of Nassau County Animal Services,
said Sheriff Tommy Seagraves, who

whole list of qualifications," but said he

was unable to fax or e-mail those to the

New phone numbers

save county money

News Leader
Several Nassau County depart-
ments now have new telephone num-
bers. The change comes as a result of
changing from AT&T to an in-house
phone service, said Technical Services
Director MarkJohnson.
"We're moving off of the AT&T sys-
tem and going onto our own system.
It's a huge cost-saving measure. It basi-
cally upgrades performance at lesser
cost," Johnson said. "We actually
moved about 50 telephone numbers,

City to explore privatizing marina

Dense fog hangs over the city marina on the Amelia River waterfront Tuesday, looking south from the deck at Brett's Waterway Caf6.

City won't return federal marina grant

News Leader
In spite of some bad memories
from two decades ago, Fernandina
Beach Commissioners agreed
Wednesday to look into the possibil-
ity of leasing the city marina to a pri-
vate operator.
Commissioners also agreed, in
general, that it would be a mistake to
give back a grant that the city
received in 2006 to make improve-
ments for transient boaters. The
Waterfronts Florida Partnership
recently suggested the city should
take another look at the BigP grant
and its requirements, but according
to Patricia Harrell of the Florida Fish
& Wildlife Commission, which admin-
isters the grant, the city would have
to pay back $800,000.
Commissioner Ron Sapp remind-
ed that the city's leasing the marina
to a private operator in the 1980s had
been a disaster for the city. "(The city
marina) was losing $18,000 to $20,000
a year," he said. "We looked at leasing

Cruise ship terminal worth

$400 million, study says

Community Newspapers
An economic study sponsored by
the University of North Florida deter-
mined that a cruise terminal at
Mayport fishing village would have
more than a $400 million impact on the
local economy in its first six years.
After receiving the report at a meet-
ing Monday, Jaxport's board author-
ized staff to solicit quotes for the
design and construction of a cruise
terminal in the Mayport area.
According to port officials, the deci-
sion to move ahead will allow the
board to refine initial estimates to let
the board know exactly how much it
will cost to build a cruise terminal.
Port board members will still have
to vote on whether or not to proceed
with actual design and construction
at a future board meeting.
That vote could be contingent on
the Jacksonville City Council approv-
ing rezoning of property in Mayport.
In addition, Mayport residents and
others opposed to the cruise ship oper-

ation have filed a lawsuit to block ships
from using the village.
If a cruise terminal were not to be
approved for Mayport, it is possible
that Jaxport could consider Amelia
Island, where some Fernandina Beach
city officials have encouraged the
Jacksonville Councilman Art
Graham, who represents much of the
county's beaches on the county board,
said a vote on the zoning decision will
not be this week. He also said that he
believes that a workable arrangement
is possible, but "what we have cur-
rently on the table won't work." I think
that this going to a legal battle will
drag this out and probably kill it,"
Graham said Tuesday.
At the Jaxport meeting, three
PowerPoint presentations detailed the
cruise ship industry and economic
impacts. The presentations included
information on a new terminal; the
cruise market outlook and potential in

Church for arts

study suggested

News Leader
The Fernandina Beach Arts Council has called for an addi-
tional study of the former First Baptist Church downtown as
a performing arts center.
The former sanctuary at Fifth and Alachua streets is
being considered for a multi-function space for special events
in the city. Its purchase could be part of a plan that includes
moving City Hall to the downtown post office and con-
struction of a new library.
According to an e-mail from staff coordinator Scott
Mikelson to recreation director Nan Voit, the city arts coun-
cil needs $2,000 for architectural consultant Surber, Barber,
Choate & Hertlein to make floor plan sketches for the proj-
ect. It was also suggested that the architectural firm use a

officer Gil Mixson. "They didn't
give me a reason, neither one,"
said Seagraves. "We all have our
speculations, but that would be
just speculation," he said, refer-
ring to rumors that they could
not work with Vitale. "If it's her,
I'd like to know why it's her," the
sheriff said.
According to the Florida
Animal Control Association,
Vitale took an Animal Control
Officer exam in October. Its
website also shows she took a
chemical immobilization class
last July. However, John Mays of
the National Animal Control
Association said, "We have no
record of anyone by that name
as attending a NACA certifica-
tion course."
Vitale will be handling the
"day-to-day operations" at the
shelter and a person named
"B.J." will work on training per-
sonnel, the sheriff said.
"She's just there temporari-
ly," Seagraves said of Vitale,
whose husband, Larry, donated
$300 to the sheriff's reelection
campaign. Seagraves said a
national search is on for a new
director and he hopes to have a
qualified person in place within
60 days. Sunday is the cutoff
date for applicants.
"Hopefully we will have a fast
response," he said.
As for how much Vitale will
be paid, Seagraves said "we're
still working on that - I think
she's wanting it to go to her res-

comprehensive feasibility study
done in June 2007 to "help with
the visualization."
An e-mail from Thomas E
Little of Surber, Barber, Choate
& Hertlein to City Manager
Michael Czymbor indicates the
firm has proposed up to six floor
plan sketches of the sanctuary
space, plus sectional sketches,
a conceptual scope of the work,
electronic copies and a cost esti-
The Atlanta-based firm is
asking for a base fee "not to
exceed $2,400," plus up to $900
for travel expenses.
'"To assist with this effort,"
writes Little, "we are able to use
our earlier research, including
existing drawings and photo-
graphs, to study how the sanc-
tuary, and in particular, a recon-

cue groups and we're trying to
determine whether legally we
can do that." Barnes' salary was
about $60,000 a year.
In the past Vitale has said
she was with Adopt a Rescued
Kitty Inc., based in Neptune
Beach, and its "rescued dog
division," Animals In Need USA
The former is registered as a
charitable organization with the
IRS and the Florida Division of
Consumer Services.
Edith Alcorn, listed as the
director of Adopt a Rescued
Kitty Inc., was investigated by
Neptune Beach Police and
Jacksonville Animal Care and
Control in July 2006 after
"dozens and dozens" of cats
were found in her home along
with stacks of canned cat food,
empty litter boxes and other
items stored outside.
Neighbors reported the sit-
uation to law enforcement when
the odor of cat waste could be
detected three houses away,
according to news reports at
the time. Police estimated up to
100 cats may have been in the
house, and said while there did
not appear to be cruelty to the
animals, the environment was a
health hazard to humans.
Alcorn was ordered to relocate
the cats and clean up the prop-
erty or face possible demolition
of the building.
Gay Lou Rutledge, a neigh-
bor in the same 300 block of
Oceanwood Drive as Alcorn,
said the problem was cleared
up and since it was resolved,

figured altar and stage area
might serve a variety of per-
formance types."
According to an e-mail from
Czymbor, the additional work
by the architectural firm will
not require city commission
approval because the Arts
Council has already received a
$5,000 appropriation from the
city in this fiscal year. The coun-
cil, says Czymbor, will have to
decide whether it wants to pay
for the architectural firm's pro-
posal for the additional work.
Surber, Barber, Choate &
Hertlein was hired in 2007 by
Friends of the Library,
Fernandina Beach, to conduct a
$50,000 feasibility study of the
"civic relocation project" for
downtown, which included the
First Baptist Church, the down-
town post office, City Hall and
the Fernandina Beach branch

"it's pretty much stayed the
same." She said Alcorn does
not live at the house, but "she's
there off and on" to tend to the
cats still living there.
Meanwhile, Barnes, who
was hired by Seagraves last
April from Alachua County
Animal Control, has accepted a
position as a corrections officer
at the Nassau County Jail, and a
pay cut of more than $30,000.

worker, but leadership abilities
... I think he was lacking in that,"
said Seagraves.
As for the future of Nassau
County Animal Services, which
suffered from years of mis-
management and lack of fund-
ing under the county's control
and was transferred to the sher-
iff's department by the county
commission last April,
Seagraves said he is "still on
board for right now."
"It assumes a good amount
of my time," he said, and admit-
ted that at times he has been
ready to hand the job back to
the county. "I've had some days
where I just about did. But I
just remember the purpose
for why we took it over. As it
stands today, I'm in it heart and

The 2007 feasibility study

Traffic cones guide motorists around road construction at the intersection of 14th
Street and Amelia Island Parkway, where a roundabout is being constructed. The
work will lead to the closure of 14th Street starting next week, according to signs in
the area. A detour route will be set up along Simmons and Amelia roads. The road
could be closed until March 4, according to the county, which is funding the project.

