issued the day before by the State
Branning left the Fernandina
Beach Police Department earlier
this year, and Ramia left the depart-
ment in 2003. Duffy, still an FBPD
police officer, has been suspended
without pay, according to Police
Chief Chip Hammond.
The charges stem from allega-
tions made by a member of the
Fernandina Beach Police
Explorers Club that she had sexu-
al relations with
the police ,offi-
cers in 2002. The
girl was 16 when

said the allega-
tions first came
to light in August 2004 when the
victim contacted police Capt James
Thompson and told him about the
alleged incidents, which he said
reportedly happened in 2002.
"Capt Thompson took the com-
plaint from her and we called (the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement) and asked if they
would do the investigation, which
is standard procedure," Hammond
The FDLE investigated the
claims and turned the results of
its investigation over to the State
Attorney's Office in July.
After reviewing the investiga-
tion, Assistant State Attorney "Doc"
Burgess ruled that Branning,
Duffy and Ramia would be prose-
cuted. Charges were not filed
against at least one other current
FBPD officer who was connected
with the investigation.

Easter is a time of new beginnings in the Christian
calendar, so it is fitting that Pastor Carlos Serrano's
Hispanic ministry was born four years ago during an
Easter service at the Hope House on Date Street
'They opened their doors to us. We started with five
people and as we grew, we noticed there was a need
for these people to learn to speak English," said
Serrano, a native of Puerto Rico who moved to Florida
from New Jersey.
Teaching English and other life skills has become
part of his mission as head of La Tierra Prometida, The
Promised Land church, located in The River Center
at 720 S. Eighth St. in Fernandina Beach.
Serrano has himself known the sting of being per-
ceived as an outsider in the Anglo community. A
licensed electrician before he received his bachelor's
degree and became a pastor, Serrano was asked for
his "papers," his "green card," his "visa" when he
first moved to Florida and tried to find work.
"I feel their pain," he says of the Hispanic com-
munity that is taking root in Fernandina Beach. "The
fear of speaking, I can relate to that ... All they do is
work. They are afraid to go anywhere."
Approached by police, they might just smile, not
understanding what is being asked of them, he said,
and not realizing their actions might be perceived as

State investigates tax collector's election
The Florida Elections Commis-
sion is investigating a complaint
filed against the Nassau County
tax collector by her opponent in
the 2004 general election.
Democrat Ray Harper alleges
Tax Collector Gwen Miller violat-
ed several election statutes during
her campaign. The complaint
alleges Miller offered employment
to each of her primary election
opponents, Republicans John Drew
and Terri Davis, if they would drop
out of that race. Neither did.
Miller, who won election as a
Republican after winning seven
times previously as a Democrat,
easily defeated Harper in
November. She narrowly defeat-
ed Drew in the August Republican
The allegation was also an issue
in the 2004 campaign. Miller told
the News-Leader last September
that she offered each of her 6ppo-
nents the position of "staff admin-
istrator" prior to the Aug. 31 pri-
Harper's complaint says
Miller's proposition violated a state
elections statute, which states it is
unlawful to "promise to appoint
another person," or "secure or aid
in securing the appointment" of
another person to any public posi-
Miller ultimately hired Michael
Love as the county's first deputy
tax collector. Harper alleges this
too was improper because Love
was Miller's campaign manager
and she did not advertise for the
position or include it in her office's
He also alleges that Miller
required a tax office employee to
reimburse cash drawer shortages
even though the employee didn't
have access to the cash drawer.
In addition to Harper's signa-
ture, five members of his 2004 cam-

an audit of the pro's earnings. 'The
incentive is you have a job."
Vickers valued his annual con-
tract with the city at $127,151 in a

"I'm thinking you make more
than that," Leeper told Vickers.

Prior to Clauson's hiring in 2003,
the department went about two
years without a director, a position
required for state certification.
Should mosquito control lose
its status as a state-approved pro-
gram, Weeks-Samanie said it would
not preclude it from collecting taxes
but would eliminate state funding.
She said there are other districts
that aren't state regulated.
But removing state regulation
removes one means of oversight,
"The state regulates (districts)
and aids the citizens to ensure
what's going on in their district,
and lets them know what can and
cannot be done," she said. "We just
govern the district and make sure
it follows the laws, then we take it.
But as far as satisfaction with the
service, that's up to the citizens."
Clauson resigned from
Mosquito Control to take a posi-
tion with the state in the same
department as Weeks-Samanie.
"It's funny that all this is coming
up after Mr. Clauson has resigned
and that's where he's going to
work," Pitts said. "We've never had

