FAITH WALK


PHOTOS BY HEATHER. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
Pat Kerr, top, leaving St. Peter's Episcopal Church, was one
of about 75 people who braved chilly rain Saturday to take
part in the Faith Walk, which commemorated the 100th
anniversary of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Father
Brian Eburn of St. Michael Catholic Church, above, thanks
Kay Stephens at the conclusion of the walk, which was coor-
dinated by the women's councils of St. Peter's, St. Michael,
Memorial United Methodist, First Presbyterian and First
Baptist churches.


City seeks to regulate



its cable TV channel


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
If City Manager Michael
Czymbor has his way, the city's
local public access channel will
have a new regulatory policy.
Czymbor has asked city com-
missioners to consider adopting a
Public, Educational, and Govern-
ment Channel Broadcasting, or
PEG, policy for the channel the
city has with cable television fran-
chisee Comcast.
The PEG policy would desig-
nate what types of programs the
city would allow to be broadcast.
Any religious, political or com-


mercial shows
would have to
pay Comcast for
airtime and
would not be
m e allowed on the
.i city's public
access channel.
"Our quan-
Czymbor dary is that we
don't have any
rules and regu-
lations," Czymbor told commis-
sioners at a Jan. 22 commission
meeting. He pointed out that if the
city allows churches to have free
programming, it must also allow
any organization, no matter how


controversial, to run programs on
the channel.
Commissioner Ron Sapp said
the progression of public access
cable "has been interesting to
watch." He noted that the cable
company used to be "equal access,"
providing free equipment and a stu-
dio for the public to air its own
shows. "Now the taxpayers have
to provide the equipment," he said.
"The First Amendment didn't apply
to Comcast, but it applies to us."
Commissioner Bruce Malcolm
asked Czymbor if there had been a
problem with misuse of the chan-

Marina fuel plan nixed


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners have voted down a "fuel
farm" proposal that would have
required 40,000-gallon under-
ground tanks at the marina, citing
unknown costs among other con-
cerns.
Commissioners voted 3-2 on
Jan. 22 against awarding a contract
to MECO of North Florida to install
the new underground fuel farm.
Commissioners Ron Sapp and Ken
Walker voted in favor of the project.
Projected cost of the project was
$365,532.
The fuel tanks now located
beneath Parking Lot A are being


replaced be-
Scause of new
state Depart-
- ment of Environ-
mental Protec-
- tion regulations
requiring that all
underground
fuel tanks must
Langshaw be replaced by
December 2009
if they do not
comply with new double-wall stan-
dards.
City Marina Director Coleman
Langshaw explained to commis-
sioners that Parking Lot B was the
best choice for new underground
tanks because it offers the shortest
and most efficient path for fuel to


be piped to the fuel docks.
The new system would also
offer high-speed fueling and the
tanks, at 40,000 gallons, would be
much larger. This would attract
more boats in the 100-foot range to
buy fuel and visit the marina,
Langshaw said.
The current tanks, he noted,
would stay in the ground but would
be filled with sand to weigh them
down.
Commissioner Joe Gerrity, how-
ever, had concerns about the cost
of the underground fuel tanks, and
asked why there was no alterna-
tive system to choose from, such as
above-ground tanks.

Students' science scores fall below average


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News Leader


Florida students' science scores
have fallen below the national aver-
age, spurring the state's
Department of Education to revise
science benchmarks.
"Student achievement is not
where we need it to be," said Mary
Jane Tappan, executive director of
the Florida Office of Math and
Science.
The National Assessment of
Education Progress, or NAEP,
found in 2005 that Florida's fourth
and eighth grade students' science
scores ranked behind the national
average and behind the majority of
leading nations, she said.
In response, the state sought
out experts to revise its science
standards that were "over 10 years
old and outdated," Tappan said.
The standards, written for all
grade levels, include 18 broad top-
ics, such as Earth in space and time,
properties of matter, heredity and
reproduction and evolution and
diversity.
Nassau district schools passed a


resolution Jan. 24 urging the state
Board of Education to revise the
standards "so that evolution is not
presented as fact" and "such that
evolution is not presented at the
exclusion of other theories of origin
of life."
Other North Florida school dis-
tricts, including Clay, St. Johns,
Jackson, Holmes, Baker, Madison
and Taylor, have passed similar res-
olutions.
"We appreciate their concern,"
Tappan said about the resolutions.
Public comment has been divided
into the broad and specific, with
changes that can be applied incor-
porated into the revisions, she said.
The state Board of Education
will vote on the revised science stan-
dards Feb. 19.
The state's first surgeon gener-
al, Ana M. Viamonte Ros, who vis-
ited Nassau County Tuesday,
expressed concern that Florida's
students receive a comprehensive
science education.
Ros did not comment on the
local resolutions but shared her
thoughts on science education.
"I feel that science is ... there

are things that are incontrovertible
and there are things that aren't.
And I think it's important to have an
open mind and to make sure that
you've included all opinions and
facts," she said. "But things that
are factual, and have been proven,
students deserve to be exposed to
those theories and proofs."
Ros emigrated to the U.S. from
Cuba in 1960. She received her
medical degree from the University
of Miami School of Medicine and
her master's of public health from
the Harvard School of Public
Health. Gov. Charlie Crist last year
appointed Ros to her post.
"I believe, as I did with my own
children, to expose them to as many
different opinions," Ros said, noting
that her children won national
championships as debaters due to
that exposure.
"You need to hear both sides
and you need to be able to argue
both sides in order to be very effec-
tive," she said. "But I think it's
important not to limit a child to evi-
dence and to the breadth of our sci-
entific knowledge base."

Beware the 'sneak thief of sight


For the News Leader

For millions of Americans, the
threat of vision loss is all too real.
However, only half of them are
aware that they have a potentially
blinding eye disease. Glaucoma
destroys peripheral vision and,
over time, can cause blindness.
The "sneak thief of sight" has no
warning signs until sight has
already been diminished. Once
sight has been lost to glaucoma,
it cannot be restored.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of
blindness in the world, second
only to cataracts, and the leading
cause of blindness in African-
Americans, according to the
National Institutes of Health. Left
untreated, glaucoma can lead to
damage of the optic nerve, visual
field loss, and ultimately sight
loss. It affects one in 200 people
age 50 and younger and one in 10
over the age of 80.
"We can't stress enough how
vitally important it is to have your
eyes examined by a professional
to protect sight," said Daniel D.
Garrett, senior vice president of


Prevent
Blindness
America.
- "There's no
IM F Mcure for glau-
S coma yet,
_- _but treat-
ment can be
effective if glaucoma is detected
and treated early."
In addition to the impact that
glaucoma can have on quality of
life, the financial implications are
extremely significant. According
to research funded by Prevent
Blindness America, glaucoma
costs the U.S. economy $2.86 bil-
lion every year in direct medical
costs for outpatient, inpatient and
prescription drug services.
Glaucoma patients between the
ages of 40 and 64 years of age can
expect to pay $3,352 annually per
person. For those 65 and older,
the annual costs jump to $5,243
per person. And those expendi-
tures will only increase as med-
ical costs continue to soar.
Prevent Blindness America
has joined other leading eye care
groups to build awareness and

The group also provides free
information on the disease
through its toll-free number and
through the web at the "Glauco-
ma Learning Center," www.pre-
ventblindess.org/glaucoma.
'The Glaucoma Web
Discussion Forum," also part of
the Glaucoma Learning Center's
free online services, allows
patients and caregivers the
opportunity to discuss online all
subjects related to the disease.
Topics range from general infor-
mation on the condition and its
treatment, to shared experiences
and emotional support.
Prevent Blindness America
also offers free printed materials
including the "Guide for People
with Glaucoma." This compre-
hensive booklet serves as a hand-
book for patients and includes
general information about the dis-
ease as well as information on
how to administer eye drops and
types of glaucoma surgery.
Everyone is at risk for devel-
oping glaucoma. However, some


factors that may increase the
chance of having the disease
include:
* Age - The older you are, the
greater your risk.
* Race - African-Americans
have glaucoma four to five times
more often than others. African-
Americans are also likely to have
glaucoma at a younger age.
* Family history - If you have
a parent, brother or sister with
glaucoma, you are more likely to
get glaucoma too. If you have
glaucoma, your family members
should get complete eye exams.
* Medical history - Diabetes,
previous eye injuries, eye sur-
gery or long-term steroid use can
increase your risk of glaucoma.
Prevent Blindness America
offers a variety of fact sheets and
brochures, including a glaucoma
"Eye Q" quiz, a glaucoma 17-
point checklist and a guide for
people who have been diagnosed
with the disease. Materials on

Fort Clinch


found safe
SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Following an inspection by
the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, Fort Clinch has been
declared safe - containing no haz-
ardous materials such as, for
example, unexploded ammuni-
tion from the Civil War.
As a former military installa-
tion, Fort Clinch was named one
of 9,000 sites across the United
States to be inspected and, if nec-
essary, cleaned of any hazardous
materials remaining from when
the land was used as a military
defense site.
The Corps of Engineers has
been conducting these inspec-
tions for more than 20 years,
according to project manager
Charles Fales.
"Basically, we used historical
research and we worked with the
people at Fort Clinch to identify
areas where there might possibly
be something ... identify the most
probable areas where there may
be (unexploded) ordnances,"
Fales said. "Then we go out and
walk around the site, taking sam-
ples for certain chemicals asso-
ciated with munitions, and visu-
ally inspecting (the site) using a
metal detector."
After that, the gathered infor-
mation is evaluated and tested
to determine whether the land
is dangerous and, if so, how dan-
gerous. The Corps is also tasked
with cleaning the site if neces-
sary.
That won't be an issue at Fort
Clinch, Fales said.
The inspection was completed
last month. The next step is to
reveal the results and make rec-
ommendations to Fort Clinch
"stakeholders" - and any mem-
bers of the public - at a meeting
scheduled for March 7 from 9-11
a.m. at the park.
The news revealed at the
meeting will be good news.
"We're going to say we may
be back at some point in the
future, but it is not a high priori-
ty ... because priority is based on
risk," he said. 'The rating score
(for risk) is so low for Fort Clinch
... there's not an immediate need
to do more."
Fort Clinch was used as a
coastal defense site from 1842 to
1927.
Fales has asked the public to
contact him with additional infor-
mation on the fort that could aid
in the inspection.
Fales can be reached at

Corps of Engineers, 701 San

nel. Czymbor answered that the
channel had not been misused but
without the PEG policy, the city
would have to broadcast any pro-
gram, "whatever the organization's
mission."
He added that he thought the
city should be doing "a lot more
programs that would interest the
general public," such as tours of
Egans Creek Greenway and the
lighthouse.
Commissioner Ken Walker said
he could not understand why the
channel hasn't been used more,
but to "keep some form of civility
to the channel we have to adopt
some sort of rules."
Sapp noted there has been com-
munity access programming since



