seems like in many places along A1A,

to say that A1A is one of the most

"It affects tourism, public safety,"
said Larry Williams, Adkins' legisla-

Nassau residents work outside of the

and rip currents.
higher tax rate
or less spending?
Nassau County Commissioners are
still wrestling with whether to raise
taxes to support additional spending in
the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1.
Debate arose again among com-
missioners Monday over whether to
raise the county's property tax rate in
next year's budget. At a budget work-
shop meeting, Commissioner Mike
Boyle proposed some spending -
including contributions to non-profit
groups and repairs to the judicial
annex - that could require an increase
in millage from this year's rate of 7.23.
The commission, by a 3-2 vote, set
its maximum rate at a higher 7.644
mills Aug. 10, but Commissioner
Danny Leeper and Chair Barry
Holloway reiterated their support for
the lower tax rate.
The first of two public hearings
on the county's 2009-10 budget is
scheduled at 7 p.m. Sept. 14 at
the James S. Page Governmental
Complex, 96135 Nassau Place,
Yulee. A date has not been set for
the second hearing.
"If we can do any of this with what
we approved back in July, that's fine,
but if it's going to mean an increase in
millage, then I can't support it," Leeper
Although no decisions were made
at the workshop meeting, Boyle
brought forward funding requests
from non-profit groups for later con-
sideration at the two public meetings

In an effort to balance its budget for
upcoming fiscal year 2009-10, the city
has informed local youth sports
leagues there will be increased costs
to use city sports facilities.
An unsigned Aug. 12 letter from
the city to league representatives
informed them it was "staggering to
see the amount that the city was sub-
sidizing" their organizations, includ-
ing "payroll, utilities and supplies."
According to City Manager
Michael Czymbor, the city paid about
$67,000 last year to keep the sports
facilities going for several youth
leagues, including Pop Warner
Football, Amelia Island Youth Soccer,
Elm Street Little League and the Babe
The city, he said, got only about
$2,000 back from those groups.
In order to recoup some of those
costs, the city has developed two
options the leagues can choose from.
One option would be a revenue-shar-
ing agreement, in which city partici-
pants would give 15 percent of rev-
enues to the city, and non-city
participants would give 25 percent of
If the city budget for 2009-10 is
approved in September, local non-prof-
it groups will receive nearly $10,000
less in city funding compared to this
City commissioners agreed with
staff at their Aug. 24 budget workshop
that social service groups such as the
Barnabas Center, Council on Aging
and Boys and Girls Club of Nassau
should receive approximately as much
funding as they did in the past.
But the arts did not fare as well.
Using commissioner input, city staff
recommended that the Amelia Arts
Academy, Amelia Island Film Festival
and Arts Council all receive less
money this year from the city. With a
few minor adjustments, commission-
ers approved the staff recommenda-

Czymbor said that after city staff
met with representatives of several
sports leagues Aug. 20, it was deter-
mined that the city would provide
those groups with more detailed infor-
mation on the costs to run the sports
facilities. The city, he said, would con-
tinue to work with groups until a mutu-
al agreement is reached regarding
reimbursement of costs.
Scott Mikelson of the city Parks &
Recreation Department, who attended
the meeting, said in an e-mail that "the

Boat wakes cause anger, injury
ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Boat
wakes - those long, frothy, V-
shaped waves trailing from
the stern of a powerboat as it
slices through the water -
have a sinister side. When
other vessels encounter
them, they can hurt people.
They can make people angry
and they can bring the wrath
of law enforcement, for good
Boat Owners Association
of The United States
(BoatU.S.) recently looked
into the issue of boat wakes
by combing through the
insurance claims case files,
where swampings, broken
teeth and back injuries are
"You avoid being the
recipient of gestures from
other skippers by using a lit-
tle common sense and cour-
tesy," says BoatU.S. Director
of Damage Avoidance Bob
Adriance. "This means com-
ing completely off plane
when you enter a no wake
zone or anywhere your wake
could compromise the safety
of other boats," he adds.
Here are some tips to help
prevent boat wake injuries to
you and other boaters:
* Slow early: Boat wakes
slow-speed zone, not as you
pass the marker.
Just a little slowing down
isn't good enough: Upon
entering a no wake zone,
some boaters react by only
slowing the vessel slightly,
and then plow through with
the bow way up and stern
dug down, actually increas-
ing the wake. Come com-
pletely off plane.
* Make her level: Without
using trim tabs, a slowed ves-
sel should be level in the
water. With smaller boats,
shifting passengers around
can help, as too much weight
aft increases wake size.
* Watch the shallows:
Shallow water increases
* Small boats aren't inno-
cent: Wakes are not just a big
boat issue - small vessels in
the stern-down position can
throw surprisingly large
* When approaching a
wake, slow down but don't
stop: Motorboats are more
stable when under way, so
stopping could make things
worse. Avoid taking a wake
on the beam or head on. The
best approach is at a slight
angle. This will keep your
passengers in your boat.
* Take care of older crew:
The BoatU.S. insurance
claims files show that per-
sons over the age of 50 have
the most personal injuries,
mostly as a result of being
seated near the bow when
the boat slams into a wake.
It's best to seat passengers -
especially older passengers -
* Warn the crew: A sim-
ple "Hold-on. Boat wake"
should do the trick, just as
long as you shout the warn-
ing well before the wake

"I think Gandhi said, 'A

said he agreed the city should
contribute to the care of chil-
dren and the elderly. "If the
organizations were not here,
the city would have to take care
of it," said Poynter.
Poynter added that he had
objections to giving money to
groups such as the film and
book festivals. "I don't think
that taxpayer dollars should go
to those organizations," he
said. "I'm all for tourists and
festivals," he said, "but I think

after this year," Steger went on.
"(We can) give them notice we

suggested the city take $100
from them and give it to mental
health. "They need it a lot less
than some of these other organ-
izations," he said.

