John Travolta's love affair with

according to the local chamber of

this week.
"This is going to be a lot big-

Carolyn Haney, Nassau County

Judge

SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
The Nassau County School
Board does not have grounds to
fire former Southside Elementary
teacher Karen Hanna, a judge has
ruled.
In his ruling Thursday,
Administrative Law Judge Robert
Meale said there was no evidence
to back charges by the board that
Hanna was insubordinate or emo-
tionally unstable.
He said demands made on her
by schools Superintendent John
Ruis and
South side
Principal Diana
Middleton were
"unreasonable or
unauthorized."
The ruling fol-
lows a hearing
last October at Hanna
which Hanna,
Middleton, Ruis
and Southside guidance counselor
Susan Ross testified.
Meale's recommendation is not
binding on the school board, and
each side has 15 days to submit
written exceptions to his ruling.
Hanna was represented by attor-
ney John Cascone and Ruis by
Brian Hayes.
Hanna was suspended from her
job in January 2004 and threatened
with firing after refusing orders
from Middleton in October 2003
to report one of her first-grade stu-
dents to the state Department of
Children and Families (DCF) child
abuse hotline as a sexual predator.
NMeale upheld Hanna's decision
as the right one and said
"Middleton's directive was unrea-
sonable" because Hanna properly
investigated secondhand claims
about the child, one in a restroom
and one in the cafeteria, and deter-
mined the incidents were horse-
play.
Meale said Middleton's order
also was not supported by law.
Florida statutes reserve the hot-
line for reporting child abuse by a
"parent, legal custodian, caregiver
or other person responsible for the
child's welfare," he said, not a child.
"Apparently, the principal relied
on a school board rule that was,
according to the principal and the
superintendent, intended to track
the statute, but unfortunately fails
to include the restrictive language
as to the class of potential perpe-
trators," Meale wrote.
"A first-grade child is not a care-
giver or a person otherwise respon-
sible for the welfare of one of his fel-
low first-grade students."
Middleton testified that when
Hanna refused, she made the call to
the hotline.

'Glory of God' brings diversity to church


GLENDA S. JENKINS/NEWS-LEADER
Bishop Van Gayton, with his wife Ellen, greets the congrega-
tion following his installation as pastor at Christ the Redeemer
Church in Fernandina Beach.

He has served congregations
large and small, preached to schol-
ars and ministered to people living
on the streets.
For'more than three decades,
Bishop Van Gayton's evangelism
has reached around the world to a
broad cross-section of worshippers.
Now, as the newly installed pas-
tor of Christ the Redeemer Church
in Fernandina Beach, Gayton finds
himself again breaking barriers in
new territory.
"I love pioneering new things,"
he said. "I believe I'm called to do
that."
As the pastor of Christ the
Redeemer, Gayton has been called
to the responsibility of helping the
church to grow spiritually. And
through his leadership, the con-
gregation may also grow multicul-

turally.
'The glory of God is that a 98
percent white church is asking me
to be their pastor," he said. "You
can't make that happen. Only God
can do that."
Raised in a predominantly
African-American neighborhood in
Olean, N.Y., a small town of 16,000
people near Buffalo, Gayton has
cultivated multicultural ministries
before. But as a child he learned
early how differences among peo-
ple can bring conflict.
"I was the only black child in
every class I ever had. I got a first-

class education, but I paid for it," he
said.
During recess he endured
harassment from his white male
schoolmates and often'got into
fights with them. But his work as a
pastor has led him to surmount
racial and cultural differences
among Christians and to create a
path to unity.
Gayton's marriage was the first
step on that path.
"It kind of puts me on the cut-
ting edge for that situation," he said

ALICE WALSH
News-Leader

"This is John Smith, and I'm
calling from the Security and
Fraud Department at VISA. My
badge number is 86504. Your
card has been flagged for an
unusual purchase pattern, and
I'm calling to verify. Did you pur-
chase a new computer device for
$450 from a marketing firm in
California?"
So begins the newest credit
card scam, whose purpose is to
get you to give them the 3-digit
PIN number on the back of the
card. (The American Express
card has a four-digit number on
the front of the card instead. It is
flat and does not reproduce
when the card is scanned.)
When you reply that you did
not make such a purchase, the
caller tells you that they will be
issuing a credit in that amount,
and cites your mailing address,
which he asks you to verify. This
is to gain your trust.
He even gives you a control
number, and asks you to call the
800 VISA number on the back of
your card if you have any ques-
tions, giving them the control
number.
Now he tells you that he
needs to verify that you are in
possession of your card. He will
ask you to "turn your card over
and look for some numbers.
There are seven numbers. The
first four are your card number,


the next
three are
the "securi-
., ty numbers"
that verify
you are in
...... possession
of the card.
These are the numbers you use
to make Interment purchases to
prove you have the card.
"Read me the three num-
bers."
If you do, you have given him
exactly what he was looking for
in order to immediately charge
the amount quoted (in this
example, $450) to your card.
Remember, the real VISA
company or any valid credit card
company will never ask for any-
thing on the card as they already
know the information since they
issued the card.
If you are contacted with a
similar request, do not give the
requested numbers. Instead,
make some excuse such as "my
daughter has my card right now,
but I will call you back. How can
I reach you?" Then call your
credit card company, confirm the
scam, and file a police report as
the company instructs.
We must be willing to fight
back, rather than just hang up
and forget it, in order to put the
brakes on scams.
Fear of prosecution can go a
long way in discouraging the
scammers.

TEACHER Continued from 1A
DCF ruled that call to be false
and a criminal investigation was
undertaken by the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office. No charges were
ever brought in the case.
The experience was traumatic
for the family of the child accused
of the sexual abuse. DCF and a
sheriff's detective arrived on their
doorstep unannounced on a
Saturday morning to investigate
the allegations, throwing them into
turmoil, they said.
They said they had no prior indi-
cation from the school there was
any problem with their son's behav-
ior and his school records noted
he was doing well academically and
socially.
The mother of the child who
was allegedly sexually abused was
not notified until a courtesy call
from DCF more than a month after
the alleged incident to tell her it
was being investigated as a false
report. She said when questioned,
her son told her it was horseplay
and that the other boy had tugged
at his waistband.
The parents of the accused child
withdrew him from Southside after
repeated attempts to get to the bot-
tom of the issue, and after their son
was punished for a minor play-
ground scuffle and made to crush
cans, without their notification, the
day after the school was informed
that the call to, the DCF hotline in
Tallahassee would be investigated
as a false report.,
They believe school authorities
were trying to justify the call to
DCF after the fact
Meale noted in.his ruling that
tension did increase between
Middleton and Hanna as the inves-
tigation by DCF proceeded, writ-
ing that Middleton was "frustrat-
ed" 'with Hanna and that her
"dissatisfaction intensified"
when she thought Hanna lied to
investigators.
"It is difficult to justify Ms.
Middleton's conclusion that, essen-
tially, (Hanna) had lied to the inves-
tigator," he wrote, noting that the
principal had "admitted at the hear-
ing that (Hanna) had the responsi-
bility of sorting out the alleged rest-
room incident to determine

Teacher wants job back


Karen Hanna, a former first-
grade teacher at Southside
Elementary School who was
absolved of insubordination by
a judge's ruling Thursday.
wants her old job back.
Her lawyer. John Cascone of
Fernandina Beach. outlined this
and a list of other requests in a
proposed order to
Administrative Law Judge
Robert Meale.
Hanna was suspended from
her job in January 2004 and
threatened with firing for failing
to report one of her 7-year-old
students to the Department of
Children and Families as a pos-
sible sexual predator.
Meale ruled in Hanna's favor
Thursday and recommended
the Nassau County School
Board dismiss its proceeding to
terminate her contract.
Cascone is seeking for his
client reinstatement of back pay,
retirement, sick leave, vacation,

guilty of any misbehavior that
required reporting to the authori-
ties."
"Unfortunately, the situation
deteriorated," he wrote, as a local
TV station picked up the story and
then phoned Ruis to say Hanna
had called them, apparently suici-
dal. Hanna denied this at the hear-
ing.
Ruis alerted police, who took'
Hanna to the hospital. She was
released the next day, but Ruis
refused to let Hanna return to work
until she gave "information relat-
ing to your medical condition
and/or status at admission and
upon your release" from hospital.
Meale said although that letter
from Ruis, dated Jan. 15, 2004,
"claimed to be concerned with
(Hanna's) emotional condition and


seniority and "such other fur-
ther relief that is deemed appro-
priate and would otherwise
inure to her benefit during the
normal course of employment."
Cascone also wants the
school board to pay for any
counseling or other services
Hanna may need as a result of
the events surrounding her sus-
pension.
She also is entitled to reim-
bursement for all lawyer's fees
and the costs of her defense, he
wrote, "and jurisdiction is main-
tained for the purpose of estab-
lishing such sums in an appro-
priate amount absent the ability
of the parties to reach such an
agreementL"
Cascone added that Hanna
also should receive "such other
and further relief as may be
necessary to carry out the
intent and spirit of the findings
herein."

her ability to return to work, most
of the items demanded by the
superintendent in this letter per-
tained to (Hanna's) involvement in
the ... incidents of early October
2003."
While Hanna did supply notes
from her doctor verifying her abil-
ity to return to work, Meale said
according to the school board's
own rules, Ruis "lacked the author-
ity to demand (Hanna's) medical
records" and that her refusal to
supply them did not constitute
gross insubordination.-

dence in the case is posted on the

On February 23, 2005 the Fernandina
Beach News Leader broke the story on .._
ihree Irophy houses being built on ha
South Fletcher. The headline: "Tall,
close new it)s le for beach homes?"
City Manager Robert Mearns was 7
quoted as saying the house at 2252 T :
South Fletcher complies with city
codes. There was no comment from
the City Commission.- 4- -

GREG ROLAND SAYS ONE THING..;'
On March 1 5, 2005, only AFTER the houses had become a major issue
in the community, Mayor Greg Roland called for an outside
"investigation." Roland said, "If we'%e done something incorrectly, we
need to know about it."

