Boatright Palma


20 to I
MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
It's no contest, at least in terms of
money raised, in the election for a
new county commissioner in District
3, which includes Callahan. Nassau
County voters will decide Tuesday
whether Walter (Jr.) Boatright or
Ramiro Palma will replace longtime
Commissioner Marianne Marshall.
Boatright, a Republican, easily
won the fundraising campaign, raising
almost 20 times more money this year
than his opponent much of it from
out of county and much of it from
development or building interests.
Palma, a Democrat, raised $2,450
in cash and $173 in in-kind contribu-
tions, according to reports filed with
the Nassau County Supervisor of
Elections Office through Oct. 14. His
largest contribution, $1,000, came
from the Nassau County Democratic
Executive Committee.
Palma's largest individual con-
tributor was Phil Morton of
Bryceville, a Democratic Party stal-
wart, who gave $400.
Boatright, on the other hand, had
numerous $500 contributions. Some
of his contributors gave more because
they could contribute both for the
August primary election, when

New church still


facing code delays.


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
The new First Baptist Church on
Eighth Street is still facing delays
before it can be issued a final certifi-
cate of occupancy, according to the
city's Community Development
Department.
The church was denied the cer-
tificate in September because Chuck,
Barr, the city's building official, has
claimed that some of the structure's
walls do not meet city fire code reg-
ulations.
Barr has identified the church's
choir rehearsal room as being the
major problem as far as its fire-rated
wall assembly, but also pointed out
some structures in the main sanctu-
ary as having fire-rating problems as
well.
Barr noted city staff has been at


the new structure every day over the
past week doing inspections in the
hope that they can address "numer-
ous problems" within the structure.
Barr also said the church will not
be installing kitchen equipment at
this time due to lack of finances. So
far, he said, church and construction
representatives have not told him
how they plan to comply with the
building code.
Community Developrment
Director Marshall McCrary said the
church has three options in address-
ing the code violations in order to
obtain a certificate of occupancy.
One option, he said, would be to
come into compliance immediately,
but that would cost money the church
either does not have or does not want
to spend.

She's seeking cancer survivors for Relay for Life


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader


"We need people who have survived all types
of cancer to participate in Relay for Life," said
Survivorship Development Chair Laurie Ligon.
"This year, as we focus on colon cancer, we
would love to have all the local colon cancer
patients register to participate in our Victory Lap
on Friday, Nov. 14."
Each survivor who registers in advance
receives a free survivor's T-shirt to wear as they
walk the first lap that kicks off the relay.
Diagnosed with rectal cancer in 1998 and then
again in 2001, Ligon knows firsthand the strug-
gles and victories of being a cancer survivor.


A friend introduced her to
someone who had gone
through the same thing she .
had before her colostomy sur- . -
gery in 2001.
"It was comforting to have
someone who actually knew
what I was going through to
talk to about what was hap-
pening to me," said Ligon. ligon
It was this new friend who
got Ligon involved with Relay
for life for the first time. Last year, that same new
friend asked Ligon to speak at the Survivor
Dinner and from that, Ligon's involvement grew
to her current role as survivorship development


chair.
In this position, Ligon's main duty is to regis-
ter local cancer survivors to participate in Relay
for Life.
"More than half of the cancer survivors that
have volunteered to participate this year so far
have had breast cancer. Fernandina Beach has a
great breast cancer support network in place
which has also helped us to recruit participants,",
reports Ligon. :
ligon understands why some cancer survivors
choose not to participate in the event
"Part of me understands that. Everyone has
their own reasons. I think for some, they just
don't want to live their lives with the cancer label.
They like to think of it as just a glitch in their lives


that they've overcome and don't want to conti-'
ue to dwell on it I, too, was hesitant at first. But
once I got involved, I was hooked!"
"She is an inspiration, having lived through
cancer and going on to volunteer for Relay for life
to honor others who have survived," says Relay
for Life Publicity Chair Shanda McRannolds of
Ligon.
In addition to the complimentary reception for
survivors and caregivers following their lap at
the Relay, survivors are honored at the Survivor
Dinner on Nov. 6.
The Relay for Life begins at 6 p.m. on Friday,
Nov. 14 and lasts until noon on Saturday at the

CHURCH Continued from 1A
Brett Relick, project man-
ager for Elkins Constructors of
Jacksonville, which built the
church, said at a meeting in
September that it would cost at
least $50,000 to correct the fire-
code problems, once a plan is in
place.
Another option, said
McCrary, would be for the
church to obtain a "partial cer-
tificate of occupancy," whereby
the church would have to first
correct the issue of the doors in
the sanctuary so it can be used
by the congregation. The
church would also have to
prove that it could keep people
out of the area that is still in
code violation.
The church could also, as a
third option, file an appeal
through the Department of
Community Affairs to the State
Building Commission, asking
that the proposed, but not yet
adopted, 2007 Florida Building
Code be applied to the current
situation.
According to McCrary, the
new state building code is

McCrary said his depart-

He also said city staff is

City takes exception



to airport aerobatics


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
Ferrandina Beach Com-
missioners have agreed unan-
imously not to back a Federal
Aviation Administration cer-
tificate of waiver that supports
an aerobatic practice area at
the Fernandina Beach Munici-
pal Airport.
The certificate would have
waived Federal Aviation regu-
lations regarding the box until
January. The FAA, however,
may still re-approve the waiver.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor, in a letter to the FAA
in July, asked for several con-
ditions to be added to the waiv-
er due to citizen complaints.
The FAA agreed to most of the
conditions, including limiting
hours of the box, but held
action on the last condition
until city commission recom-
mendations. That condition
required "approval of (the city
of Fernandina Beach) and the
property owners over which
aerobatic flight will be con-
ducted."
Keoki Gray, who has lived
in Fernandina Beach since
1989, has been the holder of
the certificate for about eight
years. Gray had an aerobatics


