Memories of


the very first


Shrimp Festival
CANDY CALDWELL DAWSON
For the News-Leader
AA the teenaged daughter of the Fernandina
Beach News-Leader editor, I had an inside
glimpse of the first "Shrimp Boat Festival," as
it was called in 1964. My dad, News-Leader
publisher and editor Ray Caldwell, had penned a chal-
lenge to the residents of our sleepy little fishing village
in an editorial dated Aug. 20, 1959. He asked, "Do we
want to get into the act?"
He was referring to Gasparilla Day in Tampa and the
Fiesta of-Five Flags in Pensacola. He went on to say,
"Why not something.of this nature here on historic
Amelia Island that is steeped in pirate lore, and boasts of
being under eight flags?"
My dad had a remarkable ability to inspire people
and.to think BIG, all while being a soft-spoken

'worked in the back shop of the Sebring News.
He had honed his skills as a linotype Operator there
and at papers in Mississippi and Tennessee for many
years. But my mother, Marjorie, knew of his greater
potential and finally so did John Perry of Perry
Publications, who sent this modest man into a modest lit-
tie newspaper operation that published just once a week
to see what he could do.
He hit the ground running. Just a short time after
arriving, and in the same issue of that editorial chal-
lenge, a reader named Mrs. R.S. Adler wrote that she
was going to re-subscribe to the local weekly (for $3 per
year) because, "The current issue ... is such a great
impi ovciiivnt over many recent issues." She went on to
sa3, \\'c have always wondered why the News-Leader
didn't print local historical articles and stories of places
of interest- Your recent issue was most refreshing ..."
Digging through the yellowed archives of the News-
Leader, I found my father's words foreshadowing the
changes that were to come. In an address to the
Rotarians he concluded his talk by saying, "A newspaper
is you and the.life you lead. It records your birth, your
marriage, your successes and your failures. For your
newspaper to grow, you must grow first."
My dad was always cajoling citizens and businesses
to show pride in their community. In his "Just Ramblin"
- cblumn, he loved to show support for people like bank
president Louis Ferreira when he flew the historic eight
flags by "blending the rich history of Amelia Island in
with the bank's salute to the 100th anniversary of the
signing of the National Bank Act ... (wishing) there were,
more of these colorful flags and that they could be
exhibited on more occasions, if not permanently, in
some strategic local spot."
In the next item my dad talked about publicizing the
area with more emphasis on the "island angle."
Everybody referred to our town as Fernandina, not
Fernandina Beach. He realized the beauty of the name
Amelia Island and always had an eye and ear toward pro-
motion of this place he had come to love. He never liked
the pronoun "I" but loved getting other people's names
in the paper, so he praised local author T. Howard Kelly
for his Esquire magazine article about our area and the.
fact that he called his home on the beach "Kels Isle."
He later wrote about John Tester speaking up at a

MEMORIES
Continued from 1A
chamber of commerce meet-
ing about the charm of
islands and how the sign that
read, "Visit Fernandina
Beach, Florida's First
Beach," didn't have the ring
to it that "Visit Beautiful
Amelia Island, the Isle of 8

My memories from 50
years ago are a bit hazy, but I
definitely recall the excite-
merit over the Shrimp (Boat)
Festival. Besides being
happy for my dad, who had
been talking this up for five
years, it was shaping up to be
a fun event for our little town.
It truly was small-town
America.
I wrote a column for the
paper called "The Personals,"
and my copy was peppered l
with phrases like "... motored

come to admire the great
work of Beano Roberts as he
later came into the picture in
a big way. He gives credit to
the Jaycees for being his
inspiration for'a lifetime of
public service, just as the
Lions Club did for my dad.
Ray Caldwell admired and


appreciated each and every

know he would be incredibly
proud of the citizens of
Fernandina Beach for not

humble festival but embrac-

enriching the community in
ways he could have only
dreamed.
Dad passed away in 1992
and is buried in Bosque Bello

annual Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival, I'll place a
few of this year's golden
shrimp necklaces around his
headstone and say, "Dream

'Ghost parade' Thursday


Local residents miffed by
the change in dates for the Isle
of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival
Pirate Parade plan a "ghost
parade" in response.
The "Woulda Coulda
Should Ghost Parade" is
scheduled at 6 p.m. Thursday
on Ash Street between Fifth
and Seventh streets.
"Join us in celebrating the
Parade that Wasn't," organiz-
ers advertised. "Dress like 'a
Pirate and get free ,beads from


the 'Royal Order of the Red
Toenail.'"
The traditional Pirate
Parade was moved this year
from the Thursday evening
before Shrimp Festival week-
end to the Saturday before.
Crowds were large for the
parade last Saturday, though
not as large as on Thursday
evenings in the recent past, and
there were about a dozen fewer
floats entered, 96 compared to
-mo're'thani.l00 in recent years.

'Fiesta time



in Fernandina'


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader

Fiesta time in Fernandina,
the pretty city by the sea.
Fiesta time in Fernandina
is the place to be.
So come to the fiesta and
dance your cares away
Fiesta time in Fernandina,
on Fiesta Day!

Candy Caldwell Dawson is
the daughter of former News-
Leader editor and publisher Ray
Caldwell. Now living in Orlando,
Dawson lived in Fernandina
Beach from the sixth to the 12th
grade, graduating from
Fernandina Beach High School
in 1966.
She is making a documen-
tary about the Isle of Eight
Flags Shrimp Festival for Viva
Florida's 500th anniversary of
the arrival of Ponce de Leon in
the state of Florida.
The verse above is from a
song that l)awson remembers
was sung by resident and
teacher George Tyson, and pos-
sibly recorded for a festival held
in early June to invite tourists to
the area. Called the Lion's Club
Golden Crown Fiesta, it includ-
ed a golf tournament and a his-
torical "Romance of Eight


Flags" ceremony similar to one
held in St. Augustine, the details
of Which have been lost,
although according to locals it
was held at Fort Clinch.
Dawson says she also remem-
bers a street dance held in the
downtown area with a live band.
Hurricane Dora, the island's
most damaging hurricane in
recent decades, hit Amelia
Island after the first Shrimp
Boat Festival in 1964. Dawson
says she and her father, stay-
ing at the house on South
Fletcher Avenue and ignoring
orders to evacuate, eventually
made their way to the-News-
Leader office for shelter.
Dawson says she has not
attended the festival since 1966,
but is looking forward to the
50th anniversary celebration
this year, which she will film for
her documentary.
"It was a dream my father
had of promoting the island,"
Dawson says. "He would& be
amazed at how the island looks
now.
Dawson became a reading-
specialist teacher after gradu-
ating from Florida Atlantic
University, and is married to
journalist Greg Dawson. They
have two children: Chris,:37,
and Aimee. 32.

the festival this year (the loca-

has brought confusion and
criticism. -
Not Good Change #5:
Historic downtown
Fernandina Beach is quaint,
idyllic and lively. So it makes
perfect sense that impromptu
street entertainers would
fit in nicely. Not here, appar-
ently.
Complaints from
several residents have
prompted city officials to mull
a law essentially making it
unpalatable for street musi-
cians to play here. Mean-
while, there are apparently
constitutional ramifications
involving free speech and
expression that might come
into play.
Once again, the city attor-
ney has provided suspect
advice to city officials in this
instance about crafting stipu-
lations (a requirement for a
permit, a permit fee, etc.) that
would practically eliminate
these free-wielding musical
peddlers. But the fat lady has
yet to sing in this evolving
stanza.
Some things are good the
way they are. They don't need
to be changed, especially if it
is just for the sake of change.
So just let things be.

