SSunken treasure


To clean up

man must

clean up
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Local resident Chris Edenfield
has discovered sunken treasure on
Amelia Island - just not in the way
you might think.
Edenfield, 43, grew up in
Fernandina Beach and returned to
live here last July after a long career
as yacht captain. His dream of
investing in real estate had been
waylaid by the poor market, so he
started investing in shipwreck arti-
facts.
It was last fall when Edenfield
got a call from a broker in Los
Angeles, who asked Edenfield if
he'd like to buy a silver ingot of 58
troy'pounds that was one of the
treasures fiom the 1622 shipwreck
Atocha. The broker told Edenfield
that the ingot had no historical sig-
nificance because there were no
markings on it. Edenfield was able
to buy it only for its silver value, at
$8 an ounce.
According to www.Atocha.com,
Nuestra Senora de Atocha was one
of a fleet of 28 ships that left Havana
for Spain on Sept. 4,1622, all loaded
with gold, silver and jewels from
Peru, Mexico, Colombia and
Venezuela.
The Atocha, which sailed as the
rear guard of the fleet, was loaded
with more than 35 tons of silver
plus 161 pieces of gold, among
many other treasures.
The fleet-was overtaken by a
hurricane the next day, and by
Sept. 6 eight ships had sunk west
of the l,,ri ida Keys. Although 21

Chris Edenfield, above, purchased this silver ingot from the
1622 shipwreck Atocha. He cleaned the coral-encrusted
ingot, below, one of more than 1,000 from the shipwreck,
which weighs 58 troy pounds.

Commissioners OK


Marsh Lakes plan


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commis-
sion approved Monday location of
a commercial development at
Marsh Lakes that could include a
liquor store.
After lengthy and sometimes
heated debate, the commission
voted 4-0 to approve the shopping
center on 9.67 acres. Commission-
er Tom Branan was absent.
Marsh Lakes residents spoke
poiwi t..lh ;,igaini-i th .develop-
ment, primarily noting the traffic on
already congested AlA that will


increase with the new shopping
center.
But the commissioners agreed
their hands were tied legally since
the outparcel was included in the
Marsh Lakes Planned Unit
Development when it was
approved in 1999.
Both the county planning and
zoning board and county planning
staff had recommended approval
for that reason.
Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall elaborated, as she often
does, on all the times and reasons

'Kindness of strangers


aids quadriplegic man


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
An avid outdoorsman, Danny
Spradley spent much of his free
days either fishing, hunting or
enjoying the countryside. That was
before he was paralyzed in a diving
accident in 2006.
Isolated in his parents' non-
handicap accessible home,
Spradley missed his independence.
Thanks to the kindness of several
helpful people, Spradley and his
mother and stepfather, Tami and
Jody Buchan, are finally seeing
light at the end of a dark period in
their lives.


After scrimping and saving to
make it happen, the family is look-
ing forward to moving into a new
site-built modular home on two
acres by summertime.
"It's huge and it will be fully
handicap accessible for Danny,"
Tami Buchan said.
"We want to give our special
thanks to Tammy at Keith David
homes for being so kind to us and
working so hard to make this home
come together for us," she said,
adding that the new home will have
a separate wing for her son.
"Once we get ready to move in,
we're going to need a ramp for
Danny to get in and out of the


house. I'm not sure where that will
come from, but our faith tells us
that it will happen somehow."
A chance encounter with a vis-
itor during the holidays provided
another item on the family's wish
list: a computer.
"I received a phone call fiom a
man (who) said he was passing
through town and picked up a local
newspaper and saw the article on
Danny," explained Buchan.
"He said the statement that
Danny made at the end of the arti-
cle - 'I guess things work out the
way they are supposed to' -

County, the school district must
determine if schools near the pro-
posed development have the capac-
ity for the number of students pro-
jected to move into the community.
The proposed procedure for
determining school concurrency
divides the county into school con-
currency service areas, or "regions
that correspond to current popula-
tion centers" and areas of antici-
pated growth.
Space for new students must be
found within the service area, or a
contiguous area, where proposed
development will occur.
Creating eight service areas
eliminates "long distances for trans-
porting students," Wood said.
A concurrency service area
across the entire school district
"would result in either a lot of trans-
portation time for kids or constant-
ly changing the attendance area
which can be very disruptive," she
said.
If "there is not adequate capaci-
ty available in the school concur-
rency area in which the proposed
development is located or in an con-
tiguous school concurrency area
to support the development, the
school board shall entertain pro-
portionate share mitigation
options," the proposed policy reads.
Mitigation, or -a method of off-
setting the impact of a residential
development, may include school
construction, a contribution of land
and/or infrastructure, a payment
of construction or land acquisition,
or expansion of existing school facil-
ities.
"Chances are that small devel-
opment would fit into the normal
growth pattern of a school," Wood
said. When a development adds
"several hundred students at one
time" the impact becomes more dif-
ficult to absorb, she said.
"If we didn't have school con-
currency" the responsibility for new
schools "would be completely on
the taxpayer," Wood said.
The school concurrency
process means developers share
the responsibility and ensures that
"large developers will not cause
our schools to be grossly over-
crowded," Wood said.

Future meetings are sched-

TREASURE Continued from 1A
ships sailed to the west, bypassing
the hurricane, the Atocha dashed
on a reef and sank with 265 peo-
ple on board. Five sailors were
rescued.
The sunken ship was found in
1985 by treasure hunter Mel
Fisher after 16 years of relentless
searching of the waters off
Key West. It was one of the most
valuable treasure wrecks ever
found.
Edenfield says he was using
the heavy silver piece as a
doorstop when he decided in
November to rinse it in muriatic
acid in an attempt to get the
encrusted coral off. "I just got
.curious about it," he says.
After two or three rinses, he
noticed that the ingot did indeed
have distinct markings. Realizing
he needed some expert help in
conserving and documenting the
ingot, he sent it down to Sean
Fisher, Mel Fisher's grandson, in
Key West.
Sean Fisher says this particu-
lar bar had never been curated or
appraised, nor had it been prop-
erly conserved. Silver that has

been exposed to salt water begins
to deteriorate and eventually turns
into black iron sulfide. By putting
the bar into fresh water with a lit-
tle soda ash and a slight electrical
current - called reverse electrol-
ysis - the metal was stabilized and
the deterioration halted.
Edenfield says he has con-
tacted the Amelia Island Museum
of History about exhibiting the
silver bar, and is looking into sell-
ing it to a maritime museum in
Spain so it can complete its intend-
ed journey. He estimates its worth
somewhere between $30,000-
$100,000.
The' ingot has now been offi-
cially documented as being on the
ship's manifest, and Edenfield
now knows the name of the orig-
inal owner: Carlos Sanchez.
Fisher also noted that the value
of the bar was consistent with the
approximately 1,000 other ingots
found at the Atocha site.
"It's priceless," he said. "It tells
a story about history."

