Gooding wrote that she was
given no pay raise to serve as inter-
im airport manager from February
to June 2003. She then began to
receive a stipend in addition to her
regular salary as grants adminis-
trator.
Mearns assigned Vickers, the
city's golf pro, to take over as air-
port manager in May. Vickers has
since resigned, effective Dec. 2.
"No reason was given to me
... for paying me substantially less
than a male for performing the
same job duties," Gooding wrote.
"I believe I was discriminated
against on the basis of my sex,
female, in violation of Title VII of
the Civil Rights Act of 1964,, as
amended, and the Equal Pay Act of
1963," she told the EEOC.
The complaint was filed Aug. 3.
Itwas obtained by the News-Leader
after a public records request to
the city.
EEOC officials will. not
acknowledge or comment on such
complaints until after they are
resolved.
Mearns declined to comment
on the complaint.
In her performance evaluations
since becoming a city employee,
Gooding has received high marks
- a 9 or a 10 in all categories. The
city uses a scale of 0-10 for a vari-
ety of job performance measures
where 10 means the employees
"far exceed requirements" and 9,
means they "exceed require-
ments."
As. her direct supervisor,

Johns to enforce them.
"They need to be fined for that
and get it corrected," Branan said.
The St Johns e-mail says fixing
the storm water ponds would alle-
viate street flooding and road dam-
age. It states it would not address lot
grading problems which cause
flooding in several yards.
Resident Hilda Ainsworth said
the property around the home she
bought in Page Hill two years ago is
more of a pond than a yard.
"It stays flooded 10 or 12 days at:
a time," she said. "I haven't been
able to use it since Memorial Day."
Resident. Linda Frentzel said

Speaking to Page Hill residents
after the meeting, Mahaney said
the county's codes only specify the
height of a home, not the height of
a yard. Also, the county's onsite
inspectors don't address drainage at
individual lots. Commissioner Jim
B. Higginbotham said those are
issues the county needs to address,
in the future.
In the meantime, Mahaney sug-

Vickers has resigned to take a
job in Colorado. There have been
questions raised by city commis-
sioners about the value of his
incentive-based contract for man-
aging the Fernandina Beach Golf
Club.
Vickers has valued his annual
contract with the city at $127,151.
That includes a $16,000 annual
stipend for managing the golf
course, but does not include the
$16,000 stipend for managing the
airport.
Gooding is now paid an annual
salary of $48,354 as grants admin-
istrator, a 6 percent reduction from
the $51,440 she was to make this
year as grants administrator and
interim airport manager.
Gooding joined the city after
holding jobs as an urban' parks
administrator with the city of
Jacksonville, a staff analyst in the
city of Santa Clara, Calif., commu-
nity services division and as a long-
range planner with the city of
Franklin, Tenn.
She was named, briefly, as chief
planner for Fernandina Beach after
Mearns fired Anne Catinna from

Duffy has also been charged
with official misconduct and per-
jury. The charge against Branning
of tampering with a witness stems
from a statement he allegedly
obtained from the victim while he
was on duty as a police officer and
allegedly tampering with FBPD
Explorers records, said Burgess.
According to court documents,
Duffy's perjury charge is based on
an .allegedly false statement he
made on Feb. 24, when he denied
meeting with the victim after she
left the Explorers program.
Branning and Duffy have both
pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Ramia had not yet entered a plea.
According to Fernandina Beach
Police Chief Chip Hammond, the
victim told Capt James Thompson
in August 2004 that she had sexu-
al relations with the men.
Hammond said he asked the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement to investigate the alle-
gations. The FDLE investigation
was completed in July and the
results given to the State Attorney's
Office.
Prosecutors with the State
Attorney's Office decided to file
charges against Branning, Duffy
and Ramia on Sept 6.

For the past 25 years it has been my pleasure to serve you as your Family Physician. It has
been a blessing to watch your families grow, assist you during illness and encourage you
to lead a healthy lifestyle. Now it is time for me to serve the community in another way -
actually, an extension of family medicine, you might say.

As you know, for the past couple of years I have worked part time for Community Hospice
of Northeast Florida. I have decided to accept a full time position as an Associate Medical
Director effective October 1. [Iwill make home visits to Hospice clients and direct teams of
dedicated professionals as we assist patients and their families with end of life issues.

Fortunately, I will leave you in the very capable hands of my daughter-in-law, Dr. Diana
Twiggs and Physician Assistant, Mr. Art Forbes. They will provide you with the same qual-
ity of care that.I have tried to maintain. I sincerely appreciate your friendship and the con-
fidence you have placed in me over the years. While I will miss the opportunity to see you,
I am confident that the same compassionate care will continue.

Please pray for me as I accept this calling and enter a challenging new phase of my med-
ical practice.

Sincerely,
Donald B, twiggs, MD

Christian


book store


to close

ALICE WALSH
News-Leader

Jenilin's, a Christian book
store located in the 8 Flags
Shopping Center on South 14th
Street, is closing.
"We're selling down to the
bare walls by Sept. 30," said pro-
prietor Constance Bradley.
Jenilin's was once a card and
party store which relocated from
the Island Walk Shopping Center
on Sadler Road to the 8 Flags
Shopping Center in September
2002. The store began, selling
Christian books and artifacts,
with party supplies as a second-
ary stock. However, in spite of
an all-volunteer staff and low
overhead, sales have been dis-
appointing.
"We are the fifth Christian
book store that has tried to make
it at various locations on the
island, and all have failed finan-
cially," said Bradley.
"I pray that another Christian
book store will open here, but it
would have to be owned by a
chain in order to succeed.
However, it would not have the
ministering aspects of this store."
That included a coffee corner
where visitors could drop in, sit
and discuss matters of faith.
No information is available on
future plans for the business site.
However, Bradley intends to con-
tinue coordinating weddings and
providing associated services
such as tuxedo rentals and invi-
tations, doing business as
Weddings On Wheels. She will
work out of her home with a spe-
cial van stocked with supplies.
"You won't have to come to us,"
she says. "We'll come to you -
and Fm keeping an open mind for
new ideas."
Everything in the store, with
the exception of Bibles, is 20 per-
cent off retail price, until every-
thing is sold. "Due to higher ship-
ping costs. Bibles will be offered
at 10 percent reduction," explains
Bradley.

Cleaning up county's financial mess


Nassau County's financial
picture is a mess. But
that does not keep Mike
Mahaney from trying to
clean it up, one sweep at a time.
Mahaney is the new county
administrator. He inherited a
financial condition saddled with
enough debt to cross an accoun-
tant's eyes. Not to mention a
county landfill that's ready to
implode, a pervasive manage-
ment-by-crisis mentality and politi-
cal apocalypses that could be fod-
der for a Hollywood movie.
The county's financial rating
has been downgraded again.
Its $100 million budget continues
to run over into next year's tax
revenues. And now a state investi-
gation reveals a former county
employee stole more than $1 mil-
lion over a multi-year period, with-
out anyone noticing. That's what
you call running a tight financial
ship.
Mahaney is now at the con-
trols. He carries a cardboard box
of printouts around with him, and
passionately points out with his
black marker some progress in
the budget The cash, or liquid
assets, the county has on its
books for the new fiscal year
beginning in October is $16 mil-

lion up
from $10 mil-
lion.
This could
help prevent
departments,
such as fire
and rescue,
from running
out of money
as it did last
year. And that
could keep
the county
from having
to take money
from another
department,
or borrowing


against the anticipated taxes of
the next year.
Much of what Mahaney faces
is a legacy from prior administra-
tions. For instance, $2.3 million
goes out each year to pay interest
on a $32-million loan used to build
the new courthouse and jail. This
will continue for another 20 years.
Some of the departments are
unionized, with contracts that will
prevail for years. Mahaney can try
to renegotiate some of the terms,
but the unions do not have to
budge.
In the fire and rescue depart-

ment, the union contract allows
for quite a few employees to be
off from work at the same time,
often creating a shortage in staff.
This requires others to pick up
the load and results in over-
time pay.
Mahaney is proposing to hire
additional full-time workers who
can fill vacancies due to vacations,
sick leave, etc. He figures this
cost would be less, and more pre-
dictable.
There may be a solution to the
bloated county landfill. Mahaney
hopes that discontinuing the
inflow of trash from other coun-
ties will extend the landfill's life,
and specific user fees could help
meet financial obligations.
In yet another example of
Mahaney's attempts to juggle
county finances, he wants to
reduce expensive health care ben-
efits to new employees again,
to save money.

movie. Let's see, there's the

Protection has slapped the coun-
ty's hands on several occasions
for not following its rules.
And the opulent new court-
house, or annex as it is now
termed, is not located in the coun-
ty seat of Fernandina Beach.
Does it matter to anyone that
state laws require each county's
courthouse to be in the county
seat? This is a byproduct of coun-
ty and city commissioners having


as harmonious and functional of a
relationship as the Hatfields and
McCoys.
But don't mind us. We've just
been a little misguided over the
years. But those are bygone days.
There's a new sheriff of
finances in town to corral this
mess.
Steve Nicklas is a financial
adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.

DAY SEMINAR OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

*"THE EVOLUTION OF THE AMERICAN
PRESIDENCY"
Saturday, October 8, 2005, 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m.
St. Peter's Parish Hall Fee: $10
The U S. Constitution devotes only three
paragraphs to the office of the Presidency.
Virtually all aspects of the office that we think of
as "presidential" have evolved over the course of
American history.
Dr. Max Williams, professor emeritus of history

at Western Carolina University, will be our guest
lecturer for this special event. This seminar will
consider the development of the presidency from
the I 780's to the present, beginning with the
Constitutional basis for the Presidency and the
early (and often uneasy) relationships among the
President, the Congress and the Courts. We will
give special attention to the administrations of
George Washington. Thomas Jefferson, Andrew
Jackson. Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson and
the strong even "imperial" -presidents of the
20th century.


