County board denies


rezoning for apartments


BY AMANDA BISHOP
For the News-Leader
Spectators applauded as the
Nassau County Planning and
Zoning Board deemed rezoning
of 30.37 acres of land in Yulee an
impractical idea.
The property, located on the
north side of A1A between
Chester Road and Pages Dairy
Road, is zoned industrial, but the
applicants, Johnny, Daniel, and
Gary Dudley, requested rezoning
to high-density residential for
Courtney Isles, a 240-unit apart-


ment community.
The planning board voted 4-1,
with Jeanne Scott dissenting and
board members Ronnie Braddock
and Richard King, absent, to not
recommend the rezoning after lis-
tening to community members
speak against the proposal
Tuesday night.
Anthony Robbins, of Prosser
Hallock Planners and Engineers,
spoke on behalf of the project.
"It will encourage internal
vehicular circulation and pedes-
trian movement, and bicycle con-
nection to Nassau Commerce, a


ON THE MO VE


place to live, work, play and grow,"
Robbins said.
He explained that the project
would include an activity center
at the intersection of A1A and
Chester Road, a 240-unit apart-
ment community and would pre-
serve wetlands.
"I'm not against growth," said
Angie Wallace of Nassauville. "I
think the proposal made tonight
made a lot of sense. There are a lot
of great areas in our county that
can be developed." But she said

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
The Fernandina Beach City
Commission may take action to
invalidate the results of next
Tuesday's charter ballot referen-
dum.
City Attorney Debra Braga said
during Tuesday's regular com-
mission meeting she would
research the steps required for the
commission to throw out referen-
dum results because of unclear bal-
lot wording.


"I'll have to talk to the Division
of Elections and find out exactly"
how to proceed, Braga said. "We'll
probably need to have a special
meeting if we want to try to take it
off the ballot."
But removing the referendum
from the ballot may not be an
option because early voting has
begun, she said.
Braga addressed the possibility
of corrective action after an open

Claude Watkins keeps going

ALICEWALSH .
News-Leader

Wheeling around the Five Points area, checking
out Publix, Wal-Mart and any other places that suit his
fancy, Claude Watkins is a cheerful sight in his dec-
orated and modified Hoover-around. He doesn't tray- '
el alone; his two faithful companions, white toy poo-
dles, are always with him.
Sometimes they are dressed for the season or a
special holiday, emitting smiles and friendly com-
ments from passers-by. And Watkins, 86, loves every
minute of it.
Several years ago a stroke brought down the
World War II veteran and retiree. But he didn't stay
down. I've done so much in my life, and have always
been active. I'd go crazy ifI had to sit in the house all
thetime."
So he acquired the little transport vehicle and
enhanced it to meet his travel needs. He added a plat-

MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Police Chief
Robert "Chip" Hammond gave the
maximum allowable contribution,
$500, to each of two candidates in
Tuesday's city election.
Hammond is listed among the
contributors to Mayor Greg
Roland, who is seeking re-election
as a group 2 city commissioner,
and Bill Leeper, seeking election to
the group 3 city commission seat.
Roland is a deputy fire chief in
Jacksonville, Leeper a state high-
way patrol officer.
Campaign treasurer's reports
were filed with the city clerk's office
March 28. A sec-
ond set of trea- --
surer's reports is ,- .. .
due to be filed
today. A find set
of reports is due .
April 25.
Roland is con-
tested by former
mayor Joe
Gerrity for the Hammond
group 2 seat on
the city commis-
sion. Leeper is vying with Ed Coop
and Martha Garvin for the group 3
seat.
According to the finance reports
filed March 28:
Roland had received $1,700 in
cash or checks and $175 in in-kind
contributions.
In addition to the police chief,
his contributors included Scott
McClenning, city Planning
Supervisor Lupita McClenning's
husband, who gave $100.
Other contributors were
Cambridge South Inc., a bookstore
owner, and contractor Jason Rowe,
$250 each. Smaller contributions

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers have agreed to hire an architect
'who will determine if three houses
on South Fletcher Avenue comply
with the city's existing building
code.
But the owner of the houses
told the commission Tuesday that
hiring a consultant fails to absolve
the city of accountability for incon-
sistently issuing permits.
"The city is responsible. They
need to stand behind what they've
done," said Ron Holmes. "Your
code, even as you amended it, is
not proper either."
Holmes said the city issued him
a permit for the houses in October.


Election Tuesday
Early voting continues today
for the city election. Absentee
ballots are available also.
Election day is Tuesday.
Five candidates seek two
seats on Ihe city commission,
there is a straw ballot for mayor
and an election referendum
charter amendment.
Candidates for a three-year
term to the group 2 seat are
incumbent Greg Roland and for-
mer commissioner Joe Gerrity.
Candidates for a three-year
term to the group 3 seat are Ed
Coop. Martha Garvin and Bill
Leeper. A runoff election would
be he!d May 10 if none of these
three receives at least 50 per-
cent of the vdtes.
The straw ballot for mayor
includes the three commission-
ers who are not up for election
this year. They are Vice Mayor
Beano Roberts, John Crow and
Ken Walker.
The referendum would aller
the municipal election process.
Instead of elections each year,
they would be held every other
year in ever.-numbered years.
The terms of commissioners
would be extended from three to
four years. A Yes vote approves
the change.
Early voting continues from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. today and
Monday and from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. Saturday at the city clerk's
office in City Hall. 204 Ash St.
Absentee ballots are available at
the clerk's office.
The election is scheduled
from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at
two polling places the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center. 2500
Atlantic Ave., for voters in
Precinct 102, and the Elm Street
Recreation Center/Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Center, 1200 Elm
Street, for voters in Precinct 101.


"I presented plans for you to review
. and now you say they're not
right," he said. "I feel like the city
is responsible for their employees
and they need to stand behind what
they've done. You've opened your-
self up to a lot of litigation because
of inconsistency in your code."
Commissioners voted 3-2
Tuesday to hire Robert Overly III
to review the building height, set-
backs and permit requirements for
houses at 2252, 2262 and 2272
South Fletcher Ave. Vice Mayor
Beano Roberts and Commissioner
John Crow voted against the meas-
ure that contracts Overly to estab-
lish the accuracy of building per-
mits issued for the sites.

This is the last in our series of
scams. We only scratched the
S surface, for there are many, and
new ones pop up every day.
However, we hope that by look-
ing at a few of the most common,
you will see a pattern, a method
in the madness, and be able to
recognize others when they
appear. Remember to keep your
personal information concerning
your identity out of the hands of
anyone who does not need it for
legal purposes, be wary of prom-
ises of quick and easy money,
requests for upfront fees, bargain
services and offers or guarantees
^ from unfamiliar companies.

The following precautions will
help ensure that your donation
benefits the people and organiza-
tions you intend to help:
What is the exact name of
the charity? Ask, if that informa-
tion has not been given to you.
Ask what percentage of the
donation is used to support the
causes described in the solicita-
tion, and what percentage is used
for administrative costs.
Call the charity to find out
whether it's aware of the solicita-
tion and has authorized the use
of its name. It's important to veri-
fy this.
If the letter or telemarketer
claims that the charity will sup-
port local organizations, call the
local groups to verify.
Don't provide any credit
card or bank account information
until you have reviewed all infor-
mation from the charity and
made the decision to donate.
Ask for a receipt showing
the amount of the contribution

the Charier of the City ol Fernandina Beach be amended so that
municipal elections will be held every two years in even numbered
ears, and shall the terms of office of commissioners of the City be
changed from 3 years to10 4 years to coincide with the election
change?"


CITY Continued from 1A
Fernandina, read to the commis-
sion, asked the commission to "file
legal action in circuit court to have
the vote on the referendum nulli-
fied prior to the city election."
The letter, read by Judy Belz on
behalf of Concerned Friends, also
indicated that Vice Mayor Beano
Roberts had expressed doubts
about the clarity of the referen-
dum language during a March 24
voting machine test and certifica-
tion.
The letter, which called the ref-
erendum wording "seriously
flawed" and asked the commission
"to do the fair and right thing,"
included a transcript excerpt from
an audio recording of that certifi-
cation meeting.
' "This is not clear. This should
make reference to county elec-
tions," Roberts told Braga and City
Clerk Cassandra Mitchell after
hearing the referendum read by
the audio voting machine.
"It needs to be said... 'to coin-
cide with county elections,'
because the main thrust, other
than that extra year which I could
care less about, is to save the cost
of the election."
"You don't think they will
understand it?" Mitchell asked
Roberts.
"Nah, they're not Rhodes schol-
ars in Fernandina," he replied.
"OK, we do need to add more
in there," Mitchell said.
"I move that we do that. I sec-
bnd that motion," Roberts said.
"It's too late." Braga said.
Concerned Friends of
Fernandina has publicly opposed
the referendum to amend the city
charter. The city commission
denied the group's public request
to separate the three referendum
issues on the ballot.
The ordinance enacting the ref-
erendum asked voters to decide if
the city charter should be changed
to move city elections from the
spring to early fall, to modify the
terms of office from three years to
four years, with elections for all
group seats occurring in even-
numbered years, and to shift

responsibility for conducting
municipal elections from the city
clerk to the Nassau County
Supervisor of Elections.
'The current wording of the
referendum... makes absolutely
no reference to the election timing
change, nor does it mention the
reduction of the city clerk's role
from conducting to coordinating,"
Belz read.
Commissioners could not legal-
ly vote on whether to nullify the
results during the meeting, Braga
said. "I would probably need to
have an advertised meeting and
take comment," she said.
"I think we look pretty foolish
backtracking on that," Commis-
sioner Mike Lamb said. "I think we
can go with the will of the people."
"I think it's confusing to what
'the will of the people' is if you
read the way it's worded,"
Commissioner Ken Walker said.
"Everything was in the ordi-
nance," Braga said. "Next time I'm
going to read everything right out
loud to you guys."
"And for your information Judy,
I spoke to the city attorney today
about just how do we go about
invalidating that," Roland told Belz
after hearing the letter, adding that
he and Dave Lott of Concerned
Friends had exchanged e-mails on
the issue. "So that action is already
under way. She was going to
research it"
Roberts said the referendum
should remain on the ballot
"Let's let it ride," he said. "I
wish there was some way that we
could publicly state most of our
position on this... But here again,
like other things, it's our fault."

