of fines and penalties for tampering with or damaging nests. Beach chairs and towels left out

Thanks to a 2002 voter-
approved amendment to the state
constitution to offer voluntary pre-
kindergarten to Florida children,
some local 4-year-olds will be
going off to classrooms next
month along with older children.
But in Nassau County, they
won't be going to public school
classrooms. Earlier this year,
Nassau County School
Superintendent John Ruis said he
didn't anticipate having the space
in public schools for the 617 4-
year-olds it was estimated would
enroll in the program.
Instead, private providers will
offer the voluntary pre-kinder-
garten program to local students.
The program is funded by the
state, so it's free of charge for par-
Some providers say they are
surprised by the low enrollment
for the program, which for most
will begin in August.

Fernandina Beach. ... I would
like to fill all of these classes."
Eleanor Simmons, director of
Rose-Lennie Developmental
Learning Center, agreed. Rose-
Lennie will also offer the volun-
tary pre-kindergarten program in
the fall.
"(The curriculum) is really
geared to help the child get pre-
pared for kindergarten," Simmons
said. '"They'll learn social skills,
cognitive skills, a lot of literacy -
everything that will prepare them
for kindergarten."
Mathews said she has 54

garten program at La Petit, but so

At Jumping Jax Child
Development Center in Hilliard,
director Cathy Alford said only
four of their 18 spaces have been

"It's surprising," she. said.
"Enrollment is much lower than I
thought it would be."
The Florida Department of
Education estimated 70 percent
of 4-year-olds in Nassau County
would attend a public school pre-
kindergarten program if one were
provided, which would equate to
about 617 students.
But according to Teresa
Matheny, director of family and
provider services for Episcopal
Children's Services, only about
half of 235 available spaces for the
program in Nassau County have
been filled.

The yearly landfill assessment
could more than double to $100
per household for Nassau County
That's if the Nassau County
Commission follows County
Administrator Mike Mahaney's
plan to solve the county's vexing
landfill problem.
Mahaney said Wednesday he
wants to increase the life of the
landfill by no longer accepting out-
of-county waste. But that means
assessments would have to
increase here at home to help
make up the difference in cash
If the county follows through,


hold would increase from $45 to
$100, which was the rate before
commissioners voted to lower it in
Commissioners have rejected
proposals to increase the landfill
assessment each of the past two
.It's a stop-gap measure,
Mahaney said, but it's one of the
few options available to the county
this year. Whatever plan the coun-
ty settles on "has to be out the
door" within 60 days due to budg-
et deadlines, he said.

Hurricane Emily

'horrible, terrifying

Visualize the worst thunder-
storm you've ever seen, multiply
that by five, make it last all night
long and you'll have a remote idea
of what it's like to endure a cate-
gory 5 hurricane, says Ed Gavron.
The local dive shop owner
returned Tuesday from Cozumel,
where he and 45 members of a
scuba trip rode out Hurricane
Emily in three "safe rooms" at their
hotel. They had tried to leave
before the storm but all flights

were canceled.
"It was violent," Gavron said
Wednesday as he served cus-
tomers at his shop on Fletcher
Avenue. "The sound will never
leave your head. It was constant
for five hours. I'd always heard
about 5's, but there is no way to
compare a 5 to anything."
While weather forecasts said
Emily was a category 4 with winds
of 135 miles per hour, Gavron said

Prevent eye damage




0 =


T hose blue, brown or
3" hazel "windows of the
soul," as our eyes have
poetically be called,
tend to become less clear as the
years pass-especially if we have
spent a lot of time in the sun with-
out protective sunglasses. That is
one of several risk factors in the
development of glaucoma.
Knowing about the vision
problems that are most likely to
affect us as we get older can help,
us prevent serious damage if we
start preventive measures soon
enough. Here are some of the
most common ailments that
begin to appear in mid-life:
Presbyopia: Around 40
years old, most people notice that
fine print is becoming more diffi-
cult to read, and they hold read-
ing material further and further
away. As we age, the lens and eye
muscles become less flexible,
and the ability of the eye to alter
its focus gradually diminishes. If,
there are no other problems,
such as astigmatism, a simple
pair of drug-store reading glasses
will suffice when needed only for
close work or reading.
Glaucoma: Sometimes
tefei-e'd tb as "h il ith i h,' "
glaucoma reduces the field of
vision until all peripheral, or side
vision, is lost. Caused by.
increased pressure within the eye
that damages the optic nerve, it
can be halted, but not reversed,
with eye drops prescribed by an

"'-- ophthalmolo-
gist .
A pressure
+-^, test for this
disease is
included in a
: -'i good eye
exam, which
should be done every two years
in adults by the time they are 40
years old.
*Cataracts: In addition to
excessive sunlight, other risk fac-
tors include smoking, obesity,
steroid medications, and dia-
betes. Clumps of protein reduce
the light that reaches the retina.
and vision becomes blurry as the
protein clouds the lens of the eye.
Stronger glasses can make up
for this for a while, but when
cataracts become a problem, they),
can be surgically removed and
replaced with an artificial lens.
Two new lenses are available that
do even more; they can improve
vision beyond what it was before
cataracts formed, often eliminat-
ing the need for corrective glass-
es. These lenses and the proce-
dure are still very new, and not
available with all ophthalmolo-
gists, and, while Medicare and
most insurance companies will
pay for the surgery, the cost of
the special lens and it is expen-'
sieI- is an out-of-pocket expense
fo- the patient.
Macular degeneration: This
is the leading cause of legal blind-
ness in people 65 and older.
There are two kinds: "dry" and
"wet" forms. With both types,
central vision is impaired or dis-

appears entirely, making it impos-
sible to read except with certain
'visual aids. and certainly impossi-
ble to drive.
In the "dry form, light sensi-
tive cells of the macula break
down. The macula is a tiny, pin-
point organ at the very back of
the retina, where light rays con-
verge. The age-related dry form
happens gradually, and victims
are unaware during its early "
stages that they are losing their
eyesight-possibly because the
peripheral vision, or side vision.
remains unaffected. I
In the ''wet"foim,; new blood
vessels form and break on and.
around the macula, causing sud-
den and serious damage. If done
.immediately, and that means
within hours, extensive damage
can sometimes be halted with
lasersurgery, which cauterizes ,
the bleeding vessels. While much
more common in middle-age to
older people, this acute form of
macula damage can occur at a
younger age, too.
One of the first signs is that
vertical lines may appear wavy.
People who have experienced
this type of macula degeneration
in one eye are given a printed
grid of vertical and horizontal
lines and told to check every day
for an area of wavy lines :'"
Stnok&r-Mand lighWt4yd eo-
ple are more susceptible to macu-
lar degeneration, and excessive
exposure to sunlight over a numni-
ber of years seems to play a.part.