MARINA Continued from 1A
Langshaw explained that in
order to preserve water views,
above-ground tanks would have
to be located at the south end of
the waterfront. He said this would
cause more problems with extend-
ed fuel lines.
Commissioner Bruce Malcolm
also expressed concern about
how the fuel tanks' location would
affect the annual Isle of Eight
Flags Shrimp Festival, as some
booths would have to be relocated
to accommodate the safety zone
around the underground tanks.
Malcolm added that some
community groups "make a large
portion of money at the
shrimpfest."
Langshaw countered that the
festival has "a lot of real estate to
choose from," and noted that after
many discussions with the festi-
val committee, they were "pre-
pared to make adjustments."
"I know that because of the
great work they're doing, they're
going to be fine," he added.
Malcolm also brought up the
possibility of running a pipeline
from Florida Petroleum Co., locat-
ed north of the marina, to the fuel
dock.
Langshaw said that "many


the early '70s, with "no conflict, no
controversy."
"If there begins to be a concern,
then we start to look at that," he
added. "So why pass some exclu-
sionary kinds of rules?"
Czymbor said after the meet-
ing that currently citizens who
want to broadcast their own pro-
grams on the public access channel
must bring their tapes or discs to
City Hall for approval. The record-
ing would then be given to the
information technology depart-
ment and put into an available time
slot on the channel. The city does
not provide cable equipment or
cameras to citizens.
City Attorney Tammi Bach said
later that the reason for Czymbor's
proposed cable access policy is
because right now the city does


years ago we had a pipe running
from there," but in years since the
marina has contracted with anoth-
er fuel company. "We can control
our destiny if we keep things on
our property," he added.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor pointed out that in 2004
the city commission adopted a
report saying underground tanks
would be a better choice. He said
the underground system would
meet all the city's needs and rec-
ommended the commission
approve it.
"I guess my concern is it's very
rarely a government project gets
completed within its budget," said
Gerrity. He said the commission
should explore "an alternative that
costs less. ... We don't know what
this will cost and I'm not happy
with that."
"We have to rely on the people
who drive the car," said Sapp. "We
have to rely on their expertise."
Resident Lynn Williams said
he disagreed with the marina's
fuel farm strategy. He said that at
40,000 gallons, the tanks were
much too big for the city marina
because "fuel doesn't turn that
quickly." "As far as running pipes,
we have pipes running all over the
city," he added. Plus, he said, there
is always a risk when putting fuel

not have any policy.
She noted that PEG policies are
standard for municipalities that
want to exclude religious, political
and commercial broadcasts from
their public access stations. Bach
also said that without a regulatory
policy, cities cannot by constitu-
tional law regulate content unless
it is obscene or pornographic.
Cable companies, she added,
are franchised through municipal-
ities because cable lines run
through public rights of way and
also feed out onto private property.
Cable companies also pay cities

right to do business in the city.

"I hate to delay the project any
longer," said Gerrity. "I don't have
faith that this is the right project
for us."
Czymbor said city staff could
"come back and present two or
three alternatives" for the fuel
farm, but would need to retain
some services to do the study.
Those services, however would
come at some cost to the city, to
consult and review any new proj-
ects.
Sapp pointed out that since the
commission had known about the
underground tanks since 2004, the
information should not have been
a shock to anyone.
"I just don't remember it, " said
Gerrity. 'That doesn't mean it has-
n't been discussed."

Surgeon general honors


local health authorities


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News Leader
Florida's first surgeon general
visited Nassau County on Tuesday
to salute local public health offi-
cials and to promote her statewide
initiative.
Ana M. Viamonte Ros culmi-
nated her visit with an award pres-
entation to the Nassau County
Health Department, and its com-
munity partners, recognizing the
department's completion of Project
Public Health Ready.
The award "reflects the work
the health department did to
improve ourselves," said health
department Director Dr. Eugenia
Ngo-Seidel, adding, "It really rec-
ognizes the achievements, not only
of the health department, but of
the whole community working
together to ensure that our com-
munity's safer and more prepared
for disasters."
Ros, the state's "leading advo-
cate for better health care," has vis-
ited 40 of Florida's 67 counties on
a public health tour known as the "3
Ps Tour." The tour emphasized pre-
vention, preparedness and person-
al responsibility as the tools to
healthier living.
Ros spent the morning at Yulee
Elementary School, where she
observed a childhood obesity pre-
vention program.
"The best part of my job is to go
to the trenches," Ros told the gath-


ering of public health employees,
"to the folks that really matter, and
who we really need to fight for, and
to thank them and to acknowledge
them."
"We're honored to have
Florida's first surgeon general here
to give us this award as a repre-
sentative of the Florida Department
of Health," Ngo-Seidel said. "I can't
think of anyone who would be a
better face or voice for public
health."
Nassau County is one of 16
counties in the state to earn the
"Public Health Ready" national
recognition administered through
the National Association of County
& City Health Officials, the Centers
for Disease Control and the state
Department of Health. The two-
year process required public health
employees and first responders to
receive training in core competen-
cies. The program also required
the completion of an emergency
preparedness plan.
In addition, to demonstrate
response to emergency incidents,
the county's public health staff and
emergency management officials
practiced the execution of the plan
through "full functional exercises"
and simulations, or mock exercis-
es, related to a potential disaster.
"It's been a wonderful partner-
ship," Seidel said. "It's been a chal-
lenging one to make sure we're
meeting national standards."

Voters back property tax reform


McCain, Clinton top ballot,


MICHAEL PARNELL
News Leader
Nearly half of Nassau County's
registered voters turned out to
vote on an amendment to the
Florida constitution that will limit
property taxes and to vote for their
favorite presidential candidate.
Nassau County voters favored
Amendment 1, the property tax
reform plan, by the same margin
as state voters - 64 percent to 36
percent. A majority of 60 percent of
the voters was required for the
constitutional amendment to
become law.
State Republicans favored U.S.
Sen. John McCain in Tuesday's
presidential preference primary
election, but Nassau County
Republicans preferred former
Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
State Republicans gave McCain
36 percent of their votes and
Romney 31 percent. Former New
York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who
dropped out the race Wednesday,
received 15 percent; former
Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee got
14 percent; and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul
3 percent.
The Nassau vote:
Romney ~~ 36 percent
McCain ~~ 30 percent
Huckabee ~~ 20 percent
Giuliani ~~ 9 percent
Paul~~ 3 percent
The winner-take-all primary
assures McCain will receive all 57
of Florida's delegates at the GOP
convention in St. Paul, Minn., this
summer.
Both Florida and Nassau
County Democrats preferred U.S.


Sen. Hillary Clinton in their pres-
idential primary.
State Democrats gave Clinton
50 percent of the vote, to 33 per-
cent for U.S. Sen. Barack Obama
and 14 percent for former U.S. Sen.
John Edwards, who dropped out of
the race Wednesday.
The Nassau vote:
Clinton ~~ 40 percent
Obama~~ 30 percent
Edwards ~~ 26 percent
The national Democratic Party
has ruled that none of the candi-
dates will receive delegates to the
national convention in Denver this
summer because Florida moved
its primary to January in violation
of party rules.
There were nearly 21,000 votes
cast, or 49 percent of the 42,715
registered voters in Nassau
County.
Complete county vote totals are
available at www.votenassau.com.
State vote totals are available at
http://enight.dos.state.fl.us.
The property tax amendment
will provide an additional $25,000
homestead exemption on local
government taxes, but not
school taxes. The homestead
exemption will now be portable if
homeowners move. There will be
a new $25,000 exemption for tan-
gible business property. The annu-
al increase in non-homesteaded
property will be limited to 10 per-
cent.
Statewide, the amendment won
the support of 2.6 million voters, or
64 percent, to 1.5 million, or 36
percent, opposed. In Nassau
County, 13,185 voters said Yes,
while 7,477 voted No.

County takes over driver's license office


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News Leader
The office of the Nassau County
Tax Collector has assumed respon-
sibility for collecting driver's license
fees. The tax collector now serves
as an "exclusive agent" of the state.
"Half of the tax collectors in the
state already provide the service
for their counties," Tax Collector
John Drew said. "It's new for
Nassau County, not for the state."
The change means expanded
services in Yulee at the 86130
License Road facility that the tax
collector will acquire per Florida
statute. The tax collector will pro-
vide services related to license
plates, tags and titles at that site.
The tax collector is acquiring
the 7,000-square-foot building,
including a five-acre test track, from
the state, "with no cost to the tax-
payers of Nassau County." The
package includes a 35-year lease
"at no charge," Drew said. Contract
negotiations are complete and a
lease pending.
Drew intends to open a satellite
office inside the courthouse on
Centre Street in Fernandina Beach
for driver's license renewal. His
current staff will receive training to
provide the new services. Drew's
long-term goal is to expand driver's
license renewal service to the coun-
ty's West Side.
The tax collector began receiv-
ing driver's license fees effective
Jan. 7, when employees of the


- Department of
Highway Safety
and Motor
' pVehicles official-
ly became tax
collector employ-
ees.
Chapter
322.135 of the
Drew Florida Statutes
permits the state
to "authorize any
or all of the tax collectors in the
several counties of the state .., to
serve as its agent for the provision
of specified driver's license servic-
es."
The statute also permits tax col-
lectors to become exclusive agents
and lease state property. Exclusive
agents serve as full-service driver's
license bureaus, administering
exams and driving tests in addition
to issuing licenses, identification
cards and processing renewals.
The tax collector bears all costs
associated with providing those
services. Drew estimates the oper-
ating expense for his office will be
about $235,000. 'That's a generous
estimate," he said.
The figure includes salaries,
benefits, overhead, such as utili-
ties, and insurance costs, he said.
Drew said his office expects to
generate about $192,000 in rev-
enues from licensing services,
based on state estimates.
Drew, who co-chairs the Florida
Tax Collectors Association Drivers
License Committee with Diane


Nelson of Pinellas County, assumed
the new responsibility ahead of a
proposed bill currently before the
state Legislature.
"I've stepped up to the plate and
agreed to do it early," he said,
explaining, "I was told that if I took
over functions of the driver's license
agency I would receive" the test
track and building on License Road
"at no cost" to county taxpayers.
"If I had waited to see what the
final outcome would be" in the
Legislature, "there was no guaran-
tee that the building would come
with the deal."
When he considered the
prospect of 16-year-olds taking their
driving test on SR 200, he realized,
"That would be very bad for the
safety of the children, the employ-
ees of Nassau County and the gen-
eral driving public," Drew said.
He believes the new legislation
would "make it where there would
not be any unfunded mandates
passed to county tax collectors,"
Drew said
Under the current statute, of
the $20.25 driver's license renewal
fee, $5.25 remains in Nassau
County and $15 goes to the state,
where it is split between the

said.

