KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
People who live and work near
Nassau Sound were surprised
Thursday to learn of plans to build
a 97-slip marina on Big Talbot
Island within sight of Amelia
Island's south end.
"There's a viewscape coming
across that bridge," said Jody
Hetchka, co-owner of Kayak
Amelia, a business that rents
kayaks for quiet, nature-soaked
water tours of Big Talbot Island


State Park. 'You're heading toward
the park and see nothing but natu-
ral environment trees and beach-
es. It's all natural. This would total-
ly destroy the viewscape."
"It's insane, perhaps arrogant, to
put it there," said Pat Leary, an area
naturalist and conservationist who
volunteers in state park efforts. "It's
an extremely vulnerable location
- it's in a state preserve and an
aquatic preserve. And putting that
many boats there is a threat to the
natural resources of the area."

The tranquillity in Big Talbot Island is
hard to beat. To see a marina slapped in th
middle of it is unbelievable.'

city's planning department last
month to construct "Island Lodge
at Sawpit Creek," a marina, club-
house and swimming pool, as well


as a 57-space parking lot a

of land nestled between
Sound and Big Talbot Islan

Although its developers are
mum, plans for Nassau County's
largest shopping center indicate
a retailer like Target and a store
with a contractor's entrance like
The Home Depot.
And aside from ushering near-
ly two dozen new businesses to
the intersection of Chester Road
and AlA, the development could
also bring a new traffic signal*
Land clearing for the Shoppes
at Amelia Concourse, a sprawling
71-acre shopping center with 23
businesses rimming acres of park-
ing, is to begin next month.
The shopping center will be on
the northwest corner of the A1A
and Chester Road intersection and
will front both roads.
The nation's largest retail
developer. New York-based Kimco
Real y Corp., is the project's devel-
oper. Kimco is co-developing it
with the land's owners, brothers
Daniel, Gary and Johnny Dudley.
"It's going very well. We would-
n't be breaking ground if we did-
n't feel we could be very success-
ful," said Kaare Birkeland of
Birchland Development, a com-
mercial real estate consultant
retained by Kimco. "We're work-

lots of smaller ones. When we get
commitments on the bigger
parcels, we'll announce the whole
group."
Birchland is in an office in sub-
urban Minneapolis about 10
miles from the Target Corp.
national headquarters.
"It's possible we've looked at
that site, but we don't have any-
thing to announce for that area,"
said Target Corp. spokesperson
Aimee Sands. Sands noted that

Target opens 100 new stores
nationwide, but investigates 200
to 300 locations annually.
According to Kimco market-
ing materials for the center, several
"outparcels" and retail spots,
including the two "big box" retail-
ers, indicate plans for construc-
tion.
Of the two "big box" stores,
one covers 105,000 square feet,
not including its 34,500-square-
foot "garden center," and appears


to have a covered "contractor's
entrance." The other is a 125,6(10-
square-foot building with a 14,000-
square-foot garden center.
Sands said the building size for
a prototype Target store is 125,000
square feet. She said the sizes of
garden centers vary by location.

for The Home Depot Inc., said

American


Beach seeks


more 'fun'
GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Bill Jennings has happy memo-
ries of visiting American Beach as
a youngster.
"I used to come up here all the
time in the summer," Jennings said.
"What I remember is having fun."
Not long ago Jennings, direc-
tor of the Orlando International
Airport, and his wife Ann decided
to make an investment in reliving
those memories. They purchased
a lot in the historic coastal com-
munity.
"Eventually I would like to come
back here," he said. "I hope to build
a house."
The Jennings joined about 20
American Beach property owners
at county Fire Station 20 Saturday
to build a vision for the communi-
ty's pending historic and cultural
park. They met for a design "char-
rette" to discuss the beach's past
and compile ideas for developing
the future .oceanfront site that

law

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers have decided that the city's cur-,
rent tree ordinance needs to be
revised.
In a 5-0 vote Tuesday, the com-
mission directed the planning
department to draft an amended
ordinance.
"I think that the tree ordinance
is about as-cumbersome as it could
possibly be," Vice Mayor Beano
Roberts said. "I'd like to see staff
simplify this and come back with
something considered workable
and not as obstructive and restric-
tive to people."
The restrictions revolve around
tree replacement standards.
Problems include contradictions in
the ordinance regarding tree
removal authorization and if trees
within the building footprint must
be replaced.
City planner Catherine Hartley
said regular complaints concern
the cost to replace trees and a lack
of space for replacement trees. The
ordinance requires property own-
ers or developers to mitigate

Every year, more than 30,000
people in the United States kill
themselves. Many more try (esti-
mate: one each minute) and fail.
Most, 90 percent, have a diagnos-
able psychiatric disorder. And the
rates among all groups are spiral-
ing upward.
Statistics are small comfort
when someone you love attempts
suicide. But certain statistics
point toward those most at risk,
and can prod us to greater aware-
ness of that danger in people of
certain ages and circumstances.
For example: Suicide rates for
_ women peak between the ages of
45-64, and again after age 75. The
rates for men rise significantly
after age 65; elderly white men
have the highest rates of any
group. But it has tripled for
teenage males since 1950, and
doubled in females of that age
group.
Alcoholism is a factor in 30
percent of completed suicides
and depression, among the most
treatable of psychiatric disorders,

Architect John Zona III and Susan Grandin, left, director of the Trust for Public Land, led a design charrette Saturday at
American Beach. American Beach property owners, right, shared their ideas for developing the Evans' Ocean Rendezvous into
a historic and cultural park that reflects the beach's history.

"There are some parameters
we have to wi k \within to get the
funding," Susan Grandin said
before passing around copies of
an outline listing the project's fea-
tured elements.
Grandin's organization, the
Trust for Public Land, obtained
100 percent funding to purchase
the historic park on Nassau
County's behalf through a grant
from the Florida Communities
Trust. "When the grant funds
come in from the state, we will sell
it (the property) to the county,"
she said.

Island is protected. And anytime
there's boat slips, there's fuel and
danger for wildlife. If they do
develop this, I hope they do so with
a good plan and caution for the
environment."
"Anything that dumps in the
water on an outgoing tide is going
to go right to Bird Island," Hetchka
said. '"he birds there are very sen-
sitive to begin with."
Hetchka said bird experts had
warned her not to let her cus-
tomers come too close to Bird
Island on hand-paddled kayaks,
and she said that speedboats would
make an even bigger impression.
Much of the concern stems from.
the fact that several, of the bird
-specie's 'w*ho either ake theirr'
home or visit there are endan-
gered.
Bob Joseph, manager of Talbot
Islands State Parks, said the state
owns 85 percent of Big Talbot
Island and the rest is in private
hands. "The state acquires land
from willing sellers," Joseph said.

Grandin and architect John Zona
III for a "utopia exercise." The
exercise included compiling a wish
list for how to best reflect and
interpret American Beach.
"There's probably not a better
piece of property in this area than
this one that you're going to use
for the common good," said Zona,
who facilitated the brainstorming
process. The project needs a
theme and a central focus that can
serve to symbolize the communi-
ty, he told the group, suggesting
that the park "resurrect some of
the things that made it a fun place."
As a practical matter, the project
should also include ventures that
can generate revenue for its ongo-
ing operation and maintenance.


ed in the past, but nothing's moved
on it"
Hetchka said her business, a
Big Talbot Island State Park con-
cession, draws two types of cus-
tomers who both leave with the
same impression.
"Most of our customers enjoy
being out in nature on the kayaks.
A lot try it as a new sport, for the
health benefits. But when they
come back, they say that it's so
beautiful out there, so quiet. A mari-
na would bring a lot of motor
boats."
Jim Johnson, owner of Nassau
Bait & Tackle, next to the George
Crady Bridge State Fishing Pier,
said he wasn't sure the increase in
business he would receive from
the marina would be worth it.
'To see a marina going in over

whole, broad picture," Johnson
said. "I was really shocked. The
tranquillity in Big Talbot Island is
hard to beat. To see a marina
slapped in the middle of it is unbe-
lievable."
"The Nassau Sound is one of
the last frontiers," Johnson said.
"That's just such a classic piece of


Participants voiced strong
support for restoring Evans'
Rendezvous because of its historic
and symbolic importance to the
beach.
"It can be restored," Zona said.
"It's very structurally sound."
The Rendezvous would be the
ideal place for weddings and fam-
ily reunions, said William Evans,
son of the Rendezvous' founder
Willie Evans. Families regularly
celebrate their reunions at the
beach but have limited accommo-
dations for their gatherings.
"It would be excellent," he said.
"That's something we thought
about doing 20 or 30 years ago."
Most participants also agreed
on increasing public access and
recreating a family-oriented atmos-
phere that highlights the beach's


property there. The state has done
such a good job with it"
Leary said building there is
potentially dangerous "in context
with what happened last year in
Florida with the hurricanes and
the loss of property and in the con-
text of the erosion that has been
going on there."
Boats will also bring more
impact to marine life in the area,
Hetchka said.
"We see dolphins in the water
and a lot of bird life here. Yesterday,
coming across the bridge, we saw
a dozen white pelicans sitting in
the sand. That was something real-
ly special. But up and down the
Nassau River, you'll see manatee.
There's another endangered
species that will have to deal with
more motorized boats, gas and oil
pollution." i ... .. .
Mosling, who lives on Big
Talbot Island, said she moved the
eight-acre Beaks sanctuary there to
get the recuperating birds away
from humans so they can be rein-
troduced into the wild.
"This is an encroachment on
the space we're in, but that's the
way things are," Mosling said. "We

Shauna Ray Allen, national

should be able to learn about
American Beach.
"I think with the properties we
have available now, we have an
opportunity to capture that histo-
ry and provide a venue for the pub-
lic to experience that history," she
said.
The historic and cultural park
will not include a playground, fit-
ness trail, or basketball, tennis or
other sports-related courts.

