News-Leader
Residents driving down Lime Street
will find a portion of the road nar-
rowed to one-lane, begin ningthis fall.
The detour will be in place until side-
walks are completed in late 2013 or
early 2014 to accommodate children
walking to the new Boys & Gifrls Club.
Nassau County Commissioners
agreed June 6 to one-lane a portion
of the road frpm South 13th to South
11th Street to coincide with the con-
struction of sidewalks Traffic would
be westbound only from South.11 th to;
South 13th.
The one-lane of that segment of
Lime Street would begin Aug 8 in
accordance with the start of the school
year, county Public Works Director
Scott Herring said The measure aims
o10 avoid driver confusion and accom-
modate the arrival of a new Boys &
Girls Club facility adjacent to
Southside Elementary.
The club, now under construction,
is scheduled to open in September.
"It's a temporary solution," said
Commissioner Danny Leeper, who
noted that the project had the support
of local agencies, including the
Ferpandina Beach Police Department
and the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office.
The fix. which aims to provide
pedestrians with safe passage until
the sidewalks are finished, would
entail a re-striping of Lime Street tu
establish separate paths for vehicles
and pedestrians, installation of posts to
cordon off those paths and a sign to
inform motorists of the change It
would cost an estimated 811,5'0.

Police:



Rape



report



false



...but

S GARRETT PELICAN,
News Leader
Fernandina Beach Police said
Thursday a mother of three who said
she was-raped inside a Main Beach
Park restroom has recanted her story.
The woman told the News-Leader, how-
ever, she has not.
"Detectives were able to discount
.the victim's story through investigative
means and the victim has since recant-
ed her statement, claiming that the
sexual assault at Main Beach never
occurred," Police ChiefJames Hurley
said in a press release
"The victim further advised that
she fabricated the story of sexual
assault. and she acknowledged hav-
ing deliberately cast blame at an inno-
cent individual she identified as a
homeless person."
Hurley said investigation into the
incident was continuing.
Asked about the press relea.;e
Thursday, the woman refuted it cale-
gorically and claimed police were at
her residence earlier in the day updat-
ing her on the progress of the investi-
gation.
"I did not recant my story," shi.
said, "They're following. a.totallH dii-
f ter'-nt lead and a rntally different >.u;-"
.petL, but I never recanted my rape at
all."
She said she never said for certain
her attacker was homeless, instead,
she suggested that he might have been
homeless based on his attire and the
smell of booze and body odor ema-
nating from his person. But she main-
tained the substance of the original
report was true.
, The newspaper is not identifying,
the woman at this time out of regard
fpr her privacy. It would identify her if
police ultimatelywereto arrest her for
making a false police report
Hurley-said later Thursday the
police recorded her statement in the
presence of a victim's advocate from
Jacksonville.
"Our conversations, with her and
the. recorded statement point to the
fact that she is suffering many chal-
lenges, and we are trying to help her
work through some of those," he said.
"She absolutely recanted her state-
ment that she was raped at the beach,"
Hurley said.,.
"She also fabricated ... afalse iden-
tification" of the homeless man she
identified as her assailant, he said.
Her description fit a local homeless
man known to police, and he is no
longer a suspect in the case.
The News-Leader first interviewed
the woman on Tuesday, after she called
the.newspaper. She was critical then of
what she called a flawed investigation
by local police. Police, she said then,
had violated her confidentiality,t ried to
discredit her and even accused her of
partaking in a twisted sexual fantasy
gone,awry.
All of this, she said,was partof the
department's aim to have tile case dis-
missed rather than tell the public the
truth that a woman can be raped in a
public restroom in broad daylight, as
she was. ,
"They seem more intent on making
me go away than the person who did
it," she said.

