TAMPA- Even though 62 percent
of Florida residents are aware emer-
gency evacuations routes can change
annually, more than one-third (36 per-
cent) are unsure about their desig-
nated evacuation route, according to a
recent AAA Consumer Pulse survey.
AAA suggests that residents check
with their local government to see if
any changes were made to their evac-
uation zone, since the zone is what
determines when an area is required
to evacuate. Although the majority of
Florida respondents (89 percent) said.
they would follow evacuation warn-
ings, only 40 percent keep an emer-
gency car kit in their vehicle.
"Before evacuating their home,
consumers need to take important
documents with them such as insur-

track ng

ance policies and
other household
or medical paper-
work, as well as
valuables, and an
inventory of per-
sonal items," said

Marge Engleman, senior insurance
manager, AAA Auto Club South. "If
planning to evacuate, motorists need
to be sure they have an emergency
car kit in their vehicle to be as pre-
pared as possible when on the road."
Hurricafle season begins
Wednesday and continues until Dec. 1.
While 80 percent of Florida respon-
dents said they prepare for hurricane
season, significantly less people keep
a plentiful supply of first aid, medical
supplies or medication (68 percent
compared to 78 percent in 2010), extra
food (74 percent compared to 80 per-
cent in 2010) and a battery-operated
radio (67 percent compared to 72 per-
!cent in 2010). Yet more than three-
fourths (88 percent) of Florida respon-
dents said they keep items on hand
,such as batteries and flashlights and
,extra water (81 percent).
"Whether evacuating or not, con-
sumers need to have an ample supply
of water, food, medical supplies and
prescription medication since there is
no way to tell how long one could be
without power and other basic neces-
sities," said .Engleman. "To make
storm preparation and evacuation eas-
ier, consumers should make a check:
list of needed items and to-dos before
the start of hurricane season."

Fernandina Beach resident
Gerhardt B. Thamm probably under-
stands better than most the meaning
of the old Chinese curse: "May you
live in interesting times."
Thamm, born in Detroit in 1930,
moved with his family to Germany in
1932 and, like many German teenagers
at the close of World War II, was con-
scripted at 15 to fight off the Soviet
invasion of Ger-
"My fight was
neither noble nor
heroic," Thamm
wrote in Boy Soldier,
his 2000 memoir of
the experience. "I
saw the horrors that
no 15-year-old boy Thamm
should see. I came
into war purely by
unfortunate hap-
penstance, and sur-
vived it purely by
lucky coincidence."
The Soviets, of
course, overran
Thamm's province
of Lower Silesia and
Thamm found him-
self deported. His
experiences as a soldier, however,
were far from over. He's chronicled
his experiences as an American mili-
tary intelligence agent in a new book,
The Making of a Spy.
"I was born in the U.S., so when I
came out from a Soviet work camp, I
came into West Germany, and my dad
was working for the Americans as a
gas station attendant," Thamm said
Wednesday. "He suggested that I
should apply for a program called
Return of American Citizens.... Icame
to the States in 1948 and stayed about
a month with friends, and then Ijoined
the Army."
Actually, Thamm said, he wanted to
join the Navy. However, he didn't
speak much English at the time, and
when an NCO at the recruiting office
seemed to be gesturing for recruits
to get out of one line and into the other,
Thamm went along with the crowd.
"I followed the other line and it
ended up being the Army line," he
said. "I took basic training with the
3rd Army Division in Fort Knox, then
I was assigned to the Pentagon."
There, Thamm began his intelli-
gence career. As a native German
speaker, he was tasked with finding,
among the volumes captured from the
Potsdam Archives, documents that
would help prosecute Nazi leadership.
"Since the Germans had docu-
mented everything so meticulously,
we managed to convict quite a few
Nazis," he said. "We went through this
whole damn pile of documents slowly,
and extracted a whole bunch of docu-
ments that were of interest to the pros-
Shortly thereafter, Thamm was
transferred to West Germany and
trained to interrogate East German
defectors. His days as an interroga-
tor didn't last long, however.
"I was there about half a year when
I was interviewed for the Army
Clandestine Services and became a
clandestine operative," he said.
"The big thing was early warning
for (the U.S. Army Europe Command)
and the British;" he said. "We were

the Manatee Club urges I'ci'e:
national boaters to be alert for
manatees who may be travel-

