Hazing alleged



at high school

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leadei
Police and school officials are inves-
tigating claims of hazing against the
Fernandina Beach High School
wrestling team after a freshman
wrestler was left bruised and battered,
according to Fernandina Beach Police
Chief Jim. Hirley.
Hurley said the. parents of one
wrestler told police Capt. David Bishop
and, Assistant .Principal Spencer
Lodree on Wednesday of an alleged
battery at the school;
"We're investigating what
occurred," Hurley said
The police chiv-f said detectives
would speak withothers before con-
cluding their investigation.
The parents said the incident hap-
pened after school at Mond,,y's prac-
tice, according to.apolice report. The
wrestler's teammates struck him more
than 14 times wilh a paddle, his p:r-
ents told police Police saiid injuries to


lthl v'ictifi's .buttocks were.so severe
thatlarge' brtiisesi. lingered three days
after the incident.
FBHS Principal Jane Arnold con-
firmed there is an incident under inves-
tigation, but declined to elaborate.
Nassau County Schools Superin-
tendent Dr. John Ruis said hazing vio-
lates the code of conduct outlined in
the student handbook and there are
disciplinary procedures provided for
instances of it.
"We're ready to enforce those if
and when we need to," he said.
The student handbook says:
"Hazing means any act or situation that
recklessly or intentionally endangers
the mental or physicalhealth or safety
of a student at a high school with
grades 9-12 for purposes, including,
but not limited to, initiation or admis-
sion into or affiliation with (an activity)
operating under the sanction of a high
school with grades 9 through 12."

Commissioner Eric Childers -each of
whom lost their reelection bids. City
workers hung the banner over North
Eighth Street near the intersection
with Centre and Atlantic on the day
before the election.
: It was removed on Election Day
after citizen complaints at the inbstruc-
tion of City Clerk Mary Mercer; who is
responsible for overseeing city elec-
tions in conjunction:with the Nassau
County Supervisor of .Elections
Mercer had nrot seen thebanner before
itwas installed'
City Attorney' Tammi Bach had
approved tlie banner beforehand but
not its specific wording. It was
removed, she said, because it did not
have a disclaimer required by state
law that requires those making "inde-
pendent expenditures" on behalf of
candidates to note that it is paid polit-
ical advertising and to put their name
onthe sign..
Bach ruled that the city could not
regulate the content of signs except
for obscenities because of federal
rights to freedom of speech. The sign
code regulates "time, place and man-
ner," but not content, including politi-
cal advertising, she said..
On Thursday, Bach declined fur-
ther commnine nt t1til tht. investigation is
completed.
Local attorney John Cascone,
among others, said the banner violate
ed local and state election laws because
city workers put it up and took it down,
City employees spent time processing
a permit, exchanging emails and oth-
erwise discussing whether the banner
was appropriate.
Local resident Mike Thompson was
one of two citizens who formally com-
plained about the campaign banner.
He called it "a bold and apparently ille-
gal attempt to corrupt and subvert yes-
terday's Fernandina Beach general
election . with assistance (or no
resistance) fiom our city officials," and
cited specific state election laws in a

4-1 offers 10 categories cov-

theater, art, healthy lifestyles
and environmental sciences
and many more?
4-H is a "learn by doing".

ages 5-18, supervised by adult
volunteers. While 4-H goals and
values have remained the same
over the last 100 years, the
activities and projects.haverkept

a new generation. 4-H is not
just a program for farm fami-.

too. Today, 4-H is.the largest
out-of-school youth'program in
the U.S., with over seven mil-
lion members and 500,000 teen
and adult volunteers.
SToday's .youths need to
know they are an integral part
of our future success as a
nation. They need to experi-
ence a sense of.physieal and
emotional safety, while being
an important part of a groutp.