TREE Continued from 1A
removed trees by finding space on
the lot for replacement trees.
"It's almost impossible to replace
them all on the same lot," Hartley
said, explaining that the current
tree ordinance requires that all trees
over five inches diameter breast
height be replaced, inch per inch.
"While the intent of the tree ordi-
nance is good, it is impractical," she
wrote in a Feb. 15 memo to City
Manager Bob Mearns.
A proposed compromise might
include a tree for tree rather than
inch for inch replacement, a tree
credit and an "in lieu of' payment
option, Hartley said.
Local nurseries price a three-
inch live oak tree at between $200-
300, making a tree for tree replace-
ment more cost effective than per
inch replacement. One 3-inch live
oak could replace one 30-inch tree
at a fraction of the per-inch replace-
ment cost The current tree ordi-
nance would require at least 10 3-
inch trees as replacement for one
30-inch tree.
For one example, a new
Montessori school faces a bill of
$65,000 just to replace the trees it
would displace in construction.
A tree credit would permit own-
ers to receive credit toward the
trees they must replace if the owner
preserves native trees greater than
10-inches in diameter.
The amended ordinance might
also include payment of a fee in lieu
of replacing trees as an option. The
fee would go into a fund dedicated
to planting trees in city rights of
way, in parks or other areas that
need landscaping, Hartley said.
Reviewing tree ordinances in
other cities will be helpful, she said,
pointing out that Tallahassee has a
tree program in which the city will
plant a dogwood tree on private
property as long as it's visible from
the street.
The current tree ordinance was
adopted at the end of 2001 before

topic of hearing
The city of Femandina
Beach has scheduled a
public meeting for the pur-
pose of discussing the C
Street dune walkover project
at 11 a.m. today in the city
commission chambers, 204
Ash St.
For information, contact
the city Parks and Rec-
reation Department at
277-7350.

Braga said, calling the adoption
process "horrendous." A review of
documents showed that the ordi-
nance went through multiple drafts.
"It must have gone to the commis-
sion at least 10 times," she said. "So
there is a lot of confusion in the
drafting process with the original
ordinance."
There are no exemptions in the
tree ordinance, developer Dan
McCranie said, pointing out that
exemptions from mitigation and
permitting fees once existed in the
ordinance. "Your existing tree ordi-
nance has no net loss," he said. "It's
just very onerous on anybody who's
trying to build anything here."
Commissioner Mike Lamb, who
requested the discussion, said the
pending creation of an islandwide
tree ordinance should resolve broad
issues. "I'm not proposing that we
do a major revamping of the exist-
ing tree ordinance," he said. But
the city should address issues such
as permitting and replacement
requirements for dead and diseased
trees.

Retiree wades into political fray


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader

Civic-minded citizen, wine
columnist, photographer, golfer,
fisherman, bird-watcher and avid
gardener of a rare hibiscus creat-
ed by his son-in-law, Robert
Weintraub arrived quietly on
Amelia Island with his wife,
Maryanne Contratti, two and a half
years ago. He has not found time
for many cherished pastime
moments since.
"We were living in Long Beach,
N.Y., when we decided it was time
for a change, and we found this
house and this place in spring 2002
while visiting all the islands from
the Carolinas on down and tak-
ing pictures of everything we saw
- and we decided.that Amelia
Island is best of them all,"
Weintraub says.
Weintraub has had careers in
journalism and public relations.
He was the editor of the Staunton,
Va., News-Leader 45 years ago, and
he repeated that chore at the
Yonkers (N. Y) Herald Statesman
before going into public relations.
- "After 15,years, I left the p.r.
firm and came here to find I had
not just turned the page, but I had
finished the book," Weintraub says.
So six weeks after first coming to
the island, he came back; stayed at
a bed and breakfast, "and kept
coming back to this house," he
says. "Then, two hours before my
plane to New York, I put a binder
on the house and left."
Settling in, and paying close
attention to what was going on in
the area, Weintraub says he

encountered three simultaneous
happenings that hooked him into
paying attention to what govern-
ment agencies were doing.
First, he read about changes to
the Egans Creek Greenway with-
out public involvement. In the
same issue of his local paper, he
read about what the county com-
mission had done to a proposed
A1A overlay, with landscaping and
trees stripped out of the plan. The
final straw for Weintraub were the
cost overruns for a county boat
ramp on the island.
"I concluded that the people
running our government were not
very bright," he says, "so I started


speaking to people, met Phil
Scanlan (head of the Amelia Island
Association of homeowners), and
-he said''there were no organiza-
tions foi the off-islanders, who have
a different agenda," Weintraub
says.
"At first I thought we needed an
independent party, not to be bur-
dened with political labels, but
decided to do a homeowners' asso-
ciation instead and try to influence
the decisions of the county com-
missioners. So I set an organiza-
tional meeting for Dec. 1, 2003,
and just two years later, we have 11
communities that are either mem-
bers or monitors of what we're


doing," Weintraub says.
The head of the East Nassau
Homeowners' Association said the
group has nine or 10 meetings per
year, and he has received good
support from people within the
organization.
But, he laments, when it comes
to doing something, "only a few
are there. It takes a lot of people to
get elected officials to change," he
says, "and I am very much involved
in that."
Weintraub researches issues
and writes editorial viewpoints for

the financial crisis at the county
landfill, was published

Wednesday).
Weintraub is also vice president
of the Marsh Lakes Community
Association, and his wife,
Maryanne, has her own activities:
she is a board member and secre-
tary of the Amelia Island
Newcomers Club, and she is com-
munications chair of Centred
Women.
So if the Weintraubs' phone
rings off the hook when you call to
volunteer, you already know that to
get anything done the old adage
suggests you "ask a busy man."
Apparently, some have caught on.


From public relations career to wine column


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader

RobertWeintraub became inter-
ested in wine about 12 years ago,
and as he got more and more seri-
ous about it he researched various
wines and in his travels, tasted
different wines. And then he sought
to write a wine column.
"I saw a problem with wine
columns," he says. "Some deal with
specific wines that no one can find.
So I focused on wines that can be
found on the island or in
Jacksonville. But ABC Liquors in

But the most verifiable results of
one public relations campaign he
handled occurred in his own home.
His firm had been hired by Nabisco
to publicize some of its cookies,
and he was tasked with coming up
with information that newspapers
would print.
"It was Oreo cookies that I was
working with," Weintraub says,
"and my four kids came in one
Sunday afternoon and they were
eating the cookies. I noticed that
everyone ate them differently -
and I found that 62 percent of peo-

"I just tried to keep from
killing everyone," said truck
driver Mike Wilkins, 40, of
Lyons, Ga. He said he was
approaching the intersection
when the light turned red and a
blue Buick in front of him came
to an abrupt stop.
"The light changed and he
stopped in front of me," Wilkins
said. "It turned red suddenly. I
blew the big horn."
Wilkins said he tried to veer
around the Buick but hit it, spin-
ning it around to where it came
to rest in the AMA median.
Wilkins said he then tried to
compensate by turning his truck
back to the left, but lost control
and tipped over, dumping his
logs into the intersection, across
westbound AlA and onto an
. westbound white Ford waiting to
turn left into a shopping center
south of AlA.
The falling logs shattered the
Ford's windshield, blew out its
tires and pushed it backwards.
Diesel fuel from the truck
spilled into the intersection of
A1A and Barnwell Road, prompt-
ing the evacuation of the nearby
Rose-Lennie Developmental
Learning Center.
"We heard this loud, loud
noise. It sounded like something
exploding," said Denise
Jefferson, a teacher at the center.
"It was definitely a traumatic
experience," she said. It was dur-
ing nap time, so they had to
wake the children, get their
shoes on and rush them out of
the building and down Barnwell
Road to the safety of the direc-
tor's home, all while notifying
parents of the disaster, said
Jefferson.
She said she could see
bystanders working to free the
occupants of the Ford.
"It is amazing to see this,"
said Jefferson, "the way traffic is
going through the parking lo'" of
Lowe's.
"I've been in an accident. I've
seen a lot of accidents at A1A
and Barnwell, but never any-
thing like this. This is the first
time we've had to evacuate our
children."
Motorist Hal Whitely, who
was caught in the backed up traf-
fic and watched as vehicles
snaked through Lowe's, said it
just highlighted the need for a
secondary artery, preferably an
expressway without traffic
lights.
"If this happened during a
storm, nobody would get off the
island'.he said& .'-. -
The westbound lane of A1A
was backed ti- past Sadler Road,

Nassau black bear habitat preserved


Gov. Jeb Bush and the Florida
Cabinet voted Wednesday to pre-
serve 2,982 acres of black bear habi-
tat in West Nassau and Duval coun-
ties.
Purchased through Florida
Forever as part of the Northeast
Florida Timberlands and Watershed
Reserve conservation project, the
acquisition is a partnership between
the state Department of
Environmental Protection and St
Johns River Water Management

