Builders: Impact



fee study flawed


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
A study calling for school
impact fees in Nassau County is
flawed and "skewed against new
development," a builders' group
is charging.
According to its analysis of the
study by Fishkind and Associates
of Orlando commissioned by
the Nassau County School Board
in December 2003 a school
impact fee on new development
may not be justified.
The group, the Northeast


Florida Builders Association,
argues ad valorem taxes and other
existing revenue sources will be
sufficient to fund new schools as
the county grows, at least through
2013.
Fishkind has predicted at least
a $25 million shortfall over its 27-
year forecast.
In its analysis the builders'
association calls this and other of
the study's data into question. The
Fishkind recommendation "that
the county begin implementing
impact fees now in order to main-
tain capacity in light of the pro-


jected $25 million is based on
many errors and unfounded
assumptions," it states.
Asked whether the Northeast
Florida Builders Association is
pushing for no school impact
fee, associate director Daniel
Davis said, "The association is
looking forward to working with
the school board and county
commission to help the county
commission make a good deci-
sion. .... a good solid decision
based on good solid numbers."

News-Leader There is an open forum at


A guide to high school educa-
tional requirements and a smooth
track to a new Yulee high school
topped the Nassau County School
Board's list of goals for the new
year.
School board members, meet-
ing in a special session Thursday,
said ift's important that parents and
high school students understand
what classes are needed to gradu-
ate and advance to a higher edu-
cation or the workforce.
They will formally adopt their
list of goals at their regular meeting
Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the dis-


tic Ave.
t6 p.m.


Board members suggested
each high school have a curricu-
lum guide like "Mainsail," used at
Fernandina Beach High School to
outline different course and grad-
uation requirements for students.
"We need to somehow stream-
line the information process (to
give) accurate criteria for gradua-
tion, promotion and dual enroll-
ment," board member Kathy Burns
said.
"Part of the problem is that a lot
of the parents don't know the
scheduling," said board Vice Chair

Area homeowners have vowed
to appeal to the circuit court a deci-
sion Tuesday to allow a group
home to build three residences and
an administrative office on
Hendricks Road in Nassauville.
Nassau County Commissioners
upheld the project's earlier
approval by the Conditional Use
and Variance Board despite claims
by the homeowners and their attor-
ney that it violates land use ordi-
nances, will devalue their property


and add to traffic on CR 107.
The Amelia Island Care Center
plans to build three residences with
eight bedrooms each on the 10.2-
acre lot. Each will have two large
roll-in showers, a large bathtub, a
kitchen and gardening and exer-
cise rooms.
A separate administrative office
will have about five employees who

'Blessed with a wonderful close family'


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Helen Brooks Love was in a
hurry to get here and in no rush to
leave. "I was born before the doc-
tor could get there," she says of
her birth in Jacksonville in 1908.
She came into the world on
New Year's Eve, and this year her
family of three children, 10 grand-
children and 16 great-grandchil-
dren gathered for a celebration of
her 96th birthday.
It's been a busy life since grad-
uating from the former Jacksonville
Duval High School in 1926. "I was
not one to sit at home," she says. "I
loved to come to Fernandina,
where I had an aunt, Christine
Ferreira, who owned a horse and
buggy. I would ride with her when
she delivered eggs to Sturge's
Grocery on Sixth Street."
The family visited Fernandina

frequently, and decided to move
here and open a seafood restau-
rant in 1930. It was called Nell's
Kitchen, and was located at Five
Points. Unfortunately the business
was short-lived, burning down less
than three years later. They then
worked and lived at Bonnie View
Dairy in Fernandina Beach, which
had been in the family for years.
Remodeled, it was the family home
until it was torn down last June.
Always active in school, church
and community, Love made pies
for the Methodist Church and
would load up as many as 40 and
deliver them, a service which she
enjoyed and which brought her
some extra money. She and her
brother, Preston Adams, had a
restaurant on the beach, and she
also helped him at his "Ice Cream
Bar" next to the Palace Saloon. As
lovely as she was active, the popu-
lar and attractive young woman


was chosen as Miss Fernandina in
the early 1930s.
In 1941, she married Windle
Brooks, who worked on the start-
up of Rayonier, then became a food
inspector for the state. They had
three children, Windle Brooks III,
who lives in Pembroke Pines; Linda
Allen, of Gonzales, La.; and Sandra
Leader, of Prairieville, La. Brooks
died in 1981.
The following year, an old high
school sweetheart, Henry Love of
Jacksonville, got in touch, and they
renewed the earlier friendship.
When they married, Henry's three
children expanded the family cir-
cle.
Helen Love became manager
of St. Peter's Retirement Home on
14th Street, which was owned by
the Episcopal church, then worked
in the State Attorney's Office in

at Macedonia Baptist Church. Mr. Wright was
born Aug. 25, 1917, in Tisonia.
His 87 years on earth spanned mountain
tops and valleys.
He was a successful business man and dairy
farmer. He began his dairy farm with six cows
at the age of 19. He expanded his herd to over
3,000 cows. He milked his last cow on his 70th
birthday, Aug. 25, 1987.
After closing the dairy operation, he began
an expansive commercial beef cattle operation.
He remained hands-on, mowing pastures with
his John Deere Tractor with his faithful dog,
"Jackie Dee," at the age of 87.
Mr. Wright was a 32 Degree Mason, a

and served on the Board of Directors of the
Baptist Children's Home. He also served as a
deacon and superintendent of Sunday School at
the Macedonia Baptist Church and the First

He was a director of Upper Florida Milk
Producers and served with the committee of the
Soil and Water Conservation Board.
He was also a member of other civic and
agricultural related organizations.
Mr. Wright was an avid Florida Gator

William Lloyd, William Peter and Glenda Wright
Jr., Vicki and Shelley Whitty, Arlene and Perry
Davis and Richard Paul Wright. He also is sur-
vived by 23 grandchildren and 41 great-grand-
children.

Lane."
He is survived by six sisters, Pauline Dasher,
Marie Callahan, Josephine Murley, Agnes
Smith, Norma Perret and Elsie Kennett; one
brother, Cecil H. Wright; one sister-in-law,