Johnson's brainchild. "I get
tasked to try and save money
if we can, and find feasible
methods where we don't cut
down on service but can cut
down on costs," he said.
The Code Enforcement,
Growth Management,
Engineering and Human
Resources departments all
have new phone numbers.
"We've actually got one
department left - that's the
Road and Bridge Department
out in Hilliard, and they're slat-
ed to switch over next month,"
Johnson said.
For the departments that
have completed the switch, the

old numbers went offline
Wednesday - but customers
calling those numbers will hear
a recorded message advising
them of the new numbers.
The savings will be signifi-
cant, Johnson said. "Initially
we're looking at 16 telephone
lines at about $25 per line per
month," he said. "That's about
$5,000 per year, and that's not
even making any phone calls -
that's just the cost of service.
When you add phone calls on
top, we're probably saving
about $15,000 per year."
Even with the savings, it
took awhile to make the
change. "We've been trying to
get it implemented now for the
last three to four months,"

Johnson said. "...There's an ini-
tial cost for the telephone. It
was hard. Budgets were tight,
and nobody had the initial
outlay even though it paid for
itself within six months. That's
one of the reasons it took so
long. The departments were
for it - it was just finding the
Johnson said the change
would also simplify life for the
departments' customers. "This
makes it easier for the citizens
too, because there's only one
telephone number for each
department," he said. "It does-
n't block calls - that one tele-
phone number can take four
to five calls at any given time."

FPU to Announce Energy Conservation Cl/ullciglc Winner
at Big Tent Event

(Fernandina Beach, Fla.) - The first ever
Florida Public Utilities (FPU) Energy
Conservation Challenge successfully
encouraged 500 customers in FPU's
Northeast and Northwest Divisions to
compete for the title as the No. 1 energy
saver in their communities. At the
conservation-oriented Big Tent Event on
February 4, FPU will announce the NE
Division contest winner.

The Big Tent Event will take place from
8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the FPU office located
at 911 South 8th Street, and the Energy
Conservation Challenge champion will
be crowned at noon. At the event, FPU
will provide a wealth of conservation
information to customers, demonstrate
home improvements to increase energy
efficiency and distribute free Energy
Saver Kits to help customers implement
the conservation tips they learn.
Refreshments will also be served.

"I am looking forward to the Big Tent
Event and the naming of our Energy
Conservation Challenge winner," said
Jay Smith, FPU energy conservation
representative. "The event is an
opportunity for me to work one on one
with customers to answer questions
about conserving energy and offer FPU's
expert knowledge in energy efficiency."

At the start of the competition, each
customer received a conservation kit
that included caulk, weather stripping,
compact fluorescent light bulbs, and
many other supplies to help customers
reduce home energy consumption.
Energy consumption was tracked over

a three-month period and total kilowatt
hours consumed were compared against
2007 data from the same time period.
Each customer documented conservation
measures used, and at the upcoming
event, FPU will announce the contestant
who achieved the greatest reduction in
kilowatt hours. The winner will receive
a $500 Lowe's gift card good toward
U.lii:' -efficient products and will be
featured in FPU's 2009 conservation
advertising campaign.

"I am so proud that a large number of
customers signed up to participate in
the Energy Conservation Challenge,"
said Mark Cutshaw, general manager
for FPU's Northeast Division. "The
Energy Conservation Challenge is a great
opportunity to make conservation fun
for the entire family while establishing
energy saving habits that will produce
reductions in electric bills."

traded utility company, which since 1924,
has provided safe, reliable and competitively
priced energy as well as value added services
to over 94,000 customers in growing markets

"I've been most concerned

sion seems pretty shortsighted
to me. ... I've been involved

half-wit cousins are trying to
run a marina."
Sapp said he was not
opposed to getting proposals
on a marina lease. But, he said,
"Logic dictates that someone
is not going to want to come in
and take it over as is."
"The likelihood of ever run-
ning this marina at a profit is
zero," said resident Lynn
Williams. "And therefore the
notion that somebody's going
to come in and we're going to
pay the debt service so they
can make a profit ... is likely
zero, too."
"They will have to report
monthly to the BigP program
manager," Williams continued.

that they will have to open their
books as a subcontractor to the
city ... private companies don't
like to do that."

"If the commission decides
to let the city manager go out
for request for proposals," said
Sapp, "I would encourage you
not to make the same mistake
the commission made in the

then you develop relationships

terms and conditions. "(The
leaseholders) would be bound
by the terms and conditions of
the lease," said Czymbor, "and
understanding that we have a
contract with the state and fed-

The city's last marina loan,
according to Lott's study, was
in 2005. The city took out a 15-
year loan of $5.1 million from
Bank of America, with a fixed
interest rate of 3.77 percent.
Most of the available funds of
$2.4 million, said Lott, went for
marina dredging in fiscal year

left to draw from that loan.

Crenshaw votes no

on stimulus plan

U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw
was among those who voted
against a proposed federal eco-
nomic stimulus bill Wednes-
The U.S. House of Repre-
sentatives approved H.R. 1,
The American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act, by a vote
of 244 to 188. The legislation
will provide the federal gov-
ernment with $825 billion to
spend with the intention of
stimulating growth in the U.S.
All Republicans voted
against the bill, which had the
support of President Barack
Obama and the Democratic
majority in the House. Cren-
shaw, who represents Florida's
Fourth Congressional District,
is a Republican.
"Everyone agrees we can't
afford to sit on the sidelines
and do nothing, but we also
can't afford to do the wrong
thing," he said in a press
release Wednesday night.
"This bill is loaded with waste
and projects that won't grow
the economy or create jobs.
The only thing this bill will
grow is the size of govern-
Congressional Budget
Office Director Douglas
Elmendorf recently acknowl-
edged that the federal gov-
ernment's cost in borrowing
the $825 billion would amount
to $347 billion between 2009
and 2019, bringing the total
cost of the stimulus package to
more than $1.1 trillion.
'The price tag of this pack-
age isn't the only scary thing.
The closer we look at it, the
more non-stimulative, non-job
creating and questionable
spending we find - like $335
million for sexually transmit-
ted disease (STD) education
and prevention programs.
Most Americans are asking
the same question as I am,
'How will that jump start the
economy?'" said Crenshaw.
Other items in H.R. 1 that
Crenshaw cited include $650
million in coupons for digital
TV converter boxes, $400 mil-
lion in climate change
research, $3 billion for pre-

vention and
wellness pro-
grams and
$137 billion
to create 32
new govern-
ment pro-
grams. It also
provides $1
Crenshaw billion for the
census and
$600 million
for new government vehicles.
"Any stimulus package
ought to be targeted, timely,
and temporary. This package
fails to meet all three criteria,"
Crenshaw said. "It is 152 dif-
ferent appropriations with no
strategic vision. It is not
geared toward items that will
create jobs and much of the
money won't be spent until
after 2010 - when the reces-
sion is predicted to be over.
There are no sunset provi-
sions to keep these programs
from becoming permanent."
The CBO recently fore-
casted that the federal budget
deficit will reach a record $1.2
trillion this year, and much of
the $1.1 trillion expense of the
stimulus package could be
added to the existing debt.
"I voted against this bill
because it is too big, too
expensive and too slow. This
plan would produce twice the
jobs for half the cost," said


