Local soldier hurt




in Iraq bomb blast


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
A 20-year-old U.S. soldier from
Fernandina Beach is in Walter
Reed Army Hospital in Washing-
ton, D.C., recovering from serious
injuries suffered in a bomb blast in
Iraq that has gotten national media
attention.
U.S. Army Cpl. Taylor Harter,
son of restaurateur Lisa Harter,
has a broken foot, broken ankle,
broken nose, sprained leg, broken
teeth, back injuries and suffered
lacerations and a concussion in
the attack Saturday, his mother
said. But he's alive.
"I'feel like one of the luckiest
moms his gunner was rinot so
lucky," Lisa Harter said Wednes-
day.
The gunner was killed and
three of the crew, including Harter,
injured when their armored vehi-
cle rolled over a homemade'bomb
buried beneath a road in Arab
Jabour, southeast of Baghdad,
according to a New York Times
report Tuesday.
The Pentagon confirmed it was
the first combat death involving
an MRAP, a new Mine-Resistant
Ambush-Protected armored vehi-
cle deployed in Iraq and intended
to reduce casualties from'roadside
bombs.
Pentagon Press Secretary
'Geoff Morrell said it is still not
clear whether the gunner died as
a result of the explosion or vehicle
rollover, the Associated Press
reported Wednesday. The gunner
sits atop, the vehicle, while the rest
of the crew. i.in ,an inter al corn-
partmeht.
"That attack has not... caused
anyone to question the vehicle's
lifesaving capacity' To the contrary,
the attack reaffirms their surviv-
ability," Morrell was quoted by the
AR


I feel like one of the luckiest moms -
his gunner was not so lucky.'

exploded under his vehicle. Gas station owner Ray Mullis is proud of, but worried about his
grandson. Lisa Harter proudly displays a Blue Star Flag at La Bodega restaurant on Third
Street to honor her son's service.


Lisa Harter's verdict is in: "I
guess that tank worked," she said.
Her son called from a Baghdad
hospital Saturday evening. Harter
said, 'To hear his voice and to
know you have all your limbs and
everything's there...."
Taylor Harter was flown to
Germany for medical treatment


.and then to Walter Reed on
Tuesday. -
Lisa Harter was grateful to be
traveling Thursday to Washington
to see her son. "I can't wait to see
him," she said the day before.
"He's a hero. He's back here."
Harter will receive a Purple
Heart and perhaps other medals.


But the focus now is on recovery
from his injuries. -,,
"It's been quite overwhelming,"
Lisa Harter said of the communi-
ty response.
"I know he's on every pr yer
list on this island."

City says


no to new


holiday
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners voted Tuesday to deny city
employees an additional paid holi-
day for Presidents' Day.
The ordinance to recognize the
Feb. 11 holiday would have affect-
ed only exempt or salaried workers
employed by the city.
Commissioners' reasons for vot-
ing 4-1 against the code amend-
ment included uncertain local eco-
nomic conditions and a possible
widespread recession. They also
suggested that city employees have
enough holidays.
Vice Mayor Joe Gerrity said he
would not support the new holi-
day because city employees
already enjoy a generous holiday
schedule.
"The last thing we need to do is
give out extra days off like they're
candy'," he said. "We need to
address what we're doing in 2008
and not what we've done in the
past.
'"Where I come from, salaried
people work until the job is done,"
he added.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor said after the meeting
that many communities mirror the
fact that Presidents' Day is recog-
nized as a federal and state holi-
day. He noted that the bargaining
unit of the United Brotherhood of
Carpenters and Joiners, which
includes streets, utility and admin-
istrative employees, asked for the
extra holiday.
According to the city of
Fernandina" Beach website
(www.fbfl.us), city employees
get 11 paid holidays, including-the
day after Thanksgiving arnd
Christmas Eve day. They also
receive "paid time off," which is a
combination of vacation and sick
time that is accrued each pay
period.

Mayport residents, shrimpers

ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES
Community Newspapers
No cruise terminal for the his-
toric Mayport Fishing Village -
that was the overwhelming mes-
sage Mayport residents and prop-
erty owners delivered to officials at
a town hall meeting Jan. 17.
More than 100 people many
wearing T-shirts with anti-cruise
emblems attended the meeting
called by Jacksonville City
Councilor Ray Holt at the Marine


Science Center to address con-
cerns about a proposed cruise ship
terminal on Ocean Boulevard.
'We are trying very early on to
be extremely proactive and talk to
the community before there's even
a deal on the table," said Holt, who
has been Mayport's representative
for approximately six.months.
Jacksonville Port Authority
Executive Director Rick Ferrin,
along with other Jaxport officials,
attended the meeting to give more
information about the proposal, lis-


ten' to concerns and answer ques-
tions.
"We're here to dispel rumors
and be as truthful and forthright
with you as possible," Ferrin said.
He explained the port is in the
preliminary process of conducting
a study, which has three main com-
ponents.
First, the port had to assess if
there was enough property to build