Many state and national

the lives of young people.This
research shows that 4-H par-

well in school, getting more A's

respectful and considerate of
others, be involved as leaders in
their school and the communi-

FRIDAY, DEc:;MIB3ER 2,2011, News-Leader


OPINION


VIEWPOINT/MIKE BOYLE/AMELA ISLAND



Change doesn't have to be scary


lie News-Leader regu-
larly contains letters
from local curmudg,
eon Stanley Bunch.
His latest epistle (Nov. 16)
was similar to his many earlier
ones, which basically say: All
)f our local ills can be traced
io newcomers, all elected offi-
cials are either incompetent or
corrupt (or both), Fernandina-
natives are being forced out of
their beloved homes by new-
comers. and life was so much '
better for everyone in
Fernandina Beach 50 years
ago. And did I mention that
newcomers are the root of all
these evils?
S In my previous role as a
county commissioner, I had
the opportunity to interact
with Stanley on a.wide variety
of issues, and I quickly discov-
ered how some df these
issues were defined. For
example, you could not qualify
as a "native" unless you lived
in your home for more than


50 years
and/or
could
S show that
your fami-
ly had
fr been here
for three
or more,
genera-
Boyle tions. If
you could-
n't meet
one of these qualifications,
you were automatically a,
"newcomer."
He writes oftthe anticipated
."removal of the poor (and)
middle-class old timers" from
the island to "communes in
Italia, Lessee or Kings Ferry."
He says, "The rich folks don't
Sworry me. ... It's the rich.
wannabes toting the fake
Gucci handbags that you have
to watch out for. It's the aver-
age folks (i.e., Stanley) carry-
ing the J.C. Penney handbags
that will have to pay for all


these fancy (government)
projects." (This sounds a little
like the class warfare we see
coming out of Washington.)
In another letter Stanley
writes, "All amenities; such as
schools and roads, will be paid
for by taxing people like us
(.e., "natives") that haven't
had a child in school for 30
years and drive 2,000 miles
per year." The dictionary
defines amenity as "an attrac-
tive feature or convenience,"
and only in Stanley's world are
roads and schools not consid-
ered critical needs, but simply
'amenities." As for Stanley not
having a child in the local
schools "for 30 years," 1 guess
he no longer counts grand-
children as family members.
His most recent submis-
sion states, "The first thing
they (newcomers) want to do
when they get here is to start
cloning Fernandina to look
like every other tourist town.
.. and the towns they (new-
comers) are leaving behind. If
Fernandina is such an ideal
place to live, why keep trying'
to change it?" He goes on.to
tell readers that there are only

two businesses on Centi'e
Street that were there 50
years ago (a family jewelry
store and a saloon). "All the
other businesses seem to
cater to the tourist trade."
Let's take a quick look at
that last jab (tourism). In
Nassau County, 23 percent of
the workforce is employed in.
the hospitality industry (most-'
ly on Amelia Island), and last
year tourists spent $251 mil-
lion (a quarter of a, billion dol-
lars) in our county (think of
the millions in tourist tax dol-
lars that benefit all county citi-
zens). Just two tourist proper-
ties, Og i Amelia Island
Plantation and The Ritlz
Carlt6n, Amelia Island,
employ, lo',re local people
than both of thd paper mills
c(,mbiia-dA Alnd yes, these are
both "newcomers."
Theifaerejce that,'new-
comers" are responsible for
small local retail shops clos-
ing, as well as new major retail
chains opening in ,iti area, is
flattering (that we"wdulldhave:
such influence), but such a
theory is totally without merit.
The new stores on Sadler
Road, as well as the big-box
stores in'Yulee, did not sud-
denly appear because "new-
comers" simply asked for
them (as Stanley would have
you believe), but rather
because savvy retailers identi-
fied an underserved market in
Nassau County and decided to

invest millions of dollars to
bring new choices to our resi-
dents. It's called Capitalism,
Stanley, and with those new
stores came hundreds of new
construction jobs as well as
retail jobs once the stores '
opened. And is there anyone
out there who truly misses
the two-hour roundtrip adven-
ture of going to Jacksonville
for simple items that used to
be unavailable bn the island? I
sure don't.
Do many people (besides
Stanley) really want to go
back to the lifestyle of the
Fernandina of 50 years ago?

about our award-winning.
parks, schools and beach
restoration that has occurred
since the 1960s (and today's'
parks, schools and beaches
are open to all Nassau County
residents).