!7 BUT... memo reveals

.....GREG ROLAND REALLY DID KNOW
about the violations since February 7!
A memorandum dated February 7, 2005 from a member of the
Planning Advisory Board was sent to Mearns and Roland, copied
to the Planning Department, and forwarded to the City Attorney.

The memo said: "Three houses are being constructed in the 2200 block of
S. Fletcher, adjacent to an existing house at 2282 S. Fletcher.. The south side
l t house appears to be in serious violation of the side yard setback rules. If
the other 2 houses are to be the same height, they will also be in violation.
This construction should be stopped until the possible violations are
i investigated and corrected as may be necessary."

The memo went on to say. "You can do something about this; please do it."


Meanwhile, construction continued!

They knew. They didn't care.

And they covered it up.


Isn't it time for a change at City Hall?

Europeans, Boomer.


over Nassau County


The Europeans have proud
ownership of many popular
brands: Michelin tires, Heineken
beer and the Burger King restau-
rant chain, to name a few.
They could also own the lot
next door to you.
In a new trend, Europeans are
buying American real estate. Due
to a stronger currency than the
U.S. dollar, they can buy more
American goods than before. An
increasingly popular item is real
estate.
Several local real-estate bro-
kers indicated that Europeans are
buying property right here in
Nassau County. like many
Americans, they are finding real
estate to be a lucrative venture -
especially in the U.S., and partic-
ularly in red-hot areas such as
Florida.
If you recall, the Japanese
were buying anything and every-
thing that was American during
the late 1980s. The most memo-
rable acquisition was the Empire
State Building.
The Japanese buying binge
eventually cratered along with
Japan's economy. Ironically, one
of the biggest booms inciting the
Japanese economy until its melt-
down was real estate on their
own turf.
As the Japanese financial sys-
tem began to unravel, the real-
estate market there with its
exaggerated prices also tum-
bled. This is not to compare what
happened in Japan to what is tak-.
ing place within our borders.
However, there are some


alarming sim-
ilarities. One
eerie similari-
ty is a popu-
lar practice
S known as
"flipping."
In a prac-
tice reminis-
cent of the
Steve technology
Nicklas craze of the
late 1990s,
investors are
STEVE'S buying real
MARKET estate with
the intention
PLACE of selling
almost simul-
taneously for a higher price,
of course.
You hear people use expres-
sion such as, "You can't lose," and
"You can double your money in
no time." (A general rule of
thumb: if you hear such state-
ments in regard to any invest-
ment, be wary.)
With a rapid-fire purchase and
sale of a property, an investor is
trying to capitalize on a fast-mov-
ing market; thus, the term "flip-
ping." This is an accurate descrip-
tion of what is happening in
Nassau County, in Florida and
through many parts of the U.S.
Low interest rates, a wave of
Baby Boomers preparing for
retirement, and the allure of
warmer climates (especially
along the coast) have sent the
real-estate markets soaring.

as many a 25 percent of the sales
of homes in the U.S. are by
investors, who never intend to
live in the house, condominium,
townhouse, etc. They are simply
doing it as an investment, possi-
bly as a rental property, or to turn
a quick profit if possible.
In contrast to technology
stocks, there are compelling dif-
ferences with real estate: a limit-
ed supply; demand from
Americans as well as foreigners,
such as the Europeans; and the
fact that it is tangible. During the
technology craze, more than one
upstart company consisted of
nothing but a cubicle-sized office
with a bunch of computers
crammed inside. In fact, there
were several of these based on
Amelia Island.
And you also had the risk of
someone else providing the same
service as you from another
cubicle down the street. A pris-
tine chunk of oceanfront proper-
ty, for instance, draws few similar-
ities to technology investments.
The sustaining force behind
the real-estate explosion is the
Baby Boomers, who are gobbling
up second homes and vacation
homes even before they retire.
They simply believe it'll be
cheaper to buy now rather than
later.
You know, that lot next door
may be owned by a Baby
Boomer, not a European. But
they just may not own it for long.

adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.

Rising gas prices help


sink consumer confidence


University of Florida
Florida's consumer confidence
fell in March, reflecting concerns
about rising gas prices despite
relatively positive news about
healthy employment levels in the
state, University of Florida econ-
omists report.
The biggest drop came in the
component measuring percep-
tions of the U.S. economy over
the next year, which fell eight
points to 85, three points lower
than at the same time last year.
Other declines were recorded in
perceptions of U.S. economic con-
ditions over the next five years,
which fell three points to 85; per-
ceptions of future finances,
which slipped three points to 96;
and perceptions of personal'
finances now compared with a
year ago, which dropped two
points to 89.
Those declines were balanced
by a two-point hike in the com-
ponent measuring perceptions of
whether it is a good time to
buy big-ticket items, from 113 to
115.
"Consumers are probably
reacting this month to the spike
in gasoline prices," said Chris
McCarty, director of the survey
research center at UFs Bureau of
Economic and Business
Research, where the research


was conducted. "Recent economic
indicators suggest that employ-
ment levels in Florida are pretty
good compared to other states,
and sales data are positive.
However, it is hard not to notice
the higher prices at the
pump."
Energy costs will become even
more of an issue if prices remain
high as the weather gets warmer
and people start using their air
conditioners, he said.
There was a large difference
between low- and high-income
households this month in per-
ceptions of U.S. economic condi-
tions over the next year, the com-
ponent that fell the most,
McCarty said. Although house-
holds making less than $30,000 a
year registered a two-point
increase on this component,
households making more than
$30,000 registered a 13-point
decline, he said.
"This sharp decrease is prob-
ably due to recent losses in the
stock market, which have wiped
out gains from February," he said.
"Losses in the stock market
would affect higher income
households
disproportionately than lower
income households."
Barring some unforeseen
event, consumer confidence
among Floridians should remain


in the low 90s, he said.
"We don't expect big changes
in consumer confidence unless
there are significant changes in
the national economy or policy
changes," McCarty said. "We
expect oil prices to remain high,
at least for the next several
months, and interest rates to rise
as the Federal Reserve continues
to raise their rates. We also expect
employment gains at the present
level."
The research center conducts
the Florida Consumer Attitude
survey monthly. Respondents are
18 or older and live in households
telephoned randomly. The pre-
liminary index for March was
based on 442 responses. The
error rate is plus or minus 5 per-
cent.
Consumer confidence is
designed to help predict buying
patterns by measuring the mood
of consumers toward purchasing.
Although other economic indica-
tors also predict buying patterns,
consumer confidence tends to be
available sooner.
The index is benchmarked to
1966, so a value of 100 represents
the same level of confidence for
that year.
The value of the index is in
comparing changes over time
rather than looking at an isolated
month.

ly for the last three weeks exact-
ly where is top secret though
much of the film is being shot on
location in Jacksonville.
She said it's largely thanks to
Travolta that Fernandina was con-
sidered as a location. He has come
to know and love the area through
his attorney, Mark Ossi, of
Jacksonville, said Haney. "With that
rcl.ili,,n'hiip, he disclosed to the
production company that they
should take a look at various areas,"
she said.
The production will translate
into more than 300 room nights
locally, said Haney, "which is an
economic impact just from the bed
tax,"
"Room nights" is a term used
by hotels to refer to total business
booked, and the bed tax locally is 2
percent,
The film company also made a
donation to First Baptist Church

"This is very, very top-notch,"

to Fernandina hasn't been without
its bumps.
City staff denied a request from

Another request by Lonely

When a disaster hits, local busi-
nesses play a critical role in speed-
ing the recovery of the area that
has been impacted. But while the
physical damage may be quickly
cleaned up, the financial, emotion-
al and psychological effects from
disasters may be more long term -
especially for business owners. In
fact, for many businesses that have
experienced such a disaster, the
effects may last for years.
Following the impact of last
year's hurricanes, local business
owners, managers and employees

learn more about how to prepare for

Crane Island'the right way'
In response to the letter "You can't have it both
ways" (March 23), I would like to explain, with better
accuracy, the issue at hand.
Crane Island is an issue that has been debated
again and again. There is a strong likelihood, however,
that eventually, whether in the courts or otherwise,
it will be proven that Crane Island is not wetlands,
rather an upland no different than most of Amelia
Island. So, the focus should turn from whether or not
the owner of Crane Island can develop the property,
to how will they develop the property.
That is where Amelia Island Co. (AIC) enters the
picture. AIC is a genuine, environmentally friendly
developer. We pride ourselves on the preservation that
we've enacted on the island. For example, AIC initi-
ated setbacks along the beaches and marshes long
before they were required by the state. AIC also
helped fund the restoration of Centre Street and we
work with the county, state and federal government
to protect the beaches and wildlife of the island. Most
recently we preserved a historic cornerstone of
American Beach. A letter explaining the details of
this donation, is the letter the writer selectively quot-
ed out of context.
Na Na, an 8.5-acre dune, was donated in MaVynee
Betsch's honor to the National Park Service. It would
have been easy to turn the land over to the commu-
hity, see AIC's name in lights and walk away. But
what would become of the dune? The donation to
the National Park Service ensured that it would never
be disturbed. It took an act of the U.S. Congress and
the signature of President Bush to complete the trans-
fer. Even the letter writer would have to agree, it was
good for all the citizens of Nassau County.
Now, back to the main question, how will Crane
Island be developed? We hope, with AIC's influence.
The current zoning allows Crane Island owners 41
units, previous zoning allowed more, hence the law-
suit. AIC's allocation of 129 of our units to Crane
Island eliminates the need for a lawsuit and creates
no increase in density within the coastal high hazard
zone that covers all of Amelia Island (including Crane
Island).
The letter writer ignores thatAIC is helping here.
We will work with the developer (AIC is not the devel-
oper or owner) to preserve the character of the island.
AIC has a good track record: Amelia Island Plantation
has over 70 percent of the natural tree canopy after
over 30 years of development, countless wildlife habi-
tats and a more natural environment than virtually any-
where else on the island. At Brady Point Preserve,
where AIC could have placed more than 300 units, we
limited it to 76 and placed more than a third of the
property into a conservation easement never to be
touched. Who else would the citizens of Amelia Island
prefer influencing the developer? A "slash and burn,,
pave and plant" style company or an environmental-
ly conscious one that's been doing it "the right way"
for years!

