Take precautions
Florida health officials urge residents and visitors to prac-
tice the "5 D's":
* Dusk and Dawn - Avoid being outdoors during mosqui-
to feeding times.
* I)Dress - Make sure to wear clothing that covers most of
your skin.
* DEFT- Use repellents that contain up to 30 percent of the
chemical compound commonly known as I)EET. Other repel-
lents may contain other chemicals or natural oils, but typical-
ly don't last as long.
* Drainage.- Check around your property and eliminate
areas of standing water, which is where mosquitoes lay eggs.
Remove water in old tires, buckets, garbage (,jrii and (-other c n-
tainers where water collects. Check clogged -'i tlrrs and flat
roofs that may have poor drainage. Fill in holes :or dips in the
ground that collekc water. Level the ground ar',und your home

materials rather than leave
them overnight," McCrary
wrote in an e-mail.
"For the most part (the
cabanas) are eventually
removed," Bach said. She
noted, however, that for some
people inexpensive beach
equipment is just not worth
the trouble of packing up and
carting away.
Mayor Susan Steger says
the abandonment of equip-
ment on local beaches has
been frustrating, but that she
is pleased with how city staff is
handling the issue.
"(Abandoned cabanas) are
an eyesore on our beautiful


beaches, and they seem to
attract trash and they inter-
fere with sea-turtle nesting,"
said Steger. "It's not just a
Fernandina Beach problem...
it's important to communicate
that cabanas are not allowed
on the beach overnight."
"The situation is more
tourist-oriented," said Steger.
"We need citizens who rent
and have family and friends
(in the city) to get the word
out."
The city commission is
scheduled to consider
Tuesday how to improve
education and enforcement
efforts regarding -beach
cabanas.

Happy Birthday America!


J uly , is known as the
birthday of our nation
and this year we'll cele-
brate its 233rd anniver-
sary when we pay trib-
ute to le day on which
dreams of a new nation
became reality.
Independence Day reigns
the most popular of national
holidays. Americans celebrate
its past historical importance
with the lavishness of present
day grandeur. During parades
visitors will stand tall with
hand over heart and once
again declare true patriotism
to our nation's icon, the
American flag, as it leads our
communities in thousands of
parades across the nation.
Throughout the day we'll get
to experience the culinary
arts supplied by the people of
our melting pot nation and
quite possibly experience the
infamous all-American pas-
time, a baseball game. Then
at day's end, the grand finale
of all, an explosive opulence
of fireworks will renew with
patriotic fervor what it truly
means to be a citizen of
world's greatest nation.
This federal holiday com-
memorates the adoption of '
the Declaration of
Independence, a document
which emphatically avowed a
new freedom from the tyran-
ny of British rule. Its ratifica-
tion by representatives of the
13 colonies on July 4, 1776,
declared independence from
the Kingdom of Great Britain.
It was a day that outspokenly
stated - a new democracy was
born.
In the middle of the 18th
century, differences in
lifestyles and economic inter-
ests formed between those
living in the colonies and the
distant control mongers of
England. The British govern-
ment tried to regulate colonial
commerce and in 1765 when
the British Parliament imple-
mented the fourth Stamp Act
it was no wonder violent colo-
nial outcries were heard
across the seas of the
Atlantic. They considered
these acts a degradation of
their rights, which condoned
taxation without representa-
tion. The Townshend Acts of
1767, which led to further
assert imperial authority over
the colonies. resulted in

the
S Continental
Congress

committee
of five
ETERAN'S members
CORNER to draft a
statement
S of inde-
Debbie pendence.
Walsh Those
members


included Benjamin Franldin,
John Adams, Thomas
Jefferson, Roger Sherman
and Robert R. Livingston.
The original Declaration of
Independence, which now
resides in the Exhibition Hall
of the National Archive in
Washington, D.C., serves as
one of America's most treas-
ured symbols. It identifies the
moment our nation was born
and very openly depicts justi-
fication for its birth. The doc-
ument explicitly reports the
need of the 13 colonies to
detach themselves from
England and vividly details a
complete list of dissatisfac-
tions which led our forefa-
thers to finally demand inde-
pendence.
Many will recognize these
motivating words which are
part of the Declaration of
Independence and eloquently
hand-scribed by Thomas
Jefferson: "... We hold these
Truths to be self-evident, that
all Men are created equal,
that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain
unalienable Rights, that
among these are Life, Liberty,
and the pursuit of
Happiness..."
Since that day in 1776
those born in America and
thousands others who left
their native countries immi-
grating to the "land of the free
and the home of the brave"
have continued to seek the
American dream. That vision
still includes freedom from
oppression, taxation without
representation along with the
rights to free speech and to
assemble without fear of
reprisal.
Both John Adams and
Thomas Jefferson, two found-
ing fathers of America and the
bnly two men who signed the
declarationn of Independence
to go on to become president
of the United States, died on


the same day, July 4, 1826.
Both patriots passed away at
home of unrelated circum-
stances, ironically on the 50th
anniversary of the signing of
the Declaration of
Independence. Is it symbolic?
Many believe it is.
"Old Glory," adopted in
1777 as, the official flag of the
United States, is one of
many patriotic symbols our
illustrious nation has adopted
since the signing the
Declaration of Independence.
This Worldly recognized rep-
resentation of the American
people receives its own spe-
cial recognition each year on
Flag Day, June 14.
When Americans sought a
symbol of unity, the Liberty
Bell was chosen to fulfill that
requirement. It rang constant-
ly throughout colonial history
calling for the people of our
nation to "Come Hear Yea."
That's why on each July 4 at 2
p.m. (EST) children who are
descendants of Declaration
signers symbolically tap the
Liberty Bell 13 times while
bells across the nation also
ring 13 times in honor of the
patriots from the original 13
states.
The American bald eEagle
is our nation's national
emblem. President John E
Kennedy wrote, "The
Founding Fathers made an
appropriate choice when they
selected the bald eagle as the
emblem of the nation. The
fierce beauty and proud inde-
pendence of this great bird
aptly symbolizes the strength
and freedom of America...." It
is the most pictured bird in
America, for it graces the
backside of billions of one-dol-
lar bills.
"I do solemnly swear that I
will support and defend the
Constitution of the United
States against all enemies, for-
eign and domestic; that I will
bear true faith and allegiance
to the same...." is something
everyone entering military
service and public office will
affirm. Our Constitution,

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/EDGAR E. ROBERTs/AMERICAN LEGION PosI 174


American Legion Post 174 back to serve community


American Legion Post 174
was initially formed in Fernan-
dina Beach back in 1946. Post
Commander at that time was
the late Mr. Richard A.
Coakley. The post was created
to serve the desire of African-
American veterans to promote
American ideals, and to serve
their community. The post
remained active until its char-
ter was canceled in November
1999. That is, until now!
Post 174 is happy to report
that it has again received its
American Legion Permanent
Charter, and is again serving
the community. Consistent
with our changing demo-
graphic, and our efforts to fos-
ter diversity, the post is open
to, and aggressively recruiting
all honorably discharged area
veterans who have served


during a peri-
od of war, or
conflict.
Our mis-
' sion is codi-
fied in our pre-
amble to the
constitution of
Roberts The American
__ Legion:
*To
uphold and defend the
Constitution of the United
States of America;
* To maintain law and
order;
* To foster and perpetuate
a 100 percent Americanism
* To preserve the memo-
ries and incidents of our asso-
ciations in the great wars;
* To inculcate a sense of
individual obligation to the
community, state and nation;


* To combat the autocracy
of both the classes and the
masses;
* To make right the mas-
ter of might;
* To promote peace and
goodwill on earth;
* To safeguard and trans-
mit to posterity the principles
of justice, freedom and
democracy;
* To consecrate and sancti-
fy our comradeship by our
devotion to mutual helpful-
ness.
As a result of a long period
of non-use, the post's physical
location at 200 South 12th St.
has fallen into serious disre-
pair requiring extensive
rebuilding. The post is tem-
porarily being housed at the
Peck Center in Fernandina.
According to Commander


'The post is actively conducting fundraising
activities while at the same time beginning
our community service efforts.'
COMMANDER THOMAS (TOMMY) SANDERS
AMERICAN LEGION POST 174


Thomas (Tommy) Sanders,
"... the post is actively con-
ducting fundraising activities
while at the same time begin-
ning our community service
efforts. We will gladly accept
all donations towards our
building fund, and are actively
seeking the goodwill and trust
of the community we serve."
In keeping with Post 174's
desire to serve the communi-
ty, the post is sponsoring a
community day on July 11


from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the
Martin Luther King Jr./Elm
Street Center. All are invited
for hamburgers, hot dogs,
chips and drinks. They will
also have fun things for the
kids. The post will also be
sponsoring a blood drive at
the same location and times.
The post will use this first
event to show its commitment
to service to the community.
For membership, please

COMMUNITY


FRIDAY, j uj 3.2009 / N::WS-LEAD;R


Cedar Bay has a full-time minister


Mark 1:22: "He taught them as onee
who had authority." Our purpose: glorify
God, Romans 16:6; our vision: Christ-
likeness, Matthew 22:37-39; our mission:
make disciples, Matthew 28:18-20. First
Baptist Church of Gray Gables.
Family Mission Trip is July 13-17.
This mission trip will allow families to
serve together. You will be doing
Vacation Bible School and servant proj-
ects. Youth Camp was June 22-26.
Cedar Bay Baptist Church is happy
to announce that Bro. Bill Tyler has
been called to full-time ministry at the
church. He has served well in bi-voca-
tional ministry for the past 16 years.
God is at work at CBBC and He has now
opened the door for full-time ministry.
The church is excited to see what God
has planned for Cedar Bay.
As you can appreciate, we at
Springhill Baptist Church don't want to
rush out and just grab any man for our
new pastor. We want the man God has
specifically prepared for thigh next phase
in the life of Springhill. We also want to
emphasize right up front that no one is
being considered at present. The elders
have been working on formulating a
process to put in place as we begin the
search for whom God has called to
become our next pastor.
We will keep you informed as the
church walks through this process. We
have been blessed to have such a man of
God as Pastor Jackie Hayes and his fam-
ily. They have been such an integral part
of our family for so many years. We
need to be in prayer as to whom God is
preparing to lead us next. As your eld-
ers, we ask for your assistance as we


* ?I journey together in our
. search.
SJohn Ketchum will
serve as our
& l I spokesman/chairman
1 of the committee and
as such will be the only
'"" person to whom you
should address ques-
tions during this
HILMDAS process. This is to
HEAR- ensure that the infor-
ABOUTS mation we are passing
on to you is consistent
in its content and inter-
Hilda pretation. We will begin
Higginbothami collecting resumes for
the next 2-3 months
before starting any review. Bill
Sullenger will be the collector of these.
Above all, please continue to lift up
Springhill and God's will for us in your
prayers.
Dear Springhill family, I would like to
take this opportunity to share with you
an exciting adventure thatGod will soon
take me on. I am ecstatic to inform you
that the Lord has called me to
Nicaragua. I have always thought that I
would enjoy doing missions and see the
awesome work that God is doing in our
world. The last few years I have really
felt that I have been living life day by
day and it has not had much substance-
until now. He is providing an opportuni-
ty for me to go and share the word of
God through foreign missions. This
July, I will be heading to the community
of Los Castros, Nicaragua, to build
homes for 28 families in need. In addi-
tion to building homes, we will also be


providing household items for them to
use. I leave July 18 and will be there
until July 26. I thank God for the oppor-
tunity Ihat is set before me and trust He
will meet my needs. I would be honored
if you would be a prayer partner with me
in this ministry. If you feel led to support
me financially, that would be fabulous;
however, prayer support is my primary
request. The cost of this mission trip is
$1,365. This amount covers my expens-
es from airfare to food. All funds are
being collected through the mission
agency; Project Hope. Checks need to
be made payable to Project Hope and
then sent to me so I can mail the checks
to my sponsors.
I am so elated because not only am I
able to go, but some members of my
family are going as well. I am so thank-
ful that I will be able to share this won-
derful experience with my family to see
the work that God is doing in each of
our lives. I can't wait to see how God will
use us and what He will teach us
through this trip. I hope not only to be a
blessing to those we serve, but also to
you. My desire is to go as your repre-
sentative of Jesus Christ. I hope you will
prayerfully consider being part of this
ministry. Thank you so much! Angela
Higgins.
My 35th year of penning this
"Hearabouts" is coming up this July. I
still love doing it and pick up my legal
pad every day. This keeps me from
burning the midnight oil. Thanks for the
nice comments I receive. Your news is
appreciated.
"May our Great Heavenly Father con-
tinue to keep us in His loving care."