S"Change" is inevitable, an'd
it isn't always good. But the
reality is that "change" has
come to Nassau County as it
has to hundreds of similar
counties across the country,
and we have been blessed
that most of our change has
been positive (new jobs, new
developments, new opportuni-
ties, new choices). Sure, it
may take a few more minutes
to reach 1-95 than it did. 50 (or
SJust il0) years ago, but many

bankruptcy would find that a
small price to pay for .the ben-
efits we've received.
But "change" can be diffi-
cult for'some residents, even
if it's positive:.To those like
Stanley who find "change"
threatening or unwelcome, let
me recommend one of the
best books ever written on
the subject, Who Moved My
'Cheese? by Spencer Johnson,
M.D. (Putnam Publishers).
It's a ciuick and easy read
(only 94 pages), and I prom-
ise you that after you've read.
it, you will never fear
"change" again.

We'll have a holly jolly Christmas


The turkey carcass has been picked clean
and the bones boiled for soup. The last of the
cranberry sauce has been scooped from the
bowl and the last nibble of sweet potato pie
devoured. With heavy eyes, sagging bellies
and untrustworthy bathroom scales, we say
adieu to another Thanksgiving holiday.
Hellllloooo, Christmas. That's right, in case
you haven't been to a mall, big-box store or
shopping center since October, those sappy
elevator songs about snow and sleigh bells are
called Christmas carols. The happy sappy ones
I actually enjoy. But if I hear "Grandma Got
Run Over By a Reindeer" once more this
week, I'm going to lower my standards of
human decency and holiday good cheer and
go find the guy who wrote it and force him to
eat a'whole Claxton fruitcake all by himself.
-Can we say enough already? Sheesh, it's
almost as bad as those barking dogs doing
"Jingle Bells."
OK, so you can present me with my Grinch
award now.
Actually, I love the lead up to Christmas
Day almost as much as I love Christmas itself.
That happens when you're an overgrown kid
like me. We didn't have the last of the
Thanksgiving dishes' put away yesterday
before I was up in the attic pulling down the
Christmas decorations. Before long, my wife
got in the mood and joined me.
"W6w, what got you started so early this
year?" she asked, poking her head into the
attic where I was crab walking along a narrow
walkway toward a pile of boxes containing var-


ious and sundry decorations.
"I usually have to prod you a
bit to get you into the attic." '
I stopped humming that
old Christmas favorite of
mine by Roy Orbison, "Pretty
Papers," and turned around
to give her my cheerful reply.
"I dunno," I said. "I woke
CuP OF up feeling in the Christmas
CUPOF spirit this morning and decid-
JOE ed to get an early start on it
so we can take our time and
Enjoy the decorating and not
Joe Palmer feel rushed and pressured to
get it done."
'And that was the truth, too. My wife and I
have been married nearly 35 years and most of
the time we get along like milk and honey. But
I gotta be honest, and I know I'm probably
speaking for A whole lot of couples, some of
our worst affairs of marital un-bliss have been
a direct result of something so simple as hang-
ing Christmas ornaments. Combine that with a
bad cold, cheap Chinese-made light bulbs that
\ glow enchantingly until you put the ladder
back in its spot in the garage and then they all
short out at once and the knowledge that your
decorations were so tacky last year that you
feared your neighborhood association would
make you take them down and you've got all
the lyrics to "I'll Have a Blue Christmas."
I can still recall us arguing, yes, arguing,
which side of the crib Joseph and Mary should
stand on with respect to the Baby Jesus in our


outdoor manger scene.
"Arrrrrr, #@&*% it, woman!" I finally swore
in exasperation. "Just put 'em somewhere,
&*A%#@ it!"
SAnd she narrowed those Christmas tree
green eyes at me and gave me a look that
would melt the polar ice caps.
"You're taking all the fun out of it,
Groucho," she fumed. "And besides, it's a sin
to cuss around the manger scene."
"What?"
So this year we started early. And it paid
off. I got smart,this year and tested all the
bulbs first, weeding out the losers from the
winners before I strung them. I followed my
wife's directions this year and actually meas-
ured the distance between each pole mounted
hurricane lantern along the sidewalk. Most -
years, they resemble a set of dentures made
by a cross-eyed dentist. I had the votive glass-
es in them and the candles in the votive glass-
es before it ever got dark.
Finally, just as it was getting dark, we start-
ed hanging the decorations and lights. We
draped the shrubs withtiny red:lights, the low
greenery with tiny white lights and set the
whole thing off with a border of tiny green
lights. We have two big, lighted wreaths that
hang from each of the front bedroom windows
facing the street. In past years, for some rea-
son, I didn't connect the lights. This year I did.
Boydid it make a difference.
Even the manger scene went without a
glitch. Baby Jesus is wearing a smile.