Don't.be afraid to ask


The role that questions
play in different situations
has always intrigued me.
For example, watching a
congressional hearing like
Benghazi, you come away
feeling that the members of
Congress seem most inter-
ested in their time before the
cameras and less interested
in probing to get valuable
information. Little informa-

it hardly
ever affects
their reelec-

On the
other side,
anyone who
has been
prepped by
a lawyer for
a trial has
heard the
phrase,
"Never ask


..... a question
to which you don't know the
answer:" Lawyers who have
failed to remember this truth
have suffered the conse-
quences.
However, in business it is
very different. Questions are
the lifeblood of good results
and avoiding Tailure.
Since many executives are
driven by their objectives,
they use meetings as the
means to achieve what they
want, rather than to develop
the facts. Therefore, they see
questions as a distraction,
slowing down the process,
rather than a way to flesh out
concerns or what is really
being said. This is also true
with salespeople. Once they
think that they have a deal,
they are trained to move on
so as to not allow for a mis-
step. However, sometimes
the individual that the sales-
person is addressing still
must sell the deal to someone
else in the organization. So
unless the salesperson under-
stands and addresses any
concerns of the ultimate deci-

and avoiding failure.


*sion maker, the deal may fall
apart.
Many individuals in busi-
ness situations also shy away
from asking questions. First
of all, they are afraid of look-
ing dumb. In addition, if they
believe the boss doesn't like
questions, they don't want to
risk his or her ire. Lastly,
many executives would
rather speak than listen, so
why ask questions?
Obviously, when conduct-
ing a job interview, asking
good questions is the best
way to get at whether the
candidate is qualified. How-
ever, while having individuals
report what they accomplish-
ed is helpful, asking the indi-
vidual to describe how they
accomplished something is
much more productive.
It is also important that
the candidate ask smart
questions. First of all, they
need to find out about the job
responsibilities and what
they are getting into if they
get hired. Second, it indicates
to the recruiter that the can-
didate is really interested in
more than just getting hired.
Recently a former client
called to discuss his being
recruited for a new CEO
position. He felt he had done
well with the recruiting com-
mittee and all of the board
members. He was surprised
and concerned that they
were now having him inter-
view with the executive VP of
HR, a woman he knew I had
done business with in my for-
mer life. He asked if I had
any suggestions. I replied
that if he could get her talk-
ing 75 percent of the time
about the company's issues
and the culture, she would
love him for the job. He did
and she became his biggest
fan.


If you are the senior per-
son in the room; the others

find you intimidating, and be
afraid to speai:up. In addi-
tion, since.we,1f1'isttn
through our own'value sys-
tem, understanding where

Food truck at shrimpfest


with 'InnovAsian cuisine'


SEATTLE InnovAsian
Cuisine is embarking on a
mobile tasting tour providing
samples of its innovative and
mouthwatering Asian meals to
Atlanta and select Florida cities
via an experiential food truck.
Throughout May, a food
truck sponsored by InnovAsian
Cuisine will be coasting the
highways and making stops at
various large festivals in the
Southeast. The food truck will
be promoting the InnovAsian
brand with food samples, an
instant win sweepstakes for fans
of the brand's Facebook page
and' plenty of high-value
coupons.
The food truck will be locat-
ed at the Shrimp Festival this
weekend at the corner of Centre
and North Fifth streets. Hours
are Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7
p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to
5 p.m.
"We know we make the
most delicious frozen Asian
meals and we want consumers
to taste it to believe it," said
Mark Phelps, co-founder and


president of InnovAsian. "Our
frozen meals are so appealing
because you can make them in
the comfort of your home for
your family and friends."
InnovAsian's vibrantly plum-
colored food truck touts that
"Adventure awaits those willing
to try 'another, course" and
encourages consumers to
"#takeIN" by demonstrating
that InnovAsian Cuisine is just
as savory and delicious as take
out from any restaurant, The
food truck will sample two fam-
ily-style entrees, General Tso's
Chicken and Sweet & Sour
Chicken, along with one side
dish, Chicken Fried Rice. These
dishes are among 13 in the com-
plete InnovAsian line, offering
quick and easy ways to add vari-
ety to any meal.
"Food trucks are a unique
way for the consumer to truly


experience the taste, texture
and flavor in the way the food is
meant to be prepared," said
Jonell Walden, director of events
and experiential marketing. .
In addition to appearing at
major events, such as the Flicks
and Food Trucks in Tampa, the
food truck will also be making
special "#takelN" deliveries to
select neighborhoods through-
out the southeast. These addi-
tional stops will deliver the expe-
rience of InnovAsian Cuisine
"#takenlN" right to consumers'
front doors.
"Involving the food truck in
our marketing efforts helps to
bring the concept of '#takenlN!
InnovAsian Cuisine to life," said

tor. "It provides an experience
that when combined with tradi-
tional marketing tactics poweP-
fully tells the InnovAsian story."

OPINION


WEDNSI)DAY, MAY 1, 2013/NEWS-LEADER


VIEWPOINT/JOHN JOSEPH CASCONE/FERNANDINA BLACil



Shrimp Festival:'To hell with traditions


"When in the course of
human events, it becomes
necessary for one people to
dissolve the political bands
which have connected them
to another and to assume" the
rights of a citizen of
Fernandina Beach "a decent
respect to the opinions" of
others requires a statement
as to the problems that "impel
them to the separation."
"We hold these truths to
be self-evident," that Shrimp
Festival always was, and still
should be in the year of its
Golden Anniversary, a local
celebration dedicated to the
beauty of our community and
the treasures of nature we are
all here to enjoy. It does not
matter about other shrimp
festivals whether in Gulfport,
Ala., Beaufort, S.C., or Port
Arthur, Texas. Their ideas
and moneymaking efforts are
for their community, ours has
-never been about that. Locals
accept with open arms the
'nonprofits who sell food to
fund their annual operations
* and the Shrimp Festival
Committee gets a small per-
'centage to cover the costs of
the festival. The community
benefits, as a whole, because
,the band parents and church
groups and Rotary and all the
other nonprofits help the


community throughout the
year. Where does beer fit in?
After all, we are now ignor-
ing the lessons of history and
will again have free-flowing
alcoholic beverages in the
public places of our communi-
ty. Why? To make money for
the Shrimp Festival
Committee! Pure and, simple.
There can be no other reason
that the filthy lucre associated
with the public sale of alcohol
at a "formerly" family-oriented
festival. But now Sandy Price
has seen the monies to be
made from the Gulf Coast
Festival and its alcohol sales
and those related dollar signs
now drive the bus.
The lessons of history can
be confirmed with the city
commissioners who passed
the law banning public con-
sumption of alcohol years ago
following incidents of drunk-
en raucousness. Check with
Larry Boatright- he was a
commissioner, president of
the chamber and chairman of
the festival when the events
led to the passage of an ordi-
nance that stopped the public
consumption and refocused
the festival to the family-ori-
ented event it has been for
the last three-plus decades.
What about Beano Roberts,
who has been on.the Shrimp


The festival is no longer about local artists or
local interests! The Shrimp Festival
Committee has shown this is about the
almighty dollar and not the community.


