School survey:



Fewer drink


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
Eight percent of Nassau County
middle school students told sur-
veyors they drank alcohol in the
last 30 days.
While that fact alone may seem
like bad news to parents of the
county's 11- to 13-year-olds, the
good news is the percentage is
down from the 10 percent of young-
sters the same age who reported
alcohol use in 2002.
Marie Rogers, middle school


drug and violence prevention coor-
dinator, presented survey results
Thursday to the Nassau County
School Board. She also presented
a survey revealing an improving
student attitude toward violence.
"This is in middle school,"
board member Janet Adkins com-
mented. "Roughly 8 1/2 percent
of our middle school students use
alcohol. (If) you surveyed our high
school students, what would that
number be?"

A loved one slips away


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Imagine the pain of seeing
the most beloved person in
your life slip into a world
apart, unable to communi-
cate, recognize you, control
emotions or take care of basic
physical needs.
Rochelle Kober of
Fernandina Beach understands
that pain all too well, for her hus-
band, Pat, was diagnosed with
Alzheimer's disease nine years
ago when he was 62.
Briefly, Alzheimer's is a par-
ticular disease, not a normal
stage of aging. It can occur in
people as young as the late 30s.
if there is a genetic root.
However, it usually manifests
itself.in those over 65.'
Other types of dementia
include Lewy Body Dementia
and vascular dementia.
Parkinson's disease can share
some of the same symptoms. At
times another illness can be mis-
taken for Alzheimer's, and an
early and correct diagnosis is
important There are medica-
tions and treatments that can
modify symptoms and slow the
progress of dementia, although
there is no cure.
Kobel cared for her husband
at home until recently, when the
task became more than she
could handle. "My life shrunk to
24-7 caregiving, and. my children
were afraid that they were going
to lose both of us," she says.
Kober tried to find some
relief by hiring a sitter/caregiv-
er. She contacted an agency and
also placed an ad in a newspaper.
None of those who responded
worked out
"Then I found an angel in
response to an ad placed in St.
Michael's Church bulletin. She
was a lifesaver, and I can't
express my gratitude enough for
this wonderful, caring woman,"
said Kober.
Finally, though, the time
came when home care was not
enough, and because there was
no room in local facilities, Pat
was placed in a nursing facility
in Jacksonville.
As Kober discovered, help for
the families of Alzheimer's dis-
ease patients is quite limited.

ALICE WALSH/NEWS-LEADER
Ann Smith, a registered nurse and director of Osprey Village
Assisted Living Center, left, facilitates support groups at the
center for persons with Alzheimer's disease and their care-
givers with the assistance of Renee Stoffel, director of activi-
ties. The support groups are open to all who wish to attend.


Few well-trained caregivers are
available and the cost ($15-$25
an hour) is high enough to be
prohibitive for some families.
When the disease progresses to
the need for a full-time care facil-
ity, the financial problems
increase dramatically.
"If you can't private pay, you
are really in trouble. because the
waiting list for Medicaid patients
is very long," says Kober. Also,'
in order to qualify for Medicaid,


family income and savings must
meet government limitations,
which are quite low and restric-
tive.
Also, not every long-term
care facility has a unit designed
for the special needs of
Alzheimer's patients. Usually
these victims do not require hos-
pitalization or constant medical
care unless there are other
health needs. However, because
they may become confused and


disoriented they may wander,
and require an environment with
a secure perimeter along with
assistance in dressing, feeding,
personal hygiene and medica-
tions. Also, because of frustra-
tion and lack of emotional con-
trol, some patients (but not all)
become angry and violent.
Three assisted living facilities
on Amelia Island offer this type
of care: Amelia Trace, accessed
off Sadler Road, Osprey Village
Assisted Living just off Burney
Road, and The Jane Adams
House on Nectarine Street. Of
these three, the Jane Adams
House is the only one that
accepts Medicaid patients. This
processing service is offered by
case managers at the Council On
Aging on -18th.Sreet.in...
Fernandina Beach.
Amelia Trace has designated
11 of its 56 beds for dementia
patients, including those with
Alzheimer's, in a specialized
unit That unit is full at the pres-
ent, with five people on the wait-
ing list Osprey Village does
have openings as this story is
written.
Full-time care at assisted liv-
ing facilities is expensive, espe-
cially for patients of dementia
that require a secured unit It
ranges from $2,800 to $3,600 per
month on Amelia Island.
According to the Alzheimer's
Association, the average cost for
nursing home care is $42,000
annually. However, more than 7
of 10 people with Alzheimer's
disease live at home with 75 per-
cent of the home care provided
by family and friends. The
remainder is paid care costing
an average of $12,500 per year
- paid for out-of-pocket by the
family.
But when there is only one
main caregiver, the strain on that
person becomes so stressful that
often the caregiver's own health
breaks and they die before their
charge.
Respite care, offered by the
assisted living facilities, is one
option but still expensive at
$175 per day. Still, it offers peace
of mind to the fatigued caregiver
to know that the patient is in
good hands, and provides a

Marsh Lakes condos approved


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Three four-story condomini-
um buildings and retail shops have
been approved for a parcel off AlA
between the entrance of the
Marsh Lakes subdivision and west.
bank of the Amelia River.
Nassau County Commission-
ers approved the condo project
Jan. 24, reversing their rejection of
the same proposed development
Aug. 3.
But a mediated legal settlement


with owner Frank D'Anna calls for
rezoning of the property to multi-
family housing. It was previously
zoned for a restaurant and com-
mercial-space.
New commissioners Tom
Branan and Jim B. Higginbotham
joined Floyd Vanzant in approv-
ing the rezoning. Commissioners

Marshall were opposed.
In August, Marshall and then
Commissioner Vickie Samus
voted against the proposal, while
Vanzant and then Commissioner
Nick Deonas voted to approve it.
Acree left that meeting early and
did not cast a vote.
The three buildings, 45 feet
high including a floor for parking,
are each to house 12 units for a
total of 36 condos. The plan would
allow 11,000 square feet of retail
space.
Final site plans will be brought


back to the commission for
approval.
The project's original develop-
er objected to commission
approval of the settlement. The
John Stokes Co. no longer has a
contract with D'Anna to develop
the land.
The commission heard from
Jim Shroads, Stokes' attorney, but
County Attorney Michael Mullin
told commissioners, "I don't think
you should be involved between
the two parties" in their dispute.

Murder



charge



lodged


Relative held

in 2003 death

KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
Nearly a year and a half after
Georgette Stewart was found beat-
en to death in her Amelia Island
home, a family
member has
been arrested
and charged with
murder.
Stewart's
mother, Joyce
"Coes, said she is
glad that her fam- Stewart
ily's wait for an
arrest is over.
"It's a bad dream, a nightmare,"
Coes said. "I still can't comprehend
what we're going through. "It's so
senseless. So cold-blooded and
senseless. We're still in shock."
Henry Reginald Stewart, 42, of
1534 Stewart St., Fernandina
Beach, was arrested Jan. 26 and
charged with the September 2003
murder of his former sister-in-law,
who lived on the same street.
"I feel better with him off the
street," Coes added. "I didn't
believe in the death penalty, but I
do now."