COMMUNITY THANKS

Good hearts
Despite the difficult economic times for
everyone, hearts still seem to be in the right
place when it comes to giving time arnd treas-
ure.
Thanks are due to our wonderful Amelia
Island community, which supported the
Amelia Challengd. This event accomplished
one of the goals of the Rotary Club of Amelia
Island Sunrise, which is raising money for.
local'and worldwide needs. This fun event
requires a lot of community support and, in its
second year, the support was there.
Kudos to the teams who participated in
biking, running, walking, math problems, triv-
ia questions and "minute to win it" events that
had everyone laughing a lot. The top three
winning teams, Fernandina Beach Rotary
Club, First Coast Community Bank and CBC
Bank, won prize money for their designated
local charities.
The Sunrise Rotary Club is also thankful to
the many volunteers who planned for a full
year and worked at the event to make it as
seamless as it was. The Police Auxiliary Corps
made sure bikers arrived safely across the
finish line and Fernandina Beach High School
:provided the location.
SA surprising new addition was the band
No Alibi composed of Rotarians from Orange..
'Par k.'They gave an outstaAding(performance
-at their own great expense so that all pro-
ceeds would benefit charity. Locally owned
CB Advertising donated their professional tal-
ents ensuring the event was well marketed,
including awebsite with a millisecond count-
down. Our own News-Leaderwas kind enough
to give us a hefty slice of their print space,
Of course the Amelia Challenge wouldn't
. have gotten offof the ground in the first place
without sponsors and so a large portion of
thanksgoes to them. The first sponsor to: step,
Sto the plate was the Title Sponsor, Baptist
MedicalCenter Nassau. Gold sponsors were
Florida Public Utilities and First Coast
Community Bank. Silver Sponsors were
Red Otter Apparel, Footwear, Travel and
Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q, which donated
lunches to all participants. We.are so grateful
for businesses willing to share and .extend a
helping hand.
SThe event raised over $4,500 for local char-
ities as well as the: international nonprofit
Mercy Ships, a floating hospital helping devel- '
oping countries. For those of you who live,
work and volunteer on this island, aren't you
glad to be here? What a wonderful and gen-
erous part of the world!

Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise

RunningoftheBulls
Sixty years ago, while' in
Barcelona, Spain, I witnessed the
annual Running of the Bulls down
the narrow'streets of Barcel6na.
This event usually signaled the start
of the bullfight season was watch-
ing from a second-floor balcony.
Growing up on a livestock farm in
the Midwest, I learned early in life
That butting heads with a bull could
get very one-sided in a hurry.'
Almost as bad as butting heads with
Nassau County politicians,and the
fat cats,
'Watching the bulls run, I wor-
ried about the young people .run-
ning down the streets in'front of
the bulls and the imminent danger
they were in.
After watching and reading
about some store openings on Black
Friday morning, and all of the ensu-
ing chaos that followed, I'm con-
vinced the people in' front of the
bulls had a cakewalk in compari-
son with Black Friday openings. At
least they had a running chance.
Instead of calling it Black Friday,
I think Red Friday would be more
appropriate as pnost shoppers will
stay in the red for the coming year.
,I assume the merchants go.into the
black for the rest of the year. Maybe
SCheckerboard Friday would be a
more apt name.
Santa Claus shdws up earlier and
earlier every year. This year he
showed up in storefronts the first
part.of October. Poor old Pilgrims
and the ghosts and goblins don't
'stand a chance.
This year for Thanksgiving I
didn't know if I was eating Thanks-
giving turkey or Christmas turkey.
If Santa gets any earlier, he will be
Like this old farmer in 'the neigh-
borhood where I grew up. He never
was in sync.with all the other farm-
ers, but nobody could figure out
whether he was six months ahead
or six months behind everyone else.
When I was selling Christmas
trees, I always waited until the day
after Thanksgiving to start, even
though a lot of people wanted to
buy earlier. I did let people come
'and tag trees earlier for about 10
years, until the Grinch family came
along. Some would tag in October
and wait until December to cut.
Those'were the "'Good Ole
Days." Thanks again to the many
loyal customers, wherever you are.

