*She said yes!

Robert Haney on bended knee with bride-to-be Melissa Trejos after
she said yes to a very public proposal on the front page of the News-

Melissa Trejos and Robert Haney
have been a couple for seven years,
so when Haney decided to pop the
question, he wanted to do.it in a dis^-
tinctive way.
"I was thinking about a billboard
but I thought that would'cost too
much," he quipped.
As agent for Liberty Bail Bonds,
Haney advertises in the News-Leader
and the idea crossed his mind to take
out an ad to ask his ladylove for her
, hand in marriage.
Advertising representative Fay
Hand wrote up the order, graphic artist
Eliza Holliday designed the ad and it
,appeared on -the front page of the
Friday, Jan. 18 edition. Haney waited
for. an excited response from his

right way that day. After a long day as
a real estate agent with Prudential
Chaplin Williams Realty, followed by a,
trip to the grocery store, Trejos had
more on her mind than catching up
on local news. .
"I had gotten the paper from the
mailbox in the nmui nine. but it was just
thrown in my car. He kept asking me
about the paper, did I read the paper."
"She was putting her drink on it
and everything," said Haney.
Finally about 8 p.m., after consid-
erable cajoling from Haney, Melissa
picked up the paper.
,"OK, already! I'll read it! And then
I saw it. I saw my name."
"When she saw it, she was all excit-

ed," said Haney, "And she did say yes."
The couple met July 4, 2005, when
both were living and working in
Kissimmee, but it wasn't until two years
ago that Haney thought it might be
time to take their relationship to anoth-
er level.
"I did the whole getting down on
one knee thing and handed (the ring)
to her, but I didn't ask her to marry
me," Haney admits. "But she just filled
in the blanks so there was a little bit of
a fight after that."

She was a devoted wife,
mother, grandmother, great- -
granidmother and friend to
many. She was a graceful,
vibrant, active woman who
enjoyed life. She was an avid
Bridge player and advocated the
game for older people since it
combined sociability, with exercise of the mind,
keeping her sharp and witty her whole life. She
also enjoyed tennis, gardening and home mak-
ing. Her greatest accomplishments came from
the love she showed to family and friends alike.
She was born in Kane, PA in 1919, the 13th
child of fourteen children. She was married in
California where her husband was stationed in
the military. They were married for 57 years
before his death in 1999. They lived in Pepper
Pike, OH before retiring to Amelia Island.
Lucille was preceded in death by her hus-
band and son, Tom, Jr., and all but one of her
brothers and sisters.
She is already greatly missed by her daugh-
ter, Patriciai "Pat" Karlovec (Dr. Ralph), three
grandchildren, Kathy Brown (A.J.), Cindy
Murdough (Marshall) and Kristy Mathot (Luke)
and six great-grandchildren, Shelby and Sawyer
Brown, Marshall, Grace and Cameron
Murdough and Charlotte Mathot. Her surviving
sister Martha Anderson lives in Osprey Village.
A service celebrating Lucille's life will take
place at the Amelia Plantation Chapel on
Monday, January 28,2013 at 10:00 am. The fam-
ily will receive friends following the ceremony
in the Cumberland Room of Osprey Village.

lem is that I like to cook. And
even worse, I like to grocery
shop. Not only do I see half of
my friends at the store, I also
sample a smorgasbord of tasty
fare as I go up and down the
aisles. People tell me I'm a little
odd when I explain that a pack-

them baking in my special sauce
or that I can already taste but-

four raw ones in my cart. I often

minutes sampling the week's
The worst thing of all is that
there are only the two of us, so
I will store half of each meal I've
prepared in the freezer so we
can enjoy a rerun in the future.
Since my freezer full of reruns
meant I had no room for food left
from recent festivities, the
Curtins will have a steady diet of
leftovers starting in October to
make room for as many goodies
as I want.

