BOB MACIAS/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
The 49-foot sailing vessel "Shaken ... not stirred" beached on Amelia Island about 9 a.m. Wednesday
about a quarter mile south of the pier at Fort Clinch State Park. A nearby boat transported the opera-
tor and two passengers to safety and no one was hurt, officials said. The owner is reportedly working
with a marine salvage company to remove the vessel, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. The Coast
Guard does not tow private vessels unless there are health concerns.


20 years for




Pittman killer


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A California man was sentenced
Thursday to the mandatory minimum.
of 20 years in prison for the murder of
19-year-old Travis Pittman, a St. Marys,
Ga., man who was missing for three
years.
Michael Perry Cleveland, 30, who
was arrested in 2006 and indicted on a
first-degree murder charge, pleaded
guilty to second-degree murder and
robbery.
Assistant Public Defender Brian
Morrissey said his client is required to
serve the entire 20-year sentence minus
only the two years he's served in the
Nassau County Jail since his arrest.
Assistant State Attorney Doug
Dorsey said Pittman's mother, Debbie
Jackson, spoke at Cleveland's sen-
tencing about the "six years of hell"
she's gone through since her only son
disappeared. Dorsey, who stood in for
Assistant State Attorney Stephen
Bledsoe at the sentencing, said
Jackson's statement was powerful and
silenced the courtroom.
She reportedly agreed with the sen-
tence and said Cleveland would have to


live with what he did
and would spend the
next 20 years in
prison with people
4, who would know the
"heinous" crime he
committed.
i At the time of his
arrest in 2006, police
Cleveland said Cleveland lured
Pittman into a wood-
ed area near Hilliard
under the premise of helping him look
for something and shot him several
times. Some of Pittman's belongings
were found in a Nassau County home
where Cleveland lived at the time, mak-
ing him a person of interest back in
2003.
Jackson has said she met Cleveland
once while her son was alive. She said
Travis Pittman believed he.was going
to help him become a tattoo artist and
let him run a tattoo parlor he owned in
California.
'Travis trusted him, he thought he
was going to help him," she said at the
time. 'Travis just believed this was the
opportunity he was looking for."

It's more than a meal for those in need


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
On Tuesday and Thursday
evenings from 5 to 7 p.m. the Interfaith
Dinner Network serves a hot meal at
Hope House at Ninth and Date streets.
Starting operations on Sept 4, the din-
ners are open to anyone from the com-
munity who is in need of a nutritious
evening meal. Dinner guests usually
average about 45, but volunteers pre-
pare for 50.
"The dinners have been' served to
many homeless guests, but other indi-
viduals and families have also been
served. It is a cooperative effort of
members of the Homeless Coalition
and the Ministerial Association, as well
as staff at Hope House," said coalition
president Dr. Tom Washburn.
The IDN wants to bring churches
in a given area of Nassau County
together in a cooperative effort to pre-
pare, serve and clean up after dinners
at a central location.
"Initially, the work is in Fernandina
Beach," said Washburn. "Nine church-
es have come forward to rotate
evenings in providing dinners at Hope
House."
The goal is to recruit enough
churches so that dinners may be
served at least four times a week.
At a recent dinner, 46 individuals
were served, 16 of whom were self-
identified as homeless.

Memorial United Methodist Church women, from left, Jean Scheff, Carol Coombe and Barbara Davenport, dish up a good dinner Thursday
at Hope House. "This means not being hungry tonight," said Rick Durrough, right.


A longer-range goal of the IDN is to
institute dinners in other areas of
Nassau County, again with churches
working together to serve dinner in a
central location of each area.
The IDN is an outgrowth of the
Coalition for the Homeless of Nassau
County.. The late Ele Colborn invited
about 20 community members to join
her in November 2006 to discuss the
potential desirability of starting a coali-


tion. Her request was in response to an
initiative by the executive director of
the Jacksonville Coalition (Emergency
Services and Homeless Coalition) to
join it and Clay County as part of their
Continuum of Care.
It was after a series of monthly
meetings that some of those original
people, joined by other concerned peo-
ple and agency representatives, actu-
ally gave an official name to the group


and elected a board of directors in
September 2007. Their adopted mis-
sion statement was "to advocate for
the prevention and elimination of
homelessness, and the improvement
in living conditions of homeless people
in Nassau County."
, Last year, 305 people were assisted,
67 of whom were children in the
Nassau County Public Schools.
Through various agencies and church-


es, individuals were provided some
emergency shelter, food and clothing,
medical and dental care and mental
health care.

New fire chief enthused,


ready to take on new job


SHANNON MALCOM"
News-Leader
Leaving his job as a fire rescue bat-
talion chief in Ft. Lauderdale, where he
has worked for 27 years, to take a posi-
tion as fire chief in Fernandina Beach
is "bittersweet, but more sweet than
bitter," according to Daniel Hanes,
who will begin his new job on Nov. 3.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for
me," said Hanes, who has been spend-
ing time in Fernandina Beach this
week getting to know his new fellow
employees.
"I'm leaving a tremendous group of


professionals, and that's the bitter,"
he said. "But there is definitely more
sweet"
Hanes said he knew of Fernandina
Beach before he applied for the job,
but as he becomes more familiar with
the town and its people, he's becoming
more excited about his new job.
He applied for the position because
one day being chief of a department
was a career goal for him.
He said he's glad this town is where
he ended up having that chance.
"My first impression of the town
was that this is where I am going to be
for a very long time," he said. "It's an


honor and a privilege to work in para-
dise."
Hanes' two children are grown; he
and his wife, an operations manager
working in Fort Lauderdale, are house
hunting locally. Right now he's staying
at a hotel and spending time with the
firefighters and emergency medical
technicians who will soon be his
employees, getting to know the "nuts
and bolts of what's going on."
So far, he's impressed with the city
and even more impressed by the men
and women of Fernandina Beach Fire

Robin Lentz, a guidance
counselor at Yulee Middle
School, has something in com-
mon with many of the adoles-
cent students she sees every
day she has her own profile on
the popular social networking
website MySpace.
And Lentz, concerned for
her students' safety, keeps an
eye on them not only at school
but also in the world of virtual
cliques and socializing known as
MySpace.
"It is nothing for me to grab
them up in the cafeteria and say,
'Your MySpace is inappropriate,
and if I can see it so can the
world.'"
And that's a message whole-
heartedly endorsed by the law
enforcement community as
well; police warn that predators
have an easier time finding, and
befriending, potential victims
these days by using the
anonymity of the Internet.
Knowing how prevalent
Internet use is among middle
school students, and assuming
protecting children while they
use the Web for everything
from homework to connecting
with friends would be a major
concern of parents, Lentz organ-
ized a "technology night" at
YMS earlier this month with
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves and Capt. Clay
Parker from the Florida
Attorney General's Office as
guest speakers.

