I he Tuskegee Airmen were a celebrated
i group of about 1,000 African-American fight-
er pilots who flew more than 15,000 combat
missions during World War 11 with a near-
perfect record of not losing bombers.
Ret. Major Ralph L. Turner, one of those legendary
airmen, was recently in Fernandina Beach for a visit.
Turner has ties to the area through his wife, Mary,
who grew up here and is also close friends with Willie .
Mae Ashley, a former teacher at Peck High School. ,
Turner, 85, originally from Los Angeles, began serv-
ing in 1943 and became part of the squadron of fighter
pilots who flew in the Army Air Corps in World War II.
Stationed in Ramitelli, Italy, Turner flew 53 missions
over Germany..The pilots also had a "rest camp" in
Naples, he says, where they.went after every 10 to 12
missions.
"I stayed in Italy for about a year," he says. He was
waiting in Ramitelli for orders to go to the Pacific when
the atom bomb ended the war.
"I didn't mind being a pilot," says Turner. "You start.

Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers agreed Tuesday that parking
spaces should not be removed along
Atlantic Avenie for a proposed island
bicycle trail.
Instead, the street should be des-
ignated a "shared-road segment" of
the trail for both bicycles and cars,
commissioners told representatives of
the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation and Amelia Island Trail team.
Mayor Susan Steger said the con-
sensus to keep parking on Atlantic
Avenue "in no way reflects that the
trail system doesn't need our sup-
port," but she said at least one house
on Atlantic would have "serious prob-
lems" if there was no parking on the
street.

created to provide pedestrian-friend-

Sheriff laments

News-Leader


Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves told city commissioners
Tuesday that "rumors" that he desires
to take over the city police department
are untrue.
But Seagraves also made it clear
that while he is "not God," he is the
sheriff - the top law enforcement offi-
cer in the county, including
Fernandina-Beach.
And he criticized local police for
failing to enforce the law in the city,
including open drug sales.
City Manager Michael Czymbor
said at the end of Tuesday's commis-
sion meeting that he appreciated the
sheriff's visit but was "troubled" by.
some of Seagraves' contentions "that
may not be totally accurate."
He said he and Police Chief Jim
Hurley would meet with the sheriff to
discuss any problems between the two

titled "Bridging Law

his department was

to take over the city

headed by .Iurley.
"The only way (to take over) is of
course by your vote, or to turn it over

The sheriff said he was "trying to

between the two law enforcement
agencies to end what he called a

The Nassau County Commission
has formed a committee to investigate
options for building new offices for
the sheriffs department
The decision came at Wednesday's
commission meeting after Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves decried the condi-
tions at the departments current head-
quarters, a complex largely made up
of aging trailers.
Seagraves gave a Powerpoint pres-


entation on the condition of the trailers
during the meeting. However, no
copies of the presentation were pro-
vided to the commission, according
to Angela Spears, the sheriffs public
information officer. A News-Leader
request for a copy of the presentation
was also denied because of security
reasons.
The construction of new offices for

Special wedding


dream comes true


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
On Saturday, on a beach in
Fernandina, two special people
renewed their wedding vows.
Stephanie Cone and Jerry Vanwey
met as competitors in the Special
Olympics. Their friendship blossomed
at Nassau Challengers Bowling and
soon the couple was inseparable.
On Oct. 5, 2006, they were mar-
ried quietly with one witness in St.
Marys, Ga.
Married life has held its share of
challenges but with the help offriends,
family and compassionate caseworkers
at Henderson Haven, Stephanie and
Jerry have been able to make a life for
themselves.
"They both struggle daily with dis-
abilities that they work hard to over-
come so they can be more independ-
ent. They just want to be seen as a
regular married couple," said Sherri
Henderson of Henderson Haven, Inc.,
an Orange Park firm that assists devel-
opmentally disabled individuals.
"We work helping them daily with
independent living skills such as budg-
eting, menu planning and things like
that."
Over the years the couple has
shared some setbacks, including a
near-fatal accident for Jerry in 2008.
When things settled down,
Stephanie sometimes daydreamed
about the big wedding she'd missed
out on. Little did she know that her
mother, Debbie Cone, with the help of

as other projects were given
priority, Seagraves said.
"It's trailer city - you know
that," Seagraves said. "What I
need 'to know is when you're
going to move on this. Are you
building it now? Next year? Five
years? ... These portable build-
ings have a limited life, and we
can't keep patching them."
Seagraves said the trailers
in his current compound have
suffered water damage and
problems with electrical
wiring - and that conditions
pose a health hazard to his
employees.
"My employees are still
working there.and complaining
of headaches, coughing," he
said. "... I have approached the
State Attorney's Office and
requested a grand jury investi-
gation, but I thought I should
bring it to you first."
"I understand the impor-
tance of this new building,"
Commissioner Stacy Johnson
said. "... Obviously the first step
is a site plan and a design.
Without a plan I don't think we
can even begin to move for-
ward."
"I agree with you,
Commissioner Johnson,"
Seagraves said. "That's why I'm
here today. ... It's your job to

better to get bicycles off
the sidewalks, Atlantic

are far more dangerous for

FDOT's Austin Chapman

possibility of expanding one of
the sidewalks along Atlantic to

Cone, whose late father
James Mills owned Jimmy's
Bargain House in Fernandina
in the late 1960s, drove to
Fernandina Beach from her
* Tampa home and stayed at the
home of her sister, Lynn Hill,
vowing to put together a wed-
ding for her daughter and son-
in-law.
'These kids, they love life
and they don't get special things
very often. This was a promise
and I was going to make it pos-
sible, but then my pockets ran
dry and I set out to get spon-
sors," said Cone. '
Sponsoring business includ-
ed Jade's Bistro, Beyond Blinds,
Shades and Shutters, Fred
Engelhardt, Go Fish Clothing
and Jewelry, Murray's Grille,
Making Waves Amelia, Star-
bucks Coffee, Winn-Dixie

Church of Christ.
"Thank you to the
Fernandina Beach community
for all your support in making a
dream come true for Stephanie
and Jerry," said Cone, who
also sends out appreciation to
Chal-lenger Bowling and
Meiinda Willaford and family
"for taking such great care of


a team together. We need to
know what you need," said
Commissioner Walter
Boatright. "... It takes awhile to
get the ball rolling, so we need
to start."
"I'm one step ahead of you
there," Seagraves said. "I've
already had a comprehensive
study done. It just came back to
my desk about a month ago."
"1 agree we need to do some-
thing." Commissioner Danny
Leeper said. "Nobody should
have to work in conditions like
that."
"I think you've been a vic-
tim of your own patience,"
Commissioner Mike Boyle told
Seagraves. "I don't think many
law enforcement officials would
put up with working like that."
State Attorney Angela Corey,
who attended the meeting, said
making progress toward a new
headquarters for the sheriff's
office was important notjustfor
the sheriff's employees, but for
the effective administration of
justice in the county. According
to Corey, evidence stored in
leaking, dilapidated trailers
could be corrupted.
"If the defense even gets a
whiff of the condition of these
buildings, they will come after
us on the sanctity of the evi-
dence," she said.
The commission voted unan-
imously to appoint a committee
- consisting of Boyle, County
Coordinator Edward Sealover,
Budget Director Ted Selby,
Engineering Services Director
Scott Herring and County


Sthe Amelia Island Trails proj-
ect team, supported that and
offered to work with commis-
sioners on a solution to their
concerns.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
suggested bringing the bike
path issue back to the com-
mission's next meeting on Sept
1 to give commissioners an
opportunity to review the pro-
posal and provide clear direc-
tion.
The bike and footpath sys-
tem will connect at least 20
parks, recreation centers and
beach access points, and will
be part of the national East
Coast Greenway.

Attorney David Hallman - to
work with Seagraves on an
analysis of costs and require-
ments for a new building.
Seagraves said after the
meeting that the battle for a new
building had been a long one.
"Sheriff Geiger, prior to me
taking office, had tried for the
last eight years he was in office
to get a new building," he said.
"Four years ago I went to the
board ... and explained it to
them. Then the chairman of the
board then was Tom Branan.
We were assured that some-
thing was going to happen. I've
been waiting four years, and I
ain't seen nothing yet. But I felt
good about today. I think today
we saw some positive action."
Seagraves added that the
trailers currently housing sev-
eral of his departments were
unsafe - particularly in hurri-
cane-prone Florida.
"If (the roof) fell in on dis-
patch, who're you going to call
when the system goes down?
This is the central hub for the
911 system for the whole coun-
ty. This is where everyone calls
for a rescue," he said. 'There's
no fire suppression system in
this facility. There's no fire
alarm in this facility. I put a
burglar alarm system in, and I
put an alarm system in the evi-
dence room when I took office
- but there wasn't one five years
ago.
"Everybody has to commute
around this whole facility out-
side in bad weather with paper-
work - and a lot of it's critical
paperwork," he added. "It's a
real job to'keep people satisfied
and happy working here. I
do it, but I'll tell you, it's really
hard."

Seagraves passed out a

which included a state

City commissioners chose not to respond Tuesday to
concerns expressed by Sheriff Tommy Seagraves, but the
owner of a downtown Fernandina Beach restaurant was not
so timid.
James Kerrigan, owner of Philly Boyz restaurant on North
Third Street, attended Tuesday night's city commission
meeting to address a planning issue but took the opportunity
to respond to Seagraves' complains about law enforcement
in the city.
Kerrigan told conunissioners he had "heard rumors that
the county wants to (take over city police)," but he thought
that a bad idea.
Kerrigan, who lives in Nassau Lakes. complained that
sheriff's officers "literally took 45 minutes to respond" to a
call he made, and an hour and a half to respond to a call his
wife made.
The city "responds to their calls in five minutes," he said.
"I think the sheriff needs more help in his county" than
the city needs from the sheriff, Kerrigan said.
He also responded to Seagraves' remarks that he can
legally enter the city to provide law enforcement whenever
he wants and that city police are overlooking open drug
sales.
"If (Seagraves) knows where these drug areas are (in
the city), why doesn't he take control of it?" rather than com-
plain about it, Kerrigan asked.


iff's office had "stepped up
and solved a robbery" but
"never even got a thank-you
from (the city) agency."
Seagraves also said he "knew
where to buy drugs in
Fernandina," implying the city
police are not addressing a
problem, and that he saw a
city administrator laughing on
television about a 15-year-old


who was allegedly raped in the
city.
"I come to you tonight to
work out this situation so the
citizens don't suffer,"
Seagraves said. "I'm not God,

to like Tommy Seagraves, but
you have to respect the sher-

In response to the city's

of the Restoration Foundation


said in an e-mail that the foun-

plans for the adaptive reuse of
the Centre Street post office
as City Hall when the city

she wrote.
According to the city press

did not accept terms of a letter
of intent from the city, but
"both parties are continuing
to negotiate an acceptable
agreement" A non-binding let-

Turner got out of the serv-
ice in 1947, but was recalled
to go to Korea in 1951.
'They were looking for
pilots, but they used me as a
radar controller," said Turner.
"They wanted a (former) pilot
to give them instructions they
could follow." After that,
Turner went to military'
school for electronics and
radar maintenance. He ended
up staying in the military for
20 years, and then worked for
Los Angeles County as an
appraiser for 17 years.
Turner said he was disap-
pointed that the Airmen
received the Congressional
Gold Medal so late in life. In
March 2007, about 300
Tuskegee Airmen and their
widows received the medal at
a ceremony in Washington,
D.C., but Turner did not
attend.
"A lot of friends, most of
them are not alive now," said


Turner. "I was unhappy about
getting the medal so late ...
most of the guys were gone."
"I didn't go to
Washington," he said. "I did-
n't keep up with the unit
They had meetings in August,
but I didn't go too often."
Turner did, however, receive
one of the medals.
Turner lives on Cape Cod
in the town of Cotuit, Mass.,
with his wife. He has two sons
and a daughter.
The Tuskegee Airmen
came from all over the United
States in response to a call
from the War Department to
form an all-black combat unit.
Prior to 1940, African-
Americans were barred from
flying for the U.S. Army. The
department received a large
number of applications from
men who qualified for the
highly demanding positions.
From 1941-46 nearly 1,000
pilots trained at the Tuskegee
Army Air Field in Alabama
and the group had one of the
best combat records in World
War II. They destroyed hun-

