Debris removal unacce
It's been nearly two weeks since
Tropical Storm Fay swept across
Amelia Island, but piles of storm
debris mostly tree branches still sit
on city and county streets waiting for

conceded at Tuesday's city commis-
sion meeting the city "could have com-
municated better with the public"
about how it was dealing with the
Czymbor added the city is still in
the process of removing debris along
with Stateline Disposal and was nego-
tiating a contract with another debris
But Commissioner Ron Sapp crit-
icized the city's recovery efforts, say-
ing "debris removal has simply been
Sapp said that all over the city there
are still piles of trash 12 or 13 days
later as the city prepared for the pos-
sibility of Tropical Storm Hanna, head-
ed near Florida's east coast today. (Ihe
county also is lagging in debris
removal. See 3A.)
"I can't say we're going to be OK
with this level of service," said Sapp.
'It's very frustrating to deal with (res-
idents) who say they have trash out
Czymbor answered that the city
had sold its own storm debris removal
equipment, and that having Stateline
do storm recovery meant an extra
cost because it is "not included in nor-
mal yard waste collection."

City seeks island-wide police coverage
City commissioners agreed unan-
imously at a budget workshop Aug. 25
to explore a proposal from Commis-
sioner Ron Sapp to have the city police
department cover the entire island,
including the unincorporated county
Sapp presented the plan at the spe-
cial city meeting last week.
The city's current mutual aid agree-
ment with the county already requires
city police to answer routine calls on
the island that are designated as part
of the county. The county sheriff must
answer calls in the entire unincorpo-
rated area, including Fernandina
Beach, Yulee and Hilliard a much
larger geographic area with about four
times the number of residents, but
only three times the number of
Sapp wrote in his proposal that the
new plan would "make the 'severely
meandering' city-limits line irrelevant,"
and moreover would make both coun-
ty and city law enforcement more effi-
The plan, said Sapp, would also
require the county to "reimburse the
city for costs incurred by island-wide
"City taxpayers (will) benefit when
they are reimbursed for island-wide
coverage," wrote Sapp in his propos-
al, "coverage that is, de facto, taking
place today, but for which the city
receives no reimbursement"
Sapp said the proposal would also
apply to fire and rescue services.
"In the past it's been'our turf, your
turf,'" said Sapp, referring to city and
county police departments. "I don't
think we can afford that mindset any
more: Hopefully we can sit down at a
(Joint Local Planning Agency) meeting
to talk about this."
"How can we serve constituents
better?" said Sapp. "That's the whole
City Manager' Michael Czymbor
at the meeting said it was "a very good
concept, worth a lot of merit"
Vice Mayor Ken Walker said "the
goal stated here is the best possible
coverage for city residents and coun-
ty residents.... We should negotiate
soon. I don't see any reason to delay
or put it off whatsoever."
Mayor Bruce Malcolm said the
island-wide city police coverage was a
concept that had been discussed many
"I've always been in support of it,"
he said. "I couldn't agree with you
more. I don't think we're getting the
bang for the buck (from the county)
that we should be getting."
Commissioner Eric Childers said
he supported the, idea, but asked if
the city wouid take over the fire station
at the south end of the island.
Sapp answered that the city would
Lake over island-wide fire and rescue
coverage, and the county would use its
trucks, equipment and personnel
"more efficiently off the island."
"You need to appreciate this coun-
ty is huge." said Sapp. "1 have family
in the county and so does Vice Mayor
Walken ... A lot of them have grown to
accept slow response (from the coun-
ty sheriff and fire department) ... it's a
huge area they have to cover. This
would allow them to use scarce finan-
cial.and fiscal resources elsewhere...

A budget analyst lauded Nassau
County's fiscal policies Tuesday, but
told the county commission that
changes must be made to keep the
budget sustainable over time.
SHank Fishkind of the Orlando firm
Fishkind & Associates told the com-
mission that while the county's oper-
ating budget was probably sustainable
over time, its capital budget was defi-
cient. He also said the county's
dependence on property taxes which
account for 51 percent of the general
fund budget could cause a slowdown
in revenues because of new property
tax legislation and the collapse of the
Fishkind recommended that the
county keep its spending in line with
its growth. Between 2004 and 2006,
he said, Nassau County's population
grew by 7 percent but its spending
grew by 20 percent. The county
spends more per capital on general
government and court costs than the
surrounding counties, but is far below,
average in spending on culture and
recreation and transportation.
Fortunately, Fishkind said, the
COUNTY Continued on 3A
Discussion of a proposed waste-
disposal ordinance continued Tuesday
at a special meeting of the Nassau
The ordinance, which would
extend non-exclusive franchises for
waste haulers to pick up garbage in the
unincorporated areas of the county,
came under fire at an Aug. 25 meeting
when several haulers protested pro-
posed fees. The commission instruct-
ed c county sial f to revise the ordinance
to address those concerns.
The revised ordinance calls for
franchise fees and performance bonds
to be set by resolution, thereby allow-
ing public input. The franchise fees
would go toward paying post-closure
-costs of the West Nassau Landfill.
However, environmental engineer
(and former county coordinator) Walt
Gossett pointed out that the haulers
would likely pass those franchise fees
on to the customer. This would place
the burden of landfill post-closure
costs solely on residents of the unin-
corporated areas. "I'm 100 percent
behind the board on trying to get this
under control, but the burdenri of the
post-closure care of this landfill is
being shrunk," he said. The residents
of all the municipalities have enjoyed
the services of all three of these land-
fills. Now the burden of post-closure is
being put on fewer people."
"Mr. Gossett raised a very inter-
esting, and I think very legitimate,
point that every citizen of Nassau
County has contributed to these land-
fills, and now there are some sub-
stantial post-closure costs over the
next decade or more, and we're letting
a large number of them off the hook,"
Commissioner Mike Boyle said. "... I
think there's a question of fairness."
"You certainly can't tax the city res-

