A new Millenium'at Yulee High

Yulee High School students Robby Bunk and Chelsi Bedell set up a bake sale they organized to
help Brenda Commandeur raise funds to rehabilitate schools in Bonga, Ethiopia, below.


'We can do

something'

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News Leader
Yulee High School students
who heard about a Fernandina
Beach woman's efforts to repair
schools in Africa are taking action
to help.
Robby Bunk and Chelsi Bedell
spearheaded a bake sale fundrais-
er as part of a class project on U.N.
Millennium Development Goals.
Both Bedell and Bunk believe
"things aren't going to change
unless we do something." So they
enlisted help from their classmates
to spread the word with cookies,
brownies and cereal crispy bars.
The sale raised $450.
The United Nations and eight
"super power" nations set a target
date of 2015 to eradicate extreme
poverty, reduce child mortality,
slow the spread of HIV/AIDS and
malaria and address other global
health and human rights issues.
The students' language arts
teacher, Lena Watson, assigned
them the task of presenting the
eight goals, known as the
Millennium Development Goals,
in a public forum held at the school
on Dec. 18.
"You will be the generation to
eliminate extreme poverty," for-
mer Peace Corps volunteer Brenda
Commandeur told Watson's stu-
dents.
After hearing her describe the
uninhabitable conditions of
Ethiopian schools, the students,
led by Bedell and Bunk, decided to
join the fundraising effort for the
schools.
"We just want to see how good
we can do," Bunk said. "We just
want to do it so we can feel good
about it."
There has always been "a tug at

One made lapel pins of red and
white ribbon. Another wore and
promoted a handmade bracelet
from Uganda. And others made,
donated and sold baked goods.
The Yulee High School students
had already completed their
research projects on global issues,
hoping to earn good grades for
themselves.
The extra work was an effort
to help others by raising aware-

ness.
When teacher Lena Watson cre-
ated the assignment, Andrew
Castle thought, "This is going to be
a stupid project," he said. Instead,
it "influenced me to start doing
something."
What Castle and his fellow
classmates began doing was invest-
ing their personal time to help
champion and resolve the global
issues they researched.
The 90 students in Watson's lan-
guage arts classes researched the
United Nations' Millennium
Development Goals, or MDGs, cre-
ated in 2000. The goals, a blueprint
agreed to by all the world's coun-
tries and leading development insti-
tutions, address poverty, educa-
tion, health and environmental
issues and target 2015 as the year
to achieve each goal.
Students used three formats - a
pamphlet, a slide show and a visu-
al display - to present their findings
on the eight goals at a "Healing
Our World" public forum at the
school on Dec. 18.
The students said they want to
"impact Nassau County and see if
we can get something started."
"I wanted to do something to
help," Brittany McClellan said. She
made and distributed red and white
lapel pins to call attention to the
devastating effects of HIV/AIDS

Fran Wall tried to be careful.
"I don't order anything off the
Internet," the Fernandina Beach
resident and business owner said.
"... I shred everything all the time,
nothing goes in the trash. I thought
I was protected."
In spite of her precautions, Wall
learned she was a victim of identi-
ty theft when she received a cell
phone bill for $5,599.44. Her pre-
vious "normal" phone bill was
$79.46.


She contacted her cell phone
provider, Sprint, and had her phone
number changed, figuring some-
one had somehow used her num-
ber to make expensive calls to the
Dominican Republic. Wall still has
the phone, so she knew it hadn't
been stolen.
But the huge bills kept coming
- including calls to New York and
Canada.
It wasn't long before she
learned she owed Home Depot
$22,234 and had balances with sev-
eral other businesses where she
had never applied for credit.


"Someone had been living off
my credit," she said. "I've applied
for no credit for anything ... they
were just having a good time."
And it all started with a cell
phone she'd had in her possession
the entire time.
Police and Sprint representa-
tives believe Wall is a victim of
"phone hacking," where someone
- police think it was probably a cell
phone company employee -
accessed her cell phone security
code and used that, not her phone

Armed robbery at


fast-food eatery


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Nassau County detectives are
investigating the armed robbery
Sunday of the Burger King restau-
rant on South Eighth Street in
Fernandina Beach.
The armed suspect reportedly
shot at one of the restaurant
employees - but missed - and
shot at the store's surveillance
monitor before running out of the
store with an undisclosed amount
of money.
According to a press release
from the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, the suspect first accosted
an employee who was outside of
the restaurant about 10:28 p.m.
He forced the employee to open
the back door, then entered the
store, went into the office, took
money from a safe and asked for


the surveillance video.
When he was not able to
retrieve the video, he shot at the
surveillance monitor and left the
restaurant on foot.
While inside, the suspect
reportedly shot at an employee
who was trying to hide, but he did
not hit the person.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves is asking anyone who
has information regarding the rob-
bery to contact the sheriff's office
at 225-5174 or First Coast
Crimestoppers at 1-866-845-8477.
"(We have) some limited infor-
mation and (are) following up on
the leads regarding this incident,"
Seagraves said in a written state-
ment.
The suspect is described by
police only as an "armed black
male."

"I knew it was bad. I didn't know
it was this bad," David Phipps said
about the estimated number of peo-

Learning about the MDGs

"We have the science. We have

The students expressed disap-
pointment that the U.S. has con-
tributed just 0.2 percent of the
agreed upon 0.7 percent of each
nation's wealth to address the goals.
But they have confidence that
poverty, educational and health dis-

high school English teacher said
after viewing the students' displays.
"The kids are on top of things ...
I'm very impressed," she said.
Dennis Todd, a psychologist
with the Nassau County School
District, also visited the forum.
"This generation of kids is more
aware and involved outside of them-
selves than previous generations,"
Todd said.
The generation that grew up in
the 1960s and 1970s were "more
caught up in themselves and their
own fulfillment," he said.
Young people in the current gen-
eration demonstrate a motivation
to help others, Todd said. He
describes them as "more conser-
vative" than in the past. From
Todd's perspective, they "have bet-
ter values . . . and fewer psycho-
logical problems."
"I think the students have done
incredibly well," Watson said.
"They've shocked me, actually. I
wasn't sure how much they would
tune into this."

number, to place the calls.
That person also used it to
access Wall's personal informa-
tion, like her Social Security num-
ber, which they then used to
obtain credit in her name.
Fernandina Beach Police Capt.
Jim Coe said it is not uncommon
for people with access to the per-
sonal information of others - for
example, from the customer data-
base of a business - to sell it to
others, who then use it to set up
accounts in someone else's name.
Coe said such crimes are
extremely difficult to investigate
and prosecute.
An FBPD detective was
assigned to Wall's case, but Coe is
not optimistic about a happy res-
olution to what he called an
"inside job" of hacking her cell


phone account.
"Unfortunately, she's probably
got a long haul ahead of her," Coe
said of Wall's job now to re-estab-
lish her credit and clear her name
off the accounts. "... I would say
three to five years would be a min-
imum."
Wall has begun that task, but
was warned the process could be
lengthy. She continues to learn of
new ways her identity has been
violated.
Coe said unfortunately, some
kinds of identity theft - including
phone hacking - are difficult or
impossible to prevent, though he
said it appears Wall did take pre-
cautions.
"There are things you can do
to avoid becoming a victim," he
said. "But even that's not iron-
clad."

