discounts, I paid $20.46 for almost
every pair. I know this exact amount
because I paid it 44 times.
Michelle and Teddie were won-
derfully patient as it took us over an
hour to check out. However, due to
their kindness and Bealls generosity,
we were able to purchase twice
as many shoes for the homeless
children in Nassau County. So a special
thank you to Bealls, Michelle and


Teddie for your support.

Thanks Leadership
Nassau
On behalf of the,seniors, employ-
ees, volunteers and the members of
the board of directors, I would like to
publicly and sincerely thank the mem-
bers of the current class of Leadership
Nassau. As part of their program, the
class chose the Council of Aging of
Nassau County to perform a day of
community outreach. Saturday, April
13, a large group of the class mem-
bers came out and put in some long
hours on our behalf.
Led by our friend at the chamber of
commerce, Lynne Starling, the group
grabbed brushes and began painting
the Senior Center as well as two offices.
Others pressure washed the porch and
all the porch furniture. A small group
took to planting spring flowers, trim-
ming shrubs and spreading an entire
pallet of donated Cyprus mulch. (An
additional thanks to Fernandina Mulch
& Stone.)
From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. the group
labored away on our behalf. The group
Swas so enthusiastic the time simply
flew by! A special thanks to our new lit-
tle friend, Lucy Ledesma, daughter of
Leah Ledesma, who joined mom and
pitched in a full day's work helping
with the flowers. She's a true delight to
work with!
If one needed another reason to
love living and working in the
Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island,
Yulee-area, Leadership Nassau would
be it. Their spirit of community and
willingness to reach out and help
should be recognized and applauded.
Thank you Lynne and Leadership
Nassau, as our Fernandina Beach
Senior Center has never looked more
attractive despite the parking lot con-
struction going on nearby.

'Atrocious' golf course
I live in Maine and am down here
on vacation for the next six days. We
are staying with my sister-in-law in
Fernandina Beach and I played the
north and south Courses at Fernandina
Beach Golf Course this afternoon. The
clubhouse and grille room people were
very friendly as was the starter, But
after reading the News-Leaderon April
19, I feel that I need to be heard.
The best way I can describe the
condition of the course is to describe
it the way I did when I was in the grille
room after 18 and a fellow golfer named
"John," whom I did not know, asked me
about the condition of the course. I
responded in all honesty- it was "atro-
cious." I furthered that comment by
saying "the price was right" ($20 fort
walking 18), "the location was great'"
(how could you beat a block from the
beach) but the tee boxes, fairways and
greens were, as I said earlier, "atrow
cious." As a golfer, there is really no
other word that describes it. It is th6
only word that seems to fit.
Then I read in the News-Leadee
about the committees being formed
and the comments about how the
course, is in the "best condition ever'
and I have to say that the person say;
ing this must have an ulterior motive 0o
is being paid to state this because as
much as 1 wanted to like this place, it
was in horrible condition. Mind you, I
wanted to go play another nine just
because of location and kinship with a
fellow golfer whom I didn't know, buf
the conditions were awful.
I will play it again before 1 leavd
town but only because of the great lxeI
ple and the great price. It appears to be
a great tract of land but it also appear'S
to be a great tract of land that is com-
pletely neglected and not cared for at
all. Billy Casper golf should "do it right"
or not do it at all, and it seems they are
not doing it at all.

Spring flowers


Some years spring
works out right for me.

Some years spring
I travel a lot and some-
times miss the spring
flowers in my yard and else-
where when I am living in a
different time zone. But this
year, I got it right!
It is now peak time in my
own spring garden. The yel-
low and purple Louisiana iris-
es I planted at the pond edge
a decade ago are now in full
bloom, adding vibrancy to the
landscape, and cut flowers to
decorate my house with. ,
They've never been better at
least that I've seen than this
year.
And then there are my
bulbs. This past fall I spent a
couple of days installing hun-
dreds of freesia and ranuncu-
lus bulbs in my bulb beds and
wow, are they paying off. Now
I have brilliantly colored flow-
ers and the delicate scent of,
freesias in every room.
And oh yeah, there are
also the sweet peas I planted
last fall. These little seeds take
forever to sprout, and last
year when they did, a wild
rabbit chomped them to the
ground and I had to replant

