Investigators from the
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, above,
enter the home Thursday
of shooting victim Cheryl
Stillwell on Midway Road
on Amelia Island.
Nassau County Sheriff's
Deputy Ryan Vantassell,
right, supervises the
entrance to the crime
scene. A large area
around Stillwell's home,
including several hun-
dred yards of Midway
Road and a nearby trailer
park, remained cordoned
off by yellow police
crime-scene tape
Thursday afternoon.


Cheryl Ann Stillwell offered a
discount to police officers to live in
a nearby house she rented
because, she said, there were ille-
gal drugs in her island neighbor-
hood.
But she was shot and killed
Thursday morning by a Nassau
County Sheriff's deputy in the
process of executing a search war-
rant for drugs at her 2658 Midway
Road home.
Stillwell, 41, a 1983 graduate of
Fernandina Beach High School,
died at Shands Jacksonville, where
she was taken by emergency heli-
copter.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement is
investigating the incident at his
request.
Seagraves said Detective Dallas
Palecek "encountered gunfire" at
the residence and returned fire
while the search warrant was being
executed about 5:15 a.m.
Seagraves said Stillwell was the
only person inside the residence
when the incident occurred.
According to a press release
issued by the sheriff, "the subject
brandished and fired a gun at offi-
cers. In response to the shots being
fired (Palecek) returned fire at
(the) subject"
Stillwell had been arrested in
2003, though not prosecuted, after
she allegedly pointed a gun at a
satellite TV installer. A neighbor
described her Thursday as an

extremely private person, border-'
ing on "paranoid." (Story, 3A)
At a press conference Thursday
afternoon, Seagraves declined to
comment on whether any illegal
drugs were found inside Stillwell'sl
home that morning. He also.
declined to say how many officers
were on the scene at the time of the
shooting; he said he did not know
how many shots were fired, and
he would not comment on where
Stillwell was shot.
According to Seagraves, a con-
fideritial informant purchased
Oxycontin, a prescription painkiller,
from Stillwell at her home.
Seagraves said officers, includ-
ing Palecek, entered the home by:
force after knocking on the door^
and announcing they had come to.
serve a search warrant.
"The officers encountered a
female subject inside the house,"
Seagraves said, adding that she
fired a handgun and Palecek
returned fire.
Palecek has been placed on paid
administrative leave until "this has-
been cleared up," Seagraves said"

What is that smell?
That's the question Rose Koch
has been asking since moving into
her Blackrock Hammock homy
several months ago. 'r,.
Some mornings when she
walks outside or takes her dog for
a walk, she said, "It makes you
want to throw up."
On those days, the same ques-
tion is asked by residents of
Hampton Lakes and Flora Parke,
visitors to the new Home Depot,
Winn-Dixie, or anyone traveling
with their window down on A1A
east of Chester Road.
The answer is "timber sludge."
A 34-acre sludge site owned by
Rayonier is located about 200 yards
south of A1A near the Chester
Road intersection.
The site has been in existence
for 30 years, but Rayonier


spokesperson Mike Bell confirmed
Tuesday the odors have been far
worse recently than in past years.
He also confirmed Rayonier is
in the process of closing the facili-
ty, but it may take one to two years.
In the meantime, he said, the
company is working with the
Department of Environmental
Protection to spread charcoal or
other materials over the site to help
weaken the odors.
He stressed that the smell does
not pose any health risks.
Bell said Rayonier has used the
site to dump "sludge" left over from
its timber processing facility on
Gum Street in Fernandina Beach.
The sludge consists of wood
fibers, which it then deposits at the
site. Spreader trucks then collect
the sludge to use as a "soil amend-
ment" or organic fertilizer to add
nutrients to the soil.
As the material decomposes, it
releases gas that can get into the air

Breakfast Inns.


and cause a foul odor. Normally
these gases remain trapped by a
soil covering or by new sludge.
However, Bell said, one section
of the site has been exposed and
the gas from old, decomposing
sludge has been allowed to escape.
On certain days, Bell said, this
has been cause for complaints from
the North Hampton and Flora
Parke communities.
Efforts to cover the site have
been hampered by excessive rain
this year, he said.
"Because the area has so much
rain, it hasn't dried out as much as
it should have," he said. "So we
can't get equipment up there to get
the new material on top."
Bell said this is the first time
the odor has caused complaints in
the four years he's worked with
Rayonier, but he acknowledged it's
been quite a nuisance for nearby

City clerk wont be charged


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Assistant State Attorney
Granville "Doc" Burgess will not
file criminal charges against sus-
pended City Clerk Cassandra
Mitchell.
But in a memorandum, Burgess
said his investigation found "trou-
bling" points related to Mitchell's
actions following her inadvertent
transmission of every city employ-
ees' Social Security number to a
private citizen while filling a public
records request on Nov. 1.
Burgess conducted his investi-
gation at the Fernandina Beach
Commission's request after it sus-
pended Mitchell for 30 days with
pay Nov. 22.
The Social Security numbers
were included in an e-mail sent to
former city commissioner Marcia
Fotopoulos, who sought city
employee salary information.

In a memo to Interim City
Manager Jerry Sinclair, Interim
Police Chief James Thompson said
Fotopoulos told him "she did not
print the e-mail, nor forward it to
anyone... She did not even know
the Social Security numbers were
even in the document." Fotopoulos
also told him she deleted the e-
mail from her computer.
In his Dec. 16 memorandum,
Burgess calls on the Fernandina
Beach Commission to handle the
matter.
"I decline to file criminal
charges, and instead refer this mat-
ter to the city commission for what-
ever discipline they deem appro-
priate," Burgess wrote.
"A decision on filing a civil
infraction is withheld pending the
commission action, and further
investigation," Burgess said.
He conducted his investigation
after Commissioner Bill Leeper
said answers were needed.


"Was there a
violation of law?
And if so, we
need to know to
what extent,"
Leeper said then.
"I think we need
to refer this to the
State Attorney's
Mitchell Office to investi-
gate if there
was a violation of
law, what the intent was (so) we
would know more on how to pro-
ceed."
The Attorney General's Office
has "never known of an employee
to be prosecuted for mistakenly
transmitting exempt information,"
Burgess said.
"Most public records criminal
violations consist of (knowing and
willful) acts, which this is not," he
wrote.

Get doctor's OK before splitting pills

ALICE WALSII
News Leader
Many pills cost the same,
regardless of the dosage. When I
first realized this, several years
ago, I asked my doctor if he
would double the dosage of one
high-priced prescription drug I
must take, so that I could cut the
pills in half and thus save by
stretching the usual 30 pills to a
two-month supply. He said, "Fine.
That's a good idea." I have been
doing that ever since, and now,
more people are using this
method of cost cutting.
This is a big savings for those
of us who pay in full for their pre-
scription medications, but even
some health insurers, such as
United Health Group, are offer-
ing patients a chance to lower
their co-payments by buying
each two-months' supply in this


~YI~~
-q


manner.
The phar-
maceutical
industry is
not happy
about this
trend, and
says it is not


safe that patients may not get
the exact dose they need if a pill
is cut in half. And you can bet
that somewhere down the road
they will start pricing by the
dosage in each pill, rather than
the number. But while pricing is
done as it is now, we may as well
save while we can.
Not all pills, such as extend-
ed-release tablets, the migraine
drug Matrix and several others
will work if they are cut in half.
And, of course, capsules contain-
ing powder or gel cannot be split.
For those that do lend them-
selves to division, the American


Journal of Cardiology examined
voluntary pill-splitting of choles-
terol drugs this past June and
found no differences in patient
compliance, side effects or
improvement between those who
split pills and those who didn't.
So this debunks the safety con-
cerns of this type of medication.
In many pharmaceutical
drugs taken long-term, on a reg-
ular basis, a small variation in
dosage from day to day doesn't
matter.
Your doctor will know if pill
splitting is feasible with a certain
medication, and most physicians
are willing to double the dosage
so that you can do this. Trust his
or her judgment.
Pill splitting is easiest with
those that are flat, round and
scored with a line down the mid-
dle. Odd-shaped pills require
extra care, but there are special-


ty pill-splitters available. The lit-
tle devices that split pills are
available at any pharmacy. Costs
start at about $3, and the device
will last for years. Do remember
that this method will work only if
a pill comes in a size that is dou-
ble your needed dose.
Prices of pharmaceutical
drugs change rapidly, and those
that are promoted in media
advertising are usually the most
expensive of their type.
Physicians are not always aware
of the prices of individual drugs,
and if you find that one your doc-
tor has prescribed for you is
beyond your means, don't do
without it; Discuss it with your
doctor, and he or she can usually
prescribe one that is just as effec-
tive but costs less.

