Future is bright for



YPort of Fernandi na


RmYIAN mi/inwaL-LEbiAuEK
State Rep. Lake Ray of Duval County talks with Nassau County Ocean,
Highway and Port Authority Commissioner Cari Cahill on Friday.


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The future of the Port of Fernandina was dis-
cussed Friday during the Fernandina Maritime
Exchange's State of the Port 2010 luncheon at Florida
State College at Jacksonville's Betty P Cook Nassau
Center in Yulee.
Although Fernandina Beach's modern seaport
terminal dates back to 1985, Amelia Island's natural
harbor has been handling ships for more than 200
years. Capt. Andy Blomme, captain of the port for
Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville, spoke about the
port's two-century association with the U.S. Coast
Guard and its economic importance.
"As you're all aware, the efficient movement of
commerce is essential for the economic health of a
nation," Blomme said. To illustrate his point, Blomme
spoke of the disastrous economic and humanitarian


impact of the destruction of Port-au-Prince's seaport
in the Haiti earthquake.
'The situation looked to turn from dire to out-
right desperate," he said. Vital goods, he said, could
not reach Haitian citizens until interim repairs were
affected.
Blomme also spoke of the port's importance to
national security. "... I'm proud of Fernandina's impec-
cable safety and security record," he said. "I'm certain
we'll continue the good working relationship the
Coast Guard and the Port of Fernandina have had for
200 years."
State Rep. Lake Ray of Duval County said Florida
needs to invest more in its ports particularly with
traditional revenue streams like tourism crippled by
the stalled economy.
"I don't believe anyone in this room does not

Large jump in



FSCJ enrollment



at Nassau center


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Enrollment is up significantly at
Florida State College at Jacksonville's
Nassau County campus, according to
a school official.
"Last time I looked, it was 27 per-
cent up from last year at this time,"
said FSCJ Nassau Executive Director
Don Hughes. "It's up-from last semes-
ter too, which is very unusual because.
usually our fall semester has -. ,
the most enrollment." ,
FSJC formerly Florida
Community College at
Jacksonville became a four-
year college last year,
although the Nassau campus
does not currently offer jun-
ior- andsenior-level courses at
its Betty P. Cook Center in Hughes
Yulee.
"Right now we accept. stu-
dents for technical certificates or asso-
ciate of arts or associate of science,"
Hughes said. "Our associate of arts
and many of our associate of science
degrees are open enrollment."
Still, Hughes said he feels the
increase is partly due to the broader
curriculum that came with the change.


"Part of it is, I think, we're offering
a better course schedule. ... We have
more options," he said. "We have 16-
week terms and 12-week terms
and 8-week terms. We have hybrid
classes, which are partially online and
partially in person. We have a richer
selection for our students in Nassau
County. We've also been able to
attract more locally based instructors.
That's always a challenge, to get
instructors in areas that you6iave a
need for."
Hughes also said that,
e enrollment may be increasing
not despite the stalled econo-
my, but because of it.
"I think colleges that
offer associate's degrees tend
to increase their student pop-
ulation when the economy is
faltering or struggling," he
said. "There are a lot of rea-
sons for that. One is it's an
option for people who may need
higher education to find a better
career."
FSCJ has 80,000 students at its five
Jacksonville area campuses, seven
centers and online; The Nassau center
has 1,051 students.

All aboard the RAIN Train'


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
Every few weeks or so, homeless
dogs are bundled onto the "RAIN
Train" for a trip to a more hopeful
future.
The brainchild of RAIN's res-
cue/transport coordinator Susan
Perry and its president Lynda Mixson,
the project takes animals from over-
burdened shelters, rescue groups or
residents in Nassau County to agen-
cies elsewhere in Florida and the
Southeast where they have a far bet-
ter chance of adoption.
Since late 2008 the group has
moved more than 600 animals, said
I., many of them to the Humane
'ie. ;;' of Broward County, the pro-
gram's biggest supporter. Others
include the Jacksonville Humane
Society, SPCA of Lakeland, SPCA
Tampa Bay and the Humane Society
of Tampa Bay.
Mixson and Perry got the idea for
the transports when Perry served as
adoption and outreach coordinator for
Nassau County Animal Services. She
discovered that counties with strict
spay/neuter laws often have a short-
age of animals and are eager to help
stressed f:iciilii--s elsewhere.
RAIN, a private 501 (c)3 non-profit,
quickly adopted the program to relieve
the county of any liability moving the

SUBRMITED
Dogs are prepared for transport on a recent RAIN Train, which
takes them to shelters elsewhere in Florida where they stand a bet-
ter chance at adoption.


animals, and the RAIN Train was born.
"I'll never forget my first transport,
showing up with 35 animals," Perry
said of her maiden trip to the Broward
Humane Society "I was kind of nerv-


ous about how we would be received,
but these people greeted us i I tii-
i.r ii.iIli I was overwhelmed at how
excited they were to get a load of ani-
mals. And then putting them in these


phenomenal facilities. You leave feel-
ing pretty good."
Not only do the receiving shelters
provide animals a top-notch tempo-
rary home, said Perry, they cover all
medical costs, too -from spaying/neu-
tering, microchips and vaccinations
to treating serious health issues such
as heartworm.
They also provide an adoption test
by national standards for the animal,
individual adoption counseling, home
visits when required, classes, post-
adoption consultations and education,
she said.
"Their paying for all of that and
taking care of the animals is a huge
cost savings to Nassau County," said
Perry. "And where these animals go,
they get adopted in 24 to 48 hours."
That's not to say the RAIN Train is
cheap. Each transport costs about
$200-300 for the van rental and gas.
"Tim and his staff at Enterprise
Rentals are always so accommodat-
ing and flexible with our ever-chang-
ing schedules," said Perry, and vol-
unteers chip in by driving or fostering
animals for a day or two prior to trans-
port.
But more funds and hands-on help
are always needed, said Perry. It's not
an onerous commitment, she added.
"It's not the never-ending foster situ-

Calling all

photographers
The Amelia Island Museum of History
heeds the help of local photographers for
an exhibit
The museum's 2010 edition of
Fernandina through Photography will
showcase area residents through the lens
of a camera. Throughout our history, res-
idents have made a living with an honest
day's work. Whether you're a shrimper, a
fisherman or a mill-worker, Fernandina
has always been a blue-collar town with
hard working citizens.
The museum hopes to capture this
spirit of industriousness, and while
Fernandina residents might work hard,
they play even harder! The museum also
hopes to capture residents enjoying them-
selves. For centuries, people have hiked,
biked, sailed, surfed and generally enjoyed
themselves on area beaches, salt marshes
and in the endless wilderness.
The museum will combine submitted
photographs with archival photos of
Fernandina's past and present residents
working and playing.
For full rules, information, or to see
some of the archival photographs the
museum plans to use, visit wwwaamelia-

