Proposed law targets sex commerce


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
A few hours after demon-
strators began protesting the
new Adam & Eve shop in
O'Neil, Nassau County com-
missioners were handed a draft
county ordinance that would
require sexually oriented busi-
nesses to be licensed, located at
least 750 feet from any school or
church and county-inspected.
County Attorney Michael
Mullin presented the 44-page
draft law to commissioners
Monday night after three
months of hearings and study.
Commissioners unanimously
decided to set a public hearing
on it for March 28 at 7 p.m. in
the County Building, 86026
Pages Dairy Road, Yulee.
The draft ordinance requires
licensing for sexually oriented
businesses and their employ-
ees and sets rules for their loca-
tion, operation, signage and
activities. Under the draft ordi-
nance, sexually oriented busi-
nesses include adult bookstores
or adult video stores, adult
cabarets, adult motels, adult
motion picture theaters, semi-


nude model studios, sexual
device shops and "sexual
encounter centers."
Such businesses are to be at
least 750 feet from each other or
any business licensed to serve
alcohol. They would also have
to be at least 750 feet from a
"church, house of worship, pub-
lic or private elementary or sec-
ondary school, kindergarten,
licensed day-care center, or any
residence."
Sexually oriented businesses
will not be allowed to sell alco-
hol or to allow patrons to drink
alcohol inside. There is no nudi-
ty allowed in these businesses,
regardless of whether it is
"expressive in nature." Anyone
who is "semi-nude" must
remain at least six feet from a
customer and on a stage at least
a foot and a half high in a room
of at least 1,000 square feet;
These entertainers may not
touch customers.

lations take place would be a

Congressman Ander Crenshaw, above, talks to Lt. Governor
Toni Jennings at the 16th Annual Lincoln Day Dinner Friday
night at the Amelia Island Plantation. Ed Gandy. below, imme-
diate past chairman of the Nassau County Republican Party,
offers thanks after he and his wife, Margie, were honored for
their years of work for the party.


Nassau County Republicans
enjoyed a spirited Lincoln Day
Dinner Friday where the watch-
word was vigilance and state lead-
ers outlined upcoming initiatives
- including raising teachers' start-
ing salaries to $35,000 and amend-
ing the class size reduction law.
The event also was an oppor-
tunity to honor one of their own,
Ed Gandy, immediate past chair-
man of the Nassau County
Republican Party who was cred-
ited Friday for turning what was
once a backwater for the GOP
into a stronghold for the party.
"Nassau County now has gone
from no elected Republicans to
everybody elected Republican,"
said Florida Lt. Governor Toni
Jennings, guest speaker at the
dinner held at the Amelia Island
Plantation.
"We couldn't have done it with-
out the help of wonderful grass-
roots people," said Jennings.
"Florida delivered. They delivered
for the president... It couldn't
have happened without the people
sitting in this room," she said,
specifically mentioning Gandy, for-
mer state legislator Marilyn
Evans-Jones and U.S.
Congressman Ander Crenshaw,
who were Republicans when it
was more popular to be a
Democrat.
"It's not that long ago. I share
that with you to remind you it
wasn't always this way and that
things can turn quickly" if
Republicans don't energize for the
next election and remain vigilant
day to day, Jennings said.
"There is still much to do,
especially in education," she said,
outlining an initiative to amend


the class size
reduction law.
and use the sav-
ings to increase
teachers' start-
ing salaries from
$30,000 to
$35,000.
Jennings "It will be
bc i ,-,n t _ir bal-
eI. and nd w ill
need your help to pass it." said
Jennings. adding that there also
are plans to introduce differential
pay for those who teach math or
science or work in a tough school.
'There will be lots of people
who don't like that most are in
the teachers union but it is the
right thing to do," she said.
Jennings said class size man-
dates would still have to be met,
but on a district level, not class
by class.
Another tough fiiht during the
upcoming legislative session will
be passing a bill to guarantee
nutrition and hydration for inca-
pacitated patients whi d. not have
a living will to outline their wish-
es, said state Senator Steve Wise,
nimaster of :errrmonies for the
evening. House Bill 701 was
prompted by the Terri Schiavo
case. Schiavo is a brain-damaged
Tanipa wonian at the center of a
legal battle between her parents
and husband over whether to end
her feeding.
"It used to be 'It's the economy
stupid." said Wise. "It's not. It's
moials, stupid... The battle we
are going to have, believe it or
not, is over Terri Schiavo. If we
don't believe in life and'we let that
go, then what we have done is we
have missed the boat. The

impact


fee for


schools?

KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
The Nassau County School
Board has recommended a $3,726
school impact fee for every new
home built in the future.
The board unanimously
approved a resolution Thursday
that uses a recent school capacity
study that showed student popula-
tion growth outstripping the abili-
ty of the county to build new
schools to meet demand.
The resolution is now being
referred to Nassau County
Commissioners to consider it for
county law. If an ordinance is draft-
ed and passed, it will be added to
existing impact fees when a
prospective builder pulls a permit
to build a structure.
In unincorporated areas of East
Nassau County, its passage as stat-
ed would bring total impact fees
per single-family stand-alone house
to $6,210 from the previous fee of
$2,484. That amount includes exist-
ing transportation, fire, emergency
services, administrative, police and
recreational impact fees.

tax increases, but with the demand
that we're going to have, to main-

Lifetime acquaintances,

LOIS WINKLER
For the News-Leader
Myrtle Hall said she was not doing much more
than working the Sunday crossword puzzle. Come
right over, and she and her friend Jane Phillips
would tell about their lifelong acquaintance.
Myrtle Cameron Hall was from Waycross, Ga.,
and her husband Lowell from Statesboro, Ga.
Parts of the two families were neighbors in
Waycross.
Jane Garrett Phillips was born in Swainsboro,
Ga., north of there. The Halls and Garretts were
distant cousins. Years later, they'd meet down
south in what was then called Fernandina, Florida,


iany hurry
or Amelia City, to be precise, on the south end of
the island.
After Myrtle and L.L. Hall married, they joined
the Fernandina shrimping enclave that had settled
in Brownsville, Texas. For those whose skills
were sharpened in Fernandina waters, the shell-
fish trade was profitable in Campeche Bay,
Mexico. Myrtle enjoyed visits to Matamoros, the
colorful market over the border. When they
returned, they settled on Manucy Road and
opened a corner store in Amelia City.
Meanwhile, Jane married Eber Phillips, one of
the families of early Jacksonville settlers. For a

ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
March is "Save Your Vision
Month," a good time to make an
appointment for a visual check-
up, which should take place
every two years or so for most
people, and more often when a
problem is present. And while
there are a number of condi-
tions that can be discovered
during a optical examination
and then treated, we are going
S to focus on two of the most
common that, left untreated,
can lead to blindness or greatly
compromised vision.
The first, glaucoma, is an
eye disease in which the inter-
nal pressure in the eyes increas-
es enough to damage the optic
nerve fibers and cause vision
loss. There is no pain involved,
and usually it is advanced
before the victim realizes that
he or she is losing peripheral
(side) vision or that the world is
beginning to look blurry.
Unfortunately, whatever vision
has been lost is lost forever. But
further deterioration can be
halted or slowed in 90 percent
of those who get treatment.
Although it is rare in chil-
dren, it can occur at any age,
but usually its victims are over
40 years old. It is six to eight
times more common in African-
Americans than in Caucasians,
and people who are nearsighted
or diabetic are at higher risk.
Cataracts are another com-
mon condition that can impair
vision, and may eventually
cause blindness. However,
unlike glaucoma, delay in treat-
ment does not cause permanent
loss of vision. Removal can be
delayed until stronger eyeglass-
es and better lighting don't suf-
fice.
SWhile most cases are related
to aging, scientists suspect that

----- smoking,
A excessive
R ~sunlight,
-- -' high cho-
lesterol lev-
1 els and dia-
.. betes are
also risk
factors. For example, pack-a-day
smokers are twice as likely to
develop cataracts compared to
people who have never smoked.
, The cloudy vision is caused
by a chemical change within the
eye, and when it becomes a
problem, the lens, which has
developed an opaqueness, is
surgically removed in an outpa-
tient procedure and replaced
with a clear, man-made lens.
Ninety-five percent of those
who have the surgery see a
great improvement in their
vision immediately.
Vitamins C and E may help
educe the risk of cataracts.
Eating five servings of fruits
and vegetables each day can
provide more than 100 mil-
ligrams of vitamin C. Eating two
servings of nuts and seeds can
provide eight to 14 milligrams
of vitamin E. However, accord-
ing to the American Optometric
Association, you must eat a
much higher amount of these
foods in order to get enough
antioxidants to decrease the
risk of cataracts. Most
Americans don't even consume
the recommended average daily
intake.
There are a number of vita-
min supplements on the market
that are formulated with lutein,
vitamins C, E and other nutri-
ents especially beneficial to eye-
sight, and you may wish to have
your optometrist or ophthalmol-
ogist recommend one if you are
in a high-risk group.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2,2005 NEWS News-Leader