Poynter. "You can take (money)

$200 from the arts academy

Steger said the commission
should also look at city employ-
ee medical benefits and retire-
ment plans, "to see if what we
give them is too rich."
Steger gave an example of a
private business that had pre-
viously matched a retirement
fund up to 7.5 percent, but has
decreased it to 3.5 percent.
"It's happening all over the
place," Steger said. "It needs to
happen in city government as

Although no definitive deci-

Fernandina Beach Commissioners are considering the pos-
sibility of a four-day workweek for city employees.
Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch suggested the city could go
to a four-day workweek to save on utility costs. He noted that
the school system closes on Fridays during the summer, sav-
ing "hundreds of thousands of dollars."
City Manager Michael Czymbor conceded that while the
commissioners had good suggestions, the city had already
cut back on many costs. "I don't think (cutting down on ener-
gy) will immediately solve our budget issues," he said.
"The bottom line on a four-day work week is determining
critical services that would have to be open," Czymbor went on.
"The state of Utah did it for the last two years and saved 13 per-
cent ... we're willing to consider it."
"We need to re-educate the public," said Commissioner
Eric Childers. "It's not that big a deal. I had a four-day job and
it was wonderful. There's a lot of success stories out there if
you look ... we have two more meetings. If it looks viable, I'd
be willing to jump on that bandwagon."
Continued from 1A
where next year's budget will
be finalized - the first of which
is scheduled for Sept. 14.
One such funding request
came from the Boys and Girls
Club. Already funded by the
county at $50,000, the club has
requested an additional
"I think this reaches a
broad spectrum of people in
this community, which is why
I'm bringing it forward," Boyle
County Budget Director
Ted Selby pointed out that the
club only started receiving
county funding within the last
year. "They got zero in 2007-08,
$50,000 for '08-09, and now
they're asking for an addition-
al $25,000," he said.
Most commissioners felt
the requested increase was far
"I could understand asking
for 10 percent or 5 percent,
but to ask for half again what
you're already getting is a bit
Walter Boatright said.
One funding increase the
commissioners did support
was to Sutton Place Behavioral
Health. Making up for a
decrease in state funding, the
county's extra money would
qualify Sutton Place to receive
"They have requested an
additional $19,000, and this is
only so they will qualify for
matching funds," Boyle said.
For qualified mental health
programs, the federal govern-
ment would contribute funds
three times the amount of
Sutton Place's contribution,
"I've seen what Sutton
Place has done for the com-
munity," Commissioner Stacy
Johnson said. "... If the return
on investment is 3-1, I could
support the $19,000."
Funding for maintenance
at the Nassau County Judicial
Annex was also discussed. The
annex's plumbing needs work
and its brickwork needs water-
sealing, according to Building
Maintenance Director Daniel
Salmon. However, Leeper
again said he would not sup-
port a tax increase to pay for it.
"If it's an emergency we
need to address it, but at this
point I'm willing to trade - I'm
not willing to add," he said.
Boyle urged the other com-
missioners not to reject tax
increases out of hand.
"The reason I came up with
these plans this year is that I
think we can do these without
undue burden on the taxpay-
ers," he said. "If property val-
ues continue to go down - and
I don't see anything to indicate
they won't - we're going to be
behind the 8-ball come budget
time next year. I understand
no one wants to raise millage
rates. It's not popular. ... Just
keep in mind this is going to
"(The millage increase)
may be minimal, but I'm look-
ing out for that single mother
who may need that $50,"
"I think we need to be as fis-
cally conservative a govern-
ment as we can," Holloway
said. "That's why in these
times, if we can give the tax-
payers an extra $10 to buy a
Happy Meal, I want to do that."

Wreck knocks out power in city
A car collided with a truck
driven by a man suspected of
DUI after he struck a utility
pole on South Eighth Street and
knocked out power in a wide
area of the city early Monday
According to a Nassau
County Sheriff's Office report,
James Edward Johnston, 54, of
South Carolina left the roadway
in a 2006 Ford F-150 and
bounced off a utility pole in
front of 2990 S. Eighth St. just
after midnight Aug. 25. The col-
lision caused significant dam-
age to the truck and caused the
pole to lean over the road.
Johnston's truck came to
rest in the roadway, blocking
both eastbound lanes.
Witnesses in a nearby building
heard the noise of the wreck
and walked out to find Johnston
exiting his truck, the report
stated. They yelled to him to
get out of the roadway, which
was darkened due to the power
outage, but an oncoming car
traveling east was unable to
avoid his truck.

1995 Ford, driven by Johana

This photo, taken by a witness, shows the aftermath of a crash that took place just

