Plans evolving for


expanded rec center


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


Three new buildings will be
added to the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center, according to
Nan Voit, recreational director for
the city of Fernandina Beach.
An "educational pavilion" of 500
square feet will be erected at the
entrance to Egans Creek
Greenway. A 2,400-square-foot
aquatics multipurpose building will
be going up directly behind the
pool. And a 3,800-square-foot multi-
use teen center will be located east
of the existing building. Also, an
expansion of the Amelia Room will
add four bathrooms to the facility.
The expansion is necessary,
Voit said, because services and pro-
grams are at overcapacity and
more residents are being put on
waiting lists.
Architectural designs for the


additional buildings were com-
pleted by Kenneth R. Smith
Architects of Jacksonville and will
match the existing structure. Dave
Luke, an architect with Kenneth
Smith, estimated the cost for the
youth/teen center would be about
$800,000>$900,000, and cost to build
the aquatic center would be about
$350,000. He said it was harder to
guess at the cost for the pavilion
because the anticipated site work
includes a textured-block finish,
decking, wood beams and other
details.
The aquatics building will have
room for swim teams, educational
classes and a concession stand,
said Voit The other multi-use build-
ing will be for youth programs and
a teen center with amenities like air
hockey, pool tables, couches and
an ice cream bar. Teens will be

Last year for


Bausch & Lomb



tennis tourney


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
After 22 years, Bausch & Lomb
will no longer sponsor the Amelia
Island women's professional ten-
nis tournament. Organizers are
seeking a new title sponsor for the
2009 tournament.
A new sponsor would be
required to sign at least a two-year
contract at a minimum of $450,000
a year. Organizers are optimistic
despite the challenge of luring a
new sponsor in a faltering economy.
But the .prospective loss of the


tennis tournament is sobering. That
would not only harm the local econ-
omy directly - tournament week
fills hotels, bed and breakfast estab-
lishments and restaurants, and
draws visitors to Amelia Island
Plantation and downtown.
It also is one of the island's pre-
mier events, garnering worldwide
publicity. ,
"Bausch & Lomb is a great
event for us. It's one of the three or
four signature events on the island,"
said Gil Langley, managing director

A "green" dwelling has a twofold way of rewarding
its owner: It helps the owner save money on energy
bills while at the same time cutting down on the actu-
al energy that is used, thereby benefiting both the envi-
ronment and the community.
Having a green-certified house only adds about 2-
5 percent to final homebuilding costs, according to J.P
McClellan, the county representative for the Florida
Green Building Coalition.
But homeowners who opt for Earth-friendly can
recoup some of those initial costs by tax rebates for
many green products. Other products and features pay
for themselves over time.
McClellan, who has been involved in developing
Amelia Park since 1999, says the notion of "green"
development was never clearly defined until a few

years ago. Now, however, homeowners who want
their houses to be green-certified can use a checklist
from the Florida Green Building Coalition to make
sure every part of their home, inside and out, meets
minimum requirements.
Using innovative products such as tankless water
heaters and specially filmed windows to filter bright
light, houses are rated using a Home Energy Ratings
Service, which scores each aspect of a house for a total
of 100 points in order to be green-certified.
McClellan says that common sense should dic-
tate a structure's relationship to the environment,
resulting in a natural kind of energy efficiency. One
free, low-tech way of achieving some energy effi-
ciency involves the placement of the house in relation
to the sun and climate. This includes how the house
and its windows are situated as well as shade factors

WEDNESDAY. MARCH 19.2008 NEWS News-Leader


TENNIS Continued from 1JA
of the Amelia Island Tourist
Development Council.
Losing the tournament would
be "a blow to the hospitality indus-
try and business in general," he
said.
Steve Rieck, executive director
of the Nassau County Economic
Development Board, agreed the
tournament is a substantial con-
tributor to the local economy. He
was involved with a ladies' profes-
sional golf tournament in Atlanta
that lost its major sponsor and ulti-
mately folded.
"I understand the economic
impact the loss of the title sponsor
would have on the tennis tourna-
ment," he said.
Langley noted the tournament is
one of the island's top events during
the peak tourist season, falling
between the Concours d'Elegance
in March and the Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival in May. Publicity
about it encourages visitors to come
to the island.
"That really has bigger implica-
tions for us than the (direct) eco-
nomic impact," he said, noting he
has a radio interview scheduled
today with WABC in New York to
promote the tennis tournament.
"It helps brand Amelia Island as
a special place with world-class.
events. ... It would not be a good
thing for the island to lose that
event," Langley said.


The final Bausch & Lomb
Championships will take place at
Amelia Island Plantation April 7-13.
As for next year?
"The Bausch & Lomb Champio-
nships has a rich and vibrant
history on Amelia Island," said
John Arrix, tournament director,
in a press release Monday.
"We are in search of a long-term
alliance with a new title sponsor to
help ensure the success of this
iconic event for many years to
come."
"The tournament management
team is working hard to secure a
title sponsor for 2009," said Richard
Goldman, senior vice president and
chief marketing officer at Amelia
Island Plantation. "The Bausch and
Lomb championships have secured
their place in this market for 29
years and we expect the tourna-
ment to remain here for future
years. We anticipate a positive eco-
nomic outcome because Amelia
Island Plantation will offer our sup-
port to the tournament manage-
ment team in its signing of that new
title sponsor."
Bausch & Lomb said it was end-
ing its sponsorship following recent
federal legislation that prevents the
company from using the event to
entertain physicians. But the com-
pany could be cutting costs after
agreeing last May to be acquired by
affiliates of private equity firm
Warburg Pincus for about $4.5 bil-
lion.


No re-vote for Florida Democrats


There will be no "do over" elec-
tion for Florida Democrats this year.
Congresswoman Karen L.
Thurman, 'chair of the Florida
Democratic Party, announced
Monday there will not be another
primary election vote this year.
There is insufficient time and
money to do so properly, she said.
Democrats had pondered a sec-
ond election, perhaps by mail, pit-
,ting Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen.
Barack Obama, who are in a tight
contest for the Democratic nomi-
.nation for president.
That was because the
Democratic National Committee
has thus far refused to seat Florida's
delegation to the national conven-
tion because the state party violat-
ed rules by setting its primary so
early in the campaign season.
. Clinton led in the Jan. 29 Florida
vote, but none of the candidates
campaigned in the state and it did
not generate as much interest as
its Republican counterpart.
Sen. John McCain, who won the
Florida primary, is the presumptive
Republican presidential nominee.
"Last week, the Florida
Democratic Party laid out the only
existing way that we can comply
with DNC Rules - a statewide re-
vote run by the party - and asked
for input," Thurman wrote in a let-
ter Monday.


