Schools ay




122 workers




$50,000 plus


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
There are 122 Nassau County
School District contract employ-
ees 57 of them teachers who
make more than $50,000 a year in
pay.
Superintendent John Ruis is the
highest paid district employee, at
$118,774 a year. His salary is set by
a formula in state law for elected
school superintendents.
Ruis recommends other district
salaries to the Nassau County
School Board, which has final
approval. Teacher salaries are set
by the board after negotiations with
a local union.
"Our salaries are in some cases
comparable to other school dis-
tricts," Ruis said Monday. He said
he relies on Florida School Labor
Relations Service data to determine


how local salaries
compare with oth-
ers in the state.
"To provide
quality services to
our children, it's
imperative that
we try to be com-
Ruis petitive," he said.
E District
salaries were
obtained by the News-Leader in
public records requested Jan. 4.
The $50,000 figure was arbitrarily
chosen by the newspaper.
Most of the top-paid employees
are administrators. After Ruis, top
wage earners are Susan Farmer,
executive director of business serv-
ices, who earns $77,529, and
Edward Turvey, assistant superin-
tendent of instruction, who

Light shines

in darkness
GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Everyone looked the same in
the dark.
The Rev. Jeremiah Robinson
Jr. had just reached the apex of his
sermon, "Being Obsessed with
the Obvious," when the lights sud-
denly went outside New Zion
Missionary Baptist Church in
Fernandina Beach.
For about 10 minutes Sunday
night, parishioners could not see
the black and white faces of fellow
worshippers at the 18th Annual
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Commemorative Service.
The congregation of more than
100 people continued to shout and
clap in the shadow of tiny flash-
lights as Robinson, New Zion's
pastor, made his case for probing
beneath the surface.
"We're obsessed with the obvi-
ous," he said. "How often do we
misjudge the goodness in other
folk because we judge the out-
side, when what's on the inside
is what really matters."
The Nassau County Christian
Leadership Conference (NCCLC)
sponsored the service. The organ-
ization, supported by local church-

NCCLC president the Rev.
James Arthur said the organiza-
tion has ambitious plans for the
future, and he hopes to partner
with other civic groups to achieve
the NCCLC's goals.
The unexpected loss of power
could not dim the program's pur-
pose, Arthur said.
"Even though the lights are
off, Jesus is yet shining," he said.
"It is a good thing for us to
remember a great leader,"
Robinson said during his message
commemorating King. Like Jesus,
King used unorthodox approach-

es to convey his message, he said.
"Everybody who was with Dr.
King didn't understand what he
was doing," Robinson said.
"Everybody didn't agree with his
tactics, but he knew how to bring
people together."
"All of us have to work togeth-
er," said the Rev. Bert Swearingen,
president of the East Nassau
Ministerial Association. "There
are issues facing us that we need
to speak (about) as God's people,
not black, not white people
but as God's people."

Super Bowl cleanup Saturday


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Keep Nassau Beautiful, Inc. and
the Amelia Island-Fernandina
Beach-Yulee Chamber of
Commerce are coordinating a con-
centrated cleanup event Saturday
in advance of the Super Bowl.
"In support of this effort, we
are asking the county to strongly
enforce its litter and sign ordi-
nances," said Regina Duncan, pres-
ident of the chamber, in a letter to
Mike Mahaney, county adminis-
trator.
'We typically see that in an
effort to capture the visitor's busi-
ness, some of the local merchants
initiate an overzealous sign cam-


paign. These become roadside
clutter and trash, in direct conflict
with the community's efforts for
pristine roadways," she wrote.
The organizations are also ask-
ing homeowners and businesses to
clean up and spruce up yards and
give buildings a facelift.
Neighborhood associations can
promote and organize projects in
their areas, and adopt-a-highway
groups can monitor roadsides to
be sure they present clean, attrac-
tive routes for visitors.
Todd Duncan, executive direc-
tor of Keep Nassau Beautiful, said
those new to the area are sure to
visit the beaches, if only for a look,
and he issued an appeal for indi-
vidual volunteers to beachcomb

for trash.
Adds Regina Duncan, 'We are
expecting a great many Super
Bowl fans to visit our island while
they are here. Most will be first-
time visitors, business leaders,
journalists and news media, and
we want to look our best, and suc-
cessfully showcase Nassau County
as a treasure. We are asking organ-
izations and other volunteers who
plan to help to register as soon as
possible with Keep Nassau
Beautiful."
Call 548-0162 for information
or to register.
The National Football League's
Super Bowl is set in Jacksonville on
Feb. 6, and visitors are expected to
begin arriving a week or so ahead.


MICHAEL PARNELI
News-Leader
The new Republican clerk of
court has hired a former clerk
elected as a Democrat to serve as
his chief deputy, and some Nassau
County Republicans are critical.
But Clerk of Court John A.
Crawford, who took office this
month after ousting incumbent
Republican Chip Oxley in a 2004
election, defends his choice of
Jerry Greeson as chief of staff/
operations.
"Who better to look over my
shoulder as I go down this path
than a highly, highly respected
former clerk of court?" he said
Friday.
Crawford said he wants
deputies who are "smarter, more
skilled, who have a bigger vision
. .. I think that is the hallmark of
real leaders, to surround them-
selves with good people."
Greeson, running as a
Democrat, won election as Nassau
County's clerk of court four times,
beginning in 1980, until Oxley
defeated him in 1996. Now a reg-
istered Republican, Greeson had
served as chief deputy clerk of
court from 1967-80.
He is also a former interim
Fernandina Beach city manager
and worked most recently as state
Rep. Aaron Bean's legislative assis-
tant.

men are friends of mine but I can-

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners are considering an increase
in iiipact fees for residential and
non-residential construction.
The proposed increases are
substantial in percentage terms,
but city fees still would be below
the state average.
How much fees will increase
depends, at least in part, on
whether the city intends to pur-
chase and develop new park land.
At least two city commission-


oleadercom


ers said at a workshop on the topic
earlier this month that they believe
the city has sufficient land to meet
future recreational needs.
Commissioners are scheduled
to take a tentative vote on a pro-
posed ordinance establishing high-
er impact fees for parks and recre-
ation, fire/rescue, police protection
and public facilities during its Feb.
1 regular meeting. A final vote is
scheduled March 1.

assumption that you will be buy-

Dates stamped on food prod-
ucts have different purposes, and
some are meant to be read by the
market manager while others are
there to inform the consumer.
All processed factory-pack-
aged foods are dated, but most of
this is in a code that is useful in
helping companies track distribu-
tion of a product, especially in
case of a recall.
W UThe federal government only
requires dating on poultry, infant
formula and some baby foods.
But in many states, certain per-
ishable foods are required to
have an "open date" that con-
sumers can read and understand
O ^when selecting a product to be
PM 0 sure that it is fresh.
L. But most manufacturers vol-
untarily place dates on products
P _to help consumers assess when a
food might be past its peak in
quality. They want their product
to be eaten when it is at its very
best, so that you will buy it again.
Here are some terms that help:
"Packed on" This refers to
the date the food was put in its
S Qpackage, not, as in the case of
fruit, for example, when it was
picked. In general, frozen foods
are best used within a few
O months of the "pack" date, and
most canned foods are best
used within a year for highest
quality.
"Sell by" This is the last
O ^date on which a store should sell
U the product. This is also called
L the "pull date," when the product
O- should be taken off the market
shelf. When that date approach-
es, markets usually put the prod-
^uct on sale to move it quickly. A
E sales exception is made for bak-
I ery products, which can be sold
at a reduced price after this date.
E Most foods that have passed
their "sell by" dates can still be
* m O safely consumed. Milk, for exam-
-- ple, stays fresh in the refrigerator
(a for about a week after the "sell

'Souper Bowl'
"Souper Bowl for Caring," a

fund-raiser, will be held at 2 p.m.
today at Fernandina Beach High
School. Admission is $2 or two
canned goods, which will be
donated to the American Red
Cross to benefit the victims of the
recent tsunami disaster. There
will be faculty cheerleaders and a
halftime show.

Benefit dogwalk
Bark Avenue Pet Boutique is
sponsoring a 5K dog walk for
Tsunami Relief on Saturday. The
walk will begin at Main Beach
cabana area at 9 a.m. Registration
begins at 8 a.m.
Entry fee is $20 per person.
All proceeds will go to the
American Red Cross
International Response Fund.
To register, stop in or call
Bark Avenue Pet Boutique, 1008
Atlantic Ave., Fernandina Beach,
261-2275.
Those unable to participate in
the walk but who want to donate
may make checks payable to the
American Red Cross Internation-
al Response Fund and drop them
off or mail them to Bark Avenue.
Participants do not have to
have a dog to take part in the
event.

