City may


ponder


charter


changes

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
The Fernandina Beach Com-
mission may vote to place a charter
change on the next election ballot.
Commissioners asked City
Attorney Debra Braga to revise the
section of the city charter that out-
lines the length of contract and sev-
erance pay for the city manager.
Braga removed language limit-
ing the contract to 12 months and a
statement referring to compensa-
tion.
Executive search consultant
Colin Baenziger recommended the
amendments to entice a group of
high-quality candidates to apply for
the city manager vacancy.
The revised section makes the
city manager a regular employee
of the city and allows the city com-
mission "to establish an appropriate
contract for the city manager" and
to set terms for the position by ordi-
nance.
"If you're happy with it we can
bring it back for first reading,"
Braga said.
Citizens must vote to amend the
charter.
But during the discussion, com-
missioners said they also want to
investigate a broader issue. Can
Fernandina Beach function more
effectively with a different form of
government?

realize that tere are some prob-
lems with this yff ofgoverikfC"

Nassau County paid more than
a quarter of a million dollars Dec. 1

One employee received checks

others were able to cash in upwards
of $6,000 in exchange for not taking
their allotted time off.

If you are one of those confused by the new
Medicare Prescription Program, you are not alone.
Marilyn Parker, a volunteer representative of the
SHINE organization (Serving Health Insurance Needs
of Elders), tried to bring clarity to the situation in a pub-
lic seminar presented at First Baptist Church on Nov.
30.
"The biggest thing I hear is, 'It's so confusing.'
But the plans are individualized so as to serve the vary-
ing prescription drug needs of senior citizens," said
Parker.
"First of all, all those who have Medicare parts A
and B are entitled to enroll. These plans are offered
through private insurance companies. Medicare has
contracted with these companies and has set up rules
and guidelines, which they must follow. But they are
not Medicare plans," said Parker.
There are three types of plan from which to choose:
The stand-alone plan, called PDP; the Medicare

whatever current prescription coverage you may have.
A person who now has and wants to continue the
standard Medicare plan, which does not cover pre-
scription medications (except for certain ongoing
medical conditions), would choose the PDP plan.
Most, but not all, of the insurance plans in this
category require a $250 annual deductible and a
monthly charge. Different plans offered by different
insurance companies require various monthly charges,

$42 million for St. Marys mill


RENEE M. LISS
Community Newspapers
Jacksonville-based LandMar
Group was the successful bidder
for Durango-Georgia paper mill
properties in St. Marys, Ga., bank-
ruptcy trustees announced
Wednesday night. A residential/
commercial complex is planned for
the 720-acre waterfront site.
LandMar, developer of the
Osprey Cove subdivision off St.
Marys Road and the Northhamp-
ton subdivision in Nassau County,
bid $36.45 million with $18.5
million in cash at closing April 30
and the remainder to be paid
over a three-year period at 8 per-
cent interest. The company's bid
was highest compared to two other


bidders.
LandMar's bid did not include
four timber tracts or the paper
mill's equipment. Michael Fox
International bid $2.8 million for
the paper mill's equipment and
other bidders won the timber tracts
for $2.6 million.
The total netted at the auction
was $42.086 million.
The paper mill, founded by the
late Howard Gilman in the 1940s,
shut down and the company filed
for bankruptcy in November 2002.
The approximately 900 former
employees of the mill are owed
somewhere between $3 million and
$4 million, said Ward Stone, attor-
ney for the creditors. He said if the
closing with LandMar goes
through as planned creditors could

begin seeing some of that money
by May 1.
Because the mill is waterfront
property, it became prime real
estate property. Jim Cullis, region-
al manager for LandMar, said fur-
ther study needs to be done before
the company's plans can be final-
ized.
"We want to create a riverfront
village that fits in well with St.
Marys," Cullis said. Preliminary
plans include residential housing,
a hotel, shops and a marina.
It is estimated that it will cost up
to $5 million to clean up the prop-
erty, which is affected by federal
laws governing brownfields, prop-
erties that have the potential pres-
ence of a hazardous substance, pol-
lutant or contaminant.

I t can happen anywhere, any-
time, on the golf course, at
the workplace, at a holiday
party. And often it goes

which is usually caused by a
blood clot in an artery that
blocks blood flow to the brain.
Less often, a stroke can be
caused by a hemorrhage in a
blood vessel in the brain.
Sometimes symptoms of a
stroke are difficult to identify by
laypersons and that can spell

apply. They will be signed up
automatically, and will receive a
card by mail before Jan. 1 to pres-
ent to pharmacies when they pur-
chase prescriptions. They will
have no fees at all to pay. .
There is also extra financial
help for people with limited
incomes and assets. You may
qualify for this help if your
income is below $14,355 a year
(including Social Security pay-
ments) or $19,245 if you are mar-
ried and living with your spouse.
The income level is higher for
those who have dependent chil-
dren or grandchildren living in
the home.
Assets like bank accounts,
bonds and life insurance policies
must be below $11,500 (for sin-
gles) or $23,000 (for married cou-
ples). Homes and cars are
exempt.
The third option, keeping
whatever current prescription
coverage you may have, may be
better if your prescription drug
expenses fall into the gap, or
"doughnut hole" as it is called,
between $2,250 and $5,100. No
help at all from the plans is avail-
able for drug costs between these
two annual amounts.
It is only after costs are over
$5,100 that the Medicare plans
kick in again and offer relief- 95
percent of drug expenses.
The program was structured
in this way to offer some; assis-
tance to a great many people
while controlling the costs but
it penalizes those whose pre-
scription costs are higher than
most, yet not considered cata-
strophic.
While no one is obligated to
sign up for a plan, there is a stick
held over the heads of those who
don't: Those who wait intil after
May 15 to sign up will incur a
penalty of 1 percent per month for
each month you wait. In other
words, if youwait a year h. -igr,
up, your monthly premipumill
cost 12 percent more annually
for as long as you are in a
Medicare prescription plan. Wait
15 months, and it will cost you
15 percent more a year and so
on.
Also, it is important to know
that all discount programs, such
as Silver Saver and others, will
be discontinued after Dec. 31, so
those who decide to wait need to
realize that they cannot use these
discount cards after that date.
After choosing a type of plan,
things get more complicated.
There are nine national and 40
or more local plans, and each
individual must decide which to
choose. That isn't easy, because
different plans offer coverage for
different drugs, and a particular
plan may list some of the med-
ications a person needs but not
others.
Plans have different costs, too.
Some have no deductible, but a
higher monthly fee, and others
have a deductible but lower
monthly cost. And some cover
many more drugs than others.
"If you travel a lot, you proba-
bly should consider a national
plan that will be accepted any-
where," advises Parker.
After those decisions are
made, then one must choose a
pharmacy that offers the partic-
ular drugs at the best price, since
all plans pay a percentage of the
price and the consumer pays the
rest.
At the seminar, which, was
crowded with senior citizens,
there was a lot of frustration and
even anger expressed concern-
ing the complexity of the
Medicare Prescription Program.
Seniors are struggling with the
problems associated with under-
standing and choosing from the
many options a formidable task
at any age. Most feel that its
biggest drawbacks are that it is
unnecessarily complicated and
the complete lack of help for


those whose expenses fall into
the so-called "doughnut hole."

BUY Continued from 1A
employees also received $4,000 or
more in unused sick leave.
In contrast, only two county
employees outside the fire depart-
ment cashed in their annual leave.
Both received a few hundred dol-
lars.
However, sick leave buy-back
was cashed in by a variety of depart-
ments.
Five road and bridge employees
sold back sick leave amounting to
about $2,000 each. The county also
paid almost $3,000 to county
Maintenance Director Daniel
Salmon for unused sick days, and
about $2,000 to employees in capi-
tol projects, transportation mainte-
nance and engineering.
County Fire Chief Chuck
Cooper is quick to defend the buy-
back program as a way for his
department to encourage employ-
ees to work instead of taking their
paid time off. He said this way they
keep more personnel on hand in a
department that's understaffed.
"If they take annual leave or sick
leave, we have to pay someone
(overtime) to fill their spot," he said.
"And the county administrator has
said his No. 1 priority this year is to
keep overtime to a minimum."
Cooper said the buy-back rates
for fire union employees are high-
er because the union gets more
hours of leave each year than non-
union employees.
Full-time union firefighters work
24-hour shifts, as opposed to non-
union eight-hour shifts. They also
are paid 12 hours at time-and-a-half
for each holiday they choose to
work, Cooper said.
According to the contract, the
union is awarded 12 holidays a year,
and firefighters also get one 24-hour
shift of sick leave each month.
By the end of the year, those
hours alone add up to hundreds of
hours of leave an employee can
cash in for a sizable check.
Cooper is not a union member,
but is eligible for sick leave, which
he bought back for $2,891 this year,
according to the clerk's office.
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney has said he'd like to see
the county institute a "use it or lose
it" policy where employees in all
departments either use their allot-
ted vacation and sick days or let
them expire without getting paid.
However, he said the county is
locked into the policy with the fire
and rescue union since the latest
four-year contract is binding until
2008.

