County employee confessed theft


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
A longtime Nassau County
employee confessed to years of
embezzling money from the coun-
ty a week before she took her own
life April 29.
Julie Mixon, a finance supervi-
sor in the clerk of court's office,
told state investigators she used
some of the more than $1 million
she stole to gamble in Las Vegas,
Biloxi, Miss., and Tunica, Miss.
Whether the county may be
able to recover any of the embez-
zled funds through seizure of
Mixon's assets remains undeter-
mined. The county also could be

There remain questions about Department of Law Enforcement
why and how Mixon was able to investigator Dominick Pape said
steal that much money some- at a Thursday press conference.


EXCURSION


"We have no reason to think it was -
a gambling addiction."
"First time was a favor, kind of,
that someone had asked if there
was any way. I helped out people
when they were in, when they had
financial and medical problems,
and I will say that I profited from it
also," Mixon told an FDLE inves-
tigator in an interview that was
taped. She describes to the inves-
tigator how she stole the cash and
covered up. the transaction.
Mixon, a longtime Fernandina
Beach resident, lived an unpreten-
tious lifestyle that did not reveal
spending more than a million dol-
lars.
Clerk of Court John Crawford,


who fired Mixon after taking office
in January, blamed a lack of over-
sight and checks and balances in
the office for allowing the theft to
stay undiscovered so long.
"She held the key to the king-
dom by herself," he said.
The clerk's office has revamped
its internal accounting procedures
since discovery of the theft, and
the county's contract with its exter-
nal auditor will be reviewed.
Mixon, 56, had worked in the
clerk's office since 1981 when she
was fired in February. She was
- interviewed by FDLE agents on
April 22, when she confessed to

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners have deferred to Nassau
County the decision on the number
of new homes to be located on
Crane Island.
The action came Tuesday as
commissioners agreed to settle a
tfive-year-uld lawsuit that center ed
on a road to Crane 'Island for pos-
sible development.
In a 4-1 vote Tuesday, commis-
sioners approved a "stipulation of
dismissal" of the lawsuit filed
against the city in January 2000 by
owners of Crane Island. Vice

The suit was filed by Crane

to the island across city airport

Before voting to approve the
dismissal, commissioners Bill
Leeper and Joe Gerrity asked that
all references to density, or number
of dwelling units, be removed.
"The city should not be setting
any parameters in density at all,"
Leeper said. "If we're going to put

County enhances hurricane response

Last year's hurricanes battered
Florida throughout the late sum-
mer and early autumn. Luckily, the
county was spared the brunt of the
storms, but Nassau County
Emergency Management Director
Nancy Freeman said emergency
workers are not taking any chances
this year.
"We learned a lot from last
year's season," Freeman said.
"We're always working to enhance
our emergency procedures."
Freeman said she's hoping the
general public learned the lessons
of the 2004 hurricane season as
well.
"Last year's hurricane season
really helped inform people of the
risks involved in living in this area,"
she said. "Hopefully more people
are making preparations (for this
year's hurricane season)."


Shelter locations
Nassau County hurricane shelters are at the following locations:
* Yulee Middle School, 85439 Miner Road, Yulee
* Hilliard Middle-Senior High School, 1 Flashes Ave.. Hilliard
* West Nassau County High School, 1 Warrior Drive, Callahan
* Callahan Intermediate, 34586 Ball Park Road, Callahan
A shelter for those who have special medical or physical needs is
located at Hilliard Elementary School, 27568 Ohio St., Hilliard.
Annual registration is required for the Special Needs Evacuation
program. Nassau County residents with special needs can register
by downloading the registration form at www.nassaufl-em.com/
special_needs.htm, and following the instructions on the web site.
More information for all Nassau County residents is available at
www.nassaufl-em.com, or residents can contact the Nassau County
Emergency Operations Center with questions at (904) 548-4980.


Organizing volunteer efforts is
one of the cornerstones in this
year's emergency preparedness
plans. Freeman said a Volunteer
Resource Group, made up of rep-
resentatives of community-oriented
organizations, has been formed as


a way of streamlining the emer-
gency response plan in Nassau
County.
The group will serve as a net-
work of easily accessible volun-
teers that county officials can call
on in the event of an emergency.


"We did have

year, but we did-

Freeman said another group

assist in the event of a hurricane
this year.
"These are individuals in the
community who have voluntarily

for Dennis

A hurricane warning was
issued for the lower Florida Keys
and the rest of Florida was on
alert as Hurricane Dennis moved

Respond quickly to stroke symptoms


ALICE WALSH
- News-Leader


Strokes are the third-lead-
ing cause of death in the
United States. They are
also a major cause of dis-
ability, both physical and mental.
They occur when normal blood
flow to the brain is blocked with a
clot or fatty deposit in an artery,
and oxygen-rich blood cannot
flow to a portion of the brain.
This can cause death, or impair-'
ment, which can range from a
speech disability to memory
problems to paralysis on the right
side of the body. It is a miscon-
ception that strokes only occur in
the elderly.
In times oast. little was done

equitable standards for signs
within the city."
The panel, an ad hoc adviso-
ry board to the city commission,
will consist of seven volunteer
regular members, including one
member each from the Planning
Advisory Board, the Historic
District Council, the Downtown
Merchants Association, the
Chamber of Commerce and
three citizen members, at least
one of whom will be a business
owner in the city.
"It seems like a fair distribu-
tion," Mearns said. "And we'd'
certainly like to have people on
this panel and get started as soon
as possible." The panel will meet
regularly and for a 60-day period.
Interested citizens may submit
a letter of interest or resume to
the city clerk's office.
Fernandina Beach business
owners have appeared before the
city commission twice this month
to express their frustration at
being cited for violations of the
sign ordinance.
The citations carry monetary
fines (a maximum $250 per day
per violation) if violations remain
uncorrected. But merchants in
the city, inside and outside the
historic district, believe the
enforcement puts them at an
unfair disadvantage to business-
es in the county.
"Just an eighth of a mile down
the street," in the county's juris-
diction, "they have signs all up
and down the street and they're
allowed to keep their signs out,
and we don't feel like this is fair,"
said Maggie de Vries, owner of
Perfect Tan and Hammocks
located in the Eight Flags shop-
ping center.
"We would like to be able to
grow our businesses in the same
manner in which they are
allowed to grow theirs," she told
commissioners during the June 7
regular city commission meet-
ing. "We just want fairness in,
order to prosper like everyone
else."
The city recently hired a fill-
time code enforcement officer.
According to public records, the
office of code enforcement
opened 24 cases related to the
sign ordinance between May 9
and June 22.
"Yes, there has been a great
deal of enhanced code enforce-
ment in the city in the last couple
weeks," Mearns said. 'That's a
direct result of a meeting we had
here several months ago in
which people demanded enforce-
ment."
"He's ,enforcing the code
which is, what he's paid to do,"
Co0trnisiibnr Johi Crow said." '
Enforcement of the ordinance
"is past due," Mearns said in an
earlier telephone interview.
Although the code enforcement
officer is "acting appropriately,"
his actions have "caused some
distress," Mearns said.
"Signage is a very important
part of doing business," Jim
Tipton said. Tipton, an investor in
the Pelican Palms Center off
South Eighth Street and owner of
the Ice Cream Club there, was
cited for violating the sign ordi-
nance. He has been erroneously
fined in the past, he said.
"Without enticement, it is
very difficult" to draw customers
into an establishment," Tipton
said, asking the commission to
update the ordinance. "Visual pol-
lution" is "offensive," Tipton said.
But the sign ordinance "is defi-
nitely one-sided against retail and
in favor of non-revenue entities
within the city, such as garage
sales."
The city needs a non-evasive
sign ordinance that will give busi-
nesses "the freedom to stay in
business," Tipton said, rather
than allowing customers to cross
the Shave Bridge "to what is
quickly becoming 14 miles of
shopping."
"The entrepreneurial spirit is
at stake," said Debra Aaron,
owner of ZZ Toys on Centre
Street "If you make us just a ster-
ile environment, we're deciding
who wants to be the last man
standing."
Aaron, who asked the com-
mission to use its power to unify
merchants, asked, "How long
before, instead of a historic dis-
trict, we have a slum?"
The sign ordinance is "not
very business friendly,"
Commissioner Joe Gerrity said.
"I think we need to find some
way to help them (merchants)
out and support them the best
we can as a government entity."
The ordinance was last
amended in 1995 and addresses.


historic and non-historic parts of
the city, Mearns said, noting that
code enforcement officer Fred
Lindes has requested dual code
enforcement with the. county on
the island.
"We can't let these areas dry
up. It's that uniqueness that
brings people here," said
Commissioner Bill Leeper, who
owns a business on Centre Street
and on Eighth Street.
"I don't think any one wants to
put anyone out of business,"
Mearns said. "We do have this
balance between aesthetics and
business and I think that's what
this panel can solve."

Crane Island could be



tax bonanza for city


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
A proposed Crane Island resi-
dential development would have
minimal negative impact on local
governments, Vice Mayor Beano
Roberts said Tuesday.
Roberts called the economics pf
developing Crane Island "a no-brain-
er," explaining that its taxable value
is $222 million.
"There is not a residential proj-
ect in the history of Fernandina
Beach that brings more ad valorem
tax dollars to the city, county and
school system that requires less in
services than Crane Island," said
Roberts. "I defy anybody to find
one."
The Crane Island development's
impact on the school system "would
be minimal at best," Roberts said.
"I can't imagine there would be 10
kids in that whole development that
would even be in the schools here."
He was responding to critics,
including a News-Leader editorial
that opposed annexation of Crane
Island because of the cost of pro-
viding services.
"Some brain-dead character with
the News-Leader made a comment
that we shouldn't have Crane Island"
because of the drain it was going to
cause on services. Nothing could
be further from the truth,"


CRANE Continued from 1A
County and DCA (state Depart-
ment of Community Affairs)."
"We have nothing to say about
density," Gerrity said, calling it the
county's obligation. "That's a coun-
ty issue and we don't need to get
involved in that fight," he said.
'The city is not going to be at the
table," City Attorney Debra Braga
said. "(Nassau) County and DCA
will negotiate. Their comp plan has
to be amended."
Once that issue is decided, the
city :could decide to annex
Crane Island. The county has
urged the city to annex the island
-and set the parameters for devel-
opment.
Noting that the number of acres
within the CraneIsland develop-
nent has increased from 76 to 220
since 1988, according to public doc-
uments, citizens urged commis-
sioners to confirm how many acres
owners will build on. They als9
requested that the commission
require owners to a lide by the cits
tree ordinance before annexation
occurs and avoid "putting a stamp of
approval of increased density". on
Crane Island, which is zoned "con-
servation" by the county.
"The city and its citizens really
have not had the opportunity to
address this," said Dave Lott, speak-
ing on behalf of the Concerned
. Friends of Fernandina. "We just
think the citizens need to make

VICE MAYOR BEANO ROBERTS


Roberts said.
Roberts was the only commis-
sioner to object to the removal of all
references to density in a stipulation
document, approved by the city
commission Tuesday, that con-
cludes a lawsuit filed against the
city in 2000.
"You won't even know they're
there," he said. "There're some peo-
ple here who just don't want growth
... But I've got some numbers that
will choke a horse, as far as the
impact to this community, the coun-
ty and the school system."
Roberts estimated 169 Crane
Island homes, assuming an aver-
age value of $1.25 million each,
would bring in $1.3 million in
annual ad valorem taxes to the city.
A proposed 90-slip marina would
generate another $72,000 a year,


their feelings known with regard
to the density issue."
If the owners of the proposed
Crane Island development accept
the document, the city will dedicate
road right of way across airport
property for access to the island
after the owners obtain all the nec-
essary approvals, said attorney
Wesley Poole, who drew up the
stipulation.
Poole, a former city attorney, ini-
tially defended the city in the orig-
inal lawsuit.
Owners have received approval
from the U.S. Department of
Transportation and written assur-
ances that the road "would not
adversely impact" any of the city's
airport projects, or funding for those
projects current, past or future, as
existing or provided in the future
land use map, Poole said.
The owners still need approval
from Nassau County and the state
Department of Community Affairs.