they did not contact her again
until June 5. Detective Tracey
Hamilton grilled her then for
about 15 minutes and accused
her of lying, alternating between
theories fhat she had partici-
pated in a fetish sex act gone
wrong or she was protecting an
abusive boyfriend, the woman
said.
She said Capt. David Bishop
later "basically told me there's
some doubts in my case. I still'
think that they don't believe me
even though I don't know why
they'd. have reason to doubt
me."
The woman said she identi-
fied her attacker in three sepa-
rate photograph lineups.
Although she wasn't 100 per-
cent certain the man was her
assailant, the resemblance was.
striking, she said. The victim
said her attacker stank of booze
and body odor and described
him as leaving a "scrufy" beard
and an "Indiana Jones" style hat.
'"I'll never forget him," she
said.
In the interview Tuesday,
the woman also, said she was
upet that police contacted a

she-wouldn't have reported her
attack had she known how
police would handle it "I debat--
ed whether I was even going to
report it," she said. "With hind-
sight being 20/20, Iwish I never
had. ... Murders don't get dis-
missed but 95 percent of rape
cases get dismissed. That needs
to change."
On Thursday, May 30, she
took her two youngest children,
ages 6 and 7, to the playground
Sat Main Beach to wait for their
older brother, 13, to get out of
school, she said. While she was
using the park's restroom
between Land 2 p.m., a man
attacked her, hitting her in the
face. "It hit my eye and split my
lip," she said. "I, was kind of
stun ned at that point." And then,
she said, he pushed her into a
stal where he bit her-breast-and
cursed her and raped her. ,
But then the door creaked,
the victim said, arid her attack-
er.fled. Asshe knelt on the floor
crying, her.daughter approach-
ed and said she saw a "boy in
the girl's bathroom." When'the
child asked why she was sob-
bing, she told her she had
dropped some money and not to


worry about it She grabbed her
children and left the park in a
hurry; in her haste, she forgot
to pick up her eldest from
school. "I just completely for-
got," she said.
If it had not been for her
daughter, she might have suf-
fered worse at the hands of her
attacker, the woman said. /
"If my daughter hadn't inter-
rupted, I'm sure it would have
gone a lot further," she said.
"He didn't try to disguise his
face at all. He might have
killed me."
The woman said she did riot
report the attack the same after-
noon because she was con-.
cerned for her children whom.
she did not want to leave alone
and whose grandparents were
put.of town, "I had no one here
to stay with my children if Avent
to the police station, and I was-
n't,gbing to bring my children
into that," she said.
She was initially reluctant to
report it. Nonetheless, .she
saved her underwear and put
them in a Ziploc bag as evi-
dence, the woman said.
"I was shocked, blown


away," she said. "I couldn't
believe something like this had
happened to me. I read stories
online of women ... and-bad stuff
that happened to them when
they reported it."
She considered not report-
ing the attack at all. It took a
friend of hers, a social worker,
pressing the issue "for the sake
of other women in the commu-
nity" to persuade her to report
the rape.
- After taking her children tq
school the next morning, May
31, she went to the Fernandina
Beach Police Department and
asked to speak with a female
officer. A female detective,
Hamiltoh, interviewed and pho-
tographed her, she said. The
detective recommended that
the victim seek help from a rape
victim's advocate 'out of
Jacksonville. The advocate, the
victim said, performed a rape
kit on her.
The woman said she-is not.
certain she'll return to the park.
While her children love it, she
said amidst tears, she doesn't
know how she would react
being back there.
."They love: that park," she
said. "I don'tknow. There would
have to be a lot of people
around. I,don't know I haven't
been, back there; I don't know
how it would affect me. There's

On Tuesday, the woman'
urged rape victims to be forth-

School vandals enroll



in diversion program


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Five Yulee High School sen-
iors who vandalized the
Fernandina Beach High School
baseball field will get the chance
to pay their community back,
and then some.
The vandals, all of whom are
18, will avoid felony charges of
grand theft and criminal mis-
chief if they complete a pre-trial
diversion program, Assistant
State Attorney Wes White said
Wednesday.
In other words, Assistant
State Attorney Laura Coggin
said, they'll be on probation
through the State Attorney's
Office.
'The seniors vandalized the
field on May 2, the night before
FBHS was. scheduled to host
Bolles in a state playoff game.
Damage from the vandalism,
which included slashed nets, a
dug' up pitcher's mound and
stolen bases, was estimated at
more than $2,500.
'They have.been referred to
the pre-trial intervention pro- .

