The fate of the city marina's boat
ramp was discussed but not decided at
a city commission workshop Tuesday.
The Waterfronts Florida Partner-
ship Committee, which includes many
property owners on the Amelia River,
and the city Parks & Recreation
Advisory Committee, which has
devised a plan for a riverfront park,
asked the commission to consider mov-
ing the boat ramp.

News-Leader
Nassau County Commission candi-
date Grady Howard Wright has with-
drawn from the race and endorsed one
of his opponents.
Wright, who was running for the
District 3 commission seat represent-
ing Yulee, announced his withdrawal
Tuesday at a meet-and-greet event held
by candidate Wynn Fendig at Amelia
Island Plantation. Wright gave the for-
mer county Planning and Zoning Board
Member his
endorsement at the
event.
for Also running
for the seat is Stacy
Johnson. The seat
has been vacant
since the resigna-
tion of Commis-
._ sioner Tom Branan
Johnson earlier this month
after chronic illness
and a May 29 car
accident. Branan had filed for reelec-
tion, but withdrew in the wake of the
accident.
"At this point in time, I just thought
it was better to make it a two-person
race," Wright said Wednesday. 'That
way Mr. Fendig has a better chance of
winning. It was my intention to do
everything.I could for the county, and
I think this will make it easier for .the
county to make a decision.
"It was a tough decision, I will tell
you that," Wright added. "It was not a
decision that was taken lightly; there
was a lot of agonizing and a lot of sleep-

Beachgoers are nourished by sun and sand at Fernandina Beach while heavy equipment continues a
major beach "renourishment" project nearby. Construction has now reached to south of Main
Beach, closing off much of the public beach. The project will continue to spread 1.7 million cubic
yards of sand piped from offshore on four miles of beach from Fort Clinch State Park to south of
Sadler Road. The $14 million construction project was funded jointly by the federal, state, city and
county governments.


State: Still no money to widen A1A


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
A Florida Department of
Transportation representative has told
Nassau County Commissioners that
funds do not exist for increasing the
road's capacity.
"The challenge is that we must
preserve our existing system and keep
it a safe system before we can get
around to adding more lanes," said


James Bennett, a transportation devel-
opment engineer for FDOT "... We
continue to try to implement a project
there, but at $200 million, we're strug-
gling just like the county to add that
capacity."
Bennett said FDOTs current plan,
covering projects from 2008-13, focus-
es more on keeping A1A drivable than
adding lanes; for instance, FDOT is
slated to resurface the road from the
Duval County line to south of Callahan.


"We do not have the funds to widen it
and increase capacity, but we do have
to maintain what's there, so we have a
resurfacing project," he said.
Bennett also asked the county July
16 to approve a detour when FDOT
replaces the Lessie Road bridge over
Little St Marys River in 2011. Using a
detour instead of constructing a tem-
porary bridge would decrease work
time from one year to nine months
and save an estimated $650,000, he


said.
Commissioner Barry Holloway
asked if Bennett could guarantee the
money saved would be funneled into
other Nassau County road projects.
Bennett said he could not, but reiter-
ated that saving money was a priority
for FDOT in a tight budget year.
Commissioner Mike Boyle sup-
ported the use of a detour because of

Non-profit


agencies

at Peck

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
decided Tuesday to go forward with
remodeling part of the Peck Commu-
nity Center to accommodate the city
finance department, but they will try to
keep two non-profit agencies in the
building through "creative allocation."
According to cost estimates by
Dixon Associates of St. Augustine, con-
tractor for the project, it will cost
$25,000 to remodel two office spaces
for the finance department. Two non-
profit agencies, Communities in
Schools and Big Brothers/Big Sisters,
will be relocated elsewhere in the build-
ing if possible.
If they stay in the building, they will
continue to pay about a quarter of the
rent they would pay for offices not sub-
sidized by the city.
The city recently sent letters to
those two organizations, plus Habitat
for Humanity, saying the Peck Center
would no longer be available to them.
Habitat for Humanity, which does not
need ongoing office space, will relo-
cate outside the Peck Center.
Originally, the city was planning a

'Letter of


concern


to Czymbor

MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commissioner
Ron Sapp, whose vote has been vital in
preserving City Manager Michael
Czymbor's job, has sent a sharply crit-
ical letter to the city manager.
"In my opinion, one of the more
serious consequences of your
actions/decision-making is that public
confidence in city government, overall,
has been diminished," Sapp wrote July
9. "The citizens of Fernandina Beach
must know that the administration of
this city is efficient, capable and com-
petent when dealing with the kinds of
situations and scenarios outlined
above. I believe that your decision-
making and actions have rendered that
essential knowledge no longer cer-
tain."
The elected commission hires, fires
and supervises city managers, who
have responsibility for the day-to-day
operations at City Hall. Czymbor, city
manager since April 2006, has been
reappointed on 3-2 votes, with Sapp in
the majority. The two commissioners
who opposed Czymbor, former mayor
Bill Leeper and commissioner Joe
Gerrity, are no longer on the board.
There does not seem to be signifi-
cant disaffection with Czymbor on the
part of his bosses, including Mayor
Bruce Malcolm and Vice Mayor Ken
Walker, who voted with Sapp to reap-
point him, and new commissioners
Eric Childers and Susan Steger. But

Man with handgun


arrested near stores


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

A Duval County man
armed with a handgun was
arrested Thursday afternoon
in a wooded area on 14th
Street near the Fernandina
Beach Wal-Mart store park-
ing lot.
The man, whose name has
not yet been released by
police, tried to flee the area
on foot when he realized he
was dealing with police offi-
cers in an undercover drug
operation, city Police Chief
Jim Hurley said.
Hurley said the plan,
organized in conjunction with
federal Drug Enforcement
Agency agents, was to meet
with the man under the guise
of selling him five kilos of
cocaine for $100,000.


After the man fled police
and DEA agents pulled their
weapons and quickly found
him. Police Capt. David
Bishop said the incident hap-
pened about 1:30 p.m.
"We had the area sur-
rounded," said Bishop, who
added that the man did not
threaten police with his gun.
"He dropped the gun when-
ever he was ordered to ...
thank goodness."
"He was never out of our
grasp," Bishop said.
Instead of having the full
$100,000 in cash, the suspect
had "some of the money ...
packed looking like, of course,
real money, and the rest
stuffed full of bags and news-
papers," he said.
No one was injured in the
sting.

instead of moving it, the city
would have to repay about
$100,000 to the Florida Recre-
ation Development Assistance
Program, which administered
the grant to build the boat
ramp in the 1990s.
According to City Manager
Michael Czymbor, cost esti-
mates to relocate the ramp are
between $500,000 and
$600,000. Czymbor also said
conceptual plans for the water-
front park include a place for
the boat ramp at the south end.
Dave Lott of the water-
fronts committee said the
ramp should be moved
because ifs located at the low-
est spot in terms of water
depth. The ramp also inter-
feres with the flow of water in
the marina, he said, and is a
safety hazard. The city could
close it but in essence, he said,
it's the only free public ramp'in

Sapp's criticisms do signal a
changed atmosphere.
"As one of your five super-
visors, I feel compelled to write
this letter of concern regard-
ing recent actions and deci-
sions taken by yourself .... ,"
Sapp wrote, citing three specif-
ically.
"Your interpretation of
the term clause in the contract
with Stateline, and correspon-
ding actions."
Sapp believes the commis-
sion should have had an oppor-
tunity to consider whether to
seek bids for a new garbage-
hauling contract after a five-
year contract expired. But
Czymbor "decided that staff
would consider the proposal,
make the response and nego-
tiate a proposed new contract.
The commission would be
brought into the process only
at the very end, to formally
approve the contract negotiat-
ed by yourself and staff."
That "undermines the leg-
islative authority of the com-
mission mandated by the char-
ter," Sapp wrote.
The new contract, which
went into effect July 1,
increased monthly rates for
most residential customers by
20 percent.
"The process, managed
by yourself, by which the
Hatch Act was applied to Fire
Chief Danny Leeper."
Sapp told Czymbor "the
process by which the act was
applied was abysmal. Your
handling of the situation, in
my opinion, left the city open
to repeated criticisms, and
questions regarding perceived
ulterior motives and plans."


a problem because it obstructs
the boardwalk.
A previous city marina
design called lfor demolishing
Atlantic Seafood and replacing
it with a much larger building
further away from the board-
walk. That design was even-
tually replaced by a reduced
plan to enlarge the boathouse
and keep the Atlantic Seafood
building where it is.
Resident Lynn Williams
cited a report from Marine
Management Systems that
said the boat ramp added no
value to the marina. He said
the city should move it south,
or close it and have a plan to
rebuild it later. He also said
there was no point in Atlantic
Seafood being there without
the boat ramp "because that's
where the customers are."
Czymbor said the city could
increase its property tax rate to
pay for moving the boat ramp,
or apply for more grants to
cover at least some expenses,
if the commission decides to
relocate it.

