her as a way to help other women take
a proactive approach to their health.

Baptist offers free prostate cancer tests
Prostate cancer is the most commonly
diagnosed type of cancer among
American men. One in six men will get
prostate cancer in his lifetime.
Fortunately, prostate cancer is treatable
and curable if caught in its early stages.
Unfortunately, it is often symptomless
until it is in its advanced state.
"Often, prostate cancer presents with
little or no symptoms, and when it does,
symptoms are subtle," said Connie Lewis,
RN., Baptist Cancer Institute's Center for
Prostate Care coordinator, in a press
release. "That's why screening is so
important for men, especially those who
are over age 45. Many times, prostate
cancer is diagnosed during routine
screening. The earlier it is diagnosed, the
greater the chance for cure."
To fight this disease, Baptist Health is
once again offering free prostate cancer
increase awareness of
this disease and to
and early detection.
The first screening
will be held at Baptist
Tuesday from 3-7 p.m., and at Baptist
Medical Center South on Oct. 21 from 3-7
Reservations are required at (904)
202-CARE (2273). The screening will
include a prostate-specific antigen (PSA)
blood test and a digital rectal exam per-
formed by urologists, medical oncolo-
gists, radiation oncologists and primary
care physicians associated with Baptist
"Every year, we see patients at our
screening who are ultimately diagnosed
with prostate cancer and were previously
unaware," says Lewis. "That's why we
offer this free service year after year for
Last year, Baptist Cancer Institute and
Baptist South screened 283 men. Of
those, 43 men were sent for further test-.
ing due to suspicious results. Since begin-
ning of the screenings in 2002, Baptist
has screened almost 1,157 men, with an
average 15.9 percent receiving abnormal
results and being referred for further
testing. This year, Baptist expects to
screen 200.men at Baptist Cancer
Institute and 100 men at Baptist South,
bringing the total of screenings since
2002 to nearly 1,500.

Environmental said its contract
would be activated when the
city is "overwhelmed" after a

"Pre-event disaster recov-

have become more popular
with local governments
because they allow for a "more

Berkhimer said after the

Tropical Storm Fay, said Sapp,
was that the city has had a pri-

to that, the city had its own

did not have to rely on outside
help in the event of a storm.

FRIDAY, October 10.2008 NEWS News-Leader
An exciting ride for L
III Spinks, the West
Nassau correspondent of the
News-Leader, makes sure her
camera is with her at all times,
"just in case something pic-
ture-worthy comes up in my
travels," she said.
In fact, when Hilliard was
under a tornado warning last
year and a local television sta-
tion reported that a tornado
was spotted on radar about a
block from her home, she
took her purse', insurance
papers and, of course, her
camera to the bathtub with
her to ride out the storm.
Fortunately there was no
damage to her home, but if a
tornado had lifted the roof,
you can bet Li would have
gotten a photo of the sky. And
the News-Leader would have
published it, as the newspaper
has done so many weeks over
the past 13 years, publishing
Lil's stories and photos on the
front-page or the West Side
page in the Friday edition.
But now, after 23 years of
working for the News-Leader
and/or the Nassau County
Record, Lli Spinks is moving
on to something "that won't
mean as much legwork."
She will still wield her cam-
era; in fact, she wants to do
more photography. And, she
might even write a book, jour-
nal or some other record of
her newspapering life, but that
will be in the future.
But, at 68, with nerve dam-
age resulting from an accident
while cleaning her home 2
years ago that has hampered
her ability to do legwork, Li
will undertake less physically
demanding tasks. She no
longer will provide regular
reports or photos to the News-
"For quite a while now, I've
felt that I was letting the News-
Leader down, not to mention
our readers, by not being able,
to cover all the events I used
to write about," Lil said.
"Editor Michael Parnell and
Assistant Editor Sian Perry
have been great about it, and
when I was unable to keep up
the pace I used to do, Michael
would just say, 'Just give us
what you can.' It's been quite
an exciting ride that has lasted
23 wonderful years of writing
hard news aqd feature stories.
I want to an assau .,,
County for enriching my lfe
for so long."
"I know Ill be doing more
photography," LU said..
"Photography is what got me
into this business to start
with. You know, the darkroom
thing," where it all began at
the Nassau County Record.
Reception for Ul
The News-Leader and Nassau
County Record will host a recep-
tion for UI Spinks, who is "retir-
ing" after 23 years of writing and
photographing for the newspa-
pers, from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday,
Nov. 5 at the Record office,
617317 Brandies Ave., Callahan.
The public is invited.
Make it a great day!'
LIL SPINKS. WEST NASSAU CORRESPONDENT
Lil was no stranger to the
newspaper business; it's in her
blood with longtime family
connections to the New York
After Lil got a job develop-
ing photographs in the dark-
room of the Nassau County
Record in 1986, she quickly
moved on to shooting photo-
graphs and writing stories.
Who knew then she would

