A few members of the golf com-
munity attended Tuesday's meeting
but did not speak. At previous meetings
there had been some opposition to the
plan by local golfers.
Privatization of the city's marina,
golf course and airport was initially
brought up during a city goal-setting
meeting in June 2009. A golf course
evaluation committee was formed by
City Manager Michael Czymbor in
January to assess the business struc-

golf course has a debt of $250,000 annu-

was created in 2007-8, but the small

Hodges said after the meeting that
she was aware that people's own cir-

Melissa Bodden clutches
medical records that describe
the final moments of her broth-
er's life. It's all she has apart
from his death certificate.
Franklin "Ray" Bodden was
shot twice by Nassau County
Sheriff's Deputy Ernie Cole
during a traffic stop in
Callahan Sept. 11.
The 39-year-old was riding
his motorcycle with friend
Anthony Michael Weeks, 31,
when Cole pulled him over in
the parking lot near Y.B. Slim
Pool Hall and Grill in Callahan.
David Bright, a NCSO
employee, was in the deputy's
car on a civilian ride-along and
was reported to have shouted
something to Cole shortly
before shots were fired.
Bodden has poured over
the details since obtaining the
. records three weeks ago. She
:recalled the first time she read
"I was devastated," Bodden
said Monday. "I couldn't hold
myself up. I can't believe he
lay there, face down."
The investigation contin-
ues and family members still
do not know all of the details
leading up to the shooting.
Nassau County Assistant
State Attorney Wesley White
said Tuesday that the case has
been reviewed by the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement and has been
presented to State Attorney
"FDLE's investigation has
been-. placed before the state
attorney for her review," White
said, adding that he did not
know how long the review
Despite rumors indicating
otherwise, Cole remains on
paid administrative leave,
according to .NCSO Sheriff
"He is not back to work,"
Seagraves said Tuesday.
"He's still an employee here
and he's still on administrative
About three weeks ago, the
Bodden family obtained Ray's
medical reports to expedite
the investigation so that FDLE
investigators would not have to
wait for a court order to access
ril.,rmn alijr ". "'.
The Sept 11. report shows
that Ray arrived at Shands
Jacksonville via Nassau
County Fire Rescue at 10:35
p.m. He had "been down at
least 20 minutes" and received
CPR from NCFR for 25 min-,
utes, as noted in the report.
S Ray had a gunshot wound
mid-chest and an exit wound in
his back. He also had a gun-
shot wound to the left bicep,
with no other exit wounds
After his arrival, hospital
staff continued to administer
CPR. They made two incisions
to relieve fluid build-up inside
the chest, but by 10:26 p.m.
he had received "pastoral min-
istry, prayer and presence"
from a chaplain. At 10:40 p.m.
he was pronounced dead.
Bodden said that prior to
talking to the funeral director,
she and her family had
assumed that-Ray had been

shot twice in the chest. She
added that her brother had
facial bruises, a broken nose,
scratches to his face and
asphalt fragments embedded
in his scalp.
Since her brother's death,
Bodden and her two children'
have moved into her parents'
home. Ray had lived there, tak-
ing care of his parents and
helping with repairs around
Bodden still questions the
timeline prior to learning of
Ray's death about 3:40 a.m.
Sept. 12. She said FDLE inves-
tigators told her he was pulled
over between 9:25 and 9:30
p.m., about an hour prior to
his arrival at the hospital. A
911 dispatch call was received
at 9:57 p.m. according to the
"They have yet to tell us
why he was pulled over,"
She questions why her
brother was shot twice and
why his personal effects,
including a gold nugget ring,
cell phone and driver's license,
were not returned. His motor-
cycle is back home, but several
pairs of sunglasses, gloves, a
leather jacket, a change of
clothes and a water bottle that
Bodden said was on the motor-
cycle have not been returned.
A platinum ring she now wears
around her neck on a chain,
however, was returned.
Ray's mother, Anna
Bodden, seeks justice for the
death of her son, who she said,
did not even carry a pock-
etknife. The family has
retained two attorneys if need-
"We haven't forgotten and
we're not going to let anyone
else forget it," she said.
Bodden continues to imagine
the horror of her brother's
final hour from the time he lay
in the parking lot until he was
transported to the hospital.
She said an FDLE investi-
gator told her he was still
unable to share what the video
camera inside the patrol car

difficult for us to watch,"
Melissa said. "I have to see it.

