$6 million loan for Forward Fernandina


'Now is the time for city to invest


ANGELA DAUGHTRY/NEWS-LEADER
Residents express opposition to city tax increases before a commission meeting Tuesday.


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
After hearing residents speak out both
in favor and against a strategic redevel-
opment plan, Fernandina Beach
Commissioners unanimously approved
the plan with no discussion Tuesday.
Later, in comments at the end of the
meeting, City Manager Michael Czymbor
would call it historic, Commissioner
Jeffrey Bunch would compare it to
President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal
almost 80 years ago and other commis-
sioners would hail the plan as being
appropriate despite hard times.
The plan, called Forward Fernandina,
will finance improvements to the water-
front and downtown, including moving
the library to Centre Street and, later on,
renovating the post office.
The first phase of the plan, scheduled
over three years, will cost $6 million.
The plan will be financed by a rev-
enue bond loan, and will most likely be
repaid by a fee on city residents' electric
bills.
Resident Andy Curtin said he was
"very disturbed that this is going for-
ward" and called the plan "a bunch of
projects that are of questionable value
and questionable need." He also noted
the city had other obligations such as


beach renourishment and paying off a
lawsuit with McGill Aviation.
"Where is that money going to come
from?" he asked. "It's ridiculous, it has to
stop."
Dee Torre, vice president of Friends
of the Library in Fernandina Beach,
urged the plan be approved and pre-
sented a petition with more than 1, 1',
signatures calling for a new library.
"Now is the time for the city to invest
(in the strategic plan)," said Max
Wohlfarth, president of the Historic
Fernandina Business A-.~.j;,,ii whose
family owns the Crab Trap restaurant at
North Second and Alachua streets and
Amelia Dream Cars on South Eighth
Street. "I don't think we can afford not to
fix the waterfront."
The plan's first phase includes open-
ing Alachua Street to vehicular traffic
across the railroad track, reconstruction
of Front Street and improving its infra-
structure and construction of a park on
the Amelia River waterfront,
Czymbor said the city's annual debt
would be around $500,000 under the 20-
year loan plan. City residents might pay
up to $2 per $100 on their electric bills to
repay the loan.
Improvements scheduled in the first

cuts out



lobbyist
GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
voted 3-2 Wednesday to not continue
the employment of attorney Buddy
Jacobs as a lobbyist next year.
Commissioner Barry Holloway lob-
bied his fellow commissioners to
renew Jacobs' contract at a 10 percent
cut, but found opposition in Commis-
sioner Danny Leeper.
Leeper said that hearing indica-
tions that a majority of spending deci-
sions will be made at the state and
local levels left him with one question
"Do we really need
someone in
(Washington, D.C.)
at the moment?"
"I'm just not pre-
pared to continue his
contract for this
year," said Leeper,
who noted that he
Jacobs would like to keep
Jacobs available for
future efforts.
Holloway countered that the coun-
ty needs to maintain its representa-
tion in the nation's capital, citing its
dependence on federal dollars for the
widening of A1A and the construction
of a new sheriff's administration build-
ing.
"There's still money in
Washington," Holloway told Leeper.
"I know we hear a lot of things going
up there, but government still goes
on. ... For what the actual cost to the
taxpayer is, I think we'll get that
returned tenfold and we have already.
... But since we do know the state's
broke, I think we need to look at all the
alternatives we can."
Commissioner StacyJohnson con-
curred anid pointed out federal funding
the county has been the beneficiary of
during Jacobs' tenure. '
"I don't think $61 million comes to
Nassau County just by accident," said
Johnson, pointing to major A1A road
work as she seconded Holloway's
motion. She told commissioners that
failing to extend the lobbyist's con-
tract after enjoying the results of his
labor would be improper, especially
with progress moving forward on a
new sheriff's administration building.
"I'm willing to support this, espe-
cially if they're willing to take a 10 per-
cent cut and then reevaluate next
year," said Johnson.
Commission Chair Walter
Boatright said he shared Leeper's con-

Resort rentals back on table


ANGELA DAUGHTRY-
News-Leader
Short-term rentals in Fernandina
Beach continue to be a divisive issue,
as was evidenced at a workshop
Tuesday on proposed amendments
to the city's resort rental ordinances.
Even though the meeting did not
idclrn". h,.till-r or not to allow resort
rentals, residents nevertheless spoke
fervently about their concerns.
Commissioner Eric Childers also
appeared to have strong feelings on
the issue, saying restrictions on resort
rentals in the city are "an abomina-
tion."
A resort rental dwelling permit
allows for vacation rentals of less than
four weeks. Only one high-density res-
idential (R-3) district in the city, near
the beach, allows for these types of
rentals.
However, some homes in medium-
and low-density neighborhoods have
resort-rental permits that were "grand-
fathered in" before resort-rental ordi-