Hazardous waste
9a16^ aB ,. i^rig Fernandina' *BearP^M
Massachusetts to help my Dad renovate his home. In
the course of cleaning out his garage I collected sev-
eral boxes of hazardous waste out of date insecticides,
solvents and household chemicals. During several


phone calls to Fernandina Beach and Nassau County
offices I was told that there are no local programs for
the disposal of this material. The best that one office
could suggest is that I contact a neighboring county
to see if they could help me.
This I did. A helpful individual with Duval County
said they would accept the hazardous material, but he
was clearly weary of calls from Nassau Country res-
idents seeking disposal services from Duval.
From this visitor's perspective, it seems that requir-
ing residents to make the 80-mile round trip to
Jacksonville is inviting less concerned individuals to
save themselves the trouble and deposit their haz-
ardous waste out of the back of their vehicles into
Egans Creek.

Logjammin'
Once again we were caught in another "log jam"
on A1A/200 "speedway" Friday afternoon. This
increasingly busy area between Amelia Concourse and
CR 107 needs to have the posted speed limit reduced
and strictly enforced by the police. Also, the cycle time
for the "yellow" light at these multiple traffic signals
should be lengthened to allow enough time for the dis-
tracted drivers among us to realize the light is about
to turn red.

Re: letters to the editor regarding "Log truck spill
scary," Feb. 18.
We who have always lived in Nassau County have
depended on the wood industry in one way or the
other for our livelihood. Since I have grown up and
married my husband, four sons and four grandsons
still depend on the wood industry and have their own
logging business. We do not drive antique trucks as
referred to in the letters, as most of these trucks cost
from $95,000 to over $100,000 per truck. The trucks
are kept in tip-top condition; the Department of
Transportation constantly stops and checks and if
there is a problem existing, the truck is grounded until
repaired. We also provide huge insurance coverage,
pay road taxes per truck and have permits for each
truck Most of us are professional business people just
the same as you are, we have paid house and land
taxes in Nassau County for years on end.
We are lifelong residents and we also hated to see
growth on the roadways as we have to drive on these
same roads and so do our families. We are also law-
abiding citizens and we provide many jobs to these
truck drivers that are screened and have to have
almost perfect commercial driver's licenses before
they can drive and we provide jobs on the equipment
in the woods. (We did move up from the chainsaws
and actually have equipment that cost us in the range
of over $100,000 per piece. We provide employment
to people that would otherwise be on the welfare sys-
tem instead of working and trying to make an honest
living.)

would restore


faith in county

We don't know if there was criminal intent or
gross mismanagement in county government, as
suggested by Nassau County Clerk of Court John
A. Crawford after learning of allegations made by
Commissioner Marianne Marshall.
We do know these are serious allegations that
deserve a full and complete external review. The
internal investigation planned by the county will
not be sufficient to assure public confidence.
Marshall has long railed against what she
terms "inaccurate" information provided to com-
missioners and has sought to conduct her own
investigations of projects she has questioned for
example, an Amelia Island boat ramp, Miner Road
construction and how these were handled by for-
mer county administrator Walt Gossett before he
was forced out.
Marshall has now identified a ques-tionable pay-

new assau county Judici Annex min ee. .
Crawford sent letters to Gov. Jeb Bush and State
Attorney Harry L Shorstein urging an investiga-
tion after learning of the matter.
Commissioners have appointed a fact-finding.
team that includes County Attorney Michael
Mullin, County Engineer Jos6 Deliz, County
Administrator Michael Mahaney, county
Administrative Services Director Cathy Lewis and
a representative to be named by Crawford from his
office.
Mullin said the committee would interview
Marshall and others, not under oath but with a
court reporter present to make a transcript "As
county attorney, I do not want, nor will I allow, any
cover-up or exaggeration of facts in a fact-finding
phase," he said. "The public will have no doubts at
the conclusion as to any alleged gross mismanage-
ment or improper conduct."
We fear, though, that the public will have
doubts, and that is why we think the county should
seek an authoritative and impartial outside panel
to determine the extent of the wrongdoing.
We may come to find there are innocent expla-
nations for the failure to complete the work. We
may find that Marshall is, as she has been accused
before, hyping the evidence for political purposes.
Crawford may be manipulating the circumstance
for political gain. Or there may be a case of gross
incompetence or criminal mischief at the heart of
the matter.
We don't know. The public doesn't know. But if
we are to remove this "shadow" over county gov-
ernment as Crawford has characterized it, then
we must have sunshine from outside the county to
do it.

VIEWPOINT/RoBERT M. WEINTRAUB/EAST NASSAU HOMEOWNERS' COUNCIL-


Stop A1A gridlock on Tuesday


Right now it takes about 10 minutes to drive
from the Shave Bridge to US 17 in Yulee,
not counting delays caused by daytime road
construction or the occasional log truck
mishap. If Nassau County officials permit the latest
developer attack on our quality of life, that trip will
take as much as 20 minutes with a gridlock condition
at Chester Road. When that happens, homebuyers
will go elsewhere and home values in east Nassau
will erode.
The latest atrocity to be proposed is an effort to
rezone 30 acres of industrial land along Chester Road
between A1A and Pages Dairy Road to high-density
residential. This will require a change in the Future
Land Use Map (FLUM) and violate the county's
Comprehensive Plan. A change to high-density resi-
dential will permit from 10 to 12 units per acre or 300
to 360 units. That would create from 1,700 to 2,100
automotive trips a day (Florida Department of
Transportation formula for townhouses; more for
apartments) on the three roads. Considering that it
will be adjacent to the large shopping center planned
for A1A just west of Chester Road it would make the
AlA/Chester Road intersection a nightmare gridlock.
This intersection is already facing a serious traffic
problem with some 3,000 housing units approved
along the new Amelia Concourse that will be feeding
enormous traffic into a highway already barely meet-
ing state standards. (The state transportation depart-
ment currently rates A1A service at a "D" level.) If
this high-density development is allowed to go for-
ward the gridlock we will face will make east Nassau
an undesirable area.in which to live.
This is the type of development that we must
oppose. There is a great deal of land west of US 17
and 1-95 where the infrastructure can handle high-
density development; Chester Road is not the place
for it. On Tuesday there will be a hearing before the
Planning and Zoning Board at 7 p.m. at the Yulee
meeting room. If we are to prevent this change we
need to have a large turnout with many people


High-density residential development
adjacent to the large shopping
center planned for AIA just west of
Chester Road would make the
AlA/Chester Road intersection a
nightmare gridlock.

speaking against it The Planning and Zoning Board
is dominated by developers and real estate interests
who will be prepared to approve this change. The
only way to get them to reject the request is to show
a large opposition to it.
If the Planning and Zoning Board approves the
request, Nassau County Commissioners will hold
their own hearing on April 25 at 7 p.m. But the com-
missioners are often told by the county attorney that
if they overrule the Planning and Zoning Board they
could be subject to legal action, so the commission-
ers, several of whom have received election financial
support from developer and real estate interests,
usually rubber stamp the planning board decision.
The time and place to stop this is at the Tuesday
planning board meeting.
The broader issue is the need for the county to
hold to its Comprehensive Plan and obey its concur-
rency ordinance, something county staff, the plan-
ning board and the commissioners often fail to do.
The Comprehensive Plan, which sets guidelines
for land use, has lofty goals: ". make Nassau
County a viable community... with minimal adverse
impact to the natural environment." Its primary
objective is to "correlate future land uses with the
appropriate environmental conditions and the avail-
ability of supporting infrastructure." One of the
many policies of the plan calls for "future develop-
ment to proceed only in accordance with. land uses


designated on the Future Land Use Map (FLUM)."
Another plan policy calls for discouraging FLUM
changes "that increase density." Another section
calls for ensuring that current hurricane evacuation
times are not adversely affected by population,
changes.
The FLUM was created by county planners and
consultants at great expense. Historic zoning maps
were used as a base and it was supposed to codify
zoning to meet state standards. An underlying princi-
ple of FLUM development was to establish a specific
population density for the county While reserving
land for industrial and commercial development
Pages Dairy Road is viewed as an industrial/com-
mercial route. There is a proposal to widen and
straighten Pages Dairy Road, extend it to Blackrock
Road and build a flyover to Amelia Island (in the
neighborhood of Gum Street and the Rayonier mill)
which will create the parallel road called for in the
comp plan. The proposed rezoning of the 30-acre
Chester Road tract flies in the face of all this plan-
ning and turns the comp plan's purpose on its head.
Hand-in-hand with the Comprehensive Plan is the
county's concurrency ordinance. This law, mandated
by the state legislature, says "public facilities and
services needed to support development shall be
available concurrent with the impact of such devel-
opment" Repeatedly, the county has allowed excep-
tions to this law (most recently the county approved
the 500-home Westwood project despite the fact that
it fails to meet the ordinance's requirements).
Without new east-west roads to ease the load on A1A
(or new recreation and water-management facilities)
there is no way a 360-unit development on the 30-
acre Chester Road industrial tract can meet the con-
currency ordinance.
Tuesday at 7 p.m. will be the moment for the resi-
dents of eastern Nassau to rise up and say "enough
is enough." A show of force is the only way to stop
this madness. I look forward to seeing all of you
there,