"The warm weather that
draws Floridians and tourists to
the state's waterways and
beaches also prompts manatees
to mate," said Dr. Katie Tripp,
director of Science and
Conservation for the club.
"Groups of manatees that typi-
cally consist of one female and
multiple males are called "mat-
ing herds." Tripp explains that
manatees often gravitate toward
shallow water areas, and may
appear stranded on sandbars
and beaches.
"If you see a mating herd,
keep a safe distance and do not
approach,touch or disturb these
manatees. Approaching group
of large marine mammals is
never a safe thing to do, but
when they are distracted by
romance, it is even more
unsafe." Tripp further cautions
that human disturbance can dis-
rupt breeding activity, which is

ence of manatees they may not

Communication, selling

and technology

The technology
explosion has for
the most part been
a great thing for
our world. Global informa-
tion on any subject is at our
fingertips. That ability to
amass preliminary data and
many times make a purchase
Sonline has changed the game
in retailing. We have become
more of a do-it-yourself con-
sumer economy. That can be
a great thing when we need a
staple item we have pur-
chased before and are famil-
iar with.
It gets more uncertain
when we enter something
like clothing, a common
online purchase. For years, I
bought dress shirts from a
famous Maine.retailer that I
still really like. They fit well,
were made of a heavy-gauge
cotton, at a good price, and
as a bonus were made in the
USA. On a re-order one year,
the new shirts were a very
thin material, imported and
just not of the same quality.
There will always be an
uncertainty involved in evalu-
ating a product when it is not
in person.
Buying a new or used
vehicle is a lot more critical
decision than a clothing pur-
chase. You owe it to yourself
to be hands-on before getting
too deep in the purchase
process. Websites are a ter-
rific starting point, and yes,
the vehicles look awesome
on these high-quality sites.
But the old adage about judg-
ing a book by its cover

applies. The
best way to
assess your
options is in

you have

RickKeffer is what so
many think.
And that is unfortunate.
From homes to cars, appli-
ances, furniture, clothing,
cell phones, etc., a profes-
sional salesperson is a great
tool to getting the purchase
right. Yet increasingly in our
less verbal world, we are
reluctant to take advantage
of a sales associate. I encour-
age people toaget by that,
whether it is a car or a new
cell phone that is needed.
Talk to a trained expert
about what you need and
want in a product.
All salespeople are not
created equal. Calling or
mailing ahead to make an
initial contact can allow you
to pre-screen your sales asso-
ciate. If they don't impress
you and it is a product/loca-
tion that appeals to you, call
back in five minutes and talk
to anAther associate or the
sales manager. If you just
pull ino a dealership or cellu-
lar mega-store with a dozen
sales associates, you take
your chances on the ability

level of the salesperson.
Break the ice before you
arrive if that helps.
Once at a dealership, take
time to look at the vehicless.
A good salesperson will do a
product presentation fol-
lowed by a demo drive. Ask
them to drive first and
demonstrate acceleration,
braking and any other fea-
tures that you care about.
Then take your turn and
make an adequate assess-
ment of the vehicle. Engage
the salesperson ask them
questions and try to be com-
fortable. Many salespeople
are as nervous as the cus-
tomers and getting comfort-
able with each other gives
making an informed pur-
chase much more likelihood.
It can actually be fun buying
a car.
Take advantage of tech-
nology when you shop, but
never shortchange yourself
when a hands-on opportunity
exists. Go experience tJle
product and get a salesper-
son to enhance the process.
Take the relevant input they
have arid be in the best pos"-'
tion possible to act. Go full
circle in the process. It is
your money and ultimate,
decision. Have a safe and