The city will pay $960 to the

professor and principal in Design
Works Architects, PA. Overly will
conduct what is intended to be an
independent review of how the city
code was applied in construction of
the houses and recommend a strat-
egy for eliminating errors in inter-
preting the code.
"Is this necessary now?"
Roberts said. "I got all I needed to
hear from the building and zoning
department, and I trust whatever
they said," he added, referring to an
April 1.special meeting on the case.
"We need to take a good hard
look and sort the facts as we find
them," because the evidence so far
has consisted of "rumor and innu-
endo" about public employees, said
Mayor Greg Roland, who called for
the independent investigation.
"I also think that we need to
take a step further and see if it
meets the criteria for sending it up
to the FDLE (Florida Department
of Law Enforcement) or the state
attorney's office," he said.

intentionally after receiving the

Rufus McCormick, 30, of Yulee, was injured Saturday evening when the vehicle he was driv-
ing struck a 1998 Toyota pickup truck parked on Worthington Drive. Lt. Bill Leeper of the
Florida Highway Patrol said McCormick was traveling about 60 miles per hour and that
speed contributed to the accident. McCormick has been cited with speeding resulting in an
accident and having no tag on his vehicle, said Leeper. McCormick was treated at Shands

her concern is about traffic gen-
erated by growth and emergency
vehicles being able to navigate
through that traffic.
"You guys are the architects of
our future," Wallace told the board.
"You can be the artists or you can
be the butchers."
Robert Weintraub, president of
the East Nassau Homeowners
Council, cited several concerns,
including increased traffic on
already crowded roads, hurricane
evacuation route congestion and
the possibility that an even larger
number of units could be con-
structed.
"When you change the zoning
to high-density residential, he can
build 300 to 360 units on the prop-
erty," Weintraub said. "They can
always change it later and say that's
the zoning."
Robbins responded, "That sim-
ply is not possible due to the fact
that we only have concurrency for
240 units. There's just no way they
could have concurrency for more
than 240 units."
Yulee resident George
Lawrence, representing the Pirate
Woods Homeowners board of
directors, said the board has strong
objections to rezoning the area.


WATKINS Continued from 1A
Now, each morning and after-
noon, he places the eager poodles
in their touring basket and takes
off to meet and greet
Watkins is a born extrovert who
enjoys chatting with people:
friends, relatives, strangers it
doesn't matter. And he always has
an amusing story to tell from his
life experiences.
Not that life has been a walk in
the park. As a boy, he worked hard
to support his mother and younger
sisters, working in a grocery store
and then, when he was in his late
teens, hauled coal out of the
Kentucky mountains. At 17 he
drove a school bus, then had a
short-lived career (just one night)
as a driver for a cattle car.


Already planned are a new
shopping center, projected to be
the county's largest, that will add
traffic to A1A and Chester Road,
and the construction of Amelia
Concourse, with more than 3,000
homes planned along the new
road.
"Our intersection will be the
busiest intersection on A1A,"
Lawrence said: "It will probably be
the busiest intersection in the coun-
ty. I think we have a concurrency
problem."
He added that A1A already
exceeds its capacity and addition-
al lanes would not be completed
in time to meet forthcoming
growth needs.
"There is no funding for these
additional lanes," Lawrence said.
"The earliest start date is 2010.
More traffic. Road rage. Lights
change and cars don't move. These
are all possibilities."
Tom Cote-Merow, co-president
of Amelia Island Association, which
represents island homeowner
groups, said widening A1A to six
lanes is not the answer.
"It's just plain not going to
work," he said, adding the Amelia
Island Association would like to
see a moratorium on development
along A1A.
Lillian Wilder of Nassauville


"That was one of the scariest
moments of my life," he says. "It
was a night trip on a job that I had
taken on the spur of the moment.
A drunk driver crashed into the
back of the cattle car. His wife and
daughter were killed, and he was
unconscious, in serious shape. The
regular driver of the cattle car,
who was accompanying me on the
trip, was also knocked out. Dazed
and frightened, I wanted to just
run away, but didn't. I called the
police."
Ironically, when the police
arrived, they arrested Watkins.
"We're sorry, but everyone else is
dead or unconscious. We have to
take somebody in." Watkins spent
three days in jail before it was all
straightened out.
Not long afterwards, Watkins

said side roads should be built
before more efforts are concen-
trated on construction along A1A.
"We've got to build the infrastruc-
ture first," she said.
Planning and Zoning Board
member Sue Hutchinson also
said more infrastructure should
be considered before making
development decisions. "It may
be that this is an excellent idea,
but that the timing is wrong," she
said.
Though petitioners may ask for
zoning changes to the county's
future land usage map (FLUM),
those changes don't have to be
accepted.
"Don't accept the FLUM
changes unless you,ve got an
absolute assurance that we are OK
first," Hutchinson said.
The Nassau County
Commissioners are scheduled to
vote on the issue after a public
hearing at 7 p.m. April 25, at the
county meeting room on Pages
Dairy Road in Yulee.
The commissioners may
choose to support the Planning
and Zoning Board's recommenda-
tion, or to overrule the recom-
mendation, which would transmit
the application for rezoning to the
Florida Department of Community
Affairs for review.


married "my Jewel, a girl I met in
Waycross." He had been caring
for his widowed mother, and
because of that he was exempt
from the draft. But marriage thrust
him into the AI class for draftees,
and he soon found himself in the
Coast Guard Artillery, headed for
Europe.
"I continued to help my mother,
sending half my allotment to her
(that was fine with Jewel) and the
other half to my wife."
"When I was finally discharged
and came home, I saw our son for
the first time. He was two-and-a-
half years old," he recalls.
"We were living in Waycross,
and I worked on odd jobs to sup-
port us. Then, a friend asked me to
drive with him to Fernandina,
where his brother worked at
Rayonier. While there, I met pipe
fitter foreman E.R. Kelly. We
chatted a few minutes, then he
asked me if I would like to work
at the mill. He hired me on the
spot."
Watkins worked at Rayonier for
the next 33 years, first as a pipe fit-
ter and then, later, as an assistant
to the turbo engineer.
"I've enjoyed my life," he says.
"I also licked prostate cancer by
catching it early. I've had friends
who died of that disease because
they wouldn't bother to get regular
checkups. The saddest part of that
is, it's curable if caught early.
"When the stroke laid me up, I
was determined to get back on my
feet and enjoy the rest of my life.
The good Lord has pulled me
through cancer and a stroke, so
he must have a reason for me to
still be here and I'm going to
make the most of it.
"I want to tell old people, 'Don't
just sit in the house and dry up. Get
you a little transport system, get
out and go!'"