The Westside Republican
Club will host a Fair Tax
speaker at 7 p.m. Tuesday at

Floridians more optimistic

in January than last month

University ofFlorida
mer confidence among
Floridians inched up in
January despite worse than
expected holiday retail sales
and the state being tied for 10th
place in the percentage of
unemployed workers, a new
University of Florida study
The makeup of the results
was quite different from last
month, with perhaps the
biggest change in the compo-
nent measuring perceptions of
personal finances now com-
pared with a year ago. It broke
a four-month trend downward.
In other changes, percep-
tions of personal finances a
year from now, perceptions of
national economic conditions
over the next year and per-
ceptions of national economic
conditions over the next five
years all fell. Perceptions of
whether it is a good time to
buy big-ticket items rose.
"Overall, Floridians are
more optimistic this month
than last month, although the
overall numbers are still his-

torically low," said Chris
McCarty, director of the UF's
Survey Research Center at the
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. "Moving
forward there is no reason to
believe that the economy will
improve dramatically for the
next two quarters. This reces-
sion is more severe than most,
and there are some aspects
that are different than others."
Employment nationally has
fallen dramatically, and Flori-
da's high number in the per-
centage of jobless is the result
of a combination of factors,
McCarty said. Construction,
which two years ago repre-
sented one of the largest per-
centages of employment in the
state, has ground to a near halt,
and there have been declines
in service sector jobs related to
the real estate crisis as well as
the tourist industry - another
casualty of a pullback in con-
sumer spending, he said.
"Retail sales for the holiday
season ultimately proved to be
even lower than many fore-
casts, and sales will continue to
be weak as consumers cut
back in reaction to the reces-

sion," McCarty said.
Most economists forecast
higher unemployment through
2009 and some even into 2010,
although most of these pre-
dictions do not take into
account any intervention by
the government, he said.
Florida's 8.1 percent unem-
ployment in December - the
latest month for which statis-
tics are available - is higher
than the national rate of 7.2
percent, McCarty said.
McCarty said he was not
surprised that the component
measuring perceptions of per-
sonal finances compared with
a year ago rose this month,
given that it was so low before.
But Floridians remain very
"At some point things can-
not get much worse, or at least
we hope they won't," he said.
Similarly, the optimism last
month about national eco-
nomic conditions over the next
five years, may have been out
of line with actual events and
more about expectations relat-
ing to the transition to a new
presidential administration, he

Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly - Without Probate Fees & Minimum Estate Taxes

If you own a home...or have assets worth at least $100,000...you owe it to
yourself - and your family - to get the facts on living trusts. If you think
you're protected with a simple Will...think again...In many cases a Will
guarantees your estate will go through probate, which means your family
will not be able to take possession of your estate for many months or even

Plus, if your entire estate, which includes life insurance and retirement
plans, is over $1,000,000 in 2011, your family may owe estate taxes which

could amount to 41-55% of the value of your estate. This means that your
family may have to sell some assets just to pay the estate taxes!

A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize estate taxes. Plus, a liv-
ing trust may protect your estate if you become incapacitated during your
lifetime by avoiding a guardianship. This means your estate may be man-
aged as you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit. To find out
more about the benefits of living trusts attend one of these free seminars.

The right decision
The letters bemoaning the
Nassau County Commission's
decision to appeal the judge's
ruling on the Crane Island issue
don't surprise me but the com-
plete lack of appreciation of the
legal "process" and ignorance of
what "centralized authority" por-
tends for not just Nassau
County but for the entire state
just boggles my mind.
First, if the decision had
gone the other way is there any
doubt in your mind the other
side would have appealed, as is
their right? What's good for the
goose is good for the gander;
both sides would and should
have their legal rights available.
Second, it is my under-
standing that the judge over-
reached in his decision and the
appellate court is the place to
resolve that issue. The only way
to do that is to go through the
appeal process.
And last, folks, a sure lesson
in life is that "one size does not
fit all" - what may be good for
Palm Beach County is not nec-
essarily good for Nassau
County. And that is a root cause
of the appeal; does Nassau
County have the right to assert
their own comprehensive plan,
constructed by local officials,
with local input, or do we accept
a one size does fit all form of
centralized government control.
This is an insidious and dan-
gerous concept where all the
power to decide one's property
rights and all community plan-
ning would rest in the hands of
a very small and powerful few,
where only those who are dog-
matic and politically active have
any influence. It is a sure way to
minority control.
I don't think anyone in this
county would accept the tax any-
thing that moves policies of the
politicos in New York and New
York City, but relinquishing
local control to a centralized
governing authority can lead to
just such a situation here. The
anointed few (and un-elected)
will decide the fate of the rest of
When I was young I was
taught we all have rights; para-
mount among those was prop-
erty rights. We now have a
small, activist minority that
wants to limit and take away our
rights, and the quickest way to

do that is through a central
The commission made the
right decision; now let's sit back
and let the process work.
Roy Stafford
Recently the Board of
County Commissioners voted
4-1 to appeal Judge Brian Davis'
ruling on Crane Island. The
judge found the BOCC had
approved increasing the densi-
ty of development fourfold on
the Island, and that it had cir-
cumvented state mandated pro-
cedures required to gain
approval of the increase. Judge
Davis also ruled that the island,
which is designated as conser-
vation land, was a legitimate
interest of the three citizens
who brought suit against the
One of the faults of the per-
spective of the commissioners
voting to appeal the ruling is
that we as county residents have
little or no right to take a tangi-
ble interest in lands designat-
ed as conservation in the com-
prehensive plan. Even though
we do not own these proper-
ties, the very designation of
these lands speaks of their
importance as a resource for
all. The three citizens who
brought suit took an active and
well-documented role in their
appreciation and understanding
of Crane Island as a conserved
In 1993 the county commis-
sion moved to identify Crane
Island as conservation land, offi-
cially sanctioning the signifi-
cance of the island to the public
at large. But since that action,
the county has attempted to
rescind the designation on
numerous occasions. As a
result, when the designation of
the island became threatened,
many members of the public
recognized the benefits of its
conservation and supported
legal actions against the county.
The county commission
must pause to reflect on its lack
of principle in its attempt to
change the density of Crane
Island. When the county com-
mission proposes to make a
major change to the compre-
hensive plan as it did on Crane
Island there must be a "com-
pelling argument" to make that

change. An argument is com-
pelling if any reasonable per-
son recognizes it as having
some merit or gravity even if
disagreeing with the statement.
In a recent e-mail I asked a
commissioner who later voted
to appeal the ruling if he would
please produce such an argu-
ment so we could at least under-
stand why the commission has
acted the way it did. The com-
missioner, who is quite articu-
late normally, was unable to pro-
duce any fundamental reasons
or guiding principles why the
commission chose to change
the density on Crane Island
after it had been officially des-
ignated as conservation. So for
lack of any compelling argu-
ment explaining their action,
one must assume the county
commission acted without prin-
For lack of any clear com-
pelling reason or principle in
their action we must assume
there was no rationale for the
county commission's action
other than the self-evident pecu-
niary benefit a fourfold increase
of density would bring to the
landowner. In the case of Crane
Island we can only conclude the
county commission has placed
the monetary interests of influ-
ential landowners above the
interests of the public in pro-
tecting its natural resources.
William B. Brainard,
Board of Directors

Local control is best
Four of our Nassau County
Commissioners deserve a big
attaboyy" for their decision to
appeal the recent Circuit Court
decision relating to the planned
density on Crane Island. Not
only did the Board of County
Commissioners have the right,
they also have the responsibili-
ty to interpret and apply the
Nassau County Comprehensive
Plan. Local control in land use
matters is an important right
that needs to be protected and
Local officials - elected and
accountable to the voters -
know what is best for Nassau
County, and it is not a respon-
sibility that should be ceded to

missioners work hard to bal-
ance the many competing inter-
ests making demands on coun-
ty government. They also
recognize that people's opinions
differ in regard to positive eco-
nomic growth in the face of a
group trying to hijack our coun-
ty for a "no growth" movement.
Unfortunately, rookie
Commissioner Stacy Johnson
has already allowed herself to
be manipulated by sweet talking
gadfly Robert Weintraub.
I applaud the county com-
missioners for facing up to
tough decisions and for want-
ing to "get it right." Despite let-
ters to the contrary, Commis-
sioner Mike Boyle's words and
actions are framed in the best
interests of all of the county's cit-
izens, not just a vocal few.
The board's vote to appeal
the ruling supports develop-
ment that is controlled and
attractive, including a never-
before-seen local park on the
river for our enjoyment and that
of our children.
Their actions represent me,
and the majority of people I
know. They have heard the
other side of the Crane Island