Music world can be a real zoo


I figure I was around 10 years
old when we discovered that I
have a tin ear. For reasons
known only to her, my moth-
er appropriated her father's
unused violin and decreed that I
was going to learn how to play it.
She somehow found a teacher in
the middle of all of those Indiana
cornfields, and therein passed
one of the more unpleasant years
of my young life.
I was smack-dab in the middle
of my tomboy stage, so Mom
would have to frog-march me
from of the never-ending neigh-
borhood saga Cowboys and
Indians to the quiet corner of my
bedroom where the violin await-
ed my tender ministrations. I
never made the wretched thing
sound any better than an unhap-
py feline, and, according to my
parents' version of it years later, I
strangled that cat at a quarter
note flat.
Fortunately for everyone, we
moved about a year into my vio-
lin career. The instrument and
lessons were mercifully left

unmentioned
as we settled
into our new
life in
.Virginia. To
this day, I do
S not know
- who was
more
relieved -
.Cara Curtin me or Mom
and Dad.
All of
CITY these memo-
SIDEBAR ries came fly-
ing back


when I met Dee Stahlcup and
Barbara Zacheis for coffee the
other day.
Our conversation made me
realize that what I'd needed all
those years ago was the
Instrument Zoo. These two
ladies head up this program that
visits every fourth grade in
Nassau County. Its purpose is to
introduce our children to the
wonderful world of music, and
from the sound of it (you should
pardon the expression), the pro-


gram is a rousing success.
Dee laughed as she told me
about one fourth-grader who
hoped he'd have to repeat
the grade so he could come to
the Instrument Zoo again the
next year!
I received a much-needed
refresher on musical instru-
ments as we talked. Barbara
explained that all four families of
instruments - brass, woodwind,
strings and percussion - are dis-
played on tables around the
classroom so the children can
pick them up to examine them
and, ultimately, to play them.
These instruments come
from all over. Sometimes our
school bands give the Zoo instru-
ments that they're retiring, and
sometimes people donate money
so the Zoo can make purchases
to increase its collection. And
every once in a while, local musi-
cians like Warren Hard donate
some of their own instruments
they no longer need. Warren was
a percussionist in Broadway
bands for years, and has gra-


27) g72


ciously passed along some of his
inventory. Dee and Barbara have
made a wonderful connection
with a couple of places in
Jacksonville that repair and
maintain the instruments so each
child can be given a well-working
piece.
Dee and Barbara said that
sometimes the classroom
becomes very quiet as the chil-
dren see the instruments; for
many, it's the first time they've
been this close to them, and it's
certainly the first time many of
them have had the opportunity
to pick one up and play it.
Every child is shown how to
hold the instrument, how to
make its moving parts move, and
how to make it make a sound.
Even the most shy or reluctant
child gets caught up in this
musical adventure; Barbara
told me that they've never had a
child refuse to participate, and
they've never had a child misbe-
have - they're all too busy dis-
covering this wonderful new
world.
January and February
are the busy time for the Zoo;
volunteers will visit every
fourth grade in the county dur-
ing these two months - plus host
at least one session devoted to
our home-schooled children.
As you can imagine, the
Instrument Zoo works only
because of these volunteers, and
that's your cue to come on in and
join the fun. You don't have to be
a musician to work with the Zoo;
you'll get the training you need
so you can help the kids put the
right finger on the right button,
key, valve, string or pedal. Now's
the time to call Dee at 277-9678
to donate your time, talent
and/or musical instrument. And,
of course, money is always wel-
come.
I was in high school before I
realized that my body compen-
sated for my tin ear by giving me
a great sense of rhythm.
Unfortunately, girls weren't
drummers back in the Dark
Ages; I sure could have used
the Instrument Zoo to show me
what to do when the rhythm
of everyday life started me tap-
ping.

Finding good,


underneath


Perusing through the
women's undergarment
section of Wal-Mart, I
saw a man looking at
them as well. We were both
checking out the cotton, comfy
kind. Why would a guy be shop-
ping for a woman in the more
utilitarian section, rather than to
pick out the
pretty type
for a "gift"?
These
thoughts
run
through my
mind in the
course of
two sec-
Jennifer onds and
Emmons frankly it's
none of my
business, I
SUNNY should be
SIDE UP minding my
own.
He then says, "Excuse me,
this is kind of a silly question,
but do these run in the same
sizes as regular clothes?"
Feeling for him, because
there is nothing normal about
the way underwear are sized. It
is a phenomenon in the clothing
industry that makes absolutely
no sense. This is not sexist, just
fact, that a man trying to figure
it out without a female's help is
taking a huge gamble.
"What size does she wear?"
He replies, "A one or zero."
Working hard to keep my com-
posure - I came out of the
womb bigger than that - my
mind shoots off in another
direction. Why is he looking at
the "uncute" undies if his wife is
so little? She can wear the extra
cute ones.
He went on to say that she
was in the hospital and had
asked him to run home and
pick up some of her personal
effects. "I thought it would be
nice to bring her some new
ones instead."
Awwwwww. A good guy.
There are lots of them out
there.
We look for her size, but
they only go down to a size 3,
which in underwear language is
more like a 5 and once again, I


What's that man doing
looking at 'undies'?


am at a loss, never having
looked for sizes smaller than
that.
He was obviously uneasy
being in the women's section
and said his five-year-old daugh-
ter corrects him all the time,
"Dad, they are panties, not
underwear." I told him it was all
the same to me. With three
boys, we don't often discuss the
nature of what girls call their
underrs" which is what we tend
to call Fruit of the Loom in our
home.
To no avail, we finished our
search for the tee-tiny undies
and he found a saleslady who
led him to the juniors depart-
ment. Oh, now that makes
sense. Apparently, my life expe-
rience hasn't taken me to that
department in many a year.
I couldn't help but think
about the way we quickly judge
others without even meaning to.
Here this thoughtful husband
was trying to do a sweet ges-
ture for his wife and my mind
was wondering what in the
world was he doing.
My fleeting thoughts about
this guy weren't intended to be
judgmental, but I was inadver-
tently judging him, just the
same. The thoughts were not
filled with malice, but shouldn't
I be focusing on my own life
and not why someone else was
shopping for the same thing as
me?
Judgment comes in all
shapes and sizes, in our faces
and behind our backs. No mat-
ter what form it takes, the bite
stings. It's a sneaky little beast
that slips its way into our minds
if we don't remind ourselves to
keep it at bay.
Dig deeper, give folks a
chance. If you seek to find the
good, you probably will.

FREE "LIVING TRUST" SEMINAR

Find out how you may be able to

Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly - Without Probate Fees & Minimum Estate Taxes


If you own a home...or have assets worth at least $100,000...you owe it to
yourself - and your family - to get the facts on living trusts. If you think
you're protected with a simple Will...think again...In many cases a Will guar-
antees your estate will go through probate, which means your family will not
be able to take possession of your estate for many months or even years!

Plus, if your entire estate, which includes life insurance and retirement plans,
is over $1,000,000 in 2011, your family may owe estate taxes which could


amount to 41-55% of the value of your estate. This means that your family
may have to sell some assets just to pay the estate taxes!

A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize estate taxes. Plus, a living
trust may protect your estate if you become incapacitated during your life-
time by avoiding a guardianship. This means your estate may be managed
as you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit. To find out more
about the benefits of living trusts attend one of these free seminars.

Its time for


governments


to do business

We're not surprised that members of
the Nassau County School Board
don't believe that evolution is a fact.
Our local governments haven't
evolved much - they're closer to the Stone Age
than the 21st century.
But we believe even Fred Flintstone would
hear the message that state and local voters are
sending loud and clear to local governments - be
more efficient with our tax dollars, or we'll
deprive you of them.
Nearly two-thirds of Floridians voted to
approve an amendment to the state constitution
Tuesday that limits property tax income for local
governments. The same majority of Nassau
County voters, 64 percent, favored the amend-
ment.
Get the message yet?
Expect serious whining from elected and
appointed officials and the usual gamesmanship
from our local bureaucracies. When state law
forced Nassau County to cut its budget modestly,
our libraries promptly eliminated subscriptions to
all magazines and newspapers, cutting a vital
service to their patrons rather than rooting out
inefficiencies.
If governments want to know how to cut costs,
ask any business owner or manager in this coun-
ty. Every single one is cutting costs because of
the slowing economy. But what business could
survive if it eliminated vital services rather than
tackle other, less visible expenses?
It's not easy, but it can be done.
The budget cutting ahead for the city of
Fernandina Beach and Nassau County will test
the mettle of elected officials and the top man-
agers, City Manager Michael Czymbor and
County Coordinator Ed Sealover. It's up to
Czymbor and Sealover to hold their department
heads accountable, and to make cuts that harm
the public least.
As this new day in local government evolves,
we'll keep our readers apprised of how they do.
Like the school board, we have faith, but we await
the hard facts of local government evolution.


COMMUNITY THANKS

Big appetites
The Pirate wrestling team would like to thank the
owners, management and staff of Barbara Jean's
restaurant for their generous donation of dinner
and service to our team on Tuesday night. We had
a great time eating together, which was made even
better by the fantastic food and attentive service by
the staff. We were made to feel more than welcome
as we came inside with our big appetites and the
same as we left, although without the hunger for any
more food.
We often talk about our team as an extension of
our families and how those families work for and
with each other. Thank you for showing us that
this extension also reaches out to the community as
well. That support is the latest act of generosity
and caring by our community for our young men.
We are preparing for our big district tournament.
Thanks to Barbara Jean's we are better able to
understand that we are not alone in our efforts nor
will we be alone in our triumphs. They have helped
teach these young men a valuable lesson.