Festival Committee every
year of its 50-year existence?
Charles Albert, maybe? The
list goes on and on but the
people who listen are few.
Sandy Price is not one of
them!
Why move the parade
from the Thursday of Shrimp
Festival week to the Saturday
before? Ever heard the adage,
"If it ain't broke, don't fix it?!"
This isn't about preventive
maintenance, it is "to hell with
tradition" and everything else
that isn't what Ms. Price
wants. The parade was always
about local people coming
downtown and gathering
along Ash and Centre streets
in the late afternoon or early
evening for the rallying of the
people and organizations that
make up our community. Not
anymore! Get yourself out in
the middle of the hottest part
of the dlay on the weekend
before the festival because it
has been decided nine days of


festival-associated activities is
what we need, not just a long
weekend. How was the deci-
sion made to extend the fes-
tivities? What's next, Shrimp
Festival as a summer-long
event?
Were there any other activ-
ities affected by the change in
parade day? Well, the farmers'
market lost the use of Centre
Street, we didn't even try to
go over there! The Amelia
Island Book Festival surely
suffered some impact. People
in the parade couldn't partici-
pate in many of the scheduled
activities associated with the
book festival. What about
Little League baseball, soft-
ball games or Babe Ruth
League? Were they notified of
Ms. Price's desired change?
Did they have an opportunity
to speak out about the impact
it might have on their efforts?
Have you heard the uproar
over the shirt? No local artist
submitted work that was at a
level thought to be what the
committee desired! I am a fan
of Guy Harvey! I have con-
tributed many dollars to his
coffers over the years with
my purchases of shirts, hats
and such. I don't ever remem-

We're having a ghost
parade! The 50th Annual
Shrimp Festival Committee, in


their infinite "wisdom," deter-
mined the parade needed to be
moved from its traditional
Thursday night to the Saturday
prior. With an open mind, we
attended the parade and par-
ticipated with enthusiasm.
Given that we have spoken to
no one who liked this decision
Sor ien had a sayso itithedeei1
sion', we have decided to'hold
our own "Woulda, Coulda
Should Ghost Parade!"
If you'd like to join us in cel-
ebrating the parade that was-
n't please join us at 6 p.m.
Thursday on Ash Street
between Fifth and Seventh (in
front of the News-Leadek, the
hardware store and the florist).

ber him being at the Shrimp
Festival, though. If he was, I
sure missed his booth!
Wonder what his original art
would do for our sales vol-
tumes?
The time has long come
for a revisiting of the agree-
ment with the Shrimp Festival
Committee. The festival is no
longer about local artists or
local interests! The city of
Fernandina Beach is never
wholly compensated for its
expenditures in making the
Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp
Festival a success. All the city
has is taxpayer-generated dol-
lars mine and yours and
they spend it for a private
entity to make money. The
committee, in the person of
Ms. Price, has shown this is
about the almighty dollar and
not the community. That
being the case, they need to
pay the whole bill associated
with the event. Our new sher-
iff has recently cut escorts for
funeral processions because
of the costs. How many over-
time hours are accumulated
by the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office over this nine-
day period of festival-relaited'
activities? How much did the
patrol car at the end of my
street, uninhabited but the
motor and air conditioning
running for the entirety of the
parade, cost taxpayers? How
about the state troopers work-
ing traffic on the way to the
island? Game and Fish offi-
cers, too, on land and water!
The relationship between


the city and the Shrimp
Festival Committee long ago
quit being mutually beneficial.
Make it part of the obligation
to pay their own way! How
much does the city expend
and how much does the com-
mittee reimburse? As taxpay-
ers, we are entitled to know
these answers. Tighten the
parameters for the festival -
do the citizens of Fernandina
and Nassau County truly want
nine days of activities inter-
rupting our little paradise? At
the very least have the city
commissioners approve these
changes so the people can
vote on their tenure and
accept or reject such deci-
sions. The last such decision
- borrow monies for non-
essential projects led to a
change of the commission
and a return of most of the
money.
Without a review of the
arrangements between the
city and the committee,
things will continue to deteri-
orate. What's next, a festival
spanning two full weekends
and the workweek in
between? A high seas area
where goods can be taken by
modern day pirates at sword
point without any retribution
from the law? Or, in light of
the much more impressive
professional artists, maybe
after 50 years we'll now start
the "Isle of Eight Flags
Redfish Festival!" With any
luck, it will be moved to the
Omni Amelia Island
Plantation also!

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Working together
The Amelia Island Tree
Ordinance revisions were passed
unanimously by the Nassau County
Commission on April 22.
The efforts to revise the law
came about because of the destruc-
tion of more than 30 very old and
majestic oaks. It's true that the prop-
erty owner, Flash Foods, had the
right to destroy the trees, but just
because it was legal doesn't mean it
was the right thing to do. With site
plan modifications, more trees could
have been left standing. Although
the new ordinance is forward look-
ing, nothing can bring.back the trees
that were lost.
Final passage of the ordinance
was a wonderful example of what
can happen when citizens, elected
officials and government join in a
collaborative process to serve the
community. The result of our joint
efforts was the enactment of sub-
stantial changes in our tree ordi-
nance that will benefit Amelia Island
for years to come.
There are many people to thank
for their contributions to the process
including hundreds of private citi-
zens who supported the changes.
The Nassau County growth man-
agement staff and director, Peter
King, Chair Tom Ford and all the
members of the Nassau County
Planning and Zoning Board, Early
McCall, who lent his expertise as a
certified arborist, and Nassau
County Attorney David Hallman are
just a few of those who played an
important role. Thanks also goes
out to Phil Scanlan for his advice
and counsel. Special thanks to the
News-Leader and Editor Michael
Parnell in particular, who provided
an important public forum for the
discussion.
Thank you to everyone who par-
ticipated in drafting and passing the
Amelia Island Tree Ordinance. It
shows what can happen when we
work together for the greater good.
Next steps include the creation of
the Amelia Tree Conservancy, a cit-
izens' education and advocacy group
to provide leadership, public edu-
cation and advocacy for tree preser-
vation including an active tree plant-
ing'program on Amelia Island. We
would love to have you join us in
. fostering this ongoing effort at

Let'em play
I. Here's another letter on behalf of
traveling musicians and art vendors.
It appears our city commission is
trying to run all of them off the
island by making it impossible for
them to be here. The annual per-
mit fee of $300 is excessive, the
insurance requirement is ridiculous
and removing the pocket parks from
a list of places they ire allowed to
play is just plain stupid. It seems to
me that the pocket parks are the
perfect place to play.
Obviously we don't want them
blocking the sidewalks or entrances
to our stores or using vulgar lan-
guage or leaving litter, but pages
and pages of regulations seem
unnecessary.
In Savannah, Ga., the street per-
former registers with the city,
receives a badge and goes out and
plays. What? Could it really be that
simple?
If there is a problem or a com-
plaint, a city official notifies the per-
former. It's called communication -
and you just don't banish all of them.
If you agree with our commis-
sioners' plan to create a sterile down-
town where everything that hap-
pens has to be pre-planned and
regulated, then don't do anything.
If you think 9ur island is really
more open, free and welcoming than
that, then please read on.
None of this is law-yet. We have
only had the first reading of this
ordinance. It will come up again on
Tuesday, May 7.
Please mark your calendar, tell
your friends and show up at City
Hall on May 7 at 6 p.m..and tell our
city commissioners that they are
wrong and we don't agree with
them.

