Arts center dream dies


BE\ EARLY MILLER
News-Leader
The dream of creating an
Amelia Arts Centre in a church
building downtown has ended.
Tom Henderson, president of
the center's board of directors,
has announced that it was unsuc-
cessful in a final effort to purchase
the First Baptist Church property
at 416 Alachua St.


"After the arts center fell short
of meeting its $2.4 million goal for
total pledges and donations set for
June 30 by a previous agreement,
the church and the center.
explored other means of closing
the gap between the contract price
and the total resources includ-
ing bank credit available to the
center," Henderson said.
"We did everything we pru-
dently could to bridge the gap. and


the Baptists made an earnest and
generous effort to help. But, in
the end, the gap was just too great
to close."
The arts center has initiated
steps to dissolve as a corporation,
and as previously promised, it has
released donors from pledges of
future financial support. The cen-
ter will soon refund the cash dona-
tions it had already received,
Henderson said.


"We greatly appreciate the
Baptists' cooperation, their hospi-
tality and the confidence they
placed in us. And we are grateful
for the generous and dedicated
support we received from more
than 200 donors and volunteers.
We are terribly sorry that all this
effort and good will could not have
come to a positive end," he said.

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News Leader
Thirty years ago, the future
looked dim for a young woman
from Spanish Harlem.
In mere seconds, her life as a
classically trained dancer, per-
forming in Broadway musicals,
abruptly ended.
After an 18-wheeler ran over
the rear of her car, Raven, as she
is known professionally, had to
accept that she would no longer
be able to dance.
Although everyone walked
away from the accident. "I was
the one who ran into the life-
altering changes," she said.
Raven went from dancing in
commercials and performing on
stage in eight shows per week to
"a real two-year struggle with
depression,",-he said.
- "Athletes,.go thr.Qugh the
same type of depression." after
they leave sports. "You have to
discover who you are. when
you're not in front of an audi-
ence."
But the woman, whose
dreams plummeted at the height
of her career, rediscovered
herself in front of a different
audience when someone told
her. "You should consider mod-
eling."
Today, with a high-profile
fashion industry and television
career behind her. Raven
continues to have exciting
prospects ahead since embark-
ing on a new life here in
Fernandina Beach.

A developer of large-scale com-
munities said he wants to build a
"destination" on the West Side of
Nassau County.
Three Rivers is a proposed
3,200-home "village" to be located
on 1.641 acres about two miles
west of 1-95. south of AlA and west
of Edwards Road.
Full build-out would not be until
2021, but it's possible more than
7,000 people could eventually call
Three Rivers home more people
than currently live Hilliard and
Callahan combined.
Plans include upper-scale
homes, an age-limited adult com-
munity, a riverfront "fishing vil-
lage" plus more affordable town
homes and condominiums possi-
bly starting as low as $150,000.
And the project's developer.
Mark Ambach of Ambach
Communities in PonteVedra, said
Wednesday he wants Three Rivers
to be a destination for everyone in
Nassau County.


The project will include easy
public access off A1A to equestri-
an and biking trails, a waterfront
promenade on the Nassau River,
shopping centers and restattrants,
plus access to a 12.000-acre state
park.
"We're trying to create an inte-
grated community a place-
maker for Nassau County west of
I-95,"'.Ambach said. "A destination
for all residents to utilize and par-
ticipate in."
Ambach has worked on several
large-scale "master plan" develop-
ments during his 15 years with
Arvida (now known as St. Joe
Towns and Resorts), one of the
state's largest real estate compa-
nies and developers of St. Johns
Golf and Country Club in
Jacksonville and Victoria Park in
Deland. :
Ambach said the heart ofThree

The drug Rachel Miner was

Rachel Miner, 19, was arrested
for delivery of a controlled sub-

gave Xanax, an anti-anxiety med-
ication, to her husband.
An autopsy ruled "multiple drug
toxicity" as the official cause of
Richard Miner's death, but accord-

Schools'


tax rate


to drop

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Nassau County School Board
members voted Monday for a lower
advalorem tax rate. but not enough
for one board member.
The rate was tentatively set for
8.081 mills, down from last year's
rate of 8.313.
That's because the county's
assessed property values have
risen by nearly 81 billion from last
year, and under its proposed rate
the school board will collect an esti-
mated $48.2 million, up from the
$41.3 million last year.
School board member Janet
,Adkins proposed leaving a supple-
mentary discretionary millage at
0.112 instead of raising it to the
0.189 currently being advertised.
.Thatwould have decreased the pro-
posed rate to 8.004 mills.
"At some point, government
needs to learn to live within our
means," Adkins said. "... I don't
understand how (how much money i
we have) is never enough."
"In order to fund some of the
things we planned to do for the dis-
trict, we would need to levy the full
millage," schools Superintendent
John Ruis said.
Ruis pointed to class size-reduc-
tion requirements and higher
teacher salaries as reasons for set-
ting the village rate at 8.081. The
current proposed millage is the
maximum the board can levy by
law.
A rate of 8.081 set by the board
will mean that the board will get
$8.081 for every $1,000 of taxable
property. A homeowner with a
house assessed at $200,000 will pay
$1,414.18 to county schools after
the $25,000 homestead exemption,

Women struggle with body image


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader


The suggestion that Raven, a 5-
foot, 9 1/2-inch tall Alvin Alley
trained Broadway dancer should
take up modeling came with a piece
of advice. "Lose thirty pounds."
That same expectation, that she
change her body image to fit
America's fashion industry stan-
dards, would follow Raven through-
out her 10-year career.
Eventually she
defied the indus-
try, refusing to
change herself
physically to be
accepted. "As
soon as I stopped
modeling, I cut off ,
my hair," the Raven
"kinky" hair she
had chemically
straightened to keep working as a
model.
Studies show that women
around the world struggle to accept
themselves amidst images in popu-
lar culture that rigidly define beau-
ty.
According to "The Real Truth
About Beauty: A Global Report,"
released in September 2004, 75 per-
cent of women surveyed want to
see more diversity in beauty images,
including women of different
shapes, sizes and ages.
'The limiting idea of beauty and
the limiting of what constitutes the
ideal of beauty has caused consid-
erable anguish to women young
and old who strive to find in
themselves the means to meet those
aesthetic values which have come to
make up what we regard as beauti-


Definingbeauty
Only 2 percent of women around the world choose "beauti-
ful," fewer than choose "attractive" (9 percent), "feminine" (8
percent), "good-looking" (7 percent) or "cute" (7 percent), to
describe their looks.
Women are most comfortable using the words "natural" (31
percent) or "average" (29 percent) to describe their looks.

ful," wrote Dr. Susie Orbach of the
London School of Economics.
"There has been an insidious
narrowing of the beauty aesthetic to
a limited physical type thin, tall
- which inevitably excludes mil-
lions and millions of women," said
Orbach in her foreword to the
report, a 10-country survey of 3,200
women, aged 18 to 64, commis-
sioned by the soap company, Dove.
"When I started modeling in the
'80s, they weren't using any, dark
women at all," Raven said, adding
that all the New York modeling
agencies turned her down. "They
were not hiring any women of
color."
So she left the States., "In
Germany they loved me. They were
so happy to see me."
When she returned to the U.S.


with a portfolio of her work through-
out Europe, she quickly received
offers to do fashion shows in major
cities with prominent designers.
But acceptance came with a
price.
"In the beginning, when I first
started modeling, I did spend a lot
of time in the mirror," Raven said.
"Your day is predicated on whether
you have a zit They beat you down
on a regular basis."
'The default definition of beauty
has shriveled pitifully" since 1913,
when Webster's dictionary defined
beauty as "properties pleasing the
eye, the ear, the intellect, the aes-
thetic faculty or the moral sense,"
said Harvard University's Nancy
Etcoff, who also authored a fore-
word for "The Truth" study.
"The contributions of the ear,


the intellect, the broader aesthetic
faculty or the moral sensibilities are
gone," she wrote, adding, "Beauty is
diverse and the human eye thrills to
new pleasures and fresh sources of
inspiration. Ethereal weightlessness
and Nordic features are not its only
incarnation."
To compete with other models,
Raven lost a dramatic amount of
weight. Her mother threatened to
move in with her to make her eat "I
was so skinny, a size 4," she said.
In Europe, "weight is wealth.
You have enough money to eat,"
Raven said. "As soon as you go out-
side of this country, they love big
women."
"The Real Truth" report found
that almost half of all women (47
percent) rate their body weight as
"too high." The U.S. ranked highest
with 60 percent of women, followed
by Great Britain (57 percent) and
Canada (54 percent), rating their
body weight as "too high."
In addition to losing weight,
Raven felt pressure to "fix" her nose.
"I love my nose," she said. "I
fought to not change my nose."
And then she came to a critical
turning point in her modeling
career. "I realized if I was going to
let them change me from one book-
ing to the next, I'd be a crazy per-
son."
That realization was followed by
a pivotal decision.
"I was only going to work for
clients who accepted me." Clients
then had to agree to her standards.
"Here are my measurements,"
she told them, "and they're not
going to. change between now and
next week."

