Veterans mark



day, building


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader

American Legion Post 54
dedicated a new post building.
Wednesday. The new building,
located at 626 S. Third St., is
the culmination of about 10
years of planning and effort.
The post's old building, a city-
owned log cabin located at 12
South 11th St., had been in
use by the Legion since about
1940.
"This is the first time in the
history of American Legion
Post 54 that we've had our own
building," Post 54 Commander
Tom Gora told the guests at
the dedication ceremony. "...
This is like a dual event. We
have Veterans Day, and we're
here to dedicate this building."
Paul Martel, the American
Legion's national sergeant-at-
arms, reflected on the impor-
tance of veterans serving their
communities.
"What is a veteran?" he
asked. 'The veteran is an over-
the-road truck driver. The vet-
eran is a nurse. The veteran is
a factory worker. But what are
they? They are ordinary peo-
ple doing an extraordinary job.
"You stood tall and you
answered the call of your coun-
try ... and when you were done
doing the job for your coun-
try, you did not shirk doing
your job for your community.,
That's why you joined this post

- because you cannot shirk
your duty."
"If there's any day that you
should dedicate a new post,
today would be the ideal day to
do it," said Phil Hearlson,
Department of Florida com-
mander, "Why do I say that?
Because our forefathers gave
us this day.... You committed
yourself a number of years ago
that you wanted a bigger and
better post, and I applaud you
for that."
Fernandina Beach Mayor
Susan Steger also addressed
the audience. "As we gather
together today, let us begin by
honoring the past. We honor
the founders and leaders of
Post 54 who are no longer
here, those whose hard work
and dedication put us where
we are today," she said. "On
behalf of the citizens of
Fernandina Beach and my fel-
low commissioners, we honor
the dedicated members of
Legion Post 54 and
Commander Tom Gora."
After the dedication, Gora
'said it was high time for the
post to own its headquarters
building.
'This post was chartered
in 1920, so next year well be
90 years old - and this is the
first home we've ever owned,"
he said "Well be able to do so
much more for the communi-
ty in a building this size than in
the old log cabin."

level will remain unchanged
from the previous fiscal year at

Mayor Susan Steger asked
Czymbor last month to begin
informing the, commission
when the city plans to,fill "criti-
cal" current job vacancies.
The reason for the pause in
"non-essential" spending, wrote
Czymbor ,in February, is
because the city was forced to
reduce its. projected tax rev-
enues because of the economic
recession. The cessation was
also necessary, he wrote,
because local employer Smurfit-
Stone Container Corp. is in
bankruptcy proceedings and
had not paid its annual proper-
ty tax bill.

Albertie the mistress


Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all
ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness;
come before his presence with singing.
The gospel explosion began with an
explosive praise and worship service
with Dea. Charles Green and Dea.
Michael Veal. I really love the Lord,
remember me. Thank you, Lord, for all
you've done for me.
It continued with a young man intro-
ducing his mother. Most young ladies
love to talk about Mother, but when you
see and hear a young man stand and
talk about the goodness of Jesus he
grew up with in his mom, it helps the
explosion to come on. A very gracious
and spiritual introduction from Bro.
Gregory Albertie about the mistress of
ceremony, his mother, Sis. Thelma
Albertie. She began by asking the Lord,
"How can I forget what you've done for
me? When we've been through the
storm and rain, we can never forget how
he brought us out." An explosive testi-
mony.
By the time the welcome came, God
was already in the house. They all
shouted, "Glory, Hallelujah!" We were in
the Lord's house, the gateway to heav-
en. You see, unity does not begin in
examining others, but in examining self.
It's not in demanding others change, but

"Encourage Yourself in the Lord," and
what an encouragement it was to see
how the Lord uses this young man, for

hath made us, and not we ourselves.

is no love like the love of Jesus." The

McIntyre and family said, "Jesus, oh,
how I love calling your name."
Then the home church choir
brought up the rear with, "I'm all sold
out. I have nothing to give. Being sold
out, we gave it all to the Lord."
What an explosion it was, full of the
gospel of Christ Jesus and his servants.
Our president, Sis. Semoria Charles,
said, "Thank you to all of God's chil-
dren."
Rev. Palmer, vice president, invited
the unsaved to come to Jesus. No one
left behind. Then was the benediction,
looking for a greater praise explosion
next time. All honor and praise be to
God, forever and ever.

* Understand your chil-

Evaluate when and how they
are using the computer.
S* Research tools for mon-
* itoring children's activities
and conduct an assessment
of how often your children
a are surfing the web and chat-
ting-with friends via instant
s Mmessenger services and e-
mail.
. . * Ask your children ques-
o tions like how many kids do
they know who have
MySpace pages? How
appealing do they find online
gaming? What would they
- like to be doing online if they
could?
S- m * Find out what parental ;
S* .. controls are available and if
* there is a cost. For example,
parental controls are includ-
Sed with AT&T Internet serv-

* Create customized pro-
- ^files for the entire family.
* Block access to specific
services such as e-mail, mes-


senger

groups,
Music
Sand
' mes-

boards.
* Provide permission
slips that allow children to
request access to unautho-
rized websites and parents
get to be the judge.
* Use tamper controls
that alert you if children
attempt to change the set-
tings.
* Control access seven
different ways: web filter, e-
mail, messenger, online,
timer, permission slips, and
weekly report cards that
detail your children's online
activities.
Remember to:
* Place the computer in a
"public" area of the house
where children are less
tempted to visit sites that are
off-limits. : ':; ':'
* Teacher y6ur children to
never share their name,
address, phone number,
school narh or any informa-
tion about their family while
online.
* Teach your children not
to talk to strangers online.
Kids should be'jt t as suspi-
cious of a stranger'online as
they are of strangers-in pub-
lic places.'

COMMUNITY THANKS

Make a difference
Newcomers Club of Amelia Island would
like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to every-
one who participated in USA Today's National
Make a Difference Day project on Oct. 24 to
provide food and cleaning supplies for the
Nassau Humane Society.
We would like to send a special acknowl-
edgement and thank you to the management
of Publix and Harris Teeter on Amelia Island
as well as Winn Dixie and Wal-Mart
Supercenter in Yulee, which allowed us to set
up collection baskets in front of their stores on
Oct. 24.
Thanks to the cooperation and generosity
of all participants, we were able to provide
Nassau Humane Society with several months
of food and cleaning supplies as well as a
financial contribution to apply to vet services.
This is especially helpful since in the current
economic downtown many animals are being
turned into the shelter as their families can no
longer afford to feed them.
The success of events like this depends on
the support of caring businesses and resi-

Golf helps baseball
The Yulee High School baseball team
would like to thank The Golf Club of North
Hampton for sponsoring the Second Annual
YHS Baseball Dugout Club Golf Tournament
The Yulee High School baseball team would
also like to express sincere gratitude to all of
the businesses in Nassau County that rallied
with donations to make the auction a huge suc-
cess.
The generosity of the local businesses,
the golfers and The Golf Club of North

cess.
We are pleased to see such community

Helping others
On Saturday, Nov. 7, the Barnabas resale
store New to You produced our second annu-
al Christmas sale. Hundreds came and wait-
ed patiently for the store to open and then
cheerfully tolerated long lines at the cash reg-
isters. We had over 30 volunteers give of their
time, unpacking boxes of treasures, adorn-
ing Christmas trees and stocking shelves. To
all our "blue apron" volunteers and our hard-
working staff - a big giant thank-you for the.
gift of time you gave to our event. We could not
have done it without you.
Shoppers told us of how pleased they-were
with the items they bought. One man told us
he was able to get the same shirt he had seen
in a catalogue for $39. Now he owned the
shirt he wanted and had more money to spend
on his family for Christmas. Another single
mom thanked us for helping out with her lim-
ited budget and how good she felt getting
such wonderful gifts for her family. We even
had a customer come for the second year in
a row from South Carolina!
All the items in this sale were donated by,
members of our community and we want to
give you all a resounding "thanks" for sharing
your "no longer needed" items with New to
You. The money collected from the sale of
your donated items goes directly into main-
taining Barnabas programs. Your dollars spent
at New to You might be assigned to the Crisis
Center, which helps with paying past-due
housing and utility bills. Or it might be des-
ignated to support the low-cost Barnabas
Dental Clinic or the free evening Samaritan
Medical Clinic, each of which has hundreds
of visits each year.
This past year has been extremely stress-
ful on our agency resources due to the deep
recession. So to all, thank you for helping us
help others.

Children need a


As our health care system is debated in
Congress and we continue to face
down pro-choice challenges in the
bill, I want to take the time to remind
all of us of'another vulnerable segment of our
population. This is one area in which we
should be in full agreement, but still one we
too often overlook: the thousands of children
-in need.of adoption by loving families who are
instead consigned to a struggling foster-care
system.
These are children who have been through
so much already, who have lost their parents
to tragedy, to the streets, or who have been
pulled through the trauma of abuse or aban-
donment by the very person who should love
them the most. Through no possible fault of
their own, these young ones have seen the
hardest side of humanity, and they desperately
need a steady and loving hand to guide therm.
As much as we may bicker over the politics
of life and the role of government in of our
social services, on a fundamental level the
hardship of these children deserves nothing
less than our compassion, support, and per-
haps the very opening of our homes. We must
understand this, not as a peripheral issue, but
as a true crisis of child welfare, and a battle-
ground for our future. . i.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


SBlessed view
I have a few questions I'd like to
ask your readers. First, let me tell
you a little about me. I am a 64-year-
old woman with a MBA and go to
work every day, helping my com-
pany do well - and it does. F>, I111 i-t,
of my life, I attended church every
Sunday. I am still a Christian - or fry
to be. Iwas a registered Republican .
from age 21 to age 55.
I find the way x: Ai ii-ncati are '
behaving depressing. In many cases
we have become downright mean
We used to be one of the most geui-
erous nations in thr- world . We are
still generous to a fault with our left-
overs. The problem is, the more we
have the fewer leftovers we seem
to have.
Some of us call ourselves Tea
Partiers, but the original Tea Party
was about "Taxation without
Representation." We voted and
chose our representatives. So I think
we have, not patriots, but a bunch of
sore losers.
Many on the right say that gov-
ernment does nothing well. We have
Fire departments, police depart-
ments and schools, including one
of the best university systems in the
world. All could be better, but we
could not provide any of Ut;s things
as individuals. We also have, inar-
guably, the best military in the
world.
Do we really believe that all we
do well is teach people to fight?
I have good health care insur-
ance through my company. But
every year, as the price goes up, the
coverage goes down and more
restrictions are added. I have trou-
ble convincing myself I have more
right to good health care than our
janitor, who works for an outside
service and is not covered. Do you
think you deserve more than this
hardworking person? There but for
the grace of God go you and me.
Soon I will have Medicare and my
children won't go broke taking care
of me in my declining years - gov-
ernment-run Medicare.
Which brings me to my next
question: How would Jesus vote?
Remember the scripture,
"Render unto Caesar...." Last time I
looked Washington and Lincoln and
other political figures were on our
money. You cannot take it with you.
Christ taught love, not hate, fear
and judgment. He instructed us to
leave judgment to God. The hate
and fear we were to leave out, peri-
od. This behavior is not American or
Christian and a lot of the time not
even civil. I have friends who do not
believe in the hereafter and yet they
are more tolerant, caring and
Christian than many so-called
Christians. Can our churches start
teaching love, tolerance and shar-
ing rather than judgment and fear?
Our children are watching and learn-
ing by our example.
Just a few thoughts from some-
one who has been blessed.

Again and again
The Nov. 6 headline "City to
review charter - again" brings a
chuckle to many in Fernandina
Beach. Numerous previous articles
could have contained the "again"
phrase. For example, "City to priva-
tize marina - again," or "City to
review downtown density - again."
The most number of against " could
probably go behind "City to develop
waterfront master plan - again,
again, again, again, etc., etc."
Looking into the crystal ball for
future headlines, how about "City
to review noise ordinance - again,"
and the classic would be "City and(
county to meet in joint session to
improve working relationships and
services to citizens - again."

much the locals were able to use
palm trees in their beautification

addition to take all those grass

Driving in
Nassau County
Driving in Nassau County!
What an experience. Everyone is
aware of the logging (and other)
trucks, and that just because the
light turns green, do not go until
one makes sure the trucks stopped.
But there are a few things easier
fixed and involve a bit of driving
courtesy.
First, I took the mandatory driv-
ers' ed in high school and my dad
was always -"teaching" me as I
watched him drive.
One thing he impressed on me
was that the left lane is for passing
and for when you are close to turn-
ing left. I am amazed how many
people I see around here that think
it is OK to go slow in the left lane. If
they would just move over they
would not have to deal with cars
'having to pass them on the
right. If they would simply let
those cars go by it would allow traf-
fic to flow instead of bottlenecking
when there are two cars going the
same speed in both lanes. I don't
care how fast the other guy is going.
I leave that to the sheriff's office.
After all, they are the ones who
should enforce the law, not you or
me.
I am also surprised that so many
people do not know that Florida law
requires you to turn on your head-
lamps when you turn on your
wipers. I see cars in the pouring rain
with their lights off. When it rains it
gets dark out. People can see you so
much better if you would just turn
them on. Now this does not mean
lurn on your flashers! You turn them
on and that bright flashing blinds
the guy behind you like taking
bright lights and shining then on
and off in your eyes. If you think it
is so dangerous driving in the rain,
do us other folks a favor and just
pull over.
Finally, I sure wish those fellas
with those cool-looking fog lights
would turn them off unless it's foggy
out. I'm getting older and the fog
lights are real shiny to penetrate a'
fog. They also hurt my eyes on a
dark road. I would not be surprised
to find some person with sensitivity
to light didn't wreck or swerve
because of them. It's bad enough


we have gone to halogens and that
no one ever attempts to make sure
their lamps are properly aimed any-
more. It would be nice to cut down
the light pollution.
Anyhow, that's my take on
things. Hope I didn't offend anyone.
A little courtesy goes a long way
in making our roads a bit nicer to
drive.