LOVE Continued from 1A
Fernandina Beach in the child sup-
port department for five years.
"As busy as she was, mother
always had time to take us all to
music lessons, Cub Scouts,
Brownies, Civil Air Patrol, football
and cheerleader practice," said
Leader. "She found time for every-
body.
"My mother is an angel, sent
from heaven to spread His love. She
thinks of everyone else first. She
has taught us the values of life, if not
in words, by her actions. The three
of us want to be just like our moth-

citation expense for the golf course,"
Scanlan said. "That money should
have been put in reserve. Then you
build up over multiple years the
money you need to replace some-
thing when it depreciates."
"You have to maintain things as
you go along," said Victoria Robas
of South Seventh Street. "Have we
gotten to that point where in order
to pay the light bill we have to sell
the recreation center?... We don't
need to sell city property in order to
pay for infrastructure replacement
and improvements that should be
handled on an annual basis."
The city needs outside help "to
see what is a good remedy for this,"
Mearns suggested.
"We're doing OK.... But there's
not enough money coming in and
coming over to be put aside," he
said. "And that holds true for all the
enterprise funds. ... If an enter-
prise fund truly is a business, then
it should stand or fall on its own."
Enterprise funds such as the golf


worked in the church office and
served on the Altar Society.
"The parishioners all knew each
other it was a much smaller con-
gregation then and we held a lot
of parties and simple get-togeth-
ers," Love recalls. "We were just
one big family.
"One of the favorite things to do
was to go crabbing together. There
was always some kind of music
whenever we would get together,
even for this. Father Kelly would
join in by turning over a metal tub
and using it for a drum. He was fun-
loving, and was part of everything
we did," Love recalls.
"Midnight Mass was a firm tra-
dition, and afterwards we would get
together at someone's home. A
friend of Greek origin used to bring


course, airport and marina as sep-
arate entitities from regular city gov-
ernment. The general fund is used
to pay for routine city expenses such
as police, fire, public works, etc.
In the case of enterprise funds,
particularly the golf course fund,
the city might be putting more
money into some funds than
they require, Mayor Greg Roland
said.
"What we're supposed to be
transferring is administrative fees or
costs" that city staff generate to sup-
port each enterprise fund, he said.
City staff need to "measure, quantify
and evaluate" their services related
to those funds. "Then we charge
off exactly what we're doing for
them and that difference we put
back into capital improvement for a
certain time period," Roland said.
"I' my humble opinion, the gen-
eral fund is over-funded anyhow,"
Commissioner Mike Lamb said.
"Surely a good, honest, thorough
look at exactly the efforts the city
* puts into each one of those (enter-
prise funds)" would be beneficial, he

Widowed for the second time in
1996, Love now lives with her niece
and niece's husband, Bonnie and
Tracy Tharp. "The oldest of my
three great-grandsons here gradu-
ated from FBHS last year, and the
other two are still in school," Love
explains.
Great-grandson Ronnie Davis, a
ninth-grader who aims to be on the
varsity football team next year at
FBHS, gives her a hug. "My great-
grandmother has seen everything
- five wars and so much else. She's
really special."

December when their home caught

"I think we need to sit down and
think about... how we're going to
pay for this," Mearns said. "Because
I don't think taxpayers want us to go
to them saying, 'We want to raise
your taxes for this or that."'
There are people out there who
know how to deal with these
issues," he said. "I am not an expert

"Trash Me"
Hi! I'm your Nassau County Landfill
don't be afraid, come on down,
I will guide you around, said Shirley,
Pat and Pam.
Pam, I'll turn on the radio and we'll
listen to some jam.
It's never to far away, why do we let
trash hang around the door each day.
I have big tall mountains that stands
so far away, the shadows seem like
the glacier that carries your trash
without delay.
Drive west, it's not far.
I'll say just roll on the seal, it will
remind you of Willie the whale and
Pat will motion you on, so that you
may leave all your by-gones.
Shirley will be waiting to greet you
again, because she believes litter
will never win.

Public participation leads


to responsible government


to ask: What ever happened
to openness and public disclo-
sure?
A hastily called meeting of the
Fernandina Beach City Commis-
sion last Wednesday dealt with an
important, controversial and polit-
ically charged topic. At hand was
the selling/developing of city-
owned land along the Fernandina
Beach Municipal Golf Course to
raise capital to buy a new sprin-
kler system and possibly the
Royal Amelia Golf Links.
This is more than a golf-related
issue, however. Anytime you want
to sell an asset owned by the city,
residents should be notified. In
most instances, residents must
approve a sale of land through a
referendum, or vote, according to
law. So someone, somewhere, in
our past must have determined
this is a pretty serious matter.
You never would have known
by the timing of the impromptu
meeting, or so-called workshop.
According to procedure, city offi-
cials published on their website
and distributed notices about the
meeting in appropriate time.
The notices went out a few
days or so before the meeting.
This would leave you to believe
that the matter at hand was an
emergency and urgent to some
degree. Otherwise, presumably
city officials would give the public
more notice about such a weighty
decision. Or wouldn't they?
There was discussion during
the meeting that the coveted
Royal Amelia tract, currently
mired in bankruptcy, was being
eyeballed for acquisition by some
major players, including Amelia
Island Plantation. There is also
talk that the Hawthorne Suites
company may re-enter the pic-
ture, after being spurned in its ini-
tial attempt to take over.
Maybe these competitive pres-
sures provided the impetus for
pushing through a meeting in

MAB T In a relat-
PLACE ed and per-
plexing move,
city officials have talked about dis-
banding several if not all citizen
advisory panels. These non-paid
volunteers provide the legwork
and vital recommendations to city
commissioners on critical issues
such as zoning, planning and
other government functions.
They are integral to a system
in which they do preliminary
work while taking the pulse of the
citizenry about issues. This, how-
ever, does not seem to be of inter-
est to some commissioners.
Especially when you consider..
the commission's antics in regard
to the Community Redevelopment
Area (CRA) fiasco, the marina and
now the golf course with ques-
tionable actions to apparently
keep the public from giving its
input.

The public showell up in force
at the meeting last Wednesday,
however. Obviously teed off, they
spoke with passion about the off-
beat proposal of selling or devel-
oping part of the existing city
course in return for buying yet
another golf course.
Derisive comments hit the
heart of the matter like a pointed
arrow, including (yes, these are
actual quotes):
"The last act of desperation
is selling off valuable assets."
"This is like selling the rec
center to pay the light bill."
It is totally contradictory to
sell what is green" (in light of the
city borrowing $6 million to buy
Egans Creek Greenway property
a few years ago).
The comments were taken to
heart. City officials decided to
back away from proceeding on
the financially repercussive mat-
ter. For now at least. This is an
example of residents having input
- and their input mattered.
Now that is an example of fis-
cally responsible government at
its best.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Fiscal responsibility?
First our West Side sheriff
retires and he is replaced by one
from Fernandina. Next our prop-
erty appraiser from the West Side
retires and he is replaced by a
property appraiser from
Fernandina. Then we lose our
West Side clerk of court and he is
replaced by a clerk of court from
Fernandina.
Now, to make matters worse,
our new clerk of court from
Fernandina, John Crawford, hires
our old clerk of court from
Fernandina, Jerry Greeson, to
serve as his top assistant, drawing
a salary of $77,000 a year. This is
more then Greeson made back
when he was clerk.
So now we have two clerks of
court making a combined salary of
over $170,000. This from a man
who ran on a platform of bringing
fiscal responsibility to the clerk of
court's office.
Meanwhile, West Nassau
citizens continue to lose their voice
in government and the fiscal
problems of our county continue


