Close library?

Ax firefighters?
Nassau County Commissioners
have scheduled two special meetings
to discuss the budget after balking at
many proposed cuts in services rec-
ommended in light of a projected
shortfall in 2011-12.
Those suggested cuts include clos-
ing a county library and laying off nine
The county is projected to receive
.about $5 million less in tax revenue in
the next fiscalyear, which begins Oct.
1- a situation that may force the com-
mission to decide between making
deep cuts in services or raising the
property tax rate. But several succes-
sive years of shrinking revenues could
mean there's not much left to cut from
the county budget without significantly
impacting services.
Among the cuts suggested by the
Office of Management and Budget at
the commission's recent budget work-
shop were the elimination of up to
nine county jobs, reduction of grants
and aid, the closure of a library and the
elimination of up to nine firefighters.
County Manager Ted Selby
reminded the commissioners that the
suggested cuts were only preliminary;
since the county has not yet received
final numbers'on tax revenue from
the Property Appraiser's Office. Those
numbers, Iby l.id. are due July 1.
"The budget process is ongoing.
This is just a step in the process," he
said. "We do not have anything official
from the property appraiser as to tax-
able" value, so we're basically using
last year's numbers (a decline of)
10 1/2 percent.
"We are suggesting you consider
these items. What we would like to'
achieve today is to leave here with a
consensus from the five of you that

Violinist Eden Rewa, age 6, in a recital at St. Michael Academy, has been accepted into the
Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestra.

A rare talent' at age 6

joins youth symphony

' News-Leader

though Eden Rewa is not your typical 6-year-
old, her mother is still reluctant to use the
f"'. word "prodigy."
But "prodigy," which means "exceptional
takl-ni," does seem to apply to Eden, a kindergartner
at St. Michael Academy who was recently accepted
into the Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestra.
F. I.n'. in her, Katie Rewa, who teaches music at
St. M kHi ,-I Ai.,I.d,:. ,,y in Fernandina Beach, says
Eden's audition with the symphony was unusual in
that Eden'was accepted immediately.
"It's very rare for a 6-year-old to audition for the
symphony," says Katie, who was trained as a concert
pianist. During the conductor audition, she says,
Eden only got halfway through when the conductor,
Rocco DeGeorgio, stopped the audition.
"He came out and said she's in," says Katie Rewa.
"He said it is very rare for a child to play the way she
plays. He didn't use the word 'prodigy', but he said we
should take it seriously." Normally, she says, musi-
cians are not notified of acceptance for several weeks.
Katie Rewa says Eden has been musically oriented


'Eden hummed tunes even before
she could talk.'
since she was a baby. "Eden hummed tunes even
before she could talk," Katie says. "I used to lay her
on my lap playing the piano when she was an infant."
When Eden was 2 years old, her parents took her
to a concert by the jacksonville Symphony C' i.h4i! a
The other mothers told Katie she should bring Eden
to see The Wiggles, a children's musical group that
was in town. Instead, her parents decided to bring
Eden to hear Beethoven's Symphony No. 9.
"It's a very long symphony," says Katie. "She sat
through the entire thing and conducted. She just
loves music."
Katie says Eden was asking to play the violin, a dif-
ficult instrument to learn, since the age of two. When,
she was four years old, Eden finally got her first child-
sized violin.

