County adds jobs to lure jobs to Nassau


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader


Steve Rieck has pushed for a larg-
er budget to help the "woefully under-
resourced" county Economic
Development Board bring jobs to
Nassau County. His persistence paid
off Monday when Nassau County
Commissioners approved a funding
boost that would help provide at least
two new jobs in Rieck's office:
As the organization's executive
director, Rieck's job entaih drumming

up jobs in the county by marketing
the area to companies looking to relo-
cate their operations here. It has just
launched a major initiative, Nassau
Tomorrow, intended to bring thou-
sands of new jobs here.
Following a brief discussion, coun-
ty commissioners unanimously
approved a measure to spend $150,000
funding the nonprofit organization, a
$37,500 increase from it s ciintribuiioni
in 2012. Rieck is seeking a five-year
commitment for that funding from the
county, along with similar commit-


ments from municipalities and private
investors.
But \, Commissioner Barry
Holloway, who made the motion to
approve the funding, told Rieck prior
to the vote that he wanted to start see-
ing some results and "ribbon-cutting


ceremonies" to show for it.
"We need to start putting some
score on the board here soon,"
Holloway said as he and commission-
ers reviewed the proposed budget.
Trying to schedule those cere-
. monies, Rieck told commissioners, is


what gets him up early every morning.
With the extra cash, the Economic
Development Board will generate jobs
locally by focusing on five areas mar-
keting, business retention and work-
force development, government
affairs, public relations and investor
relations through the Nassau
Tomorrow campaign, he said.
Campaign literature says the eco-
nomic development office projects to

After 25 years,

Pompeofinito
HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader

Italian cuisine to
After 25 years of bringing
Fernandina Beach, Mario
Pompeo Manganaro has
decided to retire.
"Everything comes to an end,
but I am proud that I sold my busi-
ness, I did not shut down," says
MaIngnaru. "I gul Mut b..kJi'.,e I
wanted to, not because I iad to."
Born in Naples, Italy,
Manganaro's culinary career began
at age 12 when he quit school and
got a job at a restaurant. For 12
years, he learned the food service
industry from the ground up, with
an emphasis on perfecting the
preparation of Italian cuisine.
In 1974 his brother sponsored
him and he emigrated to Allentown,
Pa. With little English, his first job
in the states was working at a pizza
restaurant with his brother.
Manganaro opened his first solo
restaurant in 1976 near Scranton,
Pa. During this time he took the
oath of citizenship wearing the
black pants and white shirt fre-
quently recognized as a culinary
uniform.
He met and married his wife,
Rose Ann, in 1979. Soon the couple
started a family and life seemed
complete.
But by 1986, he was weary of the
cold and snow of northern winters.
"Iwas used to the sunshine in
Naples, you see, and this was too
cold!"
Selling the restaurant to his
brother, Manganaro bought a motor
home and took his family south to
the Sunshine State.
After a seven-week odyssey that
included Key West, Miami and St.
Augustine, the family landed in
Fernandina Beach and learned it
was being touted as an up and com-
ing location, recalls Manganaro.
He opened a restaurant in the
Island Walk shopping center in
1987, moving to a Centre Street
location in 1990.
Pompeo's catered to locals and
tourists in search of authentic
Italian cuisine.
The 62-item menu included a
variety of pasta dishes as well as
chicken., seafood, beef and veal. A
favorite was Manganaro's tasty thin
crust pizza, baked in a special brick
oven.
One of the most popular dishes
Manganaro prepared for his guests

equipped only with culinary skills and went on to run Pompeo's
restaurant in Fernandina Beach for 25 years.


was Zuppa di Pesce, a seafood dish
with clams, calamari (squid),
shrimp and grouper.
"I made it as authentic as it could
be. And when people came from
New York, Chicago or Atlanta, they
know authentic and they always like
my food," said the chef.
Over the years, the restaurant
expanded to include a front court-
yard for outdoor dining, and
Manganaro often emerged from the
kitchen to entertain diners with his
m gniific l viice
'I did mrosly all the cooking in
the restaurant and I think that


because I stay on top of everything,
I am there to overlook everything,
this is why I survive 25 years. I have
people who ate with me 25 years.
We had a lot of good times."
There were also some
heartaches, he adds, especially
when he received calls from the
adult children of regulars with
whom he had become close to say
Pompeo's was their pircnl'l favorite
restaurant and they wanted to come
there after the funeral.

election



in ity
There will not be a runoff election
for a city commission seat this fall as
one candidate dropped out this week.
Former county commissioner Jim
B. Higginbotham withdrew his candi-
dacy in a letter to the city on Monday,
in time to have his name removed from
the ballot.
That means Commissioner Tim
Poynter will face Ed Boner for his seat
and John Campbell Elwell and Pat
Kelley Gass will compete for retiring
Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch's seat
The general election is scheduled
for Nov. 6. A runoff election would
have taken place Dec. 11 if no candi-
date obtains a majority in the first elec-
tion. With only two candidates for each
seat, that means one will get a major-
ity.
The new commission will take
office on Dec. 18.

After so many years,

POMPEO
Continued from 1A
'them so much."
Manganaro derived an
enormous amount of enjoy-
ment from walking among
the diners, greeting locals,
visitors and celebrities alike
with jovial pleasure. Among
the famous faces who visit-
ed the restaurant were for-
mer Jaguars owners Wayne
and Delores Weaver, tennis
star Gabriela Sabatini, the
late Davy Jones of the
Monkees, Miami Dolphins
coach Don Shula and
sportscaster Brent
Musberger.
When actor Robert
Loggia of "Scarface" and
"The Sopranos" fame dirred
at the restaurant, he joined
the owner in some Italian
songs.
"We sang together
'Mama' and 'Come Back to
Sorrento,'" Manganaro
recalled with a smile.
Local resident and
Olympic skating star
Barbara Scott King and her
husband were frequent visi-
tors.
They came every
Sunday to the restaurant
They are such lovely people
and I will miss them terri-
ble."
Twenty-five years of
long hours on his feet have
earned him a well-deserved
rest, but the retiring chef
says he'll miss the people a
great deaL .
"After so many years, ,
you know, they become like
a family," Manganaro said
wistfully. "I am really, really
sorry for the people that
are going to miss me, too.
Every time I think about it,
I have tears in my heart"
A new restaurant is slat-
ed to take over the space
occupied by Pompeo's and
Manganaro said he hopes
his former clients will give
them a chance.
"I hope he makes them
happy the way I did."
The congenial grandfa-
ther of three plans to spend
more time with his wife,
Rose, qnid their children
Ashley, Angela and Mario,
and go for leisurely visits to
family in Italy and
Pennsylvania.