Its all relative
I find it avery sad sign the "Good
ole Boy" system's returning back
from Bosque Bello to haunt this city
once again. To give the hard-earned
money of the people of Fernandina
Beach, almost $10,000 of taxpayer
money, to Clinch Kavanaugh (a
cousin of our Mayor Susan Steger)
- for what? Who can honestly think
that Clinch Kavanaugh is the only
person in the entire world who can
address this matter ("City to pay
$9,250 more for title work," Oct. 30)?
The action taken by Mayor
Steger leaves a sickening whiff of
time in this city when graft ruled.
For those of you who are too young
to know and those who have not
lived in the city limits a long time, I
will school you. A little over 25 or
so years ago, maybe a few more,
the state of Florida with the gover-
nor's help arrested and removed
the Fernandina Beach City
Commissiofiers for corruption.
Some did jail time.
Susan Steger should have
recused herself from that vote to
enrich her cousin to be paid almost
$10,000 for what we call in baseball
an "instant replay," or in this case an
instant re-pay to Clinch Kavanaugh
for work already done. Am I missing
something? Has the Chicago way
made its way to Fernandina Beach?
We now live in a city that is insane-
ly out of fiscal control.
From my perspective, the man-
ner in which our mayor treated that
fellow who suggested the salaries
of city workers was a hoot ("City
adjusts pay grades up," Oct. 23). I
only wish, she had pom-poms,
yelling, "Rah, Rah, Rah Salary-expert
guy!" It was in my opinion a horrible
embarrassment for our city. Just
take a gander at what the salaries
proposed were, and I can assure
you there would be three lines
around the block of City Hall to get
those jobs. Give me a break - over
$26,000 a year to work at the skate-
board park. Huh? Remember that in
real dollar terms for us taxpayers,
with benefits, health, sick time,
when it rains, would add up to
around $37,000 per year. A city out
of control indeed.
Please do not get me wrong, I
am all for the skate park. I just hate


to see someone who goes to school
to be a teacher get paid the same as
the person who works in the skate-
board park.
Thank you, Mayor Steger.

Re: "Cow dies for Relay for Life,"

Call us party poopers, but if cow

Cows are gentle, sociable ani-

are extremely loving and protective

Using animals for cheap laughs

Suspended belief
After the quick muzzling of con-
ference coaches who had the temer-
ity to question officiating that clear-
ly favored Florida and Alabama (and
of-course protected their BCS stand-
ings), if there was any question
about who controls the S.E.C., all
doubts were resolved by the kid-
glove treatment accorded Brandon
Spikes. ("UF fighting through'stuff
.with eyes in -the prize," Nov. 11).
Consider the following:
(1) Spikes jumps on a defense-
less G6'rgia player and attempts to
inflict serious injury to his eyes and
face. This act was tantamount to
aggravated assault and battery.
(2) Once this act becomes fodder
for the national sports shows, Urban
Meyer comes down hard on Spikes
by suspending him for half of
Florida's next game, which just hap-
pened to be against that S.E.C. pow-
erhouse Vanderbilt.
(3) Once this "punishment" was
announced, the S.E.C. quickly rub-
ber-stamped its approval, effective-
ly sweeping it under the rug.
(4) Does anyone but the most
rabid Gator fan believe the punish-
ment meted out to Spikes fit the
crime? Has anyone ever heard of a
suspension for one half of a game?
If the next game was the S.E.C.
championship, do you think any sus-
pension would have been handed
out so quickly?

FDOT won't yield on



airport runway paving

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader -.'*. A ..


The Florida Department of
Transportation will not allow
the city to use an alternative
method to repave a runway at
the municipal airport.
The city may now award the
job to Duval Asphalt, the sec-
ond-highest bidder on the proj-
ect.
The city had initially award-
ed a bid for Hot in Place Paving
of St. Petersburg to use
reworked asphalt in place of
specified material, pending
FDOT approval.
City commissioners agreed
at a Tuesday workshop to
request a final proposal and
project schedule from Duval
Asphalt ofJacksonville to repair
runway 13-31.
Duval Asphalt's bid price is
currently about $900,000, but
according to Andrew Holesko of
Passero Associates, the city's'
engineering consultants, the
cost could be reduced by
$37,000 for "electrical item dele-

tions" to keep the project with-
in.the city's budget.
According to Holesko, run-
way 13-31 is a crosswind run-
way, one of three runways avail-
able for FDOT grant funding,
and is the only runway with a
published instrument approach
procedure.
City Airport Manager
Richard Johnson said at the
meeting that there was
"extreme urgency" in rehabili-
tating the runway, which he said
is in "very bad shape."
"The pavement engineer rec-
ommended it was OK for a few
more months," Johnson told
commissioners.
Commissioner Tim Poynter
said the runway's condition was
a "dire situation" and a possi-
ble liability to the city. He ques-
tioned whether the city should


hold out to save $30,000 to keep
the project within budget
If the project is not awarded
to Duval Asphalt, Holesko rec-
ommended the city re-bid it to
include additional runway reha-
bilitation.
Taxiways B and E, he said,
are expected to receive Federal
Aviation Administration fund-
ing in 2010, and could become
the base bid with Runway 13-31
becoming a "bid additive,"
which could save the city
money on that runway.
Holesko said that if the city
decided to repair B and E run-
ways, the project could begin
by May 1, 2010.
The bid for Hot in Place to
use recycled material for
Runway 13-31 was approved by
city commissioners in June.

1 public access.
s Ramakers' said in an e-mail
That he found out about the
- PEG committee during a com-
Smission meeting last summer.
s He said SearchAmelia had "no
t- intention" of broadcasting until
r a working plain for Channel 29
is finalized.
s Committee members at the
n organizational meeting, how-
h ever, agreed to have Ramakers
f put together about an hour's
i- worth of programming for the
y channel called "Faces of
A Amelia."
i- The broadcast will include
l events and activities available
r- around town, he said. Rooney
s- said it would be OK for
r Search Amelia to produce the
a- content, as long as it wasn't
v- promoting its own website.
e According to policy, advertising
g is not allowed on the city chan-
I, nel.
r Rooney also had a video
from the city police department
he said would start broadcast-
ing immediately.
Members also discussed
collecting video content from
local high school sporting
events and college film classes,
and eventually from the gen-
eral public after guidelines have
been established.
Johan Raniakers, who said
he has 35 years in internatioi
a almarketing and public anQ
government relations, as well
as 20 years in video produc-
tion, says-he hopes to make
the channel "a valuable con-
tributor to the local informa-
tion spectrum."
Thorn Ramakers has expe-
rience in telecommunications
and media broadcasting in the
Caribbean, and has written
grant applications for informa-
tion technology, radio and TV
broadcasting for Caribbean
governments.
. Two other, members,
Nadine Vaughn and Rick


Traum, are a married couple
with considerable experience
in media production. Traum is
an Emmy-winning producer
and former head of late-night
programming for NBC.
Vaughn, who had her own
radio show in California, is also
a licensed psychologist: in
Florida and had her own the-
ater company for many years.
Member Tony McAdoo is
founder of the Amelia Island
Film Festival; StanCbttle is a

local activist and one of the
founders of Concerned Friends

a journalist who has shot doc-
umentaries; and Angie Lester is
a clerk for the city of Ferriand-
ina Beach. Qualifications and
background information were
not available for the remaining
members.
The PEG channel has .a
budget of $5,000.for equipment
and maintenance; programs
are broadcast from a booth at
City Hall.
Rooney said the city's
broadcasting equipment does
not have the capability to edit
submissions, but some of the

"We want to get some more

Czymbor added that if the
committee decides to use both
public access channels avail-
able from Comcast, one could'
be a PEG channel and the
other could have more com-
mercial uses. "It could raise
significant amounts of rev-

Concrete, footprints and the power offorgiveness


"Get out of there," I yelled, but it
was too late. As I looked across the
damaged area, I couldn't believe
what I saw. Hours of grueling work
spoiled. And to think, it all happened
because of his ignorance. My sharp
tone of voice and angry facial expres-
sion instantly made him flee. The
interesting thing was, I didn't feel
bad about it.
Moose was his name, though at
that moment, a few other titles were
rolling through my head, and he was
a black Labrador retriever. If he had-
n't belonged to the people who had
hired me, I probably would have
chased him a lot further. At any rate,
his paw prints were everywhere.
And wouldn't you know it, it hap-
pened at a time when the concrete


patio I had just
poured was starting
to harden. I was
going to have to
work quickly.
Of all my years
in the construction


trade, before pas-
toring, the few
times I poured con-
PULPIT create proved to be
NOTES some of my most
challenging.
Granted, working
Pastor concrete by your-
Rob Goyette self is not always a
great idea, but it's
doable, especially if you don't have
unexpected guests roaming around.
In either case, the dayMoose gal-


loped through my outdoor master-
piece, I was left feeling like a career
change to the Nassau County animal
control department might be a very
rewarding one. Alright, I'm over it
now but it took me a little while.
Somewhere in the process of fill-
ing in .and smoothing paw prints, I
found grace to forgive him. I'm not
sure if it was the thought of how the
lime from the concrete had to be
burning his paws, or perhaps the
idea that he really didn't know what.
he was doing, but, in either case, I
managed to release him. Though for
a while I kept both eyes open, not
knowing if he in his ignorance might
return, the longer I worked, the less
the threat became, especially as the
concrete got harder.


Now I don't know about you, but
for me this story carries some really
important truths. Like, for instance,
the power of justice and the power of
forgiveness. While it's true I had felt
put out and wronged by what Moose
had done, it's also true that Moose
hadn't got off scot-free. His feet were
no doubt burning from the poor path
he had chosen. That to me is what
justice is about. In the end, we all
reap what we sow.
On the other hand, my decision
to get on with life and to release the
one who had messed things up for
me allowed me to focus on the task
at hand. You see, if I had spent all my
time chasing Moose, I would have
missed my opportunity to finish the
important work I was called to do.


Let's face it, this life is short. To
allow hurts and offenses to distract
us from our primary purpose just
isn't very wise. Like hardening con-
crete, each day of our lives gets us a
little closer to the final condition with
which we will either enjoy or
bemoan eternity. So, let's follow
Jesus' example and forgive. It's the
one sure way to fill in the dents and
smooth out the rough spots of life.
Besides, we've all walked in some
places we shouldn't have and are in
need of the very same forgiveness
from God.
"And forgive us our debts, as we
forgive our debtors." (Matt.6:12)

pact on energy bill


-ap1 aFall is a perfect time to
take stock of the energy
Susage in your home and busi-
�.. nesses and make simple
changes that will make an
su impact on monthly bills. FPL
has tips for reducing energy
usage and its online interac-
tive house is a great tool for
room-by-room energy-saving
suggestions that translate into
dollars saved. Just visit
www.fpl.com/toolkit.
By following FPL's myth-
Sbusters and Top 10 tips, cus-
tomers can take control over
their monthly energy bills.
For example:
Myth: "When my comput-
er is off, it isn't using electrici-
ty."
| Fact: In reality, computers,
TVs. DVD players, DVRs,
Stereos and even cell phone
chargers continue to draw
power even when they are not
in use. There are two easy
-,: -.. ways to save energy by pre-
venting these so-called "phan-
tom" loads: 1).unplug elec-
: W� tronics when not in use, or 2)
S.plug devices into a power strip
that you can turn off.
A word of caution: shutting
WER & LIGHT off some of these items may
. require you to reprogram cer-
-- --- tain functions when you turn
themback on so check your
owner's manual to be sure.
While your computer is
still powered up, take FPL's
free Online Home Energy
Survey to find out which appli-
* ances in your home are cost-
ing you the most. With the
information you provide, FPL
can give you a personalized,

FPL's Top 10 tips to save
energy (and, money)
1. Clean or replace your air
conditioner's filter every
month to help your unit run
more efficiently and reduce its
energy consumption.
2. Cool your home at 78
degrees or warmer with the
thermostat fan switch on
"auto." For additional savings,
raise your thermostat to 82
degrees or warmer when
you're away from home.
3. Heat your home at 68
degrees or cooler with the
thermostat fan switch on
"auto." To save even more,
lower your thermostat to 65
degrees or cooler at bedtime
or when you're away from
home.
4. Install a programmable
thermostat that you can set to
adjust your home's tempera-
ture automatically so you can
be comfortable when you're
home and saving money when
you're not.
5. Turn off ceiling fans
when you leave a room. A fan
that runs constantly can cost
up to $7 a month depending
on size and age.
6. Avoid pre-rinsing dishes
before putting in dishwasher
to save up to $70 i year.
7. Limit the time you run
your pool pump to no more
than six hours a day in the
summer and no more than
four hours a day in the winter.
8. Adjust the water level on
your washing machine to
match the load size, especially
when using hot water. Always
use a cold rinse.
9. Clean the lint filter in
your dryer before every load

FIELD TRIP


Thirteen Nassau County
Master Gardeners met recently
at the Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens for a guided tour of
the horticulture areas and
exhibits. Led by Director of
Horticulture and Facilities
Robert Chabot, right, and
Horticulturist Jennifer Best, the
group visited Savannah
.Blooms, the Trout River Plaza
and the Asian Gardens, where
many bamboo species can
almost literally be watched as
they grow!
Acknowledged "plant
nerds," the Master Gardeners
asked questions, noted plant
identifications, pondered where
new species might fit into the
county demonstration garden
and their own yards, and
soaked up knowledge to share
with other avid gardeners in
Nassau County.
The Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens serves as a tremen-
dous horticulture center for the
area. Both individual and group
tours are available. Contact the
zoo for information.

district cross country champion.


Strasser clinches

girls district title
BETH JONES
News-Leader
Both the girls and boys cross
country teams at Fernandina Beach
High School have qualified for
Saturday's regional meet.
"This is unprecedented," FBHS
Coach Mark Durr said. "We have
never qualified both boys and girls
teams during the same year. I have
taken boys teams, girls teams, but
never boys and girls together."
Just six girls and eight buyv.
teams advance from district. BotIh
the Pirate girls and boys placed
fifth at the district meet Nov. 5.
'There really isn't a question our
district is the most difficult in the
state," Durr said. "Our times would
have won the other district cham-


pionship in our region."
FBHS senior Stephanie Strasser
captured the girls title.
"Of course it helps when
Stephanie wins the whole meet
again, but we also got PRs (per-
sonal records) from Taylor Rowland
and Cassie Moore, which put us in
a position to move on," Durr said.
"The boys were phenomenal. I
am almost scared to say it, but it
looks like we are peaking at the
right time. These seniors, led by
Jazz (Tomassetti), have been
preparing for this for a couple of
years now and it is so exciting to see
all of their hard work paying off."
Senior Landon Kovalick placed
highest for the boys at 12th with a
time of 16:49.
"He would have moved on as an
individual anyway, but I know this is
more satisfying for him as it is for
Stephanie to see the whole girls
team advance," Durr said. "We have
been at this as a team since the


spring and through the August heat.
We have one more goal to focus on
and that is getting through region-
als together."
The state meet is Nov. 21.
Strasser took first place for the
girls with a time of 18:18.40. Twin
sister Christina Strasser finished
15th with 20:20.10. Taylor Sweet
was 41st with a 23:17.20. Rowland
was 49th with a 24:34 and Moore

Kathryn Stanley finished 87th with
a 32:57.
Bolles' girls won the 5K meet.
Bishop Kenny finish,'l second,
Episcopal third, Matanzas fourth.
Kovalick was 12th for the boys
with a time of 16:49.50 to lead the
Pirates to a fifth-place finish behind
Bishop Kenny, Nease, Bolles and
Matanzas. Yulee placed 13th and,


West Nassau finished 14th.
Adam Buechler was 20th with a

JOHN BURNS
For the News-LEader

The Amelia Island Sailing
Club held the last race of the
2009 season, the Stars & Stripes
Regatta, on Saturday
Mother Nature cooperated
with a cloudless blue sky, warm
temperatures andcwinds to 15
knots. Perfect for racing.
The starting gun' (OK, it was
really a horn) sounded at 10:30
a.m. and the boats fought to be
first across the starting line.
Fighting the three-knot current,
the boats- crossed the line
almost in uiisobi and headed'
for the first buoy, red 22 in the
St. Marys Inlet.
Since this leg of the race had
the boats racing into the wind,
the skippers devised their own
strategies for tacking to the
mark. In the end, Baby Blooz,
Mast Confusion and Sunday
Morning' Jazz turned the mark
first, second and third, respec-
tively.
The triangular course con-
sisted of three complete laps
from red buoy 2 just at the start
of Amelia River, east into St.
Marys Inlet, rounding red buoy
22 to port, then into
Cumberland Sound. turning


Boats jockey to be first across the line after the starting
horn.


red buoy 26, then back to red
buoy 2 to begin another lap.
The fourth and final lap was
completed when the boats
crossed between buoys red 26
and green 27 in Cumberland
Sound.
In the end, Baby Blooz fin-
ished in first place, Flamingo
second and Sunday Mornin'
Jazz claimed third place.