FRIDAY. MAY 27. 2011 OPINION News-Leader


Here are the facts about the Tea Party

Judith Harris's Viewpoint,
"Fact checking difficult, but
what's the choice?" (May 4)
conjured up two images in my
mind. The first was of Jimmy
Stewart in the "Harvey the
Rabbit" movie where the char-
acter played by Mr. Stewart
has an imaginary friend that is
a six-foot-tall rabbit that no
one else can see. In the movie
he carries on conversations
with his imaginary fi-iend
while confusing those around
him. The other image was
from the funny movie
"Christmas Vacation." You
know the scene, where Clark
Griswold's redneck, inbred,
hick, down-on-his-luck broth-
er-in-law Eddie is standing in
the street wearing his beat-up
robe and goofy earmuff cap
while emptying the contents
of his dilapidated RV's septic
tank into the public sewer in
front of the Griswold home.
The first image comes
from Ms. Harris's obvious use
of an imaginary neighbor as a
foil in order for her to go on a
lengthy attack of those who
do not share her political view.
The rabbit, excuse me, neigh-

bor sounds very much like
the Eddie character in the
National lampoon Christmas
movie. While Ms. Harris man-
ages to sound brilliant with
rational thoughts her poor
neighbor can only manage
things like, "You're one of
those Mamsy Pansy type peo-
ple" or "Oh, I don't have time
for all of that" and "Who's the
Pied Piper?" and my person-
al favorite, "Oh come on now,
you don'tthitnk us Tea Party
folks are Nazis do you?"
I find it difficult to imagine
that an ill-informed doofus of a
neighbor, as painted by Ms.
Hairris, had the industry and
intelligence to end up in a
"development that has a com-
munity pool" lolling about
talking politics here on Amelia
For an article about facts,
they are in short supply when
you read it. Let me offer a few
for Ms. Harris that she may
like to check.
Fact: As of May 6, the total
public debt outstanding of the
United States df America was
$14.32 trillion and was approx-
imately 98 percent of calendar

year 2010's annual gross
domestic product (GDP) of
$14.66 trillion. (Gross debt
has increased over $500 bil-
lion each year since fiscal year
(FY) 2003, with increases of
$1 trillion in FY2008, $1.9 tril-
lion in FY2009, and $1.7 tril-
lion in FY2010.) Together with
the budget deficit, this debt
was one of the reasons given
by Standard & Poor's to down-
grade the United States' credit
outlook to "negative" on April
18. What this means is that
the dollar is about to be
replaced as the standard of
currency in the world very
soon. We cannot support this
deficit and survive, even with
all the money borrowed from
China (npt a friend of the
USA, but they do supply us
with toxic drywall, poisoned
foods and dangerous toys; we
can trust them, right?).
Fact: According to the U.S.
Census Bureau, in 2008 there
were 46.3 million people in the
U.S. (15.4 percent of the popu-
lation) who were without
health insurance. The.percent-
age of the non-elderly popula-
tion who are uninsured has

Lifelong Nassau County resident with over
20 years experience as a
crnmmmprial incurnnrp anant

been generally increasing
since the year 2000. However,
the 2007 figures were down
slightly from the Census
Bureau reports for the previ-
ous year, because 3 million
more people received cover-
age under government pro-
grams. According to the
Census Bureau, in 2007, there
were 8.1 million uninsured
children in.the U.S. Nearly 8
million young adults (those
ages 18-24) were uninsured,
representing 28.1 percent of
their population. Young adults
make up the largest age seg-
ment of the uninsured, are the
most likely to be uninsured
and are one of the fastest
growing segments of the unin-
sured population (read: they
can't find decent-paying jobs
and now have crushing school
loans to pay for first). Non-citi-
zens are more likely to be
uninsured than citizens, with a
43.8 percent uninsured rate.
Foreign-born non-citizens
accounted for over 40 percent
of the increase in the unin-
sured between 1990 and 1998,
and over 90 percent of the
increase between 1998 and
2003. The costs of treating the
uninsured must often be
absorbed by providers as
charity care, passed on to the
insured via cost-shifting and
higher health insurance pre-
miums, or paid by taxpayers
through higher taxes.
Fact: Di&k Morris says the
Tea Party is a grassroots
movement with no national
leadership. "Those who con-
duct its affairs are mere coor-
dinators of local groups where
the real power lies. The entire
affair is a grass roots-dominat-
ed movement" He notes that
the teapartypatriots.org
umbrella group, with more
than 2,800 local affiliates, has
only seven paid staff members
and a payroll of $50,000 a
month. Mark Mardell of BBC
News, who has "spoken to
many supporters of the Tea
Party and been to lots of ral-
lies," has said that when he
talks to Tea Party supporters

