Kirk Swenson, new executive
director for the Boys & Girls Club
of Nassau County Foundation, has
a vision to have satellite clubs
throughout Nassau County.
"Our dream is that one day we
will have enough clubs to serve
1,000 kids each day from one side
of the county to the other," he says.
"Any student who needs an after
school or summer program will
have a place to go."
With action, dreams become
goals, and every goal begins with
a first step. "We have. broken
ground on the new Boys and Girls
facility, to be located on County
Road 107 in Nassauville. The club-
house, 19,000 square feet, will hold
up to 300 kids. Most of the chil-
dren in the B&G are in elemen-
tary school, but there are also
some high school students who
attend," he said.
The foundation is the fund-rais-
ing arm of the club. It is responsi-
ble for raising the money that goes
toward building and maintaining
the new facility. When it is com-
pleted, all club operations will move
from the old Yulee middle school to
the new location.

Gail Russell, formerly a Fernandina
Beach Police officer, said he has
had vehicles with 55,000 miles
But normally, 'We try to roll
them over at no more than 80,000
miles," he said. "... We've replaced
cars as early as 55,000 miles and as
late as 85 or 90,000 miles."
Ruiill'- department does not

which Fernandina Beach does, but
each .fl il- department's 14 cars is
assigned to two police officers.
Russell said currently a take-home
policy is not in place because

The Clay County Sheriff's
Office. with a total of 400 vehicles,
including 193 patrol cars, doesn't
have a set-in-stone policy for vehicle
replacement, according to Lt. Mike
Lawrence, who oversees the fleet.
Lawrence said on average patrol
cars are used up to 100,000 miles
and vehicles driven by administra-
tive employees usually run up to
of 2003, and he said he promptly
informed his superiors about them.
Rosier was arrested later in 2003
for sexual misconduct with another
minor in a local hotel room. He was
convicted and lost his job as a police
"I screwed up," Rosier told the
News-Leader a few weeks ago. "I
took responsibility for my screw-
up. They need to take responsibili-
ty for theirs."
Rosier said he believed the girl's
story in 2003 because of her
descriptions of what took place,
and where, and said she backed
off her story because of threats
"Branning called her and told
her not to talk," he said.
Rosier said he has continued to
counsel the girl and her mother,
but denied doing so because of the
criminal case against him. "It's not
a revenge thing. It's what's right
and what's wrong," he said.
Coe said he was assigned to
interview the girl after the allega-
tions were made in 2003 and she
denied them. "She was adamant
that nothing had occurred," he said.'
Coe said the girl told him "she
had resigned from the (Explorers)
program because of this flurry of
rumors that had gone on." The
Explorers program was disbanded
that spring after rumors circulat-
ed about the girl's sexual relations
with police officers.

He said that taped denial, com-
bined with the written statement
denying the allegations, led police
administrators to believe the alle-
gations were false.
Coe said he did make "informal"
contact with FDLE and described
the matter and it was jointly decid-
ed not to pursue it.
Hammond said "if it involves a
serious criminal complaint, we
would call (FDLE) and ask if they
would take it for us."
But "rumors and hearsay, we're
not going to bring anywhere," he
Hammond said FDLE was for-
mally asked to investigate after the
girl changed her story and made
her allegations in a written com-
plaint and interview with
Thompson last August
But, Gerrity said, "It'sinot fair for
our (police) department to investi-
gate itself or common sense."
"These officers needed to be
vindicated, or investigated proper-

"In the summer of 20031 I asked
Mr. Mearns to bring in FDLE to
investigate the police department.

done. And he refused to do it,"
Gerrity said, In hindsight, Gerrity
said, he should have made public
his request of Mearns.'

'"The foundation's work isn't
going to stop with the completion
of the new building. We will con-

ters where they are most need-
ed," promised Swenson.
"I can give compelling reasons
for this. At no time in history has
there been so many opportunities
for kids to excel. Conversely, there
have never been so many oppor-
tunities to make poor decisions. In
2002 there were 35 births to
teenage mothers in Nassau
County. Statistically, 30 of those
will live in poverty; over 14 will
be arrested prior to age 18, and
over 25 will not graduate from

The Boys & Girls Club was

whose lives become a series of
failures, changing the pattern of
poor decision-making that recy-

"It's not all fun and games at
the club, as some may think," said
Swenson. "That's part of it, but
assistance with homework, role

ance are emphasized. If you
should walk in at 3:30 p.m., after
a short break involving motor
activities, you would see kids with
heads bent over their homework,
and staff members helping. Then
it's back to games and sports."
Swenson is well qualified to
assess the developmental needs of
children. He is a nationally board-
certified behavior analyst, and was
vice president of Community
Impact with the United Way of
Northeast Florida from 1999 to

