Goffinsville park to open this summer


RYAN SMITH ,
News-Leader


A new county park Goffins-
ville/Nassau River Regional Park is.
scheduled for completion this sum-
mer.
k The Nassau County Commission
authorized this month the use of more
than $82,000 in impact fees for con-.
struction of the park. That was part of
a larger impact fee expenditure, more
than $748,000, to fuid the construc-
tion for which the county had insuffi-
cient funds when first approved in
2007.
The Goffinsville park project start-


ed construction in September. The
park will feature a boat ramp, fishing
pier, children's playground and a
nature walk.
"It's a wonderful-project Its a neat
operation," Commissioner Mike Boyle
said last week. "It's a project that I
am very excited about and very proud,
of. ... I think it will provide a state-of-
the-art recreation facility on the
Nassau River easily accessible to
not only people from Amelia Island,'
but those in the southern part of the
county."
Boyle has long been an advocate of
increasing Nassau County's parkland
- but has occasionally been the lone


voice in the wilderness on the issue.
In May he pushed the county com-
mission to partner with theTrust for
Public Land to buy an 87-acre tract
off Owens Road in Nassauville. A state
.grant would have supplied up to $1.4
million toward the purchase, but other
commissioners balked at the $600,000
the county would have been required
to put up. In August, Boyle proposed
a referendum on a bond issue to raise
money for parkland, but withdrew the
proposal when it failed to garner sup-
port among the other commission-
ers.

.RYAN SMITH
News-Leader"
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves has told.
the Nassau County Commission that
he intends to relinquish management
of Animal Control npxt month, just one
year after he assumed control of the
beleaguered operation.
in a -letter dated Wednesday,
Seagraves provided the commission
with 30 days' notice of his intent to
turn the department over to the coun-
ty on May 15. The management agree-
men it between the commission and the
sheriff's office required a 60-day notice
unless both parties agree on a shorter
time. However, that agreement expired
Sept. 30.


The sheriff also
asked whether the
commission wished
to keep $10,415
worth of computer
equipment and
radios purchased for
Animal Control, ask-
ing the commission-
Seagraves ers to notify him of
their decision within
15 days. Ifnthe county
decides to keep the equipment,

Downtown businessman Tim
Poynter tell just 13 votes short of avoid-
ing a runoff for a city commission seat
in Tuesday's election, according to
unofficial results.
Now, Poynter and Larry Myers will
vie in a May 12 runoff election to deter-
mine who will replace Commissioner
Ron Sapp, -who chose not to seek
reelectibn to a ninth term.
The spoiler was Jim B.

sioner who reported lending his quixot-

In the end, he got 165 votes, or 10 per-
cent of the total.
But that was enough votes to pos-
sibly deprive Poynter of a majority
required to avoid a runoff. He received
786 votes, or 49.2 percent, to 646 votes,
or 40 percent, for Myers.

However, Boyle said he
hopes the current commission,
with three newly elected mem-
bers, will be more amenable
to increasing Nassau County's
recreational space. "We haven't
had an opportunity to test the
will of this current commis-
sion," he said. "I am hopeful
that with the new commis-
sioners on board, we may have
the necessary support to start
attacking that deficit.... I think
we had a mindset before of not
spending any money on any-
thing. The truth of the matter
is that good stewards look for
ways to increase their holdings
when prices are low. That's
what I tried to do last year.
Unfortunately, it got 'shot
down."
However, Boyle did give the
last commission credit for get-
ting the ball rolling on
.Goffinsville. "While this has
been on the drawing boards
for several years, it's only been
this last commission that actu-
ally put the money in the capi-
tal improvement plan to fund
it," he said.

Continued from 1A
Fernandina Beach voters cast
ballots, or 19 percent of those
registered. That was a better
turnout than a year ago when
12 percent, of the electorate
voted, and'in 2007 when 15.5
percent turned out.. But it was
below the 2006.turnout of 27.4
percent.
City voters chose a new
mayor Tuesday and turned out
the current one. The new
mayor was inevitable since vot-
ers' choice was between
Commissioners Susan Steger
and Eric Childers.
Steger "shellacked"
Childers his term in a thank-
you e-mail to supporters by
1,101 to 369, or 75-25 percent.
The vote is not binding since
the city commission actually
selects the mayor. But by tra-
dition the commission choos-
es the mayor based on the
straw ballot. .
Mayor Bruce Malcolm
wasn't on the ballot for mayor
because he was defending his
seat on the city commission.
His bid for a second three-year,
term was upended by former
city fire marshal Jeffrey

NASSAU COUNTY COMMISSIONER MIKE BOYLE


Goffinsville project got off the
ground was the use of impact
fees to fund it 'They submitted
a financial action form to use
impact fees (for the park in
2007)," Office of Management
and Budget Director Ted Selby
said April 6.
The county has had diffi-
culty spending impact fees in
the past, due to state require-
ments that the fees be used for
new growth and the high stan-
dards by which "new growth"
is defined. Even on the local
level, the process is time-con-
suming, Selby said. 'Typically
a department head has, a proj-
ect that he or she feels is eli-
gible, and then they put togeth-
er a request to use impact
fees," he said". "If they're all
done with the request and feel


they can use impact fees and
they think they can use
$100,000 in impact fees, my
only role is to verify that they
have $100,000 in impact fees.
"It goes to the county attor-
ney, and he has to review it
and see that it does meet the
requirements to spend impact
fees on," he continued. "Then
it goes to the clerk of courts.
He doesn't get the final vote,
but he gets the final say about
whether it goes to the Board of
County Commissioners. Once
everybody's signed off includ-
ing the clerk, then it comes
back to the board saying 'We
have an approved financial
action form for $100,000,' and
then the board, gives it a final
approval."

