GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
On Jan. 1, many traditionally
celebrate the beginning of anoth-
er year. But for many African-
Americans, it marks a celebration
of the day their ancestors began
life in this country as free people.
Dozens of people gathered at
the Greater Fernandina Beach
Church of God on New Year's Day
to commemorate President
Abraham Lincoln's signing of the
Emancipation Proclamation and
to reflect on the document's sig-
nificance today. The Nassau
County Branch of the National
Association for the Advancement
of Colored People (NAACP) spon-
sored the service, "Emancipation

signed the document announcing
his intention to free slaves, social,
economic and human rights issues
still threaten the freedom of their


descendants, civil rights leaders
have said.
"Even though the slaves were
free, a io chose to stay on the
plantation and continue to work
as slaves," said the Rev. Bernard
Thompson, the branch's immedi-
ate past president. "That slave
mentality still exists today."
"I'm a little nervous about
addressing the subject of emanci-
pation," said guest speaker Judge
Brian Davis. "To treat it lightly
would be an insult to millions of
Americans, black and white, who
gave their lives."
Davis, who presides over civil
cases in Florida's Fourth Judicial
Circuit Court, said the freeing of
slaves outlined in the proclama-
tion depended on a Civil War vic-
tory by the Union army.
"Our country had been at war
within itself for more than two
years," Davis said. "In essence it
was a war against greed and inhu-
manity." Florida was one of 15

A 50-year old Jacksonville man
was shot in the head Sunday as he
drove on AlA west of 1-95.
Robert Lumsden, 50, of
Jacksonville, was westbound on
A1A just east of Edwards Road at
the Timber Creek subdivision
when a bullet shattered his wind-
shield, hitting him in the head. The
shooting occurred about 2:30 p.m.
Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies, assisted by Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission officials,
scoured the area looking for the
source of the bullet, but turned up
nothing.
"He was just driving down A1A,"
said Lumsden's wife, Rita.

A Callahan attorney has pledged
to help Nassau County craft a law to
regulate sex-based businesses and
withstand a certain court challenge.
Gary Baker made his offer to
Nassau County Commissioners
during a hearing Monday to gather
testimony to establish the effects of
adult businesses. Commission
chambers were packed for a third
time with area residents opposed to
the Adam & Eve store soon to open
on AlA in O'Neil.
"I'm a Christian and I'm proud of
that fact," Baker said. "But I'm also
a lawyer. And I think it's time to
draw a line in the sand, a point of no
return. I pledge the services of my
law firm, free of charge. I think
there are other Christian lawyers
who will say the same." Baker said
the offer includes the services of
three attorneys and four legal sup-

Don't delay making a valid will


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader

It's something that most peo-
ple intend to do sooner or later,
but only 70 percent of Americans
ever get around to it. I am speak-
ing of making a will, that docu-
ment that designates just how
you wish to allocate your worldly
possessions and money when
you leave this world.
Many people feel they do not
have enough assets to warrant
the writing of a will. Not so!
Benjamin Franklin once said,
"You never really know a person
until you share an inheritance
with him." Loving relatives can
become very unloving when both
claim the same little pine table
that was part of their past.
A valid will not only settles
who gets what, it makes every-


thing far easi-
er on your
survivors.
And if you die
? K without one,
2. k- your estate
"- settlement is
handled by a
court-appointed administrator,
according to your state laws of
distribution and the result may
not be what you intended at all.
Your will covers intangible
assets, such as bank accounts,
etc. It also covers tangible assets
such as your home, car or real
estate property. Certain benefits,
such as life insurance policies
that already have beneficiaries
named, are outside the designa-
tions of the will and go directly to
the beneficiaries.
There are numerous personal
items in one's estate, and it is a


good idea to make a list of these
and the recipients of designated
items. Another way, chosen by
my parents for our large family,
was to have household furnish-
ings and personal possessions
appraised, and the value of each
item chosen by an heir deducted
from that heir's portion of the
estate. It worked beautifully.
A will also allows you to
choose an executor for your
estate, and name a guardian for
minor children. In Florida, any
person over 18 years old may
validly write a will. No particular
form of words is necessary if it is
executed with the formalities
required by law.
If you have a written will that
was validated in another state,
and you move to Florida, it is also
recognized as valid here.
There are forms available on


the Internet which allow you to
construct the will yourself. In
doing so, you must be sure to
have it witnessed and signed by
two persons present when you
sign it before a notary public,
who will stamp it with his or her
certification.
If you go this route, (and do so
only if your will is very simple), I
strongly recommend that you
have an attorney look it over and
confirm its validity.
Actually, it is not terribly
expensive to have a lawyer take
care of the whole thing. Just
remember that this is your final
communication to your loved
ones, and the wording should
reflect your own sentiments.

Orange shatters car window,


frightens driver on 14th Street


GLENDA S. JENKINS/NEWS-LEADER
Judge Brian Davis administers an oath to the Nassau County Branch's new NAACP officers.


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
When Judy Tipton heard her
passenger side car window shatter
as she drove on 14th Street on New
Year's Eve, she thought someone
was shooting at her.
The hurled missile turned out to
be an orange. But it was thrown
hard and accurately enough to shat-
ter that window, sending a cascade
of broken glass into her SUV.
"I thought I had been shot -
the glass went all over me," Tipton
said. "If anybody had been riding


with me, it would have hurt them
badly. It just blew up. I don't ever
want to hear that sound again it
was unbelievable. I am praying I
never have to hear that kind of
thing again."
Tipton, who is a middle school
teacher, saw a glimpse of children
throwing the fruit from an unat-
tended fruit stand near 14th Street
and Nectarine Street about 10:40
p.m. New Year's Eve.
"The kids were just pitching
them at cars as they wentby," she
said. "But I really don't think they
were throwing them at me. There


was fruit everywhere."
Tipton said the price to repair
her window has been quoted at
$400.
The Nassau County Sheriff's
report indicated that "an orange
was found in the roadway, which
was crushed as a result of striking
the window," the report read.
Tipton gave kudos to the speed
and concern shown by law enforce-
ment officials to investigate the inci-
dent.
"If it had been a bullet, it would
have killed me," she added. "I'm
glad it was fruit."


FREE Continued from 1A
Confederate states "that fought to
maintain an aristocracy supported
by free human labor," he said.
"Lincoln was publicly ambiva-
lent about slavery," Davis said,
Noting Lincoln's words, 'My para-
mount objective is to save the
union. If I could save the
union without freeing any slave, I
would do it.' But the president
also expressed "a personal wish
that all men be free," Davis
said.
Despite his conflicting beliefs,
Lincoln issued a preliminary
proclamation on Sept 22, 1862.
After finding an error in the
document, he postponed signing it
until after the new year. On Jan. 1,
1863, when he signed the
Emancipation Proclamation,
Lincoln said he felt confident that
he was doing the right thing, Davis
said.
"The lives lost in the Civil War
and in the Civil Rights Movement
represent the measurable cost of
freedom that we must never for-
get," .Davis said. "Freedom is not

free."
Some of the social problems
that impacted slaves continue to
impact African-Americans today,
Davis said.
Reports indicate that racially-
motivated hate crimes have
declined, "Hate is down; howev-
er, it is not out," he said. Lincoln
anticipated resistance to the
proclamation and gave former
slaves the right to defend them-
selves against physical harm,
Davis said.
"It is a mistake not to teach our
children, white and black, that hate
exists, that racism exists," Davis
said. "It is equally a must," he
added, to teach children that hate
and racism are not the only fac-
tors that negatively impact


African-Americans.
"Blacks spend a significant por-
tion of their income on depreciable
products," Davis said referring to
recent studies that show black con-
sumer spending in the billions of
dollars. "The only area where
blacks are cutting back on spend-
ing is on books."
True emancipation will come
from passing on to young people
knowledge of the past and sur-
vival skills for the future, Davis
said.
"If you have learned, teach. If
you have gotten, give," Davis said.
"Let us leave this celebration of

our children to work for a better
world."

