Paid parking at beaches?

A few dozen residents showed up
to protest the issue of paid parking at
a special meeting at City Hall on
Monday, but that did not stop city
commissioners from going ahead with
further analysis of the concept.
Fernandina Beach Police ChiefJim
Hurley presented a study his staff had
.done on paid parking in the city that
showed kiosks at Main Beach, North
:Beach, Seaside Park, Sadler Road, the
beach accesses and the marina could
bring in a net revenue of up to
$400,000 with .a 57 percent parking
spact occupancy rate.
Initial purchase of eight kiosks was
estimated at $90,000, and the total
annual operating cost at $36,000.
Revenues 'from parking citations

would amount to about $5,000 annu-
ally. Hurley said a total of 556 spaces
were being considered for paid park-
ing using a kiosk system..
Hurley also suggested a $15 annu-
al parking fee for residents, but com-
missioners conceded in the end that it
would be best not to charge local res-
idents at all.
Calling it an "experimental oppor-
tunity," Hurley said commissioners
would also have to decide whether to
enforce paid parking seven days a
week, and the hours of enforcement.
He suggested 8 a.m. to .8 p.m., from
April to October. Whether county res-
idents would pay was not discussed.

"These are just some ideas that

she would like to get more information
on similar cities that implemented paid
parking for the first time, and what
the results were. "Just because we're
talking about it doesn't mean we want
nasty, evil things for the city," she said.

"I was walking on the beach and noticed dozens of small, turquoise, round 'blobs' scattered along the low tide line. I took some close-up
.photos, which turned out to be quite spectacular," reported local resident Susan Gallion. News-Leader columnist Pat Foster-Turley identi-
fled the "Blue Button" (Porpita porpita), which are small colonies of cooperative polyps perhaps as much as an inch across that live
on the surface of the sea. Mass beachings occur since they are at the mercy of wind and water currents. The animal colony's jellyfish-like
sting may cause irritation if it comes in contact with human skin.


sex with


7 years

A former Fernandina Beach High
School teacher was sentenced to seven
years in prison Thursday and must reg-
ister as a sexual offender after pleading
guilty to a charge of unlawful sex with
a minor stemming from a relationship
with a student that began when she
was around 15.
"You were a teacher, a friend and a
mentor, but now all I see is pure evil;'
the victim's mother
read in a statement
to the court. "You
tried to destroy the
most important thing : .j:
in my life.... Because
of you, we will never
be the same, but you .
will be behind bars."
Those words Turner
were directed toward
Stephen Brian
Turner, 44, the former FBHS journal-
ism teacher and newspaper and year-
book advisor who on Thursday was led
into Courtroom A inside the Nassau
County Judicial Annex in a red jumpsuit
and shackles to accept the negotiated
plea agreement with the State
Attorney's Office.
Turner faced a maximum sentence
of 15 years for unlawful sex with a
minor, but if it was up to Circuit Court
Judge Robert Foster, who presided
over the hearing, Turner would "never
see the light of day."
"I don't particularly like doing this,
Mr. Turner," Foster said in open court.
"I think you're getting off way too easy.
Your conduct was disgraceful and inex-
cusable. ... Though I am tempted to
reject the plea and order a trial, I rec-
ognize that would be a great disservice
to the victim and her mother. Before
you go off to prison, I wish I had the
ability to stick you in a stockade at your
(former) high school so the students
and teachers could walk by and see."
Turner was arrested Oct. 29 in
Jacksonville on a Nassau County war-
rant citing charges of unlawful sexual
activity with a minor, child abuse, con-
tributing to the delinquency of a minor,
providing alcohol to a person under 21

forRelay forLife chair

Yulee High School students Destiny Register, left, and Jasmine
Reece listen as Relay for life chair Alice Nolan explains the event
scheduled Saturday and Sunday at the YHS stadium.

Yulee resident Alice Nolan is the
local chair for the American Cancer
Society's Relay for Life.
"I work at the Plantation and Iwas
asked to join their team one year and
after that, I was sold," she said.
Nolan, who lost her dad, a sister-in-
law and many friends to the disease,
is enthusiastic in her support of the
American Cancer Society because she
says it's one of the few charities that
is 95 percent volunteer-driven and the
money goes where it needs to go -
into patient services and research that
help your own community.
"I think it's important because can-
cer touches all of us. There's not one
person who hasn't been touched in
one shape or form. If we can touch
one life or save one life, that's a bless-
Nolan related a recent incident
that happened when Relay for Life
had a table at the Yulee Middle School
open house.
"One of the people who came up to
the table was just jumping up and
down, so happy because she just got
the thumbs up from her doctor that
she's cancer free. So it was great to
hear from a survivor and she told us,

State Attorney rebuffs

sheriff's complaints

Nassau County Sheriff's officers
may not take parts from seized vehicles
for use on their personal vehicles, State
Attorney Angela Corey said. She
defended Assistant State Attorney Wes
White, involved in an increasingly pub-
lic feud with SheriffTommy Seagraves,
including the sheriff's complaint about
White's probe of a deputy's use of tires
and rims off a seized vehicle.
Seagraves has publicly aired griev-
ances and concerns regarding the apti-
tude of White, director of the Nassau
County State Attorney's Office, to
Jacksonville media in recent weeks.
White and Corey have remained rela-
tively quiet on the subject.
Neither Corey nor White would
speak directly about previous or ongo-
ing i,, ,-li .: liiii,, by the State
Attorney's Office, but Corey ques-
tioned Seagraves' .,lli Ltii- that
White's investigative tactics were
unprofessional or meant to "terrorize"
"There should never be an issue
with my prosecutors looking into mat-
ters," Corey said. "We do joint investi-
gations with law enforcement agen-
cies all the time. That should not be a
cause for alarm."
Corey said While was merely "try-
ing to get more information to see if the