The NCSO has also implement-
ed a Community Outreach program
in which Seagraves has been active-
ly involved. Its an "after-hours" pro-
gram in which he and other offi-
cers go into neighborhoods and
discuss with citizens what their
problems and needs are, which are
then documented and kept on file
for future reference while address-
ing them, he said.
Although it was not required by
the state, Seagraves said his office
has implemented a monthly "in-
home" check of the 115 Sexual
Predators residing in Nassau
County to stay abreast of their
whereabouts, he said.
Another new program is the
"Chaplain's Program," which
Seagraves said will benefit families
who have lost loved ones, and may
also be used to minister to deputies'

deal with on a day-to-day basis.
Seagraves said within the last 2

an adult suffering from Alzheimer's

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9,2005/News-Leader
VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
I worked for Nassau, County
from 2001-2003 in what was at that
time known as the Planning
Department On my first day on
the job, a colleague beganito regale
me with stories about someone
that she called the Beach Lady. My
interest was piqued to say the least.
Upon meeting Ms. Betsch, she
lived up to all that I had been told
beforehand. As I got to know Ms.
Betsch, in a professional capacity,
I began to admire her dedication
and loyalty, and respect her undy-
ing love for her beloved American
Beach, and its crown jewel, NaNa.
Although I did not always agree
with the Beach Lady's viewpoint, I
always viewed with respect her
vision, her compassion and her
willingness to advocate for a com-
mtinity that she loved. MaVynee,
you will be missed. There will
never be another like you.
I have been living in Yulee off
and on for the past three years. I
have sold my home in Jacksonville
and am now a permanent resident
of Nassau County. It is with great
sadness that I witness the whole-
sale clearing of land without an
apparent plan of development. I
see land cleared and then a "for
sale" placed on the property. Not a
tree or anything that even resem-
bles a tree is left on the land.
I urge the county commission
to stop approval on future projects.
until some sanity can prevail in the
issuance of permits. People move
to a rural area to experience liv-
ing in an uncluttered environment.
We don't want large development.
[1 we want to live in large subdivi-
sions, we can move to Jacksonville..
The new development at the
beginning of Chester Road makes
me want to cry. The developers,
have torn down every tree and.r
then have started building what
my grandmother called "spittin'
houses." You can stand in one
house and spit into the one next
door. Landscaping includes 5=6 foot,
trees that will take years to grow.
Please pay attention to your
constituents. We don't wantwhole-
sale development. We don't want
big signs. We do want trees.
I urge the county commission-
ers to take a trip to Longboat Key.
It would be well worth the money
that the county would spend in
sending them there. There are set-
backs with trees, small signs -
even for Publix. Behind the set-
back there is a complete office
complex, post office, gas station
and medical buildings. This is not
visible from the highway. Housing
has been zoned with treed lots.
You do not feel like you are on
Blanding Boulevard in
Jacksonville. I am afraid that will be
the fate of SR 200 if something is
not done soon.
I urge all registered voters to
tune into the county commission
meetings. Pay attention to how
your -elected officials vote. If you
don't like how they are managing
county land, money and other
resources, do not re-elect them
when you go to the polls. We must
be responsible as well to elect
those that have the voter's best
interest at heart.

Mr. Crawford has made the
family of Ms. Mixon pay for some-
thing they have no knowledge of,
continues to put untruths out for
the media and has made it impos-
sible for them to get any peace
from the loss of a loved family
member. I find it impossible to
believe that this theft could have
occurred without being discovered
by someone before now. There has
to be a balance and records from
the place of origin of the money
(such as parking tickets, speeding
tickets, ect.). Surely the depart-
ment that issues these citations,
would have to have a record that
.must match the deposit from the:
finance department? Why did no
one find a discrepancy before now?
There is something really wrong
My belief is that there needs to
be yet another investigation, of Mr.
Crawford and Mr. Gerry) Greeson,
who so conveniently found this
embezzlement scheme so soon
after taking office. Mr. Crawford
makes sure his name- is in the
media for having discovered every-
thing, and yet doesn't that mean
that the is missnpndin our money?

