TENNIS Continued from 1A
City Attorney Taummi Bach
said after the meeting that,
after looking at Kalpin's con-
tract, she and Finance
Director Patti Clifford sug-
gested to City Manager
Michael Czymbor that they
make Kalpin a part-time
employee. Although Czymbor
seemed to be OK with that,
she said, later he and
Recreation Director Nan Voit
decided to go with the bidding
process, issuing a request for
proposals.
Bach said she believed the
issue began when someone
called City Hall and asked
about the tennis pro's contract,
but also said it is "routine for
the city to (send out for bids)
with independent contrac-
tors."
Bach also noted that the
city-is "not creating any more
full-time positions."
"I don't believe this to be a
headhunt," said Vice Mayor
Eric Childers at the meeting.
"We have to give the per-
ception we are doing due dili-
gence," Childers went on. "If it
gets to the commission level,
I will support (Kalpin). ...
please believe it, it's not a
witch hunt. As far as this conm-
missioner, we're not hiring
anybody. I think (the city man-
ager) is doing the right thing
... just take a deep breath, it'll
be over soon."
"I see no chance of your
being replaced," he told
Kalpin.
Commissioner Jeff Bunch
said he knew nothing of the
tennis pro's contract going out
to bid, but added that "if it gets
to (commissioner) level, we'll
look at it, but right now it's
not at our level."
Czymbor told the crowd
that their support of Kalpin
was "a testament to the impact
he had in your lives. ...
Hopefully, you can give him a
recommendation."
"What we have a fiscal

responsibility to do is provide
the best value to our citizens,"
Czymbor went on. "(We want
to) give everyone who's
uniquely qualified the chance
to present a proposal to the
city ... we routinely do this for
all our goods and services."
However, Widnes retorted
that her understanding was
that other city positions have
not been similarly put out to
bid.
But, said Childers, "I'm
unaware of too many (city
workers) that are independ-
ent out there. The tennis pro
is not a non-gratis job. It does-
n't last forever."
"I can assure you we will be
talking about this after the
meeting," Mayor Susan Steger
told residents at the meeting.
Steger also noted that the city
had already received four bid
proposals for Kalpin's job.
According to Kalpin,
Czymbor never called him to
discuss the matter, and he
,says city commissioners only
found out about it after he con-
tacted state Rep. Janet Adkins'
Communications Director
Amanda Young, who contact-
ed Childers. "(Young) said it
was a major slap in the face,"
says Kalpin.
Czymbor said after the
meeting that proposal
requests for city contractors
are done "on a reasonable
basis," but also said that there
is no set schedule for such
proposals. He added that the
city is considering coming up
with a policy for bid contracts
and will soon be "looking at
all Parks & Recreation inde-
pendent contractors."
"I don't like the way it was
handled," says Kalpin. "The
city commissioners said,
'Lanny, don't take it personal-
ly.' But how can I not take it
personally?"
Czymbor said the matter
will probably come before city
commissioners for delibera-
tion some time in August.

City pays more


for legal work


ANGELA DAUGIHT'RY
News l.cader

Tlie city will pay'local attor-
ney Clinch Kavanaugh an
extra $7,400 t tdo additional
legal work for a downtown
water front project.
City commissioners
authorized Kavanaugh last
January to write a title opinion
on Front Street for a fee "not
to exceed $18,500." The title
work was necessary for the
city to move forward with its
infrastructure improvements
for the revitalization of the
waterfront.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor has since authorized
the additional payment, and
that was questioned Tuesday
night by Commissioner
Jeffrey Bunch.
'"These are two different
scopes of work," replied City
Attorney Tammi Bach, in
explaining the extra cost.
"One was a title search for
Front Street. The other is
issues along Front Street that
need to be cleared up."
Kavanaugh said afterward
he presented his title opinion
to the city in March. One
important detail he discovered
was that the city does not own
South Front Street between
Centre and Ash streets. That
portion, he said, is owned by
CSX railroad.
"We know clearly we
don't own between Centre
and Ash streets," said Kava-
naugh.
Kavanaugh said the addi-
tional work he is doing for the
city includes "getting the title
problems cleared up."
Bach also said there was
"ambiguities and confusion"
about who owns all of North
Front Street, and questions
about who owns the property
on the east side of Front


Street.
Bach added that, although
legal services do not go out
for bid, any contract over
$15,000 must go before city
commissioners for approval.
Kavanaugh, she said, did
another "not to exceed" pro-
posal for the $7,400.
CSX, said Kavanaugh, has
been "unbelievably respon-
sive",to the project, and also
good about providing historic
records to the city. According
to Kavanaugh, the railroad
had records and ordinances
that even the city didn't have,
stored in "huge warehouses."
CSX, he said, currently has a
"very detailed easement" that
allows the city to use the prop-
erty.
Kavanaugh said he
believes the title problems
can be resolved out of
court.
Property title searches are
traditionally done to deter-
mine who actually owns the
property, and if there are any.
liens against it. Searching
involves tracking ownership
through land and legal
records. This search, said
Kavanaugh, was particularly
complex because of the area's'
long history, starting with
Spanish land grants and also
involving Florida Railroad
founder David Yulee. He said
he also found that some land
was replatted but not record-
ed, and that Front Street was
at one time marshland that
was later filled in. He also
found some legal property
descriptions that were not cor-
rect.
Front Street is part of the
city's Community Redevelop-
ment Area, an area designated
Sas "blighted" that is project-
ed to receive future tax gains
after improvements.

Eight Flags Shrimp Festival in
May, would continhte with fea-
tures about various city depart-

ments do not indicate why that
programming schedule was not
implemented or what plans may

Czymbor first broached the
need for a new city TV policy to
the commission in January
2008, but has not brought a pol-
icy back for review since. He
told the commission this spring,
however, that he would propose
such a policy.
Czymbor said he plans to
propose "a comprehensive use
policy" for a "public, education-
al and government," or PEG,
television channel. That would
be distinct from unfettered pub-
lic access television in which
citizens may submit content
without censorship.
"We control the content"
under a PEG policy, the city
manager said. '"There will be
restrictions."
He has viewed some of the
new content on channel 29,
Czymbor said (he said he
enjoyed "Spotlight on the 27th
Kingfish Champions
Tournament"), but Rooney is
screening the programs.
Czymbor said he plans to
establish an advisory board to
help the city oversee the TV
programming and policies.
There could be paid pro-

"Someone could sponsor a pro-
gram, but not advertise on a

Searchamelia.TV is solicit-
ing money for its programming
now. "If you are interested in

site information on channel 29.
First Baptist Church servic-
es are no longer broadcast on
the channel. They are available
instead at the church's website,
Czymbor said. Czymbor told
commissioners in 2008 that if
the city allows churches to have
free programming, it must also
allow any organization, no mat-
ter how controversial, to run
programs on the channel.
Czymbor said then that citi-
zens who want to broadcast
their own programs on the pub-
lic access channel could bring
their tapes or discs to City Hall
for approval. The recording
would then be given to the
information technology depart-
ment and put into an available
time slot on the channel. The
city does not provide cable
equipment or cameras to citi-
zens.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
said last year that PEG policies
are standard for municipalities
that want to exclude religious,
political and commercial broad-
casts from their public access
stations. Bach also said that
without a regulatory policy,
cities cannot by law regulate
content unless it is obscene or
pornographic.

'Drop Your Reins' helps


build children's esteem


Danielle Herb. 15, was
given the label of ADH) at age
5. Some common traits of chil-
dren labeled as AIDHD are low
self-esteem, shyness, inability
to communicate, being bullied,
misunderstood for their gifts,
never feeling like they fit in,
poor grades and more.
Danielle is on a mission to
help other children and par-
ents understand there is anoth-
er way that will lift their chil-
dren to success and build upon
their strengths instead of cap-
italizing on their perceived
weaknesses.
Along with her mother.
Marianne St. Clair, Danielle
has developed The Drop Your
Reins Experience to give chil-
dren and parents new skills to
overcome their fears, ways to
manage their energy on
demand, raise their confidence
and self-esteem so when they


return to school they are on a
new path of success.
Local ADHD and artistic
children had the opportunity
earlier this summer to partici-
pate in l)anielle's program
involving horses. The horse
mirrors you and assists
you in "seeing the real you
through the horse's view," she
said.
"I was so impressed by
Danielle Herb and the 'Drop
Your Reins' experience," said
Nassau County Commissioner
Stacy Johnson. "She was
poised, eloquent and inspiring.
I was amazed at how the chil-
dren gained self-confidence
and self-respect after just a few
minutes of training with her.
She is a great young leader and
I look forward to working with
her in the future."
Debbie Manser. owner of
Cheers Horse Ranch, is host-


ing clinics this summer at her
ranch in Yulee on "Natural
HIorsemanship."
The Drop Your Reins
Experience focuses on the
needs of ADHD and autistic
children ages 4-18 with aca-
demic and/or social difficul-
ties. Through fun experiential
equine activities, children build
upon their natural strengths to
enhance communication, prob-
lem-solving and social skills
and increase self-confidence in
a safe, educational and recre-
ational atmosphere.
Danielle and her mother
will offer a clinic this Saturday
from 9 a.m. to noon at Cheers
Ranch, 96841 Blackrock Road.
Space is limited and other clin-
ics are planned.
For information contact
Danielle at dropyourreins@

Nassau County Commis-
sioners and the Nassauville
Volunteer Fire Association have
entered into, an agreement to
combine operational services
in order to provide a higher
level of fire and emergency
medical services to the resi-
dents of the area.
Nassauville firefighters are
classified as "reserves" within
the county department, and
they range from support per-
sonnel driver-operators to fire-
fighter I and II, EMTs and para-
medics. They train and drill


with their career counterparts,
and respond to the same emer-
gencies.
The volunteer station on
Nassauville Road currently
houses two fire engines, one
pumper/tanker, which brings
water to remote areas, and one
support air-truck, which sup-
plies air canisters to firefight-
ers on-scene.
Reserve firefighters are
expected to volunteer at least 24
hours a month, which are
served at either the Nassauville
station or at a regular county


station where they serve as an
add ed crew member to the reg-
ular career crew.
The reserves respond from
their home or work location (if
the employer permits), and go
directly to the fire station or the
emergency scene.
County residents, regard-
less of where they live, are
asked to contact County
Fire Chief Chuck Cooper (491-
7525) if they would be inter-
ested in joining one of the vol-
unteer departments across the
county.

FRIDAY, July 10. 2009 NEWS News-Leader


"Kilroy was here," "Kilroy says" and "Kilroy
wants to llow" were all popular adages familiar
to those of the World War II, Korean War and
Vietnam War era. With a bit of military humor
I'll explain how the Kilroy bug suckered me
into researching this infamous character that
graces the wall of the World War II Memorial in
Washington, D.C.
During a visit to by my birthplace my moth-
er sent me on a mission to seek out old newspa-
per accounts in historical
archives of birth, wedding
and obituary announcements
of long lost relatives.
' " With 22 years of military
service I figured the only
way to approach this endeav-
S or was to implement those
instilled disciplines learned
through numerous tours of
VETERAN'S duty with the Air Force. My
CORNER Conunander-in-Chief (Mom)
had spoken. Her duty bound,
but limited troop source
Debbie (me) then set out to fulfill
Walsh this important mission objec-
tive. That's when my "mili-
tary mode" kicked in. I was sure my dedication,
loyalty, tenacity and commitment would see me
through this mission and hopefully acquire suc-
cessful results.
My first stop was to the local public library,
which boasted tons of genealogy resources.
After several days, I had scanned what seemed
like hundreds of rolls of microfiche and
throughout the process one common news col-


Kilroy was here


umn kept appearing from the early 1940s to the
mid-1950s - "Kilroy Says."
It appeared this person naned Kilroy
recounted the activities of the hometown youth
while they served in the armed forces. It
reported their induction into service, changes
in duty assignments, promotions, when they
were home on furlough and injuries incurred
during battle. Unfortunately, it also covered
their deaths during their harrowing fight for
our country.
In an August 1952 "Kilroy Says" column it
recapped the Korean War injury of a hometown
son who was unmarried at the time and per-
forming a three-year stint in the Navy. That per-
son was my Dad. Needless to say, I was ecstatic
to find this news clipping and it has since been
ensconced in our family memorabilia records.
At this juncture, my immediate Commander-in-
Chief announced the family mission was com-
plete.
Then over the next month as I started
researching other information for other articles
there it was again, "Kilroy was here." Only this
time, the old adage included a picture of a
famous caricature. Then it clicked!
I, too, had seen the graffiti of the little bald-
headed man with the distinctive Jimmy Durante
nose, but until then I'd never really wondered of
its origin. I was now on a new mission - to find
out just exactly "who was Kilroy?"


