News Leader on it."
Local residents packed City
Hall Tuesday night, mostly to sup-
port a resolution urging freshwater
restoration of Egans Creek
Greenway. And city commissioners
were convinced they should expe-
dite the process of converting it
back to fresh water.
The commission voted 5-0 to
urge the St. Johns River Water
Management District to expedite
restoration of the wetlands south of
Jasmine Street where trees are
dying, possibly from saltwater
Commissioner Ron Sapp com-
mended residents for "taking own-
ership" of the issue, saying, "I knew
we needed a citizenry to move the
The wetlands south of Jasmine
Street, part of Egans Creek
Greenway, were altered in 2003 by

a real danger to our community ifthese trees catch

a mismanaged Florida Department
of Transportation mitigation proj-
ect that allowed salt water to infil-
trate the freshwater habitat. More
than 50 acres of maple trees and
other flora have died as a possible
result of the infiltration.
FDOT admitted culpability and
agreed to restore the area either to
fresh or saltwater. Citizens at pub-
lic hearings previously told the city
commission they prefer restora-
tion to a freshwater habitat.
But restoration of the freshwa-
ter wetlands has been delayed by
local resident Clinch Kavanaugh,
who filed a petition last fall block-
ing FDOT from getting a permit for
the water management district to
stop the saltwater intrusion.
Residents who attended the
Tuesday meeting, many of them
owners of property adjacent to the
creek, were adamant about the city
taking more aggressive action to
fix the Greenway.
Resident Paul Condit said the
Sea Groves and Ocean Oaks sub-
divisions were the "most affected
by what's happening in the
Greenway." He urged those pres-
ent to write to the water manage-
Some residents, such as Tom
Cote-Merow, wanted the sea gates
closed immediately that is allowing
salt water into the area.
"Why can't we close (the gates)
and stop the destruction?" asked
Cote-Merow. "We've waited too
long ... the government is out of
control, without regard for the tax-
payers of Fernandina Beach."
Jim Knight, a spokesmen for
FDOTwho attended the meeting,
said the department had to be care-
ful of large fish kills and other
"very severe adverse conse-
quences" if the gates were closed.
He also noted that the department

Florida Department of Education
Board members Donna
Callaway, Akshay Desai and Robert

Board members Phoebe

Linda Taylor voted to approve the
revised standards with the added
Board Chairman Talmadge W.
Fair cast the deciding vote to break
The revised standards drew
debate after several North Florida
school districts, including Nassau
County's, passed resolutions oppos-
ing the revised standard's presen-
tation of evolution as fact.
Nassau Schools Superintendent
John Ruis said the vote leaves ques-
tions about how the modification
to the standards will affect science
"I'm not really sure what exact-
ly that means now as far as practice -
and instruction," he said, explaining
that the "impact on the delivery of
instruction and on what will be pre-
sented instructionally is not clear."
Ruis declined to say if the
board's actions satisfied him. "I
would like more time to see what
(the decision) really means with
regard to instruction."
A committee that included edu-
cators, scientists, business leaders
and school administrators began
developing the standards in May
following a drafting and review
The DOE convened five public
hearings throughout the state in
addition to reviewing 20,000 com-
ments received via the Internet.
During the Tuesday hearing opin-
ions of the 20 members of the pub-
lic who addressed the board were
split equally in favor of and opposed
to the revised standards as pre-
sented to the board.

science curriculum to the revised
standards beginning in the 2008-9
school year. The Florida

NEW ORLEANS - Middle-
aged women's waists aren't the
only thing that increased in the
last decade. So did their chance
of stroke. In a new study report-
ed at the American Stroke
Association's International Stroke
Conference 2008, rising obesity
rates have been linked to more
strokes among women ages 35 to
A previous analysis of stroke
prevalence rates in the United
States from 1999 to 2004 revealed
that women in their midlife years
were more than twice as likely as
men of similar age to report hav-
ing had a stroke, said Amytis
Towfighi, M.D., an assistant pro-
fessor in the Neurology
Department at the University of
Southern California in Los
To determine if this was a new
phenomenon and to explore the
potential contributions of vascular
risk factors to stroke prevalence
rates, researchers analyzed data
from the National Health and
Nutrition Surveys 1988-94
(NHANES III) and 1999-4. They
found that while 1.79 percent of
women ages 35 to 54 who partici-
pated reported having stroke,
only 0.63 percent of women the
pated in the

compared medical history vari-
ables (including smoking, dia-
betes mellitus, heart attack, high
blood pressure), medication
usage, and clinical markers.
Those included waist circumfer-
ence, body mass index, total cho-
lesterol, low density lipoprotein
cholesterol (LDL- also known as
bad cholesterol), and blood pres-
"We did not find significant dif-
ferences in presence of conven-
tional cardiovascular risk factors,
such as blood pressure, total cho-
lesterol, LDL, smoking, heart dis-
ease, high blood pressure or dia-
betes, when we compared the
two groups," said Towfighi, lead
author of the study.
Instead, women in the more
recent survey were more likely to
be using medications to control
blood pressure and cholesterol.
In fact, 14.8 percent reported
using medications to lower blood
pressure, compared to 8.9 per-
cent in the earlier survey.
"Women in NHANES 1999-4
were significantly more obese
than women a decade prior, with
an average BMI of 28.67 kg/m2
versus 27.11 kg/m2 the decade
prior," Towfighi said. BMI of 25.0
to 30.0 is considered overweight,
while BMI of 30.1 or more is con-
"In addition, women in
NHANES 1999-4 had an average
waist circumference of nearly 4
centimeters more than women in
the earlier study," Towfighi said.
Women in the later study also
had higher average glycated
hemoglobin (an indicator of poor
blood sugar control).
The researchers concluded
that although key traditional risk
factors, such as high blood pres-
sure, may not be higher today
than in the '90s, obesity and

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners voted unanimously
Tuesday to designate Egans Creek
Greenway a "stand-alone basin"
within the Northeast District of the
St. Johns River Water Management
The designation would prevent
the basin from being developed
because it cannot be "traded"
through mitigation for wetlands in
another part of the district.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
noted that, with the new designa-
tion, Egans Creek would be its own
mitigation basin, and "not looked at
as a regional basin."
"There will be no cross mitiga-
tion if it's a stand-alone basin," she
The part of the Greenway
between Atlantic Avenue and

struction in Duval County.
The city is also considering pur-
chase of a 2.76-acre parcel on
tem. Leon Perpall, owner of the
parcel, has been in the process of
developing the land for a hotel site.
Perpall has already received
permits from the St. Johns River
Water Management District and
the Army Corps of Engineers, and
is going before the city Board of
Adjustment in March for a vari-
ance hearing to fill in the wetlands.
Perpall has expressed interest
in selling the property to the city,
but is asking more than $560,000 to
cover costs he has spent develop-
ing the land.
Bach said that the city has had
(Perpall) wants for the property."
But, she said, "Perpall is not
going to accept any less than he
has spent on the property."
Bach also explained that if the
Board of Adjustment denies
Perpall's claim for a variance, the
city could "force a negotiation
between the city and the property
owner." Perpall also could take the
city to court to reverse the Board
of Adjustment's action.

