Record revenues at port


GARRETT PELICAN

While other businesses take a
thrashing against the proverbial
rocks, the Port of Fernandina is thriv-

after posting record numbers for ton-

new employees.

"When you're in a niche market
you can buck trends," Schwec said.
The facility handled almost 629,000
tons in 2010, compared to roughly
507,000 in 2009 and less than 450,000

raises



fees

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City commissioners unanimously
approved increases of various city fees
Tuesday, with most increases affecting
Parks & Recreation Department users.
The fee increases that will directly
affect most residents, however; are
water/wastewater fees.
Other approved fee increases were
at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club,
Fernandina Harbor Marina,
Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport
and the Community Development
Department The fire department had
no fee increases and the city clerk's
office had only one fee increase.
A handful of fees were decreased.
'According to a city summary, all
departments within the city were
required to evaluate their fees as part
of the development of the 2011-12 city
budget. Those fees are "based on the
cost to provide (city) services and facil-
ity rentals," according to the summary.
Water and wastewater rates had
nominal increases of a few cents up to
several dollars, but all city residents
will be affected by those increases.
Final water bills are determined by the
amount of water used.
Among other. changes, the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club now
charges the same greens fees for city
residents .,., and non-residents.

FPU


to keep


walk-in


service
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Florida Public Utilities has dropped
a plan to discontinue walk in services
at its office on South Eighth Street.
Mark Cutshaw, northeast division gen-
eral manager of FPU, said Thursday
the company was responding to com-
plaints by the public and city commis-
sioners.
At Tuesday's city commission meet-
- ing, Commissioner Eric Childers and
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter expressed
concerns about the elimination of walk-
in services.
FPU, the city's electricity provider,
sent out'a notice along with its last
electric bill saying that, starting Nov. 1,
it would no longer provide walk-in or
bill drop-off services at its local office
on South Eighth Street
Childers, who brought the issue up
for discussion, said elimination of walk-
in services was a breach of FPU's fran-
chise agreement with the city, which
states "services and functions ... shall
be maintained during the term of this
agreement."
"I don't think they're honoring (the
franchise agreement) in good faith',"
Childers said. He noted he was also
concerned that some people could be
without electricity for 48 hours if they
were unable to pay a bill before a week-
end.
"People are in financial straits,"
Childers said. "Customer service to '
me is one of the areas that's suffered
the most... we have the mechanism in
place to make FPU accountable.
Regardless of the percentage (of walk-
in customers) we need to hold them to
their word."
Cutshaw told commissioners that

events. 'Parks & Recreation
Director Nan Voit told him the
city manager had the ability to
waive those fees.
While most fee increases
were nominal, some were sig-
nificant. In the building depart-
ment, the city is now charging
fees for letters of code deter-
mination ($50), reissued cer-
tificates of occupancy ($25)
and extended downtown pub-
lic parking permits ($15/day
or $75/week).
Plan revisions increased
from $35 to $50, and plan pre-
reviews increased from $50 to
$150. Gas code base fees
increased from $50 to $100 and
installation of gas tank permits
from $35 to $75. A solar water
heating system permit
increased from $6 to $50.
However, a permit for a
movable module storage unit,
or POD, decreased from $100
to $25, and a non-refundable
deposit for estimated con-
struction under $20,000, which
was $150, was eliminated.
Mayor Susan Steger did not
comment on the fees that were
increased, but said she
believed resort rental dwelling
permits were too high at $300.
Community Development
Director Marshall McCrary
told Steger those fees were
increased last year and that
"there is a distinct benefit with
having that permit"
"I don't think it's too high,"
said Commissioner Jeffrey
Bunch. "There are people
making $1,000 in a weekend
(with resort rentals)," he said.
"Three hundred dollars is
nothing coinpared to making
thousands of dollars."
Steger added she did not
want resort rental fees to "be a
deterrent" for potential renters.
"People who are going to
abide by the rules ... are going
to be responsible to do it,"
Poynter said, regarding resort
rentals. "I don't think we need
to lower the fees on these
things. The police and fire
departments are starting to
enforce these things a lot more
than they have in the past."

Commissioner Eric
Childers said that, although
there didn't seem to be signif-
icant increases in the building
department, those increases
can add up. The city, he added,
should rather be encouraging
construction.
"Can we survive without
(these increases)?" he asked.
McCrary said the biggest
increases were "limited to
trade elements" and that a
$155,000 house would see an
increase of only $5.50 in per-
mitting fees.
"It's a nominal increase on
new construction," McCrary
said. Trade permitting increas-
es of a few dollars, he said,
would "reflect actual time
spent by staff."
"It looked to me like the
builditigdepartmentwas oper-
ating in the red," Childers said.
"This would help offset those
numbers."