So we do not lose heart.
Though our outer nature
Is wasting away, our
Inner nature is
being renewed
every day.


When asked where we come from,
most of us think of our parents or a
geographic locale rather than the
ultimate source of our being, which is
Spirit. We come from God, and the
only reason that most of us don't
recognize this is that our bodies
delude us into thinking that we are
separate from everything else.
Ultimately, we are all connected
through this connection with the one
Spirit, but often our individual egos
may not allow us to see this. Our
bodies convince us that we are
unique, separate beings. As physical
beings, we are indeed unique and
separate from all else, but as spiritual
beings, we are part of a greater
whole. As physical beings, we
undergo constant change, and will
eventually die, but as spiritual beings,
we are eternal. We should remember
then, that'we are cor li
to God, and are inde
of God, an emanatlo
from a holy source. I

FRIDAY, July 3, 2009/News-Leader


RELIGION


Justice, consequences and a brand-new start


As a kid, 1 stole something
from a store. Not a great
thing for a pastor to admit,
I know, but it's the truth.
I'm not sure what got into me that
day, but it wasn't good.
What's interesting is that my par-
ents have very high standards of
integrity and had taught all five of us
Goyette children well. Either way,
somehow on that day I caved in to a
temptation that must have come
right from the pit of hell. And to
think, I was willing to risk it all for a
silly fishing lure.
Well, as the story goes, and as
God would have it, they caught me. I
was terrified. As soon as I walked
out the front door a man grabbed
my arm and told me to come with
him. Though I'm not even sure if I
was a teenager yet, the thought of


PULPIT
NOTES

Pastor
Rob Goyette


prison flooded my
mind. What would I
tell mom and dad?
Oh, God bless my
mom and dad.
After being
escorted upstairs to
a secret room that
overlooked the
entire store, empty-
ing my pocket of
the lone fishing
lure and pleading
for mercy, they
called my parents.
Shocked, embar-
rassed and, I'm


sure, very disappointed in me, they
guaranteed the store that I would do
whatever I needed to make things
right. Thankfully, my parents meant
what they said. In the windup, I did-


n't have to go to jail but served my
time in other ways.
Now that brings me to the topic
of this article: Justice. You know the
act of putting things right by hand-
ing out appropriate consequences.
Just like slapping someone's hand
for committing murder would not be
just; neither would life in prison be
fitting for a kid taking a fishing lure.
Why? The answer is simple. In order
for justice to occur, the punishment
for a crime must be equal to the
crime. Justice demands a just conse-
quence - nothing more, nothing
less.
When I consider the cross of
Jesus Christ and this principle ofjus-
tice, it all becomes so clear. God, by
nature, is absolutely just. In the
same way our country's justice sys-
tem strives to right wrongs, so God's


very nature demands justice.
Thankfully for us, God is not only
just but merciful. That's what Jesus
Christ dying on the cross is all
about. If justice could have been sat-
isfied some other way, God would
have never sent His only begotten
Son to die on our behalf.
The short of it is this; According
to the Bible, we all have sinned and
broken God's laws. "There is no one
righteous, no not one."(Romans
3:10) That said, just like the security
guard who watched me from the
secret room upstairs, God knows
every one of our thoughts, words
and deeds.
Sure, you might try to escape
this life undetected but let me
assure you, justice is waiting just
outside the door and demands an
answer from us all. To me that's


what makes the Good News of Jesus
Christ so good.
Let me say it like this. None of us
has the ability to adequately pay for
our sins; so God, in His love for us,
came and did it for us - His perfect
sinless life in exchange for ours. By
doing this, He satisfied both the
demands of justice and our need for
love.
According to the scripture, if you
believe this simple but profound
truth, and that God raised Jesus
from the dead as a sign that you are
forgiven, you are saved. That's right,
when it's all said and done, and jus-
tice demands an account of our lives,
those who have received Jesus as
SSavior and Lord shall be totally free
from the penalty of sin because He
paid it for you.
Now if you ask me, that's Good

Salt-tolerant palms come in a variety of shapes and sizes


Q I want to plant some salt
.tolerant palms near a
marsh area. 1 like how palns
provide a tropical look but
since it is near the salt marsh
I know I will have only a limit-
ed number of choices. What
would you suggest? NV
A The following are salt
.tolerant palms: Cabbage
palm, Sabal palmetto, saw pal-
metto, Serenoa repens, and
Washingtonia palm,
Washingtonia spp.
The cabbage palm, which
is our native state palm, can
reach heights up to 60 feet.
The Washingtonia can grow to
80 feet tall. The saw palmetto
grows in a more horizontal
manner but reaches heights
up to 10 feet. There are native
varieties of saw palmetto cur-
rently available at nurseries in
which the fronds are more
blue-gray then yellow green.
Moderately salt tolerant
varieties are Canary Island
date palm (30 feet tall),
Phoenix canariensis, European
fan palm (10 feet tall),
Chamaerops humilis, Lady
palm (15 feet), Rhapis excelsa,
Pindo palm (30 feet tall),
Butia capitata, windmill palm
(20 feet tall), Trachycarpusfor-
tune, and the native coontie (4
feet tall), Zamia pumila.

using palm
fertilizers
SBecky ordi with an 8-2-
12-4 (N-P-K-

fertilizer should be applied
once during spring, summer
and fall.
Once established, these
palms do not require heavy
amounts of irrigation so be
sure to not treat them the
same as lawngrass. This is
especially true when dis-
cussing palm. nutrient needs.
High nitrogen on palms can
be detrimental to their overall
health and ability to withstand
environmental stress.
.What are some blueber-
.ry varieties that will do
well in our area? BS
A.Blueberries require a
.soil pH of 4.0 to 5.5. At
higher soil pH values, tissue

as iron and zinc become defi-

cient. Deficiency symptoms
develop on new growth and
plants lose vigor.
If you are not sure about
your soil pH, bring in a sam-
ple to the extension office and
we will test it for you. The
best time to plant blueberries
is from mid-December to mid-
February but often they are
only available now in the local
garden centers. If you pur-
chase them now, go ahead
and put them in the ground.
Be sure you check for circling
roots and make the appropri-
ate cuts if they are found.


It is very important to not
plant blueberries too deeply
as this will cause problems in
the future. Apply a 2- to 3-inch
layer of pine mulch to help
lower pH, but be sure to keep
it away from the trunk of the
shrub.
We recommend you select
rabbiteye varieties as they are
less susceptible to root rot
and are more drought toler-
ant. Rabbiteye produce later
in the year, which means they
are not as susceptible to
freeze damage. It is important
so select at least three differ-


ent varieties of rabbiteye as
they require cross pollination
to produce the desired fruit.
When putting the shrubs in
the garden allow seven feet
between each shrub.
Early season varieties are
Beckyblue, Climax and
Bonita. Purchase some late
bloomers such as Brightwell,
Powderblue, Tifblue and
Woodard, which produce very
well in our area. You should
have no trouble locating any
of these varieties.
I would encourage any
homeowner to grow blueber-
ries as they are very easy and
provide wonderful fall leaf
color once the delicious berry
is gone.
.With all the new rules
.about lowering the phos-
phorus on fertilizers I am con-
cerned about my vegetable
garden. What kind of fertilizer
should I use? Do I use the
same one I use on my lawn?
CS
A.You have asked some
.very good questions.
Those of us with home gar-
dens should use a complete
fertilizer such as 8-8-8 or 10-
10-10 (N-P-K), which will con-
tain nitrogen, phosphorus
and potassium. Notice each of
the elements is applied in
equal amounts. Vegetables

NEiWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH. FLORIDA


Climb on a surfboard at free clinic July 11


BETH JONES
News-Leader

SSurfing can be an expensive
sport - $600 for a new board
- but young and old can give
the sport a try for free July 11
during the second annual Surf
Clinic, which is being spon-
sored again by Caf6 Karibo.
The surf'clinic is slated from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sadler
Road beach access at Slider's
restaurant on South Fletcher
Avenue.
The inaugural event last
summer drew more than 200
potential surfers.
"It was too overwhelming,"
said pro surfer Sean Poynter,
who is organizing this year's
clinic. "We're limiting it to 160
participants this year. It should
run much more smoothly. We
have more support this year."
To ensure one of those 160
spots, participants are encour-
aged to sign up in advance at
Caf6 Karibo, 27 N. Third St.
Anyone signing up that day will
be assigned a later time.
Participants will be divided
into groups of 20 and will be
given an hour of instruction,
starting with three stations -
water safety, board etiquette
and an exercise session ("to
loosen up for the activity of-surf-
ing," Poynter said) - before
hitting the water for 30 minutes
of hands-on surf lessons.
"Surfboards are expensive,"
Poynter said. "It gives that op-
portunity to people who are
interested in the idea of surfing.
They can come out and try to
do it."
Poynter said last year's clin-
ic had an impact on everyone
involved.
"My brother gave his board
away to a kid who couldn't
finance a board," Poynter said.
"It meant the world to him and
his parents. We're just trying to
give back."
The clinic isn't just for kids,
however.
"We had a 72-year-old lady
out there last-year," Poynter
said. "It's a free surf clinic for
anyone interested in seeing

what surfing is all about.
"All of U & in the water will be

experience in the water. And
we'll be there with your kids in
the water. It will be safe."


In addition to all the surf-
ijrg; 'i:i .. will b_.rafflgs and

"We had a great turnout

good time,"' Poynter said. "The

PIRATE SOFTBALL CAMP

SUBMITrrI'
"Attitude is Everything" was the theme as 50 girls ages 6-12 attended the Fernandina Beach High School Softball
Camp June 15-18. Coach Donnie Fussell helped the girls improve their batting, outfield and infield skills while
keeping a positive attitude.



New board of directors for Family Driven Softball League


With a successful first season com-
pleted, the Family Driven Softball League
has selected new officers for the 2010 sea-
son. The first year's board comprised most-
ly of members from the Springhill Baptist
Church's men's ministry. This was part of
league president Ernie Stuckey's vision
when beginning the league.
As planned, the first season brought
members from other churches who shared
Stuckey's passion. As the season pro-
gressed, the men's ministry's responsibil-
ities decreased as new league members'
responsibilities increased. The new board
of directors share in Stuckey's passion to
build a league where faith and Christian val-
ues take center stage.
The board members are Stuckey (pres-
ident), Chris Spivey (vice president), Ada
Cook (secretary), Bill Sullenger (treasur-


er), John Culbreth (fundraising chairman),
Herman Cook (ASA/FDSL representa-
tive), David Keay (field coordinator).
The excitement surrounding this new
board is that the new officers are a hard
working group. Work has already begun at
the Springhill Softball Complex for the
2010 season. Roughly 100 pine trees have
been cut down along the outfield fence.
The next work day at the complex will
be July 18 as work will begin to install a
sprinkler system and a scoreboard.
The scoreboard was donated by Flori-.
da's First Coast ASA and the city of Jack-
sonville Parks and Recreation Department.
The long-range plan is to have lights
installed at the field as all indications show
the league may double in size for the 2010
season.
The FDSL's drawing card was evident


every weekend during the season. More
than 70 games were played in 2009 yet not
one argument with an umpire took place.
Many families came out to either par-
ticipate or watch the fun as the complex
stands were full every weekend. They
brought picnic lunches or would purchase
food from the concession stand, which
raised funds to send families on mission
trips.'
Between innings and games, the ball-
park was filled with contemporary
Christian music. Every game began with
both teams in prayer and every game
ended with prayer.
If you would like morb information on
how to become a member of-the FDSL or
'would be interested in volunteer work, call
Stuckey at 261-6083 or e-mail him at
egstuckey@bellsouth.net.