'"These kids are way more
slick than any of us realize," she
said.
But while children may
know how to operate a com-
puter and navigate the Internet
better than their parents, Parker
warned they are still children
and parents need to keep tabs
on the websites their children
are visiting while online and
who they're communicating
with while they're online.
"If you have a computer,
have the Internet, in your

"... It's your choice, as a parent,
to allow this predator in your

Parker said he works on a
task force-with three police offi-
cers andooQue prosecutor, and
together they focus on appre-
hending predators using the
Internet to connect with chil-
dren.

start conversations that would
make any parent's stomach
turn. Teenagers are most at
risk, he said. Females are slight-
ly more likely to-be victimized,
however he said parents with
sons should still be vigilant -
and toss any preconceived
notions about what a predator
looks or writes like.
"Teenage girls are most at
risk ... but that's rapidly chang-
ing," he said. "Predators are not
stereotypical... they have blown
all the sides off of all the boxes
I've drawn over the last 30 years
... I've seen business owners,
cops, attorneys, doctors, main-
tenance workers, people from
all walks of life as predators ... an
online sexual predator looks like
we do."
Parker advises parents to be
aware of the major "danger
areas" of the Internet includ-
ing chat rooms, online video
games, peer to peer programs,
e-mails that include attachments


and social networking sites like
MySpace and Facebook and
to monitor children when
they're using those services and
to be mindful of how much
information their child is reveal-
ing about himself or herself on
the Internet.
He said many juveniles have
public profiles that include
pictures of themselves and per-
sonal information such as their
address, age, where they go to
school, full name and other
information that is easily acces-
sible to anyone who knows how
to look for them.
Warning signs parents
should look for that could indi-
cate their child has encountered
some danger online include
excessive online use, unsuper-
vised time on the Internet, dras-


tic behavior or.attitude changes,
downloading large files and.
receiving gifts or phone calls
From adults the parent doesn't
know.'
"On the Internet, a predator
has thousands of potential
victims, there is a lack of
parental supervision, they can
network with other predators
and get personal information
from online profiles, and
they can remain anonymous,"
Parker said. "It used to be
that as a parent, you had to be
aware of physically where
your child was and who he or
she was with ... now you need
.to know all that and where
they go on the Internet and
who they talk to on the
Internet."

Nassau County voters will

County Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham and challenger
Danny Leeper on Nov. 4.
Higginbotham, who served
from 1988-96 and took office
again in 2004, said he's running
for the last time. "I stayed away
for eight years until I shw (coun-
ty government) crumbling
again, so I decided to run," he
said. "'his is my third term, and
if elected (the next term) will be
my fourth and last.
"I really believe in the peo-

serve. That's why I'm here. I

Higginbotham said Leeper, a
former Fernandina Beach fire
chief, lacks the credentials to
be a county commissioner. "He
just does not have the experi-
ence in all the various depart-
ments," Higginbotham said.
"You can talk to all the various
commissioners on that board
and they'll tell you it takes at
least two years to really under-
stand what's going on."
Leeper, however, discount-
ed that argument "I've had over
26 years in local government,
the last nine of those as a
department director," he said.
"I've been preparing and man-
aging multimillion dollar budg-
ets, actively managing person-
nel and planning for disasterss....
(Higginbotham) has had 12

years to address new growth
and the congestion along A1A.
I don't think we can afford four
more years of that type of expe-
rience."
Higginbotham, a former
Democrat and Republican now
running unaffiliated with a polit-
ical party, said his record speaks
for itself. "I was sitting on the
board when we had to make the
hard decision to do away with
the old hospital and turn it over


right decision," he said. "We put
new roads in, we got rid of the
garbage, we did away with the
debt. How do you choose one
over the other? They're all
important at different parts of
your life.
"If you take me out, you have
three new people on the board,"
he added. "... Why do you want
to change and put in an
unknown?"
Leeper, a Republican,
responded that a change would
be good for the county. "I
believe we're facing new chal-
lenges that are going to require
new ideas and new energy and
a fresh voice," he said. "I think
I'll be able to bring my fiscally
conservative views to the prob-
lems that challenge our fami-


opportunity right now in the
county. Within two years we
could have a brand-new board,
fresh energy and do away with
the ideas of the past."
Leeper also took aim at the
county's growth management
policy. "Over the years, we've
kind of had a growth that's got-
ten ahead of our infrastructure,"
he said. "We need a long-term
vision that defines how Nassau
County should grow. Basically I
just want to reconnect the pri-
orities of our citizens with the
commission."
But both candidates
acknowledged that the sinking
economy was the top issue in
the election. 'There are so
many issues that are so timely
to get done right now, with the


ny is, the way
ida's economy


and our own county's are turned
upside down," Higginbotham
said. "I think we're going to step
up to the plate on economic
development this year."
"I want to have a budget
review board to assure that
county government's more
accountable to our citizens and
that our spending priorities are
in line with the priorities of our
citizens, and encourage their
involvement," Leeper said. "I'd
address our fiscal policies to
make sure we're operating effi-
ciently and effectively. The goal
is to keep our taxes low and
control our spending and also
revisit our growth management
policies so they're in line with
our long-term plan."

FRIDAY, October 17, 2008 NEWS News-Leader


Kindred spirits and a sense of camaraderie


I've never been shy about
letting people know how
proud I am to be a veteran of
the U.S. armed forces or of
my affiliation with several
esteemed military service
organizations that wholeheart-
edly promote programs sup-
porting our veterans and their
families. In fact, my involve-
ment with these organizations
is how I got started in writing
this column. Their American-
ism Program needed a chair-
person and a publicity promot-
er, and as they say the rest is
history.
Throughout my tenure of
active duty and years later
after retirement, one concept
always amazed me, the degree
of loyalty and compassion that
truly exists between veterans
and the families of veterans.
Two events occurred
recently which reaffirmed my
belief that I'm not alone in the
world as I try to ensure our
veterans and the programs
supporting them receive
ample attention in our busy
day-to-day lives. I steadfastly
believe the contributions our
military make towards our
nation's goal for worldwide
freedom must never take a
backseat to other headline
news. I never lapse in my fail-
safe belief that a sense of
devotion will always exist and
be exhibited by the cama-
raderie built between military
veterans. I know there will
always be people out there
spearheading programs to
keep the veteran in the fore-
front Patriotism is not a lost
art and the occurrence of
these two recent events made
me feel as if kindred spirits
were at work, helping to sup-

port that
joint cause.
Recent-
ly, I had the
misfortune
to slight a
close friend
the credit
she was,
due con-
cerning her
contribu-
tion to one
of my fin-
ished proj-
ects. Days
after I sub-


mitted an article to the news-
paper, I awoke with a startled
question probing my mind.
Did I give credit to the pho-
tographer for her photos
taken at the recent Jackson-
ville VA Cemetery dedication?
It was like a bad dream. I
knew the only way my body
would allow me to return to
peaceful sleep was to investi-
gate that query and within
minutes my suspicions were
confirmed. She had indeed
been shortchanged. It wasn't
an intentional dupe or scam,
but an honest to goodness
oversight. I hemmed and
hawed how to handle my
screw-up, finally deciding hon-
esty was the best course of
action.
Her response was, "Don't
think a thing about it. I'm not
looking to get any personal
credit... I just want to bring
attention to our veterans. In
the end that is what I helped
to accomplish ..."
Needless to say, I was
relieved, but in the back of my
mind I remembered her
father was a vet also, another
kindred spirit. I kept rehash-

ing, "We veterans and family
supporters have to stick
together. By slighting'her was
I indirectly slighting another
veteran?" Her unselfish
response assured me I hadn't.
The second event that
monopolized my thoughts
involved a simple note I
received from a reader. He
wrote, ... I lost a close friend
near St. Lo, France June 10,
1944 due to erratic bomb sup-
port and another close friend
spent 11 months as a German
POW ... I have never felt this
country honors its veterans as
much as they are due..."
Have you ever been mes-
merized by a scene on TV or
something you've read?
Maybe you're sitting at dinner
and a simple word triggers
some past recollection where
you suddenly experience a
sense of deja vu. It may have
started with an innocuous
phrase that caught your atten-
tion, but progressed into a nig-
gling obsession, one that per-
sistently took over your whole
agenda.
In my case, it all started
with that simple note. It was
like a pesky fly that didn't
want to go away; his words
engulfed my thoughts, affect-


. PERFOMANCE FIRST-


There's a unification among veterans that's
difficult to explain. It's like an invisible force.
There is very little that can separate the
strong tie and unique bonding one
veteran has with another.


