Murderer




gets life




in prison

MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
A 45-year-old Fernandina Beach man has been sen-
tenced to life in prison after pleading guilty Thursday
to murdering his next-door neighbor on Stanley Drive.
Harry Ira Patrick pleaded guilty to charges of first-
degree murder and burglary with assault and battery
stemming from the Nov. 12, 2006, death of his 76-year-
old neighbor, Betty Anderson. He was not prosecuted
on a grand theft auto charge.
Patrick's plea was entered before Nassau County
Circuit Court Judge Robert Foster.
Foster accepted a plea agreement
that also included a requirement
that Patrick pay court costs and
$11,627 in victim restitution.
Patrick was arrested shortly after
Anderson was found dead at her
Fernandina Beach home. Police said
then that Patrick approached detec-
tives and told them he had corn- Patrick
mitted the crime, although he sub-
sequently entered a not guilty plea.
"(Patrick) approached law enforcement at the scene
and stated, 'I did it,'" Detective Tracy Hamilton wrote
in the original police report. "(Patrick) was trans-
ported to the police department... (and) he admitted
to forcing himself into the victim's home, armed with
a knife (and) he used the knife to take the victim's life."
Patrick allegedly told police he then took money and
Anderson's PT Cruiser.
A neighbor found Anderson dead on the floor about
7:30 a.m. that Sunday morning at her 903 Stanley
Drive home. Patrick lived at 901 Stanley Drive.
Anderson's car was found at the Egans Creek
Greenway parking lot off Atlantic Avenue, less than a
mile from her home, about 10 a.m., according to police.
ta. l ,:Nighbors were shocked by the act of brutality on .
their quiet city street. They watched in disbelief as
police taped off the Anderson and
Patrick homes, and officers and tel-
evision news crews parked on their
front lawns.
"You just can't believe it,"
Deborah Meitin said at the time.
"Betty kept herself busy in her yard
and was just a real Christian lady
who was real active in the commu-
nity. You'd never expect something Anderson
like this to happen to someone like
that She was a precious lady."
News of Anderson's death reached most of the
congregation at her church that Sunday between the
morning and noon services at St. Peter's Episcopal
Church on Atlantic Avenue.
"She was so generous and,such a kind person she
was just wonderful," said Bonnie Johnson, a church

'Hope, trust and faith' for a better Pakistan

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader


With each bomb that explodes,
VeedaJavaid remains committed to
her work.
"Our hope and aim is td count-
er" the violence "by opening
Christian-run schools," she said.
Javaid spoke via cell phone Jan.
10 from her home in Pakistan. That
same day, a suicide bomber killed
at least 24 people in Lahore, outside
the high court.
The bombing occurred seven
minutes' drive from Javaid's office
where she works as the executive
director for the Presbyterian
Education Board.
"An hour later, we would have
been on that road," Javaid said, not-
ing that one teacher's husband
"just narrowly escaped" the blast.
'This is what life is like in
Pakistan," she said.
In addition to four boarding
houses, Javaid oversees 12
Presbyterian schools in Pakistan,
two of them in Lahore.
'The only hope is inculcating
values. That is what makes (peo-
ple) different human beings."
Javaid will speak Thursday at
Amelia Plantation Chapel, 36
Bowman Road. Her presentation
is the second in the church's "Salt

Pakistani urges


'Christian values'


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
The path to peace will come
through Christian education and
fair elections, said the executive
director of the Presbyterian
Education Board in Pakistan.
'Transforming human beings
into better human beings" comes
by "inculcating Christian values,"
Veeda Javaid said, adding, "We
believe strongly that the key to
bring peace here is to have fair
elections."
Javaid will speak on Thursday
at Amelia Plantation Chapel.
"We were hoping that after the
elections things will go fine."
Instead, "the situation is going
from bad to worse," she said.
'That is how things are" in the
aftermath of Benazir Bhutto's
assassination Dec. 27. Following
the former prime minister's mur-
der, the government delayed elec-
tions, now scheduled for next
month.
Bhutto was a "beacon of hope
for all of us," Javaid -said about the
slain opposition party leader who
received her education in Catholic
and Anglican institutions.
Her death is a "national
tragedy" with international impli-
cations, Javaid said.
When Bhutto ended eight
years in exile, expectations height-
ened that Pakistan would move
clbser toward democracy and
away from dictatorship.
Dictators took control of
Pakistan beginning in 1973. "If the
American government had not
been supportive of the dictator
government, things would be dif-
ferent," Javaid said.
"Your country was supporting
the dictator against the Russian
government, Javaid `ati
Demrn=raey''.lle'd'back. ':Tt
is the truth historically."
DemocrAcy comes through the
people of the country, not "from
where you are," Javaid said. "How
can we ignore the power of the
people which is here?" she said.
Javaid, a wife and mother with
degrees in science, math and busi-
ness, has the ability to access free-
dom and democracy in the West.

"I am a green card holder. I

But, she said, "My preference is to
bring a difference here."
Presbyterian missionaries
raised Javaid's mother, who was
an orphan. Her mother graduat-
ed from a Presbyterian school and
became a teacher. Javaid also
received' her education from
Christian schools.
"My mother always wanted me
to give two years of my life" to the
Presbyterian schools, "to pay my
debt" to the school, she said.
Still, her position makes her
no less vulnerable. "Anyone and
everyone" in Pakistan lives with
the threat of being killed by a sui-
cide bomb.
She and her colleagues at the
Presbyterian Education Board
continue with conviction, Javaid
said.
"We believe, 'It is only a day to
die,"' meaning one day to die, she
said. "Why die daily? So we do
not live in fear. God is with us."

ing as a professional Christian
woman in a Muslim country," he
said. Javaid's presentation will
open "a window on a world event,"
he said.
As the world's attention focus-
es on Pakistan, bordered by Iran
and Afghanistan, 'This is the
worst time in the history of our
country through which we are
passing," Javaid said.
"When my father's grandfather
was converted, Christians and
Muslims were living side by side,"
she said.
A turning point in society came
in 1972, when Pakistan's educa-
tion became nationalized with the
government controlling more than
3,000 schools. "Christian witness
diminished," she said. There was
an "uprising of the Taliban." For
30 years a mostly pro-Taliban gen-
eration became a "mushroom
group," Javaid said.
Their schools, "the majority of
which prepare (students) for jihad
and holy war," grew from 78 to
20,000 mosque schools today. For
Christian schools, "there is no
comparison," she said. 'That is
our challenge."
In 1998, Gen. Pervez
Musharraf, president of Pakistan
who graduated from a
Presbyterian college, denational-
ized the schools. Today, the gov-
ernment does not interfere in the
work of Christian schools, Javaid
said.
Many Muslims "prefer send-

have to clear several obstacles
first. Presbyterian schools target
poor, rural minority males and
females. 'There is so much pover-
ty. So much of hunger," she said.
Pakistan has a 23 percent lit-
eracy rate for females, lower in
rural areas, Javaid said. The pop-
ulation growth, at 6 percent, "is
so much on the high side," she
said, noting 160 million people live
in Pakistan.
Added to the social challenges,
political turmoil and unrest direct-
ly influence the education board's
work. "We still have not gotten
our students back," she said,
explaining that a suspected bomb-
ing near one of the boarding
schools created panic. As a result,
all parents had not returned their
children to resume classes.
Despite the daily uncertainty
and instability within her country,
Javaid affirms her commitment to
educating the disadvantaged
there.
"Weelive on hope, trust and
faith that one day this will be a
better Pakistan," she said.