AdministraLion remains unsub-

The city has received letters
from the FAA's Atlanta and Orlando

that no objections or penalties will
be assessed due to the road. The let-

roadway" on the grounds of an envi-
ronmental study, he said.

Snake bite victim 'good'


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

An 18-year-old Nassauville man
who was bitten by a rattlesnake
June 27 is once again listed in good
condition at Shands Jacksonville.
Brandon McClellan has been in
the hospital since the snake bit him.
He was in critical condition imme-
diately after he was admitted to the
hospital, but was upgraded to good
condition later that week and doc-
tors thought he might go home last
weekend. But McClellan relapsed
last weekend, going back into the
intensive care unit twice.
McClellan's mother, Pam
McClellan, said the decision earli-
er this week to try another
antivenin appears to be working.
"We're really not expecting
another occurrence," she said.
McClellan said her son may be
released Saturday.
McClellan said she and her fam-
ily have been treated very well at
the hospital.


"I really, really want to lift up
the people here at Shands," she
said. "They have been really won-
derful."

he said.
He suggested it would cost no
more than $200,000 a year to pro-
vide services to Crane Island
homeowners, a million-dollar-plus
advantage to the city.
"So I'll be conservative about
this and say we can easily take one-
half a mill off people's ad valorem
taxes as a result of Crane Island,"
Roberts said.
The county would benefit from
Crane Island more than the city, in
part because the development will
require "virtually no services" on
their part, he said.
Roberts calculated that Crane
Island would generate $1.7 million
in property taxes for the county,
"for which they'd have to do very
little."

vails," Mearns said, adding, "We
tended to agree with the letter from
Atlanta" because grant funding
comes to the city from Washington,
D.C, via the Atlanta office.
I "I don't think that's substantial
enough," Gerrity said. "I think
before we move forward that needs
to be clarified."
The 2000 lawsuit filed against
the city "sought to establish a statu-
tory way of necessity across airport
property to provide access to Crane
Island from the nearest public
road," Poole said.
'The city vigorously defended
the lawsuit for almost two years"
before both parties entered into a
"consent order abating the action"
in December 2001 to allow the own-
ers to obtain required government
approvals, he said. The order was
extended several times until it
expired in June 2004.
'Technically that consent order,
by its own terms has died," Poole
said. "But there, has been no fur-
ther action as far as the lawsuit is
concerned'."' ',. -n-

BENJAMIN PRICE/NEWS-LEADER
Clerk of Court John Crawford speaks with a reporter at a
Thursday press conference detailing embezzlement by long-
time county employee Julie Mixon.


COUNTY Continued from 1A
embezzling funds at the office
since 1996. (Her son, Josh Mixon,
was murdered in a widely publi-
cized incident in 1997.)
Seven days after the confes-
sion, she checked into the Best
Western Inn in Jacksonville, where
her body was discovered on May
1 with a gunshot wound to the
chest Her death was ruled a sui-
cide.
Pape, said FDLE did not
make an arrest immediately fol-
lowing Mixon's confession
because it wanted to verify her
claims.
"At that point it was basically a
one-sided story," he said. "We
wanted to look deeper."
No other current or former
clerk's employees are now sus-
pected of embezzling funds or
assisting Mixon.
Pape also said Mixon gave no
indication that she was suicidal
following the confession.
Pape said disposition of the
fdnds was "mostly unknown" but
if the pursuitof Mixon's assets
reveals any involvement by oth-
ers who were "knowingly hiding
or spending stolen assets," FDLE
will consider opening another
investigation.
But he said how the money
was.spent may never be known.
"You may never get the answer
of where the money's gone," he
said. "We may never know."
The FDLE reviewed docu-
ments spanning October 1999 to
February 2005, due to a five-year
statute of limitations. That inves-
tigation revealed about $875,000 in
missing funds.
However, Crawford said an
ongoing and separate investiga-
tion by the outside auditing firm
Berman, Hopkins, Wright &
LaHam CPAs LLP has found more
than $1 million in missing funds.
-.So.tar, that investigation goes back
to 1998, but Crawford said it will


continue to 1996 and earlier and
may include other accounts not
yet investigated.
Pape said FDLE's investigation
revealed "an embezzlement
scheme" involving cash deposits
Mixon handled which she was to
transfer to a courier.
"At that point money was
removed," Pape said. "It was basi-
cally cash."
He said most of the stolen
money was for traffic tickets and
citations.
State agents established that
revenue for the clerk's office was
counted and recounted several
times but that the final deposit slip
was reviewed by Mixon, who
sealed the bag containing the
receipts.
Annual audits by the county's
outside auditor, Farmand,
Farmand & Farmand, did not
uncover the theft.
Crawford said shortly after he
took office in January a certified
public accountant was put into the
position formerly held by Mixon.
The CPA discovered "financial
irregularities" which quickly rose
into the thousands of dollars, and
the office contacted law enforce-
ment.
Crawford fired Mixon about a
month before the FDLE agents
began a "preliminary investiga-
tion."
Crawford said he did not con-
front Mixon about his suspicions,
but Mixon told the investigator
she felt "panic" at that time.
"(I) knew eventually it would
be caught up with. But I was hop-
ing that it wouldn't be," she said.
"And things would get on the
straight and narrow."
Crawford confirmed the coun-
ty is still using Farmand, Farmand
& Farmand, and changing that
will be up to the Nassau County
Commission.
"But I can tell you w'll be look-
ing at that." hesaid. I

from Yulee to a fatal crash site on US 1 in Hilliard Tuesday. Gatlin believes having them on

Fatal wreck prompts man


to buy air bags for county


LILSPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent
A person at the scene of a fatal
crash on US 1 in Hilliard Tuesday
said he plans to buy a set of air
bags for Nassau County Fire-
Rescue Station 40 in Hilliard and
hopes other residents will consid-
er doing likewise for other stations
around Nassau County. ,
Lucky Gatlin, who owns a truck-
ing company at Gatlin Farms on
the Old Dixie Highway between
Hilliard and Callahan, said he was
the second person on the scene of.
the crash between a lumber truck
and pickup truck.
Gatlin said when he got to the
overturned lumber truck, the driv-
er was still alive.
"There was still a heartbeat,"
he said.
But after rescue personnel tried
withe*-~w .eegess to extricate the
driv\'er-usmi-tieJaws of Life," a call
was put out for a set of air bags.
which had to be brought by Nassau
County Fire-Rescue 30 in Yulee.
When they arrived, John Denning,
52, of Nicholls, Ga., had just died.
Gatlin said he was holding
Denning's hand when he died.
Obviously shaken, Gatlin said
it could have been him or one of his


drivers and, if so. he would want to
know that firefighters had all the
equipment they needed for the
"attempt to save his life.
Gatlin said he realizes there was
no guarantee that having the air
bags on site earlier would have kept
Denning alive. But he believes it
might have made the difference
between life and death in this
instance.
Nassau County Fire-Rescue
Chief Chuck Cooper, who was at
the accident scene, said the depart-
ment requires air bags on average
once a year and that the county
has two sets. The set for the West
Side is in Yulee because of its cen-
tral location. The other set is on
the East Side, he said.
"The air bags probably would
not have made a difference what-
soever, but that was the last tool of
resort other than using a wreck-
er," said CopeptHe Nassau .
County C'o e done'!

"Air bags are usually used for

and the rams and cribbing are not
effective. They are so thin, but have
a great deal of strength, lots of ten-
sile strength," he said.

"They allow just enough room
for cribbing to go underneath it
and another air bag on top of that
cribbing. And you keep working it
up until you get enough room to
work it," he said.
Cooper said some people
"swear by them" and others con-
sider them the last tool of choice. "If
-used right, it's a very safe, method-
ical, but systematic method of extri-
cation; nothing fast happens when
using the air bags," he said.
Apparently air bags aren't the
only items fire and rescue person-
nel could use.
About the time of the Hilliard
crash, Cooper said an accident
occurred on 14th Street in
Fernandina Beach, requiring three
rescue units because the city unit
was tied up on another call. At that
poin- there was one rescue unit
available countywide, and it was in
Bryceville, said Cooper.
"It's happening more and more
every week," he said. Cooper said
he even put a call in for Century
Ambulance and asked them to put
one of their private ambulances on
standby.
Tuesday night, Gatlin said the
air bags had been ordered for
Nassau County Fire-Rescue 40 in
Hilliard at a personal cost to him of
about $3,000. He said a life saved is
certainly worth more than that
"You wouldn't send a mechanic
out to do a job without his tools,"
Gatlin said.

Police Chief "Chip" Hammond
said Thursday the incident is
under investigation and police are
"pursuing all leads."
No arrests had been made at
press time.
Hammond said police have
identified some suspects but
declined to say how many, only
that there are more than one. He
said the incident appeared to be
related to an ongoing fight
between various people believed
to be involved.
"All these parties have a his-
tory "of some type of feud,"
Hammond said, referring to the
suspects and the intended victims.
Hammond said there were
"more than four" people in the
yard at the time of the shootings,
but he did not comment on exact-
ly how many.