City OKs budget with tax increase


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader

After months of discussion
and development, city com-
missioners gave unanimous
final approval Wednesday to the
city's 2011-12 budget, which
raises property taxes.
The budget features a com-
bined mill rate of 5.4335. The
mill rate includes voter-
approved debt of 0.2576 and a
0.03 mill increase over the max-

13-16 percent of customers walk
in to the local office to pay their
bills, and that up to 26 percent
use the drop-off box.
He also said the Yranchise
was not compromised because
there is a plan in the works for
customers to drop their bills off
at Walmart or possibly city
offices.
"They can pay at one loca-
tion and accomplish the same -
thing," Cutshaw said. "It's the
same service whether it's an
employee or a contractor." He
also said customers can pay for
free in any number of ways,
including electronically through
their own. bank. He added that
75 percent of customers mail
their payment directly to the
corporate office in Marianna.
"To me, the mail is very
secure," Cutshaw said. "We
have a very low record.of mis-
payments (through the mail)...
so there's a lot of, different
options for customers."
Poynter told Cutshaw he
understood FPU was a private
company with its own priorities,
but that it was eliminating a
valuable service, especially for
residents of less means.
"My feeling is that's the serv-
ice you should continue to sup-
ply," Poynter said. "It's a func-
tion you signed up for when you
signed your agreement."
Otherwise, Poynter said, the
company should find another
method just as convenient for
citizens.
"We feel like citizens are not
being harmed, but I understand
your point," Cutshaw said. He
noted the company would be
keeping the same employees
and that customers could get
problems resolved by talking
to them on, the ph6ne '"We'
understand some customers
will need (personal service) at
times," he said. "For 99 percent

may be able to pay their elec-
trical bill through city of fices.
City Utilities Director John
Mandrick, a former FPU
employee, said when the city
took over water services in
2003, customers came into the
office because they had special
payment arrangements or com-
plaints they wanted to air.
'That's time the city would have
to spend," he said, if FPU uses
city offices for payments.
"When I pay my bill every
month, I go to (the office on)
Eighth Street," Maildrick said.
"If I have a question, I get it
answered right (here.... There
are additional choices (for pay-
ments) but something is being
taken away."
"We're not trying to impede
customers on the island,"
Cutshaw said. "We feel we are
providing that service, that
we're not violating the fran-
chise."
"I see the reasons why
(FPU} would want to impose
this on us, but I'm not con-
vinced," Childers said.

PORT Continued from 1A
instead of being stored in con-
tainers.
"It's probably 70 percent
break-bulk right now and 30 per-
cent containers," Schwec said.
"Ideally, we want to be more like
60-40."
Comprising 98.4 percent of
break-bulk cargo handled by the
facility, break-bulk exports form
the backbone of the port's busi-
ness.
Due to the dipping value of
the U.S. dollar, Schwec said, the
port has fostered a strong busi-
ness in the exportation of these
goods- particularly linerboards
and steel goods. "Being in the
export side of the business real-
ly helps," he added.
The port experienced a
surge in steel exports in recent
years, tripling from 80,000 tons
in 2008 to more than 240,000 in
2009. And while 2010 has not
yielded such startling growth,
figures show an uptick nonethe-
less of 4,000 tons in steel export-
ed from the 2009 figures.
Providing export services to
several steel mills in the
Southeast, Schwec said
Fernandina was No. 1 national-
ly for the export of steel in the
month of May and No. 2 in.the
month of June. The figures for
September, he said, show prom-
ise as well.
As most businesses face the
task of slashing payroll, the port
is adding personnel.
"In the last year we've
increased our worldorce by ,10
percent, which percent-wise
sounds very good," he said. "But
1people-wise, it's about 10 peo-,
ple."
To accommodate future
growth, the port is pursuing a
$10 million expansion of its


pier to handle
more cargo.
Schwec said
S -" the expansion
would benefit
existing cus-
tomers and
6- attract new
Schwec customers as
well. It would
be financed
with a grant he applied for but
will not be awarded until 2012.
"We have. already experi-
enced the growth to justify that
expansion," he said.
To that end, Schwec stressed
the importance of intermodal
connectivity, or cooperation
between operations waterside
and landside. Currently, the port
derives its rail service from a
combination of First Coast Rail
Road a division of Genesee
and Wyoming and CSX
Railroad.
Citing a Florida Trade and
Logistics study sponsored by
the Florida Chamber Founda-
tion and the Florida Department
of Transportation, he said the
study suggested adopting and
preserving land use that sup-
ports freight distribution.
Future growth, Schwec said,
will arrive via railroad. Pointing
to the example of a boat loaded
with 20,000 tons of steel billets
that came to the port by rail, he.
said the same load would have
required 1,000 trucks to trans-
port, not to mention additional
time.
Schwec attributed the port's
.Success to its small size. Liken-
ing the attraction of new busi-
ness to fishing, he said every
customer at Fernandina's facili-
ty is a big fish in a small pond.
"It is a service-oriented facil-
ity," he said. '"That doesn't mean
that we don't stumble occasion-
ally we all make mistakes
sometimes but we use a hands-
on approach ... customers rec-
ognize efficiency and produc-
tivity"
Even with a potential expan-
sion on the horizon, Schwec said
the port wvll remain a relatively
small one'and provide service
* *. m think lhat'- lla'. we dif-
ferentiate ourselves from the
large ports is the service-ori-
ented culture," he said.

