while Mr. Page's cows were herded
off the road near Yulee Primary School

These days; Flannery is herding
kindergartners there.
Asked why she chose a career in
education, Flannery said she had con-
sidered becoming a Christian coun-
selor, but realized her lifelong love of
learning could inspire others to learn
'"That was my deciding factor. My
parents taught me the value of an edu-

at park

City commissioners unanimously
approved Tuesday a plan for a
Veterans Memorial Park at the former
site of the American Legion Post 54 at
the northeast corner of Central Park
off Atlantic Avenue.
Resident John Megna, an Air Force
veteran and former member of the
Parks & Recreation Advisory Board,
brought the concept before the board
for approval earlier this year.
S Megn'a told commissioners the
plan was to have a walkable park meas-
ui ing aibol 80'by 100 feet. "It will be
a conden-rid little park, but something
we can be proud of," Mc:': -i.:i 4.1
Pl3,n- I,' i-he looI1k o1' il -p.i i.: have not
b.-i-n fializ,-d, he said.
.'According to a letter from the
\ teranr Nh: Mroorial Park C,-,i',inI .,
the parkwould be financed by the sale
of inscribed bricks, which would each
be a tribute to veterans of all branch-
es of military service.
The committee members also
wrote that they were "willing to finance
and volunteer our time for this project
to accomplish the memorial park."
The plan incorporates the brick
chimney that was left standing after
the log cabin, used by American
Legion Post 54 for many years, was
demolished last year. The Post erect-
ed a new building at 626 S. Third St.
Megna wrote in a memo that,
besides the inscribed bricks and chim-
ney, the park may have benches, flag-
poles, walkways, flowers and tables
with seating, which would be paid for
by the bricks and fundraisers. "The
design of the park dedicated to the
veterans would be done with good
State and respect," Megna wrote.
Megna also noted the new park
would in no way replace the Nassau
County Veterans Memorial at the west
end of Centre Street near the city mari-

The memorial will incorporate
the brick chimney left standing
after a log cabin, used by
American Legion Post 54 for
years, was demolished.

"As a commission, do we
want to say we don't care
about a great archeological
find?" Poynter asked. "It
seems to make sense to have
something in place."
"I'm talking about proper-
ty rights on the waterfront,"
Childers said. "There's no
telling what they might find,
even in the (upcoming) dredg-
ing project."
"You would hope we
just get rid of it, if you find
something historic?" Poynter
"It might not be historic,
but just perceived as historic,"
Childers said. "I just don't see
the benefit."
Old Town resident Ron
Machado agreed with
Childers, saying, "Who's
going to want to buy a.prop-
erty that has to be surveyed
by mandate? It's an undue bur-
den placed on property own-
Childers also said he was
not in favor of amendments to
the city's comprehensive plan
based on an Evaluation and
Appraisal Report. Florida
statutes require cities to.
amend their comprehensive
plans based on recommenda-
tions in the report, which is
the result of two years of pub-
lic input, community work-
shops and staff presentations.
The Planning Advisory Board,
also had five public hearings
to consider the plan amend-
"I'm not in support of send-.
ing a document to the state
when it is so detailed,".
Childers said. He noted such
unnecessary details could
include the number of park-
ing spaces allowed for restau-.
Community Development

Director Marshall McCrary
said one purpose of the
EAR amendments to the com-
prehensive plan was to rec-
ognize unique areas of
the city, rather than having a
"cookie cutter" approach
for all areas. "The compre-
hensive plan recognizes the
difference in properties," he
McCrary also explained
that the state has relaxed
some of its rules and that it
has given the city "a broader
right to do what we want."
But, he said, the city is still
required by statute to have a
comprehensive plan, which is
the basis for the Land
Development Code.
"It goes to the state, but it
is our document," McCrary
said. "It's our framework for
how this community envisions
future development."
McCrary also noted the
Evaluation and Appraisal
Report was the result of two
years' work.
But Childers persisted in
his objections, saying the city
should not have to ask the
state to make changes. "We've
got too much governmental
intrusion in everything," he
argued. "Let's send them the
least amount (of informa-
tion)." Childers said he also
feared the complicated docu-
nment would restrict future
commissioners from doing
what they wanted to do.
"Every single element of this
(document) has gotten big-
ger," he said. "We have to
draw the line somewhere and
stop it."'
"I believe in less govern-
ment and this is where we
should start, at the comp
plan," Childers said. "I think
we have the opportunity.and I
think it's incumbent on us to
do it."