County kills public bus plan
Nassau County has officially
put the brakes on a countywide
Citing cost concerns and a lack
of feasibility for the project, the
Nassau County Commission voted
unanimously Wednesday to kill
plans for a public bus system which
had been in the works for years.
Following results of a 2000 traf-
fic study paid for by the Florida
Department of Transportation, the
Nassau County Council on Aging
requested funding for a county-
wide transit system to run 12 hours
a day, six days a week.
In 2003, the county was award-
ed a Florida Department of
Transportation grant to pay for
$230,000 of the system's opera-
tional costs and purchased two of
the four buses.
However, by this spring the
project already appeared doomed.
In May, the county commission
took over the project from the
Council on Aging, which said it
could not afford a match for the
grant or the funding necessary to
see the project through.
The county commission dis-
cussed salvaging the project at sev-
eral meetings, but Wednesday
decided it wasn't feasible.
FDOT's grant expires in
December, and even with a six-
month extension the county needs
to come up with more than
$200,000 to match the grant, then
find a way to operate the bus sys-

Hucldeby is listed in critical con-
dition at Shands; a condition for
Crumbley was not available.
According to Leeper, the log
truck, driven by Mark Masters, 39,
of Folkston, Ga., was traveling
north on US 1 when he attempted
to make a U-turn and go south.
Crumbley was driving a 1985
Chevrolet south on US 1 when he
struck the right side of the log
truck. Neither Huckleby nor
Crumbley was wearing a seatbelt,
Masters, who was wearing a
seatbelt, was not injured.
The accident occurred about
5:30 a.m. near the Florida/Georgia
state line. Charges are pending,

Marshall, a strong supporter of the
project, admitted Wednesday time
had run out.
"We all know this ran into major
issues in February when we
learned it wasn't moving forward,"
she said. "By now this was sup-
posed to have been in operation
for three years. There's just no way
we can address this today."
The county had considered
allowing a for-profit agency to run
However, Jan Carver of the
Council on Aging said Wednesday
the one proposal from Buccaneer
Transit made no mention of rev-
enue sources or operational costs.
"It's just not worth doing,"
Carver said. "We recommend the
county not move forward."
In addition to killing the project,
the commission voted to return
the two buses to FDOT. The coun-
ty also purchased two buses on its
own, and will decide what to do
with them at a future meeting.
One suggestion was to return at
least one to the Council on Aging's
Care-A-Van program, which
already provides transportation for
elderly and disabled residents.
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney said he would' notify

sue an extension but may apply for

Crane Island hearing
postponed to Oct.12
The Nassau County Commis-
sion postponed a long-anticipat-
ed public hearing Wednesday
regarding Crane Island.
The meeting has been
rescheduled for 10 a.m. Oct 12 at
the County Building on Pages
Dairy Road in Yulee.
The commission was to hear
public comments prior to consid-
ering a memorandum of under-
standing with the city of
Fernandina Beach regarding a
controversial development pro-
posal for Crane Island.
The memorandum determines
which agency will control various
aspects of the proposed develop-
ment's application process.
The two commissions will then
vote on the memorandum at sep-
arate public hearings.
Commission Chair Ansley
Acree said Wednesday the coun-
ty decided to postpone its public
hearing at the request of Crane
Island representatives and
because Wednesday's meeting
agenda was too crowded.
"(County Attorney) Mike
Mullin had a meeting with the
Crane Island developers, and they
asked that it be tabled," she said.
"It was also mutually beneficial
for the board, because we had
several additional items on today's
A large crowd was expected
for the public hearing, including
citizens and homeowner groups
opposed to the development.
Dozens of people have attended
joint meetings of the city and
county this summer, even when
they knew there'd be no oppor-
tunity to speak.
Under the memorandum, the
county would decide the density
for the proposed 169-lot, high-
scale development before the city
annexes the property.
Applications for the develop-
ment were also scheduled for con-
sideration by the county's
Planning and Zoning Board this
month. However, that was con-
tinued to the planning'board's

