Greenway blues:



Fresh, salt or



all for naught?


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader,


Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners will discuss again Tuesday
what to do next about dying trees
on the Egans Creek Greenway.
They are likely to hear again from
local citizens who want a portion of
the Greenway restored to fresh-
water wildlife habitat.
City commissioners passed a
motion 4-1 at a Feb. 5 meeting to
have a scientific study done on the
Egans Creek wetlands south of
Jasmine Street. Mayor Bill Leeper
voted against.
Commissioner Ron Sapp asked
for the item on the meeting agen-
da because the Florida Department
of Transportation's plans to restore
the wetlands from salt to fresh
water were delayed by a complaint
from local resident Clinch
Kavanaugh.

Students hear

soldier's tale

of life in Iraq
GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
It all began with an act of kind-
ness and a show of support.
Students in Judy Walker's fifth-
grade class filled a box with
stuffed animals, candy, greeting
cards and toiletries, then shipped
it to U.S. Army Maj: Kevin Rice
and the soldiers in his unit sta-
tioned in Karbala, Iraq.
In return, the class at Emma
Love Hardee Elementary School
had an opportunity to meet Rice
and shake his hand on Jan 24 dur-
ing his trip home to Fernandina
while on leave.
"This is awesome," said one
student, reacting to the surprise.
Rice, a friend of Walker, sur-
prised her and her students when
he walked into their classroom.
He wanted to thank the class in
person for sending the care pack-
age.
"I can't tell you how much we
appreciate it," he said about the
package, including cards and

hand-drawn pictures. "We stuck
them up all over the camp."
Rice, who stood in front of the
class answering questions for
about an hour, also brought a gift
for the students. He presented the
class with a challenge coin. The
coin symbolizes "unit morale and
unit cohesion," he said.
"Every morning touch it for us
and wish us good luck," said Rice,
who lives and works with the Iraqi
army as an advisor.
The coin features the insignias
of the U.S. and Iraqi divisions on
one side and a buffalo, the unit's
mascot, on the other.

everything from cultural differ-
ences, such as language and tra-i
ditional attire, to food and weath-
er conditions in the desert region.'
Rice pointed to Karbala on a class-
room map.
Karbala is "a big city, a very
holy city for Muslims," he said.
"Surprisingly, Iraq doesn't look all
that different from here."


'What happens ifyo

Iraqis call August "the month
of fire," Rice told the students. "It
got so hot it broke our ther-
mometer" when temperatures
rose to 140 degrees. But when the
temperature drops at night, the
dry cold air "cuts right through
the bone," he said.
"We buy the local food because
it's an important thing to help the
local economy," Rice said. As for
Iraq's cuisine, "It's great food. I
love it."
'"What's the biggest war you
ever fought?" asked a student.
"This one." It is "a big force-on-
force war," Rice said. "We get
attacked very often," he said. "I
don't tell my mama that."
His mother, Sylvia Slebos,
brother and other family mem-
bers joined Rice on his visit to
Emma Love Hardee. While over-
joyed to have her son home for a
brief visit "We were all in tears
when he came home" Slebos
continues to shield herself from
information about the war.
"I don't watch a lot of news,"
she said. "I have to give him to
God. That's the only way I get
through it."
"I've been very lucky. Nobody's
gotten too close to me," he said
about surviving combat.

"Are you a soldier?" asked an

Rice in the hallway.
"I am," Rice replied.
Rice, home on leave from
Karbala, Iraq, where he is serv-
ing as an advisor to the Iraqi

'Distractions' face


teenaged drivers


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
What is one of the most exciting
moments in the lives of many
teenagers the day they get their
driver's license can be one of the
most terrifying moments for their
parents.
And parents worry for good rea-
son. As a group, teen drivers.are
the largest percentage of drivers in
Florida involved in vehicle acci-
dents each year, and traffic acci-
dents are the leading cause of
death of teenagers nationwide.
And law enforcement officers
know the statistics all too well,
often being the first responders to
accidents that leave teenagers seri-
ously injured or dead; so for police
officers who have teenage children,
handing over the keys to their new
driver can be especially scary.
With a 15-year-old daughter
preparing to get her learner's per-
mit, Chief Hank Martinez with the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office can
identify with other nervous par-
ents.
"When she is able to drive on
her own, I'll have to know from
point A to point B where she's
going," Martinez said. "You have to
build that trust."
Fernandina Beach traffic cop


Kids do think that
they're invincible.'
ANK MARTINEZ. NASSAU
COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE

Marty Scott also has a teenage
daughter. At 17, Scott's daughter
has a driver's license and is able to
drive by herself but her father
keeps a watchful eye on her and,
when he's in the vehicle too, he
critiques her driving and reminds
her of safety tips and the rules of
the road.
"I talk to her about how fast
she's driving, what she's doing
wrong," he said. "I talk, and look
over at the speedometer."
Martinez and Scott agreed,
most teen drivers don't intention-
ally drive recklessly. But they do
tend to get easily distracted, and
distraction plus inexperience is a
dangerous combination.
"Talking on cell phones is a big
thing," said Scott. "It's not the great-
est thing in the world for anyone to
be talking on a cell phone while
driving, but for a new driver that
doesn't have a lot of experience,

Daring or patriotic, boat names speak volumes

For theNews-Leader

Boat names can reveal much
about the personality, lifestyle,
passions or experiences of a boat
owner. For 2007, the BoatU.S. list
of Top 10 Most Popular Boat
Names is particularly revealing:
1) Black Pearl: The name of a
fast, stealthy and intimidating fic-
tional ship from the Disney
"Pirates of the Caribbean" films, a
- recreational boat with this
moniker was probably named by
the kids.
2) Liberty: A patriotic name
that first appeared on the Top 10
list just after 9/11, the owner of
* = this vessel is clearly passionate
about the freedoms enjoyed in


7. ,B F-


the U.S.
3) Second
Wind:
Perhaps this
boat owner
has had a life
changing
experience


and feels that their boat now
gives them a second lease on life.
4) Amazing Grace: It could be
that this boat name borrowed
from a hymn provides the boat
owner with a new spiritual
outlet.
5) Aquaholic: This name illus-
trates a boater's chronic love for
the waterways. This boat is prob-
ably the first one out of the slip in
the morning and the last one


back in at the end of the day.
6) Knot on Call: Perhaps
named by a boater in a prdfes-
sional field or industry with non-
traditional work hours, this boat
name affirms a desire to break
away from work pressures.
7) Second Chance: See No. 3,
Second Wind.
8) Wanderlust: Defined as "a
very strong or irresistible im-
pulse to travel," this boat owner
clearly has a passion to cruise
and explore the waterways.
9) The Dog House: Being in
one (dog house) isn't necessarily
bad for this boat owner as their
vessel likely provides a "walled-
off' escape away from the distrac-
tions of everyday life.


10) Carpe Diem or Seas the
Day: This boat owner likely
believes that boating allows them ,
to enjoy life at its fullest.
The BoatU.S. Boat Graphics
service offers a free library of
more than 8,000 boat names and
also allows boaters to easily
select, custom design and pre-
view boat names online without
having to pay up front. For more
information, visit the online serv-
ice at www.BoatUS.com/boat-

Pharmacy robbed at knifepoint


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A man robbed the island Winn-
Dixie pharmacy about 83:30 p.m.
Monday, holding anll-employee at
knifepoint while demanding not
money, but drugs.
Fernandina Beach police are
searching for the "Oxycontin ban-
dit," according to Police Chief Jim
Hurley.
The suspect took four bottles of
Oxycontin, a prescription narcotic
used as a painkiller. Estimated
worth of the drugs is $1,737,
according to police.
The 61-year-old victim told
police he saw a man sitting in a
chair near the pharmacy. He asked

CITY Continued from 1A
and FDOT to be involved in an
informational workshop "about
the actual science we should apply
when creating estuaries." Sapp
also suggested seeking the advice
of Clay Montague of the
University of Florida, an associ-
ate professor specializing in wet-
lands ecology and estuarine sys-
tems, who has been
recommended by Kavanaugh.
Sapp suggested the workshop
because, according to City
Manager Michael Czymbor.
Kavanaugh's petition will delay the
FDOT project three or four more
months.
"Away to amicably resolve the
situation is to look at science and
listen to a scientist," said Sapp.
Commissioner Bruce Malcolm,
however, said he was reluctant to
go against the local constituency
because it has been "overwhelm-
ingly in favor" of returning the wet-
lands to a freshwater system.
Residents made it clear at a city
meeting last April they want a stop'
to the saltwater intrusion and the
area returned to a freshwater habi-
tat. Commissioners at that meeting
voted 3-2 for a resolution calling for
FDOT to take immediate action
to stop the saltwater flow. Sapp
and Vice Mayor Joe Gerrity voted
against the resolution at that April
meeting.
"It was clearly the consensus of
the community to restore south
of Jasmine (Street) to fresh water,"
said Dave Lott, a member of the
Florida Waterfronts Partnership
Committee. "We all know that we
, can bring expert witnesses that
can state one side or another. ...
We're spending taxpayer money
to hear scientists say you can
(have either salt or fresh water)."
"People believed that saltwater
intrusion was the cause of the
problem," said Commissioner Ken
Walker. 'This (motion) expedites
the process of letting the legal
objection run out."


