children who passed through the doors of
her library room at Montrose School. She
loved to help others, particularly the young
and the old. At her home on Massey Circle,
Betty fed birds and nurtured whatever ani-
mal might wander into her presence. She
very much enjoyed bringing plants to life
and watching them grow, both throughout
her home and outside in her garden.
After leaving Massey Circle, Betty spent
her last years with loving assistance and
care from Patty and Elbie Thurman and
their Haven staff, to whom Betty's children
will be forever grateful.

children, Susie (Carter) Fletcher of
Fernandina Beach, Fla., Harry (Kathe)

projects resulting from fed-
eral stimulus money include
resurfacing on North 14th
and North Eighth streets, at
a cost of $600,000.
Jacobs said he was also
behind a rehabilitation
project for two taxiways at
the municipal airport.
Commissioners at the meet-
ing approved a bid for the
taxiway rehab project a
direct result of federal stim-
ulus money, according-to
Jacobs at a cost of $1.119
Jacobs said he was also
working on a final agreement
with the U.S. Postal Service
to acquire the historic post
office on Centre Street. A
draft agreement presented
by Jacobs to the city in June
required the city to renovate
the post office's space in the
building, and lease that space
back to the post office for $1
a year for 100 years. Those
terms, Jacobs said, are still
being negotiated. Jacobs'
partner Richard Scholz is
also going to Washington,
D.C., to work on an earmark
of $1.950 million for infra-
structure work on storm
drainage at the city water-
front, Jacobs said.
Bach said Jacobs provides
an invoice for $6,250 from
the city each month, which
he receives automatically.

Florida bear plan
GLE N GARDNER
/lotida News Connection
TAMPA- Bear populations in Florida have staged
a comeback in some areas and a new draft plan is
sparking debate on how best to keep that comeback
alive: Dave Telesco is the Bear Management Program
coordinator with the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. He says the plan features
a territorial approach to management.
"We'd have bear management units, so each area
that has a bear would potentially be managed differently
based on both the bear's needs, but as well as the com-
munities that are surrounding that bear population."
The Florida black bear is a threatened species
whose populations are expanding in some areas while
still very restricted in others. The draft plan is available
for public review and comment at www.MyFWC.
corn/Bear, along with a series of public hearings.
ILaurie Macdonald is the Florida director of
Defenders of Wildlife. In 1994 she was instrumental in
developing a black bear conservation program. She
believes the new draft plan is a great start.
"We are really pleased that the Wildlife Commission
has undertaken a comprehensive conservation plan for
the bear," but said it's a work in progress.
She says the real focus needs.to be education on
trash handling and other food issues to limit bear-

Cars, financing go retro
Is it just my impression, or is
retro getting more popular
every decade? Most successful
outcomes arise from someone
repeating a past winning prod-
uct or behavior. The car com-
panies have certainly been
rolling out modern copies of
1970's era cars like the Mustang
or the Challenger. A car that
opened as a phenom in 2001,
the PT Cruiser had its design
inspired from the 30's. Look for
more familiar nameplates and
styling cues from days gone by.
A classic '60's or '70's design
with modern technology is a
The 80 percent of car buyers
who do some type of financing
on their car purchase should be
aware that the financing land-
scape has gone retro in many
cases. The days of sign and
drive without putting anything
down are harder to find. Finan-
cing $33,000 on a car sticker-
ing for $28,000 isn't going to
happen. These are positive
developments that actually pro-
tect customers from an over-
heated credit market. It is
healthy to pay at least your taxes
and fees when you buy a car.
In Florida, that can easily be
$2,000-plus certain lenders offer,
and high credit score buyers
can qualify, to finance every-
thing if they choose.
Let's look at why now is a
good time to finance a car. Car
buying rates, like mortgages,
are the lowest I have seen in 35
years in the car business. If you
buy a new car, take the rebate,
unless there is a 0 percent offer
that trumps a comparison with
the rebate and market rate. The
rebate is immediate and the low
rate incentive takes the whole
term of the loan to realize. Let's
take an aver-
new car say
S $25,000 pur-
I~EFFER'S chase price.
Add tax and
,CORNER fees and arr-
... ive at approx-
RickKefer i matey
Kee $27,000. let's
go retro and put down $3,000.
We are now financing $24,000.
At a rate of 4.9 percent (better is
available, but this is a good esti-
mate), the payment is
$451/month. A more historical
rate over the last 30 years might
be more like 7.9 percent don't
be shocked if inflation kicks in
and this happens in a year or
two. At 7.9 percent, the payment
goes to $485/month. The inter-
est payback difference is $2,019.
Too many people overlook the
cost of money savings available
in today's market as an incentive
to buy a new or newer car.
Many people are getting to
the point of having a paid-for
car, which has its appeal. My
concern is that the previously
allocated car payment dollars
end up in a new budget item
and when it is time to buy a car,
there is no longer money avail-
able. Try to pay yourself a car
payment if yours is paid for and
youaren't buying now. Put $250-
300 in a dedicated automotive
Account towards a newer car.
Another upside to this account
is for unexpected repairs, since
most paid-off loans involve out-
of-warranty cars. Vehicles are a
big expense and a little plan-
ning can make things much eas-
ier to manage.

