Ash Street building good for downtown?
A four-story building planned
for a mostly vacant lot in downtown
Fernandina Beach could herald an
economic transformation of the
central business district.
The proposed building-- which
will be among the tallest downtown
- would house two residences and
two commercial establishments. It
is planned for the back yard of the
former Lannon home at Third and
Ash streets. '
"In my opinion, we need some
economic development down-
town," said city Planning Super-
visor Lupita McClenning.
"I think a mixed-use (of resi-
dential and commercial) is where
we should be moving."
McClenning conceded, though,
"We're going to have compatibility
issues" as taller buildings are built
in the central business district,
which includes both sides of Ash
Street from Front Street to Central
. Compatibility is a concern to
Julie Ferreira of Concerned
Friends of Fernandina, who called
the proposed building "a drastic
change" that is inappropriate.
"It seems this now will open the
way for every available lot to build
a 'mixed-use project' that could
tower over its neighbors and
change the scale and character of
our historic downtown," Ferreira
said. "Attention needs to be paid
to scale, visual impact and what's
compatible with the surrounding
neighborhood and businesses. This
would allow our downtown to main-
tain its distinctive flavor."
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners approved a conditional use
permit for the building Feb. 17. A
conditional use permit was
required because it will be a mul-
tiple-family dwelling. There will be
residences on the top two floors,
businesses on the bottom two
floors, according to architect John
Patrick Keogh and Frances
Clark of McLean, Va., bought the
property from Lena B. Lannon in
August for $530,000. It includes a
bungalow and the Lannon home
on Third Street, across from the
Florida House Inn. The houses are
being renovated separately for
commercial spaces. The entire
property is 100 feet by 100 feet.

The first private enterprise at
Mafn Beach on record was under-
taken by Morris and Claire Moore
in 1929. At that time, the only other
business near the beaches was the
publicly owned Casino, a large
building which originally stood at
the northeast corner of Atlantic
and North Fletcher, and was
moved directly across to the beach
front several years later, in the early
The casino rose two stories
high on large sturdy pilings which
were actually on the beach. When
the sun's rays were too much for
some to handle, bathers would sit
or stretch out on beach blankets
underneath the building in open
space that was at least eight feet
high on the beach side. It contained
a skating rink and bowling alley
upstairs and a restaurant down-
stairs, along with restrooms and
showers. An earlier casino had
been destroyed by a fire in 1902.
-Morris and Claire my par-
ents moved to the beach with
their seven children from their
home on Ash Street and purchased
a small cottage on the corner of
South Fletcher and Atlantic
The following summer, Claire,
an energetic woman who was hap-
piest when she was very busy,
acquired a license and began sell-
ing cold drinks, crackers and candy
on the porch to beach visitors, then
added sandwiches. This was on
the strip of land now occupied by
Beachside Commons and Sandy
Bottoms, and the Moores paid $300
for the property.
Morris continued to operate his
Centre Street barber shop. In 1931
the Moores had the cottage moved
to the rear of the property and a
larger two-story building con-
structed in which they opened a
small restaurant and grocery store.
Living quarters were in the back
and the upstairs room were rentals,

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Keep a little bit of nature
, Re: the planned marina and boat slip construction
("Plans for marina on Nassau Sound a shock," Feb.
I have lived in the Fernandina Beach area since I
was born. Over 38 years I have seen many changes.
A few for the good and a few more that weren't so
good. I had the privilege to work at the Florida
Welcome Center (1-95) for several years and always
heard people say that they enjoyed the Amelia Island
area because itwas "unspoiled." If they had only seen
the Amelia Island I knew as a child they may not
think that "unspoiled" was the correct description.
Like so many other people here I commuted to the
Jacksonville area to work for many years. I was lucky
enough to work on the south side of Jacksonville, so
AIA was my chosen route in the morning. Every day
I marveled at the stunning view coming over the
bridge to leave the island. And at least three to four
times a week I would see cars parked along the side
of the road and photographers setting up their equip-
mentto take photos of the wildlife. I also saw first hand
how the osprey population grew over the years. There
was a time not so long ago that you simply didn't see
ospreys in any significant numbers. Now they grace
the skies between Amelia Island Plantation and the
Dames Point Bridge in wondrous flight Dipping and
diving to surprise the fish below.
., waS also lucky enough to catch a glimpse at a bob-
cat family on several occasions. I marveled at how
quickly the kittens grew to adulthood.
Yes, I realize that some change is good. But I
would like to keep just a small portion of Amelia
Island' and the surrounding area "the way it used to
be." No cars, no boats, just a few people trying to catch
a gliipse of nature.

me. (The light) turned red suddenly." The truck dri-
ver's words seem to suggest that he expected the
driver in front of him to run the red light; that he him-
self was not prepared to stop; moreover, that he could
not stop the big rig in any event because he'd left him-
self no margin for error.
Too many times on too many days, I see these log
trucks barreling east on AlA, some seeming to exceed
the posted speed limits and many routinely running
red lights, especially those at Arrigo Boulevard and
Barnwell Road. It's easy to see by their speed and the
weight they're hauling that they have no intention of
stopping as they come within several hundred yards
of an intersection in which a light has turned to red.
More to the point, they couldn't stop safely if they
tried; factors of excessive approach speed and heavy
loads. Unfortunately, many of us witnessed an exam-
ple of the consequences last Thursday at A1A and
Barnwell Road. As Nassau County Fire/Rescue Chief
Chuck Cooper said, it truly was "miraculous" that
only minor injuries resulted from this accident.
Log trucks are easily the most frequent heavy
haulers running in and through our communities
along A1A east of 1-95. Yes, they represent commerce.
They have a job to do. But it's not one for which we
can afford to put the safety of our citizens at risk. If
anything, the drivers, of these big rigs need to exer-
cise more caution, given their enormous loads; not
"bully" their way trough major intersections and
then inmmovably take over the left-hand driving lane
as if nothing is more critically important than their own
Virtually all of us living and working heremustat
some point use 41A to get from one place to anoth-
er. It's not unreasonable to expect that we'should be
able to do so safely without fearing a repeat of last
Thursday's mishap that could bring with it higher
and truly unacceptable human costs.

