SIAN PERRY

When a warm bottle of dill tea
quickly quieted her chronically col-
icky nephew, Sandy Evans knew
she ,was on to something good.
She was home on a break from
her herbal medicine studies in
Washington state and her nephew
hadn't stopped screaming all day
"I remember in class mny
teacher saying. so.meof the best
herbal remedies are in \our own
cupboard, and lie mentit-ned dill."

family is not really into herbs," she
explained.:-drawing laughs from
the packed"hbuse at a Women's
Information Exchange luncheon
Feb. 2 where Evans %was the guest
speaker.
Determined. she scoured her
mother's cupboard and found a
bottle of dill.
"It had probably been there for
10 years," she said. noting her
mother, like others, relegated the
herb to garnish for deviled eggs.
But she knew from her studies it
also could be used to alleviate intes-
tinal bloating and gas and that it
was safe for children.
She added a little to boiling
,water. making a tea, brought it to
room temperature and offered it
to her sister-in-law.
"I think she was so desperate at
this point she normally rolls her
eyes..." said Evans. But try it she' :
did and it worked, soothing the
baby's irritated stomach and help-'
ing him to fall asleep for the first
time that day
"And I thought. 'You know. I'm
on the right path.'" said Evans.

elor's degree in herbal sciences

brisk,

KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
Growth in eastern Nassau
County is brisk, but the local com-
munity college continues to grow
at an even more breakneck pace.
Although not yet a full campus,
the Florida Community College at
Jacksonville (FCCJ) Betty P. Cook
Nassau County Center is well on its
way, said director Don Hughes.
"We have a little less than 20
percent of (the student count) it
would require to be a full campus.
but I would say optimistically that
it could happen in 10 to 15 years,"
Hughes said.
Since the 1999-2000 school year'
- the year before the Cook
Center's permanent buildings were
constructed enrollment has
grown by nearly 50 percent. jump-
ing from 93 to 172 full-time stu-
dents by state counts, Hughes said.
Noting that many students don't
carry what the state counts as a
full-time load, the number that actu-
ally passes through the center's
doors is higher, Hughes noted.
"I would say we serve about
1,000 individual students over the
course of the year, not counting
the outdoor center." he said.
Outdoor center activities are gen-
erally coordinated between the
Cook Center and businesses and
include team building and train-
ing.
According to Community
College Week,, FCC.1, with two
main campuses in Duval County. is
the fastest growing community col-
lege in Florida. It is growing at a
rate double the second-fastest
growing school.
SThis achievement is even'more
remarkable in view of the fact that
population growth in Northeast
Florida is moderate compared to
several other parts of the state,"

Intrepid ghost hunters visit old jail


KEVIN TURNER/NEWS-LEADER
Jolene Perkins of Orange Park uses a camcorder in her search
for ghosts at the Amelia Island Museum of History.

KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
When the. Amelia Island
Museum of History moved into the
vacant Nassau County jail, it inher-
ited the building's history as well.
And that past may have been
checkered with the kind of trials
that scarred men's and women's
souls.
Despite years of restoration that
left only jailhouse doors to testify to
its legacy as a place of incarceration
from 1935 to 1979; there have been
reports of things there that restora-
tion could never remove. Over the
years, some volunteers have
reported hearing noises when they
knew they were alone in the place.
And those were just the kind of
stories that brought Orange Park
resident Jolene Perkins and her


daughters Nicole, 21, and Annika,
14, to investigate possible ghostly
activity at the museum from 11
p.m. to 1 a.m. Jan. 29.
Armed with still cameras and
camcorders, the trio plowed head-
long into the museum's darkened
corners to see what, if anything, is
left of the building's legacy of bleak
cells and heavy metal doors.
"We heard reports that there
was activity here, and we felt very
strongly tiat this was something
we wanted to check out," Jolene
Perkins said. "We've heard some of
the employees say if it was their
day to close, they would hear
sounds, doors slamming, and that
they would feel a presence. That
was the biggest factor."
The.three go .ghost hunting as
a hobby, but they are very serious
about it. Their respect level is high,

and there was no giggling orjoking
as they carefully explored the
museum, sometimes turning off
lights and exploring in complete
darkness.
"We'll go in and see what is
here," Perkins said as they began
their quest. "If there's an area that
feels strong to us, we have a cam-
corder that uses a tape. If some-
thing shows up on more than one
medium, it means something is
really there."
Perkins said that sensitivity to
the supernatural runs in her fami-
ly as well as her husband's, giving
her daughters a double dose. They
have explored various locations in
Florida and Georgia, and have seen
and heard several things that they
could not explain away.

Florida At A Glance


This court can help with small civil claims


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader

Let's say you put down a $650
deposit on a rental house and the
landlord refuses to return the
deposit when you leave on the
grounds that you lost one of the
keys. You offer to have the lock
changed, but the landlord refus-
es the offer and retains your
deposit. (This actually happened
to me once.) You feel wronged,
but what can you do? Many peo-
ple finally let the issue drop,
because they feel that fighting it
would cost more than the origi-
nal debt, and involve a lot of time
and stress.
The answer is, you do have
recourse to getting the matter
justifiably settled: Small claims
court
This court deals with just
such civil issues. (Ever watched
'Texas Justice"?) Some of the
most frequent cases include
home improvements, car repairs,
"buggy" computers, moving and
storage companies and land-
lord/tenant disputes.


There is a
limit on the
,,._ amount you
can sue for,
A. -and it varies
from state to
:: ". state, but
must be
under $5,000 in our locale. The
case is filed in the territory
where the incident took place, or
where the defendant or business
is located.
If your complaint is with
something you ordered (and can-
not be resolved with the compa-
ny) your local court will usually
have jurisdiction.
Any individual, business, com-
pany or organization can either
file a case in small claims court
or have one filed against them.
Even minors can file a claim or
be sued through parent or
guardians in most states.
When attempts to settle the
matter out of court fail,
here are the steps to take:
First, gather the facts, including
what happened, where and
when, how you were damaged,


and what attempts you made to
recover. Write this out simply,
attaching any copies of letters,
bills, checks, etc., that will help
your case.
Take this to the County
Clerk's office in your locale.
Upon filing your complaint, you
will receive a case number and
trial date. Make sure you have
included the legal name of the
person or business you are try-
ing to sue, along with their
address, telephone number, and
any other such information you
can provide.
The court will send the defen-
dant a copy of the complaint by
certified mail. If it comes back
unclaimed, another copy is usual-
ly sent by regular mail. You can
also arrange to have the defen-
dant served personally by a sher-
iff or process server (at extra
cost), but this isn't usually neces-
sary.
How much does this cost?
Well, like almost everything else,
filing fees have gone up, with
new rates established in Florida
in the summer of 2004. Now,


rates vary with the amount of the
suit, from $55 up to $255. You
pay this fee when filing. Usually,
the winner can include court
costs in the judgment total. If you
incurred extra expenses trying
to collect these costs you're enti-
tfled to collect these costs as well.
Plaintiffs do not need a
lawyer; they represent them-
selves. But you may want a
lawyer in case the defendants ask
to have the case transferred to a
regular civil docket, which they
have the right to request.
Sometimes, when defendants
are served with a summons, they
suddenly change their minds and
willingly settle out of court. That
happened to us in the case I men-
tioned earlier.
The landlord was eager to
return our deposit when he real-
ized that in the Texas territory
where we lived a landlord was
required to pay three times the
original deposit when a judgment
went against him.

GHOSTS Continued from 1A
"We've had a lot of electrical
occurrences," Perkins said. "'Those
are most common." In these, elec-
tric lights either come on by them-
selves and can't be switched off, or
vice versa. Annika, she noted, once
saw a full apparition of a child wear-
ing a white, ankle-length nightgown
kneeling near a grave in Ocala.
They have also had an active
evening of ghost-hunting in the
town's historic Bosque Bello
Cemetery, Perkins said.
"We heard some things we can't
dispel," she said.
But it was a terrifying encounter
with a ghost that originally pushed
the mother and daughters toward
their unusual hobby, Perkins
explained.
"We went to North Carolina for
a dance competition and stayed in a
hotel," she said. "That was when
we encountered a poltergeist It was
turning the water on and off. It went
on full blast, all by itself. We were
watching the handle move. Nicole
saw a dark shadow, a silhouette of
something moving across the room
when no one was there. People who
worked there told us that trays
would slide up and down the hall-
way."
Rather than run away scream-
ing, the three began to explore tales
of those who had died in the historic
hotel, trying to put a name to their
faceless invader.
The three aren't trying to cre-
ate new ghost stories. They are look-
ing to prove or debunk existing
ones. Take the Fernandina story of
the notorious pirate Luc Simone
Aury, for example. According to
local lore, he was hanged here, but
his throat had already been cut,
showering unsuspecting viewers
with blood.
"He was imprisoned here, but
he was later shown as being jailed in
Louisiana," Perkins said. "I believe
he was hanged there."
The old jail is thought to have
had a hanging tree near its eastern
door, and Perkins indicated feeling
something in that area.
"Right outside the staircase, and
back down the hallway," she said
matter-of-factly as she pointed,
shortly after the three began to
explore.
The three also detected spirits in
the museum's Victorian Room, once
the women's cellblock, and the
conference room directly above.
Their photos revealed "orbs," cir-
cles in the air that can't be dismissed
as dust, and "mist" in another loca-
tion. One orb showed up in the
same place on more than one cam-
era.
Perkins: manages the group's
recoriding equipment and said she
an the .girls'use both digitalpho-- .
tographiy and magnetic video
recording, since they can be used as
a check against the other.
Annika Perkins appears as
intrepid in ghost pursuits as her sis-
ter and mother, although she con-
fessed that she still gets scared
sometimes. Someone usually
accompanies her when she ventures
into a potentially haunted area.
"I've gotten better, I just get
freaked out," she said.
Annika is thought to attract spir-
its, and her older sister, considered
"sensitive," detects them. As the
two walked around in the museum,
they communicated to each other in
quiet, brief whispers.
"I get a feeling," Nicole said of
her encounters. "It's like there's
something there. Sometimes it will
feel almost stuffy."

the way, was "pious" and by
age 2 1/2, he'd learned how to
read.
In preschool, he was reading
books. "He's always had an eye for
detail," says Pastor Barney. "At 4,
he was finding grammatical errors
on billboards and mistakes on
menus."
These are intellectual gifts cer-
tainly, but what about others? Ask
Tyler today what he wants to do
with his life and hell say he wants
to play baseball. "He's not joking,"
says his father. "He knows player
statistics and trivia. This is what
he most likes to memorize."
Tyler's in luck. ESPN now rec-
ognizes spelling as a sport, much
to the pique of some sports fans.
ESPN will broadcast this year's
national spelling championship
rounds on June 2-3. One of
Nassau County's former repre-
sentatives to the National Spelling
Bee has strong feelings about
spelling's sportsworthiness.

and later the region, explains that
spelling is truly competitive, it
improves with practice and cer-
tain people have a natural gift for
spelling all of which are true in
sports.
She remembers studying pam-
phlets with hundreds of words
and doing her best at something
that seemed fun spelling
words. When she won the region,
she remembers "feeling com-
pletely overwhelmed by the buzz"
in the community, on the TV and
in the newspaper.
Now a Spanish teacher at
Fernandina Beach High School,
Clemons says, "I just liked to spell.
I did not realize that what I did in
the classroom connected in any
way to what was going on in the
rest of the world."
She placed 42 out of 106, dis-
qualifying on the word "scallopi-
ni."