FAMILY Continued from 1A
while, he forested and she taught
school in Hilliard. In the 1950s,
she telemarketed their busi-
ness,Personality Home Portraits:
They were under no obligation to
,buy, she would say of family por-
traits her husband took in sub-
jects' homes. A large trailer was
first the darkroom for the cam-
era shop on Centre Street, and
then home for Jane in Cherry
Point, N.C., while he was a Marine
during the Korean War. They
returned to settle Phillips Manor
Road and run a campground,
among other businesses.
The ladies met when Jane was
a customer at Myrtle's store, an
old-fashioned convenience store,
except that Myrtle ordered what
people wanted. Myrtle observed
much from that store. She
describes a friendly neighborhood
where children and dogs roamed
the whole area. Children met the
school bus in front of her store
with dogs on their heels. Dogs
would come back to meet them
in the afternoon, or occasionally
sleep there all day.
Says Jane, "Can you believe
there was only one bus on the
route from Five Points to Scott
Road down North Fletcher and
on to the schools, and this was
grades 1 through 12? The Sandbar
Restaurant i ,J\ii Gerbing Road
on the river) was the only place to
go in Fernandina. Jacksn\ville
people liked it, too, because it was
one of the early seafood restau-
rants. Of course, we had only the
two drawbridges on this island."
They describe a paradisiacal
place for children to grow up play-
ing in deep woods for hours and
riding bikes without a car in sight.
Friends since they were little,
namesakes Lowell Hall and Jane
Phillips had raccoons. Jane's rac-
coon Rocky was a rescued baby.
Lowell found his raccoon, Bandit,
in the river. Rocky and Bandit
went for walks on leashes.
Sensing distraction, the families
sent the children in opposite direc-
tions to FSU and UF in hopes of
academic success. Love con-
quered that problem and they
married. Now they've long since
divorced and happily married oth-
ers, but the legacy of that child-
hood romance lives on. Myrtle
Hall and Jane Phillips have a com-
mon grandchild in Garrett Hall,
born in 1970, and a common
great-grandchild in Riley Hall,
born in 1996.
There is a business legacy, as
well. The Halls missed the oppor-
tunity the first time to purchase
the land on the corner of what is
now Sadler and South Fletchber.i -
Meyss'&ywa i_ t corpa4trd9ttes
1947 until the Halls purchased'it
in 1978. The first Hall's was L.L.'s
tobacco shop and newsstand on


Centre Street, the second was
Myrtle's, where Flash Foods in
Amelia City is now, and the third
still stands at the beach in the
care of Lowell Hall Jr. and his
wife.
Eber Phillips' enterprises are
in good care, also, with his daugh-
ter Jane Phillips Collins and her
husband managing the Phillips
Forest Farms timber operations in
Hilliard. She has her father's
interest in photography, too, along
with his frenetic energy for busi-
ness, working both as Realtor and
as bookkeeper for her husband's
business.
Older traces remain. West of
the intersection of ALA and what
is now called Amelia Parkway at
Gerbing Road is a cemetery
where Halls and Phillips are
buried together. "Mr. Gerbing
established this for the people of
Amelia City," explains Jane
Phillips. "I always thought I would
go back to Swainsboro, until Eber
died. Once we buried him here, I
wanted to be with him." She refers
to her son, Eber, Jr. In 1983, her
son was in Tallahassee waiting to
start school when a car driven by
a drunk driver killed him.
Myrtle's 19-year-old grand-
daughter, Ginger, is buried there,
also. She had just started her new
life and job in Jacksonville when
the fatal accident occurred.
Eber, Sr. and Lowell, Sr. are
buried there, and a places are
ready for Jane and Myrtle, when
they are.
They seem not to be in any
hurry. Wit, cell phones, e-mail,
cars, newspapers, children, grand-
children, clubs, church, friends,
Jane and Myrtle are as busy now
as they were 50 years ago. They
thought it was a good idea to start
calling to check on one another
each night, but then they decided
not to. "Ifs not time for that yet,",
said Myrtle.


SEX Continued from 1A
of six months in jail for each.
Sexually oriented business
license fees are to be $250 and $250
for annual renewal.
Although not mentioned by
name, Adam & Eve, a new busi-
ness that sells adult videos as well
as lingerie and adult novelties,
could be given a year to comply
with the law if the ordinance is
approved and if it is found to apply.
When applying for a business
or employee license, applicants
would have to indicate whether
they have been convicted of "a spec-
ified criminal activity as defined in
this ordinance," and whether they
have had anything to do with
another sexually oriented business
that has been declared a nuisance
or ordered closed by a court.
If granted, the one-year license
is to be posted in the business.
While licensed, a sexually oriented
business may be inspected by the
county any time the business is
open.
The application fee for an
employee license is to be $50 and
$25 for annual renewal. Licensed
employees will be provided with a
card they can carry that indicates
their license is valid.
The county may suspend a sex-
ually oriented business license if a
business owner has "knowingly vio-
lated this ordinance or has know-
ingly allowed an employee to violate
this ordinance."
License may be revoked if vio-
lations continue within 12 months
of a suspension. Violations include
giving false information on the
license application, sale or posses-
sion of controlled substances on
the premises, prostitution on the
premises, operating the business
during a suspension or allowing
any sexual activity to take place
there. A revocation of a license is to
- last for one year.


A business owner can appeal
this action before the county com-
missioners.
The ordinance also includes the
establishment of an employee who
is to monitor all activity in the busi-
ness, with the exception of its rest-
room.
The business owner is to submit
a diagram to the county describ-
ing how all interior space in the
business is to be used. The busi-
nesses must be well lighted.
Conspicuous signs on the wall
are to remind patrons ".. that the
occupancy of viewing rooms
is limited to one person; that
sexual activity on the premises is
prohibited; that the making of
openings between viewing rooms
is prohibited and that violators
will be required to leave the prem-
ises."
"No loitering" signs are to be
posted outside such businesses and
there are to be no fences or walls
shielding their parking lots from
the street.
If the county fails to take an
action regarding a sexually orient-
ed business application "within a
prescribed time," the license is to
be deemed granted.
Mullin noted that the ordinance
also contains zoning-specific seg-
ments and asked for the commis-
sion to direct the county's growth
management department to draft
new zoning ordinances in concert
with his efforts. Commissioners
gave that direction unanimously as
well.
The Planning and Zoning Board
is to review zoning changes reflect-
ing the sexually oriented business
ordinance on April 5 at 7 p.m.
Commissioners are to review that
board's recommendations April 25.

School board urges


pornography limits


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader

The Nassau County School
Board passed a resolution
Thursday encouraging local gov-
ernment to regulate the sale of
pornographic materials.
The unanimously approved
resolution serves as encourage-
ment from the school board to
Nassau County Commissioners
to "police pornography in Nassau
County."
Further, the resolution acts as
the school board's efforts to
urge county lawmakers to bar the
sale of pornographic materials
within 1,000 feet of any public
school.
The resolution was initiated in
January at the behest of board
member Janet Adkins. She said
she hoped it would restrict adult
businesses from locating near pri-
vate schools as well as public,
which is specified in the school
board resolution.
"I would hope the commis-
sioners would expand that to
include any school pre-
school, private school, etc.,"
Adkins said.
The resolution's preparation
paralleled the authoring of an ordi-
nance regulating adult-oriented
businesses at the county level,
itself a reaction to the appearance
of Adam & Eve, a new business
that sells adult movies as well as


novelties and lingerie. The store
opened Feb. 5.
"It's a statement of the school
board's values," Adkins said of the
school board's resolution. "I think
that community values shape our
students and their lives," Adkins
said. "I think it's important that
we as a school board weigh in on
this issue."
The school board's resolution,
however, is not directed toward
Adam & Eve, Adkins said.
"It's not aimed at any particu-
lar firm and is generic in its basis,"
Adkins noted.
Through the resolution, the
school board declared that it is
"aware that human sexuality is
God-given, an integral part of
being human at its core. The
result of abstinence outside of
marriage and fidelity within mar-
riage is a lifetime of joy, content-
ment, and love. The Nassau
County School Board has consis-
tently supported and encouraged
sexual abstinence outside of mar-
riage and fidelity, love and mutu-
al respect within marriage."
Adkins said she thinks the
school board should also take a
look at Florida laws on the prox-
imity restrictions between schools
and adult businesses.
'This resolution deals with the
county," she said. "However, I
would be in favor of expanding
this to a state level as well."