MURDER Continued from 1A
member.
Anderson was a native of Millen,
Ga., and graduated from
Fernandina Beach High School in
1948. She had lived at her Stanley
Drive home for almost 50 years.
Friends said her husband, Billy
Anderson, died years ago.
Betty Anderson retired from the
Nassau County school system in
1992 after 30 years working as a
secretary and bookkeeper, mostly at
Southside Elementary.
Patrick did not have much of a
criminal record, according to
Fernandina Beach Police Chief Jim
Hurley. There were records of delin-
quent child support in Georgia and
a charge of criminal trespassing in
Cobb County, Ga., in 2003, Hurley
said.
Patrick had been employed by, a
local restaurant but was not believed

Neighbors said Anderson was
providing food and small cash hand-
outs to Patrick, but had recently
started to turn him down because
she was concerned about how he
was using the money.
Patrick was described as a shy,
quiet person who rarely left the
house and kept to himself. One
neighbor said she thought he had
been in a motorcycle accident a few
years ago and was physically
impaired for a time.
In recent months Patrick could
not drive and rarely left the house
while a sister, who used to live in the
home, sometimes brought him food
and cigarettes, a neighbor said. She
said -he was disheveled and she
could smell alcohol on his breath.
Patrick's attorney, Assistant
Public Defender Brian Morrissey,
could not be reached for comment

TALLAHASSEE Amendment
1, the proposed constitutional
amendment on Florida property
taxes, does not target relief to those
who need it most, perpetuates an
inequitable system and exacerbates
the tax shift to those taxpayers who
have suffered the most. This is the
conclusion of Florida TaxWatch,
which released its analysis of the
amedindment that will be considered
'by voters on Jan. 29.
The report, "Amendment 1 on
Property Taxes Is Not True
Reform and Is Likely to Do More
Harm than Good," reveals a flaw in
the amendment that would allow
local governments to immediately
recoup any lost revenue that tax-
payers would gain under the
amendment.
The report also states that the
"portability" provision may well run
afoul of the U.S. Constitution,
according to the expert constitu-
tional advice commissionedby the
Legislature. Further, Florida


TaxWatch warns that passage of
the amendment could mean the
end of true property tax reform.
"Florida can, and, must, do bet-
ter," said Dominic M. Calabro, pres-
ident and CEO of the nonprofit tax-
payer research group. "Sound
advice for amending the constitu-
tion is 'when in doubt, leave it out.'
For Amendment 1, we are con-
vinced it is more than just doubt.
There is plenty of evidence that
this is not the right thing for
Florida's taxpayers and economy."
The new property tax amend-
ment falls far short of what is need-
ed, according to the report. It con-
cludes:
The plan gives most of the
relief to those who need it the least
(long-term Save Our Homes prop-
erty), while giving very little to
those that have seen their taxes
rise the most (non-homestead prop-
erty).
It will perpetuate the current
system and exacerbate the shift k'


tax burden from homestead to non-
homestead property. It will also
continue to shift tax burden to new
homeowners.
While some solution to porta-
bility is needed, there are serious
constitutional concerns about pro-
viding it.
The 10 percent cap for non-
homestead property is so high as to
be of little value to most properties.
The $9.3 billion five-year tax-
payer savings'estimate is likely
overstated. The proposal does not
restrict local governments' ability to
increase millage rates to recoup
revenue losses, thereby lessening
the savings for some and shifting
more tax burden to others.
If the voters approve this new
amendment, future attempts to
reform non-homestead property
taxes may be extremely difficult.
"This proposed amendment will
make a bad situation worse,"
According to economists quoted in
t4ie report. "It is a cure worse thai
r . ... ..,, .. .. .


the disease."
"Undoubtedly, Florida's prop.,
erty tax system is in desperate need
of reform," said Kurt Wenner,
Florida TaxWatch director of tax,
research. "Unfortunately, the;
Legislature's need to pass some-i
thing people will vote for, coupled
with. a sincere desire to help.,
Floridians who cannot afford tq
move because of higher taxes,:
resulted in a proposal that is not.
only unsatisfactory but also likely to.
be detrimental."

Swallowfork battle over;

county now owns roads


AMANDA BISHOP
Community Newspapers
After three-and-a-half years of
playing "deal or no deal," a deal
was signed and notarized Jan. 10,
officially giving ownership of
Swallowfork's roads to Nassau
County.
County Attorney David
Hallman collected checks for
$55,000 each from the town of
Callahan and Norwood "Woody"
and Delores Higginbotham, devel-
opers of the highly publicized sub-
division. In turn, the county
agreed to take over maintenance
of the subdivision's dirt roads,
which at times have been non-tra-
versable during the legal battle
that began in August 2004.
Swallowfork resident
Stephanie Hamilton has stood at
the podium at both county com-
mission and town council meet-
ings numerous times during the
past year, demanding action. Her
efforts led county officials to twice
order emergency grading of the
roads. Seeing is believing, and
she traveled to Yulee Jan. 17 to
watch Mayor Shirley Graham,
Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall, the Higginbothams and
each party's respective attorney
sign the closing documents. A
smile stayed on her face through-
out the signing.
"It's a big step, but it's not
over until we see equipment,"
Hamilton said after the signing.
She didn't have to wait long, as
the county graded the roads,
Tuesday.
Swallowfork issues first began
in 1990, when a former town coun-
cil annexed the roughly 450-acre
subdivision into the town. At the
time, county officials deeded own-


ership of Nassau Avenue, a partial
road adjacent to the subdivision,
to the town.
Upset at the condition of their
roads, Swallowfork residents
unanimously approved a referen-
dum to de-annex the community
during the 1996 general election,
which technically placed it
back within the county's jurisdic-
tion. But county officials said
they never received proper
notice of the de-annexation and a
lawsuit disputing the ownership
of the roads was filed in 2004.
The subdivision lacks proper
drainage and has flooded
numerous times during the legal
battle.
Now Hamilton and county offi-
cials hope to get the situation
under control.
"Drainage needs to be
addressed, roads will be graded,"
Marshall said after the closing.
She added, 'The board is very
excited that this is over."
For Graham, it's a relief
to be through with Swallowfork
and be able to address other pri-
orities within the town. "It's
been a long time coming, and
I'm glad it's over," she said.
one more hurdle we don't
have."
And it's a huge weight off the
Higginbothams' shoulders as well,
who felt "good" once the docu-
ments were signed.
As for the future of
Swallowfork, Hallman said the
commission will set a meeting
with Swallowfork residents to dis-
cuss the county's intentions for
the roadways "as soon as possible;
definitely before the end of
February."