Vote for St Michael
There's one thing all Christian
churches have in common. It's the
right to vote.
Baptists, Episcopalians, Luther-
ans, Methodists, Presbyterians and
others often gather to vote on
church policy, church renovation,
church expansion, new pastors, new
deacons.
Catholics recently experienced
the nearly 200 cardinals from around


the world come together in the
Sistine Chapel in Rome, deliberate,
discuss and finally vote on the new
Pope Francis.
It was a dramatic moment as mil-
lions watched smoke emitting from
the chimney of the old chapel turn
from black to white, announcing a
new pope.
However, here at home, our local
St. Michael's Church members are
being denied that precious right.
It's the right to vote on expand-
ing St. Michael's or building a new
church in Yulee, only about 10 miles
down the road, on already pur-


JOHN DARKOW/COLUMBIA (MO.) DAILYTRIBUNE


chased property.
As one St. Michael's member put
it, "A yes or no vote would be so
simple."
Announce a voting weekend
ahead of time.
Place voting cards in each pew.
Each member could vote, place their
card in a collection basket. Those
unable to be present could vote by
email or by texting.
This all seems so right, so
respectful, especially since 75 per-
cent of church members either don't
know about the proposed expansion
or don't approve.
In 2005, under former pastor
Father Brian Eburn, indoor bath-
rooms were built and a carefully
planned sacristy was enlarged and
updated.
Father Brian, as he was affec-
tionately known, did not ever want
to see an expansion because he
believed it would destroy the origi-
nal integrity of the beautiful old
(circa 1872) historic church.
He wisely chose, instead, and
with the approval of the bishop and
the church council (representing
hundreds of church members), the
purchase of prime property on
A1A/SR200, just down the road from
the Target/Home Depot shopping
center.
It was commonly believed that
a new church would, someday soon,
be built there.
One other main reason Father
Brian did not want to see St.
Michael's ever expanded was
because it would cause even more
vehicular traffic to crowd the narrow
streets.
Some of the residents in sur-
rounding homes are known to have
said they feel like prisoners in their
own homes during weekend Mass
services because they cannot easily
come and go.
Father Jose Kallukalum, now in
his third year as pastor, would do
well to be in touch with Father Brian.
Eburn who, in 2008 at age 75, retired
as pastor of St. Michael's and from
the active priesthood.
If voting is good for Pope Francis,
it's good for St. Michael's.

Florida law
To the cowardly driver on
Blackrock Road who ran over a lit-
tle black and white Boston Terrier
on Tuesday afternbon (April 23) and
kept on driving shame on you!
Had you bothered to stop you
would've found his collar lying in
the road with his name and the
owner's telephone number on it.
Had you bothered to stop maybe
he would've gotten to the vet's office
a little quicker and wouldn't have
had to hobble home bleeding from
the head and eyes with a most-like-
ly broken leg.
Had you bothered to stop you
would've found that he was not just
a dog but a best friend and beloved
family member.
Had you bothered to stop you
would know that he was the sweet-
est, funniest little guy who was loved
by everyone he met.
But you didn't bother. Instead,
you just kept on driving, probably
not even looking in your rearview
mirror to see if he was alive or not.
I hope that you have many sleep-
less nights over this and I that you
are more caring and empathetic
should this ever happen again.
Accidents happen I get that. It
may not even have been your fault.
But it is Florida law: Statute 316.061
that requires you stop anytime you
are involved in an accident "involv-
ing damage to vehicle or property."
Sadly, dogs are deemed "per-
sonal property" and therefore if a
dog is hit, a person is obligated to
pull over, see if they can find the
owner and find out why the dog was
not on his leash. If the dog is off his
leash a lot of the time the law actu-
ally protects the motorist by absolv-
ing him of liability, but not stopping
turns it into a "hit-and-run."
So the next time you run over
someone's best friend, you might


want to stop and see if you can help.
And in case you're interested, he
didn't die on Tuesday. He's in an
intensive care unit in Orange Park
fighting for his life. By the way, his
name is Bandit.

Hola
Based on a recommendation
from Dave's World, my wife and I
decided to go to lunch at Hola's
Cuban Cafe off of Centre Street. We
love ethnic food, and were pleased
to learn that Cuban food was added
to our dining selections.
The food was very good, but the
seating was limited; however, they
seemed to bedoing a thriving "take
out" business. We learned that the
payment of "impact fees" was hold-
ing up their additional seating.
I am in complete agreement with
the concept of impact fees to pay
for infrastructure and municipal
services which are already in place,
but I am also a believer that gov-
ernment should be trying to help
small businesses get started, since
they are the backbone of our econ-

Certainly we want our downtown
area to be alive with small shops
and restaurants.
Says Marisol Triana, the owner:
The limited seating is definitely hurt-
ing we experience at least half a
dozen parties daily who come in,
realize there is not enough seating
and leave saying they will return at
another time. If there were some
sort of agreement that can be
reached with the city it would be
huge for our business. However, we
were informed that is not an option.
My bigger issue is that, while
government does need to enforce
rules and collect taxes, it should
never lose sight of the fact that it
should also be trying to help local
businesses prosper. Too often I've
seen inspectors who seem to enjoy
their enforcement powers over a
business, who take an almost penal
approach to their job, while it is in
the community's best interest for
that same government representa-
tive to take a "how can I help you"
approach, to assist the engines of
our economy, small businesses, to
thrive.

Amelia Island

Hidden treasure
Steve Nicklas' column (April 24)
disclosed one of Amelia Island's best
kept secrets: the likelihood that the
treasure and artifacts of the San
Miguel lie within reach under the
water and sand off Amelia Island's
southeast coast.
The San Miguel is recognized
by some authorities as one of the
world's 10 most valuable lost treas-
ures. When we think about the
things that make Amelia Island and'
Nassau County a great place to live,
it's a long list and now we add the
prospect of one of the great treas-
ures of history!
Most of the owners of the com-
pany are residents of Amelia Island
and Nassau County, and are folks
who have blended adventure and
investing into an enjoyable and excit-
ing race into history. One activity
that Amelia Research & Recovery,
LLC enjoys is sharing the story of
the search. The work of Amelia
Research & Recovery and the pri-
mary research vessel the Polly-L
has been the subject of many news
stories, including a segment on
Good Morning America. In the past
couple of years, members of the
company have taken slide show pre-
sentations and actual artifacts to sev-
eral high schools and college-spon-
sored groups inll Northeast Florida.
While telling the story of the adven-
ture, the presentation also empha-
sizes that looking for treasure, like
any worthwhile pursuit, requires
skills that are learned in school -
chemistry, math, biology, history,


geography, physics, archeology and
lots of reading and research. It's a
"Stay in School" message that is
memorable.
Come to the Maritime Museum
of Amelia Island at 1325 S. Eighth St
See some of the treasures, the cut-
ting edge and locally designed tech-
nology, and meet some of the adven-
turers who have spent a
quarter-century to come to this one
moment in time.