gram, and they will have multi-
ple sanctions there including
community service and restitu-
tion," said Coggin, who noted
that the program is commonly
offered to first-time,offenders.
Coggin, who will supervise
their progress, said the vandals
have hearings scheduled for
July 10, but they're expected to
start paying back the commu-
nity in the meantime.
Jake Litecky, Justin Love,
Timothy Roszell, Jonathan
Shepherd hnd William Woods,
will serve "over 100 hours of
community service each," she
said.
Coggin said they would ful-
fill those hours' at The ARC, a
facility in. Yulee for the devel-

tion costs, she said. Each is
responsible for the sum of resti-
tution costs, or roughly 82.700,
owed to the school district '
"Most traditionally it's split
evenly," Coggin said, but the
five can divide the cbsts' how-
ever they choose, so long as the
total is paid. Should any of them
fail to pay their share, she noted.
the others would be on the hook
for it..
On top of community service
and restitution, each will write a
letter to the Nassau County
School Board apologizing to
the community. Coggin said.
All of them. she said. agreed to
the terms of the diversion in
writing after meeting with the
State Attorney's Office and
expressing remorse (or their

Coggin said They wouldn't

Should they fail to adhere to
their contracts, she said. their
cases would be rejected imme-
diately from diversion and she
would file charges and prose-
cute them before Circuit Judge
Robert Foster. That includes
any brushes with the law.

but we can always order above

Chief Jim Hurley said in May
the underlying cause behind
the vandalism was a rival y
between FBHS and VHS.
Roszell and Woods were YHS
baseball players; during his
freshman year, Roszell pitched
for FBHS in the state playoffs.

Seniors face high


summer power bills


Florida News Connection
TALLAHASSEE -The cost
of cooling Florida.homes is
expected to rise this summer,
with predicted record high
temperatures and a proposed
rate hike from one of the
state's major electricity sup-
pliers, Florida Power and
Light. The added cost will be
hard to afford for many
Floridians, particularly seniors,
explains AARP spokesman'
Greg Tanner.
S "They find themselves
being caught in the middle of
having to split paying utility
bills compared to maybe pay-
ing a prescription drug cover-
age or buying gr.ceiies "
Tanner says simple things
like turning off appliances
when they are not in use and
shutting off unnecessary light
can lead to big savings. 'He
adds that switching t, high-


efficiency light bulbs and set-
ting thermostats a few degrees
higher can also help. Even
washing clothes in cold water
can add up to savings.
In addition to affording the
high cost of cooling their
homes, Tanner says seniors
are also challenged by the fact
that many don't have the abil-
ity or expertise to perform
more difficult cost-cutting
-measures, like adding insula-
tion or resealing windows. He
says that's where family and
friends 'can step in to'help.
"Not only is it cost-cutting
savings, it potentially prevents
an injury from happening to
that individual. And for the
younger person, it feels good
to walk away knowing you
helped someone." ,

FRIDAY, JUNE 15.2012 NEWS News-Leader


Every week, auto dealers
get their copy of Automotive
News in the mail and it is an
interesting read. Automotive
News has no real competitor
and is our industry barome-
ter week to week. This is the
pulse of our industry and in
that I endeavor to keep read-
ers abreast of things, it is often
an inspiration for a column.
Two articles this week
chronicle the plants working
third shifts to keep up with
production and the resur-
gence of sub-prime financing.
One of the main reasons the
plants are so busy is that cred-
it availability is driving sales.
Credit, whether we like it or,
not, makes the world go
around. "Cash is King" ahd
"Money Talks" are not as rel-
evant today as when these
expressions were crafted.
Credit is a two-edged
sword. Used wisely, it is a
great asset. Abused, it has lin-
gering,bad effects. From coun-
tries to college students, cred-
it is often overused.
There is a window today
to use credit wisely for a grow-
ing number of auto prospects.
The average new car rate is
around.4.5 percent and. the
average used car rate is about
9 percent. Rates will vary wide-
ly and that is why it is good to
look at the averages. These
rates are at a historic low, just.
like mortgages. We hear "save
thousands" in so many auto
ads, and it is just not realistic
on the .competitive selling
price side of the equation. On-
the interest expense of a five,
or six year loan, saving thou-.
sands is absolutely true with
today's low rates compared to
inflationary, rates we saw years
ago: The window is open now

