2 million award in burn case
RYAN SM ITH
SAYulee man was awarded more
than $2 million April 15 in 0 suit against
, aJacksonville car dealership.
A Nassau County jury awarded
Ani on Jenkins, 31, about $156,000 in
medical expenses and $2 million for
pain and suffering after it found the
dealership, Key Buick Hyundai, at
fault in a 2009 electrical fire that
destroyed Jenkins' car and left him
with second- and third-degree burns.
Jenkins had leased the car, a
Nissan 350Z, in 2008, according to his
lawyer, Orlando attorney Paul Byron.
In November of that year, Jenkins'
father was in an accident while driving
the car. Jenkins' insurance company,
Progressive, sent the car to a body
"One of Progressive's contracted
body shops was Key Buick Hyundai,"
Byron said. "When they do the esti-
mates for repairs, the repairs total a lit-
tle under $14,000, about 40 percent of
the value of the car."
Key Buick Hyundai estimated the
repairs would take five to six weeks,
Byron said. They took three months.
However, Byron said, the repairs
were not done properly.
'They had a system in place that
was just disastrous," he said. "The per-
,on who runs the body shop came
over from the finance side. He had no
mechanical experience. I asked him
during the trial, 'Have you ever put a
wrench to a vehicle?' ahd he said no."
In fact, Byron said, the mechanic
assigned to Jenkins' car, Max
$l1ankenship, told his superiors several

times that the car should be totaled out
but was rebuffed.
"And he works on commission, so
to say, Total the car,' means, 'Don't pay
me,"' Byron said.
Byron said Jenkins even had to
send the car back to the shop the first
time it was released because of poor
When Jenkins finally got the car
back, Byron said, the dealership's
repairs had damaged the wiring.
"If you pinch a wire, crimp a wire
or abrade a wiring harness, the
components will work, but the tem-
perature goes up. You get heat, and
the heat can result in fire," he said.
"The bottom line is, if you do any dam-
age at all to the wiring system, you'll
have the same result, which is elec-
In August 2009, Jenkins, a naval
petty officer, was driving home from
Kings Bay Naval Station in Kingsland,
Ga., on US 17 in Nassau County.
"On the way in, he sees a vapory
mist from the air conditioning vent
and smells an acrid odor," Byron said.
Jenkins pulled off the road to check
the engine, but the mist and the odor
went away so he drove on. Then
flames began shooting into the cabin
through the vents.
"Luckily his windows were down,
or he would have died," Byron said.
"He inhaled a lot of smoke."

ed by smoke, The car door would not

Fernandina Beach Commissioners
gave final approval Tuesday to an ordi-
nance that will expand sales of alcohol
on Sunday mornings in the city.
All commissioners except Mayor
Susan Steger voiced approval of the
new law, which means businesses in
the city can now sell alcohol every day
of the week from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. the
The ordinance also deletes sections
of the code that prevented businesses
from selling alcohol within 2,000 feet
of churches and schools. Any refer-
ences concerning the percentage of
food sold in restaurants and bars were
. Jeff Whitaker, co-owner of Robison
Jewelry in downtown Fernandina
Beach, said "a vital reason for restrict-
ing alcohol sales on Sunday is respect
for God during the Sunday, morning
worship time. Our country and com-
munity have had a tradition of honor-
"Since June of 1935 we have hon-
ored God by placing restrictions on
the sale of alcohol on Sunday,"
Whitaker said. "Let's not move away
from the conservative, Goo-honoring
family atmosphere that telps make
our Fernandina such a unique and
special place to live and to visit. It was
said at the last meeting it is not the job
of the commission to legislate moral-
ity. However, the real purpose of the
law is to declare a behavior right or
wrong..... I ask you to honor this long-
Jeff Overton, senior pastor of First
Baptist Church of Fernandina, remind-
ed commissioners that they spent a
lot of money for studies on dredging
the marina and other projects, but
asked if they had done any studies on
alcohol and'its effects on the commu-
"There are many studies that show
violence increases with more avail-
ability of alcohol," he said. "You are
called to make decisions that protect
the life and property of Fernandina
Beach. To (approve this ordinance)
means ... (you) care about the money
more than the people."
"As a pastor in the community, I've
had to tell loved ones that their dad is
not coming home," Overton said,
"some as the result of alcohol." He
urged commissioners to "take a stand
not for morality, but for safety."
"Please weigh the good against the
bad," said Steve Simmons, owner of
ERA Fernandina Beach Realty. "The
cost of this ordinance will certainly
outweigh the gains. ... Statistics show
that passing it will not be good for the
Melba Whitaker said not all mem-
bers of the Historic Downtown
Business Association were in favor of
the new ordinance. "Don't get the idea
it's a unanimous thing," she said. The
people of Fernandina Beach have
"always had a respect for Sundays,"
she said, noting that compromises to
the alcohol laws had been adopted
over the years, but this new ordinance