Dr. Williams received his undergraduate degree
at Duke University and his M A and Ph D. from
the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
He was Chair of the Department of History at
WCU. His fields of interest include constitutional
and political history, with a special interest in
southern history
Coffee and pastries will be served at 8:30 a.m.
The discussion will begin at 9 a.m. Please bring a
bag lunch; drinks will be provided.

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14,2005/NEWS-LEADER


late crime'
I am the mother of the two boys
(Quintin and Jackie Pearson) who
were brutally beaten by 15 to 20
black boys at Ten Acres Kraft
Athletic Club. This occurrence is
being labeled as a fight, when in
fact that is not at all what had
occurred. My two boys were hit
from behind with beer bottles and
continually beaten, kicked and
stomped in their heads and backs.
These boys were beaten continu-
ally while unconscious. That can
hardly be labeled as a fight. These
acts were beatings, a form of a hate
crime or assault with a deadly
weapon or attempted murder.
There are many labels that could
be placed on this crime and "fight"
is not one of them;
Both boys were affected by
what happened to them physically
and emotionally. They both suf-
fered extreme massive concussions
and bruised ribs and backs.
Quinton suffered a broken nose
and was in a coma for four days
and had to learn to breathe on his
own again. Not only is Quintin
affected physically but he is hurt
emotionally as well. He was under :
the impression that many of the
boys attending this post-celebra-
tion were his friends.
I I am ready for justice. There
was a meeting held on Aug. 30 at
the Peck Center explaining to par-


ents why their children were ques-
tioned by law enforcement at
Fernandina Beach High School
("Parents: Police betrayed them").
As you know I have made no men-
tion of race until now. I do not care
about the race of the boys who
attacked my sons, only that these
boys are punished for their acts of
crimes that were committed. I am
mentioning race now because this
seems to be a factor in how and
why this criminal act is being
hushed up, covered up and belittled
into a fight.
As I entered this meeting, law
enforcement stated, twice in a row,
'This is not a racial issue," yet as
the meeting progressed, the
NAACP members were eager to
make their presence known. Also
several black Americans stood
blurting out racial issues. One
woman couldn't understand why
my two white boys made the front
page of the newspaper. Why does
the black race need a group to pro-
vide a cup of courage such as this.
My two boys are white; the gang of
boys who brutally beat them is
black. It would be perceivable for
the NAACP to be involved if it were
two black boys brutally beaten by
a gang of whites, however that's
not the case. If there is no racial
issue then why is the NAACP here?
This was a hate crime that was
committed by one race of numer-
ous perpetrators, and executed on


only two white boys. I think that
deserves front page and continued
coverage until justice is served.
One black boy out of the entire
party (150 to 200) threw himself
on top of Quinton and cradled his
body to keep those boys from
killing him. I will be eternally grate-
ful to this boy. Allowing these boys
to get away with a hate crime such
as this will only encourage others.
There have been similar situations
like this in the past even at
Fernandina Beach High School.
Some of you parents know that
your children are the perpetrators
of this crime. Some of you parents
have children that witnessed it. In
fact, some of you parents have chil-
dren who are active on the FBHS
football team and were perpetra-
tors of this crime. As fpr Nassau
County, itis a relief tolknow that the
city and county care more about a
local high school football team than
justice. Rumors are that nothing
will be done for this barbaric hate
crime that almost left two dead. All
that matters is that there is talent on'
the high school football team.

County taxes
It seems to me that I read in
your paper a few weeks back that
the Nassau County Commissioners
were lowering the millage rate for
Nassau County ("County may cut
tax rate," July 15). And that our
county's assessed land values had
gone up a tremendous amount of
money. I thought that meant that
our tremendous growth had final-
ly caught up. I even thought that
finally we would see a turn in our
county budget and some relief to
the taxpayers of Nassau County.
Imagine my surprise when I
opened my Trim Statement and
discovered the truth.
When I opened our Trim
Statement I found that our assessed
value had gone up approximately
30 percent! So that asset value ris-
ing was not necessarily on the new
growth. It was a gift to us all; the
long-time taxpayers of Nassau
County.
And then when I looked closer,
I realized that the general fund mill-


age rate may (and I do mean may)
have gone down a fraction, but for
those of us who live in the county
and not one of the municipalities,
our municipal services millage rate
has shot up dramatically.
The MSF (Municipal Service
Fund) has been underfunded for
years. But the conservation was
always to adjust the millage rate
from the general fund (lower it)
and raise the MSF millage. This
would only offset each other and
have no effect on the taxpayers'
bottom line taxes. At least that was
what was discussed in previous
years. That is obviously not the dis-
cussion this year.
Yes, you can appeal to the Value
Adjustment Board on your
assessed values. And you can
attend the public hearings regard-
ing the millage rate. How much
good do you really think that will
do? Am I skeptical? You bet
This is the same commission
that raised the gas tax 5 cents and
may raise the landfill assessment to
$100. You can view the backup
information at www.nassau
clerk.com. There you will see that
the company that did the report
statesthatthe recommended $100
is only for this year and could go up
in the future. How much more can
the people of Nassau take?
With the nation's current gas
situation because of the destruc-
tion of Hurricane Katrina, the Fort
Lauderdale area is temporarily
removing their gas tax to help their
citizens with the outrageous gas
prices. If our commission is deter-
mined to raise the gas tax, which
they have already approved, why
.can't they wait for awhile before
implementing it?
When I have asked about budg-
et hearings to discuss the depart-
ments' budgets, I was told that
nothing had been scheduled. Are
we just. accepting the submitted
budgets' status quo, without the,
commissioners even looking at
their departments' budgets? How
can a decision be made on our mill-
age unless all of the facts are,
knovn?

commissioner)

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


I was saddened and frustrated
by a recent letter titled "Bad taste"
(Sept. .7) regarding Dickie
Anderson's column about hurri-
cane preparedness and what she
,and her husband would take with
them if they had to evacuate for a
hurricane. If the writer of that letter
checked her calendar against the
..date-that-Hurricane Katrina-hit,.
'Di''id' nh"and liss t!iippipih'' '
"would realize that Dickiewrote her
column before this disastrous
event, and she was simply reflecting
on what she and many of us would


The community's
backbone
Many of our local and state
headlines center on the explosion
in the housing market and the
abundance of building and growth
in both the residential and com-
mercial sectors. Responsible, struc-
tured growth provides an econom-
ic impetus to our community.
Another outgrowth of this build-
ing boon is the attendant demands
on infrastructure both existing
and new. Infrastructure are those
elements created to accommodate,
and affected by, increases in popu-
lation and building;
Both the city and county are
currently assessing their respec-
tive Land Development Regulations
(LDRs), and we applaud this dili-
gence in re-thinking and revising
these guidelines. Maintaining
updated LDRs to keep pace with
growth and demands shows vigi-
lance and vision. The county is see-
ing a new high school, several sub-
divisions and a surge of commercial
development Careful planning will
ensure the highest and best use of
available space and facilities.
We respectfully suggest that,
while evaluating plans for growth,
current city infrastructure demands
and availability also be considered.
Specifically, road and traffic pat-
terns need to be closely monitored.
Additionally, drainage in key areas
such as Southside, North Beach
and portions of First Avenue -'
needs to be diligently analyzed. A
dearth of sufficient drainage runs
the gamut from inconvenience to
disaster. The city would be well
advised to examine the current
drainage facilities; and use all due
haste to upgrade this system.
NMaintaining existing infra-
structure. while preparing for cre-
ation of new facilities, is another.

keep pace with our community's
ability to meet this challenge.

consider taking with us if we need-
ed to evacuate our own homes and
communities.
Hurricane Katrina is a terrible
natural disaster, and the last thing
that any of us-should be doing in
our own kinships and throughout
our nation is to be criticizing others
and placing blame on benevolent
people'like Dickie Anderson, who
has always been a kind and com-
passionate woman, a caring volun-
teer in many activities throughout
Amelia Island. Additionally, we
shouldn't be disparaging people
like the responsive volunteers of
the Red Cross, who are working
around the clock to help relocate
the victims of Katrina. And frankly,
we need to stop placing blame on
anyone -just pitch in and help as
we can, with money, supplies and
many prayers for the victims.
In my own family unit, we have
also prepared for hurricanes, as
has been instructed by media pam-
phlets: we make sure that we have
3 days of food and water for each
person, non-perishables like tuna
fish and peanut butter, and we also
put aside our family photo albums
and some special things that we
would take with us if we would be
inconvenienced by a hurricane for
a few days. And we also think about
some frivolous items that we might
take, like a bottle of wine or some
cookies or candy to take the edge
off a 3-4 day stint that the nuisance
of a hurricane would bring.
Wouldn't that be a perfect scenario?
To suffer a few inconveniences
before we returned to our beautiful
island unscathed?
Not I, nor Dickie nor anyone
could have predicted the appalling
devastation that Katrina brought
to New Orleans and Mississippi.
Our pathetic "hurricane prepared-
ness kits" are totally useless for a
real tragedy like that of Katrina.
And perhaps Dickie Anderson's
lighthearted column is a realwake
up call for all of us who live in a
hurricane-prone environment; mak-
ing us think about whatwe can all
do to help the victims and better
prepare ourselves if a hurricane
like Katrina would come our way.
We need not criticize people like
Dickie Anderson, who would do
anything to help another human
being in trouble. And we need not
place blame on people who are'
helping people,like the Red Cross,
nor is it prudent for us to become
vindictive toward our government
in the wake of this catastrophe.
Let's just stop the petty stuff and
help the victims through the dis-
.aster-and reconstruction. That's

