County drug records missing
%;FSfStCS H %x


SIAN PERRY
News Leader
More than three years of fed-
erally mandated drug control
records are missing from Nassau
County Animal Control, a review
of the facility has found.
The matter is under investiga-
tion, County Coordinator Ed
Sealover said Friday.
"Nobody seems to, be able to
find the books-" he saidof county
staff. 'They have not been able
to unearth them."
The Nassau Humane Society
discovered the records were miss-
ing after Sealover asked it to
review county shelter operations
following Brenda Rothwell's
removal as director of the facility
over allegations of gross mis-


management.
The review con-
cluded Jan. 22.
An audit by
the Clerk of
.Court's Office
was conducted
about the same
P';" time and its find-
Rothwell ings should be
finalized within
the next week.
Sealover said Rothwell who
remains as head of county Code
Enforcement has been on sick
leave for the last two weeks. "I
have not been able to talk to
Brenda about that," he said.
Rothwell's last day at the shel-
ter was Oct. 31. She served as
director for three years. Drug
inventory and euthanasia records


prior to Oct. 1 are missing, accord-
ing to the Humane Society report.
Drug disbursement records the
amounts and types of substances
administered to animals appear
intact. But it is not possible to
compare inventory and disburse-
ment records since the former
are missing.
Such records are overseen by
the federal Drug Enforcement
Agency, partly because narcotics
Ised f'lor aninils can nimkc their
way onto the street for illegal use
by people. A,,,,'iI. i1. ,I, is the so-
called date rape drug. Special K,

A1A traffic poses serious risk'


MICHAEL PARNELL
News Leader
A local homeowners' group
has asked the state to force
Nassau County government "to
stop its illegal actions that are cre-
ating a serious risk" for motorists
on A1A.
In a Jan. 24 letter tp Gov.
Charlie Crist, Robert Weintraub of
the East Nassau Homeowners'
Council said county officials are
"ignoring state and county laws


that regulate the amount of traffic
on SR 200 (Florida A1A).... The
Florida Highway Patrol reports
that traffic crashes on SR 200 on
the approach to Amelia Island
have increased by 43 percent flom
2002; to 2006. We had a fatality
earlier this week. The situation
will only get worse unless Nassau
County is required to obey the
law."
Weintraub elaborates in letters
dated Jan. 24 to Thomas Pelham,
secretary of the state Department


of Community Affairs, and Dec. 13
to James Bennett of the Florida
Department of Transportation.
"Nassau County is knowingly
violating both state and county
l.1. ,.' I IIn g I .1'!1t. on a m ajor

Weintraub wrote Pelham.

1 Leeper will,



1 Leeper won't



seek election


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Forced to choose, Fernandina
Beach Mayor Bill Leeper will keep
his day job and not seek reelection
this spring. His brother, on the
other hand, City Fire Chief Danny.
deeper, said he will resign in order
to seek election as a Nassau County
commissioner.
Bill leper, 54, said Tuesday a
recent legal opinion would force
him to retire from the Florida
Highway Patrol and lose salary and
certain retirement benefits if he
sought election.
"I like being on the commission
and I have been honored to serve,"
the mayor said, but he couldn't
afford to lose "close to half a million
dollars for a $12,000 a year job."
Danny Leeper, 50, said a recent
legal opinion would force him to
give up his job if he runs.,
"I've made the commitment to
run for county commission; and my
intent is to move forward," the fire
chief said, even though the deci-
sion "puts my livelihood at risk."
Bill Lceper, two-term mayor who
was elected in 2005, said he would
announce his decision to the city
commission Tuesday night. Earlier
in the day, he said he was disap-
pointed with the legal ruling.
'Three years ago it was OK, but
now it's not. . That's their new
interpretation," he said of attorneys
for the state Department of
Management Services.


Danny Leeper


Leeper acknowledged city gov-
ernment has not always been
rewarding. "It has been frustrating,
no doubt about it, more than it
should be," he said, pointing specif-
ically to a still unresolved airport
lawsuit, the uncompleted city mari-
na renovation and more. But he
also pointed to successes during
his term.
Property tax rates have been
kept to the rollback rate while city
services were retained. In fact, new
services have been added, includ-
ing a skate park and improvements
at the recreation center on Elm
Street, and soon a water slide, dog
park and new teen center at the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center,
among others.
But personal considerations
were paramount in his decision,
Leeper said.
"I like what I'm doing," he said
of his job as a highway patrol
spokesman, and isn't willing to give
it up yet. Critically, he joined the

MICI AEL PARNELL
News Leader
"A lack of communication and

Manager Michael Czymbor and
Fire Chief Danny Leeper has dam-
abed the morale of firefighters and
other city employees, an informal
inquiry has found.
Czymbor and Leeper should
meet with the city attorney or
another "facilitator or mediator to
open the lines of communication
and repair their working relation-
ship," City Attorney Tammi Bach
and city Human Resources
Director Robin Marley wrote in a
memo to the city manager Jan'. 18.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
The Community Development
Block Grant Citizens Task Force
was looking forward to federal grant
money for infrastructure improve-
ments such as sidewalks and resur-
facing for the neighborhood bor-
dered by Beech and Lime and
Eighth and 14th streets.
The grant being pursued by the
task force is for $700,000.
But the committee found out last
month that the money most likely
will be spent on improvements to an
inefficient storm drain system.

LEEPER Continued from 1A
state Deferred Retirement Option
Program last year, which pays
salary plus accrued retirement pay
for five years in exchange for a
fixed date of retirement. He would
lose those financial benefits were
he to retire this year.
Danny Leeper, who has been
fire chief for eight years, stands
to lose a considerable income if
he becomes a county commis-
sioner. But he would be eligible
for retirement benefits as a 26-year
city employee, and county com-
missioners make more than three
times the pay of a city commis-
sioner.
"I'm at a point in my life where
I'm ready for a new challenge," he
said.
Leeper received an opinion
from the Florida Department of
State that concludes he is "an offi-
cer" under the state's resign-to-
run law, by inexplicable contrast,
a police chief is considered a "sub-
ordinate" officer and would be

'That being said, we believe
that the complaints are indicative
of a larger problem there is evi-
dence of serious morale issues,
and a lack of trust between
employees and management of
the fire department," they wrote.
Czymbor's clash with Danny
Leeper is notable for several rea-
sons:
Mayor Bill Leeper, one of
Czymbor's bosses, is the fire
chief's brother. Bill Leeper has
been a persistent critic of
Czymbor's management abilities.
The conflict has a political
element the city manager sought
a legal opinion to require Danny
Leeper to resign as fire chief
because he is a candidate this year
for a seat on the Nassau County
Commission.
It involves top city manage-
ment personnel decisions the
city manager previously overruled
Danny Leeper's personnel evalu-
ation of an assistant fire chief, for
example.
Bach and Marley's memo deals
with none of those particular
issues, but with fire department
complaints that date back to
August.
A firefighter/paramedic filed
a complaint Aug. 3 with Czymbor
complaining about the working
environment, health and safety
and lack of training in the fire
department. Three days 14ter
another firefighter/paramedic
filed a complaint about harass-
ment-and-;"anunfairjperforriarn ;
evaluation." ,'o'i, :c
On Nov. 9, the fire chief filed
a formal complaint alleging a hos-
tile work environment was creat-
ed by the first firefighter/para-
medic.
- Bach and Marley subsequent-
ly interviewed Leeper and the
department's 25 employees. They
found no evidence to substantiate
the first firefighter's charges. They
did concur with some of his alle-

allowed to keep his job and seek
such election.
The distinction for Danny
Leeper, who would resign effec-
tive upon his election, is that he
could lose his job even if he fails to
win. City Manager Michael
Czymbor has what has been
termed a "personality conflict" with
Leeper and actually first sought
the legal opinion in an apparent
effort to be rid of his fire chief.
The city election is April 8. Vice
Mayor Joe Gerrity has also
announced he won't seek reelec-
tion, so both his and Ieeper's seat
are open. Eric Childers has
announced for Bill Leeper's seat,
while Susan Steger has said she
will seek Gerrity's seat.
The county commission elec-
tion is set for November, with a
Republican primary election in
August. Danny Leeper is seeking
the seat now held by Commission-
er Jim B. Higginbotham. That is
one of three commission seats to
be decided this year.