"Thousands of people respond-
ed. We spent the weekend review-
ing your messages, and while your
reasons vary widely, the consensus
is clear: Florida doesn't want to vote
again.. ...
"So we won't."
She called on the national party
to reconsider its decision not to seat
the Florida delegation, and to seek
a compromise.
A national party committee is
expected to take up the issue in
April.

POLICE Continued from 1A
when there are opportunities to
use able-bodied volunteers in lim-
ited roles."
Earlier this year, Hurley sent
out a memo to FBPD employees
noting his intention to form an
auxiliary, asking officers and oth-
ers to "be alert to" potential vol-
unteers for the corps. The 45
members that came on board in
the past few weeks are a combi-
nation of people who were sug-
gested by others and people
Hurley knows personally and
wanted to be involved.
On March 6 the initial 45 mem-
bers held their first meeting,
where they received guidebooks
and a promise from Hurley that
committing to being a police
department volunteer wouldn't
require a lot of time for individual
volunteers, many of whom are
retired.
Hurley said he is hoping to get
the group up to about 150 mem-
bers, and he will use them "spar-
ingly."
"We don't intend to burn them
out by tasking them every week
with something new to do," he
said. "We'll work around their
schedules and use them sparing-
ly."
At the onset of the program,
the primary use for the auxiliary
members will be traffic control -
not necessarily directing traffic,
Hurley said, but holding traffic
for parades, special events and
the like. But as time goes on and
the"group grows and becomes
more organized, Hurley said,
he'd like to give certain members
other tasks, such as making pre-
sentations on issues like identity
theft and financial scams or
accompanying officers on boat
patrol.
"There are several people who
we have reached out to, and we're
going to be looking at them to
use some of their expertise in var-
ious ways," he said.
Fernandina Beach resident
John Harris, a retired safety work-
er in the trucking industry, said
he has been hoping for years the
department would launch just

e - tribute to the
Ss-..I w security of the
community on
S their own time.
Harris has
Hurley been concerned
about traffic in
Fernandina
Beach since he moved here from
Georgia several years ago, and
he has worked with the depart-
ment before by providing video
footage of vehicles running stop
signs in his neighborhood.
I just think it's an excellent
idea," said Harris, who attended
the program's first meeting
March 6. "Any time you can get
some volunteers out there for
stuff like neighborhood watches
we could help get kicked off, it
just makes sense to me that if you
put more people out there that
have an interest (in public safety),
it's going to be better."
And the price is right, too.
Hurley said between donations -
the program already received
$1,500 from the Fernandina
Beach Wal-Mart- and equipment
the department already owns, like
the old radios officers used before
emergency services agencies
countywide had their radios
replaced, very little, if any, money
from the department's city budg-
et will need to be used for the pro-
gram.
Most of the volunteers are
around retirement age, although
Hurley said some are younger;
some have a background in law
enforcement or the military, oth-
ers do not. But there is one thing
Hurley says all of the members
have in common.
"They all understand the
importance of volunteering as it
relates to having a successful com-
munity," he said. "... This will give
us eyes and ears in the commu-
nity ... they represent businesses
and neighborhoods throughout
the island ... through them, we
will have another way to push out
information that we want to go
out to the community."

The water management district
also has declared April as Water
Conservation Month. April has
been formally recognized as Water
Conservation Month in Florida for
the past 10 years.
The district has numerous pro-
grams and projects to encourage
and require water conservation.
Since 1991, lawn irrigation has
been limited to before 10 a.m. or
after 4 p.m. In 2006, this water-con-
serving rule was amended to limit
irrigation to no more than two days
a week. Commercial, industrial and
agricultural water users are
required to implement a variety of
water-saving practices to comply
with their permits.
The district also offers tips to
save water. Inside the home, fix
leaks, running toilets and dripping
faucets and install low-flow toilets
and showerheads. Outside the
home, water lawns and landscapes
only when needed but no more
than two days a week, before 10
a.m. or after 4 p.m.

serve water, visit floridaswater.

No relief in sight



for A1A traffic


Fires of controversy are
raging over new devel-
opment along AlA in
Yulee - and the traffic
congestion it is causing.
Just last week, another log
was put on the fire.
The county's approval of a
new shopping center bordering
the Marsh Lakes subdivision is
the latest act to stoke the con-
troversy. The center will attract
additional traffic to a portion of
A1A that is the most problemat-
ic.
County officials acknowl-
edge that ALA needs some
relief. Like many residents, they
feel ALA should be widened to
six lanes between Amelia Island
and 1-95, but they have no
answers on how to pay for it.
They have contended that
the Marsh Lakes center and
others like it are sort of grandfa-
thered in and do not figure into
the traffic computation. The cal-
culation is based on the traffic a
new development will bring,
and whether AlA has room for
it.
Local officials fear that law-
suits will abound if they deny
such applications. Some of
these "new" developments are
offspring of previous ones that
received approvals long ago
(prior to new, more restrictive
laws on traffic being adopted).
Incensed residents believe
the county does not have to
grant such approvals. The traf-
fic patterns have changed dra-
matically since the, earlier deci-
sions. And since when are
county officials not allowed to
change the laws?
The county's coordinator,
the attorney and top planners
here are all new. They don't
seem to have the insight or the
inclination to wage such battles.
Decisions by county commis-
sioners seem to fall in the favor
of the property owners/devel-
opers in contested matters.
The statistics compiled by
local residents are striking,
telling. They show traffic


increasing
beyond the
capacity of
AlA. Local
residents
have plead-
' ed their case
to state
transporta-
tion officials
Steve in hopes
Nicklas they will
intercede.
. The
STEVE'S Marsh
IAI= T Lakes com-
MARKET mercial
PLACE develop-
ment is no
small undertaking. It will entail
more than 54,000 square feet of
offices, shops, a restaurant, and
possibly a liquor store.
The county's justification in
approving the new center is the
same as the previous ones. It is
believed that somewhere
between 15 and 20 projects -
already approved by the county
- are pending the blessing of
state transportation officials.
(Local planning officials
say few remaining projects
could fall under the old stan-
dards.)
Most of these projects had
the same specifics: a prior
approval from a prior time. For
argument's sake, developments.
along AlA - since it is a state
highway - must be approved by
the state after the county gives
its blessing. This has to do with
the increased traffic on a road
that is already considered to be
overcapacity.
A Jacksonville publication
ran a cover story on the situa-
tion in Nassau County. It fea-
tured a chicken crossing a
crowded roadway. In this case,
the chicken must have crossed
the road to escape a raging fire
of controversy.