The goal is to raise $35,000,
said relay co-chairperson Ginger
Young, who with her fellow com-
mittee members is working on
several entertainment features,
including a sock hop, classic car
display, drive-in movie and "Ms.
Relay Competition."
"We are very blessed in this
community to have the people we
do, coming together for a cause
like this," said Young.
During the "Ms. Relay
Competition," men dressed in
drag will solicit donations while
walking the track Saturday
evening. Whoever collects the
most donations in his "purse" will
be the winner.
People have from noon on
Saturday until the start of the
Survivors' Lap at 6 p.m. to set up
their campsites. Following the
Survivors' Lap, there will be a
reception for the survivors and
their caregivers.
The Luminary Ceremony will
take place at 9 p.m. Everyone is
encouraged to purchase luminar-
ies in memory of family members
or friends who have lost their bat-
ties with cancer or as a thank you
. in the name of those who are sur-
vivors. They are asked to pay a
minimum of $1 per luminary.
The luminaries are placed
around the track and lighted. In a
moving ceremony, all surround-
ing lights are turned off to reveal
the glowing luminaries and the
names of those for whom they
were purchased are called out.
Young said so far 17 teams
have signed up to participate in
"Cruisin' For a Cure," including
The Jitterbugs, The Pink Ladies &
Gentlemen, The Twisters, Alpha

have just formed a team they call
Grease Lightning. In addition,
there is Topsy Turvy, the Warrior
Runners, Burning Rubber Betas,

'Chamber Classic' draws over 100


LIL SPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent

More than 100 golfers enjoyed
the 14th Annual "Chamber Classic"
Golf Tournament Tuesday after-
noon at Deerfield Lakes Golf Club
south of Callahan. The event is the
largest fund-raiser for the Greater
Nassau County Chamber of
Commerce each year.
"It was great," said tournament
director Randy Horton. He said he
received many good comments,
but that the chamber is always look-
ing for suggestions to improve the
event. Horton said he had a lot of
help from about 15 volunteers, all
them easy to spot dressed in pump-
kin colored shirts, and of course,
the weather, which could not have
been better for the outdoor event.
Players paid to take part in four
competitions during the tourna-
ment. But the big draw was the
2004 Chevrolet pickup Callahan
Auto Sales sponsored as the "Hole
in One" (5th hole) prize, which no
one was able to .'in .

A concern in 49 out of 50 states
There are about 2000 known species of termites throughout the world. In the U.S.,
Subterranean termites, including Eastern, Western, Desert and Formosans, which build
underground nests, are a concern in every state except Alaska. Subterranean termites
are extremely destructive, because they tunnel their way to wooden structures (like
your home), into which they burrow to obtain food. Termites all share a virtually
insatiable appetite for wood and other cellulose-containing materials. Given enough
time, they will feed on the wood until nothing is left but a shell.

When it comes to gaining access to your home, termites are
amazingly proficient. The last thing you want to do is make

OPINION


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Main Beach getting
shortchanged
On my way to Fletcher Avenue
last week, I did a double-take at
the Atlantic stoplight. Where was
the cabana? I learned that a con-
tract is already in place to build a
new one, a $99,000 prefabricated
concrete structure that looks like
a neat little garage. Just restrooms,
- no community room, no first-aid
room, no outside nature display,
no special "beach" design.
Was the design presented at a
city commission meeting? Were
Main Beach committee members
allowed to review the design? (No.)
How did this happen?
I had a long talk with Nan Voit,
recreation and parks director. Her
approach is that a park can be
developed by selecting good ideas
from catalogues and examples
from what other parks have done
and placing these elements in Main
Beach without the involvement of
a designer.
As a graduate of Parsons School
of Design, and someone who
worked in commercial design for
16 years, I believe that outstanding
public spaces can only be achieved
through the vision of a professional
designer who can pull together the
elements of a park (uses, open
space, structures, fhaterials, light-
ing, landscaping, pavements) so
that everything reinforces a design
concept, i.e., "open, airy, playful."
We already have one outstand-
ing public space, which is Centre
Street, but this did not happen
without the involvement of a design
firm. The Ohio firm that designed
Centre Street in the late 1970s did
such a good job that it has lasted 30
years.
Fernandina Beach is a small
town of 11,000, but it has amazing
resources public space on the
ocean (Main Beach) and public
space on the river (marina
uplands), connected by a "grand


boulevard" (Atlantic Avenue).
Wouldn't it be great if both ends of
Atlantic were terrific public spaces?
Main Beach is being short-
changed if not designed as a whole
concept by professionals. A con-
ceptual plan is not enough. There
should be sketches of the struc-
tures, pictures of proposed light-
ing, benches and bike racks, a land-
scaping plan, a board showing
proposed materials and colors, a
budget. All for review by the com-
mission and the public. Its design
should relate to the historic use of
Main Beach.
In a News-Leader article sever-
al years ago, Ernest Chaplin said,
"There was really more to do in
Fernandina than there is today. We
had the Casino at Main Beach with
a skating rink and bowling alley.
Moore's across the street was the
real go-spot, dancing and out of
this world hamburgers." Seaman
Hudson said, "Mr. and Mrs. Moore
had the Blue Room, which was just
for youth. Young people would
gather there for visiting and danc-
ing. Dating was not a part of it we
all just showed up."
Consider this. The waterslide
property at Main Beach is up for
sale. The 8-Flags skating rink and
bowling alley have closed. The
Putt-Putt lease will be up for renew-
al shortly. The city has lots of facil-
ities for team sports and little kids,
but where can middle and high
school kids go to have fun and
hang out? Main Beach could be
the place if we seriously consider
its design.
Nan has a lot of good ideas on
this subject and mentioned that
there had been a meeting at City
Hall that included high school stu-
dents. She and I discussed a band
platform for concerts, a soft jog-
ging track around the perimeter
with a parallel paved track for
skaters, more activities for young
adults, a better design and loca-
tion for family picnic/play area, a
spray fountain area, relocating

some parking to the perimeter. I
mentioned benches located so we
oldsters can enjoy watching all this
young energy.
All of these good ideas should
be handed over to a professional
designer who could pull them
together while maintaining open
space. We've committed $6 million
to the river end of Atlantic Avenue,
let's consider some big bucks on
the ocean end. Use some bond
money and get the grants admin-.
istrator hustling. Hire a designer
and phase the project funding over
four years.
Leadership from the city com-
mission and the public is neces-
sary if we want well designed pub-
lic spaces that we can be proud of
on both ends of Atlantic Avenue.

All about the green
Re: The recent letter from Jack
Healan of the Amelia Island Co.
("Crane Island, 'the right way,'
March 30) spouting revisionist his-
tory. I have only been here 16 years
but that is long enough to catalog
a number of issues that suggest
the "environmentally friendly" role
is not one that is totally consistent
with the facts and surely doesn't
give comfort to "The Plantation's"
potential role with Crane Island.
Who remembers "The
Plantation" employee instructed to
remove birds that were eating gold-
fish from their ponds? Are gold,
fish a natural species of the north
Florida environment? The employ-
ee utilized a firearm and killed
birds that were not subject to a
hunt or a license allowing such
hunting. The exterminated birds
were natural to north Florida's
environment! What was the result?
A public mea culpa and repercus-
sions against the game officer that
had the audacity to enforce the law
against "The Plantation."
Coastal setbacks? I remember
driving on the beach when that
was allowed and seeing the con-
dominium on "The Plantation" that
was perilously close to falling in
because of beachfront erosion.
Dunes are a buffer provided by
nature to protect us from the daily
fluctuations of the environment,
namely the ocean. The first rule
of nature is that nature wins, unless
of course you have 'The
Plantation" mentality. What do you

um lining the waterfronts of
Florida?
Golf courses offer beautiful vis-
tas of large green expanses. How
many golf courses does '"The

close in fact when natural dune
erosion occurred you could see
the sprinkler system pipes that ran
through the environment's buffer
zone to make sure "The
Plantation's" golf courses got their
fertilizer and water. By the way,
that fertilizer and water would not
be necessary for the natural envi-
ronment that existed prior to 'The
Plantation's" interpretation of what
was and was not "environmentally
friendly." There also exists a ques-
tion as to the environmental
responsibility of golf courses
because of the amounts of fertiliz-
ers and other chemicals utilized
as well as the volumes of water
required to maintain those beauti-
ful green expanses.
The argument Healan espouses
of "The Plantation's" environmen-
tal responsibility is blue smoke and
subterfuge. This issue is all about
money, money derived from devel-
opment of the few remaining nat-
ural resources we have here in
Fernandina. Transfer of "units" of
development within the coastal
high hazard zone is a concept that
needs to be considered much fur-
ther than the mere existence of
numbers.
Those units were designated for
specific areas and the conditions
within that area in existence at the
time of their creation. Transferring
those units, which otherwise would
arguably be no longer usable at
"The Plantation," to another loca-
tion miles away at a time and place
much different than when they
were created for the south end is,
the real issue here. Creation rf con-
servation easements for tax bene-
fits does not generate the right to
transfer "units" to some other area
for financial benefit for the trans-
ferring entity. Here 'The
Plantation" would benefit twice -
tax credits for conservation ease-
ments and the sale of "units" to
another developer. Is this yet anoth-
er change of the rules?
Healan should tell the truth,
environmental friendliness is about
green American dollars not green
natural resources when you have
"The Plantation" mentality.

Deployed troops
Hello, I am Staff Sergeant
Pamela Kelley Marshall of
Fernandina Beach. Currently I am
deployed in support of Operation
Iraqi/Enduring Freedom. I just
wanted to say "thank you" to every-
one at Kelley Pest Control for car-
ing about the troops' morale by
supporting me and my friends! It
makes all the difference knowing
that the people back home support
us and appreciate what we are
doing.
While deployed, it is the little
things that make such a huge dif-
ference; Again, "thank you!"