training business until
December 2007, but says the
aerobatics practice area is real-
ly a public service for pilots.
As certificate holder, Gray
says he monitors the aerobat-
ics box by briefing pilots, going
over diagrams and keeping
pilots aware of approaches. The
certificate itself, he said, waives
certain FAA regulations about
aircraft maneuvers done close
to the ground.
The aerobatics box has
come under criticism in recent
months because of complaints
about plane noise by sur-
rounding homeowners. A peti-
tion questioning the noise,
signed by 150 of those home-
owners, was recently present-
ed to the city.
Resident Tom Moore at the
Oct. 21 commission meeting
complained that the noise of
aircraft within the aerobatics
area is bad, but "near Harris
Teeter the noise is unbeliev-
able."
Resident Lynn Williams,
who has flown private planes in
the Midwest, asked about "the
notion of danger" that is posed
by aerobatics pilots, adding that
"the idea that pilots stay in the
box is a fiction." He also noted
that "stunt flying has a high

rate of risk, (and) the risk isn't
one we should take."
The aerobatics box was cre-
ated about 20 years ago,
according to airport manager
Richard Johnson, who said at
the meeting that he had "mixed
emotions" about it.
In a document submitted to
the city, Johnson wrote that so
far this year, the aerobatics box
has been used only 22 days.
Last year, according. to
Johnson, the area was used 76
days by 12 different pilots.
Johnson also wrote that "the
aerobatic practice field brings
very little revenue to the air-
port," but generates the most
noise complaints.
The practice area was also
established, said Johnson, at a
time when there was less resi-
dential development around
the airport. He noted that the
aerobatic box would "likely dis-
appear should Crane Island be
developed, as this area is also
located directly under the prac-
tice area."
Gray said that currently
there are no homes directly
under the aerobatics box,
which lies just west of the air-
" port and at the edge of the
closed north/south runway.
As an aerobatics advocate,
Gray said he believes that
learning aerobatics helps pilots
with their overall skills by mak-
ing them more confident and
giving them better knowledge
about how a plane operates.
Gray said he receives no com-
pensation for holding the cer-
tificate.

Micah's Place. Fire officials said
that without a sprinkler system,
the entire shelter would have
been lost, she.said.
Victims of domestic violence
and their children have been
placed into alternative safe shel-
ters. Micah's Place continues
to provide other support and
outreach services.
"This is a frightening time to
be without a shelter. The econ-
omy is already causing many
victims to remain in dangerous
situations as it is. And although
women and children can use
our 24-hour hotline so that we
can find other shelter for them,
the situation demonstrates how


lives harig in the balance with-
out a shelter in our community,"
Micah's Place Executive
Director Shandra Riffey said.
, Before Micah's Place
opened the doors to its emer-
gency shelter in 2003, victims
and their children had to travel
outside of the county to find
safety, she noted.
As with all social services,
the cost to provide services is
on the rise each year, and the
fire has put an additional strain
on the Micah's Place budget,
staff said.

interest to veterans and their
families, what better source to
tap .than the organizations
whose goals are just that, help-
ing the American veteran.
At other times I answer that
same query using a simple anal-
ogy where I compare my proj-
ects to a snowball. I know it may
be difficult for the tried and true
southerner to envision a snow-
ball with all of this wonderful
sunshine, but to a transplanted
Yank like me, it fits the bill per-
fectly for my comparison. It
starts small, but add more snow
and gradually it grows. Before
you know it, that small pellet of
fluffy white stuff has grown, and
tada "Frosty the Snowman."
Quite frequently, somebody
only needs to mention a simple
word or phrase 'and my fingers
begin to 'tingle; I can't wait to
explore the idea. I must have
some weird brain cells floating
around in my head because
words like telephone remind
me of "Operation Uplink" spon-
sored by the VFW. I hear the
word motorcycle and I think of


the American Legion Riders.
Now, maybe you can under-
stand how a simple word or
phrase grows to a paragraph
and finally into a story that I
hope you will all enjoy.
There's also the oddball time
when no particular event on any
calendar really grabs my atten-
tion and I invariably throw out
the arrogant challenge, "Pick a
subject, any subject, some off
the wall event that has nothing
to do with military pomp and
ceremony." I zealously contend
I can come up with something
regarding that subject and
relate it to a veteran's program
or a historical military event.
Recently that challenge was
issued and out popped the
words, Mother's Day. It would
take some serious thought, but
I was sure I could find some-
thing of a patriotic nature asso-
ciated with this special day.
However, this month I have
no difficulties in coming up with
several events to expound upon.
Numerous days in November
will draw attention to the veter-
an, current members of the
armed forces and the highly
motivated individuals who have
dedicated themselves to help-
ing veterans and their families.
I'll be listing them in chrono-
logical order but please note,
none have any higher level of
importance that the other.

and mentally."
Nov. 10, the US Marine
Corps (USMC) will celebrate
its 233rd birthday. The USMC
enjoys a unique relationship
with 'the U.S. Navy, partly
because they both specialize in
seaborne operations. They are
part of the Department of the
Navy and report to the
Secretary of the Navy, however,
the Corps is a distinct and sep-
arate branch of service, not a
subset of the Navy. Their motto
is Semper Fidelis; their slogan
"The Few The Proud" and
their seal/emblem includes the
Eagle, Globe and Anchor. To
the proud members of the
Corps, happy anniversary and

Nov. 11, Veterans' Day.
The following is provided by an
unknown author: "What is a vet-
eran? A veteran is an ordinary,

- someone who offered his life's


vital years in the service of his

a savior and a sword against the

Did you know a lot of
Americans confuse Memorial

Forces Day? All three celebrate
the men and women who serve'
our country, but Veterans Day
celebrates both the living and
the dead who have served our
country in the armed forces.

I can fulfill that challenge. In
1870, a Mother's Day Procla-

armament in an attempt to get
formal recognition of a Mother's
Day for Peace.
Though the proclamation
failed in 1870, in 1914 President
Woodrow Wilson declared the
first national Mother's Day as a
day for American citizens to
show the flag in honor of those
mothers whose sons had died in
war.