gations in part.
Specifically, they found "it
appears that Chief Leeper did
make a threatening statement in
the presence of several fire depart-
ment employees (that was) inap-
propriate and unprofessional"
when he accused the complain-
ing firefighter of being a "mole" in
his department.
Apparently there were suspi-
cions that the complaining fire-
fighter was making health, safety
and training complaints to the
state. He denied doing so.
The second complaint con-
cerned both workplace and sexu-
al harassment. The inquiry found
no illegal behavior, but Leeper
counseled a senior officer regard-
ing inappropriate conduct.
Leeper's complaint alleged the
first employee was "disgruntled"
and there was a fear of physical
violence in the workplace. The
complaint also alleged the employ-
ee "circumvented the chain of
command" by taking his complaint
directly to the city manager.
The inquiry found the employ-
ee did circumvent the chain of
command, but a majority of fire
department personnel did not
believe he could be physically vio-
lent.
The conclusion was that no dis-
ciplinary action was warranted by
the various complaints, but that
training, counseling and coaching
should be utilized to solve the
department's problems.

zation sets the tone of tolerance for

DRUGS Continued from 1A
Rhett Holden-Dodge took over as
interim shelter director, appear.in
order and that strides are being
made to computerize and stream-
line the record-keeping proceAs.
Rothwell came under fire last
summer for sloppy record-keeping
and finally was ordered last August
by then interim county coordinator
Ted Selby to re-figure the shelter's
euthanasia logs, which did not make
sense.
For example, a public records
request by the News-Leader showed
that for fiscal year 2005-6, 2,475 ani-
mals were accepted into the shelter
but 3,163 were euthanized. That
was 1,245 more animals than were
taken in, counting 557 adopted.
Rothwell also ran into problems
with records when she was with
code enforcement for the city of
Fernandina Beach.
In 1997 she was arraigned on a
misdemeanor charge following an
investigation by the Assistant State
Attorney's Office into irregularities
surrounding a public records
request.
Rothwell was never prosecuted
but was suspended pending an

more than 110 percent of its capac-
ity, no traffic can be added to it,
Weintraub said.
But state and county data show
A1A is 117 to 133 percent of its
capacity, and yet the county con-
tinues to approve new commercial
or residential developments, he
wrote. It does so based on what
Weintraub maintains is a flawed
interpretation of the county ordi-
nance on planned unit develop-
ments.
County Attorney David Hallman
has told commissioners the county
is legally correct to interpret its con-
currency laws to allow projects
approved before 1999 to continue.
That interpretation prompted
commissioners to consider approval
of a new shopping center at the
entrance to Marsh Lakes, where
Weintraub lives. The Marsh Lakes
shopping center has been held up
temporarily by a county decision to
ask the state if endangered nesting
woodstorks there would be harmed
by the development.
But "the Marsh Lakes case is
the tip of the proverbial iceberg,"
Weintraub wrote Bennett. He cited
four other major projects declared
exempt from the concurrency rules
- the proposed Nassau Center com-


investigation by an independent fact-
finder appointed by the city.
According to reports, Rothwell
said she took home a file pertaining
to a property lease that was part of
a public records request, but when
a city worker showed up to retrieve
it, she did not have it.
In fact, the file'was locked in
Rothwell's drawer at work, accord-
ing to the investigator, and only one
file was produced for the public
records request when there were
five.
Rothwell reportedly told the
investigator she had taken pre-
scription pain medication for her
'back and "the fact that she was in
pain and medicated may have
impacted on her understanding of
the situation, her judgment and her
subsequent reaction and state-
ments."
Memos were also destroyed or
missing in the case, which resulted
in the civil charge. Two other city
employees also faced charges in
the case.
However, the independent inves-
tigator found there was not "any
serious wrongdoing. Rather, there
were instances of very poor judg-
ment."

County roads and traffic in is

"(Among) them they would add
some 30,000 trips per day to SR 200,
which is more than twice the
amount of capacity that would be
added by the six-laning" of the high-
way, Weintraub wrote. FDOT has a
long-range plan to purchase right-of-
way and build two additional lanes
on A1A, but funding has not been
committed to the project.
The county's Concurrency
Management Ordinance was adopt-
ed Jan. 25, 1999, and revised Oct. 10
that year. It was intended to limit.
development on A1A to those proj-
ects that could provide for the addi-
tional traffic they would generate.


DRAINS Continued from 1A
Ed Crews, project manager and
city engineer, told the task force at
a Jan. 16 meeting that it would cost
$871,000 to replace a pipe that
extends from Fir Street to the high
school, and discharges water to
Egans Creek. Crews says the pipe
was discovered when he and
streets superintendent Rex Lester
were inspecting the storm drain
system and found the pipe needed
to be enlarged.
Crews suggested to the com-
mittee an alternative rain tank sys-
tem that he said would be just as
efficient but would require fewer
engineering studies and be more
affordable. He also noted that the
rain tank system had been used
successfully in Palatka and
Jacksonville, but that engineering
studies would still have to be done.
Some members of the task
force, however, voiced concerns
that the rain tank system was not
a good solution to the storm drain
problem.
'This is a new process that has
been put forward," said committee
member Herman Springs. "... We
have to make sure everything is
proper and in order."
Springs said after the meeting
he had concerns about the alter-
native system because of Fernan-
dina Beach's high water table.
Having been involved in block
grants in Virginia, Springs also
said he understood that writing
grants is a timne-sensitive, compli-
cated process.
'There are too many. unan-
swered questions," he said. "At
this point we're waiting for the city
to come back and give us an eval-
uation on alternative systems."
Crews said after the meeting
the problem with the original proj-
ect was that channeling the water
through the neighborhood to the
main pipe would take an intensive
engineering study and consider-
able expense. With the grant dead-
line looming, Crews said the new
alternative would take less time to
gather the necessary information.
Some members of the task
force were not convinced, howev-
er. Chair Lavinia Williams said she

didn't want to see the committee
choose an alternative just because
of the cheaper price. Springs was
concerned with testing the alter-
native system, and said the nec-
essary tests would delay the
process of completing the grant.
"So many variables come into
play," said Springs. ."I don't gee
how we can write a successful
grant. We're in a very awkward
position.
"We don't want to throw some-
thing on the table just because the
money is there," he added.
Vice Chair Mike Spino urged
the committee to go forward with
the alternative project. "Let's not
say for sure we're not going for-
ward, when we at least have a
chance to try (for the grant)," he
said.
"It ... appears that the proposed
rain tank system would be much
less disruptive to the neighbor-
hoods since we do not have to tear
up streets in order provide
drainage," Spino said later in an
e-mail. 'The proposed solution also
provides a fortunate convergence
of policy and technology Since the
rain tanks can be located on any
street we can choose where we
want to start the projects without
worrying about whether the city's
drainage system is robust enough
to handle it."
City grants administrator
Jennifer Gooding said it was
unlikely there would be enough
time to apply for the grant, because
the alternative system was "all new
information."
Streets chosen for the storm
drainage study are Cedar Street,
South 13th Terrace, Fir Street,
Hickory Terrace and Kelp Street.
The streets were chosen because
they have the greatest need for
new storm drains, said Springs.

State's anti-tax



movement is



here to stay


The residents of Florida have
spoken. Their voices will be heard
as loudly as the space shuttle's
thrust from the launch pad.
It's time for government offi-
cials to listen. They really have
few options anyhow.
The resounding approval of
Amendment 1 the anti-tax ini-
tiative last week sent a harsh
message to local officials eager
to heap more taxes on the citi-
zenry. As part of the amendment,
residents will see their homestead
exemption increase from $25,000
to $50,000 and, over time, their
property taxes decrease.
Businesses and second homes
will also receive minor protection
'from skyrocketing taxes.
"People are sick and tired of
taxes going up," says State Rep.
Aaron Bean, a staunch proponent
of Amendment 1. 'The focus is
living within our means."
Bean calls the anti-tax move-
ment initiated by Gov. Charlie
Crist a "quiet revolution." This
isn't quite a Boston Tea Party, but'
we have had excessive taxation
from our representation. Locally,
one commissioner after another is
elected with tough talk on taxes -
only to become quiet and sub-
missive once elected.
And this is only the beginning:
A state commission assigned to
reform the tax system is meeting
diligently and reviewing existing
policies. The commission is
expected to push for two or three
additional amendments on the
November ballot.
Like Amendment 1, these are
constitutional amendments that


voters must
approve and
that have
long-lasting
.effects. The
64-percent
approval of
Amendment
1 by voters
was decisive
Steve and suffi-
Nicklas client.
Bean says
.." . h he is pushing
STEVE'S for additional
MA ET relief for non-
MAR ET homesteaded
PLACE properties,
which have
absorbed the brunt of tax hikes in
our county and elsewhere. Since
homestead properties are pro-
tected by a cap on assessments,
officials have been placing their
tax guillotines on businesses, sece
ond homes and vacation proper-
ties.
The anti-tax movement is here
to stay. City and county officials
must now prove their mettle in
managing a budget with reduced
inflows of property taxes. In past
years, the biggest question at
budget time was how to spend
the additional tax revenues
brought in by an explosion of
growth and property values
around Florida.
Now the question will be hoey
to make ends meet with limited
financial resources. An unfortet
nate byproduct of the tax cuts will
be inevitable layoffs and redu6
tion in services. But the threats ef
reduced levels of public safety are
unfounded, since police and fire
protection will be the last to suffer.
Local governments are
-accountable to the people. They
should responsibly manage and
spend tax dollars and not wast4
them. Too many times it appeared
local officials would find ways and
places to spend tax revenues,
rather than return them to their
rightful owners.
We, the citizens.