Insurance rates soar



in wake of hurricanes


N assau County has
dodged the recent wave
of hurricanes, but resi-
dents will not evade the
insurance increases spawned by
the storms' destruction.
There are reports of increas-
es up to 25 percent in the cost
of homeowners' coverage this
year. Though Nassau County has
not truly felt the wrath of a
hurricane since Dora in 1964,
the area falls under the
Florida region with regard to
insurance.
And many parts of Florida
seem to be precisely lined up in
the scope of hurricanes.
Just weeks ago, another
* major hurricane took its toll on
the Florida Panhandle, sacking
parts of Navarre, Destin and
Milton. Many homeowners in
that area had just recovered from
the wreckage of Hurricane Ivan
last September when Dennis
came ashore.
Some still had blue tarps
protecting their rooftops from
leaks. Others still lived in tiny
trailers provided by FEMA, the
Federal Emergency
"Management Association.
Another storm, and another
cleanup -'and another disrup-
tion in their lives.
The higher insurance costs
across the state as well as
fears of even more hurricanes -
have prompted some Florida res-'
idents to pack their bags. This
reportedly includes some of the
elderly, who feel they cannot
endure further hardships, both
in their lifestyles as they rebuild,
and in their pocketbooks.
At least four smallerinsur-,.

.*** Each has
STEVE'S reportedly
MIR1ET begun cancel-
ing some poli-
PLACE cies, accord-
ing to
insurance agents. A few of the
companies have provided cover-
age in the state for more than
two decades.
Like some of the elderly resi-
dents who are leaving the state,
these companies are saying
enough is enough.
Other companies are staying
put, but will charge more for cov-
erage. This is especially true in
coastal areas, such as Amelia
Island. Hence, the double-digit
increases in insurance premi-
ums.
Local residents have said the
companies have a blunt reply to,
questions about the policy
increases: Like it, or lose cover-
age. Anyone losing coverage,
whether from a problem with an
existing company or from a com-
pany no longer writing policies in
Florida, faces, greater costs and
uncertainty.
Insurance agents are saying
such people will probably not
find an A-rated company to .,


insure them. A lower-rated com-
pany might insure them'- but at
steep premiums.
The result will be higher
rates overall, with more home-
owners forced into the high-
priced and overloaded state
insurance pool. Mobile homes
will be impacted to even a
greater degree.
Many insurance companies
have taken huge losses from cov-
erage of mobile homes, which
have been decimated in big
storms. One in five residents in
Florida lives in a mobile home.
Florida has had more than its
share of hurricane damage. The
state has accounted for about
half of all the insurance losses
due to hurricanes of all 50
states.
Texas and Louisiana are sec-
ond and third respectively in
terms of losses.
So insurance coverage will
continue to be tricky in Florida.
After Hurricane Andrew in the
early 1990s, various insurers
completely pulled out of Florida.
While most have returned, they
have increased their rates and
deductibles. and reduced what
they cover.
Some homeowners in high-
risk areas have to buy separate
hurricane or windstorm insur-
ance on top of their regular
policies. Flood insurance is yet
another matter.
Also. with property price val-
ues soaring in the current real-
estate boom, many people may
either be underinsured, or ,
unable to buy another home in
their same area if a storm wipes
them out. '
No, it is not a pretty picture.
But neither is a hurricane.

He took his future into his


own hands on the island


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader
Bill Mooney knew early on that
his future lay in two. hands -.his
own.
He grew up in Brooklyn, decid-
ed he wanted to learn to work with
his hands and, after graduating
from high school, he enrolled in
the New York City Carpenters
Apprenticeship College, the
largest institution of its kind in the
United States. Mooney graduated
first in his class and was appoint-
ed an. instructor at the college in
the fall, where he taught for four
hours a night, two nights weekk;
for six semesters.
"The difference between there
and the island is that kids (and
many adults) here on the island
don't know there's more to car-
pentry than framing a house,"
Mooney says. "There's a real need
for educating kids in the manual
arts here, where carpentry skills
are very basic. It will be good for
their future and for the future of
the community, too."
Nlooney came to Amelia Island
as a member of a crew sent down
from New York to work on con-
struction of The Ritz-Carlton.
Amelia Island. He "retired" from
that job in 1992 to go out on hk
own on Amelia Island.
"Relocation came naturally,
because I realized I had fallen in
love with the island and wanted
to stay." he says.'At that time, you
could get to anywhere on the
island in 10 minutes. You can't
even get out of an elevator in New
York in 10 minutes. You can'tflag
a cab in 10 minutes, either. The
atmosphere here was different.
The beaches here are not crowd-
ed'(by comparison.) Here, you get
service with a smile. It's very dif-
ferent here."
"And there were 30,000 car-
penters in New York. Here there

was a handful. At 24; 1 had reached
my peak in New York. And here.
I decided, no one controls my
'peak,'" Mooney says. "At 24 in
New York, I made $57 an hour-
and I couldn't find a job here for
$15."
So he built his shop on the
island in 1992, and moved from
the 2.000 square feet of space and

showrooms upstairs and 13
employees now.
In 1995. he decided to go into
cabinetry full time, and last year
was his first year that Mooney's
Custom Woodworks did more
than S1 million in sales, he says.
"The million just happened. It all
kind of worked for me," Mooney
says, explaining that he views the
company's product as more than
just practical. "Our work is art
work--'from design, specializing
in color and style, to construction,"
Mooney says.'
In the beginning, he created
projects from his own plans, but


soon recognized that it would be
easier to put the plans together
with projects, he says. He does all
the designs French, traditional,
country, European, modern- "with
the customer's input," he hastens
to add.
"Everything here is made by
hand and basic machinery. We do
no computerized manufacturing.
We use only manual labor
machines, imagination and crafts-
manship," he says. He also does
not advertise and he doesn't solic-
it business. "I depend on a referral
base of satisfied customers,"
Mooney says.
S"The longer you're in business,
the easier it is."
Now 33, Mooney says he has
never looked back except for
one thing: to somehow find people
in the community interested in
providing a facility for educating
young (aind not so young) Nassau
County people interested in work-
ing with their hands. And judging
from hi- experience, he knows
how valuable that is. ,
Mooney's hopes are in the
process of being fulfilled. Don
Hughes, director of the Betty P.
Cook Center of FCCJ says the
Lewis "Red" Bean Nassau Career
Technical Center is scheduled to
open in August 2006 "and if Bill
Mooney wants to teach there, well
be glad to give him that opporfu-
nity." Huighes said.
"'The sooner the better."
Mooney says of that opportunity.
"And I want to teach those who
come that their futures lie in their
own two hands and to give
them the skills and the confidence
that will make them know that's
true," he says.

If you raise a child
to be the best he or she can be,
Society will continue to water them


like a cherry tree.
But if you do drugs, your little girl
will definitely be with the Thugs.
If you see one do it,
You will be guided too.
Next drop out of school,
You don't know the way of the world.
Please stop. Look, look at your little girl.
Don't raise her up to be a call girl.
She can be a lawyer to jump hurdles,
A doctor to get you off the gurney.
Up the street without a paddle,
Just living in Satan's shadow.
The drugs already had your little girls
full of smoke;
Little boys wait to take a toke.
I caught the same boat,
If you trust in Jesus,
He will be no joke,
Take it from the old folks.