Each of us has a date with death
Each of us has a date with death. Cold
and pale, it lurks somewhere around a
corner, perhaps the next one, waiting
for us to come traipsing along, blissful-
ly unaware that the next breath will be our
last. Death is stealthy. Death is ruthlessly effi-
cient. Death leaves no survivors. It does not
discriminate, mowing down the lofty and the
lowly with the same scythe.
On a cool, New York evening of Dec. 8,
1980, it waited in the shadows of the entryway
of The Dakota, near Central Park in
Manhattan. It took the persona of nerdy Mark
David Chapman, armed not with a scythe, but
a Charter Arms .38-caliber revolver full of hol-
Flash back to earlier that evening. Chapman
waited outside The Dakota holding a new copy
of John lennon's just-released "Double
Fantasy" album. Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono
came along and Lennon saw Chapman stand-
ing there, clutching a copy of the album.
Ilennon took it from his hands and auto-
graphed it, politely asking Chapman when he
handed it back to him, "Is this all you want?"
Chapman just smiled and nodded. Lennon, per-
haps not realizing the paradox in his question
to Chapman, went his way, only to return five
hours later to keep his assigned date with
death. Chapman never gave peace a chance.
He did what death does successfully each time
it lashes out. In doing so, he forever silenced
the voice of a man who defined a generation.
John Winston Ono Lennon should've
turned 70 years old last week. Instead, he's
been dead 30 years. I got an email from a
friend reminding me on his birthday. It was
one of those mass emails that people send out
to everyone on their friends
list. "Happy Birthday, John," I
wrote. "Thanks for the music
and the memories."
John Lennon and Paul
McCartney didn't know when
they formed The Beatles that
they were making history.
Along with George Harrison
and Ringo Starr, they were
just four lads from working
stiff Liverpool families who
set out to make a living with
their music. Only a clairvoy-
ant or a prophet could've fore-
told what was to come.
There probably aren't too many people who
haven't been living under rocks who can't tell
you who The Beatles were. Their music is still
inspiring all kinds of musicians and likely will
be for a long time to come.
Lennon was the group's merry prankster.
Wry and quick of wit, he said what was on his
mind without regard to consequence.
McCartney tended toward sweeter, tamer vers-
es and songs. Lennon pushed the envelope of
creativity to its bursting point with frequently
bizarre lyrics that bordered on the nonsensi-
cal. Yet if you're paying attention, you'll realize
"The Walrus" is a reference to The Walrus.and

breaking news'story. The same question that
was on my lips was on everyone's lips: Why
would someone murder John Lennon? Yes, he
was goofy. Yes, he obviously had some issues.
Yes, he occasionally said outrageous things,
seemingly just to get under the skin of some.
But none of those are killing offenses in any-
one's book. Everyone tried to make sense of it
but no one could, not even-after Chapman
offered his weird explanation for his deeds.
The same question was repeated the world
over like a chorus. Why? Why? Why?
Maybe the answer to that goes back to
where this story started. Each of us has a date
with death. Most of us never know when that
date is till death gets its cold hands around our
necks and chokes off our breathing. But per-
haps Lennon was offered a rare peek at what
fate held in layaway for him.
S"Is this all you want?" he asked the assassin
who, five hours later, would pump four bullets
into his back. Perhaps Lennon knew there was
something more personal that Chapman want-
ed. And being a direct man, he just asked him
straightaway, as was his style.
"No longer riding on the merry-go-round,"
Lennon sings on one of the songs on that fate-
ful album. "I just had to let it go."