GOP decries mailer
TALLAHASSEE - Repub-
lican Party of Florida Chairman
Jim Greer has condemned a
mailer regarding absentee bal-
lot request forms for the GOP
primary election to replace
deceased State Sen. Jim King.
"As Chairman of the
Republican Party of Florida, I
condemn both the content of
your mailer and your use of the
Republican indicia to imply an
affiliation with the Republican
Party," said Greer in a letter to
Erin DiCesare, leader of the
group responsible for circulat-
ing the mailer, which used
Black Panther images and
President Obama. "Florida law
prohibits you from using the
name or symbols of a political
party without first obtaining the
written approval of that party's
state executive committee."
"The fact that you are a
Democrat who resides in Leon
County leads me to seriously
question your involvement in
a Republican primary in Duval
County," wrote Greer. "Why is
a Democrat collecting Republi-
can absentee ballots requests?
Why are the requests going to
a P.O. box instead of the
Supervisor of Elections? Who is
financing this rogue group?"
"The Republican Party of
Florida is exploring all avail-
able legal options to ensure that
eligible voters are not misled
or disenfranchised by the activ-
ities of you or your organiza-
tion," wrote Greer.
The mailer from the "Con-
servative Voters' Coali-tion" was
sent to Republicans, including
those on Amelia Island, last
'We all see that the key segment for
resurfacing is from 1-95 in. But we have the
Shave Bridge to Atlantic Avenue scheduled
for this (fiscal) year. Is there any possibility
of swapping those projects?'
NASSAU COUNTY ENGINEERING SERVICES DIRECTOR
AIA Continued from 1A
will continue to grow," he said.
"... From 2003 to 2006, traffic
increased on AIA by 2.97 per-
cent. From 2006 to 2008 it
increased by 7.2 percent."
Williams said A1A is des-
perately in need of repair.
"We're seeing rocks and grav-
el, seeing it literally disinte-
grate under the wheels of the
vehicles that are going
through," he said.
Manager James Bennett said
the portion of AlA on Amelia
Island, from the Shave Bridge
to Atlantic Avenue, is sched-
uled for resurfacing in 2010.
However, the section between
1-95 and the island, considered
the most critical by most who
attended the meeting, is not
scheduled for repairs until
"My concern is when you
get the kind of traffic we have
on A1A, along with the grav-
eling we're seeing and our
afternoon thunderstorms, it
becomes a public safety issue,"
"We all see that the key
segment for resurfacing is
from 95 in," said Nassau
County Engineering Services
Director Scott Herring. "But
we have the Shave Bridge to
Atlantic Avenue scheduled for
this (fiscal) year. Is there any
possibility of swapping those
"No. That's the short, sim-
ple answer," Baldwin said.
"The main problem on the
road is the ruts. It is a safety
issue," Nassau County
Commissioner Stacy Johnson
said. "When I'm in my large
SUV it's not a big deal, but
when there's any rain on the
road and you're in a smaller
vehicle and try to change
lanes, the pull is amazing."
Baldwin said the Shave
Bridge to Atlantic project will
be bid in March.
"How long will it take to
pick a contractor, and how
long roughly to start work?"
"We'll probably award it by
the end of March, and you'll
see them start shoving mate-
rial around within 60 or 70
days," Baldwin said. "The west
section (between 1-95 and the
island) will be let in February
of 2011. So we're going to
screw up your traffic with con-
struction for a year."
"Actually, we prefer to say
we're going to provide eco-
nomic stimulus and jobs to the
community for a year,"
Adkins said requesting
bids on the west section earli-
er could save money. As the
economy continues to recover,
she said, bids will be higher.
Therefore, it makes sense to
start work earlier.
"If we let that project earli-
er you might get even a
greater economy of value," she
"If we let it in December or
January?" Baldwin said.
"We can look at that,"
"Do you know when that
design (for the west section) is
scheduled to be completed?"
Baldwin said the design
phase of the west section
resurfacing should be com-
pleted around October of
2010. "If you look at the
February let and back up five
months, there's your design,"
Baldwin said that while he
understands A1A is in need
of repairs, he cannot promise
any greater speed from FDOT
in affecting repairs.
"With the west component
I can look at moving it forward
and see. We won't have that

A Public Service Anouncement by The News-Leader
Children might ask tons of
questions like, "Why do we fly
the American flag," or "Why do
we say the Pledge of
Allegiance," but one thing's for
sure - most youngsters put
their whole heart into patriotic
events. They also don't dispute
whether it's right or wrong.
Have you ever watched a
small child vie for the opportu-
nity to stretch taller than the
next and square their shoulders
while keeping their hand cen-
tered over their heart during
the playing of the national
anthem? Kids practically bend
over backwards eyeing the flag
as it's raised up the pole and
always want to be up front wav-
ing their miniature flags during
Their excitement is always
so palpable and never fails to
extend to those nearby. They
love the excitement of singing
patriotic songs and probably
know better than most spirited
ditties like "Yankee Doodle."
For these reasons, I believe our
youth of today make the best
I recently read two items
which sparked my interest
about child patriots. Both high-
ly influenced me when selecting
a subject for this week's article.
One was a letter from Dr. Lu
Cain from Woodbine Elemen-
tary in Woodbine, Ga. During a
ceremony on the first day of
school, Cain recapped how
crewmembers from the USS
Maryland, present for the cer-
emony, snapped to attention for
the raising of the American flag.
It followed saying, "I thought
of the children who stood so
reverently as they soaked up
the events and knew that they
would hold them in their mem-
ories forever ..."
The second item was
"Fostering a Work Ethic," by
Richard Bromfield. He stated,
dren how to

t h e m
believe these same concepts
should be used to nurture
young, inquisitive minds in the
art of citizenship. Start early,
teach, have expectations, work
with them, pay reasonably and
be a good model.
With the new school year in
high gear, there won't be a bet-
ter time to nab the attention of
our future leaders and instruct
them on the facts and traditions
of our great nation. Kids are
buzzing with enthusiasm and
their eager, energetic willing-
ness to participate can be con-
tagious. This is a great time to
get our children involved in the
Americanism Program by con-
ducting simple, entertaining
projects that will promote a life-
time of patriotic involvement.
The formative years of life
are the most impressionable
and when starting early, young
citizens learn what it's like to
grow up in a democratic socie-
ty. Learning begins at their first
parade when the American flag
makes her maiden pass down
the street or at a ballgame when
everyone stands for the nation-
al anthem. Learning to be a
patriot is not a difficult under-
taking when you're instilled
with the values of "love thy
country" early on in life.

