McGill Aviation Corp. will be
the fixed-base operator at
Fernandina Beach Municipal
Airport for the Super Bowl,
Commissioner John Crow said.
"McGill Aviation will be respon-
sible for airport operations during
the Super Bowl," he told city com-
missioners Tuesday night.
But the company and city
remain in a dispute about the avia-
tion company's rights outside its
leasehold area, McGill's vice pres-
"We've agreed not to agree,"
Sean McGill said. "It's going to
have to be settled after the Super
The company and city have
been in a dispute for months. It
intensified last month after the city
sought additional payment for serv-
ices during the Super Bowl. The
city considered, but ultimately did
not act on, a proposal to bring in a
second fixed-base operator to help
with aircraft landing and parking
during the Super Bowl.
In a Jan. 12 letter to McGill, City
Manager Bob Mearns said the firm
can use areas outside the lease-
hold if the company agrees to pay
the city "a $20 per plane per day
parking fee" and a 10 percent fuel
flowage fee, double the standard
fee under the current lease. ,
"The city has attempted for
some weeks to negotiate the terms
of use of areas outside the lease-
hold but has not been successful in
obtaining a resolution," Mearns
"The city's proposal attempts to
* obtain full payment for (a Federal
Aviation Administration) tower

reply to Mearns on Jan. 12. "The

rary tower... or the added fire and

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners approved a resolution
Tuesday to support long-term fund-
ing for the.A lia.AUrf:Centre.
Despite several requests from
others to make money for all local
arts groups a part of the resolu-
tion, the commission voted 4-1 to
provide annual funding exclusive-
ly for the center in future city budg-
"(If) the other groups would like
'a piece of the pie' so to speak, I
would recommend that Amelia
Arts Centre may be the official
organization for the city," Mayor
Greg Roland said. "If these other
groups would like funds, they (can)
join that organization and get it
from within the donation that we
make to Amelia Arts Centre."
Commissioner Mike Lamb
voted against the measure that des-
ignates the funding source as a
$58,000 "payment in lieu of taxes"
the city receives from the Ocean
Highway & Port Authority.
If the commission sets a goal
to spend taxpayer dollars to sup-
port the arts, "it should be for the
whole and not for any one particu-.
lar group," Lamb said.
"This commission does not
have the right to single out one
group, just because it's a good idea,
and spend taxpayers' money with-
out some investment coming back
to the city," Lamb said. 'This is a
private enterprise. This is not a

there will be a need for an inter-

going city funding. Members tout-
jed the center, which produced its
first concert Saturday, as a rev-
enue generator for downtown and
also reminded the commission
that Port payments had previously
been partially designated to fund
a civic auditorium.
The $58,000 is "related to that
which in ad valorem taxes we
would have lost as a result of the
port authority taking over prop-
erties north of us," Vice Mayor
Beano Roberts said. Half was
intended to fund a civic center,
the other half was earmarked for
acquisition of property for park-
ing, he said.
"The idea was to eventually
have a civic auditorium," Roberts
said, explaining that attempts to
acquire a site were "all beyond
our grasp." Civic auditorium build-
ing projects in the 1980s carried a
$9-11 million price tag, he said.
"This is not this vast auditori-
umn that we might dream of seeing.
However, it's going to fill an awful
lot of the bill and for a fraction of
the cost," Roberts said, adding
that the Amelia Arts Centre will
help downtown economic devel-
opment. "It's a minimal contribu-
tion on the part of this city."
"You guys are not in your infan-
cy," he told members of the
Amelia Conmmunity Theatre and
the Island Art Association. "You're
not a fledgling entity as this is.
And it needs our help," he said,
calling the Amelia Arts Centre "far

competing groups but as cooper-
ative groups," Commissioner Ken
GLENDA S. JENKINS
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners voted to include funding
exclusively for the. Amelia Arts
Centre in upcoming budgets
despite requests to include fund-
ing for other groups as well.
"We would like to think that
there will be equitable funding for
the local established art groups
in the new budget," Roger Moore

Ocean Highway & Port
Authority funds, initially desig-

budget item since the original res-
olution was rescinded, said
Graham Thomas of the Amelia
Community Theatre (ACT).
"So it's equally hard for me to
understand why they are suddenly
proposed to be channeled to one
arts group and on a long-term
basis," he said. "I believe the arts
groups need to share and share
alike on any city funding. I don't

Walker said. "This is just an oppor-
tunity to help them to purchase a
facility, that I think is sorely need-
ed." The arts center plans to close
on its purchase of the First Baptist
Church building this spring.
Funding the art center will help
"parlay more grants" for all the
individual art associations,.
Commissioner John Crow said.
"The best place to start is a
building somewhere that people
have already obligated money to
help," he said.
"I just want to point out that
$50,000 a year for 10 years is a
pretty good jump start for any
organization," Lamb said.
But that amount is "not set in
stone," Roland said.
All arts organizations should
"sit down at the table and see if
you can come together under one
roof," he said about the Amelia
Arts Centre serving as the cen-
tral arts agency.
The commission has been
selective in appropriating funds
to civic and non-profit groups in
the past, he said. "We do itemize
our budget That's just A fact of
how to spend city money."
Many people hold member-
ships in several arts organizations
and support them financially,
Carol Wyatt of Field Street said,
adding that "funding should be
equally divided among all the art
groups and not just one."
"At ACT, we believe that all the
nonprofit arts groups should have
an equal opportunity to benefit
from any city funds that are set
aside for the arts," said Linda
McLane, the theater's managing
director. 'This community is so
important to our theater. We hope
that ACT is important tq our city