Do something
Albert Einstein said: "The world
is a dangerous place, not because of
those who do evil, but because of
those who look on and do noth-
ing."
The latest travesty to our nation
came March 31, when a fellow
American died from dehydration
and starvation, in a case that could
have been prevented. Terri
Schiavo, from what I have read,
was not one who would have want-
ed her name and life so publicized,
however, she, in her life and in her
death, has taught us that we must
heed the words of Einstein and no
longer stand idly by.
Where were you when Terri
passed from this world? Drinking
your second cup of coffee?
i'tniihi linb the brief that was due
the day before? Laughing with a
fellow coworker? I was sitting at
my desk, dumbfounded that a
country that was founded on "jus-
tice for all" allowed this woman to
die such a horrific death! I think
somehow I had hoped above all
hope that a measure would be
passed, that a hero would emerge,
that someone somewhere would
stop this. Therein lies the problem.
I personally did not want to become
involved. I wanted someone else
to make the difference. It did not
happen this time and a family that
wanted only to save their daugh-
ter's life is mourning today.

How many more Americans,
unable to speak for themselves, will
have to die to amend the way we do
things? It is apparent that our sys-
tem is a system of legalities, not a
system of justice. Will this change?
Not if you and I sit in our offices or
in our homes, continuing on with
our routines, as if nothing hap-
pened Thursday, March 31.
If nothing else, Terri's death has
shown one person, me, that we
don't live isolated lives. What hap-
pened to Terri on Thursday could
happen to your son or daughter,
your mom or dad, tomorrow. It isn't
an impossibility, as I would have
thought only days ago. Our coun-
try is now divided on an issue that
should be a non-issue: whether to
save a fellow American's life. It is
truly a sad day for our nation.
With deepest sympathy to
Terri's family, I am sorry that I did
not do more.

Keep your pets safe
Last night I rescued a very large
dog on Will Hardee. The poor big
guy was sopping wet and dodging
traffic. He recognized rescue when
it came his way and jumped right
into the back seat of my car. His
neck and upper back were raw
from chaffing, which worried me.
He had on a collar and an unread-
able rabies tag from Jax Beach.
Nobody had reported him missing
to the police, and the Humane
Society was closed. Luckily, the
Humane Society has an emergency
number to call and they came and
picked him up from my home.
If this dog had been wearing a
personal ID tag, I could have imme-
diately called the owner of the dog,
and he would not have had to spend
the night in "doggy jail," and some
very worried pet owner would not
have had a very anxious night won-
dering where their wonderful pet
was. A personal ID tag is an easy,
inexpensive means of having your
pet returned to you in the shortest
period of time, and are sold at the
entrance of WalMart. I put on my
dogs' tags their name, address and
my home and cell phone numbers.
If your pet only gets lost once in its
life and is safely returned to you
because of that tag, it's more than
worth the $4 or $5 you paid for it.

milestone with "A Song Runs Through It," an evening
of songs from our musicals, performed by mem-
bers of our community. There were touching
moments and for some of us that have been here
from the beginning, a few tears and many moments
of pride.
When we started in 19811 really didn't think any
of us thought ahead to what ACT would be 24 years
later, but we couldn't have chosen a more appropri-
ate slogan, "ACT Puts the Community on Stage." We
need to pay tribute to the three directors that have
brought ACT to where it is today, Ellen Green Ensley,
our founder, Mary Leonard Hurt, and our current
managing director, and Linda McClane.
A big thank you is due the community that has so
resoundingly supported us all these years. As one of
the charter members of ACT and the current pres-
ident of the ACT Guild and chairman of "A Song Runs
Through It," I also want to thank all the members
past and present of ACT, all the musicians, actors,
technicians, and volunteers in all capacities that
make our productions possible.
There were over 21 singers and musicians that
came back to entertain us with music from our past.
In support of them, over 50 volunteers and Guild
members planned and implemented decorations
that contributed to the ambience, moved and set up
lights and sound equipment, set up screens, risers,
tables, chairs and all things necessary to make the
Atlantic Rec Center ready for a show.
Helping and supporting us were many members
of the community that we want to publicly thank. The
Fernandina Beach Atlantic staff was always coop-
erative and helpful in any way we needed them. Our
caterer, Chef Jeff and his staff could not have been
easier to work with. The Waterwheel and Southern
Touch helped with our ticket sales. The Amelia
Island Chamber Music Festival loaned us risers that
helped us enhance the staging.
Adding to the entertainment and profit for the
evening was the auction planned by Dan Doulet and
presided over by our own State Rep. Aaron Bean.
Items donated included photographs by Mili Ryan,
prints by Char Bachman, CDs by Tom King and the
Royal Chicagoans, theater/dinner packages for
Brett's Waterway Cafe, Cafe Karibo, and Baxter's,
with tickets for ACT's summer play and two tickets
for the tennis finals at the Bausch and Lomb Tennis
Tournament, compliments of Octagon Sports.
All of this would have been nothing without the
over 200 members of our community that came out
to celebrate this occasion with us. Thank you all!
According to all the comments I have received, I
believe everyone feels this should be an annual
event, so get ready ... we may have a song running
through ACT for years.to come.
Peggy Horton
ACT Guild President

Battle against growth never ends


n the field of sports, there's an old saying, "You
win some, you lose some and some get rained
out, but you gotta suit-up for all of them." In
other words, you're never going to win if you
don't bother to show up. Some in our community
have discovered that same philosophy can be used
against local developers who seem intent on cover-
ing every square foot of vacant land in Nassau
County.
In previous columns I have lamented the effect
uncontrolled development is having on our commu-
nity, along with the fact that most residents are apa-
thetic and either unable or unwilling to "get
involved" in opposing unbridled development It
now occurs to me that if I fail to offer readers at
least some examples of successful strategies in this
ongoing battle, I can hardly blame people for not
stepping forward to participate. In reality, clear-cut

are rare in this arena, but there
are some bright spots that
deserve to be shared.
In 2004, one of the island's
S'"' major developers set his sights
on developing 8.17 acres near
Amelia Road and the Amelia
Island Parkway, an area that
had been zoned open-rural
before it was annexed into the
city of Fernandina Beach. This
Mike Boyle parcel was originally intended
.*-. ...- to have a combination of town-
WAIT A homes and single-family homes
that totaled 32 dwellings.
1MINUTE However, in addition to those
32 units, a colleague of the
developer tried to obtain city approval to build
another 12-townhome development called Delmar
Villas just around the corner on an unpaved section
of Simmons Road. Both of these proposed develop-
ments were in close proximity to the 195-home sub-
division called Isle de Mai (originally called Ocean
Breeze) which is currently going up between Bailey
and Simmons Roads. How this last development
came to fruition via a "developer's agreement"
orchestrated by the city manager (which allowed it
to bypass the normal review by the city's planning
board) will be covered another time.
However, if you've followed the above chain of
events as I've described them, you can begin to
understand why residents in that area were getting
concerned about the large number of new housing
units that were slated to be built in their area. All of
the roads mentioned are two-lane, and most of them
are at capacity traffic loads. But what can independ-
ent home-owners possibly do against well-funded
developers?
Meet Pete Procko and Greg Lane, two family
men who finally decided it was time to stand up and
say, "Enough is enough." They organized their
neighbors, and they started attending all of the meet-
ings that were required before the city could give
the necessary approvals for the construction to
begin. Developers count on the fact that the
approval process is so cumbersome and time-con-
suming that most interested residents will finally
throw their hands in the air and simply give up.
When this happens, government agencies have only
one source of information upon which to make their
decisions: the developers. .


MIKE BOYLE/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Nassau County Commissioner Ansley Acree, County Engineer Jos6 Deliz (in hat) and county
planner Marshall McCrary discuss a proposed development's effect on an unpaved portion of
Simmons Road. The fire engine and a school bus were brought in to demonstrate potential haz-
ards.


But Procko and Lane didn't give up. On the proj-
ect at Amelia Road and the Parkway, they stood toe-
to-toe with the developer who wanted to put homes
on 50-foot lots. They wanted 100-foot lots which
were more compatible with the surrounding homes.
The developer sued the city for the smaller size, and
the issue went to mediation which resulted in a rec-
ommendation for 60-foot lots. Procko and Lane
stood their ground. In the end, the developer agreed
to 75-foot lots, rather than delay development any
longer.
Along the way, these two neighbors were instru-
mental in showing the planning board that/the
Delmar Villas, which was described as a "12-town-
home development" on an unpaved portion of
Simmons Road, actually consisted of 24 units (not
12), since each "townhome" was actually a duplex
(an insight the planning board had not considered).
Based on that discovery, the planning board voted
last May to oppose approval of Delmar Villas. Mark
one down for the "good guys."
But as most of us have learned, the issue of devel-
opment needs to be viewed as a "war," and not a sin-
gle "battle." And the challenges facing Procko and
Lane are a perfect example of this strategy.
Just as the dust was beginning to settle around
the scuttled Delmar Villas project, the developer has
come back and requested approval to build 10 single-
family homes on the same three acres that are only
served by an unpaved section of Simmons Road.
There are several problems with this new approach,
not the least of which is that the current road is only
30 feet wide, and the minimum width requirement
for county roads is 60 feet. In addition to the 60-foot
requirement, flp, lorid epartent of
ciii-. ; .. U-- i ; i i *;~ !i ) .