"He has stitches in his head. He
is in pain, but he's doing good," she
said. "We're just praising the Lord
he's alive. If it had hit just a little
lower and hit his temple, it would
have got a major artery and it
would have killed him."
Rita Lumsden said the bullet
tore a hole in Lumsden's windshield
and as soon as he was struck, he
pulled over to the right side of the
road. He was bleeding profusely
from the left side of his head.
'"They never found the actual
bullet," Rita Lumsden said, sug-
gesting his injury was from a graze
or a fragment.
After her husband tried to flag
down four cars that passed with-
out stopping, he became desper-
ate, she said.
"He laid down in the middle of
the road," Rita Lumsden said. "He

Lumsden was driving from
Jacksonville to visit a friend in
Callahan to do some target shoot-
ing, Rita Lumsden said. He had his
own rifle behind the bench seat of
his 1995 Chevrolet pickup truck
but didn't bring it with hunting in
mind, she said.
"He does target practice on his
friend's property," Rita Lumsden
said. "He doesn't hunt."
Investigators found two .17-cal-
iber bullet jackets on the dashboard
of the truck, but Rita Lumsden said
those belonged to her husband.
"It was probably just a hunter
who let a bullet go astray," Rita
Lumsden speculated. "We may

Sad holidays for hurricane victims


T he holidays just weren't
the holidays for victims
of Hurricane Ivan a few
hundred miles west of
us.
The mood is not so festive
when your house is gutted and
your hope shaken, and the family
and friends and pets are
squeezed into a tiny government-
provided trailer parked in the
yard.
Clothes and toys and boats
are still strewn in the trees and in
the bushes. A compact disc lay in
a puddle with the words
"Johnson family vacation" hand-
written in red ink on it. High-
priced waterfront houses are
eerily vacant. Some look as
though they have been bull-
dozed.
The fact is they were, by a
mammoth surge of water and
gust of winds approaching 160
miles per hour.
Longtime residents of the
Florida panhandle never saw any-
thing like it and never even
imagined it. The damage of the
four hurricanes in Florida are
staggering (some estimates are


near $1 bil-
lion); Ivan
was the cul-
mination, and
one of the
worst storms
to ever hit
our mainland.
The
l cleanup and

"' al govern-
STEVE'S ment has put
MARKET a dent in the
mess. In the'
PIACE four months
since Ivan,
electric has been restored and
drinking water is safe to con-
sume and life has settled down
somewhat.
Some outlying areas miles
from the coast have not yet been
cleared of branches and fallen
trees and trash. It may be
months before federal and local
cleanup crews get to these areas.
This is because so many are in
need.
The biggest fear of weary res-


idents is that once the areas are
rebuilt, another storm arrives.
It's the same type of irrational
fear that people who have been
burglarized live with every day.
They have felt the sting of
someone breaking into their
home and stealing their posses-
sions. It is real and tangible, and
the fear of it happening again
lingers like a New Years Eve
hangover.
These people in the
Panhandle have had something
stolen also. They have lost their
confidence and lifelong dreams
to a visitor that was unwelcome
and unexpected.
The chances of a once-in-a-
hundred-year storm happening
again are remote, but they do not
seem that way.
The evidence and reminders
of what occurred are everywhere
you look. Some residents cannot
rebuild, either because they were
un-insured or under-insured.
Or, due to more-stringent
requirements, they must. rebuild
on wooden pilings or with
greater reinforcement and

all of this.
Some insurance only will pay
to replace what they had, not
what they must build by new
codes.
They have no option but to
relocate, or else come out of
pocket for unforeseen expenses.
These are the most unfortunate
stories.
Others will be able to rebuild
newer and better houses and
businesses. The after-effects of
the storm will become distant
memories. And lives will be
restored and things will be good
again.
But for now, the re-routed traf-
fic is frustrating, the inconven-
ience of living in a FEMA trailer
is nerve-wracking, and simple
things are still complicated. And
seeing a pristine area much
like ours look like this is
heartbreaking.
Americans are resilient, how-
ever, and hope still abounds that
the holiday season next year will
be a better one.
Steve Nicklas is a financial
adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5,2005/NEWS-LEADER


It's time to check,


correct credit report


With identity theft on the rise,
it's a good idea to check your
credit report at least once a year
and certainly in advance of apply-
ing for a mortgage or loan. This
will enable you to address any
errors before they wreak havoc
on your financial life, suggests
the Florida Institute of Certified
Public Accountants.
Getting copies of your credit
reports is easy. You can request
a copy of your credit report by
calling the three national credit
bureaus: Equifax (800-685-1111),
Experian (888-397-3742) and
TransUnion (800-916-8800).
The web sites for each agency
allow you to order your report
online. If you want a truly accu-
- rate look at your credit situation,
you should get a report from all
three major credit agencies
because they might contain dif-
ferent information.
The cost is generally $10 per
report, but in some states and
under certain circumstances the
report is free.
For example, if you applied
for a loan and were turned down,
you are entitled to a free copy of
your credit report, as long as you
make your request within the
specified time frame. You can also
get a free report if you are unem-
ployed, receiving public assis-
tance or believe your credit file
contains mistakes resulting from
fraud.
There are online sources (you
can get all three directly from
each agency) that will provide
you copies of your report from all
three agencies for one fee.
The report format from each
agency varies but with each
report you also receive a legend
or key that explains what the var-
ious letter and number codes
mean.
Begin review 9f your credit
report by verifying the accuracy
of the report's identifying infor-
mation such as your name, Social
Security number, current and pre-
vious addresses, date of birth and
employment history.
The main 'section of your
report contains credit informa-
tion about your accounts with
banks, retailers, credit card
issuersand other lenders.
The credit information sec-
tion typically includes the account
opening date, your credit limit or


loan amount, outstanding bal-
ance, monthly payment and pay-
ment record over the past sever-
al years.
Your report will also reflect
delinquent accounts that are
referred to a collection agency.
Another section of the report
includes public record informa-
tion such as bankruptcy records,
monetary judgments and tax
liens.
Inquiries, or the names of
those who requested a copy of
your credit report over the past
year, will also be identified.
Positive information remains
on your report indefinitely. Most
negative information remains for
up to seven years, and bankrupt-
cies remain on your credit report
for up to 10 years.
Be sure to go through the
entire report, entry by entry. You
have the right to dispute any
information in your report you
feel is false, incomplete or obso-
lete.
Inform both the credit bureau
and the creditor who reported it
of any errors.
You can file a dispute online,
by phone or in writing. A letter
should include your complete
name, address, date of birth and
Social Security number, in addi-
tion to details concerning the dis-
puted information. Send your
request via certified mail, return
receipt requested.
Once you challenge any infor-
mation, the credit bureau is
required to contact the creditor
and request that the creditor ver-
ify the information.
If you disagree with the find-
ings, you can file a short 100-
word or less statement giving
your side of the story.
Future reports to creditors
must include this statement or a
summary of it.
CPAs caution that there is no
quick fix for repairing your
credit record. Don't believe any-
one who tells you otherwise.
Only time, effort and an effective
personal debt repayment plan will
improve your credit report.
The Florida Institute of
Certified Public Accountants is
the professional association
representing the interests of
more than 18,400 CPAs with
over 4,400 offices throughout
Florida.

DR DOBSONANS E S O R U STO S


Q UESTION: Phglosophically,
I recognize the need to
take charge of my kids, but
I'd like more specifics. Give
me a step-by-step
approach to discipline that
will help me do the job
correctly.
DR. DOBSON: Let me outline siA broad
guidelines that I think you'll be able to apply
These principles represent the essence of my
philosophy of discipline.
Firsc Define the boundaries before they are
enforced.The most important step in any dis-
cipsnary procedure is to establish reasonable
expectations and boundarieE in advance. The
child should know what is, and what is not,
acceptable behavior before he is held respon-
sible for those rules.This precondition will elim-
inate the sense of injustice that a youngster
feel when he Is punished for his accidents, mis-
takes and blunders. If you haven't defined It
don't enforce It,
Second. When you are defiantly challenged,
respond with confident decisiveness Once a
child understands what is expected, she should
then be held accountable for behaving accord-
ingly.That sounds easy. but as we have seen. most
children wil assault the authority of their eld.
ers and challenge their right to lead In a moment
of rebellion, a little child will consider her par-
ents' Instructions and defiantly chose to dis-
obey. Like a military general before a battle.
she will calculate the potential risk. marhal her
forces and attack the enremy worth guns blazing


Dr.
James
Dobson


When that nose-to-nose confrontation occurs
between generations. it is extremely important
for the adult to win decisively and confidently.
The child has made it clear that she's looking for
a fight.and her parents would be wise not to dis-
appoint her!Nothing is more destrutdRe to
parental leadership than for a mother or father
to disntegrate during that struggle.When the
parent consistently loses those battles, resort-
ing to tear, and screaming and other evidence
of frustration. some dramatic changes take place
in the way they are "seen" by their chddren.
Instead of being secure and confident leaders,
they become spineless Jellyfish who are unwor-
thy of respect or allegiance
Third: Disunguish between willful defiance
and childish Irresponsibility. A child should not
be punished for behavior that Is not willfully defl-
ant.When he forgers to feed the dog, make his
bed or take out the trash when he leaves your
tennis racket outside in the rain or loses his bicy-
cle remember that these behaviors are typi-
cal of childhood It is the mechanism by which
an immature mind is protected from adult anx-
leties and pressures.
Be gentle as you teach him to do better. If
he fails to resDond to your natient Instruction.


it then becomes appropriate to admirister some
well-deserved consequences (he may have to
work to pay for the item he abused or be
deprived of itc use. etc.). Just remember that
childish Irresponsiblity is very different from will,
ful defiance, and should be handled more padent-
ly.
Fourth: Reassure and teach as soon as the
confrontation is over.After a vme of conflict dur-
ing which the parent has demonstrated his or
her right to lead (particularly if it resulted in
tears for the chld), the youngster between 2 and
7 (or older) may want to be loved and reassured
By all means, open your arms and let her come!
Hold her close and rell her of your love. Rocd
her gently and let her know.agan,why she was
punished and how she can avoid the trouble
next ume.This moment of rommunrcation builds
love, fidelity and family unltr.
Fifth: Avoid impossible demands.Be absolute-
ly sure that your child is capable of delivering
what you require Never punish him for wetting
the bed involuntarily or for not becoming potty.
crrined by I year of age or for doing poorly in
school when he is incapable of academic success
These impossible demand: put the child in an
Irresolvable conflict: There is no way ouLt.hat