repeated phone

Charles Corbett was among
the residents who questioned
the city's paid parking propos-
al during a special meeting
Monday, asking whether
beachfront businesses such as
the Putt-Putt course, Sandy
Bottoms or Sliders Seaside Grill
had been considered.
"I'd like to ask commission-
ers if they'd like the keys to my
business," added Claude
Hartley, owner of Sandy

ness had been "a nightmare"
ever since he opened it, Hartley
said paid parking for his cus-

porting the plan was "absolute-
ly fraudulent."
"I think you can tell I'm not
happy," Last said.
Julie Ferreira said one of
the reasons residents pay taxes
is for beach access. "We all
understand there's economic

plea agreement, the State
Attorney's Office will not pros-
ecute him on the additional
Turner was suspended
without pay by the Nassau
County School District in early
October 2009 while an internal
investigation was conducted.'
According to authorities,
the case was originally report-
ed to the state Department of
Children and Families. The
victim told authorities at the
time she and Turner had been
involved in a relationship for
two years and that a sexual
relationship developed more
than a year prior to the report,
according to the sheriff's
office. During that time,
Turner allegedly bought the
victim a cell phone, jewelry
and was in the process of buy-
ing her a ring.
Turner is to serve three
years of sex offender proba-
tion, followed by two years of
probation upon his release
from prison. But a sticking
point for the mother of the vic-
tim was Turner was not order-
ed to wear an ankle monitor.
"I'm afraid when he gets
out, he will try to find my
daughter," she said. "I'm very
concerned" that he will not be
wearing ankle monitor.
After being warned by
Foster that he would serve an
additional eight years in prison
should he commit a probation
violation upon release includ-
ing making contact with the

victim.-Turner said he had
"no plans to contact her."
Beyond that, the former
teacher said nothing.
The mother said her
daughter has been in inten-
sive psychotherapy at a cost
of $200 a week, an especially
large burden since she lost
her job and has no insurance.
As part of Turner's sentence,
he was ordered to foot the bill
for the treatment.
He is also now permanent-
ly designated as a sexual
offender, forbidden from unsu-
pervised contact with minors
and must pay court costs and
fees. He was given credit for
309 days served in the Nassau
County Jail,
After nearly a year of strug-
gling with the aftermath of her
daughter and Turner's rela-
tionship and additional family
hardships not directly related
to the case, the mother mused
that she finally might be able
to begin the healing process.
"I have been housebound
since January and having trou-
ble functioning, but after today,
I think I might feel better" she
said following the hearing.
"This is a victory for my fami
ly, but I want itto be a wake-up
call for the school system."
Additionally, she said she
would do whatever she could
to prevent similar incidents
between teachers and minors
from happening in the future.
"I plan to go to the (state)
capital and work to get a law
passed so all teachers are scru-
tinized in away that no teacher
can get away with something
like this," she said.

trol in reimbursements.
'.We zero in on their present
personnel policy, using it as a
basis for why we've got to get
this right why we have to have
adequate training and over-
sight," he said.
"Current expense report
procedures are inadequate for
safeguarding assets and pro-
viding accountability for out of
town travel," the Sept. 27 report
stated. "Inconsistencies exist in
documenting and submitting
travel expense vouchers. In
addition, the Nassau County
(Commission's) Personnel
Policies and Procedures man-
ual has not been revised as a
complete document since 1996."
The report-recommended
that county employees be held
accountable for the content of
their expense reports. It further
recommended that-training on
how-to correctly fill out the
reports.should be done annu-
ally, and that travel "should not
occur unless the purpose is
directly connected and- benefi--
cial to that..errployee's per-
formance of his/her job duties."
The report also suggested
using Internet sites such as
Mapquest to validate mileage
claims and updating the coun-
ty's personnel and procedures

the findings. He also said it

The letter reportedly ques-
tioned White's "professional-
ism" in his criminal inquiry into
Deputy Don Hyatt Jr., who
allegedly exchanged tires and
rims from a forfeited truck with
those on his personal vehicle,
apparently with the approval of
Capt. Johnnie Hall, a vehicle
maintenance supervisor at the
sheriff's office. Seagraves said
he was handling the investiga-
tion internally, and that he had

Attorney Dan McCarthy of the

from the truck seized in
March through court forfei-
ture proceedings against
Tyrone Jenkins, who is serving
a four-year prison sentence on

because Hyatt liked the design,
Seagraves told the Times-
Union. He said Hyatt put his
own newer rims and tires on
the seized vehicle to improve
"the appearance and value of
the truck, which was likely to
be used as an undercover vehi-
cle by narcotics detectives."
Seagraves said he ordered
the tires and rims to be

Jelt Hyatt or Hall intended to

However, Corey told the
News-Leader there are strict
rules and statutes for confis-
cation and forfeiture of a per-
son's property, and once those
legal channels are sought and
procedure has been followed,
there are even more specific
procedures to follow.

