Trees, brush cut on



swath ofgreenway


MICHAEL LEAFR FOR THE NEWi-LEADER
Felled trees and cleared brush in the Egans Creek Greenway provide a clear view of a Seaside
subdivision home, above, from a hiking trail and marsh. Just a few feet away, below, the forest
obscures views to and from most of the subdivision homes. The trees were unlawfully chopped
and left to decay, bottom.

MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
More than 15-trees were cut
down in ,the Eghns Creek
Greenway about three-tenths of a
mile south of the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center adjacent to the
Seaside subdivision.
Police have investigated the
incident as criminal mischief,
reporting that "residents and pos-
sibly others along the wetland area
have been involved in landscaping
activities in the wetland areas."
"We were shocked," said Nan
Voit, director of city parks and
recreation. "Somebody blatantly
went in and cleared a path."
This segment of the greenway,
between Atlantic Avenue : and
Jasmine Street, was restored to a
salt marsh by the state at a cost of
$2.4 million. It has walking trails
and bridges over the creek and
other amenities are planned;.
"We want the public to under-
stand that is sacred property, that's
a preserve," Voit said.
It is unlawful to clear trees on
public property without city per-
mission. In fact, a permit is
required to clear select trees on
private property on the island.
Police reported 15 trees were
felled between a walking trail and
a nearby home, but one observer
estimated twice that many were
cut. "The most cutting and larger
trees are nearer the house and
require boots or waders to see

Nassau County residents may
soon have to pay more to dump
their trash in the county landfill,
which will be open fewer hours.
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney told Nassau County
Commissioners on Wednesday he
sees no other options for the finan-
cially troubled operation.
With the withdrawal of a Duval
County company that paid the
county to dump trash here, the


landfill's budget will go into the
red this summer, Mahaney said.
He recommended that the landfill
raise its annual fees to Nassau
County taxpayers, refinance its $20.
million bond to lower payments,
reduce staff and shorten its hours
of operation.
County residents currently pay
a $45 annual property assessment
for their use of the landfill, whether
a carrier picks up their garbage or
whether they haul their trash them-
selves. Commissioners previously
lowered that assessment from $100


when the landfill began to accept
out-of-county waste.
"It was a political move,"
Commissioner Marianne Marshall
said. "If that $100 (assessment)
had stayed in place, wewould not
be addressing these issues today."
Commissioner Tom Branan,
who was on the county commis-
sion that reduced the assessment
beginning in 1993, bristled at
Marshall's comment.
"It may have been a political

shrimp boats


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
The first official shrimp boat
race in 28 years is scheduled to
take place on the Amelia River
waterfront at the foot of Centre
Street at 3 p.m. Saturday.
Part of the first Fernandina
Super Shellfish Feast, it harkens
to days gone by of the annual
shrimp festival held here each
May.
When the News-Leader's Ray
Caldwell suggested in a 1959
editorial that we follow the lead
of Tampa and Pensacola and
establishf'afestival here, he real-
ly started something.
Imagine how astounded he
would be.tosee what it has
become nii best, most
popular festivals in the country
with approximately 130,000 fun-
seekers forming a tightly knit,
slow-moving blanket of people
through several blocks of the
downtown historic district on
the first weekend of each May.
"Why not something of this
nature here on historic Amelia
Island that is steeped in pirate
lore and boasts of being under
eight flags," Caldwell wrote. He
discussed his idea with
shrimper Melvin Dougherty
and Bill Burbank Jr., a trawl-
maker. It took root, and a small
event was born in 1963, which
became known as the Shrimp
Boat Race Festival. The first
race took place in 1964. The fes-
tivities included a parade and a
Friday night street dance.
A similar celebration, the
Lions Club Beach Opening
Fiesta. which was part of the
week-long Fiesta of 8 Flags,
took place every June. It includ-
ed a golf tournament, a histori-
cal pageant at Fort Clinch and a

beauty contest.
But the downtown celebra-
tion proved to be more success-
ful. Caldwell suggested a merg-
er of the two events, which was
to be held in the month of May
in an effort to more fully involve
the shrimpers before their
busiest season began.
The shrimp boat race, billed
as the first and only one of its
kind, became the main attrac-
tion, coordinated with the speed

"Hurry! Buy our featured
entertainment center and save
$200 with our rebate offer!"
How many time have you seen
a similar ad? How many times
* have you bought a particular
product because of such an offer?
More important, how often have
you sent in the required form,
receipt and labels and received
the promised cash?
The chances are less than 50
percent The Federal Trade
Commission estimates that over
S- half of rebates go unclaimed
because consumers lose the
form, throw away the UPC code
or just can't be bothered to fill out
the paperwork and mail it. And
TCA, just one of the large compa-
nies that handles the claims for
manufacturers, says that they
reject 800,000 claims a year that
are sent in.
Thafs because it is so easy for
consumers to mess up the often.
complicated directions associated
| with rebates.


f So why
do more and
more manu-
facturers
-: '| offer rebates
when the
.. promotional
S........ -- strategy
doesn't work well? The truth is, it
works very, very well for the
manufacturer, who hopes you
don't bother to claim the rebate
after you have purchased their
product, or don't jump through
all the hoops correctly in order to
qualify.
The reality is that rebate
offers are here to stay and are
multiplying, and really can pro-
vide a nice shopping bonus if the
process is completed. Here are
some steps you can take to make
sure that happens:
First of all, don't buy some-
thing just because the product
offers a rebate. Shop around and
compare the prices of competitive
brands with firm prices, and
make your choice without consid-
ering the rebate. That way, if you
do decide on the one with the


offer, you can consider it a bonus
if you actually receive it.
Read the form carefully to
make sure you can qualify before
you make the purchase. Some-
times you will find that the time
frame for sending the forms has
expired or is so close that your
claim wouldn't arrive in time.
Go where the rebating is
easy. Staples' online rebate center
allows customers to find the right
forms, file them and even track
rebates. Best Buy, Costco and
Lowe's automatically provide the
buyer of a rebate-related item an
extra copy of the receipt and a
copy of the required form at
checkout Some other companies
will print out an extra receipt if
you ask for it
Fill out the form completely,
and make sure you have followed
directions to the letter, including
all requested materials, such as
UPC bar codes cut from the pack-
age or box, receipt (send the
original, keep a copy), and any-
thing else. Remember, the manu-
facturer wants you to disqualify
yourself.

mitted, including photocopies of

there are big dollars involved,
request a postal delivery confir-

Keep track of your claim.
The average rebate takes six to
eight weeks. If it is taking longer,
contact the manufacturer.
Do complain if things don't
go right. Let both the retailer and
manufacturer know that poor cus-

the highest possible level are the
most effective. Contact the
Federal Trade Commission. You
can call toll-free at 1-877-FTC-

Sound like a lot of work? It can
be, and is only worth it if the
rebate is fairly substantial. Your
time is valuable, so weigh the
hoped-for return against the has-
sle of submitting a claim in the
first place. You may decide to
save your stamp.

Teachers may



earn 'pay for



performance'


KEVIN TI l Rr<\
ANewsLeader

Board unanimouslyy .qpprvoi'd a
program that will pay district
teachers more if th-c get itfir
students to do well i standard-
ized tests.
The board voted unanimously
Thursday u;.i' to ,,,r:-::, the
..L';si ,'t'l' ""'y i. m';' :V. t"
ilx' nl ivw', p;,la.i !'I I'.i. ii I (l -I11 ci inl
The last t'O r *. ft i ,ii, p .iini
was as per an agreement between
the school board and the Nassau
Teachers' Assucialtion.
Getting at least 75 percent of
their pupils to test at "proficiency"
levels is one of four criteria the
teachers must meet to get the
extra money. Once they do, they
will get 1 percent of their base
pay more if 75 percent to 79 per-
cent of their students hit the
incentive mark.
Teachers can get a maximum
bonus of 5 percent of their base
salary if 95 to 100 percent of their
students test well.
The bulk of the teacher incen-
tive program is aimed at improved
student performance in the state-
mandated Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) exams.
This applies to children in third-
through 10th grade, and would
require that at least 75 percent of
them score a "level three" or bet-
ter in the FCAT "Sunshine State
Standards."
Teachers of kindergarten stu-
dents, to qualify for more pay,
would have to maximize the num-
ber of children who meet the cri-
teria for promotion as the district
has specified.
Teachers of high school jun-
iors and seniors would have to
concern themselves with the SAT
or ACT test scores of their stu-
dents, hoping that those students
score a 410 or better in reading
and 370 in math on the SAT or 15
or better on reading and 15 or


more in math on the ACT.
Teachers of students with dis-
abilities would receive incentives
if 75 percent or more of their stu-
dents rated a "3" or above on the
Florida Alternate Assessment test
To qualify, all teachers must
also receive all "exemplary" rat-
ings on their performance apprais-
al for this school year and the pre-
vious one. They must also attend
a workshop on building student
reading and math skills.
Additionally, all areas of their
instruction must include empha-
sis on reading and math, and their
lesson plans will be reviewed for
compliance in this area.
Assistant Superintendent of
Instruction Edward Turvey
emphasized the program's
emphasis on reading.
"All teachers must be teach-
ers of reading" to vie for bonus
dollars, Turvey said. "We need
our best teachers teaching all of
our students," and not just to
upper-grade students.
School principals are to con-
duct classroom observations of
teachers seeking the bonus
money as well, Turvey noted.
They are to ensure that the teach-
ers are truly incorporating math.
and reading into all they teach
and are following through with
such priorities as included in their
lesson plans.
Superintendent of Schools
John Ruis touted the program.
"We had, years ago, the old,
merit school plan," Ruis said. "It
forced teachers to work togeth-
er. I think this plan can do that.
They have a vested interest in this-
thing."
Board members expressed
support for incorporating reading
and math the two most meas-
ured items in standardized' tests
into all education curriculum.
"Integrated instruction is the
way to go," said board member
Kathy Burns.