MaVynee Betsch, the "Beach Lady," was one of,
a kind. We will miss her.
Betsch, who died Monday at age'70, was cer-
tainly not the only person who sought to preserve
American Beach. But she was the face of a strug-
gle to keep the historic black community from
being overwhelmed by the development
encroaching on it.
American Beach was founded in 1935, the year
of her birth, by a group including her great-grand-
father, Abraham Lincoln Lewis, president of the
Afro-American Insurance Co.
American Beach was an oceanfront resort for
black Americans when they were denied by race
and color from beaches reserved for whites only.
That history was a reminder of a sad chapter of
America's past, but it also represented the heyday
of American Beach.
Beach Lady also was an environmentalist,
seeking to preserve the natural features that
made American Beach special sand, sea and
sky. Her persistence led to the,preservation of
Naya,,fh. sLand dune., tr donled by w601
AmeliaJsland Co. to. the N,ational, Park Service.
Beach Lady's eccentricities may have dimin-
ished her message for some locals, but they
enhanced it for regional and national audiences. A
former opera singer, she never really left the
Nor has she really left it now. Departed in
body, her spirit infuses American Beach.
,We can think of no better testament to her than
for Nassau County residents to continue to pre-
serve American Beach's history and to protect it
from overdevelopment ,
Beach Lady had hoped last January, during cel-
ebrations of her and the community's 70th birth-
days, to attend the opening of a museum in a new
community center at Julia and Mary streets.
For mostly financial reasons, that was not to
be. But it is still appropriate that the community
center and museum be completed. The A.L Lewis
Historical Society seeks to make that happen.
American Beach deserves a community center
to reflect its present and a museum to reflect its
past We're sure that whenever an opening cere-
mony is held there, Beach Lady will be on hand.
John McBrearty, president of the Amelia Island
Runners, should be commended for again leading a
successful, family-friendly sporting event for the
Amelia Island community Saturday morning. lke
the true athlete and community leader he is, John
overcame a recent major surgical procedure to spear-
head the fifth annual Turtle Trot.
Under his leadership, the Turtle Trot drew over
200 runners and walkers to Fort Clinch, helping to
raise approximately $2,000 for the Amelia Island
Turtle Watch. The event nearly doubled in size and
sponsors from previous years.
A hearty thank you from all of the Amelia Island
Runners to John, our many sponsors, volunteers
and participants who made Saturday's event such a
positive experience. We look forward to John's lead-
ership again for December's Reindeer Run.