Industry aiming for bacteria-free oysters
TALLAHASSEE Let the fun begin!
Football season is here. And, even
though oysters are available year round,
they seem to make their biggest splash
this time of year. Sucking down a few
oysters just seems to add pizzazz to the
whole football excitement. It's a good
thing the harvests are abundant in the
United States. The total U.S. oyster har-
vest in 2006 was over 34.4 million
pounds. Florida ranked in the top four in
landings among the 18 oyster producing
states with almost 2.4 million pounds.
Oysters are wholesome and nutri-
tious. They are a low-calorie, low-choles-
terol source of protein. Oysters are also
an exceptional source of zinc, a mineral
associated with strengthening the
immune system and a prime source of
omega-3, a fatty-acid linked to lowering
the risk of heart attack, breast cancer,
prostate cancer, and of stroke.
Although the majority of the popula-
tion can enjoy oysters any way they want
to eat them, there are
some people who
should not eat raw
oysters. These indi-
viduals are at risk due
to existing medical
conditions such as
diabetes, cancer, liver
and digestive problems and deficient
immune systems. The naturally occur-
ring Vibrio vulnificus bacteria in oysters
can make those individuals seriously ill.
The oyster industry is diligent in try-
ing to educate this at-risk population
about Vibrio vulnificus and the precau-
tions they should take.
The industry has sought to increase
the development and implementation of a
"safer oyster through post-harvest treat-
ment to give consumers alternatives to
eating traditional raw oysters. The post-
harvest processes (PHP) eliminate or
reduce the bacteria in oysters to non-
detectable levels. The PHP methods

"You can't make city residents

Still, commission Chair
Marianne Marshall said some-
thing had to be done to close
the landfill and deal with the
attendant costs. "As it stands
right now, it costs us $19,000 a

said. "... There is no way this
county can operate a landfill at
$19,000 per day. So the choice
is, we move it outside. We've

"Not that I know of," County
Attorney David A Hallman said.
"'he sooner you do it, the soon-

"This is a major step, and
we've got to be sure that any-
thing we do is 100 percent,"
The commission instructed
county staff to determine
whether post-closure costs
could be distributed between
the municipalities and the unin-
corporated areas. A decision on
the ordinance was postponed
pending that determination.

Fishkind also recommend-

tax," he said. "I know there are
differences of opinion on that,
but the Hank Fishkind opinion
is that you might want to
consider it. ... I do think you
need to update your impact
fees and make real policy
decisions on how those fees
are going to be used."
The commissioners asked
Fishkind to work with county

