County postcards t

News Leader

The Nassau County Clerk of Court has
criticized a plan by the county commission
to mail postcards with buti'.i informa-
tion" to county citizens, calling the move
"ill advised."
The commissioners voted Tuesday at a
special budget meeting to appropriate
$1,750 from their discretionary funds to
pay for a mailing, which would be sent out
with tax notices, to inform county residents
of where their tax dollars were going.
"We've had numerous discussions

about how we needed to communicate bet-
ter with the public," Commissioner Barry
Holloway said Thursday. "We send out 40-
something thousand tax notices. (We're
considering) including information in there
about where your tax dollars are being
spent not so much how we've reduced,
but to let the taxpayers know, This is how
your money is being spent.'"
Clerk of Court John Crawford, howev-
er, criticized the plan.
"While the explanation given for the
expenditure sounds plausible, after review-
ing the draft minutes of your meeting I
would respectfully caution you on making

Wednesday letter to the commission. 'Taxp

"... Let me be clear that I do not believe than
there is a legal prohibition against pro-
vidinfg additional budget or taxing infor-
mation," Crawford added. "But I do believe
that the approach you have voted on, using

Daniel Salmon, Landfill/Solid Waste

Bridge supervisor Butch Hartman
were all fired Aug. 6 for their roles in
the scandal. A fourth department head,
Code Enforcement director Brenda,
Rothwell, resigned Aug. 5.
The four had been captured in a
bad light on video, obtained by a private
investigator, at county expense during
the Governor's Hurricane Conference
in May. Subsequent investigation
showed that they had attended only a
day and a half of training seminars dur-

In firing Pickett, Hartman and
Salmon, Selby cited "willful" misrep-
resentation on travel reimbursement
requests, pointing out that the three
administrators charged the county for
food and lodging for all four days of the
conference essentially taking a paid
vacation at county expense.
All three appealed their termina-

stress, embarrassment and mental
anguish he has suffered," wrote John

Florida gains population

University ofFlorida
GAINESVILLE -After declining
for the first time since the end of
World War I!, Florida's population
grew once again last year, a hopeful
yet tentative sign that the worst of
the recession may have passed,
according to the latest preliminary
.population estimates from the
University of Florida.
The Sunshine State is estimated
to have had the modest addition of
more than 21,000 residents between
2(X)9 and 2010 after its population fell
by more than 56,000 between 2008
and 2009, said Stan Smith, director of
UF's Bureau of Economic and
Business Research.
"Even though the state turned it
around, it still represents the smallest
population increase since the 1940s

Labor Day boaters urged to watch for manatees.

The last of the big summer holidays is
almost here. An upswing in boating traf-
fic is expected throughout the long Labor
Day weekend, and Save the Manatee
Club is urging the boating community to
be extra vigilant, especially in light of the
crises manatees have already had to deal
with this year.
"The events of 2010 have been tragic
for the entire manatee population, which
has been dealt one terrible blow after
another," said Patrick Rose, Save the
Manatee Club's executive director. "Last
year's all-time record for total mortality
has already been shattered this year.
Since Jan. 1, over 600 manatees have
died. That's more than 10 percent of the
entire known population! Nearly half died
as a result of Florida's unprecedented
cold winter."
Although the Deepwater Horizon Well
is sealed, the unprecedented oil spill in
the Gulf of Mexico remains a major
threat to manatees, and the large variety
of marine and freshwater vegetation upon
which they depend, said Rose. Oil can-
directly pollute the seagrasses and other
vegetation that manatees and other
wildlife depend on for their survival and
can also block sunlight required for vege-
tation to grow.
"We also have substantial concerns
regarding massive amounts of chemical
dispersants that have been pumped and
sprayed to break up the oil and need to
watch for ill effects on endangered mana-
tees and other wildlife. A recent report by

Further, last year a record number of
manatees were killed by boat strikes.
Recent manatee mortality statistics from
the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission reveal that deaths from boat
strikes in 2010 are keeping pace with
prior years.
"We feel it's vital to work with the
boating community to help minimize
watercraft-related manatee injuries and
deaths," said Dr. Katie Tripp, director of
science and conservation for Save the
Manatee Club. "We believe in empower-
ing the boating community so that each
boater is aware of his or her ability to pro-
tect manatees by always looking out for
them while safely enjoying Florida's
beautiful waterways."
The club produces and distributes a
variety of free public awareness materials
designed to keep the waterways safer for
Florida's endangered manatees. Florida
boaters can request bright yellow water-
proof boating banners to alert other
boaters when manatees are in the area.
There are also newly designed shoreline
property signs that encourage boaters to
keep it slow, and it also features the

