First Avenue parking gets green light
City commissioners agreed 4-1
Tuesday to allow an undeveloped por-
tion of First Avenue to be turned into
a roadway with public parking, with
two stipulations: that the new road end
before reaching Cleveland Avenue,
and that zoning language be addressed
to accommodate modern parking
Commissioner Eric Childers voted
against the plan, arguing that trees
and vegetation in the city right-of-way
should be preserved and that enough
commercial parking is already avail-
The city's new roadway would be
paid for by Seaside Amelia, owner of
Sliders Seaside Grill on South Fletcher
Avenue, which asked for the addition-
al parking because of a planned expan-
sion of its restaurant -business.
It was also the consensus of com-
missioners that the area's C-l (Com-
mercial 1) zoning designation should
be rewritten or changed to accommo-
date its unique parking needs.
C-1 is a commercial district that
allows only on-site parking for restau-
rant businesses, not fiee-standing park-
ing lots. Businesses zoned C-3 are not
required to provide their own parking,
and C-2 allows for stand-alone com-
mercial or public parking, according to
Community Development Director
As Sliders is in a C-1 zone, Seaside
Amelia would need either a variance or
a Land Development Code amendment
to go ahead with the project.
The latest plan by local architect
John Cotner allows for 24 on-street
public parking spaces that Seaside
Amelia will ask to be counted toward
the parking requirement for the Sliders
. But Childers objected to the plan,
saying there is plenty of parking
already available at surrounding busi-
nesses such as Cedar River Seafood,
Shoney's and Dairy Queen, all on
"Look at the number of vacant park-
ing places on private property,"
Childers said. "I'd much rather see an
incentive program making (parking)
available to the public. I don't see the
value of tearing 'down more trees ..
That's a dangerous little intersection
there. I don't think it's a good idea."
"They're not allowed to put (public)
parking in a C-1 (area)," said Vice
Mayor Tim Poynter, "but they say a C-
1 must provide parking.... It's a typical
city quandary that we have. Most peo-
ple when they expand (their business)
they want to have parking available.
Where are customers supposed to
park? That's a problem."
"I think the worst thing we can do
is slow down business," said Commis-
sioner Arlene Filkoff.

Workers robbed at gunpoint
A Fernandina Beach man is under
arrest and a second is sought in the
armed robbery of Pizza HutTuesday
night when two employees were
forced back into the building after
closing and ordered to open the safe.
The robbers held them at gun-
point and threatened their lives as the
employees pleaded with the men,
explaining that the safe was time-
locked and could not be opened,
according to the Nassau County
Realizing they were telling the
truth, the robbers then demanded
the employees' personal possessions
and fled the business located at 2440
S. Eighth St., Fraanada,1each, the
sheriff's office TepOr1itd.
The victims called 911 and short-
ly after, a witness driving by the area
said he saw someone running away
from the restaurant. Police found a
man nearby who fit the description
but he fled on foot. He was captured
after a chase and later identified as
Albert Lynn Delon, 26, of Fernandina
Beach, the sheriff's office reported.
Police found a handgun along the
path of the foot chase and some of
the victims' possessions when they
checked Delon's clothing, the sheriff's
Delon is charged with one count of
robbery with a firearm, one count of
grand larceny and one count of pos-
session of a firearm by a convicted
felon. He is being held at the Nassau
County Jail on $275,006 bond.
Delon was sentenced to 18 months

City to loan
to pay McGill
ANGELA DAUGHTRY --
FThe city of Fernandina Beach will
pay McGill'Aviation, the airport's fixed-
base operator, $450,000 as part of a
final judgment in a lawsuit against the
company that began in 2004.
An arbitrator for the court ruled
against the city in August, finding that
it breached its lease with McGill and
interfered with the company's opera-
City commissioners unanimously
approved the payment at their meeting
Tuesday. The money will come from
rent, held in an escrow account since
July 2009, that McGill continued to
pay the city while litigation was ongo-
According to City Finance Director
Patti Clifford, the general fund will
loan the money to the municipal air-
port, which will then pay it back to
the city at 4 percent interest over 10
years using funds from its operations.
"The airport needs money to pay
the judgment and (the city needs) to
record the loan to the airport so that
they can pay the judgment.... If there
was no judgment against the airport,
it would have gone to the general
fund," Clifford told the commissioners.
Resident Brian Cook said the trans-
action "sure looks like a shell game to
me," and asked if the airport an
enterprise fund ever made any

the brunt of litigation fees.... This has
been a huge burden. Ever since the
lawsuit, it has not made any money."
When asked if any tax dollars were
paying for the airport lawsuit, Clifford
said "the general fund is more than just
tax revenues. ... I'm not willing to say
they are tax dollars."
The city also was ordered to pay.
McGill more than $750,000 in dam-
ages in August About $300,000 of that
is a rent credit of $3,084 that McGill
will receive each month from July 2008
through the end of its lease with the
city in 2018.
The city's lawsuit against McGill
alleged the company was taking over
more land at the airport than its lease
stated, as well as other claims.
The city was also forced to pay
around $80,000 in legal fees for an
additional unsuccessful lawsuit against
City Attorney Tammi Bach said a
hearing is scheduled in late October to
determine how much the city will pay
McGill in attorney's fees.
Stephen Durant, a Jacksonville
attorney, has been the city's lead coun-
sel on the case since 2007.