Residents of Midway Road said
they woke up to the sound of gun-
shots and sirens Thursday morn-
ing, in a chaotic scene that resulted
in a fatal shooting of one of their
neighbors.
"I heard this 'boom, boom,

sounded like hammers. Then there

'boom, boom, boom.' After that all
hell broke loose, there were sirens

Cheryl Ann Stillwell, 41, was
shot by a sheriff's detective about
5:15 a.m. Thursday while officers
attempted to serve a search war-
rant at her 2658 Midway Road
home.
Stillwell allegedly fired at


Stillwell from

yearbook


Detective Dallas
Palecek, who
then returned fire
and fatally shot
her.
Across the
street, Stillwell's
neighbor and
longtime friend
said she woke up
when a man
slammed on her
door and shout-
ed, "Cheryl shot


a cop!"
No officers were injured in the
incident, according to the sheriff's
department.
Another neighbor said she knew
Stillwell most of her life and had
grown up near Stillwell's childhood
home, next door to where the shoot-
ing occurred.


She described Stillwell as an
extremely private person, almost to
the point of being "paranoid."
Stillwell installed surveillance
cameras around her home because
of concerns about her safety and
lived alone with her doberman pin-
scher, she said.
The woman said Stillwell was
diagnosed with a bipolar disorder
several years ago and rarely had
visitors, but was "very, very smart,"
with a lot of knowledge about com-
puters,
She'd been trained in technolo-
gy during several years of military
service, the woman said.
She said Stillwell's home was
certainly not "a crack house."
"She wasn't that kind of person
at all," she said. "Believe me, I am
very nosey and I would have sus-
pected something."

MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader

Adam Lewis is home from Iraq
for Christmas, and his parents
'couldn't be more pleased except
it took a wound that earned him his
second Purple Heart to get him
'home for the holidays.
` Lewis, son of Robert A. and
Catherine Lewis of Yulee, arrived
home Wednesday night from Naval
Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.,
where President George W. Bush
and First Lady Laura Bush met
him earlier in the day.
Lewis was shot by a sniper
while on foot patrol in Karma, Iraq.
,The shot pierced his helmet and
fractured his skull, and he is lucky
to be alive, his father said
Thursday.

But Mitchell's actions following
the transmission "are inexcusable,"
Burgess said.
"The troubling point is the num-

made," he wrote.

ment for four years, Seagraves said,
and in that time he has not been
involved in any other shooting inci-
dents and has not received any dis-
ciplinary action.
The search warrant was exe-
cuted as part of an early morning
drug bust planned by the sheriff's
Drug Enforcement and Eradication
Task Force.
Seagraves said three search
warrants were executed in the area
on the island east of AlA and south
of Sadler Road. Two suspects -
Steven Reece, 48, 2813 Amelia
Road, and Anthony Washington,
42, 732 Old Amelia Road were
arrested. Seagraves would not com-
ment on whether officers had
served all the search warrants
planned. He said the other two
search warrants were served, and
the arrests made, without incident.
Stillwell had been arrested pre-
viously, on Aug. 31, 2003, for aggra-
vated assault. Assistant State
Attorney "Doc" Burgess said the
charge was not prosecuted because
of conflicting evidence.
When arrested, Stillwell was liv-
ing at 2646 Midway Road, her child-
hood home.
According to the police report,
Stillwell was accused of pointing a
9mm handgun at a satellite TV
installer after ordering him off her
property. The installer had refused
to take his shoes off before coming
inside her home, the report stat-
ed. Stillwell claimed that he had
pulled a gun on her.
That report identified her as a

employment could not be con-

The competition is for students
to learn the basic pedestrian, bicy-
cle, alcohol, driving or safety
restraint concepts by creatively
illustrating the correct behavior in
their posters, with the ultimate goal
being to reduce traffic and pedes-
trian crashes, which is the number
one cause of death of children from
2 to 14 years of age, said Atran.

City moves closer to hiring


airport manager, police chief


GLENDA S.JENKINS
News-Leader
Interim City Manager Jerry
Sinclair has moved toward filling
two major city jobs.
The commission voted unani-
mously Tuesday to transfer funds
from the airport contingency fund
to the salary account for a new air-
port manager position. The full-
time airport manager will earn
$35,500.
Sinclair also has begun the
selection process for police chief
with an internal job posting and a
Florida Police Chiefs Association
advertisement.
The city's charter gives the city
manger discretion to hire both the
police chief and the airport man-
ager.
Sinclair has not disclosed the
name of the intended airport man-
ager, but identified him as a former
operations and 'support employ-
ee, retired from the airline indus-


try, with experience in properly
management. Former city man-
ager Bob Mearns and his staff
conducted the initial recruitment
and interviews, Sinclair said.
"We think it's a cost-effective
measure for the city," Sinclair said.
"We can expand on the revenue
sources (at the airport). We also
believe we can save mohey that
we're now paying out to have
consultants" design a master plan
for security and business opera-
tions.
"I think it's a good business
move," Vice Mayor Beano Roberts
said. "We need to have a real busi-
ness approach to the airport for
the city's sake. And I think this is
a good move on our part."
"I'd like to see further involve-
ment" in selecting the police chief,
Commissioner John Crow said,
suggesting a selection committee
of citizens and members of the
police department.
'That's a city manager appoint-


ment as per our illustrious city
charter," Commissioner Joe
Gerrity said he told a concerned
citizen."That's nlt ..ni-,Ihinig h. 1
we can get involved in. That is
strictly a city manager employee
and a city manager decision. While
I may agree in principle with you,"
Gerrity told Crow, "we are bound
by the charter."'
"Most likely" a short list of
candidates for police chief will
be compiled for the new city
manager to select from, Sinclair
said.
"I think it would be wise to
have one in before he gets here,"
Crow said.
City Attorney Debra Braga and
human resources director Robin
Marley will help with the police
chief search.
"I don't know if we need fur-
ther involvement than that,"
Sinclair said. "It's not going to be
my sole decision."

Oceanfront houses endangered
by beach erosion may see relief
soon via an emergency $1 million
grant.
The grant would offload tons
of sand on a one-mile stretch of
beach south of Jasmine Street
toward Sadler Road an area
where the water level at high tide
is now just a few feet from many
homes.
"It's a stopgap measure but it
needs immediate attention," said
local attorney Buddy Jacobs, lob-
bying on behalf of the city. "We're
about to lose all the houses in that
area."
South Fletcher Avenue resident
Melvin Usery said Wednesday the
work is desperately needed in front
of his home and his neighbors',
where water completely covers the
beaches at high tide.
The erosion has been a prob-
lem for years, he said, but was
recently made worse by tropical
storms and the "side-swipe" effects
of various hurricanes.
The state has agreed to pro-
vide $500,000 of the grant if
matched by Nassau County,

Fernandina Beach and the Florida
Department of Transportation.
The Nassau County
Commission approved a $200,000
expenditure toward the project at
a meeting earlier Wednesday.
The city is expected to consid-
er a similar expenditure at a special
meeting.
The Florida Department of
Transportation, which maintains
that section ofA1A/South Fletcher
Avenue, is considering appropri-
ating the additional $100,000,
Jacobs said.
The grant amounts to an emer-
gency appropriation of state and
federal money already earmarked
for beach renourishment on
Amelia Island.


The work could begin within a
matter of weeks, once permits are
obtained and the project is bid,
Jacobs said.

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners decided by consensus
Tuesday to wait until after a new
city manager has been hired to
form a charter review committee.
Commissioners said forming
the committee prior to hiring the
city manager could send candidates
the message that the commission
has plans to replace the city man-
ager form of government.
"It might be prudent to wait until
after we hire a city manager,"
Commissioner John Crow said.
"And not to put the idea in some
candidate's mind that we might be
jerking the rug out from under him
... I don't want to scare anybody
off." Also, a city manager's "more
in-depth knowledge of govern-
ment" would benefit a review com-
mittee, he said.
Commissioner Joe Gerrity, who
requested the review committee,
said the delay means he will with-
draw his support from an ordinance
amending the charter to give the
commission greater flexibility to
negotiate the city manager's com-
pensation and length of contract.
Commissioners voted unani-
mously Tuesday to tentatively
approve the ordinance. The com-
mission will take a final vote on Jan.
10.
Examining the charter would
"lend a lot of credibility" to the
amendment, proposed for an April
ballot referendum, Gerrity said.
"As much input as we can gets
what I'm after," he said. Among

other things, the city should con-
sider if a different organizational
structure for the city clerk, the
city attorney and their employees
would work more effectively, he
said.
Currently the city clerk and the
city attorney report to the com-
mission. Their employees work for
the city manager.
A charter review "doesn't mean
we have to change anything,"
Commissioner Bill Leeper said.
"We need to have it from time to
time as we progress as a city."
Reviewing the charter "is fine."
But possibly replacing the city man-
ager-style of government, "I don't
think we could make a bigger mis-
take than that," Mayor Ken Walker
said, adding that the city needs to
make election reform, including
spending limits, a priority.
"Most cities are going to a city
manager style of government. .
and supposedly taking the politics
out of the day-to-day operations," he
said.
The city manager form of gov-
ernment works as well as those
who implement it, said Vice Mayor

Beano Roberts.
"I don't think we need to create
some committee that's going to
start reinventing the wheel," he
said. "Imperfect as it is, it's a reflec-
tion upon us."
"Commissioner Roberts is
right," Leeper said. 'With the right
people in place, we need to let them
do their job."
"There's nothing the five of us
can't resolve. We don't need a com-
mittee to do it," Roberts said.
"Most of the problems that we
have come right from here,"
he said. "The city government is
no better than the people at this
table."
"I have no problem with my per-
formance or this form of govern-
ment or this charter to be taken a
hard look at. And I certainly can
take the criticism," Gerrity said.
'"This is not Beano-ocracy. It's a
democracy."
The commission must decide
who will serve on the charter
review committee, how they will
be selected and to whom they will
report.