102,000 square feet. He added that
the store's garden centers vary in
size, but are around 30,000 square
feet, also close to the plans.
But he noted he could find no
record of planned construction for
the company in Yulee.
Six of the development's out-
parcel lots facing A1A are shown
with building footprints. One
appears to be a 15,000-square-foot
drug store, two seem to be fast-
food restaurants, two others banks
and one a convenience store with a
roof shelter over its gasoline
pumps.
The two anchor stores are sep-
arated by 13 acres of wetlands,
which their parking lots border on
the east and west. A planned road,
Dudley Drive, runs along the south-
ern border of the wetlands.

acres of the conservation area are
now in public ownership, safe-
guarding rare wildlife including the
bald eagle, red-cockaded wood-

Once complete, the project will
connect the Jennings State Forest,
Cecil Field Conservation Corridor,
Cary State Forest and the
Timucuan Ecological and Historic
Preserve just north of Jacksonville.
The conservation corridor also

Birkeland said that Kimco is
waiting for the final U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers approval, and
has been in talks with the Florida
Department of Transportation for
a list of items.
One item on the list includes a
traffic signal at the shopping cen-
ter's westernmost entrance from
A1A, across the highway from the
Yulee office of the Florida
Department of Motor Vehicles and
the county's Animal Control office.
The land has had a guarantee of
traffic concurrency since 2000.
There are four entrances into the
shopping center from westbound
A1A and two are accessible froth
the highway's eastbound lanes.
One entrance and exit point is
noted as coming from Chester

use the property for commercial

planner Danielle Glouner. "This
project will have to go through a
platting process. It's (zoned) 'indus-

developer's agreement and that
requires them to go through the

The Growth Management

cation of site wetlands and adjacent

VIEWPOINT/DAVID THUNDERSHIELD QUEEN/ST. AUGUSTINE


'Beach Lady' gives hope in the struggle against progress'


T he showing of Erica McCarthy's moving
documentary 'The Beach Lady," in con-
junction with an official celebration of
MaVynne Betsch's 70th birthday at The
Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island on Jan. 31, was exciting
- personal, emotional and ultimately triumphant.
Erica hit-the mark with her production, which will
be expanded.
There is also a lesson in democracy to be
learned from watching this engaging documentary
that chronicles MaVynee Betsch's courageous
struggle against seemingly overwhelming odds -
a lack of funds, the land-hungry Amelia Island
Plantation, stomach cancer and even some detrac-
tors from within her own African-American commu-
nity to ultimately triumph against all odds.
That lesson is that activist citizens such as
MaVynee, with help from other supportive citizens
(though in MaVynee's case local supporting help
was oftentimes almost non-existent), can pressure
elected officials and large private landowners to
sometimes do the right thing if they are persistent
and keep their "eye on the prize."
It must be remembered that some of the players
had to be pushed, prodded and cajoled to get there.
It's acknowledged and appreciated that the
Plantation finally did the right thing in the end -
as least as far as the dune is concerned.
We won't talk about the other 70-plus acres that
was "grasped away" from the community forever to
construct a near lily-white senior living center and a
generic, potentially toxic golf course that most in
the American Beach community strongly opposed.
In my mind I can still see the former massive
maritime oaks, interspersed with rare "bayheads,"
seasonal wetlands with a floor of lavish bright-
green ferns, before the developers' bulldozers and


loud, tree-shredding machines moved in and
wrought their merciless destruction to make way
for "Osprey Village."
Can anyone say for sure that the Plantation
wouldn't still like to expand further and get their
monied claws on what remains of American Beach?
I still see them, as do many others, more as
potential profit-seeking encroachers than as the
"good neighbors" they like to portray and self-pro-
mote. It is hoped that the Plantation's "gift" was
something more than just a tax write-off on land
that could have become politically embarrassing to
use as originally planned.
In the end the magnificent and sacred dune,
Nana, was saved and will be protected permanently
by the National Park Service as part of the
Timucuan Ecological and Historical Preserve, a
haven for African-Americans residents and other
respectful guests who come to enjoy her beauty or
be moved by her spiritual powers.
American Beach may get the revival it's looking
for if property values (and taxes) don't soar, forcing
out moderate income owners or those on fixed
incomes. Or if American Beach property owners,
strapped for cash, don't sell out to developers or
wealthy white (or black) newcomers who've forgot-
ten or never known what makes for a real commu-
nity.
This troubling modern trend is one of the main
themes in award-winning journalist Russ Rymer's
American Beach A Saga of Race, Wealth and.
Memory, published in 1998.
Wealthy, self-centered blacks who shun their
culture's former unity, chasing the model frequent-
ly offered by the dominant culture, could destroy
the heritage and natural beauty of American Beach
just as surely as any encroaching developer chas-

ing commercial profits. Is it already too late as
feared by Ms. Betsch?
It is imperative that American Beach's unique
beauty, charm and African-American cultural per-
spective be nurtured and guarded with vigilance.
Thanks largely to the efforts of Ms. Betsch,
American Beach remains a "one of a kind" on an -
island that has become increasingly inundated with
exclusive private enclaves isolated behind gated
entrances. These look-alike developments
(MaVynee refers to them as HUD housing for the
rich), often with quaint natural-sounding names,"
displaced real culture and community and true,


unspoiled natural beauty that stretched back to the
Timucuan-Indian days.
The example offered by MaVynee Betsch and
chronicled so well in "The Beach Lady," gives
hope and direction to those who struggle to pre-
serve both culture and rapidly-vanishing natural
beauty against the cancerous tide of mundane
"progress."

VIEWPOINT/JOHN M. EVERETT/AMEUA ISLAND


Founding fathers had foresight to accommodate religion(s)


In "We are one nation (still) under God," (Jan.
21) Mike Boyle made reference to articles in
the early constitution of Delaware (1776) and
Tennessee, both of which required a religious
oath of all elected officials, Delaware going so far as
to require a belief in the Trinity.
There are other interesting aspects to these ref-
erences. Requirements of religious oaths in the
colonies were common prior to the Revolutionary
War and the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. The
charters establishing the colonies were granted by
the King of England, and the Church of England
exerted considerable influence over the King. But
from the very beginning of the founding of the
colonies, and despite the Church of England's
attempt to maintain its dominance and influence,
there were serious conflicts btlp&' 'at
denomination s, and betweeFi dnonuitinations and,. -," A
secularists. Yes, there were secularists, even in
those days.
Many colonists came to America to escape the
persecutions of the Church of England, but often
found themselves embroiled in even more threaten-
ing circumstances.
Patricia Bonomi, professor emeritus of New York
University, has pointed out that the Puritans of
Massachusetts Bay hanged four Quakers in their
determination to exclude alien elements from their
spiritual community.
Virginians expelled from their Anglican province
every Puritan they could lay hands on. Peter
Stuyvesant cleansed his colony of Lutherans and
Quakers, and tried to do the same to Jews.
In what was to become known as the Negro Plot
of 1741, New York City seethed with rumors that

'It behooves every man who values
liberty of conscience for himself to
resist invasions of it in the case of
others: or their case may. by change
of circumstances, become his own.'
THOMAS JEFFERSON


Catholics were conspiring with slaves to instigate a
rebellion. The resulting investigation resulted in the
eus A'f 1SiMslNd'-our whites (more than.
Shall again the number executed a- witches at
Salem).
Delaware, first settled by Scandinavian
Lutherans and Dutch Reformed, with later infusions
of English Quakers and Welsh Baptist, had perhaps
the most diverse beginnings of any middle colony.
Yet over the 18th century Delaware became increas-
ingly British, with the Church of England showing
the most striking gains before the Revolution. The
Delaware Charter of 1701 provided, "... no Person
or Persons, inhabiting in this Province or Territory,
who shall confess and acknowledge Our almighty
God, the Creator, Upholder and Ruler of the world:
and professes him or themselves obliged to live qui-
etly under Civil Government, shall be in any Case
molested or prejudiced, in his or their Person or
Estate, because of his or their conscientious
Persuasion or Practice, nor be compelled to fre-

quent or maintain any religious Worship, Place or
Ministry, contrary to his of their Mind, or to suffer
any other Act or Thing, contrary to their religious
Persuasion."
"And that all Persons who also profess to believe
in Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World, shall be
capable (notwithstanding their other Persuasions
and Practices in Point of Conscience or Religion) to
serve this Government in any Capacity, both legisla-
tive and executively, he or they solemnly promising,
when lawfully required, Allegiance to the King as
Sovereign.. ." (The King referred to here being the
King of England).
It is fairly clear that these were defensive provi-
sions, guaranteeing that those,who shared the
beliefs of the Church ofEnglado alsohold
office.

charters of the colonies carried over into their first
state constitutions. So it was with the Delaware and
Tennessee Constitutions that Boyle referred to. And
it is a historical fact that the Delaware Constitution
of 1776, which was framed by a convention at New
Castle on Aug. 27, 1776, on the recommendation of
the Continental Congress that the people of the
colonies should form independent state govern-
ments, was never submitted to the people of
Delaware for a vote, but was simply proclaimed
Sept. 21, 1776.
And interestingly, in what may be described as
an early infusion of the separation of church and
state doctrine, these same first state constitutions
prohibited clergymen from holding public office.
Article 29 of the 1776 Delaware Constitution states,
"There shall be no establishment of any one reli-

gious sect in this state in preference to another; and
no clergyman or preacher of the gospel, of any
denomination, shall be capable of holding any civil
office in this state, or of being a member of either of
the branches of the legislature, while they continue
in the exercise of the pastoral function."
Article IX, section 1 of the Tennessee
Constitution states "Whereas ministers of the
Gospel are by their profession, dedicated to God
and the care of souls, and ought not to be diverted
from the great duties of their functions; therefore,
no minister of the Gospel, or priest of any denomi-
nation whatever, shall be eligible to a seat in either
House of the Legislature."
Contemporaneous with, or shortly after, the rati-
fication, .pr,)Q .C ion, which contained no
such ohs.or tions,, statess amended their
constitutipqg n',n .e afocementiqnfear.tt
cles. Considering the demographics at the time -
just over three million people, of which almost one
million were slaves it is remarkable that the
founding fathers had the foresight to accommodate
the many religious persuasions that now exist in a
population of almost 300 million. Thomas Jefferson
summed it up pretty well when he observed "It
behooves every man who values liberty of con-
science for himself, to resist invasions of it in the
case of others; or their case may, by change of cir-
cumstances, become his own."
Today, countless variations of Protestant faiths
with millions of members, millions of Catholics,
Mormons, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and you name it
are all free to worship here as they see fit, or not to
worship at all. Such is the greatness of our
Constitution.