Rheumatoid arthritis can be treated
Almost everyone knows someone
who suffers with arthritis. In my
family my mother and father, "may
they rest in peace," both had arthri-
tis. We are a family of 12 - Eight
males, four females - and we all
have some level of osteoarthritis,
which is the common form of arthri-
tis, except for my youngest sister,
who suffers from rheumatoid arthri-
My mother called her "my
change of life baby." My mother
thought that she was going through
her change of life, but several
months later found out that at almost
50 she was pregnant with her last
child. Well, needless to say, this
change of life baby was spoiled by
everyone including me. I saw this
new baby as my own personal life-
My baby sister first started feel-
ing sick in her early 30s; 10 years
and countless doctor visits later, she
was diagnosed with rheumatoid
arthritis. My sister is now in her
early 40s and is receiving the proper
treatment she needs. Praise the
Lord, "He gives physicians the abili-
ty to heal."

VIEWPOINT/MIKE BOYLE/AMELIA ISLAND CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU
Positive news for local tourism
T here is no use denying the facts:
Amelia Island's tourism industry -
like the rest of Florida and the United
States - is feeling the adverse effects
of a struggling global economy. Yet despite the
downturn, Amelia Island has enjoyed recent
trend-defying growth and improvement of our
local tourism product, which is a very positive
development, and a sign of our local industry's
health and resilience.
In previous columns regarding the tourism
industry and our local Tourist Development
Council, I have tried to highlight the critical
role tourism plays in our Nassau County econo-
my. One in five jobs and one in four businesses
are tourism related, and tourism generates
more than $346 million in total sales, and 36
percent of the sales tax in the county.
But there is another side to the local
tourism picture that may escape your attention,
and that is the construction piece, the actual
"bricks and mortar" of our businesses. At a
time when new construction and renovations
have been extremely hard-hit, a lot has been
happening right here on our own island.
On Aug. 20, the new Marriott Residence Inn
Amelia Island opened its doors on Sadler Road,
becoming the island's newest hotel. Ideal for
leisure and corporate customers, the 133-suite
hotel in Fernandina Beach can accommodate
small and large meetings. Fernandina's his-
toric harborfront Hampton Inn & Suites is
beginning an extensive renovation of guest
rooms, meeting space and common areas. On
the other end of the island, the multimillion
dollar ballroom addition at The Ritz-Carlton,
Amelia Island is nearly finished. When com-
pleted this fall, the project will add 12,000
square feet of new meeting space to the luxury
property, making it one of
, . . the largest conference
hotels in the region.
It's important to under-
stand that these new proj-
ects will not only help
' attract future tourism dol-
lars to our community, but
their construction gave an
immediate shot in the arm
Boyle to our lagging construction
industry. In addition to cre-
ating badly needed jobs,
the new construction, renovations and expan-
sions represent a combined $45 million in
spending which circulated several times
through the local economy in a time of need.
Helping to weather the current storm, the
Amelia Island Convention & Visitors Bureau
(CVB), in conjunction with our tourism part-
ners, is working harder than ever to promote
Amelia Island as the attractive, affordable desti-
nation so many leisure and business travelers
have come to love. The CVB's aggressive mar-
keting efforts play a critical role in maintaining
the island's position in an increasingly competi-
tive marketplace, and seeing to it that our own
community emerges from this downturn as
quickly as possible.
In recent months, the CVB has been attract-
ing attention and generating exposure for
Amelia Island through new vacation package
offers, consumer promotions, advertising
placements, social media efforts and feature
articles. A new "Seaside Salute" discount has
just been announced through print and online
media channels, with 13 of the island's resorts,
hotels and inns offering huge discounts for
active duty, reserve and retired military.
Other consumer promotions have proven
successful this year, including the "Pack Your
Bags" promotion, which gives visitors a credit
to offset checked baggage fees being charged
by the airlines, and the "Free Night, Any
Night" which provides visitors a free night
after booking a qualifying stay. Additionally,
more than 50 area merchants are now offering
discounts through the Amelia Island Value
Card, which has been distributed to more than
10,000 overnight visitors. All of these programs
are designed to generate additional tourist rev-
enue for our destination, and are funded by
"tourist dollars," not local "tax dollars."
On another positive note, the state of
Florida has seen an increase in travel from its
domestic feeder markets of Atlanta, Nashville,
Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham and in Florida
itself, all of which are key to our destination. In
addition, the U.S. Travel Association has pre-
dicted a modest recovery in travel in 2010.
And let's not forget the enduring popularity
of our product. When it comes to finding recov-
ery projects that are "shovel-ready," our beauti-
ful island is ideal for the investment of tourism
dollars. Amelia Island has been voted one of
the Top 10 North American Island's in Conde
Nast Traveler's "Reader's Choice Awards" for
two consecutive years.
These will no doubt be remembered as
some of the most challenging times in Florida
tourism. But we believe these positive develop-
ments, along with outstanding industry sup-
port and the tireless efforts of the CVB, its
staff and marketing partners, will help Amelia
Island emerge stronger than ever in the global