Annual



' V


"We're not marine scientists,"
said Gerrity. 'We should have (had
a study done) nine months ago."
He added that the decision to turn
the wetlands back into a freshwa-
ter system "may very well have
been a knee-jerk or emotional deci-
sion."
Sapp noted the official com-
mission vote was still 3-2 in favor
of re-creating a freshwater system.
'The only thing that has changed
is that we have a complaint filed.
The complaint says, 'Let's look at
the science of this.'"
"We're stopped now and let's
listen to an expert," Sapp added.
Czymbor noted, however, that
FDOT had already designed
improvements on the freshwater
system and has probably already
spent tens or hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars in preparation for
the project.
'The bottom line is we have to
get a scientist involved in this proj-
ect," said Kavanaugh after the
meeting. "All I ask is that (com-
missioners) sit down and listen to
what the scientist has to say."
Kavanaugh said he believes
Egans Creek is the "single most
important ecosystem on' the
island."
"People don't understand what
an estuary is," he said. "It's not
about salt versus fresh water. ...
How in the world can anybody be
against having a scientist involved?
That's why it's screwed up now,
because they didn't have a scientist
involved."
According to David Miracle of
the SJRWMD, the district is in the
process of sending out an order to
dismiss Kavanaugh's petition on
procedural grounds. Kavanaugh
will, however, have the opportu-
nity to make corrections to the
petition, after which the matter
could go to a formal hearing.
Leeper at the meeting voted
against the motion, saying, "I'm
the mayor and I want (Egans
Creek) back the way it was."

TEENS Continued from 1A
it's worse ... it's a lot of distracted
driving, a group of people being in
the vehicle, playing music loud,
paying all, Il ii, to friends, that's
what I see a lot of."
Scott said driving while talking
on a cell phone is comparable to
driving with a blood-alcohol level of
0.08, the level at which a person is
legally considered too impaired to
drive.
Cell phones, loud music and
having lots of friends in the vehicle
are some common things police
officers say distract teen drivers on
a regular basis. Whatever parents
can do to limit those distractions
can make their teenager a safer
driver and police also urge par-
ents to talk to their children about
safe driving and to be vigilant about
knowing when and where their chil-
dren are driving.
Martinez said some parents
learn the mileage of places around
town their child is likely to be driv-
ing to and from, and spot check


the odometer to make sure their
new driver is really going where
he or she claims.
In Florida, teenagers can get a
learner's permit, which allows them
to practice driving as long as they
are accompanied by a licensed driv-
er over the age of 21. They can get
a driver's license at the age of 16 or
17, after they have had their learn-
er's permit for one year and have
passed a driving test. That license
allows the teen to drive alone with-
in certain hours; drivers are not
granted unrestricted solo driving
privileges until they turn 18.
Martinez said it's important for
young drivers to recognize that
they're inexperienced and not invin-
cible.
"Kids do think that they're invin-
cible," he said. "But we have done
it, we've been to traffic crashes
where kids are maimed or even
killed ... I tell my daughter, it's my
job to worry about you and to know
that you're safe, that's all a parent
is trying to do."

Meet wind codes, save on insurance


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader

Homeowners may save money
on their property insurance bill if
their house meets the state's hur-
ricane wind codes.
Although insurance companies
are required to inform consumers
of a new "wind mitigation" pro-
gram created by the state of
Florida, most people still don't
know about it, says Steve Taylor of
Taylor Inspection Services.
The program, which started
last fall, requires insurers to send
a list of discounts to all new and
renewed policyholders. Home-
owners who go through a hurri-
cane inspection by a qualified pro-
fessional may be eligible for
discounts on their insurance rates.
Taylor said the reason con-
sumers are unaware of the possi-
ble savings is because "insurance
companies are not going to vol-
unteer information because the
more people that know about it
cuts into their profits," he said.
The information is out there,
he said, but "you have to read
the fine print ... it's usually
attached to insurance renewal


'We gave the form to the insurance company. fol-
lowed up and did in fact save money.'
HOMEOWNER JAN COTE-MEROW


information (and) not easily under-
standable."
Taylor's company provides
wind mitigation inspections
using the official "Uniform
Mitigation Verification Inspection
Form." He inspects houses for
specific features such as roof mate-
rials and attachments, wall
construction and opening protec-
tion such as hurricane shutters -
then sends the form back to the
insurer, which must provide dis-
counts if the house has these fea-
tures.
Local resident Jan Cote-Merow
said even though she and her hus-
band were "a little bit skeptical"
about the program, they were
delighted when Taylor's inspec-
tion saved them $120 a month on
home insurance. Their house,
located on Pembrook Drive and
built in the late '80s, had a roof
that met the wind mitigation code.:


"We gave the (inspection) form to
the insurance company, followed
up and did in fact save money,"
she said.
Cote-Merow said they only
heard of the program because
they already knew Taylor. She
added that they were surprised
they hadn't heard of the program
because her husband, Tom, "is on
top of insurance allowances."
Taylor says it is "highly proba-
ble that any home may have some
of these (wind mitigation) fea-
tures." He also says that every
home he has inspected has had a
reduction in insurance rates. The
inspection, he said, costs $150 and
the form he fills out for insurers is
valid for five years. Qualified
homeowners can also receive a
check back from their insurer if
their insurance is already paid for
the year.
Grant funds up to $5,000 are

Mary Jo Griffin, 84, finds her volunteer work with Guardian
ad Litem "very rewarding, especially when the judge agrees
with your recommendations."


For children who find their
home a source of chaos rather than
solace, the world is a frightening
place.
A Guardian ad Litem, or GAL,
can help ease the fear faced by chil-
dren who have been removed from
their homes because of alleged
abuse, abandonment or neglect By
listening to the child and providing
a voice for them in the courtroom,
GALs give children a sense of sta-
bility at a time when their world
has been turned upside down.
As part of a team including GAL
staff and attorneys, the GAL is a
court-appointed advocate for chil-
dren in crisis. They learn about the
child's situation and make recom-
mendations to the court, which may
help bring a happy resolution to a
scary time.

Flavored drugs a risk to unsuspecting children


Florida Attorney General Bill
McCollum and the Florida
Association of School Resource
Officers have issued a consumer
advisory warning parents, teachers
and school administrators that fla-
vored drugs, particularly metham-
phetamines, heroin and marijuana,
..are circulating throughout the
United States. These drugs could be
ingested by unsuspecting younger
children and are extremely harmful,
say authorities.
According to recent reports,
methamphetamine with added fla-
vors was first noticed on the West
Coast, but is rapidly making its way
across the country. Flavors can
include strawberry, chocolate, cola
and others. The flavoring reduces
the bitter taste of the drug and does
not affect the potency of the drug.
Children may mistake the drug for
candy pop rocks.
Another disturbing report is that


of "cheese," a form of heroin com-
bined 'with Tylenol-PM caplets.
Cheese is particularly dangerous
because it combines the double
depressants provided by the hero-
in and the sleep-inducing medica-
tion.
Additional reports of gumballs
_..filled with marijuana and naptptij,
packagedd or disguised as candyjoWr
other more enticing objects should


be considered serious threats by
parents, teachers and school admin-
istrators.
Children should be advised not
to accept any candy that may resem-
ble one of these new drug forms
and should turn over any in their
possession to their teacher, princi-
pal or, school resource officer.
Firento should encourage their chil-
dren, to avoid any participation in-

VIEWPOLINT/NASSAU COUNTY SHERIFF TOMMY SEAGRAVES



Time to bring Animal Control 'out of dark ages'


I have been asked on several
occasions why the Sheriff's
Office would want to man-
age and operate the Nassau
County Animal Control. In
December 2007, it was requested
by a county commissioner, vari-
ous animal rescue groups and a
number of citizens I serve that
the Sheriff's Office consider
assuming control over the coun-
ty's Animal Control operation
and formulate a proposal to pres-
ent to the county commission. At
first I didn't know if it was some-
thing I wanted to get involved in.
It only took one tour of our ani-
mal shelter and a close look at
the operation of the department
to convince me otherwise. Quite
frankly, what I saw and learned
shocked and disheartened me.
During my visit I was immedi-
ately greeted by a stench that
was nothing short of overwhelm-
ing. I saw dogs that were forced
to live in their own waste and
several large cats packed in a
small cage with no litter box. I
also saw dead animals packed


into a freezer. I asked a staff
member who decided which ani-
mals would be euthanized and
was told that she herself makes
the decision. When I asked what
criteria she used to decide which
animals would be put to death,
she advised that there really was-
n't any. It didn't take long for me
to realize something desperately
needed to be done.
Clearly, our animal shelter
needs a complete and thorough
cleaning. The animals housed in
the shelter need to be properly
cared for and a greater emphasis
placed on developing programs
that would give these animals a
chance to find caring and loving
homes. I knew the job wouldn't
be easy. But after seeing the hor-
rible conditions of the animals in
the shelter, I knew that I couldn't
in good conscience walk away
and do nothing. I felt that the
Sheriff's Office would be in the
best position to immediately fix
the problem' and, in the long
term, manage the county's ani-
mal control program.