The Tuskegee Airmen were,
American soldiers whose nick-
name was the "Red Tails." The
fighter squadron was activated
from 1941-1946 during World
War II and assigned to the U.S.
Army Air Corps. They were dis-
tinguished patriots ready for the
challenge and a challenge is
what they got, for according to
some they already held one
strike against them - the color
of their skin. These loyal defend-
ers of the U.S. were also African-
Americans.
Those known as Tuskegee
Airmen accepted the test to
prove they too were part of a
nation worth fighting for. They
were dedicated, determined
young men who enlisted to
become America's first black
military airmen with a focus to
disprove the misconception that
their race lacked the intelli-
gence, skill, courage and patri-
otism to effectively fight side
by side on other continents of
the world. The color of their
skin didn't affect their strong
personal desire to serve their
country to the best of their abil-
ity, however other obstacles did
affect the quality of training
these soldiers received.
Bigotry and racism, both at
home and aboard, would see to
it that nearly 1,000 fighter pilots
would be trained as a segregat-
ed unit at an air base in
Tuskegee, Ala. Not allowed to
practice or fight with their white
counterparts, the Tuskegee
Airmen distinguished them-
selves from the rest of the fight-
er aircraft world by painting the
tails of their airplanes red, which
led to them becoming known
as the "Red Tails" or "Redtail
Angels." Later, when they
deployed overseas, they would
be known to the Luftwaffe as
the "Black Birdmen."
Prior to the Tuskegee
Airmen, no U.S. military pilot
had been of African-American
descent. In 1941 Congress
imposed the Army Air Corps to
form an all-black combat unit,
despite reluctance from the War
Department. In an effort to
eliminate the 'unit before it
began, the War Department set
up a system to accept only appli-
cants with high levels of flight
experience and superior edu-
cation. They expected this pol-


icy to elimi-
nate blacks
from consid-
ouy eration.
Ho w -
S ever, the
plan back-
fired when
highly quali-
fied black
VETERAN'S men who
CORNER had previ-
ously partic-
ipated in the
Debbie civilian Pilot
Walsh Training
Program
applied for the Army flight pro-
gram. Most were college grad-
uates or undergraduates while
others qualified through com-
prehensive academic entrance
exams. Those who possessed
the physical and mental qualifi-
cations were accepted as avia-
tion cadets to train as pilots, nav-
igators or bombardiers.
In June 1941 the Tuskegee
program officially began. Pilots
trained at the newly formed
99th Pursuit Squadron, Moton
Field, Ala., then move to nearby
Tuskegee Army Air Field. The
first aviation class began in July
1941, graduating in March 1942.
One instructor of the 99th was
the famed Lt Daniel James, Jr.
better known to most as
"Chappie" James, who in 1975
became the first African-
American to reach the rank of
four-star general.
Enlisted members of the pro-
gram trained in career fields
necessary to support Army Air
Corps flying squadrons and
ground support units. With lit-
tle backing from command-level
echelons and constantly tested
by racial animosity, engine
mechanics, armament special-
ists, radio repairmen, parachute
riggers, control tower opera-
tors, policemen and adminis-
trative clerks achieved skill-level
expertise. This venture of train-
ing an all-black contingent of
fighting soldiers would be know
in the history books as the
'Tuskegee Experiment"
Once the group was ready
for combat their first assign-
ment was the North African
Campaign. The 99th's first com-
bat mission flown with P-40s
was in the Mediterranean in
preparation for the Allied inva-
sion of Sicily in July 1943.
During this campaign they also
flew P-39s and P-47s and
received two Distinguished Unit
Citations. In July 1944 they
switched aircraft to the P-51 and
transferred to the332nd Fighter
Group.
The 332nd earned an
impressive combat record and
by war's end had substantiated
its worthiness. They were cred-
ited with shooting down 109
Luftwaffe aircraft, sinking an
Italian destroyer and' destroy-
ing numerous enemy fuel
dumps, trucks and trains.
During World War II the


squadron flew approximately
15,000 sorties and Tuskegee
Airmen were awarded several
Silver Stars, 95 Distinguished
Flying Crosses, 8 Purple
Hearts, 14 Bronze Stars and 744
Air Medals. In all, 992 pilots
were trained from 1940 to 1946.
' 445 deployed overseas and 150
Airmen lost their lives in acci-
dents or combat.
Tuskegee Army Air Field
continued to train new airmen
until 1946, with women entering
the program in several support
fields.
Outstanding accomplish-
ments by black soldiers influ-
enced the newly formed U.S.
Air Force plans to integrate
units in 1947. In 1948, by exec-
utive order, President Harry
Truman brought about the
beginning to the end of racial
segregation in the military.
Tuskegee Airmen found them-
selves in high demand through-
out the newly established U.S.
Air Force, and in 1949 took first
place in the annual Air Force
National Fighter Gunnery Meet
in Las Vegas.
President George W. Bush
presented the Congressional
Gold Medal, one of the highest
civilian awards, to about 300
Tuskegee Airmen on March 29,
2007, in Washington, D.C. The
decoration is awarded to an indi-
vidual who performs an out-
*standing act of service to the
security, prosperity, and nation-
al interest of the United States.
Throughout the years, there
have been numerous dedica-
tions to the Tuskegee Airmen in
the U.S. In August 2008 the
main artery into Hartsfield-
Jackson International Airport,
Atlanta, was renamed, honor-
ing their contributions.
There is also a national his-
torical site dedicated to the
Tuskegee Airmen of World War
II. It's located at Moton Field,
Ala., about: 50 miles from
Montgomery, and managed by
the National Park Service. For
more information visit www.nps.
gov/tuin.
Alabama Gov, Bob Riley, in a
statement honoring the
Tuskegee Airmen, said, "You
are proof that no race has a
monopoly on excellence, that
no one group has a singular
claim on heroism."

SOnce I figured all of this out, it was easy for
me to make the not-so-giant leap to arrive at an
understanding of how my brain works to deci-
pher the signals that my eyes receive. I
learned very early in my professional life that
any visual art I create takes on a Dahli-esque
droop. Photos I cut to fit frames, newspaper
articles I clip, even scrapbook pages I assem-
ble, all have a decided downturn toward the
lower right corner. Even my targets when I
took Gary Belson's firearms course had a nice,
tight grouping somewhere around the gizzard
instead of the heart.
All of this goes toward explaining why no


pictures or paintings are side-by-side on my
walls. Either the one on the right will be
1/1000th of an inch lower than its mates, or
the entire grouping will seem to slide down
the wall. That's.why I choose to grace those
walls with either single large paintings or artis-
tic groupings of several pieces of work.
My study of all of this mnemonic trickery
has led me to realize that each item in the clut-
tered wall or tabletop evokes an individual
memory, thought, or sensation every time I
look at it. The eye-catcher I bought this spring
in Williamsburg reminds me of the trip, while
the empty bottle of fingernail polish sitting
next to it tells me to buy more on my next trip
to Magna's.
If gremlins ever invade my house and
remove some of my put-downs, my life will
quickly derail into a train wreck of monumen-
tal proportions. I am sure that the resulting
chaos would make the antics of the Keystone
Kops look like a stately progression down a
peaceful boulevard.
If you see anyone skulking about our
house, tell them that it's all right to steal the
silver and the cash; just don't disturb thW dead
light bulb in the middle of the sofa or the
empty shampoo bottle sitting on the dining
room table.

Back-to-school bash for students


road to success is not
straight. There are curves
called failure, loops called
confusion, bumps called friends, red
lights called enemies and caution lights
called family, but with determination,
perseverance, faith and a leader called
Jesus, they will always be successful.
Many students from around Nassau
County came together for a back-to-
school rally and talent show at First
Missionary Baptist Church last
Thursday evening.
Our young people performed to the
glory and honor of God with prayer,
singing, acting, recitations, modeling
and dancing. They sang songs such as
"This Little Light of Mine," "I am a C,"
"Read Your Bible," "Lord's Army,"
"Fired up" and "This is the Way I Praise
the Lord."
Prayer was given by Ashanti McNeil,
the welcome by Wendell McHahee and
the service of the Lord began. The
guest speaker came from First New
Zion Missionary Baptist Church,
Jacksonville. Minister DeWayne Brown,


inspired our young
people to be leaders
.. and not followers, but if
you must follow, follow
' Christ, for he is truly
S looking for bold sol-
diers in his army.
Some of the best
dancers were Shanice
Sanders, Arlene
NOW AND Jordan, Jaloy and Aha
THEN Evans, Ashanti McNeil,
.... Destane Karim and
Ashton Harris. Poems
Maybelle were by Jalay Evans
Kirkland and Shanaya

FRIDAY. August 21.2009/News-Leader


RELIGION


Science, faith and God living on the inside


watched, it collapsed. The
look on our teacher's face
said it all. He knew it was
going to happen. The classroom
filled with wonder as the object in
front of us continued to fold and
crumble.
Of all the high school classes I
took, science was my favorite.
Though I was a bit distracted by
social .issues, and as a result not the
greatest student, anytime we got to
engage in a science project, I was all
over it. From dissecting frogs to cre-
ating flammable gases, I found it all
fascinating. Nothing, however,
caught my attention quite like the
day I watched the steel one-gallon
can fold into a twisted mass right in
front of my eyes. Nobody was even


touching it.
Now please
don't try this at
home, but here's
how it worked. Our
teacher took an
empty one-gallon
metal can and
washed it out thor-
oughly. With the lid
PUPI T off he placed the
NOTES . can in a special
holder and then put
a small Bunsen
Pastor burner under it and
Rob Goyette began heating it up.
Once it was good
and hot, he carefully screwed the lid
back on and shut the burner pff. The
results were astounding. Suddenly,
as we all stared at it, the hot can col-


lapsed. It was as if some huge invisi-
ble creature had come into the room,
grabbed the can in its hand, and
began crushing it. I'm not talking
about putting a few little dents in it.
I'm talking about crushing it.
Our teacher, being the good
teacher that he was, seized the
moment. "Here's how it works," he
said, enjoying our undivided atten-
tion. "By heating up the can, all the
air on the inside rises out the lid.
Once the lid is back on, and the heat
turned off, no air can come back in.
The result - the atmospheric pres-
sure on the outside of the can is
greater than whats on the inside and
the can caves in.
Before that time, I never under-
stood what atmospheric pressure
was. Now I know. Not just through


my science class but through life
itself. Have you ever noticed how
when life's circumstances heat up
and all our inner strength seems to
leave our bodies, how the pressures
on the outside can literally begin to
crush us? I have.
Thankfully, God has left us with a
remedy. The Bible is very clear. If we
acknowledge our need for a savior,
and invite Jesus into our heart to be
Lord of our lives, He has promised to
take up His residence on the inside
of us. The wonderful thing is that
when life-heats up, He doesn't leave.
To me that's awesome.
Think about it. When all of life is
crushing down around you, if you've
invited Jesus into your heart, there's
no reason to fear. The presence of
God on the inside is greater than the


pressures of life on the outside.
Sure, I know that even good
church going people can crumble
under the weight of difficult circum-
stances, but I guarantee you it's
never because God has forsaken
them. A more likely reason is
because the place in their life that
belonged to God was somehow filled
up with other things. That, by the
way, is not a word of correction to
you who are reading this, but rather
a public confession from my own life.
Either way, the message of hav-
ing God, the creator of all things,
dwelling on the inside of you by His
Spirit, is both intimate and essential
to having a life of peace and victory.
Robert L. Goyette is pastor of
Living Waters World Outreach Center

Amelia Plantation Chapel
will begin an eleven-week Beth
Moore women's Bible study -
Jesus The One And Only -
starting Sept 22 at 10 a.m.
This is an in-depth study of
the life of Jesus based on the
book of Luke. Through video
and group study, participants
will join Moore on a life-chang-
ing journey that leads through
the hills of Galilee with the
Teacher, across the lake with
the Master, and finally on the
road toward the cross with the
Savior - getting to know Jesus
intimately, as though walking
with Him during His earthly
ministry
The study includes a worlk-
Sbook for a cost of S15. A nurs-
ery will be provided upon
advance notice. For infornma
tion or to register call the
chapel office, 277-4414, or e-

HOMES


Habitat holding workshops


Nassau Habitat for
Humanity will hold workshops
for prospective buyers and
accept applications to buy
Habitat homes built on Amelia
Island.
To get an application, an
applicant must attend a Nassau
Habitat Family Selection
Workshop to learn about
Habitat's program. Three
workshops will be held in the
reception area of the Peck
Center on Saturday, Sept. 26
at 2 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 1 at 7
p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 3 at 2
p.m. The Peck Center is locat-
ed at 516 South 10th St. in
Fernandina Beach.
These Family Selection
Workshops explain the eligi-
bility requirements, how the
selection process works and
what commitments a family
must make to buy a Nassau


Habitat home. The sessions
last about an hour, with ques-
tion and answer time after-
ward.
Nassau Habitat offers 2
and 3 bedroom homes, built
on land that Nassau Habitat
owns.
All applicants are evaluat-
ed based on their need for safe,
affordable housing, their abil-
ity to partner with family and
friends and with Nassau
Habitat to meet the 300 hour
"Sweat Equity" requirement
and the family's ability to repay
a zero interest mortgage for
the home. Applicants must
demonstrate annual income of
between $15,000 and $41,000
to afford a Nassau Habitat
home being built in
Fernandina Beach.
Nassau Habitat has just
completed its 25th affordable


home. Families are selected
for these homes without
regard to race, color; national
origin, religion, sex, family sta-
tus or disability.
As part of a non-profit
Christian ministry, ,Nassau
Habitat works to eliminate
inadequate housing in Nassau
County, one home at a time.
Homes are built largely by vol-
unteers working alongside
future Habitat families.
Local businesses also sup-
port Nassau Habitat by dis-
counting or donating new
materials and labor. These
efforts all help keep down the
cost of a Nassau Habitat home.
For further information
about Nassau Habitat or these
workshops, please call 277-
0600 or visit NassauHabitatfor
Humanity.org. The office is
open Wednesdaymornings.

Yulee's Cassidy w


BETH JONES
News-Leader

Josh Cassidy, who led the
county in hitting with a .452 bat-
ting average last'season, is the
first Yulee High School base-
ball to sign to play on the next
level.
Cassidy, 18, will play next
spring at Hiram College in
Hiram, Ohio, just south of
Cleveland. It's a Division III
four-year school, so Cassidy
won't be playing on scholar-
ship. But he did secure aca-
demic grants set. aside for
Hiram athletes.
"I was offered by a bunch
of other places ... but they
couldn't match what Hiram
did," Cassidy said.
Cassidy was an all-county
selection his senior season and
was honorable mention the two
prior seasons. Along with the
.452 batting average, he had 33
hits with six RBIs, scored 27
runs and had an on-base aver-
age of .565 his final season with
the Hornets.
"He was definitely onie of the
hardest workers," YHS Coach
Will Minor said. "You could
always find him in the cages.


