SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A 79-year-old Nassauville
woman awakened Sunday morn-
ing to find her bedroom window
had been broken sometime during
the night. She told police she first
believed it to be the work of an ani-
mal, but when she went outside to
investigate, she found shotgun
shells on the ground.
Nassau County Sheriff's inves-
tigators said someone walked up to
the woman's Nassau River Road
home during the night and fired
three shots into her bedroom just
above the bed where she was sleep-
ing.
The victim told police she didn't
wake up when the shots were fired
because she had fallen asleep with
her radio playing and she has trou-
ble hearing.
A neighbor told investigators
she heard four or five gunshots,
each approximately five minutes
apart, around 11 p.m. Saturday
night.
The victim said she woke up at
8:30 a.m. the following morning.
According to a report, police
believe the shooter approached the
home on foot and fired shots into
the victim's bedroom and living
room. Several footprints, believed
to be the suspect's, were found in
the area.
The victim's son said nothing
was taken from the home.
The incident is under investi-
gatiorn and',ano.artests have been
made.

28 pound!
SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
Google nutrition and you'll get
58 million "hits." Weight loss, 30.6
million. Fitness, a whopping 109
million Internet links.
You could save yourself the has-
sle of sifting through the reams of
information, trying to determine
what is true and what is false, and
just follow the advice make that
the example of Jerry Hudson,
56, of Fernandina Beach.
The Rayonier instrument shop
worker is 28 pounds lighter, boasts
a body composition of 11.8 and is
$3,000 richer after winning a
"Forever Fit Challenge" hosted by
the Amelia Wellness Center over
eight weeks.
And Hudson's secret is that
there isn't one.
"Anybody can do this," he said
following the check presentation
this month at the wellness center.

Sheriff, deputies join

summer camp fun
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Nassau County Sheriff's deputies faced tough
opposition earlier this week when more than 30
children armed with water balloons decided to take
on the police in a spirited water fight.
The deputies won, but not by much.
Deputies spent.time with local children as a part
of "Harmony in the Streets," a week-long summer
camp provided by the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch.
Inc., a nonprofit organization that runs several
youth-oriented programs in conjunction with law
enforcement agencies throughout the state.
The purpose of the camp is to give local children
who have been designated as "at-risk" by social
workers or police an opportunity to build self-esteem
and become comfortable with law enforcement offi-
cers.
"We're trying to prevent juvenile delinquency."
said camp director Courtay Johnson. "A lot of thte
kids here have trust issues ... a lot of these kids have
only seen police in negative circumstances. We
want them to see that law enforcement officers are
your friends."
Camp activities include arts and crafts, team
sports, environmental education and presentations
by local law enforcement officers.
Capt. Mike Sutton said the deputies have as
much fun during the camp as the children. Some
have even visited the camp after working midnight
shifts, he said.
"We've had so much fun with all these kids,"
Sutton said. "It creates a bond between us and the
community."
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said
this is the first year the camp, which travels through-
out Florida, has come to Nassau County. Driving a
2002 Ford Cobra, Seagraves visited the camp on
Wednesday afternoon.'
As the children marveled at the car, which was
seized from a convicted drug dealer and will be


s lighter, .
"It's no great secret. The food that
I eat isn't the food that you would-
n't eat."
That's six small meals a day and
"all the vegetables and salads you
want," plus lean protein and avoid-
ing fried foods.
Combine that with exercise -
in Hudson's case 45 minutes of car-
diovascular and 45 minutes of
weight training most days for a
recipe of increased fitness and
more lean body mass.
"I never dreamed that I would
lose so much body fat," said
Hudson. "It's easy to lose weight.,
It's hard to lose body fat."
Doug Lane, manager of the
wellness center, said body compo-
sition is a measure of the lean-to-fat
ratio of a person's weight. It can
be calculated by taking skin fold
measures at different parts of the
body, such as the abdomen and

thanked them for attending the camp.
"We want to help you make good choices for
yourself," Seagraves said.
Eleven-year-old Jazmyn Richardson, 'a
Jacksonville girl who attended the camp with her
cousin, said it helped her decide what she might like
to do when she grows up.
"I want to be (a police officer)," she said. 'You get
to save people and protect people."
The camp is staffed with employees of Florida
Sheriff's Youth Ranch, Inc., as well as volunteers
from the community and members of the NCSO

shops
BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
The loud debate over a sex
shop in O'Neil may have come to
a quiet end Monday at least as far
as county government is con-
cerned.
Without any discussion by the
board or comments from the audi-
ence, the Nassau County
Commission adopted amendments
to its land use ordinance that will
regulate the location of sexually
oriented businesses.
However, those amendments
won't affect the Adam & Eve adult
novelty shop located off A1A in
O'Neil. That business opened in
February and it won't be affected
by the zoning amendments or dis-
tance restrictions because it will
be "grandfathered in."
Adam & Eve sells adult videos
as well as lingerie, sex toys and
adult novelties, and has been the
subject of heated public debate at
previous county meetings.
Residents have urged county
officials to close the business and
have complained about its prox-
imity to O'Neal Memorial Baptist
Church and the Rose-Lennie

Building

moratorium

opposed
BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
A spokesperson for a "task
force" of several community organ-
izations told the Nassau County
Commission Monday it is opposed
to a moratorium on development.
Charles Shelton said following
reports the county was consider-
ing a moratorium to address
changes to its land use regulations,
the special "task force" was organ-
ized to discuss the consequences of
such an action.
He said the task force was made
up of representatives from the
Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-
Yulee Chamber of Commerce,
Amelia Island-Nassau County
Association of Realtors, the Nassau
Builder's Council and Nassau
County Economic Development
Board.
"We agree that there are sub-
stantial problems facing the growth
in Nassau County," the group's
statement says. "However, a mora-
torium of any magnitude will only
serve to foster continued unpro-
ductivity and preclude numerous
planning options. Further, we do
not feel that imminent peril to pub-
lic health, safety or welfare exists,
which would justify a moratorium."
Shelton said in addition to its
opposition to a moratorium, the
underlying message the task force
was left with after its meeting was
that "Nassau County doesn't have
a vision."
"We don't know what we want to
look like," he said. 'Today, tomor-
row, next week, next year or the
year after that."
Following Shelton's presenta-
tion, Commission Chair Ansley
Acree said the county growth man-
agement department, whi h had
previously made the recommen-
dation, might not request a mora-
torium. Earlier this month the coun-
ty voted to fill two vacant positions

When is a headache

more than a headache?


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Most of us have headaches
occasionally, and while they can
range from annoying to excruci-
ating, unless there are other
symptoms they are not usually a
sign of a serious medical condi-
tion. But they can be.
Some of the ordinary
headaches that can make our day
miserable may be triggered by
stress, certain foods, changes in
the weather and even certain
odors.
Emotional factors such as
anxiety, depression, frustration,
letdown and even exciting happy
events can also be associated
with the development of a
headache.
Migraine, tension, and cluster
headaches, comprise more than
90 percent of all headaches, and
even though they may send you
to a darkened room with an ice
pack, they are termed "benign,"
meaning they are not symptoms
of something severe or life
threatening. And, of course, a
severe headache may accompany
a number of illnesses, such as
the flu.
But 10 percent of all
headaches can result from seri-
ous and life-threatening condi-
tions, such as a brain tumor or


infection,
stroke, or
brain dam-
age follow-
ing an injury.
Get medical
help if the
following


applies:
You have three or more
headaches per week.
You take a daily pain reliev-
er.
You have a stiff neck or
fever in addition to a headache.
Along with the headache,
you feel dizzy, unsteady or have
slurred speech and your arms or
legs are weak, numb or tingle.
These can be signs of a stroke.
The headache gets worse
and won't go away.
If you should have a fall,
and you're confused or drowsy,
or a headache persists for days
or weeks afterward.
Headaches begin after exer-
tion or coughing.
Vomiting accompanies the
headache.
The headaches you normal-
ly get change in character or
intensity.
Your headaches began after"
you reached the age of 50.

County is on the brink of fat


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
A monster may be lurking just
around the corner for a large seg-
ment of Nassau County's popula-
tion.
"We may be just starting to see
the leading edge of the obesity
problem," said Dr. Eugenia J. Ngo-
Seidel, director of health for the
Nassau County Health
Department.
In fact, heart disease was the
leading cause of death from 2001-3,
with 254.3 deaths per 100,000 peo-
ole, Ngo-Seidel said. Cancer ranked
second and stroke third, with num-
bers all well above the state aver-
age.
"Pretty consistently we are
above the state average," said Ngo-
Seidel.
In a random community survey
of 580 people that targeted the West
Side of the county and ended in
March, obesity ranked as the third-
biggest health concern, behind
alcohol/drug addiction and cancer,
noted Ngo-Seidel. "Being over-
weight" was listed as among three
unhealthy behaviors people were
most concerned about, with alcohol


FIT Continued from 1A
the upper arm.
Lane said the whole point of the
challenge was for participants to
develop their lean body mass and
lose fat, not just weight.
"The premise behind the con-
test is that not everyone can be a
110-pound super-model, but we
want to emphasize the fat pounds
lost," said Lane. "We want to keep
as much lean body mass as we pos-
sibly can, that's the good stuff."
He said, "oftentimes we will see
clients coming into the center, and

that they are gaining muscle. They

even though they might weigh the
same or more than when they

For Hudson, less fat and fewer
pounds have meant added energy

Now I'm energetic."

