Tournament putters mill about the course on a damp and windy nor'easter Saturday, playing through four rounds of miniature golf at the
Sonny's Southern Putting Tour Championship held Oct. 7-9 at Fernandina Beach Putt-Putt. For information about Putt-Putt at Main
Beach or the tournaments, contactAaron Bean at 753-0517 or aaronbean.com.

The chewed-up beach in the 900 block of South Fletcher Avenue was littered with debris on Monday after tidal surges generated by a -
nor'easter storm over the weekend. Days of high tides significantly eroded the beach up and down Amelia Island. The storm, unnamed
but with tropical effects, brought heavy rains, flooding and storm surges that damaged the beach.

the line


News Leader
The lines have been drawn. The
redistricting process is taking shape
after the Nassau County Commission
came to a consensus on a tentative
plan Monday.
Commissioners chose Plan 3 from
five plans drawn by Jason Gregory, an
inside consultant from the Property
Appraiser's Office. The redistricting
process required by the Florida
Constitution, according to County
Attorney David Hallman aims to
equalize population in county districts.
"By and large, what has changed is
that the Yulee district, District 3, has
gotten geographically smaller because
there's been a relatively large popula-
tion increase there," said Hallman. "I
think it's fair to say that the dividing
line between Districts 1.and 2 has
become simpler."
The next step in the process,
Hallman said, is considering the plan
before a formal public hearing at a
date to be determined. Even so, he
said changes could be made to the
plan at that public hearing.
"At that formal public hearing the
board will decide on the final district
lines," he said.
Commissioner Stacy Johnson
favored Plan 3, but deferred to com-
missioners'Danny Leeper and Steve
Kelley, whose districts also-saw sig-
nificant changes under the plan.
Under the new plan, Leeper and
Kelley.would live in the same district,
District 1, which includes northern
Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach.
Under the current districting law,
Kelley lives in District 2, which
includes southern Amelia Island and
Leeper said despite pros and cons
associated with each plan, he preferred
Plan 3.
Kelley concurred, citing the con-
fusing nature of the current district
lines. There are Amelia Island resi-
dents, he said, who do not know which
district they live in.
"This gives us, this board, an oppor-
tunity to kind of clean up some of that,"
Kelley said. "And I really like the crisp-

The Wild Amelia Nature Festival has announced that the rehabilitated sea turtle
release, originally scheduled for Friday, Oct. 6 but cancelled due to heavy wind, high
surf and thunderstorms, has been rescheduled for Monday at 3 p.m. at Main Beach.
The Georgia Sea Turtle Center, in partnership with the Wild Amelia Nature Festival
and the Amelia Island Sea Turtle Watch, will be releasing-at least two and perhaps
three sea turtles. Two of the turtles are greens; the third, a loggerhead with a satellite
transmitter, may be ready to return to its ocean home as well. The.Georgia Sea Turtle
Center rehabilitates injured, sick, cold-shocked and/or stranded turtles along the
southeast coast and then releases them as soon as they are ready. The public is invit-
ed to the release, an event few people ever get to see.

Drivers still talking

TAMPA- For the fourth
consecutive year, the AAA
Foundation for Traffic Safety's
annual Traffic Safety Culture
Index shows drivers know cell
phone use and testing while
driving are dangerous, yet ,
they continue to do it anyway.
Specifically, data from the
2011 survey shows 95 percent
of drivers view texting or
mailing by other drivers as a
serious threat to their own
personal safety, however, 35
percent of those same drivers
also admitted to having read
or sent a text message or
email in the previous month.
"The research shows driv-
ers realize the use of a cell
phone while driving is dan-
gerous. Unfortunately, their
reality falls short because
their belief is that only other
people drive dangerously
while talking/texting, not
themselves," said Michele
Harris, director of Traffic
Safety Culture, AAA Auto
Club Group. "In order to
change out nation's traffic
safety culture, motorists need
to take responsibility for their
actions and change their driv-
ing behaviors for the better."
According to the survey,
88 percent of drivers think
talking on a phone is a threat
to safety, yet two-thirds admit-
ted to having talked on a cell
phone while driving in the
past 30 days. The findings
also showed that peoples'
concern about texting or
mailing while driving (95
percent) is on par with drink-
ing while driving (93 per-
cent). Additionally, 87 percent
of drivers expressed support
for having a law against read-
ing, typing or sending a text
message or email while diiv-
ing and 50 percent of drivers