My first web search hit referred to the TV
series "M*A*S*H" where Hawkeye Pierce
(Alan Alda) was seen scribbling "Kilroy" on a
dirty window of an Army Iransport bus as his
cohort in schemes peeped over the lowered
bus window imitating the bald-headed man in
the Kilroy sketch.
Supposedly, the graffiti is located on other
significant and difficult-to-reach places through-
out the world: the torch of the Statue of Liberty,
the Marco Polo Bridge in China, a high girder
of the George Washington Bridge in New York,
the peak of Mt. Everest and the underside of
the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. It's also allegedly
been scribbled in the dust on the Moon,
inscribed in World War II pillboxes scattered
around Germany and sporadically decorates
the sewers of Paris.
Its origins are open to speculation. The
same doodle appears in other cultures, but the
character peeping over the wall is named "Foo."
In Great Britain it was "Chad" while in Chile the
graphic is known as a "sapo," a Spanish/Portu-
guese word meaning toad, indirectly referring
to frogs because of their large protruding eyes.
It is said that Adolf Hitler believed Kilroy
was an American super-spy because the graffiti
kept turning up in secure Nazi installations
where it appeared on captured Allied military
equipment. Others believe Stalin encountered
"Kilroy" after entering an outhouse at the


Potsdam Conference, which sought the terms
of an unconditional surrender for Japan during
World War II. Upon exiting, Stalin asked, "Who
is this Kilroy?"
As military service rivalries go, some insist
the inscription was started by an Army soldier
who was sick of the Air Force bragging they
were always first on the scene. The drawing
then began appearing in absurd places to indi-
cate someone had, in fact, arrived prior to the
Air Force.
One theory identifies the man behind the
signature as James Kilroy, an American ship-
yard inspector. During World War II he claimed
to have used the phrase to mark the rivets on
any ship he had inspected. Since ships were
being sent out to the forces without being paint-
ed, when sealed areas were opened for mainte-
nance, soldiers found the unexplained name
scrawled inside. Thousands of servicemen may
have potentially seen his slogan on the outgo-
ing ships and the ominous scribbling sparks.
this legend of Kilroy's beginning.
The phrase and drawing then began appear-
ing everywhere, especially in newly captured
areas or upon U.S. military landing sites. At
later dates, the phrase was.found in places no
graffiti artist could have reached, which then
fed to the mythical significance. After all, if
Kilroy could leave his mark there, who knew
where else he could go.
To this day the legacy lives on. "Kilroy was
here" graffiti is rumored to grace road barriers
on main supply routes, inside portable toilets
and on warehouse walls all around Iraq and
Afghanistan.

Home mission celebrates 44 years


1 also and my maidens will fast like-
wise; and will I go in unto the King,
which is not according to the law, and if
I perish, I perish, let me perish for there
is work that must be done. I'm going to
see the King.
Home mission of Friendship Baptist
Church celebrated 44 years of service
recently with courageous missionaries
taking a stand for God, believing soon
and very soon we're going to see the
King as their theme song.
God allowed Sis. Corelha Dinkins to
give the history of the ministry as well
as being a faithful member the entire 44
years, the only charter member. There
are others who joined along the way to
help Dinkins carry on the works of the
Lord and it truly takes dedicated
Christians to do home mission.
Sis. Elva Jones gave the message,
"There is a Woman in the Mist." Thelme
scripture: Esther 4:16.
Evangelist Clara Stamps ministered
the rededication mission pledge, which
can be used in our everyday work for
the Lord. I am persuaded by the teach-
ing of the blessed Bible, by daily read-


'i ;-. '"~ ing, meditation and
'... . communion with my
Lord and Savior Jesus
SChrist, to live an
S upright Christian life,
to practice His teaching
in dealing with my fel-
low man. To dedicate
my talents and give of
my time, influence and
NOW AND means to teaching or
THEN spreading the Christian
religion at home and
abroad. To win souls
Maybelle through personal serv-
Kirkland ice for Christ, to
encourage and help in
tihe citlisment of young people in
Christian work and make my home a
center of Christian light and love. To
these lends, I pledge to devote myself
and seek divine aid and guidance daily,
tlhat I may become a living witness and a
brigtl and shining light for my Lord.
This pledge can be used daily for all
of us in our walk with the Lord. Sis.
Laiura Rhodes is the president and the
Rev. James Payne is pastor.


When the Peck High School class of
1959 celebrated 50 years, they went old
school. Music, caterers and a bus and
what a great time they had. It was men-
tioned that we forgot to tell what bus we
used. Of course, it was Robbins Coach,
Samuel Robbins, owner.
Local classmates are still gathering
together and will continue throughout
the year as other members come home
to visit.
There were also members of the
class celebrating 45-50 years of mar-
riage to each other and there were oth-
ers trying to get a relationship started
with each other. God has a way that's
mighty sweet.
The family of the late Lonnie Albertie
says thanks for all acts of kindness
shown to them during their bereave-
ment and pray God's continued bless-
ings upon all of you.
Birthday wishes to Sebrina Smith-
Henry, Deondra Grant, Carminique

FRIDAY, July 10. 2009/News-Leader


RELIGION


An honest prayer from the heart, a changed life


There I was flat on my back
- the whole thing such a
mystery. If it hadn't been
for the tall green grass
occasionally rubbing against my face
and feet, I would have likely forgot-
ten where I was. It was all so amaz-
ing.
I don't know about you, but as a
teenager I liked looking at stars. I'm
sure that living in Vermont, where
stargazing is incredible, had a lot to
do with my fascination. As I lay on
my back wondering how it all came
into being, I couldn't help but
acknowledge the limitations of my
thinking. How could there be no end
to it all? Just the idea that the stars
and the sky go on forever and ever
was enough to make my mind come
to a screeching halt.


It was back
then, as a young
curious teenager,
that some of life's
deepest questions
began bubbling up
in my pool of
understanding.
Those questions,
and an active imag-
PUPIT nation, led me on
NOTES some very adven-
turesome journeys.
One thought
Pastor always led to anoth-
Rob Goyette er - one clue to the
next. And, just
when I would stand at the door of
solving the mysteries of the uni-
verse, it would happen. That
inescapable, seemingly unbreakable


cord attached to the Earth and my
limited understanding, would jerk
me back to the ground. The whole
thing was frustrating to say the least.
Looking back, strangely enough,
I'm grateful for the experience.
That's when I learned to pray. There
was something about reaching the
end of myself that caused me to do
more than just look up at the sky. I
began looking to God. Now I need to
be upfront and tell you, I groped for
answers in a lot of other places
before I finally turned to the Lord.
Actually, I was so confused by all the
religious and non-religious argu-
ments that I almost quit my search.
If it hadn't been for an inner know-
ing that there was something more,
and a loving God who was drawing
me, I'm sure I would have let the


whole thing go.
I'll never forget when my strug-
gle came to an end. With so many
theories and opinions spinning
around in my mind I finally blurted
out a prayer that changed my life for-
ever. "God, if you're real, I've got to
have some help. Do something with
my life." Interestingly enough, it was
just that simple. I hadn't quoted long
passages of scripture or.helped a
bunch of old ladies across the street,
I just prayed an honest prayer from
my heart.
It was that honest prayer that
seemed to get God's attention. I tell
you from that moment forward,
supernatural things began happen-
ing for me. And to think, it was so
simple. Situation after situation, cir-
cumstance after circumstance, sud-


denly my life began moving in ways
that only God could orchestrate. I
couldn't deny it. It was as though I
had let go of the steering wheel and
said, "Here God, You drive," and He
took me up on my offer.
That was over 25 years ago. A lot
has changed since then. I have a
beautiful family - an amazing con-
gregation who call me their pastor -
a few gray hairs and, most impor-
tantly, a wonderful relationship with
the guy who hung all the stars in the
sky - Jesus Christ.
"Blessed are they which do
hunger and thirst after righteous-
ness: for they shall be filled."
(Matthew 5:6)
Robert L. Goyette is pastor of
Living Waters World Outreach Center

Who Was Jesus'
Ever feel like Jesus has been kid-
napped by the Christian Right or the
Secular Left? Saving Jesus is a revo-
lutionary DVD-based small group
exploration of Jesus Christ featuring
modern religious voices of our day.

ed discussion and a 20-minute video
segment featuring Marcus Borg,

Fox, Amy-Jill Levine, James Forbes

FOR THE PIRATES


x .PHOTOS BY BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
F . The Pirates were up bright and early Thursday in their fourth week of summer condi-
tioning. The Fernandina Beach High School football players were in the weight room at
6 a.m. before hitting the practice field for drills. The Pirates leave this morning for
Tallahassee and will participate this weekend in a team camp at Florida State
University. FBHS opens the 2009 campaign Aug. 28 with a Kickoff Classic, although
an opponent hasn't been secured. The regular season kicks off Sept. 4 in Hilliard for
the Pirates, who play this fall in the district with Yulee, West Nassau, University
Christian, Bolles, Episcopal and Interlachen. Pictured, top row from left: Dartaine
Dunwood with a catch; Pirates put in some laps. Pictured, second row from left:

Athletes showing artistic expression through their 'body art


I am a Tarheel. Born in North
Carolina and graduated from
Chapel Hill, I took great pride
in watching this year's NCAA
basketball tournament. The
Tarheels were led to the champi-
onship under senior point guard Ty
Lawson. Just last week, Lawson
entered the NBA and landed with
the Denver Nuggets.
Now, if any of you happened to
watch the Nuggets in the NBA play-
offs, you may recall the abundance
of "body art" or tattoos on the play-
ers. Everyone on the Nuggets is
painted. So, it will be interesting to
see how quickly the "unmarked"
Lawson will join his teammates in
inked expression.
Many professional athletes sport
body art. Some, such as Mike
Tyson's facial design, s(eem some-
what bizarre, while others have a

sonal meaning.
Shaquille O'Neal

Superman logo,
Kobe Bryant has a
crown with his
wife's name and
Marquis Daniels of
the Indiana Pacers
has his entire back
emblazoned with a

Stephon Marbury

Tattoos continue to become more
popular with nearly 40 percent of the
population between the ages of 18 to
40 having at least one tattoo and


women making up 65 percent of that
group. With the increase in populari-
ty of tattoos, so does the number of
facilities offering these. With that in
mind, some thoughts towards safety
need to be considered.
SFlorida state law requires "gener-
al supervision" of tattoo practices be
done under the care of a physician,
ostopath or dentist. That profession-
al does not have to be on site, but is
required to perform a semi-annual
review and inspection of techniques
and verification of equipment sterili-
zation procedures. The supervising
physician is also to provide semi-
annual training in the areas of infec-
tion control, sterilization and emer-
gency procedures.
Professional tattoos are applied
by licensed tattoo artists using a tat-
too machine or "tattoo gun." The
artist should wash his hands and


wear gloves. You should only choose
a studio that is licensed and clean.
Needles are single-use only and are
removed from sterile packaging
before use. Instruments are to be
sterilized after each use with an
autoclave. An autoclave maintains a
temperature of at least 246 degrees
for 30 minutes in order to fully steril-
ize the equipment. Autoclaves must
be regularly tested to ensure they
are working properly. Your artist
should gladly show you the steriliza-
tion equipment as well as the inspec-
tion certifications.
There are obvious risks involved
in getting a tattoo. The most serious
are life-threatening infections, such
as HIV or hepatitis, from unclean
needles. This is completely prevent-
able if equipment and needles are
clean.
Even in sterile environments,


other infections, such as Staph, may
also develop. This often is the result
of poor aftercare of the tattoo. Your
tattoo artist should discuss with you
the proper care of the freshly-inked
area as well as what to watch for
over the following days. Allergic
reactions to the ink are also occa-
sionally seen.
This column is written to discuss
issues regarding sports, medicine and
safety. It is not intended to serve as a

It is only designed to offer guidelines

Drift fishing boats are enjoying excellent bottom fishing action for grouper and red
snapper during recent days. Many charter fishing and recreational offshore fishermen
are reporting some of the best bottom fishing action in years. However, the South
Atlantic Fishery Commission surveys show that grouper and snapper stocks are
depleted. The best survey fishermen know is made with a baited hook.

King mackerel weighing

reported at many of the off-

Surf fishermen are report-

fishermen should take their


time and pick out the larger
sand fleas for bait: Large

Be sure to barb a live sand
flea on each of the two bottom

Miles Jaye back for July birthday


CROSSWORD, SUDOKU
Music NOTES
OUT AND ABOUT
CLASSIFIED


FRIDAY. JULY 10,2009
NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FLORIDA


For the News-Leader


Beach for his second perform-
ance on the island at 'The
Biggest July Birthday Party Ever," to be
held July 31 from 6:30-11 p.m. at the
Fernandina Beach Women's Club.
The event is described by organizer
Joyce Jones as "a sizzling summer social
designed to promote fun, social interac-
tion and celebration among mature
adults."
Jaye, who will perform along with
saxophone sensation Allana Southerland
and The Fusion Band of Jacksonville, is a
classically trained violinist and R&B and
contemporary jazz composer.
During his 25-year music career, Jaye
has worked extensively in the continen-
tal United States and Hawaii and interna-
tionally across five continents, perform-
ing in Australia, Burma, Columbia,
England, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan and
Peru. At a young age he had the honor of
performing at the Lincoln Center and
Carnegie Hall. He has since lit up stages
around the world including jazz festivals
in Holland, France and Switzerland.
Jaye is a soulful R&B vocalist and as a
musician is highly proficient on the
piano, flute, guitar, upright string bass,
saxophone, bass guitar and violin. He
easily goes from a cool, sultry serenade
to turning up the heat with his fiery red
hot electric violin.
Jaye adds to his credits being a distin-
guished composer, contemporary jazz

Composer and R&B recording star
Miles Jaye performs July 31 in
Fernandina Beach.