'Life lessons that will make you uncomfortable


Another year is well under way
and by now your "resolutions" have
worn off. That means that in your
work life and your life life (and hope-
fully, they're healthily integrated).
you've reverted to your "default"
habits. But how well are these tired
old habits actually serving you?
According to Mike Staver, many
of us unconsciously and repetitive-
ly make choices in our interactions
with others that keep us stuck in a
well-worn rut of mediocrity and
that rut keeps us from'living up to
our full potential.
"Personal growth is the key to
success in business, in relation-
ships, really, in all aspects of life,"
says Staver, a Fernandina Beach
coach and professional speaker and
author of the new book Do You
Know How to Shut Up? And 51
Other Life Lessons that Will Make
You Uncomfortable (Mac Daddy
Publishing, $14.95).
"Unfortunately, most of us get
comfortable in mediocre jobs, lack-
luster marriages or spiritual iner-
tia and that's where we stay. I want
people to know that true happiness
is achievable and closer than they
may realize. But they're going to
have to work for it. Growth isn't
easy but it is well worth the effort."
Staver, who is known for his
edgy, "tough-love" coaching style,
says our drive to avoid discomfort
that uneasy feeling that comes
with confrontation and change, for
instance often consigns us to dull-
as-dishwater lives. He insists that
anyone can find success by asking
themselves a few tough questions
rejecting the cliches and canned
solutions we too often hear. Once
the bologna is out of the way, the
path to success, clear communica-
tion and spiritual evolution (growth)
is clear as day.
Staver offers nine not-always-
easy-but-worth-it tips that will help


you break out of
your rut and start
finally living the
life you really want
to live:
Shut up al-
ready! Have you
ever been in a con-
Staver versation with a
person who has
already made his
point but just won't let it go? Worse
yet, are you that person? The truth
is, some people love to hear the
sound of their own voices, while
others may simply chatter on out of
nervousness or simply because
they are uncomfortable with
silence. Learning how to shut up
once in a while is a valuable skill not
only in business but in all areas of
life.
Change is not the enemy. Stop
dilly-dallying and make the leap. Is
there something you've been just-
dying to do, but haven't? Maybe
you want to change careers or rein-
vent your company or get married
(or even divorced.) Trufh\\be
known, there are a million excuses
to avoid taking a big leap. But what
it all boils down to is this: you
assume that something "bad" is
going to happen when you make a
change and your fear over that (the-
oretical) outcome keeps you stuck
in the unfulfilling present. Until you
change your beliefs, about, well,
change, you'll never live your
dream.
Take regular "stillness" breaks
or you will never really get any-
where. People equate business suc-
cess with non-stop action and one
accomplishment after another, but
if you take no time to.reflect on your
most important goals you will be
counterproductive and risk burnout.
Staver says learning to be still is an
important party of productivity.
Schedule 30-minute "stillness


breaks" at least once a week to lis-
ten to what your subconscious is
saying to you.
Stop giving jerks the time of
day. Everyone has to deal with peo-
ple who are, well, let's say chal-
lenging. They are obnoxious ener-
gy drainers who can just plain tick
you off. Unfortunately, difficult peo-
ple are just a part of life unless you
choose to become a hermit. The
secret in handling rude, oblivious or
obnoxious people is to avoid invest-
ing too much energy in arguing
with or changing their behavior.
Start using blunt, to the point phras-
es like "Please stop interrupting me
and let me finish" or "Don't speak to
me that way."
Learn to anticipate the not-so-
obvious consequences. People
spend a lot of time worrying about
the intended results of their deci-
sions. But how much time do you
devote to thinkingabout the unin-
tended consequences they bring
about? Not nearly enough, says
Staver. All the time you spend ago-
nizing over whether you can suc-
ceed in that new job across the
country may prove to be pointless.
You may well look back and realize
that what you should have consid-
ered is how well your spouse and
your marriage -would adjust to the
move.
Stop being so darn honest!
Has anyone ever said something to
you under the guise of being "hon-
est" that upset you, made you mad
or hurt your feelings? Some people
use honesty as a weapon. If you do
this, stop. Just because something
is true or more accurately,
because you think it is true does-
n't mean it needs to be spoken. "I'm
not saying that I think lying is
acceptable. But many hurtful com-
ments could be avoided if people
just kept their mouths shut at times
when honestly isn't called for."

Break out of the prison of too
much independence. We live in a
country that celebrates freedom.
Companies value employees who
take initiative and work independ-
ently and we are proud (if scared)
when our children demonstrate
independence and responsibility.
Still, too much independence is just
as bad as excessive dependence. If
you pride yourself on being a rock
of self-sufficiency at work, for
instance, other people won't feel
needed or important and you'll
lose out on their valuable contribu-
tions.
Take a refresher course on
"the birds and the bees" of com-
munication. It's true: Men and
women communicate in funda-
mentally different ways.


Understanding those differences is
the key to better personal and pro-
fessional relationships with the
opposite sex. In general, women
are motivated by the need to be
respected and heard while men are
motivated by conquest and compe-
tition. This results in very different
communication styles that can eas-
ily be misinterpreted. Learn to deci-
pher them."
Stop channeling the
"Cowardly Lion." OK, let's say
you're making progress on your
goals when one day fear slaps you
in the face like a bucket of ice water.
Don't let it freeze you in your tracks,
says Staver. Remember, anxiety and
fear are always the results of mak-
ing a catastrophic prediction about
the future. '

.The biggest reason to persevere
in your quest for your dreams -
however uncomfortable the process
may be at times is because not
doing so is a sure pathway to a life
filled with regrets.
"Dreams add richness and color
to your days," Staver says. "In fact,
a life not fueled by dreams is bare-
ly a life at all. Don't come to the end
of your life without every last drop
of possibility drained from your
tanks-I can't think of anything sad-
der."

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2008/NEWS-LEADER


VIEWPOINT/DoN JONES/FERNANDINA BEACH



It's time to deal with cri


I just laid my hands on an old
News-Leader article regard-
ing crime and gangs. I have
followed issues of crime
with some interest for years, hav-
ing lived in Portsmouth, Va.,
until 1969. I then lived in our
national crime capital, Washing-
ton, D.C., for 34 years. I have fol-
lowed the discussion of crime in
the local newspapers with some,
concern or maybe amusement.
I think Florida should change its
name from the "Sunshine State"
to the "Windbag State."
Much of the violent crime we
are experiencing around the area
is undoubtedly gang based and
much of it is drug based. The
killings we have experienced
have not brought forth any solu-
tions at all, except to continue to
overload Florida's prisons at
huge public expense. So far,
nothing that has been done or
proposed would seem worth a
tinker's damn. Obviously tough
effective measures are verboten.
Presumably the law enforcement
authorities and politicos don't
want to hurt anybody's feelings.