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) hotline number (1-
888-404-3922) for reporting injured mana-
tees. Plus, the new matching boating
decal can be placed on all Florida water-
craft, from kayaks to jet skis.
Requests for the banners, signs, and

Tripp asks Florida boaters to help
with manatee protection by watching
out for the meandering marine mammals
on their travels. "Slow down if manatees
are sighted, follow-posted boat speed reg-
ulations at all times, and stay in deep
water channels whenever possible."
Those who see an injured, dead,
tagged or orphaned manatee, or a mana-
tee who is being harassed, are asked to
call the FWC hotline number at 1-888-
404-FWCC (3922) or #FWC or *FWC on
cellular phones, or use VHF Channel 16
on marine radios. Tripp is also recom-
mending that recreational boaters carry
up-to-date navigation charts aboard their
vessels to avoid shallow areas where
manatees feed and rest.

They righted the wrong, and
we're happy about that."
In his letter, Selby called
Walker's termination "exces-
sive and unwarranted."
"Although I am not con-
vinced that complete exoner-
ation is in order, I have
reached the conclusion that
there are enough extenuating
circumstances and uncertain-
ties surrounding this situation
to support my reversing the
decision to terminate your
employment," he wrote.
Selby added that Walker
would receive back pay for the
period of June 8 to Aug. 24 -
including a previously sus-
pended step increase retroac-
tive to March 19. His vacation
and sick leave accruals for that
time will also be restored, as
will his insurance and Florida
Retirement System benefits.
"Mr. Walker comes back in
a 'restored' status as if he had
never left employment," Selby
wrote in a memo to Human
Resources director Chili Pope.
Rothwell resigned after
coming under fire for her part
in a scandal during the Gover-
nor's Hurricane Conference
in May. A private investigator
obtained footage of her and
three other department heads
engaging in frivolity, includ-
ing sexual conduct, while on
the county's dime. The other
three administrators -

represented your travel plans

ment request," Selby wrote.
"As a department head,
you were charged with leading
by example and serving as a
good steward of public funds,"
he added. "In my opinion, your

Conference fell considerably

were fired, the day after
Rothwell resigned, for misus-
ing county funds by not attend-
ing all the training seminars
for which they had registered.
'The playing field changed
when Rothwell was engaged
in questionable conduct,"
Baker said. "Once that came
out, I got the feeling Mr. Selby
could be reasonable about
things. If he would have had to
go against the sitting supervi-
sor (Rothwell), that would
have been more difficult. But
once she resigned, that wasn't
Sa consideration."
A temporary injunction
against repeat violence filed
by Rothwell against Walker
July 21 is still pending, but
Baker said he hopes to have it
resolved soon. A hearing in
the case is scheduled for
September, he said.
"We feel we can prove (the
allegations are) unfounded,"
Baker said. "(The injunction)
is legally insufficient and fac-
tually incorrect"
Rothwell obtained the
injunction after she told the
court she was fearful of
Walker and that he was tak-
ing pictures over the fence of
her home. But Baker contends
the photos were taken while
Walker was sitting in a car in
front of the residence.
Walker was allegedly pho-
tographing an RV parked in
the yard that represented a
code violation. He said a wit-
ness riding in the car would
corroborate Walker's side of
the story in court.

County trims lifeguard program


The Nassau County Com-
mission decided Tuesday to cut
back on the county's lifeguard
program, according to Office
of Management and Budget
Director Shanea Jones.
The OMB brought the issue
forward Tuesday at a special
budget meeting, Jones said.
The meeting was called prima-
rily to address whether the
county wanted to eliminate its
lifeguards and contract with the
city for the service. However,
Jones said the Building
Maintenance Department,
which employs the lifeguards,
proposed an alternate plan.

Are you ready

for hurricane?