To readdress that policy, the
union would have to agree to revis-
it the issue of leave or buy back.
When asked if he felt paying a
firefighter $15,000 for leave is exces-
sive, Mahaney said he has not inves-
tigated it because he won't be able
to do anything about it for a few
years.
"So I haven't spent time analyz-
ing what's in this very complicated
(union contract)," he said. "There's
a couple of things that jump out at
me, quite frankly."
Mahaney said he had very little
input on the contract because the
majority of the union negotiations
took place before he began working
for the county in September
2004.
County Commission Chair
Ansley Acree spoke out against
approving the contract because of
concerns about the cost to the coun-
ty, including the accumulation of
unused leave.

CITY Continued from 1A
committee study the city's gov-
ernment, examine other types of
government, such as a mayor-
council form, and bring recom-
mendations to the commission for
the 2007 ballot.
"I have some problems with
this form of government,"
Commissioner John Crow said.
With a city manager form of gov-
ernment, "It doesn't seem that
there is anyone directly responsi-
ble to the citizenry who can have
an impact."
A commissioner, "being 20
percent of the vote, you can't do
anything," he said.
I still think the city clerk needs
to be under the city manager,"
Crow said.
"I don't understand how we
can have an employee and
the employees that work for
that employee work for the city
manager," he said. "It doesn't
make sense to me that that's an
effective form of government or
an effective way to get things
done."
"The first year I was on the
commission, I tried to change it
back to where the clerk would be
underneath the city manager,"
Gerrity said, "and it was just basi-
cally an uproar ... That's one of
the things I would like a commit-
tee to study."
Another issue with having an
elected mayor "is having a differ-
ent mayor- every term,"
Commissioner Bill Leeper said.
This would- create a turnover
similar to what the city has expe-
rienced with city managers, he
said.
'Too many people who sit at
this table forget why they're here,"
Vice Mayor Beano Roberts said.


"Commissioners are elected to
set policy for the city," he said.
"I couldn't dream of being the
mayor of this city and running it
like the city manager does,"
Roberts said. "I think if it can work
right, it can work well the way we
have it."
The city's problems "come
from people who shouldn't be at
this table and people out there
who have their own vested inter-
est," he said. "They become the
spokesman for the community vir-
tually because so many good peo-
ple don't say anything."
The people "who make all the
noise, unfortunately, have influ-
ence over some commissioners,
because commissioners see that
as votes," he said.
"When I ran for office, I ran
on one thing, community service.
I wasn't apolitical in this area or
that area This is what I've
given to the community, and if
that doesn't deserve me being at
this table then Idon't need to be
here," Roberts said.
"I have a degree in this sort of
thing," Mayor Ken Walker said.
A city-manager form of govern-
ment, "for the most part, seems to
work best for a city our size. Even
if you had a strong mayor, you
would have to have somebody on
staff that would be well versed" in
municipal rules, regulations, state
and federal laws.
"Maybe there is no better way,"
Gerrity said. But for a small city,
"We have a lot of big city issues
and amenities," including the
beaches, the marina and the golf
course.
"It's what we got It may not
be perfect," Walker said. "But I
think for a city of our size it works
quite well."

At 71 floats, West Side Christmas parade biggest yet


LILSPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent
Crowds along the parade
route Saturday were not only big-
ger than ever, but the Greater
Nassau County Chamber of
Commerce Annual Christmas
Parade itself was the biggest it
has ever been, with 71 floats.
That's 16 more than last year.
It took 43 minutes for the
parade to travel from Dixie
Avenue, where the floats lined
up, to Fifth Street, where it dis-
persed.
People who attend the annual
Christmas parades in Callahan
have learned that if they want to
find parking places anywhere
near the route along US 1, they
have to be in Callahan by about
9:30 a.m. on parade day, or they'll
be hiking from distant places.
Another problem is in staking
out claims for vantage points
from which to view the event.
Judging from all the filled
eatery parking lots along the
way, business was very brisk for
them, making this year's parade
a win/win situation for everyone;
area businesses, parade specta-
tors and ultimately, the chamber.
In addition to the floats repre-
senting local businesses, there
were numerous others transport-
ing beauty queens, Boy Scouts,
Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and
Brownies from Hilliard and
Callahan, marching bands from
Callahan, several Shriner units,
county officials, the town govern-
ments from Callahan and
Hilliard, county fire and rescue
units, private individuals and
local church groups.
After the parade, many of the
spectators went to see what has
happening at the Annual Arts
and Crafts Show, also sponsored
by the GNCCC.

a lot of booths selling purses,
personalized T-shirts, jewelry,
kitchen accessories, gift baskets,
Christmas decorations and
sweets to nibble on while "win-
dow shopping" at all the other

Then, of course, Santa Claus

FINANCE Continued from IA
planning and overall fiscal man-
agement of Nassau County,"
Mahaney said.
Since 2003-4, the clerk of court
has served as the commission's
designated budget officer. His
finance staff works closely with the
county administrator's office to set
up the commission's budget and
monitor its finances.
Clerk of Court John Crawford
said Monday he would support the
commission's effort to internalize its
budget office if it voted to do so.
"They're seeking more control
directly on their own. I support it,
we just need to help get it set up,"
he said.
Crawford said if the positions
are added his office would continue
to monitor the commission's
finances, check bills and perform its
pre-audit procedures in order to
maintain "checks and balances."
The administrative services
position was eliminated after
Henries resigned in 2004. County
officials criticized her handling of
the 2003-4 budget, then demoted
her for allegedly mishandling an
$850 county deposit.
Prior to the 2003-4 budget, the
office's accounting specialist and
budget analyst resigned that spring.
Mahaney was not working in
the county at that time, but acknowl-
edged there were problems the last
time the county administrator's
office handled the budget.
"It's my understanding there
were problems when they tried this
before," he said. "But I'm confident
that with the right people, we'll be
up to the task. Crawford has said
since day one that he'd like to see
the (commission) take that func-
tion back, and the commission has
expressed a willingness to take it
back when we get to that point.
We're at that point"
The commission will consider
the proposal at its Wednesday meet-
ing scheduled for 6 p.m. at the com-
mission chambers in the Nassau
County Governmental Complex on
Nassau Place Road in Yulee.
Should the commission elect to
add the positions, Mahaney said
they would be paid for with funds
from the more than $4 million the
county has in reserves for alloca-
tion.

3 accused:


Medicaid


fraud

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Three former case managers for
Sutton Place Behavioral Health Inc.
are facing charges of Medicaid
fraud for allegedly submitting falsi-
fied time sheets in 2003.
Anthony Wayne Lee, 32, of
Folkston, Ga., Heidi Lynn Fretheim,
31, of St Marys, Ga., and Joshua
Tyrone Sutton, 31, of Middleburg
were arrested Feb. 25 and have
been charged with two counts of
making a false Medicaid claim and
one count of grand theft. All three
have pleaded not guilty to the
charges.
Their trial is set to begin on
March 27.
Assistant State Attorney "Doc"
Burgess said the state attorney gen-
eral's office is handling the case
against the three.
Burgess said Lee, Fretheim and
Sutton are accused of filling out
time cards for 15-minute increments
for time spent on clients when the
actual time spent was less than 15
minutes.
Susan Haag, with the Attorney
General's Office Medicaid Fraud
Control Unit, is prosectiting the
case. Haag was not available for
comment
According to Assistant Public
Defender Courtenay Miller, who is
representing Fretheim, the amount
the three are accused of defrauding
Medicaid is $3,053.75, which has
been reimbursed to the state by
Sutton Place.
Miller said his client and her
codefendants were filling out time
sheets as they were instructed to do
by their supervisors, and that they
did not receive any of the overpay-
ment
"Our clients did not receive any-
thing," he said. "They were just act-
ing in the scope of their employ-
ment as they were trained."

