Plan to open

Cumberland

to visitors

gets scrutiny

ELLEN ROBINSON
Community Newspapers
Residents will have their first oppor-
tunity Monday to voice opinions and
suggestions for the record regarding
the Congressionally mandated Cum-
berland Island, Ga., National Seashore
transportation plan.
Public input will be factored into
the development of a plan that requires
the park to provide between five and
eight trips to historic sites on the north-
ern end of the island.
Acting Park Superintendent
Charles Fenwick says the park service
welcomes the public's perspective on
the 150-page document that outlines
the transportation plans.
"We feel getting the public's com-
ments is critical to the success of this
transportation management plan,"
Fenwick said. "We are required to
weigh in the public's suggestions for
appropriate changes for the plan if any
need to be made."'
The National Park Service is
required by public law enacted by
Congress in 2004 to develop a plan
that will provide visitors of the island
to 'explore the northern end of the
island with greater ease.
As it is now, the only way to get to
the northern reaches of the island to
see areas rarely experienced by most
island guests is by foot or by rented
bicycles. However, most island traffic
tends to congregate at the island's
south end due to accessibility, accord-
ing to Jason Helton of the National
Park Service in St. Marys. Many of
the island guests find the 15-mile trail
to the north end difficult. Those who,
desire to view these more remote his-
torical sites typically have to spend
several days on the island to complete
the round-trip journey from the Sea
Camp Dock to.these destinations and
back.
Congress's law mandating the park
service to offer between five and eight
motorized trips to the island's north
end is designed to increase accessi-
bility to the First African Baptist
Church where John Kennedy Jr. was
wed in 1996 and Stafford Cemnetery.
"This will be a significant change for
the island. The comments will poten-
tially be incorporated into the final
draft. We would like to put green tech-
nology in use, but the initial startup,

density



higher'
RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
has rendered a decision in a months-
long density dispute. At issue was the
intent behind the county's 1991 com-
prehensive plan and a 1993 amend-
merit to that plan.
According to the amended plan,
land parcels zoned as agricultural could
be developed at a density of one
dwelling per acre, unless the parcels
were more than 320 acres. In that case,
the maximum density was one
dwelling per 20 acres.
It was unclear, however, whether a
parcel should be defined according to
the property lines in the 1991 comp
plan, or from the date of sale.
The commission voted 3-1 Sept. 17
to define a parcel from the date of sale,
effectively allowing property buyers
to buy small portions of land in order
to claim higher density. Commission
Chair Marianne Marshall was the lone
nay vote, noting concerns about the
lack of infrastructure such as fire-res-
cue to support increased density.
The issue arose when several prop-
erty owners, represented by former
county attorney Mike Mullin, disputed
Growth Management Director Walter
Fufidio's finding that they could only
develop their property at a density of
1-to-20. The property owners -Joseph
Amelio, Kinard Investments,
Musselwhite Road Ventures, Pink
Grove Dairy and S.E. Timber main-
tain that they should be allowed to
develop the property at 1-to-1. Mullin,
now in private practice, filed for a hear-
ing with a special magistrate to appeal
the issue.
"I wish I could explain this in 20
words or less ... but this is a matter
that's festered 16 or 17 years, and if it
were easy to explain it would probably
be easy to resolve," County Attorney
David A. Hallman told the board.
Hallman said that the special magis-
trate had reviewed the case and would
probably render.a decision within four
to six weeks.
However, Hallman said, that deci-
sion would only be a recommendation

City to seek storm


drains for Southside


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
A citizens' task force has made. rec-
ommendations to the city for a
Community Development Block Grant
to make improvements to the South-
side neighborhood in Fernandina
Beach. The committee is seeking
$572,000 in federal funds.
Mike Spino, vice chair of the
Community Development Block Grant
Citizens Task Force, presented the
recommendations to commissioners
at their regular meeting Sept. 16.
The neighborhood bordered on
the north and south by Beech and
Jasmine streets, and on the east and
west by Eighth and 14th streets will
get new storm drains, street repaving
and sidewalks if the grant is approved.
The task force decided on three
streets for the improvements Cedar
Street from Eighth to 14th streets; Fir
Street from Eighth to 10th streets; and
Kelp Street from Eighth to 11th streets.
The streets were chosen because they
lead to a school, a community center


and several churches in the neigh-
borhood.
To fulfill grant requirements, the
)task force conducted income surveys
in the neighborhood to determine the
areas with the most need. Spino at the
meeting said the committee got "very
positive responses" from the neigh-
borhood survey.
According to Spino, the city storm
system cannot accommodate any more
tie-ins, so rain tanks will be installed
instead. The rain tanks are installed,
underground and capture storm water
beneath a grass swale. If the tanks
work well, said Spino, more may be
installed around the neighborhood in
the future.
According to city engineer Ed
Crews, maintenance on the rain tanks
will be done along the city's regular
cleaning of its storm drain system.
Crews is gathering the information
needed for the grant application, which
is due on Monday.
The task force was appointed by
the city commission in August 2007.

New pact for


county attorney
RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission approved a new con-
tract for County Attorney David A. Hallman at its Sept. 10
meeting. The three-year contract will include extension
options and an incremental salary increase.
Hallman originally proposed a five-year contract; and
asked for more security than afforded by his present con-
tract which would allow the board to terminate him with
six months' salary and benefits.
"Whatever the (current) contract says, the reality is
that if you or your successors don't like the way I part my
hair one day, all you have to do is write me a check for six
months' benefits," he said. "All I'm asking is you tell me how
long you want me to be your county attorney, and stand
behind that."
Hallman added that he would like to finish out his career
in NassautCounty. "I've probably got another 15 years as a
local government lawyer. I'd really like to make a commit-
ment to you," he said.
Hallman also asked for his salary to be raised from
$120,000 to $148,000, which he said was an average he
arrived at from studying county attorney salaries around the
state. However, he said he was willing to make conces-
sions in light of the slowed economy. "I recognize the sen-
sitivity of this issue and the difficult economic times we're

be fine."
Commissioner Mike Boyle
praised Hallman's perform-
ance. "I find it interesting from
my perspective that he was our
second choice," Boyle said. "...
With David standing here I
can say with a clear conscience
and an open heart that David
is the man who's supposed to
be here. I know he's here long
before I show up for meetings,
and he's here long after I'm
gone.
"David replaced an icon in
this community," Boyle added.
"I mean, Mike Mullin, love him
or hate him and I on occasion
have done both he was a
force to be reckoned with. For
David to come in, reduce the
budget and perform so well
speaks a lot of him."
"When you came here, we
had more lawsuits than you
could count, you rank about
as high in litigation as I've ever
seen," Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham told Hallman.
"Compared to what you've
saved us, what you're asking is
a pittance."
Commissioner Barry
Holloway agreed. However, he
had doubts about Hallman's
proposed five-year contract.
'You've done an excellent job
for the people of the county,"
he said. "This is very uncom-
fortable for me, because I feel
like I'm here for the people of
the county to get the best they
can get for the lowest dollar ...
I for one am against the five-
yearveontract:Ithink that's too'
long. It's unprecedented in the
county. I feel 'like I'm being
asked to make a decision for
people who aren't here yet.
"I want you here, but I want
it to be fair for everybody for
the people of the county and
for you and your family," he
added.