ing me in a special way.
My recent articles about
POW/MIA Day and the
Purple Heart Trail obviously
injected a sense of deja vu for
this reader too. I immediately
sensed a special link between
him and his comrades, feeling
a stab to the heart as I read
his recount of those signifi-
cant memories. I too, sincere-
ly feel veterans have not
received the full complement
of attention they so justly
deserve. However, this was
not a new concept for me, but
I wasn't sure why his corre-
spondence still continued to
baffle me. I was sure there
was something else I was
missing. Finally, that imagi-
nary light bulb lit; the knowl-
edge of understanding fol-
lowed.
It's been over 63 years
since World War II ended and
yet this reader still remem-


bered the exact date his friend
passed away. He didn't say my
friend died in 1944, but reflect-
ed the exact date, June 10. He
remembered another friend
spent 11 months as a prisoner
of war in Germany; not almost
a year,.but 11 months.
His total recall over-
whelmed me, exemplifying
that focus of camaraderie and
"esprit de corps." I wondered,
"What did it take to establish
this special bond which sur-
vived for so many years? Why
is the connection still so
strong for him and others with
like experiences? Where does
that sense of fidelity come
from?"
My answer to these ques-
tions is, simple. There's a unifi-
cation among veterans that's
difficult to explain. It's like an
invisible force. Their ages
may vary by 10, 20 or even 50
years, and they may not be of


' the same political affiliation or
have the same religious
beliefs. They might not even
agree on what the best movie
of the year is or in what stocks
one should invest. One may
come from Middle America,
while others hail from the
Pacific or Atlantic shores, but
there is one certainty. There is
very little that can separate
the strong tie and bonding
one veteran has with another.
It's called camaraderie.
So to Colette Beech, the
photographer for the
Jacksonville VA Cemetery
photos, and William, 81-plus
years, U.S. Navy World War II
veteran, who sent that simple
note, I thank you both. You
.inspired this article about
unique kindred spirits and our
joint, continuous fight for
American veterans and their
families.

housed the county annex and
the local hospital.
Because Baptist Medical
Center Nassau is expanding,
hospital officials have asked the
Council on Aging to vacate its
hospital-owned building across
the street by the end of October
2011.
But the city meeting about
the relocation was clouded by
thorny issues one of which is
the fact that the property, while
located within city limits, is
owned by Nassau County.
Commissioner Eric
Childers, who was chosen to
negotiate with county officials
on the property, told city com-
missioners that the county was
willing to lease the property to
the city for "not less than 70
and not more than 90 years."
The county, Childers said,
has estimated demolition and


asbestos abatement of the prop-
erty to be $420,000, a cost they
would like to split with the city.
The city's maximum liability for
demolition, he said, would be
$250,000.
But Commissioner Ron
Sapp said in reality the amount
the city would be paying would
be $320,000 because $75,000 of
the county's share was already
coming from city taxpayers.
Sapp said that asking for
$250,000 was just another
example of the county's treating
the citizens of Fernandina
Beach "a lot differently than
other taxpayers in Nassau
County."
"I can't imagine the same
scenario being put forward in
Hilliard, Callahan or Yulee,"
said Sapp. '"They have the nerve


ing this on its merit."
Commissioner Susan Steger
said any money the city gives
the county should be protected
until groundbreaking of the
new facility takes place.
"That is a beautiful piece of
property and an incredible loca-
tion," said Steger. "Once the
building is built, it is worth
$200,000 to our taxpayers to
have the Council on Aging cen-
ter in our community."
Another issue has been the
condition of the county-owned
property, which was once
Humphrey's Memorial Hospital.
The property has already been
found to contain asbestos, but
may have other serious envi-
ronmental problems.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor said his concern was
that remediation costs of the
environmental problems could


be much more than the
$402,000 estimated by the coun-
ty. He suggested the city could
go back to whomever caused
the contamination and collect
from the insurance carrier at
the time.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
said she had experience with
these types of building prob-
lems in the past, and said the
14th Street property may
need a Phase II environmental
assessment. But a Phase II
assessment, she said, could cost
hundreds of. thousands of dol-
lars.
"The city could bppaying for
somethingithat's never going to
happen," she added. "The site is
perfect because it's so centrally
located," said,Bach,."buj it's alit-
tle scary to think about 'What
if?"'
Bach said other possible
v r ,


sites in the city probably don't
have the environmental issues
of the 14th Street property
because they have been vacant.
"It doesn't cost us anything to
look at them," she added.
Bach suggested the city
could put a cap of $250,000 on
the project on the condition that
the money wouldn't be paid
until the groundbreaking, and
the county conducts both Phase
I and Phase II environmental
assessments.
Czymbor said other possi-
ble sites were a golf course
property on Simmons Road, and
airport property.
The consensus in the end
was for Jane Bailey from the
Council on Aging to look at
alternative sites with the city
manager, and for Childers to
talk with Nassau County
Commissioners about conduct-


mental
)erty.
ecutive
oId the
mission
h Street
OA had
t other


properties- but we have found
no others that we are as inter-
ested in as the 14th Street prop-
erty," he said. "So if we signed
a contract, we would certainly
no longer be looking at other
properties.".
Rizer also reminded the
county commissioners that time
was of the essence, since a
$500,000 grant from the state
could be withdrawn in 2009
unless'the COA has nailed down
plans for a new building. "But
once we have a contract and we
have a piece of property, surely
the state wouldn't be concerned
if we didn't break ground for a
year," he said.
The county commissioners
requested staff to set up a meet-
ing with city staff to continue
negotiations on sharing the cost
of asbestos removal and demo-
lition.

My mama raised me better'n that


was driving along the highway one day last
week when a large SUV passed me. I mean
a whopper of an SUV. Emblazoned in huge
bright letters all the way across the equally
huge rear window were the words, "Redneck
Woman." And from the looks of this, uh, lady,
I'd have to agree that she probably wouldn't
have to set down her beer bottle before com-
mencing to kick some serious butt.
But there was a time in this dear land of
ours, especially down here in the genteel
South, when calling someone a redneck was
about the worst kind of slur that could be
hurled at someone who wasn't of color, If you
called someone a redneck back where I came
from, you'd better be prepared to deal with the
consequences. And calling a woman a red-
neck? Son, that merited a funeral. The no good
so-and-so who called a lady a redneck needed
killing as they used to say. And you sure as
heck didn't refer to yourself as a redneck, even
if you were one and everyone else in town
knew it.
I'm not quite sure when it started, but polite
society has come down with what seems to be
a terminal case of downright sorry. I come
from humble origins. My mama and daddy did-
n't have.much and neither did either one of
their mamas and daddies. What we did have
was a sense of pride that was deeply ingrained
in us and remains there today. It didn't matter if
you were dirt poor, you could have some pride
in yourself. Being poor didn't mean you had to
be trashy or sorry or ignorant or a redneck. In
the homespun wisdom of the day, you might


not be able to help being
poor, but you could dang sure
help being sorry. I can
S- remember my mama saying
that so-and-so was sorry and
proud of it.
SAs I grew up in the small
Southern town of my birth, I
had the occasion to look
around me and see what my
CUP OF mama meant when she talked
JOE about people being sorry. I
met a great many humble
country folk over the years -
Joe Palmer from the formally uneducated
but successful man my grand-
mother married when my real grandfather
died, to the poor truck farmers who eked out a
living selling homegrown produce from the'
backs of battered pickup trucks, to the field
hands and pu'pwooders around the area.
Simple, salt of the earth folk who worked hard
and earned a living and tried to make things
better for their kids by way of education and
discipline. You would never call one of them a,
redneck or trashy or sorry because they
weren't. They might be poor or not very well
educated but they had a sense of pride that
shined through.
Every town has it rednecks, sorry people
and common, trashy people. In my youth, even
poor people from polite society avoided them.
You didn't let your son date a trashy girl and
you didn't let your little girl date a redneck.
The rednecks, trashy people and sorry people