"We've been through these
cycles," he added. "It's been
boom-bust cycles, and we've
never really stabilized that. In
terms of the stability of our
economy, what has been lack-
ing?"
The answer, Ray maintains,
is an emphasis on Florida's
ports as economic engines.
"There are approximately
550,000 people in the state of
Florida who are employed,
either directly or indirectly, in
the service of our ports," he
said. "Not only is it an untold
story, it's an untapped oppor-
tunity. Our ports are under-
serving the people of Florida
by 50 percent ... We're getting
our goods from California,
from other states.
"We have 14 deep-water-
ports in the state of Florida.
Not only do we have the oppor-
tunity to capture that 50 per-
cent back, we have the oppor-
tunity to become an exporter."
Ray said Florida is finally
starting to recognize the value
of its ports.

the receiving shelters require


ports," he said. "This year, as it
stands right now, we've been
able to move that number up to
$30 million."
However, he said, more
needs to be done. In particular,
he maintains that state regula-
tory burdens should be eased.
"For a port to come online
right now, it takes on the order
of four to five years," he said.
"... I'm not suggesting we throw
the baby out with the bathwa-
ter, but I am suggesting there
are ways we can improve that."
Ray said Florida has the
opportunity to become a
Western version of Singapore -
a country whose economy is
still doing well despite the glob-
al financial crisis, thanks in
large part to its active seaports.
In particular, he said Florida
ports would have to be pre-
pared to handle larger ships
after an expansion of the
Panama Canal is completed in
2015. In Fernandina, that
would involve deepening the
port's 36-foot channel, but Ray
said the increased trade would
be a vital component of the
Florida economy.
"Ifwe don't capture that, we
will miss our opportunity to
become the Singapore of the
West," hesaid. "... I need your
help. Write senators. Write any-
body you know in the legisla-
tive process, because this.is

The taxman cometh


If it feels like your monthly
electric and food and insurance
bills are rising like a helium bal-
loon on a windy day, stay tuned.
The taxman is likely to come
knocking next. And this is hard-
ly a friendly visit or a knock of
opportunity for many of us.
With a ballooning federal
debt and a free-spending gov-
ernment, there is a likelihood of
a plethora of tax increases -
on everything from "sin" prod-
ucts to capital gains to health
care. And let's not forget your
income.
To compound matters, state
and local governments are
essentially faced with a dilemma
or either downsizing or raising
property tax rates. We've all
seen this movie before, and the
ending is not usually a happy
one.
Meanwhile, the federal tax
picture is becoming somewhat
clearer. Higher taxes are wide-
lyviewed as the answer to rising
deficits and rampant spending.
Such elevated taxes could have
a headwind effect on any eco-
nomic recovery, however.
Congress and the Obama
administration are batting
around a number of tax-increase
strategies. These include raising
the income tax rates on higher
wage earners; allowing many
of the previous administration's

Security ben-

the exemption on estate taxes
could return to lower levels not
seen since the early 1990s (to $1
million per person).
There is some immediate
tax relief, however. A variety of
tax incentives or breaks were
introduced for 2009, especially
for those in the lower or middle
class.
There are tax credits for buy-
ing a home or for making ener-
gy-saving improvements on an
existing home, as well as a
deduction for sales taxes paid
on a new car. In addition, there
are tax credits for lower wage
earners and for college tuitions.
Either way, the tax landscape
has changed dramatically

Report says federal loan



better than jobless tax


TALLAHASSEE Borrow-
ing short-term money from the
federal government, rather
than raising taxes on Florida's
businesses, will spur creation
of thousands of new Florida
jobs, greater economic activity
and more money in the pock-
ets of taxpaying citizens and
businesses.
That's the conclusion of a
new research report by Florida
TaxWatch that analyzes the
choices facing the Florida
Legislature this session in deal-
ing with a shortfall in the state
unemployment compensation
trust fund, which is used to
pay benefits to unemployed
Floridians. -.
The report, "Borrowing
Short-Term Federal Money to
Pay Unemployment Benefits
Will Help Boost Florida's
Economy and Generate Jobs,"
analyzes the choices of raising
unemployment, insurance
taxes on Florida's employers
versus seeking additional fed-
Seral loans to replenish the
.fund.
"Either the state wAlltax its
employers and employees a
whopping additional $2.2 bil-
lion during this severe reces-
sion or request it from the fed-
eral government through
short-term loans," said


I A PBuvC SfV AA,,wa CMa,

AL l*^j


Dominic M. Calabro, president
and CEO 6f the non-partisan,
non-profit research institute
and government watchdog.
"Clearly, such a dramatic 12-
fold tax hike would not only
worsen our jobless rate, but
also dramatically impair our
state's economic recovery."
Due to the record level of
unemployment in Florida, the
state unemployment compen-
sation trust fund has been pay-
ing out more for unemploy-
ment benefits than what it has
been collecting from employ-
ers. The fund became depleted
last August and since then the
state has received more than
$1.2 billion in federal advances
to cover the benefits.
Anticipating this, the 2009
legislature adjusted employer
contributions and now coupled
with the high unemployment
rate, employers are facing up
to a 12-fold increase in their
unemployment taxes. The
Legislature is now consider-
ing suspending the 2009
changes for two years and
allowing the state instead to
utilize more federal loans for
2010-12 to fund unemployment
benefits.
The loan would, be paid
back gradually beginning in
2012 both through direct pay-
ments by the state and an
increase in federal unemploy-
ment taxes paid by employers.
The Florida TaxWatch
report, using econometric


modeling, shows that seeking
more short-term federal loans
will create more than 14,000
jobs in,Florida in each of the
next two years, an increase of
more than $1 billion in gross
state product in each of the
next two years, as well as a net
increase in Floridians' personal
income. Even after paying
back the loans with interest in
later years, the report shows a
net increase overall in jobs,
economic activity and person-
al income.
The report shows that fund-
ing the unemployment benefits
with additional federal loans
will be better for two reasons.
First, during the time of cur-
rent severe recession, this
money will create more jobs
and provide relief to employ-
ers. Second, the net employ-
ment, GSP and personal
income impacts of the addi-
tional loan for the entire peri-
od will be positive even if the
state ends up'paying the due
interest.
Therefore, the report sup-
ports the proposed legislation
which will give the state busi-
ness community some breath-
ing room, Florida workers a
greater chance for employ-
ment, and allow time for the
long-term recovery of the job
market.