FCAT Continued from 1A
said Nassau County Schools
Superintendent John Ruis. "We've
stayed pretty steady."
Scores for the reading and math
portions of the FCAT for grades 4-
10 were released last week along
with those for science.
Average scores for local students
increased in nearly every grade.
Tenth grade scores in reading and
math decreased from last year, as
did ninth-grade and sixth-grade
reading scores and math scores for
fourth- and fifth-grade students.
The FCAT is graded using five
"achievement levels," with a level
three being the lowest a student
can score and still pass the test.
Overall, most Nassau County stu-
dents are passing the FCAT, but
smaller percentages pass the read-
ing portion in the eighth, ninth and
10th grades.
"The scores are still disappoint-
ing in the middle and high schools,"
Ruis said.
This year, 34 percent of Nassau
County 10th-grade students passed
the reading portion, down from 39
percent last year.
Only 40 percent of students
passed the reading portion in the
ninth grade, and 49 percent of
eighth-grade students passed.
Ruis said the task of raising mid-
dle and high school reading scores
is facing school districts throughout
Florida.
"This is not just us, it's been that
way pretty much statewide," he said.
"We're all struggling with that ...
we're going to keep searching for
solutions."
Throughout Florida, 44 percent
of eighth-grade students passed the
reading section of the FCAT, 36 per-
cent of ninth-grade students and 32
percent'of 10th-grade students.
On average, Nassau County fifth-
and eighth-grade students scored
higher than the state average in the
science portion of the FCAT. That
test is administered to students in
the fifth, eighth and 11th grades.
The average score of Nassau
County 11th-grade students is the
same as the state average score of
293.
Currently, the science portion
of the FCAT is not a factor in the
grading of schools by the state
Department of Education, but it will
be starting in 2006.
Grades for Florida schools will
be released this summer.
FCAT statistics and scores are
available at the state Department
of Education web site, fldoe.org.

and drug abuse the other two.
Deborah Jones, health educa-
tor with the health department, said
today's busy lifestyles are a big fac-
tor. And on the West Side, people
have told her a lack of amenities
prevents them from taking a walk
or working out.
"If you look on the West Side,
there aren't as many parks and
places to walk, whereas on the East
Side, you have the beaches and
sidewalks and neighborhoods
where you can go and walk," she
said.
Beyond that, "Families are too
busy to exercise and people prob-
ably frequent fast food restaurants
a little too much, or they're not
ordering salad and grilled chicken
or fruit," said Jones.
"Portion distortion is a huge
problem. We all suffer from por-
tion distortion," she said.
The health department offers a
program called Fit Families, to help
educate parents and their children
about food choices and healthful
habits, but Jones said even that has
been difficult to coordinate.
"People with families tell me
they're booked up every night of
the week. We're open to sugges-


event, which did not require gym
membership but had a registration
fee, become an annual event.
'The hope is to promote healthy
lifestyles and that (participants) con-
tinue their progress and maybe pass
it on to friends and family," he said.
And for anybody who thinks
they aren't fit enough or are too


tions for meeting times and places,"
she said, including with church or
other groups that might be inter-
ested.
Based on a County Behavior
Risk Factor survey conducted in
Northeast Florida counties from
September 2002 through January
2003, area citizens need to take
advantage of all the free programs
available.
In a random phone survey of
500 Nassau County adults, 37.7 per-
cent were found to be overweight
and 26.9 percent obese. Seventy-
nine percent reported they did not
engage in regular vigorous physical
activity (at least 20 minutes a day,
three days a week) and 76.6 percent
said they ate fewer than five serv-
ings of fruit and vegetables a day.
Thafs a trend Jones has noticed.
"If you're eating most of your meals
at fast food joints, you're not getting
your fruits and vegetables," she
said.
What concerns Ngo-Seidel,
beyond the statistical health habits
of the county's adults, is what it
could mean for the children fol-
lowing in their footsteps.
"We are seeing this in children
and older adults," she said of the


embarrassed to join a gym or start
an exercise program, Keith said "at
the very least they need to come in
and sit down with a personal train-
er and talk about some of the basics
and work with some of our fitness
consultants. They need to realize
that they're the same people that
are in the gym."

"These organizations want to

The commission approved an
application to rezone eight acres on
the west side of Mentoria Road in
Yulee from agricultural to com-
mercial land use. A hotel is planned
for the property.
The commission approved a

~9 Bank robber got $14,000


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader


Fernandina Beach detectives
are asking the FBI for assistance
locating a man who reportedly
took more than $14,000 in a May
17 bank robbery, according to
police Lt. Jim Coe.
No arrests have been made in
the case, and police are still search-
ing for the robber of Atlantic Coast
Federal on the corner of Centre
and Eighth Streets in downtown
Fernandina Beach.


According to a police report
released this week, the man
walked up to a bank teller, handed
her a black, leather binder and
ordered her to give him money as
quickly as she could. The teller
told police the man said, "Don't
make me shoot you," several times
to her while she was putting cash
into the binder.
After the man left, the bank
teller checked her drawer and
found $14,754 missing. She told
police she did not see the suspect
holding a weapon during the rob-


bery.
The robbery occurred about
1:30 p.m., and the suspect was seen
running from the bank near
Seventh Street Police believe the
suspect may have left the area in a
light colored, possibly silver, vehi-
cle.
The suspect is described as a
black male, approximately 6 feet
tall and weighing 130 to 150
pounds. He was wearing dark
pants, a buttoned-up long-sleeved
shirt over a T-shirt and gloves.

17 sex offenders located


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

Seventeen local registered sex
offenders were located recently as
part of a statewide effort involving
several law enforcement agencies.
The Nassau County Sheriff's
Office worked with the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement,
state attorney's offices, Florida
Department of Corrections and the
U.S. Marshal's Service to find sex
offenders who were not properly
registered.
The operation was dubbed the
Sexual Offender Apprehension
Program; nicknamed SOAP,
and it ran from April 15 through
May 15.
FDLE spokesperson Kristen
Perezluha said the program was
initiated as a result of the recent
murders of Jessica Lunsford and
Sarah Lunde, allegedly at the hands
of convicted sex offenders.
"In light of the recent tragedies
... we all worked together to find
convicted sex offenders who had
absconded from registration,"
Perezluha said.
In Florida, 537 sex offenders
were located as a result of SOAP;
203 of those were arrested. Locally,
17 sex offenders were located and
three were arrested. There are a
total of 121 registered sex offend-
ers in Nassau County.
Perezluha said missing sex
offenders are not automatically
arrested. "Every case is different,"
she said. "Some of the people we
found were where they were sup-
posed to be, they just weren't reg-

Johnny Lee

Avery Dexmond Braswell
Simmons, 28,
and John
Edward Gentry, 32, were arrested
in Nassau County as a result of the
program. Gentry and Simmons are
being held at the Nassau County
Jail on charges of failing to register
as a sex offender. Braswell is in
custody in Duval County on
charges of failure of a registered
sex offender to update his driver's
license, possession of cocaine and
violating probation.
Braswell was convicted of lewd
and lascivious battery on a 12- to 15-
year-old victim. Simmons was con-
victed of using the Internet to solic-
it or attempt to solicit a minor for
sex or lewdness. Gentray was con-

with a victim under the age of 16.

(visions in the state statutes.
i Robert Govette. pastot of Livihg
'WateirWorld Outreach Center, one
of those leading the fight against
Adam & Eve, said Wednesday the
county has done its part in adopting
a regulatory ordinance and zoning
amendments. He called this a
"great victory" because it will make
it more difficult for sexually ori-
ented businesses to locate in
Nassau County in the future. And
while the county may not be able to
do more than regulate Adam &
Eve, he said this is not the end of
the road as far as some members of
the community are concerned.
"We look for more opposition
from community. This is not over
with," Goyette said. "The county
has done its part, but the people
who opposed it still feel that way
about this kind of business. It's not
about the people who run it, it's
about the nature of the business
and what it brings into the com-
munity."
Under the amendments unani-
mously adopted Monday, a sexual-
ly oriented business will be per-
mitted in "commercial intensive"
and "industrial warehouse" zoning
classifications, or as a conditional
use in a "commercial general" zone.
That condition would have to be
approved by the county's condi-
tional use and variance board.
The distance restrictions pre-
vent any new sexually oriented
businesses from locating within
2,500 feet of any residence, church,
public and private elementary or
secondary schools, pre-kinder-
garten, kindergarten, licensed day-
care centers, another sexually ori-
ented business or any business that
sells alcohol.