Seeking


'fair' fee


to build



schools

SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
Fair and equitable.
Those two words were bandied
about by all sides at a packed meet-
ing to discuss the results of a
school impact fee study Thursday.
"I think it is something that we
need to do and we do want to do it
in a fair and equitable manner,"
said schools Superintendent John
Ruis.
"We don't object to paying our
fair share," said developer Dennis
Jasinsky. "The key word is fair."
School Board Vice Chair Gail
Cook said she has stressed from
the start that they must arrive at a
funding solution for school con-
struction that is "fair and equitable."
But judging from comments at
the meeting attended by county
commissioners and staff, school
board members and staff, real
estate interests, builders and devel-
opers, what is fair and equitable to
one may not be to another.
"I'm just a simple guy and I look
at the numbers in a simple way,"
said Daniel Davis of the Northeast
Florida Builders Association before
launching an attack on the study's
data.
Based on his calculations, the
school district will have at least a
$60 million surplus as the student
population increases over the
study's 30-year forecast, Davis said.
"I'm not sure there's a necessi-
ty for an impact fee," he said. "You
end up with no need."

sultant that conducted the $35,000

These tax

changes

could save

you money

ALICE WALSH
News- Leader

Some recent changes are
effective for the 2004 tax year.
If these items affect you, be
sure to get the details when
you collect information for
your tax return.
Child tax credit -
Taxpayers with a credit amount
more than their tax could get a
refund of the difference, up to
10 percent of the amount by
which their 2004 taxable
earned income exceeds
$10,750. This percentage was
raised to 15 percent for 2004,
meaning a larger refund for
many of these taxpayers.
Sales tax deduction -
Taxpayers who itemize deduc-
tions will have a choice of
claiming a state and local tax
deduction for either sales or
income taxes on their 2004 and
2005 returns. The IRS will pro-
vide optional tables for use in
determining the deduction
amount relieving taxpayers of
the need to save receipts
throughout the year. Sales
taxes paid on motor vehicles
and boats may be added to the
table amount, but only up to
the amount paid at the general
sales tax rate. Taxpayers will
check a box on Schedule A,
Itemized Deductions, to indi-
cate whether their deduction is
for sales or income taxes.
Support for military fami-
lies More low-income mili-
tary families will qualify for the
powerful earned-income credit
and child tax credit because
they can count combat pay as
"earned income" in 2004 and
2005.
"Clean-fuel" car credit:
Taxpayers who buy a hybrid
car in 2004 or 2005 can still
qualify for a $2,000 deduction.
This deduction was scheduled
to drop to $1,500 this year.
Deduction for Discrimi-
nation Suit Costs A new
deduction is available for those
who pay attorney's fees and
court costs in connection with
discrimination suits. Taxpayers
can take the new deduction
whether they itemize or not.
Only costs paid after Oct. 22,
2004, qualify.
Donating a car to charity
Quite a few people have
hopped on this new deduction
in the last few years, and some
charitable organizations are
promoting it.
But Congress has clamped
down on donors who give a
clunker to charity, then inflate
its value on their tax return to
get a larger tax deduction.
Through Dec. 31, donors may
deduct cars worth $500 to
$5,000, based on the fair mar-
ket value according to the
Kelley Blue Book. Starting Jan.
1, the deduction generally will
be determined by the amount
the charity receives when it
sells the car.
Two changes for 2005 can
affect you now, because they
involve savings:
IRA's You can con-
tribute up to $4,000 to a tradi-
tional or Roth IRA up until
April 17, 2006, or $4,500 if you
are age 50 or older. Set aside
$66.66 a week (or $75 a week
for those over 50) and hit the
max by next April.
Your 401(k) -The maxi-
mum contribution jumped to
$14,000, or $18,000 for people
50 and older.
Of course, those maximums
don't mean a great deal to the
majority of working people,
whose incomes don't allow for
this much in annual savings.
However, do try to save what
you can in one of these tax-
sheltered investments.

In general, the signs and
symptoms of Alzheimer's
disease include the follow-
ing:
1. Recent memory loss that
affects job skills
2. Difficulty performing
familiar tasks
3. Frequent problems with
finding the right words
4. Disorientation
5. Poor or decreased
judgment
6. Problems with abstract
thinking
7. Misplacing things
8. Changes in mood or
behavior
9. Changes in personality
10. Loss of initiative
Keep in mind that not
everyone with Alzheimer's
disease has all of these
signs, and not all have to
occur in order for
Alzheimer's to be present.

Smith, a registered nurse and
director of assisted living at that
facility. Two support groups, one
for the patients and one for the
caregivers, are held the third
Thursday of the month from 1:30-


2:30 p.m.
"I focus on communication
skills, because that's most impor-
tant to patients and caregivers. I
try to have guest speakers on top-
ics that the groups suggest, but
what we do best is sit around and
talk." Smith conducts the care-
givers' group, while Renee Stoffel,
activity director, leads the
Alzheimer's group; this opportu-
nity to communicate with others
who share the same problems has
filled a definite need of both,
breaking through the barrier of
isolation felt by both the patients
and their caregivers. Said Stoffel,
"It makes the patients feel
good to be here and that they are
part of the solution to the prob-
lem."
Adds Smith, "They are not the
disease. They are the individuals
they always were, with a disease.
They must be thought of as per-
sons with the same need for
respect and love as anyone else."
The meetings are open to all
who suffer from Alzheimer's and
their caregivers and families who
would like to attend. Call Osprey

MURDER Continued from 1A
ered Georgette Stewart's body
when he went to her home to
check on her after she failed to
show up for work at Blue
Cross/Blue Shield in Jacksonville.
"They called me Sept. 11 (2003)
and they said she hadn't gone to
work," Coes said. "I knew she
loved that job she had for 17 years.
They figured she had been in an
accident."
Ernest Coes found his 45-year-
old stepdaughter lying face down
on the floor of her single-wide trail-
er at 1522 Stewart Ave. She had
been beaten to death with a ham-
mer and then stabbed, investiga-
tors said.
"It was a violent homicide and
there were multiple injuries," said
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves. "The
evidence has been produced by
the State Attorney's Office and
(Assistant State Attorney Granville
C. "Doc" Burgess) issued a war-
rant. Our office was working right
along with them. Doc told me a
couple of weeks ago they were
going to move forward with this."
Coes said Georgette Stewart
had an open-door policy until
steaks disappeared from her refrig-
erator and then a -pressure wash-
er vanished from her property. She


had locked her
trailer and con-
fronted Henry
Stewart about
the thefts, Coes
said.
"And as many
people as she did
Stewart favors for ."
Coes said. "She
helped people
with their tax return, all they had
to do was ask. She was good-heart-
ed and hard-working. She had a lot
of merit certificates. Everything
she had was paid for. She was out-
standing. And she raised two chil-
dren by herself."
Georgette Stewart's daughter,
Shonda Holmes of Deerfield, and
other family members had offered
$5,000 for information leading to
the arrest of her killer or killers.
Holmes said that she, too, was
relieved to hear of an arrest in the
case, but that she hadn't felt that
way right away.
"When I first heard, I was
caught up in the emotion," Holmes
said. "I was so distraught. Why
would he do such a thing? He was
next door when I was living there.
It was hard. But I know it's a little
bit of closure. I am relieved that
we have a suspect."
Since the day of the killing,


Henry Stewart had been arrested
for burglary, but evidence was not
sufficient to arrest him for mur-
der, said Seagraves.
"I don't think at that time there
was enough to go forward,"
Seagraves said. "There was still
evidence being processed then."
It wasn't the first time tragedy
had struck Georgette Stewart's
family. Her son, Gerode Holmes,
22, a student at Edward Waters
College, was shot and killed in a
robbery in Jacksonville on Sept.
15, 2002.
Her family says now they know
the next chapter will be a trial.
They are bracing themselves to
hear the incidents of Sept 11, 2003,
retold for a jury's consideration.
'To take her life like that... that
really bothers me," Holmes said.
"I'm relieved, but my family was
really enraged and upset. I don't
know what could have made him
feel that way about her. She just
didn't have the lifestyle for some-
thing like this to happen to her."
"I'm really relieved, but I know
it's just the beginning," Coes said.
"It's hard to deal with murder. But
I pray to God every day. I pray for
strength. And I know I am going to
see Georgette again. That helps a
lot."

