Schools to trim teachers, staff

There will be dozens of fewer
teachers and other employees serv-
ing Nassau County Schools this fall
after $4 million in anticipated budg-
et cuts are implemented, schools
Superintendent John Ruis con-
firmed Wednesday.
Despite increasing student
enrollment, the local school district
is grappling with an expected reduc-
tion in state funding for the first
time in memory.
"I've been in this business 28
years, and I've never had less
money from the state than I did the
year before," said Susan Farmer,

tor of business

employees to
Ruis budget cuts,
Farmer said.
"When you have
80 percent of your budget in
salaries, that's the only place to go,"
she said.
Local schools' state funding has
been cut twice already during this
fiscal year, in October and March,
costing $2.3 million, Farmer said.

State legislators are meeting now to
determine how much more to cut
funding, and the school district is
preparing its budget for the year
that begins July 1 with a working
figure of $4 million less than when
this fiscal year began.
Ruis called that a "conservative
approach," but conceded the out-
look is uncertain until the economy
improves. The state funding cuts
are not a reflection of taxpayer sen-
timent as expressed in a constitu-
tional amendment earlier this year,
but rather are due to declining sales
taxes because of the economic
"Given the economy, and what's
happened to us this current fiscal

year, we have to anticipate what
happens in the next fiscal year," he
School administrators are pro-
jecting enrollment increases at

The district seeks to avoid lay-
offs of teachers. "We hope to absorb
a significant number of the (teach-
ers) reduced through resignations
or retirements," Ruis said.
Talks are ongoing with the
teachers' union to consider how to
implement the reduction in force,

Strip mall. Bar.

Church. Conflict.

The owners of a Yulee shopping
center have appealed a decision by
the Nassau County Growth
Management Department to pro-
hibit the establishment of a bar
Victoria's Place, 464017 State
Road 200, was to be the future
home of the Red Zone sports bar,
but a county ordinance prohibits
the sale of alcohol within 1,000 feet
of a church. Harbor Shores
Apostolic Church also is located in
the strip mall.
There should be an exception to
the ordinance for commercial prop-
erties, county commissioners were
told April 16 by former county attor-
ney Mike Mullin, now represent-
ing shopping center owner Ash
"Churches in this day and age,
start-up churches especially, by con-
venience move into strip malls, but
strip malls have other uses and we
certainly don't advocate eliminat-

Ban on wood substitute is history

The council decided on the new

at an April 15 meeting.
The controversial decision to
disallow HardiebokrdVas made at
an council meeting last November.

house is considered to be a "con-

The November ruling was
reversed last week because of new
evidence presented by Bob
Jenkns, owner of Atlantic Cust6om
Woodworks in Fernandina Beach.

Jenkins convinced the Historic
District Council that the wood sid-
ing now on the house was installed
after 1985, although it may be older
salvaged wood. He also pointed
out that, in order to keep the
integrity of the structure,
Hardieboard was a better choice
because it takes less maintenance.
"The house had been modified
through the years and very little of
the original house remains," wrote
Jenkins in a letter to the Planning
and Zoning Department. "This
home was built to be a modest
working-class house and there is

no significant architectural detail
on the structure."
"Installation of smooth
Hardieboard," he wrote, "will not
diminish the integrity or alter the
character of (the house's) envi-
ronment. The new siding will not
change the scale, texture and
detailing of the overall appearance
of the house as it will not be replac-
ing any historic features such as
beveled siding, decorative trim."

Angler is a membership program
a that's part of the nation's largest
association of recreational
boaters whose mission is to pro-
tect the interests of boat-owning
P freshwater anglers. With that in
mind, it recommends that anglers
should ask these five questions
when shopping for insurance for
their fishing boats:
1. Do you need an "actual cash
value" or "agreed value" policy? If
you have a claim, actual cash
value policies take depreciation
into account when reimbursing
for a loss. For example, if your 12-
year-old bass boat is totaled, you
will be reimbursed for its current
market value. Actual cash value
E policies are generally the less
expensive option. On the other
hand, agreed value policies are
more expensive, but pay for
repairs or replacement up to the

Father Neil J. Cornelli

Pittsburg, Kan., to Cornelius and Augusta (Donati)
Father Cornelli served his country in the United
States Army as a hospital chaplain during World War
II, moving with the troops into the
newly liberated France and
Germany as the German army
gave way. He also was pastor for
many parishes, starting in Detroit
at Our Lady of Help. After the war
he served in Australia, where he
started a school. Upon returning
to Detroit, he administered the
construction ofSt. Scholastica and
held the position of chaplain at the former St. Joseph
Hospital in Flint for 17 years. He officially retired in
In retirement, he pastored in Florida for a number
of churches, ending up at St. Michael's Catholic
Church in Fernandina Beach every winter from 1989-
2007. In a newspaper interview in 2005, he said of the
posting, "I thank God every day that I got this assign-
ment. I couldn't be happier." Father Neil's career

value stated
on the policy
- except for
a few speci-
fied items -
regardless of
the age or
condition of

the boat or equipment.
2. Is my fishing gear covered?
Any fishing boat insurance policy
should automatically include
some type of coverage for expen-
sive tackle. If the boat is trailera-
ble and used in freshwater, you
may find a policy that includes
this coverage without any addi-
tional cost.
3. What is the fine print on
using towing services? Some fish-
ing boat insurance policies
include on-the-water towing or
roadside assistance service. The
problem is that when you need to
call upon these non-emergency