Screening can help prevent colon cancer


i KENNETH L. NOLLER. MD
American College of Obstetricians and
Gynecologists

Tens of thousand of
Americans are diagnosed with
colorectal cancer (or colon can-
cer) each year. Women and men
are equally affected by this slow-
Sgrowing cancer that targets the
cells in the colon and rectum. It
starts when polyps often benign
growths that develop in the colon
turn cancerous.
While the cause of colon can-
cer is unknown, age is a factor
that increases risk, with approxi-
mately 90 percent of colorectal
S cancers occurring in people older
than 50. Women are also at
5 ;M increased risk if they have a first-
degree relative younger than 60
(or two or more first-degree rela-
tives of any age) with colorectal
S cancer or polyps; have had col-
orectal cancer or polyps them-


selves; have
had bowel
disease, such
as chronic
Ulcerative
4 colitis,
inflammato-
ry bowel dis-
ease, or Crohn's disease; or have
a family history of certain types
of colon problems or colon can-
cer.
Colorectal cancer deaths
decreased by more than 2 per-
cent from 2002 to 2004, likely due
to an increase in screening rates.
Unfortunately, only about 50 per-
cent of women are screened
according to the most current
guidelines.
ACOG recommends that all
women should be screened for
colorectal cancer at age 50 or
earlier for African-American
women and those with high-risk
factors using one of five meth-


ods.
According to ACOG,
colonoscopy is the preferred
method for colorectal cancer
screening because it allows for
better visualization of the whole
colon surface. The physician
uses a lighted instrument called a
colonoscope to examine the
entire colon and rectum. Patients
are sedated for the procedure,
which generally lasts 20 to 30
minutes. Any pre-cancerous
polyps that are found can be
removed during the examination.
Women should plan to have a
colonoscopy once every 10 years.
Women may choose to have a
.fecal occult blood test (FOBT) or
fecal immunochemical test (FIT).
Stool samples are taken at home
for several days and then
returned to a lab to be checked
for hidden blood. They must be
performed annually. Your doctor
may also recommend flexible sig-


moidoscopy every five years in
addition to the annual FOBT or
FIT.
Flexible sigmoidoscopy uses a
lighted flexible tube to examine
the lower colon. Polyps can some-
times be removed during flexible
sigmoidoscopy. Sedation may or
may not be necessary. Women
who choose this procedure
should have it every five years.
Women can also be screened
using a double contrast barium
enema. Patients are given an
enema using contrast dye. X-rays
of the colon and rectum are then
taken. Women should have this
exam once every 5 years.
Proper screening can help
prevent colon cancer. Get
screened using the method that
you are most comfortable with
and most likely to complete.
Kenneth L. Noller, MD, is the
president ofthe American College
of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 2008 NEWS News-Leader


MAYPORT Continued from LA
mine if it would be physically and
operationally feasible to put a ter-
minal in Mayport, and Jaxport
needs a 20-year commitment
from a cruise line.
"We needed three stars to
align," he said.
But there is currently not a
cruise line willing to sign a 20-
year contract, so Ferrin said the
study is at a "standstill."
"It does not appear we are
going to get a commitment from
the cruise line anytime soon," he
said.
He also said'that Jaxport has
not purchased and has no cur-
rent plans to purchase any prop-
erty in the area.
Many of the residents in atten-
dance said their primary con-
cerns are whether commercial
shrimp boats were in jeopardy.
Ferrin emphasize that if plans
move forward, the community,
and especially shrimpers, will be
involved in the process.
"Shrimpers will be taken into
consideration at every junction
of the plan," he said.
"Shrimp boats are important
to us because it is one of the
things that makes Mayport
attractive."
Holt added that if the terminal
proposal comes to fruition, he
will "putthe full force of his office
in place" to ensure that shrimpers
are taken into account.
Potential use of eminent
domain was another key concern
for property owners, who said
they fear that they will beforced
out of their homes.
When asked if eminent
domain will be used if the cruise
terminal is built, Ferrin replied.
"At this point in time we have no
idea. I cannot tell you no. I will
not tell you yes, either."
Ferrin did assure residents
that the recreational boat ramp in
the village would not be shut
down.
He also said that Jaxport,
which recently took over St.
Johns River ferry operations, did
not do so as a "ruse" to attain
property for a cruise terminal.



SCHOOLS Continued from 1A
develop the tests, James
Rodeffer, director of secondary
education, said.
But the school district would
need "better support" from the
state to implement a merit pay'
plan. "We need some help here
with this," Ruis said.
"It's been a real hassle with
DQE,',he said, aotingitlhe depart*i-,,
ment had not approved the. dis- '-
trict's plan. .
"We really have no direction
from them. So I don't know how
we can proceed," board member
Gail Cook said.
MAP "has a lot of holes,"
Assistant Schools Superintendent
Edward Turvey said. 'The things
they think up in Tallahassee can't
be equally implemented" within
every district.
"We want it to work," Ruis
said. "We want it to be fair and
equitable and reflect what's being
taught."

County sets meetings



for public involvement


3 hearings on proposed tree ordinance


Nassau County has set three
meetings for residents to learn
about a proposed a tree protection
and lan'd-clearing ordinance for
application throughout the unin-
corporated county.
Nassau County Commission-
ers will take public comment on
the proposal:
Feb. 4,7 p.m., Callahan Multi-
Purpose Facility, 543350 US 1,
Callahan
Feb. 7, 7 p.m., Peck Center,
516 S. 10th St., Fernandina Beach
Feb. 21,7 p.m.,James S. Page
Governmental Complex, 96131
Nassau Place, Yulee
Anyone interested is invited to
be present and heard at all meet-


ings. Comments also can be
phoned to 491-3613 or e-mailed to
county Planning Director Walter
Fufidio at wfufidio@nassaucoun
tyfl.com.
Nassau County Commission-
ers have temporarily postponed
consideration of amendments to
the current tree protection ordi-
nance that is only applicable to
Amelia Island. A draftirig team
worked over six months with the
development community, environ-
mental activists and the general
public and achieved consensus on
many issues.
Two major issues remain for
resolution, according to Fufidio:
'The maintenance of a viable tim-


ber industry without the inadver-
tent creation of a free pass for
developers; and post-development
protection after property has been
conveyed to an individual home-
owner."
Much of the public*support for
the tree law ktems from the
clearcutting of trees, which often
occurs when a timberland owner
harvests trees before selling the
property for residential or com-
mercial development.
Much of the public opposition
to the proposed law comes from
individual homeowners who object
to government regulation of their
ability to cut trees on their prop-
erty.


