Tree law


News Leader
It's back to the drawing board
for a proposed tree protection law
following a series of public hear-
ings hosted by Nassau County
Four commissioners made plain
during the public hearings, the last
one Feb. 21 in Fernandina Beach,
that they want no part of a law that
restricts small private property
owners' right to cut trees in unin-
corporated Nassau County. The
city of Fernandina Beach has such
a law, and there are limits in unin-
corporated Amelia Island.
Commissioners Tom Branan,
Jim B. Higginbotham, Barry
Holloway and Marianne Marshall
all have voiced support for some
kind of tree ordinance, but not this
one. Mike Boyle, co-chair of a com-
mittee that spent six months com-
ing up with the proposal, said he
was disappointed with the outcome.
The committee will meet again
and seek compromise language.
"It might be limited to parcels
under development on major road-
ways," Growth Management
Director Walter Fufidio said
Commissioners have com-
plained about the clearcutting of
trees to make way for shopping
centers along A1A, for example,
but the public hearings were dom-
inated by West Side residents who
wanted no part of a law to limit

The quorum for the new board
to take action on matters before it

Five of the appointees will serve
in an "at-large" capacity, with no
residential restrictions; five will rep-

represent the school board.
Appointees now will "serve at
the will of the board" in an effort to
help ensure that those appointed
are informed of zoning procedures.

interested in other things, doing
other work, they should be imme-

important that position is," said

the concern, saying, "If there is an
issue with absences I would replace
them quickly."

The planning board's size was

A $1.2 million reduction in funds
this year has prompted Nassau

John Ruis to impose financial con-

Ruis issued to all principals,
directors and coordinators a Feb.
12 memorandum outlining restrict-

anticipation of budget adjust-

"It doesn't look like it's going

to be a good year financially," he
told the school board Feb. 14. Next
year there will be "personnel and
staff reductions as a result of the
shortfalls we're anticipating."
The clamp down comes after
the district "absorbed a 2 percent,
or approximately $1.2 million
reduction in funds from the initial
2007-8 legislative appropriation,"
Ruis wrote.

Dear Taxpayers:

Though many taxpayers may not be aware of it, Florida Law provides that prop-
erty owners may pay their property taxes by an installment method. The proce-
dure, as outlined in Statute 197.222, provides that you may elect to break your
taxes into four payments.

There are some requirements. For example, the estimated tax must exceed
$100. Like the regular annual tax billing process, the installment method provides
for discounts on taxes due:

* First Installment Payment: One quarter of the total estimated taxes dis-
counted at 6 percent.
* Second Installment Payment: One quarter of the total estimated taxes
discounted at 4 1/2 percent.
* Third Installment Payment: One quarter of the total estimated taxes, plus
or minus, as the case may be, one-half of any adjustment pursuant to a
determination of actual tax liability discounted at 3 percent.
* Fourth Installment Payment: One quarter of the total estimated taxes,
plus or minus, as the case may be, one-half of any adjustment pursuant to
a determination of actual tax liability. No discount.

The deadline for applying for the installment method is April 30, 2008. Please be
advised that you would be applying for an installment plan relating to the upcom-
ing 2008 Tax Roll, which will open on November 1st. (Your application would not
affect taxes that were due as of November 1, 2007, which is the current Tax

Former Nassau tax collector
Gwen Miller took advantage of that
provision before her retirement
two years ago.
Most state employees getting
a salary and a pension are enrolled
in the state's Deferred Retirement
Option Program, called DROP It
was created in 1998 to encourage
retirement of senior employees to
make room for advancement by
younger, lower-paid employees.
To enter DROP, employees who
reach retirement age or 30 years of
employment agree to retire within
five years. When they leave the
program they usually collect hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars in
deferred compensation.
Among the double dippers cited
by the Times, the top moneymak-
er is Miami Dade Community
College president Eduardo J.
Padron. On May 31, 2006, he ter-
minated his participation in DROP,
collected $893,286 in lump sum
benefits and began receiving
$14,631 a month in retirement pay.

He still collects his annual salary of
$328,860, the Times reported.

senators and 10 House members

There were 43,740 registered

voter information cards to every

said. "Any voter whose (voter infor-
mation card) was returned as
undeliverable from the postal serv-
ice was sent a final notice giving
the voter 30 days to notify our
office of an address change. If the
voter did not respond within the 30-
day period, they were placed in an
'inactive' status. They are still eli-
gible to vote but are required to
update their address before vot-
Many of those "inactive" voters
became active when they updated
their addresses before the state
presidential primary elections and
property tax referendum in
Others are likely to do so before
the April 8 city election for resi-

dents of Fernandina Beach. Still
more are likely to do so before
Republican and Democratic local
primary elections in August, and
before the general election Nov.
"However, if they do not con-
tact our office or vote within the
next two general elections, they
will be placed in an 'ineligible' sta-
tus and will have to re-register
before voting," Cannon said. "This
process is performed to keep the
voter registration list current."
She said "although our 'active'
voters decreased as a result of the
list maintenance process, our 'inac-
tive' list increased. When we per-
form list maintenance, we find that
many voters have moved to anoth-
er county or state, relocated with-
in Nassau County, etc. It is a
mandatory process that we must
perform to keep our registration
records current."

Emergency center plans advance

Community Newspapers
Design plans for Nassau
County's new emergency opera-
tions center are moving closer to
completion. The new 6,143-square-
foot center will be built adjacent to
the judicial annex and courthouse
in Yulee, and builders plan to begin
construction by summer.
Ensuring that the structure is
both environmentally friendly and
energy efficient, while keeping
costs down, is the primary concern
for Nassau County Commissioners
and architects at Mandese White
Construction, Inc.
Planners are seeking construc-
tion materials and furnishings that
are considered "green," which
means some of the components
may be made of recycled materials
or may be derived from compo-
nents that have a low impact on the
"By building to a higher build-
ing code criteria, there are aspects
already of the project that address
higher energy efficient materials
and site orientation," said Nancy
Freeman, director of Nassau
County Emergency Management,
adding, "We're looking long term to
increase cost savings over time."
The county expects another $1
million allocation to come from a
combination of state and federal
grants to further fund the project;
the board has already approved ini-
tial funding.
One of the design elements
includes roofing and windows stur-
dy enough to withstand wind
speeds up to 165 miles per hour,
enabling emergency officials to
continue communications and
other duties during hurricanes or
other dire conditions.

"We can build a roof system that
can withstand the impact," said
Howard J. McLean Jr., the project's
architect, at a presentation Feb 13.
A discussion ensued among the
commissioners about the pitch of
the proposed roof. They cited pre-
vious problems with work per-
formed by other contractors, such
as leaky windows at other facilities
and subsequent repair costs.
Commissioner Jim B.