RACE Continued from 1A
boat race by Clayton Sanders
and Louis Ferriera. Joe Tringali,
owner and captain of the Dixie
Queen, became a local celebrity
when his boat won three years in
a row.
"One of the main reasons the
shrimp boat parade and race was
started was to have a formal
blessing of the fleet," said
shrimper David Cook, whose
boat, the Little David, purchased
by his grandfather in 1963, won
several times during the years of
racing.
The blessing, performed by
the pastor of St Michael
Church, as it is now, was indeed
an event of great importance to
the shrimpers. The industry is
dependent on the whims of
nature, and those who gain their
livelihood from the sea tradition-
ally look to the Creator for help.
In 1971 a professionally
judged art show was added, and
by the next year the Chamber of
Commerce was involved and less
emphasis was put on the races.
The shrimpers became less
involved. Then non-profit organi-
zations were asked to sponsor
booths. The event expanded to a
full week of activities and attrac-
tions.
Fuel costs were rising, and
shrimpers and their families
were also putting long hours into
preparing their boats for show
and racing. Also, there were
many more small boats now tied
up to the docks, and owners
were complaining that surges
from the racing boats caused
waves that tossed their boats
against the piers, causing dam-
age to the crafts.
And so, in 1977, the races
came to an end, and the name
was changed from "The Shrimp
Boat Festival" to "The Isle of
Eight Flags Annual Shrimp
Festival."

New county commission meeting hall?


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
are considering spending $100,000
in impact fees for a new meeting
hall for themselves.
Although they have not yet
approved the move, commissioner
comments indicated that support is
there.
The new board room, once a
jury room in the former tempo-
rary courthouse (now the Nassau
County Government Complex) in
Yulee, would be outfitted with net-
worked computers for staff and
flat-screen monitors that would
allow overflow crowds to see and
hear what is going on in the board
room without forcing them to
weather the elements.
Other improvements would
include wheelchair access, digital
"whiteboards" that could record
what was written or projected on
them and better positioning for
cameras to record or broadcast


e the meetings.
The new
room would also
increase the
meeting hall's
seating capacity.
The $100,000
would include
$32,840 in tech-
Branan nology alone,
from cable tele-
vision hookups
to Microsoft Office 2003 licenses.
"I think you could cover all of
this cost with the impact fees," said
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney.
Commissioner Marianne
Marshall said the commission can
move from its current venue at
,Pages Dairy Road and US 17 when
a meeting promises to garnish an
overflow crowd, but other com-
missioners said that would require
more staff time than it was worth.
There was some question about
the "administrative impact fees,"
which are intended to pay for con-


struction of county buildings.
Marshall suggested the money be
used to build a new Nassau County
Sheriff's Office administrative
building, which has been known to
leak after heavy rains.
"There was never any request
to use the fees for the sheriff's
administrative building," said
County Attorney Michael Mullin.
Additionally, Commission Chair
Ansley Acree expressed doubt that
the $200,000 in the fund would be
of much help in that effort.
"I would like to see what we
can use those administrative fees
for," said Marshall. "We have a lot
of needs in this county. I'd like
them to look at the full picture, not
just one."
Branan noted that many Yulee
area groups use the county build-


ing and often their meetings are
canceled when the commission
decides to hold special meetings.
"I think we need to move, I real-
ly do," Branan said. "If we were
going to use general fund or
reserves, I'd be opposed to it. But
it's administrative impact fees. Let's
just do it."
"I have a tendency to change
my mind somewhat if impact fees
will cover it," Commissioner Floyd
Vanzant agreed.
"We need to give this building
back to the community," Commis-
sioners Jim B. Higginbotham said.
"Let's make a decision and get on
with life. We have other things to
deal with."
Commissioners will revisit the
issue at their regular meeting on
Wednesday at 9 a.m.

LANDFILL Continued from lA
move for some commissioners,*'
Branan said, before turning his
attention to Marshall. "You had
eight years that you sat there and
didn't raise that assessment."
Commission Chair Ansley
Acree quietly noted that Marshall
had tried to raise it two years ago.
"It was defeated." Acree said.
"Let's not backpedal."
"We're doing it just like a check-
book," Mahaney explained of his
review of the landfill. "Revenues
in, expenses out. How much do
we have left over? We've written
checks that we can't cover."
Advanced Waste Disposal has


canceled its,contract with Nassau
County and now dumps trash gath-
ered in Duval County in that coun-
ty. That means $300,000 budgeted
will not be received this year. The
landfill's cash flow is now project-'
ed to go $263,506 into the red in
August. -
"We're not meeting our projec-,
tions," Mahaney said. "The com-
mercial accounts are not coming to
us."
Mahaney warned Clay County,
which pays $3 million annually in
fees to dump its garbage in the
Nassau landfill, may pull out after
September 2006. That would leave
the landfill without out-of-
county customers for the first

time in 10 years.
"I have come up with scenar-
ios based on Clay County going
elsewhere, which they have indi-
cated they will do," Mahaney said.
"You won't need the size of the
staff or the equipment if that hap-
pens."
The good news is that with Clay
and Duval county trash removed
from the picture, the landfill is like-
ly to remain open past 2013, when
the last payment on its bond is due.
Commissioners have worried that
the landfill would be full years
before the bond was paid off.
Commissioners voted to put off
until Feb. 23 any decisions about
increasing assessments, returning
leased equipment, refinancing the
bond or limiting the landfill's
hours. The board did approve a
freeze that would reduce facility
staff through attrition as long as it
does not violate laws or union

agreements.
Mahaney said that by March, a
heavy equipment operator and a
spotter are expected to leave land-
fill jobs.
Mahaney said the tax collec-
tor's office has agreed to give the
county an advance on its annual
contribution.
He added that about $1.6 mil-
lion may also come from a landfill
capital reserve account.
Mahaney suggested that week-
day hours be limited in the after-
noons, since Clay County haulers
usually show up at 6 a.m. Some
commissioners lodged concerns
about limiting hours on Saturdays,
when many Nassau County resi-
dents bring their own trash.,
'"That is the only day" for some
people. MNarshall said. "If they can't
go to the landfill, they may throw
their garbage out in the woods."
"There's no question there will
be a reduction in the level of serv-
ice," MNlahanev said. "The question
is, is it worth keeping it open at sig-
nificant cost for the 15 people who
are coming out then?"
Clerk of Courts John Crawford
echoed Mahaney's call for speedy
action and supported the county
administrator's efforts.
'This is a mandate," Crawford
said. "This will help us survive until
the end of the (fiscal) year. I want
problem ydOu have in your lap at
this moment."

Lynch told police he was having
a drainage and flooding problem
that Beazer Homes was to address.
He could not be reached for fur-
ther comment.
Mike Sullivan, who lives next
door to Lynch, told police he heard
cutting noises but did not see who
cut the trees. He told policehe and
Beazer Homes had cut "several
damaged trees in the wetland area
directly behind his home from the
hurricanes in 2004."
He could not be reached for
comment, but his wife said a few
"huge cyprus trees" that fell during
i last year's storms were cut and
removed.
Rob Harris, a Beazer represen-
tative, told police "for the record"
that he and Beazer "would not be
involved in cutting down any trees
or other plant life as well as con-
ducting any landscaping activities in
the wetland areas."
But he told police "off the
record" that he was setting up and
maintaining a drainage ditch
behind the Lynch home and had
been "called out to take care of cut-
ting down trees and shrubs and for
drainage concerns in the wetland
area directly behind homeowner's
property."
Officer Jim Carey reported, "I

in the wetland area."
Harris could not be reached for
comment.
Two other neighbors told police
they heard cutting noises but did
not see who cut the trees. One of
those, Janet Devlin, told the News-
Leader she was walking behind the
Greater Fernandina Woman's Club
in late January when she heard
noise.
"I heard saws going and I saw
people back in there, and assumed
they were with the city," she said.
"It's such a beautiful place back
there. We're lucky to live on it,"
Devlin said. .




"I hope action is being taken
against whoever did it."
No action has been taken yet.
Carey reported he contacted
Sullivan, who is on the Seaside
Home Owners Association board,


-~ ISLAND



www.islandmassages-com


and suggested the association edu-
cate its members about the wet-
lands and restrictions on its use.
City Manager Bob Mearns said
he was just informed of the inci-
dent Wednesday, and the investi-
gation is continuing. Preoccupied
with Super Bowl planning, he said
he would address it next week.
Voit said all signage has not
been installed on the greenway
since the restoration project was
completed last year, but she hoped
it would not be necessary to post a
warning about cutting trees.
No motorized vehicles are
allowed on the greenway except
for parks, public safety, mosquito
control or authorized handicapped
vehicles, she said.
The greenway was established
after city voters approved a $6 mil-
lion bond issue for purchase of land
and amenities such as walking trails
and signage.
,The state Department of
Transportation cleared hundreds
of trees on the 88-acre segment of
the greenway between Atlantic and
Jasmine to restore it-from a fresh-
water wetlands to a salt marsh as
part of a mitigation project for a
road in Duval County.
The city of Fernandina Beach
issued a permit to the state to allow
removal of "plus 500" trees during
that project.
Seaside residents testified at
public hearings in June 2003 about
their concerns that the salt marsh
restoration would cause drainage
problems in their neighborhood.
Sunday, even at low tide, there was
more standing water between the
elevated walking trail and their
property line than between the trail
and Egans Creek. That apparently
is because the walking trail serves
as a dam and drains installed there
are higher than some of the sur-
rounding terrain.

GLENDA S. JENKINS

The city could offer electrical
service for about the same cost as
Florida Public Utilities (FPU) and
still make money, a consultant told
Fernandina Beach commissioners
Tuesday.
"You could be just as competi-
tive as they would be. I'm not sur-
prised at what we found in our
results," Jerry Warren said.
"There's no doubt I think that in
general terms, electric utilities are
money-makers," Warren said.
"There's over 2,000 municipal elec-
tric utilities out there. And by and
large they all do very well."
FPU, headquartered in West
Palm Beach, has stated the com-
pany is not for sale.
"We will vigorously resist any
attempts to be acquired," Chuck
Stein, company senior vice presi-
dent and chief operating officer,
told commissioners. "We are com-
mitted to providing quality electric
service at competitive prices ...

The Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA), Orlando Airports District Office on
January 4, 2005, issued a Finding of No
Significant Impact (FONSI) for the proposed
release of airport property for the construc-
tion of an access road to Crane Island at
Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport.
Copies of the FONSI are available for review
by the public at the following locations:

some of the lowest in the state. We
are committed to continue that.
But the city consultant said FPU
must put its shareholders' interest
first and will consider a purchase
offer if the city makes one. "Often
when people tell you something's
not for sale, it's a negotiating point,"
Warren said.
On Aug. 17, the commission
unanimously approved spending
$20,000 for a study to determine
the feasibility of acquiring FPU's
Amelia Island electrical services
operations. City Manager Bob
Mearns called the study "an
exploratory measure" to determine
if and at what price an acquisition
would be economically viable.
Warren, former general man-
ager of a regional utility system,
also served as senior vice presi-
dent for First Southwest Co., the
city's financial adviser. W.H.
Herrington of WHH Enterprises,
conducted the study with Warren.
"Based on our evaluation, we
have determined that acquisition
by the city of FPU's Amelia Island


(operations) makes economic
sense at the range of values we
have estimated for the FPU sys-
tem," WHH Enterprises wrote in a
Jan. 27 letter to Mearns.
FPU's wholesale power supply
agreement with the Jacksonville
Electric Authority (JEA), which
expires Dec. 31, 2007, is "current-
ly priced way under the market" at
an average of fewer than 3.5 cents
per kilowatt hour.
"'There's a lot of cities in Florida
that are pushing seven cents per
kilowatt hour on their wholesale
power supply," he said.
"Our suspicion is it's going to
go up significantly," he said,
explaining that an increase in
power supply costs is passed along
to the customers. "So it doesn't
affect the economics to the city."
FPU is a distribution utility,
meaning the company does not
generate electricity. Instead they
buy their power wholesale from
JEA and distribute it to their retail
customers throughout the city and
on Amelia Island.

OPINION


FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4,2005/News-Leader


Moral values
I am happy to see our county commissioners and
county attorney are proposing to write a law to restrict
or ban the evil Adam & Eve store from Nassau County
to protect my morals.
If successful, they could then write a law forbidding
alcohol sales in Nassau County. Alcohol consump-
tion contributes directly to alcoholism, drunk driving,
domestic violence and sometimes even "cruising."
Besides liquor stores, every supermarket, conven-
ience store and most restaurants sell alcohol in Nassau
County. (We could send these tax dollars to Duval
County or to Georgia.)
Next, gambling. It is evil and entices people to
spend money they may need for necessities thereby
encouraging fiscal irresponsibility. Let's ban the
Florida Lottery from Nassau County.
Next, maybe a dress code for our beaches. Some
of the attire (thongs and skimpy bikinis) worn by
women at our beaches are much too revealing and
provocative. I feel this extremely revealing attire is
detrimental to our moral values.
Richard F. Munns

Pray for us
Re: the "adult" establishment that is attempting to
open on ALA.,Although the majority of producers in
Hollywood and television would lead us to believe
that this so rt of merchandise is "adult," responsible
adults do not engage in this type of activity and enter-
tainment. The truth is that this is actually a way to lure
innocent minds into an addictive behavior so as to pro-
vide the owners and suppliers of these shops with
money. Itis the same motivation that drives the drug
dealer to sell drugs or the tobacco companies to sell
cigarettes, casinos for gamblers. Once a person is
addicted there.is a sure demand for the product.
There is already substantial information available
otq prove that this sort of material leads to hideous
crimes and deteriorates the community. Many of
those who have been victims of this mind-control-
ling addiction have testified to the damage it has done
to them and their families. There actually is a chem-
ical reaction in the brain when a person views pornog-
raphy.
SResponsible adults do not engage in this type activ-
ity. They are busy building communities, states and
a nation in which to raise their families in a moral,
healthy atmosphere. This is what we desire for our
community responsiblee adults are involved in build-
ing charadt~ in our youth, the future leaders of our
country. Responsible adults focus on others rather
than "What am I going to get out of it?"
I would not ignore the fact that there are those who
have already fallen into this trap and would like to get
out. There is hope. Jesus Christ died on the cross so
that we could be delivered of our sinful nature. Seek
Him with all your heart, soul and mind. He will deliv-
er you.
God's Word commands us, "Whatsoever things
.are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever
things are of good report, think on these things."
Philippians 4:8. God's word tells us how to protect our
mind. He has given us amazing minds., We nof'only
insult Him whenever we'allow anything to pollute
our minds, we break His heart. It is our choice what
we allow to take up residence in our mind by medi-
tating on it.
I pray for those in our community desiring a
healthy environment in which to raise this next gen-
eration. I pray for those already caught up in this
addictive behavior. I pray for those who are involved
in promoting this merchandise. I pray that they will
recognize it for its destructive nature. I pray that we
will seek God's wisdom and His love in all things.
Thank You.

business from opening and operating in our county?
America was founded on the idea that anyone can
open and operate a legitimate business. Creating a law
to prohibit them, or to force them to move some-
where else, is very un-democratic.
I can't understand the relationship between this
business and so-called "increases in crime." So I
guess we can have liquor stores all over the county,
which serve alcohol to people who could potentially
go out and commit a DUI, but no Adam & Eve? We can
have a gun store on South Eighth Street and even both
Wal-Marts in our area can legally sell rifles, which can
be used to commit a crime, but no Adam & Eve? To
me, Wal-Mart poses as a bigger threat to the com-
munity because they sell rifles, alcohol and call them-
selves "family oriented" than a small store that a
majority of people will not notice while they drive
down A1A.
How can just one store have an "adverse effect on
children and family values that are so strong in this
county"? No one is forcing you or your children to go
to that store. If you were watching your children like
you are supposed to, they wouldn't go to the store, and
even if they made it there, the person behind the
counter would ask for their I.D. If they were unable
to present an I.D. card, the person would ask the
people to leave the store and refuse to sell them what-
ever they decided to purchase.
All the county commissioners need to leave this
business alone because Adam & Eve's owners have
already threatened to take this law to court to chal-
lenge it, and it will definitely be struck down, leaving
the county commissioners with a black eye and we will
have,mounting legal bills. Such money can be used
for road improvements like on A1A, or Blackrock
Road, but our elected commissioners would rather
bow to pressure from religious groups and local busi-
nessmen than to actually stand up for something.
America is about freedom of choice, not about
force and threats of going to court.
Christopher Calderon
Fernandina Beach

What community standard?
There cannot be community standards when there
is so much controversy about the Adam & Eve store.
Obviously, two sides have differing views of what is
allowed and what is prohibited. This guarantees there
can be no standard that all in the community can
agree on. Hence, any attempt to create such a standard
will result in one group jamming their point of view
down the throats of the others. This is not a commu-
nity standard!
Nature provided us with a sex drive, for procre-
ation, enhancing loving feelings and enjoyment. If
this were not so, people would not be sexually respon-
sive other than a few times each year. Sexually ori-
ented material is therefore as natural as any other
products that we choose to use for our well-being. It
is only religion that has this hangup with sex. It is not
natural.
Mike Boyle (Jan. 31) lauds the early state legisla-
tures that had discriminatory statutes regarding who
was eligible for state office. I can't believe there are
still people who support such rampant discrimina-
tion. Perhaps he wishes to go back t0ohen teachers
were hired if they -.iub.-,-hrbd to the "ijght'! religious
beliefs.
It's a far stretch to say that there are people who
want to remove religion from their everyday lives.
First of all, this is impossible with all the church mar-
quees advertising their presence, bumper stickers
pronouncing the owner's particular belief, newspapers
that give a page to the religious readers, TV evan-
gelists and other religious broadcasts and so on.
What many people, religious and non-believers, want
is for the constitution to be upheld. This means a
complete separation of church and state. No prayers
at school board and city/county meetings. No "under
God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. A return to our
original national motto, not "in God we trust" and so
on.
The religious have wormed their way into many
facets of life that are secular in nature. Let's get back

First customer
I am getting sick of reading about this Adam & Eve
store. Instead of worrying about this store Nassau
County should be worrying about getting other things
done instead of wasting money on attorneys. This
store isn't going to raise crime as some of you say.
What raises the crime in this town is the fact the kids
here have nothing to do other than the movies. Where
is the skating rink or the bowling alley? What raises
the crime is that kids have nothing to do here other
than hang out on the streets and get into trouble. I
don't know about everyone else but I'm tired of driv-
ing to Jacksonville for everything. I actually think
this store is a wonderful idea for us not so old people
in this town that like to have fun with their husband
or wife who aren't afraid to go shopping for a little extra
fun. I like the idea that I don't have to go all the way
to West Jacksonville for this store. If you look at their
store in Jacksonville you can't even see in the windows,
it's not like you have someone standing outside with
a bunch of adult toys. When you walk in they ask for
I.D. you must be 21 or older to go in.
I just want Adam & Eve to know I am behind them
all the way and I hope to be the first customer. If you
don't like the store don't go in; it. I also think it's
ridiculous that Nassau County is trying to tell people
that aren't prudes what we can and cannot do as long
as we aren't breaking the laws nor hurting others -
what, do we have Big Brother watching us in this
state? Get real, folks. Worry about more important
things like a gym for schools, or how to decrease the
deficit in this town.