Transportation recommends that such roads should
have an additional 3-foot-wide clear zone ("the area
outside the traveled way, available for use by errant
vehicles") in addition to curbs angd sidewalks. The
problem is, there is insufficient land available on the
sides of this portion of Simmons Road to comply
with these requirements.
To make these points crystal clear, Procko and
Lane invited the developer, along with county com-
missioners, the county engineer and county plan-
ners, to personally view the intersection that would
handle the anticipated traffic from the new develop-
ment When everyone arrived, they were greeted
with a large fire engine with flashing red lights
parked on the unpaved section of Simmons, and a
large school bus parked on the shoulder of Amelia
Road. The purpose was to show that the existing
road was inadequate to handle vehicles of this size,
and the demonstration was successful.
Commissioners Ansley Acree and Tom Branan
(who visited the site separately so as to avoid a
Sunshine Law violation) both appeared to under-
stand the dangers of introducing increased traffic to
a substandard road, but the county engineer and
planning director seemed to believe a variance could
be given if the developer could show a "hardship."
Apparently it becomes a "hardship" when a develop-
er buys land that has never had more than two hous-
es on it, and he now wants to replace those two
houses with 10. That's not a hardship, that's greed.
Hang in there Pete Procko and Greg Lane;
you're an inspiration for the rest of us.

The energy crisis- remember it?


R member the lines, the rationing and the
ensuing inflation? Then just as soon as it
was upon us, it seemed to have miraculous-
ly disappeared.
My cousin, who worked on a tugboat, told me
that numerous oil tankers were anchored off shore
during the crisis, full of product waiting to be deliv-
ered. Even as a teenager, it didn't elude me that this
was a deliberate decision on the part of the oil
industry to pinch the supply, so that demand cou-
pled with that lack of supply, would boost price. As
expected, the prices soared, the "crisis" abated and
we all went back to driving like we did before -
except that we were then paying twice as much as
before.
I look back now, and laugh at a ridiculous state-
ment I made then. I remember saying (as gasoline
crept higher and higher to the unthinkable price of
a dollar a gallon), "I'm going to stop driving if gas
gets over a dollar per gallon!"
Li' Lttle did I know.
b I" Recently, as I watched the
gas pump price rise ever so
A: swiftly past $2 a gallon, I
thought, if only fleetingly, that
maybe two dollars would be the
limit. Stupid me. I just saw that
*-- in some places, gasoline is actu-
S ally at $3 a gallon (and this was
not in Europe or elsewhere).
Coleman Do you also remember
when the speed limit was 55
Langshaw mph nationally? Yeah, I hated it
*... -- too, but it did save gas and
S lives. Eventually the speed limit
OPINIONS was increased, not to save gas
FROM THE or lives of course, but to
GOLDFISH increase consumption and
demand. I wonder who was
behind all of that? A real mind-boggler, huh?
I also remember that during this time, diesel
engines became very popular, because the price of
diesel was so much cheaper, and the miles per gal-
lon were so much better. Today, however, there's no
real difference in price between gas and diesel,
although diesel efficiency is still somewhat better.
So I wonder why the price of diesel has risen so
much, and for that matter, the price of gasoline?
There isn't an "energy crisis," so that can't be the
reason. Maybe it's just because the oil companies
can just do it. They don't have to blame OPEC, or
have some other reason; they just seem to have
raised price just because the can.
Oh but I know, the oil companies will tell you
that the increase is because we have too few refiner-
ies, and the evil environmentalists won't let them
build new ones in unsuitable places. And I am sure
they will tell all of us that they are limited in their
ability to pump domestic crude because we care
more about the environment than the national econ-
omy. And, of course, they will bemoan that they can-
not control the price of crude from overseas.
Yeah, that all makes so much sense, but some-
how they keep making more and more money. It's
also funny though, that in spite of the supposed
'lack of control" over the resource, they were able
to pinch the supply before to squeeze us, the con-
sumers so they certainly could, do it again, reduc-


ing demand in order to squeeze the exporters into
keeping their prices under control. But that would-
n't be worth it, unless of course, they still kept
charging us the same high prices at the pump and
made an even bigger profit. After all, it's not what's
good for America; it's what's good for the bottom
line. .
In my opinion, the supply control issue is a red
herring, and the industry has played it like a virtu-
oso would a concert violin.
So while they hold us hostage to their econo-ter-
rorist tactics, they just keep raising prices, making a
gazillion dollars at the consumers' expense until
finally we will cry "uncle" and let them drill in the
Arctic and the Gulf of Mexico without a care. Of
course when this happens, they will certainly pro-
vide us all, this wonderful product at a reduced
price.
Yeah right when pigs grow wings! No, they will
just keep making more money, with the bounty that
they extorted from the people, all in the name of
making an honest and reasonable profit.
To me, the monopolistic stranglehold that the oil
industry has over America is outrageous, and the
price gouging is treasonous.
Why treasonous you ask? Because price gouging
is no different at that large-scale level, than counter-
feiting, which has been considered a treasonous
crime.


Counterfeiting was considered treasonous,
because it could destabilize the economy and ruin
our nation.
So it really is not much of a stretch from making
bogus green backs, to monopolistically controlling
one of the most important resources in the world,
and excessively profiteering at the expense of our
economy.
I think it is fair to say, that the "energy crisis" of
the 1970's and the energy-cost crisis of the 2000's
are both manipulated events that did, and are, plac-
ing our national economy in a very treacherous
position.
Let's face it, Big Oil will not stop bleeding us,
unless we as a nation do something about it. Our
government needs to spend more time worrying
about issues that affect all of us, like controlling Big
Oil, as opposed to the president and Congress wast-
ing time and money, interfering in personal matters
like marriage and individual's values.
But, our government's priorities are set like they
are these days, for a reason:
A Because as long as we have an Administration
and an equally culpable Congress, built upon the
fortunes and the future of Big Oil, we have a snow-
ball's chance in Hell of seeing our real and present
crisis being resolved anytime scon.

NEWS-LEADER/FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


Couple celebrates



50 years together


The blessings of the Lord
are here. Can't you feel it in the
atmosphere? The blessings of
the Lord are here. We continue
to thank him for goodness
toward us.
A packed house of family
and longtime friends were on
hand to help Mr. and Mrs.
Daniel Rhodes celebrate their
golden wedding anniversary.
On March 27, 1955, they were
married and on March 27, God
blessed them to celebrate 50
years of dedication to each
other and their family.
A beautiful reaffirmation
service was given and beautiful
it was. Of course, Deacon
Rhodes was doing his usual
thing, waiting for the service to
begin, greeting and shaking
hands with others. The bride
was escorted by their son,
William Jefferson; her sister,
Ellen Green, maid of honor;
their son, Daniel Rhodes Jr.,
best man; flower girls Da'Lon
Green, granddaughter, Jazmyn
Simmons, niece; ushers Marc
Blount, Ryan Nobles, Daniel C.
Rhodes, grandsons, and John
(Pete) Simmons, nephew. Their
daughter, Laura D. Nobles,
granddaughter Terranaye
Rhodes and cousin Gloria
Thomas were hostesses.
There were many special
things and moments shared
with and by this very special
couple. Just a few highlights:
The children brought to the cer-
emony the very same black and
white shoes the groom wore
when he got married in '55, and
a suit coat he wore when the
children were little and going to
Sunday school. They should fit
right into fjs-Ihuin .I ,,iJa
A very touching lighting of
the memorial candle, remem-
bering their deceased daughter
and sister, Gloria. Six burning
candles represented those liv-
ing and, of course, one was not,
representing someone very
dear, gone but never to be for-
gotten. Everyone remembers
that great smile and the love
she shared.
Mr. and Mrs. Rhodes thank
God for his grace and mercy.
They are not counting their
days, just giving God the praise
and honor, for he was the cohe-
siveness that kept them togeth-
er. Help comes in several differ-


ent ways.
Always
pray first,
then work
and other
,ways
comes
A from God.
It de-
manded in
Maybelle our home
Kirkland that our
children
respect eld-
NOW erly people
AND THEN and that
277-3285 they go to
school, get
an education. They were always
helped in any way they needed,
for they were a gift from God.
Our children were our responsi-
bility so we gave them our best.
My wife used to be sugar; now
she is honey. I thank God for
her.. Some thought I wouldn't
make it, but I'm here to say,
through it, all God brought us
through.
Many traveled from far and
near to make this happy occa-
sion. Most participated in the
ceremony. Kelvin Rhodes Jr:,
Isaac Washington, the Rev.
James Payne, Ralph
Washington, their son, from
O'Fallon, Ill., Benjamin Bryan,
nephew, from Savannah, Ga.,
Victor Washington, Shawnda
Nobles, the Rev. Wayne Rogers,
nephew, from Brunswick, Ga.,'