County finance director reassigned


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Nassau County Finance
Director Ted Selby was reassigned
Wednesday, a week after admit-
ting to an error that prompted a
$1.7 million budget amendment
According to his boss, Clerk of
Court John Crawford, recently pro-
moted Deputy Comptroller Chris
Lacambra will take over Selby's
management responsibilities.
However, Crawford said Selby
will retain his title of finance direc-
tor and his salary of $67,962 will


not be affected. Selby, 56, joined
the clerk's office as finance direc-
tor in 1998 after retiring from the
Navy.
As part of his duties, Selby was
intricately involved in preparing
the budgets and monitoring the
finances of both the clerk's office
and the county commission.
Last week, an error admitted
by Selby and the clerk's finance
office prompted a $1.7 million
budget amendment, two months
after the budget was approved in
October.
The county had budgeted one-


cent sales tax revenue to pay off
debt last year, but recently discov-
ered that is an improper use of
sales tax revenue.
In a letter to Selby dated
Wednesday, Crawford cites that
error as well as other high-profile
issues involving the clerk's finance
office as reasons for the action.
Earlier this year, it was discov-
ered former finance employee Julie
Mixon, a subordinate of Selby, had
stolen more than $1 million from
the clerk's finance office for years
without detection by "managenient
or the county's outside auditor."


The letter also cites the pay-
ment of unperformed work at the
Nassau County Judicial Annex,
which led to a multi-month "fact-
finding" investigation by county
officials.
"I sincerely value our profes-
sional relationship and am confi-


dent I can count on your support as
we journey down this new road of
increased accountability and man-

Age of abundance


Especially during the holi-
day season, ift's easy to
see that the days when
stores would have lean
stock levels a few days before
Christmas are long gone. There
is more retail space than ever in
our history. Add the relatively
new phenomenon of online shop-
ping and it is obvious that we are
in the age of abundance and
choice.
Yet more doesn't necessarily
mean better. Eat too much of one
thing and you can get that awful
feeling you've overdone it. More
toys for kids aren't necessarily
best for them. And more informa-
tion can make lifeeven more con-
fusing and cumbersome.
S R.R Bowker, a leading compa-
ny in the bcokindustry, noted
that publishers have really picked
up momentum book production
skyrocketed by more than 30 per-
cent in 2004, hitting 195,000
titles. Look online and be greeted
with what seems like an infinite
number of sources of informa-
tion.

DICKIE ANDERSON
For the News-Leader

Julie Baumgold and her hus-
band, Ed.Kosner, enjoy living in
the best of two very different
worlds. One is fact-paced New
York City, where they both enjoy
successful careers, and the other
their new found getaway, Amelia
Island.
Baumgold's latest book, The
Diamond, has just been pub-
lished by Simon and Shuster. The
Diamond is a brilliant, dazzling
historical novel about a famous
diamond one of the biggest in
the world that passed from the
hands of William Pitt's grandfa-
ther to the French kings and
Napoleon, linking many of the
most famous personalities of the
eighteenth and nineteenth cen-
turies.
Baumgold's credentials are
impressive. She is a former con-
tributing editor of New York,
Esquire, and Vogue. She has been
an essayist (The Best American
Essays 1996), poet (Mademoiselle
Poetry Prize) and the columnist
"Mr. Peepers" for New York and
Esquire. She is the author of .
Creatures of Habit.
"I was on Amelia Island when
the book was born. We were stay-
ing at The Ritz-Carlton looking
for an apartment to buy when
Michael Korda, the editor in chief
at Simon & Schuster, called and
said he loved The Diamond and


Julie Baumgold will sign
copies of her book from
noon to 4 p.m. Saturday
at The Plantation Shop,
Amelia Island Plantation.
She is available for book
club meetings and
speaking opportunities.

jbaumgold @ ao.com.


would publish and edit it."
How did the couple find
Amelia Island? Baumtgold had
heard from a Bostoft friend that
the island's beach was hard
enough to run on arid the image
of running by the sea sold her.
She now enjoys regular runs on
the beach and practicing yoga
when on the island.
"I have always wanted to live
by the ocean.. Leven drove the,
whole California coast looking for
the perfect beach. Like living in
nature the light that comes in
all hours of the day, the air, the
southernness of the people, the
sound of the surf. the unspoiled
charm of the, town of Fernhndina
Beach and, of course, the exotic
history of the island."
Why did she pick a diamond
as the centerpiece of her story?
"The Diamond is the story of
an object traveling through time.
Great diamonds attract great fig-
tres, and this particular diamond


attracted, repelled, terrified and
obsessed many from the Sun
King, Louis XV and XVI, Marie
Antoinette and two Napoleons.
By telling their stories I tell the
story of the Regent. I believe as
do the Buddhists that the dia-
mond is a way to awareness
because it cuts through the uni-
verse of illusion."
The idea first came to her
while working on another book.
Baumgold found Madame who,
though a 17th century German ,
princess, reminded her of herself.
Madame's son was the Regent of
France between Louis XIV and
XV and bought the diamond. At
the same time, Baumgold found a.;
book of famous diamonds that
featured the Regent diamond and
put the kwr together.
Baumgold looks forward to
getting to know her island home
and sharing her enthusiasm for
the intriguing story she shares in
her latest book, The Diamond.

The Amelia Book Island,
Festival awarded graduate student ,,
Sarah Baxter with the 2005 Writers -
Scholarship in Memory of Christa
Powell Walley.
Robert Powell, Christa's father,
presented the $2,000 scholarship to
Baxter during the festival's Lunch
with Authors event Oct. 1.
: Baxter graduated magna cum
laude from Wheaton College in
Wheaton, Ill., and is working
toward her master's degree in
English at the University of North
Florida.
"Finding out that I received this
scholarship was a great encour-
agement to me as a writer," Baxter
said. "As an undergrad, I studied
biology, but toward the end of my
program, I realized I wanted to be
a writer. Receiving the scholarship
was anaffirmation that I'm heading
in the right direction and that I can
achieve my dream of being a
writer."
The scholarship is dedicated to
encouraging student writers in,
their pursuit of a literary career.
The scholarship honors the mem-
ory of Christa Powell Walley and
her loye for writing. Christa died in
a car accident in 1987, and her par-
ents, Billy and Robert Powell of
Amelia Island, are major donors
tothe scholarship fund.

Still waters run


deep for fish-.


and submarines

After almost a year living in Fernandina,
here are a few observations:
Northeast Florida is over-fished.
I can personally attest to this
because in 20 attempts I've landed only four fish.
I tallied that up Saturday after another drive
home with nothing but an empty cooler and a
sand-filled car.
That's pretty lousy con-
sidering I'm competing with.
a prehistoric animal with the
brain the size of a pea that
eats not out of hunger, but
out of sheer compulsion -
anything that is dead, shiny,
smelly or fits in its mouth.
I have an entire arsenal of
shiny, small, smelly things in
n. a bucket that sits in the
Bewamin trunk of my car. Ive yet to
Rice splurge for a new pair of
-, -... *shoes si"cg my move here,
NEWSROOM but I've tably spent the
equivalent of a new pair of
VIEWS Ferragamos on shiny, small,
smelly things.
I've tried rods, spinners, cast nets, jigs, live
minnows, dead shrimp, "fresh dead" shrimp,
squid, chicken livers and even a can of Alpo. I've,
tried fishing in the morning and fishing in the
evening. I've fished them deep and I've fished
them shallow. I've fished while drinking beer and
once tried not drinking beer. I have even applied
sunblock before going to bed at night so that the
scent of Panama Jack "45" on my hands doesn't
taint the bait the next morning and tip off the
fish.
And yet the score remains:
Me 4, Fish 20.
Silent killers.
During one of my 20 fishing attempts I was
standing on the beach in front of Fort Clinch.
I turned my back on the water for about two
minutes. Then when I turned back around I
found, myself face-to-face with a 17,000-ton Ohio-
class submarine armed with 24 Trident II mis-
siles each carrying 500kilaton nuclear warheads
capable of destroying all life as we know it within
a 1,000 square mile radius.
And somehow it snuck up on me.
Florida is home to giant cockroaches.
I've killed so many "palmetto bugs" I'm suffer.
ing from flashbacks and dealing with guilt. These
things get so big here it's less like squashing a
bug and more like bringing down a deer.
Still I don't think a deer carcass could leave as
big a mess on the kitchen floor.
But after months of research and experimenta-
tion I've finally turned the corner on these
"roaches with Florida plates."
(Actually, they're not palmetto bugs but an
American cockroach. Palmetto bugs, I've learned,
live primarily in palmetto trees and smell like rot-
ten eggs when you squash them).
But Pariplaneta americana lay 16 eggs a week,
live for more than a year, and sprays and fumiga-
tion can never destroy them, only contain them.
They've been around for 300 million years and
entomologists consider them to be the most
adaptable and successful animals to ever inhabit
the planet They've had nine months to prove it at
my house, and after another 300 million years of
trying to annihilate them I'm sure they'll still be
procreating under my sink.