Public servants tirade revealing
When I wrote my column two weeks ago
(Aug. 26) questioning the purpose of
the county's internal investigation of
mismanagement issues at the new
Nassau County Judicial Annex, I knew there would
be those who would not agree with my views. That
goes with the territory when you write on sensitive
community issues. As the comic-strip character
said, "I think everyone is entitled to my opinion"
(but they don't have to agree with it).
Therefore it came as no surprise when I received
a call from County Attorney Mike Mullin (who had
directed the investigation) saying he was accepting
my offer to call me directly when he had a question
regarding something I had written. Mr. Mullin (with
whom I regularly speak) believed my column over-
simplified the many complex issues that had been
raised by Commissioner Marianne Marshall in her
initial report It was/is his position that the county
commission had tasked the investigative team to
answer all of the allegations that had been raised,
not just the single one related to wetlands mitiga-
Throughout the entire conversation Mr. Mullin
was calm, civil, eloquent and reasonable. You don't
survive more than 20 years as the county attorney
without these public relations skills. When the call,
ended we basically "agreed to disagree," and parted
(as far as I could tell) on cordial terms.
Now compare that contact with an e-mail I
received from another member of "the investigative
team," Jose Deliz, Nassau County's director of engi-
neering services. Mr. Deliz was incensed about my
column, and for reasons that were never quite clear
seemed to believe that all of my comments were
directed against him exclusively and personally (a
conclusion Mr. Mullin had already dispelled).
Deliz questioned my research (or lack thereof),
writing, "All you have to do is make a minimal
effort But someone like you, I guess,, cannot be
bothered with facts. Speculation is so much. (more)
He was particularly troubled by my questioning
the "objectivity and credibility" of an investigative
team that is tasked with looking into their own
actions, and those of their colleagues. Mr. Deliz
writes, "Want to talk about objectivity and credibili-
ty? Let me see, you write about a subject you know
nothing about (you did not attend the presentation,
did not obtain the materials, did not talk to anyone),
form your own hypothesis, dignify it with a bogus
conclusion and dare accuse me of lacking objectivity
Now take a deep breath. Mr. Deliz. I did review
Sthe materials, and contrary to
what you may want to believe, I
did talk with many, many peo-
The tirade goes on for sev-
eral paragraphs and covers my
suggestion that the "$43,000
cost of the investigation" was
.- not "a true cost to county tax-
payers" since the four mem-
bers of the team were full-time
Mike Boyle county employees who would
be paid anyway (no matter what
issues they were addressing).
WAIT A According to Deliz, "For one
INUTE thing, you forgot some of that,
cost is reproduction and a court
reporter. The reporter was nec-
essary since we needed to establish complete trans-
parency and preempt people like you from claiming
bias.... You, of course, don't need to bother (to
review the transcripts) since the facts, although
interesting, are irrelevant The other thing is your,
claim that I'm inept Everyone has their opinion...."
Mr. Deliz, believe it or not, it's not always about
you. Nowhere in my column did I single you out as
being "inept." But since you raised the issues of a
court reporter and copying costs, why go to all this
trouble and expense and not take the testimony.
under oath? Could it be because the questioning
technique used by the team was so leading (see, I
did review the transcripts) that most of the "witness-
es," ifthey were smart, would have been reluctant
to sign a sworn statement under oath?
In closing, Mr. Deliz notes my 27 years as an FBI
agent and says, "Makes me wonder if your inves-
tigative skills then are (sic) as good as they are now.
How many people (did) you put behind bars using
speculation instead of proof? Irresponsible is the
word that comes to mind. Used to be newspapers
only wrote opinions from distinguished intellectuals.
It's a pity that our local News-Leader can't find any-
thing better than your vitriol to publish."
This last observation actually has a bit of merit.
It's true; I have never been confused with those who
are true "intellectuals." But as for putting people
"behind bars using speculation instead of proof,"
our criminal justice system makes that scenario
nearly impossible. However, it's disappointing to
learn that Mr. Deliz used his county office, his coun-
ty computer, county time and my tax dollars, to com-
pose an attack on a county taxpayer (me). Frankly, I
have enough critics in the private sector that it
seems unfair to expect me to subsidize county
'It's a pity that our local News-Leader
can't find anything better than
your vitriol to publish.'
employees in this endeavor. If I had launched such
an "official attack" on a private citizen when I was
with the FBI, I would have been fired.
But if my professional qualifications, credentials,
and experience are open to question by Mr. Deliz
(and they certainly are), then turnabout is fair play.
Mr. Deliz holds the position of director of engineer-
ing services for Nassau County. As a member of the
internal investigative team, Mr. Deliz played a criti-
cal role in analyzing and interpreting the many doc-
uments pertaining to the wetlands mitigation issues
in question at the judicial annex. In other county
matters, especially land development, he has been
instrumental in studying the issues and making rec-
ommendations to the county counmission.
On one particular occasion, I was there when he
quietly conferred with a prominent developer and
then announced to a group of local residents the
steps the developer could follow in order to put 10
homes on two lots in their neighborhood. He, con-
cluded by saying that he (Deliz) was the one who
would decide if an intersection could handle the
increased traffic from a new development (which
was the residents' main concern), "and the commis-
sion will accept the recommendation I give them."
With that kind of power and authority you would
hope he would be concerned with the impact new
development would have on current residents, and
would use his position to enforce current codes and
regulations which have been passed to protect the
community. Unfortunately it appears that some
county departments are acting as advisers to devel-
opers by showing them how to circumvent standing
restrictions. Mr. Deliz, who holds a bachelor's
degree in chemical engineering from the University
of Puerto Rico, would be a better public servant if
he spent less time "attacking the messenger," and
more time remembering which constituency he is
supposed to serve.
As far as being a "chemical engineer," something
from the tone of his e-mail told me he probably was-
,n't a "civil" engineer.

That's what I do on fall Saturdays.

game some people call football, but is often played
indoors and includes more fireworks than the Parade
No, I watch my football on Saturdays..
On Saturday I either watch football, or sit on the
tailgate of a pickup parked a quarter mile from a sta-
ditm about to watch football.
I eat fried chicken and barbecue, add a little bour-
bon to my Coke and smoke cigars.
I call my friends in other cities 10 or 12 times a
day to discuss defensive stands, third-down calls and
the crispness of a 19-year-old redshirt freshman
I cuss a lot.
I get so nervous on fourth and goal I can feel it in
I get so happy I fight back tears.
I sit in the sun apd talk for hours to people I con-
sider some of my closest friends even though I only
see them five days a year.
I listen to three-hour pre-game radio shows for
teams I don't even like.
I call my grandfather and

every Saturday their job is at stake. And it's all in the

Curtins have done them one better-'we have,

I must admit that when this Virginia-raised girl
first moved to the Sunshine State, I was appalled at
the variety, uniqueness and abundance of Florida's
critters. We didn't call them palmetto bugs where I
came from, but regardless of the geography, they
still made me scream. Mice I could handle, but
those big brown babies made me stand on my
chair and yell for help. The book exchange on Ash
Street introduced me to wood spiders, and I lis-
tened to the footsteps of a full-grown adult as it
tromped by me late one afternoon. It was as large
as the lid on a pint-sized jar of mayonnaise.
But nothing prepared me for what has walked,
slithered and stalked out of the undeveloped lot
behind our house: blue-tailed skinks I have had to
arm wrestle to get to my car; rattlesnakes toadally

