Beginning Monday, the Main

extra hour to handle their county
business," Miller said in a press
release. "At the former office on
14th Street in Fernandina Beach,
the county opened at 9 a.m. But at
our new location in Yulee we are
able to accommodate taxpayers
as early as 8 a.m."
Extended hours at the down-

not possible unless the judiciary
makes a change in hours of oper-

A 23-year-old Hilliard woman
died on her birthday Wednesday in
a head-on collision involving a semi
tractor-trailer truck and passenger
vehicle on US 1.
Theresa Michelle Pike died at
the scene of the crash, 1.3 miles
south of Dyal Road.
The wreck spilled about 100 gal-
lons of diesel fuel into a ditch and
closed both southbound lanes of
the highway for several hours
Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Bill
Leeper, who was at the scene along
with several other troopers, Nassau
County Sheriff's Office deputies
and fire and rescue personnel, said
the crash occurred shortly before
According to Leeper, a dump
truck driven by Matthew
McCollum, 37, of Hilliard, was trav-
. eling in the left northbound lane
of US 1 and was slowing down to
make a left turn.
A 2002 Honda passenger car
driven by Pike was in the same lane
and approaching the rear of the
dump truck. The driver swerved
to the right to go around the truck,
lost control and pulled back to the
left, then crossed a grass median
into the southbound lane and
crashed into the tractor-trailer rig.
That 1996 Freightliner semi
tractor-trailer, owned by Fleet
Global Services of Orlando, was
being driven by Anthony Anderson,
35, of Smyrna, Ga.
Pike was ejected and died at the
scene, said Leeper. The driver of
the truck was not injured. He was
wearing a seatbelt.
The Honda was a total loss, as
was the Freightliner truck body.
LIL SPINKS/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
The driver of this Freightliner tractor-trailer rig was not injured in a head-on collision Wednesday
that killed a 23-year-old Hilliard woman.
The trailer was still intact
Since the crash site covered
both southbound lanes, US 1 was
closed to all vehicular traffic
between Dyal Road and Old Dixie
Highway for about 4 1/2 hours.

VIEWPOINT/JoAN BEAN GILBERT/FERNANDINA BEACH
10 resolutions to make Nassau County be,
and everybody makes
resolutions to do better,
right? I feel sure the
made any resolutions since they
got elected, so I'm here to point
the way to a better future for our
1. Work on your credibility.
Example: You announce
vacancies on various county
boards in local newspapers to
find "new blood." You had 18
applicants, all extremely qualified
and willing for the planning and
zoning board seat. It seems
doubtful they were ever consid-
ered. Jim Higginbotham, District
1 commissioner, appointed John
Stack, who already served eight
years on the board. Don't say one
thing and then do something
else. Your credibility took a nose-
2. Be upfront with the public
about business decisions.
Example: Don't be sneaky. If
you are going to give salary rais-
es, they should be listed as a line
item in the budget, so the public
knows what's going on. The
$20,000 raises each for (County
Administrator) Mike Mahaney
and (County Attorney) Mike
Mullin were passed two weeks
AFTER the budget was approved.
And not even a cost of living
increasee for regular employees.
And your credibility is falling like
3. If it's a wetland, leave it
Don't dredge it, don't fill it,
don't mitigate it; don't swap it for
some other property. Most of
Crane Island is wetlands. You
need to consider very carefully
the future of that island. Plans are
to dredge out the center of the
island to make a marina. You
know that's wrong. Remember:
It's not nice to fool Mother
Nature. Critters need a place to
4. Establish a moratorium
on anything that requires a vari-
ance or a zoning change.
I suggest a year or two so you
can set rules and ordinances that
everybody can interpret the same
way. Wait for the results of your
traffic study. Then you can decide
what impact fees are necessary to
cover the costs of providing utili-
ties, roads, schools, etc.
5. Lower our taxes.
All the new development is
bringing in more revenue. You
need to lower our tax rate. You
can tax small business right out
of business, and then we all lose.
Think of our historic downtown
as the goose. So don't kill the
goose that's still laying golden
eggs. The new 5-cent-per-gallon
gas tax you just passed is posi-
tively immoral. It's legal, I guess,
but it's immoral.
6. Pass a tough tree protec-
Make the fines for cutting
down trees so high that you get
the developers' attention. Trees
aren't just a pretty face. They
help prevent flooding and ero-
7. Establish a strong county-
wide recycling program.
Set up incentives to get partic-
ipation. It's an inconvenience for
people who don't realize how
important it is. Give people credit
on their garbage bills if they recy-
cle. Paying out cash for recycling
is still cheaper than building a
new landfill. As my Daddy used
to say, there's more than one way
to skin a cat.
8. Be fair in dealing with
employees and others.
Example: How can you give
two administrators $20,000 raises
and delay a cost of living adjust-
ment to your regular employees?
How can you deny the school
board representative on the plan-
ning and zoning board the right
to vote? The state has mandated
him to be there, so he sure
should be able to vote.
9. Consider service roads as
a solution to ALA traffic. I think it
would be cheaper and look a lot
10. Have a plan to refer to
before you deal with individual
Example: Man wants to get
road paved in Yulee. You vote in
his favor. I;aler 1 i tu d her's 400
miles of dirl roads in Yulee. Now
you've got 390) pip n;d( at you.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Holiday library hours
As many people I was out and about running last-
minute errands before Christmas. In doing so I noticed
that several chain stores had signs declaring they
would be open on Christmas day. Then I thought to
myself how very sad this was. By staying open on
Christmas day the stores may make a few extra dol-
lars before the end of the year. But some employees
will have to work rather than being home with their
families for the holiday.

