Gotch-U-Tube: Car burglars on tape


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader


During the past several years,
Fernandina Beach Police officers
knew they could expect a rash of
burglaries during the summer
months of vehicles parked at city
beach accesses.
This year, Fernandina Beach
Police Chief Jim Hurley is sending
out an early warning to potential
burglars: Break into a vehicle now,
and you could find outyou've been
caught on tape.
Last month, the Fernandina
Beach Police Department was
awarded a grant of $11,000 worth
of surveillance equipment cam-
eras that can easily be moved from
one location to another.
Hurley has applied for another
grant for $6,400, and if necessary


he will use con-
fiscated drug
funds to pur-
chase addition-
al equipment.
By summer, he
expects to have
the hardware up
and running.
Hurley "If we get a
good camera up
there, we'll get
all the intelligence we need real
quick," he said. "... It helps in a lot
of ways, once you've got video, it
helps in the interview, helps you
convince people they need to coop-
erate ... it helps all around."
Increased patrolling of the areas
helped to curb the problem, but
not enough to satisfy Hurley. He
said the location of many beach
accesses makes them a prime tar-


get for burglaries.
"You can't see the vehicle once
you park it and go to the beach," he
pointed out. "And also you've got ...
condos on both the north and the
south side of the access points,
which further blocks and conceals,
giving people the sense that they
can pull in without being seen."
Hurley has other plans for the
surveillance equipment as well. He
will move the cameras around,
using them in different parts of the
city including Centre Street, Main
Beach and the skate park in
Fernandina Beach.
The department field-tested the
plan at the annual Isle of Eight
Flags Shrimp Festival last year by
putting borrowed cameras on
Centre Street during the event.

City postpones



welcome center


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners agreed Tuesday to put the
downtown Marina Welcome Center
project on hold for at least.six
months, despite having already
approved a design for the build-
ing.
The vote was 5-0 to seek an
extension for a federal grant that
would help pay for the project.
Several commissioners appar-
ently still had questions as to "what
a welcome center should be" -
Seven :o fftfitTf6 i'agreed on a
design by VIA Concepts of
Jacksonville in November.
The city-approved structure was
to be built over the current bath-
house at an estimated cost of more
than $1 million an increase of at
least $500,000 over the original esti-
mate of $487,500. According to City
Manager Michael Czymbor,
$212,500 was federal grant money.
Because the grant was to expire
in September, the commission had
recently decided to move forward
quickly with the project- perhaps
too quickly as it turns out.
Vice Mayor Joe Gerrity, who


along with Com-
missioner Bruce
Malcolm asked
the welcome
center item to be
put on the meet-
ing agenda, said
the original proj-
ect commenced
Gerrity in 2002 but
there was still a
question as to
what the center was really sup-
posed to be.
"I don't feel good about taking
money outof reserves and spend-
ing it on transient boaters," said
Gerrity.
The Boating Infrastructure
Grant Program, or BigP, which was
to partially pay for the project, is a
federalgrant geared to assist mari-
nas to attract visiting boaters.
Commissioners, however, have
argued that the center should also
be usable for the community.
"It is clear to me that this com-
mission is incompetent when it
comes to deciding what awelcome
center is," said Commissioner Ron
Sapp. "I'm so frustrated with this,

Study: Moving logs


by rail is efficient


GLENDA S. JENKINS'
News-Leader


A privately funded study early
last year found that transferring
logs from trucks to rail resulted in
increased efficiency for the truck-
ers and less log truck traffic on
A1A to the paper mills in
Fernandina Beach.
For the log truckers, it reduced
turnaround time and allowed more
trips to the rail transfer station on
US 17.
"It worked out very well," said
Chuck Higginbotham, general
manager, mechanical, for First
Coast Railroad's office on Gum
Street in Fernandina Beach. 'The
log company we used trimmed
down considerable turnaround
time and decreased their liability in
traffic on A1A."
The six-week trial, conducted
during February and March last
year at the rail transfer station on
US 17 North, involved one log


truck company. Although other
companies asked to be included,
"It was a closed test,"
Higginbotham said, for a controlled
experiment.
Test data showed that a log
truck could increase its trips from
three to five or six runs a day,
Higginbotham said. The experi-
ment began timing a truck from
its entrance into the US 17 facility
through its departure, while simul-
taneously measuring the time of a
partner log truck continuing to a
paper mill via ALA.
It took approximately 28 min-
utes for a log truck to unload at
the rail transfer facility. It took
about two or three hours "before
their partner came back" from the
mill, Higginbotham said. It is "less
labor intensive to unload from rail,"
he said.