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30,2005 NEWS News-Leader


GAYTON Continued from 1A
about his marriage to a woman of
Irish-German heritage. "Whatever
attitude of heart (people) have, it
causes it to surface when they
meet us."
Gayton met Ellen, his wife of
34 years, in high school.
"I think we, just being together,
cause people to look at the situation
and see where their hearts are,"
she said. "When it's in your face,
it's like, 'What are my feelings? Do
I have a Christ-like attitude?'"
Bishop Gayton began examin-
ing his attitude about diversity in
. the church while serving as a chap-
lain for the Federal Bureau of
Prisons. Although he led weekly
church services, Gayton felt limit-
ed in his ability to provide a wor-
ship experience that all the inmates
could relate to.
"How is it that we serve one
God and I can't have a service that
everybody can be happy with?" he
asked himself.
The challenge of finding a way
to merge various worship tradi-
tions led him to develop an
approach called convergence the-
ology. Convergence, also referred
to as "a contemporary experience
of the church," blends sacramental,
evangelical and charismatic forms
of worship.
Sacramental traditions include
public reading of scripture and
weekly communion. Evangelical
practice places a high priority on
biblical exegesis or interpretation,
while the charismatic experience
includes clapping, shouting and
laying on of hands, Gayton said.
In six months after combining
the three, "I had the largest chapel
service in all the federal prisons


in the U.S.," he said.
The experience taught him that
to show "respect to the whole body
of Christ" he could not be narrow
personally, said Gayton, who was
raised in the Church of God in
Christ and became ordained under
that denomination. "I had to be
personally enlarged."
Gayton enlarged the cohver-
gence concept as founder of the
International Community of
Christian Churches. In 1983
Gayton left the Church.of God and
began an independent church.
Then, in 1992 he became pastor
of a "mega-church." Both congre-
gations transformed into racially
diverse memberships.
Even with his success growing
churches, Gayton fervently pur-
sues spiritual knowledge. He has
earned two doctorate degrees in
Bible philosophy and theology and
served as an adjunct professor at
the University of Buffalo. "I love
learning and studying," he said.
As a presiding bishop he super-
vises more than 400 churches, four
bishops, and travels the world con-
ducting religious leadership train-
ing.
"We're expecting great things,"-
Pam Miller said. She and her hus-
band Mark are members of Christ
the Redeemer. The Gaytons' lead-
ership and example is "what our lit-
tle island needs" because
Christians need to connect across
racial lines, she said. "I was thrilled.
We need more unity."
"I believe that it is his love for all
people and God that has given him
a particular ministry of bringing
unity... and bringing walls down
through just loving people,"
Michael McCranie said about
Gayton.

McCranie, the former senior
pastor at Christ the Redeemer.
asked Gayton if he would consider
becoming pastor. 1 just felt God
wanted me to sit under this man's
leadership." he said. McCranie
now serves as an associate pastor
at the church.
"We have churches that are
either black or while. It's a
tragedy." McCranie said. "They
don't worship together."
The fact that Gayton is African-
American has created an opportu-
nity for the church to learn, he
said.
"He can share things help
me grow and help the community
grow," McCranie said. "I'm excited
to have a church that is a multira-
cial church. I think there is a power
in that that this community needs."
"There is room for unity in the
body of Christ," said Ellen Gayton,
who will become ordained in the
near future. "I would hope that the
church would become reflective
of that"
But for there to be unity, there
must first be understanding, said

BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader
A Navy veteran of the Vietnam
war, Bill Burk of Fernandina Beach
shows a cherished letter of com-
mendation from Rear Adm. Don W.
Wulzen, Cmdr. Task Force 76, with
echoes by G.C. Stock, Captain, U.S.
Navy.
The letter is dated March 16,
1965, and is but one of approxi-
mately 15 letters of commendation
hanging high on the wall in the
room Burk calls the "I Love Me
Room." But the conversation is not
about Burk.
He cherishes that letter because
he said it appears to be the only
recognition by anyone of the land-
ing of the Marines at Da Nang,

Three months after the landing,
Burk got home, became a civilian
again, and worked for the CIAfor 27
years before retiring in 1993. But
through the 40 years that have
passed since the first landing in
Vietnam, he has not been able to
forget those who were left behind
on the beach.
"A lot of those guys were still
wading in the rice paddies and I

no one else in the country, to know
that nearly 1,000 young Marines

or five years ago, when he was work-

came in, and he had a Division ring

173rd was the first guys there," he
says. "But I straightened him out
and I know I am right because it
was my division that put them on the

"The truth is a lost page in his-

some way, we need to honor those
men, just as others have been hon-

to do. We have to recover that lost
page in history and be sure that the
names of all who were first to fight

by all of us," he says. "For that,
Fernandina is a good place to start"

Off-duty officers save man's life at YMCA


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader


Harold Bomar had no inkling
he was about to drop dead as he
worked out at the McArthur
Family YMCA on Feb. 25.
But thanks to the quick actions
of Lt. Thomas Tucker and Officer
Cory Williams and a nifty piece
of equipment Bomar, 78, is not
only alive, but well enough to talk
about it.
Both men were off-duty and at
the Y when they heard a loud
crashing noise.
"I thought one of the kids had
knocked over the water cooler,"
said Tucker.
But it was Bomar hitting the
ground hard as he had a massive
heart attack.
Tucker, with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, and Williams, with
the Fernandina Beach Police
Department, sprang into action.
As Bomar turned deep purple
and stopped breathing, Williams
prepared to do CPR.
Tucker grabbed the automat-
ed defibrillator he had noticed
months ago hanging on the wall
at the Y, applied the pads to
Bomar's chest, followed the
prompts and revived him.
Bomar's wife Judy said their


'He would not have
made it. It was a major
heart attack.'
AJUDY OMAR


quick response, and the defibrilla-
tor, made the difference between
life and death for her husband.
"He wasn't there 15 minutes
and he dropped dead," she said.
"He would not have made it. It was
a major heart attack."
Harold Bomar was taken to
Baptist Medical Center in
Jacksonville where he underwent
heart surgery for three blocked
arteries and now has a defibrillator
with a pacemaker implanted in his
chest.
Thanks to Tucker and Williams,
he was revived so quickly that he
didn't suffer any brain damage.
At a reunion at their Fernandina
Beach home last week, Judy and
Harold Bomar and daughter Amy
Thompson thanked the two men.
"I'm glad to see you, glad to
shake your hand and glad to thank
you," said Harold Bomar, who has
no recollection of the incident.
"You did exactly what should

he said. "I was
unlucky to have
the heart attack.
But I was lucky I
had it when I had '
it where I had it. I
was lucky you all .
were there and Crosby
that I recovered."
For Fernan-
dina Beach Firefighter Gary
Crosby, the case illustrates what
he and his firefighter son Andy
have been. teaching the public
since 1996 as the owners of First
Coast CPR.
Automated external defibrilla-
tors (AEDs) which are small,
easy to use, run on lithium batter-
ies and now cost as little as $1,600
- save lives.
A few years ago, "The chance of
surviving a cardiac arrest was 20 to
25 percent," he said. "Now it is 75
percent. That's 3 out of 4 instead of
1 out of 4. The AEDs work that
efficiently."
Both Tucker and Williams are
trained in CPR, but neither had
ever used a defibrillator or had to
revive anybody.
"It's really easy, to be honest
with you," said Tucker. He said the
machine talked him through the
'entire procedure while Y staff
called 911. Bomar was breathing
though still unconscious when
Fernandina Beach Fire/Rescue
arrived. Ironically, it was Andy
Crosby who responded to the call.
Gary Crosby said the defibril-
lators are becoming more com-
mon in public places. Last year the
Nassau County School District pur-
chased them for each of its schools,
and more gyms, restaurants and
airports are stocking them, said
Crosby. Legislation is also pend-
ing to have defibrillators placed in
all patrol cars, he said, since offi-
cers are often the first responders.
And add to that list Judy Bomar.
S"I think I'm going to get one
myself, not just for Harold. I would
use it on'anyone," she said.

Harold Bomar sits between his lifesavers, officer Cory Williams, left, and Lt. Thomas Tucker.
Using an automated defibrillator, they revived Bomar after he had a massive heart attack and
dropped dead at the YMCA. "These gentlemen deserve some recognition," said Bomar's wife
Judy. "They literally saved his life. They shocked his heart and jolted it."

A life and death difference
According to the American Heart Association, about 220,000 people die each year from
sudden cardiac arrest That's 600 a day. or an average of 25 per hour.
Lightweight, inexpensive and easy to use, automated external defibrillators offer the best
chance of survival in such cases, according to the association's website, www.american
heart.org. As a result, the American Heart Association has launched a campaign to ensure
automated external defibrillators are placed appropriately throughout communities.

