Sheriff: Johnson sought favors
A Nassau County Commissioner at
the center of a drunken spat March 9
at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island
asked Sheriff Tommy Seagraves to
bury her police report and break the
law, the sheriff said Tuesday.
Seagraves said Commission Chair
Stacy Johnson reached him on his
cell phone March 11 following the
incident and asked that he withhold
the report from the media and the

the rest of his life in prison.
Dusty Lee Bowman, 39, originally
from Cincinnati, Ohio, pleaded guilty
Thursday in Nassau County Circuit
Court to first-degree murder and was
sentenced to life in prison without
parole by Judge Robert Foster.
Bowman has been serving a life
sentence in Florida State Prison after
pleading no contest to the rape of a 72-
year-old St. Augustine woman and a
25-year concurrent sentence for the
sexual battiry of a Fernandina Beach

the Charlotte Correctional Institute in
Punta Gorda-last year. During the visit
Bowman gave a taped statement admit-
ting to the murder of Colborn "while
providing detailed information about
the crime that only the killer would
know," Hurley said.
Police said a former cellmate at
Apalachee Correctional Institute in
Sneads provided knowledge about the
case after Bowman showed him a let-

Department. The witness then con-

Assistant State Attorney Wes
White said Johnson also met with him
after the incident, but he declined to
comment on the nature of the meet-

emphatically" she did not ask him to

Johnson, 38, also called The Ritz

video footage that would verify her
claim that an acquaintance punched
her, but was told the video captured
what transpired outside the hotel bar
where the alleged assault took place.
Video footage of the fracas,
obtained by the News-Leader through
a public records request, shows a

A dolphin bursts out of the water on Easter Sunday at the Amelia River waterfront.
What does city want at airport:
'sleepy' or 'high-end gateway'?
.K 19 cpwt~wa
A Tuesday work session on the
future of the Fernandina Beach
Municipal Airport revealed it will
not be managed by a private firm
because of concerns by the Florida
Department of Transportation.
Instead, the city will look to hire
another airport manager upon the
retirement of Richard Johnson, who
currently holds that post.
It was also the consensus of city
commissioners that the airport is
under-utilized and under-perform-
ing and needs economic promotion
to attract more aviation-related and
other types of business.
Andrew Holesko, vice president
of consulting firm Passero
Associates, made a presentation on
the history and the city's vision for
the airport at the meeting held in
According to Holesko's presen-
tation, the city airport, at 1,100 acres,
was transferred by the federal gov-
ernment to the city in 1947, and its
first master plan was written in 1966.
Its first fixed-based operator was
signed up in 1970 and its first instru-
ment approach procedure was
allowed in 1997.
Although the airport at one time
had four runways, a runway was per-
manently closed in 2004, so now it
has three, Holesko noted. The
Fernandina Municipal Airport has
always been denoted by the FDOT
as a general aviation facility, which
means it focuses on business/cor-
porate flights, flight training and
recreational/sport operations. There
are no future plans for any aircraft
larger than the planes that use the
airport today, and it cannot accom-
modate scheduled air service for
numerous operational reasons,
Holesko said he believed there
was a need for an update of the air-
port's master plan and layout plan.
He also noted the FDOT had funding
available from 2013-17 for a welcome
center/operations building at the
airport, a project that was voted
down by commissioners several
years ago. The airport has been aver-
aging one FDOTgrant and one FAA
grant per year, Holesko said, but
falls behind other airports in the
development of businesses on its
"Coastal airports have a very log-
ical aviation use," Holesko said, and
as far as business development, the
Fernandina Airport falls behind St.
Augustine's, Flagler's and St.
Simons' airports. The airport should
be bringing in businesses that are
related to each other such as air-
plane maintenance, flight schools
and avionics, but the city should
encourage all types of businesses at
the airport, Holesko said.
"This is an excellent discussion of"
what the airport can and can't be,
but it's not a vision of the airport,"
said resident Paul Condit, who was
on the evaluation committee for an
airport management company. "I
would call it a sleepy little airport.
You may want it to stay that way ....
My vision of the airport is that it
becomes a high-end gateway (to
Fernandina Beach)," which could
attract many more visitors to the
Omni Amelia Island Plantation, The
Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and the
Judith Lane of the Sierra Club
said having more instrument
approaches could affect the safety of
the airport, and that she would like
to keep it a sleepy little operation
"because that's why people come