Consumer confidence up


University of Florida
Florida's consumer confi-
dence rose in January, erasing
the previous month's decline,
University of Florida economists
report.
The overall index edged up
from 91 to 92, just one point
below the 93 recorded for
September, October and
November.
The biggest increases came
in three components: perceptions
of future personal finances, per-
ceptions of short-term business
conditions and perceptions of
whether it is a good time to buy
big-ticket items.
Those increases were bal-
anced by a decline in perceptions
of personal finances now com-
pared with a year ago.
Perceptions of long-term busi-
ness conditions remained
unchanged.
"It appears that the consumer
confidence reading for December
was t6 some extent an aberra-
tion,,although there still appears
to have been a very substantial
drop in perceptions of future
finances for Florida seniors," said
Chris McCarty, director of the

survey research center at UF's
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research, where the
research was conducted.
Retail sales picked up at the
end of the holiday shopping sea-
son, and there are indications
that sales of gift cards were
robust, McCarty said. Gift cards
are counted as sales only after
being redeemed, he said.
Job data, among the most
closely followed economic
indicators, also has shown
growth.
Consumer confidence
remains relatively high, but there
appears to be an absence of
trends during the past two
months,. McCarty said.
"With the election over, the
president establishing his agen-
da for the second term and other
economic forces, such as the
Federal Reserve raising interest
rates, Floridians are not sure
which way the economy is
going," he said. "In the coming
months we should pay special
attention to the responses among
seniors and low-income house-,
holds. These are the groups that'
will be most affected by recent
economic news."

OPEN LETTER TO THE



CRAWFORD INSURANCE

AGENCY:


Over the past 20 years, the Crawford Insurance Agency has

DAVE CABELL


striven to


I am pleased t6 announce that I am retiring from the insurance busi-
ness and the Dave Cabell Nationwide Insurance Agency will be taking
over your account. The Cabell Agency has earned the reputation for
professionalism due to the special attention given to the insurance
needs of their clients. This was important to me when making the
decision to sell my agency to The Dave Cabell Agency. ,

The Nationwide Insurance Company was founded in 1926 as "The
Farm Bureau Mutual Automobile Insurance Company." The company
was organized to provide Ohio farmers with low-cost insurance. They
soon were invited to offer our low cost insurance in other states. The
organization expanded, developed and evolved as it pursued that goal.
In 1955 the name was changed to "Nationwide", which more accurate-
ly reflected its desire to serve customers across the country.

The local Nationwide agency has been serving Nassau County since
1990. With 2 offices in Fernandina Beach and another in Yulee, the
Cabell Agency will be able to service all of your insurance needs, no
matter where you live.

Your patronage has been, and continues to be, extremely important to
Becky, myself and to Dave Cabell. We will do everything we can to
make this a smooth transition for you. In fact, you need do nothing!
However, we invite you to contact us at any time if you have any ques-
tions regarding your insurance needs. You will be pleased to know that
Becky, Niki and Shari will continue to service your account.


Sincerely,

Islandwide tree ordinance possible


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
City and county commission-
ers have agreed to consider a tree
ordinance covering all of Amelia
Island.
The city now has a stricter tree
law than the county's.
"I get a lot of complaints about
people clearcutting property and
then annexing into the city," City
Commissioner Ken Walker told
Nassau County and Fernandina
Beach commissioners, meeting
Jan. 26 as the Joint Local Planning
Agency.
They agreed to appoint a five-
member committee to report back
in three months with a plan for cre-
ating an islandwide tree law.
Walker and County Commis-


sioner Jim B.
Higginbotham
are members,
plus one staff
member from
the city and one
from the county.
Those four will
Walker pick the fifth
member.
Both Higgin-
botham and City Commissioner
John Crow said there are prob-
lems with current ordinances.
"The tree ordinance that we
have does not allow for taking
dead trees out... diseased trees
out," without replacing them, Crow
said.
"We need to move this thing
up in a hurry," said Higginbotham,
a former city public works director.


There also have been com-
plaints before the city commission
about uneven enforcement of tree
ordinances the clearcutting for
the Amelia Green subdivision on
, Will Hardee Road being a prime
example.
Critics have complained that as
many as 1,000 trees may have been
removed there inappropriately and
there has not been replacement, as
required by law.
In other cases last year,
trees were cleared along Eighth
Street or Sadler Road for various
developments in the county that
ultimately were annexed into
the city.
The new First Baptist Church
site on Eighth Street is an example
of a project that could not have
cleared as many trees under the


city ordinance.
In other cases, though, previ-
ously approved developments are
able to cut more trees because they
were grandfathered before the
county law was approved.
"I get calls almost every day
about some of the stuff Summer
Beach is doing," County
Administrator Mike Mahaney told
commissioners, but its plan was
approved before the tree ordi-
nance. "That horse left the barn a
long time before Mike Mahaney
got here."
In both the city and the
unincorporated portion of Amelia
Island, tree laws limit the number
and type of trees that can be cut
and provide for replacement of
trees that are cut

LIME STREET OPEN


The county's long
awaited resurfacing
and other improve-
ments to lime Street
between 14th Street
and Citrona Drive
has been completed.
The project was
delayed about two
years while the coun-
ty sought to pur-
chase right of way,
leaving motorists to
endure a bumpy
drive to the hospital
and police station.

Pot calling kettle


black? Developers


object to condos


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
put off last week a decision on a
First Coast Highway condo pro-
posal after hearing complaints from
two neighbors developers them-
selves whose projects also some-
times draw the ire of neighbors.
Dennis Jasinsky and Bruce
Jasinsky, who own separate prop-
erties nearby, opposed a rezoning
from single-family residential to
general residential, which allows
condos, on eight acres between
Quattlefield Lane and Scott Road
near the Waterwheel Gallery.
"One of those 35-feet buildings
will be within 30 feet of my proper-
ty line," said Dennis Jasinsky, who
owns a home on Old Block Road.
"What is good for the goose is
certainly good for the gander," com-
missioners were told by Lilian
Wilder of Nassauville, who has
objected to Jasinsky subdivision
plans in her area previously.
"Now they're hollering because
somebody's building up next to
them."
The plan by David and Iris
Jacobsen, William J. Lohman Jr.
and Donald E. Lohman/Gillette &
Associates Inc. calls for building
four three-story condos each con-
taining six units. The 24 condos
would be clustered on the back part
of the parcel, and is the same num-
iher of housing units, 24 single-fam-
il homes, that would be allowed
tinder current zoning.

Both Dennis and Bruce Jasinsky
said the condominiums would be
"inappropriate" in a single-family
neighborhood.
'"There are established single-
family residences on either side of
this property," Bruce Jasinsky said.
"A 20,000-square-foot, three-
story building 20 feet from a single-
family home?... My 30 years in the
real estate business tells me that
will affect the welfare of those sur-
rounding property owners," by
reducing their property values,
Bruce Jasinsky said.
He owns property north of the
proposed condos that is zoned sin-
gle-family residential.
'This proposed rezoning fits in
very logically with the surround-
ing development," said attorney
Wesley Poole, representing the
Lohman property owners.
He said by clustering the condo
buildings on the back of the prop-
erty, the development "will save the
pecan trees up toward the road."
And, Poole said, in an apparent
reference to recently built condos
along that stretch of AlA, "It will not
obstruct the view of the marsh to
those who pass by."
Numerous condos have been
built recently or are planned on
marshfront property along the
Amelia River on ALA south of
Buccaneer Trail.
Commissioners agreed to post-
pone their decision on the Lohman
proposal until Feb. 14 to consider
the.objections.