'The sacredness of life' r


Jan. 22 marks the 35th year of the Supreme
Court decision of Roe v. Wade, which has
proven relentlessly throughout the years to be
an abhorrent miscarriage of justice against
both the unborn and post-abortive individuals.
In Duval County alone, the Florida Vital
Statistics Annual Report for the year 2006
(www.flpublichealth.com) reflects 8,529 "induced
terminations of pregnancy" (provisional number of
4,489 terminations for January through June of
2007). Statewide, the loss totals 95,586 for 2006
(provisional number of 49,804 for January through
June of 2007). These losses do not reflect other
means of terminations, for example those from the
"morning after" pill.
"Personal choice" comprises 98 percent of the
reasons given in 2006 for deciding on an "induced
termination" which aberrantly (to some individu-
als) exceeds the combined reasons of "physical
condition," "mental condition" or "abnormal fetus."
It is no wonder that post-traumatic stress disorder
as it relates to abortion exists in exponential dimen-
sions, not only among the post-abortive women, but
anyone affected by an abortion (i.e., father, grand-
parent).
This is such a complex issue that many politi-
cians and spiritual leaders have spoken out, and
continue to do so, on this crisis. Most notably, the
beloved and respected Pope John Paul II addresses

this in The Gospel of Life given on March 25, 1995.
'The sacredness of life gives rise to its inviolabil-
ity, written from the beginning in man's heart, in
his conscience.
"Some people try to justify abortion claiming
that the result of conception, at least up to a certain
number of days, cannot yet be considered a person-
al human life. But in fact, from the time that the
ovum is fertilized, a life is begun which is neither
that of the father nor the mother; it is rather the life
of a new human being with his own growth. It
would never be made human if it were not human
already. This has always been made clear, and ...
modern genetic science offers clear confirmation.
It has demonstrated that from the first instant there
is established the program of what this living being
will be: a person, this individual person with his
characteristic aspects already well determined."
This is not a "new" concept. John Paul II further
states:
"From its first contacts with the Greco-Roman
world, where abortion and infanticide were widely

County needs a


tree law, but...

Nassau County Commissioners have
backed off yet again from approving an
ordinance that would limit cutting of
trees throughout the county.
We have a tree law covering Amelia Island, but
that failed to stop the clearcutting of a swath of
trees on the northeast corner of Amelia Island
Parkway and ALA to make way for yet another
shopping center.
We recognize the political risks for commis-
sioners in approving a tree ordinance, and three
of them -Jim B. Higginbotham, Tom Branan and
Marianne Marshall are up for election this year.
We also recognize the problems with the pro-
posed Natural Resources Protection law. It was
overly complicated and overly comprehensive.
What began as a simple tree law was expanded
to encompass wetlands buffers, sea turtles and
historic and archaeological issues. Even though
these were previously included in separate county
laws, they confused the matter.
The tree law also began as a means of preserv-
ing live oaks and canopy trees and soon came to
include a long list of trees with an even longer list
of regulations and punishments for failure to
abide by them.
In the end, this undid the effort. A parade of ,
Wpss eSde landowners told the,commissioners
they didn't believe they su-ld.-have to come to
the'e&tfltfo permission to cut down trees their
grandparents or they themselves had planted on
their property.
We agree. In fact, small rural property owners
are not the problem. Including these small prop-
erties simply invites opposition from numerous
homeowners who despise government regulation
- as well they should, since the bureaucracy that
grows to enforce such laws probably kills more
trees to make the paperwork than are ultimately
saved.
The real problem is the developer who
clearcuts land for a subdivision or shopping cen-
ter, which seems to occur every other day along
A1A in Yulee. But restraining this is not as easy as
it seems.
Much of this land is owned by Rayonier, which
farms trees on it. When Rayonier sells such prop-
erty, it harvests its crop of trees and the new
property owner starts afresh. This scars the view
from A1A, especially since developers hereabouts
have such little regard for proper landscaping.
The new natural resources law, minus the tree
ordinance, does include landscaping provisions
that will help alleviate that. We urge the commis-
sion to approve it.
We also urge the commission to revisit the
tree law. Simplify it and reduce the onerous bur-
den for small landowners. But make the terms
and penalties reasonably strict for residential and
commercial developers to deter them from simply
paving paradise to put up a parking lot.
.It's been done look at Amelia Island
Plantation and Oyster Bay as examples of pre-
serving natural beauty.
That natural beauty is part of our heritage.
Preserving it is good not just for the environment,
but for the economy as well.
We urge the commission to approve a compro-
mise tree law this year.

Accruing a

S everal days ago, I heard a neo-con whining
about how taxes screw wealthy people when
he suddenly emitted the neo-con equivalent
of a John Dean scream: "I never got a job
from a poor person."
Maybe the poor guy's just been sheltered. Trust
me, it's not a universal truth that poor people don't
employ others.
I still remember the first person who gave me a
job. I grew up on what most folks would consider
the wrong side of the railroad tracks. Literally. Mr. B
and his small family lived in an old house not far
from us. But since his house was the very first
house on the right side of the tracks, the trains prac-
tically lumbered through his kitchen and thus, Mr.
B wasn't ranked any higher on the hick town socioe-
conomic scale than my own family.
Mr. B owned a small business. When I say small,
think Lilliputian in size.
Mr. B's little storefront operation sold and
repaired typewriters and adding machines. Both
devices are extinct now, having evolved into person-
al computer keyboards and electronic calculators
that can plot the course of the space shuttle. My
hometown had a few mom and pop stores in the
downtown business district, a J.C. Penney, a small
Sears store and an S.H Kress. A smattering of gas
stations and car repair garages rounded out the eco-
nomic village of my hometown.
Mr. B wasn't a mogul and he certainly didn't
have a monopoly on the business machine business.
In other words, like most folks, he had to scratch for


wealth of kindness


a living. His store comprised
less than a thousand square
feet of space. His wife and a
daughter who was older
than me by several years but
who was the object of my
desire were his employees.
They used the family van for
deliveries and pickups.
One day, I wandered
into Mr. B's store to bask in
the presence of his goddess-
Joe Palmer like daughter and lingered
...*. just a little too long. When
Mr. B casually inquired
CUP OF about my late habit of
JOE strolling into his shop just
to say hello, I panicked.
There she was, the focus of my teenage fantasies
standing two feet from me and her father was ask-
ing me why I was mooning around his store like a
hound in a hot dog factory. Terrified, I blurted out
the first thing that came to mind. I asked him for a
job.
Mr. B seemed amused by my sudden interest in
his business and agreed to negotiate a position with
me. Essentially, I was to be his gopher. Which was
fine and dandy with me because that meant I got to
go on runs in the van with Mr. B's daughter. I
would've worked for free for that privilege but Mr. B
offered to pay me a meager salary. In those days,
minimum wage was a buck sixty-five an hour. I