New breast center supplements Baptist Nassau services
For the News Leader
On Oct. 11, just in time for nation-
al Breast Health Awareness Month,
Baptist Health unveiled the beautiful
new Robert and Margaret Hill Breast
Center in Jacksonville. This state-of-
the-art facility offers a full range of
diagnostic procedures and counseling
for women whose screening mammo-
grais indicate suspicious tissue
changes, or who have breast cancer

Excluding cancers of the skin,
breast cancer is the most common can-
cer among women, accounting for
nearly 1 in 4 cancers diagnosed in U.S.
women. The American Cancer Society
recommends that women between the
ages of 20 and 39 have clinical breast
examinations by a health professional
every three years. After age 40 (or ear-
lier if recommended by your doctor),
women should have screening mam--
mograms every year, even if they have
no signs of breast cancer, to locate
abnormalities that might indicate the
presence of tumors. These can be eas-
ily scheduled at Baptist Nassau where
certified mammography technologists
perform over 100 screening mamino-
grams every week, says Traci

"We use sensitive new digital scan-
ners that make the procedure as accu-

the patient is notified and an appoint-
ment is made within 1-2 days for follow-

which may include diagnostic mam-

"This process of having all mam-
mograms analyzed by specialists in a
central location was established sev-
eral years ago and it's been working
extremely well," Moore says. "What's
new is that the Hill Breast Center is so
bright, spacious and soothing for anx-
ious patients who must have follow-up
procedures." 'Fewer than 20 percent
of patients screened at Baptist Nassau
have a suspicious mammogram result
that leads to further study, she adds. If
transportation to the Hill Breast Center
is a burden to the patient, Baptist
Nassau's mammography staff will
arrange for free cab service. This is
provided by a grant through the Susan
G. Komen Foundation.
The Hill Breast Center also pro-
vides counseling, referrals to cancer
treatment specialists and a wealth of
information on treatment options. "We
are fortunate to have many qualified
surgeons, radiation oncologists and
cancer specialists in our community, so
most patients who need treatment can
get it close to home," Moore says.
There are also support groups and
educational programs. For informa-
tion, call Baptist Nassau's Mammogra-
phy Department at 321-3546.
Physician referral is not required to
schedule a screening mammogram
but is recommended, and most insur-
ance plans cover annual screenings.
Appointments can be scheduled
between 7:30 'a.m. and 6 p.m. on
Monday and Tuesdays, and 8:30 a.m.

S.I us feel that the deck is stacked against vot-
I -rs by big business and many politicians.
Amendment 4 simply gives us a seat at the

-hanges impacting our community's future.
Opponents of Amendment 4 are saying that
voters are not sophisticated enough to under-