agency) holds the property
until it is made available for

thing we can do is use those
instead of buying new ones to
save taxpayers money. I have'
never seen anywhere that for-
feited items could be given
away, unless it's to a charitable
organization. I'm pretty sure a
vehicle could be used as an
undercover vehicle, but only if
it would ultimately not inure to
that person's personal benefit."
She also said early last week
that she has not seen any files
relating to Seagraves' internal
investigation of the tires and
rims incident.
"(We have received) no file
for our review with reports yet,
but we will be seeking that
information," she said.
There was speculation in
the community and by media
that former Undersheriff Col.
Mike Edwards resigned Sept.
3 over Seagraves' handling of
the rims switch, but he has
declined to comment publicly.
Seagraves has maintained that
Edwards quit by phone after
just three months on the job -
because the workload was
more than he bargained for
compared to his post with the
Florida Wildlife Commission,
from which he had retired after
more than 30 years in law
The sheriff's recent com-
plaints about White to
Jacksonville media have
revolved around the attorney's
"accusatory" tone in the
investigation. For example,
Seagraves reportedly said in
the letter to Corey that White
visited Hyatt's father, Pastor
Don Hyatt Sr. of First Baptist
Church in Callahan, and told
him "his son needed to be the
first to gel on the bus or the bus
was going to leave him
behind." He also complained
that White attempted, unsuc-
cessfully, to meet with
White would not comment
on the case, whether he was
ordered to conduct an investi-
gation, took it upon himself or
if an outside agency such as
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement should take the

lead, as it has in the probe of
the Sept. 11 fatal shooting of
Callahan motorcyclist Franklin
"Ray" Bodden by Nassau
Deputy Ernie Cole.
But White did say the per-
ceived rift between himself and
the sheriff has done little to
change operations in his office.
"We're conducting business
here at the State Attorney's
Office properly, successfully
and without the slightest hic-
cup," White said.
Asked about his dealings
with the agency, Fernandina
Beach Police Chief Jim Hurley
had only praise. "I have every
faith and confidence in the
State Attorney's Office," he
said. "Both Ms. Corey and Mr.
White have been efficient, pro-
fessional and easy to work
Hurley also supplied two let-
ters he wrote to Corey, specif-
ically thanking her office and
commending White and his
staff for their cooperative han-
dling of cases, both on-scene
and in the courtroom.
Corey echoed her support
for White in the face of
Seagraves' criticism as well.
"(White) took office in
January 2009 and since that
time (Seagraves) has brought
numerous complaints to my
Attentionn" she said. "I've only
had to correct two things. In
speaking with people in the
community, courtrooms, Judge
(Robert) Foster and the Public
Defender's Office, I have no
concerns about Mr. White at
this time."
Seagraves has complained
to Jacksonville media that
White wears shirts embla-
zoned with Law Enforcement
Officer at crime scenes, that
he carries a gun on his hip and
walks with the swagger (and
the hat) of a cowboy.
His frustration led
Seagraves to announce last
week that he would not seek
reelection when his term ends
in January 2013 because "poli-
tics" has made it impossible to
do his job.

Tips o0
Modern vehicles are shrink-
ing, while wheels and tires
seem to all be getting bigger. A
15-inch tire used to be consid-
ered full-sized. Now, 16-, 17-,
18- and 20-inch tires dominate
the automotive landscape.
While technology and efficien-
cies have made many products
more affordable, tires haven't
caught that wave. Big tires have
big pricetags. Realizing tires
are like shoes you have to
buy them it seemed like a
good topic to explore. Not pro-
fessing to be a tire expert, I
went surfing for relevant data to
make the process easier.
A little background on tires
- they generally have between
19 to 25 components. They are
built from the inside out, start-
ing with an inner liner, referred
to as the heart of (he lire. This
is followed by fabric belts, steel
belts arid, ultimately, the tread.
The sidewall varies in height
with the type of vehicle. Higher
sidewalls create smoother rides
in passenger cars and some
truck (pickup, SUV, van) prod-
ucts. The lower sidewalls are
primarily for sports cars or
sport versions of other prold-
ucts, creating'enhanced han-
Choosing the appropriate
tire for your vehicle is the key.
The most common mistake is
choosing the wrong size or type
tire. The iiigge .-Ii... is to go
with the original equipment size
and type, if possible. An owner's
manual or tire sales rep can
identify what is factory recom-
From there, you see a des-
ignation like P195/60/R/16 63-
H and it looks like Greek to
you. To clarify the P is for
passenger tire. You will see the
P or LT for light truck tire.

Some buyers
go with less
expensive P
tires when an
1:l" tire is
for towing or
.V"' heavier use.
S The 195 is
the width in
REFFER'S millimeters.
CORNER The 60 is the
ratio of the
sidewall to
Rick Keffer the width.
The R is radi-
al. The 16 is the rim diameter.
The 63 is the load rating and
the H is the speed rating.
Find out what size dimen-
sions are right for your vehicle
and driving characteristics. The
speed rating 1 learned more
about preparing this. It can be
speed-rated from 99 to 186
mph. The most common are T-
118mph and H-130mph. Why
go for these ratings when we
don't drive this fast? Because
higher speed-rated tires dissi-
pate heat and prevent heat
build-up. Here in Florida and

travelers, a higher speed rat-
ing is a plus. We have all ridden
by the car upside down after a
tire blowout on the interstate.
Little choices can yield big ben-
There are fou r or five tread
patterns to consider. They go
from dry to wet weather, snow,
off road or all-weather. Make
sure to not overlook what type
of tire tread you are;.- IIllic.
The most common mistake is
for people to over-buy ires. Be
careful not to go too big on
wheels and tires when allempt-
ing to customize your vehicle. It
throws the spleedonmeter and
other systems off in your vehi-
cle. There are run-flat tires and
new designs such as a wheel"
and tire that are attached to
each other t hat are available or
coming in the future. Ilet them
gain mass acceptance and
prove themselves over time.
The run-flat option is gaining
steam and been around a while.
Other technologies are newer.
Once you have a nice set of
new i;i ,-. .-. your vehicle, main-
tain them. Keep an air gauge
in your car and check pressure

at least once a month and defi-
nitely before a trip. Traveling
with passengers and luggage
puts a load on your tires while
at high speed. Make sure they
are fully inflated. Rotate your
tires around every 7,500 miles
or at least twice a year. Tire
pressure and rotation issues
are the main culprits in a pre-
timature trip to buy tires.
When it comes to buying
tires, check with your regular
service outlet first. The person
looking after you and your vehi-
cles would appreciate the busi-
ness and it enhances your rela-
tionship'. There are a lot of ads
with bait out there. Get a quote
on the correct tires for your car
including mounting and bal-
ancing and tax. Tires are com-
petitive and many shops will
handle it with minimal mark-
up for their regular customers.
I hope there is something help-
ful in these thoughts.