Matters were made worse when
another driver trying to turn in the
same direction pulled to the right of
her daughter's car, blocking her
view of eastbound traffic.
"My daughter couldn't see to
know when to pull out," Goodbread
said. "That's how these accidents
happen. It seems like there is no

is detection devices that trigger a
red light for traffic on A1A when a
car arrives on a feeder road, Deliz

have magnetic "loops" underneath
the asphalt that detect the pres-

the impact the development will

But regardless of what studies
indicate, Goodbread says she feels
the best way to prevent accidents at
the confluence of Mt Zion Road,
Blackrock Road and AlA is to
install full traffic signals now.
"There have been several people
killed," Goodbread said. "I think
there needs to be a red light there.
I guess they have to have more
people killed there before they will
put a light there."
AIRPORT Continued from 1A
The city has added a tempo-
rary control tower for the weeks
just before and after the Super
Bowl on Feb. 6. The city last
month asked McGill for $50,000 to
help pay for the tower and addi-
tional fire/rescue expenses
expected to be incurred from
increased airport traffic.
City Attorney Debra Braga,
responding in a Jan. 14 letter to
McGill's assertions, stated that
the city has "no option except to
require you to operate entirely
within your leasehold area."
But "McGill Aviation is not lim-
ited to its leasehold premises,"
according to the company's attor-
ney, James Middleton, "... and

tower and all the associated lines

storage, passenger welcome areas,
staging, rescue and firefighting
and helicopter operations. Taxiway

McGill hired and trained more
than 3ex5 additional people to help

the last six months.
Allocate $1 million to meet
cash-flow needs in the new fiscal
year that begins July 1. This "cash

Reduced reserves, increasing
expenditures and budget deficits in
the past three years led Standard
& Poor's Rating Services to rate
county revenue bonds "negative"
rather than "stable," which can
lead to higher borrowing costs.
Crawford, the county's chief
financial officer, was at center stage
Wednesday just two weeks after
taking office. He was joined by his
new chief deputy, former clerk of
court Jerry Greeson, and top finan-
cial deputy Ted Selby, who pre-
sented the numbers.
But there are differences
between the approach Crawford's
team offered and one suggested
last month by Mahaney, hired
Sept. 1. For example, Mahaney
proposed the county consider sell-
ing its now vacant 14th Street
annex and use proceeds to pay
down the line of credit. There are
proponents for a new library at
that site, though, and there was
no mention of land sales
Crawford said he and
Mahaney's staff worked together
on the proposals adopted by com-
missioners. "From here on, the
administration and the clerk's
office are going to walk arm in arm
on this," he said.
Commissioners set another
special meeting, at 9 a.m. Feb. 2, to
continue working on Mahaney's
goals and objectives, which they
also have adopted.
Commission Chair Ansley
Acree warned there likely will be
difficult financial decisions in the
months ahead as commissioners
seek to keep faith with their new
promise of fiscal responsibility.
Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham, back on the board
after an eight-year absence, told
Crawford, himself a former com-
missioner, "When we were on the
board (together) before, we were
revenue-driven, not expenditure-
driven.... We've got to learn to use

W ell, the sign is up, and it won't be long
before the merchandise is being
stocked at the new Adam & Eve adult
store in Yulee. What is less certain is
the amount of business this new store will generate,
and that economic factor some residents say is what
should determine whether or not the store will con-
tinue to operate in our community.
While this issue has recently become a major
center of controversy between local religious
groups opposing the store on one side, and
equally vocal supporters who go so far as to
contend "there is no such thing as community stan-
dards" on the other, the reality is that this conflict is
symptomatic of the ongoing attack on the funda-
mental principles on which this great country was
Certainly one of those principles is the freedom
6f speech. But to suggest that our Founding Fathers
would equate the freedom to criticize the govern-
ment and its leaders (which was their prime motiva-
tion) with making sexually oriented material readily
available to the general public is quite a stretch.
One reader has gone so far as to say that preventing
the store from opening is a form of censorship, and
that "Americans are dying overseas to provide other
peoples these very same freedoms." Do you really
think so? I have difficulty picturing any store like
Adam & Eve opening in downtown Baghdad where
women have traditionally dressed in a burqa and
These are the same people who say things like,
"America is a secular country, and government deci-
sions must be made without reference to religion."
Perhaps they really mean our form of government is
secular (i.e., not related to religion), but when over
80 percent of our citizens (most of them Christians)
acknowledge a belief in God, it would be difficult to
call us a true secular country.
Critics of allowing any mention of God or His
Son in any public forum cite the fact that the U.S.
Constitution does not specifically mention God (by
name), nor does it offer specific Christian refer-
ences. What these critics fail to mention, either by
ignorance or design, is that the framers of the con-
stitution believed that the issue of religion was best
left to individuals and their respective states. This is
not particularly surprising since there was a great
fear in the 18th century of giving too much power or
authority to the new centralized federal govern-
Instead, issues like religion were addressed in
WAIT A the various state constitutions.
MINUTE Tennessee's, for example, stat-
ed, "N6 person who denies the
being of God, or a future state
of rewards and punishments, shall hold any office in
the civil department of this State." Delaware went so
far in its constitution of 1776 to say, "Every person
who shall be chosen a member of either house, or
appointed to any office or place of trust (shall) make
and subscribe the oath to profess faith in God the
Father, and in Jesus Christ His only Son, and in the
Holy Ghost, one God, Blessed for evermore; and I
do acknowledge the holy scripture of the Old and
New Testaments to be given by divine inspiration."
Other state constitutions had similar references to
God, and their authors had also participated in the
adoption of the nation's Constitution.
In fact James Madison, the main author of the
Constitution and a subsequent President of the
United States, is reported to have said, "We have
staked the whole future of the American civilization,
not upon the power of government (but) upon the
capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to
control ourselves, to sustain ourselves, according to
the Ten Commandments of God."
When Thomas Paine, best known for writing
Common Sense, went to his friend Ben Franklin with
a draft of his new treatise, Age of Reason (which
questioned the authority of the Bible and its teach-
ings), Franklin told him such a paper was ill-advised
and added, "If men are so wicked with religion, what
would they be if without it?" Paine went ahead and
published his paper anyway, and was soundly
attacked by many of the founding fathers. John-
Adams wrote, "The Christian religion is, above all
the religions that ever prevailed o- existed in
ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom,
virtue, equity, and humanity." Of course, not every-
one agrees with such an assessment.
The "other side" never seems to lack for individ-
uals or groups who are willing to carry the banner
of secularism in the never-ending battle against
Judeo-Christian values in our country. Their latest
champion is Michael Newdow, an atheist from
California, who went to federal court to get the
words "under God" removed from the Pledge of
Having failed in that effort, he again went to
court this week to remove any prayers or mention
of God (as in the oath of office) from the presiden-
tial inaugural ceremonies.
So when our neighbors decide to band together
to voice their opposition to the adult store in Yulee, I
commend them and wish them well. I offer this
encouragement knowing that the deck is stacked
against them (because county leaders have not
acted in a timely manner) and that these good folks
may well lose, but they are still willing to stand up
for what they believe in. They epitomize the quota-
tion from Sir Edmund Burke who wrote, "The only
thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good
men to do nothing."
As for the Michael Newdows and the others of
the world who will not be satisfied until all mention
of God and Christianity are removed from their
everyday lives, I will take some small measure of
satisfaction knowing that every time they write the
date on a check, or on a letter, or see it on a newspa-
per, they are witnessing the impact Christianity has
had on the lives of every person on this planet. After
all, what event occurred that changed our dating
from B.C. (Gosh, I wonder what the "C" stands for?)
to A.D.? If that's secular, I'll take it