debate, and they realize the ben-
efits and responsibilities of keep-
ing development controlled
within our county.
Further, Commissioner
Boyle and his fellow thoughtful
colleagues, who had done their
homework, are well aware that
over the projected 10-year build-
out, tax receipts from Crane
Island residents will generate
$8 million for Fernandina Beach
and a total of $30 million for all
of Nassau County.
How City Commissioner
Ron Sapp could walk away from
$8 million is beyond compre-
Hopefully, the appeals court
will acknowledge the wisdom
and leadership of Commission-
er Boyle and reverse Judge
Brian Davis.
J.T. King
Fernandina Beach
Now that the State
Attorney's Office declared the
city of Fernandina Beach's
noise ordinance unconstitu-
tional, City Manager Czymbor,
will you please work with our
elected officials to come up with

a real noise ordinance that spec-
ifies decibel levels that cannot
be exceeded during set times.
Fernandina Beach has to be
the only city in America with a
noise ordinance that does not
have decibel levels established.
Now we are left with no ordi-
nance on the books.
Why was the noise ordi-
nance changed a few years ago
anyways? The old ordinance
had established levels during
set times. When I e-mailed you
on Dec. 2 to complain about our
arbitrary noise ordinance, you
replied to me that "The city
amended our noise ordinance a
few years ago to comply with
previous court rulings." Well,
now you have to amend the
ordinance again!
How did our city attorney,
Tammi Bach, let this go on for
so long? It is her job to advise
the city officials on what is legal
and to prevent wasting taxpay-
ers' money on issues that can-
not be prosecuted. Too much
of our taxpaying dollars were
wasted in court cost and police
involvement over this conflict
between the Florida House/
Frisky Mermaid and the Green
Turtle Tavern. They are sim-
ply two businesses that are in
competition for the same cus-
It is a shame that during this
tough economic time and with
local businesses closing every
month that the Green Turtle
Tavern was forced to deal with
an unconditional ordinance that
has cost the owner tens of thou-
sands of dollars. Police used
Gestapo tactics to clear out the
porch of the Green Turtle
Tavern on its most busy nights.
Those are the nights that every
business owner needs to sur-
vive the off-season.
If the city of Fernandina
Beach truly does not want the
Green Turtle Tavern to be locat-
ed at its current spot like it per-
mitted it to be, then you must
buy out the business.
Trying to change ordinances
to favor your opinion is unlawful.
The cost of buying the business
is far less on the taxpayers than
the court costs and police
Hopefully the owner of the
Green Turtle Tavern does not
sue the city for harassment and
loss of business as that would
cost the taxpayers even more.
From this taxpaying citizen's
vantage point, it sure seems like
he has a good case.
Anyway, good luck in the
lawsuit filed by the Florida
House over the neon sign ordi-
nance. If you win that and they
are forced to pay their out-
standing fines, then we will be
able to recoup some of the loss-
es spent on this unconstitutional

The other day I was driving
on AIA eastbound, there was a
log truck traveling not far
behind me in the other lane,
when the light changed, but not
suddenly. I stopped, yet the log
truck kept going, even though
it could have stopped. Another
car had to wait that had the
green light until he got through
the intersection. Thank God the
person was looking and didn't
go just because they had a
green light.
I understand that you are
getting paid by the load, but no
load is worth losing your life,
or killing someone else, just to
save a few minutes. Drive safe
my fellow truck drivers, and
may God bless.

Let sun shine

on public's


No doubt a lot of news people
picked up on one thing that
President Obama said in his inau-
gural address. It was this:
"And those of us who manage the pub-
lic's dollars will be held to account - to
spend wisely, reform bad habits and do our
business in the light of day - because only
then can we restore the vital trust between a
people and their government."
The key phrase, of
course, is "do our business
in the light of day." Does he
mean it? He probably does
.a vv right now. Will he remem-
ber what he said six months
- from now? We'll see.
Pardon me if I sound a
bit cynical. Actually, I
thought Obama gave a
FROM good speech. But ever since
THE I got into journalism at the
naive age of 15, I've heard
HOME state, local and federal
OFFICE politicians promise to "do
... our business in the light of
day." And then, a few
PhilHudgins months after entering
office, they found they
sometimes preferred the cover of night.
They thought it was better, in some cases, if
the public didn't know what was going on.
I've covered public bodies - county com-
missions, city councils, school boards - in
four states, and I found only a handful that
seemed to do all public business in the light
of day.
But I learned at a tender age from a great
editor, the late Sylvan Meyer, that the sun
needs to shine on every governmental body.
I remember Meyer's story about going to
city hall in Gainesville, Ga., where he was to
become editor of a new daily, and finding a
government committee meeting behind a
closed door. He beat on the door demanding
admittance and shouting through the key-
hole: "No closed sessions! No closed ses-
Then, on an impulse, he pounded on the
door and yelled, "Fire! Fire!" He was
promptly escorted to the street by two irate
policemen. But government officials got the
point from Meyer's editorial in the newspa-
per the next day: Secret meetings will not be
tolerated; the public has a right to know.
Now, I'm not advocating that someone
yell "Fire! Fire!" at the door of a secret meet-
ing, but you must understand Meyer's frus-
tration. He had found a lot of secret meet-
ings going on, and he was put out.
You all know this, I'm sure: News people
have no more rights to public meetings or
public records than you do. If a governmen-
tal body is keeping the press out when it
doesn't have a legal right to do so, then it's
keeping you out, too. These are public meet-
ings and public records. News reporters are
only part of the public.
Yes, there are times when most public
bodies can go into "executive session," a
flimsy euphemism for closed meeting. But
are they all legitimate? No. Do they all need
to be closed? No.
So let's see how much light of day will be
shining in the White House a few months
from now. Let's hope a lot. It's about time.

FRIDAY, January 30, 2009 NEWS News-Leader

[ We all have reason to

The face that smiles at us publicly
often conceals sharp teeth that would
tear out our throats in private. The
hand that shakes our hand often is a decoy to
divert our attention from the other hand that
wields a dagger aimed at our heart. The arm
draped around our shoulder in a show of cama-
raderie can prevent us from noticing the ugly
but deadly little gun jammed into our ribs.
Words can conceal hatred, conceit, jealousy
and prejudice even when coated with confec-
tioner's sugar and drizzled with milk chocolate.
Over a lifetime we become cynical and
jaded. We mistrust others even when their
intentions are good. We assume the worst
when the best is offered. We devise all sorts of
ways to justify the way we isolate ourselves
from fellowship with others. Once bitten, twice
shy. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me
twice, shame on me. Nothing in life is free.
There's always a catch. Someone's always
wanting something for nothing.
I'm guilty of it. You're guilty of it. We're all
guilty of it. It's how we get by in a world that
judges us all, the quick and the dead alike, and
then casts us all into the same inferno.
But every now and then, someone comes
along who causes us to take our own inventory
and realize that we're all in the lifeboat togeth-
er and that the only way we're going to survive
the storm is to put aside petty differences,
bend to the oars and pull together. In the days
of yore, such people were called prophets.

A Florida prison inmate
named Johnny Standridge
recently wrote a letter to this
newspaper and extolled a
Christmas-themed short
story I wrote that was pub-
lished in the paper on
Christmas Eve. Johnny
Standridge says he read that
story in his prison cell and it
CUP OF moved him to tears in an
JOE environment where the last
thing you want to do is show
weakness through crying.
Joe Palmer Folks, don't get me wrong.
This isn't about me. This is about something
much, much bigger than a man sitting at his
computer amusing himself writing columns
and schmaltzy short stories.
I'm not going to go so far as to call Johnny
Standridge a prophet, although, for all I know,
maybe he is. I do know this. The clarion call he
issues for us to take stock of ourselves and to
keep in mind that no matter how bad we think
we have it, someone else always has it worse,
For the life of me, I can't remember who
Johnny Standridge is, even though it's as clear
as the waters of an Appalachian mountain
stream that he remembers me. That I can't
remember having crossed paths with this sin-
cere sounding young man is embarrassing.
That something I did had such a profound
impact on him is humbling.