The Amelia Island Sailing
Club meets the first Tuesday
of the month at the Kraft
Athletic Clib. Guests are
always welcome.
Because of the holidays, the
next scheduled meeting is Feb.

Concert celebrates 'Music of a Kingly Nature'


JANE LINDBERG
For the News-Leader
In 1727, German composer
George E Handel was chosen to
write the music for the coronation ,
of George II of England. Doesn't it
seem strange that a composer
born in Germany, educated in Italy
and a British emigrant be selected
to perform this task? It's really
quite simple.
In 1708, King George I was rati-
fied as prince-elector of Hanover.
He was Queen Anne's closest
protestant relative when she died
in 1714, and he ascended to the
English throne upon her death. He
died in 1727 and his son, George
II, became king. The House of
Hanover was German and Handel
was Gerinan. It was a match made
in heaven, even though Maurice
Greene, who had recently been
appointed Organist and Composer
to the Royal Chapel, probably
should have been selected to write
the coronation music. I would'

WILMAALLEN
For the News-Leader
If you visited downtown
Fernandina lately, you proba-
bly wondered about the huge
restoration project under way
at 604 Ash St.
Soon, you will 'onder no
more. Thanks to the Amelia'
Island Museum, of History and
the building's:gracious owner, on
Dec. 4 and,5 you'll be ableto tour
what willsurely be one of down-
town's most elegant showplaces.
With grand double-decker porch-
es surrounding the entire build-
ing, it is one of five outstanding
homes that will be open to visitors
for the museum's annual holiday
home tour. , ,


Built around 1850, 604 Ash St.
recently housed the "Embers
Restaurant" and prior to that, a
store called 'The Christmas
House." Its new role will be that
of a magnificent guest house for
the ravishing "painted lady"
Victorian across the street at 601'
Ash, which will also be on the
tour.
Both homes are owned by
Californian Drusie Davis, who
grew up in Florida and has strong
roots in downtown Fernandina. A
great lover of antique houses,
Davis restored several on the
West Coast before tackling these
two Fernandina beauties.

American wines
ROBERT M.WEINTRAUB .
For the News-Leader : .
The most famous Thanksgiving painting is Norman
Rockwell's "Freedom From Want" published by the
Saturday Evening Post in March 1943 as part of a set
that embodied Franklin
Roosevelt's famous "Four
Freedoms" speech. The I
painting shows "grandma"
putting a plattered turkey on
a table surrounded by happy
faces, young and old.
What's missing from the
table, of course, is wine For whatever reason,
Rockwell felt wine was not appropriate on this particu-
lar Thanksgiving taBil.e. ".
But we are a drinking nation. The rise and fall of
Prohibition proved that. And while wine hasn't
reached the status of string bean casserole or pump-
kin pie, this Thanksgiving most tables, I dare say, will
have at least one type of wine (mine will have two, a
white and a red).
What wine to drink at this most American of all
meals? An American wine, of course. And it should be
a moderately priced wine; Thanksgiving is not an elit-
ist festival.
And there is the rub. Drinkable American wine
does not come cheap. About 20 years ago, the
American wine industry decided to cater to the afflu-
ent market and brush off the customer of limited
means. There is an abundance of low-priced California
wines, but most of them are mediocre at best The
market for quality, moderately priced wines was left to
the Italians, Australians, New Zealanders, South
Americans and others off the well-beaten path.
Even so, there are some decent wines to be had at
moderate prices. To find what was available, we can-
vassed area wine merchants and came up with some

TOUR Continuedfrom 1B
Fernandina for Thanksgiving in 2002 and spot-
ted a 'For Sale' sign on the house at 601 Ash,
the house our father was born in," Davis
recalls. "It was my grandfather's house but
was sold in 1950. When I learned it was for
sale again, I wanted it back."
601 Ash St. was always well cared for, she
says, but needed some updating, a new back
porch to match the one in the front, and to
emphasize the home's historic features, some
serious redecorating. Throughout the interior,
lush walls, window treatments and furnishings
complement the color palate and exquisite
architectural detailing on the outside. "The
inside is kind of ratcheted-up Victorian, with
some whimsical touches," Davis says.
The house quickly became a popular a
gathering place for "packs of family members"
who visit frequently from around the country.
So Davis began looking for a second home to
accommodate her enthusiastic extended fami-
ly. She finally settled on the big run-down
building across the street that she could view
from her front porch, and embarked on yet
another restorative adventure.
These gorgeous homes resonate with fami-
ly history, but it is family artistry that flows
throughout another house on the tour. Lynne
Anderson of 326 S. Seventh St will open her
delightful 1920-ish cottage for all to admire. It
is graced with lovely hand-made weavings,
stained glass windows and chandeliers, artful


carvings and other creations by her artistic
parents, grandmother and sister. Anderson
herself added arts and crafts wall stenciling
throughout the house, and the high quality
and character of the restoration testify to the
owner's creative bent.
"I've always been partial to cottages," she
says. "I wanted something thatneeded renova-
tion that I could put my mark on." One major
challenge was constructing a staircase to
access the attic, which would become a new
master suite. A kitchen wall was ultimately
bumped out to make the plan work perfectly.
Another challenge was building a garage and
apartment in the backyard. "My goal was to
respect the architecture of the house, so I'm
very pleased when people are surprised to
learn that it is new construction."
Another very special home on the tour is a
soft yellow beauty with oodles of fancy trim to
set off its broad white porches. Museum
records say this home at 120 N. Sixth St., in
Fernandina's so-called "Silk Stocking District,"
was built in 1876 by Josiah Prescott. Prescott -
served as a lieutenant during the Union occu-
pation of Fernandina. He later returned,
bought the lot in 1872 and built his family
home several years later.
Of course, over the years there have been
many additions and changes. Current owners,
Charlotte and Roland Knight, who purchased
the Prescott House six years ago, added an
extraordinary screened entertainment pavil-
ion, pool and pool house in the back. The'


Knights had admired the neighborhood's his-
toric ambiance and proximity to downtown for
years. "We feel very fortunate to live here,"
Charlotte Knight admits. "We love the porch-
es, the neighbors and feel like we're part of
history."
The final home on the tour is the hand-
some 401 S. Seventh St. As with other area
homes, contradictions and mysteries surround
it. Historic Property Associates, Inc. of St.
Augustine believes it was built in 1902. But
EB. Cullom of Florence, S.C., is certain his
. grandmother lived in the house from 1877-86,
when it was owned by her father, W.J.
Woodward, who may have been vice consulate
of Uruguay. Apparently there were several
international consulates in Fernandina's ship-
ping heyday.
Over the decades, however, shifting for-
tunes and a number of devastating fires took
their toll on the home. "It broke my heart to
see it literally falling to pieces and no one
seemed to care," said Frances Harper, another
Woodward descendent who has pictures of the
house in earlier days. "When I saw the
destruction, I felt sure it would just be razed.
I'm so glad the house has been saved."
Its saviors were Todd Kemp and Brian
Boyer, who rescued the once lovely building in
2008 and began a complete, stunning restora-
tion. The tall, handsome house with multiple
porches and lush landscaping is now in impec-
cable, pristine condition and makes a wonder-
ful highlight to the tour.

"These are all fabulous homes and none
have been open to the public before, at least in
recent years," says Trish Dooley, co-chairman
of the event. "The museum is so grateful to the
owners for making them available for this
major fundraiser."
All of the homes will be decked out for the
holidays and strolling carolers in period dress
will add Victorian flair throughout the neigh-
borhood, adds Anne Kelly, the event's co-
chairman
Hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Dec. 4 and 5.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on the day
of the tour. For a special treat, Barbara and
George Sheffield will be opening up the
beloved Bailey House for an authentic
Victorian tea served by "Museum Madams."
Sharon and Allen Lennon, portraying the
home's original owners, Kate and Effingham
Bailey, for whom the gorgeous home is
named, will greet their guests and tell about
Victorian life in Fernandina. Tea tickets are
$15 each. Tea times are 2, 3 or 4 p.m. each day,
but.space is limited so order your tickets early.
Advance tickets for both the tour and tea

hurt that Handel's music was
considered the finest being
written in Britain at the time.
Handel was also allowed to
choose the texts rather than
asking the Archbishop of
Canterbury to perform this
task. He is quoted as saying,
"I have read my Bible very
well, and shall choose for
myself."
There may have been
some controversy over the
selection of Handel over
Greene and there is evidence
that the two men had dis-
agreements over time. Mostly
though, it was over the prob-
lem of the friendly relation-
ship between Greene and
Bononcini, Handel's archrival
in the opera world. Handel,
who was known for borrow-
ing themes from other com-
posers, was asked why he
borrowed material from
Bononcini. He is said to have
replied, "It's much too good
for him; he did not know what
to do with it."
Charles Burney, credited
with writing the first music
history book, A General
History ofMusic, made this
comment: "Maurice Greene
hadcthe.misfortune to live in
the age and neighborhood of a
musical giant, with whom he
was utterly unable to contend,
but by cabal and alliance with
his enemies. Handel was too
prone to treat inferior artists
with contempt; what provoca-
tion he had received from
Greene, after their first
acquaintance, when our coun-
tryman had a due sense of
great powers, I know not; but
for many years of his life, he
(Handel) never spoke of him
(Greene) without some injuri-
ous epithet."
In the preface to the
anthems, we have this account
from the Norwich Gazette
dated Oct. 7, 1727: "Yesterday
there was a Rehearsal of the
* Coronation Anthem in
Westminster-Abbey, set to
Musick by the famous Mr.
Hendall: There being 40
Voices, and about 160 violins,
Trumpets, hautboys, Kettle-
Drums, and Bass's propor-
tionable; besides an Organ,
which was erected behind the
Altar: And both the Musick
and the Performers, were the
Admiration of all the
Audience."

nation. We have changed the
order of the anthems and will
do them as follows: "Let thy
Hand Be Strengthened"
(Psalm 89:13-14), "My Heart
is Inditing" (Psalm 45), "The
King Shall Rejoice" (Psalm 21)
and concluding with "Zadok
the Priest" (1st Kings 1). Two
of the anthems conclude with
an "Alleluia" Chorus. At many
turns one can anticipate
Messiah, though it was writ-
ten 14 years later in 1741. "My
Heart is Inditing" is sung by a
solo quartet that includes
Micki Smith, soprano (Friday
night); Emma Bledspe, sopra-
no (Sunday afternoon);
Ginger Lindberg, alto; Wayne
Howard, tenor; and Bob
Ehrman, bass. "Zadok the
Priest" uses text that goes
back to.the coronation of King
Edgar in 973 AD and was
sung during the anointing of
the king. Handel's setting of
the text has been sung at
every coronation since 1727.
When Charles becomes King
of England, we will hear it
again.
The coronation.of George
II and Queen Caroline took
place at Westminster Abbey
on Oct. 11, 1727 and one can
be assured that those in atten-
dance were electrified by the
beauty and the pageantry of
the music!
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
composed Coronation Mass,
K317 in the year 1779. It was
his first effort in the services
of Hieronymous Colloredo,
Prince Archbishop of Salzburg
and was composed for an
Easter day service on April 4,
1779. His life was in total dis-
array after spending time in
Paris where he had been total-
ly unsuccessful in obtaining
work. It was during this time
that his mother had become ill
and died and having to return
to Salzburg left him in a state
of depression and frustration.
In order to please his father,
he agreed to take the job with
Colloredo. The two were like
oil and water and the relation-
ship, which was never compli-
mentary, continued on a
downward slide.
Roye Wates of Boston
University states, "Archbishop
Colloredo, an 'Enlightened'
prince of the church, insisted
on strict rules for liturgical
music, the same rules promul-
gated by Emperor Joseph II in
Vienna. Their aim was to
focus attention on the Mass
itself and away from what was
perceived as musical ostenta-
tion. Of course, this infuriated


musicians." The idea also was
that it not last more than 45
minutes. Mozart was indeed
filled with angst at having to
compose a "full-scale Mass
with soloists, chorus and
orchestra, a work suitable for
Salzburg's massive cathedral
and written in a style appropri-
ate to the splendor and joy of
Easter Sunday - all in less
than 45 minutes."
Not only did Mozart stay
within the 45 minute limit, he
wrote one that lasted only 30
minutes and used soloists as a
quartet instead of giving them
the long solos that are found
in many of his other masses.
The solo quartet for the per-
formance is Diana Twiggs,
soprano; Deborah Watford,
alto; Matt Gingery, tenor; and
Mac Gravely, bass.
He truly wrote an incredi-
ble Mass that has been
embraced by audiences since
its inception and is one of
Mozart's most popular works.
All the movements are in C
major except the "Agnus Dei,"
which is in FImajor. The con-
clusion of the work borrows
thematic material from the
"Kyrie," as was done in the
Requiem. Further, the Agnus
Dei is a primarily a soprano
solo and reminiscent of "Dove
Sono" from the Marriage of
Figaro. The work took on the
name "Coronation" because it
was performed for the corona-
tion of Francis I in Prague,
1792 and probably Leopold II,
in 1791, the year of Mozart's
death. The Mass is truly a cel-
ebration in the finest sense of
the word!