This year, there was a new
twist on the old lesson of start-
ing my Christmas preparations

early. I shop for Christmas all
year long, gifts aren't the prob-
lem. (The problem then be-
comes finding all of those good-
ies that I have tucked away so no
one will stumble across them -
but that's a whole anotherr story.)
Since we now take our annu-
al trek north over the Thanks-
giving holiday, I can no longer
begin my Christmas decorating
during that week. We got home
the week after Thanksgiving,
and I ran around like a crazy
person for the next two weeks.
I won't put the tree up before
our next Thanksgiving trip, but
you better believe most of the
other decorating will be done
before I start packing!
The unexpected lesson I
learned about starting early is to
be careful who you tell about it.
Catalogues for Christmas cards
and decorations start arriving
at our house in what, August? I
ordered our cards early, and
they were ready for mailing
before we left town. I made the
mistake of telling my Thanks-
giving hostess this tidbit, and it
wasn't a pretty scene.

My New Year's Resolution
is to remember these neat little
lessons when next Christmas
rolls around. You'll be able to
see that I've kept my resolution
because I'll be floating along
serenely while everyone around
me is running in frantic circles.

Class, costs and the coast

coast and, for many, it conjures up
images of the rich and famous ele-
gant mansions overlooking expanses
of delightfully deserted beachfront.
However, in most coastal communities noth-
ing could be further from the truth. In fact,
post-Sandy and in the wake of similar storms
on the Gulf Coast, the relevance and role of the
middle class in coastal communities has been
brought to the fore as have the pressures
(financial and otherwise) that are pushing
some of them out of their longtime coastal
homes. Coastal communities are often made
up of hard working men and women whose
families have lived in the area for generations,
folks who work as teachers, nurses, carpen-
ters, firefighters, small business owners, the
same kinds of people who live in any American
Some are being ousted from their commu-
nities by the simple cost of rebuilding after a
disaster such as Sandy, hit with the prices of
replacing a decades-old coastal home with a
new, stronger structure. This is exacerbated
when the new home not only has to meet cur-
rent building codes but must be constructed to
new coastal building standards that have been
imposed since the original home was put in
place. Another causality of this type of storm is
the loss of affordable rental housing stock that
is critical for young families and many in the

We shouldn't stand quietly by as
longtime coastal residents are
priced out of their properties.

service industry in coastal communities.
Add to the construction costs the likelihood
of increased insurance costs and tax value
increases, and it is easy to understand the chal-
lenges these coastal families face.
We don't pretend that any of these improve-
ments are unwise or unnecessary. Quite the
contrary better buildings mean greater sur-
vivability, and the coastal insurance programs
do need to be sustainable, but in a way that is
fair to all.
But we shouldn't stand quietly by as long-
time coastal residents are priced out of their
properties. It's not fair to them, and it's not
healthy for the communities who rely on their
skills and savvy to keep the lights on and the
doors open. And we can't let the discussion
over recovering from coastal calamities
devolve into a "rich vs. poor" debate because,
in many communities, that's not an accurate
picture at all.
As with many coastal concerns, there are
no easy answers or "one size fits all" solutions
to keep the coastal middle class in place.

Building standards and flood insurance are
non-negotiable items, and still offer a good
return for their increasingly higher invest-
ment. However, in the case of flood insurance,
the risk needs to be spread out broadly and
must include all who could be affected by
floods (whether along the coast or along a
river) and while the system needs to be self-
sustaining, that goal needs to be achieved over
time, not all at once through an overwhelming
premium spike.
Property taxation is largely a local issue
with multiple tools to help prevent sudden
spikes,in a tax bill, including homestead
exemptions or annual caps on increases. Local
coastal communities may need to look at how
other parts of the American coast have han-
dled such issues in the past.
The bottom line: The coastal middle class
suffers most when conditions that are out of
their control push property and structure
prices up beyond their ability to pay. But as the
backbone of many coastal communities, those
residents need to stay part of these communi-
ties even if it takes a little special protection
to do so.