Clemons credits part of her
success to the encouragement
she received from English teacher
Martha Owens. Before this week,
when he was joined by Tyler
Barney, Mrs. Owens' son Torin
Owens was the only county two-
time spelling champion: in 1975
he won the county bee and in 1977
he went to the national bee. He,
placed 11th out of 98, disqualifying
on the word "aspidistra."
The regional spelling bee is
March 5. If Tyler wins there, he
would go on to the National
Spelling Bee, where 248 will mis-
spell a word and one will not.
Perhaps he will be that one. He
has the strategy.

FCLJ Continued from 1A
said FCCJ President Dr. Steven
Wallace.
Suanne Thamm of Fernandina
Beach, chair of the FCCJ District
Board of Trustees, said the school's
offerings are its key to success. In
addition to traditional classes allow-
ing students to transfer credits to
state universities and other institu-
tions, FCCJ also places emphasis
on training through the state's
largest vocational training program.
"The work force program has
really exploded," Thamm said, not-
ing that it focuses on "high wage,
high skill" professions.
In the automotive technology
field, for example, FCCJ partnered
with DuPont, the Lexus Group and
the Toyota Motor Corp., Thamm
noted.
"We are training their techni-
cians," she said. "They told us that
the problem we will have will be in
keeping these people in school long
enough before the dealers take
them away. These are jobs that start
at $30,000 to $40,000 a year."
Other FCCJ training and degree
programs include criminal justice
and fire service, aviation, biotech-
nology, business, child care, com-
puter sciences, construction, cos-
metology, creative arts, culinary
arts and hospitality, engineering
and architecture, health care, man-
ufacturing and many others.
"We are becoming the commu-
nity college of the Navy," Thamm
said. '"They have a policy of getting

every occupational specialty paired
with a certificate or degree pro-
gram." Thamm said the district's
growth is fueled by the fact that the
school pays attention to the realities
of the working world.
"I think it's the fact that we are
making such good connections with
local employers," she said. "We also
have terrific financial aid programs.
We've got a lot of mentoring and
other assistance to offer to students
who have been away from school
for awhile."
"Dual enrollment," a program
through which high school students
simultaneously take college classes,
is another reason why FCCJ ranks
are swelling, Thamm noted.
Hughes said the Cook Center is
poised for more growth. "We own
approximately 102 acres," he said.
"We are using approximately 30."
Dual enrollment will grow with
the construction of a new vocation-
al training building, Hughes added.
The Cook Center's planned
Nassau Technical Career Center
building, a joint effort between
FCCJ and the Nassau County
School District, will break ground
for a new 45,000-square-foot build-
ing this summer.
"Well be adding additional tech-
nical, trade, hospital, autocad, busi-
ness and office management class-
es," Hughes said.
Students ranging in age from
high school and older will be able to
take classes offering high school
and college credit through the new
center, Hughes noted.

UNF analyst helps grow


small businesses locally


LILSPINKS
WestNassau Correspondent
Greater Nassau County
Chamber of Commerce members
learned Feb. 3 that there is a
resource for people who want to
start a new business but don't know
where to begin. And it's free.
Cathy Hagan was guest speak-
er during the chamber's February
membership luncheon meeting at
The Pig Restaurant in Callahan.
She's a certified business analyst
and area director for the Small
Business Development Center's
Jacksonville Regional Office at the
University of North Florida, which
serves 17 counties including
Nassau County.
According to Hagan, national
statistics reveal that 90 percent of all
businesses employ fewer than 20
people and 9 percent have between
20 and 90 employees.
"So you can see, under 100 is
really where all of the businesses
are," she said, adding that only 1
percent of businesses in the U.S.
employ 500 workers or more.
"Small businesses create 75 per-
cent of all new net jobs, pay 44.5
percent of the U.S. private payroll
and bring more than 65 percent of
the new innovations to the mar-
ketplace," said Hagan.
At the local level, 485 business-
es. are headquartered in Nassau
County and 99 percent of them
have less than 100 employees and
60 percent less than 5 employees.
That doesn't include those who are


Hagan


self-employed about another
4,000 businesses in Nassau County,
Hagan said.
She said "undercapitalization"
(running out of cash) is probably
the biggest challenge for the busi-
nesses she and other business ana-
lysts work with. A successful small
business is one that is able to man-
age its cash flow, pay the bills and
support the employees which sup-
port the business.
Business loans are available to
small businesses through some
banks, "But it's tough to borrow
money from a traditional lender if
you're a small business, all by your-
self, or with one employee," she
said.
Some micro-loan programs
make small loans, but not in Nassau
County, and many loans are from
family members and friends, which
Hagan jokingly referred to as the
"Family and Friends Network."
Lack of technical skills, such as
accounting or marketing, are other


challenges small businesses face,
she said.
"And that's where the Small
Business Development Center
comes in," Hagan said.
"Our program is funded prima-
rily through the Small Business
Administration, the funding arm at
the federal level, and then through
matching dollars, through the uni-
versity system, through other eco-
nomic development organizations,
the city government, the county
government That's how we match
our federal dollars," and every fed-
eral dollar received must be
matched with local dollars, Hagan
said.
Hagan has been coming to
Nassau County for 10 years to meet
with prospective small business
owners on a one-on-one basis and
during workshops, teaching how
to start a business and write a busi-
ness plan in order to create and
retain jobs, help increase sales, help
businesses borrow money or seek
investment dollars.
The workshops are helpful,
especially for those who don't real-
ly know what questions to ask
about getting a new business start-
ed.
Hagan said the Small Business
Development Center Network, on
behalf of the state, can show that for
every dollar invested in the pro-
gram, "we help generate three for
the tax base."
For information about the Smallf
Business Development Center, con-
tact Hagan at (904) 620-2478.

Are herbal remedies safe?


It's a question many people
ask, especially in the Wake of diet
pill deaths and sports supplement
scandals.
"Herbs are regulated, it's a
total myth that they're not," said
Sandy Evans, a herbalist from
Orlando who was guest speaker
at a Women's Information
Exchange Luncheon earlier this
month at City Hall.
Evans said problems arise
when herbs are taken out of their
traditional context. For example,
ma hung, cited in the deaths of
dieters who took it to suppress
their appetites, was never intend-
ed for that use, said Evans.
"It's always been used for
asthma," she said. "If you use it
traditionally, it will help you feel
so much better."
She warned her audience to
"make sure you are getting your
herbs from a quality source" and
to seek the knowledge of a qual-
ified herbalist or doctor.


Suppliers are required by the :;
government to provide a certifi- '
cate of analysis, where each plant
is investigated to make sure it is
what it claims to be, said Evans.
But she said herbal remedies
also must be applied to suit the
individual,' not the disease, the "
opposite of modern medicine.
"In natural medicine you look
more at the person than the dis-
ease." For example, "one person's
depression is different from
another person's depression," she i
said. 'i
And while there are "classic" i
formulas that are safe for gener-
al use for different ailments or I
well-being, "Any time you use \
something for the first time just i
use a small amount to see how I
you feel." r
Evans is clinic manager at '
Ling's Acupuncture and Chinese I
Medicine in Orlando. Visit the I

American Beach


Community center


plan needs cash


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
The American Beach commu-
nity center and museum building
is still nearly $200,000 away from
its groundbreaking ceremony.
Despite that bad news after the
project's bid opening last month,
AL Lewis Historical Society board
member Phil Scanlan urged
Nassau County Commissioners to
build the facility atJulia Street and
Mary Avenue and not move it into
the Evans' Ocean Rendezvous
building.
"We were all disappointed
when the bid was opened,"
Scanlan told commissioners Feb.
2. "I don't want to switch from this
(site). The Rendezvous isn't the
plan."
Four area construction firms
submitted bids to build the 3,000-
square-foot community center and
museum on a county-owned parcel
at Julia Street and Mary Avenue.
The project included con-
struction of the community center
and museum, a parking lot, a
retention pond and extension of
sewer lines from the Amelia Island
Parkway.
County staff unsealed the bids
on Jan. 26. The low bidder, BA
Wilson Construction Inc. of
Jacksonville, beat three others
with a $792,000 bid. The others
bid over $1 million.
"We've been working on this
for 18 months," said Building
Main-tenance and Parks and
Recreation Director Daniel
Salmon. "Construc-tion costs have
skyrocketed. Who knew that was
going to happen?"
The American Beach commu-
nity center project is being funded
by $316,000 in grant money car-
ried over from previous years and
$301,452 in Community Develop-
ment Block Grant funding.
But the difference between the
budget and low bid is $175,000.
Salmon said the county is
reviewing the documents from the
low bidder, as well as the others.
"We've asked for a schedule of
values from the lower bidder, so


we can look at alternative funding
sources for at least part of it,"
Salmon said.
At a special meeting Feb. 2,
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney told the board that the
parcel intended for the project
could be sold to give the county's
budget a needed transfusion.
"That existing site that we were
going to build a community center
on is very valuable," Mahaney said
before suggesting it could go in
the Rendezvous building at the
American Beach Historic Park.
But Scanlan said moving the
community center and museum
to the unrestored Rendezvous
building would only leave the proj-
ect farther from reality than it is
now.
"(We would) have the same
problems, but bigger," Scanlan
said. "We've got to close a $200,000
gap now, but we could have a $2
million gap with a new plan." It
could cost over $1 million to ren-
ovate it to current standards, he
said. It also lacks water and sewer
service, and such lines would have
to come from further away than
they would need to for the cur-
rent site.
Scanlan also noted that Fleet
& Associates Architects/Planners
Inc. of Jacksonville has drawn up
plans that have received permit
approval from county and state
agencies. "This is sort of like a
bird in the hand, two in the bush,"
Scanlan said. "Are we going to give
up something we've been work-
ing on for years and are $200,000
away from?"
Scanlan added that he doubts
such a Rendezvous project could
be paid for with proceeds from the
sale of the parcel at Julia Street
and Mary Avenue. The land was
donated by Summer Beach for
approval of their planned unit
development (PUD) and came to
the county at no cost, he added.
"We all want this to happen,"
said commission Chair Ansley
Acree.
Commissioners have not yet
set a date to revisit the issue.

BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader
Bassist, guitarist, pianist
Anthony Smith lives in American
Beach, works at Amelia Island
Plantation and has big plans for the
future.
He has already come a long way
from a Tom Sawyer childhood in
Bogaloosa, La., "stealing water-
melons, swimming fror hours in
the creek and my mother always
knew where I had been because I
came home clean," he grins, "but
the adventure was worth the whip-
ping."
Smith says he grew up with
Motown music, and "I would like to
harness young people and get them
back to songs with real lyrics. If
you talk (rap) about the money and
success that drugs bring, I want
them to talk about the conse-
quences, too. I'd like to get their
minds focused and rap about that,"
he says.
In his salad days, he was a bass
guitarist on tour with Al Green,
Ann Peoples, Patty LaBelle and
Aretha Franklin, but he quit touring
in 1995. He sings rhythm and blues,
contemporary gospel, pop and
crossover music, and has made
soundtracks for movies, films and
documentaries.
"I was coming back from a
European tour and when I boarded
the plane in London, I decided to

lead a design and stewardship char-
rette for the American Beach
Historic Park beginning at 9:30 a.m.
Saturday at Nassau County Fire
Station #20 at Lewis Street and First
Coast Highway on American
Beach.
In addition to discussing the
physical design aspects for the
Evans' Ocean Rendezvous build-

renovation, the group will also focus
on the facility's ongoing operation
and management, including fund-
ing and budget considerations.
The meeting is open to the

Anthony Smith writes, plays
and produces music in his
American Beach home studio.

stop touring," Smith says. "I had a
duffle bag full of cassettes 25 years
old and older, and I decided it was
time to go to the next phase."
He had always worked in hotels
between gigs, "and I did my


research about resorts on Amelia
Island," Smith says, so he worked
at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island,
and is now a banquet server and a
part-time bartender at the
Plantation, "and sometimes when
there is music and someone fails to
show, they call on me to sit in," he
says.
He has played in bands, stacked
records and felt the need of a
change, so "Lights! Cameral
Action" was to be the next step, he
says. "That, and I want to play my
own music. The music business is
more than being a 'copy' band,
which," he explains, "means play-
ing the standards. And there's no
adventure in that," he says.
So he writes lyrics, background
vocals, lead vocals and does
arrangements for strings and per-
cussion, and plays the bass, guitar
and piano, and he has composed a
classical score which he intends to
show to Cecil Cole, manager of the
Jacksonville Symphony.
Having gone from playing to
writing to producing and directing,
his dream now is to set up his
own distribution network. "The
music is greater than the fear," he
says.
And he has his little house on
the island "where I can be out the
front door and have both feet in
the Atlantic Ocean in less than a


t notes

minute," he says. "Sunrise is spec-
tacular. Words can only scratch the
surface of what you feel deep down
when you watch the sun come up
over the ocean. I wouldn't trade
that experience for anything."
He started to try to produce,
but admits he didn't get serious
about it until 1999. "And I've been
doing that ever since in my
small digital studio at home," he
says.
This musician does not like to
be called a musician "because of
their reputation," Smith says, "but
music is the only thing that can
take you through every emotion
personifying and magnifying
every emotion to the fullest as it
goes along," he says.
But he can also be called an
impresario, and in that role, he says
parents living on the island who
feel a son or daughter should be on
American Idol can come to him for
help. "I've got loads of material,"
Smith says.
Eventually, he muses, he would
like to have a production company
which he would name 50/50.
"Then I'd build a little house on the
beach, keep half of the rest of the
money for myself and give the
other half to society.
"Ithink that would be good for
me and good for society, too," he
says.

Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly Without

Probate Fees & With Minimum Estate Taxes


f you own a home ... or have assets worth at least $100,000
you owe it to yourself and your family -to get the
facts on living trusts. If you think you're protected with a
simple will ... think again ... In many cases a Will guaran-
tees your estate will go through probate, which means your
family will not be able to take possession of your estate for
many months or even years!
Plus, if your entire estate, which includes life insur-
ance and retirement plans, is over $1,000,000 in 2011, your
family may owe estate taxes which could amount to 41-55%


of the value of your estate.


This means that your family


may have to sell some assets just to pay the estate taxes!
A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize
estate taxes. Plus, a living trust may protect your estate if
you become incapacitated during your lifetime by avoiding
guardianship. This means your estate may be managed as
you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit. To

OPINION


FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2005/News-Leader


Landfill solutions
The Nassau County Solid Waste
Management Department is an
enterprise fund. This means the
department uses only funds gen-
erated by its own activities. These
funds include but are not limited to
landfill disposal fees. The county
commissioners set these fees by
ordinance and resolutions. Cur-
rently the disposal fee is $40 per
ton. The annual landfill assessment
should be.,based on this disposal
fee. It should be calculated by divid-
ing the total residential solid waste
disposed in one year by the number
of households in the county. The
current 1.125 tons per year per
household times $40 equals $45.
If the annual landfill assessment
is raised to $100, then naturally
(and fairly) the disposal fee for non-
residential garbage should go to
$88.89 per ton. The citizens and
businesses of Nassau County have
been treated unfairly long enough,
with out-of-county contract waste
at $23 to $27 per ton while we pay
$40 per ton.
There are those who will say
that Nassau County would lose all
waste except the residential, which
is prepaid through the annual land-
fill assessment So what? The Solid
Waste Management Department
is selling a commodity, "air space."
If you don't sell it today you can
sell it later or keep it for your own
personal use. If a tire retailer loses
its best customer to a competitor
does he raise the price of the tires.
No, he cuts his expenses. He may
wind up selling and mounting the
tires himself.
If the landfill loses customers
the life of the landfill will be extend-
ed, most likely past the time need-
ed to pay off the bond. The debt
service on the bond is about $2 mil-
lion per year. There are 20,000-plus
households in the county (and
growing daily). If we raise the annu-
al landfill assessment $100 to pay
the debt service plus about $27 for
operations and other expenses, that
would mean the disposal fee should
go up to $112.89 per ton. If the com-
missioners are afraid of losing all
commercial waste, let them con-
sider economic flow control. Duval
does it. This has all been present-
ed to the commissioners almost
two years ago.
It is time to take-action, no more
consultants, no more contracts, no
* more RFPs. This department
should be operated like a business.
not a charity for our neighbors to
the south.

Liberals for America
Recently a letter writer to the
editorial page said something to
the effect of "why liberals hate
America and anything American."
This kind of attack needs to stop.
Liberals do not hate America. They
are fighting for America.
This liberal is attacking our cur-
rent leadership in Washington.
Bush had been so reckless and
irresponsible in leading our coun-
try he should be impeached. He
has led us into a war of his design
and greed; he has bankrupted our
country and our children's future
with trillions of dollars of debt, and
is trying to destroy our Social
Security system that has worked
for decades.
He is the one who send budgets
to Congress using Social Security
funds without budgetary means for
paying them back. He is the one
who decided expenditures for the
war are not to be included in the
budget, but sent to Congress as
separate extensions of. former
budgets thereby hiding the true
budget mess of paying our bills.
Liberals see through his pan-
dering to Americans, his lies and
deceit, his cocky and arrogant atti-
tude that exposes his insecurity.
His group manipulates American's
conscience and morals to serve
their own purposes.
Please wake up, forget your
automatic defense for a minute and
really look at what is happening to
us.

Ifit'ain't broke...
I am not in favor ,Il city c-llf ris
to purchase Florida Public Utilities
as proposed at the last city com-
mission meeting ("City closer to
FPU purchase," Feb. 4).
Although I appreciate any
efforts by the city to generate rev-
enues, I feel that the purchase of
FPU will produce exorbitant
expenses which may well require
additional tax revenues to mitigate.
;I respectfully submit that the
city now operates the marina and
the golf courses both of which
are not profitable.
I question the implied assump-
tion that because the city operates
a utility such as water, it is the same

as managing an electric utility. And
to assume that all personnel with-
in FPU would provide their expert-
ise and stay with the city is a large
stretch since no information
regarding FPU staff locations,
salary structures or benefit levels
were provided.
Furthermore, I disagree with
the assumption that profit will result
from combining the service and
billing of FPU with those of the
city's own utility department
It has been my experience that
merging two separate billing
departments and two separate cus-
tomer service departments require
extensive redesign of billing sys-
tems and customer data base sys-
tems even with the same set of
customers. When two different
company billing systems are com-
bined, it can take considerable
expense and years before you actu-
ally, reach economies of scale.
For all of the above reasons, I
therefore believe it to be ill advised
at this point to purchase FPU. If it
ain't broke, why "fix" it?
Jan Cote-Merow

Just say no
The News-Leader ("New county
commission meeting hall?" Feb. 4)
reported the county commission
idea to spend $100,000 in impact
fees to equip a new meeting hall for
the commission. It seems like only
a few weeks ago, we were reading
about our county finances being in
the hole and in danger of incurring
higher finance charges because we
can't seem to balance our county
budget
In those earlier articles about
our county debt, it appeared that
our county dug itself into a financial
hole in a variety of ways. It would
seem to me that when one is in a
hole, the first thing to do is stop
digging.
All of us in Nassau County have
been responsible for balancing
budgets, whether it is the budget of
our businesses, or that of our own
households. Whatever our experi-
ence in budgeting and financial
accountability, we know two things
are always true:
First, there are always good rea-
sons to spend money. If we want
reasons to spend money, we can
always justify spending one way or
another. It may be a new meeting
room, new technology, or replace-
ment vehicles, or it, may be new
furniture for the home, or a wide-
screen TV or new clothes. To get
out of trouble, we know we have to
just stop spending and say "no" to
ideas abuut hIow to spend money,,
even though many of the ideas are
good.
The second thing that is true
whether we are managing our fam-
ily budget or that of our business or
our government is that leadership
counts. The ones in charge have to
lead the way out of the hole.
If the county commissioners are
uncertain about how to handle
spending issues while we are get-
ting back on financial track, here
are a few suggestions:
1. Don't spend money on any-
thing other than current obliga-
tions unless it is essential for safe-
ty, security, or the return on


investment is greater than 50 per-
cent per year. Period.
2. Set the example. Demonstrate
leadership. Show others how to
avoid spending.
Borrow or rent meeting space if
the current location for commis-
sioners can't satisfy needs. Did
commissioners ask the Ritzor
Amelia Island Plantation if the
county could borrow space for
meeting night? Did the county con-
sider using school meeting space?
How about a church hall?
Commissioners: Use the flip
charts, white boards and other
technology you have now. Don't
spend thousands of dollars for a
white board that prints out what!
you write! Just take notes like we
did back in the days when we bal-
anced our budgets! Bring the lap-
tops you already have and use
them! Don't buy more "stuff' while
we are in the hole. You send con-
flicting messages to everyone when
you do that.
If commissioners won't lead us
out of the financial hole we are in,
then get out of the way and let oth-
ers do it Or at least stop digging.