Extra hour of sunlit



hazardous for skin


An extra hour of sunlight
requires an extra hour of sun pro-
tection.
As Daylight Saving Time begins
Sunday, The Skin Cancer
Foundation reminds everyone to
always use a broad-spectrum SPF
15 or greater sunscreen product as
a part of a daily grooming routine.
"After a long, cold and dark win-
ter, Daylight Saving Time is some-
thing we all look forward to," says
Perry Robins, president and
founder of The Skin Cancer
Foundation, in a press release.
"However, it's important to remem-
ber to keep skin protected, even
when the sun may not feel that
strong. Just two to three minutes of
sun exposure can begin to break
down the collagen that keeps skin
firm."


Men are less likely to put
on sunscreen than
women are, and more of
them get skin cancer.


Research shows fewer than 33
percent of adults, adolescents and
children routinely use sun protec-
tion. However, the same ainount of
. time spent damaging skin can be
spent saving it by applying a pro-
tective sunscreen or moisturizer
containing sunscreen. Not surpris-
ing, men are less likely to put on
sunscreen than women are, and
more of them get skin cancer. The


statistics speak for themselves:
Men over age 40 spend the
most time outdoors and get the
highest annual doses of solar ultra-
violet radiation.
One of four persons who
develop skin cancer is under the
age of 40, mainly men.
Skin cancer is the number one
form of cancer for men over 50,
ahead of prostate, colon and lung
cancer.
The Skin Cancer Foundation
isconcerned exclusively with the
world's most prevalent malignancy
- cancer of the skin. The mission of
this non-profit organization is to
increase public and professional'
awareness about the prevention,
detection and treatment of skin can-
cer. For more information, visit

Today's media often refers to a "trainer" when talking about an athlete's ,
injury. This fails to give full credit to the qualified medical professional '
attending to the athlete and can be confusing to the general public. Instead,
athletic trainer is a more accurate description. Certified athletic trainers have, I
at minimum, a bachelor's degree, usually in sports medicine, athletic training,
health, or exercise science. They have fulfilled the requirements for
certification established by the National Athletic Trainers Association Board
of Certification (NATABOC). The certification examination administered by
NATABOC consists of a written portion with multiple choice questions; an
oral/practical section that evaluates the skill components within athletic
training; and a written simulation test, consisting of athletic training situations a a
paralleling-with real-life decision making. The examination covers a variety of I
topics within the five practice domains of athletic training: prevention of
-orthopedic injuries, recognition, evaluation, and immediate care of orthopedic M O N H
injuries and illnesses, rehabilitation and reconditioning of orthopedic injuries, rehabilitation
health care administration, professional development and responsibility. Once

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

in a wooded area near Pages Dairy
Road in Yulee. One of the victims
is a minor.

course with him while they were
alone together in a vehicle.

tim, but said it was consensual.

viding the victim with alcohol.

Statewide phone scam reported


LIL SPINKS
14esi Nassau Correspondent
The Florida Highway Patrol has
issued an alert about a telephone
scam throughout Florida.
Lt Bill Leeper said callers
impersonating highway patrol
troopers as well as other law
enforcement officers have been
phoning citizens and telling them a
family member has been in a traf-
fic accident
"The con artist then urges the
phone owner to dial either *72 or
72# in order to speak with a doctor.
By doing this, the phone owner
will unknowingly permit the caller
on the other end to use their
phone line for making local or
long distance telephone calls which
will ultimately be billed to the
phone owner's account," said
Leeper.
Anyone who suspects they have
fallen victim to the scam should
contact their local telephone com-
pany to learn how to remove call
forwarding from their telephone


system, Leeper said.
He said most of the phone calls
have originated from pay phones
within correctional facilities in the
Miami-Dade area.
Some of those facilities have
started playing recordings on all
collect calls made from their pay
phones that advise they are from a
correctional facility.
"Please note that if your tele-
phone is equipped with caller ID,
these calls begin with (305) 459-
XXXX and the ID name will be TCG
payphones," said Leeper.
However, other numbers may
be used, he added.
Leeper said TCG is the abbre-
viation of the company that regu-
lates payphones in correctional
facilities.
Victims should immediately
contact the law enforcement
agency the caller claimed to rep-
resent, said Leeper. -
Anyone receiving a suspicious
call is asked to note the caller's
voice, request a call back number
and use the caller ID feature if


they have -that on their tele-
phone.
. Leeper said FHP does not noti-
fy family members of crash victims
with collect calls from pay tele-
phones, nor would it ask anyone
to dial a *72 or 72# number.
Family members of those killed
in crashes are notified in person
within the state, he said.
For those from out of state, the
FHP notifies the local state police or
other law enforcement agency to
notify the next of kin, said
Leeper.
The nearest FHP office is in
Jacksonville. If an FHP officer is
being impersonated, call (904) 695-
4115, ext. 233. This is the number
for Troop G, which covers Nassau,
Baker, Bradford, Clay, Duval,
Flagler,' Putnam, St. Johns and
Union counties.
If the caller claims to be an offi-
cer with another law enforcement
agency, the person should dial 411
to get the number of that agency,
said Leeper.

Man had child pornography


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
A Chester Road man charged
with 10 counts of possession of
child pornography pleaded guilty to
two counts in a plea agreement
March 17 and was sentenced to 30
days in the Nassau County Jail with
credit for time served.
According to the State
Attorney's Office, James Warren
Groover, 58, was caught as part of
a larger investigation involving the
FBI dating back to 2003. He was
arrested on a warrant on July 14
that year.
"He had in his possession
pornographic pictures" of children,
said public prosecutor Darin
Gardner. The FBI seized his
computer for examination by its
forensic team, he said. But what-
ever the larger FBI investigation
involved, apparently "it never
panned out," said Gardner.
"We did conduct an investiga-
tion" with the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office, said FBI Special
Agent Douglas Astralaga of the
Jacksonville field office. He would
not elaborate or talk about
specifics of the case against
Groover. "I'm not sure how we
came into possession of his
:(Groover's) particular information,"
he said, adding that normally they
are tipped off by a complaint "We
just pursue this as much as possi-
ble." -
Groover whose address is
listed as 96638 Chester Road on

Department of Corrections vigor-
ously enforces, said spokesperson
Debbie Buchanan.
"Our officers can go into his
house. We don't tell him when
we're coming, we can just go into
his house and look," she said. "We
have zero tolerance. If we find any
violations of the terms of his
supervision, we will go to court and
get a warrant for his arrest."
Buchanan said because Groover
is on sexual offender probation, the
department will watch him more


closely than regular parolees.
"We will have greater contact
with him. We supervise them much
closer and they can't reside within
1,000 feet of a school, playground or
day-care," she said.
As part of his sentencing in
Nassau County Circuit- Court
Groover also was ordered to pay
$5,000 to the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office, S5,000 to Micah's
Place, S5.000 to Barnabas Center
and 8370 in court costs.
Buchanan said anybody who
sees a registered sex offender
breaking the conditions of their
probation ot sentence, or doing
anything wrong, should call the
local office of the Department of
Corrections at 277-7250.

B SECTION


Referees


should


neverbe


partof


the story

m I the only one
sick and tired of ref-
erees making them-
selves part of sports
stories? Tom O'Neill is the lat-
est zebra to grab headlines by
single-handedly dictating the
outcome of a game Friday.
O'Neill ignored a foul and
instead called traveling on a
Villanova's Allan Ray to all
but end the Wildcats' chances
of upsetting top-seed North
Carolina in the NCAA basket-
ball regional semi-finals.
Replays clearly showed Ray
took two steps on a lay-up in
the waning seconds of the
game. The call was way off.
"I thought the ref called
the foul, but he called the
walk," Ray told the
Associated Press. "I feel we
should have never put our-
selves in that position anyway.
I can't say that's the reason
we lost, because of that one
play."
But the fact is a referee's
poor call made the other 39-
plus minutes a moot point.
I'm not sure whether
O'Neill was wearing baby
blue boxers under his uni-
form or whether he just
muffed the call. But I am sure
Villanova fans who attended
the game would have rather
seen a miraculous play by
Carolina, not a whistle blow-
er, send their team home...
Headline on cbssports
line.com last weekend:
"Spurrier Looks to Return
Fun to S.C."
The gist of the article was
that Spurrier has abandoned
his arrogant ways and has
learned to respect others.
"Maybe I was a little arro-
gant. Maybe I ran my mouth
more than I should," the 01'
Head Ball Coach said.
"Human nature comes down
and causes you maybe to feel
you've got more answers than
you really do when you've got
a real good team.
"So, hopefully, I've learned
some humility and great
respect for all coaches."
Sounds to me like the Evil
Genius might be trying to lull
his rivals to sleep...
Meanwhile, new
University of Florida Coach
Urban Meyer seems to have
inherited Spurrier's old reck-
less abandon. During a recent
post-practice interview, the
40-year-old responsible for a
renewed sense of hope in
Gainesville told reporters,
"The object of the game is not
to turn that damn thing over."
Meyer was talking about how
important it will be for UF QB
Chris Leak to make big plays
without losing possession of
the ball. Can September get
here quickly enough?...
Defense has reportedly
been the highlight of Florida
State's spring practices so far,
with defensive end Kamerion
Wimbley and noseguard
Clifton Dickson competing
for starting positions on the
D-line. Wimbley reportedly
recorded three sacks in the
Seminoles' first scrimmage
Thursday, while Dickson had
a sack and a fumble recovery.
Is anyone surprised that FSU
defensive coordinator Mickey
Andrews will again field a
strong bunch?...
This just in: Don't bother
trying to buy a Randall Gay
(New England Patriots' star)
jersey from NFLshop.com.
Because when you type the
word "Gay" in the box to indi-
cate the personal lettering
you want on the back of your
jersey, you will be informed
"this field should not contain
a naughty word." Wonder if
you can buy a Harry Colon
(former Jaguars' player) jer-
sey there?