Bank pledges$100K
Compass Bank, which has two'
branches on Amelia Island, has
pledged a donation to the
American Red Cross Disaster
Relief Fund to assist in recovery
efforts of victims affected by the
Dec. 26 tsunami in South Asia
and East Africa.
Compass will match employee


by" date if
your refrig-
erator is set
at 40
degrees or
just below.
In the case
of raw fish,


meat or poultry, if you don't
expect to use it by its "sell by"
date, you can freeze it soon after
purchase to prolong its freshness
for months. Just be sure to wrap
it well to prevent freezer burn
and flavor changes.
Other perishable packaged
foods that can be preserved by
freezing include fruit juices, cof-
fee, nuts, dried fruit and fresh
cranberries. Many cheeses and
cold cuts can be frozen, although
sometimes the texture will be
affected.
"Best if used by" By this
date, you should have used the
product, if you want top quality. It
does not mean that the product
cannot be safely consumed
beyond "quality assurance" or
"freshness" date. A "best if used
by" date is often found on cereal
boxes and cheeses.
"Expiration date"
Commonly found on baby formu-
la, yeast, and sometimes on milk.
Just throw it away. It's good-bye,
with the exception of eggs.
Federally graded eggs must have
expiration dates not later than 30
days from the time they are
packed, and stores may not sell
the eggs beyond this date. But if
you buy them close to this date,
they should be good at home for
another month if they are kept
refrigerated.
Sometimes we just see a plain
date stamped on a product. Then
we just have to guess what it
means. On perishable foods,
such as dairy products or juice, it
probably means a "sell by" date.
On coffee, tea, or dry goods, it's
a good guess that it indicates a
"best if used by" date its limit
of peak quality.

out such hefty salaries, especially
when that person is drawing a pen-
sion from the same clerk's office
that he retired from and the com-
mission has no control over the
budget.
"Had Mr. Crawford brought
Mr. Greeson back at a much lower
salary along with his pension we
might be able to live with that. But
I believe that this is absolutely the
worse case of double-dipping I
have ever seen, especially when
both checks come from working in
the same office."
Crawford defended Greeson's
salary and said the pension is irrel-
evant. He noted others in govern-
ment who earn a salary and draw
a pension from service in another
branch of government, such as
the military.
Greeson is not the highest paid
subordinate in the clerk's office,
according to information provid-
ed by Crawford's office. That is
Joe Blanchard, who is paid $80,883
a year as an information technol-
ogy officer.
A list of other top salaries in
Nassau County government pro-
vided by Crawford revealed more
than a dozen non-elected admin-

ing land. If it is not your intent,
then that amount should go down,"
Dr. James Nicholas told commis-
sioners Jan. 11, referring to a pro-
posed higher parks and recreation
impact fee.
Nicholas, a University of
Florida law school professor, said
he determined impact fees to
include future land purchases by
the city in anticipation of popula-
tion growth that could require
more recreational space.
But Vice Mayor Beano Roberts
and Commissioner Mike Lamb
suggested the proposed maximum
impact fee could be reduced
because the city's current land
ownership should be sufficient to
meet future recreational needs
spurred by growth.
"I don't see the need to put
money aside to acquire land,"
Roberts said. "The city owns an
awful lot of property and it would
be my thought that we have
enough land."
"If you take a look (at recre-
ational land) it far exceeds what
the comprehensive land develop-
ment plan calls for," Lamb said.
"We are on an island. There's only
so many ways we can go .
Proportionally, there's not enough
.Ail 'itoexpand.
"If you charge less, you've got
to Tpke.ce that your needs will
be less:," Nicholas warned. "When
you. charge an impact fee, you are


$70,000 a year.
"I strongly believe Mr. Greeson
is among the most qualified people
in the entire state to fill the posi-
tion," Crawford said. .
"I know firsthand of Mr.
Greeson's abilities because I
served as a county commissioner
during his final six years as Nassau
County clerk of court," he said.
"When Mr. Greeson was clerk,
the board's reserves were
always very substantial and the
millage rate was considerably
lower than today. Mr. Greeson met
his duties as chief financial
officer by always admonishing the
commissioners to stay within the
law, stay within the budget and
stay within the budget policy.
That is the same approach that
must be employed again if the
commission is to overcome the
dismal financial condition they
find themselves in today. That is
why Mr. Greeson has my full sup-
port."
Gandy, whose successor was
expected to be chosen this week
after his retirement as party chair-
man, said Crawford should have
been more forthright about his
intentions in his campaign.
"Usually when political candidates
are running for election they step 1
up to the podium and tell the peo-

making a commitment... to give
something in return."
Impacts fees are "a one-time
charge levied by a local govern-
ment on new construction to pay a
share of the capital cost of provid-
ing infrastructure to those new
developments," Nicholas said.
"The money can only be spent to
benefit new development."
Impact fees must pass two
tests. They cannot be "more than
the government's infrastructure
cost reasonably attributed to the
new development" And, Nicholas
said, "new development must ben-
efit from the expenditure of fees."
Developers who pay impact
fees expect to receive the improve-
ments, such as roads for concur-
rency, in return, he said.
While impact fees can be used
to fund capital expansion, they can-
not be used for maintenance and
operation costs, Niclolas told com-
missioners. Fees must be spent
within six years or refunded with
interest, he said.
Nicholas derived his data from
the county property appraiser's
tax rolls and arrived at proposed
fees by calculating the net cost per
square foot of developed floor area
by land use.
The proposed increases are
substantial in percentage terms -
.752 percent. for fire/rescue, 632
percent for .parks and recreation

public facilities fee would replace
a current administrative fee, while


pie what they are going to do," he
said. "It seems now in some cases
a few will get elected, then tell you
what they have done. I honestly
believe this maneuver would not
have passed muster with the vot-
ers."
Gandy said he also is con-
cerned about how Crawford's reor-
ganization of the clerk's office is
proceeding. He said he has been
told some longtime employees are
being demoted or urged to relin-
quish their jobs.
Crawford said he is reorganiz-
ing the office, and does not expect
to enlarge the staff of 86. Greeson
is the only new hire in the office,
though he has rehired two employ-
ees let go by Oxley late last year,
Crawford said.
'We're in a mess financially in
this county, and I think that's why
people put me here... to help get
us out of this mess," he said. 'To
guide, goad, encourage (county
commissioners) to get us out of
this mess."
Crawford said he will work with
new County Administrator Mike
Mahaney "to try to change the cul-
ture, the culture that has gotten us
into this financial mess.
"Criticism or not, the job's got
to be done."

a fee for sanitation would be elim-
inated.
In all, fees for residential con-
struction would increase by 626
percent, and 386 percent for non-
residential construction.
If approved as proposed, city
fees would be greater than the
state average for parks, public safe-
ty and public facilities. But the city
charges no fees for roads or
schools. Thus Fernandina's impact
fees would be $4,478 for a
2,000-square-foot single-family
home, compared to the state aver-
age of $5,488, according to
Nicholas.

New chamber chair seeks


to amplify business voice


WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19, 2005/NEWS-LEADER


STAY TANALL YEAR


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
Beginning a year as the new
chair of the Amelia Island-
Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber
of Commerce, Don Hughes said
building chamber membership is
a top priority.
Hughes, longtime chamber
board member and director of the
Florida Community College at
Jacksonville (FCCJ) Betty P. Cook
Nassau Center, began his duties
after he was appointed chair last
month.
"The reason we're looking for
more members is we feel we're
the most unified voice for the busi-
ness community as far as regula-
tions and ways of addressing them
go," he said. "Having more mem-
bers gives us a stronger voice and
gives us more input into which
actions we should take."
Hughes noted the chamber cur-
rently has about 700 member busi-
nesses, primarily located between
1-95 and Amelia Island. He also
said he wants to boost area geo-
graphic councils for more diverse
community input.
"We have a Yulee Council," he
noted. "The question is do we want
to duplicate that within our service


area to increase
communication,
be more effective
I.' :~', and have more
points of view.
We also want to
keep lines of
communication
Hughes open with elect-
ed officials."
Another goal
is to establish a "clear permitting
process" for building in Nassau
County.
"I think that's improved over
time, but there are also times that
people go through the proverbial
run-around to get their businesses
going," he said. "How do we make
this a friendly but responsible place
to do business?"
Continuing to spread the word
about the area and the chamber's
member businesses is another key
goal, he added. That includes giv-
ing members tools they can use
to promote themselves.
"We hope to bring in some pro-
grams to help our members
increase their marketing."
So far, the chamber has had
success with its newsletters and
website. Hughes said he would
.like to see those efforts continue
and expand. The chamber distrib-

Hughes lauded the effdctive-
ness of some of the chamber's pro-
grams, such as Leadership Nassau.
"That's been a wonderful pro-
gram that shows what involvement
can do," he said.
To help boost the chamber's
efficiency, Hughes said he hopes to
encourage more people to volun-

Currently, about 150 volunteer

"The strength of the change is
really the members and the people
who volunteer," Hughes said. "We
have a wonderful staff, but they
cannot do all that the members
want. One of my goals is to recruit
more volunteers from our leader-
ship."
The board has 18 members,
including its executive committee
and chamber President Regina
Duncan.
"Our staff does a very good job
of fulfilling the wishes of the
board."
Hughes said he is thankful to
past chairs for their help and input
as he begins his term.
"My role is to continue the good
work that has been done by Pam
Brown and Foy Maloy," Hughes
said. "They have been a resource
in my role."
Hughes added that he is glad to
be a part of a board that is open to
discussion and diverse viewpoints
in making its decisions.
"We're trying to do things as a
group," Hughes said. "The plans
we go forth with are brought forth
and discussed."

Real estate is the real deal


The law of supply and demand
is a rational, building-block tenant
in the world of economics.
If you have more demand and
less supply, then prices will likely
go higher. Conversely, less
demand with a large supply, and
prices go lower.
Real estate exudes this princi-
ple as much as any area of eco-
nomics. This is especially true in
certain locations, such as Amelia
Island, where demand dwarfs
supply.
Ironically, the real-estate
boom continues to defy skeptics
and reverberate across the U.S.,
according to a recent article by
Kiplinger's. The average home
price increased 9 percent in the
U.S. this past year, according to
the financial magazine.
The rip-roaring real estate
market has again befuddled many
pundits, who say an asset bubble
has formed and prices will
retreat. To quite the contrary, the
National Association of Realtors
called this past year the hottest


market in his-
tory in terms
of home sales.
And the
chief econo-
mist for the
National
Association of
Home
Builders fore-
Steve casts that
home prices
Nicklas will prove
.... resilient in the
ST e'S face of rising
interest rates.
a Amcof The chance
PLat E that home
prices will
drop is "zero nationally, zero in
major regions and close to zero in
any state," according to David
Seiders.
One well-recognized strategist
feels interest rates will not pose
as much of a problem as antici-
pated. Ed Yardeni of Oak
Associates says home prices are
not even outrageous given the


low levels of interest rates.
However, if interest rates rose
another two to four percentage
points, then real-estate prices
could feel pressure, according to
Yardeni.
The demand that feeds the
real-estate market comes from
various sources. The population
in the U.S. is increasing by about
three million people a year.
Demographics are supporting
real estate prices, from minorities
buying homes to baby boomers
acquiring second homes. While
homebuilding has kept a torrid
pace, it still cannot match the
demand.
The price increases in some
areas reached upward into the
double digits in 2004. The most
plentiful increases were seen in
California, Nevada, the Northeast
and Florida. The city of San
Francisco boasted the highest
average price per house nearly
$630,000.
The coastal areas east and
west racked up the biggest


gains. In South Florida, such as in
Fort Lauderdale and West Palm
Beach, price gains neared 20 per-
cent. And growth in Georgia con-
tinued at a blistering pace, with.
20 of the 100 fastest-growing
counties (based on new homes)
in the U.S. being there.
Once again, the Atlanta mar-
ket led all others in the U.S. in
terms of new homes being built,
according to the National
Association of Home Builders.
Price appreciation around Atlanta
was just 4 percent, however, due
to all the new supply.
You know, there are three
other tenets in real estate.
They're known as "location, loca-
tion, location." This explains how
hot-spot areas such as Amelia
Island, South Florida and
California again lead the way.
They have other qualities also.
Low supply. High demand. It
makes real estate a real deal.