of last Thursday's log truck accident at A1A and
Barnwell Road ("Log truck spill scary," Feb. 181. In
fact, as most who live here and ply A1A, the main east-
west artery from 1-95 to Fernandina Beach. on a daily

At 14th and Sadler on a recent Saturday, I was
stopped at a red light. As traffic started to move
across in front of me, the first three cars all held driv-
ers holding cell phones to their ears. They were either
on a conference call among themselves or three sep-
arate locations. At any rate, they were driving one-
handed and at least somewhat distracted.
This is a concern for me whenever I call my daugh-
ter. If she answers while driving I immediately tell her
I will call her later at home. My point to all of this is
this. Cell phones in restaurants, theaters, and grocery
stores are only annoying. What if, while talking to a
family member who was using their cell phone while
driving, you heard a terrible sickening crash and
maybe their last dying breath? Tliinkabout it. There
is a time and place for ever .thing. Pull over to use cell

Teachers earn their degrees
Re: The letter to the editor 'Teacher salaries,"
Jan. 26, regarding the article, "Schools pay 122 work-
ers $50,000 plus," Jan. 19.
In addition to the four-year bachelor of science
degree that I earned (yes, earned, not simply com-
pleted), I went on to earn (there's that word again) my
master of science degree in education. It took me
six years. During that time I worked a full-time job and
several part-time jobs to pay for that education. In addi-
tion, I started a family.
In order to earn (aai, note he worg ern)hat

have received my degree. However, because I demon-
strated my mastery of the knowledge required of
that degree, I earned it. I might add that I was five
months pregnant when I took this test. If you have
ever tried taking a four-hour test with no bathroom
breaks when you are five months pregnant, the word
earned takes on a whole new meaning!
In order to teach in Florida, all candidates must past
the College Level Academic Skills Test. This is a four-
hour essay and multiple-choice test on English lan-
guage skills, reading and mathematics. It is similar to
an FCAT test, only on a college level. The test must
be passed in order to be awarded a teaching certifi-
cate. Also in order to receive a teaching certification,
a candidate must pass a general knowledge exam
and subject area exam. These tests demonstrate mas-
tery of the knowledge needed to be a teacher and to
teach a specific subject and/or grade level.
Let me add here that when ] took these two tests
(both on the same day), I had just had a baby three
Weeks before. I won't even go into the details of how
painful that was to certain body parts, but again the
word earned takes on another whole new meaning!
Next came the national boards. This took approx-
imately 500 extra hours of work in one school year.
This was while I was teaching full time and raising a ,
2- and a 4-year old.
In addition to' writing six papers, eadh apprii-
mately 25 pages long, I also had to take four 90 minute-
exams. All of this was to demonstrate not only my
understanding and knowledge of subject matter and
students, but also my abilities as a teacher, a leader,
collaborator and member of the community at large.
Knowledge and mastery had to be demonstrated and
the certification had to be earned.
All of these degrees, tests and certifications were
earned at my expense..
You would think with all of this, I would be mak-
ing that munificent salary of $50,000, but I don't even

school by 7:15 and, if I'm ;ucky. leave by 4:15. I take
home two to three hours of work at night. This gives
me an 11-12 hour work day, plus I usually do about 10
hours of school work on a typical weekend. This
gives me a 65-70 hour work week, and I am not the
exception. Many teachers put in this many hours and
more. And have you ever been by the schools during
the summer? There are always teachers working dur-
ing the summer to get a head start on the new year.
And since we don't get paid during the summer, we
are doing this for free.
So before you pass judgment on how lavish our
salaries are and how unearned our degrees and cer-
tifications, maybe you need to gain little mre knbwl-
edge about the subject. L, ; e

Keep it simple:
We think the city of Fernandina Beach makes
code enforcement too complicated. It's really quite
simple: Make the law, enforce the law.
A case in point is a 35-foot-tall house at 2252
South Fletcher that, in our opinion, clearly violates
the intent of the law.
That intent, as expressed by the city commis-
sion in numerous and lengthy debates, was to
restrict beachfront homes to a maximum of 35 feet
in height shorter if the house was sited closer
to the neighbor's property line.
The law is not particularly confusing on this
point: A minimum 5-foot side-yard setback is
required on South Fletcher plus an additional foot
away from the property line for each additional
foot in height over 20. Add five feet in height, add
five feet in setback.
A city building height subcommittee which
included three builders, among them the one con-
structing the South Fletcher home, the top cit.
planner, b'ild gofficiald ..aU 1 n 66d
members -- discussed that law t e I also
was discussed by the Planning Advisory Board, in
the presence of the city attorney.
The planning board made clear it did not wish
to change the law to allow taller buildings closer to
property lines because it wanted to preserve ocean
views, breezeways and smaller homes on the
City commissioners also discussed the matter,
in the presence of the city attorney and city manag-
er, and did not overrule planning board.
How is it, then, that a city code enforcement
officer can interpret misinterpret, in our view -
the intent of the law and allow this home to be so
tall and so close to its neighbor?
This is not the planners' fault that whole staff
has turned over repeatedly, and we're on our third
chief planner in the past three years. In any case,
the planner's interpretation mirrored the intent of
the commission that passed the height and set-
But the code enforcement officer's interpreta-
tion ruled. Is the building department making law
here? Or is it receiving direction from our city
attorney and city manager?
This isn't an isolated case. There are too many
instances of a city code enforcement office misin-
terpreting or ignoring city code most promi-
nently, issuing a permit to allow the Port of
Fernandina to tear down two historic homes down-
town. There has been no penalty levied for that
We don't know who's at fault, but in the end the
buck stops with City Manager Bob Mearns and
city commissioners. They set policy and oversee
those who enforce policy.
s Is the city responsive to the wishes of the peo-
ple, otAto the wishes of a few?
; Wethink we know the answer. The proof is in
the puidng, and it leaves a bad taste.