Pirates so

BETH JONES
News-Leader
Weather wasn't a baseball fan last
week. Rain and fog plagued the annual
Diamond Classic hosted by the Fernan-
dina Beach High School Pirates. Games
were suspended, some canceled and the
brackets were juggled.
But the Pirates weathered the storm,
picking up a pair of wins a 9-6 win
over Orange Park on opening night
March 23 and Saturday's 2-1 squeaker
over Gainesville High School's Hurri-
canes.
The win over Orange Park should
have pitted the Pirates
against Bartram Trail
on Friday, but a match-
up against the defend-
ing champs never
materialized because
of the weather. So,
there were no trophies
handed at tourna-
t ment's end and no
champion declared.
Dickinson But you wouldn't
have guessed it,
Saturday night as the
Pirates (7-6) relished a win over
Gainesville (11-2).
Trailing 1-0 after Gainesville scored
a run in the top of the fourth, the Pirates
battled to put a run on the board. Hunter
Burbank singled in the bottom of the'
fourth, but was stranded on first.
Fernandina couldn't manage another,
hit until the bottom of the sixth inning.
Senior Brett Moore (.385) singled to get
on base, but was picked off at first.
In the bottom of the seventh, sopho-
more Chris Conley (.385) singled and
senior Will Taylor's double sent him
home for the tying run. Junior Trey
Spencer, pinch running for Taylor,
scored the winning run when Blaine
Dickinson, junior third baseman, sin-
gled to left field for the RBI and the win.
Kevin Beck (2-2) went the distance on
the mound tor-the Pirates. The sopho-
more struck out four and gave up three
hits and a run. He walked two.
Ryan Estes picked up the win over
Orange Park and is now 2-3 on the sea-
son.
The Pirates rebounded from a pair of

Lady Pirates


.2-2 in tourney

The Fernandina Beach High School girls softball
team went 2-2 in a tournament at Wolfson last week.
The Lady Pirates picked up a pair of wins on March
21 but suffered two losses on March 22.
The Lady Pirates opened with 9-0 shutout over
Englewood. FBHS collected eight hits to Englewood's
two. Brittany Turner was the winning pitcher and
top hitters for FBHS were Megan Thrift and Wooda
Smith with a pair of singles each. Kayla Mercer,
Whitney Hudson, Caitlyn Cheshire and Melanie
Williamson had a hit apiece.
FBHS topped host Wolfson 7-1 the same day. Dee
Dee DeBerry picked up the win, striking out five and
walking two. The Lady Pirates had 11 hits with Cassie
Justyn leading the way with a trio of singles. Thrift had
a home run and Smith had an in-park homer. Kenan
Roland doubled and DeBerry, Dana Sanders, Hannah
Crews, Cheshire and Ashley Adams all singled for
FBHS.
On the second day of the tourney, the Lady Pirates
faced cross-county rival West Nassau. The Lady
Warriors prevailed 4-0.
FBHS (7-8) mustered three hits off Katie Lawrence,
who struck out eight and walked two. Thrift, Smith and
Roland had the hits for FBHS.
Turner pitched six of seven innings for FBHS.
She gave up four hits and walked six. DeBerry gave
up three hits in the final inning.
"I thought we played a solid game against West
Nassau," FBHS Coach Lesley Slaughter said.
The Pirate defense played error free.
FBHS fell 8-0 to Mandarin in the Lady Pirates'
final outing of the tournament
"It was a great game without the third inning,"
Slaughter said. "It is a 1-0 ballgame if you take away
that horrible inning."
FBHS committed four of their nine fielding errors
in the third inning.
"It was the worst fielding by Lady Pirates in my two
years here," Slaughter said. "But they did well at the
plate against both West Nassau and Mandarin."
The Lady Pirates held Mandarin's Mustangs to
just four hits while managing three hits of their own.
Thrift, Sanders and Roland had singles.
"I was very pleased with their performance in
both games against two of the top teams in our area,"
Slaughter said.
Turner pitched the first two innings and the fourth
through sixth for FBHS, giving up just one hit.
DeBerry pitched the third inning and gave up the
other three.
Before the tourney, FBHS beat Palatka 4-1 on
March 18.
'This was a big win for the Lady Pirates," Slaughter
said.
DeBerry was the winning pitcher. She struck out
five and walked no one. The Pirates had eight hits and
Palatka mustered just two. Thrift had three singles,
DeBerry had a pair of doubles and Williamson,
Sanders and Mercer each had singles.

other with chalk. Even students who are wheelchair
bound and/or physically impaired will be able to par-
ticipate.

Long Point ladies host member-guest tournament


St. Patrick must have been proud of his handi-
work on March 17. The Irish have never played in
worse weather than the 92 women who participated
in Long Point's Member-Guest tournament. Players
were wet, cold and steadfastly trying to hold on to
our clubs after about 14 holes when the pros were
"gracious enough" to halt the debacle.
The first nine holes played in the shotgun for-
mat were used as determining the winners.
The winning team of Dee Sullivan, Donna
Wickensimer, Tish Moyer and Barbara Coffee was
an astonishing 12 under net for nine holes. This is a
repeat performance for this team.
Marti Cain, Leslie Pierpont, Illene Kaufman and
Linda Scott won the low gross with only 6 over par
for nine holes.
There were three flights with the first flight win-
ners being Patt Corbin, Mary Poole, Susan
Fernlund and Adrienne Romie. The runners-up
were Deborah Phelan, Laurie Potter, Stevie Botte
and Sarah Ramsey.
Flight 2 winners were Jean Platte, Pat Haley,
Sally Woodworth and Nancy Voss. Runners-up
were Ginny Ardia, Ann Higbee, Alice Messina and
Lois Schwinger.
The winners of flight 3 were Suzanne Comeau,
Phyllis Pennel, Anne Friend and Celia Kirk. The
runners-up were Barbara Patton, Ashley Dewling,
Merrilee Chamberlain and Gail Noyes.
Winners and non-winners alike enjoyed a dry
luncheon in The Palmetto Room at The Ocean Club
beginning with a rum punch to celebrate the island
fare theme.

Men's blitz
Seventy-two players came out on Wednesday to
take advantage of the one good day for playing in
the Fernandina Beach Men's Golf Association blitz
as Mother Nature continued to rain on the days the
blitz is played.
Tom Purvis (84) and Doug Morris (87) shared
individual honors at plus 9. Tom Harmon had an
82, good for plus 8 and third place.
Purvis and Morris were teamed together and
their plus 9s were enough to offset the minus 5s
turned in by Jack Sipes (90) and Ray Huskey (93),
enabling the team finish plus 8 and claim first
place.
Two teams shared second place at plus 6 -
Bobby Burnette (88, minus 3), Kenny Pickett (83,
plus 4), Don Hart (89, plus 1), Ray Fino (91, plus 4)
and Charles Benefield (102, plus 1), Ed Hunter (89,
plus 2), Charles Helenbrook (91, even), Tom Gray
(82, plus 3).
There was also tie for fourth at plus 4 involving
the teams of Rudy Campanale (98, plus 1), Craig
Flowers (85, plus 1), Ron Dandurand (95, minus 5),
Michael Kaufman (82, plus 7) and Charles
Kicklighter (89, plus 1), Lew Akins (94, minus 2),
Abjorn Tefre (88, plus 4), Stan Miller (90, plus 1).
There was no blitz on Friday.

Breakfast mixer
J.P. Kreger had another good Saturday morning
as he once again headed a field of more than 30
players in the FBMGA Saturday morning breakfast


GOLF NEWS

mixer, shooting a 77, good for plus 7 points.
There was a tie for all the remaining places at
plus 3 by Steve Johnson (71), Rudy Campanale
(90), Stan Miller (87), Jack Sipes (82), Jim
Robertson (85), Mike Lovejoy (83) and Fred
Boatright (81).
Following the completion of the mixer, the quar-
terly shootout between the top 10 winners of the
quarter took place. Continuing his fine play, Kreger
came in first, followed by Jim Greenwood, Ronnie
Boatright, Sherman Scott, Campanale, Michael
Kaufman, Eric Hughes, Robertson, Jack Croake
and Charles Tammany.
Association members are again reminded that
yearly dues are now past due and must be paid by
Thursday to be eligible to play in the Club
Championship tournament. After that date, handi-
caps will no longer be computed by the city pro
shop.
There are two upcoming tournaments with sign-
up sheets in the pro shop. They are the couples
tournament (best ball) and the Masters tourna-
ment where each player picks a pro participating
on the weekend in the Masters tournament being
held in Augusta, Ga.

Ladies play odd and even
March 22 turned out to be a race to beat the rain
and most succeeded in the Fernandina Beach
Women's Golf Association weekly event. The game
of the day was odd or even.
Linda Scott and JaVene Lamb tied for first place
with a score of 34. Donna Dandarand and Carol
Minogue tied for third with 34.5 in Flight A. In B
flight, Reginna Brennan came in the winner with
27.5 followed by Jeannette Cayouette with 34 and
Robin Ritchey at 34.5. C flight found Peggy Rusk in
first with 34.5. Second was Nancy Speck with 35,
and tied for third were Wyn Adams and Mary
Roesch, coming in with 36. D flight didn't complete
the round before the rains came so they decided to
call it a tie among all players.
The ladies will host their annual golf invitational
on Tuesday with a 9 a.m. shotgun start at the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club. The format is better
ball of the twosome. Entry fee is $60 per player.
The field is limited to 48 teams.
Contact Jayne Paige or the FBGC pro shop for
entry forms at 277-7370.