to grow. Just lovely.
Jeannie Kirkland
Bryceville

Stuck with the bill
In the current political and reli-
gious climate, no one is likely to
step up to the microphone at any
public hearing to defend the open-
ing of Adam & Eve (except their
corporate counsel). And I'm hard-
ly an exception. But when it comes
to the very real likelihood that we
taxpayers will get stuck with the
bill if Nassau County is sued for
damages because of violating one's
constitutional rights, I agree that
the line in the sand must be drawn,
and intend to be very deliberate
and thoughtful about which side
to stand on ("Line in the sand on
sex shop," Jan. 5).
It's one thing for a local attorney
to donate the services of his firm to
defend the county against an
almost certain lawsuit if this busi-
ness is somehow denied an oppor-
tunity to do business. Is he also
willing to donate the amount of
money that taxpayers will owe to


opposing counsel in case his firm
loses?
If there had already been a law
on the books that clearly let the
developer know that such a busi-
ness was neither welcome nor
desired, there would be no issue.
But to draft a law after the fact -
after a business owner has signed
a lease and invested in the busi-
ness smacks of discrimination.
In any number of places I've lived
around the country, there has
always been some form of adult-ori-
ented business, none of which I've
ever patronized. In my opinion, the
very best way to put an end to any
business is simply not shop there
instead of trying to legislate it out
of existence.
After all, the owners of Adam &
Eve have claimed that they're only
"following the money," opening in
Nassau County as a convenience to
people who already shop at one of
their other locations. If that proves
to be a false claim, and no one
shows up to patronize their new
store, it won't be long before the
business will disappear. It's cer-
tainly an alternative to a costly law-
suit that the county can ill afford.
Apparently, opponents of this
business believe that "separation of
church and state" is an antiquated
notion. It well might be, but until
the U.S. Constitution is amended
accordingly, our elected officials

and public servants especially
county counsel should honor
the law of the land over their per-
sonal convictions. If not, perhaps
they'll allow some of us taxpayers
to withhold our taxes because we
don't believe in how those tax dol-
lars are being spent.
Mark Kaufman
Fernandina Beach

Its only money
A Callahan attorney pledges
"the services of my law firm, free
of charge" ("line in the sand on
sex shop," Jan. 5) to help Nassau
County create an ordinance
designed to prevent a sex shop
from opening in a new mall in
O'Neil because "I'm a Christian
and I'm proud of that fact."
"It's not a freedom of speech
issue. It's a quality of life issue. It's
a morality issue."
I submit that the quality of life
and civic morality anticipated in
the First Amendment's recogni-
tion of the natural right of free
speech and all that implies is
what the Christian lawyer seeks
to prevent
Anyone who thinks such a store
is an affront to their dignity is free
to never shop there. Anyone who
thinks they would like to shop
there should be free to (in a free
country, anyway).
The store's attorney says that
communities that pass ordinances
restricting adult-based businesses
wind up paying attorneys' costs to
his firm. Nassau County really can't
afford to waste any more tax
money, but if we really want to dis-
tract the county commissioners by
foolishly trying to interfere with
the rights and freedom the real
God gave us, I hope we do exactly
that
James Hunter
Hilliard

Let consumers decide
I would like to make my views
known about the controversy sur-
rounding the impending opening
of Adam & Eve.
1. Prohibiting this store from
opening would be censorship of
the worst kind. This violates the


very freedoms we love so much.
There are Americans dying over-
seas to provide other peoples these
very same freedoms.
2. There is no such thing as
"community standards." A com-
munity is too diverse for there to be
such a thing. There can be stan-
dards that some people want that
are forced down the throat of oth-
ers. But that still doesn't create a
"community standard."
3. There is talk of creating new
regulations that would prohibit the
store from opening. This is like
changing the rules in the middle of
a game. This would be grossly
unfair to the owners of the store
who have obviously spent time and
money on planning their business
enterprise.
4. The vocal group who want
to stop the store are not represen-
tative of the whole community.
They belong to an association that
lets them marshal forces to object
to things that don't suit their
beliefs. Even if they are in the
majority, this does not give them
the right to impose their beliefs
on the rest of us.
5. Our country is a secular one,
guaranteed by the First
Amendment to the constitution.
This means all decisions of gov-
ernment bodies must be made
without reference to religion. If
they have filed all the necessary
paperwork for such a store then
there is no reason not to grant
them the necessary permits.
6. Does objecting to lingerie in
windows mean that Wal-Mart, K-
mart, Beall's and all the malls have
to put screens around their lin-
gerie sections? What about
Victoria's Secret and Fredericks?
They put sexy lingerie in their win-
dows all the time. Why not Adam
& Eve?
7. The divorce rate in America
is huge, creating lots of single fam-
ily homes. This is a burden on the
community. I would think that you
should welcome a store that
enhances a couple's relationship.
Sex, regardless of puritanical think-
ing, can often cement an otherwise
rocky marriage.
8. Lastly, this store should be
given the chance to succeed or fail
based on its own performance. If it

Yesterdays news
I want to thank the good people
of Nassau County for providing the
proposed "sex shop" with enough
free publicity to choke a goat. If
there were citizens of this good
county who were blissfully
unaware that this business was
planning to open on A1A, they are
certainly aware of it now, and
Adam & Eve has not had to pay
one cent for all the free press.
This is a country of free enter-
prise, and this business is free to
open its doors and do business,
even here in Nassau County. We,
as adults, have a choice. We can
frequent the new business, or we
can choose not to frequent it. It's a
choice we all can make. If enough
people choose not to frequent this
establishment, it will go out of busi-
ness. Simple.
I moved here from a small town
in New Jersey. I lived there many
years and never knew there was a
similar store a half mile from my
home, until someone in passing
mentioned it to me. This store had
no blaring signs, no advertising
that I was aware of and nobody
seemed offended by its presence.
The crime rates did not rise, there
were no protests.
Right now Adam & Eve is
today's news. Let's make it yester-
day's news and get on with our
lives.

Log truck roulette
I concur with other opinions
about the log truck's "I blew my
horn so this means I may proceed
through the red light rule." Log
Truck Roulette.
I've looked into Florida law, and
nowhere in writing does it state: If
you blow your horn it's legal to
proceed through an intersection
while your traffic indicator is red.
I've also complained about the
after-midnight runners from 2:30
a.m. to 4:45 a.m. Yes, to the law
enforcement concerning the inter-
section of CR 107 and A1A. Three
years later same problem. No
action taken.

big trucks on A1A, 45 mph, right
lane only until crossing bridge into
Fernandina. Increase fines for vio-

Increase DOT presence/ in-
spections on trucks day and night
This will make the illegal runners
think twice before driving. I have
great respect for big rig drivers
doing it the right way, but it's the
few who ruin it for the rest.
Quality drivers get on your