RV opinions


Well, I have listened to the debaLf
for a couple of weeks. So I thinkI
have formed an opinion.
First let me say I am a Fernaj-
dina native and an RV'er.
It seems that the 60-plus acres of
land in question close to the golf
course needs to have something
done to it Why? Is leaving it alone
such a bad thing? Are we given three
choices? Well, here is what I would
pick:
Leave, the property alone. Lt
the little critters keep their home
and let the trees do their thing., s
there a law saying this land must
be developed?
RV resort. As an RV'er myself
"I know for a fact that RV resorts aide
very pleasing to the eye and land-
scaped beautifully. Believe me, when
I shop around for an RV resort to
stay in my husband and I always
look at pictures of the facilities on
the websites. The most popular
resorts are the ones who have
designed the camping area around
the existing environment and have
cut as few trees as possible. RV folks
as a whole are courteous to the com-
munity they visit, respectful of the
environment, clean and polite to
their neighbors. Of all the vacations
I have taken over my life I remem-
ber the RV trips with the fondest
memory. Meeting people from all
parts of the world and forming new
friendships that last a lifetime. RV
folks are good people.
Condo/apartments. This
would be my least favorite choice.
Concrete, concrete, concrete. Or
maybe-another cookie-cut neigh-
borhood of homes? No thanks.

Re: The viewpoint by Bob
Allison, "Straight talk about the pro-
posed RV park," April 17.
Mr. Allison outlined a number of
subjective observations regarding
his not-for-profit desire to develop an
RV park on the island. Much of the
content highlighted the intrinsic
benefits to RV owners concluding
that there is little difference between
a low-density RV resort and a quiet
residential subdivision. While I pe'-
sonally find that comparison debat-
able on its face, because the pro-
posed project is a large one which
seemingly will alter the current char-
acter of the island, expertise and a
long-term commitment by Mt'.
Allison to the island's other proper-
ty owners and citizens are of
extreme importance to any discus-
sion. Aside from justifying feasibili-
ty studies yet to be undertaken by
Mr. Allison, the results of which I am
sure will be made readily available
to all, I would welcome comment
from Mr. Allison on the following
core issues that are deemed factually
important to his proposal.
Does Mr. Allisontha i. \-e. li i
in managing outdoor hospitality
properties?
If not, does Mr. Allison intend to
engage a management company?:
Does Mr. Allison have financing
in place?
Will there be other investors?
Will Mr. Allison be the majority
owner of the entity owning and oper-
ating the park?
Is the ultimate ownership group
objective to develop and stabilizel
the property for sale?
Thank you for providing tlt.
venue for this, as well as other, com-

Budget deliberations at the Legislature


The seventh week of session
brought the last round of com-
mintee lit ,i i 11..ind more time
on the House floor. HB 1225
was placed on its final commit-
tee agenda for Tuesday, the
same day that my dad was
scheduled to have surgery. I
had already made arrange-
ments to be at the hospital with
him, so I was grateful when Rep.
Matt Gactz (a cosponsor for the
bill) agreed to present HB 1225
in the State. Affairs Committee.
For the third time, the bill
passed the committee unrani-
mously. This bill places more
power into the hands of small
business owners and citizens
when they seek to appeal deci-
sions of state government.
Our prayers were answered,
and my Dad came through the
surgery with no complications.
Just like many families, what
affects one member of the fam-
ily impacts everyone. We all
pray for a good outcome any-
time a family member is sched-
uled for surgery.

cess, led by the respective
appropriations chairs and mem-
bers of the education commit-
tees.
Wednesday was a long day.
We spent nine hours on the
House floor hearing over 70
bills. One of those bills was HB
441, which relatedto educa-
tional standards and require-
ments for youthful offenders in
a DJJ facility. The focus of this
bill is to better prepare individ-
uals in state care to live more
productive lives after being
released from custody in a juve-
nile justice facility.
This bill seeks to provide
career and technical training,
and it increases accountability
measures to ensure desired out-
comes are being achieved. For-
mer State Sen. Steve Wise filed
a similar bill last legislative ses-
sion, and I have been honored
to work with Sen. Aaron Bean
as the Senate sponsor this year.
I believe education has the
power to transform lives and is
a game changer for those under
the care of the Department of
Juvenile Justice. This change, I
believe, will help us get these
young offenders back on track
and help lead to more produc-
tive outcomes.
HB 441 passed the House of
Representatives with a vote of
115 to 0 and is now ready to be
heard in the Senate. The Senate
companion bill, SB 960, is
scheduled to be heard in its final
Senate committee in week
eight. While we are almost fin-
ished with this legislation, we
are still working on a budget
appropriation of $1.6 million to
support its implementation.
Sometimes in this process,
there are issues that have no
advocacy group to fight for
them. It is important that law-
makers balance the public inter-
ests. Improving education for
juvenile offenders can help open
the doors to a brighter future
and provide greater chances of
reducing the path towards
prison for many of these youth.
The biggest highlight for
Wednesday was seeing over 20
members of the Amelia Island
Daughters of the American
Revolution at the State Capitol.
It was delightful to see so many
friendly faces and to be greeted,
so warmly, by people back
home. I enjoyed talking with
them and posing for pictures
outside the House Chambers. I
still appreciate Unda Davis who,
just a couple of years ago,
helped me trace my ancestry
back to the.American Revolu-


tion. I am proud to be a member
of this terrific group of ladies.
The DAR reminds me of the
legacy that we as Americans
have to the next generation and
how the history of this nation
shapes the decisions we make
today
We returned to the House
floor Thursday morning with a
much smaller agenda. Although
the number of bills was small,
the content was more con-
tentious, and members engaged
in a lot of debate. HB 351, deal-
ing with Application of Foreign,
Law, was the first bill consid-
ered. This bill provides that any
legal decision or contract pro-
vision is void and unenforceable
if it is based upon a foreign law
or system that does not grant
the parties the same protections
guaranteed by the state and fed-
eral constitutions.
In other words, any decision
based on any law, legal code or
system that does not grant the
parties affected the same fun-
damental liberties, rights and
privileges granted under the
Florida Constitution and the
U.S. Constitution violates public
policy of the state of Florida and
is void and unenforceable. I am
a cosponsor to this bill, and I
was pleased when it passed the
House with a vote of 79 yeas to
39 nays.
Just as we were concluding
our work on the House floor,
the Appropriations chair an-
nounced that the Senate presi-
dent and House speaker had
agreed on budget allocations
for each category of the budget.
Speaker Weatherford announ-
ced the budget conferees and
informed the members that
budget deliberations would
begin at 5:30 p.m.
I had previously submitted a
letter requesting to serve as a
budget conferee on the Educa-
tion Appropriations Budget
Conference and was honored
to have my request granted.
This would mean, however, that
I -would need to stay in Talla-
hassee through the weekend.
This provides me with a chance
to have a voice in helping shape
the final education budget.
The hardest part of serving
in Tallahassee is telling my chil-
dren that I would not be coming
home later that day because of
my responsibilities in the budg-
et conference process. I had
shared with themmy work to'
get .'1.2 million in state funding
for Communities In Schools
(CIS), and they understood that
if I stayed in Tallahassee Iwould