The city filled more job vacancies
this year than last despite economic

A few part-time jobs have not been
filled, but there is no hiring freeze on
full-time jobs. According to city docu-

hired in fiscal 2008-9, comparedto 14
hired during the previous fiscal year.
City Human Resources Director

the last two years were mostly "back-

who resigned or whose employment
was terminated. Some employees were
also hired to fill spots left vacant by
internal promotions, she said. -

Estate pays


$19,471 for


$1.3 million


embezzler
RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
has agreed to settle a lawsuit against
the estate of Julia Mixon, a county
employee who confessed in 2005 to
embezzling more than $1Smillion in
taxpayer money.
Mixon committed suicide days after
admitting the theft to investigators..
The county filed suit against her estate
the same year in an attempt to recov-
er some of the $1.3 million she embez-
zled.
The commission agreed Monday
to settle the suit for $19,471.
According to the settlement agree-
ment, the estate acknowledged that
Mixon had stolen county funds while
employed at the Clerk of Court's
Office, and tfe county accepted that no
other assets beyond the $19,471 were
directly attributable to the embezzle-
ment.
Mixon, a finance supervisor in the
clerk's office, was fired in February
2005 by newly elected Clerk of Court
John Crawford after irregularities were
discovered in her accounting.
During a subsequent probe by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, Mixon admitted to steal-
ing county funds - sometimes as much
as $4,000 a day - on an almost daily
basis beginning in 1996. On April 22,
exactly one week after her confession
to FDLE investigators, Mixon died of
a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a
Jacksonville hotel room.
County Commissioner Mike Boyle
said that although the settlement
amount falls far short of Mixon's seven-
figure theft, the county is unlikely to
realize more.
"What you have to understand is
that's the last piece'of the puzzle," he
said Tuesday. "Farmand and Farmand

McBee has been in custody
since an April 1 arrest for bur-

appear for driving while license
is suspended or revoked and
one count of failure to appear
for DUI, according to the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office

with a mattress, took an
"aggressive position" in the cor-

said.
A deputy was "forced, by
inmate McBee's actions
and refusal to cooperate, to
kick the mattress out of
the way and deploy (a stun gun)
on the subject." When one of
the gun's probes failed to
penetrate McBee's clothing,
he was "drive stunned" twice'


once in the right shoulder

the report stated.
Drive stun is when the
device is placed directly on the

x, zinfan- American locales for growing
pinot noir is Sonoma's
Russian River valley and as of
this writing Winn Dixie has
the Kenwood Estate pinot on
sale at $15, a savings of $5.
Another interesting pinot
Snoir available here at an
attractive price is the
t MacMurray Ranch Central
Coast varietal available at
Harris Teeter for $11.
Although MacMurray Ranch
has a more expensive pinot
noir from Russian River, it is
made in the jammy, fruit-for-
ward style that is the current
California fad. The Central
Coast version - from the
Sanfa Lucia highlands - is a
drier wine in the Oregon or
Burgundy style.
I always have a bottle of
riesling on the Thanksgiving
table; its off-dry, full-bodied
flavor works very well with
turkey and ham. This grape
S likes cooler climates so the
best American rieslings come
from our Pacific northwest.
They are not sweet like
German and California ries-
* lings. There are two excellent
Columbia River rieslings avail-
able here for under $15:
* Chateau Ste. Michelle ($13-14
at Winn Dixie and Harris
Teeter), and Covey Run (cur-
* rently on sale at Winn Dixie
for $11).
Another wine that goes
* well with turkey or ham is
ros6, which has a hard sell
here, but can be a very fine


wine in its dry form. It is more
full bodied than white wine
and less powerful than red.
Toad Hollow is one of the bet-
ter wineries in Sonoma and
they produce a dry pinot noir
ros6 they call "Eye of Toad."
We first sampled this wine
during a tour of Sonoma a
couple of years ago and were
delighted to find it on a Harris
Teeter shelf for only $11.
A local trend is to cook
turkey in a deep fat fryer. This
Cajun technique keeps in the
bird's juices and produces a
crispy skin. If you use this
method with Cajun spices,
you will want a stronger wine
and this takes us to zinfandel,
a very American wine
(although like most of us, it
comes from someplace else).
Unfortunately, zin prices
have taken a bullfrog leap in
recent years and the best zins
in our tasting of two years
ago, Sin Zin and Dry Creek,
are now selling over $20.
Frei Brothers Reserve
zinfandel, not as good as the
other two, is currently avail-
able at Harris Teeter for $17
with a $2 coupon on the bot-
tle.
For those whose prefer-
ences run to chardonnay,
there's the Cupcake wine at
Teeter for $9 and next door
Amelia Liquors has put a good
$20 Freemark Abbey chard on
sale at $14.
The local wine club, the
Cellar Dwellers, will hold a
sparkling wine tasting on Dec.
5; I will report the results in
December.

HEATHER A PERRY
News-Leader
Authentic Impact is a group
with a mission. Whether it is
helping local families in need
or reaching out to people in
other parts of the wdrld, the
committed members of this
organization say their aim is to
"do as Christ would do if He
were in our situation." '
Founder Darryl Bellar, pas-
tor of the Journey Church, says,
"I believe the Bible is very clear
that we are never more like
Jesus Christ than when we are
giving to those less fortunate."
"It is our mission to recog-
nize the desperate needs of
impoverished children and fam-
ilies locally, and throughout the
world. We will provide them
with clothing, shelter, educa-
tion and medical care, as well as
minister to their spiritual, emo-
tional and psychological needs."
Orie local outreach is pro-
viding food through Second
Harvest.
"Due to the economy and
loss of jobs, many men and
women stood in line to get food
from Second Harvest trucks
during an outreach with tears in


their eyes, thanking (us) for put-
ting food on their table," said
member Angel Sizemore.
"Members of Authentic
Impact served ,vith the Journey
Church and helped to give gifts

The city filled more job vacancies
this year than last despite economic
recession and City Manager Michael
Czymbor ordering a "temporary ces-
sation of all non-essential general fund
expenditures" in February.
A few part-time jobs have not been
filled, but there is no hiring freeze on
full-time jobs. According to city docu-
ments, 18 full-time employees were
hired in fiscal 2008-9, compared to 14
hired during the previous fiscal year.
City Human Resources Director
Robin Marley said employees hired in
the last two years were mostly "back-
fills," taking the place of employees
who resigned or whose employment
was terminated. Some employees were
also hired to fill spots left vacant by
internal promotions, she said.
The total number of full-time city
employees has remained at 211, and
there are no plans to add jobs in the
2009-10 fiscal year. Czymbor wrote in
a July budget message to city com-

Estate pays


$19,471 for


$1.3 million


embezzler
RYAN SMITH
News Leader
The Nassau County Commission
has agreed to settle a lawsuit against
the estate of Julia Mixon, a county
employee who confessed in 2005 to
embezzling more than $1 million in
taxpayer money.
Mixon committed suicide days after
admitting the theft to investigators.
The county filed suit against her estate
the same year in an attempt to recov-
er some of the $1.3 million she embez-
zled.
The commission agreed Monday
to settle the suit for $19,471.
According to the settlement agree-
ment, the estate acknowledged that
Mixon had stolen county funds while
employed at the Clerk of Court's
Office, and the county accepted that no
other assets beyond the $19,471 were
directly attributable to the embezzle-
ment.
Mixon, a finance supervisor in the
clerk's office, was fired in February
2005 by newly elected Clerk of Court
John Crawford after irregularities were
discovered in her accounting.
During a subsequent probe by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, Mixon admitted to steal-
ing county funds - sometimes as much
as $4,000 a day - on an almost daily
basis beginning in 1996. On April 22,
exactly one week after her confession
to FDLE investigators, Mixon died of
a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a
Jacksonville hotel room.
County Commissioner Mike Boyle
said that although the settlement
amount falls far short of Mixon's seven-
figure theft, the county is unlikely to
realize more.
"What you have to understand is
that's the last piece of the puzzle," he
said Tuesday. "Farmand and Farmand

Tips to monitor


children online


For the News Leader

The knowledge and
access the Internet can pro-
vide is a great thing when
used properly, so AT&T is
offering the following
Internet safety tips to
help ensure that families
continue to have the
safest Internet experience
possible.
* Understand your chil-
dren's computer habits.
Evaluate when and how they
are using the computer.
* Research tools for mon-
itoring children's activities
and conduct an assessment
of how often your children
are surfing the web and chat-
ting with friends via instant
messenger services and e-
mail.
* Ask your children ques-
tions like how many kids do
they know who have
MySpace pages? How
appealing do they find online
gaming? What would they
like to be doing online if they
could?
* Find out what parental
controls are available and if
there is a cost. For example,
parental controls are includ-
ed with AT&T Internet serv-
ice and allow you to:
* Create customized pro-
files for the entire family.
* Block access to specific
services such as e-mail, mes-


p
A


senger
chat
groups,
music
and
mes-
sage
boards.


* Provide permission
slips that allow children to
request access to unautho-
rized websites and parents
get to be the judge.
* Use tamper controls
that alert you if children
attempt to change the set-
tings.
* Control access seven
different ways: web filter, e-
mail, messenger, online,
timer, permission slips, and
weekly report cards that
detail your children's online
activities.
Remember to:
* Place the computer in a
"public" area of the house
where children are less
tempted to visit sites that are
off-limits.
* Teach your children to
never share their name,
address, phone number,
school name or any informa-
tion about their family while
online.
* Teach your children not
to talk to strangers online.
Kids should be just as suspi-
cious of a stranger online as
they are of strangers in pub-
lic places.

LOOKING BACK


Eva Mae Hatton
Mrs. Eva Mae Hatton, age
65, of Yulee, passed away on
Sunday afternoon, November
8, 2009 at Baptist Medical
Center - Jacksonville.
Born in Brunswick, GA, she
was the daughter of the late
George Washington and Cora
Mae Lewis Smith. As a young
woman working at Stephens in
Kingsland, GA she met Wayne
K Hatton, whom she married in
1961. In 1963, their son Lynn-
wood was born. After living for
a number of years in Yulee and
Kingsland, Mr. Hatton's work
required that they move to
Louisiana where they lived for
approximately ten years. They
would eventually move to
Arkansas before coming home
to Nassau County in 1986. Mrs.
Hatton was an accomplished
Seamstress and had owned
Hatton's Draperies in Fernan-
dina Beach. Her family recalls
her love of making things with
her hands and the smiles on
young faces as they became
owners of her creations.
She was Baptist by faith.
Mrs. Hatton is preceded in

David John Lampson passed
away October 23, 2009 at his
home surrounded by his two
loving daughters.
He was born July 22, 1939
in London, England, to the late
Kenneth and Marjorie Lamp-
son. Serving in the British
Army, David was commissioned
2nd Lieutenant in the 5th Royal
Inniskilling Dragoon Guards.
The majority of David's life was
concentrated on his passion for
the fine arts and he was an
accomplished writer, actor, pho-
tographer and singer.
Intrigued by different cul-
tures he traveled all over the
world. This passion for travel
eventually led him to Amelia
Island where he worked as a
professional tennis instructor.
He was an amazing father and a
best friend to many.

Veterans mark



day, building


RYAN SMITH
News Leader

American Legion Post 54
dedicated a new post building
Wednesday. The new building,
located at 626 S. Third St., is
the culmination of about 10
years of planning and effort.
The post's old building, a city-
owned log cabin located at 12
South 11th St., had been in
use by the Legion since about
1940.
"This is the first time in the
history of American Legion
Post 54 that we've had our own
building," Post 54 Commander
Tom Gora told the guests at
the dedication ceremony. "...
This is like a dual event. We
have Veterans Day, and we're
here to dedicate this building."
Paul Martel, the American
Legion's national sergeant-at-
arms, reflected on the impor-
tance of veterans serving their
communities.
"What is a veteran?" he
asked. "The veteran is an over-
the-road truck driver. The vet-
eran is a nurse. The veteran is
a factory worker. But what are
they? They are ordinary peo-
ple doing an extraordinary job.
"You stood tall and you
answered the call of your coun-
try ... and when you were done
doing the job for your coun-
try, you did not shirk doing
your job for your community.
That's why you joined this post

It's kind of like throwing good

"The strange part of this
puzzle is that most of the
money we recovered is going
back to the state, so it didn't
make a lot of sense to spend
Nassau County money to send
money to the state," Boyle
added. "All or most of the

The county fired the audit-

your duty."
"If there's any day that you
should dedicate a new post,
today would be the ideal day to
do it," said Phil Hearlson,
Department of Florida com-
mander. "Why do I say that?
Because our forefathers gave
us this day.... You committed
yourself a number of years ago
that you wanted a bigger and
better post, and I applaud you
for that."
Fernandina Beach Mayor
Susan Steger also addressed
the audience. "As we gather
together today, let us begin by
honoring the past. We honor
the founders and leaders of
Post 54 who are no longer
here, those whose hard work
and dedication put us where
we are today," she said. "On
behalf of the citizens of
Fernandina Beach and my fel-
low commissioners, we honor
the dedicated members of
Legion Post 54 and
Commander Tom Gora."
After the dedication, Gora
said it was high time for the
post to own its headquarters
building.
'"This post was chartered
in 1920, so next year we'll be
90 years old - and this is the
first home we've ever owned,"
he said. "We'll be able to do so
much more for the communi-

level will remain unchanged
from the previous fiscal year at

Mayor Susan Steger asked
Czymbor last month to begin
informing the commission
when the city plans to fill "criti-
cal" current job vacancies.
The reason for the pause in
"non-essential" spending, wrote
Czymbor in February, is
because the city was forced to
reduce its projected tax rev-
enues because of the economic
recession. The cessation was
also necessary, he wrote,
because local employer Smurfit-
Stone Container Corp. is in
bankruptcy proceedings and
had not paid its annual proper-
ty tax bill.
The city Utilities Depar-

FDOT won't yield on



airport runway paving

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader , A


The Florida Department of
Transportation will not allow
the city to use an alternative
method to repave a runway at
the municipal airport.
The city may now award the
job to Duval Asphalt, the sec-
ond-highest bidder on the proj-
ect.
The city had initially award-
ed a bid for Hot in Place Paving
of St. Petersburg to use
reworked asphalt in place of
specified material, pending
FDOT approval.
City commissioners agreed
at a Tuesday workshop to
request a final proposal and
project schedule from Duval
Asphalt of Jacksonville to repair
runway 13-31.
Duval Asphalt's bid price is
currently about $900,000, but
according to Andrew Holesko of
Passero Associates, the city's
engineering consultants, the
cost could be reduced by
$37,000 for "electrical item dele-


C ity airportt Manager Kicnara jonnson
said there was "extreme urgency" in
rehabilitating the runway.


tions" to keep the project with-
in the city's budget.
According to Holesko, run-
way 13-31 is a crosswind run-
way, one of three runways avail-
able for FDOT grant funding,
and is the only runway with a
published instrument approach
procedure.
City Airport Manager
Richard Johnson said at the
meeting that there was
"extreme urgency" in rehabili-
tating the runway, which he said
is in "very bad shape."
"The pavement engineer rec-
ommended it was OK for a few
more months," Johnson told
commissioners.
Commissioner Tim Poynter
said the runway's condition was
a "dire situation" and a possi-
ble liability to the city. He ques-
tioned whether the city should


hold out to save $30,000 to keep
the project within budget.
If the project is not awarded
to Duval Asphalt, Holesko rec-
ommended the city re-bid it to
include additional runway reha-
bilitation.
Taxiways B and E, he said,
are expected to receive Federal
Aviation Administration fund-
ing in 2010, and could become
the base bid with Runway 13-31
becoming a "bid additive,"
which could save the city
money on that runway.
Holesko said that if the city
decided to repair B and E run-
ways, the project could begin
by May 1, 2010.
The bid for Hot in Place to
use recycled material for
Runway 13-31 was approved by
city commissioners in June.