Island. He can be reached at

McClellan calls a house under
construction in Amelia Park "the
most green-built house in the
neighborhood." Starting with its
reflective roofing, the house also
has durable HardiePlank siding,
I plus oriented strand board made
of recycled wood chips. Another
material used in construction is
lumber made from leftover cedar
that is jointed together.
Another "green" house being
built across the street has a front
walkway of recycled brick and no
irrigation system because it is land-
scaped with drought-resistant
plants native to Florida. Louvered
handrails on the front porch direct
the air upward for more comfort.
The owners, Mary Beth Palmer
and Sandy Pardue, also plan to put
a solar-powered water pump to

in the back yard.
S The 1,200-square-foot cottage
also has a bathroom countertop
made of recycled cinder block and
broken glass from a company in
Brooklyn, N.Y. And in an innovative
- twist, the house's attic space is com-
pletely sealed by a high-tech
Icynene, or spray foam insulation,
thereby preventing any moisture
from forming due to temperature

attic is controlled by the home-
owner, using the house's AC/heat-

Q UESTION:At age twen-

nant and had a baby girl.
The father and I never
married. My daughter is
almost three years old
now, and I know she will
soon be asking questions about her
daddy. How should I explain this situa-
tion to her and when should that expla-
nation be given?
DR. DOBSON: Eventually, you
will want to tell your daughter the
whole story about her father and
describe your relationship with him,
but now is not the time to do that.
She must be mature and emotionally
ready to deal with those details. On
the other hand, you don't want to treat
the subject as a dark secret that haunts
the two of you. Neither do you want to
be untruthful and tell yarns that will
later have to be admitted.
At this early stage, I'd suggest
that you respond confidently and lov-
ingly to the inevitable questions about
"Daddy." When the appropriate occa-
sions surface, begin giving her vague
explanations that are based in truth
but are short of the whole story. You
may wish to say. something like this,
"Your daddy went away before you
were born. He didn't want to live with
me. I'm not sure why. Maybe he had
some problems that made it hard to be
a husband. I don't know. I'm sure if he

had ever met you, he'd have loved you
very much. But he left before you were
born. Maybe a new daddy will come
to live with us.Would you like that?"
I recognize there are potential
problems with a reply of this nature,
and that it may not be entirely appro-
priate for every case. It simply attempts
to lay the foundation for the more in-
depth discussions to follow. Just as
important, it likely will defuse the sit-
uation early on while conveying a sense
of affirmation, security, and mutual
reliance upon the Lord. And once
you've achieved that,. take a deep
breach and let it rest for awhile If
you're at peace, your daughter will be,
too -- and there will be ample time to
add detail to the picture as God directs.

VIEWPOINT/JOAN CIPRIANO/AMEULIA ISLAND



Election'08: charisma or failure?


So Peggy Stanton thinks it would be a risky
mistake to vote for Barack Obama because
he is charismatic ("Electiofi 2008: charisma
or fear?" on March 14). Her premise is that a
charismatic person can be good or evil. For good
charismatic people she names Franklin Roosevelt,
Ronald Reagan, Martin Luther King, Jr., etc. For evil
charismatic people she names Hitler, Mussolini and
Castro.
I guess we are to conclude that the risk is too big
that Barack Obama may turn out to be like one of
those three most evil people who ever lived. Anyone
who reads Obama's books, or listens to his speech-
es or is even awake has to see what a ridiculous
premise this is.
I think there is a better way to put the election in
context and choose a candidate. Just take a look at
the news and see if you like what you hear.
Mortgages are being foreclosed at a historic
rate, and at the same time house prices are drop-
ping. Prices for basic food needs like milk, fruits,
vegetables and grains are skyrocketing. Gasoline
prices are marching well beyond $3 per gallon.
The stock market has gained hardly any ground
in the last seven years, so people's retirement
accounts are not producing the income that was
planned. The value of our dollar is painfully lower
than it ever has been against the euro. Financial


leaders are trying to save one of the largest invest-
ment banks (Bear Stearns) in our country from
bankruptcy - with our tax dollars, of course. More
of us than ever have no health insurance.
Thousands and thousands of jobs have been moved
to other countries, little by little erasing the one
thing that makes this country great - the great mid-
dle class.
One thing we have left is the pride in our mili-
tary. But even that is endangered by a foolish for-
eign policy. Most of the terrorists who attacked our
country were from Saudi Arabia, but we attacked
Iraq, something that made no sense from the begin-
ning. Now the Pentagon itself is admitting that there
was no connection between Al Qaeda and Saddam
Hussein. And the continuing estimate is that 40 per-
cent of all terrorists originate in Saudi Arabia, a
monarchy whose princes literally hold hands with
our president.
Five years after the sales pitch of "shock and
awe," our soldiers continue to be wounded and
killed, but Iraqis still can't figure out how to deal
with a democracy that has been handed to them on
a platter filled with American and Iraqi blood - even
though they never asked for it. Our government
continues to tell us that we can "win" in Iraq if we
keep the troop levels high, and if we leave there will
be chaos.


However, some experts believe that if we leave in
10, 20, 30 years or more, there will still be chaos.
The bill for that chaos keeps rising, too. It now costs
$12 billion a month to pay for the war, with no end in
sight.
Republican leadership with its mind-numbing
mantra of less government, lower taxes (for the
richest) and fear has run its course. The failure of
these policies is endangering the future of the
United States.
A new voice like Obama's goes beyond our inner
fear that our country is failing and lets us hope that
we can turn our course back toward the greatness
that we had been taking for granted for more than
200 years.
The first time I heard Sen. Obama speak, more
than two years ago, I knew I had heard the voice of
someone who sees our country's place in the world
and place in history. I knew I was listening to a real
believer in the United States of America - a patriot.
This man places country before party - and isn't
that the one thing we need most in a president? Yes,
Obama does fill huge auditoriums with cheering
crowds, but maybe it is not because of his charisma
but because of what he is saying. This is a great
country, and we want it to remain that way.
Joan Cipriano is a former president of the
Democratic Club ofAmelia Island.

Dream home
I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the Nassau
County Commissioners for the beautiful home I
received through the CDBG grants program. There
were a few delays in the beginning for myself and
other recipients that were covered in newspaper arti-
cles. Once these problems were resolved construc-
tion progressed smoothly and on schedule.
I feel secure knowing my home conforms to all cur-
rent building codes. Avery special thank-you to grants
manager Eron Thompson. Her efforts along with those
of Ed Matthews helped make this hope a reality. She
kept me constantly informed on progress and quickly
responded to any questions I had. She deserves a spe-
cial award for her work. I would also like to thank the
contractor, Jimmy Anderson of A&E Construction. I
enjoyed talks with him during construction as he was
knowledgeable and very polite. I am so very happy in
my beautiful new home.