these small creatures. The dog was terrified, so I
had to overcome mygirly-girly squeamishness
and scoop up the toad to relocate him. It wasn't
pleasant, but it beat explaining to my husband how
our Lab died of fright in the backyard.
But nothing prepared me for the large number
of hoppy toads in Fernandina. Patootie, our auxil-
iary dog, used to have great fun pooching them
with her nose to make them jump. One day I dis-
covered Patootie with the most peculiar look on
her face, so I raced her to Jim Hicks. We never fig-
ured out what made her liver go bananas, but she
has never again even acknowledged the presence
of a hoppy toad.
And now this year, we have lizards; lizards that
come in all shapes and sizes and colors. The
skinks and I have met before, but now there is a
long, skinny, bright green creature whose narrow,
elongated snout reminds me of a crocodile. He
lives on and near our back gate, and glares at me
as I off-load all of the Publix
and Wal-Mart bags. If I could
glare like that, I could turn
people to stone.
The black ones with the
yellow stripes enjoy the north
side of the house, as do what
must be their cousins; their
yellow stripes are accented by
blue or white dots. Out front,

My absolute favorites are the chunky ones who.
live around our big green garbage can. They have
barrel-shaped bodies and a feisty attitude, so I
have dubbed them the Jack Russell terriers of the
lizard world. I am afraid, however, that their comi-
cal bowleg walk somewhat detracts from their
fierceness. Their colors range from olive drab on
top to pale mustard on their bellies. They have a
frill that runs from snout to tail, and when I inter-
rupt them in whatever important business they
are conducting, that frill goes rigid as they stop
and glare at my impertinence.
I'm afraid I have insulted these downsized
dragons, because I cracked up the first time one of
them gave me his best glare and came forth with
that aggressive pumping, push-up motion. If you
don't hear from me for a while, it's probably
because one of them dragged me behind the
garbage can to have his lizardly way with me.

Taking title: One name or both?
CHARLES J. KOVALESKI
For the News-Leader
One of the most critical long-
range decisions a couple makes
when buying a home is how the
title should be listed on the prop-
erty's deed a decision that can
have significant consequences in
the case of the death of one part-
ner, the divorce of married part-
ners or the break-up unmarried
Married couples usually take
title as "tenants by the entirety,"
which protects the property if
one partner faces financial diffi-
culties; unmarried couples or
investment partners, however,
must explore other ways of tak-
ing title on their new home, usu-
ally as "tenants in common" or as
"joint tenants" in a partnership
It's especially important for
unmarried couples buying
homes together to draft a written
property agreement before clos-
,ing on the house. The agreement
should cover issues such as how
much of the house each partner
owns, how the title is to be listed
on the deed, and what happens
to the house if you break up.
For both married and unmar-
ried couples, it's wise to consult
with your real estate attorney for
advice when exploring title
options. The most common ways
for a couple to take title are:
Tenancy by the entirety.
Most married couples who don't
live in community property
states generally use this form of
ownership (Florida is not a com-
munity property state). The mar-
ried couple is viewed as the
owner of the property. Upon the
death of one, the survivor
becomes the sole owner and con-
firms this with an affidavit of
death and continuous marriage.
Tenants in common. Under
this arrangement the buyers own
an equal or unequal percentage
interest in the property, which
they can separately sell or
bequeath to their heirs. Most
unmarried couples chose to take
title to property in this way. If
one owner dies, the decision
about what will become of his or
her portion of the house is deter-
mined in the deceased owner's
will. For those in a second mar-
riage, this is especially impor-
tant. If a surviving spouse is left
off a deed and not named explic-
itly in a will, he or she can face a
legal challenge from the
deceased spouse's children from
a former marriage.
Unmarried buyers are increas-
ingly opting for a partnership
agreement, which details who
pays for expenses, the mortgage,
taxes and utilities, and how an
eventual house sale would be
organized. If two buyers split up,
leaving only one to pay the mort-
gage, a partnership agreement
might require the non-paying
buyer to give up a portion of the
proceeds when the house is sold.
Other provisions might include
multiple appraisals to determine
buy-out figures should onepart-
ner wish to sell to the other.
Living trust Although it is
more expensive to set up initially,
property owners can choose to
hold title in a revocable living
trust. The living trust can be
changed or revoked, much like a
will, to determine who receives
title to the property after an
owner dies. Once the owner dies,
however, the living trust
becomes irrevocable, and the
successor's trustee, such as a
spouse, adult child or bank
trustee, takes over and adminis-
ters the trust assets.
If you have any questions
about how to take title to your
property or how it will affect
your estate planning goals, you
should consult with your real
estate attorney either before or
immediately after you close on
your new house. Remember that
once one of you dies, it will be
too late to change how title is