services such as an on-the-
water gas delivery, a tow back to
the launch ramp or roadside tow
vehicle jumpstart it counts
against you as an insurance
claim. Find an insurance compa-
ny that offers them but does not
require you to file an insurance
claim in order to use them. You
shouldn't be penalized when tak-
ing advantage of these valuable
4. Where can I go? Unlike car
insurance that is good for every
state you drive in, most boat
insurance policies have what's
called "cruising areas" limiting
where the policy is in force.
Trailer your fishing boat outside
those areas and you'll need to call
your insurer for an "extension" to
ensure coverage remains in
effect. Find an insurance policy
that doesn't put limits on where
you can trailer your boat.

5. What about tournament
coverage? If you fish tourna-
ments, make sure you have the
liability coverage required. What
if you've paid your entry fee but
miss the tournament due to a
breakdown while trailering? Look
for a policy that offers some type
of reimbursement for your entry
fee if trailering troubles or other
covered losses prevent you from
BoatU.S. Angler offers insur-
ance policies specifically
designed to meet the needs of
today's anglers with fishing

Secondary school students will
start their day later this fall, Ruis
said, as part of the cost-cutting
measures. Teachers will not have
a planning hour during the school
day, but instead have it first thing
in the morning. They will then
teach six straight classes.
"That will allow us to utilize
every teacher for every period...
that's really about the only way we
could address it," Ruis said.
The district will still meet state
classroom size limits, which
require individual core classes to
have no more than four students

said he hopes to find common
ground between his clients and
the church, as well as other area
churches that object to the bar.
"Are you comfortable with hav-
ing representatives from the com-
munity as well as the interested
parties there to help resolve this
issue?" Commissioner Barry
Holloway asked.
"Absolutely," Mullin said.
Holloway questioned the legit-
imacy of the appeal. "I guess the
problem I have is whenever we
have a controversial issue, we try
to find a loophole to get around
it," he said.
Mullin pointed out that "com-
mercial-intensive" districts are
exempted from the ordinance.
Although the location of the strip
mall is not zoned as such, its zon-
ing designation permits commer-
cial intensive uses.
Commissioner Jim B. Higgin-
botham was skeptical a compro-
mise can be reached. "How are
you going to find commonality with
a church to set up a liquor store or
a bar next door that they don't
want?" he asked.
However, the commission voted
to continue the hearing to May 5 at
5 p.m. and instructed Nassau

Atlantic Coast Federal Corp.
reported Tuesday that its first quar-

hurt by higher provision for loan
losses and higher non-interest
expense. Net income for the first
quarter was $24,000, down from
$785,000 in the first quarter of 2007.
Net interest income declined 16
percent, to $4.26 million from $5.06
million in the first quarter of 2007,
after the company increased loan
loss provisions because of the down-
turn in real estate values and an
increase in non-performing loans.

Hilliard cleanup draws biggest crowd ever
LIL SPINKS TCre____den
"l/est Nassau Correspondeint G..

Hilliard Action Committee
members are extremely pleased
with the outcome of the Annual
Hilliard Cleanulp on Saturday.
About 235 volunteers the largest
contingent ever took part in
sprucing up the town, using the
new Hilliard Town Hall as its head-
quarters for the first time.
The Annual Hilliard Cleanup is
co-sponsored by Keep Nassau
Beautiful and the Hilliard Action
Committee, on behalf of the town
of Hilliard.
'"We're tickled with the turnout.
It looks like it's bigger and better
than ever and it just shows the
community spirit that we have in
the town of Hilliard," said Mayor
David Buchanan during the
cookout following the cleanup.
In the past the numbers have
ranged from a low of 147 in
2005 to the previous high of 210 in
During the final cleanup plan-
ning meeting on April 14, commit-
tee members learned that the cam-
ouflage "I Love Hilliard" T-shirts
for volunteers were in short supply
and immediately placed another
order, which the town should
receive in May.
The committee knew the T-
shirts would be popular and that if
participation was as good as hoped,
they would run out. It also ran out
of doughnuts, but apparently any-
one interested in eating them had
already done so.
Of the eight "Mystery Bottles"
hidden in strategic places through-
out the cleanup area, only four
were discovered: two bottles
redeemable for VyStar Credit
Union savings bonds and two good
for $50 each.
A mystery remains concerning
what happened to the other four
bottles: one VyStar Credit Union
savings bond bottle and three good
for $50. The committee person who
hid the bottles said he went back to
all eight hiding places but the bot-
tles were gone. Officials believe
they were either discarded along
with other bottles or they were
found and taken. Fortunately the
committee, fearing this could hap-
pen, made the bottles
"redeemable" for the cash or bonds
instead of filling them with the actu-
al prizes.