Hilliard Middle Senior High
School held commencement exer-

staff and faculty, board members

during the ele-

graduation earli-
er in the week.
Guest speaker
was Rick Keffer,
i owner of the
Dodge-Chrysler-
Jeep dealerships
in Fernandina
Seymour Beach and
Callahan. The
businessman
gave the senior class some tips on
what it takes to be successful in life
and the future.
Keffer encouraged the senior
classmates to keep in touch with
each other and not to let their lives
after high school allow their rela-
tionships to die out. He said they
should write letters and send e-
mails to each other.
People that have close friends,
the support of family and their
health, end up getting a real win in
life, he said.
Keffer answered questions put
to him earlier by the senior class,
one of which was how he achieved
his own success.
Calling them the three keys to
success, Keffer told the seniors that
the first was to be persistent.
Secondly, since successful peo-
ple have goals and are persistent in
achieving them, they should set
aggressive personal and financial
goals for their own destinies, which
he recommended be daily, weekly
or monthly. "The most important
person in your world is looking at
you in the mirror," he said.

how they treat other people.

Young authors bask in job well done


LIL SPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent

The Braddock Publishing Co.
at Callahan Middle School held
it's 13th Annual Authors' Party
Tuesday, honoring about 90
authors from the Cherokee Team
who completed and turned in the
books they've been working on so
hard for the last nine weeks.
Parents, teachers and other guests
joined with the authors to cele-
brate the completion of their
books, eat some pizza and for the
presentation of awards.
The young authors' books will
account for their entire grade for
the past 9 weeks, said English
teacher and president of the
Braddock Publishing Co., Lissa
Braddock.
In addition to being graded for
appearance, the three stages that
go into making the books are
assessed points and must meet
specific deadlines.
Braddock developed a system
to reward students for meeting
those deadlines a poster where
all their names are shown. Every
time the students meet a deadline
they get a blue star next to their
name; a red one if late by one day,
a green one for 2 days, etc.
"They love it and most students
want to see blue stars by their
names," she said.
When the books are complet-
ed, Braddock said the students are
often more proud and excited
about their appearance than the
grade.
Students who decide to become
an author for the Braddock
Publishing Co. must sign a con-
tract. Then Braddock assigns each
with an illustrator and gives both
applications for employment.
She allows each student only 5
minutes to come up with a book
title.
Students have to figure out
what their stories are going to be
about and write a rough draft. It's
edited, they type it out and speci-
fy the number of pages.
Everything is done on drawing
pad paper first.
Each book will include a book
jacket with flaps. Braddock encour-
ages the young authors to make
the covers bright and colorful to
draw attention at a distance.
And, according to the contract,
each book will be 24 pages in
length.
The front flap gives a synopsis
of the story and the back flap con-
tains a biography about the author,
or perhaps they might decide to
.-,',place a photograph of themselves
there instead.
The pages are then stitched
with carpet thread into a hard

OPINION


U -


We are not the world
Re: "Real Debate on UN" (May
13).
The creation of the United
Nations, at U.S. initiative, in San
Francisco in 1947, has historically
proved to be one of the greatest of
America's "diplomatic wins" of the
20th Century. And the U.S. has not
been shy over these nearly 60 years
in vigorously thrusting the UN into
multiple and incredibly difficult sit-
uations, where we ourselves feared
to tread, i.e, "to carry our water,"
and to fulfill our foreign policy
objectives.
It's saddening to note that UN-
bashing is seen as a necessary com-
ponent of a dramatically new, and
most certainly radical, U.S. thrust
toward unilateralism, and pre-emp-
tiveness, in foreign affairs. To me
this translates into suicidal pre-
determined isolationism. Attempts
to destroy the credibility, and admit-
tedly limited effectiveness, of the
United Nations leads us as a nation
just where?
This trend is most certainly
causing our growing isolation from
a much greater world out there,
upoh which we, as a nation and a
people, are increasingly depend-
ent According to the Wall Street
Journal we are the largest debtor
nation in the world; we're talking
"trillions," not mere "billions" of
dollars of debt we owe to foreign
investors. That's real power that
far exceeds, and outflanks, any
defensee" we might expect from
our military establishment
This compulsion to reply is


based on my having spent the total-
ity of my adult life immersed in for-
eign affairs, as a career foreign
service officer, when the foreign
affairs of our nation were conduct-
ed on a non-partisan, largely non-
political, pragmatic basis of what
is in our best national interest. This
has changed dramatically during
the current administration. We, the
USA, are not "the world." We are an
important part of it, a key player,
and would be well advised not to
overplay, and to lose, the key role
we do have.
That put aside, it would be great
to see Nassau County citizens wake
up to the fact that we have our own
political plate full with local issues
of more direct importance to us as
a community. "Democracy" starts
at home, and before any of us
(myself included) get tempted to
"sound off' on foreign affairs mat-
ters, or sundry national matters,
we might take a measure of how
well we're doing in terms of our
own county, and city governance.
Whether we like it or not we are
only part of a greater nation, and a
greater world. Let's get used to it.

Thanksgiving
Re: "Shame on us" (May 13).
My daughter Christal has hunt-
ed since she was a young child and
enjoys nature and the outdoors.
Christal has also played baseball,
and enjoys fishing. Activities such
as these are positive influences in
kids' lives.


Christal hunts because she
enjoys hunting, and the deer and
turkey provide food for the table.
The word of God tells us in I
Timothy 4-verses 4,5 "Every crea-
ture of God is good, and nothing to
be refused, if it be received with
thanksgiving: for it is sanctified by the
word of God and prayer"
Christal has taken gun and
hunter safety courses, and displays
good sportsmanship and respect
for others. ,
The U.S. Constitution gives her
the right to bear arms.
The good Lord willing, she will
continue to hunt and I will fry veni-
son with rice, gravy and mustard
greens. We will sit around the fam-
ily table thanking God for it all, and
maybe even talk about the hunt of
the day!

Planning standards
Re: "The circus is in town," May
11.
Please accept my sincerest apol-
ogy for your not having a pleasant
experience at the planning depart-
ment during your February visit.
At the direction of the city
manager, the planning department
was temporarily by appointment
only on Fridays. Our office hours
are 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday
through Friday. Please note, how-
ever, it is standard policy that prior
to submitting an application an


appointment be set to meet with a
planner.
My interpretations of height and
setback requirement of the current
code have not changed, and it was
made public at a special city com-
mission meeting both verbally and
with graphics by Power Point pres-
entation. If you should remain con-
fused, I'm more than happy to pro-
vide clarification. As an additional
note, the planning department is
eager to adopt an updated land
development code for the city of
Fernandina Beach.
From my viewpoint, it is not just
the expert's report ("City erred on
houses, report says," May 4) that
concludes that the setback require-
ment as it relates to height for the
homes on South Fletcher are in
violation. On more than one occa-
sion, members from the Planning
Advisory Board and members of
the public wrote to city officials
pointing to the error used in cal-
culating the mid-roof. I have an obli-
gation to make certain plans com-
ply with city ordinances and laws,
no matter how unpopular or hard it
may be to take and to make a stand.
The expert simply verified it. '
It is my hope that your next visit
to the planning department is met
with a courteous and professional
staff and that all your planning and
zoning questions are answered.

Planning Supervisor
City of Fernandina Beach


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Road work
The knee-jerk reaction to the
proposed 5-cent rise in the county
gas tax is normal when the facts
related to the need had not been
widely known before the proposal
by the County Administrator Mike
Mahaney.
Mike Boyle's May 13 column
on higher gas tax ("Higher gas
taxes? Are they crazy'), his April 29
column on "The strange life of a
county surtax and the News-
Leader's editorial of May 18 ("Ifnot
a gas tax, then what?") should be
read together. The three express
the growing voter realization that
once elected, the temptation to
change/alter funding to meet some
new crisis becomes more impor-
tant than the original object for a
tax. It doesn't matter the govern-
mental level, local, state or federal.
One of the most important
duties of county government is to
preserve assets. Our road network
including the easement is by far
the most valuable asset in the coun-
ty, yet the 1-cent county surtax orig-
inally dedicated tp maintain the
roads has been morphed into pay-
ing for fire-rescue nedis, also
important but not the original
rationale for the increased tax. The
5-cent addition to th gas tax would
raise about the same amount as
the 1-cent additional sales tax.
So first, the commission should
re-look at the proposal of several
years ago for municipal services
benefit tax tailored to geographic
areas. This way new or expanded
service would be paid for by those

in the area, not subsidized by areas
that have not increased service
needs. Politically this may cost but
this is what we elected commis-
sioners for.
Second, any new tax should be
subject to a countywide referen-
dum with provisos: that the funds
collected would be dedicated to
specific end use, i.e., roads; that
any diversion of those funds would
automatically sunset the tax; that
once that specific project has been
completed, the tax would be sun-
setted. This concept if adopted
would help restore some faith in
our elected officials, and avoid
much of the reason that the coun-
ty finances are in such a mess.
Third, Mr. Mahaney's plan to
maintain our 400-mile paved road
network is a long-term rebuilding in
segments of about 13 miles per
year based on funds available.
However, this plan does not pre-
vent the rapid deterioration in the
meantime. Many of the roads were
built years ago to standards below
what is required to service heavy
trucks. So, therefore, a study of
road weight capacity should be
made and a weight limit imposed
on those substandard roads until
they are rebuilt. The state of
Georgia has 'a simple weight limit
enforcement method based on the
number of axles on a vehicle. The
axle system solved the problem of
portable scales for enforcement.
Our deputies could then enforce
the weight limits and use a photLodf
the vehicle as evidence.