Giving thanks for citizen soldiers


The following is a re-print of a column which
I wrote during last year's Christmas season.
I hope its message still speaks to each of
you:
Having been born and raised in Michigan, I
found this week's cold temperatures a happy
reminder of the weather we used to look forward to
as Christmas approached. To my Floridian wife,
however, the recent sub-freezing temps confirmed
her decision that her permanent address will always
be somewhere south of Georgia.
Regardless of where each of us has come from,
winters on Amelia Island and the surrounding areas
are relatively mild. Even when we are hit with a
freeze, it is normally short-lived and fairly tolerable.
Whatever minor discomforts we might experience
can usually be quickly and easily remedied with a
thermostat adjustment, an extra blanket or (some-
thing we sorely missed in South Florida) a roaring
fire in the fireplace. In fact, most of us have been so
blessed with the "good life," we forget the many sac-
rifices that have been made by others which allow
us to enjoy the Christmas season in relative safety
and comfort.,
As a student of American military history, I am
always humbled when I read of the incredible condi-
tions that faced George Washington and the
Continental Army as they camped at Valley Forge
during the winter of 1777-78. While the enemy was
lodged in relative comfort in Philadelphia and
across the river in Trenton, NJ., the 12,000 men of
Washington's army faced a savage winter without
adequate food, shelter or clothing. More than 2,500
men died from sickness, hunger and the freezing
weather.
There was no thermostat to adjust, no extra blan-
ket or sweater to pull on, and the fires were camp-
fires which were few and inefficient. And yet, as
Private Joseph Martin of the 8th Connecticut


Regiment put it in December,
1777, 'We had engaged in the
defense of our wounded coun-
try and ... we were determined
to persevere." Such persever-
ance over that Christmas 228
years ago led to our nation's
independence.
Sixty-one years ago this very
week, our nation was again
engaged in a war; this time to
Mike Boyle save the world from the horrors
of fascism. In December 1944,
Germany had launched its last-
WAITA gasp attack against American
MINUTE and Allied troops along the
German and Belgian border.
More American soldiers (600,000) fought in what
was called the "Battle of the Bulge" than any other
battle in all of America's wars. At the conclusion of
the battle in January 1945, there had been 81,000
American casualties, including 19,000 that had paid
the ultimate price. What contributed heavily to the
losses was the weather, which has been described
as "the coldest, snowiest weather in memory in the
Ardennes Forest"
And like the patriots before them at Valley Forge,
the warriors of 1944 refused to give up, even when
they were surrounded and nearly out of food and
ammunition. They continued to fight and hold on,
even in'sub-freezing temperatures and snowstorms.
This spirit of courage and independence was ulti-
mately summed up in one word. When the Germans
demanded the surrender of our beleaguered troops
at Bastogne, our commander, Gen. Anthony
McAuliffe, responded, "Nuts!"
In 2005 we must remember that just as our best
and bravest endured tremendous hardships on the
battlefields in 1777 to gain our independence, and


similar patriots made similar sacrifices in 1944 to
keep a mad tyrant from ruling the world, today we
have brave men and women serving our country
thousands of miles from home who are protecting
us from terrorism.
So why, at this sacred and joyful time of year,
have I chosen to write about conflict, weather and
sacrifice? Because this is the perfect time to reflect
upon those same elements and how they affected
the first Christmas 2000 years ago.
Of all the stories in the Bible, most Christians
(especially children) know the one describing the
birth of the Savior. Israel was a territory occupied
by the Romans, and times were difficult for its citi-
zens. The weather was cold, perhaps even snowy,
and the entire environment was inhospitable. And
just as the warriors described earlier had no protec-
tion from the winter storms, Joseph and Mary were
forced to seek shelter in a stable among the farm
animals.
In all of these examples, the participants had lit-
tie control over their circumstances, and were
required to make the best of what they had been
given. We should all be grateful that none of them
gave up despite the challenges they faced.
So as cold weather descends on our community
and we turn up the thermostat or throw another log
on the cozy fire, let us remember those families who
have members serving in the Armed Forces, and
give thanks that citizen soldiers continue to guaran-
tee our freedom in this life. And in a few weeks, as
we attend Christmas services at the church of our
choice, let us give thanks that the Christ child has
guaranteed our freedom in the next life.
I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and God's
greatest blessings in the coming year.

years as an FBI agent. His column appears Fridays.

If I was a reporter rather than a librarian, and if'I
wanted to present an accurate picture of the mold issue
at Yulee Primary, I would first access the News-Leader
files from 1993-1994.1 I would then carefully read every
one of my e-mails since Aug. 8,2004. The series of "call
and response" e-mails that started on that day pro-
vides a clear and accurate scope and sequence of my
efforts and my priorities regarding the mold in my
library. Since these e-mails are available to the News-
Leader, I suggest you publish them all, in their entire-
ty. I am nota reporter, but I am an advocate for children.

Interacingwithmanatees
I I enjoyed reaitgjhe recent Viewpo .i;ggy
about manatees (The manatees of Egars Creek, Norl6
30). The writer had done quite a bit of research in
developing her piece. However, there are a couple of
things that I would like to point out that were not made
clear in the story.
It is actually illegal to provide food or water to man-
atees (or any marine mammal). Manatees are capable
of drinking fresh water, and will do so in areas where
it is available, however they can obtain all of the fresh
water that they need by eating plants. Manatees, like
most mammals, are capable of learning behaviors, and
it is often these learned behaviors that bring them into
areas where they are at risk of getting hit by boats.
When people hang a freshwater hose off the end of a
boat or dock, the manatees learn to come to these
areas to find water, but these are often areas where
there is boat traffic.
It is also illegal to pet manatees in the wild. You may
be asked to leave the water at some state park springs
if manatees enter the area. Some areas (e.g. Crystal
River) allow organized snorkel trips to view manatees,
but touching the manatees is not allowed. The reason
for not petting manatees is similar to the reason for not
giving them food or water they learn to associate
humans (and often boats) with a "reward" and this
may cause them to approach boats, marinas and peo-
ple in areas where it is not safe to do so.
As a side note, it is also illegal to feed raccoons, foxes
and alligators in Florida as this can lead to undesired
interactions between these wild animals and humans
or pets.
In addition to the Save the Manatee website men-
tioned in the Viewpoint column, I encourage people
interested in learning about the laws relating to man-
atees and other wild animals to visit the web site of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission,
www.myfwc.com.

Swan song
We have been following the continuing saga that
revolves around the eligibility of David Swan for this
upcoming basketball season. We are personal friends
of the family and supporters of the local high school.
sports programs. The situation that is happening with
him now though, has started to sway our loyalty
towards the local coaches and administration.
Principal Jane Arnold and the athletic staff at
Fernandina Beach High School have refused to sign
a waiver to let David, one of the state's best junior
basketball players, attend one of the top 10 basketball
programs in the nation. This treatment could cost
David a chance to play at a top Division 1A college bas-
ketball program all because the administration is too
selfish to let one of their best players play for another
school, even though they are not in their district.
David has even inquired about returning to play at
Fernandina this season, just so he can play some-
where, but Mrs. Arnold has denied that possibility as
well. The administration needs to get over the fact
that they are losing a player of his caliber and let him
pursue his dream of playing at a top college basketball
program. Hopefully, the community will see that the
powers to be are wrong in this case and will join us in
voicing their disapproval of this type of treatment.

I'm writing this letter to urge the school system to
sign on the dotted line and allow David Swan to pur-

A ZOOMLERBIGi6BOX BiRIERNALM THE US. BORDER WT MISCO

sue this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend and play
basketball for Arlington Country Day. I'm in hopes that
the current members of Fernandina Beach High School
and school board members are not preventing David
from pursuing this dream due to selfish reasons.
If I'm remembering correctly, FBHS couldn't wait
for David to become a part of the FBHS basketball
team so they pursued him and allowed him to play for
the high school team while he was still in middle
school. I'm sure that the school board wouldn't have
allowed this to happen if it wasn't going to be to their.
advantage to have a student with his ability play for their
team. This makes us wonder why the school system
would want to prevent David from pursuing his dream
now? rm thinking that this wouldn't be happening if the
student was one of their own. This doesn't set a good
example for future students who may want to pursue
their own dreams.
You're probably saying to yourselves, what does
this person know about Fernandina Beach and how the
school system is run? We are former residents of
Fernandina Beach and our children attended
Fernandina schools for 10 years. We are very familiar
with how this school system treats its students and fam-
ilies.
David Swan shouldn't be prevented from pursuing
the academic and athletic choices he and his family have
chosen. Put yourselves in his position and think about
how you would feel if this was happening to you. Don't
crush a student's dream out of pettiness. You can stop
this madness now by signing the necessary papers
and allowing David to pursue his dream atACD. Please
do what's right for David and take down the roadblock.