Get ready now

Hurricane Earl was swirling
toward the East Coast of the
United States but was not
expected to significantly affect
Nassau County apart from high
wave action and possible ero-
sion effects from the storm for
one or two days.
Nassau County Emergency
Management advised beachgo-
ers to pay close attention to
wave conditions as in all likeli-
hood there would be rip cur-
rents connected with the effects
of Hurricane Earl.
Nassau County Emergency
Management will continue to
monitor conditions in the
Atlantic and will advise accord-
ingly if Nassau County is expect-
ed to be impacted by future
storms. Two storms, Fiona and
Gaston, were moving across the
Atlantic on Thursday.
As the peak of hurricane sea-
son activity approaches, all
Nassau County residents were
strongly encouraged to make
personal preparedness plans,
particularly those with special
needs. This includes people
such as frail elderly, those who
require electricity for home oxy-
gen equipment and the wheel-
Residents with special needs
should register with Nassau
County Emergency
-Management by downloading
and mailing a form that can be

also available on the Nassau
County government website
and at various locations
throughout the county, includ-
ing the Nassau County Health
Department, fire/rescue sta-
tions, Baptist Medical Center
Nassau and other health and
social service agencies.
Other advice:
Assemble a disaster supply
kit to use at home or take dur-
ing an evacuation. General
items include bottled water, non-
perishable food, extra medi-
cines, flashlight, battery oper-
ated radio and extra batteries.
Have an emeigencyplan in'

Hurricane Earl is not

erosion and rip cur-

if you have to evacuate and how
you will get there. Also, keep
important contacts with your
emergency kit or and have an
out-of-state contact that can
track you and your family dur-
ing a disaster.
Local area schools will be
used as general shelters in the
event a hurricane impacts our
area. Shelters will provide basic
needs such as food and shelter
and should be used as a backup
option if you have unique com-
fort needs.
Stay informed by knowing
where you will get emergency
information before, during and
after a disaster. The National
Weather Service, National
Hurricane Center websites and
the Weather Channel are great
for following a hurricane in the
days prior to impact. Local radio

may need such as closures,
evacuation orders and where to

Noted urbanist and author
'.dward T McMahon will visit
Fernandina Beach on Thursday
and Friday to meet with gov-

McMahon will present his

dations to the public at 7 p.m.
Thursday in Burns Hall, St.
Peter's Episcopal Church, 801

His talk is entitled "Revitaliz-

the adoption of a local historic
district ordinance to protect his-
lorically significant buildings.
Its current efforts are directed
toward saving, restoring and re-
using Fernandina's historic
downtown post office building.
Restoration Foundation
President Susan Siegmund said
that the timing of McMahon's
visit and talk couldn't be better.
"The city commission has set a
goal to develop a 5-year plan to
revitalize our historic down-
town," she said. "The Historic
District Council recently pre-
sented a think piece to the com-
mission citing the importance of
the historic district to the eco-
nomic well-being of our city and

calling for private/public part-
nerphips to revitalize the his-
toric district. The Restoration
Foundation has heard that call.
We hope that Mr. McMahon
will offer some ideas and inspire
renewed community interest in
saving the historic buildings
like the post office that make
our city so special."
According to McMahon,
"Growth is inevitable and desir-
able, but destruction of com-
munity character is not. The
question is not whether your
part of the world is going to
change. The question is how."
McMahon said he has found
that property values appreciat-
ed more in historic districts than
in other areas of the cities- 1.5
to 5 times faster than compaia-
ble areas not in historic districts.
McMahon has organized
successful efforts to acquire
and protect urban parkland,
wilderness areas and other con-
servation properties. He has an
M.A. in Urban Studies from the
University of Alabama and aJ.D.
from Georgetown University
Law School, where he taught

Big-box businesses

- invisible owners

In the last 30 years our
business interactions have
evolved almost 180 degrees.
A glaring example would be
that 82 percent of restaurant
volume comes from chains.
The days of the neighbor-
hood family-owned eateries
are all but numbered.
This statistic does not
suggest that it is 82 percent IEFFER'S
of the restaurants, but 82 CORNER
percent of the volume. It...
would take 5 to 10 stand-
alone Italian places to equal RickKeffer
the volume of one Carraba's. We go to
Petsmart instead of the corner pet store. And
then there is the pacesetter and number one
private'employer in our country, Walmart. In
each of theses examples, there is a lot to
admire and economies of scale in purchasing
give them some advantage.
Part of this big-box evolution is public
ownership. Shareholder-owned companies
pish hard for quarterly numbers and have a
business model to follow at new locations. All
of this is understandable and not to be cri-
tiqued. What is still nice is going to a restau-
rant where the owner/chef comes to the table
to ask about your meal or where a concern
can be discussed in person with the owner
who has the motive to act on the spot. These
opportunities still exist and were the rule,
rather than the exception, not too long ago.