of the time I was there I still
had a chance to walk down to

to see the show.
And what a show it was.
The cherry blossom buds
were delayed by cold weather,
but the clays I was in D.C. the
temperature rose to 90
degrees and the flowers
responded accordingly.
Glorious pink and white flow-
ers entirely covered the trees,
and any slight breeze blew a
blizzard of flower petals over
all the spectators. Except for
the fact that it was hot and
crowded with people, it was a
sight to behold.
D.C. may be best known
for its spring cherry blos-
soms, but what I enjoy even
more are the spring bulbs
flowering in all the window
boxes and planters, in strips
along the sidewalks, in flower
beds gracing all the public
spaces.
Living in Florida, I miss
tulips and hyacinths and daf-
fodils. Sure you can grow
them here, but with few
exceptions, this involves keep-
ing the bulbs in the refrigera-
tor for months, then planting
them outside, then digging
them up the next year and
cooling them again. It's just
too much trouble.
But in D.C., wow, they
thrive here. Wherever I
walked I stopped to admire
scores of varieties of tulips
and daffodils and the fra-
grance of hyacinths overpow-
ered even the delicious scent
of hot dogs prepared by street
vendors.
Yes, this spring was a good
one for me, but it's not over
yet. My backyard flowers are

Russell Grooms. Russell hired
me to work in his real estate
office while I was a college stu-
dent, and I always enjoy recon-
necting with him. Plus, he
makes me feel young when he
calls me "kiddo."The many peo-
ple who shape the path you take
in life remind me how impor-
tant relationships are in the suc-
cess of the individual and in our
great state.
Thursday and Friday were
spent primarily on the House
floor dealing with the state
budget. The House budget con-
tained $74.4 billion in overall
spending, and it includes an
additional $1.3 billion in funding
Sfor K-12 education. Included in
this $1.3 billion additional fund-
ing is $676 million that we are
recommending to be used for
teacher salaries. Florida's con-
stitution provides for collective
bargaining, and since teachers
are not state employees, neither
the legislature nor the gover-
nor can set individual teacher
salaries. It will be the local
school boards making these
decisions through the collec-
tive bargaining process with the
unions.
In this budget, "per-student"
funding increased by nearly
$400. As Speaker Weather said,
"Clearly the big winner in this
year's budget is education." It
will be the job of your local
school boards to ensure these
funds are used to connect the
skills of students to the needs of
employers.
The health care budget is
the largest part of the overall
budget, and it totals $31.3 bil-
lion. The biggest component of
Florida's healthcare budget is
Medicaid, estimated at $20.7 bil-


lion in spending for the 2012-
13 year.
Florida has approximately
3.35 million Medicaid recipients
with an estimated spending of
$6,208 per recipient. Over 62
percent of childbirths in Florida
were paid for by the Medicaid
program in 2011-12. As of
October 2012, 43,677 people
received nursing home care,
paid for by Medicaid.
Medicaid spending has
grown substantially in the past
several years. In 1990-91,
Medicaid spending totaled $3
billion. Ten years later,
Medicaid spending had grown
to nearly $9 billion. By 2010-11,
that number roughly doubled
to $19 billion, and this year's
budget for Medicaid is over $22
billion.
The shift to greater use of
managed care plans to help con-
trol costs and improve quality
and care coordination is a major
focus of lawmakers. This shift
towards managed care is
expected to help expand health
innovation, improve systems of
care and reduce the need for
institutional care.
I One of the key drivers to
Florida's economy in the years
ahead will be the 65-plus popu-
lation. There is no question that
as we see increased numbers
of aging Floridians, we will need
to manage their needs with
greater emphasis on productiv-
ity gains, new technologies and
more efficient systems aimed
at reducing the need for insti-
tutional care.
The 2013-14 proposed
House budget includes $2.6 bil-
lion in reserves to be set aside
for a "rainy day." These fiscally
responsible budget reserves
will allow us to weather chang-
ing fiscal forecasts, preserve
our AAA bond ratings and pro-
tect Florida's fiscal future. This
reserve fund saves taxpayers