Here's a vision for Hilliard:
more services, no sprawl
Hilliard residents have no desire to see urban
sprawl spoil their country living.
More than 60 people participated in a public forum
Tuesday evening at Hilliard Middle-Senior High School,
giving their input on matters county planners should
consider when designing the future outlay for the West
The forum was the second of eight public meetings
being held this spring as part of a Nassau County
"County commissioners have put together a team
to help develop a 'Nassau County Vision 2032' plan,
what Nassau County will look like in 25 years," said
Dennis Yecke of MGT of America, Inc., a Tallahassee

in Yulee was the first in which the public had a chance
to give input.
During the second meeting, held Tuesday, resi-
dents applied "blue dot" adhesive labels to comment
sheets posted at 11 tables. Participants selected three
issues and responded in writing about their thoughts
on various topics such as education and schools, pub-
lic safety, social services and growth management.
Residents also listed what they liked, what they did not
like and what they would change in Hilliard.
Written responses under the education and schools
heading suggested that planners "modernize schools,"
provide "more books" and "separate the middle school
from the high school," among others.
Some respondents also verbalized their vision for the

A list highlighting public safety concerns included
"too many trains stopping or slowing (fire) rescue."
Another comment on the same list requested "more

their rural life altered to a large degree, but would
like some conveniences without the urban sprawl, as
it is in Yulee.
"They let it happen. The county commission
responded to the developers and to their needs," said
His wife, Barbara Libby, expressed her concerns too.
"I like the peace and quiet. I do not like the roads

Each of these performance measures makes sure
that every customer of the city has a say in the
city's strategic plan and that the strategic plan is

So, what are the results? The results are that the
city is making sure all of its customers love where

approval rating for quality from both permanent

tracks trends in school ratings and crime ratings;
86 percent of schools in Coral Springs earned an
"A" or better while being compared to just 68 per-
cent of schools received an "A" in Broward County.
The city also boasts the lowest crime rate in the
state of Florida and the fourth lowest in the country
for cities of its size.
Coral Springs boasts that this does more than
just make its residents happy. It also allows the city
to allocate resources quickly to where they are
most needed and desired. It also allows the govern-
ment officials to look past the here and now and
makes them aware of environmental issues and
where they want to see the community in the
future. The city also shows that employees are
faster and more engaged in their work, making the
city much more productive than similar sized gov-
ernments and larger governments in the area.
Coral Springs has a 95 percent approval rating
when asked how they enjoy working for the city. A
majority of these employees would "recommend a
friend work for the city." This 95 percent is com-
pared to just 60 percent of employees nationwide
rating their employment as favorable on the
National Human Capital Survey.
What could be better for Nassau County?
Before we look to what we want the community to
be like in 20 or 50 years down the road, I think
it is important that we are proactive in our govern-
ment first. If we could look at how we want the
county run, it will give new birth to ideas of
how the community will be. It will also give every-
one a say; gone are the headaches commonly asso-
ciated with government rules and regulations.
They are replaced with customer feedback, strate-
gic planning and personal objectives; giving
every resident, business and government employee
a voice in how our county is run. It will also allow
the officials to allocate resources faster, thereby
making the quality of life in Nassau County better
Coral Springs has successfully made its city one
of the best places to live in the country. However,
with our natural resources, Southern hospitality
and wonderful people, combined with a govern-
ment focused on strategic planning and customer
satisfaction, Nassau County is sure to be the best
place to live, visit and work in the country.

In U.S., ignorance is not bliss
I thought it was just me, but my suspicions and
worries were confirmed on NBC's Today show
when a survey showed that Americans are
Well, dumber is a pretty harsh word, and
although it could apply to some, I prefer the word
ignorant. Ignorant has a mean connotation and I
don't want to sound mean, so by definition
(Webster's New World Dictionary) I mean, "lacking
knowledge or experience; caused by or showing
lack of knowledge; unaware."
Awhile back I saw a survey that showed that 95
percent of Americans knew who was the president
(the 5 percent could account for mental infirmity,
age, other acceptable reasons, etc.), but the fright-
ening numbers come after that. Only 75 percent of
Americans knew who the vice president was, 25 per-
cent knew who the secretary of state was; the same
number knew who both of their U.S. senators were.
Most people (at least a majority) knew who their
governor was, but almost no one knew who the lieu-
tenant governor was. OK, count me in; I had to look
it up. Guess who is the lieutenant governor of
Florida? Jeff Kottkamp. Amazing.
But what is really scary is that one out of four
college students couldn't show you where to find
Iraq on a map. A considerable number of Americans
think that people from New Mexico need a green
card to live and work in the United States. There are
people that don't know that you can drive to Alaska
from the lower 48 (they think it's an island like
Hawaii, because on maps of the U.S. they show
..... Alaska and Hawaii on the side,
usually over the Pacific Ocean).