No other city neighborhoods

qualify as historic districts

The Florida Division of
Historical Resources has
approved the reconnaissance-
level architectural survey com-
ileted for the city by Janus
Research. Janus, based in
Tampa, was awarded the con-
tract to conduct the survey in
September 2010.
The primary finding of the
survey indicates that there are
not any other neighborhoods
in the city that would likely
qualify as a historic district..
The survey also recommends,
areas that may benefit from
conservation districting, which
is a form of zoning overlay that
seeks to protect elements of
neighborhood character,; but
is not as stringentas a historic
district overlay.
The survey recommends
more detailed survey work
along the beaches, primarily
to document older structures
that are being replaced with
larger, new homes.
The state awarded the city
a $30,000 grant in July 2010 to
complete this survey for the
city, excluding the downtown
and Old Town historic dis-
tricts, which have been previ-
ously surveyed.
The purpose of the survey
was to identify development

patterns, history of neighbor-
hoods and architectural and
landscape elements of neigh-
borhoods that create a neigh-
borhood's particular charac-

Find out how you may be able to

Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly Without
Probate Fees & Minimum Estate Taxes

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 with a 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.

Buying a 2011 version

versus a 2012 model

This is the time of year
where new car shoppers will
begin to have a choice of year
models. Most cars on the
ground are 2011's and ship-
ments of 2012's are beginning
to' arrive. The decision to buy
at model clearance time can
be better some years than oth-
ers. And, certainly, a lot has to
do with the model and manu-
facturer incentives.
This year inventories will
be a little thinner than normal,
which goes along with manu-

much the last few years. The
lingering effect of the Japanese
tsunami disruptions plays a big
role for Honda and Toyota
prospects. We'll take a look at
generalities about any year and
then specifics about this year.
S The biggest point I can
make is that for the majority of
buyers, it doesn't make a lot of
difference which year you
pick. Finding the best car for
your criteria outweighs what
year the serial number is. In
that ownership cycles are
lengthening and that the aver-
age car on the road is over nine
years old, those keeping a car
five years plus will take resale
almost out of the equation.
Today, the five-plus-year own-
ers of a new car are going to be
the majority.
Another big factor is when
the new model is partially or
totally redesigned and engi-
neered. Tons of new product is

Amelia Arts Academy. Ul Oi c\schooer

Amelia Arts Academy, school

ir i hce News Leader

My memories of elementary
school include vocal music
classes, band, visual arts, dance
as part of the physical educa-
tion curriculum and drama.
Unfortunately, today's children
do not have the opportunities
we had because it is a different
world and funding for the arts
is severely limited. Our school
board is doing the best they
can with the resources avail-
able and so it is time for the
community to step forward.
We at Amelia Arts Academy
are concerned and believe that
our children in Nassau County
should have access to quality
arts education on a regular
basis. 'hat is why we have put

together a program that will
serve as a pilot for arts alter
school. ()ur board of diiirecors
recently approved a plan to pro-
vide an after-school arts pro-
gram to local children at no cost
to the students or to the spon-
soring locations.
We have developed part-
nerships with three local organ-
izations to make this initiative a
reality. The first step was attend-
ing a meeting. of the school
board and obtaining permis-
sion to explore the possibilities.
I met with l)r. John Ruis,
Superintendent of Schools, wlho
was extremely helpful in devej-
oping a workable program that
would be beneficial to all parties
involved. The partners are the

We believe that our children in Nassau
County should have access to quality arts
education on a regular basis.