Beach Preservation Association promotes the

Anaive people
Benjamin Franklin once said, "Those who
would give up essential liberty for a little tempo-
rary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." I
assure you that assault weapons in the hands of
the American people are absolutely essential to
maintain our freedoms'and safety!
It is a historical fact that Adolf Hitler promised
the German people that he would not take away
their guns. Once he amassed enough political
power he did exactly that and approximately 16
million people, who were not like him, were mur-
dered directly or indirectly by his commands.
Joseph Stalin also promised the same thing to
the Russian people and once they were disarmed
20 million people died including anyone who
Stalin even suspected opposed him. I could list at
least a dozen historical examples demonstrating
the exact same consequence of a people disarm-
ing themselves.
In 2008, the political candidate Barrack
Hussein Obama promised not to infringe upon our
Second Amendment rights. Today he is propos-
ing just that despite the fact he has no authority
to do so. The president, who swore an oath to
uphold our Constitution, is also required to follow
the supreme law of the land like any other citizen.
Do you really believe, despite all of the historical
evidence, the atrocities of human history could not
happen here??An educated,-and an.armed citi-
zenry is the, only way to ensure that evil on a
large scale does not come to our society.
There is the false argument that our society
has evolved to the point of sophistication that our
government could never turn on its people and
commit mass detentions and crimes. Remember
the Germans were a highly educated sophisti-
cated people and Hitler was very popular among

them and many Europeans when he first rose to
power. Another false argument is'that the Second
Amendment was passed when Americans had
single-shot flintlock muskets and not the modern
rifles of today. Remember the patriots of the 1770's
fought against the British army who also had
flintlock muskets. Today the primary weapon of
modern militaries is the assault rifle with the
point being that if you take away' the people's
assault rifles, and allow only common rifles and
handguns, it will shift the balance of power to
government I understand that most people read-
ing this do not fear our government because it has
never committed the atrocities seen elsewhere
around the globe. Please understand the reason
for this is because of the Second Amendment!
Yes, it is heartbreaking and frightening when
evil comes and takes away our loved ones, espe-
cially the innocent. Yes, we must discuss how to
make our children arid ourselves more secure but
not with false security. If only one teacher or
administrator had been properly trained and
armed perhaps fewer would have been murdered
in Connecticut. Perhaps if God had not been
taken out of the public square there would be
less evil in our land. Please understand it was
not a gun that killed those children, it was the evil
in that sick person's heart.
If you are wise you will cling to your bible and
your guns. Militaries more often than not follow
the orderssofdikt:aoi s If you wish.to remain a free
people thien'm yourselves! Thomas Jefferson
once said, "When government fears the people,
there is liberty. When the people fear govern-'
ment, there is tyranny." Once again folks, absolute
power corrupts absolutely. 5,000 years of human
history says I am right.

Could we be home to British artifacts?

Musings, opinions, observations, questions,
and random thoughts on island life,
Fernandina Beach and more:
After more than 40 years of hauling some
17 tons and 70,000 square feet of British
Heritage exhibition items ranging from origi-
nal coronation robes, military uniforms,
armor, original documents, life-size wax repli-
cas of the kings and queens, swords, replicas
of the Crown Jewels, etc., to close to 90 coun-
tries Amelia Island resident Nico Findeisen is
looking for a permanent home for the breath-
taking exposition that currently sits in a
Jacksonville warehouse. Considered the
world's largest collection of British historical
artifacts, the spectacular exhibition consists of
seven separate sections including the Golden
Jubilee; Parliament and the Exchequer;
Scottish Heritage; England, Scotland, Irelahd
and Wales; Robes, Coronets and Uniforms;
Famous Diamonds and Historic Royal
Jewelry; and Britain's Kings and Queens.
Over the years Nico, who has lived here
for the past eight years, and who was born in
Germany, raised in Miami and is married to
an English woman he met in Turkey, has
leased all or parts of the exhibition to govern-
ments, trade associations and corporations
among others, but would like to find a perma-
nent home for it and thinks Amelia Island, is
it. After all, considering the success of London
Bridge, which had no connection at all to
Arizona, and is now that state's second-largest
attraction after the Grand Canyon, imagine
how Amelia Island could capitalize on its
English heritage with this collection, since it
was ruled by the English from 1763 to 1783
and is named after King George II's daughter,
Amelia. Maybe even a statue of Princess
Amelia in front of the old downtown railway
station might be appropriate.
Anyone interested can contact Nico at 415-
3416. Oh, Nico also does historic tours of the
island and plays drums and sings as part of
the Dan Voll and Michele Anders trio, The