Our kids are voted off the island


across the border in South Georgia, all
I ever wanted to do was live here in
Fernandina. My family was here all the
time. My dad even considered a job transfer here.
We kids were upset when it didn't happen.
During my years growing up and in the military
and even beyond college a few years, all I could
think was that some day I'd make it back here to
live. My heart has always been in this town and on
this beach. I'm as in love with it as I was the first
time I remember playing in the surf in front of our
$25 a week rental cottage. That same heart breaks
every time I see what's happening here.
My kids, young adults just finishing college and
starting families and careers, would also like to live
here. Yours probably would, too. Mine mostly grew
up playing on the same beach that took my breath
away more than 50 years ago. They'd like to give
their kids that special gift. Unfortunately, it'll proba-
bly never happen.
It's a damn shame and a sin.
Greed, mismanagement and skulduggery have
conspired to rob my kids and most of your kids of
the chance to stay home or come back home. If you
think I'm rash to throw around words like skuldug-
gery, look around. Better yet, sniff around. The
stink in the air here ain't always the paper mill.
It should anger you that kids whose families
have been here for generations have to live "across


the bridge" these days to
make ends meet. And even
that's getting dicey. Think
about it. The great-great-
grandchildren, great-grand-
children, grandchildren and
children of the many families
A w who put their sweat equity
into this little island for so
many years and helped make
it what it is are literally being
shown the door. How's that
Joe Palmer for gratitude?
. ... . - Increasingly, people who
can afford to live here buy up
CUP OF all the real estate they can get
JOE their hands on, level the exist-
ing mom and pop homes,
build monuments to their yuppie or privileged egos
and don't care a whit about calling Fernandina
Beach home. Their houses sit empty month after
month. Some are occupied only a couple of weeks a
year.
I don't have a problem with people owning vaca-
tion homes. It's the kind of people doing it these
days that bother me. Our knucklehead county and
city officials and local taxing authorities hold the
door open wide for the rootless, moneyed investor
types and chase off the regular residents and busi-
ness owners with property taxes that ought to be


considered felonious.
Say you own a shop. Last year, you paid five
grand in property taxes. This year, you get slammed
with a $5,000 increase. It doesn't take an accountant
to figure out that unless your revenue stream more
than doubled this year - which it probably didn't -
you're already in the hole through no fault of your
own. And what are you getting for this punishment?
Can't think of a doggone thing, can you? Me either.
What if you own a restaurant? You struggle to
build a business and customers. If you own the
building, you get whacked with a massive property
tax increase every year. If you rent, the landlord
gets whacked and passes the burden to you. How
much fried shrimp do you have to sell the next year
just to offset the tax increase? How long can you do
it before you go into the hot grease with the shrimp?
But you see, down on the waterfront, they don't
have those kinds of woes. The bassackward brain
trust down at City Hall doesn't lose much sleep over
allowing some to ride practically free while every-
one else has to pedal their butts off just to keep
going.
I still call this home. I wish my kids could. It's
heartbreaking.
If home is where the heart is, this town needs a
transplant.

Getreal
Get real, Historic District Council. The proposal to
give special tax credits to homes in the historic district
for making improvements is ludicrous and unfair to the
rest of us property taxpayers. The answer as to what
materials can be used on historical homes and build-
ings is simple. The product used should not change the
"character" of the home. Cement siding destroys the
integrity of historic homes no more than electricity,
indoor plumbing and toilets, city water, insulated glass,
modern-day locks and door handles, composite roof-
ing, electric door bells and so on. It's more about how
substitute materials are applied than the materials
themselves.

ReadingTV
Perhaps television can help build better readers!
I attended the recent free "Families Building Better
Readers Parent Workshop" presented by Nassau
County Schools and the Florida Department of
Education at Yulee Primary School. An excellent work-
shop - I'd give them an "A-plus"! The two hours went
too fast.
I got a number of ideas, but the one I want to share
is the easiest tool for helping children read better. It
doesn't cost time or money. Turn on the closed caption
for hearing-impaired feature on your television set.
For younger children who are not yet fluent in reading,
keep the sound on. For older, more fluent readers,
turn off the sound. Too simple? Try it - when your chil-
dren are watching that (hopefully) quality television.
Maybe we can increase the average five minutes per
night reading to three hours.

Amelia Arts Academy
I am frequently asked, "Just what is the Amelia
Arts Academy? Are you like the Chamber Music
Festival or ARIAS or what?" May I have just a small cor-
ner of the page to say that we, as all community schools
of the arts, emphasize the use of practicing artists as
teachers to provide high quality arts instruction, encour-
age access regardless of age and socioeconomic status
and sit firmly rooted in a strong social commitment to
the community.
The Academy specializes in high quality arts edu-
cation and typically goes "deep" rather than "broad."
They focus less on the presentation of the art form-cen-
tral to many organizations - and more on developing
a student's proficiency in the art form. Young or old,
novice or professional, Academy classes serve stu-
dents of all ages and levels of ability. Some classes
cater to parents with young children, others serve
school-aged students and still others invite adults of all
ages to continue to learn and grow in the arts. The
Academy is also committed to providing access to
those who could not otherwise afford lessons.
The Academy frequently collaborates with other
community organizations to include people with little
access to arts experiences, including seniors, those with
few opportunities and those with disabilities such as
clients at Head Start, ARC, "329 Place," and Nassau
County Council on Aging. The Academy is and can be
an attractive partner to housing, youth and other social
service organizations (several summers have seen
summer camps with Police Athletic League and the
"Art-in-Action" art classes in some public schools).


MIKE KEEFE/THE DENVER POST


The Academy does not discriminate on the basis of
race, religion, color or national and ethnic origin, and
admits all interested persons, regardless of artistic
aptitude or ability to pay.
The Academy does not grant degrees, thus distin-
guishing itself from other schools and higher education
institutions.
There is so much more about the Amelia Arts
Academy, which may be learned by stopping by the
Peck Community Center where the studios, rehears-
al spaces and offices are located.
The Academy is in its 16th season and is support-
ed by resources earned from lessons, by grants and by
fundraising events including the annual fund drive.
The support of the community has been overwhelm-
ing and we are grateful. Thank you for allowing me to
present this overview of the Amelia Arts Academy
with its vibrant resources and its potential benefits to
this community.

Amelia Arts Academy


'Comic opera' on AA
The prevailing attitude of the Nassau County
Commissioners concerning development impacting
upon A1A capacity must be changed.
The county commissioners agree that they made
poor decisions in the past regarding this issue, but
based upon a reading by the county attorney, they
believe that those prior poor decisions represent prece-
dence and therefore must be followed in the future
("County policy creates risk on A1A," Jan. 30). Even
when the commissioners acknowledge that by main-
taining their old positions that they are violating exist-
ing state and county law regarding capacity.
The specific issue at hand right now concerns a
stretch of AIA (from Nassauville Road to Shave bridge),
which is currently 117 percent of acceptable capacity.
Yet the commissioners see no way they can avoid
approving additional development along that stretch of
highway - in spite of that over-capacity - because of past
interpretation of the law.
Is this a comic opera we are watching? It defies all

Awomans place
I cannot express how thankful I was to read Roy
Stafford's view titled "Angry white women" (Jan. 30).
I do not wish to speak for the black population that Mr.
Stafford alludes to in his essay, but I am sure they are
all waking from their slumber, overjoyed that Roy
Stafford has attempted to educate African-Americans
on their history from the Jim Crow laws to present. I
am sure they are stunned to find out how horrible
things have transpired since the days of slavery and
segregation. I am even more embarrassed that it
appears my gender may be the root cause (or maybe
just the Clintons). I was happy that Clarence Thomas
was mentioned because you don't hear much of him
lately. He has always been a true advocate for women,
although I was shocked to hear he was black (I had-
n't noticed).
It is a good thing we have white men like Roy
Stafford to tell us our place in this world and to show
us the silliness of our ways. In response, I vow to be
less angry and more wary of those conspiring Clintons.

means that rather than


confirming infection with a test that is negative or
positive, the veterinarian must look at the whole pic-
ture: what symptoms are there, is the history typical,
etc. The virus itself remains elusive so that positive
result are meaningful in confirming infection, but
negative tests do not rule it out. The most effective
means of confirming the canine distemper virus
infection is post-mortem examination (tissue sam-
ples from a dog that has died from suspected distem-
per will yield the visualization of the virus in suscep-
tible cells).
The good news is that regularly vaccinated dogs
are adequately protected against this virus. Dogs
should be vaccinated by a licensed veterinarian. The
best way to help ensure that your dog is safe from
this potentially lethal disease is to make sure that
your pet is up to date with its yearly distemper vac-
cine. Keep your animal in a clean, well-ventilated
area, and make sure that any puppies brought into
your household have come from a clean, well-man-
aged environment, and that the mother has been
vaccinated. Begin vaccines at eight weeks to pro-
mote antibody production (earlier vaccination could
potentially neutralize the protection of the mother's
antibodies). Puppies will need two vaccines approxi-
mately three weeks apart before they will have ade-
quate antibody levels to protect them from disease.
So during this time, keep puppies close to home and
avoid any environments that have large populations
of dogs present at any one time.

Slovenia a wonderland for hikers


I have the travel itch. So when my sister,
the intrepid traveler, called with an invita-
tion, I was ready.
"How about hiking in Slovenia in May?"
came the challenge.
I was quick to say yes, but then quickly
peppered her with questions. Where on
earth was Slovenia and what specifically did
the hiking part of the trip require?
She was quick to fill in the blanks.
Slovenia is the size of New Jersey, just north
of Italy and bordered by Italy, Austria,
Hungary and Croatia. It is home to the
Julian Alps and a hiker's wonderland. To
quote the brochure:
'The alpine gem of Slovenia, one of
Europe's best-kept secrets, is a land of
majestic snow-capped mountains, glacier-
carved valleys, fairytale villages and
Venetian ports along the blue Adriatic. Its
tiny capital, stunning Ljubljana, is one of
Europe's most charming cities, nestled
below a hilltop castle. Our adventure in
Slovenia has it all, from glorious hikes in the
alpine world below the snow-capped Julian
Alps to exploration of charming mountain
towns, including Kobarid, immortalized in
Hemingway's classic novel, A Farewell to
Arms. On the sun-splashed Adriatic Coast,


Dickie Anderson


FROM THE
PORCH


the Renaissance-era
port of Piran beckons
us with its
labyrinthine streets
and waterfront caf6s.
Join us to discover
Slovenia, an enchanti-
ng and untouched
corner of Europe with
a welcoming culture
and world-class hik-
ing."
What's not to love?
Maybe the hiking.
My sister, a seasoned
hiker, is quick to tell
me not to worry. The
Big Guy and I like to


bike and walk, but nothing we do is even
close to hiking. Hiking implies altitude as
well as distance. When did you last see a hill
in Florida? The closest thing to a hill in our
neighborhood is the arching bridge that
crosses the Intracoastal Waterway. Not too
picturesque or safe.
When challenged and traveling what
does one do? Invest in gear, of course. First
purchase, for me, had to be new hiking
boots. I abandoned my favorite well-sea-


soned boots on my last adventure in South
Africa. After several slips, our guide looked
at the bottom of my boots and pointed out
that the treads were completely worn off. It
was tough to leave the boots that had car-
ried me to the bottom of the Grand Canyon,
across England and on hikes in the
Canadian Rockies. We had been through a
lot together.
So I am training. Pulling on my new
boots, I join the Big Guy for a walk each
morning. Added to that is a commitment to
the elliptical trainer and yoga.
So I am working on getting the body in
some kind of shape, but another challenge is
to learn about the amazing part of the world
where we will be traveling. I am a frequent
flyer on Amazon.com and busy ordering
books to get me up to speed on Slovenia and
its incredible history.
What about the Big Guy? The Big Guy
loves travel, especially when he doesn't have
to do it. No long flights in seats not made for
a big guy or visiting a country he has never
heard of. No golf courses? He'll wait for the
next travel op.