think I ended up working for about half that most of
the time. I swept and mopped the shop and
rode around ini the van with either Mr. B or
his Wife or his lovely daughter picking up and drop-
ping off adding machines, typewriters and the occa-
sional cash register. I also washed windows and
painted and on weekends, I mowed and raked Mr.
B's yard.
Mr. B was a calm, generous man who couldn't
say no to anyone. The old hospital in town, long
closed, reopened for use by various county volun-
teer agencies. Mr. B offered to run one of those
agencies, which assisted poor people. The small
space he was given was a mess. The chipped paint
on the walls and windowsills needed scraping and
new paint was needed. The plaster needed repair.
Tiles on the floor were broken or missing.
Mr. B and I worked side by side until we had the
place looking spiffy. He paid me a few bucks out of
his own pocket because he wasn't given a budget to
hire help.
When I was a kid, I thought people like Mr. B
were rich. As I grew older, I realized that Mr. B was
indeed rich, just not in dollars and cents. In reality,
his family wasn't any better off financially than my
own. His wealth lay in his kindness and his willing-
ness to share what little he had with others.
I got my first job from a poor man. I'm still cash-
ing those paychecks.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Grateful parents
On Jan. 13, we experienced something that no par-
ent should ever have to endure. Our three-year-old
daughter went from being her happy, healthy self to hav-
ing a Grand Mal seizure in our living room.
Watching this nightmare unfold was unbearable, and
as my husband rushed to our daughters aid I managed
to make a frantic phone call to 911. The operator who
answered the phone was courteous, supportive and
helpful amid my screams for help and my constant
crying. She stayed on the phone with me and tried to
keep me calm as she sent for EMS.
Within two minutes EMS had arrived at-our home
and were very focused, careful and tender with our
daughter as she still was unconscious but had begun
to breathe on her own. They carried her out to the
ambulance, and while doing the necessary medical
intervention they gave her a teddy bear and were very
friendly and helped her feel more at ease with every-
thing going on around her.
We were met by the wonderful staff at Baptist
Nassau who took the greatest care and concern for our
daughter and helped make our ordeal not so frighten-
ing.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank
those who helped this family through an extremely dif-
ficult and confusing situation. They exemplify true
character and have our faith if we should ever need
them again.
To the 911 operator of the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office dispatch, thank you for your professionalism
and kindness during my phone call for help. Even
though we do not know your naye,,yo J:know,wh.oyou
are and we appreciate the wonderful job you did. To
Patrick Sorrentino, Ben Miller, Melissa Bain, Harold
Riley and Capt. Spicer of Fernandina Beach Fire
Rescue, we offer our sincere gratitude and thanks for
how quickly you acted and the genuine care you
showed us. To Greg, Catherine and Dr. Zenko at the
Baptist Nassau ER, we thank you for your patience
and for your wonderful bedside manner. To Sherry and
Angela in the CT department, thankyou for helping our
daughter through what could have been a terrifying
experience. Instead of being scared, you were able to
have fun with her and put her at ease. Your terrific atti-
tudes helped her feel calm and secure. To Rev. and Mrs.
Buddy Kalem, thank you for coming to the ER to offer
your prayers and support. You both were such a com-
fort to this family in our time of need. And last, to our
friends and family who gathered in the ER to wait for
news, to pray and to be there for all of us, we thank you
and love you.
* This community should be aware of the wonderful
people in the emergency/medical departments who
silently stand by and wait to help in any situation. I am
proud to have come from this community and I am even
more proud of its citizens.

Amendment I could spell disaster
As a former resident of California, I can tell you first-
hand what happens when a state creates a system
where property taxes don't rise with the appreciation
of property values. Disaster looms. When I moved to
California in 1981 the state's public schools were among
the top in the nation. When I left there 23 years later,
they were ranked in the bottom five in the nation. No
matter how hard teachers and schools worked, the
number of children kept rising and the amount of
money stayed the same. Consequently, class sizes
soared and the dropout rate became the highest in
the nation. Amendment 1 will cost Florida public
schools $2.8 billion over the next five years. It seems
evident to me that a financial hit of that magnitude will
devastate our school systems.
And this doesn't even begin to address the problems
that will ensue when the cities and counties of Florida
lose $9.6 billion in tax money over the next five years.
Thankfully, we live in a community where we feel safe.
I would like for Nassau County to remain a place that
is safe for its residents, as well as its many tourists and
visitors. As population grows, more services are need-
ed and we will not be able to maintain the status quo
with the proposed budget cuts that Amendment 1 will
force. Police, fire, health and other departments that
protect the public well being will not be able to deliv-
er the same service with the cuts that will be passed on
to them.
Last, changing the constitution in hopes of stimu-
lating the real estate market seems like a poorly thought
out option. The League of Women Voters states that the
amendment "may be unconstitutional because it treats
longtime homestead owners differently from new
arrivals to Florida."
I urge my fellow citizens to take a long, hard look
at this amendment to our Florida Constitution. Isn't
there a way to deliver the same "benefits" to home-
owners without amending the constitution? Changing
the constitution should not be taken lightly. In the
words of Andrew Jackson, "I am of the opinion we
ought not to be in a hurry with respect to altering the
constitution. For my part, I have no idea of speculating
in this serious manner on theory. If I agree to alterations
in the mode of administering this government, I shall
like to stand on the sure ground of experience, and not
be treading air."

Let's not tread air. We need to understand the con-
sequences in the long term of such a permanent change
and we need to look at the experiences in other states
that have tried to take this tack.

Property taxes
Many years ago, when property taxes began, they
were used for roads, garbage, water and other neces-
sities to allow people to live and travel, particularly in
urban areas. The only people who could vote were
property owners, aka the ones that were paying the
bills. Gradually more people were allowed to vote,
which is good if these are people who actually take the
time to know what they are voting on. Somehow politi-
cians decided that these funds could just as easily be
used to insure their reelections by giving away our
monies to any group or organization they deemed wor-
thy and beneficial to themselves. This is where we are
now in our local governments. These commissioners
aren't the first, as this practice has been successful
for some while at every level of government.
Taxes can be raised yearly and unless you own
property, you never know since it only affects you indi-
rectly, as in increased rent, retail prices etc.
I would like to submit the idea that property taxes
be used only as intended in the beginning and raise
sales taxes to finance all the niceties being doled out
by our city and county leaders. This way everyone
would krfbw how much it costs to fund the vote buying
and studies, which by the way apparently are rarely fol-
lowed, re the current marina situation and the condi-
tion of county roads and streets.
I'm sure it's fun to spend other people's money, but
I would like to see a change in the way it is taken from
us so that when wastes occur, everyone is affected
and everyone gets mad. Not just the property owners.
A possibility to allay the complaints about hurting the
little people is a refund check each month for those
under the poverty level as in the proposed Fair Tax ini-
tiative.
The way it's being done now "just ain't right,"

Another fish story...
I had to laugh at Ms. Anders story about her fish
(Jan. 11). Believe it or not, I own a very ugly, ceramic
fish also. I wonder if these two lonely and ugly fishes
are related?
I received my fish from a 60th birthday party from
an ex-friend as a surprise gift. Boy, was I surprised. I
thought to myself as I left the party, what am I going
to do with this ugly fish?
I decided to take it to Atlanta one Thanksgiving
and give it to our daughter and family. Told her she
could put a planter in it and set it by her pool. She left
it on her bar and every time I walked by that fish, I
would stop and say, 'That is the ugliest fish I have
ever seen." Well, needless to say, my daughter and son-
in-law have a great sense of humor and that following
Christmas they were coming to our home in
Fernandina. When we were all finished opening up
our gifts, our daughter said, 'This one is special, Mom,
and it is for you." Yep, you guessed it. That ugly fish
found its way back home to me.
The following year we presented it to our son and
his wife the look on their faces was priceless!! We
explained the story of this "fish" to them and I have had
it stored up in my closet the past two years. I am bid-


ing my time hoping our kids will soon forget about this
"fish" so that I can find him a good home again next
Christmas. There are too many laughs connected with
this poor, ugly, lonesome "fish." He has become one of
the family.