County takes


first steps


on right path

Nassau County has taken the first steps down
what promises to be a long path back to fiscal
respectability.
The county has admitted it has a financial
problem. And county commissioners last week
unanimously approved a list of goals and objec-
tives proposed by County Administrator Mike
Mahaney to solve that problem.
Now begins the tough part.
Commissioners must make hard choices,
probably offending nearly every constituency by
curbing expenses and raising revenues. Costs will
rise, services will decline and county residents
will be disappointed.
There is no other way.
The first objective must be to get off negative
credit watch as-establishedibyFitch Ratings Ltda., r,
of W idlh ag dow, 6.3 aB4. lio4 line 80J_1
credit is urgent.
The county also must provide essential servic-
es while building up its reserve funds. New taxes
or fees will be necessary to do so.
Higher impact and other fees on new home-
owners to pay the costs of growth are inevitable.'
Commissioners will also consider the sale of
county property, including the 14th Street annex,
even though that defers plans for a new library. A
bankrupt county cannot build a new library, no
matter how much we believe one is needed.
Imposition of an additional gas tax is an even
harder choice, particularly given how the county
may have squandered gas tax revenues in the
past But we must find a way to pay for new roads
and paving old ones.
Finally, we must have new efficiencies in coun-
ty government the old ways of doing business
just won't do and we must establish sound
financial management procedures.
That is, we must pay for the tools to dig us out
of this hole, and we must provide the implements
to keep us on solid ground in the future.
We laud Mahaney for laying out the tough
choices, and commissioners for taking them seri-
ously. If the political will is there, there is a way to
get out of this mess.


COMMUNITY THANKS

Help and kindness
Euthanasia for my beloved best friend Maggy
dog was the toughest decision I ever had to make.
Early Sunday, Dec. 19, I decided that I could no
longer bear her pain (or mine) and I made that
decision. My first call was to the Amelia Island
Animal Hospital on Eighth Street After listening to
the recorded message which included an emer-
gency phone number, I called and was pleasantly sur-
prised and relieved to hear Dr. Jennifer L. Towles.
I probably got her out of bed, and I apologize for that,
but she was very kind and compassionate.
I was not able to lift my 110-pound yellow
lab/shepherd to get her to the clinic and Dr. Towles
kindly told me that she could get to my house with-
in a half hour. I want to publicly thank Dr. Towles and
the staff for coming to our rescue. They are the
best' I cannot say the whole ordeal was not painless,
but Dr. Towles sure made it easier for us.
Maggy was 14 and very special. We (Mom, Dad
and husband Barry) rescued her when she was
nine weeks old from the Lehigh County (Pa.)
Humane Society in 1990. She gave all of us love, and
then Dad died in 1991, Barry died in 1996 and Mom
died in 2000.1 I feel my three loved humans lived on
in Maggy and she became my constant companion.
Thanks again to Dr. Towles, Dr. Hicks and the
Amelia Island Animal Hospital.

good, but ended up doing well by

I think the United States should
make sure that the world and especial-
ly the people in Asia know what we
are doing to help.
This is not to say we expect them
to love us because of our actions; how-
ever, they should know who is helping
them and then it is up to them to
decide if we are owed any thanks in
the short or long term.

VIEWPOINT/Iou FREY JR/FORMER MEMBER OF CONGRESS


Giving is the appropriate thing to do


T he death toll from the tsuna-
mi continues to rise. The
impact of it from the human
standpoint will continue to be
felt for months. The economic impact
has not yet been determined, but the
cost will be staggering. What is
unknown is the political impact, both
from the standpoint of the countries
involved and major players like the
United States.
The United States got off to a slow
start in terms of world opinion by say-
ing it would send only $30 million in
aid. This was before the extent of the
losses was known. As soon as it
became apparent that this was truly
an incredible human disaster,
President Bush moved skillfully to put
the United States in a position to do
what was right from the personal and
political standpoint. The first thing the
A president 4dd dwas to bave Colin
that many more resources were going
to be sent The Navy and Marines
quickly flew in relief supplies. The
president asked President Clinton and
President Bush to head up the relief
effort and to help focus private contri-
butions from the United States to
those most in need. Both President
Bush and President Clinton were gra-
cious towards each other and made it
clear that this was a bipartisan effort
and that all in our country should be
involved.
The president also moved quickly
in sending an inspection team to the
area, including his brother, Jeb Bush,
governor of Florida. This is Jeb's first
real time in the international spotlight
since the 2000 election and on a much
more positive basis. He brings knowl-
edge about natural disasters, although
on a much smaller scale, to Asia. He
understands the frustrations of people
who can't get help and of dealing with
bureaucracy at the government level.
It also adds to his resume in case in
the future he has any thoughts about
higher office.
The U.S. Congress is ready to
jump in with more aid. In summary,
Bush has skillfully made this a biparti-
san effort, put the United States out
front in giving and delivering aid, and
has raised the issue to an extremely
high level through the appointment of
President Bush and President Clinton.
Some people have argued that the

United States is doing too much and
that we are helping people in areas
where the United States is intensely
disliked. There is no question that this
is true in some cases. The question of
foreign aid is always a tough one for
most members of Congress. There
are always needs in the United States
such as education, health care, med-
ical research that are not being met
and every dollar that goes for foreign
aid could be well used at home. There
is also money that goes to the U.N.
which has not covered itself with
glory in recent days.
I personally have struggled with
the issue and have looked at it in sev-
eral ways. The first, what is right
under the circumstances? What is the
United States about? Are the words in


our Declaration of Independence and
Constitution real, or are they just
words on paper? I believe that they
are what distinguishes our country
from every other place in the world.
These beliefs have been our guiding
star for over 200 years.
We have the ability to help people
in Asia and we should do it It is the
right thing to do.
The second way I approached for-
eign aid was not on a philosophical,
but on a practical basis. Was this for-
eign aid or was this U.S. aid? In other
words, assuming we are doing the
right thing, does it help further the
United States' interests around the
world. As I learned years ago when I
was first stationed in Hawaii, the mis-
sionary families went to Hawaii to do

HOME Continued from 1A
the first opportunity in their lives
to have a single bedroom
arrangement," said Marc Beaven,
chief operating officer of the care
center. Currently they live in an
institutional setting on Atlantic
Avenue in Fernandina Beach.
There will be a 50-foot natural
buffer between the eastern side
of the Hendricks Road property
and its nearest residential neigh-
bor, he said. There will be no sig-
nage, and lighting will be the
same as elsewhere in the neigh-
borhood, said Beaven.
Clyde Davis, attorney for the
homeowners, presented a prop-
erty appraiser's assessment that
the compound will "substantially
diminish" area property values.
He also argued that the adminis-
trative building violates county
ordinances because it will sup-
port more than the Hendricks
Road site, essentially turning it
into a commercial venture.
Davis also charged that one
of the Conditional Use and
Variance Board members had a
'ountlct of interest, because her
parents owned one of the Miner
Road properties sold to the care
center to establish a residence.
However, county attorney
Susan Jarzyna said Teresa Brown
declared her conflict, filed the
necessary paperwork and did not
vote on the Miner Road case.
Jarzyna said approval of the
single administrative building for


all three sites follows the intent of
the law, which is to prevent a
stand-alone office space, not one
that supports a conditional use.
'This is another example where
land development regulations
need to be rewritten to reflect
practice," she said.
"And parenthetically, it is a
very small office space," she said.
"So basically what we have
here is a house with eight bed-
rooms," said Commissioner
Marianne Marshall. "I guess com-
ing from a family of eight chil-
dren, I wish we each had a bed-
room. And when you look at what
this truly is how do you step
back and not approve? This is a
community."
"We make good neighbors.
They will find that out once we're
out there," said Sharon Brown-
Jamison, executive director of the
Amelia Island Care Center.
Lanny Rauer, attorney for the
care center, said 67 of the 68 res-
idents are in wheelchairs and
have lived in an institutional set-
ting for 16 years.
The common denominator is
that they have an IQ of 75 or
lower and need help with day to
day tasks, said Beaven. He
assured commission Chair
Ansley Acree that none of them
has substance abuse or violence
problems:
All they're asking for is a
home, said Rauer. "Everyone
deserves that."

