JIM PIERCE/FORTHE NEWS-LEADER GALEJAMEYSON/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Readers captured icy moments on camera during the cold spell this week. Jim Pierce caught the fountain on Centre Street outside the Nassau County Courthouse at its icy
best, with Felix Jones in the background touting his wares. Gale Jameyson shot the Lopiano fountain on Langsford Creek in Oyster Bay. Temperatures near 20 were the coldest
in six years, but it should warm up through the weekend.
ACLU: No gay club?
or sports either
MICHAEL PARNELL Rosenwald wrote on beh
If Nassau County Schools allow
extracurricular sports and activities
such as cheerleading, they must allow
a Gay-Straight Alliance club at Yulee
High School, according to a lawyer
for the American Civil Liberties Union.
The schools continue to refuse per-
mission to such a club, however, and
have not responded to the attorney's
latest threats of litigation, according to
schools Superintendent John Ruis.
Federal law provides that schools
must treat extracurricular activities
"A few of the more obvious organ-
izations that fit this definition are
sports teams, cheerleaders and pos-
sibly the yearbook," wrote attorney
Robert E Rosenwald, Jr., in a Dec. 19
letter. Ruis said the schools have not
replied to that letter.

After previous letters from the
ACLU, the schools suspended all "non-
curricular activities" pending a new
application and review process for all
school clubs and organizations. Ruis
said that process is proceeding, and
many of the clubs and organizations
have resumed activities under new
rules this semester.
But that action "raised additional
concerns," Rosenwald wrote.

Does vision for city's
future include a
cruise ship terminal?
Commissioner Ron Sapp and
Mayor Bruce Malcolm butted heads at
Tuesday's city commission meeting
on the effects that a potential cruise
ship terminal might have on the future
of Fernandina Beach - but Sapp did
not get much support from commis-
sioners for a resolution to prevent such
a terminal from being built here.
The disagreement occurred toward
the end of the meeting, when Sapp
said he was concerned about "unoffi-
cial discussions" that a cruise termi-
nal might be located here if it is reject-
ed in Mayport.
Sapp made it abundantly clear that
a cruise ship terminal does not fit his
vision of the future Fernandina Beach.
Malcolm defended his support for
a possible cruise terminal in
Fernandina Beach. He also was defen-
sive about statements he made on the
possible closing of the Smurfit-Stone
Container Corp. mill, one of
Fernandina Beach's largest employ-
Malcolm has said he is in favor of
replacing the factory on the north end
of the island, if it is closed, with a ter-
minal for cruise ships if that cannot be
located in Mayport. But he said

A group of Savannah, Ga., bicyclists disembark from the

across Amelia Island to Little Talbot Island State Park and on to
downtown Jacksonville. They left on the ferry the morning of Jan. 15
from St. Marys, Ga., above. The Savannah-Northeast Florida
Workshop on Wheels tour focuses attention on the need for trails to
support bicycle tourism.

children, passed away Saturday,
Jan. 17, 2009. She was 75.
She had been fighting can-
cer since March of this year but
left this Earth in her sleep due
to natural causes.
Lee Rubio was born in

After graduating she went
to nursing school and found her
first position as a Registered
Nurse at Mt. Sinai Memorial
Hospital on Miami Beach.
There she met Dr. Victor Rubio
while delivering babies; he

Cuba in the 1950's to escape the
Batista regime, returned to
Cuba in the late '50s with his
young family to briefly be part
of the Castro's government,

The family moved to
Georgia following this event so
Dr. Rubio could continue his
studies to become a psychia-

There were reports last

Company spokesmen have said
in the past the mill is one of

through December 2007, Zim-

boys in Hillsborough and

At times, Zimmerman pro-
vided instruction to the boys
concerning the poses they
should assume for the photos.
Zimmerman, formerly of Talla-

"Mr. Mayor, I take offense at
that," said Sapp. "If you look at

"So many things have start-

" and then they have a way of
working their way into actually

favor of something like this hap-
pening, you want to close that
door as quickly as you can."
But Malcolm noted that
Fernandina has historically
been a destination for both
packet ships and cruise ships
coming from New York.
"This town has an ancient
history of cruising," said
Malcolm. "And people coming
down from up North, it's not
something that hasn't happened
here in the past."
"Where do you want to take
the city?" asked Sapp. "This
(proposed) resolution is a won-
derful example of where you
want to take it. Where I want
to take this city doesn't include
cruise ships on that waterfront
out there. Maybe where you
want to take the city, cruise
ships fit very nicely."
"I don't want anybody with-
in the sound of my voice or eye-
shot thinking that I want that
mill closed up out there," said
Malcolm at the end of the meet-
ing. "They provide a wonderful
source of employment for this

essary to avoid litigation."