In Florida, public access to
the waterfront and water-
dependent businesses are
being taxed out of existence.
That's due to the state's
inequitable tax code that
appraises every single water-
front parcel marina, boat
ramp, commercial fishing
operation or any other water-
dependent facility at "high-
est and best use" tax rates,
not what the property is actu-
ally used for.
On Tuesday, Sunshine
State voters will have a
chance to level the playing
field by voting Yes on
Amendment 6,'which if
passed will all6w waterfront
parcels to be assessed on
their present ude as a marina,
launch ramp or other water-
front business, and help keep
the state's waterways accessi-
ble to all Floridians.

condominium development,"
said BoatU.S. Vice President
of Government Affairs
Margaret Podlich. "It's only a
matter of time before a mari-
na, fishing operation or other
water-dependent business
succumbs to the crushing tax
, burden.
It's simply bad math that
doesn't add up for boaters,
water-dependent businesses,
or anyone interested in pre-
serving the state's maritime
heritage and dwindling water-
front access."
Amendment 6 simply
states the following marine
venues and working water-
fronts will be taxed at the
property's current use:
Marinas and docks open
to the public for access and
recreational uses
Public vessel launches
into navigable waterways.
Commercial fishing facil-
ities
Water-dependent marine
manufacturing facilities
Marine vessel construc-
tion and repair facilities
Florida cannot afford to
lose any more access, and its
marine industry, which con-
tributes $18 billion to the
state's economy and provides
220,000 jobs. Unlike other
businesses, these operations
cannot relocate. It's ironic


that a state known for its
world-class recreational boat-
ing could have such a self-
defeating measure in its tax
code.
The amendment was intro-
duced by the Taxation and
Budget Reform Commission
and is supported by a large
coalition of organizations
including the Marine

South Florida, Marine

. October chill:


've been breathlessly anticipating the
opportunity to light our fireplace and
christen the arrival of cool, mid-autumn
nights. For the past several days I've
watched, gleeful as a child on Christmas morn-
ing, the mercury dip lower and lower in the
evenings and the early morning hours. We've
thrown open the windows and turned off the
central air and snuggled beneath blankets and
comforters in the airy late October chill. Now
all that remains is to kindle the first flames of
the season.
I hasten to write this because that is my
plan for the evening. The kindling and wood
has been selected and is ready for the burn.
Fat, crisp Rome apples wait on the kitchen
counter to be cored, packed with cinnamon
and brown sugar and baked. Stout mugs will
soon brim with steaming cider. Plump marsh-
mallows soon will be skewered and held near
the fire until they're tan and crispy on the out-
side and as sweet and sticky as warm honey
inside. Afghan comforters wait with the soft
embrace of intimate friends and lovers.
Favorite books appear like welcome guests no
matter how many times they visit
The shadows are long as crisp, late October
creeps toward the first wispy frost of Novem-
ber that will trim patches of rooftop in a soft,
white patina and etch frail, icy curlicues on the
car windshields. We'll sit late into the night and
read and communicate without the sometimes
awkwardness of words, in the fashion of those
who've been married a long time. The dogs will
find comfortable spots on the rug, then curl up
and settle in, noses tucked into underbellies as

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


No on Amendment 2
It is true that we would not be here if God had
created only Adam and Adam (Peggy Stanton's
"Vote Yes on Amendment 2," Oct 22), but are not
gay men and lesbian women God's creatures,
entitled to the same dignity and respect as all
God's children? Amendment 2 should be reject-
ed. Here are some of the reasons:
First, Amendment 2 is not needed to prohib-
it homosexual marriage in Florida. A Florida
statute has already accomplished that purpose;
homosexual marriage is illegal in Florida. Why
would we want to insert "legalized discrimina-
tion" into our Constitution when it is not neces-
sary to do so?
Also, the language of the proposed amend-
ment goes well beyond the stated purpose of its
proponents to prohibit gay marriage. What it
does, as a matter of law, is prohibit any significant
legally sanctioned non-marriage relationship for
anyone, homosexual or heterosexual. For exam-
ple, many of our older citizens who are lonely and
seek companionship literally cannot afford to
marry, since with remarriage they would lose the
Social Security benefits they rely on and which
they receive based on their deceased spouses'
lifelong employment.
Society has responded .i many; parts ,of-
Florida with civil registries that permit such cou-
ples to accept responsibility for each other in
important ways without losing that income they
"earned" through a lifetime of support for their
spouses and families.
Most of these recipients are women who
worked all their lives in the homfie, raising their
children and providing a wonderful environment
for their "breadwinning" husbands. They deserve
more respect than the elimination of the legal
structure that allows them to visit their partners
in the hospital and make life and death deci-
sions for them when necessary. Make no mis-
take, no civil relationship will be legal in Florida
if this amendment passes.
Homosexual couples are, by and large, aver-
age Americans living quiet, dignified lives all
over our country, often in suburban houses they
struggle to buy, seeking the American dream.
Who gains if we deny them any legal rights at all
for their relationship? Why ever would we not.
want the lives of these couples to be as stable and
balanced as possible? Why would we want to
deny then the health care benefits heteiosexu-
al couples enjoy? Why would we want to deny
them legal protections for their joint assets, the
right to make life and death decisions for their
partners, the right to live with dignity and
respect? How is it that we heterosexuals are
diminished by granting civil rights to fellow
Americans which are designed to make their
lives easier and more dignified and our com-
munities more stable?
Additionally, thereis no legal validity to Ms.
Stanton's assertion that if gay marriage were
legal the state or courts 'could force religious
authorities to perform marriages considered
sinful in the theology of their churches or give
up the right to perform marriages. Determining
the requirements for religious~.narriage would
remain the sole prerogative of the church itself.
Separation of church and state would remain a
major tenet of our constitution.,'That argument
is a red herring.
Finally, whether or not gay couples efijoy any
sort of rights in their relationship is completely
irrelevant to how a woman married or single
conceives a child. Conception aided by sci-
ence "commercial" childbirth to Mrs. Stanton
has been a godsend to many married couples
that have been brokenhearted by their inability
to conceive naturally. While some may reject
these procedures on moral grounds, many more
view such pregnancies as the greatest gifts from
God. President Bush i-ecently hosted a large
gathering of young children born of "adopted
embryos." He praised the process that led to
such children's conception as the morally correct
action. Whatever your personal moral prefer-
ence, commercialism it-is not. Every child is
God's child.
Vote No on amendment 2. We only diminish