Not a candidate
Our beloved County Judge Bob Williams has decid-
ed to retire in 2006. I have had a number of people
urge me to run for the vacant seat I have told many
people that I intended to run. However, recent events
have caused me to re-evaluate that decision.
When the issue arose concerning whether the
Adam & Eve adult business or similar businesses
should be allowed into our community, I spoke open-
ly and sincerely from my heart as to the very real dan-
gers I believe would accompany such businesses. I
gave no thought as to the ramifications of my opinions
on a judicial race that I could not yet officially quali-
fy for. ;
There have been those that have said that openly
talking about morality and religion would doom any
chances of success before the race even began. Others
have stated that it was a "stroke of genius" to take on
the porno industry and that I would be the benefici-
ary of free publicity and would surely capture the
majority of the "religious vote." I have been severely
offended by those that suggested that the only reason
I took such a public stance was to promote myself for
the future election.
Let me assure you that my intention in expressing
.nmy-qpinios and vowing- to fight against the pres-
.ence f .-.mixu llv oriented business wiLh haiLton
resources at my disposal had nothing to do with any
hidden agenda or self promotion. I have been referred
to in a number of letters to the editor as the so-called
"Christian lawyer." First of all, let me tell you that if
you intend to insult me, you are going to have to do
a lot better than calling me a Christian. Second, the
only relevance to my profession was that I pledged the
resources of my law firm in the fight against these
businesses and the accompanying crime and other
detrimental effects that always follow them.
My greatest concern is the fact that I intended to
run for judge may take attention away from the real
problem at hand. For all of these reasons, I will not be
a candidate for county judge in 2006. You can rest
assured that any and all opinions I express about
Adam & Eve or any other social issue are from the
heart and not intended for political gain.

Lingerie has been stocked, and Adam & Eve
is expected to open soon on AlA in O'Neil.

In a judicial race, the candidates are not allowed to
express an opinion about anything. I realize that is one
rule I would probably routinely break anyway as I
believe it to be ridiculous. I do not understand why in
any other type of election the public can ask for a can-
didate's opinion on any issue under the sun. However,
in a judge's race you cannot find out how the candi-
dates feel about anything. So, you are voting for a per-
son that can change your very life and you have no
right to know anything about them except their expe-
rience and family information. All you folks that are
speaking out about freedom of speech may want to
attack that problem next.

Judge not lestye be judged
It is sad when we as Christians are sinners saved
by grace (The Grace of God) take it upon ourselves
to judge anyone (Judge not lest you be judged your-
self). There is none righteous, no, not one. All have
sinned and come short of the Glory of God.
The Word of God tells sinners who have been
saved by the Grace of God to go forth with the Word
of God witnessing about His love and way of salvation.
to those who are lost.
There is not a verse in His word where God tells
us to condemn or judge anyone. Let me put forth a
question, are you witnessing daily? Telling people
the plan of God's salvation?
Are you a disciple of Christ, disciplining young
Christians?
I find myself falling way short in living a true;
Christ-centered life.
Thank God almighty He does not condemn me. He
loves me even in my feeble sinful life.
Why not let the dead bury the dead?
You have life eternal; spend all your energy winning
the lost, not condemning them.
Why not share the good news with others. Telling
them of God's forgiveness and love.
Put your effort to the real task and be God's wit-
ness. He does not condemn anyone. Why should we?
The crowd, at the event of the woman who was
caught in the act of adultery, wanted Jesus to condemn
her and have her stoned.
He stooped and wrote in the sand, stood and said,
"You who are without sin, cast the first stone."
Jesus said to the woman who was caught in the act
of adultery, "Woman where are your accusers?" Read
his answer to her in John Chapter 8:3-11. Also read

and God will reward you at the judgment seat of
Christ where Christians will be judged according to,
their works done by them as they were led by Christ.
My friend, you and I are sinners saved from the
penalty of sin (once and for all) by Jesus' death on the
cross, and saved today from the power of sin, (if we
only. could live about it) and one day soon, when
Jesus returns, or if you should be called home before,
we shall be saved from the presence of sin! Praise God!
Until then, be a witness not a condemned.
Love in Christ.
To my brothers and sisters in Christ and to all
my fellow men and women who have not yet tasted;
the love and affection He has waiting for you. John.

COMMUNITY THANKS

Incredibly fortunate
As a federally funded program, Peck Head Start
relies on parents and community members to donate
time, energy and supplies to make each year a suc-
cess. So far this school year, we have been incredibly
fortunate to have outstanding support from Nassau
County residents and community agencies. I would
like to mention some of the great people and organ-
izations that have helped to make a difference in the
lives of 40 wonderful children.
SWinn-Dixie of Fernandina, especially Ms. Tammy,
who has donated gift cards for parent meetings and
events. First Coast Community Bank provided us
with the transportation money for an intergenera-
tional grant with the Nassau County Council on
Aging. We had a generous anonymous donor that
provided each of our families with a turkey for
Thanksgiving. During December we participated in
the Lighted Christmas Parade sponsored by the
Southside Neighborhood Association. Vernetta
Spaulding and Louryne Spaulding extended the invi-
tation to our Head Start center, and we thank them
for being able to participate in such an exciting event
We wouldn't have made it into the parade if not for the
enthusiastic help of Atlantic Auto Brokers. The gen-
tlemen there were so kind and willing to help out
every way they could. Eddie Wright and, Carol.
Higginbotham loaned us a trailer for the children to
dWe fa@ttdide iUrdurift dfe,-.#ai^9rAOWart bf &
Fernandina was gracious enough to donate decora-
tions for out center during the holiday season. Our
families enjoyed the holidays thanks to the big-heart-
ed donations ofTherese Zamoiski and the Decorative
Artists of Jacksonville, K-mart of Fernandina, St
Michael's Auxiliary. Amelia Island Plantation chapel,
First National Bank, Sea Grove Homeowners
Association. St Michael's Preschool, Fernandina
Beach Middle School Beta club and advisor Erica
Anderson, Amelia Island Montessori School, Nassau
County Volunteer Center and Gail Schultz, Ms. Judy
Easterly, Jane Watt, Pat and Colson Hillier, Nichole
Dougherty, Renee Santillo and the staff of Child-
Find;, Nassau County Home and Community
Education Club and the Nassau County Council on
Aging.
All of these wonderful people and organizations
have donated items to our center for the holidays. A
years round supporter of Peck Head Start is Gail.
Schults of the Nassau County Volunteer Center. Gail
has been a strong advocate for Head Start in our
community throughout the year; our children have
benefited from her many donations. Peck Head Start
is also privileged to have community members that
volunteer in the classroom on a regular basis. Our fan-
tastic volunteers include Jane Preston, Joan Cipriano,
Judy Easterly, Chuck Russo, Jane Watt, Barbara
Murdoch and Carol Mariani. If I have left anyone out,
please know that on behalf of Peck Head Start, we
thank you for all that you have done for us. Last and
certainly not least, I would like to thank the parents
for being so involved in their children's lives. You all
help make a difference!

Ooh Rah Nassau County
'The Marines would like to thank you for your sup-.
port on a fantastically successful Toys for Tots cam-
paign! The Marine Corps League of Nassau County
recently concluded their toy distribution to aide less
fortunate children in Nassau County. Allen Elefterion,
the coordinator for Nassau County, says that this
community reminds him of how Marines took care
of each other in the Corps. Everyone worked togeth-
er and nobody was left behind.
Well, every family who needed assistance
received help this year 917 children received toys
that would have otherwise gone without The success
was only due to the outpouring of support by a car-
ing community in toy donations, cash donations,
supplies, use of facilities, community sponsored
events and the many volunteers it takes to collect,
sort and distribute the toys. Whether it was our local
churches, community groups, retailers or golfers
in the Toys for Tots tournament, people in our com-
munity simply care and that is refreshing to wit-
ness. If you helped, and judging by the results you
probably did, you helped us deliver a brighter

paper Jan. 19 dealing with salaries that are
being paid to Nassau County employees.
The lead story dealt with the fact that
there are 122 school employees who earn more than
$50,000 annually, and the second one focused on the
"concern" that some residents had regarding the
$77,500 salary for the new chief deputy for the clerk
of court's office.
I, for one, was pleasantly surprised to learn that
educators in our community are being compensated
with wage levels that are starting to recognize the
critical role teachers play in our community. In
many cases (perhaps most), children will spend
more waking hours with their teachers than they will
with their parents. (I can already hear some teachers
say, "Waking hours? You haven't been in my class-
room lately!")
But even that $50,000 figure needs some clarifica-
tion. As Superintendent John Ruis points out,
salaries in that range are usually earned by teachers
who have 25 to 30 years of teaching experience. All
of them have bachelor degrees, and many have
advanced degrees in their specialty. It should also be
noted that of the 122 school employees earning
more than $50,000, less than half (only 57) of them
are teachers. And of those 57 individuals, 52 of them
are clustered between $50,200 and $51,500. You
must also realize that in each of these cases the
salary includes supplemental incomite for supervising
extracurricular activities (i.e., the drama club, the art
club, the French club):
,To be fair, these teachers are on 10-month con-
tracts, which many citizens feel allows them the
opportunity to have a second job during the two
summer months. But as my mother (who retired as
a high school teacher in the 1960s at the lofty salary
of $7,000) would say, "What kind of job could I find
for two months in the summer? I'm really not cut out
for lawn maintenance." The reality was that my
mother, like most professional educators, used those
months to review the last year's issues and prob-
lems, to develop newlesson plans and assignments


Sadler Road hotel
City management has been put on a course of
expanding its commercial tax base, unfortunately, in
some cases, to the detriment of residents.
Thus we residents actually pay the costs for the
destruction of our concept of community. We, citizens
only, have to make these decisions, and it can't be
done through apathy, indifference, or ignorance, of
how the democratic process works. It means real par-
ticipation in the process, not reading about it after
the fact in the News-Leader. Indifference is counted as
an assenting vote, period. That's a reality in any democ-
racy, not just in Fernandina Beach.
We are at a crucial crossroads in terms of a total
altering of our community, if one reads the upcoming
Planning Advisory Board agendas. We need to take a
moment away from our golf, mah-jongg, bridge games,
whatever, and figure out how the destiny of our com-
munity is being radically changed by increasing the
coninl&iAlttftiaf&.'1o6tind Yesiderits have general-
munity is going to non-resident, nion-voter, develop-
ment interests. They are virtually the only ones with
a "presence" at Planning Advisory Board hearings.
A specific case that concerns us all, and particularly
those of us who live south of Sadler Road, is the pro-
posal to build a three-story, 83-room hotel just west of
the Cedar River restaurant The notion is to make a sec-
ond attempt to change the C-I zoning (low density,
neighborhood friendly) nature of Sadler Road, to trade
off those "bad" wetlands for "better" wetlands some-
where up on the St. Marys River, have a well-lighted
asphalt parking lot at 11 feet elevation above sea level.
Most homes south of Fletcher are well below that, with
adjacent homes at 10.1-10.4 feet elevation. (I don't think
that the city has a plan to put pumping stations in our
backyards.)
This Planning Advisory Board quasi-judicial hear-
ing is scheduled for Wednesday at 6 p.m. at City Hall
and the public is invited to give their input.