FROM THE ply because they don't get it,

Without going into too much of a rehash, how can
people, especially people with doctorates, call evolu-
tion "not a fact." Regardless of one's religious lean-
ings, facts are facts. How something like evolution
occurred may fall into the realm of religion, but the
fact itself remains. It would be like saying man
never went to the moon, because God didn't create
man to fly. We may marvel at the possible miracle of
flight, but it doesn't justify saying that Apollo wasn't
the way it happened. Divine intervention may have
happened, but the facts remain on how it happened.
Anyway, this is not meant to be about Darwin or
creationism. That was just an example of my con-
cern about ignorance (as defined earlier).
It seems that today Americans don't care much
about learning. I say that generally. Of course there
are many who do want to learn. But when I hear
people say they don't listen to public radio because
it's left wing, I am shocked. I am equally puzzled
when people are amazed that I listen to Fox News. I
am ignorant about many things (and most right-
wingers will say I am ignorant about everything),
and I feel compelled and embarrassed when I find
myself misinformed or uninformed.
In writing this piece, I went to the dictionary
twice to make sure I was using the right word. On
the way, I was sidetracked by several words that I
didn't know. It is fun to peruse the dictionary, some-
times it is distracting how much I need to learn as I
search for the word I need.
In the global economy and world village of today,
knowledge is ever so important, and ignorance is a
weight dragging us down. We better do something
now, individually and as a nation, or else America
will fall behind the emerging countries in Asia and
Eastern Europe, and our ignorance will not be bliss.
It starts with education, inside and outside of
school. We will be a better community (big and
small) when bumper stickers like "my child beat up
your honor student" are an embarrassment as
opposed to a point of pride.
Hopefully I don't get beaten up for saying that.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
No inherent conflict
I was surprised and disappointed that the superin-
tendent and board of the Nassau County Schools
promulgated Resolution 1238 (by a unanimous vote)
in the course of a meeting on Jan. 24.
The focus of the resolution is the proposed
Sunshine State Standards for Science. The specific
declarations expressed in the resolution are that "evo-
lution is not presented as fact" and that "evolution is
not presented at the exclusion of other theories of
the origin of life."
I write this letter as a scientifically trained physician
who decided to obtain a master's degree in religion
midway in my career. I have continued my education
by reading in both the field of theology and religion and
the field of science and medicine. My personal and pro-
fessional path has led me to bridge between the two
fields of study. I believe there need be no inherent con-
flict between science and religion with respect to
issues such as evolution and origins of life.
In reviewing "Florida's Proposed Student
Performance Science Standards," I first found an
extensive and impressive listing of the members of the
Framers Committee, supplemented by the list of
national experts who presented research to the
framers, members of the writing committee and expert
In my reading of the proposed science standards,
evolution is not presented as "fact;" rather, it is pre-
sented as "concept" or "organizing principle." The
one reference to the origin of life in the proposed sci-
ence standards is, "Describe the scientific explana-
tions of the origin of life on Earth." That notion is
quite different from stating that there is only one the-
ory of the origin of life.
I want also to address the letter in the News-Leader
("Mutation," Feb. 15) which stated that "there is still
not one shred of evidence of one species mutating
into another." For scientific evidence, I invite readers
of the News-Leader to go to the Internet and study
the material found at the website of the University of
California's Museum of Paleontology, entitled
"Understanding Evolution," http://evolution.berke
The famous evolutionary biologist, Theodosius
Dobzhansky, stated in the title of a 1973 essay, "Nothing
in Biology Makes Sense except in the Light of
Evolution." Note that Dobzhansky, born in Russia
and having migrated to the United States, held an
Orthodox Christian perspective. In that essay, he
states the following: "Does the evolutionary doctrine
clash with religious faith? It does not."
The school board's resolution does not indicate
what other theories of the origin of life might be con-
sidered. I believe the state science standards should
include only theories that are based on scientifically
studied evidence. I think the biblical story of creation
and the theory of so-called "intelligent design" do not
qualify as concepts that can be studied using the sci-
Thomas C. Washburn, M.D.
Fact not faith
The writer of the Feb. 15 letter headlined
"Mutation" must have had tongue in cheek when he
wrote, "the theory of evolution is based totally on
faith, not on fact and the scientific record."
The theory of evolution was developed by Charles
Darwin from observations he made as the official
biologist on a five-year (1831-1846) circumnavigation
in HMS Beagle. The evidence he collected at the
Galapagos Islands was particularly relevant. Despite
the Feb. 15 letter, it is obvious that his theory was
based not on faith but "on fact and scientific record."
Incidentally, the evolution theory was simultane-
ously and independently arrived at by another Brit,
Alfred Wallace, from studies in Brazil and the East
Indies. Darwin introduced the theory to the public with
his 1859 book, The Origin of the Species. Therefore, he
was given credit for it.
The Feb. 15 letter writer goes on to say that some
people have "confused the theory of evolution with ran-
dom mutation." Mutation is a change in the DNA in the
genes of an animal or a seed-producing plant. It usu-
ally produces progeny unable to survive in its envi-
Occasionally, however, the change results in better
adapted progeny, and through natural selection the
altered gene may pass on to succeeding generations.
While Darwin and Wallace, like everyone at that time,
were unaware of the mutation factor, they theorized
that the fittest, regardless of how they happened to be
so, had a better chance of surviving and reproducing.
Thus, over generations, the characteristics of the
species would gradually change to their likeness. And
How is it possible, as the letter writer claims, to con-
fuse the theory of evolution with random mutation?
Mutation is not a separate entity. It is the driving force
I would like to commend Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
for voicing his opinion about the deplorable condi-
tions at the county animal control facility ("Time to
bring Animal Control out of 'dark ages,'" Feb. 13). I
appreciate his honesty and his willingness to take on
such a monumental project. I hope that the county com-
missioners will take up the challenge he has put forth
to bring our facility "out of the dark ages."
"ME?!?LOWER THE PRICE OFOIL? YOU KNOW I AM POWERLESS OVER MARKETFORCES!"
RJ MATSON/THE ST. LOUIS POST DISPATCH
I beg you, in future articles regarding property
insurance or insurance of any type, please contact
knowledgeable insurance persons, licensed agents or
the Office of Insurance Regulation, to make certain that
comments you reproduce do not mislead your readers.
It does not appear you did so in writing the article
titled "Meet wind codes, save on insurance," Feb. 13.
The gist of your article was essentially correct;
there is, for example, a lot of money to be saved by mit-
igating, and homeowners should get their homes
inspected and shop for the best price and coverage.
However your only source said "insurance companies
are not going to volunteer information because the
more people that know about it (mitigation discounts)
cuts into their profits." He then referred to the infor-
mation concerning mitigation as the "fine print" usually
attached to the renewal information that is "not easily
First, mitigation inspections tell an insurer not only
what discounts to give but often whether they want to
insure the home. I'm sure you understand that it would-
n't be "profitable" to insure only homes that are more
likely to suffer greater damage. To the contrary, insur-
ing homes that are less likely to suffer losses is more
profitable, which is why carriers want to offer dis-
counts that reduce premiums - that way they can com-
pete with other carriers who also want to write the
better protected homes.
He should also consider that in your area a large
majority of homes, particularly those nearest the beach,
are insured in Citizens Property Insurance Corp., the
state insurer of last resort, not with standard market
companies. Citizens, which is probably the largest
wind insurer in your county, is a non-profit entity.
Second, he may think the mitigation form is "not eas- T
ily understandable" but I don't and neither does the
state of Florida. The form is required by law and
designed and approved by the Office of Insurance
Regulation, not by insurance carriers. Every sentence,
every word and every line of type is either in the law
or was put together after months of workshops and
meetings and final approval by Florida's insurance
regulator. These forms list and describe every miti-
gation discount factor available, the percentage dis-
count that could be applied, what to do to get the
work done and receive the discount and whether or not
the policyholders' current policy reflects that particular
discount. This is true for every residential policy
issued in Florida.
While I'm sure he meant well, as did you, his com-
ments reflect an assumption based on limited under-
standing of the law and the insurance mechanism gen-
erally. We would appreciate your clarification of these
facts in a future article.
By the way, if you need more information, as your
article said, it can be found by logging on to