Those below 600 are going to
have to be the most prudent in
their choices. They are likely
to find bigger variances in
what they may be quoted. The
big thing to understand is
today's 12 percent rate for a
marginal buyer would have
been 16-18 percent a few years
ago. It is all relative. The mid-
dle of the road 600's scores
are where the lenders are buy-
ing more aggressively. They.
are getting approvals with bet-

the preferred rates well into

the spigot open wider than
others at certain times. New

take advantage of this timing.

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners have scheduled a work-
shop next week to consider a
new airport tree management
plan.
The proposed program to
cut or trim trees near the air-
port has been controversial
since its inception last summer
because of the number of trees
originally identified for removal
in neighborhoods near the air-
port.
The new-management plan
was intended to identify .how,
many trees should be removed-
or trimmed for airport safety
reasons and to establish a pro-
gram for .accomplishing that
now and in the:future.' .
The workshop is set for 5
p.m. Monday at City Hall, 204
AshSt. ,.
There also will be a-
Sustainable Fernandina Town
Hall from 6-8 p.m. Monday at'
Peck Center Auditorium, 516
South 10th. St
The, agenda for that meet-


ing includes an introduction to
Sustainable Fernandina, how
the citizens may participate,
"Brainstorming Sustainability
in Our Community," setting pri-
* orities for sustainability ideas
andhow to move forward.
Sustainable Fernandina is a
project the city began in 2010.
Sustainability is a concept in
which human activities meet
current needs without com-
promising the resources of
future generations, and are also
harmonious with the needs of
the natural world.
Goals for 2012 include cut-
ting city electric use by 10 per-
cent; maintaining clean and safe
beaches and waterways; and
focusing on alternative trans-
portation planning (such'as
bicycles and scooters).

as circuit judge


Suzanne Bass of Jacksonville
is seeking election for Circuit.
Court Judge, Group 34.
Bass said she would "bring
experience and accountability
to the bench. As judge, I will
uphold the law and rule with
fairness.
"Having represented hun-
dreds of clients in varying court-
rooms concerning all forms of
contentious disputes, I know
firsthand how essential it is for
a judge to be fair.
"Whenever a client perceives
the judge as fair, there is emo-
tional acceptance of the final
outcome," she said.
"However, the converse is
equally true. When a client per-
ceives the judge as inherently
unjust, there is rarely any clo-
sure.
"Being fair is not an attitude.
Ift ~'quired by adhering to a
personal code of honor, behav-
ing with discipline, delivering
on a principled work ethic and
knowing when to show com-
passion." "
Bass said over her decades-
long legal career she has exer-
cised the discipline, Work ethic
. and compassion needed to,
serve as judge. ,.

Fernandina Beach city officials recently
helped another business out-go completely
out of business that is, as last month the beach-
front Beach Club At Amelia on South Fletcher
Avenue closed its doors'for good despite being
able to pay the outrageous sum of $20,000 in
impact fees but unable to work out a deal with
the city to alleviate its parking situation
There are two business owners I am aware
of on the city commission so they should have
some empathy for other entrepreneurs and the
entire commission, it would seem, should be
willing to work to keep businesses open since a'
"closed" sign on the door doesn't generate one
cent of tax revenue much less create jobs for
locals. There are conflicting reports on this
entire issue but I overheard.a restaurant owner
telling a patroni recently that he was "lucky to
be in the county and not the city limits of
Fernandina Beach because of the city's anti-
business attitude, lengthy permitting process-
es, appalling fees, etc." Maybe new City
Manager Joe Gerrity will have a positive
impact since the current environment certainly
doesn't build a reputation 'that encourages
folks to set up shop here, just the opposite.