8 hearings set on Vision 2032 proposal


There will be eight public hear-
ings this year to solicit comment
on the "Nassau County Vision
2032" plan approved by Nassau
County Commissioners at the
behest of the Amelia island-
Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber
of Commerce.
At a meeting in Callahan on
Jan. 16, members of the steering
committee for Nassau County
Vision 2032 volunteered their own
time and material support to the
upcoming public workshops and
got to work on final organization-
al details.
The first four meetings are set
for:
7 p.m. Feb. 18, Yulee High
School, 85375 Miner Road, Yulee
7 p.m. Feb. 19, Hilliard
Middle-Senior High School, 1
Flashes Ave., Hilliard
7 p.m. March 18, Fernandina
Beach High School, 435 Citrona

7 p.m. April 21, Bryceville
Community Center, 7280 Motes
Road, Bryceville
7 p.m. April 22, West Nassau
High School, 1 Warrior Drive,
Callahan
'These public input sessions
are vital to the success of this
*process," said Regina Duncan,
president of the Amelia Island-
Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber
of Commerce. "Citizen involve-
ment will provide a solid founda-
tion for identifying the values and
priorities of the Nassau County
community."
Steering committee members
will facilitate each of the first three
meetings, which will, be interac-
tive. This will be an opportunity
for any and all citizens of Nassau
County to off6r input on the future
of the county.

Morrell told the Associated

Despite the size of the explosion, he

bombs have
been the single deadliest weapon
used against American forces in
Iraq, the New York Times reported.
According to the Times, Defense
Secretary Robert M. Gates'holiday
message to the troops said, 'To
ensure that troops have the best
protection available on the battle-
field, MRAPs became the military's
highest acquisition priority, and
thousands of these vehicles are in
production and en route to theater"
The vehicles have distinctive,
armored V-shaped hulls that are
designed to deflect the force of the
explosion from roadside bombs out
and away from the vehicle, sparing
the occupants inside, according to
the Times. The vehicles are much
bigger than Humvees, standing 12
feet high and weighing up to 18
tons.
Associated Press reported there
now are more than 2,225 of the
vehicles in service in Iraq and
Afghanistan, and the Pentagon is
working to buy as many as 12,000
more. MRAPs cost between
$500,000 and $1 million, depend-
ing on their size and how they are
equipped.

King seeks election


to sheriff's office


Retired Nassau County
Sheriff's Capt. Richard King has
announced his candidacy for the
Republican nomination for Nassau
County sheriff.
There are four declared candi-
dates for sheriff, including Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves, retired Capt,
Connie Johnson, Fernandina
Beach Police Capt. Jim coe and
King. Coe is a Demotcrat: the oth-
ers are Republicans.
King is a U.S. Army veteran,
having served in the Army
Security Agency, and has 37 years
of law enforcement experience.
He retired from the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office with
25 years of service, served in the
federal court system for five years
and served seven years with the
Nassau County Sheriff's office,
where he was director of the
Nassau County Detention Center
at the time of his retirement in
2005.
King is a member of the
Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5-
30 and is a past president. He is
also a member of the Nassau
County Planning and Zoning
Board, and a past chairman of that
board, and has accumulated 54


credit hours
toward an AAS
degree in crim-
inology.
King said he
wants "to bring
a new level of
professional law
enforcement to
King the depart-
ment, which
will restore the
morale and pride of the members
of the department and result in
improved service to the citizens
of Nassau County."
He also said he "will prioritize
the spending of taxpayer budget
dollars to ensure they are spent
where they can most benefit the
citizens of Nassau County."
King is a 35-year resident of
Nassau County. He has been mar-
ried to his wife, Carol, for 46 years,
and they have two children, four
grandchildren and five great-great
grandchildren. They are members
of First Baptist Church of Callahan
where he is active in the children's
ministry.
The Republican primary elec-
tion is scheduled Aug. 26, and the
general election Nov. 4.


Crist seeks vote for I


TALLAHASSEE With just
days until Election Day, Gov.
Charlie Crist continues to criss-
cross the state encouraging vot-
ers to vote Yes on 1 to lower their
property taxes.
"If we don't pass meaningful
tax reform with this measure we
may never get another chance,"
Crist said. "Florida's families have
suffered long enough and I urge
voters to cut their property taxes
by Voting yes on Amendment 1.
This plan brings real tax cuts to
real people."
Crist visited North Florida
Thursday and hosted a roundtable
with media in the Jacksonville
area. He continued on to Broward
County where he visited with a
group of senior citizens.
Visiting an area facing steep
increases in property taxes, Crist
met with Dave Murphy, a Lake
Worth homeowner who would like
to move to a smaller home. The
local property appraiser has val-
ued Murphy's home at $309,000.,
With the passage of Amendment 1,
he could save nearly $1,500 ayear
on his property taxes.
The average homeowner will
be able to take approximately
$83,000 in Save our Homes tax
benefit with them when they
move, saving about $1,500 a year
,on property taxes.
Amendment 1 would essen-
tially double a resident's home-
stead exemption and allow their
Save Our Homes tax benefits to be
transferred to a new home.
Furthermore, businesses would
receive a $25,000 exemption for
tangible personal property and