OPINION


FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23,2005/News-Leader


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Christian Holy Day
Coleman Langshaw just plain
irritates me ("Whose holiday is
this anyway?" Dec. 16).
1 have disagreed with his pub-
lished views on two previous occa-
sions. I disagreed publicly about
the French. He thinks the French
are just swell ("It's time for peace
- with the French," April, 25, 2003).
1 think the French are sneaky and
traitorous backstabbers. ("The
(lower) case for the French," May
2,2003).
Again, I strongly disagreed with
Monsieur Langshaw about the
homosexual lifestyle, ("Scout's
honor no gays allowed," July 4,
2003).
He once again ticked me off
with his advocacy of illegal immi-
grants. But I did not wish to make
a career out of disagreeing with
this very disagreeable fellow, so I
just ignored him on this one;
although I still firmly believe that
anyone is welcome to visit our
home when invited, but not when
they sneak in through the back
door, remain indefinitely, while
helping themselves to all our goods
and failing to follow some very sim-
ple house rules.
Now I find myself disagreeing



Is He in or is He out?
Don't say Merry Christmas?
Say Happy Holiday?
How can it be happy without
Christ the Truth, The Way?
What is Christmas all about?
Is He in or is He out?
Was He born? Did He die?
For you? For I?
Are you sure you want to take a
chance, isn't it time to take a stance?
He has an open hand.
He is the open door.
He is the reason for all seasons.
Need there be more?
Christ is still in CHRISTmass.
He can be in you and me.
The choice is ours you see.
If He wasn't born and didn't die
wouldn't we be living a lie?
What do you have to lose
if Christ you do choose?
| What would your profit be?
What gain? Lose your soul .
believe in vain?
What will your Christmas be about?
Is He in or is He out?
by: Barbe Jordan


with the monsieur again, about his
latest rant about the traditional
Christian Holy Day, Christmas.
There are other non-Christian
holidays to be sure, such as
Hanukkah, Ramadan, Kwanzaa
and many others. But the people
who celebrate these special days
are entitled to celebrate (or not)
their own unique feasts with their
own unique names, without negat-
ing the Christians' right to cele-
brate their own uniquely named
"Christmas" Holy Day, at the
behest of a small but vocal group
who resents being excluded. They
feel entitled to crash the party and
re-name it while they are at it.
Well monsieur, you and others
like you are not being excluded.
Feel free to join in. But we are not
going to omit its proper name, sim-
ply because you object to the name.
It's our party, dude, and it is called
Christmas. Welcome to it, but shut
up already and enjoy it.
Furthermore, in our country,
(may God continue to bless it -
oops, sorry, I hope you're not
offended by my use of the "G"
word) which is the cradle of liber-
ty, we have spent untold treasure
and precious blood to ensure that
we remain free to make free choic-
es including the right not to believe
in God, or to purchase goods with
our hard-earned money from mer-
chants who welcome our patron-


0 11 the Best to Our Customers!


Thank you for making 2005
a great year!

age.
We are also free to refuse to
buy from hypocritical merchants
who would take our money, but
would deny us the right to call this
traditional celebration Christmas.
To these merchants I say: Keep
your "holiday" merchandise. I'll do
my "Christmas shopping where it
is appreciated. I do have that right.
As for you, monsieur, you are
free to celebrate or not celebrate
Christmas, or to buy a "holiday"
tree or shout "happy holidays," but
you are not free to silence my use
of the word Christmas.
You use the word "zealot" to
describe those who disagree with
you on this issue, but it is a more
apt description of you, sir.
According to the definition of the
word, (in my Merriam Webster
dictionary), zealot means "fanatical;
enthusiast." It also means bigot.
Look it up. I think the shoe fits per-
fectly well.
Merry Christmas.

the subject is mostly as an observ-
er only.
I grew up in a suburb of Atlanta.
Even as a teenager, I would sit back
and appreciate how good we had it
there. You knew most people you
saw, it was safe, no traffic jams,
people were polite and friendly, yet
there was all the entertainment or
employment you'd want within
easy driving distance, so it was cer-
tainly no backwater with no eco-
nomic prospects for young people.
Homes were affordable, jobs were
available, life was good.
Then it got "discovered" and
the "bigger is better" growth pro-
ponents arrived. My family was
builders and developers too, but
this was a new breed. Lots zoned
for one-acre lots were bought by'
developers, and magically
"rezoned" by politicians to whom
they had conveniently made cam-
paign contributions (I'm sure they
didn't expect anything in return),
so that they could cram four or
more homes on those lots. Areas
formerly reserved for homes were
rezoned for condos. More density
equals, of course, more cars on
the road in a given area. Some
roads were widened, but not near-
<..,.ly to, the extent the growth

demanded, and always after traffic
had reached crisis levels. So traffic
got bad. Real bad. I was in my 20's
before I ever had to worry about
"rush hour" over most of Atlanta
since there really wasn't one. New
shiny commercial areas started
popping up where there used to
be forests, again due to rezoning of
land previously, planned for resi-
dential use, even though we had
wide expanses of commercial areas
with rundown shops and vacant
units already.
Today, north of Atlanta, 30
miles from downtown, you will sit
in long traffic jams at 2:30 on a
weekday afternoon just to get to
the store or bank in what was just
a few years back a rural area. You
have to plan your days around traf-
fic, and friends you know on the
south side of Atlanta are a distant
memory, since getting together
for dinner takes more planning
than a trip to Disney World.
There are now parts of my
hometown that you do not want to
be in after dark. I remember walk-
ing along those same roads after a
ballgame at age 13 to go get pizza,
and my parents didn't have a prob-
lem with that. People aren't par-
ticularly friendly anymore, you.

don't know how to act really, since
if you wave hello at one person
you'll get a smile, but from most
others a scowl and a "he's crazy"
look. Even though I'm a native I
can go almost a year at a time with-
out running into anyone I know
there. Everything is impersonal
and alienated.
I am seeing a lot of parallels in
eastern Nassau County/Amelia
Island and my hometown. The
same things I saw early on in the
demise of my hometown are show-
ing up here recently. The lure of
"progress," which definitely has
its benefits, is enticing. But you
had better be careful what you
wish for in terms of growth. You
take for granted how nice things
are in the area until one day you
look up and realize it's gone. You've
sold it for a few pieces of silver.
And the worst thing is, you can
never get it back.
I don't vote here, but I would
advise you to vote for leaders who
see the long-term value of keep-
ing the growth "slow and steady"
(and done wisely) and not just the
jobs and "progress" available in
the short term of a boom.

Yulee Holiday Festival
I am sure people were recently asking, "Where
is Yulee?" when our small community began spread-
ing the word about the first Yulee Holiday Festival.
Sponsored by the Yulee Little League in an effort to
bring our growing community together for a day of
family fun, we have started a tradition that we look
forward to continuing next year.
The event could not have happened without the
support of our volunteers, the county commission-
ers, Sheriff Tommy Seagraves and members of our
community. Thanks to our community, our friends
and families for coming out and making the event
a success.
The weather was perfect and over 2,000 people
came out to enjoy the music, food and entertainment
all day, with over 600 kids taking part in the kid's
zone hosted by the Nassau Civitan Club.
Throughoutsthet day kids were able to get a glimpse ,,
and have their pictures taken with Ole' Saint Nick
and3'Stthpaw,'the JacksdVfille Suns mascot. ..
We would like to thank Paul Clark; Rick Keffer,
Ron Anderson and the News-Leader as corporate
sponsors for the festival. Thanks to Hertz Equipment
Rentals for the loan of three of the quietest gener-
ators. TC Pro Audio provided a fabulous sound sys-
tem complete with "sound man" Tony, who worked
diligently all day!
Entertainment headliners included the Woodbine
Opry Group, Lynn Nichols, Dillinger and Second
Hand Smoke. Also, area schools and churches par-
ticipated throughout the day.
Thanks to our area principals and music teach-
ers for having the heart and sense of humor to
endure the pie-throwing contest. Pies and prizes
were provided by the Yulee Wal-Mart.
Palm III Realty showed their community sup-
port by sponsoring the Gingerbread House Contest
Medals and ribbons were awarded to winners of all
ages.
Other donations were provided by Keep Nassau
Beautiful, Hedges Meat Shoppe, the Jacksonville
Suns and Murray's Grille.
Our most sincere gratitude goes out to our vol-
unteer fire department for being on standby for
any emergencies (thank goodness there were none)
and to the sheriff's deputies who assisted with the
traffic.
Last but not least we need to send out a special
thanks to all the tireless volunteers that came out
week after week, and then day after day, making dec-
orations and coordinating events. You know who you
are; we could not have pulled this off without you.
We are already talking about next year's plans
with even more events and booths. If you would like
to volunteer or have comments to share, please