Higginbotham said he "could not
understand why we have a flat
roof," because of the number of
times the jail's roof has been
repaired. The jail was built in 2002.
Other design features for the
proposed facility will include a
media area available for print and
television news personnel, bunk
accommodations and other ameni-
ties necessary to sustain those who
are encamped.

The building's facade will coor-
dinate with the surrounding facili-
ties to help give it a unified look.
The center is one of approxi-
mately 24 that will be built across
the state, according to Freeman.
Architects are reviewing some of
the design elements suggested by
the board, such as roof design and

U-turns are part of life

C arpooling on a Friday
afternoon, no big deal,
right? Just throw those
backpacks in the back of
the car and let the kids file in.
Yeah, right.
Noah and Caleb, my 7- and 8-
year-old were both having friends
over along with three extra kids
to drop off. My car has room for
eight, so no problem. Everyone
starts to pile in and Sara says,
"Where do you want me to put
this stuff?"
"Here, let me put it in the
trunk." Well, the trunk was full of
food from a luncheon I had just
Some quick rearranging
began. The boys start saying,
"Hey, we can't sit down either,
these bags are in the way."
"What are you talking
about?" I reply and take a look for
myself. Uggggggh. I forgot about
the two huge black garbage bags
for the Barnabas Center in the
back row.
This is going to be a trick fit-
ting this many kids amongst all
these other treasures. "Wait,
Alice ... STOP ... Don't go yet!" I
yell to Charlie's mom, wildly wav-
ing my arms, flagging her down
as she's pulling out of the school.
"Would you mind putting my
Barnabas donations in the back
of your car and I'll get them when
we trade kids later?" I say with a
smile, however feeling mildly


and overdone
at this point.
But you
know what?
It is my life.
skipping a
beat, not
even a sar-
Jennifer castic com-
Emmons ment or poke
at me, she
said, "If you
SUNNY want I can
SIDE UP just drop that
off for you."
w nice is that? She had no

idea the bags had been in my car
for at least three weeks. Every
time I'd think to drop them off,
something else would get in the
way. They had been moved from
the trunk to the third row a few
times, but since I'm the driver,
not the rider, it continued to slip
my mind.
"You are a lifesaver, that would
be a huge help." Receiving ran-
dom acts of kindness is a bless-
ing, sometimes way bigger than
the giver even knows.
At that moment, from the mid-
dle seat, Matthew says, "I still
can't sit down." What now? Oh,
the bottled water. Biting my lip
with a grin, I schlep the case to
the way back praying it can be
finagled one last time.
"Ya'll know Miss Jen is a little

crazy right?" They all giggle and
nod their cute heads in the midst
of my exasperation.
We did a bit more fine tuning
in the trunk and strategically
made room for seven little
hineys, six big-kid backpacks,
five ladies dancing, four baguette
loaves, three woven baskets, two
pounds of ziti, one case of water
and a spinach salad in a pear tree.
Whew. Off we went. The
children roared with laughter
when I "forgot" where we were
going. Missing a turn to the kid's
house was just the icing on this
afternoon cake. Laughter is such
good food for the soul. Thank
goodness we do lots of it while
logging our many miles in the
family car.
A joyful spirit in the midst of
the turbulence, this is what keeps
us going when it seems there is
nothing left to give.
My kids are learning that their
mom is human. U-turns are not a
bad thing, simply a realignment
of where we are headed. Asking
for a helping hand is another sign
of being human. Sometimes
doing things on our own saves
face, but not our sanity. Finding
that balance is the key. Hmmm -
wonder what that's like?

Insurers flee Florida

Gov. Charlie Crist and a
nearly unanimous
Legislature hailed the
arrival of a new era for Florida's
property insurance system. They
promised lower rates, greater
availability of insurance and a
more vibrant insurance market.
Today, however, the outcome
appears increasingly clear: The
"reforms" have failed to achieve
lasting rate reductions, and they
have led many private insurers
to reduce or eliminate their
exposure to Florida's daunting
Worse, in the event of a major
disaster on a scale of Hurricane
Katrina, these reforms also
could lead to massive hikes in
taxes and insurance premiums
for almost everyone in the state.
Although the legislation con-
tained dozens of new provisions,
its crux lies in two related sets of
regulations. One lets the Florida
Citizens Property Insurance
Corp. (a state agency) compete
with private insurers.
The other key provision vast-
ly expands the Florida
Hurricane Catastrophe Fund's
role in providing backup reinsur-
ance coverage for Citizens and
the private companies operating
in the state. This backup cover-
age functions as insurance for
insurance companies. It pays off


only when

certain "cat-
In theory,
the plan's
first element
- expanding
Citizens -


ments - attached to every
Floridian's homeowners' and
automobile insurance policies -
could easily double the $1,100
average annual premium for
automobile insurance.
Simply abolishing the Cat
Fund won't help. Without it -
and the private insurers' manda-
tory participation in it - Citizens'
own liabilities would increase
even further. That's a problem
because Citizens is already the
largest insurer in the state, and it
will probably write half of all the
property-insurance policies in
Florida by the end of 2008.
Worse, at a time when the
property insurers have been
fleeing the state, McCarty has
now given Floridians another
reason to worry. His decision to
escalate a property-insurance
disagreement by barring Allstate
from writing automobile insur-
ance in Florida may herald a
similar retreat of private auto
Several options loom - all
unattractive. Simply deregulat-
ing the market and letting insur-
ers set rates freely - something
that worked pretty well in Illinois
- would send premiums soaring
in the short run and thus seems
politically impossible. Other pro-
posals would make Citizens' poli-
cyholders pay their own way and
would put the Cat Fund on
firmer footing.
Meanwhile, elected officials'
efforts to demonize insurers
could prove counterproductive.
Most already consider Florida's
insurance market the nation's
worst. If they're continually
abused, they could well with-
draw from the state, leaving
Floridians with no homeowners'
insurance options at all except
for Citizens.
In short, retaining the 2007
"reforms" without making seri-
ous changes carries the grave
long-term risk of requiring vastly
higher taxes and insurance pre-
miums for all Floridians. Given
its modest, transient benefits,
there's no reason do this.
Therefore, when Florida law-
makers begin mulling insurance
legislation for the 2008 session
that begins on March 4, they
ought to consider proposals to
abolish Citizens, privatize the
Cat Fund and, in short, undo
nearly all of last January's mis-

Depend On Us For Life:"