This Fourth of/uly,


handle with care


f you have not already
done so, many of you
will be setting off fire-
works this July 4 holiday.
I have two children myself
and, like most kids, they love
setting them off. However,
we always stress the proper
use because the risks of
injury are very evident.
According to the
Consumer Product Safety
Commission, approximately
9,000 people will be treated
for fireworks-related injuries
during the course of the year
with the majority of those
occurring around
Independence Day.
Last year, these injuries
occurred most often to the
hands (2,300 injuries), eyes
(1,500 injuries) and the head,
face and ear (1,400 injuries).
Most commonly, these
injuries are burns. In 2004
there were 11 fireworks-
related deaths. About one of
every three people injured
were children under 15 years
of age and males are injured
three times more often than
females.
Annually firecrackers are
associated with the greatest
number of injuries, followed
by sparklers and bottle rock-
ets. Sparklers accounted for
one-third of the injuries to
children less than five years
of age. Sparklers get very
hot (up to 1,000 degrees)
and should not be given to
young children.
Firecrackers often cause
injury because they are held
onto too long before throw-
ing or they are attempted to
be re-lit after a fuse has gone
out.
Use fireworks as they
were intended. Do not
attempt to combine the pow-
der from several fireworks
into one because this can
lead to unpredictable explo-
sions. Misdirected bottle
rockets can cause burns and
severe eye injuries, You
should also be aware of
where your missile is going
to land.


More
than 2,0000
structure or
vehicle
S fires were
started by
fireworks in
2004. These
fires result-
ed in $21
million in
SPORTS direct prop-
erty danm-
MEDICINE age.
Under
GREGORY Une
GREGORY the Federal
SMITH. M.D. Hazardous
- ... - Substances
Act, the
U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission prohibits
the sale of the most danger-
ous types of fireworks and
the components intended to
make them. The banned fire-
works include various large
aerial devices, M-80s, quar-
ter-sticks, half-sticks and
other large firecrackers. Any
firecracker with more than
50 milligrams of explosive
powder and any aerial fire-
work with more than 130
milligrams of flash powder is
banned under federal law as
are mail order kits and com-
ponents designed to build
these fireworks.
Over the past 10 years, 30
.percent of the injuries associ-
ated with fireworks have typ-
ically been caused by illegal
explosives or homemade
fireworks.

Doug Gies, left, jigs for live cigar minnows at the St. Marys sea buoy. Live cigar minnows are excellent live baits for a variety of trolling species and bottom game fish. An
unidentified angler, right, fights a big fish from the Fort Clinch fishing pier. A flood tide arrives at 6:22 a.m., which should offer excellent fishing from the popular fishing pier.

men this weekend. Reports of
king mackerel continue to .
come from the sea buoy at

Nassau live bottom, which is
located just five miles off-
shore of the southern tip of
Amelia Island.
Small boats shouldn't have
a problem navigating into the

Nassau Sound with a flood

an early morning flood tide,
king mackerel fishermen
should take advantage of the
Clear water conditions and
kingfish either along the

a few sharks, cobia, Spanish
mackerel and the occasional
tarpon. Summer fishing is
good.

King
mackerel
fishermen
will also find
plenty of
menhaden
schools
along the
beaches at
the southern
tip of Amelia
Island.
Ocean mullet
are also run-
ning in the
surf and
regarded as


premier live baits for king
mackerel.
Saltwater fishermen enter-
ing the ocean from the St.
Marys inlet will find plenty of
greenies schooling at the tip
of the St. Marys south jetty
stocks. Cigar minnows are
also schooling at the St.
Marys sea buoy.
There have been few
reports of bottom fishing
action at many of the offshore
fish havens, while most salt-
water fishermen are targeting
trolling species. However,
savvy fishermen often take a
few minutes of their fishing
day and rig live minnows to
bottom fishing tackle. Don't
waste your time to anchor; it
takes too much time. Drift
over your favorite kingfish
ledge and drip your live baits
down just to see if any excel-
lent eating red snapper or


so good

grouper are willing to bend a
saltwater fishing rod.
Backwater fishermen will
have an excellent tide to test
their topwater casting skills
with a flood tide arriving in
the backwaters just before 7
a.m. Good daylight arrives
just before 6 a.m, so get out
on those flats early. During
the hot summer fishing sea-
son when sea trout and red-
fish are really blasting topwa-
ter plugs, loud chuggers work
extremely well in the mullet
color pattern. However, a defi-
nite key to your topwater fish-
ing success is locating where
the schools of mullet are
working over flooded flats
and close to sea trout and red-
fish ambush points.
Gold spoons are working
for redfish during the flood
tide while retrieved at creek
mouths, over flooded oyster-
bars or close to points of
spartina mairsh grasses
Surf fishermen are finding
lots of sand fleas in the surf
and fishing them live on No. 4
kahle hooks for pompano
weighing to two pounds.
The News-Leader encour-
ages local anglers to submit
photographs of their catches. E-
mail photos to bjones@fbnews

OUTDOOR BRIEF


Surf fishermen need
license byAug 1
Flnrida'- resident saltwa-
ter anglers who fish from
shore or a structure affixed to
shore will need to buy a $7.50
(plus administrative and han-
dling fees) shoreline fishing
license by Aug. 1, unless they
have a regular resident salt-
water fishing license.
The new license applies
only to Florida resident salt-
water anglers who fish from
shore.
Resident anglers may pre-
fer to purchase the regular
recreational 'saltwater license
that covers them, no matter
where they fish for saltwater
species in Florida.
SFlorida has always re-
quired non-residents to have
a license when fishing from
shore and they will still need
to purchase a regular non-res-
ident saltwater fishing
license.
The new shoreline saltwa-
ter fishing license for resi-
dents goes on sale July 15. It
provides all of the same
exemptions as a regular


license, including senior citi-
zens, children, disabled peo-
ple who meet certain qualifi-
cations, active-duty military
personnel while home on
leave and anglers who fish
from a licensed pier.
In addition, the shoreline
license requirement includes
two new exemptions: anglers
drawing food stamps, tempo-
rary cash assistance or
Medicaid; and anglers fishing
in their home counties who
use cane poles or other gear
that does not depend on
mechanical retrieval.
At the request of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
the Florida Legislature
passed the new license
requirement to head off a fed--
eral license requirement that
will go into effect Jan. 1, 2010,
and will have a $15-$25 fee
beginning in 2011.
Florida's new shoreline
license exempts this state's
anglers from the federal
license requirement.

the new shoreline fishing
license, visit MyFWC.com.

American life in stories an(


For the News-Leader
C contemporary music genres
appear to be easy to define.
There's country/western,
rap, jazz, rock 'n' roll, heavy
metal - each with its own style and
message. But there's another kind
of music that's much harder to cate-
gorize, where the songs capture the
very essence of American life
through the ages. Some might think
of it as "folk music," "Americana" or
"Roots" music, mostly based on the
vagabond life of troubadours and
adventurers.
Gary Culley and Mark Elliott
have been playing this music togeth-
er for nearly 20 years. A chance
meeting at a writer's night after they
had each relocated to Nashville
proved the beginning of a songwrit-
ing and singing partnership that
continues today.
Known for their stellar guitar
playing and near-sibling harmonies,
the duo immediately connected with
audiences through their music. With


Ticket information
Culley and Elliott will perform
on Sunday at "An Evening of
Story & Song," the popular con-
cert series hosted by Mark and

sored by First Coast Community

place at Burns Hall, St. Peter's

'(Abandoned cabanas) are an eyesore
on our beautiful beaches, and they
seem to attract trash and interfere
with sea-turtle nesting.
MAirOR SUSAN STEGER




Beach cabanas


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Beach cabanas are a practical and
popular accessory that many people
use to enhance their beachgoing expe-
rience. But the city of Fernandina
Beach wants to remind both locals and
visitors that cabanas and other per-
sonal items are not allowed on the
beach overnight, and may eventually
be considered abandoned property.
According to City Attorney Tammi
Bach, complaints about abandoned
cabanas began to come in to City Hall
last summer, mostly from early-morn-
ing joggers and people walking their
dogs on the beach.
Bach said the deserted cabanas can
be an obstruction for sea turtles going
to and from the ocean to lay their eggs.
Cabanas and beach umbrellas can also
become dangerous during high winds,
which can pull them out of the sand
and turn them into projectiles.
Abandoned beach equipment also is
not aesthetically pleasing to many peo-
ple who visit Fernandina's beaches to

What didMichaelJackson mean toyou?


"I like Michael Jackson, I really do. His music was really good. I'm care-
ful about endorsing people, but he had a lot of talent and was handsome as
a young man. It's a great loss."
Jeanette Richo, Fernandina Beach


"The only thing I know is there are a lot of jokes about him. I have
about 15 of them, but Thriller" was a great album."
Ryan Morgan, Fernandina Beach


enjoy the unspoiled beauty.
Bach said that although law
enforcement officers are the only ones
allowed to remove abandoned prop-
erty, code enforcement officers have
been tagging the vacant cabanas to
remind people they must be removed
within 24 hours.
. In a few cases, code enforcement
has moved vacant cabanas back to the
property line. City staff also has spoken
to rental managers to remind them to
advise guests on the matter.
Bach said the city is making about
15 signs to inform beachgoers about
municipal rules on personal items.
According to Community
Development Director Marshall
McCrary, those signs are being put
up this week in the most popular beach
areas, as well as some more "prob-
lematic" areas around big condomini-
um communities.
"Our efforts are primarily focused
on educating and advising beachgo-
ers that they need to remove their

Preparation ]

The American Heart Association
urges the public to be prepared for car-
diac emergencies:
* Know the warning signs of cardiac
arrest. During cardiac arrest a victim
loses consciousness, stops normal
breathing and loses pulse and blood pres-
sure. They may suddenly collapse.
* Call 9-1-1 immediately to access the
emergency medical system if you see any
cardiac arrest warning signs.
* Give cardiopulmonary resuscitation
(CPR) to help keep the cardiac arrest vic-
tim. alive until emergency help arrives.
* If you don't know CPR or haven't
been trained, call 9-1-1 and push hard and
fast on the center of the chest until help
arrives.
Q: What is cardiac arrest?
A: Cardiac arrest is the sudden,
abrupt loss of heart function. It's not the
same as a heart attack. Sudden cardiac
arrest occurs when electrical impulses in
the heart become rapid or chaotic, which
causes the heart to suddenly stop beat-
ing. A heart attack occurs when the
blood supply to part of the heart muscle


key in cardiac emergencies


is blocked. A heart attack may cause car-
diac arrest.
Sudden death (also called sudden car-
diac death) occurs within minutes after
symptoms appear.
Q: What causes cardiac arrest?
A: The most common reason for
patients to die suddenly from cardiac
arrest is heart disease. Other factors
besides heart disease and heart attack
can cause cardiac arrest. They include
respiratory arrest, electrocution,
drowning, choking and trauma. Cardiac
arrest can also occur without any
known cause.
Q: Can cardiac arrest be reversed?
A: Brain death and permanent death
start to occur in just 4 to 6 minutes after
cardiac arrest. '
Cardiac arrest can be reversed if it's
treated within a few minutes with an elec-
tric shock to the heart to restore a nor-
mal heartbeat. This process is called
defibrillation.
A victim's chances of survival are
reduced by 7 to 10 percent with every
minute that passes without CPR and


defibrillation. Few attempts at resuscita-
tion succeed after 10 minutes.
Q: How many people survive cardiac.
arrest?
A: Each year, EMS treats nearly
300,000 people who suffer cardiac arrest
outside the hospital. More than 92 per-
cent of cardiac arrest victims don't sur-
vive to be discharged from the hospital.
In cities where defibrillation is provided
within 5 to 7 minutes, the survival rate is
as high as 30-45 percent.
Q: What can be done to increase the
survival rate?
A: Early CPR and rapid defibrillation
combined with early advanced care can
result in high long-term survival rates for
witnessed cardiac arrest.
If bystander CPR was initiated
more consistently, if AEDs were more
widely available and if every commu-
nity could achieve a 20 percent cardiac
arrest survival rate, an estimated
40,000 more lives could be saved each
year.

icanheart.org/cardiacarrest.