10 car experiences for you


We are all attached to our vehicles to
some degree. It is a possession that is
usually all ours, since most people don't
share a car. Dependence on our car is a
fact of life for 90-plus percent of the driv-
ing age people in America. The only
other form of reliance most succumb to,
voluntarily, is a cell phone. That is
another story altogether. So, instead
of a ho-hum existence with our trans-
portation, spice things up a little. Here
are the first 10 things that come to. me as
ideas:'
1) On a nice early fall day, ride with
the windows down. Few own convert-
ibles or motorcycles where the breeze is
a given. Get crazy, and ride the interstate
awhile with the windows down. They did
it routinely 50-plus years ago. Think of
the old movies with the women wearing
scarves to keep the hair pinned down.
Go retro and roll down your windows.
2) Go on a picnic. Take advantage of
our natural surroundings and go to a
park or find your own spot: Try and
make the menu yourself or pick up drive-
through if you must. Making it yourself
adds to the experience. Surprise your
family or girlfriend/boyfriend and ask
them on a picnic. A picnic is just tailgat-
ing without a ballgame.
3) Buy something for your car. New
floor mats, a GPS, a tire gauge, an acces-
sory, first-aid kit, etc. Something useful
or something cosmetic, it's up to you.
4) Wash and even wax it yourself. Get
that feeling of personal satisfaction that
can only be achieved by your own elbow

grease. Turn on the
radio during the win-
dow-washing, vacuum-
ing and waxing and
turn it up.
5) Take the scenic
route. Get off the inter-
state and allocate a little
extra time coining to or
going from a destina-
tion. Stop and smell the
roses and visit new
places or revisit old
ones. Reprogram
your mental outlook on


6) ,Put going to a drive-in movie on the
bucket list. As a kid in the '60's, it was a
big deal to see a drive-in movie. Located
on Route 30, outside York, Pa., it was a
classic scene of Americana. 'Maybe with
eroding real estate values they might
even make a comeback.
7) Ride on a ferry. Mayport is the
closest, but other longer and more
adventuresome choices exist around our
country. The recurring theme is that you
need to slow down and make a plan to
enjoy the experience.
8) Blow your horn at someone you
recognize. Most of us will go months or
even years without letting our horn
sound out Use it in a positive manner to
say hello and acknowledge a friend.
Make sure to pick the right'spot and not
startle a fellow driver. It is great for giv-
ing a hello to a walker. We live in a small
area where people will often recognize

your car. Surprise someone and make
them wonder why you did it.
9) Take your vehicle in for a checkup.
Keep your vehicle healthy and don't wait
too long between visits.
10) Part company. Sometimes the
chemistry is wrong between car and
driver. Your local new and used car deal-
ers will facilitate the change to a healthi-
er situation.
The list could'go on and on, being
limited only by your imagination. Your
car is the outlet to experience things live
and in person. Let it take you on an
adventure soon. Give it a little more life
'and let it return the favor. This weekend,
my wife and I and three couples are off
on a road trip'. First, the Clemson/FSU
game Saturday (parents' day) and on to
Charlotte, N.C., for the battle of the cats
(Jaguars vs. Panthers). This tidbit is just
to verify that I am following my own con-
cepts.
. Today is the first day of autumn. Have
some fun with your car this fall. Have a
good week.

One-man play, wet city sidewalk


Everyone's an actor and all the world's a
stage. You don't have to go to the the-
ater to find someone performing his or
her art, either. Me? I like going to the
theater on occasion but I've found that the
most colorful actors, the best lines and the
most moving musical scores are often per-
formed on that concrete stage better known as
a sidewalk.
It happened to me just the other day. I
popped into Chamblin's Downtown in
Jacksonville, one of my favorite lunch haunts
these days because the meals are cheap and
I'm surrounded by books while I eat. Not to
mention that Jennifer, the lady who manages
the place, has become a pretty good friend and
never steers me wrong on a good read.
I was just biting into my tuna salad wrap'
when I heard the sound of music coming from
outside. I should start by saying the weather
was first-class crappy that day. It was pouring
down rain. Wait. Let me back up even further.
Ron Chamblin has an old upright piano out-
side on the sidewalk in front of his bookstore.
It sort of scrooches right up to the front win-
dow directly beneath the store's awning.
I've seen more than one impromptu piano
recital on that old, out of tune upright, but this
one.took the proverbial biscuit. There, seated
on the piano bench not 10 feet away and com-
pletely oblivious to the clouds, traffic, pouring
rain and stares of the lunch crowd and
passersby sat a diminutive black man with a
shiny bald head, dressed in a tan jogging suit