Foster care
On behalf of Family Support
Services of North Florida, Inc., our
foster parents, the GAL, the
Dependency Court Judges, DCF
and the children, we would like to
thank the Nassau County Commis-
sion and the Fernandina Beach City
Commission for their proclamation
of Foster Care Awareness Month in
Nassau County and the city of
Fernandina Beach.
On the First Coast on any given
day of the year, there are approxi-
mately 3,200 children in the foster
care system. In this region alone,
we see a weekly average of 32 new
children coming through the doors
of the Nassau/Duval County court-
houses. The good news is that the
majority of these children have lov-
ing biological families that open up
their homes, but there are many
other children that need a "foster"
family to care for them while their
parents try to rebuild their lives.
Solutions to the root causes of
why we have a foster care system
are not as numerous as one would
anticipate. Some of the reasons are
financial, substance abuse, domes-
tic violence and, in rare cases, phys-
ical abuse and abandonment. These
children come in to the foster care
system at no fault of their own.
What we do know is that children
are more likely to develop posi-
tively when they live in a home with
a stable, permanent family. The mis-
sion of Family Support Services of
North Florida, Inc., is that when
children must be removed from
home because of abuse or neglect,
the goal is to place them in a safe,
permanent home as soon as possi-
ble, with their own family or an
adoptive family.
As lead agency for foster care
and adoption on the First Coast,
Family Support Services knows
well the unselfish, sacrificial love
poured into the lives of our chil-
dren in foster care by Nassau

County foster families. Our foster
parents provide a safe haven of sta-
bility, shelter and support to chil-
dren who come into our care due to
abuse or neglect. We have limited
words in our vocabulary to thank
these families who literally change
the future for children. But we also
realize that children belong with
their biological families when there
is a safe, loving environment for
the children.
Sadly I report that the number
of children entering the foster care
system is outpacing the number of
qualified persons in Nassau County
who are willing to be licensed to
care for them. Becoming a foster
parent isn't difficult and the length
of time you open your home to one
of our children is completely up to
you. Some of our families foster
children for years, some for only a
day or a week. Some of our foster
parents serve for a short season
and care for one or two children,
some for more than 30 years, shel-
tering more than 800!
Log on to www.fssjax.org for
additional information. Perhaps
being a foster parent isn't for you?
Don't worry, there are a lot of other
opportunities for you to touch the
lives of these children such as
remembering them on their birth-
day by sending a card, mentoring,
providing respite care for a foster
parent, sponsoring a child for a
sports, art or music activity or just
remembering these delicate chil-
dren in your prayers at church.
Thank you again for helping
bring awareness of the children's
need for additional foster parents in
Nassau County and for helping cel-
ebrate those already providing
much needed shelter in the storm
for hurting children and teens. You
know, these aren't THOSE chil-
dren, or THEIR children, these are
OUR children and OUR future.

Family Support Services of

affordable insurance from the
state when the private market
can't. The second element -
expanding the "Cat Fund" -
offers private insurers cheaper
reinsurance, thereby allowing
them to cut their rates.
But it hasn't worked out that
way. While Citizens uses only
Cat Fund coverage, all major pri-
vate insurers writing homeown-
ers' policies not only met their
legal mandate to purchase Cat
Fund coverage, but they also
turned around and purchased
private reinsurance anyway.
Although Crist, Insurance
Commissioner Kevin McCarty
and other critics have suggested
that insurers did this out of
greed, there's a better explana-
tion: The insurance companies
realized that Florida's Cat Fund
likely couldn't survive a Katrina-
class storm.
Insurers know it's not pru-
dent to depend too much on a
single state, and they lack confi-
dence in Florida's plan to issue
$30 billion in bonds to back the
Cat Fund if a catastrophe
That's a lot larger than the
nation's largest-ever sale of
municipal bonds: an $11 billion
California issue. Nobody - not
even the Cat Fund's guardians at
the State Board of
Administration - can promise
that those bonds will actually
find buyers. If the Cat Fund can't
sell enough bonds, it will col-
lapse and leave nearly limitless
liabilities for insurers and the
Citizens itself isn't really any
more stable. Although many
Floridians currently save money
thanks to its lower-than-market
rates, these rates cannot last. In
fact, everyone in Florida could
end up paying for them after the
next big storm.
That's because existing law
lets Citizens and the Cat Fund
impose enormous new taxes
(called "special assessments")
without any additional approval
from the Legislature or the vot-
ers. If Florida had to issue all $30
billion authorized in potential
Cat Fund bonds, those assess-

Like several others in the community with close ties
to the Egans Creek Greenway, I think there is a basic
lack of understanding that is carrying this discussion
on to excess. That point is: I, among others, have no
reason to want to see a grand experiment carried out
in my backyard (NIMBY?).
There seems to be a lack of understanding among
those on the periphery or are lacking an understand-
ing of the "wants" of the adjacent landowners. We

The city commission has voted twice to restore
the area from Jasmine south to freshwater. A point to
be aware of: the idea of using wastewater to improve
the freshwater flow to better facilitate an estuarine
system is full of trouble. The gray water is called many
other less fancy names because it is not usable at any
point for human contact. Thus the use of effluent
becomes the end of man's use of the creek. With no
human contact and bans on eating anything from the
creek, what has been gained. I would offer, what has
been lost?
This game has proceeded too far. The objections
have been allowed by the St Johns River Water
Management District (SJRWMD). The objections
offered are supposed to be couched in "the effect on
the substantial interests of the petitioner." It was dis-
missed once for lack of standing. The second request

Tiger conservation
A world without tigers may be easy for some to live
in. But for me and other tiger conservationists, it
would be a very sad time. This magnificent species is
being poached at an alarming rate. It is said that at least
one tiger is poached every day, and that by the year
2010 all tiger sub-species will be extinct in the wild.
It is astonishing to imagine that a species that has
been around for one million years is going to go extinct
in a little over 100 years. Many people have no idea just
how endangered the tiger is. This is their time to edu-
cate and to be educated.
Three sub-species of tiger have already gone
extinct. As a tiger conservationist, I urge all of you to
help protect the remaining five. We can do this by
raising awareness of the threats tigers face, by edu-
cating your children and future generations and donat-
ing to tiger protection agencies such as www.save
thetigerfund.org. All of these things put together can
help end the pointless slaughter of this beautiful ani-
Surprisingly, there are a lot of people that do not
even know what a tiger is. For those people and the rest
of you, I have a roaring good place for you to visit: the
Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary. This is a non-
profit rescue center for unlawfully owned and mis-
treated cats. The majority of the residents are Siberian
tigers. But we also have lions, mountain lions, leopards,
serval and a couple of arctic foxes. Come out and see
the new tiger cubs, they're so adorable!
The next fundraiser date is Saturday, March 8.
This a nighttime feeding event, from 4-7 p.m. Feeding
starts at 7 p.m. and usually lasts 30 minutes. Cost is $10
per person, 7 years old and up, children 3-6 are $5, 2
years and under free. If you stay for the night feeding
it is $5 extra for 3 and up, 2 and under is still free.