"We offer service to anyone
in need regardless of their reli-
gious beliefs, and we do not
screen recipients to determine
eligibility. We believe God has
called us to meet the needs,
.not qualify the needs," said
Journey Church Outreach
Pastor Jonathan Mock of
Authentic Impact.
The.goal of the group is "to
express the irresistible love of
Jesus Christ to those who
receive their help."
"4 we only meet the physi-
cal needs without meeting
their greatest spiritual need,
we have missed what God has
called us to do," said Mock.
Authentic Impact has been
helping local families in need
since 2008. An average of about
7,000 pounds of food per week
is distributed from 10 a.m. to
noon on Tuesdays and
Thursday, and every third
Saturday behind the Loop
restaurant off Sadler Road.
The food is picked up in a
donated refrigerated truck
from local stores that partner
with thegroup and distributed
to families and/or individuals
that same day.
"Our outreach center pro-
vides a safe, comfortable envi-

ronment for recipients to
receive their food," said Mock.
"As they come, they are treat-
ed with dignity and respect."
All the volunteers are eager
to build relationships and
establish a sense of communi-
ty through their outreach.
Volunteer Vee Potter said,
"Being a part of the food min-
istry of Authentic Impact at
The Journey Church has given
me a chance to help feed the
people of this community,
while showing them the love of
Jesus Christ. Seeing their grat-
itude and their growing sense
of community has truly been a
blessing from God."
In addition to food distri-
bution, the group hosts an
annual turkey shoot, golf tour-
nament, Fourth of July family
day at Main Beach, and offers
holiday meal distribution at
lThanksgiving.

JOBS Continued from 1A
keting and 30 percent on busi-
ness retention. The budget
numbers show the bulk of the
funding, 63 percent, would go
to staff expenses.
For fiscal year 2012-13, the
NCEDB has proposed a budg-
et of $400,000, which includes,
$185,000 it plans to raise from
private investors and contribu-
tions from the municipalities of
Fernandina Beach, Callahan
and,Hilliard. Fernandina Beach
has committed $25,000 to the
effort.
"You will find inside that
prospectus a sheet of paper that
gives you the detailed dollar
breakdown of how we intend
to spend the budget that would
be created by your actions
under the budget request,"
Rieck told county commission-
ers.
The office would spend
nearly $252,000 on staff, accord-
ing to the budget, including
$211,000 for salaries and
$21,000 set aside for perform-
ance bonuses. The document
did not specify individual
salaries,
The organization ,allocated
$125,600 for salaries and no
money for performance bonus-
es in 2011-12 and $120,000 for
salaries in 2010-11.
Rieck said via email
Wednesday that the proposed
personnel expense increases
were for salaries and taxes for
four full-time employees, not
two as in years past.
"NCEDB does not provide
insurance benefits, retirement,
401(k), merit increases or
longevity increases to any staff
(except that I receive a month-
ly stipend of $200 to cover a
portion of the premium for
health insurance coverage that
is provided through my wife's
policy)," Rieck wrote. The per-
formance bonus is a tool that


the board intends to use to keep
staff motivated for peak per-
formance over the next five
years."
Rieck's pay was $85,000 in
2011, $80,000 in 2010 and
$74,000 in 2009, according to
the organization's tax filings.
Rieck wrote a letter to the
editor in the Aug. 22 News-
Leader stating that his "woeful-
ly under-resourced" office is
poised to help the county and
its municipalities "grow smarter
in the future than in the past
and become less dependent
upon residential taxpayers to
fund government services."
Under Rieck's leadership,
the office recruited aerospace
manufacturer ALM Techtiolo-
gies, Inc. to the county, paved
the way for development of
industrial properties and
created an Economic
Development Grant Incentive
program designed to. attract
businesses.
Nassau Tomorrow aims to
create 3,800 jobs during the
next five years by drawing busi-
nesses to the county through its
six job creation areas, including
the Rayonier-owned Crawford
Diamond Industrial Park,
which is in the process of
receiving a "megasite certifi-
cation" that would attract indus-
trial manufacturers to the prop-
erty.
Local officials are anxious
for water and sewer services
to be provided to the Crawford
Diamond, an 1,800-acre pro-
posed industrial park owned by
Rayonier's real estate branch,
TerraPointe Services, south-
west of Callahan. The site is
being promoted as an econom-
ic hub given its intersection of
two class 1 railroads, two inter-
state highways, four deepwa-
ter ports, the international air-.
port and the Jacksonville
metropolitan area.

Florida consumers steady


University ofFlorida
GAINESVILLE Florida's
August consumer confidence
level Was unchanged since July,
according to a monthly
University of Florida survey.
"Floridians seem somewhat
resilient in the face of the eco-
nomic challenges facing the
U.S. and Florida this coming
January," said Chris McCarty,
director of UF's Survey
Research Center in thd Bureau
of Economic and Business
Research. The new year could
bring an end to federal tax cuts
and automatic spending cuts
unless the Congress and the
president take action.
Of the five components
researchers use to assess the
economic mood of Floridians,
two showed a boost in confi-
dence. Respondents' faith in
U.S. economic conditions over
the coming year and their opti-
mism about'the national econ-
omy over the next five years
went up.
Two other components,
however, revealed a drop in
confidence. Floridians' overall
perception that now is a good
time to buy a big-ticket item,
such as an automobile or com-
puter, declined, as did their per-


ception that they are better off
financially today than they
were a year ago. Meanwhile,
their expectations that personal
finances will improve a year
from now stayed' the same as
July.
Floridians are reasonably
optimistic despite possible eco-
nomic setbacks nationwide that
could occur if a set of expiring
tax breaks and automatic
spending cuts at the federal
level happen at the same time,
McCarty said.
In fact, the UF survey indi-
cates that both the overall
index and several of the com-
ponents used in the survey are
near post-recession highs.
"It appears that, at least for
the month of August, Floridi-
ans are either not aware of the
problem or they are assuming
Congress will somehow fix it,"
McCarty said. "This is true for
young and old, and lower- and
higher-income households."
A steady stream of good
economic news may be con-
tributing to the sustained opti-
mism. For instance, although
the median housing price drop-
ped $3,OOQ from the. previous
month to $148,000, it still is
substantially higher than a year
ago. "Although these prices


are 40 percent lower than their
peak value in 2006, prices are
slowly moving up instead of
down," McCarty said.
The stock market also
could be boosting confidence
as it continues to hold onto
recent gains with the Dow still
up more than 5 percent for the
year. Florida's unemployment
rate edged up in July by two-
tlnilib of a percent to 8.8, but
employment gains have been
more broadly based across the
job market than previously,
McCarty said. Though gas
prices have risen since July,
they are still 30 cents below
their recent high of $3.85 for a
gallon of regular gasoline.
"While consumers are opti-
mistic compared to other post-
recession months, they are still
pessimistic when compared to
the entire history of the index,"
McCarty said.
"Our expectation is that
consumer confidence will go a
bit lower as the election
approaches," said McCarty. "A
critical point will be the presi-
dential debates-beginning in
October. This may be the first
opportunity for Floridians to
hear how the financial prob-
lems coming in January may
. be addressed."