In evaluating how we were
going to solve this crisis, I
looked at the county's Animal
Control budget, which amounted
to $555,902 for 2007-8. During
the 2006-7 budget year, the coun-
ty spent $610,874 for animal serv-
ices. The 2007-8 budget provided
for only two animal control offi-
cers for the entire county and a
less than adequate staff to meet
the daily demands of running the
facility. Amazingly there is no
person on staff or any program
in place that focuses on develop-
ing a long-term program for com-
munity education and marketing
the adoption of some potentially
great pets.
In preparing my proposed
budget I looked at what some of
our neighboring counties spend
for their animal control programs
and have provided them for your
review:
Duval, $4.2 million, or
$130.44 per animal
Clay, $1.4 million, or
$152.86 per animal
St. Johns, $1.3 million, or


DOB~SONANSWESYOR QUSTIN


Q


UESTION:We have a 9-
year-old boy who is quiet,
careful, thoughtful and
very, very shy. Does that
mean he is not "all boy"?
Should we be trying to
change him, to make him
more assertive and


aggressive?
DR. DOBSON: The wonderful
thing about the way human beings are
designed is their marvelous variability
and complexity. We are all different
and unique. My previous discussions of
aggressive, risk-taking boys represent
an effort to characterize young males,
showing what is typical and how they
are different from their sisters.
However, they also differ from one
another on a thousand traits.
I remember taking my 10-year-
old son and his friend on a skiing trip
one day. As we rode the gondola to the
top of the mountain, I prepared to take
a picture of the two boys with the beau-
tiful landscape visible behind them.
Ryan, my son, was smiling and downing
for the camera, while Ricky was just
sitting quietly. Ryan then asked Ricky to
wave and goof off like he was doing.
Ricky replied solemnly, "I'm not that
kind of person." It was true.The two
boys were at opposite ends of the con-
tinruum in their personalities. I still have
chat picture of the two kids one going
crazy and the other appearing bored
half to death. Each of them was "all

boy."
Your son is certainly not alone in
his characteristic shyness. According
to the New York Longitudinal Study,
approximately 15 percent of babies are
somewhat quiet and passive In the nurs.
ery.That feature of their temperaments
tends to be persistent throughout child-
hood and beyond. They may be very
spontaneous or funny when they are
comfortable at home. When they are
with strangers, however, their tongues
are thrust Into their cheeks and they
don't know what to say. Some kids are
like this because they have been hurt or
rejected in the past. The more likely
explanation is that they were born that
way. Some parents are embarrassed
by the introversion of their children
and try to change them. It is a fool's
errand. No amount of goading or push-
ing by their parents will make them
outgoing, flamboyant and confident.
My advice to you Is to go with
the flow.Accept your child just the way
he is made.Then look for those special
qualities that give your boy Individual-


Ity and potential. Nurture him.
Cultivate him.And then give him time
to develop into his own unique per-
sonality like no other human being on
Earth.

animal than those polled. I also
found that in years past, private
organizations have come in
and attempted to run Animal
Control on what the county bud-
geted and were unable to do so
simply because of inadequate
funding.
In addition, I learned that in
2002 then County Commissioner
Vicki Samus investigated an alle-
gation of animal abuse by First
Coast Humane Society employ-
ees. Commissioner Samus visit-
ed the animal shelter (the same
shelter I visited in December
2007) and reported horrific con-
ditions of the animals and the
facility. As a result, the county
commission asked three groups,
including the State Attorney's
Office, to investigate the condi-
tions at the county's animal shel-
ter. The county commission
owed to visit the shelter more
often to check conditions.
For years now, our communi-.
ty has been faced with the contin-
uing theme that "something
needs to be done" with Animal


Control. The Sheriff Office's pro-
posed budget would finally
address this need. The budget
allows for the hiring of an experi-
enced and qualified staff to prop-
erly operate our shelter, includ-
ing the addition of four animal
control officers to respond to
calls for service from the com-
munity. My budget would result
in a clean and sanitary facility
with a staff member dedicated to
developing and implementing
adoption programs with local res-
cue groups and retailers and
community education programs
that would emphasize the impor-
tance of spaying and neutering
pets.
I calculate it will cost
$939,398, or $134.20 per animal,
to get an adequate animal
control program up and running
in our county. While this may
appear to be a substantial
increase at first, it really isn't
when you consider the fact that
our Animal Control program has
been sadly under funded in past
years and we are, at this point,
playing "catch up."
I cannot in good conscience,
allow the current situation in our
animal shelter to continue in its
current state without bringing it
to your attention and attempting
to correct it.
This problem has been in
existence for far too long. If we

do not step up to the plate and fix
this problem now animals will
continue to exist in deplorable
conditions, they will continue to
contract distemper and other
infectious diseases due to the
unsanitary environment at our
current facility, the taxpayers will
continue to be told that there is
no Animal Control officer to
respond to your call for service
and, tragically, many pets that
are clearly adoptable will be
needlessly put to death.
I understand this is a big com-
mitment for the county, but I sin-
cerely believe it is time to bring
our animal services program out
of the dark ages. And we can no
longer use quick fix Band-aids to
solve the animal control issues in
Nassau County.
In closing, the county needs
to find a way to adequately solve
its animal control problems. The
Sheriff's Office wants to be part
of the solution.
However, if the county com-
mission feels that there is a bet-
ter solution out there, they
should pursue it. Bottom line, all
I would like to see is that the ter-
rible conditions our animals are
forced to live in be improved,
adoptable pets have a chance to
find a loving home and an Animal
Control officer is able to timely
respond to the community's call
for assistance.
I, like the taxpayers of this
county, want to see an Animal
Control program we can be
proud of.

Observations on elections:
Mike Huckabee doesn't have a
chance of being nominated as the
Republican candidate for president but
there's one thing about the man that I like: He's
not too proud to live in a trailer.
Well, it really wasn't a trailer, his wife, Janet,
corrected some smart-aleck reporter. It was man-
ufactured housing.
What happened was, the governor's mansion
in Arkansas was being renovated about eight
years ago, leaving the
Huckabees homeless.
|- Unable to find acceptable
temporary housing, Mrs.
Huckabee called the
Arkansas Manufactured
.1 Housing Association. And
.- guess what? The associa-
S tion donated a home that
Swas made elsewhere and
brought in. It wasabout a
the size of a tplwide.
Phil Nothing wrong with
Hudgins that. The First Family
Hudgin rather liked it. "It may be
."'. difficult to move out," Janet
FROM THE Huckabee said while occu-
HOME OFFICE paying the place.
Maybe Mike Huckabee
should have reminded voters that as governor he
lived in a humble abode and that he can feel their
pain. Not sure that would have helped, though.
After all, John McCain lived in a POW camp for
five and a half years.
I'm not a political pollster, but if I had to guess,
I'd guess more undecided voters have been slog-
ging through this election year than in any year
in memory. It'll be easier now that the offering
has been narrowed down. But at one time, when
the lineup for both parties looked like Disney
World at hiring time, most of what I heard was, "I
really don't know who to support."
But at least this year offers people with sub-
stance. You may not agree with their substance,
but it's there. Just imagine the mess if Warren G.
Harding, one of our worst presidents and, I might
add, a former newspaper editor, were nominated.
today. The one thing Harding had going for him
was looks. He looked presidential. But he wasn't.
And in the end, he agreed. "I am not fit for this
office," he said, "and never should have been
here."
The question is: Would we elect a person in
2008 because he or she looks presidential? If
your answer is yes, tell me, "Which one looks
presidential?" All I can say is a couple of them
look a little vice presidential.
Technology and exit polls have taken the sus-
pense out of voting. At one minute after 7 p.m.,
some TV anchor guy is telling you who won. I
remember when a daily newspaper I worked for
joined forces with a radio station to man nearly
every polling place and call in results.
One year, the outcome of a bond referendum
to build a new library hinged on the votes at one
tiny precinct in the northern part of the county.
But the election workers up there counted their
few votes and went to bed. Sometime after mid-
night, we finally learned the results.
The bond referendum passed by one vote.