The man, who asked that his
name not be made public, said he
had several computers and want-
ed to give Spradley one of his lap-
tops.
The visitor spent several hours
with the family on Christmas day,
enjoying a home cooked meal and
warm fellowship.
"I just can't thank him enough
for what he did for my son," said
Buchan.
Next on the list of helpful new
friends are Tom and Mary Jane
Smith, who came over a few week-
ends back and introduced them-
selves and brought Danny a desk-
top computer.
"You must understand that
the computer donations are par-
ticularly important for Danny

Buchan.
"He is closed up in that house.

As added encouragement, she
also gave Spradley some audio
books about a quadriplegic who is
a police investigator.
"We first thought he would not
be able to use the computers with-
out some modifications because of
his lack of hand dexterity," said
Buchan. Spradley can move his
hands but not his fingers.
"But he's figured out a way to
use one hand to guide the other

amazing the things he can do. I'm
so proud of him!"
Spradley, who uses the com-

What to do when


times are tough


Every day we are faced with
challenges in our personal and
professional lives. These chal-
lenges are sometimes control-
lable, at least to some degree, but
often are not. Think of it this way:
You are either dealing with a diffi-
cult issue now, or are about to, or
have just finished dealing with
one. Now, don't you feel better?
My point is that challenges are
ubiquitous, and to weather them,
you must not let them steal your
attention.
Your success has everything to
do with where your focus is. The
brain is designed for only one pur-
pose ... to keep you alive! Any
time the mind feels threatened, it
wants to focus on that threat. This
makes sense if the challenge is a
hungry saber-toothed tiger lurk-
ing outside your cave, but not so
much if it's an irate client wanting
to know why last month's invoice
was 20 percent higher than usual.
Non-life-threatening challenges
don't warrant constant fretting.
I am not suggesting that you
adopt a value of carelessness but
rather that you change where you
spend your thought energy. Don't
minimize the reality of life's diffi-
culties. Do approach challenges
with balanced thinking and appro-

County planning board



gets 3 new members


MICflAEL PARNELL
News-Leader


The Nassau County Planning
and Zoning Board has three new
members following county com-
mission appointments Feb. 29.
The new members are Patrick
Keogh and Richard Cinquina from
Fernandina Beach and Patsy
Quaile of Callahan. The commis-
sion earlier voted to expand the
planning board from eight to 11
members.
The commission extended the
expiring terms of three members,
Wynn Fendig, Tom Ford and
Jeanne Scott, and reordered plan-
ning board terms.
Richard King, who is seeking
election as sheriff, resigned as a
board member, and was replaced
by Gene Bennett.
The planning board members
and the expiration date for terms
are:


* District 1 (Fernandina Beach)
Pat Keogh, December 2009
Richard Cinquina,
December 2008
* District 2
(Amelia Island, Nassauville)
Marjorie Weibe-Reed,

* District 4 (Hilliard, Bryceville)

Tom Ford, December 2010
* District 5

Sharyl Wood represents the

for their district wno does not live
there. For example, Commission
Chair Marianne Marshall appoint-
ed Stack even though he doesn't
live in Callahan, and District 2
Commissioner Mike Boyle
appointed Fendig even though he
lives in Yulee.
The commissioners said they
acted to appoint incumbents
outside their district to main-
tain experience on the planning
board.
The planning board was
expanded to both provide greater
diversity and eliminate circum-
stances where a quorum of four
people might make critical deci-
sions on growth issues.
There were more than a dozen
people who submitted written
applications for the new positions.
Quaile did not submit a written
application, but Marshall said she
interviewed her before making
the appointment.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


A huge heart
Re: The death of Roderick A. Henderson ("'Murder'
on Yulee street," March 5).
It seems as if the focus of your article should be the
fact that this young man's life has been taken. Is it
necessary to state that he has been arrested in the past
for different things? Does that warrant his murder? His
past has nothing to do with the now sudden lack of his
future.
The memory of my stepbrother should not be less-
ened by this insignificant and seemingly unimportant
reference at a time like this.
We are all very aware that the statements are cor-
rect However, they do not represent his character as
a caring, generous, young man. There was no mention
of anything positive, but the negative image was high-
lighted. Rod was not the same person that this article
portrayed. Some people have the ability to change and
do more with their lives. He had a huge heart and
cared about others, regardless of his past

Adisgrace
Re: "'Murder' on Yulee Street," March 5.
I am outraged at the write-up on the murder in
Yulee. My question is, what does Mr. (Roderick)
Henderson's past have to do with anything? Why has-
n't there been anything posted about (accused killer)
Mr. (Mohamed Salahudin) Alnajjar?
Mr. Henderson is now gone, he can't hurt anyone,
so bring up things he did over 10 years ago. This is
wrong. If anyone's dirty laundry should be aired, it
should be Mr. Alnajjar. Please let Mr. Henderson rest,
he is no longer a threat to anyone. This is racial dis-
I crimination and a disgrace to the News-Leader.