A Culinary fair to benefit The Nassau County Volunteer Center
Featuring the finest chefs and restaurants on Amelia Island
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16,2005/News-Leader
VOICE OF THE PEOPLE *
Let's not be too harsh on Mike Mahaney for the 5-
cent surtax per gallon of gasoline and his threat to dou-
ble the landfill fee to $100 for Nassau County residents.
What with the five months time he spent and the
$100,000 cost to uncover a $14,000 error, he probably
did not have time to consider other perhaps more cre-
ative solutions to county road improvements and the
landfill conundrum. He probably didn't even have
time to read the newspapers and learn about the
price of gas fast approaching $3 a gallon or consider
that the $100,000 he was spending on an inane inves-
tigation was the hard-earned money of taxpayers.
But there could be a redeeming factor in this
snafu. Mahaney and Commissioner Marianne
Marshall could collaborate and publish a book using
Mahaney's voluminous investigative reports and
Marshall's three book binders on the mitigation mys-
tery as background material. The benefits: They will
be too busy to meddle in county government; coun-
ty citizens might learn just what they uncovered; the
book might be a best seller and they could contribute
the proceeds to the people of Nassau County; if ifs not
a best seller we would at least have one new book on
our empty library shelves.
Unfortunately, the young writer that wrote "Not
refugees" in the Sept 7 letters to the editor has been
influenced by some of the talking heads on televi-
sion and not by "Webster's," the trusted dictionary of
Ithe past century. Truly, refugee describes people that
have left New Orleans better than any of the sug-
gested words. There is nothing negative about
"refugee." It is merely a term that means 1)take
refuge, 2)flee to safety, which includes but is not lim-
ited to the fleeing across borders. .
It is sad that over time certain words become polit-
ically incorrect due to people placing meaning on the
words that are not there or intended. We are contin-
ually losing parts of our ability to express thoughts
succinctly due to this move to satisfy the inability of
some to understand the language. Me thinks Mark
Twain would be in trouble in the present day.
I read the letter about the city's sign at Eighth and
Lime Streets counting "accident free" days ("Safety is
no accident," Sept 9) and feel the need to respond.
The city of Fernandina Beach has experienced a
dramatic decrease in worker comp insurance rates in
the last two years. Worker comp insurance rates are
based on the number of claims in the previous three
There are two reasons for rate decreases. Number
one is the switch to Waste Management in June of
2003. The sanitation department, because of the
nature of the service it provided, had a high inci-
dence of claims. The second reason, and most impor-
tant, is the formation of the city's safety committee,.
compjrn rfdPtf, emplvi.~es Anyrne involve-d in pro-
moting workplace safety knows thhtawareness is the
most valuable tool in preventing accidents.
I can't think of a better way to build safety aware-
ness than a sign reminding employees of the number
of consecutive "accident free" days. I fully support and
congratulate the initiative of the safety committee,
and look forward to the day when we have a streak of
100 "accident free" days. Keep us informed, and keep
up the safe work! -
I am writing to share a wonderful story of gen-
erosity with you. Today I stopped at TC Consignment
to pick up some baby blankets and sheets to donate
to the survivors of Hurricane Katrina.
Barbara Kent is the owner, and when I told her
what I was looking for she said to me 'Take whatev-
er you think they need." She gave me some large
garbage bags and we began filling them with baby bot-
tles, baby carriers, blankets, sheets, shoes, under-
garments, clothes, baby tubs, washcloths, towels and
so much more ... her shelves were empty when we
were done! I actually had to go buy more bags! We
filled my van to the tip-top and I dropped everything
off at the Fernandina Beach Fire Department who
were just amazed.
Her generosity literally left me speechless and for
that, I wish to thank her. Her donations will give so
much comfort and support to all those in need -
maybe even a glimmer of hope to those who are in
such despair and with nothing.
She is a truly remarkable woman and I just want-
ed to say thanks.
Not in vain
I would like the citizens of the Yulee area to know
that if all of you had the compassion like one person
has for the hurricane victims, this would truly be a bet-
ter world to live in.
This lady had worked a 7 to 7 night shift and as she
was coming home, she heard over the radio that peo-
ple were giving aid to the firemen and rescue who had
been helping out in the relief efforts.
She called the sheriff's office and asked about
this and he told her he would call the fire station in
After working 12 hours she went from door to
door asking for food to send to them. Everyone was
responsive except one woman who really hurt her feel-
ings by telling her what she was doing was illegal.
She then carried her van full of items to evening
shift at the fire station and the firemen did not know
anything about it until they called their chief.
She came by my house and was really upset
because she felt like what she did was in vain.
I tried to comfort her and told her that her com-
passion and work was not in vain. I know the Lord will
bless her efforts. Thank you and may God bless all
Got his Irish up
I must say I was taken aback by some of Mr.
Boyle's comments in "Why his Irish eyes are smiling"
(Sept. 2). Mr. Boyle states that "the Irish take pride
in their stereotypical caricature." Trust me, this is not
true as evidenced by the actions of the Ancient Order
of Hibernians, which asked their members to boycott
Hallmark for their tasteless St. Patrick's Day cards
which express the same loutish sentiments. In Ireland
in recent years there have been several public state-
ments of dissatisfaction with Notre Dame's use of
"The Fighting Irish." If they find that distasteful, can
you imagine what they would think of some of Mr.
Boyle's comments? And this from someone who sup-
posedly :hare' their heritage' 7", "
As someone % ho was born and raised in Ireland,
I can assure you that the Irish do care how they are
perceived and depicted -which shouldn't be a surprise
given what they have had to endure over the cen-,
turies. If Mr. Boyle's column ran in an Irish newspa-
per, he would quickly find out that what I'm saying is
The Irish are justly proud of their culture and her-
itage. Nasty ethnic slurs have no place in a society that
respects diversity, as the United States does.