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
SIn response to a (Oct. 8) letter to
the News-Leader regarding the
endorsement of the Repiblican Party
of Barry Holloway, I would like to clar-
ify some inaccurate facts so people
will have the truth about county spend-
ing and taxes.
I contacted the county manager
and asked him for the details and here
is what I found:
According to the county manag-
er (Ted Selby) the $4 million the letter
writer states reflects an increase in
the budget includes a $7 million cash
carry forward from the previous budg-
et year. These are capital improve-
ment funds that are budgeted by road
improvements and other items that
have been budgeted but not yet
expended. When you make the deduc-
tion you actually end up with a budg-
et of $140 million, far below the pre-
vious levels. You can see these budget
numbers yourself at www.votehol-
lowaycom and check under "county
(Mr. Holloway's opponent) has
no business experience, no educa-
tional qualifications and no experience
managing the affairs of any size com-
pany that could remotely form a basis
for his understanding of the complex
budget issues. According to the
records at the Supervisor of Elections
office, George Spicer has changed par-
ties four times since 2004. This lack of
qualifications and instability should
concern many voters.
Mr. Spicer has never run for
elected office. Nor has he had any real
involvement that would suggest he is
active in his community. Mr. Spicer's
tax return shows.he made $1,800 in
charitable contributions last year and
while that is wonderful he would be
generous to support local groups, I
have never seen him attend or sup-
port any of the non profits and organ-
izations that form the backbone of our
way of life here in Nassau County.
Mr. Holloway ran for county com-
missioner in 2002, he was defeated
and then ran again in 2006 when he
was successful. Mr. Holloway has
served on the board of the Boys and
Girls Club, has been a member of the
Republican Executive Committee, has
donated time and money to many local
causes and supports many pro-busi-
ness groups in the county. Mr.
Holloway was a small business owner
and was in a senior management role
in the automotive industry before
becoming a full-time commissioner. I
would say Mr. Holloway has demon-
strated his involvement in the com-
Mr. Holloway led the repeal of
the gas tax, has worked with other
commissioners to pay off the landfill
debt and eliminate that annual assess-
ment, improved the bond rating of the
county and has paved 130 roads in the
last four years. Mr. Holloway has a
record that resulted in one of the low-
est tax rates of any of the counties in
Northeast Florida and has reduced
the size of government-last year from
316 employees to 304.
Like everyone else we are con-
cerned about people who say one
thing and do another. In Nassau
County we have a clear choice on Nov.
2 between a qualified, proven tax cut-
ter and a person who has shown us
that his primary interest is himself. I
will not get fooled this year by Mr.
Spicer and hope others will join me
in voting for Barry Holloway, the real
Robert Brown, Chairman
Nassau County Republican Party
Those not fortunate to attend the
presentation at the Peck Center spon-
sored by our local Tea Party, or
Patriots as I shall hereafter call them,
missed a golden opportunity to be
highly enlightened and entertainingly'
educated, and finally witness a very
rare example of local politics in action.
First, all hats off to our local
Patriots, whose role is notalways total-
ly understood, whose alleged motives
are often maligned, but whose contri-
bution to the upcoming election will
prove to be historic, both nationally
and locally. Their main purpose is edu-
cation and this event was an example
par excellence. We are so fortunate
to have as part of our community,
Messrs. (ohn) Crawford and (Jesse)
Duke. Their extraordinary talents
enrich all our lives with their deep
knowledge of our founding documents
presented in an entertaining manner.
What a resource, particularly for our
youth in attendance and how prescient
and timely of our Patriots to invite
them to speak!
What transpired next, I think, ini-
tiated as a result ofa Q and A session.
We now wore subjected to a wander-
ing display of "politics as usual" and
"speech-a-fy-ing." I was tempted to
leave because I didn't want the after-
glow of a most rewarding evening to
be dimmed. But something held me in
my seat not because I really wanted to
hear what was being said, but more for
the type of fascination we often get
when viewing the weird and bizarre.
What started as constituent commu-
nication with elected officials devolved
into raw partisan posturing including
identifying Sunday as the only day of
worship (obviously true only for
Christians perhaps he believes they
are his only constituents) sprinkled
with allusions none too subtle about
"his" candidate for county commis-
sioner. The only emotion I felt stronger
than amazement was embarrassment.
Bul while I was initially annoyed, it
began to dawn on me that what had
transpired did us all a wonderful favor.
It's not often that personal political
efforts are so transparent and reveal-
ing and, as a counter to our excellent-
ly presented front piece, it was like
/f/7 ./% www.caglecrtoons.com
MIKE KEEFETHE DENVER P05 P
saying "Well, that's the way our coun-
try started that's the way it is sup-
posed to be but now let me tell you
the way it really works."
I had initially thought maybe an
apology is due, to Messrs. Crawford
and Duke, to the Patriots and the rest
of the audience held captive whose
privilege (County Commissioner-Elect
Steve Kelley) presumed to abuse by
misappropriating an otherwise non-
partisan educational opportunity for
his own and his "friend's" gain. Or
maybe no apology is really needed
since what we had was a lesson of the
way things had been dreamed of and
the miracle that actualized that dream,
.followed with a case study of why we
must take those high values to heart
and be ever vigilant.
Upon reflection, while still embar-
rassed for those good citizens afore-
mentioned, the over all meeting was a
truly rare and unique set piece which
could not have been better accom-
plished if orchestrated.
And let me emphasize that the local
Patriots group has a policy of not
endorsing any candidate so imposing
upon this educational policy is even
Brian E. Downey
In defense ofGlenn
I believe that Glenn Beck is a sin-
cere and highly principled truth seek-
er, spotlighting serious issues that are
important in the debate about
On his show, Glenn is taking the
time to educate Americans on the his-
tory of the United States, much of
which has been inappropriately
revised or omitted from our current
school textbooks. He is alerting us to
the progressive/socialist agenda of
the Obama administration and urging
the nation to return to the principles
upon which America was founded, as
well as to seek a relationship with
one's God in these troubled times.
Glenn also takes the time to dis-
tinguish the facts, which he presents in
contrast to his personal conclusions
about such facts. Glenn does all of this
with a great sense of humility, love,
humor and occasionally a few tears.
Glenn Beck is not a Republican,
nor a Democrat. He is not pushing
either party's agenda, and often chal-
lenges both parties on the stances they
have taken. Glenn simply wants to edu-
cate listeners, so that they can make
informed decisions. He repeatedly asks
that viewers do their own homework,
and not simply quote him or take his
views on issues without doing research
of their own.
In reference to an earlier contribu-
tor's comments ("Mind Boggling,"
Voice ofthe People Oct. 8), Glenn Beck
does have a red telephone on his desk
with a number to which only the White
House has access. The While House
has called him exactly.one time. This
was to correct the title of one of the
multitude of "czars" on Obama's staff.
They are watching, and they are not
disputing any of the facts that Glenn is
putting forth on Obama's progres-
sive/socialist agenda or the back-
grounds of the self-proclaimed social-
ists on his staff.
At the "Restoring Honor" rally on
the Mall in Washington, D.C., on Aug.
28, Glenn brought together well over
half a million people people of all
racesand creeds. We met at the steps
of the Lincoln Memorial to honor God,
our military heroes and Dr. Martin
Luther King's "content of character"
message. Alveda King, MLK's own
niece, gave a rousing speech to thun-
derous applause. Christian ministers
and priests, Jewish rabbis and Muslim
imams linked arms and prayed togeth-
er. There was a pervading atmosphere
of peace, good will, courtesy and
respect on the Mall that day. After the
event, the Mall area was completely
clean. Over half a million people and no
trash! The people who attended that
rally love and respect the country that
we have been so blessed to inherit.
Their wish is to honor, preserve and
If you believe in a God or princi-
pled ethics, the Constitution, limited
government, the fiee enterprise sys-
tem and the greatness of America you
might wish to tune in to the Glenn
Beck Show, weekdays at 5 p.m. on Fox
News, and judge for yourself!
I believe that we have much work to
do in educating ourselves, and in cre-
ating a future for America that is based
solidly on its founding principles.
These principles have stood the test of
time and produced great achievements
in the past. Only now are these prin-
ciples being subverted while our
nation's fate hangs in the balance.