Makesyou wonder
Recent articles in the News-
,Leader dealing with the.city and air-
port tree issue made me wonder
why. First, I am a retired military
pilot with a commercial multi-engine
instrument license. I have been fly-
ing out of Fernandina airport for
over 14 years both for the Civil Air
Patrol and as a private pilot in'aircraft
with both basic and high tech GPS
(Global Positioning System). Let me
first point out that Fernandina Beach
airport has two GPS instrument
approaches to Runways 13 and 22.
Runway 13 GPS Approach starts
12.6 nautical miles to the northwest
and Runway 22 GPS starts.12.5 nau-
tical miles to the northeast. Both
approaches have several geograph-
ical positions that the pilot must fly
to and descend to (a no lower than)
altitude.
As the pilot approaches the air-
port, the final descent point is 3 nau-
tical miles and an altitude is 420 feet
minimum descent altitude (airport
elevation is 16 feet above sea level)
from the runway. Th6 pilot either,
sees the runway and lands, or if he:
cannot land due to the visibility con-
ditions, does a missed approach and
either flies the approach again or
diverts to another airport. The argu-
ment that the airport needs addi-
tional approaches to cover all run-
ways is false, since both Runway 13
and 22 also have circling minimum


descent altitude of 4 feet, where as
the pilot could fly either approach,
see the airport at 480 feet altitude
and circle to land on one 6f the other
four runway headings. Over the past
14 years of flying at Fernandina
Beach airport, I only had three occa-
sions where I had to flya GPS instru-
ment approach due to weather con-
ditions, and one was to circling
minimums to land on a more favor-
able runway due to winds.
So, do we need to take down
trees and create more approaches?
In my opinion, no. Fernandina
Beach airport is not a regional air-
port, and is listed is a non-tower air-
port due tothe low amount of aircraft
traffic and the closeness of Jackson-
ville International Airport It is a fact
that the airport has three runways
(runways 22, 26 ard 31) with dis-
placed thresholds (an area starting
at the end of the runway to certain
point that the pilot may n6t land on)
to insure clearance over any obsta-
cles on the glide path. Theyare clear-
ly annotated in the FAA Airport
Facility Directory and Terminal
Procedures, plus painted lines and
arrows on the runways. To aid tie
pilot in maintaining a correct glide
path, several of the runways have a
PAPI (Precision Approach Path
Indicator) consisting of red and
white lights. If the lights are allwhite,
the airplane is above,the glide path;
all red below the glide path. An equal
number of red and White, the air-
plane is on the glide path and thus
will clear the obstacles. There is no
doubt, several of the trees on these
glide paths have grown in height
over the past years and topping or
removing them would be advisable,
but outright clearcutting would serve
no,useful purpose except for the
sake of a feWdollars.

Christmas spirit
Merry Christmas and Happy
New Year to the person who stole
my cane at the Yulee Walmart on
Nov. 29 around 2:30 p.m. Always
remember: 1) what goes around
comes around, and 2) someone else
is watching what you do.
It takes a real big person to steal
a disabled person's cane!

Disappointed
I wanted to express my disap-
pointment in the News-Leader for
the Nov. 23 publication your arti-
cle, "Pedestrian dies on AlA details'
remain scarce." It seems you had
plenty of details, old news of heart-
break that this family had already


experienced, including thiN mother
that lost her life.
My question is why bring this all
up now? The tragedy of her
deceased son had nothing to do
with the loss of Christine Miner,
his mother.
Hasn't this family suffered
enough without bringing back this
tragedy from the past? All of this
was just in time for Thanksgiving.