Of interest to island locals is the federal
Bureau of Labor Statistic's list of the nation's
10 most dangerous jobs, which has fishermen
at the top, saying commercial fishermen and
related fishing workers, whose workplace
includes heavy machinery, stormy weather and
slippery surfaces, were number one in death
rates with drowning the most common cause
of their demise. Loggers, policemen, roofers, .
pilots and ironworkers all made the list, but in


my opinion a gi uup that was.
conspicuously absent were

will be an 11,000-square-foot, eye-popping
Victorian style dwelling that no doubt will
become a landmark on that stretch of road.
* *
Flipping through the pages of Sunday news-
paper supplement Parade Magazine recently I


came upon a section where readers write in to
ask questions and after scanning them came to
the conclusion that there are a lot of sad people
out there who live totally empty existences
when'they resort to querying: "Does Martha
Stewart ever order takeout?" and "Are Nick
Cannon and Mariah Carey's twins showing any
musical talent yet?" and I didn't make this up.
These pitiful people's lives are as pointless as
the poor sap whose job is to respond to their
mindless drivel.

As kids many of us dreamed of growing up
to become jet pilots, policemen, actresses, fire-
fighters, baseball or football players, ballerinas
or other glamorous, exciting callings, but
instead we gradually morphed into account-
ants, bankers, nurses, carpenters, truck driv-
ers, salespeople and so on, with those child-
hood fantasies just fading memories. Not
Fernandina Beach's Steve Filkoff.
The spark of becoming a policeman was
nevdr extinguished in Steve and at an age
when most people are looking forward to eas-
ing into retirement, the then 59-year-old former
computer programmer applied and was accept-
.ed to the Florida Police Academy in Lake City
along with more than 40 other applicants, most
who were 35-40 years younger than him. Not
only did he graduate from the grueling six-
month-long ordeal of rigorous physical training
and demanding academic studies, but he was
third in the class and holds the distinction of
becoming the oldest grad in the academy's his-
tory.
Today Patrolman Filkoff can be found on
one his beats downtown, where he serves as


an unpaid voluntary auxiliary officer and a
reserve officer at other times for only $10.41
an hour, so he certainly isn't doing it for the
money. In'fact Chief of Police Jim Hurley, who
created the auxiliary corps and encouraged
him, says Filkoff puts in many, many unpaid
volunteer hours annually.
This, my friends,-is a dedicated public ser-
vant who achieved his childhood fantasy, and
despite his soon.to be 62 years of age, and his
friendly warm manner, is hot a person you
want to make angry. Oh, by the way, Steve's
wife is Mayor Arlene Filkoff, another job that
takes a lot of heat no matter what side of the
decision she comes out on, and we are indeed
lucky to have such a dedicated duo to serve us
so the next time you see Patrolman Filkoff
scoot by on his Segway, say "hello" and
"thanks."

How about a "Lemon Law" like the
one for new automobiles, for universities,
enabling graduates with degrees in art
history, African-American studies, philosophy,
sports ministry and puppetry arts (yes,
these actually exist) and other worthless
sheepskins designed to guarantee unemploy-
ment, to get a full refund if unable to secure a
job in their field of study within 12 months of
graduation, or better yet, make the school
liable for the gullible grad's entire student
loan? No taxpayer money involved here, it's all
between the naive, ideological future Occupy
Wall Streeters and the academic charlatans
who sold them these useless snake oil certifi-
cates.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
; ", Nws-Leader
City commissioners agreed
unanimously June 5 to pay a
$21,000 tax bill incurred by Amelia

tions in 2010, including a reduced
space at the .hangar, which was
being used for storage and main-
tenande of vehicles "
The;city received notice from
the Nassau County Tax Collector
in April that the taxes were only
paid up to 2009 According to a
city document, "The city had never
before received notice of these"

to pay ... (the) back taxes."'
City Attorney Timmi Bach rec-
ommended to commissioners that'

"One unique service we offer is transportation.
Taking a client to scheduled appointments, to visit
a friend or family member, shopping or out to
lunch. We also have staff available for out of town
trips and destinations that require overnight
stays." said Jamie. From time to time a senior, or
their family, may find minor home repairs are
needed, such as: Plumbing, painting, lawn care,
handyman work or simply outside clean up. BFCC
offers a management service with approved
contractors to ensure the highest quality work at
the best pricing for all their clients.