Memorial Day
On Feb. 2 I was so impressed with
the photo of Mayor Susan Steger hon-
oring Helene Scott, a veteran of World
War II, that I looked up her phone
number and called her. We had a long,
wonderful conversation. I told her of
my experiences during that time, and
she suggested that I write this letter.
The later wonderful article you pub-
lished (April 20) honoring Jim Thomas
made me so happy I knew that I should
tell my family story ofveterans in
World War II. I had three brothers who
served during the war, and soon after
a younger one went in to the Army
and was stationed at the Atom Bomb
area. My husband, whom I met much
later, was Lt. Col. Eber B. Philips, who
retired from the Marine Corps with
39 years of service.
.Two of my brothers were in the
Navy, serving in the South Pacific.
There was a young man from our
hometown who served with them, and
sent the following article to his par-
ents, who immediately gave it to
We Are Calling on You, Dear
Pray for the other guys, Mother,
Just as you pray for me.
Pray for the thousands of
homesick boys
And the guys that are lost at sea.
Pray for the place we are at now
To be ridden of all its sin.
Pray for the places we're going
And for the places we've been.
Pray for us dear Mother
Pray that we will come through,
Pray for me and my brother
But pray for the other guys, too.
Pray that the Lord in Heaven
Will forgive us of all our sin
Pray for the war to finish
And the United Nations to win.
The above was written by Louis M
Garrett, who was with the Navy in the
South Pacific.

Communities In Schools
Our Nassau County schools will be
,sorely challenged to provide the cur-
:rent level of education to its students
!in the coming school year. Those stu-
:dents having the greatest need for
:extra help with their lessons are like-
:ly to experience the worst effects from
'the budget cuts that are coming. Even
:at current budget levels it is frequent-
ly not possible for teachers to provide
one-on-one help to students who are
.having difficulty learning without extra
; Communities in Schools of Nassau
'County (CIS) is a nonprofit organiza-
tion of educators, community leaders
and volunteers dedicated to providing
at-risk students with case management,
"coaching and academic assistance in
:hopes that those students dan'avoid
the downward spiral of failure and frus-
'tration that ends with failure to gradu-
ate from high school.
: CIS has been serving Nassau
County since 1993. It has contributed
lo improvement in grades, promotion
rates and graduation levels at every
(school, every year it has been able to
:provide its services within that school.
Superintendent John Ruis has
described CIS as "relentless in the pur-
suit of results" and their "contribution
to educational success of struggling
,at-risk students as critical to our com-
"munity." Principals, teachers and par-
:ents of students who have been helped
:by CIS agree that it provides an invalu-
:able agent to their ability to educate
heir students.
Currently CIS provides intensive
:on-site services to over 600 students in
'Fernandina Beach Middle School,
,Fernandina Beach High School, Yulee
:Middle School, Yulee High School,
Callahan Middle School and Hilliard
,Middle/ Senior High School. Over 100
'additional students are provided reme-
diation services during the summer.
:The numbers of students who are
accepted into those programs are only
a fraction of the students who could
:benefit. Enrollment in CIS services is
'limited by the level of grants, commu-