GA rocks for free, clean drinking water abroad


A first for me to write about was the
"GA," girls' organization "Rock-A-Thon" at
Gray Gables First Baptist Church Jan. 24 to
benefit "Pure Water, Pure Love Fund." This
is a practical, tangible way WMU can funnel
love and support to missionaries. The goal
of this ministry is to provide missionaries
and the people they serve with clean drink-
ing water, free from disease-causing
microorganisms, at no cost to them.
Jan. 6 message of Pastor Mark Tuso:
'The Day is Coming," First Thessalonians
5:1-11. "We must live faithfully and expec-
tantly in anticipation of future judgment.
Paul's instructions reveal all three precau-
tions that everybody must take in light of
the coming judgment: Avoid the nice lie, vs.
1-3; avoid the night life, vs. 4-8; and avoid the
normal laziness, vs. 9-11.
Sunday at 6 p.m. is discipleship training
'The Big Picture Bible Study," Old
Testament, led by Brother Mark, Bob
Burgess and Tracy Sweat.
Jason Gray, minister to students at
Springhill, reflects on his work and what we
call New Year's resolutions: "We make bold
promises that we break very quickly. This
year I have resolved to lose some weight
and to train to run a marathon. Will I do it? I
hope so. I am committed to doing both. Are
the chances high I will slack off and not do
them? Unfortunately, yes. Through scripture
we are reminded of the need of commit-
ment. Sadly, through, we are, by nature, peo-
ple who break commitments and break
promises. This is a tough reality to come to
grasp.
"As I thought more about it, I realized
that this is just a reminder of our need for
Christ. We make promises that we never
keep to people and to God! If we were able
to rely on our ability, our perseverance, our
own sheer will power, we would not be in
need of God. We need Him if we are ever
going to keep commitments, because He is
the only promise keeper. When you fall
short of your resolution, remember that this
shows us our inability before God and
reminds us our utter dependency on him."
The Rev. Jeff Overton, senior pastor of
First Baptist Church, Fernandina Beach,
remarked: 'Today, Jan. 13, I feel led to share
a message on Heaven. It is part of our 'Be
Biblical' series. Many people have their own
ideas about what Heaven is like and who will


be there. Today, we will
share what God's Word
has to say on the topic
and give an opportunity
for each of us to make
sure that we have made
our reservations for
that glorious place.
There are two things I
know in my heart for
Hilda sure: Heaven exists
Higginbotham and this is not it. I pray
that God will allow you
. .. . to see just a small
HILDA'S glimpse of this glorious
HEARABOUTS place. Thanks for join-
ing us for worship."
First Baptist Good-Timers met at the
church Jan. 17 with Chairman Larry
Williams welcoming everyone.
Thelma Lewis opened with a devotional
on the power of God, followed with prayer
by Royce Lawhorne. Larry introduced Berte
McKenzie as a first-time visitor. Myra
Swinson shared some upcoming trips the
travel committee has been planning for early
spring and summer. On Feb. 14, we will trav-
el to Hilliard First Baptist for the Northeast
Florida Baptist Association luncheon. After
the blessing, everyone enjoyed potato soup,
chicken salad sandwiches and banana pud-
ding.
The .i. i. ..... I group met at the lovely
home of Karrin Johnson Jan. 24. They were
making Valentines for the college students
and shut-ins. They enjoyed great food and
fellowship also.
First Baptist Church outreach: Visitation
is in full swing Mondays at 6:30 p.m. and
faith training begins Feb. 4. For information,
contact Jeff Whitaker or the church.
The Hazel Allen Circle Group met Jan. 8
at First Baptist Church. Following their pro-
gram, they enjoyed a covered dish lunch-
eon. Their speaker was Deacon Mike
Branch. He spoke about past trips to
Honduras and the work they do there.
Another medical group has plans to go again
soon. George and Dee Dee Johns always
have the welcome mat out for church
groups to visit and do many mission jobs
there.
The First Presbyterian Church is begin-
ning its 150th year of ministry. This signifi-
cant milestone is a wonderful time to give


thanks for our historic past and to look for-
ward to the future ministry God has in store
for us. Our weekend celebration will begin
May 17 with an all-church picnic and old-
fashioned hymn sing, followed by our regu-
lar Sunday worship service schedule May
18. Invitations to join us in celebration will
be sent to former pastors, their families and
other invited guests.
The theme for our celebration will be
"Blessings." In the late 1800s, a shelter
called Baraca was established by our church
to help the sick and homeless. The Baraca
was located behind our sanctuary, and it
served an important community need.
Baraca means blessings in Hebrew.
During this New Year, there will be
opportunities for our church family to learn
of our history, to reflect and share our past
and to join others in thankful celebrations.
As we begin this journey into our past, you
will find that our blessings are indeed abun-
dant.
Events at First Baptist Church Callahan,
where Dr. Lynn Hyatt is their longtime pas-
tor: Jan. 20 was a Bible presentation of first
and second grade children. A party was held
in the Family Life Center following the serv-
ice. Brother Lynn wanted to present them
with the most important book they will ever
read. Wednesday night discipleship class:
"How to avoid marrying a jerk or jerkette."
The way to follow your heart without losing
your mind taught by Bro. Doug Hodges,
Room C202. I'ii',-p, , 1, .1 Class
Boundaries," Sundays at 5 p.m. taught by
Bro. Hodges, Room A114. Need to know
when to say no and when to say yes? This
could be the class for you!
The Martins will be in concert Feb. 29 at
7:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 the
day of the concert. Purchase tickets in
church office weekdays.
Here it is - 2008! I hope all of you had a
very merry Christmas and will have a
blessed New Year! Let me suggest a few
New Year's resolutions: Pray that we don't
put Jesus back in the closet with the rest of
the decorations and leave him there until
Easter when we bring Him out again with
our new Easter clothes; pray that all the
peace, love and joy that we felt during the
Christmas season will continue throughout

Making change for God because obedience is better than sacrifice


Streams of people began making
their way to the front. With offer-
ing envelopes in their hands and
joyful music playing, they smiled
and greeted one another as they dropped
their gifts into the large basket.
Everyone seemed so sincere and
enthusiastic at the opportunity to give;
except for me that is. I was in a real
battle. With my head hung down and
my hands gripping the chair in front
of me, I found myself wrestling with
God.
The minister had just finished giving
us a wonderful exhortation about the
privilege of partnering with God in the
building of His Kingdom.
"Just ask God what He wants you to
give," the minister had said, "and then


simply obey Him,
nothing more noth-
ing less."
That part seemed
simple enough to
me. My problem
began, however,
when I went to my
wallet to pull out the
amount I felt like
Rob God wanted me to
Goyette give. "Five dollars" is
what I believe the
". Lord had spoken to
PULPIT my heart, which, by
NOTES the way, made per-
fect sense being that
I only had a few dollars with me.
As I stared down into my open bill-


fold, it became clear I had a problem. All
I had was a $1 and a $10 bill. "That must
not have been God speaking to me," I
remember thinking, but somehow deep
inside I knew it was. It was then that the
next set of thoughts came bubbling up in
my heart. Though I've misinterpreted
God's thoughts on many occasions, deep
in the pit of my belly I knew it was Him
talking to me.
"I want you to go forward and make
change from the basket," I heard Him
say.
"Do what?" I remember thinking as I
challenged the thought.
"That's right, take the $10 bill and
make change so you can give me five."
"I'd rather just go ahead and put it all
in," I responded, as I continued gripping


the chair in front of me. "Surely $11 will
be a lot better in the offering than five," I
reasoned. But somehow, God didn't
seem to agree.
After a few minutes of pushing the
issue back and forth, I finally stepped out
into the aisle and made my way to the
front. I'm sad to report that my own
pride and concern about what people
would think about me if they saw me dig-
ging around in the offering basket, kept
me from obeying God. As I walked back
to my seat having given all that I had in
my wallet, I knew that I had not given
God what He was really after. Though
very grieved in my heart, that day I
learned an important lesson that I've
never forgotten.
God does not need our money. As a


matter of fact, He owns everything. The
truth is what He's really after is us. Our
obedience is a lot more valuable than all
our sacrifices. I'm absolutely convinced
that it's God's desire to share everything
He has with us. The problem, however,
seems to be that if we're more con-
cerned about pleasing men than we are
God, we can't really be trusted with all
that He wants to give to us. Though He
loves us either way, obedience is far bet-
ter than sacrifice. (lSam.15:22)
While it's true that giving financially to
the work of God is extremely important,
it's not ultimately what God is looking for.
He's after our hearts!

we want to be at this time next
year? If we ask these questions
now, at the beginning of the New
Year, it will help us to prioritize our
lives and make sure we are moving
towards that goal. Many of us make
New Year's resolutions each
January. The problem with these
resolutions, though, is that they
often become simply wishes and,
by the end of January, they are
gone. I prefer to look instead at
goals; things that we can work
towards day in and day out in the
year ahead. Some of the following
are my goals for church ministry in
2008: Our top priority will be hon-
oring God in all that we say and
do; we will live out our ministry,
fulfill our mission statement, with
excellence; we will give God our
best. We will spend this year focus-

Pecan tree questions answered


Q What pecan varieties
*should I plant in the
Northeast part of Florida? DP
A The University of Florida
*has done extensive
research on pecan varieties and
the highest recommendations
for Northeast Florida are for
"Moreland," "Cape Fear" and
"Elliot." These three varieties
have the
best pest
resistance
and nut
S yield. Next
in line for
Srecommen-
dation
would be
"Curtis" and
"Sumner."
Pecan trees
Becky are notori-
Jordi ously weak-
. ....tlimbed trees
but the
GARDEN three highly
TALK recommend-
ed trees
("Moreland," "Cape Fear" and
"Elliot") are strong wood trees
and all three reach maturity
early.
The strong tree characteristic
makes these pecan trees less
likely to experience branch
breakage. Trees should be plant-
ed in the dormant season, which
would mean January or
February. Soil pH should be
between 5.5 and 6.5. If the soil is
too acidic the trees may show
deficiencies in zinc and man-
ganese. Use dolomite lime to
lower the pH if a soil test indi-
cates acidic soil conditions. A
complete fertilizer (10-10-10)
should be applied during March
and June for young trees and
February and June for estab-

the UF/IFAS publication, "The
Pecan," by Dr. Crocker and Dr.
Anderson regarding proper
pruning of pecans.
"Trees at planting are nor-
mally a whip without branches.
A newly planted tree should
have between 1/2 and 1/3 of the
top removed so as to bring roots
and shoots into balance. (But
this is the only time the tops are
removed.) Some terminology is
in order.
Tree training is performed
early in the life of the tree to
form a proper tree framework.
Pecan trees should be trained to
a central leader training system.
Select a vigorous upright shoot
as your main leader and remove
adjacent shoots. This is very
important.
For commercial plantings,
lateral branches should not be