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
The state agriculture commis-
sioner has appointed Clyde
Goodbread to the board of com-
missioners of the Amelia Island
Mosquito Control District of Nassau
County.
Goodbread, executive vice pres-
ident of the Amelia Island Nassau
County Association of Realtors, said
he pursued the seat because of his
regard for public service.
"I just believe in civic involve-
ment and civic service," Goodbread
said. "In the next four years, we're
probably going to have some pret-
ty important decisions to make."
The position pays a salary of
$400 per month, plus expenses.
The board will probably have to
decide whether to expand the dis-
trict, Goodbread said, adding that


he wants to help
the board ine"com-
ing to a good,
solid decision on
expansion."
Agriculture
Commissioner
s M Charles H.
Goodbread Bronson appoint-
ed Goodbread to
fill the vacant seat,
after incumbent board member Milt
Shirley withdrew from the race.
Goodbread's appointment became
effective Jan. 2, following Shirley's
official Jan. 1 resignation.
SShirley, who qualified during the
last election cycle, was running
unopposed. He withdrew after
deciding to move his residence out-
side the district to Yulee. The dis-
trict includes Amelia Island, Marsh
Lakes and the Piney Islands.

of the district board of commis-
sioners to reside within the district.
In August, Shirley said he would
ask to be appointed to the seat,
despite living outside the district.
The Division of Agriculture and
Environmental Services of the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services is respon-
sible for administration of the mos-
quito control statute and oversight
of the districts, said division direc-
tor Steven J. Rutz.
By statute the commissioner of
agriculture fills the vacancies, he
said.
"It's not unusual for the com-
missioner to make appointments
to fill vacancies for a variety of rea-
sons," including resignation or
retirement, Rutz said. "The deci-
sion-making process was not all


that long.
"We received a handful of
inquiries" about the seat, he said,
adding that "the commissioner
gives a fair amount of weight" to
recommendations from the district
board chairman and commission-
ers.
Edward T. Coop, owner of Coop
Systems Logistical Services LLC,
also applied for the seat.
Goodbread said he wants to pro-
vide good representation for his
constituents by maintaining the
board's financial status.
"At the moment we're probably
one of the only governmental agen-
cies that is financially solid."
Jack Bass Jr. and Troy Pitts are
the other members of the mosqui-
to control board.

The opening of an Adam & Eve
store in Nassau County is not an
issue of morality; it is an issue of
censorship. The question is: Does
any person or group have the right
to limit free speech?
It is well established that stores
such as Adam & Eve, Victoria's
Secrets, occult shops and Christian
bookstores all have a right to offer
their products to the public. In the
United States of America, that right
cannot be infringed upon by the
government (U.S. Constitution,
First Amendment). What any citi-
zen can do is personally refuse to
shop in a store where they have a
moral or ethical disagreement, and
if enough citizens do agree, the
store will close.
I believe the attorney for Adam
& Eve is correct ("Adam & Eve
warns of legal battle," Dec. 31).
Any attempt to legislate censorship
will result in a tremendous amount
of Nassau County (public) money
being wasted. The county is already
in a financial crisis and throwing
several million dollars at a guaran-
teed loser is not a responsible use
of tax revenue. Nor is it responsible
to use public (tax) money to per-
secute a citizen, acting within the
law, based upon one's personal
morality or their perception of
God's will.
The argument that a store such
as Adam & Eve contributes to rape,
molestation, incest or any other
violent perversion is specious.
There is no more a direct relation-
ship here than there is that "The
Nightmare on Elm Street" increas-

'To be, or not to be, that is the question." That
familiar quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet is appli-
cable to our community, I believe, when we consider
whether or not to publicly fund our local arts com-
munity, and if so, by how much. In my mind, the
modified quote should read something like this, 'To
be a progressive community, or not to be one, that is
the question."
My definition of a progressive community is one
that cares deeply about and takes measures to pre-
serve and protect its quality of life. I know, many
people describe quality of life differently, but I sus-
pect that in a progressive community, almost every
description includes an active, flourishing arts com-
munity. Ours has that.
Over the years, theater lovers have been treated
to so many outstanding performances at the Amelia
Community Theatre.
We've enjoyed musical performances at virtually
every venue possible, from the First Baptist Church
to Central Park to Fort Clinch. And works by our
local painters and artisans fill area shops and mar-
kets, many detailing the exquisite color and life
found in our natural surroundings and in our peo-
ple.
Now, this community could use our help.
The Amelia Arts Centre has received a $750,000
pledge from a benefactor hoping to assist the organ-
ization in its efforts to purchase the First Baptist
Church building. The pledge carried with it a chal-
lenge; secure a financial commitment from the city

immediately. Debt service for that loan would, like
all other loans, be financed by future budgets.
Seek funding from the county commission,
also.
Seek funding from local corporations.
Check the budgets of the city of Fernandina
Beach and Nassau County and see how much they
allocate to the arts. None. Yet commissioners from
both boards have consistently spoken about the
need for a civic auditorium, or arts center. Well, the
Amelia Arts Centre group and Amelia Community


Theatre have a way to meet those much publicized
needs and they will do all of the heavy lifting.
Some will say that funding the arts is not what
government should be about. I disagree. The arts
bring out the best in all of us, and in a community.
AAnd speaking of the community, I would encour-
age both groups to create an arts awareness pro-

gram for children who can't afford to participate. I
mean those children who otherwise would never
hear a symphony, never hear chamber music or
ever see a play.
I remember an assembly atFernandina Beach
High School when I was in the ninth grade, and
hearing a Russian violinist play Claire de Lune. I
had never heard anything so beautiful, and that
experience was the beginning of a lifelong affinity
for a kind of music I had never heard before. Every
child should have that opportunity.
That's what the arts do they elevate us, they
broaden us, they open doors we never knew exist-
ed, they enlighten.
So how does a community show its' appreciation
to those who give us so much? Well, a small way, a
very small way, is to acknowledge the special role
the arts play in protecting and preserving the quali-
ty of life here in Fernandina Beach and Nassau
County. And a way to acknowledge that special role
is to provide them with the financial assistance they
need.

VIEWPOINT/JOAN ALTMAN/FERNANDINA BEACH


Hire community development director


T he rapid pace of develop-
ment and redevelopment
that has plagued other sec-
tions of Florida has finally
reached the idyllic, quiet places of
Northeast Florida and our own com-
munity of Fernandina Beach. Because
of the strong and continuing effort by
some unscrupulous money people try-
ing to find guaranteed ways to specu-
latively invest in our community, it is
imperative that our local government
and its citizens be fully aware of any
changes to our system of governance.
Over the last few months we have
seen the following: suggestions to
change our local election cycle and
terms of office; changes to our land
development regulations, perhaps
without oversight committees being
given adequate review time; the abol-
ishment of five citizen's advisory
boards; a proposed restructuring of
the city's major planning boards; and
repeated breakdowns in communica-
tion abilities from one city department
to another especially in relationship
to the enforcement of our ordinances
related to the preservation of our his-
toric area and our trees.
With so much change occurring in
our community, much is at stake. At
some point in time Fernandina Beach
will be faced with a staggering wake-
up call as we are impacted by
increased density, increased popula-
tion, increased number of vehicles on
our streets, resulting in unmanage-
able congestion and a distinct loss of
natural space and greenery. The quali-
ty and beauty of our city will have
been eked away piece by piece until
one day we awake only to find what
we love and care about in Fernandina
has become an endangered species.
Currently we have good building
and zoning regulations that regulate
height, width and how much density
can be built within our city and where.
If our regulations would just be
enforced adequately without constant-
ly making exceptions to the rule, den-
sities would be being controlled and
our tree ordinance would be protect-
ing the ambience and air quality of
our city.

Beach demands many competent
department heads at every level of
city government To expect one indi-
vidual to be responsible for the admin-
istration of our city's day-to-day opera-
tion and simultaneously act as the
community development department
head is foolhardy and unrealistic. The
city manager of any growing city the
size of Fernandina Beach has an over-
whelming responsibility requiring
many hours of total committed
involvement in managing just the day-
to-day functions of the city. Attempting
to balance both roles is inviting the
dereliction of one, or both, of these
responsibilities.
Because of Mr. Bob Mearns' com-
petent dedication to both roles, the cit-


izens have previously only been incon-,
venienced by some miscommunica-
tions and slight delays in responses.
But we are greatly concerned about
the increasing rate of situations where
these small inconveniences have
developed into larger and more seri-
ous mishaps?
Wouldn't it make more sense to
hire another 'competent individual for
the community development position
and free up Mr. Mearns to administer
to the city's needs in a more focused
and deserving manner.
If we have allowed this arrange-
ment because it has saved the city
money, then it is time to re-evaluate.if
the dollars saved are worth the risk
that is being taken. No matter how


dedicated and capable an individual is,
there is only such much that one per-
son can do.
At this point if we lose one city
manager we will in essence be losing
two vital functions a city manager
and a community department director.
Wouldn't the money people just love
that? Unscrupulous people thrive on
chaos and confusion and our commu-
nity cannot risk our quality of life
because of a few dollars saved on pay-
roll.
We urge the city commission to
separate these functions and hire an
experienced community development
director.