"A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon it
adds up to real money."
U.S. Sen. Everett Dirksen, an Illinois
Republican, circa 1960s
What the late senator from Illinois was
telling his constituents was that when
politicians start playing around with
public money, the real value of those
funds starts to lose significance. That same phe-
nomenon seems to be occurring here in Nassau
County, and while we're still a long way from the bil-
lion-dollar mark, the spending priorities that top the
list of some public officials are a little troubling.
While there are several "big-ticket issues" to
choose from, including complex multimillion dollar
projects like the county landfill, others may be less
costly but are just as illuminating when it comes to,
understanding the commission's mindset as it
relates to spending the taxpayers' monies.
Within 30 days of being sworn in, the new county
commission (except for Commissioner Marianne
Marshall) suddenly decided the old commission
chambers on Pages Dairy Road were no longer suf-
ficient to handle the overflow crowds that frequently
show up at commission meetings.
According to a financial action request for
$100,171 on Feb. 1, it has been determined "the cur-
rent facility regularly requires citizens to stand out-
side in inclement weather due to size of chambers.
The new chamber facility will more than double the
number of citizens allowed inside the facility." The
problem is, most residents can't remember more
than one or two occasions annually where the few
good citizens of Nassau County who actually attend
commission meetings couldn't find an empty seat in
the current chambers.
Of course, the requested $100,000 will do more
than just provide seats for those phantom citizens
that are being forced to stand outside in the
"inclement weather" while critical county business
is being debated. In fact, only $58,225 of that
amount has been earmarked.to actually renovate
the new physical layout of the room. Nearly $33,000
of additional taxpayer money is being set aside for
all the bells and whistles, the electronic "toys," that
S will put our county commission
... into the big leagues.
| This includes $3,500 for a
61-inch HDTV (wouldn't you
'' love one of those in your own
home?), $3,908 for a "smart
board" (like forecasters use to
track storm systems) and
$11,200 for 14 Dell 17-inch
monitors so all the major play-
ers have their own (haven't
Mike Boyle they heard of sharing?). The
only thing missing is a Jumbo-

MINUTE included in next year's budget.
And exactly where is the
$100,000 going to come from?
Isn't this the same county that is supposedly facing
critical financial problems? Not to worry. Already
anticipating criticism from taxpayers who are finally
getting tired of all the red ink in the county budget,
County Administrator Mike Mahaney told commis-
sioners, "I think you could cover all of this cost with
Those, of course, are the fees that are collected
from developers and were originally intended to
help defray the additional cost of county infrastruc-
ture required by the increased development;
Apparently the option of cushier commission cham-
bers has moved to the top of the commissioners'
wish-list. While newly elected commissioners Jim B.
Higginbotham and Tom Branan quickly supported
the idea, even incumbent commissioner Floyd
Vanzant proved to be an easy sell. "I have a tenden-
cy to change my mind somewhat if impact fees will
cover it," he said.
Only Marshall felt the current chambers were
sufficient for the majority of the meetings. In fact,
she had the temerity to suggest that these same
funds might be better used to build a new sheriff's
In response, County Attorney Mike Mullin quick-
ly pointed out that no one had requested impact
funds be used for a new sheriff's office, and
Commission Chair Ansley Acree noted that the cou-
What is a teacher's value to society?

Pythagoras was a Greek philosopher and
General Robert E. Lee graduated from

."Ask not what your country can do for you, but
what you can do for your country."
"I have a dream."
T here is really only one thing all of these
have in common, at least for me they
are words and thoughts and statements I
learned, and learned about, from teachers.
Maybe I am just lucky, and I just had the right
teacher Or maybe I would have learned all of the
above, and alfhe other things I learned in school,
without my teachers. Maybe my teachers were just
babysitters who could care less if I learned a single
thing. Maybe not!
I love to write because I had great teachers. I
studied algebra and trigonometry and geometry, and
understood these subjects, because I had dedicated
teachers who guided me through the rigors of the
discipline. And my history teachers led me into the
past through their words and passion, so that I felt
what it was like to live in times past and that I, we
would not be doomed to repeat some of the worst
that has happened to mankind.
So what is the value of teach-
ers in society? To some it's
10/12 of an annual salary, but to
those of us who learned from
teachers their value is priceless.
Of course there are some bad

GOLDFISH clutches of this intellectual seda-
tive, and teachers are the educa-
tors who help us along the way.
When something is wrong in society, we want
help to remedy the problem. If there's a fire, we call
the fire department. If there's a crime, we call the
police. If our children are lacking in knowledge, we
call upon teachers to educate them.
In turn for their honorable work and service,
we as a society pay them bargain-basement salaries.

We would rather pay a professional "superstar" $10
million a year than pay every teacher $100,000 a year
(much less $50,000). And how stupid is
that!? Who really is the superstar, the athlete or
entertainer or the teacher, the "copper" or fire-
I am not a teacher (and have never been one). I
have coached for 20 years, so I think I have a small
appreciation what it's like to teach, but I have only
experienced 1/100th of what they go through, and
trust me, at times, "it ain't easy!"
We parents fill our little loved ones with all of our
Karma and some of our dogma, then send them off
for six or seven hours each day to be taught about a
little bit of everything, that will hopefully point them
in the right direction when they are out in the world
on their own.
My son is getting a good education, not because
it's the best money can buy, (the teachers' salaries
certainly attest to .that!), but because the teachers
put education before income.
Unfortunately, the lack of society's willingness to
invest in education, and the associated narrow-mind-
edness of some to the value of educators, is an indi-
cation that ignorance is triumphing over knowledge.
Our community recently lost a well-loved and tal-
ented teacher, Teresa McCoy. She embodied what
education is all about the love of learning and the
love for life. Her students, fellow faculty and parents
benefited immeasurably from this wonderful person.
She taught because she loved to teach, not for a $10
million salary. It's just too bad that she and all of her
fellow educators are not truly recognized for all of
the good they db, and have done, to make our socie-
ty a better place.

most slippery swamps there is: the peren-
nial debate about the mommy track, the
monmmy trap arid "The Myth of the Perfect Mother"
(Newsweek, Feb. 21) He's up to his eyeballs in trou-
ble about a speech he made at a conference on