Agoodcause
I want to take this opportunity to
praise an ongoing effort by some
local folks and to ask for your help
and support for a good cause.
If you have lived on the island
for more than a week, you have been
hit up by one sports team or anoth-
er in an effort for them to raise
much needed funds. I am sure you
have'helped out when you can,
knowing the money was well spent
I would like to take this time to
praise the efforts of a few local
adults. (The hitting you up part is at
the end of the letter.)
The Fernandina Beach High
School baseball team does an annu-
al Boston Butt sale each December.
Sounds simple enough, but it really
isn't There are a group of men who
put in a lot of effort to make this
happen. These aren't the parents of
players. These are the parents of
past players who still feel the need,
to give back to a program that
helped their kids not only become
better players but, more important-
ly, helped them become better
adults. They .have been actively
involved in the program not only as
they watched their sons as players
or their daughters as batgirls, but for
years after the playing had stopped.
This year they have set a goal of
cooking over 200 butts. Think about
that for a minute 200 is a lot of
butts. They borrow smokers from all
over the island and set up a campsite
at the high school. Each butt has to
be rubbed with a secret mix of
"secret butt rub" then smoked -and
cooked overnight. They set up tents
and sleep at the field overnight, tak-
ing turns tending the smokers, then
wrapping each butt for pickup in the
early morning hours.
Why are fundraisers like this
important enough to have a bunch
of grown men sleep overnight on
chairs and cook 200 butts, usually on
a very cold night?
This year it will help fund a week-
end trip to the University of Auburn.
This will give the players an oppor-
tunity to play, a few games against
local high schools in Alabama. The
important part of the trip really isn't
playing a few ball games in another
state. The goal of such a trip is to
introduce them to sights and sounds


of a major university and the town
'that houses it. If just a few return
holding the dream to pursue an edu-
cation there or at any college of their
-choice; then Iam sure that each and
every one of tie men who slept out
in the cold cooking those butts will
feel that it was more than worth it.
This is the definition of giving back
to the community.
Now comes the hitting you up
part I mentioned earlier. The butts
are now on sale. They will be ready
for pickup Friday, Dec. 30. They are
approximately seven or eight pounds
and ready to eat. Think about it -
great for New Year's Eve or New
Year's Day- no cooking, Mom! They
are $30. Please call me at 557-8350 to
reserve one for pick up. Thankyou.

Feet tothe ire
SSimply put, if I owned derelict
property which was posing a safety
hazard the Code Enforcementfolks
would levy fines until I did the right
thing and cleaned up my property
("City will pay to clean property,"
Nov. 30). Where does Bank of
America get off thinking they can
simply decline to follow the rules?
'Maybe that is why they are in the
mess they are in today.
If I were king for a day, B of A
would not be allowed to walk away
from their responsibility. Fines
would be levied until the pain was so
bad they would clean up their mess,

Crossroads
The city of Fernandina is at a
crossroads. It needs real leadership
from its city commission. Only one
candidate in the runoff election has
the proven ability to make decisions
that affect a multimillion-dollar budg-
et, as well as the expertise to hold
hired personnel accountable ("City
commission candidates: Why I
deserve your vote," Nov. 30.)
John Elwell has 37 years of man-
agement experience. He can and
will hold the city manager account-
able. He can and will make the
tough decisions. A longtime resi-
dent, he is committed to this com-
munity and is a prudent fiscal con-
servative who will steward our tax
dollars and ensure that the city of
Fernandina remains fiscally sound.
I know John Elwell, his wife
Mary and their daughter Ali per-
sonally. I believe that John Elwell
can provide the leadership we need.
I encourage my friends and neigh-
bors to come out and vote for John
Elwell on Tuesday, Dec. 13.

people took the flyer to fill out and deliv-
Ser to COA, to pass the word to Santa
about all the good little boys and girls
they know. It might just result in these
kids getting a phone call from Santa
sometime before Christmas this year,"

how good decisions on their part translate for their fami-
lies and the community. The department's commitment
to the community is greatly appreciated and assures that
the youth will continue to make decisions that will con-
tribute to the well-being of our community for years to
come, said Den Leader .itpal Dutta. "We truly appreci-
ate the time spent with our.scouts and the attention to