Smile at



your own


risk ,.
If you've just won an all-expenses-paid trip to
Bora Bora, let me give you a tip: Get all of those
smiles out of your system before you have your
passport photo made.
"From now on," one website warns, "the U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration
Service does not want to see
r any smiles on official docu-
What Uncle Sam is look-
ing for on your face is a "neu-
tral expression,".whatever
that means. A smile is not
neutral, according to the gov-
ernment It indicates you
', .. h have something on your
Phil mind, something pleasura-
'Phin ble, and the government
flualylS frowns on such nonsense.
^ b--u f, AcWbW' d0acha 'a .Angl".' '""
FROM rH Aggeler, a representative of
the Bureau of Consular
HOME Affairs, the reason the gov-
OFFICE ernment shuns smiles is
because they sometimes dis-
tort other facial features. Your eyes might squint
when you smile. Your cheek muscles might con-
tort. One of your chins might disappear.
And if you have one of those machine-read-
able passports with bar codes and face-recogni-
tion capabilities, the machine might not know
you from Adam's off ox.
If you insist, however, the regulations will
allow a slight, slight smile. The instructions say,
"A smile with closed jaw is allowed but is not pre-
ferred."
But it's better to forget the smile, no matter
how happy you are. What a smile does, really,
besides confusing a perfectly good machine, is
make the people in U.S. customs suspect you're
hiding something. They think you're the type
who would sneak in one of those forbidden fruit
plants, or you have an undeclared diamond ring
pinned inside your Jockey shorts.
So they pull you aside for questioning and a
good patting-down.
"Excuse me, sir," the customs officer says,
"but you have this strange, suspicious smile on
your passport, and I need to find out why. Did you
leave your luggage unattended at any time, or
have you loaned out your Jockey shorts to a
stranger?"
You squirm, even though you're as blameless
as a baby.
Your face turns red. You rue the moment you
yielded to temptation and smiled at the cute, little
passport photographer.
The customs officer continues: "And your
right ear is showing in the picture. Don't you
know that new photo regulations require a full
frontal view of the subject's head and shoulders?
Ears are out, sir. And so are smiles."
You begin to stammer and sound stupid as the
custom officer pokes around in your hair.
"Are-you wearing a hairpiece, sir?" he asks.
"The regulations say that a false hairpiece and
other cosmetic devices are acceptable if they do
not disguise the natural appearance of the bearer
and are worn habitually. Have you made it a habit
of wearing a hairpiece, sir? Or is this something
you just took up?"
Finally, you kneel down on the cold pavement
and beg the officer to let you go. "All right," he
says gruffly, "but next time, just stay in Bora
Bora."
You dress quickly, grab your suitcase and run.
And you yell over your shoulder, "I promise. I'll
never smile again."

Don't leave it for


S scenario Number One: You're sitting comfort-
ably at home watching television when your
doorbell rings. When you open your door you
find two of your neighbors who tell you they
have made a discovery that may be of interest to
you. They have just learned that the house down the
street from yours has been sold to the American
Nazi Party which intends to use it as a "time-share"
for its members from around the country. Your
neighbors are a tad bit concerned that such activity
might be detrimental to property values, and they
ask you to attend a homeowners meeting that
evening to discuss possible plans of action to
address the issue. You assure them of your whole-
hearted support, and you pledge to join them at the
meeting. You then close the door and call to your
wife, "Marge, don't forget we're going to the movie
this evening. Let's not .be late." And you then go
back to watching "Wheel of Fortune." After all, it's
not happening on your block.
Scenario Number Two: You're sitting comfort-
ably at home watching television, when there is sud-
denly a frantic knock at your door. When you
answer it you find a neighbor from across the street
who excitedly tells you that the house next to yours
is on fire, and that you need to take some action in
order to protect your own home and family; You
calmly step out on your porch and see that the
house next door is indeed on fire, but that it is only
burning on the far side of the house, and the wind
appears to be blowing away from your own home.
Not only that, but you observe your other neighbors
grabbing their garden hoses while they help the

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Honor the commitment
Kevin Turner's article ("American Beach commu-
nity center plan needs cash," Feb. 11) brings attention
to the lack of commitment as demonstrated by the new
County Administrator Mike Mahaney. Such as telling
the board that the parcel intended for the project could
be sold to give the county's budget a needed transfu-
sion. What about selling other county land? His "That.
existing site that we were going to build a communi-
ty center on is very valuable" suggests that American
Beach residents and their neighbors have no "value,"
Or maybe I misunderstood the implication.
We look forward to leadership by Commissioner
Ansley Acree and her colleagues in addressing this
important issue. Phil Scanlan has pointed out-the basic
math. Now let's see what our leaders will do to support
their previously announced pledge.

Caring selfless people
On Thursday, Feb. 3 (ironically my 63rd birthday)
I was awakened at 1:19 a.m. when my sleep apnea
machine,'Aier i'6 years of faithful, uninterrupted serv-
ice except when there was a power outage, suddenly
died. As a sleep apnea patient I have come to realize
that every breath God gives us is a blessing!
Without my machine pumping air under pressure
to keep my airway open, I cannot sleep at all (a kind
of slow oxygen deprivation torture setting in that
probably accounts for why I became so peculiar in
my old age).
What at first appeared to be an instant crisis
for me, after 16 years, was in reality a special birthday
gift from God. For I discovered that I am surrounded
by compassionate, caring people here on beautiful
Amelia Island, only too willing to step in and help
others.
The three men in the emergency room at our hos-
pital, never having been faced with this particular kind
of emergency before, nevertheless put their heads
together and referred me to Lifeline Home Care
Services, Inc., on 14th Street. Those wonderful young
ladies immediately comprehended my predicament
(I simply could not face another night without relief).
They went to work to see what they could accomplish
for me, cutting through bureaucratic red tape with
amazing efficiency. The end result. before the day
was out I was fixed up with the loan of a machine. If I
ever had to have people in my foxhole, I would certainly
choose them!
I My doctor and his staff were also wonderful in
expediting the necessary authorizations.;
I got a terrific night's sleep not only because I had
a new machine, but also because I realized how blessed
Iam.
We need to celebrate the positives on our island, and
one of them is caring, selfless people like these who
bless us every day.

Thank you to everyone who turned my worst birth-
day into my best! God knows who you are. He put you'
here.
J. Charles Cripps

Sin no more
I have been reading some of the articles and opin-
ions about the Adam & Eve store. I want to say thank
you to those who are opposed to the store being opened
and operating in our community.
I was glad to see Nassau County Commissioners
directing the county attorney to write a law restricting
businesses whose main focus is sex.
Christians have standards or morals based from
the word of God. Man's standards and morals will
change but God is "the same yesterday and today and
forever." His word says, "For I am the Lord, I change
not." I believe we, as Christians, should be in agreement
with God and His word "be ye Holy; for I am Holy." So
Christians should voice their desire and be in agree-
ment with promoting God's way. If Christians are silent
it is as if we are in agreement with what comes into our
community. I don't believe it is being judgmental by voic-
ing the standard in God's word. Jesus wasn't judging
the lady caught in adultery, but he did tell her "sin no
more." He did not condone the sin.
As Christians we should be striving to be more like


Christ everyday. As the word of God says "Brethren,
I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one
thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and
reaching forth unto those things which are before, I
press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling
of God in Christ Jesus".
Christians need to have a personal intimate eternal
relationship with God the Father, the Son and the Holy
Ghost We shouldn't be falling in and out of our rela-
tionship with God because of what people, even
Christians, say or do. I don't base my relationship with
God on what other Christians say or do. My relation-
ship with God is based on His word.
Matt 7:16 "so every good tree doth yield good fruits.
but the bad tree doth yield evil fruits. This is how we knouw
who is from Christ".
"A good tree is not able to yield evil fruits, nora bad
tree to yield good fruits. Every tree not yielding good
fruit is cut down and is cast to fire: therefore from their
fruits ye shall know them".
Romans 3:4 'Godforbit yea, let God be true, but every
man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justi-
fied in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art
judged'.
Again I would like to thank all those who voice
their opinion that was in agreement with God, and His
word.