Comprehensive growth plans are too complex
ior voters, yet we are asked to vote on munici-
pal bond issues and changes to city charters.
Some politicians may know even less about
Comprehensive plans than some of the voters,
because the plans are complex, and when faced
with complexity, we all are capable of making
bad decisions. Mistakes, when implemented,
can have dramatic, long-lasting consequences
for our community's future. Amendment 4 isn't
about understanding the complexities of land,
use plans but about making decisions concern-
ing land use changes that impact our quality of
life. I think we can figure that one out.
Our elected officials have done a reasonably
good job over the years of making the right
decisions regarding community growth, and I
have faith that, in most cases, they will continue
to do so. I am for Amendment 4 so citizens will
have an opportunity to vote in those rare occa-
sions when we feel strongly that commission-
ers' decisions may not be in the community's
best interests. It takes only three out of five
commissioners to approve a developer's
requested change in our community's compre-
hensive growth plan.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that a
commissioner would necessarily vote in favor of
a developer's requested change just because
someone might have made big contributions to
help the commissioner get elected. But based
on my observations of the pervasiveness of cor
ruption in general, and specifically politics in
Florida, it is important for citizens to remain
vigilant and to be able to act before a bad devel-
opment can be initiated. The alternatives are
not viable: voting out our representative after *
the fact leaves the bad development in place; a
lawsuit to stop an approved project is expensive'
for concerned citizens to initiate, as it is also for
communities to defend against.
Contrary to what Amendment 4 opponents
are saying, most decisions involving compre-
hensive land tise plan changes will be routine,
few in number and not controversial. Therefore,
voters will simply vote in most cases in favor of
the commission's decisions. It doesn't sound
too difficult to me. When strong opposition
exists, let's vet the issues, discuss the pros and
cons from a community perspective and then
vote. That's why A4 is important.
As an example of poor planning locally look
,t the A1A corridor from Amelia Island to 1-95.
This is a failed artery for evacuation in the
event of a hurricane. In spite of that, develop-
ment has been permitted that continues to add
more traffic to this vital road to safety. And, the
natural beauty of this highway is being turned
into one long strip mall. The clay may come, as
it has in most poorly developed areas of Florida,
when few if any trees will remain, all in the
name of jobs and lowering taxes as the oppo-
nents of Amendment 4 would lead you to
If rampant development is the opponent's
answer to plenty of jobs and low taxes, how do
they explain this: after the largest and longest
span of growth in Florida history, why are we in
such a mess with some of the highest foreclo-
sure rates, high unemployment, empty condos
and shopping malls and higher taxes? Sprawl is
not the solution for jobs and lower taxes.
Nassau County has grown over the past 20
years but our taxes have also grown. Unbridled
growth actually increased our taxes. I'm not
advocating a no-growth policy. Let's grow in a
planned and sustainable manner. The "build,
baby, build" method of growth advocated by
Amendment 4's opponents is seriously flawed
and not in the best interests of our community.
Sufficient property throughout Florida is
already designated for planned growth for the
foreseeable future, leading to thousands of jobs
for future development without the need for any
land use changes. Much approved land is avail-
able for businesses to come to Florida and
Nassau County to create jobs without the need
Opponents also say that Amendment 4 will
lead to more lawsuits. Actually it will decrease
lawsuits. Passing Amendment 4 takes the bur-
den of potential lawsuits from commissioners
and places it in the court of public opinion in
the voting booth.
Beware of anyone who uses scare tactics as
a reason to vote against something. Fear
appeals to our most basic instincts instead of
making the case for us to make decisions for
our highest and best needs.
Amendment 4 is not about "no growth" but
about giving voters a place at the table when
projects of importance are being decided about
the quality of life in their communities. It is
designed to encourage communities to grow
within their existing comprehensive plans in
order to achieve the best outcomes for the com-
munity as a whole rather than for the benefit of
a few. Vote for Amendment 4!