nity donations and volunteerism. As
the economy faltered financial support
has decreased materially.
As this is being written, the need for
CIS is growing substantially. Families
are struggling and children are dis-
tracted by the stress of family pres-
sures. But whether the volunteer and
financial support will rise in propor-
-tion to the increased need is the chal-
lenge to be answered by the citizens of
Nassau County. Susan Milana the exec-
utive director.of CIS put it this way,
"We have learned how to partner in
service to our most disadvantaged chil-
dren and to help them overcome obsta-
cles to success in school so they may
achieve in life, but we aren't immune
from the realities of this world. We
need the support from our communi-
ty to continue."
As I've engaged as a board member
and volunteer tutor, I've seen support
through grants and in-kind resources
increase to 74 percent of the $950 annu-
al cost per child to provide intensive
CIS services. But the remaining $252
per child is still needed from the com-
munity. Unfortunately, without addi-
tional community sponsors this year
200 children will start school without
mtnuchlneeded services.

building lives, please contact Susan
Milana at 321-2000 or susan@cisnas-
sau.org. You can also charge a tax-
deductible donation online at www.cis-

The theme of this year's celebra-
tion Older Americans: Connecting
the Community pays homage to the
many ways in which older adults bring
inspiration and continuity to the fabric
of our communities. Their shared his-
tories, diverse experiences and wealth
of knowledge have made our culture,
economy and local character what they
are today.
Older Americans are more active in
community life than ever before. Here
in Nassau County, seniors step up to
help other seniors.They deliver meals,
help with home repairs and wheelchair
ramps, assist with shopping, offer com-
paqionship, counseling and care. Their
efforts remind us that when older
adults are active and engaged in their
communities, everyone benefits. Older
adults are out and about giving back

Our seniors are mentoring the lead-
ers of tomorrow, taking to heart the
need for intergenerational learning to

Fernandina Beach has been the
home of the East Nassau County
Chapter #4608 of the National AARP
Organization and all of Nassau County
since 1989. The local chapter received
their charter due to the efforts of sev-
eral local individuals, some of those
responsible have passed away but
their efforts through the years are still
remembered by the chapter members.
In 1994, the chapter met at Shoney's
Restaurant and Hotel on Sadler Road
and had a membership of over 200
members. Each month the members
joined in celebrating with a catered
breakfast by Shoney's and held the
meetings following their breakfast
Several of those members passed
away but were active in the local city
history of Fernandina Beach during
their lives. Remembering one, Anne
'Mdntgomery, who was a dedicated
and devoted activist and participated in
many activities in Fernandina both
political and volunteering by serving in
the many civic area, i.e., Airport
Committee, began the local "Women's
History Month in March" observed
in the city of Fernandina. Anne was
president of our chapter in 1994, also
panelist in the chapter's political
forums for many years. She passed
away several years ago, still active up
to her death.
Following Anne as president was
Tom Northey, also very active in the
community political and civic activi-
ties for many years. Tom still lives in
Fernandina and enjoys retired years.
Tom served on many local boards and
volunteered for our political forums as
a panelist.
Many other individuals are still
active in the local chapter affairs here
in Fernandina and help the chapter in
their many civic and community proj-
ects. Betty Beugnet, a past election poll
clerk both city and county elections,

and has volunteered for many civic
and other projects. Betty joined in 1990
and is still active in our chapter in 2011.
Another member comes to mind,
Norma Butler, she did give blood pres-
sure tests each month to members as
she was registered nurse for many
years. One member, FayJones,'served
as secretary for several years and
board member. These are only a few of
the past members who are still in our
After I became president in 1996,
Fernandina Beach citizens from sev-
eral local nonprofit and civic organi-
zations decided to organize a voter's
education coalition and became known
as a political activist group interested
in educating citizens, signing up voters,
and trying to strengthen the citizens'
desire and knowledge of the candi-
dates. Ele Corburn (deceased) and
Patrick Sabadie were involved along
with the AARP chapter in this 11-mem-
ber group.
Through the past several years, due
to many issues i.e., aging, disagree-
ing with national issues, many AARP
members are falling away from one of
America's most powerful senior
While our local chapter abides by
the national rules, we as a local chap-
ter offer many benefits -we volunteer
in community activities, support our
veterans in local veterans' hospitals,
children and youth programs, donate
to local charities such COA Meals on
Wheels, COA clients, members donate
quilts and other things to women's
abuse centers, just to name a few.
I encourage and invite you to join

