Getting ready for the



adventure of a lifetime

Fulfilling

a passion

for China
MEREDITH WILSON
For the News-Leader
It's strange how a passion for
something begins. It first enters
your mind as a curiosity; a pass-
ing comment or TV documen-
tary opens your mind to a new place
or fresh idea. This notion makes
itself at home in your thoughts. You
find yourself talking about it, read-
ing about it, learning about it soon
it becomes an intrinsic part of your
life as much a part of you as your
left hand or eyes are inseparable
from your body. China has been this
way for me since I was very young.
At the age of six, I wanted to.
learn all I could about the culture
and land. I read books about it,
watched movies and began learning
the language on my own. This pas-
sion for China had entered my
mind, made itself at home and
became as much a part of me as the
I I use to type this article.
On Saturday, for the first time in
my life, I left for China. For five
months, I will experience this place
that I've heard, read and seen so
much about. My trip will have three
distinct parts: first, a formal tour
through China with seven other
Americans; second, a month of
train-traveling on my owfi; and final-
ly, three months of studying abroad
at a Chinese university in Beijing.
Through this journal, I hope to give
you a glimpse of my experiences in
*this huge, diverse country.
I left the United States with
seven other people, the Beasley
family of three from Fernandina
Beach, two members of their
extended family and Janis Foss, a
best friend. Ten years ago, Robert
and Laura Beasley adopted a little
girl from China. During this trip, we
will be retracing their steps from
the original trip, starting in Hong
Kong. Traveling to various loca-
tions throughout China, we will
visit the orphanage and foster home
of their daughter, reuniting Jade
with her foster mother after 10
years!


Meredith Wilson, right, a
Fernandina native and Univer-
sity of Florida junior, will write
about her travels in China. Her
necklace, above, contains two
charms, a Chinese coin from
her best friend and a charm
that says "courage" for the trip
ahead. Wilson will add charms
that represent cities, experi-
ences and friends she meets on
her travels.

From there, we will head to
Shanghai, then north to Beijing for
the Olympics, viewing tourist
attractions along the way. Then,
after 17 days, these seven traveling
companions of mine will leave for
the United States on Aug. 12.
From that point, I will be on my
own. For a month, I will travel
through China on trains, staying
with American families who are liv-
ing and working in China. From
Beijing, I will travel south to
Shanghai (the New York City of
China), then north to Xi'an (the'
home of the terra-cotta army) and
finally, back to Beijing. which will
be my "home" for three months.
The final leg of my trip encom-
passes my time studying abroad at
Tsinghua University, the "MIT of
China." Since I am currently a stu-
dent at the University of Florida,
majoring in Chinese, I can partici-
pate in an exchange program
between UF and Tsinghua
Univeristy for students wishing to
study Chinese through immersion.
I will be living in the dorms with all
the other international students -
not only Americans, but Koreans,
Russians and other foreign students
like myself. For three months, I will
intensely study Chinese, make new
friends, experience Thanksgiving in
China and make Beijing my home.
All of these plans can only be

Laura Beasley adopted a
little girl from China.

with her foster mother.

described as exciting very excit-
ing! I've been looking forward to
this for a long time.
This trip is a culmination of 15
years of dreaming and waiting.
However, this excitement is tinted
with some nerves and apprehen-
sion. Will I be lonely at first?
Overwhelmed by the language?
Homesick for my family? Yes, I
know I will be!
I admit I struggle with feelings
of idealism how perfect every-
thing should work out and how
wonderful the experience will be!
(And we all know how our glorious
expectations of events and people
often don't perfectly measure up to
reality!) But I try to keep a realistic
vision at the forefront of my mind.
These facts I do know: I love and
trust a God that will never leave me,
my family and friends will always be
there for me (online!), and this will
truly be the adventure of a lifetime.


'Some county employees get better
coverage than other employees, and
that' wrong. It's immoral it's unethicalo' .

NASSAU COUNTY CLERK OF THE COURT




Firefighters balk



at benefits cut


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Contract negotiations between
Nassau County government and its
firefighters' union have reached an
impasse over the county's plan to
reduce health insurance benefits.
Currently, the county pays half the
coverage for firefighters' dependents.
Firefighters are the only county
employees who still receive that ben-
efit; all other county employees hired
after Oct. 1, 2005, must pay the entire
cost to cover dependents.
"The county's position is that they
want to save money, and we certainly


understand that," said Matt Waggoner,
president of Nassau County Fire
Rescue Professionals Local 3101. "But
some of these guys are starting with a
base salary of around $33,000. They're
already paying half the dependent cov-
erage. If they pay the other half,
they're down to maybe $24,000 a year.
... I feel strongly that people will leave
if we lose this dependent coverage,
because they won't be able to afford to
stay here."
County employees hired after Oct.
1, 2005, pay anywhere from $500 to
more than $1,000 per month to insure

City chooses 2nd


interim fire chief


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Just two weeks after Capt. Olin
Carter Jr. was named the city's inter-
im fire chief, he has stepped down and
been replaced by Lt. Victor Russell, a
15-year veteran of the fire department
Fernandina Beach City Manager
Michael Czymbor said Monday that
Carter requested a replacement. He
said Carter had been reluctant to fill in
after former fire chief Danny Leeper
retired earlier this month, but had
agreed to give it a try.
"He made a personal decision ...
that he wanted to maintain his role as
a captain," Czymbor said. "... He just
felt it would be in the city's best inter-
est (to step down)."
Carter, who has been with the
department for 30 years, is one of
three captains at the department. But
Czymbor named Russell, a lieutenant,
as the new acting fire chief instead of
one of the other captains.
"I looked about everybody that was
there and based on everything that I
knew about them and their experi-

ence and what they wanted and I
selected Lt. Russell," Czymbor said. "I
just felt that with his skills and abilities
that he was the appropriate person,
and he met that challenge ... and put
the department and the city's best
interest above his own."
While Carter has ended his role
as interim fire chief, he will be involved
in the process of selecting a permanent
replacement for Leeper. Czymbor said
Carter is one of four people on a selec-
tion committee he has tasked with
reviewing the resumes of applicants
and narrowing the group down to a

County land dispute


goes to mediation


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
A mediator will hear arguments
Thursday from a group of developers
and county officials in an effort to
resolve a dispute over housing densi-
ty in rural Nassau County.
Former county attorney Mike
Mullin, now in private practice, rep-
resents several property owners on
the West Side who are appealing a
county opinion that their land is zoned
for no more than one dwelling per 20
acres. The landowners contend they
could develop their property with one
dwelling per acre.
County Growth Management offi-
cials say regulation is needed to plan
for significant development on the
West Side in the next few years.
"There is really going to be urban
development pressure, and suddenly
people who are saying, 'There's noth-
ing out here, there's just a bunch of


Mullin Fufidio


trees,' are going to say, 'Whoa!"'
County Planner Doug McDowell said.
"This isn't tomorrow or next year,
but in five years, maybe 10 years, it will
happen. ... Not every area, but some
areas will face development pressure;
everything points to it."
Mullin filed a petition to appoint a
"special master" to decide the appeal
from landowners Joseph Amelio,
Kinard Investments, Musselwhite