FRIDAY. October 15.2010/News-Lcadcr
Trains, bandits and the shield of God's word
Suddenly, and seemingly out of
nowhere, God's voice came to my
friend. Though it wasn't an audible
voice, it was :i,,i it -.- a clear one.
"No weapon formed against you
shall prosper," the Iord said to him.
Confused and concerned by what he
had heard, Francis, that's my friend,
boarded the train and headed to his
seat. His destination was Shillong,
India; the far northeastern part of the
country. Little did he know that in a
very short time the train that he
boarded would turn into a bloodbath
complete with masked men, gun-
shots and screaming people.
Though he was a relatively new
Christian, Francis had enough sense
to take the words that he had heard
and turn them into a prayer. Even
though nothing had happened yet,
that prayer saved his life.
- "1 don't know
why you're telling
Smnle this, God, but I
,agree with you; no
S weapon formed
against me shall
prosperr" he said as
he sat down and
slid his bag under
the tattered seat.
NOTES once the train start-
ed moving, and the
bandits decided to
Pastor launch their attack,
Rob Goyle nmy friend respond-
ed just like every-
one else. He was terrified. With gun-
shots. i.1.il;i :at the back of the
train and people screaming in sheer
terror, Francis stood frozen while one
of the bandits made his way straight
toward him. His heart was about to
come out of his chest. Then, right in
the middle of it all, the words that
God had spoken to him earlier came
back to his mind, "No weapon
formed against you shall prosper."
Instantly something changed.
Though still surrounded by fear,
something else had stu'rounded him
as well. God's word had become a
shield for him. As the masked man
approached him waving his gun and
shouting commands, suddenly he
stopped, stared at him for a moment
and then turned and went the other
way. The sparing of his life was noth-
ing short of a miracle.
By the time everything was done,
the news of the attack spread
throughout the entire region; four
people dead, several wounded and all
the passengers robbed; except for
Francis, that is. Though I can't ex-
plain all the reasons that hi,; -. hap-
pen to some people and not to others,
I do know that God's word is a shield
to those who hear it and embrace it.
Here are just a couple of verses of
scripture that speak to that end:
Psalm 119:114, "You are my hid-
ing place and my shield: I hope in
Proverbs 30:5, "Every word of
God is pure: He is a shield unto them
that put their trust in Him." And,
Genesis 15:1, "After these things the
word of the Lord came unto Abram in
a visidh, saying, 'Fear not, Abram: I
am your shield, and your exceeding
oIoking back, it's been about 10
years ago since my wife and I first
met Francis. In that time, God has
done some amazing things in his life.
He's now married, has two beautiful
children and continues to serve on
the pastoral staff of a church in
Mumbai, India, that has upwards of
95,000 members in that city alone.
SNo doubt, the lessons he learned
that dlay about hearing God's voice
and applying His words have served
him well over the years, and hopeful-
ly are an encouragement to you who
read this. I leave you with the verse
that God used to save his life:
"No weapon that is formed against
you shall prosper; and every tongue
that shall rise against you in judg-
ment you shall condemn. This is the
heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and their righteousness is of Me,
says the Ixrd." Isaiah 54:17.