Economist: Tax vote to spur inequality


UKRLANDU - Fr lidas prop-
erty tax referendum, if passed this
month, will spur vast inequalities
among homeowners and surely be
challenged in court, says a
University of Central Florida econ-
omist.
That's the message from Sean
Snaith, director of the UCF Institute
for Economic Competitiveness, in
his latest quarterly state and region-
al forecast.
Snaith's report also provides a
comprehensive look at Florida and
12 metropolitan regions through
2010. Those areas include Daytona
Beach, Fort Myers, Gainesville,


ucala, Lakteland, ralmi Day-
Melbourne, Pensacola, Miami,
Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Tampa
Bay and Orlando.
In regards to the Jan. 29 refer-
endum, Snaith says the portability
of Save Our Homes would create a
privileged class of longtime home-
owners, similar to Dr. Seuss' Star-
bellied Sneetches - those quirky
yellow creatures that snub their
non-star-bellied counterparts. First-
time home buyers or people relo-
cating won't get the same cost-sav-
ing perk.
"Not only do newer residents
not get invited to frankfurter roasts,

decelerates from 6.6 percent in

To view Snaith's report, go to
http://www.bus.ucf.edu/hitec/.
Snaith is the director of the
UCF Institute for Economic
Competitiveness. He is a national
expert in economics, f, ...i i ;i.
market sizing and economic analy-
sis. He authors quarterly reports
about the economy. Snaith is also
a member of several national fore-
casting panels, including the
Western Blue Chip Economic
Forecast panel, the National
Association of Business Economics
Quarterly Outlook Survey Panel,
the Federal Reserve Bank of
Philadelphia's Survey of
Professional Forecasters,
Bloomberg U.S. Economic
Indicator Survey and USA Today
Economic Survey Panel. Blue Chip
recently named him the most accu-
rate forecaster for California in
2006.
The UCF Institute for Economic
Competitiveness' mission is to
expand public understanding of the
economy by convening business
leaders, scholars, policy makers,
civic groups and media to discuss
critical issues.


or picnics or parties or marshmal-
low toasts, they have to pay higher
taxes than their neighbor - forev-
er," Snaith said.
Snaith says property tax reform
has been a Sisyphean struggle for
state lawmakers, and one that
points to a larger problem of state
funding. Tax woes won't vanish
with a single vote, he says. And he
calls on the state to reexamine its
tax structure to tackle bigger
issues facing Florida's economy.
"Florida can no longer be tout-
ed as a cheap place to live or do
business and therefore we can no
longer govern on the cheap,"
Snaith said. "The state needs to
rethink the tax structure from top
to bottom, and all possible types of
tax reform must be considered,
including the dreaded income tax."
Other highlights of the report:
* Florida's housing sector has
gone from an eagle to an albatross.
And Snaith says the excess hous-
ing supply will not instantaneous-
ly be absorbed as a result of cutting
interest rates or freezing


adjustable-rate mortgages. Only
time will help.
* Housing starts hit their nadir
in 2008, but by 2010 housing starts
will return to the same levels that
they were at the start of the
decade.
* Unemployment rates are fore-
casted to rise through the first half
of 2008 and stabilize at a more sus-
tainable 4.2 percent through the
end of the 2010. The Orlando area
leads the state in employment
growth at average annual rates of
3 percent.
* Retail sales are expected to
contract in the first quarter of 2008,
exhibit moderate growth in the
second quarter and average 4.4
percent growth in the second half
of the year. Over the 2009-10 time
span, retail sales will grow at an
average pace of 5.7 percent.
* Gross State Product growth
slows to 4.3 percent in 2008 before
recovering to average 6 percent
growth in 2009-10.
* Payroll employment is fore-
casted to grow at 1.7 percent in

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2, 2008 BUSINESS News-Leader


Unfinished business:


ATopi

Even though 2007 is drawing
to a close, there are many local
issues that have received little
resolution.
Since resolutions are a big
part of new-year planning, let's
review the status of these prob-
lematic, open-ended issues. We'll
make it a Top-10 list for ease of
planning (not necessarily in order
of importance).
* 1. Forest of Death. It seems
the so-called "study" phase of
resolving the saltwater seepage
from the Egans Creek Greenway
is taking longer than anticipated.
State officials are apparently hav-
ing difficulty figuring out a way to
prevent salt water from traveling
under Jasmine Street into the for-
est south of it. You can identify
the area by the gray, dying trees.
* 2. Hoover Dam? Not only
have state officials waffled on a
cure for the saltwater seepage,
but they've also spent a ridiculous
amount of time and money resolv-
ing another shortsighted error.
They have spent between $1 mil-
lion and $2 million resolving ero-
sion caused by the free-flowing
waters of Egans Creek.
* As part of the Greenway
restoration, Egans Creek has
been allowed to flow freely under
Atlantic Avenue. A bulkhead orig-
inally constructed by state offi-
cials along the bank south of
Atlantic Avenue nearly fell down,
so they've come back with a
deluxe concrete barrier that
resembles Hoover Dam. Maybe
they didn't want to be criticized a
second time - for a second error
- so they went overboard with a
new, ridiculously stout bulkhead.
* 3. Fernandina Beach
Waterfront. Though there have
been many hours of efforts
already put into redoing the
waterfront area at the foot of
Centre Street, much work still
lies ahead. Current plans include
an expanded marina, walkways,
parks and commercial/residential

locations. It
can be some-
thing really
special.
* 4. A1A
Logjam. The
congestion
and spiraling
construction
along this piv-
otal corridor
is a pressing
issue.
Alternative
roads and
beautification
and widening
of A1A are all
possibilities.


The time to put these into action
is now.
* 5. Unrealistic Property
Assessments. Except for home-
owners protected by the home-
stead exemption, all others are
getting clobbered by excessive
property assessments. These
assessments determine how
much you are taxed. The over-
taxed entities include businesses,
investment properties, and com-
mercial locations.
A zealous property appraiser
is conjuring up taxable valuations
that, in the current market, are
nowhere near the prices for
which properties can sell. It is
killing local businesses and
investment properties here.
* 6. Local Taxes. Tax rates
here are coming down in a
refreshing move. Most of the
reduction is due to a state man-
date for local municipalities to cut
taxes. Even though this is occur-
ring, many people will not feel the
benefit. You see, as part of the tax
equation, the tax rate is multi-
plied by the assessed value of a
property to determine your taxes
due. With soaring assessments,
even lower tax rates will result in
little savings for local residents.


This will suffocate our local and
state economy if not addressed.
* 7. County Finances. While
there is still work to do, the coun-
ty has succeeded in improving its
financial status. There is still a
mountain of long-term debt that
has to be overcome, but with
Clerk John Crawford questioning
expenditures and financial guru
Ted Selby making the numbers
work, the county's situation has
improved.
* 8. County Landfill. The land-
fill's outlook has improved as a
sizable debt attached to the land-
fill has been lifted. Now, the next
step is to decide how to operate it
the most efficiently and with the
most longevity.
* 9. Congestion. Though it's
nothing compared to urban-
sprawl areas such as Atlanta, the
traffic congestion here has steadi-
ly worsened. It will truly be
noticed as tourists continue to
gravitate here, especially during
the summer.
* 10. Open/Green Space. It
seems that Fernandina Beach
officials have a lot of open space
in their possession, and want to
keep it that way. It took a hard-
fought debate to approve a water
slide for the empty, sand-spur-
filled lot at Main Beach. Some
city officials wanted to preserve
their "open/green space," while
others saw a mutual benefit in a
private/public venture.
The city currently sits on
some millions of dollars of vacant
properties, which generate no
taxes and provide little public
benefit (other than providing a
place to put a sign). Since when
did the city get into the real
estate business, anyhow?

Florida Department of Transportation contractors move the remaining piles of dirt and rocks
from Egans Creek Park in an effort to make final repairs to a retaining wall separating a resi-
dence on Atlantic Avenue from Egans Creek. The project was scheduled to be finished in
December. The wall was as the result of a botched FDOT project to create a saltwater marsh in
Egans Creek Greenway.


DR.DBSONANSES


QUESTION: My wife and I
love each other very
much, but we're going
through a time of apa-
thy. We just don't feel
close to each other. Is this
normal, and is there a
way to bring back the
fire?
DR. DOBSON:This happens soon-
er or later in every marriage.A man
and woman just seem to lose the wind
in their romantic sails for a period of
time.
Their plight reminds me of sea-
men back in the days of wooden vessels.
Sailors in that era had much to fear,
including pirates, storms and diseases.
But their greatest fear was that the
ship might encounter the doldrums.
The doldrums were an area of the
ocean near the equator characterized
by calm and very light shifting winds. It
could mean certain death for the entire
crew.The ship's food and water supply
would be exhausted as they drifted for
days, or even weeks, waiting for a
breeze to put them back on course.
Well, marriages that were once
exciting and loving can also get caught
in the romantic doldrums, causing a
slow and painful death to the relation-
ship.Author Doug Fields, in his book
"Creative Romance," writes: "Dating
and romancing your spouse can change
those patterns, and it can be a lot of fun.
There's no quick fix to a stagnant mar-