Military phone cards
In cooperation with the News-
Leader and Nassau County'':.
Record, the Nassau Federated
Republican Womenx are soliciting
ATT 120-minute prepaid phone
cards to be sent to U.S. service'
men and women overseas.
The cards may be purchased
either locally or for a much bet-
ter exchange rate online at the
military exchange site www.
The cards may be dropped at
either newspaper office. The
News-Leader is located at 511
Ash St., Fernandina Beach. The
Record is at 617317 Brandies'
Ave. in Callahan.

Floaters: Little clumps of ,
protein in the vitreous gel can
create shadows on the retina that
look like tiny black specks that
seem to move around. You may
think you have something in your
eye. These are called floaters,
and usually go away on their own.
But if you should suddenly have
many of them at once, or if you
have flashes of light, this could
mean a torn retina. See an eye
doctor and have this checked.
S. Dry eyes: More likely to
occur as we age, dry eyes that
burn and feel scratchy can have a
variety of causes, including a side
effect of certain medications.
This condition is ordinarily treat-
ed with drops of artificial tears,
available 'over-the-counter, but a
new prescription medication
called Restasis actually increases
the production of tears. However.
like many effective but powerful
prescriptions, there can be side
effects. fthe condition is very
mild, OTC drops may be enough
for comforLt
For general eye health, and
especially for prevention of macu-
lar degeneration, the National
Eye Institute recommends a diet
that includes plenty of antioxi-
dants found in fruits and vegeta-
bles, 80-mg. of zinc, 500 mg. of
vitamin C. 15 mg. of beta caio- '
tih@,'hili 400 IUI of vitamin E.,
These amounts are found in most
standard multivitamins.

about going against the Planning
Advisory Board," Mayor Ken
Walker said. "But. eventually
something's going to be built out
"I have mixed emotions about
this really," Vice Mayor Beano
Roberts said. "(But) the more I
think about this, I don't have a prob-
lem with it."
"I've got a problem with it from
the airport standpoint It's no dif-
ferent than Crane Island to me in
that it could affect the airport oper-
ations in the long run," said
Commissioner John Crow, a former
air traffic controller.
But any reduction in potential
traffic on the parkway "I have to
look favorably upon," he said. The
change would reduce traffic trips
from an estimated 5,300 per day to
1,040 with the change from indus-
trial to residential.
"I personally feel the city owes
some debt to the O'Conners," Crow
said. "More than once since I've
been on the commission, they
stepped forward when we had a
problem and helped us out by the
use of their property."
The planning board voted 7-0 on
June 22 to recommend denial of the
comprehensive plan change to the
city commission, citing future air-
port expansion and surrounding
incompatible use.
"The proposed development is

"Compatibility is not as simple as
saying residential is incompatible
with industrial," he said, noting
existing buffers surrounding the
site. "We will have what we believe
is a very compatible situation."
Shannon O'Conner spoke on
behalf of his family, owners of about
two-thirds of the properties within
the Amelia Island Industrial Park
site along the parkway.
Although the family has been
"fairly successful" marketing its
property, light industrial ware-
housing is "not the ticket" the
remaining 23 acres, O'Conner said.
Explaining that his family has
tried unsuccessfully to attract avia-
tion-related tenants, O'Conner said,
"It's just not working," and added,
"The best place for industrial to be
is off the island" because the prop-
erty "is so high priced that it's not

Commercial pilot, flight instruc-

Reilly also asked the commission
to deny the request "Certainly a
multi-unit housing development,
nested, really bordered ostensibly
on three sides by airport, could
hardly be considered a development

LANDFILL Continued from ]A
county. At its current rate of flow,
the 'landfill will be full by 2008.
That's well before the bond is
scheduled to be paid off in 2013.
So the county is faced with paying
millions of dollars for five years to
pay off the bond while it receives no
income from the landfill.
To extend the life of the facility,
Mahaney said the county could no
longer accept garbage from its
largest customer, Clay County,
when that contract expires in
That would decrease the flow
by about 120,000 tons a year, he
said, and extend the life of the land-
fill to about 2017 beyond expira-
tion of the bond.
By extending the life of the land-
fill, the county will also lower the
amount of money it needs to set
aside each year for closure and post-
closure of the landfill, possibly by $1
million a year.
"But when Clay County goes
away, Clay County's money goes
away," Mahaney said. "So what I've
come up with is an interim solu-
Mahaney said future solutions
might include adding a commer-
cial assessment, and paying off
some of the bond with money from
the 1-cent sales tax.
The county does not currently
have a commercial landfill assess-
ment and there is not enough time
this year to set it up and incorporate
it into the landfill fees, Mahaney
It would require an inventory of
container size and landfill usage for
every commercial business in the
county, and could not be accom-
plished within 60 days. ,
For now, a residential assess-
ment is the one area that can be
targeted for an increase.
"It's an interim plan, until we
can address other issues," said
Mahaney. "All of these are ulti-
mately board decisions, these are
just recommendations."
No public hearing on the matter
has been set.
The county reduced staff and
cut hours at the landfill earlier this
year to lower costs.

between Sadler Road and Peters

often she sees owners let their
dogs run freely on the beach.
It's common practice on the

the law. There is a leash law in
both the county and the city.

misconceptions and lack of infor-
mation are responsible for low
enrollment. She said she's spo-
ken to parents who believed they
had to be low-income to qualify,

this year the problem seems espe-
cially acute.
And there's only so much the
turtle patrol can do to protect an
invaded nest In one instance, the
nest was covered back up, and a
mesh screen placed over it for
added protection. But there's no
guarantee that will save some of
the eggs.
"We have had instances where
some hatchlings have emerged
from a nest that's been struck,"
she said. "But once a nest is
opened, it's pretty much fair game
for birds, insects and crabs.
"It's a serious problem."
And what makes it frustrating
for the turtle patrol, now in its
20th year, is this is one man-made
problem that has a solution.