millions in lower interest pay-
ments on state issued bonds.
It is interesting to note,
accounting for inflation and pop-
ulation growth, this budget is
smaller per capital than it was
in fiscal year 2004-05. This budg-
et is 6 percent smaller than it
was in 2004-05 and 17 percent
smaller than the peak of the
2006-07 budget year. The lean
years of belt tightening have
forced Florida to find new ways
to meet its obligations with
fewer resources, and this is the
first year since I have served
thatwe have not had to look for
new ways to make cuts and
make the hard decisions that
come along with declining rev-
enues.
Normally, the House con-
ducts "structured debate" on
the budget. This means that
both Republicans and
Democrats agree to an amount
of time to debate the pros and
cons of the budget. Because so
many members from the minor-
ity party were in agreement
with the proposed budget, only
one member from the minority
party debated against it. The
budget passed with a biparti-
san vote of 99 yeas to 17 nays.
In the coming days, the
House and Senate will meet in
budget conference to work out
the differences between the two
chambers' budgets. This is the
compromise process where
Senate and House conference
committees find ways to agree
on issues and budgeted
amounts for the areas of the
budget that are different.
Friday was an exciting day
on the House floor. Not only did
we pass the "high school des-
ignations" bill
(HB7091/SB1070), we also
were blessed to have golf pro
Jack Nicklaus address the mem-
bers. It pays to have a seat on
the House floor that is close to


the front and on the side of the
Speaker's office. This allowed
me a brief opportunity to shake
his hand and have him auto-
graph a book. While I am not an
avid golfer, I know a few that
might appreciate a book signed
by a legend.
Speaking of opportunity,
every day a gentleman named
Charley Price sends me a quote
of the day. Many of them are
quite good, but a quote he
recently sent stood out from the
others. The quote was by
Thomas Edison. Edison said,
"Opportunity is missed by most
people because it is dressed in
overalls and looks like work." I
have shared this with my own
children and encouraged them
to not be dissuaded by work.
My grandfather always said that
"anything worth having is
worth working for." My mom
added, "If it was easy, it would
have already been done."
The legislative process is a
difficult one and contains many
long hours that people do not
witness. The hard work of mov-
ing bills, solving problems, craft-
ing amendments and fighting
for fairness in the budget
requires a work ethic and com-
mitment to the process. While
you may invest hours in issues
that end up going nowhere,
there are successes in seeing
many of your priorities find their
path forward. With long hours
on the House floor, these last
few weeks of session are the
most difficult.
Prayer is an important part
of life at the State Capitol. It
starts with your personal appeal
and the work you have ahead of
you for that day: After all, it is the
Creator that will move hearts
and minds, and open and close
doors. Make no mistake about
it; you can see His hand at work
in many of the events that
unfold each day.

WEDNESDAY, APlRI. 24, 2013 NEWS News-Leader


This was written by Giarrett
Pelican of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's 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, Hilliard and
Bryceville. The "We Tip" pro-
gram 1-800-78CRIME also
allows callers to leave anony-
mous tips.

Cocaine bust
A Jacksonville man was
arrested on a fWlony drug
charge early Saturday after his
vehicle was searched, accord-
ing to a-deputy's report.
John Burbette Bailey, 42, of
Jacksonville, is charged with
possession of cocaine, his
arrest report said. Investigators
made contact with Bailey about
1 a.m. after his "suspicious"
vehicle, a silver four-door
Cadillac parked in the 55000
block of Deer Run Road, was
reported by a resident, the
report said.
Inside the car's center con-
sole, deputies found a pill bottle
containing 12 red unmarked
, pills, which Bailey allegedly told
investigators were hydro-
codone, a narcotic painkiller
prescribed to him, according
to the report. But a white pow-
der within the red capsules test-
ed positive for cocaine twice
during field tests, the report
s~ i.