darting his fingers up and
down the keyboard so fast
.a they were nearly a blur. I rec-
ognize that tune, I thought,
straining my ears to hear
T through the glass window-
' '. S pane and the conversation
Around me. What is it, what
is it? And then it hit me, the
slow, sweet introduction to
CUP OF "Free Bird." I repositioned
JOE my chair for better viewing
_.., ^ and listening.
I'm a Lynyrd Skynyrd fan.
Joe Palmer I've got every one of the
famously ill-fated Jacksonville rock band's
albums. OK, so call me Bubba. But I know this
much. The long version of "Free Bird" runs
pretty close to 11 minutes, so I decided to time
the man playing it in the rain. I don't know
how he did it but he managed to play a version
pretty close to 11 minutes.
The rain slanted down in gray sheets and
the little bald-headed man just kept hammer-
ing away on the ivories right on down to the
soaring finale. His vocals weren't too shabby,
either. I wanted to stand and applaud but was
afraid I'd scare him away. He didn't seem to
notice that he had an audience.
He didn't even take a breather when he hit
the last note of "Free Bird," but segued right
into 'Tuesday's Gone," another lengthy
Skynyrd anthem. Now I've never heard
"Tuesday's Gone" played entirely on a piano,


although it does have a piano solo in it. But
when this little guy played it, he did it with
such emotion it nearly brought tears to my
eyes.
The rain let up for awhile and changed
from a deluge to a steady drizzle. The piano
man played right on through it and was still
playing when I finished the last bite of my
wrap and the last drop of my soup. I got up
and sauntered to the counter where Ron was
putting away books.
I told him I'd never heard anyone play
"Free Bird" on a piano before, especially
like that. Ron considered it for a moment and
said there was a bad key in the piano that
needed fixing. The piano is festooned with
handmade lettering and art. The guy who
did it is terminally ill and doesn't have long to
live, Ron told me. Bummer. Just what the
world doesn't need nowadays, one less cre-
ative soul.
I asked Ron what kind of piano it is and he
said he didn't know. It's been sitting there
awhile. It's not unusual to see someone come
along and give an impromptu recital. Last one
I saw was a teenage girl who played Chopin.
You don't tip, just listen and appreciate. I wish
I had the guts to do it but my playing stinks
worse than my socks.
I went outside and watched the bald man
play awhile. Moisture glistened on his head
but he was bent on his muse. A one-man play -
on a wet city sidewalk.

Innovation is key to our future


Internet last week, I
stumbled upon a
Google Archives arti-
cle that made me chuckle.
The article ran in the St.
Petersburg Times on Jan. 7, 1992.
It touted the introduction of a
videophone, from the American
Telephone & Telegraph Co., that
allowed consumers to send and
receive video and voice calls.
"The 6-pound phone contains a
built-in camera arid tiny video
screen and is about the size of a
phone-answering machine," said
the article.
And it only cost $1,500!
That was 19 years ago, prehis-
toric times where technology is
concerned.
I didn't get
my first cell-
phone until 1994.
It wasn't as big
as the early brick
phones, but it
was too big to
,put in my pocket.
I paid $20 a
HUMOR month for the
S service and, if I
remember cor-
.- rectly, 35 cents
Tom Purcell for every minute
used during peak
time. That cost added up fast.
But it was worth every penny.
I still have bad memories of
my high school years in the late
'70s, when I spent hours standing
by the payphone trying to call my
parents for a ride home.
That's because we had only
one phone line, and my five sis-
ters tied up the line every
moment of the day. Since call wait-
ing hadn't been invented, all I
ever got was the buzzing busy sig-
nal.,
When was the last time you
heard one of those?
Caller ID was not yet common-,
place, either, so I was forced to
spend hours screening calls for
my sisters. They made me tell
whatever fellow was calling them
that they weren't home.
I always felt bad for those fel-
lows because the brothers of the
girls I was calling were telling me
the exact same lies.
Alas, advances in technology
would soon resolve these prob-
lems.
By 1990, about 70 percent of
Americans had 'answering

machines and were using them to
screen their calls.
Caller ID finally eliminated the
need of brothers across America
to lie for their sisters.
And call waiting made it possi-
ble for high school kids to get
hold of their parents for a ride no
matter who was tying up the line.