the new director of the Nassau
County State Attorney's Office,
Assistant State Attorney Wesley

not prosecute anyone charged
with violating Fernandina
Beach's controversial noise
"It's unconstitutional on its
face, and in how it's applied,"
White said Thursday. "It is
vague ... it invites arbitrary
All charges of violating the
city's noise ordinance have
been dropped, including sever-
al against the management of
the Green Turtle Tavern.
The decision cancels a hear-
ing that was to be held today at
1:30 p.m. on a motion to dis-
miss the charge against
Green Turtle manager Jeffrey
Werder's attorney, Teresa J.
Sopp, filed a motion to dismiss
charges against Werder, argu-
ing that the ordinance is uncon-
stitutional. White said he read
the motion, and he agrees.
"For example, in at least two
recent instances involving
enforcement of this ordinance,
different law enforcement agen-
cies investigating the same
claim of violating of the ordi-
nance came up with differing
opinions as to whether a citation
was merited," Sopp said in the
Not only have pending
charges been dropped against
alleged violators, but White said
the office will not prosecute
future charges of violating the
current noise ordinance.
"It is unconstitutional, and
we're not going to enforce it,"
Fernandina Beach Police
Chief Jim Hurley said he will
instruct his officers to contin-
ue to respond to noise com-
plaints, but instead of a misde-
meanor citation, complaints will
be documented and forwarded
to the city's code enforcement
"It's his decision, it's his dis-
cretion, and we respect that,"
Hurley said of White's
announcement. "We hope to
have a good working relation-
ship with the State Attorney's
Office on this particular issue ...
we're not looking for a fight,
we're looking for resolution and
we're looking for compliance."
A rift between next-door
neighbors the Green Turtle
Tavern and the Florida House
Inn has been going on for years.
The Green Turtle Tavern
racked up the most alleged
violations of the ordinance,
but other downtown Fernandina
Beach business, including
Pompeo's Italian Restaurant and
cited for viola-
tions as well.
W a r w i c k,
White owners of the
serves as a bar and a bed and
breakfast, say noise from bars is
getting out of hand in the down-
town area. In a letter last year to
Fernandina Beach City
Manager Michael Czymbor,
Diane Warwick said "the noise
cancer is spreading."
In a letter to city commis-
sioners and Czymbor, Candace
Fasano, owner of Celtic Charm
and an adjacent residential
apartment at 306 Centre St.,
"It is our position that the
current noise ordinance needs
to be upheld and enforced and
that businesses such as the
Green Turtle and Pompeo's
are clearly infringing on the
right to quiet enjoyment in a
mixed-use area," she wrote on
Fasano went on to say that
tenants in the apartment they
own at that same location had
asked to be let out of their lease
due to "completely out of control
... loud music and loud drunk
people" at Pompeo's.
Pompeo's owner, Mario
Manganaro, has also been
charged with violating the city's
noise ordinance in recent
months although he said noise
from his establishment has only
recently become an issue after
18 years of business in that loca-
tion on Centre Street.
He said with the economy
tanking nationwide - and in
downtown Fernandina Beach -
the city can't afford to drive
away business. And that, he
said, is what's happening when
businesses are shut down due
"We don't have too many
people who live in downtown
Fernandina Beach," he said. "I
have my karaoke out on the
patio and then I bring them
inside (if there's a complaint)."
But Manganaro says when
he is forced to bring the karaoke
inside his building from the out-
door patio, he loses "80 to 90
percent" of his business.
He thinks the noise ordi-
nance is bad for the local econ-
"They don't understand that
with the economy, everyone is
trying to make an extra dollar,"
he said. "... We have people
come here from South Georgia
... are we going to tell them not
to come anymore? I really don't
know, we struggle for business
and now they want us to shut