Czymbor met with Nassau
County Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham, who told him
the federal Hatch Act might
prevent Leeper from simulta-
neously serving as fire chief
and seeking election to the
county commission. Leeper'is
running against Higginbotham
in the November election.
Czymbor asked City
Attorney Tammi Bach to
request a ruling from the U.S.
Office of Special Counsel,
which ultimately found the
Hatch Act did apply to Leeper,
who then retired July 7. The
city manager'maintained he
did so to keep the city out of
legal jeopardy, but critics sug-
gested he acted to rid himself
of a fire chief with whom he
has had conflict for more than
two years.
'The obvious lack of plan-
ning regarding the com-
mahd/supervisory vacuum
created by the resignations of
Fire Chief Leeper and Deputy
Fire Chief (Jeffrey) Bunch."
Bunch retired July 2 and
Leeper on July 7, both of which
had been anticipated, but "no
plan is in place to fill the com-
mand/supervisor vacuum cre-
ated by that actual and antici-
pated resignation," Sapp
alleged. He called the "lack of
planning ... disturbing."
He did not mention that

PECK Continued from 1AA
remodel and addition to the util-
ity/finance building on Lime
Street, which would have cost
nearly $300,000. Another
design to just remodel the
building would have cost
almost $143,000.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor said the library or
reception room at the Peck
Center were possible areas to
remodel for the non-profit
offices. He also assured com-
missioners that the city and
Dixon Associates would work
with the non-profits to come up
with a "satisfactory solution."
Commissioner Susan Steger
said she did not want the sur-
rounding neighborhood to lose
services, and expressed con-
cern that other non-profits could
leave the Peck Center. The
Amelia Arts Academy, she said,
has an especially positive impact
on the neighborhood, with its
many night activities.
Commissioner Ron Sapp
said he was "really happy" the
city was going to try and find
space for the two non-profits.


From a pure business stand-
point, he said, it would not prof-
it the city to keep those servic-
es, but finding them office space
was "the right thing to do."
Czymbor said the idea to use
the Peck Center for offices was
originally brought up by Mike
Rooney, head of the city's
Information Technology
Department. The IT depart-
ment also apparently needs
more office space, but that issue
was not addressed at the work
session.

Yulee bank robberies


might be related


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
No arrests have been
made, but Nassau County
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said
detectives believe two recent
Yulee bank robberies are relat-
ed.
Community- First Bank,
463845 SR 200, was robbed by
two suspects at 2:24 p.m. July
7, and on Saturday Southeas-
tern Bank at 463128 SR 200
was robbed by at least one sus-
pect about 11 a.m.
Both banks were robbed in
what Seagraves called
"takeover style," Where ban-
dits enter the building armed
and announce their intent to
rob the bank.
"At this point they seem to
be similar in the method of the
robbery, but we haven't been
able to do anything factual to
prove that they are related,"
Seagraves said. "... (The inci-
dents) are the same in the way
they were committed and by
the vehicle used ... so we feel
at this point that they're pos-
sibly related."
A late 1990's Jeep Chero-
kee was the getaway vehicle in
both incidents. The Jeeps were
different vehicles; the one
used in the July 7 robbery was
found abandoned shortly after
the robbery. The Jeep in the
second robbery was also
found the same day, parked at
a liquor store near the bank,

with the money inside.
Seagraves said investiga-
tors have confirmed that the
money was' the total amount
taken from Southeastern
Bank.
The money from the first
robbery has not been recov-
ered.
One difference between
the two incidents is that two
men were involved in the Com-
munity First Bank robbery,
while police know of only one
man involved in Saturday's
robbery of Southeastern Pank.
Seagraves said it's possible
a second suspect was in the
vehicle, but witnesses report-
ed seeing only one man
throughout the incident.
Detectives have released
surveillance video of the first
robbery. Seagraves said inves-
tigators are reviewing surveil-
lance video taken of the sec-
ond and working on
"enhancing the quality" for
possible release to the media.
The two suspects in the
July 7 robbery were masked
and armed with handguns; the
suspect Saturday also had his
- face covered and police believe
he was also armed. Witnesses
have said the suspects are
white. -
Asked if arrests are immi,
nent, Seagraves said no, but
detectives are following sev-
eral leads.
"I don't know if we're that
close, but we're working on
different things ... and we're
looking at other agencies to
see if anyone else has been
robbed outside our jurisdic-
tion," Seagraves said. "We're
looking at some other cases
and talking to witnesses."
Seagraves said the suspects
in both robberies did not ver-
bally threaten the bank tellers
other than ordering them not
to give them the "dye pack," a
device used to taint stolen
money by exploding and cov-
ering the money and anything
else nearby with permanent
paint.
Anyone with information is
asked to contact the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office at 225-
5174 or First Coast Crime
Stoppers at 1-866-845-8477.

SHIANNON MALCOM
News Leader
A Fernandina Beach man
and a Jacksonville man have
been arrested on charges of
stealing equipment from sev-
eral Fernandina Beach busi-
nesses including Rayonier
Corp., Florida Public Utilities
and Five Star Lube.
Timothy Aaron McEldow-
ney, 20, of Jacksonville and
Gregory Travis Shields, 26, of
Forrest Parke Drive in
Fernandina Beach face charges
of seven counts of burglary,
seven counts of grand theft and
additional charges of dealing in
stolen property.


McEldowney Shields


McEldowney and Shields
are also facing additional
charges from the Fernandina
Beach Police Department.
According to Nassau County
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves,
investigators had been looking
into "several business burgla-


ries" and the sheriff's office was
working with the Fernandina
Beach Police Department.
Detectives received infor-
mation leading them to the sus-
pects, who reportedly were
found hiding in a home at 795
Geiger Road in Fernandina
Beach on July 18.
Seagraves said two stolen
computers were found at the
home including stainless steel
pipe and hardware valued at
$545 and a battery analyzer val-
ued at $1,000.
Detectives are also investi-
gating the recent burglary of
the Florida Public Utilities office
on South Eighth Street.
"One of the suspects is coop-


crating with the investigation
and has confessed to being
responsible for the ... FPU bur-
glary and six other commercial
burglaries that have occurred in
the past month along the South
Eighth Street corridor in unin-
corporated Nassau County,"
said city Police Chief Jim
Hurley in a statement. "A
search of the residence and
area around the home resulted
in the recovery of more than
$10,000 (worth of) stolen prop-
erty from FPU."
Shields is being held at the
Nassau County Jail on $156,536
bond and McEldowney on
$120,030 bond.

9 accused drug dealers face federal charges


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Nine suspects arrested in a'
major drug bust in May have
been indicted by a federal grand
jury, which means charges filed
against them by the local State
Attorney's Office will be
dropped.
Fernandina Beach Police
and the U.S. Drug Enforcement
Agency worked together to
orchestrate "Operation
Fishnet," an undercover opera-
tion that targeted alleged
cocaine dealers both on Amelia
Island and in Yulee. Police say
the ringleaders were an 84-year-
old man and his two sons.