The point is, America has
enjoyed so much technology inno-
vation so fast, we have come to
take it for granted but we
shouldn't.
Consider some of the top
innovations from the past 50
years, according to Popular
Mechanics:
Microwave oven, 1955. Jet air-
liner, 1959. Integrated circuit,
1959. Communications satellite,
1962. Coronary bypass surgery,
1967. Smoke detector, 1969. MRI,


1973. Personal computer, 1977.
GPS, 1978. DNA matching, 1984.
Genetic sequencing, 1998. MP3
player, 1998.
Innovation is the ticket to a
better economy and future.
Heck, when Jimmy Carter was
president, he said the world was
going to run' out of oil but tech-
nology advancements made it pos-
sible to find and extract oil deeper
down.
Despite our current woes,
America is plum full of creative
geniuses who are right now inno-
vating important innovations that
will drive massive efficiencies and
real wealth.

Authors In Schools


planning under way


'Each year thousands of, '
Nassau C,'unt) students and
their teachers get to meet
and interact with apublished
author, thanks to the Amelia
Island Book Festival.
Bringing the Authors In
Schools Program (AIS) to
every public school in the
county is no easy task.
Books written for children
and young adults are submit-
ted each year by local and
regional authors, and
reviewed by the committee for
quality, age appropriateness
and general entertainment
value. Fernandina Beach
Middle School media special-.
ist Brenda Carr has chaired
AIS since 2007, and her com-
mittee members Attavia'
Facciolo, Terry Ramsay and
Terri Dean are seasoned
Festival Board Members and
highly qualified arbiters of
good reading.
"Many people tell us that
they consider Authors In
Schools to be the most impor-
tant part of putting on the
annual Amelia Island Book
Festival," said Board
President Facciolo. "Students,
from curious 4-year-old
kindergarteners to high
school seniors, are enter-
tained and enlightened by the
authors we bring to Nassau
County schools. They get to
hear firsthand what motivates
the writer to write and they
discover a love of reading on a
very personal level. Through ,


the years, the response has
ben uverwhelmingly pusiliv-
from students and teachers'
alike," she added.
But students and teachers
are not the only ones who
enjoy AIS. Authors also love
the program. Local author
Ron Kurtz, who has been a
participant in AIBF for
many years, wrote to organiz-
ers regarding his day at a
VPK last year, "This was a
marvelous experiencelfor
me."
. Singer/songwriter Darrell
House from South Florida "
said, "Fernandina Beach is
such a treasure ...I am so
pleased to be part of your
unique book festival." First-
timer Jennifer Swanson from
Jacksonville wrote, "I had a
wonderful time!" Author/sto-
ryteller Gerald Hausman from
Southwest Florida wrote the
week after the festival in his
blog, "From front to back this
was a great festival in a town
of old Southern grace and
gentility.... When we were
invited to tell stories there, we
were delighted."
Friday, Feb. 17 is the
day authors will visit local
schools.
The Amelia Island Book
Festival is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-
profit organization dedicated
to promoting literacy by bring-
ing readers and writers
together. Visit www.ameliais-

One Can food drive under way
The One Can food drive is under way at Southside Elementary and Emma Love Elementary to benefit the
Barnabas Center. Just recently, students collected 583 cans of food and over the last two years have provided
nearly 10,000 pounds of food to the food pantry. Principal Cindy Olsen and parent volunteer Maria Murphy start-
ed the campaign understanding the importance of schools being tied in with communities. "One Can is a simple
concept. We only want One Can, once a month." The program has been so successful that the schools estimate a
50 percent participation rate. School and Barnabas volunteers include the principals, Maria Murphy, Kevin
Moisan, Phyllis Hockett, Christie Mikla's, Debbie Cook, Dave Bullen and Dudley Benesch. Above from left, along
with the students, are Cindy Olson, principal of Southside Elementary, Maria Murphy, and Dr. Eric Larsen, princi-
pal of EmmaiLove Elementary.


Special fundraiser
,Yulee Middle School's
cheerleaders recently
held a fundraiser for
special needs classes at
YMS. The cheerleaders
held a "Give Back Night"
at Chili's in Yulee on
Sept. 7, raising $210,
which they then donated
to pay for six field trips
for students in the class-
es of Coach Lester Smith
and Coach Andrew Hale.
The cheerleaders
came up with the
fundraiser idea after they
pledged to do four hours
of community service as .
part of National School
Spirit Week. They felt
very strongly about help-
ing other students at
YMS. At left are the

The company offers a wide variety of products including GAF/Elk,

offer a complete line of warranties.
With last year's changes to the state of Florida's wind mitigation roofing
requirements, there are many new savings opportunities for residential and

their homeowners' and wind insurance policies," said Boyd. "We work closely
with local insurance agents and have seen that many