ourselves when we seek to deny to a minority the
rights and dignity we enjoy as the majority.
Geraldeen G. Chester
Yulee
Yes on Amendment2
Why is traditional marriage, which Amend-
ment 2 is designed to protect, so important?
Simply stated, one man and one woman in a lov-
ing, committed, relationship is the definition for
marriage given by God from the beginning. God
created Adam and Eve, and the two became one
flesh in marriage. This unique relationship for
marriage has been understood, accepted and
practiced among all civilized peoples and nations
throughout recorded history. ,
We are a nation founded by men who feared
God and established law and government based
upon Judeo-Christian principles and practices.
The results are abundantly evident. No nation in
history has enjoyed the level of freedom, peace
and prosperity for as long as we have. The bibli-
cal model for marriage has clearly served us
well. Strong families produce strong communities,
strong states and a strong nation. Amendment 2
is all about protecting biblical marriage from
those who wish to redefine it.
Some have argued that a redefinition of mar-
riage only affects those that choose to participate.
Not so. Consider two recent examples:
In California, where "same-sex marriage"
has been declared legal by the courts, a group of
public school first- and second-graders were
taken on a field trip to the local courthouse to wit-
ness the "marriage" of their teacher to her female
partner. Justifying her decision, a school spokes-
person referred to the ceremony as "a teachable
moment," given the new legality of such rela-
tionships.'
In Massachusetts, a boy brought home a
"diversity" booklet given to students of his kinder-
garten class. The. book promoted, among other
things, children in households headed by same-
sex couples. When the boy's parents, who object-
ed to the booklet material, requested from school
officials the right to opt their child out of similar
teachings in the future, their request was denied,
citing the authority of the school to teach that
which is legal in its state, regardless of parental
objections.
Like Florida, Massachusetts and California
had state marriage laws on the books, but the will
of the people and its legislators have been
trumped by a judicial few, setting the stage for
what is now occurring. Public education is now
shaping a different world view for children in
these two states, without regard to the will and
rights of their parents. Don't be fooled into believ-
ing that this wouldn't happen as well in Florida if
Amendment 2 fails.
Passing Amendment 2 will not result in the
loss of rights or benefits, as some have claimed.
The Florida Supreme Court has reviewed the
amendment and rebuffed those arguments.
Passage will simply take the existing state mar-
riage law and place it into the constitution, pre-
venting judges from redefining marriage from the
bench.
Help preserve the God-ordained institution
of marriage which has served us so well. Vote Yes
on Amendment 2.

I would like to voice another viewpoint on
the issue.
This country and its laws were founded on
Christian principles. The Bible is pretty clear
about what constitutes a marriage and marriage
is a Christian institution. With that said, what
"couples," heterosexual, homosexual or lesbian,
do is between them and God. The Bible also
gives us two laws: Love thy Lord, thy God with all
thy heart... and Love your neighbor as yourself.
If you do these, all other laws are followed. If we
all followed these, our world would be a great
place to live.
As odd as it may seem, there really is no dis-
crepancy between following these biblical laws
and the problem created for "different" couples.

:The problem lies not with the Christian institution
of marriage but the civil laws that affect them.
Unmarried couples can handle most problems,
like rights to visit and make decisions for signif-
icant others in the effect of illness (medical
durable power of attorney works), or keeping
the home you bought together should one die
(joint tenancy), etc. As I see it, the real problems
come into play with our civil laws particularly
in three areas. They are taxes, insurance and
pensions.
So instead of changing what marriage is, lets
lobby our state and federal legislators to change
those laws. The "Fair Tax" eliminates the need to
file "married" for federal income taxes let's do
it. It benefits everyone, poor, middle class and
rich, evenly.
Let's get those insurance laws changed so
that "life partners," and families that may have
adult children and their families living in one
household, can get "family" health insurance cov-
erage or benefit from life insurance (without hav-
ing to pay income taxes on it).
As I see it, it's the laws that are the problem,
not the Christian institution of marriage. Those
couples that live in the secular world do not need
the sanction of the biblical one.

Letter of commendation
With humility, sincerity and joy I would like
to commend the response letter of Taylor C.
White ("Democracy,'" Oct. 24) to my letter on the
end of democracy (Oct. 17). Had Mr. White been
in my class at the high school he would have
earned an A+ from me not only because he is cor-
rect on all points, but also because his letter is
exceptionally well written. It .is a joy to find a
high school senior thinking and writing so well.
There is hope for our collective future with such
young men graduating this year. I sincerely wish
him well. I find him to have admirably bested me.

Vegan diet
A study of 16,000 people in 52 countries in the
current issue of Circulation found that eating
meat, fried foods and salty snacks raised the risk
of a heart attack by 35 percent. Conversely, a
diet rich in fruits and vegetables reduced the,
risk of a heart attack by 30 percent.
Again, a 24-year study of 88,517 female nurs-
es in the April 14 issue of Archives of Internal
Medicine found, that those who ate lots of fruits,
vegetables, whole grains and plant-based pro-
teip were 24 percent less likely to have a heart
attack and 18 percent less likely to have a stroke
than those addicted to a typical American diet.
With the cost of medical care becoming a
national crisis, it's high time for each of us to
assume more responsibility for our own and our

Ifyou or someone you know
Victims of domestic violence are not always
physically abused. Patterns of emotional, verbal
and economic abuse are also intended to exert
power and control over the victim. In these dif-
ficult economic times, economic victimization
further forces a victim to stay in a dangerous sit-
uation. If you or someone you know chooses to
stay in an abusive relationship right now, for
whatever reason, there are things to increase
your safety and the safety of your children while
at home.
If you choose not to leave right now, keep
important phone numbers such as doctor, lawyer,
schools, family and friends where you or your chil-
dren can get to them in an emergency. If you
get into an argument with your abuser, go to a
room or area that has an exit. Try to stay away
from the bathroom, kitchen or garage or any-
where else where weapons might be available.
Teach your children to call 911 for help if they are
afraid someone will be hurt.
If your partner leaves, change the locks on
your doors or ask your landlord to change the
locks. Tell your neighbors that your partner no
longer lives with you and they should call the
police if they see your partner near your home.
Let someone know if you feel violence is about to
happen.
Think of places to go if you were to leave -
don't write them down. If you decide to leave, find
a safe place where your abuser won't discover you
and call (904) 225-9979 which is a 24-hour hotline
and can help develop a safety plan.
If you have a friend who is a victim of domes-
tic violence, there are things you can personally
do to help them. Your friend's first step to safety
could be the assurance that he or she is not alone
and that you believe her or him. Let your friend
know that there are resources to get help. Be sup-
portive and patient, and respect your friend's
confidentiality. Encourage your friend to develop
a safety plan by calling the 24-hour hotline.
Do not confront the abuser and do not leave
voicemails, send e-mails or leave brochures about
abuse. Monitor your communications with your
friend and encourage them to call the hotline.
As October comes to a close, so does
Domestic Violence Awareness Month, although
you are asked to be aware throughout the year.
For more information, safety planning or help
with a friend, call Micah's Place 491-6364. '