City residents opposed to the
expansion of short-term rentals
achieved a small but significant victo-
ry at Tuesday's Planning Advisory
Board meeting.
After residents protested, the board
voted unanimously to not make cer-
tain changes in the city's comprehen-
sive plan regarding resort rentals.
Residents had objected to city staff
taking out a phrase that restricted
"hotels, motels, bed and breakfast
units, resort rentals, or other forms of
transient accommodations" and replac-
ing it with "incompatible non-residen-
tial uses," saying the new phrasing was
too vague.
As a result of Tuesday's vote, both
phrases will be left in, at least for now.
According to City Attorney Tammi
Bach, the comprehensive plan is a pol-
icy document, but an important one
because city ordinances must be con-
sistent with the plan's language.
Another aspect to the rental zon-
ing issue is that the state has new leg-
islation that says the city cannot put any
new restrictions on vacation or resort
rentals after July 1. According to Bach,
that law should become official by June
15, unless it is vetoed.
A resort rental dwelling permit
allows for vacation rentals of less than
four weeks. Only the high-density res-
idential district in the city allows for
these types of rentals. However, some
homes in medium- and low-density
neighborhoods have resort-rental per-
mits that were "grandfathered in"
before resort-rental ordinances were
passed in 2000.
City commissioners at their March
15 meeting instructed city staff to make
initial revisions to the city's compre-
hensive plan to allow resort rentals in
more areas. Those revisions, submitted
by City Planner Kelly Gibsonr, had not
yet met with final commission approval.
About a dozen residents attended
Tuesday's PAB meeting to discuss sev-
eral upcoming amendments to the

blimp'"Spirit of Innovation," which spent Tuesday night and
Wednesday at the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport. The blimp
was to return to its home base in Pompano Beach on Wednesday,
but poor weather en route caused it to turn around and return to the
airport. Goodyear has been flying airships since 1925. Each is 192
feet long, 50 feet wide and 59.5 feet high, has twin engines and uses
helium for lift. Each blimp has a ground support team of 18 people

Mrs. Lena Pearl Johnson
Mrs. Lena Pearl Johnson of Fernandina
Beach, peacefully passed away Sunday, May 29,
2011 at Taylor Home in Jacksonville, Florida.
Born in Haywood County, Tennessee, Pearl
was one of seven children born to the late Edward
and Cora Mathias Joyner.
Wedded in 1943 to Watson
Perkins "Red" Johnson, the two
settled in Baxley, Georgia until
moving permanently to
Fernandina'Beach in 1955 to
raise their family.
S Pearl is fondly remembered
as a tedious gardener with an affection for fresh,
home-grown fruits and vegetables. As years pro-
gressed, even the local fire department enjoyed
frequent visits with Mrs. Johnson after the pur-
chase of an alert button used to assist when she
took a tumble in her yard. Her grounds were a
passion and weeds were not tolerated. The fam-
ily will continue to reminisce of days harvesting
and canning Pearl's prized crops.
Fishing trips with Granny flood the memo-
ries of her children and grandchildren. Although
fishing from the jon-boat was an all-time favorite,
memories of catching that night's dinner include
the jetties and sometimes local creeks. Tales
from these treasured times still bring a smile to
the lives she touched.
Pearl loved the Lord and served the First
Baptist Church faithfully where she was a teacher
and worked diligently with the ladies' groups.
Even in the twilight of her years, she served
unfailingly in daily devotion and prayer. Each
week she waited patiently to receive the church's
prayer list in the mail.
Preceded in death by her husband, "Red," in
Mav 2001, Mrs. Johnson moved to Taylor Home
in 2007 where she enjoyed Dominoes, Scrabble,
.Rumikube and many other games. Even the
,Saturday before her heavenly departure, she was
found enjoying a game of bingo with friends and
staff. The family thanks the staff, residents and
volunteers of Taylor Home for their love and
care of Mrs. Johnson. Pearl was welcomed enthu-
siastically, made many friends and considered
Taylor Home her home.
Pearl leaves behind two sons, Watson Perkins
"Perk" Johnson, Jr. (Kathy) and Dr. Robert Wayne
Johnson, both of Fernandina Beach, Florida, a
brother, Jimmy Joyner of Corinth, Mississippi,
four grandchildren, Marcene (Mike) Pullen,
MarkJohnson, Robert M. (Shelley) Johnson, Dr.
Jennifer Johnson, four great-grandchildren,
Andrew, John Savannah, Burton and several
nieces and nephews.
Pearl will be laid to rest aside her late husband
today, Friday, June 3, 2011, at 11:00 a.m. during
graveside funeral services in Bosque Bello
Cemetery. The Reverend Jeff Overton, Senior
Pastor of First Baptist Church of Fernandina
Beach, will be officiating. Her family received
friends from 5:00-7:00 p.m., Thursday, June 2, at
Oxley-Heard Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to