Estimate water well needs and supply
Whether it's a new water well or
an existing one, owners want the
assurance that a water well will
meet their water supply needs. But
how do you know if a well is ade-
quate to provide the amount of
water you need when you need it?
The National Ground Water
Association offers the following
tips on how to estimate your water
Generally, a home should not
run out of water if the well can sup-
ply the "peak load" that is, the
amount of water used during the
period of the day when the demand
is highest. Whether or not a well
can supply the peak load depends
Well flow Water flowing
into the well measured in gallons
per minute (gpm).
Peak load time The length
of time during which the peak load
is to be delivered.
-* 'We. storage The amount
of available water stored in the
Well storage is determined by
the diameter of the well casing,
the depth of the pump placement
and the distance from the ground
surface to the water surface in the
well when the well is not in use
(static water level). For example, a
6-inch diameter well will hold a gal-
lon of water per foot of well casing.
If the static water level is at 100
feet and the well pump is at 150
feet, the difference is 50 feet for 50
gallons of available stored water.
The amount of water per foot will
vary if the diameter of the well cas-
ing is less than or greater than 6
The following formulas are
based on some assumptions that
have proven to be fairly accurate.
To estimate your water needs, here
is what you do:
1. Multiply 100 gallons by the
number of bedrooms to come up
with the peak load.
2. Multiply the flow rate-into
your well by the number of bath-
rooms, then divide that amount
into the peak load figure. This
gives you the peak load time.
3. Finally, multiply the well flow
rate by the peak load time, then
add this figure to the well storage
amount. If the total equals or
exceeds the peak load figure, the
well would be adequate to meet
Try an example using a three-
bedroom house with two and a half
bathrooms, and a 6-inch well with
a static water level, of 50 feet, a
pump placement at 190 feet and a
flow rate of 3 gpm.
1. 100 gallons x 3 bedrooms
equals 300 gallons peak load
2. 3 gallons per minute flow rate
times 2 1/2 bathrooms equals 7.
This is divided into the peak load
of 300 gallons for a peak load time
of 40 minutes.
3.3 gpm flow rate is multiplied
by 40 minutes to come up with a
120 gallons. This is added to the
well storage of 140 gallons (the dif-
ference between the depth of the
pump placement and the static
water level; in other words, 190
feet minus 50 feet) for a total of
SAs you can see. the peak load is
300 gallon,, but when the calcula-
ffois-ire done, we find that ithe
well only produces 260 gallons dur-
ing the peak load time. In this
example, the well does not meet
the demand during peak load
These formulas are not exact,
but they can provide a reasonable
estimate of your water needs.
If you are concerned that your
well may not be adequate to meet
your needs, contact a qualified
water well contractor for an evalu-
The National Ground Water
Association provides a "Contractor
Lookup" service on its web site,
www.wellowner.org, where you
also can learn more about ground
water and wells.
Often there are options short of
deepening the well or drilling a
Such options can include clean-
ing the well screens; using well
"rehabilitation" techniques to
increase the flow rate; lowering
the pump; or adding water storage
capacity through larger or addi-
tional pressure tanks, or through

. Other times it may be neces-
sary to deepen the well or drill a

As I drove, she pointed with
pride to the inlets, waterways and

That day, I witnessed her
pleasure in having saved the nat-
ural habitats along that two-lane
stretch of scenic roadway. But I
had also seen her weep for "the
80 acres," originally part of
American Beach, that she
adamantly believed had been

County gets ready for Ophelia
As Hurricane Ophelia hovers
off the coast of Florida, local emer-
gency workers are preparing for a
possible hurricane, and local resi-
dents are being advised tb plan for
potential evacuation and also to
stock up on hurricane supplies.
On Thursday, the storm was sit-
ting about 70 miles east of Cape
Canaveral and 165 miles southeast
Nassau County Emergency
Management Director Nancy
Freeman said local emergency
workers are closely monitoring the
storm. On Thursday, Nassau
County was under a tropical storm
watch, meaning that tropical storm
conditions are possible in the area
within the next 36 hours.
"We're making sure we have
plenty of fuel in' our vehicles, road
clearing equipment, generators,
things like that," Freeman said. No
local shelters had been opened,
* For updates on Hurricane Ophelia, visit the National Weather
Service National Hurricane Center web site at www.nhc.noaa.gov.
* Public radio service weather information is available by tuning in
to 89.3 FM and 690 AM.

number is (904) 548-4980.