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Recently Republican voters in
Nassau County who reside on
Amelia Island have been receiving
political mail from an organization
called "Conservative Voters
Coalition." The mailer was an over-
sized jumbo card that was aimed at
encouraging Nassau Republicans to
complete a form that would trigger
a request for an absentee ballot. The
absentee ballot request cards in this
mail piece are directed to a post
office box in Jacksonville as opposed
to being sent to the Supervisor of
Elections Office here in Nassau
County. At the last Republican
Executive Committee meeting last
week several members brought
these mail pieces and raised con-
cerns about this organization.
According to a news article in
the Orlando Sentinel, a 527 group
was created by a Tallahassee lawyer
named David Ramba. The group is
chaired by a Florida State University
adjunct professor named Erin
Dicesare. It is clear that the tone
and statements made in this mail
piece are designed to create a neg-
ative view of various organizations
and individuals shown in the pic-
ture. The mail piece is controver-
sial and is inappropriate in many
ways in that it seeks to create inflam-
mation that is centered on race
The Republican Party of Florida
and the local party has worked hard
to reach out to minorities and the
youth to help build a stronger base
for conservative principles. In no
way does this mail piece reflect the
values and principles of the local
Republican Party nor the Republican
Party of Florida. I object to the neg-
ative tone and the misperception
that was created by this mail.
As your Republican State
Committeeman I have asked the
RPOF Chairman Jim Greer to work
with us to surface the people respon-
sible for this offensive mail. While
the people who have prepared the
mail have a legal right of free
speech, we also have a right to
object to its approach. It is clear this
type of election communication is
offensive to many and is not helpful
to voters. The constant drumbeat
of negative messages all around us,
from the economy to taxes, the
deficit and unemployment, are the
real issues that concern all voters
and should be the topics that cam-
paigns focus on.
The Republican Party does not
control nor does it approve what
campaigns or their 527 operations
say and do in promoting a candi-
date or position for and against. The
tone of politics often drifts away from
the issues that matter most to the cit-
izens and starts to become entan-
gled in the politics of personalities.
Through our recent Drive the
Discussion 2010 forums we have
worked hard to ensure that the GOP
is listening and responding to peo-
Voters in Nassau County are
encouraged to seek their absentee
ballot from the Supervisor of
Elections Office or to participate in
early voting as a way to ensure that
their voice is heard in the Senate
District 8 campaign. The voters in
Nassau County are intelligent citi-
zens who will look at the facts and
weigh the positions of the people
working to become their next sen-
ator and will make a choice that
reflects what is best.
Please make plans to cast your
ballot on Sept. 15 in the Republican
primary for state senate. Your local
Republican Party encourages you
to review the candidates and select
the person that will best represent

Serve and protect
I am writing in response to the
article that ran Aug. 21 regarding
"Sheriff laments 'power struggle' -
I would first like to say that my
husband is a city police officer and
has been going on 21 years now.
This article made my blood boil! I
have to agree 100 percent with
James Kerrigan in the statement he
made regarding the drug issue - if
the sheriff is so concerned then
why doesn't he do something about
the area where drugs are being
sold if he has knowledge of the deal-
ings as well as genuine concern and
feels enough is not being done?
Since he is, as the Attorney General
ruled, officer for the whole county,
then isn't Fernandina in Nassau
I have listened to the ridiculous
politics for a long time and find it a
real shame that county and city can-
not work together. Do not think for
one minute that these city officers
do not do their jobs every time they
go out on the streets, because they
do, they are very dedicated. The
NCSO officers do as well; we have
several friends in that department.
The county has plenty of issues to
deal with I am sure, just as I am
sure any department does. All of
our officers, city and county, have
heart and soul in this community
even though some of these officers
were not born here, so give credit
where credit is deserved.
It would be nice to see the two
agencies work together and I doubt
I am the only one that feels this way,
even as an officer's spouse. I am
sure the help would be very appre-
ciated if it were offered sincerely
and not condescendingly. To earn
the respect you are requesting, you
have to give it as well.
Thank you to all of our officers
that serve and protect, city and coun-

What idiot came up with the idea
of blackouts for the Jaguars games?
I understand this is a NFL rule for
all teams, but where is the logic?
How can anyone become a fan of a
team that they can only watch a few
times a season? I say we boycott all
Jaguar merchandise until they
change the rules. The NFL gets a
slice of everything sold with the
Jaguar logo on it, so I say stop buy-
ing the merchandise.
Health care control
There is no doubt in my mind
that reforming our health care is
something that we all can agree.
Health care costs are zooming and
we are hearing everyday about hos-
pitals and other medical centers in
financial disarray (banks are not the
only institutions having problems).
It takes money to operate a hospital
and to pay for medical procedures
and its providers. Revenue and
expenses, umm - sounds like a busi-
ness corporation. A hospital and a
doctor's office is as much a busi-
ness as it is a provider of much need-
ed services. What are we to do?
I have been in the medical field
for nearly 40 years and although I
have an MBA degree I would much
rather be working with and helping
patients than to spend my life
crunching numbers or sitting
behind a desk. But it seems to me
that Congress and the president are
proposing a totally different
upheaval in our health care deliv-
ery than we need. Reform yes, con-
Give us portability so we can take
our insurance coverage wherever
we go, give us no pre-existing limi-
tations, give us a cafeteria-style
choice so that we can pick and chose
what kind of insurance coverage we
want, give us tort reform so that
physicians no longer have to prac-
tice CYA medicine are just some
examples. The single-payer option
should be given a proper burial
because the needed reform will then
become an unnecessary control
where our options will disappear.
By far the majority of Americans
feel that they have adequate insur-
ance and are satisfied with their
health care. Some "nip and tuck"
here and a few changes there would
make our system look much pretti-
er. Let's concentrate on a few
changes and stop dividing our coun-
try. Reform our system but don't
destroy it. What about the oppos-
ing health care reform bills that have
been introduced already in
Congress? Several of these alter na-
tive bills go to the heart of the prob-
lem and have been shown to pay
for itself instead of putting us deep-
er and deeper into debt. Fix what is
broken but don't destroy what we

'Lion of the Senate'
I and many millions of Ameri-
cans were saddened to learn of the
death of Massachusetts Sen.
Edward M. Kennedy. It is a major
loss to the U.S. Senate and to the
country as a whole. I had the privi-
lege to work for the senator on his
foreign policy staff for one year in
the late 1980's and witnessed first-
hand his dedication and hard work,
which earned him the respect and
affection of his fellow senators on
both sides of the aisle. For example,
his friend Republican Sen. Orrin
Hatch referred to him as an iconic,
larger than life U.S. senator whose
influence cannot be overstated.
A tireless worker on behalf of
the less fortunate in our society,
Sen. Kennedy was also willing to
strive for compromise to achieve
real results. It is tragic that he
passed on before health care reform
could be accomplished, a goal to
which he had dedicated himself
throughout his Senate career. The
only one of the four Kennedy broth-
ers not to die violently in service to
our country, he proudly carried for-
ward his family's dedication to pub-