FRIDAY. JUNE 15, 2012 NEWS News-Leader


i SUBMIlTED
The new Boys & Girls Club on lime Street is scheduled to be completed in ,
September.


AL A. E o 0 New Boys& Girls Club near


The new Boys & Girls Club
in Fernandina Beach is back
on schedule for a September
completion date. Time lost due
to the unforeseen need to
replace four feet of the dirt
under the foundations has
been made up under the stper-
vision of Auld & White
Cdnstructors, Inc the general
contractor
The project began in 2007
when, shortly after the Boys &
Girls Clubs of Nassau County
Foundation made possible the
opening of the new Miller
Freedom Center Club in
Nassauville, the Fernandina
Beach Housing Authority was
inspired by'the success of that
program and stepped forward
to dedicate a sparsely-used
community center building at
Indigo and 11th streets to serve
as a Boys & Girls Club. The
foundation, which funds club
operations, hired staff and
quickly had 30 kids regularly
attending after-school programs
in cramped quarters there
By 2010 the club was burst-
ing at the seams with 75 young
people as member's.
The foundation board rec-
ognized that a larger, better
club facility was essential and
authorized design and initiated
a capital -anpdign to fund
building it.
* Bill Gower, foundation pres-
idenrt, and several foundation


board members worked with
Nassau County Schools
Superintendent John Ruis to
use school property as a site
for the new club In 2011 the
Nassau County School Board
approved a .S1-dollar-a-year
lease for a site adjacent to
Southside Elementary School.
facing Lime Street between
1 th and 13th streets.
The design of the new facil-
iry was completed by Miranda
Architects, the initial estirnat-
- ed cost established at Sl.8 mil-
lion and ground was broken in
December.
The design included a cov-
ered, open-sided athletic facili-
ty for volleyball and basketball.
It was agreed that students at
Southside Elementary, who had
no such facility at the school,
could use this part of the new
facility each school day until 2
p.m.
Construction began in
January bat the next month it
was discovered that the soil
under the 'footprint" of the new
club was filled with roots and
had to be replaced Some of the
soil was segregated from the
bad and used to make a new
field for playing flag football or
soccer. This excavation and fill
job was primarily responsible*
for the capital cost increase to
$2 million .
A problem with the Lime
Street location was no side-


walks. The estimated cost of
new sidewalks along Lime
Street, 11th and 13th streets
was substantial, but Mike
Pikula, a volunteer with expert-
ise in grant writing, led ateam
of county citizens who devel-
oped a successful application
for a grant from the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT) to Nassau County for
a "safe sidewalks to school"
project around the whole block
surrounding Southside
Elementary School and the new
club site Then agreement to
the sidewalk installation was
necessary from Fernandina
City Engineering and the
County Planping Department,
in conjunction with FDOT
FDOT will not complete
sidewalk construction until
sometime in 2013 so it has been
agreed to change Lime Street
between 11th and 13th to one-
way. one-lane westbound and
reserve the other lane for
pedestrians only. The change
will be implemented in August
and Urne Street will return to
two-way traffic when the new
sidewalks are complete. :.-.,

to allow the old club, once the

in the blues. She's opened for the'
Rolling Stones. headlined at the
Chicago Blues Festival and numer-
ous festivals around the world,
scored critics' choice awards on
both sides'of the Atlantic and shared
the stage with such luminaries as
Buddy Guy, B B. King, Taj Mahal
and John Mayer. Heir to the rich tra-
dition of soul-drenched divas like
Ruth Brown. Etta James and Koko
Taylor, Copeland's shot at the even-
tual title of Queen of the Blues is
pretty clear By some standards, she