Nor'easters 'a necessary evil'
Although tropical storms
get all the glory in the sum-
mer, there is another type of
storm that wreaks havoc on
American shorelines during
the winter - nor'easters.
Each year between 25 and
30 nor'easters impact the east-
ern seaboard of the U.S., while
only four to five tropical storms
impact the coast, according to
Robert Dolan, a professor of
environmental sciences at the
University of Virginia.
These wild winter weather
events are notorious for pro-
ducing heavy snow and rain
and huge damaging waves that
crash onto Atlantic beaches,
often causing beach erosion,
coastal flooding and structural
damage. Surprisingly, Dolan
says, the most powerful wind
from a nor'easter can actually
exceed that of a hurricane.
Nor'easters are most preva-
lent between October and
April, when tropical storms are
taking a break from their active
season, which runs from June
"Another interesting point
about super nor'easters is that
they are, as a rule, larger than
the average tropical storms,
which means they impact a
larger segment of the coast,"
Dolan explained. "And the
duration of a nor'easter is two
to three times longer than that
of a tropical storm. Hurricanes
are generally more compact
and move a lot faster."
Although nor'easters are
quite common in the winter,
only a few are usually strong
enough to cause big problems
inland. Over the years, there
have been a few notorious
nor'easters, including the "Ash
Wednesday Storm of 1962" and
the "Blizzard of 1993" that
caused snow, tornadoes and
flooding from Alabama,
Georgia and Florida all the way
up to Maine. At its peak, the
storm reached from Canada to
Central America. Damage esti-
mates range from $3 billion to
"Although we don't take
much pleasure in the implica-
tions of these storms, both
tropical and middle latitude
storms play a very important
role in balancing the heat budg-
et of the planet," Dolan said.
"They are a necessary evil
with a job to do. But hold onto
your hats," Dolan said, "we are
moving into the 2009 severe
nor'easter season as b.. p..:''

I ust had the pleasure of reconnecting with
a college friend I haven't seen since grad-
uation. Jocelyn and I were English majors
and shared a common interest in litera-
ture and writing. The University of North
Florida was very much a commuter school
then. Most students had jobs and careers.
Jocelyn and I were no different.
I wasn't long out of the Navy - a young man
in my mid-twenties, going to college on the GI
Bill, holding down a job and starting a family.
Jocelyn was a career woman who decided to
go back to school. She was an elegant 40, but
from the admiring looks she got from lots of
guys on campus, you wouldn't have known.
She was also extremely intelligent, one of
those students who sets the "uh-oh" meter in
your class to running. She was witty, charm-
ing, hilarious and a great conversationalist. I
think she was pretty much running a hospital
public relations department by age 25 and she
didn't even get her degree until she and I
ended up in lit classes together at UNE
During our junior year, an adjunct journal-
ism professor persuaded us to "cross over."
It's considered apostasy in the field of litera-
ture when one of its disciples dabbles in jour-
nalism. I suppose it is a form of literary heresy.
Once upon a time, great writers actually
sprang forth from the newspaper business, but
those days are mostly gone. Jocelyn and I
were stubborn and independent, and we took
up journalism with an aim toward making it lit-
erature again. Before long, we were running
the college newspaper. Jocelyn was senior edi-
tor and I was news editor. We quickly set about
best of life for last
trying to bring some creative
writing and effervescence to
the stodgy student publica-
tion. Our humorous lampoon-
ing of some of the college fac-
ulty gained us some notoriety.
A faculty member whose last
named happened to be Pizza
was about to leave the employ
of the university. Our satire,
CUP OF headlined, "Pizza to go," land-
JOE ed us in the office of the pres-
ident. Suffice it to say that he
was not amused by our spoof.
Joe Palmer That there was some really
great writing in the piece did-
n't seem to impress him a whit.
And then we graduated. My academic advi-
sor called me in and told me that I had way
beyond the number of academic hours needed
to matriculate, that I couldn't simply go to col-
lege forever and that my GI Bill was about to
run dry. I was forced to order a cap and gown
and on a blustery December day in 1983, I
walked across the stage, accepted my sheep-
skin and shook the president's hand. I really
don't know if he smiled because he was proud
of me or if he was just glad to see me go.
Jocelyn had already graduated the semester
before me but we stayed in touch. After I grad-
uated, I had to go out and get my first post col-
lege career job and my old college buddy and
co-conspirator and I drifted apart.
A young man drinks life in great big gulps.
The glass is never going to run dry and every
day he gets roaring drunk quenching his thirst
for life. I'm at the point in my life now where I
sip life like a glass of vintage wine. The glass is
already less than half full and you never know
when it will be taken away from you before
you get one last sip. When it's taken off the
table, partner, that's it, supper's over. So I taste
it and I sip it and I swirl it around on my
tongue and close my eyes and breathe in its
intoxicating vapors and try to remember what
it was like to be a young buck with a bottom-
I'm writing more these days and one night
recently, I found myself thinking about
Jocelyn. I tracked her down and called her.
She lives on a 50-acre farm in the hills of East
Tennessee with her dogs and her cats and her
goat. She's going on 70 but still sounds as
young as she did when we graduated. She
spends her days reading and writing and
doing historical work. She's already a pub-
lished writer. She doesn't have a television set
and doesn't want one. Hearing her talk about
the projects she's undertaken, life on her little
farm and evenings alone by a warm fire with a
good book and the next book she's writing, it
occurs to me that Jocelyn has become a con-
noisseur of life. She's saved the best for last
and spends wintry cool Appalachian nights sip-
ping and savoring it, always ready to share it
with an old friend who's come in from the
cold. Old friends are like old wine. The vintage
is rare. It's served best with memories and