The Nassau County

May 25 joint meeting between
the two boards.
Commissioners said they'd
received complaints from citi-

unfairly cited. Many members
of both boards said they felt

'Above-average' hurricane

activity forecast this year

The Colorado State

team is calling for 16 named
storms in the Atlantic basin for
the 2011 season.
Above-normal sea surface
temperatures and expected
reduced vertical shear in the
tropical Atlantic along with near-
neutral El Nifio conditions will
likely contribute to an above-
average season, the team
reported. The team held to its
April prediction of 16 named
storms with nine of the 16
becoming hurricanes in the
Atlantic basin between June 1
and Nov. 30.
Five are expected to develop
into major hurricanes (Saffir/
Simpson category 3-4-5) with
sustained winds of 111 mph or

"Based on our historical
analysis along with our current
forecast, the probability of a
major hurricane making landfall
. along the U.S. coastline is
approximately 72 percent," said
Klotzbach. "These probabilities
are based on the idea that more
active seasons tend to have
more landfalls, but coastal res-
idents should prepare the same
way every year for landfall,
regardless of how active or inac-
tive the forecast might be."

If you own a home... or have assets worth at least
$100,000... you owe it to yourself- and your family -
to get the facts on living trusts. If you think you are
protected withJi simple Will ... think again ... In many
cases a Will guarantees your estate will go through
probate, which means your family will not be able to
take possession of your estate for many months or even

Plus, if your entire estate, which includes life insurance
and retirement plans, is over $1,000,000 in 2013, your
family may owe estate taxes which could amount to

41-55% of the value of your estate. This means that
your family may have to sell some assets just to pay the
estate taxes!

A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize estate
taxes. Plus, a living trust may protect your estate if you
become incapacitated during your lifetime by avoiding a
guardianship. This means your estate may be managed
as you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit.

With vacation season
upon us, there are trips to be
planned and part of that deci-
sion is how to get there. The
first choice most people
gravitate to is driving their
own car, which is viewed as
the least expensive option.
The second most popular
choice would likely be flying,
particularly for longer dis-
tances. Seldom utilized by
people with newer depend-
able cars is renting. So let's
look at ourselves as the mod-
ern-day family of four look-
ing to make an out-of-town
When analyzing driving
our own vehicle, most don't
look deeply enough at the
total cost. We may figure the
gas cost, but seem to over-
look meals and lodging.
Beyond that is the wear and
tear and depreciation on our
vehicle. If your trip takes you
1,500 miles and your car is
under 100,000 miles, figure
$400 to $500 lost value. Miles
have value when leasing and
certainly do when you are
the owner.
If you compare driving
with flying, factor in fuel,
meals, lodging and deprecia-
tion. And how about wear
and tear on the driverss?
Don't kill Dad on his first day
of vacation by having him
drive 700 miles. He, and in
many cases Mom, have
worked hard for these short
vacation opportunities.
Look into flying when
possible. Carriers offer great
deals if you book well
enough in advance. A poten-
tial vacation roundtrip for a
family of four might only be
$800 to $1,000. When the
true costs of driving are
added up, it can be a surpris-
ingly reasonable alternative.

that there were safe minority
seats. A good example of that
is the district Congresswoman
Corrine Brown presently has.
The district stretches from
Jacksonville over 100 miles
south to Orlando and is fairly,
narrow in some areas. This
district was put together with
as many African-American and
minority voters as was possi-
ble. The result has been a safe
district for Congresswoman
Brown for a number of years.
It has also made what
could have been toss-up
Republican districts bordering
on Brown's district safe ones
for Republican Congressmen
Andbr Crenshaw, Cliff Stearns
and John Mica.
It is my guess if the new
constitutional amendment is
strictly followed Congress-
woman Corrine Brown will be
a loser, as will several other
incumbent minority
Democratic representatives.
The Democrats could possibly
ppick,up two House seats in
Florida, which could shift the
total to 19 Republicans and
eight Democrats.
It doesn't appear in Florida,
and from the people I have
talked to around the country,
that there will be any mass
,exit.,pf incumbents based on
Reapportionment. There will
"be the normal casualties, espe-
cially in the Midwest and
Northern states where incum-
bents have to run against each
other, sometimes those in the
same party.
The U.S. House of
Representatives has had a
total of 435 members for the
last 100 years. During that
time the population in the
United States has tripled. The
minority population in our
country continues to grow
with it reaching close to 36
percent by the 2012 elections.
In 2008, in the presidential
race Obama drew 98 percent
of the African-American vote,
67 percent of the Hispanic
vote and 60 percent of the
Asian vote, but only 44 percent
of the white vote. It appears
obvious as the minority popu-
lations grow Democratic can-