management personnel are coor-
dinating with local school officials
about the possibility of opening
shelters within the next few days if
Local law enforcement and fire
rescue personnel who were on
standby to head to the Gulf Coast
to assist victims, of Hurricane
Katrina will now stay in Nassau
County due to the potential threat
to the area, said Freeman.
"We are planning on a minimum
of tropical storm strength winds at
this point," Freeman said, advising
residents to "review their own
plans, have their supplies gathered
and to really stay closely in touch
with storm reports."
According to the National
Weather Service, Ophelia's sus-
tained wind speeds, had reached
60 mph on Thursday.
"'There remains a considerable
uncertainty regarding the future
motion and intensity of Ophelia and
... also the specific local effects from
the storm," according to the hur-
ricane statement from the NWS.
'This storm is tough because
ifs sitting so close to the coast and
there are so many unknowns,"
Freeman said. She said Thursday
morning the current predicted
track for the storm was to continue
its "northward drift for the next 24
hours," then take an eastward turn,
"taking it away from Florida."
Freeman added it is possible
the storm could turn back towards
Florida. "It's real hard to say past
the next three days," she said.
Nassau County is also under a
flood watch and a wind advisory,
and Freeman said residents should
expect heavy rainfall and high surf
at the beach.
So far, Freeman said no dam-
age has been reported as a result of
the rainfall or winds, and only "very
localized, very temporary" road
closings have resulted from rain.
On Thursday, all roads in Nassau
County were open.,
Felony charge dropped
after football 'prank'
A felony charge has been
dropped against a Hilliard Middle-
Senior High School football play-
er involved in "a prank" to van-
dalize the West Nassau County
High School football field before
last Friday's game.
The State Attorney's Office

burglary, which is a felony. He
remains charged with criminal
mischief, a misdemeanor.
A third teen was arrested last
week in connection with the prank
allegedly planned by some
Hilliard football players.
Police believe several Hilliard
football players were planning to
pour rock salt onto the field in
the shape of an H; the rock salt
would have killed the grass under-

A 17-year-old Hilliard boy was
arrested Sept. 1 in connection
with the alleged crime.
Information on charges
against the two juveniles was not
released due to their age.

The MPO recently issued an
annual report in which it lists 82
road projects it is recommending
for the four-county area, only three
of which are in Nassau: the A1A
widening and US 301 improve-
ment, which the state will fund,
and the extension of CR 108 from
US 17 to Blackrock Road, which is
to be funded by the county. The
other 79 projects are in Duval, St
Johns and Clay counties.,
East Nassau Homeowners'
Council President Robert
Weintraub said the MPO neg-
lected other local road projects,
including the widening, straight-
ening and extension of Pages

from the Duval line to 1-95 inter-
change, a $25,000 study of a new

rThe purpose of this meeting is for
residents to take some leadership
in getting the state to pay more
.serious attention to Nassau

Q. I can't seem to get my
kids to exercise. What
do you suggest?
A First of all, you are not
alone. Parents all over
the country complain that
they cannot get their kids out
from in front of the television
or video games, and our chil-
dren are becoming less
healthy because of it.
Physical fitness studies of
children show that children
are slower, fatter and weaker
than comparison studies
from years ago. Obesity
affects approximately 20 per-
cent or 11 million school-
aged children. Children usu-
ally learn their habits at
home; and unfortunately, like
father like son. A quarter of
our nation's adults are over-
weight, and less than 50 per-
cent report getting any regu-
lar exercise, while only 10
percent exercise on a daily
I took my daughter to the
gym this past weekend at her
request. We spent about a
half hour shooting baskets
and working on dribbling,
about 15 minutes on the bike,
15 on the treadmill, and then
did some rowing, stretching
and agility drills. It may
sound like I was driving her,
but trust me, she was driving
me, asking "What's next?"
My wife and I have been get-
ting to the gym more regular-
ly, and our habits are wearing
off on our children. When we

A. You likely sustained a
quadriceps contusion, a
deep bruising of the thigh
muscle. While I agree with
putting ice on it, you made a
small error keeping your
knee straight. Putting your
knee in a bent position keeps
the muscle in a more elongat-
ed position and makes it less
likely to tighten up. Typically
the muscle is more sore the
next day, but don't let this
keep you from getting things
Taking the knee through
a gentle range of motion will
again help improve blood
flow, heat the muscle up and
jump start the healing
process. Sports creams, com-
pression thigh sleeves and
matories are other measures
that can help make your
thigh feel better. Your physi-
cal therapist or athletic train-
er likely also has some addi-
tional treatments such as

that may be beneficial.

said Tim McKercher, president of

sensitive to what hurricanes can
do and, to push this event forward
is not in our participants', spon-