'I like your hair,

I work in an office full of women.
Now, before you read any further, let me
assure you I am not a chauvinist pig.
It just struck.me as odd the other day
when I realized I spend eight hours a day in a
cubicle as the only male in a small office sur-
rounded by five'females.
What effect has this had on my behavior? Has
this changed me? Am I the same man now as I
was before I began manning this desk in the
midst of so much estrogen?

have even called in sick,
being that the game didn't end until 1 a.m.
There are things I catch myself doing in the
female office that I would never even think about
in the all-male office.
SI haven't once worn the same pair of socks two
days in a row. I've shared recipes. I've bought
Hallmark cards for no other reason than to thank
someone for "being a friend." I actually delete
inappropriate cartoons sent to my e-mail. (In fact,
I experience a slight panic every time this hap-
pens, as if my mother is about to catch me look-
ing at Playboy.) I say "darn" and "shoot," walk
outside to pass gas and take care to use napkins.
Last week, I even made a hair appointment for
a co-worker. Not only that, I actually recommend-
ed the hairdresser.
Now before any of you get the impression I'm
sitting here cross-legged, with one foot tucked
under the opposite calf, I'll admit these are all
minor things which, in all actuality, are positive,

No, whether in the male office or female

S since the start of the New Year is only a few
hours away, most of us recognize this is the
time we usually set aside for making annual
resolutions; you know, those lofty goals that
we feel we should try to reach like giving up smok-
ing, losing weight or getting our basic finances in bet-
ter order. Let's spend a moment looking at one
aspect of our county's financial picture.
In reviewing my columns for 2005, I came across
the one for Feb. 4th ("Salaries more symptom than
cause"), which dealt with county school board
salaries over $50,000 as well as similar salaries for
our county fire and rescue personnel. I noted that
the average salary (in 2004) for a county firefighter
was $42,869, while the average rescue officer earned
$49,632. But when you added in overtime benefits,
the averages jumped to $54,416 for firefighters, and
$62,292 for rescue personnel. In fact, there were 10
fire/rescue employees who earned over $70,000,
and that was in 2004. The overall averages were
quite impressive for a small rural county like
Nassau: 68 percent of firefighters and 66 percent of
rescue personnel earned more than $50,000 in the
last fiscal year.
This year, the Sept. 21 edition of the News-Leader
carried the headline, "Firefighter paid $104,000 after
overtime," which described a Nassau County fire
captain, and the story went on to cover a Lieutenant
who had a base salary of $50,000, but who earned
more than $90,000 due to overtime and reimbursed
sick leave. Before I go any further, let me make one
point perfectly clear: these salaries are all legal and
within the union contract that exists between the
firefighters and the county. This isn't a question of
anyone doing something illegal, it's more a question
of a group of people, the Board of County
Commissioners, not acting prudently or responsibly.
And it's not getting better.
Our county has a policy where it will "buy back"
unused vacation, holiday and sick days from certain
employees. In its simplest terms, if you are owed
two weeks vacation for the year, but you choose not
to use them, you can carry them over to the next
year, or you can "sell them" back to the county
(since you didn't use them). Such a deal! Think
those days don't add up? Think again. This month a
single county employee received checks totaling
The Amelia Island Association (AIA) is an
association of homeowner associations, rep-
resenting 35 associations on Amelia Island