Limo ride h

Lord, bind the serpents and release
the doves; bind this child in your sweet
love. In your will is where she belongs.
Keep her in the dark of night and give
her sweet dreams till the morning light.
And if she goes astray, please show her
the way back to your heart.
A whole lot of love was shared with
Arlecia Bostick for her 16th birthday.
She began her celebration early last
Friday morning with a visit from her
mother and sisters, bringing flowers,
balloons, candy, hugs and kisses. After
arriving to school, there were more bal-
loons, candy and flowers from her moth-
er, Carlesa Alexander.
As any mother, her mother loves her
and has taught Arlecia how to listen and
really hear, to speak softly against her
fears, ask God to give her sight so that
she can see what her life is meant to be
and to bless her heart with lots of love
and to always remember how proud she
is of her.
For her Sweet 16 celebration, she
desired to go out to dinner with a few of
her friends. Her grandmother began
thinking of how to put this together. A
phone call to her godparents got things
going. Willie and Laura Yvette live in
Texas but made a commitment to make
things happen in Florida.
Plans were made for a limo ride of
10. Then her grandmother located a car
from Jay Limousine. They had what was
needed a 24-passenger limo. The sur-
prise was planned for Saturday evening


highlights a
"" .Y for 24 friends. When
.:. the limo arrived, the
party Was on. It came

.. "" day package bal-
loons, flowers, lighted
tiara, surround sound,
S gifts and "champagne"
(sparkling grape juice).
The pouring of the
NOW AND "champagne" with
THEN long-stemmed crystal
glasses was done by
the limo driver, Jay
Maybelle Ellis.
Kirkland The party rolled on
for four hours of enjoy-
ment with a stop off at Ruby Tuesday for
dinner, then around town, including The
Landing. Her brother, Marquez
Davidson, and aunt, Felicia Green, came
home from college to help her cele-
brate. Other family and friends were
Shamika Alberta, Terrin Dallas, Dejuan
Hightower, Keondra Johnson, Taylor
Sanders, Tammy Melton, Shanice
Sanders, Ashley Reese, Jasmen Lewis,
Dianna Blue, Devron Wingard, Semaj
Patterson, Trinity Marshall, Peggy
Quarterman, Tianna Gaskins and, of
course, the birthday girl, who says,
'Thank you to those who attended and
also to those who at least tried to come.
This weekend showed me how much
love your family and friends can give to
you. I really enjoyed myself, especially
the limo ride from home.


Sweet 16th

"I would also like to thank my par-
ents, godparents and grandparents,
Craig and Maybelle Brown, and thanks
to all of you for all the phone calls, text
messages and gifts. I will always have
memories of my 16th birthday."
A surprise birthday celebration was
given for Sharon Jamison on her birth-
day by the youth department of First
Missionary Baptist Church, where she
serves as youth directress. She was
detained at work until the youth got
things ready, thanks to Veronica
London, Leroy Dawson and Pamala
Wilcox. The youth showed their talent
and love, saying, "We appreciate you."
Jamison said she was surprised and
appreciated what the youth had done.
Her mother, Jeanette Brown, and son,
Xavier Johnson, were there. Other fami-
ly members, including three grand-
daughters, one of whom was celebrating
on grandmother's, little Michaela Veal,
also celebrated her birthday.
The family of the late Verna Bell says
thanks for all acts of kindness shown to
them during their hours of bereavement
and pray God's continued blessings to
each of you.

Live Dangerously?


There are many unnecessary risks in life where there
is no "payoff" for the risks taken. Not wearing our seat belt AI
is like that. What we gain by not wearing our seat belt is
negligible compared to the risk assumed; the second or two
which we may gain by not buckling up is hardly worth '
it if we are injured in an an accident. Taking risks
like that with our life is tantamount to being
unappreciative of God's ift of life. But, some risks
have a potential payoff that is considerable compared to
the risk assumed. Asking someone for a date can 1,---- -- .'..- -.:,

us is a definite risk, but the payoff of
potential friendship or love is worth the risk.
Life is a precious gft and we ought not to ris-
it unnecessarily, but there are often payoffs tc
taking risks. Each day we should consider the
risks and the possible rewards, and calculate
our odds wisely.

Leaky ducts waste


more than just energy


For the News-Leader

With rising costs of elec-
tricity coming at a particularly
difficult time for its customers,
Florida Power and Light Co. is
committed to operating effi-
ciently and helping customers
become more energy-efficient
as well.
A leaky duct system is one
possible factor that can lead to
a higher bill. In fact, two-thirds
of all homes have leaky ducts
that go undetected. Even if the
air conditioning unit is in good
shape, leaky ducts can cause
air to escape, wasting energy
and costing more money.
Identifying leaky ducts is
fairly easy to do, and with FPL's
help, it is fast and affordable.
FPL customers who call to
schedule a duct analysis per-
formed by an FPL Energy
Expert receive a complete
report of repairs needed and a
list of independent contractors
qualified to make the repairs.
Additionally, FPL offers its cus-
tomers incentives to help cover
the cost of repairs. FPL servic-
es approximately 15, 600 resi-
dential and 1,900 business cus-

A Halloween lioness


Circle of life. Halloween is
here and what do I need to
know? It is very simple. What
my granddaughters are going
to be on the magical night!
Memories flood in. First what
would I be all those girlish years
ago? Then it was my three boys.
Now, my granddaughters. One
is two and a half and she gets to
say. Most recently when I asked
she planned to be a lioness. Not
a lion. A lioness.
My other granddaughter
doesn't get to say. Parents rule.
She is too young to determine
her persona come the night of
nights. Traveling from errand
to errand last week, I listened to
NPR as they covered Halloween
and what might be the most
popular costume this year.
Would you believe Joe the
Plumber and the two presiden-
tial candidates du jour?
Halloween is'everywhere.
We pass the pumpkins spread
on the ground at roadside
stands. Innocently shopping for
broccoli, we are faced with
mountains of candy. As each
Halloween approaches, we try
hard to wait until the last minute
and buy just enough candy. We