A Hilliard pastor drowned Tuesday morning
William Jones, 72, pastor of Mt. Horeb Baptist
Church in Hilliard, drowned after falling out of
a boat while fishing with his wife, Elva, on
Julington Creek just before 11 a.m. Bystanders
attempted to rescue Jones but were unable to
reach him in time.
His wife was not in danger and returned to
shore safely, according to news reports. It is
unclear how Jones fell out of the boat. While life
preservers were in the boat, he was not wearing
one and police said he could not swim.
Jones was well known in the community, hav-
ing served as pastor at the church for a second
time beginning in December 2008. He served at
the church previously during the late 1970s and
Jones was active in the Lessie Road commu-

parishioners at St. James Baptist Church, led by

numbers and letters. Having

Mercedes dealership for 10
years after college, I know the
Mercedes badging from 1978
to 1988. The numbers in a
300SD model, for example, rep-
resented a 3.0-litre engine, the
S stood for super-class body and
the D stood for diesel engine.
Simple and to the point. The
Mercedes name carried all the
branding they needed and they
let numbers and letters do the
rest. BMW did this also.
Today, Lexus, Infinity, Acura
and others have adopted this
approach. It is now the favored
way to name an expensive offer-
ing. Digressing, Henry Ford
called his car a ModelT. It was-
n't very expensive and it worked
out pretty well for him.

A sense of humor helps in Tallahassee
Week six of the legislative
session has been full of antici-
pation and speculation. Much
of the subcommittee work has
been completed, so the meet-
ing schedule has slowed con-
siderably. This means that
many legislative ideas and
proposals essentially die in
committee having not been
My week in Tallahassee
'began with the drive on
Tuesday morning. We had
two bills on the Economic
Affairs committee agenda. HB
:1317 is our Nassau County
local bill. I was pleased to
'have County Commissioner
-Barry Holloway attend the
'committee meeting and speak
:in favor of the bill. The bill
,was unanimously approved by
the committee and is now
:ready to be heard on the
'House floor. This bill was a
result of an economic summit
from last October 2010 and is
aimed at creating jobs.
After presenting my bills, I
met with Chris Chambliss, the
Clay County supervisor of
elections, about HB 1355 deal-
ing with elections. I also met
with representatives of the
Florida Association of
regarding affordable housing.
The highlight of the afternoon
was meeting with realtors
from Nassau County. About 20
realtors crowded in my office
to talk about property insur-
ance, property tax assess-
ments, septic tank inspections
and affordable housing. We
took time to pose for a picture
outside of House chambers.
The realtors bring such a
presence to the Capitol and
we always enjoy hearing from
The day ended with a
meeting about cancer
research funding. This is an
issue that will be addressed
during conference. The
Senate funds cancer research
at $52.2 million while the
House funds only $1.'2 million.
On Wednesday morning I
enjoyed a quick visit with real-
tors from the Jacksonville
area (and a couple from "
Bryceville). It was special for
me because one of the real-
tors was my boss 26 years ago
when I worked 'at Watson
Realty. It is wonderful to
renew old acquaintances. On
the walk to the fourth floor,
Paige Kelton from Action
News asked for an on-camera
interview to talk about a law
that is being proposed in
South Carolina to restrict
, inmates from engaging in
social media activities. This is
apparently a new tactic that
inmates are using to commu-
nicate and develop relation-
ships online. It reminded me
of the bill that we did last ses-
sion dealing with electronic
threats and I