"' feel like I'm ending an
era," she said. "I've loved the
writing, the photography and
(until her ailing leg) I've loved
the legwork associated with
interviewing people for the
stories I've written too.
"I've always loved doing

could go on and on. I
loved doing anything that
would get me out with lots of
And she brought those
people to her readers in sto-
ries and photos that captured
the rural and small-town val-
ues of the West Side.
L1 didn't make a lot of
money reporters and corre-
spondents never do "but I
always made enough to pay
for my gas, buy our groceries
and a few other extras too,"
Best of all, reporters have-
entr6e to events and people
that others don't.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed
meeting all the wonderful peo-
ple that I have over he year,
and that was the most impor-
tant part of it to me. It took me
to people," Il said.
And people took to Lil, who
now has recorded generations
of families making their mark
in school, at the county fair
and elsewhere in West
Nassau, in addition to provid-
ing hard news copy.
Whatever her trials and
tribulations, Lil remained
upbeat through it all.
She ended each of her e-
mails to this newspaper office
by saying, "Make it a great
Any day that one heard

be sure she will still give plen-

United States in 2006, result-
ing in 2,580 civilian deaths,
12,500 civilian injuries and
$6.8 billion in damage.
Working smoke alarms and
fire escape planning and prac-
tice are integral to keeping our
families safe, but there is
another element that you may
want to add to your safety sys-
tem home fire sprinklers. In
less time than it typically takes
the fire department to arrive
on the scene, properly instal-
led sprinklers can contain and
even extinguish a home fire.
That not only reduces proper-
ty damage, it saves lives.
Because fire sprinkler sys-
tems react so quickly, they can
dramatically reduce the heat,
flames and smoke produced in
a fire. Fire sprinklers have
been around for more than a
century, protecting commer-
cial and industrial properties

tals and high-
Cooper is that the
gy that protects these build-
ings is also available for
homes, where 80 percent of .
deaths occur. When sprinklers
are present, the chances of
dying in a fire are reduced by
more than one-half and the
average property loss per fire
is cut by one-third to two-
thirds, compared to where
sprinklers are not present
Sprinklers can be installed
by specially trained contrac-
tors. The best time to install
sprinklers is when you are
building a new home or
remodeling. Nationally, instal-
ling sprinklers adds between
1-1.5 percent to the total cost
of construction. Installing
known as "retrofitting," gener-
ally costs more and the cost
depends on the existing struc-
ture. Many insurance compa-
nies offer discounts for home-
owners with sprinkler
systems, making comparison

many stubborn misconcep-

owners reluctant to install
sprinklers in theirlhomes.
These are the facts:
It is extremely rare for
sprinklers to operate acciden-

damage will be considerably
less from unwanted sprinkler
discharges than from other
Cigar smoke and burned
toast cannot cause a sprinkler
to operate. Only the high tem-
perature that results from a
fire will activate the sprinkler.
All the sprinklers do not
activate at once. This may be
common in movies and TV
shows, but it is just not true
for residential fire sprinkler
systems. Only the sprinkler
closest to the fire activates.
Ninety percent of the time,
one sprinkler contains the fire.