Want to live

to be 100?
Several thousand years ago, I imagine a
scribe showing up at the homes of
Methuselah, Jared, Noah and those other
old-tithers of early biblical days and he
asked the obvious question: "What must
one do to live to 900 years old?"
Well, we'll never know if that happened.
But someone today is showing up at the
homes of centenarians -7people who live to
be 100 or older and asking similar ques-
'His name is Steve Franklin, and his mis-
sion is to capture the wit and wisdom of
these long-lived people until he reaches the
golden age himself. His chances and your
chances of living to 100 are the best
they've been since
Methuselah. America's
population of centenarians
has roughly doubled in
the last 20 years.
So far, Franklin has
interviewed 120 centenari-
ans and four super-cente-
narians people over 110.
He's citing a book, due
FROM, )ouu this cear. and he and
.-'THE. his team ahaye p-oduced an
HOME hour-long keynote presen-
tation called "100:
OFFICE Authentic Wisdom from
--...- America's Centenarians,"
which features sound bites
PhilHudgms from several of the video-
taped interviews. I saw the presentation
recently and then telephoned Franklin for
more details.
Franklin's questions focus on three
areas. money, work and life Not all said the
same things, of course, but there were
some common attitudes For example
On money: "Most of them, not all, but
most, have lived on a cash basis," Franklin
said. "If they didn't have the cash for it, they
didn't buy it."
On work: "Almost every one of them
loved what they did. It didn't matter
whether they made a lot of money or little
money or whatever."
On life: "They accepted blame for every-
thing," Franklin said. "They haven't blamed
and don't blame anybody else in life that
hurt them ... or got in their way or chal-
lenged them along the way..:. They don't
have that entitlement mentality They're just
fully responsible people."' :
And they' have a sense of humor.
The one centenarian I know, Lessie
Smithgall of Gainesville,fGa., amused'me
time and again with off-the-wall comments
as we met at her home to write her memoir.
"I go to a number of doctors, and I trust my
nurses will keep the appointments straight,"
she said one day. "If I ever end up at veteri-
narian John Sundstrom's office, instead of
Chatte the cat, I'm'afraid he will want to put
me to sleep."
I telephoned my friend after speaking
with Franklin and asked her how to stay
healthy and live long. After all, she chal-
lenged Walter Cronkite to a tennis match
when she was 89. Well, she said, you need
to eat right, find a good doctor, exercise and
give up cigarettes. She gave up her three
cigarettes a day at the age of 97.
She didn't say it, but it also helps to give
of yourself, something she's done her whole

" Sand dollars make a rich man

We were at the beach recently and my kids
were playing with our grandson in a tide pool.
He was mesmerized.
Tide pools. Wow, talk about memories.
A long time ago, it seems like the beach
was full of tide pools, long narrow lakes of
cool, clear seawater. We played in them for
hours. Sometimes the outgoing tide created a
current in the pool and you could lie on your
back or on your inner tube or on your raft and
float from one end to the other. Some clays we
barely ventured into the waves at all because
we had so much fun entertaining ourselves in
the tide pools. All you needed was a friend or a
sibling or two, a sand bucket, shovel and plas-
tic sieve, a little raft to float on and you had all
the tools for an amusing day on the water.
Back in the day, tide pools around here
were full of all kinds of interesting sea life.
Hermit crabs in colorful shells of all shapes
and sizes patrolled the sandy bottoms like sen-
tries. Every now and then, a hermit crab
would decide he liked his neighbor's shell bet-
ter than his own and he'd snatch him out of it
and confiscate it, leaving his neighbor tem-
porarily homeless until h.e figured out a house
swap was in order.
Sand dollars were plentiful, too. -. iiin -
you could just barely see their partially buried
circular outline in the clear water and other
times you had-to inch along and feel for them
with your fingers. The greenish, prickly