Teacher salaries
I am writing in response to
Beverly Miller's letter ('Teacher
salaries," Jan. 26) in reaction to
your Jan. 19, article, "Schools pay
122 workers $50,000 plus." Perhaps
her writings should be left to her
articles about turtle wahers, like
her-Dt:-2 eartrle', fi urtles
hatch un could. windy day." ,She is
unquestionably much more con-
versant on that subject than she is
on teacher salaries. Both Ms. Miller
and the News-Leader are convey-
ing the same misleading message.
First of all, $50,000 is not "munif-
icent" for a professional with a mas-
ter's degree and 30 years' experi-
ence. The current teacher salary
scale for a 10-month contract in
Nassau County does not even reach
$50,000 for teachers with 30 years'
experience. It tops out at $49,100.
As a matter of fact, other states'
average teacher salaries in 2002-
03, were more like: California,
$55,693; Michigan, $54,020;

The word "synergy" is derived from the
Greek word "sunergos," and it apparently
means "to speak like a consultant" At least
that word was used liberally by a consult-
ant at last week's city commission meeting during a
presentation regarding the city's possible purchase
of our local electric power company, Florida Public
Utilities (FPU).
Perhaps you saw the headlines in the paper,
"City closer to FPU purchase." In the related article
the city's consultant, Jerry Warren of WHH
Enterprises, was quoted as saying, "Based on our
evaluation, we have determined that acquisition by
the city (Fernandina Beach) of FPU's Amelia Island
(operations) makes economic sense at the range of
values we have estimated for the FPU system." Say
what?
Throughout the actual presentation to the com-
mission, Warren relied heavily on the "synergies"
that would occur if the city purchased the power
company and blended it with the city's existing
water utility (which was purchased over a year ago).
In other words, if you combine two utilities (electric
and water), you should be able to run the new
department more efficiently (i.e., fewer employees).
In fact, according to the consultants, there are over
2,000 municipal utilities across the country, and
most of them are moneymakers. So why doesn't the
city just snap up this potential cash cow?
Well, for one thing, there's this pesky little detail
that FPU is not for sale. Not only is it not listed for
sale, the company has informed the city on numer-
ous occasions that they have no intention of selling,
and they even sent their senior vice president and
chief operating officer all the way from West Palm
Beach to the commission meeting to reinforce that
position. I sat through the entire presentation think-
ing, "Gosh, there must be an unlimited list of enti-
ties that are not for sale for which the city could
spend money on consultants in order to determine a
theoretical price." To be fair, the consultant (and the


commissioners) point out that
simply saying something's not
for sale may be just a bargain-
Sing ploy, and that in the real
world "everything has its
*! price." (I, for one, find such a
philosophy a little unnerving
when it comes from public offi-
cials, but that's just me.)
So what are we talking
about when we think about
Mike Boyle buying the local power compa-
ny? First, you need to under-
.." stand that FPU is a publicly
WAITA held company that sells its,
MINUTE power to its customers, which
means FPU doesn't actually
generate electricity, they simply
distribute it after buying it from JEA. While FPU
operates throughout Florida, its operation on
Amelia Island (which handles 14,200 residential and
business customers) is the only part of the company
that the city wants to buy.
Next, we should realize there are 28 years left on
the 30-year franchise agreement that was recently
renewed between FPU and Fernandina Beach (boy,
talk about timing!). Add that to the fact that FPU
has been an excellent investment for its sharehold-
ers, and you begin to understand why even the con-
sultant believes a fair purchase price for the utility
would be in excess of $30 million. You may also
begin to understand why FPU.is not for sale.
So why, based on this background, would the
consultant recommend the purchase of the utility to
the city commission? Well, for starters, the consult-
ing firm was awarded a $20,000 contract to "study
the feasibility of acquiring FPU," especially whether
or not it would be financially beneficial to do so. It's
also worth noting that the city's consultant used to
be employed by First Southwest Co., the city's finan-
cial adviser. That explains the consultant's interest,
now what about the commission and the city manag-
er?
Since FPU currently has the lowest electric rates
for power companies in the state, it is unlikely city
leaders have a plan to offer even lower rates to its


What do you think will happen when
the city suddenly needs a quick fix to
handle one of its regular financial
crises? Well, electric rates will go up.
of course, generating more "profit.

residents. So if city ownership won't improve the
level of service, or lower rates to the consumers,
how do we explain the Siren's song that seems to be
luring the city into treacherous fiscal waters? The
answer: revenue flow!
You see, with city property taxes approaching
the legal limit of 10 mills, the commission and the
city administration are always trying to identify new
revenue sources to help pay for city expenses (like
consulting fees). But you need to remember that
property taxes are deductible for income tax purpos-
es, while utility bills are not. Since federal grants
and state funds are usually one-time events, a con-
tinuing revenue stream like municipal utility fees is
extremely appealing. After all, if FPU is already
making a profit (part of which already comes to the
city via franchise fees), why shouldn't all of that
profit go directly into the city coffers to benefit the
city's taxpayers?
Sound good? Heck, it sounds terrific! Until you
stop for a nanosecond and realize that the profit
they are promoting is actually coming from the tax-
payers' pockets (those are your pockets). And if that
isn't scary enough, what do you think will happen
when the city suddenly needs 'a quick fix to handle
one of its regular financial crises? Well, the electric
rates will go up, of course, generating more "profit"
And as we all know, more profit is a good thing,
unless you're the one paying it instead of receiving
it. As the sign in a store put it, "We cheated the last
customer, and are passing the savings on to you."
OK, now I get it

VIEWPOINT/LiBYWIuES/FERNANDINA BEACH


Super weekend at the municipal airport


this weekend! But this was no surprise.
Plans were begun with the Jacksonville
airport authorities in February 2002
followed by formal meetings in September 2003.
And it was expected that everything would progress
in an orderly manner.
First, we need to look at a brief history of the air-
port, the people involved at Fernandina Beach
Municipal Airport, services provided for the aircraft
crew and passengers, what aircraft were expected
and the impact of an enormous amount of aircraft
traffic on the community.
The airport was used by,bthe Navy frop.q

to the city of Fernandina Beach as an airport. John
McGill became the fixed base operator owner
(FBO) in 1998 and his son, Sean McGill, the manag-
er in 2001.
The personnel at the airport had been specifical-
ly trained to meet the special needs of the crew and
passengers on the aircraft this Super Bowl week-
end. There were nine linemen ready to be of service
and five people trained for the counter. There was
special training for the linemen and counter person-
nel to speed up transportation of people to and from
their aircraft.
The services offered by the fixed base operator
(FBO) were many and systematically planned.
More than 100 aircraft were expected and an esti-
mated 30,000 gallons of fuel would need to be
pumped. These aircraft varied from small two-seater
Cessnas to aircraft with 100-foot wingspans.
Probably 800 to 1,000 people arrived on the island in
aircraft. This equates to many rooms and homes
rented and restaurants visited.
Over 50 automobiles were expected to be rented
and all of this had been planned and anticipated by
the management Catering with a local restaurant,

available for the crew interested in hanging out at
the FBO. Even free golf at Royal Amelia Golf
Course was available for anyone interested on
Sunday. Always there is communication with the
weather and any airport advisories for the pilots.
There was a special airport temporary tower on
the field to aid with the many anticipated aircraft
landing at the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport.
This tower made the landings and takeoffs at the
airport much safer. Emergency vehicles and fire
truck provided by the city were on duty at all times.
All of this made the environment much safer and
was greatly appreciated by everyone.
Finally, it must be said that the McGills and the
personnel at the Fernandina Beach Municipal
Airport, because of planning and foresight, did a

VIEWPOINT/BOB MOORE/FERNANDINA BEACH



Citv must enforce tree ordinance


A after reading the recent Viewpoint about
the impracticality of the city's current tree
ordinance ("Tree for a tree' is an afford-
able solution," Jan. 28), I felt a need to
offer a different perspective based on my personal
experiences.
The city's recent actions to properly interpret
and enforce the city's tree ordinance can be directly
tied to a lawsuit by a developer against me, my
neighbors, my entire subdivision and the city. This
developer initiated a lawsuit to overturn a deed
restriction that designated an L-shaped natural
buffer easement 30 feet wide on the western side
of the property and 50 feet wide on the southern
side that abutted Lakewood subdivision on their
5.6-acre parcel off Will Hardee Road. This developer
had already clearcut the northern 4.7 acres of the
property.
Yes, they completed a tree removal application in,
which they stated there were only four trees that
were 12 inches or more in diameter to be removed.
They did not submit a tree survey as required by
the city's ordinance to validate their claim. The city
issued the tree removal permit in November 2003,
based on the information supplied by the developer
in the application and with no inspection by the city.
The city has subsequently been provided with
photographic evidence showing that the property
that was clearcut contained an estimated 1,000 to
1,200 oak trees with a diameter of 5 inches or
greater that were protected under the city's tree
ordinance. As of this writing, the city is still consid-
ering what action, if any, will be taken against the
developer for this violation.
Not content with the land they had already
cleared, the developer wanted to encroach on the
buffer areas and filed suit against the adjacent prop-
erty owners (including me), our homeowners' asso-
ciation and the city claiming the deed restriction
was illegal. After incurring substantial legal fees