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
For a couple of years I have watched this lit-
tle house being restored on Harts Road ("Stop
work! Building Department, residents collide,"
It is a shame that in the age of "change" that
reasonable common sense cannot prevail in mak-
ing a decision regarding this old man's project to
honor his grandfather and some history of
Apparently the Building Department's per-
sonnel are either utterly insecure with their posi-
tion or think that they have some superiority
over the "commons" that has gone to their head.
We should do what is right and just, even
though the prevailing rules and laws are ambigu-
ous in this situation.
I for one agree with Mr. Hurlbert that as it is
a project without electric, running water or plans
for anyone to live in it, as long as it doesn't charge
people to tour it, it should be exempt from build-
If anyone objects to not having permits, then

ing like a representative of a suppressive gov-
Hopefully the Building Department will
change its position and be part of the solution and
not part of the problem.
City pulls meter?
I must take a moment to disclose to your read-
ers that a recent event has caused quite a stir in
our Historic District neighborhood. The city
building codes department had the electric meter
removed from a home here! That's right, they
removed the meter, and they did it while the
homeowner was out of town.
The city claims that they warned the owner to
respond to an assumed violation in three days, but
the owner was not even in town. So, they removed
the electric meter.
Why? Because the city official saw a sink in the
yard, and thought that there was construction
going on in there! My thoughts are that even
though there may be a violation (as it turns out
was not the case) why would the city resort to
such a drastic move?
Each of us can point to many homes in the
area that have obvious violations; why aren't
those homes having the meters pulled off?
When I contacted the city official, he stated
that it is the right of the building official to resort
to such a tactic to "get their attention."
I submit there is very little good that comes
from such action, especially when there is such
a minor supposed violation. It is just this type of
negative response that causes the city building
department such a bad reputation for customer
The city staff for the most part includes a
great bunch of folk; I work with them quite a bit.
But I must say that I disagree with this kind of
heavy-handed tactic when dealing with home-
owners that have worked hard to better their
homes; permit or not.
It would be my guess that the city commission
would want to stop such extreme enforcement
without a supervisor review first.
Will someone remind me how gas pricing
works again? It used to be when the price of
crude oil dropped, we could expect gas prices to
drop a few days later. For the past three weeks,
oil has dropped to under $38 a barrel, and we're
still paying higher prices at the pump. Clearly the
distributor must be pocketing the difference. If
there is a formula for pricing, it has changed
since last year.
Does anyone know what is going on? If I drive
to Georgia for gas, the price there is running
more than 35 cents under ours. Our taxes may be
higher, but not that much. Under last year's fig-
ures, $120 a barrel of oil meant $4 a gallon at the
pump. So what's the formula now that oil is $32.80
a barrel (as of Jan. 19)?
I'm so grateful for the kindness of Kmart
employee Tommy. I dropped my keys in the park-
ing lot - they fell down the storm drain!
He tried to fish them out with a long wire, no
luck. So he got the forklift, took the grate off, got
a ladder and climbed eight or nine feet down to
find them. What a brave, persistent, helpful per-
son I think Tommy is. I'm very grateful. Store
Manager John was also helpful.
After a gloomy holiday season, I would like to
congratulate and thank Joe Palmer for his short
story, printed on page one of the Dec. 24 issue of
the News-Leader. About my gloomy holidays, this
is my 12th Christmas in a row away from my
family and friends. Not due to my job or even mil-
itary service. But all due to being incarcerated in
the Florida penal system.
Having been recently transferred to the
Florida Panhandle, my News-Leader has taken
two weeks to be forwarded, thanks to an expe-
dient mail service here in the DOC. That's why
my letter is so late. But back to Joe Palmer: I
remember Joe, paddling out to surf with us
teenagers back in '87 or '88 at the caution light on
Fletcher or at Main Beach or the pier. I never got
to really know Joe, as I thought he was just some
old dude trying to hold onto his youth. Now,
over 20 years later, I am much older and I realize
what kind of person Joe must be to write a story
that would move me to tears; lying here in a cell
at one of the worst prisons in Florida, surround-
ed by some of the worst felons in the system.
Definitely not a good place to shed any tears or
show any weakness, for that matter.
But nonetheless, "A Gift for Santa" touched me
in a way that I was totally unprepared for. So
'TO0 P S
many of us take our blessings and our prosperi-
ty for granted. Few stop to think about those less
fortunate than we are. But for those who do, and
maybe even offer some form of help or encour-
agement, may good karma and the blessings of
a merciful God envelop you year-round. As I sit
and ponder my less than ideal situation, I also real-
ize that there are those a lot worse off than I am.
Not only inside the prison system, but also out in
the world. So let's all stop and cherish our indi-
vidual stations in life. Be thankful for those things
that so often go overlooked. And right now, I
wanna thank Joe Palmer for the present he gave
to me: a good shot of realization and humility
that soothes any soul, regardless of one's life sit-
uation. Thank you, Joe. Surf's up!