New urgent care center planned in O'Neil


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader

A new $10 million urgent care
and occupational medicine center is
set to open in O'Neil next summer.
Dr. Daniel Matricia, an emer-
gency care physician who lives in
Fernandina Beach and runs the
Camden Medical Center in Georgia,
will head Amelia Medical Park.
"We were looking for a location
that could serve the island" as well
as the growing communities along
A1A east and west of 1-95, said
Matricia.
The center will be located in
three buildings at the corner of A1A
and Old Church Road and will offer
care for minor emergencies such as
lacerations, fractures and sprains
as well as occupational medicine
for work-related injuries, including
physical therapy, said Matricia.
"If we are going to do occupa-
tional medicine, we have to have
physical therapy with it," said
Matricia.
Jim Mayo, director of Baptist
Medical Center Nassau, said he
would welcome an urgent care cen-
ter because they help alleviate the
workload in the hospital's emer-
gency room.
"They're going to take relative-


ly minor things," he said. "An
urgent care center treats people
conveniently but primarily com-
petes with private physicians'
offices. ... I do not anticipate it
would have a negative impact" on
hospital revenues or services.
Mayo added, "We typically see
less urgent cases" when urgent care
centers (usually open beyond nor-
mal office hours) are closed.
Matricia said his center will like-
ly operate on 12-hour workdays. He
also is in contract talks with anoth-
er local doctor who has announced
plans to open a same-day surgery
center in Yulee in the next year and
a half.
Dr. Jesse Greenblum, an obste-
trician and gynecologist, said his
facility is meant to complement
Baptist Medical Center Nassau and
give patients who currently travel to
Jacksonville and southeast Georgia
for procedures such as colono-
scopies another alternative.
He has tentatively partnered
with Neuterra in Kansas, Miss.,
which runs more than 40 such cen-
ters nationwide through majority
physician ownership.
Neuterra would oversee admin-
istration of the center, handling the
day-to-day problems and staffing,
said Greenblum, but it would be 80

Lt. Col. Sue Matricia, U.S. Army Reserve, and Brig. Gen. Terry Nesbitt, Georgia Army National
Guard, congratulate Dr. Daniel Matricia, center, at his recent promotion to colonel. Col.
Matricia of Fernandina Beach will soon deploy to Kosovo as part of the medical support for UN
operations. Sue Matricia, his wife, is with the Combat Support Hospital in Jacksonville and has
not been called for deployment at this time.


percent "doctor directed."
If contract talks are successful,
the centers could be located togeth-
er, said Matricia.
The Amelia Medical Park is a
joint project with Wise Inc. of
Muncie, Ind., a developer of medical


centers nationwide. The ground-
breaking is expected within the next
few months, depending on the per-
mitting process, said Matricia.
Unfortunately, "I'll miss my own
groundbreaking," he added.

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3,2005/NEWS-LEADER


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


He loved the Army
Re: "Innocent until proven
guilty," July 27.
I guess if people feel they need
to correct something, it's good to
write a reply in the local newspaper,
but the only thing I can see wrong
is it seems to be one-sided. I, Ricky
Miner Jr.'s father, haven't said any-
thing. But now that someone who
I can really say doesn't know has
told all of my neighbors and friends
about my son's brig time, which
was a very private time for me and
my family, I can fill in the blanks to
my son's three and a half year mar-
riage.
I was there when he graduated
from boot camp. He hugged my
neck, but I was not the person he
wanted there. He couldn't see that
person because she wasn't there. I
was there when he came home for
a two-week leave from Iraq, again
he hugged my neck, but again the
only women he hugged were my
wife, my sisters, my mother and
his daughter. I was there when he
finally put his boots on American
soil, "Home for Good from the
Rac," the signs said. He was very
glad to see his brother Steven and
me. I remember he looked at the
weapon he had got before board-
ing the 20-hour flight, his finger
was near the trigger and shaking.
He wanted to give that gun back so
he could go to his home on base.
He looked around and again his


brother and my neck was all there
was in North Carolina.
So thank you for keeping the
story open, there are still a lot of
questions needing to be asked. In
closing, the one thing I can say
truthfully and with no doubt is that
Richard D. Miner Jr. loved the
Army.

Legal advice
We all cringed when we saw
the TV reports of a Nassau County
sheriff's employee creating a
drunken disturbance in Atlantic
Beach ("Sheriff fires legal adviser
after her arrest," July 29). The
Jacksonville newspaper was even
less kind and more graphic. But
Ms. Taylor has apparently paid for
her indiscretion with her job.
One of the questions that
remains is why on Earth the sher-
iff's office was providing her with
a car (and gas) so she could com-
mute from Duval County? I have no
problem with tactical officers living
in the county having take-home
cars because they are on-call and
properly equipped to respond to
emergencies.
But a staffer? Out of county? In
these days of pinching every coun-
ty dollar? I suppose it was a nego-
tiated perk necessary to gain her
services. And just look what we
got for our money. Thank God she


wasn't allowed to drive that night!
What if she had killed someone
with our car?
I think this policy demands a
hard look in the future.

A nice criminal
Has integrity and moral char-
acter all but disappeared in this
county? Since when does being "a
nice lady" make you less of a crim-
inal? This is a felony, not just sneak-
ing flowers from your neighbor's
garden! A criminal is a criminal it
doesn't matter how nice they are!
A trusted county employee,
Julie Mixon, stole nearly a million
dollars from her neighbors yet a
number of people expect every-
one to show empathy. After all, she
was "a nice lady" who helped her
friends with some of the money,
except what she lost to some casi-
nos. Just how much did she squan-
der on gambling trips and how
much did she give to her friends?
What kind of people are these
friends who accepted amounts of
money from a person in Ms.
Mixon's income bracket? Did they
honestly think she found it in the
cabbage patch? Were there no
questions asked, can these friends
sleep at night?
The fact that this was neither
prevented nor discovered by (for-
mer clerk of court Chip) Oxley or

the auditors is at least stupidity.
The auditors were paid over
$500,000 to certify the accounts,
and they missed hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars every year. I won-
der if they missed any other dis-
crepancies? They should pay all of
the costs associated with a proper
audit and the investigation into this
matter. Mr. Oxley should be held
liable for failing to exercise due
diligence. As clerk of the court, he
was personally responsible for the
collection, protection and disbursal
of the money passing through his
office.
This was public money, money
that belonged to the citizens of
Nassau County. Every legal
attempt must be made to recover
this money, and if it is determined
that anyone knowingly accepted
stolen money they must be prose-
cuted.

out and sod put in. The idea was so
well intentioned but ill conceived as
they chose mid-August, in the
midst of a drought with no irriga-
tion in those areas. The sod imme-
diately died leaving nothing but
weeds, weeds and more weeds.
I am told that the responsibili-
ty for this road maintenance falls to
the state DOT. But, surely, the city
of Fernandina has enough clout to
see that that strip is mowed more
often. That's the first step. Of
course, it would be wonderful to go
the next step and actually try to
beautify the medians. I can dream,
can't I? But, oh yes, this is the same
community that has spent years
talking about beautification of the

Recycling
As a new resident of Amelia
Island I cannot understand why
such an environmentally aware
community barely recycles. Is it a
money issue? An inconvenience
issue? I feel like I've gone back in
time.
Is there anything I can do to
help start a curbside pickup recy-
cling program, or at the very least
collect more items at the Nassau
recycling centers like plastic, card-
board, junk mail and tin? I have a
very difficult time adding items
(that can easily be recycled) to
landfill, so I'll be saving my recy-
cling and making the trek to
Jacksonville to recycle. I'm sure
not many people are willing to do
this, but I'm sure they'd have. no
problem recycling if it was simple.
I'm willing to bet the majority
doesn't even recycle aluminum,
newspaper and glass at the recy-
'lifig centers because' it i- inedv'
vetieint.
I have contacted all of the local
trash companies and talked to sev-
eral people in Nassau county, but
no one can tell me why recycling is
so minimal here. Any suggestions
would be appreciated.