RELIGION


House of God is built on prayer, soul by soul


In Sienna Italy, our recent tour
group stood in amazement
for several minutes, trying to
absorb the sheer majesty of
the cathedral. It takes that long
just to allow your eyes to go up
and down what seems to be acres
and acres of white and black mar-
ble laid in a breath-taking pattern.
Given time to explore I walked
the length and width of the cathe-
dral: enjoying the art, the majesty
and the opportunity for personal
meditation. Wanting to conclude
our visit by stopping by the cathe-
dral bookstore, I started racing
back diagonally across the nave.
But I never made it. Something
caught my eye near the western
end of the Cathedral.
Three or four feet above the
floor stood a very bright lamp
and underneath it was a man on
his knees. I made my way toward
him to resolve my curiosity. He
was a stone mason working on
the marble floor.
I thought it interesting in this
most significant and majestic
house of worship built over 800'

I .. i years ago,
that a stone
mason still
S.. n kneeled with
^,a* simple chisel
and hammer
to refurbish
the marble
floor.
Centuries
Conrad have come
Sharps and gone,
arps and yet his,
labors
PULPIT resembled
NOTES that of those
who first"
built the church.
I stood and watched him for
several minutes, mesmerized by
his patience and commitment to
detail. But what really struck me
was his posture. He went from
kneeling on two knees, to kneel-
ing on his knees and elbows sev-
eral times: matching color, meas-
uring, cutting and cementing
small pieces of stone into place.
Not only did his posture resem-
ble that of prayer, his resolution


and commitment seemed to me
to be a prayer enacted.
Indeed, this is how the house
of God is built It is built on our
knees in prayer: piece by piece,
soul by soul, chiseled and inte-
grated with discernment and love
into what no human hand can
accomplish without the help of
God. We are to invest our lives,
our efforts, our resources, and
our leadership in the creation of a
church that has no walls, eternal
in God's kingdom.
Our work however, must be
done with great humility and dis-
cernment, as if on our hands and
knees before God in prayer. Our
work in its truest spiritual form
should be that of prayer enacted;
as the Psalmist writes: "Come, let
us bow down in worship, let us
kneel before the Lord our Maker.."
(Psalm 95:6)
What is of everlasting value
can only be identified through
prayerful discernment. It is not
our knowledge, or wisdom, or
grand vision but only the Spirit of
God that reveals truth. If we


desire the Kingdom, then it is the
King we must seek. Again, the
Psalmist writes: "Hear my voice
when I call, 0 Lord; be merciful to
me and answer me. My heart says
of you, 'Seek his face!' Your face,
Lord, I will seek." (Psalm 27:7-8)
My friends, what do you seek
to build this day? Do you seek to
deepen your faith, build a
Christian home, church or com-
munity? Whatever the extent of
the project, be it an altar known
only to you and God or a cathe-
dral of mammoth proportion,
remember to stay grounded
through prayer. Our primary
investment must be to humble
ourselves before God through
prayer, seek first his face, and
then withhold nothing from our
labors.
Centuries may have come and
gone, but this is still how the
Church of Jesus Christ, and the
Kingdom it represents, is built:
from our knees in prayer.
The Rev. Conrad C. Sharps is
pastor of First Presbyterian Church
in Fernandina Beach.

Amelia Presbyterian


welcomes new pastor


Amelia Presbyterian Church
officially installed Jerry Klemm
as its new pastor on Sunday
evening. The church has been
without a pastor since John
McNicoll retired from full-time
ministry in January and moved
to South Carolina to be near fam-
ily and pursue a part-time min-
istry position.
Due to his oldest son's health
problems, in 1997, Klemm left his
job as a pastor to pursue a career
in the computer industry a job
that offered more stable health
insurance. However, his original
career choice of ministry was
always in his heart Although he
was not able to serve as a full-time
pastor during that time, he served
as a ruling elder and Sunday
school teacher at Pinewood
Presbyterian in Orange Park.
"I've missed being a pastor so
much," Klemm said. "Now that
my son's health has stabilized, I
can pursue it again. Outside of my
family, my greatest pleasure in life
is teaching God's word and min-
istering to His people."
Born and raised in
Jacksonville, Klemm received his
degree from Louisiana Baptist


Theological
Seminary.
Throughout his
19-year career,
he has served
.-g 'as a pastor in
S Georgia and
Florida and as
an associate pas-
Klemm tor in
Mississippi.
Klemm cur-
rently lives in Orange Park with
his wife, Katherine, and his two
sons, 12-year-old Jerry and 6-year-
old Jakob. They plan to move to
Nassau County upon the sale of
their home.
Amelia Presbyterian Church,
located at 4209 East SR 200 in
Fernandina Beach, is a mission
congregation of the Presbyterian
Church in America (PCA)
through the North Florida
Presbytery. The church holds
weekly worship services at 10:30
a.m. on Sundays and 7 p.m. on
Wednesday. The church also
offers Sunday school and activities
throughout the week. For more

HOMES


Take steps to protect ground water


Many water well owners know
that ground water is pumped into
their home, but often they do not
know much else about ground
water. Myths abound about ground
water, which often makes it seem
mysterious. What follows are
answers to several of the most
popular ground water questions as
well as tips on protecting this drink-
ing water source, which helps sup-
ply 47 percent of the U.S. popula-
tion.

What is ground water and
where does it come from?
Ground water is the water that
fills cracks, voids and other open-
ings in beds of rocks, sand and
soil. Each drop of rain that soaks
into the soil moves downward, fills
available space and forms a large
subsurface storage of water that
interacts with any substance that
comes in contact with it.
Many people believe that
ground water comes from rapidly
moving underground rivers and
lakes. However, that is not true.

What is the relationship of
ground water to surface
water?

Many streams and lakes are
"windows" to the Earth's water
table. In large part, a stream rep-
resents water that has moved from
the ground into the stream chan-
nel. Most ground water flows
directly into streams, rivers and
lakes through streambeds or the
bottom of lakes. On occasion,
ground water emerges out of an
aquifer at a land surface, which
makes a spring.

Is ground water plentiful?
It certainly is. About 98 percent
of the available fresh water on
Earth is ground water. Every day,
the United States uses about 83.3
billion gallons of this water for a
variety of purposes.
The amount of ground water
storage dwarfs the present surface
water'supply. At any given moment,
it is 20 to 30 times greater than the
amount of water in all the lakes,
streams and rivers of the United
States combined.

Are there things that citizens
can do to protect ground
water?
Without a doubt Unfortunately
some people think since ground


water is underground there is noth-
ing they can do to help ensure its
quality, or they think only federal,
state and local agencies can deter-
mine protection. However, every-
one can protect water quality to
some degree.

What is the best thing a well
owner can do to protect
ground water?
The first step and the best
one is for well owners to regularly
monitor the water quality within
their own wells. In fact, it is rec-
ommended that well owners have
their wells checked at least once a
year for bacteria or other unwant-
ed constituents. Devices such as
water softeners, reverse-osmosis
systems and ion-exchange systems
can be used to treat the water for
in-home applications.
To reduce the possibility of
nitrates in ground water, well own-
ers should have their septic tank
cleaned and serviced every two
years. This eliminates the oppor-
tunity for waste backing up and
unwanted materials leaching into
the soil.

What else can be done to aid


* E-wired house package v
* 20-year structural warranty
* Full security with extra keypad
* Six additional phone/cable outlets
* Built-in over-the-range microwave
* Electric fireplace w/ remote & marble surround
* Upgraded ceramic wall tile in 1 bath
* 20-year fungus resistant roof shingles
* Stain-resistant carpet
* Programmable thermostat

ground water quality?
Everyone, including people
who are not well owners, can aid in
curbing non-point source pollution,
which causes the majority of
ground water contamination. Non-
point source pollution includes
runoff of pesticides and herbicides,
soil erosion, and street runoff.
The best practice to combat
non-point source pollution is com-
mon sense. When mixing toxic
chemicals such as motor oil,
antifreeze or fertilizers, do so with
extreme caution. Avoid spilling the
chemicals on the ground because
they can penetrate the soil and
enter the ground water system.
The best place to mix chemicals is
on cement to avoid ground water
infiltration or runoff into surface
water caused by accidental spills.
Also, when working with chem-
icals, read the directions and never
go above the recommended mix-
ing ratio or over-apply chemicals to
gardens and fields.

Where can I get more infor-
mation?
For more information on your
private water well, contact your
local water well contractor.
Also, visit the National Ground
Water Association website just for
well owners, www.wellowner.org.