In that this is a car column, you know
where I am going with this. The days of
owner/operator dealerships have changed
and will continue to. AutoNation, Carmax,
Penske and many other public and private
dealership groups have changed the land-
scape. And the manufacturers like it. They
want fewer and bigger dealerships.
I There is almost the same number of
Toyota dealerships now as there were six or
.eight years ago about a-net gain of 25 deal-
erships. Their experience shows people will
drive 20, 30, 40, 50 miles to buy and service
their product. Why have a small dealership to
add to their network and workload? A classic
big-box case study.
In our area you are not having to deal with
Coastal Chevrolet, Al Ford or Nassau
Chrysler. Your dealers have names, offices in
the dealership and checks going out the door
to every ball team and nonprofit agency in the
county. Yes, this is a plug for your local deal-
ers, including some fine used car operators
who contribute a lot. Call me a dinosaur, but I
liked sitting at the counter of a drug store
soda fountain where the owner was in plain
view filling prescriptions. While rare, it is still
to be found and appreciated throughout
Nassau County.

Son who was the ultimate free
We sought out legislation
that served only the good of
mankind. We discussed it
until every question was
answered and we knew that
we had reached our goal that
free men could actually live
under, and if called upon,
would die for. When we
passed the laws, they were
Godly, based on the Ten
Commandments. Our vision
was based on the grounds of
principles, morality and they
represented justice for human
life. Remember we warned
you against the time when
men and women would seek
to obtain offices in govern-
ment through lies and out-
right deceptions. We feared
that there would be those
whose main purpose would
be to turn America into some-
thing that God nor we could
ever recognize.
As you are witnessing this
very day, the progressive
agenda is being implemented
with your knowledge, but
against your will. Their main
purpose is not to build a
greater America, but to
destroy her from within.
We are humbly honored
and grateful that it was
our hands that God chose
to create America. It is
through the hands of men
and women today that Satan
chooses to destroy America,
and brings in his New World
The offices of government
that we created were
designed to judge righteously
and fairly through the
Constitution and the Bill of
Rights. These same offices
have become the means that
the progressive movement of
today is using to distort and
deny the intent we set forth
for freedom.
The highest court has
altered for now the purpose of
America and you must
restore it while you still can.
May God show mercy on the
United States of America!

The News-Leader is published with pride weekly

that strong newspapers build strong communi-

goal is to publish distinguished and profitable

After months of hard work, sweat and
a few bucks out of pocket, along
with the help of a very capable
friend and neighbor and a patient
wife, I finally got finished restoring the old
sailboat I bought. A few names were consid-
ered and tossed aside before we finally settled
on Paddy West. The name comes from a
humorous song about a shady Liverpool chap
who operates an ersatz school for apprentice
sailors out of his home.
Being of Irish ancestry and a big fan of
Irish folk music in general, and the Clancy
Brothers with Tommy Makem, in particular, I
couldn't resist. If you can listen to Paddy West
and not laugh, or at least grin, your sense of
humor is in the doldrums.
But there's another song on that same
album that isn't funny. It's heartrending. And if
you can't listen to that one and be moved, your
humanity's definitely on the wrong tack. It's
about what came to be known as the Dreadful
Gale, a brutal and sudden winter storm in the
winter of 1889 that claimed a dozen ships.and
nearly a hundred North Sea fishermen. The
refrain, alone, can almost make you shiver:
"Three score and ten, boys and men, were lost
from Grimsby town. From Yarmouth down to
Scarborough, many hundreds more were
drowned. Our herring boats, our trawlers, our
fishing smacks as well. They long defied that
bitter night and battled with the swell."