'This law is an abomination to me,
absolutely an abomination.'
COMMISSIONER ERIC CHILDERS


nances were passed in 2000.
Proposed amendments to the ordi-
nances, presented by City Attorney
Tammi Bach, include:
annual renewal of resort rental
permits
an annualfee of $200
annual inspections of rental units
that renters openly display their
resort permits
that advertisements for resort
rentals include the dwelling permit
number
all resort rental owners must file
their dwelling permit with the home-
owners' association within 10 days
a $1,000 fine for violation of per-


mit requirements.
Elizabeth Rawson, who owns a
duplex on First Avenue with ocean
views, told commissioners it was "pre-
posterous" that the city was putting
restrictions on resort rentals.
Rawson added that she had many
potential renters who were respectable
people, but she now has to send them
to St. Augustine. -
"Until the year 2000 we didn't have
an ordinance of any kind (restricting
resort rentals)," Childers said. "This
law is an abomination to me, absolute-
ly an abomination."
Resident Ron Holmes suggested
changing the zoning from R-1 or R-2,


which do not allow resort rentals, to R-
3 to allow for more resort rentals.
Bach said after the meeting that
although a new state law prevents
cities from restricting resort rentals,
the zoning designation could still be
changed.
However, the city can no longer
pick and choose in which zones resort
rentals are allowed, Bach said.
But according to Community
Dev'elopnimnt Director Marshall
McCrary, changing zoning from R-1 or
R-2 to R-3 would also open the door to
higher density in those areas, includ-
ing multi-family dwellings and con-
dominiums.
R-1 and R-2 zones allow only low-
density, suburban, detached single-
family structures.
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter
expressed'doubts there were any eli-
gible properties leftthat don't already
have resort permits.
"It's not a growing issue because

School gyms to be air-conditioned


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader

The Nassau County School
Board is moving forward with
plans to renovate school gym-
nasiums. After receiving the
nod from the Florida Depart-
ment of Education, the school
board could have air condi-
tioning installed in the gymna-
siums of seven schools as soon
as this year, said Superinten-
dent John Ruis.
Ruis said while the renova-
tions remain in the budgeting
process, they represent a pri-
ority and he wants to coordi-
nate them to coincide with
other maintenance the schools
require.
Facilities Director Kevin
Burnette said the move addres-
ses a demonstrated need, as
conditions in the gyms during
athletic events become "unbear-
able."
"It's been something we
needed to do for a long time,'
S-


relative term."
Schools scheduled to re-
ceive the renovations are
Hilliard Middle Senior, Calla-
han Middle, West Nassau High,
Yulee Middle, Yulee High,
Fernandina Beach Middle and
Fernandina Beach High.
After consulting with inde-
pendent engineers, Burnette
arrived at estimates of $300,000
per facility.
Burnette said the estimates
would vary with the individual
gyms. Some gyms, he noted,
would cost less than others,
owing to "infrastructure already
in place."
Another cost-saving meas-
ure Burnette pointed to was the
lackluster economy, which
would drive contractors com-
peting for the projects to lower
their bids.
The state Department of
Education approved the spot
survey Aug. 2 following board
approval of the measure at a
July 28 meeting.


Burnette said of the gyms,
which have lacked air condi-
tioning since the schools
opened, dating from the con-
struction of Fernandina Beach
Middle School in 1956 to as
recently as 2005 when Yulee
High School was built.
Ruis estimated the projects
had been discussed for the past
two decades, but said they
gained steam within the past
five years.
Burnette said the uses of
the gyms have expanded dra-
matically in recent years,
prompting the need for reno-
vations.
"The use of the gymnasi-


ums has changed over the
years," he said. "It's not just for
basketball anymore."
David Kramer, construction
services manager for the dis-
trict, said that while the gyms in
some cases have ventilation, it
is inadequate for functions in
which there are hundreds of
people in the gym..
"It's not just for the kids,"
said Ruis. "It's also for the par-
ents attending these contests
and activities who have to
endure the heat."
"When I was going to
school, they didn't have air con-
ditioning in the'classroomi,"
Kramer mused. "Comfiort is a

Phil Scanlan of Fernandina
Beach echoed Pikula's con-
cerns that the project could.lan-

"It was a little bit of a sur-
prise to see on the agenda the'
way it was worded about declin-
ing the maintenance contract,
and I felt like, 'God, I haven't
kept people in touch about what
we're doing,'" said Scanlan,'
referring to the initiatives of the
Amelia Island Trail team, of
which he is a member.
Ron Flick of Fernandina
Beach cited $6 billion in 2010
sales generated by the bicycle
industry as a reason to support
the multiuse trail, and pointed
to examples of similar trails that
have flourished with govern-
ment leadership.
I "For,example, in the North

"It's drawn all types of visitors


Holloway had suggested
renewing Jacobs' contract in
July, but withdrew the motion
then due to lack of support.
At a June 6 budget meet-
ing, Holloway had suggested
suspending Jacobs' contract
for one year "because there's
no money in Washington." At
a meeting June 13, however,
Holloway said that he had sub-
sequently learned there would
be federal dollars available
next year despite tough eco-
nomic times.
Jacobs was hired in 2008 as


and permanent residents and
quality of life additions to the
local communities all through
the Outer Banks."
The Amelia Island Multiuse
Trail has been a citizen-driven
initiative since its inception in
1992, said Pikula. The trail will
be an off-road path to be built
from Amelia Island'State Park
at the Nassau River bridge run-
ning north to Peters Point Park
along the east side of ALA. The
trail will be approximately 6,1
miles long, between 9 and 12
feet wide and will be paved with
asphalt.
"As its name implies, it will
be designed for all users, includ-
ing walkers, runner, bicyclists
and skaters, and b6 similar to
other multiuse trails built
throughout the nation," said
Pikula.
He said the trail's design is
approximately 60 percent com-
plete. Permit applications,
Pikula said, have begun and a
contract for construction is to
be awarded by FDOT in the
spring, with completion pro-
jected in spring2013.
"The total cost of-this entire ,,
project is,a paroxitellt $2 pl,
lion, of which $334,000 for
design have already been spent
or committed, so we're well on
our way to having this done,"
said Pikula.