heard that the Amelia Island
Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB)
has announced the island's first-ever
"Restaurant Week," which will run from Jan. 25
to Feb. 1. As the CVB's name implies, this
effort is designed to bring
visitors and tourists to our area during
the off-season, giving a boost to our own
local merchants and restaurateurs at a time
when a tough economy has everyone con-
cerned. With 17 of our hometown favorites par-
ticipating, and a growing interest in "culinary
travel," we expect this inaugural event to be a
While this new marketing effort is targeted
toward an audience that comes from outside of
our immediate area, we want to ensure that our
local consumers, our own friends and neigh-
bors who are the lifeblood of our local econo-
my, are also aware of the great opportunity for
savings through this promotion. During this
week, residents and visitors alike will be able
to enjoy some of the area's incredible cuisine at
a fixed menu price. At each of the 17 restau-
rants, diners can enjoy a
z, , three-course meal (includ-
ing beverage) at prices
ranging from $19 to $29,
which represents a great
saving. This is your oppor-
tunity to try out "that
restaurant you've been
hearing about," or to enjoy
a special meal at one of
Boyle your longtime local
Either way you're guar-
anteed a wonderful dining experience, and as
an added incentive, diners who participate in
"Restaurant Week" can enter to win a "Year of
Dining" that includes 12 $50 gift certificates
redeemable at local restaurants throughout the
coming year. In any economy, that's a great
deal for anyone hungry for a bargain.
In an effort to put more "heads in beds"
with overnight visitors, the CVB is also work-
ing with local innkeepers to create special
room rates, offers and packages built around
"Restaurant Week." Many of our resorts, hotels
and inns are offering guests a free night with a
qualifying stay. With northern temperatures
below the freezing mark, are you expecting
kids, grandkids, old friends or neighbors for a
visit? If so, why not let them use the house, and
you and your spouse take advantage of the
grand accommodations available in our area?
That's a win-win arrangement for everyone!
Most of us understand that the current eco-
nomic challenges are impacting not only the
major cities, but also close-knit communities
like our own. With the initiation of "Restaurant
Week," the CVB is working diligently to keep
Amelia Island competitive as an attractive and
affordable destination for visitors and tourists
from other areas. But our restaurants know
that without the continued support of loyal cus-
tomers who call this island paradise their
"home," none of them could survive for very
We must never forget that lodging and
restaurants generate over $250 million in annu-
al sales in Nassau County, and that means over
$2.5 million for the county's one-cent tax,
which funds our Capital Improvement Plan.
That's $2.5 million that doesn't impact your
annual property tax bills. So during the week of

It was a blessing to be counted with
the millions of supporters in this great
moment in history. All across America
people came and we wanted to be in the
number when the change took place.
We should come together as one peo-
ple in Christ, no matter the color, for
God made us in his image. This moment
in history was already ordained by him,
so just put the spirit of Jesus in your
minds, not filled with bitterness but with
lots of love. Ask him to
make our hearts and

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 friends 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 l I
is obviously a good thing, and
probably doesn't require
academic research to confirm.
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 friendships;
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