Irresponsible dog owners
I frequently walk from my home to Sadler Road. It
is a pleasant walk along Will Hardee. This,week, I
encountered something that distressed me.
On the east side of Will Hardee from Calais Street
south to Safe Harbor North, about three blocks, is a
strip of land that has become very hazardous. Large
dogs have been allowed to defecate on the grass and
� sidewalks. I am talking large dogs! The sight and smell
. ,are truly, disgusting. ItJwouidd, not take very much-for
these owners to carry a plastic bag to clean up after their
pets. When our weather becomes hotter, it truly will be
an area to avoid. Isn't there a city ordinance directing
people to clean up after their animals? If there is not,
there should be.
I hope these owners read this and will stop this
practice. Shame on you!
Mary J. Coogan

Falsely accused
I wish the reporter had asked law enforcement if the
arrest record is expunged ("Threat to kill untrue,"
March 7). I am betting that the arrest will stay on the
young man's record for the rest of his life, and he will
be stymied when filling out job applications or college
applications. What are the rules in Florida? Forgiving
is one thing, but the state never forgets. The young man
ought to consult with an attorney.
I wish this young man all the best What a horrify-
ing experience.
Henry Shirah
Athens, Ga.

Hurrah
I think it's time to say hurrah for the Fernandina
Farmers Market!
The concept for the'Farmers Market was another
one of those great ideas to come out of the Centre'd
Women's group.
With the hard work and devotion of many, many vol-
unteers the market has grown from a handful of ven-
dors in Central Park to the wonderful event we see on
North Seventh Street each Saturday when 1,200-1,300
shoppers visit the market weekly. It truly is the place
to be on Saturday morning.
If you haven't been there yet - what are you waiting
for? You're gonna love it!
Patricia Graser
Fernandina Beach

Volunteers
A month ago I met 45 new friends in one day. They
love me, they do not judge and care less how I dress.
They wait for me every day just to spend a few minutes
with them and give them a loving hug. My friends
have four paws and they wait patiently for their turn to
walk outside to do their potty business. These are lov-
ing dogs that need a chance to live.
I volunteer at Nassau County Animal Care and
Control. "Care" is the word here because Mr. (Rhett)
Holden-Dodge, kind, honest, hard-working employ-
ees and so many wonderful volunteers work very hard
to nurse the sick, find good homes and keep the place
clean, etc.
I've seen too many horrors in dog pounds during my
life and I wish folks would run the pounds like I've seen
this past month. Our tax dollars and donations should
be used in a humane way. I shudder to think our money
goes to abusers, neglect or killers of animals.
More animals come in than go out adopted, but
volunteers offer their time and money to find homes and
foster animals. Without volunteers I see our taxes
going up. Of course April 1 things may change if all the
animals are destroyed, which means our taxes should
go way down. As a concerned citizen and taxpayer we
should question the intentions for the animals by the
people taking over.
The word "care" may be blown to the wind and we
are left with "control" only. Please, please care; you have
a friend waiting just for you. Have a heart, adopt today,
tomorrow may be too late.

Whiny liberals


Re: "Who's dumb?" on March 12
I see another liberal has been bitten by the hate
America Bush derangement syndrome. How many
times does it take recounting votes by independent
groups for you to get it through your thick head, Gore
lost! Even the liberal media knows that, check with the
New York Times. Next you'll be whining that Bush is
responsible for the saltwater south of Jasmine Street.
If you bothered to take a look at IRS statistics or edu-
cate yourself on the matter you would see that 97 per-
cent of all federal taxes are paid by the top 50 percent
of wage earners in this country. That's right; the other
50 percent pays 3 percent The top 25 percent pays 86
percent and the top 1 percent pays .39 percent. The
nitwits in Congress just voted to raise taxes and voted
against the United States in the terrorist surveillance
bill. You've had your head in the sand too long; the
islamofascists have been attacking us going on nigh 20
years before Bush was elected. To name a few: World
Trade Center bombing 1993, the USS Cole, U.S.
embassies, on and on
We finally elect a president with a backbone and all
you liberals do is whine. Ann Coulter is right, if you
democratss" had any brains you'd be a Republican. Go
back and stick your head in the sand and don't vote.

Phenomenal
Re: "Election 2008: charisma or fear?" on March 14.
When I read the first sentence of Mrs. Stanton's col-
umn, I originally thought it was going to be a com-
mentary on how deplorable it was that Sen. Hillary
Clinton used the image of children sleeping as a way
to fear monger in her "3 a.m." advertisement. I was sur-
prised that in fact it was a comment about how we
should be somewhat fearful of Barack Obama because
of his ability to inspire people with his charisma.
Many people don't understand why this young sen-
ator from Illinois is winning the hearts and minds of peo-
ple across the United States. I believe that Sen. Clinton
referred to his success as a "phenomenon." It is under-
standable how someone like Sen. Clinton so entrenched
with "experience" in the backdoor politics of
Washington, D.C., a trait that she sees as the best rea-
son to vote for her, would view Sen. Obama, who is new
to the scene, as a strange choice for Americans. The
reality is people are not voting for Sen. Obama because
of his talent as an orator, but in fact they are voting for
him because they want someone, anyone for that mat-
ter, who is not saturated by the corrupt special-interest-
driven world of Washington, D.C.
Sen. Obama in his ability to successfully campaign
without fear mongering, without slinging mud at his
opponents and without being deceitful in his message
is proving to the American public that decency can be
returned to politics.
I am not going to even get into why Mitt Romney
was not able to win the Republican primary, but I think
it may have to do with the fact that his first name is Mitt
and that he is a Mormon. But I can say that if the
Democratic party does not recognize Mr. Obama as
something more than a charismatic speaker, then they
are saying that their members who have voted for him
are nothing more than dupes, and that will make for a
very interesting convention. I am an independent, and
I have a feeling that more Democrats will be joining my
ranks if he is not nominated.

False choice
Ms. Peggy Stanton wants to know if Americans will
"choose not the leader who inspires them the most, but
the one they fear the least" ("Election 2008: charisma
or fear?" on March 14).
This is a false choice. With Barack Obama they
can have both the inspiration and the lack of fear. What
I fear is a candidate who is not appalled by a 100-year-
old war or who thinks it is funny to sing ditties like
"Bomb, Bomb Iran," Sen. McCain.
Ms. Stanton goes on to say that her dictionary pri-
marily describes "charisma" as "a rare quality or power
attributed to those persons who have demonstrated an
exceptional ability for leadership".
According to my Webster's New World
College Dictionary, the number one definition for
"charisma" is as follows: "a divinely inspired gift,
grace or talent prophesying, healing, etc." Or, "a
special quality of leadership that captures the
popular imagination and inspires allegiance and devo-
tion."
I believe the American people deserve a leader who
inspires instead of relying upon fear mongering.