tory here with twice weekly presentations, this year
focusing on three exceptional individuals, and partic-
ularly one of our island's true heroes - Robert Sutton.
He was a man born into slavery more than 150 years
ago, whose story stills speaks to us, and yet is not well
In late February 1862, only a year into the Civil War,
the Union Army, 15,000 men strong, came to Amelia
Island on 20 ships, and the Confederate forces on the
island left without a fight, accompanied by the white
population and as many of their slaves as they could
find. Within weeks, escaped slaves began flocking to
the island and freedom. Robert Sutton was one of
those escaped slaves and, like many enslaved men, he
came to the island first by himself to check out the sit-
uation, and then returned to bring out his wife and fam-
In the summer of 1862, Lincoln made the fateful
decision to free, and more importantly arm, the slaves.
Amelia Island immediately became one of the prime
sites for recruitment of African-Americans into the
Union Army. Many of these new recruits were then
sent to Hilton Head where they became part of the first
all black regiment - the First South Carolina
Volunteers. Among those who joined was Robert
Very few, North or South, believed in the fall of 1862
that slaves could make effective soldiers, and these
black soldiers were given the job of providing proof.
And so in January of 1863, parts of the regiment came,
commanded by white officers, but effectively led by
Sutton, to Fort Clinch, where at dusk they headed up
the St Marys River looking for a fight. The island was
nearly all black at that time, save for the garrisoning
Union soldiers, so it is a certainty that the entire pop-
ulation of the island lined the banks of the Amelia
River that night to see such an astounding thing, their
husbands, their brothers, their sons, wearing Union
blue and going up a river to fight for their freedom, and
for that of 4.5 million other enslaved human beings.
After midnight, somewhere above the town of St
Marys, they disembarked and marched into the woods
where they came across a group of Confederate cav-
alry ironically out that night searching for slaves head-
ed to Amelia Island and freedom. There was a sharp
fight and Sutton was wounded three times, once in the
head. But the men proved what they had to prove, that
black men would stand, and they would fight as sol-
Six days later they went up that river again, this time
to retrieve bricks lying around at an old brickyard.
They had no trouble getting up the river and getting
the bricks, but as they were returning to Fort Clinch
they ran into murderous fire from the banks of the nar-
row St Marys River. Robert Sutton was in the pilot-
house firing two rifles beside the white captain. The
captain was shot dead, and Sutton took the wheel and
returned them safely to Fort Clinch.
The Civil War may have been fought long ago, but
its aftermath lingers today. We should do more to rec-
ognize these brave men who fought so well for their
freedom here, and particularly Robert Sutton.
This month at the Amelia Island Museum of History
we have been celebrating Robert Sutton and other
heroes who can teach us so much about the value of
freedom, and how precious it is. But we need to do
more. It is time for a plaque prominently displayed and
placed along the Amelia River commemorating these
men, and particularly Robert Sutton.

Dumb and dumber
Damn Coleman ("In U.S., ignorance is not bliss,"

dumber -just look at how many of them are registered

supposedly couldn't figure how to cast a ballot or

Animal truths
I have two dog-related businesses in this county.
One is Dog Leg Productions, a kennel and dog train-
ing center. The other is a charitable organization called
Project C.H.A.N.C.E., which offers assistance dogs
to children with autism and mental health disabilities
as well as adults with physical challenges.
I moved to Fernandina Beach three years ago from
Mandarin. I am 54 years old and have been in the
dog business for 30 years. Here is my resume: canine
control officer; cruelty investigator; shelter operations
management; director of education; grant writer; serv-
ice dog trainer; volunteer with shelters in Nassau and
Duval counties to rehabilitate the "worst" dogs to see
if they can be "fixed" or have to be euthanized; special

"Besides nutrition, faith, politics and sports inspire me to write" for Voice of the People,
says longtime contributor Willyne Blanchard.

Passionate about writing,

'born again' to nutrition


Whether writing in defense of eggs, decrying
transfats or applauding the elimination of sodas in
schools, Willyne Blanchard has been a frequent
contributor to the Voice of the People column for
many years.
In addition to health issues, recent letter topics
include praise for University of Florida quarter-
back Tim Tebow and Jacksonville Jaguars Head
Coach Jack Del Rio as well as comparing friend
and former city commissioner Patricia Thompson
to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
"I'm a truth seeker," said Blanchard, "and care
about people of all ages - from womb to tomb; if
only one person is helped by my shared knowl-
edge, it's worth it."
Originally from Louisiana, Blanchard moved to
Amelia Island in 1954 when her husband began
working at Smurfit-Stone.
While raising her four children in 1966,

sight committee to separate Nassau County Animal
Control and Nassau Humane Society.
My website contains my philosophy and mission
statement as a professional in the dog industry. It
states do everything possible to keep the dog in its
home barring no unusual circumstances. The second
refers to keeping children safe from dogs with bad
behaviors. Please let us remember that dogs are not
born bad.
This is why I am writing this letter:
1) I am tired of the bickering among the media, the
think-they-knowers, the government sector and the
concerned citizens.
2) The first oversight committee should have been
allowed more time to accomplish their goals.
3) The Nassau Humane Society was invited to join
the Pet Alliance Nassau and they chose to wait.
4) The 501(c)3 animal rescue groups involved in
PAN have a mission: to help dogs and cats stay healthy
and loved. PAN was formed to help these groups raise
money, educate the public, promote adoptions, encour-
age spay/neuter.
5) Help Tommy Seagraves, the sheriff, to take over
the department of Animal Control.
a) If this happens the name needs to be changed to
animal services and enforcement.
b) There needs to be a dispatcher for incoming calls
c) A new image campaign
d) A director who can delegate with experience and
lead with clear vision.
e) At least four animal control officers on the road
f) At least six kennel technicians 7 days a week so
they can rotate and have regular days off.
g) One person in-house who can be all about the
h) Accurate, open and efficient record keeping.
This is from my heart, from my experience and
from my frustrations. Stop the talking and start the vol-
unteering. We will need foster families for sick puppies,
heartworm positive quiet homes for recovery, homes
where dropped-from-car window kittens can mend,
warm hearts who can give time and comfort to senior
citizen dogs who were given up and abandoned
because their health needs were expensive and more


Blanchard wrote play reviews for the News-Leader
Then-editor Don Caldwell asked Blanchard if she
would also write stories about people in the com-
munity along with a photograph.
"I told Don, I'll never find enough words for a
story each week.'"
Caldwell said she would and he was right.
Blanchard continued writing a weekly feature col-
umn for the News-Leader until 1976.
A nutrition conference she attended in 1984
began another writing career, that of letters to the
editor author.
After hearing Dr. Ruth Yale Long speak in
Houston, Blanchard says she 'I..... 'born
again' in nutrition."
"It's a topic I've always been drawn to," said
Blanchard. "Even as a child."
When not busy writing letters, Blanchard
enjoys reading, cooking, bike riding, swimming,
playing tennis and going out on Friday night dates
with her husband of 55 years, Al.