Teacher salaries
Yes, to the letter writer of ('Teacher salaries," Voice
of the People, Jan. 26), it should be more than a pass-
ing interest that your child's teachers are subjectto the
completion of advanced degrees and additional certi-
fications in order to be paid $50,000 per year of more
for a 10-month contract. It's your obligation to your
child to know.
It is also in your interest to know that there are
many occupations out there that don't require half of
those qualifications for a salary more than that. If you
begrudge a teacher who has put in 25 or 30 years of
educating America, constantlytaking classes (at their
own expense) to maintain certification and remain
current in their field, putting in extra time with.student
activities and sometimes taking more ofavested inter-
est in children than their parents, then I have some
interesting facts for you.
Ask any teacher why they became a teacher and I
challenge you to find one to reply, "For the salary."
Some of us may reply, "So I can spend more time with
my family" which may be true since the majority of us
don't have to travel very far and most times we are
home with them on holidays and summer vacations.
However, the notion that a teacher's job starts at 8 a.m.
and ends at 3 p.m. or is only a 10-month position is a
fallacy. During those two months that we "don't work"
most of us are poring over new or updated material,
rewriting curriculums, attending classes or workshops
(again paid by us), teaching summer programs or
pursuing even more advanced degrees' (again paid
for by us). Personally, my kids would love for Mom to
have all summer "off," but they know most teachers
-are too dedicated to not take the time and chance to
improve.
Question a teacher about those standardized tests.
We don't like them, either. We didn't have them when
we went to Florida schools and they say the education
was better back then. It wasn't the teachers who decid-
ed to make these mandatory; it was the lawmakers in
Tallahassee you elected who have probably never
been in a classroom with your kids.
Can a teacher pass a standardized test you ask? It's
common knowledge we have to. It's called certification
and each teacher must go through this process. Each
subject area has its own test. Many teachers in this
county have passed quite a few of these tests (that we
pay for ourselves). In fact I have passed five of them.
Could I pass one more? Bring it on.
I would like to invite the letter writer to come and
teach my classes (that's 150 teenagers) for a day. Then
well test them and see what she has (theoretically)
taught them. Maybe then well be able to see why


for the upcoming class year and
to just "recharge the batteries"
following a physically and men-
tally challenging 10 months.
But if you believe the
S $50,000 salary mark is worthy
of our attention, then there are
> others within our county gov-
ernment that deserve the same
scrutiny. For example, did you
know that the average base
Mike Boyle salary for a county firefighter is
$42,869, while the average base
-"- salary for a county rescue offi-
WAITA cer is $49,632? But when you
MINUTE add in overtime benefits, the
average jumps to $54,416 for
firefighter and $62,292 for res-
cue personnel. The actual figures show 30 of the 44
fire department employees (68 percent), and 29 of
the 44 rescue department employees (66 percent),
made over $50,000 during the last fiscal year.
And for those still troubled by the $77,500 salary
for a chief deputy in the clerk's office, which over-
sees and coordinates a $110 million county budget,
are you aware there are 10 employees in the
fire/rescue department who made over $70,000 last
year? Please note, I am not criticizing or passing
judgment on any of these individuals or the salaries
they receive. Having spent a career in public serv-,
ice, I know first-hand that pay is only one of the
many factors that should be considered when evalu-
ating the "value" of a department or an employee.
The same is true in Nassau County.
Do I believe the deputy clerk is a greater overall
"value" to our citizens based on the financial respon-
sibilities of his office as compared to a county fire-
fighter or rescue officer? Absolutely! Unless, of
course, I'm the one that's trapped in a car after a bad
accident, or it's my house that's on fire and I'm
trapped inside. Under those conditions I'm pretty
sure I will be much happier to see the arrival of
fire/rescue personnel rather than representatives


Figures show 30 of44 county fire
employees and29 of44 county
rescue employees made over $50,000
during the last fiscal year

from the clerk's office. And I know I won't think
they are overpaid if they save my life or the life of a
family member. The same comparison goes for rep-
resentatives from our law enforcement agencies that
have the opportunity to stop criminals from attack-
ing me.
For at least the past year, residents have begun
to learn that Nassau County is facing some serious
financial problems. With new constitutional officers
and commissioners taking their places in our county
government, many of us are anxious to have the
problems resolved so that we can concentrate on
the current issues of increasing traffic, overdevelop-
ment and an inadequate infrastructure. But despite
stories to the contrary, we didn't get to this point
overnight, and it would be naive to believe we will
dig ourselves out in only a few months. "Quick
fixes" are one of the reasons we are in our current
predicament, and similar solutions will not bring
long-term stability.
We should remember this when developers
agree to "not only provide the land for new fire sta-
tions, but we'll also build them for you." That's a
great start, but who's going to pay the $500,000 for
the actual equipment, as well as the annual salaries
that could surpass another $500,000 each year for
each new station?
So as our elected officials begin to grapple with
the financial problems facing our community, I urge
them to study the "causes," not just the symptoms.
Salaries alone, I suspect, may be the latter.

A treasure in trash
Toward the end of December, in the midst of all our
holiday festivities, I accidentally threw out a very spe-
cial envelope from my parents while sitting at my
desk paying bills. I had not opened the envelope and
had no idea what was inside. The next day, after look-
ing everywhere for hours, I realized that it must be in
the trash. I went outside to check but it had just been
picked up. I felt awful!
I called on a long shot to Stateline Disposal and
spoke with a great girl (there are two Stephanies
working there, both were great!) who hooked me up
with Lee Pickett, director of the West Nassau landfill.
I met Mr. Pickett at the entrance in Callahan and we
drove to the back to the newest trash site. I have to be
honest, I was expecting something totally different!
From the entrance to the site there were beautiful
big trees, a forest Streams and ponds, animals and no
.garbage. And then of course we turned a corner and
there it was miles and miles of trash, it seemed to
go on forever!
There were maybe six or so Stateline employees
dumping their loads and of course to watch that crazy'
lady go through trash to find a little purple envelope.
There was also Mr. Pickett and two of his employees.
My driver told me.I was lucky because my trash was
picked up first, so he could pinpoint where my trash
might be located. My area seemed to be about 10 feet
long and 10 feet high and 10 feet wide! I know this may
not be accurate but it sure did seem huge! I slowly
started to pick at bags with two fingers and was told,
"Darlin' you gotta rilo them bags open!" That was my
icebreaker, and I felt a little more empowered.
Some nice gentleman handed me some super-
duper thick rubber gloves. A huge thanks to the glove
man! Mr. Pickett and his two employees helped me
pick through trash, and I was so thankful. It is amaz-
ing what people throw away and what we spend our
money on." We looked for white bags with red handles
for a long time, then we found a catalog of mine. After
about 30 minutes or so we found a bag with my dis-
carded desk trash and folded up inside was a little pur-
ple envelope with my name on it amazing!
I think those guys were just humoring me in the
beginning and were probably a little surprised when
we actually found it. They allowed me to throw away
my shoes(since I had been wading waist-high in trash)
and to wash up with soap and water. They were great!
My main reason for writing is to stress the amaze-
ment I had at the efficiency, helpfulness, kindness,
humor and beauty of the West Nassau Landfill and the
people who run and take care of it, especially Mr.
Pickett! What an awesome and interesting experience
I have had!

Obscene policy
I am a freshman at Fernandina Beach High School.
Just this year they have started a rule stating that if you
obtain six or more unexcused absences in a particu-
lar class, you automatically receive a failing grade
(50=F) for that class.
' Ifyou are late a certain number of times to a class,
you are counted absent for that class even though
you still showed up. Does it seem fair for the school
to completely eliminate your hard-earned grades,
despite the hard labor and effort you put into achiev-
ing them? I think not!
In my opinion, they should create a different way
of punishing those students who deserve to have a fail-
ing grade. I have been told that it is not a big deal. It
is indeed a big deal. I don't feel it necessary for the
school to take away my grades as a way to penalize me
for not showing up.
Many students have dropped out of Fernandina
Beach High School because of this six-day rule. Also,
many have chosen to go to the Academy. Teachers and
faculty should be encouraging students to stay in
school and get the education that they are entitled to
and that they will need in the near future.
The school board should consider taking a less
destructive approach to reprimanding students who
miss school, such as administering more detentions or
mandatory community service hours. When we do not
show up for class, we are not hurting anyone but our
education and ourselves. The school board is only
adding insult to injury when attempting to give stu-
dents failing grades in place of their own. In my view,
this entire policy is obscene.