It seems to me Florida needs
to do something unmistakable
about violent crime and criminal
gangs. I would propose the fol-
lowing:
1. Future criminals need to be
identified as early as possible.
The schools and public need to
participate in this.
2. Criminal gangs need to be
identified as to their purposes
and official memberships. Gang
members should be certified by
the courts based on intelligence
information, gang tattoos and
markings and membership lists.
Each gang should be certified as
a criminal enterprise and the
crimes committed by the gang
should be documented to the sat-
isfaction of the chief judge and
the prosecutor.
3. Once these gangs are certi-
fied, membership in these gangs
should be declared to be a felony
punishable by five years in
prison. Any gang member caught
with a firearm would receive an
additional five years in prison,
without parole.
4. When a certified gang

member commits a capital mur-
der, is arrested, is convicted and
gets the death penalty, the entire
gang would receive the death
penalty. Limiting punishments to
shooters alone accomplishes
nothing. The gang just goes on
killing people. Members of
gangs take oaths to do what they
are told to do by the gang.
Members who disobey usually
end up dead. Obviously, when
gang members kill people it is of,
by, for the gang. Culpability thus
undoubtedly extends to the
entire gang. If two or three mem-
bers of a 50-person gang commit
a murder for the gang, the other
47 or 48 should get the death
penalty.
5. People who use illegal
drugs but don't sell them should
be sentenced to community
service. People who import
drugs into Florida illegally
should receive the death penalty.
People who manufacture synthet-
ic narcotics should also receive
the death penalty. People who
sell drugs while armed with
firearms should receive the
death penalty.

it be nice if we could just wrap

Next best thing is putting pen
to paper and expressing that
embrace so that the moment is
not lost. What a pleasant sur-

"Jen, it was so great talking
to you after church on Sunday.
You are such a breath of fresh

was all it
said.

rare treasure.
Her written expression
affected me to my core. It was
then that I realized how impor-
tant even the smallest of action
can be.
I decided to take Pam's act
of kindness and pass it for-
ward. Using her example as
my Lenten discipline, for the
next 40 days I chose to write a
note of gratitude to anyone

Taking the time to notice

out to them in the smallest of
ways.
It brought to mind special
moments in time that other-
wise might have been forgot-
ten. Warming my heart to so
many pleasant encounters that
we so often take for granted.
The awareness of His presence
shown to me by others
through their actions or words.
My eyes became opened to
the blessings that God con-
stantly flows in and out of our
lives. Moments some would
call coincidences, I label God's
little whispers of love.
Focusing on the gift others
give and putting it down in
writing truly allowed me to
appreciate the little things. It
was an amazing transformation
.of heart. Looking at others
from a place of gratitude made
me conscious and more delib-
erate of my own actions.

blessed.
Each day breathes life and
opportunity to give love, to
show someone you care, to
reach out. Simply giving a
smile, a hug, speaking a few
kind words, or maybe really lis-
tening to someone in need.
These are little miracles wait-
ing to be given and received,
ready to be set in motion.
Moments that connect us to
another soul. They heal us,
encourage us, sometimes even
save us.

Holiday thanks
On behalf of the Nassau County Volunteer
Center, Barnabas Center, Head Start programs
(Callahan and Peck locations), Family Support
Services, Sutton Place, Nassau County Health
Department (Healthy Families), Boys &,Girls Club
(Fernandina location),Toys for Tots, Nassau County
Council on Aging and Northeast Florida Community
Action Agency, I want to thank the 2,668 volunteers
who gave their time, talent and resources to make
sure that our needy neighbors in Nassau County had
a great holiday season.
This was the 18th year of the Volunteer Center's
holiday program and far surpassed our expecta-.
tions. More than 300 families for a total of 860 recip-
ients were helped by donors. Of those people
served, 550 were children and 80 elderly families,
who were either adopted by donors, received gifts
from Wal-Mart Angel Tree, school, youth and
church groups or attended parties given for them.
Thousands of pounds of food collected was dis-
tributed to elderly and families with children.
The response to our holiday program is an exam-
ple of the kindness of the citizens in our communi-
ty toward their fellow neighbors. These donor vol-
unteers were female and male of all ages, ethnicities
and creeds. Local businesses, civic, church, youth,
government and individuals spent countless hours
and thousands of dollars to help the needy.
Thanks are also due the agencies' staffs and vol-
unteers who each year work long, hard days and
often into the night to help make this program a suc-
cess. And, of course, thanks to the Volunteer
Center's volunteers who shopped for and wrapped
gifts, prepared food baskets and delivered food and
gifts to recipients.
I know I speak for the recipients of this kindness
when I wish all the donors and volunteers and their
families, a healthy and Happy New Year and trust
that the kindness and spirit of giving will remain in
your hearts throughout the year.

VIEWPOINT/RANDY RICE/FERNANDINA]



Promoting'

On Saturday, our firm and the Amelia Island-
Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of
Commerce are hosting an event called "Get
Good Growth: a Forum for a Sustainable
Nassau." The first question out of most people's
mouths is, "Why are you hosting this forum?" Here
is a complicated answer to a simple question.
My wife and I moved to Nassau County in 2001
from Atlanta. They had just crested four million peo-
ple in the metropolitan area. We used to joke that
when they got to four million people they wouldn't
miss us. Today they have five million people, head-
ing to six then to eight and then to however many'
their water supplies will allow them.
In the Jacksonville metro area our population is
less than two million people, about the same number
as Atlanta's population when I moved there around
1980. If you look at a typical suburban county, of
Atlanta, Gwinnett, you will note a parallel with our
county here in how they both are located in similar
proximity to their downtown. What is strikingly dif-
ferent is that while we have a population of 88 people
per square mile, Gwinnet has a population of over
1,200 people per square mile. Based on this informa-
tion, it is likely that Nassau County will see a 10-fold
increase in its population in the next 30 to 60 years.
Needless to say, this will radically change the
complexion of Nassau. The question is, will it
change it for the better or for the worse?
Going back to my Atlanta experiences, I would
like to describe to you who haven't lived there what
it is like. The highways in the suburbs are typically
six lanes each way and 10 lanes each way through.
downtown. On a typical summer day the air has a
yellow haze, and people with asthma are warned to
stay inside. To navigate the city, people leave for
work as early as 5 a.m. to avoid traffic.,To see any-
one you know other than an immediate neighbor, it


Well-rounded education
As a graduate of the Kentucky public school system,
I can offer very little regarding the curriculum of the
Nassau County public schools. However, having grad-
uated within the past eight years or so, I feel as though
I can offer some relevant insight from my own expe-
rience to Nassau County Schools Superintendent John
Ruis. I could not agree more with his statement, "If
you're going to teach evolution, teach it all" ("School
board: Evolution is not a fact," Jan. 30).
During my studies, I recall an English class in
which we read the Judeo-Christian creation story in
Genesis as an academic study of the Old Testament as
literature. In history, we learned the origins of civi-
lizations that existed on our continent long before we
did.
The American Iridians had beautiful creation myths,
as did.the Mayans. In humanities, I learned the Greek
creation story in which a bird with black wings exist-
ed as the sole entity in the universe. The bird laid an
egg, which hatched to give birth to Eros, the God of
Love. Half of the shell rose into the air to create the sky,
the other half becoming the Earth. In science class, per-
haps most pertinent to this discussion, we read
excerpts from iar'vin's The Origin ofSpecie. fqp ,,,
'hTiigt h of3ry 6f eolhition to be equally as beautiful and
fascinating.
Mr. Ruis, it is your job to ensure that the students
in the Nassau County public schools get an equally
well-rounded education in regard to every aspect of the
origins of all plants, animals and peoples that have
throughout the history of our Earth collectively con-
tributed to the world in which we live now. If you do
this, there is no need to insult the intelligence of our
youth by assuming that they cannot interpret this
information for themselves to form their own theory.
Benjamin C. Morrison
Fernandina Beach

Ethical science
The action of the Nassau County School Board in
requesting the state Board of Education to revise sci-
ence standards concerning the teaching of evolution
may be wise ("School board: Evolution is not a fact,"
Jan. 30). But without the opportunity to read the pro-
posed state standards, it is difficult to judge if this
action is really an attempt by the county to permit
intelligent design to become part of the science cur-
riculum.
Comment from the school board resolution, as
quoted in the News-Leader, saying that evolution is
not a fact but a theory, brings to mind the well-known
position of those who wish to teach creationism to
children as science.
A scientific theory is an explanation of natural phe-
nomenon that can be shown by evidence to be the best
explanation known at present. Evolution fits that def-
inition. No matter what those opposed to evolution
may say, creationism or intelligent design does not fit
the definition of a' scientific theory.'
If, however, as suggested in the News-Leader, the
proposed state standards proclaim evolution as the
explanation of the origin of life on Earth versus the
explanation of the process by which that life developed,
it is a different issue completely, A science curriculum
that denies the possibility of a creator should indeed
be opposed. An attempt to explain the origin of life as
merely a statistical chance is conjecture and does not
belong in a science class any more than does cre-
ationism.
Any ethical scientist will readily agree that there are
many things in this world that we do not understand.
To convinced Christians (like me) and others with
religious faith, it is God that is responsible for life and
the universe around us. If modern knowledge shows
the Genesis story to be a fable for its time, that does
not invalidate our faith in God. And that faith may well
be taught, along with competing beliefs, in school but
not in the science class.