kept to themselves.
And then one day, something happened. It
was suddenly OK to be a redneck. Chic to be
hick. They came out of their own closets and
spread across the South like boll weevils. They
were loud, crude and in your face. It appears
they're here to stay.
Polite society is made coarser by their insis-
tence upon sitting at restaurant tables with
greasy gimme caps on their heads, skeezy
attire in settings that call for decorum and vul-
gar, loutish behavior, in general. In the lingua
Sfranca of the redneck community, you're a
snob if you worked hard and got a college edu-
cation and good paying job. You're an elitist if
you have a law degree or a PhD and enjoy hav-
ing deep, intelligent discussions about things
of importance, even if you grew up on the
wrong side of the railroad tracks in Backwater,
U.SA Ifs the white man's version of a black
man calling another black man an Uncle Tom
for getting educated and succeeding in life.
Sadly, I don't see any end in sight. Things
have gone way too far when someone who
aspires to be a national leader brags about
being "valley trash" or has a corporation with a
French name that translates to -yep, you
guessed it redneck.
As Jeff Foxworthy might say, if you're loud-
ly proud of being trashy, you might be a red-
neck. Mama, I'm sure glad you raised us bet-
ter.

larly for the News-Leader E-mail him at treysurf

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


'Do gooders'
On Sept 11, 2001, a symbol of our economi-
cal success was destroyed by powers outside the
USA. In September 2008, our economical suc-
cess was destroyed by powers inside the USA. Is
there a common thread binding these two events
or is it just a coincidence? I do not know and
frankly would like to be Scarlet in Gone with the
Wind and think about this tomorrow!
What do I know? I know that my life savings
is within a couple of more bad market days of dis-
appearing. I know that our elected officials were
warned and did nothing about it. I know that it
started with "do gooders" wanting everyone to
have the American dream and own a home
regardless of their ability to pay. I know that
those loans were bundled together with good
loans and sold throughout the world. I know that
other institutions jumped onto the bandwagon for
easy money. I know that the "do gooders" got
votes and kickbacks from these institutions. I.
know that the "do gooders" in this instance are
sitting in the Congress of the good old U.S.A.! I
know that the poor people of the U.SA are easy
targets when Congress wants votes. So here we
are!
A slow-growing cancer has spread throughout
the world and we only were made aware after it
wvas too late to protect our own savings..We only
found' out about it when the banks could no
longer make loans to each other much less to us.
And where were our world-class media while all
of this was brewing why, carrying the, water of
the "do-gooders," of course!
Who has appeared most presidential in trying
to help us all? President Bush! He tried to warn
the Democrat-led Congress and was made fun of.
Partisan politics and the very hatred of our pres-
ident clouded the judgment of Nancy, Barney,
Harry, Chris and Chuck- "the ultimate do good-
ers all" and here we are in this mess and left with
no choice but to bail everyone out
Is this rewarding poor behavior? You betcha!
But maybe, just maybe, we, who had nothing to
do with this, can start on the road to recovery. In
the meantime, I am going to reward poor behav-
ior the only way I can and that is at the ballot box
this fall.

The end ofdemocracy
With the vote in the House of Representatives
on Oct. 3, democracy in America ceased to exist.
55 percent of Americans expressed the desire that
the bailout not pass. The Congress, both House
and Senate, ignored the will of the people and
voted for the bailout anyway. Millions of people
e-mailed their Congress demanding that the
bailout not pass. They were ignored. Now we
get to see how well the bailout (out of jail?) works
for the fat swine that really control the country.
There are only 171 representatives and 24
senators that voted the will of the people. Every
congressman that voted for the bailout should be
immediately recalled. This is not only taxation
without representation, but also a complete
betrayal of the American people in behalf of spe-
cial interests. If there was ever any question
about the patriotism of the Congress, the answer
is now revealed. We are being governed by a
group of greedy people who do not want to make
the sacrifices millions of middle and lower class
Americans have already had to make.
They say they acted in the interests of the
people. That is alie. The people are not stupid.
They understand that their children, their grand-
children and their great-grandchildren have been
sold into slavery to debt. Those entrusted to do
"the will of the people" have betrayed them. This
is no longer a government "of the people, by the
people, for the people."

National sovereignty
Re: "National sovereignty," Oct 10. It is just
"end times" biblical prophecy coming to fruition
no matter what the nonbelievers think. Canada,
Mexico and the USA will eventually join togeth-
er under the auspice of something like the
American Union. It happened in Europe and it is
happening here. Along with the present eco-
nomic chaos worldwide, with banks buying out
banks and currency fluctuations etc., we are
heading towards a worldwide currency, probably
a joining of the dollar and the euro.
You can't move around Europe, especially
England (ironically the birthplace of the U.S.
Constitution via the Magna Carta) without being
observed by cameras. The fight on terrorism
has made cameras palatable to the general pub-
lic, especially after the terrorist attacks in London
a couple of years ago. "Big Brother" is alive and
well and putting everything in place for a new
world orde r -.for a season until the Lord returns.

Political. economic,
financial assault
Political rhetoric, driven by the media, drives
negativity throughout our population, thus cre-
ating political gain to political parties.
While a recession is being preached from one
side, it is obvious we are not in a recession.
Statistics reveal we are in a transitional slow-
down, mainly driven by an inactive Congress.
This Congress appears to be hell-bent on winning
an election for their party, regardless of the cost
and security to our country.
We live in a country that has strayed too far
from morality, honesty and integrity. Politicians
will attempt just about anything to accomplish the
goal of winning an office for their party, regard-
less of the consequences.
I have lived through quite a number of elec-
tions. It seems to worsen as history marches on.
I love my country. Yet, I see our culture as
Americans disintegrating. We are moving towards
anarchy unless changes are made soon.
September 11 was appalling. I believe it helped
accelerate today's events. Twenty short years
ago we were warned terrorism was on the rise.
It would be our next great battle. We plodded
along carelessly, not understanding or caring
that we, as a nation, must stay alert.
Now we have become complacent again. We
are listening to political rhetoric of Change.
Change to what? We hear no response!
Now the leader of the house, Nancy Pelosi,
attacks the President of our country, personally,
not on policy, but personally.
.How much longer will the assault (political)
continue?

Senior says thanks
I recently had the privilege of attending a sen-
ior citizens dinner party sponsored by the
Corporate Volunteer Council (CVC). The CVC
consists of about a dozen very generous busi-
nesses and corporations.
Gail Shults and the Nassau County Volunteer
Center gathered a host of volunteers to participate
in and coordinate this event.
I cannot begin to remember the names of all
who contributed to a most enjoyable evening,
but here are a few: placemats made by students
from Emma Love Hardee, National Honor Society
students as servers, Amelia Island Plantation
donated and prepared an Italian dinner (in keep-
ing with the 'Taste of Italy" theme), Aaron Bean
serving as an excellent emcee and John Springer
playing and singing numerous "golden oldies,"
much to the delight of the over-50 crowd in atten-

dance.
Many thanks to all the above and to all the oth-
ers who contributed to a very nice evening of food
and fun.
Not to diminish my appreciation for the event
listed above, but while I am on the subject of
seniors and food, I think it appropriate to give
recognition to the company that I retired from,
Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation (SSCC).
In 1998, SSCC sponsored and supported the
SSCC Retiree Club. We have quarterly lunch-
eons, complete with decorations and guest speak-
ers. In addition, every December we have a "hol-
iday casual" Christmas party that includes our
spouses or significant others.
In this day arid age of downsizing, budget cut-
ting, etc., I find it extraordinary that the compa-
ny still shows their appreciation for our past per-
formance. I think I can safely say, on behalf of the
other SSCC retirees, that we are most grateful.