Fireworks, fun run, music and more at Hilliard's Fourth


LIL SPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent
Hilliard Action Committee
members were pleasantly surprised
Monday with the great turnout at
the Annual Hilliard Fourth of July
Celebration.
While they didn't think there
were any more people than in past
years, everyone agreed the crowds
were bigger during the daytime
hours.
Between 8,000 and 10,000 peo-
ple have been enjoying the annual
celebration.
Hilliard Mayor David
Buchanan, who co-chairs the com-
mittee with his wife Ann, said con-
sidering the heat, humidity and
many rain showers, he thought
everything turned out well since
about the same number arrived for
the fireworks as usual.
"I think it's bigger and better
than last year," Buchanan said,
about an hour before the fireworks
display, which was delayed due to
rain.
Past celebrations have been
slow getting started, building up
gradually to the fireworks.
This year, the Hilliard Airpark
was buzzing with activity before
the event officially started with the
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post
10095 flag raising, pledge to the
flag and national anthem.
The United States Autosound
Competition International appeared
to be largely responsible for that, in
addition to The Hilliard Family
YMCA-sponsored Fun Run and'
Walk event, which was held at 8
a.m.
The 24 booths on the grounds
were busy most of the time, elimi-
nating long lines throughout the
day, and those who were already
hot or tired were content to sit
beneath the protective tarp to see
the many entertainers who took
turns performing.
New Horizons Bluegrass band
members BIlly Brant, Lucille Brant,
Terry Dillhyon and Richard Wilkes
performed several bluegrass and
gospel arrangements, which they
genuinely appeared to enjoy doing
as much as their audience enjoyed
watching and hearing.
Adam Henderson, who has
always been at the annual celebra-
tions to provide sound equipment
for other entertainers, appeared 'as
an entertainer himself this year.
He was joined by three other band
members and together, "Beyond
Usual" sang and played their instru-
ments for several numbers.
OLhers t hu per frmnd prior to
t firewbri were' Ni-os
Westmoreland, Sarah Sullivan and
the Hilliard Drum Corps.
The Hilliard Family YMCA
sponsored its first Hilliard Family
YMCA Fun Run and Walk Monday
morning, with registration starting
at 8 a.m. Participants were given
free T-shirts and warmed up prior
to starting out on the course.
Event organizer Ann Myhre
said proceeds from the entry fees
Would go to "The Really Caring"
campaign, which provides finan-
cial assistance for kids and fami-
lies who want to enroll in YMCA
programs.

FRIDAY, JULY 8.2005/News-Leader


OPINION


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Nospanking
I write to take strong issue with
the views about spanking children
expressed by Dennis Todd
("Should we spank our children,"
June 22).
I am a board-certified pediatri-
cian and the father of six children.
I have served as pediatrician on a
child abuse team in Colorado and
have volunteered with the citizen
review program (case reviews of
children in foster care) in Manatee
County. Too often, I have seen the
horrible results caused by parents
who had spanked their children so
severely that it constituted abuse.
No matter how you view the
matter, spanking is a form of vio-
lence. Spanking demonstrates to
the child that violence in the name
of discipline is acceptable and may
well be expected again in the
future. There is no good way to dis-
tinguish between: abusive spank-
ing and "mild-moderate" spanking.
If parents are' sufficiently angry at
-a child's behavior, they may
unknowingly turn an act of disci-
pline:into a form of vengeance. The
arch of the child's body being
spanked has great impact on the
child. Spanking the buttocks (a
potentially erogenous area) may
be misinterpreted as a sexual act by
the child.
'My concern for children who
have been spanked is their poten-
tial for developing psychological
damage, based on fear of their par-
ents andthe shame of having been
spanked.This may show up in later
years as:impaired self-image and a
tendency toward exhibiting aggres-
sive behaviors. Having been
spanked as children, they in turn,
may well spank their children.
Participation as adults in sexual
spanking rituals maybe a result of'
having been spanked on the but-
tocks in childhood.
Mr. Todd cites a report from
the Family 'Research Council, an
offshoot organization from James
Dobson's Focus on the Family. Its


advocacy activities as a conserva-
tive Christian think-tank include
opposition to family planning pro-
grams and opposition to equal
rights for homosexual partners.
However, in reviewing the policy
areas of the Family Research
Council, I found no mention of
spanking or discipline of children.
My review of the New Testament in,
the Christian Bible provided the
image of Jesus' compassionate wel-
coming of children (Luke 18: 15-
17). The author of the letter to the
Ephesians supplied a brief instruc-
tion about discipline: "... fathers, do
not provoke your children to anger,
but bring them up in the discipline
and instruction of the Lord."
(Ephesians 6:4).
The best way to break the cycle
of violence is to advocate for no
spanking of any degree of severity.
That has successfully been
affirmed legally in several
European countries. Rather than
spanking, the approach of "tough
love" provides a compassionate and
non-violent, yet consistent, way to'
discipline and instruct children.
Thomas C. Washburn, M.D.
Fernandina Beach'

Annex Crane Island
As one who wouldn't have
minded being rich but holds no
grudge against those who honest-
ly became so, I thought that was a
great letter by Bob Rogers,
("Socialist mentality." June 29). To
refresh memories. Bob was taking
exception to the socialist slant of a!
June 3 editorial objecting to cater-
ing to million-dollar yachts using
our marina and to rich homeown-
ers building on Crane Island.' *.
Regarding our marina, since 6ur
port facilities are on the Intracoastal
Waterway and have easy access to
the sea, making Fernandina an.
attractive port of call for yachts, '
including the million-d6lla fones
should have a high priority in the
city's programs. In addition to these
yachts adding class to our water-


front, those aboard would spend
money in town.
One thing Rogers and I and the
editorial all agree on is that the city
marina should restore the public
boat ramp. The more boating activ-
ity at the marina the better. Better
bustling than inactive.
As for Crane Island, I concur
with Rogers that it should be
annexed to the city. If we must
allow it ,to be developed, the fewer
houses there the better ecologi-
cally, even if it means the dwellers,
thereon are wealthier. The wealth-
ier they are, probably the better
care they will take of the island.
Going on about.few is better,
when docent-ing in the Amelia
Island Museum of History and wax-
ing cynical, I tell my tours, "Amelia
Island is about the same size as
Manhattan but with several million
fewer people. The Chamber of
Commerce, however, is doing their
best to rectify this shortcoming." A
,"bumper sticker I have contemplat-
ed ordering would say "Welcome to
Amelia Island/Now go home," but
then I too came to this beautiful
island from elsewhere only 26 years
ago.

Fernandina Beach

Good homes for pets
The letter ("Out of animal con-
trol," June 24) has done more to,
define the difference between ani-
mal control and, the Humane
Society than any thing I have seen
in print on the. subject recently.
There is an animal control struc-
tutre that covers all of Nassau
County except Fernandina Beach
and is run by the Nassau County
government. There is an animal
control 'structure that covers
Fernandina Beach and that one is
contracted to the Nassau Humane
Society for its daily operations.
The difference is that Nassau
Humane Society works to keep the
:healthy animals alive and actively
seeks ways to get them adopted


OW -v

=*o
'fib laww's^^^

l MSyndicated Content iwj

into good homes. The Nassau
Humane Society is a non-profit that
exists because of volunteers who
provide fund-raisers, dog walking,
cat grooming and takes animals to
adoption days.
There was a picture of me in
theNews-Leader (June 22) holding
'a kitten with the caption of
"Underdogs" above the picture.
What happened at the Nassau ani-
mal control this week is a primary:
example of the point I tried to
make. On a typical adoption day, I
might travel 160 miles back and
forth to move cats to adoption sites,
mostly PetSmart stores, spend six
hours talking to potential owners
and consider it a good day if one or
two cats get a new home and make
a family happy.
I am assuming that the letter
writer is a teen who fell in love with
a cat and wanted to adopt it She
seemed to have a good grasp of
the reality of the situation. One
female cat left to reproduce off-
spring that is in turn left to repro-
duce offspring will result in 420,000
cats being born over seven years.
But she wanted this one cat and
the cat was put down anyway., book
at what I have to do as a volunteer
with all expenses coming out of my
pocket, and I question why that
one cat could not have spared. After
all, I am given to understand that
the county has a full-time person
on-board to coordinate animal adop-
tions. Where was this person in the
chain-of-command when that order,
was executed?
In summary, everyone needs
to understand that animal control is
just that. No one calls a commis-
sioner about a cat that was eutha-
nized but they do call and complain
if stray cats and dogs are not con-
trolled. It is the Humane Society
and other volunteer organizations


like Cats Angels and STARS that
have admission to help find healthy
cats and dogs good homes and to
take good care of them in the inter-
im. You can help by volunteering to
foster an animal, adopting an ani-
mal as opposed to buying an animal
that was produced for profit, donat-'
ing your time and/or money to help
with the medical and maintenance
expenses and doing your part by
having your cats and dogs
spayed/neutered.

littletown gone big
I am a former resident of
Fernandina Beach. I graduated
from Fernandina Beach High
School in 1970. I started receiving
the News-Leader in March of this
year, for two reasons. One, I had
been so out of touch with the town
and I wanted to see what was going
on. Second, I was considering, one
day, moving back "home." Well, I
can tell you, "home" is not "home"
anymore.
I have not been back since 1999
aqd am planning atrip tif"hbort-*'
,y. I can say thatlI aif.'Vryrttsiz
pleased with the things that are"
going on there. The "gas tax," get-
ting rid of the "boat ramp," whew,
that was saved! The price of real
estate there and the plain taking
over of big businesses has left me
wondering, if my ancestors could'
see their little town now, what
would they think?
My grandmothers were both
born there, one in 1896 and the
other in 1902. 1 come from the
Verdier line, McCleary line and the
Delaney line. I am related to the
Langs, Moyes. Nobles and who
knows whom else. I cannot under-
stand how Fernandina has allowed


people to come in and corrupt the
government the way that I see it
has become. I am not saying that
there was not corruption "back in
the day," but to this magnitude?
What? How can the commission-
ers steal and then want the people
to pay for "their" mistakes. (If that
is the right word.) They build them-
selves a bigger meeting place and
think that no one is smart enough
to figure things out Everyone there
is not asleep or on drugs! You have
people who are awake! I hope you
agree.
I live in Mableton, Ga, which is
outside of Atlanta. Cobb County is
a wonderful county. There is an
exception though. They allow clear-
cutting to the max! I used to brag
about how my "little town of
Fernandina Beach" preserved the
landscape of the city and county.
How there were laws to protect our
cypress tress and other landmarks.
Now, I see, money is taking over
and people are turning their heads
and letting businesses get by with
criminal acts.
Hopefully, the majority of the
people will wake up and do some-
Wthing'to'preservie' the town of
r'Febndndina Beach and. Nassau,
County. My father used to call it
'"fantasy land" because there was no
place like it on Earth. Now, it's try-
ing to become like the rest of the
country, commercialized. God help
us! These people who have no real
roots there don't have much affec-
tion for the land. Being part Irish
and Scottish. land means a lot to
me. Beautiful land, untouched by
man.
Well. I hope you understand my
heart when it comes to "the little
town gone big."! wish I were there
to fight for Fernandina Beach.