VIEWPOINT/MATT SHIRK/PUBLIC DEFENDER



Public Defender vows


Circuit, including Clay, Duval and
Nassau counties, as Public Defender
for one full year, I would like to take
this opportunity to share with you many of the
accomplishments we achieved in 2009. It is my
philosophy that the mission of the Public
Defender is to provide superior public service.
This is done by maintaining an efficient admin-
istration to protect taxpayers, delivering effec-
tive representation to protect clients and
engaging in the community to protect and
improve our quality of life.
We have built an efficient administration,
keeping taxpayers in mind; we launched a
Strategic Planning and Continuous
Improvement (SPACI) program to promote
growth within the organization, assigned a per-
manent J 1 attorney for screening assistant
public defender appointments and application
fees, developed the Resource Recovery
Program and initialized a partnership with
other stakeholders, streamlined deposition
notification and cancellation procedures to
conserve costs, started a program of electronic
subpoena notification to JSO to reduce bur-
dens associated with private service, formed a -
new partnership with private industry for
video a conferencing system to reduce interof-
fice travel and attorney down time, began the
shift to a paperless office through implementa-
tion of modernized wireless Internet apparatus
and enhanced scanning systems, developed a
public information office to ensure transparen-


cy in this governmental
agency and launched an
independent website for the
office featuring first of its
kind case tracking system to
Reduce the burden on
intake.
Also, we continue to
improve and deliver effec-
Shirk" tive representation for our
clients as required by the
Constitution. Notable steps
we took in 2009: reorganized attorney divi-
sions to better fit client representation in the
courtroom and maximize staffing resources,
tried a substantially larger number of cases
than previous year, installed electronic legal
library system to conserve costs associated
with keeping law books updated, created an
electronic record repository for capital legal
cases, appointed a mitigation specialist to con-
sult on homicide cases and provide mitigation
training to necessary staff, expanded attor-
ney/client video conferencing system through
partnership with the city of Jacksonville and
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, enhanced
Investigations Unit through use of additional
technology and streamlined techniques which
increased case analysis and availability to attor-
neys, elevated background experience base for
investigative personnel and implemented a
mentoring program for at-risk youth.
Education about the Public Defender's role
in the criminal justice system and outreach to


leadership

people who we can help indicates my commit-
ment to prioritize this office's engagement in
the community, which protects and improves
our quality of life. In 2009 we were very active
in this regard; we executed a successful drive
for donations of school supplies for local home-
less children, completed the Florida State
Employees Charitable Campaign; raised
$3,500 for charities, incorporated Project
SEARCH to offer employment opportunities
for developmentally disabled clients of Hope
Haven, provided quarterly meals to homeless,
began aggressive outreach to local schools/
neighborhood associations for public educa-
tion, initiated advocacy effort to Legislature to
realign general revenue funding, enhanced pro
bono program to include monthly legal service
night at Sulzbacher Center and established a
volunteer program for students with career
aspirations in criminal justice.
I consider it a distinct privilege to represent
'Florida's Fourth Circuit as Public Defender.
The success we have had over the course of
my first year in office is notable and I do credit
those committed public servants on my staff
for their dedication and hard work. It is my
goal to continue providing this brand of leader-
ship; efficient administration, effective repre-
sentation and engagement in our fine commu-
nity
Matt Shirk was elected Public Defender
ofthe Fourth Judicial Circuit in November
2008 and took office in January 2009. Visit

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Thankful
Our deepest heartfelt appreciation
to the fine citizens of our community
for their generosity and assistance dur-
ing our time of distress over the out-
rageous repayment of a requested util-
ity deposit imposed by Florida Public
Utilities ("FPU customers for 56 years
must pay more," Feb. 10).
The community outpouring was
wonderful! It goes without saying that
living in a small town has its advan-
tages. I felt that this issue deserved
attention in our community to hope-
fully bring public awareness to this so
that this practice can be eradicated.
Thankfully my bill was paid by our
helpful and caring community friends
and ElderSource. Unfortunately the
initial problem plaguing others in our
community has not been solved. There
are many others in our community that
need the help even more than we do.
Seniors, neighbors, people on fixed
incomes, single parents, etc. Repay-
ment of a utility deposit made years
agis wiong! In these trying financial -'
times very few in our community have
the financial means in order to make
this enormous deposit payment in addi-
tion to their regular monthly payment.
It is unfair to hard-working citizens!
It was not our intent to have our
bill paid by others. A second deposit 56
years later is unfair and wrong! We
wanted the community and local offi-
cials "the powers that be" to be
aware so that hopefully as a community
this issue can be corrected for all.
God bless America and my loving
community. Thank you for reaching
out to help others. Very special thanks
to the Council on Aging, ElderSource
and those special persons who stepped
in to assist my husband Chester and
myself.
I hope that our community leaders'
will not drop this issue and will keep it
in the forefront of city agendas. For
those of you who would like to con-
tribute to help seniors with energy cri-
sis issues please contact ElderSource
at (904) 391-6615 (Helen Ridley) to
donate to the Energy Crisis Fund.

Missing the point?
As I read "Do Not Be Afraid" and
"One People" (Feb. 10) I realized the
need for all Americans, including mod-
erate Muslims who advocate peace, to
better educate themselves regarding
the subject of Islam in America. While
there are many Muslims who value
freedom and love living in the United
States, we must realize that there are
greater forces at work whose agenda
is to revise the history of America,