Elizabeth Hunter Ozmer
Elizabeth Hunter Ozmer, 22, of Roanoke,
Va., danced to her Heavenly .Home on Jan. 3,
2008, to receive her heavenly reward and to
see the Face of God.
Born and raised in Roanoke, Va., Hunter
faced and conquered many challenges through-
out her life. As a youngster,
Hunter became involved with
every activity available to her,
beginning with her partici-
pation at her home church,
First Presbyterian. She sang
in the choir starting at the
age of four and continuing
through age 18. Singing to
"her Lord' was a powerful
way for Hunter to worship. Hunter also partic-
ipated in the church's youth fellowship pro-
gram. Hunter's passion for her church ran so
deep she asked to become a church member at
an uncommonly young age. The sense of
urgency Hunter felt to be a full-fledged church
member was a result of her early decision to
give her life to Christ. Hunter's faith was a con-
stant source of excitement, joy and strength.
Because of the many physical limitations
Hunter, had to accept, she blossomed into an
inspiring, generous helper. She helped with
Bible School each summer, both for her church
as well as other churches in the Valley. Hunter
also worked for many years as an afternoon
tutor at the Presbyterian Community Center
and helped in the church's food pantry.
In Junior High, Hunter attended Hidden
Valley Junior High and wanted so badly to be
involved in school sports. Due to the physical
limitations of Niemann-Pick Type C, she was not
able to participate in any contact sports.
Because of Hunter's positive outlook and belief
that "All Things Are Possible," she was adamant
about showing her school spirit and she became
an invaluable supporter in other ways. In junior
high, she was manager of the HVJH girls' vol-
leyball team, attending each daily practice and
game. Hunter was a member of Hidden Valley
High School's first graduating class, and she
was thrilled to be the squad manager for the
HVHS Cheerleaders, fulfilling her dream of
being part of the cheerleading squad. Hunter
did not allow her disability to overshadow her
many abilities, and she gave her all in every sit-
uation, always the No. 1 Fan.
Having lived with Niemann-Pick Disease
Type C for 22 years, Hunter never failed to see
the positive or put those around her at ease
with her situation. She was quick to offer
encouragement, gratitude or empathy when
they were needed. Her smile and sense of well-
being were infectious and people were drawn
to Hunter.
Left to cherish Hunter's memory are her
parents, Hunt and Annette Poore Ozmer;
beloved sister, McNair Ozmer; beloved Bosnian
sister, Vedrana Vasilj, New York; maternal
grandparents, Bob and Nancy Poore; paternal
grandmother, Elizabeth Stover Ozmer; aunts
and uncles, Rick and Cindy Poore Scaggs,
Robert and Dana Poore, Gordon and Anne
Marie Poore, Jim and Ann Ozmer, and Rick
Ozmer; cousins, Travis Dossett, Alexandra and
Robby Poore, Amelia, Romey and Selden Poore,
and Adam Ozmer. Hunter was predeceased by
her paternal grandfather, James M. Ozmer.
Hunter left this Earth knowing she was
.loved here on Earth and that an even greater
love and comfort awaited her with the Lord


whom she loves wholly and completely.
"Blessed are the pure of heart; for they shall see
God."
A service of Thanks to God and a
Celebration of Hunter's life took place at 2 p.m.
Jan. 7, 2008, at First Presbyterian Church,
Roanoke. The Rev. Robert Smith conducted
the service. Friends and family were invited to
visit the family immediately afterward in the
Fellowship Hall.
For those who wish, memorial gifts may be
given to the National Niemann-Pick Foundation,
PO. Box 49, Ft. Atkinson, WI 53538, or online
at www.nnpdf.org, or to the First Presbyterian
Church of Roanoke Building Fund, 2101 South
Jefferson St., Roanoke, VA 24014. To post mes-

Maritime trade
GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
The Nassau County Ocean
Highway and Port Authority has
approved funding to establish a
legally registered maritime trade
association.
Board members voted unani-
mously Wednesday to allocate "an
amount not to exceed $4,000" for
the creation of the Port of
Fernandina Maritime Association.
"It's all about getting people
together who have a vested inter-
est in the maritime industry to
exchange information," Vice
Chair Danny Leeper said. "What
I'm looking for is a group of peo-
ple who have interest in port-relat-
ed activities," including banks,
environmental engineering firms,
tugboat operators, harbor pilots
and other industries with directly
- or indirectly related activities.
Funds will cover fees.for an
attorney to legally register the
association as a 501(c)6, to cre-
ate bylaws and move ahead with
the election of officers. Funding

Gandy asked during a Wednesday
meeting for information about
alternatives to A1A for transport-
ing logs to Fernandina paper mills.
Rising fuel prices will serve as
an incentive for log truck compa-
nies and the paper/pulp industry
to look for alternatives to reduce
costs, Port Commissioner Ron
Braddock said. He estimates it
costs about 70 cents per mile, with
fuel at $3.50 per gallon, to trans-
port logs by truck.
'That's a lot of money to spend
on fuel," he said. Using the rail
transfer facility would create "a
lot of savings all around."

The maritime association will
play a role in strategic planning.
As JaxPort creates more jobs, "It
will have a regional impact,"
Leeper said. "We need to brace
for it and Nassau County needs to
plan for it."
Representatives from various
maritime businesses and organi-
zations attended the meeting to
voice their support for the asso-
ciation.
"I think we really need to move
on it," said Frank Cueto, manager
for Seaboard Marine's North
Florida region. The benefits of a
maritime association would
"extend far beyond our time here
to bring business to the port."
"It's needed," said Bill
Kavanaugh, representing the
Cumberland Sound Pilot
Association. "It would be very
helpful to have a conduit of infor-
mation that would flow back and
forth" between member organi-
zations.

possibility of conducting a larger

'Traffic is going to be a mess,"
Higginbotham said. Taking 300
trucks a day off the road "will be