'Personal agendas, bloated egos' thwart reform
sinking ship without a captain for quite
some time. With the possibility of the sher-
iff taking over the responsibility of man-
ning the ship, it has suddenly become of utmost
importance to our county commissioners. Why this
level of concern has not always been prevalent can
be summed up in a few words said to me by
Commission Chair Marianne Marshall, "Honey,
they (the county commissioners) don't care."
This was her response when I wanted to provide
her with documents to share with her fellow com-
missioners that would provide insight into how ani-
mal control is managed in other parts of the United
States. The commissioners are quick to jump back
onto the ship since the new captain is so probable.
Why? Because the sheriff will be removing from
them that giant thorn that Animal Control has
become; it will allow them to completely wash their
hands of it, and the less responsibility they have the
better they feel.
It is interesting how the commissioners have
handled the improprieties of Brenda Rothwell.
According to recent newspaper reports, the records
for 2007 intake versus euthanizations are "in disar-
ray" and "are being audited." Has the federal Drug
Enforcement Administration been invited to review
the drug logs that were likely not maintained? How
can she be trusted to handle the affairs of Code
Enforcement if she cannot maintain governmental
documents to dispense euthanization drugs? It all
smells like rotten fish to me and obviously the com-
missioners have grown immune to the stench to
allow her to remain in a supervisory capacity.

Humane Society and Nassau County Animal
Control. Since these two organizations are key ele-
ments in providing animal care and ensuring animal
welfare, you would think that they would have been
But they weren't asked to attend. In fact, the
meeting agenda included a discussion topic as to
whether or not they should be included in this "Pet
Alliance." What good is an alliance if everyone can't
After this "Pet Alliance" meeting, a meeting was
held with the sheriff and rescue groups to discuss
the possibility of his office taking over Animal
Control. Again, notably absent were Nassau
Humane Society and Nassau County Animal
Control. They were again not asked to attend. How
can a group of people who claim to have the best
interests in mind for the animals of this county not
include an organization that has performed the
services of animal control previously nor the agency
that is under discussion?
The answers are personal agendas, bloated egos
and a dislike for the people who are in charge of
those entities. I was in attendance at the first meet-
ing held by the sheriff and was greatly disheartened
when I left.
Since (Animal Control Interim Director) Rhett
Holden-Dodge wasn't in attendance, a few people
decided it would be OK to express their dislike for
him. One of those people was Commissioner
Marshall, who said, "I knew I'd made a mistake
when I agreed to hiring him (Mr. Holden-Dodge)."
Instead of focusing on the problems with the shel-
ter, how to remedy them promptly, how to assist Mr.
Holden-Dodge in his quest to improve the situation,
Commissioner Marshall instead took the liberty of
saying she knew she'd made a mistake agreeing to
bring him back on board.
As I expressed at the county commissioner's
meeting on Oct. 31 before being rudely told to sit
down and shut up by Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham, I felt that Mr. Holden-Dodge's previ-
ous tenure at the shelter had mediocre results at
best. Why bring back a person that didn't do the
best of jobs when he was in command before? Mr.
Holden-Dodge offered the commissioners a deal
they couldn't refuse - $1,000 a month as acting
At the meeting with the sheriff after hearing all
of the negative comments about him, I made the
statement that I thought it would benefit the animals
best if we could put the past behind us and lend a
helping hand to him to get Animal Control back on
track. Obviously I am the only person who felt that
The reason the commissioners clung to the offer
for $1,000 a month is because they knew they would
not find another person to accept the job for that
amount. He provided them with a reprieve from the
barrage of questions the public had. He was the
quick fix they were looking for. While I still do not
agree with all of his tactics, I laud Mr. Holden-
Dodge's efforts as he does the thankless job of
being the director because he is there for the right
reasons - the animals.
One of the newest rescue groups in the county,
RAIN, appears to have monopolized the sheriff's
attention with regard to how the shelter should be
run. He has had subsequent meetings with people
involved with RAIN, yet, to my knowledge, he has
not asked for input from any other rescue group
since the initial meeting, nor has he asked any per-
son employed by Animal Control what they feel
would benefit the shelter most. We can all sit back
and say what we think is best, but how about asking
Patsy Bryant, who has been at the shelter a number
of years, what she thinks? I believe she would pro-
vide valuable "inside" information on what areas are
the biggest problems.
The sheriff's proposal to take over Animal
Control is correct in one thing. Animal Control in
the county is disgustingly underfunded. However, I
question his motives with the redundant positions
he has proposed to staff the shelter. Do you really
need a shelter manager when you have a shelter
director? Do you really need an office manager
when you only have two receptionists? Why not uti-
lize that funding to provide spaying and neutering
for people who have come to Animal Control as a
last resort? The more animals that are altered, the
fewer there will be in the shelter.
I ask that everyone take the opportunity to visit
the shelter. Through the hard work of countless vol-
unteers and shelter staff, the animals are better off
now than they have been in some time. Come and
see the sad conditions they have to live in. By doing
so, you will have done one thing that the commis-
sioners have not - visited the facility that has been
such a dilemma to them. Out of sight and out of
mind is their motto and they are suddenly all too
ready to pull money out of their magic hat to have
the sheriff take it all away due to the amount of pub-
lic scrutiny they are under.

$5,000 to participate and has a personal goal
of raising $6,000.