The property that was clearcut con-
tained an estimated 1.000 to 1,200
oak trees with a diameter of5 inches
or greater that were protected under
the city's tree ordinance.

that drained our homeowners.association's bank
account, we agreed to a court-approved mediated
settlement.
This agreement granted the developer the right
to clear trees into the first 15 feet of the buffer -
but the removal had to be conducted in full compli-
ance with the city's tree ordinance. To accurately
record the number of protected trees in the buffer,
the city paid for a certified tree survey to be com-
pleted. This survey documented that there were
more than 250 protected (5 inches diameter or
greater) trees in the total buffer area. The developer
has removed approximately 500 diameter inches of
trees from this buffer area to this point, still without
submitting a tree replacement plan and getting it
approved in accordance with the tree ordinance
requirements.
Had the city not done the survey, there would
not have been any indisputable evidence of the
exact number of trees that were removed from the
buffer.
Immediately after the settlement was accepted, I
took on the responsibility to ensure that the devel-
oper fully complied with the tree ordinance. The
task was more than I ever imagined it would be. It
quickly became obvious that the city staff member I
was dealing with did not have a correct understand-
ing of the tree ordinance requirements. This was
not a matter of interpretation of a gray area, it was a


flat-out incorrect understanding of some of the ordi-
nance's main requirements such as requiring the
replacement of trees and the need to submit a tree
replacement plan before the trees are removed. If
the trees are removed before the survey and
replacement plan is submitted, who's to say how
many trees might be removed?
After stories were spread about me being a
"crazed man patrolling the property with a hatchet"
(I had retrieved a hammer and nail from my house
so the city employee could nail a "stop order"
notice); and being passed around from the planning
department to the city manager and city attorney, I
realized this was too much for one person. I enlisted
the aid of Concerned Friends of Fernandina and
they have been magnificent in helping to clear
through the bureaucracy.
They have facilitated meetings with
Commissioner Ken Walker and the city manager as
well as with the new members of the planning
department responsible for the review of tree
removal applications and enforcement of the city's
tree ordinance. All of these efforts have resulted in
the city's planning department now having a com-
plete and accurate understanding of the tree ordi-
nance requirements and, most importantly, a will-
ingness to enforce it.
While one can offer arguments as to whether the
current tree ordinance's objective of "no net loss of
trees" is economically practical, there can be no
argument that to achieve that stated objective then
there has to be a one-for-one replacement of
removed trees. This is what the tree ordinance
requires and this is what all property owners should
be held accountable to until such time as the ordi-
nance is changed.
All ordinances should be enforced 100 percent of
the time, as a failure to do so only encourages
favoritism and a disregard for compliance with other
important ordinances.

Best friends try their hand at watercolors


Jim Shaw, retired
Dr. Neil Coleman. retired
watercolorists
Retired? Sitting on a porch
watching a sunset? Not Dr. Neil
Coleman and Jim Shaw. For
these self-avowed "best friends,"
it is time to try new things. Like
making new friends and learning
to paint watercolors.
Coleman, a cardiologist in his
last life, started painting four
years ago. "I always wanted to
try it and never'had time. I saw a
notice in the paper that the
Amelia Arts Academy was offer-
ing classes." He followed his
dream. His first class was with
Bill Mauer, a talented watercol-


with
Dickie Anc


orist and popular teacher who
lives six months on Amelia
Island and six months in Cannes,
France. Mauer told Coleman
what supplies he needed to pur-
chase and where to get them.
What is more fun than finding
something new you love to do?
Sharing it with a friend. Coleman
and his wife, Imogene, met Shaw
and his wife, Sandy, after moving
to Amelia Island. The couples


enjoyed many of the same
things, including attending the
Jacksonville Symphony. Coleman
encouraged Shaw to join him in
the watercolor classes and soon
Shaw had acquired the supplies
and joined the enthusiastic group
that meets at the Peck Center
every Friday morning.
Shaw enjoyed a successful
career in the printing business
and employed artists, but never
thought of himself as a potential
artist. He affectionately calls
Coleman "the doctor" and says,
"The doctor is the real artist I
am just a beginner, but I have a
lot of fun." Coleman disagrees
and is enthusiastic about how
quickly his friend took to water-
colors. -


Family celebrates a trio of birthdays


To God be the glory, for all he has done, espe-
cially for allowing us to witness such a blessed
event. A celebration of love was given to Mother
Annie Lee Johnson, Elder Charlie Jones and
Mother Martha Lee Jones. Mother Annie and
I Elder Jones are brother and sister. Mother
Martha Lee is Elder Jones's wife of more than 60
years.
Family and friends gathered to celebrate God's
blessings of 91 years for Mother Annie, 89 years
for Elder Jones and 81 for Mother Martha. All
three were born and raised in the Sand Hill area
and are members of the Jones, Albertie and Grant
family.
Through many dangers, toils and snares, they
have already come. Twas God's grace that
brought them this far, and God's grace will lead
them home.
A beautiful setting of purple and gold, spon-
sored by their children, welcomed other family
and friends. There were five generations of family
present for Mother Annie. At the time of the cele-
bration there were nine living children. Clarence,
her oldest, died in 1972, and now Glenn Melton

Recently the two had an
artist's dream come true. They
had their own art show, "Best
Friends," held at Eileen's Art &
Antiques. A large crowd jammed
the gallery side of the shop and
both artists sold several paint-
ings. The sales benefitted the
Amelia Arts Centre, an organiza-
tion that Shaw helped found and
for which he is vice president.
The two sat together beaming
as the enthusiastic crowd sipped
wine and admired the paintings
of the two best friends. Coleman
was surprised by his brother,
also a doctor, who flew in for the
event. Coleman chuckled, "My

Commit to put on the fll armor of God in your life


While visiting in the
UK several years
ago, I was excited to
attend a demonstra-
tion on medieval warfare. The old
history major in me just loves
these kinds of events. These kind
of attractions however, tend to
send my children scurrying for
some other (any other) possible
activity.
At this particular demonstra-
tion a volunteer was selected
from the audience to model the
various pieces of armament. The
young man they chose was of a
medium build but obviously very
strong because he was able to
withstand the weight of all the


individual
pieces of
armor
o "r strapped to
S his body. It
took, what I
thought, a
tremendous
amount of
time to equip
Conrad this volunteer
Sharps but once
.completed
the docents
PULPIT assured'us
NOTES that he was
prepared for
the battles of the day his arma-
ment represented.


What can we learn from this,
given that in our lives we too
must face many battles? As disci-
ples of Jesus Christ, much
depends on how we have spiritu-
ally armored ourselves how
we have prepared our minds and
our faith with the Word of God.
God wants to strengthen us and
equip us for the task of spiritual
battle. He wants to prepare us for
victorious living that honors and
glorifies himn.
I am reminded of Paul's admo-
nition to the Ephesians that they
should prepare themselves for
spiritual battle by putting on the
"full armor of God." Paul writes:
"Therefore put on the full armor of


God, so that when the day of evil
comes, you may be able to stand
your ground, and after you have
done everything, to stand. Stand
firm then, with the belt of truth
buckled around your waist, with
the breastplate of righteousness in
place. In addition to all this, take
up the shield offaith, with which
you can extinguish all the flaming
arrows of the evil one. Take the
helmet of salvation and the sword
of the spirit, which is the word of
God." (Ephesians 6:13-14, 16-17)
If you want to be a serious dis-
ciple, ask yourself how much
time and how much effort you
have put into reading and incor-
porating God's Word into your


life. Are you prepared to live in
righteousness and truth? Are you
preparing yourself for the spiritu-
al battles that wait, confident in
the presence and power of the
Holy Spirit to build you up, to
protect you and see you through?
Every era of history has its
battles, and each requires specif-
ic armament necessary for victo-
ry. The spiritual battles we face in
our world, and specifically in our
culture, are often frightening and
disheartening. Today however,
God stands ready to equip us
with armament we cannot even
fully comprehend until in the
midst of battle we realize the
power and providence of God to


defeat evil.
Let us therefore commit our-
selves to put on the full armor of
God in our lives. Let's take the
time to develop a plan for reading
God's Word, and for living God's
Word within the context of min-
istry in our community. This is
the kind of obedient faith that will
prepare us and armor us for life's
toughest battles! Indeed, take
heart as you prepare, for despite
the fact that the battle for our
world rages, the victory has
already been won in Jesus Christ
our Lord.
The Rev. Conrad C. Sharps is
pastor of First Presbyterian Church
in Fernandina Beach.

Disclose defects to home buyers


Giant mantids a rare sight


CHARLES J. KOVALESKI
For the News-Leader

Although Florida is not among the 32 states
with disclosure laws on the books that require
home sellers to reveal potentially negative proper-
ty issues to buyers, Florida case law does support'
seller disclosure requirements through case law
dating back to 1986.
Since then, a written seller's disclosure has
become, a critical part of a home sale transaction
in Florida a document that addresses every-
thing from the property's land and structural con-
dition to its plumbing, roofing and electrical sys-
tems.
Seller disclosure standards in Florida cover
obvious defects, which are visible to the buyer;
and material defects, which are not readily
visible, such as a crack in an exterior wall
hidden by a bush.
In recent months, the issues of disclosing
the presence of mold in the home and whether
the property had ever been used as a metham-
phetamine lab have also been addressed in
Florida.
Sellers should always respond honestly to buy-
ers' direct questions about the condition of the
home they are selling. A simple test for disclo-
sures is: If you're asking yourself if something
should be disclosed, it's probably a good idea to
disclose it
Real estate studies have shown that disclosing
defects rarely compel an interested buyer to turn
away from the deal; in fact, in most situations the
defect becomes a negotiating point when deter-
mining the final sale price.
If you have any questions about what should
and shouldn't be disclosed, ask your real estate
attorney, but in general, you should be willing to
volunteer problems such as:
Malfunctions in the major systems of the
home, such as the foundation, plumbing, electrical
system, heating and air conditioning, siding, win-
dows, doors, walls and ceilings
Damage'to property due to fire, floods, hurri-
canes, sink holes, etc.
Environmental hazards such as lead-based

paint (for homes built before 1978), asbestos,
radon gas, contaminated soil or water, and mold
Problems with termites
Work completed without building permits,
such as wiring an outdoor speaker system your-
self, or carpentry or plumbing jobs
Hire an inspector before you put your home on
the market, so you know what issues you should
reveal to buyers and possibly negotiate for
repairs. Ignoring problems and hoping they won't
get noticed doesn't help, because a prospective
buyer's inspector will likely discover them. If not,
the buyer will likely find them later, and you could
be sued.
Remember, sellers are required only to reveal
a home's defects, not to necessarily fix them. As
long as the defect is disclosed, the seller is not
liable if the buyer chooses not to make repairs
down the road.
If you are a buyer who suspects all is not being
revealed, consider asking the following questions
for more information:
Why is the seller selling the home?
How much did the seller originally pay for
the home?
How was the asking price determined?
Are there any neighborhood issues that
might affect the home? ,
Revealing your home's flaws up-front to a
buyer might make you feel uncomfortable in the
beginning, but full disclosure always does more
good than harm.
Most of the time, a buyer who is truly interest-
ed in your home'will use the information only as a
negotiating point.
And in the end, you will want to be afforded
the same honest, forthcoming treatment when
you are buying your new home.