Food additives
Does your soda, Crystal Light or chewing gum
contain a neurotoxin?
If it contains aspartame, you are ingesting a neu-
rotoxin and a carcinogen. Numerous independent
studies, by reputable institutions, prove that this arti-
ficial sweetener destroys healthy brain tissue, lowers
the seizure threshold, depletes serotonin and dam-
ages DNA.
I was affected by aspartame poisoning and mil-
lions of others have suffered from it. The FDA rec-
ognizes 92 symptoms including migraines, seizures
and dizziness.
Please educate yourself about this chemical addi-
tive. It is affecting the health of our society. Aspartame
is a poison and must be removed from our food sup-
ply.
The strongest legislative document concerning
aspartame ever presented anywhere in the world
was introduced on March 13 by the Hawaii Senate.
This powerful resolution requests that the FDA com-
missioner rescind approval of aspartame. Introduced
by Sen. Suzanne Chun Oakland, SCR191 is cospon-
sored by 11 chairs and vice chairs of legislative com-
mittees, out of 25 members.
It also requests that the health department create
an evidentiary repository for victims and their physi-
cians to submit cases involving aspartame poisoning.
Another resolution, HCR132, introduced by Rep. Josh
Green, M.D. was approved 6-3 in the Health
Committee.
Previously in New Mexico, similar efforts
were attempted and butchered by corporate
lobbyists. Despite this, efforts are spreading to other
states.
The public is awakening.
What about Florida? Are any legislators, such as
Rep. Aaron P. Bean, Healthcare Council chairman,
willing to protect consumers with a similar resolu-
tion?

State cuts current budget


by another $512 million


Florida's deteriorating fiscal
condition took center stage again
last week.
On Wednesday, the Florida
Legislature approved $512 million
in cuts that it had developed
before the new estimates. This is
on top of $1 billion already cut
last fall.
Education bore the brunt of
the cuts; about $346 million -
including $234 million of which
was expected to help pay for the
day-to-day operations of public
schools. The two rounds of cuts
have cost public schools $460 mil-
lion, but per-student spending is
still 4.5 percent higher than last
year.
Social services will lose
$37 million and the state court
system will lose $48 million,
though no layoffs or unpaid fur-
loughs of court workers are
expected. This was avoided


by allowing prosecutors and
public defenders to tap into
revenues from court fines and
fees.
Attention now turns to the new
budget. The House is consider-
ing a freeze on annual Medicaid
increases that could save $340
million next year.
Senate President Ken Pruitt
said he expects lawmakers to
eliminate a $316 million Medicaid
rate increase planned to take
effect July 1 for hospitals, nursing
homes and some other health
providers.
Nursing homes lose another
$139 million next year after
being cut $75 million earlier this
year.
House Speaker Mario Rubio
and Senate President Pruitt
have ruled out tax increases,
but the Senate is considering
gambling revenues and pos-


sibly tuition increases and fee
hikes.
The Senate has given prelimi-
nary approval to a pair of bills to
raise revenue by expanding gam-
bling.
SB 1380 would allow the addi-
tion of thousands of electronic
gambling machines, similar to slot
machines, at greyhound tracks,
horse tracks and jai-alai frontons.
This could raise up to $500 mil-
lion.
The $27.5 billion estimate
lawmakers based the current
year's budget on has now
been reduced three times by -
a little more than $1 billion each -
time.
Revenue estimates for the
upcoming budget are now $4.6
billion less than they were a year"
ago.

RollinI

T he nature trail in Little
albot Island State Park
just south of Amelia
Island is one of my
favorite walks in our cooler
months. Like any routinely visit-
ed place, I've gotten familiar with
many of its features. I know the
large magnolia trees, the live
oaks, the pines. I know the mush-
rooms that sprout on the trail and
the resurrection ferns that quick-
ly turn to green after it rains. I
know the gopher tortoise bur-
rows and the squirrel nests in the
trees and the places where I can.
sometimes grab a handful of wild
blackberries.
Nearby this trail is "my" spot,
a place I retreat to, hidden from
the path, to plot out my life and
soothe my soul. The animals that
share this spot with me - the soli-
tary bee that buzzes me, the
gopher tortoise who lives nearby,
the bobcat that leaves signs
near where I sit - all are my
familiars. I am so protective of
this spot that when I walk to it I
take a branch with me to brush
away my tracks.
I often lead group hikes along
this trail. I know to plan my trips
around the timing of the tides if I
want to circle back by the beach,
now eroded past safe walking at
high tide. I've been walking this
path for more than a decade. You
would think, after all these years,
that I really know the place.
But recently I got to know it
differently, in two very different
ways. One recent weekend, my


g along
friend Rhonda
brought her
grandson
along with
Priscilla and
me for our
-- Sunday hike
of Little
Talbot. A
native
SPat Fernandina
child of
Foster- Turley nature sure
... -- adds a new
outlook on
WILD WAYS things. While
we three gals
walked along the trail, Reid
rushed ahead, and climbed some
trees along the way, or jumped
out of the brush to startle us as
we strolled past. Along the beach
he picked up treasures and
brought them back to us and
splashed in water oblivious to the
cold. Nothing routine about this
hike, not at all!
Then there's the. Sunday that
Rhonda and I joined Maren and
Greg for one of their Ecomotion
Tours of this very same trail.
Gliding along the path on a
Segway, now that's an interesting.
twist. But how different can it be
than a regular hike?
Very different, it turns, out, in


a nature trail


unexpected ways. The motion of
a Segway is smooth, and sound-
less, with control as easy as a
turn of the wrist or a shift of the
body and the wide tires are gen-
tle on the trail. Within a few min-
utes the assembled group had
learned the essential skills and
off we went down the nature trail,
a line of standees with earphones
attuned Greg's nature narration.
There was plenty of time to let
the mind drift and to take in the
scenery, but it was different
scenery from this perspective. No
longer was I looking at my feet
while I hiked, watching for
snakes or branches to trip me up.
On the Segway my attention was
not drawn to the mushrooms on
the forest floor, but instead my
focus was up ahead, facing down
the trail. One foot higher off the
ground gave a surprisingly differ-
ent view of things and looking
ahead attuned me to the wooded
canopy and the yellow-flowering
Carolina jessamine and the
clumps of mistletoe and other
plants that I. most likely walked
by oblivious to just a week earlier.
By the time we were heading


back down the trail to our start
point I was nearly hypnotized by
the smooth rhythm of gliding
effortlessly along through the
greenery and dunes. Lulled into
complacency I forgot that I was
actually in charge of my own
vehicle. In a moment of diverted
attention I drifted a bit off the
trail, and in compensating instead
of slowing by turning the "throt-
tle" or what would be a throttle
on a motorbike, this maneuver
turned me a sharp right, into the
shrubbery, off the trail! But, no
harm done, the status quo was
quickly restored, and I caught up
to the group once again, a bit
embarrassed, but no worse for
the experience.
Riding a Segway is a fun new
way to see this nature trail. If you
want to try this yourself check
out www.ecomotiontours.com for
further information. If you just
don't try to find "my" spot, there's
plenty of room for us all!