FRIDAY. APRIL 8,2005/News-Leader


Shamrock to some



is a weed to others


Q. I am not sure what I have
.in my lawn, but it is taking
over and nothing is helping to
get rid of it. The leaves are simi-
lar to clover. It has a root that
looks like a white radish and
blooms are purple. I pull all I
can each year, but it is more
than I can handle now. I live in
Fernandina Beach. Hope you
can help. DW
A .The weed you have is in
:.the family oxalis, which if
placed in a pot is often called
Ahamrock. The flowers may be
white, purple or yellow. The
petals often resemble clover,
which causes people to confuse
this plant with a common vari-
ety of clover. This particular
lawn weed is difficult to control
because it is classified as a
perennial. Unlike annual weeds,
which only reproduce by seed,
perennials can reproduce by
seed and vegetatively using
other parts of the plant like the
root, stolen or leaf. Pulling
-weeds by hand, which is my
favorite pastime, often is unsuc-
cessful with perennials because
of their ability to reproduce in a
variety of methods. Any portion
of the weed left in the ground
can produce a new plant, hence
the reason why some weeds -
seem to be so stubborn and con-
tinue to return year after year.
You will need to be persistent
with this weed and consider
using a weed killer for broadleaf
weeds but be sure the product
can be used on your type of
grass. In addition, you should
spot treat only the areas where
the weeds exist, avoid spreading
the product over the whole
lawn: One other thing to consid-
er is why weeds are coming up
in your lawn. Healthy turfgrass
should allow few weeds the
opportunity to grow. If your turf-
grass is St Augustine remem-
ber to water it once every 5-7
days in the summer and once
every 10-14 days in the winter.
Water the lawn in the morning
hours between 6-10 a.m. Use a
fertilizer product similar to 15-0-
15. Look closely at the label and
try to find a fertilizer product

.What is causing all the
,webbing in the trees along
the roadsides? Are they danger-
ous? SD
A sThe webbing is caused by
.the eastern tent caterpillar,
Malacosoma americanum.
Although this caterpillar is a
pest native to North America it
is not dangerous. Populations
fluctuate from year to year, with
outbreaks occurring every sev-
eral years. Defoliation of trees,
building of unsightly silken
nests in trees, and wandering
caterpillars crawling over plants,
walkways and roads cause this
insect to be a pest in the late
spring and early summer.
Eastern tent caterpillar nests
are commonly found on wild
cherry, apple and crabapple, but
may be found on hawthorn,
maple, cherry, peach, pearand
plum as well. While tent cater-
pillars can nearly defoliate a tree
when numerous, the tree will
usually recover and put out a
new crop of leaves. o
Removal and destruction of
the egg masses from ornamen-
tals and fruit trees during winter
greatly reduces the problem
next spring.

FRIDAY, APRIL 8,2005 AROUND TOWN News-Leader


Numbers are not our friends


High drama on center court


Jill has three apples and
Donna has four. They want
to combine them, and then
give half of them to Slater.
How many apples will Slater
receive? Even as a little kid, I
knew the answer to this one: Who
cares? Let Slater buy his own
apples.
My dad, bless his heart, is a
structural engineer, and he and
his math skills have provided for
his family quite nicely, thank you.
Long before computers and
CADs, my dad used yellow paper,
a graphite holder and a pearl
eraser to compute and draft the
exact dimensions of bridges and
the steel skeletons of buildings.
Years later, he worked at home,
and I discovered that he was a
mumbler. He'd converted the
garage into a drawing room (liter-
ally), and would stand out there
and figure and mumble and draw
and mumble all day long. Our big
red Persian cat was his constant
companion, and every once in a
while she would make her own
raspy contribution to the process.
But no matter how hard he tried
all of these years, he's never
understood how and why his only
chick could be so baffled by num-
bers.
Numbers, I learned at a very
early age, are not our friends. My
parents conspired with my teach-
ers to disabuse me of this preju-
dice, but to no avail. Numbers are
the reason I dislike oatmeal to
this day. My teacher would assign
me extra arithmetic homework,
and my dad would help me with
it, but only after all of my other


work was
completed.
(Oh, yippee;
what an
A incentive to
S;'. "finish early!)
;^f I found
multiplication
tables espe-
cially baf-
Cara Curtin fling, and
Dad would
put me
CITY through mul-
SIDEBAR tiplication
261-5845 drills until
my eyes
glazed over.
Over our bowls of oatmeal the
next morning, he'd ask me how
much nine times seven was, and
would get no response. He'd final-
ly look over at me, and my tears
would be dripping into my oat-
meal. Poor little kid; I'd forgotten
everything he'd drilled me on the
night before. I still don't know my
ninezies; that's why we invented
calculators. If my calculator dies,
I will have to close my shop so I
can go buy a new one.
I inherited my math skills or
a lack thereof from the maternal
side of the house. Mom would
periodically call Dad while he was
at work to ask what one half of
2/3 of a cup was. She was obvi-
ously halving a recipe for dinner,
and had not yet discovered the
secret I unearthed years later,
when I started messing up my
own kitchen. One simply fixes the
recipe as directed, and then
freezes the leftovers in meal-size
portions. Just be sure you really


like Tuna Surprise before you fix
it, because the six that the
"serves six" at the bottom of the
recipe refers to clearly means six
Jaguar linebackers after a hard
day of practice.
Having more or less mastered
grammar school arithmetic, I was
deemed ready to enter the won-
derful world of mathematics.
Good thing I wasn't given a vote;
if I'd had my way, I'd still be bliss-
fully unaware of the very exis-
tence never mind the purpose -
of quadratic equations. Now that I
am all grown up, I have relegated
them to the same rubbish bin in
which I stuffed those pluperfect
endings for all of those Latin
verbs.
To this day, I contend that
algebra is an exercise in self-
abuse; never once have I had the
necessity as an adult to know
what X squared plus Y squared is
equal to. There are no Xs or Ys
on my bank statement, and, come
to think of it, there aren't any in
my cookbooks, either. Since it's
tax time, I should point out that
the Feds don't ask for X amount -
they merely want it all. Algebra
gives letters a bad name; X and Y
should sue for damages.
But God is not totally unkind
to those of us who are numerical-
ly challenged. While I love words
and roll them around my tongue
like aged beef or brandy, my
father doesn't know alliteration
from apples. Speaking of apples, I
wonder if Slater would give me
half of his half of the apples that
Jill and Donna gave him. Just how
many apples is that?


I witnessed a true-life drama.
It was a tennis match. Not
just any tennis match a
first-round match at the
annual Bausch & Lomb tennis
tournament.
The stage was set. Center
court on a clear sunny spring day
at the tree-shaded Amelia Island
Plantation Racquet Park. Joining
friends, I took my seat and wait-
ed for the performers. The first,
a young ingenue svelte, muscu-
lar but feminine a neatly plaited
blond braid hanging down her
back. The second, a seasoned
veteran of this arena- dark,
Spanish, all business she had
been on this stage before.
Curtain up the background
music was simple. A regular
rhythm of the ball hitting the clay
courts that served as center
stage.
The two talents traded shots,
points and games. At the end of
the first act the ingenue had lost
in a tiebreaker the ultimate dra-
matic moment when a match is
dead even and is decided by sin-
gle points, not games. High
drama indeed.
Open second act. Will the
young ingenue rise to the occa-
sion and match and overcome
the talent of her more seasoned
opponent? Or will the veteran set-
tle in, using all her experience
and accumulated skill and come
up with just that little bit more tb
be the star?
The crowd watched as the
hard-hit balls traveled back and
forth and the players ran trying
to return a seemingly impossible


ma'n shot for yet
another
chance at a
winner.
SThe crowd
held their
collective
breaths as
the most
artful shot
of all, the
much cov-
DickieAnderson eted, drop
- ... --- shot was
executed.
FROM THE It has to
PORCH have just
the right
spin and be directed to just the
right spot on the court. Will the
player reach the ball and if they
do can they direct their return to
a spot on their opponent's court
that will not be returned?
Yes, all the performers were
there, including the ingenue's
mother and her coaches. They
watched as she won well-hit
points and made the inevitable
mistakes of the young. The moth-
er would encourage, almost to
herself, as she watched her
young and talented daughter


struggle.
I watched as the drama played
out Act two ended badly for the
ingenue. The points became pre-
dictable as the experienced part-
ner found vulnerability and con-
tinued to go to it winning point
after point
Curtain down, match over.
The ingenue, deep in her own
thoughts, left the court. She was
already imagining her next
match and what she would have
to do to survive. She would be
back. Those that watched that
day had no doubt The seasoned
veteran? She got past one and
would play another match and
maybe win, but her future was
less optimistic. She could only
come back so many times and
face the constant flow of younger,
stronger competitors.
The audience got its money's
worth. The drama was high, the
talent undisputed,

FRIDAY, APRIL 8,2005 SCHOOL NEWS News-Leader


NOTES

Montessoil neWs
Since returning from spring
break, the classrooms at the
Amelia Island Montessori School
are busily learning about the new
season and planning their gar-
dens.
The PTO would like to thank
the community for attending the
recent rummage sale in front of
the movie theater. Parents also
enjoyed a recent fund-raiser,
"Friday Night Fever," at the,
Palace Saloon. Thanks to every-
one who donated items for the
silent auction for that event.
Montessori parents also pre-
pared for the Bausch & Lomb
tennis tournament. The school
provides the volunteers for the
Players Services Lounge and
transportation during the event at
the Plantation. Thanks to the
community volunteers who
offered to help staff it this year.
The school is now accepting
applications for the 2005-6 school
year. Openings are available for
children aged 18 months through
kindergarten.
'The school is based on the
teachings of Maria Montessori,
the Italian physician and educator
who designed a complete set of
materials that teach through
hands-on manipulation. The class-
rooms are designed to provide a
beautiful, relaxed environment
with everything at a child's level.
This offers proper support for
free movement, making choices
and completing cycles. The stu-
dents learn to be responsible for
their work and clean up after
themselves. They develop inde-
pendence, discipline and a love
for learning that lasts a lifetime.
One of the characteristics of
the Montessori classroom is
multi-age groupings, creating a
family-like environment The
younger children have mentors
and the older children learn lead-
ership. The toddler program is
for children 18 months to three
years old. The primary program
is for children aged 3 to 6.
Toddler and primary classes
meet daily, 9 a.m. to noon, with
kindergarten dismissal at 2:45
p'm. Before and after school care
is available. The elementary pro-
gram meets from 8:30 a.m. to 3


p.m.
The Amelia Island Montessori
School is an affiliate of the
American Montessori Society and
is accredited by the Florida
Kindergarten Council. Scholar-
ships are available for qualifying
students. Call 261-6610 for infor-
mation or go to www.ameliaisland

mation.