FRIDAY, JULY 22,2005/News-Leader



Welcome to Florida
As a senior citizen who has lived
on the island for over 70 years I feel
obligated to voice my concerns for
the planned development of the
city's waterfront ("Who's designing
marina? It's city commissioners,"
July 15).
Since Fernandina is the marine
gateway to the state of Florida, it
seems logical to conclude that the
state should have a vested inter-
est in seeing that the most attrac-
tive design is adopted that
embraces a "welcome" to the state
of Florida.
When we take'a global obser-
vation of the landmarks that catch
our attention and admiration one in
particular stands out, and that is
the opera house in Sydney,
Australia's harbor.
The state should be invited to
finance an appropriate landmark
at Florida's front door! I am visu-
alizing a fountain-pool for the man-
atees and otters, a fitting intro-
duction to our endangered marine
The state could sponsor a
design contest and suitable award
. given for the winning design.
The second most important
aspect of concern is a showplace
for the shrimp fleet including a
museum depicting the history of
the industry.
It would behoove the city com-
mission to appoint a committee of
concerned citizens to oversee this
project. People interested in serv-
ing on this panel should be invited
to submit their resumes so that
the best qualified will be selected,
no Realtors or developers
should be considered.

Julie Ferreira's Viewpoint ("Too
many Crane Island questions," July
15) cuts to the essence of the
shenanigans going on with the
Crane Island development By put-
ting the spotlight on the legality
of the development rights the
Amelia Island Co. (AIC) wants to
shift to Crane Island, she has
exposed the scam the developers

are trying to put over on the coun-
Ferreira's article could have
gone farther. The DRI
Development Order for the PLM
West project, commonly known as
Long Point, specifically states that
the rights to build 800 units grant-
ed in 1985 were to expire when
"build-out" is completed. "Build-
out" means when the holder of the
rights has completed development
The development order also says
annual reports must continue until
build-out or 14 years, whichever is
later. As AIC, which acquired Long
Point in a merger, had no proper-
ty left to develop in 1999, the devel-
opment rights expired that year.
A year ago, when AIC decided
to come to the aid of the Crane
Island developers, they realized
their development rights were on
shaky legal ground so they came
before the county commission to
revise the development order and
establish 2012 as the build-out date.
The commissioners took AIC at its
word and didn't look into the fine
print. One county official did raise
the issue, but he was quickly'
silenced. Today's commissioners
cannot ignore this now that the
wording of that original DRI devel-
opment order is out in the open.
When the AIC came to the
county last summer to change the
Long Point development order,
they made another interesting
claim. Howard Landers, AIC's
agent, stated that all impacts on0
services (water, sewer, police and
fire protection, schools) "have been
fully accounted for or mitigated....
No additional impacts. on these
facilities will occur as a result" of
the changes to the DRI develop-
ment order. I am told that this
wording means that no additional
impact fees can be charged to the
128 units that would be built using
the transferred rights. County and
city commissioners who expect a
windfall from those impact fees
will be very much surprised when
the invoices are returned by AIC
using the above wording.
'The DRI development order
also contains provisions to retain
"100 percent of the canopy of the
trees within the buffer" and "not
more than 30 percent of the shrub

firmly attached to the development
rights. If the county ignores the
build-out limitations of the devel-
opment order to allow use of the
Long Point rights on Crane Island,
will it also ignore these vegetation
protections to allow Crane Island to
be clear cut?

Air bags needed
Re: "Lumber truck crash kills 1"
in Hilliard, July 6. While attempts
of Nassau County Fire-Rescue

from another station. This may not
have saved him but air bags are
another tool for rescuers to use.

able to understand how the theft might have gone
undetected. But to completely miss a relatively sim-
ple embezzlement scheme that spanned at least
eight years and looted more than $1 million from
the county, well, that's hard to understand.
But perhaps the most intriguing question of all is
how did the new clerk of the court, John Crawford,
discover the missing funds within weeks of taking
office when his predecessor, Chip.Oxley, twice
asked FDLE investigators, "How did this (the
embezzlement) go on for so long undetected?"
Apparently Oxley really had no clue, since he
allowed Mixon to retire, and then rehired her -
(after the required 30-day break) at a higher salary,
even while the thefts were still in progress. (It is
now believed that Mixon continued to visit the
clerk's office during the 30-day break, a fact Oxley
should have been aware of, and should have pre-
I have yet to hear a word of appreciation (or apol-
ogy) from any of the county naysayers who were
outraged when Crawford originally went to outside
agencies to request investigative assistance with
financial irregularities in the clerk's office. And
speaking of outside investigative agencies, anyone
taking bets on when we'll see the results from that
controversial "internal investigation" that was-also
triggered by questions raised by the new clerk of
the court? It should be very interesting to compare
the results of these two inquiries (external vs. inter-
nal) that is, if we ever get them.

Acaring community
I recently underwent a serious surgery and not
having any medical insurance, I was looking at an
enormous expense that was well over $20,000. I was
fearful about my prognosis, naturally, especially
since I have a family history of cancer, but not nearly
as.frightened as how I was going to pay for it
When I mentioned my plight to my dear friends,
Eileen Shannon-Moore and Dickie Anderson, they
hugged me and wished me well, then straightened
their shoulders and went on an amazing mission to
hold a benefit in my honor to raise money for my
surgery. Embarrassed by my hardship, I was reluc-
tant to share my predicament with an entire commu-
nity; indeed, being of Yankee descent, where folks
keep their problems to themselves and persevere
out of foolish pride, I was unaccustomed to letting
people know that I needed help. But since I moved
to this very special place over two years ago, I've
realized that this is my home and the members of
,a my community are not just acquaintances, they are
t:inydamily..,idt Bl 'is wol fr h l ~', Ir.
Joe Helmes and his family at BA. Pig hosted the
Karing for Karen Benefit and it was a phenomenal
success; over 300 people arid businesses volunteered
their time, silent auction items, raffle contributions,
monetary donations and support to help raise money
to pay my medical bills. It was such an amazing
experience and I am truly humbled by the actions of
this fine community, and so blessed to live and work
here on Amelia Island.
I have since recovered from my surgery and
received a clean bill of health from my physician, Dr.
Jesse Greenblum, who I would like to thank for his
good work. I would also like to thank everyone who
contributed tothe benefit; there are so many names
that I can't include everyone in this letter, but I
would like to offer a special thank-you to Eileen