Born in Harlem, N Y.,. in 1979,
Copeland came to her singing
career slowly. Her father, the late
Texas.blues guitar le gend Johnny
Clyde Copeland, recognized his'
daughter's talent early on. He
always encouraged her to sing at
home, and even brought her on
stage to sing at Harlem's famed
Cotton Club when she was just
eight. At the time, Shemekia's
embarrassment outweighed her
desire to sing But when she was 15
and her father's health began to fail.
her outlook changed "It was like-a
switch went off in my head. and I
wanted to sing." she says "It
became a want and a need I had to

open to her. While she will always remain loyal
to her blues roots, Never Going Back takes a
more forward view of the blues, and in so
doing points her music and her career in a new
direction.
"I've had success in my career, and I'm
happy with that," she says. "But that doesn't
mean I don't want to continue to grow. In order
for an artist to grow and for a genre to grow -
you have to do new things. I'm extremely'
proud to say I'm a blues singer, but that doesn't
mean that's the only-thing I'm capable of
singing, or that's the only style of music I'm
capable of making."
' She adds: "I want to keep growing. My
main goal when I started this was that I was'
going to do something different with this
music, so that this music could evolve and
grow. I got that idea from my father. He didn't
do the typical one-four-five blues. He went to
Af-ica and worked with musicians there. He
was one of the first blues artists to do that. I
want to be the same way. I want to be innova-
tive with the blues."
Roger "Hurricane" Wilson
The Amelia Island Blues Festival is bring-
ing noted blues guitarist Roger "Hurricane" '
Wilson back to Main Beach; and this time he
will act as master of ceremonies for the entire
festival weekend. Wilson's storied musical
career provides him with a unique perspective
and practical insight into the blues. The great
bluesmari Hubert Sumlin said of Wilson, "this
boy knows what he's doing," and guitar innova-
tor Les Paul remarked that he "plays some
great blues."
In addition, Wilson will bring his much-her-
alded "Blues in School" program to the 2012

School, led by music teacher Johnnie
Robinson, will again open the Saturday morn-
ing blues festival at Main Beach and will be
joined by Wilson for at least three classic blues
songs, all designed to help keep the blues alive
by introducing the genre to the next genera-
tion of musicians.
Taking his famous moniker from Hurricane
Donna, which devastated his' New Jersey
hometown in 1960, as well as from his raucous
blues renditions, Wilson has played with many
of the greats, including B.B. King, Buddy.Guy,
Little Milton, John Mayall and Savoy Brown, to
name just a few.
His latest CD release is the much anticipat-
ed live recording performed with the .
Shufflejunkies at the 2011 Amelia Island Blues
Festival. Also in the works, a compilation of
recordings with the legendary Willie "Big
Eyes" Smith, due for release this summer.
For those that wish to become more famil-
iar with Wilson's music, check out his first two
CDs for Hottrax Records, "Hurricane Blues,"
released in 1994, and "Live from the Eye of.the
Storm," released in 1996. Both received airplay
on well over 100 stations across the U.S. In,
1997 Wilson decided that it was time to step up
to the next level, forming his own record com-.
pany, Blue Storm Records. This venture gave
rise to the third CD, The Business of The
Blues. The fourth CD is called Live at the
Stanhope House, recorded at that legendary
blues club in New Jersey. A fifth effort, all solo
acoustic, Pastime, has also received much criti-
cal acclaim and The Ohio Connection was
released in 2004. Visit roger@hurricanewil-
son.com.
In addition to playing 250 to 300 nights a
year, Wilson also produced and hosted his own,
syndicated radio show on nearly 100 stations
around the country.

an outbound exchange student study-
ing in Norway. Walters, who was spon-
sored for the Rotary Youth Exchange