marginalize our Judeo-Christian her-
itage, indoctrinate our children,
Islamicize our culture and ultimately to
enforce worldwide Shariah law.
According to Muslim Mafia, Islamic
organizations such as the Muslim
Brotherhood, Council on American
Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic
Society of North America (ISNA) all
-have connections to Hamas and are at
work launching a stealthy, culturaljihad
on the United States! 'All the while, the
general public is missing the point! We
are being distracted by the question of
whether moderate Muslims and Chris-
tians can live in peace and we are being
lulled into a sense of acceptance and
complacency concerning the subject.
While we, as Christians, are
impelled to love one another, we would
not knowingly invite thieves into our
houses. The above-mentioned organi-
zations are robbing America (our col-
lective "house") of our Judeo-Christian-
based heritage/culture and, ultimately,
,our freedom! It is time to wake up and
take action, not against individual
ipeace-loving Miuslirm.. btuf against
these nefarious organizations!
The book Muslim Mafia is an excel-
lent expos-of the depth to which such
organizations are infiltrating every
aspect of our society. One of its authors,
P David Gaubatz, served 12 years as a
special agent with the U.S. Air Force
Special Investigations, where he held
our country's highest clearances. He
worked counterintelligence and coun-
terterrorism in several Mideast coun-
tries. Another fine.source for educating
oneself to the threat of Islam is Brigitte
Gabriel's They Must Be Stopped. Brigitte
grew up in Lebanon and experienced
firsthand the evils and brutality of rad-
ical Islam. She has founded "ACT! for
America," an organization dedicated
to educating Americans about this very
real threat operating in the United
States today.
The video "Homegrown Jihad" by
the Christian Action Network exposes
over 35 Muslim terrorist training
camps right here in our country! These
training camps are known as Muslims
of America and are run by Sheikh
Mubarak Gilani, a radical Pakistani
cleric. One must ask himself why these
groups are here, what is their agenda
and is the U.S. military prepared to
protect Americans if and when these
camps erupt into violence?
How will devout Muslims such as
Arif Arikhan, who is setting policy at
the Department of Homeland Security,
react to such a situation? Arikhan has
been involved in derailing the LAPD
Muslim Mapping Plan's investigation
into mosques and Muslim communi-
ties suspected of harboring terrorists
(Los Angeles Times, Nov. 15, 2007).
Other videos which may be Googled


are "What Islam is Not" and "The
Project," which exposes the Muslim
Brotherhood's nefarious works in the
United States, and also "Obsession,
Radical Islam's War Against the West,"
www.radicalislam.org.
Why is CAIR influencing our school
textbook publishers and working to
trivialize our Judeo-Christian heritage,
our national heroes and alter our his-
tory? The Americans, Fernandina
Beach High, School's own American
history book, has been cited as one of
the history books affected by such tac-
tics. Two other world history books
used in the Callahan/Hilliard schools,
"have also been cited by "History text-
books promoting Islam," Bob Unruh
World Net Daily. "Look who's teaching
Johnny about Islam" by Paul Sperry
claims that the Council on Islamic
Education is using our public schools
to promote Islam. Why is it acceptable,
to teach about Islam, yet deny a simple
prayer or the saying of grace before a
meal in our public schools? Parents, do
you know what your children are being
taught in their schools?
The authors of the above mentioned
opinions in Voice of the People asked
for references, and I believe the books


and videos mentioned above will speak
to all of their questions and concerns.
Other websites to investigate are Jihad
Watch, Creeping Shariah and Stop
Shariah Now. We all have a lotto learn
about this threat to our safety and free-
dom. We; as Americans of many reli-
gious persuasions (including peace-
loving Muslims), must "Not Be Afraid"
and come together as "One People" to
stand up to this threat of radical Islam
operating in our midst if we want to
save our children's future, our liberty
and our beautiful country. Let's get
busy before it is too late!

I rarely write letters to the editor
and I rarely get involved in local poli-
tics. However, I must write to express
kudos to State Rep. Janet Adkins and
the unnamed Nassau County motorists
for getting it right. As reported Feb. 24
in the News-Leader, regarding the state
of A 1A/SR 200, Adkins is right. AlA is
a mess.
Several times per week, I drive from
my Amelia Island home to my down-


town Jacksonville office or to Jack-
sonville International Airport. The road
conditions are hazardous and the road
debris is flying over and under our
cars.
Windshield repair service business
is up. One of the Jacksonville wind-
shield repair service companies told
me they service about 12 vehicles daily
in Fernandina Beach all thanks to
A1A road conditions.
I'd suggest we start the repaving
process sooner than later. I'm not sure
how helpful these temporary repairs
will be for our community.'
While I'm writing, let me just add
that I'm embarrassed at the blighted
first impression we give our tourists
when they are exiting 1-95 and heading
to Amelia Island.
The intersection of 1-95 and A1A/SR
200 is not the right impression for a
"resort destination." When my clients
visit from out of town, they share this
exact evaluation. Our local tourist
development council and its members
should adopt that intersection and
immediately revitalize it for the eco-
nomic benefit of all.

Baby, it's cold inside (welcome to Florida)


in 2006 for several reasons, not the
least of which was to escape the
cold New England winters.
Ironically, since moving to Florida I've had
to acclimate myself even more to the cold.
That is because we are living in an unheated
house.
When I tell people my house is unheated,
they often don't understand. "You mean you
lost your heat?" they say. "I'm sure it will be
fixed soon."
Or, "But you have a fireplace, right?" (No.)
Or, "But isn't your house insulated?" (No.)
Or, "You better stop using those space
heaters, they could be dangerous." (Not
bloody likely.)
When we bought our adorable 1930's
house close to Central Park, we just assumed
it had a heating system because a couple of
the front rooms had electric radiators. Having
lived in the North most of my life, I had never
even heard of an unheated house.
It wasn't until our first winter living in it, in
2007, that the ugly truth came out: there Was
no built-in source of heat.
It was during the first cold snap of 2007


when we woke up one morn-
ing, our breath visible in
steamy puffs, and realized we
would have to find some
heat, fast.
We bought some cheap
space heaters but found out
soon enough that the electri-
cal system couldn't handle
more than one going at the
NEWS- same time. We would have
ROOM been panic-stricken, but we
VIEWS were too cold.
The previous tenants had
left a kerosene heater, so my
Angela husband went out to buy
some kerosene. AMother sur-
Daughtry prise! Kerosene was not avail-
able anywhere. I guess all those other people
in unheated houses had wisely stocked up for
the winter.
Luckily, that winter was a relatively mild
one, and we eventually had the electrical sys-
tem modified so now the circuits aren't over-
loaded by two or three space heaters.
Last winter, like this winter, was a cold one,
and I developed a system to stay (relatively)


warm when I got up in the morning for work.
First, I would turn on the clothes dryer.
Then, I would turn on the oven as high as it
could go, and open the oven door. Then I
would turn on all the space heaters and light
the propane heater (a great device that throws
heat like a little furnace). Showers (optional in
the cold) would have been taken the night
before when the house was relatively warm.
Then, I would put whatever clothes I was
going to wear into the dryer for about 30 min-
utes.
For me, the three worst things about living
in a cold house are: 1. Getting out of bed. 2.
Taking a shower. 3. Putting on cold clothes.
Unfortunately, I could never escape No. 1,
especially on workdays. The other two I was
able to rectify somewhat.
Later on, we looked into getting the house
rewired and ducted for a heating/cooling sys-
tem, but the one estimate we got was for -
$10,000. The house also needed about the
same amount of money for what real estate
agents generously call "TLC." We took out a
line of credit, and were all set to make some
renovations, when my husband lost his job.
That meant no heating system any time