that include about 25 percent of all home-
owners on the island. AIA members have chosen to
focus on Amelia Island (city and county) issues, rec-
ognizing Amelia Island represents about one-third of
the county population, about two-thirds of county
property values and taxes and has unique local issues
as a barrier island. AIA also encourages creation of
similar organizations in other Nassau County dis-
tricts to provide specific knowledge of local issues
and support for local solutions. The East Nassau
Homeowners Council is a similar organization for
homeowner associations on the west side of the
Each AIA member homeowner association board
appoints a volunteer representative and each repre-
sentative participates on at least one AIA committee.
The representatives meet quarterly and stay in
touch through an e-mail network, which provides a
notification system for members as issues arise. The
committees do research and homework on issues
proposed by members and draft position papers are
developed. For clarity of communications each draft
position paper can be no longer than one, two-sided,
piece of paper. Each position paper includes a state-
ment of the problem, the proposed corrective
actions, and supporting reasons for the actions pro-
posed. All representatives discuss the draft posi-
tions to reach a consensus before voting to approve
or not. Approved AIA positions are then forwarded
to homeowner associations boards for confirmation.
of each representative's vote.
An AIA position paper is used to provide a voice
for homeowners on that issue. The position is com-
municated to appropriate city, county, state, and/or
federal government agencies that have the authority
to make decisions affecting homeowners on that
particular issue. While frequently positions have
unanimous support, if there were any negative votes
that is noted on the position paper.
AIA believes solutions to local issues can be
achieved through local citizen involvement and
teamwork within the community. AIA has initiated,
and leads, two Amelia Island councils; one focuses
on conservation, recreation and history and one
focuses more on financial-related issues of concern

Mike Boyle Our county administrator,
Mike Mahaney, gets a "pass"
on this one because, as he is
WAIT A quick to point out, he was not
MINUTE here when the last fire contract
was hammered out. He has
been quoted as saying that maybe there ought to be
a "use or lose" clause in the contract when it is rene-
gotiated in a few years. Strike the word "maybe,"
Mike. Of course there should be a "use or lose
clause" in public employees' contracts. What you
have now is a system that gives some employees a
year-end "bonus" of nearly 20 percent, and for a
cash-strapped county like Nassau, that's insane.
I can already anticipate the response from those
who believe I am being unfair to our fire/rescue
department: "The buy-back program keeps more
personnel on duty in a department that's under-
staffed." "If an employee takes leave, we will have to
pay overtime to have someone fill that spot." "The
buy-back rates for fire union employees are higher
because the union gets more hours of leave each
year than non-union employees." And, according to
a newspaper report, "the union is awarded 12 holi-
days a year." I knew they had a sweet deal, but I was
sure there were only 10 legal holidays for anyone.
What I find exasperating about this entire matter
is the county can't get a handle on the fire/rescue
"overtime problem," and can't find the money to pay
for the fire/rescue overtime hours. But it somehow
can find the $185,000 to pay for the fire/rescue
"vacation days" it has to buy back at the end of the
year. And those dollars are not in the budget. Why
not allocate that same amount on two or three full-
time firefighters for the entire year, and have the
current employees take their vacations when they