Lott, chosen by commissioners to take

he apparently is a candidate.
Commissioners voted in January'

provision he would not submit an appli-

executive as they leave the
comfort of their office to
examine the inner workings
of their companies in a roll-
Tonight, Chad Hallock,

In 1992, Hallock co-found-
ed Budget Blinds with his
brother and three close
friends with $5,000 in his
pocket. Today, the company
has grown to become the
largest window coverings
franchise in North America.
Although Hallock began
on the front lines, his years
behind the desk are sure to
make an impact on his per-
formance on the show.
"When I was approached
with the opportunity, I took it
without hesitation," he said.
"To be able to work with the
franchisees that have made
this company a success was
something I could not pass
up even though I haven't
taken part in an in-home con-
sultation or installed a blind in
quite some time!"
Budget Blinds franchis-
ees are excited about the
national exposure Under-
cover Boss will bring, and
about the valuable experi-
ences Hallock will undoubt-
"Not only is this a great
opportunity to help grow our
individual franchises, it's a
great opportunity for the
company as a whole," said'
Patty Villanueva of Budget
Blinds Amelia Island. "Being
on Undercover Boss will give
Chad valuable insight into
franchisee day to day opera-
tionsthat he is sure to incor-
porate into all future com-
munications and initiatives."

Interim City Manager
Dave lott said later the
FDOT informed him that it
was not comfortable or famil-
iar with municipal airports
being managed by private
firms. FDOT representatives
also had objections to a pri-
vate management company
because of concerns about
the city maintaining a cer-
tain level of control over state
grant money that pays for
airport upgrades. Lott also
said the FDOT wanted to
proceed "slowly and cau-
tiously" with a request for
proposals for a private man-
agement company, and was
asking to use its own legal
team to review any manage-
"That would have made
(finding a management com-
pany) a 9- to 12-month
process," Lott said. "We can't
afford that time delay." The
result, Lott said, was that the
city would continue with its
replacing Johnson with
another city employee when
Johnson retires May 1.
Johnson has been airport
manager since 2006.
"We will also try and
aggressively promote the air-
port from an economic
standpoint," Lott said, adding
that the city would look for a
company that specializes in
economic work for a mini-
mal retaining fee.
Lott noted the city would.
do the minimum amount of.
tree removal at the airport
while still maintaining air-
port safety. A separate work-
shop, to be scheduled with-

Commissioner Tim Poyn-
ter said at the meeting .that
an outside manager for the
airport doesn't really make
sense, and that "there are
very capable people out
there that we could hire," as
well as someone interested
in marketing airport opera-
"We should go out and
bring in a person who wants
to build a T-hangar or a

Doing island time in retirement
I was doing some5 yard work one afternoon
carly this week, enjoying my newlfund free-
donm from the workplace, when aln old class-
male of mine called to ask me a question about
our class rI'eunion later this monIh.
"I1 figred I'd probably better try to reach
you on your cell phone in case you'd already
retired," he said. "So, when do you retire?"
"My last day of work was Friday," I
answered, wiping dirt from my hands.
"So, what are you doing right now?" he
wanted to know.
"Yard work," I said.
There was a long and very pregnant pause
before my friend said anything else. I quickly
assured Donnie that I hadn't lost my ever-lov-
ing mind and that the clay before, I'd spent
nearly the whole day fishing, decided to do a
little yard work that day and that I planned to
go fishing again the next day. And then maybe
the day after, I might do some more yard work
or maybe work on my boat or something.
"What's the name of that motel down at
Main Beach catty-corner from the reunion
headquarters motel?" he wanted to know.
"There was too much merrymaking and cele-
brating going on at the headquarters place last
year and the walls were thin."
"I don't remember," I told him. "But if you'll
wait and let me finish what I'm doing here and
get my pork roast off the grill, I'll go check for