We need newspapers
A recent New Yorker magazine has an article
that begins "The newspaper is dead."
Our newspapers are in trouble, but dead?
Major papers have folded, the local papers can-
not compete with the media 24/7 national and
international news, costs rise and the papers
shrink. I've talked to (News-Leader Editor
Michael) Parnell, the editor of the Times-Union
and our daughter-in-law (who has worked for
30 years on the Lakeland Ledger), and they are
Maybe we should be worried, too. We could
lose our local newspapers, but do we want to?
Not have a newspaper? How will we know
the best buys at the grocers? Or any of the ads?
Or know actions of our county and city com-
missioners? How about the school board and our
school sports? Or deaths, the arts or churches
or clubs? Don't we need the reports of crime in
our midst? The op-ed section is my favorite,
what will take its place? How many local busi-
nesses will fail for lack of advertising? There is
no other source that will provide all the local
information we need
I read the paper cover to cover. The Rapid City
Journal, my father and the Sunday Denver Post
helped me learn to read. In our many travels
across this country, we always picked up a paper

My unsolicited advice would be: provide the
widest and best possible coverage of local news,
feature articles, columnists and editorial pages.
The brief headliners of state, national and inter-
national news will suffice, we get it on TV ad

readers to become a part of the process by call-

Family Bible returned
I would like to thank our local papers for
printing my letter sometime in November. I
received three responses, all of which were clear-
ly related to the family members listed inside the
Bible. I have returned the Bible to the one who
seemed to be the closest related to the names

Perhaps you didn't see Johnny Standridge's
letter in the paper recently. If not, the loss is
yours. It was one of the most eloquent letters
I've read in awhile, and not because he said
something nice about me. No, it was the bare
appraisal of his own circumstances that struck
home with me. I've read many letters from pris-
oners. Too often they're larded with self-pity,
anger, blame and totally lacking in appreciation
for their own shortcomings or the conse-
quences thereof. Johnny Standridge makes no
excuses for whatever landed him behind bars
12 years ago. He doesn't try to convince us that
he's found the image of Jesus, Allah or Buddha
in a peculiar stain on the wall of his cell. It's not
a sly shill for commissary money or free legal
help. It's not a prison scam. Rather, it seems to
be the self-assessment of a man who's come to
terms with his own sins and imperfections,
who uses the tragedy of his own fall to urge us
all to be grateful for what we have, even when
we believe we have little reason to celebrate.
"As I sit and ponder my less than ideal situa-
tion, I also realize that there are those a lot
worse off than I am," he wrote. "Not only
inside the prison system, but also out in the
world. So let's all stop and cherish our individ-
ual stations in life. Be thankful for those things
that so often go overlooked."
Sometimes the note that rings truest comes
from a tarnished bell.

inside. I do not want to disclose the names inside
of the Bible due to confidentiality and privacy rea-
sons, but she is certainly welcome to write a let-
ter if she would like to share more.
A few interesting facts that I learned includ-
ed that her family lived on Cumberland Island in
the 1940s and '50s. She stated the name of her
mother and that they lived in a two-story white
house across the small road where Beulah was
a black lady that cooked for the workers. This
would have been the kitchen on the south end.
Her grandmother was a companion to one of
the family members on Cumberland and her
grandfather was a boat captain.
It was a very primitive Bible that I found on
one of our many bookshelves in our home while
dusting one day. My husband lived in the Beulah

Alberty House on the north end of Cumberland
in front of the church during the 1970s. Many
items had been left in the house by the former
owner, Beulah Alberty, all of which have little or
no monetary value. He donated the original
crude tin communion set to the National Park
Service at that time. We have not seen it since;
perhaps when the park eventually receives a
full-time superintendent we can discuss having
it put on display.
I would like to use this information to encour-
age all of you to seek out the rightful owners of
antiques, etc.; if you can find their rightful owner,
it is sometimes more rewarding than their mon-
etary value.

Man cannot live by bread alone

collected person. Actually, my credi-
tors trying to collect things from me,
mostly money, are responsible for
this and I have been officially collected. If I
could only just collect my thoughts but the
pieces are too small and too few.
Anybody who knows me knows I am not
easily rattled by anything. I let the chips fall
where they may because I know from whence
they came. I am not susceptible to the various
rumors that make their way around on a regu-
lar basis.
All the debate about global warming, for
example, has not in the least disturbed my per-
sonal serenity. Some say the Earth is getting
warmer while others insist it is getting cooler.
Who in the world are you to believe?
Then there was the hullabaloo about how
harmful chocolate was to a person only to be
discovered later that it has marvelous health
benefits. Pass me another bonbon.
Others took potshots at coffee. Again, it was
found that a morning cup of Joe is just the
thing to get a person on the go.
I took all of these things in the good-natured
way that is typical of Yours Truly. I try not to let
anything get my dander up. In fact, I am quite
proud of the humble way in which I respond to
all of these negativities. Usually with a cup of
coffee in one hand and a bonbon in the other.
All was going well until one morning the
Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage rattled my
cage. She takes great pleasure in doing some-
thing like this.
"Have you seen the trouble they are having
with peanut butter?" she said.
This actually caught me by surprise
because I had not heard any such thing. My
wife went on to explain that in some cases they
were recalling certain peanut products.
Personally, I know a few nuts that need to be

He needs a little bit ofpeanut
butter to hold it all together

I do not mind if they fool around with global
warming, and recall every car on the planet. I
care not what they say about chocolate and cof-
fee, but I go by one simple rule; do not mess
with my peanut butter.
My basic philosophy is, man shall not live
by bread alone, he needs a little bit of peanut
butter to hold it all together.
I am not sure who invented peanut butter -
it might have been God Himself - all I know is
it is the food of the gods. According to Wikipe-
dia, there has never been a time in history
when there was not some form of peanut but-
ter. It is one of the few essential items in this
world that nobody can get along without. I can
hardly imagine a world without this marvelous
concoction, either creamy or crunchy.
There are many things I can get along with-
out, but I cannot get along without my daily
ration of peanut butter.
Some people have chocolate as a comfort
food. Some people's comfort food of choice is a
bag of salty potato chips. Others pamper their
comfort with ice cream. And I say, to each one
his own. My comfort food is simply peanut but-
ter, preferably crunchy.
The thing about peanut butter that is so
amazing is it can be used in a variety of ways. I
would guess that the list is all but limitless.
Hardly a month goes by that I do not discover a
new way to enjoy peanut butter.
There, of course, is the traditional peanut
butter and jelly sandwich. Every thoughtful
and loving mother starts her young brood off
on a nutritious and delicious peanut butter and
jelly sandwich. If your mother was quite like
my mother, she affectionately trimmed the

edges, which made the peanut butter all the
more delightful.
Need I mention peanut butter cookies,
peanut butter fudge, Southern peanut butter
soup with pepper jelly (www.peanutbut-
terlovers.com /recipes/soupjelly.html),
peanut butter cheesecake (www.peanutbut-
terlovers.com/recipes/ cheesecake2.html),
peanut butter candy and a peanut butter and
chocolate sundae?
I'm not alone in this appreciation. 'To me,
peanut butter is the breakfast of champions!"
opined Greg Louganis, Olympic diver. And if
anybody should know what a championship
eats for breakfast he should.
Peanut butter can be used for breakfast,
lunch and supper. And for all those snacks in
Those who know the history of our country
will remember that two presidents of the
United States were peanut farmers (efferson
and Carter). I'm not sure of this, but I think it
helped them deal with the nuts at Washington.
Of all the ways to enjoy peanut butter there
is one I prefer above all else. That is simply a
nice tablespoon of peanut butter right out of
the jar. If a tablespoon is not handy, several fin-
gers will do the trick admirably.
Really, there is no bad way to enjoy the mar-
velous taste of peanut butter.
Speaking of comfort food, the Bible has the
perfect recipe. "Yea, though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they
comfort me." (Psalms 23:4 KJV)
God has a marvelous way of taking our
attention away from the trials of this world and
focus our thoughts on Him.