Police were called to Southside
Elementary School Wednesday
after an unauthorized person was
spotted on school property.
SStudents had already gone
home when the officers arrived,
and the suspicious person, along
'. il I ri other men, apparently
left'school grounds when they
caught wind of the search.
"It was a big deal about noth-
ing, h.n, iri.ly," said SharylWood,
director of administrative service
es for the Nassau County School
District. "We have a construction
project over there and we had
word that there were some people
over there who were not proper-
ly badged. We were going to go
approach them and they just sort
ol disappeared.... One thing led to
another and pretty soon there
were eight police there."
The men later returned to
retrieve their truck and were cited
for trespassing and told not to
Return, Wood said. She added that
she did not know the men's
The incident began when the
school received an anonymous tip
that a worker on its cafeteria con-
struction project was not author-
ized to be there. Unfortunately,
Wood said, the caller.didn't name
'The individual who called this
in anonymously said the individual
who wasn't supposed to be there
had a police record that was real-
ly bad," she said. "... If the person
had actually said,'Go out and look
for so-and-so on the construction
site,' it would have been really
helpful. But they didn't say that."
Wood said she arrived at the
school around 2 p.m. and began
checking the credentials of the
construction workers. When word
traveled back that badges were
being scrutinized, she said, the
suspect vanished along with two
"We only knew of one, but the
way the other two disappeared
makes you wonder if they were
properly credentialed either," she
said. "... The construction site is a
fenced-off area, but you could go
through or over the fence if you
wanted to. They went into the
building and must have gone out
the other side and over the fence.

wariness of excessive credit

the way for store layaway

this holiday season as shop-

day spending and use cash
for purchases instead of
Considering that 60 per-
cent of Americans admit
they do not have a holiday
budget and people spend up
to 30 percent more when
paying with plastic instead of
cash, it's easy to understand
why the American Bankers

takes the average consumer
six months to pay off season-

to make holiday spending

Cotner called the project an
"Parking for (zones) C-l and
C-2 is way off the charts," he
said. He also noted that,
although the city's Technical
Review Committee had recom-
mended cutting the roadway all
the way to Cleveland Avenue, it
could also work with a shorter
dead-end T, or three-point, turn-
"I go to Sliders a lot," said
Poynter. "It's difficult to find
parking, but I always do."
City Attorney Tammi Bach
said the commission could also
decide to take an amendment to
the Planning and Appeals Board
to change C-1 and C2 zoning.
Brian Cook was one of sev-
eral residents to object to the
plan. "My biggest concern is
we'll have all this overflow traf-
fic," he said. "Why is it our
responsibility to supply parking
for a restaurant?"
"I appreciate Sliders' oppor-
tunity to (expand their) busi-
ness," said resident Darrell
Williams, "but they use up a lot
of Seaside Park's parking. What
are we going for here? ... I'm
against poor community plan-
"It'll just end up being a race-
track heading south," said res-
ilent George Moeller of the pro-
posed roadway. "Instead of
going through the roundabout,
they'll race through there."
Resident Lynn Williams said
even 40 to 60 parking spaces
would not solve the problem,
because beachgoers will most
likely take up the new spots. "I
live down there," he said.
"Spreading more asphalt and
concrete doesn't solve the proB-
lem. Let's try to get the ordi-
nances right in that area."
"I think there is a very valid
argument (to pave the road),"
Poynter said: "It's a right of way
between two comm ercial park-
ing lots. ... There's still a need
for parking for the beach
accesses. I don't think environ-
mentally it would impact the
community at all."
"I'm fine with that plan," said
Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch.
"We do need to provide some
parking down there."
"I don't think everyone is
capable of making a three-point
turnaround," said Childers. "I'm
not convinced it's the answer. I
think removing parking require-
ments is a better idea. If they

McCrary said changing the
wording for C-1 zoning would
require a changed in the Land
Development Code, which
would then have to go to the
Planning and Appeals Board
and then before city commis-
sioners for final approval a
two- to three-month process. A
variance for the Sliders project
would be the most expeditious
route, he said.

Commissioners differ on evaluation methods
Filkoff at a recent special meet-
ing had trouble getting fellow
city commissioners to agree to
using her methods when eval-
uating the performance of the
city's charter officers.
Charter officers who
include the city manager, city
clerk and city attorney are
reviewed by the commissioners
annually but, according to City
Attorney Tammi Bach, they are
not required to submit written
"We should be measuring
these three people with the
same criteria," Filkoff told fel-
low commissioners at the meet-

Poynter said the five commis-
sioners all come from different
backgrounds and have differ-
ent ideas and thoughts about
the performance of the char-
"I'm not in favor of every-
one being in the same cookie
box," Poynter said. "It's going
to skew what I think about the
person ... because I'm going to
follow some preconceived idea
that I don't adhere to."
Filkoff said that, as a result
of the shared objectives and
priorities the commissioners
have for the city, they should
also "work within that con-
text" regarding the charter offi-
"Can we all agree on the
way we measure (performance
of the charter officers)?" she
"That's not possible,
because we all have different
experiences and views," said
Commissioner Eric Childers.
"If I evaluated them, I would
sit down at the computer and
write what's in my head," said
Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch.
But Filkoff asked what the
charter officers would be
expected to do if the separate
evaluations didn't match.
"That's one of the difficulties
the city manager has, because
we're all asking for different
things," Poynter said. "(But)