were found by Garret Clayton and

"The current incumbent was

No Republican has ever run for
public defender in the Fourth

tained his own law practice since
November 2006. Throughout his
legal career, he has tried more
than 60 criminal trials ranging
from misdemeanors to first-degree
felony cases.
Prior to opening his own law

practice, Shirk spent nearly two
years in the Jacksonville law firm
of Tassone & Eler. He is a 1999
graduate of Florida Coastal School
of Law and subsequently served as
assistant public defender in the
Fourth Judicial Circuit Public
Defender's Office.
Shirk has volunteered at
numerous Special Olympics events
and regularly assisted homeless
people by spending time at the
I.M. Sulzbacher Center, a local
operation that provides meals to
those less fortunate. He hlas also
actively mentored juvenile defen-
dants being charged as adults in
the Duval County Jail.
He graduated from Western
Illinois University in 1997 with a
double major in law enforcement
administration and political sci-
ence. He has been a resident of
Jacksonville since 1997.
In 2004, he married Michelle
Burney, stepdaughter of John

Thwarting tourism
Re: Sadler Road Perpall proposal $530,000 (March
As a taxpaying resident of Fernandina Beach I am
outraged that the city commission is considering wast-
ing tax money to prevent a legal tourist-related busi-
ness from opening on Sadler Road. This represents
nothing more than using tax money to appease special
interests, that of a few neighbors who oppose any
commercial interest in proximity to their sacred back
NIMBY-ism is a self-centered anti-capitalistic curse
that is too often cured at the expense of society in
general. To oppose a new hotel and then use taxpay-
er funds is a double insult to the residents of
Fernandina Beach. The proposal before the city com-
missioners to purchase the Sadler Road property
should be denied for these reasons:
1. The property is an isolated parcel with no sig-
nificant ecological benefit. Look at the Nassau County
GIS maps. St. Johns Water Management and the Corp
of Engineers is ready to permit the project because the
site represents minimal isolated wetlands.
2. The commission is breaching its fiduciary
responsibility pledged to the taxpaying citizens to
manage funds wisely and prudently when the bonds
were voted for.
3. The cost to the city and its residents is far
greater than the purchase price. Consider not just the
purchase price but the millions of dollars lost in sales
taxes, ad valorem taxes that would be paid by this Ob.gj ars, sInstead Win ,Vomg
producing,'this property woitu become a financial
burden on the taxpayers to be insured and managed
forever more.
4. This policy of buying out businesses to avoid
a Burt Harris lawsuit should tell the commission that
they are acting irresponsibly to begin with. This sets
a bad precedent for future development anywhere
else inFernandina Beach.
5. Sadler Road was widened with taxpayer funds
in 2001 to spur tourist-related development near the
beach and create a hotel, motel and restaurant row.
Why else would it be four lanes?
6. The city of-Fernandina Beach already bur-
dens the taxpayers with hundred of acres of property
that it has no intent to develop or put on the tax rolls.
The taxpayers don't need or want any more.
7. Denying a legitimate hotel from development
exacts an indirect cost to every tourist-related business
on the island that would have benefited from the
guests that would have stayed there. Every restaurant,
gift shop and tourist service should be outraged that
the city of Fernandina Beach would spend tax dollars
to thwart tourism development.
Commissioners, please consider the long-term
vision before you make a short-term decision that
future taxpayers may all live to regret and pay for.

Old Town
We hope that the visitors to Old Town who come
to the Plaza to enjoy views of the river and the sunset
did not receive the impression from a recent newspa-
per article that they will no longer be welcome ("Old.
Town residents: Bar traffic in park," April 18). On the
contrary, we are trying to prevent reckless drivers
from further degrading this historic site.
We hope that soon unobtrusive signs requesting no
driving on the Plaza and some short wooden bollards
placed in the right of way will help to safeguard this
unique area. We also hope that a small pleasant park-
ing area will soon be available for visitors who wish to
sit in their cars facing the river views. The open space
of the Plaza is a joy to residents and visitors alike and
should remain so.

Dressing down
Re: "It's not your mother's TV news," April 16.
I'm not sure what point Peggy Stanton was trying
to make in her recent column. Was she bothered by
the physical appearance of newsreaders on cable TV
these days? Was she angered by the relentless ads that
local law firms run on TV? Was her column an assault
on cable -networks? Or simply a flaccid defense of
tired, old media networks?
One can predict that anytime there is mention of
CBS and news, someone will utter the name "Ed
Murrow" with a veneration bordering on sainthood.
While Murrow was a radio pioneer and a staunch and
'dedicated voice of reason and courage in the McCarthy
era, the same defenders conveniently omit the fact
that most of Murrow's airtime on CBS TV was given
over to fluff shows such as "You Are There" (an arti-
ficial history drama) and "Person To Person," where
the fearless Murrow was often reduced to comments
on the decor of the homes of entertainment person-
alities. Finally, Ms. Stanton might be reminded that
Murrow was dumped from CBS when the network
opted instead to run shows like "Green Acres" and
"The Beverly Hillbillies;" so much for CBS' dedication
to journalism.
While it seems that cable does partially base staffing
decisions on appearance, why is this any different
than CBS' experiment with Cupcake Katie Couric,
whom they tried to convert from a morning show TV
host to a "serious" journalist?
Newsworthiness, one would concede, is always an
object.of disagreement. At least with cable TV news one
gets a largely steady diet of news items. Given the long
and steady decline of the ratings of network news
shows, the public seems to be voting on content by the
use of their remotes. The network news shows give us
their take on the news for about 10 minutes and they
are then off to a fluffy feature that, while it might be
entertainment, can't be recognized as news. With old