Making the enterprise suc-

I can't imagine what people at
home are thinking. Whenever the
state dangles a grant in front of
you, you shouldn't just start to
salivate.
"I opposed it from the begin-
ning," he added. "We beefed up
the welcome center, but at no
point did anyone say what they
wanted it to look like."
"It's tiring, it's wearisome," said
Gerrity. "It was brought back (to
the commission) that we had to
make a quick decision.... We need
to build something that the tax-
payers can use."
Marina Director Coleman
Langshaw said the project was
originally to contain a marine edu-
cation center, but the concept was
changed over the past six years.
"Ultimately I want to see the
project get done," he said after
the meeting. "I understand the
reason for (the commission) tak-
ing a step back.... The intent was
to do more (with the welcome cen-
ter) than commissioners want to
do."
"Last time we talked about this,
the location and the saving of open
space was more important than
the cost," said Commissioner Ken
Walker. "I'm not opposed to asking
for an extension, but I don't antic-
ipate (a welcome center) happen-
ing. We've certainly attempted to
hash it out. I still have that hope."
Czymbor asked commission-
ers for "some clear direction" on
how to move forward. Asked
about his own vision for a wel-
come center, he said he envi-
sioned a building that was an "eco-
nomic driver" for the community,
with educational components,
Internet access, restrooms and
laundry facilities. The restrooms
and laundry facilities are to be in

"If the commission wants to
ask for an extension," he added,
"let's proceed and get this project
over. with."
In an e-mail to Patricia Harrell,
grant specialist for the Florida
Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission, Czymbor said, "The
projected cost to construct a build-
ing in the waterfront area as well
as the uncertainty of the property
tax reform impacts on local gov-
ernment are prompting the recon-
sideration of the type of structure
and feature that will be offered in
the building."
Harrell said in an e-mail to
Czymbor that "deviation from the
current project elements (plans)
would require an amendment to
the grant agreement between the
Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission and
the United States Fish & Wildlife
Service, and then a contract
amendment between the FWC
and the city."
She added the grant extension
would have to be prior to the con-
tract amendment, and would take
at least three months to process.
She also noted that the city could
submit a request for either a six-
month or one-year extension.
Czymbor also said the city
could move ahead with renovating
the current bathhouse, as it was
part of the original BigP applica-
tion. He said in an e-mail there
was $122,500, with $37,500 from
grants, available to modernize the
restroom, shower, laundry facili-
ties and mechanical room. The
building could also receive some
cosmetic improvements such as
interior painting and new. floor-
ing.

Rash of car burglaries:

Take precautions
Following a rash of nighttime vehicle burglaries in "the Fernandina
Beach area," Nassau County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves has asked
people to use caution when leaving their vehicles unattended.
Seagraves said vehicles should be parked in a secure garage; if
that's not possible, owners should try to park them in well-lighted
areas.
Vehicles should always be locked and any valuables should be
taken out of the car.
"If you are unable to remove your valuables, try to conceal them
in the truck or console so that an opportunist may not see them,"
Seagraves said. '
If a vehicle has an alarm system, it should be set so that it will
sound if a burglar attempts to enter the vehicle.
Seagraves also asks anyone who notices suspicious activity to
contact the Nassau County Sheriffs Office at 225-5174, or (904)
879-3853 in Callahan, Hilliard or Bryceville.


CAMERA Continued from 1A
Hurley liked what he saw.
"It was actually streaming video
and we could view Centre Street,
we could view all the way down to
the maiina," he said. 'Those types
of things are valuable in the event
something might happen, and it
gives folks a sense of security."
One of the benefits of being able
to move the cameras around, Hurley
said, is that he can .switch from
covert surveillance to public sur-
veillance; sometimes he will publi-
cize the locations, other times he
will order the cameras hidden and
keep them a secret.
I It's not just vehicle burglaries
Hurley hopes to address; the videos
could be used to tackle other crime
trends as well. Videotape of criminal
acts aids the process of arresting
and prosecuting a suspect, whether
the crime was burglary, vandalism

or rape, he said.
He also hopes the knowledge
that some areas are under surveil-
lance will serve as a deterrent to at
least some potential criminals.
Hurley said he will not use any of
his budget money allocated by the
city for the approximately $20,000
project. More than half the cost has
already been covered by the grant
of $11,000 in equipment.
Hurley hopes to be awarded the
additional $6,400 grant, and then
take the remaining amount from
the department's Law Enforcement
Trust Fund, which is made up of
confiscated drug money.
"This is good, because it fits what
we've identified as a need," he said,
"and it fits in our strategy of devel-
oping a video environment that is
flexible and will allow us to move
cameras around as needed to
address crime trends, to address
specific concerns or special events."

When the cowbell rings, turn


those perfect shoes for home


It's the phone call you never
look forward to. A dear friend
of many long years had
passed away.
I pulled out my all-occasion
brown wraparound dress. Thank
goodness my sister gave it to me
last year. It fits no matter what
diet's been followed this week.
Shoes, not so good.
Knee problems have kept
heels out of my closet. For two
years the search has been on for
a trendy pair of heels. Being able
to walk in them is a prerequisite
and without having three weeks
recovery time. Even more tricky
is finding a size 11.
On the off chance that my
two-year streak could be broken,
the car veered into the Payless
Shoes parking lot. Having ugly
shoes for Mrs. Mac's funeral
might sound superficial, but if
you knew her, you would under-
stand. The extra effort would be
appreciated. She was quite the
sharp dresser.
I ran in and scanned over the
"big foot" section of the store.
There they were. Staring at me
like the golden ticket. Sliding
them on, my feet and the style


police found
happiness.
Perfect fit
and the'
bonus was
being able to
'walk in them
without wob-
bling.

since grammar school. She was a

loved to shop and to accessorize.

it didn't matter what the outfit,
the shoes had to be just right.

capacity to-live, but not her zest

carefully made. An enthusiastic
fan of her boys' football days, she
lead the cheering section with an
always obnoxious ringing cowbell

old high school days we shared.
Theresa shopped online when
she could no longer stroll the
malls. In his-eulogy, Keith, her
oldest son, said, "Dad's going to
bereceiving gifts she ordered for
many months to come." It
delighted her heart to give.