Q.A bug was on the edge of

ing like a prehistoric critter of
the first order. What is it and
does it do good or bad things to
my growing efforts? SG

A.I was so excited that you
-. sent me these pictures and
indeed your insect does seem
reminiscent of prehistoric times.
I, in turn, sent a copy to the
University of Florida for an
expert opinion, but I suspected it
was some kind of tree insect Dr.
Lyle Buss
identified it
as a grizzled
mantid,
Gonatista
f >grisea. All
mantids are
predators,
which
means they
eat other
Beck insects and
or in most
cases they
o are not very
Garden discriminat-
Talk ing. By that
we mean
they will eat any insect including
each other. Therefore, you need
not worry about them bothering
you or your plants. In fact, some
people have been known to keep
them as pets. Although I must
warn you, one of the agents in
the panhandle was pinched
severely when the praying man-
tid grasped him between his
thumb and finger. Ouch! These
insects are usually large; many
are well over 2 inches in length.
They can be green, brown or
mottled as was the insect you
found in your


species, but
over 1,800 are
found world-
wide. Mantids
are the only
insects that
Azaleas need have a freely

angle shape.
The grizzled
mantid you saw isofta llg a
hark mantid because it spenids a
great deal of time on tree bark
hunting its prey and often col-
lects bits of lichen to help it cam-
ouflage itself against the tree. It
is quite a wonderful insect and
one not often seen by the general
public. I am so glad you took
time to share it with us.

QThe lot next door was heav-
.ily treed but has just been
partially cleared to make way for
a house. As a result my azaleas
on that side now receive much
more light and a good deal of
direct sun. How will this affect

straggly and I'm thinking I
should cut them back after the
blooming season to allow them
to fill in. Will this work? RW

A .Azaleas prefer dappled sun-
-. light (partial shade). They
will survive in full sun but devel-
op insect problems (lace bug).
The leaves will get a speckled
look or bronzing (almost sun-
burned). Cutting them back, I
believe, will have little impact
except to reduce their size and
food source. You might consider
relocating them or planting some
larger shrubs or trees nearby.
Several light prunings early in
the active growing season will
result in compact growth and
numerous branches on the pres-
ent season growth. This pruning
should be done after blooming
has ceased.

A s a courtesy to otlrcustomers, I have been
preparing and submitting tree removal
applications to the city of Fernandina
Beach. We could easily ask the customer
to secure their own permit and we'd be glad to do the
work but why put that burden on the customer?
In 2004, a total of 151 tree permits were issued.
Seventy-seven permits were issued to local tree
companies, 60 permits issued to individual proper-
ty owners or developers and 14 permits issued to
the city of Fernandina Beach. A reflected total of
254 trees were specified on these permits, exclud-
ing the number of trees lost during the storms.
Last year, 98 percent of our applications were
approved, I percent conditioned and the other 1
percent flat denied. I know of the conditioned per-
mits we had, their application did not meet city cri-
teria for removal, but would be approved if they
purchased a replacement tree for the trees being
removed. Those customers were directed to the
city's Park and Recreation Department, to partici-
pate in the tree replacement program. A conven-
ient alternative a tree for a tree what a great
and affordable solution!
But not so fast there is a "no net loss of trees
within the city. Ordinance 2001-18, passed Dec. 4,
2001, states this intent Yes, a very good intention
but an unrealistic one at best. An existing ordi-
nance comes to light by the new planner, unfortu-
nately insulting the integrity of the previous plan-
ner as "she misinterpreted the ordinance," when
the simple truth is it has never been enforced.
Everyone has a boss someone dropped the ball
for the past three years. Now, after all this time,
the ordinance is in full enforcement
The expensive reality of this ordinance is: for
the total diameter of tree you wish to have
removed, you must equal or exceed that diameter
with replacement trees. For example, if you have
three trees which are damaged, dead and diseased
- through no fault of your own and say the
total diameter is 54 inches you must purchase
trees that equal or exceed that same diameter and


The simple truth is the city
tree ordinance has never
been enforced Now. after all
this time, the ordinance is in
full enforcement.


ensure their growth for a full year. That sounds
good, until you understand the impact it has on
your bank account. So you replace this combined
diameter of 54 inches with 6 live oaks 3 inches
each, 6 southern magnolias 3 inches each and 6
red cedars inches each. Total 18 trees at least
85,000 installed.
I used the "heritage" trees as an example.
There are less expensive trees and larger caliper
trees to use. But these replacement trees must be
on the city's approved and permissible tree table.
And just in case you don't have enough room on
your own property to plant these replacement
trees, you could plant them within the city limits at
schools, churches, parks or cemeteries. Whatever
your fancy, but you must include your tree replace-
ment site plan at the time you submit your tree
removal application. No plan no permit.
This ordinance screams of economic strain for
the average John Q. Citizen in Fernandina Beach
that meets all the tree removal criteria. The city of
Fernandina, by not amending this ordinance, is
inviting more of a tree loss by residents doing the
work themselves or hiring "shade tree" companies
to come in on weekends or after hours to remove
the tree(s). Who is going to tell? You are just help-
ing your neighbor save money money he does-
n't have to spend on tree replacement.
The city will also be quietly creating a safety
hazard to homes, personal property and people.
For homeowners that have dead, damaged or dis-


eased trees, who simply cannot afford to comply
with the current tree replacement ordinance, what
other choice in the matter do they have except to
wait until it falls? Then they will experience the
burden of structural repairs, possible medical bills
and dealing with their homeowners' insurance -
if the claim would even be covered at all. And yes,
that has also happened. The insurance company
has canceled the policy until the tree was
removed. The homeowner is in a financial stran-
glehold of ordinance and affordability. The city has
successfully relieved itself from any and all liability
by enforcing this ordinance.
The city's minimum penalty for violation can be
read in section 110-220. with a minimum fine not
exceeding S500 per violation, 60 days in jail, or
both. Plus, you still must submit a restoration plan
in 30 days from the unauthorized removal. If you
fail to do this, it will result in double the fine. Once
again, it looks good in writing but who is going
to enforce this?
As a tree company, we strongly urge the cus-
tomer, whether city or county residents, to replace
the tree(s). We offer them our wholesale price that
we receive from nurseries to encourage purchase.
Trees are a vital part of our environment and com-
munity. It just makes good citizenship and com-
mon sense to replace "a tree for a tree."
My intent is to better inform city residents of
the financial obligations that are now expected of
them from the city of Fernandina beach. The city
is currently in the "draft" process of a Unified
Land Development Code. Workshops are being
held and are open to the public for education, .
questions, input and opinion. I urge all city resi-
dents to read this ordinance in its entirety at
www.fernandinabeachflorida.org or get a copy
from the Community Planning Department and
attend this workshop or contact your local city
commissioner.
This ordinance, with your input, should be
amended so that compliance of this ordinance can
be more easily achieved.

they are mature they may not
germinate or grow. Test the seed
ahead of time by placing it in
water, if it floats then the seed is
not good. The outer covering of
the seed should be removed and
you should wear gloves when
working with these seeds
because they contain a poison.
You can plant the seeds horizon-
tally (not point down) about 1
inch deep (which is shallow).
The top of the seed should be
just at soil level. It would be best
to use clean potting soil or sand.
Do not fertilize them. Keep them
out of direct sun and the soil
should be moist but not wet It
may take them several months to
sprout so do not be discouraged.

one other appears to be weak.
Should I collect the dead bird for
anyone? DM

A. I called the local health
department and they are no
longer collecting dead birds.
Originally they were collecting
dead birds to help monitor West
Nile Virus. They now have their
own birds

they gather
important
data on the
disease. I

in your
yard, col-
lect them (using a shovel or
gloved hands), put them in a

described to me was probably a
starling and may have died
because of the virus, pesticide
poisoning or natural causes. By
the way. the original concern
over West Nile Virus in birds
was regarding crows, but the
virus has been found in approxi-

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2005 AROUND TOWN News-Leader


A different kind of Valentine


Have you gotten to know the
women at the Barnabas Center yet?
What an impressive group they are,
both paid staff and volunteers. We
became acquainted when I wrote a
City Sidebar about their "House of
Possibilities" featuring the Pippi
Longstocking House last November.
Their drive, their intelligence and
their desire to help others in our
community make them a remarkably
successful group of women.
Gail Niedernhofer is one of those
impressive women. She's only lived
here 4 1/2 years, but has wasted no
time in becoming a vital contributor
to our island life. She comes to us via
a cotton plantation house that she
and her husband restored near
Manassas, Va.; before that, she'd run
a blood bank in Ann Arbor, Mich.
She went on to explain that she had
once upon a'time done the "kid-real
estate-antiques-Reagan White
House" thing. I didn't dare ask what
she'd done in her spare time.
Now Gail runs the food bank at
Baranabas; more about that later,
because when Gail called me the
other day, she wanted to talk about
one of her other pet projects, the
Guardian ad Litem program in
Nassau County.
A guardian's role, Gail explained,
is to be an advocate for Nassau
County's children who are allegedly
abused, neglected or abandoned,
and who are now involved in court
proceedings for one reason or anoth-
er. Specific duties include gathering
information and reporting it to the