A message of hope for 2006


away, the Christian community prepares
to celebrate one of its most sacred holi-
days, the birth of its Savior. Most of us
associate this time of the year with feelings of joy and
goodwill and excitement, and we tend to be more will-
ing to set aside our differences and look for the good
in each other, if only for a short while.
My critics say that I only point out the problems
of ouir community, that I dwell on what I perceive are
the shortcomings of elected and appointed public
officials who appear to have forgotten who they are
supposed to be serving. To that I say, "Guilty as
charged." But today, in the true Christmas spirit, I'm
going to try a different approach in viewing our com-
nlunity's political landscape. I am going to talk about
"hope," and highlight some of the positive issues of
the coming new year.
First, our new Clerk of the Court John Crawford
has made quite an impression during his first year in
office. Crawford, who is the first to tell you he had a
lot of fence-mending to do after previously serving as
a county commissioner, appears to genuinely want to
serve the citizens who elected him. Within the first
six weeks of his tenure, he and his staff sensed
something "wasn't quite right," and based on a sub-
sequent investigation discovered over a million dol-
lars in taxpayer money was missing from his prede-
'essor's administration.
That's not to say there haven't been some glitch-
es along the way, but the refreshing thing is that
when they have surfaced, Crawford has not only
addressed them, he has done it in the open with
communications to the county commission and the
local media. That's not the way things have normally
been handled in Nassau County.


S The next symbol of hope in
our community lies with Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves. Seagraves,
a proud graduate of the FBI's
National Academy, has had his
share of personnel issues with-
in his department, but he has
(to my knowledge) dealt with
them swiftly and professionally.
He saved the taxpayers consid-
erable funds by switching from
Mike Boyle Ford to Chevrolet for his fleet,
and he streamlined his com-
mand structure to improve effi-
WAITA ciency. He returned nearly a
MINUTE million dollars to the county
commission in unused funds,
and he continues to get out into the community to
meet with the citizens. If I have any criticism of the
sheriff, it would be that he's almost "too nice."
Whenever we meet I tell him he needs to "get tough
with the county commission," and tell them they
have to move him out of the "trailer park" on A1A." I
heard last week that they are going to start looking
at options for a new administration building, so
maybe there really is hope in 2006.
One of the other great sources of "hope" for our
community in 2006 lies in various grassroots' groups
like Concerned Friends of Fernandina, Amelia
Island Association and others. These are made up of
terrific folks who give of their time, talents and treas-
ures to make this wonderful place we all call ".home"
even better and greater. All of us owe them a great
debt of gratitude.
In the private sector, there is an individual who is
a beacon of hope for thousands of Nassau County


residents, and that's Susan Holden-Dodge, director
of Barnabas Center. If you're like me, you probably
think of Barnabas Center as that building on 14th
Street where you take your old appliances to be
refurbished to help needy families. That part is true,
but it is so much more.
Under Holden-Dodge's leadership, during 2005
the Barnabas Center has opened a primary care clin-
ic for the underprivileged, and has provided over '
$14,000 in free prescriptions, over $7,000 in free
vision care, over $5,000 in free propane fuel, over
$43,000 in help with electric bills, over $5,000 to help
with water bills, over $30,000 in free dental care
(with nine local dentists) and over $84,000 in rent
subsidies. These dollars didn't go off to Washington,
or New York, or some other distant city, they stayed
right here at home to help over 3,000 local adults
and over 2,300 local kids who were hurting. And the
money came from people like you, and you and you.
Wow! Now that's hope. Thanks Susan.
Finally, as I mentioned earlier, most of us tradi-
tionally view Christmas as a holiday of joy and good-
will, and indeed it is still a time for both of those
emotions. But in the Christian community, the birth
of the Savior 2,000 years ago brought far more than
joy; it also brought the gift of hope, the hope that
mankind would no longer be barred from receiving
eternal salvation. This was the hope that through the
Christ child that was born in the manger, those who
accepted Him would be saved. This was a hope the
world had never known.
That hope survives today. God bless you one and
all.

Island lights up with elaborate holiday displays


Our island loves its holiday lights. Big
Guy and I have an annual date. You might
say it is enlightening. We take a tour of
the island light displays. We continue to
be amazed at what lengths folks will go to
create fanciful lighted decorations in their
yards. Entire neighborhoods coordinate
elaborate displays. Northridge Lane offers
the Rose Bowl parade of all neighborhood
light displays. Just off Citrona, it is always
a must on our Christmas light tour.
Yes, Rockefeller Center has its tradi-
tional tree that charms New York City visi-
tors every holiday season. We have an
equally treasured tradition. The Freeman
Well Drilling Company fabricates a tall
Christmas tree that is visible as one leaves
Amelia Island heading out AIA Each year
when I first see it, I smile to myself know-


Sing that, yes, 'tis
the season.

derful gift to the

Downtown Fernandina Beach charms
with its traditional decorations and our
resorts dazzle us with miles and miles of
twinkling lights. Decorating runs the
gamut. The deer outlined in white lights
continue to be favorites. Some yards fea-
ture religious themes making clear to all
that their decorations are "Christmas" and
not "holiday."
The bright colored and bobbing inflata-
bles are a little unsettling but offer a dif-
ferent look.
We try and do our part but our efforts
are modest compared to most. Our lights
are white and cover the bushes around
the house. Our Florida Christmas tree is a
single tall palm in our backyard that we
adorn with lights.

"Birthday Party for Jesus" followed the
evening service at First Baptist Church, Callahan
on Sunday in the Family Life Center. This is an
annual event to help our kids focus on why we cel-
ebrate Christmas. The Rev. Tom Tyre is the chil-
dren's pastor. His lovely wife is one of the many
great "Angels of Mercy" at Baptist Medical Center
Nassau, Fernandina Beach. There is one from
Hilliard and Kingsland also that I met recently!
I'm sure there are others.
First Baptist, Callahan has two "Ends of the
Earth" mission teams traveling this month. On
Dec. 8, the first team traveled to East Asia to do
work on college campuses and prayer walking in
villages. Some of the team members are fighting
issues and other have family issues of concern.
Team members are Brother Todd Carr (youth
pastor), Lee and Crystal Draper, Wally and Juanita
Pittman and their son "Stan" Pittman, who has
served in this area before.
On Monday, a construction team will leave for
Bakel, Senegal, West Africa to build a basketball
court for a school that will also be used by our
missionaries there for outreach. Brother Dan
Goodpaster is leading this team, which includes
Chris Moore, Rich Moore, Tim and Stacy
Williams and Phillip Prom. The most important
thing we can send with our team members is our
Sprayers. Pray for their health and.safety and that
God will be preparing hearts to hear the word.
Dr. David Drake, director of missions of
Northeast Florida Baptist Association, and the
Rev. Ray McKendree were pulpit guest speakers
at Gray Gables First Baptist Church recently.
Church-wide "Open House" was hosted by
Gray Gables staff and deacons on Dec. 17 at Paul
and Goldie O'Dell's home.
Seniors on the go! "Gospel Music Spectacular"
is Jan. 6 at Westside Baptist Church. Groups
include Kingsmen, Perrys, Brian Free and
Assurance, and the Florida Boys. Cost is $13 per
person in advance or $15 per person at the door.
Our bus will leave Gray Gables Baptist Church at
5 p.m. and we will have dinner at the Piccadilly
Cafeteria.
Amelia Baptist Church youth will get their
wishes. They are going on a ski'trip Dec. 27-30.
On Dec. 28, there will be no evening activities or
prayer meeting.
The Christmas Eve communion service is 8
p.m. Dec. 25. "Happy Birthday, Jesus!" No Sunday
school or child care. Bring kids to worship.
The ladies Tuesday morning Bible study
begins Jan. 3 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Beth Moore's
"Beloved Disciple: The Life and Ministry of John."
Senior pastor of First Baptist church,
Fernandina Beach, the Rev. Jeff Overton, writes
from the Shepherd's Staff: "Christmas what a
wonderful time of year! Yet it seems to have
.become the busiest time of the year. We work all
day long, then get caught up in shopping, parties,
activities and such that we miss so much of what
is going on around us. Not unlike the day the
Christ child was born. There was much hustle and
bustle. Many were in town for taxation. The inns
were packed.
"I am sure the streets were busy and people
had much to do. I am sure the joy of a newborn
baby crying was drowned out in the hectic pace of