Elementary School, the YMCA
"Pryme Time" program in

Club of Fernandina Beach.
Dr. Eric I.arsen, principal of
Emma Iove, commented, "We
are happy to partner with the
Amelia Arts Academy to pro-
vide an after-school band pro-
gram. This is a great opportu-
nity for kids to develop an
interest in music and continue
a program that was in place in
thle recent past." The elemen-
tary band will meet on Tuesday

and ThIursday afternoons start-
ing on Oct. 6. Diane

director of the program.
The YMCA and the school
district are in partnership with

Life on the retirement plan

years service with the telephone
company, he was about my age.
He didn't have any hobbies or reg-
ular activities that he engaged in or a network
of friends he hung around with. All the man
had ever done was work and I think retirement
baffled him. He didn't know what to do with all
that surplus time on his hands and so he did
the worst thing possible, nothing. The old man
pretty much became just another house fix-
ture, something Mama had to move out of the
way when she vacuumed and dusted. He
watched television and went to church and that
was about it. He got old very quickly, too, both
in mind and in body.
Like father like son? Not on your life.
I hinted at this in an earlier column so now
I'll out myself. Sometime after the first of the
New Year, yours truly will retire from his real
job, as in the one that has brought me a pay-
check for about the last 20 years. That's right.
I'm bailing out, pulling the pin. I'm flying the
coop. Why? Because it's time, that's why.
So, how do you know when it's time to
retire? Believe me, when your time comes,
you'll know. It's hard to define, sort of like try-"
ing to describe grits to someone who's never
eaten them. Well, my time has come and I am
eagerly anticipating the next phase of my life.
Scared? Not on your life, bubba.
Up until now, I've shared this with family, a

.-'S. coworkers. Now a whole
bunch of people know. The
S typical response I get is, "But
; ^you're only 57. That's so
young." Well, yes, thank you
Very much. And it just so hap-
pens that I don't want to wait
till I'm "so old" to sally forth
into my retirement years. It's
CUP OF no secret that I've had some
JOE health issues. I don't know
how many good years I have
left in me none of us do,
Joe Palmer really and I don't want to
spend that time driving 70
miles roundtrip a day, five days a week. I've
bigger fish to fry, literally and figuratively.
But surely you'll want to do some kind of
work, is the next thing some people say upon
learning of my plan. Well, I don't know. From
where I sit right now, my retirement agenda
looks pretty full. I've got an old sailboat that
needs a lot of fixing up, painting and polishing
in order to look the way I want her to look. I
have a major yard project I've been putting off
for years because I can't stomach the thought
of being a slave to my yard on my days off
from my job. Now that will get done, which, in,
addition to making my yard look nicer, will
make my wife a very happy person because
she won't have to continue to nag me to get it

Thanks to the magic of Facebook, I've
reconnected with a bunch of old friends spread
out all over the place that I plan to make short
trips to visit, if only for the day. And fishing.
Did I mention fishing? A man told me once he
got bored fishing so much. I told him if he got
bored, he was either fishing in the wrong place
or doing ,i,,i..I i,;,, wrong. No, on my worst
day, I wouldn't find fishing boring.
And I have grandkids to enjoy. Granted,
they're a little young to be hanging out on the
boat with Papa all day but. I can see more of
them now.
And then there's my passion, my writing. I
have a head full of ideas and projects I'm dying
to put on paper. 1 want to travel to little towns
all over this part of the country and write about
life in the heartland kind of like Charles
Kuralt did on the CBS Evening News for so
many years.
I want to wake up in the morning and smell
the coffee brewing and know that I don't have
to leave home as soon as I have a cup, or take it
with me on the road. I don't want to have to hit
the snooze alarm ever again.
You see, life does not have to end at retire-
ment. If we're willing and able, it can be, it
should be, the beginning of the rest of our
I wish someone had told my father that.


differentt world'
As someone not prone to writing
letters to the editor, with what is hap-
pening with our city commission late-
ly, I feel the need to comment.
The public seems to live in a dif-
lfrent world than government. We in
the public sector have to live within our
means. If we want something and don't
have the money to pay for it, we either
don't buy it or we buy it on credit
(based on our ability to pay) and pay
it back accordingly.
Not so with the city commission.
They have compiled a wish list (not
one of which is an emergency); plan to
borrow the money (almost $6 million)
and use the city residents as the means
by which to pay it'back. At the absolute
least, they could have let'the same
residents vote on this issue on the
November ballot. It would cost very lit-
tle to add this issue to the ballot.
Apparently the commission has
chosen to ignore our expressing our
views at the ballot. The commission
thinks they know' best how to spend
our money. Incidentally, we're not talk-
ing about buying a fire tryck; we're
talking about $5.7 million. Remember
the in ,. c.., That was $.6 iLliiI
and **. r I ..r .i .on it! i,., .,,.,,
There is a simple, sensible
approach to this and other non-emer-
gency issues that require spending,
or especially borrowing money dur-
ing these troubling economic times -
"You Just Don't Do it!" or you establish
, ,n, 1,11 1. i i that doesn't pay it back
on the backs of local residents.
I wonder if our commissioners
manage their finances the same way
they manage ours?
Beano Roberts
Former city commissioner
Fernandina Beach