Dr.
James
Dobson


riage, of course, but you can lay aside
the excuses and begin to date your
sweetheart." In fact,you might want to
try thinking like a teenager again. Let
me explain.
Recall for a moment the crazi-
ness of your dating days -- the coy atti-
tudes, the flirting, the fantasies, the
chasing after the prize.As we moved
from courtship into marriage, most of
us felt we should grow-up and leave
the game-playing behind. But we may
not have matured as much as we'd like
to think. In some ways, our romantic
relationships will always bear some
characteristics of adolescent sexuali-
ty.Adults still love the thrill of the chase,
the lure of the unattainable, excite-
ment of the new and boredom with
the old. Immature impulses are con-
trolled and minimized in a committed
relationship, of course, but they never
fully disappear.
This could help you keep vitality
in your marriage. When things have
grown stale between you and your
spouse, maybe you should remember


some old tricks. How about breakfast
in bed? A kiss in the rain? Or re-read-
ing those old love letters together? A
night in a nearby hotel? Roasting
marshmallows by an open fire?A phone
call in the middle of the day? A long-
stem red rose and a love note? There
are dozens of ways to fill the sails with
wind once more.
If it all sounds a little immature to
act like a teenager again,just keep this
in mind: In the best marriages, the
chase is never really over.
QUESTION: We have a 5-year-old
son who has been diagnosed with ADHD. He
is really difficult to handle and I have no idea
how to manage him. I know he has a neuro-
logical problem;I don't feel right about mak-
ing him obey like we do our other children.
It is a big problem for us.What do you sug-
gest?
DR. DOBSON: I understand your
dilemma, but I urge you to discipline your son.
Every youngster needs the security of defined
limits, and theADHD boy or girl is no excep-
tion. Such a child should be held responsible
for his behavior, although the approach may
be a little different. For example, most chil-
dren can be required to sit on a chair for dis-
ciplinary reasons, whereas some very hyper-
active children would not be able to remain
there. Similarly, corporal punishment is some-
times ineffective with a highly excitable little
bundle of electricity.As with every aspect of
parenthood, disciplinary measures for the
ADHD child must be suited to his or her
unique characteristics and needs.

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2, 2008/NEWS-LEADER


VIEWPOINT/J. CHARLES CRIPPS/FERNANDINA BEACH



Work is the only true source of wealth


T he only true source of
wealth is work. The
work force, called
"slaves" "employees" or
"work force," is the source of
wealth. People all over the USA
and the world have been falsely
taught that the true source of
wealth is invested money or
possession of the means of pro-
duction. This is not true. All
invested money originally came
from work. All means of produc-
tion require work to create and
operate them. The person who
does the investing may not be
the one who did the work, but
someone originally did do the
work.
Money merely represents
work. Money is a medium of
exchange. Money (representing
work) is exchanged for other
things.
No natural resource - food,
clothing, shelter, medicines,
water, metals, oil, timber, gold,
diamonds, etc. - may be gained
except by work. The work force
is absolutely essential in gaining
wealth. Any material possession
may only be had because some-
one worked to produce it.
People have been taught that
"it is better to own the apple
orchard." This is true only if
someone plants the apples, nour-
ishes the apples and harvests the


apples. Without the work force
the orchard is useless. Wealth
cannot be had from it unless
someone works.
A farm requires work. A
restaurant requires work. Every
product and every service
known to mankind requires
work. The work force cannot be
eliminated from the equation.
Computers and machines may
seemingly do all of the work, but
someone had to build and pro-
gram those computers, and
someone had to run those
machines. The fuel to run them
had to be gained by work.
A nation is wealthy in propor-
tion to the number of people
doing productive work.
Members of the work force
need to realize that they are the
most important factor in making
the products and performing the
services and ultimately creating
the wealth. They, and they alone,
are actually and justly entitled to
the greatest portion of the wealth
produced.
In every primitive society, the
hunter ate first. This is because
sustaining his life was necessary
to continue the process of repeat-
edly gaining wealth (food) from
hunting.
Dollars, money (whether
American dollars or Eurodollars
or Chinese yuan, or coins or


gold dust) are merely a medium
of exchange representing
work.
Owning the means of produc-
tion does not mean that anything
will be produced. Only when
work is done is anything pro-
duced. So what does work bring
forth that is most valuable?
Those things that sustain life
are most valuable: food, clothing,
shelter, medicine and medical
care, water, the air we breathe.
Other things are valuable in
varying degrees. We may like
and value the glitter of gold, but
we cannot eat gold and survive.
Work is a natural phenomenon.
The true source of wealth in a
nation is the work that is done in
that nation. If people stop work-
ing, they produce nothing, they
do no service, and there is no
wealth.
Today we have ceased to
value work. We value things. We
have even come to value people
in terms of what they possess.
The ancient hunter wasn't valued
just for the results of his hunt but
also for his being able to hunt


again. It wasn't what he pos-
sessed but what he was that was
valuable.
People have value because
God created them. He values
them, but to themselves and to
one another their value is work
they do.
Today, people have come to
see themselves as valuable only
because of what they own. This
is not true. They are valuable
because God values them, and
we value them; they can work.
What they own was gotten by
work. It is not what they own that
makes them valuable. What they
own is valuable because of the
work that went into producing it.
You, the worker, are
immensely valuable because of
what you are and what you can
do. If you do not do anything, if
you do not produce anything, if
you do not perform any service,
you're becoming worthless.
If you are starving and you
cannot exchange diamonds or
money for food, these are sud-
denly worthless to you regard-
less of what people may say they


are worth. You can starve to
death holding on to your posses-
sions if none of them can get you
the food that you need.
A nation may have great natu-
ral resources, but these
resources have to be turned into
value by the work people do with
them. Metal left in the ground is
worthless. Oil left in the ground
is worthless until someone
works to bring it out and to pro-
duce something with it.
The United States did not
become a great and powerful
nation because of the natural
resources found here but
because of the work people did
to put those resources to some
good use - to make something,
to be of service to someone. It is
not our physical might that
makes us great, but rather what
we do with it. Bullying other
nations doesn't make us great.
The only way we become great is
by what we do that is of value to
others. It is when others value
the work we do that we become
valuable in their eyes. America is
not valuable for what it has. It is
valuable for what it does.
It is the work force in
America and what is done with
and by that work force that does
or does not make America great
and valuable in the eyes of the
world. People who have great


possessions but do nothing
worthwhile are essentially worth-
less.
The celebration of Labor
Day in the United States has
become a sad joke because of
misplaced values. Labor is
thought to have little or no
value. But this is a mistake in
thinking. Once the slave recog-
nizes how his work is being con-
trolled and its value stolen from
him, he becomes resentful and
stops working. The way to get
the maximum work out of a per-
son is by assuring that he
receives the maximum value
from his work.
Today the world is dominated
by people that own things (got-
ten through someone's work)
and who control people to extract
value from their work. This
should not be. The people who
do the work should be the ones
who control how things are and
get the largest part of the value
from their work.
If you are a member of the
work force, start valuing what
you do, who you are, and don't
work unless you get just value
from it. Working people working
together can accomplish much
more than if they seek justice
singly. The value of the work
force must be restored in our
country for it to survive.

How to cure


a hangover

is not to indulge in the first place.
Having failed that, the remedies range
from "hair of the dog that bit you" - con-
suming more of what got you into the sorry state
you're in - to replenishing what you've lost dur-
ing your indulgence - vitamins and liquids, in the
case of too much alcohol.
Too much of a good thing leads one to ponder,
as a new year dawns, lifestyle changes such as
diet and exercise. Slimming down economically
also is a good way to wear off the splurges that
beset us now, as individuals, businesses and gov-
ernments.
Our real estate industry is in the doldrums,
restaurants are closing, other businesses are
trimming hours or services and workers are los-
ing their jobs. Yet our governments, which
depend on us to finance their wastrel ways, have
yet to sober up.
Now is the time for a set of resolutions to put
us on the right path.
Property values are falling, yet the property
taxes that finance our local governments are still
rising or, at least, not dropping. Yet.
But a year from now this could be very differ-
ent. These declining property values should lead
to less property tax revenue for local govern-
ments. Not to mention what Floridians may
decide about property tax reform in a state elec-
tion Jan. 29.
Sales tax revenues, another staple of local gov-
ernment revenue, also are bound to decline. As
each of us tightens our belts, we tighten govern-
ment's as well.
We haven't yet heard much talk from the city
or county commissions or school board about
what steps they're taking to cut back. In the mid-
dle of a fiscal year, the lost income is not yet
apparent.
But other local governments in Florida are
already facing cuts in local services, layoffs of
employees and other tough decisions. These are
likely coming our way.
We call on our local governments to begin
now to trim expenditures, to bolster rather than
spend reserves and to take a sharp pencil to their
budgets in advance of the gathering storm. If it is
not raining yet, the storm clouds are gathering.
Cut us off now, barkeeper. We'll thank you for
it in the morning.