SBusted at the hootchie-cootchie show
A utiumn always makes me think about
carnivals and county fairs. These dry
chilly evenings of October evoke
memories of the combined aromas of
sawdust, livestock, cotton candy and corn
dogs. I can close my eyes and still see the fair's
calling card, the brightly lit double Ferris
wheel that was visible halfway across town.
There were freak shows, where people with all
sorts of strange physical conditions were on
display. I remember one gentleman called Jack
the Giant. He was about eight feet tall. The
other kids were scared of him but he was real-
ly gentle. He let me put a half dollar through
his wedding ring to illustrate how big Jhis fin-
But way off at the back of the carnival lot
was another sort of show. If you're of a cerlait
age, you might know what I mean. We just
called it the hootchie-cootc.hie show. Yep, right
smack dab in the middle of church going,
Bible reading, God fearing, rural South
Georgia was a canvas circus tent where ladies
danced au natural the terms ladies and danc-
ing being somewhat exaggerated.
You couldn't go in the hootchie-coolchie
show unless you were an adult. Deputies and
carnival roustabouts chased away curious
teenage boys desirous of getting a look at
naked pronounced nekkid female flesh. As
we would eventually learn, there were other
reasons for keeping blabber-mouthed teenaged
boys away from the hootchie-cootchie show.
I remember one afternoon as a boy of about
13. Some of us were playing football in an
empty lot in our neighborhood when a kid
named Johnny wheeled up on his bicycle,
excited and out of breath.
"Hey, guys, did y'all know about this here
t i ent at the fair and ladies
dance in it without pants on?"
.7 Johnny was known to be
an aisle short in the smarts
S- department. No fooling,
Johnny, we said in unison.
V T 'ell us some more big news.
Ahhh, but Johnny did have
big news. See, he had an
older brother who was some-
CUPOF thing of a hood. He heard his
JOE brother and somerfriends
-. talking about a way they
found to get into the
Joe Palmer hootchie-cootchie show. We
listened raptly as Johnny, who
achieved celebrity status that very day,
unveiled (he plan.
The ncxt evening, four of us who were bold-
er than the others decided to give Johnny's
plan a try. It was sheer genius. All we had to do
was bribe the wino carnie who guarded the
back perimeter and crawl in beneath the can-
vas. "You kids get caught, I don't know nuthin,"
he warned us.
But as we approached the tent, we saw
1)eputy T who lived-in our neighborhood. He
saw us and gave us The Look, causing us to fall
back and regroup. A few minutes later, the
barker said the show was starting and the men
gathered in the dark outside the tent paid their
money and went in. Deputy T followed. We
hustled around to the rear of the tent, lifted a
flap and crawled into the dark, reeking of body
odol, whiskey and cheap cologne. The barker
came on stage and introduced the star billing,

brunette and wore an outfit that looked like a
three-piece Hawaiian print shirt, which she
began divesting of to tinny sounding music,
bumps, grinds and cheers of the men, Deputy
T included. We craned our necks for a better
look and all of a sudden, Johnny blurted out,
"Hey, that ain't no High-Waiian princess. That's
one a them boopsy gals that live down behind
the junkyard. My daddy says they're looser
than the wheels on a Piggly Wiggly buggy."
Deputy T appeared at our sides and shined
his huge flashlight in our faces, mentally regis-
tering each and every one of us by name,
address, phone number and daddy's name.
One of my buddies bolted and slithered like a
snake beneath the tent, vanishing into the
night, howling like a siren.
Deputy T looked at our stricken faces and
smiled. "Looks like we got ourselves a standoff
here, fellas. Tell me, who was it you said you
saw here tonight?"
"Nobody, Deputy T, sir," we bleated as one.
"We wasn't even here."
Then we turned and skedaddlec back
under the tent flap into the darkness. It's been
43 years since and I still haven't squealed.
Folks would be real surprised to know who
some of Princess Leilu's admirers were,
VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Stick to education
Although I am a longtime resident
of Nassau County, I have paid little
attention in the past to the activities of
the Nassau County School Board I
neither have nor ever have had chil-
dren in the county education system.
1 pay my taxes, complain to who-
ever will listen -"usually no one, and
move on. However the recent (to me
and likely many others) revelation of
school board plans to establish an on-
site clinic for school system employees,
retirees and dependents got my atten-
tion ("Free health clinic plan draws
fire," Oct. 6).
Among other things:
The.contract seems to have been
drawn up in haste and was to be dis-
cussed and voted on at a poorly adver-
tised and attended, minimally covered
school board meeting held at Hilliard
Elementary School instead of the reg-
ular meeting site on Atlantic Avenue.
The initial budgeted amount of
.i ., ,, ,, 1, '-"',9,000 intended to
S,,_..i ..n ii n l, ii- apd equipipinrg the
clinic would likely, as with many gov-
ernment contracts, experience cost
overruns. So, taxpayers plan for at
least a million.
Per the contract, it seems the board
(read taxpayers) would still be liable for
certain damages, such as high mal-
practice awards and costs for certain
services "yet to be quoted."
Further, it would appear that all
costs not specified in the contract with
the proposed provider will be passed
on to the board (again, taxpayers).
In addition, the board declined to
defer discussion/action on this pro-
posal until the newly-elected school
board member could be sworn in,
despite a specific request for the board
to do so.
It would seem to be to be more sen-
sible for the school board to establish
a participatory health care program
for its employees that made use of
existing local medical facilities in the
county, stay out of the health care busi-
ness and stick to its primary respon-
sibility to educate the children of