Workforce," in which he said that the reason there
are so few women in top positions of science and
engineering is because women are less capable than

ty of aptitude at the high end," he said.
Translation: Women are not as smart as men are
in those areas.
Natural Extrapolation: And maybe others.
At the conference last month Dr. Summers intro-
duced his "high-powered job hypothesis," which
posits that "married women" are not willing to put in
an 80-hour work week. He said this is because of
"people's legitimate family concerns." (What peo-
ple's family concerns? Women's? Our husbands'?
Our children's? Our children's teachers'? Our
employers'? Our university presidents'? Our moth-
A note on "married women": Not all women
choose to marry. Nor do all married women decide
to become mothers. Some single women decide to
become mothers. Some married women have chil-
dren and subsequently divorce: Now they are single
mothers, no longer "married." Regardless of marital
status, which is beside the point, not all women are
able to bear children. And no woman I know bears
children on a precisely predictable actuarial course.
See how complicated this is?
Such is the magic of maternal matters.
Dr. Summers' comments were so careless and
off-the-wall that it's hard to know where to begin to
nt at the top
educate him or to even drum up the desire to do so.
But he is the head of Harvard, after all, and at
Tuesday's faculty meeting he pledged to temper his
"words and actions in ways that convey respect and
help us work together more harmoniously." In the
spirit of giving him one more chance, let's try to
straighten this out.
If women haven't made it to the top in science
and engineering, it is for three main reasons. The
first we can't change. The second we might change.
And we must change the third as soon as possible.
Biology. Women, and not men, are the ones
who can be pregnant, deliver and lactate to feed off-
spring. All of these are time-consuming and some-
times very challenging activities for which a woman
is on call 24/7. I'm no Einstein, but by my calculation
that's 168 hours a week, more than twice the 80-hour
workweek that is normal at the top of the profes-
sions in question.
Culture. Usually it's Mom who winds up as
cruise director figuring out the Halloween cos-
tumes, labeling the camp socks, knowing when the
library books are due, all that stuff. Family work is
deeply satisfying, and it can be fun. Even if you're a
Ph. D. That's why lots of women are willing to tend
to it in their "free" time. And why many fathers (and
grandparents) are happy to pitch in.
The Reason that Mhst be Changed ASAP:
There are still some people in high places (and low)
who don't think women are as smart or as capable or
as committed to their work as men are. There are
also those who still think that if a woman becomes a
mother, she should stay home, or work part-time;
she should cut back somehow, no matter what If she
chooses to stay in the "high-powered" arena shell
have problems keeping up. And anyway, if her hus-
band has a "high-powered" job then she shouldn't
need one as well.
It's this line of thinking that we thought had gone
out with the girdle.
Will Dr. Summers stay or will he go? We don't
know yet If he holds to his Tuesday promise to
begin listening "more, and more carefully," he has a
Sarah Finnie Robinson is a writer and the mother

problems? Not to worry.
ple of hundred thousand dollars available in impact
fees would not go very far on such a project.
It's kind of like asking the children before
Christmas, "Look kids, we can use our meager sav-
ings on toys, or we can use them on some mittens,
warmer jackets and more wood for the fireplace.
What'll it be?" Duh! That's why responsible parents
don't let the children make the important decisions.
Perhaps the commissioners should ask Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves to give them a guided tour of his
facility in order to see if his needs for that $100,000
are more acute than their need for a state-of-the-art
commission chamber. They would find that the
sheriff's administration is housed in eight separate
buildings, none of which are connected to give safe
passage in "inclement weather." Of the eight build-
ings, five are portables (like mobile homes), several
of which would probably have difficulty passing a
code inspection. Storage space is nonexistent, and
dedicated personnel are making do with conditions
that most of us wouldn't tolerate.
But this goes well beyond the issues of comfort
and convenience. The radio system that these offi-
cers must depend on for their safety (and ours) has
been inadequate for decades. Not one of their build-
ings could withstand hurricane-force winds, and we
all know what the storms of 2004 did to our commu-
nity. Think about it! If we take a direct hit from a
hurricane in 2005 and you need assistance from the
sheriff's department, they may be wiped out like the
rest of us. Not too comforting, is it.
Maybe we can all hunker-down in the new com-

Black history events continue.
Black history continues to be an important
part of February, even though it is cele-
brated all year long. The annual Read-in
Chain at First Missionary Baptist
Church is always held on the first Sunday in
February. It begins a month-long celebration of
black history. It has become better each year.
Along with other participants this year was
Ernie Albert who brought us "Why Did God
Make Roaches," and encouraged everyone to
check out the library at the Peck Center where
most black materials can be found.
Macedonia A.M.E. Church will have its annual
Women's Day Celebration Sunday at 11 a.m.
Keeping with the black history celebration,
African attire will be worn. Missionary Elease:
Lawrence will be bringing the message.
Everybody is invited to share in this experience.
First Missionary's annual Karumba celebration
will be held tonight at the Emma B. Delaney fel-
lowship hall. Many different food dishes of the
black culture will be served. There may be some
chicken feet, hoppin johns, barbecue pig feet, ox
tails, cracklin cornbread, curried chicken and
more. A great feast will begin at 6 p.m., continuing
our black history celebration.
Alfred and Jane Reshard were home from New
York for the past month on vacation. They spent
quality time with family and friends while here.
Alfred went fishing and caught a few fish. Jane

FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 25,2005/News-Leader
When the world shifts, have as your foundation Jesus Christ
S... 3 "think we're all aware of the need
I for strong ethical and spiritual
S. leadership in our world today.
SWe've seen and heard of many
high-profile preachers, politicians,
business leaders and sports figures
that have fallen from grace. In fact,
I've had young people come to me
and say: "You know, it's really tough
to tell people I'm a Christian when
Conrad the leaders we're supposed to follow
Sharps and respect (folks who say they're
... Christian) make such a mockery of
our faith. Who in the world can I
NOTES It's a valid question and it's hard
to answer, although trust is essential-
for civilized society, ultimately we
can't put our trust and devotion into
any other human being. That's why
it is imperative for the Christian to
place his or her faith on the solid
rock, the only one who will never let
you down: Jesus Christ.
Where do you place your trust?
Who or what will ultimately give
meaning and purpose to your life (at
its best and its worst)? What is the
foundation upon which we will build
our lives and place our faith?
Listen to Jesus' instruction from
the gospel of Luke:
"I will show you what he is like
who comes to me and hears my words
and puts them into practice. He is like
a man building a house, who dug
down deep and laid the foundation on
rock. When a flood came, the torrent
struck that house but could not shake
it, because it was well built."
How beneficial this word is for us
to remember when the earth seems
to shift right under our feet; when
someone we love dearly, and have
shared our life with for many years,
is diagnosed with terminal cancer or
when we're called into the office at
work and informed that due to down-
sizing or reorganization, we no
longer have a job. At times like this
we just know we're going to fall
down and the earth is going to swal-
low us up.
When the world shifts right
under our feet, where will we seek
refuge? Where will we stand?
Solid lives, fulfilling lives, are
built and rest upon the solid founda-
tion of our faith in Jesus Christ. It's
only our faith built solidly upon
Christ that can see us through the
day. Even the day we watch our
loved one die, our nation niourn, or
our neighbor ship out to war.
Indeed, it's only Christ who can give
meaning to the storms of life that
threaten to take away all we have
and all we understand. And that's
why he warns us to heed his Word
and build our lives, our church and
our society upon him!
Let us examine our lives,
our faith, our motives, our worship
and our goals. Can we answer
with integrity what or who is our
foundation? Are we on solid
Isn't it time to reset our founda-
tion, and the foundation of our fami-
lies and society on the rock of our
salvation, Jesus Christ?