FRIDAY. October 8. 2010 NEWS News-Leader
Caution urged on
fair rides this fall
Agriculture and Consumer
Charles H. Bronson is urging
consumers to heed safety
rules on fair rides now that the
fall fair season is approaching.
The majority of fair ride acci-
dents are caused by patron
error and many injuries can
be avoided by following the
rules posted at the locations.
The department's Bureau
of Fair Ride Inspections is
responsible for inspecting
amusement rides at temporary
events (fairs, carnivals and fes-
tivals) and permanent amuse-
ment facilities (go-kart parks
and water parks) for structur-
al and operational integrity.
All traveling amusement
rides receive permits on an
annual basis but, in addition,
each amusement ride must be
inspected every time it is set
up and must pass inspection
prior to being opened to the
public. Rides at most perma-
nent amusement facilities are
inspected and permitted twice
each year. Florida has about
211 permanent amusement
parks and more than 167 trav-
eling amusement companies.
The department's 15 ride
inspectors performed more
than 9,500 amusement ride
inspections in Florida last year.
Historically, statistics show
that reported accidents were
the result of patron error about
92 percent of the time. The
remaining 8 percent were
attributable to mechanical or
operational problems or the
cause was undetermined. In
addition, since 1997 the num-
ber of rides that failed the
bureau's first inspection has
dropped from approximately
60 percent to about 44 percent.
Bronson believes the ride own-
ers and operators are doing a
better job of assembling,
inspecting and maintaining the
rides as a result of the strin-
gent inspection requirements
and scrutiny of the depart-
ment's inspection program.
"Florida has one of the
strictest fair ride safety pro-
grams in the nation," Bronson
said. "Our inspectors work
hard to ensure the rides are
erected properly and the
equipment is in good working
order but riders also need to
be responsible and follow the
rules and regulations to pre-
Ride patrons should always
observe cautionary instruc-
lions and consider physical
limitations when riding any
amusement ride. They should
also pay special attention to
size or age restrictions for chil-
dren to ride on certain rides.
Ride inspectors receive
refresher training at least twice
each year to keep up to date on
the latest inspection tech-
niques, manufacturers' bul-
letins and safety alerts.
Department inspectors utilize
laptop computers in the field as
a resource to verify ride infor-
mation on expiration of per-
mits'and insurance and inspec-

Gen Y and its autos
Being a proud parent of
two Generation Y kids, I can
attest that there is a lot to be
hopeful for in this new wave
They are 75 million in
number, having been born to
baby-boomer parents betwe-
en 1982 and 1995, according
to most. You may have also
heard them referred to as the
Millenials, Echo Boomers or
the Net Generation. At my
son's freshman orientation
this summer, the faculty pro-
filed this group as accom-
plishment oriented, socially
and environmentally con-
scious and even anxious for
parental input. I firmly
believe they are going to be a
credit to themselves and our
country at a time when we
really need it.
Now the car part. They
are open to all options and,
interestingly, like the concept
of made in America. Let me
qualify that it may be made
in America by an internation-
al company, but the fact that
fellow Americans built it
appeals to them. They are
increasingly willing to work
in the automotive industry,
having been surveyed last
year to this year with a 20
percent increase in willing-
ness to consider working in
the U.S. auto industry (50
percent versus 30 percent).
Gen Y didn't like the
bailouts 44 percent prefer
not to buy a car from a com-
pany that accepted federal
used cars -
they are a
five years. They increasingly
are open to the concept of an
SUV in five years not a gas-
guzzler though. They are
very environmentally driven
- 64 percent were willing to
pay more for a car that was
either eco-friendly or one that
saves money.on energy
costs. The type of car they
buy makes a concrete differ-
ence to them in their global
and local environment.
They shop differently.
Their reliance on texting and
the Internet in their lifetime
has diminished their ability
to meet and talk to someone
in person I worry about
that a little. They rely more
on a manufacturer's website
for information than a blog or
social media 60 percent
don't go there for input. They
don't like going to a dealer-
ship (gets back to the having
to talk to someone issue).

the time. Sixty percent wish
there weren't a salesman -
maybe one day you will go to
a dealership and buy from a
kiosk but I hope not.
While I am sure to be con-
sidered a fossil to this gener-
ation, my admiration for
them outweighs my con-
cerns. They are customers of
today and, importantly, years
and years to come.

may have to sell some assets just to pay the estate taxes!
A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize estate taxes. Plus, a living
trust may protect your estate if you become incapacitated during your life-
lime by avoiding a guardianship. This means your estate may be managed
as you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit, To find out more

Homecoming is an impor-

1. Most teens don't drink.
While teens may hear quite a
bit of "drunk-talk" at school
and especially during home-
coming week, it is important
for them to understand the
context of this talk. The stuv
dents that are drinking are
going to brag the loudest
about their behaviors. No one
walks into school on Monday
morning saying, "Dude, I was
so sober this weekend." But in
reality, the majority of stu-
dents were not drinking. The
bottom line is that the over-
whelming majority of students
will have a great time during
homecoming festivities with-

is an acceptable phrase among
teen groups for saying "No
thank you" when it comes to
alcohol and other substances.

are serious about enforcing
the house rules surrounding
alcohol, then you have provid-
ed them with a powerful "opt-
out" mechanism should they
be faced with this decision in a

tell them "No" when it comes
to alcohol. There is no such
thing as safe teen drinking.
Even the most well-meaning
parents may be tempted to
waiver in their "zero-toler-
ance" standards for their
teens. There are many argu-
ments against parents who
allow their teens to drink,
including the potential crimi-
nal and civil consequences for
providing alcohol to someone
else's teen. But there is a larg-
er issue of respect between
the teen and parent. Nation-
wide, most teens report they
neither approve of nor respect
adults that provide alcohol to
teens. Let "No" be the mantra
this homecoming season.
Let's "be the wall" between
our teens and alcohol this
homecoming season and
every day of the year.