First Presbyterian Church welcomes new members

My, how time seems to fly by the older we
get! The Christmas holidays were filled with
many activities as the church's Sunday School
classes always begin planning their parties
first. The senior adult party with Larry
Williams leading assisted by his devoted wife,
Jewell, and others giving a devotional, singing,
giving testimonies, etc. They always have a
great turnout. The meal is catered and always
special. This is always a "memorable get
together." Larry wears a smiling face, which
makes the occasion a special one indeed.
First Presbyterian Church, 9 North Sixth
St., has some new members. The Granger
family moved to Fernandina from Matthews,
N.C., in June. With the exception of five-year-
old Davis, who was born in Matthews, N.C.,
the Grangers are all native Floridians (Peg
McKee Granger is a native of Fernandina).
Bayley, 22, is a senior at Appalachian State
University in Boone, N.C.; Morgan, 20, is a
sophomore at University of Edinburgh in
Scotland; Davis is a proud kindergartner at
Southside Elementary. David is employed by
Wachovia and Peg is an exceptional student
teacher at Yulee Elementary School. A great
little family. Peg's mother is Margaret McKee.
Leroy McKee was her late father.
John Brooks comes by transfer of letter
from the North Jacksonville Baptist Church.
Max and Joann Hord are close friends who
invited John to First Presbyterian Church.
John is a single dad with a four-year-old son.
He grew up on the north side of Jacksonville
in the Yellow Bluff area. John graduated from
UNF in 1996 and works in a partnership that
provides service to a local paper mill.
Through "Party of Eight" at Fernandina
Presbyterian Church, adult dinner groups of
eight will meet in February, March, April and
May to share a meal and each other as we
build fellowship in the body of Christ. Don't
miss out on the pleasure of gathering around
the table with other members of First
Presbyterian Church. We all have different
gifts, talents and interests, and therefore, have
much to offer one another. Groups were intro-
duced Jan. 23 at the kick-off dinner in Jim
Thomas Hall. There you met other dinner
partners, enjoyed a fine meal, delightful enter-
tainment and some "getting to know you bet-
ter" conversation. It's a lot of fun making new

A word from Pastor Jackie Hayes of Spring-
hill Baptist Church: "While preaching recently,
I made the following statement:'Even though
2008 has been a tough year for many, the
blessings of the Lord still outweigh the bur-
dens of life!' And that is true, isn't it? It is easy
to see our burdens, and even our blunders, but
don't forget to reflect upon all the blessings
that have come your way this past year.
"I thought I would listen to one of my own
messages and do just that for 2008. So here
goes: Kathy and I celebrated 30 years of mar-
riage; we welcomed our first grandchild into
our family; we discovered we are expecting a
second in May; our health has been very
good; God continues to allow me to be pastor
at Springhill; we were able to sell our house;
plus a thousand more! You know how it works
- if you want to focus on what is wrong, then
that is about all you will see. But if you choose
to focus on how God has blessed you, then
you will begin to see those. So, look up. God is
good, even in the midst of struggles and disap-
pointments. He is still good. Amen!
"What will 2009 bring our way? Boy, if we

only knew. Not sure all our new president will
be able to do. Not sure if revival will come to
our churches and ultimately to our nation. Not
sure about a lot of things, but I do know one
thing - and it is the most important: God is
still God and he is in control. Hang on to that.
You might just need to know that somewhere
along the way. So keep you eyes on him. The
storms may come, but we will make it
through. Blessings from God on you."
Pastor Chris Taylor, former youth director
of Gray Gables, Callahan, who has been pastor
of Clear Springs Baptist in Mascot, Tenn., for
three years now, sends me some interesting
news every month as I asked him to do in our
last phone conversation the afternoon he was
leaving for the new church.
Pastor Chris writes: "What a year 2008
proved to be for this church! God allowed us
to be involved in many areas and aspects of
ministry. We were able to minister here in our
community through benevolence, physical
work and spiritual guidance. Also, we had the
privilege to reach outside our community
through Missions of Hope mission trips to
Wilmington, N.C., and Jamaica. Not to men-
tion the ministry that we were allowed to do
through WMU, women's and men's ministries,
our youth and senior adults ministries and the
Living Christmas Tree. All in all, God was
good to us in 2008!
"Now, as we have turned the page to 2009, I
believe it is time for us to move even deeper in
our relationship with the Lord, both as individ-
uals and as a church. Our theme for this will
be To Know Christ and Make Him Known.'
All that we do this year will have that thought
as its driving force. Our goal as individuals
should always be to know Christ more each
and every day. However, we are also called to
tell others about Him or make Him known to
those who are lost and hurting. As a church,
everything we teach, everything we say,
everything we do should have the end result
of helping us know Christ deeper or to make
Him known to others, or both.
"Happy New Year. I pray that your one res-
olution this year will be to know Christ and to
make Him known."
From Dr. L. Holton Siegling Jr., pastor of
First Presbyterian Church: "On Dec. 16, the
session of our church extended a formal and
heartfelt welcome to the Rev. Scott Burton and

his family to participate in a pulpit exchange
with our church family from July 5 to Aug. 2.
"Scott is the minister of the St. Matthew's
Parish Church, which is located in Scotland in
the city of Perth. He has been there for two
years, having previously served as the pastor
of the Kelty Kirk in Kelty Fife. Scott has stud-
ied at both St. Andrews University and
Aberdeen University. He is 38 years old and
will be accompanied by his wife, Jill, and their
two young daughters, Eilidh and Sara, who are
10 and seven years old, respectively.
"Scott had this to say about our upcoming
exchange: 'Exchanging pulpits and homes
with Holton and his beautiful family in 2005
was a true joy and privilege. We have such
wonderful memories of the benefits to one and
all in each congregation. To repeat such an
upbuilding personal and professional opportu-
nity in Fernandina Beach and Perth will with-
out doubt only enhance the ecclesiastical skills
and Christian relationships already developed.
We look forward to sharing with you all so
very much indeed.'
"During the exchange, Scott will ably fill
the pulpit and lead in worship on Sundays; he
will also provide any necessary pastoral care
throughout his stay. Scott and his family will
surely welcome your hospitality and appreci-
ate your recommendations of places to go and
things to see while they are in our part of the
'The Burton family will reside in our home
and have use of our vehicles; any housing or
automobile concerns that may arise during
their stay will be handled by the property com-
mittee and resolved upon our return. There is
no financial payment involved for Scott's pro-
fessional services since it is expected that
each of us will continue to receive our salary
as normal.
'Throughout this exchange, I pray that
God will bless all of us with a heightened
sense of vision and renewed commitment to
Christ and his Church. By God's grace, may
we eagerly learn about the Presbyterian
Church elsewhere in the world, further
explore our identity as children of God, and
share how we live out our calling as Christ's
Church in Fernandina Beach."
"May Our great heavenly Father continue
to watch over us and keep us in His loving

At one time or another, we all have been in
situations that require us to muster up
courage and face our fears. Simply stated,
courage is rising above our fears and
taking charge of our lives during difficult times.
The Bible tells us that we will have tribulations
in this world, but that we should be of
good cheer, because God has overcome the world.
(John 16:33) Being courageous comes in many different ways.

Take Courage





FRIDAY, January 30, 2009/News-Leader


Sliding through life without dealing with yourpast is dangerous

t happened so fast no one knew
what to do. Though Rick - that's
my brother - was not the kind
of guy known for exaggerating
things, his cries for help were hard
to believe. If it hadn't been for the
bright blood, now staining the snow
where he was lying, I think we
would have told him to just shake it
off and that he would be all right.
I don't remember how old I was,
maybe 11 or 12, which would have
made Rick about 14, but the place
where it all happened I will never
forget: Joe's Hill.
Now if you had grown up in
Burlington, Vt., and in the neighbor-
hood where I did, you'd know all
about Joe's Hill. It was the best spot
to go sledding for miles around.
Joe's Hill, or "Joe's Road" as we