Sister city
How would you like to become a sister town to
Sag Harbor, a historic, bayside whaling village in the
Hamptons on Long Island, N.Y? The town is a two-hour
drive from Manhattan and buses and trains are avail-
able for transportation to the Big City.
As sister towns, we could exchange houses, have
writers, seminars, art gatherings and inter-galleries,
work exchanges and barter opportunities (and what-
ever you can think of).
Right now is a moment in time before the taxes get
too high for artists and small, quaint shops to stay in
Fernandina and Sag Harbor have a lot in common.
At the end of the shopping district, is, yes, a harbor,
where you can see the water and go out on the dock,
just like Fernandina Beach.
Both towns have charming historic buildings,
wonderful restaurants, art galleries, community
parades and events and friendly people. Like
Fernandina, Sag Harbor has mostly middle-class res-
idents where the locals really work and the young
families go to church. The beautiful sweeping
ocean beaches are a short drive away. The wealthy

There truly is no place like home

There is no place like home. Dorothy
said it. Most of us say it when we return
from trips away. Not everyone has a home
that is safe or one to which we want to
return. Thanks to Micah's Place Domestic
Violence Shelter, women in our county have
a place to go and escape from abuse and find
a temporary home and, hopefully, a perma-
nent home that is peaceful and safe.
Each year just as spring begins to tease
our island azaleas and buds are popping, the
Micah's Place annual Home and Garden
Tour offers a unique opportunity to tour
some of the island's most beautiful homes.
'The Home and Garden Tour generates
vital funds to sustain critical programs
offered by Micah's Place," according to
Shandra Riffey, executive director.
Traditionally, the homes selected for
each spring tour are very different, reflect-
ing the lives and personalities of those gen-
erous enough to open their private resi-
dences for tours.
One home reflects its owner's worldwide
travel. Its architecture is reminiscent of a
French chateau. Jean and Mike Luke's
house stands 19 feet above sea level with
views of the Atlantic Ocean and the
Intracoastal Waterway. Each room and level
offers museum-quality treasures. Among the
many treasures are an Elliot grandfather
clock, circa 1849, and ancient Chinese sculp-
tures. Another room is filled with Third
World artwork.

In contrast, anoth-
er featured home is a
reflection of another
couple's focused col-
lection of Native
American art. Becky
Grimes has been col-
lecting dating back to
her teens.

ture greets visitors

FROM THE Becky and Tommy
Grimes have an
PORCH impressive collection
of renowned artists,
including C. Ford Riley, Molly Mabe,
Duncan McClellan and A. Garry Arlbritton.
Their collection includes Northeastern and
Eastern folk art.
When Don and Betsy Millen moved from
the thriving metropolis of Atlanta and their
antique-filled home, they wanted a change
and a home that reflected their new life on
Amelia Island. Their second floor condo
makes the best of its oceanside location.
Each window offers a beautiful view. The
soft colors chosen by the Millens reflect the
sun and sand that make up their new home.
In contrast, the fourth home on the tour
is located on the marsh. Inside and outside
spaces combine in a perfect marriage. The

house, 22 years old, has been extensively
remodeled. The house reverses the tradi-
tional and expected floor plan by using the
second floor as the primary living space and
using the first level for guest rooms, a
screened porch and sunroom.
In addition to the tour, a special lunch is

rant nestled in the Plantation Spa and Shops

I sat at the edge wrapped in a towel

jumping with her. Instead I just sat
there...watching. Why didn't I jump in?
Scared, untrusting that the water
below wouldn't give me up to the air
above, unsure the flotation device

would work. My daughter yelled over her shoulder,
"Mom, watch, I pop right back up." I was reminded of
another time her faith had made me take another look
at myself. We both had prayed all night that I would get a
job the next day, but when the next day arrived, I was too
scared to go to the interview. My daughter simply said,
"Mom, I don't think we can move mountains with that
kind of faith. If you keep thinking like that, we shouldn't
even bother getting out of bed." I got the job that day...
and today I will swim with my daughter.

have coveted their position and
power, which is sin.
"One definition of worship that
I like is giving our mind's atten-
tion and our heart's affection to
something or someone. This defi-
nition says nothing about God.
Instead, it reveals that worship is
natural to us. By nature, we all have
things that we're passionate about.
Whether sports, cars, shopping,
learning or anything else, fallen
people long to worship everything
but God. This is idolatry. When we
come to Christ in faith, He reveals
this to us in His Word.

games and fun motions for mem-
orizing Bible verses.
"There is also an attendance
prize; rewards for returning com-
pleted MAP (Mission, Action,
Plan) books as well as a choice of
treats for every child. We look for-
ward to greeting your child as we
prepare to laugh, sing, dance and
have fun as we learn about God,
the world He created, the plan He
has for each of our lives and how to
connect the Bible, God's Holy
Word, to the lives we live today.
Please join us each and every
Sunday as we give your children
the opportunity to share prayer
concerns, to plan ways to commit
their lives to living more like Christ
and a safe place to ask questions.