Commission Chair
Marianne Marshall agreed
that Hallman deserved the
salary increase. "I think he has

light of more recent growth.
'We need to have all the parties
sit around the table not across
the table but around the table -
and discuss the future of growth
in Nassau County," he said.
Commissioner Higginbo-
tham insisted the board resolve
the issue at hand first. 'We need
to get down to work, get it done
and get it over with so these
property owners can move for-
ward," he said.
Planning and Zoning Board
Chairman Tom Ford, who had
already come out strongly
against Fufidio's position,
agreed. "This whole thing is a
boondoggle. It never should
have gotten this far," he said.
"It was a question of interpreta-
tion by a staff that just got here
and didn't know what it meant.
... I'm not trying to help my
friends here ... I'm trying to pro-
tect my son's and my grandson's
right to sell their land.
"This is a question of inter-
pretation, is what it boils down
to, and it's been interpreted
wrong," he added.
Fufidio defended his inter-
pretation and reminded the
board that he had previously
.brought the issue before them.
"This is not something I didn't
try to address with you and the
Planning and Zoning Board
before," he said. "I want to point
out that this question has vexed
me since I got here. Everybody
who had 1-to-1 still has it as far
as I'm concerned. Small prop-
erty owners are protected in a
variety of ways.... The question '
becomes about the large prop-
erty owners who go from 1-to-20
to 1-to-1 by the filing of a deed.
"I violated mhy cardinal sin,


which is: Never make trouble
for the board you work for. But
this problem is too big to ignore.
Unless we actually sit down and
address the inconsistencies
between the (open rural) dis-
trict and the comprehensive
plan, we're doing a disservice to
the people."
Marshall said allowing the
density changes could lead to
unsupportable development.
"Who's going to address infra-
structure?" she said. "Let's talk
about fire-rescue, Let's talk
about safety issues. Who's
going to address this? ... This
has become a huge issue for
the future of'this county. If you
want to keep on doing these 1-
to-l's, that's fine and dandy, but
you are doing this county
wrong."
Boyle, however, said the
realities of the issue left the
commission little choice. "From
my perspective, this decision
becomes really not a decision
on the merits, but a pragmatic
decision," he said. "I agree with
Mr. Hallman that we'll proba-
bly get sued by someone. ...
From my perspective it's bet-
ter for the people of this coun-
ty to litigate with one opponent
in DCA than 10 or 15 or 20."
Boyle said even though he
would vote to allow the density
changes requested by Mullin's
clients, he believed Fufidio had
acted in good faith when he
originally denied them. "My
feeling is that Walter did what
he believed was in the best
interests of this county with
what was a very confusing sit-
uation," he said. "I don't think
there are any scapegoats here."

Anti-business climate at City Hall?


On an unhurried afternoon
on Centre Street, business own-
ers stop you to express frustra-
tion and concern.
The negative commentary
revolves around a perceived
anti-business sentiment hang-
ing over the historic downtown
like storm clouds in summer.
The sentiment stifles commer-
cial activity.
Its origin is only a couple
blocks away at City Hall.
Once again, the frustration
and cohcern are justified. A
monumental waterfront project
has been disrupted by the over-
regulation and anti-business cli-
mate here. Lane Development
Corp. has reportedly delayed a
revitalization of unkempt water-
front lots into high-dollar con-
dominiums, with a new marina
and retail shops.
Lane's delay is apparently a
product of timing and circum-
stance. The timing aspect is due
to several years of obliging the
city's stringent, yet arbitrary,
requirements. The coincidence
is tied to a declining real estate
market

The trips from Lane's head-

Even with millions invested

The time and hassles and uncer-

city officials really want. You
would tend to believe that offi-

but it does not appear that way.
It seems the anti-business

Hopefully, the mood and
relationship with business own-

of partnership should emanate
from the city offices.
This would appease local
business owners. The frustra-

masked by cooperation and

on Friday, Oct. 10 at Amelia
Island Plantation.
Over the years, NCEDB
has recognized a variety of
businesses for their many eco-
nomic and civic contributions
to the Nassau County com-
munity.
According to Steve Rieck,
NCEDB's executive director,
"If I can get our targeted busi-
ness prospects to visit Nassau
County, this place sells itself
in large part because Nassau
County's workers are a fabu-
lous ambassador corps. This
year's appreciation gala will
pay tribute to those Nassau
County employees from busi-
nesses large and small who
provide world-class customer
service and, by doing so, make
up our economic development
ambassador corps."
NCEDB will invite large
businesses to identify their
best employees in either cus-
tomer service or productivi-
ty/quality control and honor
them by purchasing a table (or
tables, depending on thesize of
the company) and treating
their top employees to dinner
with top management.
NCEDB will invite smaller
employers to purchase indi-
vidual tickets for themselves
and their top producers to the
dinner.
"This is a wonderful way
for our community to recog-
nize people who really make
Nassau County a great place to
live, work and play," said
Muriel Creamer, NCEDB's
immediate past chair and chair
of the gala event
NCEDB will compile an

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Fort Mose
More than 350 years ago, a
small band of free black soldiers in
Spanish Florida fought briefly at a
place called Fort Mose (pro-
nounced Mo-Say). It was little
noted at the time, and thoroughly
forgotten thereafter until a very
few years ago. On Oct. 3, our
Amelia Island Museum of History
opens a special exhibit telling the
story of Fort Mose. Is there some-
thing here that is worthy of this
attention and interest, and if so,
what is it?
Back then, Florida was Spanish,
and the states to our north were
British colonies, rapidly filling up
with European immigrants and
slaves. Florida needed men to
defend it, and welcomed runaway
slaves. Many a black slave
answered the call to freedom, and
traversed our little island on the
way south. Some of them became
part of an all black militia'ata small
town we call Fort Mose, just north
of St Augustine. In 1'739, James
Oglethorpe, the founder of
Georgia, decided to seize Florida
and put an end to this sanctuaryJor
slaves.
.Oglethorpe's force w"as too
S large for the black niilid to even
ling someone consider defending Fort Mose, and
work. the Spanish governor, withdrew
the small militia from Fort Mose
into the main fort at St Augustine,
and .Ogle-thorpe's esA:,occupied

most of the fortifications. Just
before daybreak on June 14, '140,

ported by Spanish troops and
... ...... Indians, attacked, Fort. AMose,
cisias.sau.o.rg killing about 75 of theunprepared


Georgians in fierce hand-to-hand
combat. Scholars generally
acknowledge that the successful
attack demoralized Oglethorpe's
forces, and was a significant fac-
tor in Oglethorpe's decision to
withdraw back to Georgia.
Every age needs its heroes, and
here are black heroes we can all
celebrate, men who against all
odds made their way to freedom,
journeying for hundreds of miles
along a hostile coast to St.
Augustine,. and then risking all to
fight for honor and freedom, and
maybe a little payback as well.
Ifs a great exhibit. Come see it,
and get to know your museum all
over again.