First Baptist welcomes Buchanan
In view of call, the music search com-
mittee of First Baptist Church,
Fernandina Beach, had unanimously
recommended Steve Buchanan to come
in view of a call Aug. 9 as worship pas-
tor. On August 7, the Celebration Choir
rehearsed with him. Then on Aug. 8, a
time of fellowship was enjoyed with
Steve and his family of four children and
lovely wife. A meal was also served.
Then on Aug. 9 at the 10:15 a.m. serv-
ice, they had an opportunity to vote.
Steve accepted the call.
The many ministries of the church
lined the church foyer with booths and
information to give everyone an oppor-
tunity to get involved. This was to let
people know how God could use them
to "build the church."
The Steve Buchanan family comes to
us from Buford, Ga. Steve and Robin
were married in 1990 and have four chil-
dren, Ashton, Kaitlyn, Landon and
Mason. Ashton begins college this fall,
Kaitlyn and Landon are in high school
and Mason is in middle school. Steve
was born Jan. 29, 1962.
He has a bachelor of church music
from Shorter College, Rome, Ga. His
principal applied instrument is vocal and
piano. He also plays acoustic and elec-
tric guitar, keyboard and bass guitar. He
enjoys time with his family, golf, hunt-
ing, reading and motorcycles.
Steve's passion and purpose: "God's
work encourages us to worship Him
with music. Psalm 92:1 says, 'It is good
to praise the Lord and make music to
your name, Oh, most High.' However, it
is my belief that worship and music are
not necessarily the same thing. Biblical,
authentic worship is the surrendering to
God all of that which controls our hearts
and forms our desires. We are called to
glorify God, not just in what we sing, but
the way we speak, think and act.
My life purpose is to be used of God
to impact my family, my church, my
community and the world through lead-
ing, teaching and developing lifestyle
worshipers; leading through modeling;
teaching through motivating; and devel-
oping through mentoring.
During the Christmas break of my
senior year at Shorter College, God
spoke clearly to my heart and spirit and
called me to full-time music/worship
In 1989, I left full-time staff ministry
and formed "Highest Love Ministries," a
concert music ministry. God called my
wife and I out of this ministry in 1992
and back into full-time staff work, where
we have served faithfully, because of His
faithfulness, ever since! God bless!"
Student Bible studies continue to
meet at First Baptist Church. The guys
meet Mondays at Dr. Henry's home at 7
p.m. Girls meet with Ashley Scott on
Thursday at 5 p.m. in the caf6. Bible
studies are for students in grades 6-12.
Pastors Pals kickoff event at the St.
Marys Aquatic Center on July 31 had to
be rescheduled for Aug. 21. Cost was
still $10 per family for admission with a
T-shirt for the kids. This event was for
kindergarteners through fifth graders
and their families. Back to school picnic,
an annual tradition here at First Baptist
Church, was Aug. 26 at Peters Point. In
case of rain, they were having the picnic
at the Family Life Center.
It was a beautiful day Aug. 11 for the
ladies of the Hazel Allen Circle to get
out and go to their monthly covered

Raging rivers, tree roots and getting a grip
he went. He was
without excuse. Our
parents had con-
stantly warned us about the
dangers of the Winooski
River, and now this. To make
matters worse, my friend John
was all alone. One would have
thought he would have been
more careful, seeing he had
grown up by the very river
that was now trying to claim
As he frantically struggled
to stay afloat, his cries for help
seemed in vain. Only the trees
lining the river's banks were
there to hear and watch as the
strong current carried him
away. Years of his parents'

pen so quick-
ly? Was it too

PULPIT John was
NOTES one of those
..... guys that
Pastor one in our
Rob Goyette sixth grade
noticed. He wasn't good look-
ing. He wasn't extremely tal-
ented. And, at the same time,
he never caused a bunch of
trouble. He was just your aver-
age guy; somewhat lost in the
crowd. I suppose that's what I
liked about him. Not a lot of
fluff. What you saw was what
you got. Actually, he seemed
quite content not being
noticed, except on the day he
fell in the river that is.
If it hadn't been for the
lone tree root sticking out
from the muddy bank, this
article would have to end a lot
more tragically. Miracu-lously,
John's hand found the root
and he was able to pull him-
self out. I can only imagine
what it felt like to lay hold of
something so solid at a time
when no one else was there to
I'm sure if I asked John
today to repeat the story it
would come out with the same
amount of gratitude and sobri-
ety as it did the first day he
told it -gratitude for the lone
tree root hanging in the water;
sobriety because he had
underestimated the dangers
of playing around the river's
edge. Let me explain.
John learned the hard way
that anytime we hang out in
places that we really shouldn't
be, it's only a matter of time
before we fall in. He also
learned that, though there's
no guarantee that there will
always be a root in the water
to help us out, God is merciful
and if our repentance is real
so will His help be.
These two essential princi-
ples - sobriety and gratitude -
constitute what I believe to be
some of the most vital rules
for successful living. If we
choose not to heed the coun-
sel and warnings of our heav-
enly Father, like John with his
parents, we shouldn't be sur-
prised if we find ourselves
swept away and in jeopardy of
losing everything we have.
That being said, if that's
you, I'd liked to extend to you
the tree root of heaven - Jesus
Christ. I know, maybe my
analogy sounds a little hokey
to some of you but it really
doesn't matter. When no one
else is around, and you realize
how desperate for help you
are, Jesus is the only solid
thing to grab onto. Having
been there, I'm not ashamed
to declare it. I can honestly
say that the gratitude I feel in
my heart and the growing
respect I have for God's coun-
sel and guidance have given
me a quality of life I didn't
According to the Bible,
Jesus is the root of the house
of David and is the only way
for mankind to be saved.