Deuteronomy, chapter thirty-two

that the Lord's portion is His peo-

with God? That's right, He actual-

are the source of His pleasure,

In a slump, be a vigilant consumer

A classic way to save
money is purchasing
during a down market.
Coats are cheaper at
the end of winter. Bakery bread
made Monday is heavily dis-
counted by Tuesday. Knick-
knacks left over at the end of a
garage sale often are given away.
So with some home prices
rolled back to 2003 levels, now
may be the time to buy.
Consumers, however, need to
remain prudent researchers as
they seek value in the down-
turn. General trends - prices
nationally and in Florida are
falling - may take on a particu-
lar nuance in a specific market.
For instance, recent national
analysis from Zillow.com,
a website that estimates home
values, prompted this conclu-
"With consecutive declines
over the past five quarters, we
haven't seen the housing mar-
ket hit bottom yet, and it may
very well get worse before
things get better," Zillow vice
president of data and analytics
Stan Humphries said in a news
But throughout Florida,
some areas have touched bot-
tom while others remain prone
to further price erosion. Zillow's
data shows the following raw
* In Orange County/
Orlando, the median price (the
point where exactly half the
houses cost more and exactly
half cost less) for an "average"
house in December was
$211,922 - a one-year decline of
12 percent.
* In Miami/Fort Lauderdale
(different from Miami-Dade
County), the median price in
December was $259,659 - a 14
percent drop from a year ago.
* In Leon County (including
Tallahassee), the median home
price was $187,024 - a 1.4 per-
cent drop from a year ago.
While there's no way to
absolutely know when home
prices have hit bottom, con-
sumers can learn more by con-
sulting with local realtors and
real estate attorneys. Some ana-
lysts say that prices in South
Florida still may be dropping,
while parts of the Panhandle

When inquiring about a spe-
cific market, getting a feel for
inventory is another important
piece of information: The more
houses on the market, the more
pressure for prices to fall. Jobs
and wages also are key ele-
ments, and chambers of com-
merce can be good starting
points there.
Once research indicates that
a particular home or neighbor-
hood may be a good deal, the
basics of home buying take
hold. These can include:
* Keeping resale in mind:
The home design might be
unique, but will a future buyer
think the same? Understand
what nearby development -
commercial and residential - is
planned and how it may impact
the way the house and neigh-
borhood are perceived in the
future. Be wary if your intent is
the quick-flip. Just because a
property has increased by dou-
ble-digit percentage points in
the past is no guarantee of
future performance. Also, tight-
ening loan requirements may
have cut down on the potential
pool of buyers.
* Getting your financial
house in order: More stringent
loan rules might impact you.
Many lenders now require at
least a 10 percent down pay-
ment - $20,000, for example, on
a $200,000 purchase price.
Before you bid on a house, shop
for a mortgage and know what
you qualify for. Buyers with
secured financing present a
stronger position.
* Negotiating everything:

action is on the table, from clos-

The following are the proposed amendments:

Amendments to the Callahan Comprehensive Plan,

Zednik is


from injury
I see very few sports
injuries anymore that
make me catch my
breath. However, every
now and then there is one that
gives you that twinge in the
pit of your stomach. The first
one I can remember was
when the Redskins' Joe
Theisman's tibia snapped in
two when he was sacked by
Lawrence Taylor years ago.
The most recent one took
place on the ice in Buffalo
Feb. 10. The Florida Panthers
were taking on the Buffalo
Sabres. Panther Olli Jokinen
came across the ice, was
upended, his feet went up
awkwardly in the air and one
of his skates came across the
neck of teammate Richard
Zednik immediately put his
hand to his throat, but it was
not enough to stop the flow of
blood spilling onto the ice. His
carotid artery had been sliced
in half. Zednik made it to the
sideline and was quickly
attended to by medical staff
and rushed to Buffalo General
Hospital, where he underwent
two hours of surgery to sew
the artery back together.
Zednik lost five units of
blood and very nearly lost his
life. Unbelievably, Zednik suf-
fered no brain injury from this
and is expected to make a full
recovery in just 6-8 weeks.
The Panthers' website has
received more than 20,000
get-well messages. Zednik
also took a call from the presi-
dent of his native Slovakia,
Ivan Gasparovic.
The 32-year-old Zednik
said he instantly felt the stab-
bing pain in his neck,
assumed the worst and knew
he had to get to the bench
before he passed out. He said
that once there, he began to
think of his four-year-old
daughter, Ella.
"I remember thinking, 'Am
I going to see her grow up?'"
Zednik said.
"We're all skating out
there, basically, with two
knives attached to our feet,"
said veteran forward Glen
Metropolit, one of Zednik's
Many are now looking for
the National Hockey League
to consider mandatory neck
protection. While many ama-
teur hockey programs
throughout the U.S., Canada
and Europe require neck pro-
tection for its players, the
same cannot be said for the
NHL. A quick survey showed
only about half of NHL goalies
wear some extra neck protec-
tion and few, if any, NHL for-
wards or defensemen wear
neck guards.
Despite the fact that play-
ers know they offer a measure
of protection, once they reach
the professional ranks, they
discard them because they
find them too confining, claus-
trophobic or simply too hot.
The NHL Players Association
is planning to look into a num-
ber of safety issues, including
eye and neck protection, and
will increase focus on educat-
ing players about on-ice safety.
However, most do not feel this
protection should be mandato-
ry because players are resist-
ant to change and, although
the consequences of injury
can be d. <:i i:iihL. the likeli-
hood of this type of injury is
The injury has been
viewed on YouTube more
than a million times, but
Zednik said he has seen the
footage only once and won't
watch it again.
"At first when I was in the
Buffalo hospital, I was like,
'No, I don't want to watch.' I
was like still kind of in shock.
But then when I got back to
Florida ... I was curious, exact-
ly, how the skate came to the
neck," he said. "I watched it
once. That's enough."