Restored faith
After a hard day's work of hauling 2x4s around,
dodging the nail gun and getting a headache from the
skill saw, I decided to go fishing. As my Jeep crabbed
along the shoreline of the south end, headed towards
the point, my attention was fitfully drawn to the blink-
ing red idiot light that read "Check Gauges." I did and
saw that the water temperature needle was pegged in
the red. My radiator had run dry.
Not knowing what to do, being surrounded by salt
water and having no fresh water with me, I did what any
normal stressed-out individual would:do, I went fishing,
hoping that some opportunity would present itself.
None did.
A while later I saw a red pickup slowly driving past.
I flagged down the truck and explained my predicament
to the two gentlemen who had been fishing all day, yet
caught nothing.
Unfortunately, they had no fresh water to spare
and soon departed. So I considered plan C, plan A
being not to run my radiator dry in the first place, and
continued to fish. Plan C was to call my wife. But I did-
n't relish the thought of having to walk all the way
back to the parking lot and then lug a bucket of water
all the way back to the point. So I again did what any
normal stressed out individual would do, I went back
to fishing.
It wasn't 20 minutes later that the same red pickup
returned. The driver and passenger, wearing a Yankees
baseball cap, had gone out of their way to bring me not
only a bucket full of water, but spare water bottles as
well.
I don't know who these two saviors are but I sin-
cerely want to thank them. They restored my faith in
mankind and I know that the next time they go fishing,
by the end of the day their buckets will be full.

Justice foranimals
Jan. 15 marked the birthday of Martin Luther King
Jr. Democratic presidential candidates are using the
occasion to debate his role in this country's landmark
civil rights legislation. I find it more interesting to
ponder whether his ideals extended beyond African-
Americans to all victims of oppression and injustice,
including animals.
Dr. King's wife, Coretta, and son, Dexter, became
vegans, rejecting all products of animal suffering,
including meat, dairy, eggs, leather and fur. Their
opposition to violence extended to the violence per-
petrated against billions of innocent, sentient animals
in America's factory farms and slaughterhouses. Their
passion for justice extended to the most oppressed liv-
ing beings on the planet animals bred, abused and
killed for food.
In his letter from Birmingham jail, Martin Luther
King cautioned that "injustice anywhere is a threat to
justice everywhere." This message truly resonated
with Coretta and Dexter Scott King. I hope that it will
do likewise with Dr. King's many other admirers.

Chris Taylor is pastor of Clear Springs
Baptist Church, Mascot, Tenn.
From the heart of our pastor, Jackie
Hayes, of Springhill Baptist Church: "It
was two years ago that our church took
the step and transitioned to elder leader-
ship. From a pastor's perspective, I could
never tell you the joy I have found in this
shared leadership approach. Of course,
we did not take this step because it
works, but because it is Biblical. In the
early church, there was no such thing as
one pastor giving leadership. Every
model is that of a team of elders giving
the necessary leadership to a local con-
gregation. For these past two years, our
elder leadership team has consisted of
Pastor Jackie Hayes, John Ketchem, Jake
Mattayaw and Bill Sullengar.
We have sensed the Lord would have
us add to our leadership team. For some
time now, we have been praying, asking
our Heavenly Father to bring to us the
one(s) he would have emerge as an elder
leader. After much prayer and much
work, our elder team recommended (on
Dec. 23) to our Springhill Church that we
embrace Galen Dunton as an elder leader.
We have spent much time with Galen and
Kym and believe God has raised Galen up
for just this purpose.
This is no small matter in the life of a
church. We must approach this with
much prayer and Christ-like honesty. We
would ask you to pray with us and for
your church that we would hear God in
this matter and move only as He leads us.
We also ask you to share with us any con-
cerns you may have as to why we should
not move forward with this decision. We
trust our God speaking through His body
in such matters. So we need to hear from
you. If you agree with us, then we will
install Galen and Kym on Jan. 20.

rhis chipmunk seems to be oblivious of the danger
in front of him and interested only in the food.
This cute illustration holds an important message
for Christians. At times we may become blinded to
the danger that surrounds our situation in our
efforts to reach a prize. We can assume that we
are all more intelligent than this cute little chipmunk
and although temptations may occasionally be
overwhelming, God has given us the strength to
endure. Looking past the immediate and seeing
the long term effects will help us make the healthy
and moral decision. God has a wonderful journey
for our lives, but to receive His blessings we must
hold tightly to His hand and follow His path.

"No problem," I answered. "Where are you

"Just down this road a ways," he said, not sure
how far I would be willing to take him.
"Ok," I replied, and with that began the drive
that would change both my life and his.
It's been quite a few years since I had the experi-
ence, but every now and then the Lord reminds me
about it just to encourage me along.
I honestly don't remember the man's name, so,
for the sake of this article, we'll just call him Joe. As
we began to drive toward Joe's house,'it didn't take
long for our conversation to turn toward the Lord.
As I remember it, it was Joe who began to ask all
the questions. Before long, we were in the middle of

pressed for time and wanting to get on with my
own stuff. "OK," I answered, sensing the Lord's
nudging, "Maybe for just a few minutes." And
with that, we entered the little place that Joe
called home. After showing me a Bible he had,
and praying together for some of the issues of his
life, I made my way back to my car and waved
goodbye.
It was then, as I began to drive away, that it hit
me. Joe's hard life and lack of personal hygiene had
left a terrible smell in my car. Now trust me, I'm by
no means a neat freak, I'm just telling you the truth.
It was pretty bad. As I chalked it up to the cost of
serving Christ and those He loves, the Lord spoke
these precious words to me.

said, "But you left My fragrance in his house."

ad given to me.
s t'i a little m serious the Bible in sever-


al places tells us about spiritual odors and fra-
grances. When our lives are open and available for
Christ to live in us and through us, somehow the
fragrance of heaven is released here on Earth. It's
that very fragrance that pleases God and changes
people.
Philippians Chapter 4:18 is just one example.
Though I'm sure I probably spend the majority of
my time emitting my own personal odor, more and
more I find myself crying out for the fragrance of
Jesus to rest upon my life.
I remain eternally grateful for the day the Lord
came into my messed up home and left His fra-
grance behind for me.