Stolen generator
A Callahan man accused of
stealing a generator from his
former employer was arrested
on felony theft charges after
turning himself in Friday,
according to a deputy's report.
Justin Kyle Cribb, 32, of
44078 McKendree Drive, is
charged with burglary and
grand theft, his arrest report
said. He remains at Nassau
County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
The victim, Cribb's past
employer, reported his gener-
ator, valued at roughly $5,000,
stolen from a Yulee residence
on April 15. After learning a
pair of men in a white truck had
been trying to sell an appliance
akin to the one stolen, the vic-
tim volunteered that the sus-
pect may have been Cribb, a
former employee who drives a
white pickup, the report said.
During a controlled phone
call on April 15, Cribb alleged-
ly admitted to the theft and told
the victim he could buy the gen-
erator back for $150, deputies
said. On Friday, just days later,
Cribb called the sheriff's office
and turned himself in.

Cash stolen
A Yulee man suspected of
stealing thousands of dollars
from a restaurant on US 17
along with several'TV sets from
the hotel in which he was stay-
ing was arrested on a list of
theft charges Thursday morn-
ing, according to a deputy's
report.
Timothy Weston Greene,
21, of 850857 US 17, Room 123,
is charged with burglary to a
dwelling and grand theft, both
felonies, his arrest report said.
Greene also was charged with


felony arson, after investigation
found he had burned unknown
items next to his hotel, accord-
ing to the report.
An employee at Missy's
Kitchen, on US 17 neighboring
the Nassau Holiday Motel,
reported a burglary at the
restaurant and the theft of more
than $5,000 cash, the report
said. The suspect had appar-
ently entered by removing glass
slats on the bathroom window.
A witness who reportedly
saw Greene. wandering
between the motel and restau-
rant, burning unknown objects
in the grass nearby, reported
his behavior to police, the
report said. Investigators found
charred glass slats from the
restaurant's bathroom window
in the Dumpster between the
two businesses.
About 7:19 a.m., investiga-
tors spoke with Greene, who
allegedly told them he had been
burning things "because (he)
was bored," and allowed them
to search his room, deputies
said.
Inside the room, investiga-
tors found three TV sets that
Greene said he purchased, but
could not say from whom or
where or provide any receipts,
the report said. In addition,
about $7,275 was found in a
Brink's lockbox in a nightstand
between two beds inside the
room, which a victim identified
as the stolen cashbox, deputies
said.

Countywide survey


finds 119 homeless


The Coalition for the
Homeless, with the assistance
of local agencies and volun-
teers from the community,
conducted the Annual
Homeless Point in Time count
in Nassau County on Jan. 23.
This is an annual count
required by the federal gov-
ernment and conducted on or
around the last week in
January every year in con-
junction with Emergency
Services Coalition for the
Homeless of Jacksonville, Inc.
to get a one-day, "point in time"
snapshot of homeless individ-
uals in the county.
Robyn Andrews, president
of the Coalition for the
Homeless of Nassau County,
reported that with the help of
just under 20 volunteers, the
annual 2013 count identified
119 homeless individuals in
five zones, including the
island, Yulee, Callahan and
Hilliard. This number reflects
an increase from the 94 count-
ed in 2012.
In addition, 216 students
are homeless in Nassau
County, reported by the
Nassau County School District
Office of Intervention and
Prevention under the criteria
of the McKinney Vento Act.
Of the individuals counted
this year, 65 percent were male
and 35 percent were female,
which is an increase from last
year's findings of 25 percent
female.
Some 80 percent identified
their race as white while 11
percent identified themselves
as black/African American, 6
percent as mixed race and 3
percent as Hispanic.
There were 6 percent were
between the ages of 17 and
24; 20 percent between the
ages of 25 and 34; 53 percent
between 35 and 45: and 21 per-
cent over 55, which is a
decrease from last year's fig-
ure of over 50 percent above
the age of 55.
More than half, 53 percent,
of the homeless surveyed
reported that they were stay-
ing in a temporary shelter -
which is right on par with last
year's figure of 52 percent; 47
percent reported sleeping in
their vehicle or other tempo-
rary location not meant for
h"humai habitation. i iii
The majority, 74 percent of
those surveyed, reported
experiencing homelessness
for one year or more, while 26
percent reported experienc-
ing homelessness for less than
one year.
The main reason for expe-
riencing homelessness was
the cost of affordable housing,
said 53 percent; 31 percent
reported lack of employment
and 16 percent reported a dis-
ability or health condition as
the main reason for their
homelessness.