have a greater chance of secur-
ing funding for this terrific pro-
gram.
Communities In Schools cur-
rently serves 14 counties,
including Nassau County. In
2011-12, they served nearly
35,000 students, 84 i5ercent of
which were minority students.
I am personally familiar with
their "homework club" at Fer-
nandina Beach Middle School,
and I appreciate the hard work
of their many volunteers.
Communities In Schools had
received state funding until 2007
when budget cuts were neces-
sary, and it was my desire to
see them restored to their 2007
level of funding. We were start-
ing a bit "behind the eight ball"
because there was no funding in
either the House or Senate
budget recommendations.
Nevertheless, I knew what the
outcome would be if I did noth-
ing. I hacd already shared my
priorities with the House
Education Appropriations Chair
Erik Fresen, staff, the Duval
delegation, fellow representa-
tives and even some senators
serving on the budget confer-
ence.
Friday afternoon the House
presented its first budget offer
to the Senate, and I was excited
to see $1.2 million for.Commu-
nities In Schools and $1.6 mil-
lion for implementation of HB
441 for juvenile justice pro-
grams. Now, I had to wait to see
if the Senate would accept these
items.
While my son and I often
enjoy watching the evening
news together, followed by an
episode of the "Andy Griffith
Show," the sacrifice my family
had to make was a small price to
pay when we had a chance to
open the doors to success for
many kids who are struggling
with homework and need the
services provided by Communi-
ties In Schools.
Of course, one of my biggest
priorities this session was to
secure funding for the St. Johns
River Ferry. We had been suc-
cessful in getting a budget line
item in both* the House and
Senate budgets ($1 million and
$500,000 respectively). After
securing budget positions in
both chambers, we were able
to work with Governor Scott
and Department of Transporta-
tion Secretary Prasad to allo-
date $1 milli6t in capital funding
from existing, department
resources for the St. Johns River
Ferry I believe the budget line
items were a critical link in final-


ly securing funding for the ferry,
The next budget conference
occurred at 10 a.m. on Saturday
morning. I quickly scanned the
spreadsheet looking for the CIS
and juvenile justice funding.
Thankfully, the Senate had
accepted the CIS line item of
$1.2 million. Although they kept
the $1.6 million for the juvenile
justice programs, they appro-
priated it from the Educational
Enhancement Trust Fund and
not from general revenue. This;
was problematic and would
require additional negotiation.
Saturday morning passed'
quite quickly with reviewing 29
pages of incredibly small print
containing the first Senate offer
for the K-20 Education budget
and working on compromise
language for budget conforming
bills.
The afternoon, however, was
a different story. The hours
dragged by as I periodically
checked for an email calling us
back to a budget conference
meeting. Finally, word came
that we would not meet until
Sunday.
The conference process is a
negotiated process and requires
timing, commitment and pay-
ing attention to the details. After
many hours spent in the Capitol,
I was satisfied we are headed in
the right direction on educa-
tion.
As we head towards "sine
die," the final stretch will find
many members tired. Having.
been away from their homes,
businesses and jobs, they are
ready to wrap up the work and
get life back to normal. This is,
however, when you need that
second wind because as we
head towards the finish line,
this, is the time we will see the
amendments fly; the debate
becomes more intense: and,
important decisions get made in
hours and minutes. Standing
firm on the decisions you make
and fighting for the people back
home is always at the forefront
of my thoughts. As you form an
opinion on the many issues
affecting Florida, be sure to
share them with your elected
officials. It is helpful to hear
from you and, in many instan-
ces, your email or phone call
could change the course of
events.
I love that we have a political
process that is truly open and
transparent ilth- ..-.ipl,: v.iho

Hanging out


Sometimes on nice spring
evenings I am not interested
in going out with friends, or
watching television or read-
ing inside. Sometimes I just
want to "hang out."
So I take my giant
Brazilian hammock off the
shelf and affix it to two strong
eyebolts on my backyard
gazebo and climb aboard.
This hammock could sleep a
family of five in Brazil but at
my size it's just fine for one
person, with the edges folded
over me to keep me warm.

and a com-
fortable pil-
low with my
camera
nearby and
I'm all set to
watch the
backyard
W MLD scene
unfold.
WAYS Ifit's a
.... busy week-
end on
Pat Amelia
Foster- trley Island, the
first sound I
hear I can't avoid it is the
sound of car after car after car
barreling down Simmons
Road just past my pond and
fence. And then, being close
to the airport, the sounds of
planes landing and taking off
also fill the air.
S But soon enough I tune
out these sounds and listen
instead to the nature that
brought me here in the first
place. As the sky begins to
darken many of the creatures
come to life. At first it's the
frogs I hear. Usually there is
at least one bullfrog croaking
on the other side of the pond
near the outflow. It's a lonely
frog, I think. I've never heard
another one answering this
plaintive call, but maybe as
spring advances the calls
might attract a mate from a
nearby golf course pond.
Here's hoping, anyway.
Off in the woods the owls.
are beginning to wake up on
their night shift. At least two
species of owls barred owls
and great horned owls -
inhabit our backyard woods.
The "Who Cooks for You"
calls of the barred owls and
the "Hoo Hoo Hoo" calls of
the great horned owls vie for
girtime fronm,different ar-as
of the forest. It's always good"
to know they are out there


patrolling for rats that other-
wise like to move into my
attic.
Occasionally I hear flocks
of geese flying by overhead
too. Their honking calls alarm
me I don't want them set-
tling in my'pond. Canada
geese should be heading
back north now, not staying
here year-round on our golf
courses and retention ponds.
If they seem to be landing on
my turf, I do my best to dis-
courage them.
Often I hear other unrec-
ognizable sounds from the
pond edge or the woods, vari-
ous chirps and rustling in the
woods, and branches moving
in the wind. It's fun, really, not
to know what-everything is,
and just to know that nature is
alive and around me.
If I am really lucky out in
my backyard, sometimes I
even hear splashes of water
and I know the otters are vis-
iting me again. These critters
roam up and down Amelia
Island and travel from pond to
pond. Our pond seems to be
at the fringe'of their territory,
only worth a visit every few
weeks. I know they come that
often by the piles of scat they
deposit on the path where
they enter the pond from the
woods. It is rare to see them,
but when I am enveloped in
my hammock motionless they
don't see me, and they come
close to my side of the pond
where I can watch them.
It's not only the sounds
that intrigue me as I lie in my
hammock it's the visual
splendor of it all as well. In
spring the yellow and purple
Louisiana irises are blooming
along the edge of the pond
and white native "Easter
lilies" (aka zephyr lilies) and
various wildflowers fill in the
foreground. Behind me, the
red sages and purple and
white lantana are already in
bloom in my butterfly garden
waiting for takers. Above me,

and the last remnants of white
Lady Banks roses frame the
sides. Not far away, sweet pea
vines covered with flowers fill
the air with their delicate
scent and wait for me to cut
them and bring them into the
house to fill my vases.
If I want, I don't even have
to be a careful observer. I can
just let the motion of the rock-
ing hammock, the wildlife
sounds, the scents of flowers
and the darkening sky lull me
into a before-dinner nap.
Yes, folks, this is my
favorite way to "hang out" on
Amelia Island. It just doesn't
get any better than this!