Inc. He has written and recorded 40 orig-
inal compositions spanning 11 albums
and CDs on which can be heard the
musical talents of jazz giants Nat
Adderley Jr., Dexter Wansel, Roy Ayers,
George Duke and Branford Marsalis.
He has also shared the live perform-
ance stage with other such notable
artists as Grover Washington Jr., Lee
Ritenour, Waymon Tisdale, CeCe
Winans, Alex Bugnon, Bobby Caldwell,


Chaka Khan, Boney James, Natalie Cole,
Jeffery Osborne, Nancy Wilson, Larry
Coryell, Patti LaBelle and the legendary
B.B. King, just to name a few.
Jaye served five years in the U.S. Air
Force and that spirit of service shows in
his dedication to giving back to his com-
munity and the communities where he
performs. His first visit and performance
on Amelia Ihland in 2007 was to lend his
support to the fight against domestic vio-
lence and HIV/AIDS in Nassau County

his own style of "Cool Islafid Breeze" to a
hot summer night.

JOANI ELEMENT
For the News-Leader
International best-selling author MJ.
Rose is attractive, articulate and an expert
on reincarnation, the jumping-off point of
her attention-getting, two-part series. Tlhe
Reincarnationist and The Memorist.
Fox Network has bought a pilot one-
hour drama based on The Reincarnationist,
raising the expectation that reincarnation
may soon go mainstream.
Or is belief in reincarnation already
mainstream? Rose heads many chapters of
The Memorist with explanatory quotes
mITTED from serious thinkers such as Count Leo
t the Tolstoy, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jack London
and Socrates, as well as The Kabbalah.
Each quotation states that in one way or
another the soul survives death to live
again And again in different times, in differ-
ent forms, behind different faces, but
efea- always trailing the unresolved problems of
duled the past as the soul strives to "develop all
n of the perfections." (The Kabbalah)
ect a Still, no one needs to believe in the pos-
of sibility of memories bubbling up from past

in love, dancing to the romantic strains of
)ickie "Stars Fell on Alabama." Or hum the
theme to the 1975 movie "Jaws" and let the


tingles climb up
your spine all
these years later.
Remember how
music evokes
memories in all of
us, suspend your
skepticism for a
time, and pick up
The Memorist's
riveting tale of
Meer Logani, who
lives with a
sketchy, haunting
melody that
inconveniently - and without warning -
plunges her into the intimate thoughts and
happenings of a life (or two) that she's
lived centuries before.
Early in the book, Meer is presented
with two pieces of paper. a drawing of a
wooden box, one she drew from memory
as a child, and a page from a current auc-
-tion catalog showing the identical box and
identifying it as one owned by a friend of
Ludwig van Beethoven. Is there any way
she could have known about the box as a
child? What connection could it possibly
have to her? Did she or did she not actually
live as Margaux Neidermier in 1814, meet
the musician Beethoven, and become the
link to an ancient, lost flute inscribed with

Tennis players make a racket


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Several dozen tennis players
packed City Hall Tuesday evening in
support of coach Lanny Kalpin, who
was recently informed that his con-
tract will be going out to bid. Kalpin
offers tennis lessons at the Central
Park tennis courts for all ages, plus
tennis camps.
Dressed in tennis attire and car-
rying signs and tennis rackets, sup-
porters told city commissioners of
their undying support for Kalpin's
teaching techniques and their satis-
faction with his many programs in
Central Park.
"Lanny has the right attitude, per-
sonality and skills," Paul Griffin told
city commissioners. "You've got a
problem if you get another coach ...
people are very happy with his serv-
ice."
Michael Graham, who said he has
been taking lessons since 2007, said
Kalpin's coaching was "the best thing
that's ever happened to me."
"Why would someone submit a pro-
posal if someone is doing an out-
standing job?" asked Graham. "You
will not find someone toreplace him."
Jane Scanlan said Kalpin is "unpar-
alleled in his ability" and "excellent
beyond excellent."
"You do not take a contract and put
it up for bid," added Scanlan. "You are
picking on one person, from our per-
spective. This man is great, the epit-
ome of what this city needs to have ...
let him continue to motivate children
and adults."
"The city manager said we have to
give other people the chance (to be
tennis pro)," said Betsy Widnes, a
county resident who organized the
protest. "Something does not smell
right here ... the city manager did not
have a clue as to how valuable Lanny
Kalpin is. Now you know."
Kalpin, who has been a profes-
sional tennis coach for many years,
says he approached the city in 2005
about offering tennis programs for
residents because nobody else was
doing it. As with all other instructors
for the city, Kalpin keeps 80 percent of
the proceeds, while the rest goes to
the city. The city received about
$15,000 from Kalpin's tennis programs
last year.
Kalpin said he heard about a month
ago that City Manager Michael
Czymbor was going to put his job out
to bid, but says at the time he didn't
believe it. He says he does not know
what prompted the city to suddenly
ask for bid proposals for tennis instruc-
tor.
"They have never done this to
instructors in the (Atlantic Avenue)
rec center for 10 years," said Kalpin.
"They have never done this to any-
body, but they are doing it to me."

'Pirate' firm airs programs


on city's TV channel 29
MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader -


Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers will consider on July 21 a new
policy for programming on the city's
television channel, more than three
weeks after some new programs
were first broadcast.
Pirate Communications, a private
commercial enterprise that includes
SearchAmelia.TV, began broadcast-
ing four hours of programming on
Comcast Channel 29 on June 29.
According to its website,
SearchAmelia.TV will expand to six
hours by Aug. 1 and undertake "a
full 24-hour programming by the end
of the year."
Lawrence Mackie of Pirate
Communications approached the city
in April about providing program-
ming to the city. Mackie is
Commissioner Eric Childers' broth-
er-inlaw. Both Mackie and Childers
are members of the Fernandina
Pirates Club.
Some programming is local, such
as an hour-long program "Live from
the Peck Center: Amelia Arts


A city commissioner's brother-in-law
is producing programsfor the city
TVchannel although the city has yet
to approve a policy for programming.


Academy Spring Recitals."
Some is not, such as "Blistur in
Concert," where the Jacksonville
band was taped on St. Maarten's
Island, where Pirate Communications
also has an office. Blistur played at
Mackie's 50th birthday party.
Some programs contain what
could be construed as advertising or
marketing. A program on The Florida
House Inn, for example, included
video of the owner giving a tour of the
business. Another features local real
estate agent Nick Deonas, a former
county commissioner and city fire-
fighter, chatting with his son, Jamie,
who runs the family boat business,
about fishing, and boating. Nick and
Jamie Deonas contribute local news
and items on real estate and boating


Czymbor


to Search Amelia News, which is part
of the firm's website.
City Manager Michael Czymbor
said the company approached the
city. "They made a proposal based
on our lack of programming," he said.
There is no contract with the pri-
vate firm, and there was no bidding
process, Czymbor said.
According to an April 24 letter
from Mackie to the city, representa-
tives of Search Amelia met with
Information Technology Director
Mike Rooney about a one-hour show
called "What's Up Amelia?" The let-
ter said the show would be produced
for the city at no charge but the com-

YHS




leader

MICHAEL PARNELL
KATHIE COLGROVE
Community Newspapers
There will be at least two new prin-
cipals at Nassau County high schools
this fall, including Yulee High School,
and a new principal at Yulee Middle
School.
DeArmas Graham, assistant prin-
cipal at Yulee High since it opened in
fall 2006, has been recommended by
schools Superintendent John Ruis to
become principal at YHS. The Nassau
County School Board was to vote on
his appointment Thursday night.
Graham would replace the school's
only principal thus .
far, Diane Romon,
who was promoted
to an administrative
position. Natasha
Drake, a teacher at
Hilliard Middle-
Senior High School,
was recommended
to become the assis' Graham
tant principal at
Yulee High.
Romon and Laurie Kepner, former
principal at Atlantic Elementary
School, have newly created adminis-
trative jobs. Romon will be program
coHiifpiance manager for secondary
schools and Kepner program compli-
ance manager for elementary schools.
Kepner lost her job at Atlantic
Elementary after that school was
closed this spring with its students
moving to other Fernandina Beach
elementary schools.
"Both (Romon and Kepner) have
been very successful in leading their
schools to outstanding performance
levels," Ruis said Thursday in dis-
cussing their promotions. The new
positions are a response to new state
rules and the school district's efforts
to improve performance by certain
students, he said.
The federal No Child Left Behind
act applies criteria for "adequate year-
ly progress" to specific subgroups of
students, such as African-Americans,
Hispanics, Native Americans and var-
ious disadvantaged groups.
Working with school administra-
tors and teachers, Romon and Kepner
will "target those kids in the subgroups
and monitor their progress and assist

WNHS contests'D' grade


KATHIE COLGROVE
Community Newspaper
West Nassau High School's
grade may go from a "D" to a
"C," pending approval of an
appeal.
."We reviewed our data and
found an error in the 11th
grade and 12th grade retake
column, which would ultimate-
ly give us the 10-point bonus
needed to earn a 'C' letter
grade." said Cynthia Grooms,
WNHS assistant principal, on
Monday. "We're really hoping
the outcome will be a positive
one,"
Superintendent John Ruis
said the error was that one stu-'
dent's FCAT score was used
when an ACT score should
have been used instead. FCAT
rules allow for SAT and ACT


passing test scores to be sub-
stituted when a child fails the
FCAT, but the school's data did
not reflect that change, despite
school officials having made
that change during a stale-
allowed window of time earlier
in the school year.
Grooms said Principal Ron
Booker discovered tlie error
and submitted a letter of appeal
July 1 to Mary Duffy, coordi-
nator of student services with
the Nassau County School
District.
"(Duffy) then reviewed the
data and found grounds for an
appeal, based on the Florida
Department of Education's
omission of student data and
data miscalculations," Grooms
said.
Schools wishing to appeal
grades have 30 days from June


19 to submit a request.
However, Grooms said she
is not certain how long it will
take to gel approval, if at all.
Booker came under fire for
the school's "D "grade..al a
Nassau County School Board
meeting lJune 25.
Because of the grade,
Booker's name was removed(
from a consent agenda that
included other principals' con-
tracts following an objection
raised by Vice Chair Kathy
Burns.
During the meeting, Ruis
said the school was one point
from a "B," but the lower quar-
tile's scores play a significant
role in. the grading, and without
significant improvement in that
quartile, the school's grade gets
penalized a letter.
Though Ruis expressed dis-


appointment in West Nassau's
school grade, he did support
Booker's leadership at the
school. "... I do feel the leader-
ship was being provided there
as providing a sound basis for
them to improve and get back
on track," he said.
However, Burns said she
could not vote to approve
Booker's reappointment with
the "lack of consistency" and
WNHS's school grade.
The school's grade has fluc-
tuated from B-D since Booker's
tenure began in 2005. Ruis said
the issue of Booker's contract
would be readdressed at,
Thursday's school board meet-
ing, as he expects to have a full
board present. Board member
Jim Adams was absent from the
last meeting because he was
out of town, Ruis said.

in efforts to improve their per..
formance as we move through
the school year," Ruis said.
Both Romon and Kelpner
were principals of schools that
received an "A" grade from
the state using criteria applied(
by the federal law and meas-
ured on Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Tests, or FCATs.
Dale Braddock, l.nt ini.
principal at Hilliard Middle-
Senior High School, also has a
new administrative position.
Braddock, Hilliard princi-
pal since 1997, was named the
secondary education director
for the school district. He will
have broad responsibilities
with the administrative and
teaching staffs at the middle
and high schools, Ruis said.
Braddock replaces James
Rodeffer, a former Callahan
Middle School principal, who
has been named principal at
Yulee Middle School. Deonia
Simmons left YMS to become
a school superintendent in
Virginia.
Fernandina Beach High
School Principal Jane Arnold
was the onlyonoe of the four
principals who had been reap-
pointed to her job before
Thursday night's meeting of
the school board.
West Nassau High School
Principal Ron Booker's reap-


pointment was rejected by the
school board on a 2-2 vote
June 25. West Nassau's drop
from a "B" school to a "D"
school in state testing was
cited during the discussion
about Booker's contract.
The board was expected to
reconsider Booker's appoint-
ment Thursday, as well as
those of Graham, Drake and
John Mazella, who was expect-
ed to be reappointed principal
of Fernandina Beach Middle
School. Mazella resigned and
left his position for 31 days, a
requirement that allows him
to keep his job and maintain
his status in a state retirement
program.
Braddock's replacement
was named June 25. Brent
Tilley, a Hilliard resident who
previously served as assistant
principal at Yulee Elementary
School and Yulee Middle
School, assumes the Hilliard
job.
The other school principals
in the districtwere reappoint-
ed June 25.