Senseless murder
Re: "'Murder' in Yulee," March 5.
Contrary to popular belief, racism is still a problem
in our society today. Individuals attempt to deny
the truth but the fact still remains, history hasn't
changed.
On March 3, Roderick Henderson was murdered.
His mom named him Roderick Henderson but the
streets knew him as "LA-Lo." Rod was a phenomenal
human being and everything about him was truly
amazing. Thirty-six hours after his death, the News-
Leader printed the story. They not only smeared his rep-
utation but they showed complete inconsideration for
his family.
The paper wasn't false but was it really necessary
to present his past to his present? This man wasn't
even in the ground yet, and his family was left in tears.
I saw more grown men cry at his funeral than I have
in a lifetime. No one in this world is perfect so how dare
you shatter his reputation? We all make mistakes and
that's a part of life.
We spend so much time seeing the negative in peo-
ple, we sometimes miss the positives. The same indi-
viduals who read the paper are the exact individuals
who will be sitting on his jury. True, Rod wasn't Nelson
Mandela, but that doesn't mean you have the authori-
ty to hand down judgments. Rod was an African
American and some peQple consider his death a gift to
society. That is ridiculous. I won't tolerate it.
.'": This'manrwas loved by many, and it's not fair that
"htheil'diVid'Aladresporiitlecoiild'Walk A ay. lWfs face
it, Rod was a young black male and because of that,
authorities could care less. His body remained on the
ground until around 2 a.m. and I don't give a damn
about an investigation, it was what it was. Racism at its
finest.
Rod was too special to be forgotten and I really
hope the legal system does its job because I would love
nothing more than to stand over their corpses and
smile. Sure, one man pulled the trigger but the other
ones left him to die. Only an immoral monster could do
that. Nassau County needs change, and I won't allow
Rod to be another statistic. His murder was senseless,
and despite the newspaper, he was good person and I


hope the person responsible for that 'article feels
ashamed. -

Fund AlA improvements
The viewpoints of Mr. (Robert) Weintraub ("AlA
safety requires development moratorium," March 5)
and Mr. (Steve) Nicklas ("How to pay for safer roads,"
March 5) unfortunately seem to reflect the overall
sense of helplessness and malaise that has overcome
Nassau County.
To call for a development moratorium as a solution
for congestion is as naive and irresponsible as calling
for abortion as the solution to school overcrowding. No
country has ever improved the standard and quality of
living by not funding basic infrastructure needs of
roads, sewer and water. Perhaps these gentlemen
should take a vacation to Africa or Central America to
see the results of population growth with no infra-
structure to support it.
The role of government is to provide those things
that the individual cannot provide for him/herself. The
improvement ofA1A/SR200 as a major arterial and hur-
ricane evacuation route should be high on the list of
every elected official. The congestion is hardly a "safe-
ty hazard" as all the state needs to do is lower the
speed limit to 45 mph until the road is widened or an
alternative route is built. In addition, Florida has a
safety program for small counties like Nassau County
(FS 339.2818 Small County Outreach Program) that will
pay up to 75 percent of the cost of capacity improve-
ments. What are we waiting for?
The real solution for improving A1A/SR200 is sim-
ple: Find the funding. This requires a proactive effort
by our elected officials to seek both state and federal
funding and then Nassau County can fund the balance
with impact fee trust funds and bonding if necessary.
Or better yet, let's revisit the agricultural exemption
that keeps the assessment of about 40 percent of the
land area of the county at less than $200 per acre.
Nassau is a changing place and continuing to subsidize
a real estate investment trust's vast holding makes no
sense. Proper funding will require a team effort that
should include the city of Fernandina Beach, the Board
of County Commissioners, state Rep. Aaron Bean,
state Sens. Stephen Wise and James King, U.S. Rep.
Ander Crenshaw and U.S. Sens. Bill Nelson and Mel
Martinez. The lack of state and federal funding in
Nassau County shows that the above elected officials
are unaware of the needs of Nassau County.
It is time for all citizens to get involved-and active-
ly pursue positive action from our elected officials.
There's always that Tuesday in November to jog their
awareness.

Who's dumb?
A recent letter ("Dumb and Dumber," Feb. 29)
claimed that Democrats "are so dumb in Florida they
supposedly couldn't figure how to cast a ballot or punch
a chad out."
I conclude from this that the writer feels all ballots
cast in the 2000 election with "hanging chads" were cast
by Democrats and none by Republicans.
He must certainly agree, therefore, that those
Democrat ballots, if they had been counted, would
have resulted in Florida's electorakvotes being given
?to A G-,i e. This would have spared,the United,States,
and the world, from what history will record as the most
corrupt and incompetent U.S. national administration
ever.
. With Gore in the White House instead of George W.
Bush, we would not have squandered the Clinton sur
plus of hundreds of billions of dollars by invading a sov-
ereign country, which had a peaceful society that was
not a threat to us. We would not have had a president
and vice president who lied to the Congress and the
American people about "weapons of mass destruction"
and we would not have sacrificed nearly 4,000 American.
lives fighting enemies that we created.
We also would not have diverted attention from


pursuing the Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden ("We'll
get him dead or alive') and would not have raised fed-
eral spending and the national deficit to historic highs
while reducing taxes for the wealthy and cutting spend-
ing for education and health insurance for our citizens.
We would not be shipping hundreds of billions of dol-
lars to a fractured Iraq while ignoring our own domes-
tic needs.
And we most certainly would not have lost the con-
fidence of the American people and our former friends
and admirers around the world, which has led to the
drop in the value of the American dollar, the specula-
tors profiting in oil futures and our current recession.
"Dumb and dumber" don't describe Democrats.
They describe radical right-wing extremists.

Animal Control
Animal Control has had so much attention these
days, mostly negative attention, but nonetheless atten-
tion.
To me, the real focus here is really not how under-
staffed, underfunded and rundown the facility is.
Instead, the focus needs to be turned back to where the
problem originates: the pet owners of Nassau County.
First off, the pet population would decrease instead
of increase if people would spay and neuter their pets.
Money cannot be an excuse, there are too many pro-
grams out there for the people who cannot afford it.
(River City Community Animal Hospital, (904) 733-
8123, or First Coast No More Homeless Pets (904)
425-0005.)
As for all of the backyard breeders, I say to you, "Get
a real job!" Stop making your income on breeding your
pit bulls. Obviously, you do not realize it, but pit bulls
are the shelter majority.
Another fact that is rarely mentioned is that most of
the animals that are at Animal Control are owner sur-
rendered. This means the pet's owner no longer want-
ed the pet. Pets are not toys from Wal-Mart or jeans
from the mall. When you get tired of them you can't just
simply be allowed to throw them out. Pets are not dis-
posable. A lot of people surrender their pets stating
"behavior problems."These "behavior problems" come
from being tied up in the corner in the backyard, hav-
ing food thrown to them once a day, if that often. Pets
are part of the family. Bring your family member inside!
I also have a thought for you, Sheriff Seagraves. That
"stench" you smelled at Animal Control months ago
when you visited was animal waste ('Time to bring
Animal Control out of Dark Ages," Feb. 13). If it both-
ered you so much the day of your visit, I would like to
know if you have volunteered to help get things cleaned
up? I did not think so. That's right, you are among the
few that believe volunteers have no right to be at the
facility. Perhaps on your next visit you will realize that
you are actually at a homeless shelter and not The
Ritz- Carlton.
In closing, I beg of you, my fellow Nassau County
residents, take responsibility for your own pets. Having
a pet is a lifetime commitment Pets require more than
an occasional bowl of food. They require medical atten-
tion, training, proper nutrition and, most importantly,
a loving home. So, think twice before acquiring a pet
that you can not make that lifetime commitment to.