Florida KidCare on mission to reach more families


Florida KidCare, the state's children's
health insurance program, is starting an
outreach campaign across the State of
Florida in August. Why is this so impor-
tant? Many children in Nassau County
without health insurance could be eligi-
ble.
KidCare is for any child without
health insurance. To date, more than 1.4
million children are enrolled in Florida
KidCare. The governor and Florida law-
makers appropriated additional money
this year to cover 38,000 more uninsured
children. Children enrolled in KidCare
receive comprehensive health care,
including doctor visits, check-ups, shots,
surgery, prescriptions, vision and hear-
ing screenings, mental health and dental
care.
Most families pay $20 or less per


0 month. Many families
pay nothing at all.
Families with unin-
S sured children,
regardless of income,
can qualify for low-
cost KidCare premi-
umrs.
Families can apply for benefits on the
Internet or through the hundreds of
statewide KidCare community partners,
including your local health department.
You can also call to request an applica-
tion over the phone. Families are encour-
aged to use the easy to navigate website
to apply for benefits, check their account
status, make payments online and re-
enroll in the program. Families who
apply online get enrolled faster because
their applications tend to be more com-


plete.
In the past year, aggressive communi-
ty outreach and application assistance
helped more than 70,000 families enroll
in KidCare. Families are receiving
KidCare information and getting enroll-
ment help at community events, mobile
clinics, health fairs and businesses all
across Florida.
The governor's office, several state
agencies and hundreds of community
partners are aggressively reaching out to
help eligible families apply for KidCare.
If your child is without health insurance,
you should apply now. You can apply
online at www.floridakidcare.org, apply
over the telephone at 1-888-540-5437 or
by contacting the Nassau County Health
Department at (800) 295-2396 for an
application.

Waggoner said.
'This has been an issue
with the (firefighters') union
for a number of years," said
County Coordinator Ed
Sealover. "...The county can't
unilaterally say, 'No, we're tak-
ing it away from you.' That's
something that needs to be
bargained for with the union."
But the impasse has ended
bargaining for now, according
to Waggoner. The firefighters
have been without a contract
since the last one expired Sept.
30, 2007.
County Commissioner
Mike Boyle, who took office
after the 2005 cuts took effect,
said the commission's hand
was forced by the rising cost of
health care. "It became a
budgetary matter for the coun-
ty to try to bring these rates
under control," he said.
"Sometimes when cuts have to
be made, you try to do it in a
way that gives the individual
some choices. We could cut
something you don't have a
choice about, or we could cut
insurance, and maybe you can
find a better deal than we
could."
"Is it high? Absolutely. It's
way, way too high.... But we've
actually lowered it in the last
two years," said Commissioner
Barry Holloway. "We're trying
to cure this situationnot just for
the firefighters, but the whole
county."
Sealover agreed the county


has been trying to lower rates.
"Through a committee of some
different folks, we made some.
plan and design changes,
which we believe will reduce
costs by about 10 percent," he
said.
That's not good enough for
Waggoner, however. "I think
the county has an obligation
to the people who work for
them," he said. "I think it
was a bad decision to take
insurance from any employee,
and I'm very glad my union
stood up. I know the county's
got cutbacks and rollbacks, but
you've got to take care of the
people who are taking care of
you."
Clerk of Court John
Crawford echoed Waggoner's
assessment that the coverage
cuts affect the county's ability
to hire new people.' "We're very
grateful to the taxpayers for
funding our salaries and fund-
ing our benefits. That being
said, they depend on us to hire
competent, trained people," he
said. "... We are keenly aware
of the stresses on the taxpay-
ers. We're keenly aware that
there are people without jobs
and without insurance. What's
so disturbing to us is that peo-
ple's lives depend on our
employees."
Commission Chair
Marianne Marshall insisted
that cutting the dependent sub-
sidy was a fiscal necessity. "We
had to look at some way to
have a cost savings, and this
was presented," she said. "I
despised it, but when you look
at businesses, they're strug-
gling. We make these deci-
sions, and they affect the lives


of everyone."
Crawford, however, sees it
another way. "Instead of rigor-
ous bidding to make sure we
get the best coverage every
single year, the county has cre-
ated a disparate system where
some classes of employees get
better coverage than other
classes of employees, and
that's wrong. It's immoral, it's
unethical. When they created
this class of employees hired
after Oct. 1, 2005, they said,
'OK, you don't get any depend-
ent coverage.'
"I've got some grief with
them over it, because they in
effect reduced the salaries of
employees they don't know
and don't care about," he
added. "So if the union's angry
at them, they've got every right
to be."
"The county administration
isn't the villain in making
health care costs so high,"
Boyle insisted. "We're going
to look like the villain, but we're
really just the guy caught in
the middle trying to make it
balance. Utopia would be to
have enough revenue to be
able to give all our employees
good insurance. I'd love to have
that happen."
"The answer to that is to
have a pristine insurance selec-
tion committee made up of con-
stitutional officers and the
county commission, and have
a more frequent and rigorous
competitive bidding process,"
Crawford said. "... The county
needs to let the insurance com-
panies know we're not going to
take this lying down. We're
going to be aggressive."

A special master proceed-
ing is a non-judicial settlement
process for private property dis-
putes. The special master will
first try to mediate an agree-
ment between the two sides.
Failing that, a nonbinding rec-
ommendation would be issued.
The final decision would ulti-
mately be in the hands of the
Nassau County Commission.
The roots of the dispute go
back to when Mullin was still
county attorney. "It seems that
there was a period from April
2004 through January 1, 2007,
when Nassau County was oper-
ating under a memorandum
from (Mullin) interpreting the
2002 comprehensive plan
amendments in a manner that
allowed for an automatic
amendment of the compre-
hensive plan," said Growth
Management Director Walter
Fufidio. "Filing of a deed less
*than 320 acres at any time
would, according to this memo,
potentially change density from
one unit per 20 acres to one
unit per acre. This department
is currently attempting to find
approximately how many such
transactions took place during
that time period."
In essence, property own-
ers with parcels too large to
qualify for densities of one unit

per acre could file deeds that
subdivided those parcels.
Fufidio said he believes that
violated the intent of the com-
prehensive plan.
"This isn't just a West Side
issue," Fufidio said. "It affects
everybody. ... If you happen to
be west of 1-95, this may or may
not affect you, and if you live
east of 1-95, this may or may
not affect you. It's a countywide
issue."
"Some people are trying to
simplify (the issue), and some
people are trying to overcom-
plicate it," Mullin said. "The
densities to me are not the
issue it's the regulation that
regulates development."
"I always respond to peo-
ple that you have to look in the
last five years or 10 years or 20
years, and you don't see a sud-
den explosion of housing


units," Mullin said. "I think
what's lost in the furor over
densities is that the fear peo-
ple have of urban sprawl is pret-
ty easily dealt with. If you real-
ly want to create a regulating
environment that everybody
agrees with, all you've got to
do is write the regulations, hold
public hearings and let the peo-
ple have input.... I contend that
good planning is kind of like
the visioning process you ask
people, 'What do you want (the
community) to look like?'"
Mullin said he hoped that
the special master's mediation
would lead to an agreement.
"The interesting thing in
Florida is in civil cases filed, all
of them will go to mediation,
and currently settlements are
running- about 70 to 76 per-
cent," he said.