FEMA. or Free Extra Money Agency
An absolutely true news item: The Federal
Emergency Management Agency is blam-
ing a "computer glitch" for $12 million in
overpayments of hurricane-relief funds in
Florida and other states.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency
today announced that it will be changing its name to
the Free Extra Money Agency.
"The new letterhead more accurately reflects our
open and unquestioning generosity," explained
Sincoming'FEMA Director Homer Simpson. "Don't '
think of us as some lumbering, unresponsive
bureaucracy. Think of us as a giant ATM machine,
without the withdrawal fees!"
FEMA has been taking heat ever since The South
Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that the agency has
paid out nearly $30 million to residents of Miami-
Dade County for losses supposedly caused by
Hurricane Frances over the 2004 Labor Day week-
The Category 2 storm came ashore 100 miles
north of Miami-Dade, which suffered hardly any vis-
ible damage. Nonetheless, more than 12,500 claims
were approved for the Miami area.
Among the items that FEMA paid to replace
were 5,260 television sets, 423 personal computers,
1,091 microwaves and 1,440 air conditioners. The
agency also paid for hurricane-related "dental
injuries" and for a funeral, although Frances directly
caused no deaths in South Florida.
Still, FEMA officials continue to defend the gost-
ly payouts in the Miami area.
"People say we paid all these stupid claims just
because the election was coming up, and Florida
was a crucial swing state. That's hooey," Simpson
insisted. '"We paid all these stupid claims because
we're bumblers, plain and simple. It had nothing to
do with politics!"
Last week, FEMA announced that a "computer
glitch" sent duplicate hurricane-relief checks to
about 3,500 claimants, many of them in Florida.
Astonishingly, hardly any of the recipients have
voluntarily returned the extra money, which totals
more than $12 million. FEMA said that it will try to
-H recoup the funds as soon as
"I truly believe in the basic
honesty and integrity of pee-
B ple," Simpson said. "I also
believe in UFOs, time travel
and talking cats."
Among the most contro-
versial claims approved by
FEMA inspectors in Miami-
'Dade-were several that cited
"ice/snow" damage from the
HIAASEN On Jan. 10, the agency
... stated that those claims had
resulted from other storm-
Miami Herald related forces, and that
inspectors had simply
pressed the wrong keys on their computers.
"See, the button coded for 'ice/snow' damage is
right next to the button coded for 'rampaging mon-
key/fruit bat' damage," Simpson explained. "It's an
honest mistake. Could happen to anybody."
Not so easily resolved is FEMA's account of the
hurricane's weather impact on Miami-Dade, which
remains sharply at odds with those of government
FEMA says that the county experienced winds of
85 mph and up to. 10 inches of rain. However, the
National Hurricane Center says that the maximum
amount of recorded rainfall was only 4 inches and
that the winds never topped 59 mph. In fact,
throughout much of Miami-Dade, the winds never
blew more than 47 mph, below tropical-storm
And while Frances spawned not a single tornado
in the county, FEMA inspectors listed "tornado-
wind" damage as the reason for paying to replace
195,000 personal items.
"Oh, that's easy to explain," Simpson said. "The
tornadoes up in St. Lucie County kicked up all sorts
of heavy debris, which flew around and around until
it came tumbling down 100 miles away, flattening all
those microwaves and TVs in Miami. Just like what

Earlier this month, the U.S. Senate Committee
on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs
said that it would investigate "allegations of fraud
and waste in the distribution of disaster aid" by
The agency says that it has paid out more than
$1 billion in Florida alone to victims of last year's
four hurricanes. Yet some residents caught in the
paths of those storms have complained that FEMA
has denied or reduced their claims while squander-
0 ing millions in the Miami area, where damage was
To avoid similar controversy during the upcom-
ing hurricane season, FEMA will initiate a new
streamlined system for residents seeking relief.
'"This year, the Free Extra Money Agency is ask-
ing folks to file their damage claims well in advance
of the storm," Simpson said. "In fact, don't even wait
until it's a full-blown hurricane. The day that puppy
becomes a tropical depression off the African coast,
send us a list of everything in your house that needs
S'The sooner that FEMA receives the advanced
damage claim, Simpson said,,the sooner that its
inspectors can rubber-stamp it

hands of people before the hurricane actually comes
ashore," he said, "while the outlet malls are still