New committee's mission


to revamp city TV channel


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
A new PEG (public, educa-
tional and government) com-
mittee has been created to
develop programming for the
city's television channel pro-
vided by Comcast.
The 11 members - chosen
by City Manager Michael
Czymbor - include Jim Ewing,
Nadine Vaughn, Rick Traum,
Susan Alexander, Tony
McAdoo, Thom Ramakers,
Julie Ferreira, Angie Lester,
Patricia Borns, Stan Cottle and
Johan Ramakers. City technol-
ogy director Mike Rooney is
acting as chairman/coordina-
tor of the group.
A PEG policy, meant to give
the city more control over the
city's public access Channel 29,
was approved by commission-
ers in July. Czymbor at that
time recommended a citizen
advisory committee be formed.
The committee met at City
Hall for it second organizational
meeting Nov. 4. Members
came up with a mission state-
ment and a plan to collect exist-
ing video for the station's pro-
gramming catalog. Members
also agreed to research exist-
ing PEG schedules in other
municipalities.
PEG committee members
and brothers Johan and Thomrn
Ramakers operate the Search
Amelia website, which began
broadcasting on the city chan-
nel in late June, before the city
had formalized a PEG policy. A
subsidiary of Pirate Commu-
nications, the informational
website, which sells local adver-
tising, employs City Commis-
sioner Eric Childers' sister
Judie Mackie and brother-in-

City TV guidelines
Live or taped broadcasts will be considered unaccept-
able and will not be broadcast by the city if in the opinion of
the city manager they contain any of the following:
*Any advertising material designed to promote the sale
of commercial products or services, including advertising by
or on behalf of candidates seeking public office;
*Any obscene or indecent material, including but not lim-
ited to sexual content;
*Any advertising of or information concerning any lottery,

public access.
Ramakers said in an e-mail
that he found out about the
PEG committee during a com-
mission meeting last summer.
He said SearchAmelia had "no
intention" of broadcasting until
a working plan for Channel 29
is finalized.
Committee members at the
organizational meeting, how-
ever, agreed to have Ramakers
put together about an hour's
worth of programming for the
channel called I .... of
Amelia."
The broadcast will include
events and activities available
around town, he said. Rooney
said it would be OK for
Search Amelia to produce the
content, as long as it wasn't
promoting its own website.
According to policy, advertising
is not allowed on the city chan-
nel.
Rooney also had a video
from the city police department
he said would start broadcast-
ing immediately.
Members also discussed
collecting video content from
local high school sporting
events and college film classes,
and eventually from the gen-
eral public after guidelines have
been established.
Johan Ramakers, who said
he has 35 years in internation-
al marketing and public and
government relations, as well
as 20 years in video produc-
tion, says he hopes to make
the channel "a valuable con-
tributor to the local informa-
tion spectrum."
Thom Ramakers has expe-
rience in telecommunications
and media broadcasting in the
Caribbean, and has written
grant applications for informa-
tion technology, radio and TV
broadcasting for Caribbean
governments.
Two other members,
Nadine Vaughn and Rick


Traum, are a married couple
with considerable experience
in media production. Traum is
an Emmy-winning producer
and former head of late-night
programming for NBC.
Vaughn, who had her own
radio show in California, is also
a licensed psychologist in
Florida and had her own the-
ater company for many years.
Member Tony McAdoo is
founder of the Amelia Island
Film Festival; Stan Cottle is a
television producer specializ-
ing in marketing and commu-
nications; Julie Ferreira is a
local activist and one of the
founders of Concerned Friends
of Fernandina; Patricia Borns is
a journalist who has shot doc-
umentaries; and Angie Lester is
a clerk for the city of Fernand-
ina Beach. Qualifications and
background information were
not available for the remaining
members.
The PEG channel has a
budget of $5,000 for equipment
and maintenance; programs
are broadcast from a booth at
City Hall.
Rooney said the city's
broadcasting equipment does
not have the capability to edit
submissions, but some of the
committee members, such as
the Ramakers, have those
resources. Rooney said he
hoped to purchase a portable
video camera to film events
around town.
"We want to get some more
dynamic programming out
there," Rooney said.
Czymbor added that if the
committee decides to use both
public access channels avail-
able from Comcast, one could
be a PEG channel and the
other could have more com-
mercial uses. "It could raise
significant amounts of rev-
enue," said Czymbor. "It's done
in a lot of communities."

A deputy was "forced, by

HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader
Authentic Impact is a group
with a mission. Whether it is
helping local families in need
or reaching out to people in
other parts of the world, the
committed members of this
organization say their aim is to
"do as Christ would do if He
were in our situation."
Founder Darryl Bellar, pas-
tor of the Journey Church, says,
"I believe the Bible is very clear
that we are never more like
Jesus Christ than when we are
giving to those less fortunate."
"It is our mission to recog-
nize the desperate needs of
impoverished children and fam-
ilies locally, and throughout the
world. We will provide them
with clothing, shelter, educa-
tion and medical care, as well as
minister to their spiritual, emo-
tional and psychological needs."
One local outreach is pro-
viding food through Second
Harvest.
"Due to the economy and
loss of jobs, many men and
women stood in line to get food
from Second Harvest trucks
during an outreach with tears in


their eyes, thanking (us) for put-
ting food on their table," said
member Angel Sizemore.
"Members of Authentic
Impact served with the Journey
Church and helped to give gifts
and food to 800 children and
380 families at Christmas in
2007 and 2008. We listened to
mothers and fathers share their
stories, most of them having no
idea how they were going to
provide food or gifts for
Christmas for their families."
Assistance is also provided
at the beginning of the school
year.
"We partnered with busi-
nesses such as Nike and Staples
to provide backpacks, tennis
shoes and school supplies to
approximately 400 children."
Authentic Impact has an out-
reach for men and women serv-
ing in the military, which allows
them to reconnect with their
families in a resort location.
"Warrior Vacations is an awe-
some outreach to our military
personnel and their families,"
said Sizemore.
"We provide a donated facil-
ity to military personnel and
their family when they have
returned from deployment to


Iraq or Afghanistan. We have
many donated properties that
the owners are grateful for the
opportunity to give back to our
military families who have given
so much for our freedom."
For information go to
www.warriorvacations.org.
A foreign mission team just
returned from Guatemala this
past month after partnering
with Second Harvest and other
businesses, corporations and
individuals to supply food, cloth-
ing, handicap ramps, home
repairs and many other needs.
Authentic Impact hosted the
First Annual Florida-Georgia
Turkey Shoot-Out Oct. 30 at
Amelia National Golf Club to
raise funds to help families in
the community enjoy a
Thanksgiving meal.

COMMUNITY THANKS

Make a difference
Newcomers Club of Amelia Island would
like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to every-
one who participated in USA Today's National
Make a Difference Day project on Oct. 24 to
provide food and cleaning supplies for the
Nassau Humane Society.
We would like to send a special acknowl-
edgement and thank you to the management
of Publix and Harris Teeter on Amelia Island
as well as Winn Dixie and Wal-Mart
Supercenter in Yulee, which allowed us to set
up collection baskets in front of their stores on
Oct. 24.
Thanks to the cooperation and generosity
of all participants, we were able to provide
Nassau Humane Society with several months
of food and cleaning supplies as well as a
financial contribution to apply to vet services.
This is especially helpful since in the current
economic downtown many animals are being
turned into the shelter as their families can no
longer afford to feed them.
The success of events like this depends on
the support of caring businesses and resi-
dents, all of which came together to help crea-
tures who are abandoned and can't help them-
selves.

Golf helps baseball
The Yulee High School baseball team
would like to thank The Golf Club of North
Hampton for sponsoring the Second Annual
YHS Baseball Dugout Club Golf Tournament.
The Yulee High School baseball team would
also like to express sincere gratitude to all of
the businesses in Nassau County that rallied
with donations to make the auction a huge suc-
cess.
The generosity of the local businesses,
the golfers and The Golf Club of North
Hampton made our tournament a great suc-
cess.
We are pleased to see such community
support. Thank you!
Lana Carlyle, Treasurer
Yulee High School Dugout Club

Helping others
On Saturday, Nov. 7, the Barnabas resale
store New to You produced our second annu-
al Christmas sale. Hundreds came and wait-
ed patiently for the store to open and then
cheerfully tolerated long lines at the cash reg-
isters. We had over 30 volunteers give of their
time, unpacking boxes of treasures, adorn-
ing Christmas trees and stocking shelves. To
all our "blue apron" volunteers and our hard-
working staff - a big giant thank-you for the
gift of time you gave to our event. We could not
have done it without you.
Shoppers told us of how pleased they were
with the items they bought. One man told us
he was able to get the same shirt he had seen
in a catalogue for $39. Now he owned the
shirt he wanted and had more money to spend
on his family for Christmas. Another single
mom thanked us for helping out with her lim-
ited budget and how good she felt getting
such wonderful gifts for her family. We even
had a customer come for the second year in
a row from South Carolina!
All the items in this sale were donated by
members of our community and we want to
give you all a resounding "thanks" for sharing
your "no longer needed" items with New to
You. The money collected from the sale of
your donated items goes directly into main-
taining Barnabas programs. Your dollars spent
at New to You might be assigned to the Crisis
Center, which helps with paying past-due
housing and utility bills. Or it might be des-
ignated to support the low-cost Barnabas
Dental Clinic or the free evening Samaritan
Medical Clinic, each of which has hundreds
of visits each year.
This past year has been extremely stress-
ful on our agency resources due to the deep
recession. So to all, thank you for helping us
help others.

Executive Director

Children need a helping hand

A s our health care system is debated in waiting to be adopted. Conversely, children who are adopted -

should be in full agreement, but still one we
too often overlook: the thousands of children
in need of adoption by loving families who are
instead consigned to a struggling foster-care
system.
These are children who have been through
so much already, who have lost their parents
to tragedy, to the streets, or who have been
pulled through the trauma of abuse or aban-
donment by the very person who should love
them the most. Through no possible fault of
their own, these young ones have seen the
hardest side of humanity, and they desperately
need a steady and loving hand to guide them.
As much as we may bicker over the politics
of life and the role of government in of our
social services, on a fundamental level the
hardship of these children deserves nothing
less than our compassion, support, and per-
haps the very opening of our homes. We must
understand this, not as a peripheral issue, but
as a true crisis of child welfare, and a battle-
ground for our future.
In this country, there are 129,000 children


But last year alone, over
28,000 children were left
i without families.
This does not need to be
MA IKNG the case. Improvements to
SENSE the adoption system in our
country have made the
process smoother, faster and
Michael less expensive than it once
Reagan was. Children in foster
homes can be adopted with-
out legal complications. Those who choose to
adopt an infant can be paired with their child
from before birth and even build a relationship
with the birth mother.
Over and over again, in personal stories
and in comprehensive studies, we are shown
the overwhelming benefits of adoption.
Children left in foster care not only struggle
with being bounced from place to place in
shifting relationships, but also face a terrible
struggle when they leave the system and are
left with no family support, no adequate
resources and a lack of practical preparation.


Many of you know that I myself was adopt-
ed as an infant. I can think of no greater bless-
ing than the family I was brought into, of the
chance for a new life from the start. Every
child is a gift from God and every child
deserves a loving family. As individuals and as
a nation, we must make that understanding a
priority moving forward.
I invite you to visit www.arrow.org, the
home of Arrow Child & Family Ministries, an
organization I have been proud to partner with
for many years now. There you can learn more
about the pressing issues of child welfare in
this country, the policies and practices for
which we advocate and the steps your family
can take on behalf of these children, perhaps
even making one of them your own. Together,
we can protect children and benefit families
for generations to come.

President Ronald Reagan, is chairman and

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Blessed view
I have a few questions I'd like to
ask your readers. First, let me tell
you a little about me. I am a 64-year-
old woman with a MBA and go to
work every day, helping my com-
pany do well - and it does. For most
of my life, I attended church every
Sunday. I am still a Christian - or try
to be. I was a registered Republican
from age 21 to age 55.
I find the way we Americans are
behaving depressing. In many cases
we have become downright mean.
We used to be one of the most gen-
erous nations in the world. We are
still generous to a fault with our left-
overs. The problem is, the more we
have the fewer leftovers we seem
to have.
Some of us call ourselves Tea
Partiers, but the original Tea Party
was about "Taxation without
Representation." We voted and
chose our representatives. So I think
we have, not patriots, but a bunch of
sore losers.
Many on the right say that gov-
ernment does nothing well. We have
fire departments, police depart-
ments and schools, including one
of the best university systems in the
world. All could be better, but we
could not provide any of these things
as individuals. We also have, inar-
guably, the best military in the
world.
Do we really believe that all we
do well is teach people to fight?
I have good health care insur-
ance through my company. But
every year, as the price goes up, the
coverage goes down and more
restrictions are added. I have trou-
ble convincing myself I have more
right to good health care than our
janitor, who works for an outside
service and is not covered. Do you
think you deserve more than this
hardworking person? There but for
the grace of God go you and me.
Soon I will have Medicare and my
children won't go broke taking care
of me in my declining years - gov-
ernment-run Medicare.
Which brings me to my next
question: How would Jesus vote?
Remember the scripture,
"Render unto Caesar...." Last time I
looked Washington and Lincoln and
other political figures were on our
money. You cannot take it with you.
Christ taught love, not hate, fear
and judgment. He instructed us to
leave judgment to God. The hate
and fear we were to leave out, peri-
od. This behavior is not American or
Christian and a lot of the time not
even civil. I have friends who do not
believe in the hereafter and yet they
are more tolerant, caring and
Christian than many so-called
Christians. Can our churches start
teaching love, tolerance and shar-
ing rather than judgment and fear?
Our children are watching and learn-
ing by our example.
Just a few thoughts from some-
one who has been blessed.

Again and again
The Nov. 6 headline "City to
review charter - again" brings a
chuckle to many in Fernandina
Beach. Numerous previous articles
could have contained the "again"
phrase. For example, "City to priva-
tize marina - again," or "City to
review downtown density - again."
The most number of against " could
probably go behind "City to develop
waterfront master plan - again,
again, again, again, etc., etc."
Looking into the crystal ball for
future headlines, how about "City
to review noise ordinance - again,"
and the classic would be "City and
county to meet in joint session to
improve working relationships and
services to citizens - again."