Better be careful what you wish for


$427,000,000,000.00
That's four hundred and twenty seven billion dol-
lars and it's the projected budget deficit of the
United States of America for fiscal year 2006.
Staggering isn't it?
I mean, that's nine zeros before the pennies and
after the whole numbers!
This is the deficit that will accompany the Bush'
Administration's proposed budget of $2.57 trillion
dollars ($2,570,000,000,000.00).
And guess what folks, that doesn't account for
-the surplus budget the administration will be pro-
posing to continue funding the war in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
Oh, but yeehaw!, the president plans to reduce
spending to cut the deficit in half in five years -
hmm, sounds oh so rosy doesn't it? "
It ain't gonna happen.
It ain't gonna happen because, even though
many conservatives expect and demand cuts, no
one is going to be happy,, even the conservatives
themselves.
The right wing has no problem with cuts in serv-
ices or agencies that are less than popular with
them, like the EPA or Amtrak or Medicaid, but it's a
,different story when it comes to their own "sacred
cows." In fact; to cut the fat in their sacred cows -
say, the military that's not only taboo, it's down-
right traitorous!
As I have said many times before, this is where
the rubber really hits road for conservatives. If you
talk the talk, you gotta walk the walk. As an exam-
ple, the Bush administration is proposing to elimi-


nate the aircraft carrier John E
Kennedy from the fleet This
announcement has been greet-
ed with fervent opposition; after
Tall, it will have a significant
impact on the regional econo-
my. Nonetheless, without an
increase in revenues, the only
solution is to cut.
It's ironic that in conserva-
tive Northeast Florida, where
Coleman "W" won handily, their own
torch-bearer is now living up to
Langshaw his promise (or attempting to),
-- .. and the very same constituents
are screaming their opposition.
OPINIONS -It seems really hypocritical.
FROM THE Suddenly when the government
GOLDFISH tries to cut spending in an area
that hits people in their own
wallets, they curiously become "liberal" -by their
own conservative definition.
I mean isn't that how conservatives define liber-
als? Tax and spenders, living off the government
dole? (Suddenly that doesn't sound very nice does
it? In fact it's insulting and maddening). Just
because someone sees the benefit of tax dollars
being spent, doesn't necessarily mean they are
some irresponsible leech on. society, does it?
Interesting when the shoe is on the other foot,
isn't it?
Back to the JFK. Don't get me wrong, I would
like to see the JFK stay, and I am concerned about


the impact its loss will have on the local economy,
but I am also a taxpayer who feels the need to light-
en the burden on my checkbook. The question is,
how do we make it work?
The solution should lie with the president and
Congress, but unfortunately the Republicans have
'let us down, and in a big way. Bush has done so
many things wrong, and is still going about things
so wrong, that we will not get out of this mess until
he leaves office in 2008, when hopefully, his succes-
sor will have a more realistic view of the Big Picture.
The war in Iraq is costing us dearly in both eco-
nomic and human terms. Tax cuts have reduced
revenues but have not stimulated growth to offset
the growing national debt The budget cuts to pay
for the discrepancy between revenues and expenses
are targeted at critical components of our nation,
threatening the future health and safety of our
nation.
Bush's cavalier approach once again is hurting
America. Sure, cutting fat is a good idea, and I ,
applaud this aspect of conservatism; but it is over-
shadowed by the fact that his expensive gamble in
Iraq, coupled simultaneously with an irresponsibly
timed tax cut, is leading us into an increasingly dan-
gerous quagmire. Now, even some people who voted
for "W" are realizing that as the old adage goes, "Be
careful what you ask for, it might just come true,"
In Northeast Florida, it may be the JFK getting
the axe, but if you voted for him, don't get mad it's
what George W. Bush promised, and now he's mak-
ing good on it

Daydreaming about an organized office


Clean Desk Club
Another club I will never belong to.
What is the old joke do I really want to
be a member of a club that would take
me? My home office is, well, let's say it
has a lot of character. I daydream about an
immaculate, organized office.
The best thing about my office is that it
looks west over a tidal marsh. I have con-
stant entertainment as the tide ebbs and
flows and birds fly in and out of their own
private airport and fast food stop. At the
end of the day, I am guaranteed one of
many variations of sunset
After a long search, I fund a comfort-
able chair one that rocks and twirls and
supports my temperamental back. My
investment in a flat screen monitor has'
really helped my eyes. My laptop screen
proved to be just too challenging and my
eyes are much happier now.,
Bookshelves never enough, right?
The bookshelves I had built in across one


MIwall are chock full
of books, pictures
and things I can not
part with.
I have always
loved desk stuff -
new pencils and
pens, notebooks,
and organizers.
Once inside an
office supply store,
I hyper-ventilate.
DickieAnderson Once home and out

FROM THE sort of neat order?
PORCH No, but I can
always (almost
always) find what I need.
I recently read an article about feng
shui (pronounced "fung schway"). Feng
shui is an Ancient Chinese technique for
arrangement that is designed to support
and encourage harmony and ease. So I


wondered if I could bring harmony to my
very cluttered but cozy office.
How does your home office hold up to
the feng shui police?
1. Never sit with your back to the door.
This is rule No. 1 in office feng shui. If
you face the door and have a solid wall
behind your back, you feel supported pro-
tected and in a position of power.
2. Create a clean environment. Clutter
and dust are bad. Your desk should be
clear and materials in a place. A neat envi-
ronment should increase your efficiency.
3. Add a small plant, aquarium or foun-
tain in the southeast corner of your office.
The southeast is the corner of "creation"
and writing in feng shui. Add a bubbling
tabletop fountain or plant in the southeast
corner of your office.
4. Use a crystal for concentration. A
quartz crystal in the northeast corner of
your desk may help your concentration
and focus. The northeast is the direction
of study and wisdom.


Church welcomes new pastor


F ernandina Beach and the Northeast
Florida Baptist Association of 29 churches
welcomes the Rev. Randy Elrod and wife
Helen to our area from Winter Haven. He
is the new pastor of North 14th Street Baptist
Church. The church invited others to celebrate
with them as they welcomed the Elrods into the
church family on Feb. 6. Following the 11 a.m.
worship hour, a covered dish luncheon was
served in the fellowship hall and everyone had the
opportunity to meet the Elrod family and welcome
them into our Northeast Florida Baptist
Association and to North 14th Street Baptist
Church.
Live Oak and North Hilliard Baptist are having
a joint revival March 5-9. There will be a banquet
on March 5 at Live Oak Baptist On March 6, the
guest preacher will preach at North Hilliard
Baptist that morning. The remainder of revival
will be at live Oak. The Rev. Steve Wolgamatt and
The Rev. Neal Thompson areipastors of those
churches. I .I
The month 6f February is about celebrating -
two of our great presidents, George Washington
and Abraham Lincoln. These were not the only
two great men of our country. This country has
had many great people, but we need to remember
the greatest person of all is Jesus Christ our Lord.
He is the way the truth and the life and without
him we would be nothing. (John 14:6).
February is also a month for Valentine's Day.
We should not send out gifts and love only on this
day. We should do it always to everyone all over
the world. "But as touching brotherly love ye need
not that I write unto: for ye yourselves are taught
of God to love one another." 1 Thes. 4:9.
We have many things coming up in and around
our church. The revival with Bro. Steve
Wolgamott is winding down. The preacher will be
Mark Knite from South Carolina. The music will
be "Strike Force" led by Don Odom. We are plan-
ning Cottage Prayer Meetings before the revival.
We feel like these are necessary to do before a
revival is started. (Revival is March 5-9)
Our kids are really starting to grow. The chil-
dren's leaders want out children to go out visiting
once a month. This is the best way to get children
started into witnessing. They are our next genera-
tion and our best outreach. Everyone should take
the example of our children. You would be sur-
prised what they can do. "Therefore whatsoever
ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the
Slight and that which ye have spoken in the ear in
closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops."
Luke 12:3.
,Our children will be attending the rally in
Jacksonville on Feb. 26. There will be many per-
formances by Christian singing groups. This will
be an event that will bring them closer to the
Lord. A youth rally is a wonderful thing for chil-
dren, as well as adults.

Jes rentrns Are you ready? "But of that day and
'hour knoweth no man, hohot the angels of heav- '*
en, but my Father only." Matthew 24:25.
The Rev. Frank Camarotti has a great report of
their revival at Blackrock Baptist Church where
he has been their dedicated pastor for 20 years.
He writes, "As I write this, we are in the middle of
another awesome revival! The theme for the week
is giving thanks to God for all His blessings. Our
Scripture is Psalms 136:1-8. (1) 0 give thanks unto
the Lord, for he is good; for his mercy endureth
forever. (2) Ogive thanks unto the God of gods;
for his mercy endureth forever. (3) 0 give thanks
to the Lord of lords; for his mercy endureth forev-
er. (4) To him who alone doeth great wonders; for
his mercy endureth forever. ,(5) To him that by
wisdom made the heavens; for his mercy
endureth forever. (6) To him that stretched out
the earth above the waters; for his mercy
endureth forever. (7) To him that made great
lights; for his mercy endureth forever. (8) The sun
to rule by days; for his mercy endureth forever.
"Each night has been better than the night
before as we have testified to all that God is to us
and all that he has done for us. He has honored
our hearts with His glory. Tuesday night several
gave their lives to Jesus Christ as their Lord and
Savior. Many others through the week have
rededicated their lives. Each night the alters have
been full of people crying out to their Lord. Rick
Coram has truly blest us with spirit-filled ser- .
mons. Michael Combs came all the way from
North Carolina to share the Gospel in song with
us. This is Brother Rick's 14th year and Brother
Michael's 13th year with us:We really do enjoy
their ministry and fellowship. But you know, we
can experience the spirit of revival each and every
day if we just come seeking our Lord with the
right spirit and with all our hearts. God is good all,
HILDA Continued on 11A


5. Boost the south wall of your office
for fame and recognition. Display things
you have done that have received recogni-
tion. Remind yourself that you are good.
Be sure you have a spotlight on that wall.
6. Keep open space on and around your
desk. Good feng shui is like creativity: It
must be flowing. Energy and creativity
cannot flow if your desktop is overly
crowded. Keep an open space at the front
of your desk so good energy can accumu-
late.