Charity begins at home
: Our community is very blessed,to haveTheJourrey
Church in our neighborhood. While it is nice to provide
missionary help in other countries, it's a blessing to
know there is a church ready to assist local needs.
This past weekend The Journey Church had a "No
Sale/Yard Sale." People could walk through the church
parking lot and select whatever they needed free of
charge. I noticed clothing, kitchen supplies, books and
40 pounds of food free to anyone who needed these
items.
We are very fortunate to have the Rev. Darryl Bellar
in our community taking care of local needs.

Another


marina


oil spill

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A second fuel spill at an Amelia
Island marina in less than two
months may lead to fines and/or
sanctions, according to LL Michael
Moss of the U.S. Coast Guard.
The most recent spill happened
Sunday at Amelia Island Yacht
Basin when a coupling - the part of
the fuel pipe where two pipes
are linked - broke, releasing about
146 gallons of gasoline into the
water.
Moss said marina employees
worked with Nassau County Fire
Rescue workers, the Coast Guard
and Moran Environmental Services
to clean the spill, and the Coast
Guard has ordered the marina not
to replace the coupling.
It is the same coupling that
broke in January: that spill released
about 180 gallons into the water.
"We have ensured that this time
(the piping) will not go back in serv-
ice until they determine and fix
what caused the failure," Moss said.
"... Accidents do happen, but this
has happened twice."
Moss said the business owners
hired Moran Environmental
Services to assist with the cleanup
and fixing the problem.
Moss said sanctions against the
business "could be forthcoming,"

but he declined to elaborate.
The first spill was Jan. 20, also
on a Sunday, and according to offi-
cials was quickly contained.
. Moss said this spill also was
quickly contained; Tuesday morn-
ing he said the cleanup was com-
plete, but some absorbent materials
had been left in the water to catch
any residual fuel.
Moss said he believes environ-
mental damage was minimal, but
added that "any time fuel is spilled
into the water, there is some kind
of damage."
Moss said everyone involved,
including marina management and
employees, was "doing their part"
to ensure the spill was completely
cleaned and would not happen
again.

"Baptist Nassau keeps getting better,


and the whole community benefits."

Rick Keffer, Femandina Beach


Rick Keffer knows Baptist Nassau inside and out - as a grateful patient several
years ago, and now, as a member of the Board of Directors. "People often take
a community hospital for granted," he says. "I used to, but not any more.
With a state-of-the-art new building, more physicians will want to practice
in our community."

The new two-story building will have a larger intensive care unit and comfortable,
family-friendly, all-private patient rooms. Outstanding care and compassion
will remain our highest priority,-as evidenced by Baptist Nassau's recent
recognition as a Magnet�m hospital, the highest possible accolade for excellence
in patient care.

The new building is a huge investment in our community and needs
community support. To learn how you can help, call Trish Dooley, Director
of Development, 321.3807, or visit us online at e-baptisthealth.com/nassau.

The right of passage


PAT FOSTER-TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
The Three Stooges river otters have been visiting retention ponds around Amelia Island for at
least the last five years.

"Son, I've taught you all I know
about making your living. This
place isn't big enough for all of us.
It's time you struck out in the world
on your own," Mom chirped. And,
with a forlorn last look back, ado-
lescent Harry Otter headed out.
Like his own father before him,
and his father's father before that,
Harry was facing his rite of pas-
sage. In order to fulfill his life's mis-
sion of finding his own mate and
fathering his own offspring, Harry
needed to find a new area with no
resident male otter to chase him
away.
Harry galumphed on, alone for
the first time in his life, past the
borders of the world he had known
all those months with his sisters
and Mom. Now, in uncharted ter-
ritory, luckily there were signposts
along the way.
Other otters before Harry had
left their scent marks at regular
intervals along the creek's edge,
usually on a well-situated log, or a
clump of grass.
Although the territory was new
to him, some of the smells were
not. "It's Dad! I smell that Dad has
been here, just days ago!" Harry
met his father a few times during
his year with Mom. Dad dropped
by for. brief visits, and played with
Harry and his sisters, but only for
awhile. Mom didn't want to share
her cubs with anyone, even their
Dad.
Harry knew that his Dad would
recognize him, and would be kind


to him his
whole life
whenever
they met up.
But now
k Harry was not
interested in a
reunion. What
he wanted was
his own space,
Pat a space with
no other male
Foster-Turley otters, plenty
.d . An of fresh water
WILD WAYS and fishy prey
and, yes, the
smells of a
delectable young female awaiting
his arrival. Harry kept going.
But then, in front of him was an
obstacle he had never even imag-
ined. An endless concrete runway
with huge zooming metal boxes
blocked his path.
For hours Harry studied the sit-
uation, hidden in a culvert beside
the road. Nothing his Mom had
taught him prepared him for this
monumental hurdle. What to do?
He couldn't go back to his Mom -
she made that clear. And Dad was
too busy, no doubt, trying to win
again Mom's favors to tend to his
grown son.
Like a young solder going off to
war, Harry was frightened, but hor-
mones prodded him into action.
Regardless of the risks involved,
Harry had to fight this battle and
move on. For him, his rite of pas-
sage was to win the right to pass.


WildWays tours
Kevin McCarthy of Amelia River Cruises and News-Leadercolum-
nist Pat Foster-Turley are again teaming up to offer two new Wild
Ways tours.
Tours of Florida State Parks' Martins Island and the waterways
around it are scheduled Tuesday, March 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30
p.m. and Sunday, March 30 from 10 am to 1 p.m.
Tours from Tiger Creek to Beach Creek are scheduled Tuesday,
April 22 from 10 a.m. to 1 p m. and Sunday. April 27 from 1-4 p.m.
All tours depart from the Fernandina Beach city marina. Tickets
are $38 plus tax per passenger. Soft drinks are provided and pas-
sengers are encouraged to bring their own lunches or snacks
Space is limited on all tours To reserve a spot, e-mail patandbucko
@yahoo.com or call 261-9972.