WEDNESDAY. MARCH 19.2008 NEWS News-Leader


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
Fernandina Beach Police Depart-
ment at 277-7342 or the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office anony-
mously by calling 225-0147 in Yulee
and Fernandina Beach or 879-
2136 in Callahan, Hilliard and
Bryceville. The "We Tip"program
- 1-800-78CRIME - also allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.
Apparent arson
Local police and fire officials
are investigating the apparent
arson of a tractor-trailer filled with
pine straw and parked at the inter-
section of Flora Parke and Amelia
Concourse.
According to a report, investi-
gators believe the fire may have
been set by a juvenile male.
Authorities responded to the
fire about 6:30 p.m. March 10; fire-
fighters extinguished the fire and
Nassau County Fire Rescue Capt.
Mike Eddins told police the fire
was "very suspicious." No broken
trailer locks were found at the
scene.
Police canvassed the area and
spoke to a juvenile who said he
was at the scene before the trail-
er was ignited. He said he was
walking home from school with
two friends when one of his
friends said "he felt like doing
something stupid." He gave police
the boy's first name arid said he
lived in Amelia National, but said
he did not know the suspect's last
name.
The case is still under investi-
gation.


Marijuana arrest
A Bryceville man was arrested
Thursday after police reportedly
found 44 marijuana plants in a
shed in his back yard.
According to a statement
issued by Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves, the plants
found in Jeffrey William Cooey's
possession at 5809 Humming
bird Place were worth approxi-
mately $44,000. Processed mari-
juana and drug paraphernalia
worth about $2,300 were also
seized at the home, according to
Seagraves.
Cooey, 51, was arrested for cul-
tivation of marijuana, possession of
more than 20 grams of marijua-
na, possession of marijuana with
intent to distribute and posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia.
Cooey was released from jail
after posting a bond of $47,508.

Animal Control theft
A 19-year-old Yulee man was
arrested last week on several
charges of burglary and theft.
Police believe Shawn Michael
Luce of 76269 Tom Burney
Road stole approximately $3,000
from Nassau County Animal
Control - possibly while fulfilling
community service hours at the
building.
He also is accused of stealing
an all-terrain vehicle, firearms and
clothes from private residences
and fire lighters from the Nassau
County Association of Retarded
Citizens building in Yulee.
According to police reports,
several stolen items were found at
Luce's home when his mother
allowed detectives to conduct a
search of the residence. He was
linked to the theft from Animal
Control when witnesses reported
seeing Luce with large sums of


money in early January, near the
time of the theft.
Luce reportedly was seen with
as much as $2,000 in cash at one
time, although he was not
employed at the time.
An office manager at Animal
Control told police Luce served
his last day of community serv-
ice on Jan. 6. She said she did not
hear any alarm calls on the
evening of the burglary - Jan. 14
- but one door to the building did
not lock.
Luce was arrested March 12.
He is in custody at the Nassau
County Jail, where he is being
held without bond on charges of
violating probation, misdemeanor
possession of marijuana, resisting
arrest without violence, burglary,
armed burglary to a dwelling,
grand theft of a firearm, grand
theft of an automobile and grand
theft.

Present at the (Iran) revolution


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Reading about a political revo-
lution is one thing. Living through
one... just ask the Curtins.
Andrew and Cara Curtin gave
their first-person accounts of plow-
ing through roadblocks, taking
cover from gunfire and surviving
the Iranian revolution during the
Amelia Island Museum of
History's Veteran's History Project
luncheon. The retired U:S. Navy
officers spoke March 13 about the
experience and their narrow
escape from the country as the
Shah of Iran left power and the
Ayatollah Khomeini seized author-
ity. -

Thamm served as program co-
chairmen for the history project
that recorded 150 interviews of
Nassau County veterans. The
"Heroes Among Us" luncheon was
the 10th and final program in the
series.
"This was really an awe-inspir-
ing series," hearing from speak-
ers "who represent some of the
best in our military," said Carmen
Godwin, the museum's immediate
past director. Godwin returned for
the luncheon after accepting a posi-
tion as head of a Jacksonville
preservation group.
'Today is bittersweet for us
... It has been a really great run,"
she said. "I'll always have a spe-
cial place in my heart for the pro-
gram. It means a great deal to me."
Cara.Curtin, who grew up in
Virginia and graduated from Old
Dominion College in Norfolk,
joined the Navy serving as an unre-
stricted line officer.
The former owner of The
Sailor's Wife Book Exchange in
Fernandina Beach, Curtin writes
the column City Sidebar for the
News-Leader.
Andrew Curtin, a Scranton, Pa.,
native, graduated from the U.S.
Naval Academy in 1963. He
received designation as a naval avi-
ator in July 1966. He retired after
20 years and worked as an emer-
gency services helicopter pilot for
Shands Jacksonville. He currently
serves as a pilot with the Civil Air
Patrol and sits on the city's airport
advisory commission.
The Curtins, who met in 1970 at
the Mustin Beach Officers Club


in Pensacola, were married on
base in Newport, R.I., in 1973.
They reported for duty in Tehran,
Iran, in November 1977.
"We took everything we
owned," Cara Curtin said. "The
only thing we did not take was lan-
guage skills."
"Iran at the time was ruled by
the Shah." It was "a stable, secular
Muslim country," Andrew Curtin
said. '"Things were getting a little
bit dicey by the time we got there."
The two spent time learning
customs, culture and shopping in
the Persian country. "Eventually,
though, we had to go to work," he
said.
Some Americans in the country
had been assassinated. So for their
protection, the Curtins dressed as
civilians during their commute to
work via carpool, driven by Iranian
Navy enlisted personnel. The car-
pool intermittently altered pick-up
times and routes.
Cara Curtin worked as the only
woman in her office building. In a
country where custom prevented
women from looking*a man in the
eye,, her orders were filtered
through subordinate men. "If I said
it, it was like irritating noise," she
said.
As the summer of 1978


approached, protests and fires
escalated. The government
declared marshal law following a
major demonstration in Jaleh
Square in south Tehran, Andrew
Curtin said
The country was "in revolution
at that point," he said. Some time
later, after a military post went up
in flames, the Curtins risked their
lives to leave Navy headquarters
and return to their house, barely
making it there before curfew.
'The drive home through the
streets was truly dangerous," he
said.
With a limited supply of food,
the Curtins remained holed up in
their house for about two weeks,
with two comrades taking safe
haven with them.
Before leaving the county, in
February 1979, the Curtins would
sell all their belongings, drive again
through the dangerous, chaotic
streets, reach a hotel, board a mil-
itary plane and wait hours for per-
mission to fly out of the country to
Greece.
After climbing aboard the plane,
"I .had a really good cry,".C,ara
Curtin said, thinking to herself at
the time, "I am safe. This is
American soil."