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5,2005 BUSINESS News-Leader


COURTHOUSE COFFEE


SEX Continuedfrom LA
Adam & Eve attorney Lawrence
G. Walters suggested Dec. 28 that
communities that pass ordinances
restricting adult-based businesses
wind up paying attorneys' costs to
his firm.
"I say bring it on," Baker said.
"It's not a freedom of speech issue.
It's a quality of life issue. It's a
morality issue. And that means not
having this kind of smut shop.
We're not going to stand by and let
you destroy our community."
Marc Randazza, another attor-
ney representing Adam & Eve, was
the only speaker in favor of the
business. "I'm not here to persuade
you that erotic businesses should
be brought into your life," he said.
'"The Constitution mandates you
cannot ban expression based on its
content."
He said of videos to be sold from
an age-controlled section in the
back of the store, "if you find it
objectionable, you aren't required
to watch them."
Randazza dismissed studies pre-
pared by governments nationwide
to demonstrate negative effects cre-
ated by adult businesses. "These
studies do not apply to this busi-
ness," he said. '"This is not a con-
centration of adult businesses. This
is one store. You cannot compare
apples and oranges. This is not a
stereotypical store you see in sit-
coms from the '70s."
Randazza said the front of the
store would be no different than


Victoria's Secret or Spencer Gifts,
both stores commonly found in
malls.
"No one wants to damage your
community. No one wants to harm
your children," Randazza said
Eugene Grant, who lives near
O'Neal Memorial Baptist Church,
said he was unsure of that.
"I have four grandkids and three
are girls," said Grant. "I live for
them. I will fight for them. I am a
country boy, I love Nassau County,
and I will fight."
"Once St. Petersburg was a
good place to live until pornography
came in," said Pastor WJ. Franklin
of the Miracle Faith Church of God
in Yulee. "As a citizen and a
Christian, this is wrong. This is
why Sodom and Gomorrah was
destroyed. Once this comes in, the
trash that blows in your yard will
never blow out."
"I think it will have a negative
effect on families in Nassau
County," said CA McDonald, who
lives on Barnwell Road near the
shopping center on ALA that is to
house Adam & Eve.
Ed Gandy, Nassau County
Republican Party chair, pledged to


tell Toney Sleiman, founder of the
Jacksonville company developing
the shopping center, to "take that
store and run it out of here. If you
don't run it out, we'll run it out."
Neil Helton Pastor of Amelia
Baptist Church, ridiculed Adam &
Eve claims that it will establish a
tasteful, well-lit store.
"I've seen caskets come in plain
boxes and very ornate boxes. It
doesn't matter how it looks, it still
has a corpse inside it," Helton said.
"This pornography that is coming
our way has a very destructive
smell of death."
Dennis Todd, a child psycholo-
gist, said he has seen the effects of
the adult entertainment industry
on children.
"The influence with pornogra-
phy is not just money," Todd said.
"It is an addiction. Most of the kids
who have sexual problems have
been sexually abused and exposed
to sexually explicit materials. If the
camel gets his nose under the tent,
I'm going to be a lot busier."
The commission is expected to
schedule an additional meeting to
begin work on a new county ordi-
nance limiting such businesses.

owned by Neil and Tabitha Patton, Caf6 Vino, located in the Blockbuster shopping plaza near
the Yulee Wal-Mart Supercenter, will soon feature wireless Internet access for those who bring
laptop computers that have that capability.




Enjoying those new gifts?


Time to update insurance


With Christmas just behind us, many Floridians are
still discovering the wonders of their new big-screen
television, the speed of that new wireless laptop com-
puter, or the beauty of a new gold and diamond neck-
lace. But it's also a good time to ask yourself, "Would
my insurance replace these presents if they were
stolen or destroyed?"
The recent hurricane season has shown all
Floridians how important having the proper cover-
age for their home and possessions is. One of the
best ways to protect yourself from the serious finan-
cial impact of an unexpected loss is to make sure you
have enough homeowners or renters insurance to
cover a loss. having an up-to-date inventory of every-
thing you own in your home will speed your claim set-
tlement.
So before you pack all of those holiday decora-
tions and gift boxes away for the year, Allstate Floridian


recommends you take the following steps:
Make a list of all the contents of your home on
paper. After a storm, it's virtually impossible to remem-
ber all the things you've bought over the years, par-
ticularly when you're upset about a loss.
Videotape or photograph all the items that you
own. It also wouldn't hurt to describe on the videotapes
or on the back of the photographs the items and their
prices.
Keep your videotapes or photographs in a place
separate from your home, such as at your workplace
or a bank safe deposit box.
Update your inventory periodically. How often
you need to refresh it will depend un \when you make
new purchases.
See your insurance agent. Your agent will be able
to review your current policy and suggest additional
coverage for new items in your home, if necessary.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5,2005 OPINION News-Leader


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Concerned citizen alert
As a former Planning Advisory
Board (PAB) chair and member
for eight years, I am concerned
about the proposal by city officials
to restructure, consolidate, or out-
right eliminate existing city boards
("City plans new land use rules;
citizen boards might change," Dec.
22). It appears to me that this may
be an attempt by city leaders to
centralize power, in part by reduc-
ing the ability of citizens to effec-
tively express opposition.
One of the chief functions of
the PAB has been to provide city
officials including the commis-
sion, city manager and city attor-
ney with an independent opin-
ion regarding land use matters. In
my experience, most commis-
sioners valued this input before
they made their final decision.
Let's keep in mind that the com-
mission has the power to approve
or deny the selection of board
members. By reducing the signif-
icance of boards, city leaders may
drastically alter the existing
process of checks and balances
that experienced, knowledgeable
board members have historically
provided in the past.
Recently city officials have
attempted to circumvent and/or
alter the positions taken by the
PAB before they had reached the
city commission. The existence of
"developer's agreements" in which
top city officials would essentially
make a deal with developers on a
project represented an attempt to
exert influence on the PAB mem-


bers to accept the plan. A key play-
er in each of these instances was
the city attorney the result of the
unique Florida statute that in
essence allows the lawyer to func-
tion as a "sixth commissioner."
Any attempt to dilute or remove
boards from the land use process
should be a red flag for
Fernandinians. This city still has
undeveloped land, including poten-
tial annexed county land which is
at risk. Fernandina Beach would
not be the first city in Florida to
have been compromised by city
leaders who have, intentionally or
not, sold out to major develop-
mental interest groups. To date,
the boards dealing with land use
have provided an independent,
representative influence on deci-
sions which affect the quality of
all of our lives.

Getting away
with murder
I don't understand this ("6
months in jail for violating proba-
tion in stabbing death," Dec. 17). In
2003 Adam Hutchinson fatally
stabbed Christopher Ide. Whatwas
his punishment? A year in jail and
two years in a halfway house, with
the condition that if he breaks pro-
bation he goes to prison for at least
15 years. The Ide family gave him
a chance. They gave him the abil-
ity to change his life for the better
and to make something of himself.
When he was released from jail

after his one-year sentence, he was
to check into an in and out pro-
gram in Jacksonville.
Could he abide by this agree-
ment? If you were him would you?
Of course you would, if you were
truly regretful for what you had
done. He obviously is not. He left
the halfway house for four days,
didn't give any reason as to why or
what he was doing. Knowing he
was violating his probation and he
would be sent back to jail. Was his
plea bargain kept? No! A woman
from the program came into the
sentencing hearing and pleaded
on his behalf: "His father didn't
play catch with him as a child and
didn't read him books. He hasn't
known his mother. He really isn't
a bad person, he is truly regretful
for what happened. He cried hard
when I spoke to him."
I sat in that courtroom and lis-
tened to all this, appalled that these
statements were even being made!
Is he regretful? Has the Ide family
received a single note apologizing
for taking Chris's life? Does his
childhood have any bearing on his
actions as an adult? Does his daddy
not throwing around a ball with
him mean it's OK for him to stab a
16-year-old boy to death? Is that
all right? It seems so. Instead of
going away to prison for
manslaughter, he gets six more
months in jail, with time served.
He will be out walking the
streets again in 3 1/2 months. He
can see his friends and family. He
can move ahead with his life. He
was given a chance to be good in
life. He killed someone. He was
given a second chance by the vic-
tim's family. He violated his pro-
bation. Now our court system, the
one here to protect those people
who are good, honest citizens, has
given him yet another chance.
Sitting with the Ide family and
suffering along with them as
Adam's final sentence is passed
has told me one thing. We are not
safe. We can't rely on our judicial
system to keep its word and do
their jobs protecting us. Yes, keep
him in jail here, collect the money
for him, let him out, collect his
money for probation. Just don't,
God forbid, send him to prison
where he belongs. Don't adminis-


ter true justice. Let him get away
with it, again. Perhaps we can all
get away with murder.

much interest, but was appalled at
Carl Hiaasen's lack of knowledge
how the federal government oper-
ates.
Of course, being a columnist,
his primary interest is his readers,
so better to just push the alarm
buttons and fill the rest of his col-
umn with generalities.
Yes, I do agree (Defense
Secretary Donald) Rumsfeld's
response to (Spec. Thomas)
Wilson was curt and insensitive.
However, after more than four
years answering more than 20,000
questions (and in many cases,
"leading.") this was bound to hap-
pen.
First of all, only an expert like
Hiaasen would have anticipated
the need for body armor on vehi-
cles. Like John Kerry, his hind-
sight is omniscient. None of the
military leaders saw what he sees
so clearly now.
All the matters so clearly attrib-
uted to Rumsfeld required the
approval of all the channels of the
government. It's not nearly as sim-


pie as stated.
Finally, it's obvious Hiaasen has
never served in the military, active
or reserve. He might possibly
understand how the system works.
Not necessarily perfect, but it does
function reasonably well.
However, his job gives him free
access to the public to continue to
keep interested readers happy,
since there are a large number still
grieving over their election loss.
It's.really too bad he can't use
his influence to write a more con-
structive column.