he said, also spend money in
restaurants, bars, retail stores
and tourist attractions.
Griffin also noted that a New
Jersey city that banned short-
term rentals ended up nearly
having its historic district
destroyed because residents
could not afford to keep up their
properties.
Dorothea Stillwell, who also
sells real estate and rents prop-
erty, said Fernandina Beach has
always been a tourist town and
that restricting resort rentals is
"taking away the rights of thou-
sands of people."
"It's a wonder to me there
hasn't been a huge lawsuit,"
Stillwell said.
Bach said she would bring
the ordinance amendments
back to commissioners at their
next meeting for initial approval.

Five steps


to car b
People have studied and
made recommendations on
car buying for about a hun-
dred years now. I've read lots
of them and this week will cre-
ate a -new one for those who
like to do things in sequence.
The typical order of the "W"
questions is who, what, when,
where and why. Thinking
about car buying, it seems that
what, why, where, who and
when make the best pattern
for these test questions.
Maybe I am starting to think
like cub reporter Jimmy
Olsen. Since car buying takes
so many people outside their
comfort zone, it cannot be
looked at in too many different
ways.
Question 1) WHAT do I
buy?
Everything starts with
picking the vehicle of choice.
The foundation of a good deal
comes from something that'
you want to own. Compromise
may be necessary, but who
wants to start there? Within
some budget range, start with
the vehicle that answers the
question of what you want to
own over a period of years,
day in and day out.
Question 2) WHY do I
want that car?
What and why fit closely
together. Why is a self-admin-
istered check-and-balance
exercise. Is it the features, the
model, the manufacturer, the
dealer, the color, mileage,
resale, dependability, prestige,
sportiness, practicality, towing
capacity, fun factor or other
motives? Make sure you know
why this is the vehicle of
choice.
Question 3) WHERE do I
want to buy?
The choices are franchised
dealer, independent dealer and
private individual. The answer
to your "what" question will
have a lot to do with that. The
most risk is an out of warran-
ty car from an individual. It
can be just fine, butwhenyou
take delivery, it's yours. Check
it out with a mechanic first.
Dealers, both new car and
used, take trades, offer financ-
ing and are the most common
choice. Is the dealer close by?
What have you heard about
them? Do they have what I
want? -
Question 4) WHO is my
salesperson going to be?


buyingg
Who will'
have a lot to
do with the
car buying
experience.
As I have
said before,
"All sales-
people were
not created
KEFFER'S equal." If
CORNER you go visit
the dealer
who rates
RickKeffer on the first
three ques-.
tions, don't let the salesperson
derail things. Talk to or call
back the sales manager
and request a different per-
son. If the manager is not to
your liking, go back to ques-
tion three and find another
"where."
Question 5) WHEN do I
buy?
The simple answer is when
answers to questions one
through four are in place.
Once the picture is in focus,
shoot Don't be like the pho-
tographer holding up 10 polite
people while they take eons
to snap a picture. It is not that
hard to buy a car when you
have confidently done the
groundwork.
Business seems better than
normal this August. Remem-
ber that auto sales tax rev-
enues are huge to Florida. Get
out and support our state and
your local dealers. After get-
ting the kids back in school
and surviving another sum-
mer, you deserve a trans-
portation update. Have a good
week.

ates Rick Keffer Dodge Chrysler

tions or positive stories about
automobile use and ownership.

becue delights! Mike "Stick"
Herring with General
Porktitioners, a professional
barbecue cooking team com-
peting at the cook-off, has some
suggestions on how to barbe-
cue like a pro.
Invest in a charcoal grill.
Offers everything you need and
with a more reasonable
price tag. Mike suggests the
Weber One Touch Gold. The
22.5-inch model will work per.
fectly for most family grilling
needs. It's user-friendly and
offers great draft control for
regulating heat.
Buy the right charcoal.
Lump (natural charcoal) makes
a lot less ash than briquettes.
* The ash draws the moisture out
of the meat and makes clean
up much more difficult.
Use'a starter chimney.
Petroleum-based charcoal
starters waste a lot of charcoal
waiting for the fluid to burn off.
And if you don't wait long
enough after lighting, your food
could taste like kerosene.
Keep your grillclean.
Every time you use it, make
sure to heat up the cooking
grate, and clean it with a folded
up paper towel (held with
tongs) soaked in vegetable oil.
Purchase a digital probe
thermometer. Accurate to with-
in a few degrees, it will allow
you to monitor your meat and
always cook it to perfection.
Learn how to cook using
indirect heat. For thicker cuts of
meat, use an indirect heat
source by putting the charcoal
in a pile on one side of your
cooker. Then place the meat to
the other side of the grill, so
that it's not directly over the
flame, and open the top vent
over the meat. This will draw
the heat over the meat, allowing
it to cook, longer without burn-