Get smart about saving money


There are plenty of ways to
achieve the goal of saving more
money, but the key is to establish
a savings plan and stay committed.
Here are some simple savings
strategies recommended by the
Florida Institute of Certified Public
Accountants:
Establish a goal. The key to
saving is to have a goal. Whether
it's a comfortable retirement, your
child's college education or a new
car, when striving toward some-
thing specific, you're more likely
to reach your target. Set a specif-
ic dollar amount and time frame.
Spend less. Systematically
reducing your spending will
increase the amount you have
available to save. If you don't know
where your money goes, tracking
spending can help. Then look for
ways to cut back and free up extra
money for savings.
Pay yourself first. People
have a tendency to pay all their
bills first and save whatever is left
over. The trouble is there is sel-
dom anything remaining. Next
month, before you pay the elec-
tric bill, "pay" a pre-determined
amount to your savings account
Make it automatic. A good


way to put saving first is to arrange
for your employer to automatical-
ly deduct a certain sum from your
paycheck and deposit it directly
to a savings or investment account
Another option is to establish an
account with a mutual fund and
arrange for an automatic transfer
from your checking or savings
account into the fund.
Bank your raise. Next time
you get a raise, before you get
used to living on a higher salary,
put in place a plan for directing
the extra money to your savings
program. Follow the same strate-
gy for bonuses you receive.
Keep making payments.
When you finish paying off a large
loan or a major expense, such as
a car or your child's college tuition
bill, keep making the payments -
only now direct them to your sav-
ings or investment account.
Bank your refund. If you're
expecting a refund check from the
IRS, avoid the temptation to spend
it by having it deposited directly to
your savings account. Better yet,
adjust your W-4 statement so you
don't 'get a big tax refund. Save
the "raise" in your paycheck via an
automatic saving plan.


Bank "extra" paychecks.
Depending on whether you get
paid weekly or bi-weekly, you
probably set up your budget based
on getting two or four paychecks
a month. Several times a year,
when there's an extra paycheck
in the month, direct the entire
check to your savings account.
Deposit "found money."
Whether it's a birthday gift of
cash, a dividend check or an insur-
ance reimbursement, banking
unexpected windfalls builds your
savings account balance.
Pay yourself back. If you're
forced to dip into your savings for
an emergency, treat it as a loan.
Set up a repayment schedule for
paying the borrowed sum back as
quickly as possible.
Contribute the maximum to
your 401(k). If you participate in
an employer-sponsored retirement
plan, try increasing your contri-
bution. You probably won't miss
the money and if your contribu-
tion qualifies for an employer
match, you'll be getting more
"free" money. If your company
doesn't offer a qualified retirement
plan, set up and contribute to an
IRA instead.

f you are within an earshot of
public education, you know it
is time for the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test, more commonly known by
the acronym FCAT.
It would be appropriate to
describe the preparation, mood,
and frantic days leading up to the
standardized tests as "Fearful
Children and Teachers," a syn-
onym for the FCAT acronym.
The tests are administered each
spring for many of the elemen-
tary, middle school and high
school grades in public schools.
Lefs face it, education is big
business. Unless a state can boast
a public school system that
stacks up with the elite such as
Minnesota, it can be labeled with
an asterisk of negativity in those
articles and listings about the
best places to live, work and raise
a family.
In state-by-state comparisons,
Florida's public schools had regu-
larly ranked lower than what leg-
islators desired in terms of edu-
cating students. Hence, the
reason for standardized tests to
chart a student's progression.
Teachers, as well as school
principals, get nervous when the
FCAT arrives. Teachers are grad-


ed by how
well their stu-
dents per-
form, as is a
principal for
ST how the
schoolfares.
You can see
the signs
prominently
displayed out
Steve front of some
Nicklas local "A-rated
schools" in
STEVE'S the area.
(There are no
MARK=T F-rated, or
PLACE failing,
schools in
Nassau County, although there is
such a thing.)
Tensions surrounding the
FCAT are highest for students. In
your sophomore year of high
school, for instance, a student
must pass the FCAT or face the
burden of having to take remedi-
al-type classes until he or she can
pass the test before graduating.
FCATs consist of the mandato-
ry skills of reading, writing, arith-
metic and science. To prepare,
there are websites and books and
computer programs. An unfortu-
nate side effect of the FCAT is

that teachers feel compelled to
teach the test. In other words,
they spend weeks preparing stu-
dents for the FCAT by drilling
them on problems and situations
they might face at test time.
This is probably not what leg-
islators intended when they con-
cocted the FCAT. You would
think that if the tests were appro-
priate and accurate, the day-to-
day teachings in a normal class-
room would more than prepare
students for these supposed
basic-level exams.
Apparently this is not so. Or
so you would be led to believe,
since the rigors and stress forced
on students would not be neces-
sary if they were already pre-
pared by the normal school cur-
riculum. Some schools even host
Nascar-like events leading up to
the tests to relieve pre-test anxi-
ety.
This begs an important ques-
tion, however- What are students
being taught during non-FCAT
studies, if it is not in-line with the
test material? You see, the FCAT
is derived from educational stud-
ies and from similar exams in
other states. This is information
that students are expected to
know and comprehend at various
points in the learning curve, or at
least our state legislators believe.
So why the mad rush heading
into FCAT?
The pre-test demands are so
real that students exhibit guilt
and dread about being promoted,
or being labeled. This starts in
the early grades of elementary
school.
The fear is real, tangible. In
fact, students have their own
humorous, but poignant, name
for the FCAT. It is an acronym in
its own right: "Florida Child
Abuse Tests."

adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.

Amelia Island Carriages, which
operates a horse-drawn carriage
in downtown Fernandina Beach,
has relocated.
The "hack stand" is now locat-
ed in the non-surfaced area on the
west side of Second Street south of
the park across the street from
City Hall.
The area will be available from
2 p.m. to midnight, and signs will
be erected to inform the public,
City Manager Bob Mearns wrote
city commissioners. Additional
lighting will be installed, he said.
The city acted after receiving
"complaints of odor problems
directly related to the tationary
positioning of houses on South
Second Street," Mearns wrote. "In
response to this nuisance, the city
applied lime to the area to neu-
tralize the odor and had it washed
away by fire hoses."
City code authorizes the city
manager to determine where
"hack stands" may be located.
Cyndi 9lyers and Bob Zaleski
operate Amelia Island Carriages.
The pair offer their knowledge,
humor and love of this area during
a horse-drawn carriage ride. In
addition to daily tours, horse-drawn
carriage rides are also available
for weddings, birthdays and special
events.
The business provides a white

Manpower Inc. and AARP have
announced they have joined forces
in the Featured Employers
Program, a new initiative that will
enhance the role of Americans
aged 50-plus in the workforce.
By 2010, almost one in three
workers will be at least 50 years of
age. As the baby boomer genera-
tion approaches retirement age,
the pool of replacement workers is
not expected to be large enough to
meet employers' labor demands.
At the same time, those in their
50s, 60s and beyond are increas-
ingly not ready to settle into a tra-
ditional retirement lifestyle that
does not include workAs an AARP
"featured employer," Manpower
will address all of these issues with
a program of recruiting, hiring and
retaining mature workers.
We are thrilled to make a for-
mal connection through the AARP
Featured Employers program. To-
gether, we will reinvent retirement
the way mature workers want it -
with a choice of flexible job op-
tions," said Melanie Holmes, sen-
ior vice president for Manpower
Inc.
The Featured Employers
Program is part of AARP
Foundation's workforce initiative.
The goal is to connect mature

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2.2005/NEWS-LEADER


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Hidden agenda?
Citizens of Fernandina Beach,
take a close look at the city com-
mission giving $500,000 of your
money to the Amelia Arts Centre
over the next 10 years and you
might just see a hidden agenda.
This is also a move to help the
First Baptist Church sell its down-
town property. The church building
and related offices and classroom
space were designed to be a church
and are not really suited for any-
thing else. Therefore, it is an
extremely difficult property to sell,
especially with a $3 million price
tag. (The art center web page
admits it will require another $1.5
million in renovations.)
So the city is coming to the res-
cue with taxpayers' money. Arts
center supporters argue that
because the money will be used
for operating expenses it is not a
subsidy to buy the First Baptist
Church buildings. It most certainly
is.
An anonymous donor will pro-
vide $750,000 towards the purchase
of the First Baptist Church build-
ings but only on the condition that
the city provides 10 years of oper-
ating expenses at $50,000 per year.
Do the math, or rather the logic:
If the arts center group gets
$500,000 of taxpayers' money, then
it also gets $750,000 from an anony-
mous donor.
If it gets $750,000 from an
anonymous donor, that moneywill
be used towards the purchase of
the First Baptist Church buildings.
Therefore: If the arts center
group gets $500,000 of taxpayers


money, then the $750,000 from the
anonymous donor will be used
towards the purchase of the First
Baptist Church buildings.
Regardless of what supporters
say, it is quite clear that the city
will be providing taxpayers' money
to subsidize the purchase of the
First Baptist Church if not directly,
then indirectly.
Within the last few years the
Methodist Church raised money
to purchase and preserve a down-
town building, the First
Presbyterian Church raised money
to purchase the Waas Drug Store
and transform it into a youth center
(which is open to all youths and is
a benefit to the community) and
the Episcopal Church raised money
to add beautiful buildings to its
property. (The Episcopal Church
also serves the community by pro-
viding space for musical events and
its classrooms for the NICE com-
munity education program.)
These churches did not get any
financial assistance from the city, so
why should the city subsidize the
purchase of Baptist church build-'
ings with taxpayers' money '
No matter what arts center sup-
porters or city commissioners say,
this is not a civic auditorium. The
property will not belong to the city,
it will belong to a private group that
will charge for its use.
Initially, the most obvious issue
was the city commissioners giving
taxpayers' money to one arts group
to the exclusion of all the others,
which is blatantly unfair. But the
hidden agenda is the commission's
desire to help the Baptist Church
sell off its downtown buildings. So

this is really not only an arts com-

is misappropriation of public funds.
Aren't there better things this city
could spend your money on than
subsidizing purchase of the First
Baptist Church?