home tour has it
Celebrate the coming of spring
with a tour of four lovely homes and
pick up creative ideas for your own
digs on the weekend of March 17-18,
when the auxiliary of Micah's Place
presents the 2005 Amelia Island
Home & Garden Tour.
Featured are the homes of Dee
and Nat Phillips, 36 Salt Marsh Drive;
Debbie and Woody Jenkins, 8334
Sanctuary Lane; Ed and Barbara
McGinley, 76 Marsh Creek Road; and
Kathy and Dave Miller, 42 Marsh
Creek Road. Here's a quick preview
of the unique features of each house:
Much of the furniture in the
Phillips home has been handed down
from both sides of the family, and a
table in the foyer is made of remnants
of a large banquet table salvaged
when the home of Nat's parents was
caught in a flood. The kitchen shows
off a most unusual and striking ceiling
of original art work by former local
artist Liza Hass Watt, made of copper
suspended in polyurethane.
Whimsical frogs are found through-
out the house, and the large screened
porch lends access to an unobstruct-
ed view of the marsh.
Every room in the Jenkins home
overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The
dining room walls are padded in lus-
cious raspberry silk fabric, as a back-
ground for carefully chosen antique
Each bedroom is different and spe-
cial, with some holding antique
wardrobes filled with antique cloth-
ing, hats and costumes. Debbie is a
talented seamstress, and enjoys her
state-of-the-art sewing room. There is
a "Theater Room" featuring a vintage
soda fountain bar, a working tele-
iphone booth and a disappearing pro-
jection screen. Other features are a
wine cellar, English garden area and
an "infinity" waterfall pool.
The Miller home, built in 1980, has
been restored and enhanced to take
full advantage of the marsh view. The
master bedroom features an outdoor
access to a spa pool with a waterfall
and garden area. The owners will
have "before" photos displayed so vis-'
itors can better appreciate the amaz-
ing innovative changes made.
So many people who move here
fall in love with something natives
took for granted: tfe beautiful views
afforded by the marsh. The
McGinleys, too, have taken advantage
of its beauty in their New England-
style marsh front property, with a
view of the Intracoastal Waterway --
a very different environment than
their other home in Vermont. A deck
extends across the back of.the house,
along with a dock. Indoors, interest-
ing collectibles of all kinds are show-
cased and scattered throughout, and
the long dining table was once a cigar
table where cigars were rolled and

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25,2005 AROUND TOWN News-Leader
Don't touch that dial!
Iam alive to tell you my latest
adventure thanks to the good
Sisters of Saint Benedict. They
used their rulers on my hus-
band's knuckles until they taught
him not to kill chubby gray-haired
matroqs who have irritated the liv-
ing bejabbers out of him. Thank you,
I have admitted many times that I
am one of those unfortunate elec-
tronically challenged people. Any
device with more than an on/off
switch is yet another mystery of the
universe, as far as I am concerned. I
thought of my long, frustrating his-
tory with gadgets the other night as
I admired all of those colored but-
tons on the remote control for our
television set Andy was busy with
hde Civil Air Patrol at the airport,
parking the airplanes of our Super
Bowl visitors. Now was my chance
to explore all of those buttons, and
at last correct my electronic defi-
To condense the next 45 minutes
into a few sentences, I had, in that
time, entered every one of our most-
watched channels into the favorites
category. Since I was too tired and
sleepy to be witty, I entered a really
easy, boring PIN.
The next morning the Friday
before the Super Bowl, I must note
- I turned on our television, hit 36
for Headline News and provided the
PIN when asked for it "Invalid PIN"
was now plastered across the
screen I had the same result when I
punched up Fox News. And the
History Channel. And every other
channel I had entered into the
favorites program. Only now did I
notice that the icon displayed looked
like a padlock,
rather than a

Curtins out of

not strangle me
on the spot
when I con-
fessed what I
had done. (By the way, confession
may be good for the soul, but it don't
do dip for your marital relations.)
I had already revised my morn-
ing to substitute a visit to the
Comcast office on 14th Street for the
errands I had originally planned to
run. I waited patiently until Lorena
was available at Comcast. She had
dealt with me before and seemed to
find my attempts to, master digital
television amusing. She started smil-
ing when she saw me; I imagine she
thought she was in for a chuckle.
She got more than she bargained for
when I told her, "You have to help
me save my marriage."
I had the undivided attention of
everyone in the Comcast office,
both staff and customers, as I
regaled them with my electronic
adventures, my amateur attempt to
control trons, the night before.
In between guffaws, Lorena
determined our television had a bad
control box; I should have been able
to unlock all of those channels as
easily as I had locked them. She
quickly wrote a work order for a
technician to restore these channels.
The other thing that saved my bacon
(plus other parts of my anatomy)
was that I had not locked us out of
the channel that was to carry the
Lorena looked at me a little
strangely when I asked to borrow
the office telephone at the end of
our negotiations. "You don't think
he'd give me a cell phone, do you?
I'd probably dial Bangladesh by mis-
take and not know how to turn the
silly thing off!" She dialed the num-
ber for me, then passed the receiver
through the small opening in her
service window. When Andrew
growled hello, I quickly explained
that the tech would be at our house
the next morning. I swear his
response of "Very well" sounded
more like "You live."
A very nice young man showed
up the next morning, made our
remote go boop-beep several times,
and left. Our viewing pleasure was
once again unlimited. Shortly after
that young man's departure, I
received my remedial remote con-
trol instruction. It is now indelibly
engraved on my brain: the Curtins