If you've never though about it, let me confirm
the reality of Christian commitment to you today. To
live the way of Jesus Christ is a sacrifice. It is a sac-
rifice that this world can never understand! That is
why it takes a faith that is real!
Today, let's acknowledge the cost of our disciple-

strength and courage to make the kind of commit-
ments he desires.
"The man who loves his life will lose it, while the
man who hates his life in this world will keep it for

HOMES


Take control at your house closing


CHARLES J. KOVALESKI *
For the News-Leader
You've finally.found the perfect house,
and have struck a deal with its current
owners. So, after months of scouring the
real estate section of the local paper,
dedicating Sundays to open houses, checking
daily mortgage interest rates and shopping
around for lenders, it all comes down to this:
Closing Day.
It's an exciting time when the process feels all
but done; however, issues can still arise at closing
that can throw a kink into the whole deal.
Misunderstandings about occupancy dates, the
absence of a current certificate of occupancy, even
disagreements about whether or not the curtains
are staying can cause unnecessary delay at clos-
ing.
Most disputes at closing can be avoided by
hammering out a well-crafted contract before-
hand; in fact, the more detailed your contract,
the better chances are for smooth sailing
at closing.
If your real estate attorney didn't draw up the
contract, it's a good idea to have him review
it well before closing. Of course, having your
attorney review the contract before you sign it is
the best way-to ensure your best interests are pro-
tected.
Taking control at closing is really about being
as prepared as possible before the big day. It's
also about being relaxed and having enough time
to carefully read all the documents on the table,
ask the necessary questions and feel confident in
your decisions.
Before you close, your lender will require you
to secure a lender's title insurance policy to pro-
tect the lender against any title problems. To pro-
tect your interests, you'll need to secure an
owner's title insurance policy, as well. This
secures your legal claim to the property, and pro-
tects you against title "defects" legal rights to a
property claimed by somebody else.
Other paperwork to double check before clos-
ing includes:
Certificate of occupancy. Prior to closing,
check with the local building department to make
sure that what's on file matches what they've seen
at the house, thus avoiding potential problems
later. A new certificate of occupancy is required
after any major renovations, such as adding new


bedrooms, or bathrooms.
Property liens. A seller may have refinanced
or taken an equity loan and paid it off, but never
gotten a mortgage satisfaction, which would show
up as a lien. In addition, make sure all open equity
credit lines on your new home have been can-
celed before closing.
Being prepared for the amount of documents
and their scope will also make the closing go
much more smoothly than if you are unsure about
what you are signing. Some of the documents
you'll be required to read, 'understand and sign at
closing include:
Payment letter. This paper will dictate your
regular payments for the life of the loan, and
includes a breakdown of your monthly payment
into principal, interest, taxes, insurance and any
other monthly escrows. Be sure you understand
and agree with all the numbers set forth in this
document.
Truth in lending statement. Another impor-
tant place to double check numbers. Here you'll
find an itemized list of numbers, including the
interest rate of your loan, its annual percentage
,rate, how much you are financing and the total
cost of the loan over its life, as well as a breakout
of the amount financed and related costs such as
points.
Mortgage. Among other things, this docu-
ment secures a lien on the house you are buying
to secure the loan. This means the bank can fore-
close if you default on the note and take the
house from you.
Note. When you sign the note, you are giv-
ing your personal guarantee that you will pay back
all the money you are borrowing.
Most importantly, expect the unexpected when
you arrive at the closing table. You can always
expect a few flaws in the process, but most prob-
lems can be resolved to everyone's satisfaction.
Also, keep in mind that work on the closing does-
n't end once the buyers receive the deed to their
property, and it might take several months to tie
up all of the loose ends.

Scientific names important


in bid to classify nature

SWhy do we have to use sci-
.entific names when corn-
mon names are so much easier? I
can't pronounce or spell the
names. MB ",6


A *You have raised an interest-
.ing question and one I am
sure many others have scratched
their heads about Very few of us
can spell or pronounce scientific
names so

However,
S the principle
behind using

names is
important.
Usingcom-
mon names
Becky can often be
confusing.

Garden the word
Tal -"gopher"
some people
think of a furry critter that caus-
es havoc on golf courses or,
maybe a large land turtle or the
young person who runs errands
.for the office. How would we
know the difference? We know
exactly how to distinguish them
if we use their scientific names.
In fact, no matter what language
you speak or what country you
are from scientific names are the,
same. The scientific name has
two parts: genus and species.
Think of it like a last (genus) and
first name (species). This system
of two names was developed by
Linnaeus who used Latin
because it was the common sci-
entific language at the time
(1700s). The scientific name is
usually italicized or underlined;
genus is always capitalized and
species is always lower case.
Don't be discouraged about the
difficulty of trying to pronounce
the words, start with a plant or
tree you like and then build from
that point. Notice in the picture I

little room

very little quality soil. I gently

the large tree had part of its

under undue stress.The missing
roots were probably cut away
long ago to make room for the
other shrubs surrounding it.
However, the remaining roots

was easy to eliminate a root rot

Visit your local nursery or gar-

Expecting great things at
Springhill Baptist Church by
Pastor Jackie Hayes: "Ifs all about
making adjustments is what God
continually said to me through
the life and ministry of Avery
Willis. That is why my heart is
blessed as I watch many of you
making those necessary adjust-
ments to get on with your journey
with our Lord. Here is where I
see some of the adjustments in

the life of our church.
"Our willingness to implement
a biblical model of leadership in
our church. This is why I believe
Jan. 2 will prove to be a monu-
mental day as we commissioned a
group of men to study biblical
leadership and lead us to imple-
ment that New Testament model.
"God's work done God's way
will enjoy God's blessings! We
believe that and are excited at the
prospect of getting in place a
group of godly men to work with
our staff in leading our church to
greatness.
"Your commitment to give! We
have made a renewed commit-
ment to aggressively work toward
being debt-free in our ministry at
Springhill. Our only debt is our
Family Life Center, but we are


getting there. Let me encourage
you to do your part as we collec-
tively work to free our resources
for ministry not debt.
"Your commitment to prayer! I
see it all around me. In our 6 a.m.
prayer time on Tuesday morn-
ings; in our 7 p.m. prayer time on
Saturday evenings; in our focused
prayer time in our grace groups;
in other prayer opportunities on
Wednesday as well as other times
throughout the week. There just
seems to be a season of seeking
the Lord in our church. Here is
some good news: God delights to
be found by His seeking children!
I am still expecting God to show
up in all His glory every time we
gather. Continue to seek and He
will be found!
"Avery Willis sent me an e-
mail of great encouragement He
believes our Springhill church is
about to explode with God's pres-
ence. That is my deep belief as
well. God is up to something. He
is about to visit us at Springhill.
My prayer is that we are a people
expecting Him to show up in
great glory!
'Thank you, God, for the jour-
ney. And thank you, God, for our
Springhill family who makes this
journey so much fun. We are on
the way. Do not give up. The best
is just around the corner."
From the Shepherd's Staff, by
Rev. Jeff Overton, senior pastor of
First Baptist Church, Fernandina
Beach: "I am sure that as you go
about your daily business now
you are seeing all the signs of
Valentine's Day approaching. You
can see Cupid and his arrows, the
chocolate candy and, of course,
the hearts. The heart has long
been a symbol of love. The heart
is also a demonstration of our love
and loyalty to Christ. Paul, in writ-


ing to Timothy, says, 'Now flee
from youthful lusts, and pursue
righteousness, faith, love and
peace, with those who call on the
Lord from a pure heart.' 2 Tim.
2:22.-
"Paul tells us in this passage
the characteristics of a pure heart
It's one that is in pursuit of right-
eousness, faith, love and peace. If
we have given our hearts to the"
Lord and truly desire to serve
Him with a pure heart, these will
be characteristics that we pursue
as well. You see, the purpose of
someone who has a pure heart is
to please God and to bring glory
and honor unto Him.
'To obtain a pure heart, one
must give that heart to the Lord
for the cleansing that only He can
bring. That cleansing comes from
a heart that repents of sin and sur-
renders to Jesus Christ as Savior
and Lord. Without that first step,
it is impossible to have a pure
heart. If you are one who is in
need of this step, please call on
me, and let me share with you
God's wonderful plan of salvation.
it will be the best decision you
ever made."
The Rev. Mike Reed, associate
pastor/music of First Baptist and
the sanctuary choir are preparing
the March 20'Easter presentation
of "You Thought of Us." We'll
present this musical at 10:15 a.m.
Sunday'morning March 20 for our
congregation. An additional pres-
entation for the community will be
March 19 at 6:30 p.m.
Mission in Mexico. God is
doing a work of mercy in Juarez
and He is calling us to join Him in
the work. Do you hear Him call-
ing you, too? Has He given you
something to share? Has He
entrusted you with His love, a gift,
a talent, a skill that is needed to


show others how great His love is
for them. If so, then take a step to
answer His call. There are 45 days
until this Mission trip and we
have 48 people committed to go
(60 are needed), $7,000 con-
tributed ($18,000 is needed).
Prayerfully ask God if He has
equipped you to serve in Mexico.
Commitment/registration forms
are available at church. God Bless
you! Andy Foote, Memorial
United Methodist Church.
Youth-led Mexico backpack
ministry. During February, the
youth group of MUMC will be
heading a "Backpacks for Juarez
Children" project. We need your
help to donate school back-packs
that the youth will stuff with
school supplies and other items
for the kids that we will encounter
on the Mexico mission trip. These
can be new or used. Just drop
them off in the youth room. We
will be stuffing them on Sunday.
The Rev. Bruce Jones is pastor of
Memorial United Methodist
Church, 601 Centre Street
The First Presbyterian
Church, 9 North 6th Street,
began a new worship service on
Saturday evenings at 6 p.m. The
first one was on Jan. 22 in the
sanctuary. At these services, we
will celebrate the Lord's Supper
by intinction. These Saturday
evening services will be held
through Lent (March 26). The
content of these services will be
similar to Sunday morning servic-
es and are designed to alleviate
during our busiest season.
Perhaps you might enjoy this
unique worship experience. The
Rev. Conrad Sharps is senior pas-
tor.