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/SusAN GOSSETT/FERNANDINA BEACH


Teachers love their profession, not


T he News-Leader published an article
("Schools pay 122 workers $50,000 plus,"
Jan. 19) followed by a letter to the editor
('Teacher salaries," Jan. 26) that ques-
tioned whether or not teachers, particularly those
earning $50,000 and more, are proficient enough in
their specific fields to "be able to pass standardized
tests similar to those that their students must take."
Let us address this question.
The letter states that teachers are "subject only
to the completion of advanced degrees and addition-
al certifications in order to receive the munificent
salary of $50,000 per year." Consider the diligence
involved in each. Advanced degrees require several
years of continued college classes above the bache-
lor's level, which is a minimum requirement for
obtaining a teaching certificate. Master's, special-
ist's and doctorate degrees demand two or more
years of full-time study or many more if attending
classes part-time while continuing to fulfill the daily
responsibilities of a teaching position. The addition-
al salary award for completion of these advanced
degrees is not realized for a minimum of four years,
as these first four years' funds are absorbed by the
cost of tuition. The addition of certification areas to
a teaching certificate requires preparing for and
successfully passing a thorough standardized test in
the specific content area. Once the new certification
area is added, 120 hours of additional staff develop-
ment and training are required to renew the area
every five years. These hours are completed after


school hours, evenings, week-
ends and during summers.
"" Teacher salaries, as quoted
in the News-Leader article, are
S--. M a computed by length of service,
[ number and type of advanced
H* college degrees, completion of
certification programs and per-
/ formance pay. With each addi-
I tional year of service a teacher
Gossett earns a small increase in pay, on
average less than 1 percent.
Advanced college degrees offer
an additional $2,200 to $3,000 per year. The addition
of certification areas does not raise salary, however
successful completion of the National Board
Certification process, because of its intense ongoing
requirements, allows for an increase. (There are
many proud national board certified teachers who
would be happy to expound on the rigors of this
daunting task for those interested in knowing
more.) Performance pay requires a teacher to meet
a minimum standard of 75 percent of their students
scoring a level 3 or better on both the reading and
math sections of the FCAT,test regardless of the
teacher's specific subject area. In addition, the
teacher must have two consecutive exemplary per-
formance evaluations and complete additional staff
development training in both reading and math.
Accomplishing this awards a 1 percent bonus.
The News-Leader also indicates correctly that


Add to teachers mastery of
curriculum content huge hearts filled
with love for their profession and
their students. They must be doing it
for a reason other than money.


supplemental income is given for supervising
extracurricular activities. The words "many, but not
all" extracurricular activities are more accurate.
Much of the additional time many teachers give to
their profession is voluntary. Thankfully the athletic
coaches earn stipends, though they certainly cannot
compare to the vast number of hours involved in
this tremendous responsibility.
The letter writer wonders how many of the 52
teachers would be able to pass standardized tests,
similar to those the students must take, to prove
that they have mastered their material and are wor-
thy of the $50,000 for 10 months' work. Currently,
the Nassau County School Board employs 646
teachers. Fifty-two of them, according to the News-
Leader article, earn S50,06)0 or more. including sup-
plemental pay. Is 8 percent too many for this catego-
ry? In actuality, without supplemental pay, the
average salary is $39,316.94. Does it not make sense
that these teachers take ron th addediresponsibility


WEDNESDAY. FEBRUARY 2,2005/NEWS-LEADER


their pay

for the additional stipends? These 646 teachers are
responsible for the education, and ultimately the
future, of 10,474 Nassau County children. What an
awesome task. Is the question, "Are these profes-
sionals intelligent and skilled enough to accomplish
it?" An emphatic "YES" and add to their mastery of
curriculum content area huge hearts filled with love
for their profession and their students. They must
be doing it for a reason other than money. To fur-
ther strengthen point, consider the salaries of
other degree and certified professionals such as
doctors, lawyers, CPAs, engineers and architects at
5, 10, and 15 years of service. Would they be earn-
ing $33,650, $39,350 and $45,000 respectively?
Probably not. But a teacher would.
I am a teacher with 13 years' experience and
nearly 600 past and current Nassau County stu-
dents. No, you did not see my name on the list in
the News-Leader, nor would you find me within the
list of 52 teachers that earn $50,000 or more. At the
current salary schedule I will need to teach 18 more
years to make the list. Like many of my qualified
colleagues, I am a teacher because I love the profes-
sion and the students. I invite the letter writer to vol-
unteer or observe in a Nassau County classroom. I
believe you will then have a better understanding of
our competencies and our dedication to this vital
profession.
Susan Gossett, a seventh-grade math teacher at
Fernandina Beach Middle School, is a Teacher of the
Year, 2004-5, in Nassau County.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


In whose interest?
Re: Steve Nicklas' Jan. 26 arti-
cle, "Plantation eyes Royal Amelia,
Crane Island," here are three ques-
tions for our city commissioners:
1) In regard to the proposed
purchase of Royal Amelia by the
privately-owned Amelia Island
Plantation, would this mean that
citizens of Fernandina Beach who
currently enjoy this semi-private
course built on city land would no
longer be allowed to play the golf
course?
2) Or, if local golfers who are
not members of the Amelia Island
Club are given permission to play,
will it be at much higher rates and
only after Amelia Island Club mem-
bers have selected their preferen-
tial tee times?
3) Is this arrangement really
in the best interests of the taxpay-
ing citizens of Fernandina Beach?
Also, on another subject, why is
jiattl ~t ,wpr ,4retph of road in,
~he cty (,on Suth 14th Street
etwee'n' Hickory and Beech
streets) remains unpaved when

other streets like Jasmine and Lime
are newly repaved?
Finally, in regard to Crane
Island, if Amelia Island Plantation
is allowed to transfer its surplus
development density rights to
Civitas so that it can develop 250
homes on Crane Island, does this
change the fact that Crane Island
is still in a coastal high hazard
zone?

Fernandina Beach

Missing the point
It saddens me to see the art
community so conflicted about the
city commission's decision to allo-
cate money to the Amelia Art
Centre ("City OKs funds for art,"
Jan. 21). We are blessed with so
many wonderful art organizations
supported by generous and pas-
sionate patrons and volunteers.
Some of the silly e-mails and stri-
dent comments seem top .e mi,,ing
the point, and can only serve, to
create deep divisions within the
hearts of all art lovers.


VESTAL


As has been reported, years ago
the city established a mechanism to
support a cultural facility. This is a
common decision made in towns
and cities across the country to
create space for art centers and
civic auditoriums through public
or public/private partnerships -
part of a community's commitment
to invest in itself.
Although nothing ever came of
that dream, the need was and is
- real. When the First Baptist
Church came on the market many
recognized that facility as an ideal
place to establish such a multi-pur-
pose cultural center. Some sug-
gested that the city/county should
seize the opportunity for all of us.
But nothing was done. So a small
group of citizens stepped forward
in an effort to save the once-in-a-life-
time opportunity from slipping
through our collective fingers. This
is a huge undertaking, and will
require support and cooperation
.from manny quarters to be suc-
cessful. ,
So I support the commitment
of funds, despite some of the odd

Risque business
Thanks for your coverage and

not happy about them coming to
Nassau County and I intend to
express my displeasure the good
old-fashioned free-market way I
won't 'patronize them! I believe
there is still plenty of time for our
leaders to act pro-actively for the
future, though.
We are located on 1-95, and
everyone who travels along 1-95 in
Florida, Georgia, North Carolina
and South Carolina is well aware of
all the "Cafe Risqu6s" that dot the
landscape at various exits. Perhaps
our commissioners could plan
ahead and take preventative action
for the future so that we won't see
the Wayfara or Stuckey's being pur-


unknown persons who assisted in
the return of our precious peek-a-
poo, Fergie. On the afternoon of
Jan. 20, Fergie accidentally slipped
away from our supervision.
We are grateful for our won-
derful neighbors on Lumina Court
in the Arbours of Amelia. They
helped us search for Fergie
through the daylight and evening
hours.
Particular thanks to Barbara,
Ken and Jake Reece, who are most
certainly Fergie's "special angels."
Barbara, along with six other cars,
stopped on Will Hardee Road and
spent considerable time rescuing
her. The Reece family provided
Fergie with loving care in their
own home. On Jan. 21, Barbara
reunited us with Fergie and the
reunion was joyous for all. We are
indeed happy to be an "intact" fam-
ily once again. We are blessed.

It's not fair to support one arts group over others


tion to provide public money for a private
arts center which could pave the way for it
to receive a half million dollars of taxpay-
ers' money over the next 10 years. This has caused
considerable consternation in Amelia Island's arts
community.
On one side is the Amelia Arts Centre, which
wants to purchase the First Baptist Church down-
town and transform it into a building for presenting
various cultural and musical events. On the other
side is the "arts community." This refers essentially
to 'ne artistic group, the Island Art Association, and
two performing arts groups, Amelia Community
Theatre and Fernandina Little Theatre. These
groups are well established here and have been con-
tributing to the cultural life on the island for
decades.
I would like to make it perfectly clear that I am
not speaking officially for any of these groups
although I am a participating member in all of them.
These are all my opinions and positions.
Amelia Art Centre supporters say their oppo-
nents don't understand what they are trying to
achieve for the whole community. Those of us who
oppose the public funding understand exactly what
they are trying to do, and they are to be commend-
ed for it. It is a wonderful idea and will certainly
enrich the arts and culture on the island and will no
doubt be beneficial to the community. However,
Amelia Arts Centre supporters do not understand
what the real issue is. The issue is the use of public
money to fund a private arts organization to the total

exclusion of other local well-established arts organi-
zations.
It has been well publicized that the arts center
has an anonymous donor who will give $750,000
towards the purchase of the Baptist church on the
condition that the city provide operating expenses
($50,000 a year is.the most quoted figure) for 10
years. That condition is probably to ensure that after
such a large donation is made, the arts center is
guaranteed the ability to operate and survive. In
other words, the arts center would enjoy minimum
risk on startup.