He didn't let him get away with murder


A s the world weighs in against media hubris,
Soften well-deserved, it's bracing to note
1- some of the good that gets done on the
Lfringes in the name of principle rather than
,in the klieg-seeking interest of self-acclaim.
Meet Jerry Mitchell, 45, investigative reporter for
the Jackson Clarion-Ledger of Jackson, Miss., the
man whose 16-year personal mission is largely cred-
ited for the upcoming trial of the man charged with
murdering three civil rights workers 40 years ago.
Thanks to Mitchell's labors and to others he
insists deserve much credit state authorities have
charged Ku Klux Klan leader Edgar Ray Killen, a
sawmill operator and preacher, with the 1964 mur-
ders of Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and
James Chaney.
Killen, 79, is the first person ever charged with
the murders, though he and others were tried in
1967 on federal conspiracy charges in the killings.
Killen walked.
The story of the three victims, who were part of
Freedom Summer's drive to register black voters, is
familiar by now. Mitchell's story may be less so.
It is fair to say that without Mitchell's dogged and
often courageous reporting, not to mention an appar-
ently beguiling charm that convinces people they
should share secret records with him, many mur-
ders from the civil rights era would have remained
unvindicated, locked forever in the vaults of regional
amnesia.
Mitchell's sense of himself in these events comes
footnoted with an "aw shucks" disclaimer. An
unabashed Christian, he declines to accept credit for
some of the miracles that have resulted in justice -
the precise ratcheting of seemingly unrelated parts,
the stunning timing of random events, the fortuitous
encounters and serendipitous discoveries.
"It's been a matter of faith for me ilriighlioi this
whole thing," he says in a soft drawl. "God's hand is
in it. It doesn't make sense otherwise."


rMitchell's crusade, if we
may now use that word, was
the result of an epiphany in
S S 1989 when he saw the movie
"Mississippi Burning" with
Bill Minor, another civil rights
.reporter and mentor now in
his 80s, and two FBI agents.
The four sat around after the
movie and dissected it for
accuracy.
Those few hours constitut-
KATHLEEN ed a transformative event in
PARKER Mitchell's life.
... "I frankly was just stupid,"
he says. "My attitude was,
Orlando Sentinel 'What? This really happened?
I can't believe this really hap-
pened.' It was true 20/20 hindsight, but it was so
abundantly clear what happened. People got away
with murder."
That recognition stuck in Mitchell's craw, and he
started digging into the Mississippi Sovereignty
Commission, the state organization that worked
covertly to aid and abet America's native jihadists,
the Ku Klux Klan.
His first break came when someone decided
Mitchell ought to see some secret records showing
that as the state was prosecuting Byron de la
Beckwith for the 1963 assassination of NAACP
leader Medgar Evers, the Sovereignty Commission
was secretly assisting Beckwith's defense, helping to
acquit him.
As a result of that story, Myrlie Evers, the widow
of Medgar Evers, asked authorities to reopen her
husband's case. Re-prosecuting Beckwith was
extremely unlikely given that only nine pages were
left in the court file, but miraculously, an old box
turned up in a police department closet containing
crime scene photos and a fingerprint of Beckwith,


Ku Klux Klan leader Edgar Ray Killen
was charged in the 1964 murders of
Michael Schwerner. Andrew
Goodman andJames Chaney.


lifted from the murder weapon.
Then Myrlie Evers found her copy of the old
court transcript. Two months later, the prosecutor
found the murder weapon in the closet of his father-
in-law, a judge, who apparently grabbed the gun
when they were throwing away evidence.
Fourteen months after Mitchell wrote his first
stories, Beckwith was indicted for murder. He was
convicted and sentenced to life on Feb. 5, 1994.
As he was led away to jail, Beckwith kept mum-
bling two words: "Jerry Mitchell."
In the Schwerner, Goodman and Chaney case,
Mitchell again got a peek at some secret records -
an interview Sam Bowers, '60sera imperial wizard
for the KKK, gave to Mississippi's Department of
Archives and History that was supposed to remain
sealed until after his death.
In the interview, Bowers says he obstructed jus-
tice in the case and was happy to be convicted him-
self as long as the main instigator of the affair walked
out of court a free man. Mitchell subsequently found
several new potential witnesses and interviewed
jurors from Klerl's earlier trial, who said they dead-
locked 1 1-4 (plfavor pf convtion. One woman juror
said she "could nover convict a preacher."
Killen's trial date has been set for March 28. No
one will be surprised if he's led away to jail muttering
two words. Jerry Mitchell.

PAY Continued from 1A
makes $77,521.
John Mazella of Fernandina
Beach Middle School is the high-
est paid principal, at $70,785.
Administrators, including princi-
pals, are on 12-month contracts.
Assistant principals, who are on
10.5-month contracts, earn from
$53,076 to $55,944 a year.
Gregory Greetis, who teaches
the U.S. Navy Jr. ROTC program,
is the highest paid teacher at
$74,048. Greetis and Michael
Clifton, who teaches the Air Force
Jr. ROTC program and earns
$59,928, are on 12-month contracts,
unlike most teachers.
The ROTC program is unique


in that the school district pays only
half the difference between the
teacher's active-duty military pay
and their military retirement pay,
not the entire salary.
Charles Emmi earns $67,521
teaching at a halfway house on
Amelia Island, but the district may
count those students for state rev-
enue purposes. The district is the
"fiscal agent" for education pro-
vided to those in the local juvenile
justice system, Ruis said. Tracey
Barnes earns $59,429 teaching in
the juvenile justice program.
Robert Lawrence earns $61,020
teaching agribusiness at Hilliard
Middle-Senior High School. He is
on a 12-month contract.
The other 52 teachers on the


list which listed contract salaries
as of Jan. 11 earn between
$50,200 and $51,500. They are on
10-month contracts, and in each
case their pay includes supple-
mental income for supervising
extracurricular activities.
"Those people around the
$50,000 figure have been around
for 25, 30 years," Ruis said. "It's
taken them that long to get to that
point."
A school psychologist, Larry
Gillespie, who is on a 12-month
contract, earns $69,218 a year.
School psychologists are consid-
ered instructional personnel and
are represented by the teachers'
union in negotiations, as are school
counselors and librarians.


There are 10 school counselors
making from $51,815 to $56,534 a
year. Their pay exceeds that of
teachers because they are on con-
tracts longer than 10 months, Ruis
said.
There are six school librarians
on the list, earning between
$50,500 and $51,300.
Salaries for instructional per-
sonnel are set after negotiations
with the Nassau Teachers
Association, a union. Salaries are
based on length of service, number
and type of advanced college
degrees, completion of certifica-
tion programs and pay for per-
formance clauses that take into
account such factors as how stu-
dents do on standardized tests.
There is a separate union for
non-instructional personnel, such
as maintenance and custodial work-
ers. None of those workers makes
as much as $50,000 a year. A main-
tenance manager earns $55,059 a
year.
According to June data, there
were 1,351 employees in the school
district, 694 of them teachers.
Many of the teachers are new,
having been hired in recent years,
generally at beginning salaries,
Ruis said. A new teacher with a
bachelor's degree earns $30,000
for a 10-month contract.
Competition for teachers has
been driven in large part by a voter-
mandated classroom reduction act
that limits the number of students
per class and by a large number of
teacher retirements here in recent
years.
But Ruis said it's equally diffi-
cult to compete for administrative
talent "That's as much of a crisis as
the teacher shortage that's dis-
cussed," he said.
Federal and state governments
are mandating new laws and reg-
ulations for school districts each
year, he observed. "You've got to

Ruis said school salaries are ris-

a real emphasis on education, espe-

pointing to accountability efforts
such as the federal No Child Left
Behind Act, classroom size
reduction and now the state move
to universal pre-kindergarten class-
es.
"(Education) is invariably one of


the top issues" in national and state
polls and among parents, taxpayers
and citizens locally, Ruis-said.
"I think as a reflection of that, if
we don't have quality people or
can't attract quality people, we can't
have quality services for our chil-
dren," he said.
"We operate fairly conserva-
tively here and try to be fiscally
responsible and be responsive to
the needs and demands of the pub-
lic for services."

Woman gets probation for abduction

A Georgia woman who tried to
abduct her 2-year-old son from his
Yulee guardian last month was con-
victed of child neglect and ordered
to serve probation Thursday.
Ronda Register, 34, and her
boyfriend, Denny OdellTaylor, 36,
both of Nahunta, Ga., reportedly
broke into the Yulee house the
night of Dec. 13, went into a back
room and snatched her son,
Michael Register, 2. She does not
have custody of ththild:-
Michael Registerr'. Ykilee
guardian is related to Ronda
Register, Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves said.


Taylor, who is accused of wav-
ing a gun during the incident,
denied multiple violations of pro-
bation Thursday for 2001 convic-
tions of burglary of a dwelling,
aggravated assault, grand theft
motor vehicle and three counts of
grand theft.
Taylor reportedly pushed the
guardian twice when she tried to
intervene, once nearly pushing her
off the porch of her Harts Road
area home. They loaded the child
into a blue 1995 Dodge Dakota
pickup truck and fled.