ting, but it might not be accu-
rate, and doesn't tell us about
energy expenditure the way that
objective measures do," said
Erickson, whose imaging stud-
ies have shown that one year
of participation in modest
amounts of exercise can reverse
Alzheimer's-related atrophy in
parts of the brain involved in
memory formation.
In the new study, the
research team, led by scientists
at the Heart and Stroke
Foundation Centre in Toronto,
and at the University of
California, San Francisco,
moved a step closer to reliably
identifying just how much ener-
gy people expend.
The researchers studied
almost 200 older adults who on
average were 75 years old to
figure out how much energy
people burn during daily activ-
ities. First, they calculated the
total amount of energy used for
the day, then subtracted the
basic amount of energy the
body needs while at rest
Participants drank so-called
"heavy" water, which has a
slight chemical difference from
regular water. That allowed
researchers to track the body's
consumption of oxygen mole-
cules over time and use that to
calculate the number of calo-
ries burned.
To find out how much ener-
gy a person used while at rest,
the researchers used a method
called calorimetry to determine
the levels of carbon dioxide in
the breath.
For comparison, the
researchers also collected self-
reported activity data.
To assess cognitive function,
patients were tested on memo-
ry, concentration, orientation,


language and other categories.
The more energy spent, the
lower the likelihood of cogni-
tive impairment, the
researchers found. Patients with
the highest levels of activity
energy expenditure were 90
percent less likely to become
cognitively impaired than those
with the lowest levels of expen-
diture.
The findings are consistent
with what other researchers
have found, but Manini and col-
leagues went a step beyond by
pointing out the shortcomings
associated with using self-
reported activity.
Self-reports are highly
biased because people might
report participating in more
activity than they actually do -
or they might forget to mention
something they did. Self-reports
also often focus on sports-like
activities and fail to capture
movements such as walking
around the house or pottering
about in the garden.
The link between the onset
of cognitive impairment and
energy expenditure was
stronger when laboratory meas-
urements were used to meas-
ure activity than when self-
report data was used. In
addition, the relationship
between the amount of energy
spent and the amount of decline
experienced was more pro-
nounced for laboratory meth-
ods than for self-reports, possi-
bly because of more accurate
recording of low-intensity activ-
ity.
"The strength of the study
was that the researchers didn't
have to just ask people how
much physical activity they got
- they could actually measure
it," Erickson said.

To date every single judicial decision
involving the city vs. McGill lawsuit has
been in favor of McGill- so why another

city cannot let go of the McGill Aviation
legal issue ... to the city commissioners, it is
not out of their pocket monies ... they have
no' incentive to settle. It is public money or
taxpayer dollars, not theirs personally."

Hotmess'
The drop-off and pickup routes
for the children attending Yulee
Primary School have been changed.
This change can be termed "A Hot
Mess." Concern about the change
was conveyed by parents but
ignored. The change demands that
Small car traffic use Highway 17 to
deliver and pick up the children.
One of the problems is that all traf-
fic heading toward Kingsland, Ga.,
comes to a standstill in the morning
during dropoffs"and evenings dur-
ing pickups for at least two hours
each session.
Several accidents almost took
place because of the traffic return-
ing to Highway 17 after drop-off or
pickup. It is almost impossible for
truckers who use the highway to
transport wood, goods and servic-
es to meet their quotas. The people
who live in the Sandhill and Lessie
area will not be able to get back to
their homes without a lengthy delay
unless they take A1A to 1-95 North
to go all the way around to US 17
from the opposite directions
.. T e1rnts.-.hat have 4P that
atfenA both Yul4e Prim11r and
Yulee Elementary schools will not
be able to get their kids to their
respective school on time because
of the lengthy wait at Yulee Primary
School.
On the first day of school, I left
home at 6:45 a.m. to drop my
youngest child off at the Yulee
Primary School and still had to wait
until 8:15 p.m. before I could get
her in. My son attends Yulee
Elementary. He was late for his
class before I could even leave the
Primary School. He arrived for his
classes at 8:30 am. but class begins
at 8:15 am. The same issues were
present in the evening for pickup.
Theeducation of our children is
extremely important. The,system
of the past seemed to work well!
The new route was not planned
well, lacked coordination and exe-
cution. Our children cannot learn if
we can't get them to school and we
need to get them there on time.
Parents, students and teachers have
a schedule to meet. If this route
remains intact, these schedules will
not be met!
I am an epicourager of education
but common-sense is priceless. Let's
use some common sense in this
matter!
Bishop T.K. Coleman Sr.
Fernandina Beach

Forward Fernandna
I am writing to thank the city
commission of Fernandina Beach
for voting unanimously to move for-
ward on the Forward Fernandina
Strategic Plan. I understand that in
difficult times, it's painful to make
investments. In fact, it can be scary.
However, it's during times like these
that property is available at much
lower prices and that bids for doing
work on infrastructure and build-
ing projects are discounted as well.
It's during-times like these that suc-
cessfulinvestors make their pur-
chases. That's why they are suc-
cessful.
The same principle applies to
local government. The municipali-
ties that recognize opportunities
and act boldly are the municipalities
that are, and will be, distinctive. In
the long run, this distinction attracts
visitors who patronize our local busi-
.nesses and drives up real estate val-
ues, which contributes ad valorem
taxes to our local governing bod-
ies. Over time, the added taxes will
outweigh the cost of the projects,
Thank you, city commission.

eral government.