board over the last 12 months to
operate Animal Control,
Seagraves said the cost of the
equipment came out of the sher-
iff's office general fund.
The commission was not
receptive to Seagraves' request
to hand the department back
to the county within 30 days -
particularly since two commis-
sioners, Danny Leeper and
Chairman Barry Holloway,
were absent from Wednesday's
meeting.
"I don't think we should cut
this (60-day notice) in half," said
Commissioner Mike Boyle,
who chaired Wednesday's meet-
ing. "I think it's going to be a lot
of work to find someone (to take
over Animal Control)."
"I think there's a lot of
dynamics we're going to have to
research here," said
Commissioner Stacy Johnson.
"And Mr. Boyle, I think you're
right it might take more than
30 days with everything else we
have on our plate."
Although -the agreement
between the board and the sher-
iffs office expired in September,
Molly Garett, a lawyer with the
county attorney's office, said it
might remain legally in force
without either party officially
withdrawing from it. If that is
the case,,the board could still
demand 60 days' notice.
.There was also concern
about whether to reimburse the
sheriff's office for the comput-
ers and radios. "(According to
Seagraves' letter), he's going to
assume we don't want to keep
the equipment if we don't
respond by April 30," Johnson
said. '
However, Boyle questioned'
why the equipment purchase
came from the sheriff's gener-
al fund when the board made
direct payments for the man-
agement of Animal Control.
Office of Management and
Budget Director Ted Selby
could not immediately answer
the question, as the sheriff's
ledgers are separate from those
of the county government
'Boyle said Thursday that
Seagraves' request seemed to
come from left field. "It was a
complete surprise. He has never

Although over 1,000 rats have been killed, the
problem continues to persist.'
SHERIFF TOMMY SEAGRAVES


so I assumed it was going
smoothly," he said. "I have no
idea what prompted this deci-
sion.
"I'm disappointed, because
I thought the sheriff was the
best option we had when we
gave Animal Control to his
department," Boyle added. "He
had come to the board and had
offered to take over the pro-
gram. We also gave him signif-
icantly enhanced funding to
improve the program, so I think
my colleagues and I are trying
to figure out what went wrong."
The sheriffs office took over
operation of Animal Control in
April 2008. At that time, the
department was tainted by
charges of poor recordkeeping,
bad management and high staff
turnover. In October 2007, then
Animal Control director Brenda
Rothwell was dismissed after
allegations of mismanagement
Rothwell continued to serve as
the county's code enforcement
director.
In his letter, Seagraves said
the sheriffs office had dramat-
ically improved the situation at
Animal Control. "Prior to April
15 (2008), the Animal Control
Department was drastically
understaffed with only six
employees to respond to calls
from the public, care for,the
150-plus animals and work to
have those animals adopted,"
Seagraves wrote. "At present,
Animal Control has 12'employ-
ees, including a shelter manag-
er, and two additional animal
control officers that were hired
to ensure timely responses to
calls for service. Currently, calls
for service have increased from
approximately 100-150 calls to.
400-600 calls per month.. It
would appear that based upon
the huge increase in calls for
service the public has recog-
nized the improvement in serv-
ice."
However, problems have


continued to plague the depart-
ment a fact that Seagraves
acknowledged in his letter to
the commission.
"While positive changes
have taken place, significant
issues that affect the potential
.for improvement at Animal
Control have brought me great
concern," he wrote. "First and
foremost, upon assuming
responsibility of Animal Control
it was discovered that there
was a tremendous infestation
of rats in the Animal Control
building. Although over 1,000
rats have been killed, the prob-
lem continues to persist."
Seagraves added that he was
told the infestation could not be
totally eliminated without struc-
tural improvements to the build-
ing to prevent rats from enter-
ing. /
The department has also
dealt with personnel changes
under the sheriff's manage-
ment. Chris Barnes, hired in
April 2008 to replace Rothwell,
was removed .in January and
replaced by interim director
Mimi Vitale. Two other employ-
ees quit in the wake of Barnes'
departure, although Seagraves
said at the time that neither one
gave him a reason for leaving.
'Seagraves wrote that he
needed to "refocus my respon-
sibilities" on the operation of
the sheriffs office. "... I have
evaluated the ongoing impact
the additional responsibilities
(of managing Animal Control)
have had and would continue
to have on the sheriffs office,"
he wrote. "As the. sheriff of
Nassau County, my foremost
obligation is to ensure the safe-
ty and security of our residents,
an obligation the citizens elect-
ed me to ensure."
The commission voted unan-
imously to continue discussion
of the sheriff's request to its
Monday budget meeting.