media news departments fronted by people such as
Dan "What's The Frequency Kenneth" Rather, who
was forced into retirement for making up stories, it is
possible Ms. Stanton, jusLpossible,.thaLxtiesaers have -
had enough of the nanny networks tel ng u what to
think and'would rather, instead, miTke'up their own
Perhaps they yell on Hannity and Colmes (you just
can't resist a shot at Fox, can you Ms. Stanton), but the
program at least showcases two people who repre-
sent different positions on the political spectrum. The
networks, on the other hand, are on record by survey
as being staffed and fronted by people overwhelmingly
representing one political position. Does this seem
healthy to you, Ms. Stanton, or even intellectually
Personally, I'd prefer to have varying points of view
represented, even by yelling, and then making up my
own mind as to what the facts are.
Finally, Ms. Stanton, if you can identify the TV
show featuring the "minimally dressed news anchor,"
please pass it along: I'd like to look into the show in the
flame of investigative journalism, of course.

Obscene trash along roadway
I request permission to express a contemptuous
rage at those few citizens who dispose of their unwant-
ed garbage along our streets and roadways. It may be
a bit inconvenient but the little tote bag from the gro-
cery store secured under the seat of your vehicle for
collection and disposal at a later time would be more
considerate and appropriate.
Hopefully, there are more that care than don't care.
From one who cares.
John W Ramsey

The Good:
Beverly at Sears You're right, she's top-notch,
helpful professional; you can go to Jacksonville to look
for your TVs, refrigerators, stoves, etc., or try at other
local stores to find a sales person who has your best
interest in mind (go ahead and laugh now), or you can
go see Beverly and save time, money and come away
John Stack can speak to anyone and say what-
ever he wants to, he is a true believer in what's right,

and an advocate for Nassau County. How else would
the general public know that the county is getting
ready to waste more money? Keep talking John, and
thank you to (County Commission Chair Marianne)
Marshall for not kowtowing.
Special mention to Ron Sapp, Robert'Weintraub,
Peter Johnson, John Cover, J.L. Brown and AE Rich.
The Bad:
Tuscany Arrgghh!
Crane Island it's all about the money, who
would want to live there anyway, there's enough planes
flying around the island, let alone living under a flight
The Truly Ugly:
County approves more traffic on A1A- come on
County approves new $2 million building ridicu-
lous, thoughtless, poorly planned.
County approves Marsh Lakes strip mall -
absurd, just look at Tuscany, look at the land on the
southeast corner of Amelia Island Parkway and A1A
nice, huh?
County approves shopping center at Blackrock
and A1A enough said.
Thank you, A.E. Rich, for bringing back the word
"dunderhead." I can think of some others to call a few
county commissioners, but this letter wouldn't get
published if I did.

Jacques Clich6s, champing at the bit, returns with
a vengeance but is caught flatfooted beating around the
bush, has the wool pulled over his eyes and gets into
a pickle. Behind the eight ball with his back to the wall,
Jacques risks having his head handed to him on a sil-

his powder dry. But he puts the cart before the horse

their own medicine.
Jacques stays ahead of the curve, puts his foot

Blackrock Baptist welcomes a new minister of music

Blackrock Baptist Church
welcomed new staff member
Matt Gingery April 6 as their
first full-time minister of music.
Matt and his wife Terri have
been married 17 years and have
two sons, Matthew Abram (Abe)
and John Adam (Adam). Their
ages are 15 and 13. They are a
very active family in church,
school and sports and enjoy
doing things together.
This is what Matt had to say
about coming to Blackrock
Baptist Church: "My family and I
are excited about the calling into
full-time ministry and we're look-,
ing forward to joining our new
church family. I worked for UPS
21 years and led worship bi-voca-
tionally for the last 14 years. I
haven't had the desire for full-
time ministry for many years, but
it was not until I surrendered
totally to God's will that every-
thing fell into place and the door
was open.
"'Give thanks to the Lord, call
on His name; make known
among the nations what He has
done. Sing to Him, sing praise to
Him; tell of His wonderful acts.
Glory in His holy name; let the
hearts of those who seek the
Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord
and His strength; seek His face
always.' Psalm 105-104.
"God has heard my heart's
cry and I'm looking forward to
this wonderful opportunity to
serve and seek Him in all that I
do. I'm stepping out of the boat."
We welcome Matt and his
family to our family and are look-
ing forward to what God is going
to do through them.

"Stages of Grief." Many peo-
ple are surprised to find them-
selves angry when going
through a loss. Anger is an
extremely normal response to a
loss. People are often angry at
God, angry at the situation or
sometimes angry at the person
or thing that was lost. But the
real question is what do we do
about the anger? Some, knowing
that it is normal is enough. For
others, it is important to find a
healthy way to express it and let

it get out without harming them-
selves or others. Keeping it bot-
tled up inside allows it to build
up pressure, which will eventual-
ly explode. Telling your story,
talking to a trusted friend about
what makes you angry, one that
will not judge you or hold things
against you is ideal. First Peter
4:8 tells us that love covers a
multitude of sins. Having some-
one who can listen and let you
vent in a healthy way will help
you get through this stage of
grief d little quicker.
If you have additional ques-
tions, or need grief counseling