S Couldanother lawsuit
blooming?
If you attended the city commis-
sion meeting Tuesday you would
find it was a demonstration of com--
missioners once again being deaf
to taxpayers. Forward Fernandina
Passed unanimously by.city com-
Smissioners.
The room was full of taxpayers
who made it standing room only.
There were approximately 10 people
Sfor Forward Fernandina and the
Usual Friends of the Library crew
with possibly 80-plus other taxpayers
opposing it. Some taxpayers plead-
ed with the commissioners to put
Sthe $6 million bond on the ballot for
voters; that once again fell on deaf
ears, If they were so convinced this
was the right approach, they should
have been easily able to sway the
public, as the Greenway bond pro-
.ponents were 10 years ago. Instead,
the commissioners.were so afraid
Sthe taxpayers would vote "No" they
resorted to a backdoor approach.
If the historic district and down-
town want this so badly, they should
do away with the property tax
breaks or give all taxpayers the


same breaks. We have two com-
missioners that benefit from this
relatively unknown benefit; most
taxpayers don't have that same lux-
ury.
The city sent out a blind survey
to the employees and they came up
with some brilliant money-saving
ideas. This report is called the
"Survey Monkey." Over and over
staff stated we have too many vehi-
cles and a lot of take-home vehicles
are unnecessary. When you weigh-
out the cost of a vehicle expenses
such as insurance, gas, mainte-
nance, purchase price, etc., opposed
to 46 cents per mile, we could real-
ly save money. '
The city employees also offered
to give up some benefits such as
$6,000 for the Christmas party, out-
side janitorial service in excess of
$30,000 and the Safety Jackpot at
$13,500. A public request is allyou
need to view this document. The
information is available to all use
it
Now another,fact thatlI'm sure is
not public knowledge'-- the city
manager, city attorney and city vlerk
don't have to receive a writtefl
employee evaluation, it can now bce
give verbally. Yes, I said a verbal
evaluation that no taxpayer (as their
employer) is privy to. I don't know
of any job that has such a benefit.
One of the reasons given for this
was that "the News-Leader miscon-
strues the evaluation information."
That particular resolution is 2002-
160, so call and tell the commis-


NIlt' KBI.T niE W,.SHINGTON EXAMINE '

Ssioners that you want to see the', :

They were elected by the people
and are our supposed voice. Our
voict is telling them to stop spend-;
ing our money.
Senior citizens haven't received
acostoflivirngicrease in two years,
their insuranr' and prescriptions,
costs have continued to increase
well over that amount (at least 20
percent), food 4 41 percent, gas -
100 percent, electric 85 percent and
water 32 percent: Last year (Vice
Mayor Tim) lynter said that there
is a cost to living in Fernandina
Beach and if people can't afford it
they need toleave. Well- nice atti-
tude for someone who just voted to :
have city residents who are living
paycheck to paycheck cover a boon-
doggle thatwill benefit his business
directly, and.bo, is. paid by those
people hewaati to leave.
Unfortunately, that's what hap-
pening. Our commissioners have
all slated they'want to make their
time serving the community mem-
orable; well, they've succeeded. We
will all remember it was under them
that the taxpayers' v6ices were
silenced.

I was driving along a rural highway
recently when I came upon a scene that
almost took my breath away. It was one of
those seemingly ubiquitous roadside
shrines dedicated to the memory of someone
killed-in an automobile accident I'm on the
road quite a bit and I've gotten so used to see-
ing the little memorials of flowers and wreaths
that I usually pass them by without much
notice.
In fact, I confess to having grown a little
indifferent to the little memorials that seem to
dot the roadsides of the country like brightly
colored patches of wildflowers nowadays.
And if I really want to bare my soul and be
brutally honest, I have to admit that, during an
irritable moment here and there when the traf-
fic's bad and the sun is blinding me, I've even
been a tad resentful when passing one that I
deem to be a little over the top. I mean really,
who are you to impose your heart-shattering
grief on me, just another tired traveler wanting
to get home? Why should I have to be subject-
ed to such a display of anguish? If I wanted to
do that, I'd simply pay a visit to the nearest
cemetery or to that plot of sandy, South
:Georgia dirt where my own loved ones are
buried. ,
But my heart came to a soul-searing stop
when I happened upon this particular roadside
memorial afew days ago. There among the
flowers, vases and wreaths sat a Wilson volley-
ball. The logo was clearly visible from the