Memorial Day

'Places in the earth

signed with blood'
Editor's note: Memorial Day, when Americans
honor their war dead, is Monday Fernandina
Beach will hold its annual service from 11 a.m. to
noon at the foot of Centre Street. The following
poems, by ex-Marine and published poet Calvin
Atwood ofAmelia Island, are presented in honor of
Memorial Day.
Letterto mygrandsonrSam
Because you live so close to Greece and stu4y
Heroes of the ancient world,
I want to tell you now
Some history Iforgot, and forgot
To tell your father and my other sons:.
Some sixty years before you came around
Joined agang of men
Who wore the forest green, and sometimes camouflage
And known to all the world
As just the proud, the few.
They were. And still they are the warriors
For this modern world. J watched them battle
For a iin iu sl.'nd n.' r' r
Ae'idtess phr~ 'of i,...,
Braver than men have any. rigt to be,
They ran right into Hades .
To find Valhalla, Greeks from the plains of Marathon,
And Olympus with a wreath of clouds around
Or maybe just some other God what could they know
Beyond the grave simplicity
Of being beautiful and brave?
No one could have stopped them.
Ancient warriors never fought like these:
Tanks, machine guns, hand grenades,
Flamethrowers scorching the land, the enemy,
Killing with bayonets
With hearts and hands.
For all my time of life,
I have an honor Sam,
Because Isaw them fight,
Watched them disappear in bunkers and in caves
Everywhere they spurted blood
Showered gray ash with rivers ofblood,'
Leaked some on me -I can show,
You places in the earth
Still signed with blood. So many died.
They didn't get to have a grandson, Sam,
Never knew the blessing of a child. They just died.
Died for you Sam, died for Jason, and Sylvia too.
Learn about them Sam:
They are Patroklus for me.
My Hercules, Horatio at the Gates,
Jarheads, Leathernecks, sea-going bellhops
Just Marines. Not so many ofthem anymore.
Just a few, but still and always, Sam,
Oh, so very proud.

To Young Marines in the Middle East
Our hearts run with your hearts,
All of our hearts,
We walk everywhere you walk
We sling your guns over our shoulders
We slide ammo in chambers whenyou do -
Your targets are our targets
Your fears the same we knew -
Whatever small cartridge of bravery
That was ours belongs to you today
Your pack is heavy on our back
We share this mission, this day
The crash, the smoke, the flame you see
Blows in our eyes.
Nothing has changed -
The flame you see is our flame -
Blood streaming down your leg is our blood -
Warms our limbs -
Nothing has changed

Because everywhere you go, we go
When you fall down, wego down with you
All the Marines, All the old Marines -
We are not far away.

Marine Division during World War II. His books of
poetry include "A Squadron of Roses."

Trouble here in Paradise?


Since my wife and I arrived on Amelia Island a
few years ago, I have had the extreme good
fortune to become a member of several
men's non-denominational Christian groups.
They are somewhat informal and loose-knit, but
they provide a warm sense of camaraderie for men
who (for the most part) are entering or already
enjoying their senior years (commonly known as
"retirement"). One group doesn't even have an "offi-
cial name," and yet it has met on Wednesday morn-
ings for nearly 10 years.
However, don't let the average age of the mem-
bers in these groups mislead you into thinking their
contributions to our community are restricted to sip-
ping coffee and reminiscing about "the good old
days." A couple of weeks ago a handful of these
men, along with their female counterparts, organ-
ized the National Day of Prayer Breakfast which
brought over 500 of your neighbors to The Ritz-
Carlton Amelia Island to hear nationally syndicated
columnist Cal Thomas. It's events like this that rein-
force the fantasy that our island community truly is
a "paradise."
But it was a scant 25 years ago when Time
Magazine featured the infamous cover story,
"Paradise Lost?" describing the decline of the good
life in South Florida (Miami in particular). Having
just been assigned to the Miami FBI Division when
the story broke, I had a front-row seat over the next
15 years to witness the decline of the quality of life
on several levels. There were daytime gun battles
between drug gangs in upscale mall parking lots.
Public corruption in county and local government
became so blatant that some candidates would list
their pending indictments in their campaign litera-
ture much like an "endorsement." The public
schools, health care systems and other social servic-
es collapsed under the crush of illegal immigration.
And of course traffic and road conditions.became
intolerable. It was little wonder then that Nassau
County and Amelia Island looked like "Paradise


VIEWPOINT/ED GANDY/YULEE



Wild salvos

After reading Mike Boyle's columns the past
two weeks and watching him wildly fire
salvo after salvo toward the Nassau County
Commission, it reminds me of a heated bat-
tle my battleship was in during the invasion of
Normandy at Omaha Beach, then later up the coast
at Cherbourg. We decided to engage the German
shore batteries on this heavily fortified coast
The records show that the Germans responded
quickly by firing 65 150mm shells at us, often firing.
three shells at a time. Some would straddle the ship,
some would fall in the water a few yards from us,
sometimes splashing water in our faces. All told 63
shells fell short, missing their mark. However, two
shells hit the ship; one went through the bow and
did not explode, the other found its mark and hit the
bridge of our ship.
Mike Boyle continues week after week firing
salvo after salvo al the county conmiission. Point is.
Il. lsulEy issJlis mi'ark and rarely scores a hit
whi e cormp anIng, about the commission as a whole.
This scatter-gun type of approach may be popular
while trying to entertain his readers but is rarely
accurate and never tells the story as it should be.
For example, Mr. Boyle mentions the $800,000
stolen from the county coffers, then asks, "Shouldn't
we try to figure out how the money was stolen
before we sweeten the pot for the next potential
thief?" He leads one to believe that (1) he doesn't
know which section of government was responsible
for the theft, (2) they haven't discovered where the
money went I am sure that Mr. Boyle is aware of
this, it seems he just wants to keep stirring the pot
and play to the emotions of the readers, never mind
the truth. .
If Mike Boyle reads the very paper he writes for,
he knows that the clerk of court (no blame here)
keeps track of the county's money and is the banker
for same. The clerk is a constitutional officer elected
by the people and the county commission has no
control over that office, therefore they would not
know of any wrongdoing in that particular office.
He then takes his scattergun and likens all of the
commissioners to gambling addicts and embezzlers.
Wow, that covers a lot of ground. These people have
spouses and children, I wonder how the whole fami-
ly feels when they get home. Usually when people
cannot find the words to explain, oppose something
or express their feelings in a professional way they
resort to slamming others, cast doubt on their hon-
esty or make all kinds of accusations against the peo-
ple or proposal. What I can't understand here is that
Mike Boyle in my opinion is an intelligent person, so
why would he resort to tactics like this rather than
explain both sides to the readers so they may get a
clear understanding of their options?
Another thing, I can understand someone oppos-
ing the gas tax but for the life of me I don't know
why someone would want to mislead our own peo-
ple. Case in point, Doug Adkins in his letter to the
editor Wednesday states that it will cost him and his
wife $1,800 a year in extra gas tax. Hogwash, Doug
.needs to check his calculator as well as his gas