We will produce a safe and fun-
filled event in October, giving
everybody time to reschedule their
vacation and travel plans. By chang-

additional positive aspects for the
The first positive aspect is bet-

tainly be more conducive to a safe
and fun weekend in a premier per-
sonal watercraft riding area. Some
of the other positives to resched-

prices dropping and ensuring an
abundance of fuel availability. This
new date also allows manufacturer

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9,2005 LEISURE News-Leader
WINE Continued from IB
Riesling especially the drier
styles is another wine that has
a clearly defined sense of place.
Riesling's home is in central
Europe, primarily on either side
of the Rhine in Alsace and Ger-
many and in Austria. Germans
make their riesling sweet and
that makes it incompatible with
most foods. But the Alsatians are
drier and the Austrians are bone-
dry. Washington state has also
been making good rieslings
recently. Chateau Ste. Michelle,
available locally around $11 com-
pares well with my favorite, the
Alsatian Trimbach, around $18 in
local markets. When traveling in
Alsace you find choucroute garni
on every menu, with different
styles in Barr, Ribeauville and.
Colmar, but all with a combina-
tion of pork, bacon, sausage,
white beans and sometimes
goose. The best wine for this
dish, without a doubt, is Alsatian
riesling. The reason is terroir.
The wine and the food come from
the same earth and are affected
by the same climate. Whip up an
Alsatian choucroute and open a
bottle of Trimbach and see the
Australia has a local dish
called Dinlkum Chili that features
meat cubes (kangaroo Down
Under, but sirloin in the
Americanized version), ground
beef and pork, bacon, red chilies,
onion, celery, green peppers,
tomatoes, garlic, oregano, cumin
and beer. After sauteing the vari-
ous,ingredients, combine in a pot.
and simmer for an hour-and-a-
half. To be realistic, use
Australian beer and wave an
authentic boomerang over the pot
14 times an hour (that's what the
"Meal-Master" recipe says). Then
serve it with an Australian shiraz
such as Rosemount or Black Opal
(about $9 to $11i in local mar-
kets). While shiraz with any meat
stew or chili is a very good
match, there is something special
about blending the Australian
wine with the Aussie chili.
Bobotie is a South African
dish that has ground beef blend-
ed with onion, parsley, curry,
fresh coconut, lemon, vinegar,
honey and tomato paste then cov-
ered with mixture of milk and.
eggs and baked uncovered in an
oven until browned. Serve this
casserole with Roodeberg, a
South African blend of cabernet
sauvignon and the very earthy'
pinotage (Amelia Liquors and
Harris Teeter $10- $11) and think
of the vineyards growing in the
that whip the Cape of Good Hope.
As this is written my Sicilian
Contessa is brewing shrimp and
calamari (fresh from a Mayport
market) in her prized marinara
sauce. A bottle of Sicilian Nero
d'Avola ($10 at Amelia liquors) is
chilling, although a Tuscan san-
giovese (such as Danzanti or
Cecchi available in local markets
for the same price) could do
almost as well.
We had this combination at
the seaside town of San Leone in
southern Sicily. The strength of
the red wine does well with the
spiced and herbed marinara but
the wine has an earthiness that
blends superbly with the squid
and gamberi that are staples of
the Italian island. ,
Would you have wine with gaz-
pacho? This cold tomato-based
spicy vegetable soup does not
appear to call for a wine accompa-
niment But sip a glass of Spanish
manzanilla sherry with it and see
terroir at work. Manzanilla and
fino sherries.are light and dry
(not the cloyingly sweet stuff
Aunt Matilda served).
Most people only keep a few
bottles of their favorite wine in
the house which they have
regardless of what food is served.
But think of terroir when plan-
ning menus and consider wine as
one of the ingredients.
There is much confusion over
the temperatures at which wine
should be served. "Room temper-
ature" for reds is based onroom
temperatures in chilly England
and France, not in steamy
Florida. That works out to about
65 degrees. If you don't have a
wine cooler (a good investment if
you're serious about wine) put a
red in the fridge about an hour
before opening. Itf you do have a
wine cooler'keep reds on the top
shelf where its warmer and let
the red warm up for a few min-
Whites should be served at
temperatures between 45 and 55.
Any colder and you will lose
much of the taste. As most refrig-
erators are set to 40 degrees or
lower, you should let your refrig-
erated whites warm up a bit.
Summer whites such as pinot
gris and the Portuguese ahd
Sicilian wines we've written about
recently should be served at
about 45 degrees. But chardon-
nay, sauvignon blanc, white
Bordeaux and white Burgundy
should be in the 50s to experi-
ence their full flavors.