avoid the
candy bars
we love like
Reese's
Peanut But-
ter Cups, but
our trick-or-
treaters know
we can be
depended on
FROM no fruit.
THE Some
PORCH years the wait
is too long.
The Big Guy
Dickie gets caught in
Anderson the act. An
errant Snick-
ers wrapper betrays him. I do
not scold. I find the stash.
The air is getting a little cool-
er. We grab a jacket and sweater
as we go out the door and notice
it is darker later in the morning
and earlier in the evening. Fall
is here. It's not the dramatic
scene change we remember
from our years as Yankees. Our
Southern falls are more subtle.
I treasure the kiss of cool air as
my dogs skip out the back door
each morning. Big Guy and I
remember those autumns of
years ago. Cold blustery winds

would blow the last leaves off
the trees. The skeleton silhou-
ettes of stripped trees stood as
testimony that winter was on
the way. The leaves would cre-
ate colorful crazy quilts waiting
to be raked and burned or
sucked into the vacuum cleaner
trucks sent around by the city.
We all knew that the Pandora's
box of winter was just around
the corner.
Now, life is easier. Our island
wardrobes transition from the
pastels of summer to the neu-
trals and darker shades of win-
ter.
What a great time of year.
The first of a series of celebra-
tions. We are greeted by moun-
tains of pumpkins begging to
be bought and carved. Bumpy
gourds in the unmistakable col-
ors of fall keep the pumpkins
company. We smile as we hear
of grandchildren, their cos-
tumes and the circle of life.
Transition, treasure it.

able at local book and gift stores

HEATHER. PERRY
News-Leader
Daniel Foster joined the orig-
inal Boys & Girls Club at Yulee
Middle School, seeking home-
work assistance. He was named
Youth of the Year in 2006.
Foster believes going to the
Boys and Girls Club changed
his life.
"If I hadn't become a mem-
ber back in the seventh grade,
I would probably not be going to
college. It taught me how to be
responsible, respectful and to
make the smart decisions."
Foster continued his Boys
and Girls Club affiliation after
high school graduation, working
part-time. He was awarded the
FCCJ David Miller Scholarship
to assist with his tuition at FCCJ.
Now Foster can be seen


helping youth
live good life-
styles by
Resisting to-
| bacco, alcohol
and drugs
.and abstain-
ing from sex
ual activity as
Foster part of the
Smart Moves
program.
Working in the Drama and
Music Department at the Miller
Club, Foster says he considers
many of the kids, their families
and the staff as his extended
family.
"Daniel uses creativity in his
program curriculum to rein-
force positive concepts that
draw out each member's self-
perceptions and abilities," said
Jamie Thompson, program


director, Miller Boys and Girls
Club.
"Daniel has a passion for our
youth of today," she said. "He is
flexible and willing to go that
extra mile. We are very fortu-
nate to have him as a staff mrem-
ber."
The Nassauville native and
son of Kathie and Donnie Foster
is studying for an associates
degree at FCCJ. He intends to
transfer to UNF to study sports
broadcasting and journalism.
Leisure activities include par-
ticipating in church activities,
watching NASCAR and NFL,
singing, acting and trying out
for American Idol. Foster has a
sister, Mariah Foster Everson, a
hound dog named Yeagar, cock-
atiel named Chevy and a 29-gal-
lon tropical fish tank.

The Fernandina Beach High
School N.J.R.O.T.C. unit fol-
lowed down the streets of his-
toric Fernandina on Oct. 10,
behind fire truck squadrons
that kicked off this year's annu-
al community homecoming
parade.
Senior Cadet Kayla Crews
and sophomore cadets Dylan
Cumberland, Mathew Kitchens
and Austin Smith patriotically
displayed the colors of the
United States' flag and Florida's
state flag as they were the first
of the 37 R.O.T.C. cadets to rep-
resent the unit As a tradition for
the unit to march in each home-
coming parade, this year was
no exception.
After school let out Friday
afternoon, the cadets readily
headed toward the American
Legion, .near Central Park, to
muster before the beginning of
the parade. The R.O.T.C. unit
in the parade consisted of the
color guard presenting the
flags, the annual R.O.T.C. ban-
ner which is used every year
by the unit and carried this year
by freshmen cadets Turner and
Bryant Thompson, an armed
drill platoon led by junior Cadet
Petty Officer First Class
Michael Robinson, an unarmed
drill platoon led by sophomore


timing cake
Cadet Ensign Morgan Gose,
and the R.O.T.C. units "Pirate's-
Go-To-College" float driven by
Jimmy Dubberly, head of the
Parent Booster Club.
The R.O.T.C. unit of FBIHS is
involved in events within the
community and supports school
affairs on a regular basis, keep-
ing the unit up with a good rep-
utation. Events such as beach
cleanup, car washes and sup-
porting all FBHS athletic teams
are some of the numerous
events the unit helps out with.
Because of the cadets' commit-
ment to the unit and the unit's
dedication to the community,
their spirit is seen all around.
As these cadets show their
duty to their unit, it was recog-
nized enough by others to
honor the unit with the
Homecoming Club Spirit Award
during the homecoming varsity
football game during half time
against the Interlachen Rams.
Ecstatic, the group of cadets
supporting the football team on
the end zone ran across the field
to accept the trophy. After
receiving the plaque, overjoyed,
cadets Dylan Cumberland and
cadet Steven Millen raised cadet
Commanding Officer Thomas
Tompkins, who was gripping
the trophy, over their shoulders
and paraded him back to the
end zone.