Teens get a bad rap
This letter is in response to or, I should say, in
rebuttal of the blatant and unfounded bashing of
"all" teenagers ("Moral decay of teenagers," Jan. 30).
The letter writer should take off her blinders and
see the whole picture before she puts everyone of
the same age in a category and then accuses everyone
in that category of being moral degenerates.
I work full-time and am quite active in our wonderful
community (mentoring in school, serving on an advi-
sory board, fundraising, volunteering, etc.) so I, too,
have many occasions to witness teenagers and adults
in a variety of sporting events as well as political and
social functions. Her statements, "Somewhere between
the last generation and mine, the message of nation-
alism has been lost to be replaced with selfishness and
boorish behavior" may be true. In fact, it is I seem


)od growth' here


Growth forum is Saturday
"Get Good Growth a Forum for a Sustainable
Nassau," is scheduled from 8 30 a.m to 4 p m
Saturday al the Hamplon Inn and Surtes in down-
town Fernandina Beach Tickets are $25. The
forum is sponsored by Rice Architect LLC and the

takes on average 45 minutes. The poor parents and
kids who had to carpool around to get to games and
events would spend literally hours in the car just
fighting traffic. If you wonder why you see car adver-
tisements that show SUVs that have interiors like a
small living room, it is because in a city like Atlanta
you literally live in your car for up to four hours a
day.
In spite of the best efforts of the planners of these
communities, the suburban counties were reac-
tionary to the growth that beset them. Road rights of
way were not established. Metropolitan transit plans
were minimal. Land conservation wasn't even a topic
until it was way too late. There was little or no
requirement for efficient use of energy or water,
even if you had a 10,000-square-foot home; 100-year-
old trees in the suburbs were leveled without a
thought and replaced with sprawl and track housing.
Places became unrecognizable, as their site features
had been completely erased.
And this was accepted practice as people were
making money and there seemed to be unlimited
land and recourses, all in the name of freedom. This
year the citizens of Atlanta were instructed in their,
potty etiquette, "If it's brown flush it down, if it's yel-
low let it mellow." So the "freedom" that seemed to


epitomize Atlanta has ended up with city govern-
ment instructing its citizens as to when they can
flush the toilet. The city can no longer sustain the
population it has without thoroughly diminishing the
quality of life of the inhabitants. This doesn't have to
be the case here.
So the reason for the forum Saturday is to give
our community a chance to learn from our neigh-
bors about what they did wrong with their growth,
and what they are now doing right today, so we can
avoid the same mistakes here. But without a
groundswell of local public support with great lead-
ers making hard choices, all pushing in the same
direction for sustainable community, the likelihood
of our county being proactive regarding growth man-
agement is diminished, and we will suffer a loss of
freedom and quality of life as a result.
The ideas behind sustainability give us another
way to look at how to grow that moves away from
complete dependence on cars for transportation.
What if we all needed a car only half as much as we
do today? What if half of what a typical person need-
ed to do was within walking distance? What would
happen if we encouraged some dense areas for peo-
ple and some empty areas for alligators and birds in
our comprehensive plans. What would happen if we
anticipated the day that the tracks that run through
the county would carry, passengers? These simple
notions if implemented would preserve the great
beauty we have here while allowing for an economic
system that would be more time and cost efficient.
I could go on, but if this piques your imagination
come join us. If you would like to donate to this
cause, come to the forum or otherwise comment
please e-mail me at rrice@ricearchitect.com or call
491-0072.

JON D WC MB M) DAILYTRIBUNE



JOHN DARKOW/COLUMBIA (MO.) DAILY TRIBUNE


to recall that a former president of the United States
engaged in activities(in the White House) which def-
initely exemplified "selfishness" and "boorish behav-
ior" and, please note, he was not a teenager. Theri, to
your specific issues, there's a current presidential can-
didate who didn't see fit to place his hand over his heart
during the playing of our national anthem and, please
note, he is not a teenager. These are only two incidents
out of hundreds involving adults showing disrespect,
not teenagers.
However, I do agree with you in that we should
show respect for and support our great counti-y and
what we, as Americans, stand for. But, please, don't
attack all of our teenagers. They were raised andt
taught by adults the good teenagers (and there are
plenty of them!) had good adult role models; the bad
ones had no role models at all or bad role models.
Children are not born disrespectful this is a learned
characteristic.
I think the writer owes the vast majority of
teenagers in Nassau County an apology.
I am the parent of a 19-year-old who is actively
involved in our community and our church. In his
spare time (after schoolwork), he tutors the "elderly"
in basic computer skills, participates in food collections
for local shelters, has been a People to People Student
Ambassador to England, Greece, Italy and France,
has a 4.0 GPA and is always volunteering to help
with beach cleanup and many other community activ-
ities; and, please note, his "teenage" friends
are equally involved and quite respectfully, too thank
you!

Parkon the river
I am writing this letter to agree with Joan Bean on
the park on the river (Jan. 16).
Not only would all of Nassau County residents
enjoy it, it would be a great place to take our relatives
and visitors who come to town. A beautiful park to sit
and enjoy the river, boats, birds and a wonderful sun-
set what a wonderful place to welcome visitors to our
community.
I know many who love the park idea. These same
people are in favor of the trains bringing logs to the
mills. Our roads are really bad, the traffic is terrible and
many accidents are happening. We could put up with
a few minutes of delay at a crossing if it would help all
this. Have you ever been in the middle of six log
trucks rushing to get to the mill? It is time we did good
things for our community.

Election signage
The Nassau County Supervisor of Elections, Vicki
P. Cannon, indicated to me that the private landown-
ers of (some) Nassau polling precinct locations had not
provided written consent to allow all approved politi-
cal signs to be posted at the ingress and egress to their
property, outside of 100 feet from the polling place. If
some political signage is allowed but not others in the


access to and from the polling place, then this appears
to give the owner of the property unfair access and
influence at the polling place. I am not suggesting
that any unfair access has actually taken place, rather,
by not having approval of the property owner in writ-
ing of this stipulation there is nevertheless opportunity
for this to occur.
This issue should have been resolved by the super-
visor of elections prior to the establishment of the pri-
vate polling places. Ms. Cannon indicated that there
were no available public venues so the private ones
were chosen by necessity. She also indicated that
property owners are required to sign a form stipulat-
ing their agreement to certain provisions relating to the
use of their property as a public polling place, but
there was not a requirement on that form to allow all
political signage.
Ms. Cannon indicated that there is an old legal
opinion in place (referring to superseded legislation)
that required private polling places to allow all sig-
nage. But Ms. Cannon indicated that there was new leg-
islation in 2005 that changed the old law regarding sig-
nage and Nassau County had not requested an opinion
on this. Ms. Cannon indicated however, that she
requested a legal opinion from Tallahassee on this
issue and will revise the form provided to private
polling place property owners if required and in
time for subsequent elections in Nassau.
Again, I have no objection to Nassau County using
private polling venues if no public alternatives exist But
I do object to using private polling places if their prop-
erty owners have not agreed in writing to allow all
approved political signs on their property at the day of
the election that is customary at all public polling
places.
Aside from this one issue, I think Ms. Cannon's
office and all the people who have volunteered their
time and hard work to conduct the election are doing
an excellent job and should be commended.,

Random acts of kindness
You know sometimes with all the strife and prob-
lems out there we take blessings we receive for grant-
ed. This nation, for all its problems, far exceeds any-
where else in the world. Even our "poor" live better
than most of the world's middle class.
Florida and Fernandina is a wonderful place to
call home. Perfect? No, but perfect doesn't exist on
Earth.
My family is especially blessed to live in a neigh-
borhood where an act of ongoing random kindness
occurs a neighbor picks up the newspaper at the curb
and places it next to the front door. Thank you!
'This good neighbor has also on occasion mowed
the lawn for his lucky neighbors.
Doing random acts of kindness strictly anony-
mously is one of the things that makes Americans
great and some of them fantastic by going way beyond
just being good neighbors.
Neighbor, thank you.