My daughter the teacher


Wednesday, Aug. 22 was
the clay youngsters in Miss
Keffer's second-grade class
showed up in Greer, S.C.
Twenty-six wide-eyed
seven-year-olds ready to give
this young teacher a chal-
ldnge,
l'wenty of the parents and
students had arrived Monday
in four 20-minute waves to
meet Katie and get oriented.
Twenty of 26 was a good per-
centage turnout, I thought,
Many of the kids that evening
had the cards Katie sent in
advance to introduce herself.
They were addressed to the
kids on the advice of another
teacher, not knowing the
parental dynamics of each
household. Monday night
went well, with a number of
parents pledging to help and
support any corrections she
may need to make to their
child's behavior.
Day one of school was an
education for the new teacher.
Several seating assignment
changes were needed and
instant "opportunity" children
presented themselves. She
made her daily call to my wife
Hollie and said, "This is going
to be a bit more than I real-
ized."
Day two brought a much
more promising call and each
day since has been much bet-
ter. It turns out they are going
to create another second-


grade class
and Katie
will have to
surrender
five kids ofa
group she is
alreadyu-
attached to.
Katie is iny
the master's
REFFER'S program at
CORNER Furman Uni-
yersity,
where she
RickKefer earned her
undergradu-
ate degree earlier this year.
She attended summer school,
landed a teaching job and will
attend anther summer ses-goa
sion to complete her master's,
in early childhood develop-
ment. That is a mouthfulto
say.
She can then teach kinder-
garten, which is her goal
Prior to getting a master's,
she cannot teach any grade
below second. These Furman
kids had to respond to online
openings in Greenville or
Spartanburg schools, be
called for an. interview and
compete for the position.
The university didn't
arrange for any openings to
come their way. This makes
us proud parents that Katie,
landed a position and is off
and running. She has wanted
to teach little ones as a career
since she was around 15. It is


a blessing to have that direc-
tion at an early age.
Some suggested she was
essentially overqualified to be
a teacher and should set her
sights on other careers. I took'
exception to the thought that
anything could be more valu-
able than sharing her abilities
with young minds. She is real-
itic that her rewards won't be
largely economic. However,
the satisfaction of contributing
to the early academic
progress of youngsters while
the learning window is open
wide is beyond dollars and
cents. Who can't remember
an elementary school teacher
that made a difference in their
.lives?
The statistic for a teaching
career that I remember from
freshman orientation was that
50 percent of teachers leave
the profession within five
years. Furman professes to
have a much'better track
record with their graduates.
We hope Katie will find ample
rewards in the teaching
profession and brighten lives
like she has certainly bright-
ened ours for the last21
years.
Have a good week.

ates Rick Keffer Dodge Chrysler

Motorists beware

Labor Day crackdown


law enforcement agencies
in North Florida and Georgia
committed to work together
over the Labor Day weekend
to encourage sale driving and
help save lives. They joined
thousands of law enforcement
and highway safety agencies
across the nation taking part in'
the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled
Over" crackdown on impaired
driving, which runs through
the I labor Day holiday.
"Every year .and every hol-
iday weekend, we continue to
see far too many people suffer
"debilitating injuries and loss
of life as a result of impaired
driving," said Andrew John-
son, Florida law enforcement
liaison representative for the
Drive Sober or Get Pulled
Over canipaign. "This careless
disregard for human lives
must stop, which is why Flori-
da and Alabama's law enforce-
ment agencies will be arrest-
ing impaired drivers wherever
and whenever they find them
during the Labor Day holiday."
During today's 21st annual
"Hands Across the Border"
event, law enforcement agen-
cies from both states pledged
to be vigilant in their enforce-
ment efforts this holiday
weekend. In an effort to
reduce casualties, law enforce-:
ment is taking a "no tolerance"
policy toward drivers who are
caught impaired, unbuckled
or speeding.
"It's clear that too many
people still don't understand
that impaired driving is no
accident nor is it a victim-
less crime," said Johnson. "So-.
our message to motorists is
simple and unwavering: if you
get caught driving while
impaired, you will be arrest-
ed. No exceptions."
Statewide in 2011 Florida
experienced 2,398 traffic fatal-
ities.
"Make no mistake. Our
message is simple. No matter
what you drive a passenger
car, pickup, sport utility vehi-
cle or motorcycle- if we catch
you driving impaired, we will
arrest you. No exceptions. No
excuses," said Major Anthony
Allen, Florida Highwad Patrol.
"We will be out in force con-
ducting sobriety checkpoints
and saturation patrols to get


drunk drivers off the road."
"If you are planning to
drink alcohol with friends, des-
ignate a sober driver before
going out, and give that person
your keys," said Johnson. "If
you're impaired, call a taxi, use
-mass transit or call a sober
.friend or family member I
promise, they'd rather get a
call to come pick you up than
a call saying that you've been
killed."
Law enforcement repre-
sentatives from Florida and
Georgia close to the states'
border signify their collabo-
rative efforts before beginning
their respective enforcement
endeavors. Through the com-
bined efforts of law enfor-
cement and other highway
safety partners, the "Hands
Across the Border" campaign
continues to help save lives
through education, communi-
ty awareness and enforce-
ment.
The "Hands Across the
Border" events were created
when safety advocates from
across the southeast met to
find ways to focus on the
importance of using occupant
protection devices. In 1991,
these advocates came togeth-
er and created the first "Hands
Across the Border" event .in
the Jacksonville and Valdosta,
Ga., areas. In 1993, the state of
Alabama joined the efforts.
Today, states across the coun-
try participate in similar annu-
al events.

Main Beach BBQ observations: Recent
island resident Rick Scott (no, not the gover-

were two of the lucky 200 to snag a $10
"People's Choice" wristband providing us an'
opportunity to sample the competitors' entries
during last weekend's Great Southern Tailgate
Cook-Off, and if we had been official judges
our votes would have gone to the Jacksonville
team headed by Jason McDuffie for the best
brisket at the event.
Also, in our:non-judge opinions, the rib
honors would have gone to Fernandina's US
Bar-B-Que, staffed by Fernandina's very own
Hooper family of James, Brenda, Brian and
more, who also cook up a smoked turkey leg
that is not only big enough to make a meal,
but also has enough meat left to use in a pot of
home-cooked collards or butter beans, and if
you want terrific recipe for any of that just
ask one of the Hoopers, who also cater for
island folks. Call them at 556-1652 or (904)

There are a slew of good musicians on the
island but one of my favorites is the singing
trio of guitarist Dan Voll, bass player Michele
Anders and drummer Nico Findeisen, who can
be found most Fridays on the deck at the
Green Turtle on South Third Street handling
soft rock, Jimmy Buffett beach tunes, '60s and
'70s stuff, among others. Dan also appears
solo at O'Kane's, Sandy Bottoms and other
local venues as well as performing with other
local groups including the Beech Street Blues
Band. The Voll-Findeisen-Ander trio, which
call themselves The Islanders, has a mix of
humor and charisma that would enable them
to pull off a few Austin Lounge Lizard parody
tunes, particularly "Teenage Immigrant
Welfare Mothers on Drugs" and Buffett's
"Everybody's Got a Cousin in Miami" with
ease and without offending anyone well,
almost everyone.

