Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
beagr-aves announced Thursday that
he will not seek reelection in 2012.
The announcement comes after
gr-owing tension and sometimes
public feuding between Seagraves
and the Nassau County State
"I want to start by saying that it has
been a great privilege to have the
opportunity to serve as the sheriff of
Nassau County," Seagraves wrote in
a statement released Thursday. "Also,
it has been an honor to have served as
a law enforcement officer for this com.
munity for the last 27 years. The sher-
iff's office has strived for the last six
years to become one of the best law
enforcement departments in the state
Seagraves went on to tout ait length
his recor-d as sheriff, pointing out that
:during his watch the department

Seagr~aves has been involved in an
increasingly public feud with Assistant
State Attor~ney Wes White since the
latter was appointed by State Attorney
Angela Cor~ey in January 2009.
In recent weeks, Seagraves has
been harshly critical ofWhite in.inter-
views with the Jacksonville media.
White wouldn't comment
Thursday on Seagraves' announce-
ment. He also declined to comment on
the rift between his ~office and the
sheriff, or the causes behind it.
"When you're a prosecutor with
the state of Florida, you've got to take
not the high road but the highest
road," he said.

The Circle of Friends, a
through the Council on
Aging of Nassau, was found-
ed in 2005 by Denise Saxton
in honor of her mother, Doris'
Daniell, to meet these needs
with Friendly Visitors. Now,
many seniors living in
Nassau County (in their own
homes or in assisted living
facilities) have a special
Friendly Visitor who sees
them on a regular basis.
These Circle of Friends vol-
unteers feel especially
rewarded, as they can clearly
see how much their visits

Many Friendly Visitor vol-
unteers have stated that they
enjoy the visits so much they
would be hard pressed to
determine who actually bene-
fits more from their visits -
the elderly person or thers-
selves. Currently these volun-
teer Friendly Visitors have
been matched with more
than 30 seniors.
Augusta Sommers said of
her Friendly Visitor, "Ruth
Reader is a loyal and gracious
friend. I was lucky enough to
have had her start visiting
me two years ago at
Savannah Grand. She visits
me regularly and provides
me writh delightful and ilitspir-
ing stories and books. She
does this despite her own
health problems and I arn
privileged to call her 'friend."'
Through these visits, and
other more intensive "home
fix-it" calls (where Circle of

forces with another group of
volunteers, led by Roland

Perhaps one of the most important aspects
of brain plasticity research involves thinking
(self-talk). Thinking is the mind's constant
stream of internal input to the brain. Positive or
negative thoughts that repeat themselves
strengthen certain pathways and form atti-
tudes. That's why some people with habitual
negative attitudes stub their toe and react as if
life is over, while others stiffer major burdens
with optimism and hope.
Brain researchers are telling us that we
mentally become what we think and do, just as
we physically become what we consume. Since
our wiring relies on the richness or poverty of
our thoughts we hold the power to manage
that input. For example, it's too early to under-
stand the impact that digital technology will
have on our brains. There is some concern that
our fascination with digital media may be
rewiring youthful brains in unpredictable ways,
limiting vocabularies and reducing attention .
Most important in these findings is the
knowledge that our brains constantly rewire
themselves through something as ordinary as
an ongoing stream of thought and behavior.
This should persuade us to be much more
careful and vigilant regarding our input.
Studies from Dr. Doidge and others indicate
that everything we (and our children) see,
hear, think and do can alter our brains in
significant and unexpected ways. The good
news is that we have a choice in these matters.
We can take control by taking command of the
input entering our minds and rewiring our

DIN K NE SMITH I
I was happy to read the view-
point article from the Amelia Island-
Fernandina Restoration Foundation,
Inc., (Sept. 22) about how we need
to shape our downtown area by fol-
lowing the recommendations of Ed
McMahon, a land use specialist.
Having a clear vision of what we
want in our community will result in
economic prosperity. hope his rec-
ommendations do not fall on deaf
I was disappointed that the bul-
let points in the article did not
mention Ed McMahon's recom-
mendations that "downtown needs
to be activated" and we needd to

have housing that appeals to

It seems to me that what pr-etty
much sums up "The Tea Party" is
that it is a grassroots movement.

involved in their local and national
politics through education of our

that challenge the sovereignty of
I would like to respond to the
front-page article on Sept. I regard-

school board if they could give a
patriotic presentation to Nassau
County students about the U.S.
Constitution and founding docu-
To me it is appalling that the Tea
Par'ty was not allowed to give a pres-
entation based on the reasons they
gave for refusing.
1. Did any one of the membe-s
or Superintendent John Ruis ask to
see what the presentation consisted
of or ask to view the 27-slide
PowerPoint? Evidently not.
2. I do not know school board l
member Gail Cook but it is
appalling that without knowing the
contents she assumes the children's
eyes would be glassing over Excuse
me, how many hours can a childl sit
in front of the TV? My.exper-ience
tells me many hours.
3. Chair Muriel Creamer said
she "had seen thle presentation
that (Clerk of Court) John Crawfo~d
had given and that it's definitely
not for elementar-y." In the article
Steve Ecklund said John Cr~awford
and Aaron Bean had "volunteered"
to speak to students. If Mur~iel did-
n't want John Cr-awford or- Aaron
Bean to speak, did she suggest that
perhaps only Steve Ecklund and/or
Larry Murray would do the pr-es-
4. The most outrageous state-
ment came from school board l
employee SharylWood. She said, "I
don't believe Nassau county stu-
dents have been getting just
an aver-age civics education, Nassau
County has always taught civics at
the middle school level, even when
the state didn't require it..." If stu-