Spruce up for


the Super Bowl
We're almost a month away from Super Bowl
Sunday, Feb. 6, the day of the big game for
Jacksonville and its environs, including Amelia
Island and Nassau County.
Thousands will visit to enjoy the spectacle of
the Super Bowl and the festivities leading up to the
game. Millions will watch it on TV.
This is a chance for us to shine, to put our best
foot forward and to reap enormous economic ben-
efits from the tourism and other activity that would
follow from a good impression.
To that end, we encourage all to undertake a
cleanup campaign to spiff up the city, island and
county.
Wherever there is trash, please pick it up. Hack
those weeds. Paint that fence.
Now is a good time to add luster to your home
or business.
We certainly want all of our public areas -
beaches, parks, downtown, roadways and neigh-
borhoods to look their best.
This is a good time to remove for good,
preferably those illegal signs that businesses
sprout all over our intersections and roadways to
advertise their wares.
We will benefit most from the Super Bowl if we
show off our best to visitors. Please do your part.
Keeping our town clean requires a team effort.


COMMUNITY THANKS

Shop with Cops
On Dec. 15, Fernandina Beach Police, in asso-
ciation with our local Wal-Mart, sponsored our first
"Shop with Cops" program. I have to say that I have
never been more proud of our police officers or
our community.
We all know that the resources of the givers and
careers in our community are stretched pretty thin
year after year. The fine people of this community
came through again this year and helped us touch
the lives of approximately 100 children.
What I saw that night went beyond anything I
would have expected. I saw very happy excited chil-
dren; I saw very appreciative parents, and I saw
officers that were so overwhelmed by the gift of giv-
ing that they were actually tearing up. I saw com-
munity residents that walked up to our table and
thanked "us" for caring and wanted to donate right
then and there. I saw the Christmas spirit
I would like to thank Don Monahan, project
director, Kathy Barrickman, Wal-Mart manager, all
the great people at the Barnabas Center, J&L
Graphics for our banner, and all the business and pri-
vate donors that made this event possible. I would
especially like to thank my fellow officers, and pas-
tors on patrol that volunteered their time.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5.2005 EDITORIAL News-Leader


We need g


don't know about you, but I'm looking forward
to the New Year, 2005. I look forward to another
spring training in Tampa, a family tradition,
another season of spectacular surf fishing and
the mental image of Georgia Bulldog players hoist-
ing the national championship trophy skyward
(well, actually that will be in January 2006) dances
joyfully in my brain. The old Carly Simon tune,
"Anticipation," comes to mind.
But it also promises to be a great year politically,
especially locally. At the county level, decisions post-
poned for many years will finally have to be made.
Commissions began painting themselves into a
political corner several years ago and the current
commission has simply run out of room. And voters
in the city of Fernandina Beach will get to vote on
several ridiculous questions posed to them by their
commissioners.
I can visualize the commercial now, "Anticipa-a-
tion is making me wait..." Well, unlike the stuff in
the commercial, the political catsup is about to start
pouring out. Consider just a few examples of what
awaits the local political enthusiast:
How's the county going to fund necessary
infrastructure (growth) costs and make that $2.3
million a year bond payment?
What's going to happen to the mediated coun-
ty/city settlement that called for a new county build-
ing on the 14th Street site? County commissioners
were to tear down the old building and construct a
new one, a $1 million city contribution was to ease
the pain. The new county coordinator has recom-
mended selling that property to help address
county debt problems, so what happens to the
agreement?
Without the new county building at the 14th
Street site, constitutional officers (clerk of the


-


citizens in 2005


court, tax collector, etc.) will
not have their primary offices
within the county seat,
Fernandina Beach. This vio-
lates the Florida constitution.
Will city conmmunissioners let
this happen, or will they, see-
't ing $1 million non-expendi-
ture, just look the other way?
H* ow is the county com-
mission going to re-build the
$10 million in reserves squan-
Ron Sapp dered by previous commis-
... sions? This re-building is cru-
cial, not only to the taxpayers
THE NO of Nassau county, but to re-
'SPIN' ZONE establish confidence in the
financial community.
How much longer is the county commission
going to allow the "cycle of the absurd" to continue?
The cycle looks something like this: 1) encourage
rampant growth in order to increase property tax
revenues, 2) rampant, poorly planned for growth
requires massive infrastructure costs, 3) unprece-
dented county spending spree siphons tax dollars
out of accounts necessary for infrastructure spend-
ing, reducing available tax dollars, 4) county decides
to increase tax revenues by abandoning growth
management practices and go back to 1.
Will the city commission finally make a deci-
sion on the future of the marina? What's going to
happen to the CRA? Will our city marina be exclu-
sively a commercial enterprise, or will there be
room for small boaters?
What's going to happen to Crane Island? Will
the city grant access? After all, the consent order
creating the possibility of an access was allowed to


It promises to be a great year
politically, especially locally.


die after the owners failed to seek another exten-
sion. Will a south end resort purchase the island?
Will that same resort purchase the Royal Amelia
Golf Course? Could that resort then access Crane
Island from Royal Amelia? Would that resort be able
to increase residential densities on Crane Island by
swapping units-per-acre with another of their proj-
ects? Hmm...
Will the city sell undeveloped lands in order to
finance various projects? Will city elections be
thrown into a grinder along with federal, state and
other local elections? Will terms for commissioners
be extended to four years and three seats come up
at the same time, allowing for instantaneous seismic
ideological shifts within the commission?
I guess we'll just have to wait and see on all of
these things, but I think you'll agree, 2005 has the
potential to be an exciting year.
I do hope that all of us will be not only watchers,
spectators as the year unfolds, but active partici-
pants in the political decision-making process. Inject
yourself into the fray. Help create the dialogue. Be
part of the debate. Be a citizen.
We can all sit by, fingers crossed, hoping our
elected officials make the right decisions, or we can
get involved and help craft the outcomes.
Again, let's be citizens.
Ron Sapp served on the Fernandina Beach City
Commission for 21 years. His column appears regu-
larly.

VIEWPOINT/PEGGY STANTON/AMELIA ISLAND


Return Christmas back to Jesus


"Happy Holidays"... Bah Humbug!
From reading all the recent articles and listening
to the commentary of audio and video talking
heads, I'm not the only traditionalist who longed to
hear "Merry Christmas" this season. A man shares
his birthday and look what happens. They steal it
from him! Christians do not have an objection to
other groups remembering their holidays. We sim-
ply object to having ours vaporized in the process.
Perhaps Mary Higgins Clark, who is fond of pen-
ning mystery novels around the Yuletide, can write
a new title, "The Case of the Stolen Birthday."
Consider how you would like to have your birthday
snatched from you. Consider also there would be no
Season without the original Reason. According to
CNN's statistics, 76 percent of Americans still identi-
fy themselves as Christians. As I recall, democracy
means majority rule. So now that the minority in
America dictate how we celebrate a holiday cher-
ished by the country's founders, what form of gov-
ernment are we?
Is East West and West East? Many years ago, just
before the fall of the Berlin Wall, my family and I vis-
ited East Berlin close to Christmas. We were star-
tiled by the evidence of a religious holiday in the
Communist sector, far more than was displayed in
free but proudly secular West Berlin.
With each succeeding year, merchants who love
to profit from all the gift giving, erase the chief Gift
Giver from his own day, in order to be "politically
correct." Sometimes their staffs rebel, as did a
young CVS clerk in Gross Pointe, Mich. "Merry
Christmas!" he said to a customer, "I'm supposed to
say 'Happy Holidays' but I figure, the hell with it."
To complain about religion being inserted into
the birthday remembrance of a spiritual leader is
akin to asserting that Martin Luther King Jr. day
should be a white man's holiday. Christmas in the


What would happen to the
"Happy Holidays"economy if all the
Christians 76 percent ofAmerica -
took their holiday out of it?