Tennis tourney serves


up terri
With the speed of a Maria
Sharapova serve, Amelia Island
may soon lose some of its glob-
al panache.
The women's professional
tennis tournament, held here
each spring for 29 years, may
be moving down the road. The
former Bausch & Lomb
Championships tournament
has brought global recognition
and exposure to Amelia Island.
It is unfortunate that the
tournament may be moved
next year to the Sawgrass
Country Club in Ponte Vedra
Beach. Over the years, the
tournament has attracted
famous players like Martina
Navratilova, Chris Everett and
recently Sharapova herself.
The move has very much to
do with sponsorships. Bausch
& Lomb had announced that it
would no longer sponsor the
event for undisclosed reasons.
That put local organizers on
notice to find a' new main spon-

SOL UTIONS for a stronger Florida


Problem: Energy Security
Solution #1: Florida is a growth state and needs
a state policy to promote energy security.
Lawmakers can help put Florida on
the road to energy security by
approving, expansion of nuclear
power, off shore drilling for
natural gas and oil, investing in
clean "green" energy alternatives.
I will ask leadership to appoint a
.', special committee to develop a
Sslatewide energy security plan that
will lower costs, secure our
.. ,independence from foreign oil and
-. : create clean alternatives. We need to
carelully consider the proposal by T.
/ Boone Pickens (pickensplan.com).

)sure
Concours d'Elegance in March
and the Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival in May.
The tournament has been
televised by ESPN for some
time now. Television cameras
have a way of delivering an inti-
mate portrayal of an area. You
can still hear the announcer's
voice resonate the words,
"here on beautiful Amelia
Island," as local scenes flick-
ered across the screen.
There was a debate over
how much the tournament con-
tributed to the island's econo-
my. Some retailers have said
they saw little increase in shop-
ping activity that weekend.
Many of the spectators
drove in and drove out after
matches. Others stayed within
the confines of the Plantation.
But local tourism officials are
correct in labeling the Bausch
& Lomb Championships a "sig-
nature event." An area is for-
tunate to have such events to
draw attention and tourism.
As with the rest of the state,
a major driver of the economy
here is tourism. Putting the
area under the microscope of
TV cameras for a weekend of
tennis (the tournament actual-
ly lasted most of a week) is
irreplaceable. The benefits, and
the exposure, will not be easi-
lyreplaced by something else.
And, to complicate matters,
there are preliminary reports
that the widely renowned
Concours car.show is being
solicited by other towns. Like
with the tennis tournament,
any temptation for an event to.
leave our area should be miti-
gated before it becomes a real-
ity.
Our little slice of paradise
has so much to offer. Getting
opportunities to show it off are
few. Let's not put our commu-
nity in this type of predicament.
Focus our efforts and atten-
tion on "signature" events and
activities such as these.
Quibbling over minor affairs -
as we often do does nothing
to benefit our community.

Meaningful difference in the lives of children


The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia
Island and the Boys & Girls
Clubs of Nassau County have
formed an alliance to benefit
the two local Boys & Girls
Clubs. The partneFship will
actively engage resort guests
and nearly 650 Ritz-Carlton
employees in volunteer oppor-
tunities, while contributing
resources to the fundraising
and operational efforts of the
Boys & Girls Clubs.
"It's hard to overestimate
the impact this will have on the
youth at our two local clubs,"
said Patrick Sabadie, president
of the board of directors for the
Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau
County Foundation. "We are.
the fortunate recipient of the
best in corporate philanthropy.
This partnership will provide
us with program support for
our kids, significant fundrais-
ing assistance for our founda-
tion, and the fresh energy of
employees and guests from
The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.
We couldn't be more delight-
ed, or more grateful."

on Aug. 14, will be the first
event to benefit from the new
alliance. Children from the

the Miller Freedom Club on
Old Nassauville Road for a day
of games and prizes. Employ-
ees of The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia
Island will run the carnival
activities, serve lunch and pro-
vide refreshments, allowing the
Boys & Girls Club staff to fully
enjoy the celebration with their
members.
On Oct. 17, the Boys & Girls
Club will host its 2nd Annual
Speakers Forum at The Ritz-
Carlton, Amelia Island. The
gala fundraiser will feature a
nationally recognized keynote
speaker, a silent auction and an
evening of food and entertain-
ment. With the resort donat-
ing the venue, catering servic-
es and staff, all proceeds will
go directly to the clubs.
An additional event will be
hosted by the hotel in January


to honor approximately 100 Our
Guardians families donors
who have committed to spon-
soring one or more Boys &
Girls Club children for a period
of three or more years.
This fall, both guests and
employees at The Ritz-Carlton,
Amelia Island will have the
opportunity to participate in vol-
unteer activities at the local
Boys & Girls Clubs. The Give
Back Getaways program, which
is scheduled to begin in late
September, will allow vacation-
ers to spend an afternoon at
one of the clubs, assisting stu-
dents with homework, helping
the Horticultural Club with
their on-site gardens, or fos-
tering friendly competition
through sports and games.

traditional team-building exer-
cises, the groups will be offered
a variety of options that encour-

while benefiting the Boys &
Girls Clubs. In April, one such
group took advantage of the
program by purchasing and
assembling more than 200


backpacks filled with school

Community


Center?
F ernandina Beach Commissioners
approved a staff plan last week to
move the city's finance department
into the Peck Community Center
and to reallocate space for non-profit agen-
cies there.,
We think that's a mistake. It represents
an expansion of the city bureaucracy at the
expense of the "community" represented in
the community center.
First, we have long held that our expand-
ing city bureaucracy needs to be stopped in
its tracks, if not reduced. We don't need a
new City Hall, or new city buildings or to
expand current buildings. We need to stop
the growth of city government.
We especially don't need further
encroachment on the Peck Community
Center, where the city attorney's office
already resides. The former black high
school was renovat[l.di 1t( ,I T ci.' muni-
ty center, not to 1I 'u~,ir't-il geoiniiggov- u-
ernment bureaucracy.
Communities in Schools, Big
Brothers/Big Sisters and Habitat for
Humanity all make use of their space there,
and they all serve the community around
them. Forcing them out, or forcing them
into smaller quarters, as has been pro-
posed, is not appropriate.
Remodeling the Peck library or recep-
tion room for non-profit offices reduces the
amount of space available for the communi-
ty's use. We don't think that's a good com-
promise.
We urge the commissioners to rein in
their bloated bureaucracy and restrain it to
living within our means.
We do agree that expanding the
finance/utilities building out at the city
yards is not financially smart. If the finance
department needs more space, then move
utilities out of the building they share.
The utilities department could rent com-
mercial space in the city and pass that cost
along to its customers; enterprise funds
should be paying such costs of their opera-
tions. We realize utilities customers would
then squawk, but then we'd have a direct
cost to lobby against, not some hidden cost
that taxpayers absorb.
And we'd keep the Peck Community
Center for its intended purpose as a com-
munity center. The finance department will
not truly serve the Peck community; these
non-profit agencies do. Let them keep their
offices there.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Gambling business
Re: "Gambling businesses shut down" (July 18).
As a former state law enforcement officer, I was
trained to detect and close down these type of busi-
nesses. Florida statute 551.102(8) defines a slot
machine. All of the machines I've seen in Nassau
County and the new version of these machines,
which is a phone card sweepstakes machine, meets
the definition of a slot machine under Chapter
551.102.
The penalty for mere possession of the slot
machine in the state of Florida under Chapter
551.109(2) is a $10,0(X) administrative or civil fine per
machine. I congratulate Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
for starting to crack down on these types of busi-
nesses. As your paper mentioned these types of
businesses breed criminal activity; this is evident
with the drug arrest that was made inside these
businesses as they were being closed down.
The problem with these types of machines in the
state of Florida is that they have no type of gov-
ernment testing or regulation. The only approved
slot machines in the state of Florida are those locat-
ed in Broward and Dade County and they are
allowed under Chapter 551 because there are reg-
ulated by the state. The machines in the adult
arcades and Internet cafes can be tampered with
easily and are often set to cheat the customer. The
owner of these establishments can put the key in the
machine, open the door and with the flip of a switch
on the circuit board change the setting of that
machine instantly. When the machine is set at var-
ious levels to only pay out a certain percentage this
takes all skill away from the player and it is now a
game of chance. That machine will only pay out what
the owner has told it to and often times takes away
credits from the consumers that never even realized
because they move so fast.
This would be like me setting up the gas pump
in my driveway and selling gasoline. My pumps
have no government regulation and are not tested
-by anyone but myself. Would you stop and get gas
in my driveway? The answer is no, you would go to
the local gas station that has been tested and reg-
ulated by the state to make sure you're getting
what you pay for.
Just last year the states of South Carolina and
Ohio outlawed these type of machines totally. I
applaud the town of Hilliard for taking the step of
creating an ordinance not to allow any of these
businesses in the city limits. This is something that
the Nassau County Commission should look into
and possibly outlaw these in Nassau County.
These machines make thousands of dollars and
take advantage of every citizen in Nassau County
by cheating them out of their hard-earned money
when they put a dollar in an unregulated and illegal
slot machine. It is time that we send a clear message
to these businesses, that we as citizens want them
to leave.