strategies to improve budget
sustainability. "Hard choices are

After Fay, West Side homeowners ponder next move
Several homes along
Freedom Drive south of
Callahan appear normal from
the outside, but share a secret
not apparent to passersby the
interiors are in desperate need
Since Tropical Storm Fay hit
the area Aug. 21, water-soaked
carpets and drywall, along with
creeping mold have rendered
the homes uninhabitable.
As the rising floodwaters
began to peak, FEMA officials
were out in some parts of the
neighborhood Aug. 23, but
were unable to access the area
that affected Ken Colsen and a
few of his neighbors.
"FEMA, who's that?" said
Colsen, whose five-bedroom
home was still in chaos Aug.
28. "If you're going to rely on
FEMA, you're in trouble. They
seemed more interested in what
was going on around at the end
of the street."
According to Blair
Heusdens, spokesperson for the
Division of Emergency Manage-
ment for Florida, Nassau
County has been approved for
public assistance through
FEMA, which will cover
expenses incurred by emer-
gency response teams who
worked during the storm.
In addition, the county will
also receive funds to repair dam-
age to public buildings and
infrastructure. However, fund
allocations had not been
approved for private homes or
businesses as of press time. Nor
has it been proven that there
was enough damage to warrant
federal assistance, though other
options may be available.
"Even if they are not
approved on a federal level, the
state can step in," Heusdens
In a follow-up telephone
interview Sunday evening,
Colsen said he has not had any
contact with FEMA officials. He
added that his circumstances
were unchanged and the home
was still uninhabitable.
The home flooded with near-
ly a foot of water on the lower
level as the storm raged.
"The water started coming
up it came up about one inch
an hour," Colsen said.
Before the floodwaters came
into his home, approximately
35 members from First Baptist
..' Gray Gablesand
W$.-. .lr.the Flodrda
Baptist Convention Disaster
Relief and Recovery Depart-
ment helped Colsen pull car-
pets and grab belongings, most
of which are now in storage.
"If I didn't believe in God
and have family and friends to
help me out, I wouldn't be able
to make it," hesaid.
As for FEMA's lack of assis-
tance, Colsen said, "They do
some good, but put your money
into a disaster plan. If you have
homeowner's insurance, you
need to set aside some money
to protect yourself. They're not
going to write you a check, (if
you're insured) so you better
have a nest egg to protect your-
self and your home."
David Melton, a Jacksonville
contractor assessing another
home a few houses away, said
he planned to help Colsen with
While assessing the dam-
age, clearing debris and pulling
drywall at Cherron Karst-
Stokes' home, he said renova-
tion would take about three
weeks, with two crews working
seven days a week.
Karst-Stokes was still reel-
ing from the damage. The inte-
rior walls were so water-dam-
aged that the bottom half of the
drywall must now be replaced.
Inside, the home's contents
were strewn, stacked or
bagged. Outside, a large mound
of unsalvageable belongings
filled an area of the driveway.
In addition, the contents of a
nearby storage shed were
"You can't live in it," Melton
said. He added that he was
donating his time and labor
costs to help Karst-Stokes. Her
husband, Gene Stokes, was
released from the hospital fol-
lowing shoulder surgery Aug.
25. The couple is staying with
Gene's mother in Callahan.
"It's a lot of stress. I'm total-
ly displaced," Karst-Stokes said.
"Boxes, things scattered every-
where. Thank God I've had
friends to help."
Karst-Stokes said she is
insured, and must submit an
itemized list of the home's con-
tents to the insurance company
within 60 days. However, with
all of her belongings tossed
about, she's overwhelmed at
the thought of the task.
Despite the situation, the
homeowner had praise for the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office,
her friends and neighbors.
"I'm grateful that we're all
OK. I'm looking ahead for the
future and hope that things get
better," she said.
Other homes in the area
fared better. Homeowners Edna
and Richard Cornaire experi-
enced flooding in both their
garage and barn. Their grand-
daughter's horse was evacuated
from the barn and was still
under the care of Nassau
County Animal Services as of
Aug. 28. The horse will be.
returned as soon as the ground
"She's been there every day
to see her," Edna Cornaire said
of her granddaughter, Kaitlyn
"'There were a lot of people
(who) were worse off than we
were," Richard Cornaire added.
Down the road, Richard
Gowdy, was burning leaves and
debris in front of his home after
the floodwaters subsided. The
home sustained some damage
underneath and items in his
storage shed were ruined.

Tropical Storm Fay hit Nassau County Aug. 21-22.

strip debuts Sept 4, 1950. With
the onset of the Korean War,
cartoonist Mort Walker (who
turned 85 on Sept. 3) introduced
his star character who acciden-
tally enlisted in the Army.
Beetle's antics have entertained
thousands for over 58 years and
remains among the oldest
comic strips still produced by
the original creator.
September 1813 "Uncle
Sam" introduced. The nickname
is linked to a meatpacker who
supplied barrels of beef to the
United States Army during the
War of 1812. The barrels were
stamped "U.S." for United
States, but soldiers began refer-
ring to the grub as "Uncle
Sam's." Newspapers picked up
the story and "Uncle Sam" even-
tually gained widespread accept-
ance as the nickname for the
U.S. federal government In the
late 1860s andl870s, political
cartoonist Thomas Nast began
popularizing the image of
"Uncle Sam." Awhite-bearded
character in a stars-and-stripes
suit eventually evolved.

how he and Larry Lader strategized in a living

been devised, they recruited women to be fig-

"Sheriff: I'm the law in city too" (Aug. 29).
That statement holds the seeds of some very
serious concerns about how our tax dollars are
being spent. It raises the concern that the sher-
iff can walk all over the Fernandina police at
whim. Worse, it introduces politics and personal
pique into enforcement of the laws. This can
become decidedly unpleasant for the rest of us.
The sheriff complains that he doesn't have
enough deputies to police the county alone. He
complains that his budget is too tight to get the
job done. The city of Fernandina Beach has a
police department that is fed by the taxpayers too.
I fail to see why Fernandina is so crime-ridden that
it requires policing by two separately funded
police departments simultaneously.
In times of tight budgets, it is obvious that our
tax dollars are not being efficiently allocated by
our law enforcement authorities. When you look
at the law enforcement structures of thoroughly
modern counties, it is obvious that the structure
here went out of style many decades ago. Our
style of government emphasizes politics and not
professional law enforcement. It holds the seeds
of malfeasance and incompetence. The taxpayers
certainly deserve better than this. And they
should demand that the situation be fixed for
I would suggest a solution to this egregious
waste of money. First, the county and city should
be jointly served by two dedicated law enforce-
ment forces. The sheriff should be exclusively
assigned to run the jail, administer the prisoners,
secure the courts and deliver official documents.
Afully accredited professional police chief should
be made responsible for patrol duties and law
enforcement on the streets county- and city-wide.
Both would report to a professional director of
public safety.(DPS). The DPS would perform all
budgeting and oversight, working in conjunc-
tion with the city and county commissioners.
The DPS would also see to it that the.disaster
response organization and police work hand-in-
hand during disasters and ensure that police and
disaster volunteers work cooperatively.
This scheme would eliminate all duplication of
effort and allow the law enforcement personnel
to be fully specialized. It would also open the
door to growing levels of professionalism.
Perhaps any money saved could be used for
advanced training designed to progressively raise
the competence of the law enforcement officers.
The Florida House Inn is a beautiful place,
which supported local musicians and touring
bands in the past, but things have taken a turn for
the worse. Although the Green Turtle Tavern has
always been a good neighbor to the inn, they
have been subjected to jealousy-driven attacks and
JerrySpringer-inspired antics that have only
darkened the cloud that hangs over the historic
After more than a year of phone calls to the
police every Friday and Saturday night, the music-
loving clientele of the Turtle only complain about
having to walk all the way to the Palace Saloon or