soon, and we would have to live indefinitely
with the pockmarked vinyl floors, cracked tile
work and crooked, falling-down kitchen cabi-
nets. OK, fine. Whatever.
This winter was even colder than last year,
and it lasted longer. But strangely, I've learned
the cold hardly bothers me now. Somehow, my
formerly sensitive nervous system has adjust-
ed itself.
We learned that the best space heaters are
the heavy oil-filled ones. They don't take the
place of a built-in furnace, but if you turn on
one in the bedroom an hour before you go in,
it's almost toasty.
I've also learned from this experience that
I'm tougher than I thought, and that even
when things look terrible, even when I'm
broke and cold and far away from family, I can
still have moments of joy, like when the sun
breaks through the clouds, or I feel an ocean
breeze, or when one of my grown sons calls
me on the phone with that longed-for phrase:
"Hey, Mum. What's up?"
I've learned that I can be cool even when
it's cold, and that's the coolest thing of all.

The tragedy at Sea World
Orlando last week, where an
experienced trainer was killed
by an orca she had worked with
for years, has unsettled many
local residents. And those who
know Bucko and I and oiur
marine mammal history have
been seeking us out to ask
questions.
Let's set the record straight.
Bucko and I worked at Miami
Seaquarium in the 1970s and
then spent three more decades
at Marine World in the San
Francisco Bay area. Bucko was
a marine mammal trainer, and
much of this time worked with
the killer whales. He knew all
the ins and outs and personali-
ty traits of Hugo and Lolita,
Nepo and Yaka, Kianu and
Vigga. For years these individ-
uals shaped his life.
Working with killer whales
is by no means an ordinary job.
A whale trainer's workday is
spent in close connection with
animals that dwarf them in size,
and sometimes seem to dwarf
them in strategic thinking
capacity. "It's like playing chess
all day," Bucko would some-
times report after a particular-
ly stressful day poolside.
The seemingly simple tasks
of getting a whale to enter or
leave a particular pen, or to "sta-
tion" in front of the stage to
receive a meal, sometimes
became a monumental effort.
Fish meals and rewards are
part of the program, but if the
orca refuses to eat, then what?
There is no way to force a
10,000-pound intelligent mam-
mal that lives in the water to
do anything. Cooperation, trust
and respect is the only route
that works, and even then, not


always.
Long ago,
at Miami Sea-
quarium, the
senior killer
whale trainer,
let's call him
Jerk, was a
dominant,
angry, spite-
WILD ful person
WAYS and got in
headstrong
S battles with
'Pat adult orca
Foster-Turley male Hugo.
When Hugo
refused to perform a particu-,
lar behavior to the level deman-
ded of him, Jerk slammed his
fish buckets, slapped his target
poles in the water, threw the
fish rewards away out of the
whale's reach and otherwise
acted in a fury. Well, Hugo
could take only so much of this
disrespect Show after show the
negative interactions escalated,
and we staff members started
attending -the whale shows to
see what would happen next.
One day Hugo turned, the
tide. When Jerk was riding on
his back during a show, Hugo
quietly sunk underwater, and
Jerk was left treading water at
the surface. Every time Jerk
tried to swim to the pool's edge
to escape, Hugo intervened, by
swimming between him and
the edge. Nothing the other
trainers could do to distract
Hugo worked. Hugo was out
to teach Jerk a lesson. At one
point Jerk managed to get to
the plexiglass "splash guard"
on the pool edge and climbed
up. Hugo calmly rose out of the
water, grabbed Jerk by the
bathing suit and dragged him

Cabell Insurance has over 15 years
. C experience servicing & ',. i


back in. Eventually Hugo let
Jerk out of the pool, unscathed,
but a lesson was learned.
In contrast, Bucko and his
orcas displayed mutual respect
for one another. If the orcas
didn't feel like working hard
any particular day, that was
their choice and Bucko respect-
ed it But usually, showing their
own respect for Bucko, they
worked especially hard for him.
For him, they would jump their
highest, swim their fastest,
much to the chagrin of new
trainers who couldn't ever get
the, same results. One of his
orcas, Yaka, seemed fond of
Bucko, and by association acted
jealous of me, Bucko's wife,
who would often show up at the
end of the day to drag Bucko
home. Whenever I appeared
near the tank, or even at the
underwater windows, Yaka
would glare at me, her eyes
would get large and red and
she would yank her head back
and forth in a threatening pos-
ture. I never got close to Yaka.
Whale trainers then, and
presumably now, spent a lot of
time thinking of ways to keep
their charges happy and con-
tent in the admittedly close
quarters they are forced to
inhabit. For most captive
whales, the time spent work-
ing with their trainers is fun
time, a time to learn something
.new and to try to understand
what the trainer wants them to
do. In between working ses-
sions, every effort is made to
give the animals different toys
to play with blocks of ice,
buoys, other things the whales
'can't eat or destroy and dif-
ferent scenarios to think about
Increasingly, killer whales, like
mature breeding male Tilikum
in Orlando, are kept in social
groups, resembling those of
wild orca pods, with breeding
options and offspring to interact
with, providing even more stim-
ulation.
But every individual killer
whale is as different as you and
I, with unique relationships
with different trainers, good
days and bad days, and lots on
their mind. What happened at
Sea World last week? There's
no telling. But anyone who
"plays chess" with killer whales
all day knows the potential con-
sequences. It's just very sad to
see it happen.