VIEWPOINT/PAT KEOGH/FERNANDINA BEACH


City may(

I thank Ron Sapp for his many years of serv-
ice to the city.
In my view, Mr. Sapp casts the choices
facing our community ("Is our 'Fernandina
For Sale'?" on July 1)) as a false dilemma. It's
either about quality of life or economics.
Having presented our future in terms of the
two choices, he defines the future as one
where the more potent political force will pre-
vail.
So if you are one of those quality of life folks
like him you must make your views known to
elected leaders by calling, e-mailing, attending
public meetings and getting involved politically.
He sees the complex challenges facing the
future of the town solely in public and political
terms and the most potent will prevail. It's
about two choices and it's about conflict.
Everyone in Fernandina wants the same
things. We all want our citizens to have the
opportunity to lead healthy, happy, productive
and prosperous lives. I referred to Mr. Sapp's
perspective as a false dilemma because I see
the choices facing the community not as two
but as something more likely approaching
infinity. But when you think of the choices as
only two, the tools you have are limited, and in
Mr. Sapp's view the single tool is political con-
flict. It's one of those "if the only tool you have
is a hammer then all your challenges are nails."
The city of Fernandina Beach is all about
opportunities. We have an undeveloped water-
front, a decaying gateway on Eighth Street, a
dormant commercial core in our historic down-
town and a generally languishing real estate
market. You can see all of those things as prob-
lems or enormous opportunities and chal-
lenges. As interesting as the past of
Fernandina may be, the future could be down-
right exciting.

lE" very book on leadership
S'* -l- and management says funda-
mentally the same thing. The
. | first chapter tells you to sur-
.. round yourself with the best
.2 . talent available and the next
300 pages tell you to incentive
those people and then work
with them to create the best
Ke solutions. That's what we
Keogh . need to do. We need to
attract the best development
talent in the market and work with them to cap-
ture the value of our community's assets for
the community. There has not been a better
time in the past 50 years. Development oppor-
tunities are sorely limited and the best develop-
ers are available to work with public sector
partners to address opportunities like ours.
But the best talent, even in these times, can be
selective. The best developer partners will
search out the best prospective public part-
ners.
Despite the attractiveness of our opportuni-
ties the history of our city would not make us a
hot prospect as a public partner. Take just one
recent experience, and the following perspec-
tive is mine with no discussion with the named
developer. It is the local perception that the
Lane Co. has postponed its project on our
waterfront because of the collapse of the real
estate market. And that's true. What is not said
is that the city put Lane through over two years
of enormously expensive planning and regula-
tory reviews. My memory is that they worked
with city officials for over two years and likely
spent over a million dollars on developing and
advocating their plans. Money and talent are
fully mobile today and they will go where their
value is appreciated and respected. The experi-


ence with Lane does not reflect well on us as a
prospective public partner.
To attract a good private partner you need
to be a good public partner. A good public part-
ner is one'that encourages all ideas, acts
responsibly and does whatever is necessary to
give his private partner the best opportunities �
to succeed. A good public partner does not
learn on his private partner's nickel, he enga-
ges advisors and counsel that are experienced
and successful to represent the city's interest.
The private sector on our island is creative.
Individuals created our B&B industry from
dilapidated buildings, local folks took a city
street and made it into a vibrant farmer's mar-
ket, our terrific downtown restaurants were
created by entrepreneurs, the festival calendar
is a success through the efforts of local citi-
zens, world-class events like the Concours
d'Elegance are the work of creative individuals.
All those people are developers and are these
experiences about economics? Of course they
are, because they would not be sustainable
without sound financial. Do they enhance our
quality of life? You bet.
So the models are there and they are about
reliance on individuals and the private sector.
It's about attracting and nurturing talent. Its
tools are ideas, incentives, cooperation, collabo-
ration and private business models. There's no
place for conflict except among ideas and poli-
tics and governance should be more about sup-
porting private initiative and less about direct-
ing, managing and regulating it.
When the choices are two as in Mr. Sapp's
world, the tools are simple. When the choices
are infinite as they are for each of our local
opportunities, then you need the best market
talent to design the best tool for each opportu-
nity.

the county shelter is trying to do the

back!
The county government has
proven they have not a clue what to do
with what has become some kind of
political football (more like a game of
"keep away" or "hot potato").
Revenues are down for the county, so
funding is at a low. In the meantime the
animals and the.people brave enough
to work at the shelter caring for them
are the ones suffering. Add to this a
true difficulty in attracting volunteer
support and you can see the shelter
staff is truly challenged.
Government is rarely the most effi-
cient delivery system of any services.
We, the people, are the best equipped
to make things happen and in "real
time"! Let's do this for our county res-
cues.
The shelter desperately needs vol-
unteers to walk, train, wash, animals.


And if it is not possible to do any-
thing else at the moment, please add
them to your personal prayers or med-
itations and any prayer lists that you
might be involved with. Thank you!

Waiting game
On the night of July 5 at 10 p.m. my
fiancee and her mother went to Baptist
Medical Center Nassau's emergency
room to get some treatment. On
arrival the ER had a few people in
there but was not packed. They wait-
ed in the waiting room until 2 a.m.
While waiting they had notified a nurse
that she was having an anxiety attack
and the nurse went on to say there
was nothing she could do; there were
no rooms available. Understandable
no room, but the nurse never even
went over to ask if she was OK or any-
thing. I think that was kind of disre-
spectful.
While my fiancee was talking to
the nurse telling her about her moth-
er having an attack the nurse was busy
texting on her cell phone. (Aren't there


signs all over to turn off cell phones
because they interfere with patient
electrical monitoring equipment?)
Also, there were multiple people who
came in after they did and got to go
back to a room (after the nurse said
there were none) beforehand. When'
they did finally did get to go back to
the room it was 2 a.m. and they sat
there till 3:30 a.m. before a nurse came
in the room to even see why they were
there visiting the ER.
Finally the doctor came after they
were about to check out and didn't do
any tests, just gave her a shot for pain
and gave some prescriptions to get
-filled. I personally think that was very
unprofessional. I feel like every time
we go to the ER it is like playing a
waiting game and not getting adequate
service from the "professionals." I am
writing this so that people will know
always be careful when going to the
ER, you never know if you are going to


play a waiting game or if you are going
to get the.help that you are looking for.

Are we so dumb?
Media pundits and academics who
thrive over the alleged "dumbing
down" of America theme are certainly
being fed an arsenal of misleading
material in the current "debate" over
health care. It's all a "no-brainer"
H.L. Mencken once stated that
S"nobody ever lost money in underes-
timating the intelligence of the
American voter." Are we back in a time-
warp here?
As Dr. Tom Washburn pointed out
in the July 8 News-Leader, the USA is
the only, repeat only, industrialized
nation in the world that has- proven
itself both incapable, and unwilling, to
provide a universal health care pro-


gram for its citizens. All Americans,
including self-centered medical prac-
titioners, might be urged to take a few
moments to seriously ponder this.
Medicare, for instance, is a volun-
tary insurance program to which those
who opt for coverage pay monthly
health insurance premiums, and I don't
see anybody opting out. If we elderly
folk did not have Medicare coverage,
I wonder what concerns, and financial
strains, our children might bear.
Personally, I put health care in
America on a par with our national
defense priority. We can't have one
without the other.
The TV commercials I have seen
attacking, and distorting, a proposed
similar, more inclusive, universal health
care program are both insidious, and
seemingly criminal, in intent. Why are
American voters so "dumbed down"?

Worship for false idols leads us

S . . " t's in our DNA; this desire to worship; to

instead of more than 60 percent of airtime, no
doubt the public interest would have been far
more restrained. After all, up until his recently
announced comeback tour, Jackson had virtu-
ally disappeared from public view - trying to
avoid the "wacko Jacko" image portrayed by
the very media now eulogizing him in order to
jack up their ratings (pun intended).
We humans often respond to our innate
worship wiring in strange ways, choosing less
than choice role models. It is one thing to
enjoy a performance. It is quite another to
prostrate one's self before the performer, par-
ticularly if the performer is more tragic than
triumphant. Michael Jackson's multiple trans-
formations seemed to be strong evidence of a
man who disliked the face in his mirror, no
matter how many times he had it altered.

Big beetle a rare

Q I found the largest bee-
S.tle I have ever seen.
Could it possibly be from one
of the Caribbean countries? I
found it on one of the tropical
plants that comes from a
warmer climate. CB
A .Actually, I have dis-
-.cussed this beetle in a
previous column but the '
photo I used was of a female,
which had no horns. Your The Eastern Hercules 1
beetle was a male with a set appeal to predators su<
of "C" shaped horns. tipedes.
Since he is such a beauti-
ful beetle, with unusual


horns, I thought I would
share a photo of him with
everyone. The large beetle is
the Eastern Hercules beetle,
Dynastes tityus. The adults
are beige or
yellow-green
in color.
Some have
-- " - mottled spot-
ting on the
outer .
forewings,
. called elytra,
while others
GARDEN have no
TALg spots at all.
The
' ' grubs spend
Becky]ordi six months
to one year
feeding underground on
decaying matter typically
found in forest areas. Eastern
Hercules beetle grubs can
grow up to 4 1/2 inches long,
whereas the adults reach
only 2 1/2 inches. Because of
their large size, these grubs
are often sought after by a
variety of predators such as
raccoons, skunks, centipedes
and spiders. Even the eggs
are preyed upon by mites and
fly maggots. All of these
adversaries keep the popula-
tion to small numbers, which
is probably why so few of us
see them.
The horns on the males
are used to vie for a mating
opportunity with a female.
Generally, no deaths occur
but one male beetle must ulti-
mately yield. If you see one of
these adult beetles count
yourself lucky. In all my time
searching for insects, I have
yet to come across one.
There is little reason to reach
for an insecticide as they sel-
donm cause severe damage to
any of our landscape plants.
Q I an tired of replacing
.the strip of lawn
between the sidewalk and the
road. If I try to water it prop-
erly so much water ends up
on the road and the sidewalk
and then down the storm
drain that I find it discourag-
ing. Now I have to replace it
again. Can you give me some
other ideas that might be
acceptable to my homeowner


association?
A .We all know how frus-
.trating it must be to
keep those small patches of
grass healthy without being
wasteful of water and we
appreciate your interest in
alternatives.
Because of the difficulty
and wastefulness of these
small strips your HOA should
be willing to consider some
other choices. If you have full
sun at this location then you
might consider using peren-
nial peanut, Asiatic jasmine,
Powderpuff vine or Beach
sunflower.
Perennial peanut, Arachis
glabrata, Benth, spreads by
underground rhizomes but
does not produce seeds,
which means it will not be
carried to wildlife areas by
wind or birds, Irrigation will
be needed to get the plants
established but afterward,
normal rainfall should be suf-
ficient. It is currently growing
at the UF/IFAS Nassau
County Extension satellite
office in Yulee so take time to
come by and see it.
Perennial peanut can be
planted any time of year.
Asiatic jasmine, Trachelo-
spermum asiaticum, is a fast
growing, evergreen, creeping
vine that should completely
cover the area within two
years and should be planted
on 18-inch centers. It can eas-
ily be edged to keep it in
check. It is growing in the
Nassau County
Demonstration garden at the
James S. Page Governmental
Complex in Yulee if you wish
to see its growth habit
Powderpuff or Mimosa
vine, Mimosa strigillosa, is
one of three common native
wildflower mimosa vines.
Powderpuff is the one most
commonly produced for land-
scapes as it spreads quickly.
In a 200- to 300-square-foot
area only four or five 4-inch
pots are needed to cover the
area sufficiently.
Beach sunflower, Helian-
thus debilis, is a native plant
that grows from 2-4 feet tall,
can live in any type of soil and
is salt and drought tolerant.

beetle is a rare sight given its
ch as raccoons, skunks and cen-


The best time of year to plant
it is between May and July.
For those of you living near
the coastal areas, Beach sun-
flower is an excellent choice.
These are all attractive
and easy to maintain plant
choices that should be con-
sidered for those common
areas in both commercial and
residential sites.
Q .I have heard about a
.new variety of
hydrangea that is supposedly
quite different from the nor-
mal hydrangea that produces
large rounded flower heads. I
am told they come in a larger
variety of colors. What can
you tell me about these
hydrangeas? MM
A Hydrangea plants will
Sdo extremely well here
but I would plant them in
areas where they will be pro-
tected from direct, summer
afternoon sun. Morning sun
will suit them well.
Lace cap hydrangea,
Hydrangea macrophylla, is
the same genus species as
the mop heads. The lace cap
hydrangea get their name
from the structure of the
flowers which have center,
small, bud-like structures
surrounded by large, open
individual hydrangea flowers.
Not long ago I was asked
why "Lady in Red," which is a
current popular hydrangea
cultivar, had pink flowers and
not red flowers. She is called
"Lady in Red" because the
flower petioles, or stems, are
red.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Several dozen tennis players
packed City Hall Tuesday evening in
support of coach Lanny Kalpin, who
was recently informed that his con-
tract will be going out to bid. Kalpin
offers tennis lessons at the Central
Park tennis courts for all ages, plus
tennis camps.
Dressed in tennis attire and car-
rying signs and tennis rackets, sup-
porters told city commissioners of
their undying support for Kalpin's
teaching techniques and their satis-
faction with his many programs in
Central Park.
"Lanny has the right attitude, per-
sonality and skills," Paul Griffin told
city commissioners. "You've got a
problem if you get another coach ...
people are very happy with his serv-
ice.",
Michael Graham, who said he has
been taking lessons since 2007, said
Kalpin's coaching was "the best thing
that's ever happened to me."
"Why would someone submit a pro-
posal if someone is doing an out-
standing job?" asked Graham. "You
will not find someone to replace him."
Jane Scanlan said Kalpin is "unpar-
alleled in his ability" and "excellent
beyond excellent."
"You do not take a contract and put
it up for bid," added Scanlan. "You are
picking on one person, from our per-
spective. This man is great, the epit-
ome of what this city needs to have...,
let him continue to motivate children
and adults."
"The city manager said we have to
give other people the chance (to be
tennis pro)," said Betsy Widnes, a
county resident who organized the
protesL "Something does not smell
right here ... the city manager did not
have a clue as to how valuable Lanny
Kalpin is. Now you know."
Kalpin, who has been a profes-
sional tennis coach for many years,
says he approached the city in 2005
about offering tennis programs for
residents because nobody else was
doing it. As with all other instructors
for the city, Kalpin keeps 80 percent of
the proceeds, while the rest goes to
the city. The city received about
$15,000 from Kalpin's tennis programs
last year.
Kalpin said he heard about a month
ago that City Manager Michael
Czymbor was going to put his job out
to bid, but says at the time he didn't
believe it. He says he does not know
what prompted the city to, suddenly
ask for bid proposals for tennis instruc-
tor.
'"They have never done this to
instructors in the (Atlantic Avenue)
rec center for 10 years," said Kalpin.,
"They have never done this to any-
body, but they are doing it to me."