Stop the rhetoric
I have been inundated with rhetoric
from the conservatives running for
office, bashing the current adminis-
tration's attempts to solve our current
economic woes. I presume that most of
them studied Political Science in col-
lege, and that the economic environ-
ment between the years 1928 to 1938
was studied at length.
Industry does not enlarge its work
force in response to lower taxes or
larger net incomes. In fact, the com-
panies with large cash surpluses are
currently busy enlarging their enter-
prises with takeovers or mergers.
Industry will only gear up when
they sense an increase in demand for
their products, and lowering taxes for
the currently employed will not gen-
erate sufficient impetus to accomplish
During the early '30s, the govern-
ment wisely saw that the only way to
create an increase in demand that was
large enough to entice the industrial
community to expand was for the pub-
lic works section to embark on road
building, conservation and dam con-
struction on a national level. This gave
rise to the WPA, CCC and TVA organ-
izations. Incidentally, all of this work
was necessary to accommodate the
country's expanding population.
I am retired and not up-to-date on
national projects that could be
addressed on a practical basis.
However, I have read that a study has
found that 25 percent of the major
bridges in the country need to be
replaced or enlarged to accommodate
today's traffic flow. Surely, there must
be other worthy projects that only the
government can undertake. This will
create jobs for the unemployed and
jump-start the economy.
Incidentally, I am a moderate, reg-
istered Republican, but nol one who
embraces greed as an accepted family

Feeding our brains
It's been enlightening to read the
thoughts expressed in previous letters
to the editor about media sources.
Between FOX, MSNBC and CNN, we
know who is right and who is left. But
where does that leave the rest of us, the
silent majority? There are many
sources beyond mainstream cable
media where guests don't shout at one
another and present experts in sub-
jects that relate to our critical issues.
Our First Amendment rights entitle
everyone to their opinions, but it has
become more and more difficult to dis-
cern opinion from fact when taking in
news and information. And it is essen-
tial that we know how to do so.
The growing polarization across
the country is counterproductive to
our ability to work together to solve
problems. It's certainly present in pol-
itics and increasingly true in our neigh-
borhoods and families as well. How
much of this polarization is caused by
just tuning in to a single source for
information? What are we missing indi-
vidually and collectively by not seeking
out facts, as well as contrasting ideas
and opinions? How long will we allow
the resulting deadlock to get in the
We all make choices of what to feed
our brains. Broadening our sources
andl growing our understanding are
steps we can take to avoid being
hooked by theatrics. While traveling
abroad recently, engaged by others in
conversations about the pressing
issues facing the United States, we
essentially heard confidence in
"American greatness." We have accom-
plished some amazing things in our
brief history and stand for some pow-
erful ideals. Will we prove our great-
ness once again? I hope so. The oppor-
tunity certainly stands before us.