"Pastor's Ponderings" by
Senior Pastor of First Baptist
Church, the Rev. Jeff Overton:
"Will you not revive us again,
that your people may rejoice in
you? Show us your unfailing love,
0 Lord, and grant us your salva-
tion. Psalm 85:6
"There is great need for
revival in our land! It is almost look around and
see how far we have drifted from
the Lord. We see the violence-
around us. We see the worship of
materialism and fame. It seems
as if we have deserted our faith
for the things of this world. This
is not something new. This is
something we read about with
the children of Israel in the Old
Testament and the church in the
New Testament. In each of these
situations there is always a rem-
nant of people who long to return
to God and to honor Him with
their lives. God will take that
remnant and do a miraculous
work in them and through them
to bring glory to His name and
revival to His people. I feel we
need to be that remnant today.
"We need to pour our hearts
out in prayer to our Heavenly
Father in repentance and surren-
der. We need to pray as the-
psalmist did in the prayer in the
text at the top of the page.

Seniors Celebration Day is
Saturday. For the next six weeks,
we at Amelia Baptist Church will
be participating in a journey to
understand God's love and
demonstrate God's love in such a
way that the community will glo-
rify God and receive His Love.
On Saturday, we are going to
demonstrate God's love in two
ways. We are partnering with the
Nassau County Council on Aging
for a "repair and support" activity
where we will go out in work
teams to selected local seniors'
residences to address some of
their home fix-up needs. The sec-
ond event will be a dinner at the
church, where we will dine and
fellowship with about 50 special
seniors from our community.
From this meeting, we hope
to be able to identify some of
their personal needs and come
alongside them for an ongoing
support relationship. The empha-
sis for both of these events is to
actually bring the love of Christ
to others through our actions
and to increase our Christian vis-
ibility in the community so that
they will glorify our Father in
Heaven! Pray and ask the Father
what He desires you to do
A trip to the ballgame! During
the third weekend in May, our
men's ensemble will sing the
National Anthem at a Suns' base-
ball game. The game will be
played at the Baseball Grounds
of Jacksonville. Contact Russ
Hughes at 491-1734.
A group of senior adults from

Minister of Music, the Rev.
Mike Reed, bribed a group of
men at First Baptist to sing a spe-

service again recently. They only
get to have a short practice
before singing. They have

received great applause both
times. They also get to leave the

April 6-8 was revival time at
First Baptist Church, downtown
Fernandina Beach, with Jamey
Ragle and his own style of humor
and messages that stirred the

your parents, Suzanne and Jack
Bass, are very proud of you all! A
number of other relatives also.
May the Lord keep on bless-

We are all asked to pray for
Leslie and Brenda Shaw. He has
been given six months to live,
according to his doctors, but we
know that life and death are in
the hands off God. Leslie and
Brenda are great spiritual giants
in my eyes and for the kingdom
of God. For over 30 years, they
gave their lives to serve Christ in
Honduras. Blessings to you all

ties, someone else always ends up get-

Sam.24:10-15, 70,000 souls died because
of his need to feel important by number-
ing the people.
I don't know about you, but I see this
same kind of thing happening today. Our
culture tells us that in order to be valued
we have to do something that will
impress others. I mean, think about it.
Who wants to associate themselves with
someone or something that on the out-
side doesn't seem that successful?
Strangely enough, I've found that God
usually thinks just the opposite. As a mat-
ter of fact, the very things that impress
men are often the very things that turn
God away. Like King David, though there
was nothing wrong with knowing how

many people were in his kingdom, his
motive for knowing wasn't right. You see,
at that point in his life, it wasn't about
God's kingdom anymore but about his

Oh yeah, you bet, I got in a lot of trouble.
As I close out this childhood memory,
it's my prayer that God would grant each
one of us the success of being in the cen-
ter of His will, even if that doesn't
impress other people.

new equipment and landscaping. The total cost
of the renovations was nearly $50,000.

through play and having tangible experiences
are necessary for a child's development," said
Connie Stophel, CEO of Episcopal Children's
Services, in a press release.

Firefighters visit academy
Nassau County Fire Rescue Station 70-C was pleased to
enlighten nearly 150 students at Faith Christian Academy in
Fernandina Beach at their annual Career Day on April 18.
The students from kindergarten to grade eight were recep-
tive to presentations from Lt. Matt Graves, Eng. John Watson,
Eng. Brian Sloan, and firefighter Jeff Castle.,
The students also toured the apparatus and learned how all
the equipment on the fire engine and onboard the rescue is
used to save lives and protect property. The event was con-
ducted in an effort to promote the future workforce of fire and
emergency medical services.
Right, Sloan teaches children not to be scared in the rescue
vehicle. Above left, children and staff check out the fire
engine. Above right, students pose with Sparky the Fire Dog.
"We enjoy going into the schools and teaching children
about a career in the fire service," said Deputy Chief Roger
West. "This is exciting for us to explain to the children how we
perform when we respond to emergencies."
Sparky the Fire Dog added to the. entertainment. Sparky
loves children and wants them to remember some important
safety tips:
If you see smoke or fire in the home, stay low and crawl
to the closest exit to escape.
Never go back into the house even if your pet is still
If your clothes catch fire, Stop, Drop, and Roll, until the
flames are out.