English vernacular means "Christmass," referring
to the liturgical celebration of Jesus Christ's birth-
day. How do you separate Jesus Christ from reli-
gion? By turning him into Santa Claus? Even here
we have a problem as Santa Claus is based on a reli-
gious figure, St. Nicholas, bishop of Tyra.
I propose a solution. Give Jesus back his birth-
day. Take it away from all those who find mention-
ing him offensive. Those of us who still care about
the real meaning of Christmas will celebrate it the
way it was celebrated for nearly 1,800 years. In
other words, no presents for anyone but the birth-
day boy. Generic gift giving on Christmas, after all,
is relatively new. It began in England during Queen
Victoria's reign where it undoubtedly spread to the
United States.
In Ecuador, even today, a young Ecuadorian man
told me, gifts are not prolific. The concentration is
on Jesus' birthday. The entire month of December
there are processions and festivals. In Quito,
Ecuador, the procession of El Niflo Viajaro (The
Traveling Child) is attended by thousands and lasts
about four hours. At the end of the procession is the
statue of El Niflo which many decades before trav-
eled to Rome and received a blessing from the Pope.
An American woman who is not religious said
Christmas in Ecuador was "wonderful." It is a time


to be with family and friends. "The concentration is
on people, not things."
Ah, but what about the children? What about the
children? Children do not come on earth expecting
to get presents. We educate them to greed. We cre-
ate Santa and go to all lengths to perpetuate that
belief. When a 5-year-old Amelia Island boy recently
was asked by his mother what he wanted for
Christmas, he replied, "nothing. I had my birthday.
It's Jesus' birthday." As the song says, we adults "act
more like children than children."
Think how returning Christmas to Jesus would
simplify the lives of three-quarters of America. Since
the only presents Jesus wants are things like love,
kindness, joy, peace, patience, charity, hope, justice
- we could simply skip the commercial scramble.
Think of the money we could save. All we would
need to do to make give him a happy birthday is
concentrate on being good to one another.
No frantic shopping. No expensive parties. No
trees to haul out and decorate. No excessive drink-
ing and driving. Just church celebrations, caroling
and sharing relaxed meals with family and friends.
No racking our noggin to figure out what to give
Aunt Isadora, who is never pleased with any gift you
give her. Or what to do with the pink plastic flamin-
go Aunt Isadora gave to you.
Those who object to Christian celebrating would
not have to participate. They can have their "Happy
Whatever" as one Amelia Island merchant phrased
it in a sign outside his gallery.
While this solution should please the ACLU,
politically correct lawyers, secularist judges and
atheists, one unhappy group may be the retailers. It
would be interesting to see what would happen to
the "Happy Holidays" economy if all the Christians
- 76 percent of America took their holiday out o
it.

troops had heard the camps exist-
ed before they saw them.
According to a 1945 Time
Magazine article, British Prime
Minister Winston Churchill had
warned his men the month before.
As he addressed them on the
banks of the Rhine on March 26,
1945, he said, "We are now enter-
ing the dire sink of inequity."
His words were an understate-
ment. Supported by the Canadian
Royal' Air Force, English Army
Units stormed in, killing what SS
guards had not already escaped,
Brocklebank said.
"They were all either shot
before we got there or escaped in
uniforms they stole from the pris-
oners," he said.
At first, the sheer atrocity was
too much to comprehend for Allied
troops. As the elite German SS
troops fled in the days before the
area's impending fall, many pris-
oners had been massacred or
moved into concentration camps
further in the interior of Germany.
But the Allied taking of Bergen-
Belsen, in the north center of the
country, clearly showed that Nazi
Germany was as doomed as the
50,000 civilians and 20,000 prison-
ers of war who had been murdered
there.
"The grave pits were made for
5,000," Brocklebank said. "The
corpses were all basically skin-cov-
ered skeletons. I don't know if they
put anything in there, but there
was virtually no smell whatsoever.
You wouldn't have known those
grave pits were there unless you
saw them for yourself."
Brocklebank said there was no
smell in the pit because at Bergen-
Belsen, the execution'method of
choice was starvation. The camp
was divided into three sectors, and
as prisoners moved from the first
to the last, they were fed less and
less. Finally, those eking out an
existence in the third sector -
men, women and children ate
only when a small truck would
dump a load of turnips for those
still strong enough to reach them.
During the month before the
British arrived, 17,000 people in
the camp died of starvation, and
they were still dying at a rate of
350 every 24 hours afterward.
They were the living dead until
their lives gave out, beyond the
help of their liberators.
The mass death at the camp
had been accelerated since
January, when Germans evacuated
camps closer to France, Belgium
and Holland, and crammed them
into Bergen-Belsen.
Thousands had died in over-
crowded, squalid conditions
beyond imagining.
Brocklebank took pictures at
Bergen-Belsen, but didn't know


what to do with them after they
were developed, he said. One of
his pictures, never before pub-
lished, shows thousands of victims
of Nazi Germany lying in a pit.
"I've always had them," he said.
"I didn't want to share them with
anybody."
In October, Brocklebank,
now 81, gave them to the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Museum to
add to its archive. They accepted

As his troops passed through
the camp, following the Brits deep-
er into Germany, they heard sto-
ries of things that happened there
which may have been truth or
myth. But after seeing the grave
pit, those men must have realized
that the unimaginable can indeed
be real.
"A man named Kramer had
been in charge of the camp,"
Brocklebank said. "Kramer's girl-
friend was a small woman named
Irma Greese. She used to strut
around the camp with two small
pistols on her hips. She had two

told that, and we were also told

Brocklebank's unit had arrived
in Europe in 1944, on the heels of
invasion forces that stormed onto
Normandy beach that June. His
was not a fighting unit, but a recon-
naissance wing, so they came in
right after fighting was done and
mapped the lay of the land.
"We were a mobile field photo-

His unit moved through France,
Belgium and Holland before arriv-
ing in Germany, following the
armies liberating occupied lands
battle by battle.
"We spent the winter of 1944-45
in Eindhoven, Holland, on anair-
field. After the German's Ardennes
drive was over, they had hit us pret-
ty bad, knocking out 240 of our
aircraft."
As they moved through the
countryside, the troops were cut
off from any information other than
radio broadcasts from German pro-
pagandist "Arnhem Annie."
"We never knew where we were
or how the war was going," he said.
"We never knew anything."
Like the English before them,
the Canadians crossed the Rhine
into Germany in late March 1945.
A month after the discovery of the
concentration camp at Bergen-
Belsen, V-E Day came, Germany


surrendered and Brocklebank
turned 22.
"I was in Lunaburg, Germany,
on V-E Day, on an airfield," he said.
"That was interesting, because that
airfield was where the Germans
had launched the V-2 rockets
against England. We were shipped
back to England in August of
1945 after spending three months
in Germany, just waiting," he
said.
Since Brocklebank, who was
born in Ottawa, Ontario, and raised
in Toronto, returned, he has had
several reunions with buddies from
the war. But they didn't talk about
the fighting and the death, he said.
And they didn't talk about what
they saw in April 1945 at the
Bergen-Belsen concentration
camp.
"I've kept this on the back burn-
er for nearly 60 years,"
Brocklebank said.

Mike Smith, one of the
founders of Joy to the Children,
calls Dawn Grant "an absolute
little miracle." As board presi-
dent for the past two years,
Grant oversees all the commit-
tees responsible for keeping
every aspect of the annual effort
coordinated.
Board member Charlotte
Bowling called Grant "a living
example of what it means to be
joyfully giving, especially at
Christmastime."
"There is nothing more
rewarding than having a positive
impact on a child's life," said
Grant. "You have the ability to
change their perspective on life
and help them to move down a
new path hopefully a happier
one.
"The best thing about being
part of Joy is seeing the smiling
faces of the children and their
families on Christmas Day," said
Grant "Children excited to see
Santa, overwhelmed with joy
when they get a gift they asked
Santa for... their dreams com-
ing true... and tears and
hugs of appreciation from the
parents."
Grant described the volun-
teer spirit at Joy to the Children

of Brantley, Camden and Ware in
Georgia and Baker and Nassau in
Florida may apply for these SBA
disaster loans.
"If you think you are going to
get everything you need from your
insurance settlement you may be in
for a surprise. Insurance seldom
covers all the costs associated with
repairing or replacing property
damaged by a disaster. I don't want
anyone to miss out on the addi-
tional help SBA can provide
through our low-interest disaster
loan program," said SBA Disaster
Area Director Michael C. Allen.
SBA offers loans up to $200,000
to repair disaster-damaged primary
residences. Homeowners and
renters are eligible for loans up to
$40,000 to replace personal prop-
erty such as furniture and cloth-
ing. Loans to businesses of all sizes
and non-profit organizations are
available up to $1.5 million to repair
damage to real estate, machinery
and equipment, and inventory.
Economic injury disaster loans
are also available to small busi-
nesses unable to pay bills or meet
operating expenses because of the
disaster.
Interest rates can be as low as
3.187 percent for homeowners and
renters and 2.9 percent for busi-
nesses with terms up to 30 years.
Loan amounts and terms are set
by SBA and are based upon each
applicant's financial condition.
Applications and program infor-
mation are available by calling the

Archeologists unearth remnants of Cumberland's past


KERRY O'HARE
Community Newspapers
Much of the history of
Cumberland Island is well docu-
mented with pictures, legal docu-
ments and oral histories. However,
before the Carnegies, the British
colonial forts and the Spanish mis-
sions, there are thousands of years
that remain a mystery.
Archaeologists on Cumberland
Island are digging and sifting
through thousands of years of earth
and unearthing small pieces of his-
tory.
"We can tell who was here when
and where they were," said
National Park Service archaeolo-
gist Steven Kidd. '"We are trying
to put together a puzzle with only a
few pieces."
Archeological studies indicate


that Native Americans inhabited
the island more than 4,000 years
ago. When European settlers
arrived there were at least seven
Native American villages on the
island that was named both
Tacatacoru and Missoe, the
Mocama Indian word for Sassafras.
Their shell mounds can still be
found today and provide these sci-
entists with a unique view of early
life on Cumberland.
On the bay side of Cumberland
Island, several archaeologists spent
the fall meticulously searching for
pieces to a 4,000-year-old puzzle.
In a 2-meter-by-1-meter area,
the archaeologists dig a hole up to
90 centimeters deep, keeping track
of layers, the coloration of the dirt
and the presence of shells, pottery
and anything else that may give
them an idea of what was going on


Finding arrowhead points more than 4,000 years
old are the highlight of a long day's work.