University of Florida
GAINESVILLE Candidates
seeking the Democratic presidential
nomination may start to show up in
Florida before the state's Tuesday
primary, despite being told by
national party leaders not to cam-
paign here, a University of Florida
professor predicts.
"I expect we will begin seeing
the candidates in Florida quite
soon," political science professor
Daniel A. Smith said.
-The Democratic National
Committee told the candidates to
avoid the state because the
Legislature moved up the presi-
dential primary election date to a
week before Super Tuesday Feb. 5.
But the race between Hillary Clinton
and Barack Obama has become
tighter after the Iowa caucuses and
the New Hampshire and Nevada
primary elections.
South Carolina Democrats vote
Saturday.
S 'This is Hillary's to lose, and
Florida is her firewall," Smith said.
Floridians might also see John
Edwards, who is trailing the top two.
Edwards has nothing to lose by
coming to Florida, Smith said.
Florida is even more important
to GOP contender Rudy Giuliani.
"For Rudy, it's the make or break
state because he's basically fore-
gone all the other early primaries,"
Smith said. "It's even more crucial
that he does well."
The former New York mayor
vies with U.S. Sen. John McCain,
former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt
Romney, former Arkansas Gov.
Mike Huckabee and U.S. Rep. Ron

Itwas a dark


and stormy


night...0
It's been 25 years since Scott Rice took pen in
hand or put fingers on keyboard or typewriter
or maybe he just thought about it and
devised a contest that would recognize people
who turn out bad writing intentionally.
It's called the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, in
honor, if that's the right word, of Edward George
Earl Bulwer-Lytton, who opened his novel Paul
Clifford (1830) with the comic dog Snoopy's
favorite sentence: "It was a
dark and stormy night."
Rice, an English professor
at San Jose State University,
describes his contest as "one
that pits the entrants against
the worst literary minds in
bookdom." He created the
competition to fill a need.
After all, he said, "Most liter-
ary contests are inherently
unfair, favoring talent, sensi-
Phil bility and intelligence....
udgins. They're callously neglectful of-

FROM THE ight b- a ors if thb ad'
ROMTHE any craft, vision or message."
HOME For a quarter-century, the
OFFICE contest has challenged writ-
ers to craft, if that's the right
word, the worst opening line of a novel Winner of
the 2007 contest, Jim Gleeson of Madison, Wis.,
apparently has an unlisted telephone number. But
I did reach Scott Palmer, the runner-up, at his
home in Klamath Falls, Ore.
"Were you excited to win?" I asked.
"Absolutely," he said. "Who doesn't wish to be
the second worst at something in the world?"
Problem was, several of Palmer's friends didn't
know he was trying to write bad stuff. "The pre-
vailing attitude," he said, "was that everyone
thought I was a serious writer and that whatever I
sent in for submission was judged to be the worst
in the world. They thought it was a huge insult."
Even a local author didn't get the point. He tele-
phoned to encourage Palmer to keep trying.
Why would anybody strive to reach the peak,
the pinnacle, the point, the piece de resistance of
poor writing? Well, you see, Palmer spends consid-
erable time traveling he's a locomotive engineer
- and he does a lot of technical writing as nuclear
policy analyst for the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers and Trainmen. And he writes a lot of
dry stuff about nuclear meetings. So, to entertain
himself at home, he likes to dabble in bad writing.
Like this opening sentence, the second-worst in
the world in 2007:
'The Barents sea heaved and churned like a
tortured animal in pain, the howling wind tearing
packets of icy green water from the shuddering
crests of the waves, atomizing it into mist that was
again laid flat by the growing fury of the storm as
Kevin Tucker switched off the bedside light in his
Tuba City, Arizona, single-wide trailer and by the
time the phone woke him at 7:38, had pretty much
blown itself out with no damage."

Ministering

ack in the late 1980s, I covered a news story
about an investigator in the local branch of'
the Public Defender's Office. The investiga-
tor, an Englishman, was a brilliant sleuth
and one of the most interesting characters I've ever
met. But unknown to anyone, he was also an illegal
alien. Though he managed by equal parts guile and
cojones to procure a state job, the State Attorney's
Office was not impressed. He fled the country ahead
of an indictment and returned to England, where he
died some years ago.
I remember going to the Public Defender's Office
for a follow-up story the morning after their investi-
gator scrammed. Brian Morrissey asked me, "Well,
now that you've helped run my investigator out of
town, have you ever thought of becoming one your-
self?" A few days later, I was sitting in the -
Jacksonville headquarters office being interviewed
by the man I would come to know as one of the
remaining great and colorful bullfighters of the
area's legal arena.
Louis 0. Frost looked me over from head to toe,
noted my long hair and beach bum appearance and
grumbled, "Newspaper man, huh? I guess you can
write my speeches for me."
The man we called Lou, or sometimes LOF, died
last week at age 76 after a long fight with stomach
cancer. When I went to work for him as an investiga-
tor never wrote a single speech for him Lou was
talking about retiring. It took him almost 20 more
years to make up his mind. Lou hung around long
enough to see kids he hired right out of law school
turn gray-haired. That's how much he loved his voca-
tion of serving the indigent accused of Nassau,
Duval and Clay counties. Bill Kent, a Jacksonville


assure you of one thing: We have nothing to fear in
voting Yes on 1. I seriously doubt any of our fire-
fighters or police officers will be eliminated due to
the approval of Amendment 1. I will not vote for any-
one in our county election that makes a decision to
cut our service professionals. I strongly encourage
you, the reader, to make a commitment to go to
your local government budget planning meetings
and make yourself heard. We must all take owner-
ship of the spending problem in our city and county
and do something about it.
As I read a piece of mail opposing Amendment 1
stating our schools can't afford it, I nearly choked. A
large part of the tax cut is exempt from the school
district taxes. Although the portability is not
exempt from the school district taxes, I can tell you
that if we don't get the economy moving again, the
schools will be the least of our worries. Besides,
many of these are transactions that wouldn't have
occurred if portability was not in place making it a
"wash" for schools. Do you know that when some-
one buys a home that sale employs between 8-12
people from the surveyor to the home inspector?
According to the National Association of Realtors,
most homebuyers spend roughly $9,000 in the first
year on products such as furniture, appliances,
flooring, landscaping and other home improvements
that would employ another 8-12 people and would
help keep our businesses in business and would
keep the money flowing into the local and state
budgets.
Vote Yes on, 1. It's good for the citizens and it's
good for business.