Holloway responds
The surprise announcement
by Commissioner-elect Steve
Kelley to endorse independent

proved our

to A-plus and
have reduced

result of good Republican prin-
My opponent, by his own
admission, in his chamber of
commerce candidate question-
naire, has not reviewed the
county budget. Spicer does not
attend the county commission
meetings on a regular basis. If
he is unprepared and unin-
formed as a candidate, then how
could we honestly expect him to
be any more prepared as a com-
My plan to move forward
will help improve small busi-
nesses, lower property taxes
and reduce county spending.
While Nassau County leads the
region in reducing the size of
government we must work hard
to do more, and I pledge to do
just that.

Nassau County Commissioner-elect Steve Kelley, left, and commission candidate
George Spicer talk to Nasrau Patriots Tea Party member Michele Kling outside the
courthouse in Fernandina Beach after Kelley endorsed Spicer.

This election is aboul who
has the right' experience anad
the right values to lead Nassau
County forward over the next
four years. I am focused on cre-
ating jobs in the private sector
and ensuring we hold the line
on property taxes. What work-

right now is someone who will
fight for them and not the gov-
ernment. I am committed to
making sure their voices are

heard everyday.

This past Saturday I had the
privilege to play in the annual

in Nassau County programs.
The event was held at the pres-

where conditions would rival
any course in Florida. The com-

for every team and an excep-

Sentres of safety
In April of this year, your
humble chaplain suffered a
massive stroke while directing
traffic for the Special Olympics
torch parade. Three agencies
combined efforts to save my
life and three individuals were
instrumental in the process. I do
so appreciate all who were
involved and followed the lead-
ership of Ken Loper of the
Police Auxiliary, Captain Olin

"Hotshot" Carter of Fire Rescue
and Shift Commander Tina
Smith of the Police Department
Smith is a former EMTand it is
through the grace of our maker
she was in charge. I was flown
to the trauma center at Shands
and doses of the almost magical
clot buster drug Tissue Plas-
minogen Activator were admin-
istered. This drug called TPA is
only effective within a narrow
time window. Through the
efforts of our rescue teams I
arrived soon enough and, fol-
lowing several days in a coma-
tose state, I awoke after therapy
and carotid artery surgery. I
am here to continue serving
you today. Thank you for pro-
viding these sentries of safety.
They did not and do not serve
in vain.

Don't move
I've lived in the historic area
for over 10 years. That may not
seem long to many of you but
it's long enough to learn that
the voice of the people is often
heard but not heeded. Never-
theless, I feel compelled to
express my disappointment
with those who wish to move
the city boat ramp.
That ramp represents part
of the old charm that tourists
enjoy when they visit Fernan-
dina. We shouldn't make the
same mistake as other historic
cities have done by "upgrading"
the area to "appeal" to tourists.
Many of us who have moved
here were tourists at one time
and we moved here for the
charm and convenience of hav-
ing things close by like the old
Bank of America "was once."
That boat ramp is in a good loca-
tion for boaters too because it's
close to a lot of fishermen's
houses and close to a lot of good
fishing holes. Furthermore, it's
easy to launch there at any time
because the current is reduced
by the boat slips. Finally, how
about spending the money on
the old sewer pipes that lurk
beneath our streets?

prayers. We will be doing some
fundraising events to help her

family with expenses such as
gas to go to and from home and
foods while Penny is in the hos-
Her problems started about
two years ago when her liver
died and she got very sick. She
was lucky enough to get a liver
(but) her body rejected it after
nine days. She almost died
again. At the final hour, another
liver became available. She got
lucky again. She was doing
much better. For about a year
she did pretty good and things
were really goiig great. Well,
to make a long story short, she
is back in Mayo Clinic and is in
need of another liver. But this
time it's worse. She also needs
a kidney from all the infections.
She has been through three
hernia surgeries. All this start-
ed about three weeks ago when
she was to have the second her-
nia repair. Then the fevers start-
ed and it's gone downhill since.
Her husband Dale has serv-
ed in the military He was one of
only a few who came back alive.
He was in the Beirut, Lebanon
campaign in October 1983.
They have a son who is in
the military and has already
been to Afghanistan once and is
having to go back later this year.
He is stationed in California.
They have two daughters and
one lives close enough to help
with her care. We have all spent
many hours with her because
she is not strong enough to
even call the nurse at times. Her
other daughter lives in Alabama
and does not get here very
much. Dale has been 100 per-
cent disabled for many years
and Penny has been disabled
for about 10 years because of
deteriorating arthritis in her
back. This lady is only 48 years
old and we need your help.
We just don't know how
much more her body will take
and there has been no idea
when she might get well
enough to go home. If the
unthinkable were to happen,
they have no burial insurance.
Dale gave for his county. His
son is also now giving. I'm hop-
ing his country, his community,
friends and family, and anyone
else that can spare a few dol-
lars will understand how much
of whatever you might give will
be appreciated. We have an