Teed off

F ernandina Beach Commissioners are
spending entirely too much time dis-
cussing their golf game that is, how to
operate the Fernandina Beach Golf Club
and how much to compensate the golf pro.
Perhaps it's time for the city to get out of the
golf business.
Operating a municipal golf course perhaps
made sense 50 years ago when the game was
becoming an essential part of Americans' public
recreation. The Fernandina Beach course was first
on the island, and the only course for some time.
But that is no longer the case. There are now
six golf courses on' the island and two others just
off the island. Local golfers are not deprived of
opportunities to play.
The city operates its course as an enterprise
fund meant to emulate private business with
an incentive-laden contract for the golf pro.
But the course isn't a true business because of
its public subsidy, and city officials can't even fig-
ure out how much their golf pro's income is.
A true business would have set aside funds for a
new irrigation system needed for the course, but
this has not been done. The city may sell valuable
land to obtain.the funds needed.for this project,, ,.,
., Aru ir, icenLive-lade n.rt gouihpro coatectilWyseJdsaiI
n't ladle the'proceeds quite so heavily to the pro at r!
the expense of city coffers.
SAwell-managed enterprise would be sufficiently
transparent that the owners could figure out how
much they're paying the hired help.
We believe the city should turn over its course
to a private entity to operate under a long-term
lease. This entity would be responsible for all oper-
ations and maintenance, and it would retain all
profits minus an annual fee to the city.
The city would retain ownership of the land and
improvements and the contract would be up for
renewal every decade or so.
To keep prices low for golfers, greens fees.
could be established at one rate for all Fernandina
Beach residents, and the course could charge the
going fare for out-of-towners.
This is how many towns operate their golf
courses today.
There's something amiss when city officials
spend more time trying to figure how to maintain
affordable golf than they do affordable housing; a
truly daunting problem facing our town.
Our commissioners need to putt out and move
on to more important issues.


COMMUNITY THANKS

Historic event
We are happy to announce that the "Historic
District Picnic" on Sept. 4 was a huge success! The
event was due to the effort of many hard-working res-
idents and business owners within the historic dis-
trict, as another way to bring all our neighbors
together to get acquainted. While there were so
many people coming and going during the picnic, we
are sure there must have been over 80 people that
attended! Many long-time residents got a chance to'
visit again, and tell stories to the newcomers about
the good old days of Fernandina! There was plenty
of great food and fellowship.
A special thanks to Amelia Island Carriages for
the fun and informative carriage tours of this part of
the historic district, and to the neighbors here that
opened their homes for tours that day. Thanks also
to the hard-working volunteers that spread the word
and helped to make this event such a success.
Thanks to the Methodist church for loaning us the
tables, and to all those that brought the delicious
foods! Of course, thanks to all the neighbors that put
up with the traffic and parking!

' Hotel violates Beach Overlay District


For advocates of a "no more condominiums/
hotels/motels" approach to beachfront zon-
ing, this was a bad week. But to fully under-
stand just how bad it was, one would need to
go back several weeks and understand the tempo-
rary euphoria surrounding a city commission deci-
sion that appeared to support that community-friend-
ly position.
The proposal: The applicant wanted to build a 36-
room hotel just south of other Main Beach commer-
cial activities. The property is zoned commercial, but
a hotel would be a conditional use within that zone.
The property is currently being used as a residence,'
but residential use falls under the category of "non-
conforming" within a commercial zone.
The problem: The property is currently made up
of two separate lots and it lies within the Beach
Overlay District a zoning distinction that prohibits
combining lots for the purpose of development
The scene: The commission held a quasi-judicial
hearing; prospective witnesses were sworn in and
testimony was heard from the applicant, city staff
and audience members in favor of the project and
opposed. Commissioners would have to determine
sufficient "competent, substantial evidence" to deny
the application.
After hearing the evidence, various testimony,
planning staff recommendations and legal analysis
from the city attorney the commission voted 3-2 to
deny the applicant's request. Reasons given for the
denial: 1) it would violate city code, i.e., the beach
overlay district, and 2) it would change the "charac-
ter of the neighborhood."
Euphoria!
That euphoric state would be short-lived, howev-
er, because one of the commissioners on the prevail-
ing side, Joe Gerrity, wanted to reconsider the deci-
sion at the next commissioner's meeting.
Fast-forward to the commissioner's meeting on >
Sept. 6. The decision was revisited and this time,
with commissioner Gerrity changing his vote, the
oceanfront hotel was approved 3-2, commissioners
Leeper and Crow voting against.
A word now about Commissioner Gerrity: gener-
ally, since his election in April, Commissioner
Gerrity has been on the right side of land use/densi-
ty issues. He has consistently been opposed to
increasing densities and has asked the hard ques-
tions concerning comprehensive plan changes, zon-
ing modifications and LDR revision. The consistency

THE NO
'SPIN' ZONE


of his positions has been
much appreciated the
development of Crane Island
being a glaring exception, so
his flip-flop on this issue
remains a mystery.
In my opinion, the issues
should have never been
reconsidered the commis-
sion's majority was right the
first time. They had sufficient
competent, substantial evi-
dence to conclude that
1. Combining two separate
adjacent lots is prohibited by
the Beach Overlay District. As
the proponent and sponsor of
that district, I know its pur-


pose. It is designed to prevent developers from buy-
ing several adjacent beachfront lots, tearing down
the houses on those lots, combining them and build-
ing a hotel, or motel, or condominium on that now
enlarged piece of property.
The hotel will be built on two separate lots, com-
bined by the developer in order to make the proper-
ty large enough for development. Now, does that vio-
late the Beach Overlay District? Of course.
The city attorney obviously agrees with that
assessment. When the majority offered the violation
as evidence for denial the first time, she rendered no
advice to the contrary.
2. Replacing a residence with a 36-room hotel
changes the character of the neighborhood. The key
here is defining neighborhood. Some people would
say that the new hotel simply extends the existing
commercial use. a little further south, therefore not
changing the character of the neighborhood.
Others, like myself, consider the entire beach-
front a neighborhood. Some people would say that
the new hotel simply extends the existing commer-
cial use a little further south, therefore, not changing
the character of the neighborhood.
Others, like myself, consider the entire beach-
front a neighborhood. Our oceanfront is a singularly
unique and special place to this community, and one
of that neighborhood's most attractive characteris-
tics is the predominance of residences homes,
instead of hotels, motels and condominiums. So does
the addition of a hotel change the character of this
neighborhood? In my opinion, yes, it does.


Again, the city attorney agrees, offering no advice
to the contrary.
The advice of the city attorney is critical in land
use cases. Had she stated that the competent, sub-
stantial evidence threshold had not been reached,
the door would have been.opened for a legal chal-
lenge to the commission's decision. Obviously then,
in her opinion, the majority's evidence at the first
hearing had met that threshold.
The most disturbing aspect of the commission's
decision is the precedent it sets. What will the com-
mission's decision be next time a developer wants
them to, you know, "overlook" the prohibitions of the
Beach Overlay District? I can hear, it now: "All I want
to do is combine several oceanfront lots, right next
to the existing commercial zoning, so that I can build
a 75-room hotel. Ifs just extending commercial use a
little further south, and the property taxes generated
by my condo dwarfs the contributions made by
these seven or eight houses, and imagine, 75 fami-
lies shopping in the local economy. How can you say
no particularly since you've ignored the district
before?" Certain commissioners would injure them-
selves trying to get to the microphones fast enough
to be the first to offer the motion for approval.
A word of thanks to commissioners Crow and
Leeper; on this issue they were able to avoid the
most obvious pitfall of case-by-case decision-making
regarding land use issues: tunnel vision, which pre-
vents one from seeing the long-term effects of a deci-
sion and, instead, focuses on the immediate and
short-term implications.
I hope that my worst fears are not realized.
I hope that no developers want to combine ocean-
front lots and, bit by bit, lot by lot, house by house,
consume our oceanfront so that we look exactly
like so many other Florida communities; so many
other Florida communities.who've allowed the "char-
acter of their oceanfront neighborhood" to be
destroyed in favor of short-term, immediate financial
gain.
I used to count on the Beach Overlay District and
the good sense of local elected representatives to
prevent that from happening. I guess I can't count on
that so much anymore it appears that economics
is the sole driver of land use decision-making, and
there's just too much money to be made here.