COMMUNITY THANKS h


'igo Garden' gratitude
Students at Yulee Middle School are eager to begin
work on the first of many projects for a Logo Garden.
Dr: Deonia Simmons, principal of YMS, along with the
Communities In Schools DreamTeam, have partnered
together to spearhead the beautification project.
Vanessa Lukas, volunteer for.the CIS Dream Team,
stated, 'This project has the potential to really show the
student body what can be done by a group of commu-


nity members working together." The campus is cur-
rently a blank canvas, and this project will not only
visually enhance the school grounds but will be a source
of pride to the entire school community.
We are especially grateful to the generous busi-
nesses that have stepped up to make this project a suc-
cess. Product donations from Page's Landscape
Nursery, Fernandina Mulch & Stone, George B.
Wittmer & Associates and Home Depot will cover the
majority of the supplies needed. Students of YMS con-


tributed the remainder of funds by competing in a
schoolwide "Pennies for Pansies" event. Congratulations
to the seventh graders for raising the most funds.
The first phase will begin in early February as stu-
dents, families, teachers and community volunteers
toil side-by-side to transform a grassy surface into a 36-
foot by 16-foot flower bed designed.to display "YMS."
Students in the CIS Dream Team will take over the
responsibility of maintaining the garden and have many
ideas for enlargement.


Dedicated to helping kids succeed in school, grad-
uate and prepare for a productive life, CIS programs pro-
vide tutoring, after-school academic programs, work-
force readiness skills, career exploration and individual
mentoring and coaching services at middle and high

Community celebrates MLK birthday


Oh, what a weekend of celebration, com-
ing together for the same cause. We have
come a longway. However, we know we
have a long, long way to go. Many communi-
ty members came together last weekend,
celebrating one of the greatest birthdays
ever, that of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The Nassau County NAACP branch spon-
sored the breakfast Saturday morning at
Episcopal Church, SCLC sponsored the
commemorative service at New Zion Baptist
Church Sunday evening and the Nassau
County NAACP Youth Council and .college
chapter sponsored the parade Monday after-
noon, followed by a peace vigil on the
Historic Courthouse steps.
Forty years after Dr. King's death, the
celebration is getting bigger and better: .
Romel Green, president of the NAACP
youth and college chapter, was in charge of
the parade and a good job he did in getting
people involved. There were more than 40
registered churches and organizations in
the parade. The Rev. Darien K Bolden
served as a grand marshal in the parade,
being chauffered by Bishop Terry Pugh.
A program after the parade was held at
the Martin Luther King Center. President
Romel Green was the speaker, giving points
on a day of celebration and remembrance.

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach
with my Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
one belonging to me and the other to my Lord. When the
last scene of my life shot before me, I looked back at the
footprints in the sand. I realized that at the lowest points
in my life, there was only one set of footprints. I questioned
the Lord, "Lord, you told me when I chose to follow you,
you would walk beside me all the way, but during the most
troublesome times of my life there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why you left me when I needed you most.
"He whispered, "My child, when you saw only one
set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Living out (


and onto the play-
grpund they ran.
Dozens of cooped up
children raced to be first on their
favorite piece of outdoor equip-
ment. For Sally it didn't seem to
matter much. Somehow, her
mind was preoccupied with some-
thing much greater.
"Come on Sally," her friend
Carol cried out. "I've saved you a
swing. You've got to hurry
though, I can't hold it forever."
"I'm coming," Sally replied, as
if suddenly waking up from a
dream, and then began running
half-heartedly across the busy
playground.
"What took you so long?"
Carol asked as she released the
last available swing she had
saved for her.
"Oh I don't know," Sally'
replied. "I guess I was just think-
ing about how I'm going to spend
the $10 my father gave me this
morning."
'Ten dollars!" Carol
exclaimed. "Your dad didn't give
you $10."
"Oh yes he did," Sally
answered. "And I think I know
just how I'm going to spend it."
"I don't believe you," Carol
blurted out again. "Let me see it."
So, with that Sally dropped her
feet to the ground and dragged
them through the dirt as her
swing slowed enough to let her
jump up and out.
As she began digging deep
into her pocket, her friend Carol's
swing came to a stop also, and
out she jumped anxious to see if
Sally was telling the truth. With
all the confidence in the world,
Sally grabbed on to the tightly
folded bill that was in her pocket
and pulled it out.

Teresa Wingate said she was

screaming to keep the person from
shooting again.
Keith Wingate heard his wife

walked over to Teresa Wingate
moments after the shooting, but
denied having shot the dog.
Keith Wingate asked to feel the


rifle to determine whether it had
recently been fired, but Farah
reportedly refused.
"(Keith) Wingate stated 'Farah'
became very irate and stated, 'You

a report of the incident.
Police believe John Farah is the
suspect. He has been released from
the Nassau County Jail on $15,004
bond.