Joseph "Duck" Simmons, 84,
of Fernandina Beach has not
been federally indicted but his
sons, Christopher T. Brown, 36,
and Benjamin "Boy Baby"
Simmons, 38, are among the
nine who face federal charges.
Fernandina Beach Police
Chief Jim Hurley said federal
indictments could lead to
lengthier sentences for the nine
suspects if they are convicted.
"This is our best opportuni-
ty to take this group off the
streets for a long, long time," he
said.
He added that the decision
to prosecute a defendant in fed-
eral court instead of state court
typically indicates the belief that


a suspect is a major dealer.
"I think it tends to separate
out the primary dealers from
the fringe players and the
users," he said.
Other suspects indicted in
federal court in connection with
the May arrests are Carlos
Bartley, 32, Samuel Perkins, 36,
Derrek Owens, 25, Anthony
James, 47, Ronald Morris, 45,
Leighton Morris, 41, and
Theresa Washington, 47, all of
Fernandina Beach. Each of the
nine defendants is.facing fed-
eral charges related to the sale
of cocaine.
The undercover operation,
which led to the arrest of at
least 28 suspects, lasted 18


months and culminated in May
when two Fernandina Beach
homes were raided by local
police and DEA agents.
Police said at the time they
expected the bust to at least
temporarily slow the sale and,
as a result, use of cocaine in
and around Fernandina Beach.

Man accused of rape

gets 5 years in prison


SI IANNON MALCOM
News Leader
A Yulee man has been sen-
tenced to five years in prison
after he pleaded guilty to
aggravated assault, a lesser
offense than his original
charge of sexual battery with
a deadly weapon, and violat-
ing probation.
Christopher Lee Ensmin-
ger, 32, was arrested last
August after being accused of
raping a woman he met at a
Centre Street bar.
Ensminger's arrest was a
violation of his probation for
prior convictions of dealing in
stolen property and grand
theft.
He was sentenced to five
years in prison with credit for
time served and his probation
was revoked and terminated.
The victim told police she
was with Ensminger and his
boss at the Palace Saloon when


gFF] Ensminger
asked his
boss for the
keys to a
v e h i c le.
and the vic-
tilm apparent-
-ly left the biar
Ensminger t o g e t h e r.
About 12:45
a.m. she
approached a police officer,
screaming, and said Ensmin-
ger had ripped off her clothes
and sexually assaulted her in a
vehicle parked outside the bar.
She said she was able to break
away and get help.
Ensminger reportedly told
police he was in a vehicle with.
the victim, but denied having
sexual contact with her.
Ensminger was also
ordered to pay a $90 public
defender's lien, $323 in court
costs and $352 in fines.

OPINION


Media circus: Half-truths, not whole truth


When my journalism class was
given the assignment to read this
book written by Howard Kurtz,
press critic for the Washington
Post, I was uninspired.
Uninspired because I judged the book by its
cover, which was subtitled The Trouble with
America's Newspapers; I was a righteous media
student, who grew up as a child of the
Walergate era, and this title sounded really
absurd to me. There was no trouble our news-
papers, they were the sacred guardians, and
they could do no wrong.
As I turned the last page, I was a changed
person. This book had awakened me to the
new reality of the media. These many years
later, I am now re-reading it.
The only fault I now have with this book is
that it should really have been subtitled The
Trouble with America's Media, since television
and radio are no better, and in many ways are
far worse.
The media has lowered itself to the point to
where the likes of People magazine and
Entertainment Tonight are accepted.as hard-
hitting news outlets the flashy breaking news
about Paris Hilton or Brittany Spears com-
manding valuable air time and ink over less fas-
cinating topics like Rwanda and Darfur.
But this is not new; a perfect example in
Kurtz' book is in his first chapter, titled:
"Trump; The Decade." Kurtz writes, "After 27
years of captivity, Nelson Mandela was
released from a South African prison on Feb.


11, 1990. But the historic
event was overshadowed, at
least in the New York
tabloids, by Liz Smith's col-
A umn on the impending
breakup of the Trump's mar-
riage." Kurtz goes on to
write, "Within days, Trump:
*__ The Divorce was the lead
story in USA Today, [and]
OPINIONS Time, People and New York
FROM THE magazine ran cover stories"
GOLDFISH about the Trumps' break-up.
Fast-forward to today. I
was trying to find out about
Coleman the recent freed hostages
Langshaw who were held in Colombia
for over six years, but the
Today show had a far more important story to
cover; for 10 full minutes (a lifetime in the news
industry) they dissected the ever-important
Christie Brinkley divorce while the two oppos-
ing slimeball lawyers, grinning in their $5,000
suits, argued their cases on the split screen.
Thanks NBC, for keeping me up to date and in-
the-know; Fox News was too busy using innu-
endo about Barack Obama, a Christian whose
father apparently was an Islamic terrorist, but
the Democratic candidate for president is not a
Muslim (wink, wink, but we want you to think
he is nonetheless).
And it's not just the national media playing
the game; the local press is right in it too. The
only difference is that instead of covering


Hollywood over the real woods; the local media
likes to produce stories that incite readers, and
they spin it with a heavy dose of one-sided
quotes and many column inches of them.
One time, I was interviewed by Folio
Weekly. They asked me all sorts of questions
over the telephone, and I spent a great deal of
time answering them, in great detail. What did
they do next? They interviewed several other
people with opposing views, but instead of just
asking them the same questions (to be "fair
and balanced," a supposed standard of journal-
ism), they asked them what they all thought of
my comments. The story, of course, read with
the yellow press angle intended. Now in all fair-
ness, I wrote a scathing rebuttal and Folio
Weekly printed the entire three-pager, unedited
in the following edition, so bouquets to them
for that.
More recently, I was interviewed by the
Georgia Times-Union about a secondary access
to Cumberland Island via Fernandina Beach.
Again, I spent a great deal of time with the
reporter on the phone, and he really seemed to
get my perspective. But by the time I read the
story, I wondered who really wrote the article.
Perhaps the editorial board thought it was too
straight-forward, and it would not incite read-
ers as they thought it should, so it was spun to
accentuate the fears of people versus my reas-
surance that we intended to work with them
not against them.
Even our own beloved News-Leader cannot
seem to rise above the fray. The recent articles


Even our own News-Leader
cannot seem to rise above the
fray, with its apparent vendetta
to go after the city manager

about the city manager and the former fire
chief are perfect examples. Lines like: "Grown
men cried, angry words were spoken" paint a
picture of a situation that was blown out of pro-
portion. Normally, if there were no apparent
vendetta to go after the city manager, then
compliance-with federal or state laws would not
warrant the soap-opera-like "above the fold"
status this non-story attained.
But since this topic of the strife between the
former fire chief and the city manager has now
become "a story," maybe someone will consid-
er interviewing some different people who may
know the other side of the story, which could
possibly explain some of the strife.
BfUt then again, with the way the media rep-
resents things these days, it probably really
doesn't matter. The whole truth is apparently
never as important as half the truth.
Daniel Webster is probably rolling in his
grave.

VIEWPOINT/AL RizE/COUNCILON AGING


New home for Council on Aging


As we examine statis-
tics one thing is
obvious, the popula-
tion of Nassau
County is maturing.
According to the Bureau of
Economic and Business
Research, the population of
Nassau County is expected to
nearly double between the
years 2000 to 2030. The star-
tling fact is that the popula-
tion over the age of 65 will be
four times greater in 2030
than it was in 2000.
It is projected to increase
from 7,267 to 31,657. What is
even more notable is that
the population over the age
of 80 will increase from
1,340 to 8,649 during that
time period.
What do these statistics
tell us? Is it that people are
healthier and living longer or
are more retirees moving to
Nassau County? It is probably
a combination of a number of
things that are increasing this
aging population. What we do
know is that there will be

Congratulations and many thanks to
Thomas Stillwell for the free surfing clinic. He
and his surfing friends organized a great
event!
It was open "to everyone" and we all came.
The morning was well thought out and nice-
ly executed. The instructors were fun, espe-
cially Ryan. He and his board Betsy helped me
get up and enjoy the ride.
The event was a happening! Thanks to all
who donated their time and expertise. I hope
it will become a regular event.