was aware of it, they are not get-

I stink at math. Through mercifully

ther- will your Father forgive your
trespasses." (M/atthew 6:14-15)
This straightforward verse only
confir-ms what I experienced that
day. My ability to forgive others was
directly related to the forgiveness I
'At any r-ate 1, like most of you,
have had plenty of opportunities to
get offended and to hold people in
un-forgiveness. In like fashion I, like
most of you, have received a ton of
God's for-giveness. After taking an
inventor-y of my account with God, I
have decided to freely give as I have
freely received. In this way, God's
grace keeps flowing both to me and
through me. The end result has
been extremely liberating.
Robert L. Goyette is pastor of .
Living Wat~ers World Outreach Center
you don't have it, it's totally OK to
tell them you don't have it; in
essence, you can't give what you
don't have. If, on the other hand, I
give you $10 and they someone ask
you for $10, it's a lie if you tell them
you don't have it. All I'm asking you
to do Rob is to give to them what
I've given to you." .
Though in principle I had known
that for years, that day God's words
to me clicked.
From then on every time that
particular person showed up in my
mind waiving the offense, instead of
straining to produce forgiveness for
them oil my own, I simply remem-
bered all the times God had forgiven
me. It was amazing to see how rich
in forgiveness I really was.,Once I
began to give the person that which
God had given me, the offense left
and I was fr-ee.
Interesting, isn't it? For years I
had walked in a measure of forgive-
ness toward others, but never before
had I been so deeply challenged.
For the longest time I had thought I
understood how forgiveness
worked, but now, through a horrible
set of circumstances, I had experi-
enced forgiveness at a completely
new level. For that, I am forever
As is always the case, things that
produce-real and lasting results
always have their origin in God -
Himself. When it comes to for~give-
ness, no one knows how it wor-ks
better than Jesus. Here are His
words: "For if you forgive men their
trespasses, your heavenly F~ather
will also forgive you: But if you for-
give not men their trespasses, nel-
usual, they always showed
up at the most inopportune
of times. I suppose the fact
that it was in my mind that they
showed up was more my issue than
theirs but, in either case, making
them leave seemed impossible.
OK, sb here's the tr~uth. I was
having a difficult time forgiving
someone. I know as a pastor you're
suppose to have it all together, but
let me just be real with you. I was
struggling. Though it was many
year's ago, the feeling of being stuck
in un-forgiveness was one of the
most horrible feelings I've'ever had.
It seemed that every time I would
try to forget the past and move on,
somehow, there in my mind, that
person would appear without invi-
tation often invading holy
moments of prayer
with God. I'll never
forget the day that

A rule change his eighth-grade year side-

enough, he was benched to keep Yulee from
running up the score on opponents..
"I wanted to have a big year that year, but i
guess they changed up the ruling," Henry said.
"After that I made sure I didn't hold anything
back when I get on that field. Just go. Try to get
whatever I can. Score, run for yards."
No rules are holding him back now. In just
two games so far this season, Henry, a 6-foot-2,
220-pound sophomore at Yulee High School,
has 647 yards and 10 touchdowns.
"Most of the offensive linemen are seniors so
they wanted to make a big impact and they are
doing that," Henry said. "The last two games
have been unbelievable. I just thank- them so
much. My receivers are working hard, throwing
their blocking, making sure I'm having the game

"I think we've got the team this year to com-
pete with them and probably win," Henry said.
"That's our main goal, to beat Bolles and go to
state. That would be a big accomplishment for
this program, to show we're ready to play."
Henry's a true sophomore and has two more
seasons to look forward to at Yulee.
"It's a good thing that l'm sophomore," Henry
said.'They think it's unbelievable how big l am.
It's good motivation."
Henry picked up the football when he was
"I fell in love with it and I've been playing it
ever since," said Henry.
Henry may also be inspiring his own little

"Car-oline Garner had great serves in the
second set," said Shannon Strumlauf, head vol-
leyballcoach at Fernandina Beach High School.
"She had a total of 19 served points and nine
aces. She also had 37 assists on the evening, a
nice double-double stat wise."
Savannah Young had 12 kills for the FBHS

Thle FBHS Lady Pir-ates fell to Providence 26-

"The girls played har~d and we battled back
and forth," Str-umlauf said. "It came down to
mistakes,' missed serves and passing. Provi-
dence plays good defense as well and we didn't
take advantage of opportunities they gave us
when we should of put the ball away. When we
lack passing, olur offense is definitely affected.
We didn't have as many kills as we have in our
Whitfield had eight kills, Young had seven
kills and Emmalee Bales had sixt. Gar-ner had 25
assists. Young led the team with six digs.
"Providence will be our last r~egular game of

evaluation of our-selves andi our improvements
over the next month before heading into dis-