tion. We had an interesting
panel discussion regarding
health care services and when
it is appropriate and cost effec-
tive to have private providers
involved in service delivery.
The committee looked at how
purchasing works, asked
questions and heard testimo-
ny from' experts.,The two-
hour meeting flew by.
After lunch I was off to the
Education Committee meet-
ing where we had a lengthy
debate on HB 301 dealing
with protecting youth athletes
from concussions and head
injuries. An amendment was
adopted to allow not only
physicians and osteopathic
physicians, but also chiroprac-
tors to' return a youth athlete
who is suspected of sustaining
a concussion or head injury to
practice or competition.

email announcing the sched-
ule for budget conference.
Finally, late in the afternoon,
the announcement was made
that conference between the
House and the Senate would
not start until after the Easter
break. This was both good
news and bad news. It was
good news because it meant I
would be able to go home this
weekend, but bad news
because it sets our schedule
back quite a bit. While the
House is scheduled to work
two days during Easter week,
the Senate will be out of ses-
sion for the full week.
That night I had an enjoy-
able evening at the Republi-
can C~iutas dinner. We had a
time 6f fellowship and cama-
raderne and iti meant no Chef
Bovardee ravioli for dinner!
They played video clips of
members debating the budget
from the prior week. It was
hilarious to hear so many
members use the words
"tough," "difficult" and "hard"
to describe the budget
process. It was suggested that
we were in need of a the-
sauris:; Leader Lopez-Cantera
was the.worst offender by far,
using these words seven
times ifi his debate.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
.South end boondoggle
As a full-time resident living on
the south end of Amelia Island I am
sad to learn of the unnecessary and
very expensive beach renourish-
ment planned to begin this May.
How is it possible that our commis-
sioners approved this project where
one-third of the project and cost is
located in the state park, but being
paid for by property owners to the
north? I have never heard of a state
park infrastructure project that is
100 percent paid for by property
owners unrelated to the park.
Shouldn't visitors to the park pay
by increasing usage fees?
Additionally, do the south end
residents realize that there was not
a competitive bid or second unbi-
ased opinion reviewed by the com-
missioners or SAISSA, (South
Amelia Island Shore Stabilization
Association) prior to making their
decision? Does anyone care if the
same vendor is chosen project after
project without competition? Does
anyone care if the contractor inten-.
tionally places shell on ihe beach
instead of sand? Does anyone care
if there is a wall of shell approxi-
mately 8 feet high that is placed .on,
the dunes making it very difficult to'.
access on and off the beach, not to
mention the harm to the sea oats
and turtle nests? The fact is shell
holds water, and sea oats. do not
grow in "wet feet." Water in shell
rots the turtle eggs.
The commissioners owe it to the
citizens to at least verify the inac-
curacies stated by both the SAISSA
- board and contractor before forc-
ingthe property owners to pay for a
project that will have adverse effects
on the dunes for many years. In case
you aren't a believer just look at the,.
lack of sea oats in front of Dunes,
Row caused by the amount of shell
dumped during the prior re-nour-
Since I walk the beach almost
every day, the fact is the present
beach is at least 400 feet wide, with
appreciating dunes and vegetation.
There is a large and growing sand-
bar just offshore. There is not a 15-
foot drop off at low tide as reported
by the contractor and SAISSA, but a
very shallow, almost level, entrance
measured by a few inches to the
water. Seems to me the commis-
sioners should walk the beach to
see firsthand how inaccurate the
present beach report actually is.
Especially before they spend $12
million of the property owners'
money on a. boondoggle shell proj-
ect that could,be washed away;with
just one storm. ..
A far better use of money would
be to add another breaker groin to
correct the present problem of
beach erosion to the south of fhe
present breaker groin.
The beach has never looked bet-
ter! It is wide, mostly flat with white
sand. There were a record number
of new turtle nests on the south end
of the island in 2010. Why would
the commissioners and SAISSA
want to spend $12 million to cor-
rect a problem that doesn't exist?
Where doyou stand?
I read State Rep. Janet Adkins'.