Islanders, and can be found
at the South Third Street

fast eggs, eat raw chili peppers just because
they're there and prefer habanero flakes on

your pizza rather than the milder red pepper
ones? If so then replenish your inventory of

you'll want to congregate with other chili-
heads at the Amelia Island Montessori-spon-
sored seventh annual Chili Cook Off on North
Second Street downtown from 11 a.m. to 4
p.m., or maybe even enter the competition. If
you think your chili recipe produces the
appropriate amount of forehead perspiration
then give it a public trial by entering before
Feb. 1 for just $125 a booth or $150 after that
date. Awards will be presented for Spiciest,
Most Unique, Chef's Choice, People's Choice,
Best Decorated Booth and Overall Winner.
And this yearT. Ray, ofT. Ray's Burger
Station, who in an unprecedented feat won
both the People's Choice and Overall cate-
gories last year, has been removed from the
competition by the chief chiliheads who made
him a judge for next month's event so others
now have a clear shot at those titles. So if
you're a hard-wired chilihead who craves the
warmth and heat of chilies, contact the
Montessori School at 261-6610 or email them
at AIMSchili@gmail.com. Oh, you can still
tuck into T. Ray's award-winning chili at the
South Eighth and Beech Streets eatery even
though it won't be available during the compe-

Best wishes go out to Captain Kevin

ness and still treating folks to daily cruises

I don't understand the sports media fawn-
ing all over Baltimore Ravens' linebacker Ray
Lewis, a man who was indicted on two murder
and aggravated assault charges in Atlanta in,
2000, negotiated a plea bargain in exchange
for testimony against his friends, admitted giv-
ing misleading statements, was sentenced to
probation and who later paid a settlement to
one of the two murder victims' children pre-
empting a scheduled civil proceeding. Lewis
also reached an undisclosed settlement with
the other victim's family and to date the blood-
stained clothing he wore the night of the mur-
ders has never been found. Folks, this guy is a
dangerous thug, and I don't know about you
but I wouldn't want to sit too close to anyone
in a local sports bar wearing a jersey with
Lewis' name on it.

Not only has Dub Mullis been forced to
relocate his longtime fruit and vegetable
stand from next to the Flash Food conven-
ience store in front of the Harris Teeter shop-
ping area, on the traffic circle on AIA, but the
huge centuries-old oak trees that shaded his
place of business have also disappeared,
uprooted for an expanded gas station and
Dub moved further south on the First
Coast Highway so if you are in that area stop
by for a wide selection of fresh produce or a
bag of boiled peanuts. His is the place with
the sign reading: "Don't disturb me, I'm dis-
turbed enough already." The tree removal and
Dub's "eviction" don't exactly inspire me to
shop at either Flash Food or Harris Teeter
anytime soon.

A fine from a recent Thomas Sowell syndi-
cated column that bears repeating:
"Everybody is talking about how we are going
to pay for the huge national debt, but nobody
seems to be talking about the runaway spend-
ing which created that record-breaking debt.
In other words, the big spenders get political
benefits from handing out goodies, while
those who resist giving them more money to
spend will be blamed for sending the country
off the 'fiscal cliff."

Master abstract expres-
sionist Mark Rothko has just
landed the biggest commis-
sion in the history of modem
art, a series of murals for New
York's famed Four Seasons
Restaurant. In the two fasci-
nating years that follow,
Rothko works feverishly with
his young assistant, Ken, in
his studio on the Bowery, but
when Ken gains the confi-
dence to challenge him,
Rothko faces the agonizing
possibility that his crowning
achievement could also
become his undoing. Raw
and provocative, "Red" is a
searing portrait of an artist's
ambition and vulnerability as
he tries to create a definitive
work for an extraordinary set-
ting. Contact Amelia@fltplay

Ben Prestage and his One
Man Show come to the
Dog Star Tavern in
Fernandina Beach on
Saturday, Feb. 2.