Finally, the top three needs
in Nassau County reported by
homeless individuals surveyed
were employment, affordable
housing and transportation:
reported nearly equally at 34
percent, 33 percent and 33 per-
cent, respectively.
For the past four years in
Nassau County, organized by
Pam Lee, the Coalition's annu-
al homeless count has identi-
fied nearly 100 homeless indi-
viduals each year. This
number has remained fairly
consistent.
The Coalition for the
Homeless strives to provide
assistance to these individu-
als, in conjunction with other
organizations and community
volunteers, through Gracie's
Kitchen in Yulee currently
serving an average of 55 meals
2-3 nights per week; the Soup
Train, which provides healthy
ready to eat meals to elderly
shut-ins in Nassau County in
partnership with the Council
on Aging and Barnabas, and
through the recently opened
Day Drop in Center, which
provides services to homeless
individuals which include
respite from the heat and cold,
a snack and beverage, a hot
shower and laundry and an
address to receive mail and
utilize on job applications. The
Day Drop in Center also pro-
vides assistance in obtaining
identification and applying for
benefits, along with referrals
to local agency services that
may be of benefit to the indi-
vidual.
The Finally Home Nassau
project is currently partner-
ing with the United Way of
Northeast Florida to help
bring awareness to the com-
munity, seek resources and
raise funds to house these indi-
viduals in addition to pro-
viding needed medical, mental
health, and life skill support.
The project is working
towards bringing suppor-
tive housing into Nassau
County for the homeless pop-
ulation in order to assist them
in becoming productive citi-
zens.

.,, One of the many problems that can cause the amateur golfer's iron and wood shots
Sto go offline is something not thought about often. Having too hard or too soft of a
grip could be a key to not hitting your shots on the correct line. If your grip is too light,
when you make the backswing, your wrists may go into a cupped position. This will
result in an open dubface from the top of your backswing all the way through impact.
The simple solution is to slightly strengthen your grip to let the clubface be more
square at impact. If you tend to hook the ball, that means that your dubface is closed at impact
and could be dosed at the top of your backswing. As a result, you wil need to relax your grip a
little bit, allowing the club to make a smooth transition from the backswing through impact,

Just a handful of cobia

take place any day.
With this in mind, cobia
fishermen are gearing up for
some of the best and most
exciting fishing action of the
year
The sea-
son will actu-
ally get

tonight,
beginning at
7 p.m., when
Capt. Allen
Mills will
OUTDOORS share his
... knowledge
on Northeast

fishing tactics. The cobia
seminar will take place at Ten
Acres and will be hosted by
:the Nassau Sport Fishing

: "We will also award all of
-ur winners in the recent
NSFA annual Black Drum
IFishinig Tournament," Presi-
dent John Hartrich said.
"This will be a big evening for
'all of our guests and mem-

Tuna towers were first

Fishermen would then motor-

Tuna towers became pop-

with a tuna tower and impro-
vise by employing the highest
point on their fishing boat to
spot cobia. This may include
standing on a cooler at the
bow of the boat or even stand-
ing on the top of the center
console.
"My boat's tuna tower is
the perfect platform for spot-
ting cobia," Mills said. "My
tuna tower is 20 feet higher
than my boat's canopy, giving
me a huge advantage for spot-
ting cobia.