Friday outlining all that she was
involved with in the Legislature but
I was hoping for a bit more.
', When she.writes up all these bills
and committee activities, could she
please tell us all how she stands on
these issues? I, and I would bet
many others, would really like to
fiave this information along with her
journal. Shucks, it isn't nearly as
interesting if we don't know how
.your feel about this stuff. Or you
could post a paragraph of all the
votes you made for that week. I'd
like that a lot.
,h, and I'd like to know how you
stand on one of the topics you dis-
cussed in last Friday's paper (April
15). I was wondering about the
income tax on state and local work-
ers bill. That's the one that would
take 3 percent of all state, county
.and local workers that are in the
state pension plan. See, it involves
me as I am a non-union employee of
Nassau County. ,
As it has been laid out to me, the
state pension fund is not in very bad
shape. In fact, itis one of the health-
iest (top 5 in the nation) around.
This is why I call it an income tax as
it is intended to pay down the budg-
et deficit and some to be sent to the
counties and cities. Now, I am trying
to figure out why anyone would want
.to pick out a particular group of peo-
ple, not the over $200,000 a year
folks, and levy a special tax on them.
So, Rep. Adkins, how do you feel
Anyhow, above is one good
example. So could you please let us
know how you think on these
issues? I'd sure appreciate it.
I have had on occasions to have
to visit Baptist Medical Center
Nassau. There is a circle drive-
through that is designed to drop
people off and move to the parking
lot. Granted that the parking lot is
not of the correct size to hold all
the cars at certain times. Needless
to say, the circular drive/dropoff is
not a parking lot either. There are
signs under said drive-through as
to "no parking" and "cars unattend-
ed will be towed."
I have had the volunteer helpers
that sit at the front desk to call secu-
rity and on one occasion even
refused to call security. I have on
several occasions brought this to
security's attentionTo no avail was
the problem handled, as the securi-
ty person that I spoke to was more
interested in debating excuses as
to allowing this practice. I find it
rather interesting that we have spe-
cial people that are allowed to con-
tinue such practices. These aren't
teenagers or people that don't know