Bowden regrets his prostate cancer secrecy


Former Florida State foot-
ball coach Bobby Bow-
den, who retired with 377
wins and two national
championships, spent much of his
adult life in the public eye. On the
field, his every move was scruti-
nized, especially as he advanced
in years. So, it is hard to believe
he really could keep something so
personal out of the public sector.
But he was able to do just that.
Bowden, who turns 82 in
November, recently reported that
in 2007 he was diagnosed and
treated for prostate cancer and
that no one besides his-wife, his
immediate family and his doctors
ever knew about it.
Bowden said he never wanted
others to find out about it because
he didn't want them to use it
against him in recruiting battles
for players or to have those clam-
oring about his age to have anoth-
er reason to voice that he should
retire.
"I could just hear the recruits ,
being told, 'Don't go to Florida
State, Coach Bowden is dying,'"
Bowden said. "I couldn't let that
happen."
The prostate is a small gland


found only in
men. It is located
just below the
bladder and is
approximately
* the size of a wal-
nut.
Prostate can-
cer is typically a
S slow growing
4'0 tumor but, in
nOanTC some cases, can
aPT Sl J spread more rap-
MEDICINE idly. Other than
skin cancer,
GREGORY prostate is the
most common
SMITH. M.D. cancer in men.
-*-- The
American Cancer Society esti-
mates that some 240,000 men
(nearly one in six) will contract
the disease and, of those, nearly
27,000 (one in 34) will die. Of
those cancers causing death in
men, prostate ranks second
behind lung cancer.
Risk factors include increasing
age with nearly two-thirds of the
cancers found in men over the
age of 65. It is also more common
in African-Americans and, for
some unknown reason, African-


Americans are twice as likely to
die with the disease.
Prostate cancer does show a
strong family history as well.
Dietary factors also seem to play
a role with an increase noted with
a high red meat and high fat diet.
Bowden said he would check
into the hospital at midnight
under a fake name and be treated
in remote locations of the hospi-
tal. Dr. Joe Camps, the captain of
his first team at FSU in 1976,
planted radioactive seeds in
Bowden's prostate and, after his
treatment, he would be released
five hours later.
Bowden now wishes he had
spoken up sooner because he
realizes his story can encourage
others to seek treatment, treat-
ment that may save their lives. He
is now on a national speaking tour
on behalf of On the Line, a nation-
al prostate cancer awareness pro-
gram.
Symptoms associated with pro-
state cancer include impotence,
blood in the urine, pain, lower
extremity weakness or loss of
bowel or bladder control. Screen-
ing exams for prostate cancer
include a digital rectal exam per-


formed by your primary care
physician and a blood test called a
PSA (prostate specific antigen).
The American Cancer Society
recommends doctors offer yearly
testing for men when they reach
the age of 50. Men who have a
positive family history or have a
higher risk due to associated risk
factors are advised to begin test-
ing at the age of 40.
Today Bowden is cancer free,
and admits, "If I knew then what I
know now, I would have gone
public with my cancer. There is
simply no reason for men not to
get checked. I didn't want to talk
to my doctor about it, and that
was wrong."

cuss issues regarding sports, medi-
cine and safety. It is not intended to

ACT opens 31st season


For the News-Leader
Amelia Community Theatre
opens its 31st season on
Thursday with "The Seven Year
tch," a comedy about love and
marriage by George Axelrod.
Set in New York in 1952, it's summer
in the city and Richard Sherman's wife
and young son are escaping the heat to
stay at the beach. Richard, who works
for a paperback publishing company
that wants to sensationalize The Scarlet
Letter, plans to join them on the week-
ends. But meanwhile, he's alone and
restless in his apartment as he remem-
bers his wife's strict orders to watch
what he eats and drinks, and irritated
that she plans to check up on him with
nightly phone calls.
After seven years of marriage, he's
wondering if life is passing him by and
reflects that "women age quicker than
men" and soon everyone will think his
wife is his mother.
Richard's life takes an unexpected
turn after a chance encounter with the
beautiful upstairs neighbor, known as'
The Girl, and he spends the next three
days in a comic struggle to sort out
guilt, pleasure, fantasy and reality.
After a successful run on Broadway,
"The Seven Year Itch" was made into a
movie with Marilyn Monroe in 1955, but
with some story changes demanded by
the film censors.
The ACT show is directed by Linda
McClane, who enjoys the fact that
Richard's very active imagination steers
the play in absurd directions. "The
dream scenes are fun for the actors
because their characters can be big and
dramatic or silly with contrary behav-
iors, and Richard's fertile mind even
gives them opportunities for a lot of
physical comedy," McClane notes.
Longtime ACT favorite Kevin Kasser
plays Richard and newcomer Gisella
Nieto is The Girl. Laura Swaim is Helen,

in Amelia Community Theatre's "The Seven Year Itch," which opens
Thursday. Standing, back row, are Sara Williams, Lisa Glasco and Susan