He added, "We just want to make
sure we are all on the same page."
The builders' analysis was pre-
pared by Fowler White Bogs
Banker PA of Tallahassee.
It argues that in other Florida
counties, impact fees must be used
for their intended purpose within
six years of their collection, and
that the school board will have a
surplus of funds until at least 2013,
negating the need for a school
impact fee on new development,
at least for now.
It also charges that new home-
owners could end up paying twice
for new schools once with their
ad valorem tax dollars and again
through an impact fee.
The builders' association also
questions the study's comparisons
to some counties in Florida but not
others.
"Fishkind calculates the total
cost per student station by dwelling
type using data from Lake County.
... The demographics and growth
rate of the two counties are not
comparable, and the data needed to
make valid conclusions about
Nassau County are not difficult to
assemble," the builders' analysis
reads.
It concludes, "No attempt has
been made to determine the true
extent to which new residential
development will create a need for
new school facilities and to devel-
op a formula that will assess that
new development no more than its
pro rata share for those facilities."
Schools Superintendent John
Ruis said the criticism wasn't unex-
pected.
"We knew they were going to
look at it with a critical eye," he
said. "We anticipated that. That's
OK."
The school board will hold a
workshop on the issue at 4 p.m.
Thursday at the district office, 1201
Atlantic Ave. A joint meeting


Miami-Dade $612
Orange $2.828
Osceola $9,850

Fishkind recommends
In December 2003 the
Nassau County School Board
commissioned a study on
growth and school impact fees
by Fishkind and Associates of
Orlando at a cost of 335.000.
The consultant's resulting
report includes a student
enrollment forecast, a fiscal
impact model and proposed
school impact fees.
Fishkind has predicted the
school board will face at least a
S25 million shortfall over its 27-
year forecast if it continues to
rely solely on ad valorem taxes
to fund new schools and has
recommended a range of
impact fees on new construc-
tion to help cover the cost.
A flat impact fee of 83,726,
levied on all new construction
regardless of dwelling type,
would generate $94.7 million
over the next 30 years, Stanley
Geberer, the study's author,
reports.
The other option is to levy
impact fees based on dwelling
type, charging $4,212 for a sin-
gle family home, S3.834 for a
multi-family unit and S2.591 for
a mobile home.
That would generate more
money S96.9 million over the
next 30 years, according to
Geberer's estimates.

between the school board and
county commission is planned for
4 p.m. Jan. 27, also at the district
office.
Following that meeting, school
board officials had planned to draft
a resolution for a school impact
fee ordinance.
County commissioners would
have to approve that ordinance fol-
lowing more public hearings.

GOALS Continued from 1A
Gail Cook, recommending that
other schools duplicate the
"Mainsail" guide.
"If we provide that, we have
provided them with every piece
of information that is necessary,"
Burns said.
One change, for example, is
that all of the district's high
schools will have six class periods
next year, standardizing class and
day lengths, board members
noted.
"A lot of students are picking
classes before parents even know
about it," board Chair Muriel
Creamer said.
Board members also want to
be in better touch with county
growth as they continue work
toward creating an ordinance for
an impact fee that will help pay
the way for schools and educa-
tional services to meet explod-
ing growth.
Creamer recommended a.
report twice a year on county-
wide growth. Board members
also noted that they need to mon-
itor issues impacting land and
land values, as future schools
may need to be built.
Superintendent of Schools
John Ruis noted that area growth
is "something we're going to have
to incorporate more into our five-
year work program."
'They have not regularly
reviewed their impact fee sched-
ule," school board member Janet
Adkins said of Nassau County.
"When you don't, you have a
funding problem."
Ruis explained that the ordi-
nance for the school impact fee
would contain a mechanism for
regular review.
"The resolution for the Board
of County Commissioners to
establish school impact fees will
have the amount of money the
board recommends to them to
levy and a stipulation for period-
ic adjustments," Ruis said.
Board members also agreed
on the need for a school adviso-
ry council to plan the 2006 tran-
sition to the new Yulee high
school for students, teachers and
support staff.
High on the list of legislative
priorities was aligning Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCA'I) standards with the state's
"No Child Left Behind" standards
and repeal of the class size reduc-
tion amendment.
Cook recommended that if
the class size amendment were to
be repealed that it not be thrown
away entirely.
"I would support anything that
would keep ifin '(Kindeigarten
through third grade)," said Cook.
'To me, when you get into middle
school and high school, it limits
the standards of small groups."
Regarding an adult shop set to
open in the O'Neil area, school
board members opted to ask
their attorney whether a resolu-

Garbage collector hurt


while just doing his job'


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
In the seconds before a trac-
tor-trailer slammed into the back
of a garbage truck on US 301 near
Callahan Dec. 30, Audwin
Alphonso Thompson and Justice
Johnson had a dangerous front
row view.
Both were riding on the rear of
the garbage truck, standing on
platforms and gripping handles
installed on the truck for that pur-
pose.
"The truck was suddenly
there," said Johnson, 45, of
Fernandina Beach. "In a matter of
not even a second. We were at a
stop."
The men jumped. Johnson
landed on the shoulder of the road
but Thompson, who was on the


garbage truck's left side, was hit
by an oncoming vehicle traveling
south on US 301, said Lt. Bill
Leeper of the Florida Highway
Patrol.
The 33-year-old Hilliard man
was rushed to Shands Jacksonville
in critical condition. He was listed
in good condition there Monday
after numerous operations.
Johnson said he is worried
about Thompson's condition.
"I have not been asleep,"
Johnson said Thursday. "I just
started eating yesterday."
The garbage truck driver,
Rachel D. Williams, 34, of Yulee
was waiting to turn left from north-
bound US 301 onto Sandy Ford
Road when the accident occurred,
said Leeper.
Williams was traumatized by
the accident, said her sister Kim


Thomas, because the Waste
Management employees were not
just co-workers, but friends.
Williams attended to Thompson
at the scene while awaiting an
ambulance.
"He was a good man doing his
job," Thomas said of the injured
worker. "His life is changed for-
ever. He was just doing his job."
Leeper said after hitting the
garbage truck the tractor-trailer
reportedly veered left and hit a
southbound 2004 Buick driven by
Richard Smith, 64, of Argyle, N.Y.
The tractor-trailer driver,
William T. Rice, 64, of
Summerfield is charged with
excessive speed and failure to use
due care, Leeper said.
No other injuries were report-