Concert to

help keep,

music in


For the News-Leader

Dog Star Tavern is team-
ing up with Attic Community
Playground to bring Ben
Prestage and his One Man
Show to Fernandina Beach
on Saturday, Feb. 2.
Attic C6mmunity
Playground is a nonprofit
organization that supports
music programs in publicly
funded schools through their
grant program. It has been
providing funding to schools
in need for over three years
with the mission to keep
music in school. Jennifer
Nettles of Sugarland serves
on the board for Attic
Community Playground and
has done solo performances
to raise money and awareness
for the organization.
Ben Prestage grew up in
the swamp country of south
central Florida. His musical
influences began with his
great-grandmother, a
Vaudeville musician who
toured with Al Jolson and par-
ticipated in the popular medi-
cine shows of the 1920's. His
mother was a Boogie-Woogie
pianist and painter that per-
formed for Ben at a young
age. On the otter side ofl e.
family tree, his grandfather
was a Mississippi sharecrop-
per who turned Ben onto the
sounds and culture of
Mississippi Delta and Blues
in general.
Ben Prestage began his
musical career as a busker
(street performer) on the his-
torical Beale Street of
Memphis, Tenn. There he
perfected playing his cigar
box/banjo alongside his
drum-kit, which always
attracted people's attention.
Ben learned a lot from play-
ing on the streets of
Memphis, including working
with John Lowe, (inventor of
the Lowebow, a type of did-
dley-bow that he plays),
Robert Belfour, and Richard
Since then, Ben has
returned to Memphis over
the years for the International
Blues Challenge, which con-
sists of the world's largest
gathering of Blues musicians.
In three consecutive years he
took fourth, third and second
place in this prestigious
event. He also is the only two-
. time recipient of the
Lyon/Pitchford Award for
"Best Diddley-Bow Player."
Ben's interesting approach
to instrumentation (finger-
style guitar, harmonica,
banjo, lap-steel, fiddle, res-
onator guitar, foot-drums, ,
vocals and his award-winning
original songwriting) has
earned him invitations to per-
form across North America,
Europe and as far away as
North Africa. He is the recipi-
ent of "The Most Unique
Performer" at "The
Songwriters' Showcase of
America" and is currently
nominated for an
Independent Music Award
and a Blues Music Award.
All awards aside, Ben has
proven himself, through his
live performances, to be the
future of American Blues,
Roots Music and Americana.
From the swamp county of
the Everglades, to the historic
streets of Fernandina, Ben
Prestage is a performer in
every sense of the word.
Ten percent of all proceed
from this night will be donat-
ed to Attic Community
Playground. For more infor-
mation contact Dog Star
Tavern on North Second
Street, Fernandina Beach, at

Wissmann family

in concert Feb. 16
Hailing from the Midwest, the 15-member
Wissmann family has spent the past 12 years
delighting audiences nationwide with their
delightful blend of gospel bluegrass music. While
four of the older Wissmann children no longer
perform with the family due to marriage and
job responsibilities, Loren, Gloria and their nine
touring children fill each concert with tight vocal
harmonies, award-winning bluegrass pickin' and
memorable family moments.
Traveling in their 45-foot bus, the Wissmann
family annually shares its musical talents with an
average of 200 services each year throughout 35
states, Canada and Mexico.
Each of the children is an essential part of
each concert, singing in harmonies and playing
a wide variety of instruments, including: guitar,
bass, banjo, mandolin, dobro, harmonica, fid-
dles, hammered dulcimer, cello, flute and key-
board. The variety and creativity in their musi-
cal arrangements will be sure to give you a toe
tappin' good time. But to the Wissmanns, each
concert is about more than musical talent. It's a
showcase for their genuine passion to share the
hope and promise found in Jesus Christ.
The Wissmans will be in concert at Amelia
Baptist Church, 961167 Buccaneer Trail,
Fernandina Beach, on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 7
p.m. Don't miss this opportunity to experience
these unique elements that make each concert