VIEWPOINT/JENNIFER AND MIKE HARRISON/OLD TOWN ,
Old Town bicentennial reflections
On April 2 Old Town Fernandina figu-
ratively "opened the Town Gates"
and welcomed thousands of visitors
to the bicentennial celebration. The
weather was glorious, the boat and trolley
shuttles were a fun and informative start to the
day and on arrival visitors theree faced with a
fascinating choice of activities ranging from
history and nature walkg,',o$h.tqmed historical
characters, cemetery antI home tours, to fla-
menco dancing, Spanish guitar. music and
choral works, to pirates/pia-.a school and
treasure hunts. Old Town looked terrific in the
bright sunshine, and shi's passing close by on
the river saluted by sounding their sirens in
appreciation and support.
The organizers were surprised and delight-
ed by the number of visitors. They had hoped
for between 500 and 1,000 visitors whereas best
estimates of the day place the number around
3,000. Locals and visitors from far afield wanted
to join in the celebrations for the 200th anniver-
sary of the naming and platting of Fernandina
in 1811 when this small ramshackle town was
an important Spanish port just off shore from
the newly formed and ambitious United States.
It became apparent tfiat many visitors only
had a very fleeting knowledge of Old Town and
were delighted to have the opportunity to expe-
rience and explore this uniquely beautiful and
historic site. After-the-event comments were all
positive and focused on the great riverside loca-
tion, the wonderful weather,.the convenient and
welcoming shuttle start to the day, the organi-
zation and the choice of so many interesting
things to do.
Other comments included "I didn't realize
how little I knew about Old Town. I'm going to
train as a museum docent" realtorr); "We never
knew.there was so much fascinating history on
the island" (from many visitors); "I'm going to
have the museum bring the historical charac-
ters to my classroom" (three teachers); "The
best (lay I've had in years" (85-year-old);
"Probably the best festi-
val event I've attended"
(local resident); "Old
Town felt very comfort-
able" (many visitors);
"We live on the island
but q didn't realize this
(Old Town) was here"
(young cpuple); "This
event Was a blessing"
(lifelong Fernandina res-
ide nt); "The bicentennial
t dhas brought the wider
community together" (local writer).
The bicentennial organizers had, maybe
unwittingly, realized the importance of manag-
ing visitors' experiences. It was apparent from
the moment visitors left their cars or either of
the free trolley shuttles or the boat shuttle that
the day was going to be something different.
The "tour guides" on the shuttles relayed infor-
mation and visitors eagerly anticipated the
Events were spread throughout Old Town.
By foot or trolley visitors roamed from the
Bosque Bello Cemetery and site of the town
gates, to the river's edge and from the board-
walk to Egans Creek. Visitors found it fascinat-
ing to "step back in time" and take part in the
archeological dig or walk along part of the
route of the old boardwalk. This was a four-feet-
wide wooden "bridge" across the marsh that
was built in 1870 to link old Fernandina to the
new town created by David Yulee for his rail-
head. The boardwalk was the artery that con-
nected the two towns and provided opportuni-
ties for Old Town residents to work in the new
town. Later, many from the new town were able
to walk to work across the boardwalk to Old
Town and then on to the north boardwalk that
ran across Egans Creek to the pogy plants.
Since 1853, when most of old Fernandina's
population moved to the new town, Old Town
and its history have become seemingly irrele-
vant to the new Fernandina. Many people who
worked the sea lived in Old Town, but they did
not significantly influence the development of
today's Fernandina Beach. Rather, the driving
factors were a popular tourist destination, par-,
ticularly for wealthy folks from the Northeast, a
vibrant but now declined shrimping industry, a
national depression that left Fernandina's
graceful buildings intact because there was no
economic interest even in using the land on
which they stood, the encouragement of two
pulp mills to open here just before World War II
and the recognition that our stock of postbel-
lum buildings was invaluable and should be
protected and revered.
More recently an interest has developed in
the history of our city above and beyond an
appreciation of its architecture. It is at this point
that Old Town's early influence on the develop-
ment of Fernandina can be appreciated. Can
the enthusiasm for the history of Old Town
generated by the bicentennial offer any sugges-
tions for the future of Fernandina and Amelia
Island? Are there some simple things that could
be done to encourage more visitors to this.
beautiful island, visitors who may choose to
stay and settle here?
Maybe our visitors' experience could be
managed at an expanded, attractive, engaging
and informative new welcome center at the
entrance to the island or improving and enhanc-
ing the offerings of the city's Marine Welcome
Center, Tourist Development Council depot or
Amelia Island Chamber of Commerce. Visitors
could recover from their journeys, rest for a
while, watch a short video about the island and
Fernandina, admire a display of Eight Flags his-
tory, obtain maps and receive help on finding
accommodation to suit their needs.
There they could explore the many options
open to them and receive expert help as they
consider the various bed and breakfast estab-
lishments and hotels, restaurants and theaters,
museum and boat tours, kayaking, golf, tennis,
biking and horseback riding, Fort Clinch State
Park and Greenwaynature explorations, and of
course the gloriously differing beaches, from
the unspoiled beauty of the state park beach -
with. its fishing pier to Main Beach and beyond.
They could pick and choose which of the vari-
ous options they want to combine into a "vaca-
tion package" that suits their budget. A prelimi-
nary and introductory ride on the trolley might
be available to help clarify these options for
Much appreciated at the bicentennial were
the homeowners who welcomed visitors into
their delightful and unusual captains' homes
and cottages. On leaving Old Town, shuttles
buzzed with discussion about the uniqueness of
each home and the differing favorites. The Old
Town homes are built on "peonies," lots that
measure 46.5 feet by 93 feet. The advantages of
smaller homes with lower heating and cooling
costs are well known in Old Town, and point a
direction for the future. Maybe a simplistic goal
for Fernandina is to encourage the creation of
"future home tour" homes, where each small
house is sustainable, eiiergy-efficient, different
from its neiglibors and enhances the total com-
When all is said and done, the success of the
bicentennial seems to rest on its dramatic and
unique location, ithe perfect weather, its turbu-
lent history andil the multiple locations of differ-
ing events which catered to visitors' varying
interests. Amelia Island has a marvelous and
unique history thal rivals Ihose of many famous
historic destinations. Thecise create unique
opportunities for our wonderfulcf museum and
our theaters to iinite, maybe in creating a series
of performances linked by history, drama
and/or music that will draw visitors to
Fernandina and entice them to explore oppor-
tunities for business hnd relocation. As the
bicentennial organizers have discovered pay-
ing homage to history creates dreams for the
future that can be realized.