History, Fernandina Beach

New Horizons Band
A few years ago, the New
Horizons Band was formed at
Amelia Arts Academy as an entry
point to music making for adults,
including those with no musical
experience at all and those who
were active in school music pro-
grams, but have been inactive for
a long period. Many adults would
like an opportunity to learn music
in a group setting similar to that
offered in schools, but the last
entry point in most cases was ele-
mentary school or middle school.
We know that for most of the last
century, about 15-20 percent of
high school students nationally.
participated in music. From that,
we estimate that at least 80 per-
cent of the adult population needs
beginning instruction in order to
participate in music making. The


New Horizons Band program ful-
fills this need.
Active participation in music
, fills important needs for adults for
challenging intellectual activity, the
need to be a contributing member
of a group, and the need.to have
exciting events in the future. For
many people, music can serve
these vital needs better than any-
thing else. Some of the academy's
band members had this to say:
"Being old, retired and wid-
owed, I joined the band to have
something to do. Now I don't know
what I would do without it."
"This comes at a time in life
when you have the time to devote
to it. When you join the band, you
stick with it. Not many people drop
out. Ifs something that holds you."
"Next to my family, certainly,
the musical activity is the most
important thing in my life."
Many adults want the social-
ization of group instruction and
they want to be part of an ensem-
ble right from the start. Adults par-
ticipating in such a music program
meet new friends and become an
important part of a group. They
have events to look forward to con-
certs to attend, and trips. Such
goals give added meaning and pur-
pose to life. Strong friendships are
formed in New Horizons Band pro-
grams. I hope all the adults who
read this will consider joining this
year. This is not only the Amelia
Arts Academy New Horizons
Band, but also the community
band for ,this area. Make it your
band!

Executive Director and New
Horizons band director

VIEWPOINT/PASTOR TED SCHRODER/AMELIA PLANTATION CHAPEL



Medal of Freedom man of faith


Amelia Island will host 2008
Presidential Medal of Freedom recipi-
ent Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., on
Oct. 17. The world-renowned director
of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins
Hospital will be featured at the 2nd Annual
Boys & Girls Clubs Speakers Forum to be held
at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.
Dr. Carson's life is a quintessential
American story of growing up poor and achiev-
ing his life's dreams as a physician, philanthro-
pist, motivational speaker, author and advocate
for efforts to improve the life of America's
youth. A committed Christian, Dr. Carson
places the values of God and family above all
other considerations in his life. He turns for
guidance to the word of God, and to his family
and church community for strength and the
moral compass to keep steady in his endeavors
and at peace.
Every morning he reads from the Bible.
The Book of Proverbs is his favorite. He sets
time aside to thank God for wlat he has, and to
ask Him for the strength and wisdom to lead
his day and life as He would choose for him. He
prays before and after every surgery.
"Every time I look into the human brain, I
am astounded by its intricate complexities and
think about how incredibly smart our Creator
is. Whether I am gazing into a baby's head, or
up at the stars at night, I sense God's presence
and the mind-boggling complexities of the uni-
verse so precise one can set one's watch by it,
I see a brilliant and logical God. With every
patient and every surgery, I am struck by the


miracle of life and the mira-
cles possible within it I
have seen children die, in
spite of what we do, and
live, despite the odds
against them. Whatever
the outcome, I see God as
One who wants the best
from us, and asks us
always to trust Him. In the
Carson end, I am just a brain sur-
geon and cannot know
everything. I do believe we need to realize God
is in control. When I leave a surgery and talk
with parents, whatever I have to tell them, I
remember wise King Solomon, who wrote so
many years ago, Trust in the Lord with all
your heart and lean not on your own under-
standing; in all your ways acknowledge Him
and He will make your paths straight.'
(Proverbs 3:5) I find myself refreshed and for-
tified in knowing that I am not alone."
Dr. Carson's favorite Biblical role model is
Joseph. He consistently made the most of
whatever life tossed him. Instead of accepting
the victim role when sold into slavery he deter-
mined to be the best he could be. Later, when
falsely accused and thrown into prison, he still
refused to be a victim. He was always doing
the best at anything life handed him. He rose
to become prime minister of Egypt with the
power to influence many lives in a positive way.
He could have given up. He could have said
"poor me." Instead he became a victor.
Dr. Carson comments: "When I was grow-


ing up, role models others who overcame
adversity in their lives were easier to find in
society. They were in the literature of the day,
and even in the media and the movies. All the
stories I read about orphans, and pioneers, and
those down on their luck who made good,
were inspirational for me, and I just deter-
mined to be one of those who overcame my
obstacles. Today Hollywood just doesn't seem
interested in stories that glorify determination,
integrity, faith and a willingness to work to
beat the odds. This is sad and very trouble-
some."
It is gratifying to learn that Oscar-winner
Cuba Gooding Jr. has been cast to play Dr.
Carson in the new TNT Original movie "Gifted
Hands: The Ben Carson Story." The movie,
based on Carson's inspirational memoir, will
trace his journey from frustrated inner-city kid
to his present position.
I am eagerly looking forward to hearing
this great role model on Oct. 17 and only wish
that my Texan grandson were here to hear him
too.
Pastor Schroder has long been a supporter of
disadvantaged youth in our community. He gave
the invocation at the dedication of the Miller
Boys & Girls Club in October 2006 and also has
served as president of the Board of Directors of
Sutton Place.

gala fundraiser, which also features a cocktail
reception, sit-down dinner and silent auction,

Foundation at 261-8666.

Backdoor annexation
I can fully understand Ron Sapp's disappoint-
ment with Mike Boyle's commentary regarding
Sapp's proposal for island-wide "city" public safe-
ty ("Why island-wide public safety," Sept. 17).
Mike Boyle nailed him right between the eyes
("City takeover would raise costs," Sept. 10).
Ron Sapp's last foray to annex the remainder
of Amelia Island, mainly the affluent south end,
was turned back by 95-plus percent of the voters.