'MaVynee's Fives'
I moved to Amelia Island in January 2000 and one
of the first people I met was MaVynee Betsch. The
Beach Lady was a neighbor and became a best friend.
She had a great knowledge of the environment and of
Nassau County. She was an-engaged, active citizen who
spoke her mind on important issues. People listened
when she spoke because she had a charming wit, in-
depth knowledge and she really cared about Amelia
Island, American Beach and the people who live here.
She seemed to enjoy educating me and encouraging
me to be as active as she had been.
I had the opportunity to see her regularly: because
Sof our common interest in protecting the beautiful
( landriWni!vged on we.attended many county etLt-
t-ings-together and we often did our errands together.
I enjoyed every minute with her and saw on our week-
ly errands how much the people of Amelia Island real-
ly loved her. Everywhere we went she was met with a
happy smile, a wave and a "Hi, Beach Lady." It was like
traveling with a celebrity and on this island she
was. I know she was very happy the last few years see-
ing so much being done for the environmental and his-,
toric preservation of her beloved American Beach-
and I am sure she will be watching to see that we fol-
low through on the good work that has been started.
My life on Amelia Island has been much more
rewarding and interesting for having had the oppor-
tunity to know her. My wife Jane and I will miss her
greatly.
As part of our preparation for the American Beach
70th Anniversary celebration this past January,
MaVynee was considering sharing some history she
connected with the number five. This was one of the
ways she helped make history fun. I thought she
would like me to share "MaVynee's Fives:"

descendent)

Franklin

Our beloved Beach Lady
In her own words... "She's evolved into a butterfly
and is flying down on the beach."
Tears finally streamed down my cheeks Monday
afternoon as I spotted two brightly colored, orange,
black-and-white-winged Monarch butterflies, engaged
in a playful mating ritual, descend on native, yellow
daisy blossoms left in a clay pot in front of MaVynee
Betsch's ("the Beach Lady's") house at American
Beach. The weight of my loss was finally, freely
released.
Tiredness and wanting to "be there" for MaVynee
with a hopeful, uplifting spirit, as I'd been on countless
other occasions over the past 10 years of our special
but occasionally turbulent relationship, had held back
the deepest emotions until then.
Several hours earlier, MaVynee's body was car-
ried away in an undertaker's white hearse through a
procession of deeply-saddened, teary-eyed admirers-
minus her incredible 7-foot-long coil of thick hair
which she'd grown for 30 years. She'd requested that

her hair be lovingly removed by family following her
departure (MaVynee did few things the "normal" way)
and be incorporated into a piece of artwork to be dis-
played at the future AL. Lewis American Beach muse-
um.
The hearse decorated with MaVynee's favorite
orange streamers hung by two of her closest sista's,
Carol Alexander and Erica McCarthy carried
MaVynee's body to a funeral home for a Tuesday cre-
mation.
Cancer had returned, following surgery for stom-
ach cancer in 2002, and had been slowly eating away'
at MaVynne's body in spite of her best natural reme-
dies and treatments. How unfitting for a woman who'd
worked tirelessly to pressure industry and govern-
ment to clean up toxins in our environment for most
of her adult life. In MaVynne's case, genetics may
have also played a role.
During a future ceremony, MaVynee's ashes will be
scattered at American Beach on its sacred, 60-foot-
tall sand dune MaVynee named NaNa (West African
Twi dialect for "grandmother") and in her beloved
Atlantic Ocean a short distance from her house -
just across from the coast of Africa in MaVynee's esti-
mation.
MaVynee was not alone in her final hours. She was
surrounded by an intensity of love and support that few
will ever experience. Her life, work and deep bonds
with a number of "kindred spirits" commanded that!
Following an emotional ceremony on Sunday
evening at American Beach, attended by over 150 peo-
ple in which MaVynee was briefly dipped in the cool
waters of the Atlantic, she was taken to rest in her
upstairs apartment bed facing the ocean, where
the cool sea breezes from a northeastern (her favorite)
would caress and nourish her soul till its later depar-
ture.
Family and many of her closest friends Dr.
Johnnetta B. Cole, J.D. Staton Jr., Carol and Gibran
Alexander, Erica McCarthy, Peri Betsch, Stetson
Kennedy, Ok Sun & Volume Burks, Frances,
Marquetta, Tom Howell, Mr. T, two great nurses,
myself and others that I undoubtedly missed or can't
name given my near sleepless state of the past two days
- attended the ceremony and came to visit as dusk
descended on the beach. Orange and pink hues paint-
ed the western sky and silhouetted the magnificent
NaNa.
Many came, including myself, with no knowledge
of MaVynee's sudden just a day earlier "turn for
the worse" in the words of filmmaker and MaVynee's
close companion, Erica McCarthy. It had happened
way too fast. A few of us stayed with MaVynee late into
the night and even fewer until the wee hours of Sept
5.
MaVynee was never alone. We held her warm hand,
gently kneaded her feet with her favored, aromatic,
sacred and American Indian revered white-sage oil. We
lovingly stroked and caressed her tired and drawn -
but still proud face and whispered words of endear-
ment as we took turns sitting next to her and leaning
caringly over her throughout the night as pearlescent
stars glistened out over theocean.
Her eyes spoke of understanding, but she could not
vocally respond. She felt no pain. Sister Johnneta and
J.D., close by her side throughout the night, made

sure of that with her drops of pain medication, though
her breathing was labored at times.
The eco-warrior, heart and soul of American Beach,
African-goddess worshipping MaVynee Oshun Belcb,
closed her eyes and-sighed a last, deep breath before
her spirit finally departed her body at 6:50 a.m., Sept
5, in the company of several of her most-loved ones.
Ill always love MaVynee the Beach Lady. Ill miss
driving her thousands of miles, countless times from
her American Beach home to Fran's Health Foods on
Amelia Island, to many special events and public hear-
ings, and even (on several occasions) all the way up to
St Helena Island; S.C., for the Gullah-Geechee Festival
- in my aging, non-air-conditioned car (MaVynee
favored "natural" air).
One of her favorite short drives was to visit the
ancient, gnarled Red Cedar trees at the cemetery near
Old Town, Fernandina. Their massive, twisted trunks
reminded me of her thick, curving hair.
MaVynee used to teasingly and affectionately refer
to me as her "chauffeur." We laughed and I got used
to it. I guess I'll always be "driving Ms. MaVynee," at
least in my dreams, or perhaps more correctly be
driven by the same passion that drove her for human
justice and peace and for protection of the Earth.
Ill continue to love MaVynee for what she shared
with me and for what she did with her life. I stand with
many others in honoring MaVynee for her pursuit of
justice and cultural preservation for black American
Beach residents, for African-American history and
culture, too often neglected or marginalized by main-
stream society, and for the same for American-Indians.
We honor her also for protection of the Earth and
all the creatures of the Earth and the Oceans includ-
ing her favorite, highly endangered Right Whales,
one of which was named "MaVynee" in her honor.
She inspired many of us to greater action than we
thought capable. Her memory will keep inspiring.
In an America still split by race and class, as wit-
nessed by the recent, largely inexcusable, deadly dis-
aster in New Orleans, MaVynee and her large, extend-
ed family of multi-racial friends of varying
socio-economic status, showed a different possibility
for the larger society.
And yes, I'll always lovingly think of her when but-
terflies appear. Only land-raping developers need fear

Void in our hearts
The passing of MaVynee Betsch leaves a void in
the hearts of those who knew and loved her. She most
definitely did not take the beaten path through her life's
ventures and pursuits and causes she did allow
most of us who chose to see our own reflections and
then say "look again baby be true and see what
could be." Another era and chapter has come to a
close for Amelia Island. The times they are indeed "a-
changin'."

Who will take up the torch?
Of all the tributes written about MaVynne, "It's too
quiet without the Beach Lady's Voice" (Sept 9), writ-
ten by Glenda S. Jenkins, was the most meaningful. The
staff writer captured the very essence of this magnif-
icent woman who lived, breathed and fought to
preserve God's creation.
Who will take up the torch and continue the battle
to preserve American Beach? "Like the Apostle Paul,
you fought the good fight, Beach Lady, you kept the
faith!"
I pray that at the memorial service the torch will be
passed to a person of vision who will be dedicated to
the work of the museum and to fighting for preserva-
tion.

City seeks new golf pro co

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader Howwe stack up


Fernandina City Commission-
ers have directed staff to consult
with golf pro John Vickers to devel-
op a new contract for the individual
who will take over his position.
"What I was going to suggest is
a way to mold this new contract
into what you want," City Manager
Bob Mearns told the commission.
"That's what John can help us with
... I think he's a good source for
information."
On Sept. 6 the commission
extended 'Vickers' contract
through December. Vickers
resigned as golf
pro, amid ques-
tions about his
total compensa-.
tion, to accept a
similar position
in Colorado.
"Nobody
here knows
Vickers exactly how,
much Mr.
Vickers makes
except Mr. Vickers," Commission-
er John Crow said. "Mr. Vickers
can advise us as well as anybody
on how to sharpen that contract
to the city's benefit"
"I think the crux of the issue
hasn't been so much how much
money I make," Vickers said. "It's
is the golf course really making

its fair share."
He can show the commission
"some things you can do to recap-
ture some money for the golf
course," Vickers said. "You can
structure the contract so that you
can expect that person to make a
certain range in terms of total com-
pensation."
The golf pro "has done a great
job at the golf course," Vice Mayor
Beano Roberts said, commending
Vickers for his management style
and business thinking. .
"I'dlike very much to have him
have some input into the next per-
son who would be chosen," he
said. '
"I want some incentive for our
golf pro," Commissioner Joe
Gerrity said, noting that Vickers
kept the golf course afloat finan-
cially in the past "I think its an
enterprise fund. Its there to make
money and the person that's in
charge of it, if it does well, should
also profit from it"
Butwithout an audit, the city is.
not prepared to make an informed
decision about what compensation


the next golf professional should
receive, Commissioner Bill Leeper
said.
"I don't think we as a commis-
sion can really make a decision on
what we want to do until we find
out how much money can be made
at the golf course," Leeper said.
"Until we know exactly how much
money the city is losing or can
gain by putting back into that golf
course, I don't see how we can
make a decision."
Leeper surveyed 10 Florida golf
courses of which he noted two,
Winter Haven Municipal Golf
Course and Jacksonville Beach
Golf Club, have golf professionals
working with incentives in addi-
tion to salary.,
A salaried department head or
manager at the city's golf course is
preferable, Leeper said.
"Most have a salary structure
or department head anywhere
ranging from 835,000 up to 874,000
a year," he said.
Six of the municipalities operate
their restaurant or pro shop while
three lease these businesses.