Put family first
I lived in Fernandina for years rais-
ing my children. I still have two boys,
grandchildren who stayed there to
make Fernandina their home. I keep
up with all the news through the News-
Leader, and still have many friends and
family as well who live there.
Today I fell compelled to write and
ask everyone (especially teenagers)
to take extra precautions on the road-
ways this holiday season as well of
course as always.
I am asking you to do this in
remembrance of my daughter, Lazara
Landin, who lost her life on US 17 in
August 2007. She was only 18 years
old and left behind her whole family as
well as an infant daughter and the love
of her life. None of us will ever be the
same. I never knew my daughter had
so many friends, until I noticed there
was standing room only at her funeral.
Which comes to my second request,
Live each day as if it is your last, hug
your kids as they go out the door, no
matter how mad you are at them, it
might be the last time you see them.
Children! Hug your parents, even if
your friends are watching, kiss grand-
ma good-bye when she is leaving.
Everybody, put family first in your life.
In the end, they will always be there for
you when your friends, acquaintances
will not, or won't.
And for those of you who knew
Lazara Landin, buckle up and make
sure everyone else does whether
you are the driver or passenger going
around the corner or driving
miles away. Do it for Lazara! Her
birthday comes up on Nov. 16. She
would have been 22 years old but she
was gone in the blink of an eye at the
age of 18.
I wish everyone a safe, happy holi-
day season. And Lazara, we'll remem-
ber you always!

Family, friends gather to remember Faison
As tears embraced what God
Would share, pictures,impaired
through the clouds, fading the
world beyond all care, through
silence foreboding shoals.
Great tears cascaded to the earth.
Smoke spiraled free as the light of God
brought second birth through faith on
Family and friends joined together
recently to share in the memories of Dr.
Joseph Lewis Faison, a humanitarian
and philanthropist whose philosophy of
life was a service to God through serv-
ice to mankind.
Faison, the son of the late very well-
known Lewis and Ira Pearl Myers-
Faison, graduated from Peck High
School with the class of 1959. After grad-
uation he attended Gibbs Jr. College in
St. Petersburg and received' an A.A.
degree in biology in 1961. He continued
his education in 1963 at Tennessee A&I
State University and received his B.S. .
degree with honors in pre-medicine biol-
ogy. In 1966 he received his master of
science degree in zoology from Texas
He was an instructor of biology at.
Grambling State University from 1965-8.
After receiving his doctorate of medi-
cine in 1974 from the University of
Michigan School of Medicine, Faison
was inducted into the U.S. Air Force
Medical Corp. At Keesler Air Force
Base, Biloxi, Miss., he served as chief of
the general practice clinic and chief of
Sthe emergency room from 1974-9.
He was the first African-American to
serve as clinic chief at
Keesler Air Force base
and was honorably dis-
charged in 1979 with
... the rank of major from
Sthe Air Force.
He began private
practice in family medi-
cine in July 1979 in
Gulfport, Miss., for
NOWAND about 35 years.
THEN Serving on the medical
__ .... staff at Memorial
Hospital, Garden Park
Maybelle Medical Center, he had
Kirkland' medical privileges at
several nursing homes,
medical director for
several hospice companies and was one
of the first medical directors of the
Harrison County Sickle Cell Foundation.
In 2008 he became the medical director
of the Harrison County Adult and
Juvenile Detention Center.
He was a member and has affiliations
with professional organizations such as
the NAACP, Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity,
Mississippi Chapter Multiple Sclerosis
Foundation and the Rectitude Maisonic
Lodge #323. He also was the stepson of
Sis. Irma Lee Faison.
Born in Fernandina Beach, he spent
his childhood years in St. Marys, Ga.,
where his mother's family lives today.
His uncle, the Rev. Marcelle G. Myers
coordinated the service for Faison.
Words of expression were given by
other friends and family members
including the Rev. M.G. Myers, the Rev.
post office. Bring a bag
lunch, beverage, hat and
bug spray. Children are wel-
come and there is no fee.