A gentlemanly rant about rudeness
The other night I was at a social function
and saw a "gentleman" that I have known
for many years. As this gentleman passed
by, I pleasantly said hello, to which he
barely acknowledged my existence with a cursory
It just so happens that a week earlier I walked
into a downtown coffee shop and saw the same gen-
tleman sitting with a few other people I knew. I
waved a "hello" at the gentleman, who was looking
in my direction, but received nothing more than a
nton-acknowledgment, a sort of "I see you but I am
not going to acknowledge your existence."
You know, if I were a psychologist I would have
thought the man was being rude, but come to find
out he just doesn't seem to like my politics, and he
detests that I write about it, and therefore, in his
mind, he isn't rude. I guess this must be his way of
taking a moral stand against an immoral person.
I have also been confronted with almost rude
comments, veiled thinly in attempted humor. I have
even been called a communist for being a liberal,
and although it has been tempting to reply by calling
the conservative name-caller a fascist, I have
refrained. It would have been rude.
In most cases, though, many people who disagree
with my views somehow manage to remain civil.
Some of those people who disagree with my political
and social perspectives are very close friends who
support me in spite of our strong differences.
But rudeness goes far deeper that someone treat-

FROM THE Goldfish is on a rant!
GOLDFISH One of my all-time favorites
is the "walking in the street
rudeness." You've seen it, it comes in several vari-
First, there's the three or four abreast young atti-
tudinal "I dare you to hit me with your car" rude-
ness, which of course borders on either insanity or
stupidity. As you can imagine, I haven't seen any of
them on 1-95; it's usually on side streets, so they have
a 50-50 chance of jumping out of the way if the driver
decides to call their bluff.
Next there's the "I'm a tourist in your town, so I
don't have to be considerate of your need to get
somewhere anytime this week" rudeness. You've
seen it right? A group, or just one obliviot (no, not a
misspelling) crosses a street at one-third the speed
of a sprinting snail and then, inexplicably, stops in
the middle and stares at something or nothing -
before ambling on towards the next corner to foul up
even more traffic.
And last nor least is the new version of street
rudeness, although it does not actually involve walk-
ing. It's the cell phone driver. You know the amazing
non-multi-tasking obliviot who can't drive and chew
gum at the same time or even talk and push the
accelerator simultaneously? They just weave and
bob, slow down, then speed up, cut you off as you
try to avoid your fenders from mating, and spawning
lawyers' and doctors' bills. Now I am guilty of talking
on the cell phone while driving, but so far I have not
received any "Hawaiian peace signs" from anyone so
I must be doing part of it right, and therefore I know
others can do better.
OK, I admit that I am being a bit childish with
this rant, but in all seriousness, why are so many
people so rude? And it does seem that more and
more people are becoming ruder and ruder. The
gentleman that I referenced in the beginning was
not always rude to me, and he seemed like a polite
person but something either changed, or it was
just a facade. It is a shame that a once-dignified per-
son has succumbed to the epidemic that seems to be
washing over this great land of ours.
There is a big difference between communicating
a strong belief or opinion and being rude about it, or
being proud and not being rude about it, or being
right about something and not being rude about it.
But being arrogant or self-righteous and not
being rude about it is impossible, and that reality,
unfortunately, is lost upon many such people.

has interesting news to relate:
"So many times we are so busy

2004 was a busy year for our

Island. Cushman remains active
in her investment business. Like
so many who have retired to
Amelia Island, Britt continues to
"work" for those things in the
community that enhance its qual-
ity of life.
As we talked, I learned more
about the theater and its proud
history First chartered in 1981
its motto is "A.C.T. Puts the
Community on Stage" and it did
with its first production,
"Butterflies Are Free." The popu-
lar theater productions sell out
all performances. The theater
with its all-volunteer staff has put
on all kinds of entertainment.
You never know what an A.C.T.
theater season will offer. It can
be drama, comedy, a thriller,
mystery or the always popular ,
Membership in the early
years cost $10 and still does.
There are over 500 members.
It is clearly time for a bigger
Proud that they have been
good stewards, A.C.T. has kicked
off its capital campaign with a
reserve fund of $200,000 to start
of its fund-raising, but needs the

tribute to the building of a new

7,000 square feet and right next
to the present facility which will
be used for storage, work space
and offices. It will be located on

Britt emphasizes, "The new
building will be available for any-
one in the community and offer a
variety of opportunities from per-
formance to meetings and pre-
sentations. It is a facility long
needed on Amelia Island."
We talked about all the things
A.C.T. does. It brings people
downtown to enjoy our many
restaurants and attractions; it
takes its Peppermint Players out
to elementary age children
reaching 2,800 youngsters annu-
ally. You don't have to act to be
involved there is lots to do
from ushering to the design of
costumes and stage sets. Each
year a scholarship is awarded to
local graduating high school sen-
iors who have been active in the
Britt told me about an innova-
tive Kiddie Camp that offers
week-long programs for two age
groups 7-9 and 10-12. Each group
produces a short play; painting
sets, blocking, moving stuff
around, helping with lights and
sound, and acting.
"I want to go," I heard myself
say. He smiled and agreed it
might be fun to add a program
for slightly older but young at
heart theater students. Like
other "wannabes." I have found
myself in a dark theater wonder-
ing if I could ever be on stage.
Could I do it? Hmm.
There is no doubt in David
Britt's mind that the community
will step forward and support
one of its most valued treasures

Every time I walk in I look for the
restaurant owner sitting at the
front table. She offers a warm
greeting. The food served here is
not only delectable, it comes in
generous quantity. It is obvious
that many longtime residents eat
here and there is an ambiance
that makes one feel at home. As a
train rumbles by on a nearby
track you smile with the knowl-
edge that no matter where you go