Make a child's voice heard, volunteer for GAL


A young man no more then 18 years
old sits alone in the hospital waiting room;
a nurse comes out and tells him he is a
father. She tells him more; his baby has
severe medical problems: This is his sec-

child's mother'.
The young mother holds her baby, a
baby that will need lots of medical atten-

father and she doesn't plan to be.
Flash forward, the court is considering
the termination of the parental rights of
these two seemingly irresponsible par.
ents. The baby is in a medical foster
home, a home that can deal with its spe-
cial needs. The judge looks at the young
parents the mother Is pregnant with a

a face that child comes to trust. -
This is not an exaggerated situation, in
fact, is very close to an actual case. There
are happy endings. After many months of'
investigation and interviews with family
members; it was recommended that a
grandparent be granted custody of the
special needs baby. With a grandparent's
love and the input of the Guardian Ad
Litem this story ended happily. The child
is happy, safe and loved.
Who steps up for this very special kind
of volunteer work? People who want that
child's voice heard and for that child to
have a chance for a happy, successful life.
Often it is teachers and nurses. It can be
someone that has a full-time job or retired.
Couples do it together.
It takes a very special person, but
requires less then you might think. Once..
accepted (completed application, back.
ground investigation, two character refer'
ences and 30 hours of training) a GAL
becomes a child's advocate, gathering


information, interviewing, investigating,
submitting reports to the case workers
and court, monitoring that all court orders
and interventions are carried out and act-
ing as a party to the case and spokesper-
son for the child.
The current scoreboard does not look
good. There are 72 cases in Nassau
County that require Guardian Ad Litems.
There are 29 volunteers, some handling
multiple cases. There are 43 cases not
assigned. That means 43 children with no
voice in their future. The numbers can-
change and do every Wednesday in family
court.
The program needs volunteers.
Training will be offered in Nassau County
Feb. 14, 15, 16, 17 at the Barnabas Center.
Call (904) 630-1200 for more information.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4,2005/News-Leader


RELIGION


Honor God by showing love to an angry world


T he reports we had
received about the
restaurant were obvi-
ously correct because it
was very crowded. In fact, the
only open booth was in the back
near the pinball machines, which
is why I imagine it was available.
We sat and enjoyed pleasant
conversation, but after about 15
minutes we wondered if the
restaurant staff had seen us
enter. Since there was a buffet, I
reasoned that this was the only
service available, but I thought to
confirm this with one of the busy
waitresses. She indicated it was
no problem to order off the
menu, but then hurried along her


way back to
the kitchen.
S After sev-
eral more
minutes, we
Seasoned
there must
be a code
word for
service
Conrad which we
Sharps didn't have,
and our
patience was
PULPIT running out
NOTES At times like
this it's easy
to become angry, and I have to
confess I was well on my way.


Just then however, the very same
waitress who had answered my
question caught my eye and she
realized what had happened.
Despite her hurriedness, she
had to be one of the most pleas-
ant waitresses we've ever had.
Her apology and her sweet spirit
diverted the misgivings we had
briefly harbored. I detected in her
wisdom beyond her tender years.
She possessed a spirit of humility
and patience that was engaging.
By the time we finished our meal
I knew that in the future her intu-
itive patience and humility should
be for me a model, even toward
.those whom I have offended with-
out malice or intent.


In Proverbs 19:11 reads, "A
man's wisdom gives him patience;
it is to his glory to overlook an
offense." Every human being will
be faced in life with situations
that disturb us and stir within us
the emotion of anger. Anger that
is not dealt with in a positive
Christ-like manner, however, is
displeasing to God and endan-
gers our emotional, spiritual and
even physical well-being.
Anger is an emotion that will
escalate out of control if we do
not seek God's help and the lead-
ing of the Holy Spirit directing us
toward forgiveness and reconcili-
ation. Anger is a sin because it
defies God's command to love


one another.
The teachings of Jesus are
very clear on this. "You have
heard that it was said to people
long ago, 'Do not murder, and any-
one who murders will be subject to
judgment.' But I tell you that any-
one who is angry with his brother
will be subject to judgment.
Therefore, if you are offering your
gift at the altar and there remem-
ber that your brother has some-
thing against you, leave your gift
there in front of the altar First go
and be reconciled to your brother;,
then come and offer your gift."
(Matthew 5:21-22a, 23)
The ability to turn away from
anger and confrontation is a spiri-


tual discipline that I pray people
of faith would demonstrate to our
angry world today. When we
withhold our angry words and
temper our responses in dis-
agreeable situations, we begin to
witness to our world an even
greater love than our own: the
love of God made known in Jesus
Christ!
"A new command Igive you:
Love one another As I have loved
you, so you must love one another
By this all men will know that you
are my disciples, if you love one
another" (John 13:34, 35)
The Rev. Conrad C. Sharps is
pastor of First Presbyterian Church
in Fernandina Beach.

St. Michael Academy



dedicates new addition


SUBMITTED
The Most Rev. Victor Galone, bishop of the St. Augustine
Diocese, which includes Fernandina Beach, blesses one of the
new classrooms in the St. Michael Academy addition. Among
those attending the dedication were, front row from left, below,
Patricia Tierney, Diocese Superintendent of Catholic Schools,
Sister Elizabeth Dunn, principal of the academy from 1999 to
2004, and.Sister Martha Rohde, present principal.


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader

St. Michael Academy celebrat-
ed Jan. 28 another milestone in the
history of the school a large
and beautiful addition to the orig-
inal building. The new addition will
house grades 6; 7 and 8.
The Most Rev. Victor Galeone,
bishop of St. Augustine Diocese
which includes this parish,
presided over the dedication cer-
emony and blessing of the build-
ing.
The original building contained
a convent, chapel and school and
was completed in 1882. It was
named St. Joseph's Academy, and
provided housing for several
Sisters of St. Joseph who had
arrived in 1871 from the mother-
house of their order in Le Puy,
France. Their role was mainly
directed toward teaching the chil-
dren of the freed slaves, but soon
expanded to all children of vari-
ous backgrounds, race and faith.
The school, later renamed St.
Michael's Academy when it was
annexed to the church, closed its
doors in 1971.
When the Rev. Mark Waters
was. assigned to the parish in the
late '90s he arrived with a dream;
the renovation of the school build-
ing and re-establishment of a high
quality educational program in a
Christian environment. It was a
monumental undertaking, for the
building was in disrepair, and many
major changes had to be made to
comply with ADA requirements
and other contemporary needs.
The restoration began in 1997 and
reopened in 1999, under the lead-
qrship of three nuns of the
Sinsinawa Dominican Order,
Sisters Elizabeth Dunn. Martha
Rohde and Barbara Becker.
The school flourished, a new
grade.was added each year, and it
soon became evident that more
classrooms would be needed if the
school %as to accommodate its
goal to educate preschool through
eighth graders.
Now, the years of planning, con-
sulting and fund-raising have made
this goal a reality under the lead-
ership of the current pastor, the
Rev. Brian Eburn. The addition,
which includes an art and music
room and a conference room in
adfi|tioa,to classrooms, blends so -
twit ith the originalbuilding that
observers are hard-pressed to
determine where the centuries-old
building ends and the new begins.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2005 AROUND TOWN News-Leader


HILDA Continued from 8A
Freeman; the Rev. William Heiser, music/youth min-
ister. -
The Rev. Neal Thompson, pastor of North
Hilliard Baptist Church, begins his news with a ques-
tion: "Have you ever had a really wonderful day in
the Lord? I know that you have had those days and
that you stay on a natural high. On Jan. 16, our
church had a wonderful day. It started with our ,
Brotherhood going to a breakfast at Oceanway
Assembly of God. The guest speaker was Ken
Amaro from Channel 12 News. The men were really
blessed by his presence. The second thing that hap-
pened was a marvelous trip for our children and
youth. Our children and youth leaders took them out
for a bowling trip and pizza. They had a wonderful
time of fellowship. The final event of the day was
John Thomas and his group 'Pure Heart' They are
always a wonderful blessing with the music that they
sing.
"On Jan. 24, our WMU ladies attended the first
annual ladies conference at River Road Baptist
Church. This was sponsored by Billie Corlie
Ministries, Inc. They had a marvelous time in the
events and fellowship and hope to attend next year.
"Our CMA ride group did a great event on the
same day. They joined up with several CMA ride
groups and rode to Lake City to the Veterans
Residential Home. They carried small packages for
the men and women veterans who were living there.
They were truly blessed with our visit and small
packages. We should always remember the duties
that these veterans did for our country. We also need
to remember the men and women who are defend-
ing us right now. Remember what Jesus said in
Matthew 24:6. 'And ye shall hear of wars and rumors
of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these
things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.'
"Brother Steve Wolgamott of Live Oak and I are
going to have a joint revival that will run from March
5-9. We will start out with a banquet on March 5 at.
Live Oak Baptist Church. On March 6, the guest
preacher will preach at North Hilliard Baptist that
morning. The remainder of the revival will be at Live
Oak Baptist Church. In the fall of this year, the
events will be reversed.and North Hilliard will host
the revival. Please be in prayer for our churches that
many will come to know Christ We need to be like
the song 'Send a Great Revival.'


"I would like for everyone to pray for two of our
men who have decided to go into seminary. These
men are Ricky Hurst and Clint Hoffman. The Lord
has really touched their lives and this is not going to
be an easy road for them. They are going to attend
the seminary that I attended and that is Jacksonville
Theological Baptist Seminary led by the late Dr.
Vernon Johns.
"We lost one of our dear members last week,
Barbara Bauer. When I started visitation in Hilliard, I
met this wonderful lady. She was always blessing
and knew that some day that she would join Jesus in
heaven. I have baptized several of her grandchildren.
I know that she is happy in heaven and I will get to
see her one day. Please keep her family in your
prayers.
"We need to always remember that we should
keep doing great works for the Lord. We should not
stop until he comes for us. 'But watch thou in all
things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangel-
ist, make full proof of thy ministry.' 2 Timothy 4:5."
Attention! On Feb. 17, the Senior Adult Luncheon
of the Northeast Florida Baptist Association will be
hosted by GardenView, Jacksonville, at 10:30 a.m.