to taxpayers. Both of these councils include city,
county and state representatives, and hence provide
a forum to discuss issues and position papers. AIA
members also participate on three county commit-
tees: the Traffic Safety Committee, Solid Waste
Task Force, and the County Clerk's Citizen
Committee on Financial Policy. Currently, on two
environmental issues, AIA is working in partnership
with the East Nassau Homeowners Council and the
Sierra Club. Concerned Friends of Fernandina is
also one of the 35 AIA association members.
Over the initial three years of existence AIA has
had a good success rate (80 percent have been
implemented) on its positions.
Financial AIA Position Successes:
1. Supported opposition to a takeover of water
utility services by non-local government authorities
on the south end of Amelia Island, allowing local
rate control to be maintained (2003).
2. Supported opposition to a very significant elec-
tric rate increase for Amelia Island that was limited.;
by the regulating agency to one half the company's
rate request (2004).
3. Identified a Nassau County financial disaster in
August 2004 and issued a report calling for "Sound
Financial Management" actions. This was done with
a council that includes the Amelia Island Plantation
and local government representatives. Significant
changes have been made by the county in 2005 to
improve the financial management of the county.
Financial policies to prevent a recurrence of the
financial problems are being developed by the coun-
ty, with an opportunity for AIA review.
4. Supported new home impact fees for schools,
to help new growth pay for itself. Approved by the
county in 2005.
5. Requested the county stop taking in out-of-
county trash at rates less than those residents pay to
So, am I upset with Mike Mahaney on this issue?
No, not on this issue. As I explained earlier, back in
2004 he was just coming onboard when the firefight-
er's contract was being negotiated by the county's
management team. But Mike, that card can only be
played once, so we all expect a better result the next
That brings us to the firefighters, their union and
their officers. And yes, I think they have been ham-
mering the county taxpayers for quite some time,
playing the system for every dollar they can get For
instance, what would keep a firefighter from taking
a day off here so a friend gets overtime to cover for
you, and then reversing the plan so you can cover
for him. All very legal, all very profitable, and all
very costly to the taxpayers.
But just as I'm beginning to get angry, I think to
myself, 'The firefighters are only doing what they've
been told they can do. So who's really at fault here?
The people who are doing it, or the ones who gave
them permission to do it?"
And that thought brings us back to that Sept. 21
edition of the News-Leader with the headline,
"Firefighter paid $104,000 after overtime." The
headline right below it was, "County OKs new fire-
rescue pact." In that article we learned that contract
negotiations had ended nearly a year ago, and the
new contract will expire in 2007.
We also learned that most of the negotiating was
done through County Attorney Mike Mullin, and
when county commission Chair Ansley Acree asked
Mullin if the commissioners gave any guidance dur-
ing those negotiations, Mullin replied, "Not that I
And since we're on the subject of the wise use of
taxpayer dollars, did you see the front-page article
in Wednesday's edition of the News-Leader involving
the commission's recent decision to spend $25,000
to fix its "PR problem?" Let me see if I've got this
straight; they are going to spend thousands of our
dollars to try to convince taxpayers they are using
our taxes efficiently. Maybe it's just me, but doesn't

My wife once gave me a unique wooden
mantle clock. The face of this clock
unlatches and swings open to reveal a
hidden compartment with three small
drawers. Its design lends itself to the idea that these
three hidden drawersare are a perfect place to conceal
valuables, And that's exactly what I have placed
there. I have a cool pocketknife my father gave me,
along with my high school class ring. I have some
neat pewter pocket crosses, and a collection of lapel
pins and a pin of a frog playing a banjo the first
birthday gift my son ever gave me when he was five
Just the other day I thought of all my hidden
valuables as I dusted off my clock. As I was dusting
however, I realized that the things of greatest value
were not hidden inside the clock but rather hidden

Enjoying music of the angels
I heard harp music the other
day, and did a quick systems
check to see if I were still
here. Not only was I still in