Effects of development
The effects of development can be seen all over
Florida. Some communities can handle the addition-
al growth while others seem to burst from the growth
rate and increased population. Taxes, traffic, crime
and home values all seem to rise dramatically. Everyone
suffers in an overdeveloped community from the addi-
tional burdens placed on the public.
Revenues have to be increased by the governing
bodies to maintain a certain standard for the commu-
nity. Schools, hospitals, roads and jail facilities must be
constructed at the expense of the taxpayer. For exam-
ple, some communities' property taxes have decreased
but the median home value has increased threefold in
eight years. This is almost the same as raising taxes
because the home's value has increased, therefore
increasing the property tax.
The major problem with growth in a small com-
munity is the infrastructure. Small communities cannot


handle the additional population that will migrate to the
area. They cannot supply enough jobs for the resi-
dents. Making traffic extremely heavy when these
workers go to and from work. Causing more traffic
lights and stop signs everywhere. Leaving the roads and
highways stagnated with cars and every other kind of
vehicle imaginable. Pollution is often visible in the
warmer months and in the colder months it can be
smelled everywhere.
Many communities now impose an impact fee on the
new homebuilder. Or in a better word, a tax, without
actually saying we're taxing you. Impact fee just sounds
so sophisticated as it rolls off the politicians' tongues.
Taxes must be raised for new police, firemen and trash
collectors. As well as new roads for the swelling pop-
ulation that will move into the area. In some areas of the
country home values have tripled in the past eight
years, giving the city and county municipalities addi-
tional revenue but stretching it to accommodate the
public. Taxes will have to be raised or home values
assessed, at a higher rate to raise additional revenues.
Some suggestions that have been made to alleviate
the problem are to place moratoriums on building in
these communities. But money talks and the govern-
ing bodies bend to the will of big development Often
the developers promise to set aside acreage for a com-
munity project This just means the property was not
fit to develop anyway, giving the developer "good press"
and a photo opportunity with the governing leaders.
Causing some people to say maybe they are doing this
for the good of all. When truly it's just a token offering
for destroying hundreds of acres of wetlands.
People wonder why bears, deer, raccoons and other
wild animals invade their backyards. They are only
feeding, mating and living where they have for years.
We are the intruders in their homes and living rooms.
There have been too many reports of animals attack-
ing humans in the past five years. This is a direct result
of us moving into their habitat at an alarming rate. I have
personally seen an alligator eat a dog when the dog got
too close to the alligator's lair, which was in the dog's
back yard.
Now development in moderation is not a bad thing.
But too much of anything will get tiresome very quick-
ly. Some communities have passed legislation limiting
Sthe number of homes that can be built in a certain
area.
All this does is make those homes more desirable,
therefore driving up their property values. When will
we understand that we cannot continue to destroy our
natural resources and maintain a healthy environ-
ment? We must find alternative methods of develop-
ment that will be conducive to man and animals sur-
vival.

Baptist Church: "I want to thank each one who
participated in the fifth Sunday Sing with a God-
given talent It is important to share these talents.
As Rick Warren says, 'You were made for a mis-
sion.' Your mission is a ministry of service.
Romans 6:13 (LB) says, 'Give yourselves com-
pletely to God every part of you to be tools to
be used for his good purpose.'
"November was set aside as a 'month of
prayer.' Part of the mission of the church is to
sharethe gospel through music ministry. Are you
in obedience with Romans 6:13? We need your
service to God. Come join us. Set aside Dec. 18 to
worship through the Cantata, 'Love
Transcending.' Remember, church music is you!
A big welcome awaits you! 85971 Harts Road!"

for Dec. 1 at the Holiday Inn on Commonwealth.
Dorman Mizell leads this group, and enjoys work-
ing with these "seniors." '
Their praise service and Thanksgiving dinner
were Nov. 22. They are currently looking for a
financial assistant Until the Lord sends them that
person, Brother Phil Moore is lending his
accounting expertise to that area. Brother Don
Goodpaster is our facilities manager with a hard-
working staff and a great office staff.
December is full of Christmas parties! These

cial. I thank the Lord for every birthday he has let
me enjoy. I'm looking forward to my "heavenly
home," and to the time when He calls me up
there. Oh, what a day that will belRomans 8:28.
What a nice surprise long-distance call from
longtime friends Anne (Goodbread) and Ronnie
Shaddix, three hours away in Alamo, Ga., on my
birthday. They sang "Happy Birthday" to me as I
said "hello." No, I couldn't guess who they were.
Our chat went on for over 30 minutes. Ronnie still
sings to group meetings in his church choir and
nursing homes, etc. They really were spreading
"sunshine to me" when our morning was so
cloudy and expecting rain. I managed to hold back
the tears. After four phone calls by noon, I put my
news column aside to take my daily siesta.
The Rev. Mike Reed, wife "Rhonda," and Mike
Branch and wife "Julie," all of First Baptist,
Fernandina Beach, attended the convention in
Ocala recently. All attending were shocked to
learn of the death of the Rev. Adrain Rogers. He
was a favorite and longtime friend of many and we
tuned in to hear him every chance we had. Those
that knew him was to love him.
"The Lord is My Shepherd" was the great ser-
mon topic of the Rev. Jeff Overton on Nov. 20 at.
First Baptist, a favorite of many! A new ensemble
composed of Suzanne Bass, Donna Crocker,
Deborah McCullough, Mick Smith, Bill Inman,
Ronnie Moore and Jack Bass with Mike Reed,
directing, was a great special "All of Me." Robert

Family Ramel and Sherry
-' Cuencas and family, will
share their experience on the
mission field of Indonesia.
Hilda Al Paulson Jr., associate'
Higginbotham pastor* students/activities of
Amelia Baptist Church, had
.'". this exciting news to report
ILDA'S "Nov. 19 was our annual Pig
HEARABOUTS Pickin'. This was an opportu-
nity for our church to reach
out and invite unchurched families to an event
that may not be quite as intimidating as a worship
service. The Pig Pickin' was a time of food. fun
and fellowship. There were carnival-style games,
pony rides as well as giant inflatable games. The
ladies were taking their favorite desserts."
Al also said: "We are excited to be taking three
students to Crossroads Ministry Summit in North
Carolina. Crossroads is the ministry that puts on
the summer camp we attend. This ministry pro-
vides an opportunity for students who feel called
to any area of ministry to come together to learn,
pray and seek God's will for their lives. Please
pray for Lacy Christ, Alisia Pajevic and Brittany
Helton as they continue to seek God's will for
their place in ministry.
"Pam. Neil and I will be traveling to new York
this month as we take a vision trip for our student
mission project this coming summer. Thanks so
ihuch to the generous'donor who provided us
with airline tickets!"
Mrs. Weezie (Louise Weaver), children's direc-
tor at Blackrock Baptist Church, always has a
busy time. She writes: "We have started this new
church year with a bang! We have been averaging
67 children for Awana on Friday nights! They
have memorized a total of 617 verses already this
year (seven weeks). What a blessing to see these
children eager to learn God's word. We still need
people to come out and be listeners for us. All you
have to do is listen to children say their verses.
"On Oct 16,1 Ihad the privilege to be in chil-
dren's church in Honduras. Our missionary to
Honduras, Dee Dee Johns, had children's church
on the back porch of their home. There were 56
children and they were sitting on concrete blocks
'didndiHid-a piece of particle board fo theirtable: -J
Each table had 8-10 children around it and they
shared one box of 16 crayons. The older children
helped the younger children and even got the
blocks to make a chair for them. I never heard one
of them complain that they didn't get to sit where
they wanted to or that they didn't get the color .
that they wanted. They were just happy to have
what they had. It made me stop and think how
truly blessed we are that we need to thank God
for all that He has given to them. I would like to
welcome our new youth/education/assbciate pas-
tor, Casey Taylor, and his family to our church."
The Chancel Choir and orchestra of Memorial
United Methodist Church will present a traditional
"Christmas Cantata," "Gloria In Excelsis Deo," at

On Nov. 8, Chaplain Roland Knight and wife,
Charlotte, of First Presbyterian Church hosted a
coffee at their spacious North Sixth Street home
to honor the Rev. Conrad Sharps. Invited were
pastors of the Ministerial Association to express
their love, appreciation and good wishes as this
beloved pastor is leaving First Presbyterian
Church to pastor a church in Birmingham, Ala.
It's hard saying goodbye to the Sharps family after
having them for 17 years!
Pastor Sharps' last sermon was Dec. 4 at the
First Presbyterian Church. God has truly blessed
this church in the 17 years plus of Conrad's minin-
istry. (Bill Wade)