have changed at her funeral was
that we-couldn't see her shoes
matched her lavender suit. And
the fact that we did not ring a
cowbell in her honor."
We Will all remember her

Dim bulb won't cut thr


Sao there I was, driving along through Big
Talbot Island one foggy morning recently.
Perhaps driving is too strong of a term. The
fog was so heavy that the gopher tortoises
alongside the road were passing me. And those were
the dead ones.
It was one of those fogs that is so thick and mois-
ture-laden you have to hit your wipers every now
and then just to keep your windshield cleared.
Needless to say, I was driving with my headlights lit.
And if I had fog lamps, aircraft landing lights and
high intensity strobe lights, I would've had them on
as well. I have this thing about other motorists being
able to see me and I really do appreciate it when
they return the courtesy.
Actually, it's more than just a courtesy. It's a law.
And for a good reason. But the idiot who came bar-
reling toward me around 60 miles an hour obviously
believes headlights are for sissies and he wasn't hav-
ing any of that. And just to prove his prowess at navi-
gating blind, he passed the car in front of his. He
emerged from the fog like a speeding wraith and by
the grace of God, I saw him in time to head for the
shoulder, blowing my horn as I went. Hotshot gave
me the finger as he blazed past.
But, by golly, he had those parking lights on. Silly
me. I must be getting old. I guess I really should've
seen them. I reckon I deserve the bird for not notic-
ing two pale yellow specks of light smaller than my
wallet in fog so thick you could've cut it and stacked
it like firewood. I counted my blessings, checked my
shorts and got back on the road, whereupon I imme-


diately encountered several
other motorists sailing
through the mists guided only
by their damn parking lights.
If you're reading this and
You're guilty of driving around
with just your parking lights
on, you're clueless. If I could
be dictator for a day, I'd stop
every mother's son who's
doing it, confiscate their keys
and force them to walk home.
Joe Palmer Where did these nincom-
e.... poops ever get the notion that
it's OK to drive around with
CUP OF just their parking lights lit?
JOE They're called parking lights
for a reason, you know. But
lately, there seems to be an epidemic of jackasses
who've become infected with the stupid notion that
they can dispense with the much more visible and
efficient headlight so long as they've got those itty-
bitty parking lights a-twinkling. This strain of jack-
ass-ery must be contagious because I'm seeing
more of it every day.
I actually had a fellow insist to me that the dri-
ver's handbook says to use the parking lights at
dusk and dawn because it's not dark enough to use
the headlights. Huh? But what can you expect in a
state that will issue a driver's license to someone
who practically needs Braille on their gear selecter?
From a tactical and mechanical standpoint, it


ough fog

makes no sense at all. Think about it. You have to
reach down and turn the doohickey on your light
switch half a rotation for parking lights only. One
click more and Voila! you've got the real McCoy,
baby. Why settle for baloney when you can have
steak? Does it mean that you only wish to be partial-
ly visible.at the last moment? Why not be bold and
daring and throw some real light out there? Then,
when you come plunging toward me through the
meteorological equivalent of potato soup at 6 a.m., at
least I have a fighting chance to get out of your way
'without plowing up half an acre of palmetto in the
process.
I don't know why the cops don't crack down on
this. Talk about easy pickings. You don't even need
to learn how to use a radar gun. Any driver who's
damn fool enough to drive around in the dark or fog
or pouring rain'using nothing but two bulbs that
don't even rise to the level of a decent bathroom
night light has a pretty dim bulb upstairs if you ask
me. Certainly not bright enough to notice the
unmarked patrol car until he or she gets that blue
light special.
As for the brainless boob who blew past me in
the fog on Big Talbot Island and gave me the tall fin-
ger salute, I just want to know one thing. Does the
vertical display of that particular digit represent
your age, your shoe size;your IQ or your sperm
count?

Racism and greed are horrible things they get this
world into so much trouble. People tend to forget
what race they are the "human" race!
History is to learn from. It's written not to glorify
lies and people who are called "heroes" when they are
nothing more than mass murderers. Learn from the
truth, learn from history. If biblical is what you like -
that is why God told the nation of Israel to record
events to ensure that lessons are not forgotten.
Benefit from true history.
"Our fathers gave us many laws, which they had
learned from their fathers. These laws ... told us to treat
all men as they treated us; that we should never be first
to break a bargain; that it was a disgrace.to tell a lie;
thatwe should speak only the truth ... We were taught
to believe that the Great Spirit sees and hears every-
thing, and that he never forgets; that hereafter he will
give every man a spirit home according to his deserts
... This I believe, and all my people believe the same."
Young Chief Joseph of the Nez' Perce.
I am a descendant of people who love people, and
I love people. I am not racist I just know my true his-
tory. I am not anti-God, though I do believe in loving

ThanksSanta
Dear Santa, thank you for all the gifts that
my sister and I received this Christmas. We like
and enjoy the gifts. It was such a surprise to get a
bicycle.
We also enjoyed the party at the Jacksonville Zoo
for foster and adopted kids.
I enjoyed meeting you, the ice skating show, pizza
and the bead table. I had your face painted on my
cheek with glitter there.
My sister also enjoyed herself that day. She
enjoyed jumping on the blow-up jumpers, eating pop-
corn.
Love, Dayjour and Charley
(My current and former foster children ard
among manywho have benefited from the kindness of
Santa's elves over the years. It'sswonderful how the
community with the help of the special elves
manages to share with foster children. There's
nothing like the sparkle in a child's eyes when
opening a surprise package. It's the spirit of St.
Nicholas in Fernandina Beach. The children also
appreciate the wonderful community events such
as the parties sponsored by the' local bar asso-
ciation, Family Support Services' party and the
party at the Jacksonville Zoo for foster and
adopted children. Thanks to the people who planned
it, helped out and sponsored it.)