Annie "Belle" Lawrence of
Fernandina Beach and Forest
Park, Ga. passed away on June
24 at the age 84, soaring into
heaven proud of her many life-
time accomplishments.
Born: Lakewood, Ga. to
Elizabeth E Price (James Burt

Caroline S. and Rudolph Fast.
She learned life's lessons and
worked as an
apprentice
machinist on
the family farm

Belle graduated from the
Sacred Heart High School in
Atlanta, Ga. Belle took
Engineering Drawing courses
at Georgia School of
Technology (Ga. Tech), and
worked in the Engineering
Department at Southern Bell
thereafter.
Before she earned a driver's
license, she earned her pilot's
wings. Becoming bored with
her office job Belle left Atlanta
as a teenager to find her place in
aviation; she lived her dream of
working on and flying airplanes,
flying with many contemporary
female pilots in Amelia
Earhart's'99's. Belle ferried air-
planes around the US during
the 1940's additionally earning
a Parachute-rigger's license &

During the 40's and 50's she
rebuilt the fabric covered wings
and engines of many airplanes.
She moved to Deland, FL to
run her business rebuilding air-
planes, running the Airport
Fixed base Airport Operation
and teaching aircraft classes at
Stetson University. Her favorite
plane was her two metal-winged
ErCoupe's - one of which she
flew to air shows in Florida with
the 99's. She served in the Civil
Air Patrol at Atlanta Airport as
a paid employee of that auxil-
iary of the Air Force. Later, she
was a ticket agent for Delta Air
Lines, where she met and mar-
ried B.L. Lawrence. Pausing in
her flying quest, she raised two
sons; as that challenge was met,
she returned to the skies, again
flying and working at the Fulton
County Airport. Belle earned
an Associate Degree in Library
Science from Clayton State
Junior-College in 1977, and
worked with the Clayton
County Public Library.

The long

I was driving to work this morning when I
heard one of my favorite commentators
waxing eloquently about one of his biggest
pet peeves - people who tie up the left lane
on the highway. He had some pithy descrip-
tions of drivers who clog up hie left lane like
plaque does a coronary artery. He ended it
with a challenge to anyone who might be lis-
tening while engaging in such boorish behav-
ior. Something to the effect of, yeah, you. I'm
talking to you. You're an idiot.
Fast-forward to the end of the same work-
day. I'm driving home from work. It's raining
(pick your cliche): Buckets. Harder than a
horse can pee on a flat rock. Bad enough to
make Noah wish he'd built two arks. A gully-
washer. A frog-drowner.
Anyway, I'm driving along safely beneath
the posted speed limit with my wipers and
headlights on, taking care not to get too close
to anyone ahead of me and generally being
cautious when I encounter HIM. That would be
the culprit who peeves my pet the hardest: Mr.
Doofus, driving blithely along using only park-
ing lights. You know, the little amber lights on
your car you're only supposed to use when
your car is stationary in some place other than
on a highway? The ones activated by the same
little switch that makes the big bright lights
come on? Yeah. That one, Doofus. There's a
law, brainiac. Look it up and memorize it
before taking to the road in the rain again.
People who drive without any lights at all
are bad enough. Maybe they at least forgot.
But how do you explain the mentality that


road to Doofusville


says, "hImnun, I'm only
gonna pull this little switch
partway out?" Incredible!
But it gets worse.
S ' Doofus was driving a solid
black SUV that, in the greatly
tI diminished visibility, made
him look like a stealth
bomber. You practically need-
ed radar to see him until he
CUP OF was only a couple of car
JOE lengths away and headed my
way. I gave him a friendly off-
on reminder with my head-
Joe Palmer lamps to let him know that
playing highway hide and go
seek in a torrential downpour is a deadly
game. What was Doofus' polite response? He
gave me the on-off with his headlights. As if to
say, "Yes, yes. I understand that I'm creating
chaos on the roadway but I really don't have
time to bother thank you very very much
goodbye."
I drove on fantasizing about being dictator
for a day, wherein Doofus and all his kindred
would be left standing on the side of the road,
sans automobiles or driver's license, and hold-
ing big signs like those you used to see kids in
high school walking around with stuck to their
backsides that read, "I'm a dork. Someone
please kick me."
Doofus has a roadkill cousin almost as
annoying and dangerous. He's the loboto-
mized one you see driving along in the rain
with his emergency flashers going blinkety-


blinkety-blinkety. Translation: Idiot-idiot-idiot.
I counted a half dozen of Idiot flashellus
floridiia on a two-mile stretch of AA.
They call those things emergency flashers for
a reason. That list of Thou Shalts and Thou
Shalt Nots also known as Florida Statutes
says very clearly that thou shalt not drive with
thy emergency flashers on. There's a very
good reason for this, gentle idiots. Normal
drivers coming up behind you see flashing
emergency lights and think, "Oh #@%! Stalled
car just ahead," and then take evasive action,
which on dry pavement might not even merit
the squeal of rubber on asphalt but which on
pavement submerged in rain, snow or ice -
thank God we don't worry much about that
here - can result in a nasty accident. Of
course, the flashing idiot will just glance in his
rearview mirror and congratulate himself:
"Whew! Sure glad I've got my flashers on
where everyone can see me!"
Most of them have their faces pressed
against the windshield and a death grip on the
wheel, motoring along scared to death, think-
ing that they're engaging in safe driving
behavior and not realizing that those blinking
lights are a flashing billboard to their stupidity.
Scared of the rain? Here's a. clue. Park it.
I hope all the doofuses - or is the plural
doofii? - driving along in the rain with only
their parking lights on read this. And also the
idiots who drive with their emergency flashers
activated.
Get off the road, ya morons.

VIEWPOINT/STATE REP. JANET ADKINS/FERNANDINA BEACH


Job cream


session in early May, I have
given more than a dozen pre-
sentations on the legislative
session. Time and again, I have been
asked, "How do you feel about the
budget?" It is important as we look at
the state budget, that it is viewed in
the context of our economy, so I
would like to share with you some
information regarding our economy.
This year only two states expect
revenue collections to come in above
budgeted forecasts (Wyoming and
North Dakota), while 38 states
expect revenue shortfalls. This past
fiscal year alone, 42 states (including
Florida) were forced to reduce enact-
ed budgets by over $31 billion. Com-
pare this to 2002 and 2003, when 37
states were forced to make mid-year
budget reductions totaling $14 billion
and $12 billion respectively.
Florida's growth is now decelerat-
ing. Our;tWLe gpos.domestic prod-
ui.,t now canki. 4th in the country,
down from 2'-'05 when it ranked sec-
ond. Florida's economy, and its tax
revenue structure, is built on
growth. Its reliance on these growth
industries is the reason Florida has
been hit so hard by the downturn in
real estate.
In normal years there are
approximately 50,000 homes for sale
around the state at any one time.
Today economists indicate there are
an additional 300,000 homes for sale.
This overhang, coupled with the
decelerating growth in the state,
means it will take many, many
months before this inventory can be
cleared and real economic growth
begins.
Since January of 2008, Florida's
unemployment rate has been consis-

growth over a relatively short period
of time. Our state's reliance on
growth to fuel our economy has left

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Time toresign
The July 1 edition of your paper
slapped me in the face with a headline
raising the question for the reasons
behind the noise ordinance that we
are now having thrust down our
throats ("Did noise law effort begin
with Sunshine Law error").
The article explains why Mr.
(Commissioner Eric) CHilders would
just repeat that we need a.noise ordi-
nance and offer no plausible or ration-
al explanation. It explains why (Florida
House Inn proprietor) Joe Warwick
would walk around town with the look
of the cat that just ate the canary. Our
former city commission violated the
law and cut a deal behind closed doors
to conceal from the public they pur-
ported to represent.
The three remaining members of
the commission, Ms. (Mayor Susan)
Steger and Messrs. Childers and
(Commissioner Ken) Walker should
do the honorable thing and withdraw
from the commission immediately.
They have violated the public trust!
They allowed (City Attorney) Tammi
Bach, (City Manager) Michael
Czymbor and some other city official
to go to mediation, enter into negoti-
ations and agree not to disclose the
conversations or topics of the closed-
door session that led up to the medi-
ated settlement that abandoned years
of Historic District rules and regula-
tions, thousands of dollars of fines for
violations of those rules and regula-
tions and a commitment to ram some
manner of noise ordinance down the
throats of a community none of them
have lived in for more than a few short
years.
Then, that commission went on
record and approved the settlement
5-0 to seal the deal preventing their
exposure for having violated the laws
of our state designed to keep these
very things from happening.
They did so fully aware that their


activities were protected from public
scrutiny by the vote they cast. The
five commissioners and the city offi-
cials took strides to cover these viola-
tions of the law by use of their votes
and positions as officials of our gov-
ernment. Shame on each of them!
Some would call their actions a con-
spiracy. Others, a crime. Some, just
simple stupidity.
Whatever label it is given should
not be tolerated by either the citizens,
the State Attorney's Office, the
Attorney General's Office or the
Florida Bar. The idea that these people
are entrusted with the operation of
our government is sickening to me
and several that I have spoken with
since reading the article.
What has come of our community?
Is this the new, neighborly way of
doing business in Fernandina? I hope
not!
Susan Steger and Ken Walker I
have known for years as friends. Eric
Childers I know nothing about.
However, friendship does not take
precedence over doing the right thing
at the right time for the right reason.
Susan, Ken and Eric, you need to
resign! It is the right thing to do, now
is the right time, and you each know
the reason.

Racquets high
Once again City Hall is chipping
away at the character and personality
of Fernandina Beach. First Felix, now
tennis pro Lanny Kalpin!
Over four years ago Lanny found
Fernandina in need of a tennis pro-
gram and built comprehensive instruc-
tional clinics for all ages. He was the
first in this position, and quality tennis
on Amelia is now available outside of
the private clubs. Lanny produces rev-
enue where once there was little. He


and his familiar pith helmet are seen
from dawn to dark on the city courts,
all year 'round.
This is no country-club job with an
air-conditioned pro shop, as Lanny
,operates out of his car. Lanny's tech-
nical instruction is enhanced by his
talent to motivate, his humor, his abil-
ity to keep things fresh and even his
on-court singing.
Lanny has a large and loyal follow-
ing of beginners to advanced players
who are organizing in his defense as,
for the first time, his position is "up for
bids."
A request for proposal may be
found on the city web site. I know not
the motivation behind this search, but
it seems to be an attempt to fix some-
thing that doesn't need fixing. It also
appears that this specific position has
been singled out without precedence.
For those that wish to protest with us,
contact betsywidnes@hotmail.com or
call me at 261-6660.
Mr." (City Manager Michael)
Czymbor, surely you have more press-
ing things to do than to oust a beloved
friend of your city. Expect to see us
marching to City Hall with our rac-
quets held high.