SC1ihted Materia I
















ADabe from CommerclW News Providers


The usual process for a successful non-volun-
tary annexation would commence with the munic-
ipality propostg a plan of services for the area it
is attempting to annex, describing the benefits the
annexed area would receive in exchange for the
additional taxes the residents in the proposed
annexed area would pay.
Fernandina has never done this, simply
because it has nothing to offer the south end,
other than to raise taxes in the south end, there-
by lowering taxes for existing city residents. In
prior years Sapp was candid enough to admit
that was his motivation. Those who have fol-
lowed Ron Sapp's political career over the years
know that he believes the affluent cannot pay
too much in taxes.
Ron Sapp knows thafthe south end will never
vote to be annexed. The satellite sheriffs sta-
tion on the south end provides more than ade-
quate police protection in a low crime area, and
the south end enjoys quick response time from
its county fire-rescue station. So now the back
door approach comes into play..Have the city
gain control of the municipal services, i.e., water,
sewer, police, fire and rescue; set higher rates for
the unincorporated areas, thereby forcing them
into annexation.
Sapp's assertion that the city is already the first
responder in unincorporated areas is simply false.
He decries the fact that when the city does
respond under the "mutual aid agreement" with
the county, it doesn't get reimbursed. Apparently
he does not know the meaning of the word "mutu-
al." If Ron Sapp is truly interested in economies
of scale, why doesn't he advocate for a consoli-
dated county government Think of all the tax sav-
ings to current city residents if the city govern-
ment simply went away with all the bureaucracy
that goes with it.
John M. Everett
Amelia Island
Abortion is murder
I thought I was going to relax Wednesday
night, Sept. 17, but then read the letter to the edi-
tor entitled "Overpopulation." I thought I could
just ignore it, but then re-read it and had to start
typing.
If the letter writer would refer to "The war in
the womb continues" (Sept. 5) written by Peggy
Stanton and review the interview by Rick Warren
of Barack Obama, you will understand Barack
Obama, not Peggy Stanton, said that it was above
his pay grade when asked when does a baby get
human rights.
By doing so, you will understand that those
who take a stand for life are far from "usually old
white men and often religiously addled anti-choice
radicals."
The fact is no one, whether feeble-minded or
not, has the right to take a life. What you refer to


as "terminating a pregnancy" is actually murder
in the womb.
Various remarks throughout your letter prove
that you have not thoroughly studied this subject,
for example, your description of "the anti-choice
cadre of (usually old white men and often reli-
giously addled anti-choice radicals) opposition"
and your discourse that "There are those among
us whom hold deeply as a core belief that every
time a couple has sex and that sexual congress
results in an egg being fertilized that somehow
demands that a baby should be the ultimate
result"
I invite the letter writer to go to 4331 University
Boulevard South in Jacksonville anytime between
Sept 24 to Nov. 2 and speak to those participat-
ing in the 40 Days for life Vigil. By doing so, you
will understand that those who take a stand for life
are not confined to "usually old white men and
often religiously addled anti-choice radicals."
The 40 Days for Life Vigil takes place in over
170 cities in 47 states across the United States. For
additional'information you may view the web-
site, www.40daysforlife.com.
I encourage him to consult various organiza-
tions treating individuals for post-abortive trauma
to acknowledge that innately we all know abortion
is not a choice, it is an.evil. Not only in the United
States, but'all over the world, you will find limit-
less numbers of individuals suffering as a result
of participating in an abortion. Two relevant
sources are Elliot Institute (www.After
Abortion.org) and Rachel's Vineyard Retreat
(www.rachels vineyard.org). It will only take him
a few minutes of reading to realize that the pro-
life people are actually in support of both the
baby and the mother.
A Rachel's Vineyard Retreat for post-abortive
healing in the Jacksonville area is scheduled for
Oct. 3-5. For information on attending, call Donna
Augustine at (904) 221-3232. Other dates and
locations are listed on the above-referenced web-
site.
I would also like to refer him to the subject of
natural family planning for your further knowl-
edge of how to control the number of children
conceived as a result of sexual intercourse. A bit
'of responsibility in life and self-discipline can
save more than a baby being conceived.
The submission of his letter to the editor
reflects a need to inform. However, I encourage
him to research this abortion holocaust. I'm sure,
as in the case of so many others (including Norma
McCorvey who was the "Jane Roe" in the case
entitled Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion in the
United States), he will recant his position by sub-
mitting a second compassionate letter to the edi-
tor on the side of life for the baby, mother and all
involved.

Smurfit-Stone


backs festival


Siiiurfit-Sione Container
Corp. is a major sponsor of
the Amelia Island Book
Festival in Fernandina Beach.
Controller Ed deMaille
presented a check for $3,000
to festival director Terri
Wright and book festival
board member John Carr on
Sept. 11. This is the second
year Smurfit-Stone has been a
corporate sponsor.
The money is used to pro-
mote literacy in the commu-
nity by supporting such pro-
grams as Authors in Schools.
Each school in Nassau
SCounty will receive a visit
from one of the festival's fea-
tured authors. They will talk
about their writing experi-
ences, but their main focus is
to encourage students to be


life-long readers and to per-
sue careers in literature.
"We are so grateful to
Smurfit-Stone for their com-
mitment to literacy and to our
community," said Wright.
'"The book festival would not
be possible without their gen-
erous support and the help of
other sponsors in the busi-
ness community." Presenting
the check with Ed deMaille
was George Langstaff, vice
president and general man-
ager, and Steve Devlin, pro-
duction manager.
The Amelia Island Book
Festival will be held at the St.
Peter's Campus in downtown
Fernandina Beach on Oct. 2-
4. For more information con-
tact info@bookisland.org or

It began with the Hardy Boys


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
A healthy appetite for young
adult novels as a youth spurred
Ron Miller's first efforts as an
author.
'"That's when I developed a
love for the written word,"
Miller explained.
"I would craft short stories
and bad poems and then read
them to my classmates for
amusements," said Miller, who
started writing seriously about
four years ago.
"I used to tell my children
stories when they were little to
amuse them. I would make up
stories about elves, trolls and
fairies. I would also tell them
about my adventures while
growing up. They were fasci-
nated enough to remember (the
stories) and pass them along to
their own children," said Miller.
When grandchildren came
along, Miller started writing the
stories down to share With
them.
"I write what I know and
from my experiences," said the
author of Horse Bones -12 Tales
of Secrets, Ghosts and Legends,


scheduled to
come out
Sept. 20.
The first
two stories in
his book are
about encoun-
ters Miller's
oldest daugh-
ter had as a lit-
tle girl at her grandparents'
home in Lake City.
Four stories deal with
Miller's childhood adventures
with friends in the woods and
swamps of Columbia and
Suwannee County. The other
six are based on local legends
and folklore Miller heard from
a friend's grandparents and
other adults.
Illustrations for Horse Bones
were done by local artist Paul
Massing.
"Paul is one of the most
gifted people I know," said
Miller,
"I tend to be very descrip-
tive and he captured the stories
perfectly. His illustrations alone
are stories without words."
Employed at Smurfit-Stone
for 36 years, Miller credits his
friend and critique partner, Terri


Wright, with beginning his
involvement with the Amelia
Island Book Festival. A partici-
pant since 2005, this year Miller
was asked to join the board of
directors in addition to chairing
the publicity committee.
"I believe in its concept in
bringing literacy to the com-
munity," said Miller of the book
festival, "especially children.
The Authors in Schools pro:
gram has been highly success-
ful i4 instilling'in young people
the value of reading. Some, as a
result, have pursued an educa-
tion in English and journalism."
Miller advises anyone head-
ed for a writing career to be an
avid reader, especially in the
genre in which they wish to
write.
"Learn your craft, go to
school, take workshops, enter
contests, join a critique group
and practice discipline. Most of
all, don't make excuses, just sit
down and write."
Miller shares his Fernandina
home with his wife, Linda. The
couple has 10 children between
them, ranging in age from 24
to 40, and 18 grandchildren.