SAh, fall and the humble pot pie
ping a few nights ago and she
asked me what I wanted for supper
for the week. I think like most
Americans, we tend to be complacent and eat
pretty much the same thing night after night,
perhaps with a variation on a culinary theme
here and there. That or we go out to eat. I was
standing near the frozen prepared meals sec-
tion when she asked me this question and the
answer popped out of my mouth quicker than
you can say Orville Redenbacher: How about
pot pies, honey? Pot pies, she asked? Yep, pot
pies, I said.
As we stood in front of the frozen case
debating chicken versus turkey versus beef,
and also which brand, a lady pushing a buggy
with a little girl in it stopped and reached into
the case and picked up a couple of one of the
brands we'd been debating. Try these, she
said, holding up the brand my wife favored
like a television pitchman. My husband loves
them, and once you taste this kind, you won't
ever go back to those, she asserted, pointing
at mine like it was a cup of hemlock. We com-
promised and bought some of each.
Pot pies, you say? Yep, pot pies. I love me
some pot pies, to put it grammatically incor-
rectly but gastronomically spot on'.Give me a
little bite in the air like we've had the past few
nights and a good football game or program
on the television set, a piping hot pot pie filling
the house with the aroma of beef simmered in
rich brown sauce and flaky crust turning gold-
en and a glass of sweet tea to
wash it down with and I'm in
OK, at a bazillion calories
per unit, pot pies probably
aren't the meals you ought to
.toss into the shopping cart if
you're paying any attention at
all to your waistline, weight
or cholesterol. But there
are times when you just have
to throw sound medical
advice and sensible eating
habits to the wind and make
your belly sing the Hallelujah
So what is it about the humble flaky crust
filled with tender bits of beef, turkey, chicken
and veggies smothered in sauce, topped off
with a flaky crust cap and cooked till it's as
golden brown as a batch of grandma's sugar
cookies that's got me practically slobbering on
my keyboard just thinking about it? Easy. Pot
pips are comfort food to many of us past the
ripened age of 50. They were the meals our
mamas had ready when our daddies came
home from work dead dog tired and there was.
a baseball game, heavyweight fight or a new
John Wayne or Disney movie on the old Philco
television set that night and we received spe-
cial parental dispensation to forgo the formali-
ties of the dining room table and sit crossed
legged on the living room floor eating like
cowboys around the campfire. The humble pie
hearkens back to a simpler, less frenetic day
when families spent time together in the
evening and the Ajax white knight charged
across television screens, aimed his lance at
kids playing in the dirt and their clothes were
suddenly spotless. It is Walter Cronkite inton-
ing in that famous baritone of his at the end of
the newscast, "And that's the way it is on Oct.

your tongue and the roof of your mouth like

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
If it looks like a duck ... I'm con-
fused having read the article about
Mr. Kelley endorsing Mr. Spicer and
the rebuttal of the Republican Party.
County Chairman (Bob) Brown
("Kelley move rankles GOP," Sept. 29).
In the article Mr. Brown stated he
was proud to endorse Mr. Holloway, a
proven tax cutter. In the same news-
paper on the front page the News-
Leader reported that the county budg-
et was approved and increased by $4
million over last year, from $144 mil-
lion to $148 million. Maybe that is the
Republican Party and Mr. Brown's
idea of a conservative proven tax cut-
ter, but it is not mine.
Mr. Brown championed Mr.
Holloway as having a real plan to move
Nassau County forward. If Mr.
Holloway's record of taxing and spend-
ing is the Republican plan, maybe it is
time to consider a Spicer. In that same
article Mr. Holloway is credited with
being a real Republican due to his
accountability, fiscal responsibility and
smaller government. If increasing the
county budget by'$4 million is Mr.,
Brown's idea of fiscal responsibility'
then I qqiestioh if he is speaking for
himself, his candidate, or the party he
was elected to represent. I can assure
you he doesn't speak for me.
Mr. Brown stated in the article that
Mr. Spicer is an "independent candi-
date." I checked with the Supervisor
of Elections office and was informed
that Mr. Spicer is a registered
"Republican" running as a NPA (no
party affiliation). It sounds to me as if
Mr. Spicer doesn't pass the litmus test
to be a "Nassau County Republican."
Mr. Brown goes on to say that Mr.
Spicer is woefully unprepared to man-
age the multimillion-dollar budget of
our county. I challenge Mr. Brown's
statement of "woefully unprepared"
and remind Mr. Brown that four years
ago we elected Mr. Holloway, who also
had no experience in managing a mul-
timillion-dollar budget. In the past
Republicans held our officials account-
able. Mr. Holloway's voting record
over the past four years has proven to
be a disappointment.
In closing, Mr. Brown mentioned
the disappointment of Kelley's sup-
porters. I find that hard to believe. I did
vote for Mr. Kelley on Aug. 24 but I will
be voting for Mr. Spicer on Nov. 2 and
hope many concerned Nassau voters
will join me.
I wish to commend Ron Sapp for
his stand on the issue of fees for pub-
lic access to the beaches ("City budg-
et rejects core values," Sept. 29).
He is entirely correct in branding
these types of fees an indication of
abandonment of core values of this
community. Let's hope that this kind of
negative action does not prevail.
I was a citizen of Fernandina Beach
for 20 years during the 195s and '60's
and among my most fond memories of
Fernandina Beach was my ability to
access the surf on Amelia Island unim-
Jonathan and Dorothy Hill
I am strongly opposed to parking
meters on any of our beaches.
I would rather see the city.take a
realistic look at staffing and other costs
to balance the budget.
I don't think the city has taken a
realistic view of the negative impact
this proposal would create, or the real
cost to implement.
More important, I don't believe the
city commission is taking the citizen's
.desires into consideration.
Thanks to. the letter writer
('Amendment 4," Sept. 29) for clearly
stating the case for approval of
Bottom line: Why should we con-
tinue to permit three votes (of five
commissioners, city or county) to over-
turn the citizens' expressed desires
in their comp plan?
The comp plan is developed
through representative government,
the Local Planning Agency
(Fernandina's Planning Advisory
Board), and extensive citizen input
(FS164:3174, et seq.). It defines the
'way in which the citizens of the com-
munity want that community devel-
oped. It requires periodic review with
citizen input and is supposed to be dif-
ficult to change.
The argument that citizens are too
ignorant or uninformed or uninvolved
to knowledgeably handle special elec-
tions is specious or incredibly insult-
ing. Following the argument to its con-
clusion, the commissioners that
electorate put into office are poten-
tially equally ill informed. In that case,
the rest of us deserve the opportuni-
ty to slow or stop changes to our comp