School consultant defends numbers


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
Responding to charges that its
school impact fee study is "flawed"
and "skewed" against new devel-
opment, an Orlando consultant is
standing by its numbers.
"Our report... includes, as
we do again here, that a Nassau
County school impact fee is nec-
essary to meet f4fre capacity
needs and has bde correctly
determined," Stanl4 Geberer of
Fishkind and Associates writes.
Fshkind was cooidssioned by
the school board in December 2003
to conduct the study at a cost of
$35,000. It includes a student enroll-
ment forecast, a fiscal impact model
and proposed school impact fees.
In a seven-page response
Thursday to the charges by the
Northeast': Florida Builders
Association, Geberer details how
he determined that the Nassau
County School District will face a
$25 million shortfall starting in
2008.&
The builders' analysis by Fowler
White Boggs Banker PA of
Tallahassee has questioned this
and other Fishkind data.
The recommendation "that the
county begin.implementing impact
fees now in order to maintain


School impactfees
In its study for the Nassau County School Board, Fishkind and
Associates of Ortando has proposed two methods of school impact
I fees.
S.AfiM eeq Of $3,726, levied on all new construction regardless of
dwelling type, would generate $94.7 mition over the next 30 years,
'-0i4 lp*eberer, the study author, reports.
SThe other bopbtSti levy impact fees based on dwelling type,
Scoharging $4,212 for a single family home, $3,834 for a mult-family
; unit and $2,591 for a mobile home.
. That would generate more money $96.9 million over the next
30 years, according to Geberer's estimates.


capacity in light of the projected
$25 million is based on many errors
and unfounded assumptions," it
states.
Among other -things, the
builders allege new homeowners
could end up paying twice for new
schools once with their ad val-
orem tax dollars and again through
an impact fee and that growth
projections are based on invalid
comparisons with Lake County and
other faulty data.
Geberer replies that in light of
incomplete data from both the
school district and U.S. Census
Bureau, he used Lake County infor-
mation to help predict student gen-
eration rates based on dwelling
type single family, multi-family
and mobile homes because both


counties experienced 30 percent
growth rates from 1994-02.
MThe student generation rates
by unit type were not simply copied
from Lake County. Ratios were
determined using Lake County
data, but then applied to Nassau
County's average number of stu-
dents per household in order to
calculate the student generation
rates for each unit type. Due to
data limitations, this is an accept-
able way to calculate a student gen-
eration rate by unit type."
As for homeowners paying
twice, Geberer says he applied the
appropriate impact fee credits to
offset the 2 mill ad valorem tax
already levied for school capital
projects.
He also defends his timeline,


which forecasts a funding short-
fall starting in 2008. In Florida,
impact fees typically are used with-
in six years of their collection or
returned with interest, and the
builders' group has alleged the
shortfall won't occur until 2013 at
the earliest. It also notes that
impact fees cannot be used to cor-
rect existing deficiencies.
Geberer notes that the school
district's facilities work program
(FWP) of February 2004 identifies
a $25 million shortfall beginning
in 2008. "Including an additional
$25 million listed in the FWP for
ancillary/auxiliary expense need-
ed to serve the new capacity, the
school district will be facing a $50
million shortfall in 2008," he writes.
"Fishkind's impact fee calcula-
tions do not attempt to fund the
backlog for which there are already
identified and pledged revenue
sources."
The study predicts the school
district will be operating at 100 per-
cent capacity by 2008 and will add
more than 1,000 students between
2008-13, bringing total enrollment
to more than 13,400 students.
A meeting on school impact
fees is planned for 4 p.m. Jan. 27 at
the school district office, 1201
Atlantic Ave. in Fernandina Beach.

Reading program


aimed at parents


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
Teachers nationwide agree that
fueling a child's interest in reading
can create a foundation for a life-
time of learning.
First Lady Laura Bush agrees,
and has mounted a campaign to
promote improved literacy and an
interest in books in children.
"As parents, the most important
thing we can do is read to our chil-
dren early and often," she said in a
press release.
Florida has launched a "Just
Read, Florida" initiative. As part of
that effort, a workshop is sched-
uled Feb. 8, "Families Building
Better Readers," to help parents of
kindergarten through third-grade
children get their kids started in a
lifetime of reading.
The workshop, to be held from
6-8 p.m. at Yulee Elementary
School, will teach parents activities
they can do with children to help
them with their reading, said Linda
Morris, director of elementary edu-
cation for the school district.
"This program is one that will
give parents easy activities that can
be implemented at home and are


meaningful," Morris said. "They
don't require a bunch of fancy
things. They are simple instructive
activities that promote literacy and
will help improve their reading per-
formance and make them more
teachable."
Participants will receive a tool
kit containing ideas and activities
designed to help them, Morris
noted.
Prior to the workshop, a meal
sponsored by Domino's Pizza and
the food service department will
be served. The district's trans-
portation department will provide
transportation.
Morris said parents are encour-
aged to bring their children to the
workshop to help both expand the
world of reading and their learning
environment at home.

Mandatory school uniforms

Although one Nassau County
School Board member strongly
advocated mandatory school uni-
forms earlier this month, her appeal
met with resistance from the rest of
the board.
Janet Adkins said mandatory
uniforms for elementary school stu-
dents would benefit discipline and
increase the focus on learning.
She was speaking at a special
meeting of the board Jan. 6 to set its
legislative and district goals for the
new year;
: Other board members dis-
agreed, saying uniforms would
mean added cost for parents. They "
noted that previous efforts to intro-

Callahan Intermediate and Emma

.-However, they agreed to include
in their goal package a parent sur-
vey on uniforms.
"I think we need to try it again,"
Adkins said. "One of the biggest
concerns I have as apparent is the
culture in the schools."
Board Vice Chair Gail Cook said
she opposed a "top-down" approach
to implementing school uniforms.
Previously, the initiative came
from' school advisory councils,

we have a school (iniative) to add
it. I'm not in favor of it unless we do
a survey through the schools."
Adkins said all change meets
with at least some resistance and
,:that making uniforms mandatory
would ensure their success. She
: suggested uniforms for kinder-
garten through fifth grade, but said
she would settle for kindergarten
through third grade.
"That's why we should do this
from the top down, not making it
voluntary, but making it mandato-
ry," Adkins said. "The children
are so vulnerable to outside influ-
ences."
"If you do it at the elementary
level, you have put a financial bur-
den on some parents," board Chair
Muriel Creaner said.
S"We have parents who come to
the board meeting every year,"
Cieamer noted. They say, 'I have

Elementary uniform efforts.
"Everyone moved away from it.
Kids didn't want to wear them any-

Burns added that Polk County

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19,2005 NEWS News-Leader


Waterfront direction urged


V TOGETHER WE CAN:


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Richard Germano attended the
city's Amelia River waterfront rede-
velopment workshop hoping to see
a plan that will benefit his business.
"I want to see things cleaned
up," he said.
Germano, who owns the Crab
Trap restaurant on North Second
Street, said he is expecting rede-
velopment to make the waterfront
"eye-pleasing" to tourists and bring
more people downtown.
Fleet and Associates, the archi-
tectural and planning firm respon-
sible for developing a design con-
cept for Fernandina Beach's
community redevelopment area
(CRA) around Front Street, made
its second appearance before the
public Jan. 11.
"I like what I've heard,"
Germano said, adding that he had
heard similar ideas in the past. "But
I still don't see direction. I want to
see something happen."
Janice and Bob Fleet told city
commissioners they arc building
on the work of the city's previous
design firm.
"The city has already done a
plan and we're not repeating it.
We're taking it to the next step,"
Janice Fleet said. "We know there's
been a lot of community effort up
to this point and we didn't want
people to feel their time was wast-
ed. That's why we (worked)
through the previous workshop
and plans."
The pair began their presenta-
tion with a vision statement, derived
from previous public meetings, of
open views and public walkways, a
working waterfront and historic
character.
But property ownership, exist-

al project.


ing conditions, future land use, zon-
ing and traffic patterns are the pri-
mary factors that will determine
the types of development the city
can realistically incorporate into its
riverfront design.
Because the city owns "a big
chunk of land" at the waterfront's
center, the commission can make it
the focal point of the CRA, Janice
Fleet said.
"For this area, and the size of
property for the redevelopment
area, you don't have a lot of prop-
erty owners, which is good," she
said. "Because as we look to devel-
op it and redevelop it, you have less
property owners that have to get
together. .. But they obviously
have to be involved throughout the
whole process."
Certain existing conditions at
the south end of the waterfront,
such as vegetated flats, tidal flats
and marsh, will dictate the location


of specific design elements, Bob
Fleet said.
"You can't put a structure there,"
he said, "because it's subject to
flooding." Because the area is envi-
ronmentally sensitive, it could
serve as the "pedestrian link," fea-
turing boardwalks and observation
decks. "It's a way for people to walk
and enjoy the river," he said.
To make the waterfront "pedes-
trian friendly," the pair recom-
mended opening up Broome and
Alachua streets that "stop short
and do not cross the railroad track"
to cross Front Street.
"Anything we do along the
waterfront, we need people to get
there," Bob Fleet said. "Because
these roads are closed it makes it
difficult... Unless you open these
roads, it's not going to be as suc-
cessful."
With the streets open, "we need
to try to maintain as much as pos-
sible the view corridor out into the
Amelia River. and get people
shopping along Centre Street and
they flow right into the develop-
ment," he said.
The Fleet plan will reduce park-
ing at Front Street by creating new
lots on city-owned vacant property

at Broome and Second and Ash
and Second streets to complement
on-street parking.
"There's not a lot of land along
the Front Street and the water," he
said. "We don't want to put parking
out there if we can avoid it," he
said.
Upland development should
include "an anchor-type" facility
that "can stand on its own." A
restaurant combined with mixed-
use retail, eco-tourism or a water
equipment rental facility would be
appropriate, Bob Fleet said.
At the riverfront's north end,
the existing water-related industry
lends itself to a concentration of
working waterfront industries such
as a seafood processing facility
The firm plans to research the
possibility of salvaging some vacant
and "underutilized" structures, "in
keeping with the historical scale
and character of the area. To use
them and renovate them as part of
the fabric would really give it (the
plan) some authenticity," he said.
But the public should not expect
to see an actual design rendering
until Fleet presents a draft concept
plan. The firm is relying on citi-
zens to share their vision for the
riverfront.
City CRA Director Lupita
McClenning emphasized that the
public should call Fleet and
Associates with ideas and sugges-
tions. "They really do want public
input," she said.
Call Fleet at 730-8103 or e-mail
FLEETAP@CS.COM.