Commissioner Beano Roberts suggested the arts
center deserved the funds because it is just starting.
It is worth noting that ACT and the Island Art
Association, both of which have been here for more
than 20 years, and FLT, which has been here for a
decade, have never received a penny from the city
- no startup costs, no operating expenses, nothing.
Commissioner Roberts seemed to imply
the local arts community should not get city money
because it.is not unified. The only area where
arts groups can present a united front is in cooperat-
ing to get funds. Actors don't need an art gallery
and artists don't need a stage, which rules out a
common facility. Even with extensive renovations,
the church building is not suitable for stage
plays.
Mayor Greg Roland suggested that the new arts
center might be the official dispenser of public
funds to the other arts organizations.
Is it surprising that the existing arts community
might feel somewhat offended or even hurt? A
brand new organization shows up on the scene and
the city offers it $500,000 of taxpayers' money over
10 years and sets it up as above the other arts
groups which is how many people, myself included,
have interpreted this.
It is my understanding that the arts center will
be a site primarily for musical events as well as
films, lectures and perhaps other events and meet-
ings. The arts center facilities will be available for
rent. (The Amelia Arts Academy will be a tenant in
the building.)
In other words, the arts center will not produce
or create any art. It will be a facility available for hire
and a booking agency to bring musical and other
acts to the island. As Commissioner Mike Lamb
pointed out, "This is a private enterprise, not a civic
auditorium."
Arts center supporters maintain that the center
will make great contributions to the entire commu-
nity. If bringing quality musical events to the island
is considered a benefit, the arts center will certainly
provide it and it will be a most welcomed addition.
Until the arrival of the Amelia Island Chamber
Music Festival, musical arts had not been well rep-
resented on the island. But the "benefit" of more
music is only for those who love and patronize musi-
cal events, not the whole community. This argu-
ment, of course, applies to ACT and FLT, who pro-
vide a benefit for those who love theater, and the art


association is a benefit for those who love art.
Although the city commission seems to be giving
special favors to the arts center, I don't think anyone
in the arts community itself believes one art form is
superior to the other.
If we define contributions as things an organiza-
tion gives to the community, existing organizations
have a very distinguished track record. ACT's
Peppermint Players have been introducing grade-
school children to theater for years. Both ACT and
FLT conduct summer theater programs for children
and have given many students their first stage expe-
rience. Art association artists have been giving free
art lessons to children for years and have donated
thousands of dollars to buy art supplies for students.
ARIAS, which has not been mentioned much in this
issue, already brings the Jacksonville Symphony to
the island and sponsors "Instrument Zoo" for school
children.
What message is the city commission sending by
awarding the art center a substantial amount of pub-
lic monies to the exclusion of other arts associations
which have been giving to the community for a long
time? The money is not going to the "entire com-
munity," as some arts center supporters have said, it
is going to one private organization.
Unfortunately, this comes at a very sensitive time
since both the Amelia Community Theatre and
Island Art Association are also conducting major
fund-raising campaigns to build a state-of-the-art the-
ater for stage productions and a new cooperative art
gallery. These organizations did not ask for public
funds because they believed (correctly) there were
none available for the arts.
This issue was set off when someone brought up
the $58,000 that the Port of Fernandina pays annual-
ly to the city and was set aside years ago for a civic
auditorium. It was rescinded in 1993 so funds are
not available unless the city commission provides
them in the budget.
There are really two questions here: Should the
city of Fernandina provide financial support for local
art groups? Without question, all local arts groups
and residents who support the arts would answer
"yes." Should the local government provide
financial support for a single art group to the exclu-
sion of all the others? Without question, everyone
who supports the local arts and believes in fairness
and properly dispensing taxpayers' money would
answer "no."

DRUGS Continued from 1A
To some degree, the surveys
measure whether three anti-drug
and crime programs and four anti-
violence programs, implemented
in county middle schools since
2002, have had any effect on the
youngsters' behavior.
The substance abuse survey
split the "alcohol" category, sur-
veying separately as beer, wine or
liquor and wine coolers. Coolers,
now mostly sweet alcoholic malt
drinks in various flavors, showed a
more marked decline, from just
over 10 percent to just under 7 per-
cent Traditional alcoholic staples
edged down from about 9 percent
to just over 8 percent
Marijuana use, however, has
risen from 5 percent to 6 percent of
middle school age students sur-
veyed.
The surveys revealed mixed
news for tobacco. Although report-
ed cigarette use is down, from
about 7 percent to about 6 percent,
those reporting "dipping" or "chew-
ing" smokeless tobacco products
rose from 2 to 4 percent
"I have been talking to our
Project Alert leaders to make sure
they emphasize the dangers of
smokeless tobacco," Rogers told
school board members.
In Rogers' presentation to the
board, the Project Alert program
was touted as a "proven and effec-
tive drug prevention program."
The drug survey's best news.
was a reported sharp decline in
the use of "inhalants," usually the
concentration and/inhalation of.
chemical products commonly
,found under kitchen sinks and in
garages. That percentage fell from
about 5 percent to under 2 per-


cent.
Violence prevention programs
appear to be making a dent in stu-
dent perceptions, but the violence
survey also suggested that a high
percentage of middle school chil-
dren are quick to defend them-
selves against a violent attack with
violence.
About 85 percent said they
would hit back when hit in at least
some .circumstances, down from
88 percent in 2002. Additionally,
fewer students agreed, at least in
part, that it is OK to hit someone
who hits them first, but the num-
ber is still about 73 percent, down
from 80 percent.
Both this school year and in
2002, few students agreed that it is
"fun to pick on someone smaller
than I am" or that they would want
a knife or a gun in a fight, but the
number of students agreeingwith
those two statements declined as
well; with the number of children
admitting bullying tendencies
falling from 40 percent to about
25 percent and those admitting a
taste for weaponry falling from 20
percent to 10 percent
The number of students agree-
ing, at least in part, with the state-
ment "If someone makes fun of
me, I can't get him to stop unless
I hit him," edged down from about
62 percent to about 60 percent
A total of 650 students from all
four district middle schools were
surveyed in 2004, while 501 were
surveyed in 2002, Rogers noted.
Superintendent of Schools John
Ruis noted that the district will pur-
sue funding to continue anti-drug
and violence prevention programs
in the face of evaporating state ini-
tiatives to fund such efforts.

Scholar mines museum treasure trove


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader
If you've ever considered how a
person of English-Irish birth came
with his parents to French Canada
and received dual citizenship from
Canada and the U.S., eventually
becoming a resident of Fernandina
and a serious student of its sociol-
ogy well, has Brien Laing got a
story to tell.
His father was English and his
mother Irish, and Laing lived in
England for the first seven or eight
years of his life "before we crossed
the pond to get to French Canada,
where my father could find a job as
an accountant," Laing says.
He went to Canadian schools,
received his undergraduate degree
in chemistry from McGill
University in Montreal in 1949 "in
order to get a job," he says, joined
the American Hospital Supply
Corp., which sent him to southern
Alabama, served in both the
Canadian Air Force and the U.S.