SPORTS TALK
JOHN L. CRAWFORD



Billy D had

every right

to call out

his team
U university of Florida
head basketball
coach Billy Donovan
is taking consider-
able heat nationally for the fol-
lowing comments regarding
his team's lack of dedication
after a loss to Alabama in the
first round of the Southeastern
Conference Championship
Tournament Thursday:
"It's in front of our guys,
what it takes to win. For what-
ever reason, I haven't brought
it out in them. They're not
committed to it ... I'm not real-
ly excited about seeing this
group of guys being sopho-
mores."
Isn't it kind of refreshing to
hear a coach say what's on his
mind rather than spew the
same old politically correct
garbage? While the rest of the
country, including yours truly,
pinned the Gators' 3-8,collapse
down the stretch on the youth
factor, we now know the truth,
the whole truth and nothing
but the truth that Florida's
players aren't committed. Let's
not vilify Donovan for merely
telling the truth, which is
something we rarely see in
sports.
Granted, these Gators had
titanic shoes to fill after two
straight national champi-
onships in which most of them
had no stake. And I'm sure it
didn't help to glance up on the
O'Connell Center Jumbotron
before each home game to see
the most adored group of
Gators in Florida basketball
history hoisting up the crystal
ball. But, as pressured as they
were, don't you think these
guys were equally advantaged
to be playing for the coach
-who masterminded the last
,two national championships?
So let's not waste a whole lot
:of time sobbing into our hand-
:kerchiefs for the baby Gators,
SIwrote last week that this
season was an investment of
heart for the young Gators.
'Obviously I was wrong, as
Donovan was honest enough
to tell the world that these
guys could all stand a visit to
their local cardiologist to see if
the organs in their chests are
still working ...
Speaking of college basket-
ball coaches, does Georgia's
improbable run to the SEC
Tournament Championship
give head coach Dennis Felton
a new lease on his tenure with
the Bulldogs?
Felton proved to be a stand-
up, no-nonsense guy from the
start, taking over for the shady
Jim Haririck in 2003-4 and
instilling discipline back into
an out-of-control program. But
one thing he hasn't instilled in
his players is the ability to win
games - that is until last
weekend, when they won four
straight to earn a NCAA
Tournament berth.
The Bulldogs have yet to
produce a winning conference
record under Felton's watch
and hadn't even sniffed a
NCAATournament bid until
Sunday. Felton's guys stepped
up big in what many believed
to be his waning moments as
Georgia's coach. Whether that
will stave off five seasons of
less-than-mediocrity and save
Felton's job remains to be
seen...
Not only did Georgia win
the SEC Tournament, but they
did it in a remarkably short
period of time after a tornado
damaged the Georgia Dome
and forced officials to post-
pone Friday night's games
until Saturday.
The Dawgs took kindly to
their new venue, Georgia
Tech's Alexander Memorial
Arena, and reeled off back-to-
back wins over Kentucky at
noon and Mississippi State
during the nightcap before


coming back for a win against
Arkansas Sunday afternoon.
Maybe Felton should look into
"power scheduling" if he does
in fact get to stick around for
another season.

Hornets


get their


10th win

Yulee picked up its 10th win of
the season with good pitching and
big hits (11) to beat Hilliard 10-5
Friday.
Josh McKendree (4-0) pitched
five strong innings, striking out six
and giving up two earned runs.
Andrew Minor came into the game
in the sixth for relief on the mound,
striking out three and walking one
in two innings of work to pick up
the save.
Offensively, the Hornets were
led by Cory Reynolds (1-for-4 with
three RBIs and two runs scored)
and his big three-run home run in
the sixth inning. Other offensive
leaders were Josh Kubala (1-for-4,
two RBIs, one run scored), Minor
(3-for-3 with one run scored), Buck
Marell (a double, one RBI), Josh
Oliver (2-for-4 with three RBIs, one
run scored), Josh Cassidy (2-for-2
with two runs scored) and Brock
Dickinson (1-for-3 with two runs
scored).
"Our defense struggled early,
which allowed Hilliard to stay in
the game until the big home run by
Cory Reynolds in the sixth inning,"
said Will Minor, head baseball
coach for Yulee High School. "Josh
McKendree did a great job of stay-

YOUTH SOCCER


AMELIA ISLAND YOUTH
SOCCER
Saturday results

* The Amelia Island U16
Spartans opened their season with
an impressive 7-1 victory over visit-
ing Clay County.
Scoring three goals in the first
half and four in the second, the
Spartans played well together as a
team, passing and working the ball
down the field on offense and,
anchored by Spartan defensive
stalwart Jazz Tomassetti, fielding
an almost impregnable defense.


Although startled somewhat
when the visiting team scored a
goal in the opening minute, the
Spartans quickly regrouped and
never looked back.
Keeper Henley Cavender had
numerous saves and the defensive
effort was bolstered by the excel-
lent play of Danny Barber, Michael
Booker, Jeremiah Sayre, Landon
Kovalick and James Harmon.
Nick Picard scored two goals,
both wasassists by Jordan
Holland. Chris Castro, Holland and
Garrett Ardis each scored unassist-
ed and Barber and Sayre scored


with assists by Tomassetti and
Tyler King, respectively.
Josh and Katie Stanley, Sage
Killough, Jeffrey Beluscak, Travis
Echlund and Jordan Ward all made
significant contributions to both
sustaining the offense and shutting
down the opposing team.
* The U10 Spitfire had three ter-
rific keepers Saturday - Chandler,
Kyleigh and Lindsey The defense
kept the opponents away thanks to
Elise, Kayla, Chandler and Bailey.
Jacob had three shots on goal with
assists from Bailey and Justin.
Great game, Spitfires.