having a
the use of
3 any type
of cell,
or hands-free, for all drivers
regardless of age.
Distracted driving, espe-
cially the use of cell phones
and text messaging, remains
a top traffic safety concern for
policymakers, safety advo-
cates, law enforcement,
industry, and the public. As
part of AAA's commitment to
improving highway safety for
its members and all road
users, AAA launched a leg-
islative campaign in 2009 to
ban texting while driving in
all 50 states. So far in 2011,
four additional states have
enacted anti-texting laws,
bringing the total number up
to 34 states and the District of
Columbia that have adopted
this safety measure.
"While we're encouraged
by the progress made to ban.
the dangerous practice of tex-
ting while driving in multiple
states, we know there is still a
lot of work to be done," said-
Kevin Bakvwell, senior vice
president and chief public
affairs officer, AAA Auto Club
Group. "AAA continues to
advocate in states without tex-
ting bans and we want to
stress the importance of pub-
lic education efforts to help'
make these good laws more
effective and highlight the
true danger of texting and
Other distracted driving
findings fiom the 2011 Traffic
Safety Culture Index include:
Of those drivers who
admitted to having talked on


a cell phone while driving

55 percent admitted to

City Commissioner Eric
Childers' proposal to raise the
pay of commissioners in their
second term was oversimpli-
fled in a front-page story Oct.
7. Here is what Childers has
said on the subject: "I think
it's a mistake to reduce the
compensation of the commis-
sioner by 20 percent without
grandfathering this reduction,
as it is highly unlikely that

any future commission will
restore it to it's current levels.
Furthermore, I believe it is
unhealthy to position our
commission in such a way,
that only retired people or the
highly successful find it
attractive to run for office. I
believe we need a diverse
commission to best represent
our community. We are a port
town, a mill town, a military

town, a retirement communi-
ty and a tourist town. No one
can argue that $12,000 per
annum is exorbitant. 1 would
further suggest we consider
an increase for a second term.
We the citizens of Fernandina
Beach make a significant
investment in each commis-
sioner we elect via on the job
training, Florida League of
Cities membership, and no
one can deny there is a learn-
ing curve. Relatively few com-
missioners seek a second

term so I think we should
consider compensating sec-
ond term commissioners at a
rate that makes it a little more
attractive. Say $16,000 per
year. By election we can
decide whether or not a com-
missioner deserves a raise."

Nassau County Commissioners and other officials are

cal districts, The board has one seat for each district.
Under the proposed plan adopted Monday, Yulee's
District 3 would shrink in size because its population has
grown, It would be bounded roughly by the St. Marys River
to the north, 1-95 to the west, the Nassau River to the
south and Lofton Creek south of A1A to the east.
Residents living east of Lofton Creek and along the
Amelia Concourse would live in District 2, which includes
Nassauville and southern Amelia Island. District 2 would
be bounded by A1Ato the north, Lofton Creek to the west,
the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Nassau River to the
On the island, District 1 would include Fernandina
Beach and the northern part, District 2 the south portion.
District 1 would be north of AlA coming onto the island,
then east of Amelia Road and north of Simmons. District 2
would be south of A1A coming onto the island, west of
Amelia Road and south of Simmons.
District 4 would include Hilliard and Bryceville and far