Angel Flight, taking a hero home

My cousin's helicopter was shot
down over Vietnam in 1970.
Fortunately, he escaped wounded.
Many other members of his
squadron, U.S. Navy Helicopter Attack
(Light)3 Seawolves, clidn't fare as well. A lot of
them came home in fag-draped coffins. Soime
are still considered MIA.
The squadron is having a reunion in
Charleston this November. My cousin called
me a couple of weeks ago and asked me if I
would help him with a special project. A num-
ber of the Seawolves are going to be inducted
into the Enlisted Combat Aircrew Roll of
Honor during a special ceremony aboard the
USS Yorktown during the reunion. Barry, my
cousin, asked my help in locating any surviv-
ing family members of some of his fallen com-
rades so they can be invited to attend and be
presented with their loved one's plaque. 1 told
him I'd be honored and he sent me a list of
seven names, dates of birth, hometowns and
the last stands of comrades who paid the ulti-
mate price.
Spending long hours during evenings and
weekends at my computer here il my den, I've
managed to literally Google my way to success
wilh nearly all of them. It's really not that hard
to do if you know how to do intensive research
and don't mind calling total strangers on the
telephone. The prospect of literally bringing
these fallen soldiers home again in a different
sort of way has been immensely gratifying and
humbling. It also helps soothe a raw place
within me that yearns to say a proper and final

^. o 'goodbye to another victim of
that war who was briefly in
my care so long ago. Maybe
.A one day I can remember his
name and then I'll get to pay
my own special visit to The
Wall. I've already composed,
S-: in my heart, the letter I'll
I ?' ..-:^ leave there.
A few nights ago I was
CUPOF here at my computer, burn-
JOE ing the midnight oil and try-
ing to get h lead on family
members of one of the last
Joe Palmer couple of names on my list,
when Igot an e-mail from a lady in another
slate who'd given me guidance and assistance
looking for another family there. She thanked
me for the work I'm helping my cousin do and
attached a YouTube clip called "Angel Flight."
After I got done watching it, I dried my eyes
and forwarded it to Barry.
Sung by country musician Radney Foster
and rock musician Darius Rucker in a soul-tug-
ging duet, Angel Flight is about the very spe-
cial National Guard flights that bring home
their fallen brethren from the battlefields
abroad. Just the refrain is enough to make you
shiver: "Well I fly that plane called the Angel
Flight. Come on, brother, you're with me
tonight. Between heaven and Earth, you're
never alone. On the Angel Flight, come on
brother I'm taking you home."
This is a side of the military most people
don't ever really notice unless they lose a

loved one in combat. The care and honor of
the fallen ones is a task the armed forces hold
near sacred. Sometimes it takes the ear-shat-
tering form of a phalanx of U.S. Marines in for-
mal dress uniform firing a final salute over a
casket. Sometimes it's the lonely, mournful
Taps played by a Navy bugler hidden in a
copse of trees somewhere in the cemetery.
Sometimes, it's the white-gloved hands of an
Air Force Honor Guard folding-the flag and
presenting it to a crying widow at graveside.
It's the Army's tst battalion 3rd Infantry
Regiment, better known as The Old Guard,
which provides ceremonial honor guards for
the funerals of fallen Army soldiers and silent-
ly guards the Tomb of.the Unknown Soldiers
in Arlington National Cemetery.
But before the fallen ones get to those final
resting places in Arlington or their hometown
cemeteries, they all make that last journey on
their own Angel Flights.
"Well 1 fly that plane called the Angel
Flight. Got a hero riding with us tonight.
Between heaven and Earth, you're never
alone. On the Angel Flight, come on brother
I'm taking you home."
Every night, I sit down at my computer and
put the lamp on low and close the door and
watch the Angel Flight video clip the lady sent
me. You see, one of the guys on the list Barry
sent me is listed as MIA. If ever his remains
are found, there's an Angel Flight somewhere
waiting to bring him home. I hope I can find
his family.


Florida election races are warming up

A s usual, the races in
Florida, especially for gov-
ernor and senator, are
interesting. A recent poll
shows that Alex Sink, the
Democratic nominee for governor, is
ahead of Rick Scott, the Republican
nominee, by seven points, 47 to 40,
with 11 percent undecided (other
minor candidates get 2 percent of
the vote). Sink has had a lead since
the primaries were over, and it's get-
ting to be nervous time for the Scott
Early voting will start Oct. 18.
When early voting started in the
Republican governor primary Scott
was 11 points up on Attorney
General Bill McCollum. McCollum
eventually caught up and had a 4-5
percent lead in the polls on Election,
Day, but it was too late. Forty-six
percent of the electors had voted
.early when Scott.had a big lead.
'" Tht'eecentpolls show that the
scars resulting from the
Scott/McCollum Republican pri-
mary race run deep and are not
healed. In a recent fundraiser for
Sink in Central Florida, some life-
long Republican heavyweights were
there supporting Sink. Scott is going
to have to unleash his attack dogs
on the airwaves and try to scare
Republican voters about Sink. That
is a difficult process, especially late
in the game,.but with unlimited
money is certainly doable. The sta-
tistic that Scott has to change is to
increase his percent of Republican
support, which is now 75 percent;
however, 85 percent is needed to
The three-way race for the U.S.