Dickie is a humble and compassionate person
who works tirelessly for this community. She is not an
elitist; she would be the first person to offer aid and
comfort in an emergency.
Obviously the letter writer has never met Dickie
and is unaware of her many contributions and attrib-
utes. As her friends, we appreciate and enjoy her
delightful sense of humor. Her wit should not be mis-
interpreted as callousness.
We feel this attack was unfair and just wanted to set
the record straight. '

I have to agree with some of the criticism of
Coleman Langshaw. He obviously has a huge problem
with the Bush administration and Republicans. Fine,
I'm not thrilled with them either much of the time. I
could say the same for his party of choice, also. But
the relentless attacks on them are just silly. According
to Coleman, you'd think that they invented cancer,
want babies to die and are just waiting for the right
moment to rip off their clothes to reveal Nazi uniforms
I think this kind of radical political childishness pos-
ing as a "column" in your paper only diminishes it in
the eyes of your readers. As a recently arrived out-
sider, my first impression when I read his columns was
"they must not be able to get anyone sane to write a.
column for what they're paying." Just because you can
put words together in a grammatically cor.zeaL fash-
ion, itdoe-n'r mak-.inht ,n-'rec f'in@W.$Fitr 1 lin
His columns seem aboutas-rational and thoughtful as
any of David Duke's columns.
Thank you for the work of the News-Leader. My
wife and I have been visiting Fernandina since 1998
and are planning to move there next year. We read the
online paper as soon as it is posted and we have been
impressed by.the quality and breadth of the report-
ing. You and your staff have a keen sense of the
important issues of the community and do a good job
of reporting on them. We very much appreciate the
online version as it allows.us to learn more about our
new community. Please keep up the good work.

Having read the letter "Iraq A Mistake" (Sept 7)
I wish to offer a different point of view: a poem writ-
ten by Edgar A. Guest It was included in the book
America Out of The Ashes published shortly after the
Guest writes, in part
There are many to cheer when the battle begins,
There are many to shout for the right;
There are many to rail at the world and its sins,
But few have the grit for the fight.
There are thousands to start with a rush for the fray
When the fighting seems easy to do,
But when danger is present and rough is the way,
The few have to see the job through....
We have set out to battle for justice and truth,
We have fearful disasters to meet;
We shall weep for the best of our manliest youth,
We shall suffer the pangs of defeat
But let us stand firm for the cause that we plead,
Let the many be brave with the few;
The cry of the quitter let none of us heed
Till we've done what we started to do.
Thankfully not all of us in America feel we should
"tuck our tails."

a magic city
W hen the music died in New Orleans, a
piece of my heart went with it
Beyond the shock and deep sorrow I
felt for Katrina's victims, I also felt a
personal sense of loss. Of the Gulf Coast cities
crushed by Katrina's fury, I cannot help but focus
on New Orleans, because I knew it best
New Orleans became my Magic City when I
first saw it through the eyes of a love-struck bride
almost four decades ago. It was a far cry from
Cleveland, Tenn., where I had lived for 12 years
before I met John. Other

a dour expression.

sauce, at Antoine's.
Breakfast at Brennon's was scrumptious and ele-
gant. In contrast, on some mornings, we munched
on warm, sugar-dusted beignets at the Farmer's
Market washed down with chicory-laced coffee. I
remember the sweet children from a nearby
parochial school, dressed in spiffy navy and white
uniforms, who chatted with us as they enjoyed
their breakfast treat.
What a special city! We sipped Hurricanes at
Pat O'Brien's and found that like the drink's name-
sake, one was more than enough. On some
evenings we sat on benches in a cozy room in the
French Quarter, tapping our feet in the sawdust as
we listened to jazz in the birthplace of the Blues.
John smiled in amusement at me as I averted
my eyes from the tawdry side of life when we took
an evening stroll down Bourbon Street Daylight
brought out the artists with their"easels in
Jackson Square, and we joined the daily worship-
pers in prayer at the splendid St. Louis Cathedral.
We quietly watched, in amazement, the optimism
and spirit of a troupe of mourners turned cele-
brants as they marched from a cemetery where
they had laid a good man to eternal rest; the
lively strains of "When The Saints come Marching
In," played on trumpets, acknowledged their faith
I don't even begin to search for a "reason" for
the recent disaster. That is well beyond my ken.
But I firmly believe that a benevolent God can
bring good out of the miseries that befall us in this
life. And often He accomplishes this through the
caring and generous hands of His children.
In spite of tares among the wheat on televi-
sion we witnessed in anger and distress the
depravity opportunists Americans in great
numbers have rallied to serve the suffering. When
push comes to shove, we are there a strong peo-
ple when we unite to tackle a huge job.
The magic city is gone, but I prayfully hope
that the evacuees will keep some of that magic
in their hearts. I hope that when the terrible
wounds begin to heal, that spirit will survive. As
delightful as New Orleans was, it is the people, not
the buildings, that made it so. We saw them at
their worst recently, in panic, fear, anger, despair.
But with the help of fellow Americans, and faith,
they will laugh again, sing a new song, and carry
the special gifts of that culture with them to a new