City combines 4

,departments to 1


vews Leadaer
According to a memo from
the city manager's office, four
city departments were com-
bined into one department as
of Oct. 1, and two city workers
have taken over leadership roles
within the new department.
The four departments -
parks, streets, facilities and fleet
maintenance are now all part
of the reorganized Maintenance
(The Parks & Recreation
Department remains its own
separate entity.)
' The reorganization plan, was
initially presented to city com-
missioners at a July budget
workshop, although specifics
were not discussed at the time.
Four full-time positions were
eliminated, according to City
Manager Michael Czymbor,
who wrotein an email that actu-
al city savings for the depart-
ment reorganization in the first
year will be about $200,000
because of accrued leave pay-
offs and unemployment costs.
The reorganization will end
up saving $315,000 in the sec-
ond year and in forthcoming
years, according to Czymbor.
For the reorganization, for-
mer streets superintendent Rex
A. Lester will be sharing super-
visor duties within the new
department with former main-
tenance superintendent
Jeremiah Glisson. According to
Czymbor, Glisson and Lester
are each heading up different
sections of the new
Maintenance Department, and
both have the new title of
Maintenance Superintendent
Czymbor also said Glenn
Semanisin, who was hired as
city engineer but gradually took
on many more duties, will now
be focusing solely on stormwa-
ter and project management.
Semanisin's title will remain as
Project Manager/City Engineer.
Two other superintendent
positions were eliminated,
according to Czymbor. Parks
Superintendent Ben Spivey's
position will not be filled when
he retires in December, and
Brian Duncum's Facility
Maintenance Superintendent
position was eliminated. Two
other senior maintenance posi-
tions were also removed from
personnel rolls, Czymbor said.

salary is $51,767 and Lester's

City workers will also be tak-
ing over city janitorial duties,
which Czymbor said would
save the city about $55,000
annually. The Parks &

Buy stock in an

automotive rebound

This column may require the
biggest upfront asterisk of any I
have written. The only signifi-
cant equity success story I have
ever experienced is buying and
owning my company's stock.
While the market was making
gains some-years ago, I was
focused on paying out my
investor rather than discre-
tionary investing. Fast forward
to my post buy-out years and I
am sticking my toe in the water
looking for stock ideas.
Wise people have recom-
mended that people focus on
What they know, so the car busi-
ness seems like a place to con-
sider. Vehicles are as necessary
as toothpaste and will not
become obsolete in my lifetime.
There are three ideas worthy of
consideration and probably oth-
ers that escape me this morning.
The vehicle manufacturers
are the bread and butter starting
point. The industry has been
hammered by the recessionary
environment and seems to be
gaining some traction. In my
research, there are a number of
gurus shorting car stocks,
despitethe recent gains in the
indu j.My thoughts are that
the ^ f vehicles in the United
Statsfind, more importantly
worl4wde, .are going to
increase. Markets like China
pnd Ialia are seeing exploding

car sales, with
China being
the world's
biggest car
market (18
million sales
in 2010).

er stocks, although never a dar-
ling of the equity industry,
should be poised for some
improvement. Do some
research and a few should be
attractive. I will not name names
to remain impartial and because
I am not qualified.
Suppliers are an idea a physi-
cian gave me. He administers
his own practice's retirement

is that suppliers are an automo-

makes sense, and again a liflee

dealership entities are growing
and are another way to go. The
big-box retailers, along with a
few other publicly traded dealer
groups, are there for considera-

these groups are beginning to
buy dealerships again, pushing
the results growth.
Those who are not able to
help the economy by buying a
new car can put some money to
work helping yourself and the
industry. Looking for some
appreciation, you can make a

Andrew has definite ideas

The fourth-grader takes

A US 301 road-widening
and bridge replacement proj-
ect will begin as early as
The roughly $59.6 million
project encompasses a 15-mile
stretch beginning just south
of Callahan at Pickett Road and
continuing north 2.3 miles ipto
Duval County. Eighty-six per-
cent of funds derive from fed-
eral funds, with 14 percent
coming from the state, said
Florida Department of

"We're awaiting permit
approval to turn dirt on the
project," he said. "You'll actu-
ally see activity out there
around the first of November."
Although the construction
project was on the books for a
few years, the design plan was-
n't finalized until August. The
two-lane stretch along U.S. 301
will be expanded to four lanes,
with a divided highway
throughout, with the excep-

The road in that area will be

"Obviously the afternoon
school traffic could be affected
by that," Goldman said.
Construction plans include
replacing 11 bridge structures
built in the 1930s, with six loca-
tions affected. Bridge replace-
ments should not affect
traffic flow because com-
muters will have uninterrupt-
ed accessfrom old to new con-