'Gutter politics'


There is a particular strategy that is often
used in gutter politics which goes some-
thing like this: If you say or write an alle-
gation about your opponent often enough,
and with enough emotion and certainty, there will
be a portion of the population who will believe it,
whether it's true or not. That type of tactic is being
used in our own community, and to not refute such
charges with factual information is to ensure its suc-
cess.
The newcomer to this approach is Steve Nicklas,
who wrote in his last column (Feb. 6), "The resound-
ing approval of Amendment 1 the anti-tax initiative
- last week sent a harsh message to local officials
eager to heap more taxes on the citizenry." He went
on to say, "'Too many times it appeared local officials
would find ways and places to spend tax revenues,
rather than return them to their rightful owners (tax-
payers)."
To those of us who believe taxes are too high,
this type of rhetoric strikes a chord, but is it an accu-
rate portrayal of what the current county commis-
sion has actually done? I think not.
The current county board started the year by
repealing the 5-cent gas tax, then followed up by pay-
ing off $12 million in landfill debt, saving county tax-
payers $60,000 each month in interest alone, and we
eliminated the $100 annual landfill assessment for
each residence. When the annual budget process
started in the spring, it was my instruction to county
staff to prepare one that could be funded at a mini-
mum of 5 percent below the rollback rate, a feat that
had not been accomplished in recent years. With the
support of my colleagues, we approved one with
even greater savings for taxpayers, and it was an
idea that was conceived long before the legislature
began tinkering with local revenues.


Boyle


ignores
Perhaps Mr. Nicklas was still
thinking of past county boards,
but since the last election in
2006, when Commissioner Barry
Holloway and I were first elected,
we have kept our campaign
promises to lower taxes, and we
have a "perfect record" (even if it
is only one year) of lowering
taxes, not raising them "to heap
on the .citizenry."
But Nicklas' efforts pale in
comparison to those of the -


"Dean of Disinformation," Robert Weintraub, the
head of a group called "The East Nassau
Homeowners' Council." Whereas Nicklas merely
misrepresents the facts, Weintraub manufactures his
own to fit his "issue du jour."
Weintraub and I have clashed ever since he
claimed I wrote in one of my old newspaper columns
that I would shoot anyone who disagreed with me
over the war in Iraq. It was such a bizarre allegation
that I challenged him to show me where I had actual-
ly written such a threat. His response was that he
didn't have time to go back through the records to
find it, but he steadfastly clung to its existence. Of
course, no such threat was ever made in any column
I ever wrote, but when you are not constrained to
using facts, you can accuse anyone of anything.
His latest tirade against the Board of County
Commissioners is contained in a letter-writing and e-
mail campaign claiming the commission is breaking
the law when it approves any development that
increases traffic levels on A1A ("A1A traffic poses
'serious risk,'" Feb. 6). This concern is heightened
when it comes to a proposed commercial strip that
may be built within a stone's throw of his own resi-


the facts
dence.
As he usually does, Weintraub is enlisting well
intentioned, but underinformed, residents to join
him in labeling any commission action that doesn't
meet with his personal approval as "unlawful." His
latest e-mail states, "... the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE) has contacted the county
and is prepared to bring criminal charges against
county commissioners the next time the county
approves a development that adds traffic to a failed
section of AlA."
Now that's a very serious charge, if (the operable
word) it's true. After checking with county staff,
including the county attorney, I have been unable to
confirm any such statement or position originating
with FDLE. This means either FDLE saw fit to share
sensitive information of an ongoing investigation
with Weintraub, which no professional investigative
agency could ethically or legally do, or this thinly'
veiled threat against the county commission for
future decisions that might irritate Weintraub is
(how do I put this delicately) "untrue."
It is Weintraub's opinion that recent decisions by
the county commission that may increase traffic on
A1A have been illegal, and he has given everyone
from the governor on down his position. But in reali-
ty, that's all it is, "his opinion," and it doesn't match
the legal opinion of the county attorney, who has the
credentials and responsibility to guide the commis-
sion. Granted, our attorney is handicapped by having
to rely on facts, and not rumor or innuendo, but
that's why he's believable.
So the next time you receive or hear a complaint
from Weintraub or his minions alleging all sorts of
nefarious misdeeds by the commission, remember
anything can be claimed if you're not restricted to
the facts. As they say, "Consider the source."


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Boycott gougers
I've always been a proponent of supporting our
local businesses. After all, they were here for us when
we needed them. Until now.
We elected a new group of county commissioners
based partly on a promise to rescind the 5-cent gaso-
line tax. They did as promised but were not able to
make it effective until Jan. 1. This date has come and
gone but the gas stations in Hilliard have not dropped
their prices. Other locations in the county reflect the
decrease and their prices are more in line with other
counties. So my question to our local station owners
is why?
At some point, we must put our family and finances
first and get gas at any location outside of Hilliard
where it is more cost effective. We all drive to Duval,
Yulee, Fernandina Beach, etc., every day. Boycotting
price-gouging gas stations will be very easy and I, for
one, will be doing exactly that.

!:, ." At last oil is being drilled in the lower USA in Texas.
It was shown on TV recently with workers doing their
jobs.
Great! We need oil being drilled more in USA again
as in past years. This is the only way we will get gas
prices down again. Those who control oil purposely
stopped oil production in USA years ago.
There is an estimated 200-year supply of oil that was
drilled in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska that is "capped off'
not used to keep oil prices high. Let's get that oil
uncapped and out to USA to lower gas prices.
The oil cartel can be overcome if Americans will
write the White House and those we elect in congress
to get more oil again drilled in USA and out to the mar-
ket to lower our gas prices.
Just go to the post office and buy some post cards
and write.or type on them to get more oil drilled in USA
to lower costs at the gas pumps!
Your vote counts at more than this election cycle.
Also do not drive one day a week. That will gain
their attention as millions of us do not buy as much gas
nationwide. It will send a message. Spread the word
around the country! We have clout if we use it. Spread
the word to those you know nationwide.

'Golf Sierra Club Style'


POLITICS IN BRIEF


"Golf Sierra Club Style" is a Nassau Sierra
Club fundraiser to be held Saturday that
involves dropping numbered golf balls from
a helicopter onto the Bailey Road soccer
field. The three closest balls to a "hole" paint-
ed on the field will win cash prizes.
The closest ball will earn its "owner" 3 per-
cent of the gross donations for the event;
second closest will win 2 percent; and the
third closest golf ball's owner will collect 1
percent. It is estimated the event will attract
at least $5,000 in donations.
A donation to the Nassau Sierra Club of


$20 will "buy" one numbered golf ball. A $50
donation will get three numbered balls. An
$85 donation will get five numbered balls.
Tickets for the numbered golf balls can be
obtained at various merchants and locations,
including Amelia Home Health Care. A1A;
Amelia Island Golf on 14th Street; Amelia
Liquors; The Beach Shop on South Fletcher;

Just 85 miles north, a



fine neck of the woods


am a person who thinks in
terms of "threes," at least as
far as my in-box goes. It gen-
erally takes me three differ-
ent inputs, unconnected at first,
to draw my attention to the syn-
chronicities that evolve into my
columns. The threes converged
in the past couple of weeks, all
involving Harris Neck National
Wildlife Refuge.
'My story on the roosting site
for herons, egrets, ibis and
spoonbills at Marsh Lakes the
area along A1A designated for a
strip mall generated one of the
three. At least one endangered
wood stork at Marsh Lakes was
seen with official bands on its
legs (thanks, Pat Randa!) that
tracked it to Harris Neck
National Wildlife Reserve 85
miles north of us. Then, in a dou-
ble whammy, both Carls at Fort
Clinch State Park one a law
enforcement officer, one an expe-
rienced naturalist also individu-
ally told me about Harris Neck.
So, I had to go there.
On the next day we could,
Bucko and I traveled up to Harris
Neck, about a dozen miles north
of Darien, Ga., to see what we,
could see. The unfortunate fact of
continuous construction on 1-95
made the 85-mile drive a tortuous.
one for both of us, but once we
passed north of Darien and were
able to drive on US 17, our spirits
improved considerably. And,
when we got to Harris Neck, we
agreed that the drive was well
worth it.
Harris Neck NWR is a 2,824-
acre reserve with a number of
habitats in a coastal area much
like Amelia Island. Once heavily,
degraded habitat a former
World War II practice landing
field it now attracts thousands
of wintering ducks, a large colony
of breeding endangered wood
storks and numerous painted
buntings that are easy to spot
from 15 miles of paved roadways.
The key to this reserve's suc-
cess in attracting wildlife is that it
has been restored "for freshwater
biodiversity." Six manmade fresh-
water lakes and ponds cover 157
acres and are surrounded by
dikes to prevent saltwater intru-
sion. By creating freshwater
ponds where once only concrete
runways existed,-the National
Fish and Wildlife Service fias
made this place a paradise for
birds and for birders alike.
On our recent visit ducks
were in season, but not for
hunters hunting for birds.was