Crane Islan

I n response to Julie Ferreira's "Too many Crane
Island questions," July 15,1 I would like to
answer the questions in hopes that it helps the
community better understand why this devel-
opment opportunity is so important.
First, to respond to the challenge by Ms.
Ferreira and the Concerned Friends of Fernandina
that the transfer of units from PLM West (Long
Point) to Crane Island is possibly illegal; the answer
is that the Amelia Island Co. (AIC) is not transfer-
ring units. The word "transfer" is an incorrect char-.
acterization of the impending transaction between
Crane Island and AIC.
AIC is reducing its density at PLM West to
offset the density at Crane Island. Yes, it is legal,
and yes, the units, although currently not in use at
PLM West, could indeed be used there at another
time. Contrary to Ms. Ferreira's allegation that
there is no more developable land at Long
Point other than marshland and the golf course,
there is in fact vacant land on the south end of
Amelia Island that those units could be used on in
the future. .
By agreeing to reduce the 128 units in the PLM
West DRI, we are ensuring that with the addition of.
Crane Islandthere will be no net increase in density
within the Coastal High Hazard Zone. The legal
approach to this offset procedure has been con-
firmed by Nassau County Legal and Planning Staff
and the Florida Department of Community Affairs.
AIC has filed an amendment to the PLM West'
DRI that would permanently reduce its residential
entitlement there. The offset is indeed the same in
terms-of road.impacts and geographic impacts.
Intensive studies have been done to ensure that
there is sufficient capacity for traffic.
Archeological and biological surveys have deter-
mined that there are no significant cultural/environ-
mental resources that would be impacted by the
development of Crane Island at 169 units.
In fact, the state reinforced this determination by
refusing to-purchase Crane Island for an environ-

--a the answers

mental set-aside.
Ms. Ferreira also brings up the point of acreage
at Crane Island and why there have been various
numbers of acreage used. The answer is that there
are two ownership parcels at Crane Island that are
recorded in the public records of Nassau County.
One is for 113 (+ or -) acres, which includes all the
upland portion of the island, and the other for 94 (+
or -) acres, which is mostly marshland totaling
approximately 207 (+ or -) acres in the complete
Nassau County zoning does allow credit for wet-
lands in the calculation for development. Low densi-
ty residential allows for two units an acre, but the,
developer would only allow 169 units as opposed to
226, thus keeping the density even lower than what
could be allowed. While, the city of Fernandina
Beach does not allow the calculation of wetlands for
development, the city's low density residential clas-
sification allows for four units an acre, which is obvi-
ously much higher than the Crane Island develop-
ers plan.
Finally, Ms. Feireira questions the road capacity
during an emergency or evacuation as well as the
validity of the traffic study we presented at the June
6 Joint Local Planning Agency meeting.
First, the road capacity is sufficient for 169 units
at Crane Island. This is true during an evacuation or
on an everyday basis. During an evacuation, the
island is to evacuate in zones. Different parts of the
island leave at different times based on the strength
of a storm. In theory, this is to reduce bottlenecking
off the island. The south end uses the same route
that Old Towne does. AIA to the south of Amelia
Island Plantation is not a reliable evacuation route
with bridge closings, etc.
Crane Island will not greatly effect evacuation off
Amelia Island. For instance, in an eight-hour win-
dow with citizens evacuating at the appropriate time
Crane Island may only contribute a mere 21 cars per
hour to a small portion of the Amelia Island
Parkway. I think our efforts and concerns should

be where the traffic from Amelia Island, Yulee, the
West Side and Jacksonville converge and cause
major backups.
The traffic study conducted used the methodolo-
gy provided by the county and the Northeast
Florida Regional Planning Council. An application
for concurrency determination has been filed with
the county and is undergoing review by the council.
It most certainly pertains to Crane Island and has
nothing to do, whatsoever, with Long Point or the
The questions Ms. Ferreira raises are important
ones. There is a general misunderstanding within
the community when it comes to the development
of Crane Island, which is why we believe it is impor-
tant to answer questions where possible in an hon-
est fashion.
It is important to remember that Crane Island is
going to be developed. It is the nature of the devel-
opment that is up for debate. AIC is involved for a
long-term benefit, but it also benefits the communi-
ty to execute the plan this way. The addition of 169
units to the community will bring over $30 million in
tax revenue to the city and county combined over a
10-year period. That is money we will all benefit
from in our schools, roads, general fund, etc. year in
and year out.
The 169-unit plan also provides for community
access tq both Crane Island and the Amelia River
front as well as Royal Amelia, where AIC will add a
clubhouse and restaurant for public, club and resort
guest use. All of this comes with minimal impacts to
our already existing services and institutions.
This plan for the development of Crane Island
provides balance and revenue to Nassau County and
Fernandina Beach. Balance it seems to be the
best idea. We would like the opportunity to answer
other questions relating to Crane Island and will
gladly meet with individuals or groups of interested

A spirit-filled week

of blessings for youth

Pastor Frank Camarotti of

reflects on the busy activities
they have had recently. "Our
children went to camp at Lake
Yale the last week of.May. It was
a very spirit-filled week and
surely the Lord watched over
the children and counselors.
"Also the youth were at
camp the first week of June at
East Tennessee University.
They also had a spirit-filled
week with many blessings. We
are glad all those who went to
camp are back and safe.
Vacation Bible School was also
held the first week of June. It
was a great week of Bible study,
crafts and fellowship.
"As members of our church,
I know you are as thankful as I
am for the success of these min-
istries. Some took their vacation
time to participate in these min-
istries. Let us not forget if it
were not for the commitment of
God's servants, we would not
have these ministries.