road. And that's when it hit
me. The ball could've been
put there by the parents of
the youth who died there but
my gut told me it was the
deceased kid's grieving
friends and classmates. And-
the blurriness in my eyes that
followed had nothing to do
with me having forgotten my
CUPOF sunglasses that day.
JOE I could see a little group of
.... crying teens lovingly placing
the ball among the flowers
Joe Palmer and wreath the family left
there, being sure to make
sure the label was visible from the road as if to
say, "This was Johnny or Susie's ball." When it
comes to grief, no one grieves like teens over
the death of a buddy. It's a sharp, keening kind
of anguish and they share it openly. Where
.many adults and yes, even some family mem-
bers, will hold their heads high and their jaws
clenched against the pain, the biggest, tough-
est high school football players'will break
down'and bawl like a baby at the graveside of
a friend. I've seen it too many times.
It sucks that the young have to die. I'm of
an age now that, given the chance to of fer my'
life in.ransom for that of some kid jusi begin-
ning his or hers, I'd be tempted to say hasta la
vista to my own family.and friends. I know it
sounds hokey but it's true. Kids shouldn't


have to die. They really shoQld be as invincible
as they believe i htrselves o be most of the
time. .
As I got on down the roadJrloptbe
volleyball shrine~ and had time to reflect
a bit, it came to me just why I found thai par-
ticular scene so emotionally painful. It remind-
ed mc of the death of a friend when I was a
kid. Mlostrof my friends and I were in our last
Veal-of junior high school and Steve had just
begun his first year of high school. I'll never
forget him although it's been nearly 45 years
ago.
Steve was the high-spirited jolly prankster
of the classroom ofthe littleparochial school
we at tended. If anyone cold make a mp
curse, Steve's hijinks surely could, although
there was something about him that was at the
same time so endearing to them. 7\;' r
One winter morning his first year in the
ninth grade, he was accidentally kijed by a
friend in a hunting accident.Like aloItkids,
Steve and his buddy tooQ.too manychances.
A girl in our class had a ruler she'd had for-
ever. Steve teased her relentlessly about 4and *
called it the ugly stick One day fprsonet ea-
soin, he took it, sigrnd it and gave it baW to
her. Alter he died, Martha passed the ruler
around the room one day and we all signed it.
-She reminded me of it recently. '
I'm betting that volleyball was signed by .
the dead kids' friends . :..

COMMUNITY


FRIDAY. AUGUST 19.2011/NEWS-LEADER


Preschoolers are also performers


people to see, for. the glory of
the Lord is shining upon you.
Darkness as black as night will
cover all the nations of the Earth, but
the glory of the Lord will shine over
you.
The I Can Academy at Rose-Lennie
Developmental Learning Center, where
they have been educating preschool stu-
dents ages 2-5 since 1994, held their
annual inspiration service July 15 in the
Elizabeth Jenkins Morrison Educational
Building.
This year's production was presented
by Nanette S. Autry, artistic director;
Dearsha D. Johnson, assistant director;
and Sebrina D. Smith, stage manager. It
was "Jazz Impressions," a summer per-
forming arts production featuring pose
From the book I See Rhythm by Toyomi
Igus.
At the I CanAcademy, your child can
imagineT--elieve and achieve..These
children, ages 4-12, only a few older, but
the performance they did, you would
really have believed they were much
older.
"Jazz Impressions," a mtlsical explor-
Sing the rhythmic collage of America's
preeminent art form, began with the
objective of teaching the students the
value of artistic expressions in personal
human development
S All the students developed emotion-
ally and intellectually at different times
and stages, combining at least three dif-
ferent age groups primary, elemen-


tary and middle
school.
"It was challeng-
ing," Autry said, "But
the expected outcome
was not for every child
L 7 1 to perform at the same
level or even to com-
prehend what he or
she performs.
NOW AND "Rather the desired
THEN outcome is for each
child to learn to say 'I
can' and stand unapolo-
Maybelle getically in the spot-
Kirkland light on stage and in
life for the betterment
of themselves and oth-
ers. And that they did."
They became acquainted with a sig-
nificant part of American cultural histo-
ry and the importance of self-discipline,
listening, following instructions and
appearing with confidence in front of an
audience. They also learned to show
compassion and to share their talents
and the joy of music with others, espe-
cially when they sang for elderly resi-
dents at Quality Health.
They had so much to give and they
did it very well. Our hats are off to I Can
Academy for another job well done. If
there are any videos of this production,
let us know. I'm sure some parents
would love to purchase one.
These children came from various
churches around Nassau County.
Performers were Dericka Benson,

FRIDAY. AUGUST 19.2011/News-Leader


RELIGION


Road blocks, construction and


"Ugh," my wife sighed. She had
done it again. The thought of being
late because of it was quite unnerv-
ing.
Chester Road; to my family it's
almost famous. Like the old
country song "Country roads, take
me home to the place I belong..."
Chester Road, located in the
thriving metropolis of Yulee, Florida,
is a part of the beginning and ending
of our family's day. Its long, straight,
rather boring demeanor has earned
the road a unique status in our
household. I can't even begin to tell
you how many cell phone conversa-
tions have started with, "Hi hon,
where are you?" only to hear the
familiar response, "I'm on Chester
Road."
Now if you happen to have the
privilege of singing the song