eel in your gut. Try to imagine, if you can,

Take oride in school

- FBHS earns it

Another summer is behind us and Nassau
County's kids are back in school. Many of last
year's graduates are packed and heading off
for college so now might be the perfect time to
reflect on the FBHS Class of 2010 and outline
some of their accomplishments.
After attending the 2010 FBHS commence-
ment ceremony, I came away both proud and
amazed at the class's accomplishments. Proud
to be associated with this school through the
community and amazed at how strong this
class seems compared to my own class of 1988
from FBHS. We all believe school was much
harder or we were much smarter in our
own school days, but I am not ashamed to say
that this class and this high school is very dif-
ferent and far superior than the one I attended.
Academically, in a class of 189 seniors, the
statistics speak for themselves: 52 percent

graduated with a weighted
GPA of 3.5 or higher; 49
percent qualified for
Florida Bright Futures
u^W Scholarships; and 87 per-
cent attained the state's
"College Ready
Designation." These gradu-
ates will attend at least 48
Different colleges through-
orbett out the country. Most
impressively, 14 graduated
with an un-weighted GPA of 4.0 (allA's for four
years of high school). The class as a whole
earned more than $3.6 million in scholarships
and awards to attend institutions of higher
Many seniors also graduated with working
skills in the culinary arts, or completed cours-

es to become certified nursing assistants.
Others took dual enrollment classes through
community college to earn credits toward
careers as emergency medical technicians or
air traffic controllers.
Of course, high school is not just about the
classroom, so the school offers multitudes of
activities outside academia, including sports
teams, High Q, Envirothon, Interact, marching
band, Teen Court, student government,
National Honor Society and many others.
My interest in FBHS is due not only to
being a third-generation alum at the high
school, but also because I am connected to the
school through the FBHS Foundation. The
FBHS Foundation is a non-profit organization
that was formed more than 25 years ago to
help raise funds for academics. Our mission is
to enhance the classroom experience for stu-

dents and teachers. We have accomplished
much, but we would rather give credit to the
ones that earned it with continued hard work -
the staff, the administration and the students of
I would encourage the citizens of
Fernandina Beach to not only take great pride
in our high school and indeed in all of our
schools but I also encourage you to attend
foundation fundraisers or become involved
with the Foundation itself. But most of all, I
would encourage parents of school-age chil-
dren in Fernandina to keep their eye on FBHS.
Monitor closely the continued success of the
school and when the time comes to choose
between public school and private school, keep
the talent here in town and off of 1-95.
Eric Corbett is.president of the FBHS


I am continually grateful for Pat
Foster-Turley's wonderful columns to
help us better understand the world of
Amelia Island and surrounding areas
("Wild Ways" on Wednesdays). In
addition, she is so brilliant that her
expertise takes her worldwide and we
can learn about remote countries from
a gifted naturalist with only the cost of

is for Amelia Island! Thanks Pat, and

Respect for flags
On my way to work in Jacksonville
daily I pass the majestic American flag
flying at Ron Anderson Chevrolet.
Then I pass the Florida Department of
Motor Vehicles where you would not
know that the state flag was flying it is
so faded. As I come to the Yulee post
office you can hardly see the stars in
the American flag. Go down Eighth
Street past the used car dealer and
see all the torn and tattered American
flags they display out front.
Except for the flag at Ron Anderson
these others are a disgrace. I served
20 years in the Navy and am a lifelong
resident of Florida and I cannot under-
stand why a state or federal building
would display flags like these. Too
many men and women have made sac-
rifices with injuries, torture, impris-
onment, MIA and even the ultimate
price of death to have the American
flag fly over this country. With this
kind of respect to the flag why would
our young people want to show

It was wonderfulwhen I came over
the bridge to Fernandina to look off in
the distance and above the trees was
this huge American flag waving in the
air. A sight to see.