Father continue to watch over Us
and keep us in His loving care."

imagine this scenario.
You are at the mall and
decide to get something
to eat You had already
gotten some money from the
ATM, and then you take the
escalator down to the food
court. You decided to grab a
sandwich, forget to wash
your hands and dig right in.
Gross! You would never
think of letting 20 people
come up and rub their hands
on your sandwich, but by not
washing your hands before
you ate, that is effectively
what you have done.
Matt Lauer of "The Today
Show" recently interviewed
Dr. Phillip Tierno, an infec-
tious disease expert, regard-
ing bacterial contamination
of everyday locations such
as taxis, ATM machines,
*escalator rails and so on.
Lauer went about his normal
day and, at several stops
along the way, Tierno would
take culture swabs of the
things that he had just
touched. The results were
shocking. Bacterial contami-
nants of spit, sneezes, vagi-
nal yeast and fecal matter
were found.
The results did not sur-
prise Tierno, who noted that
about 80 percent of cold and
flu infections are passed
through hand to
mouth/nose contact and
some 50 percent of people
.do not properly wash after
going to the restroom.
Notice that I sa.Apr..nr-
v.'kaI, Tier'n. reconend-
ed scrubbing your hands at
the sink for the amount of
time that it takes you to sing
the full chorus of "Happy
Birthday to you" twice
through. Do it some time
and you will see just how
long that really is.
One of the places men-
tioned as a potential source
of infection is the gymnasi-
um or health club. It is often
a warm environment with
lots of hot, sweaty people
using the machines. As you
can imagine, one by one,
members grab onto the rails,
bars and handles of the exer-
cise equipment potentially
passing bacteria from one
person to another.
Many gyms, such as our
local YMCA, provide anti-
septic spray bottles close by
to allow you to "decontami-
nate" the equipment Most
people use these after they
are done with a particular
machine.
In some cases, it is just
not realistic to spray down
each and every handle after
you are done, but you
should try to do it when you
can. During your workout,
you should also try to keep
your hands away from your
eyes, nose and mouth to
reduce your risk of spread-
ing infection. Many recom-
mend even trying to spray
the machines before you use
them. Finally, when you are
done with your workout,
wash your hands again.
If you are already sick,
then as much as your work-
outs mean to you, you
should avoid the gym until
you are well. There are lots
of people there working
hard, becoming winded and
breathing deep, and I am
sure they don't care to suck
your germs deep into their
lungs.

Crusaders end Pirates' season 49-39


FBHS holds

Walker to

seven points

BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Pirate basketball season
came to a screeching haltWednes.
day in the first round of the District
5-4A tournament at Raines. Fer-
nandina Beach High School suf-
fered its third loss of the season at
the hands of Bishop Kenny's
Crusaders 49-39.
"We hunig in there pretty well,"
FBHS Coach Matt Schreiber said.
"We had a hard time scoring for a
long stretch, the end of the first
quarter and the whole second
quarter and stretches in the third
quarter.
"We just needed our best effort
to beat them and didn't quite get
it."
Injuries took their toll.
"Casey (Lowe) turned his ankle
and we had to take Marcus
(Johnson) out for a few minutes;
He banged his head. That hurt'
us," Schreiber said. "Carson
(Rodeffer) missed the last five
games of the year. That hurt us. I
guess it was just too much for us to
overcome."
Sophomore David Swan was
again the Pirates' leading scorer
with 12 points.
"David did an excellent job on
their leading scorer and one of the
top scorers in Northeast Florida
(Brendan Walker), holding him to
seven points. He averages over
20," Schreiber said.
The Pirates jumped out to a 13-
8 16ad bver Ki-nb f'B'uf ARiO_' d
just four points. to Kenny's 14 in th'e
second quarter.
The Pirates played catch-up the
rest of the game.
Johnson had eight points and
eight rebounds for FBHS. Pat
Dunlap scored six and Terrence
Albertie scored five and pulled
down four rebounds.
The Pirates (15-10) lost twice
during the regular season to
Bishop Kenny (20-6).
"It's a big rivalry for us,"
Schreiber said. "We just didn't get
it done this year. We had a good
season, but probably the low point
was our inability to beat Bishop
Kenny. It's going to be very high
on our priority list next year."
District 5-4A is a tough district,
but Schreiber said it may ease up
as he expects First Coast to move
out of the field next season when
the district alignments are released
in the next few weeks.
'They've really gotten good,"
Schreiber said.
Also on Wednesday, Andrew
Jackson soundly defeated Stanton

nament continues at Raines.
But the season is over for the
Pirates, who bid farewell to six sen-
iors.
"This senior class has really
held things together," Schreiber
said. "'They've had winning records
both their junior and senior years.
I think they should have pride in
what they accomplished as Pirate
basketball players.
, "I told the guys (Wednesday)
after the game, 'When you're wear-
ing a Fernandina Beach uniform in
the last game of your senior year,
that makes you a Pirate for life.'"

tournament at West Nassau in
Callahan to kick off the 2005 sea-

host Warriors, who topped Hilliard
3-0 on Tuesday.
FBHS senior Ryan Estes threw

just one hit Kevin Beck was next
on the mound for the Pirates and
threw a couple of scoreless and
no-hit innings. Blaine Dickinson
followed with an inning of score-
less, no-hit relief Senior DJ. Hyers
finished out, giving up all the runs
to Fleming Island.
"(Fleming) finally caught up
with some things," FBHS Coach
Ken Roland said. "We didn't walk
a batter in seven innings. I thought
that was really outstanding for this
time of year.
'We played OK, but I wouldn't
call it mid-season form by any
stretch."
Dickinson led the Pirate offense
with a double, which sparked a
rally in the third inning. Marcus
Carter and CJ. Crosby had run-
scoring singles and the Pirates
scored their third run of the inning
on a pass ball.
In the seventh inning, Hunter
Burbank- had< a -double ,,and
Dickinson drove him in with a,
ground ball for the winhiingtuhk.
"It was just a measuring stick,"
Roland said. "It was an opportuni-
ty to give pitchers some innings
and the hitters a chance to see
someone else."
The Pirates played in the cham-
pionship game Thursday.
The Pirates' regular season
opens Thursday at Bolles.
"I think we're probably looking
at rebuilding a little bit," Roland
said. "Our pitching depth is very
young. We're trying to get them
some experience and get their feet
wet earlier. We're using this week
to do that"
The Warriors had senior Josh
Blanton on the mound Tuesday.
He threw a two-hitter, striking out

Flashes get a rematch with ACD


JOHN L CRAWFORD
For the News-Leader

The third time proved to be the
charm for the Hilliard Middle-
Senior High, School varsity bas-
ketball team Monday nighL as the
Flashes (11-12) shook off two reg-
ular-season losses to Baldwin and
thumped the Indians 5943 when it
counted --in thefirst round of the
District 7-2A tournament held at
University Christian.
Rebounding was the order of
the night for Hilliard, as the
Flashes pulled down a remarkable
38 boards. Hilliard head coach
Randy Smith cited his team's 26
defensive rebounds-- and more
importantly its ability to limit
Baldwian' second chance point
opportunities was key in the vic-
ry.

ing.",
,Junior Daniel "Big Boy"
Thomas scored 16 points, leading
a balanced Hilliard offense that
attacked Baldwin on the inside and
from the perimeter.
Sophomore Andrae Walker had
his way in the paint, scoring 15
points and dominating the boards
with 12 rebounds, while Nick Thrift
scored four points and pulled down
10 rebounds in a strong defensive
effort
Hilliard's season-leading scor-
er, senior Zack Whittenburg,
scored 13 points after being shut
down by Baldwin in the first half.
Junior Dennis Alderman also
scored 13. Both Whittenburg and
Alderman knocked down two 3-
point field goals.
Smith said his team did a nice
job adjusting to how Baldwin was
defending Whittenburg and mak-
ing the necessary changes to free
him up.
"In the third quarter we set
some back screen that gave him
tow good looks and the floor just
opened up from there," Smith said.

ball, committing only 10 turnovers,
while recording eight steals and
11 tipped passes.
The team shot 51 percent from
the floor (38 percent from behind
the 3-point line) and 66 percent
from the free throw line.
Hilliard is now faced with' the
unenviable task of playing the
state's No. 1 team in 2-A- Arlington
Country Day. The Flashes lost to
the Apaches by double digits at
home last month.