Blue Angel event, you realize how
much the locals were able to use
palm trees in their beautification

addition to take all those grass

be well served. How about it?

Driving in
Nassau County
Driving in Nassau County!
What an experience. Everyone is
aware of the logging (and other)
trucks, and that just because the
light turns green, do not go until
one makes sure the trucks stopped.
But there are a few things easier
fixed and involve a bit of driving
courtesy.
First, I took the mandatory driv-
ers' ed in high school and my dad
was always "teaching" me as I
watched him drive.
One thing he impressed on me
was that the left lane is for passing
and for when you are close to turn-
ing left. I am amazed how many
people I see around here that think
it is OKto go slow in the left lane. If
they would just move over they
would not have to deal with cars
having to pass them on the
right. If they would simply let
those cars go by it would allow traf-
fic to flow instead of bottlenecking
when there are two cars going the
same speed in both lanes. I don't
care how fast the other guy is going.
I leave that to the sheriff's office.
After all, they are the ones who
should enforce the law, not you or
me.
I am also surprised that so many
people do not know that Florida law
requires you to turn on your head-
lamps when you turn on your
wipers. I see cars in the pouring rain
with their lights off. When it rains it
gets dark out. People can see you so
much better if you would just turn
them on. Now this does not mean
turn on your flashers! You turn them
on and that bright flashing blinds
the guy behind you like taking
bright lights and shining then on
and off in your eyes. If you think it
is so dangerous driving in the rain,
do us other folks a favor and just
pull over.
Finally, I sure wish those fellas
with those cool-looking fog lights
would turn them off unless it's foggy
out. I'm getting older and the fog
lights are real shiny to penetrate a
fog. They also hurt my eyes on a
dark road. I would not be surprised
to find some person with sensitivity
to light didn't wreck or swerve
because of them. It's bad enough


we have gone to halogens and that
no one ever attempts to make sure
their lamps are properly aimed any-
more. It would be nice to cut down
the light pollution.
Anyhow, that's my take on
things. Hope I didn't offend anyone.
A little courtesy goes a long way
in making our roads a bit nicer to
drive.
Sprague Owings
Yulee

It's all relative
I find it a very sad sign the "Good
ole Boy" system's returning back
from Bosque Bello to haunt this city
once again. To give the hard-earned
money of the people of Fernandina
Beach, almost $10,000 of taxpayer
money, to Clinch Kavanaugh (a
cousin of our Mayor Susan Steger)
- for what? Who can honestly think
that Clinch Kavanaugh is the only
person in the entire world who can
address this matter ("City to pay
$9,250 more for title work," Oct. 30)?
The action taken by Mayor
Steger leaves a sickening whiff of
time in this city when graft ruled.
For those of you who are too young
to know and those who have not
lived in the city limits a long time, I
will school you. A little over 25 or
so years ago, maybe a few more,
the state of Florida with the gover-
nor's help arrested and removed
the Fernandina Beach City
Commissioners for corruption.
Some did jail time.
Susan Steger should have
recused herself from that vote to
enrich her cousin to be paid almost
$10,000 for what we call in baseball
an "instant replay," or in this case an
instant re-pay to Clinch Kavanaugh
for work already done. Am I missing
something? Has the Chicago way
made its way to Fernandina Beach?
We now live in a city that is insane-
ly out of fiscal control.
From my perspective, the man-
ner in which our mayor treated that
fellow who suggested the salaries
of city workers was a hoot ("City
adjusts pay grades up," Oct. 23). I
only wish she had pom-poms,
yelling, "Rah, Rah, Rah Salary-expert
guy!" It was in my opinion a horrible
embarrassment for our city. Just
take a gander at what the salaries
proposed were, and I can assure
you there would be three lines
around the block of City Hall to get
those jobs. Give me a break - over
$26,000 a year to work at the skate-
board park. Huh? Remember that in
real dollar terms for us taxpayers,
with benefits, health, sick time,
when it rains, would add up to
around $37,000 per year. A city out
of control indeed.
Please do not get me wrong, I
am all for the skate park. I just hate


to see someone who goes to school
to be a teacher get paid the same as
the person who works in the skate-
board park.
Thank you, Mayor Steger.

Partypoopers
Re: "Cow dies for Relay for Life,"
Nov. 10.
Call us party poopers, but if cow
pie bingo is the most creative
fundraiser someone can come up
with, they need a new planning com-
mittee. Forcing a cow that was
already stressed out to participate in
this cheap stunt is cruel.
Cows are gentle, sociable ani-
mals that like to spend time togeth-
er in peaceful herds. Mother cows
are extremely loving and protective
of their babies.
Using animals for cheap laughs
is bad enough, but for an animal to
pay with her life in the process is
reprehensible. Let's hope this year's
cow pie bingo is the last.

Suspended belief
After the quick muzzling of con-
ference coaches who had the temer-
ity to question officiating that clear-
ly favored Florida and Alabama (and
of course protected their BCS stand-
ings), if there was any question
about who controls the S.E.C., all
doubts were resolved by the kid-
glove treatment accorded Brandon
Spikes. ("UF fighting through 'stuff'
with eyes on the prize," Nov. 11).
Consider the following:
(1) Spikes jumps on a defense-
less Georgia player and attempts to
inflict serious injury to his eyes and
face. This act was tantamount to
aggravated assault and battery.
(2) Once this act becomes fodder
for the national sports shows, Urban
Meyer comes down hard on Spikes
by suspending him for half of
Florida's next game, which just hap-
pened to be against that S.E.C. pow-
erhouse Vanderbilt.
(3) Once this "punishment" was
announced, the S.E.C. quickly rub-
ber-stamped its approval, effective-
ly sweeping it under the rug.
(4) Does anyone but the most
rabid Gator fan believe the punish-
ment meted out to Spikes fit the
crime? Has anyone ever heard of a
suspension for one half of a game?
If the next game was the S.E.C.
championship, do you think any sus-
pension would have been handed
out so quickly?

Albertie the mistress of ceremony


Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all
ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness;
come before his presence with singing.
The gospel explosion began with an
explosive praise and worship service
with Dea. Charles Green and Dea.
Michael Veal. I really love the Lord,
remember me. Thank you, Lord, for all
you've done for me.
It continued with a young man intro-
ducing his mother. Most young ladies
love to talk about Mother, but when you
see and hear a young man stand and
talk about the goodness of Jesus he
grew up with in his mom, it helps the
explosion to come on. Avery gracious
and spiritual introduction from Bro.
Gregory Albertie about the mistress of
ceremony, his mother, Sis. Thelma
Albertie. She began by asking the Lord,
"How can I forget what you've done for
me? When we've been through the
storm and rain, we can never forget how
he brought us out." An explosive testi-
mony.
By the time the welcome came, God
was already in the house. They all
shouted, "Glory, Hallelujah!" We were in
the Lord's house, the gateway to heav-
en. You see, unity does not begin in
examining others, but in examining self.
It's not in demanding others change, but

We continued to

Fernandina Beach
Church of God, intro-
duced by their pastor,
Dr. J.M. Richo, said
that the Lord will make
a way. Why? Because
trouble doesn't last
always. Even if some-
one does you wrong,
forgive that person
because the Lord for-
gave you.


Sis. Anita took us to Calvary, receiv-
ing a standing ovation from the worship-
pers. Many breakthroughs came as
Darien K. Bolden Jr. praise-danced to
"Encourage Yourself in the Lord," and
what an encouragement it was to see
how the Lord uses this young man, for
God uses the young as well as the not so
young to get his glory. For it is He that
hath made us, and not we ourselves.
Unity Christian Baptist Church of
Jacksonville told us, "Every time I think
about Jesus, I'm in love with him. There
is no love like the love of Jesus." The
Peck Ensemble sang, "Swing low, sweet


chariot. Stop and let me ride." Sis. Gwen
McIntyre and family said, "Jesus, oh,
how I love calling your name."
Then the home church choir
brought up the rear with, "I'm all sold
out. I have nothing to give. Being sold
out, we gave it all to the Lord."
What an explosion it was, full of the
gospel of Christ Jesus and his servants.
Our president, Sis. Semoria Charles,
said, 'Thank you to all of God's chil-
dren."
Rev. Palmer, vice president, invited
the unsaved to come to Jesus. No one
left behind. Then was the benediction,
looking for a greater praise explosion
next time. All honor and praise be to
God, forever and ever.

2007 graduate of Yulee High
School, recently completed
U.S. Navy basic training at
Recruit Training Command,
Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week pro-

ety of training, which includ-
ed classroom study and
practical instruction on naval
customs, first aid, firefighting,
water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety.
An emphasis was also placed
on physical fitness.


The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations," an
exercise that gives recruits
the skills and confidence they
need to succeed in the fleet.
"Battle Stations" is designed
to galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice, dedica-

ance in each recruit through
the practical application of
basic Navy skills and the core
values of honor, courage and
commitment. Its distinctly
"Navy" flavor was designed to
take into account what it
means to be a sailor.

Concrete, footprints and the power of forgiveness


"Get out of there," I yelled, but it
was too late. As I looked across the
damaged area, I couldn't believe
what I saw. Hours of grueling work
spoiled. And to think, it all happened
because of his ignorance. My sharp
tone of voice and angry facial expres-
sion instantly made him flee. The
interesting thing was, I didn't feel
bad about it.
Moose was his name, though at
that moment, a few other titles were
rolling through my head, and he was
a black Labrador retriever. If he had-
n't belonged to the people who had
hired me, I probably would have
chased him a lot further. At any rate,
his paw prints were everywhere.
And wouldn't you know it, it hap-
pened at a time when the concrete


patio I had just
poured was starting
to harden. I was
going to have to
work quickly.
Of all my years
in the construction
trade, before pas-
toring, the few
times I poured con-
PULPIT create proved to be
NOTES some of my most
challenging.
Granted, working
Pastor concrete by your-
Rob Goyette self is not always a
great idea, but it's
doable, especially if you don't have
unexpected guests roaming around.
In either case, the day Moose gal-


loped through my outdoor master-
piece, I was left feeling like a career
change to the Nassau County animal
control department might be a very
rewarding one. Alright, I'm over it
now but it took me a little while.
Somewhere in the process of fill-
ing in and smoothing paw prints, I
found grace to forgive him. I'm not
sure if it was the thought of how the
lime from the concrete had to be
burning his paws, or perhaps the
idea that he really didn't know what
he was doing, but, in either case, I
managed to release him. Though for
a while I kept both eyes open, not
knowing if he in his ignorance might
return, the longer I worked, the less
the threat became, especially as the
concrete got harder.


Now I don't know about you, but
for me this story carries some really
important truths. Like, for instance,
the power of justice and the power of
forgiveness. While it's true I had felt
put out and wronged by what Moose
had done, it's also true that Moose
hadn't got off scot-free. His feet were
no doubt burning from the poor path
he had chosen. That to me is what
justice is about. In the end, we all
reap what we sow.
On the other hand, my decision
to get on with life and to release the
one who had messed things up for
me allowed me to focus on the task
at hand. You see, if I had spent all my
time chasing Moose, I would have
missed my opportunity to finish the
important work I was called to do.


Let's face it, this life is short. To
allow hurts and offenses to distract
us from our primary purpose just
isn't very wise. Like hardening con-
crete, each day of our lives gets us a
little closer to the final condition with
which we will either enjoy or
bemoan eternity. So, let's follow
Jesus' example and forgive. It's the
one sure way to fill in the dents and
smooth out the rough spots of life.
Besides, we've all walked in some
places we shouldn't have and are in
need of the very same forgiveness
from God.
"And forgive us our debts, as we
forgive our debtors." (Matt.6:12)

one more way we seek to
make that welcome real."

Fall is a perfect time to
take stock of the energy
usage in your home and busi-
nesses and make simple
changes that will make an
impact on monthly bills. FPL
has tips for reducing energy
usage and its online interac-
tive house is a great tool for
room-by-room energy-saving
, 1.1.. i . , ii, that translate into
dollars saved. Just visit
www.fpl.com/toolkit.
By following FPL's myth-
busters and Top 10 tips, cus-
tomers can take control over
their monthly energy bills.
For example:
Myth: "When my comput-
er is off, it isn't using electrici-
ty."
Fact: In reality, computers,
TVs, DVD players, DVRs,
stereos and even cell phone
chargers continue to draw
power even when they are not
in use. There are two easy
ways to save energy by pre-
venting these so-called "phan-
tom" loads: 1) unplug elec-
tronics when not in use, or 2)
plug devices into a power strip
that you can turn off.
A word of caution: shutting
off some of these items may
require you to reprogram cer-
tain functions when you turn
them back on so check your
owner's manual to be sure.
While your computer is
still powered up, take FPU's
free Online Home Energy
Survey to find out which appli-
ances in your home are cost-
ing you the most. With the
information you provide, FPL
can give you a personalized,
convenient and expert energy-
saving analysis of your home's
energy use. You'll be able to
input different scenarios and
discover how small changes
can impact energy usage.
FPL's free Online Home
Energy Survey also offers
you:
* Specific ways to save
money on your electric bill
with energy-saving tips for
your home.
* An easy way to find out
what home appliances cost
the most to run and how
much they contribute to your
electric bill.
* The ability to test your
savings by using different
thermostat settings;
* An overall guide for an
energy-efficient home.
* A printable report detail-
ing specific ideas on how to
keep your individual electric

bills down.
FPL's Top 10 tips to save
energy (and money)
1. Clean or replace your air
conditioner's filter every
month to help your unit run
more efficiently and reduce its
energy consumption.
2. Cool your home at 78
degrees or warmer with the
thermostat fan switch on
"auto." For additional savings,
raise your thermostat to 82
degrees or warmer when
you're away from home.
3. Heat your home at 68
degrees or cooler with the
thermostat fan switch on
"auto." To save even more,
lower your thermostat to 65
degrees or cooler at bedtime
or when you're away from
home.
4. Install a programmable
thermostat that you can set to
adjust your home's tempera-
ture automatically so you can
be comfortable when you're
home and saving money when
you're not.
5. Turn off ceiling fans
when you leave a room. A fan
that runs constantly can cost
up to $7 a month depending
on size and age.
6. Avoid pre-rinsing dishes
before putting in dishwasher
to save up to $70 a year.
7. Limit the time you run
your pool pump to no more
than six hours a day in the
summer and no more than
four hours a day in the winter.
8. Adjust the water level on
your washing machine to
match the load size, especially
when using hot water. Always
use a cold rinse.
9. Clean the lint filter in
your dryer before every load
to dry your clothes faster.
10. Use your dryer's auto-
dry sensor, if equipped, to
conserve energy by not over-
drying your clothes.