Skeletal remains possibly missing local woman


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader


Nassau County investigators
are looking into the possibility
that skeletal remains found near
Bryceville last weekend could
be those of Jackie Markham, a
Callahan mother and grand-
mother who went missing on
Dec. 14, 2000.
Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves said experts
with the Jacksonville Medical
Examiner's Office and an
anthropology expert are "lean-
ing toward (the remains being)
* female and Caucasian."
Detectives are working the
case as a homicide, Seagraves
said. But he cautioned that no
positive identification of the
bones has been made and a
.cause of death has not yet been
determined.
Seagraves said in addition


to "countless" Caucasian
women reported missing
nationwide, there's "a girl miss-
ing from Clay County, females
missing from Duval, from
Broward County."
"It could be anybody, but it
could be (Markham),"
Seagraves said Thursday morn-
ing. "I actually have talked to
the Markham family, and of
course the missing person from
that general area is Jackie
Markham, and I'd love to see
this lead to some more steps to
solving this case for the family
... but even if not, it's still good
to re-release the story (of
Markham's disappearance) and
keep it in the public eye."
Markham would have
turned 60 this year, family mem-
bers have long assumed she is
dead, but the uncertainty is tor-
turous for her children.
"She has just enough hope


(that her
mother is still
alive) to
S.r. km, make her life
S miserable,"
Markham's
j son-in-law
Todd Myrick
said of his
Markham wife Melissa,
........ Markham's
daughter, in a
2006 interview. "Sometimes
there will be that one second, in
an airport or something, where
she sees someone with the
same hair or something and
thinks, 'Maybe,' but it's never
her."
And, Seagraves is quick to
caution, this may not be 'her.
With no positive DNA identifi-
cation, no cause of death rul-
ing, no word yet on how long
the remains have been where
they were found or when this


person may have died,
Seagraves said at this point the
only thing linking the remains
to Markham is the educated
guess by experts that the bones
are from a white female along
with the fact they were discov-
ered on the West Side of Nassau
County, in the general area
where Markham went missing.
The bones, including a
human skull, were discovered
at a hunt club in Bryceville April
10 and do show some indica-
tion that the death was a homi-
cide, but Seagraves declined to
confirm that the indications
include a.possible bullet hole
in the skull.
"The experts need to do
some X-raying, at this point,
we're looking for everything,"


Seagraves said. "they're also
hoping to be able to get DNA
out of the teeth ... they're going
to send a description and the
* measurements of the skull itself,
and there's a computer system
that's able to maybe reconstruct
a face ... they're trying to get
an estimate of the height of the
person."
Because Seagraves is famil-
iar with the Markham case, and
with Markham's family, he
admits he hopes the remains
are those of Markham, so detec-
tives can go from there to solv-
ing the case, and the family can
have some closure. The case
was re-opened by the sheriff's
office in 2006.
Markham disappeared the
day before a planned trip to visit


her children and her grandson
for an early Christmas in
December 2000. Her Christmas
tree was found half-decorated
and covered in cobwebs when
her children went to her home
to collect her personal items in
April 2001, and since her dis-
appearance, her car, her bank
account, her cell phone, her
name, her Social Security num-
ber and her legal name have
never been used.
Her family had her declared
legally dead so they could sell
her Callahan home. Still,
Seagraves knows they are hop-
ing for some answers.
"Right now, they don't have
anything, any answers," he said.
"All they have is memories."

OPINION


Public records'abuse' in the goldfish bowl


A public records
request: it's a compo-
nent of the Florida
Sunshine Law.
And this law is one of the
best laws the people of .
Florida, or for that matter any
person regardless of residen-
cy, has to protect and insure
their right in attaining infor-
mation about our government
without being questioned, and
can do so without fear of
recrimination or retribution.
It's avery good law. In fact,
Florida's.Sunshine Law is per-
haps one of the most strin-
gent, principled and enforced
such laws in the United States.
It's almost perfect, almost.
The only flaw is, well,
abuse. :
It is intended to protect the
rights of the people and to.
.keep government open and in
the "sunshine." It was born
from the times when political
decisions were often made,
shrouded in secrecy, when
backroom deals by politicians
and bureaucrats were the
order of the day;'


1 But it has
also become
a tool of self-
serving indi-
viduals or
special inter-
est groups
.. with axes to
grind and
agendas to
OPINIONS be forward-
FROM THE ed, n.o'more
GOLDFISH so than right
here in our
Coleman own Peyton
Langshaw Place, better
known as
Fernandina
Beach.
Other-communities have
their share of public records
requests, but here it has
become an art form. In many
communities, a public records
request is considered a signifi-
cant and important query of,
concern, garnering special
attention for such a momen-
tous action being taken by a
member of the community. It
is obvious by its nature to be
'serious, and relevant to the


public's best interest.
In Fernandina Beach, a
public records request is as
surprising or momentous as
another phone call from a tele-
marketer. They happen all the
time, and they range from
pressing public issues right
down to what dirt a person can
find on someone in local gov-
ernmnnt, real or otherwise, to
get back at them for not giving
them what they wanted.
But does it really matter?
It's just taxpayer dollars, being
used for uncovering corrupt
government or possibly
nothing at all. There's no
accountability for the
requestor. They don't have to
leave a name (they can be
anonymous), and if the vol-
umes of documents are not
significant, there's no charge.
The time consumed is hard to
measure. It's not just the time
spent on the request, it's the
time lost on the other work
still to be done, and the time it
takes to pick up where one left
off. But it's no matter, no
request can be dismissed