that she is our very own resident

SIDEBAR myself loudly
"This is my favorite home!" at
each front door. Hats off the
B&B association, as well as the
B&B's themselves, for all of their
hard work. And let's not forget
the many volunteers whose
Christmas spirit made the occa-
sion even more festive.
And hats off to whoever had
the bright idea of asking Lovejoy
and her harp to be a part of this
wondrous weekend. How
Patricia got to be a harpist is an
interesting story all by itself. She
comes from a musical family; she'
grew up amid janm sessions at
home and her parent's club dates
out in town.
While her parents chose the
guitar, Patricia's life-long instru-
ment has been the piano. Her
husband Michael has a role that
he shares with many of us; he is
an appreciative audience.
Through the years, he has acted
as both sounding board and criti-
cal ear as Patricia's playing has
grown and matured. One of their
two children has continued the
musical tradition, thanks to an
early introduction to fine music.
She told me this wonderful story
about her young son toddling
around the house humming
Harps did not become part of
Patricia's life until the mid-1990s,
when she met a harp maker at an
arts and crafts fair in St
Augustine. She was intrigued by
his craft, and fell in love *with the
instrument on the spot. As she
began her transition from piano
to harp, she discovered that her
great-grandfather had been a fid-
dler in Ireland; somehow, all of
those strings connected her to
him, and she knew that she was
doing the right thing.
After vacationing in this area
for years, the Lovejoys finally
moved here three years ago
from Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and
now Patricia concentrates on her
role as a free-lance harpist. She's
doing well; she's performed all
over the island, including bank
openings and other places you
wouldn't expect to hear her
strumming. "No wedding is com-
plete without harp music," she
adds with a twinkle in her eye.
One of the places you would-
Patricia Lovejoy and her
n't expect to find Patricia and her
harpis Baptist Medical Center
Nassau. Her soothing music
wafts through the hospital's pub-
lic areas for an hour each week.
It's a bit of a challenge, Patricia
admits, to find a spot that's both
out of the way and within
earshot. She's found a little nook
nestled between a nurses' station
and a patient wing, as well as a
corner near the emergency
room. If ever anyone needed
soothing music, I'd bet it would
be those folks in the ER!
She rounds out her busy day
by giving private lessons, which
she conducts in her home. She's
quick to point out that you don't
have to go out and buy a harp
before you sign up for lessons -
you can use one of hers until you
know a little more about the
instrument. After talking to her, I
assure you that there's more to
this instrument than its pretty
gold frame and a few strings.

GREGORY SMITH, M.D.
Q, After an injury, I
received an electricity
treatment on my knee called
"stim." Just what is that and
how does it work?
A The use of electrical
stimulation in medicine
has been around for cen-
turies. Largus, a Roman
physician, first described the
use of electric eels in the
treatment of gout and
headaches. The animal was
placed in a container of
water, and then the injured
or painful body part was
placed down into the contain-
er as well. The eel was irritat-
ed and then emitted its jolt of
electricity and, in many
cases, relieved the patient's
stimulation has also
been used to help
promote soft tissue,
healing by increasing
local blood flow and
Ben Franklin was known
to treat paralytics and epilep-
tics with an electric genera-
tor. In the late 1700s, it was
noted by Alessandro Volta
and Luigi Galvani that elec-
tricity could be used to cause
muscles to contract.
In the field of sports medi-
cine, the primary uses of
electrical stimulation are to
attempt to modify pain
through the stimulation of
sensory nerves, to stimulate
and thusstrengthen; mr ,
cles, and finally to attempt to
boost healing of soft tissue
TENS units (transcuta-
neous electric nerve stimula-
tor) are commonly used to
help relieve pain. This is a
.device that basically looks
like a small radio with electri-
cal wires coming out of it,
which are attached to rub-
bery pads. The pads are
placed on the area of pain,
the TENS unit is turned on
and a small electrical shock
is delivered. This sounds
much worse than it really is
because the feeling is really
more like a tingling or
buzzing on the skin. These
units are most commonly
used for back and neck pain,
and in chronic pain situa-
SElectrical stimulation is
also used for rehabilitation of
the muscle. There is some
belief that such stimulation
can enhance the strength of
normal muscle but this has -
not been supported by unbi-
ased scientific research.
Muscles that have been
injured, however, can benefit
from electrical stimulation.
Such injuries might
include muscle tearing, sur-
gery or prolonged immobi-
lization or casting. The use of
muscle stimulation is done in
conjunction with an active
exercise or rehabilitative pro-
gram. Simply wearing the
stimulator alone will not
achieve the desired result.
Electrical stimulation has
also been used to help pro-
mote soft tissue healing by
increasing local blood flow
and reducing swelling.
Most commonly the use
of electrical stimulation is
done under the care of a
physician directed physical
therapy program. However,
take-home units may be
available by prescription.