Yulee student, 15,


arrested for making

'makeshift bomb'


GARRETIT PELICAN
Nev's- Leader

A 15-year-old Yulee Middle
School student was arrested
on a felony charge after build-
ing and setting off a makeshift
bomb on the campus before
class Thursday morning,
according to a deputy's report.
The student, who is not
being identified by the News-
Leader because he's a juve-
nile, is charged with making
and throwing a destructive
device, according to an arrest
report.
About 8:55 a.m. Thursday,
the student reportedly placed
tin foil and "Works" drain
cleaner in a plastic bottle,
shook it up and threw it
toward a Dumpster between
two buildings on campus, the


report said. A school resource
officer directing traffic heard
"the explosion from the street
in front of the school ...
approximately 200 yards
away," according to the report.
Nobody was hurt by the
blast and there was no prop-
erty damage tied to the inci-
dent, the report said.
The teen allegedly told
school officials and investiga-
tors he had made the "device"
using drain cleaner, tin foil and
plastic bottles, deputies said.
He realized he had a bottle of
drain cleaner in his knapsack
and just decided to make one
at school, he reportedly told
investigators.
A couple of juvenile wit-
nesses told investigators they
had seen the student make
the device before shaking it
up and throwing it at the
Dumpster, deputies said. A
search of the scene found a

T he Nassau Sport
Fishing Association
held the awards
portion of the 2013
annual Black Drum Fishing
Tournament April 24. Young
Jacob Jones was presented
the winner's check for his
first-place black drum that
weighed 85.05 pounds.
Jones is a multiple winner
of the event
and so is his
*father, John.
Michael
Foster took
second-place
honors with
a 76.60-
pound black
drum and
OUTDOORS James
S Raysor took
e third with
Te av cacoss his 75.3-
pound black drum. Bqth
Foster and Raysor are also
repeat winners in the annual
black drum fishing tourna-
ment.
"We have caught most of
our big drum during the full
or new moon, when there is
plenty of current along the
beaches," Jones said. "Our
bait of choice is half a blue
crab fished right on the bot-
tom, which is often sweet- '
ened with a large fresh
shrimp or conch.
"We also look for the best
drum fishing to come just
after sunset while fishing just
off north beach in 18 feet of
water. A strong incoming tide
is best, which triggers a big
drum bite and spawn."
Capt. Allen Mills skippers
the.local charter fishing boat
"Wahoo," specializing in cobia
fishing during the late spring
and early summer fishing sea-
sons. Mills presented an
informative cobia fishing
seminar following the NSFA
drum tournament awards.
"My favorite type of fish-
ing is sight fishing for cobia,"
Mills said. 'There is absolute-
ly no other type of saltwater
fishing that is as exciting as
cobia fishing during late
spring and the early summer
fishing season. And what is so
special about cobia fishing is
that you catn sight fish for
them.
"My boat's tuna tower
gives me a 20-foot advantage
when sight fishing, which is
almost a must when hunting
down Amelia Island cobia.
Keep in mind that the hunt-
ing portion of cobia fishing is
also a challenge that our char-
ters enjoy."
Some of Amelia Island's
best cobia fishing is found at
the mouth of the St Marys
inlet, where channel markers
are a huge attraction for local

cobia. Also the beaches of
Amqelia Island are a huigec
magnet for cobia; numerous
schools of lmenhaden offer a
giant food base for foraging
cobia.
Cobia.will typically hold
right on the surface and,
while cruising the surface,
will create a large wake in the
water. Mills' tuna tower is a
big advantage for spotting
cobia cruising along the sur-
face or holding just under the
surface.
Mills also had on hand to
both demonstrate and person-


ally show all who attended his
s<-inar the rccolilment'ded
fishing tackle, lures and baits
for targeting local cobia.
"I prefer a seven-foot medi-
um heavy action spinning rod
outfitted with a wide spool
spinning reel filled with 40-
pound braided fishing line,"
Mills said. "I also attach a six-
foot length of 50-pound fluoro-
carbon shock leader to the
tag end of the braided fishing
line.
"My absolute favorite plug
for catching cobia is a large
saltwater chugger. Cobia are


absolutely awesome when '. wea th<: i d watqr teimpera.


striking a surface chugger,
often leaping out of the water
with the plug deep in their
mouth."
Mills also demonstrated
how to rig surface plugs,
large led head feathered jigs
rigged with a plastic tail and
dead menhaden to a led head
jig for cobia fishing.
S Cobia are just now begin-
ning to show up in Northeast
Florida waters and maybe a
little later than most cobia
seasons, which can be
blamed in part to the cold


tares; '
The present Florida
Wildlife Commission regula-
tions allow saltwater fisher-
men to keep one cobia per
day measuring at least 33
inches to the fork of the tail.
There is also a maximum
daily vessel bag limit of six
cobia per clay. For informa-
tion, visit www.imyfwc.com.

by a delicious grilled shrimpp

Turtle tale proves it's a small world after all


It is a small world, even for sea
turtles. My sister lives in Boston and
we share a love of nature and its
creatures and, as it turns out, espe-
cially sea turtles. She is an active vol-
unteer at the busy New England
Aquarium where she conducts tours
for visitors and volunteers at an of.f-
site marine animal care facility.
Throughout the'winter she has
been helping care for a record num-
ber of cold stunned turtles,. The log-
gerhead, Kemp's Ridley and green
sea turtles, all threatened or endan-
gered species, were rescued during
annual programs to find "cold-
stunned" sea turtles on Cape Cod
beaches. Like people suffering
hypothermia, the turtles would have
:died if not for the aid. All of the
stunned creatures got blood tests


I


and X-rays. Many
needed injuries
treated or antibi-
otics for lung
issues. All were
hand-fed and
watched closely
when offered their
S first "swims" in
FROM kiddy pools. It was
THE a five-month course
of rest and rehab
PORCH involving hundreds
.- ...- of volunteers and
Dickie many other rescue
Anderson organizations and
SAnderson aquariums.