This is no(

recently caught a 40-pound kingfish. It's
not the biggest fish I ever caught, but it's
the biggest one I've ever boated while fish-
ing alone. Except for a big cobia a summer
or two back that tried to kill me and destroy
the boat, that king is surely the hardest-fight-
ing fish I ever tangled with.
To put it bluntly, I now understand why
whole flotillas of men go out in huge boats
armed with heavy tackle and gallons of testos-
terone and adrenaline to catch kings.
Neither my boys nor my fishing buddies
could go so I decided to have a quiet day on
the water alone. Since my heart attack a cou-
ple of years ago, my smarter half doesn't allow
me to venture offshore alone. Not that going
offshore alone is a good idea, anyway, but it
never stopped me before.
Cobia and the kings are running close to
the beach right now. Big whiting and pompano
are abundant. No problem, I figured. I can fill
up the cooler with something and not venture
out far enough to give my wife chest pains fret-
ting about me.
I jigged up a live well full of baitfish and,
headed to the buoy line on the big pipe being ,
laid to pump sand on the beach. I noticed plen-
ty of bird activity around the buoys, which tells
me dinner is on the table. After a couple hours
fishing, all I got was a couple of black tip
sharks and something that got away which I
believe was either a cobia or a small to medi-
um king mackerel. By then, it was around
noon and hot as blazes. My bait well pump had
pooped out and everything in the well was


Beach control
There have been several letters to the editor
regarding the use andcontrol of our Amelia
Island beaches. It seems to me there are two
issues involved here. Most importantly, who
owns and/or controls the use of the beach (and
that may be different foithe beach above or
beyond the high tide line)? Is it the owner of the
beachfront property or the governmental entity?
If it is the beachfront prqoe, ty owner, then I
would assume that owner, cali Gide if they want
vehicles driving on their pfjprty, people pic-
nicking and camping, etc.,lf|iestablished that
government has control, thde,'i xt issue is what
uses are allowed on theb9a h and how it is con-
trolled. What city or county ordinances are
already in effect?
Clearly there are areas where driving on the
beach is not allowed. How is that enforced or is
it? Are cabanas allowed on the beach and can they
(along with other paraphernalia) be left on the
beach overnight? If there is an ordinance pro-
hibiting that, it is clearly not enforced. Is camp-
ing overnight allowed? Are fires allowed on the
beach? Most fireworks are not legal, but that is
not enforced. Littering is illegal, but how is that
enforced? Dogs must be on a leash and "picked
up after" and that is not enforced.
Obviously not everyone will be pleased with
,,* wh.t. is'flq.yed on thF bca, h. Som"iii, uld have
no restrictions at all on beach use, some would
like rules that would keep the beach naturally pris-
tine. But I think it is the job of the Fernandina
Beach Commission and the Nassau County
Commission to determine what is acceptable and
desirable (if indeed they have that control). If
the solution is to just enforce current ordinances
and enforcing them requires too much time of law
enforcement, perhaps a solution would be a vol-
unteer patrol (as suggested by one writer of a let-
ter to the editor), and I would be among the first
to sign up.
Volunteers like myself and others already pick
up litter, and along with the beach cleanup pro-
vided by the city, my impression is that the beach
from Peters Point to Sadler Road (where I walk
the beach almost daily) is much cleaner this year
than in the past.

Driving on thebeach
You know, we all should have listened to
Lowell Hall back in the early '80s when he was
defending driving on the beach. I think the major-
ity of the people thought, "We have always driv-
en on our beach, no one can or will ever take that
away. Lowell is just wasting time and money."
Now look. We have gone from having to buy
a permit to being restricted to a couple of hundred
yards of beach. Now certain folks, most from
out of town, are trying to take those last few
yards. We should have listened to Mr. Lowell.
I was in Fernandina in June and I was show-
ing my 11-year-old daughter all around town. I
showed her Topsy Smith's old place, I showed her
where the Bamboo House was. I showed her the
two houses I grew up in, the high school I grad-
uated from and the remnants of Buccaneer Field
where we walked in commencement. I then
showed her the beach the rec center, Putt-Putt,
where the water slide and Go-karts used to be.
The whole time I was giving my tour, she kept say-
ing, "It was cool when you lived here dad." Yes it
was, yes it was.
In closing I just want to say, don't let people
from out of town have a say in what happens on
your island, get off your butts and take a stand.
Stand with Lowell Hall and Alan Mills and the
thousands of others that want the people of
Fernandina to be able to use the major attraction
to the island. The beautiful beach!

Commoner?
Kudos to the letter writer setting Joe "your
land is my land" Palmer straight on the beach driv-
ing issue. After reading Cup's latest rant, "The rich
could use a cold shower" (July 18), where he
sets limits on each person's use of Mother Earth
real estate, water use, food intake and air con-
sumption it is apparent Joe's no commoner,
he's a socialist. Move over, Karl Marx.

Clogging arteries
When Tim Russert, 58, went on to be with the
Lord recently, the media and, indeed, the world,
lost one of its most precious people ever. Why?
Well, in my opinion, the A.M.A. (American
Medical Association) is to blame.
One of the main culprits in Tim's life, very pos-
sibly, was artery clogging margarine and other
hydrogenated oils (trans fats) found in almost all

JOE just starting to run out when
I got to the rocks and there
were few other boats in the
Joe Palmer vicinity. I found a spot with
deep water and running cur-
rent about a hundred or so yards from another
boat, rigged the pinfish on and dropped them
both over the side. I set both rods in their
holders, got a bottle of water from the cooler
and was just getting comfortable when all hell
broke loose.
The tip of the port-side rod begin twitching
like mad as the pinfish went into panic mode. I
reached for it about the same time the rod
bent double and a Penn 4/0 reel dogged down
tight began spilling line like I'd forgotten to set
the drag.
When I lifted the rod from the holder, the
fish felt the hook and fled in a burst of speed
and strength that I couldn't believe. In about
three seconds, he peeled off about 100 yards
of 30-pound trilene. I prayed the 40-pound
mono leader would hold whatever seemed hell
bent to spool my reel in one run. "What the


hell?" I thought, putting my arms, shoulders,
neck, back and legs into the fight.
The fish ran like a torpedo straight to the
anchor line of the boat about 100 yards ahead
of me. I figured, that's it; he's gone. I could feel
him running up and down the anchor line try-
ing to break loose. In desperation, I released
the reel to give him a little slack and maybe
entice him to run away from the line. Instead, I
got the biggest dang bird's nest I've ever seen.
Furious, I began reeling like crazy and, lo and
behold, the fish followed.
A boatload of teenagers came alongside
and asked me what I had. I told them I didn't
know but that it was kicking my tail and that if
I grabbed my chest and keeled over, I wanted
them to take over. "Don't let this fish get
away," I ordered.
After three powerful runs that nearly broke
my desire to catch him, I finally got the king
alongside. Then I realized my gaff was on the
other side of the boat. I jammed the rod
between my legs, wedged my butt between
the rail and the seat and leaned over, back-
wards to get to it. I managed to get a good gaff
right in the head and the big mack went limp.
The kids hooted and cheered when I lifted him
into the boat.
I drank three bottles of ice water, poured
three more over my head to cool off and head-
ed back to the marina. That's no fish story and
I've got the pictures to prove it.

Offshore drilling
I fully support offshore drilling in our state.
Not only do I support offshore drilling, but also
any other source of energy we can lay our hands
on. Nuclear, wind, solar, biofuels, clean coal tech-
nology, whatever it takes. Look folks, we have a
full plate of urgent issues facing our nation and
one of them is developing some sort of long-
term energy plan.
Now I know that drilling offshore today isn't
going to make one bit of difference in lowering
gas prices at the pump. In fact, it will take years
to bring even one drop of that newly discovered
oil to the consumer and even worse still, it'll be
subject to the world market. That means if not pro-
tected by some sort of law, that it could very well
be exported to other countries. So it really bugs
me when Republicans quote today's gas prices as
an excuse to start drilling.
Just tell the truth. The world is running out
and we need to protect our interest until new
alternative technologies catch up. It also bugs me
when my own Democratic party touts the above-

First, in the short run there will be a huge
influx of money and jobs into our local economy.
I'm not talking minimum- wage jobs either. It

County medical coverage
Dependent medical coverage for Nassau
County Fire Rescue families is in danger of being
cut from their employees' benefits package. This
is not a new effort on the part of the county gov-
ernment. Since 2005, they have attempted to cut
this benefit from the fire rescue benefits package,
although they have achieved this in other depart-
ments.
Recently, at least two other departments have
complained about this, publicly citing loss of
employees and the inability to hire new employ-
ees because of this matter. If they choose to cut
dependent medical coverage this will cost the
individual family approximately $12,000 per year.
This will greatly affect our family due to our
daughter's pre-existing birth defects. Due to this,
we are unable to get independent medical cov-
erage and we rely on group coverage to further
her ongoing medical care. We are not the only
family in this situation.
Recently, the firefighters were forced into
impasse on this and other matters. Impasse was
demanded shortly after the professional fire-
fighters came out publicly supporting the oppos-
ing candidates of the commissioners of District
1 and District 5.
The effects of this action will result in a loss
of experienced firefighters and paramedics to
surrounding counties and cities and make it dif-
ficult to draw in qualified personnel.