"M;ay is my Ifvorite month .
when targeting Amelia Island
cobia. I will begin checking
out the pogey pods that typi-
cally hold along the beaches
of Amelia Island and at the
mouth of Cumberland Sound.
Large pogey pods are a huge'
attraction for Amelia Island
cobia.
luring clear water condi-
tions created from a flood
tide, I will also sight fish from
my tuna tower at the St.
Marys shipping channel,
where typically cobia will hold


close t,) cli; el buoys."
Mills looks for wakes
along a smooth ocean surface
to disclose cobia swimming
along the beaches and at the
mouths of inlets. A light west
wind is preferred by cobia
fishermen, allowing them to
spot cobia holding close to
and just under the surface.
"I have on board several
seven-foot spinning rods with
spinning reels filled with 40-
pound braided fishing line,"
Mills said. "A short two-foot
section of 60-pound fluorocar-

ployed for that spooky cobia.
My favorite lures include sur-
face plugs and plastic swim
baits. My favorite color pat-
terns include chartreuse and
bright orange."
Cobia can reach weights of
more than 70 pounds in our
waters; however, 30- to 50-
pound cobia are more com-
mon.
The present Florida regu-
lations on cobia allow fisher-
men to keep one per day with
a maximum of six per vessel.

Jazz Fest names scholarship winner


The setting was the Amelia
Ballroom at the Omni Resorts
Amelia Island Plantation, but it
could well have been the Sands
Hotel in las Vegas circa 1965 as
the Dynamic Les DeMerle 17
Piece Orchestra, plus vocalists
Sam Kouvaris and Bonnie
Eisele, emulated legendary
shows by Frank Sinatra and the
Count Basie Band at the Amelia
Island Jazz Festival's Big Band
Bash on April 6.
The sold-out annual event
featured memorable songs,
swinging arrangements, ball-
room dining and dancing and
the festival's 2013 Jazz
Scholarship Award winner, 17-
year-old Fernandina Beach res-
ident Richard Roberts.
The DeMerle outfit was in
top form as it welcomed guests
with spot-on versions of
"Splanky," "Silk Shiny
Stockings" and other big band
classics, some of which were
original arrangements culled
from DeMerle's days drum-
ming with the Harry James
Band.
Versatile songstress Eisele
added superb renditions of "I've
Got The World on a String,"
"It's Almost Like Being in
Love," and "Over the Rainbow,"
before giving way to Kouvaris,
a bona fide Sinatra interpreter
who charmed the crowd with,
among other tunes, "The Way
You Look Tonight," "I've Got
You Under My Skin," "Don't
Worry About Me" and a rous-
ing closer, "New York, New
York." The'band's finale was
vintage DeMerle: a foot-stomp-
ing tribute medley to the great
big bands, highlighted by
Woody Herman's "Woodchop-
per's Ball," Basie's "Jumping
At The Woodside," Glenn
Miller's "String Of Pearls" and
Benny Goodman's "Sing Sing
Sing," which was capped with a
dazzling drum solo.


PHOTiO BY CAROI.IN' BILOCIILINGER/ST'UDIOCBPIIO'RGRAPHY.COM
Amelia Island Jazz Festival founder Ies DeMerle presents Fernandina Beach trum-
peter Richard Roberts, a senior at Douglas Anderson School Of The Arts in
Jacksonville, with the 2013 Jazz Scholarship Award at the Big Band Bash April 6.


The evening's big surprise
was the announcement of this
year's Jazz Scholarship winner,
trumpeter Richard Roberts,
who is currently a senior it
Douglas Anderson School Of
The Arts in Jacksonville. A for-
mer student at Fernandina
Beach Middle and High Sch(xl,
Roberts sat in with the band
for a stirring version.of Charlie
Parker's "Billie's Bounce." He
will receive an annual payment
of $1,000 for each of the four
years he studies jazz in college.
"I love to swing," he said,
"and jamming with Les' band is
always a great thrill and learn-
ing experience." Roberts cites
Wynton Marsalis and his
Middle School Band Director
Randy Hamnm as being major
influences on his playing. "I've
also learned a lot listening to