Brainard, Peter Johnson,
Harvey Lewis, Steve Nicklas,

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24.2008 NEWS News-Leader


'Zero tolerance' for


underage
The Fernandina Beach
Police Department and the
Nassau Alcohol Crime and
Drug Abatement Coalition
(NACDAC) have announced
a cooperative program de-
signed to provide for increased
enforcement, of juvenile crimes
involving alcohol within the
city of Fernandina Beach.
NACDAC was recently
awarded state funds to imple-
ment a proactive enforcement
strategy over the next 12
months to combat and reduce
underage alcohol use. The
Fernandina, Beach Police
Department will be tasked
with specific law enforcement
activities related to underage
drinking.
These funds will be used
to increase manpower on des-
ignated periods throughout
the next fiscal year. Officers
assigned to this program will
be concentrating on areas in
the city that have traditionally
warranted concern about state
law violations involving juve-
niles. These special program
officers will utilize several
police tactics to aggressively
enforce a zero tolerance
approach to underage alcohol


drinking
use, house party and vehicle
violations.
Officers will also be
focused on points of sale, con-
ducting compliance checks at
area vendors, bars and restau-
rants, as well as conducting
"last drink" surveys of minors.
Officers will continue to pro-
vide merchant education and
training to prevent easy retail
access of alcohol and tobacco
products to underage persons.
Susan Woodford, NACDAC
chair, said, "We are thrilled to
be working with the Fernan-
dina Beach Police Department
in their continued efforts to
impact underage drinking in
our community. Funding from
our Substance Abuse Re-
sponse Guide (SARG) contract
will help Fernandina Beach
Police officers concentrate on
compliance checks at retail
stores to make sure that our
youth are not purchasing alco-
hol.
"It will also help to ensure
that there will be specialized
focus throughout our neigh-
borhoods at critical times. We
strongly support the concept
of 'zero tolerance' for under-
age drinking."

Woman charged with

assault after fracas

with school bus driver


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A 26-year-old O'Neal woman
was arrested Thursday after-
noon after allegedly assaulting a
school bus driver.
The'driver, 41-year-old Diane
Hall, was treated for her injuries
at Baptist Medical Center
Nassau.
Police arrested Kylinda
Monique Sharper of 96216
O'Neal-Scott Road for battery
on a school employee.
According to the report,
Sharper said she was injured in
the altercation as well but police
were unable to find any visible
injuries on her.
Sharper reportedly told
police she confronted Hall over
profane language she was told
the bus driver had used toward
a relative of hers who rides the
bus after the child wet his pants.
Sharper said she hit Hall
after Hall tried to push her off
the bus.
Several children on the bus
were delayed in reaching their
bus stops after school due to the
altercation, and police said the
children were "upset and visi-


bly shaken" after witnessing the
incident
It reportedly took two
women to pull Sharper away
from Hall. Hall said Sharper was
punching her in the face and
pulling her hair.
Sharper told police she was
told by someone that Hall
yelled at and used profanelan-
guage toward the child she
knew on the bus, and she
said she climbed onto the bus
as the child was getting off the
bus.
According to the report, Hall
attempted to hit her with a
closed fist and tried to push her
off the bus. When police asked
to see her injuries, she could
not show any and reportedly
"became agitated and belliger-
ent" toward police.
Sharper was arrested and
reportedly screamed as she was
handcuffed and a large, "hos-
tile" crowd gathered, which pr6-
vented police from questioning
the juvenile witnesses who had
been riding the bus.
Sharper is being held at the
Nassau County Jail in lieu of
$25,002 bond.

Safety tip:

Share the

roadway
While you may be alone in
your car, you're never alone
on the road. Motorists share
the road with a wide array of
-vehicles cars, bicycles, vans,
commercial vehicles, motor-
cycles, SUV's, pickup trucks,
semi-trucks and buses.
Motorists also share the road
with a.legion of fellow travel-
ers with a wide range of driv-
ing skills, experiences, per-
sonalities, habits and
idiosyncrasies.
Regardless of their mode
of transportation on any given
day, some forgot their glasses
and can't see well, others had
too many drinks at the bar
,and are riding under the influ-
ence, others were up study-
ing all night before they got
behind the wheel.
You just never know what
the other person is going
through or dealing with.
Maybe the person next to you
just lost their job or the one in
front of you had an argument
with their spouse. The teen
driver in the car on your right
has been driving for only two
weeks, while the 85-year-old
behind you has been driving
for 70 years.
All of these people are out
there on the road whether
they're traveling op four
wheels or 16, two wheels or
two feet Their ability to walk,
bike, ride or drive safely is
affected by numerous factors,
physical and emotional.
Take a closer look at some
of your roadway companions:
Pedestrians are the high-
way users most at risk in traf-
fic. While in many cases, the
pedestrian is found to be at
fault in the event of a crash,
there is an important respon-
sibility for drivers to be vigi-
lant particularly in residential
or commercial areas. Pedes-
trians should use.sidewalks
and cross at intersections. In
the event there is no sidewalk
available, pedestrians should
walk facing traffic.
Bicyclists, like pedestri-
ans, are often difficult to
notice in traffic and have little
protection from a traffic crash.
When driving a car, be sure to
check, "blind spots" before.
you plaeLparkz open_3 .
driver-'side door. or leave a
curb. While overtaking a bicy-
cle, a vehicle must pass at a
safe distance .of not less than
three feet Bicyclists must also
obey the rules of the road
(such, as stopping for stop
signs and traffic lights), just as
vehicle drivers do. Bicyclists
must ride with traffic as close
as practicable to the right-
hand curb or edge of the road-
way. Bicyclists on sidewalks
must yield the right-of-way to
pedestrians.
Motorcyclists ride the
smallest motorized vehicles
on the road. Unfortunately,
they provide virtually no pro-
tection in a crash, giving them
a great element of risk. Wear
a helmet for protection and
bright-colored clothing for
better visibility. Safe riding
takes balance, coordination
and good judgment.
Large truck drivers are
often involved in crashes that
could be avoided by other
motorists being aware of blind
spots and staying out of them.
Never ride in someone's blind
spot or allow them to ride in
yours. Don't stop suddenly in
front of a large truck because
it takes more distance for
them to stop. Truck drivers
should be aware that their
vehicle is larger and heavier
than others and can cause
more damage and injury in
the event of a crash. Drive
accordingly by not speeding
or tailgating. Approach inter-
sections with caution.
Older Drivers -may face
challenges brought about by
losses in vision, hearing, atten-
tiveness, decision-making abil-
ity, or reaction time. Frequent-
ly reported mistakes by older
drivers include inattention,
failure to drive in the proper
lane, failure to signal or to
observe "Stop" signs and sig-
nals and unreasonably slow
driving on busy highways. Be