Youth members attend conference


We must continue following in the
history's long, winding path on the road
to freedom. The path of non-violence, a
determination to power through prob-
lems without losing sign of a campaign
leading to victory in our lifetime.
We need our young people to get
involved in the NAACP Youth Council.
The council is active in Nassau County.
They would like to have their meetings
in different areas of Nassau County.
Meetings are held the first Monday
of each month at the Peck Center at 5:30
p.m. We need our youth to become lead-
ers and stand up today for America and
do whatever it takes to help this day and
every day.
Members of the Nassau County
NAACP Youth Council traveled to
Orlando for the Florida State
Conference Freedom Banquet at Disney
World. While there, they were able to
see some of the ACTSO (Afro-


Academic, Cultural,
Technological and
Scientific Olympics)
performances. Youth
a get the opportunity to
show off their talents,
competing against
other countries to rep-
resent the state at the
national.
NOW AND Nassau County

.... pate in ACTSO, but
representing the coun-
Maybelle ty were Felicia Green,

Moment, vice presi-
dent; Ryan Amy, chaplain; and Marquez

Brown. Representing the Nassau
County branch was president Courtney

attending workshops and getting to
know youth from other counties. While
in Orlando, they stayed at the Rosen
Centre Hotel. They are wanting to
attend the ACTSO Showcase July 28
through Aug. 2. Anyone else wanting to
attend, see Vernetta Spaulding, youth
advisor.

There is an old Chinese tale of a stone
cutter. One day as he was cutting
stones for a very rich man, he saw a
person of royalty being carried on the
shoulders of men. As this royal man
passed, he collected taxes from all the
working people. The stone cutter
became very jealous and wished to the sky to become a man
with this much power. He was granted his wish and then was
carried along the streets, but the heavy clothes he wore made
him unbearably hot under the sun, He then wished to the sky to
be as powerful as the sun. His wish was granted and he became
the hot sun.Every day he would beat down on the people below,
until one day he was blocked by a cloud. He screamed at the,
cloud to move, but it could not without wind. The man then
wished to the skies to become the wind. For what could be
stronger than the wind9 For days he blew across the land
pushing everything over. Suddenly he came upon a huge
boulder. He blew and blew, but the stone did not budge. Then he
made one last wish. He wanted to become a stone. The sky
granted his final wish to become a great boulder. He knew he
was the most powerful at last. No sun could hurt him, no wind
could push him, no royalty could tax him. Then one day he felt a
small knocking on his side. He wondered what could possibly
challenge him? He looked down and saw a small stone cutter
chipping away at his base.

MARTY ROSS

Nothing refreshes a garden
like a soaking rain. But when
rainwater rushes down our,
streets and into storm drains
instead of filtering through the
soil, trees and flowers don't get
the benefit of it.
Rain gardens- plantings that
actually capture and take advan-
tage of storm water change
all that.
"They change how we view
storm water not as a problem,
but as an asset that we can use
to create beautiful landscaping,"
says David Dods, an environ-
mental engineer in Kansas City
and an enthusiastic gardener
and promoter of rain gardens.

Rain gardens have been
around for about 10 years long
enough to be misunderstood.
Many people confuse them with
bog gardens, but, Dods says,
"you're not trying to create a
wetland. You just want to cap-
ture the rain. It should soak
away in about a day."
Since they are designed to
absorb water, not hold it, rain
gardens are not mosquito incu-
bators.
Rain gardens make sense
for gardeners everywhere.

the country, from Oregon to BARBA

For the News Leader

How well do you know
your military history? Does
this date, July 27, 1953, or the
military battles of Bloody
Ridge, Heartbreak Ridge, Old
Baldy, The Hook, Hill Eerie
and Pork Chop Hill ring a
bell? They should. The events
of these engagements filled
many diaries, letters home
and still hold significant mem-
ories for many of our Korean
War veterans and their fami-
lies.
The Korean War was an
escalation of border clashes
between two rival Korean
regimes. On June 25, 1950,
the communist North Korean
Army assaulted South Korea
and major hostilities contin-
ued until the armistice (cease-
fire agreement) was signed on
July 27, 1953.
Upon the end of World
War II, the United Nations
developed plans for a trustee-
ship administration for the
nation then known simply as
Korea. President Truman pro-
posed a joint occupation of
Korea by two powers. The
Soviet Union would occupy
the territory north of the 38th
parallel and the U.S. would
control the area south of the
line. Historians surmise it was
the intention of both countries
to establish a stable and uni-
fied Korea in order to with-
draw their military forces

from the area.
Unfortunately, neither
country wanted the Southeast
Asian peninsula to fall into the
other's hand. Both major pow-
ers desired to withdraw their
military and resources out of
Korea, but they also wanted to
leave behind a nation that was
favorable to each nation's ide-
ology. The Soviets desired a
communist Korea whereas
the U.S. wanted a democratic
nation to be established. The
38th parallel, also known as
the Military Demarcation
Line (Korea), then and now
still separates the two disput-
ing countries.
In the United States the
Korean War was officially
termed a police action the
Korean conflict rather than a
war, largely in order to avoid
the necessity of a declaration
of war by the U.S. Congress.
To some Americans it is also
referred to as "The Forgotten
War" or "The Unknown War"
because it was a major conflict
of the 20th century that
receives far less attention than
World War II and the Vietnam
War. In North Korea this
major part of history is for-
mally called the "Joguk
Haebang Jeonjaeng," or
"Fatherland Liberation War."
In China the conflict was
known as 'The War to Resist
America and Aid Korea."
On July 30, 1950, South
Korea, already under trustee-
ship of the United States,
received full commitment of
U.S. military assistance when
it became apparent to
President Truman that diplo-
macy would not repress the
fighting. He took immediate
action to assign American
forces under the command of
General Douglas MacArthur.
Soon afterwards, countries of
the United Nations gained
entrance into the military
aggression efforts. The
nations of the United
Kingdom, Canada, Australia
and New Zealand, South
Africa, India, France, the
Netherlands, Belgium to
include Luxemburg,
Columbia, Greece, Ethiopia,
the Philippines, Thailand and
Turkey were all noted as hav-
ing made significant contribu-
tions to aiding South Korea.
History shows North
Korea was initially backed
only by the Soviet Union until
China felt threatened by the
U.N. offensive. It worried that
forces would.not stop at the
border between North Korea
and China and that their