ntract

Vickers reported that his con-
tract with the city was valued at
$127,151 in 2004. He is contractu-
ally required to pay the city 5 per-
cent of pro shop and food and bev-
erage sales, and reported earning
$238,721 from food and beverage
sales and $161,923 from the pro
shop.
Gerrity said he is not in favor
of the city operating its pro
shop.
"I would like to see the golf pro
run the golf course and possibly
run the golf shop and pay us a roy-
alty off of the golf shop and per-
haps bid the restaurant out to
lease," he said.
"If we're going to lease it out, it
should be at the going rate,"
Leeper said. '"his is what you pay
every mohth regardless of if you
make anything or not"
"Keep in mind it wasn't mak-
ing, anymoney to start with until
he got here," Crow said. "But he
has turned it around to where
it is contributing to the general
fund."
Mearns and humanrresources
director Robin Marley have met
with a PGA representative who
will help the city find a replace-
ment for Vickers using a database:
of 15,000 eligible applicants.
An audit of Vickers earnings
"is in process" by the city's comp-
troller, Patti Clifford, Mearns said.

uled to be considered tonight by
the city's Planning Advisory Board.
"I have to drive down the park-
way every day, and IHfeel like I'm
taking my life into my hands" as
she leaves her neighborhood to
get there, Muhich said. She
plans to be there to give her point
of view when the planning board
meets at 6 p.m. in City Hall, 204
Ash St.
It will consider future land use
map changes for '"Townes of
Amelia" and "Lynndale Lakes."
Townes of Amelia is proposed
to be 304 townhouses on 38
acres on the northeast corner of
Amelia Island Parkway and Bailey
Road.
Lynndale Lakes is a proposed
184-unit condominium complex on
24 acres on the northwest corner
of Amelia Island Parkway and
Lynndale Road.
The Planning Advisory Board
voted unanimously June 22 not to
approve a comprehensive plan
change to allow residential devel-
opment of Lynndale Lakes, which
is in an'area near the airport zoned
for industrial uses.
The planning board voted 6-1
July 13 to reject a proposed
land use ,change from commercial
to residential for Townes of Amelia.
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners have overruled the plan-
ning board in supporting the two
proposed developments.
The planning board is also
scheduled to consider a future land
use map change that would allow
Amelia Park to expand onto 12
acres at 1810 S. Fifth St.
The planning board also will
consider a comprehensive plan pol-
icy that would enable developers to
build more market-rate units than
currently allowed in developments
if they also designate affordable
housing units.
For each affordable housing
,unit, developers could build an
additional "bonus" market-rate unit
up to a maximum of 10 "bonus"
units.

County is making headway on budget


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader.

The Nassau County Commis-
sion held its first public hearing on
the proposed 2005-6 budget Sept 7
but heard little from the public.
Only one citizen spoke at the
meeting, and that was to praise the
county for restoring the book budg-
et to the library system.
That was in stark contrast to the
last budget public hearing in
September 2004, when more than
25 people spoke, many of them
upset about an increase in the mill-
age rate.
There was a very different tone
at last week's meeting, when resi-
dents were told their taxes will actu-
ally decrease during the 2005-6 fis-



Yulee lays


foundation


for its new


high school


Community meetings are being
held to lay the foundations for a new
Yulee high school scheduled to open
in August 2006.
The next meeting is scheduled
for Thursday in the Yulee Middle
School cafeteria beginning at 6 p.m.
Principal Diane Romon is seek-
ing input from the community about
the identity of the school.
"It's important we get input from
the community." said Romon in a
press release. "This school is going
to represent and reflect the com-
munity and its values. It's important
we get feedback from our students.
parents and the community at every
step of this process."
The first meeting Sept. 1 focused
on the design of the school crest '
and colors for the new high school.
Romon told those in attendance
the new high school plans to have a
full athletic department and offer
as many extracurricular activities
as the student body will support.
'We are confident we can have
top-notch academic and competitive
athletic programs the community
will be proud to support," she said.
Romon said construction is
ahead of schedule and displayed
pictures of theschool's band room,
which was nearingicompletionnt.
Richard Bell, Jr., a representa-
tive from Jostens, directed a dis-
cussion focusing on the school crest,
which will be incorporated into
School rings among other items.
Bell said he would bring back
three to five initial designs for the
community to critique before final
selection is made.

begins Oct 1.
Commission
Chair Ansley
Acree praised the
work of County
Administrator
Mike Mahaney
Mahaney and clerk's office
Finance Director
Ted Selby for
making the difference.
"They were presenting things
to this board as they came up so
the decisions could be made," she,
said. "I feel very good about this
budget. We're definitely making
headway."
The countywide millage rate was
set for 6.43 mills, which is a signif-
icant decrease of 1.25 mills from


last year.
However, residents in unincor-
porated areas of the county will see
a much smaller reduction in their
millage rate, from 8.5 mills to 8.25
mills. The reduction is about 10 per-
cent more than the rollback'rate,
which is the rate the county could
assess and still receive the same
amount of taxable revenue as the
previous year.
It amounts to a savings of about
$50 a year on a house with a taxable
value of $200,000 after the home-
stead exemption.
SThe same homeowner in an
incorporated area of the county -
Fernandina Beach, Callahan or
Hilliard would see greater sav-
ings. The decrease in their mill rate
would amount to a savings of about

$250 a year.
Residents in unincorporated
areas pay higher county taxes
because they're taxed for addition-
al county services such as county
fire, emergency management, ani-
mal control and growth manage-
ment
The taxing fund that pays for
these services, the municipal serv-
ice fund, will increase by 1mill this
year.
While ad valorem taxes will
decrease significantly for some this
year, all residents are paying more
in other areas. The county will
impose an additional 5-cent gas tax
effective Jan. 1 and the annual res-
idential landfill assessments could
more than double, from $45 to $100,
for all county households.


The county commission is
scheduled to approve the final budg-
et at 7 p.rm. Sept. 26 at the County
Building on Pages Dairy Road in
Yulee.
Moments prior to the Sept. 7
public hearing, Mahaney summa-
rized several positives in this year's
budget, but stressed the county "is
not there yet"
He highlighted an increase in
reserve for contingencies from
about half a million dollars to
more than $1 million in the gener-
al fund. The county also increased
cash to be carried forward by 150
percent or more in the reserve
funds and the municipal service
funds.
In the past, much of the county's
1-cent sales tax revenue was used to


cover significant shortfalls in the
municipal service fund. '
By freeing up that 1-cent rev-
enue, Mahaney said, the county was
able to budget more than $1.6 mil-
lion in capital projects this year -
almost 300 percent more than in
last year's budget.
Most of the audience at
Wednesday's public hearing were
county employees and department
heads.
Commissioner Tom Branan
thanked them for working with
Mahaney and the clerk's office
since May to trim their budgets.
"I'd like to extend a debt of grat-
itude for a job well done," he said.
"You're helping to steer the county
in the right direction."

'Life goes on' for victims of hurricane


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
"Don't forget us."
That's the message Melissa
Rolio of Slidell, La., wanted to stress
after spending several days with 11
other family members here in
Fernandina Beach.
It's been more than two weeks
since Hurricane Katrina slammed
the Gulf Coast, displacing hundreds
'of thousands of people. A few have
come here to Nassau County, many
staying with relatives and friends.
The outpouring of support has
been overwhelming, Rolio said.
Total strangers see her license plate
in the parking lot and offer to buy
her family groceries, clothes or give
them a hug.
One lady simply walked up to
her sister, Melynda Brown of Abita
Springs, La., and gave her $20.
"I just cried," Brown said. "You
don't know what to say to them,
and they don't know what to say to
you."
She and other people who came
here after Katrina said they could-
n't ask for more hospitable treat-
ment.
But people from the hurricane-
devastated areas will need help for
more than a week. More than a few
months. Maybe even years.
"Ifts like a death in the family,"
Rolio said. "Everybody comes to
your house the first week or two,

Across town 24-year-old
Amanda Barry of Mandeville, La.,
still had not heard from her 6-year-
old son, Dominic Baker, or his
father Russell as of last Wednesday.
She's been staying in her sis-
ter's Fernandina Beach apartment
with her brother John Baker and
their mother Karen Etheredge of
Slidell, La.
Her father is still in Slidell, work-
ing for the city repairing pumps to
drain the flooded areas. Etheredge
said her house is relatively undam-
aged, and she will probably go back
- it's just a matter of when.
But for Barry, 24, and Baker,
19, it's unlikely they'll return to the
New Orleans area anytime soon..
Baker's job at the auto shop,
won't be there because the build-
ing's literally not there. Barry got
her "dream job" as a restaurant
-recruiter in New Orleans a week
before the storm hit. Now her boss
is in Dallas and said she won't be
going back.
So far Barry's not sure.
"What would we do?" she said.
"Where would we work? There's
nothing there." d
Baker said he doesn't plan on


going back. He grew up in Slidell,
but everything he's known the past
19 years is gone.
"I don't even know if I want to go
back," he said. "I lived there my
whole life, and nearly everyone I
know has left and doesn't know if
they're coming back. It just won't
be the same. It will never be the
same."
Both families said they are get-
ting use to the "new normal," but in
some ways the stress is getting
worse. Brown said her mind often
just goes blank. The days roll into
one another. She talks to people
she knows from Louisiana on the
phone, and just cries.
Watching the news, has become
unbearable.
"You see these people on the
news who have nothing, who are
dying, and you're just thankful for
what you've got," she said.
Brown said her son's father is in
the National Guard and has said
there are "too many dead bodies
there to count."
"You wonder if it's anyone you
know," she said. "Who are these
people?" -

Hurricane evacuees are enrolling in local schools


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Ever since Hurricane Katrina devastated parts of the
Gulf Coast, evacuees have been trying to establish
robts in other areas after learning there is nothing to
go home to, For the younger evacuees, this means
enrolling in a new schooL
At least 25 students from Louisiana, Mississippi
and Alabama have enrolled in Nassau County schools
over the past two weeks. On Monday morning, Andreu
Powell, coordinator of intervention and prevention for
the school district, said that number could increase.
"Thi.. I-. ,, very fluid situation," he said.
All florida schools have temporarily dropped reg-
ular entry reqtiiremrients for hurricane victims who
want to enriill in s.iihools, including imninIrii/aflnio

And lite'- ir, ii 'pii, I wnw-t ih lIit-i .- i-mivnyhave

an unexpected development in their lives.,


Powell said school guidance counselors are work-
ing to get students, the "vast majority" of whom are stay-
ing with friends or relatives in the area, the help they
need.
Powell said extra assistance is available for many stu-
dents because they qualify, under federal guidelines, as
being "homeless."
"Some people don't like that term," he said. "But if
you have been displaced, you are still considered home-
less." That means the students are automatically eligible
for free or reduced meals at the schools, and they can
be eligible for other assistance including free dental
care, counseling, food and medical care.
"Ifs a case-by-case scenario," Powell said. "We find
out what they need."
In addition, all schools provide students with pen-
cils, paper, backpacks and other essential school equip-
ment. The Full Service School in Yulee offers a food
bank and access to some free personal hygiene items.