because it appears to be frivo-
lous, it's-the law and every
request requires the same
time and attention. No excep-
tions.
And to underscore my
point, I received such a
request. Out of the blue, some-
one wanted to know about the
relationship between the com-
pany in which I have an own-
ership interest and the pay-
ments it makes to the city
marina'(which I also manage
for the city) for dockage and
garbage. I have declared my
conflict-of-interest as a public
record, and I certainly have no
issue with such an inquiry,
except for the coincidence of
the timing. Just about every-
one lmows about me, my fami-
ly and the longstanding rela-
tionship we have had with the
city and its'imarina (40 years in
fact). There is nothing new ,
about my relationship in this
regard, and obviously I would
be pretty stupid to give prefer-
ential treatment in such a fish
bowl, a goldfish bowl in fact, in
light of this.


Still, the request came for-
ward. It came right on the
heels of my last column about
"Felixgate." I had received a
rather venomous "love e-mail"
from a writer, and it was clear
that because I had written an
opposing point of view and
worked in the public sector, I
really had no right to do so,
according to this individual. I
was being unethical. Next, I
get an anonymous phone call.
at work about all the financial
records of the marina, and
then the aforementioned pubic
records request about my
business and the city. I'm not
quite convinced that my para-
noia is totally unfounded, but I
could be wrong, but it's not
the first time such a coinci-
dence has occurred.
Oh well, that's the risk I
take for daring to exercise my
right as an American. It's more'
so the risk I take exercising
this right in Fernandina
Beach.
But this is not how I want
to end this column. I want to
end on a different note, hope.

fully segueing from a negative
to a positive. Last week when
the community was rallied by
the various forces to "Free
Felix" I was inspired by the
sense of the good in our com-
munity (yes, I am borrowing
from my fellow esteemed
columnist Joe Palmer here, he
was right on about it).
Our community showed
that we have a big heart Old,
and more importantly young,
people came out in support of
a fellow member of our city.
Although I didn't agree with
the behind-the-scenes politics
and grandstanding by certain
opportunists, I was truly
impressed by the people who
genuinely were concerned by
a perceived injustice. It was a
great American moment.
Now I want to challenge
those same people to continue
with that enthusiasm and con-
cern, and focus on some other
terribly important.issues fac-
ing our community. I want to
see the same sense of urgency
and concern and outrage
about these topics that are
right here in our beautiful city.
and island: the plight of the
increasing homeless popula-
tion, the increasing drug-
abuse problem and the out-of-
control HIV/AIDS problem
that is ravaging our area.
These are issues that have not
been deemed important
enough by our local media,
,our local government or our
local community to warrant
the attention Felix garnered
last week.
No offense here, but if we
spent just a-little less time try-
ing to find a smokeless gun or
make bureaucrats jump
through hoops for personal
vendettas, and focused more
on the serious problems that
surround us, we might actual-
ly find that we can truly make
positive headway on changing
and improving our community
for the benefit of all.
But right now, in the cli-
mate that encircles us, I think
we are falling short of the
great, positive potential we all
know exists, and was shown

John Lloyd, on the beach.


Local hero

The Carnegie Hero Fund Commission
has named 19 individuals-as recipients of
the Carnegie Medal, including local resi-
dent John Lloyd. It is a well-deserved honor.
This medal is awarded to those in the
United States and Canada "who risk their
lives to an extraordinary degree while sav-
ing or attempting to save the lives of oth-
ers," the Carnegie Hero Fund Commission
said.
Lloyd helped to save young William
Wynne, 7, from drowning on May 25, 2007,
off Main Beach. Visiting from Atlanta,
William and his father were swimming
when, caught in a rip current, they were
unable to return'to shore and called for
help. Lloyd, a 64-year-old retired teacher
who was walking the beach, swam out to
them, taking William from his father and
keeping him afloat until lifeguards could
reach them. :
Lloyd, taken from the rough surf himself
by a lifeguard when he could no longer
swim, was treated at a local hospital.
Tragically, William's father drowned.
Lloyd, a familiar sight on the beach as he
walks along taking photographs, many of
them published in the News-Leader. is miod
est about his heroism. But Chase Dopson.
one of the lifeguards then and a firefighter
now, properly nominated Lloyd for this
award.
The greatest reward for Lloyd, 'of course,.
is when he visits with young William and
his mother.
The greatest reward for us is knowing
there are real heroes among us. John Lloyd
is one of them.
Let us all be grateful for that.