Every pastor prays for the
insight and skills to create this
same atmosphere within the
church and yet it comes more
honestly as a gift of the Spirit.
Oh, yes, we set the tone through
prayer and hard labor but com-
munion with God and others is an
act of worship that comes as a
gift; and once "there" you know
you are at home. It is a place of
nurture and fellowship that feeds
our very souls.
The church (as the people of
God in the world) exists and
grows in places where the Holy
Spirit binds us together and
builds us up in love. I think Paul
challenges us to this kind of com-
munion in his letter to the church
in Philippi: "Ifyou have any
encouragement from being united
with Christ, if any comfort from
his love, if any fellowship with the
Spirit, if any tenderness and com-
passion, then make my joy com-
plete by being like-minded, having
the same love, being one in spirit
and purpose." (Philippians 2:1-2)
Even though the Spirit is a gift
from God, each community of
believers, and every church,
must work diligently at creating
an atmosphere of worship and fel-
lowship, Just as an excellent
restaurant hires and trains people
to greet and treat patrons, to pre-
pare and serve food, to be warm
and friendly in meeting the needs
of others so the church faces
the task of preparing its people to
serve. But it is the word of God,
the communion of the Holy Spirit
and the love of Jesus Christ we
Some will serve as pastors,
some as teachers, some as
prophets, some as evangelists,
and some will serve in ways
unseen, yet all are essential to the
function of the church. But it is
the Spirit which sanctifies our
efforts, binds us together and
builds us up in love. It is an expe-
rience finer than any meal in any
restaurant for it is an experience
of spiritual communion. A
If your soul hungers this day,
if you long for a place called
home, if you need to know the
love which passes all human com-
prehension then come to the
table of our Lord Jesus Christ. He
has prepared a place for you. Yes,
seek a church you can call home
for: "From him the whole body,
joined and held together by every
supporting ligament, grows and
builds itself up in love, as each
part does its work." (Ephesians

Termite season is here
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commission-
er Charles H. Bronson is warning
homeowners that this is the time
of year when termites beginning to
"swarm" or leave their colonies in
search for new nesting sites. Many
homeowners discover they have a.
termite problem when they find
termiteswarmers (winged, black
insects about 1/4 inch long) in
Termites can cause consumers
to lose their largest economic
asset their homes and are
responsible for over $700 million
in costs to consumers in Florida
each year for damage and control
costs. Termites are a fact of life in
Florida and people need to active-
ly protect their homes using a
licensed professional pest control
company to provide termite pro-.
This is the good time of year
for consumers and check their
contract with licensed pest con-
trol companies to make sure they
are current,", Bronson said.

People who do not have a cur-
rent termite protection contract
are urged to contact several pest
control companies and request
written estimates and a copy of
the contract they offer. Consumers
should not sign a contract until
they have compared at least three
companies. Pest control compa-
nies are required by law to obtain
a signed contract prior to treating
a home. Consumers with ques-
tions about contracts or the per-
formance of a pest control com-
pany can call 1-800-HELPFLA
The two main types of termites
that affect Florida consumers are
subterranean termites, which live
in soil and attack structures from
the ground up, and drywood ter-
mites, which can live in isolated
pieces of wood in a structure such
as attic rafters and can go unde-
tected until they cause extensive
damage. Licensed pest manage-
ment professionals have the
expertise to inspect and treat for
infestations of these termites and
provide protective measures for

a company is properly licensed

ry of a business.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 21.2005 AROUND TOWN News-Leader
ILDA Continued from 8A
arst has accepted a call to the ministry. God has
'en working on him for a long time. Ricky and his
fe, Star, work with our children and youth. He is
so a great asset to our Sunday School as superin-
ndent. He is not sure how this will all take place,
at God has a plan for him. I can remember when I
:cepted the call at North 14th Street Baptist I did
't know what God had planned for me or how I
as going to pay for it. I am always telling my con-
regation that God doesn't call the equipped, he
quips the call. :
"Our children and youth had a wonderful day on
an. 8. They went out into the world to do 'door
knocking Clint and Rosaline Hoffman, along with
icky and Star Hurst, assisted them. They were
nervous at first, but once they began, it was awe-
ome. The children of our world are the future. If
everyone would go out 'door knocking,' we could
-in many souls for Christ. 'Ye are my witnesses,
aith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen:
hat ye may know and believe me, and understand
hat I am he: before me there was no God formed,
either shall there be after me.' Isaiah 43:10.
"Our CMA group did a wonderful ride on the
'ame day. We always pray before we ride for God to
ead us to the people we need to witness to. We rode
nto Georgia where we met another CMA group and
fellowshipped with them. The end of our ride was at
a fish camp. At the camp they were having a good
pile time, if you know what I mean. You would not
believe the impact our presence and the CMA logo
on our shirts made. CMA goes into the world where
no one will minister to the lost. We are now trying to
raise money for the missionary trips that our mem-
bers take part in. Please pray that we can meet our
goal and minister to the lost world.
"We will be having Rachel Renee at our fifth
Sunday sing on Jan. 30. As always, we would like to
invite everyone to our service and enjoy a fellow-
ship of singing to the Lord. 'Sing praises to the
Lord, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the
people his doings.' Psalms 9:11. God bless."
Anthony Burger came to First Baptist Callahan
on Sunday. He is a Christian concert pianist who
currently plays with "The Gaithers," and has
appeared with Dr. Billy Graham and at The White
The Rev. Bill Yeldell, pastor of Mandarin Baptist
Church, was special guest speaker at "Faith
Banquet" on Jan. 12. Four discipleship classes
began Wednesday at 6:45 p.m. 1. Divorce Care -
The Road to Healing, Kid Care, led by Larry Tipton,
Room C201.2. Biblical Money Management (small
groups study), a 10-week intense study. Create a
plan to become debt free. It is led by Gerald and
Angie Smith in Room C102-104. 3. Beloved Disciple,
a 10-week Beth Moore study led by Cheryl
Raulerson in Room C101-103. 4. New Discipleship
Class "From Heaven's View" See your life from
God's View, led by Brother Dan Goodpastor.
Pastor of First Baptist, Callahan, is the Rev. Lynn
Hyatt. Rodney Coe, singles pastor and counselor;
the Rev. Cliff Ryan, administrator; the Rev. Mark
Stewart, minister of music; Todd Carr, youth minis-
ter; Tom Tyre, children's minister.
The Rev. Jeff Overton marked four great years as
senior pastor of First Baptist Church on Jan. 1. He
reflects from the Shepherd's Staff: "New beginnings
are wonderful! Each semester of school was a new
opportunity to perform well academically. New jobs
give us a new chance to succeed. The same is true
for New Year's. We all make resolutions during this
time. We think of all the things we are not going to
do and all the things we want to make sure to get
done. New years are great 'starting over' times.
However, there is a better opportunity for starting
over. There is a better place for second chances.
This place is at the feet of Jesus.
"When a person comes to Christ and gives their
life to Him, all the old passes away and all things
become new. He or she is a new creation. There are
many today who want to make that fresh start. They
want to make many resolutions. Let me encourage
all of you not to make resolutions. Instead, let me
encourage you to make a commitment; a commit-
ment to Jesus Christ and live out that commitment
walking with Him throughout 2005. It is not as
much about resolve as it is about surrender. Will
you surrender 2005 to Jesus Christ? I have a feeling
it would make this new year one of great adventure
"Let us convenant together to make 2005 a year
of commitment to our Lord. Commit to be in God's
house during times of worship, Sunday morning
and evening and Wednesday night. Commit to be in
Sunday School to learn more about His Word.
Commit to be a witness for the kingdom, a tither in
giving, a servant in missions. As we begin the new
year, let us do so, not with wishful resolutions, but
with dedicated commitment to Christ."
Completing the great staff with Pastor Jeff at
First Baptist are Mike Reed, associate pastor/music
minister; Rob Hudelson, associate pastor/youth
minister; church administrator, the Rev. David
Beckham; media director, the Rev. Chris Wynn.
Thank you, Lord, for sending this dedicated group
to First Baptist Church, Fernandina Beach.