Josh Cassidy at bat this,
spring for the Hornets.

"He didn't have a whole lot
of power, but he was always on
base somehow. He's strong, but
not real big (5-foot-6, 165
pounds). He worked really hard
to make himself the best play-
er he could be."
Cassidy started playing T-
ball at the tender age of 3 and
continued through high school,
playing junior varsity his fresh-
man year at Fernandina Beach


ill play 1

before transferring to Yulee
High School, where he played
three years of varsity baseball.
"It was a tough decision, but
I eventually decided on Yulee,"
Cassidy said.
Cassidy logged time at
shortstop his junior year, but
he was the Hornets' starting
second baseman last season.
"He was like a field rat,"
Minor said. "He's usually one of
the first ones to get there and
always the last to leave. At the
end of last year, I said, 'Why
don't I just give you a key?'"
Minor said a couple of Yulee
players have walked on at jun-
ior colleges but Cassidy is the
first to sign.
"He's our first player to get
an opportunity to play at the
next level," Minor said. "Getting
a spot is the biggest thing, espe-
cially for baseball, because they
don't have a lot of scholarship
money, even the big schools."
Cassidy said a highlight of
his senior season with the
Hornets was the week the team
took on Bishop Snyder, Orange
Park and Mandarin.
. "I was 8-for-9 the whole
week," he said. "That was a
good week for me."

Sailing club holds


annual Bikini Race


JOHN BURNS
For the News-Leader

The Amelia Island Sailing
Club held its annual Bikini Race
Aug. 15. So named, not for the
attire worn, but because a
female crew-member must
steer the boat throughout the
race..
Race committee chairman
Joe Bowen established an 11-
mile course starting-just-west of
Fort Clinch at red but) 2. The
boats headed east towards the
ocean passing buoy YF to star-
board (right), then onto red 18,
where they turned and head-
ed back into Cumberland
Sound, completing the remain-
der of the course, rounding five
other buoys before passing the
finish line at red buoy 10 just off
the downtown marina.
As usual, the start was quite
a sight as the competing boats,
weighing up to 16,000 pounds,
jockeyed for position to be the
first boat across the line.
Sometimes only a couple of feet
apart, the captains could be
heard shouting commands,
winches were heard turning
and sails flapped as the boats
approached the start.
When the starting gun
sounded (OK it was only a
horn), Flamingo and Sunday
Mornin' Jazz crossed the line
abreast of each other. The rest
of the fleet was bunched just
behind the leaders. As with
every race, after the boats
crossed the starting line, they
spread out as each captain


chooses a direction, allowing
for tacking and current, that he
thought would get them to the
next buoy first.
Mother Nature did her
share by supplying adequate
winds to propel the fleet at
upwards of 7 knots. Three
boats, Baby Blooz, Sunday
Mornin' Jazz and Flamingo,
took an early lead and, although
challenged throughout the
race, they held onto their lead.
Mast Cdnfusion and Aqtilla
fought a duel through five
marks, sometimes less than six
feet separating them as they
turned around the buoys.
The race became even more
challenging as the boats head-
ed south from Cumberland
Island towards the finish line
at the downtown marina. As it
turned out, the course, incom-
ing tide and wind direction
combined to force the boats to
navigate through the shallows
just west of the outer marker.
Baby Blooz ,which had been
clearly in the lead, suddenly
ran aground. The crew lost pre-
cious minutes and 'its com-
manding lead getting the boat
free.
In the end, Flamingo, cap-
tained by Jennifer Bowen, took
first Place; Baby Blooz, with
Capt Marianne Gruber at the
helm, took second; and Sunday
Mornin' Jazz with Capt Barba-
ra Sokolowski took third Place.
Anyone interested in the
Amelia Island Sailing Club
should contact Commodore
Charles Steinkamp at 583-3156.

Tim Poschel
fought this six-
foot Atlantic
sailfish, above,
for 30 minutes
before Capt.
Benny Hendrix
billed and
released the sail
aboard the local
charter fishing
boat, "Heavy
Hitter." Below,
Christie Goyette
recently joined
husband Robby
on a kayak fish-
ing trip and
caught this big
redfish.
SPECIAL PHOTOS


:. "I was just about to drop
, the anchor at an offshore
Shard bottom when I noticed a
long bill sticking straight up
out of the water," said Capt.
Benny Hendrix, skipper of


the fishing charter boat
"Heavy Hitter." "After a closer
look, I saw deep under the
water a spectacular sailfish
billing ballyhoo. It was quite a
sight to see in the clear off-
shore water condition.
"Immediately I secured
the anchor line and grabbed a
kingfish rod and rigged a live
p6gy to the kingfish leader.
After casting the live bait
from the bow of my charter
boat, I watched the sail swim
right up to the live pogy, kill
the pogy with its bill, then
swallow the bait in a matter of
a few seconds."
Hendrix quickly handed
the deeply bent kingfish rod
to his charter client, Tim
Poschel, and it was fight on.
During the 45-minute battle,
the sailfish spent most of the
time jumping and actually
"tail-walking" on the water to
the pleasure of the "Heavy
Hitter" fishing party.
... After the beautiful sailfish
was unhooked, revived and
released, Poschel hooked an
even larger game fish while
fishing on the bottom with
live pogies. The fight lasted
some 30 minutes before an
eight-foot tiger shark bit right
through the large saltwater
hook.
Closer to shore, Hendrix
reports jetty fishing is excel-
lent for red drum at the tip of
the St. Marys south jetty
rocks during the incoming
tide.
"Most of the reds are run-
ning in the 30-inch category,"
he said. "While they are fun
to catch and release for our
charter clients, very few of
the reds are falling in the
legal slot limit, which is 18-27-
inches."

SUBMITTED
Sharon B. Smith landed this -16.5-pound, 38-inch cobia
about 15 miles out recently. She was "dropping a line
with a pogy on the end, doing some bottom fishing, and
the cobia just scooped it up and kept on swimming," she
said. "I noticed that I was letting more line out than the
depth we were at and started reeling him in and then the
fun began." She was fishing with Jim Wilson and Bob
Gaster, the "Grey Beard Guys."

The new Amelia Community Theatre adjacent to the old facility at Cedar and Third streets will have seating capacity for 140.


ACT spotlight on new season, new theater


ROBERT WEINTRAUB
For the News-Leader

passing through Cedar and
Third streets in the next 12
months five women swim-
mers remembering their lifetimes
of frolics and foibles, a woman des-
perate to improve her life trying to
learn from an alcoholic teacher, a
mismatched pair of squabbling
bachelors, a British army officer
protecting his daughters from a
band of pirates, three strong-willed
women battling over a troubled girl
and a Sherlock Holmes clone hunt-
ing down the person trying to mur-
der him.
They are the lead actors in
Amelia Community Theatre's 29th
season, which bows in September.
But stealing the spotlight will be the
opening of the long-awaited $2.15
million new theater in time for the
full-stage Gilbeit & Sullivan musi-

ATLANTA - Landslide Records
announces a Sept. 29 release date
for Sean's Blues, a 20-track memori-
al retrospective collection saluting
the late blues guitarist and singer,
Sean Costello.
Culled from his three commer-
cial album releases from 1996
through 2001, as well as previously
unreleased tracks including three
live songs, Sean's Blues captures
the essence of what made Costello
such a rising star in the blues world
until his tragic death in April 2008,
one day before his 29th birthday. A
portion of the proceeds from the
sale of the album will benefit the

old, will increase seating capacity
more than 50 per cent to 140, with
future expansion to 175 planned.
Seats will be more comfortable;
each arranged to provide an unre-
stricted view of the stage. The stage
area will be more than doubled with
enhanced technical features that
will allow larger, more complex pro-
ductions. Lobby and box office
areas will also be significantly larg-
er. On-site parking will accommo-
date a full house.

The album's liner notes include
personal remembrances from
Landslide Records President
Michael Rothschild of Fernandina
Beach, who co-produced the compi-
lation with Jeff Bakos and recorded
two albums with Costello in 2000
(Cuttin' In) and 2001 (Moanin' for
Molasses). Five tracks from those
two albums are included in Sean's
Blues. The CD package also con-
tains several previously unpub-
lished Costello photos. Landslide
Records is now independently dis-
tributed in the U.S. by Select-O-
Hits.
Costello was already a blues gui-
tar prodigy when, at age 15, he won


along with thousands of ticket buy-
ers and donors. The $1.3 million
raised so far came solely from the
community with no government
funding. On time and on budget,
the new theater is expected to be
ready for "Pirates" preparations in
November.
- The old theater, a former school
board office building transformed
into a theater for the 1990 season,
will continue to house a variety of
productions and events..
Opening the 2009-10 season,
'The Dixie Swim Club," which runs
Sept. 10-26, is about five Southern
women whose friendship began on
their college swim team. They meet
for a long weekend every August to


the 1994 Blues Talent Contest spon-
sored by the Memphis Beale Street
Blues Society and later competed in
the National Blues Talent
Competition, which also featured
Susan Tedeschi. The two met up
again in 1997 and began doing
shows together - first out of
Boston and later Atlanta. Costello
played lead guitar on Tedeschi's
best selling CD, Just Won't Burn,
while she participated in 1998 ses-
sions with his band, two tracks of
which are represented on Sean's
Blues.
Costello released his first album,
Call the Cops, in 1996, from which
three tracks were selected for the
new compilation. They showcase an


recharge those relationships. Free
from husbands, kids and jobs, they
meet at the same beach cottage on
North Carolina's Outer Banks to
catch up, laugh and meddle in each
other's lives.
"Educating Rita," Nov. 5 to 21,
describes the trials and transforma-
tions that a 26-year-old Liverpool
hairdresser goes through to devel-
op from a person without formal
schooling into a student who passes
her university exams with ease and
distinction. She is paired with a dis-
illusioned, alcoholic professor who
has lost all enthusiasm for acade-
mia. A small, intimate comic-drama,
it tells a story of big ideas, with
humor in the writing, but a serious
exploration of class and choice.

For the News-Leader
The Gullah/Geechee Nation
International Music & Movement
Festival will close at American Beach
on Sunday.
This historic three-day authentic
celebration of Gullah/Geechee cul-
ture begins today in Savannah, Ga.
The major day of the event will be
Saturday in Brunswick, Gs., at
Howard Coffin Park. This will be the
departure point for participants as
they take a historic crossing from
Georgia into Florida as many of their
Gullah/Geechee elders and ances-
tors did seeking work and a new life
along the port in Fernandina's "Old
Town."
Many historic churches in
Florida were placed there as
Gullah/Geechees migrated across
the river from Kingsland, Ga., to
worship each week. Just as those
churches were built on sacred
ground, this year's festival will be the
foundation for next year's event,
which will go further south in
Florida.
On Sunday at 11 a.m. the partici-
pants will depart Brunswick, Ga.,
together in a historic procession into
Nassau County. A praise house serv-
ice will be held at Mt. Olive Church
in Nassauville beginning at 12:30
p.m. After the service, the buses will
continue a tour through Yulee,
O'Neil and Amelia Island.
The closing of the event will be a
day in honor and tribute to Gullah/
Geechee sacred ancestor, MaVynee
Betsch, "The Beach Lady." The Peck
Ensemble and.Queen Quet,
Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee
Nation, are scheduled to do presen-
tations at 3 p.m. at the base of the
historic "Nana" sand.dune that is
nowv officially a part of the U.S.
National Park Service system. Those
that intend to come to the tribute are
encouraged to arrive at the beach by
2:30 p.m. The event is open to the
public.
SThe founders of the event, Queen
Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Gee-
chee Nation and Kwame Sha of All
Mobile Productions, invite the com-
munity to come out and share in this
special tribute to honor one of the
first inductees into the Gullah/Gee-
chee Nation's Hall of Fame.
The Beach Lady was among the
first inducted and honored at last
year's event in Charleston, S.C.
Seven more inductees will be hon-
ored on Saturday at noon at Howard
Coffin Park in Brunswick, Ga.

FA Man Wakes Up...


A man wakes up in the morning after


sleeping on an advertised mattress,


under an advertised blanket;


in advertised pajamas.


He will bathe in an advertised shower,


wash with advertised soap,


shave with an advertised razor,


drink advertised coffee after


his advertised juice and


put on advertised clothes and accessories.


He will ride to work in an advertised car,


sit at an advertised workstation,


utilize an advertised computer and


write with an advertised pen.


Yet this man hesitates to advertise


saying advertising does not pay.


Finally, when his unadvertised


business goes under,


he will then advertise it for sale.

Breastfeeding best for babies


3ii~3ii~I~~

Nurse Rhonda Reed offers advice to new mom LUssa
Caswell of Blackshear, Ga. Son Reece was born at
Baptist Medical Center Nassau on July 16.