The Gettysburg Address


I


i;


Although the Gettysburg Address was
written well over 100 years ago,
some of its points are still related to
today. Lincoln had many ideals:
equality for all men, the honoring of American
soldiers and the preservation of our nation. I
believe that these ideals are still relevant
today.
When Lincoln said in his speech that there
is an equality of all men, I feel like he knew
what he was saying. This ideal still relates to
today because there are still racist people in
America. It is because of these people that
most people cannot get jobs, good homes, nice
cars and good insurance coverage. These peo-
ple I strongly dislike because America is called
"The Land of the Free and the Home of the
Brave." Also I've had experience dealing with
racists. I was at my old school in Jacksonville
and I was hanging out with some friends. As I
was talking, a group of kids shoved me into a
wall. Seeing how I'm a lover, not I fighter, I
asked why they would shove me and one of
them spoke up and said, "Because you need to
get back to the cotton fields, nigger!" "This is
the white people's country not the black peo-
ple's country." I was furious and wanted to
hurt them, but then I thought to myself that I
would not start any fights at school or any-
where else.,So I just told the principal about
.what happened, and she willingly took care of
it. As you can see, my case is just like any
other person who wants America to be a whole
country of free people, but yet not everybody

Public servants.
Recently I had an opportunity to call 911 for
what I perceived to be a fire emergency. As I
explained to the 911 dispatcher what was hap-
pening, I realized that the dispatcher was calm,
efficient and professional. She spoke in a com-
forting voice and assured me that help was on the
way. She instructed,me to leave the house and
wait outside for the responding units.
In less than four minutes I could hear the
sounds of emergency vehicles responding to my
location. I had smelled electrical wire burning and
my smoke alarms were sounding. I waited outside
my home as instructed and was quite impressed
with the response time.
As the first fire apparatus arrived I was relieved
wheq I recognized Lt. Victor Russell of the
Fernandina'Beach Fire Department. Although I
live in the county, I found greater reassurance in
knowing that there was a coordinated response
from the city and county fire departments. The
responding firemen were extremely profession-
al and took great care in reassuring me that the
situation was under control.
As they methodically searched my home for
the problem I realized that this was not just
another response call for the brave men who
Iihefked mnv home It suddenly crossed my mind
that their jobs were extremely dangerous and
many of us would not want to take the risk that
these men and women take every day. Our pub-
lic servants risk their lives on every call no mat-
ter how insignificant it may seem, things can go
wrong at any time.
We often forget to thank them publicly. So I
would like to take this opportunity on behalf of
myself,'family and some friends who experi-
enced the proficient services from our public
servants and say "thank you!" to the men 'and
women of the Fernandina Beach and Nassau
County Fire, Police and Sheriff departments for
all that you do in service to our community.

Dogs on the beach
I am just floored by your rudeness ("Dogs on
the beach," April 1). What gives you the right to
have your dogs run amuck on the beach? I walk
a dog every day, two times per day, on the beach.
I can't count the times a dog has come running
up to us off leash. The dog I am walking is a
smaller breed, and it is just terrifying for him to
have a large dog come at him at a gallop. I then
have to scoop up my dog and try to keep the
other dog at bay, all the time the owner of the
large dog is yelling, "Oh it's OK, Fido just wants
to play."
Well guess what my dog doesn't. He is feel-
ing threatened and therefore is on the defensive.
No, he is not an aggressive dog, he is a nice lit-
tle friendly fellow, but how would you feel if a
strange person three times your size comes run-
ning at you? You have no clue what their inten-
tions are.
. Please put yourself in other people's shoes
before you let your dog "run leash-less after her
ball" on the beach.

'Applause'"
Our Fernandina community might give some
"applause" to how Comcast has diligently com-
plied with city commission direction to provide
a community-oriented TV channel, Channel 29,
as part of its franchise agreement.
Comcast coverage of city commission meet-
ings is especially applaudable. There's still a lot
of potential growth areas available for, expan-
sion of such coverage that Comcast should not
await city commission directives to act upon.

Twisted meaning
I found the letter ("IHistorical hysteria," March
27) objectionable for two reasons.
First of all,why is a resident of Roswell, Ga.,
motivated to educate we who live in Nassau
County, Florida, about the dangers of an ultra-pro-
gressive national agenda? Is it possible that he
has an agenda of his own, an agenda that is
more than merely one of expressing a conser-
vative political viewpoint? It may come as a sur-
prise to him to learn that NortheastFlorida has
no shortage of eloquent spokespersons for the
conservative cause and thatwe need no lectures
from those who hail from our neighboring state.
And second, I do object to the use of out-of-
context quotes, particularly in partisan political
essays. The quote from C.S. Lewis is indeed
famous and does protest tyanny imposed by
those who believe it is for the good of its victims.
But the C.S. Lewis quote is found in his book God
in the Dock, a series of essays on theology and
ethics, and refers to a government forcing a
belief on citizens against their will. To take the
words of a wonderful Christian author and twist
them into a political meaning is certainly an
excellent example of the "historical hysteria"
that the letter writer decries!