Keeping our


A schools
Nassau County Commissioners approved last
week a $3,726 school fee for each new home built
in the county, beginning Aug. 24.
We applaud them for approving a school impact
fee.
As a new school year begins Friday, we are
reminded of how important our educational sys-
tem is to our economy, our lifestyle and to the
future opportunities of all our citizens.
We are fortunate to have an 'A' school system in
Nassau County, as rated by the state based on
annual tests of our students. Our top-grade school
district was achieved thanks to the hard work of
administrators, principals, teachers and other
employees who have done so much to help our
children-succeed.
As our population grows, we must work ever
harder to keep our good grades. That's why the
school fee is so important newcomers will pay
their fair share to pay for the new schools and facil-
ities that a growing student population will require.
There was only token opposition to the fee,
partly because the school district worked with
developers,,builders and others over a two-year .,,.
pgglgaqljinsg,tpW,th ;pJleqgtation of the fee.
There's also greater recognition nowAthat-good .,,
schools are a factor in attracting growth. Mark
Ambach, who plans to develop a new community
called Three Rivers west of 1-95, told us last week
that our schools are one of the primary reasons he
wanted to locate his project here.
Good schools are a drawing card. We are proud
of our 'A' schools. School and county officials
deserve credit for working to maintain our good
report card.


COMMUNITY THANKS

Marching forward
The recent theft of West Nassau High School
Band equipment trailer will not prevent the band
from continuing its recent award-winning trend in
performance and competition. According to band
boosters president Marty Amos it would take $5,000
to replace the trailer and our first performance will
occur in August. That's the bad news!
Now the good news! The band will persevere
thanks to the gracious gift of a new and larger trail-
er from Joe and Connie Ederifield. Long-time
Callahan residents, owners of AJ Welding & Repair,
Inc., and most of all, grandparents of 10 and par-
ents of recent Warrior graduate, Iraqi war veteran and
active duty soldier Joey, and senior honors student.
Ashley, they clearly demonstrate the best of the best
in our community. Even the name of their business
reflects the love for their own children A for
Ashley, J for Joey.
Joe and Connie have a history of contributing
both monetarily and with their time. You might have,
seen them gathering food for the needy, eyeglasses
for the Lions Club, serving veterans dinner, or at a
variety of other community or school functions.
Ashley has continued the best of the best with her
frequent volunteering.
If you have been blessed in knowing them, as my
family and I are, you might have experienced them
bringing food to your door at your mother's passing
or driving to South Carolina at a moments notice, U-
Haul in tow, to pick up your family and belongings
after being involved in a major accident on 1-95.,
Their own children did not participate long term in
band, yet they.know many parents credit the band
for its positive contributions to our children and
community.
Connie has worked in the school system for many
years and is currently a paraprofessional at Callahan
Middle School helping children with special needs.
Joe, with the loving support of Connie, has built a suc-
cessful welding business, which provides employ-
ment for five families. Joe and Connie represent the
best as kids too! Joe set his mom up with her
Callahan home and jumps right on it when she is in
need. Connie frequently visits her mom in central
Florida with her helping hand.
The growing Warrior Marching Band, under the
able and award winning leadership of Don Reynolds,
Paul Arnold, and Drum Major Heather Clayton,
would be out of step without the contributions of
many caring band parents and our best of the best
neighbors, Joe and Connie.

Mearns should be held accountable


H ow would you like to be City Manager Bob
Mearns right about now? The drumbeat
for resignation seems to grow louder each
day, and its origins are many and varied.
Indeed, one cannot help but sense a general disaf-
fection with the city manager, as more and more
people are willing to give voice to it.
Supporters of Mr. Mearns should take heart,
however, for there is no similar drumbeat and no
like sense of disaffection coming from the group
that matters most, the Fernandina Beach city com-
mission.
I'm not sure what to make of the commission's
silence. Are they supportive of the city manager, or
do they say nothing in order to convey displeasure?
Do they hope the issues will simply resolve them-
selves, or do they think the naysayers make much
ado about nothing? It's difficult to tell, and, at least
in my opinion, that's the problem.
This air of uncertainty can be debilitating for a
community, and the commission has the duty to
alleviate it by scheduling a special meeting with one
agenda item, an objective, collective and public cri-
tique of Mr. Mearns' job performance.
The kind of evaluation proposed in the preceding
paragraph is not just the right thing to do, but is
demanded by the charter. Consider...
Section 25 of the charter reads, "The city com-
mission shall appoint a city manager who shall be
the administrative head of the municipal govern-
ment under the direction and supervision of the city
commission, and shall hold office at the pleasure of
the city commission."
Section 29 reads, "The city manager shall be
responsible to the city commission for the proper
administration of all affairs of the city."
It is clear, at least to me, that the charter envi-
sions the city commission directing and supervising
the city manager, and holding him responsible for
carrying out the day-to-day operations of the city.
Implicit in that charter obligation, then, is an evalua-
tion of the manager's job performance. Not a pri-
vate, one-on-one evaluation, but a public, collective
evaluation.
A public evaluation, however painful, not only
offers citizens a window through which we can view
commission decision-making, but does much to
enhance an atmosphere of trust between the com-
munity, the commission, and the city manager.
If one is looking for an illustration as to how that
trust can be broken, one need look no further than
this past year, one of the most controversial in our
city's recent history.
During this period we have witnessed city staff


THEN
'SPIN' ZONE


ignore the tree protection
ordinance when considering a
development just north of
Lakewood. We have watched
as that same staff approved
the destruction of two struc-
tures within the historic dis-
trict without the required
involvement of the Historic
District Council. And we,
mystified, have observed the
permitting of three houses
along South Fletcher without
regard for height or side yard
setback limitations.'
I hoped that the city com-
mission, in each of the above
travesties, would exercise


their supervisory authority and do one, or a combi-
nation of the following:
1) Approve a resolution reprimanding the city
manager, or 2) suspend him without pay, or 3) ter-
minate his employment. The justification for these
actions is charter-based, given that Section 29
instructs the manager to, "... see that the laws and
ordinances are enforced." The failure to enforce the
tree protection ordinance, the ordinances protecting
the historic district and the codes protecting our
oceanfront had been openly ignored so, too, had
the commission's supervisory responsibilities.
As for the atmosphere of trust, well, one would
think that all of these situations, and others, would
have been discussed at a public meeting concerning
the city manager's reappointment. Instead, the com-
mission chose to conduct private sessions between
each commissioner and the manager. The only pub-
lic session dealt with the apparent formality of
approving the manager's new contract without

salary, so much for trust.
On a personal note, forgive me, but I think it's
appropriate, I will be forever grateful to Bob Mearns
for two things he built North Beach Park and
Seaside Park, and he put together the beach overlay
ordinance, preventing individuals from combining
lots for development purposes. For over five years I
tried to get city managers interested in completing
the two oceanfront parks. Mearns got those done.
And when I went to the city manager seeking "cre-
ative" help in finding ways to further prevent ocean-
front condominium construction, Mearns found a
way.
Mearns also was the catalyst behind the city's
purchase of the water system from Florida Public

ust because I hang onto the lower edge of mid-
dle-class status by my working woman's
chipped fingernails doesn't mean that I don't
appreciate the finer things of life. So on a
recent trip to northeast Texas, I was eager to
visit the new Fort Worth Museum of Modern Art.
Since Fort Worth is a mecca of fine art, with its con-
temporary % ater gardens, elegant Bass Syrphony
Hall. qre,I.\qrnen's Museum, Museum of Western
Art and one of the 10 finest art museums in the
world, the Kimball all of which I have visited a
number of times I had good reason to expect a
great experience. I had read that the much-touted
new structure designed by world-renowned archi-
tect Tadao Ando and enclosing 53,000 square feet of
gallery space "embodies the pure, unadorned ele-
ments of a work of art."
That's the hype. Here's the reality, as perceived
by yours truly and a longtime Texas friend, Patty V.,
who, by the way, has enjoyed a long career with
American Airlines, traveled extensively and is no
stranger to fine art.
We enter a vast space of concrete beams and light
pouring through walls of glass casting streams of
light onto the floor also of concrete in a geo-
metric pattern. Impressive. But as we wander
through the cavernous galleries, the unrelenting
grayness of the concrete walls begins to get to us.
Cold. Almost ominous in feeling. Never mind, on to
the art itself.

field paintings. Exhibits focused on large, wall-size
square canvases "of pure color, intended to dominate
a viewer's experience." They do just that Rather like

In another gallery, we
observe two huge white
squares. Squinting hard, I
think I see some faint white
grid lines on the canvas. 'The

states our brochure. I'll say.
We move on to the three-

includes a plain, six-foot fluo-

diagonally to the wall. It is
called Diagonal. Another work

Turning into another gallery, we are astonished
to see four small landscapes from the late 1800's -
one, I recall, by Corot holding lonely reign in the
otherwise empty space. All are in ornate frames,
suitable to that period, and are certainly an anachro-
nism in this ultra-contemporary setting. Puzzled, I
read the inscription alongside one of the paintings,
and discover that they are from the collection of a
woman who donated a great deal of money to the
construction of the new museum. Oh.