FRIDAY, January 23, 2009/News-Leader
Trusting God is as simple as one, two, three
"Ready?" I said. "One, two,
"No, no," my dad
answered, "Let me count."
"Alright," I replied, "You
count," and so he did.
"One, two, three," he said
in a slow and calculated voice,
and up he stood as I assisted
him from off his bed and onto
"Good job Dad," I encour-
aged him as he shuffled his
weight around and tried to get
comfortable. Then, without
warning, my mind drifted
back to a time when things
were a lot different.
"Ready?" I could hear my
dad's voice. "One, two, three."
"No, no," I answered, "Let
and so I did.
all my might
into the pool
and into his
I'll never for-
You see, the memory was
from a time when I was a kid
and not a good swimmer.
Having my dad in the pool,
and knowing that he wouldn't
let me drown, was just what I
needed to help me overcome
my fears. However, now
things had changed and I was
the one helping him. Funny
how that happens, isn't it? As
my mind drifted back to my
dad, now sitting in his wheel-
chair, I found myself over-
whelmed by the love of God;
and it was as simple as one,
two, and three.
The principle is something
we never outgrow. Whether
we are a child standing on the
edge of a pool or we're older
and struggling just to get out
of bed, we all need to know
that someone is there to catch
us should we fall. That's what
the love of God is all about.
I'm sure you would agree
that this life is a bunch of
never ending challenges. For
me, it feels like as soon as I
overcome one thing, and
begin enjoying the fruits of
success, up pops a whole new
challenge that I'm not quite
sure that I'm ready to deal
with. And so the cycle goes.
"No, no," I often say to God
like I used to say to my dad.
"Let me count." And, some-
how, God seems willing to let
me do it as long as at the end
of the day I make the leap.
Now I'm not quite sure
why I felt led to write this par-
ticular article this week, but
perhaps it's just for you.
That's right. I'm convinced
that God would take the time
to print a newspaper article
for just one person if that's
what it took to let them know
how much He loved them. So,
if this article seems to be
speaking to you, just receive it
as a personal encouragement
from the Lord.
The message is a simple
one. The same God who
formed you in your mother's
womb is the same God who
has committed Himself to be
there for you all the days of
your life. Listen to the words
of God through the Prophet
Isaiah, chapter 46:3-4: "Listen
to me, descendants of Jacob,
all who are left of my people. I
have cared for you from the
time you were born. I am your
God and will take care of you
until you are old and your hair
is gray. I made you and will
care for you; I will give you
help and rescue you."
Though life has moved on,
my dad is now in a nursing
home, and I've grown a few of
my own gray hairs, one thing
remains the same. Both my
dad and I are still counting to
three and have learned togeth-
er how to jump into the strong
arms of our loving heavenly
Father and so can you.

YESTERDAY AND TODAY
The Rev. James T. :,
Dunnam, right, was pastor .
of the First Baptist Church J
for 12 years, from 1962-68
and 1989-95. It was during
his first pastorate that he
spent about two years writ-
ing the book History First .
Baptist Church, Fernandina
Beach, Florida 1959-1967, .
which contained photos and
information used extensive-
ly by the News-Leader in
publishing "First Baptist
Church, yesterday and
today," on Jan. 2. In 1967 the church had a History
Sunday where each member received a copy of the book
at an appreciation dinner.
Following publication, the Rev. Dunnam wrote from
Mississippi, where he and his wife, Betty Sue Dunnam,
below, have a retirement home and he is director of the
Greene County Museum.
"We have many wonderful memories of First Baptist
Church and Fernandina Beach," wrote the Rev.
Dunnam. "That is a 'choice place' to live and work - so
many wonderful people now and also those who have
gone before us."

Tips to avoid abusive lenders
TALIAHASSEE - Deciding to purchase a
home is one of the most significant decisions
that a consumer will ever make. It is crucial
that the consumer work with a licensed mort-
gage broker, loan originator or other mortgage
professional during the home buying process.
While most mortgage industry professionals
are honest and ethical, the Florida Association
of Mortgage Brokers (FAMB) offers the fol-
lowing tips to avoid abusive lending practices
during the home buying process:
* Shop around and compare. If you need to
borrow money for a home purchase, refinance,
or home repairs, shop around with different
licensed mortgage brokers and lenders.
Compare interest rates and find out what the
total costs of the loan will be and what your
monthly payment will be before making a deci-
sion. You should be furnished with a Good
Faith Estimate of costs. Use the Good Faith
Estimate from each licensed lender or broker
to compare the loan terms and costs.
* Negotiate. Don't let the promise of extra
cash or lower monthly payments get in the way
of your good judgment. Consider whether the
closing costs you will pay for the loan are really
worth it. Don't agree to a loan that includes
extra products you don't want. Negotiate the
loan terms and agree to a loan amount that will
meet your needs.
* Be cautious. Be wary of anyone who calls
you on the phone, solicits you in the mail or
comes to your door offering "bargain loans."
Beware of claims that the offer is only available
for a short period of time. Beware of lenders
claiming "bad credit - no problem." If the loan
terms seem too good to be true, perhaps they
* Never act immediately. If the mortgage
professional asks for fees up front, ask how the
fees will be used and be certain to get the
explanation in writing. Are the funds for the
appraisal or credit report? Never pay a lender
cash for any fees, and always make the check
payable to the mortgage firm, not the individ-
ual loan officer.
* Understand the terms of your loan. Some
loans may sound very attractive because the