"Chester Road,
take me home,"
you know that over
the last several
weeks it's been
under construction
and thank God for
it; unless of course,
like my wife, you're
running late for a
PULPIT meeting.
NOTES Actually, if you
drove down the
road and didn't
Pastor remember that a
Rob Goyette certain section was
closed, you have to
admit, you were without excuse. For
a whole week, with flashing signs
and public notices, they told us the
construction was coming.
Fortunately, if you were one of those


people who drove all the way
to the road block before you
remembered that you should have
taken a different route, there was a
detour set up just for you.
Unfortunately, by that time you
might have been late for an impor-
tant meeting.
Now I suppose this is a good
place to admit it. One day I forgot
the road was under repairs myself.
Thankfully, in my case, I wasn't rac-
ing to an appointment, but it did
make me turn around and begin to
think. How could I, in good con-
science, be annoyed by the whole
thing? Clearly those doing the con-
struction had gone out of their way
to announce and warn us as to what
was about to happen.
As I ponder the incident, I can't
help but remember the Scripture.


following 1

Over and over again, God has gone
out of His way to tell us about cer-
tain inconveniences and troubles
that will occur at the end of the age.
From Jesus' Olivet discourse found
in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke
21, to the book of Revelation, the
Bible is full of flashing signs and
public notices.
According to Jesus, just prior to
His return, there will be some major
construction and repair projects '
going on. Though the list of events
and troubles He describes seem
more like destruction rather than
construction, clearly He knows that
sometimes, in order to fix things,
you first have to dig them up. For
me, knowing that helps.
I'm convinced if we will pay atten-
tion to the signs, and drive on the
roads He has made available, certain


the signs

personal stresses and troubles are
avoidable. If we don't pay attention,
and think we can just go about life as
usual, one thing is for sure, when we
hit the road block, it won't be
because someone didn't tell us.
Regardless of where you land on all
that, I'm grateful to God for giving
u a head's up aliout what's going on
in the world. The idea that I don't
have to be late when it comes to
meeting Him face to face is very
good news.
These things I have spoken unto
you, that in me you might have
peace. In the world you shall have
tribulation: but be of good cheer: I
have overcome the world." Uohn

.HOMES


Think twice before watering your garden


DORAN DONOVAN
and REBECCA JORDI
For the News-Leader
Residential water use com-
prises 61 percent of the public
supply category. This public
supply category is responsible
for the largest single portion
(43 percent) of groundwater
withdrawal in Florida.
Between 1970 and 1995
there was a 135 percent
increase in groundwater with-
drawals. The current popula-
tion of 16 million is projected to
exceed 20 million by 2020. The
average residential irrigation
cycle consumes several thou-
sand gallons of water, and the
average homeowner typically
runs two cycles per week.
Water conservation has
become a major concern for
Florida. (Taken from "Home
Irrigation and Landscape
Combinations for Water
Conservation in Florida"
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ae287.)
Each of us has a unique
opportunity to make a dis-
cernable difference in the water
quality and quantity in Florida.
Many of us would be surprised
to know we do not need to
water established lawns and
shrubs as much as we may
think. In fact, most of us prob-
ably use too much water. Some
homeowners use very' little


We. who have sprinklersystems, may tend to
set it to run a certain number oftimes per
week and never think of adjusting it for the
seasonal changes and area-wide restrictions.


water with no adverse effect.
Why does this happen? We,
who have sprinkler systems,
may tend to set it to run a cer-
tain number of times per
week and never think of a
adjusting it for the seasonal
changes and area-wide restric-
tions. Rain shut-off devises,
while required by law since
1991, may not be working cor-
rectly, so they allow watering
even when rainfall would turn
off the system.
This results in wasted water
and wasted money that could
be used for better purposes,
such as a well-deserved night
out on the town.
Just look at your water
meter bill. By watering less,
you may be able to cut your
usage by 50 percent or more.
Over the course of a year, this
could result in savings of hun-
dreds of dollars per year.
Here are some suggestions:
Realize even if it is your
assigned day to irrigate, it does
not mean you must irrigate.
Scheduled watering can waste


time, money and resources.
Don't let the calendar tell you
when to water look to your
plants for telltale signs of water
needs. Water lawns when 50
percent of the lawn shows signs
of wilt; leaf blades folded in half,
turn a blue-gray color and foot-
prints remain on the lawn.
Water established bedding
plants and shrubs when you
see early signs of wilting (the
drooping of plant parts, espe-
cially leaves). Established
lawns and shrubs may do not
need regular watering.
Watering and fertilizer
should be reduced even more
in shaded areas
Over watering can lead to
increased diseases such as fun-
gus and root rot
If you have an automatic
sprinkler system, be sure the
rain shut-off device is working
properly.
Look into other types of
irrigation systems such as
micro-irrigation.
Water early in the morn-
ing (4-7 am.) when dew is nat-


rally forming to avoid disease
issues.
Calibrate your irrigation
system to water between 1/2 to
3/4 inches.
For more information, go
online and print out the
University of Florida publica-
tion: "Fertilization and
Irrigation Needs of Florida
Lawns and Landscapes" at
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/epll0,
or check out A Guide to
Florida-Friendly Landscaping
at http://www.floridayards.
org/landscape/FYN-
Handbook.pdf. See pages 39-
45, Water Efficiently. (The
guide has chapters on many
aspects of landscaping.from
landscape design to fertilizing.)
And visit the Nassau County
Extension office website at
http://nassau.ifas.ufl.edu.
The message is simple: Try
cutting down on your watering.
Your lawn and garden will not
* suffer, in fact, they will probably
do better.Your pocketbook will
be happier. And you will be
helping to save water for not
only now, but also for future
generations.