Restaurant/bar comings and goings: Look
for changes including new LED TV screens at
popular sports bar Beef O'Brady's in the
Public Shopping Center at the corner of Sadler
and South 14th Street, which Tom and Debbie
Vafiadis are in the process of selling to local
couple Michael and Charlotte Parker with all
the details expected to be wrapped up in two
to four weeks.
Say goodbye to Luigi's Trattoria in an old
house at the corner of South Fifth and Ash
streets, whose owner, Giovanna DeMartino, is
moving to Ft. Lauderdale to open a trattoria
there, leaving a really quaint restaurant facility
with a covered front porch and courtyard avail-
able as well as a downtown Italiar) eatery gap.
Rumors swirling around Horizons, that ter-
rific restaurant in Palmetto Shops Walk on ,
First Coast Highway, are false as it is open and
doing just fine, thank you, reports owner/chef
Courtney Thompson. If you haven't tried it yet
you are in for a treat, and ask for a table
upstairs by a window, my favorite spot.
Doggone it, the Saturday morning farmers
market on North Seventh and Centre is mov-
ing from Fernandina to the Shops of Omni


Amelia Island Plantation leaving behind a lot
of disappointed locals and tourists who walked
and rode their bikes there for fresh fruit, veg-
etables, pasta and more.

If you want to meet some physically fit
women from age 19 to over 40 who will knock
your socks off with their athleticism and good
looks and who sport names like Hawaiian
Punch, Britt Vicious, Booty Brawlins, T-Bad,
Violet La Femme, Katsby Klaw'n, etc., then
head to the Peck Center Gym beginning Sept.
6 at 6:30 p.m. because that's where the island's
first and only roller derby team, the
FernanDivas, will be practicing for their
upcoming "bouts," as their matches are called,
and they need skating referees and non-skat-o
ing officials of both genders as well as any gals
who may be interested in joining the team.
I Kelly "Juice Boxxx" Chufo tells me that the
rapidly growing roster includes 21 women,
mostly island-born residents who, when not
smashing into one another at breakneck
speeds on roller skates during practice ses-
sions, can be foupd in occupations that include
psychiatric nure practitioner, dog groomer,
bartender, naval officer, audiovisual techni-
cian, welder, body piercer, stay-at-home mom,
and hair stylist, among others.
Ms. Chufo says the team referees' job is to
track poiAts'and penalties during a jam, which
is a two-minute period during which most of
the action takes place in a bout If you volun-
teer to be-a skating referee or non-skating offi-
cial, no previous roller derby experience is
required, you get to pick a cool name like
"Tootie Tinwhistle" or "Oedipus Ref," dress in
black and white stripes, blow a whistle to start
and end'jams and call penalties, all while
avoiding collisions with "Murda Wuzda Case,"
"Whip Lash," "Hurts Majesteague" and other
non-girly-girls who will help train you or knock
you unconscious.
Check the team out at
www.facebodk.com/FernandinaBeachRollerD
erby and if you're interested e-mail Kelly at
KellyChufo@gmaiLeom. Practice sessions are
every Monday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. and
skates are not required since newcomers will
be trained with a trainer/coach until they have
their skates and decide to commit

FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 2012 OPINION News-Leader

VIEWPOINT/JASoN STANFORD/AUSIN.TEXAS



GOP's Anti-science' Committee


The Mars Curiosity Rover has more than 1
million followers on Twitter. Todd Akin, the
Senate candidate who believes rape victims
have a biological defense against getting preg-
nant, has a little over 5,000.
The Curiosity Rover has inspired
Earthlings to further scientific exploration
and research. The Missouri Republican has
inspired leaders of his party to beg him to
drop out.
Guess which one has more influence on
our nation's science and space policy? o
It's Akin, who sits on the House Science,
Space and Technology Committee, and
he's far from an outlier among the majority on
that committee. At a time when our economy
and the future of this planet depend upon sci-
entific consensus and advancement,
Republicans who don't believe in the scientific.
method are running the House Science
Committee.
It's one thing to hold moral views
that run contrary to science. Anyone who
believes in the resurrection, for example,
holds an anti-scientific view, as does anyone
who believes that by eating a tiny cracker
that they are eating a piece of someone's
body. In fact, faith the belief without proof -
is anti-scientific. That's not what I'm talking
about.
The Republican members of the House
Science Committee hold anti-scientific views
of such towering ignorance they make you
question evolution.
Holding the gavel is 89-year-old Ralph Hall,
an East Texan who's not sure whether the


planet is getting hotter or not. "We have some
real challenges; we have the global warming
or global freezing," said Hall. On behalf
of Texas, we're sorry about Hall. We
thought Congress would be a safe place to
keep him and never intended for him to be
given sharp objects or a position of actual
importance.
Then there's California Congressman
Dana Rohrabacher, bless his heart. When he
learned that decaying plant matter emits
greenhouse gasses, he asked, "Is there some
thought being given to subsidizing the clear-
ing of rainforests in order for some countries
to eliminate that production of greenhouse
gases?"
Georgia's Dr. Paul Broun the kind of
Republican who compared Obama to Hitler
and then apologized "for putting it that way" -
betrays no ambivalence about global warming
or why he's on the science committee. "I very
much would like to debunk this myth that
there is a scientific consensus that we have
human-induced climate change," he said. "I
want to focus on what the truth is, instead of
this blanket statement that there is this scien-
tific consensus that this is occurring, which is
balderdash."
Note to Broun: There's so much scientific
consensus that our planet is cooking that even
a study funded by the Koch brothers reached
the same conclusion. But again, we're talking
about a medical doctor who, when the
Centers for Disease Control urged people to
eat more fruits and vegetables, said, "This is,
socialism of the highest order!"


Pity the poor scientists who testify before
their committee, for their words are wasted. It
is a liberal conceit that the world's problems
can be solved through education. Raise
your hand if you've ever said, "Education is
the magic bullet." Now slap yourself
with that hand. The anti-scientific congress-
men who run the House Sciehce Committee
are educated. They have all the facts at their
disposal. They choose, with purpose and
determination, to hold beliefs contrary to
these facts.
In this case, evidence will not give light to
darkness. We can't simply sail over the hori-
zon to prove to them that the Earth is round.
They have globes, scientific consensus and
personal experiences to draw from, yet these
guys are drawing curtains against the
Enlightenment. The truth isn't setting them
free when it comes to conservative hostility to
science.
This is where you come in. A blogger for
Wired magazine tried to find Democrats on
the House Science Committee who shared
similarly anti-scientific views but came up
empty. This is one reason I become angry
with cynical observers who falsely blame both
parties for what ails our body politic. You may
not agree with everything the Democratic
Party believes and in fact, I don't know a
Democrat who does but we do believe in sci-
ence.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Beach drtvng
This coming Tuesday the city com-
mission will discuss a request to annex
Nassau County's beach-facing proper-
ty from Peters Point north to the city
limits. This annexation request was
submitted by Mr. Tom Gambino of
Atlanta and his Sandpiper Driving
Committee and is for the sole purpose
of eliminating beach driving!
Many of us who live on the beach
are against annexation. And we believe
that everyone who enjoys spreading
out on this wonderful stretch of Florida
beach should be aware that property
owners from out of state are leading
this effort to eliminate the last vestige
of beach driving on our island.
All Nassau County residents who
wish to see their beach driving privi-
leges maintained should attend this
very important commission meeting
and voice their objections to this invol-
untary annexation petition. If suc-
cessfully supported by the commis-
sion and allowed to proceed, beach
driving at Peters Point will be elimi-
nated. Spread the word!
Tell your city commissioners that
you oppose this involuntary annexa-
tion, and come to Tuesday's city com-
mission meeting at6 p.m. at City Hall