allowed to form from the newly
established central leader until a
height of five feet is achieved.
Lateral branches must be at
least five feet from the ground to
avoid their interfering with cul-
tural practices such as herbicide
spraying and mechanical har-
vesting.
Lateral limbs will become
scaffold limbs as the tree
matures. Ideally, lateral branch-
es should be selected about
every 18 inches in vertical
height and positioned in all
quadrants of the tree. To allow
the accumulation of photosyn-
thate, laterals that develop below
a height of five feet can be
retained temporarily for a year
or two, but then they should be
pruned off. Sprouts emanating
from the rootstock (below the
graft union) should be removed
as they form. Pruning as little as
necessary during the first sever-
al years will hasten tree develop-
ment. Mature pecan trees are
not routinely pruned."
Q What is the difference
.between a tree and a
shrub? BW
A That is a tough question.
SMost people go by the size
of the plant in order to deter-
mine into which category it will
best fit. However, we know the
environment can play a key role
in deciding the mature height of
a plant.
Some of the environmental
factors are sunlight, available
water, soil conditions, soil pH
and availability of soil nutrients.
In addition, one cannot ignore

genetics.
A tree or shrub has only a
certain potential to reach a maxi-
mum height, even when envi-
ronmental conditions are ideal.
So, how can we determine
whether a plant is a tree or
shrub? I am certain we could
easily get several definitions that
would be satisfactory but I am
going to use Cornell University's
definition: "Trees are woody,
perennial plants that have one
central stem, are generally more
than 12 feet in height, and nor-
mally have a distinct head.
Shrubs are woody, perennial
plants that have a number of
stems, usually produced from
near the soil line of the plant.
Shrubs are generally less than
12 feet in height but some
exceptions can reach 20 feet or
more."
It is not a perfect definition,
but it is a starting point.

Bigger is


better just


notsafer

300-pound lineman
was uncommon in
the NFL. Players of
that size were a precious
commodity. In 1985, America
fell in love with the Chicago
Bears' William 'The
Refrigerator" Perry. One of
only five players in the league
over 300 pounds, he was a
lovable guy, but also some-
what of an oddity, given the
fact that he was so large but
was also fairly agile for some-
one so freakishly large.
Carrying his team to a
Super Bowl title, he became a
phenomenon. Now he would
be run of the mill because
there are so many guys now
his size. He would find him-
self just fitting in.
According to ESPN.com,
when Bill Clinton was elected
president in 1992, there were
only 70 players in the NFL
who tipped the scales at 300
pounds. Now, that number
has grown with 455 players in
the league who better that
mark. The average weight of
that Bears' line was 274,
while the average weight of a
lineman at the 2004 NFL Pro
Bowl was 317 pounds. At this
year's Super Bowl, each and
every offensive lineman tops
the 300-pound mark.

The added weight
puts added stress
on the body, with
an increased risk
ofheart disease,
hypertension,
diabetes, stroke,
sleep apnea
and degenerative
arthritis.

While that added bulk
may good for the team, it is
certainly not good for the
body. The added weight puts
added stress on the body,
with an increased risk of
heart disease, hypertension,
diabetes, stroke, sleep apnea
and degenerative arthritis.
From an orthopedic per-
spective, carrying all that
weight is just too much over
the long term for the joints,
especially the knees, to han-
dle.
The player may have
more muscle and fat with a
resultant increase weight, but
the cartilage that lines the
joint does not increase in its
thickness. Therefore it just
has to simply bear the heav-
ier burden, and it wears out
faster. Joint replacements
are often the end result.
A study by the NFL
showed that its players are
five times more likely to suf-

of Famer and former Packer
legend Reggie White
The NFL has always pro-
moted the concept of gladia-
tors doing battle and the
American public loves the
idea of these behemoths
going at each other. The NFL
has even tied into the bigger

with Hardee's on a hamburg-
er that has two-thirds of a

DISTRICT SHOWDOWN


PHOTOS BY BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
The girls basketball teams for Fernandina Beach and Yulee high schools will meet for the
fourth time this season tonight in the District 4-3A semifinal at Ribault High School in
Jacksonville. Both teams collected wins in first-round action to advance to the semifinal. The
championship game is Saturday at 7 p.m.



Yulee, Fernandina play



for shot at district title


BETH JONES
News-Leader
One team advances to the state playoffs and the
other team's season comes to a halt tonight when the
Yulee and Fernandina Beach high schools' girls
basketball teams face off in the District 4-3A semi-
final game at Ribault. The winner advances to the dis-
trict championship Saturday and earns a berth in the
playoffs.
It will be the fourth meeting this season for the
FBHS Lady Pirates and YHS Lady Hornets. The
Lady Pirates hold a 2-1 advantage in the series.
"Hopefully we will soon be 3-1," FBHS Coach
Mike Landtroop said of the 18-5 Lady Pirates. "I am
very proud of this group and am looking forward for
the second round with Yulee (tonight)."
Yulee advanced to the semifinal with a win over
West Nassau Monday. Fernandina defeated Bolles
42-38 Tuesday to move on in the tournament.
"This was not the prettiest win but, in the end, the
Pirates are moving on to play (tonight)," Landtroop
said. "We struggled offensively for all four quarters.
Down by three at the half, the Pirates closed the gap
to one by the end of the third quarter.
"Once we took the lead midway through the
fourth quarter, we held on for the win."
Ebony Peterson was the top scorer for FBHS
with 20 points.
"Ebony struggled in the first half, made some
adjustments to her offense and came out ready to
play in the second half," Landtroop said. "Overall the
girls never gave up and kept believing.
"Bolles held India (Johnson) in check by double-
and even triple-teaming her. Other Pirates needed to


step up and fill the gap and that is exactly what
Ebony Peterson did."
In addition to her 20 points, Peterson also had 10
rebounds and two steals. Haley Tan and Johnson had
eight points apiece and Brittany Schetrompf chipped
in six. Tan had four rebounds, four assists and seven
steals and Johnson had five rebounds, two steals
and a block. Whitney Small and Julia Belcher had
four rebounds each.
Tipoff tonight is at 6 p.m. The championship
game is at 7 p.m. Saturday.
* The FBHS boys basketball team rallied in the
fourth quarter Tuesday to defeat University Christian
51-48 at Pirate Gym. The Pirates outscored the
Christians 12-4 in the fourth quarter.
"I was extremely proud of our effort against
University," FBHS Coach Matt Schreiber said. 'They
are as talented as anyone we have played this year
and we showed great resolve.
"We played well in the first half to build a lead, let
it slip away but then we refused to accept defeat. It
was a great win and at a good time with the district
tournament approaching."
The Pirates led 34-24 at halftime but UC relished
a 20-5 third quarter to take a 44-39 lead after three
periods.
Trey Kublbock led the Pirates with 13 points and
also had three rebounds, an assist and a steal. Carlos
Holcey had 10 points, 13 rebounds, four assists and
a block. Jake Brogdon had 10 points, two assists
and three steals.
The Pirates cap the regular season tonight at
home with Hilliard. They open district play at 6:30
p.m. Tuesday at Episcopal. The Pirates (No. 3 seed)
face the hosts (seeded sixth).

New head coach



sought at WNHS


DAN SHANKS
Community Newspapers
Longtime West Nassau High
School football Coach Chris
Chicken will not return as the head
coach next season.
Early last week, Hicken met
with Principal Ron Booker and
Athletic Director Johnnie Green.
During that time, Hicken said
Booker and Green told him that
the program had hit a "plateau,"
and that it was time to go in a "dif-
ferent direction."
In Chicken's last five years as
head coach, he compiled a regular
season record of 26-24. West
Nassau went to the playoffs in 2003
and 2004, but hasn't been back
since. Chicken is the second West
Side coach to be relieved of his
coaching duties. On Jan. 17, Al
Cooksey was terminated as
Hilliard's football coach and was
replaced by Paul Whittenburg.
Chicken said he was shocked by
the news.
"I was surprised, because I just
met with them a couple weeks ear-
lier, and it seemed like everything
was fine," said Hicken, who had
served as either West Nassau's
head coach or defensive coordi-
nator for the past 20 years. "No
excuses, we didn't have a great
year, but we were still two extra
points away from (a shot at) the
playoffs. We won county and I
thought we did some good things.
We just didn't have a lot of experi-
ence back.
"A lot of people don't realize
the schedule that we played and
how tough it was. But that's how it
is. I was surprised. I really was."
Green declined to elaborate on
the reasons why Hicken wouldn't
be back for his 10th season as head
coach. West Nassau lost two dis-
trict games in overtime. Had the
Warriors won those games, they
would have been tied for second in
the district with Fernandina Beach
and Keystone Heights. The three
teams would have played each
other in a shootout, with the win-
ner advancing to the playoffs.
When asked whether a playoff
berth would have changed the sit-
uation, Green said, "I can't say."
According to Green, the search
for a new coach has already begun.
"We're looking for a coach
who's willing to be with us for a
period of time, because in the
future, we feel like we've got some
capable guys on staff that may be
able to step in and take over once
another coach comes in and stays
for a while and leaves," Green said.
'That's the thought process we're
in right now. We've had some con-
tacts. I don't want to give the
names right now. But we're mak-
ing some contacts." He added that


the administration doesn't plan on
waiting around and will be very
active in its search.
Green said that down the road,
the administration would consider
promoting an assistant who's cur-
rently on the staff, but that it prob-
ably wouldn't happen next season.
"I don't think that's a foresee-
able thing for next year, but you
never say never," he said.
Chicken, a 1977 graduate of
West Nassau, was originally the
head coach from 1988-91. During
that time, he had a record of 17-23.
The best year came in 1989, when
Chicken's Warriors went 8-2. A 27-
12 loss to Bolles kept West Nassau
out of the playoffs, but the
Warriors did beat Episcopal 26-14
in a bowl game.
Following the 1991 season,
Chicken said he stepped down as
head coach, and Drew Sauls took
over. Chicken said the decision to
turn over the head coaching duties
and remain as defensive coordi-
nator was a voluntary decision.
"Coach Sauls was a friend of
mine, and I had a young family,"
Chicken said. "I enjoyed being an
assistant coach. I really did."
During the next 11 seasons,
West Nassau had four different
head coaches. After Scott Wilson's
final season in 2002, Hicken decid-
ed to apply for the head coaching
position to try and keep some con-
tinuity in the program.
"I didn't know what we would
get," Hicken said, adding that most
coaches didn't last more than three
or four years at West Nassau. "We
sort of had a revolving door."
Green said the decision to dis-
miss Hicken was a difficult one,
but he hoped that it would work
out for all parties involved.
"I want to thank Coach Hicken
for what he has done for the foot-
ball program," Green said. "He has
a passion for the game. But when
you make decisions, sometimes
decisions are good, and sometimes
decisions are bad. We just hope
the best will come out of this deci-
sion. That's what we're hoping
more than anything."
Chicken said he's not sure what
he will do next year, but wanted to
thank everyone who has support-
ed him throughout the years.
"My family's here, and that's
gotta come before any coaching
job," Hicken said. "I don't think
I'm gonna relocate. Whether I stay
(at WNHS) or not, that's some-
thing else, to be honest with you.
"I'd just like to thank all the
people that have been loyal to me.
The churches and the organiza-
tions ... have always supported us.
I'm sure they'll keep on supporting
(the team). It's not the end of the
world. There's always other stuff
out there."