With a sudden streak of
courage, Harry jumped into the
fray amid the speeding hulks.
Could he make it across this gaunt--
let into a life of maturity and live to-
mate and father his own cubs? As
with any soldier, a combination of
luck and intelligence would cast
his fate. But the odds are stacked
against him.
In and around Amelia Island
some otters do manage to cross.:-
our roads, but as these roads chan-
nel increasing numbers of vehicles,
past legal capacity, it is not only,
humans suffering increased delays
and more accidents that are affect-
ed. The otters, and bobcats and
deer and opossums and gopher tor-:;
toises and raccoons, all face the
ordeal Harry faced and much more
often than before. More traffic on
the road means more chances to,
get hit by cars, Less wild habitat
and more human development
means longer distances to travel-,
to find a suitable territory, with
more and more roads to cross in
between. The Harrys of the world
today face harder battles, and more
of them, than their fathers before
them.
I don't know how many otters.
this past month did make it across
our crowded highways, and hope-'
fully our friend Harry is one of
them. And hopefully all Three:
Stooges are still alive and well. But'
maybe not.
I now know of four otters that
didn't survive this rite of passage in
the past few months. One dead
otter was found on Cashen Wood
Drive - in the Three Stooges home
range. The Three Stooges have not-
been reported to me since. (If you
see them, please let me know.)
Another dead otter was found on
Atlantic Avenue by the Egans
Creek Greenway. Still another was
found on Front Street near the.
shrimp docks.
A fourth was found opposite the
entrance to Marsh Lakes, where'
the vegetation has been thinned
for a potential new strip mall All.
-four otters were killed by cars.
That's already twice more than I'
heard of all last year.
Add to this the countless rac-
coons, opossums, squirrels and the
rest that get killed by cars and
increasingly it seems like our
wildlife no longer has the right of,
passage. Here's to all their furry:
little souls, gone forever.

Storm damage in Callahan


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

Reports of wind damage near
CR 108 and River Road in Callahan
Friday lead local emergency man-
agement officials to believe a tor-
nado may have touched down.
But they won't know for sure
until someone from the National
Weather Service is able to inspect
the damage, according to Nassau
County Emergency Management
Director Nancy Freeman.
A possible tornado touchdown
in that area was reported to Nassau
County 911 dispatch about 11:15
a.m. Friday.
Damage, including a carport
ripped from a home and a missing
barn roof, was reported about 20
minutes later.
On Friday evening, a damaged
mobile home was reported in
Nassauville, but Scott West, with
Nassau County Emergency
Management, said the tenants said
they did not need help and the
report was not. verified; thedam-
aged carport it (Likahan wiys'aeve'
verified either- West said he drove
around and asked people in the
area trying to find it, but was unsuc-
cessful.
Freeman said no injuries were


reported and the storm system that
put Nassau County under a torna-
do watch for most of the morning
pushed north into Camden County,
Ga.
'There was a pretty big system
that just moved through the coun-
ty, through Callahan and the edge
of Hilliard," said Freeman.
Freeman said a damage report
would be made to the National
Weather Service, and NWS inspec-


tors would be able to determine
whether it was caused by "a
cyclonic type of wind or a direct
line of wind" and if an actual funnel
cloud touched down.
On Monday, West said he had
sent pictures of the damaged barn
roof and the surrounding area to
NWS. inspectors, but it had not yet
been determined whether it was a
tornado that caused the damage.

FIREPLACE FIRE


SUBMITTED
A problem with a fireplace allowed heat or flames to extend into the wall cavity of a two-
story home located in the 1800 block of Sycamore Lane on Saturday. Fernandina Beach and
Nassau County firefighters responded about 1:35 p.m.
Firefighters inside the structure confirmed a liquid propane gas fireplace fire with probable
extension to the second floor and attic space above.
Resident Peter Von Dyck said there had been a birthday party at the home until about
12:30 p.m. and the fireplace had been turned off after guests smelled plastic burning. Later
he noted flames and discharged a portable fire extinguisher while his wife called 911.
The fire was declared out about 2:30 and crews remained cleaning up for another hour.

WEDNESDAY. MARCH 12. 2008 NEWS News-Leader


POLICE REPORT


This was written by Shannon
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office, the
city of Fernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.
Arrest indicates suspicion of a crime,
not guilt.
Anyone with information about
criminal activity can contact the
"We Tip" program, 1-800-78
CRIME, to leave anonymous tips.
Boy robbed
at gunpoint
A 16-year-old Fernandina Beach
boy reportedly was robbed at gun-
point in the parkihg lot of the
Department of Children and
Families office at 1303 Jasmine St.
last week.
The boy told police he left a
nearby convenience store about
9:30 p.m. March 4 and was walking
toward the DCF parking lot - locat-
ed behind the convenience store-
when two men approached him.
One of the men pointed a gun at
him and told him to "give up every-
thing he had on him," according
to the police report.
The boy said he gave the man
all of his cash, approximately $120,
and then both men "fled the area on
foot northbound on South 13th
Street with a group of other
unknown males that were off in
(the) distance."
Police searched the area but did
not find any suspects. They. will
idview the store's surveillance
video for clues. The case is still
under investigation. The victim told
police he couldn't remember much

about what the suspects looked
like, though he did say one man
was wearing a white mask that cov-
ered part of his face.
Another robbery was reported
Friday evening by a Fernandina
Beach man who said he was riding
his bike on 11th Street, returning to
his truck parked behind a gas sta-
tion on 11th Street, when he was
approached by a man who asked
him where "Brian'" was.
The victim, 47, said he told the
man he didn't know whom he was
' talking about. He said the suspect
then asked for his keys and when
he refused, hit him in the back of
his head, in the face - knocking"
him to the ground - and kicked
him in the chest and head. The vic-
tim said he heard another man tell
the suspect to stop, and the sus-
pect left the scene.
The victim said the suspect was
a black man with dark skin and a
gap between his front teeth. The
victim was able to identify him in a
photo lineup, but told police "he
was unsure of the person he picked
due to him not being able to see the
gap between (the suspect's) teeth."
The case is under investigation.
Thefts at school
Two thefts - of cash and a
walkie-talkie - were reported last
week from Yulee Primary School.
On March 3, employees reported
a walkie-talkie stolen from the front
office. An office worker gave police
the names of two individuals, a
man and a male juvenile, who'd
been in the office just prior to the
discovery that the walkie-talkie
was missing.