Rants'
I am saddened to see some of the
letters published in our paper which
are really rants. Unfortunately I see
more and more letters like this in the
News-Leader, which makes me just
want to skip the letters to the editor
section.
These letters are characterized byr
faulty logic such as guilt by association
or making up your own straw man and
attacking the straw man, name call-
ing, gross characterizations (i.e., X did
or said this and X belongs to Y group
so Y group must endorse or believe
this), opinions presented as facts, spe-
cially selected facts or inaccurate
"facts" and a smug, self-righteous atti-
tude to name some of the shortcom-
ings.
Letters like that do not help us to
have serious or enlightened discus-
sions about serious issues. Rather, they
serve to divide us more and contribute
to the hyper-partisanship that we are
seeing in our nation. It would help the
public discourse to have some well-
reasoned, logical letters that assume
that other people who disagree with
them have valid points of view or
beliefs. Hopefully, you get. plenty like
this. If not, I would hope that you
wouldn't print some of the letters that
really are rants.

An elderly beloved mother is walk-
ing around the house at night, con-
fused, searching, not even knowing
what she's searching for, just know-
ing something is amiss. A crash is
heard by formerly sleeping family
members who recognize the sound of
splintering glass, as the alarming real-
ization enters their fuzzy brains that
grandmom is up again and wandering
around the house.
Dementia/Alzheimer's is a devas-
tating disease. It robs us of our best


asset, our brain, which we take for
granted every day. Our brains help us
walk, talk, swallow, go to the bathroom
at the right time; it's not "just for think-
ing"! Not only does this crippling dis-
ease injure the individual, but it can
also endanger the loved ones that have
the responsibility to make things right
on a daily basis for their dying loved
one, with dignity and joy, as the
inevitable death sentence arrives.
We look to God for strength and
wisdom, and we look to our just and
kind society, for enlightenment, edu-
cation, inspiration and potential
resources to help in these difficult
times. Our family has been blessed by
the Council on Aging, namely the
Alzheimer's Support Group and espe-
cially the Adult Daycare Center, run by
Debra Dombkowski. The Adult
Daycare Center, or "Club" as we like to
refer to it, is "Mother's Club" and has
allowed us some respite where Mother
can do arts and crafts, go bowling, gar-
den, listen to live music, play bingo,
among other such activities. Mother is
safe, challenged with activities, has
fun, makes friends and normalizes in
the routine of routine. We all do, and
we are grateful
Like polio, this dread disease will be
overcome. Until then, these challenges
remind us that life is precious, things
we take for granted should be recon-
sidered and appreciated, and so should
the people around us that bless us
every day. Thank you, Debra, Kelly
and those at the Council on Aging that
help make aging dignified and even
fun. Bless you!
Please support the First Annual
COA Walk-A-Thon, Saturday, Sept. 8,
which will raise funds for services at
our neighborhood COA.

I am a caregiver for Robert (my
husband). I would like to say I do not
know what I would do without COA
adult daycare program. My husband
has dementia and has had a stroke in
2006. I1 need this extra help. My hus-
band has gained some weight and it is
getting harder for me to pick him up
and transfer him.
He has done so much better since
he started to going to daycare. He is
learning different things, coloring,
crafts, puts puzzles together, outings,
but most of all he likes being around
other people like him and his age.
The staff (Debra and Kelly) really
helps me out with things I need to
know about what is going on with him.
If they need my help they will let me
know. I have family members that can't
help me out. It is a blessing for the
daycare center to help me out.
I personally don't think he needs to
go to a nursing home nor do I have the
money. The adult daycare is best for
him.
I'm really concerned about the day-
care.

Senior center
I am writing to express my full sup-
port to keep the adult daycare senior
center open for the benefit of Nassau
County residents.
I moved to Nassau County over
seven years ago with an ailing hus-


CHRISTOPHERWEYANTHE HILL (WASHINGTON. D.C.)


band suffering from one of the worst of
all dementias, Lewy Body Dementia
(LBD). It is not a rare disease. It affects.
an estimated 1.3 million individuals
and their families in the US. The symp-
toms can closely resemble other more
commonly known diseases like
Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. He suf-
fered from illusions, delusions and
memory loss as well as other debili-
tating functions requiring extra care I
was unable to provide alone.
If it were not for the compassionate
care from Debra Dombkowski and her
staff that run the daycare center for
adults, I would have been unable to
do things that others take for granted
such as showering, running to the
store for groceries and family needs.
Even an occasional nap helped me
recoup from the long nights sitting up.
Some clients take care of young chil-
dren and ailing parents all the while,
holding down ajob just trying to keep
their family together. Others, like me,
struggle alone daily. ,
We do not expect someone else to
pay our bills but sometimes even the
most stalwart need a helping hand to
ease the stress. The daycare only
charges what you could afford based
on your family income and severity on
a case by case basis. This, really
helps when you are on a fixed income
budget.
I also was blessed knowing that the
senior center took excellent care of
my husband and the others providing'
them with activities such as field trips,
bowling, fishing, arts and crafts, gar-
dening, feeding the birds and provid-
ing healthy discussions of current
events to keep them focused on life
and not the ailments besieging them.
I understand that some in our com-
munity have voiced concern over the
possibility of removing the adult day-
care senior center. However, without
the assistance our elderly receive from
such a caring facility, many Nassau
County residents could not care for
their parents, grandparents and rela-
tives leaving that up to taxpayer-fund-
ed nursing homes for full-time care.
I urge you to move forward on the
decision to continue to support this
humanitarian benefit for our county's
seniors.