[ VIEWPOINT/Lou FREY, JR/FORMER MEMBER OF CONGRESS



Now, Iowa and New


get a bounce out of Iowa, but not enough to
capture New Hampshire. His lack of money
and the close examination of past statements
will hurt, and his candidacy for president will fade by
Feb. 5.
Huckabee is moving up in New Hampshire even
though there are far fewer "religious right" in New
Hampshire than Iowa. However, he has already
made a strong showing and will be a very serious
contender for the vice presidential nomination.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is
betting that he can survive without winning Iowa or
New Hampshire, as McGovern and Clinton did. The
mayor has the financial resources to survive losing
in both states and yet compete in the remaining
important primaries up to and including Feb. 5.
The wild card in New Hampshire is U.S. Rep. Ron
Paul of Texas. His recent fundraising is amazing. He
claims he will have raised $12 million this quarter.
He is now able to compete with the leaders on all
media outlets. The question yet to be answered is
what percentage of the vote will he get and who will
be hurt.
My guess, and let me emphasize it is truly a
guess, is that McCain and Giuliani have fewer poten-
tial voters who will change to Paul than former
Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and U.S. Sen. Fred
Thompson, who are more at risk.

VIEWPOINT/MICHAEL REAGAN/CAGLE CARTOONS



Huckabee strategy no accident


JOHN DARKOW/COLUMBIA (MO.) DAILY TRIBUNE


NATE BEELER/THEWASHINGTON EXAMINER


n addition to seeing Mike Huckabee suddenly
surge in the polls, the nation is also witnessing
some of the smartest campaign strategies any can-
didate has displayed in a long time. The former
Arkansas governor has shown he can play the game
with the best of them, and better than most.
Let's start with the Huckabee Christmas commer-
cial, obviously aimed at evangelical Christians who con-
stitute more than 40 percent of Iowa voters. Huckabee
not only preached a sermon to that choir of Iowa vot-
ers, he spoke in front of what appeared to be a cross
that appeared prominently in the background above his
shoulder.
It's important to keep in mind that this TV ad did
not occur in isolation - it was an obvious response to
Mitt Romney's brilliant speech on his faith given the
week before - a speech that won almost-universal
praise. If the Rev. Mike Huckabee wanted to be seen as
the Christian candidate, it required a response.
That's what the latest Huckabee Iowa TV ad was - a
28-second answer to Romney's speech. That ad, one of
the most brilliantly conceived and executed commer-
cials ever seen, attracted worldwide attention. And no
matter how many denials he and his supporters offer,
that was a cross in the background and it was no acci-
dent it was highly visible. Remember that nothing hap-
pens by accident in politics. When it comes to such
campaign gimmicks as TV commercials, everything is
planned, down to the last detail.
That is not in the background because it is a book-
case - it was there because part of it forms a cross,
plain and simple - the rest of the bookcase simply
fades from view. And you have only 28 seconds to dis-
cern the fact that the cross that looms so prominently
is merely part of a larger object.
It was a subliminal message, just as it was a subtle
way of telling voters, "I'm the Christian, Romney is the
Mormon."
While it may have been part of a bookcase shelf or,
as some say, a window, it was there because Huckabee
and his advisors wanted it there to remind voters in
Iowa that the candidate is a real Christian candidate
running for the Republican nomination - one who is
not afraid to display his Christianity boldly in this secu-
lar age which scoffs at all religious beliefs.
There's no doubt in my mind that Ed Rollins, his top
campaign advisor, planned that ad. Ed Rollins is a politi-
cal genius when it comes to those kinds of issues and
he proved that when he worked so effectively to put
my father in the White House.
Mike Huckabee won't admit it, but that ad was care-
fully crafted, it was effective and it was his answer to
Mitt Romney's speech,
It's interesting to note how those in mainstream
media, who have so much trouble dealing with the
birth of Christ, went absolutely bonkers over someone
saying that he is a Christian, that what we celebrated
on Dec. 25 is the birth of Jesus Christ, and daring to
wish his fellow Americans "Merry Christmas" instead
of some innocuous muttering such as "happy holidays."
In his ad, Huckabee was also challenging the media
by rubbing his faith in their faces.
Huckabee did in 28 seconds what it took Mitt
Romney much longer. That's political genius at work.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Forever grateful
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you
to all the individuals and church congregations that
supported me during my tour in Iraq with the 1st
Infantry Division, U.S. Army.
There are far too many people to thank individually
in this letter as I received care packages, cards and
prayers from people in South Carolina down through
Central Florida. Your prayers lifted me up and I know
kept me safe during combat operations and periods of
physical exhaustion. For this I will be forever grateful.
As one of the fortunate ones to complete my tour
and make it back, I can assure you that your support
was appreciated and still needed for the remaining
troops.

Historic District
There is a lot of talk lately about the denial of the
Hardiboard siding replacement on a home in the
Historic District ("City needs 'compassion' in Historic
District rulings," Dec. 26), and I'd like to jump in by
offering my two cents worth on the subject.
As I can clearly see the benefit of real wood to the
historic accuracy of an old home, I can also see the ben-
efit to the owner of a cementious siding product. But
let me sit squarely on the fence here and offer a com-
promise: tax credits.


xr


Yep. Real estate tax credits are the answer to this
dilemma. For many years the owners of these won-
derful homes have complained about the specific, his-
tory-related requirements handed down by the Historic
District Council and city commission. It was only a mat-
ter of time before a disgruntled owner and an anxious
lawyer would get together to "straighten out" this lit-
tle town! Looks like we are heading into a lawsuit now
due to this Hardiboard denial.
However, we can avoid crises like this with a sim-
ple tax credit against the real estate tax. This way the
council gets their product and design of choice, and the
owner gets a break on taxes. Who would argue with
that? Plus, the added advantage is that owners would
be far more willing to use genuine materials and be less
likely to avoid the requirements if they knew that
their taxes would be reduced according to the added
expense of the HDC requirements.
To this end, I have already asked the city com-
mission to review this idea, and they have agreed to
do so. Currently, city staff is looking this over, and I am
hopeful that we can get past most of these recurring
problems and resolve a problem issue that has exist-
ed for many years.
The Historic District is a revenue-generating, job-
producing and irreplaceable asset that must be pro-
tected and preserved. I am hopeful that our commis-
sioners will help us secure this opportunity for a
solution, not just a lawsuit.

Awarding runners
Re: "Undignified" (Dec. 21).
My wife and I have been participating in running
races for many years. Since she is very competitive, she
often faces the situation the letter writer described
where she is the fastest Masters woman (over 40),
fastest Grandmasters (over 50) and also fastest in her
65-69 age group.
In the letter writer's opinion she should receive
all three awards.
She doesn't see it that way. She has chosen to con-
tinue her training regimen so that she still performs
almost as well as when she was younger. Therefore,
she feels that she is competing with all the women in
the race, not just her age-group peers.
Many older men and women may just be getting
into running to improve their general fitness and are
encouraged if they can win one of the seniors awards.
They would certainly be discouraged if all the awards
for older men and women were snatched up by the
"hotshot" seniors.
When my wife attends one of the few races where
duplicate awards are given, she feels embarrassed
and advises the race directors that it shouldn't be
done that way. She feels that each runner should
receive only the highest award to which they are enti-
tled so that others can also have the satisfaction of win-
ning an award.

- 'Little Duck' is king of the pond


t's winter again and the ducks are
back. Many of our freshwater
retention ponds this time of year
become host to flocks of hooded
mergansers, unmistakable with the
large reddish crests of the females, and
flashy white "hoods" of the males.
Most ponds, that is, except for ours.
Our pond is a one duck pond.
Again this year our "Little Duck"
reigns over this choice domain. Little
Duck is not really a duck. He/she is a
pied-billed grebe, a smaller floating
bird, with lobed toes and not webbed
duck-like feet. Every winter for years
now, this grebe, or another one just
like it, moves into our pond. With noth-
ing to identify a male from a female,
and very little distinctive coloration at
all, our winter resident grebe is always
"Little Duck" to us.
Little Duck may be small - but what
Little Duck lacks in size is more than
made up for with courage. As long as
this little bird is around no other swim-
ming bird is allowed to move into the
pond.
The large white great egret, the
even larger great blue heron and the
diminutive little green heron are
allowed to fish along the pond banks.
Little Duck pays them no heed.
But when the hooded mergansers
try to move in, most winters our resi-
dent Little Duck springs into action.
One year I watched as Little Duck
slipped underwater and snuck up on a
flock of mergansers. The poor befud-
dled mergansers didn't know what hit
them - Little Duck was biting their feet
underwater. With my binoculars across
the pond I watched as the mergansers
franticly lifted their feet one after
another in obvious distress, and before
long took off in flight, never to return