Giantcatfish


just story


for suckers?

All my life I'd heard stories about giant catfish.
It was the local.obsession.
I knew men who sought giant catfish the way
other men seek fortunes, fame or contact with the
divine.
On Saturday mornings, well before the sun
would brighten the tips of the pine trees, they
would load a Zebko rod, tackle box and six-pack
of Hi-Life onto their pickup trucks and head to
their respective "glory holes."
Always alone. Always to a secret location.
Always hopeful that some big niudcatea -i,0.ejagg1 o_
er thmrthev or anyone else.had ever sg.n-aVtWE T
ed them in a hole or channel;
lurking beneath the surface,
invisible, giant, a virtual
leviathan.
These big cats were more
than trophies. They could
S: define a man. Make him the
talk of the downtown barber-
shop. Get his picture pub-
lished in the newspaper,
p B along with a one-inch story
to record his struggle with
Benjamin the 30-pound beast for pos-
Price terity.
---**-- I have seen these newspa-
W per clippings placed at the
NEWSROOM side of men's coffins, laminat-
VIEWS, ed and framed alongside por-
traits of his family.
By late afternoon, the lucky ones would return
home with their catch and were often seen in the
front yard nailing fish heads to trees. They'd use
a pair of pliers to peel back the skin then throw
the refuse into a bucket But the heads would stay
nailed there for days. A macabre sort of trophy.
Giant catfish were the stuff of legend. And no
legend was bigger than the family of giant cats
that lurked beneath the deep waters of Lake
Burton.
Some time in the early 1980s, a poultry truck
loaded down with live broilers was traveling the
lake's curvy mountain roads when it left the road-
way and plummeted into the deep waters next to
the Lake Burton dam.
For weeks, a family of catfish fed on hundreds
of these fat broilers stuffed with steroids and
growth hormones until they became super-fed,
giant Siluriformes.
I must have heard that story 100 times grow-
ing up, but the description was always recited
exactly the same:
"Catfish the size of Volkswagen Beetles."
Now I'll admit that on one or two occasions I
might have felt a tremble of fear when a limb or a
fish brushed against my foot while I was swim-
ming in Lake Burton.
But, honestly, I never believed that story.
Until I read the newspaper yesterday.
Thousands of miles from the depths of Lake
Burton, the Associated Press has reported Thai
fishermen landed a record catfish last week in the
Mekong Delta.
The story included a picture of the "Mekong
giant," all 650-pounds of him stretched out on a
tarp.
He's as big as a Volkswagen Beetle.
I don't know if I now have second thoughts

n the last few years Nassau County has rarely
been without controversial issues to keep the
pundits busy spinning tales of intrigue and
speculation. Within the last two weeks I have
received several calls and e-mails regarding an
organization that I would have thought (in fact
hoped) would have been free of controversy: The
Boys & Girls Club of Nassau County.
Questions are being raised as to how 10 acres of
county parkland that had been donated to the Boys
& Girls Club by the county commission for the pur-
pose of building a clubhouse are now being sold to a
prominent developer who happens to own the
adjoining property. hi an effort to sort out (and fig-
ure out) the various pieces to this puzzle, I met with
several members of the Boys & Girls Club board, as
well as the developers in question.
To be blunt, this is a complex and convoluted
story involving several participants including: well-
intentioned community leaders who have devoted
much of their own time, sweat and money for an
extremely worthwhile cause; elected officials who
appear to be supporting the same admirable cause;
a private developer who also appears to have assist-
ed the cause; and our own county government
which (in its own inimitable manner) is probably at
the root of the simmering controversy. After you
read the following brief history of the issue, you can
decide whether or not you believe any of these play-
ers acted inappropriately. (Remember, this is com-
plicated.)
July 2002: The county commission gave the Boys
& Girls Club a 99-year lease (at $1/year) on 10
acres of undeveloped parkland (that had been
donated to the county by Rayonier) near the inter-
section of Hatton Road and the proposed Amelia
Concourse (west of Nassauville Road and south of
A1A). Based on this gift, the Boys & Girls Club
hired a contractor and raised.funds to build the
clubhouse, which was designed to serve hundreds
of youths from the surrounding areas.
Unfortunately, when it came time to actually
start construction, the clubwas told that the proper-
ty donated by the county in the parkland was "land-
locked," and there was no way for builders to actual-
ly gain access to it to begin construction. The
county had led the club to believe that it could use
Hatton Road (an unimproved dirt road) to access
the site, buttnearby landowners contested the own-
ership of the road and denied:use of it by the club.
(When the Amelia Concourse.is finally finished,
access will be provided to the park area, but no one
knows when that will happenm),County Attorney
Mike Mullin has advised-me that it was his office
which told the Boys & Girls Club that the private
property owners appeali to have a title claim to
Hatton.Road," thus making:it unavailable for use in
building the new clubhouse.
Caught between the proverbial rock and a hard


place, the club started looking
for a new location to build the
clubhouse since construction
costs were increasing dramati-
cally, and local benefactors
were wondering why their
donations weren't being used.
^ Bruce Jasinsky, a local realtor,
developer and Boys & Girls
Club benefactor, found 13 acres
for the club farther north on
Mike Boyle Nassauville Road, which was
available for $360,000. This land
already had water and sewer
WAIT A facilities, and the club pur-
MINUTE chased it in August 2004.
Shortly thereafter, the club
asked the county commission to donate the original
10-acre site to it so that it could sell it and recoup
the money it was forced to expend on the new club-
house location. The county agreed, but required any
sale income over $400,000 to go back to the county.
At this point former county commissioner Vickie
Samus suggested that the Boys & Girls Club should
swap its original 10-acre site for a comparable site
.(also in the proposed parkland) that would actually
be more marketable, since the club's goal was to
sell the land to replenish their endowment. In a
recent interview Samus told me that.she also
believed the remaining county land (after the swap)
would be more usable for the planned park. The
swap was approved by the county commission in
November 2004.
One result of the swap was to place the new 10-
acre site adjacent to one of the planned Amelia
Concourse developments owned by Bruce Jasinsky.
An independent appraiser placed the value of the
Boys & Girls Club property at $285,000, and '
Jasinsky offered to buy it for $325,000. The board,
wanting to recoup the entire purchase price of the
new clubhouse property, countered with'$360,000,
and Jasinsky accepted. The sale is pending approval
by the county commission for zoning changes and
reduced impact fees for the parkland parcel.
Of course the question that begs to be answered
is, "Who else was asked to bid on the property in an
effort to maximize the purchase price for the Boys
& Girls Club?" And the answer is, "No one."
When confronted with this critical question dur-
ing our recent meeting, the board members were,
extremely candid in their responses. Time was
working against them, their financial reserves had
been depleted with the purchase of the new site and
the original parcel they were trying to sell was still
landlocked (i.e., there wouldbe few prospective
buyers). They believed then (and still do) that
Jasinsky's offer was more than fair (in view of the
appraisal), that no one else would be interested in
the remote parcel and that everyone. (especially the

Yup, Reagan; Not George Washington,.
not Abraham Lincoln, not Benjamin Franklin or
Thomas Jefferson or Martin Luther King.
Iam appalled! Not because I was never a fan of
Reagan, but because apparently, in this new age of
"TV and.computers, people can only think back to
recent memories, and have either forgotten their
history lessons, or never learned them at all.
But lets start with dispelling the Reagan myth,
which seems to have numbed the modern mind.
Reagan is somehow credited for single-handedly
causing the fall of the Soviet Union. Well, for the
lazy non-historians, that may all fit so' cozily into
their reasoning, but there were a few others who
contributed along the way. Harry S. Truman toed
the line against the Communists in Korea (certainly
a strong signal to the Soviets), John F Kennedy
stared down Khrushchev during the Cuban Missile
Crisis, Richard M. Nixon opened the diplomatic
door with China and made the Soviets look over
both shoulders -and Pope John Paul II (albeit not an
American) was no small player in the demise of the
Soviet Union.
Additionally, superior American technology,

How is it that 10 acres donated to the
Boys & Girls Club by the county are
now being sold to a developer?

county's youth) would benefit from the sale.
So who's to blame for this situation, or, for that
matter, is there any blame to assess?
It seems clear that the board members of the
Boys & Girls Club have acted in good faith, and
have persevered when confronted with significant
challenges, obstacles and frustration. Their commit-
ment to build a new clubhouse for the youth of our
community is both admirable and impressive. In
addition, based on the available information to date,
the developer (Jasinsky) who stands to gain a valu-
able piece of county parkland (without other bid-
ders) can make a strong case that he is simply try-
ing to bail the club out of a financial bind.
However, the county's role in all of this is, as
usual, less favorable. For example, how could the
county not know who controlled a critical road that
was supposed to provide access to the original 10-
acre site? When Rayonier donated that land to the
county for use as a park, there was a stipulation that
the county build an access road into the property
within two years and that the donated land would
always be designated for public use. Whoever
approved that contract for the county should have
known if there was (qr wasn't) a way to build the
required road, and if there wasn't, why was the con-
tract accepted? One wonders how many other "mys-
tery roads" are lurking out there.
In speaking with the county attorney, he
informed me that he based his decision (that the
county didn't own Hatton Road) heavily on the state-
ment of BJ. Taylor, a long-time county road employ-
ee, who told him the county had not maintained the
road. But it doesn't appear that anyone ever con-
ducted a review of road department "work orders"
to definitively prove (or disprove) whether or not
the county had been maintaining Hatton Road for
years.
At the recent meeting where I went searching for
answers, several of the participants expressed disT
may and resentment that anyone would suggest 1
there was anything questionable about any of the -
dealings related to the new clubhouse for the Boys
& Girls Club. I reminded them that this was Nassau
County, which has a long and rich history of politi-
cal skulduggery. When you live here, being skepti-
cal and paranoid may not be signs of mental illness.
They may be necessary for survival.

ave terrible sense of history


ingenuity and resolve beat
down the Soviet military
"'" machine, which tried to match
the U.S., by spending them-
selves into ruin all the while
building inferior weapons and
R *machines.
No, Ronald Reagan did not
bring down the "Evil Empire,"
he was a man who was in the
right place at the right time.
Coleman The Soviet Union came tum-
bling down, not because he told
Langshaw Gorbachev to "tear down that
wall," but because many
Americans had fought many
OPINIONS years to bring down the symbol-
FROM[ THE ic and physical wall in Berlin.
GOLDFISH So who is the greatest
American? Personally I would
opt for Washington or Lincoln, and between the two;
I have to vote for ole Abe.
Washington certainly helped to create our great
nation, but Lincoln saved the United States of
America, and that was more because of his single
resolve against many foes from within.
The "War of Northern Aggression" was also the


war of treasonous rebellion (if you were a supporter
of the United States in 1860-65). If it weren't for
Lincoln's resolve, George W..Bush today, would
probably be president of the Confederate States of
America, and those of us living in the South would
need a passport to enter the United States of
America.
Now there's something to ponder the next time
you see a Confederate flag waving next to United
States flag (sorry apologists, it is what it is!).
But back to the subject at hand, regardless of my
sentiment about Reagan or Lincoln or the
Confederate flag, the real point of all of this is the
average American's terrible sense of history. Many
people don't want to be bothered by the details, they
would rather revere a modern-day icon because life
seems to be only about the here and now. Great
men (and women) of one or two centuries ago could
never be as great as someone we hear about all of
the time in this age.
And so, like the Confederate flag, which has
transformed from a symbol of hate towards the
United States to one of "heritage," history is no
longer the story of our past, it's a sound byte from
recent memory.