they would go right next door to the Florida
House to enjoy spirits, but the hostile atmos-
phere has prompted a voluntary embargo of their
patronage. This situation has truly taken on the
form of a cruel joke. Because of the dogged calls
to the FBPD and the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, city and county resources have been wast-
ed and taxpayer's money has been frittered away
to stop songwriters from performing ("Sheriff I'm
the law in city too," Aug. 29).
The excuse behind this ridiculous, prodigal
persecution is a loud music ordinance, which is
usually enforced by the city but the problem is
that many times the police show up to write the
bartender a ticket hours after the music has
stopped and often the "loud music" is an acoustic
guitar and voice without amplification.
The fact of the matter is, if you stood on South
Third Street this Friday night between the Florida
House and the Green Turtle Tavern, the sounds
you will hear are from the live band in the Florida.
House itself, music coming from other venues on
Centre Street and the happy people on the front
porch of the Turtle, laughing, talking and enjoy-
ing the good vibes made possible by a true sup-
porter of the arts. If you stay around long enough,
you'll see the police stop and apologetically write
the poor bartender yet another trifling ticket just
to be brought to court and thrown out like the
hundreds of others before it.
As a local songwriter and musician who is
supporting a family with his craft, and who has
been shut down many, many times by the own-
ers of the Florida House, I feel it is time to step
up and be a proactive member of this predomi-
nately art-conscious community by boycotting
the Florida House.
Truth of the matter
As the wife of Chris Barnes, director of Animal
Services in Nassau County, I feel the need to
I'm sure a number of people writing in against
the animal shelter have never even visited the
shelter, much less fostered an animal. It's so easy
to be outraged by personal opinions and propa-
ganda but you must look at the whole picture.
We've got a growing problem: the reduced
support of animal shelters. It's funny how a surge
in supposed animal lovers has led to us to a place
today where an unthinkable amount of dogs,
cats, and other animals are abused and aban-
doned every day.
Euthanasia is nothing my husband or any
staff member at that shelter looks forward to. But
it is the unfortunate, sad truth of the reality in the
world of unloved and abandoned pets.
Animal shelters are grossly overpopulated. It
requires lots of money and energy and time to
keep pets in the shelters alive. People who foster
animals do so for a time but usually end up
returning them to the shelters, where they know
that if unadopted their future is uncertain.
Humane societies and rescue groups can only
take so many animals into their care.
Instead of being upset with the sheriff and
staff of the animal shelter, this community should
direct its anger at irresponsible pet owners who
contribute to the overpopulation problem by
refusing to spay/neuter their pets, by allowing
them to roam free or by abusing them or aban-
If the Nassau County community is serious
about decreasing euthanasia rates, they need to
stop trying to close shelters. This only serves to
shift the burden without addressing the under-
Animal control is not a pretty business on a
good day. If the citizens of this county would do
their part to have their pets spay/neutered, we
would not have to spend tax dollars to control the
population the way it is done. A single pair of
cats can generate an exponential offspring that
numbers over 500,000 cats in seven years.
Another point is that Animal Control needs to
update its tracking system so that specific
cats/dogs can be annotated as having been fos-
tered or having some one asking for a hold pend-
ing a decision to adopt Calling the person who
fostered the cat(s) is in order before putting
them down along with calling anyone who has
expressed interest in a particular animal. Calling.
other agencies such as the Humane Society or
Cats Angels to look over and take cats that they
can adopt out is also appropriate. This sounds like
duties for an adoption coordinator, which can be
done as an additional duty for an existing employ-
ee with the correct tools. As the lady who takes
care of the cats at the Humane Society told me
today, it sounded to her like the left hand did not
know what the right hand was doing.
The recent column by Steve Nicklas in the July
31 edition was a concise, well-written observation
by an individual who is clearly very active and
involved in the community.
Mr. Nicklas stated, "...there are preliminary
reports that the widely renowned Concours car
show is being solicited by other towns." While it
is true that in the past we have had a number of
offers some quite attractive to move the show,
there are no plans to do so at this time. After 13
years, we have become a part of the community
and we value that.relationship very much.
It is unfortunate that the tennis tournament
has decided to relocate. Based on our experi-
ences, we're sure that the local authorities in
Nassau County are hard at work searching for a
replacement. As a community with so much to
offer, that search should not take very long.