WILD WAYS


prohibited. It
was prime
season
instead-for
wild teal, gad-
walls, mal-
lards and
other winter-
ing ducks
along the
Atlantic fly-
way and
those who
like to watch
them.
Wherever
Bucko and I


looked, the freshwater ponds
were full of colorful ducks dip-
ping and dabbling in the muddy
ponds, seemingly oblivious to the
equal numbers of alligators float-
ing beside them. Every available
log was covered with freshwater
turtles or gators, and the small lit-
tle mud islands scattered
throughout the ponds provided
footing for egrets, herons and
ibises. While we snapped our
own photos, other nature photog-
raphers and wildlife viewers from
Europe, Canada and the U.S.
enjoyed the view as well. It was
great!
In spring and summer the
activity at Harris Neck turns
towards breeding. The ducks will
be gone and in their place will be
the breeding birds of our own cli-
mate, the herons and egrets and
ibis, and most excitingly of all,
the endangered wood storks and
the rare painted buntings. Wood
storks prefer to nest in trees with
alligator-infested freshwater sur-
rounding them, a great way to
keep raccoons from raiding their
nests.
Painted buntings need shrub-
by vegetation; freshwater marsh-
es and open fields provide an
ideal breeding habitat All of this
is at Harris Neck NWR, and all of
this could be here too.
As it is now on Amelia Island,
Fort Clinch park naturalist Carl
Watson directs people to drive up
to Harris Neck if they seriously
want to find painted buntings.
And although wood storks visit
the salt marshes here to feed,.
they do not breed here but they
are around, and could stay here if
we provide appropriate circum-
stance ,,,
' Our trashed Egans Creek
Greenway holds the key. If we
manage this island habitat that
we own with the right intentions
- to attract and protect a diversity
of wildlife species we could one

day soon have migratory ducks,
breeding wood storks and more
painted buntings right here on
Amelia Island. But if we just sit
back and let our Greenway turn
into salt marsh once again, we've
missed this chance forever.
I, for one, would appreciate
cutting another traffic-choked
170-mile round-trip drive out of
my life just to see the critters that
once were here on our island. I'd
rather watch renewed popula-
tions of them here instead. What
about you? If you agree, the time
is now to pressure our city offi-
cials to make this dream come
true.

MINOR INJURIES


POLICE REPORT


SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER
Rescue workers take passenger Centarris Young, 18, to the hospital where he-was treated and
released after an accident Thursday involving City Manager Michael Czymbor, who was not
hurt. The Nassau County Sheriff's Office cited Clint Douglas Armstrong, 23, of Fernandina
Beach, who was driving a 1998 Dodge north on South 14th Street when he turned left into the
path of Czymbor's city-owned 2006 Ford SUV. Estimated cost of repairing the vehicles is
$2,500 each.




Fire destroys house in Yulee


A house in Yulee was destroyed,
but no one was hurt in a Friday
night fire.
Nassau County Fire Rescue
responded to a conventional wood-
frame residential structure fire at
9:20 p.m. Upon arrival, crews
observed flames through the roof
of the home located in the 850000
block of US 17.
"I was in my house and heard
a loud 'pop' from outside so I went
outside and saw fire coming from
the roof of my son's house," said
William Moses. "My son and. his
wife were at my house and we tele-
phoned 911."


The 840-square-foot house was
built about 1950 and had a wood-
frame front porch, back porch and
side deck added to bring the total
square footage to 1,928.
"According to investigators, the.
fire appeared to have begun inside
the wall cavity above the fireplace
in the living room and the exact
cause of chimney fires is difficult to
determine," said Fire Chief Chuck
Cooper. "Winter heating is a major
cause of residential structure fires
and we recommend families have
your chimney/flue professionally
checked and cleaned before the
heating season."

"The residents will be staying
with family members," said Cooper.
"The American Red Cross was con-
tacted to meet with the family and
.assist with food and clothing."
There were no fire hydrants in
the area. Volunteers shuttled in
water tankers and pumpers and
delivered additional water and man-
power to the scene to assist coun-
.ty fire crews.
Fire investigators have deter-
mined the fire was not intentional-
ly set. Improper annual mainte-
nance may have led to a breach in
the mortar joints 'that allowed hot
ash or embers to escape into the
wall cavity. A chimney should be
equipped with easy access to
inspect the flue, whether metal or
masonry, and to dean the creosote,
they said.
Fire officials estimated $57,000
damage to the structure and con-
tents.

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-

Attempted break-in
Fernandina Beach Police have
stepped up patrols in the Old Town
area after a woman reported an
attempted break-in at her White
Street home on Saturday.
The woman contacted police
about 8 p.m. to report the burgla-
ry; she left the home with her six-
year-old daughter. When police
arrived they found no one inside
and did not see anyone suspicious
in the area, but one of the doors to
the house appeared to have been
tampered with.
The victim said she heard the
screen door and "what sounded
like someone pushing on the west
door of the residence," according
to a police report.
Police believe someone tried
to enter the home through that
door but was unsuccessful.

Clemens has

everything to

lose ifhe's lying
ajor League
S Baseball star
S pitcher Roger
S V Clemens emphati-
cally denies his former train-
er's claims that he injected
him with steroids and human
growth hormone several times
between 1998 and 2001. The
trainer, Brian McNamee,
reportedly told former senator
George Mitchell that he inject-
ed Clemens at least 16 times
over the span and has since
produced hypodermic needles
and vials to back his claim.
Instinct tells me that
Clemens had to have some
help to be able to dominate
the game so late in his career.
I mean, a lot of 40-year-old
guys have to fight through ail-
ments just to mow the lawn,
much less mow down 21-year-
old power hitters.
But common sense says
Clemens must be telling the
truth. Because if he sticks to
his story and it's eventually
proved that he did use per-
formance-enhancing drugs, he
will be convicted of perjury.
The guy seemingly has every-
thing to lose.

But common sense
says Clemens must
be telling the truth.

I don't know anything
about McNamee, so I'm
inclined to believe Clemens,
who has been on my television
and in my newspaper for more
than two decades. On the
other hand, if Clemens is
lying, he should earn a spot in
the "asterisk hall of fame,"
right next to Barry Bonds...
The University of Florida
basketball team can thank its
predecessors for the blowout
losses to Arkansas and
Tennessee last week. Because
while the "Oh-Fours" -
Joakim Noah, Al Horford,
Corey Brewer and Taurean
Green are not present in
body, their two-year national
championship run is giving
opposing coaches all the lock-
erroom fodder they need to
inspire their teams against the
Gators.
Though the current group
of Florida players had very lit-
tle to do with the hardware in
the trophy case, they are wear-
ing the target that comes after
such a successful run. Having
a roster made up of five fresh-
men, three sophomores and a
junior is explanation enough
for Tennessee knocking down
13 three-point shots in
Knoxville last week.
Bearing the title,
"Defending National
Champion Florida Gators" is
an awfully big onus for such a
young group ...
Surely you've heard the
story by now about Kevin
Hart, the high school offen-
sive lineman from Nevada who
rigged his own college football
recruitment and had everyone
believing that Cal and Oregon
were battling for his services.
Hart even suckered the local
media by having them show
up to his high school gymnasi-
um, where he broke the
hearts of Oregon fans every-
where when he picked Cal.
Problem was, neither
Oregon nor Cal were recruit-
ing him. Hart finagled his 15
minutes of fame by convincing
everyone, apparently includ-
ing his high school football
coach, that he was a top col-
lege football prospect, when
he probably wasn't even on
the junior college radar. Good
for him. It's about time some-
one made a mockery, albeit
unintentionally, of the over-
hyped college football recruit-
ing process...
OK, New England fans, I
was wrong. Bill Belichick did
in fact congratulate Tom
Coughlin with one second left