Most women today. are
aware that breastfeeding is
nutritionally better for their
babies, helps develop a closer
bond with the infant and saves'
money. But for convenience
sake, mothers often choose bot-
tle-feeding, says nurse Rhonda
SReed, certified lactation con-
sultant at Baptist Medical
Center Nassau.
"What new moms may not
think about is that in addition to
these benefits, breastfeeding
can be a tremendous asset dur-
ing a storm or emergency," she
adds. "It can even save lives."
According to the Interna-
tional Lactation Consultant
Association, of which Reed is a
member, infants and children
are the most vulnerable during
emergencies - the younger the
child, the higher the risk. In
emergency situations, infant for-
mula and adequate refrigera-
tion to keep it safe may be in
short supply. Clean water may
not be available to mix with
powdered formula; or to wash
bottles and utensils used for
feeding. Unsanitary conditions


can lead to
illness and
infections
that are
more seri-
S ., ous for
S. babies and
children
than to adults.
"Breastfeeding is always
safest for babies during emer-
gencies," Reed says. "It is ster-
ile and requires no water, feed-
ing utensils or fuel. It contains
antibodies that protect infants
from bacteria which can cause
diarrhea and other infectious
disease. When babies are
breastfed their food source is
always available. It also keeps
babies warm and lowers their
stress levels, and their mom's."
Reed and her colleagues
understand that breastfeeding
in today's world can be a chal-
lenge, but there are practical
strategies women can use to
make breastfeeding work in
their everyday lives. For ideas
and information, call Baptist
Nassau's maternity department
at 321-3581.

Reform health care
I have been seeing them for 10 years. They
come to the Nassau County Department of Health
clinic or the Barnabas Good Samaritan Clinic
with untreated high blood pressure, undiagnosed
heart disease, diabetes and other undertreated
medical issues. They are construction workers,
landscapers, restaurant workers or houseclean-
ers - working but without health insurance and
access to medical care. Others have lost jobs and
a few are too sick to work.
They find their way to these low-cost or free
clinics and see volunteer doctors. The clinic visit
may be free but the 'medications and testing,
required to diagnose and treat their problems
certainly are not The care they get is fragment-
ed and does not address preventive care or well-
ness.
We live in a generous community that does
many fine things for the less fortunate among us.
And I think we live in a generous country. Why
can't we find a way to provide basic health care
to these folks right here on Amelia Island and the
45-50 million other uninsured people in the USA?
Why can't we make health care better and less
expensive for those of us who do have medical
insurance? Why can't we make surethat those of
us who lose a job or get sick do not lose our
health insurance for just that reason?
We have a president who is asking our
Congress and us to step up and do something
bold about this problem that has been recog-
nized as needing action for years. I think we need
to press on and not get bogged down in all the nar-
row-minded, unfounded noise about "death pan-
els" and "socialized medicine." We need to
encourage our leaders to find a way to get this
done. So as a physician I strongly favor health care
reform. This reform should:
1. Extend medical insurance coverage to all
Americans.
2. Emphasize preventive care and wellness.
3. Improve quality and reduce costs. This can
be done by changing reimbursement for provid-
ed services to a system that rewards outcomes
(better health), not quantity or volume of services.
And yes, I think that if meaningful health care
reform cannot be paid for by cost savings, that
well-to-do Americans should pay slightly higher
taxes to cover it I want to live in a community and
a country that provides good quality health care
to all its citizens.

Dogs need help too
This is in response to the recent pleas for
help and land for abandoned and abused cats
(Aug. 14). Cats are not the only creatures out
there that are ill treated or maliciously abused by
people. I have seen many cases where other ani-
mals suffer the same treatment. For instance,
just recently was a case in Glynn County, Ga.,
where a lady had beaten innocent puppies to
death with a sledgehammer. How about the
many dogs that suffer a slow painful death tied up
in someone's back yard from starvation or heart-
worm disease. I once fostered a dog that had his
entire body wrapped in barbed wire. Dogs are in
need of help as well!
I personally hope if anyone chooses to donate
money or land for a cat sanctuary that they make
sure this land will be manned. I do not mean the
once per week feedings that happen in most feral
cat colonies. I have personally experienced many
feral cat colonies that have gone wrong.
Emaciated, injured and diseased cats killing birds,
squirrels, rabbits, possums and raccoons. What
about these creatures the cats are killing? Are
their lives less meaningful than the cats that kill
them?
I am in no way a "cat hater." I have five feline
children of my own that live inside my house.
Let's face it, all creatures need help.
Anyone interested in helping abused and aban-
doned dogs and puppies may contact 8 C's Big
Dog Rescue, Inc., at (904) 716-0309, e-mail big-
dogrescue@windstream.net. We are a nonprofit
charitable organization. Donations are tax

Taxes, kayak, fishing piers
I simply must comment on former city com-
missioner Ron Sapp's article, "New taxes, new
fees - for what?" (Aug. 12).
In his article, Mr. Sapp refers to himself as a
"practical liberal." He goes on to say that he
would like to see a canoe/kayak launch on Egan's
Creek and a fishing pier extending into the
Atlantic Ocean. Mr. Sapp also states that, "We
have an extensive parks and recreation program
in Fernandina Beach, one that sets us apart from
most cities in Florida and I don't mind paying
taxes to support it."
To understand Mr. Sapp's point of view, one
must consider this: Mr. Sapp has enjoyed a long
career in public education and as a city commis-
sioner. He is now or soon will receive two gov-
ernment (read taxpayer-funded) pensions.
According to the Nassau County Property
Appraiser records, the fair market value of Mr.
Sapp's 2,63%-square-foot-home 'is $40.1,364.
However, since he has had a longstanding home-

stead exemption, the taxable value is only $36,185.
That means that Mr. Sapp's annual property tax
is $705, of which $12 per month goes to the city
of Fernandina Beach. Is it practical and/or liberal
to draw two government pensions and expect to
build a kayak launch and a fishing pier all for
$12 per month?
Perhaps Mr. Sapp should consider dropping
his homestead exemption, thereby increasing
his annual property tax from $705 to $7,184.
Welcome to the painful, real world of property tax,
Mr. Sapp.
According to DataQuick Information Systems,
the median sales price of homes in Nassau
County dropped 18.4 percent in the second quar-
ter of 2009 when compared to the same quarter
last year. The market tracking company Trulia
announced that for the third month in a row,
Jacksonville led all metro areas in the United
States with the most residential real estate price
reductions.
The national foreclosure rate is up 32 percent
from a year ago and national bankruptcy filings'
surged 35 percent over last year. In July, initial'job-
less claims rose to 558,000. Despite this gloomy
news, Nassau County and Fernandina Beach
commissioners recently voted to increase our
property taxes.
I have never met Mr. Sapp and personally I
don't have an axe to grind with him. However, his
point of view regarding publicly funded projects
and services seems to be shared by at least some
of our current commissioners. Paying $705 per
year in property tax and receiving two govern-
ment funded pensions is not the norm. Most of
us won't receive a government pension and we
pay more than $705 in property tax. We are
tapped out. We need to reduce government
spending by streamlining services and reducing
non-essential projects.
If you are interested in what property your
local elected officials own and the tax they pay, go
to www.nassauflpa.com and search their name.
There is an online calculator that will estimate the
tax. You may be surprised at what you find.

Parking and taxes
Ron Sapp's article opposing parking fees while
doing a Jeff Foxworthy imitation of "Here's Your
Sign" was confusing to me.,Talking about
Fantasyland at City Hall along with "not in
Fernandina Beach" made me wonder if he was
concerned that Key West's Fantasy Fest was
coming to town. I had seen an ad on the Internet
for a local bed and breakfast being advertised as
"gay friendly" and I snickered as that is not how
I would describe Fernandina. In spite of having
a large gay and lesbian population here, with the
exception of a few most are deep in the prover-
bial closet along with the atheists and anyone
else who is different, so I doubt we will be invad-
ed by bare-cheeked leather chaps anytime soon.
So I guess his main message was the thought of
charging for parking is morally reprehensible in
some way.


Don't get me wrong, I like Ron Sapp and was
annoyed to see him criticized as though having
held office here he is no longer allowed an opin-
ion and though rm a "failed" candidate I get to dis-
agree because I didn't give up my citizenship
either. In fact we often agree about goals but not
always on how to get there so his position on this
subject surprised me. He has long said he felt the
whole island should be under dity government
and I agree but the problem is just wishing it
won't make it happen, you cannot force an annex-
ation, they would have to want to join us. It would
have to be shown that it is a benefit to be part of
the city, to lower taxes for all of us, to have pre-
ferred access to these amenities. It seems our sta-
tus as a county seat is being chipped away with
more of the functions going to Yulee. So what is
the advantage of being a city resident?
I am not claiming to have all the answers but
I think we should open our minds about the sub-
ject and think about it. We pay the taxes for the
public amenities while those outside the com-
munity receive equal benefit One person sug-
gested they would go to Starbucks for a coffee
rather than go downtown to fish out coins for a
meter, yet Starbucks pays property tax too. We
rely on property tax and we all pay them, includ-
ing the non-income producing residential prop-
erty.
For locals doing daily business it would be,
inconvenient so I think there should be parking
stickers for city residents that are issued along
with renewing license plates at the cost of the
sticker to put inside the front window, no fumbling
for coins for a city resident. I doubt seriously
that a tourist coming to town would think twice
about dropping coins in a meter anymore than I
do when I go into downtown Jacksonville. rm just
glad to find a spot. Maybe free parking down the
side streets would push more traffic to those
locations. I think it should be kept simple not
gating main beach and the downtown with kiosks
but see nothing wrong with giving preference
to locals while collecting income to help support
the community.
Our government has proven they will get
their income one way or another and we demand
continuing services, police, fire and emergency.
.I and my neighbors are grateful for the long-
needed repaving of our street that flooded in
every thunderstorm. Taxes are a necessity, how-
ever property tax is a particular burden. Sales
taxes you can adjust your spending with the
exception of needed products, income tax isa per-
centage but when your income goes down you
have no choice with whatever burden they apply
to your property. Even with homesteading they
go up and children inherit property but cannot
afford the new assessment that results. Any stu-
dent of Thomas Jefferson understands that a
large property-holding middle class is key to
democracy. In my opinion our tax base should be
changed at the state level, property tax elimi-
nated, but here at home we can only work with-
in the guidelines that are allowed and I think it is
time to get creative.

native, at Peterson Air Force Base in Massachusetts, above. First Lt. Ralph L. Turner, below, poses

T he Tuskegee Airmen were a celebrated
group of about 1,000 African-American fight-
er pilots who flew more than 15,000 combat
missions during World War II with a near-
perfect record of not losing bombers.
Ret. Major Ralph L. Turner, one of those legendary
airmen, was recently in Fernandina Beach for a visit.
Turner has ties to the area through his wife, Mary,
who grew up here and is also close friends with Willie
Mae Ashley, a former teacher at Peck High School.
Turner, 85, originally from Los Angeles, began serv-
ing in 1943 and became part of the squadron of fighter
pilots who flew in the Army Air Corps in World War II.
Stationed in Ramitelli, Italy, Turner flew 53 missions
over Germany. The pilots also had a "rest camp" in
Naples, he says, where they went after every 10 to 12
missions.
"I stayed in Italy for about a year," he says. He was
waiting in Ramitelli for orders to go to the Pacific when
the atom bomb ended the war.
"I didn't mind being a pilot," says Turner. "You start
out in the morning clean-shaven, come back and have .
dinner at night.... I didn't enjoy it, but it wasn't that. , . "

City favors parking over



bicycles on Atlantic Ave.


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers agreed Tuesday that parking
spaces should not be removed along
Atlantic Avenue for a proposed island
bicycle trail.
Instead, the street should be des-
ignated a "shared-road segment" of
the trail for both bicycles and cars,
commissioners told representatives of
the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation and Amelia Island Trail team.
Mayor Susan Steger said the con-
sensus to keep parking on Atlantic
Avenue "in no way reflects that the
trail system doesn't need our sup-
port," but she said at least one house
on Atlantic would have "serious prob-
lems" if there was no parking on the
street.
The Amelia Island Trail is being
created to provide pedestrian-friend-
ly modes of transportation on the
island. Phase I of the project uses
existing roads and sidewalks, trails,


At least one residence on

the Fort Clinch State Park trail sys-
tem and a ferry service to provide
48.6 miles of paths in 2010-11.
Planners have designated $2.5 mil-
lion in federal funding to provide at
least five miles of off-road trails and
other improvements in 2014 to link
the trail from the south end of the
island to the city marina downtown.
It would course along South
Fletcher Avenue, requiring the
removal of some mailboxes on that
street, and continue east along
Atlantic Avenue to downtown.
Although commissioners adopt-
ed a resolution in May supporting
the Amelia Island Trail, they back-


tracked when asked by FDOTto clar-
ify their approval for Atlantic Avenue.
Commissioner Jeffery Bunch said
Tuesday that many people living on
Atlantic Avenue were opposed to the
removal of parking, and added that he
"was not for that piece of the puzzle."
Vice Mayor Eric Childers con-
curred that he would not support that
part of the planned bike path either.
Commissioner Ken Walker said
that he rarely saw cars parked on
Atlantic Avenue and that a dedicated
bike path would be a good use for
the road - but he still wanted it for

Sheriff laments

ANGELA DAUGHTRY

Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves told city commissioners
Tuesday that "rumors" that he desires
to take over the city police department
are untrue.
But Seagraves also made it clear
that while he is "not God," he is the
sheriff - the top law enforcement offi-
cer in the county, including
Fernandina Beach.
And he criticized local police for
failing to enforce the law in the city,
including open drug sales.
City Manager Michael Czymbor
said at the end of Tuesday's commis-
sion meeting that he appreciated the
sheriff's visit but was "troubled" by
some of Seagraves' contentions "that
may not be totally accurate."
He said he and Police Chief Jim
Hurley would meet with the sheriff to
discuss any problems between the two

agencies.
In a presentation
titled "Bridging Law
Enforcement
Communication
Between County and
City," Seagraves said
his department was
"making no attempt
and had no desire"
to take over the city
police department


headed by Hurley.
"The only way (to take over) is of
course by your vote, or to turn it over
to the people" for them to decide,
Seagraves told city commissioners.
The sheriff said he was "trying to
bridge and build on communications"
between the two law enforcement
agencies to end what he called a
"power struggle."
But, he reminded, he is the "con-

News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
has formed a committee to investigate
options for building new offices for
the sheriff's department.
The decision came at Wednesday's
commission meeting after Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves decried the condi-
tions at the department's current head-
quarters, a complex largely made up
of aging trailers.
Seagraves gave a Powerpoint pres-


entation on the condition of the trailers
during the meeting. However, no
copies of the presentation were pro-
vided to the commission, according
to Angela Spears, the sheriff's public
information officer. A News-Leader
request for a copy of the presentation
was also denied because of security
reasons.
The construction of new offices for
the sheriff has been planned for sev-
eral years, but keeps getting delayed

Special wedding


dream comes true
HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
On Saturday, on a beach in
Fernandina, two special people
renewed their wedding vows.
Stephanie Cone and Jerry Vanwey
met as competitors in the Special
Olympics. Their friendship blossomed
at Nassau Challengers Bowling and
soon the couple was inseparable.
On Oct. 5, 2006, they were mar-
ried quietly with one witness in St.
Marys, Ga.
Married life has held its share of
challenges but with the help of friends,
family and compassionate caseworkers
at Henderson Haven, Stephanie and
Jerry have been able to make a life for
themselves.
'They both struggle daily with dis-
abilities that they work hard to over-
come so they can be more independ-
ent. They just want to be seen as a
regular married couple," said Sherri
Henderson of Henderson Haven, Inc.,
an Orange Park firm that assists devel-
opmentally disabled individuals.
"We work helping them daily with
independent living skills such as budg-
eting, menu planning and things like
that."
Over the years the couple has
shared some setbacks, including a
near-fatal accident for Jerry in 2008.
When things settled down,
Stephanie sometimes daydreamed
about the big wedding she'd missed
out on. Little did she know that her
mother, Debbie Cone, with the help of Stephanie Cone and.