Utilities, a proactive move that will benefit this city
for years to come.
I am concerned, though, about his penchant for
concentrating power in the manager's office. He
abolished the positions of community development
director and public works director, thinking he
could do much of their work himself. He was wrong.
And his recommendation to abolish the Community
Relations Board and the Environmental Advisory
Board sent the wrong message to the community.
I am also concerned about the lack of direction
concerning key projects and assets. The marina and
waterfront plan has twisted in the wind for months
on end. The CRA is unworkable and has little, if
any, community support. The golf course is strug-
gling to find ways to make necessary capital
improvements. And development after development
continues to be approved on a case-by-case basis
with no regard as to how each piece fits into the
whole. And his complete disregard for any sem-
blance of code enforcement is maddening.
But I'm not responsible for directing Bob
Mearns, and I'm not responsible for supervising
him. The city commission is. And to that end, I hope
they do the following: 1) Schedule a public, special
meeting to discuss the manger's job performance.
2) Give him a vote of confidence, or identify specific
problem areas. 3) If the commission identifies spe-
cific problem areas, give him a timeframe for cor-
recting them. 4) If, at the end of that timeframe the
manger has not corrected these problem areas, or
made significant improvement toward that end, take
appropriate action.
Note to the commission: You may not want to do
this, but you have an obligation under the charter,
an obligation to the community and an obligation to

Embarrassed by my criminal behavior, Patty

On Wednesday, Aug. 10 at a 6 p.m. meeting
of the city Planning Advisory Board, there
will be a public hearing on a proposal to
rezone 6.45 acres of city golf course prop-
'erty from "low-density residential" to "recreation."
Why now? What does this really mean? On the sur-
face it appears that this addresses the public's
strong desire, as witnessed in a Jan. 5 public work-
shop, to retain city land for the recreational enjoy-
ment of its citizens.. Great!
But, as in many issues in our city and county,
there may well be some back-room deliberations
with adverse consequences for the public majority.
The parcel in question is adjacent to five other city
recreation parcels once slated for future golf course
expansion. The addition of this parcel provides
access for a road connecting Simmons Road to 14th
Street. City and golf course officials have been
heard to mention the idea of turning this area into
an upscale recreation vehicle park for outside visi-
tors. In other words, this could be a paved parking
lot with a transient group of residents from outside
the city who would pay for the privilege of parking
here and add more noise to our neighborhoods and
more traffic to our already congested roads.
Maybe this is yet another way to creatively
finance the desired irrigation improvements to the
golf course? The recreation zoning code Sec. 126-
351 has enough wiggle room within it to enable
such a trailer park set-up instead of the more public
use of space, such as hiking and biking trails, play-
grounds and other passive recreation that
Fernandina residents desire. How much public
involvement is required when these various uses
are being determined? Once it is zoned recreation,
do we trust our city officials to do the right thing for
this land? Judging from other recent decisions, I say
no.
As a Fernandina Beach resident and a wildlife
advocate, I have a strong desire to see this land
remain undeveloped in any major sense. The land '

question, along with the other five adjacent parcels,
provides a much-need reservoir for the natural life
still found in the mid-part of our island. This land
along with the fringes of the existing golf course
provides a wildlife corridor connection to the Egans
Creek Greenway, and the continuation of Egans
Creek south of Sadler Avenue and further south
through the marshlands and airport fringe to the
state park system and beyond. The Great Florida
Birding Trail begins at Fort Clinch State Park and
continues south. The diversity of bird species found
here are in part due to the remaining diversity of
habitat patches, including this parcel.
As it is now, otters, raccoons and bobcats tra-
verse this corridor and still have (barely) enough
land to live and breed here. The system of mosquito
ditches and ponds in this area provide food for
water birds, frogs and turtles. Pileated woodpeck-
ers, painted buntings, various warblers and many
other birds that are evident in our backyard bird
feeders all require such stretches of undeveloped
land to forage and find cover in. The remaining
native plants still provide food sources for many
backyard butterfly species. If this area is lost to
development of any sort, whether it be big box
stores, houses or, yes, even a recreational trailer
park, there will be far less recreational wildlife view-
ing opportunities for one and all. One needs only to

parking lot, which was natural woodland only a few
years ago, to see how "recreation" can. be a way to
further destroy natural land and wildlife.
For many Fernandina Beach residents, the
diverse wildlife viewing opportunities are a key rea-
son that they live here. Far more people are back-
yard birdwatchers, and hikers and bikers, than are
golfers, and these constituents needs their own
recreational opportunities as well. According to a
2001 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service report, 3.2 mil-
lion Floridians consider themselves to be wildlife
watchers, accounting for an economic output of $2.8
billion a year. Wildlife watching may be a non-con-
sumptive use of natural resources but it does
require something. It requires key wildlife habitat
and corridors to be preserved.
Before any zoning changes are made to the area
from Simmons Road to adjacent golf course lands,
the public needs a clear understanding of what type
of recreation is and is not planned and possible for
this area. Why not, instead, deem the fringing golf
course land "conservation land?" The addition of
hiking and biking trails and picnic tables and pond
overlooks would fit well within conservation use
parameters. Or, maybe, if zoned "recreation" a
clause could be put in to prohibit a recreational vehi-
cle park or similar "development" The bottom line
is: Why does this property even have to be rezoned
now? Can't this wait until there is a clear proposal
for the way it will be used and more time to
research options? For now, keeping this land in city
hands, but undeveloped in any way, shape or form,
seems to be the best solution.
If you are a concerned wildlife watcher, please
attend this meeting and voice your concerns, and I
will do the same.

The $286.4 billion five-year

"People have a yearning for
an integral way of living, where
they don't feel detached, and can
be more interconnected," he said.
Nearby, a riverfront prome-
nade will border the Nassau River
with shops and restaurants.
Public boaters will be able to
access these shops with docking
space and tie-ups, as well as utilize
an existing boat ramp.
Along its access to A1A,
Ambach said he foresees a more
traditional shopping center, with
a grocery store and possibly
some chain restaurants. Other
areas within the village will have
warehouses and offices, along
with mixed-use residential hous-
ing above office space.
All together, there will be
about 800,000 square feet of com-


widening of A1A for 2010-12, but
the federal funding may help
speed up the project.
FDOT has scheduled prepara-
tion, design and engineering work

acquisition.
Total cost of the project is esti-

Ambach said this will be nego-

This will require more scrutiny

be a lengthy process, and
Ambach said he does not expect
any dirt to be moved on this proj-
ect for two years.
The county, St. Johns River
Water Management District,,
Florida Department of
Transportation and other agen-
cies involved in the DRI will deter-
mine what impacts the develop-
ment could have on intersections,

require the developers to offset
these impacts by paying for
improvements and upgrades.