Green also received
a scholarship from her church with ari
essay topic of "What Will I Do To Keep
My Christian Belief While in College?"
Being raised in a Christian home, she
says her Christian beliefs will continue
with her if she remembers where God
brought her from, keeping his words in
her heart, remembering the words of
God preached by her pastor when he
thought she wasn't listening and taking
the Lord with her everywhere she goes,
especially to college where she knows
her Christian beliefs will be tested.
One step at a time following God's
word, holding on to faith, hope and love,
spreading kindness everywhere we go,
being thankful in all our prayers.
"Thanks be to God for the SCLC Rev.

Bolden, for helping me to continue my
education financially. I will never forget
God's blessings from you," Green said.

I'm a Pack Mule!
We've all been at that point where we were at
our capacity. We looked around and discovered
we were carrying not only our own stuff, but
everyone else's as well. How about emotionally?
Do you carry a burden until it breaks you?
Does the load get so heavy.that even the
strongest of us pack mules can't get up the
slightest hill? God's arms are strong and His
back is broad. He waits to take your burdens.

FRIDAY. September 5.2008/News-Leader
Rafting Hell's Canyon
with a faithful guide
"You better put down all
your stuff and hold on," John
told us, "this one's going to
be pretty rough." Boy, was
that an understatement. As
our rubber raft slowly turned
and our guide, that was John,
began to row us toward the
center of the river, the look
on his face said it all. He
knew we were clueless as to
what was about to happen.
Well you probably don't
know, but I just got back
from a four-day rafting trip
through Hell's Canyon. "
That's right, Hell's Canyon. I
know, what's a pastor doing
going to a place called Hell's
Canyon anyway? Trust me, I
had the same thought, espe-
cially when I learned that
we'd be rafting through a
mountain range called the
If it hadn't been for my
friend who had invited me to
celebrate his birthday, and
my love for adventure, I'm
sure I would have stayed
home and continued pad-
dling through the occasional
devils that pop up around
here, but curiosity got the
best of me.
"Woo hoo," we all shouted
as the front of our raft shot
up into the air and then down
again, just in time to let a
huge wave crash into our
chests, then onto our laps. I
have no doubt if we hadn't
heeded John's advice to hold
on, it would have washed us
out of the boat Wave after
wave and splash after splash
we crashed through the
rapids until finally we coasted
out the end, relieved but
wanting to do it all over. Like
all the rest of the white water,
now swirling around and
adjusting into the calming
pools, our hearts became still
as we looked at our guide
with a whole new respect.
"This man really knows
what he's doing," we all said
to each other without speak-
ing a single word., To position
us like he did, guide us
hitting a single rock, and
then land us in the peaceful
ing for us at
the end, was
take long to
.ULPIT be in a real
IOTES mess. The
Pastor tion to his
>b Goyette advice, the
enjoyed the trip. He was
always watching out for us.
Knowing he had been down
the river several times before
sure was comforting. He
knew exactly what was
around every corner and
because he knew, we did too.
As we spent our few short
days together, I couldn't help
but think about some simple
truths as they pertain to our
relationship with God. Like,
for instance, how important it
is to know that you're not try-
ing to navigate through life's
waters alone. I mean come
on, let's be honest, none of
us really knows what's
around the next corner.
Though we may think we do,
the bottom line is that with-
out God in our boat we're in
for some serious trouble.
I think that's been
mankind's problem from the
beginning; trying to do it on
our own, that is. And by the
way, even if we could do it on
our own, why would we want
to? God loves us so much
and has so many incredible
things He wants to share
with us, .why would we ever
want to exclude Him from
our lives? Go figure.
Either way, I find great
pleasure in knowing that
even if I go through hell's
canyon from time to time, I
know God is with me. And, if
God is with me, everything is
going to be all right.

Local church provides eye care in Nicaragua

This first CW Vision eye-
glass clinic was held at the
Cenral Iglesia de Dios June 26-

glasses and 231 pairs of glasses
were dispensed. High heat and
high humidity contributed to
difficult working conditions.
SThe group of six operated a
four-stage system to examine
eyes, adjust and dispense glass-
es and pray with each individual.