Most women today are
aware that breastfeeding is
nutritionally better for their
babies, helps develop a closer
bond with the infant and saves
money. But for convenience
sake, mothers often choose bot-
tle-feeding, says nurse Rhonda
Reed, certified lactation con-
sultant at Baptist Medical
Center Nassau.
"What new moms may not
think about is that in addition to
these benefits, breastfeeding
can be a tremendous asset dur-
ing a storm or emergency," she
adds. "It can even save lives."
According to the Interna-
tional Lactation Consultant
Association, of which Reed is a
member, infants and children
are the most vulnerable during
emergencies - the younger the
child, the higher the risk. In
emergency situations, infant for-
mula and adequate refrigera-
tion to keep it safe may be in
short supply. Clean water may
not be available to mix with
powdered formula, or to wash
bottles and utensils used for
feeding. Unsanitary conditions

"Breastfeeding is always
safest for babies during emer-
gencies," Reed says. "It is ster-
ile and requires no water, feed-
ing utensils or fuel. It contains
antibodies that protect infants
from bacteria which can cause
diarrhea and other infectious
disease. When babies are
breastfed their food source is
always available. It also keeps
babies warm and lowers their
stress levels, and their mom's."
Reed and her colleagues
understand that breastfeeding
in today's world can be a chal-
lenge, but there are practical
strategies women can use to
make breastfeeding work in
their everyday lives. For ideas

priority, Seagraves said.
"It's trailer city - you know
that," Seagraves said. "What I
need to know is when you're
going to move on this. Are you
building it now? Next year? Five
years? ... These portable build-
ings have a limited life, and we
can't keep patching them."
Seagraves said the trailers
in his current compound have
suffered water damage and
problems with electrical
wiring - and that conditions
pose a health hazard to his
employees.
"My employees are still
working there and complaining
of headaches, coughing," he
said. "... I have approached the
State Attorney's Office and
requested a grand jury investi-
gation, but I thought I should
bring it to you first."
"I understand the impor-
tance of this new building,"
Commissioner Stacy Johnson
said. "... Obviously the first step
is a site plan and a design.
Without a plan I don't think we
can even begin to move for-
ward."
"I agree with you,
Commissioner Johnson,"
Seagraves said. "That's why I'm
here today. ... It's your job to
provide the constitutional offi-
cers with adequate workspace.
I know it's a burden, but ii- -, 11
a responsibility."

Community Development
Director Marshall McCrary
said that, although it would be
better to get bicycles off
the sidewalks, Atlantic
Avenue was a wide street,
and there are roads that
are far more dangerous for
bicycles.
FDOT's Austin Chapman
told commissioners there is a
possibility of expanding one of
the sidewalks along Atlantic to
12 feet wide to make it pass-
able for both pedestrians and
bicyclists.
Phil Scanlan, a member of

family, friends and Fernandina
Beach business people, was
about to make that dream come
true.
Cone, whose late father
James Mills owned Jimmy's
Bargain House in Fernandina
in the late 1960s, drove to
Fernandina Beach from her
Tampa home and stayed at the
home of her sister, Lynn Hill,
vowing to put together a wed-
ding for her daughter and son-
in-law.
"These kids, they love life
and they don't get special things
very often. This was a promise
and I was going to make it pos-
sible, but then my pockets ran
dry and I set out to get spon-
sors," said Cone.
Sponsoring business includ-
ed Jade's Bistro, Beyond Blinds,
Shades and Shutters, Fred
Engelhardt, Go Fish Clothing
and Jewelry, Murray's Grille,
Making Waves Amelia, Star-
bucks Coffee, Winn-Dixie
Yulee, Dottie B Florist and the
Church of Christ.
"Thank you to the
Fernandina Beach community
for all your support in making a
dream come true for Stephanie
and Jerry," said Cone, who
also sends out appreciation to
Chal-lenger Bowling and
Melinda Willaford and family
"for taking such great care of


a team together. We need to
know what you need," said
Commissioner Walter
Boatright. "... It takes awhile to
get the ball rolling, so we need
to start."
"I'm one step ahead of you
there," Seagraves said. "I've
already had a comprehensive
study done. It just came back to
my desk about a month ago."
"I agree we need to do some-
thing." Commissioner Danny
Leeper said. "Nobody should
have to work in conditions like
that."
"I think you've been a vic-
tim of your own patience,"
Commissioner Mike Boyle told
Seagraves. "I don't think many
law enforcement officials would
put up with working like that."
State Attorney Angela Corey,
who attended the meeting, said
making progress toward a new
headquarters for the sheriff's
office was important not just for
the sheriff's employees, but for
the effective administration of
justice in the county. According
to Corey, evidence stored in
leaking, dilapidated trailers
could be corrupted.
"If the defense even gets a
whiff of the condition of these
buildings, they will come after
us on the sanctity of the evi-
dence," she said.
The commission voted unan-
imously to appoint a committee
- consisting of Boyle, County
Coordinator Edward Sealover,
Budget Director Ted Selby,
Engineering Services Director
Scott Herring and County


the Amelia Island Trails proj-
ect team, supported that and
offered to work with commis-
sioners on a solution to their
concerns.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
suggested bringing the bike
path issue back to the com-
mission's next meeting on Sept.
1 to give commissioners an
opportunity to review the pro-
posal and provide clear direc-
tion.
The bike and footpath sys-
tem will connect at least 20
parks, recreation centers and
beach access points, and will
be part of the national East
Coast Greenway.

Attorney David Hallman - to
work with Seagraves on an
analysis of costs and require-
ments for a new building.
Seagraves said after the
meeting that the battle for a new
building had been a long one.
"Sheriff Geiger, prior to me
taking office, had tried for the
last eight years he was in office
to get a new building," he said.
"Four years ago I went to the
board ... and explained it to
them. Then the chairman of the
board then was Tom Branan.
We were assured that some-
thing was going to happen. I've
been waiting four years, and I
ain't seen nothing yet. But I felt
good about today. I think today
we saw some positive action."
Seagraves added that the
trailers currently housing sev-
eral of his departments were
unsafe - particularly in hurri-
cane-prone Florida.
"If (the roof) fell in on dis-
patch, who're you going to call
when the system goes down?
This is the central hub for the
911 system for the whole coun-
ty. This is where everyone calls
for a rescue," he said. 'There's
no fire suppression system in
this facility. There's no fire
alarm in this facility. I put a
burglar alarm system in, and I
put an alarm system in the evi-
dence room when I took office
- but there wasn't one five years
ago.
"Everybody has to commute
around this whole facility out-
side in bad weather with paper-
work - and a lot of it's critical
paperwork," he added. "It's a
real job to keep people satisfied
and happy working here. I
do it, but I'll tell you, it's really
hard."

throughout Nassau County.
"I can't help that they built
the city of Fernandina Beach
in Nassau County, but they
did," Seagraves said. "The
Attorney General ruled that
the sheriff is the officer of the
whole county...."
Seagraves passed out a
document to commissioners
that outlined the sheriff's
duties and responsibilities,
which included a state
Attorney General's opinion
concluding "the power of the
sheriff throughout the coun-
ty is paramount and the police
should give way to the sheriff."
Seagraves also noted that
he was born in Fernandina

'Sheriff needs help in his county'
City commissioners chose not to respond Tuesday to
concerns expressed by Sheriff Tommy Seagraves, but the
owner of a downtown Fernandina Beach restaurant was not
so timid.
James Kerrigan, owner of Philly Boyz restaurant on North
Third Street, attended Tuesday night's city commission
meeting to address a planning issue but took the opportunity
to respond to Seagraves' complains about law enforcement
in the city.
Kerrigan told commissioners he had "heard rumors that
the county wants to (take over city police)," but he thought
that a bad idea.
Kerrigan, who lives in Nassau Lakes, complained that
sheriff's officers "literally took 45 minutes to respond" to a
call he made, and an hour and a half to respond to a call his
wife made.
The city "responds to their calls in five minutes," he said.
"I think the sheriff needs more help in his county" than
the city needs from the sheriff, Kerrigan said.
He also responded to Seagraves' remarks that he can
legally enter the city to provide law enforcement whenever
he wants and that city police are overlooking open drug
sales.
"If (Seagraves) knows where these drug areas are (in
the city), why doesn't he take control of it?" rather than com-
plain about it, Kerrigan asked.


iff's office had "stepped up
and solved a robbery" but
"never even got a thank-you
from (the city) agency."
Seagraves also said he "knew
where to buy drugs in
Fernandina," implying the city
police are not addressing a
problem, and that he saw a
city administrator laughing on
television about a 15-year-old


who was allegedly raped in the
city.
"I come to you tonight to
work out this situation so the
citizens don't suffer,"
Seagraves said. "I'm not God,
I'm the sheriff. You don't have
to like Tommy Seagraves, but
you have to respect the sher-
iff."

City Post office RFQ not authorized


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader

The city of Fernandina
Beach has issued a press
release stating it has not
authorized the distribution of a
request for qualifications by
the Amelia Island Fernandina
Restoration Foundation to ren-
ovate the post office on Centre
Street.
The RFQ for architectural,
engineering and design serv-
ices firm for the historic build-
ing was sent to the city earlier
this month.
According to the city's
press release, the city has not
reached an agreement with the
U.S. Postal Service regarding
acquisition of the building -
but it also says the Restoration
Foundation and "other groups"
will partner with the city in
restoration of the building if
the city commission chooses to
acquire it.
In response to the city's
press release, Susan Siegmund
of the Restoration Foundation


c'z


said in an e-mail that the foun-
dation "recognizes that at
this time the city cannot for-
mally participate in the distri-
bution of the RFQ for design
services."
"We look forward to joint
and collaborative efforts with
the city administration and its
commission in developing
plans for the adaptive reuse of
the Centre Street post office
as City Hall when the city
acquires title to the building,"
she wrote.
According to the city press
release, the U.S. Postal Service
did not accept terms of a letter
of intent from the city, but
"both parties are continuing
to negotiate an acceptable
agreement." A non-binding let-
ter of intent from the U.S.
Postal Service was accepted
by the city last April, but
according to City Attorney
Tammi Bach, the letters are
as far as negotiations have
gone.
The city also is working on

According to the Florida

Turner got out of the serv-
ice in 1947, but was recalled
to go to Korea in 1951.
"They were looking for
pilots, but they used me as a
radar controller," said Turner.
"They wanted a (former) pilot
to give them instructions they
could follow." After that,
Turner went to military
school for electronics and
radar maintenance. He ended
up staying in the military for
20 years, and then worked for
Los Angeles County as an
appraiser for 17 years.
Turner said he was disap-
pointed that the Airmen
received the Congressional
Gold Medal so late in life. In
March 2007, about 300
Tuskegee Airmen and their
widows received the medal at
a ceremony in Washington,
D.C., but Turner did not
attend.
"A lot of friends, most of
them are not alive now," said


Turner. "I was unhappy about
getting the medal so late ...
most of the guys were gone."
"I didn't go to
Washington," he said. "I did-
n't keep up with the unit.
They had meetings in August,
but I didn't go too often."
Turner did, however, receive
one of the medals.
Turner lives on Cape Cod
in the town of Cotuit, Mass.,
with his wife. He has two sons
and a daughter.
The Tuskegee Airmen
came from all over the United
States in response to a call
from the War Department to
form an all-black combat unit.
Prior to 1940, African-
Americans were barred from
flying for the U.S. Army. The
department received a large
number of applications from
men who qualified for the
highly demanding positions.
From 1941-46 nearly 1,000
pilots trained at the Tuskegee
Army Air Field in Alabama
and the group had one of the
best combat records in World
War II. They destroyed hun-