Snail kites will dazzle you. Mangrove cuckoos
will amuse you, and black-whiskered vireos will
lure you in when the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission unveils the long-await-
ed South Florida Section of the Great Florida
Birding Trail. With completion of the 2,000-mile
trail, birdwatchers will be able to glimpse some of
Florida's remarkable avian attractions at 446 pre-
mier sites throughout the state. The unveiling will
take place Jan. 14 at a dedication at Corkscrew
Swamp Sanctuary in Naples.
The trail is a conservation tool, fueled by the
rapidly expanding popularity of bird-watching.
FWC selected the sites based on the quality of
bird-watching experiences they offer and their
resilience. The agency compiled and published
trail guides representing four geographic regions.
The south leg is.the fourth and final section of
the birding trail and has 116 sites. It winds
through 12 counties: Broward, Charlotte, Collier,
De Soto, Glades, Hendry, Lee, Martin, Miami-
Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach and Sarasota. The
East Florida portion debuted in 2000, followed by
West Florida and the Panhandle.
South Florida offers birdwatchers a magnifi-
cent show. Its coastlines act as migration super-
highways for many birds, and, of course, the
expansive Everglades shelter an abundance of
birds, most notably Florida's signature herons and
egrets. Grants from the Federal Highway
Administration, the state Department of
Transportation and the Wildlife Foundation of
Florida have helped fund the trail.
Completion of this final section is a conserva-
tion coup, harnessing the might of Florida tourism
to benefit delicate wild lands.
Grand Bahama Island's premier resort, marina
and residential community will host its first
Wahoo Classic Tournament Jan. 4 -7 in the
Atlantic Ocean 69 miles from Fort Lauderdale.
The entry cost for each boat is $2,100 and a
portion of the money raised after expenses will be
donated to the "A Child is Missing" foundation.
The entry cost includes tickets to all of the
nightly events for the four anglers and additional
tickets can be purchased for $400.
The tournament will begin at 7 a.m. each
morning and boats will depart from the Old
Bahama Bay marina. Participants will be allowed
to drop their fishing lines by 7:30 a.m. and all
boats are to return to Old Bahama Bay by 4:30
p.m. There are no boundaries to where competi-
tors can fish during the tournament.

Wayne Harrell of Chester has been braz-

themed symbols and art for almost four
decades. But his recent work on a Jewish
menorah holds a special place in his heart
this holiday season.
Harrell made his first menorah a few
months ago for the mother of Debra
McDonald, one of his neighbors in Chester.
McDonald's mother Muriel Lyman was ill
and living in Maryland. Just as Harrell was
finishing the piece in October, he learned
that Lyman had passed away.
"I worked on the first menorah for five
days, then called Debra so I could show it to
her," Harrell said. "I found out her mother
passed away and they were already making
funeral arrangements. After that it became

Lots of 'movies to admire in 2005'
How in the world
can anyone think it
was a bad year for the
movies when so many
were wonderful, a few
were great, a handful
were inspiring and
there were scenes so
risky you feared the
tightrope might break?
If none of the year's 10
best had been made, I
could name another 10
and no one would won-
der at the choices.
There were a lot of
movies to admire in
Theyear's10 best films
4. "Junebug." At last, a movie about
ordinary people. Or put it this way: Phil
Morrison's "Junebug" was the best non-
geopolitical film of

unless we all die
first. The movie
has been called
"liberal," but it is
gesting that all
of the players in
the oil game
are corrupt and
compromised, and in
some bleak sense must be, in order to
defend their interests and ours.
The story involves oil, money and poli-
tics in America, the Middle East and China.
The CIA is on both sides of one situation,
China may be snatching oil away from us in
order to sell it back, and no one in this
movie understands the big picture because
there isn't one, just a series of tactical skir-
mishes. "Syriana" argues that in the short
run, every society must struggle for oil, and
in the long run it will be gone.
3. "Munich." Steven Spielberg's film
may be the bravest of the year, and it plays
like a flowing together of the currents in
ing an ethnic and
that floats atop a
land and oil.
Working from a
begins with the
Israeli athletes at
the Munich Olympiad of 1972, and follows a
secret assassination team as it attempts to
track down the 11 primary killers. Nine
eventually die, but not before the Israeli
(Eric Bana) who leads the team loses his
moral certainty and nearly his sanity, and
not before the film sees revenge as a
process that may have harmed Israel more
than its targets.
The film is not critical of Israel, as some
believe, but a more general mourning for
the loss of idealism in a region marching
steadily toward terrorism and anarchy. In
defending itself, can Israel afford to com-
promise its standards or afford not to?
Spielberg doesn't have the answer. He has
the courage to suggest that some of Israel's
post-Munich policies have not made it a bet-
Ster or safer place. '
6. "Me and You and Everyone We
Know." The previous films have waded
fearlessly into troubled waters. Miranda
July's walks on them. It's a comedy about
falling in love with someone who speaks
your rare emotional language of playfulness
and daring, of
playful mind s
games and bold
and stars. In her
first film, she