'God moment'
I'm in church Easter Sunday and receive a call
on my (muted) cell phone. I can see on the caller
ID that it's my renter, so I quickly assume it
must be some kind of emergency. After the serv-
ice I call and he apologizes profusely, but relates
that the toilets are backing up! We discuss all the
obvious causes, e.g., breaker tripped, better
plunger, plunging technique, etc. After a couple
"back and forth" calls between us, I decided to
seek professional advice.
I utilized the Beyond 411 search on my Black-6
berry and called Murray Septic, one of the first
numbers that came up. A gentleman answered (I
fully expected to get at an answering machine)
and I explained my plight to him. He told me
that he wasn't the right guy for the job and quick-
ly suggested I call Blocker Septic. I immediate-
ly did so and, again, a person actually answered
the phone. I explained the situation, while apol-
ogizing profusely for Sunday being Easter, etc.,
and she assured me that it was not a problem and
she would radio "the guys" to see if they could get
out that day. No more than 20 minutes later she
called me back and said they were on their way.
I arrived at my rental home to find Robert
Blocker kneeling on the ground with his head
down in my septic, piecing my system back
together with a new pump and other replace-
ment parts. This sight struck me quickly as a
"God moment." I can only guess, however, it
wasn't quite the same for Robert
In.these days of economic turmoil and social
calamity, I wanted to communicate an account of
true service to the community. Robert exempli-
fied how we business people should all treat our
"neighbors" in times of need.

outpouring of love and help in the saddest times
like a couple of weeks ago when my father Bill
Hair went to be with the Lord.
Thank you is not enough for the people who
loved "Mr. Bill," the ones who brought food,
paper goods, sat with him while we worked fix-
ing up his house to try to get him back home.
Some of you I have known all my life and others
are new to me and my heart says thank you to
each of you.
I personally want to thank the people I call the
"Church of the Hammerhead" who worked for
a solid month and weekends after their regular
jobs because they loved my dad and wanted to
help out in a 99-year-old house full of neglect,
since my mom died in 1998.1 I am so proud of you
guys and all you did because of your love for my
dad.
Thank you each of you who attended his
funeral; thank you to those of you who shared sto-
ries of my dad's life, (by the way the mouse
story happened to be a baby squirrel my dad res-
cued and not a mouse).
I personally remember driving through
Hardee's years ago in my dad's tow truck and the
smiling young girl.at the window saying hello Mr.
Bill and everywhere I went with my dad people /
seemed so happy to see him with his puppy in his
pocket and his smile on his face. He was'a per-
son always willing to give a helping hand, a per-
son who taught us to share, to take in strays
whether animal or human species, he always
had an open seat at the table if you were hungry,
or a bed if you needed a place to, sleep, it may be
freezing, but it had a pile of covers. He was
famous for his potato salad, everywhere he went
he had his wooden potato bowl full to the brim.
He had five kids and loads of grandkids and
great-grandkids whom he loved and we loyed
him.
I have lost a father, but my hometown has lost
an icon, "Papa Hair," "Mr. Bill," "Old Pool Shark,"
you will be missed forever.

Why gold?
Being a proponent for some tangible sub-
stance to back all global currencies, I am appalled
at the rigidity of those who wish to return to a
gold standard. The last time we tried this was
from 1944 to 1971. By U.S. and British agreement
the Bretton Woods system, by fixing the price of
gold at $35/ounce, nearly emptied Fort Knox.
When it became clear that the demand for gold
would quickly exceed our supply President
Nixon wisely stopped selling in time. Over the
last 10 years gold has ranged from $252 to
$1,002/ounce.
Yes, fiat or credit based currencies have their
drawbacks. But what we really need a is new
image for our currencies. Gold is for crowns for
kings and queens. We need a reminder of our
basic needs: food, clothing and shelter. A bundle
of goods, such as a bolt of cloth or a bushel of
grain or one of beans perhaps, well thought out
to help endure emergency, could be more reas-
suring than gold.

upholds this statement. I believe that we need
to uphold our name, and even though I am a
kid, I still want my voice heard by the people
just like Abe.
Also Lincoln stated that we should honor
American soldiers. This is also an ideal I sup-
port because these people gave their lives for
us to stay a free country. They show great
courage, bravery and pride. These people,
these veterans, are still important to me. If I
could, I'd take a video camera and record all of
the veterans telling me why they are fighting
for us. If I did this, it'll be like me showing
those who show no honor towards the veterans
that there is a reason why we honor them.
These people remind me of a movie called
"Home of the Brave," based on a true story of
four American soldiers who are returning
home after spending time in the Iraqi war.


Some people in this movie thought that just
because the soldiers fought in the war we
shouldn't care. I was mad that they would say
such a thing. I say that we should honor these
brave men and women even if no one else
does.
Finally, the other significant point Lincoln
talked about was the preservation of our
nation. This, I would have to say, is the most
important ideal in the document. I feel we
should make sure our government stays
strong. Plus, I think that such petty things like
religion,, politics, thoughts and clothes should
not divide us. This nation is depending on each
of its people to vote or decide on what they
think is right. I also think that we should band
together in the cause of American right, even
though we do not like the thought of war. I say
that we should fight for our rights and protect
them. We should try to accept each other's dif-
ferences and religion to keep our nation strong
because America is like a shirt and we are the
strings. If one string is pulling away from the
shirt, then the shirt falls apart.
As you can see, I believe that the ideals of
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address are significant
These ideals make our country smarter,
stronger and better. I think that Lincoln made
this speech for more than just commemorating
a graveyard. He gave this speech to give the
men and women of America hope. This docu-
ment is a significant item that must stay pre-
served. Last, I only have (one) question: "What
do you think of the Gettysburg Address?"