Rob Goyette

sometimes called
it, was little more
than a downhill
dirt road that led to
old farmer Joe's
property - a beauti-
ful piece of land
that bumped up to
our neighborhood
and hugged the
banks of the
Winooski River.
During the winter
months, the old
road was the neigh-
borhood hot spot
for anyone who

wanted to go sledding.
As a kid, it all seemed so big. The
hill, the canopy of trees that covered
the road, the jump we made from an

old tree stump and the long climb
back to the top. It all brings back
such great memories, except for the
day that Ricky tore his leg open that
What made things such a mys-
tery was that my brother hadn't
done anything unusual. He hadn't
gone over the jump, crashed into a
tree or run into another person.
Really, the whole thing made no
sense at all. I suppose the only thing
that was different was that he had
coasted a little further than usual
and ended up just slightly off the
beaten trail.
That's when it happened.
Covered in a few inches of soft, pow-
der-like snow was an old car hood
with a jagged edge. As my brother
Ricky slid by it, his leg was sticking

out just enough to hit it and, as a
result, he received a nasty cut that
we still talk about to this day.
I've often thought about that old
car hood and what happened to my
brother, and I consider how danger-
ous things can be that get covered
up but are never really dealt with.
You know what I mean. If we don't
properly dispose of the garbage
from our past, like that old car hood,
it's only a matter of time before it
shows up and hurts someone. For
me, that's what makes the message
of Jesus Christ so appealing. Not
only does He offer us forgiveness for
our sins, but He also promises to
remove those very sins as far as the
east is from the west. Now that's a
deal you can't find anywhere else.
Whether we are talking about

past failures, relationships that have
gone bad, or just plain stupid things
we've done, there's no need to leave
all those jagged edges lying just
underneath the surface of our lives.
Proverbs 28:13 says this: "He that
covers his sins shall not prosper: but
whosoever confesses and forsakes
them shall have mercy." Again,
Psalm 103:11-12, "For as the heaven
is high above the earth, so great is
His mercy toward them that fear
Him. As far as the east is from the
west, so far has he removed our
transgressions from us."
As for me, I've never once regret-
ted letting Jesus carry away all my
sin and shame.

Pirates host county teams in Johnny T. Smith tourney

News Leader

It's rivalry time in Fernandina
Beach. The 16th annual Johnny T.
Smith Classic tips off tonight at
Fernandina Beach High School.
West Nassau and Hilliard, two West
Side teams that haven't met in a few
seasons, will play at 6 p.m. The East
Side rivals, Yulee and Fernandina
Beach, play at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday is championship night.
The consolation game is at 6 p.m. with
the Nassau County championship tilt
set for 7:30 p.m.
TipOff "What makes it
The Wesi Side interesting is that
nvalry kicks of Yulee beat us and
the 16lh annual West Nassau beat
Johnny T Smirth Yulee," said Matt
Classic tonight Schreiber, head
Hilliard and boys basketball
West Nassau coach at FBHS.
play at 6 p m "West Nassau's
East Side rivals playing better, so
Yulee and they're probably
Fernandina feeling good about
play at 7 30 their chances,"
p m The con- The Pirates -
solation and 20-2 overall, 7-1 in
championship the district and
games are at ranked seventh in
the same times 3A in the state this
Saturday week, one spot
ahead of district
forerunner Ribault- have dominated
the annual tournament, held in mem-
ory of Smith, the late hoops coach at
FBHS. The Pirates won back-to-back
titles in 2006 and 2007, giving them
nine titles in the last 11 years.
"As people change districts and
coaches, it's pretty rare for a tourna-
ment to last for a long period of time,"
Schreiber said. '"This tournament has
had changes throughout the years and
we've been able to adapt."
So far this season, the Pirates are
5-1 against county teams with their
only loss coming at the hands of Yulee,
which avenged an earlier loss this sea-
son to the Pirates. West Nassau got
revenge too, beating Yulee last week.
"It's probably more exciting this
year than in years past because every-
one feels they have a chance,"
Schreiber said.
Admission is $4. Play is in Pirate
Gym off Citrona Drive.
The Pirates are coming off a 74-47
win over Bolles Tuesday.
"I thought we came out very
focused and played with a lot of pas-
sion, which is probably due to the fact
that you see the light at the end of the
tunnel right now," Schreiber said. "I
think the players realize it's not an
endless season and they're going to
get as much out of each game as they
can from this point on.
"When you have 21 assists and only
eight turnovers, it shows that your
players are doing a great job taking
care of the basketball and being
unselfish with it."
FBHS took a 21-8 first-quarter lead
and extended it to 40-22 at halftime.
They outscored the Bulldogs 23-9 in
the third quarter. Bolles won the
fourth, 16-11.
Tai Alford and Jake Brogdon paced
the Pirates with 16 points apiece.
Brogdon had four three-pointers.
Alford had two rebounds, three assists
and four steals and Brogdon had three
rebounds and three steals.

The Pirates and Hornets will square off again this season tonight in the nightcap of the 16th annual Johnny T. Smith classic basketball tour-
nament at Fernandina Beach High School. The county title is on the line and the Hilliard Flashes and West Nassau Warriors get things start-
ed in the first game at 6 p.m. The consolation game is slated for 6 p.m. Saturday with the championship at 7:30 p.m. Left, Yulee's
Demetrius Small shoots while Pirate Zach Rocheleau defends the basket in an earlier matchup this season. Right, Yulee's Jarell Mitchell
and Fernandina's Terin Dallas catch air earlier this season. The Pirates won the first battle and Yulee avenged the loss in their second meet-
ing. The Pirates also host the nine-team District 3-4A tournament Feb. 9-14. Ribault is unbeaten in district play and holds the top seed. The
Pirates are the second seed and the Hornets are seeded third.

Zach Rocheleau was in double fig-
ures also, scoring 13 points for the
Pirates with a trio of three-pointers.
He also had six assists. Carlos Holcey
had seven points, four rebounds and
four assists. Terin Dallas and Patrick
Garvin pulled down four boards
The Pirates cap the regular season
with a trio of home games, including
the tournament this weekend. They
host Bishop Snyder Thursday for the
regular season finale.
"We had a long stretch of away
games," Schreiber said. "I don't want
to jinx us but we haven't lost at home
this year."
They'll be back home for the
District 4-3A tournament too. The
Pirates, seeded second ahead of Yulee,
host the tournament Feb. 9-14.
Yulee is coming off a win over
Hilliard on Tuesday. The Hornets wrap
up the regular season Tuesday at

home with Trinity Christian.
* The FBHS Lady Pirates (4-13)
lost to Baker County 51-42 Tuesday in
the regular season finale.
'The girls played well throughout
the entire game, not letting Baker get
the lead stretched out too far," said
Mike Landtroop, head girls basket-
ball coach at Fernandina Beach High
School. "The first time we played
Baker was at home and they beat us by
20. This game was a definite improve-
"Baker is a very good team with
some good athletes. The Lady Pirates
handled the half-court press well and
made some big baskets when they
were needed."
Whitney Small led the Lady Pirates
with 10 points and two assists. Ebony
Peterson added nine points and
Mackenzie McBride chipped in eight.
J.B. Belcher had five rebounds.
The Lady Pirates play in the district

tournament next week at Baldwin.
FBHS faces Bishop Snyder at 5 p.m.
* The Yulee High Schoolgirls bas-
ketball team finished the regular sea-
son with a 9-9 record after Tuesday's
50-46 win over the visiting Hilliard
Lady Flashes.
"They were leading most of the
game because we were in foul trouble
early," said Brian Shuster, head girls
basketball coach at Yulee. "We pulled
ahead in the fourth quarter. The game
wasn't decided until six seconds were
left. Hillary Fuller hit the front end of
a one-and-one and put us ahead by
four. She missed the second shot,
which caused most of the time to run
The Lady Hornets defeated Fer-
nandina Beach Jan. 23. Fuller led all
scorers with 23 points, Brittany
Register had 10 and Quanisha Garrett
chipped in nine.

"Most of the teams have been dou-
ble-teaming Jennifer (Pelham)," said
Brian Shuster, head girls basketball
coach at Yulee. "It has opened up
things for the other players, especial-
ly Hillary.
"Hillary has also helped on the
boards to give us a big advantage in
the front court. It has allowed
Quanisha to take more of the respon-
sibility to distribute the ball to the
other players.
"Our freshman guards (Andrea
Peterson and Ja'LisaThompson) have
come along during the season and
have been more productive. Brittany
Register has been hitting her shots
outside, which makes us an even more
dangerous team when the district tour-
nament starts.
"We've gone 7-2 since the break
and have played much better. I'll be
interested to see how well we play in
the district tournament."