Development vs. our environment
A friend recently provided me with an article
from the Florida Journal (affiliated with
the Wall Street Journal) relating to
Fernandina Beach, and if I hadn't seen the
date at the top of the page, I would have assumed it
was a recent edition. The title was, "Beach Town
Struggles with Sudden Popularity," and had the fol-
"If a ship had been run the way this town has
been run, it would sink."
"Looking at a barren 10-acre strip near the
shore where a home-building company two months
ago knocked down 10 acres of tall trees and flat-
tened several of the area's cherished dunes," a sit-
ting commissioner said, "I'm aghast at what has hap-
pened here, and (the city) abetted it"
'The city manager and the head of the building
department have been fired, and two subordinates
have been transferred to jobs that don't involve con-
struction permits which were issued for the now- ,
controversial removal of the trees and dunes."
"The new interim city manager ... is moving to
abolish the Building Department altogether in favor
of a Community Development Department"
"Making (development) fit into our pristine
environment beaches, waterways, and lush vege-
tation wasn't a priority. But it will be now," said the
And when do you think that article was originally
published? Would you believe Aug. 16, 1995, over 10
For me it brings back much more recent memo-
ries such as the historic homes that were torn down
in the historic district (with city-issued permits), the
clear-cutting of hundreds of trees behind the old car
dealership on Sadler Road
(with city-issued permits) and
the three oversized homes
built on South Fletcher Avenue
(with city-issued permits).
When the 1995 article was
written the population of
Fernandina Beach was only
9,500, and the city budget was
$21 million. Both have grown
dramatically since that time.
Mike Boyle There were no Hampton Inns
or Best Western Hotels, and the
.' franchise food outlets were lim-
WAIT A ited to fast-food brands along,
MINUTE South Eighth Street. The article
goes on to say, "The residential
subdivision had also been a fair-
ly foreign concept (up to that time)." Well, they can't
say that any more.
Today I don't have the slightest idea as to how
many residential subdivisions now dot both the city
and the rest of Amelia Island. But if the, last 10 years
brought accelerated growth, the next couple of
years will probably match it.
On the south side of the city, along the Amelia
Island Parkway, there are numerous "residential
subdivisions" which are on the drawing boards
awaiting city approval. There are "a few units here,"
and "a few units there," and when looked at individ-
ually, they are not particularly alarming. But when
all are built and annexed into the city, they will add
hundreds of housing units, which in turn will add
hundreds of cars to our streets and highways, and
hundreds of children to our schools.
And if past experience is any predictor of future
performance, you can expect to see most of the
trees in that area cut down and replaced with city-
approved landscaping consisting of small bushes
and an occasional palm tree.
As a fairly recent arrival, I can still clearly
remember the first time I drove across the Shave
Bridge, turned right onto the Parkway and made my
way to the south end of the island. My wife and I
were impressed with the wide green swales, the
lush forests on both sides of the road and the tree
canopy that covered Buccaneer Trail like an
Since that first ride, we have covered that same
route hundreds of times, and it is a rare occasion
that one of us doesn't look around and remark how
beautiful that portion of the Parkway still is. That
observation is usually followed by the wistful ques-
tion, "How much longer do you think it will be like
this, before all of this is gone, and it's wall-to-wall
houses from the Shave Bridge to the Plantation?" It
is, of course, a rhetorical question since it's a fore-
gone conclusion that it will happen, we just don't
When I think of this I am drawn back to that
one comment from the city manager in the 1995
article, "Making (development) fit into our pristine
environment beaches, waterways, and lush
vegetation wasn't a priority. But it will be now."
Let's hope the next 10 years are better than the .
last 10 in reaching that goal.

VIEWPOINT/GERRI CHESTER/NASSAU COUNTY DEMOCRAT EXECUTVE COMMiTT '
A call to action in Katrina's wake
hurricane Katrina has shocked America. For
us in Nassau County it is particularly pro-
found. We now know inescapably that
"once in 100 years" could be this year, or
next. Category 3 Hurricane Dora did immense dam-
age to Jacksonville in 1964. Our barrier island could
be overwhelmed by storm surge from a Category 3
storm hitting just to our south. A Category 4 or 5
storm would leave our coastal area looking like
We also now know that the federal government is
not prepared for catastrophe. That must change. But
the first, and most critical, burden of planning, execu-
tion and responsibility falls to local officials. Do we
have the good sense and the.collective will to act
responsibly now? .
The lessons of Katrina are legion. We must review
our preparations and fast Some steps are patently
obvious: Call mandatory evacuations early, plan
specifically for the evacuation of those without the
vehicles or means to evacuate, keep real-time lists of
special needs citizens with specific steps of how to
protect their health and lives.
Other issues are more difficult to address. We
need a national dialogue on what sort of country we
are. Is it acceptable for a major and beloved
American city.to have 30 percent poverty and 50,000
families without personal access to the resources
needed to leave? We saw more than one national dis-
grace over the past two weeks.
There is another, particularly critical lesson for us.
We have seen satellite pictures of the changes over
time in the topography of the Gulf Coast Experts
agree that the development and erosion of marshes
and wetlands worsened the effects of Katrina. The
The experience ofKatrina may con-
firm the wisdom ofthose who have
been skeptical in the past of major
development on Crane Island.
necessary drainage area had been badly compro-
mised. A National Geographic article last October
highlighted the loss of barrier islands' marshlands as
a clear sign that the Louisiana/Mississippi coast was
becoming increasingly vulnerable to a major hurri-
cane. We are reminded of the incalculable and irre-
placeable value of our own marshlands.
Our disaster preparedness officials must grapple
with evacuation and disaster relief plans for the here
and now. Our city and county elected officials must
focus on the future when disaster, sooner or later, is
sure to strike. This is the time for creative foresight
and real leadership. Special interests and business as
usual must wait.
We all strongly support reasonable development,
the lifeblood of our community. But it is the responsi-
bility of those entrusted to govern us to ensure that,
development is both "safe and proper," in accordance
with Florida law. As a minimum, development cannot
be allowed to outstrip the capacity of our road net-
work to evacuate our citizens on short notice a
grave and growing danger. Also, our precious natural
heritage of wetlands and marshes must be treasured
for our safety as well as for our aesthetic pleasure.
So let's take a timeout before we develop any
more marshland or low-lying areas. We need to look
more carefully at the carrying capacity of the island,
our infrastructure needs', and new access and evacua-