Cara Curtin

San
SIDEBA261-5845

court, monitor-
ing the case to
be sure the
child involved is
receiving the
care and atten-
tion he or she
needs, and then
to be a
spokesperson
for that child
during all of the
palavering and
legal wrangling
that we adults
are so good at.
The reason
for Gail's cry for


help becomes evident when you
realize that we have 72 cases on the
docket as I write this, but only 29
guardians to be their advocate.
Forty-three more cases are waiting
to have guardians assigned to them;
if these 43 cases come to court
before a guardian is assigned, the
children involved will go to court
with no one to speak on their behalf.
With all of the talent, brains and
energy we have on this island, I
should think we'd be able to respond
to the children of this county when
they cry for help. Call Gail at
Barnabas at 261-7000 if you'd like to
be part of the solution. The next
training session starts on Monday,
which I think is entirely appropriate;
you can be a different kind of
Valentine this year.
When you do talk to Gail, be sure
to ask her about the Barnabas food


bank. She mentioned to me that the
shelves are quite bare these days,
but we still have hungry families.
Since eating is one of my favorite
hobbies, I picked up on this chal-
lenge right away. And since I was
taught to fix twice as much food as
necessary so no one would go to bed
hungry, I was quite alarmed at the
thought that perhaps not everyone
around here goes to bed with a full
belly. The next time we go to Publix,
let's add one of those Barnabas
brown bags of food to our carts.
Better yet, bring $5 worth of food
to the Sailor's Wife Book Exchange
(702 Centre St., in Eileen's Art &
Antiques Centre) and I'll give you a
free paperback in return. Gail men-
tioned that she had only one jar of
peanut butter on the shelf when we
talked the other day, so let's call this
the PB&J Sale. Of course, you can
bring any nonperishable food items
to me, but try to include some
peanut butter and jelly for the kids.
To keep from going bankrupt
when thousands of you flock to my
shop to swap your food for one of my
books, please limit your visits to me
to once a week. And since we want
to replenish the Barnabas food
larder quickly, let's put a deadline of
March 11 on this offer. That's a
month to the day, so even those of
you who procrastinate as badly as I
do can get around to putting this
quick errand on your schedule.
Kids and peanut butter; they just
go together just about as well as
reading and eating, don't they?

Hospitals give to FCCJ's


nursing programs


Baptist Health, Brooks
Rehabilitation Hospital, Mayo
Clinic, St. Luke's Hospital, St.
Vincent's Medical Center and
Shands Jacksonville recently
agreed to join resources and
donate a combined $380,000 to
Florida Community College's nurs-
ing (R.N.) program.
The donation, to be delivered
over the course of three years, will
!help retain current nursing faculty
,and aid in recruiting new nursing
faculty.
"With this generous gift,
;Florida Community College, the
fourth largest producer of associ-
ate in science degree nursing grad-
uates in the nation, will be able to
recruit and retain the best nurs-
ing faculty," said college President
,Steven Wallace.
"This gift also affirms the con-
dtinuing partnership the college has
'enjoyed with local health care
*providers," said Wallace. The fund-
ing is earmarked to help retain cur-
rent nursing faculty and to help fill
faculty vacancies.
Additionally, Memorial Hospital
Jacksonville, Orange Park Medical
Center, and Specialty Hospital
Jacksonville have agreed to
provide funding totaling $250,000
over a three-year period to support
the associate degree nursing pro-,
gram.
According to North Campus
President Barbara Darby, college
administrators projected what it
would cost to retain the current
faculty at a competitive rate, along
with the cost to recruit and com-
pensate new faculty members.


They then proposed their plan to
local hospitals, seeking funding,
with the promise of maintaining
current admission levels and
numbers of graduates to meet
the unprecedented need for nurs-
es.
"Florida Community College's
Department of Nursing currently
has eight full-time faculty vacan-
cies," said Darby. "There is, how-
ever, no shortage of students seek-
ing admission to the nursing
program. In 2002-3, we had almost
650 qualified students who were
turned away from our program at.
North Campus because we can
only accommodate a finite num-
ber of students per year. With the
generous assistance of the hospi-
tals and medical centers, we can
offer competitive salaries to those
master's-degree prepared nurses
who are ready and willing to teach,
and in turn, offer more students
the chance to step into this caring
profession."
Robert Walters, Mayo
Clinic/St. Luke's Administrator,
representing the CEOs of the con-
tributing hospitals, stated "Our
patients' needs for high-quality
nursing care can only be met if
there are a sufficient number of
well-trained nurses available. This
requires high-quality teachers. Our
hospitals are committed to this ini-
tiative which protects, and ideally
enhances, patientcare."
North Campus is located at
4501 Capper Road. For informa-
tion about nursing or other health-
care programs at North Campus,
call (904) 646-2300.

Braddock. The ate lunch at Brett's
Waterway Cafe and enjoyed a walk
down Centre Street, said Lissa
Braddock. They returned at 2 p.m.
Lissa Braddock said this year,
the students' right to invite a friend
had to be waived because there
would have been too many to take
the ride.
"The criteria is so stringent, that
generally there are only 3 or 4, but
this time were six," she said.
"Because there were six, we did-
n't have a limo big enough to
accommodate 12," she said.
Actually this is the second con-
secutive year that more than 4 stu-
dents qualified.

Council, a group of teachers and
parents, paid for the "limo" ride and
lunch.
The state gives the advisory
council a certain amount of money
per student each year, "to do with
what they feel benefits the students,
so they agreed to pay for this," Carol
Braddock said.
In order to qualify for the lim-
ousine ride, the students must
achieve a 5.5 or better score on the
writing Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT), have a
score of at least 340 on the reading
and math FCAT, and a score of 80
or better on the Norm Reference
(NRT) ,of the FCAT. They also had


to have been on the A-B honor roll
all year, have ,no more than three
absences and no suspensions.
This year students ordered from
menus faxed to, the school prior, to
the trip, said Carol Braddock ...
She said last year, they ordered
their desserts and asked the restau-
rant to hold them so they wouldn't
have to carry them during their
walk. Then they took their walk
down Centre Street and forgot to go
back and pick up their cheesecake
and brownies. They were on their
way home when they remembered
the desserts and went all the way
back to get them. .
"We were going to get those
desserts," she said. .

Super


time at


big game

Most people who
closely follow
sports have their
own personal
checklist of events that they
would like to attend at some
point in their lifetime. I have
been to the Masters, the U.S.
Open Golf Tournament and
the U.S. Open Tennis
Tournament, but still have a
long list of things not yet
done. I have yet to make it to
the Daytona 500, the
Kentucky Derby, an NCAA
men's basketball champi-
onship game and the World
Series to name a few. But as
of last week, I can now cross
the Super Bowl off my list of
things to do.
I was fortunate to receive
an invitation to go along with
three of my friends for club
section seating at Alltel
Stadium. Like most people,
we would make a full day of it
and arrived about six hours
before kickoff. After some
quick tailgaiting, we headed
down to the stadium grounds
to take in the sights and
sounds.
Looking at all the various
Patriot and Eagles fans was
quite entertaining. I was
amazed at the number of
team songs the Eagles fans
recited throughout the after-
noon as well as during the
game. It reminded me of a
scene in the movie "The Hunt
for the Red October," where
the Russian sailors all break
into song, as I watched not
knowing any of the words.
After listening to a free
concert outside the stadium
by the band Kansas (who
kny they had four or five hit
songs) we then headed inside
the club section. Once inside,
it was almost as if I had
stepped into the ESPYs with
celebrities and star athletes
everywhere.
During the evening,'I was
able to meet former heavy-
weight boxing champion
Evander Holyfield, former
Georgia Tech and Detroit
Pistons star John Salley, for-
mer Bills quarterback Jim
Kelly, Hall of Famer Dr. J
(Julius Erving) and Sports
Illustrated swimsuit model
Marissa Miller.
They were all very nice
and engaging and were more
than willing to stop for peo-
ple, pose for pictures and
sign autographs. It really was
unbelievable, and the game
hadn't even gotten started.
Finally kickoff was
approaching and I took my
seat. Although I have been to
several Jaguar games, this
was truly something special.
You could feel the excitement
in the crowd and it was a fan-
tastic time, even though I had
no real interest in who won or
lost.
Paul McCartney sounded
great and the light and card
show was really phenomenal.
Wayne Weaver has indicat-
ed that he will begin to apply .
again to host a Super Bowl,
likely after a five-year wait It
was a great moment for our
area and the city of
Jacksonville, and truly some-
thing I will never forget.

Pirates cap

the season

tonight at

West Nassau

BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Pirates head to Callahan
tonight to take on West Nassau's
Warriors in the regular season
finale. The 14-9 Fernandina Beach
High School boys basketball team
beat Episcopal Monday but fell to
Bolles the following night.
"Episcopal was an opportunity
for us to let everybody play," FBHS
Coach Matt Schreiber said. "I think
everybody played at least eight
minutes."
The Pirates jumped out to a 12-
2 lead-on the Eagles but were
matched point-for-point in the third
and fourth quarters.
"We did a pretty good job defen-
sively of not really letting them get
easy shots," Schreiber said. "We
were able to use our depth to keep
fresh people in the game and wear
them down. It was a little disap-
pointing we couldn't build on our
lead.
"It's a hard balance between
knowing that your seniors, most of
them. are n-ever going to play bas-
ketball for their school again and
wanting tlu make sure they can get
as much out .,f the experience as
possible and then also get a little
indication ot whatyou have coming
back next year and making sure
you're as ready as you can be for
your district tournamienl."
The Pirate- won 54-43 over
Epi.s.pal .vith JonAlbertie leading
the way with 13 points and six
rebounds. He also had four steals,
an assist and a blocked shot.
Terrence Albertie had eight points
and five rebounds.
"\'e got off to a slow start
against Bulles." Schreiber said.
W\e played them even from
halfway through first quarter on.
"We really got strong perform-
ances from seniors Casey Lowe,
J.D. Phillips and Otis Green and
also Marcus Johnson."
The Pirates were edged by
Bolles 62-57. Lowe scored 20
points, Johnson had 13, Green had
10 and Phillips chipped in eight.
Ja'Sean Washington pulled down
eight boards.
The junior varsity plays at 6
p.m. tonight and the varsity tilt is
7:30 p.m. at West Nassau.
Schreiber said he expects to
play Bishop Kenny Wednesday at
Raines in the first round of the dis-
trict tournament. The tournament
continues Feb. 18-19.

Lady Pirates advance
The Fernandina Beach High
School girls basketball team defeat-
ed Raines 67-49 Tuesday in the
District 54A tournament at Bishop
Kenny to advance to the semifinal
against Andrew Jackson Thursday.
A win would put the Lady Pirates
in the title game tonight.
Laci Roberts led FBHS with 13
points. Wooda Smith scored 12,
India Johnson had 11 and Cassie
Justyn chipped in 10.