How joining a perfect church can ruin your life
Never before had I heard
a man speak like this
man. It's true I had only
been walking with the
Lord for a little while, yet some-
how I knew this man was differ-
As the meeting came to a close
several people began to surround
him armed with all their ques-
tions. Though I was only visiting
the church, and he was just a
guest speaker, God was about to
do something that would forever
change my life.
While many of the people who
called that particular church their
home gathered around him, I
eased up behind them hoping to
get a chance to meet him myself.
As the crowd slowly thinned
and I finally stood before him, his
gentle eyes and warm smile put
me right at ease. "Hi, I'm Rob," I
said as I stuck out my hand to
"Hello," he said as he placed
his thick, aged hand in mine. "It's
nice to meet you."

PULPIT "I do have
NOTES a question for
you if you
don't mind," I continued.
"OK," he said, "I'll do my best.
What is it?"
"Well, I'm having a hard time
finding the right church to
attend," I told him. "I've visited
several, but things just don't seem
quite right and I don't know what
to do about it." His gentle eyes
looked right at me with such com-
passion, and I'm sure pity, as he
began speaking the words that
would alter my life forever.
"I travel all over the world," he
said, "and I go into a lot of differ-
ent churches. I have to admit, I
don't always agree with what I
see," he continued. "But if you
ever find a perfect church don't
go in it because you'll ruin it!"
His words were like a sword
cutting open my heart and reveal-
ing my pride. Though tempered
with love, the impact left me
"That makes a lot of sense,"
I told him, and thanked him
once again for his ministry. As I
walked away, it all seemed so
clear. The whole time I was
expecting everyone else to meet
up to my standards, I was not con-
sidering the imperfections of my
own life that I would be bringing
The plain and simple truth is,
there are no perfect churches
because there are no perfect peo-
ple yet. As a matter of fact, it's the
one great thing we all have in
common; we need a savior.
For me church isn't about
gathering with a group of people
who've got it all together, so we
can act better than those who
don't; but rather it's the place
where people just like you and me
come to worship and thank God
for meeting us right where we
It's hard to believe that it's
been almost 23 years since my
encounter with the traveling min-
ister that night, and that I now am
the senior pastor of the very
church that I once judged not
good enough to attend. I can only
imagine how God must get a good
chuckle out of it all.
This much I know. When I
finally made the decision to stop
holding others to a standard that I
myself couldn't live up to, and
joined myself to a group of people
that would accept me as I was, my
life has never been better.

Amelia Park Development
announces the commencement
of construction of a church at the
traditional neighborhood devel-
opment. Groundbreaking for the
sanctuary and parish hall took
place in January and construction
is expected to be complete by this
summer - creating a facility for
worship as well as gatherings and
meetings of Amelia Park resi-
"A church is an important com-
ponent of any neighborhood and
we are pleased to include a place
of worship at Amelia Park," said
Joel Embry, managing partner of
Amelia Park Development, in a
press release. "Not only will this
be a place for quiet reflection
and church activities, it will also
be a convenient community meet-
ing place for all Amelia Park res-
idents to utilize on a regular
Amelia Park Development has
worked diligently to include
essential elements of design at
Amelia Park to provide civic, com-
munity and commercial spaces
within walking distance of a broad
mix of nearby homes.
Already the neighborhood
includes such community com-
ponents as a neighborhood park
and pavilion, a town square, a
retail and office center, a YMCA,
walking pathways and sidewalks.
The Amelia Park master plan also
calls for the eventual addition of a
"The worship and meeting
space was a key element of the
original Amelia Park master plan
created by Duany Plater-Zyberk &
Company, so we are exceedingly
pleased to see this progress,"
The church at Amelia Park will
house the worship community of
Holy Trinity Anglican Church.
Designed by Amelia Island archi-
tect John Dodd and built by
Amelia Builders of NE FL Inc.,
the 2,500-square-foot church will

traditional architecture that is
prevalent at Amelia Park and will
accommodate more than 100 peo-
ple. The church is located at the
neighborhood's Citrona Drive
entrance near the McArthur
Besides helping to provide a
sense of community, "Our church
will contribute aesthetically to the
neighborhood as well," said
Father Michael Bowhay, rector
of Holy Trinity. "The design con-
figuration, materials and site plan-
ning for the church all reflect our
desire to add to the overall beau-
ty and balance in Amelia Park."

Q Would you be able to iden-
*tify a plant growing in my
yard? I never see any flowers. It
is evergreen but I cannot find
any information about it. DG
A Recently, I have received
*numerous clippings of this
shrub into the office. With so
many people interested in the
plant I felt compelled to put the
answer in the newspaper. I sus-
pect the small, shiny white fruit
is what piqued your interest.
One of the Master Gardener vol-
unteers recognized it as the
Night Blooming Jessamine,
It produces flowers but they
are small and open up at night,
which may be one of the rea-
sons you have not noticed them.
The name is derived from the
flowers producing a strong,
sweet scent at night that appar-
ently attracts a number of

Q I have dwarf oleander and
.I just noticed that the
leaves are missing. When I
looked closer I saw orange
caterpillars with black bristles.
What is eating my plant? JD
A.Your plant is being eaten
S.by the oleander caterpillar.
Normally the cooler tempera-
tures we've had this winter
would stop or slow the caterpil-
lars' feeding, but I have not seen
this to be true.
I suspect shrubs planted
near the house or in an alcove
may be in a warmer, more pro-
tected area that would allow
the insect a perfect environment
to continue growing and feed-
ing. Oleander caterpillars have
been found on plants in the
UF/IFAS Nassau County
Demonstration garden as well as
my own home - so you are not
Despite their threatening
appearance they are quite harm-
less to humans so hand removal
works very easily as many are
too large for the chemical appli-
cation of pesticides to be worth-
However, if they are small
(one inch or less) you might try
an application of Bacillus
thuringiensis (Bt), which is a
naturally occurring bacterial dis-
ease used on insects. Bt insecti-
cides are most commonly used
against some leaf and needle
feeding :l.,ii 1" h- Recently,
strains have been produced that
affect certain fly larvae, such as
mosquitoes, and larvae of leaf
beetles. Bt is considered safe to
people, pets and wildlife. Be
careful to avoid using this chem-
ical around butterfly larvae as
they will be destroyed along
with the pests.
In addition, this chemical is
temperature sensitive so store it
in a dark, cool environment.
High heat destroys the bacteria
and renders it useless. As
always, follow the directions on
the label for best management
Q What is this small plant I
.found in my yard? BC
A What a nice surprise to
*find such a beautiful plant
in your yard. I suspect this flow-
ering plant is a terrestrial orchid
in the genus Corallorhiza. It is
so tiny that most people would
overlook it or think it a weed. I
am proud of you for noticing it at
This plant grows about 4
inches in height in any type of
moist soil but prefers shaded
areas - typically hardwood
forests. More specifically, I
believe this orchid might be
Corallorhiza wisteriana, Spring
Coralroot, which blooms in the
early spring and is found
throughout most of the south-
ern and eastern part of the
United States. Of course bloom-
ing this time of year is a bit early
for C. wisteriana so I could be
wrong. The early bloom may be
the result of a special micro-cli-
mate on your property that
allows the plant protection from
One of my sources has this
plant listed as threatened but I
can find no current U.S. or
Florida sources listing it as
endangered or threatened.
However, you might make some
effort to protect it as it is such a
wonderful addition to your land-