aware that prescription med-
ication may also affect driv-
ing ability.
Teen drivers' under-
standing and judgment may
not be as well developed as
an experienced driver's. More
than any other age group,
teen drivers are likely to be
more distracted by music,
friends, cell-phone, text-mes-
saging, eating, and drinking in
their vehicle. They are also
more likely to engage in dan-
gerous behaviors like speed-
ing, weaving and frequent
lane changing. Crash-rates for
teen drivers are the highest of
any other age group.

More good news than bad in the wild


Ever the Pollyanna, I like to
look at the bright side of
things, not dwell on the dark-
ness. Here in Nassau County
there are lots of good natural
things all around us, despite a
few man-induced setbacks. A
number of issues have sur-
faced over the past months in
my columns, and it's time now
to update you folks with all the
good news that counters the
bad.
Die-off of redbay trees
and palamedes butterflies
The bad news as reported
in Wild Ways last month (Aug.
6) is that due to an invasion of
an exotic ambrosia beetle, our
beautiful redbay trees around
the county are all dying.
Along with their death comes
the possibility of extinction of
one of our now most common
butterflies, the palamedes
swallowtail butterfly.
The good news is this: At
Fort Clinch State Park, the
home to many dying redbay
trees, with their brown leaves
hanging lifeless, nature's sur-
vival strategy is visibly under-
way. Carl Watson, park volun-
teer naturalist, has shown me


the good
news along
the Willow
Pond trail.
Many of
these redbay
trees are
sprouting
back, green
and fresh
WILD and alive,
WAYS from the
base of the
trunk. These
Pat trees may
Foster- Turley not be totally
dead after
all! Hope still reigns that the
butterflies, too, will survive'
this outbreak, and .still find
live leaves for their caterpillars
to feed on in the years to
come! Thanks, Carl for this'
good news! -
Spoonbills
The bad news, for the peo-
ple out at Oyster Bay, is that
the large group of roseate
spoonbills disappeared from
their pond a couple of months
after they were highlighted in
Wild Ways (June 25).
According to Lou Goldman,
once our summer rains began


in earnest, the pond they for-
aged in got too deep for them,
and they moved on.
But there's good news
here, too. From late summer
on, spoonbills were again reg-
ular visitors to the Egans
Creek Greenway near Atlantic
Avenue. The birds are still
there at this writing, but
before long they will leave this
area too, and head further
south for the winter. At the
end of the summer, spoonbills
are paler in color, having molt-
ed from their bright breeding
plumage, but just maybe these
are the very same birds seen
earlier in the 'season in all
their post-breeding finery over
at Oyster Bay.
Musical bird roosts
It's been bad news for
Marsh Lakes residents now
that the trees at their entrance
have been cut down for a new
strip mall. For years these
trees have hosted a myriad of
egrets, herons, ibis and wood
storks, flying in to roost for
the night and flying off to for-
age at dawn (Jan. 9). Now all
that remains of this roost are a
few trees beside the pond, a ,

Pirates get win No. 2, beat Baldwin 3


BETH JONES
News-Leader
Tahj Kimble is a scoring machine.
The Pirates are just three games into
the regular season and the junior run-
ning back now has eight touchdowns
to his credit. He scored four Friday
night in Fernandina Beach's 35-2 win
over the host Baldwin Indians.
Kimble had 18 carries for 223 rush-
ing yards and also had four recep-
tions for 57 yards. He scored three,
times on the ground and one in the air.
"He's stepping up big," said Ed
"Puggy" Brown, Fernandina Beach
High School head football coach.
Max Shaw's opening kickoff result-
ed in a touchback, one of four on the,
night for the Pirates' senior kicker
and punter. Baldwin started at its own
20-yard line and didn't make it past its
own 31-yard line before the host was
forced to punt.
On the first play from scrimmage,
Kimble darted 18 yards to put the
Pirates in Baldwin territory. Five plays
later he was in the end zone, scoring
on a 25-yard run. Shaw kicked the
PAT to put Fernandina up 7-0 with
6:03 left in the first quarter.


Thd Pirate defense held again,
forcing tle Indians to punt on their
second possession of the night. But
Baldwin returned the favor and the
Pirates had to punt the ball. A Baldwin
fumble on the first play.from scrim-
mage was recovered by Pirate junior
Carlos Holcey.
Three plays later, Kimble returned
to the end zone, scoring on a 46-yard
run. Shaw provided the extra, point
and the Pirates led 14-0 with 8:18 left
in the second quarter.
On their next drive, the Pirates
had to settle for a field goal, but
Shaw's 30-yard attempt failed when a
Baldwin player blocked the kick. *
Backed up again on their own two-
yard line, the Indians were once again
forced to punt. This time, Pirate sen-
ior Domonic Jones blocked the kick
and Holcey recovered it in the end
zone for another FBHS touchdown.
Shaw-'s PAT was good. The.Pirates
led 21-0 at halftime.
Baldwin's only points came in the
third quarter when Kimble was tack-
led in the end zone for a safety.
A Baldwin fumble on the ensiling
kickoff was recovered by Pirate sen-
ior Darius Pollard and, seven plays


later, Kimble had his third touchdown
of the night after a short three-yard
run into the end zone. Shaw kicked
the PAT and the Pirates rolled to a 28-
2 advantage.
With 6:22 left in the game, Kimble
reeled in a pass from senior quarter-
back Emory Wingard for a 30-yard
TD reception. Shaw's kick cleared
the uprights to put FBHS up 35-2.
Tai Alford's interception killed
Baldwin's final drive in the waning
minutes of the game. Despite a cast on
his arm, it was Alford's second pick of
the night. He also recovered a fumble
and had two tackles.
"I think we still came out flat,"
Brown said. "We played a decent
game but not a good one. We still see
a lot of things we need to work on."
Wingard was 11-of-14 for 172 pass-
ing yards and rushed twice for anoth-
er 12 yards. Jones caught four passes
for 41 yardsTylerSomorahad two for