"As far as the railroad

Forward Fernandina: investment in our community

time what is your
vision for downtown
Fernandina and the
community? The answers
from various groups of citi-
zens over the years have been
fairly consistent. They want a
charming, uniquely historic
downtown where businesses
can and do thrive with assets
like parks and a solid infra-
structure to support them. All
these groups have known
while working on these plans
that downtown Fernandina
and the waterfront is an eco-
nomic driver for this commu-
nity. Downtown is an attrac-
tion to both our residents and
tourists and as such is just as
critical to our economic future
as the mills, the port, beaches
and all the hospitality associ-
ated businesses we are so for-
tunate to have here.
What we've all learned
either from personal experi-
ence or in school is that with-
out a healthy business envi-

ronment in a community, the
burden of paying for City
services that benefit resi-
dents, tourists and businesses
alike is largely carried by resi-
dential property owners. In
Fernandina Beach, for exam-
ple, ad valorem taxes support
public safety as well as the
care and maintenance of 75
miles of public streets, 509 '
acres of parks and 40 beach
accesses. Demographic
trends, reflected ih the City's
Comprehensive Plan, predict
an increase in our average
median age over the next few
years. Logically this means
that there will be a smaller
number of schoolchildren and
young families, which trans-
lates into a smaller workforce
and a larger population of
retirees. If our business com-
munity cannot function

infrastructure or neglect of

A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize estate
taxes. Plus, a living trust may protect your estate if you

"It only takes a minute to pick up a
phone," my dad used to tell me.
When I was growing up, my parents
drummed it into my head that if I was
unable to keep my word to someone,
there'd better be a darn good reason
and I was responsible for contacting that
individual right away to offer not only a
reasonable explanation, but an apology as
It's called courtesy. These days, that sim-
pie concept seems to have

I went about my Saturday chores, antici-

When I hadn't heard anything from the
technician by suppertime, I tried calling but

he'd been distracted by providing comfort

According to the code I was raised with,
this seemed a reasonable explanation.

FRIDAY. Oc'ro1I:R 14,2011 OPINION News-Leader 71


Know your candidates, and vote

In response to article in July regarding our
AARP being "Out of step."
Thank you for your article, this gives me
some more time to talk about some points you
made that I perhaps need to clarify to you and
our readers.
First, the local AARP Chapter #4608 in
Fernandina and Nassau County was one of the
organizations involved in "Coalition for Voters
Education and Participation." I did some
research by going back to my files from before
2000 and found some interesting facts about
our group.
The other organizations involved were:
League of Voters, Supervisor of Elections,
Democratic Executive Committee, Republican
Executive Committee, AIFBY Chamber of
Commerce, Greater Nassau Chamber of
Commerce, AARP Chapter #4608, NAACP -
local chapter, the News-Leader, 'Neighborhood
Assembly Church of Fernandina Beach,
Women's Club of Fernandina, the city of
Fernandina Beach.
The "action steps for voters": (1) Attend
events where candidates will appear and ask
them where they stand on the issues, (2) write
candidates and ask where they stand, (3)
share and discuss the information you receive
at this call or meeting with your family or
friends, write letters to ybur local newspaper
and express your views, (5) call radio talk
shows (note at this time Fernandina had a
radio station), (6) vote very important and is
really the purpose vote and know your candi-
dates, (7) encourage family, friends, others to
participate in the primary elections and of
course the general election. When you have a
political party for candidates involved, attend
caucuses, become involved if you want to
make a difference.
"Our Coalition purpose is to encourage vot-
ers' participation and to help the voters make
a definite commitment exercising their rights
to vote and to elect their candidates" quoted
from 1990 Mission Statement!
Nothing has changed we still urge Voters
to be informed (education) and vote (participa-
tion) in any and all elections: Political? Yes!

AARP forum
The local chapter #4608 of the local AARP
will hold a candidate political forum on
Thursday, Oct. 27 beginning at 7 p.m. at
City Hall, 204 Ash St. Candidates for city
commission will be asked questions by
AARP member panelists. The forum will be
televised live and rebroadcast on the city's
cable television channel. The local chapter
has sponsored such forums since 1998.