The proposed development of Crane Island is a
prime example of a project that must be carefully
reexamined in light of this lesson on coastal vulnera-
bility. Higher density development of Crane Island
has been turned down by state and county officials
six times in 14 years. According to a 1997 Florida
Department of Environmental Protection report
"During major storm events, serious flooding is likely
to occur" on the island, which rises no more than 10
feet above sea level.

Crane Island would likely be entirely inundated by
even a Category 1 storm as water accumulated and
then receded on the west side of Amelia Island. And
that is in its current undeveloped state. The experi-
ence of Katrina may confirm the wisdom of those
who have been skeptical in the past of major develop-
ment on Crane Island. All alternatives must be care-
fully explored. This decision is much more important
for the future safety of our fragile island than any of
us realized two weeks ago.
Enormous responsibility comes with the privilege
of public service. Our public officials' first priority
must be to ensure that our citizens are as safe as they
can be from the threats we face. We need wisdom
and foresight now, not recriminations after the storm

task at hand.

issues that weighed him

with his head in his hands, the

Faced with problems for which

tried to counsel the young man in

of stability: putting down roots,
committing ourselves not simply
to a place but to a community of
faith, mutual forbearance, trust
and affection. Stability is a place
(mindset) where God calls us to
look beyond our passing tribula-
tions and attitudes and thereby
through fidelity to Jesus Christ
and one another, give glory to
Often times in life it is the
very place of our struggles where
we discover God. Remember
Jacob's dream at Bethel when the
Lord gave his promised blessing
atop a stairway (or ladder) that
descended from heaven: "When
Jacob awoke from his sleep, he
thought, 'Surely the Lord is in this
place, and I was not aware of it."
Despite all he faced, Jacob
realized the presence of God in
his life God is to be found wher-
ever the faithful stay or journey,
but it takes discipline, patience
and spiritual insight to discern
the presence of the divine in all
places and in all issues. Stability
is a discipline because it chal-
lenges us to commit ourselves to
discerning God in what confronts
and confounds us in life and in
our relationships with others. It
forces us to recognize that our
true identity is to be found nei-
ther in advancement nor in sim-
ply moving to what appears better
at the time. I'm not talking about
mere geographic stability a
commitment to spend our entire
life in one community. That chal-
lenge is for those called to
monasticism. But what can we
learn from their example?
All too often in life we give up
and move on far too quickly
because we fail to discern the
presence of God, the work of the
Holy Spirit, or the grace of our
Lord Jesus Christ. We cannot
always avoid change but let us
ask what is God at work doing in
our world and in our relation-
ships with others? Stability urges
us to remain true to our commit-
ments and to seek the presence
of God in all things.
Stability is a way of life that
urges us to commit ourselves to
seeking God where we are con-
fronting our fears, our frustra-
tions and our own shortcomings
and discerning the leading of the
Holy Spirit. It is to joyfully
acknowledge the words of Paul to
Timothy: "Here is a trustworthy
saying: If we died with him, we
will also live with him; if we
endure, we will also reign with
him. (2 Timothy
Where do you find yourself
today? Perhaps God would have
you to endure your difficulties in
order to discern his presence
through the benefits of spiritual
stability, and in this humble way,
give glory to God.

pastor of First Presbyterian Church

Osage-orange a hardy tree, but don't eat the fruit
Q" ,Do you know of anyplace

also referred to as monkey balls.