The man was in the office pick-
ing up his son, who is a student at
the school; the employee said the
man and his companion were the
"only people in the office during
the time the walkie-talkie disap-
peared, and another woman said
the man told her that he'd "always
wanted" a walkie-talkie.
Investigators contacted the man
and the juvenile, a student at
Fernandina Beach High School.
Both denied any knowledge of the
theft, as did the man's eight-year-
old son. The case is being investi-
gated. The walkie-talkie was worth
an estimated $170.
The following day, $361 was
reported stolen from a cash box
in the cafeteria. According to
police, it was money collected by
the YMCA. That theft is also being
investigated.
Banned items found
A California tattoo artist
charged with the murder in 2003 of
19-year-old Travis Pittman now
faces additional charges of intro-
duction of contraband into a deten-
tion facility and criminal mischief
after a detention deputy reported-
ly found several banned items -
including ink pens, a clipboard and
a cigarette lighter - in his cell at the
Nassau County Jail.
According to a report, the items
were found Sunday during a search
of Michael Perry Cleveland's cell.
A teabag made from a kitchen hair-
net and colored pencils were other
items found in his cell; all except
the pencils were confiscated.
Cleveland's bed mat also had a "slit
in it where he had cut it open to
store contraband and attempted to
sew it back up," police said. The
bed mat was also confiscated.
Cleveland, 29, of Lake Isabella,
Calif., has been held without bond
at the Nassau County Jail since his
arrest on April 26, 2006.


Deputy in accident
A Nassau County Sheriff's
deputy was involved in a traffic
accident early Monday that
involved a tractor-trailer.
No one was injured when
Deputy Rodney Lance McConnell,
driving his patrol vehicle, report-
edly struck the truck on ALA imme-
diately after he turned left out of the
sheriff's office headquarters park-
ing lot heading west. The truck,
driven by 47-year-old Joey Allen
Padgett of Baldwin, was also trav-
eling west.
McConnell is considered the at-
fault driver, according to a report of
the accident, which happened
about 2:52 a.m. Both McConnell
and Padgett were wearing their
seatbelts.
Per department policy,
McConnell was tested for drugs
and alcohol, although the accident
report indicates it is believed nei-
ther driver was under the influence
of drugs or alcohol.
Drug bust
Throughout last week, the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
took part in a statewide drug bust
called "Operation Byrne Blitz"
headed by the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement.
The operation resulted in the
arrest of 12 individuals on felony
drug charges and the seizure of 12
marijuana plants. The suspects
arrested were:

A 23-year-old inmate who
escaped police custody last month
while being prepared for transport
from the hospital to the jail has
pleaded not guilty to charges stem-
ming from that incident.
He also pleaded not guilty to pos-
session of cocaine and less than 20
grams of marijuana, which led to
his arrest in the first place.
John Kevin Davis Jr. was arrest-
ed Feb. 15 on the drug charges after
a vehicle in which he was a pas-
senger was pulled over by police
and he was searched. Davis was
then taken to Baptist Medical
Center Nassau for treatment of a
possible cocaine overdose.
Hours later, as a deputy was
helping him change from his hos-
pital gown to a jail-issued jumpsuit,
Davis ran from the hospital and
managed to hide from law enforce-
ment officials for several hours,
prompting the shutdown of local
schools and daycares. Police later
found him in the trunk of a vehicle
during a traffic stop in Nassauville.
While he was out of .custody,
Davis allegedly got into the vehicle
of an acquaintance he saw in the
hospital parkinglot and asked him
to drive - the acquaintance refused

The Nassau Humane Society is
one step closer to having its own
"forever home" after 22 years.
A capital campaign is under way
to raise at least $843,000 for an
adoption center on 2.8 acres of city
property, Dave Coyle, president of
the Nassau Humane Society, told a
crowd gathered for the ground-
breaking Feb. 22 of the non-profit's
dog park.
'The Nassau Humane Society
has been around since April 1986
and we've never had a home of our
own," said Coyle. 'This is the
beginning of phase 1."
The dog park, near the Humane
Society's current Airport Road
shelter, should be completed by
the end of May, said Coyle.
The park was the idea of Mayor
Bill Leeper, who attended the
groundbreaking ceremony and
recalled the city retreat two years
ago when he first broached the
subject.
"I said I would like to see the
city build a dog park, and the other::
commissioners laughed at me," he
said. "But they are not laughing
now."
The land for the Humane-
Society projects is leased from the
city, which recently renewed its:
contract with the agency for ani-
mal control services at $108,000 a-
year.
City Manager Michael
Czymbot called it "a classic exam-
ple of a not-for-profit and the city.
getting together to build some-
thing."
"We have a very cooperativez-
relationship with, the Humane-
Society," said Czymbor. "We're-
very happy with the work they do."-
Now that the dog park is fund-:
ed and under way, the focus is turn-
ing to the new adoption center,-
which will feature a 30- by 20-foot
cat house, 2,200 square feet for,
kennels, 2,450 square febt for office-
space and "Key West style" archi- t
tecture.
The center will be outfitted with
an operating room, providing not
just spaying and neutering, said
Coyle, but down the road also a
clinic for after hours emergencies
- which would be a first for
Fernandina Beach and the county.
Currently, residents with pet emer-
gencies often have to take their
animals to Jacksonville, he noted.
Plans are also to establish an ani-
mal blood bank, he said.
There will be a lab/post sur-
gery area and an adoption confer-
ence room, where prospective own-
ers can have some one-on-one time
with a pet
The design also is aimed large-
ly at improving life for dogs in the
shelter, with six 12- by 12-foot out-
door kennels where they can get
fresh air, said Coyle. "We like to
rotate the dogs outside. It cuts
down on eye infections and respi-
ratory infections," he said. There
will also be 40 inside kennels with
outside runs, all surrounding a
large grassy courtyard with walk-
ways.
If it can raise $1 million, the
Humane Society hopes to double
that number to 80 to 100 kennels,
said Coyle. 'There's a lot of flexi-
bility in our lot plan and size," he
said.
The design is such that half the
kennels also could be closed off to
conserve heat or air conditioning
when the building is not full, said
Coyle.
The cat house is at the back of
the property and features windows
on every wall and a large porch
where they can roam, play and look
outside.
Eventually, the Humane Society
hopes to turn the facility into a
money making endeavor, with a
doggie day care and perhaps even
boarding services.
'"When the whole thing is done
it will be a nice animal complex,"
said Coyle.