VCR and DVD players. We heed to
adjust the volume. Upon occasion,
we need to hit the pause button on
the VCR or DVD. And we need to
know how to turn everything off.
The rest of those pretty buttons are
just there for decoration.
And Lorena? The last time I saw
her, she had her head cradled in her
arms on her desk. laughing uncon-
trolUably. I have that effect on some

Studies show music makes kids smarter
MARY ANN SALIS
For the News-Leader
Try to imagine a world without
music. There would be no music on
TV, radio, in movies, video games,
on computers, at school' or in
church. Music fills our lives with
beauty., Everyone in the world can
communicate, through the lan-
guage of music since it breaks the
barriers of culture, race, creed, reli-
gion and politics. It is part of our
personal development, expression,
imagination and creativity.
Past research has proven that
music reaches the mentally chal-
lenged, physically disabled, emo-
tionally disturbed, blind, elderly
and especially the young. It is a
means of emphasizing learning
mathematics, social studies, lan-
guage arts, reading, science and
many other skills our young people
study in school daily.
Through a well-planned music
program, children can experience
many positive musical activities
such as playing instruments,
singing, learning music theory/his-
.tory and skills, performing in musi-
cals and acting in dramas.
Today, researchers are proving
that studying music makes kids
smarter. An article published in
Neurological Research finds that a
two-year study of preschoolers pro-
vided interesting results. Psycholo-
gist Dr. Frances Rauscher and

ship to brainpower and academic
achievement in math, science and

ly published an article called
"Sorry, Kids, Piano Lessons Make
You Smarter." In the article it
claims that "new research shows
young students' IQ's rose nearly
three points more than their
untrained peers" after nine months
of piano lessons.
The Musit Educators National
Conference has proclaimed the
month of March as Music In Our
Schools Month (MIOSM). This
year's theme is Music: The Heart
Parents and interested com-
munity citizens are invited to attend
any of the music classes at Callahan

Dale Braddock, principal of Hilliard Middle-Senior
High School has come up with the CAT Car Contest
Braddock, left,, teamed up with Rick Keffer, owner of
Rick Keffer Dodge Chrysler Jeep, to give away a white
1996 Jeep Cherokee to one freshman or sophomore
who greatly improves his or her score on this year's
reading portion of the Florida Comprehensive
"Dale asked me if I could donate a used car to use as
a reward for his students," Keffer said. "I agreed
because I like the concept of setting a goal for the kids
and having a reward for those who attain it. I'm happy
to participate in this program, and I hope it achieves
the desired results."
'Braddock said he hopes offering a coveted reward
will inspire his students to try harder on the FCAT.
After the test scores are in likely on the last day of
school in late May -one freshman and one sophomore
from each level who has most improved his or her
reading test score will have a chance to pick a car key
out of bag. Only one of the keys will start the Cherokee.
The car will go to the student with the matching key.

study sponsored by
the North American
Association for the
Study of Obesity has shown
that a combination of exer-
cise and limiting intake to
less than 1,800 calories per
day is necessary for a sus-"
tained weight reduction.
While crash and fad diets
may lead to a rapid weight
reduction, all too commonly
the weight is gained back
after the diet is stopped.
Co-sponsored by the
Association, the study looked
at a group of 5,000 people
who maintained an average
weight loss of 30 pounds for
six years. Walking was the
most common form of exer-
cise with participants walk-
ing at least a mile a day,
which burns an average of
250 calories per hour of exer-
cise. The Association recom-
mends that people try to
work up to a walking pro-
gram of four miles per day.
Every now and then I see
some guy cruising by on a
Harley out for a weekend
ride, and I think that sure
would be fun. Then I think
back to my days working at
the trauma center and
remember those guys lying
there, torn to pieces from
crashing their bikes, and
decide against the Harley. As
fun as they are, I always feel
that they are just too risky.

Administration. Some have
suggested that this popula-

In fact, the number of deaths
has nearly doubled just over
the last five years. Experts
also point to older riders
either having limited experi-
ence or not having ridden in

with the fact that eyesight
and reflexes are diminishing.
Dogs detect cancer
Everyone is familiar with
the concept of training dogs
to search for drugs. You
show them the drug, teach
them to recognize the smell
and then train them to go
after it and signal once they
have found it. Well, the
results from a British med-
ical journal suggest that dogs
could be used to detect blad-
der cancer as well.
Six dogs underwent a
seven-month training session
to recognize the smell of the
urine of bladder cancer
patients. They were then
given a test, showing them
both "normal urine" and
"cancer urine." The dogs
would then lie down next to
the sample that was from the
cancer patient. The results
showed that the dogs were
three times more likely than

The Fernandina Beach High School cheerleaders collected another national title over the weekend. The varsity squad cap-
tured the World Spirit Federation's cheer and national dance championship trophy during the 2005 Windy City Showdown in
Chicago, Ill., Saturday and Sunday. The Pirate cheerleaders captured first place at the American Grand National
Championships in Las Vegas in December.
Another title for Pirate cheerleaders
A group of Fernandina Beach High School
students have had a lot to cheer about over the
last two months. The Pirate cheerleaders com-
plemented their American Grand National

"Both girls did an excellent job motivating
the team and showing leadership and dedica-

The first day of the competition accounted
for a third of the squad's total score and.
Sunday's score made up two-thirds.
"We had to compete against the score
because we were the only all-girls varsity