Pirates on the Run set for Saturday


ED HARDEE
For the News Leader

The annual Pirates on the Run
5K/10K race is Saturday, with the
traditional picturesque race course,
colorful pirates and some new fea-
tures too.
'The more we can do to make a
race like this one unique, the bet-
ter response we'll have from run-
ners," said Deborah Dunham, race
director for the Amelia Island
Runners event. "We've been try-
ing to come up with some new
ideas to help make it even more
of a fun celebration."
Race-goers will notice the dif-
ferences before the event begins,
with a new "look" for the start/fin-
ish area in front of Fernandina
Beach City Hall on Ash Street. For
about 10 minutes before the race
begins, an aerobics expert will lead
runners and walkers in warmup
exercises, Dunham said.
"If it's a cold morning, it'll be a
good way for people to stay warm
before the race starts," she said.
Also new this year will be a live
performance of the National
Anthem by Nikos Westmoreland,
who, Dunham said, "has an amaz-
ing voice."
The 5K/10K race will start at


8:30 a.m., followed at 8:35 a.m. with
a two-mile walk through historic
downtown Fernandina Beach.
Members of the Fernandina Beach
Pirates Club will be out in force to
send runners in the right direction
as they wind through the down-
town area, east on Atlantic Avenue
and back downtown, finishing at
City Hall.
When the race is over, runners
will find another new feature this
year - free massages.
"You can't beat that after a race,"
Dunham said.
Half-mile and one-mile fun runs
for children will begin at 9:45 a.m.
with something new there too.
After the enthusiastic response to
fun runs with Santa Claus at the
running club's December race, a
pirate has been enlisted to run with
the kids Saturday - at least part of
the way.
Following those events will be
an awards ceremony at City Hall,
where plaques will be presented
to overall and age-group winners in
the 5K and 10K runs. Participants
in the 5K/10K and walk will also be
eligible to win door prizes.
Dunham is a veteran race plan-
ner, having organized events for
Girls on the Run of NE Florida with
hundreds of young runners.


'The major difference with the
Pirates on the Run is this is a com-
munity-wide event for anyone to
participate in," she said. "We had
such great response from the Girls
on the Run races, people thought
they were fun and had so many
unique elements. That's what I'm
striving for in this one.
"At the same time, it's a great
tuneup for the 26.2 With Donna
marathon and the Gate River Run.
There really is something for
everybody."
Runners and walkers can still
preregister. Entry forms are avail-
able at Club 14 Fitness and Red
Otter Outfitters in Fernandina
Beach and online at www.amelia
islandrunners.com, where online
registration is also available.
Runners and walkers can also
register on race day from 7-8 a.m.
at City Hall. T-shirts will be avail-
able on a first-come, first-served
basis while supplies last.
Further information is available
at the Amelia Island Runners web-
site or by calling 261-7398.
Proceeds will benefit youth run-
ning in this area, including Girls on
the Run of NE Florida and a new
scholarship program for graduat-
ing Nassau County high school
runners.

Work flats when tide's low


"The water temperature back in the bays and
tidal rivers is in the mid 50s," Capt. Jim Fussell
said. "However, the fishing is good when there is a
warming trend present. When the wind is blowing
from the north, it makes for tough winter fishing
conditions, particularly in the backwater bays and
rivers."
Many area backwater fishing guides are target-
ing wood this time of year, primarily the deep ends
of docks, where wood pilings are driven into the
deep sides of a river channel bottoms. A variety of
saltwater game fish will congregate during the last
few hours of the falling and the first few hours of
the incoming tide. A low tide Saturday arrives at
11:08 a.m. at the Cumberland Sound. This is an
ideal tide to rig a live shrimp to a 1/4-ounce jig
head and cast this deadly duo to the deep sides of
boat docks.
When the tide is dead low, work the many
Fernandina flats, where a shallow mud bottom
often holds winter redfish. Rig a Berkley Gulp
shrimp to a 3/0 red circle hook and cast the scent-
ed bait right into the school of mud flat, allowing
the bait to sit there motionless until a red picks up
your bait.
Sheepshead should be biting at the St. Marys
south jetty rocks during the last few hours of the
falling and incoming tides this weekend. Fish close
to the low areas of the jetty rocks with barnacles or
fiddler crabs for bait.
Black drum are still biting at the tip of the St.
Marys jetty rocks during the last few hours of the


flood tide. High tide arrives at
5 p.m.
Offshore fishermen this
weekend should find black sea
bass running in the 1- to 3-
pound class at KBY, FA and FC
fish havens. Fish on the bot-
tom with fresh local squid or
cut baits.
Capt. Bronson Stubbs
Terry Lacoss reports trolling action at
Northeast Florida's Gulf
'Stream as very slow during
ON THE recent days.
WATER "You just don't know what
to expect when you make that
70-mile run to the Big Ledge," Stubbs said. "One
trip they are jumping in the boat and the next trip
it's hard to find a fish."
Whiting fishing along the beaches of Amelia
Island may be more consistent where beach whit-
ing weighing to two pounds are running.
Sea trout fishing is closed during the month of
February.

The News-Leader encourages local anglers to sub-
mit photographs of their catches. The News-Leader
will publish them in this space on Fridays. E-mail

NEWS-LEADER/FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


'If not in all respects the ablest, he was the wisest man
in our ranks. As large, as powerful, and as black as our
good-looking Color-Sergeant, but more heavily built and
with less personal beauty, he had a more massive brain
and afar more meditative and systematic intellect. Not
yet grounded even in the spelling-book, his modes of
thought were nevertheless strong, lucid, and accurate; and
he yearned and pined for intellectual companionship..."
- Thomas Wentworth Higgins on Corp.
Robert Sutton, from Army Life in a Black
Regiment
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
n recognition of Black History Month, the
Amelia Island Museum of History is offering a
talk by Jim Longacre on the history of African-
Americans in the region.
Longacre in his presentation emphasizes just a few
of the individuals and incidents that comprise the
African-American experience on Amelia Island, which
spans about 400 years. The three African-American
heroes he talks about are Anna Kingsley, Abraham
Lincoln Lewis and Robert Sutton.
Longacre said Africans probably first set foot on
the island around 1526, when a Spanish conquista-
dor named Lucas Vazquez de
Ayllon, 25 years after Christopher
Columbus' famous voyage,
stopped here twice before trying -
to establish a colony with several
hundred people on Sapelo Island.
When that colony failed, white
settlers left many African slaves -. '
behind, who eventually joined
local Indian tribes. Longacre
After the Revolutionary War,
Amelia Island became a haven for
loyalists, both black and white, because the British
army had offered freedom to slaves who joined their
army; about 30,000 joined. During this time, the
British arranged for the island to be transferred
back to the Spanish. Some large plantations were
established, but then Congress abolished the slave
trade in 1807.
Because of its ideal location, Amelia Island even-
tually became the illegal slave trading capital of the
world.
The island also was a haven for escaped slaves
coming from South Carolina. A number of African-
Americans who made their way to Florida also
joined the Seminoles, who were actually a break-
away tribe of the Creek Nation. The Seminoles even-
tually became a tribe of many escaped slaves, called
"Black Seminoles."
In 1806 Anna Kingsley, originally from Senegal,
was purchased by a wealthy landowner named
Zephaniah Kingsley in Havana, Cuba, and was
brought to eastern Florida. She lived with him as a
wife, bearing him several children, and when she
was 18 years old he emancipated her and bought her
a plantation in Mandarin, which she owned and oper-
ated until it was attacked by Seminoles in 1812. The
couple moved back to Fernandina Beach for a time,
but eventually moved the plantation to Fort George
Island, where it has been preserved as Kingsley
Plantation, part of the National Park Service.
Robert Sutton was a slave who lived north of St.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2008, News-Leader


COMING TUESDAY

Elizabeth: The Golden Age
(Historical drama. PG-13.
114m.. 2007)
Weighed down by its splendor.
There are scenes where the cos-
tumes are so sumptuous, the
sets so vast, the music so insis-
tent, that we lose sight of the
humans behind the dazzle of the
production. But Cate Blanchett is
magnificently regal, and Clive
Owen plays a romantic, swash-
buckling, if historically inaccurate,
Sir Walter Raleigh. Directed by
Shekhar Kapur, who made the
much better "Elizabeth" (1998).
Rating: ** Y2
TheAssassination of
JesseJamesby
Coward Robert Ford
(Western. R. 160 m.. 2007)
One of the founders of the
cult of celebrity, the ruthless out-
law Jesse James (Brad Pitt)
attracts a young hero-worshipper
(Casey Affleck) whose adoration
shades into dangerous obses-
sion. A big-canvas Western with
an epic scope, sensationally pho-
tographed by Roger Deakins in
the tradition of "McCabe and Mrs.
Miller" and "Days of Heaven."
Directed by Andrew Dominik
("Chopper"), who depicts the
criminal and the coward in a
dance of death. Rating: *** 2
The Brave One
(Thriller, R. 122m. 2007)
Jodie Foster plays a radio
talker whose fiance is murdered
by muggers in Central Park.
Recovering from her own
wounds, she buys a gun for self-
protection, which turns into
revenge. This superior, percep-
tive thriller isn't a "Death Wish"
remake, but a psychological
study of a subtle understanding

Across the Universe
(Musical. PG 13,133 m. 2007)
Here is a bold, beautiful, visu-
ally enchanting musical where we
walk INTO the theater humming
the songs. Julie Taymor's "Across
the Universe" is an audacious
marriage of cutting-edge visual
techniques, heartwarming per-
formances, 1960s history and the
Beatles songbook. With Evan
Rachel Wood, Jim Sturgess, Joe
Anderson, Dana Fuchs, Martin
Luther and T.V. Carpio, who sings
"I Want to Hold Your Hand," and I
realized how wrong I was to ever
think that was a happy song. It's
not happy if it's a hand you are
never, ever going to hold. Lurking
here and there: Bono, Eddie
Izzard and Joe Cocker.
Rating: ****
The JaneAusten Book Club
(Romantic comedy. PG-13.
105m.. 2007)
Six members of a book club
read Jane Austen's six novels
over six months of their lives, in a
wise and witty romantic comedy
where Austen sometimes seems
to be advising them. You don't
have read the books to enjoy the
movie (but you may want to after-
ward). Rating: ***
2 Days in Paris
(Comedy. R. 96m.. 2007).
Julie Delpy and Adam
Goldberg play a New York
couple, she French, who wrap
up a miserable European holiday
by spending two days in Paris,
living above her parents.
Not your usual lovers-in-Paris
movie, but about two original,
quirky characters so obsessed
with their differences that Paris is
almost a distraction.
Written, directed, co-pro-
duced, edited and scored by
Delpy; when a woman takes that
many jobs, we slap her down for
vanity. When a man does, we call
him the new Orson Welles.