r


Fisher's decision to sit


Ponder may backfire


A s if a third straight loss to
Wake Forest wasn't bad
enough, the decision by
SU offensive coordinator
Jimbo Fisher to replace starting
QB Christian Ponder with
D'Vontrey Richardson for the sec-
ond half of the 'Noles 12-3 loss to
the Demon Deacons Saturday
night could have devastating after-
effects. Because if Ponder wasn't
already gun shy after a terrible first
half, Fisher's quick hook might
have the young man second guess-
ing himself for the rest of the sea-
son, which could spell doom for an
FSU offense that has been reeling
since Chris "Old Man" Weinke was
under center.
To be fair, Fisher's decision to
insert the backup would have been
referred to as genius had
Richardson come in and won the
game for the Seminoles. The com-
parisons of Richardson to former
Heisman winning FSU QB Chaflie
Ward would have taken center
stage and Ponder would have taken
a backseat. Instead, Fisher is left
with two sophomore quarterbacks
who combined for five intercep-
tions and are probably questioning
how good they really are.
The season is far from over for
the 'Noles, who have obviously
improved personnel-wise over what
we've seen in Tallahassee the last
two years. And.the good news is
the FSU defense just keeps on
keeping on, seemingly always giv-
ing the Seminoles a chance.
With that said, it's time for
Fisher and company to pick a quar-
terback and coach him through the
peaks and valleys of the season. It's
time to shed the "what have you
done for me lately" mentality. With
either Ponder or Richardson under
center, the Seminoles have a young
quarterback full of potential. But if
the starter has to always look over
his shoulder, that potential might'
never be truly realized ...
University of Florida football
fans concerned with what appears
to be vanilla play calling on offense


should just sit
tight. Because
2008 is starting to
look eerily similar
to 2006, when the
Gators relied on a
staunch defense
.and great special
teams play to cap-
ture the school's
second football
SPORTS national champi-
onship.
TALK While it's mad-
dening at times to
JOHN L. hear about all the
CRAWFORD offensive talent
... Florida has avail-
able and then not
see it manifested on game day, the
bottom line is that Urban Meyer
and'company are winning and win-
ning relatively easily. Jetting into
Knoxville and strolling out with a
30-6 win over the Tennessee
Volunteers without really breaking
a sweat on offense has its advan-
tages. Because the less offensive
coordinator Dan Mullen has to
reveal beforethat ever-important
game on Nov. 1, the better.
The flip side is that keeping all
those playmakers on the shelf
might produce a little rust. But if
Florida's defense and special teams
come to play every week like they
did Saturday in Knoxville, it might
not matter ...
Thank goodness for deflections.
Sure, Josh Scobee's 51-yard field
goal with four seconds remaining
was huge, but the Jacksonville
Jaguars can thank little-used RB
Montel Owens, who was the recipi-
ent of a prayer deflection with 25
seconds to go, for their road win
over Indianapolis Colts Sunday.
You know the saying: It's better to
be lucky than good. That stroke of
fortune could be the savior of a sea-
son that appeared in limbo before
Sunday.

BETH JONES
News-leader
Yulee High School sophomore
Jeremy Deberry scored both touch-
downs for the Hornets Friday in their
14-6 victory over the host Matanzas
High Pirates. Deberry finished the
night with 102 rushing yards.
It was the first win of the season for
Yulee (1-1) and the first victory for
first-year head coach Bobby Ramsay.
"It was my first win, but most
important, it was great for the kids

I a trio of a win.

ay Friday at played with the lead in the fourth quar-
ter. Our running game 'was very
strong, especially late in the game."
,5 The Hornet defense forced five
turnovers and was stingy, allowing
Matanzas just 122 yards of offense
(68 rushing).
"Against a wing-T offense that is
very good," Ramsay said. "My hope is
that this will help build our confidence
as we head into district play. We defi-
nitely need to do a better job in the red'
zone. We are still committing too many
penalties and not scoring inside the 20.
We probably left 14-21 points out there.
"But we are improving and moving
the football, so that is very encourag-
ing. We had a 99-yard touchdown
drive."
Junior Jonathan Knauss had 68
yards rushing' and senior Kentral

Gibson steers team to title


The weather was good but
the turnout for the Wednes-

45 players took part last
week. Three players tied for
individual honors at plus 7.
Price Poole hadathe round of
the day with a one-under-par
72 while Lind Swenson had
an 83 and Terry Lacoss an 81.
The all-plus team of Larry
Luett (78, plus 4), Tony Lopez
(79, plus 4), Jack Harrison
(86, plus 3) and Ron

3) and Heyde Peterson (80,
plus 3) ran away from the

Croake's plus 5, aided by,

"You should go bass fish-
ing while you are here in
Vermont," golf professional
Andrew Pfister said. "I have a
friend that does real well for
LakeChamplain largemouth
and smallmouth bass. Why
don't we give him a call?"
Little did I realize I would
be signing up for a bass fish-
ing trip of a lifetime while
reserving a
tee time at
one of north-
east king-
dom's pre-
mier golf
courses.

was certain-
OUTDOORS ly a chal-
.... lenge for any
Florida
Terry Lacoss golfer.
As it turned out, two days
later I was motoring from a
sandy beach boat launch to a
nearby massive grass-laden
lily pad flat with Andrew
Pfister and his fishing pal,
Keith Murray.
It was 4 p.m. and a picture-
perfect, latp.fYmgont summer
,Adernoon }f.,Jlewin l and
mild weather conditions. "
Nearby trees were just begin-
ning to turn color, adding
excitement to my first bass
fishing trip on Lake
Champlain in more than five
decades. While growing up in
Burlington, Vt., I had fished
Lake Champlain on several
occasions.
Through the years, Lake
Champlain has grown in pop-
ularity for both its large-
mouth and smallmouth bass
fishing. During the past five
bass fishing seasons, profes-
sional bass anglers have
voted Lake Champlain their
favorite bass lake. Last
spring, bass pro Tim Horton
caught a limit of largemouth
bass during his first 30 min-
utes of bass fishing on Lake
Champlain. Many of Horton's
bass weighed between 4-5
pounds and he won the event.
All of this was running
through my mind as Murray
pulled up onto a nearby
weedbed and cut off his out-
board motor.
"Man, we didn't have to
run too far," I said. "I can still
see the sandy beach where
we launched your bass boat"
"You know what? Bass
fishing is excellent anywhere
on Lake Champlain," Murray
said. "You fish the deep water
reefs and you are likely to
catch smallmouth bass, while