Anastasia Myskina, Elena Dementieva
and Nadia Petrova have officially commit-
ted to play in the 26th annual Bausch &
Lomb Championships April 4-10 at Amelia
Myskina, Dementieva and Petrova will
join a competitive field for the 2005 Bausch

includes No. 1 in the world and the 2004
defending champion Lindsay Davenport,
No. 3 in the world and the 2005 Australian
Open winner Serena Williams and No. 8 in
the world and the 2002 Bausch & Lomb
Championships winner Venus Williams.
"Last year's Grand Slams clearly showed
that the young Russian players are a force
on the tour with Myskina winning the
French, Sharapova capturing Wimbledon
and Kuznetsova taking the U.S. Open. Their
style of play is exciting and Myskina,
Dementieva and Petrova will certainly be
ones to watch at this year's Bausch & Lomb
Championships," said tournament direc-
tor, John Arrix.
Myskina, currently ranked No. 5 in the
world, holds nine career singles titles. Last
season was the best of her career as she
captured her first Grand Slam singles title
at Roland Garros. By downing compatriot
Dementieva in two sets, Myskina became
the first Russian Grand Slam singles winner.
I She went on to defend two singles titles at
Doha and Moscow. Her best posting in the
early 2005 season was at Antwerp, where
she was a semifinalist before falling to
Myskina last played at the Bausch &
Lomb Championships in 2002, where she
lost to eventual tournament champion
Venus Williams in the round of 16.
The 2003 Bausch & Lomb Champion-
ships winner, Dementieva, will be making
her sixth consecutive Amelia Island appear-
ance. On the road to her 2003 win at Amelia
Island, she upset top seeds Amanda
Coetzer, Daniela Hantuchova, Justine
Henin-Hardenne and Davenport to become
the tournament's lowest seed (No. 10) to
win the coveted trophy.
Dementieva reached the quarterfinals in
the 2001 and 2002 Bausch & Lomb Cham-
pionships as well. She holds four career
singles titles and is currently ranked No. 7
in the world. She claimed her most recent
singles title in 2004 at Hasselt.
A two-time Bausch & Lomb Champion-
ships semifinalist, Petrova will make her
fifth tournament appearance. In 2001,

bass have been biting in
Lofton Creek during
recent warming spells. He guid-
ed Bill Ham to eight nice bass
while fishing with live shiners
under a small float recently.
"The bass were chasing live
shiners right up to the bank from
deep water and nailing them
right on the surface," Sheets
said. "We only fished the morn-
ing tide but had constant action
the whole morning. We lost a few
bass when they reached the
shoreline snags, but all and all, I
was really impressed with the
bass fishing and looking for a
good spring run of largemouth
during the next few months of
the spawning season."
Capt. Jim Allen reports bass
fishing in Rodman Reservoir is
also picking up.
"This week, we caught and
released a beautiful 10.4-pound
bass and caught from 10-15 bass
per day," he said. "However, our
last trip to Rodman was really a
rod bender. We caught and
released over 15 bass weighing
up to 8.5 pounds."
Rodman Reservoir is current-
ly in a draw down and all bass
have to be released until April 1.

Redfish continue to do well
during the falling tide while fish-
ing with live shrimp under a "
small float. Look for docks that
border oyster bars, creek
mouths or bars to harbor great
redfish action. Mud flats are also
holding schooling reds during
the last of the falling tide.
Sheepshead fishing should be
excellent this weekend at the St.
Marys south jetty rocks during
the last two hours of the falling
tide and the first two hours of the
rising tide. Live fiddler crabs and
barnacles fished along the rocks
are producing sheepshead

Hunt permits available
though license agents
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission will
begin accepting applications for
quota hunt permits and special-
opportunity hunt permits for
next year's hunting seasons
through its Total Licensing
System this summer.
This means hunters will sub-
mit their applications at any one
of the more than 600 license -
agents who sell hunting and fish-
ing licenses, all county tax collec-
tors' offices or from FWC's web-
For the first time since 1975,
hunters will not mail application
forms to Tallahassee to apply for
the quota hunt permits.
"Handling thousands of paper
applications and dealing with
numerous telephone complaints
from hunters who missed ran-
dom drawings because the postal
service took longer than expect-
ed to deliver their applications
was cumbersome and ineffi-
cient," said Eddie White, FWC's
quota hunt coordinator. "We
have been issuing licenses and
permits through the TLS since
2003, and this is a planned pro-
gression to streamline the hunt
permit application process."
Hunters seeking special-
opportunity hunt permits will be
the first to use this new applica-
tion process. Between May 1 and
June 15, hunters will be able to
submit as many $5 special-oppor-
tunity applications as they would
like through license agents,
county tax collectors' offices or
on-line at MyFWC.com. Applica-
tion forms will be available at all
FWC regional offices beginning
"Once the random drawing is
completed, we will send invoices
to successful applicants," White
said. "They then take the invoice
to any license agent, pay a permit
fee by the specified deadline and
walk out with permit in hand. If
one chooses to pay online, deliv-
ery of the permit will take seven
to 10 days."
Hunters seeking quota hunt
permits can apply from June 1-11
at license vendors, county tax
collectors' offices or on-line at
MyFWC.com. Application forms
will be available at all tax collec-
tors' offices and FWC regional
offices beginning May 15. These
forms are still necessary to pro-
vide license agents with hunt
choices, dates and personal infor-
"During this period, you can
submit applications on-line min-
utes before the deadline and
know your application was
accepted," White said. "You will
be able to walk away from a
license agent with a receipt
showing the type of quota appli-
cation you submitted, which
drawing you are in and what
choices you made."
Remaining un-issued quota
permits will be made available
directly from license agents,
county tax collectors' offices and
online at MyFWC.com on a first-
come, first-served basis once the
random drawing has been com-
The first change in the sys-
tem hunters will notice is that
stickers, tabs and photocopies of
licenses are no longer required
with the application. The TLS
will verify that hunters have valid
wildlife management area per-
mits when they apply. If they do
not have the proper license or
permit, they may obtain one
where they apply.
Another major change will be
a closed period between the first
and second phases of the pro-
gram, from June 12 through July
31, during which no applications
will be accepted. The TLS is
expected to drastically reduce
the time hunters have to wait for
the results of the random draw-
"During the next few months
we will be providing more details
about the new process," White
said. "We want hunters to be able
to get as much information about
the changes as possible."
Come celebrate with us March 3, 2005 from 4-7 p.m. at your neighborhood Publix.