close with Rose to give their father
a great celebration. Another
daughter, Laura E. Jones, sang
happy birthday and shared with
him by phone from Texas.
His 94-year-old mother,
Annie Johnson, along with other
family and friends, some from
Hilliard, Callahan, Kings Ferry,
Yulee, Jacksonville and other sur-
rounding areas, were at the
Martin Luther King Jr. Center for
a celebration of love.
Love is like a smile, it is like a
song, it is a great emotion
that keeps us going strong. That
love was put together by his
daughters with slides about
their father and his family. His
nephew, Patrick Cribb, also
joined in the presentation.
Inspirational words came from
Evangelist Clara Stamps on "How
Strong is Your Love?" Rose says,
"I love you with all my heart.
And I have poured my entire soul
into you, right from the start. For
the race is not given to the swift,
nor the strong, but he that
endureth to the end." Hang on in
there, Rose, and allow your love to

F or some time, I have
wondered about a
way to harvest the
energy expended at a
health club. Just picture your
mind when you walk into the
YMCA ... all those people
powering the bicycles, the
elliptical trainers and pushing
and pulling the Nautilus
equipment. That is a lot of
energy that could be used to
power the televisions or even
the lights. The Y could even
somehow store the energy
and then donate it back to the
electric company to be passed
onto someone who is strug-
gling to pay their bill.
Now, while I may be able
to dream up the idea, I have
no idea how to actually make
it work. If you are able to
come up with a way to make
that happen, let me know. As
you will read, others are
already working on other
ways to harvest the energy of

University of Pittsburgh and

The brace was designed to
assist an injured person with
walking, but the developers
quickly realized that it had
other applications. As the
braced knee moves back and
forth, energy is created and
the brace transfers it into a
generator, which can then be
attached to an electronic
Researchers showed that
simply walking for one
minute could power a phone
for 10 minutes.
Wear your power shirt
Researchers from Emory
University and Georgia Tech
are also at work developing
"power shirt" able to generate
electricity to power small
electronic devices for soldiers
in the field, hikers and others
whose physical motion could
be harnessed and converted
to electrical energy.
This month's journal
Nature details how pairs of
textile fibers covered with
zinc oxide nanowires gener-
ate electrical current when
they are mechanically
deformed, a phenomenon
known as the piezoelectric
Harvesting this electrical
current from many of these
fiber pairs woven into a shirt
or jacket could allow your

Researchers also noted
how the fibers could also be
woven into curtains, tents or
other structures to capture
energy from wind motion,

'The fiber-based nanogen-
erator would be a simple and
economical way to harvest
energy from physical move-
ment," said Zhong Lin Wang,

"If we can combine many
of these fibers in double or

PIRATES AT PLAY
PHOTOS BY BEVH JrONS/NEWS-LEADER
Softball and baseball season is in full swing for the Fernandina Beach High School Pirates. Katie McElhaugh, left, started for
the FBHS Lady Pirates Wednesday and Myles Rabant, right, was on the mound for the Pirates Monday. The Lady Pirates col-
lected their first win of the season over Lee Wednesday. Lee was also a victim of the Pirates (2-1) on Monday, 16-0.

Lady Pirates get first
win against Generals
After losing the season opener to Baker
County Feb. 14, the Pirates have rallied to win
their last two games and are 2-1 on the season.
"We let a two-run lead slip away in our open-
er at Baker County," said Ken Roland,
Fernandina Beach High School head baseball
coach. "We carried a 2-0 lead into the seventh
inning, only to let Baker back into the game.
We failed to execute defensively and that con-
tributed to our late collapse.
"We faced an outstanding pitcher (senior
right-hander Jerrell Rodgers) and our young
hitters did a good job working the count."
Baker scored three unearned runs in the
seventh to win 3-2.
The Pirates collected six hits with Justin
Crews and Trent Luman accounting for two
each. Robert Martin and Hunter Daniel had
one apiece. Davis and Daniel knocked in the
Three pitchers shared time on the mound.
Justin Day started and struck out three, walked
four and gave up just two hits. Andy Bowles
gave up two runs on one hit and Jarrod Carlton
allowed one run on one hit.
The Pirates got their first win of the season
Feb. 15 at home. They defeated Terry Parker
"Again we faced a pitcher with good veloc-
ity and movement and we did a good job put-
ting the ball in play," Roland said.
The Pirates had nine hits on the night.
"We just were not sharp on the mound and
walks put Terry Parker in position to make
the game close," Roland said. "Justin Day's
single in the seventh scored Harrison Yonn
with the game winner."
Justin Day had two hits and Womble, Crews,
Jeff Day, Carlton, Martin and Luman had one
hit each. Justin Day and Carlton had two RBIs
apiece and Martin and Luman each knocked in
Tyler Womble was the winning pitcher. He
gave up two runs on one hit and walked three.
Harrison Yonn started, giving up three runs,
one unearned, on two hits, walking five and
striking out three. Yonn gave way to Bradley
Manning, who allowed a run, walked two and
struck out one batter.
On Monday, FBHS shut out Lee 16-0.
"We pounded out 13 hits in the five-inning
game," Roland said. "Pitching was sharper.
Our young pitchers are working hard to stay
in advantage counts."
Myles Rabant was the winning pitcher. He
gave up just one hit and no runs, walked five
and struck out three. Cameron Rose pitched
the final inning, giving up no runs or hits and
striking out two.
Clockwise from top left: Pirate Justin Crews at the plate Monday; Lady Pirate
shortstop Bree Peterson at Lee Wednesday; teammate Carrington Fussell
behind the plate. She also pitched against the Generals.
At the plate, Carlton went 3-for-4 with three
RBIs. Jeff Day and Justin Day had two hits
apiece and both had a double in the game. Jeff
Day had one RBI and Justin Day knocked in
four runs. Daniel, Crews, Yonn and Martin
each had a hit. Crews tripled.
"With the graduation of 11 seniors, our
team is young and inexperienced," Roland said.
"We have three returning pitchers with right-
handers Justin Day and Jarrod Carlton along
with left-hander Tyler Womble. Justin Crews
returns at shortstop. Senior second baseman
Bud Davis also returns. All of the others are
new to the line-up."
"Key newcomers are Robert Martin (junior
third baseman), Hunter Daniel (junior left field-
er), Trent Luman (sophomore right fielder),"