'Pirate' firm airs programs


on city's TV channel 29
MICHAEL PARNELL - -.....
News-Leader


Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers will consider on July 21 a new
policy for programming on the city's
television channel, more than three
weeks after some new programs
were first broadcast.
Pirate Communications, a private
commercial enterprise that includes
SearchAmelia.TV, began, broadcast-
ing four hours of programming on
Comcast Channel 29 on June 29.
According to its website,
SearchAmelia.TV will expand to six
hours by Aug. 1 and undertake "a
full 24-hour programming by the end
of the year."
Lawrence Mackie of Pirate
Communications approached the city
in April about providing program-
ming to the city. Mackie is
Commissioner Eric Childers' broth-
er-in-law. Both Mackie and Childers
are members of the Fernandina
Pirates Club.
Some programming is local, such
as an hour-long program "Live from
the Peck Center: Amelia Arts


A city commissioner's brother-in-law
is producing programs for the city
TVchannel although the city has yet
to approve a policy for programming.


Academy Spring Recitals."
Some is not, such as "Blistur in
Concert," where the Jacksonville
band was taped on St. Maarten's
Island, where Pirate Communications
also has an office. Blistur played at
Mackie's 50th birthday party.
Some programs contain what
could be construed as advertising or
marketing. Program on The Florida
House Inn, for example, included
video of the owner giving a tour of the
business. Another features local real
estate agent Nick Deonas, a former
county commissioner and city fire-
fighter, chatting with his son, Jamie,
who runs the family boat business,
about fishing.and boating. Nick and
Jamie Deonas contribute local news
and items on real estate and boating


to Search Amelia News, which is part
of the firm's website.
City Manager Michael Czymbor
said the company approached the
city. "They made a proposal based
on our lack of programming," he said.
There is no contract with the pri-
vate firm, and there was no bidding
process, Czymbor said.
According to an April 24 letter
from Mackie to the city, representa-
tives of Search Amelia met with
Information Technology Director
Mike Rooney about a one-hour show
called "What's Up Amelia?" The let-
ter said the show would be produced
for the city at no charge but the com-

MICHAEL PARNELL

Community Newspapers
There will be at least two new prin-
cipals at Nassau County high schools
this fall, including Yulee High School,
and a new principal at Yulee Middle
School.
DeArmas Graham, assistant prin-
cipal at Yulee High since it opened in
fall 2006, has been recommended by
schools Superintendent John Ruis to
become principal at YHS. The Nassau
County School Board was to vote on
his appointmeAt Thursday night.
Graham would replace the school's
only principal thus .
far, Diane Romon,
who was promoted.
to an administrative
position. Natasha
Drake, a teacher at
Hilliard Middle- "
Senior High School,
was recommended I
to become the assist Graham
tant principal at
Yulee High.
Romon and Laurie Kepner, former
principal at Atlantic Elementary
School, have newly created adminis-
trative jobs. Romon will be program
compliance manager for secondary
schools and Kepner program compli-
ance manager for elementary schools.
Kepner lost her job at Atlantic
Elementary after that school was
closed this spring with its students
moving to other Fernandina Beach
elementary schools.
"Both (Romon and Kepner) have
been very successful in leading their
schools to outstanding performance
levels," Ruis said Thursday in dis-
cussing their promotions. The new
positions are a response to new state
rules and the school district's efforts
to improve performance by certain
students, he said.
The federal No Child Left Behind
act applies criteria for "adequate year-
ly progress" to specific subgroups of
students, such as African-Americans,
Hispanics, Native Americans and var-
ious disadvantaged groups.
Working with school administra-
tors and teachers, Romon and Kepner
will "target those kids in the subgroups
and monitor their progress and assist

FLORIDA - An exercise program that
burns a lot of calories reduced cardiac
risk factors better than standard cardiac
rehabilitation in overweight coronary
patients, researchers report in
Circulation: Journal of the American
Heart Association.
"The higher-caloric exercise, consist-
ing of almost daily long-distance walking,
resulted in double the weight loss and a
greater fat mass loss than standard car-
diac rehabilitation exercise," said Philip
A. Ades, M.D., lead author of the study
and professor of medicine and director of
cardiac rehabilitation and prevention at
the University of Vermont College of
Medicine in Burlington, Vt. "And proba-
bly most importantly, these patients
improved their insulin sensitivity to a
greater degree."
The high-calorie expenditure regime
was not more intensive than rehabilita-
tion, but longer duration at lower intensi-
ty on more days.
In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers
randomized 74 overweight cardiac reha-
bilitation patients (average age 64, 20 per-
cent women) to either a high-caloric
expenditure exercise regimen intended

, py burning 700 to 800
calories weekly.
After five months,
compared to the
group doing tradition-
al rehabilitation, patients in the high-calo-
rie-burning group had:
* significantly greater improvement in
10 heart risk factors, including insulin
sensitivity (a hallmark of the metabolic
syndrome), total cholesterol and the total
cholesterol/good cholesterol ratio, blood
pressure, and cardio-respiratory fitness;
and
* greater average reduction in weight
(18 vs. 8 pounds), body fat, (13 vs. 6
pounds) and waistlines (2.7 vs. 2 inches).
Researchers said all of these changes
were statistically significant.
"Cardiac rehab has essentially
remained the same since the 1970s
because it has a mortality benefit," Ades
said. "But it doesn't burn many calories
and things have changed. Eighty percent
of our rehabilitation patients are now
overweight and many of them are becom-


ing diabetic. It's a different time in terms
of what we need to do in cardiac rehab."
Excessive weight increases the risk of
heart attacks and is associated with an
increase in other heart risks factors,
including high cholesterol, hypertension
and diabetes.
High-calorie-expenditure exercise con-
sisted of walking for 45 to 60 minutes a
day at a moderate.pace - a lower speed
than standard therapy - for five to six
days a week. Standard rehabilitation
involved walking, biking or rowing for 25
to 40 minutes at a brisker pace three
times a week.
While standard rehabilitation has ben-
efit, theptigh-calorie-burning exercise
increased the benefit, which is crucial
with the increasing prevalence of obesity,
researchers noted.
The study's message is "walk often
and walk far." However, Ades said cardiac
patients require supervision by medical
staff.
Researchers are following the partici-
pants to determine whether high-calorie
exercise improves the incidence of death
and disability.

TENNIS Continued from 1A
City Attorney Tammi Bach
said after the meeting that,
after looking at Kalpin's con-
tract, she and Finance
Director Patti Clifford sug-
gested to City Manager
Michael Czymbor that they
make Kalpin a part-time
employee. Although Czymbor
seemed to be OK with that,
she said, later he and
Recreation Director Nan Voit
decided to go with the bidding
process, issuing a request for
proposals.
Bach said she believed the
issue began when someone
called City Hall and asked
about the tennis pro's contract,
but also said it is "routine for
the city to (send out for bids)
with independent contrac-
tors."
Bach also noted that the
city.is "not creating any more
full-time positions."
"I don't believe this to be a
headhunt," said Vice Mayor
Eric Childers at the meeting.
"We have to give the per-
ception we are doing due dili-
gence," Childers went on. "If it
gets to the commission level,
I will support (Kalpin). ...
please believe it, it's not a
witch hunt. As far as this com-
missioner, we're not hiring
anybody. I think (the city man-
ager) is doing the right thing
... just take a deep breath, it'll
be over soon."
"I see no chance of your
being replaced," he told
Kalpin.
Commissioner Jeff Bunch
said he knew nothing of the
tennis pro's contract going out
to bid, but added that "if it gets
to (commissioner) level, we'll
look at it, but right now it's
not at our level."
Czymbor told the crowd
that their support of Kalpin
was "a testament to the impact
he had in your 'lives. ...
Hopefully, you can give him a
recommendation."
"What we have a fiscal

responsibility to do is provide
the best value to our citizens,"
Czymbor went on. "(We want
to) give everyone who's
uniquely qualified the chance
to present a proposal to the
� city ... we routinely do this for
all our goods and services."
However, Widnes retorted
that her understanding was
that other city positions have
not been similarly put out to
bid.
But, said Childers, "I'm
unaware of too many (city
workers) that are independ-
ent out there. The tennis pro
is not a non-gratis job. It does-
n't last forever."
"I can assure you we will be
talking about this after the
meeting," Mayor Susan Steger
told residents at the meeting.
Steger also noted that the city
had already received four bid
proposals for Kalpin's job.
According to Kalpin,
Czymbor never called him to
discuss the matter, and he
,says city commissioners only
found out about it after he con-
tacted state Rep. Janet Adkins'
Communications Director
Amanda Young, who contact-
ed Childers. "(Young) said it
was a major slap in the face,"
says Kalpin.
Czymbor said after the
meeting that proposal
requests for city contractors
are done "on a reasonable
basis," but also said that there
is no set schedule for such
proposals. He added that the
city is considering coming up
with a policy for bid contracts
and will soon be "looking at
all Parks & Recreation inde-
pendent contractors."
"I don't like the way it was
handled," says Kalpin. "The
city commissioners said,
'Lanny, don't take it personal-
ly.' But how can I not take it
personally?"
Czymbor said the matter
will probably come before city
commissioners for delibera-
tion some time in August.

City pays more


for legal work


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
The city will pay local attor-
ney Clinch Kavanaugh an
extra $7,400 to do additional
legal work for a downtown
waterfront project.
City commissioners
authorized Kavanaugh last
January to write a title opinion
on Front Street for a fee "not
to exceed $18,500." The title
work was necessary for the
city to move forward with its
infrastructure improvements
for the revitalization of the
waterfront.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor has since authorized
the additional payment, and
that was questioned Tuesday
night by Commissioner
Jeffrey Bunch.
'These are two different
scopes of work," replied City
Attorney Tammi Bach, in
explaining the extra cost.
"One was a title search for
Front Street. The other is
issues along Front Street that
need to be cleared up."
Kavanaugh said afterward
he presented his title opinion
to the city in March. One
important detail he discovered
was that the city does not own
South Front Street between
Centre and Ash streets. That
portion, he said, is owned by
CSX railroad.
"We know clearly we
don't own between Centre
and Ash streets," said Kava-
naugh.
Kavanaugh said the addi-
tional work he is doing for the
city includes "getting the title
problems cleared up."
Bach also said there was
"ambiguities and confusion"
about who owns all of North
Front Street, and questions
about who owns the property
on the east side of Front


Street.
Bach added that, although
legal services do not go out
for bid, any contract over
$15,000 must go before city
commissioners for approval.
Kavanaugh, she said, did
another "not to exceed" pro-
posal for the $7,400.
CSX, said Kavanaugh, has
been "unbelievably respon-
sive",to the project, and also
good about providing historic
records to the city. According
to Kavanaugh, the railroad
had records and ordinances
that even the city didn't have,
stored in "huge warehouses."
CSX, he said, currently has a
"very detailed easement" that
allows the city to use the prop-
erty.
Kavanaugh said he,
believes the title problems
can be resolved out of
court.
Property title searches are
traditionally done to deter-
mine who actually owns the
property, and if there are any.
liens against it. Searching
involves tracking ownership
through land and legal
records. This search, said
Kavanaugh, was particularly
complex because of the area's
long history, starting with
Spanish land grants and also
involving Florida Railroad
founder David Yulee. He said
he also found that some land
was replatted but not record-
ed, and that Front Street was
at one time marshland that
was later filled in. He also
found some legal property
descriptions that were not cor-
rect.
Front Street is part of the
city's Community Redevelop-
ment Area, an area designated,
as "blighted" that is project-
ed to receive future tax gains
after improvements.