Goodliem great music
For theNews-Leader I


or more than 15 years
the Amelia Island
community, ad espe-
cially the members of,
Amelia Baptist Church, have
benefited from the collabora-
tion of two good friends: Pam
Helton and Gall McCamy.
More than 20 years ago,
Neil and Pam'Helton moved
here as the first family called
to pastor the newly forming
Amelia Baptist Church. Gail
McCamy was already in town,
having arrived here to be a
music educator with the
Nassau County public
schools.
The story goes that Pam
took her fledgling choir to
perform a musical "Bind Us
Together" atthe FirsIt-.ptist
Church In need of an accom-
panist for the performance,
Pam asked Gail, "Can you
play this for us?" Well, as any-


body would know now, Gail
can play almost anything. The
two talented ladies hit it off
right from the start, and soon
Gail was feeling the call to
join Amelia Baptist and con-
tribute her talents to the
emergence of the music min-
istry there
Through the years, the
Helton and McCamy families
grew closer as the Helton and


McCamy kids came along and
grew up together in the fami-
ly tradition of youth choirs
and church activities. This
was the inspiration back in
1995 for Pam and Gall to form
Allegiance, a youth choir that
is comprised of middle and
high school kids from across
the county who want to praise

Author wins blue ribbon for artwork

A bon in the art divi-
sion of the Northeast Florida
Fair in Callahan for her paint-
ing of a colorful tall ship.
Malcolm's canvas is a re-
creation of a much larger
work created nearly 40 years
ago by her late mother,
Marie Harkins, of Erie, Pa. .
The original painting, a
favorite of her siblings,
hangs in the Harkins family
home.
According to Malcolm,
"The original needs to stay
where it is because my broth-
er, Bob Harkins, is a retired
Navy chief and now a tall
. ship sailor on Lake Erie and
around the world. Who is
more hitting to oversee our
treasure than Bobby?"
Wanting to have a piece of
her mother's art, Malcolm
took a hi-resolution photo-
graph on visit to the family
home. A Sunday afternoon
brought on the urge to paint
and the result is Malcolm's
version of her mother's tall
ship with the photo as her

family, part of her Rascally:
Readers program at
MarrthaBear.com.
It was easy to comman-
deer her husband, former '
mayor Bruce Malcolm, to
play the role of Captain
Patch, since he has experi-
ence reading to local chil-
dien at the Fernandina
Beach library over the
Christmas holidays. Every
captain needs a ship And so,
the tall ship in the painting
was christened the Rosy
S Freckle. Jane Marie Malcolm
is certain her mother would
not only enjoy the adventure
her painting is taking, but
would be deeply involved
with the concept of encourag-
ing reading since Marie
Harkins, besides being an
artist, was a teacher.
Jane Marie Malcolm is
the author of the historical
siUBMITTED suspense/romance series,
The Goodbye Lie, set in the
1880s Amelia Island. For .

SI. BMITTED
Pam Helton, right, and Gail McCamy formed a touring
youth choir called Allegiance in 1995 as their own chil-
dren reached the teen years- Allegiance has made annu-
al tours of singing and service. This poster was present-
ed to them by the kids in gratitude for the trip to New
York City in 2006.


MUSIC Continued fom 2B
SGod thoL ough lour-part
choral singing.
Allegiance has stung
througlioul Nnasau Counly
and has singing and mission
service tours as far west as
Colorado and as far north as
New'Yoik City.
"I would esilimre that Pamr
and:Gail lihave influenced sev-,
eral hundred individual young'
singers in the last 16.yeais, "i
through Allegiance," said Neil
Helton, senior pastor at
Amelia Baptist. This year
Allegiancewill present its,
Christmas music program on
Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 6:30
p.m. at Amelia Baptist
Church; the public is invited.
Amelia Baptist Church is
also presenting the 15th
anniversary edition of An
Evening in December. This is
the Christmas outreach to the
community known for its


excellence in music and
drama. It is a way for singers
and instrumentalists from
across the community to part-
ner with Pam and Gail in
telling the story of Christmas
in a new and compelling way
each year.
More than 75 musicians,
will par-ticipate in "The Heart
of Christmas," presented
without charge at 7 p.m. at
the church on Friday, Dec. 9
and Sunday, Dec. 11.
"After singing with Pam
and Gail since 1996, I can say
a few things for'certain," said
Allen Lennon, adult choir
president at Amelia Baptist.
"One is that Pam and Gail are
quick to give God the glory.
Their rehearsals are worship
experiences in themselves.
And it is a joy to watch Pam
and Gail work together in
remarkable unity. Good
friends do make great
music!"