Volunteers are turtles' guardian angels


Dickie Anderson

FROM THE
PORCH


I have a proprietary interest in
turtle nest number 11. Early on a
steamy summer morning, I joined a
friend, Sandra Baker-Hinton, on an
early morning adventure. Baker-
Hinton is a volunteer monitoring the
activity of the loggerhead turtles
who lay their eggs on the beaches
around the fort.
Yes, it required an earlier than
usual wake-up call, but the reward
was worth it. Coffee cup in hand, I
joined Baker-Hinton and we made
.our way to the fort. I was impressed
from the time we went in the back
door (gate) of the park and signed
in at the ranger station. We found


the "Gator," our vehicle for the day,"
and climbed in. Imagine a military
version of a golf cart Except for the
noisy vehicle, the park was quiet in
the early morning as we drove
through the heavy canopy of oaks,
past the dowager fort and on to the
beach.
The morning sky put on quite a
show dark ominous clouds and
on the horizon rays of light falling
on to the still water of the ocean.
One almost expected an angel to
descend from the dramatic back-
drop. Maybe in our way we were the
angels turtle angels.
As we came on to the beach, my

FRIDAY, JULY 8,2005/News-Leader


RELIGION


Finding the real center point of the world


T he ancient saying "All
roads lead to Rome,"
can be traced back to
what is today a mere cir-
cular foundation just outside the
remains of the Senate in the
Roman Forum. This circular foun-
dation was the base of what was
known as the Miliarium Aureum,
a column erected in 20 BC by
Caesar Augustus. On this column,
bronze plates recorded the dis-
tances to all major Roman cities -
first in Italy and then to include
every part of the world which
Rome conquered. The Roman
people referred to this column as
the "Belly Button of the World." It
was to them the very center of the


known world.
Given that
the Roman
Empire built
roads and
conquered
peoples and
nations over
three conti-
nents, this
Conrad monument's
Sharps status as the
-w..or center of the
world
PULPIT became, at
NOTES least in appli-
cation, true
in that most strategic locations in
the world were identified (in part)


by their measured distance from
this "belly button," this center
point in Rome.
I am intrigued by the theologi-
cal significance of this monument
It compels me to ask, "What is the
center point of my world?" The
geopolitical center may well be
Washington, D.C., and the finan-
cial center Wall Street, N.Y. But
what is the most important spiri-
tual center of my world? Well, I
can assure you it's not Louisville,
Ky., where my denomination
headquarters reside. Nor is it the
Church of the Nativity in
Bethlehem, the Church of the
Holy Sepulchre or the Garden
Tomb, both just outside the walls


of "ancient" Jerusalem. Although
these sights have been highlights
of my spiritual journey, they are
. not my "center." For that, I draw
from the apostle John who wrote
the church of Asia from his exile
on the Island of Patmos: "I am the
Alpha and the Omega,'says the
Lord God, 'who is, and who was,
and who is to come, the Almighty."
(Revelation 1:8)
Of course, Alpha and Omega
are merely the first and last letters
of the Greek alphabet they sym-
bolically represent the beginning
and the end of human expression
of God who is the creator, the
redeemer and the sustainer of life.
All of existence, wisdom and time


are his creation; and nothing that
is, has expression but by his
choice. God then is the center, the
initiator and the force behind
what is the beginning and the
ending of all things. I can only
measure life by my position, my
distance or closeness, to him. To
locate the center of the world, the
very beginning of life that is real,
one must seek the presence of
God.
I believe Jesus taught this
divine truth in response to the
expert in the law who tried to trap
him with the question, "What is
the greatest commandment in the
Law?" Jesus responded, "Love the
Lord your God with all your heart


and with all your soul and with all
your mind.' This is the first and
greatest commandment. And the
second is like it: Zove your neigh-
bor as yourself."
(Matthew 22:37-39)
If the shortest distance be-
tween two points is a straight line,
then Jesus certainly has given us
direction to the center of all that
is, and is yet to be the very pres-
ence of God. The center of life is
only to be found by loving God
every moment, every day; and in
every way seeking to honor him
by loving my neighbor as myself.
The Rev. Conrad C. Sharps is
pastor of First Presbyterian Church
in Fernandina Beach.

QWhat is this insect and
.what kind of insecticide
can I use to kill it? JJ

A .This is a beautiful example
of the velvet ant or cow
killer, which in reality is neither
an ant nor a cow killer. Actually,
the velvet ant belongs to the
wasp family. The name "cow
killer" comes from the tremen-

TalI By the way,
only female
velvet ants have the capacity to
sting. Velvet ants are solitary
creatures, unlike their cousins
the bees. Adults feed on nectar
but the larvae's main food is bur-
rowing beetle and bee larvae.
Velvet ants are not aggressive
,but the female will sting if she is
provoked. Velvet ants do not
cause plant or property damage
and should be left alone.

insecticide normally used on
wasps or yellow jackets. Thanks
for bringing this lovely wasp into
the office. I look forward to
using it when I teach my insect
programs to local youths. Few
youths or adults have seen this
creature and I like to use every-
opportunity I can to instruct peo-
ple on local fauna.

Q Last evening. I had a beau-
.tiful penta plant and this
morning it was 75 percent
stripped. Close examination
identified two caterpillars which
are about 3 inches long, a 1/2
inch in diameter, primary upper
(top) body color earthy-brown-
green (dark) %with highlights
consisting of a row of regular
designs on the sides in a yellow-
ish green that resemble slash
marks. This critter has two eyes
that look like tiny vitamin A or E
gel capsules, clear, yellowish,
about double the size of the head
of the common pin. I have
attached a photographed of
them. What do you think and
how do I get rid of them? SG

A.I am not sure about the spe-
.Lcific species but I believe
these larvae belong to the group
of sphinx moths. These moths
are comprised of a large and


diverse group of heavy bodied,
sometimes colorful moths.
Familiar examples are the.five-
spotted hawk moth (the tomato
hornworm) and the Carolina
sphinx (the tobacco hornworm).
Over 124 North American
species are knqwn. The adult
moths have wingspans of 1-6
inches long that beat so quickly
they resemble hummingbirds or
large bees. The adult moths visit
flowers for nectar but the large,
larvae can cause damage to veg-
etables and ornamentals. The
larvae are stout, usually hairless,
bright green to dull red or
brown. In the United States, we
-call-tiese creatures sphinx- -- -
moths but in Europe and Canada
they are referred to as hawk
moths. It is going to be tough to
control this larva since it is so


large but you can try an insecti-
cide specifically formulated for
moth larvae or you could hand
pick them off and throw them
away.

Q. Our local community gar-
den in Hilliard has pro-
duced a zucchini that is over 3
pounds. Can you tell me the
largest local zucchini recorded?
JH

A What a fun question. This
:. is just the kind of question
that makes the Internet worth-
while. I checked the University
of Florida Vegetarian Newsletter
dated April 2005. According to
this publication the record win-
ning zucchini was a Park's black
zucchini weighing 14 pounds 10
ounces by a grower in Nassau
County named Lynch. This
record was set in 1999. A hybrid
zucchini weighed in at 16 pounds
6 ounces by a Marion county
grower in 2001. Now you have
your work cut out for you. I
would encourage all of you to
plan on a fall garden and then
you can bring in your beautiful
harvest to the Northeast Florida
County Fair in October where it
could possibly win a blue ribbon.
I would love to see the communi-
ty come together and show the
rewards of their labor. Just this
year the records for largest
sweet potato and turnip were
broken. Although retired, Jim
Stephens still keeps up with
Florida's biggest vegetables as
one of his emeritus professor
duties. The system he employs
still requires the assistance of
extension agents in each county
following guidelines established
in 1989. Prior to that year, no one
kept records of big vegetables
grown in Florida. Palm Beach
County holds the most Florida
records with 12 out of the 53 4
kept. The runner-up is Suwannee
County with eight records. If you

FRIDAY, JULY 8.2005 NEWS News-Leader


PORCH Continued from 8A
official record book. In roughly
60 days the sand will begin to
shift (usually at night when the
sand is cool) and the tiny turtles
will fight their way to the surface
and instinctively head for the.
ocean.
As we continued on our patrol,
I learned more about these amaz-
ing and strong-willed mothers.
Every 2-3 years, sea turtles
return to the beach where they
were born. The nesting season
spans from May 1 to Oct 31 of
each year.
They dig an egg chamber in a
moist spot on the beach and lay
the eggs in the nest After laying
the eggs, the careful mother will
cover them with sand. She mess-
es up the sand around the nest
and covers her tracks; then
returns to the'sea,
The eggs hatch after about 60
days. The hatchlings head for
water. Most don't make it to the
sea.
It's estimated that one out of
1,000 hatchlings lives to repro-
duce.
Baker-Hinton explained that
the various groups who monitor
the turtle nests have different
protocols. During the May- I
October nesting season, females
may nest 2-5 times and lay
approximately 100 eggs in each
nest
Hatching occurs, usually en
masse, after 45-60 days.
Depending on the organization,
each nest is marked, monitored
and protected. -
I Baker-Hinton follows the park
protocol and does nothing.to
interfere with the natural hatch-
ing process.