'I'm here to help, I learn by doing that.'
- BRIEN LAING. AMELIA ISLAND MUSEUM OF HISTORY


Navy, paid taxes in both countries
- and worked for the next 40
years before retiring.
"I came here from French
Canada where people did not get
along well with the English," Laing
says in quiet understatement. "I
also remember the Martin Luther
King days in Montgomery, Ala.,
the Montgomery boycott and Rosa
Parks.
"I traveled through Mississippi,
Alabama, Florida and southern
Georgia. I was not a radical, but I
was stimulated to think about why
things were happening as they
were," Laing says. "And I could
not tolerate conversations about
racism and the blacks."
Laing says his life was threat-
ened twice because of his opin-
ions, "but it was a deep personal
experience for me to see how the
blacks were oppressed," he says.
Then his 40 years of personal
observations and experiences led
him to decide two weeks after he
retired to start all over again -
this time with a concentration in
black history, for which he earned
a master's degree, then going on to
earn a doctorate in African-
American history.
"After that, people asked me
what I was going to do 'with all
that stuff.' I didn't yet know but
I did not want to teach," Laing says.
However, for one week each year,
he teaches business classes as a
visiting professor at Florida A&M
University and at the University of
Colorado at Boulder.


"I enjoy talking to people about
learning, but I did not want to be
tied down," he says. He was
offered an internship at the Amelia
Island Museum of History while he
was working on his master's, and
has volunteered at the museum
since 1998 and enjoyed that, he
says. He is the museum's research
and archives volunteer. Since earn-
ing his doctorate, Laing says he
helps people who come to the
museum with research questions
"and I'm here to help," he says. "I
learn by doing that."
What is important to him, per-
sonally, he says, is the community
in which he works or lives. "It's
important to understand that," he
says.
"Both races in Fernandina rec-
ognized the racism that existed,
but they got along harmoniously.
As kids, they did everything
together "except they were not
allowed to go to school together,"
Laing says.
"The whites brought the blacks
in from Rosewood after a woman
fabricated a story about an attack.
A black community outside
Orlando was wiped out. Then there
was' a quiet little community like
Fernandina where the blacks and
whites led parallel lives liking
each other, getting along together
and working together. Very
unique," Laing says.
He attributed that to the
absence of a bridge for so long,
"so the community was isolated.
And that isolation allowed people to

live together in great harmony.'
Laing says the churches are the
core of the Fernandina communi-
ty, and part of building a stable
community was having those
churches here.
"St. Peter's Episcopal Church
is surrounded by black churches,
and all the churches bought the
property from the railroad. Each
had-to pay $16 per year until the
$200 price for the land was paid
off," Laing says.
But the same stability did not
hold true for the schools, he says.

could go to school was to ride the
log trucks in. And they never knew
when the trucks would go back.
So education was sporadic. The
schools were not what they should
have been. Black schools were
downright bad, except for Peck
High School," he says.
Over the bridge, though, Laing
notes that "things were entirely '
different. Yulee was "part of the
rest of Florida" a railroad hub
with transient traffic, and it did not
have the protected, quiet environ-
ment of Fernandina.
"But" Laing says, "the people
who lived here got along well
together.
"And I can't tell you how won-
derful the black people have been
in this community," he says. "They
are warm and loving. But the chil-
dren of blacks don't come back
after schooling because they
haven't the employment opportu-
nities here as compared with other
places," Laing says. "That is a deep
concern of African-Americans in
Fernandina."

Fine dining requires fine table service, too


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
They make fine dining a mem-
orable experience: the service is
perfect, the wine steward knowl-
edgeable, the maitre', courteous
and helpful.
"They" are certifi.c4 embers
of the Federation of Pjning Room
Professionals, a world'Wee organi-
zation and the leading provider of
service certification, "founded by
Bernard M. Martinage, who immi-
grated to this country as a, young
man with a degree from the
Culinary School of Semur en
Auxois in Burgundy, France. He
specialized in table service.
SMartinage now lives on Amelia
Island, and has relocated the head-
quarters of FDRP to Fernandina
Beach.
"I was not born where I chose to
be born, but in France, and lived
thereuntil I was 22. Then I trav-
eled around Europe for a while, liv-
ing in different countries. Upon vis-
itingthe United States, I knew that
this was where I wanted to live the
rest of my life. I've been in the U.S.
for nearly 15 years now and I
vote! ,
He adds those last three words
with a proud smile, for that was not
a privilege Martinage acquired eas-
ily. His application for, a visa was
not granted; dining room workers
were not eligible. "But I was deter-
mined to overcome the obstacles
and become a legalized citizen."
Martinage had taught himself
English with the help of tapes and
books. He bought a television set
and watched the CBS news. "The
news had subtitles in my native lan-
guage, so I put tape across the bot-
tom of the screen so that I would
have to listen carefully to the spo-
ken English in order to understand.
I studied for two months, eight
hours a day. 'Then, I felt I was
ready" '
He came to America, deciding
on San Frafacisco as a place to live,
and spent two weeks on'a bicycle
visitingeiery European restaurant
in'the city. But no one would hire
hini without papers. Finally, he was
hired at a small French restaurant
- as a dishwasher.
"I was the happiest pot scrubber
in the country," he says. "All the
other employees in the kitchen
were Hispanic, and they were fun-
loving and delightful to work with."
"Then I got a break. I noticed
that the wine cellar-- actually just
a iflost~t Yli p
d w had toiOyR9VjJ
fwluieSobea designed an efficient,
vlume. So I designed an efficient,


correct wine cellar and submitted
the design to my boss. He gave me
the keys to his car, a blank check
and said 'Build. it.' I was elated. He
was delighted with the results, and
rewarded me substantially. He also
made me a cook.
"Later, with that work back-
ground, I moved to Arizona and
was able to become a legalized cit-
izen, and eventually became a pro-
fessor in the Culinary Institute in
Hyde Park, New York." Under his
watch, the flagship restaurant of
the institute, Escoffier, became the
first student-staffed restaurant in
America to receive a five-star rating,
as well as an induction into the Fine
Dining Hall of Fame. :
- While teaching at the institute,
Martinage realized that there was
no organization fhat provided cer-
tification in dining room service.
That need led to the establishment
of the FDRP, which counts among
its members some of the most pre-
eminent culinary institutions -and

Martinage is a repository of
such factual stories, some serious,
some funny, and all told in fasci-

his interest in the culinary arts;
perhaps simply because he has a
natural zest for learning. In his
other interests, too, he is apt to find
a relationship to his love of the culi-

Man held in ax assault


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
A Nassauville man was arrested
and charged with attempted first-
degree murder Monday after split-
ting a Jacksonville man's head with
an ax.
The wounded 22-year-old man
remained awake and was able to
identify his attacker to rescue
workers and deptities.
Antonino Quan Albertie, 23, of
3311 Leo Drive, was arrested
Monday night and charged with
attempted first-degree murder.
Albertie is charged with hitting
Demetrick Oats, 22, of
Jacksonville, in the head with the


blade side of an
ax Monday after-
noon as the two
argued, possibly
over a woman,
said Sgt. Greg
SFoster of the
I Nassau County
Albertie Sheriff's Office.
"He was
awake and con-
scious, despite the injury," Foster
said.
After he was hit, Oats wandered
out to the street for help.
"A passerby picked him up
down near the crime scene location
on Leo Drive in Nassauville,"
Foster said.


The passerby brought Oats to
Nassau County Fire Rescue Station
70 in O'Neil about 2:30 p.m. Oats
was transported to Shands
Jacksonville and sheriffs deputies
began their search for Albertie.
After searching for about six
hours, deputies found Albertieat a
residence on Harper Chapel Road
in Yulee.
"He was f6und relatively quick-
ly," Foster said. He said Albertie
has a record of prior arrests, but
"nothing in reference to this type of
thing."
Shands reported that Oats was
in fair condition Tuesday morn-
ing.