Smith said if his team has to be
eliminated, it might as well be by
the best, although he isn't yet ready
to concede a victory to Apaches.
"Everybody's gonna have to go
through them (to advance) is the
way I see it," the coach said. "We're
looking forward to being that one
stoplight town who gets to play a
powerhouse like ACD."
The Flashes and Apaches are
set to tip at 7:30 p.m. tonight at
Bishop Snyder in Jacksonville.

TPhis should be an excellent weekend for
fishing with a full moon arriving on
Thursday. There will also be a high tide
at 5:19 a.m. Saturday, giving jetty and
backwater fishermen a falling tide to fish on both
Saturday and Sunday mornings. Low tide will
arrive at 11:30 a.m. Saturday.
Some of the best fishing in recent days has
been for sea trout in the upper reaches of Bell's
River, where speck fishermen are enjoying fast sea
trout action while fishing deep turns in the river,
oyster bars and docks. Once
again, one of the best fishing
tactics has been drifting a live.

torpedo-style trout float. Look
for the last few hours of the

Sea trout must be released
until March 1.

Alive shrimp or bullhead minnow fished slowly

Offshore fishing for black sea bass has picked
up at KBY and FA reefs. Sea bass are holding at
the broken concrete reefs at KBY and small rock
reefs at FA reef. Once you have caught a small sea
bass with fresh squid, cut them up and use the cut
bait for fast action.

News-Leader '


When Beverly Chapman com-
pleted her research toward a
master's degree, she could have.
stored her data away never to
think of it again.
Instead, she decided that the
community might benefit from
knowing what she discovered
about the education of Nassau
County's black students. With
valuable information about the
history of several schools for
black students, Chapman prom-
ised to transform her work into
something from which future
generations could learn.
On Monday at 6:30 p.m. the.
researcher and educator will fol-
low-through on her pledge with
the unveiling of an eight-panel
art display at -the Peck
Community Center, 516 South
10th St. in Fernandina Beach.
Chapman commissioned the 16 x
20-inch framed panels that illus-
trate her research topic, "The
Education of Blacks in Nassau
County, 1860s-1960s." The art
features images unearthed dur-
ing years plowing through books
and archives. A discussion will
follow the unveiling.

What do goats have to do with

The marketing version has
goats (Cape goat cheese is world-

of the wine you're drinking. The
other story is about defining the

WINE Continued from lB
South African wines are either
100 percent shiraz or a blend
with shiraz dominant. That is the
same wine-making style as found
in France's Rhone Valley (French
Huguenots started the Cape
wine industry 400 years ago).
Rhone wines have the French
appellation C6tes du Rhone
(referring to the hill country
above the river) and C6tes du
Rhone Villages (referring to the
tight communes that control
wine quality). When the Fairview
Estate's Back family (Charles
and son Cyril) replanted the farm
in the 1990s and instituted mod-
ern wine-making techniques,
they decided on a play on words
for their lead product's name.
Thus C6tes du Rhone became
Goats do Roam and Goats do
Roam Villages.
Both of these Fairview Estate
wines are available locally as is
the competitive Goat-Roti. In a
blind tasting, the Goats do Roam
Villages ($11 at Wine
Warehouse) was far superior -
strong, robust, smooth, spicy -
to its nondescript, acidy and thin
lower priced ($10 at Harris
Teeter) brother. Goat-Roti was

deemed almost as good as Goats
do Roam Villages, but at $16.49
(Harris Teeter) not a good value.
A fourth African shiraz tasted
was Porcupine Ridge Syrah
(WW: $9), but this was consid-
ered milder with not as much
character as Villages, but better
than the junior Goats do Roam.
We compared these wines to
our favorite shiraz, the Australian
Rosemont, which we found
smoother, but not as spicy or
robust as Goats do Roam
Villages.
The difference, of course is
that the African is a blend which
includes the brooding, earthy
pinotage. Goats do Roam
Villages is a full bodied wine with
ripe tannins, good structure and
a full, rich, concentrated finish,
which it inherits from the pino-
tage. Pinotage was developed in
South Africa in 1925, a cross of
pinot noir and Hermitage (cin-
saut), combining the noble char-
acteristics of the former with the
reliability of the latter. Unique to
South Africa, it can produce com-
plex and fruity wines with age
but is also often very drinkable
when young.
Pure pinotage is not for every-
one. If you like robust, earthy

wines such as red zinfandel you
will love pinotage. The one pure
pinotage we found was Attacqua
($15 at Wine Warehouse) pro-
duced by Southern Right vine-
yards in the western Cape. In
1994, Anthony Hamilton Russell
founded Southern Right Cellars
as a pinotage specialist, and is
credited with making this wine
very drinkable. Pinotage has a
strong earthy, musty aroma and
flavor that makes it more of an
aperitif wine as it tends to over-
power foods. It went well with
extra sharp cheddar. We intend
to try it with Moroccan dishes
such as a lamb tagine redolent
with cumin and coriander blend-
ed with dried fruits. It is not as
dry as a cab, and not as spicy as
a zin. Pour this wine at least 10
minutes before drinking to let
some of the mustiness dissipate
and the complexities of the wine
to develop.
Another South African wine
we are adding to our permanent
collection is Roodeberg, a red
wine from the large Cape winery,
KWV, which specializes in caber-
net sauvignon. Cab is the back-
bone of Roodeberg ($10 $11 at
Amelia Liquors and Harris
Teeter) but it is the addition of

shiraz to the blend that con-
tributes to the complexity of the
wine and provides softness, a vel-
vety palate, and its intense purple
color. Roodeberg means "red
mountain" and was inspired by
the red hue of the Cape
Mountains at sunset The wine
has received many international
and national awards over the
years. Tasters commented that
"something is going on" when
you drink this wine. There are
nuances of green pepper, cinna-
mon spice and blackberry scents
that contribute to a fascinating,
complex nose. Hints of chocolate
combines well with the intense
wood character. It is ideal with
red meats, ranging from stews
and casseroles to roasts and
steaks. Unlike a lot of low-priced
California cabs, the wine is well-
balanced and the fruit is not
heavy. Neither the Porcupine
Ridge nor Vinum cabs compared
well to Roodeberg in our tasting.
Hopefully, this inexpensive
gem will start showing up on
local restaurant wine lists to
replace the pedestrian California
cabs that are commonplace.
Robert Weintraub writes
about wine monthly for the News-
Leader


DEMONS Continued from 2B
Constantine with the latest
* weaponry: "Bullet shavings from
the assassination attempt on the
* pope, holy water from the river
of Jordan, and, you'll love this,
screech beetles." The screech
beetles come in a little match-
box. 'To the fallen," Beeman
explains, "the sound is like nails
* on a blackboard." Later there is a
scene where Constantine is inun-
* dated by the creatures of hell,
and desperately tries to reach the
matchbox and GET those beetles
to SCREECHING.
Rachel Weisz plays Angela
* Dodson, an LA police detective
0 whose twin sister, Isabel, has
apparently committed suicide.
Isabel reported seeing demons,
so Angela consults Constantine,
who nods wisely and wonders if
Isabel jumped, or was metaphysi-


cally pushed. Later in the film, to
show Angela that she also has
the gift of seeing the world
behind the world, Constantine
holds her underwater in a bath-
tub until she passes out and sees
the torments of hell. No bright
white corridors and old friends
and Yanni for her. You wonder
what kind of an LA. cop would
allow herself to be experimental-
ly drowned in a bathtub by
a guy who lives over a bowling
alley.
Together, they prowl the
nighttime streets. At one point,
Constantine needs to consult
Midnite (Djimon Hounsou), a
former witch doctor who runs a
private nightclub where half-
angels and half-demons can get
half-loaded and talk shop. There
is a doorman. To gain admit-
tance, you have to read his mind
and tell him what's on the other


side'of the card he's holding up.
'Two frogs on a bench,"
Constantine says. Could have
been a lucky guess.
There is a priest in the film,
the alcoholic Father Hennessy
(Pruitt Taylor Vince), whose
name, I guess, is product place-
ment. Strange that there is a
priest, since that opens the door
to Catholicism and therefore to
the news that Constantine is not
doomed unless he wages a life-
long war against demons, but
needs merely go to confession;
three Our Fathers, three Hail
Marys and he's outta there.
Strange that movies about Satan
always require Catholics. You
never see your Presbyterians or
Episcopalians hurling down
demons.
The forces of hell manifest
themselves in many ways. One
victim is eaten by flies. A young


girl is possessed by a devil, and
Constantine shouts, "I need a
mirror! Now! At least 3 feet
high!" He can capture the demon
in the mirror and throw it out the
window, see, although you won-
der why supernatural beings
would have such low-tech securi-
ty holes.
Keanu Reeves has a deliber-
ately morose energy level in the
movie, as befits one who has
seen hell, walks among half-
demons and is dying. He keeps
on smoking. Eventually he con-
fronts Satan (Peter Stormare),
who wears a white suit. (Satan to
tailor: "I want a suit just like
God's.") Oh, and the plot also
involves the Spear of Destiny,
which is the spear that killed
Christ, and which has been miss-
ing since World War II, which
seems to open a window to the
possibility of Nazi villains, but no.