side of the oil spill
issue and was
I a able to ride that
Issue for some
time. Pictures of
.,him walking on
Sthe beach in his
Frey bare feet staring
__ at the oil spill
played well. He
also was able to use his veto power
in Tallahassee to attract some vot-
ers, especially because of his posi-
.tion on abortion. However, there
have been no new issues to draw .
voter support. His opponents are
running ads in Florida on his flip-
flops on issues and even timing how
long it takes him to announce a posi-
tion and then change it. Crist's cam-
paign is floundering and Marco
Rubio is pulling ahead.
Rubio has some problems
involving legislative projects, which
could blossom and hurt his cam-
paign. However the election is
Rubio's to lose and if he sticks to
message and hasn't given the oppo-
sition something to jump on he
should win.
The Democrats in Washington
are facing a dilemma in this race.
Their candidate, Congressman
Kendrick Meek, according to nearly
all the polls, has no chance of win-
ning. Their "other" candidate Crist's
only chance of winning is if Meek
runs poorly, as Crist needs
Democratic votes that he is not
presently getting. What will the
Democratic senatorial committee
do? If they fund Meek and he holds
his base they have insured that Crist

Bicyclist not a target

've been yelled at, spit at,
cursed at, had bottles
thrown at me and even
had my sexuality ques-
tioned. You'd think that I'm a
bad guy but I'm not. I'm just
a bicyclist.
In the state of Florida, a
bicycle is considered a vehi-
cle and has just as many
rights to the road as a car or
truck (See 316.2065, Florida
Statutes). However, many
drivers are ignorant to this,
and I'm sick of people in this
city mistreating the local run-
ners and bikers because they
simply do not know any bet-
On roads without a bike
lane, a cyclist should ride at
least two feet from the road's
edge. A shoulder is not a
usable roadway for any vehi-
cle, so this law places the
biker two feet left of the white
line between the road and the
shoulder. The legal minimum
for a car to overtake a bicycle
is three feet. Unfortunately,
way too many bikers are get-
ting killed on the roadways':
because the laws are simply
not followed or drivers just

ones responsible for keeping
the roads safe, cyclists need
to contribute to this also. It
seems some bikers jump on
their bike and suddenly feel
like they own the streets. As
stated earlier, a bicycle is con-
sidered a vehicle and is there-
fore responsible for all the
street signs and lights that a
car is responsible for. Would
you blast through a stop sigi
in your car going 20 miles an
hour? I sure hope not. Why
would you do this on a bicy-
cle? By doing this not only do
you put your life in danger,
you make your fellow bikers
look bad too. We want to keel)
our rights to the road!
To summarize: Drivers
should allow three feet
between your vehicle and any
bicycles, and slow down if
you need to in order to legally
pass. Be aware of the rules of
the road. Cyclists should lose
the headphones while on the
road. Not only is it illegal,

wearing headphones pro-
hibits the awareness of know-
ing a vehicle is approaching.
Also, abide by all the laws on
the road just as you would in
your car, including signaling
for turns.
Finally, use a two-step
process for looking back for
cars. First, lake a quick look
to your side to check for a car
right behind you or next to
you. Second, look all the way
behind you.-This will keep
you from turning your head
and your bike at the same
time, drifting into an
approaching vehicle.
"Share the Road" is a
phrase that's catching on
nationwide but it still appears
one-sided. Nearly 1,000 peo-
ple are killed in the United
States in bicycle-rela.td acci-
dents every year. I'll certaill-
ly not ready to be the next
one killed for the sake of a
joke or game. By no means

Police appreciated
(n Thursday night, Sept. 16 my family
arrived at our beach home to find that someone
had broken into it and attempted to steal some
items. Not only did the Fernandina Beach
Police arrive in a quick manner, but they were
also very professional in the way they con-
ducted their investigation. It is not until some-
hlling like this happens that we realize how

important these guys are.
I would like to say a special "thank you" to
the officers who worked that night for making

feel safe. *

have a home in Fernandina because we know

Griffins celebrate 50th wedding anniversary

presence and His perfect
will to guide you, a future
bright before you and the
one you love beside you, a marriage that
(lod meant it to be.
When a couple gets married, they
say for better or worse. Today young
peope get married but can't weather the
str ms that come into their lives.
It is good when we see a couple that
stays together through sickness, health,
the thick as well as the thin.
A 50th anniversary celebration was
witnessed by many family members,
neighbors and friends last weekend at
First Baptist Church, downtown
Jacksonville, where Pastor Steve
A'. I, i nl..l o1 fficiated.
They met when she was 13 and he
was 15, got married, built a home, raised
a family and, through it all, after 50
years, celebrated with God's blessings.
To know the love of Christ which pas-
seth knowledge, that ye might be filled
with all the fullness of God.
Christ has to be the only thing
between a husband and wife. He is what
keeps them together. The husband or
wile may not have been perfect; but they
thanked God for allowing them to stand

by each other and to
keep the love alive in
Their marriage.
Love worketh no ill
S- to his neighbor, there-
i .fore it is the fulfilling of
ki.. the law, is what neigh-
bors said about this
family sharing their
love and letting others

love covereth all sins,

As they exchanged
their vows to each other, what was in
their hearts, we could hear and see that
there is no fear in love; perfect love
casteth out fear because fear hath tor-
ment, he that feareth is not made per-
fect in love.
Diane Mattis was the soloist. Good
words by their neighbors, the
Will. iP. I.is, family friends, Glory
Gresham, and the groom's brother and
sister-in-law, Milton and Minnie Griffin.
Letters from their granddaughters,
Miracle and Alexandria Caldwell, and

tears of joy from their daughter, Pansy
Griffin Caldwell, thanking God for the
love of her parents, and how He kept
them together, even through sickness,
when they thought her father wasn't
going to make it, through it all, God
brought him through.
Congratulations again to Mr. and
Mrs. Eddie (Linda) Griffin, married
Aug. 27, 1960. A ceremony filled with
love for God and from God to everyone.
Linda Griffin is the aunt of Rose Jones.
She is Rose's mother's sister and she
was very happy to have attended her
aunt's ceremony of re-marriage.
The family of the late Sis. Donna
Andrews Mitchell says thanks to their
many friends and family for all acts of
kindness shown to them during their
hours of bereavement. Many thanks to
Pastor Pugh and the many friends and
family members from her hometown to
Miami for the service.