Definitely needed? Yes!!
Second comments: On the AARP participa-
tion in getting benefits extras out of the
Obama health care plan: There were questions
raised and many of us expressed our disap-
proval and passage of the bill passed by the
president and Congress. By the way, they
passed that health care bill (not the AARP). By
the same token, the AARP did favor parts of
that bill, as it seemed to protect some of their
senior members. Since then, AARP has been
stating AARP's concerns about savings some
of the items contained in the original bill, pro-
tecting the Social Security system and other
benefits for the seniors.
Words of Wisdom: It's not necessary what
you say, it's what you have done in a positive
Another point I will make: We can all agree
to disagree, which is what we are doing. I have
been a member of AARP since 1984 and have
some advantages I remain a member.
When someone says, they don't agree, not
a member, my reaction "that is your decision."
When Congress and the president passed the
health care bill, our chapter had an interesting
discussion on it sorry you missed it maybe
you were out of town.
The reason I decided to respond lies in so
much has been said about the above, it's time
to. pass on and discuss the more important fact
of life. In the coming month, Fernandina will
be electing its city commissioners for the com-
ing year. As we know, there are two seats
open for this election this fall. Our voters will

be asked to cast their ballots for the best possi-
ble candidate for each position. At our record
of only 10-20 percent of eligible voters partici-
pating in our past elections that is not a
proud thing to take to the commissioners who
have worked very hard and long hours under
these times where hard decisions and money
issues have been necessary.
In the past few weeks, a personal talk with
one of the candidates, the mayor, I discovered
that some of the past decisions made became
extremely hard and necessary to the city of
Fernandina. I learned some of the reasons
that perhaps more of us should check out
before we cast our ballots. The mayor was
extremely open ard candid about why things
have been passed and why it was necessary to
do so. While, there were some points we did
not agree on, she indeed showed her concern
for the city and the values and its citizens.
There is a point to this discussion, and that is
that if we really are concerned to know as
much about why things are sometimes done
and passed, it would be well to ask one on one
with these candidates and find out.
Sometimes, when a job is sought, a new candi-
date thinks he knows all about the issues; he
would be wise to do his homework.
Now, just as the candidate must become
familiar with all the details, so must the voter
do his/her turn at'checking out very carefully
the information needed to make wise choices?
Another candidate was announced and I also
had known some time, he was also knowledge-
able and had a good favorable track record in
private business. While some past city partici-
pation to speak of and long term in private
management, several degrees, in addition he
does provide some very interesting benefits as
a candidate. Since then there are more candi-
dates to talk with and discuss the issues
before the election.'
Again, my purpose is to encourage the vot-
ers to ask questions and receive answers that
you need to know.
Get out and vote, know your candidates
and participate. Be involved. The election is
scheduled for Nov. 8. Vote!

keep going. Thank you. Thank you.

The story about the city repeal-
ing the gun laws (Oct. 7) was well
written for the most part but it had
one major inaccuracy in it. The story
stated that a new law came into
effect on Oct. 1 that prevented local
governments from passing their
own gun laws. That law actually
went into effect in 1987, what went
into effect this year was an amend-
ment to the law that made it possi-
ble to fine local officials who violat-
ed the law. It was necessary to add
that amendment because
Fernandina Beach and other local
governments throughout the state
had been violating the law for the
last 24 years because there was no
consequence for doing so.-It's amaz-
ing how those that pass local ordi-
nances, that they demand everyone
else obey, feel that they are good
enough to pick and choose which
state laws that they will obey.

I have a special needs child. For
three years I have spent many days
at Nassau County public schools
fighting for my child's education.
He has an Individuals Education
Programs (IEP); he qualifies under
Individuals with Disabilities
Education Act (IDEA) and all the
other "government" programs. He's
been in therapy since the day he
was born. I spent first grade in the
classroom as his assistant because
the school didn't provide. In second
grade, I was in the principal's office
fighting for his rights to no avail.
In preparation for his move to
elementary school I spoke with the
principal and the new teachers hop-
ing for something different It didn't
take much to realize elementary
school would be a repeat of primary
school. This was proven to be true
when they eliminated the "inclu-
sion" classes at the elementary
school. I've been told it was due to
budget constraints.