Beach driving
When our family moved to this island we were
attracted by the beautiful beaches and the fact we
could drive on them in a few select locations.
The first thing we did was inquire what the rules
and procedures for. beach driving were here. We
were first and foremost told you must have a Florida
license plate with "Nassau" on it. That was your per-
mit. Is this still the case? If so, why is this not
enforced?
It has come up in other letters to this newspaper
that this is potentially why we have beach driving


problems at Peters Point. Many Georgia residents
(and our own irresponsible residents) are abusing
our beaches.
If illegal and dangerous driving is taking place
at night, where is law enforcement? Where is law
enforcement during the day?
Our question to the condo people who want to
control the use of our beaches: Why did you move
there in the first place? There are plenty of no-driv-
ing properties on Fletcher that you could have cho-
sen. Also, don't worry about what "junk" we bring
to the beach. That is our choice and right, not your
problem or any of your business. And telling resi-
dents to "check into a nursing home" because they
don't want to carry their "junk" from the parking lot
to the beach is just simply obnoxious and juvenile.
To our county and town officials, please do not
give in. Please do not ruin fun family experiences
gained by the hundreds of beachgoers because of
a select few selfish condo owners.
Maybe we need a compromise. Close the beach-
es to night driving and increase law enforcement so
that rules are followed. Don't let the few irrespon-
sible, disrespectful and out-of-county troublemakers
ruin it for the rest of us beach-loving drivers (who
are year-round island residents that pay taxes to sup-
port our, and the condo owners, beaches).

Not your fathers push-ups
In his July 23 letter to the editor titled "How
many push-ups," the writer decided to question the
physical abilities of the female sex.
He states, "I question whether the average
female of any age can do any push-ups." He gave as
proof his experience with female students in Naples,
Italy in the '70s.
Well, guess what, this is not Naples, and it is not
the '70s hello! Want proof, stop by a Deborah
Dunham "Get Fit" session. She or her female stu-
dents will be happy to show you a push-up. In fact,
they will show you a whole lot of push-ups.
Mike Brodie

Giveme20
I'm a 48-year-old female. When I read "How
many push-ups?" in the July 23 edition cracking
the abilities of women doing pushups, I dropped and
easily did 20 -just toes and no knees on the deck.
Let's just say that no matter how you classify these
push-ups boy's, man's or Dunham push-up they
can be achieved at any age and by either gender if
one stays in shape. To say that a woman over 40
can't do any is a serious misconception and is
demeaning. I applaud Ms. Deb Dunham's efforts to
improve the physical fitness of women and men in
Nassau County.
Connie M. Coe
Fernandina Beach
Give me 40
A recent contributor ("How many push-ups?"
on July 23) was concerned over Ms. Deb Dunham's
women's push-up goals. I also thought they
were a little high. However, if he ever visited the
McArthur YMCA or other fitness facilities in our
area he would find women, "40 and up," who could
beat the men their age, in a fitness match. They
already live longer than we do. Most men over 40
can't see their belt buckle unless it's hanging in their
closet. It's time we got off our butts and on the
bikes.

Time for



a cyber



holiday

et's go offline. Being depend-
ent on a computer is like being
dependent on foreign oil.
Forget a gas tax holiday. Let's take a
hike from technology. Let's put down
our Blackberries, our iPods, iPhones,
Palm Pilots, GPS's and become fully
human for a day.
When we go to a meeting, we can
actually pay attention to the proceed-
ings instead of discreetly scrolling
through messages on our Blackberries.
When we have lunch with a friend, we
will actually visit with the person across
the table instead of the person wired to
our ear. It is not uncommon these days
to witness two people seated in a
restaurant, conversing not with the per-
son three feet from them, but to a
human some-
where in cyber-
space, perhaps
1,000 miles away;
two diners con-
nected, but not to
each other.
A Wi-Fi-free
week while my
ailing Apple com-
puter underwent
surgery in Texas

revealing.

Internet to at least retrieve e-mail via an
older computer proved aggravating to
the point of near ischemic episode as I
was continually shuffled from one push
button to another and told by a mecha-
nized lady to "wait for the next available
assistant," which might be 6-8 minutes.
When, one hour later, the assistant
finally came on the line, he or she
either informed you they could not
solve your problem or referred you to
yet another assistant who was equally
ignorant of answers.
Their inability to solve the issue
might have been distance. Many of
these assistants sound as if they are
based in Jakarta rather than
Jacksonville, causing one to ponder
why Americans go jobless as employ-
ers depend on foreign toil.

bution is arbitrary.
One passenger was charged only
85,000 points for the identical itinerary
that cost another passenger 130,000
points.
Maybe we are learning something
from all this a L .]:I' i According to
news reports, Americans are now buy-
ing more from need than want; enjoy-
ing staycations rather than vacations,
driving smaller cars, using two wheels
instead of four and grouping errands to
save on gas.
The results of these actions may be
more green, less greed; with less haste,
less waste. With utility bills ever rising,
we may reduce ouir electronic commu-
nications. We may spend less time con-
versing in cyberspace and more time
face to face.
Am I advocating the permanent dis-
solution of our technological advances?
Certainly not. I'm as addicted as every-
one else. A holiday, however, might
lessen our dependence and restore our
sense of balance.

Island.