Steelers'Ward toplaySunday

receiver Hines Ward's game sta-
tus has been one of the most
talked about topics the past
week heading into the Super Bowl. Injured in
the playoff game against the Ravens, Ward
sustained a tear of his MCL. He left the game
in the first half and did not return.
I have expected all along Ward will play
and on Tuesday he announced he is going to
play, while wearing a brace to stabilize the
knee. This is the Super Bowl. Of course he
was going to play. I don't think it was really
ever in doubt.
The MCL is a thick band that runs
between the femur (thigh bone) and tibia
(shin) on the inner aspect of the knee.
Tackling injuries, where the knee goes
inward while the foot goes outward, puts
stress on this ligament and will tear it if the
force is great enough.
This is the most commonly injured liga-
ment in the knee. Often it is torn in players
who get hit from the outside of their knee
while they still have their foot planted. When
torn, a player will notice some instability with
attempts to cut or turn. A brace will help sta-
bilize the knee and may give the player
enough security and confidence that he may
be able to compete.
Ward will be wearing just such a brace.
Many years ago, it was common practice
to try to surgically repair isolated MCL tears.
However, a study in 1983 by Dr. Pete
Indelicato, team physician with the
University of Florida, showed in most cases
surgical repair of the MCLwas not necessary
when a proper rehabilitative and bracing pro-
gram was followed. In fact, his study showed
equal results among those athletes treated
non-surgically versus those treated surgically.
So, the conclusion was you really had noth-

ing to gain from surgery, so
why do it? Furthermore,
with non-surgical treatment,
athletes were able to return
V -u to the field of competition
- When it comes to the
Super Bowl, legends are
made there and, if there is
ever any way possible a
player can walk on to the
SPORTS field, he is going to play.
This was really no differ-
MEDICINE ent than the situation of
GREGORY another Steeler great who
returned to competition
SMITH, M.D. despite a terrible knee
injury. Hall of Famer Rod
Woodson had a 17-year
career and played from 1987-1996 with the
Steelers. During the middle of the 1996 sea-
son, Woodson went down with an ACL tear
and underwent surgery.
Most commonly a player returns to play
after an ACL injury about 6-9 months after
surgery. Woodson was not going to miss his
opportunity to play in the Super Bowl and
returned to action an amazing four months
after surgery to rebuild his knee.
Unfortunately, the Steelers still lost to the
Cowboys, who were led by Troy Aikman and
Emmitt Smith.

Pirates take on Bolles

for District 4-3A crown

News Leader

The Pirate soccer team will
take on Bolles tonight at 7 p.m.
in the District 4-3A tournament
at Episcopal. The Pirates defeat-
ed host Episcopal 3-2 Wednes-
day night to improve to 17-7-1
on the season.
"We needed a penalty kick
tie-breaker to beat one of the
best 3Ateams in the state," said
Joshua Dunn, the Fernandina
Beach High School boys soccer
coach. "Our great team effort
was bolstered by outstanding

individual efforts by Drew
DeAngelo and Davis Haney.
"Drew scored an extraordi-
nary goal after beating two
defenders and shooting from
30 yards out. Davis stopped two
kicks in the tie-breaker.
"Our captains Brian Valdes,
William Hunt and Robby Phil-
lips were key factors. Their
experience, determination and
grit led the way in a hard-
earned victory."
Regardless of the outcome
of tonight's game, both teams
advance into the regional tour-
nament next week.

WATER several fish-
WATERn ing seasons
TERRY ago. It was
simply a hor-
rible day for
any type of
outdoor activity, much less
navigating the blustery cold,
wave-swept waters of the St.
Johns River. But the winners
found a deep hole where bass
were staging to spawn and
weighed in a seven-bass limit,
tipping the scales at over 40
This weekend's weather is
calling for lows Saturday and
Sunday morning, dipping
down into the low 20s, and air
temperatures will only warm
up into the mid 50s, perfect
conditions for finding a big
school of trophy largemouth
bass holding up in a deep
hole and staging to spawn.
Look for deep turns in the
St. Marys, Little St. Marys
rivers and Lofton and Boggy
creeks to hold pre-spawn bass
this weekend. Cast a Bomber
7-A in the fire tiger color pat-
tern to the shallow edge of
the deep hole and slowly
crank the minnow-type plug
down into the deep hole and
hang on.

Offshore fishing has been
excellent for black sea bass
with FA fish haven producing
good eating bass weighing to
three pounds. Begin fishing
with fresh local squid on the
bottom and, when a grunt or
pinfish is boated, cut the
small fish into three- to four-
inch strips for sea bass baits.
Surf fishing has been slow
during the last few days, par-
ticularly at the southern end
of Amelia Island. High tide
Saturday arrives at 11:52 a.m.
with a low tide staging at 5:48
p.m. Fish with fresh shrimp
on the bottom during the
high falling tide for whiting,
blues and flounder.
Sheepshead fishing should
be running during the late
afternoon as the tide falls.
Fish close to the low areas of
the jetty rocks with fiddler
crabs or barnacles.
Sea trout weighing to four
pounds are running at the
Nassau Bridge and Nassau
Sound during the last of the
incoming tide. Drift a live
shrimp deep under a long
trout float.
Remember to dress warm
if you plan on getting out on
the water early this weekend.
A good rain suit is a must to
keep the wind and cold away.

For boaters cruising off-
shore, having a way to sum-
mon help in an emergency is
critical. For years cruisers
and racers making offshore
passages relied upon
Emergency Position
Indicating Radio Beacons uti-
lizing the 121 MHz radio fre-
quency. However, with better
technology available in the
newer 406 MHz EPIRBs, the
U.S. Coast Guard will cease
monitoring the old frequency
Feb. 1.
"406 MHz EPIRBs are now
the standard for offshore dis-
tress signaling," said BoatU.S.

Program Manager David
Carter. 'They have better
accuracy, fewer false alerts
and greater reliability. Search
and rescue agencies are able
to respond quicker and pin-
point offshore boaters in trou-
The BoatU.S. Foundation
highly recommends boaters
who make frequent offshore
passages - generally consid-

ered to be at least 20 miles
out from shore and too far for
VHF radio or cell phone cov-
erage - purchase and install
a new 406 MHz EPIRB.
Current retail pricing starts
around $500. The foundation
also rents the 406 MHz
EPIRBs for just $40 a week
for those with a temporary
need who only go offshore
"Our BoatU.S. EPIRB
Rental Program is perfect for
someone entering an occa-
sional offshore race or mak-
ing that once or twice a year
passage to a new cruising
ground such as Mexico or the
Bahamas," said Carter.
The decision to no longer
monitor the 121 MHz radio
frequency was made by the
international satellite-based
search and rescue organiza-
tion, COSPAS/SARSAT, near-
ly nine years ago, giving time
for mariners to transition to
the newer technology.

'Evening of Story and Song' celebrates fifth season

For the News Leader

around Fernandina Beach
that offer "live music," but
there are few places where
you can actually listen to the words
and music, celebrating the
singer/songwriter's craft.
In Nashville, there are at least a
dozen or so such places, with hun-
dreds of aspiring singer/songwrit-
ers seizing the opportunity to per-
form; but it's such a commonplace
occurrence that audiences tend to
be sparse. So it's no wonder that a
number of Nashville's finest per-
formers and recording artists are
surprised and thrilled to see how
many people turn out for "An
Evening of Story & Song," the popu-
lar series presented by First Coast

Community Bank and hosted by
Mark and Donna Paz Kaufman.
Like other industries, the music
business has changed dramatically
over the past few years. There are
many songwriters who also happen

to be outstanding performers and
recording artists; they go virtually
unnoticed in Nashville, and have
more and more difficulty finding
venues across the country where
they can ply their trade and earn a

living. The Kaufmans, whose work-
life is devoted to supporting inde-
pendent bookstores, thought they
could do the same for independent
recording artists. They had come to
know a number of singer/songwrit-

ers when they lived in Nashville,
since Donna had introduced a regu-
lar Friday night music series at the
bookstore she managed.
In the fall of 2004, they made
arrangements with Mark Elliott, a
good friend with a few albums to his
credit, to "test the waters" by com-
ing down to perform in January.
They struck a deal with The Palace
Saloon as their first venue, although
they had no idea how many people
would attend. Much to their surprise
- and to Elliott's delight, since he
was entitled to 100 percent of all
ticket and CD sales proceeds (as are
all their guests) - more than 90
people turned out. After the show,
the response was overwhelmingly
positive, and all the Kaufmans heard