FRIDAY. DECEMBER 9,2005/News-Leader


RELIGION


We are all children of God on a journey of freedom and faith


The oldest African-
American Church in
North America was
established in 1773 in
Savannah, Ga. The current sanctu-
ary of the First African Baptist
Church, just off Franklin Square
on Montgomery Street, was con-
structed by slaves for slaves.
Construction began in 1859 when
both male and female slaves
would come to the site following a
full day of forced labor to build
their church. In the winter when
the light of the day faded early,
they would build bonfires around
the sanctuary in order to illumi-
nate their work into the night
It's amazing to see the crafts-
manship of their work, some of
which includes breathtaking


carvings on
the pews and
diamond-





Conrad ship was not
Sharps exposed until
..ut wellinto the

PULPIT, long after
NOT S slavery had

wished in our land. You see, slave

masters would have never
allowed their slaves to identify
with their history particularly
that of their tribal identity from


the lands from which they came.
These slaves however, took it
upon themselves to carve on the
pews of the sanctuary the sym-
bols of every one of the African
cultural identities (people
groups) represented in the
Savannah area. This house of
God then, became for them not
only a place of worship but also of
cultural identity and pride, as the -
symbols of their identity
remained hidden and yet in plain
sight.
The diamond-shaped holes
also served a liberating purpose
as in various strategic sections of
the flooring they provided for
adequate ventilation for escaping
slaves on the Underground
Railroad to freedom.


Hidden in plain sight How
often we also miss the identifying,
liberating and redeeming actions
of God in our own lives. If only we
could train otir eyes, our hearts
and our minds to view life with a
theological eye.
The darkness of evil in the
world seeks to enslave, to
oppress and to take away the
humanity of peoples everywhere.
But God will have none of it. Our
true identity has been forever
carved upon the rough timbers of
the cross of Jesus Christ.
We are children of God, and
we are on a journey of freedom
and faith. Although the safe
places, the stops, the redeeming,
merciful and sanctifying actions
of God in our world today often


go unnoticed they remain in
plain sight for those with discern-
ing hearts. As we continue to face
biological, cultural and personal
tragedies that seem to enslave
and distract we need not lose
heart Paul wrote to the Church
in Corinth: "Therefore we do not
lose heart. Though outwardly we
are wasting away, yet inwardly we
are being renewed day by day. For
our light and monetary troubles
are achievingfor us an eternal
glory that far outweighs them all.
So we fix our eyes not on what is
seen but on what is unseen. For
what is seen is temporary, but
what is unseen is eternal."
(2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
This is.it! Our hope, (our
redemption,, our salvation) is


often unseen by our world yet it is
in plain sight. Are you struggling
today? Do you wonder about your
identity? Are you finding it hard
to remember your story? Look to
the cross your identity is to be
found there; and though unseen
and misunderstood by the world
it remains unchangeable and
eternal. When all the world is
against you; when you are hand-
ed your own cross: pray. Pray that
God will give you the ability to
see in your hand (in your own
fate) what the world cannot see:
salvation in Jesus Christ.
This column is from a selection
of favorites by the Rev. Conrad C.
Sharps that have appeared in the
News-Leader over the past few
years.

Garden snail can live 2 years


Q .The attached photo is of a
.large snail we found in our
yard here in Fernandina Beach.
A friend says it is probably a
Florida tree snail but I cannot
identify it from sites on the
Internet. I would like to know
exactly what it is and whether
we should destroy it or set it
free? Thanks. JB

A oThank you for the photo-
X.graph. You did a great job,
which made my search easier.
The snail is probably the Rosy
Wolfsnail, Euglandina rosea, or
Rosy predator snail, which is one
of the
largest
predatory
snails found
in
Northeast
Florida.
The shell is
large (up to
76 mm or
Sabout3
.. au i inches in
Becky height by
Jordi 27.5 mm or
.a... 1 1/4 inch
in diame-
GARDEN ter) and
TALK thick with
prominent
growth lines. Typically, the shell
color is brownish-pink. The dis-
tribution of this snail is through-
out most of the Southeastern
states and it is widespread in
Florida, including the Keys. Its
habitat is normally hardwood
forests, roadsides and urban gar-
dens (Hubricht 1985). Individual
snails live up to 24 months. The
female produces 25 to 35 eggs,
which are laid in a shallow pock-
et in the soil. These eggs hatch
after 30 to 40 days. The rosy
predator snail is not a problem
on plants but rather feeds on
other snails that feed on plants.
It is interesting that it tracks its
prey and mates by following
their slime trails. We don't con-
sider them a problem so I would
let it go. They have been used in
Hawaii in efforts to rid the
islands of another snail pest but
the experiment has not been
successful.

The rosy predator snail is not a problem on plants but
rather feeds on other snails that feed on plants.


.I keep seeing this plant in
.the garden centers but I
am not sure what type of envi-
ronment it prefers. Can you give
me some information on it? MM.
A The plant you gave me was
.from the genus
Plectranthus, which is being
sold all over this area. This plant
is from the mint family and has
very fragrant leaves. We would
classify as an annual for Nassau
as its cold hardiness is for zones
9b-11 remember Nassau
County is 8b-9a, so these plants
are just outside our zone.
Once the plants have been
established for a year or more
they can develop woody stems at
the base and can therefore
become more resistant to frost
damage. The flowers are pink,
purple or white and under prop-
er conditions bloom from spring
through fall, which means the
flowers are seldom damaged by
frost.
Plectranthus are easily culti-
vated and require little extra
attention or special treatment It
tolerates a wide variety of light
conditions but thrive in semi-
shade, which makes them ideal-
ly suited to grow under the
shade of trees. Plectranthus are
often grown for their attractive
foliage, flowers or both and vary
in their growth forms from
dense prostrate ground covers


to sub-shrubs and large shrubs.
"Q. I would like to know when
.to prune my Mexican
Petunia so it will produce more
flowers. EK
A Mexican Petunia, Ruellia
1. brittoniana, also called
Britton's wild petunia is classi-
fied as an invasive for Florida
according to the Center for
Aquatic and Invasive Plants
(http://plants. ifas.ufl.edu/rue-
bri.html). It is sold in nurseries
everywhere but it easily escapes
into wildlife areas and therefore
is not the best choice for a land-
scape plant. Like many perenni-
als, it will die back when cold
weather comes but will quickly
return in the spring. So to
answer your question, we would
not want you to prune it back to
encourage it to produce more
flowers and more seed. It might
be best to allow it to go dormant
during the winter to avoid over-
production of seeds.

home sc

We've been hearing a
lot about the loom-
ing real estate bub-
ble here in Florida,
but the fact remains that proper-
ty is still one of the best invest-
ments around especially in our
state.
Despite talk of a flattening
market, Florida is still consid-
ered one of the hottest real
estate regions in the country,
with its relative affordability and
desirable balance of current
value and growth potential.
Most residents in the market
for a new home will likely wait
until after the holidays to begin
looking in earnest. But prospec-
tive homeowners should, at the
very least, take the next several
weeks to locate a good real
estate attorney. The earlier in the
home-buying process your attor-
ney becomes involved, the more
value he or she can add to the
final deal.
A good real estate attorney
protects clients from potential
problems that can range from
the merely annoying to the very
costly work. Here's how:
Review all written commu-
nications and contracts. Your real
estate attorney reviews every-
thing that requires your signa-
ture, including binder agree-
ments and sales contracts drawn
up by the seller's attorney. Many
real estate agents today use stan-
dard contracts, and though much
of the language is fairly straight-
forward, ifs in the buyer's best
interest to have an attorney
explain the terms of the contract
before it is signed. Your attor-
ney's primary concern is that
these contracts contain provi-
sions and contingencies that ben-
efit and protect you, and will
negotiate any changes to that
end. He is also on the lookout for
language that favors the seller or
builder, and will eliminate vague
or unenforceable terms. Your
attorney can also draft an agree-
ment requiring money to be put
aside in case the parties don't
live up to their agreements, pro-
tecting both the buyer and the
seller.
*, Make changes to generic
c-. construction contracts. One of
the most common consumer
complaints pertains to new home
construction and home-improve-