WhataboutGod's
creation?
I am amused week after week as
I read the back and forth concern-
ing the Adam & Eve sex shop
debate. What really concerns me
though, is that our religious socie-
ty is narrowly focused on only a
couple of issues that they deem
sinful but are noticeably silent on
other issues. How about a little reli-
gious fervor over the destruction of
God's creation taking place under
our noses?
Being a native to the island and
having generations of family roots
here, I am particularly saddened
by the complete "selling out" to
developers As I look around, it is
painfully obvious that every parcel
of land will continue to be crowded
rooftops, high rises, strip malls and
pavement. Term after term, our
elected officials who are supposed
to be protecting our interests and
quality of life are obviously only
looking out for their own interests
and ambitions. It is for certain you
cannot stop development but you
should try to plan and control it
Just look at the development

cleared is completely stripped of
all vegetation. There had ben 'a
prior suggestion of an ". erilay' pro-
posal" that was supposed to have
allowed minimum buffers along"
AIA but this was overturned by
county commissioners. And now,
we hear that the sensitive ecology
of Talbot Island is slated for devel-
opment and multiple boat slips.
Historical areas in Amelia City are
being considered for rezoning to
allow for high rises. Most coastal
areas are being sold out to allow
development of "view blocking"
high rises and condos.
It doesn't take much imagina-
tion to peer into the near future and
see nothing but the likes of over-
crowded South Florida all around
us. Taxes will continue to rise while
quality of life declines. What is real-
ly disturbing is the deafening
silence about all of this!

Proud to be
a Christian
I have just finished reading
"Born Sinners" (Voice of the


People, Feb. 23), and I must say
that I do not believe the writer took
the time to read "Lost Soul" (Voice
of the People, Feb. 16).
If she had she would have read
the part where the writer had writ-
ten the following, "No, I am not
judging you; I am stating the facts
as I read them." Because, you see
that writer was not judging the
writer of "Eyes are opened" (Voice
of the People, Feb. 9). You say that
you "truly felt embarrassed by her
comments." But, yet you don't say
anything about being embarrassed
about what was wrote in "Eyes are
opened" referring to Christians hav-
ing a Nazi-like behavior.
Yes, maybe she could have writ-
ten the phrase of, "But I assure you
that I will keep you in my prayers,
and that I will prayfor Satan not to
obtain your soul, because you are
truly a lost soul. Furthermore, I
am proud to be a Christian, and I
am proud to have Christ as my
Savior." Maybe it could have been
worded something to the effect of,
"But I assure you that I will keep
you in my prayers, and that I will
pray for Satan not to obtain your
soul and keep it, so that one day you


now only
140!


will walk through the pearly gates
of Heaven. Furthermore, I am
proud to be a Christian, and I am
proud to have Christ as my Savior."
But in no way do I feel that she was
judging him.
Yes, as Christians we do accept
anyone who is willing to try to bet-
ter their lives, but we also accept
people even when they are not Yes,
we are all born sinners, but we do
have the choice of living a Christian
life, or living an un-godly life. Just
because there are hypocrites out
there does not mean that people
have to have a bad taste in their
mouth for Christians as you stat,
ed. Because, most of us Christians
would give the shirt off of our back
for someone in need whether they
are fellow Christians or not
You see, I also feel the same
way the writer of "Lost Soul" felt. I
cannot figure out what the writer of
"Eyes are opened" got so upset
about where Christians are con-
cerned that would make .him turn
his back on his church, and why he
would state that "Christ is not the
answer, Christ is the question."

Pirates on the Run
You might have thought Ryder Leary was car-
rying a football and sprinting for the end zone as he
crossed the finish line at the "Pirates on the Run" 10-
kilometer race in Fernandina Beach on Feb. 5.
Leary, who runs at the University of Florida, was
going that fast as he sprinted alone in front of the rest
of the runners. You might have conjured up such an
image since football was certainly on our collective
minds the weekend of the race, since the Super
Bowl was in town.
The second-annual "Pirates on the Run" was not
just one of the few Super Bowl-sanctioned events in
the area. It was also a complete success, as 130 run-
nerstook to thedowntown course. Behind the scenes,
less noticeable in their roles, were many volunteers
who played a critical role in the success of the race.
Appropriately-attired members of the Pirates
Club of Fernandina Beach again graced the course
with their presence and involvement The local "Girls
on the Run" group lent a helping hand, as did ensem-
bles of the middle school and high school bands
under the guidance of Susie Bridwell.
Gail Shults and the Nassau County Volunteer
Center chipped in as they do for many non-profit
events, coordinating volunteers with dexterity.
Honors students from the high school (National
Honor-Society) and the middle school (Beta Club)
served Mateidelpe% iL t registering runners.
i Thefa t [n &Suites in downtown provid-.
ed an ideal environment for runners to pick up their
packets the day before the race and also served
as a race sponsor. Other sponsors included:
Driftwood Surf Shop, The Edwards Company, First
Coast Community Bank, Amelia Wellness Center,
Florida House Inn, Cafe Karibo, and the Amelia.
Island/Fernandina Beach/Yulee Chamber of
Commerce.
The city, under the direction of Bob Mearns,
again artfully accommodated the race, which has a
mission of showcasing the area and businesses dur-
ing a normally slow time of the year.
That certainly wasn't the case this year, as celebri-
ties and the mega-wealthy ascended on the island for
the Super Bowl festivities. Next year, the race will
again go on, albeit in a more quiet setting. But the
pace of success and goodwill will continue.

If you are a preservationist, like myself, these
are disconcerting times. If you are a true believ-
er in the "wall of protection" concept, these are
troublesome times. If you just "care what hap-
pens" to the quality of life on this island, these are
worrisome times. Just stop and consider what might
be happening to our "wall of protection":
P The 35-foot building height limitation on our
oceanfront is under attack. Architects claim that the
limitation, along with space requirements between
buildings, limits their creativity. Someone needs to
remind them that the intent of the height limitation
was to discourage the build-
ing of oceanfront condomini-
urns, one of architecture's
'. ; less creative contributions to
e'f ... humanity.
Our residential zoning
codes might be completely
e ~ reconfigured, eliminating
those zones that call for
greater lot size and more
space between buildings, R-
S 1A and R-1AA. R-2 zoning,
Ron Sapp which now allows for single
on PP family homes and duplexes
only, might be redefined in
THE NO order to allow for the con-,
'SPIN' ZONE struction of townhouses and
P ON other "creative" housing
options.
Our downtown is slated for a dose of "creativi-
ty" also; 45-foot-tall buildings dotting-the area, domi-
nating adjacent shops and houses. The creative part
lies in the building's ability to offer residential as
well as commercial space. .
The fact that our codes would prohibit such mon-
strosities if they adversely impacted traffic flow, or if
they were out of character for the area, has been
conveniently forgotten.
And, oh yeah, the city commission wants to
revise the tree ordinance. They want to, and where
have we heard this before, clear up the inconsisten-
cies; they want to do a little housekeeping all of
this is code for, "We want to make the tree ordi-
nance more builder/developer friendly."
Most people don't know that the current tree
protection ordinance is actually our second attempt
at tree protection. The first ordinance, after clearcut-
tings in the middle of the night and few "pocket-
book" penalties for unauthorized removals, was
deemed too weak, and some of us set about the task
of writing a stronger one.
Well, after more than a year of public meetings,
vigorous, if not occasionally contentious, debate, a
new, stronger tree protection ordinance was adopt-
ed. Its goal was an intentionally difficult one no
net loss of trees within the city of Fernandina
Beach.
The heart of the new ordinance, the way that we
.could achieve that goal, was twofold, 1) the imposi-
tion of heavy fines for unauthorized removal, and 2)
the creation of a valid removal authorization