Joe Palmer stopped calling the days of
the week by their names and that the week is
now an abbreviated version of its former self.
My week now consists of yesterday, today,
tomorrow and the next day. An event a week
past or a week hence becomes one day last
week or one day next week. Anything further
back or further ahead is either ancient history
or too futuristic for me to concern myself over.
Donnie said he thought that was a great way
Seriously, by the time this makes print, I'll
be retired just one week and already I feel 10
years younger. Something about leaving the
stress of the workplace will do that. If it keeps
going like this, by the time I've been retired a
month, I'll feel like a kid again.
I had an appointment with my cardiologist
one morning this week and I decided to walk.
It was a beautiful morning and I need to shed
a few pounds anyway. When I told my doctor I
walked to his office, a distance of a couple of
miles or so, he was stoked. I thought he was
going to give me a gold star before I left his
office. I have to go back one day next week for
my stress test and I'll probably walk again.
Why? Because I can and I don't have to worry
about being in a hurry or running off to work
I didn't even get stressed out because my
doctor's waiting room was as full as Hactsfield
International Airport in Atlanta and he was
running behind schedule. I just sat there and
read and didn't pay attention to the time until
they called me. It was only then that I discov-
ered that I'd been there waiting over an hour.

decisions I've ever made. Now if the retire-

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Towing price gouging
A couple of weeks ago my sbn's
vehicle hydroplaned off the road
into a ditch full of brush. The police
on the scene asked which tow truck
company we would like for him to
call, so we had him call one out of
Ytulee. When I arrived on the scene
and asked the tow truck driver
what it was going to cost he quoted
me $475. Trust me you're not
half as surprised at this outrageous
price as Iwas. Shortly thereafter lie
changed it to $367. When asked if
they would take a check I was told
I ended up paying $150 towing
charge, $67 mileage charge, $50
extra truck fee (because they
brought two trucks), $1Q0 winch
out fee (which they never winch-
ed the car out, one of the tow
truck drivers backed it out of the
So this past week I have learned
a lot about towing fees that I want-
ed to share with the public. First
thing is that the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office has a maximum tow- "
ing rate sheet that all towing com-
panies have to adhere to. This
means that the towing companies
are all on a rotation call list with the
sheriff's office. So when you are in
a accident and the police ask you
which towing company you want
called, if you don't know one
then he will call one off that list and
right then that towing company can
automatically charge you $150,
which is double the price of what it
would have been if you had called
yourself. Next if they are going to
charge you for mileage; the rate is
,$6.50 per mile. They cannot
charge you for the first six hours of
storage and only $25 a day there-
after. They also charge you for
extra time at the scene $37.50 every
15 minutes after the initial cost per
This company is servicing ourt
community; if he has done this to me
he has probably done it to many of
you. So let's band together and stop
this price gouging. Take the time
to contact the sheriff's office and

neighborhood where the less fortunate lived.
We had a neighbor who was a single mother
with four children who was, to say the least,
destitute. They had nothing. My mother, who
barely had enough to feed her own family,
found out about the dire circumstances of our
neighbor. She cooked a dinner and with my
help carried it over. Now, 1, not being very per-
ceptive and rather self-absorbed at my tender
age, had no idea why a perfectly good dinner
was being given to the people next door. I soon
When we walked into our neighbor's
kitchen, which consisted of one lone stool
where the ,,I11 I sat, the children stood
around her looking rather grim. When they
saw my mother holding a plate brimming with
fried chicken, they all rushed her at once,
except the mother who was too weak to get up.
The plate was empty before I could blink.
That's when I realized what true hunger and
real poverty was, and the fact that it was next
door really hit home. What a valuable lesson
that was for me that day.
I can't imagine what it would have
been like to watch my children go hungry
thile way that poor woman did, or have no
place to sleep on a cold night. But many
parents see it every day. This plight is
real and it exists all around us. This is where
the Yulee Interfaith Dinner Coalition steps
in to help.
"The Yulee Interfaith Dinner Network
is a program that strives to serve the homeless
and needy in the Yulee area with a fresh
cooked, hot and l.1 .1ill,' meal to help alleviate
hunger and assist those who may not other-
wise get a nutritious meal or any meal at all
on a regular basis," says Robyn Andrews, presi-
dent of the Coalition for the Homeless of