Julie A. Shaffer has grad-
uated from the Army Reserve
Officer Training Corps
Leader's Training Course at
Fort Knox, Ky.
The four-week course is a
leadership internship for
cadets that can lead to the ulti-
mate goal of becoming an
Army officer. College stu-
dents experience and examine
the Army without incurring
an obligation to serve in the
Army or ROTC, and are eligi-
ble to receive two-year college
scholarship offers and attend
the Advanced ROTC Course
at their college.
Cadets are observed and
evaluated during classroom
and field training exercises to
determine their officer poten-
tial in leadership abilities and
skills. The cadets are trained
to have a sound understand-
ing of traditional leadership
values during the challenging
"hands-on" training.
The training develops well-
disciplined, highly motivated,
physically conditioned stu-
dents and helps improve the
cadets' self-confidence, ipitia-
tive, leadership potential, deci-
sion making and collective
team cohesion.
The cadets receive training
in fundamental military skills,
rifle marksmanship, small
arms tactics, weapons train-
ing, drill and ceremony, com-
munications, combat water
survival training, rappelling,
land navigation and squad-
level operations field training.

FRIDAY. October 1, 2010/News-Leader


Bobcats, panthers and magnifying the right stuff

Ring-ring. "Hello," my friend
answered his phone.
"Mr. Alvar6, it's me. I'm at the
school and there's a huge cat up-
here on the playground."
"OK," he said in an attempt to
calm the woman down. "What's the
"It's ah ... it's a bobcat or perhaps
a panther," the woman blurted out
as she fumbled over her words.
"Are you sure?" Mr. Alvar6 asked
in a slow and steady voice.
"Yes," she said emphatically.
"OK," he replied. "Stay clear and
stay out of the way and I'll call ani-
mal control."
"I really think we should call
911," the woman said. "I've heard
bobcats are known to attack people."
"OK," Mr. Alvar6 said. "Call them

and see what they
say." Thankfully, for
everyone involved,
the incident hap-
S opened after school
hours when no one
else was around.
By the time the
first person arrived
(the woman's hus-
PULPIT band), the cat had
NOTES settled down and
was resting on top
of a pile of railroad
Pastor cross-ties that had
Rob Goyette been brought in for
a landscaping proj-
ect. With the sun now set and flash-
light in hand, the husband slowly
made his way toward the cat, not.
quite sure what to expect. Then it

happened. There on top of the pile of
wood his spotlight landed on the
lone cat. As it stood and stretched,
as if just awaking from a long nap,
the husband was in shock at its size.
Not only was it smaller than he had
thought, but it wasn't a bobcat or a
Florida panther at all. It was a stray
house cat that wasn't even fully
As you might imagine, explaining
the whole thing to the police
officers and then to Mr. Alvar6 was
both a bit humbling as well as
comical. Thankfully the woman, who
had just received a new set of eye-
glasses, and therefore grossly over-
estimated the cat's size, was willing
to let me share the story in hopes
that something good might come
from it.

Interesting, isn't it, how some-
thing so small can appear so big
when the lens through which we are
looking is not what it's supposed to
be. Add to that a lack of adequate
light and there's no telling what you
might see.
I don't know about you, but I've
found that when I don't spend time
looking at life through the lens of
the Bible, everything becomes
grossly skewed in its size. Things
that aren't big deals somehow take
center stage, while the important
stuff goes lacking. That's why hav-
ing a biblical worldview is essential,
especially as darkness encroaches
upon the Earth.
If anything deserves magnifica-
tion in this hour, it is God Himself.
Magnified, that is, not in an exagger-

ation of what is true but to the con-
trary, so that we can see Him for
who He really is. The Bible says that
Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of
Judah. (Revelation 5:5) That's the
truth. Though the devil goes about
like a roaring lion seeking whom he
may devour, (1Peter 5:8) in the end,
he's nowhere near as big as he
would have us to believe. (Isa. 14:12-
I leave you with the wonderful
words of the Psalmist found in
Psalm 34:3-4: "O magnify the Lord
with me, and let us exalt His name
together. I sought the Lord, and He
heard me, and delivered me from all
my fears."

Wild Amelia 2011 launches mascot contest


For the News Leader
The Wild Amelia Nature
Festival 2011, to be held May
20-22 at venues on and around
Amelia Island, is calling all
nature lovers to participate in
deciding the mascot or special
"critter" to be featured as the
2011 logo.
Previous, Wild Amelia
Nature Festival mascots have
included the painted bunting,
the gopher tortoise, the north-
ern right whale and the great
egret, this past year's mascot.
Interested people can go to
the survey website and cast
their vote now until Oct. 15.
One lucky email address,
selected literally from a hat
will win a two-kayak rental,

The nominees this year
include the American alligator,
the green anole and the bob-
cat. Like previous mascots,

American alligator, the green anole and the
bobcat. Like previous mascots, each of these
nominees has a special story.

special story. The American alli-
gator, though much misunder-
stood, is a success story of a
once endangered animal saved
from extinction and now thriv-
ing. State and federal protec-
tion and habitat preservation
have helped the wild popula-
tion to number more than one
The green anole has a sad-
der story; since the arrival of
the larger Cuban or brown
anole, its numbers have severe-
ly declined. Green anoles can
change their color from neon
green to brown.
The third nominee, the bob-
cat, is difficult to spot and quite

shy. They live all over the
island, most typically in the
parks and the Greenway; they
are about twice the size of
domestic cats, usually quite
lean and recognizable by their
short, bobbed tail.
To vote for your favorite crit-
ter, go to www.wildamelia.com.
Once you have voted, your
email will be entered in the