VIEWPOINT/PATRICK KEOGI H/FERNANDINA BEACH


Creating more economic activity


T here you go again, Mr. Weintraub.
Would it were that simple
("Commissioner muddies water on
A1A," by Robert Weintraub, July 16).
When I think of concurrency, and particu-
larly the traffic concurrency issues that Mr.
Weintraub addressed, it helps for me to consid-
er the education parallels. I have moved to
communities where the schools were over-
capacity when my family arrived. The schools
had been designed and built to a plan to accom-
modate the community. But things never hap-
pen exactly as planned. Sometimes funds are
not available to meet changes as they occur so
the schools are over capacity.
Neither I nor the public officials responsible
for my children's education ever considered
the option of not educating the children.
School administrators assumed their responsi-
bility, found a way and went on to plan for an
equally uncertain future. They effectively
accommodated the higher public purpose. My
children's education rights trumped "the plan."
That's good government.
So it is with Florida concurrency. Property
owners have a right to believe they can develop
their property to a standard comparable to
those who came before. To do otherwise could
be considered an effective condemnation of an
owner's property rights.
Private property rights are a cornerstone of
our democracy and our economy and owners


have the right to expect
their public officials to pro-
vide the necessary infra-
structure or to find another
way to accommodate their
property rights.
What good are property
rights if they are limited to
the responsibility to pay
Keogh taxes on land for which
there is no or severely
restrained use until officials
find the means to first meet all concurrency
requirements as dictated in "the plan?" So
there are private property rights that should be
considered.
There are also significant public values that
need to be considered. Nassau County has
some important economic challenges. For
example, although household income in
Nassau is 20 percent higher than in Duval,
retail sales in Duval are 82 percent higher than
Nassau. And it's not just Duval. Incomes in
Nassau are about 13 percent higher than in
Camden County but retail sales per capital are
40 percent higher in Camden. That is a lot of
lost economic activity that may go part of the
way to explaining where the funds might be to
pay for the infrastructure required in Nassau.
It also helps explain the retail development
along AlA. Those owners see the same eco-
nomic data and want to help Nassau residents


keep their retail dollars and sales taxes closer
to home.
Another significant community value is
jobs. Out-of-county commuter rates in Nassau
County approach 46 percent. There is a good
reason for that. Wages earned in Nassau are
3.4 percent lower than the average wage
earned in the state and a full 5 percent lower
than the average wage in the Jacksonville met-
ropolitan area. So maybe we can take some
peak load traffic off the roads by creating bet-
ter job opportunities, including construction
work, here in Nassau. That will not happen by
creating a building moratorium.
Most of this does not make much differ-
ence to you if your income comes from
someplace else or you have not invested in
Nassau County. Those people may be solely
concerned about traffic. But if you own proper-
ty or a business or work in the area, and partic-
ularly in these tough times, you want the fuller
range of property and economic factors consid-
ered. You want your elected and appointed offi-
cials to administer a Tallahassee mandate like
concurrency as tailored to the local circum-
stances.
That's not conducting "a campaign to make
the laws murkier." It is making implementation
of the laws more realistic. It is not about help-
ing "developers and large landowners make
big profits." It is about creating more economic
activity in our community.

For six months, Doyle
Claxton has been frustrated in
his attempts to fulfill the
request of a soldier in Iraq for
bowling lanes.
Claxton, who owns United
Bowling in Yulee, promised the
lanes to Sgt. Robert Beane of
the First Sustainmrent Brigade
after Beane placed a request
through the firm's website late
last year. A semi-professional


bowler back in Ft. Riley, Kan.,
Beane was hoping to improve
morale for his unit, saying
the down time they get is price-
less.
Claxton's efforts to get the
bowling lanes to Iraq have been
an exercise in futility thus far.
Calling on everyone he could
think of to assist in fulfilling his
pledge, Claxton even sought
help from the Morale, Welfare
and Recreation Department at
the Pentagon.
"Cathy Huley at the


Pentagon said she would help
us," said Claxton, "but once the
phone call ended, that was it.
My son and I personally prom-
ised the lanes, but the U.S. gov-
ernment will not assist to deliv-
er, and no phone calls."
Claxton did not give up
when his Pentagon efforts went
unanswered. He contacted Sen.
Bill Nelson's office and as yet,
has received no reply.
In addition to being frus-
trated and angry, Claxton said
he feels disgraced and
ashamed.
"We can spend billions on
ammunition, but nothing on
recreation. What is the reason-
ing?"
Meanwhile in Iraq, Beane
was also frustrated with the
situation. When the hard drive
on his computer crashed,
Beane lost Claxton's e-mail
address and was unable to
communicate with him for
months.
Once communication was
restored, Beane turned to Maj.
Michael Spraggins, who works


at the Mayor Cell, for assis-
tance.
The Mayor Cell oversees
the daily logistical operations
at the camp, including life sup-
port and Morale, Welfare and
Recreation. A private contractor
runs the camp recreation facil-
ities, which include gyms,
recreation activities and a the-
ater.
In an e-mail to Claxton,
Spraggins stated he believed a
bowling alley would be a very
welcome attraction for the post
and requested additional infor-
mation about where the equip-
ment is currently being stored
as well as generic layout plans
that would indicate how the
lanes would be set up.
"While I don't have the
power to execute movement of
these items," said Spraggins, "I
may have a couple of avenues
that we can pursue to get the
equipment you have donated
over here. If you still wish to
donate this equipment, please
contact me and I will do my
best to make this a reality.


SUBMITTED
Members of the First Sustainment Brigade in Iraq "wait-
ing patiently" for bowling lanes.


I want to thank you for your
patriotism and support, regard-
less of how this project turns
out."
At this point, things are still
pending.
"We have the equipment sit-
ting here and we have not been
able to get anything done
through the government," said
Claxton.
"Unless we have a permit
number or authorization


through the government, it'll
sit there. It's like they don't
care. I hate to say that but that's
how it seems."
In an e-mail to Beane,
Claxton said, "We will not give
up on you and all you guys serv-
ing our country. It seems that
all the people in office have.
There are many, many people
here that are supporting you
all the way, good or bad."

WEDNESDAY, JULY 30. 2008 NEWS News-Leader


A morning walk in Fort Clinch


One morning recently
I decided to defer
from my now-usual
pattern of watching
the sunrise on the beach and
instead at dawn headed into
Fort Clinch State Park. In the
subdued light of early morn-
ing, the air was cool, the mos-
quitoes were blessedly
absent, and the leaves were
rustling in new and unfamiliar
ways. The night animals were
still up and about, and in the
dim light visible still before
retiring to their daytime
berths.
As I walked under the his-
toric live oak canopy of the
main road, all to myself, with
no cars or bicycles yet moving
around, the sounds of distur-
bance in the underbrush first
caught my attention. Other
times of day similar sounds in
the park most likely signaled
an armadillo, poking around
the ground in search of insect
prey. Armadillos are a nui-
sance species, relatively new
to our area, and reviled by
park managers for the unnatu-
ral disturbance they cause to
the structure of the forest
floor.
But no, this was not an
armadillo, not this time. I
stopped and looked and there
was an opossum foraging
under the leaves searching for
anything edible from fruit to
nuts to insects. This was the
first time I've seen a live wild
opossum in a long, long time.


WILD
WAYS

Pat
Foster- Turley


I've seen
dead pos-
sums on the
road, most
surely, but
they always
get deposited
there at
night. Seeing
an active
native opos-
sum and not
an invasive
and destruc-
tive armadil-
lo was a won-
derful thing.