Golf great
Watching Phil Mickelson play golf
used to be fun.
But since reading recently about
Phil's "recovering from a painful bout
of arthritis and has become a vege-
tarian," I feel frustrated watching this
class act of a golfer, because his
becoming vegetarian is only treating
his symptoms and not getting at the
deep down cause.
For instance, without hydrochloric
acid, acid put into our stomach by God
at our birth, yet often depleted when
we reach our 30s, we become like Phil
- not able to eat, digest, absorb, utilize
and excrete our food properly.
Wichita's Chad Krier, M.D., D.C.,
author of Why Stomach Acid is
Beneficial to You (2010), lists arthritis
as one of the many diseases associat-
ed with low or non-existent stomach
Houston's Ruth Yale Long, Ph.D.,
author of Home Study Course in the
New Nutrition (1989) and founder of
the Nutrition Education Association
(1984), told at a nutrition conference
how she, as a high school teacher,
became so riddled with arthritis she
was almost wheelchair-bound.
She then discovered the 150-year-
old hydrochloric acid tablets in a
health food store, began taking them
daily and changed her way of eating as
Dr. Long began eating fresh veg-


tables, whole fruits, whole grains,
eggs (one or two a day and cooked
with extra eggs), natural cheeses,
beans, nuts, four ounces of red meat
four times a week or less, chicken and
fish. She began drinking only water
and small amounts of whole milk.
Also, she included daily large
amounts of the 51 food supplements
our bodies need as insurance because
of soil depletion.
Not only did Dr. Long become well,
she gave up her high school teaching
and began teaching, lecturing and writ-

ing about nutrition.
When will the medical profession
(AMA) accept the fact that hydrochlo-
ric acid tables should be a mainstay for
health in adults?
And when will doctors begin to
suggest the use of this simple, inex-
pensive supplement, also known com-
mercially as betaine hydrochloride,
without fear that the AMA will chastise
Phil Mickelson borders on being
one of our greatest golfers ever ath-
letically, morally, spiritually and phil-

But if he continues to become
weakened by "bouts of arthritis"
because his doctors are not treating
the cause and simply treating the
symptoms, Phil won't be sharing his
greatness much longer.
Hopefully, Phil's doctors will
become truly nutrition-minded.
They, too, would be so much better
And so would Phil!

A project I had dreaded undertaking during
the heat of summer, I nevertheless mustered
the courage to do what needed to be done and
tackled the job of cleaning up the old home
place. After nearly six months of cleaning,
planting, sprucing up and watering, I have
completed my version of landscaping the front
and backyard of my mother's garden.
Although I am proud of the updated look, I
must share the final results with both of my
parents. Paul Ewing, who passed away in 1992,
originally laid the bricks for our 24-by-40-foot

the signature white picket lence, built out ol
wood after I went off to college in 1962. Two
years ago, the fence was salvaged from 45
years of exposure to the elements. Several rot-
ting support pieces along with the pickets
were painstakingly restored by local craftsman
Tommy Brazell. Now the old fence looks
brand new again.
In the backyard, where Yetta Ewing had
created a Gerbing Nursery-like atmosphere
with abundant azaleas and thousands of impa-
tiens, I was faced with the challenge of recreat-
ing an area that had deteriorated due to sever-

they arrived in the port of Fernandina to pick
up lumber and other supplies for the return

I also added a number of white dividers,
benches and flower pots designed to draw
your eyes to other more secluded parts of
mom's garden. All in all, my old backyard has
been transformed to something near its for-

took both of my parents to lay the groundwork
for what you see today.

kudos to mom for doing what they did. Drive

Appreciation shown for jail church ministry

I was hungry and you gave me some-
thing to eat I was thirsty and you
gave me drink. I was a stranger and
you took me in, was naked and you
clothed me, sick and you cared for me,
was in prison and you visited me. And
the Lord said unto us, I assure you,
whatever you did for one of the least of
these, my brothers and sisters, you were
also doing it to me. -
Just a few months ago members of
the church ministry for the Nassau
County Jail and Detention Center
shared an appreciation luncheon hosted
by Chaplain William and his lovely wife,
Linda Patterson.
We share a commitment to reach and
provide every Nassau County jail inmate
an opportunity to know Jesus Christ and
be saved. We are all volunteers, relying
on the Holy Spirit, and, with the Grace
of God, meet the opposition with the
sword of the spirit, which is the Word of
Our success is not in us, but in Him.
He says to us to commit our ways unto
the Lord, trust also in Him and He shall