Defining the battlefield is essential for victory

"In you, 0 Lord, I have taken
refuge; let me never be put to
shame. Rescue me and deliver me
in your righteousness; turn your
ear to me and save me. Be my rock
of refuge, to which I can always go;
give the command to save me, for
you are my rock and my fortress.
Deliver me, 0 God, from the. hand
of the wicked, from the grasp of evil
and cruel men." (Psalm 71:1-4),
Traveling throughout Italy one
can see many small cities and
towns built on top of strategically
chosen hillsides. These medieval
towns were often built right to
the edge of steep cliffs which
served as a natural defense.
Homes, towers and fortifications
were then added to secure an

even more
..To the peo-
ple of the
middle ages,
and I dare
say even
until the
birth of mod-
Conrad ern air war-
Sharps fare, these
.... fortified
towns were
PULPIT places of
NOTES refuge where
the citizens
could find protection from ene-
The Psalmist understood the

strategic advantage of high
ground, and with great spiritual
insight knew that his ultimate
safety, his "rock of refuge," to
which he could flee was God.
We see few fortifications in
our world today. In fact, the
metaphor may be lacking as we
know with modem technology
that nearly any fortified location
has some form of vulnerability
and certainly one set on a hill.
How then do we speak of the
power of God to rescue us "from
the grasp of evil and cruel men?"
Of course, I am speaking of a
power which supersedes even
that of our own national defense.
I am speaking of the power of
which Paul wrote: "For though we

live in the world, we do not wage
war as the world does. The
weapons we fight with are not the
weapons of the world. On the con-
trary, they have divine power to
diminish strongholds. We demolish
arguments and every pretension
that sets itself up against the
knowledge of God, and we take
captive every thought to make it
obedient to Christ." (2 Corinthians
I confess to you, as I believe
most pastors would, that I often
forget that the battle for this
world, for the hearts and minds
of humanity, is a spiritual battle
not a military or political battle.
The weapons we have at our dis-
posal are therefore quite differ-

ent. Prayer can overcome apathy
in church and culture; the Word
of God when interpreted and
obeyed in faith can overcome
arguments and political debate
which is contrary to God's
desires for humanity; and humili-
ty through service weakens pre-
tension of any cultural and intel-
lectual elitism that sets itself up
against the Word or Spirit of God.
What battles do you face?
What enemy has sent you scurry-
ing for the heights or caused you
to barricade yourself into an inef-
fective defensive posture?
Whoever your enemy and what-
ever form of attack launched
against you turn to Jesus
Christ, his Word and the power of

God's Holy Spirit. Don't be con-
fused on the field of battle it is
first and foremost spiritual in
nature. If you choose to use the
weapons of this world you will
lose. But no enemy has ever
stood to the power of the cross,
and the Word of God.
I'm not foolish enough to tell
you that there will be no casual-
ties in the battle for the heart of
our culture many faithful peo-
ple still have much to lose by the
standards of this world. But we
are not fighting for victory in this
world. Remember this always: It
is a spiritual battle!

Pitfalls of building your own home

Muhly grass OK near septic system

For the News-Leader

S ky-high Florida home
prices and shrinking
statewide inventory have
generated a booming
market for vacant residential
land, where more and more
Americans can custom design
and build the home of their
dreams in the. location they want.
Building your dream home is
certainly appealing, but the reali-
ties of selecting a site, financing
construction and securing a rep-
utable builder can be daunting.
If you are thinking about buy-
ing your own plot of land with the
intention of building a custom
home, consider the following:
Know the costs involved: In
most cases, building your own
home is more expensive than
buying an already-built home.
Construction experts recom-
mend spending no more than 35
percent of the completed home's
anticipated market value for a
vacant, finished city lot (one with
utility hookups, sidewalks and
other street improvements), and
no more than 25 percent for raw,
unfinished land. Contractor fees
can run about 15 percent of build-
ing costs, which average $120 to
$200 per square foot, depending
on the quality of the home.
Teardown or raw land? Raw
land generally makes more eco-
nomic sense, but in many desir-
able areas of Florida, vacant lots
are simply not available. If you
find a must-have ocean-view lot
with an old teardown on it, be
sure to factor in the costs of
demolishing it. Keep in mind that
most banks will lend up to 50 per-

cent on raw-land loans; with
approved plans some banks will
lend 80 percent of the appraised
finished value.
Investigate the history of
the land. Buying vacant land is
considered riskier than buying
developed property, which means
it is even more critical to have a
thorough title search completed
on the property. The search will
reveal problems with easements,
liens or other issues that may pre-
vent you from securing a free and
clear title. Also, bring in a plan-
ning expert early on to examine
the lofs topography and to identi-
fy problems that might make the
land too difficult and expensive to
build on.
Research zoning, land use
laws and other restrictions:
Once you've identified a specific
piece of property, make sure you
know how the lot is zoned and .
what is allowable on the land.
Depending on the zoning, your
dream house may not be permit-
ted in fact, the zoning will tell
you whether or not any kind of
structure is allowable. Utilities
are also a consideration in a -
vacant-land purchase: Check to
see if the site has municipal water
and sewage. If not, you could be
looking at thousands of additional
dollars in construction costs to
drill a well and install a septic sys-
tem. Finally, ask about land
access, which can help you avoid
buying land that you can't get to
because a road you assumed was
public is actually private access.
Assemble an experienced
real-estate team. As is the case
when buying an existing home,,
having a team of experienced pro-
fessionals representing your

interests is essential when buying
raw property. Using a real estate
professional who specializes in
land purchases makes things eas-
ier, but expect to pay higher com-
mission fees for the extra work
and time involved in a land deal.
Your team should also include a
real estate attorney who special-
izes in new-home contracts and
builder's contracts, especially
what the warranty will and won't
cover-in most cases, it covers
very little. Your real estate attor-
ney can also perform the essen-
tial title search early in the
process, to be sure the land you.
are planning to buy has a free and
clear title before you begin build-
Choose your builder care-
fully. Make sure the builder is
reputable. Remember that cheap-
er isn't necessarily better. You
need to understand that you will
get what you pay for in terms of
quality materials and service.
Research well: ask friends and
family, and visit your builder's
previous projects and talk to the
homeowners. Consider hiring a
general contractor or a project
manager to oversee the construc-
tion and to deal with your builder.
Check with the Better Business
Bureau and scroll the Internet to,
check for angry web sites created
by consumers who feel they were
cheated or mistreated by a con-
tractor or developer. See how
your builder has resolved prob-
lems and has stuck to completion
Finally, be prepared for
uncertainty. Construction rarely
is finished on time, so prepare a
contingency plan for where you
will live when your new house
isn't ready on time. Once the
home is finished, be ready for
imperfections and incomplete
jobs. Most new-home contracts
require the buyer to close the
transaction when the local gov-
ernmental authority has issued a
certificate of occupancy. Anything
not completed by the builder at
the time of closing is a "punch
list" item, which means you
should expect construction crews
on site well after you've moved in,
correcting the items on the list.