Not long afterwards, the
first car of the day came
towards me. It was my friend
Rhonda, a park employee,
driving up to the front gate on
some early-morning adminis-
trative duty. Once she got over
the shock of seeing me walk-
ing down the road, she told
me she had just seen a deer, a
young buck with two-inch
antlers still in velvet. It was on
the shoulder of the road, right
where I was headed, and it
didn't look like it was going
anywhere. We parted, and I
continued walking up the
road, now alert to a possible
deer, with my camera out and
ready.
But before I could find a
deer, I forgot I was looking for
one. Instead, I was distracted
by the gopher tortoise burrow
near the road. I looked inside,
as I always do when I pass this
area, and alas, there was no


gopher tortoise at the
entrance greeting the day.
What was there instead was
something much more unex-
pected, a toad or was it a fat
frog? -sitting right at the
entrance to the burrow. All
kinds of animals share a
gopher tortoise burrow, from
insects to mice to snakes.
There's even a special kind of
frog that does this a gopher
frog that is so connected to
gopher tortoise burrows that
it is becoming rare along with
them maybe this was it? I
took photos and later, at
home, determined that it was
a southern toad, a niore com-
mon species, which alsQ
sometimes enjoys the gopher.
tortoise's hospitality. This
toad, like many creatures,
roams at night and hides by
day. My early morning sight-
ing must have been right
before it headed underground
to sleep off the day deep in
the cool burrow.
Back on the road again,
walking toward the beach the
next animal that caught my
attention was an adult rabbit,
in a clearing in the woods,
near the place where my hus-
band Bucko recently saw a
coyote cross the road. It's a
regular wildlife crossing area,
where I've seen bobcats
myself Here's hoping that
rabbit is alert, because it's
more than a pedestrian on the
road that's around to disturb
it


Finally, heading on the
boardwalk out to the beach,
with the sun now well above
the horizon, I saw a deer. It
was not the young buck
reported by Rhonda, but a big
deer, the back end only in
sight as it browsed away in
the dunes heading south. By
day the deer are hidden, but
dawn and dusk is a good time
to see more than their tracks.
There are lots of deer at Fort
Clinch. Some fall prey to bob-
cats, and now that coyotes are
in town, a few more will
become dog dinner. In the nat-
ural course of things, that's
fine the food chain is alive
and well in this state park, as
it should be.
I still had a mile or so walk
down the beach to my waiting
car, but I was tired of linger-
ing. The sun was already get-
ting hot, and I was eager to
get home and look at my pho-
tos and identify my amphib-
ian. By 8:30 a.m. I was home
again, drinking that long-
delayed cup of coffee, reading
the newspaper and wonder-
ing, was that all a dream I just
had, this walk in the woods at
dawn? But no, the pictures
tell the story, just another
morning in paradise.

next to her bed, and she said
her niece cleans her house for
her. She said her niece was
recently at her home and had

Stun gun used
A Nassau County deputy
used his stun gun Sunday after
a Yulee man allegedly tried to
kick him as he put him in leg
restraints.
Chad Shane Stutesman, 25,
of 86300 Riverwood Drive was
arrested July 27 and faces
charges of resisting arrest with
violence, disturbing the peace
and misdemeanor criminal mis-
chief.
According to the. police
report, deputies were investi-
gating a disturbance at a Silent
Brook Trail home where wit-
nesses said Stutesman had
been asked to leave because he
was "intoxicated and wanted to
argue." An altercation between
him and another man ensued,
but neither wanted to pursue
criminal charges, the report
said.
Stutesman reportedly
smashed a window at the resi-
dence with his fist and when
placed' in a Nassau County
Sheriff's Office patrol vehicle,
began kicking the rear window.
The deputy tried to put leg
restraints on Stutesman, but
according to police he kept
kicking and the deputy used a
stun gun on Stutesman's
chest and stomach, then suc-
ceeded in putting on the leg
restraints.
Statesman was evaluated by

ported to the Nassau County

Trio of Flyers among state's top swimmers


LeBrun


wins in


the ring

Pit LeBrun, 15, of Fernan-
dina Beach won in the sec-
ond round during a U.S.A.
Boxing match July 19 at
Edward Waters College in
Jacksonville.
"He was disqualified for
illegal punches and holding,"
LeBrun said of his opponent,
Wesley Monroe of Jackson-
ville. "I was winning."
The pair fought in the
Junior Olympic division.
LeBrun now has five ama-
teur bouts under his belt and
now advances him in tour-
naments.
Chris Wingate, 19, of
Fernandina Beach lost by
decision to Andre Byrd.
"By only a few points,"
LeBrun said. "Both of them
are about to turn pro. Chris
was frustrated because he
lost his last amateur fight.
Both might return to the
ring for an amateur fight in
St. Marys, Ga., next month.
"He might fight one more
amateur fight," said their
trainer and Pit LeBrun's
grandfather, Jean LeBrun.
"He fought too careful."
LeBrun will be a sopho-
more at Fernandina Beach
High School this fall. He also
wrestles for FBHS.


Three local swimmers and members
of YMCA of Florida's First Coast
"Flyers" swim team earned spots on
Florida Swimming's Top 20 list at the
2008 long course (meters) Junior
Olympics in Gainesville July 17-20.
Aly Kaywork, 14, swam to a person-
al best time 29.47 for 20th place.
Sofia Cardenas, 10, swam theback-


stroke in the leadoff position in the 10-
and-under girls 200 medley relay for a
new team record time of 2:45.67 and
14th place.
Mary Kate Kaywork, 10, swam in
the third position of the 10-and-under
girls 200 freestyle relay for another new
team record time of 2:17.73 for llth
place.


'This was a very fast meet and all
three of the girls accomplished what
they went there for, personal best times,"
Coach Mary Donn Bowman said.
'These girls train hard all year long and
in the end all the yardage and drills
finally pay off.
"It is an honor to be a part of the
championship team because only a small


percentage of swimmers actually make
the cut off times. We (all their coaches)
are very proud of the girls' accom-
plishments. With over 200 competitive
swimmers that train on the island and
only three qualify for this level of swim-
ming it is a great honor."
All three are members of the
McArthur Family YMCA Sailfish.


Despite talent on 0,


Florida D will have


to step up in 2008


he majority of
sports writers cov-
ering the SEC
media days in
Hoover, Ala., last week picked
the University of Florida foot-
ball team to not only overtake
Georgia in the SEC East, but
to win the conference champi-
onship outright in December.
I've got one question for
you, gentlemen: Ever heard
of a little facet of the game of
football called defense? You
know, the 11 guys that line up
against the ones who are try-
ing to score?
Just in case you didn't
notice, Florida's defense was
putrid last year, one of the
worst the Gators have put on
the field since the 1960s. Just
because the Gator defense
will be one year older doesn't
mean it will be significantly
better in 2008.
With that said, it's hard
not to be excited about the
possibilities that lie ahead
with the number of talented
offensive' skill players the
Gators will have on the field
at any one given time next
season.
Defensive coordinators
who have to come up with a
plan to stop Tebow and com-
pany could band together at
the end of the season to pro-
duce a new Discovery
Channel series called,'
"World's Scariest Jobs."
I'm sure the SEC writers
are banking on Florida
outscoring their opponents
every week, which isn't
unfathomable. But some-
where along the line, like say
in Jacksonville on the first
Saturday in November, you
have to believe the Gator
defense will have to stand fast
and make a stop to preserve a
win.
Florida's 2006 National
Championship team had it
down to a science. I'm not so
sure the 2008 version is ready
to rise to that level...
The most frustrating thing
about the Atlanta Braves dur-
ing the umpteen-year run
through the National League
in the 1990s and beyond was
their collective inability to get
the big hit in clutch situa-
tions. You could pretty much