is scheduled for March 7 at 5:30

Putting the 'wow' into life


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader

Two consummate volunteers
landed in Fernandina eight years
ago, and they have proceeded to
repay the community for thq won-
derful life they have made here for
themselves and for others.
He is a farrier without a horse at
Fort Clinch although he dreams
that some day one'lfl appear so he
can have it to takeare of for festi-
vals and holidays:and to practice
to perfection shaking horses -
which is what fartrers do.
He is also a 'set-builder for
Fernandina Little Theater and goes
group bike riding on Thursdays,
"ending up at a downtown coffee
shop," Terry Stewart says. But that
coffee break is just a hyphen
between volunteer jobs, which
include water sampling at two loca-
tions on Egan's Creek and going
out to the Nassau County agricul-
tural facility in Callahan "to talk to
kids about water management
and responsible citizenship," he
says.
And he conducts classes at Fort
Clinch for elementary school chil-
dren to demonstrate what purpos-
es blacksmithing served when the
fort was young, and he demon-
strates what the blacksmith con-
tributes to the fort today.
"It's good to make the kids feel
good at the fort," Terry Stewart
says. "That's what puts the 'wow' in
lots of things." He also says he
believes that people have to have a
reason to get up in the morning
"and when they have a good day -
that's the 'wow' in things," he says.
In his spare time, Terry Stewart
does wood-turning, caning, sculp-
ture, makes chair alligators, serves
on the board of the Friends of Fort
Clinch and, with his wife Mimi,
serves as a venuemeister for the
Amelia Island Chamber Music
Festival concerts held at the fort.
"And I'm also my wife's secre-
tary," he adds seriously.
Mimi Stewart is vice president
for operations of the chamber
music festival, managing all com-
mittees "except marketing and
development," she says. She also
works part-time as the public rela-

organizations since moving to the island eight years ago.


tions and community relations rep-
resentative of Baptist Medical
Center Nassau, after having a
career in those fields when the
Stewarts lived in Chicago.
There she was the owner of
Stewart Communications, a public
relations firm, before the couple
retired and came south. She has
also served for years on the board
of Joy to the Children, a children's
Christmas charity, and she is a
weaver.
"I had a background in hospitals
and associations in my own busi-
ness," Mimi Stewart says, "but I
did not start out in that direction."
When her children were young,
Mimi Stewart was the editor of the
Wheaton, Ill., Leader, and after she
had been in that position for several
years she won an editor of the year
award in 1972. "I figured that I
could have time for myself and
a job after the day was over for
the kids," she says. "And it worked
out just fine."
But, Mimi Stewart says, volun-
teering is a way of life the couple
has had throughout their marriage,
and she says her motto is: "Nothing
is easy."
March will mark eight years
since the Stewarts came to Amelia
Island.
Terry Stewart had taken early
retirement from the CNA


Insurance companies, where he
had been in charge of operating all
mechanical systems for the com-
pany, "and at the time, I was also a


docent in the blacksmith shop in
the little historical village in
Napierville, Ill., where I had great
fun and wanted to continue that."
Mimi Stewart said it seemed
like a good idea to try island living
"because I fell in love with the
whole concept of an island," she
says. "So, the idea was to find an
island where Terry could black-
smith. And we had never heard of
Amelia Island until we were on our
way to St. Simon's Island (Ga.). We
got to St. Simon's and immediately
ruled it out Then, Fernandina had
everything we wanted, so we took
several trips down, then looked for
property, and since I'd always lived
in older houses that we fixed up, we
looked for an old house.
"But the more we looked, the
more we decided that we didn't
have another renovation in us, so
we found this land and built this
house," Mimi Stewart says of her
island home. "We felt right at home
here from the beginning. And we've
never looked back."

Police discover


house of horrors


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
A house on South Fourth Street
hides a nightmare of fetid condi-
tions, Fernandina Beach Police offi-
cers found Thursday.
It began when they went to the
house at 225 S. Fourth St to follow
a report of a 15-year-old runaway.
The boy's mother told officers he
was staying at the house, but had
run from her when she went there
to get him.
Police returned the boy to his
mother under orders that he not
come back to the house and
described conditions at the house
as including "child neglect, animal
abuse, code violations and health
risks."
In the backyard, an open sewer
line spewed raw waste onto the
ground. Animal control removed
five dogs and two cats that were
reportedly locked in cages with-
out food or water and matted with
filth.
There were six adults, ranging
in age from 24 to 38, and one child
other than the runaway living in
the rented house.
The city code enforcement offi-
cer was called to the scene along
with the state Department of
Children and Families.
"Someone needs to go to jail
for that," said Fernandina Beach
Police Lt Jim Coe regarding a child
being subjected to such conditions.
But whether charges are brought


is up to DCF or the State Attorney's
Office, he said.
"The living room was piled with
dirty clothing, trash and assorted
debris," police wrote. 'Two dogs
were inside the residence. I was
immediately covered with fleas.
The odor of urine and feces was
overwhelming." Kitchen counters
were covered with cockroaches,
rotting food, trash and dirty dish-
es. Mattresses in the bedrooms
had no sheets, were dirty and piled
with debris.
The officer wrote that the
kitchen floor was covered with
feces and urine, "so much that I
could not get to the back door
without stepping in it."
Fernandina Beach code
enforcement officers have author-
ity to shutter the house as a health
hazard, Coe noted.
"There have been crack houses
they have condemned as unsafe,
but I don't know whether they're
going to go with that," Coe said.
After inspecting the open sewer
line, police wrote, "The residents
stated they had reported the prob-
lem to the landlord. They stated a
plumber came out and worked on
the problem, but left without solv-
ing it. The plumbing issue was not
solved, so one of the residents
opened the sewer pipe so the waste
would continue to flow on the
ground. The backyard had a large
area of human waste on the
ground."

Police subdue teen


after cigarettes denied


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
An 18-year-old Fernandina
Beach man kicked the window out
of a city police car and was shocked
with an electronic stun gun
Thursday after a convenience store
clerk refused to sell him a pack of
cigarettes, police reported.
Brock Anthony Bean, 18, of
1351 Marian Drive, Fernandina
Beach, was charged with resisting
an officer with violence; knowing-
ly obstructing and opposing, crim-
inal mischief and damage greater
than $1,000 as well as disorderly
conduct and breach of peace.
The clerk at the Lil' Champ con-
venience store, 1015 Atlantic Ave.,
told Fernandina Beach Police that
Bean tried to purchase cigarettes
using a damaged Florida driver's
license as proof of his age. She
refused to sell them to him.
He then flew into a rage, the
report indicated.
"He cursed at her and threat-
ened her. He knocked items off the
counter and threw the newspaper
racks and trash cans across the
store," the police report states.


Later, the clerk reported, a
young woman came into the store
and asked, "Did you have fun clean-
ing up the mess?" The clerk denied
knowledge of a mess and the girl
said, "The mess my boyfriend made
when you would not sell him ciga-
rettes." She then reportedly
dumped a box of candy bars and
knocked several items from the
counter.
Fernandina Beach Police later
went to a house at 2058 Oak Marsh
Drive as they investigated. w
,IMen offktr- coi ronital liini
there, Bean was reportedly bel-
ligerent and threatened them. He
was handcuffed and put in the back
seat of a police car. A young woman
at the house also reportedly
became combative with officers
and tried to hit one with a door.
When an officer "grabbed her left
arm and pulled her from the door-
way," Bean became angry and
kicked the rear window out of the
patrol car, causing an estimated
$1,200 in damage.
An officer reportedly warned
Bean to stop before using a stun
gun to subdue him.

Attemptatluxury
Richard Knox, 49, 1000
Palmetto Drive, Yulee, was arrest-
ed Monday for defrauding an
innkeeper in an amount over
$300.
Knox is accused of checking
into The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia
Island on Friday and writing a
check for $2,500 for a week's stay.
The check, however, turned out
to be written from an account
with a zero balance.
Knox reportedly told deputies
that "he knew he did not have
any money but that the bank told
him that his new account checks
were good for two weeks -
(Knox) thought the could use
them even without money in the
account" The report indicated
that Knox owes the hotel
$1,257.07.

Hospital mayhem
Deputies went to Baptist
Medical Center Nassau on
Monday after hospital staff
reported a man with a gun.
They told deputies that a 26-
year-old Hilliard man, with two
other men, was "yelling, cussing
and causing a scene" in the emer-
gency room.
A witness reported that one
of the two men pulled out a gun
and showed it to the others,
claiming that would ensure he
would be waited on. The witness
contacted hospital personnel,
who called the Nassau County
Sheriffs Office.
When deputies arrived, they
handcuffed the man and
searched him for a weapon, but
did not find one. The other two
had apparently left.