FILE PHOTO


The last time the Curtins went on a cruise,
one of us had hair and the other had a
waist. I'11 leave it to you to figure out who
is which.
The change in our physiognomy notwithstand-
ing, my Adult Supervision and I have signed up for
the Book Lover's Cruise aboard Celebrity Cruise
line's Celebration. The ship doesn't leave the dock
until November, but I'm excited about it already.
It's a fund-raiser for the Book Island Festival $50
of my fare will go to this festival that showcases
local authors and is now drawing writers from
across the country.
The Celebration will leave Jacksonville about 4
p.m., on Saturday, the 5th of November; by the time
we find our staterooms and get settled in, it will be
time for milk and cookies in one of the ship's many
lounges. I'm sure that Rich Smith, who, in addition
to his duties at St Peter's Episcopal Church, has
agreed to be our Book Lover's Cruise director, will
have cooked up a Saturday night literary get
together.
Sunday will be a day at sea, and that's when the
fun will start for us readers and writers. Stuart B.
Mclver is the author of Hemingway's Key West, and
he has graciously agreedto talk to us about writ- '
ing, Key West, and of course, Mr. Hemingway.
That's all in preparation for our Monday arrival in
the Conch Republic. We'll have most of the day to
wanderthe town, and I've been told that people are
working hard to arrange a special tour of the
famous writer's home. I hope they can pull this off;
I've visited there once before, but 1 have questions
I forgot to askthe first time.
We'll leave Key West late Monday afternoon to
sail toward aTuesday afternoon arrival at Nassau.
Rich might even sneak in a short workshop during
our Tuesday morning cruise. I hear that Dickie
Anderson and her Big Guy have signed up for the
trip; perhaps we can persuade her to share the
secret of her success with us. Even I might be
tempted to discuss the writer's craft over yet anoth-
er glass of milk. Surely after over 30 years. as a pro-
tessional writer, I must have learned something


worth passing along.
Never fear; there will be
plenty of things for our non-
writers to do. I'm sure Rich
I .. will address the needs of the
non-literary, even as he
orchestrates gatherings of
:. writers and readers. I know
... that my Adult Supervision is
already planning how he is
Cara Curtin going to entertain himself
While I am doing writerly
things.
CITY Wednesday will be another
SIDEBAR day at sea, and this time, Steve
261-5845 Berry will share his writing
wisdom with us. I read The
Amber Room when it was first released, but my
aging brain has since deposited its finer details
into the recycle bin. I'm going to wait until we get a
little closer to cruise time before I read his latest,
The Third Secret, so I have a better chance of
remembering it. By the way, Don Shaw at Books
Plus will give you a 20 percent discount when you
buy either (orboth!) of these authors books in
preparation for your cruise.After a last dance and
a nightcap on Wednesday night, we'll wake up
bright and early in Jacksonville so we can resume
our real lives in Paradise.
I know November sounds like it's a long way
off, but that's not truein the cruise world. I've
learned that these ships like to have their sa6okings
nailed down well in advance of their departure
dates. The Celebration is no exception: Boko--
Island Festival has been given a special block bof
staterooms, accompanied by a special rate. If you
love books and writing or love someone who
does now's your chance for a cut-rate getaway
with a literary slant.
But don't tarry; these special rooms and their
special rates will disappear in a couple o weeks.
Give Angela Wallace a callat The Travel Agency
(261-5914) and reserve'your cabin on the Book
Lovers Cruise. Bon voyage!

HILDA Continued from 8A
Our Associational Trip to
Idaho July 9-16 has the following:
from Amelia Baptist, a team of
seven; from Hilliard First Baptist,
one; from Gray Gables First
Baptist, 31!
Please pray for all of our teams
and for the people they will be
ministering to. (Source of these
trips: The Northeaster, Dr. David
Drake, director of missions.)
Gas up and go with God! When
was the last time you did some-
thing for someone with no expec-
tation of a payback? Well, it hap-
pened on June 14. Members of
Memorial United Methodist
Church, where the Rev. Bruce
Jones is pastor, were pumping
gasoline at the Smile Service
Station on Sadler Road. They were
giving away $5 gift certificates for
the purchase of gas! They were
also giving away cookies and
lemonade! And they were letting
everyone know that Memorial
United Methodist, 601 Centre St.,
Fernandina Beach, is a full serv-
ice church! They washed wind-
shields, pumped gas, were smiling
and showing the wonderful love of
Jesus to each and every person at
the pump. God will surely bless
you, and who knows, maybe that
gas you pumped, the owner will
show up at our church and shake
your hand on Sunday!
The First Presbyterian Church
news reveals "The Beginning of
Father's Day." One Sunday in
1909, a young woman named
Sonora Dodd sat in a pew listen-
ing to a sermon honoring moth-
ers. Her mother had died some
years before, so her father had
raised her by himself. She began
to wonder why there wasn't a day
to honor fathers.
Sonora decided to arrange for
a tribute to be paid to her father in
her hometown of Spokane, Wash.


The date was June 19, 1910. Many
believe that this was the begin-
ning of Father's Day.
Another view is that Dr. Robert
Webb, pastor of Central Church,
in Fairmont, W. Va., held a service
giving tribute to fathers in 1908.
Regardless of which story is the
correct one, it is certain that
President Calvin Coolidge was the
first president to choose a special
day to honor fathers. He pro-
claimed the third Sunday in June
as Father's Day in 1924.
"Honor your Father as the
Lord your God has commanded
you." Deut. 5:16.
"May our Great Heavenly
Father continue to watch over us
and keep us in His Loving Care."

SPORTS MEDICINE
GREGORY SMITH, M.D.



Do not


ignore the


lightning.

t is that time of year
when thunderstorms
become a weekly occur-
rence. Storms unfortu-
nately will interrupt your
leisure time. Quite often you
find yourself on the golf
course, the beach or out on
the boat when a storm begins
to approach. Too often peo-
ple ignore the danger and try
to get in a few more holes or
spend a few more minutes on
the beach. This is simply
tempting fate.
Lightning kills more peo-
ple every year in the United
States than any other weath-
er event. Lightning kills
about 100 people across the
country annually, and Florida
has the highest number of
lightning strikes to ground.
Knowing some simple facts
and using some common
sense can save your life.


You should
always be aware
of how close a
storm is to you.
The flash to
bang"method
is an easy way
to calculate
that distance.

Lightning commonly
strikes the highest point in
an open area. If you are on
the beach, in an open field,
on the golf course, or out on
the water, get out of the area,
immediately when a storm
approaches. Storms often
approach rapidly, and we are
caught unexpectedly in a
dangerous situation.
You should always be
aware of how close a storm is
to you. The "flash to bang"
method is an easy way to cal-
culate that distance. Most
people don't do the calcula-
tion correctly though, and
over-estimate how far away
the storm is. Here is the cor-
rect way: After you see the
lightning flash, count in sec-
onds until you hear the thun-
der. Each five-second count
is one mile. For example, 15
seconds means the storm is
three miles away. Storms can
move fast, so head indoors
before a storm gets within
those three miles. A sudden
drop in the temperature or
increase in the wind also sig-
nals and impending storm.
If you are caught in a
storm and cannot get to shel-
ter, get down as low as possi-
ble. A crouched position with
your head tucked down is
best. Don't lie down or sit.
You want to minimize your
contact with the ground.
Avoid standing under an iso-
lated tree; you are better off
getting into the woods. If you
feel an electrical charge or
the hair on your body is
standing on end, a lightning
strike may be imminent.
Stay away from metal
objects such as bleachers,
golf clubs, umbrellas or
fences. These not only can
attract lightning but also can
conduct it to you. If you are
in your car, stay put. Your car
provides safety due to the
steel cage around you, not
the rubber tires.
A frequent period of dan-
ger is just after the storm
seems to have passed. The
rain will often let up and the
sky may even seem to light-
en. People let down their
guard and assume it is safe.
This is happened two years
ago in Neptune Beach when
three people were hit after it
appeared a storm had passed


and the sky was actually
clearing. A storm may be
moving away, but lightning
can still strike to the area the
storm has passed. Lightning
strikes even 20 miles away
from a thunderstorm have
been recorded. It is a com-
mon belief is that if it is not
raining there is no danger.
This is simply untrue.

Atwood shoots round lower than his age


81-year-old posts

a 75 at Long Point

BETH JONES
News-Leader
He shoots aroimund 93 on average for an 18-hole
round of golf, but Cal Atwood, 81, of Fernandina
Beach knew early on June 25 was going to be a spe-
cial day. After nine holes at Long Point, he was even
par at 36.
"My target was to shoot my age," Atwood said. "I
tried to not pay too much attention on the back side
so I wouldn't blow it."
He didn't Atwood had a 39 on the back nine for a
75 total, three strokes over par, his best round ever.
He knew he would break 80 when it came to the
final three holes, but he birdied and finished with a
pair of pars.
"I almost never par 17 and 18," he said.
Atwood plays from the white tees for seniors and
the course at Long Point plays 5,480 yards.
"Long Point can rise up and strike you hard,"
Atwood said.
A veteran of World War II and hurt during the
invasion of Iwo Jima, Atwood had knee replacements
five years ago to repair damage done by shrapnel. He
was 76 .then and admitted it took a while before his
game returned.
It has and Atwood even collected a pair of holes-
in-one in the last two years one at Long Point and
the other at the Golf Club of Amelia Island. His first
came in 1956.
"It was a long time in between," he said.
On Wednesday, Atwood was back on the course,
trying his hand at the Golf Club of Amelia Island.
While his partners may drive much farther than
him, Atwood's short game accuracy keeps him com-
petitive.
"Shelly (Anderson) hit twice as far as me last
week," Atwood said. "It's not good judgment on my
part to play with these guys."
His partners might get on the green in two shots
while Atwood, who drives around 170 yards, takes'
three.
"Then hell two-putt and get a bogey at worse," said
Frank Reidinger. "He's straight down the middle."
ca' tM shot game helpsyme a great deal when-I'm
on," Atwood said.
Atwood's handicap is a 20.
"He should shoot 92, but he'll shoot an 85,"
Reidinger said.
"He's quite an individual," said Anderson, who
has been a playing partner with Atwood for five years.
"He's a heck of a competitor. He has more energy at
81 than most guys at 51. He has to be one of the best
over 80 golfers in the Southeast. He's a credit to the
game.
"He's incredible in terms of, at his age, the com-
petitiveness and the interest in getting better and
better."
While senior golfers try to shoot their age,
Atwood's 75 was six under his age and on one of
the most difficult courses in the area.
"The course is one of the tougher on the island,"
Anderson said. "He's very accurate. The short game,
being able to chip up and one-putt, he's extremely chal-
lenging in that regard.
"You might hit further, but you might land your-
self in trouble. But he's right down the middle. Drives
are for show, and putts are for dough."
Atwood has been a part-time resident of Amelia
Island since 1989. He and his wife, Carol, live in
Atlanta, Ga., six months out of the year.