Letterboxing the new obsession


Y ou never know when some com-
pletely new phenomena will capture
your imagination. What a surprise
when my sister called full of enthu-
siasm for her newest thing. When my sister
gets enthusiastic, it is often obsessive. It is a
family trait. She is an intrepid traveler and
has researched and then traveled to some of
the most beautiful and interesting places in
the world. Sometimes I get to go too.
So what is this new thing she is in to?
Letterboxing. Letterboxing? At first, I pic-
tured some sort of martial arts discipline but
knew her better than that. Organized exer-
cise has never been one of her things.
Hiking, yes. Aerobics or yoga, no.
The more I learned about her new obses-
sion the more I could see the match. She
loves to hike and being outside, devours
maps, needs to escape her downtown
Boston digs and seeks new and unique desti-
nations.
So what is letterboxing? Think of it as a
mixture of a hike, a treasure hunt, problem
solving and a little artistic challenge all
mixed together. Letterboxers go online to
get directions that will lead them to contain-
ers that are hidden usually in beautiful out-
door settings. Off you go and try and solve
the puzzle presented. When you find the let-


terbox, that is hope-
fully a watertight box,
the adventure contin-
ues. Inside is a log-
book and rubber
stamp unique to the
box you have found.
You take your own
individual stamp,
stamp the journal in
the box, take the
Dickie Andersonistamp found in the
i person box and stamp your
nte S a logbook. The stamps
FROM THE are clever and cre-
ative and always have
PORCH a theme. Stamps vary
some are intricate
and artistic using multiple colors while oth-
ers are simple and store bought.
Letterboxing started in the moors of mid-
19th century Devon, England. A hiking
guide hid a container of letters that were
written to future hikers and left them along a
trail. It caught on and a wonderful open-air
hobby was born.
Letterboxers are a secretive sort and
shun publicity. Ironically an article in a 1998
Smithsonian magazine ignited interest in the
United States and it took off in the


Northeast and expanded into California.
People go to amazing lengths to hide a
box in a unique place and to design clever
clues that tease. Sometimes you need a com-
pass, but mostly a clever mind and a pair of
comfortable shoes.
You can letter box solo or go with a group
or your family. You can do it anywhere in the
world that someone has gone to the trouble
of hiding a letterbox.
Each letterboxer has a unique name. So
my sister, Boston B, her letterbox "handle,"
spent some of her last visit here checking
out Northern Florida's letterboxing opportu-
nities. Lo and behold, she found boxes hid-
den at Talbot Island, Fort George Island,
Fort Clinch and even Jacksonville Beach.
Her mentor cautioned her to do a lot of
searches before graduating to hiding her
first letterbox. With more then 50 finds
under her belt, she recently returned from a
trip to the very tip of South American where
she has hidden three letterboxes in the
Tierra de Fuego National Park.
Don't play golf or tennis? Maybe letter-
boxing is for you.

For plants to thrive,



soil must be just right


Q. I just got my soil test
*results back from the
University of Florida and I don't
know what the numbers are
supposed to tell me. The report
says the target pH should be
6.0-6.5. It says my soil pH is 7.0.
What does that mean? JG
A .1I am glad you called me as
-.this gave me an opportuni-
ty to clarify the test results. One
advantage to going through the
University of Florida Soils
Laboratory
is the
County
Extension
office
receives a
copy of the
results. The
target pH
means this
is the range
Beck in which
ord the plant
Jorn material
--..- (vegeta-
GARDEN bles)
TALK prefers to
grow.
Your soil
pH was at 7.0, which means it is
slightly higher or more alkaline
than the vegetables prefer. As
you read farther down the page
you will see a lime recommen-
dation. Lime is often added to
vegetable gardens to raise the
pH level or"sweeten" the soil.
Often, people add lime annually
without a soil test and soon they
notice their vegetable produc-
tion is low or poor quality. That
is why it is recommended to
have your vegetable garden soil
tested once every 2-3 years.
In the case of your garden
soil, it is suggested no lime be
added. That is the reason ayou
see a zero by lime. Soil pH is
important because most plants
have a certain range in which
they are able to absorb nutrients
from the soil as long as water is
present. If thersoil pH is too
high (alkaline) or.too low
(acidic) then the plant may not
be able to absorb specific ele-
ments such as iron or man-
ganese. This nutrient deficiency
often shows.up in the plantain,
.i-ihthe eirm-ofyellow leavesiii;
Yellow leaves occur frequently
on acid loving plants such as
azaleas, camellias or gardenias
when the soil pH is high. We
recommend using pine straw or
pine bark around the roots of
these acid loving plants as this
helps lower the pH over time.
For vegetable gardens, it is
best to use composted material
along with cow manure and
.sand to help keep pH levels at
optimal ranges.
Q My neighbor gave me
*some gorgeous pink and
white amaryllis for Christmas.


PHOTO COURTESY OF REBECCAJORDI
This illustration shows the proper pruning'cut to make on
large citrus tree branches.