Ramsay is football


coach at Yulee High


BETH JONES
News-Leader
When the Yulee Hornets hit the
gridiron for their third season this
fall, they'll do so with a new coach.
Bobby Ramsay, 28, was chosen
last week as the new head football
coach at Yulee High School and
replaces George Nelson, who left
after his second season with the
Hornets and was recently named
head coach at West Nassau High
School.
Ramsay met with the Hornet
players on Monday.
"We're going to have a lot of
fun together," Ramsay told them.
"We're going forward so just get
ready. Great things are coming."
Ramsay told the players Mon-
day he also wants to get them to
the next level.
"I'll do everything I can to give
you an opportunity to play in col-
lege," Ramsay said. "I feel like that'
is a responsibility of mine. I will
go to bat for you. I promise you
that."
Ramsay was one of 55 appli-
cants for the head coaching job at
Yulee. A search committee nar-
rowed the field to just 10 and eight
were eventually interviewed. Score
sheets for the top three were
turned over to principal Diane
Romon, who made the final deci-
sion.
"This is our choice," Romon
told the players. 'We had a lot of
applicants and choices. He's exact-
ly what Yulee High School needs to
continue the foundation that start-
ed with Coach Nelson.
"You get the ball rolling and
then you pass the ball on to some-
body else. Now, the ball is being
placed to Coach Ramsay to really
take our football team and our pro-
gram to the level that it needs to go
to."
Romon said the process was
grueling and the committee dedi-
cated many hours to finding the
right coach for YHS.
"We got you the best football
coach that we could possibly find
for Yulee High School," Romon
said. "It's up to you guys now ...
the sky's the limit.
"We've just broken ground.
We've only just begun. We're only
a year and a half old, guys. You
have a great future in front of you."
It is Ramsay's first head foot-
ball coaching position. He spent
three years as the defensive line
coach at First Coast High School.
He also spent a season with Lincoln
High School in Tallahassee, and
the Trojans went on to capture the
state title. Afterwards, Ramsay
logged time with Trinity University
in San Antonio, Texas.
"We went to the national cham-
pionship in division three my first


year," Ramsay said.
"I know my length of time isn't
long but I feel good about the three
places I've been. I'd rather have
the seven years of the experience
m I've had than 15
or 16 years of just
sort of so-soish
experience."
Ramsay was a
defensive line-
man in high
school and col-
lege in Texas and
has coached the
Ramsay DL since.
"I will coach
the defense as a
coordinator the first year and then
we'll go from there," he said. But
offensive players shouldn't worry.
"We have to score points. They
don't need to worry."
"We're going to have growing
pains," said Donna Jackson, ath-
letic director at Yulee High School.
"But the changes in the program
are going to show on the field.
Wins will come."
Ramsay isn't necessarily a new-
comer to Nassau County.
"We used to come to Fernan-
dina Beach when I was little,"
Ramsay said. His parents retired to
Amelia Island.
"When I came out here, I heard
the school was opening. I thought
that would be great if I could coach
there," Ramsay said. "Ifs a smaller
school. I kind of value that. It's a lit-
tle more personal type deal for me.
I have quite a bit of family in this
area. That was big.
"It's new. You always want to
be in on the ground floor. I just
thought it would be a great oppor-
tunity. When I heard the job came
open, I e-mailed resumes three
times."
He interviewed in January.
"I heard good things but I did-
n't know for sure," Ramsay said.
He got the call last week.
"I was excited about it," Ramsay
said. "I really think it's a great
opportunity to come in and com-
pete in the district.
"I want to get the kids fired up
and proud to be football players
here. It's difficult and they should
feel good."
He said his first priority is build-
ing relationships with his new
team.
"They're going to definitely get
here's how things are going to be
and walk the line," he said.
"They're going to have a regi-
mented program year round.
"I think kids like structure and
I'm going to give them as much
structure as possible. I have a lot of
fun things planned for them too. I
think ultimately the most fun is

Ramsay is used to winning. He

"That's what I want to happen,

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13,2008 SPORTS NEws-LEADER


Lovejoy individual winner in blitz


BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
Cole Watson, 13, a beginner golfer, tries the new junior tees
on the north course of the Fernandina Beach Golf Club while
his father, Joe, watches.



Juniors get their



own set of golf tees


There is great news for begin-
ner and junior golfers in Fernan-
dina Beach and surrounding areas.
A kinder, more gentler way to enjoy
golf 'and learn the game has
arrived. The north course of the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club will
be the first nine to host the junior
tees. Holes will range from the 326-
yard par-five No. 2 to a 90-yard par-
3 No. 8.
"This is a great way for kids to
break into the game," said W. Scott
Womble, director of golf at the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club.
"There is an intimidation factor of
juniors standing on the tee of a
long par four. It looks easy for the
seasoned golfer, but for the junior,
the same hole -may look miles away.
Womble said he has noticed a
pleasant increase in the number
of juniors playing at the course in
the last two years.
"Hopefully, we are growing the
game for future golfers," Womble
said. "I have noticed while teaching
golf to kids they are more com-
fortable in hitting shots more in
line with their own ability.
"Kids are not stressed to swing
hard so they may play within them-
selves, thus the juniors learn more


and enjoy the game. ,.
"It is a struggle for most kids to
try to hit four to five shots to get to
the green from the women's tees.
Kids become frustrated and try to
hit the ball too hard.
"Juniors benefit from the tees in
feeling more relaxed on holes
where they can score just like their
parents."
Tournaments this summer with
the FBGC Junior Golf Association
will be played from these tees.
Once the junior becomes com-
fortable and advances their skill,
they will graduate to the next set of
tees, Womble said.
Womble said parents are
encouraged to use the north
course for the junior play. ..
"This is great way for parents to
spend some quality time with kids,"
Womble said. "Remember, golf is a
game for a lifetime and memories
start here."
Junior scorecard, par 36: Holes
1 and 2, par 5; hole 3, par 3; holes
4, 5, 6 and 7, par 4; hole 8, par 3;
and hole 9, par 4. Yardage per hole
,220, 326, 100, 225, 190, 235, 205, 90,
206, respectively, for 1,797 total.
For information, call the golf
course at 277-7370.


Yulee Tennis Foundation con-
ducted a tennis clinic at Hilliard
Middle-Senior High School
Saturday for team members and
coaches. The clinic, which lasted
three hours, included a couple of
Yulee players, Josh Hopper and
Trevor Holden, who made the
trip to take part. The event was
beneficial to coaches, who had-a
first-hand look in the running of
their respective practice and how
to make simple corrections in
their players' games:
The activity on the Yulee ten-
nis ladder has been slowed by -
the fact that the high schools are
busy with their own challenge
matches. The foundation is cur-
rently arranging a clinic at Yulee
High School to fine tune their
players for the upcoming season.
The ladder participants will be
invited so as to play some prac-
tice matches against the squad.
Coaches of the four Nassau
County tennis teams can register
their schools for the Florida High
School no-cut program. This pro-
gram benefits the teams as well
as the schools. Visit the USTA
website Florida Section/Nassau
County for information. If you
would like to volunteer to hit with
the kids you will have to fill out a
volunteer form and be cleared by
the school board. For help with
this, contact Karen Turner,
Tennis, in Schools director,


through the Yulee Tennis
Foundation. E-mail davejudi@bell
south.net and reference tennis.
The Yulee Tennis Foundation
has been asked to again host the
Publix Family Day April 8 during,
the Bausch & Lomb tournament
at Amelia Island Plantation. The
Family Day program will intro-
duce quick start and cardio ten-
nis. Further information will be
in this section as well as informa-
tion on volunteering for the tour-
nament and ballkids tryouts.
Director of Tennis.Vishnu
Maharaj continues his lbrograms
to promote and teach tennis
through ladder play for youth,
training for tournament competi-
tion and weekly private and
group lessons. Contact him
through the website,
www.yuleetennisfoundation.com,
or call him at 548-1472 or 524-
0243 (cell).
The mission of the Yulee
Tennis Foundation is to promote
the sport of tennis throughout
Nassau County. If you have any
information and would like to add

uled for Feb. 16-18 at Queen's
Harbour in Jacksonville in which
the Yulee Tennis Foundation
plans to have players test their
skills against other players from
around the state.