The programming, which
was to begin with the Isle of
Eight Flags Shrimp Festival in
May, would continue with fea-
tures about various city depart-
ments. Subsequent city docu-
ments do not indicate why that
programming schedule was not
implemented or what plans may
be for the future.
Czymbor first broached the
need for a new city TV policy to
the commission in January
2008, but has not brought a pol-
icy back for review since. He
told the commission this spring,
however, that he would propose
such a policy.
Czymbor said he plans to
propose "a comprehensive use
policy" for a "public, education-
al and government," or PEG,
television channel. That would
be distinct from unfettered pub-
lic access television in which
citizens may submit content
without censorship.
"We control the content"
under a PEG policy, the city
manager said. "There will be
restrictions."
He has viewed some of the
new content on channel 29,
Czymbor said (he said he
enjoyed "Spotlight on the 27th
Kingfish Champions
Tournament"), but Rooney is
screening the programs.
Czymbor said he plans to
establish an advisory board to
help the city oversee the TV
programming and policies.
There could be paid pro-
gramming on the channel,

allow any organization, no mat-
ter how controversial, to run
programs on the channel.
Czymbor said then that citi-
zens who want to broadcast-
their own programs on the pub-
lic access channel could bring
their tapes or discs to City Hall
for approval. The recording
would then be given to the
information technology depart-
ment and put into an available

City Attorney Tammi Bach
said last year that PEG policies
are standard for municipalities
that want to exclude religious,
political and commercial broad-
casts from their public access
stations. Bach also said that
without a regulatory policy,
cities cannot by law regulate
,content unless it is obscene or

'Drop Your Reins' helps


build children's esteem lli


Danielle Herb. 15, was
given the label of ADHD at age
5. Some common traits of chil-
dren labeled as ADHD are low
self-esteem, shyness, inability
to communicate, being bullied,
misunderstood for their gifts,
never feeling like they fit in,
poor grades and more.
Danielle is on a mission to
help other children and par-
ents understand there is anoth-
er way that will lift their chil-
dren to success and build upon
their strengths instead of cap-
italizing on their perceived
weaknesses.
Along with her mother,
Marianne St. Clair, Danielle
has developed The Drop Your
Reins Experience to give chil-
dren and parents new skills to
overcome their fears, ways to
manage their energy on
demand, raise their confidence
and self-esteem so when they


return to school they are on a
new path of success.
Local ADHD and autistic
children had the opportunity
earlier this summer to partici-
pate in Danielle's program
involving horses. The horse
mirrors you and assists
you in "seeing the real you
through the horse's view," she
said.
"I was so impressed by
Danielle Herb and the 'Drop
Your Reins' experience," said
Nassau County Commissioner
Stacy Johnson. "She was
poised, eloquent and inspiring.
I was amazed at how the chil-
dren gained self-confidence
and self-respect after just a few
minutes of training with her.
She is a great young leader and
I look forward to working with
her in the future."
Debbie Manser. owner of
Cheers Horse Ranch, is host-


ing clinics this summer at her
ranch in Yulee on "Natural
Horsemanship."
The Drop Your Reins
Experience focuses on the
needs of ADHD and autistic
children ages 4-18 with aca-
demic and/or social difficul-
ties. Through fun experiential
equine activities, children build
upon their natural strengths to
enhance communication, prob-
lem-solving and social skills
and increase self-confidence in
a safe. educational and recre-
ational atmosphere.
Danielle and her mother
will offer a clinic this Saturday
from 9 a.m. to noon at Cheers
Ranch, 96841 Blackrock Road.
Space is limited and other clin-
ics are planned.

WNHS contests'D'


KATHIE COLGROVE
Community Newspaper
West Nassau High School's
grade may go from a "D" to a
"C," pending approval of an
appeal.
"We reviewed our data and
found an error in the 11th
grade and 12th grade retake
column, which would ultimate-
ly give us the 10-point bonus
needed to earn a 'C' letter
grade," said Cynthia Grooms,
WNHS assistant principal, on
Monday. "We're really hoping
the outcome will be a positive
one." "
Superintendent John Ruis
said the error was that one stu-'
dent's FCAT score was used
when an ACT score should
have been used instead. FCAT
rules allow for SAT and ACT


passing test scores to be sub-
stituted when a child fails the
FCAT, but the school's data did
not reflect that change, despite
school officials having made
that change during a state-
allowed window of time earlier
in the school year.
Grooms said Principal Ron
Booker discovered the error
and submitted a letter of appeal
July 1 to Mary Duffy, coordi-
nator of student services with
the Nassau County School
District.
"(Duffy) then reviewed the
data and found grounds for an
appeal, based on the Florida
Department of Education's
omission of student data and
data miscalculations," Grooms
said.
Schools wishing to appeal
grades have 30 days from June


19 to submit a request.
However, Grooms said she
is not certain how long it will
take to get approval, if at all.
Booker came under fire for
the school's "D "grade.at a
Nassau County School Board
meeting June 25.
Because of the grade,
Booker's name was removed
from a consent agenda that
included other principals' con-
tracts following an objection
raised by Vice Chair Kathy
Burns.
During the meeting, Ruis
said the school was one point
from a "B," but the lower quar-
tile's scores play a significant
role in, the grading, and without
significant improvement in that
quartile, the school's grade gets
penalized a letter.
Though Ruis expressed dis-


wraae

appointment in West Nassau's
school grade, he did support
Booker's leadership at the
school. "... I do feel the leader-
ship was being provided there
as providing a sound basis for
them to improve and get back
on track," he said.
However, Burns said she
could not vote to approve
Booker's reappointment with
the "lack of consistency" and
WNHS's school grade.
The school's grade has fluc-
tuated from B-D since Booker's
tenure began in 2005. Ruis said
the issue of Booker's contract
would be readdressed at,
Thursday's school board meet-
ing, as he expects to have a full
board present. Board member
Jim Adams was absent from the
last meeting because he was
out of town, Ruis said.


Online classes save schools money


University ofFlorida
GAINESVILLE - New
research at the University of
Florida predicts more public
school students in kindergarten
through 12th grade will take
classes online, have longer
school days and more of them
in the next decade. Academic
performance should improve
and schools could save money.
While distance education
over the Internet is already
widespread at colleges and uni-
versities, UF educational tech-
nology researchers are offer-
ing some of the first hard
evidence documenting the
potential cost-savings of virtual
schooling in K-12 schools.
"Policymakers and educa-
tors have proposed expanding
learning time in elementary
through high school grades as
a way to improve students' aca-
demic performance, but online
coursework hasn't been on
their radar. This should change
as we make school and school
district leaders more aware of
the potential cost savings that
virtual schooling offers," said
Catherine Cavanaugh, associ-
ate professor at the University
of Florida's College of
Education. "Over the next
decade, we expect an explosion
in the use of virtual schooling
as 0 seamless synthesis
between the traditional class-
room and online learning."
Based on a 2008 survey of
20 virtual schools in 14 states,
UF researchers found that the


average yearly cost of online
learning per full-time pupil was
about $4,300. This compared
with a national average cost per
pupil of more than $9,100 for a
traditional public school in 2006
(the most recent year in which
such data was available). Their
cost estimates covered course
development and teaching and
administrative and technical
expenses.
"Online programs have little
or no cost for instructional facil-
ities, transportation and related
staff." Cavanaugh said. "The
value of distance education also
increases when considering the
broad range of available online
courses."
She said investing in virtual
education could allow schools
to provide instruction before,


during and after school - in.
essence, lengthening the
school day and school year -
without sinking millions of dol-
lars into new buildings, addi-
tional personnel, professional
development and other operat-
ing costs. Such school reform
measures may not be popular
with the kids, but America's
education system is falling
behind our competitors abroad.


Simply put, students in other
developed nations are spend-
ing more time in school and
learning more than our kids
do.
"Time is one of the most
valuable resources for learn-
ing. Even a few days' difference
in learning time can determine
whether a school makes ade-
quate yearly progress,"
Cavanaugh said.

FRIDAY. July 10, 2009 NEWS News-Leader


"Kilroy was here," "Kilroy says" and "Kilroy
wants to know" were all popular adages familiar
to those of the World War II, Korean War and
Vietnam War era. With a bit of military humor
I'll explain how the Kilroy bug suckered me
into researching this infamous character that
graces the wall of the World War II Memorial in
',.1iir,,l.l, . D .C .
During a visit to by my birthplace my moth-
er sent me on a mission to seek out old newspa-
per accounts in historical
archives of birth, wedding
and obituary announcements
of long lost relatives.
Zb9 With 22 years of military
service I figured the only
way to approach this endeav-
or was to implement those
instilled disciplines learned
through numerous tours of
VETERAN'S duty with the Air Force. My
CORNER Commander-in-Chief (Mom)
had spoken. Her duty bound,
but limited troop source
Debbie (me) then set out to fulfill
Walsh this important mission objec-
tive. That's when my "mili-
tary mode" kicked in. I was sure my dedication,
loyalty, tenacity and commitment would see me
through this mission and hopefully acquire suc-
cessful results.
My first stop was to the local public library,
which boasted tons of genealogy resources.
After several days, I had scanned what seemed
like hundreds of rolls of microfiche and
throughout the process one common news col-


Kilroy was here


umn kept appearing from the early 1940s to the
mid-1950s - "Kilroy Says."
It appeared this person named Kilroy
recounted the activities of the hometown youth
while they served in the armed forces. It
reported their induction into service, changes
in duty assignments, promotions, when they
were home on furlough and injuries incurred
during battle. Unfortunately, it also covered
their deaths during their harrowing fight for
our country.
In an August 1952 "Kilroy Says" column it
recapped the Korean War injury of a hometown
son who was unmarried at the time and per-
forming a three-year stint in the Navy. That per-
son was my Dad. Needless to say, I was ecstatic
to find this news clipping and it has since been
ensconced in our family memorabilia records.
At this juncture, my immediate Commander-in-
Chief announced the family mission was com-
plete.
Then over the next month as I started
researching other information for other articles
there it was again, "Kilroy was here." Only this
time, the old adage included a picture of a
famous caricature. Then it clicked!
I, too, had seen the graffiti of the little bald-
headed man with the distinctive Jimmy Durante
nose, but until then I'd never really wondered of
its origin. I was now on a new mission - to find
out just exactly "who was Kilroy?"


c e
-~ y1)Th


My first web search hit referred to the TV
series "M*A*S*H" where Hawkeye Pierce
(Alan Alda) was seen scribbling "Kilroy" on a
dirty window of an Army transport bus as his
cohort in schemes peeped over the lowered
bus window imitating the bald-headed man in
the Kilroy sketch.
Supposedly, the graffiti is located on other
significant and difficult-to-reach places through-
out the world: the torch of the Statue of Liberty,
the Marco Polo Bridge in China, a high girder
of the George Washington Bridge in New York,
the peak of Mt. Everest and the underside of
the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. It's also allegedly
been scribbled in the dust on the Moon,
inscribed in World War II pillboxes scattered
around Germany and sporadically decorates
the sewers of Paris.
Its origins are open to speculation. The
same doodle appears in other cultures, but the
character peeping over the wall is named "Foo."
In Great Britain it was "Chad" while in Chile the
graphic is known as a "sapo," a Spanish/Portu-
guese word meaning toad, indirectly referring
to frogs because of their large protruding eyes.
It is said that Adolf Hitler believed Kilroy
was an American super-spy because the graffiti
kept turning up in secure Nazi installations
where it appeared on captured Allied military
equipment. Others believe Stalin encountered
"Kilroy" after entering an outhouse at the


Potsdam Conference, which sought the terms
of an unconditional surrender for Japan during
World War II. Upon exiting, Stalin asked, "Who
is this Kilroy?"
As military service rivalries go, some insist
the inscription was started by an Army soldier
who was sick of the Air Force bragging they
were always first on the scene. The drawing
then began appearing in absurd places to indi-
cate someone had, in fact, arrived prior to the
Air Force.
One theory identifies the man behind the
signature as James Kilroy, an American ship-
yard inspector. During World War II he claimed
to have used the phrase to mark the rivets on
any ship he had inspected. Since ships were
being sent out to the forces without being paint-
ed, when sealed areas were opened for mainte-
nance, soldiers found the unexplained name
scrawled inside. Thousands of servicemen may
have potentially seen his slogan on the outgo-
ing ships and the ominous scribbling sparks
this legend of Kilroy's beginning.
The phrase and drawing then began appear-
ing everywhere, especially in newly captured
areas or upon U.S. military landing sites. At
later dates, the phrase was found in places no
graffiti artist could have reached, which then
fed to the mythical significance. After all, if
Kilroy could leave his mark there, who knew
where else he could go.
To this day the legacy lives on. "Kilroy was
here" graffiti is rumored to grace road barriers
on main supply routes, inside portable toilets
and on warehouse walls all around Iraq and
Afghanistan.

VIEWPOINT/PAT KEOGH/FERNANDINA BEACH



City may choose bright future


Thank Ron Sapp for his many years of serv-
ice to the city.
In my view, Mr. Sapp casts the choices
facing our community ("Is our 'Fernandina
For Sale'?" on July 1)) as a false dilemma. It's
either about quality of life or economics.
Having presented our future in terms of the
two choices, he defines the future as one
where the more potent political force will pre-
vail.
So if you are one of those quality of life folks
like him you must make your views known to
elected leaders by calling, e-mailing, attending
public meetings and getting involved politically.
He sees the complex challenges facing the
future of the town solely in public and political
terms and the most potent will prevail. It's
about two choices and it's about conflict.
Everyone in Fernandina wants the same
things. We all want our citizens to have the
opportunity to lead healthy, happy, productive
and prosperous lives. I referred to Mr. Sapp's
perspective as a false dilemma because I see
the choices facing the community not as two
but as something more likely approaching
infinity. But when you think of the choices as
only two, the tools you have are limited, and in
Mr. Sapp's view the single tool is political con-
flict. It's one of those "if the only tool you have
is a hammer then all your challenges are nails."
The city of Fernandina Beach is all about
opportunities. We have an undeveloped water-
front, a decaying gateway on Eighth Street, a
dormant commercial core in our historic down-
town and a generally languishing real estate
market. You can see all of those things as prob-
lems or enormous opportunities and chal-
lenges. As interesting as the past of
Fernandina may be, the future could be down-
right exciting.