Jo Heller
Transition Home
There were several important facts
missing in the June 19 News-Leader
article on the Florida Department of
Children and Families' contract with
the Jo Heller Transition Home. We'd
like to take this opportunity to
clarify important information regard-
ing beds for the mentally ill in Nassau
County.
The department values our rela-
tionships and the services of the Jo
Heller Transition Home. We have
agreed to a new contract with this facil-
ity at the same funding level as the


previous year. However, the beds at
the home have not been utilized at an
acceptable rate, so we have asked the
home's management to make irprove-
ments in that area. We have given
them one year to make the improve-
ments. The department is not in'favor'
of reducing services, but of course,
we will support contracts that produce.
strong results. We are accountable to
the taxpayers of Nassau County and
our state.
Our contract pays for five beds at
this home. However, during the most
recent fiscal year, surveys showed that
on average only 2.8 beds at the Jo
Heller home were being used. Since
the number of Baker Act patients in
Nassau County increased by 114 per-
cent over the past year, this lack of
bed usage is not acceptable and must
change.
As part of our new contract with the
provider, they were required to devel-
op an "action plan" that calls on the
home to increase its marketing and
community awareness of the beds
available at the facility. We are requir-
ing the home's operator to reach out
to law enforcement, mental health
providers and other community
providers. Our goal is for the home to
increase its average daily bed usage to
80 percent capacity or better.
The Department of Children and
Families believes that the mentally ill.

ensure that this is the case in Nassau

Cap and trade
If cap and trade is passed in the
Congress, jobs are going to be lost
because of the hike in fuel and electric
cost for us, while places like Mexico,


China, or India will take the lead in
manufacturing. No one is really fol-
lowing this.
The federal Environmental
Protection Agency was told to squash
a EPA report showing that carbon
dioxide is actually lower than the 20th
century. It was someone on Obama's
staff who stated that the report could
hurt the chance of the cap and trade
bill from passing. Why? People like
Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore and some oth-
ers in Congress have millions to gain,
because they have bought stock in
these green stocks.
Fox News reported on the report
on the Monday following the House of
Representatives' vote on the bill. Nine
Florida Democrats voted for cap and
trade, one Florida Democrat did not
vote, 16 Florida Republicans voted
against it. So who is looking out for
whom in Florida? Do you want higher
gas prices, higher electric bills, loss of
jobs? Then go ahead, tell you senator
to vote for cap and trade. If you don't,
tell them that.
But you should know all the facts.
I don't know all the facts. I would like
to. The morning of the vote in the
House of Representatives, 300 more
pages were added, but no one reads
the damn thing. So what are they sign-
ing into law when no one reads it?
Makes me wonder. Washington
already has to much power. I don't
know about you, but I think
Washington has spent too much
money and taken too much from us
already.
When we start paying higher taxes
for his health care, where will the
promise not to raise taxes be? I don't
want his type of health care. I have
been to England, Europe. I have seen
the results. Japan has a health care
program but they pay dearly for it. Be
careful what you wish for, you just
might get it.

'(Abandoned cabanas) are an eyesore
on our beautiful beaches, and they
seem to attract trash and interfere
with sea-turtle nesting.'
MAYOR SUSAN STEGER




Beach cabanas



daytime only


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Beach cabanas are a practical and
popular accessory that many people
use to enhance their beachgoing expe-
rience. But the city of Fernandina
Beach wants to remind both locals and
visitors that cabanas and other per-
sonal items are not allowed on the
beach overnight, and may eventually
be considered abandoned property.
According to City Attorney Tammi
Bach, complaints about abandoned
cabanas began to come in to City Hall
last summer, mostly from early-morn-
ing joggers and people walking their
dogs on the beach.
Bach said the deserted cabanas can
be an obstruction for sea turtles going
to and from the ocean to lay their eggs.
Cabanas and beach umbrellas can also
become dangerous during high winds,
which can pull them out of the sand
and turn them into projectiles.
Abandoned beach equipment also is
not aesthetically pleasing to many peo-
ple who visit Fernandina's beaches to


enjoy the unspoiled beauty..
Bach said that although law
enforcement officers are the only ones
allowed to remove abandoned prop-
erty, code enforcement officers have
been tagging the vacant cabanas to
remind people they must be removed
within 24 hours.
. In a few cases, code enforcement
has moved vacant cabanas back to the
property line. City staff also has spoken
to rental managers to remind them to
advise guests on the matter.
Bach said the city is making about
15 signs to inform beachgoers about
municipal rules on personal items.
According to Community
Development Director Marshall
McCrary, those signs are being put
up this week in the most popular beach
areas, as well as some more "prob-
lematic" areas around big condomini-
um communities.
"Our efforts are primarily focused
on educating and advising beachgo-
ers that they need to remove their

V YOU SAID IT/JASONYURGARTIS/NEWS-LEADER


What did Michael Jackson mean to you?


"I like Michael Jackson, I really do. His music was really good. I'm care-
ful about endorsing people, but he had a lot of talent and was handsome as
a young man. It's a great loss."
Jeanette Richo, Fernandina Beach


"I remember listening to him
when I was young with my older.
sisters. We used to dress up like
him in leather jackets and gloves
and sing and dance. His music is
timeless."
Lori Davis, Jacksonville


"I followed him a lot and I'm
thinking about his music and the
legacy he leaves for up and coming
artists and his showmanship and
fanfare. I have a lot of good memo-
ries."
Sebrina Henry, O'Neil


"The only thing I know is there are a lot of jokes about him. I have
about 15 of them, but Thriller' was a great album."
Ryan Morgan, Fernandina Beach


"I lived in Philadelphia, and I
remember seeing him as a kid on
Soul Train. He's going to be
missed. Despite his personal life,
you can't take away his musical tal-
ent. The music will live on."
Chris Allen, Fernandina Beach


"I'm more shocked at (TV pitch-
man) Billy Mays' death. I can relate
more because he's a family man. -
I'm more depressed about him than
Michael Jackson."

University of Florida
GAINESVILLE - Recent weeks of
heavy rain have left conditions
statewide ripe for a Fourth of July rife
with mosquitoes. For some North
Florida areas, however, the pests are
more than a holiday annoyance - they
bring the threat of the eastern equine
encephalitis virus, known as EEEV.
"This year doesfi't look like it's
going to be tremendously unusual in
terms of overall cases of mosquito-
borne diseases," said Jonathan Day, a
professor of medical entomology with
the University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences. "But
transmission of (EEEV) tends to be
very focal, and there are some areas
that are looking risky."
EEEV is best known for being
deadly in horses, but humans can con-
tract the virus as well.
According to the national Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention,
the virus can cause a severe infection
of the central nervous system in
humans, and is fatal for nearly a third
of those afflicted.
So far this year, 26 horses have
been found to be infected in North
Florida, with five more in the state's
Panhandle.
These cases, along with analysis
of weather conditions and other indi-
cators, have led UF entomologists to
believe that a band of counties begin-
ning at Volusia County and stretching
northwest into the Florida Panhandle
carry a moderate to high risk of mos-
quitoes carrying the virus.
"July is usually the peak for EEEV
transmission," said Roxanne Connelly,
an IFAS professor of medical ento-
mology. "We've had the type of weath-

Preparation key in-cardiac emergencies


50 YEAR1

Florida became
state to have a bo
tion act officially
by the U.S. Coast
Washington, D.C


25 YEARS

The Northeas
Regional Plannin


The American Heart Association
urges the public to be prepared for car-
diac emergencies:
* Know the warning signs of cardiac
arrest. During cardiac arrest a victim
loses consciousness, stops normal
breathing and loses pulse and blood pres-
sure. They may suddenly collapse.
* Call 9-1-1 immediately to access the
emergency medical system if you see any
cardiac arrest warning signs.
* Give cardiopulmonary resuscitation
(CPR) to help keep the cardiac arrest vic-
tim alive until emergency help arrives.
* If you don't know CPR or haven't
been trained, call 9-1-1 and push hard and
fast on the center of the chest until help
arrives.
Q: What is cardiac arrest?
A: Cardiac arrest is the sudden,
abrupt loss of heart function. It's not the
same as a heart attack. Sudden cardiac
arrest occurs when electrical impulses in
the heart become rapid or chaotic, which
causes the heart to suddenly stop beat-
ing. A heart attack occurs when the
blood supply to part of the heart muscle


is blocked. A heart attack may cause car-
diac arrest.
Sudden death (also called sudden car-
diac death) occurs within minutes after
symptoms appear.
Q: What causes cardiac arrest?
A: The most common reason for
patients to die suddenly from cardiac
arrest is heart disease. Other factors
besides heart disease and heart attack
can cause cardiac arrest. They include
respiratory arrest, electrocution,
drowning, choking and trauma. Cardiac
arrest can also occur without any
known cause.
Q: Can cardiac arrest be reversed?
A. Brain death and permanent death
start to occur in just 4 to 6 minutes after
cardiac arrest. '
Cardiac arrest can be reversed if it's
treated within a few minutes with an elec-
tric shock to the heart to restore a nor-
mal heartbeat. This process is called
defibrillation.
A victim's chances of survival are
reduced by 7 to 10 percent with every
minute that passes without CPR and

Annie "Belle" Lawrence of
Fernandina Beach and Forest

24 at the age 84, soaring into
heaven proud of her many life-
time accomplishments.
Born: Lakewood, Ga. to
Elizabeth E Price (James Burt

Caroline S. and Rudolph Fast.
She learned life's lessons and
worked as an
apprentice
machinist on
the family farm
under the
watchful eye of
her machinist
grandfather, an
imnunigrant fr-om Austria. In 1942
Belle graduated from the
Sacred Heart High School in
Atlanta, Ga. Belle took
Engineering Drawing courses
at Georgia School of
Technology (Ga. Tech), and
worked in the Engineering
Department at Southern Bell
thereafter.
Before she earned a driver's
license, she earned her pilot's
wings. Becoming bored with
her office job Belle left Atlanta
as a teenager to find her place in
aviation; she lived her dream of
working on and flying airplanes,
flying with many contemporary
female pilots in Amelia
Earhart's '99's. Belle ferried air-
planes around the US during
the 1940's additionally earning
a Parachute-rigger's license &
aviation mechanic's license.
During the 40's and 50's she
rebuilt the fabric covered wings
and engines of many airplanes.
She moved to Deland, FLto
run her business rebuilding air-
planes, running the Airport
Fixed base Airport Operation

plane was her two metal-winged
ErCoupe's - one of which she
flew to air shows in Florida with
the 99's. She served in the Civil
Air Patrol at Atlanta Airport as
a paid employee of that auxil-
iary of the Air Force. Later, she
was a ticket agent for Delta Air
Lines, where she met and mar-
ried B.L. Lawrence. Pausing in
her flying quest, she raised two
sons; as that challenge was met,
she returned to the skies, again
flying and working at the Fulton
County Airport. Belle earned
an Associate Degree in Library
Science from Clayton State
Junior. College in 1977, and
worked with the Clayton
County Public Library.
An Associate member of


Fairview Presbyterian Church,
Belle worked with many civic
organizations such as Peck
Library, and Sierra Club the 19
years as a part time Fernandina
Beach residence. Travel
remained in her blood as she
toured Europe many times with
friends and family, especially to
her ancestral Austria. She
served in the Civil Air Patrol
for over 25 years, retiring as
Captain in 2000 from the
Fernandina Beach Squadron.
Belle is survived by son
Walter Eric (Allison) Lawrence,
granddaughter Charlee S.
Lawrence of Fernandina Beach;
Son Eliot Lawrence, grandsons
Jason C. Wetzstein (Dinah) and

defibrillation. Few attempts at resuscita-
tion succeed after 10 minutes.
Q: How many people survive cardiac
arrest?
A: Each year, EMS treats nearly
300,000 people who suffer cardiac arrest
outside the hospital. More than 92 per-
cent of cardiac arrest victims don't sur-
vive to be discharged from the hospital.
In cities where defibrillation is provided
within 5 to 7 minutes, the survival rate is
as high as 30-45 percent.
Q: What can be done to increase the
survival rate?
A: Early CPR and rapid defibrillation
combined with early advanced care can
result in high long-term survival rates for
witnessed cardiac arrest.
If bystander CPR was initiated
more consistently, if AEDs were more
widely available and if every commu-
nity could achieve a 20 percent cardiac
arrest survival rate, an estimated
40,000 more lives could be saved each
year.