HOMES


Research is critical when buying a foreclosed home


Florida is among the leading
states in foreclosure rates across
the country, the result of falling
home prices and increasing mort-
gage payments.
As more and more foreclosed
properties enter courthouse auc-
tions, consumers may be enticed
to buy the troubles of others at
pennies on the dollar, planning
either to live in the homes them-
selves or resell the properties for
profit.
While either option is possi-
ble, the potential buyer of fore-
closed property needs to do
some basic research and consul-
tation with their real estate attor-
ney to make sure they're not buy-
ing any surprises. Even the
slightest technicality can cost the
unwary buyer tens of thousands
of dollars.
This year, as many as 2 million
American homeowners may be
hit with mortgage increases they
cannot afford. If they can't find
buyers, their lenders will fore-
close on them. The home is then
resold with the hope of recouping
the money owed.
As prices fall, homeowners
can owe more than their homes


are worth.
In many
cases, own-
ers often
turn the
property
back to their
lenders. It's
a phenome-
non that can
happen any-
Charles where, from
Kovaleski inner cities
to affluent
suburbs.
REAL Though
ESTATE such pur-
chases may
be financially attractive some
homes now sell for 20 percent
less than they did just two years
ago a new owner or investor
should not be tempted to skip the
step of a title search to save time
or money on a purchase.
Houses can be bought either
as a pre-foreclosure (when the
owner is in default but still has
the deed) or at auction (when the
lender legally has taken back the
collateral and is auctioning the
property at the courthouse).
During pre-foreclosure,


'The potential buyer offoreclosed property
needs to do some basic research and.
consultation with their real estate attorney to
make sure they're not buying any surprises. Even
the slightest technicality can cost the unwary
buyer tens of thousands of dollars.'


prospective buyers may draw
serious interest from both the
homeowner and the lender. The
owner is trying to keep afloat
financially while the lender is
looking to make a profit on a deal
that may be going bad.
Advocates of this strategy say the
potential investor stands to cre-
ate a win-win for all parties
involved. Research at this point
includes:
Evaluating the current, mar-
ket for the propertyrin question,
including possible repair costs
and the potential resale price
after you've acquired the foreclo-
sure.
Talking to the owners, if
possible, to determine their


needs and flexibility.
Gaining financial pre-qualifi-
cation. Pre-qualified buyers will
have more bargaining power; if
possible, find a lender that has
worked with foreclosures before.
Determining a work-out
deal with the owner and lender.
Closing on the property
after having the proposed deal
evaluated by a real estate attor-
ney, who will check for subordi-
nate liens, like home equity loans
and other potential problems.
There's also the option of pur-
chasing foreclosed property at
auction. Foreclosed properties
typically are sold at county court-
houses to the highest bidder.
Credit cards and personal checks


generally are not permitted, and
bidders must come with cash or
its equivalent.
Depending on the area,
investors either make large
deposits or pay the entire
amount during the auction.
While property can be purchased
for deep discounts, buyers
should take steps before arriving
at the auction. Check the rules
where you live; some places
don't allow potential buyers
inside the house before the auc-
tion starts. Other guidelines
include:
Find potential properties for
bid in the legal advertising sec-
tion in a county's newspaper of
record. That gives you time to
research a property's record
through searches at the court-
house or through the appraiser's
office.
Contact the court or your
real estate attorney to determine
what you need to bring to the
auction.
Drive by the property to
determine its condition. Many
may need basic upgrades like
new appliances, a fresh coat of
paint and new flooring.


Buying a foreclosure is not for
everyone especially a novice
with little financing. There's like-
ly to be competition, especially at
an auction, with people quite
experienced at the process.
But with home foreclosures at
the highest level since record-
keeping started nearly four
decades ago, more properties
will be sold under duress in the .;
coming year. If you're tempted to
buy, know what you're getting
into.

Housing slump spurs renovations


For the News-Leader

The dip in home sales is
spurring many home owners not
only to stay put, butto hammer out
ways to save money on their cur-
rent home.
"Instead of selling and moving in
today's housing downturn, many
are doing major remodeling work
to add square footage while at the
same time looking for ways to make
them more energy efficient," said
Pat Dotson, partner, High Grove
Communities LLC, an Atlanta-
based residential construction com-
pany, in a press release. ,
Dotson suggested that those
considering renovation pay con-
siderable attention to the windows,
insulation and roofing -three major
areas where money escapes in the
form of heating and cooling ineffi-
ciencies.
Windows
"In older houses windows can
account for, ne-,thirdc ojpth.eta4
heat escaping fromifthe house in
the winter and as much as 75 per-
cent of heat gain in the summer.


"When you go window shop-
ping look for new ones with fiber-
glass, vinyl or wood frames but
avoid aluminum, since it conducts
heat and can bring outside heat
into the house. Wood is the most
popular, is strong and insulates well.
Vinyl doesn't need to be painted or
stained. Fiberglass is relatively new
to the window market and is strong
and also insulates well but may be
pricier. The homeowner should pay
attention the rating of the glass.
Low-E coatings on the inside of the
glass reduce the UV factor, which
help decrease energy cost" As far
as the window itself, most good
quality windows today are double-
paned with some even triple-paned.
Roof
Dotson also suggests that if a
roof is being replaced opt for the
lightest color possible. Switching
from dark colored shingles to light
ones can result in a reduced sum-
mer cooling bill of some 40 per-
..gee OGk- s heatemay be absorbed in
the winner with a lightlicolored roof,
but the amount of money saved in
the hot months more than makes


up for the difference.
The home owner should ensure.
that the roofing contractor installs,.,
the attic ventilation to meet code*.
Proper ventilation enables heat to
escape, improving energy cost and,-;
the longevity of the shingles. 0 i
Insulation -,
Properly insulating a home canrr; I
save hundreds of dollars a year onp'"
energy bills. '"The type of insula-;,
tion needed depends on a number:.
of factors including climate, type
of heating (oil, gas, electricity, etc..,
and the area of the house being;.
insulated," says Dotson. "Unless a,
person fully understands the facq-;;
tors involved in insulating a home;,.
it is recommended that a profes--,:
sional conduct an energy audit prior.;:
to work being performed."
To reduce a cooling bill even
further, use light colors when paint,.,
ing the house he adds. I 'V

Be mindful

ofblood clot
I saw a gentleman this
week who had a primary
complaint of some leg
swelling and some pain
in the back of his knee. He
had undergone a knee
arthroscopy in the past but
felt he was doing very-well
with this. He just still had -
some ongoing complaints
that he was relating to his
knee.
Examination of his knee
looked good. He had no
swelling, good motion and
really no significant tender-
ness of his knee nor of his
calf. He did have some mild
swelling of his leg though.
I have seen people who
will have a primary problem
with the knee but will have
swelling more to the leg than
the knee itself. I told him
that, although his presenta-
tion was not typical of it, I did
want to have him set up for
an ultrasound study.
His ultrasound showed
that he had developed a
blood clot, known medically
as a "deep vein thrombosis"
or "DVT." He is now being
treated with blood thinners
or "anticoagulants" that he
will take for several months
until his clot is resolved.
Blood clots can form in
the lower extremities of
those persons who are inac-
tive for long periods of time,
such as seen with illness,
lower leg fractures or major
surgery, but it,can also occur
in those inactive for short
periods of time, as seen in
cross-country or cross-
Atlantic travel.
The development of a
blood clot in the leg is com-
monly associated with
swelling and pain in the calf.
Most blood clots are small
and are not life threatening
but may require hospitaliza-
tion for initial treatment.
; The more serious ones,
deep vein thromboses, can
be life threatening because
they can dislodge from the
wall of the vein and then trav-
el toward the heart and into
the lungs, causing a pul-
monary embolism, which
can be fatal.
In patients undergoing
major orthopedic surgery,
such as joint replacements,
doctors preventatively treat
these patients with blood
thinners, such as aspirin,
heparin or coumadin, to
decrease the chances of
forming these clots.
These patients are at risk
for many reasons, including
the fact that blood tends to
pool within the legs during
the surgery itself and the
fact that they are not likely to
be immediately mobile right
after surgery. Other steps
that are taken to decrease
the chances of forming a clot
include the use of compres-
sive pumps or "sequential
compression devices" that lit-
erally squeeze the legs to
keep the blood moving while
the patientis bedridden.
Patients may also wear com-
pressive stockings or hose
either in bed or once they
are up and Walking.
A patient who has had a
"knee scope" is not generally
put on anticoagulants for the
likelihood of developing a
clot is much lower. The pro-
cedure is relatively short
with less pooling of blood in
tire legs, and therefore less
likely to occur.
Also, given the fact that
patients usually are able to
get right up and begin walk-
ing the next day, their risks
are substantially reduced.
However, while it is unusual
to form a clot after an
arthroscopy, it.is certainly
possible, and you and your
doctor should be mindful of
this.