Pirate netters

sweep Hornets

The Pirates won all of their matches Wednesday
when they hosted the Hornets at the Amelia Island
Plantation. The Pirates won 14-0.
"Yulee is a real new team that seems to be getting
better every year," said Mark Durr, head tennis coach
at Fernandina Beach High School. "Their coach,
Richard Schweitzer, will make some real progress
over time with their program."
In boys singles action, Tyler Nowakowski defeat-
ed Joe McDonald 8-1; Austin Moule defeated Joey
Wade 8-0; Andrew Wood beat Terry Mott 8-3; Jason
Olbina defeated Jeff Beluesat 8-1; and Patrick Wells
topped Josh Welson 8-2.
Nowakowski teamed up with Moule to defeat
Wade and McDonald 8-4 in doubles action. Wood
and Olbina beat Josh Hopper and Mott at No. 2.
Rachel Gillespie was playing the No. 1 spot for the
Lady Pirates. She defeated Britney Dove 8-3. Ashleigh
Mullis beat Jennie Clark 8-0; Kelli Gies beat Brook
Milane 8-1; Meghan Smith won over Kaglan Towers
8-1; and Michelle Hamscomb defeated Courtney
Lowery 8-0.
In doubles, Gillespie and Mullis teamed up to beat
Dove and Courtney Lathrop 8-1. Smith and Gies
defeated Ashley Burris and Chelsey Susbilla 8-0.
"We are off to a good start at 3-0," Durr said of the
FBHS boys team. "We are in an extremely tough dis-
trict, but we are focussing on one match and even one
game at a time. Our boys team is stronger than it has
been in years.
"Our entire varsity line-up is returning players,
which includes the core of our team. Tyler, Austin and
Andrew, Nos. 1, 2 and 3, are all seniors who have been
with us for four years. These young men are and
have been extremely valuable for us. They all have
exceptional attitudes and have done what it takes in
the offseason as far as practicing and conditioning to
be able to compete at this level.
'Tyler is our leader on the court. His game is
stronger than we have ever seen from him. He's not
only hitting with more power, but is much more accu-
rate at placing the ball all around the court. He's
become a very intelligent player over the years and
is at the top of his game right now.
"Jason and Patrick, at Nos. 4 and 5, are also return-
ing and are major contributors to our success in spite
of an injury that occurred during soccer season.
Jason Olbina has stepped in at number four and has
been real solid for us. Patrick is another one of those
who has obviously dedicated himself during the off-
season to being a better player. He exemplifies the
kind of blue collar character we have on this boys
The Lady Pirates are also 3-0 on the season.
"Our girls team has more youth than the boys,"
Durr said. "We are glad to have our one senior leader
in Kelli Gies. She keeps us all in line and is playing a
real solid number three.
"Our No. 1 is Rachel Gillespie, a 10th grader who
jumps all the way from No. 5 last year. Needless to say,
we are all really pleased with Rachel's progress. She
is another soccer player who brings constant energy
and focus with her on the tennis court. We don't
think there is a ball that Rachel can't get to. We love
her hustle.
"Ashleigh, our No. 2, is our core. She does every-
thingwe ask her to and, with a smile. She's the exam-
ple of what is Lady Pirate tennis. This is her third sea-
son with us. Her game has come along way thanks to
the work and dedicated efforts that she has put in her-
"We are really excited about our ninth grader who
has broken into the varsity lineup, Meghan Smith.
Meghan is a strong and aggressive player who real-
ly is hitting the ball well, especially for someone as
young. We're excited to have her for four years.
"We have been very lucky to have the wonderful
staff at Amelia Island Plantation open up their fantastic
facility to us for all of our home matches. It is a real
special treat for us as well as our opponents to play in
such a tennis friendly environment."

Pepper, Bales sign to play volleyball at Indian River

Yulee High School has its first
two athletic scholarship recipients
since the new school opened in
Hannah Bales and Amanda
Peppler recently signed national
letters of intent to play volleyball at
Indian River Community College in
Fort Pierce. Both received full ath-
letic scholarships and qualified for
Bright Futures scholarships.
The pair were honorees at a
celebration with teammates, fami-

"This is a tradition we want to
start at Yulee High School," said

at YHS. "Anytime someone signs,
we want to celebrate."
The two tried out at Florida

"I wanted to wait to see if any-
thing else would come along,"
Bales said. "We both went to Indian
River and tried out. When we
found out we had scholarships, I
took that."
They both were excited about
their new school.

Amanda Peppler and Hannah Bales made history recently. The pair of Yulee High School seniors signed letters of intent to play
volleyball at Indian River Community College in Fort Pierce, making them the first signees for YHS since the school opened its
doors in 2006. Pepper, left, is pictured with her parents, Susan and Mark Peppler. Right, Bales is pictured with her mother,

"It's really pretty and it's right
on the beach," Peppler said.
They said they hope to contin-

years at Indian River.
'They kind of work with UCF
so that could be a possibility,"
Pepper said.

Bales is from Yulee but Peppler
lives on Amelia Island.
"I came out here last year
because of friends and then I knew
the volleyball program would be
strong," Peppler said.
"I knew both of them had the
potential to play at the next level,"

said Jackson, who is also the head
volleyball coach for the Lady
Hornets. 'They're going to bring a
lot to their team, not only skill-
wise. They're coachable. They're
true team players. This is going to
be a great move for them.

P uppy drum and red drum

tidal estuaries and shal-
low flats during the past
few days. Black drum are run-
ning during the flood tide, while
red drum are feeding during the
falling tides.
"During a recent fishing trip
to Cumberland Sound, Hank
Martinez and I did quite well
with both red and black drum,"
Don Whitman said. "During the
flooding tide, we caught black
drum while fishing the deep
sides of oyster bars with fresh
shrimp on the bottom. As the
tide turned and began to fall, we
began catching red drum while
drifting live shrimp and popping
cork combos over oyster bars."
Backwater fishermen have
done real well this past week
during the falling tide while drift-
ing live shrimp under boat
docks. The best technique is to
drift a float and live shrimp
combo in one to three feet of
water under the dock during the
high falling tide. As the tide falls,

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.

'Company' a
News Leader
Sometimes dramatic irony occurs
when you least expect it - like at a
recent production of "Company" at the
Alhambra Dinner Theatre.
Act 1 of the Stephen Sondheim
musical comedy - about a bachelor
exploring the pleasures and perils of
love and marriage through his mar-
ried friends - was under way when out
popped a couple or three swear words
from one of the characters on stage.
That was enough to send one audi-
ence member into conniptions, as she
announced to her table and far beyond

"Rolls at The Ritz" by Jay Koka, above, and "Atmosphere and light" by
Barry Rowe, top, members of the Automotive Fine Arts Society who will

that she "wasn't going to sit there and
listen to cuss words" - a fact she
repeated loudly, several times, on her
way out the door.
Left to slink in his chair was her
husband and his friends, while on
stage the scene about the square wife
and her loving but frustrated husband
played out. (To his credit, the hus-
band stayed until intermission.)
Word to the public: "Company" is
an edgy adult musical with some

100 years of automotive history
During his diverse career, Jones raced just about every kind of car
around, including sports cars, sprint cars, Indy cars, midget racers,
stock cars and off-road vehicles Hi- 1963

in 1967, he piloted one of the m, u

businessman after his racing
career ended, Jones is a mem-
ber today of more than 20 automotive halls of fame.
The Thomas Flyer secured a historic win 100 years ago in the
famed New York-to-Paris "Great Race." Friday's seminar will be
devoted to the grueling race and will be led by Jeff Mahl, great-
grandson of George Schuster, one of the drivers of the winning car.
Additionally, the National Automobile Museum (formerly The
Harrah Collection) in Reno, Nevada, has agreed to let the concours
display the winning Thomas Flyer on show day.
The horsepower-hungry Trans-Am series of the late 1960s will be
the subject of Saturday's seminar, with some of the series' top drivers
recounting their experiences in a panel discussion with questions
and answers afterwards.
In addition to Parnelli Jones, the 1970 series champion, the con-