JAGUAR UPDATE:

Game night!
TIME TO PLAY: The Jaguars host the
Atlanta Falcons tonight in their first home
game of the 2011 preseason. Kickoff is set
for 8 p.m.
LAST GAME: The Jaguars lost their pre-
season opener 47-12 Aug. 11 at New
England. The Jaguars trailed 19-9 at half-
time before the Patriots outscored them 28-
3 in the second half. 2011 first-round draft
pick Blaine Gabbert started at quarterback
for injured David Garrard (back) and played
the entire first half. Gabbert finished 9-of-16
passing for 85 yards and was sacked three
times. Josh Scobee scored nine of the
cub's 12 points on field goals of 41:, 29 and
31 yards. First-year pro Sam Swank con-
nected on a 40-yard field goal in the first
quarter.
COACH SAID: "As we began to take some
of our front line guys out, it got a little ragged
and we're going to coach those guys up,"
Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio said.
"They understand what we're looking for,
the standard we're looking for, and we
weren't really cose to that standard. But
we're not going to lower it. We're looking for
a certain way, a Jaguar way, of approaching
things and playing fast and playing at a high
level and making the plays, making the
plays that are there to be made. We'll go
through making corrections, getting things
cleaned up where we can and continue to
stress the details of what we're looking for
and push on."
NOT IN THE GAME: The Jaguars were
without 12 players against the Patriots,
including seven starters in Garrard, running
back Maurice Jones-Drew, cornerback
Derek Cox, offensive tackle Eben Britton,
defensive end Aaron Kampman, tight end
Marcedes Lewis and defensive tackle
Terrance Knighton.
RADIO/TV: The game will be broadcast
nationally on FOX and locally on WAWS
(cable channel 30). Games are broadcast
on Jaguars Radio Network stations WOKV
AM and FM (690 and 106.5).
NEXT UP: The Jaguars travel to Buffalo
Aug. 27 for a 7 p.m. matchup and return
home to host St. Louis Sept. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
to wrap up the preseason.
KICKOFF: The 2011 regular season opens
Sept. 11 with Jacksonville hosting the
Tennessee Titans. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. The
Jags are on the road for back-to-back
games at New York and Carolina. They host
the Saints Oct. 2.

The Yulee Middle School Athletic Department was awarded the Fred E. Rozelle Sportsmanship Award for 2010-
11 by the Florida High School Athletic Association Aug. 12. YMS was just one of three schools in the state of
Florida to receive the honor. They were nominated for the award during the school year and later judged based on
how the school administrators and faculty, coaches and student athletes, student body, boosters and parents treat
visiting teams and the loyalty they show towards their home team. Michael Franzese, YMS athletic director, center,
accepted the plaque and $500 to use for the athletic department. He is flanked by Assistant Principal Amanda
Cooper and Principal Jeremy Boatright. "Athletics are a vital part of the Yulee Middle School experience,"
Franzese said. "Our athletic department exists to enhance the entire Yulee community by providing an environ-
ment and a means for a student to improve his or her quality of life through athletics."

Tours begin to


island's rarely


seen treasures
T he National Park Service has begun pro-
viding guided, interpretive tours of
Cumberland Island National Seashore.
Ar, Visitors travel via passenger van and open-
air tram to historic locations around the seashore,
including Plum Orchard Mansion, the Settlement
(including the First African Baptist Church),
Cumberland Island Wharf and other sites along the
main road. Tours are offered daily.
"We are excited to start these tours," said Fred
Boyles, superintendent of Cumberland Island
National Seashore. "Many features of the island
that are rarely seen by visitors will be more easily
reached. Our goal is to build a new appreciation
among the public for the natural beauty and rich
historic resources that are Cumberland Island."
Make reservations by calling (912) 882-4335
Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tours
operate rain or shine but may be canceled due to
extreme conditions on the island. Visitors can also
make ferry reservations by calling the ferry reser-
vation office at the same number listed above.
Tours are not offered on Christmas Day,
scheduled hunt days or Tuesdays and Wednesdays
from Dec. 1 through Feb. 28. The tour is $15 per
person, with a reduced fee of $12 for seniors over
the age of 62 and for children under 16. This fee is
in addition to the standard park entrance fee of $4
per person and the ferry fee of $20 for adults, $18
for those over 65 and $14 for children 12 and
under.
Tours leave from the Sea Camp Visitor Center
just after the ferry arrives at 9:45 a.m. and last
approximately six hours. This is a physically
demanding, arduous trip and visitors should plan
accordingly. Visitors will need to bring provisions
such as food and water and may bring one small
personal bag or pack. There are limited restrooms
and water stops and a short break for a picnic
lunch. A handicap accessible van is available for vis-
itors with special needs.
In addition to the Lands and Legacies tour, a
south end drop on/drop off shuttle operates
between the Dungeness Dock and the Sea Camp
area to help visitors traverse the difficult area.
For more information about Cumberland Island
National Seashore or the Lands and Legacies tour,