Q.I want to plant a couple of
.sago palms near my septic
system but I am concerned
about the roots growing into thi

system get? BC
A. My first thought was to
.*consider the environmen-
tal issue so I contacted the envi-
ronmental health department in
Nassau County regarding any
regulation addressing the dis-
tance trees or shrubs should be
planted from septic tanks. The
environmental health depart-
ment stated there is no regula-
tion regard

shrubs and

TALK woody
roots like
most of our woody ornamentals
but they are massive and will
continue to grow in length as
long as the palm is alive. It
might be best if you avoid plant-
ing shrubs and trees near the
septic tank area. However, if you
want something decorative near
the area you might consider
planting turfgrass and we have
plenty of options as long as the
area is in full sun.
You might also consider a
small ornamental grass like
muhly grass (Muhlenbergia
capillaris) since the roots are
generally only 6-8 inches in
length and should not interfere
with the operation of the septic
tank. Muhly grass is particularly)
attractive when it produces.

Dressed in jeans and sporting
large straw hats to keep off the br utal
July sun, we headed for the fields. It
was hard to know where to start .
when we reached the rows of blue-
berry laden bushes. A seasoned blue-
berry picker, even I was amazed at
the number and size of this year's
powdery blue orbs. Last year we
oohed and aahed over four or five
berries in a clump. This year the
clumps were mega clumps. The
branches were bending with the .
weight of 50 or more berries and with
only a slight shake our treasure fell
into our rapidly filling buckets. It did
not take long to harvest a significant

Moore in the

number of berries and we felt the
first drops of a summer rainstorm as
we headed back to the house to bag
some of our trophies.
We were rewarded for our hot'
steamy morning of blueberry picking
with a farm hand lunch served buffet
style. Unlike most field hands this
crowd got a glass of wine with their
delicious meal.
After lunch we headed to a neigh-
boring farm to pick corn and toma-
toes. We arrived at a huge farming,
complex that supplies regional gro-
cery stores with fresh produce. So
instead of trolling the aisles of Publix
or Harris Teeter we had the sweet
experience of picking our own veg-
etables. We pulled the ripest of the
tomatoes off their tangled vines. The
corn was young, ears small but edibly

sweet, so we filled our buckets and
headed back.
As the sun began to set, I headed
home on the back roads of Georgia
and northern Florida. I fantasized
about the goodies I was bringing
home and looking forward to a farm

li.P 63L,






My daughter final-
ly turned 10 this
week. I say final-
ly because for
years we had told her that
once she turned 10, then we
would let her get her ears .
pierced. Well, her day finally
came, and we took Peyton to
the' mall for her "procedure.",
To be honest with you, it was :
the first time I had ever seen
anyone get their ears
pierced in person, only see-
ing it previously in the
movies. What surprised me
about the whole thing was
how "surgical" it was..
Now, of course, I expect-
ed the tech to clean her ears
with alcohol, to use clean ,'
peel-packed instruments and
to wear gloves. What I did
not expect however, was the
one full-page, fine-print legal,
disclaimer that I would have
to, read and sign before they
would proceed. It reminded
me of what I go through
every day, getting my own
patients ready for surgery. I
must admit I scanned over it
pretty quickly and then
signed my name.
When you prepare your-
-self for surgery, there'
should always be .a discus-
sion between you and your
doctor regarding the proce-
dure itself and the risks of
the proposed surgical proce-
dure. Every procedure, no
matter how small it is, has
risks, and you should be
informed of these risks. In
addition to the risks, the
benefits, expected outcomes
and a typical postoperative
course of the planned sur-
gery should also be dis-
cussed, and your questions
should be individually
answered to your satisfac-
This "pre-op" discussion
should be between you and
your doctor, but may be
detailed by one of the physi-
cian's staff members such as
the physician's assistant, the
medical, assistant or the
nurse. In addition to dis-
cussing this matter personal-
ly with my patients, I also
like to give them something
that they can read, written in
my own words, which details
the procedure. That way
they can take their time
reading it, and let it all soak
in. They can also take this
material home with them,
read it again and then dis-
cuss it with other family,
Some surgical risks, such
as pain, bleeding, infection,
and complications of anes-
thesia, are foreseeable, and
despite all steps to try and
avoid them, these can still
occur. For example, you may
be given antibiotics before
your surgical procedure and
then continue them after-
wards for a few days or so,
but, despite this, an infection
still can occur. Fortunately,
our surgical infection rate
here at Baptist Medical
Center Nassau is quite low,
less than one percent.
Other unforeseen compli-,
cations of surgery may
occur and, despite the fact
that some of these risks are
very low, you would not be
properly informed of all of
your risks if your doctor
failed to mention these. We
are not trying to scare you,
but rather inform you that
there is always the potential
for complications, such as a
heart attack, stroke or death,.
to occur during or after your
surgery, no matter how
healthy you may appear. Pre-
operative testing (such as
EKG, labs and chest X-rays),
as well as a review of your

medical history and exami-
nation can be helpful in
determining if you are more
at risk than the general pop-
ulation for these complica-
tions. In addition, pre-opera-
tive clearance by your
medical physician may also
be required.
After spelling all of this
out; the patient is then asked

FWC seeks


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission is ready
for the next round of feedback on
the state's action plan for keeping
fish and wildlife populations
healthy. The second draft of the
strategy, a component of Florida's
Wildlife,Legacy Initiative, is on the
web site and ready for people to
review and make suggestions for
The goal of Florida's Wildlife
Legacy Initiative is to sustain all
fish and wildlife in Florida and
keep common species common.
Public participation is a crucial ele-
ment in developing the plan.
When the FWC posted the first
draft on-line in June, the web site
received more than 30,000 hits.
Staff hopes to maintain that level of
interest with the second draft.
"We know that great ideas can
come from the people of Florida --
people who know the areas they
live in and want to provide some-
thing wonderful for future gener-
ations," said Thomas Eason, ini-
tiative leader. "We have received an
abundance of high-quality ideas
and feedback, so far. Now we need
help with fine tuning the strategy."
The FWC has worked with a
broad cross-section of Floridians to
develop the wildlife action plan,
including professors, hunters,
anglers, conservationists, farmers,
ranchers and the general public.
Participants have proposed
diverse, and sometimes conflict-
ing, ideas for managing wildlife.
Eason views this as a positive part
of the process, which is why the
agency is producing the document
in an open forum.
"It is vital that people stay
involved in the process so we can
work through the challenges and
finish with a solid, well-balanced
plan that will serve Florida well,"
Eason said.
To review and comment on the
action plan, visit MyFWC.com and
click on "Wildlife Legacy." The sec-
ond draft of the strategy is available
for comment through Aug. 1.