Fowl play suspected


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
There's a costumed cement
duck on the run somewhere on
Amelia Island.
Last seen dressed as Santa Claus
and standing in a roundabout, the
duck is about a foot high, gray,
weighs 30 pounds and is unable to
waddle, quack or eat bread crumbs.
He can't return to his home without
someone to physically pick him up
and take him there.
Jean Wiedman, who lives on
Regatta Drive near the Golf Club
of Amelia Island, is in a neighbor-
hood without curbs and bought the
duck some years back to deter peo-
ple from inadvertently driving and
parking on her lawn.
"We had it sitting down next to
the street," Wiedman said.
"Originally, we put it there because
people kept running over our sprin-
kler head and my husband just got
tired of replacing it. People would
just pull over and park and our
sprinkler head was very easily hit."
He's a duck with a mission. But
recently, as he stood guard at the
Wiedman house clad in a home-
made Santa outfit, he disappeared
without a trace. Abduckted.
'"This was probably a couple of
weeks before Christmas," Wiedman
said. "We had left on Dec. 19th to go
north, and it had been over a week
since he had been gone."
Now, he is unable to fulfill his
sworn responsibility to sprinkler
head protection if he is sitting in
someone else's yard, or, heaven for-

* Missing Last seen dressed
as Santa Claus and standing in
a roundabout on Amelia
Island

bid, trying to swim an activity for
which he is least qualified.
The Wiedmans now have their
home for sale, and their real estate
agent mentioned to them since the
duck's disappearance that he had.
seen it in the Sadler Road and
Fletcher Avenue roundabout.
Wiedman contacted people in the
area but turned up no clues.
"We checked with Sliders
(Seaside Grill), thinking they may
have seen something, but they had-
n't seen it," she said. "It was notice-
able, because it had a Santa outfit."
Over the course of a year the
duck dons seasonal clothing.
"I have other costumes for it,"
Weidman said.
He is a witch for Halloween, a pil-
grim at Thanksgiving and Santa
Claus for Christmas. He wears red,
white and blue for the Fourth of
July, green for St. Patrick's Day and
red for Valentine's Day. He has even
been seen as a Nebraska
Cornhuskers cheerleader, a tribute
to Wiedman's home state.
"A friend of mine made the out-


fits," Wiedman said, noting that the
friend has since died.
Wiedman said another disap-
pointing fact about the disappear-
ance is that she is not the only one
in her neighborhood who liked see-
ing the duck as he stood guard.
"We have some children here
who have always had fun seeing
the duck," Wiedman said.
"Someone once hit it and broke it,
and then one of my neighbors
replaced it and didn't take credit
for the gift," Wiedman said. "When
people tried to find our house, we
could tell them, 'it's the one with
the duck.'"
Wiedman said she doesn't know
how much the duck will cost to
replace.
"You know, I have no idea," she
said. "The next time we go to
Jacksonville, we'll just buy another
duck. If it had happened when that
cement place was still open over on
Eighth Street, they might have had
one. I've been told they have them
in Jacksonville."
Although Wiedman said she did
not report the ducknapping to
police, but she did tell security at
Golfside.
"I think someone took it to be
funny, but it's not a nice thing to
do," she said.

POLICE REPORT


KEVIN TURNER/NEWS-LEADER
A Fernandina Beach firefighter heads into a smoldering home on South 10th Street last
week. Firefighters quickly put out the blaze, which was confined to a mattress in a bedroom.



2 boys arrested for arson


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader

Two Fernandina Beach 12-
year-olds were arrested Friday
and charged with burglary and
arson in connection with a Jan. 4
fire at an unoccupied house on
South 10th Street.
The boys were arrested and
booked at the Fernandina Beach
Police Department after they
allegedly broke into a house at
501 South 10th St. and set fire to
a mattress.
Fernandina Beach Fire Chief
Danny Leeper said the house had


been vacant for more than a year,
but the homeowner had stored
some belongings in it. Damage
was limited to the bedroom where
the mattress was located, Leeper
said. The Fernandina Beach
Police Department noted in their
report that someone appears to
have been living in the house.
"The owners of the surround-
ing homes stated they had not
seen anyone coming or going
from the house," the police report
stated.

Felonious 'shopping'
A Jacksonville pair attempted

Robert Timothy Thorton, 39,
and Loretta Cannady Phillips, 34,
both of Jacksonville, walked into
the store and presented the store's
"greeter" with Phillips' personal
watch as an item to be returned.
They then reportedly placed

desk in an alleged attempt to get its
cash value.
Deputies reported their car had
a license plate reported stolen from
Duval County.
Nude appearance
Anthony Adam Kegley, 41,

arrested after he reportedly
appeared nude in his front yard
Thursday.
His neighbors contacted the
Nassau County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, saying Kegley was naked in
full view of neighborhood children.
Witnesses said he appeared drunk
and was unable to keep his balance.
When deputies arrived, Kegley
reportedly retreated into his house,
then threatened them and ordered
his dog to attack. Deputies attempt-
ed to use a stun gun against the
charging dog but it retreated.
They reportedly used the stun
gun twice against Kegley. After he
was handcuffed, Kegley reported-
ly continued to resist officers, lost
his balance and struck his nose on
the open rear door of a patrol car
as deputies tried to place him
inside.
Kegley's dog then jumped into
the front seat of the patrol car and
had to be removed by animal con-
trol. Paramedics reported that
Kegley had a nosebleed but no
other injuries.
Kegley is charged with lewd
and lascivious behavior, resisting

V LETTER FROM IRAQ


Helping Iraq win its freedom


JAMES BRANNING
For the News-Leader
The 10 months I have been in Iraq has really
changed me. I think of how fortunate we really are
in the United States to be free. I have been to the
Baghdad International Airport many times since
being over here and have checked out through the
terminals and even flown on Iraqi Airlines. What a feel-
ing of doing something no one else back home has
done.
The times I have been through there though, I
have had weird thoughts. Why aren't there people
using it? It looks old but it appears unused. The
inside terminals appear new and unused yet styled
from the early '80s. The huge three-story parking
garage is dusty and consumed by litter, but appears
structurally new. I was shocked to even see over-
head water sprinklers in case of a fire.
While there today, I had the opportunity to speak
with Mr. Qassim. He works for a personal protection
service escorting people in and around Baghdad.
He was there on business. He and I spoke for a good
length of time about the things going on in Iraq, as
he is an Iraqi-born citizen who speaks good English.
He is a young to middle aged man, clean-cut and
excited about his job, yet he said he worries about
going home to his family at night. He spoke of the dan-
gers and spies lurking in Baghdad, watching and
waiting. He says it is dangerous but he has a family
to support and loves the idea of helping get his coun-
try on its feet.
He spoke of the Baghdad International Airport and
how it was built only for Saddam and his military
regime. He stated that no Iraqi citizen could use the
airport unless Saddam himself approved of it. He