A recent seven-part presentation
on autism by PBS on the News Hour
with Jim Lahrer was, at times, heart
Robin McNeil, Jim's former co-
anchor, was the narrator.
Robin's grandson, Nick, is a victim
of autism.
Robin's daughter, Katherine, spoke
about the helplessness she feels when
she reminds her doctors that before
Nick was given DPT (diptheria, per-
tussis, typhoid) shots, he had been a
perfectly healthy baby.
Almost immediately after having
the shots, he became unfocused, irri-
table, crying uncontrollably most of

the time.
These conditions have continued
in Nick, who is now 9 years old.
According to Nick's mother,
Katherine, no one in the medical com-
rhunity, nor her own dadand reporter,
Robin McNeil, is listening to her.
"Nothing's been proven," say her
doctors and her dad, that DPT shots,
which contain mercury, are the cul-
According to the PBS report, bil-
lions have been spent on genetic
research in order to find answers, yet
leading, they say, to "nowhere."
Unfortunately, hot one of the seven-
part presentations dealt with the pos-
sibility that malnutrition, beginning
with the mother's body before the
child's conception, continuing into the
womb, into infancy, adolescence and
adulthood, could contribute to autism.
Yet the Nutrition Almanac, copy-
right 1973 (Nutrition Search, Inc.)
pages 125-126, suggests that large
amounts of all B-vitamins with extra
individual Bs, along with vitamin C
and E, could make a remarkable dif-
ference because "autism could sterm
from vitamin deficiency."
In this world, it seems we have two
choices: either we choose allopathic
medicine, treating us with medications
as we deal with symptoms of diseases
and not causes; or we can choose alter-
native medicine, creating an ongoing
epidemic of health.
Many doctors are going the route of
alternative medicine.
For little Nick's sake, hopefully his
mother, Katherine, will see an M.D.
who practices alternative medicine.
According to the Nutrition Almanac
and other reliable publications, it's not
too late for Nick and millions ol other
human beings not yet conceived, those
now growing in their mother's womb,
infants, adolescents and adults. .'
It's not too late to become wellfor-
tified with excellent nutrition. .'
With common sense, intelligent,
professional nutrition advice, result-
ing in healthy lifestyles, we could all say
"goodbye' to autism and other dis-
That, in itself, would be a miracle.

Kimble had the desire to serve

All things are delivered to me of
my father; and no man
knoweth who the son is, but
the father; and who the father
is, but the son; and he to whom the son
will reveal him.
Another one of God's servants has
gone home to receive his reward.
Bishop Andrew Kimble Jr. was brought
up in the church by a loving and caring
mother, which was his beginning of a
deep love for God and a desire to serve
Him and His people. He was able to per-
ceive things about the Godhead in order
to understand God's plan for human-
kind. There must have been times when
he.moved by faith on what was stirring
inside him. The inward witness was the
most reliable force working to keep him
walking in the victory of the cross.
Bishop Kimble loved the word of
God and was astute in revelation knowl-
edge of the word. He was a visionary
person, always looking for ways to
enhance where he worshipped as a
faithful member and to establish
churches for God.
He did not believe Christians needed
to fail in anything. Equipped with the
authoritative voice of the Holy Ghost,
and the inward witness of the voice of a
regenerated human, he was to win all
the time because his Holy Ghost spirit
revealed the father and the son to him.
His loving parents, the late Alfred

and Lucille Rainey,
would not withhold
from him the values,
standards and essen-
Stials that would cause
him to become victori-
ous, and no one would

body the information to

News from The Amelia Island Club

The Amelia Island Club has made
memberships available to families who
live outside of Amelia Island Plantation.
Mike Ryan, general manager of the
Amelia Island Club, stated, "Until the
formation of the new equity club last fall,
area residents who lived outside of
Amelia Island Plantation and Summer
Beach were excluded from joining the
Amelia Island Club. The club has now
made a limited number of memberships
available to any qualifying family who
wishes to enjoy the outstanding ameni-
ties available here on the Amelia Island
Membership in the Amelia Island
Club provides access to the member-