"..,,.. " Every book on leadership
and management says funda-
I mentally the same thing. The

the community. There has not been a better
time in the past 50 years. Development oppor-
tunities are sorely limited and the best develop-
ers are available to work with public sector
partners to address opportunities like ours.
But the best talent, even in these times, can be
selective. The best developer partners will
search out the best prospective public part-
ners.
Despite the attractiveness of our opportuni-
ties the history of our city would not make us a
hot prospect as a public partner. Take just one
recent experience, and the following perspec-
tive is mine with no discussion with the named
developer. It is the local perception that the
Lane Co. has postponed its project on our
waterfront because of the collapse of the real
estate market. And that's true. What is not said
is that the city put Lane through over two years
of enormously expensive planning and regula-
tory reviews. My memory is that they worked
with city officials for over two years and likely
spent over a million dollars on developing and
advocating their plans. Money and talent are
fully mobile today and they will go where their
value is appreciated and respected. The experi-

While I'm sorry to hear Lanny
Kalpin's job could be at stake
("Racquets high," July 3), as I would be
sorry to hear about anyone's job, I
would like to commend City Manager
Mike Czymbor for taking fiscal respon-.
sibility in seeking cheaper ways to
offer the same programs. And yes, in
a time of a financial budget crunch, Mr.
Czymbor is doing exactly what we
need him to do: squeeze the budget to
make ends meet.
It is pressing business, not a per-
sonal attack on Lanny. Please try to
keep an open mind for all of our deci-
sion makers as they don't want anyone
to lose their job, especially when that
person does a good job. They are just

County animal control
It took me awhile to realize what
our county animal control really needs.
It needs tis! I have supported, and will.
continue to support, the Nassau
Humane Society. It is a wonderful
group and they do great work. But
the county shelter is trying to do the
best possible by our county strays,
surrendered pets, abusive situations
with both hands tied behind their
back!
The county government has
proven they have not a clue what to do
with what has become some kind of
political football (more like a game of
"keep away" or "hot potato").
Revenues are down for the county, so
funding is at a low. In the meantime the
animals and the.people brave enough
to work at the shelter caring for them
are the ones suffering. Add to this a
true difficulty in attracting volunteer
support and you can see the shelter
staff is truly challenged.
Government is rarely the most effi-
cient delivery system of any services.
We, the people, are the best equipped
to make things happen and in "real
time"! Let's do this for our county res-
cues.
The shelter desperately needs vol-
unteers to walk, train, wash, animals.


They need towels, blankets, bed-
spreads, small rugs for bedding. They
need collars, leashes, crates, dog-
houses, dog bowls, dog food, treats,
flea control, toys. Being a county shel-
ter, monetary contributions are a little
complicated but gift cards can be
accepted like for Petco or Wal-Mart.
This plea goes out especially to the
neighbors that live out here in the
county. Nassauville, Oyster Bay, North
Hampton, Amelia National, Yulee Hills,
Meadowfield Bluff are some of the
communities that are closest. Let's get
energized and make a difference.
Everyone has old towels etc to get rid
of. What do you do with your dog's old
leashes, collars, toys? When dog food
is on sale, why not buy-an extra bag
and drop it off? This is the way
Americans truly make a difference
>wheiimeiSre'i..iu ch'l
What about temporarily fostering
an animal whose owner has to sur-
render due to foreclosure/financial
issues but could take the animal back
once back on their feet? So many pos-
sibilities to help if we just think about
it!
And if it is not possible to do any-
thing else at the moment, please add
them to your personal prayers or med-
itations and any prayer lists that you
might be involved with. Thank you!

Waiting game
On the night of July 5 at 10 p.m. my
fiancee and her mother went to Baptist
Medical Center Nassau's emergency
room to get some treatment. On
arrival the ER had a few people in
there but was not packed. They wait-
ed in the waiting room until 2 a.m.
While waiting they had notified a nurse
that she was having an anxiety attack
and the nurse went on to say there
was nothing she could do; there were
no rooms available. Understandable
no room, but the nurse never even
went over to ask if she was OK or any-
thing. I think that was kind of disre-
spectful.
While my fiancee was talking to
the nurse telling her about her moth-
er having an attack the nurse was busy
texting on her cell phone. (Aren't there


*"- "- "" ' ' PAUL ZANETTI/CAGLE CARTOONS AUSIRAIIA


signs all over to turn off cell phones
because they interfere with patient
electrical monitoring equipment?)
Also, there were multiple people who
came in after they did and got to go
back to a room (after the nurse said
there were none) beforehand. When'
they did finally did get to go back to
the room it was 2 a.m. and they sat
there till 3:30 a.m. before a nurse came
in the room to even see why they were
there visiting the ER.
Finally the doctor came after they
were about to check out and didn't do
any tests, just gave her a shot for pain
and gave some prescriptions to get
,filled. I personally think that was very.
unprofessional. I feel like every time
we go to the ER it is like playing a
waiting game and not getting adequate
service from the "professionals." I am
writing this so that people will know
always be careful when going to the
ER, you never know if you are going to


play a waiting game or if you are going
to get the help that you are looking for.

Are we so dumb?
Media pundits and academics who
thrive over the alleged "dumbing
down" of America theme are certainly
being fed an arsenal of misleading
material in the current "debate" over
health care. It's all a "no-brainer"
H.L. Mencken once stated that
"nobody ever lost money in underes-
timating the intelligence of the
American voter." Are we back in a time-
warp here?
As Dr. Tom Washburn pointed out
in the July 8 News-Leader, the USA is
the only, repeat only, industrialized
nation in the world that has. proven
itself both incapable, and unwilling, to
provide a universal health care pro-


gram for its citizens. All Americans,
including self-centered medical prac-
titioners, might be urged to take a few
moments to seriously ponder this.
Medicare, for instance, is a volun-
tary insurance program to which those
who opt for coverage pay monthly
health insurance premiums, and I don't
see anybody opting out. If we elderly
folk did not have Medicare coverage,
I wonder what concerns, and financial
strains, our children might bear.
Personally, I put health care in
America on a par with our national
defense priority. We can't have one
without the other.
The TV commercials I have seen
attacking, and distorting, a proposed
similar, more inclusive, universal health
care program are both insidious, and
seemingly criminal, in intent. Why are
American voters so "dumbed down"?

name drop; the first to rush to a rendezvous
with the famous. It is the communicator's
obsession that creates a public obsession. Had
the networks given Michael Jackson's death
the same amount of time afforded the demise
of Farrah Fawcett or Robert McNamara
instead of more than 60 percent of airtime, no
doubt the public interest would have been far
more restrained. After all, up until his recently
announced comeback tour, Jackson had virtu-
ally disappeared from public view - trying to
avoid the "wacko Jacko" image portrayed by
the very media now eulogizing him in order to
jack up their ratings (pun intended).
We humans often respond to our innate
worship wiring in strange ways, choosing less
than choice role models. It is one thing to
enjoy a performance. It is quite another to
prostrate one's self before the performer, par-
ticularly if the performer is more tragic than
triumphant. Michael Jackson's multiple trans-
formations seemed to be strong evidence of a
man who disliked the face in his mirror, no
matter how many times he had it altered.

ence with Lane does not reflect well on us as a
prospective public partner.
To attract a good private partner you need
to be a good public partner. A good public part-
ner is one'that encourages all ideas, acts
responsibly and does whatever is necessary to
give his private partner the best opportunities
to succeed. A good public partner does not
learn on his private partner's nickel, he enga-
ges advisors and counsel that are experienced
and successful to represent the city's interest.
The private sector on our island is creative.
Individuals created our B&B industry from
dilapidated buildings, local folks took a city
street and made it into a vibrant farmer's mar-
ket, our terrific downtown restaurants were
created by entrepreneurs, the festival calendar
is a success through the efforts of local citi-
zens, world-class events like the Concours
d'Elegance are the work of creative individuals.
All those people are developers and are these
experiences about economics? Of course they
are, because they would not be sustainable
without sound financial. Do they enhance our
quality of life? You bet.
So the models are there and they are about
reliance on individuals and the private sector.
It's about attracting and nurturing talent. Its
tools are ideas, incentives, cooperation, collabo-
ration and private business models. There's no
place for conflict except among ideas and poli-
tics and governance should be more about sup-
porting private initiative and less about direct-
ing, managing and regulating it.
When the choices are two as in Mr. Sapp's
world, the tools are simple. When the choices
are infinite as they are for each of our local
opportunities, then you need the best market
talent to design the best tool for each opportu-
nity.

Home mission celebrates 44 years


I also and my maidens will fast like-
wise; and will I go in unto the King,
which is not according to the law, and if
I perish, I perish, let me perish for there
is work that must be done. I'm going to
see the King.
Home mission of Friendship Baptist
Church celebrated 44 years of service
recently with courageous missionaries
taking a stand for God, believing soon
and very soon we're going to see the
King as their theme song.
God allowed Sis. Coretha Dinkins to
give the history of the ministry as well
as being a faithful member the entire 44
years, the only charter member. There
are others who joined along the way to
help Dinkins carry on the works of the
Lord and it truly takes dedicated
Christians to do home mission.
Sis. Elva Jones gave the message,
"There is a Woman in the Mist." Theme
scripture: Esther 4:16.
Evangelist Clara Stamps ministered
the rededication mission pledge, which
can be used in our everyday work for
the Lord. I am persuaded by the teach-
ing of the blessed Bible, by daily read-


- . . *" ing, meditation and
,... , communion with my
Lord and Savior Jesus
. Christ, to live an
upright Christian life,
to practice His teaching
in dealing with my fel-
low man. To dedicate
my talents and give of
7NOW AND my time, influence and
NOWAND means to teaching or
THEN spreading the Christian
religion at home and
abroad. To win souls
Maybelle through personal serv-
Kirkland ice for Christ, to
encourage and help in
the enlistment of young people in .
Christian work and make my home a
center of Christian light and love. To
these ends, I pledge to devote myself
and seek divine aid and guidance daily,
that I may become a living witness and a
bright and shining light for my Lord.
This pledge can be used daily for all
of us in our walk with the Lord. Sis.
Laura Rhodes is the president and the
Rev. James Payne is pastor.


When the Peck High School class of
1959 celebrated 50 years, they went old
school. Music, caterers and a bus and
what a great time they had. It was men-
tioned that we forgot to tell what bus we
used. Of course, it was Robbins Coach,
Samuel Robbins, owner.
Local classmates are still gathering
together and will continue throughout
the year as other members come home
to visit.
There were also members of the
class celebrating 45-50 years of mar-
riage to each other and there were oth-
ers trying to get a relationship started
with each other. God has a way that's'
mighty sweet.
The family of the late Lonnie Albertie
says thanks for all acts of kindness
shown to them during their bereave-
ment and pray God's continued bless-
ings upon all of you.

RELIGION


An honest prayer from the heart, a changed life


T here I was flat on my back
- the whole thing such a
mystery. If it hadn't been
for the tall green grass
occasionally rubbing against my face
and feet, I would have likely forgot-
ten where I was. It was all so amaz-
ing.
I don't know about you, but as a
teenager I liked looking at stars. I'm
sure that living in Vermont, where
stargazing is incredible, had a lot to
do with my fascination. As I lay on
my back wondering how it all came
into being, I couldn't help but
acknowledge the limitations of my
thinking. How could there be no end
to it all? Just the idea that the stars
and the sky go on forever and ever
was enough to make my mind come
to a screeching halt.


K- T

PULPIT
NOTES

Pastor
Rob Goyette


It was back
then, as a young
curious teenager,
that some of life's
deepest questions
began bubbling up
in my pool of
understanding.
Those questions,
and an active imag-
ination, led me on
some very adven-
turesome journeys.
One thought
always led to anoth-
er - one clue to the
next. And, just


when I would stand at the door of
solving the mysteries of the uni-
verse, it would happen. That
inescapable, seemingly unbreakable


cord attached to the Earth and my
limited understanding, would jerk
me back to the ground. The whole
thing was frustrating to say the least.
Looking back, strangely enough,
I'm grateful for the experience.
That's when I learned to pray. There
was something about reaching the
end of myself that caused me to do
more than just look up at the sky. I
began looking to God. Now I need to
be upfront and tell you, I groped for
answers in a lot of other places
before I finally turned to the Lord.
Actually, I was so confused by all the
religious and non-religious argu-
ments that I almost quit my search.
If it hadn't been for an inner know-
ing that there was something more,
and a loving God who was drawing
me, I'm sure I would have let the


whole thing go.
I'll never forget when my strug-
gle came to an end. With so many
theories and opinions spinning
around in my mind I finally blurted
out a prayer that changed my life for-
ever. "God, if you're real, I've got to
have some help. Do something with
my life." Interestingly enough, it was
just that simple. I hadn't quoted long
passages of scripture or helped a
bunch of old ladies across the street,
I just prayed an honest prayer from
my heart.
It was that honest prayer that
seemed to get God's attention. I tell
you from that moment forward,
supernatural things began happen-
ing for me. And to think, it was so
simple. Situation after situation, cir-
cumstance after circumstance, sud-


denly my life began moving in ways
that only God could orchestrate. I
couldn't deny it. It was as though I
had let go of the steering wheel and
said, "Here God, You drive," and He
took me up on my offer.
That was over 25 years ago. A lot
has changed since then. I have a
beautiful family - an amazing con-
gregation who call me their pastor -
a few gray hairs and, most impor-
tantly, a wonderful relationship with
the guy who hung all the stars in the
sky - Jesus Christ.
"Blessed are they which do
hunger and thirst after righteous-
ness: for they shall be filled."
(Matthew 5:6)
Robert L. Goyette is pastor of
Living Waters World Outreach Center.