Live the message of the resurrection


"In the end of the
Sabbath, as it began to dawn
toward the first day of the
week, came Mary
Magdalene and the other
Mary to see the sepulcher.
And behold, there was a
great earthquake, for the
angel of the Lord descended
from heaven and came and
rolled back the stone from
the door and sat upon it.
His countenance was like
lightning and his raiment
white as snow. And for
fear of him, .the keepers did
shake and become as dead
men. And the angel
answered and said unto the
women, 'Fear not ye, for I
knew ye seek Jesus, which
was crucified. He is not here,
for He is risen as He said be
would:"'
Another Resurrection
Weekend has been celebrat-
ed. Has Jesus gotten up in
your life yet? He got up early

School art at Shrimp Festival


SHERRY FERBER
For theNews-Leader

The Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival is just
around the corner and people will soon have the
opportunity to view the artwork of students in 16
public schools and three private schools from all
over Nassau County.
Linda Morris, director of Elementary
Education for Nassau County, is the coordinator
for this student art show. This is a vast effort
that involves her whole staff in addition to per-
sonnel from every school in the county. It is a
tremendous source of pride to the young stu-
dents from kindergarten through grade 12 who
have the opportunity to show their works to fam-
ily, friends and the community.
The Nassau County School Art Exhibit is sup-
ported by the Island Art Association. The chair-
man from IAA this year is Camille Breen, who is
both a teacher in the school system and an artist
as well. She coordinates the contributions made
by the Island Art Association toward this exhi-
bition.
The Nassau County School Art Exhibit will be
located on North Fourth Street in front of the
Fernandina Beach branch library. It is free and
open to the public. Student entries are in multi-
ple categories to include painting, drawing, sculp-
ture and crafts. Each student is judged according
to their age group and the winners receive rib-


bons and cash awards. First, second, and third
place monetary awards are provided by the local
school district. The "Best of Show" award is
sponsored by Ship's Lantern, an art gallery. This
award is given in honor of Robert Lannon, one of
the original organizers of the Isle of Eight Flags
Shrimp Festival. Participants can also receive
gift certificates from local businesses honoring
their superior artwork.
The Island Art Association works not only
with the Nassau County School Art Exhibit but
promotes other programs in the community to
encourage young artists' education and growth.
IAA has obtained a grant from the Woodcock
Foundation. This grant money provides free chil-
dren's art classes to the public and is coordinat-
ed by Diane Hamburg. In addition, the IAA pro-
vides scholarship awards to graduating seniors
ranging from $1,000 to $2,000. The student win-
ner's school receives $500 for its art program. IAA
also has an annual countywide judged high school
art exhibit, which is displayed at the art gallery.
In this current economic climate, budgets are
Reduced and art programs in particular suffer.
This year the Island Art Association was able to
provide each middle and high school art teacher
with $400 for art supplies. Funds raised during
Shrimp Festival and through Patron Program
donations support the Island Art Association
community outreach programs and school art
teachers and their student artists.

Kai Middlebrook tries to put Nick LeBlanc on his back Wednesday during wrestling practice at Fernandina Beach High School. Middlebrook
will be wrestling this summer in Austria for Team USA.



Local wrestler earns trip to Europe

BETH JONES
News-Leader
Kai Middlebrook, 11, will get his
first stamp in that brand-new passport
this summer when the fifth grader vis-
its Vienna, Austria, with Team LISA.
He and his teammates will be pardci-
pating in the Youth Friendship Games
-like the Junior Olympics, but on an
international level.
I 'We started going -tr 'wrestllfi-'
matches at the high school and I got
interested," Middlebrook said.
His father, Randy, a former high
school wrestler, decided to help form a
wrestling program for middle and ele-
mentary school students. Middlebrook
has been wrestling a year and a half.
"Iloveit," he said.
Middlebrook wrestled in the LISA
Wrestling national championship for
middle and elementary school students
March 13-14 at Disney's Wide World of
Sports in Orlando. He took a fifth-place
medal.
"I don't know how many kids were
in my weight class," he said. 'I wrestled
six matches." :
The medal, round match was a
thriller. .
"I had a pretty good lead in the first
and second period," Middlebrook said.
"I almost pinned him once."
But his opponent was relentless and
evened the score at 9-9.
"With 20 seconds left, we were both
jostling for position," Middlebrook said,,
"Both of us were dead tired. I reversed
him and put him on his back."
He won 11-9.
Middlebrook has competed and
placed in several USA Wrestling tour-
naments and was selected as a "sports
ambassador" through People to People,
a program founded by President
Dwight Eisenhower more than a half