Found" when we arrived from
the war zone to the south of us.
But recently it has become
.. p apparent that all is not well here
in this newfound "paradise," as
witnessed by the following
news items from this paper in
the last 30 days:
S* Little League coaches
have been arrested for rape and
drug charges.
Mike Boyle A young woman is charged
with murder after selling
methadone to a man who over-
WAITA dosed on it.
MINUTE Four city police officers
are under investigation for sexu-
al relations with an underage girl.
There was a bank robbery in the heart of the
historic district.
A sheriff's deputy has been charged with
fraudulently buying and selling thousands of cell
phones for personal profit while using his depart-
ment's government discount.
Another deputy has been sentenced for using
his children as human shields to hold off a SWAT
team that was trying to arrest him.
A criminal investigation has shown over
$800,000 has been stolen from the clerk of the
court's office.
A summer youth league football game ends in
a riot.
Scam artists have bilked elderly residents out
of thousands of dollars. .
Convenience stores and gas stations are
becoming regular targets of.armed robbers.
The local police reports list dozens of resi-
dents arrested on drug charges.
Some of you are probably saying that people like
me have no right to complain since things "were
pretty darn good until you outsiders started moving


in," and you may have a point. But I would ask you
to take another look at the preceding issues, and I
think you will discover that the vast majority (per-
haps all) of them were committed by longtime resi-
dents, and not by us "awful newcomers." In the big
picture, isn't it really less important to pin the blame
on a certain demographic group than it is to recog-
nize we do have problems, to identify them, and
then unite to address and resolve them?
Whenever I get on my soapbox on issues involv-
ing our community, I am reminded of an old "Pogo"
cartoon where the lead character examines a prob-
lem and proudly proclaims, "We have met the prob-
lem, and it is us!" I suspect that is a universal truth
that applies to most communities, most problems
and most people.
Having watched the decline and fall of our old
South Florida community, I certainly don't want to
see that same painful process take place here. But
it's important to remember that we didn't go to
sleep one night in "Paradise" and wake up the next
morning in "Hades." No, it happened in relatively
small increments with a little bit of corruption here,
a small development of homes overthere, a blind
eye turned toward code enforcement on one small
business and trees illegally removed "by that guy
down the block." Sound familiar?
If all of us are at least part of "the problem," then
all of us can help to find the solutions. If we can
bring 500 people together for a wonderful event like
a prayer breakfast, then hopefully we, can bring a
fraction of that number together to safeguard,this
paradise we love to call "home." Those who were
responsible for organizing the breakfast will tell you
that the prayers of many were the reason for its
great success. Perhaps it's time to apply that same
strategy to the other issues in our community.
As a sage once said, "It couldn't hurt."

years as an FBI agent. His column appears Fridays.

Emily the intern loves her role with festival


Emily Hickman
InternAmelia Island
Chamber Music Festival
From the moment Emily
Hickman arrived on Amelia
Island last June she was "Emily
the intern." Many people still
don't know her last name. The
energetic college senior at
Denison University is currently
in her second year of interning
with the Amelia Island Chamber
Music Festival. The festival, now
in its fourth year, has gained
international respect for its
unique venues, creative program-
ming and world class musicians.
Four years ago, Christopher
Rex (principal cellist with the
Atlanta Symphony Orchestra,
founder and artistic director of
the festival) came to a willing
community of volunteers with
the innovative idea of a chamber
music festival. The small, inti-
mate concerts are held in unique


with
Dickie And


and often historic venues and
have been successful from the
very beginning.
The festival kicks off Sunday
with a traditional free concert for
the community. The String Fling
-with the Amelia Pops String
Quartet will begin at 2 p.m. at
Central Park on Atlantic Avenue.
In case of rain, it will be at the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation
Center. The festival runs through
June 19. Some of the talented
musicians appearing this year
include Jean-Yves Thibaudet,
Peter "PDQ Bach" Schickele,
Horacio Gutierrez, TakAcs
Quartet, Mark O'Connor and


Jacksonville's Ritz Chamber
Players.
So how did Emily Hickman
become Emily the intern? It
started when Susan Goldman,
president of the festival board,
received a call from Emily inquir-
ing about an internship.
Goldnian thought to herself.
Internship we don't have
interns... but why not?
Hickman is a music major at
Denison University in Granville,
Ohio, where her family lives. In
need of an internship that would
match her interest in music and
event management, she followed
up on her mother's suggestion to
contact Amelia Island's annual
festival. So she made the call and
became the festival's first intern.
Hickman plays the violin and
has discovered bluegrass music,
which she loves. While doing her
internship, she jams on 'Monday
nights at The Florida House with
locals who also love to play blue-


Pastor spent week in Missouri


The Rev. Frank Camarotti, longtime dedicated
pastor of Blackrock Baptist Church has lots to
write about "Diane and I had an awesome vaca-
tion! We spent a week in Branson, Mo., and of
course took in several shows. It was very relaxing,
entertaining and fun. On our way home, we were
able to spend some time with our grandchildren,
Aaron and Leah, in Little Rock, Ark. Enjoyed them
immensely! Thankfully, we had a safe trip.
"At this writing I am back at the office excited
about what God is doing and going to do! April 24
was Bill Heisers' last Sunday with us as music and
youth minister. We had a farewell fellowship for
them. They will be missed. We pray God's speed
as God leads them to new ministry. We have
formed a search committee to fill the staff posi-
tion.

"As you can tell, there is a lot going on. The fol-

don't leave God out of your plans. God bless."

-The Reward is Immeasurable." May 18 at was
the "Awana Program" followed by an ice cream
social. All church members and family were invit-
ed to see what a wonderful year the kids had
learning God's word. Next year will be Dick and
Debbie Harper's last year leading Awana. We are
looking for God to lead someone or some grace
group to stand beside them during the 2005-6 year
and then take over the leadership the following
year. This ministry is a blessing and the Hoppers
want to help others keep God's word flowing into
our children's hearts. The 3- and 4-year-old
"Cubbies" will not have a leader after Rosie Kent
steps down at the end of this year. We will need
two leaders to step up before next July, or there
will be no "Cubby" level in Awana for the 2005-6
year. Please pray about these ministries and let
Dick and Debbie Hopper and Brother Rick Lee
know if you are able to help.
I received a long, newsy letter from my friends,
the Rev. Steve and Billie Dees, who are happily
settled in Savannah, Ga. He's serving as associate
pastor of worship and development for a new
church called the Church at Godley Station. This
church is a contemporary congregation in associa-
tion with Bull Street Baptist Church, a large estab-
lished church located in downtown Savannah.
Pastor Earnie Pirkle is the pastor of both congre-
I nations. "Though our congregation is small, God

We love you!"
First Baptist Church "Brotherhood Group"
hosted the fourth annual "Ladies Night Banquet"
on May 9 in the church fellowship hall with guest
speaker Dr. Judith Boyle and special music by the
popular Fernandina Beach "FBC Men's Quartet."
All ladies of the church were invited to enjoy the
food, fun and fellowship while the men served
them.
Vacation Bible School is June 5-10 (9 a.m. to
noon morning session and 6-8:30 p.m. evening).
"This Hope" will be in concert at the Father's

Youth to "World Changers" is June 18-25!
These youth set aside everything and help people

Think of your spirit like an MP3 player waiting to be filled


T echnologically chal-
lenged is a term that
has been used to
describe me. I dislike
rapid advances in technology
because it frequently leaves me
feeling left behind. Perhaps this is
why I refuse to remove the outdat-
ed computer from my desk; since
it has files from 1992 that are diffi-
cult to transfer. In fact, the
thought of new technology pur-
chases is depressing.
Nonetheless, I broke down
recently and bought an MP3 play-
er to record my favorite music
tunes for working out, riding in
the car or studying in my office.


'.A The only
drawback
was, I could-
'en't program
the darn
thing.
This may
be why God
provides us
with off-
Conrad spring. I
Sharps handed the
...rp MP3 to my
teenage son
PULPIT and asked
NOTES him to pro-
gram it for
me and within a matter of hours


he returned with said device. He
sat down and patiently showed
me how to use it Leaving me with
my new digital wonder he walked
away with a playful smile that I
did not fully appreciate until sev-
eral minutes later, when I realized
that his music choices were sever-
al generations ahead of what I was
looking forward to hearing. I had
been outflanked in the program-
ming phase. Fortunately, I still
have a few leverages in our par-
ent/child relationship that
allowed for me to persuade him to
reprogram my device.
In many ways we are all pro-
grammed in life. We are hopefully


nurtured in positive and healthy
ways by parents and responsible
adult role models. We receive
training either at school or work.
Our friends often have a huge
influence, and as a pastor I cer-
tainly pray that many people open
their hearts and minds to the
Word of God, the power of the
Holy Spirit, and the community of
faith to nurture and direct our
lives in ways that honor and glori-
fy God. In all these ways we are
encultured, nurtured and perhaps
even programmed, if you will.
As children of God, our goal is
to be nurtured and grow in the
likeness of Christ. This demands


transformation. No one achieves
this by his or her own power, but
only by the power of the Holy
Spirit. When we submit our lives
to Christ, the Spirit begins a
reprogramming of our hearts and
our minds. listen to what Paul
wrote to the church in Corinth:
"And we, who with unveiled faces
all reflect the Lord's glory, are being
transformed into his likeness with
ever-increasing glory, which comes
from the Lord, who is the Spirit."
(2 Corinthians 3:18)
Let us not be so proud as to
deny that we are influenced in life
by many forces: natural, cultural,
spiritual; etc. Indeed, since there


are many competing sources of
influence in our world let us care-
fully discern who or what we
allow to motivate, direct, or per-
haps even modify our lives. When
a choice is possible, let us choose
wisely.
Today, turn to God's Word
made known in scripture and live
in that Word everyday. Open your
mind, heart and will in prayer;
allow the Spirit to change you,
transforming you into the like-
ness of Christ and the ever-
increasing glory of our God.
The Rev. Conrad C. Sharps is
pastor of First Presbyterian Church
in Fernandina Beach.