Taith at the Movies'
Memorial United Methodist
Church is hosting a film series titled
Faith at the Movies. This is a brand
new series designed to explore
issues of faith through popular
movies. There will be a simultane-
ous movie and program for children,
as well as nursery. All are welcome.
Movies start at 6:30 p.m. in Maxwell
Hall. The lineup includes: tonight,
"The Pursuit of Happyness," July 24,
"Romero" and Aug. 7, "The Ultimate
Gift."
VWhoWas Jesus'
Ever feel like Jesus has been kid-
napped by the Christian Right or the
Secular Left? Saving Jesus is a revo-
lutionary DVD-based small group
exploration of Jesus Christ featuring
modern religious voices of our day.
This 10-week program utilizes guid-
ed discussion and a 20-minute video
segment featuring Marcus Borg,
John Dominic Crossan, Matthew
Fox, Amy-Jill Levine, James Forbes
and a host of others.
Many people find themselves dis-
satisfied with the church today. One
of the reasons might be that so'
many people are asked to enter the
church doors without thinking
through the Bible and faith in the
same way they do other issues and
situations in their lives. Join this

HOME AND GARDEN BRIEFS


are beige or
yellow-green
in color.
Some have
- '"-- mottled spot-
ting on the
outer .
forewings,
. called elytra,
while others
GARDEN have no
TALi( spots at all.
The
grubs spend
Becky jordi six months
to one year
feeding underground on
decaying matter typically
found in forest areas. Eastern
Hercules beetle grubs can
grow up to 4 1/2 inches long,
whereas the adults reach
only 2 1/2 inches. Because of
their large size, these grubs
are often sought after by a
variety of predators such as
raccoons, skunks, centipedes
and spiders. Even the eggs
are preyed upon by mites and
fly maggots. All of these
adversaries keep the popula-
tion to small numbers, which
is probably why so few of us
see them.
The horns on the males
are used to vie for a mating
opportunity with a female.
Generally, no deaths occur
but one male beetle must ulti-'
mately yield. If you see one of
these adult beetles count
yourself lucky. In all my time
searching for insects, I have
yet to come across one.
There is little reason to reach
for an insecticide as they sel-
dom cause severe damage to
any of our landscape plants.
Q. I am tired of replacing
.the strip of lawn
between the sidewalk and the
road. If I try to water it prop-
erly so much water ends up
on the road and the sidewalk
and then down the storm
drain that I find it discourag-
ing. Now I have to replace it
again. Can you give me some
other ideas that might be
acceptable to my homeowner


wasteful of water and we
appreciate your interest in
alternatives.
Because of the difficulty
and wastefulness of these
small strips your HOA should
be willing to consider some
other choices. If you have full
sun at this location then you
might consider using peren-
nial peanut, Asiatic jasmine,
Powderpuff vine or Beach
sunflower.
Perennial peanut, Arachis
glabrata, Benth, spreads by
underground rhizomes but
does not produce seeds,
which means it will not be
carried to wildlife areas by
wind or birds, Irrigation will
be needed to get the plants
established but afterward,
normal rainfall should be suf-
ficient. It is currently growing
at the UF/IFAS Nassau
County Extension satellite
office in Yulee so take time to
come by and see it.
Perennial peanut can be
planted any time of year.
Asiatic jasmine, Trachelo-
spermum asiaticum, is a fast
. growing, evergreen, creeping
vine that should completely
cover the area within two
years and should be planted
on 18-inch centers. It can eas-
ily be edged to keep it in
check. It is growing in the
Nassau County
Demonstration garden at the
James S. Page Governmental
Complex in Yulee if you wish
to see its growth habit.
Powderpuff or Mimosa
vine, Mimosa strigillosa, is
one of three common native
wildflower mimosa vines.
Powderpuff is the one most
commonly produced for land-
scapes as it spreads quickly.
In a 200- to 300-square-foot
area only four or five 4-inch
pots are needed to cover the
area sufficiently.
Beach sunflower, Helian-
thus debilis, is a native plant
that grows from 2-4 feet tall,
can live in any type of soil and
is salt and drought tolerant.


These are all attractive
and easy to maintain plant
choices that should be con-
sidered for those common
areas in both commercial and
residential sites.
Q. I have heard about a
.new variety of
hydrangea that is supposedly
quite different from the nor-
mal hydrangea that produces
large rounded flower heads. I
am told they come in a larger
variety of colors. What can
you tell me about these
hydrangeas? MM
A .Hydrangea plants will
. do extremely well here
but I would plant them in
areas where they will be pro-
tected from direct, summer
afternoon sun. Morning sun
will suit them well.
Lace cap hydrangea,
Hydrangea macrophylla, is
the same genus species as
the mop heads. The lace cap
hydrangea get their name
from the structure of the
flowers which have center,
small, bud-like structures
surrounded by large, open
individual hydrangea flowers.
Not long ago I was asked.
why "Lady in Red," which is a
current popular hydrangea
cultivar, had pink flowers and
not red flowers. She is called
"Lady in Red" because the
flower petioles, or stems, are
red.

I am a Tarheel. Born in North
Carolina and graduated from
Chapel Hill, I took great pride
in watching this year's NCAA
basketball tournament. The
Tarheels were led to the champi-
onship under senior point guard Ty
Lawson. Just last week, Lawson
entered the NBA and landed with
the Denver Nuggets.
Now, if any of you happened to
watch the Nuggets in the NBA play-
offs, you may recall the abundance
of "body art" or tattoos on the play-
ers. Everyone on the Nuggets is
painted. So, it will be interesting to
see how quickly the "unmarked"
Lawson will join his teammates in
inked expression.
Many professional athletes sport
body art. Some, such as Mike
Tyson's facial design, seem some-
what bizarre, while others have a

Tattoos continue to become more
popular with nearly 40 percent of the
population between the ages of 18 to
40 having at least one tattoo and


women making up 65 percent of that
group. With the increase in populari-
ty of tattoos, so does the number of
facilities offering these. With that in
mind, some thoughts towards safety
need to be considered.
Florida state law requires "gener-
al supervision" of tattoo practices be
done under the care of a physician,
ostopath or dentist. That profession-
al does not have to be on site, but is
required to perform a semi-annual
review and inspection of techniques
and verification of equipment sterili-
zation procedures. The supervising
physician is also to provide semi-
annual training in the areas of infec-
tion control, sterilization and emer-
gency procedures.
Professional tattoos are applied
by licensed tattoo artists using a tat-
too machine or "tattoo gun." The
artist should wash his hands and


wear gloves. You should only choose
a studio that is licensed and clean.
Needles are single-use only and are
removed from sterile packaging
before use. Instruments are to be
sterilized after each use with an
autoclave. An autoclave maintains a
temperature of at least 246 degrees
fe- 30 minutes in order to fully steril-
ize the equipment. Autoclaves must
be regularly tested to ensure they

should gladly show you the steriliza-

There are obvious risks involved
in getting a tattoo. The most serious
are life-threatening infections, such
as HIV or hepatitis, from unclean
needles. This is completely prevent-
able if equipment and needles are
clean.
Even in sterile environments,


other infections, such as Staph, may
also develop. This often is the result
of poor aftercare of the tattoo. Your
tattoo artist should discuss with you
the proper care of the freshly-inked
area as well as what to watch for
over the following days. Allergic
reactions to the ink are also occa-
sionally seen.

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FLORIDA


Miles Jaye back for July birthday


For the News-Leader
National recording artist Miles
Jaye returns to Fernandina
Beach for his second perform-
ance on the island at 'The
Biggest July Birthday Party Ever," to be
held July 31 from 6:30-11 p.m. at the
Fernandina Beach Women's Club.
The event is described by organizer
Joyce Jones as "a sizzling summer social
designed to promote fun, social interac-
tion and celebration among mature
adults."
Jaye, who will perform along with
saxophone sensation Allana Southerland
and The Fusion Band of Jacksonville, is a
classically trained violinist and R&B and
contemporary jazz composer.
During his 25-year music career, Jaye
has worked extensively in the continen-
tal United States and Hawaii and interna-
tionally across five continents, perform-
ing in Australia, Burma, Columbia,
England, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan and
Peru. At a young age he had the honor of
performing at the Lincoln Center and
Carnegie Hall. He has since lit up stages
around the world including jazz festivals
in Holland, France and Switzerland.
Jaye is a soulful R&B vocalist and as a
musician is highly proficient on the
piano, flute, guitar, upright string bass,
saxophone, bass guitar and violin. He
easily goes from a cool, sultry serenade
to turning up the heat with his fiery red
hot electric violin.
Jaye adds to his credits being a distin-
guished composer, contemporary jazz
writer, author, columnist and founder
and president of Black Tree Records,


SUIMITEDI)
Composer and R&B recording star
Miles Jaye performs July 31 in
Fernandina Beach.

Inc. He has written and recorded 40 orig-
inal compositions spanning 11 albums
and CDs on which can be heard the
musical talents of jazz giants Nat
Adderley Jr., Dexter Wansel, Roy Ayers,
George Duke and Branford Marsalis.
He has also shared the live perform-
Sance stage with other such notable
artists as Grover Washington Jr., Lee
Ritenour, Waymon Tisdale, CeCe
Winans, Alex Bugnon, Bobby Caldwell,


Chaka Khan, Boney James, Natalie Cole,
Jeffery Osborne, Nancy Wilson, Larry
Coryell, Patti LaBelle and the legendary
B.B. King, just to name a few.
Jaye served five years in the U.S. Air
Force and that spirit of service shows in
his dedication to giving back to his com-
munity and the communities where he
performs. His first visit and performance
on Amelia Island in 2007 was to lend his
support to the fight against domestic vio-
lence and HIV/AIDS in Nassau County
communities.
Now the native New Yorker will bring
his own style of "Cool Islafid Breeze" to a
hot summer night.

SUBMITTED
Author MJ. Rose will be a keynote speaker at the
Amelia Island Book Festival, Feb. 11-13.


Festival focus
This review is one in a series on books that will be fea-
tured at the Amelia Island Book Festival 2010, scheduled
for Feb. 11-13. Reviewers represent a broad spectrum of
community readers and writers. The festival will select a
classic author each year and encourage the renewal of
interest and focus on their books. MJ. Rose, author of The
Memorist, will be a keynote speaker at the Book Festival
luncheon on Feb. 13.
Visit www.ameliaislandbookfestival.com or call Dickie
Anderson at 556-6455.


JOANI ELEMENT
For the News-Leader
International best-selling author MJ.
Rose is attractive, articulate and an expert
on reincarnation, the jumping-off point of
her attention-getting, two-part series, The
Reincarnationist and The Memorist.
Fox Network has bought a pilot one-
hour drama based on The Reincarnationist,
raising the expectation that reincarnation
may soon go mainstream.
Or is belief in reincarnation already
mainstream? Rose heads many chapters of
The Memorist with explanatory quotes ,
from serious thinkers such- as Count Leo
Tolstoy, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jack London
and Socrates, as well as The Kabbalah.
Each quotation states that in one way or
another the soul survives death to live
again and again in different times, in differ-
ent forms, behind different faces, but
always trailing the unresolved problems of
the past as the soul strives to "develop all
the perfections." (The Kabbalah)
Still, no one needs to believe in the pos-
sibility of memories bubbling up from past
lives to enjoy tose's The Memorist. Simply
close your eyes and recall being young and
in love, dancing to the romantic strains of
"Stars Fell on Alabama." Or hum the
theme to the 1975 movie "Jaws" and let the


tingles climb up
your spine all
these years later.
Remember how
music evokes
memories in all of
us, suspend your
skepticism for a
time, and pick up
The Memorist's
riveting tale of
Meer Logan, who
lives with a
sketchy, haunting
melody that
inconveniently - and without warning -
plunges her into the intimate thoughts and
happenings of a life (or two) that she's
lived centuries before.
Early in the book, Meer is presented
with two pieces of paper: a drawing of a
wooden box, one she drew from memory
as a child, and a page from a current auc-
-tion catalog showing the identical box and
identifying it as one owned by a friend of
Ludwig van Beethoven. Is there any way
she could have known about the box as a
child? What connection could it possibly
have to her? Did she or did she not actually
live as Margaux Neidermier in 1814, meet
the musician Beethoven, and become the
link to an ancient, lost flute inscribed with