Cal Atwood, 81, of Fernandina Beach posted
a 75 on the par-72 course at Long Point on
Amelia Island Plantation June 25. He wanted
to shoot better than his age and was six
strokes lower. Right, Atwood tees off on the
first hole Wednesday at the Golf Club of
Amelia Island. Although he can't drive as far
as he used to, Atwood's short game keeps his
scores low. Below right, he works on his put-
ting before an 18-hole round.

Stingrays beat Waves; host final meet Saturday

Stingray Jade Beasley dives in Saturday. Right, cowboy Lance Croft. Below left, keepers of the
ducks, Jeanette Brauda and Becky Christian, kept track of the records for the annual duck
race fund-raiser. Below center, is it a super hero, or is it Nick DeWald? Below right, seasoned
swimmer Corinne Priest offers counsel to a novice. Results, 15A.


The sun was hot and so were
the Fernandina Stingrays at their
meet last Saturday against the
Argyle Waves Swim. Team. The
Stingrays cruised easily to a win,
728-329. The Stingrays' record is
now 3-2.
The boys relay teams were blaz-
ing, and burned the previous team
records in the 200-yard freestyle
relay in two age groups, 11-12 and
15-18. Maggie Roebuck continued
to break records, this time setting
a new pool record in the girls 8-
and-under 25-yard backstroke.
The swimmers weren't the only
ones competing this week in the
pool. More than 600 plastic ducks
quacked their way through the
pool waters as the Stingrays held
their annual "5 Bucks A Duck"
fund-raiser. Monies raised will pay
for the team's trip to Champion-
ships in Jacksonville at the end of
the month, and will also fund con-
struction of a new storage building.
The winning duck owners were
Dylan Woods (sold by Madeline
Jarman), first place; Emily Kunzel-
man (sold by Grace Kunzelman),
second; Katie Combs (sold by
Megan Combs), third.
The duck race was preceded
by a family swim/race, where it is
rumored that the parents out-
swam their children. Way to go,
moms and dads, raising money for
a good cause and staying cool in
the process.
This Saturday, beginning at 9
a.m., the Stingrays swim their last
meet of the regular season in a
triple meet, hosting teams from
both the Baymeadows Swim Team
and Arlingwood Swim Club.

LOCAL CATCHES


SUBMnITED
Matt McCollum, 6, vacationing from Hudson, Ohio, shows a
pompano and Spanish mackeral he helped catch at the jet-
ties on July 3. On his first ocean fishing trip the team also
brought home 23 whiting. He was fishing with his father
Dan, grandfather Terry McCollum, aunt Kelly McCollum
and uncle John Riegler.


Bait, kin

T? he winds are predicted
to blow this weekend if
the weather forecast
holds true. However,
like most hardcore deep-sea fish-
ermen, you wait until that morn-
ing and make a final decision.
If fishermen can get offshore,
plenty of bait is still holding at
the St. Marys Sea Buoy. And
kingfish too.
"We just pulled up to the
STM BuoT and jigged up a few
nice cigar
minnows,"
Mark
Douglas
said. "I
barbed one
of the larger
minnows
and began
free lining
off from the
Terry Lacoss transom of
....-- our fishing
ONTHE boat where
a nice eight-
WATER pound king
mackerel
struck the bait. I bet we hadn't
been fishing more than five min-
utes!"
A mix of barracuda, king
mackerel, sailfish and even dol-
phin catches have been made
within a 15-mile ride from the St.
Marys inlet during the past few
days. Some of the best offshore
action has been coming from the
East FC live bottom where dol-
phin have been holding.
Tarpon are also biting at the
tip of the St. Marys jetty rocks
and should make a great show-
ing this weekend.
"We had a double header of
tarpon on," Capt. Tony Peeples


.gfish still holding offshore



J^|fflj~g^^a^^


TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Nancy Dunbar brought this nice kingfish to the Fernandina Harbor Marina.


said. "One of the tarpon jumped .
and tossed the hook free, but five
minutes later, we landed and
released a nice 100-pound silver
king."
"I saw a nice school of tarpon
in the mouth of Tiger Creek just
the other day," Capt. Adam Loud
said. "They were there on the
flood tide."
Red bass fishing has been
spotty in the backwater with
good catches coming at the St.
Marys rock jetties during the
falling tide. A high tide Saturday
will arrive at 11: 34 a.m. and a


low tide at 5:12 p.mn
Some of the best king mack-
erel fishing inshore has been
coming at the -south end of
Amelia Island, just off the beach-
es. Look for kingfish.to move in
close to the breakers during the
morning flood tide and hold on
the tide rips during the afternoon
during the falling tide.
Nice schools of menhaden
can be found at the south end of
Amelia Island along the beaches.
Look for the pelicans diving and
head that way!
The 80-degree surf tempera-


ture is really a blessing this year,
for deep-sea fishermen and con-
tinues to hold both baitfish
schools and game fish in our
local waters.
The News-Leader encourages
local anglers to submit photo-
graphs of exceptional catches. We
will publish them in this space on
Friday. E-mail photos to
b]ones@fbnewsleadercom, mail
them to P.O. Box 766, Fernandina
Beach, FL 32035, or drop them by
the News-Leader office at 511 Ash
St. in Fernandina Beach.


SUBMIrrED
Mike Jones of Atlanta recently landed this bull redfish while
fishing with Capt. Russell Tharin. "What was unusual about
the fish, aside from being so large, was that in the 10 years
I've been guiding I have only seen this occur once before
where a very large school of bull redfish would come to the
surface," Tharin said. "(Jones) cast a top water lure into the
maelstrom and caught that fish not on the bottom on bait, as
is generally done, but with a breathtaking surface strike!
The fish weighed 28 pounds and was released unharmed
returned to the ocean just off of Nassau Sound. Really excit-
ing stuff not only for Mike, but for a seasoned Orvis-
endorsed flyfishing guide as well."

worked the crowd for nearly
three hours with their unique
blend of blues, soul and funk.
"How about a little blues
tonight?" Davis asked the assem-
bled crowd. "I've got a little bit of'
rainy day blues.' '
It's clear from the start that
Karl W. Davis and the Milkmen
are not your garden-variety local
band. Sure, they've got drums,
bass, guitar and vocals covered
quite well. But they've also
thrown, in some harmonica, trum-
pet, trormbone, sa.tophone and
flute, and the end result is a
unique, multi-faceted sound you'd,
be hard-pressed to find anywhere
else.
Influenced by gospel music
and rhythm and blues from
Macon, Ga., Davis has toured
Europe and the United States.
He's performed with artists like
Widespread Panic, Moe and The
Rainforest Band. He's even
played in the parking lots at Phish
shows.
'There's a strong base in
blues," said Davis, describing his
music. "I'm a soul singer ... we
got a lot of different music going
on. a lot of blues and soul, a won-
derful mix."
The 39-year-old Davis. a native
of Kingsland, Ga., has officially
been a musician since he formed
his first band when he was 16. He

Cool off


with


summer


whites

ROBERT M \\ EINTRAUB
For the A\eus Leader
( nce upon a time, before
air-conditioning (if that
could be imagined
much less remem-
bered), when summer heat
arrived the fashion statement was
white. Men wore white suits
(preferably linen) and women
wore white dresses; both acces-
sorized with white shoes and: :
white straw hats. Summer meant
white. (I was once chastised for
wearing white slacks on a very.',
hot Sept. 23 because it was no
longer "sum- -
mer.")
Those
days are long '
gone but the :-. ,
fashion con-
tinues in the
wine world -
where white is the summer wine
of choice; their light crispness is
welcome when the mercury gets
over 85 and nudges 100; The
heavier reds of winter are no
longer refreshing and even some
of the hardy chardonnays no
longer are of interest. In a wine
tasting we had last year, chards
that were highly rated in
December couldn't make the cut
in June.
A good summer white wine is
one that is fresh, clear, crisp with
light fruit nuances. A gentle bev-
erage to be sipped slowly and
savored either as an aperitif or
over-a light meal of fin fish, shell
fish, pork or chicken Here is a
guide to sununer drinking relying
solely on wines available locally
under 820.
Pinot Gris
Known as pinot grigio when
grown in Italy. the grape is at its
best when produced in Alsace
west of the Rhine and on either
side of the Columbia River. These
wines are bone dry, but not as
acidic as their low cost Italian kin
that dominate the shelves in local
markets. Trimbach pinot gris is
the Alsatian to look for in the 515
to S20 range. Oregon's King's
Estate. which I've seen locally
from 313 to S17. is my favorite
summer white for its refreshing
crispness, strong fruit flavors and
long aftertaste. Washington
State's Chaiteau St. Michelle (811
to 813) is a strong second
although we haven't seen too

Q You may be on the wrong track with your
Objection to the three-legged aliens in "War of
the Worlds" when you write, "Three legs are inher-
ently not stable." Amateur carpenters are advised to
build three-legged stools rather than four-legged
stools. Why? Because, even if the seat is not level,
all three legs will be in contact with the surface.
The real problem with the machines in the movie
is that they have a very high center of gravity, so
high that any rapid locomotion is likely to tip them
over, especially when they stop or change direction.
- Mike Barnas, Chicago

A .Seeking an expert opinion, I contacted Jessica
.Banks, a Ph.D. candidate at the MIT Computer
Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, wh6se thesis
involves a robot with one point of contact. She con-
sulted her colleague Dan Paluska, a Ph.D candidate
at the MIT Media Lab, an expert on robot legged
locomotion who was featured on the cover of Wired
magazine.
They began by pointing out: "Your comment, 'If
evolution has taught us anything, it is that the limbs
of living things, from men to dinosaurs to spiders to
centipedes, tend to come in numbers divisible by
four' is wrong and misleading. Numbers of limbs


are divisible by two due to the principle of bilateral
symmetry to which nature adheres."
I meant, of course, to write "two" instead of
"four," but was attacked by a brain cloud. My online
review has been corrected.
Banks. and Paluska continue with a fascinating
discussion of the functions of three legs among both
living and mechanical creatures, which I am print-
ing in full on rogerebert.com. Here are some bullet
points:

"A three-legged chair or table is very stable
when it is still. However, the answer isn't so easy
when one considers three-legged locomotion....
Things have a right and a left, a front and a back.
This has to do with the fact that animals tend to trav-
el in a certain direction, facing forward when doing
so. Having an even number of legs allows animals to
be balanced as they travel forward."
"There is a rhythm to walking and running
that may be difficult to achieve with a three-legged
machine. A kangaroo is the closest thing to a three-
legged animal because it uses its tail. However, its
tail is not the same as its legs, and the tail does not
touch the ground when the kangaroo is hopping."
"The argument that nature didn't 'come up'
with such a creature doesn't hold much water.
Nature didn't come up with the wheel for locomo-
tion either. ... We could, for instance, imagine a
three-legged creature that stood still and upright for

the vast majority of its life. ... However, it would
be hard to imagine such a robot being efficient at,
locomoting over any significant distances."
"The height of the tripods and the fact that
they are top-heavy makes it plausible that one
would fall if one of its legs was damaged, especially
if the alien was in motion at the time of injury. This,
doesn't really say that much, though; considering
the fact that if you were to kick one of my legs
while I was running, or even give it a forceful, unex-
pected blow when I was just loitering about, I
would most likely fall to Earth as well.
"So, who knows if it is PRACTICAL or not for-
a robot to walk on three legs? ... Ultimately, it would
all depend on the system as a whole (speed, passive
stability, simplicity, energy consumption, navigabili-
ty, human-exterminating-ability, etc.), the available
technologies (sensors, computation, actuators,
etc.), the environment in which the robot was sup7
posed to perform, and, well, who was funding it."


tion of Earth. Humans are ancillary to, their plans
and quite inconsequential;
Wells' book is quite remarkable. It's the first lit-
erary treatment of the hostile indifference of the
universe, which points up our own relative insignifi-
cance, literally played out in the Martians' callous
annihilation. You seem to have-missed this. -
Kevin Mequet, San Jose, Calif.

A .I did read the book, when I was 10. But if the
:X. explanations aren't in the movie, they aren't
relevant, because the movie creates its own closed
system.

If you had read it, you'd know all the answers to the pleased by a piece on the neglected Lloyd and dis-
questions you posed. appointed you didn't treat the great comic more
George H.W. Bush, Norman Schwarzkopf, favorably. It is tiresome to read another lament over
George W. Bush and Karl Rove did not invent the Lloyd's inferiority to Chaplin and Keaton, especially

Wells did, and they stole shamelessly from him film until "Safety Last"
without knowing this either. The aliens have a You fault Lloyd for his "ordinariness," yet fail to
whole strategy of invasion, capitulation, domina- note that Lloyd's naturalistic characterization was a
tion, colonization, Martian-forming and domestica- big first for film comedy, and paved the way for


hundreds of romantic comedies to come. Or that
Lloyd's feature films combined the emotional reso-
nance of Chaplin with the cinematic virtuosity of
Keaton.
It was none other than Orson Welles who lob-
bied for Lloyd's genius years ago: "Harold Lloyd -
he's surely the most underrated of them all. The
intellectuals don't like the Harold Lloyd character
- that middle-class, middle-American, all-American
college boy. There's no obvious poetry to it, and
they miss that incredible technical brilliance. ;..
Someday hell get his proper place which is very
high."
I envy you. You have many Harold Lloyd films
ahead of you, and Lloyd has many tricks up his
sleeve to surprise you with, whether in the formal
cinematic beauty of "The Kid Brother," the uproari-
ous surrealism of "Why Worry?" or the sheer
crowd-pleasing fun of "The Freshman." I urge you
to watch these comedies with an open mind. Let
Lloyd's brilliance come to you on his own terms. -
Yair Solan, Brooklyn, N.Y.

A. So I will. The Lloyd films were very hard to
. see for many years, and are now in national
release in art and repertory theaters in preparation
for DVD editions.

Q. People seem to be blaming the movies for the
slump in the box office this year. I feel it's the
actual experience of going to the theater that
makes people stay away. When I saw "War of the
Worlds," the projection was slightly off and fuzzy,
and certain scenes weren't framed properly. That


was nothing compared to the theatergoers who
were talking and directing glib remarks to the
screen. One answered his phone and started talk-
ing loudly.
Going to the movies is my favorite thing in the
world. But now incidents like that happen about
four out of five times I go. Isn't there anything the-
ater chains can do to promote quiet screenings and
make going to the movies fun again? Mark
Donahue, Philadelphia

A I've received a lot of feedback just like yours.
People are also angry at the commercials
they're forced to sit through. I've heard from peo-
ple who now mostly attend "art theaters," not
because they dislike commercial films, but because
they know the audience behavior will be more
appropriate.

k The animated feature "Madagascar" has two
.illogical scenes where the male lion gets
kicked from the front between his back legs and
doubles over like a man kicked in the testicles.
Problem: A male lion, like all cats, has his testicles
located on his back side and there is no way they
could be kicked by standing in front of the lion who
is "rampant" on his hind legs. I suspect that you
noticed this error, but were too politically correct,
,or lacked the cajones, to point this out in your
review of the movie. Michael L. Stoianoff,
Anchorage, Alaska

A .Just ignorance on my part, actually. This info
:.could be a life-saver.

Milkmen" on board.
"It was something we've
always wanted," Davis said. "...
We said, We're gonna go in a
room together and hammer out
songs.'"
So while Karl W. Davis and the
Milkmen belt out song after song
onstage, Davis's wife, Tina Davis,
alternates between dancing and
selling the CDs.
The St. Marys crowd was
enthusiastic cheering, dancing,
and laughing along with Davis's
onstage banter.
"This is just a classic, fun good
time," said audience member
Adam Ziegler, a Fernandina
Beach resident who was watch-
ing the band for the first time.
"It's just really good music ...
great for dancing."

WINE Continued from 1B
much of the pinot gris on local
shelves recently (Publix had but
one bottle on its shelf when we
were there recently).

Johannesberg Riesling
Riesling is softer than pinot
gris, less dry with more fruit in
the mouth. (Demi-sec is the
French description.) It goes
very well with cheese and light
hors d'oeuvres. Trimbach has
the best aftertaste. It had been
selling around $16 locally but I
just saw it for $20 at Publix, so it
may be moving out of this col-
umn's price range. Chateau Ste.
Michelle makes a good version
of the Johannesberg style and
can be found at $12. I don't rec-
ommend the German rieslings
for summer as they are heavy
and sweet. There is a wine called
"grey riesling" which is not a
true riesling, but made from the
trousseau grape. Amelia Liquors
has a couple of brands worth
trying, although I have not.

Sauvignon blanc
Originally a fine wine from
France's Loire Valley (Sancerre
and the pricey Pouilly Fume),
the grape found a home in New
Zealand and SBs from the
Marlborough district have devel-
oped a reputation as the finest in
the world. Chile has quietly
entered the market. These are
dry wines with a citric quality
which make them excellent for
highly sauced seafood. Our
favorite's here arhethe Kiwi Kim
Crawford ($15 to $18), which is
softer and less acidic than most
with a very long finish, and the
Chilean Veramonte ($10,
Publix). Veramonte has a
refreshing citric crispness but
lacks the long finish of the
Crawford.
Roseks
I recently wrote that roses
have a bad reputation and actual-
ly are a fun wine for summer.
These are not the cloyingly
sweet Portuguese Lancers and
Mateus. They are medium dry,
with full fruit flavors. The
American Renwood (Amelia
Liquors, $11) is a vibrant wine,
with good berry flavors and the
cranberry coloring to be expect-
ed from a 100 percent syrah
ros6. Goats do Roam ros6 from
South Africa (Harris Teeter $9)

SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER
Karl W. Davis and the Milkmen have got drums, bass, guitar and vocals covered quite well. But
they've also thrown in some harmonica, trumpet, trombone, saxophone and flute, and the end
result is a unique, multi-faceted sound you'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.


During a break in the show,
several people approach Davis at
the bar to praise the band and the
music, including St. Marys City
Council member Doug Vaught,
who asks Davis about the possi-


ability of performing at one of the
festivals in St. Marys.
In the end, Davis says it's all
about friends, talent and fun.
"It doesn't matter if you sell a
million records or just one, it's


your duty to use your God-given
talent, don't sit on it," he said.
"...These guys have become my
very good friends ... everyone in
the band has soul."

o


has a quirky demi-sec flavor as it
is a blend of 10 different wines
with cinsault dominant. The
more delicate French Domaine
de Fontsainte ($10 at Amelia
liquors), from Corbieres in the
Pyr6n6es foothills, is a blend of
grenache, syrah, mourvedre and
carignan which reflects Spanish
influence. It has a crystalline
salmon color with a touch of
amethyst. The aroma is a deli-
cate blend of fresh berries. It is
very well balanced and the flavor
stays long on the palate.

Viognier
Pronounced veo-nyay, this
wine was a rarity until just
recently. Grown almost exclu-
sively in Condrieu in the north-
ern Rh6ne for 2,000 years, nowa-
days, this stylish exotically
aromatic variety has spread
around the world. The grape
requires a long ripening period
that produces a semi-dry white
wine, lots of fruit and an intense
flavor mingling with aromas of
musk. I prefer it as an aperitif
with medium to strong cheeses.
Vintages, the new wine shop on
Eighth Street near Ash Street,
has the best of a recent tasting,
an Australian from the venerable
Yalumba estate, for $11.
Grillo
I shouldn't forget my "find" of
May, the Sicilian grillo, a dry,
crisp, aromatic wine that was a
great match with full-flavored
seafood dishes. Feudo Arando
grillo is available at Amelia
liquors for $10. Golden in color,
with citric lemon-lime aromas
accented by a gentle whiff of
wildflowers, it is full-bodied with
crisp citric flavors and pleasant
acidity. It has a long finish.

These wines should not be
served too cold as the chill will
prevent the complexity of flavor
and aroma from developing.
Refrigerators chill wines to
around 40 degrees, which is 10-
15 degrees too cold for good
white wines. If you don't have a
temperature-controlled wine
chiller, take a bottle of refrigerat-
ed white wine out about 15 min-
utes before serving to let it
warm up.

Robert Weintraub writes about
wine monthly. He welcomes your

CINDERELLA rom lB
what cynical, Fairy Godmother
(Millicent Sylvester).
The primary comic relief of
the story comes from
Cinderella's stepmother and step-
sisters, with their over-the-top
costumes and constant demands
on Cinderella. Played with gusto
by Lisa Clarson, Alexia Adcock
and Lara Mainard, they get the
most laughs from the audience,
while the sweet courtship of
Cinderella and her prince will
please the hopeless romantic in
anyone.
And the action isn't limited to
the stage audience participation