Exercise reduces risk ofcancers return


A t the annual meeting of the American Society
of Clinical Oncology in Orlando, researchers
presented data that showed that exercise
may play a significant role in the fight against
cancer. Specifically, exercise was shown to reduce the
risk of cancer returning in someone who had previous-
ly been diagnosed and treated for colon cancer.
The latest results show patients previously treated
for colon cancer were about half as likely to die or have
their tumors return if they participated in a regular.
exercise activity when compared to those who rarely
exercised. The study was led by Dr. Jeffrey A. ,
Meyerhardt, M.D., M.P.H., of the Dana-Farber Cancer
Institute in Boston.
The study included 832 people who were still alive
one year after undergoing surgery followed by
chemotherapy to treat colon cancer. After nearly two
years, those who exercised the equivalent of "moder-
ate-paced" walking an hour a day, six days a week were
49 percent less likely to have a recurrence or die, com-
pared with those who rarely exercised, Meyerhardt,
said.
Other forms of exercise such as jogging a few times
a week or playing tennis were also shown to benefit..
Exercise has been shown in the past to reduce the risk
of colon cancer from ever developing, but this is the
first such study to show it can directly affect survival
after diagnosis and treatment.
Colon cancer is the third most common form of can-
cer and most commonly affects those over the age of
50. Common signs and symptoms of colon cancer
include blood in the stool, anemia, abdominal pain,
marked change in bowel habits and an unexplained


weight loss. For those without a sig-
nificant family history, it is recom-
mended beginning at age 50 you
undergo a screening physical exami-
nation, radiologic Barium study and a
1 colonoscopy. The American Cancer-
-': Society estimates that nearly 105,000
Americans will develop colon cancer
this year; more than 56,000 will die of
the disease.
Exercise continues to show a posi-
SPORTS tive influence over cancer. Athletic
endeavors have been shown in the
MEDICINE past to reduce the risk of the develop-

prostate cancer. The study showed
men over age 65 who engaged in at least-three hours of
vigorous physical activity, such as running, biking or
swimming, per week had a nearly 70 percent lower risk
of being diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer or
dying from the disease.

Some day, a bike trail loop


BECA GRIMM
For the News-Leader
The paved path will
circle 20 miles
long, encompassing
Amelia Island.
Movers and shakers of the
non-motorized variety will be,
able to cruise peacefully and
safely separated from traffic
' accompanied by wildlife,:
canopy roads, sand dunes
and the surf.
For visitors and residents
of Fernandina Beach, the
trail running from the Talbot
Islands to Fort Clinch will
provide a way to see the
area:
,The dream is a good one
now all that's left to do is
transform it into something
tangible.
Five years ago, Amelia
Island resident Phil Scanlan's
citizen-run Amelia Island ,
Association group promoted
a federal grant that awards
roughly $1 million a year for
trail construction. The
money would provide for the
construction of a 12-foot-wide
paved'path for non-motorized,
transportation around the
island.
Scanlan had help in seek-
ing this grant by way of the ,
city and county recreation
departments, rangers at the
island's state parks and Mike
Pikula, president of the'
Nassau Bike Club and chair
of Nassau Comnmunity Trails.
The trail is also pegged to
assist in connecting to the
East Coast Greenway trail
system, which runs from
Calais, Maine, to Key West,
connecting to Jacksonville
via the Talbot Islands and to
Georgia through the
Cumberland Sound Ferry
'from Ferndina'
The Amelia Island Trail
would stretch from the south
eiid of the island all the way
up to Fort Clinch, creating a
loop. Walkers, joggers and
bicyclists.would be able to
directly access Amelia Island
State Park, the Fernandina
Beach Historic District,
beach accesses and other
points of interest from the
trail.
"There's a lot of nice, little
scenic places to bike around
here,"' Pikula said.
Scanlan agrees. He says
even if a person isn't a fan of
cycling, there's a nice aes-
thetic the path is sure to
implement on the island.
"I'm not a bike advocate,"


BECA GRIMM/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
"The peace and quiet, not having.to worry about vehicles. It's nice to hear the
wildlife and not cars," said Michelle Waterman, a park ranger mountain biking on
her day off along this trail in the Talbot Islands State Park, above. Right, bicyclists
cross the ferry from St. Marys, Ga., to Fernandina to continue their ride along the
East Coast Greenway Trail.


Scanlan said.. "I'm a let's-
make-this-place-a-better-place
advocate."'
With an appealing recre-
ation menu, Amelia Island is
sure to attract more tourists
once the path is completed.
-Bike Florida Executive
Director Linda Crider
described the finished route
to have potential as a large
pull in green tourism in the
Winter 2008-2009 edition of
the East Coast Greenway
News.
And the recreational
aspect is only part of the
attraction of the completed
trail. Scanlan is petitioning td
implement "spokes" off the
planned path to public
schools as a part.of the
national Safe Routes to
School program, also known"
as the SRTS program.
The SRTS program aims
to create a healthy, more,&
wholesome alternative for
students to get to school in a
safe way. With the introduc-
tion of the spokes, school-
children will be more apt to
adopt healthy exercising
habits and decrease their
reliance on gasoline-powered
transportation.
Although the prospect of


a completed trail is exciting
to many on the island, the
trail probably won't be fin-
,ished until 2015.
"Things are happening
but it's excruciatingly slow,"
Pikula'said.
The plan is to;connect
existing routes, like the off-
road trail at Fort Clinch, but
there are still much left to
construct.
"I think it's really impor-
tant to have a long-term
plan," Scanlan said.
Securing the funds to
erect this path has proven to
,be a tough task. 'Those of us
who want it don't have mil-


lions of dollars t, just throw
at it," said Piktula, a ieli -c
from several occupations
including three decades in
the Air Force and a stint at
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office.
The Amelia Island Trail.
could use better backing
from community, both from
the capital standpoint and
otherwise.
"The community needs to
come together," Scanlan said.
'The only thing that can
make change is citizens."