*1the banking needs in the
orrmmurnitlies ..e serve.
Through ezinomic ups and
downs our doors riav'e remained open
monthly payment is small. Ask if the payment
will adjust during the life of the loan. Make
sure you know the dollar amount of each
monthly payment. If the loan is adjustable
(ARM), make sure you understand how often
and how much your payment can change.
* Don't be afraid to ask questions. You have
a legal right to know the total cost of the loan,
the annual percentage rate (APR), the monthly
payments and how long you will make pay-
ments on the loan. If you are unsure of any
terms of the loan, ask for an explanation. If you
don't receive a straight answer, go elsewhere
for your financing needs.
* Read carefully before you sign. Don't sign
any document you haven't read or has blank
spaces that could be filled in after you sign.
Don't be pressured into signing any loan
papers you do not understand. If you need an
explanation of any terms or conditions, talk to
someone knowledgeable. Get copies of every-
thing you sign at the time you sign them.
* Borrow only the amount you need and
can afford to repay. Just because you qualify
for a certain amount of money doesn't mean
you should borrow the maximum. Consider
whether you can afford to make the payments.
Determine exactly how much money you need,
borrow only that amount and find out exactly
how much your monthly payment will be. If
you are consolidating debt, make sure you will
have enough money left after closing costs and
loan payoffs to pay any other bills you would
like to eliminate.
* Immediately get help if you feel you have
been victimized. Contact your local state regu-
lators and/or your local Better Business
Bureau to report the individuals and compa-
nies you worked with.
The Florida Association of Mortgage Brokers
is the oldest state trade mortgage association in
the nation whose members strive to attain the
highest degree of excellence and customer service
available. FAMB members also subscribe to a
strict code of ethics. For more information or to

The Pirate wrestling team hosted Episcopal and Sandalwood Wednesday in a tri-match. The Pirates lost
to Episcopal but defeated Sandalwood. Pictured, clockwise from top left: Matt Roberts tries to put his
Episcopal opponent on his back; Jake Coombs pinned his Sandalwood opponent in 2:33; Pit LeBrun
pinned his Sandalwood foe in 5:11 and also won by pin against Episcopal; Donnie Moore won by injury

Eagles sweep match; Pirates beat Saints
Episcopal won both of its matches
Wednesday night at Fernandina
Beach High School. The Eagle grap-
plers defeated Sandalwood and the
host FBHS Pirates; the Pirates beat
Sandalwood in the finale.
"(Wednesday) was one of those
strange nights where not everything
goes right for a team," said Mark
Durr, FBHS wrestling coach. "We are
having some health issues, not that we
want to make any excuses. Episcopal
really whipped us and we know it.
They have a strong team of mostly
returning wrestlers, including two
state qualifiers, and their 189 finished
fourth in state last year. They are a
strong team and will be hard to beat
"We can just look at (Wednesday)
as a learning opportunity and get after
it again this weekend. If there is one
thing we want to teach Pirate
wrestlers is that we stay and fight no
matter what. We have to get some of
our wounded to our next battle this
weekend and we will."
Pirate Garrett Sharpe avenged an
earlier loss to his Episcopal opponent.
"We think this victory will get
Garrett a top seed at districts," Durr
said. "Adam (Thomason) had a great
night. He has been absorbing every-