10A HOMES


FRIDAY, MAY 27,2005/News-Leader


Unmarried couples should know


all oftheir house title options


CHARLES J. KOVALESKI
For the News-Leader

How the title on your new
home is listed on the property's
deed is one of the most important
decisions a couple makes when
buying a home. The decision can
have significant consequences as
life goes on if one of the part-
ners dies, for instance, or if an
unmarried pair splits up or a mar-
ried couple divorces.
With nearly 10 percent of
homes purchased today by
unmarried couples, alternative
methods of taking title have
become more common. These
can include listing both names as
"tenants in common" or as "joint
tenants" in a partnership agree-
ment.-
Unmarried couples buying a
home together should have the
equivalent of a prenuptial agree-
ment, which should cover issues
such as how much of the house
each partner owns, how the title
is to be listed on the deed (both
names should be listed), and
what happens to the house if you
separate.
Married couples usually take
title as "tenants by the entirety,"
which protects the property if
one partner faces financial diffi-
culties and automatically entitles


a surviving spouse to complete
ownership of the property.
A real estate attorney can pro-
vide counsel to couples on the
impact and ramifications for all of
the title options, including:
Tenants in common. Under
this arrangement buyers own an
equal or unequal percentage
interest in the property, which
they can separately sell or
bequeath to their heirs. Most
unmarried couples chose to take
title to property in this way. If one
owner dies, the decision about
what will become of his or her
portion of the house is deter-
mined in the deceased owner's
will. For those in a second mar-
riage, this is especially important.
If a surviving spouse is left off a
deed and not named explicitly in
a will, he or she can face a legal
challenge from the deceased
spouse's children from a former
marriage.
Partnership agreement
Unmarried buyers are increas-
ingly opting for a partnership
agreement, which details who
pays for expenses, the mortgage,
taxes and utilities, and how an
eventual house sale would be
organized. If two buyers split up,
leaving only one to pay the mort-
gage, a partnership agreement
might require the non-paying

buyer to give up a portion of the
proceeds when the house is sold.
Other provisions might include
multiple appraisals to determine
buy-out figures should one part-
ner wish to sell to the other.
Tenancy by the entirety.
Most married couples who don't
live in community property states
generally use this form of owner-
ship (Florida is not a community
property state). The married cou-
ple is viewed as the owner of the
property. Upon the death of one,
the survivor becomes the sole
owner and confirms this with an
affidavit of death and continuous
marriage.
Living trust: Although it is
more expensive to set up initially,
property owners can choose to
hold title in a revocable living
trust. The living trust can be
changed or revoked, much like a
will, to determine who receives
title to the property after an
owner dies. Once the owner dies,
however, the living trust becomes
irrevocable, and the successor's
trustee, such as a spouse, adult
child or bank trustee, takes over
and administers the trust assets.
If you have any questions
about how to take title to your
property or how it will affect your
estate planning goals, you should
consult with your real estate
attorney either before or immedi-
ately after you close on your new
house. Remember that once one
of you dies, it will be too late to
change how title is held.

Q.The hickory trees in my

Talk early spring
when tem-
peratures are low but moisture is
high. This year we have had an
abnormally cool spring which
contributed to the large downy
mildew outbreak on the hickory
trees around your neighbor-
hood. You can expect the disease
to reappear next year if weather.
conditions are repeated. Downy
mildew will not kill the tree and.
is really more of a nuisance than
a true problem. During the sum-
mer the leaves will shrivel and
drop and this would be the best

pitiful looking and I'm wonder-
, ing what I could do to perk it up
some. HP


A .Swedish ivy is often used
*as an indoor hanging plant
but it can be placed outside if the
conditions are appropriate. Ideal
temperatures are 55 to 60
degrees at night and up to 80
degrees during the day. Since
most of our summer days are
above 80 degrees this plant
should be grown in an area that
never receives direct light This
would be especially true during
the summer. Keep the soil even-
ly moistened in summer but
drier during winter. Do not over-
water because this could cause
root rot. Fertilize regularly,
spring through fall, with a house
plant fertilizer used according to
label directions. The plant needs
pinching to keep it bushy. If the
bottom leaves turn yellow and
fall off, reduce watering.
Propagation is by cuttings, ideal-
ly you might consider taking the
plant indoors. If you need out-
door hanging plants you might
consider herbs, begonias, spider
plants, ferns or another ivy plant

Q. I need to block out the
*view of my neighbors'
yard. What kind of shrubs grow
best in this area? NB

.You mentioned red tip
A :.Photinia but as you have
...noticed many nurseries have
stopped stocking them because'
they can contract a serious dis-
ease called fire blight. However,
we have several other plants that
grow quite tall and should pro-
vide you with a good screen
cover. Think about wax myrtle,
viburnum or pittosporum.
Southern wax myrtle, Myrica
cerifera, takes a variety of soils,
grows in full to partial sun and
can reach heights 12-15 feet
Plants should be placed 10 feet
apart, watered well at establish-
ment but will then need no fur-
ther care. Wax myrtle is moder-
ately drought tolerant but can
tolerate salt spray. It may have
an occasional worm defoliate
leaves but those can be easily
pruned out to control any poten-
tial infestation. Sweet viburnum,
Viburnum odoratissium, grows
quickly in full sun or partial
shade in a wide variety of soils. It
is moderately drought tolerant
but it is a poor choice for salty
areas. This plant can reach
heights of 18 feet and will spread
about the same width. It is gen-
erally free of pests and easy to
maintain. Pittosporum,
Pittosporum tobira, grows in par-
tial shade to partial sun on a vari-
ety of soils. They can reach
heights of up to 12 feet with a 12-
18 feet spread. Plants should be
placed 3-5 feet apart. It is highly
drought tolerant so little water is
needed after establishment
Consider using all three and
staggering them between each
other. They all have different col-
ored leaves and the growth
habits are complimentary.

FRIDAY. MAY 27,2005 AROUND TOWN News-Leader


It's about time for this disorder


Thank goodness, I have
just discovered that I
am not a ditz after all,
but suffer from a little
known disorder. You may have
noticed that sometimes there is
an interruption in the smooth
flow of these columns. That's
because I have a timing disorder,
according to Ellen Goodman's
March 28 column. (Perhaps the
first disorder we should address
is that of procrastination her
column festered on my desk for a
couple of months before I got to
it.)
My timing disorder manifests
itself when I live two very event-
filled weeks and roll them into
one. While Ms. Goodman did not
specifically address my malady, I
nave learned enough from her
column to diagnose myself. My
affliction is time compression; I
compress the two weeks I've
lived on our island paradise into
just seven days. It's not that hard
to do: I arise early each day to
ensure that I have enough time
to squeeze all of the fun I have
planned into the short 24 hours
allotted to me. My calendar is
filled with notations about lunch
dates, receptions, book signing
and appointments.
I'm sure you've noticed that I
have neglected to set aside a peri-
od for sleep. I don't have to
schedule any downtime; it hap-
pens spontaneously. I run from
one fun-filled event to another
until I topple over, not unlike a
giant redwood. When I wake up
seven or eight hours later, my fun
starts all over again.