County faces fines


for landfill woes


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Repair work is "moving along"
at the Nassau County landfill.
The. Florida Department of
Environmental Protection said it
continues to monitor repair work at
the facility, which has been ongo-
ing since late June.
Following heavy rain that
month, faulty pumps allowed water
to rise above permitted levels, cre-
ating concerns about contaminated
water escaping the system.
A DEP spokesperson, Jill
Johnson, said this concern has
been eliminated. Concerns about
the "slurry wall" were also relieved,
she said, when a pump on the
French drain system was repaired
and operating again on July 22.
"There's still some work to do,
but our understanding is every-
thing is moving along. The most
important thing, environmentally,
has been addressed," Johnson said.
The county received a warning
letter from DEP on June 21, which
listed violations and concerns at
the facility located north of
Callahan off US 1/301.
The county had until July 25 to
respond to the warning letter, how-


ever Johnson said to her knowl-
edge DEP has not received a
response.
According to a memo obtained
from the county administrator's
office, the county's consultant
Wendy Karably requested an
extension for the response on July
20.
Karably's memo says that, while
progress has been made on all of
the issues at the landfill, the "sat-
isfactory completion of some of
these items may take longer to
complete and we cannot predict
exactly how long some of the
issues will take."
Johnson also confirmed that
DEP could levy fines for the land-
fill problems, however, dollar
amounts and potential reasons for
the fines would be determined at a
later date.
'There more than likely will be
monetary fines," she said.
The county has received past
warnings and fines from DEP in
2003 and 2004 for citations ranging
from visible litter, waste tires and
standing water at the landfill site.
The county was penalized $11,000
for those violations in October
2004.

New impact fee appreciated


School district earns an A'


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

Nassau County School Superin-
tendent John Ruis voiced gratitude
to Nassau County Commissioners
for their approval of the new school
impact fee.
"The school impact fee passed,
and we're real thankful," Ruis said
at the July 28 school board meeting.
"... I'm glad to see this finally come
to fruition."
The $3,726 fee will be levied on
all new residential construction
beginning Aug. 24, and the school
board will use the money to deal
with anticipated increases in the
student population. Board mem-
bers decided on the amount earlier
this year after receiving results of a
growth impact study they commis-
sioned in November 2003. But it
was up to the county commissioners
to approve the fee, which they did
July 25.
The next step is to have county

MINER Continued from 1A
Under state law, Rachel Miner
could have been charged with
murder if Xanax was found to be a
cause of her husband's death.
S"So we're not going to file a
homicide charge," Burgess said.
"But we're still looking at a possi-
ble sale or distribution charge."
The charge listed on Rachel
Miner's booking sheet with the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
was delivery of a controlled sub-
stance. She was held in the Nassau
County Jail on $100,002 bond until
she was released on her own
recognizance Thursday. Another
court date has not been set.
According to Seagraves, drugs
found in Richard Miner's system
included Oxycodone, a prescrip-
tion painkiller, ephedrine, a stim-
ulant sometimes used for weight
loss, aspirin and cocaine.
Seagraves said Rachel Miner
told police she gave Xanax to her
husband. He. said by law, giving
someone a controlled substance
is illegal whether the person takes
the substance or not.
"When we arrested her, we did-
n't arrest her for contributing to
his death," he said. "She admitted
to us that she gave it to him ... to
try to calm him down."
Seagraves said the investiga-
tion into Richard Miner's death is
still open, and there may be more
arrests. "'
"When something like.(a dea~i
from a drug overdose) happens,
we ... try to follow it as far back as
we can to find the people who are
doing that in our community," he
said. "We want to address the
problem."
Richard Miner was a graduate
of Fernandina Beach High School
He was in the process of being
discharged from the U.S. Army,
where he had reached the rank
of specialist. He had served in
Afghanistan and Iraq, and he

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Nassau County was one of 15
school districts to earn an 'A out of
67 statewide, the Florida
Department of Education has
announced.
The grade for the school dis-
trict is determined using the same
factors that are used to figure
grades for individual schools:
scores on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
and student learning gains.
As FCAT scores were released
throughout May and individual
school grades were announced in
June, Nassau County students and
school personnel had mostly good
news to celebrate. Local students
scored consistently above state
averages on the FCAT, and seven
out of 11 graded schools earned
an'A'
Nassau County School
Superintendent John Ruis credit-
ed administrative staff in the
schools, parents, students and
teachers for the successful school
year.


"A lot of variables and efforts
play into that," he said. "The teach-
ers and students in the classrooms
are really doing an outstanding job,
we have parents who are helpful...
when you look at it, there really
are a lot of people who help make
this happen."
This marks the third consecu-
tive year the Nassau County School
District earned an 'A.' The districts
point total did drop slightly, from
412 in 2004 to 411 this year (a score
of 410 or above is an 'A' grade).
That could change. Ruis said at a
June 9 board meeting the school
district would appeal the 'C' given
to Hilliard Middle-Senior High
School based on "17 or 18 students
... (whose test scores) should not
have been counted" because they
were not enrolled during certain
parts of the school year.
Ruis said he should find out
soon whether the school's grade
will be changed.
In 2005, state standards were
raised in the writing portion of the
FCAT; students now have to score
at least a 3.5 out of 6 in order to
pass, whereas last year 3 was a


passing score. This was also the
first year learning gains of students
with disabilities and limited profi-
ciency in English were included in
calculating school grades.
Nassau County was one of 23
districts with a decrease in grade
points from last year, but all except
four of those schools still received
the same letter grade from last
year.
"In the short term, higher
standards often result in lower
grades, but district grades this year
reflect only small changes from
2004," said a press release from
the Florida Department of
Education.
This year, 15 districts earned
an 'A,' 27 a 'B', 22 a 'C' and three
districts earned a 'D.' No districts
earned an 'E.' Last year, 15 districts
earned an 'A,' 33 a 'B,' 16 a 'C' and
three districts earned a 'D.'
Among neighboring school dis-
tricts, St. Johns County and
Clay County also earned an 'A,'
Duval and Flagler counties each
earned a 'B' and Baker County
earned a 'C.'

Tips for a fire

extinguisher
Nassau County Fire-Rescue
Professionals Local 3101 reminds:
Most fires start small. Except
for explosions, fires can usually be
brought under control if they are
attacked correctly with the right
type and size of extinguisher with-
in the first two minutes.
A fire extinguisher should be
"listed and labeled" by an inde-
pendent testing laboratory. The
higher the rating number on an A
or B extinguisher, the more fire it
can put out. Be careful, high-rated
units are, often heavier models.
Make sure you can hold and oper-
ate the model you are buying.
A portable fire extinguisher
can save lives and property by put-
ting out a small fire or containing it
until the fire department arrives.
Before attempting to fight a small
fire be sure everyone is out of the
building. It is important to have
someone call the fire department
If the fire starts to spread or threat-
ens your escape path, get out imme-
diately!
The operator must know how
to use the extinguisher, quickly
without taking time to read direc-
tions during an emergency.
Remember that the extinguishers
need care' and must be recharged
after every use.
Read and follow the directions
on your extinguisher. If you have
the slightest doubt about whether
or not to fight a fire don't. Get
out and close the door behind you.
For more, information, call
491-7525.

Authorities discovered 200
pounds of marijuana on a refriger-

York about 8 a.m. Sunday.
Alejandro Martin Ponce, 42, and
Jose Luis Ortega, 37, both of Miami,
were arrested and charged with
trafficking marijuana. Ponce was
reportedly driving the truck and
Ortega was a passenger.
Police reportedly found the mar-
ijuana during a routine inspection of
the truck at the weigh station on I-

The truck contained 13 boxes

seafood.
Police believe Ponce and Ortega

Both men are being held at the

David Larry Sikes was sen-
tenced to eight years in a state
prison July 21 after he pleaded
guilty to violating his probation for
convictions in 2002 of sexual bat-
tery, battery and criminal mischief.
Sikes, 28, was originally arrest-
ed Aug. 22, 2002, after a woman
told police Sikes had raped her,
taken her to his Wheeling Trail
home "dragging her around the
yard by her clothes," according to
a police report from the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office.
The report said when Sikes was
arrested, he broke a window in a
police vehicle with his head while
trying to escape.
Sikes was convicted in
December 2002 and sentenced to
two years in a state prison followed
by 10 years of probation. He was


released from
prison on Aug. 20.
His March 3
arrest for sale or
delivery of
cocaine, posses-
sion of cocaine
a and driving with-
Sikes out a driver's
license constitut-
ed a violation of
his probation, according to court
documents.