Kristiansand and later in Oslo. While
there he not only attended high school
where he learned to speak the lan-

downhill and cross-country skiing as
well as surfing, which he admitted was
an icy experience. He, along with a
group of other exchange students from

closed by saying the Rotary exchange

FRIDAY. JUNE 15. 2012 News-Leader


Students


tour the


cosmos from


classroom
On Tuesday morning, May 29, Yulee
Elementary School went to the stars!
Science First, a Yulee manufacturer of the
.world's first portable planetarium, demon-
strated the mystery of the heavens to the
winners of the school's science fair.
Thirty students from grades three
through five went on a brief tour of the
cosmos. They learned how to use constel-
lations to navigate, how eclipses work and
how to recognize the features of Mars and
Jupiter. They even learned a little about
the complex orbital dynamics that keep
Saturn's rings stable. They left the Earth
and came back all in one convenient, half-
hour lesson.
"I was greatly impressed with the
. knowledge of some of the students," says
Nathaniel Bell, marketing director at
Science First. "Some of them knew more
about the sky than many adults I've met.
One was able to bring astronomy and his-
tory together he gave a brief talk about
how important Ursa Minor was to the
Underground Railroad. It's a correlation. I
would be happy to hear from an adult; out
of a fourth grader, it was a marvel."
The demonstration was coordinated by
Joy Huber, third grade teacher and future
chair of the Science Committee at Yulee
Elementary School. Huber intends to
invite Starlab back to the school. after the
summer break: She would like to make
the experience available to a wider range
of students, because, as she informed
Helmut Albrecht, sales manager for
Science First, she heard "a lot of wows"
from the students that participated.
The Staflab portable planetarium is
manufactured at the company's facility in
the Nassau Tradeplex in Yulee and sells to
schools, school districts and science
museums all over the world. The immer-
sive experience was conducted by Bell
and Albrecht.




Drive is on for

school supplies
The Coalition for the Reduction/
Elimination of Ethnic Disparities in
Health (CREED) is asking the community
to to help provide school supplies for this

kindergarten through 12th grade who are
making their initial entry into a Florida
school. For students transferring to a
Florida school from another state, a physi-
cal completed within one year is accept-
able if completed on a form comparable to
Florida's standardized School Exam form
(DH3040). CREED will also provide
sports physical.

Wide rule notebook paper and com-
positions books
College rule notebook paper and -
compositions books
Pens and pencils

to over a 225 children.
All supplies are to be taken to the

Kids show they can, collect 4,000 pounds of food


The One Can food drive for the
2012 school year concluded at the
end of May. The students and staff
of Southside Elementary and
Emma Love Elementary collected
over 4,000 pounds of canned food
to help Barnabas Center: meet the
needs of families in I',;iffli
County.
The One Can program has
become a full-on community effort
with principals Eric Larsen and


'Cindy Olsen working with their
staff, Debbie McCook and
Christie Miklas each month to
facilitate participation. Teachers
encouraged their students each
month to give to the community
with one can of food.
Olsen and Maria Murphy.,
designed the program three years
ago after watching other cormmu-
nity pantry programs .ise stl.a;im
over the course of the school year.


The program has brought .
approximately 15;000 pounds
of food to the community in the
last three years one can at a
time.
SMurphy has designed starter
materials and is available to show,
other ,-chools ho% to create One
Can drives on their own campus-
es. "What I love about One Can is
its simplicity. Every person can
give, no matter what their eco-


nomic situation. This helps the
community in a concrete way, by
providing needed food, but it
also teaches our children that
when we work together, we can
make great change. It runs
snioothly because uf all the,
' school and family support The
peopl- in Fernandina can-r about
each other and it shows evei y
month the cans are collected for
One Can."


Musicians enter fraternity
Sixteen local piano students became members of the National Fraternity of Student Musicians by successfully performing ata
Guild Audition in Jacksonville at the beginning of May. Each student played a set number of memorized pieces for a judge from the
National Guild of Piano Teachers. Special recognition goes to Sarah Beth Uindbom who performed 10 memorized pieces, earning a
National level of membership, and Bonnie Miller, above right with teacher Karla Jennings, who earned a High School Diploma in