icky but harmless
QWhat is causing all the
Swebbing in the trees
along the roadsides? Will
they kill the tree? MC
A .This is a common ques-
.tion during the spring
and fall. The webbing is
caused by the eastern tent
Although this caterpillar
is a pest native to North
America, it is not dangerous.
Populations fluctuate from
year to year, with outbreaks
occurring every several .
years. Eastern tent caterpil-
lar nests are commonly
found on wild cherry, apple
and crabapple, but may be '
found on hawthorn, maple,
cherry, peach, pear and
plum as well. While tent
caterpillars can nearly defoli-
ate a tree when numerous,
the tree will usually recover.
Removal and destruction
of the egg masses fi'om orna-
mentals and fruit trees dur-
ing winter greatly reduces
the problem next spring. In
the early spring, small tents
can be removed and
destroyed by hand. Larger
tents may be pruned out and
destroyed or removed by
winding the nest upon the
end of a stick. Generally,
insecticides are ineffective
against the mature caterpil-
lar. Certain wasps and mock-
ingbirds are common preda-
tors of these caterpillars..
Q .1 have found small flies
'.that have a striped
body on my window sill.
What can they be? BK
A I suspect the fly may be
a Hover Fly, Allograpta
obliqua, which is also called
flower fly, or syrphid fly.
The adults are important
pollinators for several com-
mon plants in our area and
they are Ibund in Northeast
Florida throughout the year.
The larvae develop into an
adult much slower in the
winter, which takes about 8
days whereas during the
summer it may only takes 1-
2 days to mature.
Hover flies feed on the
iectar of flowers as well as
.he honeydew secreted by
aphids, those piercing/suck-
ing insects that feed on the
new growth of plants. The
larvae are voracious eaters,
feeding on aphid pests com-
monly found on citrus, sub-
71 lettuce and

QWhat can you tell me
Q .about the trees that
produce the big, beautiful
pink or purple flowers? One
of my neighbors called it a
tulip tree. Do you know what
it is? TB
A This is another exam-
: ple where using a com-
mon name fails us. The state
tree of Indiana is called a yel-
low poplar, or Tuliptree,
Liriodendron tulipifera, but I
am pretty sure you are not
.talking about this stately
beauty. Its flowers are a
We can grow this tree in
our area but the flower color
is not correct. I believe you
are asking about the Tulip
Magnolia or Saucer
Magnolia, Magnolia X
soulangeana. Unlike some of
.its evergreen cousins, this
magnolia is deciduous. The
beautiful flowers appear
before the leaf is formed. It
can reach heights up to 25
feet with a 15-20 foot spread.
So be sure there is enough
room in your landscape
before making it a perma-
nent addition to your yard.
They can be grown in full
sun to part shade and prefer
well-drained, moist soil. They
have no serious pest prob-
lems. Saucer magnolia trees
can be grown as far south as
cold hardiness zone 9.