FRIDAY. October 22.2010/News-Leader
Hitting, missing and walking by faith
"Crack." Both the sound and the
feeling is one I'll never forget. Up to
that point, no one on the team paid
much attention to me. That day,
things changed; at least for a while.
It happened in the late 1970s and
I was playing baseball for the Cubs -
Little league, of course. I don't know
why, but as a kid, all the sports
e cams I ever joined were never very
good. I suppose I had no reason to
complain, seeing how at best I was
only a mediocre- player myself.
looking back, that's probably why
everyone was so shocked the day I
hit the baseball out of the park. The
feeling of running those bases, and
having the crowd jump to their feet,
is one I've tucked away in a very spe-
cial place in my
now and then I like
to pull the memory
out and just enjoy
when I play back
the whole film of
what happened that
day, it's not all
good. After my infa-
mous home run,
the next time I got
up to bat, things
went back to nor-
mal. With everyone
sitting on the edge of their seats, and
the outfielders backed up to the
fence expecting me to hit another
home run, I struck out. Oh well,
though short-lived, my home run
experience was still glorious.
The whole thing reminds me of
two of life's important lessons- how
to handle times of prosperity and
how to handle times when things
come up short. Truth is, at some
point, it's a lesson we all need to
learn. Even the great apostle Paul
had to learn how to live on both
sides of the fence.
Philippians 4:11-13 gives his
account: "... for I have learned, in
whatsoever state I am, therewith to
be content. I know how to be abased,
and I know how to abound: every-
where and in all things I am instruct-
ed both to be full and to be hungry,
both to abound and to suffer need. I
can do all things through Christ
which strengthens me."
I find it interesting that though
most of us are spending our lives
striving to hit the ball out of the park,
God seems more interested with the
attitude with which we are living our
lives. For some, handling success is
no problem, but when it comes to
dealing with failure, they come
unglued. For others, failure seems to
be a way of life, and dealing with suc-
cess is a major challenge. According
to the verses we just read, the
answer to both problems is found in
Jesus Christ. "I can do all things
through Christ who strengthens
me. (Philippians 4:13)
Like preaching sermons and writ-
ing newspaper articles, some days
it's happening and some days it's not.
For me, and I'm sure you can plug in
your own life, the real question is, do
I stay in the game regardless? I
believe that's what God is most inter-
ested in. Whether we are up or
down, in or out, hitting the ball out of
the park or missing everything we
swing at, God measures our success
by the faith with which we continue
to live our lives.
How wonderful it is to know that
He lives on both sides of the fence.

what they might be called?

BeckyJordi appear to be a
ting on the breeze. There are
other common cultivars of G.
lindheimeri such as Corrie's
Gdld, Pink Cloud and
Crimson Butterflies, which
may be found at your local
plant nursery. The cultivated
ornamental gaura plants listed
above range in heights from 2
to 4 feet. It would be impor-
tant to know the potential '
mature height as the shorter
ones should be planted in
front of the taller ones.
The wildflower photo you
sent me might be Slender
Gaura or Slender Stalk
Beeblossom, Gaura filipes. It
is difficult to be certain but
most of these plants are com-
monly known as beeblossom.
I took a photograph ofa clus-
ter found locally at Egans
Creek Greenway a few days
ago. As you can see, the plant
in the photo is similar to
yours. Gaura or beeblossom
plants, as their name sug-
gests, attract bees, which
makes them 11 fnil addition to
any home garden. They fit
well in any informal garden

requires very little water or

seeds are sticking on the fui-

them, I get stuck. MB
A It is difficult to control
.any weed once it has
reached the mature stages of
producing flowers and seeds.
Right now, removing the
seed heads would be benefi-
cial. If you have a bag attach-
ment to your mower you can
gather the seed heads while
mowing to reduce the chance
they will produce more weeds
next year. We do not recom-
mend putting weed killer on
lawns this time of year as the
chemicals can stress or even
kill the grass you wish to pro-
tect. The best management
practice is to have a healthy
lawn, which means watering,
mowing and fertilizing prop-
erly. If you have areas where
the grass had died then the
weeds have an opportunity to
thrive, A pre-emergent herbi-
cide can be used to reduce
the likelihood of seeds from
the sandspur to germinate
next year. This pre-emergent
herbicide should be applied in
the late winter or early spring.
IAook at the local garden cen-
ters.for products used to con-
trol crabgrass and you will
probably notice they are also
used to manage sandspur.