Eighth annual Turtle Trot biggest race to date for AIR
PHOTOS BY BILL DICKSON AND ED HARDEE/SPECIAL
Bill Barnes of Amelia Island Runners fires the starting gun for the eighth annual Turtle Trot Saturday.
Start of the one-mile fun run for children 10 and younger, above.
Right, Delroy Boothe, 36, of Freeport, Bahamas was the overall male
winner in the 10K. Far right, Bill Beaumont, 51, of Yulee was the male
overall 5K winner.
For the News-Leader
With an international field and a "big-city"
feel, the eighth annual Turtle Trot made a bit of
Amelia Island running history Saturday.
For the first time, the race featured the same
electronic scoring used at races in Jacksonville
and in major events around the country. Runners
wearing a radio-frequency "chip" on their shoes
were scored automatically when they crossed the
finish line and could see their times posted while
other runners were still on the course.
The field of roughly 350 finishers was the
largest yet for a race organized by the local run-
ning club, Amelia Island Runners.
Leading the men's 10K (6.2 miles) was Delroy
Boothe, 36, of Freeport, Bahamas, in 37:13.
According to the website gbrathletics.com,
Boothe held the Bahamian championship for
the 5K distance in 2000 and 2003. The women's
overall 10K winner was Britta Fortson, 35, of
Jacksonville in 42:06.
Second overall in the 10K were Preston
Campbell, 24, of Jacksonville in 38:54 and Ashley
Stanley, 30, of Yulee in 46:26. Taking third over-
all were Japheth Koech, 29, of Oviedo in 39:23
and Deborah Dunham, 41, of Fernandina Beach
Winning his third straight men's overall title
in the Turtle Trot 5K was Bill Beaumont, 51, of
Yulee in 19:07. The overall women's leader for
the 3.1-mile race was Kaitlyn Iselborn, 17, of
Jacksonville in 20:39.
Second overall among the 5K men was Jazz
Tomassetti, 16, co-capfain of the Fernandina
Beach High School cross-country team for the
coming season, in 20:09; third was Brian
McGuire, 37, of Fernandina Beach in 20:35.
Second and third overall among the women
were Leslie Watson, 26, of Tampa (22:24) and
Dawn McGee, 43, of Atlantic Beach (23:02).
In the 10K "masters" age categories, the over-
all masters titles for runners 40 and older went
to Rosa Haslip, 45, of Fernandina Beach in 47:15
and Mike Cummings, 44, of Jacksonville in 41:24.
Two Jacksonville runners took grandmasterr"
honors for runners 50 and older, Whit Hyde,
51, (45:36) and Susan Branley, 61, of Jacksonville
Beach (52:33). "Senior grandmasters" (age 60
and over) were Connie Parker, 61, of Atlanta
(1:09:06) and George White, 61, of Orange Park
Overall 5K masters winners were Fernandina
Beach runners Alicia Parker, 47, (23:04) and
Gary Haslip. 46, (21:45); grandmasters, Monica
Drouillard, 51. of Winter Park (26:49) and Greg
Parker. 51. ou Fernandina Beach (22:18); and
're..V 9&,grand sterJhne Laf(etty, '3,of.

Fernandina Beach (28:10).
Complete race results are online at
The 8 a.m. race began in humid conditions on
Atlantic Avenue near the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center with runners heading west
onto North 14th Street Runners in the 5Kturned
around near the halfway mark while 10K com-
petitors kept going and followed a route through
Fort Clinch State Park. Returning runners
crossed Atlantic Avenue to reach the finish line,
which was set up on Jean Lafitte Boulevard to
accommodate the electronic timing equipment
"I was especially pleased with the speed of the
race results. We were an hour faster than with
the manual method," said race director Jim Hill.
"Volunteers did a great job of keeping things
on track and the Fernandina Beach police were
outstanding on race setup and traffic control."
Amelia Island Runners plans to use chip tim-
ing again for its next 5K/10K, the Reindeer Run
on Dec. 13. That race will also be headquar-
tered at the Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center
with 5K and 10K routes through Fort Clinch
State Park. Runners can register online through
the Amelia Island Runners website for the race,
walk and children's runs.
A 1.5-mile walk and children's fun runs of a
mile and half-mile were also held Saturday.
Finishing first in the one-mile run among the
girls were Amy Strozinsky, Alexandra Dunn and
Elaina Stewart, and among the boys, Patrick
Borgman, Colby Thomas and Sean Mooney.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Amelia
I' island Sea Turtle Watch. Race T-shirts featured
original artwork by sea turtle volunteer and
artist Sandra Baker-Hinton.