Dead Body."

ghost and a
psychic bat-

CINEMA


W y is nobody utterly
in awe of ghosts in
W "Over Her Dead
Body" and so many
other ghostcoms? Here is a
supernatural manifestation from
another realm, and everybody
treats it as a plot device. The
movie even drags in a Catholic
priest, who seems bewilderingly
ignorant of
b his church's
beliefs about
ghosts (they
S don't exist)
and treats
the situation
as an oppor-
tunity for
counseling.
The
Roger setup: It's
Ebert the wedding
- ....- day of Henry
and Kate
UNIVERSAL (Paul Rudd
PRESS and Eva
SYNDICATE Longoria).
She's a Type
A perfectionist who races mani-
cally around the reception
venue, straightening place set-
tings, adjusting decorations, and
flying into a rage at the ice sculp-
tor (Stephen Root) who has
delivered an ice angel - without
wings! She orders him to take it
back and bring her one with
wings, which, as everybody
knows, all angels possess. He
argues reasonably that you can't
just stick wings on an ice sculp-
ture. In a tragic accident involv-
ing the sculpture, Kate is killed.
Flash forward a decent
amount of time and Henry, still
in mourning, is informed by his
sister, Chloe (Lindsay Sloane),
that it's time for his life to begin
again. He should start dating. He
won't hear of it. He's still in love
with Kate. She persuades him to
visit Ashley (Lake Bell), a psy-
chic she knows. He does so. Is
she a real psychic? Some-times.
She begins to get vibes. So does
he. Neither one needs to be psy-
chic to realize they are falling in
love with each other.
I guess it's all right for psy-
chics (as opposed to psychia-
trists) to date their clients, but


Ashley seeks advice. She gets it
from Dan (Jason Biggs), her
partner in a catering business.
Also from Father Marks
(William Morgan Sheppard),
who also doesn't know that his
church doesn't believe in psy-
chics. (Was he ordained by mail
order? The church teaches that
consulting a psychic is a sin,
although it doesn't totally rule
out info from the other side, sug-
gesting it could be disinforma-
tion from Satan.) Anyway, mean-
while ... eek! The ghost of Kate
appears, none too pleased that
another woman has designs on
her man. She intends to sabo-


Cassandra's Dream
(Drama. PG-13.108 minutes)
Woody Allen's latest uses a
plot very similar to Lumet's
"Before the Devil Knows You're
Dead," to less effect. Colin Farrell
and Ewan McGregor play broth-
ers strapped for cash who are
asked by an uncle (Tom
Wilkinson) to commit a murder
for him. Good supporting work by
HayleyAtwell as the babe
McGregor is trying to impress,

tage their romance.
What happens then? Kate
looks completely real, although
she has no material presence
and can walk through walls, etc.
I always wonder why walls are
meaningless to such beings, but
they never fall through floors.
Do elevators go up without
them? Never mind. The plot
plays out as you would expect it
to, as the amazing presence of a
ghost is effortlessly absorbed
into the formula plot. If it were
me and a ghost, I'd put my per-
sonal agenda on hold and ask all
sorts of questions about the
afterlife. Wouldn't you?

and by Sally Hawkins as Farrell's
worried girlfriend, but the ending,
while plausible, is curiously
unsatisfactory, and Allen doesn't
seem at home with his London
Cockneys. Rating: **
Cloverfield
(Horror. PG 13. 80 minutes)
Six yuppies flee from a tower-


Heaven, in this movie, is rep-
resented in the standard way:
Everything is blindingly white,
and everyone is garbed in white,
even an angel (Kali Rocha) who
has, by the way, no wings. Well
of course it doesn't. Being a pure
spirit, it has no need to fly. Kate
switches back to a conventional
wardrobe for her sojourns here
below. How would I depict heav-
en? As a featureless void with
speaking voices. I haven't decid-
ed about subtitles.
Even in a movie with a ghost,
the hardest thing to believe is a
revelation that Dan makes to
Ashley. They have worked
together five years, and yet she
is astonished. I will leave the rev-
elation for you to discover, only
adding that I believe it would be
impossible for Dan to work five
years in the catering industry
without his secret being obvious
to everyone.
Consider for a moment how
this movie might play if it took
itself seriously. Would it be bet-
ter than as a comedy? I suspect
so. Does the premise "her ghost
turns up and fights the new
romance" make you chuckle?
Me neither. It's the kind of angle
that could seem funny only at a
pitch meeting. Not only have we
been there, done that, we didn't
want to go there, do that in the
first place.


ing monster that is destroying
Manhattan; one of them carries a
video camera, and the entire
movie is shot "queasy-cam" style.
Undeniably scary, especially in
the first 45 minutes when we
don't know quite what is causing
the crisis. Produced by J.J.
Abrams, creator of TV's "Lost."

TheMovieAnswerMan

ROGER EBERT
Universal Press Syndicate

Q I'm curious about the viral marketing cam-
. paigns for many big-budget movies (such as
"Cloverfield," as well as the "Batman Begins"
sequel "The Dark Knight"). 'The Dark Knight"
used websites that included puzzles in order to
unlock stills or pictures from the movie. One
allowed people to enter their e-mail addresses to
get a coordinate. With the coordinate, they could
enter it at the website and remove a pixel from a
vandalized picture of Aaron Eckhart (as Harvey
Dent from the film). As more people did this, more
pixels were removed, and at the end, the first photo
of the late Heath Ledger as the Joker was revealed
underneath.
Besides this, there have been scavenger hunts
that would ultimately end in more photos being
released and lead to websites revolving around the
movie's events and mythology. Do you believe that
more studios will use this tactic to market their
product? - Jeremy Flores, Los Angeles
A "Viral marketing" is a term referring to a
* strategy that tries to involve a movie's target
audience in talking up a movie among their friends.
They tell others about the websites, the audience
grows, word-of-mouth spreads and the campaign
rolls under its own momentum. It is essentially a
practical application of Richard Dawkins' theory of
"memes," which are to ideas as genes are to heredi-
ty. He argues that certain ideas, beliefs, songs,
images, superstitions spread from mind to mind


and, like genes, the hardiest survive.

Q I was stunned by the death of Brad Renfro on
.Jan. 15. But what stunned me even more was
how little news there was about his death. Is Renfro
just not newsworthy? What gives? -Jerry Roberts,
Birmingham, Ala.
A The tragic loss of Brad Renfro was low-profile
. because he was a private person, not fodder
for the celebrity info mills. In contrast, an
Associated Press exec recently alerted reporters
that Britney Spears was a "big story," and the fact
that AP is now preparing an obit on Spears got
more coverage than the death of the fine actor
Renfro.
The public self-destruction of such as Spears,
Amy Winehouse and others has become a sick
media circus. Shamefully, the media is obsessed
with scandal, gossip and trivia, and is alienating the
serious and grown-up public.

Q I've heard you criticize the Teenage Mutant
*Ninja Turtles for only being a collective
group and not having any real character distinction
as individuals, aside from their weapons and being
color-coded. I'm not a fan of the Teenage Mutant
Ninja Turtles myself, but I found it kind of funny
that they each have their own separate article on
Wikipedia. - Will Lugar, Tulsa, Okla.
A Good gravy! Leonardo alone has an entry of
. 3,006 words! And forget about the starring
turtles: Wiki has descriptions of 155 supporting
characters!

Q I was reading some of the reviews of
. "Cloverfield" and wondering why every


review of a disaster movie must refer to 9/11. The
Japanese have made dozens of movies about the
destruction of Tokyo in the years since the atomic
bomb. Is America as traumatized about 9/11 as the
Japanese are about the atomic bomb, so that we
must now refer to it every time a movie featuring
large-scale destruction comes out? Producer J.J.
Abrams mentioned he saw Godzilla toys while in
Japan and decided America needed its own "mon-
ster." That's all there is to it. - Eric Paquette,
Sherwood Park, Alberta
A.I'm not sure we got a monster much different
.than Godzilla, but I know why the reviews
referred to 9/11. There is a shot of people fleeing
from a cloud of smoke and debris after the collapse
of a skyscraper that is an unmistakable reference to
TV footage on that tragic day.

Q What do you think of the controversial
Redesign of Rotten Tomatoes? User reaction
seems to be running 10-to-1 against. - Greg Nelson,
Chicago
A. It's rotten. A nearly perfect site has been
-.junked up, tamed down and made nearly
unusable. Also anemic and ugly. What once took
two or three clicks now takes five or six, perhaps an
attempt to artificially inflate hits. I hope it listens to
the user outcry and does what Salon.com did a few
years ago: Bite the bullet, admit the error and
revert to the old design.
I recently looked up a Sundance film, was able to
see its Tomatometer (two favorable reviews, one
not), then was completely unable to find a way to
get to any of the three reviews. The typeface of the
review summaries, when you do find them, is so
small it's unreadable.


This is amazing: Countless users complain about
the ALL CAPS, and the editor responds that it's fine
on Firefox and ALL CAPS only on Internet Explor-
er. Is he seriously saying they unleashed this Beta
version without even LOOKING at it on Explorer?

Q In your review of "Memoirs of a Geisha," you
.quote Oscar Levant as having said: "I've been
in Hollywood so long, I knew Doris Day before she
was a virgin." I laughed at first, then realized I did-
n't know what I was laughing at.
The association of virginity and Doris Day is
indeed funny because of her famously clean image,
but I am not sure what Oscar Levant's joke is.
Assuming he was being facetious and hyperbolic,
wouldn't his words imply that she lost her virginity
quite young, which is something any film fan would
know is just not possible given her image?
Does it mean that she remained a virgin until,
let's say, around the age of 26 and during this time
Oscar got his foot in the business? Or could it pos-
sibly mean that she lost her virginity at, say, 18 or
so, which would imply that Oscar was around about
eight years longer in the business had she not been
a virgin? - Michael Green, Upland, Calif.
A I'm not sure I follow your math, but I think
:.Levant meant, "I've been around so long I
knew Doris Day before she BECAME a virgin." We
confuse a lively, spirited and gifted performer (who
was touring as a singer with the Les Brown orches-
tra at 15) with her image in countless movies.
As a callow young critic, I joined in the derision
of her image, but later sincerely apologized. The
fact is, Doris Day was a great and talented movie
star, with a singing voice clear as a bell.