Bicyclists"

hands numb
Q: I am an avid rider, but
my hands go numb
when I am cycling. Got any
thoughts?
A Symptoms of bicycling
induced ulnar tunnel
syndrome are commonly seen-
in people who do a lot of rid-
ing. The combination of pro-
longed gripping and constant
leaning on the handlebars can
lead to sustained pressure, on
the ulnar nerve, which causes
hand weakness and sensation
changes most commonly in
the fourth and fifth fingers.
Patients will often report
they have begun to notice it is
becoming more difficult to do
fine motor tasks with the
hand (such as writing and
picking up change) and that
their last two fingers are
numb. This is different from
carpal tunnel syndrome,
which causes numbness in
the first three fingers.
Another common neuro-
logic compression in cyclists
is caused by the hard seat and
leads to compression of the
pudendal nerve, which causes
numbness in the groin andj
upper thigh region.
A study of 169 participants
in a bicycle touring race
found that 22 had complaints
of hand numbness and weak-
ness of at least one week's
duration, while nearly 10 per-
cent reported they had had
symptoms for almost six
months.
Patients with this condition
show typical physical signs
and further diagnostic!
workup may not be needed.
However, if other conditions
are suspected or need to be
ruled out, then radiographs,
MRI or nerve conduction
studies may be required.
Treatment of bicycle
induced ulnar tunnel syn-
drome usually involves rest,
splinting, padded gloves and
anti-inflammatory medica-
tions. The duration of symp-
toms often signals the likely
duration until recovery; that
is, the longer you have it, the
longer it takes to get better.
Riders are encouraged to
seek changes in position with
the handlebars, such as lean-
ing on the elbows instead of
the hands. Recovery is usual-
ly complete without a need for
surgical treatment.
, I got kneed in the thigh
playing basketball.
Alt ough is was hard to walk
and run, I finished out the
game. When I got home, I
kept my knee straight and put
ice on it overnight. I am still
sore and it's been almost a
week. What should I have
done differently?
A. Once you were hurt,
you should have defi-
nitely called it a night and
stopped playing. A deep thigh
contusion leads to damaged
muscle tissue and bleeding.
Continuing to try and tough it
out only made things worse.
Next to occur in the cas-
cade of events following
injury is an inflammatory
response and attempted heal-
ing through scarring. I agree
with putting ice on the muscle
to try and reduce this .
response, but you made a
small error keeping your
knee straight. Putting your
knee in a bent position keeps
the muscle in a more elongat-
ed position and makes it less
likely to tighten up and allows
any healing to occur out to
full length.
Typically the muscle is
more sore the next day, but
don't let this keep you from
getting things moving. Taking
the knee through a gentle
range of motion will again
help improve blood flow, heat
the muscle up and jump start
the healing process. Sports
creams, compression thigh
sleeves and over-the-counter
anti-inflammatories are other
measures that can help make
your thigh feelbetter.

High School girls basketball team
defeated Yulee Tuesday and Bolles
Wednesday.
Tuesday was the final game in
Pirate Gym for FBHS seniors India
Johnson, Haley Tan and Brittany
Schetrompf, who were honored
before the game. All three were
in double figures in the 57-51 vic-
tory over the visiting Yulee Lady
Hornets.
Johnson and Tan had 14 points
apiece and Schetrompf had 13.
Johnson also pulled down nine
rebounds and had six steals. She'
was 7-of-10 from the free-throw
line. Tan had eight rebounds, three
assists and five steals. Schetrompf
had three steals.
Whitney Small and Julia
Belcher had five rebounds each
and Small also had four steals.
"I knew it would be tough,"
FBHS Coach Mike Landtroop said.
"Playing a team three times in a
season always makes for a good
game. Our offense was producing
at every position in the first quar-
ter and then we started to struggle.
Yulee"s (Jennifer Pelham) pro-
duced offense, from beginning to
end and was very difficult to stop.
"The Pirates let Yulee gain a
one-point lead in the fourth quar-
ter and then came out with a very
strong defensive stand to gain our
lead back. Yulee put together some
strong runs but the Pirates defend-
ed their home court."
Pelham had 23 points to. lead
Yulee. Dee Dee DeBerry chipped
in nine points.
"We did not play our best game
against Fernandina," YHS Coach
Brian Shuster said. "We let them
get too many easy points early in
the first quarter. We dominated
them the second and third quar-
ters but we could not overcome
their early lead.
"We played very timid, which
isn't like us. I know the girls real-
ly wanted to play well. We got close
at the end but it wasn't enough.
Fernandina did an excellent job of
taking advantage of our mistakes
and trying to spread our defense.
"Despite losing our last two
games against Fernandina, I'm
hoping we can get a rematch in
the district tournament. It all
depends how the brackets are set
up."
Both teams play in the District
4-3A tournament at Ribault next
week.
"No matter how well we do in

the tournament, our season has
been a success," Shuster said.
"Last year, you could count our
wins on one hand and still have a
finger left over. Now, we are tied for
second place in the district, have
double-digit wins and a winning
season. We can compete with any-
body.
"I'm proud of this team, no mat-
ter what the outcome of this
game."
Yulee (13-5). will close out the
regular season tonight at Baker
county.
"We would like to get even for
our earlier loss," Shuster said.
The regular season ended with
another win for the Lady Pirates


Wednesday. They defeated Bolles
47-39.
"Down by nine at the half, the
Pirates never gave up and kept
believing," Landtroop said. "We
changed our defense and made
some adjustments at half and came
out ready to play. We closed the
gap to two points by the end of the
third quarter.
"Whitney Small had a couple
of three-pointers to shift the
momentum of the game to the
Pirates and, once we got the lead,
we did not let up.
"I am very proud of this group
for their wonderful attitudes and
never-give-up style of play. We have
finished the regular season at 17-