Minimize impact with an ATV

With the number of all-terrain vehicle riders
climbing past 16 million nationally, the sport of ATV
riding is grabbing attention as land managers try to
balance its popularity with the nation's natural
"ATV riding can be a blast," said Patti Klein,
National Stewardship Coordinator for the Bureau of
Land Management. "But it can also be damaging to
public lands if not done responsibly. As land man-
agers, we encourage people to help protect the great
outdoors by riding responsibly and practicing outdoor
ethics, like those created by Tread Lightly!"
Tread Lightly!, a nonprofit organization that edu-
cates people to recreate responsibly, has issued some
practical tips on minimizing environmental impact
from ATVs.
*Stay only on roads, trails or other areas desig-
nated for ATV use.
*Try'to stay in the middle of the trail to avoid
widening it
Cross streams only at designated fording points,
where the trail crosses the stream. Approach the'
stream slowly, crossing at a 90-degree angle.
e On switchbacks, avoid roosting around the apex
of the turn when climbing or brake-sliding during
descent, both of which gouge the trail.
e On slick trails, moderate the throttle and use the
clutch to gain nia-ximuni traction with minimum
*Try to avoid muddy trails, save them for future
trips when they are dry.
Pack out what you pack in. Carry a trash bag on
your vehicle and pick up litter left by others.
*Following a ride, wash your ATV and support
vehicle to avoid spreading noxious weeds the next
time you ride.
Observe proper human waste disposal. Bury
your waste at least six inches deep and camouflage
the hole or pack out your waste.
*Take an ATV training course to maximize safe-
ty. Always wear a helmet, eye protection and other
safety gear.

Tread Lightly! encourages ATV riders to be
environmentally conscience.

To find places to ride, ATV enthusiasts should con-
tact local land managers. Tread Lightly! provides
additional tips and materials at www.treadlightly.org.
Tread Lightly! is a national nonprofit organization
whose mission is to empower generations to enjoy the
outdoors responsibly. Tread Lightly!'s strategic edu-
cational message, along with its training and restora-
tion initiatives are designed to instill an ethic'of
responsibility in outdoor enLhusiasts and the indus-
.tries that serve them. The program is hing-term in
scope with a goal to balance the needs of the people
who enjoy outdoor recreation with the needs of the
environment. Tread Lightly! offers unique programs
and services to help remedy current recreation
issues. In 2003; the federal government recognized
this by acknowledging Tread lightly! as a sole-source
service provider of education and training on how to

Big East scores football partnership

In a first-of-its-kind collabora-
lion among Division I conferences
and football bowl partners, the
Big East and Big 12 conferences
- along with the University of.
Notre Dame have together
forged a bowl partnership that will
assure both BCS conferences and.
Notre Dame's participation in the
Toyota Gator Bowl and Vitalis Sun
Bowl over a four-year period. The
agreement, which is pending the
approval of the Big 12 board of
directors; begins in the 2006 reg-
ular season.
"The Big East Conference has
a consistent and successful histo-
ry of being unique and entrepre-
neurial," stated Commissioner
Michael Tranghese. "This bowl
partnership concept is the latest
example of that innovation and
illustrates the efforts of our mem-.
bership to provide our fans with an
expanded postseason bowl menu.
This group of five Big East
Conference, Big 12 Conference,
University of Notre Dame, Toyota
Gator Bowl and Vitalis Sun Bowl
- had the foresight to realize that
we could accomplish more col-

lectively than we could as individ-
ual entities, a trend that I think is,
clearly good for the future of col-
lege athletics."
The Toyota Gator Bowl will
continue to be played on New
Year's Day each year in
Jacksonville, while the Vitalis Sun
Bowl will again be played on New
Year's Eve day in El Paso, Texas,
and will be televised by CBS.

first pick after the Big East's rep-
resentative to the Bowl
Championship Series has been
The Atlantic Coast Conference
will provide the opposition in the
Toyota Gator Bowl and the Pac-10
Conference will participate in the
Vitalis Sun Bowl.
Big East Conference member
schools have had a long and suc-
cessful history and tradition with
both bowls over the years, having

sent four separate teams to eight
Vitalis Sun Bowls (West Virginia in
1938, '49 and '87; Pittsburgh in '75
and '89; Cincinnati in 1947 and '51
and Louisville in 1958) and three
teams to a total of 10 Toyota Gator
Bowls (West Virginia in 1982, '89,
'97, '04 and '05; Pittsburgh in 1956,
'77 and '80 and Syracuse in 1966
and '96). In addition, both bowls
boast a lengthy and storied histo-
ry themselves.
The Vitalis Sun Bowl was first
played in 1935 and is the second
oldest bowl game. Only the Rose
Bowl, which started in 1902, is
older. The Toyota Gator Bowl is
the sixth oldest bowl, first played
in 1946.
The Big East Conference was
created in 1979, is a founding
member of the Bowl Champion-
ship Series and represents eight
Division I-A member institutions
for football including the Univer-
sity of Cincinnati, University of
Connecticut, University of Louis-
ville, University of Pittsburgh,
Rutgers University, University of
South Florida, Syracuse University
and West Virginia University.

said. "During an afternoon charter, we caught sev-
eral barracuda, eight king mackerel and two dol-
phin that weighed to 15 pounds. In fact, at one
point, the fish were so ferocious in their feeding
frenzy that two cudas almost jumped right in our
charter boat, the southern-style."
"We caught several nice barracuda and king
mackerel at BA reef recently slow trolling live min-
nows," Capt. Keith Edwards said. "Then we
dropped some live minnows down deep on the
ledge and landed a 35-pound cobia!"