Slap in the face'
I have stayed quiet for some time
on the many issues floating around
our fair city. Many other citizens are
now up in arms over topics that
brought my blood to a near boil. But,
reading your Sept. 2 edition my eye

was caught by what I believed had to
be a sensationalistic, yellow journalism
headline "Childers: Raise, don't
lower, pay." It forced the expenditure .
of 75 of my hard-earned cents to read
what the headline supposedly
explained. I was shocked to read that
it was actually true. Then I had to go
back and check the e-mails I usually
ignore and it was there.
Ms. (Angela) Daughtry was accu-
Srate! But after re-reading her article I
did find -a glaring error. Mr.
(Commissioner Eric) Childers and
Ms. (Mayor Susan) Steger are not
ending their terms in November.
November instead is the end of their
unelected seven-month extension to
the term that officially ended in April.
Seven months that each of them chose
to serve, actually voted themselves
into, at such a substandard rate.
Childers' position that more money
is needed is a slap in the face of all the
good, honest, hardworking volunteers
who serve on the other boards and
committees of the city government.
They do it in the true "pro bono pub-
lico," or "for the public good," that
representative government is sup-
posed to be about. Shame on him and,
.thefour othe r c.riilrnimii.i ,,l who did
no have re e intesl.inal !t,rtitude to
stand up and chastise hin fii.r such a
However, in all fairness, I have to
take Mr. Childers' side on one point
that he artfully makes. We do need
diverse representation on our city com-
mission! Their recent actions being
indicative that the shallow end of the
gene pool is more than adequately
represented maybe the two of them
will do the right thing and allow others
with more sense, community aware-
ness and an interest in doing the pub-
lic work in the right way for the right
reason serve the next three years.

Backwards' Femandina
I have been keeping up with
"Forward Fernandina" and like many
little towns across this country the


leaders lack vision and passion to real-
ly move Fernandina Forward. To get
right to the point the decision to bor-
row to restore the post office is unbe-
lievable! First of all to all you "preser-
vationists to the bone" your relentless
pursuit to preserve is a personal con-
viction, a personal value. I am riot pro-
moting no preservation, but those who
disagree with you are not wrong.
One business owner downtown
was told the signage he wanted to do
to his business was "immoral" how
ridiculous! Whenever the old becomes
financially burdensome it is time for a
change. Whenever the old prevents
the new from coming it's time for a
change. This mind set has prevented
many a town from moving forward
just to appease a few so-called preser-

vationists. It has hindered revenue
that is desperately needed.
It is time for the post office to come
down and a new plan drawn up for
that property. I can assure you that if
everyone wakes up and the post office
is gone it will not hinder Fernandina
From moving forward. What about put-
ting money into the less than mediocre
Main Beach? The Main Beach is shab-
by at best The city needs to purchase
ground that is for sale. Put in a first-
class.playground with a mini-water
park. Basketball courts and the skate-
board park need to be renovated. The
boardwalk needs to be extended. Build
more covered areas with grills and
more restrooms with showers. A per-
manent amphitheatre needs to be built
with year-round events.

All properties at Main Beach
should be kept updated and fresh look-
ing. A new landscape design is need-
ed. More business should be encour-
aged to open, property made available
for this to happen. The drive to the
beach should be an experience with
fresh painted stripping, clean curbs,
sidewalks and maintained landscape.
In closing I want to say that only
local, state and federal government
can make the wasteful and unfruitful
decisions that are made. No one would
run their personal or business finances
the way our elected officials do. They
are able to keep doing this because of
the complacency and passiveness of
the people.