Louis Armstrong and Clifford
Brown and really dig the old
school styles," lie added.
Colleges have already taken
notice of his prowess.
Although still undecided on a
final choice, he has narrowed
his decision down to the
University of North Florida,
Florida State University and the
Berklee College of Music in
Boston.
"Richard is a terrific trutmpet
player whose development I've
had the pleasure of watching
for several years now,"
DeMerle said. "His future as a
musician is quite promising and
limitless."
Roberts will sit in with the
Dynamic Les DeMerle Band
when it makes a long awaited
return to the Shrimp Festival
lineup, Sunday May 5, on the


Riverfront Stage at 11 a.m.
"We're thrilled to be back at
Shrimp Fest," DeMerle said,
"and we promise a lively set
that will include Bonnie, key-
boardist Doug Matthews and
saxophonist Don Zentz. And
we've already set April 26, 2014
as the date for next year's Big
Band Bash at the Omni Resorts
Hotel we plan on making it
yet another memorable
evening."
A not for profit 501(c) (3)
corporation, the Les DeMerle
Amelia Island Jazz Festival dis-
tributes proceeds toward a
scholarship program to fund
college educations for aspiring
jazz musicians.

This young lady's name is
Sarah. She is a 3-year-old
Labrador retriever mix. She
has a beautiful reddish tan
coat and a happy smile. Sarah
came into the shelter after
she was hit by a motorcycle.
She is doing much better now
and is ready for a new home.
She weighs 47 pounds and is
heartworm negative. She
knows commands like sit and
shake hands. She also walks
very well on a leash. If you go'
to www.petfinder.com you can
see her interacting with our
volunteers. Sarah is waiting
for her special someone to
take her home. She can be
seen at the Nassau County
Animal Services, 86078


License Road, Yulee, 491-
7440, Tuesday through
Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and
Saturday 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
We are closed on Sundays,
Monday and most holidays.


Lana is a 2-year-old adult
female with a sweet face and
friendly disposition. She is a
real people kitty and will steal
your heart very quickly. She
has been declawed, so there
is no going outside for this
girl. Lana used to be some-
one's pet, but the situation
changed and she was given
up. Lana is looking to be a
"forever cat" and someone
who will be committed to tak-
ing care of her this time. If
you can do that, Lana is wait-
ing for you. 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 ani-
mal in need, what a difference
it would make. Visit our
Adoption Center, our website
www.catsangels.com or call

Adoption Volunteer.

Hope is a beautiful,
extremely loyal American
Staffordshire Terrier mix, and
about 4 years old. She has a
distinctive, noble face and a
soft, fawn-colored coat. Hope
is one of our staff's favorites,
and she needs someone to
give her hope right now. Her
owner passed away, leaving
Hope and two cats with no
one to take them to a new
home. Hope very loyally
defended her home when our
animal control officers came
to rescue her, and we think
she would be a faithful, loyal
friend for the dog lover who
gives Hope a second chance
at a happy life. She walks well
on her leash and appreciates
affection, but she doesn't
understand what has hap-
pened to her, and she needs a
special person to give her
understanding and love. You'll
be rewarded with the endur-
ing friendship of a trulylvon-
derful dog.
Scooter is a very special
cat who needs a very special
cat lover to be his friend today.
He's 15 years old and lived in
a home, but his owner could-
n't keep him any more. He
appears to be in excellent
health for his age. He's affec-
tionate, loves to be petted, and


are accepted during business
hours. We accept clean items
in working order except for
clothing, computers and older
model televisions. Also visit
the Cats Angels shop for
unique items at Trailer Park
Collectibles, 702 Centre St,
which is open daily. Don't for-
get to recycle and bring your
aluminum cans to our parking
lot bin.

area who are not spayed or
neutered? Cats Angels can
help you. Call us at 321-2267

neuter services. We can

unwanted and homeless ani-
mals. Spay and neuter the
responsible solution.