Powell said students and their parents should con-
tact their school's guidance counselors for assistance,
or "they can call my office directly," at 491-9883.
For a school system already struggling to meet
class-size reduction requirements, the influx of new stu-
dents could herald a change in policy for out-of-coun-
"ty transfers.
At the Sept 8 meeting of the Nassau County School
Board, board member Kathy Burns suggested impos-
ing a limit on out-of-county transfers into Nassau County
schools in light of the new students from the Gulf
Coast area.
No action was taken on the suggestion that evening,
but Nassau County School Superintendent John Ruis
did say there could be some policy changes soon.
"(Out-of-county transfers) is something thatwe are
going to be taking greater oversight of in the near
future," he said.

Bryceville man found dead,


A Bryceville man was found
dead of an apparent suicide
Monday morning in his office at
the University of North Florida.
Richard Wayne O'Bryant, 30,
was the managing editor of the
UNF student newspaper, the
Spinnaker. .
According to UNF spokesper-
son Sharon Ashton, a custodian
found a note on the outside of
O'Bryant's office door that said


"Do not open please call police."
Ashton said O'Bryant appeared
to have hanged himself, but police
were still investigating the
incident and an official ruling of
his cause of death had not been
made.
O'Bryant was in his third year
at the weekly newspaper, and he
was a junior at UNF. Ashton said
he was majoring in communica-
tions.


OSHA cites firm after death


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
An investigation by the federal
Occupational Safety and Health
Administration launched after the
work-related accident that killed
17-year-old Adam Kelley resulted in
citations for six violations issued
to M.T. Kelley Electrical Service.
Kelley died June 9 after he fell
from the bucket of an elevated
bucket truck while working for the
company at Mariner's. Walk
Condominiums in Fernandina
Beach. He fell approximately 20
feet to the ground and was taken to
Shands Jacksonville, where he died
that day.
The company was not ordered
to pay any fines and will not be sub-
jected'to any other penalties. OSHA
Area Director James D. Borders
said the decision to not levy finan-
cial penalties was based on the fact
that company owner Michael
Kelley was Adam's father.
Borders said fines for the viola-
tions could have ranged from $100
to $7,000.
"Every fatality is kind of
unique," Borders said. 'This is not
the only time we've investigated
the death of a family member ...
but it is rare."
According to the citation notifi-.
cation, an aerial lift was being used
as a crane to pull wooden light
poles out of the ground and replace
them with aluminum light poles
when the accident happened.
Borders said a crane should have
been used to do that work.
Borders said the aerial lift was


also out-of-date.
"What was ...
unusual about this
case is a very old
(lift)," he said.
"'here's really not
too much infor-
mation about it
Kelley anymore ... the
manufacturer
doesn't have a
manual on how to (maintain) it and
what it should be used for."
The report also said Adam
Kelley was not using fall protection
when the accident occurred.
M.T. Kelley Electrical Service
was issued a citation for those vio-
lations as well as for the following
offenses:
overloading the boom of the
aerial lift,
not having upper and lower
controls labeled,
inadequate training, and
failure to initiate and main-
tain a .safety and health program.
Three of the violations -
employees not using fall protec-
tion, overloading the boom and
using the aerial lift as a crane -
were corrected during the investi-
gation.
'"That often happens, and
we encourage it very much,"
Borders said of violations that are
corrected before the investigation


is completed.
Proper training for employees
was to be initiated by Tuesday, and
a safety and health program is to be
in place by Sept 27.
Borders said it's possible a
check could be done in the future
to ensure the violations were cor-


rected.
: Adam Kelley was a member of
the Fernandina Beach High School
Marching Band, the Boy Scouts
and the Fernandina Beach Optimist
Club. He would have been a senior
at FBHS this school year.

FHP wins 'top troop' awards


LIL SPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent
Florida Highway Patrol Public
Affairs Officer Lt. Bill Leeper
announced Friday that the FHP
was recently recognized for awards
that it has won.
"The FHP has won these two
awards, which are very special
within the law enforcement com-
munity," he said.
The Florida Highway Patrol's
Troop "G", for which Leeper is
spokesperson, was selected as hav-
ing the top traffic safety and
enforcement program in the state
of Florida for 2004.
Troop "G" has headquarters in


Jacksonville and covers Nassau,
Duval, St. Johns, Flagler, Clay,
Putnam, Bradford, Baker and
Union counties.
Leeper said that Troop "G" is a
three-time winner of FHP's "Top
Troop" award and this moved them
into a competition category against
past winners for municipal police
agencies and sheriff offices across
Florida. Their award in this year's
"Champions Class" designates
Troop "G" as "The Best of the
Best" for all Florida agencies in
2004, he said.
"The efforts by the men and
women of Troop 'G' who serve the
citizens and visitors of Northeast
Florida, truly do make a difference


in saving lives," said Leeper.
In addition to the "Top Troop"
award, The International
Association of Chief's of Police
recognized the Florida Highway
Patrol as having the top traffic safe-
ty and enforcement program in the
country during 2004, in the cate-
gory of State Police/Highway
Patrols with 1,601-3,000 officers.
Florida Highway Patrol
Director Col. Chris Knight will
receive the award at the IACP's
Annual Conference in Miami Sept.
23-28.
This is the third time FHP has
won this award since 1994. It rec-
ognizes the outstanding accom-
plishments of law enforcement


agencies across the United States
and their efforts to make their
communities safer.
Each year, traffic crashes in the
United States claim over 40,000
lives and cost Americans over $150
billion.
However, far more people sur-
vive these crashes than die, some-
times with lifelong debilitating
injuries. Over 3 million injuries
were documented in police-report-
ed crashes during 2004.
The IACP Law Enforcement
Challenge program, targets five
major traffic safety priorities:
Agency Policy, Officer Training,
Public Information and Education,
Enforcement and Effectiveness.

Yarberry's boyfriend told police an
acquaintance gave her methadone
on Saturday. Methadone is an opi-
ate prescribed to people undergo-
ing treatment for addiction to other
opiates such as heroin and mor-
phine.
Police talked to the acquain-
tance, who reportedly told them
he gave Yarberry 10 milligrams of
methadone that had been pre-


scribed to him about noon on
Saturday because she was com-
plaining of joint pain.
Later that evening, the man told
police Yarberry had a seizure, but
she didn't go to the hospital. He
said he last saw Yarberry about 3
a.m. Sunday, when she was "con-
scious and awake" and said she
"felt fine," according to the report.

When he returned to the store
about 9:30 a.m. Sunday, he found
the front door was open. When he
went inside, he found the cash

ently took $400 from an envelope
inside the store and $100 from

and no employees in the restau-
rant. According to a Nassau

Oh rats!Food for snakes, and food for thought


PAT FOSTER-TURLEY
For the News-Leader


Sylvester, our backyard black
racer snake, is definitely gone from
his birdhouse on my backyard trel-
lis. So, too, are the new inhabitants
- they just moved out too. I dis-
covered these two facts simulta-
neously one hot summer day. For
awhile now I have been missing
sights of Sylvester in his house,
and also have casually noted some
dry leaves protruding from the
birdhouse door hole.
Only now could I put two and
two together.
One Sunday afternoon, I was
sitting at my patio table when I
heard a commotion of branch
rustling and squeaks in the but-
terfly area of my backyard. I hur-
ried over to the garden to find a yel-


A Norway rat
peers out of
its birdhouse
nest.
PAr FOSTER -TURLEY
FOR THE
NEWS-LEADER


low rat snake and a squirrel (I
thought at first) in mortal combat.
By the time I got back out with my
camera 30 seconds or less -
the dispute had been resolved. The
snake was moving along the trellis,
with the rat (as it turned out)
behind it biting its tail and thus
urging it away.
I had expected the photos I
would get would be of a rat snake
constricting a rat, but not this time.
This time, the rat won.
Not only did the rat win, but
then for a half hour I watched it
come back to the birdhouse
(Sylvester's old house) six times, to
each time retrieve a blind baby.
The rat, a normally reclusive, noc-
turnal species, was worried about
my presence, and snuck up to the
birdhouse from the back bushes,
eyeing me all the while.