FIELD TRIP


Thirteen Nassau County
Master Gardeners met recently
at the Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens for a guided tour of
the horticulture areas and
exhibits. Led by Director of
Horticulture and Facilities
Robert Chabot, right, and
Horticulturist Jennifer Best, the
group visited Savannah
Blooms, the Trout River Plaza
and the Asian Gardens, where
many bamboo species can
almost literally be watched as
they grow!
Acknowledged "plant
nerds," the Master Gardeners
asked questions, noted plant
identifications, pondered where
new species might fit into the
county demonstration garden
and their own yards, and
soaked up knowledge to share
with other avid gardeners in
Nassau County.
The Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens serves as a tremen-
dous horticulture center for the
area. Both individual and group
tours are available. Contact the
zoo for information.

SERVING OUR COMMUNITY- 38 YEARS
As we enter the holiday season, it is time to think of oth-
ers who are not as fortunate as some of us. As we know-
there are many right here in our community that will not
have the traditional Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas due
to the economic times and job losses. We at Carpets and
Interiors will take food baskets to families here in our com-
munity for Thanksgiving as we have for over a dozen years.
We will also sponsor families at Christmas so children will
have toys on Christmas morn. If you would like to be a part
of this tradition- we will accept your donation of non perish-
able food, certificates for food and toys. If you wish to
donate, you can bring your donations to our store at 2248
South 8th Street. All donations will go to families in our
community. Pray that you will share your blessings with
others this season. Helping others gives you a whole new
meaning of what the season should mean. We invite you to
visit our showroom where we are featuring many holiday
specials. All woods and laminates are on sale. Both are
products that would enhance any d6cor. The area, animals,
children and other factors would determine which product
you would use. We are also featuring a number of carpets
that can be installed for 1.95 per sq. ft. including pad and
labor. There are products and prices to fit every
budget. Our window
design center
features every
window covering
available from
shutters, wood blinds,
custom draperies
and top treatments
to solar shades.

Pirate harriers qualify boys, girls for regional meet


F^w


ED HARDEE/SPECIAL
Stephanie Strasser is the county and now
district cross country champion.


Strasser clinches

girls district title
BETH JONES
News-Leader

Both the girls and boys cross
country teams at Fernandina Beach
High School have qualified for
Saturday's regional meet.
"This is unprecedented," FBHS
Coach Mark Durr said. "We have
never qualified both boys and girls
teams during the same year. I have
taken boys teams, girls teams, but
never boys and girls together."
Just six girls and eight boys
teams advance from district. Both
the Pirate girls and boys placed
fifth at the district meet Nov. 5.
'There really isn't a question our
district is the most difficult in the
state," Durr said. "Our times would
have won the other district cham-


pionship in our region."
FBHS senior Stephanie Strasser
captured the girls title.
"Of course it helps when
Stephanie wins the whole meet
again, but we also got PRs (per-
sonal records) fromTaylor Rowland
and Cassie Moore, which put us in
a position to move on," Durr said.
'The boys were phenomenal. I
am almost scared to say it, but it
looks like we are peaking at the
right time. These seniors, led by
Jazz (Tomassetti), have been
preparing for this for a couple of
years now and it is so exciting to see
all of their hard work paying off."
Senior Landon Kovalick placed
highest for the boys at 12th with a
time of 16:49.
"He would have moved on as an
individual anyway, but I know this is
more satisfying for him as it is for
Stephanie to see the whole girls
team advance," Durr said. "We have
been at this as a team since the


spring and through the August heat.
We have one more goal to focus on
and that is getting through region-
als together."
The state meet is Nov. 21.
Strasser took first place for the
girls with a time of 18:18.40. Twin
sister Christina Strasser finished
15th with 20:20.10. Taylor Sweet
was 41st with a 23:17.20. Rowland
was 49th with a 24:34 and Moore
was 62nd with a 25:19.50. Lana
Tomassetti was 64th with a 25:40.70
Yulee's Katherine Dennis was
30th with a 21:56.90. Channelle
Brown was 85th with a 32:00.2.
Kathryn Stanley finished 87th with
a 32:57.
Bolles' girls won the 5K meet.
Bishop Kenny finished second,
Episcopal third, Matanzas fourth.
Kovalick was 12th for the boys
with a time of 16:49.50 to lead the
Pirates to a fifth-place finish behind
Bishop Kenny, Nease, Bolles and
Matanzas. Yulee placed 13th and


West Nassau finished 14th.
Adam Buechler was 20th with a
17:22.20; Joey Collins was 21st with
a 17:31.70; JazzTomassetti was 31st
with a 17:54.30; Chris Keffer was
35th with an 18:08.40; Darren
Bunch was 43rd with an 18:33.40;
and Bradley Bunch was 47th with
an 18:45.40.
For Yulee, Charles Griggs was

Pirates preparing


for hoops season


BETH JONES
News-Leader


Nine of the 10 seniors on
the Pirate hoops roster return
from last year's squad, which
went 27-3 and advanced to the
second round of the regional
playoffs.
The Pirates beat Ribault last
winter in the district champi-
onship game and topped Madi-
son County in the regional
quarterfinal before Ribault got
revenge in the semifinals.
"They're not feeling the
pressure," said Matt Schreiber,
boys basketball coach at Fern-
andina Beach High School. "As
a coach, you like to see them
with a little more sense of
urgency, most of the time."
The 2009-10 Pirates will be
unveiled next week when they
travel to Providence for a pre-
season tip-off tournament. The
Pirates take on the hosts at 7:30
p.m. Nov. 20 and play Fleming
Island at 6 p.m. Nov. 21.
The regular season opens
at home Nov. 24 when the
Pirates host Bishop Snyder and
former Pirate hoops coach Lou
Pereira.
Nearly intact, the Pirates
graduated just two seniors last
season - Jake Brogdon and
James Russell.
"We know each other pretty
well," Schreiber said. "I'm look-
ing forward to the season, obvi-
ously with the nucleus we have
returning.
"Part of me just hopes the
team realizes that it's a whole
new season. This particular
team hasn't accomplished any-
thing yet."
Carlos Holcey, last year's
most valuable boys basketball
player in Nassau County, is
among those nine seniors re-
turning along with Zach Roche-
leau, Terin Dallas, Patrick Gar-
vin, Andrew Vrancic, Tai Alford
and Chris Keffer.
"Those guys have made big
contributions, not only to last
year's team, but the year before
that," Schreiber said.
Holcey averaged 15.3 points,
6.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and
3.4 steals a game last season to
steer the Pirates through a suc-
cessful season. Rocheleau was
third on the team in scoring
with a 9.9-point average and led
the Pirates in assists with 3.5 a
game. Alford averaged 8.9


points a game. Garvin was sec-
ond in rebounding with 4.4.
Billy Hunt, Stacey Lynch
and Tahj Kimble, who sat out
two seasons, are also seniors
this season.
'These guys that have been
on the team in the past and are
looking forward to an oppor-
tunity to be impact players this
year," Schreiber said.
There are five juniors on the
varsity squad. Will Rodeffer and
Evan Evans moved up from last
season's junior varsity squad
and three players have trans-
ferred to FBHS. Sean Jowers
left Bishop Kenny and Alex
Bridwell and Andrew Slechta
are recent transplants.
"You love for guys to move
in," Schreiber said. "It never
hurts you for someone to move
in and join your program, espe-
cially the fact that they're jun-
iors and will be around to con-
tribute after this large class of
seniors graduates."
The district has shaken up
this season for the Pirates.
Out of the district lineup are
West Nassau, Trinity Christian,
Bald-win and Bishop Snyder.
Raines is in.
"The district is smaller but
it's a lot more competitive
because Raines joins the dis-
trict," Schreiber said. "Yulee is
improved and Episcopal is im-
proved."
Ribault and Bolles round out
the six-team district.
"You have those two (Ri-
bault and Raines) and every-
body in this district is better
than last year," Schreiber said.
"We returned the top four
seeds and then Raines, who has
always had good basketball
teams and only a few years
removed from state champi-
onships.
"On top of that, we've gone
out of our way to upgrade our
schedule."
The Pirates host St. Francis
out of Gainesville the Friday
after Thanksgiving and play
three games with Providence,
which boasts the third- and six-
ranked seniors in the state. One
signed with Florida, one with
Kentucky.
"It's a challenge," Schreiber
said. "Fun for us, gives us
something to focus on.
"It remains to be seen how
we're going to respond to this
challenge."

Athletes not prevented from playing because ofsickle trait


T wo years ago Steelers'
safety Ryan Clark had a
nice game against the
Denver Broncos in the
cool mountain air of Denver's Mile
High Stadium. But after the game,
he began to develop severe abdomi-
nal pains. He did not recall any
weird or unusual hits during the
game, but knew this was definitely
something out of the ordinary. It
was so bad, in fact, when the team
was preparing to leave, he couldn't
get on the airplane and was taken to
the hospital for evaluation.
Tests showed Clark had devel-
oped a splenic infarction, a condition
in which oxygen supply to the
spleen is interrupted, leading to tis-
sue death. In addition, Clark had suf-
fered damage to his gallbladder.
Both of these conditions were
brought on by his sickle cell disease
and worsened by the thin air of


Colorado. He was
taken to the operat-
ing room, where
his spleen and gall-
bladder were
removed.
Red blood cells
transport oxygen
.. within the blood.
Sickle cell disease
is a genetic disor-
SPORTS der that affects the
shape of the red
MEDICINE blood cell, causing
GREGORY them to form a
nGREGORY curved or sickle
SMITH, M.D. shape instead of
- the normal round-
ed shape. This
affects the performance of the cell
as well as causing stacking of cells,
which can lead to blockage of blood
flow through organs.
Sickle cell trait is a condition in


which there is one gene for the for-
mation of sickle hemoglobin and one
for the formation of normal hemo-
globin.
Sickle cell trait occurs in one out
of every 10 African-Americans.
Usually, people with sickle cell trait
do not have any medical problems.
They can lead normal lives and do
not develop sickle cell disease.
Athletes with sickle trait are not
prevented from any sports participa-
tion, but complications can occur in
conditions of dehydration, extreme
exertion and poor oxygenation.
According to data from the National
Athletic Trainers Association, over
the past seven years, collapse during
exercise due to complications from
sickle cell trait has killed nine ath-
letes.
Devard Darling, is a wide receiv-
er for the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs.
He lost his twin brother, Devaughn,


to complications from sickle cell trait
in 2001.
"We both learned we had sickle
cell trait during our freshman year at
Florida State," Darling said. "But
even knowing the risks at the time,
my brother died on the practice field
before his 19th birthday."
After Devaughn's death, doctors
would not clear Devard to play and
he transferred to Washington State
to finish out his college career.
Fortunately, Ryan Clark did
recover and is back in action; howev-
er, when the Steelers played at
Denver Monday night, Clark did not
suit up. While many players with
sickle cell trait have played in
Denver without a problem, Clark
has an additional underlying genetic
condition that compounds the prob-
lem.
"Ryan is a unique case where it's
the sickle cell trait in combination


with some other pre-existing med-
ical issue that creates it," Tomlin
said.
Despite being given medical
clearance to play, Steelers Coach
Mike Tomlin felt, given the fact this
was not without some risk, Clark
should sit.
"His physical health, his well-
being, of course, is paramount,"
Coach Tomlin said.

Club holds Stars & Stripes Regatta


JOHN BURNS
For the News LEader

The Amelia Island Sailing
Club held the last race of the
2009 season, the Stars & Stripes
Regatta, on Saturday
Mother Nature cooperated
with a cloudless blue sky, warm
temperatures and winds to 15
knots. Perfect for racing.
The starting gun (OK, it was
really a horn) sounded at 10:30
a.m. and the boats fought to be
first across the starting line.
Fighting the three-knot current,
the boats crossed the line
almost in unison and headed
for the first buoy, red 22 in the
St. Marys Inlet.
Since this leg of the race had
the boats racing into the wind,
the skippers devised their own
strategies for tacking to the
mark. In the end, Baby Blooz,
Mast Confusion and Sunday
Mornin' Jazz turned the mark
first, second and third, respec-
tively.
The triangular course con-
sisted of three complete laps
from red buoy 2 just at the start
of Amelia River, east into St.
Marys Inlet, rounding red buoy
22 to port, then into
Cumberland Sound, turning


Boats jockey to be first across the line after the starting
horn.


red buoy 26, then back to red
buoy 2 to begin another lap.
The fourth and final lap was
completed when the boats
crossed between buoys red 26
and green 27 in Cumberland
Sound.
In the end, Baby Blooz fin-
ished in first place, Flamingo
second and Sunday Mornin'
Jazz claimed third place.


The Amelia Island Sailing
Club meets the first Tuesday
of the month at the Kraft
Athletic Club. Guests are
always welcome.
Because of the holidays, the
next scheduled meeting is Feb.
2. In the meantime, if you want

ning in the Nassau River and are an
excellent option when the wind is blow-
ing from the northeast with lots of
cloud cover. Certainly this past week has
found ideal conditions for striped bass fishing.
Fishermen can safely launch their boat in a
small creek and target these
hard-fighting game fish. Look
for the high falling tide to
supply the best striped bass
action while trolling minnow-
type plugs like the silver and
blue back Rebel close to
creek mouths and deep turns
of the creeks and main river.
Casting led head jigs rigged

plastic curly tail also works

Look for the 1-95 bridge,
TERRY located both at the Nassau
LACOSS and St. Marys rivers, to hold
stripers during the first of the
falling tide.
Another sure bet this weekend should con-
tinue to showcase our fall run of speckled sea
trout. Catches of up to 30 trout on a tide have
been commonplace while drifting live shrimp
under a float. Be sure to release your trout
while using long nose pliers or the ARC
DeHooker. The current regulations for sea
trout allow fishermen to keep five trout per
day measuring at least 15 inches with one
trout measuring over 20 inches. Trout season
is closed during the entire month of February.
Red drum continues to highlight the
Nassau and St. Marys inlets when weather
permits fishermen to target these wide-open
waters. Fishing on the bottom with cut baits
and blue crabs continues to lure red drum that
can weigh up to 50 pounds.
Be sure to deflate the air bladder of any fish
with an inflated air bladder with a sterilized
needle before releasing your catch.