Driving, parking this week


may cause super' headaches


News-Leader
Driving, parking and even
crossing the street may require
extra care during the. next few days
as Super Bowl traffic increases on
Amelia Island and in Nassau
County.
Special parking restrictions
have been imposed in downtown
Fernandina Beach, beginning'
today, because of the traffic for
Super Bowl events.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said Monday he is
expecting increased traffic flow on
1-95, ALA, US 17, US 301 and US 1
through Monday.
"We will have deputies. sta-
tioned in these areas to maintain
traffic flow but expect some


delays," Seagraves cautioned in a
statement for the media.
"If you must travel during this
time, please consider an alternate
route such as back roads and pos-
sibly leaving earlier than normal
during this week," he advised.
The sheriff forecast delays for
those traveling to Amelia Island
and- the Yulee area, especially
Friday evening and Saturday
because of the Super Shellfish
Feast scheduled on the Amelia
River waterfront.
Seagraves cautioned senior cit-
izens of traffic delays because
"some doctors' offices may be with-
in the security zone."
"If an emergency arises and
hospital care is needed, expect
delays," he warned.

SUV safety drive launched


Florida Attorney General
Charlie Crist helped launch
Monday a nationwide SUV safety
campaign resulting from a $51.5-
million settlement reached with
Ford Motor Co. by Florida and the
other 49 states.
Under the settlement, in which
Florida served as thj lead state,
Ford agreed to provide $27 million
for a year-long national education
program to reduce SUV rollovers,
particularly among young male
drivers, who have the highest inci-
dence of such accidents.
The focus of the safety cam-
paign is the largely overlooked fact
that driving a sport utility vehicle as
if it were an ordinary passenger
car can be fatal. In 2000, rollover
crashes killed 9,873 occupants of
passenger cars and light trucks,
accounting for almost one-third of
the total deaths of occupants of
these types of vehicles.
Despite these disturbing fig-
ures, more than four in 10
Americans think they are safer in
an SUV than in a regular car,
according to a new consumer sur-
vey.
"This campaign can save lives,"


said Crist "The purpose is to alert
SUV owners, especially younger
drivers, that these vehicles need to
be respected for what they can and
cannot do. They are susceptible to
rollovers when overloaded, or when
a sudden maneuver is made at a
high rate of speed. Drivers need to
be the master of these vehicles, not
the other way around."
SUV drivers should check tire
pressure monthly, avoid overload-
ing the SUV, always wear a seat-
belt and try to avoid abrupt maneu-
vers and speeding, according to
the safety campaign.
The agreement, crafted by
lawyers within the Florida Attorney
General's Office, settled state law-
suits alleging that Ford's marketing
practices misled consumers on how
to drive, load and maintain Ford
Explorers. As part of the settle-
ment, Ford agreed to fund the $27
million consumer education cam-
paign on SUV safety.
The SUV Safety Campaign will
utilize a web site, www.ESUV
EE.com, to provide tips and infor-
mation about safe operation and
maintenance of SUVs. The cam-
paign aims to inform the public


about the following critical safety
elements that can help save
lives:
Handling: SUVs have a high-
er center of gravity than passenger
cars, which contributes to the high-
er risk of rollover. The chances of
an SUV rollover are further
increased by speeding, abrupt
maneuvers, inattentiveness, tail-
gating, recklessness, aggressive-
ness or ifipaired driving.
Loading: According to the
new consumer survey, nearly 50
percent of Americans do not know
that overloading an SUV increas-
es the risk of rollovers. The number
of occupants, as well as the weight
and distribution of cargo, raises an
SUV's center of gravity, increasing
the risk of rollover.
Tires: Tire size, pressure and
maintenance are keys to SUV safe-
ty. Drivers should monitor each of
these, and take them into account
when loading an SUV.
Seat belts: Perhaps the most
preventable cause of death in an
SUV rollover is ejection from the
vehicle. Eighty percent of those
killed in SUV rollovers are unbelt-
ed.

6 women in Wal-Mart heist


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader

Six Jacksonville women filled
three shopping carts with $9,200 in
merchandise Saturday at the Wal-
Mart Supercenter in Yulee and
headed out its front door, police
say.
Charging past greeters, secu-
rity and numerous witnesses, they
set off the store's security alarm as
they rolled the carts into the park-
ing lot, loading the goods into a
blue 2005 Lincoln Town Car.
Three of the women were cap-


tured but three remain at large,
Nassau County Sheriff's reports
indicate.
Rosemary Zeigler, 26, Deedra
Berry, 29, and Shanelle Asbell, 19,
were all arrested and charged with
felony retail theft. Asbell, who
reportedly got into a scuffle with a
Wal-Mart employee while trying
to get away, was also charged with
battery.
The group of Jacksonville
women was recorded on video at
the Wal-Mart Supercenter as they
filled three shopping carts with as
much as they would hold.


"Once the carts were filled to
capacity (they) simply headed for
the main exit doors," the sheriff's
report stated.
The store's alarm went off, and
loss prevention and Wal-Mart secu-
rity employees gave chase. Soon
after they told the sheriffs depart-
ment of the- incident, deputies
stopped the getaway car on A1A,
just east of 1-95. Deputies took the
three back to Wal-Mart to be iden-
tified, where the employees indi-
cated that they had been part of
the group involved in the theft.

Wildfire threat after storms


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson has announced
an elevated wildfire threat in
Florida forests damaged by the
2004 hurricanes.
"From Naples to Pensacola,
many once scenic stands of trees
are now tangled masses of trunks
and limbs," Bronson said, "This
additional debris will make wild-
fires both difficult to control and
dangerous for our firefighters."
Many trees damaged by high
winds or inundated by heavy rains


are expected to die from insect and
disease infestations over the next
two years. This, combined with tin-
der-dry grasses and frost-damaged
brush, means conditions in Florida
are conducive to an active wildfire
season. Bronson is urging people
who visit parks or forests to be
especially careful of lighted mate-
rials, such as cigarettes.
Bronson is also reminding peo-
ple to be careful when burning yard
trash outdoors. Outdoor burning to
reduce yard trash and household
paper products is allowed in most


Florida counties (daylight hours
only) provided the fire is enclosed
in a noncombustible container or
excavated pit and covered by a
metal mesh or grill. The fire must
be located away from any occupied
buildings and any nearby wood-
lands and must be attended at all
times.
Wildfires can occur throughout
the year in Florida, but the most
active part of the wildfire season
is usually from January through
May. Florida averages about 5,000
wildfires each year.

She's applying the Healing Balm


HEATHER PERRY
News-Leader


Mary Calhoun describes Healing
Balm Ministries as "a faith-based, com-
munity-based health advocacy organiza-
tion targeting HIV/AIDS prevention
and intervention."
The focus on HIV/AIDS is a person-
al issue for Calhoun, who has known its
victims. "We must overcome the stigma
attached to this disease so that people
will feel comfortable coming forward to
be tested," Calhoun said, "Our motto is
'Know Your Status.'"
Executive Director Calhoun founded
the ministry in 2001 along with Carolyn
Jacobs and Annie Evans. In partnership
with the Nassau County Health
Department, Healing Balm's outreach
inCludes AIDS testing at the Nassau
County Detention Center, health fairs,


70TH BIRTHDAYS


and youth programs at local churches.
Educational materials and AIDS tests
are available at their Yulee office.
The non-profit organization's work
also includes substance abuse preven-
tion, offender reentry to society and
other health care disparities of low-
income minorities in Nassau County.
Emphasizing the need for their min-
istry in the community, Calhoun said "a
minority... organization that targets
African-Americans will help reduce the
spread of the HIV/AIDS virus."
Free, confidential testing is available
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through
Friday at the office at 463237 SR 200 in
Yulee. Those with an aversion to nee-
dles will appreciate knowing that
Healing Balm tests use an oral swab.
Results are available in two weeks. For
additional information, call the office of
Healing Balm Ministries at 548-0055.