Domestic violence and children
The long-term effects of witnessing domestic
violence can create a cycle of violence that spans
generations.
Children who live with domestic violence face
numerous risks such as the risk of being abused
themselves and the risk of being used as a tool by
the abuser to gain control or manipulate the vic-
tim. These are only a handful of risks these chil-
dren face. These risks can lead to negative out-
comes for children and clearly have an impact on
them and our community.
Children are often exposed to domestic vio-
lence by hearing a violent event, being directly
involved in the violent event or experiencing the
aftermath. Exposure to domestic violence can
cause a wide range of behavioral, social and cog-
nitive problems such as higher levels of aggres-
sion, anger, low self-esteem, lack of conflict res-
olution skills, pro-violence attitudes and belief in
rigid gender stereotypes and male privilege. The
long-term effect of domestic violence varies from
case to case and depends on the age of the child
and how they were exposed to domestic vio-
lence.
Children who have been exposed to domestic
violence will become teenagers who enter the dat-
ing world for the first time. They are formulating
their own theories about relationships, and they
may base their relationship on the wrong model.
They have witnessed the cycle of violence with
the abuse, manipulations, excuses, apologies and
more abuse.
These teenagers are faced with a higher risk


of ending up in violent relationships as adults
either as victims or abusers.
Many men who are abusive witnessed their
mothers being abused and may even have been
victims of physical abuse themselves. Many
women who come from a family in which they wit-
nessed' their mother being battered are more
.susceptible to developing what is called "bat-
tered women's syndrome." This is a pattern of
signs and symptoms, such as fear and a per-
ceived inability to escape, which appears in
women who are physically and mentally abused
over an extended period by a husband or other
dominant individual.
Children who are subjected to domestic vio-
lence too often grow up and inflict violence on oth-
ers, creating a cycle of violence that must be
stopped. The cycle of violence is not limited to a
single relationship, but travels from one rela-
tionship to the next, from one generation to the
next. This cycle harms our society and our chil-
dren. It is a problem that requires a total com-
munity response.
What can you do to stop this cycle of vio-
lence? Domestic violence is the violence of every-
day life. You can start in your everyday life by pro-
moting respect and dignity for all people,
regardless of their gender, class, race, sexual
orientation or physical ability. Make a serious
effort to better understand issues of power and
control in whatever area they occur.
You can make sure information about
resources for victims is available at your church,
school and workplace. You can support domes-
tic violence programs with donations of money,
food, clothes, household goods or time. Request
that your child's middle or high school include a
healthy relationships program from Micah's
Place.
What better time to start than now! October
is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. If you
would like more information on how you can
help stop the cycle of violence, call Micah's Place
at 491-6364.

I have never met a more Christian and giving
person than Verna Bell ("Activist Verna Bell dies
at 55," Oct. 15). She practiced see, speak, hear no
evil. She felt sorry for uninformed and helpless
others. Verna was a living and true angel among
us. I miss her already. I considered Verna my sis-
ter.

Count our blessings not problems


There are times when we may won-
der just why some things happen the
way they do. We all have times when
our circumstances hinder our spiritual
development. No matter what it was,
God had to put it back together and it
brought us closer to him.
It is good to be sensitive to those
times when we feel we've lost contact
with the Lord, but God is so merciful, he
allows our golden moments to roll on
and just keeps blessing us. Have you
looked around lately to see just how
blessed you are?
Sometimes in our lives we may be
dropped, crumpled and ground into the
dirt by the decisions we make and the
circumstances that come our way, but
no matter what has happened or will
happen, we will never lose our value;
dirty or clean, crumpled or finely,


S. creased, we are still
priceless to those who
truly love us.
The worth of our
S* lives does not come in
what we do or whom
S- we know, but by who
we are. We are very
special. Let's not forget
it. We will never know
NOW AND the lives that ours
THEN touch, the hurting
hearts we speak to or
the hope that it brings.
Maybelle We should always
Kirkland count our blessings
and not our problems.
If there are things in our lives that
are not right, we have been given
chance after chance to get to know God
for ourselves. We should always give


him the highest praise Hallelujah -
and allow the peace of God to rule in our
hearts and be thankful as he fills us with
joy and peace, drawing us closer to him,
finding ways of adapting to those cir-
cumstances so we continue to reestab-
lish our closeness to him.
Our hearts are saddened by the
homegoing of our dear sister and friend
Verna Bell. She was a community peo-
ple's person and she will be truly
missed. Our prayers are with the family
at this time.

The Value of Close Friends

A study recently published in the American Sociological Review, based on data from the
General Social Survey by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of
Chicago, reveal that Americans today have fewer close fiends than they did just twenty
years ago. The average American.had only two close friends in 2004, compared to three
close friends in 1985. And perhaps even more disturbing was the finding that 25
percent of Americans reported having no one to confide in concerning important
matters. Besides the obvious implications of this research, which suggest we are living
lonelier lives, there is also cause for concern related to the increasing lack of social
support. Having friends that you
can confide in and ask for help I I
is obviously a good thing, and '
probably doesn't require --
academic research to confirm. n
However, many people may not .
be aware of additional research .
which links social isolation and .' "
loneliness to mental and physical .- -
illness. We would all do well to ,
cultivate more close frendsbhips;
and the best way to have a -
friend is to be a friend. Allowing
someone to confide in us, -
or helping someone with a chore
or running an errand for them
creates a social safety net that
will be there when we need
a friend. -

Now is the time


to plant spinach


Q .When can we plant
spinach in Northeast
Florida? JK
A .Spinach contains large
amounts of minerals and
vitamins, especially vitamin A,
calcium, phosphorus, iron
and potassi-
um. Spinach
also has high
levels of pro-
tein and
therefore is a
wonderful
addition to
any diet.
Some spe-
cific spinach GARDEN
cultivars to TAMI
plant are
Virginia -- ---
Savory, Becky ]ordi
Melody, ,.
Bloomsdale Longstanding,
Tyee, Olympia and'Malabar.
Planting should be done in
October and November so
you asked at th: right time! It
takes about 45-60'days to har-
vest. Avoid overhead irriga-
tion to reduce the potential
for disease. The biggest
insect problems are aphids
and leafmniners.
Aphids and leaftniners are
best controlled by using ultra
fine horticultger oil, which
can be purchased'at most any
garden center.
Q Are coontiespoisonous,
will they.secrete a toxin
into the soil? MTI
A.Coontie plants, Zamia
A.: floridana, are native to
Florida andlyou need not
worry about the plant leach-
ing any toxin in the soil.
These plants belong to the
cycad family, similar to sago
palms. Coonties were once
used by native Indians
(Seminoles) as a source of
starch. The roots were har-
vested and used for food. I am
told the root taste "just like'
chicken!" No, actually I was
told it tastes like celery.
Coonties tolerate any type
of soil, are very drought toler-
ant and mildly salt tolerant.
Although they can be grown
in full sun they seem to prefer
some .shade. 1f.growitin the
shade they produce beautiful,
dark green feathery foliage.
Coonties are diecious -
they have "male" and
"female" plants, therefore
both plants are required for
pollination. The fruiting struc-
tures look very similar to
small ears of corn on a stick,
which can vary from dark


brown to red-orange in color.
These plants have very few
disease or insect problems,
although scale can be an
issue if left untreated. The
most recent publication by
Dr. Ed Gilman from the
University of Florida/IFAS
can be found at http://edis.
ifas.ufl.edu/FP617.
Q I have a terrible prob-
.lem of doveweeds! My
yard guy sprayed a pre-
emergent, but they still seem
to be spreading. What should
I do? VC
A .The bad news is dove-
t.weed is an annual,
,which means is produces
huge numbers of seed. The
good news is doveweed has
no other way to reproduce.
Therefore, the best manage-
ment of the weed is to get rid
of it before it. It is tedious, but
hand pulling is one of the best
ways to control annuals com-
bined with the pre-emergent
your landscape maintenance
professional applies.
Late summer is not the
best time of year to apply
weed killers, which the weeds
apparently know because .this
it the peak time of year for
weed production. The only
way to kill the weed during
the summer is to use a non-
selective weed killer, which
will harm the grass or orna-
mental you are trying to save.
Consider giving your land-
scape maintenance profes-
sional-another year to get the
weeds under control by put-
ting out an application of a
pre-emergent this fall and in
the spring of 2009.
These applications do not
kill the adult weeds but they
help prevent the seeds from
germinating the following
season.