My volunteer time has been spent
on early morning patrol looking) for
fresh turtle nests. Once a nest is
found, volunteers mark it with dcis-


tinctive yellow tape, date it and wait
for the eggs to hatch roughly 60 clays
later. Mary Duffy, who coordinates
the well organized Amelia Island Sea
Turtle Watch, is getting ready for
another season starting the begin-
ning of May.
According to Duffy, "This organi-
zation is a tightly knit group of com-
munity members who see the impor-
tance of preserving this important
part of the island's natural heritage.
Sea turtles have been around for 100t)
million years. They were on this
island long before us."
A few weeks ago my sister called
with the news that some of HER tur-
tles were coming to one of MY
beaches. She reported a caravan
loaded with over 50 turtles was mak-
ing its way to from Boston to Florida


and picking up other turtles along
the way in Connecticut, Maryland
and Virginia. She was not sure where
they were going to be released and
alerted me to stay tuned.
You have probably guessed it.
The turtles were released on Little
Talbot Island a few miles south of
our home. The rescue program
picked Little Talbot Island because of
its location in an area where the tur-
tles naturally migrate and the water
is warm enough this time of year for
their re-entry. The crates were
unloaded and lined up on the beach.
Those there describe the amazing
scene. It seemed the turtles could
sense the ocean close by and startled
rattling their cages. Nothing happens
fast in the turtle world, but once
released they all made their way into


the welcoming ocean.
What an amazing story. Turtles
hand-fed and cared for in Boston by
my sister made the long trip by cara-
van to the sandy beaches of Little '
Talbot Island. What a small world,
indeed. Many of those same turtles
will be migrating back to New
England for the summer. Let's hope
this year they have learned their les-
son and will head back south before
the weather turns cold!

topic of final Wild Nite


"The Amazing Horseshoe
Crab," the mascot for the sev-
enth annual Wild Amelia
Nature Festival from May 17-
19, will be the subject of dis-
cussion at the final Wild Nite
of the 2012-13 monthly lec-
ture series leading up to the
festival. This last Wild Nite
will be held on Tuesday, May
14 at 7 p.m. 'at the Peck
Center Auditorium at 516
South 10th St. in Fernandin0
Beach. The guest speaker will
be Ranger Daniel Tardona,
resource interpretive special-
ist of the Timucuan Preserve.
Maligned and misunder-
stood even a subject of fear
- the strange-looking horse-
shoe crab, often called a "liv-
ing fossil," is actually helpful
to humans and to other living
things. It has existed for over
450 million years. An arthro-
pod, the horseshoe crab -
named for its shape which
resembles a horse's hoof print


- is related to spiders and
scorpions, but is harmless to
humans. With five pairs of
legs for walking, swimming
and eating, the horseshoe
crab has a long rigid tail used
to flip itself if turned upside
down. Found on the ocean
floor and in shallow bays, the
horseshoe crab swims upside
down and molts its shell annu-
ally to grow larger and reach-
es adult size in 12-15 years.
The females come to the
beach to nest, digging holes
to deposit thousands of eggs
each year. These eggs are the
primary food source for at
least 11 species of migratory
birds. Horseshoe crabs are
actually helpful to humans, as
their blue blood is used in
medical research to test for
pathogens in drugs and pros-
thetic devices. Over-harvest-
ing of female horseshoe crabs
and beach erosion has led to
a precipitous decline in some


horseshoe crab populations, a
decline that means the inigra-
tory bird food supply is also
reduced. The horseshoe crab
is important in the "circle of
life."

Mr. Meowgi is a lovable 4-
month-old brown tabby kitten
who happens to be vision
impaired. Even though his
sight is limited, his energy is
not and he is always ready for
action. A busy home would
not be a problem for Mr.
Meowgi, he would fit right in
and join (or create) the fun.
Meowgi was fostered in a
home with other cats and a
large gentle dog. He gets
along with the other cats in
the Cats Angels Adoption
Center and wears them out
with his play! If you would like
to meet Mr. Meowgi or have
questions about his limited
vision, please visit our

Dixie is a wonderful dog
who has been through a terri-
ble ordeal but hasn't lost her .
love for people. She was found
abandoned in a home, with an
injured, infected rear leg. The
infection was too severe to
save the leg, so we had it
amputated to save Dixie's life.
She is making a remarkable
recovery and now she loves
going for walks on her leash.
She still needs to undergo
heartworm treatment and to
be spayed, all of which we will
pay for. It would be wonderful
if a caring dog owner could
foster her through the treat-
ment and recovery, perhaps
with an eye toward adopting
her afterward. She is an
English Staffordshire Terrier
mix, about 2 years old, and
very good-natured despite all
she has been through. She's
very affectionate and seems to
appreciate that she has been
rescued. She walks well on
her leash and likes to do her
business outside, so she may
be housetrained. She has a
beautiful, butterscotch-col-
ored coat with a touch of
brindle markings, and she's a
fine size for a house dog. You
can help Dixie return to good
health and show her that her
faith in people was ultimately (,
justified. Please contact us at
321-1647 or
adoptnhs@yahoo.com, or
come on over and meet Dixie.

HOME & GARDEN BRIEFS


Farmers markets

The Amelia Farmers
Market will be open its regu-
lar hours on Saturday during
the Isle of 8 Flags Shrimp
Festival, with all its award-win-
ning vendors. Joining on
Saturday will be new vendor
Artisan Black Garlic, one of
only a few producers of black
garlic in the United States.
Korean culture, famous for
kimchi, has perfected the art
of fermentation, patiently
coaxing the flavors of every-
day food to a new level. Not
surprisingly, the origin of
black garlic started in Korea,
After aging for at least 30
days, it possesses a carameliz-
ed, savory richness that has a
mouth feel similar to eating a
date. Because it's sweet and
mild, it's hard to believe
you're eating garlic at all.
Artisan Black Garlic has
taken the use of black garlic
to a new level with its creation
of Black Garlic Vinegar, fea-
turing an exorbitant amount of
black garlic infused in balsam-
ic vinegar of Modena. They
also offer fresh Lemon and
Ginger married in a white bal-
samic vinegar of Modena and
golden Florida orange blos-
som honey and blended white
balsamic and seasoned rice
wine vinegar, infused with
spices of India and South Asia
including ginger, garlic,
turmeric, lemon grass, kiefer
lime leaves, cardamon, cinna-
mon, cumin, clove and Korean
chili. Artisan Black Garlic will
be at the market just once a
month.
Also at the market May 4
will be Batch 501 Original
Sauce, rubs and Bloody Mary
mixes and the just harvested
certified organic lettuces,
salad mixes, bok choy, kale
and assorted vegetables of
Rosie's Organic Farm and
Spring Song Organic Farm. A
large variety of bedding


plants, hibiscus and landscape
material will be at the market
as well as fresh culinary herb
plants including varieties of
basil, cilantro, parsley and
more. Succulents, bromeliads,
fine ferns, begonias and beau-
tiful pots will be available at
Almost Ancient Pots. Don't
feel like cooking after a trip to
the Shrimp Festival pick up
gourmet entrees by Bottega
by Liz. Made fresh just before
market day. From petit filet
mignon with a mushroom
demi-glace to pretzel-crusted
chicken in a mustard thyme
reduction and chevre-stuffed
black bean cakes with cumin
creme fraiche, these are gour-
met dinners ready to go.
Sign up for the E-Mail
Newsletter at www.amelia-
farmersmarket.com. The 10-

Market is open every

the Shops of Omni Amelia
Island Plantation. Mingle with
local farmers and entrepre-