She told me they could be plant-
ed in the yard. How do I take
care of these beautiful plants?
CS
A: The following information
was gleaned from a University
of Florida/IFAS publication,
titled "Amaryllis," by Dr. Sydney
Brown and Dr. Robert Black
http://edis.ifas. ufl.edu/EP060.
Amaryllis bulbs can be plant-
ed in the ground anytime
between September and
January. Amaryllis plants do
best in light or dappled shade.
In heavy shade they will be thin,
spindly and flower poorly. These
plants require well-drained soils
amended with organic matter or
compost.
Use slow-release forms of
fertilizer to minimize leaching of
nutrients into water resources.
Apply two to three light applica-
tions of fertilizer during grow-
ing season, which is March
through September. Plant the
bulbs 12 to 15 inches apart with
the neck of the bulb protruding
above the ground. Water newly
planted amaryllis and keep ,
them moist but not waterlogged
until the plants are well estab-
lished. The bulbs may be left in
the ground for several years or
dg'ad reseer--e-"t belb
or October. It is not necessary
to dig, separate and replant each
year, but doing so will encour-
age uniform flowering and larg-
er blooms. Digging also pro-
vides an opportunity to discard
unhealthy bulbs, to remove
young offsets ,(bulblets) and to
amend the bed with organic
matter. Control weeds by
spreading a 2-inch layer of
mulch over the bed at planting
time and remove any that
appear.
Q When do I prune my cit-
.rus? LB


A .In general, homegrown cit-
.rus'trees do not need for-
mal prunling.' If, however, you
wish to rejuvenate the tree then
light pruning should occur just
before a major growth flush.
Broken, cracked or diseased
branches can be removed any-
time. For complete information
regarding growing citrus in
Northeast Florida, please attend
the Nassau County Extension
program on citrus. The program
will be at the Yulee satellite
office, 86026 Pages Dairy Rd., at
10 a.m. on Wednesday. Please
call 548-1116 (Yulee) or (904)
879-1019 (Callahan) or e-mail
rljordi@ufl.edu if you plan to
attend or need directions to the
office. There is no charge for
the class. In addition to provid-
ing information regarding grow-
ing citrus we will be demon-
strating proper pruning
techniques on several large cit-
rus trees located at the
Extension Office site. The fol-
lowing is the complete Univer-

Clemens"

denialnot

convincing
"Of course he did." That
was my response to my
Dad's question when he
called me yesterday to ask
whether or not I thought
Roger Clemens had used
steroids. Clemens, who many
consider to be one of the
greatest pitchers of all time,
has strongly denied the use
of any such drugs, but was
named throughout baseball's
Mitchell report as probably
the biggest offender next to
Barry Bonds.
Clemens' former trainer,
Brian McNamee, was quoted
in the Mitchell report saying
that he injected Clemens in
the buttocks with growth
hormone and anabolic
steroids.
Clemens recently
appeared on CBS's "60
Minutes" and told reporter
Mike Wallace that the only
thing McNamee injected him
with was Vitamin B-12 and
lidocaine. He said the B-12
was something he's taken for
years for energy and the lido-
caine was for his joints.
Hogwash! Lidocaine is a
local anesthetic agent used to
"numb" an area prior to a
procedure, such as a dental
filling or sutures. It numbs
only the area where you
inject it and has no systemic
effects. So, for Clemens to
claim that he was taking lido-
caine shots in the butt to
make his joints feel better is
ludicrous.
Some have claimed that
Clemens is setting up his "I
didn't know" defense much
as Bonds did when he report-
ed that he thought he was
using flaxseed oil, which of
course turned out to be ana-
bolic steroids .
Mind you, not everyone is
csputing McNamee's claims.
He also reported that he
injected Clemens' Yankee
teammate and workout part-
ner Andy Petitte with growth
hormone as well. Petitte later
admitted that this was true
and that he did so in order to
help rehabilitate an injury.
I like to think of this as
the "Yeah, but...".defense. I
have been a physician, taking
care of athletes for years, and
never have I prescribed
growth hormone to help
recover from an injury and
know of no other physicians
who have done so either.
I believe that many ath-
letes, most of them unnamed,
likely tried steroids as a
method to get ahead because
steroids were not illegal in
baseball prior to 2003.
Athletes would turn to their
trainers for advice on how to
use them because, they would
be the ones in the know.
I spoke with a former
major league player, who told
me that teams would even
hold player meetings on the
"dangers of steroids, but if
you were going to use them
anyway, here is how you
would go about doing it safe-
ly."
Clemens likely just did
what everyone else was
doing, but unfortunately for
him, as a superstar, he is
being singled out.
I think that there is likely
no proof that Clemens used
steroids. He knows that and
therefore he can stand fast in
his denial.
Clemens' attorney states
that McNamee made these
claims to avoid federal prose-
cution himself and now is
looking into a defamation
lawsuit against McNamee.
Clemens and McNamee both
are scheduled to appear
before Congress to answer
questions on the matter.