skinned live ones were plenti-
ful. A rare find was a great
big dead one, bleached white
by the sun and perfectly
shaped with no pieces miss-
ing. If I had a real dollar for
every sand dollar I picked up
on the beach between the
ages of 6 and 11, I'd be a rich
CUP OF man today. Come to think of
CU uOF it, I guess I am rich because I
JOE have such a treasure trove of
..... all these wonderful beach
memories from my child-
Joe Palmer hood.
When we tired of playing in the tide pools,
we walked along the shell line, scouring the
beds of seashells for interesting and unusual
specimens. I haven't seen olive shells like we
used to find in abundance in a long time.
Where did they go, I wonder? And those ubiq-
uitous cockle shells. No shortage of them
these days. I remember picking up some that
were as large as big ashtrays. Or maybe they
just seemed that big to the eyes of a thrilled 8-
year-old from South Georgia here on vacation.
We came every summer and stayed a week.
My family was rather poor and a week was all
my dad could swing on his salary, and this in
the day when weekly beach house rentals -
my mom always called them cottages could
be had for as little as $30 a week. I remember

dad grousing when it went up to $40. I fell in
love with this beach before I was old enough
to go to school. I met my first love here when I
was what, 14? Every summer we vacationed
here for a week. We made new friends and
swore to be friends forever and then we went
home and breathlessly counted down the long
autumn, winter and spring months until our
week on this magical beach rolled around
When I got out of boot camp, this was the
first stop I wanted to make. I needed to get
some peace of mind and recharge my batteries
before commencing to give Uncle Sam the
next four and a half years of my life. The
beach went through a spell where weekly
vacation rentals weren't allowed but that's
changed now. I'm glad. I wonder how many
others there are out there like me who are
here today as aging adults because our mamas
and daddies and grandparents staked out a
place on the beach here for a week each sum-
mer. I'll bet there are a ton of us. And I'll bet
all their memories are as delightful as mine.
When I was growing up, I always wanted to
live here. Here and nowhere else. I envied the
local kids we met each summer who got to
stay when summer was over.
I guess tide pools are as magical as they
ever were. Maybe it just takes the innocent
eyes of a child to see it

Improving education
During the most recent legisla-
tive session we found ourselves
being inundated with hot topics, but
nothing more important than that
concerning our children and their
quality of education. In the midst of
a struggling economy our children
are the hardest hit. I feel that our
state lawmakers see that and made
a strong effort to make improve-
I believe teachers should be
rewarded for the dedicated service
they provide and will continue to
provide while teaching our children.
Offering merit pay to educators will
be an added incentive that keeps
them eager to go above and beyond.
As the father of an 11-month-old
son, I want what's best for'his future.
I believe that the best investment
we could make is the level of edu-
-cation we provide for our children.
After all, we are not just dealing with
children this school year or next.
We are dealing with the future of
this nation. Why then are we even
considering lowering our standards?
I am proud to .i,' .., I1,11 i our state
legislators are wor6kifig hardeli to
create positive reinforcement that
ensures a better quality of teaching
foi our children, while providing
better support to the teachers who
have the best interests of their stu-
dents in mind.