Want to turn back time? Get back into that high
school football uniform just one more time?
You can if you join the Old Timers for their annu-
al football scrimmage Feb. 2. Practices are being held
at 6:15 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at
the Ybor Alvarez sports complex on Bailey Road.
The East players from the East Side of Nassau
County--will take on the West at Yulee High School
Feb. 2 with the East donning Fernandina Be ch
High School uniforms and the West dressing out in
Yulee duds. West beat East last year by a point.'
"We got a bad taste in our mouth from last year,"
said Jody Montgomery, the East coach who has

of things went wrong butethat'gpaat of the ga
"We're out for friendly blood. We're out to deflate
their spirit."
So far, 22 players have signed on to play for the
East.
"All I need is bodies out there," Montgomery
said. "We need at least 10 more."
But Montgomery warns the game isn't for eTy-
one.
"It's full contact football," he said. "If you really
haven't ever played the game of football, it's good to
get out there early. I have to try to teach the game
in two weeks.
"It's tough. You'll get your jockstrap knocked
loose if you're not paying attention."
While it's a chance to relive those high school
memories, the game is also a fundraiser for the par-
ticipating schools.
"Instead of you just lying on the couch, we try to
provide something to bring back the glory days," said
Montgomery, a 1990 graduate of FBHS. "It's like a
family. Once you play, you're hooked. They're good
guys and we try to help the community. It's non-prof-
it."
Players pay $50 to participate and half the money
goes back to the schools that donate their equipment.
The players also receive'tickets to sell to recoup
the money they spent to participate.
They might call themselves Old Timers, but


Eric Harris is ready to snap the ball
Tuesday.

Montgomery said one of his players is a recent grad-
uate of Yulee High School. But the older set comes
out too. One player is 60.
Regardless of age, everyone has to sign a release
waiver.
"They have to sign a waiver to play and it's fnota-
rized before they even get pads," Montgomery
said.
Montgomery, who played 11 seasons before step-
ping up to take over as coach, said this will be his last
game.
"I've done everything I possibly could do in that
game," he said. "It's going on seven years coaching
now. I'm afraid it will just die and I want to it to keep
going, but I have to move on."
The Old Timers game has been played since
1983 and, each year, players hit the gridiron for just
one more shot at reliving their past. Aftefwards,
they gather at a local restaurant to lick their wounds
while old memories mingle with fresh ones.
Anyone interested in playing should contact

The host Pirate wrestlers gave up just 12
points to the Englewood Rams Tuesday,
defeating the visitors 40-12.
"We came out kind of sluggish, probably
due to a long weekend at the Flagler tour-
nament," said Mark Durr, Fernandina Beach
High School wrestling coach. "We don't
want to make excuses for our poor per-
formance because every team this time of
year is going through the same situation. If
it was easy, everyone would be doing this.
We want our kids to know it is special to be
a Pirate wrestler and our performance did-
n't1eally reflect that appreciation."
Before the match, the Pirate seniors were
recognized.
"We were happy to recognize our sen-
iors," Durr said. "Our multi-year guys, Kyle
(Owens), Chad (Livingston), Kevin (McEn-
tee), Jack (Williams), Carmine (Paolillo)
and Chris (Kremler), are very important
and special to us. They have handled adver-
sity and success with a lot of character, they
have taught our young guys a lot about what
it means to be a part of Pirate wrestling.
"We are also really pleased that Mitch
(Haley), Tanner (Lee) and Max (Wohlfarth)
came out this year if only for one year. They
have contributed to the program. The coach-
es are always joking with Mitch and asking
where he has been for three years. Mitch
epitomizes what it means to be a Pirate
wrestler. He has a heart as big as Texas and
a never-give-up attitude. He has been fun
to watch and to work with this season."
Nick Morf (103 pounds) and Owens
(125) won their matches by forfeit Tuesday.


Livingston (130) pinned Drummond in
the second period; McEntee (140) pinned

(heavyweight) pinned Conner Lawrence in
3:16.
Last weekend, the Pirates competed in a
32-team tournament at Flagler Palm Coast.
"Jack Williams had the most success for
At at the Flagler tournament," Durr said.

pound weight class. He wrestled with some
good competition. We're hoping he takes
this momentum with him into districts."
Garret Sharpe (130) took third place in

The YHS Hornets wrestled Columbia in
Lake City Tuesday.
"We had a shot to beat them on their
senior night, but came up a little flat, and lost
48-30," Coach Michael Carty said. "I knew
there would be three key matchups and, if
we won two of the three, we'd win. We were

SPORTS MEDICINE
GREGORY SMITH, M.D.
.. iwi-,--


Be mindful

ofblood clot
I saw a gentleman this
week who had a primary
complaint of some leg
swelling and some pain
in the back of his knee. He
had undergone a knee
arthroscopy in the past but
felt he was doing very well
with this. He just still had
some ongoing complaints
that he was relating to his
knee.
Examination of his knee
looked good. He had no
swelling, good motion and
really no significant tender-
ness of his knee nor of his
calf. He did have some mild
swelling of his leg though.
I have seen people who
will have a primary problem
with the knee but will have
swelling more to the leg than
the knee itself. I told him
that, although his presenta-
tion was not typical of it, I did
want to have him set up for
an ultrasound study.
His ultrasound showed
that he had developed a
blood clot, known medically
as a "deep vein thrombosis"
or "DVT." He is now being
treated with blood thinners
or "anticoagulants" that he
will take for several months
until his clot is resolved.
Blood clots can form in
the lower extremities of
those persons who are inac-
tive for long periods of time,
such as seen with illness,
lower leg fractures or major
surgery, but it.can also occur
in those inactive for short
periods of time, as seen in
cross-country or cross-
Atlantic travel
The development of a
blood clot in the leg is com-
monly associated with
swelling and pain in the calf.
Most blood clots are small
and are not life threatening
but may require hospitaliza-
tion for initial treatment.
The more serious ones,
deep vein thromboses, can
be life threatening because
they can dislodge from the
wall of the vein and then trav-
el toward the heart and into
the lungs, causing a pul-
monary embolism, which
can be fatal.
In patients undergoing
major orthopedic surgery,
such as joint replacements,
doctors preventatively treat
these patients with blood
thinners, such as aspirin,
heparin or coumadin, to
decrease the chances of
forming these clots.
These patients are at risk

pool within the legs during

that are taken to decrease

include the use of compres-
sive pumps or "sequential
compression devices" that lit-
erally squeeze the legs to
keep the blood moving while
the patient is bedridden.
Patients may also wear com-
pressive stockings or hose
either in bed or once they
are up and walking.
A patient who has had a
"knee scope" is not generally

cedure is relatively short

N chilly weekend for local fish-

species of game fish that
warms up its feeding habits when the
weather is less than pleasant. Striped
bass are running from the 1-95 bridge
on the St. Marys River to the small
town of St. Marys. Look for striped
and sunshine bass in the Nassau
River, where some of the best fishing
comes from the 1-95 to US 17 bridge.