Reading as remedy. take solace in books


I must admit that the
sense of loss during the
weeks following David
Turtle's death, as well as
composing my column bid-
ding him a sad farewell, left
me struggling for inspiration
for today's column.
But like all inveterate read-
ers, I found
solace in
books.
While I do
.not usually
I -" use this
.* space for
book
f t reviews,
Maggie
CITY Carter-de
SIDEBAR Vries and
Becky Duke
~ have given
Cara Curtin us such
treasures
that I resolved to share them
with you.
Amelia's Secrets is a highly
entertaining account of a real-
life murder mystery that took
place in Fernandina in 1884.
Maggie Carter-de Vries spent
four years researching the
Eppes-Suhrer murder that
went down in the lobby of the
Mansion House Hotel on the
corner of North Third and
Broome streets. (The
Mansion.House is long gone,


but the Eppes house still
stands on South 10th Street.)
The narrator of this tale is
the city clerk, and he gives a
chatty, comfortable account of
life in Fernandina that year.
This makes Maggie's work
chock full of history, but she's
made the tale so engaging
that you will automatically
absorb it. Maggie's already
working on a second volume,
and I can't wait to read it.
Amelia's Secrets chronicles
the oh-so-familiar problems
that can arise when a pretty,
young wife is left alone too
much. Thomas Jefferson
Eppes and his wife Katie were
permanent residents of the
Mansion House while their
own house was under con-
struction. T.J. was a conduc-
tor on the Florida Transit and
Peninsular Railroad, a job that
required frequent absences.
The city clerk recounts how
Katie handled her unwanted
solitude, and how her social
circle viewed her approach to
a lonely life. Mrs. Eppes even-


tually claimed that her honor
had been sullied by the man-
ager of the Mansion House,
Major Ferdinand Suhrer. The
major was a former Union
Army officer who'd brought
his wife and children to settle
in Fernandina after the war.
When Katie complained to
her husband about the
major's advances, TJ cut
his shift short to come home
and shoot Ferdinand Suhrer
dead in the lobby of his own
hotel.
I won't tell you the rest of
the story Maggie would
shoot me dead! But I will tell
you that serendipity occurred
when she met one of
Ferdinand's., descendents and
they arranged to have side-by-
side exhibits at our recent
book festival
The subject of marriage
must be a common thread
that's running through my life.
lately. While the Eppes union
was short and disastrous, the
Suhrers and their six children
had spent decades together;


Amelia's Secrets is a highly entertaining
account of a real-life murder mystery in
Fernandina in 1884.


David and Barbara Tuttle cel-
ebrated their 42nd wedding
anniversary shortly before his
death. Andy and I just had our
35th, so you can see why the
subject of (long, successful)
marriage was already on my
mind when I picked up
Celebrating Marriage by
Becky Duke. Becky styles
herself as editor instead of
author because she has only
"lightly edited" the stories of
42 couples to capture the
essence of each marriage.
These marriages range
from one to 65 years that's
over 1,000 years of wedded
bliss! (Think about that for a
minute.) These marriages are
Christian-based and offer
hope and help to the rest of
us, as well as a few chuckles
along the way.
I recognized several
names in the table of con-
tents, which only added to the
fun. Rather than read the
book straight through, I
hopped around to learn about
people I know, like Eber and
Jane Philips (as in Philips
Manor Road). Their story is
on page 115, and it, too,
offers a lesson in Fernandina
history.
I met Jane and her daugh-
ter Jane Philips Collins when I
was doing some research for


the family; the booklet was to
be a family legacy that would
grow and endure.
Somewhere along the way,
Becky added the stories of
friends and neighbors, and
the result is this delightful
book. By the way, Becky is
working on her next collec-
tion of stories; contact her at
bdukel@comcast.net if you
would like to be a part of vol-
ume II.
Thank you, ladies, for pro-
viding me with the delightful
remedial reading that helped
heal the recent wounds left by
life's not so petty slings and
arrows. I look forward to
your next books happy
writing!
Cara Curtin is the co-
author, with David Tuttle, of
the Lieutenant Wilson Mystery
Series. Cara's writing career
spans over 30 years; she has
written for radio, television,
and a wide variety of print
publications. Contact her at
wordsmythe@net-magic.net to
ask her to speak to your group.


BUSINESS CARD BILLBOARD


Fernandina's Finest Easter.
Eber Philips was an excellent
photographer who left us a
wonderful pictorial record of
our island as it was in the
1950's and the decades that
followed. I could tell from
Jane's account of their mar-
riage that they enjoyed their
life together and their life in
Fernandina.
Then I had to go back to
page 27 to read about Becky
and Jesse Duke. I won't spoil
the story for, you, but will say
only that life is often a course
in miracles, especially for the
Dukes.
Celebrating Marriage is the
result of one family tradition
and an attempt to create
another. For over 50 sum-
mers, Becky's large family
has reunited for a week at the
beach, and last year she knew
she wanted to find a way to
tell the next generation about
the last one. Soon she was
transcribing the marriage sto-
ries of her parents, cousins,
aunts and everyone else in

of wedded bliss.

Start college loan search early


JASON ALDERMAN
For the News-Leader
As college costs have esca-
lated in recent years, students
increasingly depend on their
parents to help foot the bill.
According to a recent con-
sumer survey conducted by
Visa Inc., nearly a quarter of
those who attended college in
the past five years cited their
parents as the primary source
of funding for tuition and room
and board, trailed by govern-
ment grants and government-
backed loans (15 percent and
14 percent, respectively).
If you anticipate needing
help to finance your child's col-
lege education, it's best to start
investigating your options right
away.
The first thing you'll need to
do is to complete the Free
Application for Federal Student
Aid (FAFSA) form, which is
required by virtually all col-
leges, universities and career
schools for federal student aid,
.as well as for most aid from
states and individual colleges.
Get a FAFSA from your child's
school's guidance counselor or


financial aid office, by going to
www.fafsa.ed.gov, or by calling
1-800-4-FED-AID.
Note that although the
FAFSA filing deadline for fed-
eral loans for the 2008-9 school
year is June 30, 2009, many
state and school deadlines are
much earlier. Plus, you may be
required to complete addition-
al forms.
Several types of student
loans are available, including:
Campus-based aid. The
Federal Supplemental
. Education Opportunity Grant
(FSEOG), Federal Work-Study
(FWS) and Federal Perkins
Loan programs are. govern-
ment-funded and provided to
students having the greatest
economic need. Individual col-
leges administer some or all of
these programs themselves.
Filing deadlines are usually ear-
lier than for an FAFSA.
Subsidized Stafford loans
are low-interest, needs-based
loans where the federal gov-
ernment pays the yearly inter-
est while students are in school
They have no loan' origination
fee.
Unsubsidized Stafford


loans are not based on financial
need. Students are responsible
for interest that accrues while
enrolled in school. They have
no origination fee.
Banks and other financial
institutions offer private stu-
dent loans. They aren't guar-
anteed or subsidized by the
government and typically carry
higher interest rates than gov-
ernment loans, although you
can borrow greater amounts.
Details and rates vary widely.
College-sponsored loans
are offered by some colleges.
Interest rates may be lower
than federal student loans.
. Check each college's aid mate-
rials to see if they are available.
Federal PLUS (Parent
Loan for Undergraduate
Students) loans let parents bor-
row for their children's college
expenses. Interest rates are
fixed although higher than
student loans and there is a
loan origination fee.
Private parent loans are
offered by banks and other
financial institutions, usually at
higher interest rates than PLUS
loans. They may also have a
loan origination fee.