Walter Fufldio
It was with great regret that I
read that Walter Fufidio has cho-
sen to resign from his planning
position with Nassau County
("County's planning director
resigns," Oct. 12).
I recognize his contributions to
improving the major plans for the
county, such as the Nassau County
Vision 2030, the Nassau County
Comprehensive Plan and more.
In addition, I want to thank Mr.
Fufidio for his support of the Amelia
Island and Nassau County Trails
Team work. In particular I thank
him for his continued encourage-
ment and support for ensuring that
a broader plan for Nassau County
Trail Plans were included, along
with our work on the Amelia Island
Trail plans.
I will miss his knowledge of how
good planning should be done and
his ability to work with all organi-
zations interested in making
improvements, to do what is best for
Nassau County.
If at all possible I would hope he
would reconsider his resignation

county could obtain a replacement
that would be as good as he has

Sir Gene inspires through music

greatest of these is charity.
When it's time for your cele-

An appreciation and celebration of
love was given for Sir Gene Dawson on
Saturday evening at the Georgia Avenue
Church of God in Kingsland, Ga., where
Bishop Dr. Arthur Dawson Jr. serves as
Sir Gene is and has been an inspira-
tion to many through his God-given
musical artistic talents as well as
through his "Educational Variety Hour"
TV show. He has a great love for chil-
dren and always gives them thumbs up
for education, always encouraging them
to do their best.
For more than 30 years, he has been
the minister of music at the Georgia
Avenue Church of God. With more than
48 years of playing the organ, piano and
keyboard, self-taught and ordained by
God to be the best in what he does, he is
truly blessed with the gift of music.
When God gives you a gift, no man can
take it away, so use it to glorify Him.
After receiving his training as a child,
he continued at the Capital Church of
God in Washington, D.C. He is a record-
ing artist of cassettes, CDs as well as
DVDs of various gospel musical styles
reaching all ages. His main focus is on

tee((ns, promoting ed t-
cation and making

this far just to leave you. I've had my

faithfulness it's your time to be blessed
because Jesus is the wind beneath your
wings. Searched all over, couldn't find

Sir Gene does not complain, lie kept
on searching until he found the King of

Mom and Pop, who came in from Jesup
to celebrate with him. After marching
with them, his sisters joined in the cele-

being there with him, he gives God the

what He has done and is doing in his
life. To God be the glory and remember,
thumbs up for education.

sent out a recorded shout of love to her,
thanking her for being his mother and
loving him.
A telegram was received from a spe-

Everyone needs encouragement at
times, and the Bible tells us that we
should encourage one another and
build each other up. When we
encourage someone with either our
actions or our words, we are giving
someone hope ahd support by letting
that person know that he or she is
regarded as a valued and respected
, friend. Sometimes, It seems much
easier to discourage rather than
encourage someone. We can always
find fault In someone; however, we
should be looking for the good traits
or behavior that one may possess.
A wise person can correct and
encourage with such skill so as to
not destroy the desire or ambition of
another individual. Being an honest.
encouraging person can be habit
forming, and people enjoy being
around someone whose comments
are positive and non-threatening

FRIDAY, Ocroi'l:R 14,2011/Ncws-Lcadcr


Church dinners, surprises and the

The smell is indescribable. If
you've been to one, you know what
I'm talking about. From steaming
cornbread to homemade goulash,
from pot roast to mustard greens,
there's nothing like a church fellow-
ship dinner. Though I had experi-
enced some when I lived up North, I
had no idea what I was in for when I
moved to the South. In those early
years, as a single man working con-
struction, showing up at a fellowship
dinner was like arriving at heaven's
gate. On one such occasion, I found
myself chewing on more than I had
bargained for.
It happened as I, like so many
others, was making my way down
that blissful line of Southern cook-
.ing. The building we were in, built in
the 1930's, offered just the warmth

It was then that

her secrets. "That's
Nancy," she said,
pointing at one of
the pots on the
counter. Nancy, I
thought, what do
you mean? "That's
Nancy," she said

again, with an innocent yet serious
look on her face. Finally she
explained. Nancy was a goat raised
on the family farm and we were hav-

ing the privilege of eating her.
My original reaction was proba-
bly about like yours right now.
Though I was relieved to find out
that Nancy was an animal, in
all honesty it took me a minute to
adjust to it. The idea of eating a goat
that this little girl had clearly devel-
oped a relationship with was a bit
strange. It wasn't until many years
later that I learned that such a prac-
tice was an integral part of the
Jewish Passover meal, which
reminded them of the sacrifice nec-
essary to set them free.
According to the book of Exodus,
Chapter 12:3-6, the children of Israel
were to choose a male lamb or goat
that was one year old and without
blemish. To insure that it was spot-
less, the family would examine the