they are an excellent deterrent to
spiders and ants. HP

American native tree rapidly
grows 30 to 40 feet tall with a
spread of 20 to 40 feet and cre-
ates a dense canopy, making it
useful as a windbreak. Young
trees can develop an upright,
.pyramidal habit. The large, three
to six-inch long by two to three-
inch-wide, shiny, dark green
leaves turn bright yellow in fall
before dropping, although this
color change is not quite as
noticeable on trees grown in the
southeastern United States.
The bark is deeply furrowed
and has an orange tinge to it, and
the strong, durable wood is
bright orange in color. Osage-
oranges are considered reclama-
tion plants that have been suc-
cessfully grown in urban areas
where air pollution, poor
drainage, compacted soil, and/or
drought are common.
It is reported that the Osage
Indians made their hunting bows
from this beautiful and hard
wood, and it is also used to make
furniture. From April to June,
osage-orange puts out its incon-
spicuous green flowers but these
are followed by the very conspic-
uous fruits, four to five-inch-diam-
eter, rough textured, heavy green
balls that ripen to yellow-green
and fall in October and Novem-
ber. These fruits are not edible,
the juice is acid and milky, but
squirrels relish the small seeds
buried inside the pulp. When the
fruits drop, they can be very
messy and, for this reason, male,
fruitless trees should be selected
if you plant this tree.
Osage-orange is thorny, just
like true citrus trees, and forms
thickets if left to grow on its own.
However, there are thornless cul-
Osage-orange should be
grown in full sun on well-drained
soil. This tough, native plant can
withstand almost anything once
established heat, cold, wind,
drought, poor soil, ice storms,
and even some vandalism. It
appreciates regular watering
when young until it is estab-
lished, which generally takes
about 4 months. The thornless,

prone to premature flower

A .Premature flower bud drop
.tis often a problem with
hibiscus. Some varieties, especial-
ly some doubles, are character-
ized by premature bud drop.
Some varieties bloom well during
one period of the year and consis-
tently drop their buds at other
times. The importance of variety
selection is illustrated by this
point; therefore the problem may
lie with this specific variety.
However, bud drop can be caused
by insects such as thrips, gall
midges or caterpillars. Try to
examine one of the buds before
they drop by opening them up to
see if you find a worm inside,
which would be the larvae stage
of the gall midge. If you see dis-
torted flower petals or discol-
oration of the petals you may
have thrips, which are active in
Nematodes, nutritional defi-
ciencies, over-fertilization and
environmental factors such as
poor drainage and excessive
water, drought, or salt spray can
cause flower buds to drop.
Flowers are produced most of the
year in Florida, but the best pro-
duction is during'the fall and
spring when temperatures are
moderate to cool. Hot weather
bud drop is universal.
A wide range of well-drained
soils is suitable for hibiscus if
proper fertilization is provided. A
soil pH of 5.5 to 6.5 is preferred.
Hibiscus grown on alkaline soils
may suffer from micronutrient
deficiencies and this could con-
tribute to bud drop. Wow, now
that I have listed the numerous
possibilities you will need to do.
some scouting to find the culprit
or culprits as it may be a combi-
nation of factors. If an insect is
the problem you can use an
insecticide. Contact me again if it
turns out to be something other

varies but most have been sum-

killers as they may do more dam-'
age to the lawn than the weeds. If
possible, hand-pull the annuals
before they produce seeds, which
will stay in the ground until next
summer. By hand pulling the
weeds, you not only get.rid of the.
adult plant now but also next
year's plant If the weeds are in
one main area you can paint them
with a non-selective herbicide
(like Round-up) and it will kill the
weed. However, you must be
careful not to spray or drip the

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FLORIDA
JOHN L. CRAWFORD
For the News-Leader
Hilliard's varsity football had pre-season visions
of playing for a 2005 state championship.
After a 41-28 loss at Charlton County, Ga., Sept.
8 and a 1-2 start to the season, those dreams have
been put on hold. Hilliard head coach Donald
Walker said his players now need to focus on giv-
ing an all-out, 11-man effort when they're on the foot-
ball field. With the team's first district game loom-
ing on the road against Mayo-Lafayette tonight,
Walker said all attention needs to be on the district,
not the state. Everything hinges on the players
believing they are talented enough to win games,
"Until our kids start believing in the potential
they have, that's exactly what it will be just poten-
tial," Walker said. "We're getting some good indi-
vidual efforts from a handful of guys but we're not
getting it from a lot of others. Everyone, including
us coaches, expected big things from this bunch.
But if the players don't realize the opportunity they
have, we might end up being just another better-
than-average Hilliard football team that wins seven
games or so." '
The Flashes appeared confident during their
first drive against Charlton, however, the team
failed to score and things went downhill from there,
Running back Lemuel Walker gave Charlton the
lead with a nice run for a touchdown and followed
that up with a two-point conversion run that made
it 8-0 Indians with 2:35 to go in the first quarter.
Walker again punched it in from four yards out
with 10:58 to go in the half, giving the Indians a 14-
0 lead after the failed extra point
The Flashes shot themselves in the foot on their
next possession, as QB Daniel "Big Boy" Thomas
coughed up a fumble with 10:16 to play in the half,
setting up a 3-yard touchdown pass from Dwight
Dasher to LT. Glover. An extra-point kick by Glover
made it 21-0 Indians.
Hilliard finally found the scoreboard with 3:56 to
go in the first half on a powerful 4-yard run by RB
Dennis Alderman, making the score 21-6 after the.
failed 2-point conversion attempt
- Just over two minutes later, however, Dasher ran
ith tArh' h'i'-ds ouTiand kickedlhe extra poiit
to give the Indians a commanding 28-6 lead.
Alderman found pay dirt one last time in the first
half as he plowed over a defender into the end zone
as time expired. Abusted play turned into a 2-point
conversion for Hilliard, who went into the locker
room trailing 28-14.
Hilliard got the break it was looking for on
Charlton's first drive of the second half, as Roderick
Alderman recovered a fumble in Indians' territory.
But a bad exchange on the very next play gave it
back to the Indians, who scored the next 13 points
to put the game out of reach.
Hilliard RB Ralph Bolden scored on a run around
the right end with 3:52 to play and Thomas scored
with 34 seconds to play to make the final score
Dennis Alderman carried 13 times for 124 yards
to lead the Flashes, while Bolden carried 11 times
for 91 yards and Thomas gained 68 yards on 14 car-
ries. Defensive lineman and senior Damien Wade
led all Hilliard tacklers with nine, while Thomas,
Bolden, senior Rustyn Reed and senior Amos
Geiger all had eight stops. Reed also added a sack
late in the game.
Hilliard turned the ball over six times four
fumbles and two interceptions.
Walker said the odds are stacked against his
team heading into Mayo.
"They probably have a lot of confidence having
beat us the last two years," the coach said. "They're
a lot like West Nassau in that they're big, they have
a big fullback that hurt us in the past They're prob-
ably tired of hearing about Hilliard. All the talk
about No. 2 in the state has put a big target on our
Hilliard and Mayo are set to kick at 7:30 p.m.