the town. Yes, everyone
missed the little thing that
night the birth of a small
child. Back in the stable, an
event was taking place that
would impact the world for-
ever and with the exception
of a few shepherds, everyone
missed it. Yet, this small
child that everyone missed
Hilda that night would radically
Higginbotham change the world and
change you and me. Don't
""" try to convince me that the
HILDA'S little things don't matter.
HEARABOJUTS They may just be the most
important things to happen.
"You see, I think its the little things we should
pay attention to at Christmas time. Look for the
warm smile on the faces of young parents as they
see the joy and excitement in their little ones on
Christmas day. Look for the love in the heart of a
child as she gives her mother a handmade
Christmas card. But most of all, look for the little
baby in the manger and make sure that He stays
the reason for our season. Thousands passed Him
by that first Christmas and never knew it! Don't let
that happen to you this year. Jesus don't miss
Him this Christmas season! Have a Merry -
Christmas."
"Shine on Us" was a presentation by the
Sanctuary Choir on Sunday. This was a "celebra-
tion of the birth of our Savior" through the gift of
music.
"Smiling Micki" Smith, your recent solo, "Go
Tell It On The Mountain," was memorable!
The Rev. Charles (Charlie) McDonough and
wife Stacy and three children were special visitors
at First Baptist Dec. 11. He gave a testimony and
was given a great vote to come to our island to
serve as youth minister at First Baptist, beginning
in January.
At the evening service Dec. 11, the presenta-
tion of "Objects in Christmas are closer than they
appear" by "Legacy," the youth choir ministry of
First Baptist Church, directed by Vicki Williams, a
great pianist made for a memorable evening.
Thoughts from Pastor Jackie Hayes of
Springhill Baptist Church: 'The first Sunday of
this month will prove to be one of the pivotal days
in our church. For a year, we have been moving
toward this historical day. We have prayed,
planned, and have finally come to this day of Dec.
4 when we will install our first elder team in our
church. This team consists of John Ketchum, Jake
Mottayaw and Bill Sullenger. Plan to join us as we
take this necessary step toward biblical leader-
ship.
"The third weekend of this month will also be
another pivotal day in our church. On that week-
end, Dec. 17-18, we are inviting Jason and Kristin
Gray to be with us in view of a call to serve as stu-
dent pastor. I know it has been a long time com-
ing, but we believe God has been preparing this
young couple for us and for them. Jason is gradu-
ating from The Southern Baptist Seminary in
Louisville, Ky., on Dec. 9. They are from the

rating is shared while in others there is a
designated decorator. At our house, Big
Guy is conspicuously missing when the
strings of lights come out. We have
learned it is easier to buy new lights than
try and untangle the old, which usually
don't work anyway. They don't cost much
and our sanity and strained good will are
worth it.
Whatever the process and family
dynamics, the end results are very
impressive. Our island sparkles with
lights of all colors and in every conceiv-
able configuration. A treat to be savored.

Each year we celebrate the birth
of a helpless child: Jesus the Lord,
the King of kings, the Messiah, the
only Son of God. However, the sig-
nificance of this special gift, given to
us by our Heavenly Father, often
becomes secondary to all the other
things that the Christmas season has
to offer During this time of year, we
are also thinking about all of the
gifts that we ma,' recede and all
those vhe hane to purchase for our
lo.'ed ones and friends Surely, dec.
orating our homes, busing gifts,
and all or the holiday preparations
can become quite hectic, neverthe.
less, most everone enjoys doing
these things for this special holiday.
Also, because of Christmas, most :
places of worship have special
events scheduled during this time ol
year that we should try to anend
and take part in. Cod wants us to
enjoy all of the wonderful things
during this blessed time, and to be
mindful of the great love that He ha'
for us His love is uniquely exempli.

Seek to bear the image of



Jesus Christ in the world


n a bygone era, cabinet mak-
ers who were master crafts-
men would with great pride
stamp the inside drawers of
their creations with their name
and sometimes even the date and
place.
I think this is what my wife
had in mind when she asked my
father to write his name in the
top drawer of the desk he built
and recently gave to me.
Although he seemed a bit hesi-
tant, he agreed to her sweet
request.
It wasn't long after he had
gone home that I began filling
the drawer he had signed with
paper clips, highlighters and note
cards. It was then that his signa-
ture caught my attention. As I
studied the lines of his own hand
I thought to myself how much of
my life truly does bear his signa-
ture.
In so many ways I am like my
father. It is an inescapable reality
of DNA and the genetic pool. I'm
built like him, I walk like him, I
talk like him (well, not all the
time).
In so many ways I am made
in his image not only physically
but also emotionally and spiritu-
ally. All those years I'm sure he
wanted to say, "Well fine, you
don't have to go to church if you
don't want to." But he never gave
up on me.
Even through the bad and
rebellious years he hung in there
with me and I knew in my inner-
most being how much he loved
me. My life bore the stamp (the
signature) of his love.


One time
'" when Jesus
was teach-
ing his disci-
S-'- ples, Philip
S asked Jesus
t to "Show us
the Father
and that will
Conrad be enough
Sharps for us."
... Jesus
responded,
PULPIT "Don't you
NOTES know me,
Philip, even
after I have been among you for
such a long time? Anyone who has
seen me has seen the Father...
Don't you believe that I am in the
Father, and the Father in me? The
words, Isay to you are not just my
own. Rather, it is the Father, living
in me, who is doing his work."
(John 14:9a, 10)
Christmas morning is more
than a celebration of the birth of
a child. It is the celebration of the
incarnation: God entering our
world, God with us "Immanuel."
In this child, Jesus; we acknowl-
edge the very presence of God.
To recognize him as the Son of
the Most High (which in itself is
a gift of faith) is to acknowledge
that God himself has journeyed
the path of human life. He knows
life as well as you and me with all
its joys and sorrows.
Jesus is the very substance of
God. We see in him God's perfec-
tion, God's pure image. His
actions are God's actions. His
mercy is God's mercy. His for-
giveness is God's forgiveness.


His word is the word of God.
Christ's life bore the stamp, the
very signature of the Creator,
God.
As we peer into the manger, it
is important to remember that
God so loved the world that he
was not willing to abandon it. He
came into the world in order to
save, to redeem. As we look upon
the child of the nativity let us
remember that we too bear the
image of God. (Genesis 1:26-27).
By the power of the Holy Spirit
we are made one with another
and with Jesus Christ -
Immanuel "God with us."
As people of faith it is impor-
tant to remember that what we
do, we do for Christ. What we
say, we say for Christ. We must
seek to faithfully bear the image
of Christ in our world: innocent
as a babe in a manger, wise as a
teacher, obedient as the one in
the garden who agonized over
the cross, and faithful as himn
who carried it to his own crucifix-
ion. The image of God in Jesus
Christ is not one that the world
often recognizes (there is actual-
ly little desire). Nonetheless his
likeness is the image, the stamp,
the signature we are called to
bear.
May this Christmas be a time
of joy, a time of peace, and a time
of preparation for we too are
called to a new birth; to bear the
image of Jesus Christ in the
world.
This column is from a selection
of favorites by the Rev. Conrad C.
Sharps that have appeared in the
News-Leader in recent years.

flower must be kept snowy white.
This is done by tying the leaves
together over the heads, when
the heads are between 2-3 inches
in diameter.
The heads should be exam-
ined from time to time to see
when they are ready to cut. If
you let them stay too long, the
heads get loose and grainy, and
lose much of their tenderness.