Philadelphia

to continue

down that

Rocky'road
ports fans in
Philadelphia haven't
'" had much to get
... excited about since
their 76ers captured an NBA
title in 1983. And if things
play out as most expect they
will in Alltel Stadium Sunday,
the bad mood will continue.
The business-like New
England Patriots arrived on
the First Coast Sunday
intent on capturing their
third Super Bowl champi-
onship in the last four years.
Unfortunately for
Philadelphia fans, their
Eagles will have to bear the
brunt of another Patriot cele-
bration.
Hey, but at least they
have Rocky Balboa to fall
back on. "Yo Adrian!"
Ah, the City of Brotherly
Love, where riots and mass
evacuations after sporting
events are commonplace.
Why just last week, police
exhausted all their
resources in arresting fans
after Philadelphia's victory
over the Atlanta Falcons in
the NFC Championship
game. Could you imagine
the scene if they had lost?
Or when they lose the Super
Bowl?
(Note to self: Don't be
anywhere in the vicinity of
Alltel Stadium at around
11:30 p.m. Sunday night)
But who could blame
Philly fans for their ill tem-
pers, right? I mean, it can't
be easy cheering for a movie
director to choreograph
your city's proudest champi-
onship a final-round
knockout of Ivan Drago in
Russia on Christmas Day.
Dramatic, even if fake.
Reality is, nobody but
Rocky director John G.
Avildsen has been able to
will Philadelphia to a cham-
pionship. Not Pat Corrales,
not Paul Owens, not Dick
Vermeil, not Ray Rhodes.
Jim Fregosi's Phillies
came the closest in the 1993
World Series only to find
themselves with a pitcher
nicknamed "Wild Thing" on
the mound in a clutch situa-
tion. Wild Thing gave up a
homerun to an aging Joe
Carter and the misery con-
tinued. And continues. And
will keep on continuing
Sunday.
The travesty of this year's
situation is that the Eagles
are, without a doubt, the
class of the NFC. Problem
is, the NFC stunk it up all
season. Somebody has to
play the invincible Patriots of
the mighty AFC. Might as
well be the Eagles from the
"City of Made-up
Championships."
Philly fans dream of a
statue depicting their tri-
umphant QB Donovan
McNabb standing in front of
the First Union Spectrum in
downtown Philadelphia after
a record-setting Super Bowl
victory.
Then they wake up and
see an original bronze statue
of Sylvester Stallone with a
fresh bird dropping on his
left boxing glove.
Sometimes reality stinks.
On a brighter note,
rumor has it that Rocky VI is
in the works. This time the
underdog boxer is apparent-
ly going to end Jason's reign
of terror for good in a mar-
quee matchup set for, when
else, Friday the 13th. There
is reportedly a sad twist
involving Pauly and an ear-
biting incident but I don't
want to spoil the movie.
Anyway, I digress.
Barring a monumental
meltdown by New England
Sunday, grief counselors in
Philadelphia will be raking
in some serious cash on
Monday that is the ones
who aren't seeking counsel-
ing for themselves.
And somewhere, Mitch
"Wild Thing" Williams will
cry a tear into his beer.
And the misery goes on.
John L. Crawford's column
appears Wednesdays.

Pirates lose


to Crusaders

BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Crusaders jumped on Fernandina Beach High
School's boys basketball team early Friday night,
building a 35-15 halftime lead en route to a 57-45 dis-
trict win over the Pirates.
"We played very poor in the first half," FBHS
Coach Matt Schreiber said. "The same thing hap-
pened the first time we played Bishop Kenny. We got
off to a terrible start. We had a good third quarter'."
The Pirates outscored the Crusaders 17-2 in the
third quarter.
Casey Lowe led FBHS with 15 points and three
rebounds. Marcus Johnson had 14 points and four
rebounds.
"Marcus Johnson played the best he's played all
year," Schreiber said. "He was sick early on and had
an ankle injury he was dealing with. He seemed to be
pretty healthy."
The Pirates traveled to Orlando to take on
Melbourne High School on Tuesday. They play at
Middleburg Thursday and return home Saturday for
the home finale against Bartram Trail. The Pirates' six
seniors J.D. Phillips, Casey Lowe, Terrence
Albertie, Carson Rodeffer, Otis Green and Ja'Sean
Washington -will be honored before the game. The
junior varsity plays at 6 p.m. and the varsity tilt is
7:30 p.m.
"We are in crunch time," Schreiber said. "We have
two regular season weeks left."
Friday's loss took the Pirates out of contention for
the No. 2 seed for the district tournament.
"We lost and we're in fifth," Schreiber said. "We'll
play Bishop Kenny."
The Pirates (11-7) will get a rematch against the
Crusaders Feb. 16 in the opening round of the district
tournament at Raines.


FBHS falls to BK


2-0 in title game

BETH JONES
News-Leader
After beating host Stanton in the first round of the
district tournament last week, the Fernandina Beach
High School girls soccer team played for the cham-
pionship Thursday. The Lady Pirates were blanked by
the Bishop Kenny Lady Crusaders 2-0.
Twenty-three other scoring attempts were blocked
by Pirate goal tender Coral Norheim.
The Pirates made several attempts on goal with two
by Dresden Roach and one apiece by Laura Mueller,
Jackie Olbina and Morgan Hall.
"I am proud of the girls for working hard against
Bishop Kenny," FBHS Coach Bethany Croese said.
"They never gave up and played a consistent 80 min-
utes of soccer. They have come a long way since the
beginning of the season."
The season isn't over for the Lady Pirates. As dis-
trict runners-up, they earned a playoff berth and will
play at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Ridgeview.


The FUNdamentals of Basketball, a program through the city
of Fernandina Beach Parks & Recreation Department,
teaches the basic fundamentals of basketball for children
ages 5-7. The group meets at Peck Gym on Saturday morn-
ings for an hour of lessons in shooting, dribbling and pass-
ing. Above, Caprice McGahee dribbles while, background
from left, Max Jones, Bobby Eichele, Justin Wattam and
Harrison Rodeffer wait their turn. Right, Jay Robertson gives
dribbling tips to Eichele. Bottom right, Scott Mikelson helps
Rodeffer prepare to shoot the ball. Below, Wattam slams the
ball with a little help from his instructor.

The Fernandina Beach High School girls bas-
ketball team lost 62-39 to Bishop Kenny's

ers, Haley Tan scored seven and Laci Roberts
chipped in six. The girls hosted Bolles
Tuesday and host Hilliard Thursday for the
regular season finale. Games are at 5:30 p.m.

Super Bowl weekend," said promoter Oscar De La
Hoya. "Just like the original Super Bowl concept
started many years ago, we believe that we are
starting with Super Fight I a new concept which will
grow over the years and capture the interest of
sports fans from around the world. I can promise
you that Friday night's action in the ring will be a fit-
ting prelude to the action we will see on Sunday

lwi's a great bet for host city


here is the NFL's version of a
practical joke." What they are
saying isn't nice, but the joke's on
them and we will laugh all the
way to the bank. The economic
impact is estimated to be
$250 to $300 billion. We can take
a lot of ribbing for that kind of
attention.
Football fan or not, everyone
benefits. We have cleaned house
in anticipation of our company.
Tons of trash has been collected.
State-of-the-art practice football
fields will remain for Bartram
Trail and the University of North
Florida. Our Alltel Stadium is
now state-of-the-art. We may even
enjoy future benefit. Other host
cities have found a long-term
effect on property values. The


hope is that the world will take us
seriously and other big events
will come visiting.
Some 9,500 volunteers,
whoops, I mean ambassadors,
have stepped forward and will be
meeting and greeting in their
bright red caps, jackets and
shirts. The Super Bowl Host
Committee raised millions from
corporate sponsors, the most of
any host city; The city has spent
$10 million for everything from
lighting all its famous bridges to
security.
Soon more people will know
about our beautiful beaches,
championship golf courses, great
restaurants and quality of life.
The hope is that people will say to
themselves and those back home


- "I want to bring my business
to Jacksonville" or "I could live
here," or just "I'm coming back!"
Who cares about those mean-
spirited sportswriters who would
grumbleabout anything it's
their job. It is nice to think that
most of them live in bigger, dirti-
er and much colder cities.
Success is always the best
revenge.
One thing for sure, the city of
bridges has come a lofg way
from the days'it was known as
Cowford. We may be the smallest
city to ever host a Super Bowl but
our guests will soon learri we
may be the proudest.

"I'd like the city commis-

long, hard thought... to
what you're doing with these
boards," Duncan said. "It's
the one true place the citizens
have to make their voices
heard. I don't know what your

consolidating these boards,
citizens will not get proper