Cox, but on this day the stallions

nothing to manage the horses

TRIPPIN' Continued from 1B
at each dock area and the Sea
Camp. On a hot day it's a good
idea to take refillable water bot-
tles or carry plenty to drink. As of
June, the park service had
already treated four cases of heat
exhaustion, Cox warned.
We headed for home on the
2:45 p.m. ferry after watching two
manatees loll about near the
Dungeness Dock and planned
our next day's outing Jekyll

Jekyll Island
A onetime winter retreat for
the nation's wealthiest families,
Jekyll is more developed than
Cumberland, but much less so'
than two other barrier islands of
note, Amelia and St. Simons.
Like Cumberland, it too was
almost lost as the Great
Depression, World War II, declin-
ing fortunes and a shrinking
labor pool combined to close the
exclusive Jekyll Island Club,
which had thrived from the late
1880s through the 1920s.
Thankfully, the island was pur-
chased by the state of Georgia in
1947, and the Jekyll Island
Authority was formed in 1950 to
oversee its operation and care. By
law only 35 percent of the island
may be developed.
Today it is an important nest-
ing site for sea turtles (204 laid
their eggs on Jekyll's beaches in
2003) and the Jekyll Island
Foundation is currently complet-
ing fund-raising for the Georgia
Sea Turtle Center, to be located
in the old 1903 power plant in the
historic district. The center will
be a rehabilitation facility for
injured or sick sea turtles res-
cued along Georgia's coast, as
well as educate visitors about dif-
ferent kinds of turtles and conser-
vation efforts.
The island also offers golf, a
wave park for kids and, of course,
the beach.
However, after our beach trek
at Cumberland and touring plenty
of ruins, we craved the sights -
and entry to the homes of
Jekyll's Millionaire's Village. This
240-acre compound contains the
former winter "cottages" of the
Morgans, Astors, Rockefellers,
Vanderbilts and Pulitzers, among
others. According to the Jekyll
Island Authority, it is one of the
largest ongoing restoration proj-
ects in the southeastern United
We opted for the 90-minute
"Passport to the Century" tram
tour that included admission to .
two homes on this day the
Moss and Goodyear cottages -

INFO Continud from 1B
Proceeds help support conservation and
stewardship of the island's natural and
cultural resources.
A welcome center is located along the
causeway to the island and is a good
source of information about tours, accom-
modations, restaurants, shopping and
other attractions.
For more information, call toll free at
877-453-5955. Call the Jekyll Island -'
History Center for tour information at
(912) 635-4036.
Zoo facts
Admission to the Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens, 370 Zoo Parkway, is $9.50 for adults, $8
for seniors and $6.50 for children ages 3-12.
Children 2 and under are free. Train passes are $4
for adults, $2 for children ages 3-12, $3.50 for adult
members of the zoo and $1.50 for member chil-

and seemed a bargain at only $15
per person.
Furnished with antiques from
the island's museum, it is remark-
able the cottages stand at all. For
years they were left to the ele-
ments and marauders, who snuck
onto the island by boat before the
causeway was built and ran-
sacked the contents and even
held picnics inside, our guide
informed us. While some rooms
on the upper stories remain
unsafe for human traffic, the
main floors are restored in detail,
including recreations of the origi-
nal wallpaper in the Goodyear
But my favorite on the intense-
ly hot June day we visited was
Crane Cottage. Arguably the
most ostentatious of the lot (it is
said owner Richard T. Crane Jr.
couldn't resist indulging his love
of Tuscan architecture and went
well over the building cap
imposed on the club's members),
it also is the most soothing, with
long reflecting pools and cooling
fountains. Today it is the intimate
sister inn to the Victorian-style
Jekyll Island Club Hotel.
Happily settled in the
Courtyard at Crane restaurant
beneath a ceiling fan (and sur-
rounded by wrought iron accents
and cooling stone) we enjoyed
perfectly chilled glasses of wine,
a gooey Buffalo cheese and beef-
steak tomato sandwich and light-
ly grilled tuna on a roll with
homemade tartar sauce. This
must be what heaven is like, I
thought to myself.
In fact, the club members did-
n't forget their devotions while
whiling away the winter months.
The small wooden church they
built stands today as a testament

Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and until 6 p.m.
on Saturday, Sundays and holidays from March 6
to Sept. 6.
The zoo is a non-profit organization and accred-
ited member of the American Zoo and Aquarium.
For more information, log on to www.jacksonville-

to their priorities. But like every-
thing else in the village, it too
holds hints of the wealth behind
its construction, namely a signed
Tiffany stained glass window.
While vandals ransacked the sur-
rounding homes, they never
touched the church and it
remains as it was more than 100
years ago.
Refreshed in body and spirit,
we decided to call it a day and
rest up for the next adventure.

Keeping with our theme of
day trips that offer maximum out-
door exposure, beautiful sights,
plenty of room to roam and mini-
mal road time, we headed south
to the Jacksonville Zoo and
Located on 89 acres, including
1,400 feet of river frontage, the
zoo was founded in 1914 and
acquired its current property at
370 Zoo Parkway in 1924.
Today, it ishome to more than
2,000 rare and exotic animals in
eight major exhibits that span the
world's ecosystems.
Having recently adopted a
dusky conure (a small South
American parrot), Joe and I have
a newfound appreciation for birds
and headed straight for the Birds
of the Rift Valley aviary. Here visi-
tors can walk among free-flying
birds of the wilds of East Africa.
The two-story structure encom-
passes 9,000 feet of space and
affords opportunities for close-up
views of 72 birds from 20 differ-
ent species.
For a really heart-warming
experience, spend a dollar for a
small cup of sugar water and feed
the lorikeets at the Australian
Adventure exhibit. These small

parrots are as friendly as they are
beautiful and on a slow day flock
to visitors' outstretched hands.
(On a busy day, they are some-
times so well fed by the time
afternoon rolls around that they
sit lazily on the tree branches, not
inclined to budge.)
The zoo is also home to a
number of new young charges,
including a baby giraffe born to
Zawadi, a 10-year-old female, and
Duke, a 7-year-old male, on
March 28. They can be seen at
the new Giraffe Overlook, where
visitors can gain a different per-
spective on these gentle giants
(they can reach heights of 18
feet) from an elevated platform.
Nearby is Savanna Blooms,
the zoo's first themed botanical
garden. We enjoyed wandering
its paths and reading the names
of the different plants, as well as
taking a welcome break on its
shaded benches. The garden's
subtle colors are easy on the eyes
on a searing hot day, much like, I
imagined, the African Savanna it
seeks to replicate.
Of course, how could we visit
the local zoo and not see the Wild
Florida exhibit? New there are
two young Florida panthers, res-
cued by the zoo after being aban-
doned by their mother in the
northern part of the Florida
Panther National Wildlife Refuge.
According to a zoo press release,
they could eventually become
part of a captive breeding pro-
gram aimed at boosting the
endangered specie's numbers.
Our legs tired and minds full,
we hopped in the car and made
our way home, just a short drive