What
makes my
case so
interesting -
at least to
^ '. mthe super-
: market
tabloids is
:_-j that it is usu-
ally experi-
Cara Curtin enced by
vacationers,
the implica-
CITY tion being
SIDEBAR that when
261-5845 we're on our
own turf, we
have a pretty good handle on our
place in the whole space-time
continuum thing. But once we
stray from home base, we find
ourselves arguing that today is
Thursday, not Friday. While
researchers agree that vacation
time decalibrates our internal cal-
endar, they have failed to note
that vacationers with a Saturday
departure compress time. If this
really is Friday, their departure is
tomorrow, not the day after. They
have one less day in Paradise
than they thought
I can't tell you how happy I am
to discover my condition. It
means that I have a disability, and
therefore am not responsible for
missed deadlines, appointments
or birthdays. I wonder if I qualify
for special benefits or monetary
compensation from a govern-
ment agency. Not only would I
avoid the label of ditz, I might be
entitled to a government stipend.
Speaking of the government
and its stipends, I wish my diag-


noses had been tendered before I
retired. As you can imagine, the
Navy takes a dim view about the
untimely execution of one's
duties and assignments. And let's
not even talk about missing a
Thursday meeting because I was
busy living through the second
Wednesday of the week. Nor do I
want to remember the year I
added an extra April so I could
have plenty of time to meet an
important May deadline. Can you
imagine me in charge of D-Day?
We'd be commemorating it in
July or August!
To return to Ms. Goodman
and her discussion of time, she
concentrated her column on
time-bulimia. Time-bulimics stuff
their schedules to bursting.
Then, when reality dawns along
with the day from Heck that
they've scheduled for themselves
- they purge their calendars
down to skin and bones. When
they reschedule all of those com-
mitments, they overstuff a day in
their future, which they will again
have to purge when it comes
around.
This overscheduling of one's


day is called "irrational exuber-
ance." While I am not a time-
bulimic, I am guilty of irrational
exuberance about what I can
accomplish in one day. Only
someone afflicted with this exu-
berance would think that she
could go for her morning walk
before she does laundry, irons,
cleans closets, goes grocery
shopping, takes a nap, and is a
charming and witty dinner com-
panion. Painful experience has
taught me to schedule only two
of these activities: a nap, plus
being charming and witty during
dinner, preferably in a local
restaurant's dining room.
My editor, bless his heart, no
longer calls me to politely inquire
about the status of my column,
which is sometimes days over-
due. I can only imagine the con- .
versation at the News-Leader
when my column is AWOL:
"Cara's goofed up her schedule
again; she'll hand in her column
next week and wonder why we
don't run it." What they don't
realize is that I'm planning to
write it the second Tuesday of
next week.


Can you imagine me in charge ofD-Day?
We'd be commemorating it in July or August!

"Memorial Day Origins." This
interesting information came
from the First Presbyterian
Church at 9 N. 6th St.,
Fernandina Beach. "Memorial
Day emerged from the grim
shadows of the American Civil
War. Before the close of the war,
men began decorating the graves
of soldiers who had died in that
war.
The practice quickly spread,
and a few years later on May 30,
1868, was designated as
Decoration Day, a day for placing
flowers on the graves of Union
and Confederate soldiers
throughout the United States. In
1882, Decoration Day became
known as Memorial Day and sol-
diers who died in other wars
were also honored.
Over the years, it has become
a day when all loved ones who
have died in war and otherwise
are remembered. In 1971, the
United States Congress declared
Memorial Day a national holiday
to be observed annually on the
last Monday in May.
"On this Memorial Day,
remember those who gave their
lives for our country. But also
pray for those who continue serv-
ing to keep America free, espe-
cially those who are in harm's
way."
May our Great Heavenly
Father continue to watch over us
and keep us in His loving care.


Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend.The News-Leader will be closed Monday. May 30

in observance of the holiday. The classified deadline for the June 1 issue is today at 5 pm.

SPORTS MEDICINE
GREGORY SMITH, M.D.



Congress

targets

steroid use
I n a bill proposed by Sen.
JohnMcl'a:in(T (Ari..i.
the NFL, NBA, MLB and
NHL would be required
to test athletes for steroid use
three times during the sea-
son and twice during the off-
season. Suf f pt.-ii.dlic s would
then be in place for those
found with a pi ,siti\ test.
The first offense would
carry a two-year suspension,
the standard in Olympic test-
ing. A life-time ban would '
occur for the second offense.
It has also been suggested
that these rules may apply to
NCAA Division I and II ath-
letics.

Exercise and cancer
Just last week, I reported
on new research showing
how exercise can reduce the
risks by nearly 50 percent of
colon cancer returning in
someone who had previously
been diagnosed and treated
for this condition. Now,
another study has been
released with similar findings
as related to breast cancer.

Studies have
shown that
teens need
at least 8-9
hours of
sleep per night.

A review of more than
3,000 registered nurses who
had been treated for breast
cancer found that walking an
average of three hours a
week reduced their risk of
the cancer returning by near-
ly 50 percent as well. The
authors of the study believe
exercise reduces the risk of
dying from breast cancer
because, as other studies
have shown, it lowers blood
levels of hormones linked to
the disease.

Youths need sleep
When I played high
school basketball, we had
Tuesday night games, and I
remember our coach begged
us not to stay up late watch-
ing Monday Night Football.
He just didn't want us to be
tired the following day.
Now, with early morning
classes, afternoon practices,
homework, television, e-mail,
and Internet, there is a lot to
try to pack into a day, and
teens often epd up staying up
late and sleep patterns suffer.
Studies have shown that
teens need at least 8-9 hours
of sleep per night.
Insufficient sleep has been
shown to have a negative
effect on athletic perform-
ance, with tired athletes
showing "sleep deprivation
impairment."
Coach was right. Get your
rest.

Exercise and pregnancy
Years ago, pregnant
women were advised to rest
their body to avoid any stress
on their or the baby's body.
N,,w ihing. are different.
Many experts would rec-
ommend that a pregnant
woman exercise at least 30
minutes a day with a low
impact activity such as walk-
ing or swimming. Of course,
this is something that you
should discuss with your doc-
tor but, in most cases, exer-
cise would be a recommend-
ed activity during your
pregnancy.

Lady Warriors fall


short in Final Four

Blanked by Plantation American

Heritage 5-0 in Class 3A semifinal


JIM HARVIN
CNIstaff
For the second straight year,
the West Nassau Lady Warriors
bowed out of the Class 3A state
championship Final Four in their
first game, falling to defending
champ Plantation American Heri-
tage 5-0 at the Ed Radice Sports
Complex in Tampa Friday.
Sophomore pitcher Stephanie
Brombacher limited the Lady
Warriors to just two hits and
struck out 14 batters and West
Nassau's usually crisp defense was
anything but, committing three
errors that directly affected the
outcome.
"Half of us were on but the
other half were off," said West
Nassau head coach Candy Hicken,
whose team finished the season
with a 26-5 mark. "I really don't
know what the problem was.
Errors are contagious and one
thing just led to another.
"They're not really better than
us if we bring our 'A' game, but
we didn't bring our 'A' game. They
were the better team today."
Things started off well as West
Nassau's Katie Kelly led off the
game with a single to center field.
But she was erased at second on an
attempted sacrifice bunt and the
Lady Warriors were not able to
score.
m.q ,The-~eond inning !ate",qpu
just as promising as Kala Crosby
led off with a single, but she turned
out to be the last baserunner the
Lady Warriors would have all day.
Brombacher struck out the next
three batters to end the inning.
West Nassau ace Katie Law-
rence, meanwhile, held the Lady
Patriots to no runs and only an
infield hit in their first two at-bats,
and it looked early-on like fans
were in for a dynamic pitching
duel.
But things started going south
for the Lady Warriors in the bot-
tom of the third. After American
Heritage's Richel Silecchia stroked
a one-out single, Amber Lopata
laid down a sacrifice bunt. A throw-
ing error on the play allowed
Silecchia to race all the way to third
while Lopata ended up at second
and the Lady Patriots were in busi-
ness.
Chelsea Ramirez then hit a high
bouncer that deflected off
Lawrence's hand and past Kelly at
shortstop for a hit. Both runners
came home to score as the Lady
Patriots took a 2-0 lead.
In the fourth, American
Heritage made it 3-0. Brombacher
led off with a double and one out
later, courtesy runner Korri Rivera


stole third. Sam Soltis then came to
the plate and executed a squeeze
bunt to score Rivera.
The lead grew to 4-0 in the fifth
when Silecchia, who had two of
American Heritage's six hits, led
off with a double and came around
to score on a passed ball and a wild
pitch.
Two more infield errors by the
Lady Warriors, combined with an
infield hit by Sammy Washburn,
led to the fifth and final run for the
Lady Patriots in the bottom of the
sixth.
It was more than enough for
the hard-throwing Brombacher
(17-2) who came into the game
with 246 strikeouts in only 128 1/3
innings. After Crosby's second-
inning single, Brombacher retired
the last 18 batters she faced in a
row in a dominating performance.
Lawrence gave a valiant effort
but took the loss to finish the year
at 24-4.
"Katie wasn't herself today
which was obvious to anybody
who's seen her pitch," noted
Hicken. "She was battling an ear
infection and a sore throat and was
on antibiotics, and as hot as it was
today that really affected her.
"But in her defense, she still
pitched well enough that if had
played our usual game, we might
still be playing."
American Heritage coach
,MartyTaylor concurred, pointing
i.1 WV. ,-i N;ai_ ajizu's fielding woes as
the difference.
"They're a good team and their
pitcher threw well," he said. "My
philosophy has always been that in
fast-pitch softball, it's not usually a
hit that wins you the game but a
mistake by the other team. They
happened to make one, and it just
opened the floodgates."
American Heritage (25-4) went
on to capture its second straight
state title Saturday with a 1-0, 9-
inning win over Orlando Lake
Highland Prep in the champi-
onship game.
West Nassau, meanwhile, was
left to ponder what might have
been for the second straight sea-
son. Last year, the Lady Warriors
lost 2-0 in 18 innings to Fort Myers
Bishop in the semifinals.
"We've got to get over the
dilemma of this type of game," said
Hicken. "I guess the best analogy
is it's like a classroom. We seem to
ace all of our assignments, but then
we freeze up on the test. I guess
we're just bad test-takers.
"The bottom line is we win as a
team and we lose as a team.
Hopefully we'll get back here again
and do a better job of handling
things next time."