Feb. 22 for a
suspended
license found
himself in
more trouble
when he
reportedly
told a sher-
Brown iffs deputy to
Retrieve pre-
scription pills
from his car.
Benjamin Lejay Brown, 33,
of 85422 Theresa Road was
arrested for trafficking in oxy-
codone and possession with
intent to sell, manufacture or
deliver opium or a derivative
after a deputy allegedly found
pill containers and prescription
bottles with various pills, a note-
book with pill amounts, prices,
upcoming and past doctor's
appointments and $800 cash,
according to his arrest report.
Brown was interviewed by a
narcotics detective and report-
edly said he carries the pills in
small containers so he doesn't
have to carry the whole bottle.
He signed a written statement
that he had prescription paper-
work for all the pills found in
his possession, the report stat-
ed.
According to the report,
Brown told authorities he sees
only one doctor, but detectives
allegedly found a receipt indi-
cating another doctor had pre-
scribed him pills. Brown said
the ledger was to keep track of
how many pills he was taking,
as he was trying to restrict
intake, the report stated.
Investigators alleged that
Brown's notebook was for keep-
ing track of prices he was selling
the pills for and how much prof-
it he was making, the report
stated.
Two upcoming appoint-
ments with doctors were listed


for March 19, along with the
types of prescriptions Brown
was getting from them, the
report stated.
According to the report,
Brown had four grams of oxy-
codone, hydrocodone and
Xanax without prescriptions
and $800 in twenties and
hundreds wrapped with a rub-
ber band, the report stated. He
told authorities he has been
unemployed since April 2009
and does not receive unem-
ployment benefits or other gov-
ernment subsidies, the report
stated.
Brown is being held in lieu of
$81,508 bond at the Nassau
County Jail.

Hatefosters ignorance in some sportsfans


J realize not everyone is enamored
with former University of Florida
QB Timn Tebow. There are those
who are downright giddy that many
experts are 1p1i' ili ii i the kid to be a
monumental failure as a quarterback in
the NFL. In some small way, I under-
stand those sentiments. Afterall, it could-
n't have been pleasurable to be a fan of
any given team on the opposing sidelines
as Tebow meticulously carved out
arguably the most impressive career in
college football history. I get that.
What I don't get are statements like
the one that popped up in my inbox last
week: "(Tebow) is like Vick. Can only
run and barely pass."
Sighhhh. Here go the stats ... again.
995 attempts
661 completions (66 percent)
: I.I:-iIL touchdowns
16 interceptions
170.8 career passer rating, tops in the
NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (for-
merly Division I-A)
It's OK to expect and even hope for
Tebow to not succeed. But to throw
around statements like, "Can only run
and barely pass" about the most accurate
passer in major i. -11. L.- football history is
ignorant. Can we at least let the kid
throw a pass in the NFL?.:.
Tebow's successor in Gainesville,
John Brantley, has more to think about
than replacing a legend next season. The
redshirt Junior i, ..-il, learned his
father, John Brantley III, has prostate
cancer that will require surgery later this


sL


C


month. The prognosis
is positive and Brantley
has insisted he is
focused on playing
Quarterback for the
Gators. But you could-
n't. blame the kid if his
mind wanders from the
huddle until his dad
pulls through this
ordeal ...
PORTS Florida's spring
I. i..- kicks off on
TALH March 17 and one has
to expect all eyes to be
JoHIN L on Brantley and the
RAWIRRD Gator receivers. Many
expect there will be a
drop-off in offensive


production, however, the opposite could
happen.
It wasn't all that long ago that head
coach Urban Meyer tweaked his spread
option offense to suit the talents of Chris
Leak; who led Florida to the 2006 BCS
Championship. The difference is the
Gators come into 2010 with an experi-
enced stable of running backs in junior
Jeff Demps, senior Emmanuel Moody
and redshirt junior Chi-is Rainey, who
will reportedly play the hybrid running
back/wide receiver position previously
manned by Percy IHarvin. Combine
those guys with Brantley's expected
passing acumen and the Florida offense
could put up huge numbers next season
Over in Tallahassee, word has it that


new Florida State head coach Jimbo
Fisher is taking an approach similar to
the one taken by Alabama's Nick Saban
in 2009, when the Crimson Tide basically
had all eyes on beating Meyer and the
Gators at the end of the season. Not a
bad approach if it works out the same
way. But something tells me. the natives
will be restless in Tallahassee if the
Seminoles lose a few conference games
in September and October because they
were busy preparing for a game that
doesn't take place until the end of
November ...
ESPN college basketball analyst Joe
Lunardi, in his latest "bracketology"
breakdown, has Florida State as an eight
seed and Florida as a 10 seed in the
upcoming NCAA Men's Basketball
Tournament. If Lunardi is correct in his
prediction, the Seminoles would take on
UTEP in Buffalo, N.Y., and the Gators
would face Wake Forest in Providence,
R.I, in the opening round.
I agree with his assumptions about
Florida State, however, I'm not so sure
the Gators didn't play themselves back
onto the bubble with their loss at
Georgia Saturday. If Florida managed a
win over Vandy Tuesday, this is a moot
point. If not, the Gators might need an
unlikely victory over Kentucky this
weekend or two wins in next week's SEC
Tournament to have a shot at the Big
Dance.

Hornets are


3-1 on season


Pirates win a pair
BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Yulee Hornets suffered their first loss
of the season Feb. 24 in Brunswick, Ga. Glynn
Academy outlasted Yulee, scoring a pair of
unearned runs in the bottom of the sixth
inning and held on for a 15-14 victory.
Marcus Taylor started on the mound for
the Hornets with Nolen Carlyle, Adam Lang
and Buck Marell throwing innings in relief.
"Offensively, Yulee had a great night with
13 hits and every starter recording at least one
RBI," said Will Minor, head baseball coach at
Yulee High School.
Cody Layfield (2-for-3, two runs, two RBIs,
a double), Andrew Minor (3-for-4, two runs,
two RBIs, a double), Jonathan Beaton (2-for-
5, an RBI, a double) and Jeremy Taylor (2-for-
5,'an,RBI, a double) led the HorIrnets at the
plate.
Glynn Academy jumped out to a 4-0 lead in
the first, but Yulee responded by putting up
two runs in the second and seven in the third.
"We.were able to knock their No. 1 pitch-
er (who has signed with Middle Georgia) out
of the game in the third," Coach Minor said.
"I was proud, of our effort and our offensive
output, but we just could not hold them defen-
sively in the sixth inning. We played hard and,
showed ourj- IKve- that we have the bats this
year to hit good pitching."
Yulee rebounded with Thursday's 24-6
thumping of host Raines.
Andrew Minor (2-0) picked up the win with
six strikeouts and no earned runs. Cameron
Petras also pitched two innings, giving up no
earned runs.
Andrew Minor (4-for-6, seven RBIs, a dou-
ble, a triple), Beaton (3-for-4, three runs, two
RBIs, two doubles), Taylor (2-for-3, three runs,
an RBI), Layfield (three runs), Marcus Taylor
(four runs), Zach Camp (two RBIs, two runs),
Sean Williams (three runs) and Taylor Massey
(3 runs) were key contributors on offense.
"Offensively, the team has really been
swinging the bat well," Coach Minor said.
"Defensively, we are still needing to improve
on making the routine plays. Hopefully it can
all come together soon."
Yulee(3-1 and 1-0 in the'Aiit-ict)-took on
West Nassau Tuesday at the Baseball Grounds
in Jacksonville. The Hornets host Jackson
Thursday at 6 p.m. and Hawthorne Friday at
7 p.m.
The Fernandina Beach High School
Pirates picked up a pair of wins last week,
beating Ppnte Vedra 5-2 Feb. 23 and Bishop
Snyder 7,6 on Saturday.
'We're still fighting the injury bug," Coach
Ken Roland said. "We're slowly getting players
back. We had (Trent) Luman back Tuesday
and we're still waiting on (Myles) Rabant.
"We're playing six out of seven innings and
not finishing games. We put together a pret-
ty good game against a solid Ponte Vedra
team. That was a positive this early. Our young
guys are doing pretty good. We just have a lit-
tle trouble with the.momentum and the flow
of the game.
"Tim (Roszell) pitched well Tuesday. Tyler
(Thornton) came in in relief and got the save.
It was a good outing for us. Saturday we were
a little sloppy. We had to erase a five-run deficit.
'We didn't pitch very well. Good relief from
Harrison (Yonn). Our pitching depth prob-
lem is stretching our staff early."
Roszell struck out six, walked two and gave
up four hits Feb. 23. Zack Spencer had a pair
of hits. Bobby Severance had a double. Luman
and Thornton had doubles Saturday.