WILD WAYS


to this pond again.
This year it was
Bucko who got to
watch the excite-
ment when a single
male merganser
tried to set up shop
in the pond. For a
couple of days, the
male merganser
stayed on one side
of the pond, far
away from Little
Duck. But, one day
the merganser
cruised into the
middle of the


pond, and that was his downfall. Across
the other side of the pond, Bucko
watched as Little Duck quietly sunk in
the water out of sight. (Grebes like
Little Duck are one of the few water
birds that can adjust their buoyancy
and sink without diving.) Moments
later the merganser flapped off into
startled flight and right where he had
been up popped Little Duck, king of
the pond again.
Every winter we look forward to the
first sighting of whatever pied-billed
grebe gets to our pond first, the Little
Duck of the year.
With all our Little Duck watching
over the past seven years, you can
imagine how fond we are of pied-billed
grebes. Yes, the hooded mergansers
are more beautiful, there's no doubt.
But as far as entertaining animal
behavior goes, nothing can compare to
our feisty Little Duck.
Except that is, for the otters. One
morning a couple of months ago, the
Three Stooges trio of river otters visit-
ed the pond (Wild Ways, Nov. 7) and
Little Duck was already in residence.


Oh no! Otters eat grebes! Talk about
torn emotions. Otters, as everyone
who knows me knows, are my favorite
animals. I love otters. But pied-billed
grebes, and especially our own Little
Duck, have a firm place in my heart
too.
With binoculars in hand, and a
determination not to interfere with
nature, I held my breath and watched
the action. The otters circled the
pond, catching crayfish along the
banks, and the grebe, well, I needn't
have worried. Little Duck knew just
what to do.
With no telltale ripple to betray its
presence, Little Duck quietly sank out
of sight in the middle of the pond. The
otters were oblivious, busy catching
prey of a different sort. While the
otters were in the pond, maybe 15 min-
utes or longer, Little Duck disappeared
entirely.
I knew that Little Duck could not
hold his breath for that long, and the
otters on the pond's edge did not flush
him out so where did he go?
Only when I reread my bird behav-
ior books did I learn the secret. Not
only can pied-billed grebes submerge
without a trace, when hiding from
predators they can also stay sub-
merged with just their beak above
water.
Even after seven years of pied-billed
grebe watching, each winter holds a
new discovery. Other retention pond
homeowners can admire your hooded
mergansers. As for me, I'm happy with
my Little Duck.

19; he did not appear to be armed.
A female employee at Amelia
Island Graphics, 850895 US 17, told
police she was "finishing up some
work" when she heard the back
door open. She asked who was
there and when she did not get an
answer, went to the back door and
found a white man standing inside
with a shirt wrapped around his
head and face.
He said, "Give me the money,"
and she kicked him in the groin,
ran from the office and called 911,
according to a report from the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office.
The employee said the back
door was unlocked but the suspect

getting hot


on ags as


playoffs

approach

OK, Jags fans, you
wanted national
respect and now
you've got it. As of
Dec. 28, only three teams -
New England (duh), Indiana-
polis and Dallas - were rated
ahead of Jacksonville in both
the cbssportsline.com and
espn.com power rankings.
Sports.aol.com had the Jags
rated No. 2, just behind the
Patriots.
The hot topic on sports
radio is that if mighty New
England is to fall this season,
Jacksonville might be the
team to take Tom Brady and
company down. On various
Internet sites, the boys in teal
are being pinned as a "team of
destiny" and "the hottest team
in the NFL."
The next few weeks will
determine whether the Jags
will be remembered as a pass-
ing fancy or a true power-
house. A win in the first round
this weekend legitimizes the
hype and sets the stage for
next season. A second-round
victory over the Patriots earns
Jacksonville an eternal spot in
NFL annals ...
With all the above said,
don't go to Vegas just yet.
Because an NFL expert,
moonlighting as a super cen-
ter cashier, assured me the
Jags would have absolutely
zero chance of defeating the
Patriots should the two match
up in the second round.
It's a good thing the NFL
strategically places insiders in
the most covert places or
we would all be less enlight-
ened ...
University of Miami QB
Kirby Freeman has reportedly
been released from his schol-
arship with the 'Canes and will
look to transfer to a college
closer to Texas, his home
state. The problem is, he has a
big "U" tattooed on his back.
Now how will that go over
with his new teammates?
Sure, Freeman could have
expensive surgery to remove
the design but he still might
have a U-shaped scar to
remind him of his time in
Coral Gables. So why not get
creative and have tattooed let-
ters added to and around the
"U," not only to avoid going
under the laser but also to
express his feelings about
wasting two years of eligibility
in Miami? How about
"Unfortunate mistake,"
"Unappreciated" or
"Underutilized?"
Seriously, Freeman's
departure from Miami seems
like a raw deal handed a guy
who, by all accounts, sold out
for his team. Word has it that
Miami plans to open up the
quarterback competition next
spring and Freeman wasn't
part of those plans.
Maybe it's for the best.
After all, the 'Canes don't
exactly resemble a program
on the rise and Freeman
would likely have taken the
brunt of the criticism if things
continued to head south the
next two seasons.
Still, there's the "U" tattoo
to consider. Maybe Freeman
can view his transfer as a res-
cue and include the "U" in the
phrase "Jumped Ship." ...
Next Monday's BCS
Championship game between
LSU and Ohio State might be
the final barometer to either
validate or dismiss the notion
that SEC teams, from top to
bottom, are faster than Big 10
(two) teams.
The topic has been a hot
one ever since the University
of Florida ran over, around
and by the Buckeyes to easily
capture last year's title. I'm


predicting similar success for
LSU. Speed kills, and the
Tigers have more of it.
Prediction: LSU 34, OSU 17.

PHOTOS BY BETHJONES/NEWS-LEADER
It was an exceptional season for the Fernandina Beach High School football team (8-3 overall) and its junior quarterback Emory Wingard, who has been named
the most valuable player of the 2007 all-Nassau County football team. The team appears on 3B.




Pirate quarterback county's MIP +


BETH JONES
News Leader
Just one win. That's all it would have taken to improve on
2006's winless season. But the Pirates didn't settle for just
one win. They collected eight en route to an 8-3 overall
record and made the playoffs for the first time since 1995 -
when current Pirate quarterback Emory Wingard was just
five years old.
"Our goal was to make the playoffs," said Wingard,
Nassau County's most valuable player for 2007. "But before
the season started, I didn't really know."
Wingard, 17, a junior at Fernandina Beach High School,
said it started sinking in after win No. 3 - the Pirates won
their first six games, the best start for the FBHS program
since 1962. They lost just two games during the regular
season and advanced to the first round of the playoffs. South
Sumter High brought the season to an abrupt halt.
"It was exciting to be there," Wingard said. "I just wish
we could have done better. It was a long ride home."
After going 0-10 in 2006, Wingard said winning felt pret-
ty good.
"That made it a whole lot better, not winning a game
last year then turning it around and only losing three," he
said.
Wingard said he was especially pleased with wins over
Keystone Heights and Bishop Kenny. Despite routs at the
hands of Bolles and South Sumter, Wingard said he regrets
that first loss of the season - to West Nassau by a point.
"That one hurt," Wingard said.
Wingard is already preparing for his senior season.
"I've got to learn how to read coverages better, read
what the defenses are doing to me," he said. "I've got to work
on that. Work on my footwork. I can always improve that.
"We're looking to make it back to the playoffs. We're
going to work hard to make it back to that point and we're
going to work even harder to do well once we get there."
Wingard, who started his career as a lineman at Yulee
Middle School, switched to quarterback a year later in the
Pop Warner league. He returned to the YMS squad his
eighth grade year and remained in the QB spot.
"I've been playing quarterback since," he said. "I guess
I just stuck with it."
Good thing. Wingard (5-foot-11 1/2 and 180 pounds) put
up impressive numbers for the Pirates this season. He com-
pleted 97 of 183 passes for 1,527 yards and 19 touchdowns
with just eight interceptions. He also scored a pair of rush-
ing TDs.
"I give credit to the line," Wingard said. "They improved
a whole lot from last year. Our receivers stepped up a lot and,
with the help of the line, we had a running game this year."
Wingard is still nursing an injury - a slight separation
of his shoulder - sustained the ninth game of the season
against Ribault.
"He finished the season with it," FBHS Coach Ed "Puggy"
Brown said. "All season long he got beat up and he stayed
in there."
"I'm going to try to do weightlifting this year if my shoul-
der gets better," Wingard said.
Otherwise, he'll be idle until spring football season when
he and his teammates return to the gridiron to get ready for
2008.