Museum of History
Centre Street has a new happening place -
and it's Pepper's Mexican Grill and Cantina. The
restaurant opened in fine style on Sunday, April'
10, with a special Mexican Fiesta to benefit the
Amelia Island Museum of History.
The funds raised at the event will support
the Arthur K. and Margery Huston Freas
Children's Initiative to expand and improve pro-
grams and services for children at the museum.
Approximately 180 museum members and
guests enjoyed a lavish buffet prepared 'and
donated by the hospitable and enthusiastic staff
of Pepper's. A large mariachi band serenaded the
guests and soon had toes tapping and people
dancing in the aisles.
The board of the museum would like to thank
Reuben Garcia-Villasenor, Juan Angel and Jos6
Benavide and all of the Pepper's staff for their
generous support. In addition, we'd like to thank
Don Shaw and Tony Quattrochi for their invalu-
able assistance, Steve Buell for sharing his talent
on the classical Spanish guitar, the staff of the
museum for adding atmosphere as costumed

As a large white SUV made the
circle at Main Beach the female driv-
er brought the vehicle to a stop and
waited in the busy traffic lane as
more than a half dozen young boys
exited the vehicle and quickly made
their way to the park benches where
four or five beachgoers were relax-
ing and enjoying the view. The
young boys, I'd approximate
between the ages of 10 and 12,
swarmed the bench sitters announc-
ing they were on a scavenger hunt

and would the bench sitters "please
sign their petition?"
Well I'm not sure after seeing
the petition that anyone took them
up on it Next I was swarmed with
the same "scavenger hunt" intro-
duction and would I sign their peti-
tion? The petition, it turns out, was
a bright lime green paper with bold
capital letters on the top that read
"Candidate Petition." A quick read
revealed the paper to be none other
than a solicitation to place Aaron

Bean on the primary/general elec-
tion ballot.
I'm still puzzled as to what part of
a.scavenger hunt would include hav-
ing young impressionable boys do
the bidding of a consummate pro-
fessional politician. Who/ here was
*deceiving whom? Practice, Mr.
Bean, the art of deception on adults
and allow our youth their innocence.
Have you no shame?

Nassau foster parents get new cribs

Nassau County foster chil-
dren are snuggling up in new
cribs provided to their foster
families at no cost by Family
Support Services of North
Florida (FSS). The cribs are
in compliance with new fed-
eral safety standards that
prohibit traditional drop-side
rail cribs effective this
month. FSS provided 18 new
cribs to replace older models
already owned by foster fami-
lies in Duval, Nassau and
Clay counties.
Jim Adams, former FSS
CEO, said, "Rather than sim-
ply tracking and verifying
that foster parents are using
cribs that comply with the
new federal requirements,
FSS provided the assembled
cribs as a money-saving and
time-saving measure for our

foster parents who would
have had to replace or modi-
fy their cribs on their own."
"It's particularly appropri-
ate during National Foster
Care Month that we enhance

our customer service to fos-
ter parents and show how
much we appreciate all they
do to care for foster chil-
dren," Adams said.
FSS is also providing

FRIDAY. JUNE 3.2011/News-Leader


Anchored moving and growing in the truth

Zzzziiiiiiiiiiing fishing line began
singing out of one of my reels. Of all
the noises I like, the whine of a fish-
ing reel, when hooked to a big fish,
is one of my favorites. As I grabbed
the rod from the holder and set the
hook my wife smiled gently, knowing
how much I love to fish.
Don't ask me why I did it on this
particular day, perhaps a flashback
from 26 years ago when I worked on
my uncle's charter fishing boat, but
tying a float to the end of the anchor
rope and then moments later hook-
ing a hdge fish that began to take all
the line off my fishing reel, seemed.
more than a coincidence.
The practice is something I
learned in my youth but never saw a
need for, especially in the places



where I fish. Tying
a float to the end of
an anchor rope lets
the fisherman untie
the anchor line and
throw it overboard
or she hooks some-
thing really big. In
moments like that,
PULPIT you don't have time
NOTES to pull the anchor
up. You simply
throw the rope and
Pastor the float over so
Rob Goyette you can follow the
fish. If you don't,

the fish will pull all the line out of
your reel. If that happens, it's game
over. The once beautiful song of a