JOHN L. CRAWFORD



Area trying

to disguise

itsperceived

redneck
'm excited that
Jacksonville and
Northeast Florida will
get some serious nation-
al exposure and an economic
injection when the Super
Bowl comes to Alltel
Stadium in a few weeks. On
the other hand, I can't help
but feel like we're the "nerd'
hosting a huge house party
that well get kicked out of *
once it starts.
All I hear is hI ilh area
is making preparations for
the big event. This road will
be repaired and that one
widened, the homeless folks
will be offered a special shel-
ter, The Jacksonville
Landing will be given a
"facelift," blah, blah, blah.
After all, we certainly don't
want to disappoint the
"somebodies."
Here's a novel concept:
Fix the roads for us. Provide
special shelters for the
homeless year round. And
offer an upgraded entertain-
ment zone to residents who
support the economy from
Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 every year.
Because once the Super
Bowl is gone, we'll still be
perceived as a bunch of red-
necks anyway...
On a positive Super Bowl
note, many "somebodies"
are offering some serious
cash for your home during
Super Bowl week. Nassau
County residents are expect-
ed to make anywhere from
$1,000 to $5,500 a day to
move out of their houses for
seven days. I thought about
renting out my house but
realized that my big screen
TV is about as close as I'll
get to the game...
Everyone knows that the
Super Bowl itself takes a
back seat to the event as a
whole, but this year's game
has the potential to be a clas-
sic, no matter which two of
the four remaining teams
make it Anyone who
watched New England shut
down Peyton Manning and
the Indianapolis Colts, how-
ever, has to like the Patriots
out of the AFC (anyone but
Pittsburgh fans, that is). Put
Philadelphia and Atlanta in a
bowl and pick one, as both
are playing similarly well
right now.
Gimme Atlanta and New
England to make it through
another round ...
On to some college foot-
ball, USC Trojans' junior QB
Matt Leinart decided to
return for his senior year
next season, delaying the
inevitably big NFL payday
that awaits him and showing
some good, old-fashioned
school loyalty.
While Florida State does
an exceptional job at keeping
its players around for four
years, both Florida and
Miami sure could use a few
more "Leinarts." Might as
well go ahead and book a
spot for the Trojans in next
season's National
Championship game...
Former University of
Florida running backs coach
Mike Locksley giving up his
post to follow ex-Gator coach
Ron Zook to Illinois is like
trading in an X-Box for an
Atari 2600. While the pro-
gram at Illinois is less
demanding, it is also a lot
less powerful...
Florida basketball might
not be doomed after all.
Many thought the Gators
would fold after their leading
scorer, junior guard Matt
Walsh, went down for four to
six weeks with an ankle
injury. But junior guard
Anthony "Peep" Roberson
and David Lee not to
mention a couple freshman
phenoms in Corey Brewer
and Al Horford have


stepped up their games and
have the Gators sitting at 3-0
in the SEC.
Just more validation that
head coach Billy Donovan is
a master recruiter.
John L. Crawford's column

Pirates fall 3-1 to Kenny


BETH JONES
News-Leader
After a scoreless first halt the Fernandina
Beach High School boys soccer team came
out the second half, scoring early on a Scott
Kellog goal. Bishop Kenny answered with a
pair of goals in less than two minutes and
added a final blow with a third goal with
three minutes left in the game.
The No. 8 Crusaders avenged the No. 6
Pirates' earlier win, beating the host Pirates
3-1 Friday night. It was FBHS's first district
loss of the season and the Pirates are 4-1.
Austin Danielson had the assist on the
Pirates' lone goal.
Pirate goalkeeper Mike Wilson had, 11
saves.
"We played a great first half," FBHS
Coach Daniel Frome said. "We played a good


SHOWDOWN ON THE WEST SIDE
.: :.:'.. 1 ,V


10 minutes of the second half."
But when a Pirate player was ejected
from the game, FBHS fielded just 10 players
to Kenny's 11.
"That really hurt us," Frome said. "I was
proud of the guys. They played a man down
with 30 minutes to go. That's hard to do."
The junior varsity Pirates also surren-
dered its 3-1 lead to the Crusaders and suc-
cumbed 4-3. Kyle Shearer scored a pair of
goals and Wes Hunt added one.
The Pirates (10-5) played at Providence,
a team that made it to the state semifinals in
2A last season, on Tuesday. FBHS hosts dis-
trict foe Stanton Friday night. The junior
varsity match is at 5:30 p.m. and the varsity
match starts at 7:20 p.m
The Pirates' nine seniors will be honored
before the game on Jan. 26 when FBHS
hosts Episcopal.

Stanton Prep,


Terry Parker

BETH JONES
News-Leader

Fernandina Beach High School's boys varsity bas-
ketball team collected two more wins last week, beat-
ing district foe Stanton College Preparatory School 74-
68 at home on Friday and edging Terry Parker 56-51
Saturday in a Martin Luther King Jr. tournament at
Forrest High School.
"The biggest thing last week was Jon Albertie,"
FBHS Coach Matt Schreiber said. "He has really.
given us a presence in the post. I think that's where
we ran into some trouble Friday night He ran into foul
trouble."
Albertie drew four fouls and played just 14 minutes
for the Pirates, but even with limited time, he managed
12 points, five rebounds, a block and a steal.
The Pirates are without Marcus Johnson, who
sprained his ankle a week earlier at First Coast.
"When Jon got into foul trouble, we were thin
inside," Schreiber said. "Luckily, we did a pretty good
job offensively against Stanton. We just were never
really able to pull away from them.
David Swan led the Pirates with 26 points, five
rebounds and eight assists. Casey Lowe had 18 points,
two rebounds, three assists and three steals.
It was a district game but. didn't count towards
tournament seeding, Schreiber said. The Pirates beat
Stanton earlier this season.
"It was the same type of game," Schreiber said. "We
led the whole time."
Fernandina never trailed Saturday, either, against
Terry Parker. The Pirates led 15-10 after a quarter, 28-
21 at halftime and 39-32 after three quarters, winning
56-51.
Albertie led with 19 points. Swan had 17 and Lowe
chipped in 10.
"We led throughout but were never able to put
them away and make things easy," Schreiber said.
"We won 10 games this year and I think eight of them
probably have been by less than six points. The
strength of this team has been the ability to win close
games."
The Pirates (10-6) have just one game this week.
They host Middleburg Friday. The Pirates are idle for
another week and host Middleburg Jan. 28 for home-
coming. The king will be crowned at halftime.
The Pirates have added a game to their schedule.
They will take on Melbourne Feb. 1 at 1 p.m. at the
* TD Waterhouse Centre in Orlando, home of the
Orlando Magic. The Magic will take on the Cleveland
Cavaliers later that night and the Pirates are selling
tickets to that game. The ticket also admits its hold-
er into the FBHS-Melbourne game.
"'The NBA runs a program where they let high
schools do this," Schreiber said. "Melbourne was
looking for a team to play. We're looking forward to
playing on that floor and watch (Cleveland's) LeBron
James in an NBA game that night."

Pirates on the Run 10K
The second annual "Pirates on the Run" race
will be held Feb. 5 in Fernandina Beach: The next
day will be Super Bowl Sunday with this year's
championship game in nearby Jacksonville.
This year's "Pirates on the Run" race will be
sanctioned by the Jacksonville Super Bowl Host
Committee, promising a strong and diverse lineup
of runners from around the world. The race will
begin at 8:30 a.m. in the historic downtown area of
Femandina Beach.
The race course will once again begin and end
in the quaint and colorful downtown area of
Femandina Beach, while passing by sea-hardened
shrimp boats, picturesque salt marshes and turn-
ing around at the Atlantic Ocean.
Last year's 10K race (6.2 miles) attracted nearly
200 runners. This year's group should be much
larger, with the race featured in the official Super
Bowl packet that is sent to media outlets and cor-
porations in 40 countries
Sponsors of the race will gain valuable expo-
sure to the Super Bowl crowd, which will overflow
from Jacksonville into the condominiums and
hotels and rental houses of Amelia Island.
Sponsors can place coupons and promotional liter-
ature in the race packets, as well as have their
names emblazoned on the commemorate, long-
sleeve race T-shirts. They will also be listed on the
race website at coolrunning.com and promoted
during pre-race activities.
Following the race, sponsors will be recognized
in a letter to the editor. Sponsorships are $250 and
offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Runners can enter the race by mailing in an
application or by entering electronically on the
website (go to the coolrunning.com calendar of
Florida races and search by date). Entry fee per
runner is $25 through Thursday and $30 until the
morning of the race.
For information, call the race hotline at 261 -
6748. The race e-mail address is pirateson
therun@bellsouth.net.

Global Junior Championship
Team USA kicked off its preparations for the
NFL Global Junior Championship IX with a series
of practices at The Bolles School. Bolles Coach
Corky Rogers is back on the practice field, plotting
international success against visiting teams from
Japan, France, Mexico and Canada. In preparation
for the tournament that will be played during the
week of Super Bowl XXXIX, Team USA's 36-man
roster of local high school all-stars will hold eight
practice sessions.
Team USA will bring together scholar athletes
from 24 local high schools: Baker County, Bartram

Fleming Island, Forrest, Hilliard, Jackson, Lee,
Mandarin, Nease, Palatka, Raines, Ridgeview,
Sandalwood, St Augustine, The Bolles School,
Trinity, Union County, University Christian, West
Nassau and Wolfson.
The squad includes Travis Williamson of
Femandina Beach, Brandon Higginbotham of
West Nassau and Zack Whittenburg of Hilliard.
The high school website NFLHS.com will again
keep fans and media up to date with all the latest
news from the NFL GlObal Juitor ChagiioAthip
IX. It includes ticket information, stadium direc-
tions, rosters of the competing teams, features on
players and coaches, and the tournament's history
since it was first played in 1997. Web surfers can
follow the players as they attend a welcome ban-
quet, hit the practice field, hold a press conference
at the Super Bowl XXXIX Media Center and enjoy