For the


good of


thegame

I am a Tarheel. I was
born outside of Chapel
Hill, and graduated from
the University of North
Carolina. I was there during
the Michael Jordan era,
when we then lost him to the
NBA after his junior year.
Carolina has had several
such losses to early NBA
departure, such as Antawn
Jamison, Vince Carter, Jerry
Stackhouse and Rasheed
Wallace. Now on the "heels"
of an NCAA championship, it
appears that Carolina is like-
ly to lose four of their five
underclassman starters to
the NBA.
Freshman Marvin
Williams is considered a top
three pick, junior Sean May
a top10, and juniors Rashaad
McCants and Raymond
Felton are likely first-round
selections. Carolina's other
starter is a graduating senior
and also likely to play in the
NBA. So just like that, the
entire starting five is gone to
the pros and, in my opinion,
everyone in basketball from
the fan to the player to the
university to the NBA that
loses out in these situations.
Many sports fans I know
have lost complete interest
in the NBA. Too often you
simply don't know who the
players are because they
haven't hung around college
long enough for you to get to
know them.
Another situation becom-
ing all too common is players
jumping straight from high
school into the professional
ranks. Sometimes the player
is ready, as evidenced by
superstar LeBron James.
More commonly, though, the
player i: n.ri., a:i evidenc-d
by Kwame Brown, one of
many "NBA high schoolers"
who turn out to be an unpre-
pared, underdeveloped bust.
Brown came out of Glynn
Academy in Brunswick in
2001 and was drafted as the
first overall pick by the
Washington Wizards. Now,
three years into his pro
career, the Wizards appear
ready to give up on him.
Retrospectively, wouldn't
have Brown looked great in
a Bulldog or Gator jersey
while honing his game for
the Wizards? Heck, even
having LeBron in a Duke jer-
sey would have been good
for everyone involved.
However, it's only natural
that players want to get the
money as soon as possible.
For the good of the game,
the NCAA and the NBA need
to revamp the system to
allow the game's premier
athletes to start getting some
of their money upfront to
keep them from jumping
ship to get it. I would pro-
pose some changes that
would allow the athlete to
say, "I am declaring myself
eligible for the draft, but I
am staying in college." That
way, a player could get the
money now because he and
his family may need it, but
he also is allowed to develop
as a player and a person by
staying at the college level.
The prospective NBA
teams would have the option
of drafting this player and
paying him now despite the
fact that they won't get him
for a year. If the player is a
"can't miss," then the respec-
tive NBA team would then
likely be willing to go ahead
and grab him through the
draft while waiting for him to
finish out his university com-
mitment. Onemay worry
that the NBA teams could
lock everyone up into a con-
tract, but this is not likely to
happen and provisions could
be set up to ensure that the
NCAA is not seen as some-
thing more than a farm sys-
tem for the NBA.


One of the most popular
players in the NBA is Grant
Hill, who was, without a
doubt, ready to turn pro after
his junior year at Duke.
However, he fully under-
stood that the money would
be there in the long run and
chose to stay at Duke for his
senior year. Widely respect-

McKenzie wins East Coast title, qualifies for national


BETH JONES
News-Leader
He's been surfing 13 years but his win on
Sunday was his biggest.
Brady McKenzie of Yulee, who turns 18
Saturday, took first place in the open men's
division (ages 16-25) in the National Scholas-
tic Surfing Association East Coast Cham-
pionships in Sebastian Inlet.
"I've never placed in it before," he said.
"It was my biggest win ever."
McKenzie said the competition was "pret-
ty fierce."
He had to survive four rounds and the top
six qualified for the final.
In the final 30-minute heat, McKenzie
said judges scored each surfer's best two
waves on a scale from 1-10 and the scores
were announced while the surfers were still
in the water.
"After 25 minutes, I was pretty much too
far ahead for anyone to catch up," he said.
'"The second-place person needed a 9.1 to
pass me."
McKenzie garnered scores of 7.6 and
7.2 for his best two rides.
McKenzie competed in the six qualifying
events, held in New Smyrna since last


October, to earn a spot in the March 31-
April 3 contest. He won three and placed in
the top three in two others to earn a spot to
vie for the East Coast title.
The top 12 finishers at Sebastian Inlet
qualify for the national contest, which will be
held in California in June.
"It gets my name out there for people to
recognize," McKenzie said.
The win will also please his sponsors,
which include Quiksilver, Reef, Smith sun-
glasses, Gorilla Grip, Town & Country surf-
boards, FCS and Driftwood Surf Shop.
His trip to the national contest will be
his fourth in a row. McKenzie placed sixth
three years ago in his first outing.
"I haven't placed since that first year,"
McKenzie said.
The competition is even stiffer at the
next level, McKenzie said. With three divi-
sions on the East Coast alone, there will be
around 100 surfers in his division.
In the meantime, McKenzie will hone
his skills in the water to prepare for the
national contest.
He plans to attend college this fall and
major in business. It should come as no sur-
prise McKenzie wants to pursue a career in
the surfing industry.

Fishing action remains
excellent at the southern
tip of the St. Marys
south jetty rocks for a
variety of species of saltwater
species. Capt. Benny Hendrix of
the Miss Melba charter boat
company has guided his guests
to 26 black drum so far during
the month of April.
"We are having one of our
best seasons for black drum," he
said. "About
half the
drum that
we are land-
ing are tak-
ing half of a
fresh blue
crab while
the rest are
biting large
fresh
Terry Lacoss shrimp.

a fairly
large drum with a 20-pound
whiting rod. The line soon broke
and I quickly grabbed the parted
fishing line. I tried desperately
to tie the broken lines back
together when the big drum
finally had his way and pulled
the fishing line from my hands!"
Other species of saltwater
game fish have also shown up at
the entrance of the St. Marys
jetty rocks, including shovelnose
sharks, red drum, whiting and
blues.
Local fishermen have cobia
on their mind with recent warm
weather trends. Normally hard-

of April. However, the cobia
migration could happen any day
now.
Offshore fishing this week-
end should produce good catch-
es of good eating black sea bass.
Excellent sea bass catches have
been coming from FA reef dur-
ing the past few days from area
fishing charter boats.
Red bass fishing has been
slow in the backwaters with a
few spotted sea trout taking top-
water plugs during the flood
tide. Flood tide Saturday will
arrive at 9:27 a.m. with a low tide
at 3:36 p.m.
Largemouth bass fishing has
been anything short of phenom-
enal in Lofton Creek.
"We are having one of our
best spawning seasons," Capt.
Richard Sheets said. "My bass
charters have been catching a


lot of three to five pound bass
while using live shiners. I guid-
ed Michael Scaturro to several
nice bass to six pounds this
week and had one huge bass
right up to the boat before the
live bait hook unfortunately
pulled free!"
Gulf Stream fishing has been
hot and cold with a few good
catches of wahoo and dolphin
coming to the docks.

The News-Leader encourages
local anglers to submit photo-
graphs of exceptional catches. We
will publish them in this space on

friendships with people of color.
When Tricia was a child, she was
loved and nurtured, as was her
mother before her, by "Dixie,"
originally her grandmother's

Tricia left Mississippi to pur-
sue her music career, but was
drawn back time and again with
hopes of rediscovering the kind-
ness and compassion she once
knew. The characterization of
white Southerners as redneck
racists pained her deeply. Like

strikes, Tricia spent years jotting
down her thoughts and feelings.
The result is her latest'CD, "The
Heart of Dixie", a collection of
songs that reflect her roots and
deepest feelings about the South
she knows and loves.
"Every time I sing the song,"
says Tricia, "people come up to
me and start telling me about
their 'Dixie.' In my opinion, this
American issue of race will never
go away ... it needs to continually
be discussed. Culture is a pre-
cious, living thing. It has to be
nurtured if ifs going to survive.
Any artist or creative thinker has
a responsibility to help chronicle
his or her own time, place and
people. That's the surest way to
keep a culture from disappear-
ing."
With more dialog, interaction,
and understanding,, perhaps the
day will come when the only color
we see is the color of love.