FA fish haven a good bet for sea bass action this weekend
ffshore fishing for sea bass should be
excellent this weekend. A good place to
begin your drift fishing day on the water
is FA fish haven. Fishermen will find lots
of hard bottom and rock ledges, which are both
excellent habitats for good eating sea bass.
Bring along a five-pound frozen block of local
squid for bait. Most local tackle shops have five
. pounds of frozen local squid on hand, which will
also catch a wide variety of bot-
tom feeders. Expect to catch
, lots of red snapper this week-
end at FA fish haven along with
a few keeper gag grouper.
Once you have boated a few

I went bass fishing last weekend in a small lake
and did not see any bedding activity for largemouth
bass. In fact, the fishing action was quite slow while
Norman Bray, Dan Nolan and I caught and released
seven bass weighing to three pounds.
A full moon did arrive Thursday. With this in
mind, expect a big spawn to happen during the next
The Little St. Marys River, Boggy Creek and the
deep waters of Lofton Creek should hold some
excellent pre-spawn bass fishing. Try casting a No.
Bill Irwin, left, and Dan Nolan caught and
released their huge catch of bass that weighed
to 8 pounds.
11 silver rapala while working the lure just under
the surface with an erratic swimming action.
Surf fishermen have been doing well for beach
whiting ranging from 1-2 pounds. The high falling
tide offers clear water conditions and the best bite
for what many fishermen claim is the best eating
fish from the surf.
Surf fishermen sill have a perfect tide this week-
end with a high tide arriving at 10:15 a.m.

I recently wrote about Australia's
problems with a glut of shiraz, corpo-
rate takeovers and a decline in quality.
But there are always exceptions to the
rule and a recent arrival here is one of
Forefathers shiraz is produced
from a 15-acre vineyard in McLaren
Vale, South Australia. This shiraz is a
single vineyard wine produced by
Goldschmidt Vineyards. The 2003 vin-
tage was --
rated a "91" INE
by The Wine l
which P TERS
wide in its "Top 100 Wines" in 2005.
That year it also won a gold medal in
the West Coast Wine Competition and
the Indy International Wine
And it's available for $13 at Amelia
Liquors (next to Harris Teeter). The
distributor says it is also available
through Costco Warehouse.
Goldschmidt is one of the smaller
Australian vintners that still strive for
quality, not corporate profits.
Structure, intensity and complexity,
the three characteristics of quality
wines, are their objectives, which they
do achieve in this fine example of how
shiraz should taste. The Forefathers
shiraz is made using traditional
Australian winemaking techniques,
with short time on skins and fermen-
tation in barrel. After ferment is com-
pleted the wine is barrel racked and
left in French oak for 12 months. The
wine remains unfiltered and unfined,
preserving as much of the natural fla-
vors as possible.

Three brothers have a reunion
in India and take a strange and
eccentric train journey in search
of themselves, enlightenment,
their mother, and certain obscure
over-the-counter remedies guar-
anteed to cure sobriety. Owen
Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason
Schwartzman star in a laid-back
human comedy that meanders so
persuasively, it gets us meander-
ing right along. With Amara Karan
as a seductive train stewardess
and Wally Wolodarsky as
Wilson's employee, who issues
laminated daily schedules from
his office in the baggage car.
Directed by Wes Anderson
("Rushmore," "The Royal
Tenenbaums"). Rating: *** Y
30 Days of Night
(Horror. R. 113m.. 2007)
Barrow, Alaska, said to be the
northernmost town in America,
undergoes 30 days without sun
every winter, which makes it an
ideal holiday haven for vampires.
The townsfolk, led by Josh
Hartnett and Melissa George, do
battle against ravenous vampire
hordes led by Danny Huston, in a
film that is well-directed and -
acted. Rating: ** 2
A titanic epic battle between
the monster Grendel and the
hero Beowulf, shown by director
Robert Zemeckis with rip-roaring
gusto by using the same technol-
ogy as his "Polar Express," so
that animated characters look
almost real. With the voices (and
sometimes the appearances) of
Anthony Hopkins, Angelina Jolie,
John Malkovich, Robin Wright
Penn, Brendan Gleeson and

Crispin Glover (who doesn't look
anything like Grendel). Lots of
nudity and yet a PG-13 rating.
You see, Jolie (ITAL) isn't really
there, (UNITAL) although she's
there enough that she says she
won't be taking her own kids.
Absurd violent action in the