Conditions were cold and windy and

"I am very proud of my girls, and
glad my seniors were able to have

Don't let Halloween end with a tragedy


According to the National-
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, children are
four times more likely to be
fatally struck by an automobile on
Halloween than any other day qf the
year. Data collected over the last 25
years indicates that there is an average
of four children killed by contact with an
automobile on Halloween per year.
Think about that for a second. When
you head out with the kids on
Halloween, you probably would never
think about your night ending tragically.
However, according to 25-year averages,
four children are going to die after
being struck by a car on Halloween.
Children are especially at risk for
several reasons. First of all, it is obvious
they simply are not watching where
they are going. The excitement of run-
ning from house to house and filling
their bags with candy is all they can
think about. However, even if they are
paying attention, a child's "field of
vision" tends to be about a third less
than adults and they are simply less
aware of what is going on around them.
If you are a driver out on Halloween,
slow down. I have been on the street
with my kids and it amazes me some-
times how fast people drive by when
kids are in the area. If you are driving in
a neighborhood, just assume the kids
are out there and be careful. Remember,


just as there are four
children who get hit,
there are four drivers
who hit them. Don't be
*. one of them.'
S Experts say parents
and drivers tend to
overestimate a child's
ability to navigate
oncoming traffic.
Children process
SPORTS sound and direction
differently than adults
MEDICINE and often do not easily
GREGORY anticipate from which
direction a car might
SMITH, M.D. be approaching and
therefore cannot quick-
ly plan an escape.
Furthermore, children also have a
greater difficulty judging speed and dis-
tance of approaching cars, making it
more difficult for them to get out of the
way. Experience may also be a factor
here because there are few times that
children tend to be out walking the
streets after dark. Make sure your kids
know your rules about crossing the
street, looking for cars, and have them
carry a flash light or glow stick so that
drivers are better able to see them.
It is also very important that parents
use good judgment when taking the
kids out on Halloween. Certainly you
should plan on having enough chaper-


ones based on the number of children in
your group. For example, one parent
cannot keep up with 10 kids.
It is also imperative that you stick to
your rules. "Just because it's
Halloween" is not an excuse to allow
yourself to do things that you normally
would not allow. I remember vividly
when I was a surgical intern a young
girl had been critically injured and was
brought to the trauma center. She and
her friends had been trick or treating
and, between stops, the kids would
climb onto the hood of the car of the
"responsible parent," who would then
slowly drive to the next house. Sadly,
the little girl had slipped, falling in front
of the car, as she was run over by her
own mother. Had it not been for a terri-
ble lapse in her mother's judgment, the
little girl would still be alive.
Halloween is supposed to be fun, but
remember it can be very, very danger-
ous. Keep a close watch on your chil-
dren and be careful out there.

Redfish action red hot


bull reds have been
coming from many of
Amelia Island's popu-
lar fishing waters. The south-
ern tip of Amelia Island has
been a real hot spot in recent
days for surf fishermen tar-
geting the falling tide for big
reds. Plenty of finger mullet
-are running
along both
the river and
the ocean
sides of the
southern tip
of Amelia
Island and
are easily
captured
ON THE within a six-
foot cast net.
-WATER Once a
few live mul-
TERRY let are placed
LACOSS in a live bait
w...r bucket, a live
mullet is
barbed and cast out into the
falling tide using a Fish
Finder setup.
You won't have to look to
far to see where the best spot
is to cast your live mullet, as
several local surf fishermen
will more than likely be fish-
ing where the best action is
available.
Surf fishing at th4 south-
ern tip of Amelia Island is also
giving up good catches of sea
Strut and flounder during the
fallingtide. Weekend surf
fishermen will find an excel-
lent tide during the morning
with a flood tide arriving at 7
a.m. and a low tide arriving at
1 p.m.
Once again, a big run of
bull reds is taking place at
many of Amelia Island's popu-
lar fishing holes. The tip of
the St. Marys south jetty
rocks has been red hot dur-
ing the last few hours of the
falling tide.
Capt. Danny Flynn recent-
ly guided a fishing party to
the tip of the St Marys jetty
rocks and found a big school
of reds weighing to 30 pounds
v illing-to bend his charter
customer's fishing rods.
Capt. Bill Supplee has also
been enjoying the big red
drum run at the mouth of
Tiger Basin where the first of

of the St. Marys south jetty rocks.


the flood tide is also produc-
ing big reds up to 30 pounds.
Flounder fishing should
also be excellent at the foot-
steps of Fort Clinch this
weekend. Look for the morn-
ing falling tide to harbor the
best action for flatfish that
could easily weigh over the
10-pound mark.
Sea trout are running at
the riverside of the St. Marys
jetty rocks- during the falling
tide. Drift a live shrimp up
close to the jetty rocks where
there is a low area in the
rocks. Adjust your trout float .
so that the live shrimp is drift-
ing just off from the bottom.
Recent cold air has


dropped water temperatures
offshore where a good bite of
black sea bass, red snapper
and gag grouper should take
place this weekend. Look for
Haddock's Hideaway,
Schultz's Fish Market, East
FC and FA fish havens to
offer some of the best bottom
fishing action for the week-
end.

ages local anglers to submit

Thrill of a 'standing O' at Carnegie Hall


For the News-Leader
Carnegie Hall in New York
City is one of the most leg-
endary and intimidating
venues for singer/song-
writers, especially when they're
more familiar with intimate set-
tings and the slower pace of life in
the South.
Though Buddy Greene had
performed for years with Jerry
Reed, and with Bill Gaither at his
"Homecoming" concerts, the invi-
tation to join Gaither at Carnegie
Hall in 2002 was "the thrill of a life-
time." After some easy banter with
Gaither, Greene proceeded to
mesmerize the audience with his
prowess as a harmonica player.
(Listen for yourself; go to
YouTube.com and search for
"Buddy Greene Carnegie Hall.")
The standing ovation at the end of
a performance was all he could
have hoped for.
Harmonica is but one of
Greene's many talents. He picked
up his first instrument a ukulele
- at age 10, and now, after a life-
time devoted to music, is one of
Nashville's finest guitar pickers
and songwriters, with a number of


hit songs (like the holiday stan-
dard "Mary, Did You Know?") and
14 albums to his credit. Greene,
who grew up in Macon, Ga.,
brings a wide variety of southern
Americana influences to his music
to create a unique hybrid of Cajun,
Irish, country, bluegrass, folk,
gospel and traditional blues. His
latest project, "Happy Man," is a
musical feast, overflowing with
heroic harmonica playing, stellar
guitar-picking, give-it-your-all
singing and outright fun!
Listening to his music results
in a good kind of "restless leg syn-
drome" when you can't help but
tap your toes to the music. Says
Greene, "I just wanted to have fuhr


with some really talented friends,
play a bunch of old and new songs
I never get tired of playing, and
remember why I ever wanted to
be a musician in the first place."
Greene first came to Amelia
Island with his family in 1984,
seeking a change of pace from the
hectic and stressful music scene in
Nashville. He and his wife, Vicki,
would cherish their time at the
beach and stroll the quiet streets
of downtown Fernandina Beach,
When his in-laws bought a condo
at the Sandpiper complex next to
Peters Point, visits to the island
became an annual affair.
Though he would be here only
a week or two each year, he gradu-