The Senior Adult Valentine banquet of First
Baptist Church, Callahan, is Saturday at 7 p.m. in
their spacious Family Life Center. Seniors always
look forward to this special evening!
Their mission trip to The Point Church, New
Brunswick, NJ., was Jan. 18-20. The Purpose -
"Evangelism for Opening Day Services." Team
Leaders were the Rev. Rodney Coe and Guy Purvis.
The Rev. Lynn Hyati is their longtime devoted
pastor. The Rev. Rodney Coe is their newest staff
member as singles pastor and counselor; Todd Carr,
youth; Tom Tyre, children's ministry; Cliff Ryan,
church administrator; Mark Stewart, music minister.
Another new members reception on Jan. 23 at
First Baptist Church, Fernandina Beach, was held


immediately following the 6:30 evening worship
service. Food and fellowship!
Women on Mission/Sisterhood Groups were call-
ing all "Bag Ladies" for Jan. 24, beginning at 9:30
a.m. to the fellowship hall of the church. They were
sewing bags for Micah's Place and jail ministry
assembly line-style. They were needing help measur-
ing, cutting, pressing and sewing! For more informa-
tion, contact Lana Allan at 753-2293.
Beginning Jan. 9, discipleship class at 5 p.m.

Great About Heaven" was the topic. Additional class-
es "Living Beyond Yourself: Exploring the Fruit of

Missionaries who serve in Honduras, "The
George Johns," were speaking at First Baptist down-
town Jan. 16. They always have many interesting
things to talk about
Senior pastor is the Rev. Jeff Overton; Mike Reed
is associate pastor/music minister; Rob Hudelson is
associate pastor/youth minister.
Investing in the youth of Springhill Baptist
Church. John Mercer, interim part-time student pas-
tor, reflects: "Recently, I found someone with whom I
share a great deal of common ground. He is S.
Truett Cathy, founder of Chik-Fil-A. No, I'm not a
grandfather and I didn't invent the chicken sand-
wich, but we do share a basic philosophy about peo-
ple. In his book, It's better to Build Boys than Mend
Men, Cathy relates stories of his personal invest-
ment in the lives of young people. This passion has
driven him not only to financially support foster par-
ent programs, but also to teach a Sunday school
class full of 13-year-old boys. Why would someone
who has experienced such success in life give so
much of his time and energy to children that are not
his own? It seems that somewhere along the way he
discovered the incredible returns that your invest-
ment can pay in the life of a young person.
"I've been actively involved in ministry since age
15. It's a messy business. You quickly learn that all
people have all sorts of problems. Very often the
issues we face as adults can be directly linked to h.)ur
experience as children and teenagers. Truett Cathy
is correct, it is easier to "Build Boys than to Mend
Men.'
"This is exactly what we are attempting to do with


our student ministries at Springhill. We are building
into the lives of young people. It's much more than
teaching a Sunday school class or chaperoning a
youth trip. Our goal is to invest our lives in the lives
of others, walking alongside them, not merely as a
teacher, but as a friend and as a mentor. This is hard
work, but it is a blast." The Rev. Jackie Hayes is pas-
tor; Rick Lee, associate pastor; Betty Ann Sparkman,
worship leader.
Memorial United Methodist Church has a new
chapter in its ministry to young adults. On Jan. 21,
our own Caf6 Nexus had its grand opening. The cafe6
is an exciting new coffee house ministry that will
open every Friday evening (for ages 18 and up) in
the youth room under the sanctuary at 7 p.m. Well
have coffee, cappuccino, espresso and refreshments
for sale. The music will be cool. On the Jan. 28, we
had engaged Monk and Neagle (a great band with a
new CD).
The Caf6 Nexus committee is pleased to
announce that we have hired Robbie Bachman to be
our caf6 ministries director. Robbie is a college-aged
member of our congregation who brings many gifts
suited to this unique new ministry. He has spent the
last year volunteering with our middle school min-
istry. We are excited to have Robbie on board and
ask the congregation to keep him and the Caf6
Nexus program in your prayers. The Rev. Bruce
Jones is pastor of this church. Director of youth min-
istry is Mike Alexander. Beth Jurovcik is director of
music ministry. MUMC is located at 601 Centre
Street, downtown Fernandina Beach.
The big news for 2005 is that we, the First
Presbyterian Youth Ministry, will go on our first-ever
international mission trip to Vancouver, British
Columbia. We are sending a team of 25 youth and
adults to be a witness to Jesus Christ in a part of the
world desperately in search of the truth.
Our ministry is just not possible without the help.
love and support of the entire congregation. In case
we haven't told you lately, thanks for giving us a
place to be (and taking care of it), thanks for giving
us the means to do all that we do, thanks for the
food, the prayers, and, most of all, thanks for loving
the young people of the church just the way they are!
The Rev. Conrad Sharps is senior pastor; the Rev.
Hope Lee, associate pastor; the Rev. John Harland.
parish associate.
"May Our Great Heavenly Father continue to
watch over us and keep us in His loving care."

300-pound lineman
was uncommon in
the NFL. Players of
that size were a precious
commodity. In 1985,
America fell in love with the
Chicago Bears' William
"The Refrigerator" Perry.
One of only five players in
the league over 300 pounds.
he was a lovable guy, but
also somewhat of an oddity,
given the fact lihat Ih was so
large but was also fairly
.aile fir someone so freak-
ishly lari.i. Car rIying his
It.un :o' Super Bowl title,
he became a phenomenon.
Now he would be run of the
mill, for there are so many
guys now his size. He would
Ilidl hhusel1'jusl filling in.
According to ESPN.com
when Bill Clinton was elect-
ed president in 1992, there
were only 7) players in the
NFL who tipped the scales
at 300 pounds. Now, that
number has grown with 455
players in the league who
belter that mark. The aver-
age weight of that Bears line
was 274, while average
weight of a lineman at the
2004 NFL Pro Bowl was 317
pounds. At this year's Super
Bowl, one of four lineman
cracks the 300-pound barri-
er. The Patriots have 12 and
the Eagles having 11 with
349-pound tackle Tra
Thomas the largest.
While that added bulk
may be good for the team, it
is certainly not good for the
body. The added weight
puts added stress on the.
body with an increased risk
of heart disease, hyperten-
sion,,diabetes,;stroke, sleep
apnea and degenerative
arthritis.
From an orthopedic per-
spective, carrying all that
weight is just too much over
the long term for the joints,
especially the knees, to han-
dle. The player may have
more muscle and fat with a
resultant increase weight,
but the cartilage that lines
the joint does not increase
in its thickness. Therefore it
just has to simply bear the
heavier burden, and it wears
out faster. Joint replace-
ments are often the end
result.
A study by the NFL
showed that its players are
five times more likely to suf-
fer from sleep apnea, the
disorder that recently took
the life of Reggie White.
The NFL has always pro-
moted the concept of gladia-
tors doing battle, and the
American public loves the
idea of these behemoths
going at each other.
The NFL has even tied
into the bigger is better
belief by partnering with
Hardee's on a hamburger
that has two-thirds of a
pound of beef and contains
100 grams of fat and 1,400
calories.
In some ways, the league
is hypocritical in the stances
that it takes. Don't do drugs.
Don't do steroids. Just eat
yourself to death.

Owens to play
As I wrote last week, I
fully expected Terrell
Owens to play and now he
has announced that he will
do just that. He has been
practicing, cutting and run-
ning routes.
He reported that God
has healed him and now his
ankle feels like nothing
more than a minor ankle
sprain.

BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Fernandina Beach High
School boys soccer team earned a
state playoff berth Tuesday night
when the Pirates blanked Stanton
College Preparatory 2-0 at Pirate
Field in the first round of the dis-
trict tournament.
The Pirates broke a scoreless
stalemate with Austin Danielson's
goal on a penalty kick early in the
second half. FBHS got an insur-
ance goal from Scott Kellog, also
on a penalty kick, late in the second


half.to seal the win. Sophomore
goalkeeper Mike Wilson record-
ed 10 saves for the Pirates.
"We struggled in the first half,"
FBHS Coach Daniel Frome said.
"Stanton was closing us down
quickly. They weren't giving us a
lot of space.
"In the second half, midfield
played a lot better. I have to give a
lot of credit to our defense. They
played really well throughout the
entire game.
"It was a really hard-fought,
clean game. Both teams didn't
want their season ended. We were
able to pick up a really big win."
The Pirates advanced to the dis-
trict championship game Thursday
against Bishop Kenny, the No. 1
seed. The teams split during the
regular season with the Pirates


winning 3-2 and then losing 3-1 to
the Crusaders..
The game was scheduled for 7
p.m. Thursday at Pirate field.
Bishop Kenny advanced to the title
game with an 8-0 win over First
Coast Tuesday.
The Pirates (13-6-2) advance to
the state playoffs regardless of
Thursday's outcome. A win will
ensure home field advantage next
week in the regional quarterfinals.
The Pirates capped the regular
season Jan. 28 at Sandalwood, shut-
ting out the Saints 9-0. The game
was shortened by eight minutes
due to the mercy rule.
Danielson scored four goals

Coach Herb Hatch said it was the
best finish for a 16-and-under volleyball
team in the 11-year history of the Amelia
Island Maniacs.
The Maniacs dominated their pool,
winning three matches Saturday to
advance to the gold bracket on Sunday.
The team finished tied for fifth place in

Augustine Volleyball Club 25-17, 17-25,


15-7 before sealing the deal with a 25-11,
25-22 win over Big Lake out of Lake
Okeechobee. The Maniacs clinched first
place to advance to the gold division
championship.
On Sunday, the Maniacs picked up a
first-round win over Indian River Juniors
Volleyball Club 15-25, 26-24, 15-5 before
suffering their first loss in the quarter-
final round to Southwest Sunset
Volleyball Club out of Fort Myers, 5-25,

pin in 3:27. James Devlin (112), Daniel Perrone (119),
RJ Lowrian (130), Christian Benecke (140), Duncan

peting. The Pirates went 3-1, beating Gateway out of

Amelia Island Maniacs," he said.
Hatch said he was proud of the girls,
considering the 16-and-under squad is
comprised of just two girls who should
be playing in that age division. Eight of
the girls could play 15-and-under and
two could play 14-and-under divisions.
The 16-and-under squad travels to
Jacksonville Feb. 26 for a tournament.
The 12-and-under Maniacs travel to Cape
Coast this weekend, and the 14-and-
under team is idle until a March 5 tour-
nament in Jacksonville.
The girls practice twice weekly at
the Peck Gym in Fernandina Beach. For

Anor'easter blew through
Wednesday and may
still have some linger-
ing effects for this
weekend's fishing forecast
Looks like Sunday may be the
best day for offshore fishing, giv-
ing fishermen a chance to enjoy
a few hours of fishing before
watching the Super Bowl, which
begins at
6:30 p.m.
On
Saturday, a
low tide will
arrive at
11:30 am.
and a flood
tide at 4:45
p.m. With
Teo r Lase this in mind,
Terry Lacoss sea trout
fishing
ONTg M should be
good at the
WA TER Nassau
Sound
Bridge during the afternoon
incoming tide. One of the best
areas to speck fish remains at
the mouth of Sawpit Creek and
right under the new Nassau
Bridge span. Live shrimp fished
deep under a trout float works
well during a moving tide, while
led head jigs work best during
the slower moving tides. Be sure
to work your lures and live baits
slow for these deep winter sea
trout. Sea trout must be released
until March 1, The morning
falling tide should produce red-
fish in the Amelia River. Look for
reds to hold on mud flats that are
adjacent to large bays and creek
mouths. Work a live bullhead
minnow barbed to a led head jig
slow along the bottom for reds
weighing to eight pounds.
Fishing has picked up in the
St Marys River for red drum
and stripers at the 1-95 bridge.
River fishermen are catching
stripers weighing to five pounds
while casting minnow-type lures
in creek mouths and trolling
,close to the bridge supports and
deep bends in the river.