Tea Party response
In response to a misleading and
disparaging letter to the editor head-


lined "Tea Party" (Aug. 24), I would
like to remind him and your readers
that invoking the musings of a
Missouri Senate candidate that has
been repudiated by most all
Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians
and most people associated with the
Tea Party (which by the way is non-
partisan, there is no Tea Party
organization, only groups of people
with like interests) only provides evi-
dence that they are not all of a single
thought.
As a person that has many votes
for Democrats, Republicans and a few
Libertarians over the past 60-plus
years, I can tell (the letter writer) that
either your circle of people to have
conversation with is restricted or your
views are the extreme as displayed in
your letter to the editor. If you are of
the opinion that many Republicans sup-
port the views of Todd Akin, or support
skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee,
or the views of Dan Cafee, you are not
listening. What most of us, including
Republicans, Libertarians and even
some Democrats, support and would
die for is the liberty a~nd freedom to
perform and espouse these acts and
views.
The inference that the Republican
Party has a "message and vision for
America" that includes "ignorance,
hypocrisy, the abandonment of sci-
ence, common sense, women's rights
and just plain empathy for" one's fellow
man is stated without any evidence or
other support which goes to credibil-
ity. There is considerable evidence that
the opposition party is the one living in
the Washington, D.C., bubble out of
touch with reality and in ignorance of
the desires of the citizens of the U.S.
No doubt the president of the United
* States had good intentions even if they
turned out to be misguided. He made
many promises but was unable to deliv-
er on almost all even though he had
House and Senate majorities for two
years. When the president goes around
the country espousing untrue and half-
truths about the Republicans and will
not talk about his accomplishments,
or should we say lack thereof, who is
,the charlatan? When he fails to recog-
nize things he has done does not cor-
rect. the economy but proposes more
of the same, who seems to have no
common sense?
The record since the early 1900's
clearly shows that what candidate Mitt
Romney wants to do is an economic
driver that has brought recovery from
economic downturns when imple-


mented over and over by both
Democratic and Republican presidents.
We need an attitude in government
that fully supports laissez-faire: It does
not mean without regulation but reg-
ulated only as needed. We also need to
support all forms of energy develop.
ment and that is not an abandonment
of science but a belief that science can
and will continue to solve problems
and make this Earth and its inhabi-
tants better off. Yes, it is perceived by
younger women that Mr. Romney is
not as supportive of women as the
president, but he does quite well with
middle and older women. The reason
of course is he supports all the
women's issues as well as the presi-
dent. Like most (greater than 65 per-
cent) Americans, he does not support
partial-birth abortions.
I don't know who (the letter writer)
has been talking to but it will be a hard,
sell to convince me that he can strike
up conversations and find in the entire
county more than a few handfuls of
people that will espouse the birther
view or the belief that president is
attempting to invoke Shariah law. I sus-
pect that there is some considerable
exaggeration in the statement, which
hurts his credibility. The accusations of
pandering are laughable coming as
support of an administration that has
openly engaged in crony capitalism
and pandered to unions among other
things. Compromise is welcome for
all things except a few items, but when
was the last offer by the Democrats
for real compromise, maybe when
George Bush was president.
Your ripping the Tea Party speaks
volumes about where the real crazies
reside. As only a witness of the Tea
Party, I can only offer my observation
of people that are honorable, have gath-
ered around the country without prob-
lems, people who conduct themselves
in the most civil manner, clearly unlike
the occupiers.
We happen to be proud of family,
America and somewhere on the list
our party. We believe, unlike our pres-
ident, in the rule of law even when we
don't agree with it. Most of us (more
than half the U.S. citizens) believe in
the U.S. Constitution, believe also that
government should be as small as pos-
sible and regulate only as necessary,
that government should not be our
nanny (but support the needy) and
provide constitutional police and mili-
tary support.

Family marks 40th Fernandina reunion


BRENDA GRUENWALD
For the News-Leader
This Labor Day weekend
will mark the 40th Faircloth
family reunion we started
coming down to Fernandina
in 1972.
My grandparents, Jack
Faircloth and Willa Stephens,
were married in Swainsboro,
Ga., in 1918 and moved to
Vidalia, Ga., with a small
child (Aunt Margaret) on a
rutted dirt road in a covered
wagon between 1919-20.
Their marriage produced 10
children (Margaret Glaze,
West Palm Beach; Mary
Sellers, Jacksonville; Orethia
Blaxton, Vidalia: Commie
Lindsay,Titusville; Irving
Faircloth, West Palm Beach;
Leon Faircloth, Ellabell, Ga.;
LouJean Daniels; Starke;
Josephine Hall, Ellabell, Ga.:
Joyce Maxwell, Homestead:
and Larry Faircloth,
(Savannah) that granny
raised after granddaddy Jack
died in 1941.
Granny passed away in
1971 and, up until this date,
we had a birthday get-togeth-
er for her every July in
Savannah -granny's 10 chil-
dren, grandchildren, siblings
and cousins attended. Our
parents still wanted to honor
her and have a get-together
(not necessarily with her sib-
lings), so my mother, Orethia
Faircloth Blaxton, and my..
aufit Mary FairdlotfrSeHers
came up with the idea of
Fernandina as the most cen-
tral location for everyone to
meet. Our aunts came up on
Saturday (a week before
Labor Day) and stayed the
entire week, with us coming
on the weekend.
Fernandina was a sleepy
town in 1971 and we enjoyed
it very much. The kids would
play on the waterslides and

ride go-karts and; on
Sunday night, we would all'
play Putt-Putt often
taking up both sides of the
course.
The first house we stayed
at was Mrs. Moore's on ,,
South Fletcher she had the
best little grocery store. We
also stayed at the Hacienda


for many years.
Granny Faircloth has 35
grandchildren, 80 great-
grandchildren, 104 great-
great-grandchildren and 4
great-great-great-grandchil-
dren and would be proud of
us for continuing this tradi-
tion. Several of us cousins
come down now on Monday


ILft, all 10 children of
Jack and Willa Faircloth -

F. Sellers, Irving
Faircloth, Margaret F.
Glaze, Orethia F. Blaxton,
Larry Faircloth, Commie
F. Lindsay, Josephine F.,
Hall, Joyce F. Maxwell and
Leon Faircloth on North
Fletcher Avenue in 1983.

(along with some of our chil-
dren and grandchildren) and
stay the week, with other
family members coming at
the end of the'week.
We hope to continue this
tradition for many more -
years, but with rentals going
up so much every year, we
may need to find an alternate
beach fori our reunion.
Brenda Gruenwald is the
granddaughter ofJack and
Willa Faircloth.

SEASON OPENERS


for Annie's
The seventh annual Jamai-
ca Invitational Pro-Am "An-
nie's Revenge" presented by
Nike Golf will be played at
two of the island's top golf
courses, Cinnamon Hill and
White Witch, in Jamaica's
tourist capital, Montego Bay,
Nov. 14-18.
The Iberostar Grand Hotel
Rose Hall will once again
serve as the host hotel for
tournament participants.
., .Teams of four players,
comprising a professional and
three amateur golfers, will
compete over 54 holes, play-
ing both courses as they com-
pete for the Jamaica Pro-Am
Championship trophy. Golf
professionals will play for a
purse of $30,000. -
Last year's leading money
winner, John Denholm from
Steubenville Country Club in
Ohio, will attempt to defend
his title against a field of 40
pros eager to capture a share
of this year's increased prize
purse.
Among them is Amelia
National head professional
Jack Aschenbach, who ranks
the Jamaica Invitational Pro-
Am "Annie's Revenge" as one
of the top Pro-Am tourna-
ments, given its level of
organization, incredible hos-
pitality and breathtaking
courses.
Now in its seventh year,
the tournament presented by
Nike Golf and the Jamaica
Tourist Board continues to
attract growing interest from
golfers not just within the
U.S. but the Caribbean,
Canada as well as Europe.
Aschenbach, who is also
president of the North Flori-
da PGA Chapter, answered
five questions from tourna-.
ment organizers, The Golf
Connection.
TGC: "How many times
have you played at Annie's
Revenge?"
Aschenbach: "Last year
was my first time playing at
the Jamaica Invitational Pro-
Am "Aniiie's Revenge" and I
am eager to return for this
year's tournament."
TGC: "Why are you
returning to Jamaica this year
for Annie's Revenge?"
Aschenbach: "It was a
great first impression. The