current revenue sources used
to maintain the state's valu-
able natural and cultural

the state park system is raised
from entrance and usage
fees. Some of the most com-
mon fees that will change
include:
* Day-use entrance fee for
vehicles with up to eight
people: average increase of
$1-$3.
* Camping fees: average
increase of $4 per night.

sure to read and follow the
directions.
Pets are best kept inside

The disease is spread via
mosquitoes that have fed on
birds. Humans and horses can-
not spread the virus to other
humans and horses.
Connelly advises that peo-
ple in risk areas avoid being
outside during peak feeding
times for mosquitoes that carry
the disease - calm, humid peri-
ods from dusk to dawn.
If you are outside during
these times, you should cover
as much skin as possible. Bare
skin should be treated with a
repellent that carries DEET or
Picaridin.
"There are all sorts of traps
and tools out there like bug
lights and citronella candles,"
Connelly said. "None of them
keeps mosquitoes from biting
you - only a repellent applied
directly on your body can do
that."
Pet birds should be kept
inside and, while it is very rare
for dogs and cats to contract
EEEV, Connelly suggests being
aware that pets aren't immune
to pesky mosquito bites.

Take precautions
Florida health officials urge residents and visitors to prac-
tice the "5 D's":
* Dusk and Dawn - Avoid being outdoors during mosqui-
to feeding times.
* Dress - Make sure to wear clothing that covers most of
your skin.
* DEET- Use repellents that contain up to 30 percent of the
chemical compound commonly known as DEET. Other repel-
lents may contain other chemicals or natural oils, but typical-
ly don't last as long.
* Drainage - Check around your property and eliminate
areas of standing water, which is where mosquitoes lay eggs.
Remove water in old tires, buckets, garbage cans, and other con-

FRIDAY, July 3, 2009 NEWS News-Leader


Happy Birthday America!


July 4 is known as the
birthday of our- nation
and this year we'll cele-
brate its 233rd anniver-
sary when we pay trib-
ute to the day on which
dreams of a new nation
became reality.
Independence Day reigns
the most popular of national
holidays. Americans celebrate
its past historical importance
with the lavishness of present
day grandeur. During parades
visitors will stand tall with
hand over heart and once
again declare true patriotism
to our nation's icon, the
American flag, as it leads our
communities in thousands of
parades across the nation.
Throughout the day we'll get
to experience the culinary
arts supplied by the people of
our melting pot nation and
quite possibly experience the
infamous all-American pas-
time, a baseball game. Then
at day's end, the grand finale
of all, an explosive opulence
of fireworks will renew with
patriotic fervor what it truly
means to be a citizen of
world's greatest nation.
This federal holiday com-
memorates the adoption of '
the Declaration of
Independence, a document
which emphatically avowed a
new freedom from the tyran-
ny of British rule. Its ratifica-
tion by representatives of the
13 colonies on July 4, 1776,
declared independence from
the Kingdom of Great Britain.
It was a day that outspokenly
stated - a new democracy was
born.
In the middle of the 18th
century, differences in
lifestyles and economic inter-
ests formed between those
living in the colonies and the
distant control mongers of
England. The British govern-
ment tried to regulate colonial
commerce and in 1765 when
the British Parliament imple-
mented the fourth Stamp Act
it was no wonder violent colo-
nial outcries were heard
across the seas of the
Atlantic. They considered
these acts a degradation of
their rights, which condoned
taxation without representa-
tion. The Townshend Acts of
1767, which led to further
assert imperial authority over,
the colonies. resulted in

VETERAN'S
CORNER

Debbie
Walsh


Party.
Several
years
thereafter,
the
Continental
Congress
created a
committee
of five
members
to draft a
statement
of inde-
pendence.
Those
members


included Benjamin Franldin,
John Adams, Thomas
Jefferson, Roger Sherman
and Robert R. Livingston.
The original Declaration of
Independence, which now
resides in the Exhibition Hall
of the National Archive in
Washington, D.C., serves as
one of America's most treas-
ured symbols. It identifies the
moment our nation was born
and very openly depicts justi-
fication for its birth. The doc-
ument explicitly reports the
need of the 13 colonies to
detach themselves from
England and vividly details a
complete list of dissatisfac-
tions which led our forefa-
thers to finally demand inde-
pendence.
Many will recognize these
motivating words which are
part of the Declaration of
Independence and eloquently
hand-scribed by Thomas
Jefferson: "... We hold these
Truths to be self-evident, that
all Men are created equal,
that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain
unalienable Rights, that
among these are Life, Liberty, '
and the pursuit of
Happiness..."
Since that day in 1776
those born in America and
thousands others who left
their native countries immi-
grating to the "land of the free
and the home of the brave"
have continued to seek the
American dream. That vision
still includes freedom from
oppression, taxation without
representation along with the
rights to free speech and to
assemble without fear of
reprisal.
Both John Adams and
Thomas Jefferson, two found-
ing fathers of An erica and the
only two men who signed the
declarationn of Independence
to go on to become president
of the United States, died on


the same day, July 4, 1826.
Both patriots passed away at
home of unrelated circum-
stances, ironically on the 50th
anniversary of the signing of
the Declaration of
Independence. Is it symbolic?
Many believe it is.
"Old Glory," adopted in
1777 as the official flag of the
United States, is one of
many patriotic symbols our
illustrious nation has adopted
* since the signing the
Declaration of Independence.
This worldly recognized rep-
resentation of the American
people receives its own spe-
cial recognition each year on
Flag Day, June 14.
When Americans sought a
symbol of unity, the Liberty
Bell was chosen to fulfill that
requirement. It rang constant-
ly throughout colonial history
calling for the people of our
nation to "Come Hear Yea."
That's why on each July 4 at 2
p.m.-(EST) children who are
descendants of Declaration
signers symbolically tap the
Liberty Bell 13 times while
bells across the nation also
ring 13 times in honor of the
patriots from the original 13
states.
The American bald eEagle
is our nation's national
emblem. President John E
Kennedy wrote, "The
Founding Fathers made an
appropriate choice when they
selected the bald eagle as the
emblem of the nation. The
fierce beauty and proud inde-
pendence of this great bird
aptly symbolizes the strength
and freedom of America...." It
is the most pictured bird in
America, for it graces the
backside of billions of one-dol-
lar bills.
"I do solemnly swear that I
will support and defend the
Constitution of the United
States against all enemies, for-
eign and domestic; that I will
bear true faith and allegiance
to the same...." is something
everyone entering military
service and public office will
affirm. Our Constitution,

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/EDGAR E. ROBERTs/AMERICAN LEGION PosT 174


American Legion Post 174 back to serve community


American Legion Post 174
was initially formed in Fernan-
dina Beach back in 1946. Post
Commander at that time was
the late Mr. Richard A.
Coakley. The post was created
to serve the desire of African-
American veterans to promote
American ideals, and to serve
their community. The post
remained active until its char-
ter was canceled in November
1999. That is, until now!
Post 174 is happy to report
that it has again received its
American Legion Permanent
Charter, and is again serving
the community. Consistent
with our changing demo-
graphic, and our efforts to fos-
ter diversity, the post is open
to, and aggressively recruiting
all honorably discharged area
veterans who have served

during a peri-
od of war, or
conflict.
Our mis-
sion is codi-
fied in our pre-
amble to the
constitution of
The American
Legion:
* To


uphold and defend the
Constitution of the United
States of America;
* To maintain law and
order;
* To foster and perpetuate
a 100 percent Americanism
* To preserve the memo-
ries and incidents of our asso-
ciations in the great wars;
* To inculcate a sense of
individual obligation to the
community, state and nation;


* To combat the autocracy
of both the classes and the
masses;
* To make right the mas-
ter of might;
* To promote peace and
goodwill on earth;
* To safeguard and trans-
mit to posterity the principles
of justice, freedom and
democracy;
* To consecrate and sancti-
fy our comradeship by our
devotion to mutual helpful-
ness.
As a result of a long period
of non-use, the post's physical
location at 200 South 12th St.
has fallen into serious disre-
pair requiring extensive
rebuilding. The post is tem-
porarily being housed at the
Peck Center in Fernandina.
According to Commander


'The post is actively conducting fundraising
activities while at the same time beginning
our community service efforts.'

seeking the goodwill and trust
of the community we serve."
In keeping with Post 174's
desire to serve the communi-
ty, the post is sponsoring a

I was driving to work this morning when I
heard one of my favorite commentators
waxing eloquently about one of his biggest '
pet peeves - people who tie up the left lane
on the highway. He had some pithy descrip-
tions of drivers who clog up the left lane like ,

with a challenge to anyone who might be lis- h'

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Time to resign
The July 1 edition of your paper
slapped me in the face with a headline
raising the question for the reasons
behind the noise ordinance that we
are now having thrust down our
throats ("Did noise law effort begin
with Sunshine Law error").
The article explains why Mr.
(Commissioner Eric) CHilders would
just repeat that we need a.noise ordi-
nance and offer no plausible or ration-
al explanation. It explains why (Florida
House Inn proprietor) Joe Warwick
would walk around town with the look
of the cat that just ate the canary. Our
former city commission violated the
law and cut a deal behind closed doors
to conceal from the public they pur-
ported to represent.
The three remaining members of
the commission, Ms. (Mayor Susan)
Steger and Messrs. Childers and
(Commissioner Ken) Walker should
do the honorable thing and withdraw
from the commission immediately.
They have violated the public trust!
They allowed (City Attorney) Tammi
Bach, (City Manager) Michael
Czymbor and some other city official
to go to mediation, enter into negoti-
ations and agree not to disclose the
conversations or topics of the closed-
door session that led up to the medi-
ated settlement that abandoned years
of Historic District rules and regula-
tions, thousands of dollars of fines for
violations of those rules and regula-
tions and a commitment to ram some
manner of noise ordinance down the
throats of a community none of them
have lived in for more than a few short
years.
Then, that commission went on
record and approved the settlement
5-0 to seal the deal preventing their
exposure for having violated the laws
of our state designed to keep these
very things from happening.
They did so fully aware that their


activities were protected from public
scrutiny by the vote they cast. The
five commissioners and the city offi-
cials took strides to cover these viola-
tions of the law by use of their votes
and positions as officials of our gov-
ernment. Shame on each of them!
Some would call their actions a con-
spiracy. Others, a crime. Some, just
simple stupidity.
Whatever label it is given should
not be tolerated by either the citizens,
the State Attorney's Office, the
Attorney General's Office or the
Florida Bar. The idea that these people
are entrusted with the operation of
our government is sickening to me
and several that I have spoken with
since reading the article.
What has come of our community?
Is this the new, neighborly way of
doing business in Fernandina? I hope
not!
Susan Steger and Ken Walker I
have known for years as friends. Eric
Childers I know nothing about.
However, friendship does not take
precedence over doing the right thing
at the right time for the right reason.
Susan, Ken and Eric, you need to
resign! It is the right thing to do, now
is the right time, and you each know
the reason.
John J. Cascone
Attorney at Law
Fernandina Beach