GOLF NEWS
When the weather is good,
golfers turn out in numbers to
take part in the blitz. Last
Wednesday there were 69 play-
ers and 77 took part in the
Friday blitz. On Wednesday, indi-
vidual honors went to Mike
Lovejoy, who had a 78 and plus
10 points. Fred Boatright (75)
was second at plus 8 while John
Bray (78) came in third at plus
7.
Lovejoy's plus 10 received
help from Mike Dowling (94,
plus 3) and Michael Kaufman
(90, plus 1) to offset the minus 4
of Doug Morris (98) to enable
the team to finish first at plus 10.
Another minus 4 made it on a
winning team as Jim Roberts
(76, plus 5), Larry Luett (85, plus
2), Dick Peterson (100, plus 4)
anid Kevin Lynn (106, minus 4)
finished second at plus 7.
Yet another minus 4 made it
as the five-man team of D.D.
Miller (100, plus 2), Gerald
Wilder 1(91, plus 1), Lynn
Satterwhite (88, plus 5), Stan
Miller (92, even) and Woody
Kallas (92, minus 4) came in
third at plus 4.
Boatright's plus 8 did not
receive any help from Tommy
Shave (79, minus 3), Dave
Mason 83, minus 2) and Tom
Gray (84, even) as his team tied
with the team of Bray (plus 7),
who got just enough help from
Sammy Alvarez (82, plus 1) to
offset Charles Benefield (98,
minus 3) and Peter Dietz (96,
minus 2) as the teams finished in
fourth place at plus 3.
On Friday it was Steve
Bernhard, who seems to have a
very good round at least once a
month, who shot an 84, good for
plus 10 points and individual
honors but did not end up on a
winning team. Tom Roberts had
an 83 and plus 9 for second while
D.D. Miller had a 90 and plus 8
for third.
The all-plus team of Bill Abee
(83, plus 6), Jim Roberts (79,
plus 5), Dick Peterson (98, plus
1) and Lind Swenson (86, plus 1)
won first place teamwise at plus
13.
Rarely does a plus 10 fail to
place on a winning team but it is
also unusual for five teams to tie
for the remaining winning
places. But it happened Friday.
Two all-plus teams led the way:
Sammy Alvarez (77, plus 3),
Tony Lopez (82, plus 1), Bob
Sibley (80, plus 3), Abjorn Tefre
(89, plus 2) and Tom Gray (83,
plus 1), Harry Kegler (89, plus

three-shot lead in regulation, making four bogeys in a seven-hole
stretch, before tying Lowery with a birdie at the 18th to force the play-
off. Lowery won with a textbook birdie at Pebble Beach's picturesque
closing hole: a drive down the middle of the fairway, a layup 75 yards short of the
green, and a pitch shot over the flag to seven feet. After Singh had rolled in his par
putt, Lowery calmly flushed his birdie try into the middle of the cup for the victory.


One of the most difficult things for
the amateur golfer to adjust to is
the long putt on the green. Long
putting is a skill that is rarely prac-
ticed and, consequently, whenev-
er we have a very long putt to
-,' attempt, the end result is usually
not what we want. Most amatuers faced with a
long putt automatically go into the thought
process that they need to smack the ball to get
it to the hole. This thinking pattern will get you a
three-putt more times than not. When you try to
kill the putt, all of the motion in your putting
stroke comes frbm the wrist. The ball usually
pops up off the ground and there is little to no
chance for success. A long putting stroke needs
to be generated by the shoulders with nothing to
do with your wrists.

OUTDOORS





Big boats and



motors at show ;


t was quite evident at last
week's Jacksonville Boat
Show that big boats and
motors were a hot ticket.
Chelsea Marine displayed a 33-
foot Palmetto center console fish-
ing boat, which was powered by
a massive pair of 300-horse
power Mercury, Verado out-
boards. Word has it that
Mercury Marine has more
horsepower for their outboards,
which will soon be available for
both pleasure and fishing boats.
There was also a 35-foot
Donzi at the show with triple 350-
HP Yamaha outboards.
"I just had to get out of com-
petitive king fishing," -
Jacksonville's Wendell Nolan
said. "During the recent Key.
West Hog's .Breath king macker-
el tournament, our kingfish boat
burned 300 gallons of fuel. At
$3.50 per gallon, you can expect
to pay at least $1,000 for fuel at
many of the competitive kingfish
tournaments."
Nolan is now competing on
the competitive redfish tour with
smaller boats and smaller fuel
cells.
On the other hand, boat deal-
ers are reportedly saying big
boats with lots of horsepower are
selling well. Medium size boat
sales are slow.
Judging by the size of the
crowds during all three days of
the 2008 Jacksonville Boat Show,
there were a lot of fishermen and
pleasure boaters interested in
purchasing new boats and
marine-related products. The
weatherman cooperated as well,
with picture perfect weather.
During early February, the
weather can be absolutely miser-
able with temperatures in the
low 50s and northerly winds
blowing up to 25 miles per hour.
Shallow water fishermen
were able to inspect a wide vari-
ety of backcountry fishing boats,
including newly designed
Sterling 2200 XS bay boat.


"We have
redesigned
the Sterling
2200 XS with
b better stor-
age com-
.- apartments,
-. ./ two live well
S systems, a
Sf shallower
Terry Lacoss draft and

rough bays,"
Sterling's John Garrison said.
The Sterling 2200 XS looks
like ifs going fast just sitting on
the boat trailer. Garrison's per-
sonal Sterling 2200 XS is pow-
ered with a Mercury XS 300-HP
outboard and, when fully loaded,
will run in the mid 70 mile per
hour range. The hull is con-
structed of a combination of
composite and kevlar materials
and weighs 1,600 pounds.
Triton's new 18-foot X2 com-
bination backcountry and bass
boat was also showcased at the
boat show. Rigged with a
Mercury 150-horsepower out-
board and sitting on a galvanized
trailer, the boat was ready to fish
and listed for just over $27,000.
Out of all the boats that I looked
at during the show, this was defi-
nitely the best buy. The 18-foot
TritQn had a fiberglass deck for
saltwater fishing, giving fisher-
men the option of fishing in fresh
or saltwater. The newly designed
Triton also had the 54-gallon fuel
cell relocated towards the bow of
the boat for a better ride in
rough water, faster planing and
for a shallower draft as well.
One thing that was quite evi-
dent at the Jacksonville Boat
Show is boat manufacturers are
building boats today that are
lighter, more fuel efficient with
better storage. and newly
designed hulls that offer a much
better ride. Outboard motor
manufacturers are now offering


Sterling's new 2200 XS bay boat weighs 1,600 pounds and
drafts 11-12 inches of water, below. Left, Palmetto's 33-foot
center console fishing boat offers a hard top and electronics
that are raised and lowered from the console with a flip of a
switch. You will see plenty of high-powered fishing boats dur-
ing the 2008 fishing season, including this 35-foot Triton cen-
ter console fishing boat powered by triple 275-HP Mercury
Verado outboards.
PHOTOS BY TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL


big horsepower outboards that
are also very fuel-efficient.
However, 'if you do decide to pur-
chase a pleasure or fishing boat
with an outboard motor that has
275 horsepower or more, you
may be required to burn high-


octane fuel. This could mean a
difference of 30-50 cents per gal-
lon at the fuel pump.
Be prepared. Many of the
boats showcased at the
Jacksonville Boat Show were dis-
played without electronics. If you


are purchasing a fairly large
boat, the options for your elec-
tronic choices could be huge and
quite expensive.
Boaters will need a depth find-
er and marine radio to start off.
Other options include radar,


color fish finders, fuel monitors
and, for your relaxation, stereo-
systems.
If you need your wife's
approval when purchasing that
new boat, make sure it is rigged
with a port-a-potty or full head.

Clean boat challenge
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 urging all
recreational boaters who trailer
their vessels to take the League's
"Clean Boats Challenge."
The challenge is a quiz at
www.CleanBoats.org that edu-
cates boaters and anglers on how
to inspect and clean their boats
Sto 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.
In addition to the short and
easy-to-complete Clean Water
Challenge, the website also
includes information on how to
clean a boat properly and some
tips for trailer boaters. For exam-
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 boat video 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 Aquatic Hitchhikers
Pledge."
The Izaak Walton League is
one of the nation's oldest and
most respected conservation
organizations with a grass-roots
network of more than 40,000
members and more than 300
local chapters across the U.S.
The BoatU.S. Foundation for
Boating Safety and Clean Water
is a national 501(c) (3) education-
al and research organization that
operates more than a dozen pro-
grams, including the only accred-
ited, free, online general boating,
safety course, a low-cost EPIRB
rental program, the "Help Stop
the Drops" national clean fueling
campaign, a free kid's Life Jacket
Loaner Program, and has award-
ed hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars in grants for nonprofit
groups for boating safety and
environmental projects.