McKenzie, Bertha win IFA Redfish Tournament title


It was pretty much agreed
upon by many of the
Inshore Fishing
Association redfish
teams attending the official
captain's meeting the tourna-
ment would be won by fishing
dead on the bottom with
stinky baits, including
Berkley Gulp and Fish Bites
products. Weather conditions
indicated a
low pressure
moving
through dur-
ing the day
of the tour-
nament,
offering
ideal redfish
conditions.
OUTDOORS Add light
... and variable
winds to the
TeryLacoss mix, making
fishing conditions perfect.
"We were sure fooled by
the weather," Sam Bertha Sr.
said. "We had been catching
our redfish during practice
with crank baits. However,
during the tournament day,
our crank bait pattern wasn't
producing. We switched to
stinky baits with the same
results."
Bertha of Bunnel and
Gary McKenzie of Bartow are
both seasoned-redfish pros.
It was time for the seasoned
redfish team to switch fishing
patterns.
"We knew it was time to
drop down' our fishing tackle
from 20-pound to 10-pound
braided lines and our shock-
leaders from 20-pound to 15-
pound test. We also switched
lures to 1/8-ounce jig heads
rigged to four-inch Bass
Assassin split tail shads in the
watermelon and red flake
color pattern."
Bertha and McKenzie had
run south to the St. Augustine
flats and fished an area where
a large flat fed into a deep
slough where oyster bars
were abundant.
"Qur big bites came just
when the tide was slacking
during early afternoon," Ber-
tha said. "The slow-moving
current had schooled up the
reds and it also allowed us to
work the lures slowly in front
of the redfih .However,.our ,.
keyNtup cUIl.v-S a-nitching
ihr rod rip and actually aggia-
vating those reds to bite."
The seasoned redfish team
had three redfish bites, but
they were the right-bites.
Their win was the first for the
Florida team worth $30,000 in
cash and prizes.
Local red fisherman cap-
tain Jeff Crumpton and his
partner, Stephen Fields of
Duewest, S.C., also ran south
to catch their two big reds.
"We just thought there
would be too much fishing
pressure in the Amelia Island
area," Crumpton said. "We
had practiced south of Jack-
sonville and found some nice
schools of reds and, more
importantly, the water was
clear."
Terry David Lacoss and I
fished in our home waters of
Amelia Island and did find
several redfish boats fishing
in the same waters. Luckily
we found our spot unoccupied

AIP ladies host Rally for the Cure event


Despite the cold weather, the Amelia Island
Plantation's Women's Golf Association hosted
its annual Rally for the Cure tournament Feb.
11. Because of pool weather conditions, the
tournament was shortened to a nine-hole
shambles. Seventy-nine women from Long
Point, Amelia River, Fernandina Beach Golf
Club and Golf Club of Amelia Island met for
breakfast bites before fighting the rugged con-
ditions on the golf course.
After golf, they gathered again at the Long
Point Clubhouse for lunch, prizes and a raffle
for prizes. Participants in the raffle won some
wonderful prizes donated by many of the gen-
erdus individuals and businesses on Amelia
Island.
For the front nine, first place went to the
team of Claudeen Lindberg, Marge Kasparian,


Humphrey

Wednesday marked the
' last week in February for the
blitz. Although it is the short-
est month in the year weath-
erwise, it seemed as if it
would never come to an end,
and Wednesday was one of
those days when rain was in
the forecast but, when 53
players teed off in the blitz,
the skies were cloudy but no
rain. However, in the middle
of the round, the rains did
come and two players
dropped out.
'In spite of the rain and
chllinigwitds individuall hon-
-os--wer-highasJeff ---
Humphrey had an eagle on
No. 4 south, enabling him to
shoot an 80 and plus 11
points. There was a five-way
. tie for the remaining places at
plus 9 between Jack Croake
(78), Al Jump (one over his
age, 86), Dave Mason (77),
Lee Murray (82) and Rich
Vredenburgh (84).
Jump's plus 9 got a lot of
help from Tony Jarzyna (81,
plus 8), Ron Dandurand (83,
plus 5) and Jim Raffone (83,
plus 4), while Dennis
Sassenger had an 87 and
minus 2 as the team finished
in first place at plus 24.
An all-plus team finished a
close second at plus 22 that
included two plus 8s Larry
Gallo (84) and Charles
Kicklighter (79) along with
Gerald Wilder (85 plus 4) and
Tim Forristal (84 plus 2).
With all four winning
teams being in double fig-
ures, there was a tie for third
and fourth places at plus 14.
The teams involved were
made up of Chuck Helen-
brook (95, minus 1), Mason
(plus 9), Fred Boatright (84,
plus 2), Stan Miller (89, plus
4) and an-all plus team of
Larry Brauda (83, plus 7),
Mickey Rushton (81, plus 4),
Bob Dorsey (78, plus 2),
Hydie Peterson (79, plus 1).
Friday was a good day for
playing golf in spite of the
cool breeze as 68 players took
part in the blitz, but surpris-
ingly the scores were not as
good as Wednesday's. Sammy
Alvarez had a good round of
two-under-par 71, good for
plus 9 points, but did not
make it onto a winning team.
Bob Dorsey with a 76 and
plus 5 was second. There was
,a tie for third at plus 4
between Bob Sibley (88) and
John Vanderhoof (77).
The team scoring was also
lower as plus 4 was good
enough to win first place for