Pirates clinch county championship


BETH JONES
News-Leader
The county championship trophy didn't leave
Fernandina Beach High School Tuesday night. The
host Pirates defeated West Nassau and then Yulee to
take the title.
"We are definitely excited about this county cham-
pionship," said Mark Durr, FBHS wrestling coach.
"Our guys have been working very hard for this. We
came in every morning at 7 a.m. over the Christmas
break, including a morning practice on New Year's
Day, to make sure we would be ready for this night.
The county championship would be something we
would talk about as we walked in the door at 7 a.m.
and out the door hours later.
"This championship was not handed to our guys.
They earned it. We had a lot of guys, like Mitch Haley,
Ian Muir, Donnie Moore, Jack Williams, Beau Baxter
and Chris Kremler, who got after it early and kept the
pressureon until they.got-the.wi. ...
"We are emulating the attitude of our coach, John
Williams, which is aggressive wrestling until we get
the pin. Not many of our matches go three periods.
We have a lot of work to get done between now and
districts. We have to put the trophy on the shelf as we
strap it up and get on the bus for our weekend tour-
nament at Flagler."
The night started with Yulee and West Nassau
facing off on the mat. The YHS Hornets prevailed 54-
24.
There was a double-forfeit at 103 pounds and, in
the first varsity match, Yulee's James Blocker (112
pounds) pinned Hunter Young in 24 seconds. George
Shepard (119) won the first of two matches, pinning
West Nassau's Taylor Meide in 3:11. At 125, Hornet
Mike Didion pinned Nick Scott in 27 seconds.
In the 130-pound match, West Nassau's Andrew
Elder pinned Damon Dennis in 3:11 and teammate
Terrell Walker also picked up awin for the Warriors,
pinning Roy Davis in 2:59 in the 135-pound class.
Yulee's Josh Dennis (140) pinned Wes Padgett in
1:34 before West Nassau picked up another win. Kyle
Mulder pinned Chase Gonzales in 28 seconds at 145
pounds.
Neil Hughes, Yulee's 152-pound wrestler, pinned
Garrett Wright in 3:21. Jeff Howell, 160 for Yulee,
pinned Blake Martin in 1:15. Hornet Chris Martinez
(171) pinned Elijah Smith in 1:29. At 189 pounds,
Yulee's Tim Mabe defeated Johnathan Wainwright by
pin in 3:29.
West Nassau came up a winner in the 215-pound
class when Kevin Crews pinned Rob Griffis in 26 sec-
onds. Yulee forfeited the heavyweight class.
"We seem to be constantly jockeying our lineup
around to fill some gaps, but hopefully we'll have all
the holes plugged by districts," YHS Coach Michael
Carty said. "We are getting closer to where we want
to be as a program. I had a three-year plan for our pro-
gram in mind when I took this start-from-scratch
coaching position, and we are right on track. If we
meet our goals for the postseason, we'll be ahead of
schedule."

Tuesday's 29-22 win over host
Bishop Snyder pushed the Lady
Pirates' record to 11-4.
"Offense was not there and we
played a little out of sync, but a
win is a win, and every road win is
extremely valuable in January,"
said Mike Landtroop, Fernandina
Beach High School girls basket-
ball coach.
FBHS took an early lead in the
first quarter and never relin-
quished it.
"Bishop Snyder is a good team
and the girls kept playing tough
defense throughout the entire
game and never let up," Landtroop


said. 'The girls' defensive tenacity
kept Bishop Snyder from ever
making a solid run at us."
India Johnson led the way with
13 points and Haley Tan was in
double figures with 10. Johnson
also had nine rebounds and six
steals. Ebony Peterson also had
six rebounds.

match of the night, Yulee's Blocker
pinned Baxter in 1:16 in the 112-
pound class.
"One hard-to-miss observation


from our match with Fernandina
was the difference in strength,"
Catty said. "Strength not only gives
you the tools to execute moves
effectively, but it also covers up a
lot of mistakes. Fernandina obvi-
ously is more dedicated with their
strength training than we are at
this point.
"I've often told our kids that if
you get beat on technique and ath-
leticism, that's one thing, but
shame on you if you get beat on
strength, because any idiot can
get in the gym and get stronger.
Hopefully (Tuesday) will serve as
the motivational reminder they
need to get in the weightroom on
a regular basis."

tournament at Flagler today and
Saturday the Hornets will be at
home Saturday to host the Hornet

Targeting kingfish at TW reef

good bet for anglers this weekend


he weather forecast for this weekend
I includes cooler air temperatures and a 40
percent chance of rain. Winds will also
determine if blue water fishermen will opt
to make that long run to Northeast Florida's
Continental Shelf. However, recent runs to the big
ledge have produced minimum action for both
wahoo and dolphin.
Kingfishing would be a better choice at TW reef,
where mackerel weighing to 25 pounds have been
taken while slow trolling dead cigar minnows.
Bottom fishing at FC reef is still producing a few
gag grouper, sea bass and red snapper.
The St. Marys jetty rocks should offer excellent
sheepshead fishing during the late afternoon falling
tide. Fish up close to the low areas in the jetty
rocks with barnacles or fiddler crabs. Low tide
arrives at the St. Marys inlet at 4:15 p.m.
Black drum and redfish should be biting at the
tip of the St. Marys south jetty rocks during the
morning incoming tide. Fish up close to the sub-
merged jetty rocks and on the ocean side with
fresh dead shrimp.
Sea trout are running in Egans Creek and just
south of the fishy creek along the rock- and piling-
strewn shoreline. Fish the incoming tide with live
shrimp under a popping cork. Slow trolling a 1/4-
ounce led head jig rigged with a chartreuse curly
plastic tail is also very productive in Egans Creek
during the winter fishing season.