Dinner from Aloa Stewart, president of the
Relief Society, the oldest women's organization
in the United States, and an auxiliary of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Laitter-day Saints.
The Relief Society was established in 1842 in
Nauvoo, Illinois "for the relief of the poor, the
destitute, the widow, and the orphan and for all
the exercise of all benevolent purposes,"
according to the March 1919 edition of The
Relief Society Magazine, Joy Huber, a teacher in
the Nassau County School system, and a
Relief Society member, found out about the
Interfaith Coalition through a fellow teacher
and Yulee Interfaith Dinner Board member,
Samuel Forbes. As a result, the Feriandina
Beach L)DS church has joined 100 other
churches, civic organizations, and individuals
in this compassionate service to the less fortu-
The Coalition for the Homeless of Nassau
County also runs in addition to the Yulee
Interfailih Dinner, Hope House dinners at the
Salvation Army Hope House in Fern'andina and
a shelter for the homeless. They also have a
program called "Soup Train" that delivers hot
soup, bread and a desert to about 30 home-
bound seniors. They work hand in hand with
Barnabas Center and the Council on Aging. It
is the hope of the coalition to expand to all
areas of the county with this program, includ-
ing Callahan and Hilliard.
The current co-coordinator, who has been
involved since its inception and played a major
role in its development along with Andrews
and Forbes, is Maryellen Collavo.
The Yulee IDN (Gracie's Kitchen) currently
serves an average of 45 dinners each night it is
open. located in the back of the old Yulee
Middle School, on the corner of US 17 North
and Pages Dairy Road, they serve every
Tuesday and Thursday from 5-7 p.m. In addi-
tion, they are open the first Monday, fifth
Monday and fifth Friday of the month. The
churches and civic groups "host" one night per
month, and the volunteers purchase, cook and
serve the food to the diners. "Thanks to the
extraordinary efforts and caring of the volun-
teers in the community, this program is possi-
ble," says Andrews. None of the money collect-
ed by the coalition goes to salary or overhead,
it all goes to the cause.

with intervals, such as the tri-

was to be avoided at every

the second lively and

also extremely soft in the first
and much louder in the sec-

of the "fp", or forte piano, in

is sung by approaching the

lights the many kinds of fami-
lies and relationships that
make our lives fun and full.
Singers will include talent from
early works of poet Friedrich
Holderlin (1770-1843), a con-
temporary of Beethoven's,
and was inspired by the poem
Hyperion's Schicksalslied. It
was fi-om this inspiration that
he began a choral setting of
the work. It is in two parts,
the first deals with the "bliss
of the gods and the second -
the sufferings of mankind
'plunging blinding into the
abyss.'" Instead of setting the
piece in two parts, Brahms
wrote a concluding section
which is purely orchestral as
he really didn't want to leave
it with a feeling of negativity.
After all I hetyurbulence of the
second section, the orchestral
closing is peaceful and leaves
the listener with a sense of
calm. The work was first pre-
miered in Karlsruhe on Oct.
Giacomo Puccini (1858-
1924), wrote the Messa di
Gloria as his ki .,ulil.iirn piece
from college. In this work one
hears much of what is to
come from Puccini in his later
development as an opera
composer. A true Gloria Mass
is one that only has the Kyrie
and Gloria sections. This is in
fact a fuIll mass and includes
all of the musical portions
one expects in a mass. It is a
concert piece and would not
be allowed in a liturgical set-
ting because of the repetition
of phrases.'Its premiere was
July 12, 1880 and was not per-
formed again until 1952 in
Chicago. A manuscript was
discovered by Fr. IDante Del
I i,, iii ,, iI 1951 and he
thought it was original score.

employed forms that hearken

expressive language of the
Romantic Period. In the