5 and are ready to gear up for the
playoffs."
Johnson had 19 points, six
rebounds and four steals and was
perfect at the foul line (4-for-4).
Tan had 16 points, six rebounds,
three assists and two steals. Small
had six points, two rebounds, an
assist and a block. Ebony Peterson
pulled down six boards and had
two steals. Lindsey Young had four
rebounds.
The FBHS boys (14-6 overall
and 5-3 in the district) edged the
West Nassau Warriors 44-43 Tues-
day in Callahan.
"We struggled throughout
offensively with Carlos Holcey and
Jake Brogdon giving us just


enough to get us by," FBHS Coach
Matt Schreiber said. "Trey
Kublbock hit a huge basket from
about 10 feet with about a minute
to play and them it was just a mat-
ter of holding on until time ran out.
It was an ugly road win which is
beautiful to me."
Brogdon and Holcey both had
15 points. Holcey had six rebounds
and five assists. Kublbock finished
with six points, eight rebounds,
two assists and two blocks.
The Pirates traveled to Bolles
Thursday and host Bishop Snyder
and former FBHS Coach Lou
Pereira tonight. Games are at 6
p.m. (junior varsity) and 7:30 p.m.
(varsity).

Cooksey's out,


Whittenburg's in


again at Hilliard

DAN SHANKS
Community Newspapers
After a brief and tumultuous tenure, Hilliard foot-
ball coach Al1Cooksey was terminated last week, and
with the help of what Hilliard Middle-Senior High
School Principal Dale Braddock called a "miracu-
lous" recovery, PaulWhittenburg is ready to reassume
his coaching duties.
Whittenburg was unable to coach the football
team in the 2007 season, due to some serious health
issues that left him in the hospital for about four
months at the beginning of the year.
"Through the grace of God and the prayers of a
whole lot of Hilliard people, (Whittenburg is healthy
again)," Braddock said.
At the end of November, Whittenburg expressed
the desire to coach the football team in 2008.
Braddock said he had no idea that Whittenburg would
make such a speedy recovery, but it is very clear to-
him that Whittenburg is ready to lead the Flashes foot-
ball team.
"Coach Whittenburg is getting stronger every-.
day," Braddock said. "We want him to take it easy. But
I know if he says he can get it done, he can get it done.
Coach has invested 30 years into the Hilliard com-
munity and the program. If the season started today,
(Whittenburg) would be the coach." Braddock added
that Whittenburg is extremely determined to get
back on the field, and he is already leading the foot-
ball players in the weight room.
Braddock also said that Whittenburg will coach the
weightlifting team in the spring. According to
Braddock, the only thing that would keep-
Whittenburg from coaching is if his health worsened-
to the point where he would be unable to coach.
In Whittenburg's absence, Cooksey was hired to
coach the football team back in April. Cooksey, who:

also taught turf management, was relieved of his
teaching and coaching duties on Jan. 17. Cooksey
said he understood why the Hilliard community
wanted Whittenburg back as head coach. In fact,
Braddock said that Cooksey was made aware that
Whittenburg would get his coaching position back,
providing that he was healthy enough to coach. But
Cooksey said he didn't understand why he couldn't
have stayed on as a teacher for the remainder of the
school year.
"It was such a surprise to me," Cooksey said.
"I'm just surprised that they didn't at least reassign
me somewhere and let me finish out the school year.
I'm quite shocked about that." He also said that he
wasn't told he was being let go.
According to section four of Florida Statute
1012.33 (3) (a), "For any person newly employed as
a member of. the instructional staff after June 30,
1997, the initial annual contract shall include a 97-day

"We're happy to finish district
wrestling undefeated among all of
the district teams," FBHS Coach
Mark Durr'said. "However, we know
it will not be any walk in the park at
the district tournament. We will be
the team with a bull's eye on our
back, we know that other teams will
be gunning for us.
"Our job is to be ready to wrestle
like we are capable of and the rest
will work itself out. This is a team
sport, we need all of our weight
classes to come through.
"We feel really strong with some
of our classes like 171 (Donnie) and
215 (Jack). We like our chances at
all the'other classes if they work hard
for the next couple of weeks. We will
be ready to go Feb. 2."


ee's contract may be terminated without cause or the
employee may resign without breach of contract."
Cooksey said that his 97th day was Jan. 17.
Without getting into specifics, Braddock said that
the timing of Cooksey's departure will actually give
the coach an advantage next season. Since Cooksey
wants to be a head coach somewhere next year,
Braddock said he will have a head start wherever he
ends up.
"It's just an advantage for any coach to start work-
ing in January," Braddock said. "High school athletics
in the state of Florida are so competitive that any foot-
ball coach has to be working in January, or they
have no chance of playing in December.
"Coach Cooksey is a man of strong character,
and he knows that when God closes one door, he.
opens another usually bigger and better. Our
school family wishes him and his family only the
best."

Sea trout soon



off limits in area


ea trout will be off limits
in less than a week in
Northeast Florida waters
and the ban lasts through
the entire month of February.
Speck fishermen will need to
take special care in releasing
hooked sea trout so they will
have an excellent chance in sur-
viving.
Recent cold fronts have
dropped water temperatures in
the backwater into the mid 50s,
which should find sea trout
schooling in deep holes this
weekend. One of the best trout
holes is the deep waters sur-
rounding the Nassau Bridge.
Fishermen will find fast seatrout
action during the last of the
incoming tide while drifting
'shrimp deep under a.trout float.
Be sure to clieck with local bait
and tackle shops the day before
the weekend to make sure that
they have plenty of live shrimp
available.
A high tide on Saturday
arrives at 11:30 a.m., offering a
perfect tide for fishing for sea
trout in the morning and redfish
in the afternoon.