y can protect


dllers and buyers


ment work.
If you are
having a
home built
C or are buy-
ing a brand-
new home
from a
builder/con-
tractor, you
have a
Charles unique set of
Kovaleski legal issues.
Construction
contracts
REAL can vary in
ESTATE complexity,
but they're
written by builders' attorneys
and are always written to protect
the builder's interests. But buy-
ers can request amendments to
their contract. A typical builder's
contract says the home will be
built "substantially" according to
the model's plans. But changes
can be made, for example, to the
home's layout or the type of
materials used and should be
included in the contract. Your
attorney will also include lan-
guage that spells out conse-.
quences for builders who do not
fix problems within a certain
time frame, usually 30 days from
the initial walk-through.
Obtain a title search. A thor-
ough search of the property's
title must be completed on all
real estate transactions to uncov-
er any defects that may preclude
the buyer from a marketable
title. Issues can include liens or
other outstanding judgments
against the property, such as
back taxes, lost or forged deeds,
claims of undisclosed heirs or
simple clerical errors. Your attor-
ney will evaluate the status of the
title and pursue appropriate legal
remedies to clear any title
defects. He'll also advise you on
what your title insurance policy
does and does not protect
against, emphasizing marketabil-
ity of the title when you sell.
Many people confuse title insur-
ance with a home warranty, but
the two are unrelated. If the title
company misses a lien, the insur-
ance is there to cover it. Your
attorney will also interpreL and
c-iun-el y.-iu ab:iur all-lIgal docu. -
ments related to the title and
transaction, including deeds,
mortgages and closing state-


ments.
Prepare for closing. Once
there is a mortgage commit-
ment, your attorney will set a
closing date with the seller's
attorney. Prior to that date, he
will prepare or review the closing
statement, and discuss with you
any contingencies that might
affect your interests. Most real
estate attorneys also encourage
their clients to do a final inspec-
tion of the house to make sure it
is in the same condition as when
the sales contract was signed.
Your attorney will likely review
with you what to expect during
the closing, tell you which certi-
fied checks to bring to cover
closing costs and prepare a bill of
sale to cover any personal prop-
erty that you and the buyer
agree shall remain in the home.
Real estate attorneys are key
players to any real estate transac-
tion, and can be of assistance
long after the deal closes. Refer
to your attorney for questions
about property taxes, the affect
of a death or divorce on home-
ownership or specific property
disputes.
One of the best ways to find a
good real estate lawyer is word
of mouth: Ask friends and col-
leagues whether they were satis-
fled with the lawyer who handled
their closing. Real estate agents
or mortgage brokers can also
make excellent recommenda-
tions. Be sure to ask whether the
lawyer specializes in real estate;
you don't want a lawyer whose
primary work is litigation and
who does only a few closings a
year.

FRIDAY. DECEMBER 9.2005 NEWS News-Leader


Blue an excellent January color


Janet Loveless is one danger-
ous woman to talk to. I
found that out when I went
to the library the other day
to ask her a couple of ques-
tions; I got my answers, but not
before she'd talked me into volun-
teering for a couple of her latest
projects. Fortunately, they do not
involve making tiny sandwiches or
devising a major PR campaign like
the House of Possibilities for the
Barnabas Center.
One Book, One Community is
just one of the programs Janet's
planning that brings a sparkle to
her eye. 1B1C, as it's affection-
ately called, came to Nassau
County in 2002. Its purpose is to
get all sorts of people with all
sorts of perceptions and perspec-
tives to read the same book at
the same time, and then sit down
and talk about it. Not only does
this read-fest unite a community
in a common endeavor, it pro-
motes a cross pollination of ideas
among the .divergent components
of our community. Neat idea,
huh?
We have both the Amelia
Book Island Festival and the
Friends of the Library to thank
for this wonderful excuse to read,
reflect and then talk. As you
know, the festival attracts authors
from all over the country who
gather here every October to talk
to us about the craft of writing
and the secret of getting that writ-
ing published. It seems only natu-
ral that the festival would pro-
mote a community read.
The, Nassau County Library


system and
Friends of
A take a more
S .q .e active role;
Janet
S Loveless
h spends hours
I'm '. every year to
get this proj-
Cara Curtin ect off the
..... ground,
while Friends
o provides the
SIDEBAR nuts and
bolts organi-
zational structure to make it all
happen.
I'm embarrassed to admit that
I didn't know as much about the
Friends of the Library as I should
have until I became involved in
1B1C. Donna Paz Kaufman, the
chair of Friends, gave me a handy
brochure that explained the
group's mission: to act as ambas-
sadors who promote the Nassau
County Library system and its
programs throughout our county.
Again, 1B1C seems to be perfect
project for this organization.
The first 1B1C book Nassau
County read was China Run, by
David Ball. That was in 2002; the
next year we read The Giver, by
Lois Lowry. Last year, everyone
read Carolyn Hart's Letter from
Home. Hart had been the fea-
tured author at the book festival,
so I suppose it was only natural
that we chose her book for the
community read.
This year, we have chosen Girl
in Hyacinth Blue, by Susan


We can gather around the fire with a good book.
GIRL NHYACINT BLUE


Vreeland,'who was this year's fea-
tured writer at the festival. (You
can pick up Hyacinth at one of
our local book stores, but if you
buy it at the library, the Friends
of the Library receives a portion
of the proceeds.) The Vermeer
painting on the cover presents an
immediate and enigmatic tempta-
tion; if the cover is that intriguing,
I can only imagine what the
inside holds!
Thanks to Janet's silver
tongue, I signed up to not only
find out what is inside the book,
but to facilitate a discussion
group or two about what the rest
of us discover there. I spoke to
Robert at Sliders about hosting
my discussion groups, and he got
very excited about the whole
thing. Since we won't meet until
January, thatwill give us ample
time to.read the book and for
Robert to get the Sliders fireplace
up and burning. It's almost
enough incentive for me to wish
for a cold January night so we
can gather around the fire with a
good book, good refreshments
and a most excellent conversation
about a girl who wore a blue
dress centuries ago.
I don't know who all of the
other facilitators are, but I do
'know that most of the Fernandina


Beach contingent is composed of
Amelia Hart, who will meet her
group at the Fernandina Beach
branch of the library. Christopher
Twiggs will be at Caf6 Karibo, but
I don't yet know where Malcolm
Noden will gather his readers.
You can call one of the library
branches or e-mail Chris Twiggs
- he's the chairman of 1B1C this
year at ctwiggs@fccj.edu for
more information.
All of the information you will
need will be at your branch
library:
I almost forgot to mention
that the Hallmark film based on
the book, titled Brush with Fate,
is scheduled for screening on
Feb. 23 at the Kosmic KafY on
Second Street.
One Book, One Community
promises to be an excellent proj-
ect for our normally quiet
January. I don't know about you,
but my chatterbox is a little
empty at the end of the holidays,
and my brain and body are a little
numb from all of the scurrying
around the past few weeks. A
quiet read and a good discussion
about it seem like a perfect way
to spend a winter's night. Happy
reading!

engineers Craig Reinolds and James Graf, Lt. Rob Patton and

from the home's chimney.


Bluebird rescued


Nassau County Fire-Rescue
headquarters received a telephone
call about 9 a.m. Nov. 28 from
Mary Lee of Yulee, who expressed
concern about how to get a bird
out of her chimney.
Fire-rescue engineer Craig
Reinolds and engineer James Graf
ascended to the roof to observe
the circumstances. They deter-
mined the spark arrestor and
chimney stack needed to be
removed to accommodate any
possible release of the trapped
wildlife.
Lt. Rob Patton and firefighter
Tracy Dunman-Berger opened the


damper to provide an alternative
exit for the bird. The trapped birpi
came down through the chimney
and Dunman-Berger reached into
the fireplace and scooped it up
into her gloved hands.
The bluebird was set free out-
side the home in some shrubs and
quickly flew to relief in a nearby
tree.
"This was the first time I was
part of a group effort in getting a
bird out of a chimney," said
Dunman-Berger. "However, this
was the second bird rescue during
my three-year career with Nassau
County Fire Rescue."

students in CPR and first aid as part of
the class curriculum. The class is a gradu-
ation requirement, thus providing an
opportunity for every student to complete
the training.
Faculty completing the two-day course
included Leslie Slaughter, Pat Pikula,
Marsha Walker and Jude Swearinger.
Gary Crosby of First Coast CPR provided
the instruction. The Fernandina Beach
Fire Department trained nearly 500 FBHS

Teen Court

group visits

Tallahavsee

On Nov. 1, a group of seven
Nassau County Teen Court par-
ticipants attended a regular ses-
sion of the Florida Supreme
Court.
After the
court session,
the group
attended a
luncheon where
Chief Justice
Pariente and l
Secretary of the
Department of Griffin
Juvenile Justice,
Anthony J.
Schembri, addressed the group.
Making the day even more
exciting, a visit to the Florida
House of Representatives result-
ed in participation by some of the
students who assisted in present-
ing arguments before the House
on different legislative items up
for consideration.
The next Teen Court sessions
are scheduled Jan. 10 and 24 at
the Nassau County Judicial
Complex, 76347 Veterans Way in
Yulee. Attorneys, clerks and
defendants meet at 5:30 p.m. and
Teen Court begins promptly at 6
p.m.
"With the holiday season
upon us, I would like to say how
much your gift of time as a volun-
teer means to our program.
Without our youth volunteers
and the support of your parents,
our mission could not succeed.
Thank you all for having the
heart and the desire to make
your community a better place.
Thank you for thinking of one
another because this program is
about youth helping themselves
and their peers," said Teen Court
Coordinator Charles Griffin in a
press release.
"Have a wonderful holiday
season, be safe and share the gift
of who you are with those you

SPORTS MEDICINE
GREGORY SMITH, M.D.