4,000 years ago.
"Our interpretations are that
there have been multiple occupa-
tions out here," said Kidd. "This
place has been consistently occu-
pied."
According to Kidd, archaeolo-
gists found hundreds of pounds of
oyster shells in the middens, a pre-
historic trash pile, usually com-
posed of shellfish, broken pottery
and stone tools. The presence of
the oyster shells gives a glimpse
into the diets of the inhabitantsf.
"They appear to have a real pref-


erence for oysters, either they had
a real liking for them or they were
just easier to come by," said Kidd.
The abundance of the oyster
shells shows why living on the bay
side was far more ideal than living
in the center or the ocean side of
the island.
'This is the ideal place for peo-
ple to live," said Kidd. "This was a
great place to get shellfish, to hunt,
and have access to fresh water."
Providing another glimpse into
the lives of the inhabitants are pot-
tery shards. Pottery types are dis-


tinguished by temper, the material
added to the clay to make it
resilient during the firing process.
They are also distinguished by the
decorations (or lack thereof) found
on the clay.
Cumberland Island archaeolo-
gists found 4,000-year-old Orange
Period pottery. The earliest ceram-
ics Orange Period were tem-
pered with plant fibers.
According to Kidd, the pottery
created by the inhabitants was used
for cooking and other household
purposes.
There are certain findings that
can make an archaeologists day.
And for these guys, finding arrow-
head points, more than 4,000 years
old, are a real treasure. The rarity,
age and craftsmanship make find-
ing these artifacts the highlight of
a long day's work.


The archaeologists bagged their
findings, keeping records of where
and when they were found, and
took them back to the lab in
Tallahassee.
There they will reconstruct the
site and draw conclusions from
their findings.
According to Kidd, archaeolog-
ical digs can answer a number of
questions, including, whether there
was seasonal and year-round occu-
pations or if inhabitants moved
around the island; if they had trade
or access to stuff off the island;
what social networks existed; and
how the pottery was used.
"We have to make conclusions
based on very little evidence," said
Kidd. "But, the pieces fit together
and we can get a picture of the lives
of these people who lived on this
island 4,000 years ago."


Tips to help your child


become
GINNY SEKULA
For the News-Leader
Many research studies hav
found that children who are read to
at home do better in school
Encouraging children to read help
transform reading from a basic ski
to. a learned behavior and an inte
lectual habit.
Educational experts agree tha
the more children read, the mor
they'll enjoy reading and the bette
readers they're likely to become. I
is Sylvan's belief that reading mus
be consistently presented as a pos
itive, engaging, interesting an
rewarding activity.
Sylvan offers the following read
ing tips for parents searching fo
ways to engage and interest thei
child in the wonderful world o
reading:
Read with your child. Yoi
can't start too early. You can't read
too much. Reading to children nur
tures an interest in language, word
and communication. For older kids
reading together can be fun and
interesting. Consider reading on
book together every month aloud
Take turns reading pages, chap
ters or major sections of the book
As this activity becomes a routine
it will not only help develop you
child's reading skills, buttwill als
create a basis for ongoing dialogue
and discussion.
Read together regularly

Pentagon may retire JFK


13 years ahead of schedule

JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
Community Newspapers


With budget cuts threatening
to retire the Mayport-based USS
John F. Kennedy next year, 13
years ahead of schedule, U.S. Rep.
Ander Crenshaw of Jacksonville
vowed Thursday to do what he
could to head off "a shortsighted,
slash-for-cash" budget decision.
The Kennedy is being consid-
ered for early retirement under a
Pentagon proposal to reduce the
number of aircraft carriers now
in service from 12 to 11.
As word of the proposal
spread, local officials prepared to
join Crenshaw in a fight to keep
the carrier at Mayport.
Retiring the Kennedy would
produce an estimated $250 mil-
lion impact to the community.
"Obviously, if the Kennedy
goes away and is not replaced, it
is a huge hole in the economy,"
John Meserve, mayor of Atlantic
Beach and a retired Navy captain,
said Thursday.
"We're going to take some
proactive steps to try to make sure
that doesn't happen,"
"This is the wrong decision to
make at this time," Crenshaw said
in a conference call with reporters
Thursday afternoon.
"On Monday, I wrote a letter to
the president and told him I had
been informed of this situation
and that I thought it was the
wrong way to go during a time of
war. To reduce our aircraft carri-
er force made no sense whatso-
ever," Crenshaw said. "We're
going to continue to make that
case, and hopefully the budget
that the president proposes on
Feb. 2 will not include this reduc-
tion."
Crenshaw's comments came
on the heels of a report in the New
York Times' Thursday edition that

RAY SHOUGH/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
The USS John F. Kennedy returns to Mayport Dec. 13.


suggested the 36-year-old
Kennedy, which was not expected
to be decommissioned until the
year 2018, may already be on the
chopping block.
The carrier returned Dec. 13
from a six-month combat deploy-
ment to the Persian Gulf and was
expected to undergo a $500 mil-
lion overhaul in June that would
keep the warship in dry dock for
up to 14 months. ,
Crenshaw and U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson of Florida said Secretary of
the Navy Gordon1 England
informed them of the P'iiuagin',
budget proposal last week.
"I think it's going to be difficult
to get the (Department of
Defense) to reconsider what
apparently is coming down the
pike," Nelson said in the confer-
ence call.
"I would say our first option is
to try and restore the funding
through our appropriations
process. Secondly, we always have
the option of setting by statute a
mandatory capability minimum
such as setting that there has to be
12 carriers."
U.S. Sen.-Elect Mel Martinez
of Florida said in the conference
call that "it may be late in the
[budget] process" to stop the
Pentagon's proposal of reducing
the carrier force by one in 2005.
The JFK is one of only two con-
ventional, or steam-powered, car-
riers in service. The other is the
USS Kitty Hawk, which, is four
years older than the Kennedy.
When it was relieved of service
in the Persian Gulf in November,
the JFK, which was commissioned
in 1968, was replaced on station by
the nuclear-powered carrier USS


Harry S. Truman.
Gov. Jeb Bush, who also par-
ticipated in Thursday's conference
call, said "it's appropriate" for the
Navy to maintain 12 carriers, add-
ing that it's also "important to
keep two carrier ports on the East
Coast."
Bush said he was also aware of
the Pentagon's carrier reduction
proposal, but didri't know for sure
if the Kennedy was targeted for
early retirement.
But, he said, "It is vulnerable."
In-aresponse to a question
p'sed h 'The I 'ai:inzgrun Pi,st,
Nelson speculated that the eco-
nomic impact of the Kennedy leav-
ing Mayport was "in the neigh-
borhood of $250 million."
The Kennedy's annual payroll
is close to $200 million.
Crenshaw said it would take
$65 million to upgrade' Naval
Station Mayport in the event a
nuclear carrier were to be sta-
tioned here.
Bush said a study on base
realignment and closures in the
state would be ready by March at
the earliest.
Meserve said he and others
are working with Crenshaw to "try
and make the Navy come to the
conclusion that it's a bad idea."
'"We're going to... talk to Navy
officials" and "explore our options
[as to] ... how we can influence
events," Meserve said.
"Do we have any influence at
the Washington level? I don't
know."
The JFK underwent a $330 mil-
lion overhaul in 2003. It made its
first major deployment since the
overhaul on June 7, returning
Dec. 13.

fires in

bedroom
Each year fire claims the lives of
5,000 Americans and injures more
than 25,000. Bedrooms can be a
common place of origin of fire.
Nearly 1,000 lives a year are lost
due to bedroom fires.
Children are in a high-risk group
for deaths in house fires. Children
commonly play with lighters, match-
es and other ignitable items in bed-
rooms, closets and under beds.
These are considered "secret"
places where there are a lot of
things that catch fire easily.
Children of all ages set over
100,000 fires annually. Children play-
ing with fire set over 30 percent of
fires that kill children.
Every year over 800 children
nine years and younger die in home
fires. Be sure to keep matches and
lighters locked up and out of reach
from children. 'Check under beds
and in closets for burnt matches,
evidence your children may be play-
ing with matches. Teach your child
that fire is a tool, not a toy.
Appliances need special atten-
tion. Bedrooms are the most com-
mon room in the home where elec-
trical fires start Electrical fires are
a special concern during the winter
months that call for more indoor
activities and increases lighting,
heating and appliance use.
Do not trap electric cords against
walls where heat can build up.
Take extra care when using
portable heaters. Keep bedding,
clothes, curtains and other com-
bustible items at least three feet
away from space heaters.
Only use UL-listed electric blan-
kets and warmers. Check to make
sure blanket cords are not frayed.
Never smoke in bed.
Replace mattresses made before
the 1973 Federal Mattress Flam-
mability Standard.
Finally, having working smoke
alarms dramatically increases your
chances of surviving a fire. Place-
at least one smoke alarm on each
level of your home and in halls out-
side bedrooms. And remember to
practice a home escape plan fre-
quently with your family.