Then, despite my proximity,
once she was in reach, in a quick
dai-t she jumped into the house
and even quicker, jumped back out
with a baby in her mouth and car-
ried it off under a nearby bush
where she had stashed the others.
The mother rat came by a seventh
time, but left the house baby-less,
thus the photo.
The mother did indeed have
another baby this one was hang-
ing on the trellis by its leg, most
likely having been dislodged from
its nest during the rat and snake
battle.
Maybe the rat even had an
eighth baby, who knows, that the
snake did manage to take off with.
I watched the baby hanging there,
and it squeaked occasionally, bring-
ing the mother back to the area,
underneath the trellis, but she did-
n't seem to see it. IT watched as:long
as I could stand the baby squeak-
ing, hanging by its underarm on
the bush it seemed cruel -
even though I knew I shouldn't
mess with it, or change the course
of nature. After all, this baby would
certainly feed a hungry snake and
so be it.
But my instinctive sympathies
remained with the mammal, the
rat baby, and not the potential
snake that might find it, or even
the yellow-rat snake that was
chased off.
I gently nudged the baby rat
and it fell from the vine onto the
low shrubbery below..
At this change in position, it also
let out its loudest cry yet. The.
mama ran right over only a few
feet away from my vantage point,
located the baby and ran off with it
in its. mouth.
The poor rat mother now has to
make up a new household, and
move its babies to somewhere
where the yellow rat snake, or
Sylvester even, will not find them.
But, now in retrospect, it is more


"poor me" that I'm thinking of.
However much I appreciate this
mother rat's courage and dedica-
tion, most likely these rats are
Norway rats, a pest species, in my
back yard.
Old World-introduced Norway
rats are a scourge of our country,
carrying diseases and causing
damage to crops and stored food
wherever they are found. These
rats can reproduce prolifically, with
as many as 12 litters per year of up
to a dozen in each litter. In appear-
ance they look similar to our native
wood rats (aka pack rats) and I
kept looking and re-looking at my
photos and field guides trying to
convince me that it was wood rats.
in my back yard, not Norway rats.
Without the rat in hand, it was dif-
ficult to tell if the tail was haired
(wood rat) or hairless (Norway.
rat) or exactly how long the tail
was in relation to the body. In col-
oration, the wood rat has a whiter
underside than the Norway rat,
with bigger ears and smoother fur,
and for awhile these facts con-
vinced me. But then I found an
indisputable fact. Wood rats only
have about two to four young and
a maximum of six young. My back-
yard rat clearly had at least seven
babies, which I watched her relo-
cate, one by one.
So a Norway rat it is. The only
good thing about having her and
her brood here, there's plenty of
food for Sylvester, should' he"
return, and the yellow-rat shake
that is undoubtedly still lurking.
Now that the rush of watch ing the
rat's maternal behavior is over for
me, I'm again rooting for the
snakes.

SPORTS TALK
JOHN L. CRAWFORD


Generous

Wuerffel

could use

some help

"i t's now time for
University of Florida
head football coach
Urban Meyer to begin
earning his paycheck. While
his first two wins were serv-
iceable, we dre sure to get a
better gauge on whether the
coach's offensive philosophy
will hold water in the rock-
'em-sock-'em SEC when
Tennessee comes to
Gainesville Saturday night.
Does Florida match up
well with Tennessee? Sure,
the Gators might have better
personnel than the Vols. But
the bigger question is will
Meyer's spread option
offense, which has appeared
a bit shaky against two far
less-talented teams, be able
to click against the Big
Orange? Yeah, I'd say
Tennessee is a big game for
the Gators, as usual. But it
might just be the biggest of
Meyer's five-year coaching
career ...
A quick apology to South
Carolina fans. I didn't think
your Gamecocks could hang
in there with Georgia, which
they did 17-15, because I
wasn't convinced head coach
Steve Spurrier had the
means to put a lot of points
on the board. But I also did-
n't think the South Carolina
defense could stop Georgia.
Defense and Spurrier? It just
doesn't sound right ...
Jacksonville's drafting of
Matt Jones at wide receiver
might later be revered as
genius if Sunday's perform-
ance in a 26-14 home open-
ing win over Seattle was a
preview of things to come.
Jones showed his blazing
speed on a reverse and
stretched out for a few nice
catches, not to mention he
lined up under center for a
play during the first drive.
What a weapon.
The Jacksonville defense
looks as good as advertised if
you take away a few cover-
age miscues. The bad news
is that QB Byron Leftwich
still looks a bit slow in releas-
ing the ball and RB Fred
Taylor doesn't seem to have
that familiar burst. The
Jaguars will have to get those
things corrected to contend
for a playoff spot...
Anybody who kept up
with former Gator quarter-
back Danny Wuerffel knows
that his immediate life after
college football in the
NFL, that is wasn't very
successful. His most memo-
rable play as a member of
the New Orleans Saints was
when his helmet got turned
around on his head. So,
Wuerffel bowed out after a
few more seasons and com-
menced to turning around
the lives of underprivileged
New Orleans kids instead,
heading up Desire Street
Ministries.
Long story short, his
home and his ministry, like
most of New Orleans,
washed away in Hurricane
Katrina. Members of the
ministry were relocated to
Texas with no money and
nowhere to stay.
The University of Florida
bucked up last week and
donated the proceeds of the
Gators' pay-per-view telecast
- about $50,000 to
Wuerffel's cause. While
extremely generous, that's
obviously just a drop in the
bucket when taking into
account the big picture.
Whether you're a Gator
fan or just a fan of a person
who has tried to live his life
the right way and help oth-
ers, Wuerffel and company
could use some support.
Those wishing to help can
make a check payable to
Desire Street Ministries and
mail it to: Whitney National
Bank, MailTeller, 1716
Mangum Road, Houston, TX
77092.

Jacobsen


1150- A--


fifth in AJGA

Tournament
Micah Jacobsen, 15, of Fernan-
dina Beach, posted scores of 73
and 74 for a 147 total to place fifth
in the Ashworth Junior at Highland
Oakes in Dothan, Ala. The event
was conducted by the American
Junior Golf Association.
Jacobsen battled high winds
and an extremely competitive field,
including the top ranked junior
boys ages 13-18, in this open field
format. The par-72 Highland Oaks
Course measured 6,816 yards and
hosted a field of golfers from 21
states and Canada.
Jacobsen took advantage of an
invitation and survived a pre-tour-
nament qualifying to gain entry
into the field.
"I was really excited to qualify.
And then to finish fifth in my first
AJGA event was a relief. This will
help me gain entry to more AJGA
events in the future," Jacobsen
said.
The AJGA is a non-profit organ-
ization dedicated to the growth and
development of young men and
women who aspire to earn schol-
arships through competitive jun-
ior golf. Alumni of this program
include Tiger Woods, Phil
Mickelson, Mike Weir, Charles
Howell mI, Grace Park and Christie
Kerr.
Jacobsen is the top-ranked 15-
year-old in the state of Florida,
according to The Junior Golf
Scoreboard Rankings. These rank-
ings assess more than 5,800 junior
golfers in the country and are
based on average score, strength of
competition, and finishing position
in qualifying tournaments.
Jacobsen has been a student of
the Anne Cain Golf Academy since
2001.
"Anne is an amazing instructor.
Her facility is one of the best in
the country and utilizes technolo-
gy that really helps me with my
swing" Jacobsen said. "In fact, she
recently caddied for me in an event
and we came to the conclusion that
my wedge game was not as sharp
as it needed to be. After working on
that part of my game using the Hot
Lines technology, I played great in
Dothan!"
The Anne Cain Golf Academy is
located at The Golf Club of Amelia
Island, adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton,
Amelia Island. For more informa-
tion about the Hot Lines technolo-
gy, call the Anne Cain Golf

Between a northeaster and
Mother Nature by the name of
Ophelia, there was enough rain
and wind to cancel the
Fernandina Beach Men's Golf
Association Wednesday blitz last
week. With nicer weather, there
were 62 players taking part in
the Friday blitz. Charles
Hoenstine had a great round of
77, good for plus 12 points and
individual honors.
Heyde Peterson also had a
good round of 75 and plus 9 for
second while three players
(Chris Gill, 84), (Johnny
Scarboro, 74) and (Bo Alvarez,
69) shared third at plus 8.
When two players with big
pluses land on the same team, it
helps to overcome scores that
are not so great. In this case,
Hoenstine (plus 12) and
Scaiboro (plus 8) teamed with
Jim Gibson (87, minus 6) and
Wilson Moore (85, minus 2) to
finish at plus 12 and in first place.
Second place at plus 10 went
to the the team of D.D. Miller
(90, plus 5), Bill Murphy (88,
even), Terry Lacoss (88, plus 4)
and Sam DuBose (90, plus 1).
In a distant third place, the
team of Tim Goodrich (75, plus
6), George Henderson (105, plus
1), Bob Sibley (86, even) and
Mike Lovejoy (86, minus 3) fin-
ished at plus 4.
Bruce Johnson (80, plus 3),
Bob Riley (82, plus 3), Jim
Robertson (90, minus 7), and
Gene Barashes (87, plus 5) came
in fourth at plus 3.
Breakfast mixer
Saturday was one of the nicest
days for playing golf all summer
as 32 players took part in the
FBMGA Saturday Morning
Breakfast Mixer. Al Jump, with
an 85 and plus 5, took'first place
with Bob Howard (82, plus 3)
taking second. There was a four-


way tie-for the remaining posi-
tions at plus 2 between Rich
Vredenburgh (86), Steve
Johnson (70), Allen Sage (80)
and Michael Parker (77).
With a two-man tournament
scheduled to be played Saturday,.
there will not be a mixer on that
date. There is a sign-up sheet in
the pro shop for this tournament
as well as for the October 4 Ball.

Osbornejoins academy
Jacksonville native Cooper
Osborne's days are spent doing
what he's wanted to do since his
childhood days of idolizing.