TALIAHASSEE Dry con-
ditions in at least some parts
of the state coupled with a long-
range forecast calling for a sig-
nificant drying cycle threaten a
potentially severe wildfire sea-
son, warns Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H. Bronson.
The culprits are a lack of any
major tropical storm activity so
far this season and the existence
of La Nina conditions, which
are expected to continue until at
least early next year.
"This weather cycle calls for
a warmer and drier winter here
in Florida, and when you com-
bine that with the lack of any
real rainfall associated with trop-
ical systems so far this season,
we.have to expect a tough wild-
fire season ahead," Bronson
During the recently com-
pleted fiscal year, Bronson's
Division of Forestry reported
a record volume of prescribed
or controlled burning both in
state forests and on private land
to reduce the flammable fuels in
forests and on timber lands
should wildfires occur.
But citizens, too, can do their
part to protect themselves and
their property, Bronson said.
The three most important
tips to protect homes from wild-
Clean roofs and gutters to
eliminate debris, including
leaves, twigs, pine needles and
Keep the area directly next
to the home free of anything
that can easily catch fire, includ-
ing flammable plants. They can
be replaced with less flammable
Maintain and keep the
landscape within 30 feet of a

is a yellow maggot, grows in
size as they tunnel through

Far from home
At a recent meeting, the Fernandina Beach Rotary Club
was pleased to welcome the two exchange students being
sponsored by the club for the coming year: Hanka
Nouskova and Herly Hadi. Herly traveled to Fernandina
from his home in West Java, Indonesia. He explained that
Indonesia is made up of more than 17,500 islands with
some 500 different ethnic groups. He shared a number of
photos from his homeland including Bali Island, several
ancient Buddhist temples and Komodo Island, infamous
Sas home to the giant lizards known as Komodo Dragons.
Hanka, who is from the Czech Republic, shared photos
and information about her hometown, Tabor, founded in
1420. She noted that high school in the U.S. is much dif-
ferent than in her homeland, where students take 15 dif-
ferent subjects and the class schedule changes each day.
Both Hanka and Herly have already become very involved
in local high school activities, including football, volleyball
and the Interact Club, and are looking forward to their
year in Fernandina Beach. From left are Fernandina Beach
Rotary Club President Trip Clark with Hanka and Herly.