A season

like no other

for coach
Coach Rich
McWhorter knew
that this would be a
season like no other
for his Charlton County
Indians. They were the 2004
Georgia state 2A champions.
Defending the title would be
a tall order, and expectations
would be high.
Coach Mac, as he is
known to his players, was in
his 16th year as head coach
and in addition to 2004, he
had won the state title in 1999
and finished runner-up in
1990 and 2003. The Indians
had also made the playoffs
every year since 1990. But in
sports, last season is last sea-
son and people judge you on
what you are doing now.
On a Monday in mid-
August, four days from open-
ing night, Coach Mac was
getting in his daily walk and
began to have some chest
pain and pressure after walk-
ing only a quarter of a mile.
"I just thought it had
something to do with my
recently having eaten lunch,"
Coach told me.
As soon as he stopped, the
pain went away, so he really
thought nothing more of it
The next day Coach Mac
would skip lunch this time
before his walk. But again at
the quarter-mile mark, the
pain in his chest returned.
When he stopped and rested,
it would quickly go away. His
first thought was to take the
advice he might give a tired
player.
"I told myself that I had to
suck it up," he said, but this
pain he just could not ignore.
He mentioned it to his wife
that night, who promptly
called their primary care
physician, -Dr. Tom Whitesell: -
To White story sounded too much like '
"exercise-induced angina"
and he asked him to come
into the office the next morn-
ing.
Angina is the medical term
for chest pain or discomfort
due to coronary artery dis-
ease and is a symptom of a
heart condition called
myocardial ischemia, or lack
of blood flow (and thus lack
of oxygen) to the heart mus-
cle. This often presents itself
during exercise, exertion or
stress.
Angina is a sign that some-
one is at increased risk for
heart attack, cardiac arrest or
sudden cardiac death.
Just two days from game
day, Coach went to
Whitesell's office for an EKG.
"My resting EKG and
blood pressure were normal,"
Coach Mac said, "but due to
the history of this chest pain,
as well as my family history
of heart disease, he sched-
uled me for a stress test and
nuclear study."
The test would be done on
Friday, game day.
. "I told Dr. Whitesell that I
really didn't have time for that
on game day," he said. But he
was assured that the testing
would be done earlier in the
morning, so he agreed.
Coach Mac went to
Charlton County Hospital
Friday morning, dressed
completely in his game attire.
He underwent a treadmill
stress test and nuclear study,
and the news was not good.
"Everyone was real upbeat
at first, talking about the
game," he said. Then as they
reviewed the results, "every-
one got real quiet" He was
told that there was a signifi-
cant blockage in his heart,
and was immediately given an
aspirin and a "beta-blocker."
He was then referred immedi-
ately to a cardiologist for fur-
ther evaluation.
"My cardiologist, Dr.
Patel, reviewed my options
for treatment and told me that
even open-heart surgery was
a possibility," Coach Mac
said.
A cardiac angiogram or
dye study would next be
done, and this showed a near
complete blockage of the
major vessel serving the front
wall of the heart.


"He called it the widow-
maker, and said that I was
very susceptible to a heart

Lady Pirates on three-game win streak


Hudson records

pair of hat tricks
The Lady Pirates are on a roll.
The Fernandina Beach High
School girls soccer team is cur-
rently on a three-game winning
streak. The Pirates traveled to Jack-
son on Monday for a district game
and to Ed White on Wednesday.
In a mercy rule-shortened
game, the Pirates soundly defeated
Jackson 8-0 on Wednesday, bring-
ing their district record to 3-2. It
was all Pirates as they scored early
and often. Coral Norheim was the
center of the attack with three
assists in the game. Whitney
Hudson and Slayton Haney added
two assists apiece with Laura
Mueller having an additional assist
Hudson led the scoring with a
hat-trick. Single goals were scored
by Amanda Vrancic, Haney, Vania
Castro, Emily de Maille and
Mueller. Jessica Fletcher record-
ed the shutout in goal for the
Pirates.

win against Jackson. Slayton Haney, left, anchors the defense.


On Wednesday, the Pirates trav-
eled to a soggy, muddy Ed White
stadium. Whitney Hudson scored
early in the game from a great pass
from Vrancic. The Pirates held a


slim 1-0 margin at the half.
"The field conditions were not
very good, and got worse as the
game went on," FBHS Coach Greg
Hudson said.


PIRATES GROUND EAGLES


The Fernandina Beach High School
girls basketball team hosted Paxon
Tuesday. The Lady Pirates won 45-34,
their fourth win in a row and improve
to 4-2 on the season. Senior Laci
Roberts led the way, scoring nine of
her 14 points in the first quarter and
sinking six free-throws. India
Johnson, right top, a sophomore, was
in double figures with 12 points. Caty
Sinnott, above, was 2-for-2 from the
foul line and chipped in eight points
altogether. Top, Cassie Justyn shoots
before being sidelined with an injury.
Right, sophomore Haley Tan dodges a
pair of Lady Eagles. "I thought we
played fairly well against Paxon,"
FBHS Coach Brian Shuster said. "We
still have a tendency to start slow
which we have to work on... We have
to fight the mental lapses that allow
teams to stay in games but the bottom
line is we are winning..." The Lady
Pirates traveled to Raines Thursday
for a district game. They take on
Stanton Wednesday and play at
Orange Park Dec. 16 before hosting
the Amelia Island Holiday Invitational
Dec. 19-20. West Nassau and
Providence will play at 6 p.m. and
Fernandina Beach and Hilliard play at
7:30 p.m. on the first night.

Whitney Hudson notched two
more goals in the second half to ice
the victory for the Pirates.
"Our midfield and strikers are
really starting to play team soc-
cer," Coach Hudson said.
Dresden Roach and Fletcher
had the assists on the final two
goals. That is two hat-trick games
in a row for Whitney Hudson.
"We give each other credit for
our goals. We are more proud of
assists than goals," said senior cap-
tain Whitney Hudson.
Norheim and Whitney Hudson
teamed in the goal to record the
shutout. Haney, de Maille and
Ginny Vos had excellent defensive
games for the Pirates.
"Haney is the key to our de-
fense, she continues to have a great
season. I was especially pleased
with the effort given by freshman
Ginny Vos. She is really picking
her game up," Coach Hudson said.
The Pirates host Bishop Snyder
tonight, Paxon on Monday, Forrest
on Wednesday and close the week
hosting Stanton on Thursday. All
games are at 6 p.m.

WATER fishermen
can access
the Nassau River while launching
their boat at Charlie's Fish Camp,
which is located on US 17 at the
Nassau River. Fishermen will
have the choice of running east
on the river and fishing for pri-
marily saltwater species or run-
ning west and fishing for a com-
bination of fresh and saltwater
game fish.
Some of the best fishing this
weekend on the Nassau River
should come during the falling
tide, which will occur at the
mouth at 10:03 a.m. Saturday.
However, the tides can be com-
pletely opposite as you run fur-
ther up river and, by the time you
reach Charlie's Fish Camp, there
is a two- to three-hour lag in the
tides. Further up stream in the
freshwaters of Boggy Creek, a
high tide at the mouth of Nassau
River could mean a low tide in
the headwaters of Boggy Creek.
Boggy Creek is a head water
feeder of the Nassau River.
With recent cold fronts pass-
ing through along with windy
weather, many species of game
fish will be moving into the
creeks to feed. This weekend be
sure to fish up in the feeder
creeks of the Nassau River and
you will be rewarded with a vari-
ety of fishing action!
At the mouth of the Nassau
River, Sawpit and Christmas
creeks are harboring sea trout,