offenses might extend their
overtaking into China. China
warned American leaders that
it would intervene to protect
its national security. Truman
regarded the warnings as "a
bald attempt to blackmail the
U.N." and did not take it seri-
ously. According to historical
archives "The Chinese
Government argued that in
making Japan its main war
base in the Far East, launch-
ing an invasion against Korea
and the Chinese province of
Taiwan, and carrying out
active intervention in other
countries in Asia, the United
States was building up a mili-
tary encirclement of China."
Chairman Mao Zedong issued
the order to assemble the
Chinese People's Volunteer
Army on Oct. 8, 1950, the day
after American troops crossed
the 38th parallel.
During this war the fight-
ing techniques employed in
both World War I and World
War II were both used. It
began with- the World War II
strategy of quickly implement-
ing massive infantry advances.
followed by well-planned air
bombing raids. It was soon
evident because of the Korean
terrain that battles would
quickly evolve using World
War I type trench warfare.
Military engagements includ-
ed the battles at Bloody Ridge
and Heartbreak Ridge in
1951, during 1952-53 the bat-
tles for Old Baldy and the
Hook, 1952 Battle of Hill Eerie
and the battle for Pork Chop
Hill in 1953.
On Nov. 29, 1952, U.S.
President-elect Dwight D.
Eisenhower fulfilled a cam-
paign promise by going to
Korea to find out what could
be done to end the conflict.
With the United Nation's
acceptance of India's proposal
for a Korean armistice, a
cease-fire was established on
July 27, 1953. An armistice
was signed between the U.S.,
China and North Korea.
South Korea refused to sign it,
still leaving the two Koreas
separate to this day.
Korean War historians
record over a million
Americans served in this war
where 170,000 were killed,
wounded or missing in action.
The Florida Korean War
Memorial is located in > ... .
Cascade Park, Tailla.iiee-. :!
An excerpt from the official
Florida website states, "The
focal point of the memorial
plaza is a large vertical circle
that represents the purity of


life through perfect geometry
called the 'Circle of Life.' The
top of the circle is broken, sig-
naling an interruption in this
purity. A broken fragment that
would complete the circle is
lying adjacent to the large cir-
cle and has become embed-
ded in the ground. The
names of those killed in action
are etched on the inside of the
broken fragment which once
completed the 'Circle of Life.'"
The memorial represents
those who have fallen and
shows that the Korean War
interrupted the lives of all
involved, including family,
friends and those of all servic-
es who fought there. This
interruption in the "Circle of
Life" left an indelible mark on
our nation, a mark that will
never be replaced a point in
history.
So on Sunday, 55 years
later on the anniversary of the
the Korean War armistice,
let's spend a few moments
and remember those 583
Floridians killed in action, and
many more that were wound-
ed in action, were held as
POWs and still listed as miss-
ing in action from this
"Forgotten War."
To the war veterans still
alive we say "Thank you."
Your support to our country
during its time of war will
never be forgotten. It was not
a '"Forgotten War" and never
will be. To the families who
lost service members while
supporting this devastating
conflict, we salute your loved
one with dignity. They fought
courageously in the name of
democracy and freedom.
They did not fight in an
"Unknown War." For the
youth of today, I ask you to
remember this war the
Korean War. Learn from it.
Always seek an amicable solu-
tion; striving for peace. Never,
forget the sacrifices made or
the lives lost.
Sometime over the next 25
years those who fought in the,
Korean War will most likely
no longer be with us, but we
will still remember them on
Memorial Day, Veterans Day,
Flag Day and the Korean War
Armistice Day.

DAN SHANKS
Community Newpapers
With a stellar outing by
David Price in the first game
and an explosive offensive dis-
play in its second game, the
Callahan senior Allstars won
the Section 3 tournament in
DeBary Saturday and earned
the right to go to state.
The boys from Callahan
beat Deltona 4-0 in the first
game and defeated Rockledge
12-2 in six innings in the sec-
tional championship game. .
"We still didn't swing the bat
like I want us to, but pitching
and defensively, we're doing a
solid job," Head Coach Keith
Price said. "Our pitching has
been there for us and we're
making all the plays."
Against Deltona, the two
teams were held scoreless until
the bottom of the fourth inning.
Callahan's Wayne Bishop start-
ed the inning by hitting the ball
to right field. The right fielder
tried to make a diving, catch,
but the ball got past him and
rolled all the way to the wall.
Bishop easily reached third
base for a stand-up triple. Price
brought Bishop home with a
single to center field to give
Callahan a 1-0 lead.
In the bottom of the fifth
inning, Dustib Bishop laid
down a hunt to the pitcher to
start the frame, but the pitch-
er's throw to first sailed into
shallow right field, allowing
Bishop to reach second. Bishop
stole third and Garth Holton
plated Bishop with a ground
out to shortstop.
Callahan scored two runs in
the bottom of the sixth for the
final margin. Leadoff batter
Matt Jones was hit by a pitch
and Price drew a walk. After a
sacrifice bunt by Garrett
Mixson moved the runners
over, Wesley Wilson hit a
ground ball to.thirdibase. The
third 'bastbantr1i&ddto throw
Jones out at home, but Jones
beat the throw to give Callahan


an punches

a 3-0 lead. Wilson ended up get-
ting picked off first base, but
Price scored on the play to put
Callahan ahead 4-0.
In seven innings, Price only
gave up two hits and struck out
11 batters. Deltona's best scor-
ing threat caribe in the top of
the second. The team had run-
ners on second and third with
two outs, but Price got Jowie
Ortega to strike out looking to .
end the threat.
"At the time ... it was real
big," Price said. "That was a
momentum changing part of
the game. You give them a
chance to score a run there, it
could change the whole ball
game. To me, that was the
biggest part of the game."
Stellar defense from Calla-
han in the top of the third inn-
ing also helped keep Deltona
off the scoreboard. Benito
Perez was hit by a pitch and
tried to steal second, but Holton
threw him out. Andrew Gilhoo- .'
ley was hit by a pitch and
advanced to second on a wild
pitch, but Price caught him
leaning too far off second base
and picked him off.
"We came through when
they needed to on defense,"
Coach Price said. 'That was
another momentum breaker."

"She's fluid," Stebbins said. "She has

study radio and television broadcasting.
Before her four years at FBHS, Johnson

"She changed girls basketball here,"

Fernandina Beach Middle School.
With Johnson on the roster, the FBMS

even a conference title.
"We dominated the county," Roberts

is an excellent student as well. I think she'll

Johnson was three times the most valu-
able girls player in the county. I Icr senior
season she averaged 15.3 points, 4.6
rebounds, 2'assists and 4.6 steals per game
for the Lady Pirates, who went 20-8, fin-
ished district runners-up to Ribault and
advanced to the state playoffs for the first
time since the mid-1980s.
Johnson is the first FBIIS student to
receive an athletic scholarship in girls bas-
ketball since the mid-1980s as well. She
scored a season-high 31 points her senior
year, just two points shy of her career-high
33 points.


Stebbins has steered teams to back-to-
back 20-win seasons and Santa Fe was
ranked in the Top 10 in the nation last year.
But, she said, her program is a stepping
stone to the next level.
"It helps get kids to their next destina-
tion," she said.
Johnson, who leaves Aug. 16, is thrilled
with her choice of schools
"Santa Fe is the best fit for me overall,"
she said. "Academically, attending a major
university wasn't a problem, however, I
chose Santa Fe because, not only would I
have the opportunity to actually play and be
a part of a great basketball program, but
Santa Fe is one of the top, if not the best jun-
ior college with an outstanding academic
program."


Exercise may

arly results from an
ongoing study gives
some evidence that
exercise may help
slow brain shrinkage in peo-
ple with early Alzheimer's
disease. The study is being
conducted by the University
of Kansas School of
Medicine. Review has shown
that participants who were
more physically fit had less
brain shrinkage than less-fit
participants. The initial
results were published in
this month's issue of the
journal Neurology.
One of the study's
authors, Dr. Jeffrey Burns,
stressed that there were too
few patients to make conclu-
sive results but felt that
these initial results create
the basis of a starting point
from which other studies
can follow. Also being inves-
tigated is whether or not
exercise can ward off
Alzheimer's or have some
sustained reduction effect
over time.
The study included 57
people with early
Alzheimer's. Their physical
fitness was assessed by
measuring their peak oxy-
gen demand while on a
treadmill and brain shrink-
age was estimated by MRI
scans. All brains tend to
shrink with normal aging,
however that rate is doubled
in people with Alzheimer's.
While those who were more
physically fit showed less
brain shrinkage, interesting-
ly they did not score signifi-
cantly better on mental per-
formance testing.
Alzheimer's disease is a'
progressive and fatal brain
disorder named for German
physician Alois Alzheimer,
who first described it in
1906. Most cases of
Alzheimer's appear after age
65. Alzheimer's destroys
brain cells, causing prob-
lems with memory, thinking
and behavior, and is the
sixth-leading cause of death
in the U.S. At present there
is no cure.