The host Pirates prevailed
over the Yulee Hornets 10-8
"We had a chance to drive
in the go-ahead runs in the
seventh inning with the bases
loaded and one out, but were
unable to get timely hits,"
said Will Minor, head base-
ball coach at Yulee High
The Pirates took a 1-0 lead
in the bottom of the second
and the Hornets answered in
the top of the third with a pair
of runs. That lead was short-
lived as Fernandina-had a
five-run bottom half to go up
6-2 and then added a run in
the bottom of the fourth for a
7-2 edge over Yulee.
Yulee cut the lead with a
four-run sixth inning, but the
Pirates were quick to answer
with another three. The
Pirates led 10-6 going into the
top of the seventh.
"I was proud of the effort

down early," Coach Minor
"Yulee is a scrappy club
and you have to extend your
lead at each opportunity,,"
said Ken Roland, Fernandina

A statement offaith
for the community
HEATHER A. PERRY
Members of First Presbyterian Church age
3 to 70 have created crosses in a wide variety
of mediums for their "Cross Town" exhibit,
available for viewing through Easter in the
windows of The Anchor at 515 Centre St.
The worship arts project displays crosses
made of wood, paper, fabric, shells and other
"All of the crosses were created by mem-
bers of the congregation, children arid adults,"
said Doris Davis, director of Christian educa-
tion, who called the exhibit, "a statement of
faith and salvation to our community."
The project was designed to engage the
congregation in the season of Lent by focusing
attention on the cross as the journey to Easter
"The process of creating a cross incorporat-
ed thought, reflection and creativity. The work
of it fostered a sacred time of discovering what
the cross means to them individually."
"A secondary goal was to use the storefront
that we have on Centre Street to share our
faith with those who walk by our windows and
allow the crosses to speak to their hearts."
Davis felt as if every cross could speak to
someone and each has a different perspective
and thought process behind it. Pointing to a
cross made of wod- !
en handrails, Davis 1
said she thought it
was interesting to
think ofGod as our handrail.
Several other cross-es, made by ne:m-
bers of the same family, created what
Davis called "a sacred family memory"

FBHS students enjoy trip around Italy
Imagine driving through the green
hills and mountains of Tuscany on a
tour bus with 15 energetic high school
students. Well, that is what four Nassau
County teachers did this spring break
through Education First Tours.
Group leader and teacher of the gift-
ed Julianne French, studio art teacher
Sharon Eells, Advanced Placement
English teacher Sharon Barlow, and
Star's teacher Dustin Schott escorted
the Fernandina Beach High School stu-
dents and two parents across the
Atlantic on aneight-day trip to Assisi,
Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Montecatinia and
French, Eels and Barlow first
thought of the idea over summer break
and chose an educational and affordable
travel company. Students signed up for'
the trip in early September and were
able to pay in monthly installments. The
group comprised gifted, art and litera-
ture students. The trip focused on the
art and literature of Italy, including the
medieval, Renaissance and Baroque
The first adventure began in the
medieval town of Assisi where the city,
resting on a hill, consists only of 600
residents in the top portion. At the apex
of the hill rests a castle that gave Assisi
a shroud of mystery. The students felt it
was a peaceful place, and as they discov-
ered, Assisi is the City of Peace, known
for St. Francis' birthplace and basilica.
Students were then introduced to
the city of Florence, known as the birth-
place of the Renaissance. Students visit-,
ed the Uffizi Gallery and saw
Michelangelo's David sculpture in the
Accademia Museum, and
Brunelleschi's Duomo, a grand domed
Stopping for a photo opportunity at
Pisa allowed the students to compete in
a photo competition for the best leaning
tower image. The next town was the
sleepy city of Lucca, known for its many
churches and medieval surrounding
The most memorable part of
the trip was the Sistine
Chapel. It was breathtaking,
and it meant more to me
because prior to the trip
Ihad learned about
the paintings in class.

ular view of the Vatican Museum, the
Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Cathedral.
Students were thrilled to also see the'
Pope give his blessing outside the
Gifted 10th grader Kathryn Jackson
*said, "This trip was a great way to see
and learn about Italian art, culture and
food. The.most memorable part of the
trip was the Sistine Chapel. It was
breathtaking, and it meant more to me
because prior to the trip I had learned
about the paintings in class. I also loved
the Trevi Fountain; it was beautiful. ... I
would love to go back!"
Senior Margaret Eels said, "It was a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see in
person all that I have studied in my
classes about Italy. It was also exciting
to study another culture."

encouraged another trip for spring