Few doctors

make virtual

house calls
I like to think I am elec-
tronically connected
when it comes to my
profession. Baptist
Medical Center Nassau is a
completely paperless hospital
and I can review a patient's
record or look at their X-rays
from anywhere in the world
over the Internet. My office
is also fully electronic, with
digital X-ray and large com-
puter monitors to view the
"films." Our charts are also
electronic documents.
However, despite all of my
electric connectivity, I may
still be behind in one facet of
communication. I do not cor-
respond with my patients by
Honestly, it is not some-
thing that I have really ever
'given much thought to. I am
constantly on the go and, if I
had the responsibility of
answering patient's e-mails, I
believe that it would add
hours upon hours to my
work week.
Seventy-six percent
ofpatients noted
that they would
like e-mail access
to their doctors.
Also, I am sure there are
some legal ramifications of
these doctor-patient e-mail
communications. Any e-mail
I sent would have to be
entered into their medical
record. Also, I worry that an
"ignored" e-mail could be
seen as not following
through with completion of
my responsibilities to my
For example, if a patient
sent me an "urgent" message
about their medical condition
and I didn't get around to
answering it until a day or
two later, what legal liability
might I face?
I am sure it would make it
easier for patients to just
send in their questions and
have them answered. It
might even keep them from
coming in to see me.
However, I fear that the time
involved to type out respons-
es to patient's e-mail ques-
tions would be more than I
would be willing to take on.
I am not alone. An
MSNBC report noted that
less than a third of doctors
communicate with patients
by e-mail. The physician sur-
vey cited such reasons as
"too much time involved"
and "not able to bill for that
Unlike an attorney who
does bill specifically for time
involvement with a client, a
physician could spend a half
an hour answering a patient's
questions, but he would not
be allowed to turn that
"charge" into a patient's
insurance company.
This may be changing
too. Two insurance compa-
nies are piloting programs
that would allow physicians
to bill for "virtual house
calls." This would include
reviewing of an electronic
chart, looking at digital
X-rays and answering patient
The MSNBC report also
noted that 76 percent of
patients noted that they
would like e-mail access to
their doctors. So, it is some-
thing to think about. An argu-
ment could be made that
being connected with my
patients could make things
easier for all. Such simple
things like a request for a
prescription refill or to
reschedule an appointment
would be something to con-
sider in the future.

Pirates, Hornets

ousted in semis
It could have been an all-Nassau County matchup
in the district championship Thursday, but neither the
Pirates or Hornets made it past the semifinal.
Yulee was dimed by Bolles in the first semifinal
Tuesday at Fernandina Beach High School. Bolles
was stingy, giving up just one hit
"They just had an all-around better team than we
did," said Will Minor, Yulee High School head base-
ball coach. "Bolles scored eight runs in the first two
innings and they just shut our bats down."
The Pirates werd edged 5-4 by the top seed,
Episcopal, in the other semifinal Tuesday.
The Pirates scored first, netting a pair of runs in
the top of the fourth inning. Jarrod Carlton singled and
Jeff Day walked. Trent Luman singled and advanced
to second on the throw, allowing two runs to score.
Episcopal answered, knotting the score at 2-2 in the
bottom of the fifth inning.
The Pirates were back in top in the top of the
sixth inning, chalking up a pair of runs on as many
hits. Carlton was hit by a pitch and took second on a
wild pitch. Jeff Day doubled in Carlton. Luman singled
to center to knock in the other run.
Fernandina led 4-2 going into the bottom of the sev-
enth inning. Episcopal scored three runs on five hits
and left two runners on base. The Eagles won 5-4 and
advanced to the District 4-3A championship against
Justin Day (5-1) took his first loss of the season on
the mound. He gave up 11 hits and five runs, walked
two and struck out eight.
The Pirates collected six hits. Luman had a pair
and Carlton, Jeff Day, Justin Day and Bud Davis had
one apiece.
While Yulee topped West Nassau in the first round
of district play Monday, Fernandina (seeded fourth)
beat No. 5 seed Trinity Christian 7-3.
The Pirates trailed 3-1 going into the bottom of the
third inning, when they managed six runs on six
hits, all they would need for the win. Justin Crews,
Carlton, Luman, Robert Martin, Davis and Tyler
Womble all singled in the inning. Luman's hit knocked
in two runs.
In all, the Pirates had 12 hits. Luman ended the
night with three. Justin Day and Davis had two each.
Carlton (6-3) got the win on the mound. He gave
up nine hits and three hits, one earned, walked five
and struck out 11.
The Pirates went 16-11 this season.
The Hornets, who were seeded sixth and knocked
off No. 3 seed West Nassau in the first round of dis-
trict play, also ended with a 16-11 record.
"Overall, our season was a good one," Minor said.
"We beat West Nassau to advance to the district semi-
finals and we beat many other quality bigger schools,
such as Fleming Island, Orange Park, Mandarin,
First Coast, Gainesville and Paxon. We were also
able to split with Fernandina Beach.
"Many times the overall record is what everyone
looks at, but this season was a success for other rea-
sons too. The field and facilities are starting to look
better and the interest from the community has been
"Every year is just part of the process of building.

we are always trying to move forward. As long as we
have that approach, the program is going to be suc-