Keith Murray swings a five-pound Lake Champlain bass into his Ranger bass boat. The

the largemouth bass occupy
the shallow weedbeds and are
easier to catch. In fact, this
summer we have had a lot of
rain, and the high water in
Lake Champlain has pro-
duced some excellent shallow
water bass fishing."
With the bass boat's elec-
tric motor quietly navigating
our fishing party slowly along
the lily pad weedbed, both
Murray and Pfister began
working plastic frogs over the
massive shallow flat and, with-
in 10 minutes from departing
the nearby boat ramp, a large
fish blew up on Murray's plas-
tic frog and missed the large
weedless hook.
Murray made sure-the


hook was still rigged properly
and then made a repeat cast
back to the same area of the
lily pads. This time a similar
strike produced a long, skin-
ny pickerel that literally
chewed up Murray's plastic
frog, which needed replacing..
Three casts later, a much
larger fish blew up on Mur-
ray's frog imitation. Murray
showed plenty of bass savvy
and patiently reeled in his
slack fishing line and then set
the hook.
The next thing I knew,
Murray was swinging a five-
pound largemouth bass onto
the deck of his Ranger bass
boat. For the neKt three hours

caught and released some 15
largemouth bass from that
same shallow water lily pad
field. We had also motored
out to a deep-water reef for
smallmouth bass until an
evening sailing regatta got
under way.
Just before sunset, Pfister
decided to flip a plastic craw-
fish into heavy weeds and,
after a few minutes of fishing,
had hooked some five large-
mouth weighing to three
pounds. By far, the best
action had come while steadi-
ly reeling a Stanley "Ribbit"
frog in the white color pattern
over the large bonnets of lily
pads. The strikes came hard
and with loud smacks, mak-
ing this style of bass angling,
extremely heart stopping.
Although we were fishing
a deep Vermont lake, fishing
the shallow lily pad field
made me feel at times that I
was actually fishing a weed-
filled Florida Lake.
"The month of May finds.
some of the best bass fishing
on Lake Champlain," Murray
said. "During early May, both
smallmouth and largemouth
bass move onto the shallow
flats to spawn. It's nothing to
enjoy catching over 50 bass
during a morning of bass fish-
ing."
We were actually fishing
an area of Lake Champlain
called the "Sandbar," which
offers nearby camping, pic-
nicking and a boat launch.
Kayak, canoe and small
boaters had perfect access to
these very same bass waters
we fished.
Next fall when I visit my
mother, I am bringing my
Triton bass boat and leaving
my golf clubs at home.

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


To be two at the zoo is adventure at its finest


Dear Eleanor
How I love to visit you, my first
granddaughter. You are two years
old and so grown up. We had three
whole days together. We sent Mom
and Dad off for a weekend and got
to do whatever we wanted. Wouldn't
you know it one of our days was all
about rain? I promised we would go
on a 'venture as soon as it stopped.
The morning stretched on and on
and you kept rushing to the big
glass door and sang "Rain, rain go
away...." but it didn't.
We finally decided we would go
out to lunch and found ourselves sit-
ting at a grown-up restaurant with
crisp white table cloths and lots of
glasses and silverware. We ordered
a plate of antipasto and divided all
the goodies on the big plate. You
insisted on eating all the pepperoni
and no tomatoes. We shared the
wonderful cheeses. The waiters
were charmed by your good man-


ners and you were
in awe of all the
attention.
All your good
singing must have
t ^worked. The rain
\ did go away. The
next morning was
|g bright, clear and
sunny, so we decid-
FROM ed to go to the zoo.
THE We went to the
PORCH Washington
National Zoo. It is a
wonderful old zoo
Dickie founded by the
Anderson Smithsonian in
1889. You know
your animals very well, so I knew
We would be successful finding and
identifying animals.
The day-long rain the day before
had rinsed everything clean and
made it fresh and green. Diaper bag
packed, and you secured in your car


seat, we set off on a crystal clear and
sunny day. We got there early. Good
thing, we agreed, the parking lots
were filling up. The zoo is spread
out over a hilly tree-covered park
just outside the nation's capital.
Our adventures began. We
planned our animals ahead of time.
Elephants for sure and tigers and
lions and we knew we wanted to see
the pandas. As luck would have it,
the giant pandas were the very first
exhibit. We hoped they were not
sleeping, which they do a lot of the
time. We caught them eating break-
fast. Great long stalks of green bam-
boo disappeared as they devoured
their favorite food. They looked like
the biggest teddy bears we had ever
seen. -
You are quite the brave girl and
determined to do a lot of things
"myself," but did move a little closer
to your Nana when we went into the
elephant house. One of the bigger


elephants was moving around his
enclosure, making snorting noises
and stopping to stick his long hairy
trunk out through the bars. Your
eyes got big and your little feet went
into reverse. Time to leave the ele-
phants.
A big bold tiger strutted all *
around his habitat we agreed he
was looking for someone who would
feed him. The wide expanse of water
between the tigers and us was reas-
suring.
Next, the lions. They were fast
asleep and not much fun at all. You
never know at the zoo who you will
find awake, asleep or wanting to play
and perform.
Monkeys a&i always fun and
remind us of Clrious George, a
story book favorite. We found all
kinds of monkeys swinging around
their cages and looking at us won-
dering what we thought was so
interesting. Some of the monkeys
*5


scared you and you made that really
serious face you make when you are
not sure about things.
You were determined to
walk so Nana pushed the stroller
as we meandered through the
park discovering more and more
animals that you could identify.
When it was time to go we found
our car and I strapped you in.
Soon your little blonde head was
slumped to the side and you were
fast asleep.
That night at story time we found
a Curious George book and talked
about the monkeys we had seen that
day.
Oh, to be two and go to the zoo.
Thanks for sharing.
Love, Nana

Wa ihnts at ARC are excited:aboutthe chance to '
bowl and participate in other sports, thanks to the
Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll drive that provided a
Wii system and big screen, high definition WV. Director
Fay Johnson is pleased that the people waiting their
turn watch and cheer for the person doing the bowling.
When someone makes a spare or a strike there are
smiles all around. The Amelia Island Care Center
received a new hospital bed.
Johnson believes the Wii system is making a big dif-
ference in the lives of ARC clients. They are becoming
more physically active and there is a sense of team

Teencollection
The Fernandina Beach branch library Teen Advisory Board pro-
vided guidance for how to spend grant funds of $4,000 from the
Rayonier Foundation. Browsing through the new arrivals for the teen
collection are Abby Ford, with mother Lisa Ford, Kaysie Norton and
Jordyn Moore.
Due to a 26 percent reduction in the book budget, the Friends of
the Library, Fernandina Beach acknowledged that the young adult
collection foages 13 to 18 would slip further behind without help.
They submitted two requests and received $4,000 from the Rayonier
Foundation to help address the dilemma.

love to love on people. I will
just follow you wherever you
go. I get along OK with other
dogs. However, I tend to go to
.people more than other dogs!
I am a very well behaved,
neutered, Aussie cattle dog

am housebroken, too. Won't

what a great companion I can
be? I need someone to love