process. That process would include the applicant
providing an adequate tree survey and, this is cru-
cial now, a plan to replace removed trees on a diam-
eter-for-diameter basis. Example, if you cut down a
30-inch-diameter tree, you could replace it with
three, 10-inch-diameter trees. Expensive? Yes.
Cumbersome? Yes. Potentially effective (if
enforced)? Yes.
The enforcement of the tree protection ordi-
nance has been sporadic, at best, or nonexistent-
just ask the residents of Lakewood. Now, it:
appears, the city's building department, at least on
occasion, reluctantly makes a feeble attempt at
enforcement, and it's these feeble attempts that
have put builders and developers on the edge of
their collected seats.
Here's my point The tree protection ordinance,
when enforced, is doing exactly what is was-
designed to do protect trees. How many trees on
a building site do you think would be left standing if
there weren't financial, or "pocketbook," decisions
to be made? If there were no potential fines for
unauthorized removal, or no expensive tree replace-
ment provisions in the ordinance, just how many
trees would not be destroyed by the development
process? For our answer, just look at building sites
in the county. Just take a look at how many trees
survive the bulldozer's contributions to "creativity."
The city commission, in its effort to "clean up"
the tree protection ordinance, wants to do away with
the diameter-for-diameter concept in favor of a tree-
for-tree one. So, under their new plan, if a 75- year-


old, 60-inch-diameter live oak is destroyed, it could
be replaced with a one-year old, one-inch-diameter
tree. Seems fair, right? Well, it does in their eyes.
Well, they say, the entire ordinance may well
have gone the way of the Buffalo by this time next
year, at least if they and the county commission are
able to agree on a new, islandwide tree ordinance.
Now there's a thought that just makes preserva-
tionists feel good all over, doesn't it?
The idea of the county, whose idea of tree protec-
tion is simply making sure that you put a high quali-
ty sealant on your outdoor deck, and the city, whose
majority appears to believe that the concept of tree
protection is a silly, left-wing conspiracy designed to
destroy private property rights, sitting down and
working out a mutually acceptable (builder/develop-
er-approved) tree ordinance is laughable.
The current ordinance is rooted in the "greater
good" concept, i.e., while some in the community
might be inconvenienced, or have.to pay a steep
price, financially, the whole community our quali-
ty of life benefits by preserving and protecting
trees.
No net loss of trees. I still maintain that ifts a
laudable goal; a realistic goal; a worthy goal, and
most importantly, a goal that can be accomplished.
It can be accomplished by consistently enforcing
our current tree ordinance and just leaving that
ordinance alone.

VIEWPOINT/MicHAEL REAGAN


's Florida aboutto commit legal murder?


U less Florida courts or the U.S. Supreme
Court reverse themselves, Michael
Schiavo will be allowed to kill his wife,
Terri, and do it in the most horrific way.
A judge in Pinellas County, has extended what
amounts to a stay of execution March 18. If that stay
is not extended further Michael Schiavo's attorney
says his client will immediately have the feeding
tube now keeping Terri alive removed, allowing her
to be starved to death.
Although badly brain damaged, Terri is con-
scious (not comatose), shows many signs of being
aware of her surroundings, and is not on any life
support systems. Like all of us, however, she is
dependent on nourishment If her husband succeeds
in removing her feeding tube, she will die an incredi-
bly painful death by starvation and dehydration.
How painful? According to Newsmax.com, Dr.
William Burke, a neurologist in St Louis, was quot-
ed by medical ethicist Wesley Smith as describing
the agonizing process:.
"A conscious person would feel it (dehydration)
just as you and I would. They will go into seizures.
Their skin cracks, their tongue cracks, their lips
crack. They may have nosebleeds because of the
drying of the mucous membranes, and heaving and
vomiting might ensue because of the drying out of
the stomach lining. They feel the pangs of hunger
and thirst Imagine going one day without a glass of
water. Death by dehydration takes 10 to 14 days. It is


an extremely agonizing death." ,
Not long ago, I had the unpleasant task of putting
my dog to sleep. I used a hypodermic needle and he
simply went to sleep and died. Had I done to him
what Michael Schiavo wants to do to his wife -
starve the animal to death I would have been
arrested. And in Florida, which prohibits the inhu-
mane treatment of animals, where the starvation of
one's pet is a criminal act, the courts have ruled that
it is legal to killTerri by starving her to death.
There is a video taken by Terri's parents that
shows her fully alert, smiling, reacting to their pres-
ence and following her mother's movements with
-her eyes. Shockingly, when he learned of the video,
Michael Schiavo banned any other efforts to film
her.
In the light of this, I find it disgraceful that the
judge who over the years has consistently sided with
Michael Schiavo, and has accepted the false idea
that Terri is nothing more than a vegetable whose
life is meaningless, has never once bothered to visit
Terri to learn for himself that she is a living, con-
scious, human being. I
Thanks to the secularist mainstream media the
general public is under the mistaken impression that
Terri is on life support, which is true only if being
fed and given liquids is considered life support If
that is true, all the rest of us are on life support too.
Terri suffered a serious brain injury in 1990 and
there is evidence that suggests she suffered physical


abuse that led to her condition. In a trial in 2000,
Terri's husband asked for permission to have the
feeding tube removed. As Concerned Women for.
America pointed out, "this was after he had long
since abandoned his marriage by living with another
woman (siring two children by the other woman)
and collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars from
disability insurance, pocketing the money and letting
Terri live without the medical attention he had prom-
ised to provide."
Sixth Judicial Circuit Judge George Greer has
continued to allow the husband to act as Terri's
guardian without, as Florida law requires, a
guardianship plan. Judge Greer says he is now con-
sidering whether Michael Schiavo is a fit guardian
for his wife. He also says he needs more time to
determine whether Terri Schiavo needs more med-
ical tests
Gov. Jeb Bush has told reporters that "I can
assure you I will do whatever I can within the means,
within the laws, of our state to protect this woman's
life."
If all of these moves fail, hoWever, the courts of
state of Florida will order Terri Schiavo to be starved
to death a case of judicially sanctioned murder.

State buys Pinhook Swamp acreage


Gov. Jeb Bush and the Florida
Cabinet have voted to acquire
more than 9,400 acres of the
Pinhook Swamp through perpetu-
al conservation easements. Six sep-
arate owners sold the development
rights to the state, providing per-
manent protection to the land and
water that flow into the Suwannee
and St. Mary's rivers.
"By acquiring these lands, we
can be sure that the quality of the
water flowing down from the
Okeefenokee Swamp and into two
important north Florida rivers
stays healthy," said Department of
Environmental Protection
Secretary Colleen M. Castille. "We


are also ensuring that the habitats
of Florida wildlife are protected
and preserved for future genera-
tions."
The 215,216-acre Pinhook
Swamp Florida Forever project
preserves critical habitat for threat-
ened wildlifeincluding the Florida
black bear, sandhill cranes, bob-
cat and red-cockaded woodpeck-
er. Pinhook Swamp also provides
drinking water for Northeast
Florida and is connected to the
Suwanee River, St. Marys River
and the Okeefenokee Swamp.

Georgia, Pinhook Swamp creates
the largest wildlife corridor east
of the Mississippi River. Fifty-nine
percent of the Pinhook Swamp
Florida Forever project is now pro-
tected through public ownership
or conservation easements.
Conservation easements allow
property owners to continue to use
the land while protecting it from
development.
The six parcels, varying in size
from 1,000 to 2,300 acres, were
purchased for $1.9 million, 98 per-
cent of their approved value.
The 10-year, $3 billion Florida
Forever program established by
Governor Bush and the Florida
Legislature conserves environ-
mentally sensitive land, restores
waterways and preserves impor-
tant cultural and historical
resources. For more information,

tain the quality of education with
the decrease in state funding, we
have no choice," said school board
member Jim Adams.
"I would heartily recommend to
the board the approval of Resolution
1210 and (emphasize) the need for
school impact fees in Nassau
County," said school Superinten-
dent John Ruis. "It's been a long
process to get where we are."
The board has met with some
resistance along the way to drafting
the resolution. The Northeast
Florida Builders Association has
chargedAhat baseALon..existing
funding allocated to the school dis-
trict between 2003 and 2013, the
district will be able to deal with stu-
dent population increases and have
a surplus of nearly $60 million -
without the impact fee.
School Board member Janet
Adkins disputed that conclusion,
noting that the money the builders
identified as surplus is actually ear-
marked under a district five-year
capital improvement plan for facili-
ty expansion, maintenance and ren-
ovation and for other projects that
do not address student population
increases. "Based on the survey for
our five-year program, our program
is solid," Adkins said. "There is
nothing there that's frivolous."
Adkins noted that the district
currently has 1,500 students in
"portable" buildings districtwide
and has to play "catch up." Under
the current plan for allocations the
district is receiving without the
impact fees, the number of students
in portables is to be reduced from
1,587 to 298.
"That's not to mention theiage of
our schools," Adkins'noted, explain-
ing that the district's seven oldest
schools have an average-age of
about 54 years. .'
Adkins said the $60 million is
also earmarked for use in a coop
erative project the district' has
undergone with the' Florida