The Tuskegee Airmen were
American soldiers whose nick-

fighter squadron was activated
from 1941-1946 during World

strike against them - the color
of their skin. These loyal defend-
ers of the U.S. were also African-
Americans.
Those known as Tuskegee
Airmen accepted the test to
prove they too were part of a
nation worth fighting for. They
were dedicated, determined
young men who enlisted to
become America's first black
military airmen with a focus to
disprove the misconception that
their race lacked the intelli-
gence, skill, courage and patri-
otism to effectively fight side
by side on other continents of
the world. The color of their
skin didn't affect their strong
personal desire to serve their
country to the best of their abil-
ity, however other obstacles did
affect the quality of training
these soldiers received.
Bigotry and racism, both at
home and aboard, would see to
it that nearly 1,000 fighter pilots
would be trained as a segregat-
ed unit at an air base in
Tuskegee, Ala. Not allowed to
practice or fight with their white
counterparts, the Tuskegee
Airmen distinguished them-
selves from the rest of the fight-
er aircraft world by painting the
tails of their airplanes red, which
led to them becoming known
as the "Red Tails" or "Redtail
Angels." Later, when they
deployed overseas, they would
be known to the Luftwaffe as
the "Black Birdmen."
Prior to the Tuskegee
Airmen, no U.S. military pilot
had been of African-American
descent. In 1941 Congress
imposed the Army Air Corps to
form an all-black combat unit,
despite reluctance from the War
Department. In an effort to
eliminate the unit before it
began, the War Department set
up a system to accept only appli-
cants with high levels of flight
experience and superior edu-
cation. They expected this pol-

highly quali-
fied black
VETERAN'S men who
CORNER had previ-
ously partic-
ipated in the
Debbie Civilian Pilot
Walsh Training
Program
applied for the Army flight pro-
gram. Most were college grad-
uates or undergraduates while
others qualified through com-
prehensive academic entrance
exams. Those who possessed
the physical and mental qualifi-
cations were accepted as avia-
tion cadets to train as pilots, nav-
igators or bombardiers.
In June 1941 the Tuskegee
program officially began. Pilots
trained at the newly formed
99th Pursuit Squadron, Moton
Field, Ala., then move to nearby
Tuskegee Army Air Field. The
first aviation class began in July
1941, graduating in March 1942.
One instructor of the 99th was
the famed Lt. Daniel James, Jr.
better known to most as
"Chappie" James, who in 1975
became the first African-
American to reach the rank of
four-star general.
Enlisted members of the pro-
gram trained in career fields
necessary to support Army Air
Corps flying squadrons and
ground support units. With lit-
tle backing from command-level
echelons and constantly tested
by racial animosity, engine
mechanics, armament special-
ists, radio repairmen, parachute
riggers, control tower opera-
tors, policemen and adminis-
trative clerks achieved skill-level
expertise. This venture of train-
ing an all-black contingent of
fighting soldiers would be know
in the history books as the
"Tuskegee Experiment."
Once the group was ready
for combat their first assign-
ment was the North African
Campaign. The 99th's first com-
bat mission flown with P-40s
was in the Mediterranean in
preparation for the Allied inva-
sion of Sicily in July 1943.
During this campaign they also
flew P-39s and P-47s and
received two Distinguished Unit
Citations. In July 1944 they
switched aircraft to the P-51 and
transferred to the 332nd Fighter
Group.
The 332nd earned an
impressive combat record and
by war's end had substantiated
its worthiness. They were cred-
ited with shooting down 109
Luftwaffe aircraft, sinking an
Italian destroyer and destroy-
ing numerous enemy fuel
dumps, trucks and trains.
During World War II the


squadron flew approximately
15,000 sorties and Tuskegee
Airmen were awarded several
Silver Stars, 95 Distinguished
Flying Crosses, 8 Purple
Hearts, 14 Bronze Stars and 744
Air Medals. In all, 992 pilots
were trained from 1940 to 1946.
445 deployed overseas and 150
Airmen lost their lives in acci-
dents or combat.
Tuskegee Army Air Field
continued to train new airmen
until 1946, with women entering
the program in several support
fields.
Outstanding accomplish-
ments by black soldiers influ-
enced the newly formed U.S.
Air Force plans to integrate
units in 1947. In 1948, by exec-
utive order, President Harry
Truman brought about the
beginning to the end of racial
segregation in the military.
Tuskegee Airmen found them-
selves in high demand through-
out the newly established U.S.
Air Force, and in 1949 took first
place in the annual Air Force
National Fighter Gunnery Meet
in Las Vegas.
President George W. Bush
presented the Congressional
Gold Medal, one of the highest
civilian awards, to about 300
Tuskegee Airmen on March 29,
2007, in Washington, D.C. The
decoration is awarded to an indi-
vidual who performs an out-
standing act of service to the
security, prosperity, and nation-
al interest of the United States.
Throughout the years, there
have been numerous dedica-
tions to the Tuskegee Airmen in
the U.S. In August 2008 the
main artery into Hartsfield-
Jackson International Airport,
Atlanta, was renamed, honor-
ing their contributions.
There is also a national his-
torical site dedicated to the
Tuskegee Airmen of World War
II. It's located at Moton Field,
Ala., about 50 miles from
Montgomery, and managed by
the National Park Service. For
more information visit www.nps.
gov/tuin.
Alabama Gov, Bob Riley, in a
statement honoring the
Tuskegee Airmen, said, "You
are proof that no race has a
monopoly on excellence, that
no one group has a singular
claim on heroism."
It's estimated about 119
pilots and 211 ground personnel
still live from the original mem-
bers numbering 992 pilots and
approximately 15,000 support
personnel. What better time to
highlight the honorable and
heroic contributions this group
of loyal, fighting soldiers than
right after their 38th Annual
Convention held this August.

A Yulee businessman was
arrested Tuesday when the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
shut down a high-tech marijua-
na growing operation he was
allegedly operating out of his
home.
VIP Taxi Group of Nassau
County owner John Wayne
Davis, 41, 85288 Blackmon
Road, was charged with culti-
vation of marijuana and two
counts of possession of drug
paraphernalia.
According to the arrest
report, Davis "freely admitted"
growing marijuana for person-
al use. He led a detective down
a hallway in his home and
showed him a trap door cov-

the report stated.
A detective said he also
found 19 wooden and glass mar-
ijuana pipes in Davis' kitchen
and plants were also found in a
bedroom closet.
According to a press release,
the plants' street value was esti-
mated at $1,000 apiece and
detectives described the setup
as "fancy" and "the best they'd
ever seen."
In a separate arrest report


for Davis, two sheriff's detec-
tives stated they conducted a
trash pull of two garbage bags
next to the roadway at Davis'
address July 22, which yielded
marijuana stems and leaves, two
marijuana cigarettes and sev-
eral paper towels with numer-
ous marijuana seeds in them.
Davis was released on his
own recognizance late Tuesday
per Circuit Court Judge Robert
Foster, according to the report.
VIP Taxi Group of Nassau
County LLC was organized in
2007 with John R. Crawford of
Jacksonville listed on state doc-
uments as the registered agent
and PaulAudet and Davis listed
as managing members/man-
agers. Audet, owner of The Surf

the entire grouping will seem to slide down

My study of all of this mnemonic trickery
has led me to realize that each item in the clut-

"Each customer is a partner and friend in our business

All customers deserve the same attention and respect."
Tim Crawford

"Being a family owned business, it was with great pride in 1983 I
decided to join my family in continuing my father's longstanding
tradition of quality jewelry and superior customer service," said Tim
Crawford, owner of Crawford Jewelers at 1472 Sadler Road in Fernandina
Beach.
The tradition began in 1957 when his parents used their $500
savings to open their first store in Blackshear, Ga. In 1971, a second
store opened in Waycross, where Crawford's mother and eldest brother,
Bruce, a master watchmaker, still work. The Blackshear store was sold
in 1981 and in 1985 a store was opened in Douglas, Ga., run by brother
Gary. The senior Crawford passed away in 2000. Tim Crawford opened
his Fernandina Beach store in 2007. Crawford, who is a graduate of
Jewelry Arts and a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute
of America (GIA), also is a Bench Jeweler with 26 years of experience. Staff
includes Regina Comrie, whose interest in gemstones started in her
native Brazil.
A full service jewelry store, Crawford Jewelers sells new fine
jewelry, provides on-site expert jewelry repair services, ring resizing,
custom jewelry works, including diamond and other gemstone settings,
re-mountings and appraisals.
Crawford said he finds it very rewarding to see the smile on his
customers' faces when he is able to help turn their dreams into reality.

enters our store, either to replace a watch

VIEWPOINT/DR. JILL BIDEN/WASHINGTON, D.C.


Commun

Every year around this time, I am struck by
the growing number of college rankings avail-
able to prospective college students. While
these reports can be helpful, many of them fail
to include an option that nearly half of all U.S.
undergraduate students choose to pursue -
and one I know to be the single best path to
opportunity for millions of Americans: commu-
nity college.
I have been an educator for 28 years, and I
have taught in the community college system
for more than 16 of them. I don't have to look
any further than my classroom to see the
power of community colleges to change lives.
For years I have welcomed students to my
classroom from many different educational,
economic and cultural backgrounds, and seen
how the community college system puts them
on the same path of opportunity.
I have seen how community colleges fill
important gaps: granting two-year degrees,
teaching English to immigrants, providing
vocational skills training and certification and
teaching basic academic skills to those who
may not yet be ready to pursue a four-year
degree.
It's also hard to ignore the financial advan-
tages. In today's challenging economy, commu-
nity colleges are an increasingly affordable way
for students from middle-class families to com-
plete the first two years of a baccalaureate
degree before moving on to a four-year univer-
sity.
From a policy perspective, community col-
leges make sense; from an economic perspec-
tive, they make sense. But I am a teacher, and
my experience with community colleges is per-
sonal. People sometimes ask me why I choose
to teach at one and why I have continued to


ty colleges
teach since moving to Washington, D.C., I'm
always surprised by the question because there
was never a doubt in my mind that I would stay
in the classroom. The reason is simple: The
students are inspiring.
Three out of four community college stu-
dents - and some of my best students - work
while attending school. In my classes, I have
men and women who rush to class at the end
of a busy workday. I have single parents who
come to school in the evening, weary from a
long day yet eager to create a brighter future
with more options for their children.
Many of my students work hard and dream
of attending a four-year university, and the
community college is a great gateway. They are
determined to be the first in their family to
attend college. I see recently unemployed
workers who are looking for new skills in
growing fields like health care, teaching, infor-
mation technology and green technology -
some of the fastest-growing fields in America
and the rest of the world.
In the United States there are almost 1,200
community colleges among our 4,100 public
and private institutions of higher education. All
together, community colleges serve 11.5 mil-
lion students.
They are flexible, offering specialized train-
ing programs to address workforce shortages
and often partnering with local businesses to
meet the emerging needs of their regions.
Some states have programs that allow for
admission to four-year schools after two suc-
cessful years at a community college or at the
very least provide for the transfer of credits.
Given the high cost of most four-year institu-
tions and the relatively low cost of community
colleges, these types of programs can make a


inspire

big difference for financially strapped families.
It's easy to see why community colleges
have seen the fastest growth among U.S. high-
er education institutions over the last three
decades. President Barack Obama recently
announced an investment called the American
Graduation Initiative that will allow community
colleges to meet the needs of rapidly growing
enrollment by funding programs to increase
graduation rates, make courses more relevant
to business needs and strengthen ties to high
schools and other colleges and universities.
All Americans deserve an opportunity to
receive the best education possible - not just
through 12th grade, but all the way through
college, too. By supporting community col-
leges and by encouraging them to improve
their graduation rates, the Obama-Biden
administration is helping millions of Americans
gain skills and confidence to lift the nation out
of hard times. I can't think of a better invest-
ment.
I have often said that community colleges
are one of America's best-kept secrets, which is
why you won't find them on many of this year's
I .. i college" rankings. But they are essential
to our nation's higher education mission and
uniquely able to address the needs of our com-
munities. Just as important, they often provide
an education to students who would not other-
wise enroll in a four-year college or university.
So to anyone considering applying to col-
lege, I encourage you to take a look at a com-
munity college near you. You might be sur-
prised at the opportunities awaiting you there.

ate in education from the University of

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Bicycle etiquette
As a bike rider, I applaud the campaign in
recent years urging autos to "share the road"
with bicyclists. But unfortunately some riders
have taken this to mean "anything goes."
Recently, I and other drivers were waiting our
turns at the four-way stop at Jasmine and Citrona.
When the car to my left took its turn, I was next
and started into the intersection. That's when a
bicyclist came tearing into the intersection at full
speed from the left.
I slammed on my brakes and tooted my horn.
That's when the cyclist turned his bike, assumed
a threatening stance in the middle of the road and
started screaming, "Bikes always have the right
of way."
Well, my friend, let me quote the true rules
from floridabicycle.org:
"Bicyclists have the same rights to the road-
ways, and must obey the same traffic laws, as the
operators of other vehicles. These laws include
stopping for stop signs and red lights."
You didn't stop. You didn't hesitate. You did-
n't have the right-of-way. You were wrong. And
someday -when someone is paying less attention
than I was - you may be worse than wrong.
Be careful. Learn the real rules of the road.
And, I hope, teach your children them as well.

Killing the black bear
I saw the picture of the corpse of the beauti-
ful black bear that had been killed in cold blood
by the smiling Georgia hunter (Aug. 12). I can just
hope that he will reflect about the magnificence
of this creature when he "admired" the remains
in his home. The world was rendered a much less
wonderful place when this "hunter" gratuitously
took this creature to his death.