head boys and girls golf coach
at FBHS. "They worked hard all

loss to top-ranked Bolles.,
"We did a lot of good things
in the first half, we just couldn't
tackle their running backs, in
the second half in particular,"
said Bobby Ramsay, head foot-
ball coach at Yulee. "Depth-
wise, I think we got worn down
in the second half. We ,had

Bolles just outexecuted us and
their coaches did a good job."
Bolles' D.J. Stewart scored
six times last week, outshining

Nassau WMA is a still-
hunt-only area, but hunters
may use bird dogs during the
migratory bird and waterfowl
For those willing to pay
$385 to hunt the area, Nassau
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 1, 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.
People may submit appli-
cations online at https://

completed worksheet to a tax
collector's office or any li-
cense agent, and those ven-

A PAp,-S1n, mA,,,,-,
A student, a pastor, a doctor and a
lawyer walk into a room ... It sounds
like the beginning of a joke, but it is a
typical Thursday night at Amelia Arts
People from all walks of life join
together once a week to play in the New
Horizon's Concert Band. The band,
which was formed at Amelia Arts
Academy in the summer of 2000, pro-
vides a place for instrumentalists of all
skill levels to play together and improve
their musicianship. The band plays Big
Band tunes, marches, swing, holiday
music and more.
"When I first started the New
Horizon's Band I didn't even know how
to put together my flute, let alone play
it!" says Kate Wiest, founding member of
the band and a Board of Directors mem-
ber. The members of the band span from
professionals to beginners like Wiest
and, according to Amelia Arts Academy
Director Pegge Ealum, "That's what
'Wefeel everyone has musi-
cal potential that can be
developed by their participa-
tion in the band.'
AMELIA ARTS ACADEMY DIRECTOR
makes it special. The band allows veter-
an players to sharp their knowledge,
while beginners have a chance to learn.
The end result is a band that plays well
together and sounds great!"
According to Roy Ernst, founder of
the New Horizon's International Music
Association, the idea.is to provide an
entry point to music making for adults,
including those with no musical experi-
ence at all and those who were active in
school music programs but have been
inactive for a long period.
"The New Horizon's Program is inclu-
sive, unlike many other music perform-
ance programs that are exclusive. There
are no auditions we feel everyone has
musical potential that can be developed
by their participation in the band," says
The band also enjoys sharing its love
for music with the community. Amelia
Arts Academy presents two free con-
certs Yearly.that feature the band, in
addition to numerous visits to assisted
living facilities and community events
that include the downtown Fernandina
Beach Fourth of July festivities.
See the Amelia Arts Academy's New
Horizon Concert Band play Big Band

'.-rt is tL nd opeinto the public. For

certs or Joming the band, contact Amelia

Heritage commission seeks input
Cultural Heritage Corridor
Commission (GGCHCC) is
seeking input on three prelim-
inary alternatives it developed
for managing the
Heritage Corridor over the
next 10 years.
The preliminary alterna-
tives outline basic manage-
ment concepts and implemen-
tation ideas. Comments must
be received by Tuesday to be
"Based on the responses
we receive, we will then
reevaluate these preliminary
alternatives and select a pre-
ferred alternative," said
Emory S. Campbell,
GGCHCC Chairman. "The
preferred alternative could be'
one of the three alternatives
we've developed, a combina-
tion of ideas from more than
one of the alternatives, or an
entirely new alternative. All of
this information will then be
included in the Management
Plan/Enviro n mental
Each preliminary alterna-
tive presents a different guid-

A, the "No-Action
Alternative," is a continuation
of the status quo and is
required to be considered by
federal law. Under this alter-
native, the management plan
would not be completed. The
GGCHCC would still be
authorized to operate, but
. would lack the guiding man-
agement framework of the
management plan and would
not be eligible for funding
through the Nitional Park
Service National Heritage
Area program. The GGCHCC
would have to raise all funds
required for implementation.

Culture," focuses on strate-
gies designed to document
and archive the history and
resources of the corridor, pro-