Guild, and now, with a profes-
sional-style quilting machine
called a longarm, she finishes
quilts for customers across the
Quilt show chair Janet
Sebastian, on the other hand,
got into quilting early in life
because her mother and four
sisters "sewed and quilted all
my life," she says. She joined
the quilt guild in 1996, and
that's when she became a "real
quilter," Sebastian says'.
Now she makes three or
four quilts each year, and gives
them all away. "I hosted a live-in
Thai exchange student here,
and sent her home with a pur-
ple quilt. Purple is her favorite
color," Sebastian explains.
She has been an air traffic
controller with the Federal
Aviation Administration for 16
years, and with the Army for
four years before that. "I joined
the service," she says, "because
I didn't want to go to college
and I didn't want to stay home."
She remembers to this day
the advice her dad gave to her
about deciding on a future
career. "He told me to pick out
jobs, see how much they paid,
and then consider a career in
the field that paid best and
attracted most So I did," she
says. "That's how I wound up as
an air traffic controller." Her
dad, she says, had been in the
Army for 20 years.
She married within her'
profession, and her husband is
now two years closer to retire-
ment than she is. "He had been
in the service, too, and he now
controls traffic where we start-
ed out over Fort Rucker, Ala.,"
But there is another benefit
to her marriage, the mother of
two says. "My husband does
everything around the house,
so I have time for my hobbies."
Besides quilting, another of
her hobbies is woodworking,
and in the garage, lumber is
At their "other" house in
Jacksonville, which she
recently renovated, Sebastian
says she tore out the cabinets
and built maple cabinets in their
place, "but there are no doors
on them yet," she says, laugh-
Sebastian, who is helped by
quilt show co-chair Helen
Zercher, says, "We've got quite
a group of interesting people in
our Amelia Island Quilt Guild,
and we're all looking forward to
our every-three-years Amelia
Island Quilt Guild Quilt Show."

For that matter, Helen has a
mother as well as a grandmother,
and her mother, Myrtle, is played
with taste and sympathy by
Cicely Tyson. It is impossible that
Grandma could have given life to
such gentle and civilized women
as Myrtle and Helen. The math
doesn't work, either. We learn
that Myrtle was 39 when Helen
was born, and that makes
Grandma about 85, which is too
old to operate a chainsaw.

Raise Your Voice
(PG, 103 m., 2004)
Hilary Duff is described by
another character as "like some
kind of retro Brady Buncher," and
that's so true it hurts, in this dumb
formula movie about a music stu-
dent who suffers a tragedy, and
Without the interruptions by
Grandma Madea, the movie
would be about Helen as a shat-
tered woman who (1) tells the
judge Charles can keep all his
assets, because she doesn't want
a penny; (2) goes to work as a
waitress; and (3) is courted by
the handsome Orlando, who is
kind, understanding, sincere and
knows how to listen to women.
No. 1 is impossible, because no
judge is going to let a wife aban-
doned by an adulterer after 18
years walk away without a penny,
but never mind. Does Helen find
happiness with Orlando?
Not so fast. The movie has a
really good I am for you until I
die. I never loved my parents
until they died."
Tim, .who looks uncannily like
Leonardo DiCaprio's younger
brother, is dating a girl at school
named Steph. She thinks they
may be ready for sex.
"Steph told me she loves me,"
he tells his mother.
"Well, do you love her?" she
"I don't know."
"Then you don't."
The relationship between
Sandy and her son is the heart of
the movie, and works, and
Sandy's character on her own is
an unfolding fascination. Who
else could get busted for pot
wants to go to music camp to
rebuild her life, and dad (David
Keith) who doesn't want her to
go, she and her mom (Rita
Wilson) and Aunt Nina (Rebecca
De Mornay) play a trick on Dad,
and she meets a nice guy at
camp and is inspired by a great
teacher. Rating: *

Christian agenda, which is fine
with me, if only it had been
applied in a believable way. After
melodramatic events occur in the
life of the evil Charles, Helen gets
the opportunity to practice the
virtues of forgiveness and
redemption, at the cost of her
own happiness. We hate Charles
so much that it's impossible to
feel sorry for him, or believe in
his miraculous recovery in body
or reformation of character. It just
doesn't play especially while
Helen keeps poor Orlando in the
dark about her true feelings, for
no better reason than to generate
phony romantic suspense.
quite the way she does? And who
else would say to her would-be
drug dealer, "Your parents should
be ashamed of you." It was a wise
decision for Dan Harris, the
writer-director, to avoid getting
bogged down in the legal after-
math of the arrest; the point, for
the story the movie wants to tell,
is that she felt an urgent need to
get high, and behaved more like
a kid than like a prudent adult.
Dan Harris is a kid himself,
only 22 when he sent this screen-
play to Bryan Singer, director of
"X-Men" and (more to the point)
"Apt Pupil" and "The Usual
Suspects." Singer liked it, hired
Harris to work on the screenplay
for "X-2," and then the new
Superman movie Singer is direct-
ing, and after that "Logan's Run."
Then Harris came back at 24 to
direct his own screenplay.
I can see what Singer saw in it-
a sensitivity to characters, an
instinct for the revealing, unpre-
dictable gesture, and good dia-
logue. I think I see a little too
much more besides. The film
might have been stronger as sim-
ply the story of the family trying
to heal itself after its tragedy, with
At the end of the film, Orlando
makes a comeback that demon-
strates he has carefully studied
"An Officer and Gentleman," but
before then we have had one
emotionally implausible scene
after another involving Charles
and Helen, interrupted by period-
ic raids by the Grandma Madea
action figure, who brings the
movie to a halt every time she
appears. She seems like an inva-
sion from another movie. A very
bad another movie. I've been
reviewing movies for a long time,
and I can't think of one that more
dramatically shoots itself in the
the focus on Sandy and Tim. But
Harris feels a need to explain
everything in terms of melodra-
matic revelations. and surprise
developments, right up until the
closing scenes. The emotional
power of the last act is weakened
by the flood of new information.
The key revelation right at the
end explains a lot, yes, but it
comes so late that all it can do is
explain. If it had come earlier, it
would have had to be dealt with,
and those scenes might have
I haven't gone into detail
about Marge (Deirdre O'Con-
nell), the neighbor, or her son,
Kyle Dwyer (Ryan Donowho),
Tim's best friend. Marge never
worked for me except as a plot
convenience, and Tim's friend-
ship with Kyle, while it produces
some risky and effective scenes,
is best left for you to discover.
What remains when the movie is
over is the memory of Sandy and
Tim talking, and of a mother who
loves her son, understands him,
and understands herself in a wry
but realistic way. The characters
deserve a better movie, but they
get a pretty good one.