Improved

fags should

show more

resolve in '05

apply New Year. Oh,
and happy end of
Sthe football season
to all you die-hard
Jaguars fans who won't both-
er to turn on the tube after
your team's playoff hopes
went down the tube over the
weekend.
No one who's a realist
expected Jacksonville to be
playing in Alltel Stadium after
January. But that the Jags
had to rely on losses by two
teams Buffalo and Denver
who played the JV squads
of Pittsburgh and
Indianapolis respectively on
Sunday, has got to be so frus-
trating for Jacksonville fans.
Because Denver didn't do its
part and lose, the Jaguars
won't play another meaning-
ful game again until
September. Of course, the
Jaguars didn't do their part
last week against Houston,
where a win would have at
least given them control of
their own destiny in Oakland,
where they won 13-6 on
Sunday.
Looking on the bright
side, a 9-7 final record is an
improvement over five sea-
sons past. Maybe Jack of the
River will have something
more in store for the River
City in 2005...
Del Rio had reportedly
talked to LSU officials about
their head coach opening and
was considered a serious can-
didate to replace Nick Saban
last week before he pulled
the plug on an interview with
the Tigers. Good move, Jack.
Don't jump into the snake pit
that is the SEC, especially fol-
lowing the legacy of Saban.
Just ask former Florida head
coach Ron Zook about that
situation...
Turns out the University
of Florida football team could
have used Zook's coaching
talent during their Peach
Bowl loss to Miami last week-
end as special teams coor-
dinator, that is...
Speaking of the football
Gators, rumor has it that
lame duck offensive coordi-
nator Larry Fedora had been
prancing around campus ,
sporting University of Illinois
apparel leading up to the
Peach Bowl.
In hindsight, UF Athletic
Director Jeremy Foley proba-
bly should have helped
Fedora pack right after he
told Zook to beat feet up to
Illi-noise...
Meanwhile, Florida State
made an impressive showing
in the Gator Bowl on New
Year's Day. The only draw-
back is that junior RB Leon
Washington is now likely
going to bolt for the greener
pastures (or money) of the
NFL, after pacing the FSU
offense with 195 yards on
only 12 carries against the
Mountaineers.
Something tells me the
'Noles will find an apt
replacement, however...
This song was reportedly
heard outside of 95 percent of
FSU fan households Saturday
night: "Ding dong, Chris Rix
is gone, sing it high, sing it
low, ding dong the bad Chris
Rix is gone."
Rix tried his best to ruin
Washington's productive day
but fell just short Adios, ye
of abundant natural talent but
little brain power...
Forgive me, Florida State
fans, for I have sinned. I said
early on after the Seminoles
basketball squad lost to a few
high school-caliber teams
that they would be lucky to
win a game in the ACC. Well,
they handled what was sup-
posed to be an upper-echelon
SEC team, the Florida
Gators, 82-69 last Saturday
and looked impressive doing
it.
So maybe the 'Noles are
good. Or even great. Or
maybe Florida is a junior
high school-caliber team.

The competition was stiff last week in the 16-teamn
Hickory Point Invitational hosted by the Leesburg
High School soccer team. The Pirates went 2-2, tak-
ing down 10-0 Spruce Creek, ranked No. 6 in 6A at the
time, in the third match of the tournament.
"It was a tough tournament," Fernandina Beach
High School Head Coach Daniel Frome said."'There
were a lot of good teams. To lose to the runnerup and
be competitive with them 1-1 says what kind of tour-
nament it was."
The Pirates opened Dec. 28 against Evans out of
Orlando. Garrett Dees scored the lone goal in the
match in the first half, securing a 1-0 win for the
Pirates.
FBHS fell 3-0 to Boone out of Orlando, the eventual
tournament champions, on Dec. 29. The game was
knotted a 0-0 at halftime.
"We played a good first half," Frome said. "The sec-
ond half, we gave up a goal and our heads went down.
We couldn't straighten things out after that. We got
frustrated."
Boone was 12-3-1 heading into the match.
Spruce Creek, the Pirates' next opponent, was
unbeaten and sporting a 10-0 record heading into the
Dec. 30 match.
The Pirates beat the No: 6 team in 6A by a score
of 1-0.
Emery Ward's goal broke the scoreless halftime
stalemate. Winston Overton got the assist.
Sophomore goalkeeper Mike Wilson recorded
nine saves in goal for the Pirates
"That was definitely the best game I ever saw Mike

OUTDOORS






Out the door with '04, new season ahead


M any area fishermen
are delighted that
the 2004 fishing sea-
son has been swept
out the door and we have an
entire new 2005 fishing season to
enjoy.
Cold water temperatures
along the beaches of Northeast
Florida continued to produce
poor fishing conditions for a vari-
ety of sum-
mer saltwa-
ter species
including
cobia, king
mackerel,
Spanish
mackerel,
tarpon and
red drum.
During the
Terry Lacoss 22nd annual
Nassau
SSport
OUTDOORS Fishing
Association
Kingfish Tournament, most of
the winning kings were landed in
Georgia waters. Paul Massey
and his "Outrageous" fishing
team weighed in the largest
kingfish of the tournament at
37.30 pounds.
Cold water temperatures con-
tinued through the 24th annual
BellSouth Greater Jacksonville
King Mackerel Tournament,
where most of the wining fish
were also landed from Georgia's
Gray's Reef. Kenny Crawford
weighed in a real smoker king
during the VIP portion of the
world's largest kingfish tourna-
ment at 40.50 pounds. Bo
Stevenson and his fishing team
took 11th place in the aggregate
division of the general tourna-
ment and Jim Wormhoudt took
14th place in the big fish catego-
ry.
Gary Palmer caught and
released what may have been the
largest kingfish of the event the
day before the GJKT. Palmer
fished in the very same spot dur-
ing the tournament and was not
able to catch the same kingfish.
Well-known jetty fisherman
Lonnie Freeman weighed in the
largest black drum during the
NSFA's annual Drum. Fishing
Tournament at 77.60 pounds,
Most of the big drum were once
again landed just behind the surf
off Main Beach.
Capt. Allen Mills fished
aboard the "Hallelujah" sport *
fishing boat with owner Mallory
Smith to take first place in the
third annual Amelia Island Blue
Water Fishing Tournament.
Mallory's son, Jordan, actually
caught and released the winning
fish, a 6-foot sailfish.
Charter Capt. Benny Hendrix
guided Gordon Davis to a poten-
tial world record-breaking 20.22-
pound Big Scale Pomfret. For at
least 24 hours no one could iden-
tify the unusual catch, which had
to be correctly identified by the
IGFA.
Herman Albertine took first
place in the 10th annual Knox
Wyatt Memorial Sea Trout
Tournament and was also on the
winning team for the grand slam
and aggregate sea trout cate-
gories, while fishing with Capt.
Terry D. Lacoss, Paul Bragger
and Steven Comley.
Jesse Stubbs weighed in the
heaviest stringer in the grand


TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Red snapper fishing during 2004 was nothing short of phenomenal with big catches or genuine snapper being taken up to 30 pounds. Capt. Cris Holland, sec-
ond from right, and his "Misti Lynn" sport fishing boat took this catch of snapper.


slam category during the 19th
Annual NSFA Trout
Tournament Stubbs fished solo
and caught all three species,
including sea trout, flofinderfbrid
red drum.
Red snapper fishing contin-
ued to improve during the 2004
fishing season with many fishing
boats catching their limit of red
snapper weighing up to 20
pounds. Grouper fishing was also
excellent with many gag grouper
weighing over 20 pounds. In fact,
the bottom fishing was so good
during the 2004 fishing season,
many area saltwater fishermen
switched from trolling to drift
fishing.
Tarpon fishing was very slow
last year due to cold water tem-
peratures, and during the peak
fishing season, only a handful of
tarpon were hooked.
There was, however, a big run
of red drum during the fall fish-
ing season at both the Nassau
and St. Marys inlets. Some inlet
fishing boats were catching and
releasing up to 50 red drum dur-
ing a day of fishing. Many of the
red drum weighed between 20-
30 pounds and were caught with
fresh shrimp or cut baits fished
right on the bottom.
Backwater fishing during the


Dwight
Griffis land-
ed this nice
wahoo
aboard Capt.
Allen Mills'
"Wahoo"
sport fishing
boat Wahoo
continued to
be one of
Amelia
Island's
favorite game
fish during
2004.