you added protection from fire
and peace of mind. Ask your

The old man lights up the-midway
A bout this time every year, I get a crav-
ing for county fairs. Now, county fairs
and regular fairs are as different as
grits and Cream of Wheat. County
fairs are what came to town every fall when I
was a kid. Blended in with the hullabaloo of
the midway and the sticky sweet smell of cot-
ton candy was the cloying odor of sooey, pig,
and the bleating, braying and mooing of the
livestock exhibits. County fairs have livestock
and livestock shows. A fair without livestock is
like Disneyworld without Pirates of the
So when the annual county fair urge hit me
last fall, I started thinking about the one
between Callahan and Hilliard. I mentioned in
a big-eyed hopeful sort of way how I sure
would like to go to a county fair again before I
got too old. My wife and sons and their ladies
took the bait. Sounds like lots of fun, they
declared in unison. We could make a family
night of it. Which was what I had intended all
along, but I figured it was easier for me to sell
it that way than me telling them, "Hey, y'all.
Why don't we all go to the county fair up
between Callahan and Hilliard next Friday
The more we talked about it, the more
excited everyone got. The boys talked smack
about what they'd do to each other with the
bumper cars and the strong man contest and
the girls and my wife talked about arts and
crafts exhibits while salivating to visions of
funnel cake drizzled with powdered sugar. By
the time fair night rolled around, they were in

Joe Palmer piled out of the car before I
could even stop. The happy-
go-lucky sound of the midway rang out to
greet us as we paid for our tickets. Inside was
a stew of familiar aromas that made my mouth
water and my heartache for childhood.
We started with something to eat and then
walked around the midway and caught a cou-
ple of rides and played a few of the numerous
games of chance. Meanwhile, the boys argued
vociferously about the strong man contest.
And then we saw it, way down toward the end
of the midway lit up like Graceland on Elvis'
birthday the.tall scoreboard with the bell on
top and the gigantic sledgehammer that sepa-
rates the got it from the wish I had it.
A small crowd gathered as my sons flexed
and preened and bragged. Insults and jibes
were traded. Masculinity and testosterone lev-
els were called into question. And when the
big moment came to put the pennies where
the piehole is, both of them poohed the
scrootch. No bells.-No teddy bears. Only whin-
ers and complaints that the game was rigged.
"Hand me that hammer," I said, stepping up.

Why, the tiger of course. So far, we've lost the
Bali, Javan and Caspian tigers. And now, as of this
year, we have lost the'South Chinese tiger. Now,
a little fewer than 70 cats remain in zoos around
Asia, but these don't count when it comes to
determining whether the animal is extinct or
not It is possible that a few South Chinese remain
in the wild, but their numbers will never be a
viable source of repopulation for the sub-species
in the future.
The South Chinese tiger was the-only tiger
sub-species to live wholly within the borders of
China. It is believed that the South Chinese tiger
is the original form-from which all other sub-
species developed. Tigers then spread through-
out the forests of Asia, adapting to local condi-
tions. In support of this theory is the South
Chinese tiger's more primitive skull form, which
includes closer-set eyes than other sub-species
and a shortened cranium.
During the reign of Chairman Mao Tse-Tung,
it was declared that the South Chinese tiger was
a pest, therefore ordered to be destroyed. This
put a huge dent in the South Chinese population.
Since then, the numbers had only gotten worse,
and by 1994 the last South Chinese tiger had
been poached in the wild.
Reasonable efforts are being made to help
preserve what South Chinese tigers remain.
Today there are actually a few programs involved
with teaching some captive born South Chinese
tigers to hunt successfully on their own. With
these efforts, it is quite possible the South
Chinese tiger may have a future, but inevitably,
it is all up to you as a human, as the caretaker of
the world to prevent these beautiful animals
from vanishing from our memories. Please, don't
let their roars go unheard.