mark your
calendar for
a Braves
post-season
choke due to
an October
i offensive
meltdown.
As mad-
dening as
those days
SPORTS were,
Atlanta's
TALlK recent out-
OHN L. ings proba-
bly have the
CRAWFORD staunchest of
--....-- diehard fans
pining for
the 2-1 win. The 2008 Braves,
albeit it not consistently, can
score with the best of the
Major League teams. Now,
they just can't seem to hold a
lead.
The epitome of the Braves'
recent struggles came
Saturday, when they scored
nine runs in the top of the
fourth inning. Ah, now there
are the bats for which we've
been longing. That is, unless
you turn around and give up
seven runs in the bottom of
the fifth inning and lose by a
run.
Not to be outdone by their'
past selves, Sunday's Braves
scored five runs in the eighth,
once again displaying that
ever elusive offensive produc-
tion. Problem is, they gave up
five runs in the fourth and
sixth innings, respectively,
and lost 12-10.
A slightly skewed version
of Simon and Garfunkel's
"Mrs. Robinson" keeps run-
ning through my head.
"Where have you gone Greg
Maddux, Atlanta turns its
lonely eyes to you, ooh, ooh,
ooh."
The typical one-hit, com-
plete game, 1-0 Braves
shutout in their heyday was
about as boring as it gets. On
the flip side, today's offensive
production doesn't amount to
a hill of beans without a pitch-
ing staff that could learn plen-
ty from the 1990s-era Atlanta
aces.

David Fashingbauer, a local chiropractor, won the men's over-50 division of the Mid Florida Bodybuilding
Championship in Orlando. He was declared the overall winner after beating winners of the over-35 and over-40
divisions. He competes again Saturday in Jacksonville.



50-year-old takes overall title


BETH JONES
News-Leader
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco
Columbo graced the cover of a Sports
Illustrated back in the early 1970s and that
cover caught the eye of local chiropractor
David Fashingbauer.
"I was mesmerized," Fashingbauer
said. "I can still see that photo today."
Fashingbauer borrowed some weights
from his brothers and started working
out on his own. His basement was his
gym.
"I started working out and getting
more into it," he said. "My brother took
me to a bodybuilding competition and that
was it. I got really into it."
His first competition was in 1982, and
in six years, he had collected 13 trophies,
11 of which were for first place.
"I remember being at the gym one day
working out," Fashingbauer said. "There
was a 19-year-old kid next to me. I looked
at his arms, shoulders, chest. Way better
than mine. He'd been working out for six
months. I see the future of bodybuilding
next to me, not in me."
So, Fashingbauer gave up c.i,," rTine
Until now.
"My father fell in February of 2007,"
Fashingbauer said. "He never exercised in


his life. He was pulling a bookcase down
the stairs by himself and it broke. He fell
backwards and hit his head. I'm going to
start working out and taking better care of
myself.
"In the back of my mind, I figured I
could enter an over-50 competition. So I
went to a couple and I figured I could beat
a couple of them."
Fashingbauer, now 50, won the men's
over-50 division of the Mid Florida
Bodybuilding Championships June 21 in
Orlando and went on to defeat the division
winners of the over-35 and over-40 divi-
sions to claim the overall title.
"They must feel terrible because some
50-year-old guy beat them," Fashingbauer
said. "If I was 25 years old and an aspiring
bodybuilder and I just got beat by a 50-
year-old I would just be devastated."
Masters divisions are 35-39, 40-49,50-
59, 60-69 and over-70 and the winners
from each division are then compared to
each other and an overall winner is cho-
sen.
"Any show I've ever been to, the young
guy always wins," Fashingbauer said. "In
that Mid Florida, the over-50 guy won. In
the next event an over-50 guy won in the
open division. I've never seen that before.
I'm proud of that accomplishment."
Fashingbauer won the men's open


heavyweight division of the Ancient City,
Bodybuilding Competition June 28 in St.
Augustine. He went on the defeat the
lightweight, middleweight, welterweight
and light heavyweight winners to again
claim the overall title. Fashingbauer was
at least 20 years older than most of the
competitors he defeated.
"It is subjective but there is criteria," he
said. "They're looking at symmetry, size,
definition and then presentation too. You
have to be really lean.
"Bodybuilding is unlike anything else
I know because it's almost 24/7. You can't
work out and then go .out and eat pizza like
you could if you're a basketball player or
something.
"The hardest part about bodybuilding
is walking onstage in front of all those
people wearing an article of clothing that
is smaller than any underwear I have ever
owned. That's embarrassing."
Fashingbauer said his patients may
not even know what he does outside
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic.
"It's kind of like the Clark Kent-
Superman effect," he said. "And it's a good
thing I'm a chiropractor because I can
treat a lot myself."
Fashingbauer competes again Saturday
in the Dexter Jackson Classic in Jackson-
ville. Visit www.dexteijacksonclassic.com.

Alvarez fires 67 to capture men's blitz tide


Fifty-three players came out to the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club last
Wednesday although the weather fore-
cast was not good. They teed off at noon
but the blitz lasted all of 15 minutes as
thunder and lightning and the skies
opening up caused the cancellation of
the blitz.
Thunder and lightning were not the
problems on Friday as 59 players came
out to play in hot and humid conditions.
Bo Alvarez found the west and south
courses to his liking as he shot a six-
under-par 67 for plus 11 points to take
individual honors.
Harry Kegler, with an 83 and plus 9,
took second. Chris Lyons, who contin-
ues to win, had a 101 and plus 6 to come
in third.
With a number of minus scores
being turned in, first place ended up in a
tie at plus 9 between the team of Lyons
(plus 6), D.D. Miller (94, plus 5), Steve
Bernhard (88, plus 1), Tommy Purvis
(92, minus 3) and the five-man team of
Kegler (plus 9), Wayne Mortenson (91,
plus 2), Larry Brauda (84, even),
Richard Harbeson (94, even) and Larry
Griner (96, minus 2).
Alvarez's plus 11, with a bit of help
from Simon Carter (79, plus 2), offset
the minus 5 of Sam DuBose (97) and
Ron Peterson (85, minus 2) to finish
third at plus 6.
Fourth place went to a five-man team
of Allen Elefterion (81, plus 5), Robert
Johnson (86, plus 4), Bob Riley (81, .
even), Gary Deelhan (84, minus 2) and
Jim Robertson (87, minus 3) at plus 4.

Breakfastmixer
Twenty-three players came out to
take part in the Saturday Morning
Breakfast Mixer with Robert (Doc)
Johnson (84) winning first place with a
net score of 68.
Tony Lopez (78) and Simon Carter
(78, net 69) tied for second place. Larry
Brauda (79) and Jerry Dean (75) had a
net score of 70 to tie for fourth place.