Hurricane symposium
The 2008 Marina Hurricane
Preparation Symposium will be
March 4 and 5 in Orlando. A
hands-on look at reducing the
impact of future hurricanes, this
two-day symposium will give par-
ticipants the tools they need to
weather the next hurricane, min-
imize damage and successfully
recover.
If you thought 2007 was a
"quiet" hurricane season, think
again. For the first time since
hurricanes have been recorded,
there were two category five hur-
ricanes that came ashore in the
same season, both in the sparse-
ly populated Yucatan Peninsula.
National Weather Service pre-
dictions say that increased hurri-
cane activity will continue for the
foreseeable future. If you are
responsible for protecting a facili-
ty a marina, boatyard, yacht
club or harbor this conference
will show you how. It's a critical
topic for any facility operator in
the hurricane belt from Texas.
and the Gulf states all of the way
up the Atlantic Seaboard.
Symposium goals:
To help develop a hurricane
plan that gives your facility the
best chance to survive a storm.
Learn preparation tech-
niques from your peers that have
worked well at other facilities.
Take a look at what "storm-
hardened" marinas will look like
in the future.
Learn what is within your
legal rights for preparing boats
for hurricanes.
Discuss techniques that will
get maximum effort from your
staff and boat owners.
Get your questions
answered and discuss ideas.
See exhibits of the latest in
state-of-the-art hurricane prepa-
ration and damage miogation
products.
The event is sponsored by
Boat Owners Association of The
United States ir conjunction with
the Association of Marina
Industries, Marine Industries
Association of Florida and
Marine Industries Association of
South Florida.
The symposium will be held
March 4-5 at the Rosen Plaza
Hotel in Orlando. Visit

their work ethic. They are the epitome of what we've
been saying about Pirate wrestling all year. These
two are real-life examples to all of our wrestlers in that
no one gives you success; you have to earn it and that
is exactly what Donnie and Jack did all year. They and
we will take this lesson with us far beyond the
wrestling mat. We really think they have a good shot
at state because we believe this is one of if not the hard-
est regionals for 1A."
Both are seniors.
"Our other seniors, Chris Kremler, Chad
Livingston, Mitch Haley, Kyle Owens and Kevin
McEntee, came up a little short on Saturday," Durr
said. "These guys have nothing to be down about.
They all had everything to do with our success this
year. They might regret not making it to state, but they
should have no regrets for how they wrestled at
regionals. They all wrestled to win and left it all on the
mat. We could not ask for more out of these young
men and couldn't be prouder of them either.
"Chris Kremler had the match of the weekend.
Chris, who is barely 215 pounds and 6-foot tall, wres-
tled the biggest wrestler any of us had ever seen.
The Fort White heavyweight was 286 pounds and
was 6-foot-6. Chris went after this guy and they fought
for 5 minutes and 49 seconds before pinning him in
the last 10 seconds of the match.
"We didn't know what made a louder sound, the fall
of the Goliath hitting the ground or the roar of the
crowd as Chris was working for the pin. It was incred-
ible. Everyone at the tournament talked about this
match the rest of the weekend. I couldn't have been
more proud of Chris at that moment or more proud
of being part of Pirate wrestling."
Yulee High School had six wrestlers in the region
tournament, but none advanced to state.
"James Blocker (103) missed lots of practice and
school the week leading up to the regional meet with
the flu," YHS Coach Michael Carty said. "James went
1-2 at the tournament, never really wrestling like him-
self. It was absolutely heart-wrenching to see such a
great kid end his wrestling career under such cir-
cumstances. Under normal conditions, he'd be toeing
it up at Lakeland. James is a driven and classy young
man, a great ambassador for Yulee athletics."
George Shepard went 3-2 at 112 pounds.
"George lost early to the eventual second-place
wrestler from Baker County, then battled back through

the consolation rounds," Carty said. "He looked to be
on his way to the state meet after a 15-0 technical fall
over Gabriel Holley of Menendez that advanced him
to the consolation semifinals. He had a win-and-you're-
in match against Clay's district champ, Kyle Taylor
(who won'narrowly against Holley). The match was
tight in the second period, when Taylor hit a headlock
on George that finished the match."
Shepard finished the season with a 32-5 record.
Josh Dennis went 2-2 at 135 pounds.
"Josh had arguably the toughest weight class and
possibly the worst draw of pairings in that weight,"
Carty said. "Finishing 2-2 under those conditions was
admirable. He 16st to previous state qualifier, Jarred
Hoover of St. Augustine, in the wrestlebacks on
Saturday. He did collect two falls for us."
Seth Bodine lost two matches at 140.
"Seth met the tournament champ in round one,"
Carty said. "He was competitive in his next match, but
lost trying to execute a risky move. Seth has shown
great improvement and will be one of dur many
strong returners next year."
At 160 pounds, Chris Martinez went 1-2.
"Chris lost by fall to fourth-place finisher Shane
Dennis of Matanzas in round one," Carty said. "He
pinned his first wrestleback opponent from Arnold
before losing again at the hands of a Suwannee foe.
Chris is just a freshman, so he has the ability to real-
ly flourish in the coming years."
Austin Turbeville (285) lost by pin to Juwayne
Tanner of South Walton and and then to a Menendez
wrestler in the second round of wrestlebacks.
"We were hoping to compete at Lakeland this year
and Wse fell short of that goal," Carty said. "We won't
next year. Our kids are already asking when they can
start training again, so I guess next year starts now."

Valentine's Day is supposed to be a
day of love, but more often than
not it is a day of guilt. One day out
of the year and you had better
remember that someone special or else you
pay. In the weeks and days leading up to
the celebration, folks get their red out.
Bright shirts and sweaters greet us as we
go about our busy lives. Heart-shaped jew-
elry is the choice of many.
Valentine's Day is an odd holiday con-
sidering its origins. Most know the celebra-
tory day was named for St. Valentine, sug-
gesting a Christian connection. Pre-dating
St. Valentine, the mid-February event was a
pagan celebration of a young man's rite of
passage. !
The celebration featured a lottery in
which young men would draw the names of
teenage girls from a box. The girl assigned
to each young man would be his sexual
companion the rest of the year.


Pope Gelasius,
clever pope that he
was, decided to
.,, change the rules and
S, ordered a slight
change in the lot-
tery. Instead of the
names of young
A women, the box con-
t stained the names of
saints. Both men and
women were allowed
Dickie Anderson to draw from the
---... box, and the game
was to emulate the
FROM THE ways of the saint
PORCH they drew during the
rest of the year. Kind
of a 15th century charades. Needless to
say, many of the young Roman men were
not too pleased with the rule changes.
The church looked for a suitable patron


saint of love to represent its new holiday. It
found a perfect candidate Valentine, who,
in A.D. 270, had been beheaded by
Emperor Claudius. The evil emperor
banned marriage because he was con-
vinced married men made bad soldiers.
Valentine secretly married young men and
women that came to him. When Claudius
found out, he first tried to convert
Valentine to paganism. But Valentine
reversed the strategy, trying instead to con-
vert Claudius. When he failed, he was
stoned and beheaded.
During the days that Valentine was
imprisoned, he fell in love with the blind
daughter of his jailer. His love for her, and
his great faith, managed to miraculously
heal her from her blindness. Before he was
taken to his death, he signed a farewell
message to her, "From your Valentine."
The phrase clearly stuck. So Valentine
became a martyr in the name of love and


earned himself his very own holiday.
It is hard to miss Valentine's Day. We
see red everywhere we go and are remind-
ed that we must not forget our Valentine
sweetheart. It is nice to know that there is a
day once a year when we can stop and
remember what a difference love makes in
our lives.
There are lots of ways to say I love you
without spending lots of money on cards,
jewelry, flowers or candy. Best of all, don't
wait until Valentine's Day. Sometimes the
unexpected bouquet of flowers or a love
note is the best Valentine.
Showing your love should not be just
one day it should be every day in little
ways, but never forget Valentine's Day. It is
definitely a red-letter day!
Dickie Anderson welcomes your com-
ments at dickie@dickieanderson.com. Books
are available at local book and gift stores or
on line at www.dickieanderson.com..

NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY


Hi! My name is Mandy, a
long-haired kitty around 2
years old. I came to the shel-
ter with 3 kittens that are
currently in foster care. I
was so happy we were
brought to the Nassau
Humane Society and given
all the TLC we needed after
living in the cold of the
streets. I know I will find a
forever home and my kids
will too! Come by and see
me! My adoption fee is $85,
which covers my spay,
rabies, current tests and vac-
cinations.
My name is Crissy and I
was brought to the shelter
the day after Christmas with
a broken leg. I am respond-
ing well to treatment. I am
quite a character, 'love my
people, but would do best in
a home where I would be the
only furry princess. The peo-
ple who take care of me tell
me I need a little more time
before being permanently
adopted, but would do great
in a foster home so I can
continue taking care of my
leg! Our dog adoption fee is
$100, which covers
spay/neuter, rabies, current
testing, vaccines and a
microchip.
Many wonderful pets are
available for adoption at the