Chalk up

20078 to an

investment

ofheartfor

young Gators
Barring a Southeastern
Conference
Tournament
Championship next
weekend, which would be
nothing short of a miracle
given the makeup of this
year's squad, the Florida
Gators will likely miss the
NCAA Tournament for the
first time in 11 seasons.
With that said, the Gators'
absence in The Big Dance
won't be the result of a lack of
effort.
Billy Donovan's boys -
and yes, they are boys when
you consider that four who eat
up a lot of court time were
playing high school basketball
at this time last year - might
not yet be SEC-caliber basket-
ball players. But the grit they -
displayed down the stretch
against what will likely be a
No. 1 tournament seed in
Tennessee and against
Kentucky at Rupp Arena
Saturday is a good sign for
when the Gators finally do
come of age.
Florida jumped out to big
leads against the Volunteers
and Wildcats, only to have
their early efforts willed away
by better teams with more
experience. But when their
double-digit leads turned into
double-digit deficits, the
Gators continued to scratch
and claw and found them-
selves in a position to win with
just seconds remaining in each
game.
Heart doesn't win champi-
onships, but it doesn't hurt to
have five guys pouring it on
when defeat is imminent. This
Florida squad, based on its
play, doesn't deserve to be in
the NCAATournament. But
the heart the Gators displayed
down the stretch might just
prove to be the initial invest-
ment of a championship team
someday ...
On to some college foot-
ball, did you see where a 12-
year-old applied for the head
coach position at West
Virginia? Joshua Irizarry of
Connecticut outlined his job
skills in anapplication, one
being the keen ability of "mak-
ing up new plays to fool
defenses in local sandlot
games."
Hey, maybe they should
have given the kid a shot.
After all, one of college foot-
ball's greatest minds, South
Carolina Head Coach Steve
Spurrier, made his name by
drawing plays up in the sand...
Gone, apparently, are the
ho-hum days of college foot-
ball spring games. At Florida,
not only will ESPN's College
Gameday be on site for the
April 12 "showdown" between
the Orange and the Blue, but
Head Coach Urban Meyer
plans to include the student
body in the festivities.
Some lucky candidates will
get the opportunity to race the
likes of Percy Harvin, Louis
Murphy and Chris Rainey,
who all have recorded 40-yard
dash times in the neighbor-
hood of 4.3 seconds. I'd say
there's probably a fair chance
that anyone who outruns
those guys will have a jersey
and a locker by the fall...
New York Giants Head
Coach Tom Coughlin recently
inked a four-year $21 million
contract, making him one of
the highest paid coaches in
the NFL. Six months ago,
when Coughlin's 2007 team
came out of the gate at 0-3,
New Yorkers were ready to
bounce the former
Jacksonville coach out of the
Big Apple.
Of course, that was before
the Giants turned into giant
killers and smacked New
England for a World
Championship. It will be inter-
esting to see whether
Coughlin can sustain his
recent success or if New
York's big pay out turns out to
be just a knee-jerk reaction.

Pirates 1-1


Saturday

BETH JONES
News-Leader
The weather forced the Pirates
to squeeze two games in Saturday
on their annual trek south. The
Pirates (5-4) blew a lead late in the
game to fall 10-9 to Winter Haven,
but rebounded to hammer Lake
Wales 15-5.
"We continue to blow leads late
in the game," said Ken Roland,
head baseball coach at Fernandina
Beach High School. "In the sixth
inning, we held a9-1 lead and man-
aged to allow them back in the
game. We carried a 9-6 lead into the
seventh inning and let Winter
Haven score four runs to win.
"It is very disappointing to fall
apart like this in games and allow
other teams to come from behind
and take a victory from us. This is
the third game that we have held
leads in the last inning and ended
up with a loss.
"We should have put this game
away before the fifth inning. Poor
execution defensively as well as
not making big pitches is keeping
us from putting teams away. Offen-
sively, we sat on this big lead and
did not do anything to extend our
lead."
Jarrod Carlton had two hits,
including a home run. Jeff Day also
had two hits and the Pirates got
one apiece from Hunter Daniel,
Tyler Womble, Robert Martin and
Justin Day.
. Justin Day was the Pirates'
hurler through six innings. He
allowed six runs on seven hits and
two walks. He struck out four.
Carlton took the loss and is 1-3 on
the season. He gave up.four runs
on two hits, walked two and struck
out one.
The Pirates then traveled to
Lake Wales for game two.
"I am proud of our team for
coming back and winning game
two by a score of 15-5," Roland said.
"It would have been easy to let the
disappointment of game one carry
over, but they accepted the chal-
lenge and came out strong. Good
pitching by Myles Rabant and good
offensive production early in the
game gave us the win."
Lake Wales got on the score-
board first, pushing three runs
across the plate in the bottom of
the first inning.
The Pirates answered in the top
of the second, scoring 12 runs on
seven hits and three errors. They
left one runner on base.
Rabant is now 2-0 on the sea-
son. He threw five innings, allowing
five runs on six hits, walking five
and striking out two. Andy Bowles
pitched the last inning. He gave up
no runs or hits and walked just
one.
The Pirates had 13 hits on the
night. Harrison Yonn and Jeff Day
had three apiece. Yonn and Justin
Crews both had doubles. Martin
had two hits and Womble, Carlton,
Justin Day and Trent Luman all
had one hit apiece.
Yonn and Martin had three
RBIs on the day. and Womble and
Crews knocked in two runs each.
The Pirates host Bolles at 7 p.m.
Friday and Ware County Saturday
at 1 p.m.
Yulee is still 8-0. The Hornets'
Friday matchup with Bolles, was
canceled because of the inclement
weather. The Hornets had a make-
up game Monday against Trinity
Christian and the Bolles game will
be made up March 21 at Bolles.
First pitch is at 6 p.m.
Tonight Yulee hosts St. Johns
Country Day School at 6 p.m. The
Hornets host Hilliard Friday at 7

Yulee's girls softball team lost
14-7 to Baldwin March 3. The

night for Yulee, a two-run homer.