Look for
redfish in
the flooding
marshes
during the
last few
hours of the
incoming
tide. Cast an
in-line spin-
Terry Lacoss ner in a char-
treuse color
pattern.
ONTHE Look for red-
WATER fish to
school a few
hours after the tide begins to fall.
Fish with Berkley Gulp shrimp
dead on the bottom and at the
deep sides of boat docks and oys-
ter bars.
Offshore fishermen can
expect fast action with black sea
bass at FA, FC and KBY fish
havens. Kingfish are still holding
in water depths of 90-120 feet.
The Elton Bottom is an excellent
choice for winter trolling for king
mackerel.
A full moon arrived Tuesday
with the next full moon arriving
Feb. 21. Increased bedding


SPECIAL TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Scott Hood, left, is pictured with a beautiful eight-point, 145-pound deer he shot during a past hunting trip to Folkston, Ga.
Scott is a member of the Toledo Hunt Club, where members enjoyed a great hunting season. Sea trout fishing will be closed in
Northeast Florida waters during the entire month of February. Right, Karen Goyette hooked this nice Amelia Island speck while
fishing with her brother, Rob Goyette.


action should begin for trophy-
size largemouth bass beginning
this weekend and right up
through the full moon in
February. Look for small ponds
and lakes in Northeast Florida to
hold increased bass fishing


action, where lucky fishermen
may hook into the bass of a life-
time.
One of the best fishing tactics
for big bass this weekend is
working a minnow-type plug, like
the Smithwick "Rattling Rogue,"


over submerged grass beds in
shallow water.

The News-Leader encourages
local anglers to submit photo-
graphs of their catches. The News-
Leader will publish them in this


space on Fridays. E-mail photos to
bjones@fbnewsleadercom, mail
them to P.O. Box 766, Fernandina
Beach, FL 32035, or drop them by
the office at 511 Ash St. in
Fernandina Beach. Contact Beth

For the News-Leader
onnie Ramsbottom is one of
Amelia Island's half-time residents,
dividing her time between here and
Macon, Ga.
On Amelia she works from a wonderful stu-
dio overlooking from high above the Atlantic
Ocean. Many collectors from the area have
acquired her more traditional work and may be
surprised at the twists and turns her work has,
taken in the last year.
After choosing to devote herself to a life of
creating art she quit the corporate world and
went back to school to study art. After some life,
threatening health issues, Ramsbottom began
painting in earnest.
I A second close call and a miraculous
recovery inspired her to begin to paint images
which she felt needed expressing taking
up the challenge of painting with a palette
knife, approaching the canvas without prelimi-
nary planning, and letting her own knowledge
of painting take over on a more instinctive
level.
While she is currently assisting her husband
in his stroke recovery she is still preparing new
work for the opening of her show on March 8, "I
Am Woman," further illustrating her determina-
tion to handle whatever life throws her way.
Her new paintings seem to reflect the very
souls of-the women who seem to appear from
the canvas's surface almost as with a life of
their own.
These are strong women with strong person-
alities some joyful, some that you feel the
struggles that have preceded them and shaped
their inner strength.
The show will open with a reception on
March 8 and continue through April 13 at 218A
Ash St. Call 491-8040.

ing off parable rockets that fizzle
out. Nicole Kidman stars as a
mom fighting off alien spores for
herself and her son, Daniel Craig
is her current squeeze, Jeremy
Northam her ominous ex-hus-
band, Jeffrey Wright the brilliant
scientist who solves everything in
two concise speeches, and
Jackson Bond is Kidman's young
son. The actors do what they can
with a plot that we concede must
be implausible but does not nec-
essarily have to upstage the Mad
magazine version. Rating: **
RocketScence
(Comedy. R.101m.. 2007)
Light-hearted, smart high
school comedy beginning when a
debate champ freezes on stage
and his pretty partner (Anna
Kendrick) chooses a stuttering
nerd (Reece Daniel Thompson)
as his replacement. The director,
Jeffrey Blitz, obviously learned a
lot about teenage insecurity from
his first film, the Oscar-nominated
"Spellbound" (2002), about the
National Spelling Bee. A lot better

Daddy Day Camp
(Comedy. PG. 93m.. 2007)
Cuba Gooding Jr. steps into
Eddie Murphy's role in this mis-
guided sequel to "Daddy Day
Care" and makes a film choice
that demeans his obvious acting
ability. The acting is atrocious.

Mr.Woodcock
(Comedy. PG-13. 87m.. 2007)
Billy Bob Thornton in full "Bad
Santa" mode in an uneasy come-
dy about an adult (Seann William
Scott) who returns home to dis-
cover his mother (Susan Saran-
don) is planning to marry the gym
teacher (Thornton) who made his
high school days a living hell.
Thornton makes no compromises
and takes no prisoners when he
plays Woodcock. He's a hateful
jerk. That makes the movie bet-
ter, actually, than if we sensed a
heart of gold. Rating: ***
310 toYuma
(Western. R. 117m.. 2007)
Christian Bale plays an
Easterner who lost a leg in the
Civil War and has now come to
the.Arizona territory to try ranch-
ing. Russell Crowe plays the
vicious leader of a gang feared in
the territory. Almost by unlucky
fate, the rancher joins a posse to
bring the killer to a nearby town
where he will be taken by train to
. prison. Splendid dialogue and
acting, also by Peter Fonda, Ben
Foster and Gretchen Mol, restore
the wounded heart of the
Western and return it to its glory
days. Directed by James
Mangold ("Walk the Line").