Pirate quarterback Emory Wingard threw for
1,527 yards and 19 touchdowns this season.

"He's going to push us so we can top 2007," Wingard said
of Brown. "We have a big group of juniors coming back
and the core of our defense too. The offensive line was half
and half with juniors and seniors. We have a few sopho-
mores and they'll be stepping in to fill holes."
Wingard was named the offensive player of the year for
FBHS.
"Emory is an excellent student and athlete," Brown said.
"He really grew up a lot and showed a lot of maturity. He
worked extremely hard in the offseason. He handled the
pressure very well. We couldn't have gotten as far as we did
without him.
"Our goal was to get to the playoffs. Now we have to win
a playoff. That's our goal."
And Wingard will be back to help steer the Pirates
towards that goal.

Sport
Fishing
Association's
Tournament

pions king-
fish tourna-
ment. The
winning

weighed
39.02
pounds.


Redfish, wahoo


top the action


for 2007 season

"I believe the redfishing was best in 2007," Don
Whitman said. "At least the majority of my tackle
shop customers were purchasing fishing tackle
directly related with redfishing. And they would
often return with some pretty good redfish stories."
You couldn't argue the point that some of the
best fishing during the 2007 fishing season came
from several large schools of redfish that made
their home in Amelia Island waters.
"I can't think of a better fall
run of redfish," Robert Walker
said. "We caught and released
several reds measuring over
50 inches during the peak of
the fall run, which lasted right
up into early December."
However, many fishermen
will contend that the wahoo
fishing offered the best fishing
action during the 2007 fishing
season, particularly during Terry Lacoss
winter and fall. In fact, when ...
weather permitted, blue water
fishing boats were catching up OUTDOORS
to 10 wahoo per trip at
Northeast Florida's Big Ledge and several big
wahoo were landed busting the 80-pound mark.
During the sixth annual Bluewater Shootout
Fishing Tournament, the largest wahoo weighed
just 31.26-pounds and was caught by the "N-tropic,"
captained by Benny Hendrix. The sports fishing
boat "X-Stream" captured first-place honors in the
popular event. The team included Tim Kauffman,
George Lawrence, Howard Murphy and Larry
Gove.
Fernandina Beach did not have a really big run
of kingfish in 2007. In fact, during the 25th annual
Nassau Sport Fishing Association Tournament of
Champions kingfish tournament, many of the big
money king mackerel were either caught far off-
shore or south along the Jacksonville beaches.
Jim Crews, Bill Roberts and Jim Tuten weighed
in the largest kingfish during the popular event
while fishing off Jacksonville's beaches. Their win-
ning king mackerel weighed 39.02 pounds.
Bear Croft captained his "Bear Caught" fishing
team to first-place honors during the Greater
Jacksonville AT&T Kingfish Tournament while
weighing in a 48.6-pound kingfish. Also on board
were Debby Portier, Rick Dopson and Ed
Mecchella. During the 2005 Jacksonville kingfish
tournament, Croft took second-place honors.
Kenny Crawford and the "AT&T Real Yellow
Pages Fishing Team" also won big in 2007, captur-
ing the St. Augustine Kingfish Challenge and the
Darien, Ga., Kingfish Tournament. Team members
included Doreen, Trip and Hunter Fletcher.
Once again, many of the winning tournament
kingfish were taken from the popular Elton Bottom
and the Nassau live bottom. During the heat of the
kingfish season, including the months of June and
July, a good run of king mackerel staged at the
many nearshore fish havens. These were schooling
kingfish, weighing from 8-15 pounds. However,
there was a big void of kingfish along the beaches
of Amelia Island and at the St. Marys inlet.
Drum fishing was also excellent in 2007 with
Robert Haddock weighing in the largest black
drum during the NSFA's annual Drum Fishing
Tournament. There were a record number of
entries in 2007, but none bested Haddock's 88.42-
pound black drum.
Greg Nissen weighed in the largest sea trout
during the NSFA annual Les Sutton Memorial
Trout Tournament. The big speck weighed 3.52
pounds. Bruce Comrie weighed in the largest
speck, 3.5 pounds, during the annual Knox Wyatt
Memorial Trout Tournament. Trout fishing was
also excellent during the 2007 sea trout season,
producing excellent catches of 2- to 3-pound sea
trout.
All in all, it was a good fishing season in 2007
with the lack of hurricanes and tropical storms.
Water temperatures also remained stable without
fish-repelling thermoclines.
More fishermen were practicing catch and
release during 2007. Along with better fish manage-
ment programs, Amelia Island fishing can only get
better.

New fees for licenses
A new fee schedule is in effect
for all recreational licenses
issued by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission. During its 2007
session, the Florida Legislature
passed a bill to increase the fees
for all recreational saltwater and
freshwater fishing and hunting
licenses. Hunting license fees
were last increased in 1979 and
fishing license fees in 1989.
All the fees from these licens-
es go back into conserving fish
and wildlife resources and bene-
fit anglers and hunters. The
increased revenue, expected to
total $10 million annually within
four years, will not create new
programs, but will offset a pre-
dicted $12.5 million deficit by
2010. In addition to issuing the
licenses, FWC is charged with
directly conserving fish and
wildlife resources, and it creates
and enforces rules and regula-
tions regarding hunting and fish-
ing in the state as well as promot-
ing boating safety and access.
FWC presented its findings to
the Legislature earlier this year.


The projected deficit would leave
revenue streams for marine fish-
eries, freshwater fisheries and
hunting in jeopardy.
Purchase recreational licens-
es online at MyFWC.com, or by
calling 1-888-347-4356 or 1-888-
486-8356, or from numerous
sporting goods retailers and at
tax collectors' offices. If licenses
are not purchased at tax collec-
tors' offices, additional process-
ing fees will be applied.

This year,
solution time. We all do
it. Make resolutions. The
Top 10 include losing
weight, getting fit, saving
money, drinking less alcohol,
stopping smoking and, surprising-
ly, doing more volunteer work.
Tops on the Big Guy's and my
list every year are losing weight
and exercising more.
Different things work for dif-
ferent people. For some people it
is Weight Watchers or joining a
gym. When it comes down to it
we are all trying to change bad
habits into good habits. With a
whole new year ahead our ambi-
tions are limitless.
Some people are adding
"green" resolutions to this year's
lists. People are more and more
worried about their "carbon foot-

There is

need to try

PORCH vidual basis
to help in
some small way. Talk about
habits. Just think of all the bottled
water that is consumed. How did
we get to a point where we had to


to keep res
have water in a bottle? Americans
consume 50 billion plastic bottles
of water a year. Think of all those
empty bottles.
While you are thinking about
all those empty plastic bottles,
think about the brown plastic
bags that we carry home from the
grocery store. For a start you can
take back the bags when you
shop the next time. Better yet,
bring bags that can be reused. We
all can start looking harder for
recycled products even if it means
using paper towels and toilet
paper that aren't so downy soft or
snowy white.

of us contemplating resolutions.
* Temperance: Eat not to dull-
ness; drink not to elevation.
* Order: Let all your things
have their places; let each part of
your business have its time.
* Resolution: Resolve to per-
form what you ought; perform
without fail what you resolve.
* Frugality: Make no expense
but to do good to others or your-
self; i.e., waste nothing.
* Moderation: Avoid ex-
tremes; forbear resenting injuries
so much as you think they
deserve.
* Industry: Lose no time; be
always employed in something
useful; cut off all unnecessary
actions.
* Cleanliness: Tolerate no
uncleanliness in body, clothes, or


habitation.
* Tranquility: Be not disturbed
at trifles, or at accidents common
or unavoidable.
So here go mine: Exercise
every day. Go to the farmers mar-
ket Saturday mornings. Buy from
local businesses. Read more
books. Go to the beach more
often. Spend more time with my
grandchildren. Watch less TV. Eat
more green vegetables. Drink
more water (not from bottles).
Use my volunteer time wisely.
It's a start. Good luck to you as
you determine your resolutions

Red pepper on pizza a slice of life

ANNETTE GOOCH
Universal Press Syndicate � I


Look around any pizzeria and
you'll find glass shakers or foil
packets filled with crushed red
pepper. Also known as "pizza
pepper" or "hot pepper flakes,"
this simple condiment can enliv-
en a pizza with exciting warmth
and flavor.
The Italian name for this
product ("peperoni rosso") may
call to mind a type of sausage,
but the words in fact mean sim-
ply "red pepper." The hot taste
comes from the pepper seeds
mixed in with the shreds of dehy-
drated red pepper.
Yet another type of red pep-
per found in the supermarket's
spice aisle is "red pepper spice,"
a blend of dried peppers (usually
both sweet and hot), including
cayenne, paprika and ground red
pepper in varying proportions.
By contrast, "pizza spice," a mix
of dehydrated garlic, onion,
sugar, salt and various herbs or
spices sprinkled over pizza
before or after baking, may or
may not include red peppers.
When selecting dried red pep-
per products, keep in mind that
their pungency can range from
mildly spicy to hot as blazes.
Besides their value as a condi-
ment for pizza, dried red peppers
are used in making fresh
sausage and for seasoning toma-
to sauce, chili, stews, soups, egg
dishes, pasta specialties, salads
and steamed shellfish.
Pair yourfavorite thick tomato
sauce or prepared pizza sauce
with the streamlined dough recipe
thatfollows this one or substitute
ready-to-bake pizza crusts.