the Bolles Bulldogs in Yulee.
"We did not play very well but

Symptoms above the neck?
Q. I am a high school basketball player. If I
* am sick is it still OK to play?
A. Athletic participation during illness is
* generally not recommended. Your body
is trying to fight off this illness and needs as
much energy as possible to do so. Athletic par-
ticipation essentially drains you of that energy,
leaving less for your immune system to use to
fight off the illness. Over-exertion during ill-
ness can also lead to depression of the
immune system, putting you at increased risk
for more serious illness. This topic was recent-
ly addressed at a national meeting of the
American Orthopedic Society for Sports
Medicine and some general recommendations
If an athlete's symptoms are clearly "above
the neck," meaning nasal congestion and sore
throat, it is felt to be acceptable to train on a
limited intensity level and increase intensity if
symptoms are not increased. Certainly if you
feel worse, you should stop.
If an athlete has symptoms "below the
neck," such as cough, body aches, muscle
soreness or shortness of breath, then training
and participation should stop until these symp-
toms have resolved. If you have fever, it is not
recommended that you participate. One par-
ticular concern regarding fever is that it may
be associated with myocarditis, an inflamma-
tion of the heart, and myocarditis has an asso-
ciation with sudden death in athletes.
Matt Lauer of 'The Today Show" inter-
viewed Dr. Phillip Tierno, an infectious dis-
ease expert, regarding illness and bacterial
contamination of everyday locations such as
taxis, ATM machines, escalator rails and so
on. Lauer went about his normal day and, at
several stops along the way, Tierno would take
culture swabs of the things that he had just
The results were shocking. Bacterial con-
taminants of spit and sneezes were commonly
found. The results did not surprise Tierno,
who noted that a potential source of infection
is the gymnasium or health
club. It is a warm environ-
ment with lots of hot, sweaty
people using the machines.
As you can imagine, one by
one, members grab onto the
rails, bars and handles of the
exercise equipment, poten-
tially passing bacteria from
one person to another.
Many gyms, such as our
local YMCA, keep antiseptic
spray bottles close by to
allow you to "decontaminate"
the equipment. Most people
use these after they are done
with a particular machine. In
some cases, it is just not real-
istic to spray down each and
every handle after you are done, but you
should try to do it when you can, especially if
you are sick.
During your workout, you should also try
to keep your hands away from your eyes, nose
and mouth to reduce your risk of spreading
infection. Many recommend even trying to
spray the machines before you use them.
When you are done with your workout, wash
your hands again.
If you are already sick, then as much as
your workouts mean to you, you should con-
sider avoiding the gym all together until you
are well. There are lots of people there work-
ing hard, becoming winded and breathing
deep, and I am sure they don't care to suck
your germs deep into their lungs.

The First Coast Freedom Playground Foundation is seeking to create a universally
accessible playground in Fernandina Beach and recently was approved by the city to
locate the facility on land around the Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center.
This month, landscape architect Ted Kempton of Hardeman Kempton & Associates
visited Fernandina to get information about the town and start planning the play-
ground design. He visited Ms. Pierce's and Mr. Demeter's classes at Emma Love
Hardee Elementary School to get suggestions from the kids about what they'd like to
have at the park. Meeting with Kempton, kneeling above, are students Brenna Dahl,
Kayla Hagren, Lindsey Delille and Ique Jones.
Kempton asked the kids to think about their favorite activities to do at a park, not
just swinging and sliding. He then asked them to draw a picture of that. He also asked
them what they thought was unique about Fernandina Beach, and to incorporate that
into their pictures. Finally, he asked them to think about their grandparents or friends
that might have difficulty using the equipment or participating in their activities and
asked the kids to think about ways to make their activities accessible for all.
During the month of November, Mrs. John's kindergarten class at Faith Christian
Academy attended the Slim Goodbody educational program as part of their science
unit on the human body. Slim Goodbody is a nationally acclaimed Public Broadcasting
System character that has educated children throughout the United States for over 30
years on educational television and nationwide tours. Above, the students show Slim
Goodbody their child-sized human body posters that they colored and labeled which

'Diaries of Adam and Eve' a different side of Twain
A melia Community
A Theatre is inviting
audiences to step
ack in time with
their latest production, Mark
Twain's 'The Diaries of Adam
and Eve." The play, edited and
adapted by David Birney, is
based on two short pieces by
the master humorist.
"One of the things that sur-
prised me was the sophistica-
tion of the dialogue," said co-
director Jennifer Webber.
"Most people who are familiar
with Mark Twain know Huck
Finn and Tom Sawyer - that
kind of homespun dialogue.
This is more like a drawing-
room comedy, like The
Importance of Being Earnest.'
I think it's interesting to see
that side of Twain."
Webber, who is co-directing
the play with fellow ACT mem-
ber Sinda Nichols, said Birney
skillfully combined two very
different pieces into a cohesive
whole. "I think one of the
things that strikes me is that
David Birney very clearly inte-
grates both of these stories,"
she said. "'The Diary of Adam'
was written when Twain was a
younger man, and The Diary
of Eve' was written later in his
life, after he had lost his wife
and a daughter."
Webber said that although
the play has a serious side,
dealing with loss and death,
greater stress is laid on
humor. "The concept is, what
would it be like to be the very
first people and have no one to
turn to and say, 'What is that?'"
she said. "Eve takes charge of
the naming of everything, and
Adam scrambles to keep up
with Eve's quick mind.
"It would be suitable for the
whole family, but the humor
might be too sophisticated for
very young children," Webber
added. "Even the Bible study
class can come. It's not sacrile-
gious - it's just fun."
The play is cast with two
veterans of the ACT stage,
Geoffrey King and ACT
Managing Director Linda
McClane. "We're really thrilled
that Linda McClane is back
onstage," Webber said. The
last time she had a part in a
play was 2001. She's one of our
most gifted actresses, and