Global Impact Celebration 2005 was held at
Springhill Baptist Church with Avery Willis. The
Rev. Jackie Hayes is pastor. A dynamic opportunity
for the whole church family! Children, youth, sin-
gles, adults and senior adults were involved in touch-
ing the lives of those who touch the world.
Our desire is that this will indeed be a celebration
of what our Lord has enabled the Springhill family to
accomplish as we attempt to fulfill the great commis-
sion by praying, going and giving more to accom-
plish our Lord's command.
A distinction exists between mission and mis-
sions. By mission, I mean the total redemptive pur-
pose of God to establish His Kingdom. Missions,
however, is the activity of God's people to proclaim
and demonstrate the Kingdom of God cross-cultural-
ly to the world. This course focuses on God's mis-
sion, not on our missions. God isn't interested in
merely giving you a missions experience, but in your
being on a mission with Him. This study does not
attempt to call you to be a missionary. It helps you
understand the heart of God and his mission that
the knowledge of His glory will cover the earth as
the waters cover the sea.
God reveals Himself to you so that you can adjust
your life to Him and join Him on His mission.
The first two Sundays in January at Memorial
United Methodist Church were all about new begin-
nings. On Jan. 2, in addition to our communion litur-
gy, we had an old-fashioned Covenant Renewal
Service. In 1747, John Wesley strongly urged the
Methodists to renew their covenant with God. His
first service of covenant renewal was held in 1755.
Since then, it has been a part of our tradition. At
each of our services in Word, Sacrament, and
liturgy we will consider our bond with God and
our neighbor and reaffirm our intention to walk in
the path of discipleship.
On Jan. 7, we had a service of Baptismal Renewal.
In the liturgy of the ancient church, this day has
been set aside to remember the baptism of Jesus. On
this day, those who wished to reaffirm their bap-
tismal vows were invited to come forward and sym-
bolically reenact their baptism by the pouring of '
water over their hands. Note: This is not a "rebap.
tism." We can only be baptized once. But it is a way
for us to reclaim our identity as baptized children of
God! All baptized Christians were invited to partici-

it was not unusual
to work 36 hours
straight while being
on call. Say you went into
work on Monday morning
and happened to be on call
that night. You would spend
Monday night at the hospital
and would be up all night
long. You filled your time run-
ning back and forth from the
trauma center, to the general
emergency room, to the pedi-
atric emergency room, then
up to the hospital wards to
check on patients there, then
back to the trauma center and
This typically would go all
night long, and sleep was not
part of the process. Morning
would finally arrive, and then
you would begin your
Tuesday work day, which
would carry you through
until about 5 p.m., and then
you would get to go home.
Driving home could be an
adventure, not necessarily
because of the traffic but
because you were so tired.
You would do things to keep
yourself sharp, such as turn-
ing on the radio, singing loud-
ly and leaving the windows
down to serve as an addition-
al stimulus. I would also avoid
the cruise control as an addi-
tional safety measure.
I did have one "close call."
I was driving home one
Saturday afternoon after hav-
ing been on call Friday night.
I was traveling east on Butl6r
Jacksonville Beach where I
lived at the time. As I was
cruising along, I drifted off to
sleep and my car veered off
the road. Fortunately, I
veered off the road at an exit
ramp and woke up in time to

Many have often worried
about the potential risks to
patients from treatment
received from tired residents,
and the number of hours that
residents work has always
been a point of contention
between those in charge of
the hospital training pro-
grams and the residents who
put in such long hours.
Some changes were made
about a year ago which limits
residents to an 80-hour work
week and no more than 24
straight hours on duty.
However, even that may not
be enough of a change.
This is the first study to
show an effect of tired doc-
tors outside the realm of hos-
pital care. Hospitals have to
take notice. In Illinois, a
woman who was severely dis-
abled in a car crash that was
caused by a post-call resident
is suing Rush University
Medical Center, stating that
the hospital is liable for allow-
ing a resident to work over 24
straight hours. The hospital
is, of course, denying this
claim, reporting that those
work hours are "standard"
and that the hospital is "not

tennis," tournament director John Arrix said.
The three-time Grand Slam champion and Olympic
gold medalist returns as the tournament's defending
champion. She captured the 2004 Bausch & Lomb
Championships crown by defeating Amelie Mauresmo
in straight sets. Davenport's 2004 win was her second
Amelia Island title. She won both the singles and
doubles trophies in 1997.
Davenport owns 45 singles and 35 doubles career
titles; only Billie Jean King, Chris Evert and Martina