We must never forget September 11

the value of freedom while
attending a military retire-
ment ceremony in
Washington D.C. Driving down the
hill after the ceremony, my soul was
stirred as my eyes caught a glimpse
of the late-summer sun reflecting
across the sea of white-washed
stones at the adjacent Arlington
National Cemetery and wondered
what it is that defines a person who
is willing to give his or her life in
exchange for freedom.
As I wrote in an article, "Obama
'-i l.i.;L: on Bush's Shoulders," writ-
ten just after ()sama bin Laden's
death, it seems like only yesterday
when the eyes of the world were
fixed on television screens filled with
i. i 1 scenes of fellow Americans
forced to make the decision as to
how they would die that dreadful
Sept. 11, 2001 morning. Some chose
1 ,il. .linl i:, skyscraper-to-sidewalk
jumps, while others chose to be
charred-alive in a steel-melting infer-
no. On airplanes, some decided to sit
in their seats and silently pray, while
ot hers shouted "I.Dt's roll," and took
mnati ers into their own hands.
As the stench and smoke from
human infirmaries colored the skies
gray, a cloud of grief descended over
the country and America's enemy
celebrated. Pictures of Old Glory
intermingled with homemade signs
displaying the words "Never Forget"
sprang Ip on street corners and
front yards throughout America.
And, for a brief moment, it appeared
lihat the patriotism of yesteryear was
awakened from its long slumber as
Americans chose to crossracial,

political and religious barriers to
join hands and hearts to celebrate
Sour commonality. The nasty partisan
divide resulting from the 2000 presi-
dential election seemed to be tem-
porarily patched with the bandage of
brotherhood, as our nation swal-
lowed a bitter pill of truth: We were
at war with Islamic extremists seek-
ing to destroy our freedoms. These
extremists strategically attacked
when we were distracted and weak
from political divisiveness.
Time seemed to stop for most
Americans who found themselves
caught up in grief. Nevertheless, the
sun continued to rise and fall, and
the seasons changed. We bandaged
our wounds the best we could, and
were forced to move forward,
although it seemed inappropriate.
Ten years removed, and amidst wars
on three fronts, war-weary
Americans have fallen into a regi-
men of "normalcy" and have adapted
to a necessary post-9/11 mentality.
Great strides have been taken to
weaken our self-avowed enemy, but
we are still at risk. Only months into
President Obama's presidency,
Americans grew to understand that
having an American president with
Muslim heritage makes little differ-
ence to a terrorist. Attacks and
attempts continue; just last week,
the Department of Homeland
Security and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation issued a five-page bul-
letin warning of potential homeland
al Qaeda attacks via small aircraft.
Nor does a president possessing
a Middle-Eastern name improve
America's standing in the Middle
East. AJuly 13, poll conducted in six

/ I~F A

Middle Eastern countries by Arab
American Institute found Obama's
approval rating never got above 10
percent. Ninety-nine percent of
Lebanese, 90 percent of Egyptians,
88 percent of Moroccans and 77 per-
cent of Saudis believe Obama did
not meet his 2009 Cairo speech
expectations. The survey found
Obama's approval ratings lower than
George W. Bush's second term and

lower than Iranian President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's, with the
exception of Saudi Arabia.
Be it war-weariness, human
nature, the divisiveness of the cur-
rent administration or a little of
each, patriotism has paled, and our
unity diminished. This writer includ-
ed, many have forgotten who the
real enemy is, and have forgotten to
remember those who willingly

pledged our freedom with their
blood. We are eternally indebted to
those who satisfied the yearning for
freedom within their souls by run-
ning headlong into the face of death,
realizing they would never fully taste
the freedom for which they were
(lying. And most certainly, in that
moment of self-denial, their souls
inhaled freedom in its purest form.
May we never forget.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9.2011/News-Leader


Vision, perseverance and receiving strength from the Lord

Last week I told the story of my
difficult bike ride at the beach. The
surprise I faced when I finally figured
out how far I had gone, and that
heading back I would be heading into
a stiff wind, is an experience I won't
soon forget. Though since I began
writing these articles I've never used
one article to set the stage for the
next, this week, that's what I've
decided to do. If you didn't read last
week's story, no worries, I'll do my
best to make this article stand alone
just for you.
Call it what you will, my long chal-
lenging bike ride on the beach car-
ried with it many important lessons. I
literally had to squint my eyes and
use my imagination just to see my car
off in the distance. When I finally