/SO season celebratesAmerican spirit


Led by Music Director and Principal
Conductor Fabio Mechetti, the 2011-12
season of the Jacksonville Symphony,
Orchestra is pure excitement, featuring
violin superstar Joshua Bell, a three-
month Beethoven Festival, Puccini's La
Boheme, Copland's Appalachian Spring,
Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony and
Mozart's "Jupiter" Symphony.
The spirit of American determination
lies behind the music by the
Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra in
just about every performance.
"On opening night, you will feel just
how powerfully an American orchestra
can project the quality and the diversity
of what is American," said Mechetti.
The program opens tonight and
Saturday with Charles Ives' Variations
on'America.."His music paved new
paths for other composers, partly
because of his non-academic training.
'Ives united imagination, dare, criticism
and witticism with elements typical of
American culture," said Mechetti.
Broadway mega-star George
Gershwin always had an inner drive to

be abetter composer. "His Piano
Concerto in F exemplifies classical form
with a definite American language that
permeates its three beautiful move-
ments," Mechetti added about the open-
ing concert. The Illinois-born soloist,
Conrad Tao, is a fantastic pianist, an
accomplished American composer and


just 17 years old. Concluding the
evening is of the most significant works
of American repertoire, Aaron
Copland's Third Symphony,
A closer look at the symphony's fall
lineup reveals a fascinating variety of
American popular music. Programs
include a tribute to Louis Armstrong
(Sept.30-Oct. 1), Muisic of the Americas:
Moncayo's Huapango and Rodrigo's
Concierto Andaluz with the Los Angeles
Guitar Quartet (Oct. 6-8) and music of
Frank Zappa and Astor Piazzolla with
dance (Oct. 13-14), a flashback to the
golden era of 1950s television (Oct. 21-
22), and a Veteran's Day salute with the
Soldiers' Chorus of the United Starts
Army Field Band (Nov. 11-12). Tickets
are available through the Jacksonville
Symphony Box Office at (904) 354-5547,

Jazz vocalist to


headline festival


For the News-Leader
"It was quite a thrill per-
forming at one of New York's,
finest jazz venues," said the
sophisticated and soulful
songstress Nicole Henry,
reflecting on her recent
appearance at Dizzy's Club
Coca-Cola, an adjunct to the
Jazz At Lincoln Center pro-
gram in Manhattan, where
she has become a strong jazz
cabaret attraction.
Henry will bring a similar
show to the 2011 Amelia
Island Jazz Festival, Oct. 7, in
an expanded setting in the St.
Peter's Episcopal Church
courtyard.
For her performance here
Henry will be backed by the
Les DeMerle Jazz All-Stars,
with whom she has sung pre-
viously. "I met Les and his
wife (Bonnie Eisele) when we
were all playing shows on the
Celebrity Infinity cruise ship
touring Alaska, and we really
hit it off well musically." Since
then DeMerle, the AIJF artis-
tic director, has stayed in
touch and is delighted to have
booked her for this year's fes-
tival.
"Nicole is an outstanding
song stylist, one of the best.
I'm sure our jazz fans here
will be knocked out by her
concert," he said. Henry was
equally effusive about singing
with the DeMerle band once
again. "I always look forward
to working with Les's group,
and'we will be coupling our
respective energies to pro-
duce a really great time."
A highly regarded vocalist
with three international Top
10 selling jazz albums to her
credit, Henry has just
released her fourth,
Embraceable, on the
Artistshare label. The album
represents growth and matu-
rity on her part. While she
made a name for herself as a
distinctive interpreter of clas-
sic jazz standards, for the new
CD she leans more towards
originals and deep cover
tunes, including Bob Marley's
'Waiting In Vain."
"I love writing songs," she
said, "and I plan to continue
adding original material to my
repertoire." For her perform-
ance on Amelia Island she will
sing a "good mixture of songs
old and new to make every-
one happy."
Born and raised in
Philadelphia, Pa., Henry stud-
ied cello, took ballet and
began singing in church
choirs early on. She earned a
full academic scholarship to
the University of Miami
where she majored in adver-
tising and theater. Given the

Festival.