Concert celebrates 'Music of a Kingly Nature'


JANE LINDBERG
For the News Leader
In 1727, German composer
George E Handel was chosen to
write the music for the coronation
of George II of England. Doesn't it
seem strange that a composer
born in Germany, educated in Italy
and a British emigrant be selected
to perform this task? It's really
quite simple.
In 1708, King George I was rati-
fied as prince-elector of Hanover.
He was Queen Anne's closest
protestant relative when she died
in 1714, and he ascended to the
English throne upon her death. He
died in 1727 and his son, George
II, became king. The House of
Hanover was German and Handel
was German. It was a match made
in heaven, even though Maurice
Greene, who had recently been
appointed Organist and Composer
to the Royal Chapel, probably
should have been selected to write
the coronation music. I would

WILMA ALLEN
For the News Leader
f you visited downtown
Fernandina lately, you proba-
bly wondered about the huge
restoration project under way
at 604 Ash St.
Soon, you will wonder no
more. Thanks to the Amelia
Island Museum of History and
the building's gracious owner, on
Dec. 4 and 5 you'll be able to tour
what will surely be one of down-
town's most elegant showplaces.
With grand double-decker porch-
es surrounding the entire build-
ing, it is one of five outstanding
homes that will be open to visitors
for the museum's annual holiday

store called "The Christmas

Both homes are owned by

Give thanks with

moderately priced

American wines
ROBERT M. WEINTRAUB
For the News Leader
The most famous Thanksgiving painting is Norman
Rockwell's "Freedom From Want" published by the
Saturday Evening Post in March 1943 as part of a set
that embodied Franklin
Roosevelt's famous "Four
Freedoms" speech. The 1W1INE
painting shows "grandma" V
putting a plattered turkey on r C
a table surrounded by happy P7O N ERS
faces, young and old.
What's missing from the
table, of course, is wine. For whatever reason,
Rockwell felt wine was not appropriate on this particu-
lar Thanksgiving table.
But we are a drinking nation. The rise and fall of
Prohibition proved that. And while wine hasn't
reached the status of string bean casserole or pump-
kin pie, this Thanksgiving most tables, I dare say, will
have at least one type of wine (mine will have two, a
white and a red).
What wine to drink at this most American of all
meals? An American wine, of course. And it should be
a moderately priced wine; Thanksgiving is not an elit-
ist festival.
And there is the rub. Drinkable American wine
does not come cheap. About 20 years ago, the
American wine industry decided to cater to the afflu-
ent market and brush off the customer of limited
means. There is an abundance of low-priced California
wines, but most of them are mediocre at best. The
market for quality, moderately priced wines was left to
the Italians, Australians, New Zealanders, South
Americans and others off the well-beaten path.
Even so, there are some decent wines to be had at
moderate prices. To find what was available, we can-
vassed area wine merchants and came up with some

del, syrah/shiraz or such will
have too much tannin and
strong flavors for the light
meat. Pinot noir is my
American wine of choice for
light meat. One of my favorite
American locales for growing
pinot noir is Sonoma's
Russian River valley and as of
this writing Winn Dixie has
the Kenwood Estate pinot on
sale at $15, a savings of $5.
Another interesting pinot
noir available here at an
attractive price is the
MacMurray Ranch Central
Coast varietal available at
Harris Teeter for $11.
Although MacMurray Ranch
has a more expensive pinot
noir from Russian River, it is
made in the jammy, fruit-for-
ward style that is the current
California fad. The Central
Coast version - from the
Santa Lucia highlands - is a
drier wine in the Oregon or
Burgundy style.
I always have a bottle of
riesling on the Thanksgiving
table; its off-dry, full-bodied
flavor works very well with
turkey and ham. This grape
likes cooler climates so the
best American rieslings come
from our Pacific northwest.
They are not sweet like
German and California ries-
lings. There are two excellent
Columbia River rieslings avail-
able here for under $15:
Chateau Ste. Michelle ($13-14
at Winn Dixie and Harris
Teeter), and Covey Run (cur-
rently on sale at Winn Dixie
for $11).
Another wine that goes


well with turkey or ham is
ros6, which has a hard sell
here, but can be a very fine

wine in its dry form. It is more
full bodied than white wine
and less powerful than red.
Toad Hollow is one of the bet-
ter wineries in Sonoma and
they produce a dry pinot noir
rose they call "Eye of Toad."
We first sampled this wine
during a tour of Sonoma a
couple of years ago and were
delighted to find it on a Harris
Teeter shelf for only $11.
A local trend is to cook
turkey in a deep fat fryer. This
Cajun technique keeps in the
bird's juices and produces a
crispy skin. If you use this
method with Cajun spices,
you will want a stronger wine
and this takes us to zinfandel,
a very American wine
(although like most of us, it
comes from someplace else).
Unfortunately, zin prices
have taken a bullfrog leap in
recent years and the best zins
in our tasting of two years
ago, Sin Zin and Dry Creek,
are now selling over $20.
Frei Brothers Reserve
zinfandel, not as good as the
other two, is currently avail-


able at Harris Teeter for $17
with a $2 coupon on the bot-
tle.
For those whose prefer-
ences run to chardonnay,
there's the Cupcake wine at
Teeter for $9 and next door
Amelia Liquors has put a good
$20 Freemark Abbey chard on
sale at $14.
The local wine club, the
Cellar Dwellers, will hold a
sparkling wine tasting on Dec.
5; I will report the results in
December.

CYAN MAGENTA


FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2009 LEISURE News-Leader


TOUR Continued from 1B
Fernandina for Thanksgiving in 2002 and spot-
ted a 'For Sale' sign on the house at 601 Ash,
the house our father was born in," Davis
recalls. "It was my grandfather's house but
was sold in 1950. When I learned it was for
sale again, I wanted it back."
601 Ash St. was always well cared for, she
says, but needed some updating, a new back
porch to match the one in the front, and to
emphasize the home's historic features, some
serious redecorating. Throughout the interior,
lush walls, window treatments and furnishings
complement the color palate and exquisite
architectural detailing on the outside. "The
inside is kind of ratcheted-up Victorian, with
some whimsical touches," Davis says.
The house quickly became a popular a
gathering place for "packs of family members"
who visit frequently from around the country.
So Davis began looking for a second home to
accommodate her enthusiastic extended fami-
ly. She finally settled on the big run-down
building across the street that she could view
from her front porch, and embarked on yet
another restorative adventure.
These gorgeous homes resonate with fami-
ly history, but it is family artistry that flows
throughout another house on the tour. Lynne
Anderson of 326 S. Seventh St. will open her
delightful 1920-ish cottage for all to admire. It
is graced with lovely hand-made weavings,
stained glass windows and chandeliers, artful


carvings and other creations by her artistic
parents, grandmother and sister. Anderson
herself added arts and crafts wall stenciling
throughout the house, and the high quality
and character of the restoration testify to the
owner's creative bent.
"I've always been partial to cottages," she
says. "I wanted something that needed renova-
tion that I could put my mark on." One major
challenge was constructing a staircase to
access the attic, which would become a new
master suite. A kitchen wall was ultimately
bumped out to make the plan work perfectly.
Another challenge was building a garage and
apartment in the backyard. "My goal was to
respect the architecture of the house, so I'm
very pleased when people are surprised to
learn that it is new construction."
Another very special home on the tour is a
soft yellow beauty with oodles of fancy trim to
set off its broad white porches. Museum
records say this home at 120 N. Sixth St., in
Fernandina's so-called "Silk Stocking District,"
was built in 1876 by Josiah Prescott. Prescott
served as a lieutenant during the Union occu-
pation of Fernandina. He later returned,
bought the lot in 1872 and built his family
home several years later.
Of course, over the years there have been
many additions and changes. Current owners,
Charlotte and Roland Knight, who purchased
the Prescott House six years ago, added an
extraordinary screened entertainment pavil-
ion, pool and pool house in the back. The


Knights had admired the neighborhood's his-
toric ambiance and proximity to downtown for
years. "We feel very fortunate to live here,"
Charlotte Knight admits. "We love the porch-
es, the neighbors and feel like we're part of
history."
The final home on the tour is the hand-
some 401 S. Seventh St. As with other area
homes, contradictions and mysteries surround
it. Historic Property Associates, Inc. of St.
Augustine believes it was built in 1902. But
EB. Cullom of Florence, S.C., is certain his
grandmother lived in the house from 1877-86,
when it was owned by her father, W.J.
Woodward, who may have been vice consulate
of Uruguay. Apparently there were several
international consulates in Fernandina's ship-
ping heyday.
Over the decades, however, shifting for-
tunes and a number of devastating fires took
their toll on the home. "It broke my heart to
see it literally falling to pieces and no one
seemed to care," said Frances Harper, another
Woodward descendent who has pictures of the
house in earlier days. "When I saw the
destruction, I felt sure it would just be razed.
I'm so glad the house has been saved."
Its saviors were Todd Kemp and Brian
Boyer, who rescued the once lovely building in
2008 and began a complete, stunning restora-
tion. The tall, handsome house with multiple
porches and lush landscaping is now in impec-
cable, pristine condition and makes a wonder-
ful highlight to the tour.


"These are all fabulous homes and none
have been open to the public before, at least in
recent years," says Trish Dooley, co-chairman
of the event. "The museum is so grateful to the
owners for making them available for this
major fundraiser."
All of the homes will be decked out for the
holidays and strolling carolers in period dress
will add Victorian flair throughout the neigh-
borhood, adds Anne Kelly, the event's co-
chairman
Hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Dec. 4 and 5.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on the day
of the tour. For a special treat, Barbara and
George Sheffield will be opening up the
beloved Bailey House for an authentic
Victorian tea served by "Museum Madams."
Sharon and Allen Lennon, portraying the
home's original owners, Kate and Effingham
Bailey, for whom the gorgeous home is
named, will greet their guests and tell about
Victorian life in Fernandina. Tea tickets are
$15 each. Tea times are 2, 3 or 4 p.m. each day,
but space is limited so order your tickets early.
Advance tickets for both the tour and tea
can be purchased at the museum, 233 S. Third
St.; the Amelia Island Convention and Visitors
Center, 103 Centre St.; The Plantation Shop in
the Palmetto Walk Shopping Center; At Home
Amelia at 818 Sadler Road and online at

will be available at the museum and at the tour
homes. Proceeds will continue the work on
major renovations.

SINGERS
Continued from 1B
hurt that Handel's music was
considered the finest being
written in Britain at the time.
Handel was also allowed to
choose the texts rather than
asking the Archbishop of
Canterbury to perform this
task. He is quoted as saying,
"I have read my Bible very
well, and shall choose for
myself."
There may have been
some controversy over the
selection of Handel over
Greene and there is evidence
that the two men had dis-
agreements over time. Mostly
though, it was over the prob-
lem of the friendly relation-
ship between Greene and
Bononcini, Handel's archrival
in the opera world. Handel,
who was known for borrow-
ing themes from other com-
posers, was asked why he
borrowed material from
Bononcini. He is said to have
replied, "It's much too good
for him; he did not know what
to do with it."
Charles Burney, credited
with writing the first music
history book, A General
History of Music, made this
comment: "Maurice Greene
had the misfortune to live in
the age and neighborhood of a
musical giant, with whom he
was utterly unable to contend,
but by cabal and alliance with
his enemies. Handel was too
prone to treat inferior artists
with contempt; what provoca-
tion he had received from
Greene, after their first
acquaintance, when our coun-
tryman had a due sense of
great powers, I know not; but
for many years of his life, he
(Handel) never spoke of him
(Greene) without some injuri-
ous epithet."
In the preface to the
anthems, we have this account
from the Norwich Gazette
dated Oct. 7, 1727: "Yesterday
there was a Rehearsal of the
Coronation Anthem in
Westminster-Abbey, set to
Musick by the famous Mr.
Hendall: There being 40
Voices, and about 160 violins,
Trumpets, hautboys, Kettle-
Drums, and Bass's propor-
tionable; besides an Organ,
which was erected behind the
Altar: And both the Musick
and the Performers, were the
Admiration of all the
Audience."
There are four sectional
anthems, each one to be sung
at various points of the coro-


nation. We have changed the
order of the anthems and will
do them as follows: "Let thy
Hand Be ,i i. ii ...i..d '
(Psalm 89: 13-14), "My Heart
is Inditing" (Psalm 45), "The
King Shall Rejoice" (Psalm 21)
and concluding with "Zadok
the Priest" (1st Kings 1). Two
of the anthems conclude with
an "Alleluia" Chorus. At many
turns one can anticipate
Messiah, though it was writ-
ten 14 years later in 1741. "My
Heart is Inditing" is sung by a
solo quartet that includes
Micki Smith, soprano (Friday
night); Emma Bledsoe, sopra-
no (Sunday afternoon);
Ginger Lindberg, alto; Wayne
Howard, tenor; and Bob
Ehrman, bass. "Zadok the
Priest" uses text that goes
back to the coronation of King
Edgar in 973 AD and was
sung during the anointing of
the king. Handel's setting of
the text has been sung at
every coronation since 1727.
When Charles becomes King
of England, we will hear it
again.
The coronation of George
II and Queen Caroline took
place at Westminster Abbey
on Oct. 11, 1727 and one can
be assured that those in atten-
dance were electrified by the
beauty and the pageantry of
the music!
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
composed Coronation Mass,
K317 in the year 1779. It was
his first effort in the services
of Hieronymous Colloredo,
Prince Archbishop of Salzburg
and was composed for an
Easter day service on April 4,
1779. His life was in total dis-
array after spending time in
Paris where he had been total-
ly unsuccessful in obtaining
work. It was during this time
that his mother had become ill
and died and having to return
to Salzburg left him in a state
of depression and frustration.
In order to please his father,
he agreed to take the job with
Colloredo. The two were like
oil and water and the relation-
ship, which was never compli-
mentary, continued on a
downward slide.
Roye Wates of Boston
University states, "Archbishop
Colloredo, an 'Enlightened'
prince of the church, insisted
on strict rules for liturgical
music, the same rules promul-
gated by Emperor Joseph II in
Vienna. Their aim was to
focus attention on the Mass
itself and away from what was
perceived as musical ostenta-
tion. Of course, this infuriated


musicians." The idea also was
that it not last more than 45
minutes. Mozart was indeed
filled with angst at having to
compose a li.l.,l-.:.,i. Mass
with soloists, chorus and
orchestra, a work suitable for
Salzburg's massive cathedral
and written in a style appropri-
ate to the splendor and joy of
Easter Sunday - all in less
than 45 minutes."
Not only did Mozart stay
within the 45 minute limit, he
wrote one that lasted only 30
minutes and used soloists as a
quartet instead of giving them
the long solos that are found
in many of his other masses.
The solo quartet for the per-
formance is Diana Twiggs,
soprano; Deborah Watford,
alto; Matt Gingery, tenor; and
Mac Gravely, bass.
He truly wrote an incredi-
ble Mass that has been
embraced by audiences since
its inception and is one of
Mozart's most popular works.
All the movements are in C
major except the "Agnus Dei,"
which is in F major. The con-
clusion of the work borrows
thematic material from the
"Kyrie," as was done in the
Requiem. Further, the Agnus
Dei is a primarily a soprano
solo and reminiscent of "Dove
Sono" from the Marriage of
Figaro. The work took on the
name "Coronation" because it
was performed for the corona-
tion of Francis I in Prague,
1792 and probably Leopold II,
in 1791, the year of Mozart's
death. The Mass is truly a cel-
ebration in the finest sense of
the word!
The Island Chamber
Singers will present "Music of
a Kingly Nature" on Friday,
Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. and Sunday,
Nov. 22 at 3 p.m. Both per-
formances will be held at the