DEEP-DISH PIZZA

3/4 pound Italian sausages,
mild or spicy
Food Processor Pizza Dough
(see recipe below)
4 cups (1 pound) shredded
whole-milk mozzarella cheese
1/2 pound domestic mush-
rooms, thinly sliced
Approximately 1 to 1 1/2 cups
prepared tomato sauce or pizza
sauce
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
cheese
Crushed red pepper, as desired
1. Remove casings from
sausages; crumble meat into a
large frying pan. Cook, stirring
often, over medium heat until
lightly browned. Spoon off and
discard drippings. Set sausage
aside.
2. Preheat oven to 450
degrees. Lightly oil 3 (9-inch)
round deep-dish pizza pans (each

about 11/2 inches deep). Divide
dough into 3 equal portions; roll
each portion out on a floured sur-
face to about a 9-inch circle. Use
your hands to pat and stretch
dough to fit into each pan, press-
ing it against sides of pan to
reach top edge.
3. Sprinkle 2/3 cup of the
mozzarella over bottom of each
portion of dough. Cover each
with an even layer of mush-
rooms, then with cooked
sausage. Spread approximately a
third of the tomato sauce over
the sausage in each pan. Cover
with remaining mozzarella, divid-
ing it evenly; sprinkle a third of
the Parmesan over each pizza.
4. Bake on lowest rack of
oven until crust browns well (20
to 25 minutes). Cut into wedges
and serve at once. Pass crushed
red pepper at the table. Makes 3
(9-inch) pizzas.
This dough requires only mini-
mal hand-mixing and can be
ready to bake in under an hour.

FOOD-PROCESSOR
PIZZA DOUGH
2 1/2 to 2 2/3 cups bread flour
1 package fast-rising active dry
yeast


1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup hot (115 degrees to 125
degrees) water
1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons olive oil
1. In work bowl of food
processor, mix 2 1/2 cups of the
flour, yeast and salt. Combine the
hot water, honey and olive oil in a
measuring cup. With processor
running, pour water mixture
through feed tube in a steady
stream, adjusting amount poured
so flour can absorb it. Turn
processor off when dough forms
a ball. Dough should feel a little
sticky. If it is too soft, add more
flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until
dough has a firm consistency.
2. Knead by processing for an
additional 45 seconds. Remove
dough and shape into a ball.
3. Place dough in an oiled
bowl and turn to coat evenly with
oil. Cover with plastic film and a
kitchen towel; let rise in a warm
place until dough is doubled in
bulk (30 to 40 minutes). Punch
dough down, cover with inverted
bowl, then let rest for about 10
minutes before rolling out to fit
pans.
The amount of crushed red
pepper in the dressing for this
main-dish salad can be adjusted to


suit your taste. Roasted sesame oil
contributes a traditional Asian
flavor to the salad. It is available
at Asian markets, specialty food
markets, and in the Asian foods
section of larger supermarkets.

THAI NOODLE SALAD
WITH CHICKEN

1 pound Chinese dried egg noo-
dles or linguine
4 poached chicken breast
halves, skinned and boned
Cilantro sprigs, mint leaves
and chopped peanuts, for garnish
Sesame-soy dressing (recipe fol-
lows)
1. In a 4 1/2-quart saucepan,
bring 4 quarts water to a boil.
Add noodles, stir to separate, and
reduce heat to medium. Cook
noodles, following package direc-
tions, until tender but still firm.
Remove from heat and drain
well.
2. While noodles are cooking,
prepare Sesame-Soy Dressing.
Toss warm noodles with dress-
ing to coat.
3. Shred each chicken breast
half into medium-sized pieces;
add to noodles. Stir to coat chick-
en with sauce and mix with noo-
dles. Garnish with cilantro


sprigs, mint leaves and chopped
peanuts, and serve at once.
Serves 8.

SESAME-SOY
DRESSING

3/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup chicken broth or water
1/2 cup coarsely chopped
peanuts
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup firmly packed brown
sugar
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons dark (roasted)
sesame oil
2 tablespoons light olive oil or
other mild vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups minced fresh mint
leaves
1/2 cup minced cilantro leaves
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups shredded carrots
4 green onions, minced
1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes

In a 4-quart bowl, thoroughly
combine all ingredients. Makes
about 2 3/4 cups dressing.

Once a year, buy the bay


ANNETTE GOOCH
Universal Press Syndicate

The dried bay leaves in your cabinet
come from a frost-tender Mediterranean
shrub with glossy, dark green foliage: bay
laurel (Laurus nobilis). Shaped like the
head of a spear, a gray-green bay leaf is a
handsome garnish, but it's the intense fla-
vor that has made this one of the most
widely used culinary herbs for the past
2,000 years or more.
So pungent is bay that it's nearly
always used dried, and except for
assertively seasoned Louisiana-style cook-
ing, with restraint. One or two dried
leaves is sufficient to flavor a big pot of
stock, soup or stew, and the leaves are
generally removed before the dish is
served. Bay is also used in marinades,
braising liquids for beef, veal, lamb or
poultry, stuffings and sauces.
Along with thyme and parsley, bay leaf
is one of the components of bouquet
garni, a traditional French herbal blend.
The herbs are usually bundled and tied
with kitchen string or wrapped in cheese-
cloth to make them easier to remove from
the dish. Bay leaves are most flavorful
when freshly dried but lose quality fairly
quickly. It's best to buy bay from a market
with a brisk turnover of dried herbs and
renew your supply every 12 months.

Success tips
* Whole and ground bay leaf is avail-
able packed in small jars or tins. Like
other dried herbs, bay leaves should be
stored in a cabinet or pantry away from
light and heat. Whole leaves retain their
flavor better than the ground form.
* Burying a dried bay leaf in an air-
tight canister of rice imparts a subtle
savory flavor to the grain.


The world's best-known French stew calls
for braising beef in red wine with bay leaf
and other herbs. Garlic, onions, carrots and
mushrooms make this a warming dish for
cooler weather If pearl onions (which are
marble-sized) aren't available in your area,
substitute slightly larger boiling onions.
Note that the beef needs to marinate at
least one day before cooking and requires
three to 3 1/2 hours cooking time. Serve the
beef with egg noodles or potatoes. The stew
may be prepared up to two days ahead and
refrigerated, but be sure to remove any con-
gealed fat from the surface of the liquid
before reheating it.