HEATHER PERRY
News-Leader
Michael Howell and the staff of
the Nassau County Boys and Girls
Club are excited about the new
building planned for the club.
Housed. in the approximately
20,000-square-foot structure will be
a learning center, teaching kitchen,
drama and music room, teen
lounge, art room, canteen and gym-
nasium. An additional building will
house a horticultural greenhouse.
Outdoor features will include a soc-
cer field and fitness trail.
With approximately 128 chil-
dren using the current location at
the old Yulee Middle School,
Howell is looking forward to the
additional space. Groundbreaking
is planned at the new site off
Nassauville Road later this month
or early April.
"They're saying it will be about
10 months after that until we could
move in," said Howell.
"When we do move into the new
building," said staff member Janis
Williamson, "we'll be able to stay
open until p.m. That will be a big
help to parents commuting back
to Yulee from Jacksonville."
Howell describes the Boys and
Girls Club as "a safe and positive
place for youth to go after school
instead of being at home or in their
neighborhood looking for or
becoming a victim of trouble."
Youngsters and their parents
are offered "an alternative to the
status quo," said Howell. "along
with positive adult guidance."
Homework help and tutoring,
career development, health and life
skills, the arts, sports, fitness and
recreation are all available at the
club. Valuable educational pro-
grams help improve performance
in school and develop a love of
learning.
Character development is also
provided, said Howell. "Youth are
taught to respect themselves and
others and to become responsible,
contributing members of society."
The club gives kids "a place to
call their own," said Howell, "where
they are accepted, shown respect
and can feel comfortable with their
peers. It's like one big family!"

Kingsley

Plantation
The National Park Service has
begun stabilization of the early 19-
century kitchen house at Kingsley
Plantation, according to park super-
intendent Barbara Goodman.
The project will necessitate
relocating the bookstore and exhib-
it area, both of which are now
housed in the kitchen house, to
other historic buildings.
The historic Kingsley Plantation
is.located,on Fort George Island
near the mouth of the St Johns
River. Its main house, also slated for
repairs later this year, is the old-
est;standing plantation owner's,
house in Florida.
Kingsley Plantation is a part of
the,, 46,Q000-acre Timucuan
Ecological and Historic Preserve.
During this repair period, the
plantation grounds will remain
open, to: visitors, according to
G odm.an., '.,,:.
The bookstore. will be relocated
to the rear of the Fort George Club
building, next to the main planta-
tiop house: Exhibits will be housed
eminorarily in the plantation barn,
near the parking lot.
i, Describing the project,
Goodmani said: The mission of the
National Park Service is to pre-
serve and protect the places and
stories of importance to the
American people. There is nothing
l ,itelike this collection of planta-
tion buildings anywhere else in the
National Park Service. Because the
structui-es have survived, visitors to
Kingsley Plantation can get a
strong sense of Florida plantation
life as it was lived by both slave
and slave owner. It is to preserve
this sense of place for future gen-
erations that we are restoring the
buildings today."

additions to that family. "With all
the growth in our county, we want
to be ready for an influx of new
members," said Howell.
Children ages 6 through 18 are
welcome at the club. Parents inter-
ested in enrolling their children in
the Nassau County Boys and Girls
Club can call Michael Howell at
261-8666 (a.m.) or 225-8516 (p.m.)
for an enrollment form. Enrollment

Animal trapper stays



busy, enjoys his work


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader
Tending small wild animals in
one way or another for several
years was what helped Robert
Morris find his true calling at last.
Morris is a live animal trapper who
has worked his way up to a busi-
ness of his own after learning by
doing at the local Humane Society,
the Jacksonville Humane society
and a job at a wildlife and pest con-
trol company in Georgia. But once
he was licensed in Florida, he said
goodbye to the job and struck out
on his own.
It did not hurt, he says, that his
dad was the winner of $10 million in
the April 2001 Florida lottery with
a ticket bought at Smile Gas in
Yulee. "He helped me get my start
in business. 'That's a good part of
the reason I am in a position to do
what I like to do best: animal con-
trol," Morris says, "but I don't do
domestic animals."
Before that, he says, he tested
the waters by getting into commu-
nity service for the Humane
Society, which then hired him part
time and the future animal trapper
could let the animals out of their
cages on weekends while he
cleaned them, he says. That led to
a job as full-time kennel help, where
he realized that. a career dealing
with animals was the career he


wanted. Then he
was promoted to
4 animal control
officer and he got
to do field work
rather than shel-
ter work. "And I
Srloved it from the
Morris start," Morris
says.
He stayed on
after the Humane Society got the
contract for all of Nassau County,
and then went to a job in the
Jacksonville Humane Society,
where he was promoted to cruelty
investigator. "But I had enough of
that, went back to animal control,
left again and went to the job in
Georgia," Morris says.
"And that led to what I do now."
Now he deals with all wildlife
except protected animals, and he
says most of his business comes
from Realtors. "That's because if a
house has been vacant for a while,
they want it inspected so there are
no surprises in the attic when they
show the property to prospective
buyers," Morris says.
The Humane Society has helped
with his continuing education, aind:
he has been certified by the
Humane Society of the U.S. holds
two certifications from the Florida
Animal Control Association; is
licensed by the Florida Wildlife
Commission; "and I have an occu-

His most interesting animal case
was an encounter with a Florida
panther while he and two others
were working on a driveway at
Marsh Point. It was then that
Morris discovered that the panther
roams the sound end of the island.
"He was docile, turned around and
walked away," Morris says. "And
he still roams the island." (Florida
Wildlife receives reports from the
public about sightings of bears and
panthers on Amelia Island.)
Every animal has different
behavior, Morris says, "and I am a
complete humanitarian. But no one
wants me to bring them into the
neighborhood, so I do everything
except rats and venomous snakes.
"Everything" includes non-ven-
omous snakes, armadillos, squir-
rels, raccoons, birds, opossums,
bats, foxes, "etc." he says. "I use
box traps but with covers on the
traps to keep the animals out of the
rain and weather until I can relocate
them."
Relocation consists of putting
the animals back into their habi-
tats, and of animal rescue. And he
works with BEAKS, "which takes
all injured wildlife," he says, "but
not domestic animals."
Morris says "Animal Control
gets gators if they are under 6 feet
long, but over 6 feet- the state trap-
per gets them," he says.
Morris, who moved here almost
20 years ago, came to a place where
his dad's family had lived for gen-
erations, entered the ninth grade
and became an islander. He has no
plans for the future other than to
keep enjoying what he does
"because I'm content and happy
jtist staying busy, and I'm now just
where I want to be," he says.
He 'has a 10 year-old daughter
who helps him with the outside
traps, and he says he is very proud
of her interest and ability with ani-
mals.
"She loves animals, too," he
says.

were reported to have produced
negative results regarding con-
tamination by pollutants on his

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2,2005/News-Leader


Mortgage broker into 'Monkey Boxing'


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
Yulee mortgage broker Rob
Walker has dedicated a great deal of
his time over the last three months
to "Monkey Boxing."
No, it's not a little-known animal
sport, but the name of his movie
screenplay that he hopes will soon
be widely known.
"That's a very small part of the
film and it's just a catchy name,"
Walker said.
Inspired by his interests in
anthropology, science fiction, biker
culture and the paranormal, Walker
has put together a unique script
driven by two storylines that cross
and build as his characters reel from
discoveries they find unbelievable.
The story is based completely in
Florida, much of it in Yulee and
Fernandina Beach. Walker said his
feeling of accomplishment in fin-
ishing the script is sweetened by
the fact that it pleases the movie
appreciator in him.
"This is something I would want
to see," Walker said.
The screenplay started as a lark,
an idea that lent itself to the begin-


The screenplay is based completely in Florida,
much ofit in Mee and Fernandina Beach.


ning of a new hobby, Walker said.
"I was just going to write a short
story to try my hand at writing,"
but the story soon ran to the length
of a novel, Walker said. Adding to
his project's complexity, he decided
to change the format of his story
before it was completely plotted.
"I was just surfing the Internet
and saw that they were accepting
applications in a screenwriting com-
petition," Walker said. "I went ahead
and converted it to a feature film. I
had to read books on how to con-
vert it from a book to a screenplay.
I was up until 3 o'clock in the morn-
ing several nights."
To top off the screenplay writing,
Walker wrote a "log line," a short
summary useful in marketing
screenplays.
"Bike Week in Daytona will
never be the same after a team of
ghost-hunters discover that many
(bikers) belong to a secret society


of paranormals that date back to
the days of man's origins," Walker
said, reading his log line. "The team
gets more than they bargained for
when their investigation backfires."
Walker said "Monkey Boxing" is
delivered in a fashion similar to
writer/director Quentin Tarantino's
"Pulp Fiction," in which two stories
intertwine and eventually meet.
"I've got a bunch of landmark
stuff in Fernandina written into the
script," Walker noted. The rest of
the story takes place during Bike
Week in Daytona Beach. That city's

professional beliefs in conflict with
something the ghost hunting team
discovers.
"She goes through a crisis,"
Walker said. "She's being con-
fronted with a supernatural element
that challenges her nicely packaged
theory."
That crisis comes from the fact
that the story exploits the gaps and
overlaps inherent in the theory of
evolution, he explained.
Now that his script is officially
copyrighted with the Library of
Congress, Walker has begun to
pitch the story, sending out 10
query letters so far. He has also
uploaded his script to "Simply
Scripts," a website through which
readers can provide feedback to
writers.
He also plans to submit the
script in ajax Film Fest competition
and "Scriptapalooza," a national
event judged by 60 film industry
representatives.
"It's been a real feeling of
accomplishment, the fact that I've
actually done it," Walker said. "A lot
of people have ideas, but not many
people do that."