OUTDOORS


Lures




that talk

F or some 40 or so fishing seasons, fisher-
men have been using lures that create
sounds. Obviously these noise-making
lures are very beneficial to fishermen
when game fish are located in dingy water or in
thick weed beds where a talking lure is more apt to
attract their attention.
One of the more successful talking lures was
the Hot Spot, manufactured by Cotton Cordel. The
lure was made of plastic and looked just like a bait-
fish minus a plastic lip. However, the flat head of
the Hot Spot caused the lure to
I have a tight swimming action
and a sound chamber inside
the plastic lure was filled with
small BBs that made a unique
S.. rattling sound.
I When the Hot Spot was
retrieved rapidly, the flat-sided
lure made a very distinct rat-
tling sound which could be
heard by both fishermen and
Terry Lacoss fish from several feet away.
-- ...-- Although the most popular
OUTDOORS fishing application of the Hot
Spot lure that talked was catch-
ing largemouth bass, the lure
could be successfully used for a wide variety of
game fish including sea trout, cobia, tarpon and
more.
It has been several fishing seasons since the
introduction of the Hot Spot and, during that time
frame, several other lure companies designed their
own talking lures. Many used a sound chamber
that employed several steel BBs.
Recently Cotee's Steve Marusak invented a new
way to make lures talk.
"I think we are really on something this time,"
Marusak said. "We have discovered that by placing
a strip of special foil in a plastic bait, it makes a
very interesting sound, much like the natural
crackling sounds that baitfish make, which is quite
different from lures that use a sound chamber and
BBs. We have installed the special foil in a plastic
minnow that employs a fairly large paddle tail and
boy when that lure is retrieved. That paddle tail
causes the foil to crackle, just like a baitfish!
"We have also combined our new Cotee jiglip
with the Cracker Shad, which really makes the lure
talk. Fishermen can also use the Cracker Shad with
the traditional Cotee led head jig to give the lure a
natural wounded baitfish action."
One thing is for sure, the majority of both fresh
and saltwater fishermen are sold on lures that
4ake sounds. ..,.
Frequently fishermen will take a lure from its
display in a tackle store and begin to shake the lure
while listening to the unique sounds that it makes.
Some fishermen prefer lures that have a loud
sound, while other fishermen prefer lures that emit
a quieter sound.
And in many fishing applications, it really pays
to have in your tackle box a variety of lures that
both speak softly and loudly.
Lures that talk loudly normally employ a larger
sound chamber and larger steel BB's while lures
that are soft spoken will have a smaller sound


chamber and smaller steel BBs.
Fish that prefer loud spoken lures are often very
aggressive and more than likely haven't enjoyed a
good meal in several hours. While game fish that
are more attracted to more soft-spoken lures are
more than likely finicky feeders and have just eaten
a good meal of baitfish.
I would also choose a loud-mouth lure over a
soft-spoken lure when the water is discolored. The
loud sounds of the plug will help nearby game fish
track your lure down. A noisy lure also works well
when fishing in heavy cover such as standing tim-
ber, weed beds or where large schools of baitfish
are numerous.
Many tackle shops also carry sound chambers
that can be fitted to lures and even implanted in
plastic baits such as plastic worms. Some of the
more productive sound chambers are made from
glass and employ,,sevegLmall steel BBs. By far.
one of the more popular applications of this sound
chambers that make lures talk is implanting them
in plastic worms.
Sound chambers can also be glued to a lure,
such as the metal arm of a spinner bait with the use
of super glue. However, one of my favorite uses of a
sound chamber is to drill a hole in a float, then
push the glass sound chamber into the float. Now
you have a cork float that talks.
If you wish to hear a lure crackle like a real bait-
fish, visit www.crackershad.com and listen to
Cotee's new Cracker Shad really talk.


TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Cobia, above, are a very inquisitive fish and are frequently attracted to lures that make sounds.
Below, some of the first lures that emitted sounds were the Hot Spot and the Rattle Trap.

red grouper harvest is intended
to help rebuild red grouper
stocks in the gulf. The minimum
size limit for red grouper
remains at 20 inches total length,
and the daily recreational bag
limit in Atlantic Ocean state
waters is still five fish per person
(under the five-grouper aggre-
gate limit).
In addition, new management
rules are in place for dolphin and
wahoo. These rules are intended
to be consistent with recently
implemented regulations for dol-
phin and wahoo in Atlantic
Ocean federal waters, which
were developed to prevent over-
fishing of these species.
The FWC has also implement-
ed other measures to protect dol-
phin and wahoo in state waters.
The new rules are:
Designate dolphin and
wahoo as restricted species,
Establish a 20-inch fork
length minimum size limit for all
harvest of dolphin on Florida's
Atlantic coast,
Establish a statewide maxi-
mum recreational harvest limit
of 60 dolphin per vessel (except
10 dolphin per paying passenger
on for-hire vessels),
Establish a statewide daily
two-fish recreational bag limit
and a 500-pound commercial
daily vessel limit for wahoo,
Require commercial ves-
sels, harvesting dolphin and
wahoo on the Atlantic coast, to
have a federal permit,
Prohibit the sale of recre-
ationally caught dolphin or
wahoo (except qualified for-hire
vessels may sell recreationally
harvested dolphin), and
Require all dolphin and
wahoo to be landed in a whole
condition.
Other FWC rules that contin-
ue to apply for dolphin include
prohibiting the commercial har-
vest and sale of dolphin less than
20 inches fork length, a 10-fish
daily bag limit for recreational
harvest of dolphin and limiting
dolphin harvest to hook and line,
long lines (outside of state
waters) and spearing.

Diet dilemmas, confessions and 15-point days


Y ou can depend on it.
The first of the year and
the majority of resolu-
tions have to do with
health and weight. This year is no
exception. Our household is
counting points. Weight chal-
lenged people know that Weight
Watchers is considered one of
the most consistently successful
weight loss programs. It uses a
point system. Everything you eat
is assigned points.
Weight Watchers has deter-
mined the number of points
based on serving size, number of
calories, fat grams and fiber
grams in a serving of food. First
you determine the number of
points appropriate for your height
and weight and set a goal each
day to keep your total points with-


in range. If
you are
under you
get to roll
them over
i ~ and if you
," y go over you
need to find
a way to
make them
up. It
makes you
Dickie Anderson think
--- ...-- before you
say yes to
FROM THE that basket
PORCH of rolls or
dessert.
Finding out what food or drink
gets what points turns into a
game. Your total points per day
may range from 20 to 30 depend-


ing on your weight. So you need
to "weigh" buffalo wings at 9
against a variety of vegetables
like broccoli, asparagus, beans,
cauliflower, lettuce, etc. which all
count for 0 points. Some bell
ringers include pizza, most fast
food, onion rings, etc. Not sur-
prising.
The exercise part of the new
year/new us plan is a little easier
because we both do like to exer-
cise. Variety is important and Big
Guy's golf and my tennis are not
enough.
We are trying to walk more
and dusting off our bicycles for
some spring training rides.
We do not go to the weekly
confessionals that are part of the
traditional Weight Watchers pro-
gram, but know the discipline of a


weigh-in and group support is
effective. We just cannot fit anoth-
er thing in our busy schedules, so
our group is two and meets every
day.
We confess to each other and
can produce significantly effec-
tive dirty looks when necessary.
I laughed out loud reading a
review of recently published diet
book: The North Beach Diet: Add
Belly and Hip Fat Instantly with
Batter Fried Twinkies and More
by Kim Bailey. The book is a
clever parody of the diet books
that continue to be best sellers
year after year. All the books
demand sacrifice and commit-
ment. Starvation, denial and
forced physical activity are just
some of the requirements. Bailey
has quite a different philosophy


as she proudly states, "I gained
145 pounds, became emotionally
insulated, and allowed food to
control every aspect of my life...
now you can too!" Her advice
includes:
Slower is always better
Always use food as an emo-
tional outlet
Stressed spelled backwards
is desserts -
As we struggle to lose weight,
and live a healthier lifestyle a lit-
tle laugher helps and Bailey has
given us something to laugh
about.
So we are off in a new year
and a chance for a fresh start. So
far this is a 15-point day.

COOKING WITH

PLEASURE


ALICE WALSH



Party


fare for


healthy


nibbling

T he chances are good
3 that you indulged
generously in rich
and fat-full foods
over the holidays, felt just a
tad guilty and have resolved
to do better now that a fresh
new year has begun. I con-
fess to all the above! And
while I don't have a problem
with weight gain, and, in fact,
welcome a few pounds, I do
want to keep a low intake of
fats and a high intake of veg-
etables and fruits, which is
the healthy way to go.

But now is the time
for reform, if not
repentance, so join
me in getting back
to healthy eating.

One of the richest sources
of the "bad" kind of fats, and
the most tempting, is served
before or in place of a meal.
Of course, I am speaking of
appetizers and party nibbles,
often made with cheese,
sausage and sour cream -
all heavy sources of choles-
terol. And, during the holi-
days, only the most deter-
mined and strong-willed
among us pass them up for
"rabbit food:" I humbly admit
that I am not one of that
group and happily enjoyed it
all.
But now is the time for
reform, if not repentance, so
join me in getting back to
healthy eating. But we can
still enjoy party-type food by
substituting slimmed-down
versions of favorites. Here
are two dips from The
American Cancer Society
Healthy Eating Cookbook that
do just that:

EASY SPINACH DIP

1 10 oz. pkg. frozen
chopped spinach
1 cup low fat sour cream
1 1/4 cup low fat plain
yogurt
1 1/4 cup finely chopped
fresh parsley
1 1/4 cup finely chopped
scallions (including tops) or
green onions
1 teaspoon salt (opt)
Freshly ground pepper
(I like to add chopped
water chestnuts, too)

Thaw and drain spinach,
wrap in paper towels and
squeeze until dry. In a bowl,
combine spinach, sour
cream, yogurt, parsley, scal-
lions or green onions, salt
and pepper to taste, and mix
well. Refrigerate at least four
hours or overnight to blend
flavors. Serve with fresh veg-
etables or low fat pita chips.

FRESH
VEGETABLES WITH
CUCUMBER DIP

112 oz. container of plain
low fat yogurt '
1 cup cucumber cut in
small pieces with seeds and
skin removed
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 1/4 cup lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Variety offresh seasonal
vegetables, such as asparagus
tips, broccoli, carrots, celery,
snow peas, and yellow and red
pepper

Combine yogurt, cucum-


ber, dill weed and lemon
juice in a blender or food
processor and blend until
smooth. Add salt and pepper
to taste. Chill until ready to
serve.
Arrange vegetable strips
in a circle on large platter
and place dip in small bowl in
the middle.