THE Point golf course
AMELIA ISLAND and clubhouse and
CLUB the Ocean
Clubhouse with its
two restaurants, the Ocean View Bar,
and its popl/beach complex. Members
also can enjoy playing at the Omni
resort-owned Pete Dye Oak Marsh golf
course and the Dye and Bobby Weed
Ocean Links course. Additionally, they
can use all the resort facilities, such as
the health and fitness center, 23 Har-Tru
tennis courts, the Beach Club and the
Dunes Club swimming pool.
"In my short tenure here, I have dis-

covered how active the social life is for
our members. We have golf, tennis, din-
ing, bridge and mah jong groups, to
name a few, and many other members
simply enjoy going to club-sponsored
parties and social events. All members
value the 20 percent discount that Omni
gives them when utilizing their shops
and restaurants as well as the daily chil-
dren's programs that Omni offers resort
guests and members. It's a pretty good
life and now you don't have to live inside
of the Plantation to enjoy it," Ryan said.

Waves, joggers and

Instantly the scene changed.
What just moments before was a
beautiful picture of nature at rest,
now had erupted into absolute
chaos. From hundreds of birds
standing quietly together to explo-
sive confusion, it was hard to believe
that a single unexpected wave had so
much power.
For me, the whole thing felt a bit
like Alfred Hitchcock's movie "The
Birds." If you've seen the movie, you
know why I was glad to be in my car.
Thankfully, they weren't looking to
eat me; they were just trying to fig-

the dense morning fog, it was a won-

close to her mother and

couldn't shake the loneli-

so intense that she began
seriously considering mov-

"I prayed about it and
asked God to open doors to
get us back home if that's
what He wanted," she said.
Evidently God had other
plans, because the emptiness
was filled abundantly when
Neighbor Brenda Meadows

in the nine months since she
first walked through the
church doors.
"I love the fact that when I
am at church I feel the pres-

very much family-oriented.
The people are warm and
genuine and accept you with
open arms, no matter what
your background. I have
instantly gained new friends
and family!"
The fellowship of the

program has enhanced the
bond with her spiritual fami-
"Groups have dinner and
fellowship together in each
other's homes for a period of
time, and then switch to a
new group. It gives people a
chance to really get to know

one another."
Highfill says her children
Christian and Chloe are
thriving at the church as
well, and she's grateful for
the support and spiritual
nourishment that helps keep
them on the right path.
When not busy doing
order entry and customer
service at Samsonite in
Jacksonville, Highfill enjoys
spending time with family,
hanging out with friends,
reading her Bible and drink-
ing coffee. Canine compan-
ions Floyd and Pixie round
out the Highfill family.
Living Waters World
Outreach Center is located at

59 perfect FBMS students

For theNews-Leader

What's the matter with kids today?
Sometimes we focus only on the "problem"
kids and what they do. Let us not forget to praise
the "good" kids. Proudly boasting about our 2011
Florida writing scores, it is with great honor that
Fernandina Beach Middle School presents the list
of 59 students who scored 6.0, a perfect score, on
the recent "Florida Writes" test. Unusually high
writing scores resulted in our school being ranked
fourth in the state for FCAT writing. A job well
done to these students and their eighth grade lan-
guage arts teachers: Ruth Day-Hardin, Renee
Thompson and Heather Stefanski.
Nothing wrong with these kids we are all for-
tunate to have students like these as the hope for
the future: Lauren Anderson, Savannah Bean,