Olympian battles through Games with injury
D ara Torres has participated in five
Olympic Games, including last
month's event in Beijing, where she
captured three silver medals.
Torres' first Olympic Games came when
she was just 17. The now 41-year-old swim-
mer is certainly older than your average
Olympian and should be expected to have a
little wear and tear on her body. And it is
exactly that wear and tear along with small
bone spurs that almost kept her out of the
But instead, she followed the mantra, "no
pain, no gain," and swam through a nagging
discomfort in her shoulder.i
And now that the Games are over, on Aug.
27 Torres underwent her second shoulder
surgery to repair the damage that years of
swimming had caused.
Her initial procedure was in November
2007 to treat a partially torn rotator cuff tear
as well as to remove bone spurs from her
shoulder blade that had been rubbing on the
cuff. She initially did well with this, but as her
training increased for the Games, she began
to have increasing pain at the AC joint, or
acromioclavicular joint, where the collarbone
joins the shoulder blade.
She was noted to have some spurring here
as well and, while anti-inflammatories and
cortisone injections helped, they were not
enough to eliminate the pain in her case and
a second surgery was sched-
uled to follow the Olympics.
The rotator cuff is basi-
cally a large tendon formed
s 5 by four of the small muscles
deep inside your shoulder.
SI This tendon group runs
through a bony tunnel made
up of your shoulder blade
and your collarbone.
- AWith motion of your
SPORTS shoulder, the tendon rubs
back and forth on the bones
MEDICINE and and the tendon gets irri-
GREGORY tated and ultimately can get
GREGORY worn and torn.
SMITH, M.D. This will cause pain,
---.. -- swelling and inflammation of
the tendon, referred to as
tendonitis. This can develop slowly over time
as a person ages or can occur more quickly
when associated with an injury. In addition,
as people get older, they also can start to
form spurs from the undersurface of the
shoulder blade and collarbone. These can
also rub on the tendon when you raise your
shoulder, causing more pain and further
injury to the rotator cuff.
The surgery itself is done through a few
small incisions around your shoulder. A small
scope about the size of a pencil is inserted
through one of the incisions and the inside of
your shoulder can be evaluated.
The rotator cuff is studied for tears both of
its undersurface and its top surface. A small
shaver can be brought in through one of the
other incisions and the inflammatory tissue
which has formed is then removed. In addi-
tion, the bone spurs are filed down and the
bony tunnel is opened up a little bit to give
the tendon more remove to move around.
If needed, as it turned out in Torres' case,
additional bone can be removed to open the
space between the collar bone and the shoul-
der blade in order to prevent these two from
rubbing across each other. ,
Torres should expect approximately six
weeks of therapy and is anticipated to be back
in the pool in about two weeks.
If you are having lingering shoulder pain,
whether you are an Olympian, a social athlete
or a weekend warrior, talk to your doctor.

Jaccard and Susan little as the
guests of honor at the Sept. 19
Third Friday on Third Street
program. Both women were
hugely instrumental in the
museum's early years and
helped turn it into the thriving
cultural center that it is today.
Jaccard is the author of sev-

including: The Historic Splendor

Fernandina: The Magic of
Found in Fernandina is
Jaccard's personal memoir
about her role in the creation of
the Amelia Island Museum of
History as we know it today. In
it, she describes her discovery
of Fernandina Beach and its
rich history, and her quest to
enshrine this history in what
was an old, rat-infested jail
Beginning with an old build-
ing and a group of dedicated
volunteers, Jaccard details the
jail's transformation into a
working museum that strives to
"educate with pleasure."

band first moved to Amelia

Life after Peck High
Early lessons laid the foundation for a scholarly life
William Barclay Allen, who
was speaker at the latest
Peck High School
reunion, grew up in
Fernandina Beach, graduated from
Peck High School, went to college in
California, and is now a professor of
political science at Michigan State
University. Allen has two new books
out: The Personal and the Political:
Three Fables by Montesquieu, and
George Washington, America's First
Progressive. In the following e-mail
Q&A, Allen talks about his life grow-
ing up in Fernandina Beach, and how
things have changed since his boy-
Q: When and where were you
A: I was born March 18, 1944, at
home, in my mother's bedroom, at
1315 Beech St
Q: What was your family life
A: My father was well known as a
preacher, though in my earliest years
in the 1940s he spent a little time bar-
bering and later captaining a seagoing
ship in search of the pogie fish. He
then became a full-time pastor at
Friendship Baptist in Brunswick, Ga.,
where he remained for over 20 years.
We continued to live in Fernandina
Beach, however, and he commuted to
his congregation. For a great part of
my childhood, my father was a much,
rarer presence than my mother, Rosa
Lee Johnson Allen (also a Peck grad).
In many respects she was the more
influential one in the house, raising 12
children, five of which were my
father's by his first marriage. She was
well known in the community as an
occasional midwife and a constant nur-
turing presence to family and friends.
It was she who kept alive our desire
for education (though Dad always

and professor of political science
at Michigan State University,
remembers growing up in
Fernandina Beach in modest sur-
roundings, but "we never thought
of ourselves as poor."
encouraged it also), and had much to
do with the fact that 10 out of 12 of us
went to college and at least eight
attained degrees at various levels.
Naturally, in those days our means
were quite modest but we never
thought of ourselves as poor.
Q; Which local schools did you
A: I attended Peck all 12 years, hav-
ing had a brief "kindergarten" experi-
ence on Centre Street before starting
Q: Who were your friends, and
what type of kid were you?
A: Most significantly, my "friends"
were almost entirely my classmates
(with the exception of a few folk like
David Rice, whom I loved very much),
and the friends of my siblings.
Naturally, I "hung out" with some
more than others, and so by the end it
was "Skip" Pratt, Clarence Harvey,
Ronald Kegler, Charlie Young, and
Jimmy Southers (among others), plus
all the men on our football team! And
there were many women, though we
doubtless interacted less frequently.
I was particularly "bookish" and I
came to be especially fond of public
speaking (though that took great
effort after an accident at age 12 left
me with four upper front teeth broken
off, as it remained throughout all my
time at home).
Q: How is Fernandina Beach
different now compared to when
you were growing up?
A: Integration introduced entirely
new dynamics into our community.
When I spent four or five months
teaching at Fernandina Beach High in
1968-69, it was already a very different
place, for Peck was no more.
Moreover, it was important for new
patterns of relationships to develop
across racial lines in ways that had not
happened previously. The era of sepa-
ration was an era of careful attention to
certain kinds of social propriety, and
those were no longer serviceable in
the new environment. Soon everything
began to change, for it was about that
time that Fernandina Beach began its
slow development into more of a
resort than a small, almost rural com-
What followed was a growing class
distinction that had never existed in
the same way previously. It is odd, isn't
it, that once the legally enforced dis-
tinctions were overturned, new kinds
of distinctions, in some way much