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, the
Florida Foundation for Responsi-
ble Angling and Fort Clinch State
Park will offer a free Kids' Fishing
Clinic for children of all ages at
the Fort Clinch State Park on June
18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This free clinic allows young
people to learn the basics in envi-
ronmental stewardship, fishing
ethics, angling skills, and safety.
In addition, environmental displays
will provide kids with a unique
chance to experience Florida's
marine life firsthand. The Kids'
Fishing Clinics strive toward sev-
eral goals, but the main objective
is to provide children with a posi-
tive fishing experience.
Surveys show that pre-teens
who have such an experience are
more likely to become lifetime
anglers. FFRA also strives to teach
children, at an early age, the vul-
nerability of our state's resources.
If they learn this, perhaps they will
use them responsibly.
Fishing equipment and bait will
be provided for participants to use
during the clinic, but those chil-
dren who own fishing tackle are
encouraged to bring it. A limited
number of rods and reels will be
given away on a first come first
serve basis.
Registration will open at 9 a.m.,
and there is no pre-registration.
An adult must accompany partici-
pants to this catch-and-release
event Participants should remem-
ber to bring sunscreen and drink-
ing water. No alcoholic beverages
will be permitted.
Local sponsors are being con-
firmed. If you or your company
would like to help sponsor this
event, or if you would like to vol-
unteer at the clinic, call Marie
Bucher at 277-7233 or Gail Gainey
at (850) 488-6058.


offshore live bottom reefs are producing
nice catches of kingfish weighing to 20
pounds and a few pods of cigar minnows
are beginning to gather at many fishy off-
shore reefs too. One of the more consistent areas
in recent days to jig up live cigar minnows has
been the STM buoy. Schools of nice size minnows
are holding dead on the bottom and are more fre-
quently jigged by watching your fish finder.
However, if you don't wish to spend the extra
time to catch liveses" simply purchase a box of
frozen cigar minnows and navigate to your
favorite offshore fishing waters.
Excellent catches of grouper and red snapper
are coming from the east Elton Bottom while fish-
ing with frozen cigar minnows. Be sure to keep
your minnows frozen, as those pesky small reef
fish won't bother frozen bait but grouper and
snapper will eat them like a frozen Popsicle.
Jetty fishing has been hot and cold for red
drum, but when the conditions are right, jetty
boats are catching legal size redfish.
"We landed six nice keeper redfish for our
charter aboard the Miss Val just the other day,"
Capt. Benny Hendrix said. "There are plenty of
whiting and small sharks at the jetty rocks too."
Hendrix has been fishing at the tip of the St.
Marys south jetty rocks during the flood tide.
A few nice cobia are being taken from the St.
Marys shipping channel during the flood tide,
Cobia are hanging close to channel buoys and
under rays.
Sea trout fishing remains good in the back


S- waters during the flood tide.
Some of the best sea trout
waters this weekend should
include the broken pilings in
front of the Smurfit-Stone
paper mill at the foot of Egans
g Creek.
High tide this Saturday
l will arrive at 1:28 p.m. and a
low tide at 7:09 a.m. and 6:12
Terry Lacoss p.m.
Redfish are hot and cold
with some of the best action
ON THE coming while casting 1/4-
WATER ounce led head jigs rigged
with chartreuse plastic curly
tails during the flood tide.
Surf fishermen are catching nice size whiting
at the old pipeline and just south of the pipeline to
the fishing pier.
Largemouth bass are still doing well in Lofton
Creek during the flood tide while fishing with live
shiners under a small float. Trick worms are also
doing well during the last portion of the falling
tide.
The News-Leader encourages local anglers to
submit photographs of exceptional catches.-We-wilL__
publish them in this space on Fridays. E-mail photos
to bjones@fbnewsleadercom, mail them to P.O. Box
766, Fernandind Beach, FL 32035, or drop them

PAT FOSTER-TURLEY
For the News-Leader
We are lucky to live
where we do, with
wide-open skies
over our marshes
and beaches, and a resident pop-
ulation of eagles, osprey and
hawks nesting and soaring visi-
bly in our midst. Have you seen_
the large nest on a platform at
the far end of the bridge on the
northern end of 14th Street?
My husband "Bucko" and I
have enjoyed watching this nest-
ing show from a safe non-dis-


turbing distance to the birds -
in our parked car for a number
of seasons now.
Or what about the nest on a
cell tower further down our
island chain, south of Little
Talbot Island, on A1A, have you
seen this one? There are other
osprey nests, too, that the obser-
vant can locate. Take a look
around.
You might see more than
osprey at these nests, though, if
you watch carefully. Two early

begins in a young girl's garden
where fairies and flowers dance
and twirl before your eyes. Then,
only a short time later, dive into
the human subconscious and
embark on a flight of fantasy as it
escapes into the conscious world.
The experience will begin at 5
p.m. in the Camden County High
School Theater on June 4 as
Cumberland Dance Conservatory
presents "In the Garden" and
"Eclectic Rhythms."
"In the Garden" will highlight
the studio's youngest members.
'The little ones are so excited
about having their own special
recital," said Cumberland Dance
Conservatory Director Ginger
Sumner.


Having a separate perform-
ance for the younger children
allows their teachers to theme
the show especially for them,
helping them to understand the
story.
'They love dressing up like
beautiful flowers, whimsical
fairies, sparkling waterfalls, and
sassy ladybugs," said Sumner.
"They understand what those
things are. At such a young age,
they would not be able to under-
stand the complex concepts pre-
sented by the older, more experi-
enced dancers."
The older dancers will present
their show, "Eclectic Rhythms,"
at 6 p.m.

fessionalism and versatility from
our intermediate and advanced
classes, and 'Eclectic Rhythms' is
a product of that expectation,"
said Sumner.
"Eclectic Rhythms" is a
combination of styles and emo-
tions, of darkness and light, of
the certain and uncertain.
It is a blending and merging of
concepts that have been forced
to interact in the subconscious
world of dreams.
Only in this dream world do

such opposing concepts have
continuity.
Sumner elaborates, "Through
music and dance the subcon-
scious is allowed to break
free of its dream world and is
brought to life on stage. It's chal-
lenging for the students to bring
the abstract concepts of a dream
world to an audience, but it's a
challenge they are excited to
accept."

BIRDS Continued from 1B
osprey visited the platform nest
on 14th Street and started
rebuilding the nest that had been
abandoned after the previous
year's nesting season. Also, as
usual, Bucko and I took turns
driving by the nest to check on
the birds' progress. Before a
week of the ospreys' pre-nesting
activity had been completed,
though, there was an abrupt
change. Great horned owls were
in the nest, not osprey!
To our eye, the open platform,
far removed from trees, seemed
an unlikely spot for owls to nest,
but the owls thought otherwise
and moved right in. The evicted
osprey pair perched and hovered
for a few days in the marsh near-
by and eventually started rebuild-
ing another nest from scratch -
right on top of the crane at the
nearby marina. The marina own-
ers were alerted and put flags on
top of it to deter the osprey. It was
sad to have to deprive the osprey
of this new site, but sometime
during their nesting season the
crane would have to be put into
use, and the eggs or chicks would
be dislodged. Better sooner than
later.
Eventually the osprey disap-
peared, and we spent the next
few weeks watching the great
horned owls raise their brood,
another interesting show to be
sure.
But what of the osprey?
Apparently they did not leave
very far or for very long. They
must have been keeping an eye
on the nest. The very day that we
saw the owlets fly off, the osprey
were back. The osprey pair spent
a week or so tossing "owl stuff
out of the nest and bringing in
new branches. When the nest
was rebuilt to their species speci-
fications, they laid their eggs, and
successfully raised a late-season
clutch of chicks.
There are many records of
conflicts between osprey and
great horned owls, including
other observations of nest shar-
ing. Great horned owls will also
attack and kill osprey, thus mak-
ing it prudent for the osprey to
move rather than contest their
territory.
At Kayak Amelia, in fact, there
is an osprey wing on display that
came from a carcass killed by a
great horned owl on the premis-
es.
There is good news for the
14th Street osprey, too. This year,
once again, they are proudly
tending their brood on the plat-
form. After watching the nest for
weeks. finally oilMay 22 I gutf ili-
i. 'ii"gliripse ofthe youngsters
two chicks for certain, maybe
more?
Now begins the real nature
show at the nest. Drive on by
yourself and maybe you, too, will
see the young osprey begin their
trips beyond the nest Don't get
out of your car, just park quietly
nearby with binoculars and see
what you can see.,