Re: the letter "Tea Party" Sept. 24.
Wow, very interesting stuff.
To say the Tea Party is a "grass-
roots movement" is not really a factu-
al.statement. There is a huge differ-
ence between grass and Astroturf. I
am sure the author had the best inten-
tions in mind, but the facts do get in
The Tea Party got its boost from a
guy named Rick Santelli in February
2009. Rick had this outburst in
Chicago against Obama's policies con-
cerning the government's handling of
failed mortgages. Many believe that
this wasn't as innocent and sponta-
neous as it appeared, but that it was a
carefully planned start to a movement
that was going to be funded by some
very big interest groups.
Let's look at what this grassroots
child has grown into. Its first national
convention was in 2010 in Nashville.
The keynote address was given by
Sarah Palin. The Tea Party is largely
funded by a group called Freedom
Works headed by Dick Armey. The
list of folks that have been associated
with the Tea Party is very impressive:
Sarah Palin, their first keynote speak-
er; Sal Russo, who is with the Tea
Party Express. They have spent over
$1 million to get Harry Reid out of
office, $350,000 to elect Scott Brown
and are presently funding Christine
O'Donnell in Delaware. Fox News,
Hannity, Beck, Bachmann, the Koch
brothers are all folks who are con-
tributing to and/or supporting the Tea
By now you must think this is being
penned by some left-wing crazy.
Crazy, maybe, left-wing, no. Let's be
honest about the first statement in this
article the Tea Party is not grass-
roots groups of concerned folks
wanting to change government. It may
be a lot of folks who, such as myself,
want to change government, but it is
being funded and influenced by a
very select group of wealthy and
influential organizations and individ-
uals who have a strong financial inter-
est into which way the government
Now don't think for a moment the
left side of this picture is any clearer,
brighter or cleaner than the right. Both
parties have their own agenda they
are working on. I think once we figure
out both sides are not snow white, we
can deal with this much better.
The meat of the Sept. 24 letter was
that the Tea Party wasn't being
allowed to go into a public school and
give a presentation. (This is the part
where you can call me crazy.) Why in
the world would a tax-based school
system allow a political party, and you
cannot deny the Tea Party is a politi-
cal party, a wing of a political party or
the start of a political party to make
any presentation to students?
Can you imagine if a local group of
Democrats went into a public school
and gave any presentation on any part
of government and Rush Limbaugh
got wind of it? Mr. Limbaugh would
have laryngitis he would be screaming
so much and I would be there
screaming with him!
The schools have good teachers. I
have had conversations with students
who praise the way government is
taught at the high school level. The
teachers teach government without
their personal views playing a role. I
am sure the Tea Party and its speak-
ers may have the best of intentions, but
the facts still remain that by association
they represent a political view and a
party that conforms to that view. I am
not saying the view is right, nor am I
saying the view is wrong, but we can't
put our heads in the sand and not think
the students would not be influenced
with respect to their potential political
views by allowing this.
The author stated she had no idea
what the 27-point presentation was,
yet felt it was the school board's job to
investigate them. It is the school
board's job to make sure the students
are being taught without the slightest
hint of partisanship or bias. The school
board was correct on this one.
I would suggest that should she
feel, or anyone feel, that our politics
have gone wrong and that we should
make our elected officials more
accountable to us that "we the peo-
ple" should do it the way our Founding
Fathers had intended.
Get the information get it from
the right, from the left and from the
middle. Make a decision based on the
information. Pick a candidate, support
them and campaign for them. And
then, like our Founding Fathers want-
Once again I find myself pondering
what the Founding Fathers might have
to say about political correctness.
While they gathered behind closed
doors and were considering writing
the Declaration of Independence, I
doubt if they were trying to be politi-
cally correct. Let's try to understand
what the results would have been if
they had been worried about being
politically correct in their thoughts
There came a time when the King
of England demanded too much
from the colonists, consisting of 13
states. Had political correctness been
the law of the land, the Founding
Fathers and the colonists would have
accepted a life of tyranny. They would
not have stood on the grounds that
all men are created equal, endowed by
their Creator with certain unalienable
rights (and) that among these are life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
They would not have claimed that to
secure these rights, governments are
instituted among men, deriving their
just powers from the consent of the
Under political correctness, how
can we envision them believing that
when any form of government
became destructive of these ends, it is
the right of the people to alter or
abolish it and to institute new gov-
Again, not being politically correct
allowed them to seek out safety and
happiness with a new form of gov-
ernment, consisting of the people, by
the people and for the people. Their
Declaration of Independence proves
that in no circumstance were they con-
cerned about, political correctness.'
Their sole'purpose was to purge the
tyrannical government that the King of
England inflicted upon them.
The Declaration would never have
been created if the mindset of political
correctness was, the deciding factor
of how they thought and spoke. They
would not have been able to proclaim
a faith in God, had they been politically
correct. The church would never have
been able to use the pulpit to inform
and lead the cause of freedom as an
alternative to tyranny.
We have taken but a brief look at
what free men accomplished by trust-
ing in the Divine Providence of the
Creator, knowing that at all times they
were spiritually correct and not polit-
ically correct. Their vision and cause
was just and thereby blessed with vic-
tory by God.
Let us now take a look at America
today and how a distorted claim of
political correctness is costing us
everything. We are no longer allowed
to grace our' children's lives with
prayer in school. We no longer can
make the claim that a marriage con-
sists of a man and woman, and we are
forced to accept all alternative
lifestyles. We have become numb to
the slaughter of millions of unborn.
We are forced to accept cultures
from around the world calling this
nation a melting pot, using it as a
means to destroy Americanism in
We have accepted the annihilation
of our industrial strength. We have
become accustomed to corruption in
all political and corporate arenas. We
have been fed a steady diet'of godless
entertainment. We have watched as