FRIDAY, September 3, 2010/News-Leader



Deep sand, big trucks and more than enough power to help

one. Anyone who's been to
the beach much has proba-
bly heard it a vehicle
stuck in the sand. As I watched
through my rear view mirror, the
hole he dug got deeper and deeper.
It was clear he didn't know what he
was doing. Though it was a bit of an
inconvenience, when I saw that the
man was old and needed help, I
decided to see what I could do.
"How ya doing?" I said to the man
as he limped a bit while walking
toward the back of his truck. "Not so
good," he replied, frustrated by the
whole thing. "I've been to this beach
years ago and never had this prob-
lem," he said as he bent over in an
attempt to look under his truck.
"Well," I replied, "Looks to me like

Rob Goyette

you're going to
have to get a tow
truck. You are real-
ly stuck."
"Ya, I guess
you're right," he
said. "Do you have
a phone I can bor-
"Sure," I replied.
Unfortunately, after
a few phone calls, it
became clear that
the cost of being
towed was more
than he could

That's when I saw it a huge
white diesel, four-wheel drive pickup
truck slowly making its way down
the beach. Though at first glance he

didn't seem interested in stopping,
after I waived him down and explain-
ed the situation, he agreed to help.
I'll never forget the amazing
power of that truck as it pulled him
out Actually, it was almost comical.
For some reason the old man
thought he needed to hold his brake
pedal completely to the floor in order
to keep the chain tight. While it's
true that you don't want to roll into
the person who is pulling you out,
you sure don't want to lock up all
your wheels while they're trying. In
either case, that day it didn't seem to
matter. It was as though the white
truck hardly even felt the load.
With me telling the man to take his
.foot off the brake as he dragged
across the beach thinking he was
helping the process mind you and

the white truck barely flexing its
muscles, I finally just gave up and
watched as raw power overcame not
only the ditch he was in, but the
ignorance that got him there to
begin with.
Interestingly, I had no stones to
throw. I had to ask the question.
How many times have I dug myself a
hole that only God could get me out
of? How many times have I thought I
was helping God by applying added
pressure to a situation, when I
should have been relaxing some and
letting Him work it all out? How
many times, in spite of me, has God
delivered me in my moment of need?
The answer; a bunch!
You've got to know, I've left some
pretty long skid marks at times,
thinking I was helping Him out, yet,

to His glory, over and over again His
powerful hand has pulled me
That said, this article comes to all
of you who perhaps find yourself
stuck. Though it's true, we have a
role to play in our deliverance; it's
also true that ultimately our confi-
dence should never be in ourselves,
but in the merciful and powerful God
who has reached down to save us.
Once we are properly hooked up to
Him, He does the heavy lifting.
"He has rescued us from a terri-
ble death, and He will rescue us in
the future. We are confident that He
will continue to rescue us." (2
Cor. 1:10 God's Word Translation)
Robert L Goyette is pastor of

2-time county MVP to play college hoops


Carlos Holcey's dream is
coming to fruition.
"I always had hopes to keep
playing," said the 2010 graduate
of Fernandina Beach High
School wl* helped steer the
Pirate basketball team to a 52-
7 record over two seasons.
Holcey left Aug. 16 for Min-
nesota after accepting a full
scholarship to play hoops at
Fond du Lac Community Col-
lege in Cloquet.
"I didn't know it would be
so far away, but I'll take it,"
Holcey said.
"They said they liked my
Holcey was an anchor for
the Pirate basketball team the
last three seasons.
"I wasn't as good as I
thought my freshman year,"
Holcey said. "I was looking for-
ward to next year and I ended
up starting."
From his sophomore sea-
son on, Holcey rarely left the
court unless the competition
wasn't evenly matched.
"He spent a lot of time on
the court," said Matt Schreiber,
ead boys basketball coach at
BHS. "But there were many
times we had pretty significant
leads and he didn't play."
That never happened when
the Pirates took on the dnly two
teams that managed wins
against them this season, dis-
trict powerhouse Ribault and,
nationally ranked Providence.
"I didn't want to come out,"
Holcey said of the final match-
up against Ribault even though
a comeback was out of reach.
Holcey made the all-Nassau
County team three years and
was the most valuable player
the last two. He scored more
than 1,300 bints and had more
than 600 rebounds in his four
seasons as a guard for the
Pirates. Holcey also had more
than 300 assists and 250 steals
for FAHS in four years.
"He's been our most valu-
able play( for three years,'
Schreiber said. "His biggest
strength is his versatility.