For the News-Leader
For many booklovers, it's not
unusual to be reading a couple of
books at the same time. Once fin-
ished, those books often fall into
two categories: some that you love
and couldn't bear to part with, and
some you're ready to pass along.
If you're looking for that next
great read or are ready to clear
your shelves to make room for new
books or both mark your cal-
endar for the Friends of the
Library Annual Book Sale Friday
and Saturday. It's known as a
booklover's paradise.
For months, the Friends have
been gathering books for children
and adults fiction and non-fiction
- and will present thousands of
gently used books ready for new
readers. It's an opportunity to pick
up books for beach reading, chil-
dren's books for visiting grand-
children, books with illustrations
worth framing, out-of-print gems
no longer available elsewhere,
even old books for decorating your
home. Paperbacks are 50 cents to
$1.50 each and hardcovers are just
$2 perbook.
It's not too late to go through
your own book collection and


University of Florida


Elderly people of modest means
have few choices when it comes to
finding an affordable assisted living
facility in many communities,
according to a new University of
Florida study that shows a huge
disparity in the availability of this
popular long-term care alternative.
Although the gap was found in
Florida, the inequities likely are
even more pronounced nationwide,
said Stephen Golant, a UF geron-
tologist and geography professor
who did the study with Jennifer
Salmon, a professor in the Univer-
sity of South Florida's School of
Aging Studies.
Eighty-four percent of Florida's
affordable assisted living units are
concentrated in only 20 percent of
the state's counties, reported the
authors, whose study was published
in the December issue of the
Journal of Applied Gerontology.
As a result, more than one-third


- 36.6 percent of Florida's more
than 210,000 frail and low-income
elderly residents live in counties
that are "especially underserved"
by affordable assisted living units,
while 17 percent live in counties
with an oversupply, he said.
Respondents were considered
frail if they had limited mobility or
ability to care for themselves, based
on Census data.
Assisted living facilities, which
emerged in the 1980s, are the
fastest-growing long-term care alter-
native to nursing homes for the
nation's elderly, primarily targeted
to wealthier seniors, Golant said.
"When older persons move, they
usually relocate within a small geo-
graphic area often the same
county. They choose to live in a
familiar place," he said.
"Unfortunately, the findings of our
study suggest that many low-
income, frail older adults will have
to travel miles away if they want to
find an affordable assisted living

residence."
This may be especially trouble-
some to their grown children who
want to maintain close contact,
Golant said. "Research in nursing
homes has shown that their staff is
more likely to be vigilant when they
know there is a family member
around looking out for their older
parent sometimes referred to as
the 'baby-sitting factor,"' Golant said.
Robyn Stone, executive director
of the Institute for the Future of


Aging Services, said the study
"should be a wake-up call for poli-
cymakers, city and regional plan-
ners, developers and providers
about the need for more affordable
assisted living, particularly in areas
of Florida that are currently severe-
ly underserved. This important
work underscores the need for bet-
ter local market analysis so that we
can ensure a more equitable use of
resources to meet the needs of our
most vulnerable seniors."

Chaney inserted
Nehemiah Ingram, 6-foot-8
and 250 pounds, into the line-
up to throw a few elbows in
retaliation for referees not
penalizing St. Joseph's, who
he said was setting illegal

If you think Chaney, who
has been suspended for the

Pirates open season with wins over Bolles, Trinity


BETH JONES
SNews-Leader
The season opened Thursday for the Fernandina
Beach High School baseball team. The Pirates traveled
to Bolles and shut out their guests 1-0. On Saturday,
the Pirates walloped Trinity 12-2 in the home opener.
"The pitching has been outstanding in our first
two games," FBHS Coach Ken Roland said. "Ryan
Estes and Kyle Davis pitched very well in their starts
and Kevin Beck picked up a save. Our pitching has
allowed only one walk in 13 innings of work.
"Defensively we have played well with no errors
from position players. The hitting picked up on
Saturday with 1? hits against Trinity. I hope we can stay
hot with the bats. We will face outstanding pitching in
the early part of schedule."
Estes threw six innings in the opener at Bolles,
striking out five, walking one and gi\ ing up three hits
and no runs. Beck pitched the se% enth and ga\ e up just
one hit.
The Pirates had six hits, including a double by
Chris Conley in the first inning. But Conley was the
first of 11 batters left on base by the Pirates.
In ;he second inning the Pirates loaded the bases
when Blaine Dickinson reached on an error and stole
second, Marcus Chatman walked and Estes was hit by.
a pitch. Brett Moore reached first but Chatman was'


out at third on a fielder's choice for the third out,
leaving three Pirates on base.
Will Taylor got on base after being hit by a pitch
in the third and Dickinson singled, but both were left
stranded. The Pirates got hits from Marcus Carter and
Chatman in the fourth and sixth innings, respective-
ly, but there was still no score after six innings. In the
top. of the seventh, Moore singled on a bunt but was
picked off at second. Conley reached base on an error
and eventually was poised to score on third. Taylor sin-
gled in the winning run.
The Pirates hosted Trinity Christian on Saturday,
scoring two in the first, five in the third, two in the
fourth and three more in the sixth and final inning in
a game shortened by the 10-run rule. There were
two outs and a pair of runners left on base when the
game ended.
Davis and Josh Hyers combined on the mound
for the win. Davis threw five innings, striking out five,
walking one and giving up two hits. Hyers threw the
sixth, allowing two runs on three hits.
Conley, Hunter Burbank and Estes had two hits
apiece for the Pirates in their 12-hit marathon. Conley,
Taylor and Jarrod Carlton doubled.
The Pirates (2-0) hosted Marist, Ga., Monday and
travel south Friday for games at Winter Haven Friday
and Lake Wales Saturday. FBHS hosts Sandalwood at
6 p m Tuesday.

Maniacs take


on older squads,


finish in sixth

The Amelia Island Maniacs 12-and-under volleyball
team placed sixth in a 13-and-under tournament spon-
sored by thie Jacksonville Junior Volleyball Association
Saturday.
"We had won our first two tournaments at the 12-
and under level and we thought our girls needed to
step up the level of competition," said Coach Joe
C.ockrell. "We played some tcamIs that were .older
and bigger than we are.
"We competed well. Hopefully the experience will
make us a better team."
The Maniacs went 1-2 in pool play, losing to Lake
County 27-25, 21-25, 17-15 in the closest of the tour-
nament. The Maniacs had a game point in the first
game and led 15-14 in the third game before losing.
Amelia Island then fell to the Brick City 25-18, 25-
19, before defeating the Gainesville Blue Lightning 25-
20, 25-22.
Advancing to the silver bracket, the Maniacs defeat-
ed Tallahassee White 26-24, 25-22. In the silver brack-
et finals, the Blue Lightning topped the Maniacs 25-
13, 25-21.
"It was a long day and we were missingsome key
players," Cockrell added. "Shelley Silva filled in for us
at setter and served consistently all day. Lizzie
Cumberland really hustled and also served well for us.
She has improved so much recently. Cori Kennett
came off the bench a couple times and hit some blis-
tering ser ves. She finished one game off with a clean
ace.
Top Maniac servers for the day were Brittany
Cumberland with 23 points, Lizzie Cumberland and
Emmalee Bales both with 21 and Shelley Silva with 19.
The 12s play Saturday in Middleburg.
The 16-and-under Maniacs placed fourth out' of
10 teams in the same tournament.
The Maniacs opened with a win over the Springhill
Slammers 25-13, 25-14, 25-14 but lost to the Orlando
Volleyball Association red team 16-25, 25-16, 17-25.
The Maniacs moved into the silver division and
drew a first-round bye. AIM beat Tallahassee Volleyball
Association 25-17, 25-10 to take fourth place.
"Overall they played really well," Coach Herb
Hatch said. "They have to learn how to maintain inten-
sity for a whole tournament. You can't blink."
The 16-and-under team could possibly play again
this weekend in Jacksonville, but if not, the Maniacs'
next tournament will be April 16 at Middleburg.


Raines, West Nassau

games rained out
The Fernandinia Beach High School girls softball
team played just one of their three scheduled games
last week. The Lady Pirates lost 6-1 to Ridgeview
thanks to six fielding errors on Feb. 22.:
"That hurt us big," FBHS Coach Lesley Slaughter
said. "We're still looking for our starting combina-
tion of players."
Thursday's game at Raines and Friday's matchup
against cross-county rival West Nassau were canceled
because of rain.
The Lady Pirates (1-2, 1-0 in district play) hosted
Bishop Kenny Tuesday and travel to Episcopal
Thursday. Friday's game at Palatka has been resched-
uled for March 18. The Raines and West Nassau
games will be rescheduled.