singing fishing reel abruptly stops
with a horrible snap!
Well strangely, though I'd never
seen the need to tie a float to my
anchor rope, on this particular day I
did. Stranger yet, just moments later
line was zinging out of my reel at an
alarming rate. As I hollered to my
wife to the throw the anchor rope
over, something I had not explained
to her, I watched in amazement as
150 yards of braided fishing line exit-
ed my reel, and I knew it was too late.
The sound of my line snapping as it
reached the end of the spool echoed
in my head the rest of the day.
Thankfully, after I re-rigged my
tackle and explained to my amazing
wife the principle of the anchor float,
we hooked another large fish, threw

the anchor rope over and in the end
caught the fish and returned to our.
floating anchor line.
What is it about a person's ability
to leave their current position in a
timely manner that often determines
their success or failure? As I think
about what happened to my wife and
me that day, I think about how easy it
is to get anchored to one point of
view or doctrinal position. I can't help"
but wonder how many things I've
lost because I was so set in my ways.
When I read about the people the
apostle Paul ministered to in Berea,
their example inspires me. They
understood that God's word, the
Holy Scripture, was an anchor never
to be forsaken. They also knew that
their understanding of God's word

was limited and that they needed to
be willing to move doctrinally should
He be trying to give them something
bigger than they had grasped before.
In the end, their love for the
Scripture and willingness for God to
teach them something new won
them a place of great honor in the
kingdom of God.
"The people of Berea were more
open-minded than the people of
Thessalonica. They were very willing
to receive God's message, and every
day they carefully examined the
Scriptures to see if what Paul said
was true." (Acts 17:11.God's Word

Pillbugs not considered a serious threat

Q.1 decided to clean out the shrub
.beds and remove the old wood
mulch. When I did, I dug tiup dozens of
roly-poly bugs, the insects that roll up
into little balls when you touch them.
Should I be concerned about finding so
many of these insects in my shrub bed?
A.1 applaud you for removing the old
mulch instead of just piling more
on top it is a great spring project and
should be (done every few years or so.
Mulch should only
be about 2-3 inches
thick and never piled up
against the trunk of any
,tree or shrub. You most

which are actually crus-

Pillbugs are wingless and active dur-
ing the nighttime hours, preferring to
stay cool in the damp mulch during the
heat of the day. Their reaction to touch
by rolling into a ball may be why they
were called "pill" bugs or roly-polies.
For the most part, pillbugs feed on
decaying organic material but occasion-
ally they do feed on the roots of our
prized plants.
Pillbugs can be found throughout
SFlorida, anywhere decaying mulch,
leaves or grass clippings are deposited.

Remember, Northeast Florida is in
zones 8b-9a. The plant can reach
heights up to 7 feet with a three-foot
spread so before adding this plant to
your landscape be sure you have suffi-
cient room.
The flowers come in rose-purple, red,
yellow, orange, apricot or white, which
periodically bloom from late spring
though early fall. With so many choices
of flower color, it would be surprising
not to have some place in the garden
available for this lovely plant.
Jacobinia should be grown in dap-
pled light or partial shade. It prefers
moist, well-drained soils but it is not
picky about the soil pH. Jacobinia is hot
salt tolerant, therefore it would be a
poor choice for coastal areas, along the
beach or sand dunes. Deadheading
helps improve flowering as well as stim-

People have speculated for years that
cyclist Lance Armstrong cheated
while winning seven consecutive Tour
de France titles. Now, one of them is
former teammate, Tyler Hamilton, who says
Armstrong and other team leaders "encour-
aged, promoted and took part in a doping pro-
gram in an effort to win the Tour de France"
beginning in 1999.
Hamilton was recently interviewed on "60
Minutes," retelling his account that he had
previously told federal investigators looking
into the cheating allegations. Hamilton's alle-
gations are similar to those made by Floyd
Landis, who had his 2006 Tour de France title
stripped for doping. After years of denying he
cheated, Landis came out last year, acknowl-
edging he used performance-enhancing drugs
and alleged Armstrong cheated as well.
I watched the "60 Minutes" interview and
Hamilton seemed very truthful. He and
Armstrong were friends and he appeared hurt
in having to talk about this. If true, this tells of
a widespread conspiracy to win involving team
leaders, doctors and managers.