of two counts of sale and delivery of
cocaine, possession of cocaine and
driving without a driver's license.
He was sentenced to six years in a
state prison on those charges; that
sentence will run concurrently with

ing the door on the romantic trap
The positive benefits ofthat approach are
often immediate and dramatic. Self-respect
expressed In a loving way virtually never fails
to have a salutary effect on a drifting lover,
unless there is not the tinieA spark left to fan.
Thus, in instances when opening the cage
door results in a spouse's sudden departure.
the relationship was over already I'm remind-
ed of the proverb that says.'tf you love some-
thing. set it free. ff it comes back to you, it's
yours If it doesn't come back. in never was
yours min the first place." There is a great truth
in that, and it applies to your reLtionship
with your wife.
Now. obviously, it is risky to precipitate
a period of crisis.When explosiwf individuals'
are Involved in mid-life turmoil or a passion-
ate fling with a new lover, great tact and wis-
dom are required to know when and how to
respond That's why professional counsel is
vtal before, during and after the corifronttaion.
It would be unthinkable of me to recom.
mend that victims of affairs indlscriminarely
pose ultimatums with 24-hour deadlines, or
that they push an independent parmer in a

QUESTION: Children seem to be
growing up at a younger age today than
In the past. Is this true, and if so, what
accounts for their faster development?
DR. DOBSON: Yes. rt I s true-. Staustical
records indicate that our children are grow-
ing taller today than inm the p3st probably
resultmg from better nutrition, medicine.
exercise, rest and recreation. And rhit more
ideal physical environment has apparently
caused sexual maturity to occur at younger
and younger ages.
i is thought that puberry in a partcular
child Is triggered when he or she reaches a
certain level of growth: therefore,whern er.i-
ronmiental and general health factors propEl
a youngster upward at ha tihter rate. sEual
maturation occurs earlier.
For example, in 1850. the avErage age cf
menarche (frst menstruation) in Norwegian
girls was 17.0 years of 3ge.in 1950.;t. w s 13.0.
The average age of puberty in females had
dropped four years in one century In the
United Sates the average age of the menar-
che dropped from 16-S i 1840 to 12.9 in
1950. More recent figures indicate that It row
occurs on average at 12.8 rears of agei Thus.
the trends toward younger dating and sexu-
al awareness are a result, at least in part, of chis
"fast track' mechanism.

band, James, who worked as a
landscaper for years, "has a grow-
ing hand," she said, evident in the
many plants and flowers growing
around their large yard.
The century plant is one of
about a dozen Calhoun and her
husband have in their yard.
The .couple, married for 58
years, owned their first century
plant for 45 years before it
bloomed. Calhoun's current
blooming plant is an offspring of
that first one.
The plant resembles a giant
aloe, but is more related to the
cactus, with sharp hooked thorns
alongside the succulent leaves.
After 10 or 20 years, the century
plant sends out from its center a
green stalk that grows rapidly, up
to eight inches a day, and can
reach more than 20 feet in height.

Frances Calhoun of O'Neil
stretched her hand toward a giant
stalk towering toward the sky in
front of her home.
Calhoun calls the stalk, which
resembled the imaginary one
from the "Jack and the Beanstalk"
fairy tale, "God's handiwork"
because, she said, "Nothing can
stop it from budding and nothing
can stop it from dying."
The stalk, emerging from a
century plant in Calhoun's front
yard, has blossomed with flow-
ers. Folklore says this is a feat
that will happen only once every
100 years, thus its name.,
"I love flowers," said Calhoun,
who once owned a business

Virgin Islanders use the stalk
of a mature century plant, Agave
missionum, as a traditional
Christmas tree.
Islanders also use the stalk to
make primitive rafts. Another
form of the plant, the Agave amer-
icana, is found in the American
desert.
At maturity the stalk blooms
with bright yellow flowers and
pollen-filled cups.
"When the stalk goes all the
way up, (the branches) come out
like arms with no fingers,"
Calhoun said. "They look so pecu-
liar."
After the stalk flowers, the
plant's leaves soon wither and the
plant dies. But the century plant
renders several offspring that wait
for their time to bloom in the
decades to come.
'There's a time and a season
for everything, like the Bible
says," said Calhoun.

'Snow


is white'
lorida State head
coach Bobby
Bowden recently
announced that he
wouldn't suspend A.J.
Nicholson and Ernie Sims
for their contributions to the
Tallahassee police blotter
during the off-season. Is any-
one surprised? That's like
making an official announce-
ment that Halloween is on
Oct. 31. Completely unneces-
sary...
High school coaches in
South Carolina are infuriated
at Gamecocks' head coach
Steve Spurrier for revoking
the scholarships of six play-
ers for no other reason than
they stink. Kinda makes you
feel like Spurrier won't be
pulling the top prospects
from his own state any time
soon...
Fans eager to see the
speedy Matt Jones in action
when the Jacksonville
Jaguars' training camp
opened last weekend were
undoubtedly disappointed to
learn that the first-round
draft pick has yet to ink a
deal with the team and won't
suit up until an agreement is
reached. ;
To those who assume that
the sticking point is money
and that Jones is just being
greedy, I say give the guy the
benefit of the doubt. The
impasse might simply be
with the wording of the con-
tract. Besides, this isn't a
case of the rich getting rich-
er. Jones, will soon be what
you call, "new money"...
One guy who did show up
for camp and who did work
out, albeit on an extremely
limited basis, was running
back Fred Taylor, which has
to delight fans. While Taylor
isn't expected to participate
in much, if any, full contact
before the Jags' regular-sea-
son opener against Seattle
Sept. 11, the fact that he's at
least visible is somewhat
reassuring.
Jacksonville head coach
Jack Del Rio is admittedly
being extremely careful not
to force Taylor back too
soon. Why? The obvious rea-
son is that the coach knows
the odds of his team making
the playoffs seriously hinge
on Taylor's health. Looking
at the big picture, Del Rio's
job might also hinge on the
very same thing...
Sticking with the NFL, I
applaud the Denver Broncos
for giving hall of fame wide
receiver Jerry Rice a chance
to extend his career. While
most teams would likely view
a roster.spot way too valu-
able to take a gamble on a 42-
year-old guy, Denver head
coach Mike Shanahan recog-
nizes that this 42-year-old is
the all-time leading receiver
in the NFL and likely brings
more to the table than a
fourth-round pick out of Sam
Houston State.
Here's to hoping Rice
adds to his already sterling
career...
The following is an
excerpt from a column I
wrote on July 7, 2004:
"Without Drew and guys
like Nick Green, Johnny
Estrada, Eli Marrero and
Charles Thomas (who?), the
Braves would not likely be in
contention for another
National League East title.
This Atlanta club is starting
to remind me of the 1991
team that went from worst to
first in a year."
Take out all the above .
names except Johnny
Estrada and fill in the blanks
with a slew of rookies and
you've got the same story
this season.
The Braves took a firm
hold on first place in the
National League East last
weekend and are primed to
cruise to their 14th consecu-
tive division title. Amazing.
Now if the Braves could only
find a way to extend that suc-
cess into post-season play.
John L. Crawford's column
appears Wednesdays.