V irginia Tech has already
had a memorable sea-
son and it's not even to
Ihle half-way point. The
Hokies lost their opening game to
Boise State on national television.
Then, they suffered the disgrace
of losing to Division II James
Madison and, this past weekend,
it got even more unusual.
Virginia Tech left guard Greg
Nosal missed his initial block as
quarterback 'I'yrod Taylor,
dropped back to pass. This sent
'aylor scrambling and the 6-foot-
6, 293-pound Nosal tried to throw
a block on the oncoming defen-
sive end, when his pinkie finger
gol caught in the defender's face-
mask and, at first, felt like what hi
described as "a really bad cut."
I le was wearing gloves and
noted blood pooling in the tip of
the glove, so he just kept putting
pressure on it between plays in
order to stop the bleeding. After
the Hokies turned the ball over
on downs, he trotted off the field
and removed his glove to seek

"Finally, as were walking to the
X-ray room, I'm like, 'Why do they
want to know? Did my finger fall
off?' And he's like, 'I'll tell you
when you're laying down,'" Nosal
lie was told that the end of his
finger was missing.l The coaches
were alerted to the nature of the
injury and actually went on (the

could be saved.

For those willing to pay

WMA provides hunting
opportunities during eight
months of the year: Archery
runs through Oct. 24; muzzle-
loading gun season runs from
Oct. 30 through Nov. 7; gener-
al gun season is from Nov. 13,
2010, through Jan. 9, 2011;
small game is from Jan. 10
through March 6, 2011;
spring turkey season runs
from March 19 through April
24, 2011; and trapping can be
done from Jan. 10 through
March 11 2011. To apply for a
permit, go to MyFWC.com.
Recreational use permits
are designed to provide more
revenue to landowners in the
WMA system. Money set
aside by the FWC to compen-
sate those landowners for
hunting on their lands was
not sufficient to'compete with
private hunting leases.
Rather than have WMAs
drop out of the system, the
FWC offers recreational use
Permits. Fees collected from
these permits supplement the
compensation for private
landowners, keeping their
lands open to public hunting.
Except for hunting, permit
holders and their spouses or
dependent children may par-
ticipate in other activities on
designated WMAs. Only per-
mit holders and one depend-
ent child (under age 16) may
hunt. If spouses or more than
one dependent child (under
age 16) wish to hunt, they
must purchase a recreational
use permit. Recreational use
permits also include a man-
agement area permit when
hunting public lands not in
the recreational use program.

cations online at https://

When Les DeMerle's opening
drum riff kicked his big band into
a torrid arrangement of "Opus
One" to begin the Steve March
Torm6 concert last Friday, the
bar was set high for what turned
out to be a hhrd swinging week-
end of great music at the 2010
Amelia Island Jazz Festival.
Along with Torm6's person-
able song styling and an impecca-
ble set from The Ramsey Lewis
Trio Saturday, both at the First
Baptist Church Auditorium, plus
solid pre- and post-headliner
shows each night, this year's fes-
tival took a another giant step for-
ward in its quest to become one
of the world's finest music events.
"We couldn't be happier," said
DeMerle, the festival's artistic
director, as he.left the stage fol-
lowing the traditional Sunday
Dixieland brunch, "and we look
forward to taking this festival to a
higher level as we move ahead."
Following an animated rendi-
tion of "I1Get A Kick Out Of You"
by vocalist Bonnie Eisele, Torm6
hit the stage for a rousing take on
"Sweet Georgia Brown." Backed
by DeMerle's orchestra, which
conquered a string of intricate
and foot-tapping arrangements,
Torm6 smoothly'delivered songs
from his father Mel's repertoire.
'We plan to keep building the
festival into an -
event because Amelia Island
is second to none in its
support of the arts.'