JERKa LACOSS, rtSPEAL
Sea trout fishermen are pictured fishing under the new Nassau Bridge for winter sea
trout.


If the sea calms down this
weekend, look for excellent sea
bass fishing at FA, FC and FB
fish havens. Fish dead on the
bottom with fresh cut bait for sea
bass that are weighing to three
pounds. Sea bass are delicious
eating when fried in butter and
garlic salt.
Largemouth bass fishing
remains good in Rodman
Reservoir for bass weighing to
10 pounds. During the draw
'down, some. of the best fishing
has been coming from right in
front of the dam where grass
beds are holding bass. Rodman
Reservoir bass must be released
untilApril l.
Keep in mind that a full moon


arrives on Feb. 24 when large-
mouth bass should be spawning
in iiany of Florida lakes and
rivers.
Bass fishing remains slow in
local tidal rivers, however school-
ing bass should be holding in
some of the deep turns in the
rivers. Cast deep diving crank
baits to the .deep side of the river
and work them with a slow
retrieve in the deepest portions
of the river bends.
Surf fishermen are catching
whiting at the old pipeline during
the high outgoing tide. Some of
the best catches are coming with
fresh shrimp fished right on the
bottom.
If the wind lays down this


weekend, look for puppy drum to
hold at the very end of the St
Marys south jetty rocks. Once'
again, fresh shrimp fished right
on the bottom is catching drum
weighing to 15 pounds.
Have a "super" fishing week-
end.
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
bjones,'iCthlnlcu,sleader.corm, mail
them to P.O. Box 766. Fernan-
dina Beach, FL 32035, or drop

OPEN LETTER TO THE

CUSTOMERS OF

CRAWFORD INSURANCE

AGENCY:


Over the past 20 years, the Crawford Insurance Agency has striven to
provide you with excellent service at competitive rates.

I am pleased to 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,
( my' ,

FBHS students


in on the game

KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
Although tickets to the Super Bowl are
priced into the thousands of dollars, about 50
Fernandina Beach High School students will
attend the game for free.
But that's not all. Those students will be
in Alltel Stadium field at the 40- and 50-yard
lines during the halftime show featuring for-
mer Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.
The students have also
been chosen to help crowd
the field for pre-game per-
formances, said Rob
Hicks, Fernandina Beach
High School television
production teacher and
student government spon-
sor, Hicks noted that the McCartney
students chosen are either
associated with student
government or are members of the National
Honor Society.
The students have participated in
rehearsals for the big show Tuesday,
Thursday and will rehearse again today,
Hicks said. McCartney himself was to be at
a dress rehearsal Thursday.
McCartney is to sing four songs a long
time, considering many halftime acts play
only segments of songs. However, because a
football game halftime is only 15 minutes
and the Super Bowl is no exception, the stu-
dents' 15 minutes of fame will be less than
that.
"They're telling us 11 minutes for the
actual performance," Hicks said. "We're
assigned to a very specific spot on the field.
They are to get there as quickly as they can,
and as soon as it's over, get off as quickly as
they can."
The students will be placed at choice
locations for visibility. Student government is
to be on the 40-yard line, about 10 yards
from the field's center, and the National
Honor Society students are to be on
the 50-yard line during McCartney's per-
formance.
Thl-y .wi[l join thousands of Jacksonville
teenaBs egl&to be concert "extras" for
the per ormances.
"They originally wanted 5,000 teenagers,
but they wound up with 2,800," Hicks said.
At first, the group was going to partici-
pate in the halftime show, but when they
showed up early to a practice Sunday, they
were also chosen to attend the pre-game
event.
"We were the first group there on
Sunday for practice, and we got chosen to
participate in the pre-game, too," Hicks said.
"I don't think it was because we were there
first, but rather because we were so well
organized."
In pre-game festivities, pop group Black
Eyed Peas is to perform with Earth, Wind &
Fire and country singer Gretchen Wilson is
to perform with country-rock veterans the
Charlie Daniels Band.
Hicks said the students are excited about
their chance to be part of Jacksonville and
Super Bowl history.
"It's really neat," Hicks said.

Colleran, Pastor, St. Mary.of the Lake, Chicago
A ,Thank you for your eloquent letter. I wrote a
_A-. little more specifically: "A movie is not good or
bad because of its content, but because of how it
handles its content" There is a difference. The
movies do teach us, as you observe, but in this case
do they teach us to agree with what Frankie does, or
to question it? I thought it was a great movie about a
man who, given who and what he is, does what he
thinks is the right thing, but what I think is the
wrong thing. I was struck by the positive portrait of
the priest in the movie. I believe he is correct when
he.warns Frankie that his decision will haunt him
for the rest of his days. It's interesting that a point of
view opposed to Frankie's is given an eloquent voice
in the film.
In all the mail I've received regarding this movie,
the, most moving message came from someone I
have quoted before, the film critic Jeff Shannon of
Seattle, a quadriplegic. He writes:
"Would a viewing of 'Million Dollar Baby' neces-
sarily be harmful if the viewers truly value life? My
personal feeling about the first year (or years) of
paralysis is that you are, essentially, held in a kind of
limbo. You don't want to live, but you don't want to
die (at least, I didn't), and so you are stuck in a state
of spiritual and philosophical stasis, and it is during
this crucial time that options begin to come into
focus.
"For every moment of every day for the past 26

(WARNING: The following letters discuss plot
details of "Million Dollar Baby.")

Q.You think that guarding the secrets of "Million
.Dollar Baby" to preserve a "key plot point" (as
you put it) is of the highest importance. In my opin-
ion, it is the teaching of "Million Dollar Baby" that
should have been the focus of your review. Why?
Eastwood and all motion picture directors and writ-
ers are teachers. They teach us how to dress, how
to, express ourselves, whether to smoke or not.
Movies teach the public about acceptable and not
acceptable behavior. Movies are usually not propa-
ganda. They do, however, express a moral point of
view, a teaching. There is no such thing as a morally
neutral movie.
"Million Dollar Baby" forces us to think, as you
wrote. But it does far more. In "Baby," Eastwood
teaches us in a powerful and highly emotional way
that sometimes it is morally good to kill a paralyzed
person. This teaching is false and the reasons it is
false should be published. You write: "A movie is not
good or bad because of its content." I write: A movie
is good or bad because of many elements. One of
these elements is its content It's not the ending, nor
any "key plot point." It's the. teaching. James A.

blood. She is determined. In the end, Frankie's
assistance comes across as an act of mercy, love,
and the weakness of a man who can't bear to watch
her struggle so hard to die. It is sad and disappoint-
ing that people with an agenda are insisting the
movie is taking a stand on an issue, when you are
entirely correct that it's a story about these charac-
ters, their choices, and pain that doesn't discrimi-
nate between action and no action in the face of
tragedy."

Q How important is it when an actor or actress
. gets an Academy Award nomination? We are
longtime admirers of the actress Virginia Madsen;
will being nominated as best supporting actress
have an effect on her career? Susan Lake,
Urbana, Ill.
A Elaine Madsen, the mother of Virginia, and
-. her brother, Michael (who played Bill's broth-
er Budd in "Kill Bill: Volume 2), is a Chicago writer
and movie critic. She tells me:
'We got the happy news a few days ago. And
although you have said so kindly 'if there's any jus-.
tice' Virginia will win, as far as we're concerned,
justice happened with that nomination. This puts
Virginia on the A list. She starts a movie with
Harrison Ford on Feb. 9 in Vancouver and another


movie really dear to her heart is telling.her they'll
wait for her to finish the Harrison one so she can
do theirs. Only time will tell where all this will take
her but if there is something beyond the nomi-
nation, we will name that Grace."

Q.Why is it that only very recent movies (i.e.,
S less than four months old) usually get nomi-
nated for Academy Awards, especially for best pic-
ture? The oldest movie this year is "Ray," released
in October. In 2001, all five best picture nominees
were released in December. Do the members of
the Academy really have short memories? -
Robert Karwacki, Coral Springs, Fla.
A It's an intersection of two things. (1)
Hollywood actually has an "Oscar season,"
which opens the weekend after Labor Day at the
Toronto Film Festival, where this year such nomi-
nees as "Ray," "Hotel Rwanda," "Finding
Neverland," "Being Julia," "Sideways," "Yesterday"
and 'The Sea Inside" all had their premieres. (2)
The Oscars are regarded by the studios at least
partly as a marketing tool.
They naturally prefer to promote films that are
still in theaters, or about to be released on DVD,
rather than films that have already played out in the
marketplace.