Death at a Funeral
(Comedy. R. 90m.. 2007)
British comedy involving
unplanned entrances and exits,
misbehavior of corpses and just
plain wacky eccentricity. Directed
by Frank Oz, it finds its laughs in
the peculiar human trait of being
most tempted to laugh when
we're absolutely not supposed to.
With Matthew Macfadyen, Keeley
Hawes, Ewen Bremner, Jane
Asher, Rupert Graves and, last
but not least, Peter Dinklage.
(Drama. R. 114m.. 2007)
Set in the time of the Spanish
Inquisition, Milos Forman's film
interweaves stories of the
Spanish artist, an innocent young
girl, a priest, a merchant and the
royal court. Extraordinarily beauti-
ful, as much a series of striking
images as a linear story. Starring
Stellan Skarsgard, Javier
Bardem, Natalie Portman, Jose
Luis Gomez and Randy Quaid.
Filled with blood, sex and fears.
(Romantic drama. R. 110 m.. 2007)
A languid, too languid, story of
romantic regrets, mostly ours,
because romance is expected to
carry the film without explaining it.
It is told as a mournful flashback,
circa 1860, narrated by a man
(Michael Pitt) who has been in
love with two women, one French
(Kiera Knightley), one in far-off
Japan (SeiAshina), where he
goes to buy silkworms. Languid,
slow, underwhelming. Rating: **
(Drama. R. 119m.. 2007)
George Clooney plays a slick,
efficient but weary fixer for a big
law firm, Sydney Pollack is the
head of the firm, Tom Wilkinson is
the partner who has just stripped
naked during a deposition hear-
ing in Milwaukee, and Tilda
Swinton represents the corporate
client who is horrified to find such
a man leading their defense. A
near-perfect example of the
legal/business thriller. Written and
directed by Tony Gilroy, who
wrote all the "Bourne" picture.
Horror-comedy a cheeky commentary
Universal Press Syndicate
A few things we can learn
from the experimental horror-
comedy 'The Signal":
1. Do not live in a place called
"Terminus." There's no future in
2. If your cable goes out, don't
stare at the mesmerizing static.
Just turn off the TV.
3. Do not put on headphones
and listen to music while stroll-
ing down the corridor in your
apartment building if it's strewn
with freshly slaughtered corpses,
especially if madmen with gar-
den shears are also present.
4. It doesn't hurt to wear a tin-
foil hat sometimes.
That first one is a given. The
second one you should already
know from life experience (it
hurts your eyes) and from
movies like "Videodrome" and
the Japanese horror film "Ringu"
('The Ring"). The third one you
should know from every zombie
or slasher movie ever made, and
besides, it's just common sense.
And the fourth, well, that's just a
bonus tip that could come in
Written and directed in three
segments, or "transmissions," by
David Bruckner, Jacob Gentry
and Dan Bush, respectively, 'The
Signal" originated as an experi-
ment called "Exquisite Corpse,"
in which a story is passed along
from one filmmaker to another,
each taking it in new directions
before handing it off to the next.
The cumulative result is a movie
that explores the common
ground between visceral horror
and sketch comedy, and finds
plenty of it. Both forms share a
zest for the outlandish in logic
Be Kind Rewind
(Comedy. PG-13. ll01minutes)
After every tape in a VHS
rental store is inadvertently
erased, Jack Black and Mos Def
don't want the store owner
(Danny Glover) to find out. So
they set to work to "re-enact" the
films in low-tech home movies. I
felt positive and genial while
watching it, but I didn't break out
in paroxysms of laughter. Written
and directed by the usually more
brilliant Michel Gondry.

Anton Yelchin is appealingly
goofy in this teen comedy about
a kid's yearning for popularity
won by illegally selling prescrip-
tion drugs to his fellow students.
Like many of John Hughes' high
and execution, which is probably
why the frightening and the
laughable bleed together so
On the scary side, "The
Signal" has a 1970s low-budget
look and feel that serves it well:
garish, grainy, raw. On the funny
side - the middle section is a
splash of bright red black come-
dy - it gives us characters who
openly acknowledge the prepos-
terous genre cliches and conven-
tions - idiotic decision-making
(often involving trips to the base-
ment), stock characters and situ-
ations, portentous camera place-
ment - that we've been
conditioned to hoot at in cheap
horror movies. This is a film in
which the line, 'This is getting
ridiculous!" is actually funny, and
is meant to be, because it under-
states the obvious.
"The Signal" has a spirit of
casual elan, as if a few mildly
buzzed buddies had tossed
around some ideas for a fun
exploitation picture one night -
maybe after the cable went
out in the middle of a game - and
then persuaded some more
friends to hang out with them
and shoot it over spare evenings
and weekends. This is a compli-
So, the story is that there's
this woman who's cheating on
her pathologically jealous hus-
band. Also, TVs and phones
have stopped working properly.
And lots of people are going
homicidally berserk. One charac-
ter estimates that "one out of
every two people" are impulsive-
ly murdering the other one out
of every two. Do the math - even
for Terminus the odds are not

Surely the culprit is, well, right
there in the title, prompting a

It's a metaphor, natch, a
cheeky commentary on the role
of television in spreading terror-
ism and the fear of terrorism;
promoting lies and propaganda
that inflame feelings of rage and
paranoia in the population;
implanting nasty images in peo-

Estate the "New World Winery of the Year" in 2006.
The 9,000-acre estate, snug between the
Helderberg and Hottentots Holland mountains some
30 miles from Cape Town, is ideal for viniculture as it
has a prolonged growing season that allows grapes
to develop a full flavor.
Now a historic landmark, Vergelegen (pro-
nounced Fair'-huleg-hen and meaning "situated far
away") has a history that goes back to the Dutch col-
onization of 1700. It is considered one of the environ-
mental jewels of South Africa. It was acquired by the
Anglo American Corporation, world renowned for
precious metals industries and De Beers Diamonds,
some 20 years ago. Anglo-American, unlike other
corporations, has kept hands off the winery,
although the estate has become a frequent meeting
place for world leaders. Vergelegen played a role in
the efforts to build a new South Africa. In 1991, soon
after Nelson Mandela's release from prison, the
homestead hosted the recently unbanned African
National Congress for a crucial executive meeting -
beginning a relationship with Mandela, who was to
become South Africa's president three years later.
Vergelegen's recent history includes the state
receptions for President Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II
and other European royalty, as well as many other
leaders from around the world.
You can buy this piece of South African history,
for a short time, at Amelia Liquors for $13.

WINE Continued from 1B
McLaren Vale fruit characters for shiraz are
spicy and rich. There are notes of plum, black pep-
per and a soft note of vanilla. The barrel ferment
technique makes the wine fruit-forward, with sweet,
ripe tannins. It has a long finish and silky mouth
feel. This wine's best years are from two years of age
to seven, which means the 2003 vintage is at its
prime right now.
Another find at Amelia Liquors is a South African
sauvignon blanc from the famous Vergelegen estate.
This 2004 bottling is truly a different SB, and a
standout. It has a nose that jumps out of the glass -
gooseberries, fig, elderflower, some ripe fruits, cut
grass and green pepper. The wine is full, intensely
flavored and very long on aftertaste.
The grapes are selected from Vergelegen's own
vineyards in Somerset West, plus from selected vine-
yards on the West Coast near the town of
Koekenaap, a blend of 90 percent sauvignon blanc,
10 percent semillon. The grapes are skinned quickly
(the vintner contends skin contact leads to coarse
wines), the juice settled for 72 hours at low tempera-
tures before inoculation with the desired yeast strain
for sauvignon grapes. Another non-traditional tech-
nique used for this wine is fermentation at higher
temperatures than normal. This leads to fuller, big-
ger and more intensely flavored wine, the vintner
says, and the actual drinking experience proves