1969. But I do try to come
back often, and I still have a
brother and his family in
town (though we never really
thought of O'Neil as part of
town in the old days!). And
Willie Mae Ashley is ever
there, a touchstone for me
and so many others. When
we come back we always stop
to call on her, as a way of sus-
taining the life that was.
Q: What was your first
job, and what were some
of your achievements as a
A. I began to work as early
as 10 or 11, beginning with
yard work at the homes of
people who could afford to
hire youngsters at modest
rates to tend their gardens or
cut their lawns.
Gradually I moved on,
hawking the News-Leader
briefly. I then worked in vari-
ous restaurants, motels and
kitchens, keeping rooms,
doing minor maintenance. I
worked in that manner con-
tinuously.all the way through
high school. Indeed, it is
something of a wonder to me
as I receive my Social
Security reports now, to
reflect on how much of a
child I still was then! I contin-
ued to work, at whatever
opportunity availed, as I left
home to go to college.
Q: Where did you go to
college, and how did you end
up in Michigan?
A: I traveled to California
by Greyhound for college at
Pepperdine College in Los
Angeles (having declined the
acceptance at the University
of Florida, which would have
made me the person to inte-
grate the campus in
Gainesville). I brought The
Rise and Fall of the Third
Reich under my arm to
assure that I would have
something to read through
the entire three-day journey!
There I began as a pre-
med student, while also fol-
lowing a liberal arts curncu-
linm. I worked initially as a -
window-washer in a large
LA. motel, and then had jobs
in department stores and
such, though along the way I
had the painful lesson of try-
ing to work at Railway
Express, loading and unload-
ing trucks and boxcars. It
went well enough, I thought,
until a supervisor called me
in and said almost as if it
,pained him more than it
would pain me, that I should
not continue coming in or
at least should come back
when I had gotten stronger!
Thereafter, I never gravitated
toward anything but palaver,
pencil and paper.
I got help initially from a
brother, Robert Lee, who
lived in LA, and worked to
pay my way through college.
During that time I became a
political activist, cutting my
teeth on the Goldwater cam-
paign, and subsequently turn-
ing down the Nixon cam- .
paign in order to continue my
graduate studies. That led to
the Ph.D. (with my last pre-
professional job being work

I studied at Claremont
Graduate School with the
deepest thinkers of the era,
and launched my career in
political philosophy. That is
how I moved into the position
of a Fulbright Scholar, teach-
ing in France and writing my
dissertation, after which I
returned to begin my career
as a professor, first at The
American University in
Washington, D.C., and subse-
quently returning to
Claremont at Harvey Mudd
College. From there, after 22
years or so, I was recruited
as Dean of James Madison
College at Michigan State
University, where I served
for one term, then rotated
into the Department of
Political Science, where I
Q: Have you done
much traveling, and where
have you gone?
A: I have traveled
throughout Europe and
North America, somewhat in
South America and the
Caribbean, a little in Africa,
and in Australia. My travels
have been mainly profession-
al and are literally in the
thousands of trips by now.
When I served on the U.S.
Commission on Civil Rights I
traveled in the course of my
duties to every state in the
United States save Hawaii.
Q: What is your family
situation in Michigan?
A: My wife's name is
Carol, and Ihave two grown,
wonderfully successful chil-
dren, and four grandchildren.
But none of those live in
Michigan so we're still trav-
Q: What, if anything do
you miss about
A: I miss the air! Yup! I
don't mean the sulfur smell
that has been successfully
overcome. I mean the sea air.
I also miss, of course, the
folks and the days gone by.
But I remind myself that it is
never a good use of time to
repine what cannot be again.
So when I become nostalgic,
I think of the blessings and
joys I have known, and leave
the hardships to the oblivion
they deserve. I miss not so
much what American Beach
was, back then, but what I
thought it could have been.
Q Whatdo you not
miss about it?
A: I do not miss the
humidity! I'm afraid
California's dry air spoils a
fellow for that.
Q:. Describe your book
on George Washington
that has recently come
out, and what inspired you
to write it.
A: The book on George
Washington is a companion
to my previously published,
George Washington: A
Collection. I created that,
which is often called the sin-
gle, best one-volume collec-
tion of Washington's writings,
in order to allow Washington
to tell his own story. I have
now published my compan-
ion essays in order to explain
why I believe that his story is
so very important to all of us.
It is subtitled America's First
Progressive because I believe
it important that we all under-
stand where and how the pro-
gressive instinct originated in
the United States and what it
Q: If you could live any-
where in the world, where
would it be?
A: When I lived in France,
I said France. When I saw the
beautiful north of Michigan, I
said Michigan. When I visit
Fernandina Beach, I say that
there's no place like home!