S started calculating
how much strength
it was going to take
to get back to my
car without stop-
p. ing, things didn't
add up. If it hadn't
been for a sense
that God was chal-
lenging me to try,
PUPIT ~I'm sure I would
NOTES have never attempt-
ed it.
With each diffi-
Pastor cult push of the
Rob Goyette pedal, and drain on
my already tired
legs, something interesting began to
happen. Though my physical
strength waned, as I persevered my

ability to see my car increased. As it,
did, somehow new strength came
into my body It was as if the closer I
got, the more I saw a sense of "you
can do it" come over me.
What started out as a discourag-
ing calculation of how much strength
it would take to pedal all the way
back nonstop to my car, ended up
becoming a lsson in the power of
vision and perseverance. The ever
increasing ability to see my goal
brought with it strength that I had
not anticipated. I suppose that's why
the Bible says, "Where there is no
vision the people perish" (Proverbs
29:18a), conversely we could say,
where there is vision people thrive.
In my experience, both on the
beach and in life, the principle is a

solid one. As I'm faithful to keep ped-
aling on the path God has placed me
on, my vision becomes clearer. As it
does, the strength necessary to finish
the task at hand comes with it. From
burning thighs and wanting to quit,
to hearing that still small voice on the
inside saying, "You've come this far,
you can make it," the exchange from
natural strength to the power of a
God given vision was amazing.
Though it's true, when I finally did
make it to my car, my legs felt like
those of the scarecrow in the Wizard
of Oz, the satisfaction of making it all
the way to the end was worth it.
When I translate my beach ride
over into-my daily life, the similarities
are profound. Throughout the years,
on more than one occasion, I've want-

ed to quit and"look for something eas-
ier to do. Inevitably, when I finally
have looked up past my immediate
circumstances to see how far I've
come, and to see that what I've been
striving for is closer than it's ever
been before, to check out premature-
ly seems ridiculous.
In the end, the message of this
particular article is a simple one.
Keep pedaling. If the path you are on
is God's, the strength you need to fin-
ish will show up as you keep moving
"And let us not be weary in well
doing: for in due season we shall
reap, if we faint not." (Galatians 6:9)

More than 400 compete in 10th annual Turtle Trot

For the News-Leader

Ocean breezes and a beautiful Amelia
Island sunrise greeted hundreds of runners
Saturday as the 10th annual Turtle Trot race
moved to a new beach venue.
More than 400 runners and walkers com-
pleted the 3.1-mile course, which ran south
from Main Beach and back at low tide. In a
nod to North Florida beach runs of the past,
finishers received green, turtle-themed coffee
mugs and age-group winners were awarded
Turtle Trot beach towels.
It was just the third beach race for men's
overall winner Mitchell Driver of Hilliard and
a much happier experience than his first one,
a year ago. Unaccustomed to running on sand,
the former Texas state champion runner start-
ed too fast in last year's Summer Beach Run in
Jacksonville Beach, suffered knee swelling
and had to take off four months.
This time, Driver, 23, sped across the finish
line in a winning time of 17:36. He fought off a
challenge from 27-year-old Greg Smith of
Fitchburg, Wis., who led much of the way but
finished 13 seconds behind.
"He pushed me," Driver said. "If he wasn't
there I probably would have run a lot slower."
Driver now has a winning streak in races
organized by the Amelia Island Runners club
- he also placed first in the Pirates on the
Run 10K this past February and the Reindeer
Run 10K last December. He said he's looking
forward to the club's next event, the new
Reindeer Run half-marathon and 5K set for
Dec. 3.
"I really love half-marathons. I cannot wait
to see what I can do on that course," he said.
"That is going to be a fun race. That's what I'm
trying to get in shape for right now."
The Turtle Trot was also a happy experi-
ence for women's winner Sorcha French, 36,
of Fernandina Beach, who finished in 21:01. It
was her first overall win ever.
"I'm definitely not a big fan of beach run-
ning, but I decided, I live here so I'd better get
out there and do it and I'm glad I did," she
French said she had hoped to be among
the top three finishers but, after turning
around at the 1.5-mile mark, "I didn't see any
women for a while, and I thought, 'Ohmigosh
- don't slow down.' I"very time: I heard some-
body coming up behind me I thought, 'It's

another girl,' but it wasn't."
She said she has been taking part in train-
ing runs at the Fernandina Beach High School
track. The free group runs sponsored by
Amelia Island Runners are held Wednesdays
from 6-7 p.m. and the public is invited.
"I tell everybody who runs at all levels to
come out on Wednesday nights," French said.
Leading the men's masters division, run-
ners age 40 and older, was Brian McGuire, 40,
in 19:53.
"I think changing it to the beach was a
great idea," said McGuire, a former
Fernandina Beach resident who now lives in
Clayton, Mo. "It just seems more like a 'desti-
nation' run. It's a 5K, it's summertime, it's
Amelia Island, it ought to be on the beach."