Some colleges also offer
their own loans to parents, usu-

Check each college's aid mate-

If college is still a ways off
for your children, here are two
tax-advantaged savings plans
you can investigate:
529 Qualified State
Tuition plans, where you save
money for education expenses
but don't pay federal (and in
many cases, state) income tax
on interest earned. Go to the
U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission (www.sec.gov/
investor/pubs/intro529.htm)
or www.Savingforcollege.com
to learn how 529 Plans work.
Coverdell Education
Savings Accounts are another
way to save money for educa-
tion where the earnings will
grow tax-free until withdrawn.

at Majors Golf Club
Due to heavy rains late in the week, the
Majors Golf Club in Palm Bay had less than
favorable golfing conditions; however, that did
not deter Eric Shelly from firing a first-round
score f 78, to take a one shot
lead into Sunday's final round.
Unfortunately, after bogeying his
first three holes to start Sunday's
round, he found himself down
by one.
Shelly was patient and ran off
five straight pars and a birdie to
close the front nine with a 38.
Taking a two-shot lead into the Shelly
back nine, Shelly's play remained __
strong and steady to post a final
round 76 and win the boys 10-11 age bracket of

Return to play when


it's as safe as possible


Just this week I took care of a
high school athlete who-had injured
his knee. Fred has been through a
lot with his knee. About a year ago,
he tore his ACL and underwent a
surgical reconstruction in order to
return to the field. He did well with
his recovery and returned to the
starting lineup this season.
Then last week, he was participat-
ing in a practice drill, hyper-extended
his knee and felt a sharp pain on the
inner aspect. His exam and MRI con-
firmed that he had torn his medial
meniscus. I discussed his treatment
options with him and his father.
One option was to allow him to
play with a torn cartilage, a move I
didn't recommend. This would have
allowed him to finish out his senior
season but could risk further dam-
age to his already reconstructed
knee.
Another option was to scope his
knee, assess the damage and treat
the findings. This might allow him to
return for the playoffs in a'ironth but
could end his season if he was found
to have a repairable meniscus.
After speaking with his.parents,
he chose to do what was best.for his
knee and have surgery. He went to
the OR on Wednesday of this week
and fortunately he had a meniscus
tear that I was able to repair.
I tell my athlete patients all the
time my goal is to get them back on
the field ASAP, which for me is "as
safe as possible." I see scenarios all
the time where a high school athlete
finds it hard to hang it up and do
what is right for his health .Although
he is done for the rest of tlie year as
far as football, Fred knows that he
made the right decision for the long-
term health of his knee.

I recently saw a 10-year-old male
who injured his hip in a football
game. Adam was crawling along the
ground and, as a pile ensued, he sud-
denly felt pain in the front of his hip.
His history and physical as well
as his X-rays were consistent with a
pelvic avulsion fracture. This is
caused by the strong thigh muscles
popping off their weaker attachment
point to the immature bony pelvis.
This typically occurs due to a sudden
forceful contraction of the quadri-
ceps muscles, especially if the hip is
being stretched into an extension or
"backward" motion.


Immediate pain
was felt and it was
difficult to walk. He
also developed
swelling of the
thigh and leg over
-the next 24 hours.
My patient was a
little young for this
injury since this
typically occurs in
'SPORTS the athlete aged 12-
15. It is rare once.
MEDICINE an athlete has
GREGORY stopped growing.
The immature
SMITH, M.D. growth center
....- where the muscle
attaches is a weak
spot and is subjected to high stresses
from running and jumping. As the
bone matures and strengthens, this
injury fails to occur and it is more
likely the muscle itself may stretch
or tear.
These types of injuries almost
never need any form of surgical
treatment. No casting or immobiliza-
tion is necessary. A rehab program
may be prescribed if the athlete is
particularly stiff or sore from this
. injury.

Justa thought
Am I the only one who finds it
perplexing that our Congress spends
days trying to figure out whether or
not Roger Clemens used steroids but
no hearings have been held regard-
ing the financial crisis. They spent
about a week a couple of years ago
grilling Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa
and Rafeal Palmeiro on their steroid
use but no one has called for a single
hearing as to who is responsible for
the current situation. Maybe if the
responsible congressman was using
performance enhancing drugs, then
it might get someone's attention.

Local fishermen welcome smooth water, light seas


With strong north-
east winds blow-
ing during the
first portion of
this week, area offshore fish-
ermen are hoping for smooth
water and light seas for this
weekend.
Baitfish pods may be hard
to find so be sure to bring
along a box of frozen cigar
minnows and a pound of fresh
local squid. Cut the cigar min-
nows in half and barb a cut
- cigar minnow on the bottom
hook. The top hook is
reserved for a fresh local
squid. Once a small sea bass
is boated, cut the sea bass
into two-inch chunks and use
the cut sea bass for bait as
well.
Snapper fishermen also
prefer to fish with live sar-
dines, cigar minnows, live
grunts or live pinfish. Keep an
eye on your fish finder while
you are snapper fishing and,
when a school of baitfish
moves under your boat, have
a bait catcher setup ready.
You can also barb a small
piece of squid on a No. 6
kahle hook and fish the squid

"Fishing has been on and
off at the tip of the St. Marys
south jetty rocks," said Capt.
Benny Hendrix, skipper of
the local charter boat, "Heavy
Hitter." "One day our charter
will stay hooked up to 20- to
30-pound bull reds and then
the next day on the very same
tide we may catch and release


a handful of big reds. They
are moving all the time and
with good reason. This it
their spawning season.
However, we seldom miss
while targeting reds at the
jetty rocks during the months
of October and November."
Light tackle fishermen
should take advantage of the
big run of jack crevalle that


are preying on the current
run of fall mullet. The best
tide for jack fishing is a
strong incoming tide where
massive schools of mullet are
migrating in the deep chan-
nels of the rivers and bays. In
fact, a good place to begin
looking is right in the deep
waters of the Amelia River
between the Fernandina

PHOTO COURTESY OF CAROLINE BLOCHLINGERK
Amelia Island Jazz Festival headliner and renowned tenor saxophonist Harry Allen performs Saturday
night in the courtyard at St. Peter's Episcopal Church. Backing musicians are Jamie Ousley, bass, and
Les DeMerle, drums.


Clear skies, hot jazz for festival


For the News-Leader
Generous helpings of tradi-
tional, big band, be-bop and
Latin jazz cascaded
throughout Amelia Island as
the 2008 Les DeMerle Amelia Island
Jazz Festival last week presented its
strongest offering to date, thanks in
part to a kind nod from the weather-
man.
Beginning with a free concert fea-
turing the University of North
Florida Jazz Ensemble on a comfort-
able, overcast afternoon Sunday,
Oct. 5 in Amelia Park, the 2008 Les
DeMerle Amelia Island Jazz Festival
proved again that it can deliver the


best in first-rate musicianship. The
initial concert had an all ages audi-
ence of 400-plus swinging and
singing and was highlighted by
guest appearances from drummer
and festival director Les DeMerle
and his wife, vocalist Bonnie Eisele,
both of whom made multiple appear-
ances at shows throughout the
week.
Thursday's Latin concert in the
showroom at the Palace Saloon, a
first time event for the festival, suc-
ceeded as a standing-room only
crowd danced into the night to the
rhythms of Impacto Latino, a multi-
faceted 10-piece ensemble from
Jacksonville.