Kidney recipient getting stronger

S.i .m.

Norman Fisher has finally
found some relief after receiv-
ing a new kidney on April 18
at the Mayo Clinic in
"He's doing great. He's
still a little weak but he's
doing fantastic. He's lost
about 35 pounds but he's got
his color back and he looks
really good," says Kathy
Fisher of her husband of 22
"Norm first became ill
about four years ago. He just
got to not feeling good and it
got worse ahd worse. Finally
he was on his way to work
one morning and he went to
the acute care center on AlA.
At first the doctor thought he
had pneumonia but then he
asked if they could do some
blood work."
It was when the blood
work came back that Fisher
was diagnosed with polycystic
kidney disorder.
According to the Mayo
Clinic website, PKD is an
inherited disorder in which
clusters of non-cancerous,
fluid-filled sacs (cysts) devel-
op within the kidney. The
cysts vary in size and as they
accumulate more fluid, they

Employed as a mechanic
at Steve Johnson Automotive
in Fernandina for over 25
years, Fisher was'often
Unable to complete a full 40-
hour week before his surgery,
but he said, "I can't quit work-
ing. If I quit working, I'll just
lay down and die. I've got to
take care of my family.",
"It could be a year before
he can go back to work," said
his wife, "and even then they
don't guarantee that he can
go back in that field because
of that environment"
With no health insurance,
the 55-year-old mechanic was
advised he'd have to accumu-
late enough money in the
bank to pay for the required
anti-rejection medications fol-
lowing surgery.
The family managed to
sock away thik amount, but
the concern now is the cost of
anti-rejection drugs. Without
Fisher's income during his
recuperation, they don't know

"We're hanging in there.
He got denied for disability
because we had too much

money after the fundraiser. So
it's a nightmare right now."
Kathy Fisher lost her job
as a security guard following
an injury.
"He is on Medicare but
even with that, they only pay
80 percent and onde you get
the kidney, Medicare won't
pay for any of the medicine."
The Kidney Foundation
obtained a secondary insur-
ance for the Fishers and had
been paying for it, but now
that he has his new kidney,
the $900 a month cost is the
family's responsibility.
In addition to printing up
fliers and posting them
around town, Kathy Fisher
placed donation jars at

The Amelia Island Museum of History,
233 S. Third St., invites you to discover
the lost local industry of pogy fishing on
Friday, June 10 at 6 p.m.
Also called menhaden, pogy fish are a
small, oily fish harvested and processed
for use in fertilizer, animal feed and other
such items. An infamously smelly affair,
pogy fishing and processing plants were
once common in the southeast.
Many plants have since closed or relo-
cated and Fernandina's were no exception.
The remnants of one such plant still stands
on the north end of the island. Owned and
operated by the Corbett family, Jim and
Charlie Corbett will discuss the history and
dirty task of catching and processing these
fish. Admission is free for museum mem-
bers with a suggested donation of $5 for
non-members. For more information, con-
tact Alex at 261-7378, ext. 102.

Diane Hamburg, mixed media/fiber artist
and exhibiting member of the.Island Art
Association, will teach a class in layering tex-
tiles with color, texture and imagery by
means of using soy wax on Wednesday, June
22 from 9 a.m.-noon at the Island Art
Association Education Center, 18 N. Second
St., Fernandina Beach.
Using soy wax as a resist, students will be
experimenting making marks on fabric using
everyday utensils, brushes and hand-made
tools. Soy wax is environmentally friendly,
nontoxic and biodegradable. Once the wax
cools and hardens, students will apply fabric

paints. Supplies provided except for fabric
and clothing. Optional are aprons and gloves.
Think about purchasing old sheets/table-
cloths and clothing at the local thrift stores or
raid your linen or clothes closets for sheets
or clothes you don't use or wear anymore.
Since you will be using fabric paints, most
fabric will work.
Cost is a $35 pre-payment requested to
hold your spot. Mail to Diane Hamburg, 2394