Flounder catches

improving offshore

"" louder catches are
| improving at offshore
F > live bottoms where floun-
..K, der weighing to five
pounds are ganging up on hard
bottoms and eating snapper and
grouper baits. Once you have
landed that first offshore floun-
der, expect to catch more
because they are schooling dur-
ing this time of the year.
Fishermen should also do
well in tidal rivers and bays this
weekend for flounder weighing
to eight pounds. Larger flounder
are often caught during the fall
fishing season. Respectable
inshore bait for flounder include
finger mullet, bullhead minnows
and cut strips of bait. All of these
baits should be weighted and
fished slowly along the bottom.
Look for backcountry floun-
der to hold at creek mouths that
drain wide expanses of the
marsh, boat docks and rock jet-
ties. Look for the best flounder
bite to come during high tide and
right down to low water.
Flounder must measure at
least 12 inches long and fisher-
men are allowed to keep 10 per
day, per angler.
Offshore fishing is still excel-
lent for red snapper at FA and
Haddocks Hideaway. The Elton
Bottom should be a good bet for
king mackerel and huge red
snapper weighing over the 10-
pound mark. Cobia have been
running south of the St. Marys
inlet, so any day now expect to
spot an inquisitive visitor at boat
side. One of the better cobia
lures is a four-ounce yellow
haired jig, tipped with fresh

Look for good catches of sea
trout, whiting, bluefish, flounder,
puppy drum and.redfish to come
from the surf. Fish dead on the
bottom with fresh shrimp.
Seasoned surf fishermen will
often purchase live shrimp and
allow them to die in their'cooler.
This is as fresh as shrimp get
and they are very deadly baits
for a wide variety of saltwater

Some, like Nessie, the : -':" .--

chambers of commerce to attract tourism. Some
turn out to be real, like the multi-armed sea mon-

the Gestapo, general geography, the German invasion
of Paris, the Spanish Civil War, etc. Is it just me, or are
there fewer current movies that expect the viewer to
know classical literature, history and the informa-
tion that makes up cultural literacy? I have watched
"Casablanca" with people in their late teens and 20s
and have had to explain every other scene to them ("If
he gets a word in edgewise, it'll be a major Italian vic-
tory!"). Weltha Wood, Tulsa, Okla.
A Everyone would have known that stuff at the
-.time, but you're right that a lot of recent
movies exist in a vacuum of literacy of any kind.
And memories fade. See the next letter.

Q I think "No Country for Old Men" is an
.incredible film. However, there are three
things that bother me from an anachronistic stand-
point. The film is most clearly set in 1980, as evi-
denced by the 1958 quarter that "traveled 22 years"
as well as the date on Carla Jean's mother's tomb-'
stone. The first potentially out-of-date reference

occurs in the gas station when the attendant
charges Anton 69 cents for a little bag of nuts
(pricey for 1980, no?).
The second is when Carla Jean mentions work-
ing for Wal-Mart. Granted there were Wal-Mart
stores in Texas in 1980, but doubtful in a small
town in West Texas. The last is Carson Wells' refer-
ence to an "ATM" to pay off Chigurh. ATM's were
around then for sure, but were not nearly as popu-
lar as today nor were a part of the lexicon of the
late '70s and early '80s.
Do apparent flaws such as this take away from a
film's standing, in your opinion? Can a film expert
such as yourself ignore little issues like that when
contemplating a film's quality? If so, how? Chris
Ortman, Cleveland

Q Others have observed that binoculars in
movies provide a view in the shape of two
slightly overlapping circles that fill the screen bet-
ter than the view through real-life binoculars,
which is a single, circular three-dimensional view.
In "No Country for Old Men." Llewelyn Moss has
binoculars that provide a full-frame rectangular
view. In all cases, the view through binoculars in
movies is rock steady, even though in real life, it is
impossible to hold binoculars to get such a steady
view. And the more the magnifying power of the
binoculars, the shakier the image. Roy Maltby,
Calgary, Alberta, Canada

. too busy looking. Sometimes you have to go

Q Someone asked you if it was difficult to
review bad movies, and your reply was
that it was most difficult to review spoof movies (I
believe it was in your "Scary Movie" review). I
wanted your take on movies that are bad but are
supposed to be. Is it OK to love "Sorority House
Massacre 2." "Night of the Lepus" and "Basket
Case"? Do these types of movies rake your-
nerves, or do you appreciate them as well because,
hey, as a fan of film in general; it's cool that
they were made at all? Luke Meighan,
Lexington, Ky.
A .Having not seen any of them, I reply that
. it all depends on whether.they are made
with style, wit and half a clue about what they want
to do.

Q 1I received one of those new flat-panel
.widescreen TVs. There is an easily accessible
control that lets me switch it from widescreen to
4:3 easily, and even an "automatic" setting that does
a pretty good job of seeing what the correct format
is supposed to be (when I'm looking at the signal
coming in from cable, for example). But when I'm
watching DVDs, the high-definition connection
always assumes that it's widescreen and will not let
you change it to 4:3. So slip in a disc of, say, Astaire
and Rogers in "Swing Time." and you will see all
the image with nothing cut off either the top or the
bottom, but Fred and Ginger will be lots shorter
and fatter than they ever were. This is, of course,
much more noticeable with Fred. Hank Graham,

its wings. Raymond Ogilvie, Pottstown, Pa.