Surf fishermen will need to get an
early start Saturday and Sunday
mornings with a high tide arriving at

Amelia Island. Look for some of the
best surf action to come from the
small rock jetties located at the south-

trout, puppy drum, blues and a few
redfish are running. Beach whiting
are running during the high falling

During the winter fishing season, "

some of the best surf fishing action
comes while fishing on the bottom
with a fish finder setup and fresh

blues weighing to three pounds.
Bass guide Jim Allen reports
Rodman Reservoir has been drawn
down some 11 feet and is producing
good catches of largemouth bass.
The draw down period will last until
March 1, while the best bass fishing
should begin during the first portion
of February. During the draw down
period, fishermen must practice catch
and release fishing only.

For the News-Leader
Q ueen of Hearts, the fun-lov-
ing female vocal group that
performed for a full house
last year in Fernandina
Beach, eturns for an encore per-
formance on Saturday, Feb. 2.
The foursome of April Amick,
Ellen Britton, BethAnne Clayton,
and Helen Lewis Moore each a tal-
ented singer/songwriter with her
own career cherish their time
together to swap stories, co-write
songs and create fresh musical
arrangements for their original
tunes.
Queens Ellen and Helen call
Nashville their home. When they're
not busy writing, Britton one of
Nashville's premiere guitar instruc-
tors gives lessons to up-and-com-
ing artists. Moore spends many
hours a week at the nursing home
caring for her mom, visiting with
and performing for other residents
there as well; she also volunteers at
the local animal shelter, and finds
some stress relief in creating
exquisitely elaborate Christmas
crafts and decorations.
April Amick hails from Leesville,
S.C., where she holds a day job with
a small printing company and tours
with Second Nature, one of the most
popular party bands in the
Southeast, as their lead singer. And
"Queen B" (BethAnne Clayton) is
the real deal. The daughter of
Tommy Clayton who toured with
the group Sons of the Purple Sage
with the Lone Ranger, BethAnne
began singing four part harmonies
with her sisters at the age of four.
From her home base at the Jersey
shore, she now fronts her own band
and performs regularly at a variety
of venues.

Queen of Hearts' Ellen Britton, April Amick, BethAnne Clayton and
Helen Lewis Moore, from left, swap stories and songs over coffee.

St.Petersconcert
Queen of Hearts lend their beautiful voices to blend unique songs and
outstanding harmonies with great chemistry. They'll perform at the Parish
Hall of St. Peter's Episcopal Church (corner of Eighth and Atlantic) on
Saturday, Feb. 2. Seating is limited for the 8p.m. show; doors open at
7:15 p.m. Tickets for the performance are $15 and may be purchased in
advance from series sponsor First Coast Community Bank, 1750 South
14th St., or at St. Peter's Church Administration Office. Call Mark and
Donna Paz Kaufman at 277-2664 for more information. For a sneak pre-
view, visit www.QueenofHearts.info.


Hearts came about almost 10 years
ago after the four women, each a
successful singer/songwriter in her
own right, decided to share the
stage for an "in-the-round" at
Nashville's legendary Bluebird
Caf&. During the show, they couldn't
help themselves, jumping in to har-
monize on each others songs even
though they hadn't rehearsed
before-hand. Afterwards, while sell-


ing their solo CDs, a lot of people
came up to ask if they had a CD as a
foursome. That was when they real-
ized, "Hey, maybe we've stumbled
on to something here!"
According to Queen H, "Even to
this day there is just this magic that
happens when we sing together.
There is nothing more inspirational

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Heavy on wistful melody and easy on dialogue, "Breaking
Up is Hard to Do," featuring the songs of Neil Sedaka, suc-
ceeds in pulling off a ninja-style theatrical achievement.
Rousing ensemble numbers and stealth performances by
two of its actors carry
the production through a
delicate beginning into a
dynamic finale.
The understated pro-
duction takes the audi-
ence on a musical retro-
spective, featuring
Sedaka songs that span
the end of the doo-wop
era and cross over the
threshold into disco.
The play showcases Michelle Scully and Sarah
16 Sedaka songs, includ- Spigelman in Alhambra
ing "Stupid Cupid," Dinner Theatre's "Breaking
"Where the Boys Are," Up is Hard to Do."
"Happy Birthday Sweet
Sixteen," "Calendar
Girl," "Laughter in the
Rain," "Love will Keep
Us Together" and the
title song.
Suitable for all audi-
ences, the show will
appeal especially to
those who grew up in
the late 1950s and early
1960s, or aficionados of
those decades, when Tony Triano and W.C. Green,
most of the songs were above, and Triano with Patti
recorded. Eyler, below.
Set in 1960, the story
unfolds in the Catskill
Mountains at Esther's
Paradise Resort. Marge
Gelman, jilted at the
altar, goes on her pre-
paid honeymoon taking
along dimwitted best
friend Lois Warner to
help her get over her
troubles, That primary

eventually converge into ALHAMBRA DINNERTHEATRE
one overriding theme, 'You don't find love. Love finds you."
Alhambra newcomers Sarah Spigelman as Marge and
Michele Scully as Lois set the musical on steadyfooting with
their acting and vocals. Scully's high-pitched Brooklyn
accent dissolves into surprisingly rich vocals. Spigelman
reaches every high note. The combined results equal satisfy-
ingly harmonious duets delivered by the two.
Patti Eyler's subdued performance, however, ironically
thrusts the play out of its meek beginning. Eyler portrays
resort proprietor Esther Simowitz. The character adds depth
and substance to the plot after the audience learns that she is
more than an unidentified voice broadcast over the resort's
public announcement system.
Eyler's waddling gait, exaggerated accent and support

height that sustains the play
from conflict to resolution.
D. Garrett Smith, who plays
the geeky Gabe Green, joins
Eyler in rendering an equally
convincing performance. He
embodies his character's clumsy
lack of confidence, garnering
audience sympathy as the anti-
hero and foil to the egotistical
Del Delmonaco, the resort's
headline act and aspiring record-

Green gives a consistent per-

preting him with an Elvis per-

priate, but predictable, a repeat
of Gaston in the Alhambra's
"Beauty and the Beast."

supporting role as the resort's