RISE AND SHINE, PIRATES


PHOTOS BY BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
Monday was the first official day of practice for high school football teams in Florida. The
Fernandina Beach High School Pirates took advantage of the cool morning temperatures as 69
turned out for the 6-8 a.m. practice. The players returned to the field for a 3:30-6:30 p.m.
practice and will continue the two-a-days through Thursday. Head Coach Ed "Puggy" Brown is
preparing his team for its preseason clash with cross-county rival Hilliard on Aug. 19. Kickoff
is at 7:30 p.m. at Pirate Field. The Pirates' season opener is Aug. 26 at Bradford County and
the home opener is Sept. 2 with Bishop Kenny. Above left, James Southers runs a drill. Above

ond at plus 11. Coming in third at plus 9 was the
team of Harmon (plus 8), J. P Kreger (81, minus
2), Simon Carter (78, plus 3) and George Watts

Gibson (85, minus 3) and Wpody Kallas (82, plus

(82, plus 3), Tim Goodrich (75, plus 2) and Bob
Sibley (81, plus 5) for one of the highest team
scores ever at plus 29 to finish first, edging out the
team of Shave (plus 10), John Bray (84, plus 4),
Jim Raffone (79, plus 7) and Jim Greenwood (78,
plus 5), which came in at plus 26.
It took double digits to be on a winning team as

(79, plus 6) and Jim Robertson (83, plus 4) while

SOne of the most difficult shcs to
master is a high. soft lob shot to
a real light pin placement. such
as right over a bunker The key
to this shot is to gelt the ball to
J stop quickly once it lands on the
green in order to get the ball as
close as possible The dub of
choice for this shot will have to
be the 60 degree lob wedge as the standard
sand wedge will cause many more sculled
shots than good results As for the actual
shot, it is quite difficult to10 get a consistent
swing. Going against most of what we have
been caught in golf, you hae ito cock the
wrists while making a long backswing Use
your torso on the downswing maintaining
the cocked wrists and the blade open
through impact. The follow-through should
have tho, lubface facing op to the sky to try
and generate the proper bounce and spin

OUTDOORS


Hooking up St. Marys kingfish and tarpon


With the full month of
August dead ahead,
saltwater fishermen
will have the oppor-
tunity to enjoy some of the
Southeast's best tarpon and king
mackerel fishing. Also lucky for
area fishermen, we have not
experienced any cold water ther-
moclines so far this summer.
With the surf water temperature
running in the mid 80s, local fish-
ing has been red hot for tarpon
running to over 100 pounds and
king mackerel weighing to just
over 30 pounds.
"We had plenty of tarpon
action just the other day and, to
top things off, a 30-pound king
mackerel hit one of our tarpon
baits," Capt. Benny Hendrix said.
"A local shrimp boat had just
passed by the jetty rocks and dis-
carded its by-catch. Next thing I
knew, a big kingfish came up in
the floating chum and began eat-
ing the floating fish right on the
surface. Immediately I barbed a
live bailt and cast it to the feeding
king mackerel.
"At the same time. my king-
fish reel had a slight over-run.
\\Thile I was untangling the fish-
ing line, I heard a loud splash on
the surface and suddenly we
were hooked tip to a 32-pound
smoker."
However, the big news in local
fishing circles has been the
recent run of tarpon that have
been weighing well over 1001)
pounds.
"We caught and released a
big tarpun that weighed well over
200111 pounds recently," said Capt.
Allen Mills of the WVahoo charter
boat. "It was definitely the largest
tarpon that we have ever caught
in all nmy years of fishing out of
Fernandina Beach."
Most of the best tarpon action
is coming from the tip of the St.
Nlarys south jetty rocks during
the last of the falling and the first-
of the incoming tides. Tarpon
boats are actually hanging over
the submerged jetty rocks at the
very tip of the jetties and fishing
in the deep river hole. which is
some 50 feet deep.
During the middle of the
incoming tide. tarpon are holding
on the, ,.ceanide ,I the south
Sjert; rocks,ietween the white "-
jetty can and the jetty rocks.
Tarpon fishermen will find a low
area in the rocks w here the
incoming tide creates a current
over the rocks. Greenies and
other tarpon baits hold in this
slough, which has produced
excellent tarpon action this sum-
mer.
One of the best angling tactics
for hooking up to high leaping,
gill rattling tarpon is fishing dead
on the bottom with fresh men-
haden. Schools of menhaden are
plentiful alone the beaches of
Amelia and Cumberland islands


and can be
gathered
with a cast
net. Look for
diving peli-
cans and
head their
way!
Once you
have picked
Terry Lacoss your tarpon
... fishing hole,
anchor your
OUTDOORS boat so that
your tarpon
baits can be fished right on the
bottom. Most tarpon fishermen
will employ 50-pound terminal
fishing line and a 6-foot section of
100-pound mono shock leader. A
4- to 8-ounce bank sinker is
attached to a fish finder sleeve
and the terminal fishing line with
a small section of picture wire.
Once the tarpon hits the air, the
heavy weight breaks free.
On the business end of the
shock leader, a 15/0 circle hook
gets the job done. Hook the live
menhaden through the bottom of
the mouth and right out through
the top of the head and drop the
barbed bait down to the bottom
of the tarpon hole. Once a tarpon
takes the bait, allow the tarpon to
pull down the rod tip and begin
to reel. The circle hook will set
itself.
King mackerel have also been
running at the tip of the St.
Marys south jetty rocks during
the incoming tide. Tarpon fisher-
men have been barbing a live
menhaden and fishing the live
bait right on the surface. A series
of small floats or one large float
can be attached to your kingfish
line to keep the live bait up on
the surface.
Standard kingfish terminal
tackle includes 20-pound gear
rigged to a 3-foot section of No. 4
wire, a size one live bait hook
and a short section of No. 5 wire
is used with a No. 4-X treble
hook as a stinger hook. Hook the
live menhaden through the bot-
tom of the mouth and right out
through the top of the head. The
stinger hook is allowed to swing
free along the tail of the live bait.
Chum, chum and chum some
more!
A steady chum line of cut fislt
and ground menhaden attracts
tarpon and king mackerel to your
barbed hooks. A slow drip of
menhaden oil into the water will
also attract tarpon to your barbed
baits.
Tarpon tags are available at
the Nassau County tag office if
you wish to kill your tarpon.
However, tarpon are not edible
and regarded as an outstanding
game fish. Please release them to
fight another day!
Tarpon catch-and-release for-
mula is length times girth
squared, divided by 800.

and the Florida Fish and Wildlife

be meeting in Orlando for the
2005 Summit on the Future of
Hunting in Florida on Aug. 11-13
at the Rosen Centre Hotel on
International Drive.
Historical trends reveal the
number of hunters in Florida has
declined, and the state's land-
scape and population are chang-
ing rapidly in ways that are not
conducive for hunting and
hunters. Florida's major hunting
and conservation leaders are well
aware of these challenges and
have decided it is time to take
action.


The summit's aim is to rally
the hunting community and hunt-
ing organizations to develop and
adopt a statewide initiative to
help secure the future of hunting
in Florida; challenge all hunting
organizations and groups to
become actively involved in par-
ticipating in this initiative; enable
more Floridians to enjoy the
experience of hunting and
become actively engaged in con-
servation of fish and wildlife
resources'
The summit is intended to be
an interactive workshop where
participants are encouraged to
help develop ideas and action
plans and will be challenged to
take an active role in preserving
the future of hunting in Florida.
The meeting is open to anyone
who is concerned with the issue
and ready for the challenge of

County Extension service opens Yulee office


ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL


The Nassau County Cooperative
Extension Service (University of
Florida/Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences-UF/IFAS)
has a new satellite office. It is locat-
ed in the former temporary court-
house building at 96135 Nassau
Place Road in Yulee, which is direct-
ly across from Flora Parke subdi-
vision. This area has been named
the new Nassau County Govern-
ment Complex.
"The new space will allow us to
serve the eastern part of Nassau
County more efficiently," said coun-


ty horticulture
agent Rebecca
Jordi. "In the past
we had a lot of
interest in our
program and this
will give the east-
ern part of the
Jordi county easier
access to the
problem-solving
aspects of horticulture such as
insect and disease identification,"
she added.
Master gardeners will also con-


tinue to use the Nassau County
Extension facility headquarters
which are located at 543350 US 1 in
Callahan, as meetings and pro-
grams will be offered at both
offices. Jordi and Meg McAlpine,
county extension agent for family
and consumer science, currently
share an office at the Callahan loca-
tion to assist the needs of residents
from the Hilliard, Callahan and
Bryceville areas.
Master gardeners at the new
office have already established spe-
cific times to answer gardeners',


questions by phone, 321-5715, or
serve people who walk in the office
needing gardening help. The vol-
unteers are available every Tues-
day and Thursday (except holi-
days) from noon to 4 p.m. A re-
ceptionist is on duty daily from 8-12.
'We're excited," said Jordi. "We
have a great group of volunteers
with a lot of ambitious ideas," she
said. "We hope our new home here
in Yulee will be an asset to new and
seasoned gardeners alike, as well
as the large number of newcom-
ers to our wonderful county."