for another festival
The Amelia Book Island Festival
began in 2001. Amelia Island resi-
dents Don and Andrea Parker and
Joani and Joe Selement shared a,
dream their love of books and
enthusiasm for their island home.
They founded a non-profit
organization celebrating the written
word. The festival takes place the
first weekend of October in
Fernandina Beach and each year
expands to offer opportunities to a
"We set out to create an afford-
able, lively event promoting two
concepts that reading is great
fun, and good writing makes good
reading," Joani Selement explains.
She knew the story of Hay-on-Wye,
a hamlet where Welsh book lovers
launched their Book Town move-
ment in 1988.
"We wanted to go one better -
being unique as the Book Island,"
says Don Parker, festival chairman.
The annual festival brings
renowned authors, writers and
book lovers together for a variety of
activities including readings, talks,
discussions and social events.
From the beginning the
"Authors-in-Schools" day has been
an important aspect of the suc-
cessful event Writers, poets and
storytellers go out to the schools
and spend time with local children
(of all a.u.es.
The two headline authors are
David Liss and Susan Vreeland.
Both utilhors are keynote speak-
ers for the Lunch with Authors
event at noon on Saturday, Oct. 1,
and will participate in other events
throughout the festival.
Liss is the author of three mys-
tery novels set in early 18th centu-
ry London: A Conspiracy of Paper,
winner of the 2001 Edgar award
for best first novel; The Coffee
Trader; and A Spectacle of
Corruption, a national bestseller.
Publisher's Weekly gives him rave
reviews, "Mystery and mainstream
readers with a taste for gritty his-
torical fiction will relish Liss's glo-
rious dialogue, lively rogues (and)
fascinating setting." Liss lives in
San Antonio with his wife and
daughter. For more information,

Vreeland, an award-winning
author, has received great response
and praise for her lush and original
novels that center on artists and
the lives their paintings have
'There is so much strife and
tension in the world that I find the
silent world of paintings from the
past both hopeful and healing," said
Vreeland, author of national best-
sellers The Passion of Artemisia
and Girl in Hyacinth Blue.

In the United States, Septem-
ber marks Banned Books Week
(Sept 24-Oct. 1), a time where the
issue of censorship is explored,
discussed and debated. It is horri-
fying to most to learn that some-
one would write a book to deny
the Holocaust and disturbing to
many to see books and web sites
filled with erroneous facts and
hateful intentions. There is no
question that the freedom of
speech has a dark side.
Yet the debate continues on
more subjective and ambiguous
topics, like what constitutes art,
historical truth, evolution of life
and what language is acceptable -
and in what context. On an ongo-
ing basis in cities across the coun-
try, schools and libraries are chal-

In an effort to create aware-
ness about the negative influence
of censorship on the greater soci-
ety, Banned Books Week is spon-
sored by the American Library
Association, the American
Booksellers Foundation for Free
Expression, the Association of
American Publishers and the
American Society of Journalists
and Authors. Their goal is to con-
vey that the freedom of expres-
sion is critical to the free flow of
ideas and our ability to write and
read without government inter-
vention or slanderous attacks
regarding personal preferences.
The Amelia Book Island
Festival is our local celebration of
the freedom to read. At the end of
September, bestselling and debut
authors, poets and illustrators will
join us to explore the world of
ideas through the written word.
When you think of a book festival
like ours taking place in a former
communist country like Poland,
its value becomes even more
clear. There is great privilege in
the freedom of speech and the
freedom to read. And it is worth