lie said it also presented a mental chal-
lenge because, once he passed the turnaround
point, he could see the finish-line set up in the
"It was a challenge not to keep looking at it
and hoping that'it would get cokser faster. You
had to look down, count to 60, look up again
and s e if you're any closer," McGuire said.
It was the first beach race ever for the
women's masters winner, Marlo Toxey, 42, of
Orlando. She said she had been concerned
about running on the sand but the beach at
low tide was wide and the sand was hard-
packed. She finished in 23:31.
"The competition was great, and seeing the
sun rise before the event was phenomenal,"
she said. "The energy that went into it, the

St. Marys

Ferandina actor
plays Don Quixote

St. Marys, GA- Tickets for St.
Marks Little Theatre's premiere pro-
duction, "Man of th Mancha," are
going fast as area residents get into
the spirit of one of the nation's most
endearing musicals. According to
Barbara Ryan, St.
Marys Little Theatre
chair and produc-.
er/director of the
play, two of the
showings are
already sold out.
Bill Raser of
Fernandina Beach
stars in the lead role
Raser of Don Quixote.
"We offered
SFernandina resi-
dents a special ferry and dinner pack-
age that has proven to be very popu-
lar," said Ryan. "Eighty Floridians will
be coming over to St. Marys to dine
and shop before the Sept. 17 perform-
ance,.and the remaining 40 seats for
that evening were snapped up the
first day of ticket sales."
Ryan said that the Sunday (Sept.
18) afternoon matinee has also
proven popular and was virtually sold
out at press time.
"Man of La Mancha" will be per-
formed at the Theatre by the Trax,
which is the old St. Marys railroad
building that (saved from demolition)
has been transformed into a'commu-
nity theater.
Diana Ewen, stage manager for
the production, said that the play is
an ambitious undertaking but one
that is sure to resonate with people of
all ages.
"'Man of La Mancha' is inspiring.
It'sfunny. And the music is spectacu-
lar," Ewen said, "which is one of the
reasons that the show earned the cov-
eted 'Best Musical' Tony award on
"I believe people will be stunned
by the amazing voices that comprise
the cast of La Mancha," Ewen contin-
ued. "The show is an extraordinary
combination of drama, fantasy,
romance, and fun."
Special dinners created in tribute
to Man of La Mancha and its setting
in Spain are being offered by local
restaurants during the two weeks of
the show. In keeping with the spirit of
the show, citizens are asked to report
incidences of kindness, valor or nobil-
ity to the local press.
Man of La Mancha Performances

Meals on Wheels for Pets makes
it easier for seniors who receive
Meals on Wheels to feed their pets.
Animal companions receive high
quality food to assure proper nutri-
tion and good health.
The local Meals on Wheels For
Pets made its first deliveries in
August 2009. After an initial test run
in Fernandina Beach, the program
was expanded to include seniors on
the West Side of the county. The
number of pets served fluctuates as
clients join or leave the program, are
hospitalized, etc.
Many animals and senior citizens
have a lot in common, program
organizer Deborah Watford has
noted. "They share the same strug-
.gles: day-to-dayN.survival. adcIquale
shelter. nourish;ng if-,id aml piroper
health care. Many are alone and
lonely,,lacking the human interaction
that makes life worth living. They
generally have no voice and in that
quiet, are too often forgotten. I hope
that this program will help to
address some of those issues."
To qualify for Meals on Wheels,
individuals must be at least 60 years
old. A case manager at the Council
on Aging assesses their situation and
determines which program meets
their needs.
Donations of cat or dog food or
dollars to support the Meals on
Wheels for Pets program are greatly
appreciated/Call the COA at 261-