T he dream of a waterborne
superhighway that would
unite the nation and move
its commerce dates back to
the Founding Fathers.
Like many outsize dreams, realiz-
ing it took decades of determination,
engineering feats, financial wiz-
ardry, and lobbying. The Atlantic
Intracoastal Waterway now stretch-

its purpose of protected passage for

In this first comprehensive look
at the construction of the Florida
portion of the AIW, William G.
Crawford Jr. traces the roots of the
waterway back to the Founding
Fathers, through the history of the
Canal Era arid its difficult path in
Congress and in Florida's young leg-
islature as one of the early private-
public partnerships, drawing upon
early records and land deeds, and
tracking the history of the men who
made it a reality.

state of Florida. In this volume,


readers meet the Founders during
their quarrels over the proper role
of government in commerce, intrep-
id St. Augustine investors in the
Florida waterway whose vision
exceeded their pocketbooks, and
New England capitalists who made
their marks leading many of the
nation's major enterprises of the era.
By the time the waterway was
completed in the 1930s, it was obso-

because railroads and highways car-

An oasis on a


Colorado mesa

ROBERT M. WEINTRAUB
For the News-Leader
HOTCHKISS, Colo. -The drive from Las Vegas to this
mountain town near the entrance to the Black Canyon of the
Gunnison takes one through the high desert and rocky
canyons of Utah and southwestern Colorado. It can be a
very dry and dusty trip. A traveler is left with a world-class
thirst. But atop Redlands Mesa just west of Hotchkiss is a
lush oasis that can quench the most demanding thirst.
It is the Jack Rabbit Hill winery, one of the thousands of
small vintners that have sprung up almost overnight in
some of the most unlikely places across America. As I've
written before, it is these small, family-run wineries that
hold the future of American wine-
making.
Jack Rabbit Hill is an estate win-
ery that makes premium varietal
wines from 22 acres of certified- l
organic vineyards first planted in
2000. The French concept of terroir -
where a wine's character has
more to do with the soil on which the vines are grown than
anything else is very real on Redlands Mesa, a broad, flat
rocky expanse with barely enough soil above the basalt to
support a few cottonwood trees and cattle pasture land.
The Hanson family has used organic and biodynamic
farming practices to create a very special soil base for their
vines. They annually produce and spread about 150 tons of
compost at a rate of 10 tons/acre (60 percent dairy manure,
30 percent apple pressings, 10 percent wood chips) .They
developed powerful soils using a set of nine herb and com-
post teas biodynamic preparations to break down the
compost.
(In the 1920s Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian scientist and
philosopher, developed the principles of biodynamic farm-
ing that becameithe precursor to organic farming. In biody-
namic farming the soil continues to be a living entity in con-
trast to "dead" soils in which the nutrients are chemical
fertilizer and the dirt grains are laced with pesticides and
fungicides.)
There are four blocks of vines at Jack Rabbit Hill, with
each block surrounded by protected wildlife habitat and/or
pasture. Sheep graze through the rows of vines to keep
weeds under control and add a steady source of manure.
Chickens roam-freely, feasting on insects.
.An assortment of red and white varieties that perform
well in this setting have been planted: pinot noir, pinot meu-
nier, chardonnay, riesling, foch, vignoles and cabernet franc.
My favortgiste.r.~g ling, created in the Alsatian style, off-
dry, but not sweet, a delicate bouquet of exotic flowers, a
soft fruit flavor (a contrast with the heavy fruit-forward style
of California rieslings) and a lingering citrus finish. I
enjoyed it both as an aperitif and with a seafood stew. There
was also a different feel of the wine on the palate, an earthi-
ness not.usually found in riesling, undoubtedly the terroir of
the biodynamic soil.
The riesling is named "Lone Eagle" in honor of the lone
bald eagle that roosts in a 100-foot cottonwood tree on Jack
Rabbit Hill. Riesling is a cold-weather grape and it can get
quite cold here in the early autumn when snow is not a sur-
prise in September. Yet the summers can be blistering hot
on the mile-high mesa.
M&N is another interesting wine worthy of note, espe-
cially by pinot noir lovers. Pinot noir is a difficult grape to
grow and, as with riesling, prefers cold climates (why the
best pinots come from west-central France and New
Zealand). Yield has to be carefully controlled; the objective

Tells its own version of the
Mountain Meadows Massacre,
when a group of Mormons
slaughtered a wagon train of
about 120 settlers passing
through Utah on Sept. 11, 1857
(a date that much is made of). Is
the movie anti-Mormon or an alle-

Take your choice; it's a nasty
business. The Mormons don't
deserve it, and neither do we.

shot, and then killing a villain by
penetrating his brain with a'raw -%*1
carrot.' Clive Owen, Paul Giamatti
and Monica Bellucci co-star in a
WAY-over-the-top violent action
thriller, redeemed by style and
satirical exaggeration, but still too
extreme for all but hard-boiled
action fans. You have been
warned. Deserves an R-plus rat-

he's doing. Rating: ***K

WINE Continued from 1B
is a quality wine, not large quan-
tity. The Hansons blend 45 per-
cent pinot meunier and 55 per-
cent pinot noir for their M&N,
which has a mild, kirsch-like
quality with a black fruit aroma.
Pinot meunier is a secondary
grape grown in Burgundy and
often blended with pinot noir in
the French province to create
some of the best Burgundy,
wines. It is also a cold-weather
grape and flourishes in
Colorado climate.
Jack Rabbit Hill's M&N adds
body (and that earthiness) to
traditional pinot noir. As a result,
it is fine with heavier meats like
roasts and steaks for which a
pure pinot noir is usually too
light to handle.
Because Jack Rabbit Hill
seeks to create quality wines -


and doesn't have to worry about
volume to meet shareholder
profit expectations it often
sells out its stock. Most 2005
and short-processed 2006 vin-
tages are gone, but longer fer-
mented 2006 and the 2007 wines
should be ready for sale soon.
Rieslings put down in October
should be ready by mid-sum-
mer. Other varieties have differ-
ent maturation dates.
Jack Rabbit Hill does ship to
Florida. You can find them on
the Internet at www.jackrab
bithill.com/wine or e-mail
them at lastditch@jackrabbithill.
com or write them at P.O. Box