Acting ensemble saves 'Penelope'


Universal Press Syndicate

Penelope Wilhern has a pig
nose. Let's just get that out in the
open straightaway. It was a birth
defect caused by a family curse
that cannot be surgically fixed
because the carotid artery runs
through it, or some such. Still
with me?
Penelope (Christina Ricci) is
an adult now, and after having
lived a shuttered life inside a fan-
cifully decorated wing inside the
family manse, she is feeling rest-
less. The cause of her restless-
ness is not so much that she's
never been outdoors, but that
her mother is now trying to find
her a husband, to break the
curse, of course.
The great Catherine O'Hara
plays Jessica, the mother who is
at once loving toward and
repulsed by her pig-faced off-
spring. She can't get past the
defect to see her child's inner
beauty, and so neither can
Penelope. The thing is, Penelope
is eminently likable, if not lov-
able, and she isn't really all that
repulsive. Dare I say it: She's
kind of cute. But I am not a gold-
digging, blueblood suitor in this
film. And that's a good thing
because they all end up scream-
ing in terror and hurtling them-
selves through a second-story
window upon seeing the "hor-
ror" behind the scarf.
"Penelope" marks the directo-
rial debut of Mark Palansky,
whose obvious influence here is
Tim Burton. This film includes
scenes that specifically recall
Burton's "Big Fish," but mostly
it evokes "Edward Scissorhands"
- a far superior film than
"Penelope." But the two are sty-
listically similar and even share
the moral lesson of learning how

to be comfortable in one's own
What bumps the derivative
"Penelope" up from a two-star,
wait-for-video rating is the acting
ensemble. Give casting director
Susie Figgis a round of applause.
And Palansky while you're at it.
He was able to get these actors
to rise above the so-so script.
Is there any better character
actor working today than Peter
Dinklage? There is such great
skill in what he does, not the
least of which is that he makes
you not even notice that he's
only 4 feet tall, if that. Here he
plays a one-eyed paparazzi-type
reporter who's been on
Penelope's trail for years when
he hires Max, a down-and-out
trust-funder, to infiltrate the
Wilhern estate.
James McAvoy, hot off the
much-lauded "Atonement," not
to mention last year's 'The Last

King of N -i.,nd ' (for which he
was much-overlooked), plays
Max, who in trying to make a
buck falls for the unseen
Penelope. McAvoy and Ricci's
scenes where Max and Penelope
get to know each other - he's in
the family library, she's behind
the mirror on the wall - are the
best in the film. There is nothing
more sublime onscreen than wit-
nessing romance in its early
stages, especially if portrayed
with intelligence and wit.
And then there's Reese
Witherspoon - a bona fide A-lis-
ter - in a supporting role as
Penelope's first real friend.
Witherspoon likely took the
smaller role because she's also
one of the film's producers. No
matter. She blends in beautifully,
taking care to step back enough
so as not to hog (no pun intend-
ed) the spotlight from Ricci.

Treasure of Amelia Island'
Amelia Island is featured in a new novel by First
Coast journalist, M.C. Finotti. The Treasure of
Amelia Island is historical fiction for young adults
ages 9 and up and tells the story of Ana Jai Kingsley
and her children. It is published by Pineapple Press,
an award-winning regional publisher based in
Finotti will sign copies of her novel at The Book
Loft at 214 Centre St. in Fernandina Beach on
March 22 from 1-3 p.m.
The novel is set in 1813, a tumultuous time for
the Spanish colony of La Florida, and for 11-year-old
Mary Kingsley. Patriots from the United States want
to kick Spain out of Florida, take the land for them-
selves and enslave any freed people of color, like
Mary and her family.
In the middle of all this, Mary decides to search
for a legendary pirate treasure with her brother,
George, and half-brother, Diego. The treasure hunt
changes Mary Kingsley forever.
"Through the eyes of a child, M.C. Finotti is able
to seamlessly weave a captivating fictional tale into
the unbelievable but true history of the Kingsley
family," said Carmen Godwin, director of the Amelia
Island Museum of History, in a press release.
The novel is something of a departure for Finotti,

a former television reporter turned wedding colum-
nist for the Florida Times-Union. "There's romance
in this novel," said Finotti. "I was inspired to write it
after literally falling in love with Kingsley Plantation
years ago. It's a special place and Ana Jai Kingsley
and her children were special people in Florida his-
tory," she said.
Cummer Family Day
The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, 829
Riverside Ave., will host a Literacy and Art Family
Day on March 1 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The entire fami-
ly will enjoy a day at the museum filled with live
music, storytelling and literary art projects. Family
Day events will be held throughout the museum,
gardens and Art Connections. Admission is free.
'Reading Lolita'
Azar Nafisi, best-selling author of Reading Lolita
in Tehran: A Memoir in Books, will discuss 'The
Republic of the Imagination" at 7:30 p.m. March 4 at
the University Center Banquet Hall on the
University of North Florida campus.
Reading Lolita electrified its readers with a com-
passionate and often harrowing portrait of the
Islamic revolution in Iran and how it affected one

COMPANY Continued from 1B
bachelor Robert (Matthew Jay
Campbell) contemplates the
unique qualities of each of his
three girlfriends and gathers rela-
tionship advice from his married
friends around his 35th birthday.
Marta (Michelle Barry) is sexy
and tough; Kathy (Kristen Owen)
is kind and old-fashioned; and
April (Andrea Daveline) is a doe-
eyed airline hostess a la Reese
Witherspoon in the "Legally
Blonde" franchise.
Then there is the wealthy Man-
hattan society pair with several
divorces behind them; the long
married Harry and Esther, who
finish each other's sentences and
turn a blind eye to their partner's
vices; the new parents navigating
the pitfalls of family; newlyweds
for whom the sparkle has worn
off; and a bride with cold feet and
a doting fiance.
As the play unfolds in a series
of vignettes, we see love and mar-
riage from Robert's viewpoint in
his interactions with his friends,

who also act as the chorus of his
life. New York City is as much a
character as any of them and is
captured by Sondheim in all its
gritty, glamorous and neurotic
Robert discovers that relation-
ships, while often boring, some-
times unkind, once in a while
downright mean, occasionally
delusional and never perfect, are
essential to "Being Alive."
Other aptly named numbers
include "Sorry - Grateful," "You
Could Drive a Person Crazy,"
"Getting Married Today" and
"Have I Got a Girl For You."
"Company" first opened on
Broadway in 1970 and ran for 690
performances, winning six Tony
awards. It was revived in 2006 and
won the Tony for Best Musical