Unbeaten Maniacs win crown at Cape Coast tournament


The Amelia Island Maniacs 12-and-under
volleyball team swept the field at the Cape
Coast tournament on Saturday to capture the
crown and remain undefeated for the season.
The Maniacs went 3-0 in pool play, defeat-
ing Big Lake South 25-17, 25-15, Cape Coast
25-8, 25-23 and Orlando Volleyball Red Team
25-22, 25-18. The Maniacs used their supe-
rior serving and passing to run an effective
attack that kept their opponents on the
defensive, according to Coach Joe Cockrell.
The semifinal match against Florida Elite
was the tightest match of the tournament,
according to Cockrell. The Maniacs started
slowly and lost the first game 25-21 and then
jumped back to win the second 25-16. Just
when momentum seemed to have swung
their way, the Maniacs fell behind quickly
and were facing eight match points down 14-
6. Hope Swan stepped up to serve at 14-7 and
delivered nine big serves to clinch the vic-
tory for the Maniacs.
The Maniacs then played their strongest
match in the final to defeat Big Lake (No. 1)
25-18, 25-17.
"The match against Florida Elite was the
biggest comeback I've ever been a part of,"

Cockrell said. "After Hope served two or
three serves, Coach Ellen (Daley) and I
commented to each other that we would
rather have no other player serving at such
a time. She's a fighter. I called Hope a real
bulldog because of her determination. It
was meant to be a compliment, but since
she's a Gator fan she didn't appreciate it.
"Most of the teams we play have only
two or three strong servers. Most of our
players can hit strong overhand serves.
Also, we don't settle for just getting the ball
over the net. We run an offense and try to
set up an attack on each point. We're doing
really well, but we still have much to work
on. We've played some good teams, but
there are some powerhouses out there that
we haven't faced yet."
Top servers for the day were Brittany
Cumberland with 37, Emmalee Bales with 3,
and Swan with 28. Bales had eight kills and
Caroline Garner had 10 assists.
Other team members who all played and
contributed are Tori Carter, Abby Cockrell,
Lizzie Cumberland, Cori Kennett, Amelia
Mickler, Cameron Springer and Savannah
Young.

Bass fishing improves in rivers


good catches of "gator"
size sea trout coming
from the Eagle Bend
area of the Nassau River during
the falling tide. The catfish are

PHOTO COURTESY OF ECHOMUSIC
Fairfax, hailing from Nashville, was chosen one of the top "Americana"
bands of 2004.


CONCERTS Continued from 1B
vide rs" Thursday at West Nassau High School
* in Callahan, featuring Eldridge and
guest artists from Nashville. Tickets
4 are free for students and $5 for adults.
-. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tick-
ets can be purchased in advance at the
high school or at the door. Active duty
military with ID and their dependents
are admitted free.
The National Endowment for the
Arts has recognized Amelia Folk and
Heritage Arts for its educational activi-
ties and performances, and the NEA
helps in the funding of the free clinics.
Several Nashville composers and per-
forming artists will present free or low-
cost concerts for schoolchildren and
disabled adults around the county dur-
ing "Nassau to Nashville" week, includ-
ing events at Hilliard, Yulee and
Callahan.
The Southern Arts Federation and
S state Division of Cultural Affairs also
lend financial support to help keep
cover costs of travel, housing and
other expenses while artists perform
for less than their usual fees (some-
times for free). Ticket sales and corpo-
rate donations help make up the bal-
ance.
"Amelia Folk and Heritage Arts has
a mission statement of bringing art to
all walks of life to those whom,
because of economic, physical or geo-
graphic issues, might not have the
same access to the arts as our Amelia
Island residents," said board member
SLaura Minor in a press release.
Minor has produced shows for 15
years with artists at Carnegie Hall,
Lincoln Center and other major ven-
ues. Her company, Black Pearl Artists,
also produces shows with the USO for
troops fighting in Iraq, where she
recently toured with some of the
S* artists who are performing in Nassau
County.
"We try to vary our programs for
example, in the upcoming year we're
presenting dance from Turkey, Egypt
S* and Morocco one month, and then
well present notable jazz artists from
New York. We rotate our clinics to
include everybody, including the chil-
dren in Bryceville and patients at the


local VA hospital. I remember some-
thing Charlie Daniels once said to me
about bringing music to the folks who
can't always get to your music, espe-
cially disabled veterans coming in from
the front. He said that if they can stand
up for you, the least you can do is
make sure everyone gets a chance to
hear the music.
"I think that if anything can be said
of what we do at Amelia Folk and
Heritage Arts, it's that we try to be
good citizens by being democratic and
letting folks have a chance to be
exposed to different kinds of art. It's
just one small way to thank our sol-
diers because in many countries where
I've traveled, art is controlled by the
state you can't just read a poem or
dance or listen to bluegrass because
maybe someone else forbids it
Freedom of expression in art is a great
way to recognize our first amend-
ment."
A tribute to Hilliard native Lacy Van
Zant, patriarch of the legendary
Lynyrd Skynyrd band, is planned for
next year with special guest artists. No
location has been yet set for that event,
which will include historical displays
and information about the band consid-.
ered one of the most legendary
Southern rock bands in history.
"We have a lot of pride when it
comes to the fact that someone coming
from humble origins in Hilliard could
go on to raise children who wrote not
only about their humorous vision of
life in the South but also about serious
social issues such as fun control and
the realities of drug abuse," said
Amelia Folk and Heritage board mem-
ber James Parrish, a retired
Fernandina Beach police officer.
"You might not always agree with
Lynyrd Skynyrd's lyrics, or you might
love them, but they had some interest-
ing things to say. I think Lacy was
proud that his sons, through hard
work and talent, made such an impres-
sion on the world. When Lacy passed
away recently, Marines in Iraq said
they heard about it even over there.
We're hoping that we can collect sto-
ries from local folks who knew Lacy as
well as from artists who toured with
Skynyrd."


BROTHELS Continued from 2B
of the district and into a boarding school, where they will
have a chance at different lives. She encounters opposi-
tion from their parents and roadblocks from the Indian
bureaucracy, which seems to create jobs by requiring the
same piece of paper to be meaninglessly stamped,
marked, read or filed in countless different offices. She
goes almost mad trying to get a passport for Avijit, the
winner of the Amsterdam trip; of course with his back-
ground he lacks the "required" papers.
The film is narrated mostly by Briski, who is a good
teacher and brings out the innate intelligence of the chil-
dren as they use their cameras to see their world in a dif-
ferent way. The faces of the children are heartbreaking,
because we reflect that in the time since the film was fin-
ished, most of them have lost childhood forever, some
their lives. These wretched poor exist in a separate and
parallel universe, without an exit
The movie is a record by well-meaning people who
try to make a difference for the better, and succeed to a
small degree while all around them the horror continues
unaffected.

hero played by Glenn Kitchens who saves her from dan-
gerous situations.
Those in the audience will quickly recognize the con-
ventional types played by all the imaginary characters.
Even the "real" and feisty housekeeper, played by Lis
Ryan, seems familiar. Lydia, the leading lady type who is
a gold digger and temptress, is played by Karen Antworth;
Addie, the serving girl with compromised morals who is
always in distress, is played by Melissa Miller. Fiona, the
rigid spinster who seems to disapprove everything, is
played by Catherine Templeton. Jordan, a wily attorney who
reads the will, in which a (missing) fortune is mentioned,
is played by Al Ryan.
Then, of course, there is the very proper butler, perfectly
characterized by Geoffrey King. Even the butler's name,
"Cogburn," brings forth a visual image of the persona.
Linda McClane is producer of "Out of Sight... Out of
Murder," with Steve Reden as stage manager. The set, a
traditionally decorated room in the mansion, is beautiful-
ly done. And I must mention all the excellent work done
by all ACT volunteers to make this play and all ACT pro-
ductions "out of sight."

Black History Month on



WJCT Public Television


During Black History Month, WJCT Public
Television continues to present programming that
celebrates African-American history, culture and
contributions.
Leading the lineup is "Slavery and the Making of
America," a four-hour PBS series that chronicles the
institution of slavery in America. The series pre-
miered at 9 p.m. Feb. 9 and 16 and rebroadcasts in
its entirety on Feb. 20 at 3 p.m. on WJCT.
"Slavery and the Making of America" traces slav-
ery from its origins in 1619 when English settlers
in Virginia purchased 20 Africans from Dutch
traders through the arrival of the first 11 slaves
in New Amsterdam, the American Revolution, the
Civil War, the adoption of the 13th Amendment and
Reconstruction.
New perspectives challenge long-held notions
(such as the idea that slavery was strictly a
Southern institution), and highlight the contradic-
tions of a nation founded on the principle of "liberty
and justice for all" that embraced slavery. The series
features a score by Michael Whalen. Actor Morgan
Freeman narrates.


Additional programs in celebration of Black
History Month are highlighted below, in chronologi-
cal order. WJCTs Black History Month celebration
is made possible in part by Wachovia and Blue
Cross and Blue Shield of Florida.

WJCT Online at wjct.org and clicking on "Black
History."

"DeFord Bailey: A Legend Lost"
One of the first solo stars of the Grand Ole
Opry, DeFord Bailey was the most influential har-
monica player of the first half of the 20th century.
Despite such acclaim, he died quietly without

tle known story of how black musicians influenced
many of country music's legends. (Monday at 11:30
p.m.)
"Briars in the Cotton Patch: The Story of
Koinonia Farm"
This documentary explores Koinonia Farm, one
of the most daring social experiments in the South
during the last century. Blacks and whites lived
together on the Georgia farm, broke bread at the
same table and were paid the same wages. The
commune, started in 1942, became the target of
white anger with bombs, boycotts and shoot-
ings. Out of this violent history grew the worldwide
movement of Habitat for Humanity International.

this definitive biography reflects the intellectual
journey of a complex man whose ideas continue to
resonate. (Feb. 21 at 9 p.m.)
"An Unlikely Friendship"
In the early 1970s, Ann Atwater, a poor welfare
mother, and C.P. Ellis, the Exalted Grand Cyclops
of the Durham (North Carolina) Ku Klux Klan,
were on opposing sides of the debate over public
school integration. Initially, their relationship was
fraught with distrust
and hatred. Yet in working together and under-
standing one another, they formed a deep and lov-
ing friendship that continues to this day. (Feb. 21 at
11:30 p.m.)