Any ideas why? MS

A What may be occurring is
.the pollen from your neigh-
bor's field corn may be reaching
the silks of your sweet corn and
altering the flavor.
Corn is cross-pollinated by
wind-blown pollen from the male
flowers, or tassels, at the top of
the plant to the female flowers,
or silks, about midway up the
stalks.
Each kernel develops from an
individually pollinated silk. Super
sweet hybrids carry a genetic
factor, which results in a high
sugar content. The super sweet
character is lost if the corn is pol-
linated by ordinary sweet corn or
field corn, so the super sweet
hybrids should be planted away
from any other types of corn
(several hundred feet might
work best).
According to Texas A&M, the
flavor of sweet corn is also highly
dependent on weather condi-
tions. If it rains within a week of
harvest time, the flavor of sweet
corn is often greatly diminished.

persimmons is less complicated
than for the astringent types,
because they can be eaten

Non-astringent fruit are good
for fresh eating and are excellent
with pears, dates, apples, citrus,
raisins, and/or coconut in salads.
They have distinct advantages in
marketing and handling because
they can be picked earlier and
have a longer shelf life.
Consumer acceptance is greater
because they do not have to be
eaten in the "gooey-drippy" state,
which is objectionable to many
people.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23.2005 NEWS News-Leader


HILDA Continued from 8A
Central Florida area, so they will
be close to home. We are greatly
impressed by this young couple
and feel they will provide the lead-
ership we desire in our student
ministry. On Dec. 18, you will
have an opportunity to meet him,
converse with him and then vote
to call him."
The Rev. Chris Taylor, former
staff member at Gray Gables
Baptist Church, Callahan, left to
pastor Clear Springs Baptist
Church, Mascot, Tenn., recently.
He let us hear from him as I
asked him to do in our last con-
versation just before leaving.
Someone once said, "Christmas is
a race to see which gives out first
your money or your feet." Isn't it
a shame that our society today
has such a skewed and perverse
view of what Christmas is about? I
get appalled more every year by
the secularization of Christmas.
I read a quote from John
MacArthur recently about the
meaning of Christmas. He said,
"If we could condense the truths
of Christmas into only three
words, these would be the words
'God with us.' We tend to focus
our attention at Christmas on the
infancy of Christ The greater
truth of the holiday is His deity.
More astonishing than a baby in
the manger is the truth that this
promised baby is the omnipotent
Creator of the heavens and the
earth!"
"May we not get caught up in
all the worldliness of the season.
Rather, would be to God that we


celebrate the gift of Immanuel,
God With Us!
"On behalf of Ginger, Caitlin,
Caroline, Carleigh and I, we wish
you a Christ-filled Christmas."
You are the "Light of the
World!" The Rev. Bruce Jones
reflects from Memorial United
Methodist Church: "I want to
thank everyone who has shared
their light with us at our worship
services. It has been inspiring and
heartwarming to see our light
growing over the past two weeks.
We can only rejoice for your faith-
fulness to the ministry of
Memorial.
"Our lights will continue to
shine through the Advent season.
I encourage every family to bring
their candle to church to add to
the glow of our congregation.
What a wonderful way to cele-
brate the birth of the Savior!"
Every Monday from 7-8 p.m. in
Maxwell Hall the Men's Group.
will meet. Contact Bill Scheff at
261-3575 with questions.
The First Presbyterian Church
will welcome its interim pastor,
Dr. Robert Smith, Jan. 4. "We
wholeheartedly believe that he
has the ability and skills to be a
wonderful asset to our church as
interim pastor, advisor, adminis-
trator, shepherd and friend."
Dr. Smith will be working
closely with the pastor nominat-
ing committee. He looks forward
to facilitating us during this transi-
tion period as we reflect and dis-
cern God's will for our church
and prepare for our future. Please
extend a warm "Presbyterian
Welcome" to Dr. Smith when he


arrives in January.
A graduate of Princeton
University and Harvard Law
School, "Bob" enjoyed a success-
ful legal practice in Jacksonville.
He served in the U.S. Navy, in
which he holds the rank of CDR,
USNR (r). Sensing a call to the
pastoral ministry, he entered
Columbia Theological Seminary
and was ordained as a
Presbyterian Minister of Word
and Sacrament. He received his
Doctor of Ministry Degree from
Lexington Seminary.
"Bob" has served pastorates in
Georgia, Kentucky and Florida.
More recently, he has served as
interim pastor in several Florida
churches. At the request of
Columbia Seminary, he joined
their faculty to organize and
direct the Lay Institute of Faith
and Life. He is the principal
instructor of the National Bethel
Bible program, teaching pastors
from the United States and
Canada in the annual Bethel
Pastor's Clinic. "Bob" is married
to Dr. Phoebe Smith, a college
professor of English Literature.
They have three adult sons.
Welcome to the Sunshine State
and First Presbyterian Church in
Fernandina Beach!
The congregation extends its
appreciation to the members of
the Interim Pastor's Search
Committee: Doc Burgess (choir),
Todd Davis, John Drew, JAck
Meeks, Shirley Owens and Kasey
Sapp.
"May our Great Heavenly
Father continue to watch over us
and keep us in His loving care."


Interview challenge competition


prepares students for job search


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader

In a hushed common room at
Fernandina Beach High School,
an interview challenge competi-
tion among students and an
awards ceremony- was held under
the auspices of Communities in
Schools with the cooperation of
businesspeople, retirees and vol-
unteers from the Fernandina
Beach community. Students sat at
attention, and there was not a
sound in the room except from the
participants.
The goal of the competition was
to prepare students who will soon
be looking for jobs so they would
know what to expect from an
interview and what prospective
employers would expect from
them.
The competition was conceived
by Abigail Carter, who works with.
Life-Management class students
to help prepare them for the future.
'To do that," she says, "we did
career assessments with the stu-
dents; resume writing workshops;
and interview skills workshops'- all
with career speakers, and we put
the students through career inter-,
views with community people. The
last thing we did was a mock inter-
view," Carter said.
Then came the interview chal-


lenge earlier this month.
The top two finalists were upper
classmen Clint Lewis and
Raymond Roberts.
In the freshman class, Charlotte
Hoxie took first place and
second place ended in a tie
between Julian Spencer and Kaitlyn
Cooper.
Career coaches were Carter
and Mollie Jeffords, who worked
with students throughout the
semester to prepare then for the
interviews and tell them about
career possibilities.
"Another community volunteer,
Dana Fitzgerald, is retired from
CBS and comes in every
Tuesday and Thursday and
coaches the boys," Carter said. "So
he is a part of the career counsel-
ing. He sold ad time for 20
years and has worked with PBS
too, in the past," she said.
"His work with the boys is very
helpful."
Judges for the competition were
Anita Cooper of Century 21 Realty;
Jason Fouraker, human resources,
Baptist Medical Center; DeArmas
Graham, FBHS assistant principal;
Jenny Hembrecht, human
resources, First Coast Community
Bank and Ted Jones, Baptist
Medical Center.
Interviewers were Fitzgerald,

Nassau House redirects youths

HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader


For Nassau County juvenile
offenders between the ages of 14-
19, Nassau Halfway House is an
alternative to incarceration. Youths
considered moderate risk for resi-
dential placement are referred to
the home by court order. About 24
youths are usually in residence.
At Nassau Halfway House, juve-
nile offenders are offered social
skill development and anger man-
agement as well as individual, group
and family counseling. Daily jour-
nals are encouraged as a positive
way to vent feelings and chart
growth.
When asked how Nassau House
has helped him, one youth said, "It
has helped my decision making a
lot and I learned respect."
Nassau Halfway House was cre-
ated in 1973 in an effort to "protect
the public by delivering a compre-
hensive cognitive-based treatment
program that will reduce sex
offenses, substance abuse and
other delinquent behaviors associ-
ated with juvenile crime," said
Community Advisory Board presi-
dent Jeff Hall.
Hall said the home benefits our
community "by redirecting the lives
of youth assigned to the program so
that juvenile crime and delinquen-
cy are reduced..."
"We teach obedience, persever-
ance, self-discipline and choices,"
said administrative manager Keisha
Williams.
"I thank God for the experienced
staff who have worked long hours
and volunteered to stay late.

Police to purchase 5 new vehicles


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader


After weeks debating the cost
effectiveness of proposed vehicle
purchases, the Fernandina Beach
Police Department will buy five


vehicles instead of the eight origi-
nally planned.
City commissioners voted unan-
imously last month to approve the
revised plan, called the 5/7
Rotation Plan. Commissioner Joe
Gerrity, a vocal critic of the original


proposal, commended the depart-
ment
"I'd just like to congratulate you
on a commonsense approach,"
Gerrity said following the depart-
ment's presentation. "I'm very
pleased."
Under the new plan, the depart-
ment will purchase five new vehi-
cles to replace five that have
between 61,007 and 94,329 miles.
Vehicles in the 5/7 Plan will
rotate to the police department's
investigations and administration
divisions, rather than to other city
departments as in the past
They will serve one to two addi-
tional years in police investigations
or, administration. After seven
years, they will then go'to' othei
departments or to auction. Auction
proceeds will go into the general
fund.
The department will continue to
give the community "a quality level
of service," Interim Police Chief
Capt. James Thompson said.
"We will save city taxpayers a
significant amount of money each
year," he said, noting a $78,831
vehicle cost savings between the
5/7 Plan and the previous propos-
al.
Patrol vehicles are classified as
"severe duty vehicles" and need
to be rotated out of service before
they become too expensive to oper-
ate, maintenance administrator
Jeremiah Glisson said.
"'hese are our vehicles that roll
all the time," Thompson said.
"These are the vehicles that are
subject to.get into any type of police
pursuit.. .These are the ones that
I'm concentrating on replacing
every five years."