influence of the bountiful
rhythm and blues scene in
her hometown of
Philadelphia, she recorded
dance music in Miami and
one of her songs, "Miracle,"
made the Billboard dance
charts for eight weeks. It was
then that she realized. that a
far-reaching music career was
possible. "I knew I wanted to
use art to affect people's lives.
And that's what I can accom-
plish through my singing: to
help people relate to their
feelings, and then celebrate
those feelings."
In 2004 she fell in love with
the melodies, lyrics and free-
dom of jazz and was promptly
entranced by several of the
genre's all-time great singers,
especially Sarah Vaughan and
Carmen McCrae. Her solo
debut CD, The Nearness of
You", garnered worldwide crit-
ical acclaim, and HN Japan
named her "Best New Jazz
Artist Of 2004."
From that point she quick-
ly became an international
jazz star and began non-stop
touring throughout the
United States, Europe, and
Japan. A regular at New York
City's Metropolitan Room,
Henry garnered rave reviews
for her performances from
The New York Times and
Billboard, and she was subse-
quently honored by the city's
cabaret scene with the 2010
Bistro Award For
Outstanding Jazz Vocalist.
Now based in Miami, Henry
will be playing her first
engagement in Northeast
Florida as a stunning headlin-
er for this year's festival week.
The festival will kick off
with its now traditional free

ANTICIPATION HIGH AS OHIO VALLEY GOLD &

SILVER REFINERY OPENS FOR BUSINESS NEXT WEEK

IN FERNANDINA BEACH!


LOCAL RESIDENTS
READY TO CASH IN!

International buye's
in town next week
and ready to stimulate
economy!

By David Morgan
STAFF WRITER

If you have a jewelry box wiith bing from
an old fling or a coffee can full of old
coins, you may want to haul it down to
the Hampton Inn Amelia Island next
week. "The gold and silver markets have
not been this strong for over 30 years"
said Dennis Kouts Ohio Valley Refinery
spokesperson. Typically when the U.S.
dollar is weak.and the economy is flat,
gold and silver markets soar. "That's
good news if you are sitting on a few
gold necklaces or an old class ring" says
Kouts.
Starting next Tuesday at 9am and
through Saturday, the Ohio Valley
Refinery is setting .up a satellite refinery
right here 'in Fernandina Beach at
the Hampton Inn Amelia Island.
During their 5 day stay, anyone can
bring gold silver, pre-1970 coins and
turn-them into'cash on the spot-explains
Dennis Kouts. "Just about everybody
has some amount of gold or sil'.er just
lying around collecting dust and next

purchase all gold, silver, pre-1970 coins and platinum items. Public welcome!


week anybody can sell theirs direct to
our refinery. Typically selling direct to a
refinery, is reserved for larger wholesale
customers like je,..'elrv stores,, pawn
h.:.op and laboraiories so', sKouts. "We
are chronrgqin ..-. business is done," he
explains "we waht to do business with
everybody so we took our business-to
the streets".' "Our teams visit various
cities around the country .hosting 5 day
events and oll.:..-. .r.n the general public
to take advantage of 'our services. "The
turnout has been o..,.ei helminging" says
Kouts. "Usually each da:, is busier than
the previous day. It seems once people
come to us and sell something, ihe, are
so amazed what an old ring or gold coin
is worth, they go home and start digging
around for more and telling relatives,
friends and neighbors. It's like a feeding
frenzy by the third day. People line up
with everything from gold je'.'.'elry to
sterling silver :lai'.-are sets to old coins. I
think during this bad economy everybody
can use extra money, but most people
say they are taking advantage of selling
direct to our refinery because of the
higher prices we pay".


During this special event, on\one is
welcome to bring all types of gold, sla.er
and platinum to the refinery and turn it
in for instant poynert The types of items
they will accept include all gold jewelry,
gold coins, gold ounces, dental gold. old
coirn made before 1970 including siker
dollars, halves, quarters and dimes,
anything marked "sterlinrc including
flatware sets, tea pots silver bars, silver
ounces and all industrial precious rneta.
What should you expect if you
90 to the event to sell your gold and/
or silver? Just gather up all gold sl-'er
and platinum in any form. If you are
hot sure if it's gold or silver bring it in
and they will test it for free. When you
arrive at the event you .vill be asked to
fill out a simple registration card and
will be issued a number. Seating will be
available. .When your number is called
you will be escorted to a table where
your items will be examined, tested and
sorted. This onl, takes a few minutes
using their expertise and specialized
equipment. Items will be counted and/
or weighed The value of the items
will be determined based on up to the


minute market prices. Live feeds will be
available at the event displaying current
market prices of all precious metals. If
you choose to seJl your items, they will
be bagged and tagged and you will be
escorted to the cashier to' collect your
payment. Waiting time to sell your items
may range from just a few -ninute., to 1
hour, so bring something to read. If you
are the owner of a jewelry store, pown
shop, dentist office or a dealer you are
encouraged to call ahead to. make an
appoinirrrenr with the smelt master to
discuss their .special dealer programs.
They can be reached during Pefinery
hours at (217) 787-7767.