Discovery has given hope

tory medications, such as

Head offshore for mackerel


T he best king mack-,
erel fishing this
weekend should be
at the FA fish haven
and the Nassau live bottom.
Pogies are the No. 1 live
bait. You can catch them in
the river before you go in the
Amelia River, the Bells River
and even the Intracoastal
Waterway.
If you get out there early
in the morning I would con-
centrate on slow trolling live
baits 60-100 feet back, flat line
on the surface.
There is not a lot of live
bait on the beaches of Amelia
Island. Most of the bait is in
the river. Don't waste your
time. But you may want to
stay tuned to channel 18 on
the vhf radio and listen for the
king mackerel fishermen.
Wait for the menhaden to
start running along the beach
if you can't find them in the

COMING TUESDAY

Shine a Light
(Concert documentary. PG-13.
122 m/ 2008)
Martin Scorsese's
"Shine a Light" may be the
most intimate documentary
ever made about a live rock
and roll concert. Certainly it
has the best coverage of
the performances on stage.
Working with cinematogra-
pher Robert Richardson,
Scorsese deployed a team
of nine other cinematogra-
phers, all of them Oscar
winners or nominees, to
essentially blanket a live
September 2006 Rolling
Stones concert at the small-
ish Beacon Theater in New
York. The result is startling
immediacy, a merging of
image and music, edited'in
step with the performance.
Rating: *ki*

The Band's Visit
(Comedy. PG-13. 86m.. 2008)
The Alexandria (Egypt)
Ceremonial Police
Orchestra arrives on the
wrong bus in the wrong
small Israeli town, and is
stranded overnight. The
bandleader (Sasson Gabai)
stiffly approaches Dina, the
owner of the cafe (Ronit
.Elkabetz), and what begins
is a long, tender night of
shared loneliness. An
exquisite film that also func-
tions quietly as a comedy.
Rating: ****

Never Back Down
(Action drama. PG-13..
110 m.. 2008)
This fun and shameless-
ly formulaic tale provides a
dazzling highlight reel for
mixed martial arts fighting.
Essentially a remake of
'The Karate Kid." Sean
Faris is the new kid, humili-
ated by the local bully (Cam
Gigandet) for having a
crush on his girlfriend

H6unsou -is the oic African

(Bryant Manning)

OUT NOW
21
(Crime drama. R. 123 m.. 2008)
A formula movie'
"inspired by" a true story
about the M.I.T. students
who developed a card-
counting system that
enabled them to win mil-
lions at the blackjack tables
Sin Las Vegas. The excite-
ment is as watered-down
as the drinks. It's not
unwatchable, but you could
watch it with your eyeballs
tied behind your back and
enjoy it just as much.
Rating' (Jim Emerson)

The Bank Job
(Crime drama. R. 111 m.. 2008)
A serviceable B-grade
British heist movie, "The
Bank Job" '-is no better than
its generic title. It front-loads
the naughty sex and back-
loads the plot twists (the tit-
ular crime takes place in the
middle), but apart from. the
prominence of Princess
Margaret in the goings-on,
it's a pretty routine job, as
the use of the hackneyed
phrase "plot twists" earlier in
this sentence should indi-
cate. For a movie about
crime and sleaze and sex, it
ought to be a lot more fun.

'Brideshead' a solid period drama

No love story can be
wholly satisfying in
which the crucial
decisions are made
by the mother of the loved
woman; still less, when she is
the mother of both the loved
woman and
I the loved
man, and
believes she
is defending
their immor-
tal souls.
That is the
dilemma in
Evelyn
UNIV SAL Waugh's
PrES masterful
PRESS novel
SYNDICATE "Brideshead
_..... Revisited,"
R be made into an
Roger Ebert inspired TV
miniseries in 1981 and now
adapted into a somewhat less
inspired film.
The story is told by
Charles Ryder (Matthew
Goode), who when we meet
him is a famous painter, a
guest on a postwar Atlantic
' crossing. On board he
encounters Julia Mottram
(Hayley Atwell), who, when
she was Julia Flyte in the
years between the wars,
inflamed Charles with love.
That he was previously, less
ardently in love with her
brother Sebastian (Ben
Whishaw) was a complication.
That he was a middle-class
boy infatuated with the entire
family their inherited
Marchmain title, their wealth,
their history, their great man-
sion Brideshead was in a way
at the bottom of everything.
The novel begins during
the war, when Charles is post-
ed to Brideshead, requisi-
tioned as a military headquar-
ters. His memories come
flooding b-ack, bittersweet,
mournful. Time rolls back to,
the autumn day at Oxford,
when Charles has moved into
his ground-floor rooms just in
time for Sebastian to throw up
through the open window.
Sebastian is a dazzling youth,
witty, beautiful, the center of a
gay coterie. Charles is not his
type, is appiltfly'tidt'eVen

the whole point, and he takes
the boy under his arm.
The friendship between
Charles and Sebastian during
a summer holiday at
Brideshead is enchanted and
platonic until a tentative but
passionate kiss. Then Lady
Julia comes into view, and dur-
ing a later holiday in Venice,
she and Charles fall in love -
and Sebastian is shattered
when he realizes it. To blame
his disintegration on lost love
would be too simple, however,
because from being an alco-
holic he rapidly progresses

At the center of all of this is

'Step Brothers' rivals


even worst comedy

ROGER EBERT
Universal Press Syndicate Step Brothers
',


When did comedies get so
mean? "Step Brothers" has a
premise that might have pro-
duced a good'time at the
movies, but when I left I felt a
little unclean. The plot: Will
Ferrell and John C. Reilly play
Brennan and Dale, two never-
employed 40ish sons who still
live at home, eating melted
cheese nachos and watching
TV. When their parents (Mary
Steenburgen and Richard
Jenkins) get married, they
become stepbrothers and
have to share the same room.
This causes them to inflict
agonizing pain upon each
other and use language that
would seem excessive in the
men's room of a truck stop.
Is this funny? Anything can
be funny. Let me provide an
example. I am thinking of a
particular anatomical act. It is
described in explicit detail in
two 2008 movies, "Step
Brothers" and the forthcom-
ing "Tropic Thunder." In "Step
Brothers" it sounds dirty and
disgusting.
In "Tropic Thunder,"
described by Jack Black while
he is tied to a tree and under-
going heroin withdrawal, it's
funny.
Same act, similar descrip-
tions. What's the difference? It
involves the mechanism of
comedy, I think. The Jack
Black character is desperately
motivated. He will offer to do
ANYTHING to be released. In
"Step Brothers," the language
is simply showing off by talk-
ing dirty. It serves no comic

function, and just sort of sits
there in the air, making me
cringe.
I know, I know, four-letter
language is the currency of a
movie like this and many of
the other films Judd Apatow
produces. I would be lying if I
said I was shocked. I would
also be lying if I said I had no
taste or judgment of comic
strategy. I'm sure I've seen
movies with more extreme
language than "Step
Brothers," but here it seems
to serve no purpose other
than simply to exist. In its own
tiny way, it lowers the civility
of our civilization.
Now what about the vio-
lence?
These two adult children
do horrible things to each
other. The movie must be par-
ticularly proud of one scene
because they show part of it in

Marchmain (and Julia) are not
casually Catholic, but believe
firmly in the dogma of the
church, and that any unbap-
tized children would be forbid-
den the sight of God. Since
.Charles will not renounce his
atheism, he loses Julia,
although not before first
going as an ambassador for
Lady Marchmain to Sebastian
- one of the film's best scenes.
There are two peculiar
fathers in the film. Lord
Marchmain (Michael
Gambon), still officially mar-
ried of course, lives in exile in


a Venetian palazzo with his
mistress, Cora (Greta
Scacchi). Charles' father
(Patrick Malahide) is a pro-
nounced eccentric who lives
embalmed in a London house
and apparently prefers playing
chess with himself than con-
versing with his son. He is a
character from Dickens.
Charles is Dickensian in a
way, too: the impecunious and
parentless youth adrift in an
unfamiliar social system.
Matthew Goode plays him as -
a little bland, a mirror for the
emotions he attracts. Ben
Whishaw steals all of his
scenes as Sebastian, the care-
free ones and the doom-
ladened ones. Hayley Atwell,
as Julia, could have been
drawn a little more carefully.
The actress does what she
can, but why, really, does Julia
marry the odious and insuf-
ferable Rex Mottram, who is
nothing more than a marked-
down Jay Gatsby?