Racquets high
Once again City Hall is chipping
away at the character and personality
of Fernandina Beach. First Felix, now
tennis pro Lanny Kalpin!
Over four years ago Lanny found
Fernandina in need of a tennis pro-
gram and built comprehensive instruc-
tional clinics for all ages. He was the
first in this position, and quality tennis
on Amelia is now available outside of
the private clubs. Lanny produces rev-
enue where once there was little. He


and his familiar pith helmet are seen
from dawn to dark on the city courts,
all year 'round.
This is no country-club job with an
air-conditioned pro shop, as Lanny
operates out of his car. Lanny's tech-
nical instruction is enhanced by his
talent to motivate, his humor, his abil-
ity to keep things fresh and even his
on-court singing.
Lanny has a large and loyal follow-
ing of beginners to advanced players
who are organizing in his defense as,
for the first time, his position is "up for
bids."
A request for proposal may be
found on the city web site. I know not
the motivation behind this search, but
it seems to be an attempt to fix some-
thing that doesn't need fixing. It also
appears that this specific position has
been singled out without precedence.
For those that wish to protest with us,
contact betsywidnes@hotmail.com or
call me at 261-6660.
Mr.. (City Manager Michael)
Czymbor, surely you have more press-
ing things to do than to oust a beloved
friend of your city. Expect to see us
marching to City Hall with our rac-
quets held high.
Betsy Widnes
Fernandina Beach

Jo Heller
Transition Home
There were several important facts
missing in the June 19 News-Leader
article on the Florida Department of
Children and Families' contract with
the Jo Heller Transition Home. We'd
like to take this opportunity to
clarify important information regard-
ing beds for the mentally ill in Nassau
County.
The department values our rela-
tionships and the services of the Jo
Heller Transition Home. We have
agreed to a new contract with this facil-
ity at the same funding level as the


previous year. However, the beds at
the home have not been utilized at an
acceptable rate, so we have asked the
home's management to make irmprove-
ments in that area. We have given
them one year to make the improve-
ments. The department is not in'favor
of reducing services, but of course,
we will support contracts that produce
strong results. We are accountable to
the taxpayers of Nassau County and
our state.
Our contract pays for five beds at
this home. However, during the most
recent fiscal year, surveys showed that
on average only 2.8 beds at the Jo
Heller home were being used. Since
the number of Baker Act patients in
Nassau County increased by 114 per-
cent over the past year, this lack of
bed usage is not acceptable and must
change.
As part of our new contract with the
provider, they were required to devel-
op an "action plan" that calls on the
home to increase its marketing and
community awareness of the beds
available at the facility. We are requir-
ing the home's operator to reach out
to law enforcement, mental health
providers and other community
providers. Our goal is for the home to
increase its average daily bed usage to
80 percent capacity or better.
The Department of Children and
Families believes that the mentally ill,
deserve quality care. We will work to
ensure that this is the case in Nassau
County.
Nancy Dreicer, Northeast
Region Director
Florida Department of
Children and Families


Cap and trade
If cap and trade is passed in the
Congress, jobs are going to be lost
because of the hike in fuel and electric
cost for us, while places like Mexico,


China. or India will take the lead in
manufacturing. No one is really fol-
lowing this.
The federal Environmental
Protection Agency was told to squash
a EPA report showing that carbon
dioxide is actually lower than the 20th
century. It was someone on Obama's
staff who stated that the report could
hurt the chance of the cap and trade
bill from passing. Why? People like
Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore and some oth-
ers in Congress have millions to gain,
because they have bought stock in
these green stocks.
Fox News reported on the report
on the Monday following the House of
Representatives' vote on the bill. Nine
Florida Democrats voted for cap and
trade, one Florida Democrat did not
vote, 16 Florida Republicans voted
against it. So who is looking out for
whom in Florida? Do you want higher
gas prices, higher electric bills, loss of
jobs? Then go ahead, tell you senator
to vote for cap and trade. If you don't,
tell them that.
But you should know all the facts.
I don't know all the facts. I would like
to. The morning of the vote in the
House of Representatives, 300 more
pages were added, but no one reads
the damn thing. So what are they sign-
ing into law when no one reads it?
Makes me wonder. Washington
already has to much power. I don't
know about you, but I think
Washington has spent too much
money and taken too much from us
already.
When we start paying higher taxes
for his health care, where will the
promise not to raise taxes be? I don't
want his type of health care. I have
been to England, Europe. I have seen
the results. Japan has a health care
program but they pay dearly for it. Be
careful what you wish for, you just
might get it.
J.L Brown Jr.

blinkety-blinkety. Translation: Idiot-idiot-idiot.
I counted a half dozen of Idiot flashellus
floridiia on a two-mile stretch of A1A.
They call those things emergency flashers for
a reason. That list of Thou Shalts and Thou
Shalt Nots also known as Florida Statutes
says very clearly that thou shalt not drive with
thy emergency flashers on. There's a very
good reason for this, gentle idiots. Normal
drivers coming up behind you see flashing
emergency lights and think, "Oh #@%! Stalled
car just ahead," and then take evasive action,
which on dry pavement might not even merit
the squeal of rubber on asphalt but which on
pavement submerged in rain, snow or ice -
thank God we don't worry much about that
here - can result in a nasty accident. Of
course, the flashing idiot will just glance in his
rearview mirror and congratulate himself:
"Whew! Sure glad I've got my flashers on
where everyone can see me!"
Most of them have their faces pressed
against the windshield and a death grip on the
wheel, motoring along scared to death, think-
ing that they're engaging in safe driving
behavior and not realizing that those blinking
lights are a flashing billboard to their stupidity.
Scared of the rain? Here's a.clue. Park it.
I hope all the doofuses - or is the plural
doofii? - driving along in the rain with only
their parking lights on read this. And also the
idiots who drive with their emergency flashers
activated.
Get off the road, ya morons.

Cedar Bay has a full-time minister


Mark 1:22: "He taught them as one
who had authority." Our purpose: glorify
God, Romans 16:6; our vision: Christ-
likeness, Matthew 22:37-39; our mission:
make disciples, Matthew 28:18-20. First
Baptist Church of Gray Gables.
Family Mission Trip is July 13-17.
This mission trip will allow families to
serve together. You will be doing
Vacation Bible School and servant proj-
ects. Youth Camp was June 22-26.
Cedar Bay Baptist Church is happy
to announce that Bro. Bill Tyler has
been called to full-time ministry at the
church. He has served well in bi-voca-
tional ministry for the past 16 years.
God is at work at CBBC and He has now
opened the door for full-time ministry.
The church is excited to see what God
has planned for Cedar Bay.
As you can appreciate, we at
Springhill Baptist Church don't want to
rush out and just grab any man for our
new pastor. We want the man God has
specifically prepared for thigh next phase
in the life of Springhill. We also want to
emphasize right up front that no one is
being considered at present. The elders
have been working on formulating a
process to put in place as we begin the
search for whom God has called to
become our next pastor.
We will keep you informed as the
church walks through this process. We
have been blessed to have such a man of
God as Pastor Jackie Hayes and his fam-
ily. They have been such an integral part
of our family for so many years. We
need to be in prayer as to whom God is
preparing to lead us next. As your eld-
ers, we ask for your assistance as we

journey together in our
search.
John Ketchum will
serve as our
spokesman/chairman
of the committee and
as such will be the only
person to whom you
should address ques-
tions during this
process. This is to
ensure that the infor-
mation we are passing
on to you is consistent
in its content and inter-
pretation. We will begin
collecting resumes for
the next 2-3 months


before starting any review. Bill
Sullenger will be the collector of these.
Above all, please continue to lift up
Springhill and God's will for us in your
prayers.
Dear Springhill family, I would like to
take this opportunity to share with you
an exciting adventure that God will soon
take me on. I am ecstatic to inform you
that the Lord has called me to
Nicaragua. I have always thought that I
would enjoy doing missions and see the
awesome work that God is doing in our
world. The last few years I have really
felt that I have been living life day by
day and it has not had much substance-
until now. He is providing an opportuni-
ty for me to go and share the word of
God through foreign missions. This
July, I will be heading to the community
of Los Castros, Nicaragua, to build
homes for 28 families in need. In addi-
tion to building homes, we will also be


providing household items for them to
use. I leave July 18 and will be there
until July 26. I1 thank God for the oppor-
tunity that is set before me and trust He
will meet my needs. I would be honored
if you would be a prayer partner with me
in this ministry. If you feel led to support
me financially, that would be fabulous;
however, prayer support is my primary
request. The cost of this mission trip is
$1,365. This amount covers my expens-
es from airfare to food. All funds are
being collected through the mission
agency, Project Hope. Checks need to
be made payable to Project Hope and
then sent to me so I can mail the checks
to my sponsors.
I am so elated because not only am I
able to go, but some members of my
family are going as well. I am so thank-
. ful that I will be able to share this won-
derful experience with my family to see
the work that God is doing in each of
our lives. I can't wait to see how God will
use us and what He will teach us
through this trip. I hope not only to be a
blessing to those we serve, but also to
you. My desire is to go as your repre-
sentative of Jesus Christ. I hope you will
prayerfully consider being part of this
ministry. Thank you so much! Angela
Higgins.
My 35th year of penning this
"Hearabouts" is coming up this July. I
still love doing it and pick up my legal
pad every day. This keeps me from
burning the midnight oil. Thanks for the
nice comments I receive. Your news is
appreciated.
"May our Great Heavenly Father con-
tinue to keep us in His loving care."

FRIDAY, July 3.2009/News-Leader


RELIGION


Justice, consequences and a brand-new start


As a kid, I stole something
from a store. Not a great
thing for a pastor to admit,
I know, but it's the truth.
I'm not sure what got into me that
day, but it wasn't good.
What's interesting is that my par-
ents have very high standards of
integrity and had taught all five of us
Goyette children well. Either way,
somehow on that day I caved in to a
temptation that must have come
right from the pit of hell. And to
think, I was willing to risk it all for a
silly fishing lure.
Well, as the story goes, and as
God would have it, they caught me. I
was terrified. As soon as I walked
out the front door a man grabbed
my arm and told me to come with
him. Though I'm not even sure if I
was a teenager yet, the thought of


prison flooded my
mind. What would I
tell mom and dad?
Oh, God bless my
mom and dad.
After being
escorted upstairs to
a secret room that
overlooked the
entire store, empty-
PL Ir ing my pocket of
NOTES the lone fishing
lure and pleading
for mercy, they
Pastor called my parents.
Rob Goyette Shocked, embar-
rassed and, I'm
sure, very disappointed in me, they
guaranteed the store that I would do
whatever I needed to make things
right. Thankfully, my parents meant
what they said. In the windup, I did-


n't have to go to jail but served my
time in other ways.
Now that brings me to the topic
of this article: Justice. You know the
act of putting things right by hand-
ing out appropriate consequences.
Just like slapping someone's hand
for committing murder would not be
just; neither would life in prison be
fitting for a kid taking a fishing lure.
Why? The answer is simple. In order
for justice to occur, the punishment
for a crime must be equal to the
crime. Justice demands a just conse-
quence - nothing more, nothing
less.
When I consider the cross of
Jesus Christ and this principle of jus-
tice, it all becomes so clear. God, by
nature, is absolutely just. In the
same way our country's justice sys-
tem strives to right wrongs, so God's


very nature demands justice.
Thankfully for us, God is not only
just but merciful. That's what Jesus
Christ dying on the cross is all
about. If justice could have been sat-
isfied some other way, God would
have never sent His only begotten
Son to die on our behalf.
The short of it is this. According
to the Bible, we all have sinned and
broken God's laws. "There is no one
righteous, no not one."(Romans
3:10) That said, just like the security
guard who watched me from the
secret room upstairs, God knows
every one of our thoughts, words
and deeds.
Sure, you might try to escape
this life undetected but let me
assure you, justice is waiting just
outside the door and demands an
answer from us all. To me that's


what makes the Good News of Jesus
Christ so good.
Let me say it like this. None of us
has the ability to adequately pay for
our sins, so God, in His love for us,
came and did it for us - His perfect
sinless life in exchange for ours. By
doing this, He satisfied both the
demands of justice and our need for
love.
. According to the scripture, if you
believe this simple but profound
truth, and that God raised Jesus
from the dead as a sign that you are
forgiven, you are saved. That's right,
when it's all said and done, and jus-
tice demands an account of our lives,
those who have received Jesus as
, Savior and Lord shall be totally free
from the penalty of sin because He
paid it for you.
Now if you ask me, that's Good