State issues'Xtreme Cuisine' challenge
TALLAHASSEE - Florida teachers
and other youth activity coordinators
with students ages 10-15 can enter to
win a cooking session to learn "Xtreme
Cuisine" techniques for preparing
healthy, kid-friendly recipes.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services in
recent years has introduced youths
around the state to the world of cooking
and good nutrition through its "Xtreme
Cuisine" program. Cooking schools for
middle-school students have been held
in Tampa, Miami, Orlando, Tallahassee,
Pinellas Park, Ocala and Naples.
Using the "Xtreme Cuisine" cur-
riculum, students learn to prepare
whole-wheat pizzas, fruit parfaits and
other nutritious and tasty treats. They
also learn how Florida fruit and veg-
etables used in these recipes provide
vitamins and minerals that can help pre-
vent heart disease and other obesity-
In addition, students learn the dan-
gers caused by excessive amounts of
salt, sugar and fats in their diet, and
how fiber could eliminate their desire for
high-calorie, low-nutrition snack foods.
They also learn how many calories are
needed for their age and gender, the
vitamin and mineral content of many
Florida fruits and vegetables, and how
to read a food nutrition label.
'Instead of automatically reaching for junk foods,
we want (students) to explore healthy alternatives
by using fresh Florida fruit and vegetables as
ingredients for fun and delicious snacks.'
FLORIDA AGRICULTURE COMMISSIONER CHARLES H. BRONSON
"Many children often prepare their
own after-school snacks when they
come home each afternoon," Florida
Agriculture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said. "We want to help them
change their snacking habits. Instead of
automatically reaching for junk foods,
we want them to explore healthy alter-
natives by using fresh Florida fruit and
vegetables as ingredients for fun and
Now in its second year, the "Xtreme
Cuisine Chef Demo Contest" provides
teachers who conduct and document
their own cooking class locally, an oppor-
tunity to win a complimentary session
with the department's "Xtreme Cuisine"
chef. These students will learn advanced
cooking techniques. All food and pro-
motional items will be supplied for the
winning classes of up to 75 students.
To enter, teachers must set up and
conduct an "Xtreme Cuisine" class with
at least 10 students in which the stu-
dents prepare at least two "Xtreme
Cuisine" recipes using at least six total
fresh Florida fruits and vegetables. The
classes must use the existing curricu-
lum, which can be ordered online at
tion/xtreme.htm, and must be held
between Sept. 30 and Dec. 31.
At the completion of the classes,
teachers must fill out the "Xtreme
Cuisine Chef Demo Contest Entry" and
submit it with the required accompa-
nying documents and photographs,
specifying the categories they are enter-
A winning class will be selected in
the following categories:
1. First - The first completed entry
to be postmarked with accompanying
documents will win.
2. Great - The coordinator with the
greatest number of participating stu-
dents will win.
3. Smart - The class that demon-
states the most impressive knowledge
gained from the local class will win.
Student essays, photos, quotes, draw-
ings and other descriptions are encour-
Classes can be organized by public
and private school teachers, agriscience
teachers, school food and nutrition man-
agers, and youth activity coordinators
with County Cooperative Extension
Offices, FFA chapters, Florida Farm
Bureau groups and other related areas.
Entries must be postmarked on or
before Dec. 31. The winner will be noti-
fied on or before Jan. 30, 2010, and the
"Xtreme Cuisine Chef Cooking Demo"
will be held prior to May 31, 2010.
'The nutritional information provid-
ed at the 'Xtreme Cuisine' events helps
students make healthy eating choices as
they become adults," Bronson said.
"Learning the importance of good nutri-
tion at a young age is the key to a
In 2009 more than 180 students in
the three winning classes were treated
to chef demonstrations.

BURNS FAMILY HONORED
The Fernandina Beach High School Foundation recently held a ribbon cutting for the Paul and Annie Burns Mentoring Center, with benches
being placed in their honor. Attending the ceremony were, from left, Jim Burns, son, Ella and Megan Burns, granddaughters, Elizabeth Purvis,
daughter, Mitch Purvis, grandson, and Abigail Purvis, great-granddaughter. The FBHS Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises
money to enhance academics at FBHS and oversees an endowment fund for that same purpose. The Burns family has been involved in the
FBHS Foundation for many years and was recognized for their generous contributions with the benches being placed in their memory.

Hothead for hot heads
My son Parker is playing Pop
Warner football for the first time
and loves it, despite the hot after-
noon practices. Policies are in
place to make sure the kids do not overheat,
including frequent rest periods and water
breaks. Still, I have advised him there is a dif-
ference between hot and "dizzy hot," as we
call it. Heat-related illness is a very serious
condition and, since 1995, 39 football players
from Pop Warner to the pros have died from
But a new device could help make heat-
related deaths in football a thing of the past.
'There's a problem with heat in football
and we feel like we have a solution to that
problem," said Jay Buckalew, founder and
CEO of Hothead Sports.
The Hothead is a heat sensor designed to
work inside football helmets. When a player's
body temperature reaches concerning levels,
the sensor sends a signal to the sideline med-
ical staff. Cost for each individual device is
about a $100.
While widespread use may not be feasible
at the community level, placing one in the
helmet of a player known to be particularly
sensitive to the heat or with a past history of
heat-realted illness should be considered ...
Appalachian State senior quarterback
Armanti Edwards, who gained national fame
two years ago when he led the Mountaineers
to a stunning victory of the Michigan
Wolverines, has now gained national attention
for an unusual reason. The three-time All-
American will miss 2-4 weeks after running a
lawn mower over the top of his foot last week;
it rolled down a steep hill back at him.
Edwards was mowing the lawn at his off-
campus residence when the incident
occurred. Thankfully, Edwards apparently
does not have any injuries to bones or ten-
dons, but received stitches for deep cuts.
Teammate and roommate
Brian Quick transported
Edwards to Watauga
Medical Center, where he
.. w, was treated and released.
Edwards, the 6-foot-1 and
180-pound senior, has led