Lady Pirates ground Eagles, stop Bucs
Fernandina Beach High School's varsity girls bas-
ketball team won its last two contests, beating
Episcopal 57-48 on Saturday and topping First Coast
56-41 on Tuesday.
Against the Episcopal Eagles, Kayla Mercer led
with 16 points. Laci Roberts and India Johnson were

The FBHS boys basketball team hosts Middleburg
tonight for homecoming. The junior varsity plays at 6
p.m. and the varsity tilt is at 7:30 p.m.
At halftime, 12 FBHS senior boys will make up the
winter homecoming court. The group includes J.D.
Phillips, Carson Rodeffer, Marc McKinnerny, Ben
Berteau, Austin Coleman, Marcus Chatman, Travis
Williamson, Jordan Poteat, Christian Benecke, Jeremy

The weather looks to he
picture perfect this
weekend for both off-
shore and backwater
fishing, quite a change from last
weekend's rainy and blustery
Offshore the water tempera-

snapper have moved further off-
shore, but good numbers of
excellent-eating black sea bass
should be biting at many of
these popular fish havens.
KBY reef is located some five
miles from the St. Marys inlet
and should provide excellent
black sea bass fishing where
broken culverts and concrete
docks offer a winter sanctuary
for sea bass.
Look for FA and Schultz's
Fish Market to also produce
excellent black sea bass fishing
this weekend while fishing right
on the bottom with fresh squid
or cut bait. FA reef is located
some 10 miles offshore and has
numerous small rock ledges and
a hard natural bottom. Schultz's
Fish Market is located only five
miles directly east of the south
end of Amelia Island and also
has numerous small rock ledges
and hard bottoms, a perfect
habitat for winter black sea bass.
Sea trout fishing continues to
improve with the falling water
temperatures. Nassau Sound
offers some of the best trout
fishing for this weekend. Low

winter's day to a school of winter sea trout.
tide will arrive at 12:45 p.m.,
which offers a great tide for fish-
ing both under and between the
two Nassau bridges. Float a live
shrimp from 5-10 feet deep
under a traditional trout float
Quarter-ounce led head jigs are
also working well during the
slower moving tides when
rigged with a curly plastic tail.
Saltwater fishermen are
reminded that the season for sea
trout will be closed during the
month of February. Current
creel limits for sea trout are five
per day measuring at least 15
inches with one of the five trout
measuring over 20 inches.
Fishing at the mouth of
Lofton Creek has also picked up
for spotted sea trout during the
falling tide, while further up the
creek, fishermen are catching a
mix bag of trout, redfish,
stripers and largemouth bass. A
good fishing tactic this weekend
includes trolling at a super slow
speed along the steep banks of
Lofton Creek with minnow-type
plugs or led head jigs.
Surf fishermen will need to
use fresh shrimp this coming
weekend to enjoy the recent run
of winter beach whiting. Good
catches of whiting have been
coming while fishing the falling
tide at the north side of the old
pipeline. Once again the sub-
merged pipeline is located right
in the middle of Amelia Island at
the beach with beach access and
Black drum fishing should be
good at the tip of the St. Marys
south jetty rocks during the last
of the falling and all of the
incoming tides. Calm weather at
one of Florida's fishiest inlets
should also produce good catch-
es of sheepshead, flounder, red
drum and sea trout.
The News-Leader encourages
local anglers to submit photo-
graphs of exceptional catches. We
will publish them in this space on
Friday. E-mail photos to .
them to P.O. Box 766, Fernan-

For the News-Leader
With a blue ribbon background in the chamber music
field, Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival Artistic
Director Christopher Rex has now added to his accolades
with his appointment in New York last weekend to the
board of directors of Chamber Music America.
Rex characterizes the news as
"very exciting. It's an honor to be
given such recognition, and to
k n o. iliat yoiir opoirions are val-
ued," helays. Burtaking little if
any credit for himself and his tal-
ents and abilities, the widely
acclaimed cellist attributes the
national recognition directly to the
success of the Amelia Island
Chamber Music Festival.
Rex "That's what gave them the
impetus to appoint me," he says,
"so this is also an honor for the peo-
ple of Amelia Island, the local board members, and the
volunteers who give so much and do so much. This is
something Amelia Island can be very proud of."
The national board members are deeply involved with
chamber music, and they are there to manage the direc-
tor and to try to promote chamber music, Rex says. He
will serve on a national committee, "but I just don't know
which one, yet," he says.
He has come a long way from taking up the cello at
age 8, completing a family string quartet in Winter Park,
his home town. After studying at the Curtis Institute of
Music in Philadelphia and at the Juilliard School in New
York, Rex was a member of the Philadelphia Orchestra

Sky Captain and the
World of Tomorrow
(PG, 107 m., 2004)
In a fantasy version of the
1930s, an evil and mysterious
scientist unleashes giant
mechanical men against
Manhattan, and the free-lance
hero Sky Captain flies to the
rescue. Jude Law stars as the
captain, and Gwyneth Paltrow
is the scoop-crazy news-
woman who comes along for
the ride. Most of the images
combine the actors with com-
puter-generated effects, creat-
ing a dreamy half-reality like
old paperback covers. Even
more fun than it sounds like.
(PG, 104 m., 2004)
Katie Holmes stars as the
daughter of a U.S. president,
who goes off to college and
doesn't realize she's living in
the plot of "Chasing Liberty,"
the Mandy Moore film from
earlier in 2004. She wants to
be a normal kid, but the movie
seems to have formed its
ideas of normality in 1948,
and it wheezes and labors to
arrive at obvious points in a
predictable plot before supply-
ing a lugubrious and unsatis-
fying ending. Rating: **