BETHJONES,
News-Leader
The Pirates are on a mission. The
Fernandina Beach Middle School foot-
ball teams hopes to reclaim the Nassau
County championship; Callahan won it
last fall
"Losing the county championship
last year really motivated our returning
players this year during the off-season
workouts," said Cam Harrison, head
football coach at FBMS. "They don't
want to have that feeling again."
The Pirates return 13 players from
that team, including six starters. .
"We feel pretty good about our group
of young men," Harrison said. "Our off-
season conditioning program started in
February and the boys have really been
working hard in preparation for this sea-
son."
FBMS will take on the St. Marys,
Ga., eighth-grade team twice and
Camden's eighth-grade team in addition
to county rivals Callahan and Yulee.
"Our young men are excited about
getting this year started and we have
high hopes for this year," Harrison said.
FBMS kicks off the 2012 campaign
Tuesday at Pirate Field against the St.
Marys eighth-grade squad.

The Yulee High School football team,
coming off a 42-0 shutout over Lee in
last week's preseason Kickoff Classic,
traveled to Gainesville Thursday for the
regular season opener.
"We have a lot of work to do like
most teams," said Bobby Ramsay, head
football coach at Yulee. "It's a challeng-
ing schedule. We have a short week to
get ready for Gainesville, who is No, 3 in
6A. They are well coached and talented.
Three major D-1 skill players, but I like
how we competed last year. We left a
win out there, so we will see if we can
make up for it this year."
Against Lee, senior Derrick Henry
carried the ball 20 times for 205 yards
and a pair of touchdowns. He also
reeled in two passes for 27 yards.
Tristyn Bennett scored on both of his
receptions for 50 yards. Dalton Bradley
completed six of 12 passes for 100
yards.
Brycen Gagnon had six tackles and
two interceptions, which he returned for
touchdowns, to lead the Hornet
defense. Zane Cruz had five stops and
an interception,
"I was happy with the overall defen-
sive performance," Ramsay said. "Lee

had a lot of speed. We (lid not give up
the big play, which was a problem last
y e ar., I
"Offensively, the passing game
improved as the game went on. Our run
game produced some big plays, but we
had too many negative plays. The block-
ing needs to be more consistent, I
thought, for a lot of new players in the
kicking game, it looked good."
The IHornets' home opener is Sept. 7
against Potter's House. Kickoff is at 7
p.m.

Pirates play at Union
Tonight's the season opener for the
Fernandina Beach High School Pirates,
who head to aike Buller to take on
Union County. Kickoff is at 7:30 p;m.
The Pirates were edged 20-19 by
Williston last week in their preseason
Kickoff Classic.
"I was very pleased with our effort,"
said Travis Ilodge, head football coach
at FBIIS. "I thought we played very
hard and physical, We just made a ton of
mistakes, which are all fixable.
"Defensively we played very well we
just have to not give up the big play. A


lot of guys stood out defensively."
Dayrell Baker and DeAndre Floyd
had a pair of quarterback sacks apiece.
Jeremy.Taylor, Rhett Burford, Casey
Walker, Ben Venerdi and Floyd all had
six tackles each. Venerdi forced a fum-
ble, which Walker recovered.
"Cole Willis had a huge interception
for us on a third and goal," Hodge said.
The Pirates had 187 rushing yards
on the night.
"We really have a running back by
committee this season," Hodge said.
'They're a very young but talented
group and we're excited about them."
Will Mitchell had 12 carries for 87
yards; Tony Franklin, 10 carries for 54
yards; and Cha Chli Moses, seven car-
ries 25 yards.
Willis completed five of 10 passes for.
82 yards and a touchdown.
"We've gotI Union County this week,"
II odge said. 'They're a great program.
The No, 1I team in lA and state semi-
finalist last year. Coach Pruitt does a
great job and they're a top-notch pro-
gram, so it'll be a good test for us."
The Pirates' home opener is Sept. 7
with Keystone Ileights. Kickoff is at
7:30 p.m.

License-free saltwater


fun fishing on Saturday


Looking for something to
do this Labor Day weekend?
Why not get out on the water
and experience some of
Florida's finest fishing?
Saltwater recreational anglers
can fish without a recreational
fishing licenseSaturday as
part of the state's license-free
fishing days.
"Florida's license-free fish-
ing days are an excellent
opportunity to share the fun,
excitement and togetherness
of a fishing trip with the en-,
tire family. This also is a great
time for experienced anglers
to introduce friends to the
sport, even if they don't have
a fishing license," said Nick
Wiley, executive director of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
"We hope Florida resi-.
dents and visitors will experi-
ence the joy of saltwater fish-
ing. We expect many will,
discover a healthy sport they.
can enjoy for a lifetime." .
Gag grouper is open for
harvest in most state and all


federal waters in the Gulf and
Atlantic. For those looking to
get in the water, bay scallop
and spiny lobster seasons are
in full swing. Want to stick a
little closer to shore? Try
your hand at near-shore
species such as spotted
seatrout or red drum.
Fishing is a family-fun and
wholesome form of entertain-
ment, which is why the FWC
offers four license-free fishing
days each year. This year's
freshwater license-free fish-
ing days were April 7 and
June 9, and the first saltwater
day was June 2.
Learn how the state's
abundant resources, coupled
with responsible saltwater
and freshwater fish manage-
ment, make Florida the "Fish-
ing Capital of the World."
All other bag limit, season
*-and size restrictions apply on
these dates.

were incred-

"The views fr- t- f

look forward to yet another
fantastic experience. Partici-

vides great value and the hos-

makes us feel welcome"
TGC: "How does this tour-

Ams you've played?"
Aschenbach: "Well, this
tournament is well run and
organized. I've played in
many pro-ams and I can't
think of one that was better
coordinated with great atten-
tion paid to detail. The
Jamaica Invitational Pro-Am
'Annie's Revenge' ranks up
there or even higher with
Pro-Ams such as the at
Pinehurst. The ocean views at
the courses in Montego Bay
are simply breathtaking.
TGC: "What can we expect
from your team this year?"
Aschenbach: "We've had a
bit of a setback with regard to
preparation as one of our
players underwent surgery.
However, he's recuperating
nicely and should join us in
Jamaica. We plan on having a
great time and hope to do
well. We're coming to Mon-

have a grand time, win or

House during a
tour Saturday to
benefit Cats Angels
Inc., SPCA. More
than 75 people
took advantage of
the rare opportuni-
ty to see the pri-
vate home, consid-
ered one of the
finest examples of
Victorian Queen
Anne architecture
on Amelia Island.
Completed by.
architect George
Barber in 1895 for Kate Bailey and her husband
Effingham, the home was added to the National Register,
of Historic Places in 1973. Above right, white linens and
floral wallpaper offset the heavy and ornate Victorian-
style furniture in one of the bedrooms. Formerly a bed
and breakfast, current owners George and Barbara
Sheffield have committed to.keeping the period feel of-'-
the Bailey House, which is filled with antique furniture
as well as reproductions true to the period.
Some of Barbara Sheffield's antique dolls find a per-
fect perch on the landing of the grand staircase that wel-
comes visitors to the Bailey House at South Seventh and
Ash streets, above left. Barbara Sheffield's impressive
collection of antique dolls is evident everywhere in the
Bailey House, including this bedroom, above right.
Right, a stained-glass peacock graces a window in one of
the bathrooms. Docents explained that in Victorian
times, multiple-colored stained glass was one way to
demonstrate your wealth, and the Bailey House has
some exquisite examples. '