FBMS spoils YMShomecoming

The Fernandina Beach
Middle School Pirates spoiled the
homecoming festivities Tuesday
night at Yulee, beating the host
Hornets 42-20.
The Pirates got on the board
early after Chase Karpel sacked
the Hornet quarterback and,
forced a fumble on the game's
second play. Cody Byrd recov-
ered the ball deep in Yulee terri-
tory and Hector Vanlennep
pounded it in to give the Pirates
an early 8-0 lead.
"We challenged our kids to
step up and Chase did that," said
Cam Harrison, head football
coach at FBMS. "He dominated
for most of this game, getting
into the backfield and forcing
After the Pirate defense forced
a punt, an interception thrown by
Brylen Ericksen put Yulee back
on offense. After returning the
interception inside the Pirate 10-
yard linq, the Hornets sti-uck and
cut the lead to 8-6.

Both teams stiffened on

Yulee responded, driving
down-the field and getting a
touchdown of their own to make
the score 16-14.
The Pirate offense found the
Send zone again on their next
drive, this time on a Mitchell 53-
yard run to extend the lead to 22-
14 to end the third quarter.
"We knew we were in for a
fight in the fourth quarter and-we
brought the guys together and
told them to leave it all on the
field. I think they did that,"
Harrison said.
The Pirates scored on the first

play of the quarter as linemen
Marco Vazquez ind Davon
Jennings blew open a hole for
Vanlenfep, who raced 37 yards
untouched to'the end zone to
make the lead 28-14.

play, a 39-yard run to push the
lead to 36-14.
On the next Hornet posses-
sion, an attempted halfback pass
.to the quarterback was intercept-
ed by Kai Pelham and returned
to the Yulee 28-yard line. Kyle
Horgan put the last Pirate touch-
down of the night on the board
on the next play, a 28-yard gallop
to give the Pirates a 42-14 lead.
Yulee was able to score on a
long touchdown run with one
minute left in the game, but the
onside kick was recovered by
Pirate Dylan Jausel to secure the
42-20 victory.

"I am very proud of our per-
formance tonight," Harrison said.
"We challenged the boys to come
back strong after the Callahan
game and they did just that. We
asked the guys to give us all they
had and we had a ton of guys step
up. It was a great team effort."
Mitchell had 178 yards on
nine carries, Vanlennep had 69
on seven and Horgan had 35 on
four to lead the FBMS offense.
Karpel and Mitchell had eight
tackles apiece. Karpel also had
six quarterback sacks arid forced
five fumbles. Pelham had six
tackles: Darriaj Wentworth and
Vanlennep five each; and Tyreke
four. Cody Byrd had three tackles
and recovered a fumble. Mai-shall

home Monday,

Opponents had to earn their wins over the
13-9 Lady Pirate volleyball team this season.
"All of our losses have been to good teams
and we were in every match," said Bobby
Strumlauf, volleyball coach at Fernandina
Beach High School. "If a few points could
have went our way in each match, we could
easily be 17-5 or 18-4. We beat ourselves in a
lot of the matches."
The Lady Pirates lost in five games to
Episcopal, Bishop Kenny and Providence.
"All of those games were dogfights and
could have went either way," Strumlauf said.
"We have also had two wins against Bolles this
season alongwith wins against Mandarin,
Orange Park, Fleming Island and DeLand,
which is No. 3 in the Orlando Sentinel Super
Six Poll."
Leading the Lady Pirates this season in
digs are Alyssa Whitfield (299) and Savannah
Young (260).
"Both are excellent passers who help
anchor our defense," Strumlauf said.
Young leads in kills with 274; Whitfield has
172 and Emmalee Bales 108
"All are strong attackers, who have the
ability to dominate a match," Strunlauf said.
Darby Lane has the most aces With 47;
Young has 35.
"Darby gives a great boost when she is on
with her serve," Strumlauf said. "She can real-
ly run off a bunch of points for us."
Setter Caroline Garner has 530 assists.
"She's averaging around 23 assists per
match," Strumlauf said. "She is an experi-
enced senior with good decision making
skills,-allowing our hitters to get free swings
on the ball."