Do not apply ice directly to the
burn. Ice can make the burn worse.
The opposite extreme temperature
may also destroy the skin.
Do not apply creams, oint-
ments or salves. These products
retain heat in the damaged tissue.
Do not break any blisters until
seen by a physician.
Cover with a clean, dry cloth.
First- and second-degree
burns smaller than the person's
palm can usually be treated at
home. Keep the area clean to pre-
vent infection by gently washing
with mild antimicrobial soap several
times a day, rinsing thoroughly.
Cover open areas with a clean,
loose dressing. Consult with your
family physician or local burn cen-
ter if the burn does not heal in two
to three days or if signs of infection
appear. Burns larger than the per-
son's palm should be evaluated by
a physician. For larger burns (big-
ger than the person's palm) or
burns that involve the face, airway,
hands, feet or genital area, call 911.
Burn injuries can last a lifetime;
the scars never go away. Injuries
that occur in childhood will carry
through to adulthood, often leaving
the individual scarred beyond phys-
ical pain. Being aware of these dan-
gers can help prevent these serious
injuries from occurring.
For more information on Burn
Awareness Week, visit www.burn
awarenessweek.org
In addition to burn awareness to
prevent injuries to children, Nassau
County Fire Rescue urges resi-
dents to have working smoke
alarms installed on every level of
your home, test them monthly and
keep them clean and equipped with
fresh batteries at all times. Know
when and how to call 911 for help.
And remember to practice your
home escape plan. For further
questions or special needs, call 491-
7525 or toll-free at 1-866-832-1317.


POLICE REPORT


This was written by Shannon
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office, the
city of Fernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.
Arrest indicates suspicion of a
crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information about
criminal activity can contact the
Fernandina Beach Police Depart-
ment at 277-7342 or the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office anony-
mously by calling 225-0147 in
Yulee and Fernandina Beach or
879-2136 in Callahan, Hilliard
and Bryceville. The "We Tip" pro-
gram 1-800-78CRIME also
allows callers to leave anonymous
tips.
Lectern stolen
A lectern was reported stolen
from River of Praise Worship
Center in Yulee Friday.
The complainant was tending
to custodial duties in the church
Friday afternoon when a man
who said he was a pastor asked
for a copy of the preacher's ser-
mon.
' The woman gave him a copy
and he left, according to a Nassau
County Sheriff's Office report;
she said the man was out of her
sight for only "a brief time."
A short time later she noticed
the clear Plexiglas lectern miss-
ing. She then found a door from
the auditorium where the
lectern was located to a back
hallway of the church had a towel
placed in the door jam to prevent
the door from completely closing.
Directly to the left of the door was
a hallway exit to the rear parking
lot.
The woman told police the
towel belonged to the church, and
she said there were several such
towels located in a room adjacent
to where the man' sat while waiting
for a copy of the sermon.
The estimated value of the
lectern is $500, according to the
report.
The theft is under investiga-
tion; no arrests have been made.

Carjacking arrest
A Hilliard man was arrested
last week after another man was
assaulted at a Fernandina Beach
convenience store and his car
stolen.
Mark Wade Tyson, 24, of
10132 Mulberry Landing was
arrested Thursday and faces
charges of aggravated battery,
obstruction of justice and car-
jacking.
According to a report from the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department, the victim, a
Fernandina Beach man, was at
the Flash Foods on South 14th
Street and offered a woman a ride.
When she said no he started to
leave, then Tyson approached the
car and punched the man in the
face, "resulting in a bloody
mouth," according to the report.
The victim reportedly
retrieved a stick from his car
trunk and started chasing Tyson
and Tyson's friend, Robert Lee
Edwards Jr., police said. The
friend pushed the victim to the
ground and Tyson allegedly start-
ed kicking and punching him, the
report states. Edwards reported-
ly took the stick and hit the victim
in the back of the head, resulting
in a small scratch. According to
witnesses, Tyson then drove off in
the victim's car, a 1997 Chevrolet
Cavalier. The vehicle was later
recovered at a South 10th Street
residence.
According to police, Tyson
originally said his name was Jack
Wesley Tyson. Edwards told
police-the victim had been "harass-
ing" Tyson's girlfriend, which
instigated the altercation.
Tyson and Edwards, of 1016
S. Ninth St. in Fernandina Beach,
were both arrested and taken to
the Nassau County Jail.
Tyson was in custody at the
jail on $50,002 bond on Monday
afternoon; Edwards had been
released on bond.

Fire destroys Hilliard home


An early morning fire in Hilliard
destroyed one house and left five
people homeless.
Nassau County Fire Rescue
responded to a single-wide mobile
home fire on Sunday at 3:30 a.m.
Upon arrival, crews observed
flames shooting from every
window and a door opening facing
the street at the home located in
the 371000 block of Henry Smith
Road.
Bystanders said all five occu-
pants evacuated safely to the exte-
rior. Two of the occupants were
treated on-scene for smoke inhala-
tion; they declined transport to the
hospital.
"I woke up when I heard the
smoke alarm sound and I saw fire
in the master bathroom when I got
up," said Bernard Brown. "I went
through the house waking every-


one to get out fast."
Firefighting crews remained on-
scene for more, than three hours
to ensure the fire was out.
"Due to the extent of fire dam-
age in the master bedroom/bath-
room, we determined this to be the
area of origin," said Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper. 'This family is
extremely lucky to have a working
smoke alarm which awakened
them and afforded valuable min-
utes to escape the home without
any injuries."
Early detection of any fire is
important and the early detection of
smoke can make the difference
between life and death. Properly
working smoke alarms are
designed to warn occupants of
smoke and emit a nearly unbear-
able sound that is an indicator of the
presence of smoke. Smoke is


extremely toxic to the human body
and will cause respiratory arrest
within minutes of exposure.
A fire hydrant was used by the
Hilliard Fire Department to supply
Engine 40. Volunteers from Stations
4, 9 and 11 assisted with manpow-
er.
The American Red Cross was
called upon to care for the displaced
family with food and clothing. The
residents will be staying with fam-
ily members.
NCFR fire investigators were
dispatched to determine the origin
and cause of the blaze and have
determined the fire was not inten-
tionally set, but cannot say what
the actual ignition source was due
to the extent of the damage.
Estimates from fire officials were
$20,000 damage to the structure
and contents.


TALLAHASSEE- An employee
of the Department of Children and
Families was taken into custody and
charged with eight counts of using
a child in a sexual performance, a
second-degree felony punishable
by up to 15 years per count.
Investigators determined that at
least two victims between the ages
of 16 and 17 were solicited by Al
.Zimmerman to perform lewd acts,.
which were used by Zimmerman
to create child pornography. The
criminal investigation is ongoing.
Zimmerman was booked into the
Hillsborough County Jail.
Zimmerman was hired by DCF
in March 2005. He most recently
served as a department spokesper-
son. He was terminated immedi-
ately.
"Every photograph, every


image, every lasting impression of
a child's sexual abuse perpetuates
this horrible crime over and over
again," Attorney General Bill
McCollum said. "CyberCrime
knows no boundaries, targets all
demographics and should never fail
to galvanize us into action to protect
our children from these predators."
Department of Children and
Families Secretary Bob
Butterworth said, "The alleged
actions of Mr. Zimmerman are a
betrayal of trust to this department,
its employees and the people we
serve. We know the children and
families of Floridd rely on us to pro-
tect them, and in taking that respon-
sibility, we pledge to keep them
safe.
"I applaud the work of the
Attorney General's CyberCrime

QUESTIONc Is there a
way I as a father can
Influence my daughter's
attitude toward boys? If
she chooses to marry.
she will need to under-
stand men and know
how to relate to them. Is that some-
thing I should be thinking about?
DR.DOBSON:You bet it is. Long
before a girl finds her first real
boyfriend or falls in love, her attitude
toward men has been shaped quietly
by her father.Why? Because the father-
daughter relationship sets the stage
for all future romantic involvements
If a young woman's father rejects
her, she'll spend her life trying to find
a man who can meet the needs he
never fulfilled in her heart. If he's warm
and nurturing, she'll look for a lover to
equal him. If he thinks she's beautiful
and feminine, she'll be inclined to see
herself that way. But, if he rejects her
as unattractive and uninteresting. she's
likely to carry self-Image problems Into
her adult years.
It's also true that a woman's rela-
tionship with her husband is signifi-
cantly influenced by the way she per-
ceived her father's authority. If he was
overbearing or capricious during her
earlier years, she may precipitate
power struggles with her husband
throughout married life But, if Dad