Waiting for the truth is always better than spreading a lie

Out the window she
fell. Thankfully, it
was only a few feet
from the ground, but
it still must have hurt. John
couldn't believe what he was
seeing. The couple next door
was at it again. Though they
did a pretty good job of hiding
their marital problems, it
looked like things had finally
gotten out of control. Never
did he imagine it would come
to this. The husband had liter-
ally pushed his wife out the
window. John quickly turned
his head as if he hadn't seen
it, got in his car and headed
off to work.
Throughout the day the
unforgettable scene bubbled
up in his mind. Finally, he just
had to tell
guess, his co-
found it a bit

Pastor some time
Rob Goyette now," he told
them, "but I
never would have believed
things were this bad. I really
feel sorry for the woman,"
John continued. "She seems
like such a sweet lady."
It wasn't long before John's
story spread throughout the
office and others were asking
him all the details. As John did
his best to tell them what he
had seen along with the little
bit he knew about the couple's
marital trouble, somehow the
story seemed to grow and
become even more convinc-
ing. Actually, before it was all
over with, some of John's co-
workers were so enraged that
they decided to call the abuse
hotline to have things investi-
It wasn't until John got .
home that everything sudden-
ly changed. There on the lot
where his neighbor's house
once stood was a pile of smol-
dering ashes and charred
remains. John's heart sank
when he finally learned what
had really happened. The
whole time he had thought
that his neighbor was being
abusive to his wife by throw-
ing her out the window; in
reality, he was saving her life.
I'm assuming by now you
realize that this story is made
up to communicate a very
important principle and here
it is: Just because we see
something that is true doesn't
mean that we know the truth.
Let me explain. You see, it was
true that John saw his neigh-
bor throwing his wife out the
window, but the truth was he
was saving her life, not abus-
ing her. If you stop and think
about it, we all fall into this
trap more mthan we liUKe to
admit. For whatever reason,
we're allowed to see what
someone does, but not why
they do it. I have found that
God is much more interested
in the why than the what.
Ever since the time that
Adam and Eve ate from the
Tree of Knowledge of Good
and Evil, mankind has strut-
ted around thinking they
know what's really going on.
The truth is we really don't.
Oh, I know we think we do,
but lefs be honest. How often
do we judge people based on
what we see on the outside
with absolutely no clue of
what's really going on in their
life? We see someone dressed
a certain way and driving a
cert iam car and sudduuenly we
think we know right where
they're coming from. I've
learned it's just not that way.
So what's the answer?
1 Corinthians, 4:5, says
this: "Therefore judge nothing
before the time, until the Lord
come, who both will bring to
light the hidden things of
Darkness, and will make mani-
fest the counsels of the
hearts." Simply put, if we will
resist the temptation to judge
others, God will show us what
we need to know right when
we need to know it.

The Lady Pirates defeated Yulee's Hornets
for the second-time this season-Tuesday and
the win pushed the Fernandina Beach High

(6-2 in the district). FBHS won in four games,
25-15, 24-26, 25-19, 25-23.

senior also had five aces and five blocks.
Caroline Garner had 31 assists; Joncier Smith
had 16 kills and five blocks; Erica Rodriguez
had 10 digs; and Anna Somora had nine kills.
"This was a big game for us," FBHS Coach
Shannon Strumlauf said. "We needed this
win because it counted toward our district
record and to be seeded third in the district
tournament. We had a great night offensive-
ly but didn't play our most solid defense and
Yulee had some great hits.
"We were behind in game three and four
and managed to dig our way out of the hole
and pull out the win. It wasn't pretty, but it was
impressive because our girls managed to pull
together, push through it and win the match.
"It is hard to come back from behind and
win, which we learned and struggled with
last week. But it was a good win because it
proved to the girls they are capable of fin-
ishing strong and coming out with the win."
The Lady Pirates suffered their fourth
loss of the season Oct. 2 at home with
Episcopal. The Lady Eagles won in five
games, 25-18, 25-20, 20-25, 22-25, 15-12.
I -Hannah Whitfield recorded a double-dou-
ble that day too with 19 kills and 10 service
points. She also had three blocks. Alyssa
Whitfield had a pair of aces; Garner had 31
assists; Rodriguez recorded 23 digs; Somora
had 10 kills; and Smith had 14 kills and eight
"We battled back from losing the first two
games of the match," Strumlauf said. "Every
single point and touch on the ball counted.
Episcopal has some great hitters, which real-
ly forced our blockers and defenders to work
"The girls stuck with it, stayed determined
but couldn't quite squeak it out in the end. We
were disappointed about the loss but took a.
lot from it.
"It showed the girls what type of game
play and tempo they are capable of and it
also showed us the little things we need to fine
tune before the district tournament."
The Lady Pirates play at Hilliard Monday,
host West Nassau Tuesday and Bishop
Snyder Thursday. Matches are at 5:30 p.m.
(junior varsity) and 6:30 p.m. (varsity).