The designated character rule
In any movie where two characters arrange a
meeting at a bar to exchange valuable information
or materials, the person who arrives second will
always order a beer. However, once the beer is set
down, they won't touch it until they finish explain-
ing the information or giving the person the materi-
als, at which time they will stand up, take one small
sip, throw money down, and say one final word of
advice before departing. The person left at the bar
will usually stare off into space for a second then
say to the bartender, "Give me another one,
Johnny" before we cut to the next scene. Chris

length (to appeal to American
tastes), ripe fine tannins and inte-
grated balance of fruit weight,
alcohol, acid and tannins. The
wines are styled so that they can
be consumed immediately and
also to be able to mature.
Njal (Sparky) Marquis, an
award winning scientific photog-
rapher, volunteered to help his
parents with their Tasmanian
vineyard and winery. He attended
the Australian wine school at
Roseworthy, where he won every
award, prize and trophy. Sparky
later returned to Roseworthy as a
lecturer, where he met and mar-
ried Sarah Watts. Together they

went to work with Sarah's parents
to develop the Fox Creek label,
which took the top shiraz award
at the McLaren Vale Wine Show
in the wine's first year.
In 1998, the Longbottom fami-
ly of Padthaway, South Australia,
asked them to make their wine,
Henry's Drive and Parson's Flat,
which were so phenomenal the
couple were named Australian
Winemakers of the Year in 2000.
Dan Philips of The Grateful
Palate, which imports Australian
wines into the U.S., suggested
that they go into partnership and
bottle the best of the "additional"
wines Sarah and Sparky were
making for import into the U.S.
under a label using their com-

bined names.
To illustrate their Australian-
U.S. partnership and the market-
ing plan of producing a wine for
the American palate, the new
Marquis Philips winery created
the "Roogle" label.
Roogle Red is a blend of 80
percent shiraz, 20 percent caber-
net sauvignon. It is a well struc-
tured and balanced wine, display-
ing opulent, velvety tannins with
the fruit-forward style preferred
by many Americans.
The shiraz provides plush
ripeness while the cabernet
mutes the nose but adds impres-
sive taste, with notes of black
fruit, cassis and licorice. Its struc-
ture is more developed than

other blends from the same win-
ery that I've tasted. It can be a lit-
tle harsh at first but mellows nice-
ly as it breathes and pairs well
with food.
The second Marquis Philips
wine that I tasted is Sarah's
Blend, which adds merlot to the
shiraz and cabernet mixture. It is
not as bold as Roogle Red. If you
like a milder wine, then you will
prefer Sarah's Blend.
The mythic half 'roo and half
eagle may be "cute" or "odd" but
it's not the label that counts; it's
what is inside the bottle that is
most important.

FRIDAY, APRil 25, 2008 LEISURE News-Leader

Multiple-award winning
ceramic artist Ralph Rankin
adds to the gala atmosphere
of the Shrimp Festival juried
art show with his exquisite
colors in his very contempo-
rary pieces. Rankin is always
trying to invent something
new in ceramic techniques
and perhaps this is why col-
lectors prize his pieces.

ART Continued from 1B
N.C., and Venice, Fla., has provid-
ed Erickson with a broad range of
subjects to paint. Inspired by
nature, she "captures moments in
time and places them on canvas."
Her work is collected throughout
the U.S. and Europe. Among her
numerous awards, Erickson was
juried into the Paint America's
Mini Top 50, which is touring the
country throughout 2008. Erick-
son also thinks the Shrimp Fest-
ival is a "lot of fun because of the
great people."
"The gala atmosphere is what
makes this show so much fun."
according to Ralph Rankin. Multi-
ple-award winning ceramic artist,
Rankin adds to the gala atmos-
phere with his exquisite colors in
his very contemporary pieces. He
uses the surfaces of the clay ves-
sels he produces as a canvas.
"They are abstract landscapes."
Rankin is always trying to invent
something new in ceramic tech-
niques and perhaps this is why
collectors prize his pieces.
Another artist who is always
looking for a new way is nationally
known artist and author Lin
Seslar. She says, "The challenge
of capturing light and color is
never ending." She shares her
experience of the search in her
book, Painting in Sharp Focus.
Her award-winning oil paintings
are both realistic and romantic
views of things that catch her eye.
Subjects rangefraom arhitectura ,,,
to beach scefesuSeslaovldes Mjj1.'cni
showing at the Shrimp Festival
because of the "laid back" atmos-
phere and the "fun crowd."
The fun crowd at the Shrimp
Festival is also loved by artist and
author Susanna Spann. She
describes the show as "loud and
colorful" and notes that she has
enjoyed it for the past 10 years.
Spann's water color glazing
method of layering as many as 20
layers of transparent paint provide
intensity and texture that help her
weave a story from collected
objects and plants. Many of her
works are known for the appear-
ance of crystal or glass in the
composition. Spann's paintings
have won hundreds of awards and
are included in many corporate
. These artists, along with hun-
dreds more award-winning artists,
will be happy to meet you at this
year's Shrimp Festival May 24.
Don't miss their amazing and
beautiful works, which will be dis-
played along the streets of down-
town Fernandina Beach on May 3
and 4 of the festival.
Gary Rubin is a member of the
Island Art Association, which each
year organizes the Isle of Eight
Flags Shrimp Festival Fine Arts &
Crafts Show. For more information