S' was great to travel to
a Philadelphia this holiday
season with my suitcase full
.. of roasted "Amelia Island
Heirloom Pecans" and a small-
town gal's eagerness for a bit of
city life. My Philadelphia-based
brother, his wife and three nearly
fledged daughters planned all
sorts of urban activities designed
to amuse me.
We visited the Philadelphia
Art Museum, an inner-city jazz
club and even New York City to
revisit my old favorite haunt, the
Museum of Natural History. It
was wonderful, all of it, except
for the crowds. There are just too
many people in cities for my taste
any time of the year, and around
the holidays it's even worse. It
seems like everyone wanted to
visit the very same places we did.
In museums, I spent more of my
time lurking in the edges of
obscure exhibits than I did view-
ing the special ones. Crowd me
in a queue with thousands of peo-
ple, and my survival instincts
take over. I want out!
After a few days of overpopu-
lated sightseeing, I needed a
break from humankind. So, I
called my old University of
Florida buddies, Kris and Harry,
to see what they were up to.
Harry Tiebout is a biology pro-
fessor at West Chester
University, and his wife Kris
Brugger is an environmental sci-
entist for Du Pont. Both of them
are active birders. So, what did
we do? We went pishing.
No, that's not a typo. Pishing
is a secret habit that many bird-
ers share, but only when in the


company of
other birders.
I guess I fit

started out
with the idea
of visiting
Valley Forge,
to see some
of Harry's
Pat study sites,
where his
Foster-Turley students sur-
... vey amphib-
ians and rep-
WILD WAYS tiles in the
warmer e
months. As we drove into this
famous national park, our eyes
were blind to the old buildings,
monuments and stone sculp-
tuires. We got right to the meat of
things, for us anyway. Animals.
Ecology. Biology. It was all
there, and I had great guides to
show me.
So, on the drive in, instead of
marveling at the small stone huts
of the encampment we admired
instead the recurrence of the
native grass prairies that have
bounded back after five years of
restoration work. Apparently
many people were saddened by
the National Park Service's deci-
sion not to keep the wide lawns
maintained, and to let it go feral.
Well, not Harry and Kris. What
the untrained eye might see as
weeds, they saw as renewed
habitat for breeding mead-
owlarks and wildflowers and
more butterfly species. As we
watched, a northern harrier
hawk glided low over the grass-
es, listening for the creaks and


Ah! The roar of the engines, the smells, the fans! I think all of this went through
the heads of my grandsons Dylan and Dalton when Bobby Jones, owner of the

ing legend Greg Sacks, let them load it into its trailer. The #50 car will

squeaks of its rodent prey and
herds of deer too many of them
- browsed at the edge of the
woods.
But it was only when we
got onto the hiking trail that the
pishing began. Although I had
heard of this practice, I must
admit I was startled when first
Harry, then Kris looked up at a
nearby tree and started making a
rough sound, "Pshhh, pshhh,
pshhh" while watching a
nuthatch on a limb. They were
pishing.
Within moments another
nuthatch flew nearby to check us
out, then a few sparrows joined
the group. Pishing, it seems,
mimics a bird distress call and
attracts the attention of small
birds in the area that want to see
what is going on. Soon, I was
happily pishing along with them
and we watched the birds flock-
ing into the nearby trees to
watch us.
Now that I've learned the new:
skill of pishing, I try it out every-'
where I go. In my free time at
Kayak Amelia, if no one is
around to lear me, I pish at the
trees, I pish at the bushes, I walk
around the parking lot pishing.
At home in my backyard, my
pishing is even more productive.
The woods nearby are full of
sparrows and warblers and
wrens but they are hard to see.
For the first time now I am able
to get photos of those small "little.
brown jobs" that usually perch
further away, but come in closer
to see what all the pishing is
about.
Although I now have some
photos of little brown jobs, noth-
ing I can shoot rivals my friend
Harry's photos. He has expand-
ed his lifelong love of birding
with a new hobby, digiscoping,
which pairs a digital camera with
a good birding telescope. With
far more skill and patience than I
could ever muster, Harry's pho-
tos reveal intimate details of even-
the smallest of birds. As you can
see in the photos on this page,
when he pishes he's got the pho-
tos to prove it.
Thanks, Harry, for sharing
some of your photos with us. It
gives the rest of us nature pho-
tographers something to shoot
for.
Happy pishing one and all!

Giants


pressure


Brady,


make him


just a guy
unday was a glorious
night for anyone tired
',; of the New England
lovefest. It was proba-
bly also a night of "what ifs" in
living rooms and sports bars
in and around Jacksonville.
What if the Jags had been able
to put consistent pressure on
Tom Brady?
The New York Giants
harassed and hurried New
England's golden boy all
night, proving to the rest of
the league that Brady be-
comes just a guy when he has
hands in his face and pads in
his gut. It was only a matter of
time before an opposing coach
said "what the hey" and sent
the house as opposed to hav-
ing his defense dissected by
Brady, who is without a doubt
the best quarterback of the -
modern era when he has time.
Tom Coughlin, Jackson-
ville's old coach, proved to be
the only one with big enough
stones to take that chance.
Hopefully for Jags' fans, their
current headman was taking
notes...
New England head coach
Bill Belichick walked off the
field Sunday without congratu-
lating Coughlin, supporting
the longstanding theory that
he is a horse's behind. I mean,
Coughlin's face isn't exactly
the first one I'd want to see
after my team choked away an
undefeated season either, but
show a little class ...
If the latest allegations that
a Patriots employee filmed a
St. Louis walk-through before
the Super Bowl in 2000 prove
true, we might not have to
worry about the manner in
which Belichick conducts him-
self, at least for a while.
Because he very well could be
suspended for a year ...
What was your favorite
Super Bowl commercial? I
think I'll have to go with the
/Bud Light cavemen.
"Wheel suck. Bottle opener
suck, too."...
CSTV.com has the Univer-
sity of Florida's 2008 football
recruiting class ranked at No.
3 behind Notre Dame and
Alabama, respectively. That's
three consecutive Top 5 class-
es for the Gators if anyone is
counting. It'll be interesting to
dissect these classes in about
three or four years, when the
proof will be in the pudding
and not in a number created
by some recruiting service ...
New Michigan head foot-
ball coach Rich Rodriguez is
still in a legal battle with West
Virginia over a $4 million buy-
out clause that was reportedly
written into his contract while
in Morgantown. Rodriguez
claims the school reneged on
a verbal promise to reduce or
eliminate the clause, which
school officials deny.
All the "he said, she said"
aside, Michigan or Rodriguez
should pay the $4 million. If
they don't, what good is a con-
tract? ...
The University of Florida
basketball team displayed its
youth in a 19-point loss at
Arkansas Saturday, tumbling
the Gators out of the Top 25
the second time this season.
Honestly, being unranked is
probably best for this team
right now. Having to suit up
and play in some hostile are-
nas is plenty enough pressure
for such a young group. If
Florida head coach Billy
Donovan gets this team into
the NCAA tournament and
they manage to advance past
the first round, he should be
named coach of the year,
hands down ...
One more Super Bowl
note: To all you youngsters
out there, I feel compelled to
say that Tom Petty used to be

Pirate grapplers clinch district championship


Yulee places fourth,

sends six to region
BETH JONES
News-Leader
"'The Pirate wrestlers racked up 196 team points
Saturday to take the district crown at Episcopal. The
hosts garnered 159 points for second, Bishop Kenny
was third with 157 and Yulee finished fourth with
105.5 points in the 10-team district.
"We are very excited for and proud of these young
men," FBHS Coach Mark Durr said. "We told them
last week that we wanted them to experience the feel-
ing of being champions. It was great to see these
young men experience that feeling. Nobody gave
them this experience, they earned it. We think that is
one of the most valuable lessons of Pirate wrestling
and that's if you arewilling to commit to the team and
go to work then you will be a champion.

these girls for making it to the play-

The Lady Pirates led 30-16 at

Ribault," Landtroop said. "We
walked out on their court with a
selective memory and forgot about


the first time we played them this
year. This was just another oppo-

start in the first quarter, we were
only down by six points with three
minutes to go in the fourth quarter.
We made one too many mistakes at
the very end of the ballgame and
could not overcome the deficit with
the time remaining.
"Overall, a great team effort and
the girls' confidence level got a


shot in the arm for the next round
of the playoffs."