A school yard bully
becomes the target of a prac-
tical joke that gets out of con-
trol, in a movie that deepens
into a complex story of young
teenagers trying to make
moral choices, and about the
difficulty of standing up
against pressure from your
crowd. Josh Peck is the bully,
seen with a certain sympathy,
and Rory Culkin and Carly
Schroeder begin to feel sorry
for him, leading to an ending
of surprising thoughtfulness.
Head in the Clouds
(R, 132 m., 2004)
Charlize Theron follows the
great "Monster" with a war-
overwrought but fun. An
Oxford undergraduate named
Guy (Stuart Townsend)
becomes fascinated by her
legendary and outrageous
behavior, and their lives cross
until a fateful meeting in
wartime Pars, where he sees
that she has become the mis-
tress of a Nazi. Penelope
Cruz plays her roommate and
sometime lover, in a movie
that plays like a checklist of all
the adventures that could pos-
sibly befall the heroine.
(PG-13, 89 m., 2004)
Julianne Moore plays a
mother who mourns her dead
son, only to be told by every-
body she trusts that she never
had a son, and only imagines
she did. How can this be? I
can think of several possibili-
ties, all of them more intrigu-
ing than the preposterous plot,
which generates considerable
sympathy through Moore's
performance and then dissi-
pates it in ridiculous develop-
ments, obvious paradoxes
and a peculiarly unsatisfying
third act. Rating: **

not so much a remake as a riff
on an old familiar plot The
fort is surrounded, and the
defenders have to fight off the
attackers and deal with possi-
ble traitors in their midst
Howard Hawks did ver-
sions of this so often that after
John Wayne starred for him in
"Rio Bravo" (1959) and "El
Dorado" (1966), he told
Wayne he was sending over a
script for "Rio Lobo," and
Wayne told him, "I'll make it,
but I don't need to read it.
We've already made it twice."
John Carpenter's 1976 film,
made just before his famous
"Halloween," added some
touches from George
Romero's "Night of the Living
Dead" and moved the action
from a threatened sheriff's
office in the Old West to a
threatened police station in
the inner city. Now French
director Jean-Francois Richet
takes essentially the same
material and makes it work
with strong performances and
a couple of new twists.
Precinct 13, in this version,
is scheduled to close forever
at midnight. Burnt-out desk
sergeant Jake Roenick (Ethan
Hawke), still traumatized by
the death of two partners, is
on the graveyard shift with
old-timer Jasper O'Shea

revelation fraught with omens
announces he will soon retire.

There are, however, a few

'Merchant of Venice
comessto big screen
Universal Press Syndicate
Thinking to read "The Merchant
of Venice" one more time, I took
down the volume of Shakespeare's
tragedies, only to be reminded that
this dark and troubling play is classi-
fied with his comedies. Its two
natures come from different
spheres; sunny scenes of romance
alternate with sadness, desperation
Michael Radford's new produc-
tion is, incredibly, the first theatrical
film of the play in the sound era.
There were several silent versions,
and it has been done for television,
but among the most important titles
in Shakespeare's canon this is the
play that has been sidestepped by
not only Hollywood but every film
industry in the world. The reason is
plain to see: Shylock, the money-
lender who demands repayment
with a pound of flesh, is an anti-
Semitic caricature; filmmakers turn
away and chose more palatable
Yet Shylock is an intense, pas-
sionate character in a great play, and
Radford's film does him justice.
Although Shylock embodies anti-
Semitic stereotypes widely held in
Shakespeare's time, he is not a one-
dimensional creature but embodies,
like all of Shakespeare's great cre-
ations, a humanity that transcends
the sport of his making. Radford's
Shylock, played with a rasping inten-
sity by Al Pacino, is not softened or
apologized for that would deny
the reality of the play but he is
SEEN as a man not without his rea-
The film opens by visualizing an
event referred to only in dialogue in
the original: We see the merchant
Antonio (Jeremy Irons) spit at
Shylock on the Rialto bridge, as part
of a demonstration against the Jews
who are both needed and hated in
Venice needed, because without
moneylenders the city's economy
cannot function, and hated, because
Christians must therefore do busi-
ness with the same people they have
long executed a blood libel against.
That Antonio spits at Shylock,
asks him for a loan of 3,000 ducats
and boldly tells him he would spit at
him again is, in modern terms, ask-
ing for it. That Shylock loans him the
money against the guarantee of a
pound of flesh is not simply a cruel-
ty, but has a certain reason;
Shakespeare's dialogue makes it
clear that Shylock proudly declines
to accept any monetary interest from
Antonio and has every reason to
think Antonio can repay the loan,
which means that Shylock will have
borrowed the money at cost to him-
self and loaned it to Antonio for free.
That Antonio comes within a
whisper of losing his flesh and his

he quickly agreed to, because he
also thouglit he would escape with-
out paying interest Shakespeare's
great courtroom scene, in which the
Doge must decide between the
claims of Shylock and the life of
Antonio, is undercut by the farce of
the cross-dressing Portia's last-sec-
ond appeal; on the merits of the case,
Shylock should win.
One of the strengths of the film is
its clarity. A written prologue
informs us of the conditions of
Jewish life in Venice in 1586; Jews
were forced to live in a confined area
that gave the word "ghetto" to the
world, were forbidden to move
through the city after dark (although
they seem to do a lot of that in the
film), and were tolerated because
Christians were forbidden to lend
money at interest, and somebody
The plot is driven from the comic
side by the desire of Bassanio
(Joseph Fiennes) to wed the fair
Portia (Lynn Collins). She has been
left by her father's will in the position
of a game show prize; her suitors are
shown chests of gold, silver and
lead, and made to choose one; inside
the lucky chest is the token of their
prize. Elementary gamesmanship
cries out "Lead! Choose the lead!"
but one royal hopeful after another
goes for the glitter, and the impover-
ished Bassanio still has a chance.
He will need money to finance his
courtship, and turns to his friend
Antonio. The play famously opens
with Antonio's melancholy ("I know
not why I am so sad'"). The reason
for this is implied by Shakespeare
and made clear by Radford: Antonio
is in love with Bassanio, and in effect
is being asked for a loan to finance
his own romantic disappointment
The film is wonderful to look at,
saturated in Renaissance colors and
shadows, filmed in Venice, which is
the only location that is also a set It
has greatness in moments, and is
denied greatness overall only
because it is such a peculiar con-
struction; watching it is like channel-
surfing between a teen romance and
a dark abysm of loss and grief.