Hole-in-one
A pair of golfers netted a hole-in-one this month
at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club. Kevin Lynn
aced the No. 3 south hole with a four wood on
March 12 and Willie Ellison aced the No. 3 north
with a seven iron on March 11.

Roland. The parade begins at 11
a.m. on Centre Street
Tuesday will be Family Day at
the tournament with Tennis on

Children and pros will participate
in a variety of interactive games
and activities. USA Team Nassau
members will be participating in
both events.


In what seems to be a recurring theme on the PGA Tour this season,
Mother Nature is having more of a say on the final outcome. For the 7th
time in 13 events, a weather delay stopped play at one point or another
at THE PLAYERS Championship. The long rain delays at the TPC at
Sawgrass course mean that no winner of the event has been determined
as of press time. In fact, the third round was just getting started when
rain washed out the remainder of play Sunday. As a result, tournament
officials are hopeful to get the final two rounds of play in Monday to
determine the champion. No player had completed more than 11 holes in
the third round and the lead was being held by Joe Durant and Luke
Donald, both of whom are at 11-under-par. Tiger Woods barely main-
tained his streak of consecutive cuts made, finishing round two at 1-


under-par and right on the cut line.

March 31. 1931 One of the all-
time greats on the Senior PGA Tour
was born on this date in Shreveport,
La. Miller Barber has won a total of
24 times on the Senior PGA Tour,
including one PGA Seniors'
Championship and three U.S.
Senior Opens. Barber was also a
prominent player on the PGA Tour
during the 1960 and 1970s. Known
as "Mr. X", Barber accumulated 11
victories in his PGA Tour career.


Putting when you are not on
the putting surface can be a
different task, but it is the
S proper shot in certain
Instances. The first situation
is when the ball is sitting
down slightly off the green
and the fairway has been
mowed tight. When the ball is
settled down, your tendency is to scoop the
ball out. The putter, with no loft, allows you
to.make better contact with the golf ball. A
sandy lie off the green is always best to use
your putter. If you chip the ball with a often
club off a sandy lie,, your chances of hitting
a fat shot are increased greatly. The final
chance to use your putter off the green is if
you simply have no confidence in your
chipping game. If you are in a pressure sit-
uation, the putter could be your best bet to
get a shot on the green and near the hole.

Sailing club holds


regatta for

The Amelia Island Sailing Club
held its annual St. Patrick's Day
Regatta on March 12.
The race, sponsored again this
year by O'Kane's Irish Pub, was
run in the Cumberland Sound
under the threat of small craft
warnings with winds forecast to 30
knots with higher gusts.
Four boats decided to brave
the tough conditions and an excit-
ing race ensued. The boats start-
ed off the downtown marina, sail-
ing down the channel and then
north towards Kings Bay, round-
ing several green (for the occa-
sion) markers along the way.
The sailboats, ranging from 30
to 38 feet in length, were heeled
over and tossed about by the gust-
ing westerly winds and an outgo-
ing tide which, because of the


*t. Patricks

wind, was running about 3 knots.
The first place boat, Skimmer,
skippered by Graeme Nichol and
his first rate crew, completed the
12.1-mile course in 83 minutes.
Breathing down his stern most of
the way and finishing only 10 sec-
onds later, was Coy Mistress skip-_
pered by Bill and Lin Bass. John
and Gale Burns on Mast Con-
fusion crossed three minutes later
followed closely by Butch Beard
on Cheese Boat
After adjusting for local hand-
icaps, the official winner was Coy
Mistress, followed by Cheese
Boat, Skimmer and Mast
Confusion.
The next race will be held April
9 in the ocean to Nassau Sound
and is Sponsored by the Amelia
Island Yacht Basin.

OUTDOORS


Spinners




for redfish


t was horrible weather for
fishing, particularly backwa-
ter fishing. The winds had
been blowing for two ,
straight days and the tempera-.
ture had not risen over 58 ,
degrees, making long boat rides
miserable and catching fish a
real challenge.
With this in mind, profession-
al redfish teams from all over
Florida gathered at Sister's
Creek boat ramp and checked
out for a day of competitive
angling on March 19. It was the
final leg of the Redfish Cup Q-
Series events where 15 top red-
fish teams would qualify for the
upcoming Redfish Cup tourna-
ment trail
Some of the teams wore ski
masks and cold weather suits in
preparation for the cold boat
ride. My son, Terry David, and I
were also well protected from
the cold as we gunned our boat
for some of Fernandina Beach's
prime redfish waters. We ran
side-by-side with Bill Pittman and
his partner, Charles Keigley, also
from Fernandina Beach. We both
passed the Fernandina fishing
team of Larry Boatwright and
John Cascone, also of
Fernandina Beach.
All three local fishing teams
had high hopes of winning the
first-place prize and giving some
recognition for sponsors.
Most teams found the fishing
slow with the cold weather condi-
tions, but fortunately for all three
Fernandina teams, we all fared
well.
Cascone and Boatwright
weighed in 9.62 pounds of red-
fish for 14th spot, Pittman and
Keigly weighed in 10.71 pounds
for eighth spot, while Terry
David Lacoss and I weighed in
12.87 pounds for the fourth spot
"We caught all of our fish on
Terminator spinner baits,"
Pittman said. "We wish we could
^hay pt afew f needs' alt.:.
size limit, but it just didn't work
out."
Terry David and I pulled into
a area where big reds were hold-
ing for several days, but the cold
weather had moved most of the
reds out into deep water. The
tide was also falling from the


marsh and
the reds
were staging
in a small
slough next
to a oyster
bar. T.D.
made two
casts and
landed two
Terry Lacoss reds that
... weighed
almost 13
OUTDOORS pounds
within five
minutes of our arrival, then the
action stopped completely. The
reds had moved off from the
slough into deep water.
Call it luck if you wish. Both
of us agreed that the fast Triton
boat had gotten to our fish just in
time to catch our limit One
minute later and we would have
gone back to the scales with a
pair of much smaller fish that we
had managed to catch later that
morning.
Chaz Adams and Craig
Etherage of Ponte Vedra Beach
also used Terminator in-line spin-
ners and took first place with a
total weight of 13.84 pounds. The
skilled pair of redfish anglers will
join 14 more qualifying teams to
fish the Redfish Cup in May.

77-pound drum landed
Anthony Watson purchased a
bucket of blue crabs from
Leaders and Sinkers and
motored to the tip of the St
Marys south jetty rocks on
March 20 and landed a 77-pound
black drum within a few minutes
of angling. He returned to
Leaders and Sinkers by 1 p.m.
and weighed in the current lead-
ing black drum in the Nassau
Sport Fishing Association's black
drum fishing tournament

safety and outdoor skills.
This year, the camp offers five
one-week sessions with all new
programs beginning June 19.
The primary goal of the camp
program is to provide children
with the necessary skills and
knowledge to become better
sportsmen and women, while
instilling an awareness of firearm
safety, conservation and wildlife
stewardship. In addition,
campers will fish, canoe, swim,
hike and participate in many
other outdoor activities.
Tuition is $295 per camper
per week and includes lodging,
food, program materials and
instruction for each session.
Each week-long session is divid-
ed into four groups based on
their individual focus: Wild about
Wildlife, Wet and Wildlife,
' Hunting and Hunter Safety and
Expedition. All programs are
new or significantly revised in
' format and scope from previous
years.
"Campers in Wild about
Wildlife, a new program this
year, will have a chance to go
wild exploring'nature," said
Cardinal Collins, director of the

'They will learn about wildlife
management and enjoy many
camp activities including basic
wilderness survival and field
first-aid training, canoeing, fish-
ing, hiking, shooting sports and
other hands-on outdoor pro-
grams."
For those who can't resist the
water, the camp offers another
new program, aptly named Wet
and Wildlife.
'This program gets into the
fun of fishing, marine ecology
and boating safety. In addition to
the traditional camp activities
already described above, Wet
and Wildlife campers will have
the opportunity to become certi-
fied in the FWC's Boater Safety
Course," Collins said.
For the intermediate level
camper, the camp offers the
Hunting and Hunter Safety
group.
"These campers will learn
about wild game and its habitats,
and apply this knowledge to
developing ethical hunting skills.
Then they will have a chance to
get their hunter safety certifica-
tion. They will receive firearm

The final program is for
advanced campers who have
already completed a hunter safe-
ty course.
"The Expedition group is
designed for the camper with an
avid interest in the outdoors who
already has successfully complet-
ed the hunter safety course,"
Collins said. "Expedition is an
outdoor adventure, including a
trip into the forest for two days of
primitive camping. Before leav-
ing base camp, campers will pre-
pare for this experience by learn-
ing the fundamentals of
wilderness survival, orienteer-
ing, backpacking and campsite
preparation."