FRIDAY. OCTOBER 8. 2010/NEWS-LEADER
Author Jamie Ford to appear at 2001 book festival
For the News-Leader
The never-ending quest of the
Amelia Island Book Festival is to
bring great authors to our quaint
city. Whether they are diamonds in
the rough or bestsellers, the book
festival's goal is to give back to the
community by inspiring reading and
writing through exposure to a vari-
ety of amazingly talented writers.
The 2011 Amelia Island Book
Festival; Feb. 18 and 19, has done it
again with New York Times best-
selling author, Jamie Ford: He has
an appealing outlook with his unique
blend of dry humor and poignant
prose that creates an intriguing,
entertaining masterpiece that keeps
any reader entranced and yearning
to read more, yet wanting to linger
so the book never ends.
Ford's book, Hotel on the Corner
ofBitter and Sweet, begins with an
event that happened in real life. In
the opening pages, the fictional pro-
tagonist Henry Lee comes upon a
crowd gathered outside the Panama
Hotel, once the gateway to Seattle's
Japantown. The new owner has dis-
covered the belongings of Japanese
families who were sent to intern-
ment camps during World War II. As
the owner displays a Japanese para-
sol Henry, a Chinese American,
remembers a young Japanese
American girl from his childhood in
the 1940s Keiko Okabe, with
whom he forged a bond of friend-
ship and innocent love that tran-
scended the prejudices of their Old
World ancestors. After Keiko and
her family were evacuated to the
internment camps, she and Henry
could only hope their promise to
each other would be kept. Now, 40
years later, Henry explores the
hotel's basement for the Okabe fami-
ly's belongings and for a long-lost
object whose value he cannot begin
to measure. His search will take him
on a journey to revisit the sacrifices
he has made for family, for love, for

father mentioned wearing as a kid.
There was a bit of an identity crisis
in the International District in the
wake of Pearl Harbor. Many Chinese
families feared for their safety, espe-
cially as the FBI was rounding up
prominent members of the Japanese
community. It piqued my curiosity
and really led me to research the
whole period." This curiosity led to a
short story about Henry and Keikd,
which after winning an award even-
tually became a chapter in Hotel on
the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.
Ford was also asked which ele-
ments of his compelling, touching
yet historical novel came most natu-
rally to him. "I'd have to say that the
'love story/family drama' came most
naturally. If I were to list my all-time
favorite movies, they tend to be com-
plicated people stories, a bit senti-
mental and devoid of car chases and
epic gun battles it's just what I
relate to and what Ilike writing
"The historical aspects are a
close second, though. I love cultural
history and am always pleasantly
surprised at how much I enjoy the
research process. I feel like an
archaeologist, dusting off the past
and presenting it to the reader. And
of course, it adds context to my
characters, giving them a rich world
to splash around in. I find the whole
process incredibly motivating as a
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and
Sweet has received numerous acco-
lades including an IndieBound
NEXT List Selection, a Borders
Original Voices Selection, a Barnes
& Noble Book Club Selection,
Pennie's Pick at Costco, a Target
Bookmarked Club Pick and a
National Bestseller. It was also
named the No. 1 Book Club Pick for
Fall 2009/Winter 2010 by the *
American Booksellers Association.
With an impressive list of glowing
reviews from critics and authors
alike, the 2011 Amelia Island Book
Festival, Feb. 18 and 19, is thrilled to
have Jamie Ford as a headline
author. His next novel, Whispers of a
Thunder God, is planned for a 2011

In its inaugural season, the IFA
Kayak Tour presented by Hobie
Fishing continues to meet the needs
of anglers from Texas to the Carolin-
as, most recently by announcing
modifications to a pair of rules for its
premier, kayak-only tournament
Throughout the remainder of the
2010 season, all tournament partici-
pants will compete using artificial
baits only and will not be allowed to
use any live, formerly live or pre-
pared baits. In addition to introducing
artificial-bait only guidelines, the IFA
Redfish Tour will also cease its cap on
the 27-inch maximum length meas-
urement on redfish caught during
competition. Previously, competitors
could receive up to the maximum of'
27 inches in length for any redfish
that adheres to the guidelines set
forth in this catch-photograph-release
IFA Kayak Tour tournament win-
ners are decided by a combined total
length measurement of their largest
redfish and largest speckled sea
trout. This rule modification now
gives anglers the credit for the entire
size of their catch, helping to fuel
interest in redfish competitions and
spotlight those conservation efforts
that help ensure trophy-class fishing

The IFA Redfish Tour continues to
draw redfish anglers from Texas to
the Carolinas and beyond, offering
two-angler teams the opportunity to
compete in six different divisions,
each offering a three-event regular

I JAGUAR UPDATE:
1E Jags at Bills
LAST GAME: The Jacksonville Jaguars are com-
ing off a thrilling 31-28 win over division rival
Indianapolis at EverBank Field. Josh Scobee con-
nected on a franchise-record 59-yard field goal as
time expired to even the Jaguars' record at 2-2. It
was the third-longest game-ending field goal in
NFL history. Maurice Jones-Drew finished with
105 rushing yards and two touchdowns (one rush-
ing, one receiving) as the Jaguars outrushed the
Colts 174 to 58. The Jaguars forced the Colts into
two turnovers (one interceptions, one fumble) and
did not allow a sack or turn the ball over. Both of
the Jaguars' takeaways came in the red zone in
the second half with S Anthony Smith recording
an interception and a forced fumble.
NEXT UP: The Jaguars look for their second con-
secutive win and first on the road as they battle
the Buffalo Bills Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. The Jaguars are facing
road trips in three of the next four weeks before
their bye in week nine. The Bills lead the regular
season series with the Jaguars 5-4. The teams
are meeting for the fifth consecutive season with
the Jaguars winning two of the last three.
RADIO/TV: The game will be broadcast regionally
on CBS and locally on WTEV CBS47. Games are
broadcast on Jaguars Radio Network stations
WOKV AM and FM (690 and 106.5).