went on to state that Iraqi citizens were not allowed
out of Iraq. It was extremely expensive to acquire
permission to leave, so no one left. If caught trying
to leave without permission the penalty was prison or
death.
He did not tell me when the airport was con-
structed, only that it was in the early to mid-80s. We
continued speaking about Saddam's power and
money.
He spoke of the many grand palaces in Iraq -
many of them in Baghdad alone. Huge breathtaking
palaces that were used only by Saddam and his
regime. Just like the Baghdad International Airport.
A few other interesting facts Mr. Qassim related
to me were: All palaces in Iraq had to have breakfast,
lunch and dinner prepared for Saddam every day of
the year, just in case he were to stop by.
The unused food was thrown away never to be
eaten. The Iraqi people were not allowed to use cell
phones or satellite dishes. This was forbidden by
Saddam. He spoke of Iraqi men and-their duty to
serve in the Iraqi army. If a man did not fulfill his duty
in the army by a certain age he was imprisoned or
executed.
I have heard these same stories from other Iraqi
nationals. They all speak of the horror of living in fear
- in fear of being imprisoned or executed. We truly
have the best of everything in our country these
days. Men and women fought for our freedom in the
U.S. a long time ago and I am proud to be doing my
part, serving my country, helping Iraq win its free-
dom.
God bless America.
James Branning, a Fernandina Beach police offi-
cer, is training officers for the Iraqi Police
Administration.

nated are:

nant during flu season

the age of 6 months

Books sought for children


As part of Gov. Jeb Bush's ini-
tiatives to promote reading, the
Florida Department of Children
and Families is currently collecting
new and used books for children
as part of its "Reading In The New
Year" campaign.
DCF will distribute the books
among foster children in the five-
county Jacksonville area, includ-
ing Nassau County.
Books will be collected through
Friday at the DCF office, 1303
Jasmine St., Fernandina Beach.
"I encourage all Floridians to
open their hearts and give the
most precious gift we can give our
children the gift of reading,"
said Bush in a press release.

-AAOWAASA&AR


"When children read, they
learn important life lessons," said
Nancy Dreicer, district adminis-,
trator for the Department of
Children and Families on the
First Coast. "Reading can open
many doors for them, both now
and in the future. We want our
foster children to have the tools
they need to be successful. We
hope that business and individuals
will donate books to help make
our campaign a success," said
Dreicer.
The book drive is a partnership
between Just Read! Florida and
the Governor's Family Literacy
and Mentoring Initiatives, under
the Volunteer Florida Foundation.

Hairy


weekend


ofNFL


playoffs

Reporters took specu-
lation to the nth
degree last week
after University of
Florida TE Tate Casey
emerged from the team's first
official meeting with new
head coach Urban Meyer
bearing a scowl on his face.
Some automatically assumed
that Casey didn't like what he
heard from his new boss.
News flash: People frown
for various reasons. Maybe
Casey's girlfriend just broke
up with him. Or maybe he
had a bad case of the piles
that flared up during the
meeting. Will there be play-
ers who won't adapt to
Meyer's way of doing things?
Sure. But let's give Casey and
the rest of them at least one
practice with their new coach
before we decide who the
non-conformers are...
Did you see the head of
hair on Minnesota wide
receiver Randy Moss during
the Vikings first-round play-
offs win over Green Bay
Sunday? Man, you could lose
a small child in that mop...
Speaking of hair, is it just
me or is Denver's scraggly-
bearded QB Jake Plummer
the spitting image of Forrest
Gump after Gump ran from
coast to coast? Early
Christmas gift idea for
Plummer: A Norelco
Personal Groomer G250
Beard Trimmer, complete
with styling comb and a
cleaning brush...
Man, I would hate to be
the first college football com-
mentator to call a game
between Stanford and
Louisville. "First and 10
Cardinals on the Cardinal
20-yard line, with the
Cardinal ahead of the
Cardinals 20-17."...
Word has it that
Indianapolis QB Peyton
Manning has broken so
many records this year that
hell have to move up to CDs
next season. Bahdabing!...
One Fox announcer had a
cow Sunday when Randy
Moss pretended to drop his
britches and "moon" the
Green Bay fans after catching
what would prove to be the
game-winning touchdown,
calling the act disgusting.
Puhleeease. Moss' antics
aren't even in the same ball-
park with the throat-slashing
gesture utilized by college
and pro athletes alike. Now
what would have been dis-
gusting is if Moss had really
dropped his drawers to reveal
even more hair...
Those waiting for Florida
State head football coach
Bobby Bowden to admit that
his son and FSU offensive'
coordinator Jeff Bowden was
responsible for the
Seminoles' lack of fire power
the last few years can exhale,
because it's not gonna hap-
pen. Fact is, Bobby's wife
happens to be Jeffs mom and
the couch can be awfully
hard on the back of a 75-year-
old...
Offbeat story of the week:
Legendary stuntman Evel
Knievel filed a lawsuit against
a sports website for referring
to him as a pimp in a picture
caption. Knievel, most noted
for his motorcycle jump of
the quarter-mile-wide Snake
River Canyon in 1974, was
reportedly furious after a U.S.
Appeals Court turned him
away. Relax, Evel. Being con-
sidered a pimp at 66 might
not be such a bad thing...
About 600 rival fans rioted
in central Athens, Greece,
Sunday prior to a soccer
game and injured 10 police
officers in the process,
according to news sources.
What I want to know is how
in the world did 600 Oakland
Raiders fans come up with
the cash to fly to Greece?
John L. Crawford's column
appears Wednesdays.

Whittenburg added to roster


The Bolles School head coach Corky

Rogers originally named 20 scholar ath-

will be played on Feb. 2. A total of 24 differ-

2005 SCHEDULES









WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12,2005 SPORTS NEWS-LEADER


SUPER BOWL LINEUP


Football clinic

Whether it is on the playing field or in life, suc-
cess requires hard work, determination and self-dis-
cipline. To inspire these traits among young people,
more than 50 NFL superstars will share examples
from their own lives while teaching football funda-
mentals to 3,000 local Jacksonville boys and girls
on Jan. 29 at the NFL Super Bowl XXXIX Youth
Clinics.
The free clinics will be held at the University of
North Florida Stadium (4567 St. Johns Bluff Road
South). Saturday's clinic will be divided into two ses-
sions with approximately 1,500 youngsters, ages
11-18, at each. Sessions will be held from 7:45-
10:10 a.m. and 10 a.m. to 12:40 p.m
Local youths are given the opportunity to enter a
random drawing for 600 spots in the clinic by sub-
mitting entries before Sunday. The remaining 2,400
spots will be filled through invitations to
Jacksonville-area schools, youth agencies and
churches.
During each session, participants will split into
small groups and rotate between stations managed
by NFL superstars from teams throughout the
league. The NFL players will teach the fundamen-
tals of their positions, demonstrate and direct non-
contact football drills, deliver motivational speeches
and sign autographs.