darn nice. Can you
imagine a scene involving teenage sexual
experimentation that is sweet and innocent
and not shocking at all, because it's not,
about sex but about what funny and lovable
creatures we humans can be? And when
have you seen a woman seduce a man not
with sex but with unbridled and passionate
7. "Nine Lives." Rodrigo Garcia's film
started as a 3.5-star movie and worked its
way onto this list
because I found
it more and
more. It involves
nine stories told
in a total of nine
shots. It is not a
each scene is
told in one
they will sense the tangible passage of real
time. The best story involves Robin Wright
Penn and Jason Isaacs as two former lovers,
now married to others, she pregnant, who
meet by chance in a supermarket and dur-
ing a casual conversation realize that
although their lives are content, they made
the mistakes of their lifetimes by not mar-
rying each other. Stating this so boldly, I
miss the subtle sympathy that Garcia has
for all of his characters, who are permitted
those tender moments of truth by which
we learn what a tease life is so slow to
teach us how to live it, so quick to end.
8. "King Kong." A stupendous cliff-
hanger, a glorious adventure, a shameless
celebration of every single resource of the
blockbuster, told in a film of visual beauty
and surprising emotional impact. Of course
this will be the most popular film of the
year, and nothing wrong with that: If
movies like "King Kong" didn't delight us
with the magic of the cinema, we'd never
start going in the first place.

of the 1933 classic

From their relationship flows the emotional

9. "Yes." An elegant Irish-American
woman, living with a rich and distant
British politician, makes eye contact with a
waiter. Neither turns away. Their sex is
eager and makes them laugh. They are not
young, they are grateful because of long
experience with what can go wrong. He

casual physical perfection is natural to her,
disturbing to him. They realize they cannot
live together successfully in either of their
cultures. A third place is required. Their
story is told in counterpoint with the bold
asides of a cleaner (Shirley Henderson),
who notes that for all their passion they
shed the same strands of hair and flakes of
skin and tiny germs as the rest of us, and
must be cleaned up after. Bold, erotic, politi-
cal, and like no other film I have ever seen.
10. "Millions." The best family film of
the year is by the unlikely team of director
Danny Boyle ('Trainspotting') and writer
Frank Cottrell Boyce ("Hilary and Jackie,"
"24 Hour Party People"). Nine-year-old
Anthony Cunningham and his 7-year-old
brother, Damian (Lewis McGibbon and
Alex Etel), find a bag containing loot that
bounced off a train and is currently stuffed