Halfofelbow dislocations are sports related
Ilbow dlislocations are not
all that common, occur-
ring only in about six per
100,000 people. But, as
uncommon as they are, I have
seen two in just the last two
weeks. Sports account for- 50 per-
cent of the causes of elbow dislo-
cations and contact sports are
most commonly involved. It hap-
pens more commonly in males
than females, and interestingly,
the non-dominant extremity is
involved most often.
The dislocation typically
occurs as the arm bone
(humerus) moves forward on the
forearm (radius and ulna). This
gives the elbow a grossly mis-
shapen appearance, as the bone at
the back of your elbow, the olecra-
non, appears much larger and
more prominent. The elbow is
painful to move and, what little
motion there is, definitely does
not feel normal.
The first in my recent series
was a wide receiver who came
down awkwardly and felt his
elbow slip out of place: I hap-
opened to be on
the sideline at
the time of his
injury. He went
S down and was
attended to by
the athletic train-
er, who signaled
for me to come
South to midfield.
cDAOTC It was clearly
JSPORS obvious he had
MEDICINE dislocated his
GREGORY Given the fact
SM II,- M.D. that it just hap-
pened, I knew I
S could get him in
without great difficulty or without
a lot of pain to the player. An
exam was done to verify there
was no artery or nerve injury. I
then pulled some traction through
his forearm and guided his elbow
back in place. His pain was imme-
diately relieved and we escorted
him off the field.
He actually asked if he could
go back in to play as soon as his
elbow was back in place. Follow-
up X-rays were obtained to verify
he had no associated fractures.
The next was a lineman who
tripped and fell to his out-
stretched left arm when his elbow
popped out. lie came running off
the field holding his arm. The
elbow was awkwardly aligned and
the player was in obvious pain. I
was not at that,game and he was
seen in the emergency room,
where we got his elbow joint back
After put back into place, the
majority of elbow dislocations do
not usually need any kind of sur-
gical treatment. Early range of
motion is prescribed to avoid stiff-
ness that could result from any
long immobilization or casting.
Immediately after putting the
elbow back in place, a repeat
exam is done to verify stability,
which helps dictate an after-injury
rehab program. Recurrent dislo-
cation, or the elbow coming out
again, is not common, but when it
does occur, it is more likely to
occur in the adolescent patient
Elbow dislocations can have
other injuries associated with
them. This would include frac-
tures, artery injury or nerve
injury. Fortunately, all of these
complications are infrequent.
Athletes can return to play
once the elbow motion, stability
and strength have returned to
normal. This typically will take 4-6
weeks. I do tend to have the ath-
lete wear a supportive brace for
the remainder of the season once
they return to their activity:

Tarpon are still hanging around,

"Dale Taylor and I knew the tar-
pon were.real thick at the Nassau
Sound and targeted our fishing
around the falling tide," Capt. Benny
Hendrix said. "After cast netting a
few live mullet, we barbed live mul-
let and cast them into the thick
schools of tarpon and mullet.
'There were literally tarpon
everywhere. However, after fishing
for a while without a strike, Dale cut
up a live mullet and cast a large
chunk of mullet into the school of
tarpon. The cut bait drifted with the
tide and was soon gobbled up by a
100-pound silver king. But the tar-
pon ran under the bridge and soon

Fruity, light Beaujolais
ideal wine for autumn
For the News-Leader
The early autumn is an odd
time of year: a little chill in the

cold light white wine, yet too
warm for heavy winter reds.
But it's the perfect time for
Beaujolais: a light, fun red wine;
some have called Beaujolais a
white wine that happens to be
red. It's not too heavy, it's very
fruity and benefits from being
served slightly chilled, between
56 and 62 degrees.
Beaujolais is a French wine
made from the gamay grape (a
cross of pinot noir and tile

GALA Continued from 1B
formance was such a success that Foster
immediately began work with Joseph on
what would become his major-label solo
debut album, With-in (2004), featuring a
mix of original compositions, reworked
rock songs and modern takes on classical
pieces; the title song was the piece he
had played for David Foster.
Joseph subsequently toured with both
Josh Groban and Clay Aiken. He has
opened for or appeared with Tim
McGraw, Faith Hill, Beyonc6, Barbra
Streisand, Kenny G and Michael Bubl6,
and played at special private events for
Jane Seymour, Oprah Winfrey, Tom
Hanks and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Since 2008, the so-called "classical pop"
pianist has been headlining his own con-
cert tour, hot off the heels of his second
album, Beyond (2008). He also continues
to write songs for the likes of Celtic
Woman and others.
Joseph credits much of his success to

seven generations and is filled with price-

House was in such need of repair that it
has virtually been rebuilt replicating the

work in the home.
A smaller cottage dating back to 1866

home for the owner, a Union major dur-
ing the Civil War, it was one of the first
homes built when David Yulee, Fernan-
dina's first real estate developer, pi-o-
posed a new city and led the population to
move from "Old Town" to the present
Fernandina location. Major Duryee
became a civic leader, while his wife
became well known for her eccentricities.
The fourth home is considered as an
architectural "jewel" from the Victorian
period. It has all of the recognized exteri-