the trailer. Dale thinks he has
killed Brennan by slamming
him with the cymbal of his
drum set. He rolls him in a
rug and prepares to bury him
in the lawn. Brennan comes
to, bangs Dale with the shovel,
and starts to bury him alive.
I dunno. Maybe it sounds
funny when you read it.
Coming at the end of a series
of similar cruelties, it was one
living burial too many. There
is also an attempted drowning.
And ... never mind.
Mary Steenburgen and
Richard Jenkins, two gifted
actors, do what they can. They
despair of their grown-up,
unemployed brats. They lay
down the law. They realize
their sons are destroying their
marriage. But they exist in
another dimension than
Brennan and Dale almost in
another movie. Their reaction
shots are almost always curi-
ous because the only sane
reaction would be sheer hor-
ror, followed by calls to the
men with the butterfly nets.
Sometimes I think I am liv-
ing in a nightmare. All about


me, standards are collapsing,
manners are evaporating, peo-
ple show no respect for them-
selves. I am not a moralistic
nut. I'm proud of the X-rated
movie I wrote. I like vulgarity
if it's funny or serves a pur-
pose. But what is going on
here?
Back to the movie.
I suppose it will be a suc-
cess. Will Ferrell and John C.
Reilly have proven how talent-
ed they are in far better
movies. If it makes millions,
will they want to wade into
this genre again? I hope not.
Perrell actually co-wrote the
movie with Adam McKay, the
director. Maybe he will. But
why not a comedy with more
invention, with more motiva-
tion than hate at first sight?
There is one genuinely
funny moment in the movie:
The blind man who lives next
door has a guide dog that mis-
behaves, snarls and bites peo-
ple. Bad taste, yes. But ... I'm
desperate here. Do you see
why the dog doing it is funny,
but Will Ferrell doing it to
John C. Reilly is not funny?

ROGER EBERT
Universal Press Syndicate

Richard Jenkins is an
actor who can move his
head half an inch and pro-
vide the turning point of a
film. That happens in The
Visitor," where he plays a
man around 60 who has
essentially shut down all of
his emotions. A professor,
Walter has been teaching
the same class for years
and cares nothing about it.
He coldly rejects a stu-
dent's late paper without
even inquiring about the
"personal problems" that
made it late. He makes an
elderly piano teacher figure
out for herself why she will
not be needed again. His
lips form a straight line that
neither smiles nor frown.
He is forced to travel ,
from his Connecticut cam-
pus to New York, to-present
an academic paper he co-
authored. At least he is
honest. Protesting the
assignment, he tells a col-
leaguethe agreed to put his
name on the papers a
favor, has not read it, is not
competent to present it. He

in Manhattan. Lets himself
in. The naked African girl
in his bathtub screams.:Her
boyfriend appears from
somewhere. The interlop-
ers are ready to call the
police when he explains it
is HIS apartment. They'd
been renting it from a
crafty opportunist. These
"roomers" are Tarek (Haaz
Sleiman), from Syria, and
-his girlfriend, Zainab
(Danai Gurira), from
Senegal. They immediately
pack to leave.He sees them
out, then appears at the top
of the stairs to tell them
they can stay the night
During the film, he will
change, his mind and,
appear atthe stair-top three
Times, each time crucial.
Tarek is virtuoso on an
African drum. Walter's late
wife was a famous pianist.
He loves music, but has
failed at learning the piano.
One day Walter is walking
through Washington
Square Park and hears two
young black boys drum-
ming on the bottoms of
plastic buckets. He stops to
listen. After a while his
head begins to move side to
side, half an inch at a time,
in response to the rhythm.
There you are.
Of course the film, writ-
ten and directed by Tom
McCarthy, is about a great
deal more about illegal
U.S. residents and stupid
bureaucrats and drums and
love and loss. A fourth
major character appears,
Mouna (Hiam Abbass),
who is Tarek's mother and
lives in Michigan.
She hopes to help her
son after he is arrested in
an innocent subway inci-
dent and threatened with
deportation. Walter has
already hired a lawyer. He's
no bleeding heart, makes
no speeches, barely dis-
plays emotion, but for the
first time since his wife
died, he is feeling things.
This is a wonderful film,


sad, angry and without a
comforting happy ending.
But I must not describe
what happens because the
whole' point of serious fic-
tion is to show people
changing, and how they
change in "The Visitor" is
the film's beauty. So much
goes unsaid and unseen.
Events in Walter's professo-
rial job happen off-screen.
We are left to listen to
the silences and observe
the spaces.

YEARS Continued from lB
wilderness lodges to provide
base camps for rigorous day
activities. Small ships carry-
ing as few as a dozen travel-
ers do the same for journeys
to untrammeled islands and
remote coastal regions.
Sano offers, as an exam-
ple, stretches of West African
coast with no land access.
Simply getting there, being
there, spending time with
local people, walking Crusoe-
like on sands tracked more
by wild animals than holiday-
makers therein lies adven-
ture.
If you were 30 years
younger, you might ride a
coastal freighter or find a
local fisherman going your
way. With gray hair and an
artificial hip, you can be for-
given for thinking a luxuri-
ous chartered yacht does not
detract from the experience.
But the changes go deep-
er than quality catering. Sano
adds that older, more experi-
enced travelers define adven-
ture more broadly than in
their youth. Before knees
started to creak and bellies
began to sag, the quality of
adventure was calculated by
miles trekked, altitudes
gained, physical challenges
overcome, remote places
checked off on the score
card. It was all about going
fast and hard, being tough,
getting to places few others
had seen.
Here's one nice thing
about getting older: Some-
where along the way, per-
haps in direct proportion to
aging body parts, the con-
cept of adventure widens and
tilts toward the intellectual
and spiritual side. There
comes a eureka moment
You don'thave to walk or
kayak for it to be an adven-
ture.
Instead, you can over-
come other challenges -


STYLE Continued from B
and gape. She's included
instructions for projects on
her website, www.amybut
lerdesign.com, and pub-
lished patterns for every-
thing from yoga bag covers
to a multicolor quilt Her pre-
vious book, In Stitches
(Chronicle, $24.95), offers,
more patterns. But this latest
publication is more of a pat-
, tern for'living., .. ...

With gray hair and
an artificial hip, you
can be forgiven for
thinking a luxurious
chartered yacht does
not detract from the
experience.


logistical barriers, for exam-
ple. Tibet, de rigueur on the
adventure travel circuit these
days, was almost impossible
to visit in 1980.
The reclusive trophy
holder today is North Korea.
Pyongyang is no Shangri-la,
but it remains inaccessible to
the casual traveler, which
gives it some cachet.
To an adventurous mind,
the last heavy-handed com-
munist society excites a
curiosity similar to that of
geographic exploration: A
trench coat sort of terra
incognita ripe for cultural
expeditioning.
Indeed, the more I talk to
people of boomer age and up
about sustaining their adven-
ture travels, the more I hear
about the broader elements
of the journey. These include
cultural immersion, learning
new skills, going slower and
delving deeper.
I put the question to Pat
Morrow, a Canadian photog-
rapher and Everest climber
with nearly 40 years of
world-wandering behind him
and no sign of retirement.
Where next?
He's off to Nepal for an
autumn trek and then to
southern India for a two-
month meditation retreat. A
rigorous stint in the moun-
tains, followed by a month of
sitting on a cushion.
At our age, that sounds
like a perfectly balanced
adventure.


The Bradys have been
replaced by a far hipper
crowd, but the house is in no
danger of being finished.
The bedroom, in particular.
But a finished house is
"not necessarily the goal,"
Butler says. "A space that
allows you to constantly
evolve it, change it and
experiment with it is the key
to an artistic life."
By looking at decorating
as a process, she leaves
'rooqifor. tastes and people to
change. And she gets to the
heart ofwhat's important
, about both design and art
"creating in order to express
beauty and finding peace in
the sheer joy of it"