FRIDAY, JULY3.2009
NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH. FLORIDA


Climb on a surfboard at free clinic July 11


BETH JONES
News-Leader

- Surfing can be an expensive
sport - $600 for a new board
- but young and old can give
the sport a try for free July 11
during the second annual Surf
Clinic, which is being spon-
sored again by Caf6 Karibo.
The surf 'clinic is slated from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sadler
Road beach access at Slider's
restaurant on South Fletcher
Avenue.
The inaugural event last
summer drew more than 200
potential surfers.
"It was too overwhelming,"
said pro surfer Sean Poynter,
who is organizing this year's
clinic. "We're limiting it to 160
participants this year. It should
run much more smoothly. We
have more support this year."
To ensure one of those 160
spots, participants are encour-
aged to sign up in advance at
Caf6 Karibo, 27 N. Third St.
Anyone signing up that day will
be assigned a later time.
Participants will be divided
into groups of 20 and will be
given an hour of instruction,
starting with three stations -
water safety, board etiquette
and an exercise session ("to
loosen up for the activity of-surf-
ing," Poynter said) - before
hitting the water for 30 minutes
of hands-on surf lessons.
"Surfboards are expensive,"
Poynter said. "It gives that op-
portunity to people who are
interested in the idea of surfing.
They can come out and try to
do it."
Poynter said last year's clin-
ic had an impact on everyone
involved.
"My brother gave his board
away to a kid who couldn't
finance a board," Poynter said..
, "It meant the world to him and
his parents. We're just trying to
give back."
The clinic isn't just for kids,
however. ,;
"We had a 72-year-old lady
out there last-year," Poynter
said. "It's a free surf clinic for.
anyone interested in seeing

PIRATE SOFTBALL CAMP


SUBMrITrED
"Attitude is Everything" was the theme as 50 girls ages 6-12 attended the Fernandina Beach High School Softball
Camp June 15-18. Coach Donnie Fussell helped the girls improve their batting, outfield and infield skills while
keeping a positive attitude.



New board of directors for Family Driven Softball League


With a successful first season com-
pleted, the Family Driven Softball League
has selected new officers for the 2010 sea-
son. The first year's board comprised most-
ly of members from the Springhill Baptist
Church's men's ministry. This was part of
league president Ernie Stuckey's vision
when beginning the league.
As planned, the first season brought
members from other churches who shared
Stuckey's passion. As the season pro-
gressed, the men's ministry's responsibil-
ities decreased as new league members'
responsibilities increased. The new board
of directors share in Stuckey's passion to
build a league where faith and Christian val-
ues take center stage.
The board members are Stuckey (pres-
ident), Chris Spivey (vice president), Ada
Cook (secretary), Bill Sullenger (treasur-


er), John Culbreth (fundraising chairman),
Herman Cook (ASA/FDSL representa-
tive), David Keay (field coordinator).
The excitement surrounding this new
board is that the new officers are a hard
working group. Work has already begun at
the Springhill Softball Complex for the
2010 season. Roughly 100 pine trees have
been cut down along the outfield fence.
The next work day at the complex will
be July 18 as work will begin to install a
sprinkler system and a scoreboard.
The scoreboard was donated by Flori-
da's First Coast ASA and the city of Jack-
sonville Parks and Recreation Department.
The long-range plan is to have lights
installed at the field as all indications show
the league may double in size for the 2010
season.
The FDSL's drawing card was evident


every weekend during the season. More
than 70 games were played in 2009 yet not
one argument with an umpire took place.
Many families came out to either par-
ticipate or watch the fun as the complex
stands were full every weekend. They
brought picnic lunches or would purchase
food from the concession stand, which
raised funds to send families on mission
trips.
Between innings and games, the ball-
park was filled with contemporary
Christian music. Every game began with
both teams in prayer and every game
ended with prayer.
If you would like more information on
how to become a member of-the FDSL or
' would be interested in volunteer work, call
Stuckey at 261-6083 or e-mail him at
egstuckey@bellsouth.net.

This Fourth of uly,


handle with care


If you have not already
done so, many of you
will be setting off fire-
works this July 4 holiday.
I have two children myself
and, like most kids, they love
setting them off. However,
we always stress the proper
use because the risks of
injury are very evident.
According to the
Consumer Product Safety
Commission, approximately
9,000 people will be treated
for fireworks-related injuries
during the course of the year
with the majority of those
occurring around
Independence Day.
Last year, these injuries
occurred most often to the
hands (2,300 injuries), eyes
(1,500 injuries) and the head,
face and ear (1,400 injuries).
Most commonly, these
injuries are burns. In 2004
there were 11 fireworks-
related deaths. About one of
every three people injured
were children under 15 years
of age and males are injured
three times more often than
females.
Annually firecrackers are
associated with the greatest
number of injuries, followed
by sparklers and bottle rock-
ets. Sparklers accounted for
one-third of the injuries to
children less than five years
of age. Sparklers get very
hot (up to 1,000 degrees)
and should not be given to
young children.
Firecrackers often cause
injury because they are held
onto too long before throw-
ing or they are attempted to
be re-lit after a fuse has gone

Summer fishing


ing mackerel
should continue to
delight both off-
shore and
nearshore saltwater fisher-
men this weekend. Reports of
king mackerel continue to �
come from the sea buoy at
Nassau Sound and at the
Nassau live bottom, which is
located just five miles off-
shore of the southern tip of
Amelia Island.
Small boats shouldn't have
a problem navigating into the
ocean this weekend from
Nassau Sound with a flood
tide arriving at 6:22 a.m. With
an early morning flood tide,
king mackerel fishermen
should take advantage of the
clear water conditions and
kingfish either along the '
beaches or at the Nassau
Sound sea buoy before rtin-
ning offshore to the Nassau
bottom. Expect to tangle with
a few sharks, cobia, Spanish
mackerel and the occasional
tarpon. Summer fishing is
good.

Ocean mullet.
TERRY are also run-
LACOSS ning in the
surf and
regarded as
premier live baits for king
mackerel.
Saltwater fishermen enter-
ing the ocean from the St.
Marys inlet will find plenty of
greenies schooling at the tip
of the St. Marys south jetty
rocks. Cigar minnows are
also schooling at the St.
Marys sea buoy.
There have been few
reports of bottom fishing
action at many of the offshore
fish havens, while most salt-
water fishermen are targeting
trolling species. However,
savvy fishermen often take a
few minutes of their fishing
day and rig live minnows to
bottom fishing tackle. Don't
waste your time to anchor; it
takes too much time. Drift
over your favorite kingfish
ledge and drip your live baits
down just to see if any excel-
lent eating red snapper or


so good

grouper are willing to bend a
saltwater fishing rod.
Backwater fishermen will
have an excellent tide to test
their topwater casting skills
with a flood tide arriving in
the backwaters just before 7
a.m. Good daylight arrives
just before 6 a.m, so get out
on those flats early. During
the hot summer fishing sea-
son when sea trout and red-
fish are really blasting topwa-
ter plugs, loud chuggers work
extremely well in the mullet
color pattern. However, a defi-
nite key to your topwater fish-
ing success is locating where
the schools of mullet are
working over flooded flats
and close to sea trout and red-
fish ambush points.
Gold spoons are working
for redfish during the flood
tide while retrieved at creek
mouths, over flooded oyster-
bars or close to points of
spartina marsh grasses.
Surf fishermen are finding
lots of sand fleas in the surf
and fishing them live on No. 4
kahle hooks for pompano
weighing to two pounds.
The News-Leader encour-
ages local anglers to submit
photographs of their catches. E-
mail photos to bjones@fbnews

Surf fishermen need
license byAug 1
Florida's resident saltwa-
ter anglers who fish from
shore or a structure affixed to
shore will need to buy a $7.50
(plus administrative and han-
dling fees) shoreline fishing
license by Aug. 1, unless they
have a regular resident salt-
water fishing license.
The new license applies
only to Florida resident salt-
water anglers who fish from
shore.
Resident anglers may pre-
fer to purchase the regular
recreational saltwater license
that covers them, no matter
where they fish for saltwater
species in Florida.
. Florida has always re-
quired non-residents to have
a license when fishing from
shore and they will still need
to purchase a regular non-res-
ident saltwater fishing
license.
The new shoreline saltwa-
ter fishing license for resi-
dents goes on sale July 15. It
provides all of the same
exemptions as a regular


license, including senior citi-
zens, children, disabled peo-
ple who meet certain qualifi-
cations, active-duty military
personnel while home on
leave and anglers who fish
from a licensed pier.
In addition, the shoreline
license requirement includes
two new exemptions: anglers
drawing food stamps, tempo-
rary cash assistance or
Medicaid; and anglers fishing
in their home counties who
use cane poles or other gear
that does not depend on
mechanical retrieval.
At the request of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
the Florida Legislature
passed the new license
requirement to head off a fed-
eral license requirement that
will go into effect Jan. 1, 2010,
and will have a $15-$25 fee
beginning in 2011.
Florida's new shoreline
license exempts this state's
anglers from the federal
license requirement.

the new shoreline fishing
license, visit MyFWC.com.

American life in stories and songs


For the News-Leader
Contemporary music genres
appear to be easy to define.
There's country/western,
rap, jazz, rock 'n' roll, heavy
metal - each with its own style and
message. But there's another kind
of music that's much harder to cate-
gorize, where the songs capture the
very essence of American life
through the ages. Some might think
of it as "folk music," "Americana" or
"Roots" music, mostly based on the
vagabond life of troubadours and
adventurers.
Gary Culley and Mark Elliott
have been playing this music togeth-
er for nearly 20 years. A chance
meeting at a writer's night after they
had each relocated to Nashville
proved the beginning of a songwrit-
ing and singing partnership that
continues today.
Known for their stellar guitar
playing and near-sibling harmonies,
the duo immediately connected with
audiences through their music. With


Ticket information
Culley and Elliott will perform
on Sunday at "An Evening of.
Story & Song," the popular con-
cert series hosted by Mark and
Donna Paz Kaufman and spon-
sored by First Coast Community
Bank and the Founders of St.
Peter's. The concert will take
place at Bums Hall, St. Peter's
Episcopal Church, 801 Atlantic
Ave. in Fernandina Beach. Doors
will open for general admission
seating at 6:45 p.m.; the show
begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are
$15 and available at First Coast
Community Bank, 1750 South
14th St., or at the door. Call 277-
2664 for information.

ry, hard-working men and women
and some favorite American pas-
times.
Just after the release of their


debut CD, the duo began to tour the
U.S. extensively, winning awards
from Mississippi to California,
including the coveted "New Folk"


award at the Kerrville Folk Festival.
After years of traveling together,
they took a break to pursue their
own successful solo recording and
touring careers.
However, recent performance
opportunities brought them back
together to tour and to record. They
are currently working on a new CD,
due in late fall 2009.
You can listen to their music on
the web at www.myspace.com/cul-
leyandelliott.
Much li ke the people they write
about, Culley and Elliott have blazed
their own trail in Nashville, working
hard to establish a niche as inde-
pendent singer/songwriters and
recording artists.
Realizing early on that they
didn't fit the mold of Nashville's
rising stars, they still opted to
remain in the creative community to
write and record songs from the