Deputies suspended


for nightclub antics


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Two Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies will be suspended from'
duty for 10 days following an inter-
nal investigation into their behav-
ior at an Amelia Island nightclub.
Witnesses said deputies Lance
McConnell, 34, and Cedric Arline,
28, became intoxicated and dis-
ruptive at the bar and later at
McConnell's residence.
McConnell was also investigated
for allegedly helping a male friend
who was under the age of 21 to
purchase alcohol at the bar, but
those accusations were not sus-
tained in the sheriff's investiga-
tion.
Arline and McConnell report-
edly became intoxicated at the
Falcon's Nest bar on Sept 21, and
witnesses said McConnell became
disruptive and was asked to leave.
Arline was found lying in bushes
outside the bar, "in view of work-
ers and patrons of the (bar), and
in view of other deputies that were
working off-duty at the Falcon's
Nest."
Both men were off duty from
the sheriff's office at the time and
were at the bar as patrons, accord-
ing to Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves.
"Even still, you're a cop 24
hours a day, seven days a week,"
Seagraves said. "We can't be the
town drunk and be an officer."
According to bar manager
Carrie Henderson, McConnell
had called prior to his arrival at the
bar requesting special permission
for a friend of his to be allowed
into the bar even though he was
under the age of 21. Henderson
said she allowed McConnell's
friend to enter the bar with the
condition that his hands be
marked to indicate that he was
under the legal drinking age.
"Approximately 30 minutes
later I saw the young man with a
beer and a shot making his way
through the bar towards the front
deck," Henderson said in a written
statement for the investigation. "I
... watched through the window
to see if the drinks were being
delivered or if they were his.
Seconds later he took a drink and
I had my security take the drinks
and remove him (from the bar)."
Henderson said she also told
McConnell to leave the;barwitlh)
hfstfniecndc- "l1rn9 ",r
'Henderson told investigators
that she "suspects ... McConnell
had something to do with (his
friend) obtaining an alcoholic bev-
erage, however she did not actu-
ally witness anything that would
confirm her suspicion."
McConnell's friend, Cody
Music, told investigators
McConnell did not help him pur-
chase the alcohol.
According to Seagraves,
McConnell and Arline both
received rides from the Falcon's
Nest to McConnell's residence.
Witnesses, including sheriff's
dispatcher Gail Hall, told investi-
gators McConnell and Arline
began to fight when they returned
to McConnell's residence after
leaving the Falcon's Nest.
Hall, McConnell's roommate,
said she had to hide the keys to
Arline's patrol vehicle to keep him
from driving away, and another
deputy was called to the home to
"help with the situation."
McConnell told investigators
he did not remember whether or
not he argued with Arline. Arline
told investigators the argument
between him and McConnell was
nothing "other than a calm con-
versation ... there were no raised
voices (and) no arguing ..."
Seagraves said there was no
evidence found during the course
of the investigation that either
deputy did anything illegal, and
he said neither man has been dis-
ciplined in the past. Seagraves
said he considered those facts
when deciding whether to fire the
deputies.
Both men have been with the
department for five years.
"If they were charged with a
crime, there'd be no question ...
they'd be terminated," Seagraves
said.
Following their 10-day sus-
pension from work, Arline and
McConell will be suspended from


working off duty for three months.
Arline was employed as a securi-
ty guard at the Falcon's Nest prior
to the Sept. 21 incident.
"We've put a lot of money and
time into training (Arline and
McConnell)," Seagraves said. "I
felt disciplinary action could cor-
rect this problem."

SPORTS MEDICINE
GREGORY SMITH. M.D.


Don't play

ifyou're sick
am I am a high school bas-
ketball player. If I am
sick, is it still OK to play?

A Athletic participation
: during illness is gener-
ally not recommended. Your
body is trying to fight off this
illness and needs as much
energy as possible to do so.
Athletic participation essen-
tially drains you of that ener-
gy, leaving less for your
immune system to use to
fight off the illness. Over-
exertion during illness can
also lead to depression of the
immune system, putting you
at increased risk for more
serious illness.
This topic was recently
addressed at a national meet-
ing of the American
Orthopedic Society for Sports
Medicine and some general
recommendations were pre-
sented.
If an athlete's symptoms
are clearly "above the neck,"
meaning nasal congestion
and sore throat, it is felt to be
acceptable to train on a limit-
ed intensity level and increase
intensity if symptoms are not
increased. Certainly if you
feel worse, you should stop.
If an athlete has symptoms
"below the neck," such as
cough, body aches, muscle
soreness or shortness of
breath, then training and par-
ticipation should stop until
these symptoms have
resolved. If you have a fever,
it is not recommended that
you participate. One particu-
lar concern regarding fever is
that it may be associated with
myocarditis, an inflammation
of the heart. Myocarditis has
an association with sudden
death in athletes.
Mallet finger common
I recently saw a young
man who reached out to qatch
a pass but took his eye ofi the
ball for just a moment, and it
was enough to allow the ball
to strike him on the end of
the finger instead of hitting
him in his palm. With a quick
shot of pain anda look at his
bent finger, he knew that
something was likely broken.
Overall, he could straight-
en his finger but he was
unable to straighten the tip,
which just hung down awk-
wardly. He was seen in the
office and X-rays showed that
he had sustained a fracture of
the tip of his finger, just at the
point where the tendon which
helps straighten the finger
attaches, a so-called bony
mallet finger.
Mallet fingers are com-
mon in any sport that involves
catching a ball. Mallet fingers
are caused by disruption of
the bony or soft tissue tendon
attachment of the extensor,
tendon. The extensor tendon
runs along the backside of
the digit and controls exten-
sion or straightening of the
digit. Mallet fingers most
commonly are treated non-
surgically with several weeks
of splinting.
My patient was allowed to
return to play in his splint
after a few weeks, once his
follow-up X-rays showed satis-
factory early healing.
Deckthe halls with care .
A report from the Centers
for Disease Control estimates
that some 6,000 people will
sustain Christmas decoration-
related injuries this holiday
season. While the most seri-
ous of those may involve
falling off the roof while try-
ing to string the lights, other
mishaps are seen, such as
falling from the ladder while
trying to reach the top of the
tree. Injuries to men are more
common, and fractures repre-
sent the most common rea-
son for a visit to the emer-
gency room. "

'Tis tlie weekend for catching giant sea trout.
With Christmas just a few days away, giant sea
trout should be running this weekend at many of
the traditional sea trout holes.
"Harold Todd weighed in a beautiful 6-pound
sea trout just the other day," Atlantic Bait &
Seafood's Charlie Taylor said. "Harold also had a
few more nice sea trout in the 20-inch category."
Some of the best "gator"
sea trout action is coming
from the Shave Bridge while
drifting live shrimp deep
Sunder a trout float. Some of
Sthe best action on the west-
side of the bridge is coming
during the last few hours of
the falling tide. Trout fisher-
~. __ men are doing well at the east-
side of the bridge during the
Terry Lacoss incoming tide.
... -- Sea trout are also running
ONTwell in Egans Creek during
ON THE the falling tide while trolling
WATER 1/4-ounce led head jigs
rigged with chartreuse curly
plastic tails. Drifting live shrimp deep under a trout
float is also producing nice size sea trout in Egans
Creek at the 14th Street Bridge.
Don Whitman of Leaders & Sinkers bait and
tackle shop reports lots of redfish action in local
creeks.
"The local creeks are jamming with redfish,"
Whitman said. "If you want to catch redfish in the
backwater, the time is now."
Some of the best redfish action should come
early in the afternoon during the flooding tide,
which arrives at 1:50 p.m. Backwater fishermen
have been doing well with Berkley "Gulp" shrimp
rigged with a 1/8-ounce led head jig. Gold 1/4-
ounce spoons have also been working well for red-
fish weighing to 8 pounds.
Some of the more productive areas for redfish
during the past few days include West Jackson
Creek, Horse Head and the Bells River.
Black sea bass are running at East FC along
with a few red snapper. Gary Palmer has been
doing well with grouper weighing to 15 pounds at
Schultz's Fish Market.


TERRY LACOSS/SPiCIALI
Mary Lee Forehand shows off a 10-pound
sea trout caught in the dead of winter.