knows his name. He's a
Domestic Short Hair mix with
a beautiful, soft gray-and-white
coat, and he's medium-sized.
He's friendly and has plenty of
energy to play and cuddle
with you! It's a shock for a cat
to go from years in a home to
a shelter with lots of other
cats. He's handling it very
well, but he really needs to be
back in a quiet home for his
retirement years so he can
receive individual attention
and love. You'll be making a
huge difference in the life of a
wonderful pet who will devote
all of his remaining years to
loving you. Please come see
Scooter, and ask us about a
special reduced adoption rate
for this great pet!
Your Nassau Humane
Society often needs volunteers
to provide short-term in-home
care for friendly dogs and cats
in need until they are ready to
be adopted. Veterinary care

Fostering can last from a few

ever home.

Book Fest asking kids to be a bookworm


Exactly how do you create a
Bookworm? This was one of the
challenges developed by the
organizers of the Amelia Island
Book Festival's Viva Books!
2013 Kidz Fun Zone.
Five amazingly creative
women, all of whom have devot-
ed their professional lives to
early childhood education and
children's literature, joined
forces to make this year's festi-
val more vibrant and stimulating
for our younger visitors.
Kidz Fun Zone chairman
Terry Ramsay, well known
locally for her exceptional work
with educating children for
more than 30 years, has been
organizing the Kidz Zone for
four years. This year she is
joined by four "Absorbent
Minds," all with extensive back-
grounds with Montessori
Education.
Tissa Harrold Lewis has
taught at several Montessori
schools around the country for
33 years, the last six here at
Amelia Island Montessori. She
came to Amelia Island on her
honeymoon 10 years ago, fell


in love with the area and is now
a full-time resident.
Lisa Hooper has been on
Amelia Island for over 20 years
and taught at Amelia Island
Monlessori for 13 years. She
also works with Communities In
Schools.
Susan Edwards, .another
longtime resident, worked at
Amelia Island Montessori for
20 years. She is a lover of
children's literature and is
excited to be part of the Kidz
Zone.
Pat Spiegel taught Montes-
sori in Connecticut for many
years and worked at the Univer-
sity of Florida in the baby pro-
gram before moving to Amelia
Island.
The Absorbent Minds is the
title of one of Maria
Montessori's books and these
Montessori teachers have
adopted the term as an expres-
sion of their joint mission.
Tissa Harrold Lewis
explains, "We believe in sur-
rounding children with real
literature and interesting books.
The love for reading and books


comes into play at a very young
age; parents reading to children,
interaction with books and
various experiences with
books."
"The Amelia Island Book
Festival is a wonderful venue
for helping us pursue our motto:
Follow The Child!" she said.
With nearly 40 children's
authors appearing at this year's
festival at the Atlantic Avenue
Rec Center, the audience of curi-
ous children will surely be a
large one. Authors will read
their books and entertain ques-
tions and answers afterward.
This is an opportunity for kids
to listen to authors, look at
books for sale and have some
fun arts and crafts experiences
relating to titles and the story
line of books.
Here's where the Book-
worm comes in.
To encourage kids to be a
bookworm themselves, the
Kidz Zone Committee thought
of a great way to visualize that
task. They asked several local
schools to help design a very
long, colorful Bookworm, cre-


eating an atmosphere in the Kidz
Zone that is inviting for the
youngsters.
Several very large blank
paper circles were delivered to
four area, schools for the stu-
dents to decorate. Southside,
Emma Love Hardee, Yulee
Middle School and Callahan
Elementary all responded by
returning the paper circles com-
pletely decorated with some
very creative and unique
designs. They will be linked
together to form large colorful
bookworms throughout the
room.
Small rug samples have
been donated to designate areas
for children to sit while authors
read.
At the reading sessions,
each child will get a Passport to
Reading booklet and the
authors will attach their indi-
vidual stickers to the booklet.
Add all this to the Friends of
the Library helping kids write
their own Book About Me and
the free Photo Booth close by,
and you have a pretty great Kidz
Fun Zone.