SMITH. M.D. did lead to Dantonio having
....- one. After the game, the 54-
year-old Dantonio was
rushed to an East Lansing hospital, com-
plaining of chest pain. An hour lateX, he had
undergone a cardiac catheterization, open-
ing up a narrowing in one of the blood ves-
sels of his heart, and was released three
days later.
Dantonio watched last week's MSU-
lorthern Colorado game from home while
,covering, but will return to his head
coaching duties this week at Spartan
Stadium for Saturday's Big Ten opener
against Wisconsin. He'll fulfillhis duties
from the coaches' box, adding "I just think
walking around out there on the sideline for
three hours might be a little bit tiring."
Dantonio noted that his coaching staff
does not typically discuss player injuries. He
is treating this like an injury, does not want
it to be a distraction and, therefore, will not
discuss further his cardiac condition.
"I think the key will be moving forward
and getting stronger every day and dealing
with the consequences and dealing with the
things that you have to do," Dantonio said.
Dantonio's heart attack is the latest
reminder of the intense pressure and stress
college football coaches face.
Last December, Florida coach Urban
Meyer announced he was stepping down as
the Gators' coach after being rushed to the
hospital for chest pains after his team had
lost to Alabama. The next day he changed
his mind. The worse-case scenario occurred
in 2006 when Northwestern Coach Randy
Walker died suddenly at the age of 52 from
a heart attack.
Coaches put in long hours and are under
immense pressure to perform, while con-
stantly having to meet the demands of the
* university, the alumni, boosters, the media
and player parents. Most feel they have little
Time for exercise or to take care of them-
selves. They couldn't be more wrong, for
the consequences can be devastating.

28-3 to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday. The
Jags struggled offensively against the Eagles,
compiling 184 total yards, and Michael Vick
threw for three touchdowns and ran for anoth-
er. Despite having to punt on four of their first
five possessions, the Jaguars trailed just 7-3
with 12 seconds left in the first half before Vick
hit Jeremy Maclin with a 16-yard strike to
extend the Philadelphia lead to 14-7.
DEFENSE: The Jaguars defense sacked Vick
three times, but the Philadelphia defense
turned in six sacks of David Garrard.

yard rushing games have come in division

All aboard for

'Capt. Magic' ride

former Fernandina
Beach fixture is back
after a lorg hiatus,
Sand he's performing
his unique blend of music and
mentalism at Fernandina
Beach Little Theatre.
Andrew Yellen, better
known as the jazz Captain
Magic, had been well known
for years on the Fernandina
Beach music scene when he
moved away in 1985. Yellen
and his wife, Ruthellen
Mulberg, bought a boat and
spent the next 15 years cruis-
ing the'Caribbean.
."We stayed in the boatyard
in Key West for five years fix-
ing it up," Yellen said. "Then
we sailed out to the Virgin
Islands. From Key West to
Bimini, from Bimini to
Nassau to Georgetown, then
straight southeast to St.
John's. ... We still have a vaca-
tion villa there."
But eventually Yellen and
Mulberg found they wanted
to return to the U.S.
"I'm getting old. Gonna be,
one day," Yellen said. "Before
I got old, I thought I ought to
get a little closer to civiliza-
And when he and Mulberg
returned to Fernandina
Beach, they decided it was
time to get their act together,
so to speak. The opportunity
came when Kate Hart, artistic
director of FLT, asked them
to entertain at the theater's
fledgling After Supper Club.
Hart said the After Supper
Club emerged from "that sort
of New York cosmopolitan
idea of somewhere nice to go
later on a Saturday night.

Captian Magic, also known
as Andrew Yellen.

Captain Magic's
SFloating House Party will
play at Fernandina Little
Theatre's After Supper
Club Oct 2, 16 and 30.
There is no charge at the
door, although "love dona-
tions" are accepted.

Theatre is located at 1014

We're looking at things that
start around 9, 9:30 differ-
ent forms of entertainment.
"If we happen not to have a
play running, we'll have other
entertainment going on," she
added. "So every-weekend,
people will be able to say,
'Gee, what's happening at
Fernandina Little Theatre this
weekend?" It could be live
music; could be improve. The

19 meeting will feature Lori

Miranda has been a mem-

sid. "I have a son who plays
drums and a son who plays
keyboards. And we have a
bass player. They know all our
songs and soft jazz stylings."
Their show at FLT will
have the feel of a classic jazz
club, Hart said, with the usual
row seating in the theater
replaced by intimate tables.
Mulberg said she and
Yellen were glad of the
opportunity to bring their
music and magic to the public
"Kate is our patron saint
now," she said. "We're trying
to bring a little New York
sophistication to another long

Key West the lack of
places for the locals to relax
after the tourists have gone to
"Everything's geared
toward the outdoors. It's not a
late-night place," she said.
"When all the restaurants stop
serving at 10 o'clock, some-
times you just want to just sit
and have a cup of coffee."
Yellen said he sees the
After Supper Club as a perfect
complement to downtown's
restaurant scene. "We invite
anyone on Amelia Island to
eat dinner at one of the many,
many fine restaurants here,
and then come have their cof-
fee with us," he said.

Two of her favorite subjects
are architectural preservation
and genealogical research.
A house isn't a person, but
it has a life. From plans and
materials, to stories of the
families who have lived within,
its history can add life to a
family tree. Miranda's presen-
tation will cover types and
locations of research
resources; building the multi-
owner history; and how to use
a house, historic or not, to
uncover your family's forgot-
ten stories. The meeting will
be at the Police Community
Room on Lime Street at 7
p.m. All are welcome.