A ATHLETE INACTION
Jeremy Schreiber of Fernandina Beach has spent his summer playing basketball in
Israel and returns home Sept. 3. He is pictured on the Mount of Olives with the old
city of Jerusalem and the Dome of the Rock behind him.
Schreiber takes his game to Israel
Jeremy Schreiber grew up
around the game of basketball.
His father, Matt, has spent
decades coaching the sport and
is currently the head boys
coach at Fernandina Beach
Schreiber, 26, graduated
from FBHS in 2002 and was the
county's most valuable player
that season. He went on to play
at three different colleges, cul-
minating his career at Webber
International University in Bab-
son Park, where he is current-
ly an assistant coach for the
men's basketball team.
This summer the sport he
loves took Schreiber around
the world. He played in the
Palestinian Basketball Associa-
tion and also spent time with
Upwards League, a basketball
program for Palestinian chil-
dren ages 7-14, through the pro-
gram Athletes in Action.
"We do skills-type stuff to
try to actually teach basketball
to the kids in a culture where
there are not many people who
know a lot about basketball,"
Schreiber said in an e-mail. "It
becomes frustrating at times,
but the kids really do enjoy us
taking the time to try to help
"I think a lot of it has noth-
ing to do with basketball. I
think it has more to do with
someone actually taking the
time to show that they care
about them, something they
are not used to due to what they
would call the 'Israeli Occupa-
tion' of Palestine."

with the Pirate basketball camp

ISRAEL From 12A
with the youth league in Israel.
"On Thursdays, we let the
kids play games," he said. "As
much as we try to keep the
games organized by the use of
the scoreboard and referees, it
usually turns into chaos. But at
least it's a chaos that involves
the kids having fun and smil-
But it wasn't all fun for
Schreiber. He played in the
"first division" of the PBA. His
team, Terrasanta, went 6-3 for
the "tournament" - Schreiber
said "seasons are called tour-
naments here" - and now
advances to the super league,
which begins in January.
"I am set to return to play
with my team for this league,"
Terrasanta also played in
the 29th ShuhadaTournament,
the biggest in Palestine. Of the
16 teams invited, two were from
Gaza, "invited as a gesture to
show that the rest of Palestine
is thinking of them even
through they are not allowed
to travel through Israel into the
West Bank," Schreiber said.
His team went 1-1 in the first
round and lost by two in the
round, ending the team's
games for summer.
"The primary goal of the
summer, from a basketball per-
spective, was to qualify my
team for the super league,
which I was successful in help-
ing them to do," Schreiber said.
i'. i li:ip, we could have been
more successful in the other
tournaments. That would have
been icing on the cake."
Schreiber also played with
his team in the Palestinian
American Solidarity Tourna-
ment, which included seven
teams from the super league
and two from the first division.
"We went 0-4 so we didn't
advance," Schreiber said.
But he played well, averag-
ing around 30 points a game.
"Most of the games were
pretty close," Schreiber said.
"We just had trouble pulling out
Playing hoops in the U.S. is
different from his experience
over the summer, Schreiber
"The work ethic, skill level,
fitness and overall dedication
and importance of basketball
in Palestine is far below that of
the U.S., so it has been frus-
treating for me in that sense,"
Schreiber said. "However, it is
rewarding to get to play in
games where so much pride is
on the line between teams.
Palestine is small, so teams are
close in proximity and rela-
tionships, so they care a lot
about the games. It's awesome
to help them win and see how
much it means to them."
While Schreiber was teach-
ing basketball, he was learning
about another culture.
"It's really incredible getting
to meet people from so many
different backgrounds, Arab-
Jews, Jewish-Christians, to
name a few," Schreiber said. "I
had a completely distorted view
of faiths outside of Christianity
before coming on this trip.
Interacting with people from
these other faiths has really
been the biggest blessing of
"It's just been really reas-
suring to come here and see
that ... people from this part of
the world aren't as dangerous
and hateful as it seems we are
all led to believe."

Tales of Wales in story
For the News Leader
Coal dust and the small coal-mining val-
leys of South Wales supplied a down-to-earth
upbringing for David Llewellyn - values and
early life lessons he still holds dear. But at 17,
with little more than a jacket and guitar in
hand, he left home to begin a successful
career as a singer in the same working-man's
clubs that bred stars like Tom Jones.
When the music scene in the United
Kingdom was taken over by computer tech-
nology and drum machines, Llewellyn found

"As soon as I took my first breath of the
valley's air," said Llewellyn, "I knew that
although the wonderful songwriting cities of
Austin and Nashville may have honed my
skills and taught me the 'craft,' it was Wales -
its Celtic traditions and working-class com-
munities - that I had to draw upon for my
inspiration, and that has increasingly drawn
me back to my roots. I was part of the first
generation not to go down the mines, and I've
always felt thankful for that."
One of Llewellyn's original songs about a
young child's first day working underground,
and his father's heart-breaking thoughts,
touched a nerve and gained Llewellyn a win-
ning spot in the "New Folk" competition at
the 2007 Kerrville Folk Festival.