Part of the World Golf

Total Purse: $8,000,000 became a fixture on the PGA
Yards: 7,360 Tour in 1999. In general, any
Par: 70 player' in the top 50 of the
Official World Golf Rankings is eligible to play. Also, all members of
the Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup teams can participate and all pre-
vious winners from the Bridgestone Invitational will be extended an
invitation to play. Tiger Woods won 'the first three tournaments from
1999-200.1 at the Firestone Country Club. Last year, Woods won
again for the third consecutive year. Woods will not be playing this
week due to season ending surgery on his knee.

a) Tiger Woods in 1996 c) David Duvall in 1992

was on the mark inthewire-to-wirewin, hitting 44 of 56 fairways and
54 of 72 greens in regulation. The accurate play was a big factor, with
) -the players'allowed to use preferred lies in the fairways on the course
saturated by 8 inches of rain in a week. With the win, Reavie earned a spot in the
WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, the PGA Championship and next year's Masters
Toumament. He also picked up a tour exemption through 2010.


We are used to seeing shots that
slice or draw when we hit them with
our irons, but another common prob-
lem is a shot that goes to the right
and does not curve. This is general-
ly termed a push and usually occurs
when you are trying to make an
aggressive swing. The'crux of the problem, for right-
handed golfers, is in the left forearm and there is a
simple solution to stop the push. When you get too
aggressive with a swing, the left forearm tightens up
immensely and the end result is a dub face that is
open at impact. The problem also arises if we grip
the dub too'tighlty during a swing. Take an iron out
and hold it straight in front of you with only a left hand
grip. Then, tighten your left forearm and watch the
club face open up. The simple fix is to stay relaxed
and a straighter shot at the target will result.


Michelle Wie will play this week on the PGA Tour in the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open. It will
be her eighth time playing on the PGA Tour, in which she has yet to make a cut. She may I'
have a better chance this week though. The Reno-Tahoe Open will have one of the weakest x
fields on the PGA Tour because it is held on the same week as the World Golf Championships-
Bridgestone Invitational. Wie showed positive signs two weeks ago at the LPGA Tour's State Farm
Classic in Illinois. She was a shot off the lead going into the final round when Tour officials discov-
ered she had left the scoring area without signing her scorecard after Friday's second round. Wie finished her third
round Saturday a shot off the lead. Officials then spoke with her about the scorecard problem and she was dis-
qualified. She will play her next and final LPGA Tour event of the year at the CN Canadian Women's Open in
August. We's chances of securing a 2009 LPGATour card rest with her finishing in the top three.

Amelia Island the perfect location for a staycation


T he Big Guy and I are join-
ing those who are choos-
ing to take a "staycation."
The concept has become
increasingly popular as gas prices
have challenged people to stay
home and create a locally based
break from work and school. More
and more families are choosing a
staycation, a term whose origin is
attributed to a popular Canadian tel-
evision series. In 2006, a New York
magazine further promoted the
newly coined word by encouraging
people to spend their vacation
exploring the city instead of leaving
town.
So how can anyone in Nassau
County complain about not going on
vacation? We live in a place that is a
preferred destination for many trav-
elers. Instead of planning a trip, why


not revisit those
things in our own
backyard?
We go on vaca-
tion to experience a
S change: a contrast
to our everyday
lives. So what can
we do? How about
trying something
FROM you have always
THE wanted to do, but
PORCH haven't? Do yoga
on the beach or try
pilates.
Dickie For us, first and
Anderson foremost are our
beaches. We can
jump in the car, travel a short dis-
tance and enjoy long walks or a
swim. Always a treat. Search for the
treasure. It is there to find. Revisit a


place or try something new. Many of
us are guilty of only visiting the
beautiful and interesting places on
our island when we have visitors.
Are you guilty of always going to
your favorite restaurant? We are. So
we will try one we have never been
to or have not been to for a long
time. If you are a golfer, try a
different course. Play with some-
one new. *
History buff? Tour the newly ren-
ovated Amelia Island Museum of
History or take a tour of Fort Clinch
or Kingsley Plantation.
Like to shop? Head to the historic
district and Centre Street and
explore some of the unique shops,
all locally owned, that make it their
home.
Grab lunch at one of the many
unique restaurants that offer a vari-


ety of fare. Don't go to your usual.
Try someplace new.
Like water? Jump on one of Kevin
McCarthy's Amelia River Cruises or
take a romantic sunset cruise on the
Voyager. If you like to fish, sign up
with one of the experienced local
guides. You don't have to catch fish
to appreciate the beauty of the back-
waters of Amelia Island. Orvis
Tidewater offers fly-fishing, photog-
raphy and ecology tours. Ride a
horse on the beach. Try surfing or a
"noodle."
Get a different perspective of the
historic district take a carriage
ride and listen to the rhythmic clip-
clop of the horse's hooves on the
pavement. Try one of the two ele-
gant island spas and pamper your-
self. They are world class and right
here on our very own island. You


don't have to have a kid or be a kid
to play miniature golf at Island Fall's
putt-putt. Go on a kayak or bicycle
outing or be even more adventure-
some and try a Segway.
If you want to go further afield
there are many fascinating places
within driving distance. Consider
the Okefenokee swamp, Jekyll
Island or St. Augustine. You can get
a sense of being away, but still get
back in time to sleep in your own
cozy bed.
So we are busy not packing our
suitcases, paying for airplane tickets
or filling our gas tanks. We're on our
staycation.
Dickie Anderson's new book,
Grandmother Letters, will be avail-
able in early August. For more infor-
mation contact her at dickie@dickie
anderson.com.

am a good one. I like to
play but in a gentle way. I
am a pretty mellow dog but
boy do I love to be with
people and other dogs.
They say I am one of the
best dogs in the place.
Won't you take me home to
prove them right!
I am so, so soft, cuddly,
loving and cute, too. I am
all about people and show-
ing them how much I can
love them. Won't you take
me, this little bundle of


love, and let me show you
how grateful I'd be. Who
can resist this face?

I would like to introduce you to
Frazier. He is one sweet fellow and look-
ing for his forever home. He is one lucky
little doggie to have been raised by foster
parents that love him and have trained
him. But now he wants to find his forev-
er home so he can settle in with his new
family. He will never forget the love and
kindness he had at his foster home and
that is why he will make someone a great
pet. If you are interested in this 10-
month-old Lab mix please call ahead for
a meet and greet or stop by to see all our
animals at the shelter at 671 Airport
Road in Fernandina Beach.
Blues has an adorable little face how
you can say no to giving him a forever
home? He loves his playmates but it is


getting a little crowded so he is hoping
for a room of his own. We have many lit-
tle kittens at our shelter so stop by and-
say hello and I bet you can't take just
one.
NHS sends a big thanks to Buy Gone
Consignment Shop for holding a fund-
raiser to benefit Cat's Angels and the

ed a check for $400 for their efforts. We

Amelia Island s seemingly a separate place, thankfully untouched. Canopied
lanes lead to the graceful and historic downtown which is filled with cherished antiques
and ripe with Southern charm, making it the perfect place to idle away a lazy afternoon.

Rolling sand dunes, spattered with sea-oats waving in ocean breezes, give way to gently
breaking waves. Nestled beneath canopies of moss-draped oaks, youll find The Enclave,
and The Estate Homes Summer Beach Development Communities. Here, Mediterranean-
style architecture mplrincnls the milder aeasuns. rWith exceptional touches, both The
Estate Homes residences and the Lnclave two- and three-story townhomes come complete
with membership to the Golf Club of Amelia Island as well as the seaside Beach Club.
Enclave residents spend sun-drlench afternoons lounging at their commntruty pool, while
The Estate Home owners enjoy relaxing at their exclusive pool within the development.