Dog-walk a tribute


to special pets, people


ED HARDEE
For the News-Leader
A special dog-walk through Fernandina.
Beach next Saturday will benefit two
worthy causes: fighting cancer, and
JA savingg animals. The causes are inter-
twined: Many cancer patients and their fami-
lies know that pets can be powerful allies.
"Cancer radically changed my life. But I
decided that humor needed to be part of my
medicine," says Alma Caloia ofFernandina
Beach. She says the "comedic relief' has come
from her three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels,
Oliver, Tiger Lily and Bailee: "Their uncondi-
tional love is there for me every day."
This year's Bark for Life dog walk will be
Saturday, Sept. 8 at Central Park, with event-
day registration starting at 9 am. and opening
ceremonies at 10 a.m. You're invited to regis- .
ter and walk with your dog or perhaps in
memory of a family member, or favorite pet, or
in tribute to a cancer survivor. The one-mile
route goes downtown and back.
Early registration is $20 per dog, event-day
is $25 per dog, and walkers receive a T-shirt,
doggie bandana and other amenities. Food.
and drink will be available, and proceeds will
benefit the Fernandina Beach/Yulee Relay for
Life and Nassau Humane Society.
Alma was on the planning committee last
year when the Bark for life was launched. She
and her husband, Tom, created a popular and
touching feature of last year's walk, called the'
Memory Wall. Walkers could remember pets
and people by inscribing their names on paper
hearts and dog bones that adorned the wall.

This year, Alma is once again working on

Saturday to help people write their messages
before posting them on the wall.

and believes that everyone can. "You have to
find something that gives youtjoy, something
that helps you be passionate," she says. "It
makes you feel better. It's medicinal."
And she treasures the support from her
canine family, too.
'They always greet me with great enthusi-
asm," she says of her pets. "Dogs have the
uncanny ability to read our body language.
What constantly amazes me about Oliver, Lily
and Bailee is their ability to know exactly how
I am feeling and respond without hesitation."

For the News Leader
Seventh Street Gallery invites
you to a sizzling show on Sept. 8
featuring two Florida airtiis (.l
orist and painter Kerry-'-ih-ilin
and raku potter Lynn Merhige.
Stamatin's resume includes
one-man shows in New York City,
San Francisco, Miami, Palm

between. A career painter, having
trained at the New York Studio
School, he is also a private
instructor and frequent guest lec-

Color is Stamatin's passion.
Whether he expresses this inten-

This eucalyptus cultivar is dying from the bottom up due
to root rot from excess watering. The trees are better
suited to a less humid climate.


Know tree's needs


before watering


.My eucalyptus tree is
.dying from the bottom
up. I water it once a week.
What could be wrong? JH
A .You most likely have one
,Iof the cultivars of
Eucalyptus globules, which is
not native to this country. It
prefers well-drained, acid
soils. I suspect with all the
rain we have been receiving
and the once-a-week watering,
this tree has developed a root
decay from which it cannot
recover.
There is
no chemical
fix for a root
rot and the
tree will prob-
ably slowly
decline until
it dies. There
are a few
things you
conild do to ,.TAL
possibly slow
the process. of
Remove any Becky]ordi
mulch from
around the root area, check
for girdling or circling roots,
cut and remove them. Remove
any excess soil from around
the roots they should have
only an inch or two of soil on
top.
Eucalyptus trees prefer a
less humid environment found
in most parts of California -
very different from what we
experience here in Northeast
Florida. Remember, most
trees and shrubs do not
require weekly irrigation
unless we are going through a
severe drought Whenever-
possible, irrigate flowerbeds,
trees and shrubs separately
from lawns as their needs are
vastly different.
I have caterpillars in my
p.pecan trees, how do I
control them? SB
A I, believe you probably
A have the fall webworm,
Hyphantria cunea (Drury) in
your pecan trees. It is a pest of
a number of ornamental trees
and shrubs, and several agri-
cultural crops including
pecans.
The larvae feed in huge
nests and are able to com-
pletely defoliate trees and
shrubs. Adult moths emerge
as early as March in the
South, but do not fly until late
spring or early summer in
northern Areas. Mostly, the
adults appeal from May to
August and deposit their eggs.
'The egg mass of Hyphantria
cunea is almost iridescent
green in color. The egg batch
contains 400-1,000( eggs.
In one to two weeks, the
laivae hatch and immediately
begin spinning their silk tent.
T'le young caterpillars place
the web over single leaves and
feed by skeletonizing. A fall
webworm tent normally
encloses the foliage at the end
of a branch. The caterpillars
can build large silk tents that
sometimes spread over sever-
al branches. At maturity, the
larvae may reach one inch in
length. lThroughout their
development, the caterpillars
are able to make distinct jerk-
ing movements in unlison if
the nest is disturbed. Insect
control oiln pecans needs to
take I)lace over several sea-
sons and it is advisable to pro-
tect beneficial insects as they
per forml well in keeping the
larvae in check.
When )possible, )oking a
hole in the silk nest will allow
for beneficial insects and birds
to feed on the caterpillars and

n. I picked up at plant at a
nursery recently, called
In an Pink. What can you tell
me about it? MB
A .Indian Pink is an uncom-
.*mon native wildflower
that grows in rich, moist
woods and along wooded
stream banks in most areas of
the South all the way to Texas.
Indian Pink is a clump-form-
ing herbaceous perennial
reaching a height of 12 to 18
inches. It is one of our most
attractive wildflowers. The
inflorescence is one-sided
with pretty, red tubular flow-
ers that flare out to reveal 5
short tips of bright yellow
interior.
There are many other
species in this genus: most
are either tropical or short-,
lived annuals. The native plant
nursery trade has taken some
interest in cultivating Indian
Pink because if is perennial,
will grow in shade, has a fairly
long blooming period and is
pollinated by hummingbirds.
It is easily grown in average,
medium-wet, well-drained soil
in full to, partial shade. I plant-
ed one in my flowerbed this
year and it has bloomed twice
a nice surprise. I have it
under an oak tree where it
receives ample shade and has
been protected from the del-
uging rains of this summer.