Vendola back in the ring


BETLI JONES
News-Leader

Boxer Chris Vendola, 36, of Fernandina
Beach turned pro just two years ago and is
6-0. He'll have his next bout Feb. 22 in the
Bourbon Street Brawl at Bourbon Street
Station at the corner of Atlantic Boulevard
and St. Johns Bluff Road in Jacksonville.
Vendola, a used car director, husband
and father, is wearing another -hat these
days. He started his own company, Main
Event Productions, to promote local events.
"I sell a lot of tickets myself," Vendola
said. "When you bring in a promoter out of
state, he puts his own fighters on the card.
They did it off my dollar. The next day the
phone rang off the hook. Every promoter
wanted to come to Jacksonville with their
fighters.
"I looked at it from a business point. I like
to keep things local. In Jacksonville, there are
a bunch of fighters. Why not have local guys
fight? Let everyone locally benefit."
Vendola named attorney Julie Sears, a
former Olympic swimmer, vice president of
the company and contacted a matchmaker,
who handles the paperwork for events.
"Chris is uniquely able to create a busi-
ness out of his boxing," Sears said. "He is


smart, loyal, fair' and likeable and attracts
people with the same qualities. He has devel-
oped a substantial group df fans and sup-
porters and doesn't need a promoter to come
in and take the credit for that.
"All Chris needed was a little help in
jumping through some legal hoops, some
organizational support and a nudge to
become his own promoter (registered with
the Florida Boxing Commission). The rest
is Chris and Feb. 22 should be a great first
of many for Main Event Productions."
Vendola (6-foot-2 and. 235 pounds) will
face Marcus Patterson of North Carolina in
the main event heavyweight match. There
will also be a light heavyweight champi-
onship bout and Jacksonville's Jose Roman
. and Josh Ruckers will also fight. Boxing
starts at 7 p.m.
In addition to getting a business off the
ground, Vendola continues to train for his
upcoming fight.
"Working in the car business, it's tough
hours," he said. "I'm in the gym 3-4 times a
week."
As for his business venture, Vendola said
"it's just taking off. It's a great business deci-
sion. I market myself."
For tickets, contact Vendola at (904) 556-
1679.

.. Most of us experience some form
of joint stiffness or loss of flexibil-
ity when we hit too many balls.
Here are some suggestions in
order to maintain flexibility and
keep your muscles in use.
Regardless of your age, partici-
pating consistently in a golf-specific exercise
program can greatly improve your game. A golf-'
specific conditioning program consists of resis-
tance training, cardiovascular conditioning, and
functional flexibility. Walking, biking, stair-step-
ping, and running are examples of cardiovascu-
lar exercise. For flexibility, try reaching your
hands to the ceiling and stretching to your sides
a couple of times each day. Tilting your head
and neck back and forth and side-to-side are
also very common exercises.


The FBR Open set a PGATour attendance record Sunday with an estimated 538,356 vis-
itors, which surpassed the previous record of 536,777 set by the tournament in 2006.: 14
Sunday's attendance was reported at just 71,805, a modest estimate compared with last '--N'
year's showing of 93,475 on Sunday, according to the golf toumament's organizer. While FBR .
officials said the tournament's close proximity to the Super Bowl might have been one of the rea- \ *
sons for lower numbers on Sunday, overall the Super Bowl was credited with drawing scores of
guests to the Valley and to TPC Scottsdale. It was not known whether traffic was a deterrent in drawing visitors
out on thie final day of the event, officials said. Even with Sunday's low numbers, the record-setting totals for the
three other days of the event were enough to break the overall attendance record for the week. Three records
were set for individual days 83,657 fans on Thursday, 120,891 on Friday and an immense 170,802 on Saturday.

OUTDOORS


Logging a



float plan

Many fishermen carry Emergency
Personal Locators, or EPIRBs, on
board and store them in a safe place in
their sport fishing boat. In an emer-
gency situation, the EPIRB is activated, which auto-
matically transmits a signal via satellite to the near-
est Coast Guard station, giving your exact location.
EPIRBs range in price from $300-900.
However, there is a chance that you and your
fishing buddies won't have time to activate your
boat's EPIRB in an' emergency situation. A sudden
fire that erupts in your boat
.may not give you time to
Retrieve your EPIRB. The first
Thing that comes to mind is to
get out of the boat and into the
water and, with the new super-
fast sport fishing boats, there
is a chance of hitting a large
object just under the surface,
tossing everyone on board
either in the water or uncon-
Terry Lacoss scious. Then you suddenly
-- ...I- a realize exactly what has hap-
OIITDOORS opened to you and your fishing
buddies. The boat is now sink-
ing to the bottom and you have
lost all means of communication. And, worse yet,
you are swimming helplessly in the ocean and no
one knows where you are.
"During the 2007 AT&T Greater Jacksonville
Kingfish Tournament, Coast Guard officials took
the time at the captain's mandatory meeting to
explain the importance of filling out a float plan,"
James Dicks said. "They also talked about the
importance of a float plan and how it would be a
tremendous aid in getting help to boaters in an
emergency situation. The Coast Guard wanted
everyone to fill out a float plan form and either
leave it in their vehicle or with a friend."
Dicks operates an Orlando-based company,
Premiere-Tec-Solutions, which primarily does busi-
ness with the U.S. government. It has data facilities
to work with the world's financial markets for our
own companies. Dicks has also spent the past few
years traveling around the world giving financial
briefs to our men and women of the armed servic-
es.
"I find it's a way to give back to the men and
women of the armed forces. I wouldn't be as suc-
cessful today if it wasn't for what I learned while I
served in the Marine Corps," Dicks said.
In 2007, Dicks actually met with Coast Guard
officials and explained the idea of building a plat-
form to automate the process of filing and closing a
float plan.
"I asked the MCPOG if the Coast Guard would
ave a o initvi-- it ra project such as this," Dicks
-i;:d HiS ri' :,ply as la let him see fheifloat plan
when it was finished.

-Wo- ri


Sport fishing boats,
above, now can log
in a float plan
when fishing off-
shore. In the event
of an accident, "the
float plan becomes
valuable informa-
tion for rescue
efforts. Left, fisher-
men fill their bait
wells with live baits
and prepare for a
long offshore day
of sport fishing.
Logging in a float'
plan beforehand on
land may be criti-
cal to their ultimate,
safety.

The BoatU.S. Foundation for
Boating Safety and Clean Water
has joined the Izaak Walton
League of America's campaign to
help stop the spread of aquatic
invasive species and is urgingall
recreational boaters who trailer
their vessels to take the Leigue's
"Clean Boats Challenge."
The challenge iSa qLIIZat
www.CleanBoats.org that edu-
cates boaters and anglers on how
to inspect and clean their boats
to ensure that lakes and streams


are protected from non-native,
aquatic hitchhikers.
"Taking the Clean Boats
Challenge will give boaters and
anglers the information they
need.to make personal choices
that can help stop the spread of
invasive species," said Susan
Shingledecker, BoatU.S. ,
Foundation director of clean
water programs.
I In addition t o the short and
easy-to-comblete Clean Water
Challenge, the website also
includes information on how-to
clean a boat properly and some
tips for trailer boaters. Forexam-
ple, it is recommended that a
boat and motor be drained and'
inspected for mud or plant life
before departing the launch
ramp. It then should be allowed
to dry completely for five days
before launching into a different
body of water.
The website has links to a
clean boatvideo demonstration
and maps identifying the loca-
tions and- spread of invasive
species. An educator's resource
guide is also available at the web-
site. Boaters can even take an
online "Stop Aquatid Hitchhikers
Pledge."

will receive a free book and a
brochure that provides guidance
on choosing books appropriate
for young children, family read-
ing tips, a registration form for
the child's first library card, and a
directory of Nassau County
Libraries.
Children's books for the pro-
gram were selected and supplied
by new resident Debbie Price,
who became a member of the
local Friends of the Library group
upon moving to Amelia Island in
2006 from Connecticut. "Children
are our future," Price said in a
press release, "and books and
reading allow a child to explore
the world." Price selected bright-
ly colored board books featuring
favorite characters from Sesame
Street and Dragon Tales to start
the program. The UPS store has
donated printing services for the
brochure.
"Books for Babies" has been
implemented in partnership with
Baptist Medical Center Nassau,
where approximately 480 babies
are born each year. Angela
Fontaine, R.N., and nurse manag-
er for the Maternal Newborn
Unit said, "We are so pleased to
be a part of this program and
help give children a head start in
reading and in life."