ue their charity
toward investing in property.
Oh, and Damian gets advice from saints,
real ones. St. Francis of Assisi, his favorite,
provides advice that Anthony is sure will
get them into trouble. Despite how it
sounds, this isn't a "cute little film." The
director makes hard-boiled movies, the
writer has worked at the cutting edge, and
this is what a family film would look like if it
were made with the intelligence of adults.
"Best of Youth" by Marco Tullio
Giordana, the story of two Italian brothers
and their lives from 1963 to 2000, as they
intersect with politics and history: the hip-
pie period, the disastrous flood in Florence,
the Red Brigades, kidnapping, hard times
and layoffs, and finally a certain peace.
"Broken Flowers" by Jim Jarmusch.
Another inward, intriguing performance
from Bill Murray, as a millionaire who lives
in isolation and loneliness until he learns
he might once have fathered a child, and
visits the possible mothers (Sharon Stone,
Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Tilda
Swinton and Julie Delpy).
"Downfall" by Oliver Hirschbiegel. We
do not recognize Bruno Ganz, hunched
over, shrunken, his left hand fluttering
behind his back like a trapped bird. This is
Adolf Hitler in his final days in the bunker
beneath Berlin, where after his war was lost
he waged it in fantasy. Pounding on maps,
screaming ultimatums, he moved troops
that no longer existed and issued orders to
commanders who were dead. A chilling
portrait of evil and madness.
"Duane Hopwood" by Matt Mulhern. A
career-transforming performance by David
Schwimmer, as an Atlantic City pit boss
who loves his wife and children, and is los-
ing everything because of alcoholism. Not
the sensational drunk scenes of melodra-
ma, but the daily punishment of the dis-
ease: Sometimes he drinks way too much.
Sometimes he drinks too much. Sometimes
he drinks almost too much. Sometimes he
doesn't drink enough. Those are the only
four sometimes for an alcoholic.
"Good Night, and Good Luck" by
George Clooney. David Strathairn stars as
Edward R Murrow, who with his CBS
News colleagues helped to bring about the
downfall of the demagogue Sen. Joseph
McCarthy. McCarthy (shown in archival
footage) is a liar and a bully, surrounded by
yes-men, recklessly calling his opponents
traitors; he destroys others, and then is
destroyed by the truth.
"Match Point" by Woody Allen. A return
to greatness for Allen, not with a "Woody
Allen picture" but with a thriller based on
stomach-churning guilt Jonathan Rhys-
Meyers is a poor, ambitious tennis pro who
marries well (to rich girl Emily Mortimer)
while dallying with Scarlett Johansson, the
former fiancee of his brother-in-law. Can he
solve his problems with a perfect murder?
"North Country" by Niki Caro. Another
powerful performance by Charlize Theron,
as a working mother who becomes a miner
on the Minnesota iron range and becomes
the target of her male fellow union mem-
bers. Based on the true story of the woman
who inspired the first class-action lawsuit
on sexual harassment. With great support-
ing work by Frances McDormand.
"The New World" by Terrence Malick. A
-visionary story ofPocahontas (Q'Orianka
:Kilcher),that places her, John Smith (Colin
-Farrell) _nd'John'Rolfe (Christian Bale) in
an unspoiled sylvan forest where the
Indians live in harmony with the land, and
the English blunder in with guns and igno-
rance. Pocahontas falls in love with Smith,
and her transformation leads to an unimag-
inable personal journey.
"The Three Burials of Melquiades
Estrada," directed by and starring Tommy
Lee Jones (best actor, Cannes 2005). He
plays a ranch hand whose Mexican friend is
killed by a border patrolman (Barry
Pepper). He forces the younger man to join
him on a long journey with the body to the
friend's birthplace, in a film that could have
been directed by John Huston and starred
"Pride & Prejudice" by Joe Wright.
Keira Knightley is the first among equals in
a gifted cast that captures all the charm and
romance of the Jane Austen novel. Set a lit-
tle earlier and closer to the land than most
Austen adaptations, so that the urgency of a
fortunate marriage is underlined, and the
characters seem less precious. Gloriously
"Grizzly Man," Werner Herzog's por-
trait of a man who loves bears unwisely and
too well. "Aliens of the Deep," James
Cameron's visual astonishment from the
ocean floor. "Enron: The Smartest Guys in
the Room," mercilessly explaining how
Enron fabricated the California energy cri-
sis. "Gunner Palace," about the daily lives
of American soldiers in Iraq. "March of the
Penguins," about the responsibilities of
parenthood. "Murderball," about the sport
of full-contact quadriplegic wheelchair
rugby (yes). "No Direction Home: Bob
Dylan," Martin Scorsese's look at the
singer's odyssey. 'Tell Them Who You
Are," Mark Wexler's portrait of his com-
plex and gifted father, the cinematographer
Haskell Wexler. 'Touch the Sound," about
the deaf percussionist Evelyn Glennie.
"The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill,"
about Mark Bittner, who knows San
Francisco's wild parrots by name.
BEST ANIMATED FILMS
"Wallace & Gromit The Curse of the
Were-Rabbit," one of the most delightful
films ever made. 'Tim Burton's Corpse
Bride," surprisingly cheerful under the cir-
cumstances. "Robots," with its future that
looks like Tupperware.
"Off the Map," Campbell Scott's film
with Joan Allen living in the New Mexico
desert with her depressed husband (Sam
Elliott) and imaginative daughter
(Valentina de Angelis). Gore Verbinski's
"The Weather Man," and Nicolas Cage bril-
liant again, as a man without a clue for his
own happiness. "Keane," Lodge Kerrigan's
portrait of a schizophrenic (Damian Lewis)
trying to hold himself together. "Duma,"
Carroll Ballard's magnificent story of a boy
and his cheetah. "The Woodsman," Nicole
Kassell's film starring Kevin Bacon as a