Patients-often ask "Where did the term Plastic
Surgery come from?" The term Plastic surgery, is
derived from the Green, Plastikos meaning to
shape or form. The practice of Plastic Surgery
originated from the treatment of deformities of
war many centuries ago. It is still used today to
correct deformities of war and civilian injuries.
Plastic Surgeons also treat congenital deformities
such as cleft lip, cleft palate. syndactily (when
hands lack individual finger formation) congenital
new and birthmarks and correction of asymmetri-
cal body parts just to name a few procedures
The term has evolved in our present day cul-
ture to include aesthetic (or cosmetic) proce-
dures such as breast enlargement or reduction.
abdominiplasty, facelift and eyelid surgery for
both cosmetic and reconstructive reasons.
Reconstruction of breasts after cancer or from
malformation from birth also were developed by
Slastic Surdgeons and performed at Aesthetic
Center of Jacksonville.
Another question I am frequently asked is Do
all'Plastic Surgeons do hand surgery?" All Plastic
Surgeons are trained and tested in hand surgery
as part of their 7 year post doctoral training pro-
gram. The majority of Plastic Surgeons of my age
do because they were General Sugery trained
and. they then went on to specialize. In my years
as a Plastic Surgeon I have cared for many vary-
ing hand injuries and treated many degenerative
problems of the hand as well.
So as you might imagine, the specialty of
Plastic Surgery is quire broad and encompasses
all areas of the body and
interfaces with most
of the other med- -
ical specialities
Center of
Jacksonville oper-
ates an office in
Fernandina Beach at

building as well as the
office in Neptune Beach on

can be done right here at Baptist
Medical Center-Nassau. Call

Kaywork joins Indian River State College swim team

News Leader

Aly Kaywork has always been athletic.
"Softl)all, basketball, gymnastics, soccer,
everything," said the 17-year-old Fernandina
Beach IHigh School senior. 'The summer
before my freshman year, I did every other
sport besides swimming."
But when local swim coach Bob Christian
encouraged her to come to one of his prac-
tices, Kaywork found her niche.
"I didn't decide to strictly focus on swim-
ming-until my junior year," said Kaywork, a
four-year letterman on the Pirate swim team
who has logged as many years with the YMCA
First Coast Flyers.
Kaywork collected plenty of hardware over
the past four years, including FBHS's first dis-
trict title in swimming. She took the 50-yard
freestyle title last fall at Bolles and qualified
for region and state.
She was a member of the 200-yard medley
relay team that placed second at region and
the 400-yard freestyle team that placed fourth.
Individually, Kaywork was seventh in the 100-
yard freestyle and third in the 50 free, qualify-
ing for state in both.
Kaywork placed 15th in the 100 free and
ninth in the 50 free at state and, with just she

Greene is an accomplished fine art ist tpi ializ-
ing in colored pencil. His technique emplvys bin
nishing multiple layers of pigment until the entire
paper surface is covered. The result is a luminou-
glow of color that gives a 3-dimensional il lect rt,
the subject of the painting. He is a pioneer in I he
use of water-soluble colored pencils a-. a sei i.us
medium. When people see his super-i.ali.t.lc paint-
ings, they often remark, "That's colored pencil'"
Greene is the author of nine art instruction
books published by North Light Books and five
DVDs. His colored pencil paintings and articles
have appeared in International Artist and
American Artists. Greene's colored pencil'paint-
ings have won many pirc.rigious awai ds and have

rich in color and luminosity. She has been painting
for.more than 20 years and has studied with the
best painters of the 21st century. Angelhart says
"painting is my passion, whether in oils or water-
colors. Traditional oils are like applying colored *
butter to a canvas ... a luscious process I could
never tire of. Family portraits in oils have been the
classic medium over the ages to preserve a loved
one's image and spirit."
For Angelhart, painting a portrait in watercolor
is a lot like raising a child. It is a tightrope act, an

clude on May 29 at 2:30 p.m.

tion over a span of years by

follows a handful of promising
kids through a system that
inhibits, rather than encour-
ages, academic growth.