There have been plays here or there that

where we are right now. We'd like to have
more but that is our record, that's where we
stand and we've got a big tough assignment

her career, which makes it all
the more amazing that she
has been sidelined due to her
brief stint on ABC's Dancing
with the Stars. During a
rehearsal Treanor stepped
back on her left foot and
heard a loud snap, initially
thinking that she had kicked
something behind her. But
when she tried to put weight
on the foot again, it would not
support her weight. She was
taken to the hospital, where
examination and MRI con-

The Achilles tendon is the
thick cord that you feel at the
back of your heel, which
attaches the calf muscle to
the heel bone. While the
Achilles is the strongest ten-
don in the body, Achilles ten-
don ruptures are common in
the professional athlete as
well as the "weekend war-
rior." Statistically they occur
more commonly in males
ages 25-45, but I have taken
care of just as many women
as men for this injury.
As was seen with Treanor,
the athlete will feel a sudden
snap in the back of the leg as
if he has been kicked and

Typically area flounder fisher-

pounders," prefer targeting
the high flood tide right down
to low tide for flatfish weigh-
ing to five pounds. However,
larger flounder weighing over
the 10-pound mark are often
taken during the fall fishing
Some of the best flounder
action has been coming just
north of the mouth of Egans'
Creek where old broken pil- -

attract Fernandina flounder.
Fish slowly along the bottom
with strips of cut bait, finger
mullet or bullhead minnows.
A flounder strike often is very
subtle. Flounder first attempt
to kill their prey, then 15 sec-
onds later, finally take their
meal into the back of their
mouth. When a strike is
detected, count to 15 slowly

The Amelia Island Chamber
Music Festival will present a
free concert of American music
at Central Park in Fernandina
Beach at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 19.
The Atlanta Woodwind Quintet, fea-
turing, the principal winds of the Atlanta
Symphony Orchestra, will perform
music composed by such American
greats as Leonard Bernstein, George
Gershwin, John Philip Sousa, Aaron
Copland, Samuel Barber and Scott
"Our free Concert in' the Park was
originally scheduled for June 1 as part of
the festival's seventh season but had to
be postponed due to inclement weather,"
said Christopher Rex, artistic and gener-
al.director of the Amelia Island Chamber
Music Festival. "We are delighted that
the renowned Atlanta Woodwind Quintet
has agreed to return to Amelia Island for
this performance of spirited works by
great American composers. This exciting
and entertaining program has been
designed to appeal to a wide range of
musical tastes and interests."
The concert, part of festival's commu-
nity outreach, is supported by a $7,200
. grant from the Rayonier Foundation, a
$10,000 grant from the National
Endowment for the Arts that also sup-
ported other concerts of American music
at this year's festival, and $2,500 from
First Coast Community Bank.
"We deeply appreciate the financial
support of the Rayonier Foundation, the
NEA and First Coast Community Bank.
These gifts are furthering our mission of
providing community residents with
access to world-renowned artists and
promoting the appreciation of chamber
music to audiences of all ages, interests,
and backgrounds," said Rex. "The gener-
ous support of these community-minded
organizations, which is a clear, indication
that our festival has significantly broad-
ened its base of support, signals the
growing recognition of the national
stature" of the festival.

unveiled a scroll with the names of the 3,000 lost that day. Every name was hand written by the children..The scroll,