Reform health care
I have been seeing them for 10 years. They
come to the Nassau County Department of Health
clinic or the Barnabas Good Samaritan Clinic
with untreated high blood pressure, undiagnosed
heart disease, diabetes and other undertreated
medical issues. They are construction workers,
landscapers, restaurant workers or houseclean-
ers - working but without health insurance and
access to medical care. Others have lost jobs and
a few are too sick to work.
They find their way to these low-cost or free
clinics and see volunteer doctors. The clinic visit
may be free but the medications and testing
required to diagnose and treat their problems
certainly are not. The care they get is fragment-
ed and does not address preventive care or well-
ness.
We live in a generous community that does
many fine things for the less fortunate among us.
And I think we live in a generous country. Why
can't we find a way to provide basic health care
to these folks right here on Amelia Island and the
45-50 million other uninsured people in the USA?
Why can't we make health care better and less
expensive for those of us who do have medical
insurance? Why can't we make sure that those of
us who lose a job or get sick do not lose our
health insurance for just that reason?
We have a president who is asking our
Congress and us to step up and do something
bold about this problem that has been recog-
nized as needing action for years. I think we need
to press on and not get bogged down in all the nar-
row-minded, unfounded noise about "death pan-
els" and "socialized medicine." We need to
encourage our leaders to find a way to get this
done. So as a physician I strongly favor health care
reform. This reform should:
1. Extend medical insurance coverage to all
Americans.
2. Emphasize preventive care and wellness.
3. Improve quality and reduce costs. This can
be done by changing reimbursement for provid-
ed services to a system that rewards outcomes
(better health), not quantity or volume of services.
And yes, I think that if meaningful health care
reform cannot be paid for by cost savings, that
well-to-do Americans should pay slightly higher
taxes to cover it. I want to live in a community and
a country that provides good quality health care
to all its citizens.

Water damage
I had to contact Mosquito Control to come
over to our house because of all the water; when
they came over they couldn't even stand in the
yard. They're sending a truck over here to do
extra spraying because of the issues we have
had with the water coming down the road on
North 15th Street and Highland Drive.
It seems that my issues are not important;
this really upsets me as a resident of Fernandina
Beach, how I get treated. I've begged for things
to be done and I just get shoved to the back of the
city pile. Here we are in the storm season and the
mayor and the city manager and city commis-
sioners have turned their back to my problem.
I was born and raised in this town. My father
worked 38 years to ITT Rayonier; my mom
worked in the school food service for 3-plus
years. They chose Fernandina Beach for what it
is, a good place to raise us kids. My brother and
I were born, bred and raised here because my
parents believed in the Fernandina Beach way.
I am now embarrassed to stand up for
Fernandina Beach any more.
I have not seen the mayor, city manager or any
city commissioner come back and ask about my
concerns. I want something done. There is anoth-
er way that this water can be kept out of my yard
by building a berm and a speed berm in my drive-
way. I've been told by other city employees they
did this for this residence a few years back.
So I hope to see someone at my front door get
a hand on this water that's pushing us out our
home.

Dogs need help too
This is in response to the recent pleas for
help and land for abandoned and abused cats
(Aug. 14). Cats are not the only creatures out
there that are II . i, ..id or maliciously abused by
people. I have seen many cases where other ani-
mals suffer the same treatment. For instance,
just recently was a case in Glynn County, Ga.,
where a lady had beaten innocent puppies to
death with a sledgehammer. How about the
many dogs that suffer a slow painful death tied up
in someone's backyard from starvation or heart-
worm disease. I once fostered a dog that had his
entire body wrapped in barbed wire. Dogs are in
need of help as well!
I personally hope if anyone chooses to donate
money or land for a cat sanctuary that they make
sure this land will be manned. I do not mean the
once per week feedings that happen in most feral
cat colonies. I have personally experienced many
feral cat colonies that have gone wrong.
Emaciated, injured and diseased cats killing birds,
squirrels, rabbits, possums and raccoons. What
about these creatures the cats are killing? Are
their lives less meaningful than the cats that kill
them?
I am in no way a "cat hater." I have five feline
children of my own that live inside my house.
Let's face it, all creatures need help.
Anyone interested in helping abused and aban-
doned dogs and puppies may contact 8 C's Big
Dog Rescue, Inc., at (904) 716-0309, e-mail big-
dogrescue@windstream.net. We are a nonprofit
charitable organization. Donations are tax

Taxes, kayaks, fishing piers
I simply must comment on former city com-
missioner Ron Sapp's article, "New taxes, new
fees - for what?" (Aug. 12).
In his article, Mr. Sapp refers to himself as a
"practical liberal." He goes on to say that he
would like to see a canoe/kayak launch on Egan's
Creek and a fishing pier extending into the
Atlantic Ocean. Mr. Sapp also states that, "We
have an extensive parks and recreation program
in Fernandina Beach, one that sets us apart from
most cities in Florida and I don't mind paying
taxes to support it."
To understand Mr. Sapp's point of view, one
must consider this: Mr. Sapp has enjoyed a long
career in public education and as a city commis-
sioner. He is now or soon will receive two gov-
ernment (read taxpayer-funded) pensions.
According to the Nassau County Property
Appraiser records, the fair market value of Mr.
Sapp's 2,637-square-foot-home is $401,364.
However, since he has had a longstanding home-


CAM CARDOW/THE OTTAWA CITIZEN


stead exemption, the taxable value is only $36,185.
That means that Mr. Sapp's annual property tax
is $705, of which $12 per month goes to the city
of Fernandina Beach. Is it practical and/or liberal
to draw two government pensions and expect to
build a kayak launch and a fishing pier all for
$12 per month?
Perhaps Mr. Sapp should consider dropping
his homestead exemption, thereby increasing
his annual property tax from $705 to $7,184.
Welcome to the painful, real world of property tax,
Mr. Sapp.
According to DataQuick Information Systems,
the median sales price of homes in Nassau
County dropped 18.4 percent in the second quar-
ter of 2009 when compared to the same quarter
last year. The market tracking company Trulia
announced that for the third month in a row,
Jacksonville led all metro areas in the United
States with the most residential real estate price
reductions.
The national foreclosure rate is up 32 percent
from a year ago and national bankruptcy filings
surged 35 percent over last year. In July, initial job-
less claims rose to 558,000. Despite this gloomy
news, Nassau County and Fernandina Beach
commissioners recently voted to increase our
property taxes.
I have never met Mr. Sapp and personally I
don't have an axe to grind with him. However, his
point of view regarding publicly funded projects
and services seems to be shared by at least some
of our current commissioners. Paying $705 per
year in property tax and receiving two govern-
ment funded pensions is not the norm. Most of
us won't receive a government pension and we
pay more than $705 in property tax. We are
tapped out. We need to reduce government
spending by streamlining services and reducing
non-essential projects.
If you are interested in what property your
local elected officials own and the tax they pay, go
to www.nassauflpa.com and search their name.
There is an online calculator that will estimate the
tax. You may be surprised at what you find.

Parking and taxes
Ron Sapp's article opposing parking fees while
doing a Jeff Foxworthy imitation of "Here's Your
Sign" was confusing to me. Talking about
Fantasyland at City Hall along with "not in
Fernandina Beach" made me wonder if he was
concerned that Key West's Fantasy Fest was
coming to town. I had seen an ad on the Internet
for a local bed and breakfast being advertised as
"gay friendly" and I snickered as that is not how
I would describe Fernandina. In spite of having
a large gay and lesbian population here, with the
exception of a few most are deep in the prover-
bial closet along with the atheists and anyone
else who is different, so I doubt we will be invad-
ed by bare-cheeked leather chaps anytime soon.
So I guess his main message was the thought of
charging for parking is morally reprehensible in
some way.


Don't get me wrong, I like Ron Sapp and was
annoyed to see him criticized as though having
held office here he is no longer allowed an opin-
ion and though I'm a "failed" candidate I get to dis-
agree because I didn't give up my citizenship
either. In fact we often agree about goals but not
always on how to get there so his position on this
subject surprised me. He has long said he felt the
whole island should be under city government
and I agree but the problem is just wishing it
won't make it happen, you cannot force an annex-
ation, they would have to want to join us. It would
have to be shown that it is a benefit to be part of
the city, to lower taxes for all of us, to have pre-
ferred access to these amenities. It seems our sta-
tus as a county seat is being chipped away with
more of the functions going to Yulee. So what is
the advantage of being a city resident?
I am not claiming to have all the answers but
I think we should open our minds about the sub-
ject and think about it. We pay the taxes for the
public amenities while those outside the com-
munity receive equal benefit. One person sug-
gested they would go to Starbucks for a coffee
rather than go downtown to fish out coins for a
meter, yet Starbucks pays property tax too. We
rely on property tax and we all pay them, includ-
ing the non-income producing residential prop-
erty.
For locals doing daily business it would be
inconvenient so I think there should be parking
stickers for city residents that are issued along
with renewing license plates at the cost of the
sticker to put inside the front window, no fumbling
for coins for a city resident. I doubt seriously
that a tourist coming to town would think twice
about dropping coins in a meter anymore than I
do when I go into downtown Jacksonville. I'm just
glad to find a spot. Maybe free parking down the
side streets would push more traffic to those
locations. I think it should be kept simple not
gating main beach and the downtown with kiosks
but see nothing wrong with giving preference
to locals while collecting income to help support
the community.
Our government has proven they will get
their income one way or another and we demand
continuing services, police, fire and emergency.
I and my neighbors are grateful for the long-
needed repaving of our street that flooded in
every thunderstorm. Taxes are a necessity, how-
ever property tax is a particular burden. Sales
taxes you can adjust your spending with the
exception of needed products, income tax is a per-
centage but when your income goes down you
have no choice with whatever burden they apply
to your property. Even with homesteading they
go up and children inherit property but cannot
afford the new assessment that results. Any stu-
dent of Thomas Jefferson understands that a
large property-holding middle class is key to
democracy. In my opinion our tax base should be
changed at the state level, property tax elimi-
nated, but here at home we can only work with-
in the guidelines that are allowed and I think it is
time to get creative.

Back-to-school bash for students


We teach our children the
road to success is not
straight. There are curves
called failure, loops called
confusion, bumps called friends, red
lights called enemies and caution lights
called family, but with determination,
perseverance, faith and a leader called
Jesus, they will always be successful.
Many students from around Nassau
County came together for a back-to-
school rally and talent show at First
Missionary Baptist Church last
Thursday evening.
Our young people performed to the
glory and honor of God with prayer,
singing, acting, recitations, modeling
and dancing. They sang songs such as
"This Little Light of Mine," "I am a C,"
"Read Your Bible," "Lord's Army,"
"Fired up" and "This is the Way I Praise
the Lord."
Prayer was given by Ashanti McNeil,
the welcome by Wendell McHahee and
the service of the Lord began. The
guest speaker came from First New
Zion Missionary Baptist Church,
Jacksonville. Minister DeWayne Brown,


inspired our young
people to be leaders
and not followers, but if
you must follow, follow
S Christ, for he is truly
looking for bold sol-
diers in his army.
Some of the best
dancers were Shanice
Sanders, Arlene
NOW AND Jordan, Jaloy and Aha
THEN Evans, Ashanti McNeil,
Destane Karim and
Ashton Harris. Poems
Maybelle were by Jalay Evans
Kirkland and Shanaya
Thompson. Mime was
by Darien Bolden Jr. Modeling was
done by Daysha Green, twins Reggina
and Reggine Alexander, Ashanta
McNeil, Jaheim Bugsby, Destane
Karim, Alexus Blue, Arlene Thompson
and Curtisa Collins. As you can see, our
young people have many talents and
enjoyed sharing them all.
Pastor Bolden introduced our rapper
for the evening, all the way from Bethel
Institutional Baptist Church in


Jacksonville, 7J, Front and Center
Entertainment. He rocked the church
side to side, front to back, very much
enjoyed by everyone present.
Backpacks filled with supplies were
given to each student present, covering
all grades in school. Shawn Hubbard
worked hard to make this happen.
Pastor and church anniversary
began Thursday night, continued Friday
night and closed out Sunday afternoon
at First Church, celebrating 149 years
for the church and 12 for Pastor Bolden.
Please join in thanking God for all he
has done to and for us. Services are 7
p.m. nightly and 4 p.m. Sunday. Hope to
see you there.
Birthday wishes to Julia Walker,

Evolutionists sometimes quarrel about such
seemingly well-designed defenses, because it isn't
readily apparent how such a complicated system
could evolve in small incremental steps Perhaps
the opposition between creationism and evolution is
unnecessary Could not God have created a universe
in which evolution works to continually create new
species? Many biologists have thought so, and thus
they see their work as unraveling the incredible and
ongoing mystery of creation When we learn something
new about nature, in the
process we get a glimpse into