The ultimate reality show is on the porch


For more than four years I
have written a weekly col-
umn. When I first pitched
the idea of a column
chronicling the ups and downs of
life on a little island off the north-
east coast of Florida, I was asked
to suggest a byline. My response
was immediate.
From The Porch. I didn't hesi-
tate. Somehow the image of sit-
ting on a porch and musing about
my charmed life was a perfect fit
It remains a perfect fit.
My porch is where I go to take
time-outs from a hectic schedule.
My time-outs aren't the kind
required of misbehaving children
- mine are rewards. A cool drink
in hand, I take time to sit and
catch my breath. Three fans slow-
ly circulate, creating a welcome if
manufactured breeze. Beyond my
porch spreads an open stage of
marsh grasses offering endless


performance opportunities for
herons, pelicans and hawks.
The porch is my favorite place
to read. I stretch out on the wick-
er love seat with my latest read in
hand. No phone, no radio or tele-
vision. More often than not the
book ends up resting on my
stomach as I take a quiet nap.
If a friend stops by we gravi-
tate to the porch and settle in to a
space that allows for intimate and
unhurried conversation.
The porch is where Big Guy
and I catch up at the end of the
day. As we talk we watch as the
marsh bathed in the golden red
light of late day slowly darkens.
I have strong porch memories
from my childhood. A big sprawl-
ing porch off the back of my
childhood home was more a liv-
ing room than the more formal
official living room on the street
side. That's were we would gath-


er on hot
muggy
ern sum-
mer nights.
My
grandnioth-
er's old
Baltimore
Victorian
house had
a wrap-
Dickie Anderson around
... porch
where she
FROM THE rocked as
PORCH she sang
"Froggy
Went A-Courting" to her grand-
children and later her great-
grandchildren. There was a rock-
ing chair that was clearly her
chair. She never forgot a single
verse and there were lots. If the
child was small enough they were


bounced in time to the traditional
rhyme.
When I was growing up our
family rented a house on the
coast of North Carolina each
summer. The small cottage had a
tiny box of a screened porch. It
was on the ocean side of the
house and a Coleman lantern
flickered in the corner and the
only noise other than our voices
was the soft roar of the ocean so
close at hand. The darkness was
total.
Nobody thought much about
the front porch when most
Americans had them and used
them.
The great American front
porch was just there, open and
sociable, an unassigned part of
the house that belonged to every-
one and no one, a place for family
and friends to pass the time. They
went away with the advent of cars


and noise and dirt and air con-
ditioning. People left their porch-
es and retreated into the cool
dark of their houses and watched
television.
Now porches are being redis-
covered. New housing develop-
ments are striving to incorporate
elements that bring back tradi-
tions associated with family -
town squares, neighborhoods
that invite strolling and, of
course, porches. ,
Yes, porches are back with
wicker furniture and porch
swings. Natural breezes instead
of the hum of air conditioners,
birds flitting, dogs barking, cats
hunting, butterflies flitting- the
ultimate reality show.
Dickie Anderson's latest book is
Porch Plenitude: Feeling Good 4
Every Day. Copies are available
for purchase at the News-Leader,
511 Ash St.

FLORIDA'S PREMIER ISLAND RESORT"
iFI) FirIt C',a l igh~. *N Amelia I.liarJ FL 3201-
it^ t VI MC 'A\" DIs


Ebony arrived with anoth-
er cat, yes we named her
Ivory, and she has since
been adopted. We did try to
keep Ebony and Ivory
together but in the end felt it
was more important to get
one out of the shelter and
keep looking for a home for
Ebony. She is really quite
beautiful
with her
medium
length
pure
coat of
black fur.
The
black
and
photo of
her does
not show
off her
very striking green/yellow
eye color. Therefore you
must come out to see her in
person.
Our other pet of the week
is Alley, our bull terrier mix.
She arrived at the shelter
with heartworms. You see
her previous owner failed to
protect her from heart-
worms with the monthly pill.
If she was not treated she
would have died. She had
her treatment twomonths
ago, and came through very
well. Now she would like to
find a new home where she
will Ike loved and taken care
of.
You can meet all of the
adoptable dogs next
Saturday at the Bausch and
Lomb Parade. Our wonder-
ful volunteers have agreed to
march all of the adoptable
dogs in the parade that


starts at 11 am Saturday.
The cats said that parades
are "just not their thing", so
you will have to visit the
shelter to see them. The
shelter will not openi for
adoptions until after the
parade ends and all of the
residents are safely home.
We will be open from 2-4
p.m. on Saturday and usual
hours on Sunday 1-3.
The following Saturday,
April 9 we will also have to
close for the day because
once again all of the volun-
teers have agreed to trans-
port the dogs and cats to an
Adoption Day held at Pet-
smart in Jacksonville. The
dogs will be at the Orange
Park location from 9 a.m.
till 3 p.m. and the cats travel
to the Petsmart by Avenues
Mall on Southside. If you
can help with this adoption
day we can use some assis-
tance. It is a very big job to
get all 33 dogs and 25 cats,
up, fed, cleaned and out of
the house at 7:30 a.m. to be
set up for the store openings
at 9 a.m. Even if they all do
not get adopted, it is a great
day out and helps get them
even more attention and
love. If you would like to vol-
unteer to help, please call
321-1647 and speak to
Sparky, Lynda, or Beth. See
you at the parade!


CATS ANGELS


Hi, everybody, I'm called
Puddin' (my brother Peanut
calls me Puddin' Head!).
We're a litter of four orange
kittens around four months
old, two boys, two girls, but
I'm the only long-haired
one, which makes me decid-
edly special.
We are the lucky ones -
the kitties rescued by Cats
Angels. My foster Mom
explained it all to me. That
it's spring and lots of kittens
are being born right now.
The Angels already have
three moms with their 17
kittens, not to mention the
over 50 adult cats, and the
daily growing number of kit-
tens without mothers among
the small handful of ladies
who foster care. We were
lucky cause it was the begin-
ning of the season and there
was a cage for us. The
Angels can only save as
many kitties as there are
foster homes willing to help.


It seems to me there should
be lots of people wanting to
save little kittens lives like
mine. Especially when the
Angels give the foster people
the cage, the food, the litter,
pay for all the medical
expenses and once the kit-
tens are 3 months and got-
ten spayed or neutered they
go the Thrift Shop or
Petsmart or Petland to get
adopted.
My foster Mom says it's
the best thing she's ever
done. She says she changes
our fate, from being feral or
dead, to being adopted in a
loving home forever. That
sounds good to me!
So stop on by 1853 S.
Eighth St. I hope you will
consider foster care this
spring the life you save
would be someone sweet,
like me.

COOKING WITH

PLEASURE
... ..---

ALICE WISH



Crepes


for lunch


or brunch

C repes, those thin and
delicate little pan-
cakes, are, beyond
doubt, one of the most
versatile little culinary cre-
ations ever invented, lending
themselves to brunch, lunch-
eon, light dinner and desserts.
They can be stuffed with
bits of leftover meats, chicken
or shellfish mixed with a com-
plementary sauce and season-
ings, and topped with some of
the basic sauce that has been
set aside. They can be stuffed
with fruits, cheeses or whatev-
er is available, mixed with a lit-
tle appropriate sauce and
topped with the same sauce
without the added ingredients,
or a different sauce for a more
complex presentation.
To make preparation quick-
er, crepes can bie made ahead,
stacked with a couple of layers
of waxed paper or plastic wrap
between each, and frozen for
use up to a couple of weeks.
I am bringing you a basic
recipe for the crepes, plus a
chicken-and-spinach combina-
tion. But do take advantage of
the season's fresh berries and
stuff some crepes with sweet-
ened berries and softened,
slightly sweetened cream
cheese, for a delicate dessert

BASIC CREPES
1 1/4 cups milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 teaspoon cooking oil
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Combine all ingredients in a
blender. For dinner crepes,
add 1/4 teaspoon salt. For.
dessert crepes, add 1 teaspoon
vanilla and 1 teaspoon sugar
instead of salt Cover and
blend until smooth. Heat a
lightly greased 6- or 8-inch
sloped-sided skillet over medi-
um-high heat Remove from
heat, and pour 2 tablespoons of
batter for 6-inch skillet or 3
tablespoons for an 8-inch skil-
let. ift and tilt skillet to spread
batter and coat bottom of pan.
Return to heat Cook for 1
minute or until light brown.
Turn with a spatula, and cook
second side for 30 seconds.
Slide finished crepes onto
paper towel, cooling before
preparing for freezer or for
desserts. For filled crepes,
spoon filling into center; roll or
fold crepe while still in the pan;
slide carefully onto plate.
Repeat with remaining batter.
Filling for spinach and
chicken crepes:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup skim milk
1 beaten egg
dash salt
non-stick spray coating
2 cups sliced fresh mush-
rooms
1/2 cup sliced green onions
or leeks
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup evaporated milk
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt and dash
of pepper
2 tablespoons dry sherry
1 cup shredded cheddar
cheese (4 ounces)
1 10-ounce pkg. frozen
chopped spinach, thawed and
well-drained
2 cup" tin'lv chopped cooked
chicken or turkey
For sauce, combine mush-
rooms, leek and water. Heat to
boiling. Reduce heat, cover
and simmer 5 minutes. Do not
drain. Combine milk, corn-
starch, salt and pepper. Stir
into vegetable mixture. Cook
and stir until thickened and
bubbly. Stir in sherry and 1/2
of the cheese until melted. For
filling, combine spinach, chick-
en and 1 cup of the sauce.
Spoon 1/4 cup filling onto
unbrowned side of each crepe.


Roll up. Arrange crepes, seam
side down, in a 3-quart rectan-
gular baking dish. Spoon
remaining sauce over crepes.
Cover and bake in a 375 E
oven 25 minutes or until hot
Sprinkle with remaining
cheese, and bake 5 minutes
more. Makes six servings.