Arnold Palmer
- helping golf
students, from
novices to
experts, achieve
the indescrib-
able feeling that
accompanies
hitting the per-
fect shot.
"I love see-
ing the looks on
my students'
faces after


Osborne


they've hit an amazing shot," said
Osborne, the new director of golf
instruction at the Anne Cain Golf
Academy on Amelia Island.
'Tliat'C why I became a teacher."
Osborne believes it takes
commitment from the students
and the teacher to create lifelong
solutions rather than short-term
fixes. He teaches proper mechan-
,ics that can be broken down to a
recognizable skill, so that there's
a much better chance of students
understanding what they are
doing wrong, and, eventually,
why they are achieving success.
"Sometimes just by hitting
often enough, someone will hit


one as good as a pro," Osborne
said. "He may have gotten lucky
that one time, but he felt that
feeling that can't be put into
words that feeling of truly
connecting with the ball and
he wants to experience it again. I
can help him do that, partly by
utilizing the Hot Lines technolo-
gy here at the Anne Cain Golf
Academy."
Osborne comes from a close-
knit Southern family that
respects the traditions of golf.
Both his grandfathers and his
father introduced him to golf as a
child. Even after 15 years as a
professional golf instructor, he
tries to surround himself with
other golfers who challenge him
to continually learn. That's one of
the reasons he enjoys working
for Anne Cain, founder and CEO
of the Anne Cain Golf Academy.
"Anne and I come from the
same lineage of teaching, and
we're both disciplined in our
approach, but she constantly
keeps me on my toes," Osborne
said. "I've taught long enough to
know that Anne's method and
Hot Lines technology truly
work."
Osborne, who has been a
PGA member since 1990, recent-
ly earned the PGA's specialty
certification for instruction. He
also was voted PGA Teacher of
the Year in 2000 for the
Northeast Florida chapter.
Although golf remains his first
love, he grew up playing soccer
and baseball, and, more recently,
completed basic coursework in
the pilates method of physical
conditioning. He also is certified
as a yoga instructor.
Family is also important to
Osborne. He lives in Atlantic
Beach, minutes away from his

mother and three siblings.
"We're a very close family,"
he said. "We take care of each
other."
The Anne Cain Golf Academy
is located at The Golf Club of
Amelia Island, adjacent to The
Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. The
combination of an experienced
instructor, the latest video tech-
nology and an all-weather prac-
tice facility makes for an
enhanced learning experience in
pleasant surroundings. For more
information about the Hot Lines
technology, call the Anne Cain
Golf Academy at 321-5464 or visit

Ladies golf
The team of Linda Scott, Jean
Taylor, Jayne Paige and Sheryl
Gerhardt won the Fernandina
Beach Women's Golf Association
Sept. 6 season opener with a
team score of 110.
To celebrate the season, the
association opened with a sham-
ble mixer where team members
were allowed to compete from
the longest drive on each hole
scoring with the two best balls. A
day of camaraderie was enjoyed
,by 32 golfers.
Second-place honors went to
the team of Mary Poole, Mary
Ann Schroeder, Samantha
Havourd and Pat Orr with total
score of 116. There was a third
place tie between the team of
JoAnn Porter, Regina Brennan,
Nancy Speck and Pat Johnson
and the team of Donna Dandu-

Tower power


Anglers enjoy excellent

fishing at R-5 Navy tower


Drifting smack in the middle
of a school of dolphin was pro-
ducing plenty of rod-bending
fishing action when Hal Waters
told his fishing partners, Rusty
and Lee Kennedy, that he had
hooked into something much
larger than the 5- to 15-pound
dolphin that they were presently
catching.
"I looked at Hal's fishing reel
and saw that he was almost clean
dry of 20-pound fishing line,"
Rusty said. "I cranked up the out-
board and headed for his fast-
running game fish, hoping that
Hal's big fish would not spool
him."
Three big runs later and after
a 45-minute fight, Hal finally
began to wear down his fish,
which now came grudgingly to
Rusty's long steel gaff.
"When I saw Hal's fish, a mas-
sive king mackerel, I knew that it
was much larger than 50
pounds," Rusty said. "In fact,
after gaffing the big king just
behind the head, I had to have
help in lifting his big catch into
our fishing boat Once the king
was lying on the deck, we
guessed/that it weighed 60
pounds or better. Back at the
dock scales, we were exactly
right!"
Rusty was fishing with his
son, Lee, and friend, Hal Waters,
when they made their big king-
fish catch several summers ago.
Actually, Waters' king mackerel
was a new Georgia state record
at the time, but fell during the
summer of 2004 to a 72-pound
king mackerel that was caught at
Georgia's Gray's Reef.
"There is some mighty good
fishing at the R-5 Navy tower,"
said Rusty of St. Simon's Island,
Ga. "The tower produces excel-
lent fishing action for red snap-
per, grouper and cobia year
round. The tower also attracts
schools of baitfish, including
Spanish sardines.. Bdstoh mack-
erel and cigar-minnows. We nor-
mally begin our fishing day by
baiting up while jigging with,
feathered bait catcher hooks.
However, you don't want to jig
any deeper than 10 feet, or the
barracuda will hit your barbed
minnows and rob you of your
bait catcher rig.


"Once we
have jigged
up from 5-6
dozen live
baits, we will
often begin
our day of
fishing by
/ dropping
down
Terry Lacoss barbed min-
... nows with
our bottom
OUTDOORS fishing tack-
le, right up
close to the tower. In fact, some
of the best bottom fishing action
comes from the large legs of the
tower, which are located in 89
feet of water."
Fishermen should also be
aware that ifs against the law to
tie off to any of their Navy tow-
ers. So many fishermen will sini-
ply anchor off from the tower
and cast their baits to the tower,
or back up to the tower on the
down current side and hold their
boat against the tower with their
boat's posser.
"Some of the best trolling
action often conies during mid-
morning after the sun has been
up for a while and heated up the
water temperature," Rusty said.
"You can catch a variety of game
fish including some'giant king
mackerel!
"Although striking fish are
attracted to the tower all year
round, some of the best trolling
action comes during the warmer
months with some of the best
bottom fishing coming during
the cooler months."
During the early 1980s, eight
Navy towers were constructed
off Georgia's coastline. One of
the most popular towers to fish
has been the R-5 Navy tower,
located some 35 miles from the
St. Marys inlet .
"I think one ot the major fac-
'tors contributing to the excellent
fishing at the R-5 towefsifitf i
location to the Brunswick 41.I-
Mile Bottom," Rusty said. "The
R-5 tower is located five miles
west of the 40-mile bottom, giv-
ing both schools of baitfish and
striking fish the opportunity to
migrate from one to the other.
"In other words, when the.
fishing is slow at the R-5 tower,


Trolling pro-
duces king
mackerel,
dolphin, sail-
fish, tuna,
cobia, bar-
racuda and
many more
species of
game fish at
Georgia's R-
5 Navy
tower. Left,

Navy towers,

it's normally excellent at the 40-
mile bottom.
"There is also nothing but a
sand bottom for some 35 miles
that it takes to reach the R-5
tower. However, there are a few
small live bottoms here, includ-
ing C and G reefs and the squid
bottom."
Other popular fishing towers
include the R-4 and the M1IRI
Navy towers. The R-4 Navy
tower is located 25 miles east of
the R-5 tower and the M RI
Navy tower is located 10 miles
northeast of the R-5 Navv tower.
Some of the catches are sim-
ply towering aL the R-5 Navy
tower. During the 2004 fishing
season, Capt. Allen Mills guided
the Holland fishing party to a 90-
pound wahoo at the tower. The
fishing party aboard the
"Wahoo" fishing charter boat
was bottom fishing when the big
wahoo ate a live b-liner.

Athletes vie for spot

Many volunteers from Naval Station Mayport

showed their appreciation by giving them a standing
ovation at the opening of the event.
"These folks are a blessing every year they take
time to help us in every event we have," said Bob
Hinton,- Nassau County coordinator for Special
Olympics.

After Katrina, the challenge of feeling at home again


R recent events have made
us all think a little more
about what "home" really
s. We continue to watch
as the displaced struggle to
rebuild and somehow find a sense
of home, even if it is only tempo-
rary. Some have lost the only
place they have every lived.
Aerial shots show. acres of
destruction. Some lost houses
and some lost homes. Houses are
shelters roofs, walls and grass
that needs to be cut. Homes are
where you most want to be and
what you miss when you are
away.
Some of us choose our homes
and some just end up somewhere
and make it home. I was lucky


Dickie Anderson

FROM THE
PORCH


enough to
choose..
After a life-
time of liv-
ing all over
the country
from west
to east, I
found
Amelia
Island and
it feels like
home.
The
island
offers so
much that
grounds
me. Its nat-


ural beauty continues to amaze


me with its endless variations.
On one side there is an ocean
that always soothes and comforts
and on the other its sister the
Amelia River offers a different
kind of calm with its lush green
marshes.
The island's beauty is not skin
deep, it goes to the heart. If you
look for it, there is an inspiring
spirit and goodness in the people
who have always lived 'here and
who choose to make it their
home. If someone needs help
there are helpers. A true commu-
nity.
Many on the island are partici-
pating in their own way to help
Katrina's victims. Funds are being
raised, homes opened and jobs


offered.
What is home and how long
will it take the displaced to feel,
finally, at home?
It can be things you see, hear
or smell. Like bread baking, the
bed that knows your body, a
favorite coffee cup, or the cold
nose of a pet. Home is the noisy
dishwasher, dripping outdoor
faucet, a room that needs painting
or a yard that just never stops
growing.
Home is neighbors. Home is
family. A call from a busy child full
of chatty news, a visit to a favorite
relative, albums full of memories:
of family past and present. A
shared meal with family or
friends.


Home is ritual the first cup
of coffee in the morning, a peck
on the cheek from a loved one, a
walk with dogs, Sunday morning
church or shopping at a favorite
grocery store.
Yes, our homes have a number
and a street but there is so much
more behind that front door.
With our prayers and our help
the victims of Katrina's devasta-
tion will get help and find places
to live.
The children will go to
schools. Families will be reunited.
We need to help them all feel
at home again.
Dickie Anderson welcomes
your comments at dickiemm@