FRIDAY, August 21, 2009/News-Leader


RELIGION


Science, faith and God living on the inside


Crunch, crack, bend - as we
watched, it collapsed. The
look on our teacher's face
said it all. He knew it was
going to happen. The classroom
filled with wonder as the object in
front of us continued to fold and
crumble.
Of all the high school classes I
took, science was my favorite.
Though I was a bit distracted by
social issues, and as a result not the
greatest student, anytime we got to
engage in a science project, I was all
over it. From dissecting frogs to cre-
ating flammable gases, I found it all
fascinating. Nothing, however,
caught my attention quite like the
day I watched the steel one-gallon
can fold into a twisted mass right in
front of my eyes. Nobody was even


touching it.
Now please
don't try this at
home, but here's
how it worked. Our
. teacher took an
empty one-gallon
metal can and
washed it out thor-
oughly. With the lid
PULPIT off he placed the
NOTES can in a special
holder and then put
a small Bunsen
Pastor burner under it and
Rob Goyette began heating it up.
Once it was good
and hot, he carefully screwed the lid
back on and shut the burner off. The
results were astounding. Suddenly,
as we all stared at it, the hot can col-


lapsed. It was as if some huge invisi-
ble creature had come into the room,
grabbed the can in its hand, and
began crushing it. I'm not talking
about putting a few little dents in it.
I'm talking about crushing it.
Our teacher, being the good
teacher that he was, seized the
moment. "Here's how it works," he
said, enjoying our undivided atten-
tion. "By heating up the can, all the
air on the inside rises out the lid.
Once the lid is back on, and the heat
turned off, no air can come back in.
The result - the atmospheric pres-
sure on the outside of the can is
greater than what's on the inside and
the can caves in.
Before that time, I never under-
stood what atmospheric pressure
was. Now I know. Not just through


my science class but through life
itself. Have you ever noticed how
when life's circumstances heat up
and all our inner strength seems to
leave our bodies, how the pressures
on the outside can literally begin to
crush us? I have.
Thankfully, God has left us with a
remedy. The Bible is very clear. If we
acknowledge our need for a savior,
and invite Jesus into our heart to be
Lord of our lives, He has promised to
take up His residence on the inside
of us. The wonderful thing is that
when life heats up, He doesn't leave.
To me that's awesome.
Think about it. When all of life is
crushing down around you, if you've
invited Jesus into your heart, there's
no reason to fear. The presence of
God on the inside is greater than the


pressures of life on the outside.
Sure, I know that even good
church going people can crumble
under the weight of difficult circum-
stances, but I guarantee you it's
never because God has forsaken
them. A more likely reason is
because the place in their life that
belonged to God was somehow filled
up with other things. That, by the
way, is not a word of correction to
you who are reading this, but rather
a public confession from my own life.
Either way, the message of hav-
ing God, the creator of all things,
dwelling on the inside of you by His
Spirit, is both intimate and essential
to having a life of peace and victory.

between $15,000 and $41,000
to afford a Nassau Habitat
home being built in
Fernandina Beach.
Nassau Habitat has just
completed its 25th affordable


home. Families are selected
for these homes without
regard to race, color, national
origin, religion, sex, family sta-
tus or disability.
As part of a non-profit
Christian ministry, Nassau
Habitat works to eliminate
inadequate housing in Nassau
County, one home at a time.
Homes are built largely by vol-
unteers working alongside
future Habitat families.
Local businesses also sup-
port Nassau Habitat by dis-
counting or donating new
materials and labor. These
efforts all help keep down the
cost of a Nassau Habitat home.

Yulee's Cassidy w


BETH JONES
News Leader

Josh Cassidy, who led the
county in hitting with a .452 bat-
ting average last season, is the
first Yulee High School base-
ball to sign to play on the next
level.
Cassidy, 18, will play next
spring at Hiram College in
Hiram, Ohio, just south of
Cleveland. It's a Division III
four-year school, so Cassidy
won't be playing on scholar-
ship. But he did secure aca-
demic grants set aside for
Hiram athletes.
"I was offered by a bunch
of other places ... but they
couldn't match what Hiram
did," Cassidy said.
Cassidy was an all-county
selection his senior season and
was honorable mention the two
prior seasons. Along with the
.452 batting average, he had 33
hits with six RBIs, scored 27
runs and had an on-base aver-
age of .565 his final season with
the Hornets.
"He was definitely one of the
hardest workers," YHS Coach
Will Minor said. "You could
always find him in the cages.


Josh Cassidy at bat this
spring for the Hornets.

"He didn't have a whole lot
of power, but he was always on
base somehow. He's strong, but
not real big (5-foot-6, 165
pounds). He worked really hard
to make himself the best play-
er he could be."
Cassidy started playing T-
ball at the tender age of 3 and
continued through high school,
playing junior varsity his fresh-
man year at Fernandina Beach

before transferring to Yulee ^

ii ,.: tough decision, but
I eventually decided on Yulee,"
Cassidy said.
Cassidy logged time at
shortstop his junior year, but
he was the Hornets' starting
second baseman last season.
"He was like a field rat,"
Minor said. "He's usually one of
the first ones to get there and
always the last to leave. At the
end of last year, I said, 'Why
don't I just give you a key?"'
Minor said a couple of Yulee
players have walked on at jun- .,',! i coi
ior colleges but Cassidy is the
first to sign. M Uin.wo
"He's our first player to get 4,& o4 pi
an opportunity to play at the
next level," Minor said. "Getting
a spot is the biggest thing, espe-
cially for baseball, because they
don't have a lot of scholarship
money, even the big schools."
Cassidy said a highlight of
his senior season with the
Hornets was the week the team
took on Bishop Snyder, Orange Josh Cassidy, a recent grace

Sailing club holds


annual Bikini Race


JOHN BURNS
For the News-Leader

The Amelia Island Sailing
Club held its annual Bikini Race
Aug. 15. So named, not for the
attire worn, but because a
female crew-member must
steer the boat throughout the
race.
Race committee chairman
Joe Bowen established an 11-
mile course starting just west of
Fort Clinch at red buoy 2. The
boats headed east towards the
ocean passing buoy YF to star-
board (right), then onto red 18,
where they turned and head-
ed back into Cumberland
Sound, completing the remain-
der of the course, rounding five
other buoys before passing the
finish line at red buoy 10 just off
the downtown marina.
As usual, the start was quite
a sight as the competing boats,
weighing up to 16,000 pounds,
jockeyed for position to be the
first boat across the line.
Sometimes only a couple of feet
apart, the captains could be
heard shouting commands,
winches were heard turning
and sails flapped as the boats
approached the start.
When the starting gun
sounded (OK it was only a
horn), Flamingo and Sunday
Mornin' Jazz crossed the line
abreast of each other. The rest
of the fleet was bunched just
behind the leaders. As with
every race, after the boats
crossed the starting line, they
spread out as each captain


chooses a direction, allowing
for tacking and current, that he
thought would get them to the
next buoy first.
Mother Nature did her
share by supplying adequate
winds to propel the fleet at
upwards of 7 knots. Three
boats, Baby Blooz, Sunday
Mornin' Jazz and Flamingo,
took an early lead and, although
challenged throughout the
race, they held onto their lead.
Mast Confusion and Aquilla
fought a duel through five
marks, sometimes less than six
feet separating them as they
turned around the buoys.
The race became even more
challenging as the boats head-
ed south from Cumberland
Island towards the finish line
at the downtown marina. As it
turned out, the course, incom-
ing tide and wind direction
combined to force the boats to
navigate through the shallows
just west of the outer marker.
Baby Blooz ,which had been
clearly in the lead, suddenly
ran aground. The crew lost pre-
cious minutes and its com-
manding lead getting the boat
free.
In the end, Flamingo, cap-
tained by Jennifer Bowen, took
first Place; Baby Blooz, with
Capt. Marianne Gruber at the
helm, took second; and Sunday
Mornin' Jazz with Capt. Barba-
ra Sokolowski took third Place.
Anyone interested in the
Amelia Island Sailing Club
should contact Commodore
Charles Steinkamp at 583-3156.

from the bow of my charter
boat, I watched the sail swim
right up to the live pogy, kill
the pogy with its bill, then
swallow the bait in a matter of
a few seconds."
Hendrix quickly handed
the deeply bent kingfish rod
to his charter client, Tim
Poschel, and it was fight on.
During the 45-minute battle,
the sailfish spent most of the
time jumping and actually
"tail-walking" on the water to
the pleasure of the "Heavy
Hitter" fishing party.
After the beautiful sailfish
was unhooked, revived and
released, Poschel hooked an
even larger game fish while
fishing on the bottom with
live pogies. The fight lasted
some 30 minutes before an
eight-foot tiger shark bit right
through the large saltwater
hook.
Closer to shore, Hendrix
reports jetty fishing is excel-
lent for red drum at the tip of
the St. Marys south jetty
rocks during the incoming
tide.
"Most of the reds are run-
ning in the 30-inch category,"
he said. "While they are fun
to catch and release for our
charter clients, very few of
the reds are falling in the
legal slot limit, which is 18-27-
inches."

ROBERT WEINTRAUB
For the News Leader
Tm e casual observer will see
passing through Cedar and
Third streets in the next 12
months five women swim-
mers remembering their lifetimes
of frolics and foibles, a woman des-
perate to improve her life trying to
learn from an alcoholic teacher, a
mismatched pair of squabbling
bachelors, a British army officer
protecting his daughters from a
band of pirates, three strong-willed
women battling over a troubled girl
and a Sherlock Holmes clone hunt-
ing down the person trying to mur-
der him.
They are the lead actors in
Amelia Community Theatre's 29th

Sean Costello.
Culled from his three commer-

For the News-Leader
The Gullah/Geechee Nation
International Music & Movement
Festival will close at American Beach
on Sunday.
This historic three-day authentic
celebration of Gullah/Geechee cul-
ture begins today in Savannah, Ga.
The major day of the event will be
Saturday in Brunswick, Gs., at
Howard Coffin Park. This will be the
departure point for participants as
they take a historic crossing from
Georgia into Florida as many of their
Gullah/Geechee elders and ances-
tors did seeking work and a new life
along the port in Fernandina's "Old
Town."
Many historic churches in
Florida were placed there as
Gullah/Geechees migrated across
the river from Kingsland, Ga., to
worship each week. Just as those
churches were built on sacred
ground, this year's festival will be the
foundation for next year's event,
which will go further south in
Florida.
On Sunday at 11 a.m. the partici-
pants will depart Brunswick, Ga.,
together in a historic procession into
Nassau County. A praise house serv-
ice will be held at Mt. Olive Church
in Nassauville beginning at 12:30
p.m. After the service, the buses will
continue a tour through Yulee,
O'Neil and Amelia Island.
The closing of the event will be a
day in honor and tribute to Gullah/
Geechee sacred ancestor, MaVynee
Betsch, "The Beach Lady." The Peck
Ensemble and Queen Quet,
Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee
Nation, are scheduled to do presen-
tations at 3 p.m. at the base of the
historic "Nana" sand dune that is
now officially a part of the U.S.
National Park Service system. Those
that intend to come to the tribute are
encouraged to arrive at the beach by
2:30 p.m. The event is open to the
public.
The founders of the event, Queen
Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Gee-
chee Nation and Kwame Sha of All
Mobile Productions, invite the com-
munity to come out and share in this
special tribute to honor one of the
first inductees into the Gullah/Gee-
chee Nation's Hall of Fame.
The Beach Lady was among the
first inducted and honored at last
year's event in Charleston, S.C.
Seven more inductees will be hon-
ored on Saturday at noon at Howard
Coffin Park in Brunswick, Ga.

medieval castle of 1920's actor

BLUES Continued from 1B
his hand-picked band that
was clearly in precise sync
with what he wanted to
achieve, both in the studio
and in live situations. A telling
example of that are the three
live tracks, recorded in
Chicago, Ill., and Marquette,
Mich., which show a band in
perfect lockstep with its
leader.
Costello's performances
on these tracks are astonish-
ing, especially his transcen-
dent guitar solo on "Motor
Head Baby."
In 2002, Blues Revue pub-
lished a cover story on
Costello, calling him "the top
contender to be the next
blues star ... and soon."
Costello was still headed on
that path when he was tragi-
cally taken away from his
family, friends and fans at
such a young age. Sean's
Blues is a great reminder of
just how special Costello was
and how much great music
he left behind as a lasting
legacy.

revival has assembled for a
weekend of relaxation. But
someone is trying to murder
Gillette and he suspects it is
one of his guests. Intrepid,
eccentric and wildly romantic,
Gillette plans to solve the case
himself, A la Sherlock Holmes.
The play zestfully trots out all
the classic murder mystery
devices: shots in the dark,
darkly held secrets, deathbed
letters, guns and knives and
bottles bashed over the head,
ghosts and hiders behind cur-
tains and misbegotten suspi-
cions.
Season tickets are now
available, either for all six pro-
ductions ($90), or for five
shows of the subscriber's
choice ($75). A season ticket
saves money, provides pre-

Michael Rothschild started
Landslide Records in 1981 in
Atlanta. Since then he has had
the privilege of recording and
releasing a number of roots
oriented Southern acts, includ-
ing Col. Bruce Hampton, blues
rocker Tinsley Ellis, jam band
icons Widespread Panic, R&B
shouter Nappy Brown, The
Derek Trucks Band, Dave
Bartholomew, Webb Wilder,
Jim Quick & Coastline, and
the late Sean Costello.
In addition to his experi-
ence with the record label and
an associated music publishing

years working in motion pic-
ture production, distribution
and marketing, from which he
retired in 2005. He now con-
centrates solely on music busi-

residing in Atlanta, he and his
wife moved to Fernandina

up in Jacksonville, where the
50s and 60s music scene was
quite fruitful and educational.
Northeast Florida is the best,
and it's great being close to the
ocean again."

FA Man Wakes Up...9


A man wakes up in the morning after

sleeping on an advertised mattress,

under an advertised blanket,

in advertised pajamas.

He will bathe in an advertised shower,

wash with advertised soap,

shave with an advertised razor,

drink advertised coffee after

his advertised juice and

put on advertised clothes and accessories.

He will ride to work in an advertised car,

sit at an advertised workstation,

utilize an advertised computer and

write with an advertised pen.

Yet this man hesitates to advertise

saying advertising does not pay.

Finally, when his unadvertised

business goes under,

L. he will then advertise it for sale.