Participants will receive gift bags filled with NFL
merchandise, a lasting reminder of the message
presented throughout the day. A roster of NFL play-
ers participating will be available in February.


Cheerleading clinic

The National Football League and American All-
Star will host more than 1,000 young women from
local Jacksonville schools at the ninth annual NFL
Super Bowl Cheerleading Spirit Clinic Jan. 30 from

Presents the NFL Experience. JEA Park is located
on the south bank of the St. Johns River.
The first 1,000 young women (grades 1-12) from
Jacksonville who register are eligible to participate
in the free clinic. Anyone interested in participating
must have a representative from her school contact
American All-Star at (985) 893-3009 to sign her up
for the clinic. Invitations to participate in the NFL
Super Bowl XXXIX Cheerleading Spirit Clinic were
sent to all public and private schools in the
Jacksonville area as well as area gyms and dance
studios. Founded nine years ago by American All-
Star president, Lesslee Fitzmorris, of Mandeville,
La., the NFL Super Bowl Cheerleading Spirit Clinic
has developed into one of the most exciting com-
munity outreach events held each year in conjunc-
tion with the Super Bowl. In addition to the Super


Bowl spirit clinic, Fitzmorris is conducting the Super
Bowl cheer and dance/drill team competition Jan.
29 from 1-3 p.m. at the NFL Experience on the clinic
field. It is designed to give local dance and cheer
teams an opportunity to showcase their talents in a
fun and exciting atmosphere.
In addition to practicing cheer and dance skills
with cheerleaders from American All-Star and the
Jacksonville Jaguars, participants will also learn
football fundamentals from NFL players, coaches
and referees. Participants will also meet several
"Cheerleaders of Life," who will speak about the
importance of getting a good education, living drug-
free and striving to achieve one's dreams.

Writers may be gone, but Algonquin still a star


What a wonderful old
hotel the famous
Algonquin. What
New York is to the
world, the Yankees to baseball,
Wall Street to finance, Carnegie
Hall to music, the Algonquin is to
New York City, or so the elegant
little Big City hotel states in its
brochure.
For old time New Yorkers it is
considered an institution. One
can almost hear Dorothy Parker,
one of the hotel's famous round
table members, chortle "An insti-
tution? Who wants to be in.an
institution?"
The hotel oozes wonderful
history. The dark oak in its cozy
but elegant lobby welcomes you,
as does the house cat Matilda. As
we stepped out of our cab, leav-
ing honking horns and tall build-
ings behind, we took a step back
in time when people valued con-
versation over hot tea or a cold


FROM THE
PORCH


drink.
How
many big
city hotels
have a resi-
dent cat?
The
Algonquin
does.
Matilda is
one of a
series of
Matildas
that have
been a sig-
nature of
the hotel.
She has her


own chaise complete with catnip
mouse, but usually chooses a
spot on the counter and twitches
her elegant silvery fluff of a tail to
let everyone know who is in
charge.
We were impressed from the
first moment we stepped through


the doors of the famed Algonquin
Hotel. Like many before us we
felt instantly welcome and
enjoyed the intimacy of the small
lobby area and the graciousness
of everyone we encountered.
After checking in, we walked
to the elevator (those wonderful
small hotel elevators that are only
slightly bigger then a telephone
booth) and noticed intimate little
sitting areas where people sipped
wine, tea or coffee reading their
newspapers and gossiping. We
looked forward to joining the oth-
ers in the famed lobby with its
cozy chairs and sofas in jewel
tones, writing desks and coffee
tables that all looked like they
had always been there.
Sinte 1902 the Algonquin has
been a meeting place for some of
New York's brightest, most outra-
geous talents. The hotel name
was the inspiration of Frank
Case, who joined the staff when


the hotel was under construction.
Initially to be named the Puritan,
Case felt the name off-putting and
suggested something more inter-
esting and clearly American. He
chose Algonquin, naming the
hotel for the largest of North
America's Native American
tribes.
Case is credited with cultivat-
ing both the literary and theatri-
cal greats of the day. After World
War I, a group of writers began to
meet regularly at the what was to
become the famous Algonqluin
Round Table in the hotel's dining
room. Legend has it that the
group actually called themselves
The Vicious Circle. The list of
those that traded gossip and scin-
tillating conversation is a long
one and includes Robert
Benchley, Heywood Broun,
George S. Kaufman, Edna Ferber,
Dorothy Parker, Robert E.
Sherwood and Alexander


Walcott. Harold Ross, legendary
editor, was so impressed by his
luncheon companions, he created
a magazine to display their talent
The magazine? The New Yorker.
The table remains, but sadly the
talent does not.
We found the hotel in an ideal
location on 44th Street
between Fifth and Sixth avenues.
We were able to walk to the
theater.
Central Park is not too far
away and Fifth Avenue, with its
world-famous stores, offers enter-
tainment of a different sort
In a day and age of technology
and impersonal hassled travel,
finding a hotel that is elegant,
welcoming and convenient is a
joy and, besides, it has the best
ghosts any writer could ever ask
for!

although it took my foster
mom a while to name me
that. In fact, the first week
she was using less endear-
ing terms to describe me.
See, I'm a feral kitten. I was
born out in the wild because
some thoughtless person put
my mom and dad out to fend
for themselves. They learned
not to trust humans and
became untouchables.
Lucky for us, some nice peo-
ple noticed us and put out
food and water every day.
They called in the Cats
Angels, who trapped us and
took us to the vet, where we
were tested, fixed and vacci-
nated. My sister and I got a
foster Angel. She put us in
separate cages and I hissed
a lot to let her know I didn't
like layobf thin business., ,
She justliept on with the
petting.

Fluffy just rolling and

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FLORIDA


Searchfor

theperfect

gibletgravy

have brought me
closer to my grand-
mother's cooking
than I ever thought possible.
I've taken pride in making
fried chicken just the way she
did and recreating her corn-
bread dressing for the holi-
days. In the South, much of
our culture is tied closely to
food, as it should be. In a per-
fect world, we would all make
an effort to not only pass down
family memories and photos,
but also family recipes.
I hear quite often from my
readers how they wish they
had learned to cook from the
women in their family. A child
in the kitchen may be incon-
venient but lessons can be
taught at the stove that will
last a lifetime. I'm afraid
Southern food is dying with an
older generation. I encourage
you to bring your children and
grandchildren with you down
a road of Southern memories,
recipes and stories.
Sadly, I failed to get a writ-
ten copy of my grandmother's
giblet gravy before she died.
After trying numerous gravies,
I am still missing something to
make it just right Before you
all put your holiday recipes
away for another 11 months, I -
beg of you to share your gravy
secrets with me. I will test the
recipes I receive and the
owner of the most delicious
gravy (even if it's not like my
grandmother's) will win a
signed copy of my cookbook
and $25. The recipe will also
be featured in a future column.
E-tmail recipes to
rdlang@charter.net or mail
them to me at P.O. Box 334,
McRae, GA 31055. Include
your name, phone number and
address. I would love to hear
the "story" of your gravy too.

instructor and food writer