Round 4 Which golf course designer made the
infamous 17th island 'green at the TPC
at Sawgrass?
a) Ben Hogan c) Pete Dye
Mostly Cloudy b) Frank Fazio d) Jack Nicklaus
Hi: 72 Lo; 56 oAIa 81d (o u:OMsu


March 6. 1994 Jay Sigel made his-
tory on the Senior PGA Tour (now the
Champions Tour). He began his final
round of play 10 strokes behind
leader Jim Colbert. Sigel fired a blis-
tering 62 in the final round to catch
Colbert. Then, Sigel went on to
defeat Colbert in a playoff. The 10-
shot deficit that was erased marked
the largest comeback in the history of
the Senior PGA Tour.


One of those shots that we do
not get the opportunity to
practice very much, but
comes in handy at times is
the lob shot. In essence, the
lob shot is a complete feel
shot, so there are a few trcks
to follow. The first step is to
make sure that your grip
pressure is soft and your hands stay quiet.
You want to keep your grip pressure con-
stant throughout the entire stroke. Your
best course of action is to make a long, lazy
swing with as much wristcock as you can
get on your backswing. You need to make
your stance much wider than what you are
used to and open the clubface up dramati-
cally to get the ball in the air immediately.
The final point is to play the ball off of your
left instep with almost all of your weight
being placed on your right foot.

OUTDOORS


It was one of those late
February cloudy, rainy days
with the air temperature
hovering in the low 70s,
which actually produces some of
the best largemouth bass fishing
in many
Northeast-
Florida lakes
and river
systems.
Local
river bass
guide
Richard
Sheets was
well pre-
Terry Lacoss pared for his
... S rainy day on
the water
OUTDOORS with rain
gear and
extra warm clothes as he greeted
his two clients at the Lofton
Creek boat ramp and park.
Mike and Mary Jeanne
O'Hare had actually planned the
day before to enjoy some fly fish-
ing for redfish, but the wind and
rain had kept them off the water.
"We will be well protected
from the wind in this wooded
creek," Sheets said as he greeted
his morning bass charter. "I
don't think the rain is going to be
a problem either, but we are pre-
pared with rain gear if it decides
to rain on us. One thing for sure,
the bass have been biting and
are fattening up for their annual
spawn during the next few
months."
After launching Sheets' 21-
foot bass boat, the fishing party
navigated south from the boat
ramp and, after a short run,
Sheets anchored his shallow
water skiff in a deep turn in the
river, which also harbored a feed-
er creek and a shallow shelf.
The captain then rigged medi-
um heavy spinning rods with live
shiners and gave his clients a few
quick seminars on how to work
underl'lose to the bank.
% hen to set the hook and hoi to
play their bass once hooked.
Soon two lively shiners were
cast up close to a variety of river
vegetation including marsh
grass, lily pads and hidrila deep
under the river's surface.
It didn't take long for Mary
Jeanne's shiner to attract a near-
by bass as her shiner began to
swim frantically on the surface
for the nearest cover, a nearby


willow bush that was leaning
over into the water. However, a
split second before the shiner
reached the protection of the
bush, a fairly large river bass
gobbled up Mary Jeanne's live
bait with a loud ka-ploosh.
"That's a real big bass that
just ate your live shiner," Sheets
said. "Keep the bail of your. spin-
ning reel open for a few seconds.
and let your bass swallow the
bait first."
For a few very nervous sec-
onds, Mary Jeanne allowed the
bass to take her bait down deep
into the depths of the river bank
where it would hopefully take the
live shiner and hook back in its
mouth where she would have an
easier chance in hooking her tro-
phy bass.
"Shut the bail and reel in the
slack fishing line, then set the
hook hard," Sheets said.
After a jaw-wrenching hook
set, Mary Jeanne's big bass
swam deep, taking 12-pound fish-
ing line from her reel at will.
Then it shot straight for the shal-
low riverbank where it jumped
wildly to the pleasure of the
Sheets' bass fishing party.
A few more runs in deep
water and Sheets slid the large
rim of his landing net under
Mary Jeanne's tired bass. The
female Lofton Creek bass
weighed just over six pounds and
was quickly released back into
the tannic stained waters of the
fishy bass river.
The trio of fishermen spent
the rest of the morning hooking
bass weighing up to six pounds
while drifting live shiners under
a small float and, at one point,
Mike and Mary Jeanne O'Hare
had a double hookup, landing a
five- and four-pound bass to
Sheets' approval.
At the end of their morning
on Lofton Creek, the O'Hares
had caught and released 12
largemouth bass weighing to
slightly over the six-pound mark.
Bass fishing has definitely
picked up in Northeast Florida
lakes and rivers, particularly
around the full moon that came
Thursday.
"We caught several nice bass
weighing to five pounds this past
Saturday while fishing in
Rodman reservoir," Capt. Jim
Allen said. "The bass fishing can
only get better as the spawning

Hunt permits
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-
site, MyFWC.com.
For the first time since 1975,
hunters will not mail application
forms to Tallahassee to apply for
the quota hunt permits.
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
April 20.
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-
mation.
Remaining un-issued quota
permits will be made available
directly from license agents,
county tax collectors' offices and
online atMyFWC.com on a first-
come, first-served basis once the
random drawing has been com-
pleted.
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-
ings.
"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."

Maryland seniors offer valuable insights into life


made things last a long
time and become treas-
ured antiques. Wine
and cheese, often, are enhanced
by aging. So it is with people.
Spending time with those that
have many years behind them is a
priceless opportunity. There is no
artifice and no tattoos or body
piecings. There are no stiletto
heels and heavy makeup or green
or orange hair. Instead clothes are
simple easy to pull on or pull
over. Hair is most often short and
easy to keep. There is little mis-
placed vanity. Rather there is a
rediscovered innocence that
comes from living a simpler life..
My sister and I have fallen into


a pleasura-
ble habit.
We meet
halfway
between
her home
S" in Boston
and mine in
Florida.

Dickie Anderson we rent a

head out
FROM THE Route 50
PORCH and across
the Chesa-
peake Bay Bridge to the Eastern
Shore of Maryland to an assisted


living community. We have made
the trip many times over the
years. It feels like coming home.
After a move from Princeton,
NJ., our parents choose
Chestertown, Md., on the Eastern
Shore of Maryland and the assist-
ed living community that would
be their home for many years.
They were blessed and we were
blessed. Most of the years were
good ones. We felt relief when
they first made the decision to
move into assisted living where
they had convenient medical care,
a very compatible community of
people with similar interests. We
had many years of knowing that
they were safe and well taken
care. In fact, we found that they


had a lot more fun then we

Even thought my parents are

have become extended family to
us.
The "ladies" as we call them
are in their 90s. We find ourselves
giggling, talking about the latest
books and news.
We usually take a group to din-
ner. It takes a while to get the
show on the road. We take out
time and are welcomed at the
local restaurant where our guests
are well known and respected. No
indulgence is forgotten we enjoy


wine,,whatever we want to eat
and, .usually, dessert. We can
count on lively conversation even
if we have to repeat ourselves.
We leave these visits feeling
good about the love and hugs that
always come our way.
Time spent with these special
seasoned friends is treasured. It is
a chance to listen to unique and
wonderful memories and insights.
They inspire us in many ways.
They do not let infirmities slow
them down.
They do not worry about the
future they live in the now.

grams in high-need areas around

A local board made up of United
Way, government entities,

funds must 1) be private voluntary
non-profits or units of government,

5-month-old housebroken
tan and black coonhound

wonderful pet. Those soft
velvet eai-s and the satiny
coat are so pattable! They
are easy to groom and keep
clean, and they are not just
interested in being hunting
dogs. They like to be com-
panions and family dogs.
Sabrina is truly sweet and
with some gentle training,
learning to walk on a leash,
and lots of love. You'll never
regret giving a hound dog a
place in your house!
The adoption fee is $90,
which helps medical treat-
ment.
The shelter also has a
really big domestic long hair
gray cat named "Odie." His
brother Garfield got a won-

which helps cover some of
the medical work that has
been completed on Odie.
If you are interested in
adopting either of these
pets, please stop by or call
the shelter at 321-1NHS. It
is open Mohday to Friday

meet you. I'm quite the regal
young lady, which you can

hold my big beautiful black
bushy tail tall as I stroll, to
let everyone know I'm the
princess. Some say I have
an attitude; I view it as -
knoswing'my mind and
expressing my wishes! Yet I'
generally get along with
other kitties and enjoy play-
ing with them. Another one
of my favorite things is being
brushed, I find that simply
divine.

for a lap cat that is also gor-
geous (spoken in all mod-
esty of course), stop in at