Trout fishermen are catching sea trout at the
new rock jetties during the falling tide while fish-
ing at the southern tip of Amelia Island. A few
beach whiting are biting during the flood tide just
north of the old pipeline on the beach.
Striper fishing remains excellent in both the St.
Marys and Nassau rivers during the last few hours
of the falling tide.
The best bet is trolling led head jigs rigged with
curly plastic tails in Egans Creek for spotted sea
trout.
The News-Leader encourages local anglers to sub-
mit photographs of their catches. We will publish
them in this space on Fridays. E-mail photos to

solation game, West Nassau (8-6), below, defeated Hilliard 58-36 to clinch third place. Latesha
Henry of Hilliard led all scorers with 16 points and teammate Tracy Sweat chipped in nine.
West Nassau's Jenna Jones and Niki Downey had 10 points apiece and Kim Denmark and
Portica Simmons had eight each. FBHS advanced to the championship game with Monday's 43-
31 win over Hilliard. Henry was again the top scorer with 17 points. FBHS was led by Kayla
Mercer with 13. Laci Roberts had 10. Providence earned a spot in the title game with a 62-43
win over West Nassau on Monday. Andrea Kuhlman led Providence with 19 points. Denmark
led the Lady Warriors with 12 points and Jones had 10. "We played good defense," FBHS
Coach Brian Shuster said. "The offense is not really clicking. We're grinding it out now, playing
good defense. Hopefully shots will start falling." The Lady Pirates are now on a holiday hiatus
and will return to play in January. They host Hilliard Jan. 5 and travel to Baker County Jan. 6.

Kwanzaa: A celebration 'for everyone


KAREN MILLER
For the News-Leader

f you ask people on the street
what they think about the
African- American celebration
of Kwanzaa, a lot of folks
shrug it off, saying that it's an
"invented" holiday and not a real
event, mostly because there's not
enough information in the media
to give the holiday any historic or
religious backing.
Certainly, Kwanzaa appears to
be a new holiday tradition in our
society, with Kwanzaa stamps
issued by the U.S. Postal Service,
Kwanzaa greeting cards for sale
and even Kwanzaa candles and
ornaments for the Christmas tree.
But in actuality, Kwanzaa has
been around since 1966, when
Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga pro-
posed an African-American cele-
bration that was historic and reli-
gious for its time, in that it was
born out of the tumultuous world
of social and political changes of
African-Americans and their
struggling culture during the 60s
decade.
While Americans of many
faiths and races celebrate
Christmas, Hanukkah and even
Boxing Day by Christian, Jewish
and European standards,
Kwanzaa is also a very special cel-
ebration that defines principles,
practices and symbols that are
geared toward the social and spir-
itual needs of African-Americans.
The celebration was designed to
allow the culture to strengthen


Raven of
Image &
Style pres-
ents her fam-
ily's Kwanzaa
table that
includes
bracelets
adorned with
cowrie shells
that symbol-
ize prosperity
for the com-
ing year.

LEADER


their self-worth, honor their
past and evaluate their futures
for fuller and more productive
lives.
The celebration of Kwanzaa is
all about self-identity and self-
esteem, and Fernandina Beach
resident Raven, owner of Image
and Style, claims, "Kwanzaa is not
just for African-Americans, it's for
everyone!" The holiday is cele-
brated from Dec. 26 through Jan.
1, with each day focused on seven
principles including: Unity, Self-
Determination, Collective Work
and Responsibility, Cooperative
Economics, Purpose, Creativity
and Faith.
Raven states, "This is a time of
the year for conversations with


your family and friends, and set-
ting goals for the year to come.
My husband and I set up a
Kwanzaa table and light a
candle each night while we cele-
brate with my stepson. We
exchange small gifts that reflect
the principle for that evening, and
we talk about each principle and
how we use them in our everyday
lives."
The traditional Kwanzaa table
features a straw mat with seven
candles, an ear of corn, a unity
cup, plus gifts and a feast for the
celebrants; all items on the table
are symbolic to the celebration
that encourages thought provok-
ing conversations about the lives
and history of African-Americans


and their invited guests.
Raven goes on to say that their
conversations could include any-
thing from discussing personal *
goals for the coming year and
even financial objectives, focusing
on improving and enhancing their
lives by embracing the culture
and strength that has sustained
the African-American population
throughout the years.
And as Raven believes that
Kwanzaa is for everyone, the cele-
bration is actually being recog-
nized by many non African-
Americans and other cultures
throughout the world, because
the principles of Kwanzaa can be
applied to all human beings who
yearn for freedom, self worth,


The celebration is actu-
ally being recognized by
many non African-
Americans and other
cultures throughout the
world, because the
principles ofKwanzaa
can be applied to all
human beings who
yearn for freedom, self
worth, rejuvenation of
the spirit and commit-
ment to basic values and
personal goals.


rejuvenation of the spirit and com-
mitment to basic values and per-
sonal goals.
So if your dining room table
isn't already overcrowded with an
advent wreath, a menorah, or left-
over holiday turkey, consider
gathering your family and friends
for a Kwanzaa celebration and
goal-setting for the new year, not
just because it's fun; it might very
well produce some interesting
dialogue with your loved ones.
If you are interested in learn-
ing more about how to celebrate
Kwanzaa, call Raven at 491-8883,

CHEAPER Continued from 1A
ward at Northwestern Memorial
Hospital.
What I liked the most about
the second "Dozen," however,
was another performance, the
one by Alyson Stoner as daughter
Sarah. As a girl poised on the first
scary steps of adolescence, she
finds the kind of vulnerability and
shy hope that Reese Witherspoon
projected in "The Man in the
Moon" (1991), which contains a
first kiss so sweet you remember
it 15 years later.
In Sarah's case, romance finds
her after her parents assemble
the Fabulous Baker Boys and
Girls for one last summer at a
rented lake cottage. Kids are
growing up fast. The daughters
played by Hilary Duff and Piper
Perabo have already flown the
coop, college is looming for oth-
ers, and the parents want to
assemble the whole brood.
Since their earlier summer at
the ramshackle beach rental on
Lake Winnetka, Dad Baker's
high school rival, Jimmy
Murtaugh (Eugene Levy), has
erected his own gargantuan fami-
ly home, The Boulders, directly
across the waters. He's made a
lot more money than Tom Baker,
whose job as a college football
coach evaporates in some vague
dialogue. The two fathers resume
their lifelong rivalry, and
Murtaugh shows off at a fancy
Fourth of July clambake at the
lake club, where the fireworks go
off prematurely and destroy
everything in sight. It is a rule of
the cinema that all fireworks
always go off prematurely except
those used in sex scenes, and
sometimes then too.
Countering these predictabili-

antics of the

Tom has
secretly
unleashed on
the unsus-
pecting
Jimmy
Murtaugh, in
"Cheaper by
the Dozen 2."

ties is the wonderful little sub-
plot. For Sarah Baker and Eliot ,
Murtaugh (Taylor Lautner), it's
first love at first sight. This leads
Sarah to experiment with make-
up, because like all girls her age
she is convinced she is an ugly
duckling. God, 13 can be horri-
ble. I remember as a high school
freshman, standing around at the
Tigers' Den teenage hangout in
Urbana, Ill., cupping my hand to
my mouth and checking to see if
I had bad breath. At any given
moment there would be half a
dozen other kids also sniffing in
dread and suspicion, all of us
chewing Doublemint like crazy. If
some girl had told us she-didn't
dance with boys who chewed
gum, we would have gone home
and wept ourselves to sleep.
Anyway, "Dozen 2" remem-


bers that kind of suffering, and
the way kids are super-sensitive.
Any teasing, however slight, how-
ever kind, however well-meaning,
comes as a crushing blow. Mom
Baker (Hunt) sees what's hap-
pening, calls Sarah "sweetheart"
and sympathizes, but what's espe-
cially touching is when Saiah's
older sister Lorraine (Hilary
Duff) takes her upstairs and
expertly applies the right style of
makeup for a girl that age -
which means, in effect, that when
Sarah tremulously exposes her-
self to the family view, she looks
absolutely lovely and you really
can't notice much makeup at all. I
personally couldn't see any, but
then I hardly notice makeup
unless we're talking Tommy Lee
Jones as Two-Face in "Batman
Forever."


Speaking of makeup, Jimmy
Murtaugh's new wife of six
months' standing is Sarina,
played by Carmen Electra, and
the movie surprises us by making
her nice. She's sexy, yes, but she
really cares for her eight new
stepkids, intervenes with her
husband's monstrous ego and
passes the acid test, which is that
Bonnie Hunt's character accepts
her as (provisionally) human.
The movie is otherwise about
what you'd expect. As family
movies go, it skews younger than
the better "Rumor Has It" and
"The Family Stone." It's a lot bet-
ter than "Yours, Mine and Ours,"
which has inexplicably grossed
more than $45 million, all of
which could have been more use-
fully dropped into Santa's little
red bucket outside the theater.

"Blue and Gray Unite:
Lincoln, Davis, and the Civil
War," an exhibit featuring a
unique document signed by both
Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson
Davis, is at the Amelia Island
Museum of History through

On loan from Gil Colgate, the
letter documents an important
moment in Civil War history -
the guarantee of safe passage
across enemy lines in order to
sell cotton, the sale of which
would benefit war orphans. The
letter effectively called a tempo-
rary halt to the conflict. Other
interesting items include a
Lincoln campaign button, a post-
assassination newspaper and a
slave bill-of-sale.