ally came to know more and more
"locals" like Alan and Tullye
Ralph, who encouraged him to
find a place to perform. But he
always maintained a clear distinc-
tion between family time and
work, never allowing his perform-
ance schedule to interfere with
the family's time together unless
there was something in it for
them, like an Alaskan cruise or
trip to Disney World.
It wasn't until he met Mark and
Donna Paz Kaufman, hosts of the
popular "Evening of Story &
Song" concert series, that he was
willing to appear for a local per-
formance on Saturday, Nov. 8.
With the confidence and skill of
a seasoned performer, Greene
delights his audiences, whether
he's on Manhattan Island or
Amelia Island. Dave Higgs,
Nashville Public Radio program
host, had this to say about Greene:
"Not only do you deftly and
expertly traverse a number of
musical genres, you do something
that few performers ever come
really close to doing, at least on a
consistent basis: you spread sheer,
unabashed joy in every song you
play and sing."


Five wines fitfor a Thanksgiving feast


ROBERT M. WEINTRAUB
For the News-Leader
Thanksgiving Day is a time for
family fun, and the wine should be
fun, also. No need to stress over
what wine to serve. I usually put
two on the table a red and a bold
white to meet different prefer-
ences. Here are five wines to
select from, three reds and two
whites, all priced under $20.
All these wines are available by
the glass (taste before you buy) or
bottle locally at Canopy Moon, the
late night bistro on Third Street
near Ash between the Bright _
Mornings restaurant and Amelia
Sanjon Gallery.
Whether you're serving turkey
or ham, you'll want a light and live-
ly wine. Heavy cabernet,
Bordeaux, zinfandel, syrah/shiraz
or such will have too much tannin
and strong flavors for the light
meat Pinot noir, Beaujolais and
Chianti are three reds that have
the right weight.
The best pinot noir these days
is coming from New Zealand's
south island where the climate is
cool enough to allow the grapes to
mature properly. Warmer climates
tend to produce jammy pinots
because of an excess of sugar in
the grapes. One of my favorite
Kiwi pinots is The Jibe, a vibrant
wine from grapes grown in coastal
Marlborough vineyards, perched
on the edge of Cook Strait, a
renowned sailing spot.
(For those who need a quick


sailing lesson, to jibe
means to shift a sail from
one side of a boat to the
other to change direction.
To reinforce the theme,
the attractive labels on
The Jibe bottles are in
the shape of a sail.
Sailing is a national pas-
time in New Zealand, a
country that has twice
won the America's Cup
S-in 1995 and 2000-
and boasts the highest
ownership of boats per
capital in the world.)
The Jibe pinot noir
is a silky, elegant and
sophisticated wine, with a
youthful and refreshing flavor of
ripe plums, cherries and raspber-
ries. The palate is soft and bal-
anced, layered with complex
nuances of mushroom, spice and
smoky oak. Ruby red with brilliant
clarity, its ample acidity holds up
well to the bold tastes of
Thanksgiving dinner.
Chianti may be a strange wine
to recommend for Turkey Day,
but a good wine made under speci-
fications of the Gallo Nero (black
rooster) commune in the Chianti
District of Tuscany will be a mild,
yet complex wine, due to the mel-
lowing of the sangiovese grape
with 10-20 percent merlot or white
wine. Castello d'Albola Chianti
Classico is a favorite of mine with
grapes grown on a gravely hill
near Sienna. Its color is brilliant
garnet red that with age becomes


brick red.
w 4 E_ & This wine
INE Tis intense,
elegant
and vel-
vety with
delicate
scents of violets.Dry, full, round
and balanced with hints of
almonds and toasted wood. It has
a long finish. Allow it to "breathe"
for a few minutes and a distinct
note of dark chocolate will devel-
op. This Chianti Classico accompa-
nies many meat dishes, especially
roasted and braised. It is also per-
:cl, w'.i he- .i aged at great
lengtll. particularly those with
rather piquant flavors.
Beaujolais is a perennial
favorite for Thanksgiving because
of its light-to-medium body and
fruity character. Beaujolais nou-
veau reaches markets just before
Thanksgiving and so is often seen
on holiday tables. However, I think
the young wine is too light and
lively to handle the complex fla-
vors of turkey or ham with all the
fixings, and so I prefer an aged
Beaujolais. This wine is made
from the gamay grape in the
Rhone Valley of France where
there are many small farms, with
few large enough to bottle enough
wine to be profitable. Instead, con-
solidators buy grapes and produce
the wines. Louis Jadot is one of
them and arguably the most con-
sistent. Many of the farms have
joined together into communes
where they can control the quality


of the grape. Wines from these
communes are called Beaujolais
Villages, and tend to be better (at
least consistently good) than other
Beaujolais.
Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages
is a very dark reddish-violet wine.
Its aromas and flavors are classic
Beaujolais: Juicy strawberries and
clean, "dusty" earthy notes, crisp
and mouth-watering, refreshing
and balanced. About 30 minutes in
the refrigerator brings it to a per-
fect serving temperature.
I always have a bottle of ries-
ling on the Thanksgiving table; it's
off-dry, full-bodied flavi '.%urks
very well with turkey and ham.
This grape also likes cooler cli-
mates so the best rieslings come
from Alsace in France and our
Pacific northwest. Some excellent
rieslings are also coming from
New Zealand. They are not sweet
like German and California ries-,
lings.
One of my favorite Amencan
wineries is Kings Estate near
Eugene, Ore. The beautiful estate
is certified organic and includes
465 acres of organic vineyards as
well as 30 acres of fruits, vegeta-
bles and flowers. The estate is
crowned by the charming,
European-style winery, where the
winemaking process is also certi-
fied organic.

will know the King Estate people

aroma of citrus and floral per-
. fume. It has a full fruit mouth-
feel of peaches, cantaloupe

S. The fifth wine I am recom-
mending is a local red: San

recently you could only get
the wine in St. Augustine, but
San Sebastian Reserva is now

This wine is made from
hybrids of Florida's bunch
grape, a subtropical variety
distinct from the European
grapes grown in cooler cli-
mates. San Sebastian
Reserva, with a balance of
fruit and oak, complements
poultry dishes and should do
well with ham. It is a fruit-for-
ward wine, a characteristic of
bunch wines.