"As far as a high school bas-
ketball player goes, there's
nothing he can't do. He can
defend small, quick guys. He
can defend bigger guys. He can
take the ball to the basket. He
can shoot from the perimeter.
"And in crunch time he
Holcey was instrumental in
the Pirates' success the last two
years. The team was nine sen-
iprs strong this past season and
went 25-4, losing only to Ribault
and Providence.
"I thought we had a chance
to go all the way, but we got
cut short by Ribault again,"
Holcey said.
Ribault also ended the
Pirates' 27-3 run in 2008-9.
"It was fun. I still miss it,"
Holcey said. "It.was fun to win.
We made Fernandina known.
I'm just glad my name stood
out while I was here."
Holcey started playing the
sport when he was eight, but it
wasn't until he reached middle
school that his talent emerged.
His final season Holcey was
named the offensive MVP at
But the leap to high school
required some adjusting.
"It felt awkward," he said. "I
wasn't used to the pace. People
actually paid attention to me on
the court."
He garnered more attention
and accolades the next four
years as a Pirate.
"I got on TV, which is what
I was dreaming for," Holcey
said. "We really became good
team as the years went on. We
lost a few players after my 11th
grade year, but we still played
together. And we were still win-
He has the same plans for
his new team at Fond du Lac
Community College.
"Ill just do what I did when
I played with guys down here,"
Holcey said. "Get to know
them, their strengths and weak-
Snesses, and use it to win:"
After his final season as a
Pirate, Holcey kept busy with
the men's league at Peck Gym.
"We played for the champi-
onship, but we lost," he said.

LAST GAME: After back-to-back one-point losses to tart the
preseason, the Jaguars earned a 19-13 victory.at Tampa Bay
Saturday, thanks in part to a stingy defense. The Buccaneers
managed just 191 total yards,with 53 coming on the first play
from scrimmage, and nine first downs. Josh Scobee had four
field goals and put the Jaguars on the scoreboard first with a
35-yard field goal set up by a 47-yard return by rookie Scotty
McGee on the opening kickoff. QB David Garrard was 24 of
31 for 211 yards with one interception.
DEFENSIVE LEADERS: S Reggie Nelson leads the team
with 14 tackles while LB Russell Allen ranks second with 13.
LB Jacob Cutrera has a team-high four special teams tackles.
WHAT THE COACH SAID: "I like the way we stopped the
run, the way we got off the field on third down, so I'm seeing
positive signs," Jack Del Rio said. "I thought our tackling was
a little better. I think it continues to get better, we will continue
to work on it."

Malbec shines in theArgentine

For the News-Leader
The malbec grape produces a very
powerful wine, which is why the Romans
and Medieval Europeans liked it so
much, and possibly why, until just
recently, it had not impressed me much.
Perhaps it was the company that made
me order a glass of Argentina's signa-
ture wine at Indigo Alley on Centre
Street, but that glass told me I had to
explore this wine more deeply.
Wine making is an art that can be
affected by many variables. The grape
can be very sensitive to climate and vul-
nerable to disease. Harvesting the grape
at the right moment is critical. Aging
technique and blending with other
grapes influences greatly the final out-
come. Malbec is affected more by these
variables than many other grapes and
therefore has become little more than a

cult wine in its
& NE French home-
ltN Not pro-
gTNERS duced properly
malbec can be
harsh when
young and quickly lose its character as it
ages. For this reason after the Big
Freeze of February 1956 destroyed
much of France's malbec vineyards, it
was not replaced. But it has found a
home in the more stable and friendly cli-
mate of Argentina's Mendoza Province
located in the high plains on the eastern
side of the Andes. As a recent tasting of
malbecs showed, the South American
version now trumps the French.
The Romans planted malbec exten-
sively in the region of southwest France
known as the Aquitaine, centered on the
town of Cahors. Fourth century
Emperor Marcus Aurelius Probus was

its biggest advocate (there is a Chateau
Probus producing a malbec wine today).
The 100-Year-War between England and
France for control of the Aquitaine dis-
rupted wine production until a son of
Cahors, Jacques d'Euse, became Pope