Throughout the week, DeMerle,
Eisele and various festival musicians
and volunteers took their knowledge
and expertise of jazz into area
schools, reaching out to students at
the Fernandina Beach Middle and
High schools, Yulee Middle, the
Amelia Island Montessori School
and St. Michael's Academy.
"We love discussing this vital
American music with and perform-
ing for young people," said DeMerle,
"and it is a great thrill to watch their
faces light up as they get into the
unique sounds of jazz." DeMerle
and company also made a presenta-

Sometimes stew


is serendipitous


There has been a lot written in
the past few years about the
"French dilemma," or the way peo-
ple in France seem to be able to eat
whatever they want, and still stay
thin.
Many Americans do seem to
have an adversarial relationship
with food. We eat on the run, not
paying much attention to the ingre-
dients. We tend to group our food
into "good" or "bad" categories, and
our behavior into "good" or "bad"
eating. If a woman eats a, slice of
cheesecake she is being Bad
because Cheesecake is Bad. If she
eats a serving of curly fries, she is
so Bad that she completely gives up
on her diet and eats a whole apple
pie.
I'm no nutrition expert, but my
method is to mix it up a little bit,
and (like the French) eat a little bit
of everything. The operative phrase
is "a little bit." You can eat whatever
you want just don't eat a lot of it.
This recipe, which contains
"bad" sausage, came about because
I had only a few fresh ingredients in
the house, and I didn't feel much
like making a trip to the grocery
store ... maybe it was snowing or
maybe I was too broke, I don't
remember.
It's not as easy to find yellow
lentils around here as it is up North,
but you should be able to find them
in your local health food store. You
can also use red lentils, but bear in
mind the red ones cook very quick-
ly, within 15-20 minutes. French, or
black, lentils are also an excellent
version, and they keep their disc


shape no matter
how long you cook
them, but they do
take a.little longer
to soften.
I like the yellow
lentils best
because they have
a mild, nutty fla-
vor. They are a
BODACIOUScommon staple in
COOK the Middle East
...g (called dal), and
are also very nutri-
Angela tious.
Daughtry This makes
enough for a large
family or several meals. For two or
three people, just cut the ingredi-
ents in half.
As with all stews, it goes great
with some French or Italian bread -
and of course your favorite dry, full-
bodied wine. Go ahead, be naughty,
eat a little sausage.

'SERENDIPITOUS
YELLOW LENTIL STEW'
1 lb package of yellow, red or black
lentils.
3 or 4 cloves of garlic, finely
chopped
3 or 4 celery stalks, finely chopped
(plus leaves if you have them)
1 lb of Italian or other sausage
Freshly ground black pepper to
taste
Curry powder, coriander and/or
cumin (optional)

Awards wrap up


first film festival


For the News-Leader
While most people think of sun-
baked beaches and charming historic
homes when they think of Amelia
Island, there was much more to this
quiet little spot when it turned into
"festival island" when filnim enthusiasts,
filmmakers, directors, actors, produc-
ers and fans turned out for the
Inaugural Amelia Island Film Festival.
The festival ran Sept. 25-28 and fea-
tured more than 45 movies, every-
thing from short documentaries to
comedy to musicals, to sci-fi gore. The
AIFF venues were scattered around
the island at such places as Palace
Saloon, Florida House Inn, Peck
Center and the Woman's Club.
The mingling began on Thursday
with a filmmakers welcome reception
at the Florida House Inn and was fol-
lowed by a Friday night gala party and
a reception Saturday at George and
Barbara Sheffield's Bailey House.
During the reception, guests were
invited to view "Darius Goes West:


.The Roll of His Life," at the Palace
Saloon. The movie is about a crew of
college-age students taking Darius
Weems, who has Duchenne Muscular
Dystrophy, cross-country in an RV in
hopes of convincing MTV's "Pimp My
Ride" to customize his wheelchair. A
birthday party was held for Darius's
19th birthday. Darius' older brother
died of MD at the age of 19 and was
not able to graduate from high school.
Darius graduated in June and he hopes
to outlive his brother. Participating in
this film has certainly given him the
motivation he needs to do that.
The four-day event wrapped up
Sunday afternoon with an awards cer-
emony at the Hampton Inn and Suites
Downtown. The awards go as follows:
.* Best Musical/Comedy
"Earano"
Director: Luke Matheny with a
$500 cash award

with Destiny"
Directors: Ray Goodrich & Kyle

Bill Prince.
Up next Orlando's Dirty
e Martini, led by tenor saxo-
y on phonist Jeff Rupert and featur-
said ing scat singing vocalist
he Michelle Amato, brought a
samba influenced shade to the
bed- evening's fare.
recre- But the evening may well
ade, have belonged to the superb
nd- Bill Allred Classic Jazz Band,
also from Orlando, which was
making its second appearance
e fes- at the festival. For the finale,
ional DeMerle's band combined
yard with the Allred ensemble.
The festival continued
ith a under the stars at St Peters
he on Oct 11, opening up with
;and, The Amelia Island Jazz
id Festival All-Stars, first as a trio
thews with pianist Michael Levine,
r sax), bassist Jamie Ousley, and
t Dr. DeMerle, performing
"Cookin'" At The Corner" and
Rogers & Hammerstein's "It
Might As Well Be Spring."
Prince returned to add a
stirring version of "Avalon"
before Eisele and the band
wowed the capacity crowd.
Festival headliner Harry
Allen, tenor saxophone virtu-
oso, hit the stage with a sure
handed set that ranged from
highly melodic to sultry to
downright full blown horn ren-
derings that bore the influ-
ence of his idol, Stan Getz.
Backed by the rhythm section
of DeMerle, Ousley, and
Levine, Allen was also joined
by his longtime friend, Jeff
Rupert, for an intricate, break-


O STEW Continued from lB
Run cold water over the
e s lentils in a colander to wash
ioff any impurities and check
P ovide for small rocks.
Pour them into a stockpot
with an extra 2 1/2-3 inches of
* water on top.
* o As you bring them to a boil
(then simmer) mince the gar-
lic and chop the celery. Add
black pepper and desired
spices. Let the lentils simmer
S* * for 30-60 minutes (depending
* * on the type of lentils you
have) or until soft. If the stew
* starts to get too thick, add a
* * little more water.
When lentils are at the


neck jaunt composed by Ben
Webster, "Sound Investment,"
after which Prince returned
and the three saxophonists
reeled off a stunning tribute to
the late great tenor man,
Johnny Griffin, with his "The
Blues Up And Down."
Next came the U.S. Navy
Band Southeast, a 19 piece tra-
ditional big band. Band vocal-
ist Valerie McKendrick
brought the crowd to its feet
with a reading of "America
The Beautiful" before the
band joined with other festival
headliners for a grand finale.
Late night jam sessions
went on at Jack And Diane's
across the street.
The festival concluded
Sunday with a Dixieland jazz
brunch at The Beech Street
Grill, featuring The Spare Rib
Six and Bonnie Eisele, sump-
tuous food and a potent por-
tion of great New Orleans
Jazz.
."This was perhaps our best
year yet, and we very much
appreciate the support we've
received from our sponsors
and volunteers, and the
Amelia Island community as a
whole," said DeMerle.
All proceeds from the.
week's events benefit the
Amelia Island Jazz Festival, a
not-for-profit 501(c) 3 corpora-
tion, and its newly established
jazz scholarship program.

desired softness, take the
sausage out of the casing and
roll into bite-sized balls, drop-
ping them into the stew as
you go. This will create a tasty
broth. (Wash your hands thor-
oughly before and after-
wards.) When the sausage is
cooked through (10 minutes
or so) the stew is ready to
serve.
(My husband, who has
worked as a professional chef,
says he prefers that the
sausage be browned before
putting them into the stew.
This will keep more of the fla-
vor within the sausage and
less in the broth.)