buildings ... they're organization and fam-
ily, a support team and a way to have
mentors. It's the people inside that matter
and some of them continue as 'go to peo-
ple' for me to this day."
For the Amelia Island event, Joseph
promises "anything but a normal piano
concert. I travel with an amazing violinist
and will have a drummer and cellist as
well. I absolutely love to perform. It's
very interactive; I tell some funny stories;'
it's a really good time." He wryly charac-
terizes himself as "a classical pianist total-
ly gone wrong. I've got the classical back-
ground, but I also enjoy rhythm and
doing popular songs and incorporating
these things into my music."
"We are indeed fortunate to have
or features cherished during that colorful
era. The present owners bought the
home originally in 1994 but sold it nine
years later. They quickly missed the
charm of the home and the convenience
to the downtown area, however; and
when it became available again, they re-
purchased it five years later and have put
the final touches on the renovation.
All of the homes emphasize the vari-
ety and desirability of preserving
Fernandina's past. Museum docents will
be present, many in costume, to tell the
unique stories of each residence. Free
trolley service will be available on a rotat-
ing basis between the homes and the
museum. Parking will be available at the
museum or on-street at any of the homes.
In conjunction with the tour, a
Victorian Tea will be offered again this

setting for the tea that will feature a menu

WINE Continued from 1B
French law, these small vineyards
have continued to the present time -
there are more than 4,000 vineyard
owners in Beaujolais -which is why
most easily available Beaujolais
comes from n6gociants such as
Louis Jadot, Bouchard Pbre et Fils
and Georges Duboeuf.
In contrast to pinot noir, the
Burgundy grape, gamay ripens two
weeks earlier and is less difficult to
cultivate. It also produces a strong,
fruitier wine in much larger abun-
dance. In the 14th and 15th cen-
turies, the dukes of Burgundy out-
lawed the cultivation of gamay as
being "a very bad and disloyal plant,"
due in part to the variety occupying
land that could be used for the more
"elegant" pinot noir. This had the
effect of pushing gamay plantings
southward, out of the main region of
Burgundy and into the granite based
soils of Beaujolais where the grape
There are 12 main Beaujolais
types covering 96 villages. About half
of all Beaujolais is sold under the
generic Beaujolais designation. This
mass-produced wine is heavily fil-
tered for better stabilization. As a
result, it loses much of its fruitiness
and complexity; it has been called
Beaujolais-Villages, most com-
monly found in local stores, is an
intermediate wine in terms of quality.
These wines are meant to be:con-
sumed young, within two years of
Cru Beaujolais, the highest quali-
ty, are produced within 10 areas in
the foothills of the Beaujolais
Mountains. Unlike elsewhere in
France, the phrase cru in Beaujolais
refers to an entire wine producing
area rather than an individual vine-
yard. These wines do not usually
show the word "Beaujolais" on the
label, in an attempt to separate them
from mass-produced wine. Cru
Beaujolais can be more full-bodied,
darker in color, with more pro-
nounced aromas and flavors and sig-
The 10 Beaujolais crus differ in
character. The lightest bodied crus,
meant to be consumed within three
years of the vintage are: Brouilly,
noted for earthiness; R6gni6, more
fuller bodied, noted for its currant
and raspberry flavors; and
Chiroubles; noted for a delicate
aroma of violets.
Medium bodied crus, meant to be
consumed within fours years of the
vintage (ifvin de garde (wine for
aging) is on the label the wine can
last up to 16 years) are: C6te de
Brouilly, more deeply concentrated
with less earthiness than Brouilly
wine; Fleurie, often with a velvet tex-
turd with fruity and floral-bouquet;
and Saint-Amour, noted for spicy fla-
vors with aromas of peaches.
The crus that produce the fullest
bodied Beaujolais, and which need
the most time aging in the bottle,
four to 10 years after harvest, are:
Ch6nas, aroma of wild roses;
Juli6nas, richness and spice;
Morgon, earthy wines that can take
on a Burgundian character of silky
texture with the deepest color and
most richness of the Beaujolais; and
Moulin-A-Vent, where some produc-
ers age their wine in oak which gives
them more tannin and structure than
other Beaujolais wines.
Brouilly and Fleurie are my
favorites with turkey, chicken and
ham: I prefer Morgon and Moulin-A-
Vent with heavier meats and stews
because of their higher tannins.
Best of all, almost all Beaujolais is
very inexpensive; Beaujolais-Villages
is typically less than $15, and a cru
Beaujolais less than $20.
Beaujolais has been making the
wrong kind of news recently.
The process of chaptalization -
adding sugar to boost alcohol levels
- has been controversial. This cre-
ates wine that lacks structure and
balance. The recent trend towards
higher quality wine production has
limited'the use of chaptalization in
the better Beaujolais. However, in
2007, five people were arrested and
some 100 growers were accused of
using the sugar for illegal chaptaliza-
The Vins Georges Duboeuf com-
pany was charged in 2005 with mix-
ing low-grade wine with better vin-
tages after a patchy harvest.
Duboeuf denied wrongdoing, saying
that none of the affected wine was
released to consumers. The produc-
tion manager responsible admitted
his actions and resigned, and a court
found that both "fraud and attempted
fraud concerning the origin and
quality of wines" had been commit-
ted. Fewer than 200,000 liters of the
company's annual 270 million liter
production were implicated, but
LAffaire Duboeuf, as it was called,
was considered a serious scandal.
These scandals have turned some
people away from Beaujolais, which
is unfortunate. The crus are
respectable wines, especially for the
lighter dishes of autumn.