BOEUF BOURGUIGNON

2 large leeks (white part only), cleaned
and cut into 1/2-inch lengths
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme or 1/2
teaspoon dried
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon crushed peppercorns
3 pounds beef chuck roast, well-trimmed
and cut in 11/2-inch cubes
1/2 cup dry red wine, plus an additional
1/2 cup wine if needed
2 tablespoons Cognac or brandy
3 ounces slab bacon, cut in 1/4-inch
pieces
1 1/2 ounces dried cepe (porcini) mush-
rooms
1 cup carrots, cut in 1/2-inch chunks
12 ounces pearl onions, blanched 30 sec-
onds in boiling water and then peeled
8 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 pound mushrooms, halved if large

thyme, bay leaves, peppercorns, 1/2 cup
of the wine and Cognac. Add meat; cover
bowl with plastic film and refrigerate 24 to
48 hours.
2. In a Dutch oven or large skillet over
moderately low heat, cook bacon until
browned. Use a slotted spoon to transfer
bacon to a plate. Raise heat to moderately
high; add beef in small batches, brown on
all sides, removing from Dutch oven when
browned.
3. Return all browned beef to Dutch
oven; add bacon and marinade. Bring to a
simmer over moderately high heat, then
reduce heat to barely maintain a simmer
and braise, covered, 2 hours.
4. Meanwhile, soak dried mushrooms
in 1 cup warm water for 20 minutes, then
lift mushrooms out of liquid with a slotted


spoon. Rub the mushrooms with your fin-
gers to ensure that they are free of grit;
rinse in fresh water if necessary. Add
mushrooms to Dutch oven along with car-
rots, onions and garlic. Simmer, uncov-
ered, until beef is fork-tender (1 to 1 1/2
hours more), adding up to 1/2 cup more
red wine and a little water if too much liq-
uid evaporates.
5. In a medium skillet over moderately
high heat, melt butter. Add fresh mush-
rooms and saute until lightly browned
(about 5 minutes). Add mushrooms to
stew and continue to cook 10 minutes.
Remove bay leaves. Season to taste with
salt and pepper before serving. Serves 6.

Kingsley celebration



set for February

For the News Leader


After nine years as an annual
October event, the Kingsley
Heritage Celebration has moved
to February.
The public is invited to join
the staff at the Timucuan
Ecological and Historic
Preserve in Jacksonville for the
10th annual Kingsley Heritage
Celebration each Saturday in
February. Each weekend will
feature a special afternoon
event, beginning Feb. 2 with the
"Other War of 1812" with Dr.
James Cusick, curator of the P
K Yonge Library of Florida
History at the University of
Florida.
A highlight of the event
series will be a descendants'
reunion on Feb. 23, which is
open to the public.
Sponsored by the National
Park Service's Timucuan
Ecological and Historic
Preserve and the Florida
Humanities Council, the event
series is free and open to the
public.
The goal of the Kingsley
Heritage Celebration is to help
the local community explore cul-
tural traditions found in modern
American society that originated
during the plantation period.
According to Timucuan
Preserve Superintendent
Barbara Goodman, "We are very
excited to move the Kingsley
Heritage Celebration to
February and Black History
Month. Each Saturday afternoon
throughout February the pre-
sentations will offer unique
insight into both the lives of the
enslaved men, women and chil-
dren who toiled here on Fort
George Island as well the lives
of the owner's families, includ-
ing the Kingsley family. History
will be brought alive through a
wide variety of entertainment.
The month-long celebration will
culminate with a rare opportuni-
ty to hear from descendants of
the people who lived at Kingsley
Plantation. Descendants will
gather with the public on the
last Saturday to share family sto-
ries."
The schedule includes story-
telling, music, genealogy talks,
historical presentations, special


CELEBRATION EVENTS

Feb. 2 - Learn about the "Other War of 1812" with Dr. James
Cusick, curator of the P. K. Yonge Library of Florida History at the
University of Florida. He will highlight the personalities and ambi-
tions of two owners of Kingsley Plantation, and describe how
volatile Florida was before it became a territory of the United
States. This political and social situation affected planters and
slaves throughout northeast Florida on a daily basis.
Feb. 9 - The University of North Florida, Jacksonville Sister
Cities Association, the city of Nantes (France), and the city of
Jacksonville partner with the National Park Service to present a
special exhibit and talk. A representative from Nantes, France, will
speak about that city's role in the transatlantic slave trade. Visitors
can also view a special exhibit from Nantes, and hear a perform-
ance by students from UNF's highly regarded music program.
Feb. 16 - Join Dr. James Davidson, associate professor of
Anthropology and African American Studies, and the Florida
Public Archaeology Network for a guided walk of the slave quar-
ters. Hear about archaeological finds at the slave quarters and
plantation grounds from the 2006 and 2007 archaeology field
schools. Discover how the people who were enslaved at this
plantation can still speak to us through the objects they left
behind.
Feb. 23 - During a full afternoon of activities, learn more about
plantation history through storytelling, music, and history presen-
tations.

Highlights include:
* Meet descendants of the families who lived at Kingsley
Plantation between the 1790s and 1890s. Hear about their family
history in their own words, as they tell family stories or read letters
written by their ancestors. Also featured will be an exhibit display-
ing historic and modern photographs of the family members.
* Follow Zephaniah Kingsley on his journeys around the world
through the letters he wrote during 1804-6 and 1812-14. Listen as
the letters are read by actors or Kingsley descendants. Dr. Daniel
Schafer, professor of history at the University of North Florida, will
narrate the story of Kingsley's life and travels.
* Learn how to research your ancestry. Retired University of
North Florida professorAnn Stoddard will share the story of her
quest to track down her Native American, African-American and
white ancestors. She will explain how you can begin to discover
your family's genealogy.


exhibits, and a descendants'
reunion.
Kingsley Plantation is a unit
of the National Park Service's
46,000-acre Timucuan
Ecological and Historic
Preserve in Jacksonville. It is
named for Zephaniah Kingsley
(and his African wife Anna), who
owned and operated a 1,000-acre
plantation there during the first
half of the nineteenth century.
Today, the public can visit the
grounds, which include Florida's
oldest standing (1798) plantation


house, kitchen building, barn
and waterfront. The still-stand-
ing remains of 25 slave cabins
offer perhaps the most graphic
evidence of slave living quarters
and daily life experiences in the
state, if not the South.
Located off Heckscher
Drive/A1A one-half mile north
of the St. Johns River ferry land-
ing, Kingsley Plantation is open
daily at no charge from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. For more information,

Veterans project explores



Air War in SoutheastAsia


For the News Leader

The Amelia Island Museum of
History Heroes Among Us
Luncheon Program Series,
Program 9: "Air War in Southeast
Asia" featuring Col. Mickey
Baity, United States Air Force,
retired, will be held Jan. 24 at St.
Peter's Episcopal Church, Eighth
Street and Atlantic Avenue,
Fernandina Beach.
Lunch begins at 11:15 a.m.
and the program at noon. Tickets
are $20 per person and include
buffet lunch and program.
Proceeds benefit the museum's
Veterans
History
Project
and the
Episcopal
Church
Women.
The
event is
open to
the public.
Reservations and advance pay-
ment are required by Jan. 18.
Call 261-7378, ext. 100, for more
information or to make reserva-
tions.
Baity served in Southeast
Asia from 1968-72. First assigned
to F-4's flying out of Cam Ranh
Bay, he flew missions into North
Vietnam, Laos and Thailand and
worked closely with Special
Forces.
By 1970, he was on his sec-
ond tour flying with the 8th
Attack Fighter Wing, 433rd
Squadron - also known as the
Pay Boy Squadron. His third and
final tour in Southeast Asia was
with the 4th Tactical Fighter
Wing. During his Southeast Asia
tours he flew more than 3,000
hours on 413 missions. Baity will
speak about his experiences dur-
ing this eventful period of
American military history.
Even as a young boy, Baity's
goal in life was to become a fight-
er pilot. He completed his under-
graduate degree and ROTC train-
ing at University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill in three
years, fearing that any more time
spent in school might cause him
to miss the Vietnam War.


SUBMITTED PHOTOS

Vietnam War, above, and today, inset. The retired pilot now
lives on Amelia Island and will speak about his experiences
during the war on Jan. 24 at St. Peter's Episcopal Church as
part of the Amelia Island Museum of History Heroes Among
Us Luncheon Program Series.


In 1966 he received his Air
Force commission and immedi-
ately began training to fly fighter
planes. During three tours and
413 missions in Southeast Asia
between 1968-72, Baity flew F-4s
out of South Vietnam's Cam
Ranh Bay and Ubon, Thailand.
His missions were varied. He
flew close air support; he
dropped "Pay Boys," early laser-
guided bombs; and he also flew
chaff drops to distract enemy
radar.
Following his service in
Southeast Asia, Baity returned to
the United States for additional
training and duty as an instruc-
tor. He went on to serve several


security assistance assignments
with foreign air forces, including
those of Iran, Kenya, Egypt and
Jordan. In 1987, Baity returned
to the United States for an
assignment serving on the
Secretary of Defense's Staff on
Policy on the Middle East, Near
East and South Asia. In that posi-
tion, his assignments were varied
and included working with many
familiar civilian defense leaders,
including Richard Armitage,
Caspar Weinberger and Richard
Cheney.
He retired from the Air Force
in 1992, working briefly as a con-
sultant on disarmament talks as a
civilian. Baity and his family