Anne Redden and Barbara Patton with a score
of 57. The team of Gail J3iondi, Janice Pierce,
Sue Hoback and Margaret O'Brieri-placed first
on the back side with. ad61. Second, place on
the front nine went to Patty Miller, Pat Gieg,
Maryanne Salas and Chris Lashbrook with a
score of 60 while the team of Gerry Okin,
Rosalind Bowles, Emma Barcasky and Marilyn
Booth captured third with a 63.
For the back nine, second place went to the
team of Alice Messina, Ginny Ardia, Elizabeth
Wilkes and Brenda Price with a 64 while :
Maryse O'Brien, Juliann Hensler, Diane
Macdonell and Bobbie Wages placed third

went in the water at No. 17.


l ^ One of the first things that we
--need to learn when we get
Steady to tee off is to have the
proper ball position. More than
J half the time, the ball is not
lined up with our body properly,
resulting in an errant drive. For
every inch that the ball is teed up too far
back in your stance, it puts the flight of the
ball some 15-20 yards off of your intended
line. It is almost a universal rule that the ball
should be close to even with the tip of your
front shoulder. This will allow the clubface to
make a full rotation through the ball, maxi-
mizing your distance, accuracy and consis-
tency. Place the ball in line with your front
heel and make- sure that the heels of your
feet are shoulder width apart.


In recognition of the numerous contributions that African Americans have made to golf
over more than a century, the United States Golf Association and The PGA of America
have agreed to create a centralized repository for artifacts and documents related to the 'CN'-3s"
history of African Americans in golf, to be located at the USGA Museum in Far Hills, N.J. The
USGA Museum will serve as the organization charged with collecting, documenting and
preserving the artifacts, memorabilia and documents related to the rich history of African-
American golf. The PGA of America will be charged with creating public exhibitions and programs to present
this history to diverse audiences. "It is important that our two organizations undertake the initiative to preserve
the stories of African Americans in golf now and not run the risk of those stories potentially being lost," said David
Fay, USGA executive director. "This is an important project for golfs history, as well as the future of our game."

featured an unusual presentation by Tara Fields on the
iconography and meaning of tombstones. Fields has sur-
veyed more than 10,000 graves in Camden County, Ga.,

after visiting the Burnt Forge Cemetery there. She is

Battling the bulge


one walk at a time


I take a less than traditional
approach to New Year's resolu-
tions. That's why I am just get-
ting around to thinking about
them. I don't feel compelled to
start them as soon as the New
Year begins. I also am pretty
lenient with myself. I allow
myself the entire year to reach
my goals. I have a better suc-
cess rate that way. And I like to
set goals for my dogs as well. I
find it a lot easier to achieve
their goals than I do mine.
Take Mae, for instance. As
2009 came to a close, I couldn't
help noticing that she seemed
to have put on a few extra
pounds. One reason I couldn't
help noticing was, that my
friends and family began mak-
ing snide comments about her
bulk. In my family, "them's fight-
in' words." You may have just as
well told me I was getting fat
(alas, New Year's Resolution
No. 1). We take it very person-
ally when our dogs start to get
pudgy. And while I tried to pass
it off as the growth of her win-
ter coat, a trip to the vet con-
firmed the ugly truth. I imme-
diately agreed to have blood
work done on her, certain that
there must be a medical cause.
But no, she was just getting fat.
How could this have hap-
pened? Well, according to the
American Veterinary Medical
Association, Mae is not alone.
Approximately 25 percent of
American pets are obese. And
here's the shocker it's caused
by too many calories and not
enough exercise! Go figure.
What's more disturbing are the
consequences of weight gain.
. Just like in humans, obesity can
decrease life span and cause
joint and spinal problems and
heart disease. That's in addi-
tion to creating a pet with little
- energy andenthusiasm for life
outside the food bowl.
Truthfully,.I see a fair num-
ber of overweight pets iin my
grooming practice. So I knew it
happens to other people's dogs.
But not mine! So Mae and I had
to take a look at our lifestyle.
No question she is a food
hound. She will eat anything
that doesn't eat her first. The
idea of significantly cutting her
food wasn't too appealing. After
determining with the vet
(always the first step) that there
was no medical reason for her


weight gain,
we looked at
the type of
food she was
d.. '5 eating. At 13,
Sit was time
that Mae was
put on a food
for senior
dogs. These
foods are
.IAPPY made to due-
PETi crease the
caloric intake
for less active
Laurie dogs. While
Buckley decreasing
the amount of
dry food she gets, I also
increased the amount of veg-
etables and added some canned
pumpkin to her diet. Her treats
now consist of carrots, low-fat
chicken hot dogs and dried
meat.
Then we turned to our exer-
cise program. Gone are the
days when I used to walk three
dogs for 90 minutes every day
just so sanity prevailed in the
house. As my dogs have aged,
our daily walks have gotten
shorter. Mae doesn't like to
walk when it's too hot or too
cold. And she's not keen on
walking after dark or in the rain,
either. So her laziness and my
busy schedule have contributed
to the problem for both of us.
We now wake up a little earlier
(not always easy) and walk
briskly for 30 minutes. When-
ever possible we take a second
walk in the afternoon.
I am pleased to say that our
efforts are paying off. Mae has
already lost-three pounds. I
haven't been so fortunate. But
like I said, I find it a lot easier to
decrease her calories than I do
mine.
Oh, Trixie has a New Year's
resolution too to increase her
connection and sociabilitywith
people. Ironically, that's an area
that I have to work on also!

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3.2010 LEISURE News-Leader


PEOPLE &PLACES Series addresses critical issue


Last month, the Salt & Light Series of the
Amelia Plantation Chapel addressed a critical
issue of our day, "Can Christians and Muslims
Live Together in Peace?" Akif Ayden, head of the
Amity Turkish Cultural Center in Jacksonville
and founder of the Table of Abraham, tried,
unsuccessfully, to persuade his audience that
the Quran was a good basis for peaceful co-exis-
tence between Christianity and Islam.
On Thursday at 3 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall
of the chapel, the Rev. Dan McNerney, a patriotic
American and former businessman, will share his
strong view about this thorny question.
McNerney has dedicated the last 10 years
of his life to bringing the Good News of Jesus

tain fisheries resources in the