2004 season had its good
moments with a big run of red-
fish during the spring fishing
season and during the month of
Septeuibtr. Area'fishermefn were
reporting a lot of undersize red
drum in the backwaters, which is
a good sign for the upcoming
season.
Flounder fishing was definite-
ly slow in the backwaters, along
the beaches and at the jetty
rocks last year, while most of the
good flounder catches were
caught by offshore drift fisher-
men. Sea trout fishing was fair
last season with some of the best
catches being made during the
month of December. Good num-
bers of 3- to 6-pound sea trout
were taken during the summer
months with topwater lures.
Surf fishing continued to
improve along the beaches of
Amelia Island, particularly at the
south end where the new rock
jetties are now in place.
Some of the biggest large-
mouth bass in many years were
caught from Rodman Reservoir,
including Jim Werling's 13.4-
pound black bass.
You can help improve our
fishing during the 2005 season
by practicing catch-and-release.
Good luck!

Christmas in New York


Many of you who
stayed home are
probably gloating. No
lost luggage, nights in
airports or holiday surprises. We
were lucky compared to most,
but we had a little unexpected
surprise on our Christmas trip to
New York City. Lost luggage.
Everything that could go
wrong did go wrong for many
traveling this Christmas. First
weather snow storms slowed or
brought travel to a complete halt.
A record number of travelers mis-
calculated and took to the roads
or skies this holiday. They found
themselves in a traveler's night-
mare roads closed and flights
canceled.
Take bad weather, too many
people trying to go too many
places, not enough support per-

sonnel and
you have a
recipe for
disaster.
We
should
have known
there was
trouble
ahead when
we arrived
at the
Jackson-
ville airport.
Things
were not
merry. We
made our


way past a long line of people
snaking their way through the air-
port. They had that look of people
who have been in line for a long
time. We heard the dreaded


words "canceled flight" repeat-
ed over and over again.
We persevered. Our flight was
on time and should leave as
scheduled we were told. We
checked two bags through to
New York. Or we thought we did.
It seems two adults but only
one suitcase made it to LaGuardia
airport. The missing bag? Mine,
of course. After filling out the lost
bag paperwork, the folks at Delta
assured us that the bag would fol-
low and probably arrive within 24
hours.
Big Guy took it all in stride -
easy for him after all it was my
bag that became a statistic in the
lost luggage nightmare that devel-
oped over the holiday weekend.
When I reminded him that no lug-
gage for me meant no Christmas
presents for Big Guy, his concern

increased.
What could we do? We were
thankful that we reached our des-
tination when so many travelers
did not. I programmed the Delta
Airlines lost baggage 800 number
on my cell phone and continued
to recall it every few minutes for
three days. Same result busy,
You appreciate the little things
when your luggage is lost. Things
like a change of clothes, a night
gown, clean underwear or a curl-
ing iron. A black turtleneck
sweater, black slacks and scarf
became my uniform. As it turned
out no one in New York noticed. It
seems that everyone in New York
wears black all the time anyway,
so I fit right in.
As we watched the television
and realized we were not alone,
we felt some relief but little hope.


We watched forlorn looking trav-
elers, many who never left their
departing airport, searching
through mountains of mostly
black luggage.
We were determined to enjoy
New York and not let a wardrobe
malfunction ruin it. A mini-shop-
ping spree added a little color to
my basic black clothing options.
We toured the city, took in some
shows and memorable meals.
New York is a great city change
of clothes or not.
The missing bag? It arrived at
the hotel as we were checking out
to go home.

Joy wrapping party
The gift wrapping party given by Joy to the Children Dec. 23
seemed to bring joy to the volunteers.
Fifty-three families attended the Joy to the Children Christmas
party and dinner at Yulee Elementary School on Dec. 25. Joy to
the Children, a non-profit organization, formed in 1995 to pro-
vide Nassau County's economically disadvantaged children and
their families clothing, toys, entertainment and a complete holi-
day feast on Christmas Day. Restaurants donate the meal and vol-
unteers serve it.
Volunteers also go shopping for toys for every child, Joy board
member Mary Jo Morrison said. And that's what the wrapping
party is all about.
Clockwise from above, Paul Wright and his wife Terri Ridgell
work together to wrap their bag full of gifts. Joy to the Children
board member Dawn Grant fills bags with stocking stuffers.

International dog show set for Tampa


NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY


Will it be the wiry Whippet or
the bulky
Bulldog? Maybe the tiny terrier
or the mighty Mastiff? Anything
can happen when the world's most
competitive and coifed canines
compete for the crown at the 2005
AKC/Eukanuba National
Championship, Jan. 15-16, in
Tampa.
This international event, fea-
turing a slate of thousands of the
finest dogs from around the world,
will be televised live by Animal
Planet and the Discovery Channel,
starting at 8 p.m. both nights.
The Tampa Convention Center
will house the Agility and
Obedience events, as well as the
breed judging for all 153 breeds
registered with the AKC. One dog
from each breed will advance to
the evening group competitions,
then only seven to the "Best in
Show" at the nearby St. Pete
Times Forum.
. Dog lovers across the country
are expected to watch in record
numbers.
In fact, according to a recent
survey by American Kennel Club
(AKC) and lams, 88 percent of dog
owners are more likely to watch a
dog show on television today ver-
sus just 10 years ago. Last year's
event was the highest rated dog
show in Animal Planet history.
This year, television viewers will
choose their own Best In Show
winner. Viewers can cast their


votes at animal.discovery.com to
determine the Viewers' Choice
award, which will be presented on-
air immediately following the
judges' Best In Show decision. The
viewers' Best In Show winner will
be recognized with a $10,000 dona-
tion to the AKC parent club for that
breed.
Also noted is an lams Viewers'
Choice award for one lucky dog in
each of the seven groups of com-
petitors (herding, hounds, sport-
ing, non-sporting, terrier, toy and
working dogs).
Each individual winner will
receive $2,000 earmarked as a
donation to the AKC parent club
for its breed.
Additionally, patrons in the
Tampa area are invited to see the
show for themselves. Tickets are
on sale at www.ticketmaster.com.
Patrons can order online or call St
Pete Times ticket information at
(813)301-2500 (for group sales, call
813/301-6900) or visit the St. Pete
Times Forum ticket office. Adult
admission for the two-day cham-
pionship is $25, $20 for seniors,
and $10 for children (children
under 2 are free). One ticket is
good for attendance at both days of
the event (Ticket prices for one
day are $18, $15 for seniors, $5 for
children and free for children
under 2.)

HELPERS


The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10095 and its Ladies
Auxiliary were busy over the holidays trying to help Santa.
Their first project was a donation of "Shoe Boxes" to the
Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child program. Each year
hundreds of thousands of "Shoe Boxes" filled with school supplies,
toys and personal hygiene items are collected and then distributed
all over the world to needy children. Franklin Graham, son of the
Rev. Billy Graham, is the president of the organization.
The post and auxiliary collected food from the members and
then distributed 12 food baskets to area families needing a little
extra help.
They did not forget the veterans in the VA Hospital at Lake City.
They furished 25 "ditty bags" fifed with canteen books, socks,
Christmas cards for them to send to their families and personal
comfort items. They also fumished food and entertainment at the
Dec. 19 Christmas party. Each patient in the hospital received a
"ditty bag" furnished by the VFW Posts and Auxiliaries in District 6,
Duval, Nassau, Clay and St. Johns counties.
The last project was the adoption, for Christmas, of the 11 (9
male and 2 female) veterans at Day Spring Village. Each received
at least three gifts. The post and auxiliary also sent six boxes to
service members In Iraq.

Hi, I'm Shadow and I've
got a great story to tell. It
starts last October when my
mom, my sister, my brother
and I were in a cage at
Animal Control, sick with
upper respiratory infections.
Along came some Cats
Angels who took us and 26
other kitties to another place
to care for us till we got well.
They got us all tested,
spayed and neutered, vacci-
nated, the works you could
say, just all fixed up! I was
the shy one, that's why they
named me Shadow. First my
friendly brother got adopted,
then sister Juliet right after.
My mom, Stacey, went home
with some really nice peo-
ple. They came from Georgia
to-the new Cats Angels Shop
& Adopt thar's not reallv3
open yet, but has served as
our cat home for the past


few months. Yeah, it's right
there on Eighth Street next
to Best Friends Cards &
Gifts, next to Huddle House,
across from Taco Bell. The
shop will be open for real in
mid January and is looking
for volunteers to help, so
call 321-2267.
But let me finish my tale,
because last Saturday the
wonderful Angels took me
and a bunch of other kitties
all the way to Rhodes
Furniture in Orange Park.
Those ladies worked so
hard, setting up tables and
cages, with our food and lit-
ter, but bless them, my for-
ever family came and found
me that day!
Not only did I get my New
Year's wish that day, but 21
otheif Cats Angels kitties gt
adopted too! 2005 might be
the "Year of the Cat."