WEDNESDAY. MARCH 12.2008 / NEWS-LEADER


OUTDOORS








Pictureth is.


about catching a big
fish is taking its picture.
However, time and time
again, fishermen are simply so
excited about landing a big fish,
they simply do not take the time
to take that once-in-a-lifetime
photo. And oftentimes when a
photo is taken, the proper steps
are not taken to ensure that the
picture is taken correctly.
I have personally taken thou-
sands of fishing pictures during
my many years of catching game
fish. Unfortunately even today,
while using my expensive digital
camera, I will look at the results
and wish that I had taken the
time to take a better picture.
My favorite fishing picture by
far, which I have blown up and
framed in my Amelia Angler
store, is the one that was taken
on April 19, 1907. Local fisher-
men, businessmen, a local boy
and even Judge Rhydon Mays
Call are pictured with 36 black
drum and six red drum weighing
an impressive 1,800 pounds.
The person who snapped the
picture made sure all the fish and
the fishermen were centered in
the photo and there was good
light on the subjects, making this
a fishing photo of a lifetime.
Another photo that I have
used in the News-Leader time and
time again is the one of shrimp
boat Capt. Dennis Scott and a 15-
foot thresher shark. This is also
an excellent photo, which was
more than likely taken by one of
the mates on the shrimp boat
"Naughty Lady." The "Naughty
Lady" shrimp boat was owned by
George and Betty Scott and cap-
tained by their son, Dennis Scott.
Dennis Scott has since retired
from the fishing business with a
new job and the "Naughty Lady"
has been sold.
Amelia Island resident Rudy
Campanale recently gave me a
great photo of himself and two
sons, Paul and Rudy Jr. The fish
in the photo is a huge 49-pound
striper Campanale landed during
a fishing trip off Long Island in
June of 1963.1 actually cropped
the photo, because both boys
were wearin g'ny tftir under-
wear. This produced a great fami-


ly photo, but
I'm not sure
if his sons
would appre-
ciate me put-
ting a pic-
ture of them
in my fishing
column
wearing only
Terry Lacoss their under-
wear.
.----- * Campa-
OUTDOORS nale caught
this once-in-
a-lifetime striper while trolling a
large "bunker" spoon on 30-
pound fishing tackle. Great
photo, Rudy!
Today digital cameras have
greatly improved the way we
take fishing pictures. In fact, digi-
tal cameras last much longer
when used in a saltwater environ-
ment than the older film cam-
eras. I have been using an
Olympus digital camera for some
seven fishing seasons now and it
has never stopped working.
However, the old film cameras t
have used around saltwater
rarely lasted more than two
years before they had to be
repaired. The problem with film
cameras is that you will have to
open the camera to change the
film, exposing the working parts
to a saltwater environment.
Another great factor with the
new digital cameras is you can
actually see your subject oui a
large viewfinder before taking
the picture. If the picture comes
out poorly, simply delete the
photo and take another one.
Fishermen don't have to wait
to have photos developed with
digital cameras. They can be
quickly downloaded into your
computer. Photoshop can actual-
ly allow you to improve the quali-
ty of your fishing picture. Your
fishing photo can be printed onto
photo paper or e-mailed to your
fishing buddies all in the same
day.
The best fishing pictures are
taken early or late in the day
when the sun is shinning directly
on your.subject. If you have to
take a picture with poor sunlight,
be sur to use a l1ash Also ask "
your subjects to remove their


sunglasses, turn their heads
slightly, smile and hold the fish
towards the camera and head-
first. Continue to take photos of


Pictured above, from
right, are Edward
Williams, Capt. Robert
Downes, the Rev.
Glass, Mr. Moody,
Capt Jones Davis, an
unidentified fisherften,
Judge Rhydon Mays
Call, William Bell and
an unidentified boy.
This photo is by far one
of the more famous
Fernandina Beach fish-
ing pictures. Left,

with a huge thresher
shark, taken years ago
by the "Naughty Lady"
shrimp boat. Right,

Beads, andnow yarn,


You cannot miss the dis-
tinctive little brilliant
blue VW bug parked in
front of Mary Dyer's
Eighth Street shop, Beadlemania.
From the shop's earliest day, her
distinctive little car with its
Beadlemania sign has been a
portable billboard for her store.
After passing the shop many
times, I finally pulled in, parked
and walked into the shop and
plunked down a small bag of
beads collected from my travels.
The shop literally sparkled with a
full inventory of beautiful beads
of all sizes and shapes, including
Swarovski crystals. My mission
was simple. I would drop off my
beads and she would make me
beautiful necklaces. Dyer's eyes
twinkled, as she said why didn't I
just come over to the worktable
and do it myself?
So Dyer looked at my assort-
ment of beads and led me to the
supplies needed to complete a
project. Soon I was at the color-

Although gopher tortoises can
live to be 40 to 60, they have
been decimated by habitat
destruction, human predation and
increased vehicular traffic. This
decline is even more tragic
because the gopher tortoise is a
keystone species: their burrows
provide shelter for many other
animals, thus helping those
species survive. Learn more

gopher tortoise in the Amelia
Island ecosystem. Refreshments
will be served.

CATS ANGELS


Freckles' foster mom says this about him:
"Freckles is a very affectionate cat. When he
isn't out on my porch he follows me from
room to room and every time I sit down he is
at my knee, reaching up for me to pick him
up and pet him. I get purrs and 'kitty biscuits'
non-stop. I also have another foster male cat
and Freckles is constantly trying to be friends
with him - so far, no luck. Freckles loves to
play with a ball, small toy mice and my short
rod with a long string and a small rag at the
end. But Freckles does have a problem. He
was part of a feral colony that I was feeding
and learned to trust me. Now he needs to go
to his 'forever' home and learn other humans
are caring also. I don't believe it will take
much to get him to transfer his affections. He
is a young cat and hates being by himself."
You can see Freckles and the many other
cats and kittens Cats Angels has in its pro-
gram by calling 321-3367. Our March


Madness adoption special is $75, which
includes testing, spay/neuter and current vac-
cinations.
The Thrift Store on Eighth Street is open
Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Proceeds benefit the Cats Angels spay/neuter
program. Donations are always appreciated
during business hours. Volunteers are also
always welcome.