WE)NISDA . MARCH 19.2008 / NEWS-LEADER


OUTDOORS





Jones the leader ,



in NSFA's annual ' .


drum tourney

"This past Saturday, Jacob Jones took the lead in
the NSFA drum tournament with a big 66.3-pound
black drum," Leader's & Sinkers' Don Whitman
said. "Drum fishing, however, has been slow both
Saturday and Sunday of this past weekend. The
winds blew hard from the southwest on Saturday,
then a front arrived Sunday with northeast winds
blowing from 15-20 miles per
hour, shutting the drum fish-
ing action down. But we expect
to see the drum bite improve
over the next few days when
the weather stabilizes, particu-
larly around the full moon,
which arrives Friday.
"I had a charter this past
week on Wednesday and we
boated five big drum to fifty-
Terry Lacoss pounds," Capt. Benny Hendrix
b. ... said. "However, during the
OUTDOORS first day of the drum tourna-
ment, we caught a variety of
saltwater species of game fish
at the St. Marys south jetty rocks, but not the first
black drum."
Local drum fishing expert Robert Walker was
also making big catches of black drum while fish-
ing at the tip of the St. Marys south jetty rocks
before the change in weather came Saturday. With
the winds blowing hard from the southwest,
Walker was looking hard for someone to join him
on his day of black drum fishing.
"I can't find anybody to fish with me today and I
signed up for the NSFA drum tournament last
night," Walker said. "Looks like it might be me and
my dog, Jody, fishing today. I'll stick the bow of my
fishing boat right into the waves and wind and
anchor up. My dog, Jody, always keeps me good
company too aboard our boat the Music Man."
Look for some of the best black drum fishing to
come right through this weekend. Once again, a
full moon arrives Friday. With a flood tide arriving
along the beaches at 9:52 p.m. Friday, beach visi-
tors will more than likely see plenty of fishing boats
anchored just off Main Beach.
Local drum fishing expert David Cartwright
actually landed the Florida state all-tackle record
black drum while fishing at night and just off Main
Beach. Cartwright's record drum weighed 96
pounds and was caught while fishing dead on the
bottom with fresh blue crab. When Cartwright's
record catch was made, it was also a full moon with
a flood tide arriving at 8 p.m. that same night.
Main Beach is actually a drum fishing hole that
was named several fishing seasons ago by area
drum fishermen and, during the peak of the black
drum fishing season, beach visitors at the footisteps
of Atlantic Avenue will often s.,: up )50.dr um ..n. u ,
boats anchored just northeast ofthe foot '6fAtlantic "
Avenue., A slight depression in the bottom of the
ocean attracts the annual run of black drum.
However, it seems that past drum fishing sea-
sons have proven that the tip of the St. Marys

Rester, son Jim and local drum fishing expert Forrest Evatt.


south jetty rocks offers the best black drum early
in the season. But, when a full moon arrives, the
Main Beach drum waters really produce the
largest black drum.
If you didn't see Jim Sutton's fishing article on
the annual Times-Union Roundup Spot Tournament
Sunday, you still have time to enter the popular
event. The maximum entries in the event is 500
boats, so don't wait to enter at the last minute.
Entry fee is $60 per boat and the deadline to
enter is April 4 or when entries have reached 500
boats. The popular fishing tournament has reached
its maximum of 500 boats during the past few tour-
nament seasons.

Purchase the right boat
With over 650,000 members,
Boat Owners Association of The
United States knows how to help
boaters find and purchase the

2. Once you have your eye on
a particular boat and before you
start negotiating, get a "Value
Check" at www.BoatUS.com/val
uecheck. Unlike "Blue Books,"
we'll share with you the actual
recent prices BoatU.S. members
paid for the same model.'
3. Sign Up: For the bimonthly
online BoatU.S. Classified Ads
newsletter at www.BoatUS.com/
ClassifiedsNewsletter. Take your
pick of powerboat, sailboat, fish-
ing boat and trailer boat classi-
fieds.
4. If the used boat you have
your eyes on could "talk" to you,
what would it say? Find out by
calling the BoatU.S. Consumer
Protection Database at (703) 461-
2856. It's the only source of con-
sumer complaints and safety
information reported by boat
owners, the U.S. Coast Guard,
manufacturers, marine surveyors
and marine technicians.
5. Get a professional look-over
from a marine surveyor who can
point out a boat's hidden flaws or
other items that may help you
negotiate a better price. You'll
find a roster of surveyors at
www.BoatUS.com/surveyors.

richness and depth that cap-

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

Library, in cooperation with
Florida Community College of
Jacksonville Nassau Center, will
host a Youth Health Fair to reach
parents/guardians and caregivers
of children from infants to age 17.
The fair will be held April 12

FCCJ Betty P. Cook Nassau

never, ever be taken without a
doctor or parent's clear direction.
Then off to the radiology area
and a visit with Angela Green.
She held up X-ray film and asked
the youngsters to identify what
the pictures might show. Hands
shot up and identification was
made. Some of the young group
had their own stories about hav-
ing X-rays done at the hospital.
The last stop was the hospi-
tal's cafeteria, where treats were
served and each child got a bag
to take home with them. The bag
was full of goodies - an official
gown, booties, games that teach
important health lessons and an
official Baptist Nassau T-shirt.
Each child went home with
strong memories of a friendly,
professional hospital and caring
professionals.
It is hoped that when they
have to go to the hospital they ,
will have a level of comfort and
confidence, thanks to their very
,special field trip.

with a wagging tail and a kind
face. Loyal to a fault. That is
what Pluto can be to you and
all he wants in return is a
home he can call his own.
Come by to see him. Ask if
you can take him for a walk
and get acquainted. All our
furry friends, canine and
Feline are looking for a forev-
er home.

ANIMAL CONTROL


This is Jenny from the
Block, and around the block
she has been, only to end up
here at the shelter with other
furry friends. But she still
loves us humans, no matter
what, and would love to go
home with one of us any
time.
She is very sweet and
would love to walk on the
beach with you, lie at your
feet as you read your book,
sleep by your bedside waiting
for a kind pat on the head.
Come by today and' see her
and all her friends.
And don't forget to
spay/neuter your pets and
give them their pet meds.
They depend on us. Don't let
them down.
And then there is Hope -
'To err is human, to forgive
canine."
Hope is deaf and can see
very little out of her beautiful
blue eyes. She arrived at the
shelter last week covered
with fleas and is being treated


for terrible fly bites. Hope is
a white bull terrier mix
approximately 6 months of
age. Who knows what Hope
has been through in her
short little life? The wonder-
ful thing is that, no matter
what circumstances she has
endured, she has come
through with a happy and
very loving disposition. Hope
is a poster girl for promoting
spay/neuter efforts and to
stop irresponsible breeding.
If you can foster or adopt this
wonderful sweetheart, please
contact Nassau County


Animal Care and Control.
Also, there is a special dona-
tion jar at NCAC to help pay
for medical care for Hope. If
you would like to contribute,
just drop by the office and
leave your much-needed
donation. Your help will be
greatly appreciated.
The shelter, located on
License Road in Yulee, will
be open for adoptions on
Saturday from 10 a.m.-2
p.m. For more information
call 491-7440 or visit
